 ���rBnim ���rn-"-t^-  Mineral Production of British Columbia injgjn  $16,407,645  Mineral Production of Kootenay Iq 1900  $10,562,032  ������^as*  NINTH YEAR.  NELSON", B.C., WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 22,  1901  PRICE FIYE CENTS  KICKING OVER QUARANTINE  NO    SPECIAL    TBEATMENT    FOR  SUSPECTED   CASES.  City   Council   Adopts   Most   Recommendations  Contained in  Reports  0   From Public Works Committee.  The friction between the city  health officer and Dr. Hall cropped  out again at tlie city council -meeting'* last evening when Jesse  Graham had a letter before the  council asking why his house had  been quarantined. In his communication Mr. Graham, said Dr.  Hall informed him that he had not  reported the illness of his child as  a case of scarlet fever, but tlie  quarantine had been established,  '��� and the health officer refused to  lift it until a certificate was produced from Dr. Hall that the child,  was not afflicted with scarlet fever.  Mayor Fletcher in explanation  said he had referred the matter to"  the health officer, who iiad furnished  him with Dr. Hall's report on the.  Graham case on May '13th.' This  report stated that the child showed  symptoms of scarlatina and recommended that the health officer call  and satisfy himself as to the case.  Upon the receipt of this notice the  health officer had the Graham'  house quarantined and Mr. Graham  was after wards told that if Dr. Hall  .'���would give a certificate that tlie  case was not .scarlet fever the quarantine would be lifted.  Alderman Gillett asked why the  health officer did not go and see  whether Lhe child had scarlet fever.  Mayor Fletcher in reply said the  health officer was not supposed to  do so. He said it was apparent  that some of the doctors wanted to  shift the responsibility for quarantining premises upon the hen Ith  officer. He thought it would look  better for these doctors to come out  fair and square and say whether  their patients had scarlet fever or  not. He thought ib waa absurd to  expecb the health officer to look  after the patients of all the other  doctors in tlie city for $40 per  month. There were dozens of such  notices as that in the Graham case  sent in to the city health officer.  Alderman Irving expressed the  opinion that it was a hardship to  quarantine a man's premises when  there was reason for it.  Alderman Selous said it appeared  to him as if the council -was being  dragged into a quarrel over the  difference between scarlatina and  scarlet fever.  Mayor Fletcher added that there  . was no difi'erence between the two,  aud that when the doctors reported  ^syinptoms-the-preniises=were=quar-  antined, and the quarantine raised  when the doctors reported that  scarlet fever did not exist.  Alderman Hamilton observed  that if there was no scarlet fever in  Mr. Graham's house Dr. Hall should  give a certificate to that effect, and  if there was scarlet fever the quarantine was all right.       '  Alderman Selous said Mr. Graham  was entitled to some reply to his  letter. He recommended that the  council inform him tliat his house  was quarantined upon the strength  of Dr. Hall's report that there were  symptoms of scarlatina. This was  agreed to and the matter dropped.  The finance committee reported  recommending tho payment of the  current accounts amounting to  $1059.18.  The public works committee reported recommending: 1. That the  alleyway in block 33, addition A,  be made passable for teams. 2.  Tliat the alleyway in .the rear of  tlie Phair hotel be made passable  for teams. 3. That the north side  of Hoover street, between Stanley  and Ward streets, be graded. 4.  That a crossing be laid across Josephine street on the south side of  Latimer street. 5, That a four-  foot sidewalk be laid on the east  side of Falls street from Baker to  Victoria. 0. That a 15-foot sidewalk be built on tlie north side of  Baker street from Josephine to  Stanley stieet, and the walk in  front of Byers ��&' Oo. on Josephine  street be lowered to grade.  The report was considered clause  by clause and adopted, with the  exception of the second clause,  which was referred to the city  engineer for report.  The   council  then took up   the  renort of the public works committee of April 12th.  The first recommendation called  for a 0-foot sidewalk on the east  side of Josephine street, and was  adopted.  The recommendation for a sewer  from Mines road to Kootenay street  was referred to the mayor. Thi8  extension, it was stated, would  serve biit .two houses, aiid the  mayor said the work would cost  about $500.  The recommendation for the  grading of Mines road, f roni Hoover  street to Observatory, was adopted.  The recommendation for the extension of the water main on  Wharf street to the city limits was  adopted.  The proposal to expend $300 in  grading Cedar street from Silica to  Baker street was rejected. Instead  the council will fix up the east end  of Victoria street. ���   0 *..  