 tS  - \J  THE TRIBUNE  IS THE OLDEST  NEWSPAPER  PRINTED IN THE KOOTENAYS  Saturday, November 21, 19Q3  NELSON IS THE TRADE CENTER OF SOUTHEASTERN BRITISH COLUMBIA  NOT AFRAID TO PUT MONEY IN MINES  So Says George W* Hughes, a Pioneer  Mining Man of Slocan District, Who  is Recognized as a Level-Headed and  Conservative Operator.  George W. Hughes of Sandon, who has owned and worked  mines in the Slocan for over ten years, both as au individual  owner and as manager for companies, was iu Nelson during the  week. Mr. Hughes went to Ottawa last January, as a delegate  of the silver-lead mine-owners, to assist in securing aid from  parliament for the silver-lead industry, aud from Ottawa he  . went to where he was raised in the state of Maryland and spent  the summer and fall. From his old home in Ma^land he made  iiiairy side trips, and was often in New York. Mr. Hughes is  looked on as one of the most level-headed mining men in the  Slocan, a man who does not make extravagant statements, and  when he states that IT IS EASIER TO RAISE MONEY IN  NEW YORK FOR A MINING VENTURE THAN FOR  ANY 'OTHER BUSINESS ENTERPRISE, the statement  will be accepted as one worthy of belief. While much riione}'  has been lost in mining ventures, the same is true of railwa}'  ventures, real estate deals, and industrial schemes. On the  other hand, when profitable no ventures pay such quick and-  large returns as mines. Mr. Hughes and his partner own the  Mountain Chief mine, near New Denver, and have faith in it.  He is also part owiier of the Sunset mine, near Sandon, which  has paid-'haudsome returns. This mine will be worked during  the winter, as timber and supplies were got on the ground before Mr. Hughes left Sandon.  Cramming at Schools.  Such is the verdict of tlie British ��� Association Committee, which was appointed  recently to chnsidoivth^ e.ffect of exnmina-;  ..-turns in-schools on. children. It is the  outcome of a strong conviction in certain  quarters that our boasted educational system, which has been the.subject.of great  laudatory comment, is after all riddled  with defects and incidentally a factor in  the physical deteoriation of children recently discovered anions* school children  in-Engiand. The committee's report goes  on to say that'whiie of late years there  has been a marked tendency to improve  character of examinations they are nevertheless "being carried on with such wasteful and mischievous excess that they are  doing more harm than good to the advance of education and unfortunately tell  most upon the best pupils." And again:  "General examinations in all subjects are  wholly pernicious in their effects, not  only in checking individuality and progress among teachers, but in tending to  substitute facility of reproduction for originality of thought among the taught."  ; The examination in short fosters the  braui'^the teacher considering not what  ^was'bestforthe'pupil'butwhat^questionS"  the examiner would ask. The whole  question is of far-reaching importance.  Education, like everything else, has got  into a rut of conventionality worn by  years of work along just one line and now  that in the light of recent psycological research, different methods are advised,  still maintains its old position apparently  impotent to rise to thc occasion.  The general attitude of the teacher of  the day towards the pupil is one' of sledge  hammer aud wedge; it is surrounded with  tho false assertion that knowledge has to  be. rammed into a child totally unmindful of tho fact thnt it is latent within and  needs only favorable environment for it  to manifest. Tho very fact that not oue  man iu a thousand at -10 can begin to re-  . member ouo-tenth of ono per cent of what  he was taught at school is striking evidence that the effort to cram him was of  a temporary nature, just long enough to  tide over'the few years that make hhn  appeal' learned for a briof season. The  bane of modern educution'is tho false aspect of what it is. "All things come from  within," said a wise philosopher in the  days of old when people were supposed to  be very ignorant. . How true, this can be  testified by the wonderful illustrations afforded by children who are far above the  average and are able to draw out by themselves vast funds of learning on matters  that have never been mentioned to them  and about which they have had no possible opportunity of reading. The whole  question is illustrated as the one of physical digestion. It is not what one ��� eats,  nor what one digests that does the good,  but what one assimilates and is able by  the aid of the various internal organs to  appropriate the vitality from the food for  the building of flesh, bone and nervous  ��� matter.: In like manner with education,  it is'not what we learn, but- What we inwardly digest that gives to the pupil that  lasting knowledge that will abide for all  time and not be, as is the case nowdays, a  mere temporary tenant of the brain for  the purpose of helping a false energy over  the stile of the much adulated exam.  