C, WEDNESDAY MORNING, JUNE 19,  1001  PRICE FIVE CENTS  C. P. R. STRIKE SITUATION  HOPEFUL VIEW TAKEN BY HIGH  OFFICIALS.  Claim Tliat Several of tho Gangs Who  Went Out Monday Have Returned to Work.  . Montreal, June 18.���D. McNicholl, the general manager of the  C. P. R , spoke very hopefully today  of the outcome of the strike of  trackmen on tire system. The company believe that time will be on  thuir side, and that iu the course of  tlie next few days, wheu they have"  had time to prrt the whole case  before the men individually, those  who have gone out will see the  advantages which they are sacri-  lii-ing and will return to work  whilo the company remains disposed to accept their labor.  "O.rradvicoH  show  that, several  gangs who went out yesterday have  , returned to work today,"' said Mr-.  -McNicholl, "and the reports indicate that more will be likt-ly to  follow. The strike, however, in by  no means'general. In some sections  not Lhii per- cent have responded to  the call of the committee. Some of  the trackmen seem to be under the  impression that if they should  return to work after having once  thrown up their employment they  would be discriminated against, but  this is not so.   The company has no  , intention of doing anything of  the  kind."  "Taking at tlio situation all round,  I am convinced that the strike is  practically over; that it has lix'/Jed  out. Many of tho men have not  ���yet received onr circulars, showing  'what has been' done for them ;  showing that-,advantageous as their  .positions were compared with other  railways before this strike began,  ,w�� have made concessions of a ver-y  substantial 'character, and that  these place them far beyond .what  other companies who are our competitors in the different parts of  the system are offering. The public need have no apprehension whatever as regards the conditions of  the track. Every mile of track is  being patrolled. The line* is in good  shape and is being thoroughly  taken care" of. This is one of the  demands of th'e committee, whicli  tlie railway company did not grant:  All maintenance of way department  employes shall be granted passes  once"a month to and from any  point on the road-master's division  they   are   employed   on,  provided  ��� that not more than one-half of  the  force will be  absent  from  duty at  any one time."  ators  interviewed today  say that  they have nothing to .strike for.  Bkandon, Man., June IS.���Not 10  per cent of the C. 1*. IL. sectionmen  have gone ont. Labor is very plentiful, aud all vacancies can be readily filled. 'A prominent politician  here makes the statement that the  condition of-the railway trackmen  is better than the average laborer,  they having au assured position all  the year round.  'Newport. Vermont, June IS.���A  number of C. P. Ii. trackmen who  went ont on strike have already returned to work.  "POTATO PATCH" PINGREE  OF MICHIGAN DIED YESTERDAY  IN LONDON.  Was  Extremely Popular   in   Detroit,  Where   He   Inaugurated  Many Reforms.  Martin Clair Was Suffccited.  The Dawson 2\Tews of May 31st  gives the following accouut of how  Mar-tin Clair, a miner who was well  known iu Kootenay, met his death  in a mine not far- from Daw.sou.  The News says: "A coroner's inquest was held at the Forks by captain McDonuell on the death of  Martin Clair-, who was found dead  at the bottom of a 25 foot shaft on  Little Skookuiu hill. The "jury decided Clair died from suffocation  from the effects of gas breathed  while in the mine, through his own  carelessness, and recommended that  the mine be ventilated before again  being used. Clair was a miner. He  disappeared Friday.night, and was  found dead Saturday at the bottom  of the shaft of a mine opposite No.  2, Bonanza. Tie has a family in  Scotland. The body is being  brought to Dawson today."  -  THE REASON WHY CAPITAL  McAdam. N. B., June 18.���  Threats are being made by some of  the striking C. P. R. trackmen to  the effect that now they have gone  out they are going to demand from  the compauy more tlmn they  originally intended. Representations are being sent to the company  in Montreal to call mass labor-  meetings in the largo cities to try  to create public sympathy aud get  the newspapersto talk, or else it  may be thought that thero is really  no strike.  