 l^on  Saturday Morning, November 22, 1902  PUTTING MINING SUPPLIES ON FREE LIST WOULD BE OF NO MATERIAL ADVANTAGE  WORK AT THE YMIRxMINE AND MILL WILL NOT BE SUSPENDED DURING REORGANIZATION  The Ymir Gold Mines, Limited, is to  be reorganized. The company was  formed in London four years ago and  took over from the London & British  Columbia Goldflelds, Limited, the Ymir  mine and 40-stamp mill, paying therefor  ��200,000, which was tlie entire share  capital of the company. Since then the  company has added 40 stamps to the  mill and built a cyanide plant, besides  running a working tunnel that tapped  the ore body at a depth of 1,000 feet.  These improvements and work, costing  over $200,000, have been paid largely  out of earnings. Besides, dividends of  ?300,000 was paid the shareholders.  The ore at the 1,000-foot level was not  as good grade as on the levels that  were worked through the shaft, and as  considerable work would have to be  done .in order to'- develop the mine be-  ; tween the 1,000-foot level and the upper  levels", the directors - decided to reorganize-the company so that working capital could be secured.  A circular letter was issued to the  shareholders on October 20th. That circular letter reads as follows:  It will be remembered that at the animal meeting of the shareholders, held  on May 6th last, a resolution was passed  sanctioning an increase in the capital of  the company, for the puvpose of providing funds to pay for the installation of  , the cyanide plant, and for the further  development of the mine.  On reference to the circular of 15th  August last which enclosed Mr. Hooper's  report upon the mine, it \yill be seen  that at the extreme eastern end of the  tuniiel at the 1,000 foot level, where  the work was suspended, the values were  found "to be higher than at any other  part of the vein at this level. From  this fact, and from the general tenor of-  Mr. Hooper's .report, the directors have  great, confidence that as further development is accomplished the mine will  pove to be as valuable, as was ever expected..: To enable this.development to  be systematically carried "out, ;it,''is-"ne"c--  essary to provide ..additional funds..  Under- present market; conditions, "it - is",  obviously    impossible: tp increase    the"  "capital; 7.-;.; 7 '..." '..' -'���'"-���      '���" "���*?.  "-'���-���"  " In order to pay off the company's Ha-'  bilit'ies" for the cyanide plant (which is'  now in satisfactory operation), liquidate  the -bank' loan and make provision for  the   requisite   additional   working . cap-���  _ital.. the .-.directors-.recommend'-that the  ' ���com'pan;y^5e~r.eTO^  of an assessment of 3s. per share on the  issued capital of ��200,000, payable as  to 6d. per share on application, and Is.  per share on allotment, and the balance  in calls of Cd. per share at intervals of  not less than one month.  The effect of this arrangement will be  to free the company from all liabilities  and leave it with ample working capital for further development work.  ������ It will be remembered that during the  four years the company has been in  operation, it has made profits sufficient  to invest ��46,000 in permanent works  and development, and has also distributed ��60,000 in dividends.  The work of connecting the No. 10  tunnel, with the upper workings by  means of an upraise'(which is now in  progress) is necessary for the economical development of the mine. Until  this is completed, it is only possible to  keep 50 stamps at work.  Since the date of the circular, the steps  necessary to wind up the company and  organize a new   one has  been * taken.     The    new  "company    will   have  the  Same share capital as the  old one, and    the shares���  will   be   issued   with   17s.  ���laid, the remaining 3s. to  be  paid    on    call;-. "This  7  will    give   the   company  ?150,000    with    which  to 7  pay  off  the ,indebtedness .,..'  arid  for  use as  working  capital.  There is no intention of    ���  closing    down  operations   "  at the    mill    during the  time that may be required  to reorganize    the    company.  The last report made by.' .  the   directors  was  dated  April 20th, 1902, and was  for the year ending December 31st, 1901.   In that  report the directors place  tlie net profit for, the year  at  ��45,252 4s. 6d.,  which  added to the balance left  over    from  1900  made a  total  of   ��86,201  8s.  lOd.

During    the  year - 69,505  tons  of  ore  were   treated,    and    the  gross proceeds  therefrom  amounted     to     ��114,887,  which was an average value of $7.96 per  ton, as against $8.88 in 1900. Fifty-one  cents a ton of the loss in values _,vas  clue to the grade of the ore, and 41 cents  to the fall in prices of.silver and.lead.  How the fall in'prices of lead and silver  affected the general result is shown by  the following paragraph extracted froiri  the report of S. S. Fowler, the locaL  manager and engineer of the company:  "The actual average net price received by us for our lead in 1900 was $2.99  per 100 pounds, whereas in 1901 we got  only $1.65 per 100 pounds. The difference, $1.34 per 100, represents a decrease  to us amounting to $26,241 on the lead  produced by us in 1901. For our. silver  we received in 1901 58.6 cents per"  ounce as compared with 61.8 cents for  1900. This means a decrease of income  for 1901 for our silver amounting to  $2,302." i"  The above . paragraph will give the  reader a fair idea what the loss has-been  to Slocan- mine owners, whose mines  produce only lead and silver, through  the.fall in the prices of these two metals.  There is much more that is interesting  in the annual report, In the summary  of costs, the following figures appear:  "' Total.   Per ton.

The  mill is now dropping 50 of its 80 stamps,  and there is ore enough in sight to keep  the mill running for months.  The illustration printed herewith will  give the reader an idea of the size of the  ore body in the Ymir mine. The values  in the ore are principally; gold; and  have averaged from $8 to $10 a ton".  The mine is situation the north fork  of Wild Horse creek, five miles from the  town of Ymir, and about fifteen miles  from Nelson as: the crow flies.  THE  MINING  INDUSTRY  IN  BRITISH COLUMBIA.���Stope  in   the  Ymir  Mine.  NO GREAT ADVANTAGE.  According to the Sahdon7 Paystreak!'  the silver-lead mine-owners of the Slo-:  can are to a man    opposed to asking  the Laurier government for an increase  in duties on lead and lead products; but,  instead, that they favor asking the government to place all  articles used in  mining on the free list, to the end that  the cost of mining will be reduced." The  Tribune is an advocate   of   protecting  home industries, whether they be .silver-  lead mines or powder mills or shovel  factories, and it has taken the trouble  to investigate the question of the cost  of mining supplies in the United States-  as compared    with the cost in British  Columbia.  ���Men who handle mining  supplies claim, that ..the  mine-owner who works  from 10 to 100 men,in the  silver-lead mines of the  ^Slocan are today pur-  Chasing mining supplies  at a less cost than are  mine-owners in the states  who work the same number of men; but The  Tribune, in all cases, has  based Its estimates on  mining supplies manufactured in the United  States, and when used in..  Canada must have paid  duty.  The Tribune's estimate  is based on a mine working 100 men underground,  as the men underground  use the bulk of the mine  supplies. One hundred  men working underground  everyday in the year, will  average about 1,500 feet of  * development work a year,  which would require 7%  tons * of rails for new  tracks. In addition to  the" V/z ,tons>f rails, 100  men' in the Slocan will  use 36 tons of powder, 456  boxes - of candles, 500  ; shovels, 100 picks, and 2  "tons of drill .steel. The  above are the main supplies used in Slocan mines  where the drilling is all,  or, nearly    all, done    by  _^andi-_Taking. th.e���car^.  ���HoSd "price of powder at  Butte, Montana, which is  $13.10 a hundred, as  compared with the price  at Nelson, which is $14 a  hundred, the Slocan mine-  owner will pay $18 a ton  more for the powder he  his     neighbor     in     the  States,    or    $648    more Vin    a    year,  ���.ffis,'*** "candles     will'   cost    him    $1.10  a*Si)6x more than his neighbor In "tie  States, or $501.60 more in a year.   The  difference in the cost of mine rails is  $7 a ton, or $52.50 in a year.   Drill steel  will cost him $6.50 a ton more, or $13  -a year'more.    Picks will cost $2.92i_ a  dozen    more, or $25    more in a year.  Shovels will cost $2,32'!)_;a dozen more,  or $97.50 more in a year.