The Wrong System.  New Denver Ledge,; November 19th:  "How to deal with the oldest profession  on earth has always been'-a gigantic problem with" municipalities.. When Nelson  put on long, pants and became a city,  every landlady of a niaisdn de joie was  required to pay $20 each mouth into the  city treasury for the purpose of dealing but  booze at double prices.3. In collecting this  tax there was no publicity; no parading  of unfortunate women in police courts.  The inmates of these houses of commercial love -were unmolested, except when  they became disorderly on the public  streets. This system worked admirably  for seven years and enriched the city by  ��20,000. Lately this system has been changed to one that has caused trouble and scandal in nearly every city of the west. The  system is to bring the cyprians every  little while into the police court and fine  the madams $10 and inmates $5 a month,  payable, we understand, three months in  advance. There is no more money in this  system for the city, but there is a heap of  unsavory notoriety. It places Nelson in  the position of a municipal niacque, profiting by the shame of' so-called' fallen -women. It is not wrong or undignified to  collect even an indirect license for selling  cheap booze at dear prices, but to drag  the sad-hearted martyrs of a false social  system into a police court and fine them  regularly is a business fit only for the lowest stope in hades. It is deplorable enough  to know that in Nelson women are daily  crucificdiupon the altai_of_uiiholy_:passion=  without having the city stoop to profit by  their misery, much tlie some as a hobo  dives into a spittoon after a slimy nickle.  If the trade is criminal and illegitimate, then a city that condones it  and allows it to flourish by accepting a  share of the profits, is no better than any  other kind of a mncque. The municipal  rulers of Nelson should wipe the mud off  their mental visions, and livo less in the  sewer of thought upon social and public  affairs."  The Joly-McBride Government.  The electors of Vancouver have said by  a majority of 971 that the Joly-McBride  government is entitled to the confidence  of tho peoplo of Britisli Columbia. The  Joly-McBride government is made up of  four ministers who draw pay and ouo who  does not draw pay. Of the four who draw  pay, three livo within a radius of ten  miles of the postoffice in Vancouver, aud  one lives iu Kaslo. The minister who  does not draw pay does not count iu tho  government, for he can only attend meetings of the executive semi-occasioually, as  lie lives;at Kamloops. The electors of  Vancouver have declared that their  confidence in the Joly-McBride government' is because the government  is home made, that is, made out of Van-  couver's -'^solid five," so their declaration  of confidence has little significance to  other sections of the province. The Joly-  McBride government cannot last, because it is not -representative of the Liberal-Conservative party, the party that  has a majority of the members-elect to tho  legislature. When sir Henri. Joly forms  a government that is truly representative  of the province of Britisli Columbia and  its dominant party* and not of one city in  tlie province, a declaration of confidence  in the government so formed, no matter  where the declaration is made, will have  significance.   ��� Purchase Completed.  It is said that the syndicate who had a  bond on the Hunter V. mine on Hidden  creek, near Ymir, have taken up the bond,  the property having been developed into a  mine. A. D. Wheeler, formerly of Ainsworth, is iii charge as superintendent.  Charles Wilson Declares That He, not McBride,  Is the Leader of the Liberkl-Conservative Party.  :���'!:��� .:������'"������  ������    ; -   '      "^ !

The Vancocver Vote.  The bye-election at Vancouver on Wednesday resulted in the election of Hon.  Charles  Wilson, K.C, attorney-general  =li^956"__ajb--t3r. __t~the general^electionT  on October 3rd, Mr. Wilson received 2403  votes and at the election on Wednesday;  he received 2840, or 437 more than he received at the' general.election. His opponent, captain Stuart, received 1884 votes  . on Wednesday as agaiust 1547 polled for  Joseph Martin at the general election, a  gain of 337 votes. - Mr. Wilson therefore  gained au even 100 votes l-unniug as attorney-general over what ho i>olled when  running as prcsidont of the council.

