PROTECT HOME INDUSTRIES  OUTLINES TRUE POLICY OF  THE  GOVERNMENT.  Operation of Smelters North of the International  Boundary Means  Work and Prosperity,  - Rossland, February 17.���Christopher Foley, the labor leader who  unsuccessfully contested the bye-  election in Yale-Cariboo district as  a straight labor candidate against  the nominees of both the old political parties, and who has since been  appointed by the Laurier government as the representative of labor  on the Chinese-Japanese immigration  commission, was interviewed by a  Tribune ' representative 'yesterday.  - upon the present railway struggle  iu East Kootenay,. and its bearing  . upon tlie mining, and smelting in-*  diistry-1- in   Southern "^British** Co-  lumbia.       _ -     ..   '   ^ ' ,-'. *      \>  ;In-the" course of'the interview'Mr.'  Foley-was -careful ��to_ say that he  could not speak, officially, on- behalf  ~of- organized ^"labor " in   Southern  *     *       -   ** .,    -  , British Columbia, but from* the fact  < thatThe is a' close student' of,.most  public questions, and .that his leadership is recognized by organized,  labor from Ythe Boundary,., to .East  Kootenay,,his^eiews "upon the-pres-  ent complication's in the.coal fields,,  and what he considers to/be the  duty bf the government in the matter, become of interest. ..-        <-  As to the broad question as to  what should be, the' policy of the  government with respect to the development of the mineral resources,  __ Mr. Foley said he agreed with the  views advanced by John Houston in  his interview which appeared in the  Montreal Star. He - maintained  that the charter for the proposed  line of railway from the Fernie coal  fields should be refused by the government,'not because it was desired  by "James J. Hill, nor because it was  being -opposed by the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company, but be-  -cause the interests-of-the-country^  demanded its refusal. He held that  the construction of such a line of  railway would be prejudicial to the  welfare _of the province, because,  being a part of the Hill system of  railways, it would be operated solely  in the .interests of United States  railway systems, and its chief business would be the carriage into the  state of Montana of the coal and  coke which the smelters of British  Columbia required for the reduction  of the ores qf the province; and from  the present scarcity of which the  British Columbia smelters were  forced to curtail their operations.  From - a provincial, as well as  from a labor standpoint; Mr. Foley  said he was convinced that the  true policy of the government lay  in the direction of encouraging in  every manner possible the smelting  industry of the province, and in  any measures taken to promote this  end the government could count  upon his hearty support. As matters  stand it was manifest that the  province did not commence to  receive the full benefits which  should accompany the development  of its mineral resources. Instead of  being reduced somewhere in the  province the great proportion of  the ores of the silver-lead camps  was diverted by small feeders of  United States railways to United  States smelters, and from a purely  labor standpoint the province  suffered. He was aware that the  class of labor generally employed  around smelters was rather difficult  of organization, but much progress  along this line was being made in  some of the States, and the same  results might be expected in British  Columbia as the industry became  established. In any event the operation of smelters north of the inter-  iiational boundary line meant work,  and it followed that the more demand there was for labor in British  Columbia the better it would be  for the laborers of the province.  One of the first essentials to the  profitable operation of smelters is a  cheap supply of fuel. At present  this supply is - drawn., from the  Fernie coal fields, and, as is generally known,''the present capacity of-  the coal ^company'-has not proven  equal to the demand, and it is just  possible that for some time to come  the demand would keep pace with  such increased output as .the coal  company could make. Threatening  as it did the future Jcoal -supply of  th^vBritish" Columbia smelters/ Mr."  ^^^^^^^ie consideration of the  7fi^^^^^^^^s<tov"a railway char-  whe%l3S^@^jgg��f the mining  andj3melting'4ssyp|j��y: of.the province', in' whichJ tnfcf whole people  "were interested, were' not of more  consequence, and worthy of more  consideration at the hands of the  government .than the interests of  the individual shareholders in the  Crow's a Nest Pass Coal Company,  'who, in order to complete a profitable sale, appeared willing to  jeopardise the interests of the people of an entire province.  Whether.or not .there are other  coal measures in East Kootenay  than those owned by the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Company is not of-  immediate consequence. The fact  remains that the only coal measures  ��� opened up are .those of the Fernie  company, which'it. is proposed to  sell, and which,"great as they undoubtedly are, were even yet insufficiently developed after two>years  tiine^to'ineet the^demarids' -,of" the  local smelters. '������If this coal is!to-be  diverted 'from the smelters of 'British Columbia an interval of one,  and possibly ^two^or three years,  must elapse before any othersource.  of supply which may exist' Jcan^W  opened up. If some one'must await  the practical demonstration^of the  coal resources of East Kootenay,-  should the people of the province  be put to the inconvenience and de-'  lay in order''that the', shareholders  of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal ��� Com-"  pany may make inordindte^profits  through thVsale of the 'jcoalj.meas^  measures already'opened to James  <J: Hill and his associates.      \ "'-T  Speaking as a-representative "of  labor Mr. Foley" said that in any  such Issue the Crow's Nest Coal  Company could hardly expects to  receive either consideration or sym  pathy from organized labor. From  past experience it looked veryinuch  as if it was the,settled policy of the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company to  so work its collieries that the great  stores of natural wealth instead of  being.a blessing would almost be a  1 curse to the province. _ Not satisfied  with receiving the great coal areas  for a songjt appeared as if the attempt was being made ��� to crowd  the white laborer of the province  out of even a chance to earn a  -livelihood by���workiug them._YWhat  was evidently being attempted was  the reproduction in East Kootenay  of the unhappy condition of affairs  which prevailed in so many of the  coal regions in the eastern states,  where by the importation of the  bcourings-of Europe-the" scale of  wages was reduced and reduced  until it touched something like 75  cents per day. When, therefore,  the Crow's Nest Coal Company virtually makes a request that the  development of a province be arrested at least for a year or two in  order that its shareholders may  complete a deal advantageous to  themselves, it need occasion no surprise if organized labor neglects to  enthuse over its project.  tiveness that he saw much material  which had unquestionably belonged  to her.. The absence of tprecise in-  formation'brightens the outlook for  the friends of the crew of the Lu-  cerne,"leading them to hope that  she may be adrift somewhere,  though, disabled.

' *  '" Slavery'in South Carolina.  -��� Nbjv York, February 17.���Under  the caption "Slavery in South Caro-  lina/'^the .Tribune* this'}morning  publishes   the following from   its  Columbia, South Carolina,''correspondent: Judge W. C. Bennett has  ordered a special term of the court  of sessions to meet at Anderson on  March'7th to receive" the-report of  the grand'jury charged jto investi-.  gate the "shameful practices" and  "stockade   scandal"   of    Anderson  county.  -In. charging the  grand jury to  make a thorough investigation the  judge said he had heard rumors 'of  the  conditions of slavery in that'  county, but_ the evidence brought  out"during the week in the trial of  'James   Newell,   a* farmer, for-the  murder' of ^Vill "Hull,> -negro, astonished   the   court.   -The-   judge  stated .that Hull had been .killed,  while 'attempting^to escape" from  Newell's stockade and that he was,  not   a   convict, .but_was- held,   a  prisoner-under a labor contract that  gave the landlord every right' ever  claimed bya"r_aster~over slaves.    _  Hull   had .run-away  and:.gone,  home, where'he was arrested at the'  instance of Newell by^ a -"constable^  and; by_ that-constable- taken_to^  Newell's stockade instead of -to the'  jail and turned overf-to*, Newell's-  guards. -.Later, when-.-he^again  attempted to escape* he Y was killed.,  JThe'^judge said?'he-' was -informed  Ttliat not, only, men ��� but/women and.  children were heldMnVthis:bondage."