St. John, N. B., June 18.���Several  of the C. P. li. section gangs here  have returned to work. Everything  is quiet. Sectionmen on the government railways are watching the  issue with a good deal of interest,  as they feel if the C. P. R. men, who  already have higher pay than they  have, get another advance it will  be their turn next.  'Montreal, June IS.���Reports received here from different points  along the C. P. R. show that the  whole system is being thoroughly  patrolled, that trains are running  as usual, and that the trackmen's  strike has not interfered with the  regular service. At a lato hour  tonight reports from all quarters  show that a large number of the  foremen are returning to work and  bringing the section men with  them.  The statement in an evening  paper that the carpenters employed  by the G. P. R. had gone ont iu  sympathy with the striking trackmen is entirely unfounded.  It is reported that J. T. Wilson  of St. Louis, Mo., official organizer  for the trackmen, is very much dis-  anpointpd thti, he cannot persuade  the C. P. R. telegraph operators to  take any hand iu the strike.   Oper-  Does Not Seek British Columbia.  II. 13'.  Thomson,  ex-aldermau  of  Nelson and ex-manager of Turner,  Beeton ��fc Co.'s Nelson branch house,  who h-ft Nelson to take the management of a trading syndicate  located at Quesnel 1 in Cariboo, has  been on a trip to the old country  since last December. He arrived in  Nelson day before yesterday on his1  return', and tells his friends some  amusing experiences he had to go  through while en route iu the West.  Speak*uTg'i"��f*Ttr7ies~iir"the old country, Mr. Thomson says that the old  country has had four or- five years  of 'great prosperity, and that a  period of quieter times is sure to  follow. Capital is not seeking British Columbia" for investment, for  the reason that tlie returns on the  capital so far invested here have  not been so good as to create,a  favorable impression. On the other  hand, capital is easily obtained for  speculative mining in West Africa.  Mr. Thomson will remain here for a  time.  Looking for a Lost Cup  Two years ago J. Fred Hume  donated a cup to be played for by  the Jaero-se teams for the championship of Kootenay, and it was  won that year by the Nelson team.  Since then the cup has disappeared.  Yesterday an effort was made to  "loeateTi t". Some-o f "the- boys- said"  the genial J. Fred had merely made  a bluff and had not purchased the  cup at all. Others said that "Jakie"'  Dover had knocked down the cup  after getting paid for it. : Others,  again, claimed that "Dave" Carley!  who was chairman of the sports  committee that year, had sold the  cup and used the proceeds to buy a  paper cuttor. During; the discus?  sioii.tbe donor of the cup came  along, and cwhen the accusation  against him was repeated, he was  indignant, and said the cup was for  a time in "BUly" Thurman's window.  '���Jakie" Dover, who was also .-present,  made a speech on the question at  issue. He said, "You know I know  nothing at all about it. At that  time I was selling so much that I  could not keep track of anything."  The delegation who were discussing  the question decided to go to Thurman's iu a body and demand the  cup. "Billy" was out, . but his  partner was in. Asked as to the  whereabouts of the cup, he replied:  "Why, yes; it is knocking around  here somewhere," and he began  looking among some odds aud ends  under a cigar counter. The cup  has not been found, bub the boys  are hot on its trail.  London, June IS.���Ex-governor  Pingree of Michigan died today.  Tho diagnosis made by London  specialists of the cancerous affection of the intestiues from which  Mr. Pingree suffered left practically  no hope for tbe patient's recovery.  Toward the end of his illness Mr.  Pingree suffered great pain and  weakened rapidly. He was unable  to retain nourishment. His mind,  however, remained fairly clear.