There will be no. retrenchment in'  the riding represented by Hon. Robert F.;  Green, for instance;  but there wiil be'  drastic retrenchment in the riding rep-!  resented b-f John! Houston.   There will be  riO suspension (rf public works or abolition  of needless offices in Vancouver or New'  Westminster, but Victoria will "get it in  the neck," for did not Victoria put one of  the members of the' 'churn'' government in  his political grave. . The present govern-!  ment is no more in earnest'to bring about  retrenchment than were any of its' pre-'i  decessors.   Individually, wheni members  of the last legislature, they thanked the  Dunsmuir government for making them  "liberal"   appropriations at one session  and denounced it at the next session for  .cutting down their appropriations.   The  above are statements of fact, and can be  verified by the reports of the. proceedings  of   the   house in  1900,   1901,  and  1902;  When the province has a government that  means business, means will be found to  provide revenue for carrying on needed  public works, and no office or official will'  be maintainedorretained'that-isnot^ab-"  solutely  needed.    The  present government does not mean business.  Retrenchment That Don't Retrench.  The Joly-McBride government announces through its iinauce minister that it is  retrenching expenses by notifying.' all  clerks temporarily employed that their  services will be dispensed with, and that  the mining reet nil offices at Wells and  Bennett in Atlin district, and Creston in  Nelson.district, will he made commission  offices, instead of nllices in charge of recorders on 'regular salary. These retrenchments will, "O doubt, save the  province a-few hundred dollars a year,  but they are as ,-i mere drop in a bucket.  Tho Joly-McBii-1'' government is not  made up of nun who have the courage,  even if they lisnl the ability to devise n  comprehensive svsleni of retrenchment,  to retrench. If tliey hnd the ability to  devise a system of retrenchment that  would   bring    .-suits,    they   lack    the  Invading British Columbia.  Cranbrook Herald, 19th: "M. Mclnnes  has disposed of his meat market to the  Calgary Cattle Company, and will relinquish possession on December 1st. Mr.  Mclnnes retains an interest iu the business and will remain in charge for the  presont at least. The Calgary Cattle  Company is a strong organization and at  present has markets nt Fernie, Calgary,  Wetaskiwin, and Golden, and tlie purchase of Mr. Mclnnes' business gives them  a foothold iu this part of East Kootenay.  Tlie people of Cranbrook will be pleased  to know that Mr. Mclnnes will remain in  town, as the departure of himself nud  family would be a source of universal regret."    Would Like to be Considered Decent.  The manager of tbe Canadian Bank of  Commerce, who is a resident of Toronto,  asked all decent Liberal new spiipers in  British Columbia to give the McBride  government support. The only Liberal  newspaper that has followed the Toronto  banlt: manager's request is the Vancouver  Province, which is the only indecent Liberal newspaper in British Columbia.  ' A. G. Gamble wa.s appointed liquida-  dator of The Tribune Association, Limited, nearly two years ago. He has managed his trust so well that his lawyers,  Elliot & Lennie, have got more out of the  assets thau any of the creditors.  R. T. Lowery is moving his. printing  materiul from Nelson to Poplar Creek,  where he intends publishing a weekly  newspaper, with "Jim" Grier as chief  pusher.  John Keen of Kaslo, president of the  Provincial Mining Association, is iu Nelson on the way to Kamloops to attend a  meeting of tho exeeutivo of iho association.  John Houston. M.P.P., and W. F. Teetzel leave Nelson for Victoria tomorrow  evening, going via C.P.R.  Party-Line Politics in British Columbia  will be a Delusion Until Graft is Entirely Eliminated, which will Take  Time and Much Hard Wort  Party-line politics in British Columbia is a delusion,  and*-'  tliere will be no party-line politics in this province for some time  to come.    The province has much honey within  its  comb, and .  cliques and factions have been organized to rob the  comb, and ~  these cliques and factions have no allegiance to political parties!  They vote Liberal-Conservative one day and Liberal the'next j* ���  and always have an excuse to justify their'. flopping. ��� Vancouver seems to be the headquarters of these political  thimble-riggers.    Twenty-five per cent of the professed Liberals of  Vancouver can be depended on to vote against their party on occa-^  sion for the following alleged reasons :   (i.) Graft from Ottawa^ *  controlled by "Bob" Kelly ; (2) Graft from Victoria in the shape  of land grants for railways ; (3) Fear that Joe Martin may gain-  political asceudenc}-;   (4) Fear that Victoria may  regain con;  "  trol of the government.    "Bob"  Kelly, the wholesale grocery  and "Bob" Macpherson, M.P., control and dispense  the  graft;  from Ottawa, and they control and dispense jt through having"  a secret treaty with a faction of the Liberal-Conservative party .^ -  who vote Liberal in Dominion elections in return for votes "de--  ,*��� ;  ' * ���  livered by the Kelly-Macpherson Liberals to Liberal-Conserva- ,*  *  tives in provincial elections.    This treaty is said to "be in^ writ- ''.J  ing, and in the possession of the Liberal-Conservatives who run*; ��  the Tatlow-Bowser machine  The "Kitimat crowd" was originally made up of Victoria-1 I^ibri^f  eral-Conservatives, but in in order to get graft from < Ottawat,'.inr^|a  the shape of a cash bonus for the construction' bf ' the VKitimatl  ;xoad^Vancou.ver.;-Liberafeihad*to4-e_^k  vote Liberal-Conservative at provincial elections in the hope that  the Liberal-Conservatives in power at Victoria* will vote a'land  ^  subsidy to aid.the Kitimat road.    The Liberals  in  Vancouver  who vote Liberal-Conservative for fear that "Joe" Martin may    -  control the Liberal party are not numerous, but they are influ-  "���' ���    ' - '''������'-���'���. . "H  ential.    