Was  in Too  Much   Haste   to   Serve
Railway' Company   and   is  Now
Called Upon to Recant.
Victoria.'-AIarch 22.—An interesting condition of a .Tail's exists here today. The
British Columbia board of trade has revolted against the domination of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, and yesterday and today tho board has been
attempting to vomit forth a resolution
which was passed a year ago, protesting
against the granting of a charier (o tho
promoters of the Kettle llivor Valley
Two weeks ago the council of tho board
decided that the interests of Victoria demanded that a special meeting of the
V board should be held for the purpose of
taking up the question of the Kettle
River Valley charter. It is now generally
known, even here in Victoria, that there
is not the remotest chance of the Victoria,
Vaneou ver & Eastern rail way being built.
It is also known that the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company is building
into Boundary Creek. But it happens that the Canadian Pacific
line is going into the „ new district
from the east, and as there is' no hope of
the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern being
built, the local merchants see that if they
are to get into Boundary at all it must be
over the road which a year ago the board
did" all iu its power to kill.
The meeting to consider the railway
question was .called yesterday, when a
motion was made to rescind the resolution passed a year ago, at the instance of
the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's'
• officials, in which the members of the Dominion house ; were urged to refuse a
charter tb the Kettle River Valley promoters. The Canadian Pacific railway's
forces were not prepared however to give
up without a fight, and an amendment
was introduced to the effect -that it
was not to the interests of Kootenay that
it should have railway connection with
the south. The odd thing in connection
with the amendment is that it is the first
time that the members of the Victoria
board of trade have been called upon to
pass any resolution or amendment iu the
interest of any other section of the Province than Victoria.
Those who are in; favor of the original
motion are confident that, they  will be
able to defeat the forces of the Cauadian
-Pacific, and get the board to- reverse its
V     position upon the question  of the Kettle

prevails at Bristol and"* further trouble is
feared. Warrants have been issued
for general Walker and some of the other
parties. The contest, between Walker
and Rhea in the canvass last fall was one
of the bitterest that ever took place in
Virginia, pistols having been drawn several times between the candidates while
speaking to the voters. The contests,
during the taking of testimony for the
last sixty days, have been frequent and
each side has accused the other of fraudulent practices. Rhea's friends say that
Walker's shooting of Hamilton was uncalled for aud cowardly. Walker's friends
say that he was being bull-dozed as part
of a deep-laid scheme to get rid of him,
because he had made out a strong case of
fraud in the election last fall.

"Kid" Harker knocked Jack Garrigout
in the eleventh round at Denver, Colorado, last night. The fight was a very
pretty one and neither had an advantage
until the sixth round, when Garrig received a cut over the left eye, the blood
interfering with his sight? In the eleventh
rouud Parker landed a left swing under
the left ear,* which put Garrig out.
The health authorities of Rochester,
New York, discovered late last night that
Augus McRae, late United States cavalryman, who came here from Alontana a few
days ago, was afflicted with smallpox. He
was removed to the hospital and the inmates of the housb were put under quarantine. No fear of any serious results
from this case is felt, as it was discovered
in time aud prompt action taken.
An Intercolonial, freight train was buried under an avalanche from a cliff overlooking Levis yesterday. The accident^
occurred close to the scene of several"
fatalities from the same cause four years

smaller avalanche fell, burying a number
of men. All were dug out without loss of

Bloodshed.in Virginia.
Richmond, Alarch 22.—While taking depositions at Bristol last night in the Rhea-
Walker congress contest case, general
James A. Walker, republican, former congressman, became involved in a controversy with W. S. Hamilton, attorney for
democratic congressman William F.
Rhea. Hamilton, advauciug on general
Walker, was shot in the abdomen, the
wound probably being mortal. Walker
was shot twice in the right shoulder. The
wounds of general Walker are serious,
but not mortal. His wounds are supposed
to have been made by a pistol in the
hands of G. E. Davis, private secretary of
congressman   Rhea.      Great  excitement

