 \i  ax^rraasaagsssiJjaxiu  i._.  nnz  ESTABLISHED  1892  THURSDAY MORNING,  DECEMBER  12;   1901  DAILY EDITION  WELL RENDERED  "CHIMES OF NORMANDY"  LAST NIGHT.  THE   POPULAR   OPERA    IN   THE  HANDS   OP    CAPABLE  LOOAL TALENT.  been pronounced by experts to be one of  the biggest lead showings on the continent.  The Terpsichore Club will hold its regular weekly dance tonight (December 12th)  in Fraternity hall.  Th.-' ton men itcruited in this city on  Tuesday for the Canadian Mounted In-  <"artrv fnr service in South Africa left for  Halifax this morning on the Crow's Nest  boat. Thvy were in charge of Tom Dunn,  who   served   with  the  Strathconas.  P. J. Nichols is now working a crew of  20 men on the Fern mine. It is said that  ^he has the property now in such a shape  that ho can make it pav for its own development and leave a respectable profit margin   besides.  A crowded house greeted the members of  the Nelson Operatic Society at the opera  house last evening on the occasion of their  first production of the "Chimes of Normandy." That the production was a success is putting it mildly. To begin with  the piece was very well staged, the orchestra -ft as well up ^to tho standard, and  from the start the piece went off with a  swing which was a credit to the members  of the society as well to Herr Steiner, who  had the direction of the opera in hand.  The characters in the caste were remarkably well sustained. Of the ladles in  it the bulk of the work naturally fell to  Mrs. Melville Parry, as Germaine, and  Mrs. AV. A. Macdonald, as Serpolette, and  in their acting as well as in thoir singing  both ladies won unstinted applause. - Of the  gentlemen it would bo hard to make comparisons. Each appeared to be espeeiallv  fitted for tho part assigned to him. "E.  Criddle made a capital "Baillie," and made  tlie most of his part. In fact there were  several local touches given to his linos  which freshened them ui> and added to  thoir appreciation. R Thomson made his  first appearance in opera. lie had the  very important role of Henri, tho marquis  of Cornevillc, and made a very favorable  Impression. Mr. Thomson is possessed of  an excellent baritone voice, and when ho  acquires a little more case on the stage  will be hard to beat. C. B. AVintcr added  to his laurels as an actor. He had the  part of Gaspard, the miser, and gave a  very careful portrayal of that rather difficult character. Singing is not Mr. Winter's  forte, but'in the sudden death business he  can give the divine Sarah Bernhardt pointers K. AV. Day had the part of Jean  Grenlchcux. His singing was good -and  he succeeded ir. getting more fun out of the  the dialogue than the author of thc piece  dreamed of. This occurred in his dialogue  with the miser, whon Mr. Day's brogu.  came out strong and" added greatly to  the eniovnont of the audience, who had  groat di'liculty in reconciling the voice lo  the character, set down in tho part. This  cannot be rcgaided as a fault, and it is not  unlikely that-thc mirthful possibilities ft||*Lj'.-**n1p  combination-wore duly estimated when  AVere the city In an independent position  for power, inducements could be offered  merchants to make displays in the way  of electrical signs and show-window lighting. All such displays advertise a town as  well as those who make the displays. Vote  FOR By-law No. 102, and placo Nelson In  the front rank of cities in the province.  Tho funeral of the late-Mrs. P. E. Emir-  son will take place on Friday afternoon at  2 o'olock from Mr. Emerson's residence,  corner of Silica and Kootenay streets. All  Odd Fellows whether members of the local  lodge or sojourning brethren, are lequested  to attend the funeral and be at the lodge  room in Fraternity ball at 1:30 o'clock  sharp.  . ^ The skating rink at .the corner of Stanley nnd Houston streets is likely to be so  that cur'ing can take place by the end of  the week. One sheet Is said to be in fairly  good condition now. All members of the  Curling Club who want to take part in con-  rests shoufd apply to cither AAr. W. Beer  or Frank Tamblyn, so skips can be selected and rinks formed.  By Mondav all departments of The Tribune will bo iu running order, and within a  week afterwards Nolson will have the best  appointed printing and book-binding establishment between AVinnipeg and Vancouver,  and if only Thomas Cottreli Collins can  keep up his lick. The Tribune will have a  larger circulation than any other daily  newspaper printed in British Columbia.  