THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  INCREASING THE CAPACITY  OF' THEIR   PLANT   WITH  MACHINERY.  NEW  Dominion Copper Company Preparing  -'for a Busy Season���Boundary  Mines and Smelters.  - George O. .Bradley, mechanical  engineer -.'and manager pi  Bi-adley Engineering and Machi  'Company of, Spokane, who arrived  in thecity Tuesday evening from  Phoenix, had that day closed a deal-  ���with the Dominion Copper Company  for a large quantity of mining  machinery. The company controls  the well known Stemwinder-and  Brooklyn groups."For the Brooklyn  mino they purchased a double 12x16  geared friction drum hoist, and also  a hoist of the same stee for the  Stemwinder property. -A 350-horse-  power boiler is also included in the  purchase and this will be placed on  the boundary line between the two  claims so that both hoists can ' be  operated from the - same point. In  connection with' the hoists they  have' purchased a skip of the' automatic safety-pattern- which will  bring the ore from the mine and  discharge it directly, in the receiv-  - ing bins' iThe*-~ainprovements * will  . also consist of -other machinery and  the whole undertaking-will'-'probably amount to $75,000.', -/* v  -' Both u of pthese ? properties I have  been'well developed and^a depth of  ' 300 to 400 feet, has been obtained  on each'.  'There is a large quantity  _ of good pay; ore\ in sight, and from  500 to 000 tons" have beeriY placed on  . the dump.Y'iWhen the new machinery, which 'ynll "* be - shipped', to, the  property at once, is installed and  pperating-a^much' 'larger'qiiantity.  of ore will be removed^ "For some  time past' development has been  .carried on actively and,'every thing  is now in���'readiness.to 'make the  properties;large shippers. ' "_ ' /  % The Bradley cqmpany^do a large  business in this -province, and during the past yeai\a lairgequantityof  machinery has been shipped'to different mines of 'this district. - It is  _the company that -placed the concentrator at .the Highland -mine at  Ainsworth, which is probably one  ot the best' mills in'the Kootenays.  Not a hitch has occurred since it  was put into' operation a month or  so ago"; -~ y  '      y _"  y ��� '  In' speaking" of, the condition - ofi  mining   affairs   in   the   Boundary  country Mr. Bradley said that it  'appeared to be the most active district���in���British���Columbia���at-^the-  present 'time.    Oh' all the-properties work  is progressing steadily  'and in. many cases the forces are  being increased.  At Grand Forks the Knob Hill  and Ironsides mines are undergoing  a systematic development under  the management of W. Y. William.  The tunnels and shafts are being  run in such directions that an enormous , quantity. * of ore is' being  blocked out, and when once shipping is started on a large basis the  ore can be, readily removed. Not  only the properties that��� have been  mentioned, but a large number of  others are being put. into good  shape; and in the near future the  'output from that district will be  immense.'  Mr. Bradley further stated that  there was good prospects for better  smelter accommodations. The  Miner Graves syndicate, operating  the Granby smelter at Grand Forks,  is now increasing the capacity of  that institution from 600 to 1200  tons per day. They will be ready  to operate on this large scale before  long. The Standard Pyritic smelter  at Boundary Falls is nearly ready  to blow in. The B. C. Copper Company, which started smelting operations a few days ago, states that  if every thing goes well it will at  an early date increase its plant to  about 2000 tons per day. Mr. Bradley predicts that before long the  smelter capacity of the Boundary  country will reach 5000 tons per  day.  "It is also expected," said Mr.  Bradley, "that the treatment rates  "per top will be reduced to $2. This  will be brought about by the mining companies handling ore in large.  tonnage. The mineral deposit there  ia also a self-fluxing pre which can  be treated at a much7less expense.  Taking ail these facts into consideration it is safe to say that the i  and monkeysf  forest dwarfs  Boundary country will be one of  the leading mining sections of the  province in a year or two;'!