Pekin, February 17.yA few days  ago count Von Waldersee wrote to  the generals under his supervision,  notifying them to have all their  available troops ready in two weeks  for an expedition ^lasting 80 days.  Today general Chaffee and general  Voyron, the French commander, re-  ceived letters ^asking for their co-  operation  and expressing a desire  Mrs. Nation Still Smashing.  ��� Topeka, Kansas, February 17.���  At 6 o'clock this evening Mrs. Nation, followed by 500 men and  women, raided and demolished one  joint and destroyed a lot of saloon  furniture stored in a cold storage  plant into which they had broken.  During the day Mrs. Nation was  arrested three different times on  charges preferred by the proprietor  of the cold storage plant. She was  released each, time, and at 6:10  o'clock is marching down Kansas  avenue at the head of 500 people,  apparently bent on another raid.  Steamer's Fate in Doubt.  St. Johns, Newfoundland, February 17.���There is now a decided  conflict of opinion with reference to  the identity of the wreckage near  Bacalieu. All who went to the  scene on the government tug Ingra-  ham assert that the wreckage shows  no indications of having belonged  to the steamer Lucerne. On the  other, hand, the agent who went  to the scene insists with equal posi-  to know what forces they can spare.  ���In commencing his letter to general  Chaffee count Von Waldersee says:  "Owing to the unsatisfactory nature of the negotiations for police,  and also to circumstances rendering  such a course desirable, it will probably be necessary to resume military operations on a large "scale,  especially toward the west."  ~- It is not thought likely that general Chafee<will agree to such a  plan without instructions from  Washington. The French commander, however, is expected to do  so." Count von Waldersee's plans  contemplated offering the command  of the expedition .in the first  instance to sir Alfred Gazelee, the  British commander, but it is believed  that in view of his recent illness  general Gazelee will inform count  von Waldersee that he is unable to  accept the command. In that  event it will be offered to general  Voyron, provided the French fall in  with the arrangement, which Von  Waldersee believes" will be the case.  Ere long an announcement is expected that the destination of the  proposed expedition is Sian Fu. The  foreign envoys believe its object is  to compel the Chinese to accept  terms of the powers. It is thought  that when it becomes known that  the expedition has started, the imperial court will hasten to comply  immediately with all the demands  of the joint note. The military are  much elated at the prospect of  active service. Many believe the  Chinese army will strive to the utmost to protect the province of  Shen Si against invasion.

Dewet,-with Plummer's 'Australian  bushnten close behind, him, has  struck'the railway north of DeAar  and lost a portion of his ammunition  aud supplies���His object lin invad-i  ing Cape Colony has probably been  to attempt to concentrate Herzog's,  Kritinger's and his own forces and  instigate a general uprising among  the Dutch by the capture ��� of .some  important stronghold on the lines  of communication. Kitchener is  where, he can mass his.mounted  forces' and the colonial defense  troops and set one column after  'another in motion against Dewet.  Old soldiers here do not believe  the Boers will escape, but Dewet is  a Wily fox. As for the disaffected  districts, they are converted from  disloyalty by the looting of their  .property and the confiscation of  their horses and cattle.. The campaign has been ended prematurely  by the military experts so many  times that they are warned against  expressing an opinion with emphasis, but without doubt -they have  valid reasons for being greatly encouraged by the results of ,the last  fortnight's work. General Hunter,  whose services in South Africa have  been brilliant and successful,'has  returned to England in impaired  health, and has received a warm  welcome from his military friends.  He divides the honors with lord Roberts, having never been beaten and  having compelled a large force of  Boers to surrender. About twelve  hundred troops.-including drafts of  mounted infantry and yeomanry,  embarked at Southampton yesterday for South Africa. The reinforcements from England to the  colonies will number 30,000 by the  end of April.  Aftermath   of Parliament's   Opening.  The king and queen have gone  quietly to Windsor today in plain  carriages without a guard of honor.  This is a sign'that the period of  royal pageants and town shows has  .ended and that London is settling  down   to    normal    conditions   of  prosaic existence.   An interval of  "peace and quiet would be welcomed  by all classes, except possibly the  smart set, who find it difficult to  reconcile themselves to a state of  public   mourning  jWithout   other  sources of pleasurable excitement  'than 'theatres   or   small    dinner  parties with the game of " bridge "  played sub-rosa. .- Military parades  and   the  state   functions  at,:.St.  Stephen's, interfere with., business  and interrupt the course of trade.