The council decided to have Del-  bruck street from Stanley to Ward  opened up.  Thorpe & Company's application;  for a reduction of the company's  water rates was.received and the  application refused.  Alderman . Hamilton's cemetery  bylaw was laid over for one month.  Mayor Fletcher was authorized  to discharge the present pound-  keeper and secure one who .would  attend to the duties of the position.  The application of Shackleton &  Simpson asking for special rates for  water for power purposes -was referred to the mayor with power to  act. The applicants would require  a three-inch service pipe.  Tenders were opened for the supplying of the city with electrie  light wire and two telephones. The  tender of the Kootenay Electric  Supply "and Construction Company  for the 'wire required was $357.70,  aud for two telephones $28;'that of  Ewart Bros. & Ringrose was $309.01  for the wire and;$27 for the telephones. The first tender, being the  lower by $11.00, was accepted on  motion of alderman Madden, seconded by alderman Selous.  The council decided to take steps  to secure additional vault accommodation at the city offices, and  also to have the offices kalsomined.  Alderman Hamilton gave notice  that he will move the introduction  of the frontage tax by-law at the  next meeting of the council.  The complaint of the B.C. Riblet Company as to the unsanitary  condition of the immediate neighborhood of the company's premises  was referred to the city engineer.

Discussed Ways and Means,  The committee appointed to  finance the Dominion Day Celebration met at the Madden house last  night, ai.d discussed ways and  means. Messrs.

Tickets will be  on sale on the 23rd and 24th and  will be good until the 27th. Ymir,  among other points, will celebrate  on that day.  "Tom" Brown, who served as a  corporal in the second South African contingent, and who has extensive mineral holdings throughout Kootenay, was surprised to  learn yesterday that neither his  name, nor any of those who volunteered for service in the second contingent, appear in the list of those  entitled to participate in the exemptions under the mineral act or  to take up free lands.  During the last session of the  legislature an act was passed which  relieved all volunteers for service  iu South Africa from the necessity  of taking out free miners' certificates, and also from' the necessity  of performing tho customary assessment work upon mineral claims  until the 31st day of August, 1902,  and another act was passed which  entitled such volunteers to take up,  free of any. charge, 100 acres of,  ���crown lands anywhere iu the province, such lauds to be exempt from  all taxation for a period of five  years.  With respect to the volunteers'  exemption under the mineral act,  the application of tlie exemption  clauses was restricted to such volunteers whose names were recorded  in the offices of the mining recorders  throughout the province by the  minister of mines ��� within two  months from the coming into force  of the amending act. It1 now appears that in transmitting the  names of the British Columbia volunteers the Ottawa authorities entirely overlooked the "British Columbians who served with the second contingent. This oversight  was probably due to the fact that  there were no recruiting stations  in British Columbia for this force,  and had it not been for the discovery made by corporal Brown, it is  just probable that the time limit  set by the act would have passed  before many of the volunteers in  the second contingent were acquainted with the fact that their  names did not appear in the government's list of British Columbia  volunteers.     ���-.'������'  Iu his notice accompanying . the  list of volunteers entitled to the  benefits of the^said acts, the minister of mines requests notice of  any omissions, so that notice is  probably all that is necessary to  bring all within  the scope  of the  Paris  burns the   wood  acres of forest a week.  of   1000  IretTasTtllere yet remains plenty of  time within the two months set  from the coming into force of the  act.  Corporal Brown has prepared a  list of the British Columbians who  served with the second contingent  which he will probably submit to  the minister of mines in order that  all whom he knows may be brought  within the scope of the acts in  question. This list so far as he has  been able to make it up is as  follows : Corporal Brown, Nelson;  troopers Forbes,* Lardo ; Haulgate,  Natal; H. Winfield, Nelson; North-  way, killed %vith Gat. Howard;  Robertson, Fort Steele; Frank  Lead), Fort Steele; T. P. Hughes,  Rossland; corporal Eaton, Baden-  Powell police; corporal' ^Squires,  Rossland; trooper Sims, Nelson;  troopers Holbrook and Hains,  Greenwood; and troopers Slack and  Uuiacke of Wales and Vancouver,  respectively.  