C, FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE 21, 1901  -V.-?���  '5  PRICE FIVE CENTS  MEANS MUCH TO AINSWORTH  THE HIGHLANDER TUNNEL WILL  WORK WONDBRS.  Will .Drain the Camp of Water and  Permit Economic Working of  Several  Properties.  Although nothing authentic has  been learned as yet as to the values  of the ore encountered in the long  tunnel of the Highlander property  at Ainsworth, the mere fact of  striking the Highlander ledge at  this great depth is taken as an  assurance of the future of the  camp. Too much cannot be said in  favor of the pluck of Maxwell  Stevenson of Philadelphia, who in  the face of discouragement after  discouragement continued to manifest his confidence in the camp, and  in the end succeeded in accomplishing what several others attempted  before him, but failed.  All told, Mr. Stevenson and his  associates have spent upwards of  $100,000 in the development of the  Highlander property, tlie big development tunnel alone representing an expenditure of close upon  ,$25,000 for labor alone. It is now  iu very nearly 1000 fceb and has  beeu put in so as to accommodate  a double track .tramway, the "idea  of its projectors being to work all  other   big   properties in   the  mill is operated by one of the finest  little horse-powers in the country,  140 horse-power being developed  with a small stream of water with  a head of over 1000 feet.  MINES  PAYING  DIVIDENDS  the  camp through it, ample.-provision  having been made in its construction for the carrying off of the  large volume of water which is to  be expected when Loon lake is  reached. <-  The former work upon the High-  t&uider was done on. the outcrop of  the vein near the top of the hill, at  an. elevation of about 1300 feet  above the level of the lake. From  these workings some very high  grade ore was taken, its chief value  being in silver. All the ledges in  the Ainsworth camp appear to~run  north and south, so-that by con-  ' tinusng the big tunnel for a sufficient distance they could all be cut.  The Highlander ledge has been  traced on the surface for a considerable distance to Cedar creek. In  running in the big tunnel the Tariff  ledge was" cut last summer, and it  is a simple matter of calculation  now to estimate how far it would  have to be continued to catch the  Little Donald ledge, which runs  parallel to that of the Highlander.  The "Highlander vein dips back  from the lake, and where it has  been cut in the big tunnel is well  within the lines of the Little Donald property.  Those  who are at   all   familiar  with the lay of the properties in  -the-^Ainsworth���camp-will- readily  appreciate    the    important    part  which the Stevenson  tunnel  must  play in  its development.    Heretofore   the   great difficulty  encountered in the development  of the  properties .has been with respect to  the great quantities of water to be  dealt with.   Just above  the Highlander on one side is a great swamp  and ou the other is Loon like. This  very considerablebody of water is'  held on the mountain side by what  appears to be some rim rock, aud it  lays virtually over what has always  been regarded as some very rich  properties, notably the Lady of the  Lake and the King Solomon mines.  Indeed the early eiforts ab development in the camp were in no small  measure   directed   with a view to  getting rid of this  lake.     The first  efforts were directed   to lowering  the level of the lake by  means of  ditching, and by  breaking through  the rim rock the level of the lake  was lowered somewhat, but the undertaking promised to be very expensive and was finally abandoned.  This work was undertaken by Dan  Clark and his  partners while  they  were the owners of the Lady of the  Like property, and when they had  abandoned   the   ditching    process  they tried to syphon out the lake,  but this also failed.  Maxwell Stevenson has been interested in the Highlander property  since the spring of 1893. He and  his associates own the Highlander  and the Ivanhoe properties, the  Highlander being a location under  the old law, which permitted the  following of the dip of the vein. Of  the Ivanhoe property it is generally  conceded that its chief value is as a  mill site, Mr. Stevenson having on  it a concentrating plant with a capacity of 100 tons per day.     This  Encouraging News From a Mine.  London, June 10.���A cable has  just been received from the Ymir  company's representative at Nelson,  announcing that the present rate  of extraction by the cyanide process is 00 per cent in gold.     The  estimated profit, per month,  with  final plant, is $7000.    Iu connection  with this cable the following circular has been issued by the secretary:  "As   you   are aware,  experiments  have been carried out over an extended period with a view to the  extraction of the gold remaining in  the   tailings'* by    means    of    the  cyanide process. These experiments  were in the first instance carried  out upon a small scale with satisfactory results, after which a small  and complete plant was laid down  for treating some hundreds of tons  per month.   