'John Dow of Creston. who has been in the  citv for the past few days, returned home  this morning. He says the people of Creston are verv anxious to secure increased  school accommodations, as there are now  over thirty pupils crowded into on�� little  room. The lots for the building have been  secured from tho townsite owners and it  is now up to thc education?.! department  fo carrv out its portion of the arrangement  iiv building the school house.  ih  the cast was' made up.  Ably as the characters in the piece wore  sustained it is safe to say that  the ch'-.ruaos were the most enjoyed portion  of the evening's entertainment. They were  well balanced and were carried through  without the semblance of^.a drag. In the  course of the evening a couple of very enjoyable specialties were Introduced. This,  was a quakcrcss nuartett, in which Mes-r  dairies Davys, Armstrong, Goepel, and  T-Toathoote appeared, and the second was a  plea .pnt dance by Mesdames Applcthwaite  and Otis, and Misses L.

Cfalliher, M.P., returned from  Rossland last night, where he was in attendance upon the sessions of the supreme  court."  W. J. Beaven picked up a pair of opera  glasses at the opera house last evening.  Tho'owner nan have the same by identifying them.  It is expected that tho vein in the Ymir  mine will be struck in the long tunnel  within the course of the next two or three  months. This tunnel is now being advanced  at. the rate of about 100 feet per month.  The wagon road from Port Hill to the  Continental mine has been completed. The  property is near the international boundary line, about twenty miles from Port  Hill. It has been under development for  the past six years and is now in a position  10 ship. As soon as the necessary quarters  can be run up at the mine a large force of  ���men will be put to work. The property is  owned by Messrs. Klockman of Rossland  and Roberts and Bailey of Duluth. Jt bas  carpenters', union neld tlieir regular  mpting last night and elected the following-  named officers for the ensuing term: John  Burns, senior president; .Tames Calling,  vice-president; AA'illiam Raynnrd, recording  rocrctarv; George Flemming. treasurer;  Jnsonh Arounsr, conductor; T. L. Marquis,  A. T/ickev, John Burns, junior, and A.  Murtv. auditors; A. Lackey, John Burns,  senior, and Ernest Kilby, delegates to the  Trades and T,abor Council.  A number o"f the friends of E. S. Tuck  wore at the citv wharf last evening for  the purpose of bidding him good bve upon  iho occasion of his leaving for the front  with the Canadian Mounted Infantry. Mr.  Tuck, who is '.he son of sheriff Tuck, has  be^n a res-dent of Nelson for the past two  years, during which period he formed  imnv friendships. He took an Interest in  ~athIotics"ri-n"rt���was-a-general-favorite~wIth-  most of those with whom he came In contact.  Commercial mon who have returned from  Rossland say that the .merchants of that  citv complain that business is but little  better now that the mines have resumed  work than they were during the lookout.  None of the married men emnloyed in the  mines have their-families with them and  the result is that all of'the men's earnings  is sent directly nut of the country. AArith  resnoct to the single men*it. is said they  make as few trips to the city stores as  they can and buy only such articles as  they are obliged to.  The Ymir Mines has placed an order with  AAr. F. Teetzel K-. Co. for n carload of cyanide of potash. The order amounts to nearly  ���JfiOOO, and was placed with the Nelson firm  because their quotation was as low as New  York ahd London dealers. AAr. F. Teetzel  .t Co. is the only firm in British Columbia,  if not the only firm in Canada, that can*  fill any sized order for assay, and mill  supplies from stocks on hand. The order  for a carload of cyanide of potash must  mean that someone has faith in the mines  of British Columbia.  John M. Harris of Sandon returned from  Rossland yesterday. He is one of the largest stockholders in the Slocan Mining  Company, the owners of the Rabbit Paw  nnd other'mineral, claims adjoining the Slocan Star group owned by the Byron N.  