As nearly all of the men volunteering from Kootenay were more  or less interested in mining, it is  important that their hJimes should  be submitted to the minister of  mines without delay in order that  they may avoid the ordinary  penalties of forfeiture under the  mineral act for failure to take out  free miners' certificates or perform  the usual assessment work.  J  Faith Curist Found Guilty.  New York, May 21.���J. Luther  Pierson was placed on trial iu  White Plains today on the charge  of failing to secure medical attendance for his 10-months-old child,  who died from catarrhal pneumonia in January last. Pierson was  indicted for wilfully, maliciously  and unlawfully omitting to perform  the duty imposed on him by the  law of furnishing medical attendance to the child. The jury found  him guilty. Coroner J. A. Sulmefer  and Dr. Charles B. Birch testified  that the child died for want of  medical attendance. They saitl  that in their opinion *if she had received proper attention she might  have been saved. Pierson was the  only witness for the defence. He  said that he belonged to the Christian Catholic church; of Chicago,  and that the sect of which he whs  a member did not believe in medicine. It recognized the existence  of disease, but believed that cures  could be effected by faith alone.  Dissatisfied Stockholders.  Greenwood, May 21.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���At a second  meeting of the dissatisfied local  stockholders of the Morrison Minies,  Limited, representing 216,000  shares, it was decided to issue a  circular letter ;urging co-operation of out of town stockholders to  obtain an extraordinary general  meeting to be held at Greenwood.  Pending the meeting the local  shareholders have obtained a supreme court injunction, restraining  the directors from collecting recent  assessments, amounting to two  cents a share.  IN BRITAIN'S PARLIAMENT  BOLD HOLDUP NEAR MIDWAY  THE  LONG AND SHORT MAN AT  THEIR OLD TRICKS.  Proprietor of the. Riverside Hotel and  Two Others Relieved.of Over  Five Hundred Dollars.  Midway, May 21���[Special to the  Tribune]. ��� Information reached  here today of one of the boldest  holdups ever made iu the district.  The Riverside hotel,, que mile from  Rock creek, was the scene of operations about, nine ..o'clock in the  evening. A. S. Larsen, M. W. Bres-  ser, his hired man, and H. A. Green,  a blacksmith, were in a small parlor when two masked men with six-  shooters entered and ��� commanded  Larsen and his companions to hold  up their hands. At first it was  thought that a joke was being perpetrated and the matter was  treated accordingly, but the robbers  informed their victims that they  were in earnest, and that if their  request was not immediately complied with they would have to use  violence in carrying out their intentions. All hands were, held up, and  one of the men went through the  pockets while the other guarded  the door. The robbers were evict eutl y acq uain ted with'_the���fack  that both Larsen and Bresser had  considerable money on them, and  'knew exactly where it was kept, as  the man that did the searching  immediately placed his hand on  Larsen's poeketbook, which contained $450 in bills besides a number of checks.  The hired man had his money in  two pocketbooks, which were kept  in separate pockets, and the men  were also aware of this fact, as the  one doing the searching put his  hand only in tho pockets containing the pocketbooks, wliich together held $95 cash. The two men  then told Larsen that ns checks  were of no use to them, they would  be left at the roadside about three  hundred yards from the hotel,  where he would find them the following morning, and they were as  good as their word, for the pocket-  book containing the checks was  found next morning exactly, where  they agreed to leave it. No description of the robbers can be  given, beyond that one of thera  was a tall man, while the other was  much below the average height.  The provincial police' are working  ,on the ease.  Banks Will Be Closed on  Saturday.  The banks, in accordance with  the proclamation of the lieutenant-  governor, will not be open for business ou Friday and Saturday, May  21th and 25bh.  Will Adopt Modern Methods.  St. Petershurg, May 21.���Celebrating the centenary of the imperial council yesterday, the czar in  an autograph letter promised to reorganize the council on modern  lines so as to facilitate the transaction of business.  CHINESE    INDEMNITY    PROPOSITION EXPLAINED.  London, May 21.���The government was questioned in the house  of commons today on the subject  of the British tug Ewo incident at  Tien Tsin, when two Chinese on  board that vessel were shot by Germans guarding a bridge when the  tug had fouled it. The under foreign secretary, lord Cranborne, Jin  reply said field marshal Von Waldersee had expressed his regret and  had promised to take measures to  prevent the recurrence of similar  incidents.  