The result of this later  bulk is given in the following table  just   received:     'Cyanide   process,  present      rate       of       extraction  is gold 90 per cent, estimated profit  per month (with)  final plant $7000  (-81450).'   This information is" very  gratifying,   as   the   above   figures  represent an additional profit from  this   source of   some,��17,000   per  annum, equal to 8h per cent on the  total capital of the company."  LAST DAY OF THE.SYNOD  NOTWITHSTANDING THE CRIES OF  THE BLUE RUIN SHOUTEBS.  British Columbia Leads Both' Montana  and Idaho' in the Number of  Dividend-Faying Mines  - Adjournment Taken at Noon.  The second synod of the diocese  of Kootenay completed its labors  yesterday at the forenoon session.  The first order of business at yesterday's session was the consideration  of the canon on superannuation.  Several amendments were made to  the proposed canon in committee,  and clauses nine and ten were  finally left to be dealt with, by a  special committee to be appointed  by the bishop. _   .  After the adoption of the report  of the committee of the whole the  bishop, appointed Rev. II. S.' Akehurst, Rev. C. A. Prociinier, E. A.  Crease, George Johnstone and J. M.  Lay a committee to consider and  report on the clauses in question.'  The bishop announced the consecration of tho church at Grand  Porks on Tuesday of next week,  and stated that members of the  "synod would be made welcome at  Grand Forks upon that occasion.  On motion of Rev. H. Steele,  seconded by Dr. Westwood, it was  decided to appoint a committee on  temperance, and the bishop appointed the following: Rev. W. A.  Robbins, Rev. H. - Steele, the archdeacon, Robert Wood, Messrs. Gray,  H. C. Hannington and Dr. West-  wood.  The motion on Sunday observance, of which Rev. Ii. Beacham  gave- notice,--was withd rawir- in"  favor of the following, moved by  Rev. H. S. Akehurst, seconded by  Rev. H. Beacham: That we, the  members of the synod of Kootenay,  would very strongly urge upon our  parishes the importance of religious  observance of the Lord's Day,  which should never be lost sight of  in the search for-recreation.' We  would also express our sincere sympathy with all who are endeavoring to secure for the wage-earning  population this one day of rest in  the seven.  The registrar, E.'A,'-Crease, presented the report of the vatious  parishes and missions, with the  naturo of the title and the amount  of taxes, etc. He. strongly urged  upon the clergy, and parish officers  the necessity of taking immediate  steps to secure proper title and  registration. A resolution in accordance with this suggestion was then  moved by Mr. Crease and seconded  by Rev. H. S. Akehurst.  On motion of Rev. H. Steele,  seconded hy Dr. Westwood, it was  resolved that when the deeds of  church property have been duly  registered and accepted they shall  be forwarded to the registrar of  the.diocese.  The remainder of the session was  then given over to the passage of  votes of thanks. The first was to  the rector and wardens of St.  Saviour's church and school room  for the use of the synod. The second  was to Rev. J. H. Lambert for his  sermon on Wednesday evening,  coupled with the request that he  send it to the Canadian Churchman  for publication. The secretary was  also requested to forward a vote of  thanks to the Nelson Club for the  courtesy extended to the members  of the synod.  When statistics are sought for  and found, they do not confirm the  statements made by the gang of  blue-ruin shouters that are now decrying British- Columbia .as a field  for mining investments. Instead,  they go to prove that British  Columbia, considering^ the age of  its quartz mining industry, stands  well-to the front. Quartz mining  as a business, carried on by incorporated companies, dates from  1895, and is therefore but six years  old in British Columbia. In Montana and Idaho and Utah and California, quartz mining has been  carried on by incorporated companies for over 20 years. In Montana, 13 companies have paid dividends ; in Idaho, but 7. In Utah,  20" companies have declared dividends, and in California 20. British  Columbia, the youngest of all quartz  ���mining countries, has 17 incorporated companies that has declared  dividends, as the list below goes to  show'. These are figures that should  be printed0for circulation, .because  they will tend to give people confidence :  in the Oberon. the music hall that  brought him a monthly, revenue of over  $1600. Here he had seen thousands of  men before him add to his growing  liches, while trying to "beat the machine." So it is that Carl August Thilo,  l>on vivant, good fellow, and- successful business man has gone mad. At the  Oberon there are many card machines  from the synod on this whole question  cigars. Many a good dollar they brought  the house. One day, strangely enough,  vhile watching them, the proprietor became interested. He wished to try his  own fortune thero in a gambling game  of solitaire against himself, and he must  have lost. But he would not give it up.  On his last big play he hired a small  boy to pull down the handle and"dropped $1850 without stopping,-in a Clover-  dale machine.