Nkw York, June 18.���It was.an-'  nounced today by the International  Association of Machinists that the  750 men involved in the sti ike at  Lexington Mountain's Ledges.  The development of the Imperial  and Eva groups by the London and  British Columbia Gold Fields is ex-'  pected to bring into prominence  the gold ledges of Lexington mountain in the Lardeau. This is a comparatively new district, aud although1 the entire mountain has  been staked very little development  -has-been done outside the-proporties-  held by the Imperial Development  Syndicate, the most promising of  which are now virtually under bond  to the London and B. C. Gold Fields.  Such work as has been done on the  mountain, however, would point to  the conclusion that Lexington  mountain is a distinctively gold  district, very little galena having  been encountered.  On the Eva and Imperial groups  the work done lias, exposed two  ledges .of gold-bearing quartz, running parallel to each other and  about.{150 feet afjart. The largest  of these is about sixteen feet in  width, and what is regarded as a  conservative estimate on the value  of the ore places it at $20 to the  toil' The other ledge is much  smaller, but is much more clearly  defiped, having two, smooth walls!  The ore in this ledge is very rich,  gold being visible in many of the  specimens, so that it admits of some  very fancy assays.  The general feeling throughout  the district is that Lexington mountain is peculiarly fortunate in getting the Loudon and B. C. company  interested in its development. This  company not only has ample means  for carrying on the necessary work  to thoroughly develop the 'property,  but it has had phenomenal luck  with all of tlm properties it has  taken hold of. It is on the cards  for the London and .B. C. to produce another Ymir in the Imperial  and Eva properties, and in the case  of the Lardeau properties it has a  much more favorable showing to  start in with.  Rossland, June   18.���Dal  Hawkins, lightweight champion of tbe  Pacific Coast, defeated Billy Armstrong, champion of British Columbia, here tonight in the sixth round.  The contest was fast and scientific  and the best man won.   In the first  threo rounds honors  were  evenly  divided,   Armstrong    forcing    the  fighting and  Hawkins   playing   a  waiting   game.   After the first of  the fourth Hawkins took the offensive;   In the fifth he was still more  aggressive,   and   in   the sixth   he  forced the fighting.    The sixth and  lastround opened with Armstrong  landing a left hander on  Hawkins'  nose.* Hawkins  reciprocated  with  left   and   right   hands,  and   after  Armstrong had landed lightly with  his left the men clinched.   As they  were   together   Armstrong    swore  vigorously at one of the spectators  on the stage,  who  had  been  applauding Hawkins in a manner that  Armstrong thought offensive.    On  the conclusion  of  the  clinch Armstrong left an  opening and  Hawkins  lauded a   vicious  upper   cut  ��� similar to those which have landed  so many fights for him.     The blow  ���took Armstrong in the neck  below  the point of the jaw and staggered  him.    He went'across the stage on  his heels, eyes glass and arms rigid.  Hawkins   followed his    man    and  although .Armstrong attempted   a  counter the  effort was  weak  and  Hawkins finished him with a left to  .the; jaw anda right-to. the neck.t  'Armstrong" fell in the "corner, rolled'  on his face  and  was  counted  out.  He recovered within a few minutes.  Armstrong had a bad hand and received  a  cocaine  injection  in  the  member before' entering  the  ring,  although it was conceded that he  was beaten on  the  merits   of the  fight.  In a preliminary Kid Lee'of Montana defeated Sam McKay of Iloss-  land in one rouud. McKay was  floored four times and his seconds  threw up tho sponge.  (Maher) won the  Brissac was second  third.

It is from them.that  the bank obtained most,of the 25,-** iy&  125,000"ffanes," which'' represents'its ~\ ���*$  net profits during the business year  1000-1.   Large profits they seem to:  be, but in view of the  fact that'  there was ,an exposition  in Paris  during 1900, and that most of tho  foreign visitors tried their luck at/<  ?Z,M  Monte Carlo, they are really extra- -  ordinarily small.  "ln 1880, during the previous ex- r  position in Paris, the profits of the  bank amounted to 37,000,000 francs; >  yet this year they are only 23,000,-  000. The Boer war has also hurt  business, for it has kept away the  English, who are, as a rule, the best  patrons of the bank. 'Another  cause of the poor business is the  unquestionable fact that people are  becoming more cautious about playing every year. A proof of this" is  the fact that the number of suicides  has lately decreased. Formerly it  was-not^unasual���for-a-distracted-  player to kill himself, but now we  very seldom hear of such an occurrence.  "In short, the outlook for the  bank is extremely bad, and if the  players continue as cautious as they*  are now the dividends of the shareholders will speedily fall to 30 or 25  per cent. During the past business  year a dividend of 42 per cent was  declared, but this was very small  as compared with the profits during those years when Blanc still  wielded the scepter in Monte Carlo  and coined millions out of nothing.  Others, however, besides the bank  are now suffering. In former-years  the French press received from one  to two million francs annually  from the bank, but recently their  allowance was cut down to 750,000>  francs, and last year they got only  500,000. On the other hand, the  civil list of the prince of Monaco  has been increased from 1,250,000 to  1,750,000 francs, and the bishop of  Monaco, who formerly received  30,000, now receives 50,000 francs.  The prince's army costs the bank  000,000 francs, but, unless business-  improves very soon, it is practically  certain that the prince will set the  other powers of Europe a good ex^  ample by disbanding his army."  Cut His Friend's Throat.  Ogdunscurg, N. Y., June 18.���  Arthur Chapron surrendered himself at police headquarters today,  saying he had killed John Leahy at  the Maple City hotel. Investigation,  showed that the men had been  drinking together last night and?  that during a drunken quarrel'  Leahy's throat had been cut. The  windpipe was severed and the  physician said the man could not  recover. ���,  i  %  ./. I'liT  f.r'^,*i*'**?^?!*^^^'^^'''-:'  t  j  ��� j  I!!