Lord Cranborne proceeded to  make a general statement on the  China question, saying the government's chief concern ab present was  to moderate the demands for indemnity aud see they did not infringe on commercial interests.  The government, therefore, was unalterably opposed to raising the  import duties to 10 per cent as  security for the payment of the  indemnity, and in reply to all such  suggestions had signified that  Great Britain would only consent  to such a raise of duties*in connection with commercial improvements  iu the Chinese financial system,  such as the abolition of the likin  taxes. As to moderating the total,  indemnity, there were more-ways  than one of achieving that object,  and China's burden might beper-  . ceptibly lightened by the method of  exacting punishment.  In "regard to the proposal that  the, indemnity be defrayed by a  loan guaranteed by a' concert of  the powers, undoubtedly China's  obligation to pay the indemnity-  was a joint obligation and, though  he hoped it would not be necessary,  if such a loan should be guaranteed  it would have to be by the joint  force of all the powers. The objection to a joint guarantee, however, was so obvious that the  government would have nothing to  do with it. Considering that  British credit stood higher than  that of any other powers, while  Great Britain only claimed a small  portion of the indemnity, it would  be nothing short of insane to  agree to guarantee the loan jointly.  After mentioning that 'three high-  placed delinquents had been executed, that three had been- permitted to commit suicide, that four  had been banished and that the  powers=had=demanded=the=punish-=  ment of 170 provincial culprits,  lord Cranborne concluded with saying that on the whole the affairs of  China were entering ou a more  pacific phase and that the government hoped to soon withdraw a  large portion of the British troops  from that country.  Lord Lansdowne made a statement in the house of lords similar  to the statement made by lord  Cranborne in the house of commons. He declared the government  desired to avoid an arrangement  for the payment of the indemnity  by which China would be compelled  to contract separate obligations,  and could not agree to the joint  guarantee of the loan. The government, therefore, had suggested  to the powers that China' should  give the powers bonds representing  the amount due to each of them.  These bonds might be extinguished  iu a term of years by the payment  of the principal and interest. Certain sources of revenue should be  earmarked and they could. be paid  to a board whicli should distribute  it. If China then mttde default it  would be to the powers collectively.  The government hoped the powers  would be content to base their  demands on common principles and  satisfy them from common sources,  and in default demand payment by  common action.  The proposed board would not be  concerned in the imposition or collection of taxes. If, in pursuance  of the suggested plan, payment was  exacted from China in bonds at  their face value, aud if possible to  arrange, as Great Britain was prepared to do, for not enforcing the  full amount of these annual payments at once, it would greatly improve  the position of   China and  British   Troops Will   Be Withdrawn  -   Immediately���The Officials Who  Were Punished.  render it easier for her to meet the  claims than if driven to the expedient of a loan. Iu regard to the  withdrawal of troops, the foreign  secretary said 3300 British troops  would leave immediately. From  the first Great Britain had indicated an objection to being drawn into  expeditions remote from Pekin. He  believed the feeling was shared by  the other powers, who desired the  arrival of the moment when it  would be possible to withdraw from  China.          " Trying the Constitution.  Bristol,, Rhode Island, May 21.���  Up and down Narragausett bay today .', tlie Constitution was put  through her first pace and acquitted  herself most satisfactorily. Startling out this afternoon in a dying-  out westerly wind she showed herself an excellent drifter while in  the afternoon a fine southwesterly  wind sent her scudding about the  bay in a lively fashion with little  fuss arid scarcely any foam under  her smooth bow or iu her clean  wake. Every point of sailing was  tried. She was hauled Hat on the  wind, thrown >about half a dozen  times, given a good broad reach and  finally sent home before the wind  with her boom off to port and at no  time did she act listless or show  any lack of speed. It was a business trial and confined entirely to  six or seven miles of deep water below Bristol harbor, no attempt being made to show her off.  War Veteran's Luck.  Dayton, Ohio,. May 21.���A copy  of the will of Josephine Kelata,.nee  Fairfax.'an English woman who recently died in France, has just been  received here, which bequeaths to  Hamlet Henri Hawthorne, a veteran of the Soldiers' Home, a fortune  of $2,500,000, this beiug his reward  for saving the woman from drowning.