We were obliged to  return'the passport to you in person within three days. So we had  to summon vou tonight.",  "Good"   "Now, just keep quiet, will you?"  said the little official, severely.  "Congratulate yourself that your  passport has been found correct."  I retired, gnashing my teeth. In  the ante-chamber I found my policeman, who raised his cap and asked  for a pourboire. ���  "What!" I yelled in angry amazement. '  "But, little father, I took the  trouble to conduct you here. Are  you not going to give me the price  of a glass?"  I gave it.   ������';*  hoqnffoi^^tti^  *t?adjc|he|  vmeetingi  Yen^::^:*^  !his;resignatiqh7^  .i&Mver^I^iif&nsider^^  ::5that5yesterday^sJelecti*onf shqwedgi   I��  ^W��te|wayjfq^8*6metipd^  fcwillTtliSre^e^h^;fbr|i^^  i.'-,'Jj-'-*.',*i,i';-^tv��*T>'^MV;,^^  |tq^dec^q^hat^iU^^^  ���Jasiui^thb^^iwla^^  |th|^it;wiU|^^^|^C(^a  Jto^shbw^lm.ti:th^iw^'^  iway.fbusiness50utiof.'rRevelstokeltisy#ws*|:ii%  Yih^udedrinf^ipjlirwaicti^^  ; new^ener&Iai^  ���^/3MraxShirley?^^^  iff^Shirle^^-a^  : a';del8peratelba1adS  ;-with;a':burglarlaat:-night.:*S'*iH'i'r:?A^v^tev;s^  -fei,;.Tm^gp^  ���y>;News^Njo^;[��pmaGi^^  qial:totThe;Tribune.]yThe Jk^risongll;  ^hey^Mmited;?has.Ym*ad^  contract *wk^^ jS^hd^d^P^iWcjYvY-;  (Smelfer:Cbmp*^y^tb":shiR30bO^  mor,  ^/'AtaYcbnferenceYtoday- between'  YRi;Marp<^ev general; supiBrintendehtjY  of vthe Pacificdiyisaon ;Y^,^.Gutei;  Iiu*s,'[ engineer   of   the yKobtehay Y  division   of " the Canadian*' Pacific  ; rail way; F.

The Emma mine in Summit camp  has -joined the shipping list, send*-  ing out a hundred tons daily to the  pyritic smelter.  The initial 24 hours' run of the  .local smelter resulted in 300 tons of  ore being treated. The second day's  tonnage was 340 tons.  Strike in the Homestake.  ' Rossland, February 20.���An important find of ore of a pay grade  has been made in the Homestake at  a point 1218 feet from the portal of  the lower tunnel. The ore chute,  which is of pay grade, has been  drifted' on for twenty feet. The  ledge is between solid walls and is  below the area of surface disturbance, and S. W- Hall, the superintendent, is satisfied that the Homer  stake will now make a- mine. The  ledge is from fifteen to twenty feet  wide and the pay chute is at - least  five feet wide and may be wider.  The strike is important for the  reason that it is the best and largest  body of ore that has yet been  located in the south belt. It has  caused considerable ' excitement  here.        ,���������:              ��� ���  The modern plan is for a man to  be a publican and a pharisee in his  practice.        ���"      ..-.-.-..   .   , ^s^s^^s^^^^^^^^S^^^^^^^^^^^  ���wggaBttar^atta^g^e***^^  THE TRIBUNE: HELSOK B. 0.