Chicago, Alarch 22.—The recent clash
between the Salvation Army and the Volunteers during a street parade of the latter headed by general Ballington Booth
has resulted in a deal of trouble between
the two organizations. The showing by
a magic lantern of a death-bed picture of
Ballington Booth's mother at the moment
of his appearance before the Salvation-
Army headquarters has caused much bit-;
terhess, and at a council of the general
officers of the Volunteers the following
statementwas given out: :.    •
We, the undersigned staff and field
commanding officers, to the number of
seventy-seven, assembled in regimental
colors, desire to express our opinion that,
while it will be generally conceded by the
many friends and associates of the Volunteers that general and Mrs.. Ballington
Booth have acted with discretion in withholding from the press and the platform
their feelings respecting tbe recent actions of the Salvation Army, wishing to
avoid public controversy, yet, in justice
to the many Volunteers and their friends-
in and arouud'Chicago, aud in contradiction of certain statements, it is only right:
and fair we should express our admiration of the christian spirit ex-,
hibited by the Volunteers in the face of
the manifestations of an unchristian and
unamerican spirit on the part of the Salvationists yesterday. We were having a
peaceable parade, witnessed by hundreds
of people, when we were grieved and
shocked to witness the action of certain
officers of the Salvation Army. General
Booth's mother's picture was put on the
screen just as we■:passed the Salvation
Army headquarters purposely to create
the impression that she and he made
vows to the Salvation Army on her deathbed, when, as we all know, at the time of
her death he was in the United States.

The Nelson & Bedlington Railway Running
Powers Over Any Portion of the
Crow's Nest Pass Railway.
Rumors.have been in circulation for a
week to the effect that the railway committee of the privy council had granted
the application ofthe Nelson & Bedlington Railway Company for running powers
oyer the Crovv's Nest Pass railway for, a
short distance near the lower end of
Kootenay lake. A local paper printed
the rumor as a statement of fact on Friday. The Tribune wired Hewitt Bostock, Al. P., ait Ottawa, on Friday, for
definite information, and with his usual
promptness the answer was filed in the
Canadian Pacific telegraph office at
Ottawa. Although the answer was filed
on Saturday, it was not delivered to The
TbiBtrNE until today. The "following is
the reply:  ;
y Ottawa,  Alarch 18.—The Tribune, Nelson :' The application of the Nelson &
Bedlington railway for running powers
over the Crow's Nest Pass road for nine
miles is still before the railway committee,
no order having been passed. The depart-
'■ meut of.railvvays and canals has not yet
;;:been advised whether the two companies
have  cbmeotb any agreement, as   they
were asked to do.   The decision  of the
;CO_ntn ittee^ al though not f brnially - made,
"was that the application should hot be
granted ; but time was given both parties
to come to an agreement.:
hemmefl    in   by    the    fire.     He    went
across gully and ridge in his search, until at last he saw his  stock at some little
distance ahead.   He   was   more than astonished upou comiug up to the group to
find not only his cattle and colts, but a
deer, three wild  cats, a coyote and several rabbits, all alive,  and apparently in
no fear of   him.    They watched his approach   with   indifference,   the   timidity
gone from   the   big-eyed   deer, no   more
venom in the wild-cat's purr, and honesty
shining  in the gray  coyote's face.   The;
rabbits sat on their haunches, as meek as
the pets of children.   But the poor coyote
was in pain, and as the farmer came close
the erstwhile robber of the roost dragged
his helpless hindquarters toward the man
in   mute   supplication, v The legs  of the
animal had been frightfully burned.   The
rancher was in no mood to make friends
of such strange creatures,  and  at once
drove the stock through  the smoldering
brush, the deer going along with the cattle,   the   rabbits   hopping  along at  the
rancher's  heels,  the   wildcats   slouching
along behind, and  the coyote, unable to"
follow, whining a pathetic appeal for succor.   When the burning field  was passed I
the deer broke into a run for the distant
hills, the rabbits were away like a flash,
and  the old  defiance  and "snarling leer
came back to the wildcats^ who scorned
to  make a show of haste.   They walked
slowly out of sight.

Ottawa, Alarch 22i"-^Sir WiffridLLaurier
spoke for two hours, in i*eplying to sir
Charles Tupper^ yes.tiei.day afternoon. He
pose by its redistribution bill to make it a
gerryniauder act. As for the senate reform act, the latter wOuld be first introduced iii the senate. The consent of the
senate, to make it more perfect, was
heces.sary. He didnot 'believe in retaliation, but would propose to legislate for
Canada from within, aud not from
without. He did not agree with
sir Charles that the Washington
commission should have terminated, and
not adjourned. What his government
did -was to take the responsibility of
breaking the session of the coramission,
and to give tifneto the British and American governments to come to some amicable settlement.
Hon. Air. Foster followed, showing that
the government had not reduced the expenditures as nrorftised, and that the changes
in the tariff Were trivial.

