That Nelsou is gradually forging ahead  in those essentials which go to  make a permanent town is evident to  anyone who chooses to make even a superficial review of its progress. Its supremacy as the commercial center of  Kootenay is now generally recognized,  the mere handling of the merchandise  arriving and departing over its railway  and steamboat lines furnishing employment for over 200 men. In a short time  the same supremacy will be conceded to  Nelson as a manufacturing point. At  present this element of future greatness  is yet in its infancy, but even at present  the working of raw materials into finished  and partly finished products in Nelson  provides employment for over 250 hands,  of whom all, save possibly 25, are adult  males earning the highest rale of wage in  tlieir callings in the Dominion of Canada.  First in importance to Nelson as an  employment furnishing industry is the  Hall Mines smelter. Operated to its  fullest capacity the smelter has 130 men  upon its payroll. At present only the  large copper furnace is being operated  but this alone finds employment for 75  men. With the lead stack and calciners  running another 35 men will be given  employment, and when the reverberatory  starts up the full -compliment will be  130 men. . '���' ���  Next in importance as a local industry  is the saw aiid planing mills and sash and  door factory of the Nelson Saw & Planing Mills, Limited, in and around the  mills [aud factory, and altogether aside  from the company's contracting business,  this industry furnishes employment to 30  men. The capacity of the .sawmill is  20,000 feet per day of ten hours aud the  growth of Nelson and the development of  the surrounding country has been such  that the mill has now sufficient -work  ahead to keep it running steadily  all summer. The company's factory is  the most complete in the province outside the coast cities, and an outside  market is found along the lines of the  Crow's-Nest Pass and Nelson & Fort  Sheppard railways for all kinds of sash  frames, doors, counters and turned work  'of-every description. Buildings'which  are in course of erection in Nelson will  keep the factory busy for the remainder  of the building season.  Another local sawmill is that operated  by-Bydges, Fisher & Co.    This mill has a  nne  SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 22, 1890.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $��.  last was 7S00 and the sales (.000. For  the month of June, whieli is the last completed month, the company's sales were  (51,(550 and the make 09,000, and in addition to this the stock of cigars in bond  has been run up' to 55,000, while the  v.'viiM. of tlie raw leaf in bond at present  is .-i.5').-i). The making of these cigars furnishes employment for sixteen men and  five boy.., and they make the highest  wages of any cigarmakers in Canada,  those in Kamloops alone getting as high  wages, tho Nelson and Kamloops union  rates being identical. Tliere is.another  noteworthy thing about the cigarmakers,  and that is their h(3urs of labor. They  nre all eight-hour men, and have been  working on the eight-hour basis for something like twenty years. The wages disbursed by the Kootenay Cigar Manufacturing Company now aggregate over $300  per week, and the territory tributary to  the company embraces the entire Kootenay and Boundary districts, the company's-nearest competitor being the factory at Kamloops.  Another local industry whieh is growing rapidly is the Nelson Brewery, which  is being operated by R. Reisterer & Co.  The brewery at present has a capacity of  fifteen barrels per day, but the demand  for the company's brew has so steadily  increased that it Avas found necessary  soine time ago to operate the brewery  night and day, thus increasing the output to thirty barrels in the twenty-four  hours. The territory supplied by the  Nelson brewery reaches to Cranbrook on  the Crow's Nest railway, to Salmo ou the  line of the Nelsoii & Fort Sheppard railway, as well-as points on the Columbia &  Kootenay and Slocan River branches of  the Canadian Pacific. The company is  uoav building Avhat Avill be the finest  brewery in Kootenay. It Avill be fitted  with all modern appliances, including a  six-ton refrigerating plant, and Avill be  the only brewery in Kootenay"with stOue  cellars. During the summer the company breAVS lager beer and porter, and  during the Avinter turns out ale.

