 ^ ~��U.  iliSu,-  -^,^..  -A..-- %  Saturday Morning, August 30. 1902  BRITISH COLUMBIA HAS NO STRIKES  THE MINING OUTLOOK IS MOST CHEERING  There is not a single strike in British  Columbia, and if good Judgment is used  there will be no more strikes in the  mining districts of the province for many  years. This settled condition will result  in the return of good feelings between  employer and employee and the resumption of such good feeling will do much  to restore prosperity. While The Tribune can make no very interesting announcements in the way of strikes either  in new ground or in producing mines, all  reports are of the same tenure, that is,  that more men are, or soon will be, at  work in our mines than ever before in  the country's history.  ONE OF THE LARGEST ON THE  CONTINENT.  The Moyie Leader says: "An important strike was made in the St Eugene  mine this Aveek when between eight and  nine feet of solid ore was struck about  GOO feet in from the 100-foot level of the  shaft on the Lakeshore claim. This is  on a cross lead between Avhat is known  as, the south vein and the main lead.  A'li the development work done from  this level goes to prove that the enormous bodies of ore encountered in the No.  1 workings maintain their size as they  go down, and in one place the ore has  reached the width of 33 feet. Take it  all in all it is doubtful if there is a  better developed or better equipped mine  in Canada than the St. Eugene, and so  far as silver-lead mines are concerned  perhaps there are no better on the American continent. There is enough ore  blocked out to.keep the mill runnin-j  steadily for eight or ten years, and the  machinery and equipment for operating is equal to the best in the country.  In the face of this the mine is to be  ���closed down for an indefinite period  pending the action of the lead market."  2S00 pounds reached Ferguson a few  days ago where it will lie until the balance is taken out. It then will be taken  in Avagons to Trout Lake for shipment  to the smelter. At the Old Gold the  lower tunnel is now encountering considerable mineral and it is believed  from indications now present that the  ore chute is at no great distance. At  the Primrose a force of men are employed and things at this property are  looking very promising. The trail whicli  Avas commenced last year from the main  Duncan up the Little West Fork, is now  at Spencer City and communication between Hall's Landing and the Old Gold  camp on Westfaill creek is now established.  on Giveout creek, a distance of 7200  feet. These properties are about 2 1-2  miles south of Nelson.  A BIG INCREASE IN PROFITS.  Trout Lake Topic: .. "The last of the  ore at Trout Lake, the fruits of last Avin-  ter's work, was taken out last Saturday  by the Victoria. The aggregate shipments of both the Sihrer Cup and Nettie  ���L was in the neighborhood of 1400 tons  fand its value will not'be "short of $195,-  000 gross. Owing to the completion of  the Lardo branch of the C. P. R., freight  rates will be about cut in tw.o so that  'iiie" iiixsiiiS 'Horn tAe shipments* v. ill' be  many-thousands of dollars in or., than  they were under the old conditiiis."  ON FORTY-NINE CREEK.  L. J. D. Berg of Chicago is working  the Alexandria group of three claims,  situate on Forty-nine creek, 12 miles  southwest of Nelson. About $1100 have  been spent on the porperty in sinking  a shaft and making open cuts. The ore  carries $21 gold and $6 silver values to  the ton, and can be got to the Avagon  road by rawhiding a distance of 4 1-2  miles. There are quite a number of  other claims in the same neighborhood,  several of whicli have good showings.  TROUT LAKE DISTRICT.  The Trout Lake Topic says: "At the  Guinea Gold things are looking very  nicely. The tunnel is now in about 100  feet with ore for the entire distance.  There has been taken out and is lying  on the_dump about 30 tons__of___i,_**_.a_i30j_s_  tion of which is concentrating. The first  installment of a 20-ton shipment, about  PREPARING FOR AN INCREASED  OUTPUT.  Referring to  the  Le Roi  mine,   the  Rossland Miner of yesterday says:    "In  vieAv of the largely enhanced shipments  at a comparatively early date from decreased costs of freight and treatment  the Le Roi mine has blocked out large  reserves of ore to be mined when the  amended  conditions  take  effect.  With  these reserves being stoped it is stated  that the mine will be in shape to mine  and ship 35,000 tons of ore every month,  and that 30,000 tons monthly would be  an easy problem for the mine to solve.  Such a production would involve shipments of almost 1200 tons daily, and the  activity   thus   engendered  Avill   be  extremely  desirable from  the standpoint  of the city generally,  involving,  as it  would,  large increases  in the working  forces whiih now include something over  300 men all told.   While the undertaking between the  mine and  the Great  Northern calls for a minimum output of  24,000 tons monthly, the mine will actually produce considerably more than this  amount Avhen the contract takes effect,  as a liberal margin will be provided in  order that slight accidents, not provided  for in the con tract, would not have the  effect of bringing the output beloAV the  tonnage stipulated.   Under ordinary circumstances the tonnage will therefore  run from  about 25.000 to about 28,000  tons monthly, and all this means larger  payrolls and stimulated business in the  city."  HAVE SOMETHING GOOD..  James Finley, resident manager of the  Sullivan mine, was in Fort Steele Sat-  ���ui-cla-/ lasl^says th. Prospector; -Mr."  Finley is a mining man of long experi-  tnce, and his satisfied expression is an  evidence that they have something good,  that is aAvay above the average in the  company's property, which will be demonstrated as soon as active operations  are commenced. There is a large amount  of pay ore in sight and when operations  are resumed regular shipments will be  kept up from the start.  SLOCAN ORE SHIPMENTS.  Six hundred and tAventy tons of ore  were shipped from Slocan mines last  week, as follows: Payne 20 tons, Sunset 20, American Boy 40, Arlington 60,  Last Chance 20, Enterprise 120, Whitewater 80, Slocan Boy 20, Rambler-Cariboo 100, Ruth 140.  TRAMWAY ORDERED.  The company that acquired the Athabasca and the Venus has let a contract  for the erection of a Riblet automatic  iie'-ial "tramway,_which_w*hen_completed  will be used in transporting ore from  the Venus mine to the Athabasca mill  THE MINES THAT PAY THE TAX.  Much is said and Avritten regarding the  2 per cent tax on the output of metalliferous mines in British Columbia. The  tax is levied, not on the gross value of  the ore, but on the value after all charges  for transportation and treatment have  been deducted, in other words the 2 per  cent is paid on the* value of the or* at  the mine. The following shows the  amounts paid as mineral tax by the several mines in West Kootenay and Boundary districts during the calendar year,  1901:  't is understood that P. Burns & Co. will  immediately begin the erection of a brick  building on their lot, and that others will  do likewise, as a portion of the burned  district is wtihin the fire limits.