At no time in the   history    of   the  Slocan  district  has    there  been  1,000  men employed underground, and there  are not 5Q0 men! so employed today; but ,  for    the   purposes of comparison, the  higher number will be taken, and if so  it goes to show that the Slocan mine-  "towners would save a paltry.^13,376, were  powder, candles, "mine^r'ails^ drill   steel, ���,_  picks,  and  shovels    all  admitted-tfu'tK't*'*  free.   On the other hand, were the price  of lead enhanced rone-eighth of a cent  a pound by increasing the duties on lead  and lead products,  the mine-owners of  the  Slocan,  on  a yearly production ' of  30,000 tons Of ore carrying 50 per cent  lead,  would, gain  $75,000.  Which . policy  is  the  better  for the  Slocan silver-lead' mine-owners?  GOLD AND SILVER NOT IN; IT.  There was a time in Nelson    when  every man met expected to be a capitalist through .owning placer ground on  Hall creek.   Next came.the Slocan discoveries, and they -.were all on velvet  through  owning interests in ihe highest grade silver-lead mines in the world. "  A slight depression for a- year^qr.tyq..  followed, when of a sudden. ftqssland's,  iron-cap   mines   made " millionaires''of-  hundreds   through : the    ownership ,;of *"  shares in companies whose only assets *  were stock certificates.   Since then our  people  have  settled    down  to   taking  things easy, until    lately.    Now every  other man met on Baker street is either-  a coal baron or an iron king;'gold an4-��,  siIvernotbeingin.it.  uses     than  HAS FAITH IN THE BIG_BEND-,  "���^"Jolfn" Sauirdersoh"writes"The Tribune'""  from Revelstoke, under date if the 16th  instant, that he and his partners who  have been mining in the Big Bend for  a number of years, have made all  arrangements to work hydraulic ground  in the spring on a large scale, and closes  his letter with the following cheering  words: "The Big Bend will come cut all  right yet."   Nothing like faith, John.  Bear Stories and Other StorM as Told by Historian Collins  No talk of the old-timers of Nelson would  .be complete without a reference to Jimmie  Grey. Jimmie was one of tho members  of our first union. "He did a lot of careful prospecting: along ID-Creek, and made  a number of locations, but it was not as  a prospector that Jimmie was best known.  He was the first fiddler to strike the camp,  "aiid-his~ffi"wifii)lisirfi*^Tts^"n_"tlie musical"  way gave him an entry Into tlie best society in the Jays when the social hops  were held In the dining- rooms of the  hotels! and when it was necessary to round  up all the women in the camp in order to  have a couple of sets of lancers.  Being for years the center of all tlie merriment one would have thought Unit  Jimmie would acquire a cheerful disposition, but such wa.s far from being the  ease. Jimmie hail an Idea that the Al-  . mighty had not given him a square deal,  and to hear him tell tt melancholy had  certainly marked him for her own. One  of Jimmlc's fancies was Unit lie was In  very poor health, and a chance question  as to how he felt would always tap a  half column of the symptoms that are  thrown in to sell patent medicines.  There was one rather good story told  of Jimmie. His funds had got rather low,  and it became noceessary for him to go  to work. An Intimate friend of his was  In charge o{ the Noble Five mine at the  time, and Jimmie had always boasted that  whenever he really wanted it the job was  there for. him. But Jimmie did not relish  work any more than most men do castor  oil. and he put it oft until his credit was  shot as  full  of holes as a  printer's meal  1 ticket. Then he made a start for the Noble  Five. On the way to the mine Jimmie  met his friend, coming down the trail  bound for ICaslo. His friend's greeting was  as cordial as one could wish, but it was  rounded out with an enquiry as to Jim-  mie's health. The fiddler was feeling even  more depressed than usual that morning,  and he poured forth a tale of suffering  that could-discount_jtnythlnga_ey_er=geen_In..  print. Jimmie's friend listened patiently,  and when he finished bid him goodbye  and started along the trail. By this time  Jim remembered he had not made known  the object of his trip, and in a burst of  unexpected energy he shouted after him  Unit ho had come up to secure a job at the  mine. "What," replied his friend incredulously, "you don't want to work, Jimmie.  A man as sick as you are should be in a  hospital, and not in a mine." And with  that he struck out for Kaslo again, and  left Jimmie standing dumbfounded on the  trail.  Grey has not been around Nelson for a  number of years. Me moved out with the  passing of the Hush times, and never came  back. He kept stop with the prosperity  which attended the opening up of the  several camps throughout the Slocan, and  dually drifted off to Dawson where he was  last   heard   from.  P. H. Hope wa.s one of Ihe few men in  tlie camp who got along without a nickname. He was p. If. Hope to everybody,  and none presumed sufficiently upon familiarity even to cut off his initials. No  one seemed to know where Hope came  from, or what ho had done for his living.  Ho was rather sclenced with his hands,  however, and in some wey the story got  around that he had been a prize fighter.  Mope  never made any claims to recogni  tion upon this score, but there was a general disposition on the part of those who  came in contact with him to make way  for the big fellow. One night Hope and  Billy Perdue got jangling in John Ward's  saloon, which in those days stood near  the corner of Ward and Vernon streets.  Perdue was not afraid of anything that  stood on two feet, and it was not long  .before^he^and-^I-lope.���werc-=into=i t���roughs  and tumble. Perdue got the best of his  man, and by the time he had finished  drubbing him Hope's stock as a fighter  wasn't worth quoting. Perdue wa.s the  cock of the walk, nnd the only regret he  expressed was that he had not got in his  best licks while he was at it. The praises  of his friends were Billy's undoing, lie  could not let well enough alone, and started after Hope a second time. Hope wa.s  content to retire a beaten man, and kept  out of Perdue's way as long as he could,  but Billy was insistent, and in the end  got the opportunity ho was looking for.  At least this was what Billy thought at  the lime. Ho started In at Hope as If it  was child's work lie was up against, but  the quiet fellow had been warmed up and  his big mitts stopped all Billy's rushes.  The second bout had not much more than  got started until Hope commenced to do  businoss with Billy, and every time tho  big fellow landed Billy was jolted as il'  he hnd been kicked by a mule. Inside of  a minute Hope had given us an illustration of all the fancy blows known to the  fighters of the period, and Billy was on  the floor taking the count for keeps.  Perdue always held that Hope hit him  with a chunk of ore, but those of us who  were looking on agreed that Billy was a  little dazed, and wa.s not in a position to  know   just   what   struck   him.    Hope   did  not remain in the camp very, long, and  when he left we knew no more where he  had gone to than we, knew where he had  come  from  in  the  first place.  Mike Kealey is one of the old-timers  who is with us yet, and he and Mickey  Monaghan are still prospecting over  ground which off and on has received their  attention for ten years past. In tlie early  'days^thcre=were^a-=bunch==ofHMikes=iwho=  worked more or less together, but saving  jVIike O'Brien and Mike Egan most of the  others have gone. Kealey was noteworthy  for two things���the facility with which  he could place undeveloped properties, and  tlie variety of experiences he had with  bears while out prospecting. Ono of his  best bear stories is told by himself. At  one time there were plenty of hears in  the mountains round about Nelson, and  one morning, as Kealy. wa.s making his  way from the Silver King to the Tough-  nut basin, he got the material for his  story. He had come to a big cedar log,  and was In the act of getlng over It  when n large bear reared up from the opposite side, not more than a couple of  feet from him. The bear gave a snort  of astonishment right in iMIke's face, and  Mike says the snort lie gave in the bear's  face was astonishment too. Then he made  a run for it down the hill. His font  caught in a snag and wrenched his ankle.  He fell, hut swears he never slopped going  until ho had covered a good mile. Then  he ventured to look, and wa.s greatly relieved to find the bear travelling as tight  as lie could go on the opposite slope, anil so  far as ho know the boar had not stopped  to venture a look in his direction. Mike  says he will never forget the sensations  that stirred him as he <*��light that whiff  of   the   bear's   breath,   and   thinks   if   the  bear would tell the truth he would say  the same of the hot air he sent into bruin's  whiskers.  There is another bear story that Mike  never tells. This relates to a little experience he and 1 had while prospecting in  the soutli belt in the Rossland camp. 1  had. .left Mike very comfortable in camp  while I made a trip to Kossland. to be  Ig.oneJi:a"iC'OUplea=of"daysr-but"=the~"morniii'r"  after my arrival I was surprised to see  Mike put in an appearance, vevy much  worried. "What are you doing in town?"  was the question I fired at him as soon  as he came up. "Be Jesis, and you'd be  here too if you happened to wake up and  find a hear camped at the Hap of your  tent, and one that was as persistent as a  collector ot bad debts." We went back  to the camp next day and found the  bear had eaten most of our grub, anil  what ho could not eat had been scattered  ull over the ground. Mike did not mind  the loss of the grub very much, and In-  would willingly have paid the price nf il  all If he could have concealed the slit in  the hack of the tent, through which he  had taken a short cut to town when he  found out who the visitor was at the front.  