They belong to the "better element," of which so much -,  is heard in every campaign, but whose voting strength is largely f  influence.      The   Liberal  faction,   however,   who   vote   Liberal-Conservative, now that Vancouver has the government, is  large.    They are the men who say : " The interests of the Mainland have been subordinated to the Island long: enough."   They  imagine Vancouver is the. Mainland, however.'    These men are  narrow-minded and selfish; and whether they be professed Lib-  Wals^'XibeHl-Co5servaTives: can always-be~^depended  on-to"  keep all four feet in the feeding trough, as long as the feeding  trough is in Vancouver.  The Liberal-Conservatives of Vancouver have factions.that  are not in for straight-line politics. One faction dislikes Charles  Wilson, who is now attorney-general, because he is friendly to  laboring men. This is the "better element" faction. Another  faction is agaiust granting auy cash or land subsidies; to railways, unless the railways arc to be operated as part of the Canadian Pacific system, and this faction can be depended onto vote  Liberal ou occasion. Another faction will vote Liberal-Conservative if thc government is made up of Vancouver men, but  only on that condition.  The above are the reasons why Vancouver goes Liberal in  oue election and Liberal-Conservative in another, and what is  true of Vancouver is equally true of other places in the prov-  Sixty per cent of the electors "are for  party-line  politics,  mee.  fifteen per cent are independents, and 'twenty-five per cent  are  political grafters and "better element" soreheads.  May Not Go to Port Simpson.  It will not be n matter of surprise if  the Grand Trunk Pacific directors selected some other port than Port Simpson as their terminal point upon the  Pacific Coast, inland from Port Simpson, running in a southeasterly direction, there is a deep water channel  known as Work channel with high and  precipitous mountains ou both sides,  rising to a height of four or five thousand feet. In order to get from the  valley of the Skeena,' down which the  railway will run, aud around Work  channel and then to Port Simpson, the  mountains would have to be cut away  for 20 miles in a continuous stretch of  galleries. The cost would be enormous. Mr. Anderson, chief engiueer of tho  department of marine and fisheries,  who has surveyed all up tho, coast of  British Columbia, while admitting that  Port Simpson furnished a splendid' deep-  water terminus, yet, on account of the  obstacles mentioned, is of the opinion  that some other terminal point will have  to be selected. He favors Kitimat arm.  Mr. Wainwright, one of the directors of  the Grand Trunk Pacific, confirms Mr.  Anderson's view, although he admits that  tho final decision had not yet been reached  upon thnt point. Mr. Wainwright states  that the company has had a sprvey party  ou the coast all summer, and they had  reached three available harbors���Port  Simpson, Kitimat, and Bella Coola. 2  - "i-i ���   . ���.---i   n        ...

' SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1903  The patronage giveii eastern department stores is a subject that is receiving  editorial treatment from the press of British Columbia and one class of people are  being lambasted for diverting business  from another class. Why should the press  lambaste one class of people for the bene-  fit'of another class, when both classes are  guilty of the same fault? At one time  The Tribune was to the fore front in the  fight against the people of Kootenay sending mail orders to Eastern department  stores; but when it found that 90 per cent  of the merchants in Kooteuay purchased  their office stationery from Toronto job  printers, it came to the conclusion that  busiuess was business; that people  .. (whether merchants or mechanics, professional men or clerks) bought where they  "thought they bomght the cheapest;; and  that there is no sentiment in business.  The Tribune is of the opinion that the  Eastern department stores must be fought  . by department stores in British Columbia.  A department store in Nelson, - for instance, would draw mail orders; from  every town in Kootenay, which would  ���work to the disadvantage of merchants in  smaller towns, just as it does at present  when the mail orders are sent to Toronto  department stores. Were a dozenof. .the  merchants of Nelson to combine their  stocks of merchandise and capital and run  - a department store, they would make more  money than they are making, and for  every dollar of outside trade now coming  'to Nelson there would be two. This  might result in lowering rents for busi-  . -ness houses and'might drive some people  out of,business altogether; but the fittest  would snrvive._JNewspapers,_as a rule,  have little horse sense and seldom show a  spirit of fairness. They will jump on the  mechanic or clerk, who must manage with  the strictest economy in order to keep his  family, when he send East for goods for his  family, but they are silent as: mummies  when well-to-do merchants send east for  their oflice stationery, who by so doing  save in a year less than the weekly wages  of the average mechanic or clerk. The  press of British Columbia is both cowardly and time-serving, on occasion.  What, was expected happened iu Vancouver on Wednesday, and Charles Wilson is now attorney-general of the. province with the approval of his constituents,  which is the best endorsement a public  man can secure. Charles Wilson should  make a capable attorney-general. He has  personal peculiarities, but The Tribune is  of opinion he will not sacrifice what he  believes to be the interests of the people  in order ;that any man* or anyt set of men,  or any corporation shall reap an advantage. He is the elected leader of the Lib-  eraL-Conservative party, and, he is, now in  a position to lead his party in the legislative assembly. HaSihe*1'the-conrage to  take what rightfully belongs to him? Or  will he allow Richard McBride , to take  without protest what he (McBride) *__.'-���  ��� successfully, attempted tp take from Joseph  Martin during;the session of 1902���a  leader's seat.., -\.