Hill - from carrying across the international boundary all the benefits attending ithe  mining and smelting'and refining  and manufacture of the ores of  British Columbia. In speaking of  the conditions which confront the  mining!-industry in the light"of  Hill's invasion, as outlined' by Mr.  : Houston in Montreal���that an al-  = Iiance,exists_between_Ythe_HilLrai]L  way trust and the United  States  smelter and lead trust;   that the  Hill   railway   feeders    favor    the  United States   smelters;  that the  lead trust has increased its charges  for refining the product of the Canadian smelters; that it has refused  to make further purchases bf Cana-  dian^ead ores; and that the. granting   of  the   Hill   railway charter  would vest the control of the only  fuel supply available for Canadian  smelting purposes in the  hands of  the same   trust���the   Globe   says:  " These are phases of the protracted  " struggle that must continue till  " mining, smelting and  refining be  " merged more closely in the matter  " matter of business management.  '" As the farmer in primitive times  " disputed with the miller, and the  " wool .grower, with the  weaver,  " over the division of the Hour and  " cloth, the miner, smelter and re-  " finer are now   contesting   on a  " gigantic scale over the respective  " profits that should fall to each."  .There is not one hint in  this  that  that the true policy of the federal  government should be along the line  offosteringthisinfantindustry,even  to   the   extent of   protecting the  local fuel supply which is necessary  to    its   existence,   and   which  -is  threatened" by   its   all   powerful  American competitors.    How can  the Globe expect the mining and  smelting and refining industry of  British' Columbia; ever ,to emerge  from   its   primitive   state   if the  government becomes committed to  the policy of chartering railways  ffhich enable rival American smel  ters to corner the only fuel supply  available to Canadian smelters;  thus forcing them out of the lead  smelting business, and thereby  compelling the owners of Canadian  lead; mines to sell in a market iu  which the United States lead trust  fixes the price? In a word, the  position taken by the Globe is that  tho immediate interests of the  shareholders of the Crow's Nest  Coal Company shall be the government's first concern, and their demands met without considering the  effect such action may have upon  the future of the mining sections  of this province, or upon the fortunes of those engaged in raining,  in smelting or in commercial pursuits in Southern British Columbia.  If   Canada,, has nothing to fear  from the threatened domination of  its railways by the great railway,  trust, how   comes   it that in the  Canadian parliament its public men  are now discussing measures of defence?   Why   does   the, Canadian  press, of all shades of politics, give  prominence to their- views, and to  the views of Canadian railway men  upon the situation?   A year ago  there was no public man in the Dominion who considered himself sufficiently secure in the confidence of  the electorate to openly advocate  the purchase of its  railways.    But  last week a motion to adjourn the  house of commons   was   made   in  order to afford an opportunity 'for  discussing the menace of the  railway   trust' to   the   well being of  Canada, when, the suggestion .was  made that the only safe .policy -for  the Dominion to pursue lay in the direction of securingcontrol of theCan-  adian Pacific railwayat an expenditure ,bf $50,000,000.   This does .not  bear outthe.contention that -there  is no uneasiness in the publie^mind  with' respect" to" the   freedom' of  Canada's" railways, and the discussion will serve a* good purpose-if .it  impressesthe fact upon the members of-parliament that-the Domin-.  ion should have some "voice in the,  management of railways rit has so  heavily subsidized. '  - If public opinion .in-the.East^re-  sents the action of .the Grand^Trunk  and'Canadian Pacific .'railway in. diverting, trade >- f rbm - the' Canadian  ports jof Montreal'and' St. John to  "rival American, ports, it is only natural .that���*public "opinion, in the  West should resent the attempts of  an alien railway trust to divert'the  business to United' States smelting  points which by right belongs to  British Columbia-smelting points.