Would Take" Away Its Conscience.
Toronto, Alarch 22.— The World, which
is edited by a member of parliament,
says: "Sir Wilfrid Laurier's propo*-ed
senate reform is a half-digested measure,
which will not stand critical examination
He proposes to make the senate the lift-
less thing it was during the Conservative
regime. He proposes to take away its
conscience, so that it will pass every
"nefarious" measure the politicians of the
house may bring forward. As between
unity aud independence between the
commons and the senate, the country
much prefers the latter."
The Metal Market.
New York, Alarch 22.—Silver was
stronger yesterday. The local quotation
was 59(»00c. Lead ou exchange was $4.40
@$4.50. The firm that fixes the selling
price for miners and smelters quoted lead
at $4.20 at the close.
The working force on the Ohio on Ten
Mile has been increased*
.Wprk/wga commenced last week on the
Alarch Bird, adjoining the Mollie Hughes
gr.pu/p, and owned by tValker, Baker and
AlcAlillaii of . New Denver. It has the
Pinto lead of the'Alollie Hughes group
fully exposed* and is a pi'oinising prospect.
J. Tingling of, Silverton bay returned
fromTacpma, whet'e he went pn busiiiess
in connection with the L II group on
ISight Mile. This property will be developed by a,company as spon as the show
goes off. It has high values in gold and
The Storm, adjoining the Noonday on
Galena Farm, is developing into a fine
propositions It is owned by.C. McNichoil
of Silverton and 1$. A.-Van Dorn of New
Denver. It has the Noonday lead running
through it, and a few days ago eighteen
inches of clem ore were exposed.
Now that the Arlington group on
Springer creek has passed into the hands
of a Boston Company, the road up the
creek will be pushed to completion.
Fewer properties in the camp have a better showing than the Arlington. It is a
shaft proposition and more or less water
has to be controlled, which will make a
pumping plant necessary. With the
working of the Arlington, the Speculator,
Lilly B, Regina, Portland aud other
claims in the neighborhood will be
brought into prominence.

Was a success, netting $Ji6 to the band
fund. The main feature of the programme was a two-act drama entitled
"Our Bachelor Boys," written for the occasion by W. Thomlinson.
Are Not Encouraged.
The advocates of more stringent Sunday observance regulations in Nelsou are
not meeting with any encouragement
from the business men of this city. Those
who have lived iu Nelsou any length of
time consider that Nelsou compares favorably with any other city in the proviuee,
and they deprecate any movement which
tends to advertise the fact that Nelsou is
anythiug but an orderly town. It is safe
to say that the Sunday observance movement will die a premature deatb, because
the people will not take it or its promoters
If  the people of Nelson will subscribe
something like $1000 for the building of a
drillshed and armory for the local company of Kootenay rifles, and do it at once
they may be able to secure for Nelson the
advantage   of  being  designated as   the
headquarters for the several companies of
rifles scattered throughout Kootenay.
-   The provincial government has already
signified   its   willingness   to  set aside a
couple of lots on Victoria street between
Stanley and Kootenay streets and an effort will now be made to put up a building 50x100  feet.   Just what  plan will be
adopted for raising the money has not yet
been decieed  upon.   If  the members of
the local  company receive aid from the
Dominion authorities it will not amount
to more than $300 at the outside and possibly not more than $250.   The difficulty    -
is, however, that if this assistance is accepted the Dominion authorities  will demand an absolute title to the land and
buildings, so that for its advance of possibly. $300 it would require a title to property worth about $2500.
In view of the small amount of the Dominion government's grant and the condition which must attach to it, it has occurred to some of the most enthusiastic
members of the company that the better
plan would be to organize a small stock
company, issuing stock to subscribers in'
proportion to   their  subscriptions.   The
company when organized could hold the
property  in   trust   for   the   local  company,   and   the   charges   in   connection
with      the      building     of     the     shed
and armory could be repaid out of the
company, funds and from the proceeds of
rentals  for concerts or dances.   The income of the company, consisting of the
pay of 42 men and three officers would
amount to $320 per annum.   The custom
in all militia companies is to fund this
money,- so that at the end of the year the
company would have available an amount
greater than the government grant which
could  be applied upon  the cost  of  the
; building and enable them to keep the title .    °
to the property vested in the company in-     ,
stead of in the Dominion government.
If something of this nature is done the
company would be in a much  better position than if it accepted the Dominion    ■
grant even if it is secured, and it is likely    - .
that the matter will be placed before the
citizens in this light.