^,>f  ' The Rossland Miner in comparing James  , J. Hilll and the Canadian Pacific management, says.tliat Hill is doing wonders iu  building steel ships for the Pacific ocean  carrying trade while the Canadian Pacific  cannot even provide'freight cars for its increasing traffic. .The Canadian .Pacific  has the finest fleet of steamships that ply  on the Pacific ocean; it' has the finest  steamships that run to Alaskan' ports, and  its ferry service  between  Victoria and  Vancouver is so far superior to the same  service between Victoria and Seattle that  there is no comparison. The Canadian  Pacific may not be up to date in all things,  but taken as a whole its railways and  steamships will compare favorably with  those of any of the lines to thc south of  the international boundary line.  ���-��� A government that is not allowed to issue  a check to pay for any public work without its first being "initialed" by a- bank  manager surely cannot undertake to aid  in the construction of thousands of iniles  of railway. Premier McBride of British  Columbia is at the head of a "government" that cannot construct a mile of  wagon road in a mining camp without  first getting permission from the manager  of the Canadian Bank of Commerce in  Toronto, yet he talks glibly of what his  "government" intends, to do in the way  of aiding railway construction in the  province. Richard is a foolish man if he  imagines the Liberal-Conservative party  will stand for any such utterances from  its "leader. "  The Nelson Daily News is the only daily  newspaper published in Britisli Columbia  that has any circulation'in the Kootenay.  districts and in the Boundary country. It  is published by F. J. Deane, a Liberal politician, and is edited by hired men who,  apparently, cannot; be made understand  that fellow journalists, even if they be  politicians, have either reputations or feelings.' The Nelson Miner, of which the  Daily News is the successor, was a foul  bird, and the Daily News is of the same  feather. ���   The Victoria Colonist says that there  are many people'in that town who would  rather purchase foreign-made articles than  articles made in Victoria, even when the  home-made article is the far superior.  What is true of the people of Victoria in  respect to articles of consumption is true  of the people of other towns and districts  in respect, to politics. Around Nelson are  districts whose people would much rather  be hanging on to the coat-tails- of some  political accident at the Coast than walking arm-in-arm-with any politician -from  their own neighborhood.  Harry Wright, M.P.P. for Ymir riding,  although-a=resideiit-6f=Nelson,-says-lie-  prefers to risk his political future by following the advice given him by the  memeber of the McBride government  rather than taking the advice of anyone  in Nelson. Had he made such a declaration  before October 3rd, he would not now be  making political declaration-.  The City of Nelson is iut partnership with vice, and takes its rakeoff  through the medium of the police-court  docket. This makes the police magistrate  a mere go-between between tlie city and  vice," a position that must bo as repugnant  to polico,magistrate Crease as it is abhorrent to the people of Nelson  Snubbed, but Clings to Office.  Ottawa Free Press, November Srd:  "Those familiar with constitutional procedure and the practice of government  have been expecting daily to read of the  resignation of premier McBride of British  Columbia after the sharp snub he received when sir Henri Joly de Lotbiniere,  the lieutenant-governor, declined to accept his recommendation of John Houston  as a;member of the cabinet. Sir Henri,  by his refusal, showed that he had no  confidence in the judgment of his first  minister. The premier, after such humiliation,, cannot with any degree of dignity  _nd self-respect have further relations  with the lieutenant-governor. So marked,  distinct and deliberate an expression of  want of confidence leaves the premier no  alternative but resignation; but it is astonishing what some people will submit  to in order to cling to office."

Guiteau has made the claini  that the books of Dun and Bradstreet  show but tliree per cent of the names that  were registered twenty years ago. He  further makes the claim that out of every  100 men who have reached the age of GO  years that 80 are absolutely dependent on  others for their living. This is a sad commentary upon oiu' civilization. Men who'  approach the sunset of life, who have  lived three score years upon the planet are  penniless with the exception of a small  percentage, who have been fortunate in  the great scramble to husband sufficient resources to save them from the miserable  alms of a poor-house. The business men  who populated the ��� commercial arena of  this nation twenty years ago have found  graves in the bankrupt cemetery, with  the exception of a three per cent remnant,  who have been able to breast the tide.  Boards of trade, the wheat pit and the  thousands of various; stock jobbing  schemes have swallowed humanity in the  maelstrom of ruin, and yet the fever of  speculation remains unabated, regardless  of all the wrecks that are strewn along  the pathway of life. Men are money  drunk and the appetite for wealth has become a disease. The present civilization  is pregnant with tragedies that will yet  appal and stagger the world.  Time to Pray.  A preacher, at the conclusion of one of  his sermons, said: "Let all in the house  who are paying their debts stand up."  Instantly every man, woman, and child,  with one exception, rose to their feet.  The preacher seated them and said:  "Now, eveiy man not paying his debts  stand up." The exception noted, a careworn, hungry-looking individual, clothed  in his last summer's suit, slowly assumed  a perpendicular position. "How is it, my  friend," asked the minister, "that you are  the only man not to meet his obligations?"  "I run a newspaper," he meekly answered, "and the brethren here who just  stood up are my subscribers, and���" "Let  us pray," exclaimed the minister.  To Win Notice.