Those applicants of Rossland and  Nelson. for, the South Africa constabulary who are accepted will  leave 'Nelson for the- east a week  from tomorrow. The time for receiving applications' was closed  yesterday morning, and although  a record of the names of those who  sent in applications from this city  was not kept, it is estimated that  about 85 Nelson men have offered  themselves for active service. The  official physician, Dr. Kennedy of  Fort MeLeod, is expected to arrive  in the city this evening, and tomorrow, in company .with lieutenant  Beer, will leave for Rossland to recruit the men of that district. On  Thursday, February 28th, the company from Rossland and' Nelson  will be put through their pacings  here. The examination in riding  will be held at the reereationr  grounds.- Arrangements , are now  under way to give the Nelson men  a send-off. Fire chief Thompson is  oue of the applicants, and has received information from Ottawa  that his application has been accepted.        A Stormy Passage.  Queenstown, February 20.���The  Wilson line steamer Marengo, which  sailed from New York on January  22 for Newcastle, arrived here today.  28 days out.   She reports having:  had a-wild paassge.   The steamer  ran out of coal and made for this  port under canvas.   Those on board  the Marengo complain of   having  had a fearful experience. j  SUPERINTENDENT   P0WN1E.Y  William Downio of Vancouver,  who lias recently< been appointed  superintendent of the'Kootenay-  Boundary systems of the C. P. R.,  is a man who will be an undoubted  acquisition to Nelson. He is in the  prime of life', a confirmed bachelor,  practical, widely experienced in  railway matters, endowed with  good judgment, and known ns a  just mau and a sterling friend. He  is extremely thorough, and whatever he undei takes is invariably  carried to a successful conclusion.  Like all railway men who  have  risen to prominence he entered the  service as a boy.     It is  related  of  him that when a lad in the office of  general freight agent Webster,  of  the pioneer railway of Canada, the  old Northern, he came to the office  at Toronto one morning as usual.  Air. Webster was in the room and  looking up at the boy Willie said:  "It is just half past eight, I can set  my clock by you."     Immediately  the. clock   struck-the half   hour.  This characteristic, coupled   with  unflinching integrity, has been the  keynote of   his  success.   Step by  step he has advanced to important  positions, and the end is not yet.  lie became 4n due time-chief dispatcher of the Northern railway,  and afterwards was appointed to  the same office on the Northern and  Northwestern    system    at   Allan-  dale, now part of Barrie,' Ontario.  At   the Barrie station the agent  then was R. M.  Marpole, and -his  assistant   at the time was   J.  D.  ..Townley, a young man of promise.  Mr.   Marpole   drifted - into   the  world.of railway construction, and  it was  generally   considered  that  his abilities would lead him into a  wider field.  -There *'in building the  Sudbury line he met; Harry- Abbott  and-was joined later by. J. D. Town-  ley.   Mr., Abbott, soon -afterwards  .became the general manager of.the  Pacific .division .of' the' Canadian-  Pacific railwayn'at Vancouver.--He  took,his right hands,man, Mr.  Marpole, as superintendent.'- Mr. Town-  ley .received*,, the *-appointment as  accountant, .and., has ...since.prison  -higher (in . the ,,company's - service. ���  Mr.   Marpole, . fyho^ has ~ a ��7 wide -  knowledge of men, Jost no time.-ih-  drafting his early and able friend,  Mr. Downie, from i the .JNorthern  &  Northwestern railway.to, the ,C. P.  R.i-as  assistant superintendent of  the .Cascade and .Thompson sections.,  f.This,was at the time, when-the terminus, was yet only as. fai  as Port  Moody. .,',Upon,Mr.-;Marpole's elevation > to-his t, present , office* ,Mr.  Downie became superintendent and  now the latter, has ..been advanced  to   the   superintendeiicy    of    the  Kootenay aud Boundary sections.,  In,this important- section, -with  the rapidly extending; railway interests, - the 'impending   additional  construction, passenger traffic^ and  freight   growing* , by -leaps    and  bounds, it is a good feature to have  such an astute and experienced railway man.as Mr. Downie. . He" has a  wonderful power of obtaining ,the  full limit of work from - his subordinates, while at the ��� same time he  is kind and considerate.   Trainmen  have always held him. in affectionate regard. ..In their,difficulties he  is^thVfir^personrtheyTgo-to^and-  never   without    avail.    Countless  also have 'been his unostentatious  acts of charity. . In his  home life  he has been a remarkable son and  brother..    He   is. an   enthusiastic  Mason.   In.the early days of Vancouver he organized Cascade Lodge.  It soon became, and still is the banner longe of British Columbia.   It  is also told of him that his success  bringing him into high favor in the  grand lodge, some friends wanted  him to forthwith become a candidate for the grand mastership.  Hia  reply was characteristic.     "There  are others here older in Masonry  in this province than I, and  who  deserve recognition.   I cannot become a candidate now. If you want  me as an officer I am willing to  serve, but must start at the bottom  and take my turn."