Charlie Malley was one of the old guard,  lie used to work up at the Silver King  until they cqmmenced to contract th>'  miners out of everything but their grub.  and then he moved to the Couer d'Alenes.  Most of the boys had their light In the  early days, and as lighting was one of the  few forms of entertainment open to us  wo generally managed lo crowd a man  into a row. no matter how unwilling he  might be at the start. Mutiny's light wa.s  handed out to him by Malt Kelly. The  two had some words In the Silver King  hotel,   and    the   outcome   of   It   was   that  Kelly, following the French code of honor,  issued a challenge to Mai Icy to fight,  and we all trooped out after the principals to see the fun. There was a little  knoll in front of the hotel, and Malley  held that as he wus the challenged party  he had the right to select his ground.  Anyway he took it, and, when Kelly came  up to dispossess him, Malley__let,^o*_t_hjjt,  -rigli"i~ftTO'"~17F6ugiit Matt to the ground  with the ease of a professional. Malley  then made the mistake of getting Into  close range with Kelly, in the hope of  finishing him, but Kelly had a bear's hug,  and after he had closed his arms around  Malley for a minute or two tlie valiant  fighter did not have any more form than  a punctured  bicycle  tire.  Malley was one of the many prospectors  who have nursed visions of lost mines,  and have built air castles on Ihe chances  of finding them. But Mnlley's lost mine,  differed from most of those one reads  about In that it was found. The mine  that Malley was in search of"wai- one  Pea vine Jimmie had discovered' oh Summit creek in ISfJI, while lie was taking  part in tile rush to the placer diggings  on Wikl Horse creek, In Hast Kootenay.  I'eavine never gave much thought to the  discovery lie had made until tlie remarkably rich assays were made on some  curious dark looking ore found In .the  Silver King. The samples ho had seen  from the Silver King looked very similar  to the rock he had round in 'ill on Summit creek, and I'eavlne made arrangements  with Malley to go in search of It. Alalley  was very much elated over the prospect  of finding the lost mine, and the more he  thought of it tlie richer the mine became.  A.s the time approached for the making  of the  trip  Malley became even  more ex  cited over the subject, and waking or  sleeping his thoughts' were all on the lost  mine. This accounted for my getting ln  on the deal, as, a few days before the  date set for his meeting with Peavlne.  Malley got up in his sleep to hunt for the  mine and walked out of the door on the  second floor of the Silver King hotel,  jvhi_h=had=not=becn=completed~atr^the-  time. Fearing he would not be able to  meet Peavlne, Malley told me about the  lost mine, and got me go in from tht��  Kootenay river side and hunt along Summit creek for it. I had heard u great  deal about the find some years before,  and was just a.s anxious a.s any one to  find it. 1 was three weeks on the creek  when I struck ft. It wa.s an 18-inch ledge,  but tho black ore which Peuvine fancied  might be so rich wa.s magnesium, which  was scattered through the galena. A day  or so after f hud found tho ledge Peavlne  and Malley came Into camp over the  Salmon slope. When he learned that the  lost mine had been found, Peavlne was the  most pleased man I ever saw, and he went  to an old stump nearby and dug up some  samples of ore lie had planted when he  made the first discovery in ���<M. But when  Malley and I told him that the find was  not worth the price of recording, old  Peavlne was very much crestfallen. We.  had some assays made on the ore but  the best We could got was about tive  ounces silver. The lost mine Is there yet.  anil some time when I have nothing else  to do I am going to take a trip down to  Victoria and organize another treasure  trove expedition. I can skin the Cocos  island business because 1 can at least  deliver the goods, which is more than wo.*  accomplished by the promoters at the  capital.  HENRY ROSE HANGED YESTERDAY FOR THE MURDER OF JOHN COLE LAST JUNE  Henry Rose was hanged in the jail  yard at Nelson yesterday morning at  three minutes past 8 o'clock. The execution was witnessed by 30 people, including the sheriff and jail officials. Rose  maintained that he was innocent of the  crime for which he paid the extreme  penalty of the law, and some of the jail  officials seem to be of the same opinion;  but if Rose did not. kill Cole, who did?  There was no hitch in the proceedings, Radcliffe. the profesisonal hangman of Canada, being the executioner.  Rose left, his cell at 7.57, and was accompanied to the scaffold by Rev. father  Althoff of the Catholic church, and by  no outward sign did he show fear. The  following statement,    signed  by Rose.  was read on the scaffold by the reverend  father:  "I die willingly, because it is God's  will. I have made my peace with Him.  My innocence may be, I pray God,  proved some day. For all that, I forgive  those who are the cause of my being  here. If I have offended anyone, I beg  forgiveness. I bid good-bye to all. I  would like to say more, but make it  short, because it is hard to me to stand  here longer. I thank all who have been  kind to me in my last days."  This statement had been signed by  Rose in the presence of warden Lemon  and Rev. father Althoff.  Besides Rose and the reverend father,  sheriff  Tuck,  hangman    Radcliffe and  two jail guards wore on the scaffold.  Those present had a full view of the  platform of the scaffold, but all below  the platform was hid from view by  canvas. Underneath the scaffold was a  pit four feet deep. The drop was 7V_  feet, and there was not. a twitch on the  rope after  the  body    dropped.  Twenty minutes after the trap was  sprung the jail surgeon, Dr. G. A. B.  Hall, pronounced life extinct., and the  black flag was run up from the staff on  the main portion of the jail building,  and remained flying for an hour.  The jurors who viewed the body after  it had been cut. down, were W. F. Hani-  ford. Fred .Bosquet, Arthur Poole. A.  Tregillus, A. J. Marks and H. I-I. Avery.  They returned the usual verdict in such  cases, and the certificate for the burial  of the body was delivered to the sheriff  and by him handed over to tlie warden  of the jail.  The burial, which took place within  the jail enclosure, was conducted with  the rites of tho Roman Catholic church,  and when the body had been lowered  into the grave, tlie lid of the box containing it was removed, and 500 pounds  of lime were packed around the remains  and tlie work of destruction was Vioni-  menced. By 10.'l(i o'clock the grave1 had  been filled up and everything pertaining  to the execution had been cleared away.  Those who were present, at tlio burial  v.-cic father Althoff, J. A. Patcnnudo, J.  Harwood, F. W. Laing, John McAlman  and R. E. Lemon, the warden of tlie  jail. The pallbearers were John Dooley,  C. W. Wilson, J. Lyle. August. Christ,  John Matson, and W.  II. Jones.  SHORT NARRATIVE AS TO ROSE.  Henry Hose was a man of HI years, and  had he embraced tlie opportunities which  presented themselves to him could have  been a very well educated man. His  father was al one time a very wealthy  resident of the city of Ottawa, but early  in the youth of Hose his parents moved  to Montreal, whore they lived up till  their death. The r!.-:il h of the father nf  Rose occurred Ii. year ago. Rose received the news of his d>-;illi  through  the firm  of lawyers who had charge of the estate.  At this lime Rose had two brothers and  one sister living. The estate realized,  $5ii.iHln and Rose advised tlie lawyers to  distribute his share among his brothers  nml sisters. He says ho wa.s at the time  employed by the Deleware Mining Company, having charge of the copper properties on lake (Jhnmpliiin which the company were developing. The reasons he  gave for refusing to share In the division  of his father's estate were that at that  time he was himself a comparatively rich  man. counting himself worth In money  and property about J.TOO.fiOO. One of the  odd things In the story of his life, as told  by himself. Is that after he gave up his  share of his father's estate Rose never had  :my     further     conimiiii!en.tlon     with     his  brothers or his sister, and consequently  did not know whether they were alive or  not. Some time after this Rose says he  was sent by the company in whose employ  he was to open up the well known Dele-  ware copper mine on lake Champlain, New  York   state.  Rose never explained just how lie came  to sever his connection with this company  whom he served as manager and foreman,  and he intimated that his coming to British Columbia in 1S90 was in a measure  due to the death of nis young wife who  died in child birth about a year after his  marriage. Neither did he ever explain  what became of the property values which  he had got together. At tho time of his*  coming to this province he says he had  (Continued  on  Page Four.) ��.-.