At 3 o'clock in tho afternoon an alarm was sent to the lire station  from near the corner of Spokane street  and First avenue. The alarm was answered promptly, and when the firemen reached  the (.round they discovered that the buildings occupied by P. Burns & Co.'s meat  market and Thompson's restaurant were  on fire. Within ten minutes the Blue  Label building- and the Anaconda saloon  were ablaze, with the wind blowing- from  the southwest carrying the flames toward  the north and east. In a short time the  wind changed, and the Are jumped west  across Spokane street to the Eagle lodging  house and other buildings.  For a time a panic reigned, and many of  the business men on Columbia avenue began removing goods -and effects. The firemen worked to good advantage, however,  and did not allow the fire to spread to the  business section south of the alleyway between Spokane and AVashington streets.  The firemen were assisted by hundreds of  volunteers, and the department from Trail  arrived about 4 o'clock, coming thirty  strong with 1,000 feet of hose. They'covered  the distance between Trail and Rossland  In 36 minutes on a Canadian Pacific special  train.  The water supply was good, and within  two .hours the fire was under control. The  only injury of moment was suffered by  chief Guthrie, who was forced to drop from  the second story of the Burns' block, coming in contact with live electric wires  In his descent. AVithin thirty minutes  after the accident he was back directing  . his men.  The   losses   will   approximate   $70,000,   on  which   there   was   about  $20,000   insurance.

There is a slight difference between  the price of beef in Montreal and the  price in Nelson, as the folloAving from  the Montreal Herald of August 23rd goes  to show: "The way in which the price  of beef has come down is none the less  gratifying because it was not altogether  expected. Steaks which but- a few  months ago were selling at. 18 and 20  cents are today selling for 12 1-2 cents.  Some butchers advertise best sirloins for  10 and 12 cents. The reduction in price  -is=noticed-particularly-as=i*egards=beefc=  Cattle are plentiful at the present time,  and it costs little or nothing to feed  them. Spring lamb���several months old,  of course���is now sold by the pound,  while heretofore it was distributed only  in quarters. Areal is very scarce. The  spring calf is not being slaughtered, but  kept for stocking and autumn sales.  Pork is cheaper. Round steak, formerly  selling at 15' cents, is now quoted at 9  and 10. Sirloin, which .sold as high as  22 cents, is now sold at from 10 to 12  1-2 cents; beef chops, two for 25 cents,  and at some stores three for 25 cents.  Roast beef was an expensive item a few  months ago. It then sold at 18 and  20 cents. Now roasts sell for 7, S, 10,  12 and 12 1-2 cents. Shank, shoulder and  brisket beefs sell from 3 to 8 cents. Lamb  front quarters sell at. 7 and S cents and  hindquarters at 9 and 10 cents. The best  pork roasts sell at 10, 11 and 12 cents.  Mr. D. Furlong of Prince Arthur street,  who favored the Herald with the above  figures, said today that the price of beef  was at present lower than it had been  for many years. In the holiday season,  Mr. Furlong said, the price of beef would  certainly go up again, but he did not  think it would be as high as it was during last winter."  APPLIES FOR MORE LAND.  The West Kootenay Power & Light  Company, Limited, is after more land.  The company's manager is L. A. Campbell, Avho resides in Rossland, and the  following notice appears in the Official  Gazette and the Kaslo Kootenaian. It  is not in the public interest that one  corporation should secure all the land  on Kootenay river suitable for sites for  power stations, but evidently tbe West  Kootenay Power & Light Company, Limited, has a pull in at least on of the  departments���not the lands and works  department���which enables it to get  what it Avants.  NOTICE.  Notice is hereby given that sixty (GO*)  days from date hereof, I, L. A. Campbell,  of Rossland, intend to apply to the chief  commissioner of lands and works for  permission to purchase fifty (50) acres  more or less of waste land, in the dis-  At least one member of the provincial  government is aware of the fact that  there are people in Kootenay unwilling  to wait for the "better terms" negotiations between the provincial government  and the Dominion government to come  to a head. The "better terms" demanded  by the provincial government from the  Dominion government are based on the  relative proportions of the revenue contributed by the people of British Columbia to the Dominion in comparison with  that contributed by the people of other  provinces taken in connection with the  amounts that the Dominion expends in  British Columbia and the other provinces.  The people of Kootenay are large consumers of the products of the dairy, the  orchard, .and the farm, and owing to  their proximity to the state of Washington and to the fact that the inerior farm  ing disricts of the-province are handi-  caped by transportation and the holding  of large areas of cultivable land by  stockmen, they pay thousands of dollars  annually to dealers in Washington and  thousands more to the Dominion customs collectors in the way of duties on.  the produce imported. If the people of  Kootenay can produce a portion of what  they consume, the money.Avill not be  sent to farmers and dealers in the -statfi.  of Washington, or paid into the DOF'jjfc  ion treasury as customs dues.

W. C. Wells, chief commissioner  of lands and works, as the following  extract from a letter to one of the mem  bers of the legislature from West Kootenay shows:  ���J* There is much In what The'Nel- -f-  ���i- son Tribune says.

C. Killeen,  provincial inspector of roads to go to  the'-locality referred to, and see that  the road was put in good condition. Mr.  Killeen is now in Nelson, and is reported as saying that he had ordered  the necessary work to be done at once.  CONSERVATIVES CALL A CONVENTION  TO HELP SELECT A PROVINCIAL LEADER  NeAv life is to be instilled into the Conservative party in British - Columbia. At  present organization is known  as the "Liberal-Conservative Union of  British Columbia," of which J.: R. Seymour of-Vancouver is chairman of the  executive committee and C. J. South of  the same place is secretary. Who the  other members are is unknown in Kootenay, but the controlling element is at  the Coast, for they have ordered that a  convention of the "Liberal-Conservative  Union of British Columbia" will be held;  in Selkirk hall, Revelstoke, on the 12th  and 13th days of September, commencing at 9 o'clock a. m. The right to vote  at this convention is confined to delegates chosen by Liberal-Conservative  Associations or district meetings convened for the purpose, and one delegate  will be allowed for every twenty members of sxich association or district meeting. No proxies are to be allowed except by members of the exbcuti^e; of the  provincial union. It is given out that  R. L. Borden, leader of the Conservatives  in the house of commons, F. D.,Monk,:  M. P., E. F. Clarke, M. P., and- others  willr be in attendance  There is known to be rivalry within  the party over the leadership. The Conservatives on Vancouver Island -want  an Island man, either Prior or Eberts.  Those of the lower Mainland want a  man from the Mainland, and these men  are probably setting up the pins to make  "Dick" McBride of New Westminster  chv'ef cook. The Conservatives of the interior are divided. If .the rank and file  had a chance to express their opinions,  neither Prior, Eberts, nor McBride  would be unduly ele\-ated over their fellows. Prior, being a business man, and  the other two laAvyers, would be the  more acceptable, because there is a  strong feeling that lawyers, for some  reason, A\'hen elected to office, cannot  draAv the line between the interests of  their individual client's, which are often  corporations seeking undue advantages,  and the interests of the people.  The Conservative Association of Nelson became discredited in 1900, through  its action in attempting to disfranchise  hundreds of persons entitled to vote, and  there has been no organization worthy  of the name since. The officers of the old  association were: Fred Irvine, president, and S. M. Brydges, secretary. Mr.  Irvine, as president of the old association, has called a public meeting, at the  Board of Trade rooms, for Tuesday,  night, to which all Conservatives are;  invited.  It is not likely that the convention  at Revelstoke will be of any material  advantage to the party. As far as public  opinion has found expression.**At3 peo- ,  pie do not seem to be hankf||ES^, for-  an early election, and they cai-gjHfatle  Avho, for the time, holds the mereilf nom-*  inal honor of being a party figurTbead. ���  trict of West Kootenay, situated oh Jthe  north bank of the Kootenay river-about  thirteen (13) miles below Nelson.7Oom-  "-rhehciiig-^r'ii^pc^^  Liell's northeast corner placed at the  uoint where the north boundary of Lot  1394, joins the south boundary of the  right of'Avay of the Columbia & Kootenay railway; thence following the  south boundary of said right of Avay in  a westerly direction for a distance of  sixty (60) chains more or less, thence  following the boundary-of Lot 202S, in  a southerly direction to the Kootenay  river a distance of ten (10) chains more  or less; thence following the north bank  of said river and the north boundary of  Lot 1394, in an easterly direction to the  point of commencement.  Dated the 17th clay of June. 1902.  L.  A.  CAMPBELL.  IS NOT A POOR RELATION.  West Kootenay more than pays its  way and it is not a drain on the province. While the expenditures for official salaries, the maintenance of public  buildings, the expenses incident to the  administration of justice, and the dis-  ^bursem^rits^fo^  given in the table of expenditures printed below, they, in the aggregate, will not  amount to the difference between the  expenditures for roads and trails and  the revenue collected.