It. is better, that .the truth  be found out now than six months  hence.   An     investigation    might  show that men are on  the force  who are utterly: unworthy, and it  might   also   show   that   men   are  dropped from the force simply because they have incurred the displeasure of a West ward  saloonkeeper, who is said to have _an unlimited pull with one or two of the  police commissioners. *  IHE CHIEF IN TH��SAS0tt  -, \.v. .���'������*���'       '��� '*���' *''-7! ���������   ���'*.*' ���*���"       ���:--X  rWJ:      ���'������"-��� ��� :*V *.Y     ,-'"      :''[  in all shades  A grand assortment  of beautiful Silks  in Blouse Lengths-  X.

This indifference is not-  new. In a very great measure it  accounted for the- pro-Chinese'  report of the previous commission  which sat severaL years ago.

[���A.  ?  if  Throughout 'the 'interior bf /Brit-5  ish' Columbia* there is no1 divisioti'bf  opinion as to what action the-house  of commons��should take with respect to the attempt which is being  . made to rob "this province of' the;  ���   advantages -which   should   attend'  the development of, its mineral resources.' , Prominent Liberals, Con-r  sarvatives >and Laborites' unite in'  "' their demands - to parliament'that'  .    the welfare of a province be placed,  above the interests of a fewfavored-  individuals -.of-.-Toronto,   and that,  the application for a charter for a  railway'to"tap the  coal fields of  'East Kootenay   bo   refused.    The  menace  to. the. welfare of_British~  Columbia,   which   is   conveyed' in  the application for" the Hill railway   charter    is   so serious that  British  Columbians,  in  the desire  to combat it have thrown, to -the  winds   tariff   and   trade   theories  which 'they  have   conscientiously  advocated for years; and thus' it  happens that lifelong free  traders  are found openly advocating'export  duties upon coal, and railway conditions which a few years ago they  would have denounced as monopolistic.     There is  neither fawning,  friendship for 'the < Canadian Pacific  Railway Company, nor jingo- hostility tp  its  great - American rival,  in  the opposition  which is being  raised against the attempt of James  aT.  Hill  to  run his railway feeder  from tbe state of Montana into the  East Kootenay- coal fields.     It is  plainly the fight of the united people of a great section for their self-  preservation, and if in the present  instance they are advocating the  cause of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company it is because, in spite  of previous differences   with this  gigantic' corporation,' they realize  that the interests of the Canadian  railway and their own interests are  identical, and because' they1/unanimously repent; the attempt whichis  being   made by. the   Crow's Nest  Pass CoAl'-Company,iand its- allied  American   railway   and industrial  trustsv'-to'secure a   snap, verdict1  agaihst'th-emin' the' Canadian ' parliament.  v  wonder was not that'the members  of the -government had not done  more to'discoui'age Chinese immigration,' but' that' they had done  anything. ���  ONLY FOUR'CASES'REMAIN  - j     *r       '  In the Supreme'.Court-  Out of the' ten cases, that were  set down for trial at the session, of  the supreme court -which has been-  in session since last Tuesday, only  four remain to'be" heard."