The worst enemies  Nelson has are the people who send  East for their clothing and groceries  and printing and newspapers, and the  element that comes next in point of badness, is the one that invariably helps  the first-named on election day. Help  those who help you is a good axiom,  and if the people of Nelson would only  practice it for a year, there would be  few vacant houses in the town, and no  necessity for closing-out sales.  miles west of Kaslo, after starting for  California to spend the winter, took a  notion while in Spokane he would like  more adjacent ground to prospect on  next season, and fearing the law would  he changed returned and made some  new locations. During the past season  Mr. Eaton made two miles of trail and  mined seven tons of ore from his claim  with one pole-pick which was never  sharpened. The returns from the smelter gave Mr. Eaton a comfortable stake  for the winter, and he will spend it at  Oakland, California.  ANNOUNCEMENT  The ratepayers of Nelson on Thursday ratified the by-law fixing rates for  electric lighting and power. The vote,  although not large, was pronounced; so  pronounced that the by-law to raise  $150,000 to be expended in installing an  up-to-date plant on Kootenay river need  only be submitted to be carried. The  vote was 101 for to 17 against the bylaw.  HEAD  OFFCE,   TORONTO,  ONTARIO.���Branches in the Northwest Territories, Provinces of British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.

No fault should be found with  people who help those who through ties  of kindred are dependent on them.   It  is a trait that is most commendable. But  fault can be found with people who send  their earnings to department stores in  the Bast,for merchandise   that can he  purchased at home to as good advantage.  The  merchants    and business men of  British   Columbia help  to keep  things  moving.    They give direct employment  .to clerks and indirect employment to  mechanics and laborers.   Without them  there would be few populous towns in  the province.    The wages paid  clerks  and  mechanics    and    laborers in this  province are   fully 50 per cent higher  than the wages paid clerks and mechanics and laborers in Ontario and Quebec.  If these people obtain 50 per cent more  for their labor than they could obtain  in the East, it is not unfair to assume  that they    can   afford to pay   higher  prices for what they consume and wear.  Why should the business man in Nelson  pay a clerk $100 a month, and have that  clerk buy his supplies from a merchant  in Toronto who pays his clerks ?50 a  month?   Why should the mechanics and  laborers expect those who employ them  in Nelson to pay wages ranging from  $2.50 to $4 a day, while they patronize  Eastern people who pay mechanics and.  The first issue of The Tribune appeared on Thursday, November 24th, 1892���  ten years ago.    Its owners then were  John Houston, W. J. McKay, and C. V.  Dake.   Its owner now is John Houston.  Its owners iu 1S92 had no capital.   Its  owner now has less.   The Tribune then  was printed on a good   grade of hook  paper from  hand-set type.    It is now  printed on a good grade of news print  from machine-set type. The printer who  set its "a"ds" then is setting its "ads"  now.   The "ads" then were those of the  Bank of Montreal, James McDonald &  Co.,  John    Houston & Co.,    Hamilton  Powder Company, W. A. Jowett, Wilson  & Perdue,    J.  &  J.   Taylor, . Fred. J.

Next summer will not only see the  completion of the Nelson & Fort Shep-  pard railway, but see a fleet of the finest  and speediest steamboats ever afloat on  any waters. It is the intention of the  Columbia & Kootenay Steam Navigation  Company to build a boat, to run between  Nelson and Kaslo, that will make 20  miles an hour; a boat that will easily  make two round trips a day if the trade  warrants it. The hull will be of steel  and manufactured in Philadelphia.  JOHN HOUSTON, Proprietor  laborers $1.25 to $2.25 a day? Why  should the dry goods merchant of Nelson patronize the grocery merchant of  Nelson, when the latter allows his wife  to buy everything slie uses from T.  Eaton & Co. of Toronto? Why should  the newspapers of Nelson work night  and day, week in and week out, in advertising the resources of the country  and " the merits of Nelson's business  houses,>,when these business houses get  the bulk'of their oflice stationery from a  cheap job-shop in Toronto and never  subscribe for a local paper? The way  to build up a town and a country is to  help those who are doing the building.  Chinese methods will not do this, and  all the Chinese in British Columbia do  not wear pigtails.  MAIL FACILITIES DURING THE  WINTER.  Postmaster Gilker of Nelson has been  instructed by postoffice inspector Fletcher to employ the Wilson & Perdue  packtrain to carry the mails as soon as  the steamers on the Columbia quit  running. Three trips will be made'every  two weeks between Nelson and North-  port. Nothing definite is yet known as  to the route over which the mails will  be forwarded to New Denver. At present the people of New Denver have a  miserable service via Nakusp.  TOWNSITES GALORE.  Town lots in Kaslo are selling like hot  c^e^ic^a^fjp^y^morning.___vV:atson_and:  Bear Lake make a close following. Additions are being platted to Kaslo, and  when the snow disappears the limits ot  Watson will be extended. Commodore  Davies of the "Mud Hen" is. at Kaslo  preparing to put the Nagle-Davies town-  site of Lardo on the market. Enough  "future great" cities have been staked  on the Lardo and Duncan rivers to  swamp the financial world if each  "choice lot" was sold.  "Editorial and Business Offlce  Room 9, Madden Block.  The Nelson Tribune is served by carrier  to subscribers ln Nelson or sent by mail  to any address in Canada or the United  States, for one dollar a year; price to Great  Britain, postage paid, 51.50. No subscription taken for less than a year.  - SATURDAY,   NOVEMBER  22,  1902  The postoffice returns show that $938,-  442.03 were sent out of the province in  postoffice money orders for the year  ending June 30th, 1902, in excess of the  amount paid for cashing postoffice  money orders at postoffices in the province. It is difficult to obtain data as to  where this money goes; but it is safe to  assume that the bulk of It .goes to eastern department stores in payment of  goods and to dependent relations of our  wage-earning people. Of that sent to dependent relations, some of it goes to foreign countries like Sweden   and   Italy,  The pastors of Spokane are preaching  against public gambling, and the church  element is attempting to suppress that  recognized and admitted evil. At every  civic election held in Nelson, the church  element has worked hand in glove with  the element that favored public gambling, and has even gone as far as to  post scurrilous notices on church doors  regarding candidates who were pledged  to keep public gambling from getting a  foothold in Nelson.  A merchant tailor, who has been in  business in Nelson for a number of  years, advertises that he is closing out,  and while he does not make the state-  men in his closing-out announcement,  he says that it is impossible to do business in Nelson because so many of the  prominent professional and business  men buy their clothes in the East. Yet,  this same merchant tailor, when he had  a chance at the polls to get even with  these prominent professional and business men, invariably supported them as  against men who purchased all of their  NOT    DESERTED BY  ANY    MEANS.  About 30 men are at work in Trail  Creek district, and   that   number will  probably   be   kept at work all winter.  The wagon road up Sheep creek from a  point opposite Northport is completed,  and supplies for the mines are now being  hauled over it.   Several .interests in the  camp have been acquired by D. C. Corbin, president of the Spokane & Northern railway, his latest purchases being  the Standard and Yellow Jacket from  Charley Drouin, one of the discoverers  of the Lucky Jim, a famed mine near  Bear Lake in Kaslo-Slocan district. A.  M. Esler, the well-known Montana mining man, recently paid the camp a visit,  and is reported as willing to take up  the bond he has on tbe Josie.   Two different parties have contracts on the Le  Roi; one for driving a tunnel, the other  for sinking a shaft.    The Centre Star  tunnel is in solid ore.   Men are at work  on the O. K., a gold proposition that is  reported  as looking well.    Trail Creek  will yet be heard from, and that, too, as  a producer of the first rank.  LOCAL NEWS AND GOSSIP.  G. B. AVright, head pusher of the  Ainsworth townsite and only boomer  left in that camp, is out at Spokane  looking after interests that will yet  make him a rich man.  "Hi" Sweet left Nelson this week on a  hurried visit to relatives in Alabama.  C. M. Getting, a New Denver hotel  man, passed through Nelson on Tuesday on his way to Spokane, where he  intends to spend a couple of weeks.  Kaslo, Nelson, and Pilot Bay are not  the only trade centres in the lower half  of West Kootenay district. Trail Creek  boasts of a firm���Topping & Hanna���  that brings in supplies in carload lots.  While acting as "bouncer" for a salooi?  