White Company. These two companies are  now ia litigation over the apex question  and an order will be made by chief justice  McColl today for the examination by tho  Slocan Mining Company of the workings  of the Byron N. White Company on the  Slocan Star group. With respect to the  story published in the Spokane papers to  the effect that the Byron N. AA'hite Company was also a heavy stockholder ln the  Slocan Mining Company, Mr. Harris said  it was not unlikely, as the Slocan Mining  Company was stocked for $1,000,000, .of  which all but 100,000 shares hod ben issued,  and. the stock was floating around very  cheap, so that It would not take very much  money to get. a considerable slice of it.  AVilliam Duncan has returned from the  Summlt-Ymir property, on which he has  been driving a crosscut to determine the  size of the ledge which was struck on the  proporty some time ago. In the work done  formerly a drift was run along the hanging wall on a body- of quartz, but no effort  was made to further explore the ledge.  The'work done under thu Duncan contract  has shown the ledge to be 23 feet wide at  the point of the crosscut, but in the middle  of it there occurs a horse some 13 feet  wide. When this horse was passed through  a body of nuartz was struck on the footwall. This appears to be about five feet  wide and contains some nice looking rock.  Assays have not yet been made upon it,  but as it carries considerable iron ore it is  thought that it will run higher than thc  quartz opened up on the hanging Avail,  which did not average more than $3 or $4  to the ton ln free gold values. AVhen the  assays are received from the rock taken  from the foot wall a meeting of the company will be held to determine upon future  work.  BURSTS OF SPEED  MADE BY THE CYCLERS IN  THE SIX-DAY RACE.  THOUSANDS  GATHER AT   MADI-  .    SON SQUARE TO WITNESS  THE CONTEST.  wedding dower of $50,000, which was to be  return->d to him in tlie form of stock in the  Zlon I-ifit.-o industries, rho plaintiff said  it was his belief that he was Dowie's copartner, and that Dowie by fraud had se-  ciirc-d hi j name to the papers giving Dowie  all rights in tho company. Stevenson  chirged thtt Dowie on the night of August  Sth, 190], changed the papers on him when  he supposed he was signing joint partnership agivnients.

VICTORIA, December 11.���News is given  ln advices from Japan of the destruction of  (he Or ental hotel at Yokohama. The Oriental v as 'accounted the handsomest hostelry In Japan, but the rapidity with which  it was gutted by the flames without the remotest cha"cc of being saved, clearly  proves that its construction must have  been unsubstantial. The fire occurred in  the early morning and a number of the  guests escaped with.nothing but their pajamas or night clothes. One Japanese  nurse was burned to death.  RESOLUTIONS   CONSIDERED  By Federation of Labor.  SCP.ANTON, Pennsylvania, December 11.  ���Business closely relating to the organization of labor in those fields where there is  no union and strengthening 'of the hands  of those who embraced unionism, took up  most of the time of today's session of the  American Federation of Labor.  Thirty odd resolutions were considered,  upon eight of which final action was taken.  All the other propositions were either sent  back to committees or referred to'the incoming executive committee appointed to  consider the subject. The committee Avas  named at the morning session and all resolutions and other .documents relating to  trade autonomy were referred to it. The  committee will make a report probably.

Terra  Cotta Work^s' Alliance or have their  charters revoked by the federation; recommending that the federation make an effort  during the coming year to organize the  .-chool teachers 'of this country; authorizing the federation to send deputies to  national and international organizations;  particularIy"those of railway employees;  indorsing the label of the- International  AVood Carvers' Association and instructing  thc executive committee to use every effort  to secure the passage of a national law  protecting and legalizing itself.  The reading of the papers of the executive council took up more than an hour  of the convention's time. The report was  sent to committee for consideration. An  adjournment had to be taken early in the  afternoon session to enable the committee  te consider business which will come bofore the convention later.  A Rival of Morgan's.