New York, June 20.���The Italian  consul, general Giovanni Branchia,  has received the following letter  from a committee of English-speaking anarchists, who held a meeting  Tuesday afternoon in the home of  an up-town physician: "To the  Italian Consul: -~ Knowing the  temper of the Paterson comrades,  we, the English:speaking anarchists  of New York and vicinity, .would  earnestly request you to desist  from employing spies any' further.  We fear that if persisted in this  may lead to bloodshed, which we  deplore." Tuesday's meeting was  attended by leading members of  the anarchist group in Philadelphia  and Boston. Four of the nine men  at the meeting were physicians.  The meeting was called because of  threats made at a meeting of Paterson anarchists held Monday night.  It was decided to send a letter to  the consul-general. . The English-  speaking anarchists have made au  arrangement with the anarchists in  Paterson by which the latter were  to commit no act of violence for  soven days. When that period has  elapsed it will -be' known whether  the Italian consul has decided to  abandon the system which it is said  has been in Paterson since Bresci  assassinated king Humbert.  Wanted Pive Aces. '  The nickei-ih-the-slot machine has  driven C.-A. Thilo of San Francisco to  _ madness. Por days, weeks and months  he dropped large sums of his fortune  into the polished, gambling boxes in a  forlorn effort to get five aces. Finally,  his strange mania was declared a new  form of absolute insanity by the courts,  and he was committed to Napa asylum  by judicial order to stop the heavy  drain on his income., Thilo himself  maintains that he is not mad and  throughout his struggle for liberty still  avers that it is possible to get five aces  for a nickel and win a big prize, pther  men who have played the slot machine,  and their name is legion, told him it  could "not be done. Thilo answered that  he would prove it and to that end he  has dropped a small fortune in nickels,  a fortune that runs up into the thou-  &ands, but he never got more than four  aces at any one time. Day after day he  has dropped $25, $50, $60' and some  times as high as $100 in nickels, into the  insatiable slot, until all his pockets have  bulged with the cigars, prizes, but  r:eyer the five aces he so coveted. Once  early in his strange auest he nearly had  it, but the fifth ace fell and a king took  its place. That proved his undoing, for  it held out the alluring hope that sometime he would succeed, and his passion  for playing the slot machine superseded  everything else, even bjs personal pride  The vigilance bf the Nelson police  yesterday.frustrated what looked  very much like an attempt at wife  desertion  on the part of  a   man  i,��i7,uuu   whose   name   the   police   did   not  i'l��'ooo I afcterPPfc to secure.   The woman in  > ..-.���   the case was a Miss-Williams a few  months ago, --and',.who. appears - to  have been singularly - unfortunate  in her matrimonial ventures.  She first became known to the  city police some three or four  months'ago, * when she arrived in  the city from Winnipeg in search  of her brother and her intended  husband. . As she was without  means she was maintained for several days at one of the' city hotels  at the corporation's expense until  some trace could be secured of  those for whom she was in search.  The police finally located the parties in Rossland, and the woman  was furnished with transportation  and started on her way. Nothing  further was heard from her until  Wednesday, when the police were  again called in to locate her hus-  bandL  It~appears tliat" upon going to  Rossland Miss Williams, either  from choice   or   necessity,  shifted  Greenwood,   June   20.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Pursuant to call  an extraordinary general meeting  of shareholders of the Brandon and  Golden   Crown   Mining    Company'  was   held   tonight, ���when ib   "was  unanimously decided to reconstruct  the company on an assessable basis.  Of 1,500,000 shares, over  1,200,000  was   represented   at ihe meeting.'  Necessary special resolutions were,  passed for placing the company in  voluntary liquidation and iu reconstructing the new concern, to be  known as the Golden Crown Mines,  Limited.   