It. is quite possible, with the  multiplicity of interests of certain large  capitalists, that they should use their  influence in the various corporations  they control to prevent competition  either in steel making or in the transportation business. It has been proved  time and again that the railroads have  made it a practice to discriminate in  favor of certain producers as against  others. A logical result Avould be that  the railroads should demand similar favors in return. Where the controlling  powers of a steel trust and a railroad  corporation are identical or even closely  related, they would have little difficulty  if they dared to violate the law, to embarrass or suppress competition in the  way of new railroad lines.

It does not seem creditable that live  United States Steel Trust would refuse  to sell rails to a company which proposes to build a road that will' conflict  with railroad interests allied with the  steel trust. That is, however, the conclusion reached by the promoters of the  Omaha Northern railroad.which is to run  from Sioux City. Iowa, to Omaha. Nebraska. A buyer for the new railroad  company recently wrote to six houses  owned by the steel trust, asking for quotations on rails and expressing the intention to pay cash. Five of the houses  replied that no quotation could be made  until it was known who the purchaser  was and what was his project.

The Spokiine Spokesman^Revlew of yesterday has the following regarding future  railway extensions by James J. Hill: "The  nnnotinccmcnt that-president Hill's Coust-  Kontonny road I.s lo have a direct rnnner-  filon with the coal Holds at Morrissey, on  the Crow's Xest Southern, has led to considerable speculation aniong local railway  men as to tlie probable route east from the  eastern terminus of the Ar. V. & K. Unless a new road is constructed east from  the Spokane Falls & Northern tlie coal  from the Morrissey field will Hnd its way  via Jennings, Mont.,^.Spokane, Marcus and  the  AVashington & Great Northern.  It is reported that tlie recent extensive  yard improvements at Newport, Wash.,  mean more than the prospective growth  or the town. It is said that a survey  down the Pend d'Orielle river to a point  north of the Box canyon, thence west to a  connection with the AVashington & Great  Northern is contemplated as a cutot'C for  the transportation of coal and coke from  Morrissey to the smelters of the Boundary district.  The culol- would make a saving of between 30 and 50 miles over the route via  Spokiine and thence north over the Spokane  Kails & Northern.  Aside from this it is claimed that the  new road would originate considerable  tonnage in the development of the Pend  d'Orielle valley, which would result from  Die building of the line. It is estimated that  several hundred tons daily can be developed from the timber and mining resources  of tho valley, besides the agricultural and  other industrial  possibilities.  Just what steps have actually been taken  in this direction by the Great Northern  officials is unknown. Resident engineer  Alex Stuart is on the coast and a statement from him could not be obtained. A  Great Northern ollicinl said: "AVhile I do  not know anything definite about the proposed Newport-Marcus cutoff, I do not be  lieve that such a movejis^cbnteinpiatedjat'f.  present. \::. 7;7i84|S��7S7 " "~     T*}��! ,'"-���,  "TJiere haye.V^en someiipr^limlnary aur-V  ^���,re-"-V:\��r.

Would not the general public  expect that tiie sisters must bo financially-  helped from some fixed source in order to .  obtain such results? And yet the rules of  their institute show they are a non-incorporated body at present, and rely mainly  on tlie blessing which attends ardent and  untiring endeavor in the path of duty  during a life sacrificed in the Interests o��  humanity.

It is not likely, therefore, that  T^e people of Nelson will pay any great  to his opinions un so important a  stion as operating the tramway as a  p'S-'-'Iic    utility.    The people of Nelson  �����"���- different times declared their  belief in municipal ownership of public  utilities, and have expended $200,000 in  purchasing,   equipping   and   extending  water-works and electric lighting systems,  both  of which    Avere purchased  from incorporated companies and now  pay a good return on the capital invested.    Were    the    city to purchase,  equip, and    extend the street railway  system, so as to make it a public convenience, it is not    unlikely that the  venture would be an unprofitable one to  the municipality, or one that would result in loss to individual property owners.   The purchase and operation of the  street railway by the ulty would abate  the irritation and friction that is too  often in evidence between the officials  of the tramway company, who as middlemen act for the "West Kootenay Power  & Light Company, and the city council.  The abolition of this irritation and friction   would be a distinct   gain to the  peop]le, who, at times, have not the fullest confidence in some of the men who  happen to be elected to the council under  the prevailing   ward system.   The absorption of the tramway system by the  city would give the people a free hand  to deal directly with the West Kootenay  Power & Light Company for the purchase of poAver, which would also be a  distinct   gain.'     The   operation of the  ,tra-r.wav by the ci>ty- would- result- in- a:  much more frequent service,  Avhich is  entirely   practicable, as was shown on  Wednesday, when the cars were run on  a ten-minute schedule and at an astonishing low rate of fare.     The cost of  extending ��� the system so as to accommodate the people living in the southern half of the East ward���one of the  most populous parts of the city���would  not be in excess of ?G,000, notwithstanding the figures that have been given out  as the actual cost of the tramway and  the equipment used in operating its .two  miles  (or less)  of track. The Tribune  must therefore dissent from Mr. Mac-  donald's expressed opinions on the question referred to above;  but, then, The  Tribune has never agreed with Mr. Macdonald on any question affecting the welfare of Nelson, and, somehow, the people  of Nelson are pretty nearly always of  the same way of thinking as The Trib-  From Rossland comes the statement  that within GO dayy there will be more  men employed iu that camp than at any  time in its history.

The promptness with which the acting  government agent at Nelson ordered repairs made to the trail up Summit creek,  which was closed with fallen timber during the recent heavy storm, was appreciated by the prospectors of the Summit Creek  camp.  The general verdict here is that the  money apportioned for roads and trails in  the Goat River mining division has been  fairly distributed, and that when the work  is done there will be no good cause for  complaint. The main trouble is that at  the last provincial election every voter in  Creston except two voted for the successful candidate, and he is not able to give  them all jobs as foremen on road or trail  work.