at Kaslo, one night this week, Georgo  Henry Fisher, a local celebrity, broke  Dick Hughes's leg.  On her Tuesday trip the steamer Nelson left Nelson with 40 tons of freight  and 60 passengers for points on the lake.  i. .      ���  The steamer W. Hunter is reported as  doing a nice business on Slocan lake. If  she had been completed in May last, as  her projectors expected, she would have  been a small bonanza.  Material for the Church of England  church is now on the ground at Balfour.  ;.- W. J. Goepel, of the Nelson Sawmill  Company, left for his old stamping  ground���Victoria���this^ week.. He will  winter at Nelson, however.  The rough and, broken weather of the  last two weeks has retarded the building of the telephone line, between Ainsworth and Kaslo. The central office at  the latter place will be in working  order within .ten days.  Pilot Bay's only wholesale merchant,  H. Byers, Jr., reports business fairly  good at that trade centre. The work of  placing the machinery in the Farrel-  Hendryx smelter buildings is steadily  progressing.  The Tribune for one year will be  .awarded..the.Nelson man who keeps his  sidewalk in the best condition during  the coming winter. H. Selous says he  will surely win it.  M. D. Mahoney, of the Palace hotel at  Kaslo, is seriously thinking of quitting  the hotel business and starting a hat  store. Mike is a Democrat, and won  500 hats on Cleveland's election, to say  nothing of $35 in cash from the good  but foolish Republican that penned this  paragraph.  Tlie weekly dances given by the Nelson Social Club are the only social  events worthy of note happening in  Nelson. The dance last night was at-  tended^by ^Mrsr"Archie=="Fletcher"i=i"of"*  Kaslo, Mrs. Hointz, Mrs. Phillips, Mrs.  Clark, Mrs. Corning, the Misses Corning,  Miss Duhamel, Miss Kelly, Miss Johnson and about twenty gentlemen.  Hugh. Madden, ably assisted by Gorman West, is putting up a building for  a hotel at Bear Lake City.  E. R. Atherton has his store at Watson ready for occupancy, and has goods  on the way up from Kaslo.  Good progress is being made on the  sleigh road between Nakusp and the  head of Slocan lake, a distance of 20  miles. Contractor Hugh Mann says he  will have it completed in the time stipulated.  W. C. Ward, manager of the Victoria  branch of the Bank of British Columbia,  is in Nelson, seeing to it that the bank's  new agent of the Nelson branch (Mr.  Holt) gets off right foot foremost.

Oftiee and Warehouse,  Josephine Street,  NELSON, B. C. The Nelson Tribune  A BOY'S FIRST VISIT TO A COURT-ROOM  HE BLUNDERED BY TELLING THE TRUTH  Tall and ungainly, young and self-  . conscious, he walked into the crowded  courtroom, fresh from the law school,  utterly without advice or experience.  His pale boyish features wore the flush  of knowledge, hut it was the painful  knowledge that everyone was looking at  him. Convinced that, he was creating an  unusual stir among the old and staid  lawyers, the straight-laced bailiffs,  and the habitual hangers-on, he took a  seat at one of the broad tables and  . assumed that posture of importance attained only by extreme youth.  By his side was another youth, not  over 16, fair, ruddy-cheeked .and comely,  it may seem strangely coincident .that,  on the day Edward Gray first entered  the courtroom as a full-fledged attorney,  his younger brother should "he there as  a witness���a witness in a- case wherein  a man was being tried for forgery. The  brothers had gone to the courtroom to-  .gether, the elder leading the way witl*  the importance of his position, the  younger following in some trepidation,  rull of inquiry as to how he should act,  what he should do. With superior indifference the attorney replied gruffly  affording the earnest interrogator but  little satisfaction, no consolation, and  the assurance that he was going into  a place where but the greatest of men  could enter.  '"������ When Frank Gray stepped into the big  courtroom for the first time in his life  he knew no more of its etiquette than  if he had been an untutored savage. His  magnificent brother, uponr -'whom he  looked with respect and awe, had told  him nothing, except that it was the  home of justice, of truth, and of dignity. Little did he know that the  strutting attorney at whose Jieels he  tagged was filled with a fear and trembling in comparison with whicli his own  was but a trifling matter. Ignorant as  'was the honest country lad, raw-'from  the -district school, unlearned in the  ".v'ays of the great city proudly known as  the country seat of a community whose  total population did not exceed 50,000, he  was not half so crude as the mighty brother felt himself at heart. His dignity  was assumed, his'importance the-fruit  of a determined ambition, his superiority as feeble in reality as the years  which marked his bare majority. But he  assumed, he acted all three with the  desperation of an unpractised intelligence; he distressed himself with the  ���wish that he could he seen for all he  was worth, that he could display in himself all that had taken others a lifetime  to achieve���ability.   Such is youth.  The cause on trial was of considerable  prominence. A cashier, holding a responsible position in a large mercantile  establishment, had forged the name of  a customer and liad drawn the-money,  intending to replace it and destroy the  check before discovery. His plans had  . gone awry, and he was arrested. Frank  Gray, the boy, was in the store when the  sergeant of police served the warrant on  -the forger,-and heard every word of the  conversation which passed between  them. He was subpoenaed by the defendant, who wished by him tp disprove  certain allegations made'by the officer.  The boy was alarmed at the prospect,  dreaming for nights before of the ordeal  through which he expected to pass on  that awful day when he faced the court.  His brother merely���and sharply���instructed him to see that nothing but the  truth was told���"the whole truth and  nothing but the truth."  The lad's honest, wondering blue eyes  had barely become accustomed to the  strangeness of his surroundings, when  he was- suddenly startled by hearing his  brother's name called out in the metallic, rasping tones of the court's voice:  "Any motions, Mr.��� Mr.���" (here the  court leaned over and asked the nearest  bailiff a question) "Mr. Gray?"  "None, your���your honor," came the  wee small voice of the mighty brother,  notwithstanding the ponderous effort  put forth to make the tones loud and  firm  "TbienTbailiff, you may call the case  of the State vs. Royal."  The usual preliminaries were rushed  through, the indictment read, and the  opening statement made by the prosecuting attorney before Frank quite understood what was happening. Several  witnesses were introduced, examined,  and cross-examined, proving the fact  that the signature was a forgery, and  then the police sergeant was called to  the stand.  The ollicer was asked to detail or tc  give in substance Hie conversation .  which had passed between him and  Royal, the accused man. By this time-  young Gray was deeply interested, his  ruddy face the picture of rapt attention.  He drank in every word of the sergeant's story, approving it as remarkably accurate. In fact, lie could hardly  comprehend how the man remembered  everything so clearly. His learned brother apparently ignored the case on trial,  looking over the pages of a volume of  reports with a very intellectual frown  between his eyes.  ���'You may state, sergeant Greeting, if  possible, the exact reply of the defend1  ant when you asked what cause required  him to secure the money at that particular time," asked the counsel for the  state.  "You want me to give his very  words?"  "Yes, sir; if you can."  "Well, he said this: 'I just had to  have $35 that night. I liad been  gambling and had to pay my losses or  be kicked out of the club���I belong to  tlie 'Bear club.'' "  Frank heard this statement with  growing wonder. He straightened up in  his chair, and allowed his astonished  eyes to wander from the witness to the  prisoner, on whose face there was a look  oi hopeless misery. Then his own  sturdy frame stiffened, his honest blue  eyes flashed from beneath a flushed  brow, and his strong young voice cried  out  boldly:  "He didn't say that at all.    He said  tt  "Silence!" shouted the astonished  court, and two bailiffs hurried toward  the dissenter threateningly. His brother half started from his chair with  the shock he had received, his cheek  Hushing and then blanching, as if a sort  of terror had seized upon his heart.  "I ask to have this young man ejected  from the courtroom," cried the state's  attorney, sputtering in amazement. The  sergeant of police looked guiltily defiant, the prisoner's ��� face lit up, and a  whole courtroom full of people strained  their necks to see the owner of-the disturbing voice.  ���'Well, he lied, that's all! Mr. Royal  didn't say that���he said he had to have  it because his wife had been sick ..two  months and the doctor wouldn't come to  see her any more if he didn't pay him.  I heard him say it, judge," cried Frank,  his heart now beating with a fright  which strove to overpower the truth  that struggled to his indignant lips.  "Take him from the room, sheriff!  I never heard of such impudence,"  cried the outraged judge, "I never did in  ail my life." .7.  "But I'm a witness," stammered  Frank, a surly resentment taking possession of him. He was looking at the  court manfully. ;  "That's enough, sir! Is it possible that  you do not know enough to observe  order in a courtroom? Where do you  come from? I shall attend to your case  in a few .moments, sir. You'cannot disturb the order of-, this court with im-"  punity���wliy, I never heard of such a  thing;" blustered the judge, and to see  his expression was to believe him.  By this time the young fellow's face  was white and drawn. Humiliation was  stamped all over his crushed, drooping  person. Still the boyish indignation"  and resentment would not down, his  pride was cut. to the quick,- his very  heart cried out within him. A sharp  glance at the white fade of his brother  ���a glance which was a prayer for help  ���showed him that he was alone in tlie  fight; the ally was trembling and his  eyes were rivetted on the floor. As the  court concluded his last exclamation the  boy's lips trembled, his teeth clashed together suddenly, and his angry voice  'rang out with:  "Oh, I don't care, you darned old  fool."  Imagine the consternation this, rash  retort produced. There followed a moment's silence, like unto the space which  intervenes between the flash of lightning  and the clap of thunder. Scores of eyes  peered at the bowed, stubborn head of  the boy, whose face was red and twitching; then they turned toward the court,  upon V5hose turkey red features grew  the blue of rage. His eyes were glaring  down upon the boy ominously; his back  was very straight; the cords in his neck  were strained and hard with the tension his anger imposed.  "Young man," he began, and then  stoppe^to^]ear^^lump_^ofjvrathi.fi'oma  his throat. "Young man, you have  committed an indiscretion which cannot  be overlooked; you have insulted this  court; you have outraged this bench of  justice. In sheer amazement I realize  that you.are almost a man and not a  child, as one might suspect from your  rashness,, from your utter indifference  to the consequences which you must  certainly have known would be the  result of your outburst. I do not know  who you are, but you surely have not.  been reared with an absolute disregard  for the respect due to age and to men  who occupy positions such as that held  by this court. To me it looks like pure  viciousness on your part, and I shall certainly teach you the error of your way.  It will be a painful duty for me to fine  you and to send you to jail, but I firmly  believe it is the only course to pursue  where one of your age and apparent intelligence commits an act such as you  have committed."  Frank's  sudden  burst  of  uncontrol-  able weeping i'.iterrupted the court at  this juncture. The poor boy threw his  arms upon the table beside which he  sat; his face was instantly buried upon  them, and his body shook with the most  pitiful sobs. Before the judge could  resume his reprimand, the tall, unsteady  figure of that deserting brother arose,  his embarrassed face turned toward the  bench, his bloodless lips moving stiffly  as if they were uttering words. No  sound, however, came from them. There  was a supreme effort put forth. One  hand clutched the back of the chair  against which his stiff legs braced themselves, and these words came out in  strange, .unnatural tones, clear and  strong, as if some unusual power produced them:  "Your honor, I beg your indulgence  for a moment. You certainly will listen  to a weak appeal for leniency before you  too severely condemn my brother���my  ignorant, impulsive brother. If a penalty  must be inflicted for the dishonor shown  to this court, I feel that all the punishment should fall upon another and more  deserving head.    Your honor, upon me  should be cast all the blame, all the indignant reproaches    brought about by  this unfortunate occurrence.    It was I  %vho, knowing full well the conduct he  should have pursued during the hours  when   justice   reigns, refused, through  an unbrotherly    exaltation of my own  superiority, to respond    to   his    eager  questions when he sought for information.    I revelled in my knowledge and  in his ignorance.    He had never seen  a  courtroom  before;   knew  nothing of  its rules, its exactions.   In my miserable  heart I felt that I was. unkind to- him,  but my foolish pedestal was too high to  allow me to come down to him in his  helplessness.   It was, perhaps,- an added  fault of mine that I told him to tell the  truth only while here;   a fault,  I say,  your honor, because he needed no such  caution,  no such insult from one who  knows his virtues as I Know them. He  has never told aI lie,'thatT swear.   Not  all the power on earth could make my  brother    utter   a   falsehood.    What he  interposed during the testimony of that  witness was true, absolutely true, or he  would not have said it.   His blunder in  crying out was due to his own uncovered honesty and to my injunction to tell  the truth.   He did not know the rules;  lie  knew  nothing,  may it please your  honor, save that a lie was being told,  and his heart cried out the truth.   I am  to blame for his first mistake.   For the  second���the insult to the court���nature  itself must be held accountable.   I ask  you;'to go back to the- day   when you  .were of his age, the years when youth-  fur pride    overruled    discretion, jiidg-������  ment���everything.   Place yourself in his  position, your heart bursting with injury to  your boyish  pride,  filled with  that young anger, turbulent/resentment  and youthful horror, of ridicule stirring  every fiber, and how would you have  felt it?   He, with the unfortunate courage, of, ignorance, blurted    out his ill-  suppressed feelings; you Y>'ould have felt  as he did, you-might have done as he  did.    I .leave    that to the considerate  remembrance of your own boyish impressions.   Remember, your honor, the  heat of your despairing anger when you,  as a hoy, were subjected to sharp criticism,  merited. or  not;. whether  before  the eyes of others or not; whether by  age    or    youth.    Remember,  sir,  your  resentment even against    your father,  your best of friends, the    mother you  now hold so dear, and then put yourself  in this boy's place... Can. you again feel  the insufferable rankling of pride"'��� of  scorned immaturity in your heart���you,  a judge of men and all their emotions?  Go back, your honor, to the days when  your very soul burned with the fires of  resentment,    and    have    pity  on  this  offender.   He is innocent of a wrong intention.    He would not show the least  dishonor to you or to any man on earth  had he not felt that a man���that prisoner���was being harshly treated.   He is  honest; he is a boy, a boy such as you  were ;^such_as_all^of^these-men���were;-  such as I am who speak to you.   I ask  you not to punish him, for he would  never forget the disgrace.    I ask you  to   suspend    further     reprimand    and  allow me to take him from the room  until he is asked to come and tell his  honest story under  oath.    What more  you might say to him    could   have no  more weight than what you have said.  Your flrst command, 'Silence!' crushed  him.    It was sufficient for the tender,  untried    heart.    He feels as you    felt  when you were a boy, your honor."  The stiff figure relaxed, the pleading  white face dropped forward, as if unsupported; the tall frame sank into the  chair, and the advocate's first plea was  over. Tears stood in the eyes of the  court, a glow of sympathy went around  the room, a clapping of hands arose  from the reminiscent old lawyers, and it.  was evident that the young fellow had  won his point.  He did not hear the plaudits, for he  had fainted!  It was claimed that the full detailed report for the quarter would be placed before the finance committee on Friday, so  that it could come up for consideration  at the next meeting of the council.  Chief Lillie of the fire department, who  was present, was asked if the department  really needed the additional 1,000 feet of  hose recommended to be purchased. He  replied he was only protecting his department; that if a big lire should have to  be fought thero was not enough hose on  hand. He thought the hose could he  bought and paid for next year, as  It could not be delivered much before  January 1st next. The finance committee  will consider the question still further.  Alderman Irving called tlie attention of  the council to the slow progress that was  being made in laying tlie sidewalks ordered to be put down. He said that if a  cold snap came the work would have to be  suspended, and he could see no good reason why the force should be limited to  a  foreman  and  one  man.  Mayor Fletcher said he had called the  attention' of tlie city engineer to the matter, but that that official did not seem to  agree  with   his  suggestions.  The  mayor  was  instructed   to  see  that  the sidewalks ordered laid were rushed to.  completion,   and   he   said   he   would   obey  the instructions to the letter.   ,-  The council  then adjourned.