NEAV YORK, December 11.���Eight thousand people at-Madison Square Garden tonight saw Wiltiiour, fresh from a two  hours' rest, try to steal a lap on ihe other  riders in the six-day bike race. He was unsuccessful, but worked the crowd up to a  pitch of great excitement. For a time it  appeared that the Atlanta rider would gain  the coveted lap. For three miles he kept  the terrific pace, a speed that was said  by veterans in the six-day work to be remarkable. The racers were spread all  round the track. Fredericks and Julius  were passed In the order named by the  flying southerner, who was relieved by  "Archie" McEachran, the latter following  up the advantage gained by his mate.  Aftor an exciting chase of a mile, McEachran let up tho pace, but Fischer kept  it hot Changes came every few minutes.  AA'hen the men rinally settled down to a  slow pace, the tail enders had lost a lap.  McEachran, Samuelson, Julius and Fredericks had been lapped. Hud McEachran,  kept tip tho "pace sot by his partner, ths  team would have been a lap to the good.  At this time, soon after 8 o'clook. tho men  wero 15 miles behind the record and were  riding about 19 miles an hour.  Shortly before midnight Butler went on  the track to relieve McLean. He spurted  ahead and gained about a lap, McEach:  ran's saddle broke and AValthour was dragged from a sound sleep to relieve his mate.  Half asleep Walthour struggled on to the  track amid the wildest excitement on the  part of the racers. Although Butler was  out to relieve McLean, the latter had not'  dismounted and was sprinting, wildly  around the oval. AValthour did not know  whom to follow, the mon being strung  clear around the oval. Reliefs came and  went and at times both team mates of a  team would be riding. McLean and Butler,  both riding a terrific pace, finally succeeded in gaining a lap. Then Butler left the  track. ,Jn an Instant there was a crowd  around the referee protesting against allowance of the lap gained by McLean and  Butler. Thc lap was not allowed on'the  ground that neither man dismounted while  they made the gain. ,..  At 1 a. m.

A'lCTORIA. December 11.���Two Avrits  were today served on thc Victoria representative of the British-Yukon Company,  otherwise the AVhito Pass and Yukon route,  each claiming $200,000 from the company  on the ground lhat the rates on their  railroad had been approved by the Dominion government as required by the Dominion Railway Act. These are the actions  which it was said in these dispatches a  few days ago would be brought. The claimants are tho Upper Yukon Consolidated  Company and John Clearihue, both large  shippers to points in thc Yukon. They ask  tho return of freight rates and passenger  fares paid the company and damages, relying on the claim that the' rates pf the  company were not approved, and on section 209 of the Canadian Railway Act.  which reads: "Every person from wnom  any company exacts any unjust or extortionate toll, rate or charge, shall, in addition to the amount so unjustly exacted,  be entitled to recover from the company as  damages an amount equal to three times  rhe amount so unjustly exacted."  These are but test cases and If the claimants are successful actions involving millions of.dollars will be commenced against  the company, the representatives of which  arc in Ottawa at present in connection  with the refusal of the Dominion government to approve the tariff submitted by  the company. Messrs. Iliggins & Elliott  are acting for both claimants. As stated  tho othor day, they will contend that fhe  rates were exorbitant, averaging about 20  cents per mile, and that those taking the  actions incurred serious loss through the  compnay allowing secret rebates to competitors.  Who Will Take Their Place?  The Boers are gone. This is an awful  fact, hut it is true. Many thousands of  them arc dead many thousands have been  sent into exile, many thousands of women  and children are prisoners in the hands  of their enemies, llvng m guarded sluck-  -ade=-in-Nalal-and-Gape-Golony.���Phe-Boers  havo been swept out of the country they  have made. Three years ago seventy thousand Boer farmers were livins; on the  Transvaal plateau tending their herds of  cattle. Theie humble farm houses, the outbuildings in wliich their hired black labor  lived, the hamlets here and there containing the chapels in which the Boors gathered for worship, relieved the monotony  of.the fiat plains. They are now either ten-  a.ntless, save as wild beasts invade them,  or have been leveled to the ground by the  torch nppl'.ed by the British soldiers. Desolation roigns everywhere supreme, showing even more direful in the towns than  in the country. Not only the Boor republics, but the men, women, and children who  marie them have been wiped out. If thoy  have not actually been killed or died,'they  have heen carried far away from their  country.  Vancouver Local News-  VANC01.IArER, December 11.���[Special to  Tho.