His baggage, was'  placed-fdr a moment in the vestibule  of-hislresidence and' ��� shortly ��� af ter-  watds ' it was-' ascertained- that?  thieves-had-entered the house by  falfce keye'and'stolen1 "a -valise con-;  taining -l diplomatic''papers. The  j police are investigating'the matter.-  Mayor Fletcher, aldermen Selous  and Hugh R. Cameron, police commissioners, held a meeting on Sat  urday afternoon, and the result of  their - deliberations are unknown,  as neither1-of the three would talk  for publication. Rumors were  floating around yesterday that the  chief of police' had - convinced the'  board that the>police'.force should  no longer be - under- the -control-of *  the city; that, instead.it should be  under hisabsolute'control so that He  could better carry out- his own peculiar .ideas 'of maintaining peace  and quietness- in Nelson.  In the first place, the force ��� is to  be increased and put in uniform;  then- regalia'; such as- clubs -and  flash-lights and'leg- irons' and armlets, is to be furnished'each'man on  the force.' Th'e'-present" system of  keeping the < city's books' is not at  all satisfactory to the chief, and  the' sums that have for the last  four years been paid 'to -the city ���  and credited to "miscellaneous"are  to be paid'through the police-court,  in order" that the "police court fines'  of Nelson will compare more favor-'  ably with'the police" court 'fines 'of  Rossland." The men on itlie'-force  whom the chief did not like person-  J ally were quietly dropped without-  evenJ reasons being required,-and  others,-'whom the chief does^like,  were dulyjnstalled. -   *"  From/this" time on Nelson is to be  run las Mother towns are run, that is,  its police-are to have "the^ privilege  of wreaking their,private spites and-  dislikes; full'swing   to; levy "hush<  money -on the'inmates of the houses ���  of joy,' and absolute power-to harass  saloons   and' -hotels^-'whose i prb--  prietors are'not personal ^friends1 of-  the   powers r- that  be.' -The ������ news--"  papers ,wiir.thus have-a' chance, .to  giv.e mjnute^pavticular8[;pf.';all ;the  cases that -come up in the police  court, and the-people-who read the  newspapers will then have a chance  to compare'the wickedness of i'their ���  own city-with i-the^wickedness'of  .other cities." AH this is to be done  in order to gratify -the schemings  of a chief .of police and one of Nelson's saloon-keepers:'-  The Pythians. *  Members  -cft-'the'- Knights . of  Pythias and the uniform rank of  the  Nelson lodges held their annual church parade yesterday afternoon and "about' 50 members participated in the ceremonies".

J. 0. Drewry of Rossland, managing director of the Canadian'
Goldfields Syndicate, was in the city
a few hours on Saturday, en loute
to the Sunset mine at Whitewater.
He stated that the property; would
make its first shipment during this
-.-week. The ore will be sent to the
Nelson smelter, and the first consignment will amount to 100 tons.
This ore has been obtained while
development was in progress.    The
"workings have been in ore throughout, and some of it is the richest
tfiat has yet been discovered in';the
Slocan'. Rich strikes have frequerit-T
ly been "reported during the-year,
and the propertyMias .now proven
itself.        > "- "
''Mr.  Drewry- retnrned,-from.-'the
- east-:l«£st week.-where he** had'been
for some time on important mining*:
business.   In speaking of bis trip
- he" said he "worked, to., bring about
the negotiations "'between 'Messrs.*
Gooderham. and Blackstock and - the
O: P.R. Co. for the purchase of, the
Trail smelter. He "said, the deal'
was practically completed, and'in
less than 30 days the Toronto 'company wouldUakeover-the-plant'. ■
_ Mr. Drewry, in speaking of'-the'
present smelter situation, expressed:
himself as in favor-of ^'havingrefln-'
eries established here at once.-; "It
will'have to come^to* this, and'the
sooner the better," said he. -"Arrangements ,are being- made at the
present time toward this end,. ,The
government should give a "bounty
on every ton "produced.^and" by so'
doing place us on the same footing
as the American smelting .and Refining companies.-'- The "bounty
should be,granted for at least three
years."' The Dominion, goverment
has.been petitioned, and no doubt
some action will be* taken at the
present session.. The present number     of     smelters    is      sufficient
j, to treat. only.    40. - per     cent
of the silver-lead ores produced,
but if proper legislation was framed
and the. enterprise encouraged, a
number of new smelters would be
erected, when theh'there would be
no difficulty in securing treatment
for all ores mined." He said 'a
refinery would probably-be built at
Trail. "I "refineries are not "built
here," said-Mr. -Drewry, '-'the silver-
lead industry wiirin a'short time
be paralyzed. The present trouble
is the cause of many-silver-lead
mines 'shutting down, ,as it is impossible to find a market for their
In speaking of the money market
of Eastern Canada Mr. Drewry
stated that it was very close< and
that very little money could be
obtained for British Columbia mining purposes.     .