There is in our time no historian, no  judge, no teacher, who is not continually  hindered in his work by the omnipresent  lie.  For the historian it is made dillieult to  separate tlie real facts from the mixture  of truth ami lies which  his material. The task of tho judge i.s nl-  most superhuman, because there i.s always  tho possibility that the accused, tho witnesses or the counsel on either or both  sides may tell things that are not exactly  true and very often barefaced lies, and  every teacher and educator knows that  truthfulness and sincerity arc the very  foundation of all morals, that the child  that lies will very often do even worse  things, and that the person who does not  hate the lie will not have the power to  resist the temptations of all kinds which  offer themselves to all of us during our  life.  I shall try to explain the origin and nature of this vice of lying that we find In  all classes and in all ages. I shall try to  analyze the complicated soul of the person  who lies.  First of all, let us try to discover how a  child begins to lie, what motives drive him  to lying and what sophisms he uses to justify his lie, and then afterwards a few  words as to how to counteract the lie, how  to fight against it and, if possible, how to  drive it out.  How does a child become a liar, how does  it discover how to lie, ana how does it get  into the habit of lying?  The child in its very first years neither  lies nor simulates; its thoughts, its ideas,  its feelings are immediately transformed  into acts. This is the great, natural, primitive law. Every idea, every desire immediately becomes an act. The net is only  the idea, left to itself and following its  natural course, and this is what we see in  all impulsive or ail hypnotized persons  whose personal will power is not strong  enough to control.  In the child all thoughts are immediately  expressed in movements,  in cries or later  KOOTENAY LAKE  STEAMBOATS  Hal four, Pilot Bay, Ainsworth  Kaalo and all Way Landings.

Although those Avho favored the passage  of the by-law were well organized and  polled their full vote, public sentiment  was against the proposal of giving the  tramway the right to operate its cars  for three months a year.    The people  who held  these    views    were without  organization; they did not spend a dollar  for hacks or for workers.   They had no  pull, .but they, had the good sense to  know that the by-law under consideration Avas not a good thing for Nelson.  The tramway company is now in the  position that it must either operate its  cars continuously or forfeit its franchise.  If it forfeits its franchise the city will  be in a position to make a deal for the  property on a basis of its actual value  and not on what it cost, a cost which  undoubtedly included considerable sums  that did not go into construction account.    The tramway    outfit is worth  /about $15,000, and the city could afford  to pay that much for it.    It could be  operated as a public utility, and even if  it did not pay operating expenses, the  city would not be continually publishing statements to that effect, and thus  advertising the fact that Nelson is not  a good place in which to invest capital.  The sooner the city gets rid of the tramway company the better; and the sooner  the tramway company gets rid of its  tramway the sooner v/ill its real estate  investments in Nelson pay fair dividends on the whole of the capital it has  invested in Nelson.  point of view the difference i.s almost imperceptible, because both are in contrast  to tho truth.  It is very natural that the child should  discover the He through playing���it is suf-  licent that it sees tlie grown people sire  taken  in  once or twice,  that it discovers  always constitute ��� tlml " C!Ul fo��* ,ls* '* nm'JM itself over  our credulity, and then it will soon know  how to lie.  The second moment is the teaching of  lying by example, the revelation that the  lie is not only tlie possible but real, that it  is practiced by the persons that surround  it, and what is the worst of all, by its own  parents.  AVe all lie before our children; we all tell  any number of fibs that we consider excusable; we let the servants tell that we  are out, when wo are at home; wo compliment people to their face and criticise  them behind their back; we say that we arc  delighted to see a person, whom we do  not care to see at all. These tolerated lies  are sufficient, the example is set, but stili  worse is it when a child is made an accomplice in a lie, as when a mother will  say to a child: "Now, you must not tell  papa anything' about this." To treat a  child this way, to teach it that things may  be done, but not told, is to show It the  straight road to moral ruin.  The third moment comes when the child  faces its first conflict with society. It already knows that lying is possible; that  it is practiced by almost everybody, and it  now discovers that lying is, so to speak,  necessary.  Every child makes its start in life with  perfect candor and sincerity; it says everything that it thinks and feels; It' immediately transforms its impressions Into words  and acts; it wears absolutely no mask. But  very, very soon it discovers that this will  not do. Sooner or later it suffers for its  frankness.  In the first place its own parents will  show their dissatisfaction, will tell it that  it must not repeat everything that it hears  or say everything that it feels. They do  not directly teach it to lie, but they do  teach it that to be sincere in everything  is to make yourself ridiculous, to say the  least.  Very soon the child learns not onlv to  conceal its real feelings, but also to "pretend feelings that it does not possess; it  soon learns that confidence is abused; that  promises are given, only to be broken; that  the whole social life is one rotten, hollow,  empty shell.  Thus the child learns that absolute sincerity, absolute straightforwardness is an  utter impossibility, that there are many  reasons why it must be impossible; that  politeness forbids us to bo truthful; that  modesty and policy are continually lighting sincerity, and the child becomes a  conventional liar a.s everybody around it is.  After this comes the critical point. Will  the child stop here, will it not slide further  down, will it understand to go beyond the  line  of these  necessary  conventional  lies?  Until now the child is still relatively sincere, it has seen that lying is possible, that  its own parents are guilty of lying almost  every day. It has even seen that lying is  necessary. But how prevent it from becoming what society calls a liar?  Education has much to do with this. It  is very important that the educators understand when to punish and when to not. Tlie  child that gets into the habit of lying is  very often the child who is too often and  too severely punished by its parents or its  teachers.  The child who is always afraid of punishment, the child who is beaten for tlie  smallest offense, will very soon find out  that if it confesses having done something  wrong it is sure to be punished.  The first and second time he offends he  may have the courage to admit frankly  that he has done wrong, but very soon he  will begin to conceal, partly because he is  afraid of the humiliation and partly because he does not want to shock his parents, or his friends, or to cause them any  unnecessary sorrow, and lying becomes  easier every timo it is practiced, and at last  a person will lie at the very smallest temptation and even without any temptation at  all, hardly realizing himself that he is not  telling the truth, and when It comes to  this point it is only a very strong character  that will be able to redeem a person.  These are the different reasons that make  a sincere child or person become a liar,  and the most prominent of them is the  desire to appear to be living a respectable  life, when you know you are not. The lie  is a mask that we wear when wo do not  want people to see us as we nre; we get  into the habit of lying when there are too  �� many things in our life that we are ashamed of and that we dare not admit.  ��� ������  E.

This is  human nature. We want everything in  sight; but wo want someone else to pay  the reckoning.  Municipal ownership of public utilities, like street railways, according to  W. A. Macdonald, K.

He is quoted as saying on  Wednesday, soon after the ballots cast  at the tramway by-law election were  counted, that "the idea of the city purchasing and operating the tramway  "under present conditions is farcical  "*_td    unworthy  ��f Mrious Mnsiitora-  From all sections of Southeastern British  Columbia  come  reports  that  the  outlook is_becoming brighter.   In southeast Kootenay the coal mines are working full forces and a number of men are  prospecting for coal and- oil lands.    In  northeast Kootenay there is considerable  activity in mine development, and more  than the usual activity in the lumbering  industry.   In the section of AVest Kootenay of which Revelstoke is the centre,  times are good.    In the Lardeau  and  Trout Lake districts, judging from the  reports appearing in the two local newspapers, there never was more activity.  This is largely due to the fact that development   work on the   gold-bearing  ledges on Fish creek is proving them to  be good, and to the fact that shipments  can be made from   the   mines around  Ferguson on payment of a fair transportation rate, now that tbe C. P. It.  is operating its branch between Lardc  and the lower end of Trout lake in connection with a steamer running from  the lower end of the lake to Trout Lake  City.    Around  the  different camps  in  the  Slocan  there  is  marked  improvement.   In what is known as the Nelson  district, a doz��n atlnos art shipping ora.  WHO  RECEIVES  THE   SALARY?