Liberal Association ol Nelson wants to  "boost" Mi's Grallilifer, all well and good ;  but a business organization had better  draw the line at "boosting" aspiring  politicians, more especially politicians  who have never been known to perforin a  public^spirited act in their lives.  W. A. Gatj.iher is being "boosted'* in  order to be the candidate of the Liberal  party at the next general election. Kootenay is deserving better treatment at the  bands of the Liberals.  Daily Editjon. ...  WkbklV* Edition.   Fikst Yeah, No. 67  . Seventh Ykak, No. 18  The Liberal Association of Nelson has  decided to send W. A. Galliher, the president of the association, to Ottawa as a  delegate to obtain from the Dominion  government an appropriation for a public  building at Nelson, and the members of  the South Kootenay Board of Trade are  asked to meet and endorse the action of the  political association. Mr. Galliher only  became a member of the board of trade a  week ago, so he cannot, in any sense, be  classed as either a representative or an  j tin' lien fcial ruetp ber ofthe board.   If the  There are politicians in Kootenay who  believe that if the Conservatives would  come out in favor of a Canadian mint,  Canadian smelting Of Canadian ores, an  export duty on logs and wood-pulp that  would be prohibitive, government ownership of all railways, and,no free list for  any manufactured products* that they,  would sweep the country at the next  election. ���         ,_  The opponents of the chairman of the  public works committee say he is too  much of a self-seeker to be a useful member of the council; that no public work is  looked on favorably unless it will enhance  the value of his own or his company's  real estate holdings. On the other hand,  his friends say he is the only member of  the council that knows what the city  needs, and that if he had been elected  mayor, instead of Mr. Neelands, there  would be fewer complaints heard of mismanagement and inactiveness. : '  Five Carloads Last Week*  [Moyie Leader, March. 18th.J  The ore shipments from the St. Eugene  mine last week were five carloads, or 10(i  tons. The road between the mine and  the siding is breaking up at a rapid rate  thus rendering the hauling of ore almost  impossible, aud it is likely that the shipments from that property will be light  until the roads are fit for wagoning, or  the tramway is put in. However, the  condition of the roads does not in any  way affect the Lake Shore, and shipments  from that property will continue as usual.  The owners will ship another carload the  first of next week.  THE  FRENCH  WOMAN'S   MAKE-UP.  Art of Applying Rouge so That its Use  Will Not Proclaim Itself.  "If women will insist on making up,  why don't they take the pains to do it  artistically ?" demanded the woman just  back from Paris. "Keally the most noticeable feature about the women one sees in  New York, after a trip abroad, is the  careless way they daub tlieir faces with  paint and powder. Now, the Parisian  woman learns the art, and applies it as  such."  "Do tell us about it," said one of her  friends.  "In the first place," replied the traveler,  "a woman who knows how the thing is  done gets the proper colors. She never  buys for day use a paint with a purple  tinge. If she is a brunette she gets powder and rouge for brunettes, while if she  is a blonde she buys blonde materials.  These come for both day and evening  use, and, of course, she must put  them on in the light in which  she is to appear. The first thing  she does after getting the proper materials is to wash her face with a tiny bit of  soap on the cloth, then rinse in clear water  and dry with a soft towel. If it is to be a  day appearance, let her go to the brightest window in the room and, with the assistance of her hand mirror, apply her  make-up. The rouge for day use is a  liquid and should be applied with a bit of  soft rag. All that is required is a little  dab on the upper part of the cheeks,  which is promptly rubbed down, and  blended with the fingers; Then several  little dabs are given on the lower part of  the cheek, on the jawbone, that must be  rubbed up and under. Never color, the  little spot immediately in front of the ear  or the centre of the cheek, for nature  never does. The next step is to fix the  lips, and the color for them is always different from that used on the cheeks and  is always liquid. This should be put on  very carefully and so as to appear darker  on the inner edge. Now comes the powder, which should be put on.-the forehead  and rubbed off until there is none to be  seen. Then the slightest suspicion is rubbed on the nose and around the mouth,  and as promptly rubbed off, as the object  is only to take off the shine.  "After this~you go to the brows and eyelashes, and, whatever else you do, don't  use a pencil for the daytime. You can  buy a little box with a/cunning littlemir-  ror in the top. and a cunning little brow  brush and a bar of what appears to be India ink in the bottom. That =isthe one  and only thing used by the French  woman. "The.brush is moistened, rubbed,  on the Ihdia-ink.looking stuff, and'then  applied- to the brow and lashes, but it  must be put on the hair'andvhot on the  skin.-    "-       ' V      *.       . ;   V'     .  "That is tHe.way the-French, woman  gets herself up for her appearance.dnring  the, day, or .when she is to appearamder.  the. electric light.   And she generally is  clever enough to wear a, hat which.shades  her face just a.bit at least. V Of course men;  can only surmise! they can never say positively that she paints:. .She keeps them,  guessing, and.they like that.".  " "But how. about the make-up for evening wear?"   asked her   two friends as she  stopped  speakiug and applied herself to,  the third course of her luncheon.  "Oh, well, almost any of these women  we see about us would pass muster in gas  or candle light. That is one reason tliey  look like caricatures. They made up in a  dark*room with the lights turned on, and  they are really now, all of them, looking  at the make-up of every other woman  -with disgust and- congratulating them^  selveson knowing jtist how the thing is  projperly done; Almost any rouge or  _^:oVwder--wilLdO-for -gas or^candle-light,  but itvis. best to apply it after the daylight fashion, only making it more intense.  But wben it comes- to electric lights thereV  must be no careless work. If you do, it is  a dead give away."