Why? --Because - an existing route  is over 240 miles shorter. Had the  Crow's Nest Southern railway been  built from the coal mines at Pernio  south to a connection with the  Great Northern railway at Jennings or Kalispell in Montana, the  total mileage by way of that route  to Great Palls and other smelter  points would have been 213 miles  longer than by way of the Crow's  Nest Pass road to Lethbridge,  thence by the Great Palls & Canada  road to Great Palls. It is true the  latter road is a narrow gauge; but  gauges are easily changed. It is  said this will be done at once.  When it is done the Crow's Nest  Coal Company will be able, to market coal at Montana points over the  shortest possible railway, and the  greater part of the haul will be  over a road. largely built with  money donated by the people of  Canada and on which the rates are  controlled by the parliament of  Canada.    This is as it should be.  "Bon" Green has just got even  with some of his political enemies  in securing the appointment of  Alexander Lucas as mining recorder  at Kaslo. , The appointment was  opposed because Mr. Lucas was for  a time the provincial organizer of  the Conservative party. Mr. Green  is also a Conservative, but he  claimed that all those whom he had  recommended for office, except Mr.  Lucas, were Liberals, and he thought  it very unfair that the appointment of that gentleman should be  hung up because he happened to be  _a���Conservativer^Mrr^Lucas^wilL  make a good official, probably even  better than the professionals who  have lost office through taking too  active a part in partisan politics.  The starting of a -refinery* at  Nelson means that such industries  as paint works and sheet and lead  pipe works will follow. These  industries would employ many men,  and other industries would surely  follow. Mako Nelson the manufacturing center of British Columbia. One of the factors in operating industrial works cheaply is  within easy reach, that is, electric  power. No time should be lost in  making a start.  The city council should uot be in  too-great haste in introducing and  passing by-laws like the one laid  before the members of the council  last night. Street improvements  may be necessary, but it is much  better to make them slowly as  funds become available than in  haste by means of special assessments. Special assessments may  be legal, but, so far, no city in this  province has successfully adopted  the sytem.  While the Coast cities are chasing rainbows like the V., V. & E.  railway, Nelson should be looking  up capital to build a refinery.  Jacksonville's Heavy Fire Losses.

The first annual-general meeting  of the  shareholders  of  the Noble  Five company, which was held this  week in Victoria, was on the whole  very satisfactory.   While the property is somewhat heavily, encumbered with debt���a matter of over  a   hundred   thousand dollars���the  fact that, according to the manager's report, a magnificent body of  clean ore, supposed to be the continuance of the Last Chance yeiu,  has been encountered and  now is  to be actively exploited, undoubtedly improves the situation. From  other statements made at the meeting, it appears that Mr. Dunsmuir,  who is at one and the same time'the  mortgagor of the mine, chairman of  the company and one of the largest  shareholders, is acting in a most  magnanimous manner.   The mortgage matured in February last, but  JVIr. Duiismuiiuustead offorecloging,,  made  further  advances,    and  has  now signified his intention  of providing the necessary, funds for  the  development of the new find in the  direction of driving a tunnel a distance of over three hundred feet to  open up   the   ore body from  the  Noble Five  ground���the workings  heretofore having beeu conducted  from the Last Chance tunnel.   Another eminently satisfactory feature  of the proceedings was a resolution  authorizing the issuance of monthly  reports of progress and of tho condition of tho mine to shareholders.  1 believe this is the first instance of  a British Columbia mining company  adopting this policy, and  it would  be well if it were emulated.  A Knight of St. Gregory.  Tacoma, May 21.���At Dawson  two weeks ago Alexander McDonald, "King of the Klondike," was  made a knight of St. Gregory by  authority of a special letter from  the pope. The presentation was  made by Rev. father Gendrau, who  secured this signal honor for the  Klondike gold miner after long correspondence with Rome, in the  course of which he poiuted out Mr.  McDonald's generous benefactions.  Only two other Canadians have  thus been honored. They are former prime minister Mercier and  former governor Chapleau of  Quebec.   Charged With Murder.  Lewiston, Idaho, May 21. ��� A  sensation has been caused here by  the arrest of Jdhu N. King, a well-  known business man, charged with  the murder of Charles B. Thatcher.  The latter, who was a partner of  King, was murdered in the firm's i  store   at   Lapwai,   12 miles from j  .Lewiston, on the night of July 15th,  1898. King's statement ad the  coroner's inquest was to the effeeC  that two masked men entered the  store and shot Thatcher. Two  bullets of different caliber were  found in the body. The warrant  for King's arrest was issued on a  complaint made by Harry Thatcher,  a brother of the murdered man.  