Last Week's Smelter Operations.
The receipts of ore at the Hall
Mines smelter during the past week
amounted to about 800 tons, exceeding the receipts of the previous
week by "about 300 tons. Notwithstanding this large amount only
half of the properties sent in ore
that usually do so. One reason for
such few shipments coming in is
that two or three of the big shippers have shut down. This is due
to the trouble that has arisen between the smelters and the silver-
lead producing mines which is now
making the outlook for some of the
mines decidedly blue.
The largest quantity received
during, tlie week just'passed was
350 tons, which came from the
Highland mine at Ainsworth. During the first of the. week- 150-tons
were-sent down, and* yesterday 200-
tons moro ^ere'Mceived^ y.
The Arlington; oh''.Springer creek,
waa the next in line, having sent in
about 200 tons. This amount is
just doable*that-of the week-before.
The manager of the mine, W.F.
DuBois,' was<in the city during the
week,:«nd*said they werefcarvying
development on-.with'greater activity, and*,'tnat_±he -shipments '-would
be much*larger in the future:-, ""'^
The Ymiivminoat YmirsentJcon-
centrates,amounting- to ,about'1I8O
tons, . '.     '    *- '      '   y
From $he Kaslo - district 40u tons;,
were sent.in. ■; The ""shipments fronr-
there;have been renewed,' assuring?
the twoVweeks before-110 ores>were
received.-"The-iron ore from'.tlie
Iron King ..group at .SlocariVJunc?
tion, to be used for fluxing purposes, is being sent in much larger
quantities, as this week over 150
tons .were shipped. It is quite probable' that the amount will be. in-
creasedto over 200 tons at an early
date.          >
Slocan Junction Iron Mines.
The mining of iron ore in this district has received little , or no attention until late, but now 'considerable importance is  being attached
to the industry. , It is said that_ a
deal is about closed for "the iron
ore property <• owned by Mike Egan,
situated on - the south side of the
river at;,Slocan   Junction.y With
others,1--William - Hudson)" V -well-
known mining^ 'man of- this city>_is
said to be one - of-* the' purchasers.
It is intended to start work on the"
property at,a&*early date and the
'ore   will' be* shipped.!to,the,Trail
smelter for fluxing, purposes.    The
-property contains* immense mineral
deposits-"and   the" ledges -• are 'so
located .that its /development' will
incur comparatively small expense.
- The Iron'.King, group"-at" Slocan
Junction was thought to be of little
value until aJfew weeks, ago but
now its value is  greatly? increased,
and'over.100-tons per week are
.being_-sent    to'- the* Hall; Mines
smelter.     Within    the .past   two
weeks several -new locations have
been'made and; development will
•probably',be   started   upon'them
.shortly.,. The iron ore from Kamloops, where all .the" ore -was formerly obtained by the  smelters bf
southern British Columbia/ is now
in little demand and doubtless the
shipments   from   there   will" soon
cease entirely.    This marks a new
era in this district, as in all probability    before    mauy    years   this
industry   will' develop   into large
proportions/. Roller mills may be
established and the iron industry
will flourish.   The vicinity of Slocan Junction has  every' facility to
make this undertaking a great one.