"There    are   more   ways   than  one of.  wrecking a  respectable,  well-established  weekly newspaper, and I  was in at the  death  of  one which   was unique," said  Johnny-Flirusey at the regular meeting of  the Sun   Rise Club.     "I   was   knocking  around the mining towns of the West iu  'the-summer" of  '93   trying my  hand, at  prospecting when I   was . in  funds,   aud  when luck was against rue I published a  newspaper.   You see 1 started iu the business sticking typo and I could set up my  own   paper.     I  started  eight  different  papers that summer in as many towns,  and none of them ran for more than two  numbers.    When I balanced accounts late  in the fall I found that I had  two nearly  healed bullet wouuds and  titles to four  claims   which   might  have   been  worth  something, but they were not.    It struck  too that I was too delicate for that sort of  business.     My nerves were shattered and  I needed repose.   I thought longingly of  the quiet old shop in the East where I  learned to set type, to chronicle the movements of the hog market and the grain  and corn receipts and sales  thecal;  n.j$Mvay_pD  morningg.Cf uyBcJU e^to'vYJi'."^^^^'^^^^!^  gusEecf  ��.03oilei'towup \yasAthe strangest ,lhn<*nqJ:  "iri i"xtii.*e?of. jgobd,iatid;r ba*d��i?i;thpse!;d_iy^  thatIaeveosaw.^vVrt^had ..two.long1i-'t'-'eet--.'.  5s&eetihasfa1wiiysV��l_Ve^  ^alleyfw^nd":nQs..bo.o.m" 'town����� that.. -I*- lia.d;  ^Vtiiij^"^  ,Silo6n_vD 'gttii-lSling "��housg��� ]-��6x - minething?  *>worse..%It*wassupported.��by:the raen";\yhp'(  >^vor_ited iihrfhp. ^sv^n^df^^K^nllf  5Sat"uiTdaVVn.^  i*leastfotfpevskofttingt scr^.per.on���Baqk^ alley.  l;ysf i't'liv tlie"' instinct., ;pi(tHr&^l*a.m|5; - priu.t.e r,��  ���Vis.**s"pB,o.ri';as."I; "StTOC'kV%i;own^^I"aske.d': fbr a.