All  these properties are managed by practical  mining men, and are all being operated  successfully.

Frequent changes of  laws tend toward instability. Had mining  companies, like the Le Roi, been honest in  making returns to tho government, the  chances are the mineral tax would have  remained as It was, that Is, one per cent.  There arc Issues on which the people of  Nelson  are divided.  The issues are clean-  cut  and   on   questions  in  which   economic  principles' are Involved. Wishy-washy declarations that "the people should drop their  differences  'arid    pull   together"   will   not  cause the people to unite. One element in  Nelson favors municipal ownership of public utilities;  the other element Is opposed  to  the municipality ow'nivg anything that  could  be operated  by private capital.  One  element want., to keep Nelson to the front;  the other clement wants  to wait and  see  what Is going to turn up.  One element Is  progressive;   the   other   element   will   not  spend a dollar, in, public Improvements. One  clement     believes     in     the     town     they  helped : to" make;  the  other element cares  nothin  for'the  town  except as a temporary abiding piaee. ,One element. If given a  free hand, will attempt to make Nelson the.  chief city .east of the Coast; the other element.  If given  a  free  hand,  would  make  the city dependent .on:corporatlons like the  "West" Kootenay Power & Light Company.  The issues, are such that there can be no  oomrromlse , between   the   two   elements.  The issues are'not .of men,  but of prin-,,  clples.  Tho  next  mayor  and  aldermen  of  Nelson  must  be  irieii  who  will  adhere, to  principle, and not fail down before a corporation.. Mayor   Fischer   and.'. alderman  Selous have.been/trie'd.and both have been  found  wanting.   They  both belong to  the  element   that   Is  opposed   to  ownership .of  public utilities and to progress." The other  element will have nothing to do with.'either  of them.   The   progressive   element,   want  men who believe in progress, and who believe that municipal ownership of a power  plant on Kootenay river will he a step In  that direction. The fight is on, and the lines  are as clearly denned as they are In a- Dominion election.  Colonel Hue-lies and the Boers.  The following letter, signed "Verax,"  comes to tl'.e Toronto Globe from Brockville:  As. an old Canadian militiaman,' I take  pleasure in sending you a bit of Boer history, by the way of showing to what extent the Boers fear lieutenant-colonel Sam  Hughes. Tho Boors in times of infinite distress chant what they call the Dirge of  Death. It has been chanted but once during the present war, and this was on the  occasion of colonel Hughes' approach to  Sprcekelfontein. He had a force of only  forty men, but they were mounted men,  armed with Lee carbines,' and bore a banner with the device, "Tho Old Flag, the  Old Man * and the Old Policy," on the  -Strength���of_which,_ as^_you-know,-eolonel--  Hughcs has been returned to parliament  since 18S2. On hearing of the approach of  these warriors ���this small but intrepid  band���Dewet summoned the Boers lo the  top of a neighboring kopje and the Dirge  was sung, amid much lamentation. Here  is a rather free translation  "We've spilled much British blood,  But Sam will soon arrive.  With him we cannot strive.  O Lord, our name Is mud!"  Then  thoy fled.    When   he   had  running   from   sheer   exhaustion.  CJibled to Roosvolt:  "Sim Is hot-font after me. Now is thc  time for the United States to Intervene.  Remember. Teddy, if he son-of-a-gun  downs me, it will be your blooming turn  noxt."  Just then, through intrigue and jealousy,  colonel Hughes was recalled to Pretoria.  Dewet escaped, and as a consequence the  war has been prolonged to the .present  hour.  Of Center Star Shortcomings.  At tha meeting of tho Center Star Mining  Company recently held in Toronto, T. G.  