The capitalization will be  the���same dollar shares���but only  paid up to ninety-five cents, thus  allowing an assessment of five cents  per share, equivalent to $75,000 to  be raised for working purposes.    A  general meeting required for confirmation of the resolutions passed  tonight will-be held iii Rossland  July 9fcb, when it is ^expected that  all arrangements will be completed  to resume development of the mine  about August  1st.   - W. A. Fuller  was   appointed    liquidator.      The  mine has 6000 feet of -work aud is  developed to q depth of 300. feet.  Among the  principal  shareholders  present were: Hon. T. Mayne Daly,  K. C, president, Rossland-;   Walter  L. Orde, secretary, Rossland;   G. R.  Caldwell/  K.C,    Brandon,    Man.;  John Inglis, Brandon; W. J. Porter,  Phoenix;  and George II. Collins,  J.  A: Russell and   W.   A. Puller of  " Greenwood.  her affections and became the wife  of another. Her husband started  for Nelson the other day and she  followed along on Wednesday. According to the story which the  woman told constable Ileabener,  her husband mot her in this city  and took her to a .hotel. Her suspicious were soon aroused, h&wever,  as her husband's trunk was not at  the hotel at, which she was stopping. Tho husband offered some  excuse for this, however, and the  couple retired. Soon'after the husband made some excuse and quit  the room. After waiting some time  for his return the ,-woman started  out in search of him . and enlisted  the assistance of constable Ileabener. He in turn reported the case  to sergeant Hardy. The missing  trunk was located on the city  wharf, and some further inquiry  satisfied the police that the owner  of the trunk had taken passage on  the steamer, and was at the time  asleep on board.  A plan of campaign was quickly  decided upon, and a few minutes  before the steamer was due to sail  the anxious wife was taken on  board by the police and cautioned  against awakening her spouse until  the boat sailed. Here the interest  of the police in the case ceased, but  it i9 by no means certain that it  was devoid of further complications. Just what would happen  should it develop that the man  asleep on board was neither the  owner of the trunk nor the woman's  missing husband the police appear  to have entirely overlooked, but in  this event it is not improbable that  the city will receive another visit  from the woman in the case.

Finance minister Turner left this  afternoon for Toronto. Discussing  the question of salmon fisheries  control this morning Mr. Turner  said he had not been strongly in  favor of provincial control, and as  a canner did not agree with it altogether. The latest telegrams received by the government at Victoria from Ottawa were that the  Dominion would this year collect  all revenue and then give the province its proportion, the matter in  later years beiug settled by a  friendly suit in the courts or arbitration.

There were similar temperatures in parts of France and  Italy, while snow was common in  Austria and Hungary. The weather  has had the worst effect on crops  everywhere. It is stated that the  wheat crops in Frauce have been  ruined. The almost unbroken  drought in England during the  month has destroyed the hay crop  and seriously checked others.

Rosslanii, June 20.���A strike of  considerable importance has  been  made on the Blue Bird mine, which  is operated by the Montana Mining  Compwy.  Tlie property is situated  on lower Arrow Lake, about four  miles frotn Deer Park.   A,few days  since on the 100-foot level the main  ledge was encountered and crosscut  for six feet.   ^Chen there was an inrush   of   water,  which  drove "the  miners from the workings, although  the ledge had not yet been fully  crosscut.-    Assays   show that the  ore goesabout $35 to the ton, but a  picked sample weutas high as$500.  William Lambert,   the   secretary-  treasurer of the company, has purchased a  40-horse-power boiler, a  25-horse-power hoist and a No. 5  Knowles     sinking     pump.       The  workings will be uuwatered as soon  as the plant is installed and the development   will   be   pushed   on a  larger scale than ever,  to tlie end  that shipments may be commenced  at   the earliest   possible   moment.