C.  - Thr more the outbursts against  our mining laws are investigated,  ' the more evident it is that the outbursts are not based on facts. They  were started in an attempt  to  discredit a government, and are  now  kept up  in  the  hope that the real  cause of the  depression  in'mining  will be overlooked, and  the depres-.  ��� sion attributed to a cause that has  little'to do with the question.    No  country has a better location law;  in no country can claims be held  ' with,less actual  work; the  cost of  procuiiuga crown grant is less in  this  province than   in  auy other  country; it has never been charged j  that our officials or  our courts  are  corrupt; in no  country have merchants been more liberal in extending credit; Uritish  Columbia is not  the only mining  country that has  aneight-hour'day for men working  underground; the rate  of taxation  is extremely liberal,  for  no  taxes  are paid unless a mine' is shipping  ore.    If these are not statements of  fact, let them be disproved, not by  the   vaporing   mouthings  of   men  -who-pose-around-hotel3=as=inining=  men and who have not the capacity  to   intelligently  muck  in  a  mine,  but by comparing the law in force  in    other   mining   countries   with  those in force in British Columbia,  and by  comparing the  reports  of  mining    companies     operating    in  other  countries   with  thoso   operating in  tliis  province.    Facts are  what  tl.e   people  want, and   they  will no longer iw-eopt the mouthings  of self styled  mining 'men  as  any  evidence at nil.  "Wim*- the ni'-n who are declaiming UL'Jiirrst the mining laws of  British Columbia give the names of  the .successful British mining companies operating i��> British Columbia? "Will they then give the names  of th-; British mining companies  operating in this province that  have been rank failures? Afterwards, will they be'so kind as to  give tlie real reasons that caused  these British mining companies to  be failures? This ii the information that the people iu. the old  country want.  One of the large mining companies operating at Butte, Montana, is  namsd the " Colusa-Parrot Company.". Last year it mined 23l.,Uo5  tons of ore, of the average value of  $8.27 per toil. The cost of mining  the ore was $8.01 and transporting  it to a .smelter 27A cents per ton.  Smelting charges were $3.35. Total  charged for mining, transporting,  /and smelting $7-.2ty, which leaves  $1.03i a ton as profit. These figures show that over in Montana, at  one of the greatest mining camps  in the world, ore that is worth only  $8.27 per ton is mined and smelted  at a profit. .Why do not the managers of some of the big low-grade  niines in British Columbia give figures as to the value of the ore  mined, the cost of transporting the  ore to smelters, and the charge per  ton for i-melting? These are the  (ignres that the people' want to see  in print. They no longer care to  hear the mere opinions of vapid  ranters who' poso as mine, managers ; they want facts:  Imagine theSpokaneSpokesman-  Review getting it's Associated Press  reports via Seattle. Yet, every  line of Associated Press report that  is received at Nelson and Rossland  first goes to Vancouver, and is then  filtered back from that one-horse  town to the two great commercial  cities of Eastern British Columbia.  This is what makes a newspaper  tired.  Thb Rossland Miner of Saturday,  Hmnt9=editorial=columnsr=has==what  purports to be au interview between a reporter of the London  Times and the agent-general of  British Columbia some time in  July next. The Miner makes one  mistake in the interview. The  London Times does not employ  fools for reporters.  Is there a single mine in British  Columbia owned, managed, and operated by oltl country men exclusively that is irow a success? Ia  thero a single mine that was owned,  managed, and operated by Americans successfully previous to its  sale to old countrymen which is  now successfully operated ? If not,  why not? ^_   Alaskan Railroad Venture.  SEjVTTIjE. June IS. ���From late advices   it is evident  that  a  trans-  Alaskan railroad will be constructed  in the near future.     Briefly stated,  it is proposed to build a steel highway from lliamna Bay on the  southern shore of the Alaskan pwn-  insula to Nome, Teller City and  Behring straits. The preliminary  surveys have just been completed  by Norman R. Smith. The heavy  financial bankers of the undertaking are said to be eastern capitalists. The line will cover about  S00 miles and will run through the  very heart of the Alaskan gold belt.  A Preacher and His Gun.  Berkley, Cal., Juue 18.���Dr. J.  G.