Although ^empresa.j Frederick cis  gravely ill many Germans* are1, con-  vincedvthat,9he is in*'no immediate.-  dauger-'Cof^death.   The  reason' is  cthati'the ghpst^which foretells xthe  "death of every prominent member  of.the Hohenzollern family has not  shown herself.   This ghost is the  "White Lady."    For four' hundred  "yeais she has frequently appeared  in some one of the-royal palaces" for  ���.the purpose of announcing-the forth-  -corning death of some Hohenzollern.  "���For two hundred years she appeared  only in Bohemia, .that being the  ;home of the Hohenzollerns.- In 1859  she visited .for. the first time the  _royal "palace,  in-Berlin.,,'  Alfred  Frederick was 'then   ruler'and'a'  month after the ghost appeared he  became, insane  and was deposed.-  'John Sigismund, his brother-in-law,  Succeeded him and prospered until*  ���1619,   when    one    afternoon    the  1" White Lady ,was seen rocking -the  cradle of the infant Albert.,   The  nurse fainted and in t wo weeks Sigi9-_  niund died.   In ,1667 the apparition  , appeared six weeks before the death  of George Wilhelm, and in 1688 she  'was seen on the roof of the palace  .on the night before  the ��� death of  '.the Great Elector Frederick Wil-  jhelm.  "'T'Many'years passed before~she^was:  seen again. Suddenly, in 1840, she  " showedv herself in Berlin a week before t Frederick William.' III.' died.  Ten days later a court reporter saw  her gliding through the.bedroom of  ,thei prince of Prussia, and the prince,  died a few days later. In 1879 she  appeared a fortnight before t the  death of prince Waldeinar, ,and  there is a story that she; was seen  in the palace' at BeilinC shortly  before - the r death, of ���- the , late  emperor % I. and the _ emperor Frederick. . 'iThe White  Lady" has a stately figure and is  always clothed in pure white.' It is  told that there are really two White  Ladies,, of whom - the* first' wa9  countess; Agnes of Orlamunde, a  very beautiful but immoral woman,  who flourished during the fourteenth century, A amrgrave of  Brandenburg, who was a Hohenzollern, .was. the father of. her three  sons. Her life was reasonably  happy as long as the margrave's  lawful wife lived. When that lady  died the countess insisted that the  margrave marry her,"- but he declined. Thereupon the gentle Agnes  poisoned her three boys and showed  their bodies to the margrave. Tlie  countess Agnes was buried alive in  a vault beneath the palace. Just  as they were about to wall up the  vault she swore that she would be  present at the death of every Hohenzollern forever after.  According to other, authorities,  the only genuine: "White ~ Lady" is  the ghost of Bertha von Rosenberg,  Avho died some centuries ago,; aud  who left a large sum of monejy the  income of which was to be distributed each year among the poor; An  impecunious Hohenzollern, it is  saidj -;i appropriated- theY j entire  aiiiouht to his :own purposes, and as  a consequence; there; has- been for  hundreds of years much unnecessary  cornea  grave  clothes' to look -for the stolen  money.. She always has a.bunch  of safe'. keys dangling.at her belt.  She was lastrseen. in 1870Jby a.sen-  tin^l/.who was-so scared .that'he  dropped/his musket and fled to the  guardroom. 'Ho .was arrested for  deserting his -post. _ The* emperor  does not-believe in "ghosts,<*yet he  knows" well'that the, tales told  about the "White Lady"-are not to  be lightly-dismissed as mere fiction.  Evehvif she should appear' a'few  dajrs before the death of-.the empress Frederick, it is not likely.that  "the world would be informed of ihe  event. It is safe to say that orders  have already" been issued to the  court attendants not to breathe a  word if any of them should see her.  Strikes Easily Settled.  It is not often that a labor strike  occurs in China, but when it does  the   employer   has a   most   expeditious way of settling matters.'   A  strike which occurred in Canton recently was settled by the employer  in   two- hours.     It occurred-< in -a  "sumpau" or native boat-building  ..establishment, where" about eighty  nien"were employed. ,They-receiyed  the liberal remuneration" of; 20 cents  per day, working/from daylight iri  the morning until sunset."??Even on  tliis scanty pittance* some1- of :them  actually saved money and started  establishments of- their own. ^At  the time the strike took place rice,  their staple article of "chow," be-"  came yery'dear; consequently -the  boat builders asked for a raise bf 5  cents a day.     The employer objected and at once' laid < the case before'the mandarin. < The employees  in the meantime refused to work.  After hearing what the employer  had to say the mandarin ' at once  gave him authority - to"* shoot   all  thosewhq refused to worK  Armed  with this ] authority tlie' employer  went back to his!, "yard',' and comT  menced blazing away with. his old  blunderbuss, but by the time five  of his men were stretched out the  rest were< at work and peace and  quietness prevailed.   'Of course the  mandarin had his palm well'oiled  for his advice.  D. R. Wllkle, General Managers,  B. Hay. Inspector.  Nelson Branch���Burns Blook, 231 Baker Street  J. M.