Having been repeatedly called  upon to take provincial cases in an ex-  officio capacity, I av.-is finally appointed  a stipendiary magistrate in January,  1899, since Avhich time I have taken  nearly all the provincial cases tried here.  The remuneration has only been the  fees derived. Eight-tenths of the cases  tried have been either preliminary cases,  where there have been committals, or  summary matters, where .the accused  parties have been found guilty and sent  to jail. The preliminary trials have  always occupied a considerable time. In  both these instances, I have not received any remuneration whatever. In summary matters, also, there have often  been dismissals, and such dismissals  have usually been under the nature of  the circumstances Avithout costs. My  services therefore as a stipendiary magistrate have been practically gratuitous.  E. A. CREASE.  Nelson, August 23rd.  NOT IN NEED Ol"* SYMPATHY.

In this passing from the primitive sincerity to mendacity we are able to discover  "a^cerfaih"humb"er^f"m^nients7 -"*  First the child discovers the lie, then it  notices that lying is practiced all around it,  then that lying is useful or even necessary,  and, finally, it starts to lie itself.  The child first discovers the lie by playing. To play is to live in a world of  dreams, of unreality, of illusion. To play  is to transform the monotonous reality into an alluring notion, which is more in  accord with the desires of the soul of the  child. A little girl, for instance, plays with  her doll and tells that she has a baby, that  lt will soon grow, and that it begins to  talk and so on.