THE   COMPANY'S   POLICY  It is the intention of the Company to actively develop all these valuable properties and sell such of them as they do not wish to mine themselves, either  to outside capitalists or to subsidiary companies to be formed by the parent  Company, the proceeds going to the shareholders of the Great Northern Mines,  Limited.  Description  of Property  No. 1, embracing seven claims (a claim is about 52 acres) and' well known  throughout the province as the Lade Group, is situated on Gainer Creek, 14  miles above Ferguson.  A tunnel 112 feet long has been run aiid a shaft sunk on the ore. Five tons  of the ore shipped to the smelter gave returns of $1,100 to the ton, in free gold.  Frequent assays of ore from other partsiof the claims have more than confirmed this high value, running from $20) to V-,200, and from picked samples  as high as $11,340 to the ton.  The property is traversed by a main ledge, eight to twelve feet wide, and  several smaller veins carrying high val ucs in free gold and telluride, similar  to the rich ores of Cripple Creek, Colorado. In the Lade Group the present  promoters were satisfied from assays, development work and thorough investigation, that they had a property as rich as any-in British Columbia; but on  account of the distance from transpor tation, and the altitude (over 8,000 feet)  they decided to-let it lie until a more convenient season, and in the meantime  acquired other gold claims from which quicker returns could be obtained.  A  Complete   Aline  No. 2, consisting of seven claims, has-been purchased from the Ophir-Lade  Mining Syndicate, and is a gold mine in full working order. It is situated on  Fish River and Pool Creek, 1500 feet above Camborne, and only six miles from  a daily steamboat landing at the head of Arrow Lake. On this property, the  Ophir-Lade Syndicate has completed, at a cost of about $24,000, 1500 feet of  tunnels, cross cuts and other development work. It has also, at an approximate  cost of $35,000, installed one of the most complete and best constructed outfits  of machinery in the province, including a 10-stamp Fraser & Chalmers' quart-  mill, rock crusher, Frue vanners, air co mpressor and drills, aerial tramway, two  Pelton water wheels (300 horse power), assay office, and all necessary buildings.  For a description of this property, the Directors have pleasure in referring  to the report of Mr. A. H. Gracey, mining engineer of Nelson, made in 1901.  At that time Mr. Gracey was Manager of the Eva mine. Space does not allow  the reproduction of his report in full, but the following extracts will give a fair  idea of this property:  GEOLOGY.  -, "Tiie country rock of the neighborhood is metamorphic in character, lrat  may be called in general a talc schist, with probably some chlorite present. A  belt of this formation extends many miles in an East and West direction, and,  so far, the free gold discoveries in this district are mostly confined to this belt.  VEINS  AND  CHARACTERISTICS.  Exposed on the property at the. present time are two well defined veins of  free gold bearing quartz, whicli have been opened up on the surface by cuts,  etc., for considerable distances. The Oyster vein (on the Oyster claim) strikes  N. GO degrees W. and pitches into the mountain at an angle of 57 degrees from  the horizontal. It has a width, where exposed, of from 8 to 25 feet, a large  portion of which is solid quartz.  "The Criterion vein (on the Criterion claim) has been exposed by open  cuts for a distance of about 400 feet. The strike is due East and West (magnetic), and the surface cuts show a width of vein of from 3 to 17 feet. The  vein is composed of solid quartz, carrying its chief values in free gold, associated at some points with a little iron pyrites and galena. The following  assays are of samples carefully taken from this vein by myself:  "1. Average chipped across both ends at collar of shaft, $18 gold per ton.  "2. Average ore from bottom of shaft, $21.60.  "3. Average chipped across big cu t, 17 feet wide, $4.50 per ton.  "4. Average chipped across cut No. 3, 4 feet wide, solid quartz, $3.20 per  ton. There are in this cut some rich seams showing free gold, which are not  included in sample.  "Selected samples from these cuts gave assays running from $478.20 to  $2,601.40  pei- ton.  "A large amount of exceedingly rich ore has been found, especially at the  -PoinUwhem^the^shaft^isJjfiing^siink.^.^^^^^,^---^ .=^_  "Intersecting this gold bearing qu artz vein is a smaller vein of galena and  iron from 12 inches lo 24 inches wide. This has been stripped for over 60 feet  and is particularly well defined and regular. Average samples of this vein  give values as follows:  Gold  $22.80  Silver 25.2 oz.  Lead   27.G per cent.  "Although these veins are not developed to any extent, they are all exceptionally promising, especially the Criterion vein. They are all well defined and  with every appearance of permanency, and warrant a thorough development.  "The facilities for cheap mining and milling are excellent. The veins can  lie worked to depths of hundreds of feet from tunnel levels. There is an abundance of timber suitable for all mining purposes on the property, while for  power purposes a record for 300 miners' inches of water has been secured in  Pool Creek at the fool of the mountain."  Immediate   Returns   Expected  In the course of a few days it. is expected that the stamp mil! at this  mine will lie producing bul lion in fluff! cient quantity to pay immediate dividends.  Another   Good   Property  No. 3. The Imperial, Balfour and Rossland claims, lying on Lexington  mountain, immediately between three working mines, the Eva, the Cholla, the  Oyster-Criterion. There are on the property three well defined quartz ledges,  showing free gold on the surface. A 50-foot tunnel has been run on the Imperial. It is run on the ledge anil free gold was encountered throughout tis  entire  length.  The large amount of development work done both on the Eva and Oyster-  Criterion had proved that the rich gold values on this mountain continue and  even improve with depth. At the 700-foot level on the Eva, close to the line  of this group, some of the richest ore on the mountain has been struck. The  workings of both of these well known mines are close to the property of the  Great Northern. The main ledges on the property mn into the Oyster-Criterion  ground.  The tramway and air pipe of the Oyster-Criterion run over the property,  and the Eva tramway cuts across one corner.  The whole of Lexington Mountain is a mass of ledges of free milling quartz,  and the Great Northern Company have every reason to believe they own one  of the richest portions of the hill.  A meeting of the shareholders of the Ophir-Lade Syndicate is';.being called  to formally ratify the sale of that company's property to the Great Northern.  Two   Potential   Claims  No. 4 property consists of the Strathcona full claim, and the Triune.fraction, lying on Silver Cup Mountain, near Ferguson, between - the Triune and  the Cromwell, both of which have been proved by extensive work to be rich  in gold. The Triune has shipped a large amount of ore, averaging about $240  to the ton. The Cromwell has made a shipment to the Trail smelter, representing 13 days' work for two men, and  yielding as follows:  Gold, 5.76 oz per ton.    Total value (after deducting 5 per cent.) ....... .$722.53  Silver, 18.-1 oz. per ton.   Total value, (after deducting 5 per cent)  ......   71.24  $793.97  Smelting charges .       79.22  Net Proceeds ... ...   ..;..... $714.55  The  Great0 Lucky Jack  No. 5.   The Lucky Jack has been so much talked of since its discovery, ami  has created such a sensation in mining circles, being described in all the leading mining journals, that the directors feel it almost unnecessary to say much^  further.   The group comprises three claims, situated at the mouth of-Poplar'  Creek, and with the Lardeau branch of the Canadian Pacific Railway running  through it. '..'-..'..':-y.-'. ���������-A.A  ���No-less-than seven ledges have been discovered on itrallcarrying.free gold.',  The main ledge, containing the phe nomenal showing .which has astonished  'the-'world, cuts the mountain vertically, and is from 18 inches to 6 feet wide. A  tunnel is now being run at the lowest w orkable point on the ledge. On September 12th it was in 50 feet,-and'the-ore has been found to retain its-sensational  values throughout.  Timber, water power, tunnelling sites, and every natural advantage for  economical mining are at hand.  It is interesting to note that the mouth of Poplar Creek was mined for  placer gold in the sixties and from the amount of work done, it is evident that  a large quantity of gold was taken out, but it remained for the present owners  to locate the source of the gold.  The company has already taken ste ps to instal a stamp mill and all necessary machinery for quickly mining out the wealth of the Lucky Jack and converting it into dividends for the shareholders.  Last  But Best  No. 6. Though enough has been sai d in the foregoing to satisfy even thc  most sceptical, there is still better to follow.  Words fail to describe the phenome nal  richness of the  "Swede"  group.  Briefly, however, it may be stated, that it consists of two full claims, the  Goldsmith and Gold Hill, being a continuation of the Lucky Jack and lying  higher up on the mountain, thus furnishing better tunnelling sites and enabling the ledges to be mined to a depth of nearly 2000 feet, without sinking.  There are, as far as known to date, nearly a dozen   ledges on the claims,  carrying from an ounce to over a hund red thousand dollars per ton in free gold  and besides this, there are rjch deposits of galena and telluride on thg_claims,_as_  MntlicalM^by'the^fblloWffg^e^ assayer, of  Poplar and Trout Lake City, after testing the ore:  Gold  ozs.