"I saw the queen of England box  the.ears of the prince of Wales  just as an ordinary mother would  box the ears of her mischievous  child," said Mrs. Margaret Louisa  iTruman-of���No.--162--Fair-streetr  Trenton, when she heard of the  queen's death. She< is an*-, old  womani but her memory is vigorous  and she likes to talk of qiieen Victoria, for whom, -as a -former..subject, she has^a profound veneration.  "The first time I saw the % queen,"  she said, "was"'in '1859, ;on the  occasion of the-launching.-of the  steamship Great ^Eastern < at Holyhead. When the queen walked  down the wharf to board the vessel  she led the prince of Wales by the  hand. He was a mere . child then  and mischievous as all children that  amount to anything are at that  age. When the prince passed, the  soldiers, who were drawn up in line  as a guard to the queen, he slyly  stuck a pin into the leg of one of  them. The pain made the man  fairly yell. The queen turned  around, and, understanding that  the prince was . the cause of the  trouble, she stooped and soundly  boxed his ears. The prince cried  and begged his mother's forgiveness  through his tears."  ,    Midnight Hunts for Vagabonds.  Nightly thief and vagabond  hunting expeditions have become a  regular thing, with the Parisian  police. Vagabonds, pick-pockets,  thieves, highway robbers and  bandits from all quarters of the  globe have been pouring in on the  gay metropolis for over a year,  being attracted, in immense swarms,  by ithe Paris-exposition. 1 "; There; is \  still much work"tcTbe done before:  Paris will be thoroughly..: cleansed,"  reports the Parisian Prefect-: of;  Police Lepine; "but we hope soon_to  make Paris a safe .town* for citizens  ���at night. Sincei ^ttoy hunting expeditions havebeguriY 420i --arrests a  day have been made, and theeourt.s  in eight days, havo been imposing  as many as 20Q   heavy  sentences.  During the last twelve months the  number of arrests , has reached  140,000. Arrests for small offences  are not included in these. - ������."  "The hunting expeditions^, for  criminals begin generally! at'midnight. The policemen or gendarmes  depart from the police stations in  platoons, and then, stealing noiselessly, single file, seek the shadows  of walls and::, houses until the  suspected sneak thieves and vagrants are sighted. A ring is formed  and the suspects.are corralled. ��� At  2 a.m. police'in plain clothes are  sent out from all the stations to  finish up the work.  "At 8 o'clock the .next morning  the police prefecture is filled with  prisoners of- both sexes, and * the  court mill is ready to grind. All  those having weapons, stolen-goods  and burglars' kits and other tools  in their possession are sentenced, to  imprisonment. There are many  among those arrested, however,  who run into the arms of the police,  to get free lodging for, the .night."  ������._���_���_���__^__-���---���.        o  Marriage and Divorce Laws. -,   .  Toronto, February 20.���In view  of the Delpit marriage case...now  engaging the - attention - of the  superior court in Montreal, Prof.  Gold win Smith "in..the Sun today  denounces the marriage and divorce  laws of Canada and demands that  the civil power shall-require of all  pei'sons marrying-in Canada a civil  marriage,"which shall be' regarded  as binding in all civil courts, no  raatcer what action -the church  courts may take. Divorce, in Ythe  same way, he argues, ought to be  hi .the jurisdiction of the state so  far as its le^al-validity and- conse;  quences," including liberty' of legal  remarriage^-are concerned., He says"  divorce by. the senate is preposterous and belongs to bygone days.