MILLS ON THE DOLLAR  AT  "Mayor Fletcher and aldermen Hamilton,  Irving, Moiirison, Scanlan, and Selous,  assisted by hospital directors Byers, Johnstone, and Lay, opened last Monday's session of the cily council. In addition to tlie  above-named gentlemen, there were present the short-hand reporter, the editor of  the Nelson Economist, the city clerk, the  city engineer, and the chief of the lire department. The long-hand journalist was  not present at the opening, as lie was in  attendance at a meeting of local capitalists  who expect to soon become multi-millionaires through owning undeveloped coal  lands somewhere east of the Rockies.  AVhen the long-hand journalist arrived at  tlie council meeting, the mayor and alderman Irving were having a warm discussion, ��� in which tlio mayor was trying to  make the alderman believe that he (the  mayor) had not s"aid the doctors of Nelson  were all alike; that they were all grafters.  The alderman had rather the best of the  discussion, and the mayor for the time  subsided. AVhat had taken place before  his arrival, the long-hand journalist is un-,  willing to say in print. What took place  after his arrival is as follows:  Alderman Selous���I want to see the ffn-  ance committee do tho investigating, as  the question is one that affects the city's,  finances.  Alderman Hamilton���Them's my sentiments too., lt will be better for all concerned, therefore let the question of a  grant be referred to the linance committee.  Alderman Irving���The question should be  referred to an independent committee, one  in no way connected with either the hospital  board or the council.  Alderman Scanlan���The question caij only  be settled by a fair investigation, and the  sooner it is threshed out the better.  Hospital Director Byers���As a member  of the hospital board I court the fullest investigation Into the way the board is conducting the affairs of the hospital. 1 believe the board have done right, and as  far as 1 am concerned, I will do my best  to make the investigation a thorough one  and the sooner it is held the better.  Mayor Fletcher���Alderman Scanlan and  myself are members of the hospital board  and we should not be on an investigating  committee. If we do not attend, aldermen  Irving and Hamilton will have to do all  the investigating.  Alderman Scanlan���I suggest that a  special committee, made up of aldermen  "Morrison, Selous, and Hamilton, be appointed to make the investigation.  Alderman Selous objected, saying he had  been doing too much investigating lately.  Tho Omayor hero interjected a remark,  which "brought the following' retort from  alderman Irving: "I, have got your own  statement for it, Mr. Mayor, that the  doctors are grafters," The mayor tried to  wriggle out of the hole alderman Irving  had chased him into, but it was no go; so  he stopped explaining what he had intended to say when he said the doctors  were all a lot of grafters.  At this stage, alderman Hamilton wanted  to withdraw his motion that the matter be  referred   to   the   finance   committee;   but  ���alderman Selous would not listen to it as  seconder.  Hospital Director Johnstone���AAliat the  hospital directors want is an investigation  held so that the proceedings can be taken  down by reporters and printed in the newspapers. The public maintain the hospital  and they should know how it is being  managed.  Alderman Irving���I suggest that the  investigation   be   held   by   police   magistrate  . Crease of by judge Forin.  Mayor Fletcher���Judge Forin was lately  a director of the hospital.  Hospital Director Byers���I do not think  the directors care who is appointed on the  committee of investigation. So far as I  am concerned, judge Forin would be as  satisfactory as anyone else.  Mayor Fletcher���I believe a special meeting of the council should be held to investigate the question.  Alderman Hamilton���I am willing to  change my motion so that the committee  of investigation will be made up of the  whole council, instead of the finance committee.  __ This motion was finally adopted, and  hospital "directors J6hTfstShe^^I^ay^"���Arid,  Byers silently, left the council chamber in  Indian file.  The finance committee's report was then  read by the city clerk. The accounts,  aggregating $2.1a'J.5G, were adopted without  a word being said; but when it came to  clause 2, which recommended that 75 per  cent, of the city printing be given to the  Daily News and the remaining 25 per cent,  to the other offices, a discussion arose that  lasted half an hour. In advocating the  clause, alderman Irving contended that the  Daily News was an industrial enterprise  that gave steady employment to not less  than ten men; that it was a business that  benefited the city, and its suspension  would be a loss. He said, "We have been  granting bonuses to concerns that would,  if carried on, give employment to fewer  men than the Daily News employs, and  un application is now before the people  from a company for favors, a company  that does not employ as many men as the  Daily News."  Alderman Selous���AA*"ere not tenders called  for the city printing?  Alderman Scanlan���I do not think wo  authorized tenders to be called for, but we  did ask for a return to bo made as to the  amounts we had paid for city printing this  year; but, somehow, we don't get these  returns when we ask for them.  Alderman Hamilton���The understanding  at the fore part of the year was that the  daily paper (meaning the defunct Miner)  was to get the advertising and the job  work was to go to the Economist.  , As the election of four of the aldermen  who sit on the council was opposed by  both the defunct Miner and the Economist,  the statement of alderman Hamilton must  be taken with a grain of salt.  Alderman Scanlan���AA'hy shouldn't the  same argument hold good in distributing  the city printing as was used, sometime  ago, in distributing the team work on the  streets. It was then contended that the  men who had a large number of teams  should be shown more consideration than  the men who had only one team.  The mayor looked sadly at the city clerk,  as much as to say, what is alderman Scanlan driving at? I never wanted to give my  friend AA'illiams all the city teaming; no,  never!  Alderman Selous then tried to explain  that the proposed arrangement would not  be to the advantage of the Dally News;  ���that it had already been given all the ad  vertising, which was the best paying part  ot" the business. He then made quite a  lengthy speech on the cost of the different  kinds of printing and the profits made.  All of whicli was very edifying to the  long-hand Journalist who sat just across  the table from the worthy alderman.  Mayor Fletcher���1 don't like these things  to be brought up here.  Alderman Selous���Neither do 1.  Mayor Fletcher���We have been trying to  work the thing equitably, giving all the  printing offices a share of the work. 1  suppose this clause in the report is merely  figurative.  Alderman Scanlan���No, It is not merely  figurative. AVe mean what we say. If it  is merely figurative why was the statement the council asked for some timo ago  not laid before tlie finance committee?  The mayor put the question as to whether  the clause would stand as part of the report and alderman Selous said: "I think  it is unnecessary and I vote no." Aldermen Morrison, Scanlan, and Irving voted  yea, and * alderman Hamilton and tho  mayor wore silent.   The clause stood.  The city has paid out $IS7.54 since January 1st for printing, namely: "Nelson  Miner $1S1,99, Dally News $taS.55, Nelson  Economist $114, and AV. H. Jones $33.  The clause regarding the rate of taxation was next considered. "  >  Alderman Selous wanted the rate for  school levied on the improvements as well  as on the land. He claimed if this was  dono. it would bring $1,000 more into the  city treasury.  Alderman Hamilton agreed with alderman  Selous, and In addition said the schools  must stand on their own bottom. If we do  not make them stand on their own bottom  this year we will have to do it later on.  Mayor Fletcher���In what way are you  figuring?.  Alderman Selous���The improvements aro  assessed at $500,000 or over and 2 mills on  that amount would amount to $1,000.  Mayor Fletcher���O, I see!  Alderman Scanlan���I certainly believe the  land should bear the burthen of taxation.  Alderman Irving���1 am of the opinion that  the policy that has been pursued ever since  the town was incorporated is the best one.  Improvements have not been taxed, as  the occupiers of improved premises pay  the city large sums in Indirect taxes, such  as sewer rentals, water rates, electric light  rates, and licenses. It is the improvements  that make a town, and not vacant lots.  The question was put on motion of alderman Morrison, seconded by alderman Irving, and carried by the votes of Irving,  Morrison, and Scanlan. Alderman Selous  voted no, and the mayor and.. alderman  Hamilton did not vote.  Clause 3 of the report was adopted.  Clause 1 was discussed. Aldermen Irving  and Hamilton favoring it, and alderman  Scanlan and Selous opposing. Those who  favored the clause standing contended that  people who beautified their premises  should be encouraged in the good work,  and that there was not as much water used  in watering lawns as was used in wetting  down sidewalks on Baker and other streets.  Alderman Selous���The amount charged'is  ludicrously small, and its payment cannot  work a hardship on anyone.  Alderman Irving���I have just been informed by the long-hand journalist, who is  an ex-mayor, that the recommendation of  the finance committee is out of order, as  the water works by-law canont be amended  by simply adopting a clause in a committee's report.  Mayor Fletcher���O. we can make rebates  at any time; we have always been doing it  The mayor should read By-laws SI and 84,  and after he does so carefully he will undoubtedly be convinced that neither he nor  the council have any right to make any  rebates on water ��� rates without first  amending the by-laws.which regulate the  water works system and the. supply of  water.  The clause was struck out on motion of  alderman Morrison seconded by alderman  Scanlan.  The next question considered was a letter  from the chief of the fire department calling attention to the fact that the grass,  weeds, and brush cut on ths residence  streets had not been removed, and t'  if ~i t^vffs~7iorThef^  a fire be started. The city engineer wns ordered to give his earnest attention to the  matter.  A letter was read from the Independent  Order of Foresters asking that a water  pipe be laid to their plot in the city cemetery. Quite a lengthy discussion ensued,  during which the mayor and city clerk  had a quiet confab at ono end ot the tabic,  and the short-hand reporter and the editor  of the Economist held another at the other  end. The long-hand journalist and alderman Morrison appeared ns if they were  asleep. Finally, the question of getting  a supply of water to the future graves of  dead Foresters was left to the city engineer.  Tenders were opened for supplying the  city with service boxes for the water  system. There wero tour tenders. Two  were from outside houses and two from  local houses. Alderman Selous said: "O,  give it to a local man; the difference Is  only a few dollars anyway."  On motion of alderman Scanlan, the tender of the J. H. Ashdown Hardware Company, Limited, of Nelson, was accepted,  their bid being $1.30 each for one size and  $1.'15 each for another size, as against  McLachlan Brothers' bid of $1.G0 and $1.75.  Alderman Scanlan called attention to the  condition of some of the stone crossings on  Baker street, and said they were dangerous when driven over fast.  Mayor Fletcher���Yes; they icre very bad.  I don't like that system myself.  The city engineer tried to explain what  he had intended doing to repair the crossings, but was interupted by the mayor,  who said: "They ought to bo filled in.  They are very bad. It is a funny thing;  those flagstones all turn up on the outside  of the crossings. I asked the city engineer  to fix those crossings particularly. I will  look into the matter with the city engineer  and have the matter attended to.  The mayer suggested that the council  resolve itself into the board of health to  consider the report of the medical health  officer, who was present.  Alderman Morrison���Before doing this, I  would like the council to take up the question of tho Rossland labor excursion.  Mayor Fletcher���What action would you  suggest?  Alderman Morrison���I would suggest that  the council grant a sufficient sum for prizes  for athletic sports.  Alderman Hamilton���I do not altogether  see why the council should shoulder all  these affairs. Tho citizens should take it  up.  Alderman Selous���I do not think it is the  province of the council. .Poor little Slocan  City has made a bid to get it, and great  big Nelson should not make an effort to  beat them out. If we can offer them no  better attraction than the Nelson baseball  team, we had better leave them alone.  Alderman Scanlan���There could be a  drilling contest.  Alderman Hamilton���The citizens have  not made a move in the matter.  Mayor Fletcher���I have not heard that  a move has been made.  Alderman Irving���We are, through the  Tourist Association, making efforts to bring  individual tourists to Nelson, why not  make an effort, to bring a train load of  miners and their friends from Rossland?  Mayor Fletcher���Miners are not tourists.  Alderman Scanlan���They will be tourists  for a day.  Alderman Morrison���I move that $500 be  granted for the purpose and that a committee be appointed to make the arrangements.  Alderman Scanlan���IwIIl not stand for  more than a grant of $100, the remainder  to  be subscribed by the citizens.  At this point the long-hand journalist got  sleepy and quit the council chamber.  the money waiting for them. The company  recently sent up four cases of overalls, etc.,  to the Yukon, and plenty of orders are  available.- In fact this business looks like  one that should grow considerably, and the  new factory reflects much credit on the  Turner-Beeton Company.