Discussing the ship building A-ote the  right honorable .George J. Gosehen, first  lord of the admiralty, said that as there  had been no change in the xiolicy of foreign governments there Avas nothing to  induce the British government to.change  theirs, AA'hich AA'as to maintain equality  Avith the fleets of Russia and France combined. In whose programmes, howeA'er,  he saw no menace to England.  Alluding to the use bf electricity in the  navy, Mr. Gosehen said: "Both the  United States and Japan are uoav naval  poAvers, sufficiently important- to make  us think Ave ought to haA'e a naval attache in those countries. As an attache  to the Washington embassy the government is going to appoint au officer especially competent to deal-with electrical  matters."  During the consideration of the Avar  ofiice A'ote, dealing Avith the subject of  recruiting, George Wyndham, parliamentary secretary to the Avar office and  member for Dover, referring to the reproaches levelled against the government  for not entering into some agreement  with' the colonies, said it Avas difficult to  approach the colonies on the subject unless they displayed a disposition to -volunteer their assistance in "-sharing the  burdens of the empire. At the present  moment, however, proposals Avere being  submitted for Canada's consideration, the  nature of -which he could not now indicate.  CONCENTRATES.

MAKING READY FOR THE SPORTS  At Queen's. Club Today.  London, July 21.���The calm preceding  a battle  marked   the  eve  of   the international varsity struggle^ both  the London and  Brighton  tennis   resting   today  and harboring their strength   for tomorrow's   contest.      The   new- competitors  appeared   in the  Queen's  club  wliere a  score of workmen were engaged in fixing  up the track for tomorrow.    The demand  for seats has  long  since  exhausted  the  supply, and the exorbitant prices asked  by speculators have caused the management to refuse  all applications  so  that  tonight'��5 aud ��10 are vainly offered by  late  comers.    The  prospect is  that  tomorrow's contest Avill be close,:.and. avou  pr lost probably'by. one eA-ent.

At the Nelson Brick Manufacturing 'Cain-  pany's yardj Ayhich has a capacity of  12,000 brick a day, thei'e are tweh-e men  employed and the company lias orders  ahead for all the brick which it can turn  out. Oiie kiln of 150,000 is being burnt  now. In this kiln are 8000 pressed brick  for one of the buildings uOav in course of  erection hi Nelson. A second kiln of 200,-  000 brick is uoaa' being prepared.  The West Kootenay Brick & Lime  Company is Avorking a force of eleven  men at one of its Nelsoii yards, and at  the old Walters yard, which is being  worked for the company under contract,  thr_e men are Avorking. This company  has, perhaps, the best equipped brick  yards in the province, and turns out  both machine pressed and re-pressed  brick. To provide, largely for the local  consumption of brick, the company has  also a well-equipped yard at Balfour, and  at its lime quarry a force of thirteen men  is employed iu getting out lime rock for  the building trade of Nelson.  Possibly the greatest growth Avhicli  has marked any of Nelson's infant industries is that shown in the business-pf  the Kootenay Cigar Manufacturing Company, AA'hich is conducted by T. J. Sims.

WORK  OF PEACE CONFERENCE  Is Nearly Over.  Tin. HAguk, July 21.���Baron de Staal,  presided at   the  plenary  session  of .the  international peace conference  today  to  place the final seal upon the labors ofthe  first committee.    The point of Mr.  Kar-  nebeck's  report, dealing "with the prohibition of dropping  explosives  from  balloons   was  unanimously agreed to.    Tho  second   point  of  tlie prohibition of the  use    of   asphyxiating    projectiles    Avas  agreed to by all except the United States  and Great Britain, Avhose abstention nullifies  the agreement of tho:'others.    The  tliird point, which  relates  to  expanding  bullets, occupied the bigger part.of. the  sitting, owing to the question of the ilum- '  dum  bullet  used  by the British army.  Sir Julian  Pauncefote  expressed  regret  that  the   plenary  session   had  beeu  so  suddenly summoned as the British government had intended to  make  a  statement  regarding dum-dum bullets.    The  conference agreed to leave the minutes of  the session open for the insertion Of the >  British statement. .        ^  Mr.: Andrew D. White, the head of the *  United States delegation, then spoke in  opposition to the prohibition of such bulletsas the dum-dum. Mr. White's arguments made a great impression upon the  delegates, especially Avhen he explained  that the adoption of the proposal, as submitted, Avoiild not preA'ent the use of  another'bullet'-.-, which had already been  invented and--which AA'ould attain the  same end as'.the dum-dum, but in a mucli  more cruel manner. The missile, Mr-  White said, Avas outside the specific definitions of the president's proposal.  Captain Crozier, military member of  the United States delegation, proposed as  a substitute the following : "The use of  bullets should be prohibited Avliich inflict  unnecessarily cruel injuries, such as ex- ;\:  plosiA'e bullets and in general every kind  of bullet exceeding the limits necessary ,  to put a man immediately hoi-s de  combat." ���"���:/���'���        ' '���::.y(-1-:2  A long discussion ensued as to Avhether;  a vote should be taken upon the original l-;  proposition or captain Crozier's. *The} ;  latter was finally chosen to be A**oted iip-L--y  on, as s'ir Julian Pauncefote announced l  that he Avould accept captain Crojcier'sl^  proposal, but it A.'as rejected by a vote of y(-  17 to 8.