Toronto, June 20."��� The striking  trackmen here have been much put.  out all day over,what .they call the '  unbrotherly conduct of the Toronto  labor unions in not attending " Mr.  Wilson's meeting last night. . Only  two labor men, outside'the strikers  themselves, put in an appearance,  and one ot these, Mr. Armstrong,  former president of the typograph- z  ical union, bluntly told-the strikers  that the public could not compre-- .  bend their position, and that in  trad03 union circles it would be  deemed absurd for men "to abandon  the employment of the ,C* P.,  that has all along been paying the highest rate of wages, in  the hope of compelling it to  make a further increase,, while at  the same time remaining at work  for the Grand Trunk and Intercolonial,-which pays low rates. Mr.  Wilson takes the ground that the  question of wages on the Intercolonial and Grand Trunk has nothing  to do with the matter, that the lowest C. P. R. wage of $1.20 ought to  bo increased to $1.50. Inquiry today amongst the "various trades  unions leaders shows that they are  unanimous in upholding Mr. Armstrong's view aud in combating  Mr. Wilson's. The rule with unions  is to insist on.uniformity, of wages,  and-no case is known in Canada, at  any rate, in which an employer  paying a higher rate than other  employers in the same line of business has been subjected to"a strike  for a further advance, whilst the  employers paying less have been  let alone. To adopt the principle  which Mr. Wilson has foisted on  the trackmen, would, says a Toronto labor leader, soon bring organized labor into contempt.  Did'nt Pay the Printer.  Hamilton, Out., June 20.���The  Times Publishing Company has  taken action against senator Wood  and Teetzel, K.C, both candidates  at the last general elections for  Hamilton, for $785.15, the amount  of their account for printing. The  suit appears to have arisen out of a  dispute between senator Wood and  Mr. Teetzel, the latter claiming that  Wood was to have paid all expenses  of the election.  %   v..-M?"|  ���;j|'��*3l  rm  o '/-���'���SSsI  -, "-^eSP  ���'"- iZM  ��    jSr-'a-F  *~*"*!l  "- *   .

F.   Green,  Jolin  Keen,  ' and Goorgo T. Jvine.    There aro six  ' newspapers published in the riding,  n\mely,  The  Drill  at  Slur-air,  the  Silvertonian at Silverton, the Lsdgo  at New Denver, the Paystreak and  the Mining Review.at Sandon, and  the    Kootcnaian  at   Kaslo.  -   The  Silver Ionian,   arid    tho    Paystreak  , backed "Bob" Green for the winner;  the L'dgc and Mining Review bet  their .pile on John  Keen;   and  the  Drill Mud Kootenaian. stood on tho  fence.   Green won, and, very naturally, any patronage in  the  wny of  government    advertising   thafc   he  contr-i-ld is given to the "newspapers  that supported him.    Thi-* is not at  all to the liking of the Ledge and  the Mining  llnview.     The  former  kick-, and the litter whines.