Wages Were- Paid.■_
The money to pay off the men
whewere employed at the-Molly
Gibson mine before operations were
suspended has been advanced by
the directors in the east, and on
Saturday each man received - a
check for. the full amount. . Arrangements are being made to resume work at an early date. In
discussing the affairs' of the company one of- its officers informed
Tub Tribune that $75,000 has been
raised in the East to further develop the mine and build a smelter.
No more ore will be shipped, however, under the present conditions,
as the advanced smelter rates has
convinced the company that it will
be more profitable to concentrate
their class of ore.
The Chapleau.
The only tiling new that has developed concerning the shut-down
of the Chapleau mine on Lemon
creek, situated in the centre of the
Kilo group, which is owned by the
Warner-Miller syndicate, is that
the two companies have amalgamated and that work will be resumed with greater activity at an
early date. This is merely a revival of an old rumor and may be
taken for what it is worth.
Russian-Chinese Railway.
St. Petersburg-, February 17.—
It is reported from - Nagasaki that
an agreement has been concluded
between China and the Russo-
Chinese bank-for the construction
of a railway from lake Baikal,
Siberia, to Port Arthur. The bank
in return for constructing the line,
gets the right to work it for thirty
years. The same informant asserts
also that a. line - is projected from
Kiakhta to Pekin.
That   "every    man   or   -woman
should have'a hobby'.' is a gdodVold
saying, but that  "every v'maniror
woman should have a hobby *that
pays" is better.   The .dog is/and/it
is safe to predict always ^svill be,HHe
most popular pet of man; and'there
is; consequently;- -always "-a ready-
market for a good dog of any breed.
A   really   first-class   animal,* of  a
fashionable   breed   will   command
practically ariy< price his owner sets
upon him.   A man in the suburbs
of New York last year cleared over'
$1000 from'the.sale of his puppies,
the produce of, his-two female dogs.
Thisu,was,the result of successful
mating, as neither of his" bulldogs
had ever won on the 'show bench.'
! For several years another man
living near New York-has regularly
made $750 a year from a small but
! fairly select stud - of Irish terriers;
and with a good kennel' of fox terriers a Chicago man'has made over
$10,000   in   the   past "few-   years.'
Dogs, then", maybe said to be pets
that   pay.     Dogs "are judged   by
a firmly' laid   down standard for
each breed, and  a certain -number
of marks are given for each point
the dog "possesses; if his ears are
"right; for instance,* full marks* are
given- for; that ■'point,' and" so   on
through all the points of his breed.
A printed set of the 'p°m*ts of any
breed is easily obtainable, *as also is
a colored-plate of an ideal dog possessing >all.the standard*points, and
a short study of' these will* soon
enable the novice to -know a good
dog -jvhen "hev sees i it, and a few,
visits to a show where good dogs of
'hi? selected-breed are- beingY'exhibited will soon put him in'possession"
of all the" knowledge requisite,, for
making his hobby profitable. . •'
J The best paying dpgs to~keep are
the fox-terrier, collie^.Welsh* terrier,
and  bulldog; ,as'" they -■ are, always
readily sold; bub almost any' breed,
judiciously-managed, will pay.'- '--
/ Hens   will  pay as hobbie3, but
ducks, geese'andi turkeys twill < not.
The same' remarks apply to >hens as
to dogs;.a colored plate showing the
.color and markings of each breed is
to.be obtained <,f coin the office of-
'any'of the-poultry,papers, and" by'
careful, selection good results are
quickly and easily obtained.    The
profit from good-hens is easily un-
derstood'when it is known that for
a dozen  eggs. from a prize hen for
setting purposes. $8 is   the" usual
* The eggs _ from '"smaller' winners
command $2 a dozen; Leghorns,
both white and brown, are the most
easily obtained, as they are perhaps
in .the best state of -culture of any
of oiir.fowls today, but competition
in this breed is -very keen. ' Goo'd
birds of any breed will1; pay, Kow-
'ever, but the Silver Wyandotte* is
perhaps the best to keep, as it is an
all-round. bird, good alike for laying and table purposes;- one woman

Nelson Hockey Team at Home. *; .