The state will attempt to prove  that King aud Thatcher quarreled  and that King took two revolvers  from the bed which both men  occupied and fired a bullet from  each into Thatcher's body.  Indian Uprising Feared.  Denver, Colorado, "May 21.���A  special to the News from Lander,  Wyoming, reports that .an Indian  outbreak is imminent on the Shoshone reserve. Six hundred Aarap-  ahoes have defied the authority of  the agent, captain Nickerson, who  . refused tliem permission to hold  their annual sun dance and denied  them passes. Trouble has been  brewing for some time from other  causes, such as the late orders giving them rations but twice a  month, instead of weekly as heretofore, and the failure of the government to issue seed grain for sowing. Captain Nickerson has applied  to the Indian department for  United States troops to maintain  his authority, svnd it is' feared a  clash may occur at any moment.  The Shoshones have not joined in  the revolt.  Investigating Phillips Case.  New York, May 21.���Tlie mysterious woman who was said to have  been known as "Mrs. Kirke Stanley,"  and to have figured in the father  Phillips case, was at the office of  coroner Bausch this morning. She  made a long statement under oath".  Later coroner Bausch said that  after questioning the woman closely  he was of the opinion that she  know * nothing J of the death;- of  father Phillips and could be of no  use at the inquest. So he withheld  her name, as her family was an  eminently respectable one.  Rumor has it that J. A. McDonald's ice cream parlors on Baker  street are the finest in the city.  Your Eyes and  Our Optical  Department  CHAPTER IV.      -  No muscular effort is noeded by-tho  normal cyo to see distant objects.  Sonic eyes are eo formed that thoy require a muscular exertion to see clearly  far objects.  Such nyes arc doubly strained when  used for. noar vision.  This condition is called Hyperopia, o-'  farsightedness, not because distant vis- -  ion is better than normal, quite Uio reverse; in many cases no amount of effort can give pcifuct sight, but-for the  treason that lfss exertion is needed to  see distant objects than near ones.  .   This exertion constitutes eyestrain,  among  the evils of  which arc 7n per  cent of the headaches and nervous afflictions, and which may bo relieved by  drug?, but can be cured only by removing the caiiHo.  ���That's what our glasses do.

Hyde, Isle of Wight, May 21 ���  The Shamrocks started today over  a course similar to the windward  aud leeward course of the contests  for the America's cup. Starting  from Noman fort the course was  laid fif teen miles to windward and  return. A moderate varying breeze  of 8 to 12 knots was blowing and  the water was smooth. Shamrock  II came around ahead of Fife's boat  and immediately after a signal was  given to let her out. She had a fine  start,   having   the    advantage    of  probably half a minute. Thoy  went off beating to windward on  short tacks, with the challenger  pointing rather better, going'faster  and increasing her lead a little on  every tack.

HEAVY-WEIGHT  PUGILISTS  Coming to Nelson,  A rare treat is in store for the  lovers of the manly art in Nelson,  as the Nelson Athletic Club announce that they have secured for  an exhibition here no less a personage than the celebrated aspirant  for world championship honors,  Gus Ruhlin, tlie "Ohio Giant," aud  his company of pugilistic stars.  With him comes Billy Madden,  who first discovered the great English fighter, Charlie Mitchell, and  brought that celebrated  boxer to  America and pitted him against all  the best men in the country, not  excepting John L, Sullivan, who  received his first set-back at the  hands of the English lad. In Nelson Ruhlin will box four full 3-  minute rounds with Denver "Ed"  Martin, the colored heavyweight  champion. Judging from the newspaper reports received from along  the line these two big heavy weights  aro putting up the fastest aud  hardest kind of an exhibition, and  at Detroit last week according to  report, Madden had to continually  warn both men to keep them from  making a genuine battle out of it.  In addition to the big fellows, Charlie Goff with a sparring partner,  Dal Hawkins and trainer, Billy  Armstrong, the club's manager,  who completed arrangements for  the appearance of Ruhlin and his  combination here, will also appear  with Danny Dean of Phoenix. The  manager is also arranging an S-round  glove contest "between Bob Hodge  of Idaho and George Neely of  Northport, to take place ono the  same evening. This should prove  to be the greatest array of fistic  talent ever congregated together in  the Kootenays, and as it is.the first  time we have ever had the chance  to see a candidate for world's championship honors, there is no doubt?  that the sports will turn out in  force to see the big fellow in action.  The company will appear at the  opera house on the evening of Saturday, June 1st.  TELEPHONE 27  E3i.   zb~x~:e:r,s <fc oo.  PAINTS, OILS ^D GLASS.  GARDEN   TOOLS.