From 1892 until ..1S0S Tni3 Trii;uni*  .- received no patronage to speak of  from the government' iu power, yet  it was tho only paper printed in  Kootenay thafc had a general circulation for the greater part of the  timo. It did nofc ask for patronage  from the government, and did not  expect to receivo any. Ifc did net  kick or wliino because the government.-aw fit tu give patronage to  newsp;��p''rs on whicli they could  depend for nipport. Ifc simply did  iLs bo.��fc to tin n the government in  power out and3 get iis f 1 lends in.  In tini"', it succeeded. It is now  growing fat on government pap,  and home day .its. owner.-1 will get  something be.-ides "Irish dividends."  Practical politics is merely business  reduced to an exact science.  A'V the ses-sioii of the legi.-hiture  held iu the. summer of 1900 an  appropiiation of $1500 was made  for a government office building to  be luc.ited afc some place in Goat  River* mining division. The government- agent afc Nelson was instructed to look the ground over  and r-jeoinnv-nd the most suitable  place. II1-: did so, and recommended  thafc the building be erected at  Creston. For doing so, he was  slated in one newspaper and his  motivi-s were questioned. A petition signed by .runny who wero not  residents of the division asked that  the building bo not erected at Creston, bub at Kuskonook. Tho government agent, however, was instructed to call for tenders for the  ejection of tlio building at Creston,  bufc the one tender received was  $200 higher than the sum appropriated, and the department' of  public works could nofc see its way  clear to authorize the work to bo  done. This all occurred-last "fall.  Nine days now remain for the woik  to be-authorized;* but ifc is not  likely that the chief commissioner  of lands and works can spare sufficient .time from his social duties,  such as attending banquets and  other functions, to look into the  matter. Anyway, the work is not  in the riding represented by. the  honorable the chief commissioner  of lauds and work?, and he knows  so little of the wants of auy other  riding in Kootenay..  in no way concerns either the carpenters or the miners, but does  concern the business men of Nelson,  and tends to. retard the general  prosperity of the town, where are  the carpenters and tho miners to be  found. If reports in circulation  are true, they are nob helping the  men who helped them in their hour  of need. '  An issue has been raised iu Nelson and it must be met. The  clerks' union, with, it is said, the  assistance of two or three of the  other unions, have taken it upon  themselves to say wheu the merchants of Nelson shall do busiuess.  Many of the merchants will not,  under any circumstances, submit to  any such interference, aud are  ready to meet the.issue. The merchants who are resisting this unreasonable interference with their  rights have right on their side and  they willwin.  Discussed Tariff Matters.  Washington", June 20.���The  Russian ambassador, count Cassini,  had a conference of about half an  hour with secretary Hay today,  during which the tariff questions  were discussed quite fully. The  conference did not, however, lead  to any development in the matter.  It is understood, however, that it  resulted in renewed assurance from  the ambassador that Russia's action  was entirely devoid of political importance and was in no way connected with a general movement in  Europe antagonistic to American  products. The Italian charge  d'alfairep, M. Caraginiani, also had  a talk wifch secretary Has*-.  AUCTION  OF VALUABLE REi*\L PROPERTY,  PLANT, STEAM TUG, BAR.GE, MATERIAL AND FIXTURES.  Some of the unions are going to  extremes.   Recently a clerks' union  was organized in Nelson, and  the  ^emaiid_w_s_irironce~rnTOe^t1Wt=tlre=  merchants of the town  close their  doors at 12 o'clock noon on .-Thursday, and keep .them  closed  the remainder of the day.     This demand  was   not  acceded  to  by the merchants who believe that they alone  have the right to manage their own  business    a (fairs,   and   the   clerks  have, it is said, enlisted the services  of   the carpenters'  union  and the  miners' union to coerce tho  recalcitrant   merchants.     Suppose these  methods Avere carried  to  a  finalfcy  ou Fuch line.-1.    Were the merchants  to trse their influence with contractors and miue owners, and induce  them to suspend all work on Thursday afternoons, the wages of every  carpenter   and   miner  working  iu  Nolson  district  would  be  $1.75  a  week less than what they now receive.      Suppose, further, that this  reduction of earnings was brought  about   iu  other trades  employing  union labor-, the direct loss to wage-  earners in  Nelson  would  be many  hundreds of   dollars   every   week.  All these things should  be considered before tho unions take  action  on a question with which they have  no right, in any way, to  interfere.