Blackstock, a director, sought to explain  the failure of the mine to come up to the  s'uiguine anticipations on tlie following  ground, lie said: "The British Columbia  government would have to repeal its existing mining laws, wliich had been passed nt  the instigation of the unions. The Victoria  administration had succeeded in crushing  out the mining industry in British Columbia and in damaging tne province in tho  eyes of 12ngiish capital. Up until now the  miners had taken one portion of the product of lhe mines and the government had  secured the rest for itself. Now thc union  had hen defeated, the government would  have lo came down too, and give the owners of mines a chance to make thc mines  pay."  H. Mortimer T.nmh, the editor of the  British Columbia Mining Record, replies to  Mr. Blackstock's criticism in' the Victoria  Colonist.    TTe says:  Thero is an ancient proverb wliich has  reference to the bad workman who finds  fault with the tools. Tt 1S1 not an inappropriate parallel in its present application.  What, some mine owners or directors of  mining companies would do if there were  no government to blame when matters go  wrong is hard to conjecture. If unsuitable  machinery 1? installed at a property and  the results are disastrous, of course It is  the iniquitous system'of .taxation that is  responsible for the non-payment of dividends. If, as in tho case of the Center Star,  shareholders are misled Dy the distribution  of a dividend out of capital when the mine  vra" heavily involved in debt, so that whon  discovery followed in the natural ordor  share vahies declined, it is the unworkabil-  11 y of a signal code, or the unreasonable  demands nf the miners' union or anything  else you like to mention under the sun  except the truth that is given as thc cause  of tho depreciation.  Yet in spite of the "bad" mining laws  less intrinsically valuable mines than tlie  Center Star have been made to pay in  British Columbia and in these cases nothing is heard of the rottenness of the legislative system, nor do the owners of these  properties ha.vo time seemingly to engage  in  disputes with labor.  Put It to any reasonable man to decide,  which has done most to keep capital from  engaging in mining in the province, the  system of taxation and legislation, which  though not perfect compares favorably  with that of other British possessions  where mining Is an industry, or a Mining  Association that could publish broadcast  such n document as the so-called and uncalled-for "memorial" of a month or two  arro?  7s not present apathy, or lack of confidence when it exists, due rather lo the  methods employed in the past by both the  Eastern Canadian and British promoting  fraternity, or for failures since for which  cases ignorance or hopelessly idiotic management are responsible? If Mr. Black-  stock would take time to consider he would  at least modify tho vlews^attributcd to him  hi the paragraph, though then it would be  more difficult to find a really plausible explanation if the Center Star slump, wherewith to edify if. not quite satisfy a shareholder's meeting.  ;^_9. **& 0*8* -*V*  -(p'00'00'00  ' 00& r0f& 0*& *^�� ������**��  ' . 00' 00 ' 00 '00 '00  to    00. 00 .00, ��E0 . 0& .00 . 00 .00, 00 , .  g*&^^^^^^^^_yffa^^^aB^55��-j**^^>�� 5^5b��>  ^Mht * ^s^ �� >te���� a ^_K * **���*-_* * ^^ *-^***-k * ^fc, * ^^ * ^kk * ^^ * ^"K * ^**���t * *  tEf'tZE*  ^  m  ON THURSDAY OF  THIS WEEK WE WILL  SELL THE BALANCE  OF OUR STOCK OF  LADIES' MANTLES AND COSTUMES  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  AND CHILDREN'S COATS AT HALF PRICE   $  ��� to  to  to  to WE WILL ALSO SHOW EXCEPTIONAL BARGAINS IN LADIES' FLANELETTE-WEAR to  to to  to GOODS   AND   PRICES  TO SUIT ALL /f\  to  to  to  to  36 Baker Street, Nelson.  ;_____ _ti^  fiW ��� fi& * 030 m 0K0 *j& ��� 0f* *0ti& ��� 0BB? ���  STST.SSr.  W  0iv�� **sfrr��sei�� r&&^st�� -^s>-����_�����  ' 0B0 * 00- 0B0 * 00: 0B0  0C0- 00 ��� 00- 0f0,\ 000- 00  J^RCHITECTS^  - A.