The Nelson' hockey teanrreturned
from Rossland" last evening * and
brought with them the $100 silver
;cup trophy, donated by the citizens
ot Rossland, and also brought the
championship of British Columbia.
The "game-which gave them the
championship, was that against
Rossland on Saturday night. They
played Phoenix on Friday night
and won by 4 goals to 27' Rossland
played Revelstoke on Thursday and
the ' former won by 0 goals to 1.
When,'the game- was called on
Saturdays night -'the   "rink   "was1
y crowded with spectators.^ It was
thought' that Rossland was sure of
winning, as ' they' seemed to 'have
the habit of carrying off the cup on
all occasions. Perhaps this was the
reason of tlie defeat. * Nelson had
two superb players in J..Thompson
jind B. Archibald, but there ■ were
equally good men on-the Rossland
The only goal won by Rossland
was done by a hit from the back of
the ice by O'Brien, and this .:was
more than offset by two similar
goals scored by the Nelson point,
B. Archibald. The line-up was as
tion the cup was won by Nelson.
Richardson!s and Tamblyn's rinks
play off here to • see who wins it.
C. Archibald won, the cup for scoring the highest number of points—,
24. There were seven prizes given,
three of them going to Rossland.
All the trophies are on exhibition

A number of C. P. R. officials arrived in Nelson last evening. They
are general superintendent Marpole
of the Pacific division, assistant
general freight agent F. .y. Peters,
formerly of this'city, now of Vancouver; master mechanic F. E.
Hobbs of Revelstoke, and general
storekeeper R. E. Bowman of Vancouver.5 A. F. Armistead, ■'Mr. Mar-
pole's private secretary, ' accompanied the party. They are stopping at the Phair. Mr. Marpole is
on a trip of inspection through the
Kootfcnaysy V>!
In speaking bf the freight traffic
at the Cqastf .Mr. Peters saicT that
the northern "trade was rather quiet
at present but'rthat better trade
was expected in a month or so.' He
said that'the' Oriental trade was
excellent.' Since the company have
bought out the C. P. N. boats the
wholesale merchants of Vancouver
and other points on the Coast are
watching the action of the C. P/R.
with a great deal of interest. The
merchants, wish good accommodation and/a good service and Mr.
Peters declares that that was'what'
they were going to give. Mr. Peters
is here on private business.

The game started against Rossland from the very first. Individual players like Newlands and Harris and McLennan, especially the
latter two, would time and again
bring the puck well down the ice
only to be foiled by the watchful
attention of the points and by the
manner in which the forwards
would get back in front of the attacked goal.' The puck would almost inevitably be carried back by
the Nelson forwards and bring the
goal of the home team into jeopardy.
At the end of the first half Rossland had one goal and Nelson four.
Daring the second half. Nelson had
much''-the best of the game, and
scored four goals, while Rossland
did not score at all. When the
game-closed the score stood eight'
goals'to one, in favor of the Nelson
boys.' The Nelson and Sandon
spectators were so enthusiastic that
they pushed on to the ice at the
close of the game and carried the
Nelson*'boys from the rink on their
shoulders. When the wild shouting
and cheering for Nelson was over,
mayor Lalonde presented the cup
to the Nelson team with appropriate remarks.   	
The Curlers.
The curlers also returned home
and were successful in securing four
of the trophies. Rae's rink won the
Hudson's Bay trophy and1 also the
Oliver cup, which two prizes were
second to the Grand Challenge.
Rae's rink was also in the Grand
Challenge contest and played down
to the last, when they lost by only
two points against the Rossland.