Alfred Bunker has decided to abandon  his farming for the summer and try  his hand at prospecting. He will leave  in a few days for the Lardeau.  The cash donations to the celebration  fund were swelled yesterday by a subscription to the Mansfield Manufuctur-  de Bailliencoui-t $25, and A. Booth ?6.  ' The Lake of the Woods Milling Company, through Fred Starkey has offered to donate five barrels of their celebrated flour to be given as a prize in  connection. with the Dominion Day  sports.  The sale of the Archibald furniture  and effects will take place on Wednesday next, at 2 o'clock in the afternoon.  Messrs. Charles A. Waterman & Co.  have the sale in hand, and their announcement will appear tomorrow.  There will be a Swedish gospel meeting on Sunday forenoon a"_d evening in  Miner's Union hall. The forenoon service will begin at 10:30 o'clock and the  evening services at 8 o'clock. All Scandinavians are cordially invited to attend these services, whicli will be held  by Rev. N. J. Wess'ell.  % H. H.. Playford and E. G. Wilson,  under the firm name of Playford & Wilson, will open as tobacco and cigar merchants in the Madden block, in the store  now occuppietl by the Ontario Powder  .Company, as soon as that company vacates. Both gentlemen are well known  and they should be successful.  It was reported in Nelson yesterday  that the contractors for the British Columbia Southern, and the road from  Grand Forks to Republic had been let.  Guthrie & Company'of St. Paul are said  to have received the contract for the  flrst work, and Syms & Company, also  of St. Paul, the contract for the Grand  Forks **oad.  The executive of the celebration com-  mittre met yesterday afternoon and  reade good headway in arranging the official program.. The details will all be in  shape today, so that the work c-xn be  given into the hands of the printer .on.  Monday. The fund is now about ?34''0  in cash, with some thirty odd articles  of value for special prizes.  The Granite mill is still running on  Poorman, and it is thought that there  is still enough ore on hand "to keep the  mill, going for another week at least.  The accident to the compressor, which  occasioned the shut down at the Poor-  man, is fully as serious as was feared,  and it is not likely that work will be resumed on the property for several  .weeks as the management does not feel  justified in carrying on development  without the machine drills.  A number of fresh young men dipped  a Chinaman in the lake yesterday afternoon. The Chinaman has lodged a  complaint with the.police and the matter will probably be ventilated in the  police court tomorrow. The trouble was  the outcome of some horse '.'lay in  which the young men were amusing  themselves at the expense of the  "chink," and upon his resenting the  liberties taken with him he was dipped  ih the lake.  B. Mansfield of the Mansfield Manufacturing Company is exhibiting an  interesting curio in the shape of a piece  of old Roman brick taken from the bath  at Bath, England, which it is alleged  was built in the time of Claudius Caesar, A. D. 93. The curio, whicli is well  or, to 2000 years, more closely resembles  a tile than a. brick, being less than an  inch in thickness, but it bears evi-lon/'.e  that the modern brick makers have not  much. <!.dv;inlage to 1-oin.t of over their  ancient rivals.  There was no general observance of  the strike order among the local trackmen yesterday, although it was announced on Wednesday evening that all  the trackmen would quit on the following.morning. So far as know a the only  men who have, -.-one out are two on the  Slocan branch, and the crew at the junction.1 It was reported on Wednesday evening that all hands were at the time  working on the Crow's Nest division,  between Medicine Hat and the Landing,  and nothing'later has been received. On  ihe Kootenay branches past, of tl>f* Columbia everything was reported to be  going ahead as usual.  The fancy dress ball which has been  decided upon by the carnival committee  in connection with the Dominion Day  celebration may now be regarded as an  assured success,a sufficient number having expressed their intention of participating to make the ball a very attractive feature of the carnival. While the  barge is in midstream it will be used  by the judge in viewing the carnival  procession, so that the dancers -will  have the best possible viewv of the  boats as they move around. After the  judges have made their awards the  barge, will be towed baCK to the city  wharf, so that the dancers may leave  it at their pleasure. An admission fee  of $1 per couple will be charged, and  no one. will be allowed on the barge  who is not in fancy dress costume. A  full orchestra will furnish music for  the dancers.  