The-force and naturalness of  her writing appealed to him strongly; and  it is said that after reading Pembroke he  was convinced that Miss Wilkins possessed  such' a clear understanding of human nature, and a mind cast in such a noble mold  that she became his ideal.  Gustav Kun.t, the rich German merchant  of Samoa who bought "Vailima, the former  homo of Robert Louis Stevenson, and is  now residing -in it, has "planned a uniriuo  gift to tho islanders, and partially in association with the memory of Stevenson.

A street is to bo named after him, and enterprising tradesmen are  selling Santos Dumont neckties, .hats and  other articles of wearing apparel. But a  still greater tost, of his popularity is to  bo seen daily along the .Champs Elysees.  A story exists that the president once asked  an official: "Am T really popular?" to  which he received thc reply: "Not yet, sir,  your figure in gingerbread is not boing sold  no the Champs.

The two senators and une representative  in congress who are openly in favor of unrestricted Chinese immigration make no  attempt to conceal their reasons for opposing the re-enactment of the Geary law.  Senator Clark of Wyoming'does not pretend that ho is solicitous for the welfare of  Chinese students, merchants, and traveler.') Ho says he wants the doors opend to  Chinese farm laborers and household servants. His colleague, senator Warren, says  he docs not care if the Chinese does come  ns a temporary immigrant to get a few  dollars and return with his money. "All  we want," says thc senator, "is the Chinaman's labor, and when ho departs from our  shores another will appear to take his  place." Representative Smith of Michigan  does not pretend that ho objects to the  Geary law because of Its "practical mil-,  lity." He is opposed to it because it does  keep the coolies out, and he wants Chinese  to work in the mines and ih the "various  occupations." These men are honest in  their statements, and, therefore, more to  be respected than the shufflers and cowards who attempt to conceal their subserviency to the interests intriguing for a  supply of cheap labor under the fine  phrases about "fair treatment of China"  and assurances that no great influx of  coolies would follow tno removal of the  barrier. What tho United States needs is  not cheaper labor, but more equitably paid  labor; smaller dividends to the trusts and  larger dividends to the workers; moro citizen.-? and fewer Industrial vagabonds. Tf  the gold or the coal in Wyoming's mines is  not sufficient to pay American minors for  digginbg it out will do no harm to be left  in the ground. Fortunately, the prosident  and an overwhelming majority in congress  understand the Chinese .question in its relations to tho welfare of the working people, and thc conspiracy to kill, tho exclusion law will probably result ln making  the prohibition more strict and permanent.