CITY LOCAL NEWS  Tbe Rossland and Nelson hockey  teams will play at the rink on  Saturday evening.  The following new books were  received at the public library yesterday: "Alice of Old Vincennes," by  Maurice Thompson; "One of Ourselves," by L. B. Wallford.  Sammy Neelands, the well known  shoe merchant of this city, said yesterday that the Boers had ordered  from him. 5000 pairs of dry sock  boots to keep de wet from de feat.  ' The work of opening up Railroad  and Vernon streets was completed  yesterday. The streets are now in  good condition. Very little other  city work is being done owing to  the severe weather.  , Owing to the lack of a quorum  the annual meeting of the subscribers of the public library to have  been held at St. Savior's church  last evening was postponed until  next Wednesday evening.  A public mass meeting of the  Lord's Day Alliance will be held at  the Baptist church on Stanley street  this evening. A good program has  been prepared. Among the speakers  will be R. S. Kee and R. J. Curie of  the organized labor party and Rev.  J, B. Morgan and Rev. Dr. Wright.  Two miners, Charles Dowell and  James' Gillis, were arrested yesterday morning on the charge" of having stolen a number of blankets  from Rennell's stables on Hall street  and afterward having sold them to  Silver King Mike. They will be  arraigned before the police magistrate this morning. 7  ��� The at home given by the bachelors of the .Young People's Society'  of the Methodist church was largely,,  attended and proved a decided success. . Besides an interesting musical and literary program a guessing  contest was :conducted. The prize  for this was awarded to6Mrs. Rutherford.

It was  decided to adjourn the annual general meeting ot\the shareholders of  the company, until two months  later. The, question of constructing a park at the eastern terminus  of the line was discussed.  The transportation accommodation of Nelson is decidedly poor  these days. The evening passenger  train from -Robson is ' detained a  couple hours or more every night  owing to the lateness of the boat  from Arrowhead, which is delayed  by ice. The.steamer from Kootenay Landing for the past two nights  -has-b'eennea'rly-teu-hours late, due-  to the passenger train on the  Crow's Nest Pass being delayed by  mud and snowslides.  According to the . new public  school curriculum a course of nature  study has to be taught to the entrance class. The course includes  the'study of plants and animal life  and the formation of rocks. During the winter season the study of  the various kinds of rock will be'  conducted, and foi* this certain  chemicals and apparatus have to be  used. These supplies were given  to the school without charge by W.  F. Teetzel.' The instruction of this  department will. be conducted by  principal Soady.  SUPREME COURT BUSINESS  .'.-#���;-.

Wigen'is to receive damages to the  amount of $350: The cost of this  action and the cost of suing for an  injunction is assessed to the defendants. Mr. justice Irving in giving  his judgment stated that the railroad company had acted iu a very  high-handed manner with the plaintiff. During- the morning session  the examination "of J. H. Gray was  continued, after which A. R. Hey-  land gave evidence. H. E. Croasdaile and H..C. Graham were examined on behalf of. defendant, and  their evidence merely corrobprated  that which had been given by former witnesses." M. S. Davys, J. H.  Gray and'^C; Campbell, who were  examined on" Tuesday, were again  put into the witness box to ascertain 'further details. Court adjourned at,4:30, to meet at 11 this  morning.  There are yet two cases to be disposed- of. They are Marino vs.  Alexander, Sproat and Mclnnis and  Harris vs. Pitt. It is quite probable that court1 will be closed by tomorrow evening. The fernie case  will come up' this morning. The  action arises out of a complicated  mining transaction concerning the  Marion mine situated near New  Denver. -There are a large number  of witnesses in the case.  x^ZEms &>  ���DTHlLSOlSr  KASLO  S-A-ITIDOIT  STOVES!

In an interview .with a reporter  on his wife's eastern, trip David  Nation said: " I think my wife has  made a fool of herself tin, going on  this eastern trip. "The "people only  come to see her,because she is filling  newspapers. She should lemain in  Kansas smashing joints. When I  gave her $200 to get her out of jail  here she promised.- to .stay in  Wichita and smash every saloon in  town. That is what I wanted her  to do, and she gave me the- slip  right away and went to Topeka.  "I am in favor of her smashing  saloons in Kansas, but if she goes  to Chicago and commences to smash  her to get into  trouble. She has got- the law on  her side here, but not in the states  where saloons are licensed.  "I think that in this 'eastern* trip  she is .showing the.people that she  has lost her nerve instead of explaining what she has done in Kansas. If she comes, back here and  quits joint smashing, after I have  spent all this money on her, she will  hear from me." '  Father Nation is 70 years old, but  he has lost none of his youthful  days of managing his wife.