uty grand master, and the following  were elected as "officers: John Toye.  master; J, Smith, Rossland, 'deputy  ?naster; Rev. J. B. Morgan, chaplain;  D. McVannel. Slocan, financial secretary; D. J. Robertson, treasurer; F.  Rutherford, Rossland, director of ceremonies; and Thomas Lake, Slocan, lecturer. The.local lodges of Nelson, Rossland, Sandon and Slocan were well represented. The next meeting of the district lodge will be held at Rossland at a  date to be fixed. The next meeting of  tho grand lodge of the province will be  hild in this city in February next.  HAVE BROKE AWAY FROM  The Thursday Closing Movement.  The Thursday Closing Movement was  sprung on the merchants of Nelson  without consideration, and is not at all  popular with' any class except half a  dozen clerks, who claim that their duties  are so irksome that they must have recreation during the middle of the week.  Yesterday all the hardware dealers  broke away from the movement, and  the only houses closed were some of  those dealing in dry goods, clothing,  groceries and jewelry. Even some of  those who had their front doors closed  were induced to sell goods by way of  their back entrances. When the dealers  who close express an opinion, it is gen-'  orally in the following words: "I know  tne .movement is not doing the town  any good, but I signed the agreement  without due, consideration, and I will  not be the first to break it. Anyway, I  do not wish.to incur the enmity of the  unions, as they say they are all powerful in Nelson."  TELEPHONE 87  EL    .BT2r_B3_BS" <Sc  CO.  PAINTS, OILS 4ND GLASS.  GARDEN  TOOLS.

HARRY PARKER IN THE JUC  s  Is Charged With Forgery.  Harry McDdugall,  iilias Parker, has  beer, arrested in Spokane-upon a charge  cf forgery.  .Accord', g tc tne Spokane  police Parker  took a note ��'rav*a for  $St]j5, payable to H\*nnx:i Pctoon 'or  order, and  signed  b-* 'reorg-j E.  Rur-  uett, to a Spokane sal ������ ��*i l:<?i��i��r ah>l  got $5  on  it.    Later Parker returned  asked for another dollaro���     a,s   bmb  and asked for another dollar, when he  was   asked  to  endorse the   note,   and  thereupon wrote Herman   Peterson on  the back. The police say-the same man  passorl checks in Spokane some months  ago under the name of Parker.   '  * -The  man  under  arrest  in  Spokane  operated in. Nelson under the name of  Harry Parker.  'He arrived in the city  from    Ainsworth, - and    negotiated    a  check   with    George  Bartlett.   of. the  Clarice hotel, for f��4, which upon neinir  presented.'at "the bank was pronounced  a forgery. " This check was made payable to H. Parker .and Maxwell Steven-'  son's name appeared on it as the maker.  Some time,  however, elapsed between  the,.negotiating of ihe check  and  Its  presentation at the bank, so that when  the local'police so.ught tb gfcther Par-ker  in he had decicrpcd.   A warrant is out  for. his arrest, and if he slips through  the hands of the Spokane police he will  be brought back to Nelson..        "  The Nelson police are also confident  that Parker hrid a hand in the .iraking  of the series of forged checks which  were put in circulation some months  ago, upon which the signatures .of J.  Honeyman, of the Nelson foundry, was  so freely used, but they were in the  dark until after the forged check was  passed on Bartlett.  jsrBLso]5r  STORES   AT  _E_Z-A.SJLO  S-AJsriDoiisr  A Seasonable Proposal.  H. Byers & CoM the Lawrence Hardware Company and McLachlan Bros.,  dealers in hardware and mining supplies, have decided that they will not  close their stores on Thursday afternoons. InBtead of closing on Thursdays, they have agreed to close on Saturday afternoons from 12 to 7, and reopen at 7 and remain open until 10  o'clock."' This action of the three leading hardware firms is fair notice that  they will not be coerced.into doing some  thing that they know is injuring the  business interests of the town; but, at  the same time, it "shows that they are  willing to give their employees a half  holiday on the day that is now generally recognized as the one best suited  for that purpose.. Were the dry good  and grocery stores to follow the lead of  the hardware dealers,'.a foolish movement would be dead, and overworked  clerks would still get their half holiday.  v.  PERSONAL.  W. F.