"The'staff cohsisted of three men and  four boys, and one of the former proved  to be Red Kelly, Avhom I had met Vvest.  Iveily was good now, and no one in the  office knew of his career. He tipped me  a wink when 1 came into the shop, and  later, when he could explain without "be*-  ing Overheard, he told .iuethat he vya.s in  hard.luck and asked me not to 'give hinl  away. I *_oOh found that whilei Kelly was  very good in the Advocate office, ttll pf  his friends after dark were in Back alley.  He was a born gambler, but he took  mighty good care that the respectable  people in town .shouldn't know it. Jack"-  son was a* mean nian. He knew that I  was at his mercy, and he rubbed it into  me hard. His supporters were among the  good people in town, and he cautioned us  to keep everything'low out of the paper.  I wish that I had saved a file of that advocate. It would prove amusing. Jackr  son had a text on his tongue in answer to  every complaint that' I made, but as I  had no other choice I was forced to stay  in the office and make the best of it.  "I grubbed along for two uiOhths writing locals and sticking type, when one  day Kelly came to me and said : "Here's  where we get Jackson. I was playing  faro last night in the Red Eagle on Back  alley when a dapper little Chicago drummer came in to try his luck. We celebrated pur winnings later, and he told me  that he had seen Jackson occasionally in a  faro joint in Chicago. Now what do you  think of that after all his good talk?  Jackson's explanation that he went to  Chicago once a month to see his invalid  mother is a fake. He has no invalid  mother. He is afraid to play faro here,  and; when the itch gets him he goes to  Chicago for it. Just keep this up your  sleeve as a club.'  " 'I wasn't so much surprised as Kelly  was for I had been keeping tabs on Jackson.   I knew he  was a scamp at heart.  'Jackson must have had hard luck at faro,  for he ran behind in his bills for the next  Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  two months, and because he didn't attend to it his advertising fell off. Kelly  and I had been staving off our board bills  until we were ashamed to go home. Jack-  sou came in on Tuesday and announced  that his mother was worse and that he  must leave at once. We went to press on  Friday.  " 'See here, Mr. Jackson, said Kelly,  'Flimsey and I haven't been paid for so  long that we don't know how money  looks. Now, unless you give uS something  on account we won't get your paper out.'  "'But I have only enough money to  pay my expenses to Chicago and back,'  said Jackson.  - " 'Then give us a benefit in your paper,'  said Kelly, and I wondered what his game  was.  " 'What do you mean ?' asked Jackson.  " 'Just give us a document assigning,to  Flimsey and me all the money that we  may get for new advertising in the next  number as a benefit to two esteemed employees.'  "There didn't seem to be much in such  a proposition for us, and Jackson was so  anxious to get at his faro bank that he  yielded and left town.  " 'You act as if you had struck it rich  Kelly.' said I when he got the document,  'but the lecture course has ended, and I  don't believe that you can scare up $2 of  new advertising.'     '  " 'My boy you are slow. Back alley is  full of friend's of mine who not only would  like to help me along, but who would be  mighty pleased to get an "ad" in the  Advocate.  I saw his scheme, and I laughed for the  first time in four months. We started  right in to canvass Back alley for ads.  Kelly's friends came up handsomely at  triple our usual rates, and I may confess  that I found au old -acquaintance/ or two  willing to have their names printed in so  respectable a paper. We were forced to  put in two extra sheets when we printed  the Advocate, and we ran off double the  usual edition. Our money had been collected in advance, and when we had sent  out the paper we went to our boarding  house and awaited results.

Dishonest Bookkeeping;  Neither Great Britain nor the United  States does what Canada does, namely,  maiutain a fictitious bookkeeping system:  If Britain or the United States spends  more than current revenue the extra  amount is stated plainly to be a deficit.  If Canada spends more than current rev-.  enue (and she has done so in nine out of  every ten years 'since confederation) it is  not called a deficit. The loss is put down  to a funny thing called capital account,  which is then calmly retired into the  background, while the politicians come  out with the rest of the figures and shout  "surplus ! " Thus it comes that despite a  large amount of alleged surplus during  bur national life, our net public debt has  reached two hundred and sixty million  dollars.

The paper went out in  a blaze of glory, however, and its last  edition sold better than any of its predecessors.

While here he made several changes in the plans ofthe company's  proposed new block, and got estimates of  the probable cost of the changes from  local contractors. These will be submitted to the company's architect in Winnipeg for approval, after which the plans  will be finally adopted and returned to  Nelson. Although the contract is not  .inally awarded, Mr. Chipman stated that  Nelson contractors would do the work.  John Nicholson was sentenced to one  months' imprisonment by magistrate  Crease this morning, on the charge of  stealing a sack of shores from J. F. Jacob-  son's feed store. The chief evidence  against Nicholson was that he was found  in the vicinity of the stolen sack and that  there was considerable shorts on the coat  which he wore when arrested. The information against Nicholson was laid by  policeman Jarvis.  Itufus A. Kimpton, a political boss over  in h.ast Kootenay, has secured the contract for carrying the mails between  Golden and Windermere.  John Gorton, the official pound-keeper,  reports pound receipts as having fallen  below the zero point.

A patent drill was put to work today iu  the face of the rock bluff on Victoria  street.