The movement in California looking  to the modification of the Chinese exclusion law, so as to permit of the importation of 10,000 Chinese cooks and domestic servants, gives us an interesting  sidelight on a familiar problem. For  several years in all large cities, as well  as in the suburbs, there have been  complaints of the scarcity of household  help until now it has grown to be a  very serious domestic question. Various things have contributed to this  condition, but the main reason why  girls in this country and those who  come from abroad do not desire to do  household work is because they prefer  employment in stores and factories,  where there is supposed to be more independence and the hours of labor are  shorter.  The views of employers on this subject are familiar to the public, but the  opinions of the employed are seldom  printed. The state labor bureau of  Wisconsin has collected data which  gives direct information why girls prefer to work in factories and stores to  household service. It is easy to comprehend that many are irritated by their  social position, but the folloAving sample  replies: to the bureau indicate other  reasons why the service has become distasteful to thousands of young women:  " "If ladies would only give girls better  rooms, kinder treatment and warmer  be"ds,' and let them lire independently,  more  girls   would  db= housework?'  "I went into the factory because I  wished to be treated like a human  being." '������mA$s$  "Tne reason I won't do housework is  because I will not be treated like half  a slave and always a nobody."  "I" love housework, but, like a host of  :other girls, I refuse to do it under present conditions.".  .  "I am treated better in the factory  in every 'way, and, besides," I am no  longer obliged to entertain in the kitchen or receive-my friends at the back  door, since I can live at home with my  own people."  . In Boston it is contended that even  where higher wages are paid than formerly it. does not cause an increased  liking for household work or make it  easier to engage first-class maids.  In New York-it is said that the compensation remains about the same as it  '. has been for years, and there is so much  difficulty in obtaining servants that  many married people prefer hotel or  apartment house, life. In the apartment  hotels the problem has been solved by  thousands of men and women ,who find  the. service included rflth light; heat  and fuel.' '.'..���.'"'  In large cities more girls are getting  situations in hotels and restaurants.  Although they must pay for their car  fares and lodgings, many of .them-club:  together and-keep their expenses down  to a low figure. Numerous employment  agencies report that while they cannot  supply household "help, they can get  dozens of girls readily for factories out  of town.  The superintendent of the free employment bureau of the state of New  York also reports an inability to supply  families with domestics, and he furthermore makes these observations:  "We have made systematic inquiries  on the other side to see why trained  servants are not forthcoming when the  demand for them in this country is so  tremendous. Many of the Sisters of  Mercy of Ireland take young girls and  teach them the rudiments of cooking,  washing, sewing and other domestic  requirements, and even carry them  along until they may be described as  thoroughly competent. But we found  that the demand for such servants was  so keen on the other side that all who  did not particularly desire to come to  America were snapped up there at home.  "If girls conclude to abandon housework for factory employment, they can  always find work of one sort or another,  for the demand for female" help among  business. men is just as imperative as  the wants of their wives. Every day  we are asked to supply girls and  women for 20 different kinds of manufacturing ��� work. The wages are not  very seductive, and oftentimes the work  is much harder than housework and  more monotonous, and yet the idea of  day work only, free evenings, weekly  pay and the removal of the badge of  servitude and fancied'stigma attached  to houseAVork, attracts them more and  more."  The Boston Globe describes the California proposition to make good the  deficiency of. female help by the importation of Chinese as startling, and  adds: "If the conditions of our domestic service have, come .to be. such that  Ave must send 7,000 miles away for sufficiently servile labor, then it is .full  time that these conditions should be readjusted in accordance with the true  spirit of this country. If we have been  brought to that pass Ave must confess  that there is something wrong with a  civilization that has placed a ban on a  form of labor so important and delicate  as that of domestic service."  John O'Dohnell, Minnesota state commissioner- of labor, has. conipleted his  compilation of the answers received  from domestic servants in the investigation of that problem conducted by  him last winter. <���������  The number of replies received was  not as large as he had hoped, but some  of the answers are most interesting.  Several of those who replied think domestic service better than work in factories, and give their reasons.  .."A woman vvho works in a factory or  store," says one, "has to pay forther  lodgings and hoard, and at^the end of  the Aveek has nothing left of;her wages,  but this ;��� is different with- a domestic  servant, even i_ her pay is small."  Another likes the work because "if a  good servant has common sense she  usually gets her own way."   ,'-.-:  The reasons why domestic service is  unpopular witli the average girl are  many. One says it is humiliating to  enter the house by the back door.7 One  complains because a 'domestic servant  is called a "hired girl." Several state  that it.is because a domestic servant is  never free, while a day worker has her  3ven4ngs and Sundays to herself. 0  Many suggestions are made on how  the domestic servant's condition could  be improved'and the service made more  popular. "More wages and shorter  hours," is the terse reply made by one. !  Another thinks the best plan would be j  for the mistress and servants to change  places for a week; and adds: "We  should have some interesting developments."  The Sunday dinners seem to be a  source of discomfort to servants. One  suggests that employers do not have  all their friends to Sunday dinners. Another says that although the Sabbath,  was probably created for the domestic  servant as. well as for the employer, the  average mistress wants to go to church,  and heaven but doesn't care if the servants go to the other place.  The home    life offered  by domestic..  service   seems to be the principal attraction for those   Avho like the work.  One girl would not quit the service unless she could have a home of her own.  One thinks the chances to secure domestic  service are  better  than  for factory   work.    Another    finds    it -more  respectable than factory   work, and a  third scorns factory life.    One girl admits that it is the only thing she can  do, and several think it more healthful  than factory or store employment. "Because Charlie    likes me to do housework," says one reply, but it does not  explain who Charlie is.  The general testimony of those who  replied is that domestic servants can  save money if they are not extravagant.  One girPsaves $100 out of the $240 she  receives in a year. One saves half her  wages, but says if she is particular to  dress well she cannot save money. Several" have 'small bank accounts.  A knowing one says that "if a girl  likes to go out in the evening and amuse  herself she requires twice the amount of  her wages."  About 85 per cent-of the replies- received, were from servants engaged in,  general housework, who receive from ?2  to $5 per' week; 12 per cent of the replies  were, from cooks, and 3 per cent from  nurses and chambermaids, who get from  $4 to $6 per Aveek.   Of the girls engaged  in general housework 5 per cent receive  -$2 per week; 20 per cent $3 per week;i  20 per cent $3.50;   .22.5 per cent $4; 15 /  per cent $4.50, and 17.5 per cent $5 per  week.  ���The great mass of those who reported  have changed their places of employment  from three to six    times.    Some have  changed from ten to twenty times, and  many do not remember at how many  places they have worked.   Twenty-five  per  cent have been at their    present  places less than three months;  10-per  centless than six months, 15 per cent  between-nine mohthsand a year; 15 per  cent   between   a - year   and    eighteen  months,  15 per cent between eighteen  months and two years, and 5 per cent    ���  from three to six years.    About 25 per  cent had tried other work; 50 per cent  of these receive higher.^wages at domestic service than at otlier Avork; 44 per   .  cent receive lower wages, and 6'per cent  about the same wages.  There are 75 per cent of those that  replied who are furnished with warm-  sleeping rooms; 25 per cent sleep in  rooms that are not heated. Of those  that replied 80 per cent are allowed to  receive friends; at the house where they,  work; 70 per cent recive courteous treatment from employers; 20 per cent unkind treatment, and others fair treatment. .  :___?or-=furlher-^parLicu!arsr���addres8==o!-  apply  to :  JOHN HOUSTON,   j  Room 9, Madden Block, Nelson, B.C.  i  Hotel Phair  I 80 ROOMS j  All -VJocfern Conveniences  Special (fates*to Tourists  e. e. phair  PROPRIETOR  Stanley and Victor    Streets,     NELSON, B.C  Queen's Hotel  BAKER STREET,  NELSON.