On Wednesday an election was hold iu  Nelson to ratify a by-law which allowed  the tramway company to hold its franchise if it only operated its cars three  months in each year until the cily had a  population of S.000. There wore two polling  places. That for the East ward was held  in the city hall, whero the city clerk was  returning ollicer and S. McLeod clerk. Ju  the AVest ward, Iho polling place was In  AVard Brothers' office, and police magistrate Crease wus deputy returning ollicer,  with A. P. Hay clerk. In the East ward  AV. A. Macdonald, Charles A. AVaterman,  and John Patterson were scrutineers for the  tramway company, and in the AA'est Ben  Mighton acted in a like capacity. There  were hacks in evidence and a ten-minute  service on the tramway, but no undue  excitement. The tramway people worked  hard, and got out a full vote. Those opposed to the by-law voted and then went  about their business.  The only incident worthy of note occurred  at the East ward about half an hour before  the polls closed. An Italian presented himself and asked for a ballot. The tramway  scrutineers objected, claiming the Italian  was an alien. The returning officer knew  that the Italian had become a duly naturalized British subject four years ago, and  said so. The tramway scrutineers withdrew their objections, and the Italian then  informed the returning officer that he was  unable to read English and wanted his  ballot marked. The returning officer tried  to explain the question, and made his explanation so involved that the Italian he-  HOTEL PHAIR  80 ROOMS  AH Njodern Conveniences  E."

Stanley and Victoria Streets,     JvJiLSON, B.C.  I'  HAVE SUBSTITUTED AVHITE LABOR  FOR CHINESE.  Ex-alderman II. B. Thomson of Nolson,  who is now manager of the Turner-Beeton  Company of Victoria, sends word to Tho  Tribune that his company has started a  factory for the manufacture of shirts and  overalls, and that only white labor will be  employed. The factory Is situated ln Bastion square, occupying the first floor of the  block on the corner of Bastion and AVharf  streets. Previous to the establishment of  this factory the work was given out to  Chinamen, but now about 20 girls are employed at good wages, and there is room  for more of them. The two rooms which  compose the factory are large, airy and  scrupulously clean, the walls and ceiling  being whitewashed. At a long table with  some thirty sewing machines at reasonable  distances apart, are seated about 20  young women, fully occupied in watching  the machines, which are run by power at  the rate of 2,000 stitches per minute. It is  head work and not hand work. The factory is practically a union shop, all the  employees being organized by. the Garment  AVorkers' Union, and the label has been  applied for and will shortly be affixed ti  the garments produced. Thomas AValker,  manager of the factory, was himself largely responsible for the organization of the  employees, being satisfied of the advantages that will ultimately accrue therefrom  to the company as well as to the girls.  The company has signed the union agreement, and the girls have elected to be paid  by the day at a rate satisfactory to the  union. The eight hour day is the rule,  with a half holiday on Saturday afternoons. Any overtime work Is optional, and  is paid according to the union rates. At  present there is room for eight more girls,  but in spite of the advantages offered by  the factory, the young women of Victoria  do not seem in a hurry to go in and earn  TREMONT  HOUSE  European and American P'an.

That is  rather a primitive, exaggerated way of  expressing tlie matter; but much truth  underlies the homely old maxim, when you  note the extravagant waste and woeful  want in many households, realizing only  too well wherein the trouble lies. For no  matter how lavish a frugal man may be  with his money outside of his home, he  rarely, or in very exceptional cases, has  anything to do with the housekeeping expenditures beyond paying tlie bills.  An exceedingly capable young matron,  one whose husband was progressive in his  affairs financially to a surprising degree  to onlookers, recently made some practical  remarks relative to this subject, which  gave an insight into the inner workings of  domestic science that would materially  lighten the cares of many anxious housekeepers, if a few of her theories were  heeded and practiced.  "The housekeeping all belongs exclusively to a woman," she said. "Your husband  really knows very little about it, or whether  you spend his salary judiciously or nof.  If he is a kind, considerate person, he eats'  what is placed before him without questioning the cost of the material used.  "AVhat man realizes whether one or one  dozen eggs were used in the cake which he  consumes at luncheon, or if you buy  cheaper cuts of meat and utilize the possibilities of your meat-chopper in making  them palatable? Or again, if all of the  odds and ends in culinary use are made the  most of by being served up in dainty  dishes, instead of thrown out, as so many-  do? It is the same through all of the  minor details of home management, for it  - is unquestionably the little foxes which  spoil tlie vines. And in the small things  lies the secret of the wise housekeeper's  generalship."  lt did not seem at all strange that this  woman's husband should bo one of the  most prosperous young men in the community.  Another struggling young husband came  In mind���one who was kind, thrifty and  industrious, a splendid manager in every  sense of the word where he was concerned  or could control tlie household expenses;  yet the haggard, care-worn look on his  kindly face was a constant anxiety to his  friends. His business opportunities at the  starting point had been fully equal if not  better than the other man's; but he had  long been surpassed in the race by the  seemingly more fortunate person, and an  insight of his home-keeping affairs told the  story.  His wife was incidentally heard to say,  "AVe always have angel food at our house  twice a week; the children like It to piece  on, and what are eleven eggs when eggs  are cheap?".It i.s a very small, apparantly  insignificant illustration, but volumes may  be read.between the lines.  In each family there were 'three daughters. One family was growing rich, happy  and prosperous, with every necessary comfort; while the second family' struggled  continually against adverse circumstances.  There was the same noticeable difference in respect to the children's clothing,  where the judicious mother dressed her  little girls neatly and tastily in dainty  ginghams and percales, which would  launder and retain a fresh appearance until worn out. The other children wore  cheap, sleazy silk waists and cloth skirts  of corresponding texture, to school, the  mother explaining that the dainty colored  silks were so pretty and cheap, for it  only cost fifty cents per yard, and two  yards were sufficient���what was one dollar  for a waists? She did not realize in tha  least that this same dollar would have  bought at least three dimity waists,  which could have been laundered repeatedly? keeping the small wearer neat and  wholesome for a long time, where the other  waist was soiled and ruined after a few-  weeks' wear.  It seems sometimes that good, sound  common sense, with the ability to apply  it in daily use, is the greatest boon that  can be bestowed on womankind, especially so if the environments surrounding  her  include  limited   means.  In many households you witness the unnecessary struggle with adverse circumstances. In many homes carping caro  reigns supreme, because widely divergent  ends refuse to meet and the purse fails to  supply the demands of the family needs.  This might all so frequently be avoided  if only common sense, the talisman to  prosperity, and also of most happiness,  was fastened to the helm.  The hand which guides this tiller, too,.-  is the housewife's, and whether she fails  in her efforts, either through Inability or  from a wilful disregard of the minor details of the work entrusted to her care,  the results are relatively the same; and  the home life, is either made or marred  thereby. Yet there is the trite old adage,  which caries encouragement in every syllable to the woman who desires to be a  prudent housekeeper, "she is never too old  to learn," and the small economies which  make up the sum of practical housekeeping, are possible to her if she holds to tho  determination of conscientiously making  the most of her opportunities.

Ex-mayor Houston, who was  present, tried to help the returning officer  .and became, a dispute with the  tramway scrutineers. The Italian looked  as if he was looking for "Jack" Hamilton,  but the alderman from the AVest ward was  not in evidence. Finally, the returning  officer asked the Italian if he was "for" or  "against" the by-law, and the Italian answered that he wanted the cars to run all  winter. That answer was not satisfactory,  and he was again put through the sweat-  box. He looked at the ceiling and then at  the ballot-paper and said he would vote  "for" the by-law. The tramway scrutineers laughed, and the ex-mayor look a  walk and had his laugh when tho ballots  wero counted. AVhen the ballots wore  counted the vote stood:  For. Against.