A meeting of the  curling club will bo held early next week  for thc purpose of drawing rinks and making other arrangements for the season's  p;io!<t.  The regular mooting of the Nelson Roard  of Trade will be held-this evening af~S:30'  o'clock. This will be the last regular meeting prior to the annual meeting, when the  election of officers l'or the ensuing year will  lake place. This election it is hoped will  servo as a stimulus to the members to pay  up their dues and thereby improve the  financial standing of tho organization.  The reserved sent plan for Friday evening's production of the Chimes of Normandy, by tho members of the Nelson Operatic society will open in McDonald's  fruit store on Friday morning at 10 o'clock.  This arrangement with respect to the plan  for Friday evening was made with, a view  to affording those who failed to secure desirable seats for thc first two performances  an opportunity of securing the scats they  desire for Friday evening.  J. D. Moore of the Trail smelter was In  Nelson yesterday. He gave an unqualified  denial to the report that the management  of the smelter contemplated blowing out  its lead stacks for the purpose of making  necessary repairs. Such repairs as' were  under ^consideration affect thc copper  smelting plant, only. He had nothing to  say- as to the changes which may. be expected with the beginning of next year ln  the smelter rates for the treatment of" lead  ores. '_"���-'  .Work on the construction of the Marysville smelter is being rushed as rapidly  as me.n can do it. W. c\ Tierney & Co.,  who have the grading contract for the site  as well as tbe railway spur from the  Marysville siding, have their work well in  hand, and the company has other gangs  of men at work in getting out lumber from  tho company's sawmill, quarrying stone  mid In manufacturing brick, so that when  construction Is actually commenced the  work can be put through with a rush.  T. TS. Stuart of Glasgow passed through  Nelson yesterday on his way to Three  Forks, whore ho will meet Mr. Glntzburger  of the Monitor mine. It is undrstood that  Mr. Stuart is the export of the Glasgow  company which Mr. Glntzburger has succeeded in Interesting in the Kaslo smelter  project. The money for this enterprise has  already been subscribed and it is now up  to thn company's expert to show the Glasgow company in tho first place whether the  project offers sufficient inducement for tho  investment necessary, and being satisfied  upon this point to determine upon the most  advantageous point for the location of the  smelting work?. Although Kaslo is most  frequently mentioned   as   the   prospective  .site for the smelter it is'by no means certain that Kaslo will be decided upon. In  fact it is understood that Kaslo Is but one  ��� of three possible sites, Fivo-mlle point,  near Nelson being one of the other sites  mentioned.  J. Findloy, who has been employed as  foreman on the construction of the,Robson  -bridge-l'or-lhe-Montreal-Bridge-Company,-  expects to complete his work on the.struc-  ture by the 20th iristant. Tt will then be  possible to move trains over it, but it Is not  likely that the structure will open for regular trafiic until about thc first of March.  This involves ,tho completion of the approaches, and as this will be steam shovel  work It Is not likely that it will be completed before the date mentioned.  Two bills of sale were recorded nt the  Nelson record office yesterday. In one  Thomas Bennett transferred an eighth interest in the Galena mineral claim, situate  about three miles southwest of Ymir, and  In tho second G. D. Root transferred to F.  R. Blockberger and U. V. Keech the Moline  minoral claim on the head of Hall creek.  Certificates of work wore Issued to James  Hickey on tho,GIa<_ Hand and Black Bird  mineral claims, ,....*'*.*���  John D. Sullivan of. the C. PR. engineering staff passed through Nelson yesterday on his way to Lardo-to. look over  the work of construction on. the Lardo  branch. Although considerable difficulty  has been experienced, in-holding men on  this work It is the expectation of the contractors to have the. same completed for  traffic parly In the,present'winter- so that  trains can be put over ��t-, and next spring  the finishing touches will be given : to it.  Thero will be considerable ore at the Twin  Falls end of the line awaiting shipment  when the road reaches that point, most of  which, it is understood, will be consigned  to the Trail smelter.  The many friends of Mrs. P. E. Emerson  of this city were shoi__.ee! yesterday to  learn of her death in the Kootenay Lake  Goneral Hospital. Mrs. Emerson was ailing for several weeks past, but her condition was not considered sufficiently serious  to cal! in the assistance of a physician. On  Tuesday afternoon, however, Dr. LaBau  was called in. The patient by this time  was in a semi-unconscious condition from  tho effects of congestion of the brain. She  was removed at once to the hospital, but  everything that medical attendance could  do for hor failed to revive her fully and  death ensued some twenty-three hours  after her entrance into me hospital, which  was shortly after noon yesterday. A husband and four small children survive the  deceased, including a child a little over two  months old. Mr. Emerson has also been ln  very poor health for some time past.  99999999999993999999393999399399^1^999;  ESTABLISHED 1892  Portland Cement  Fire Brick  Fire Clay-  Sheet Iron  T Rails  Ore Cars  Blowers  Exhausters  Pumps  Graniteware  Tinware  HARDWARE AND IRON MERCHANTS  STOVES  STOVES  AND  NELSON, B.