Brandon of Silverton says times  are rather quiet on Slocan lake, owing to  the   low   prices   prevailing:   for   lead   and  silver.  i  Fred Fraser, g-overmnent ag-ent at Rovelstoke, was in Nelson on Thursday en  route home from Trout Lake. He reports  four feet of snow at tlio Silver Cup mine  and about four inches at Trout Lake.  On Monday Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Temple-  ton of Vernon street had a son added to  their family; and on the same day, Mr.  and Mrs. Peters of the Hume addition  welcomed  a daughter to  their  househ.old.  The athletic young: girls of Nelson have  organized a basket ball club, and the  club will give exhibition games during the  winter. Basket ball is a sort of a cross  between foot ball and lacrosse and is one  of the most popular of indoor games.  The old and reliable clothing store,  owned by James Gilker and presided over  by "Dannie" McNicholl, has a fine stock  of Irish freize storm overcoats which will  be handed over at retail to customers at  the astonishingly low price of $6 each.  First come, first Choice.  Collector of customs Johnstone has been  requested to'send in a requisition for  desks and other fixtures for his offices in  the new federal building at the corner of  Vernon and Ward streets. It is not likely-  the building will be ready for occupancy  much before July 1st, 1903.  The Northwest, Territories Coal Syndicate Is the name of the latest combination  of local coal barons. The syndicate have  . about 10,000 acres of coal lands in Alberta  and expect to market 1,000 tons of coal  a day.before they begin to draw down dividends. ���'.'������  C. A. Waterman & Co., auctioneers, have  opened permanent auction rooms in the  Hume building on Vernon street, next to-  the new postoffice building, and will hold  sales daily beginning today. Everything  offered will be sold, the only reserve is  that no bid of less than 25 cents'will be  accepted. The stock offered is made up of  clothing, boots, shoes, groceries, and miscellaneous  merchandise.  There has been, a slight change in the  time of arrival and departure of trains  on the Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway  and its southern connections. Trains will  hereafter leave the Union depot for Spokane at 7 _ o'clock in the morning and  Mountain station at 7:50. Trains from  Spokane will arrive at Mountain station  at 7:15 p. m. and at the Union depot at  S o'clock, same time as formerly.  Little that could, be called news  emanated from any of the politicians during the week. One gentleman has positively refused to allow his name to be  used in connection with the mayoralty  contest, and two others say they are  out of the running. It is not likely that  any of the aldermen will seek re-election,  although one of the aldermen is likely to  be a candidate for mayor. Among the  names mentioned for aldermen are Gilbert  -Stanley.���Fred-Smithr^Drr^Roser^Wr^Wr-  Beer, Hamilton Byers, Joseph Bradshaw,  and   David  McKay.  An effort is being made to protect the  consumers of fruit from the unfair practices of eastern dealers. Both the province and Dominion have fruit inspectors,  and both the inspectors have been in Nelson this week. One carload of eastern  apples has been condemned. The apples  were being sold not only under wrong  names, but were packed so as to defraud the purchaser. They were also  very poor quality. A carload of Okanagon  apples were also inspected, but they were  found to be of good quality and honestly  packed and rightly named. As there i.s  no difference in the price, consumers had  better buy apples grown in British Columbia.  FRED IRVINE & CO.

Potter, of Spokane, who manages the Blue Bird, a property at Deer Park, a short distance  above Robson, moved that Mr. Moffatt,  of the Nelson Daily News and Mr.  Mac Adams'of the Sandon Paystreak, the  only representative newspaper men  present, except chairman Keen, be not  allowed to- hear the proceedings, and  the motion had a seconder in S. S.  Fowler, of Nelson. The two newspaper men left the room, and what was  clone at the conference will never be  known unless, chairman Keen tells it in  the Kootenaian. Men who are afraid or  ashamed to discuss a question that  yitally affects...the people of Kootenay  in the presence of reporters . are not  likely to accomplish much in the direction of needed legislation. What Kootenay needs.as much as anything else is  mine managers whose common ..sense is  not hopelessly buried beneath a capping  of self-conscious greatness.  REPORTERS WERE BARRED.  A conference between the mine owners  of the Slocan and W. A. Galliher, M.P.,  was held at Sandon on Thursday and  Friday of this week. The conference  was attended by W. A. Galliher, M.P.,  and S. S. Fowler, of Nelson; John Keen,  editor of the Kaslo Kootenaian; George  Alexander, John L. Retallack, and H.  Giegerieh, of Kaslo; A. L. Fingland of  Three Forks; P. J. Hickey, Oscar  White, N. J.

HENRY ROSE WAS HANGED  (Continued From First Page.)  ���some money, and that for a considerable  time hereafter he was backed in a financial way by certain of the members of  the mining .company with which he had  been connected in the state of New York.  Those who have known Rose for the past  ten years agree that he always seemed  to be able to raise money whenever it was  necessary, although he never appeared  to be flush. Since his advent to the province Rose said he had employed his time  prospecting and in ��� examining properties  and reporting on them for eastern people.  He claimed to have been the discoverer  of the properties ;at present owned by  the London & Richelieu Company at Crawford Bay, the chief of which is the well  known Silver Hill mine, but he admitted  that he was not the locator. During  the boom period of the Rossland camp  he gave considerable attention to the prospects in it, and reported upon several of  JIiem.^=ilRose^claimed=to^hay.e_:mining=:pro==  perties scattered throughout the different  camps of West Kootenay, principally .at  the head of Kettle river, and on Caribou,  McDonald, Beaver and riargeso'n creeks.  He had also taken up a pre-emption opposite to the outlet of the upper Arrow  lake, on which he had made a number of  improvements, but at the trial for the.  murder of Cole he was without money,  and the witnesses for the defence were  all paid by the crown, he being declared  a man without means.  In speaking of the disposition of Rose,  a.s evidenced since his confinement, the  warden of the jail said of him last evening that Rose was one of the best prisoners he had ever had in the jail. When  Rose was lirst received the officials of the  institution received a number of warnings from the outside, to tho effect that  Rose was a very desperate man, and that  he would not stop at anything to attain  his ends or secure his liberty, but at no  period during his imprisonment was there  the slightest indication that Rose was  inclined   to   give   trouble.  AVhen the sentence of death was passed  upon him Rose never for a moment lost  heart, and although the odds were very  much against him he continued to have  hope in the efforts of his counsel to secure either a new trial or at least a commutation of his sentence to life imprisonment. AVhen his last hope failed, and the  word came from Ottawa that the sentence of the court must be executed, Rose  received the news like a stoic. Apparently  it made no difference whatever in his conduct. He never complained, nor was he  sullen for a moment. He spent his time  In conversation with the members of his  death watch, or such of the prison officials  as happened to be near him, and had an  unfailing fund of stories to relate concerning incidents in his long career on the  frontier, and his prospecting and hunting  trips since IS90. The greater portion of  his evenings were spent in playing whist  and euchre with the men on the death  watch arid the prison officials. On the  night prjftr to his execution Rose played  cards milch longer than usual, and lt was  2 o'clock on the morning set for his execution when his last game of cards was  finished, and the conderhned man sought  his bunk. Those who took part in (he  game say Rose was the most composed  man  of  tlio  party.    He   gave  the  closest  attention   to   the   game   and   never   overlooked his hand.  From 2 o'clock until 3 o'clock Rose appeared to be asleep, but after this he  was awake. At 5.30 o'clock father Althoff  entered his cell and held mass, and remained with the prisoner from this time  until the end. Rose breakfasted at 7.10  and partook of a good meal, consisting of  a couple of eggs, some toast and a cup of  strong coffee. Just before the executioner  enter ed the cell to bind the arms of the  condemned, as a preliminary to the march  to the gallows, father Althoff asked for  some stimulants for the prisoner. He was  given about a tablespoonful of brandy,  which is the only stimulant Rose had during.the whole period of his imprisonment.  Storm Ulsters  BOTH  AVERE  CARRIED.  On Thursday the vote on the electric  light rate by-law and on the by-law extending the city limits' so as to take in  about 15 acres and' the water-works reservoir resulted in the ratification of both  by-laws.