THE TOWN AND DISTRICT  S. L. Myers of Northport, Washington,  is stoping- at the Bartlett.  A. R. Golrlle, of the Goldie & McCulloch  safe works, Gait, Ontario, Is registered at  the Hume.  The Nelson Saw & Planing Mills shipped  a carload of shiplap to Lethbridge, Alberta, on Wednesday.  W. H. Yawkey of Detroit, Michigan, who  has large mining interests in the Slocan,  is registered at the Phair.  Andrew Wallace, one of Nelson's early-  day residents, but now of New Denver, is  at the Madden. He is accompanied by his  wife.   Pon^MeBeathj-ofJ-Washburnr"Wiscori3irtr  is at the Queen's. Mr. McBeath is a  brother of "Dave" McBeath's, the .well-  known railway contractor.  A. H. Fingland, foreman of the Monitor  mine at Three--Forks, was in Nelson during the week. The Monitor is among the  best properties in tho Slocan.  Tho Nelson High School opened the fall  term with over 40 pupils in attendance,  which makes the Nelson school the third  in importance in the province.  During the week J. A. Sayward shipped  three carloads of lumber and two carloads  of shingles from his mills at Pilot Bay to  Lacombe, Bed Deer, Calgary, and Macleod.  Tho Nelson Saw & Planing Mills, Limited,  are making additions to their plant. A  now engine will be added, so as to give the  sawmill more power; trimmers, so that  lumber can be sent to the Northwest In  exact lengths; a dry kiln with a capacity  of 100,000 feet. The mills will be started up  next week and run to their full capacity.  The wind storm on Wednesday did considerable damage to llowers and fruit trees  in Nelson. Many of the fruit trees, although young, are heavily laden with fruit  this year, and the storm did more damage  in causing the fruit to drop than it did ln  breaking limbs. The storm was also felt  on the lake, some of the C. P. R. barges  and boats having to run to shelter.  Although the statement is not published  by authority of any of the tramway  officials, it is said that a cable was received in Nelson from London to stop the  car service here on Sunday night, the last  day of August. As the company has already stopped the service twice before this  year, the two-months limit is near an end,  and when the total for the year amounts  to two mouths the company will have forfeited Its franchise.  "Sam" Neelands, who went to South  Africa with the last Canadian contingent,  is back in Nelson looking as if driving  Boers had agreed with him. He was in  the Hart's river fight, where his company  ��� made so gallant a stand. In that fight the  Boers thought they had surrounded a  column made up principally of Imperial  Yeomanry and would have a soft snap, as  the Imperial Yeomanry had the reputation  of surrendering without fighting. "Sam"  says general Buller stands very high in the  estimation  of both  the Boer and British  soldiers, not only as a stubborn fighter,  but as a general who took good care of  his men. The Boers surrendered because  Kitchener had proctically driven them into  corners from which they could not escape.  T. P. Moran returned this week from  the Fish creek country, which he claims  is developing into a good mining district.  Sidney Nolan, who has been at Elko and  Frank with .P. Burns & Co., has returned  to Nelson for another stay in the head  offlce of that Arm.  R. F. Green, M. P. P., of Kaslo, was in  Nelson on Monday. He reports business  as fairly active at Kaslo, and that the  merging of four of Kaslo's mercantile  houses into a limited liability, company has  resulted in a saving that equals 10 per cent,  on an investment of ?70,000.  The Borden party will address public  meetings at Victoria on September Sth,  Vancouver on the 9th, New Westminster  on the 10th, Revelstoke on the 12th and  13th, Nelson on the 15th, and Rossland on  the 16th. From Rossland the party will  proceed to Banff, Alberta, where they will  take the waters of that famous health  resort.  Mayor Fletcher has called a special  meeting of the city council today to investigate the affairs of the Kootenay Lake  General Hospital Society, of which he is  chairman. Those who desire that the investigation should be thorough claim that  due notice should have been given of the  date on which the council would hold the  investigation. It is said that the society  has over ?7,000 due it from pay patients.  Fred Starkey returned Thursday from a  trip to Winnipeg and other points in Manitoba. He says Manitoba is booming because of the good crops and the thousands  of American who are looking for land.  The politicians now in power in Manitoba  are reaping a harvest and overlooking  nothing. Mr. Starkey says that, in his  *0plriibripTriVIsynT73aIy^  a short time ago to take up his residence  in Winnipeg, is not mentioned as a probable member of the Roblin government.  The Slocan Drill is quite wrathy because  Nelson took steps to Induce the miners of  Rossland to spend Labor Day in Nelson. A  business man of Nelson on returning from  a trip to Rosland said that the minors of  that city were undecided where to go on  Labor Day, and he suggested that tlie  people of Nelson make an effort to get  them. By the time steps could be taken,  the Rossland people hn,d decided to go to  Slocan City. As soon as. this became known  In Nelson, tho matter was dropped by the  peoplo of Nelson. No one but a churl  would slang people for doing what the  citizens'of Nelson did.  The Sisters of St. Joseph school opened  the fall term last week with 7a pupils. On  Tuesday of this week the annual prize distribution took place, and the following-  named received prizes: Harold Kinnehan,  grade Ave; Margaret Harwood, junior  fifth; Gwendoline Moore, senior fifth; Kate  Kilcline, junior sixth; Jessie McNeil, junior  sixth; Edith Thelin, junior seventh, who  received 100 marks for scripture history;  Helen Gigot, junior seventh, who received  100 marks for Christian doctrine; Mary  ���Harwood, senior seventh; Edna Knowlton,  grade eight. The special prize oitered to  the boys for neatest work was awarded to  Frank McNally. The prize for neatness  was taken for the girls by Florence Kinnehan. The gold medal awarded by Arthur  Perrier for best general proficiency, was  won by May Harwood, and the gold medal,  flrst prize for music, also donated by Mr.  Perrier, was awarded to Jessie McNeill.  The music prize in the junior division was  awarded to Bernardine Bosquet, and Kate  Kilcline received distinction. Willie Sturgeon took the drawing prize and Jack  Grant the arithmetic medal from the  juniors.  Australian hotel; A. F. Geddes, for the  Morrissey hotel; Myles A. Beale, for the  Imperial hotel; Andrew Johnson, for the  East Kootenay hotel. The new townsite  is owned by Foss & McDonald, tlie railway contractors. Breckenridge & Lund  have the contract for putting in 0,000 foot  of new sidetrack for the C. P. R., the depot of that company having been moved to  a point just across Elk river from the new  townsite.  HOTEL REGISTERS FULL OF NAMES.

PETER  THE MAN WHO DEFEATED  WHITE.  Among the tourists visiting Nelson this  week was Thomas Mackie of Pembroke,  Ontario. Mr. Mackie is a Liberal and sits  in the house of commons as member for  North Renfrew. The flrst time he stood  for election he defeated Peter White, who  was speaker, and the wiseacres predicted  the country would go to smash, but it  didn't and Mr. Mackie was easily reelected for a second term. "Tom" as his  friends call him, is a millionaire and he  made his money on the Ottawa river as  a lumberman. He has the credit of being,  in the early days, the best hewer "that ever  went into the woods along the Ottawa.