Statements   Accurate  Thc promoters of this company are men well known in Western Canada,  and occupying such positions thai they cannot, afford to connect, their names  with any other than  legitimate mining   ventures.  Every statement in this prospectus is made advisedly, with a full knowledge of their responsibility as directors. The promoters have engaged in  active and legitimate mining for many years. They are not here today and  gone tomorrow. They expect to slay with mining, and assist in making British Columbia what she is destined to be���one of the greatest mining countries of the world.  In the expectation of making the Great Northern one of the strongest  mining companies on the continent, they have thrown all their gold properties  into this consolidation.    Not a single claim or interest has been held back.  Thc expense of operating and management will be comparatively small,  especially as the same economical methods will prevail which have characterized the promoters of the Ophir-Lade and Nettie L., and which have enabled  them  to achieve signal  success  in  the   pasl.  Strictly   Limited  The company will under no consi deralion sell more than one hundred  thousand shares, ajid the proceeds will be used strictly for development purposes and  paying for plant and  machinery.  The shares are of the par value of one dollar, and are offered for a  limited time only at. that, figure. They are fully paid, non-assessable, and  carry no further liability whatever.  The directors reserve the right to allot shares according to priority of  application, or in the event of the sh ares being over subscribed, to allot  them pro rata.  APPLICATION  Application for shares, accompanied by payment in full, should be made to the Imperial Bank of Canada,  or the Secretary of the Company, Ferguson, B.C.

Nelson, B*G  THE TOWN AND THE DISTRICT.  The members-elect of the legislative assembly imagine it a part of their duty to  visit their constituents immediately before a sitting of the legislature in order to  get posted as to their wants. Harry  Wright, the member for Ymir, has constituents at Creston who have wants and  he wanted to know what their wants are.  On Thursday night he started for Creston,  but mistaking the Kaslo boat for the  Crow's Nest boat, he woke up next morning at Kaslo instead of at Kootenay Landing. The constituents of Mr. Wright at  Creston will have to make their wants  known in writing.  The annual meeting of the Nelson Liberal-Conservative Association takes place  in tho Liberal-Conservative committee  rooms, corner Baker and .Josephine streets,  tonight. The officers for the ensuing  year will be elected and a constitution and  by-laws adopted. Peter Lamont will address the members on: "Why I am a Liberal-Conservative ahd why I do not vote  Liberal-Conservative.'! David Mark Car-  ley, who won the Victoria Cross in Egypt,  -will sing a song, entitled, "There is uo  Graft for Me in the Grand Old Partee."  Dr. G. A. B. Hall and Richard Helme  are back from a shooting trip made to the  Northwest. They got off at Caron, a  small station a few miles west of Moose  Jaw, Assiniboia, and rode north about 80  miles behind a bronco that had all the  mean qualities of his breed and none of  the good qualities of a horse. They ��� got  a few geese and a taste of weather 20  below zero -with the wind blowing at the  rate of 100 miles a minute.  The electors of Willow Point precinct,  Yniir riding, held a public meeting this  week with R. R. Lowe chairman and A.  B. Shannon secretary. The following  resolution was passed unanimously: "Re-  ���' solved, that- the member-elect for Ymir  riding be requested to state through the  public press his reasons for not condemning the. action of premier McBride toward  John Houston, member-elect for Nelson.  W. R. McLean, manager of Thorpe &  Co. Limited, is back from a business trip  through the Lardo country. He was at  Poplar Creek on Thursday night and-attended, a public meeting held to take steps  to induce the C.P.R. to keep the Lardo-  Trout Lake route open during the winter.  The meeting passed resolutions and appointed a committee to look after matters  affecting Poplar.Creek in general.  It is not likely that traffic will be suspended on the Lardo-Trout Lake branch  of the C.P.R. before the middle of January. Last winter the route was kept open  until some time in January. The steamer  on Trout lake is not a powerful one, like  those in use on Kootenay lake and the  Columbia river, and with it alone a channel cannot be kept open.  "Tom" Collins, hunter,.trapper, historian, prospector, and Democrat, has returned from the Second Crossing of the  Lardo, where he prospected for awhile  and put in his leisure moments trapping.  He brought back as trophies of his skill as  a trapper one marten's pelt, and the skins  of 16 weasels and 26 flying squirrels.  F, W. Pettit, who has been a contributor to The Tribune for oyer a year and  who at times was its so}e editor, leaves  "Nelson-on'Monday-for-MontfeaJ^where he-  intends making his home. Mp. Pettit is  a lucid writer, and if given a chance in  the Monti #al papers, will attract attention  to the varied capabilities of Kootenay.  The members of the Carpenters' Union  will hold a social in Miners' Union hall  next Wednesday night (the 25th), whicli  is the fourth anniversary of the union.  The wives of members and contractors  and their wives are cordially invited.  John Kay, the well-known stonemason,  Js back from Edmonton, Alberta, where  bo spent several months. Mr. Kay  has a ranch on the Forty-nine creek road,  and some day expects to be shipping fruit  to the Edmonton country.  William Waldie was in on Sunday from  the Queen mine, situate ten miles from  Salmo. It is not unlikely that he will  suspend work on the property until spring.  Mr. and Mrs. S. M. Brydges are back  from their honeymoon trip, and are at  home on Mill street. S. M. looks ten  years younger than lie did a month ago.  Mr. and Mrs. Alec Carrie of Silica  street were presented with twin daughters  on Sunday.   Mr. Carrie is an architect.  A sou was born on Sunday to Mr. and  Mrs. W. J.