I  CITY LOCAL HEWS  The Tribune will always be pleased  to receive and pay for exclusive news.  It does not care for ,the news that is  handed in.with the remark: "O, I am  giving this to both papers."  The city engineer can get an object  lesson in sidewalk grades by carefully  examining and comparing the sidewalk  at. tho corner of the Bank of Montreal  nnd'<at the Elliot block corner with  that at the corner of the Broken Hill  block and the Turner-Boeckh block.  The Ymir mine is now making regular shipments of concentrates to the  local smelter. These shipments -of concentrates have been'-'coming in for the  past two'weeks at the rate of a carload  per day; and there are snid to be still  considerable of them at the mine awaiting shipment.  City engineer McCulloch expects to  have the outlet for the west Baker  street sewer completed today, when  connections- on Bakor and Vernon  Rireets west of Kootenay may be made.  Tomorrow a start will be made on the  sewer work ordered in the upper portion of the city.  Word was received in Nelson yesterday to tne effect that Dr. E. C. Arthur  had been appointed grand warden of the  grand lodge I. O. O. F.. and that A. H.  Clements had been appointed grand inside sentinel of the grand encampment.  The news of these" appointments will  be received with pleasure by the members of the order in this city.  '"Billy" Grant who for several years  was employed as bookkeeper for P..

R. depot 10  cases of Manila cigars which were im-,  ported direct from Manila to this city.  The Express Cigar Company has made  arrangements for p. bonded warhouse,  and ,-will give special attention to imported lines in the cigar trade in addition to handling the best brands of  Canadian made cigars.  ��� John Lynch has completed his contract for the supplying of tlie poles required for the electric light service,  having delivered the. last two cars ofj  -poles at the mountain, station yesterday. Mr. Lynch will leave for Rossland  today, where he will complete his ,arrangements for the carrying out of the  work outlined on the Referendum group  on Forty-nine creek.

".In-the'fall of 1892 the publishers of  The Tribune placed an order for paner  with Barber & Ellis, paper dealers, Toronto, and it was. filled satisfactorily  without a Question being asked. .The'  same firm has sold The Tribune the  bulk of its stationery ever since, and  yesterday their representative, J. R.  Easton. was in Nelson and received one  of the largest orders for flat paper ever  given him by, a western printing office.  Nq\v that''.tho directors of the public  library have received a municipal grant  sufficient to enable them to Icood the library going for several months it will  ..not be amiss.;:to- suggest that they de-  viseisome other system, than that of Imposing a fine in cases in which books  are kept out for a greater.period than  thrit ni'escribed.in the, rules of the library. The'fine is objectionable to many  who would prefer postirg a cash deposit with the library sufficient to cover  the co3t of any book that might be  taken out. the same to be forfeited in  the event of any book not being re-  ti.rned.  ~~The Nelson smelter is now producing  rbout 25 tons of lead bullion per tlav..  which uses up about 140 tons of ore. It  will thus be seen that the operation >f  the local smelter furnishes the Cara-  dian Pacific railway with an outward  business from Nelson of over $400 per  day in the movement of the bullion  alone./if to this is added the wafres  paid by the smelting company to the  men directly employed, as well as the  wages earned by the men employed in  handling the ores and fluxes coming into the smelter, "a very pood idea may be  formed of the advantage which the operation is to this city.  Although yesterday was the second  day.of the C. P. R. roadmen's strike, it  has po far failed to have, any effect on  the Koot-jnay division of the Canadian  Pacific system. So far ns known there  was not a. man on any of the branch  lines running into Nelson who had quit  work by reason of the strike order.  Opinion differs very widely as to whether th'e trackmen on the Kootenay division are well organized. Some hold  that the fact that none of them hav  gone out is good evidence that there in  little or no organization among thorn,  but others who profess to be well in  formed say that the men on the Ko'ito-  ray division have not yet received word  to go out. but that when they do they  will obey the summons.  The second synod of the diocese of  Kootenay will open in St. Saviour's  church this morning. It is expected that  upwards of thirty clergy and lay delegates will bo in attendance. The business of the session will be chiefly of a  routine nature.  