Tiik provincial government sliould  compel the railway company to live up  to its original agreement, and the city  council should urge that such steps be  taken.

A miner named Hart/-, living in Oakland, Calefornia, has had Avhat is probably the most remarkable fall that a man
ever experienced and lived to tell about.
That he could be precipitated a distance

sounds fishy, but it is true, and the shaft
down wliidi he fell and himself prove the
assertion. Ifc was last April that Frederick llarti- had this Experience. He' is
badly bruised, but not a bone in his body
was broken, and he will recover. Hartz's
story of his thrilling experience is best
told in his owif language, and it is as
"I was working in the Mount Jefferson
mine in Toulunine county. I had been
there about a month and was considered
quite a old hand for that place, for the
fact was that few men would stay in the
mine after they became aware of the dangers that surrounded the work. They
would generally work a day or two and
then demand tlieir 'time' and leave, usually with very few words in the way of
"On the day that I mentioned I was

I drew myself together and braced my

"Either the swift descent, or being
beaten against the sides of the shaft, or
the terrible fright, or all these combined

Palermo has not yet got OA-er the due

pretender presented himself at a dinnerparty given by an Italian duchess there
in white knee-breeches, Avhite silk stockings, white waistcoat, velvet smoking

Admiral of the Fleet sir Harry Keppel,
the father of the British navy, celebrated
his ninetieth birthday last month. His
son, commander Colin Keppel, Avho has
been promoted to captain for his brilliant
services Avhile in command of the Nile
gunboats during the recent campaign, is
noAA** by seA**eral years the youngest captain in the navy; he Is not yet, thirty-
seven, and received his promotion over
the heads of oiie hundred and forty-three
other commanders, his seniors in some
cases by many years. Sir Harry Keppel,
in spite of the Aveight of ninety years, is
still in vigorous health, and the other day
not only attended a revieAv lu company
Avith the prince di Wales, with Avhom he
has been for rnauy years on the closest
terms of intimacy, but Avas present the

Brigham Young Roberts of Utah, avIio
Avas elected a member ofthe fifty-sixth
congress in November, 1898, aud about
Avhose eligibility for that place there has
been some discussion, appears to be a
member of congress, and if he has been
as business-like as most other members-
elect, he has been dra .vlng his salary
since March 4th, or for about four months.
A copy of the "unofficial list" of members
of the house published by the clerk of the
fifty-fifth congress, Avho makes up tlie
roll i'or the fifty-sixth congress, has just
been issued, and in that list the name of
Brigham Young Roberts appears along
Avith some three hundred and fifty-tAvo
others, A-acancies existing in five districts.
When congress meets: Roberts will be a
member of it; at all events, he Avill have
received pay for eight months at the rate
of five thousand dollars a year. Roberts
may not care a great deal about the salary—he may not even haA-e taken it—but
the fact that he is on the "unofficial list"
clearly sIioavs that it is not a question of
his admission, but of his expulsion, that
is to confront the next congress.