Angus Lamont and James Pollock of  Princeton are reported to have received  $13,000 yesterday as the purchase price  of 1280 acres of coal lands in the Simil-  1-i.meon valley, tlie purchasers being the  Similkameen Valley Company, Limited.  This company now owns 7G80 acres of  coal hinds in this valley, upon wliich  development work is to be undertaken  nt once.  At a meeting of the retail clerks held  last evening it was decided to have an  excursion on the steamer Mor'ie on  Thursday afternoon. The steamer will  leave the city wharf at 2 o'clock, and  run up the lake as far as Balfour. Here  a stop of half an hour will be made. On  the return trip to Nelson the steamer  will be due at the city wharf at 6 p. m.  The fare for the round trin has been  placed at 50 cents.  George E. Foster, formerly minister  of finance in the Conservative administrations which preceded the present one  is one of the.lucky shareholders in the  Imperial Development Syndicate, which  is about to close a very desirable deal  with-tne London'ft British. Columbia  Gold Fields for some eleven claims in  the Lardeau. During the past few years  Mr. Foster has sunk considerable money  in the development of British Columbia properties, from which he has had  comparatively small returns, and the  knowledge that he is likely to make a  good turn-over on his Imperial Development holdings will be received with  satisfaction, as Mr. Foster deserves good  luck.  The' Ontario Powder Works has decided to go out of the powder m-mufac-  lurins business, wliich for some time  past it has carried on on its promises  opposite Five-mile point. Advances in  Ihe cost of :-aw materials, which could  not be got out of the manufactured article are said to be the company's chief  reasons for retiring; from the'business  of: manufacturing for the Kootenay  market. The company has now instructed Messrs. Charles A. Waterman & Co.  to sell by public auction the whole of  the company's real estate, plant, and  fixtures. This 'sale has been fixed' for  Tuesday, July,, 30th, and an advertisement of the same appears in another  column.  COUNTY   COURT   TANGLES  Straightened Out Yesterday.  Yesterday's 'session of the county  court was occupied in settling a number of small' disputes, and -the experience of the day went to show that the  smaller the amount the more difficulty  there is of effecting a settlement.  The case of; Urquhart vs. the New  North Fork Mining Company was an action brought by'the plaintiff to recover  the sum of $107, being the amount alleged to be due for wages for work performed upon the defendant company's  property near'-Erie. The defendants:  sought to have a setoff entered for some  $00, being the amount due to the company by the plaintiff by reason of a  ci.II upon some stock held by him. The  counter claim was shut out. but the defence was able to cut down the balance  due for wages'to $4.42, and judgment  for this amount was entered on the understanding that execution shall not issue until the matter of the claim for arrears of assessment is' disposed of, provided suit is entered within the next ten  da**s.  Collins vs. Nqyes was another Erie  case in which the plaintiff, a hotel-  keeper, sought to recover the sum of  $26.30. the amount of. a board bill. The  =deiendant=owed=a=bar=bill=as=well-as=a=  board bill and paid $50 on account. This  amount, it was endeavored to prove,  should have been applied on the board  bill, but the plaintiff applied it on the  liquor account. Judgment was given for  the full amount claimed and $24 costs.  The case of MeLeod vs. ,Anton Zet-  tler was an action'over a plastering job,  the amount in dispute being $22. The  point ln dispute was whether the plastering was to be done by contract or by  day's work, the plaintiff seeking to establish a contract. The evidence taken  was so contradictory that the court decided to continue the case so that some  other testimony-could be secured.  In the case of Zattoni vs. the Western  Canada Accident Association, an action  to recover the sum of $56. the defence  secured an adjournment upon terms, the  ���efence to pay the costs of the day iD  any event.  Radcliffe vs. Provost was an action to  recover the sum of $50 for work performed upon a mineral claim.* It proved  to be a very much mixed up case, the  witnesses contradicting each other point  blank. Judgment was given for- the  plaintiff for the full amount claimed,  but without costs.  TKIjKI'HONK 27  si.   :r-__~:eii:e_s sd go  PAINTS, OILS A.ND GLASS.  GARDEN   TOOLS.
