Sad .State of One of the Pioneers of the Nelson District. FRENCH CANADIANS LOOK OVER ALBERTA EX-SLAVE A MILLIONAIRE Kansas Negro Made All By 'Farming. His Money Nearly everyone who rides on the Union Pacific or Rock Island trains of Kansas City has noticed a big 'brick house just north of the railroad tracks, about half' a mile east of Ed- wardsville, Kan., says a Kansas Citv letter to the Louisville Herald. The house sets 'back from the road- way and -up on the side of the .bluffs. There are no trees to hide it, and the house is visible for several miles he- fore one reaches Edwardsville from the east Coming from the west the bluffs hide the big home until train is almost even with it> That house of 22 rooms cost and it is owned by a negro, probably the richest in Kansas and one of the richest in the country. He has made it a.11 in Kansas. None of his neigh- bors know how wealthy J. J. Groves really is. Groves probably knows, but does not tell. He is popularly reput- ed to be a millionaire. He owns 523 acres of Kaw valley land, every acre worth at least some of 'that amount. the it worth nearly double Within a few davs he of the slaves, as his people had been released from this when he was four years of age. But his former master was a good one and Groves stayed with him until he was 20 years old. Then he went to Kansas. This 20-year-old hoy land- ed in Kansas City with just 75 cents in his pockets. He walked into what is now Ar- mourdale. This part of Kansas City, Kan., was then farm lauds. J. T. Williamson was a farmer there and Groves went to work for' him. At the 'beginning of the second spring Groves and Williamson made a deal whereby Groves was to work for Williamson for 40 cents a dayf but he should have some time of his own. Williamson lent him a team, seed and let him rent 10 acres of ground. Three acres were planted to sweet potatoes, three to watermelons and the rest to Irish potatoes. Groves was married that year. Both man and wife worked hard, and in two ye'ars they had saved enough from their share of. the crop of the ten acres to buy a team of mules and a ramshackle old "wagon. Then they moved to west of Ed- wardsville and rented 60 acres of land. Nelson, Aug." The news that Wil- liam Perdue, one of the very old tim- ers of this -district, has been pro- nounced demented by a Seattle court, will be read with melancholy interest many in Nelson. "Billy" Perdue was a well known figure in this dis- trict as early as 18S6, and was about Revelstoke in connection with C. P. R. construction. In early days here he ran the butcher shop now conduct- ed by p. Burns Co., being a part- ner of W. J. Wilson. Early in the '90's he toad mail con- tracts in the winters between Marcus, Wash., and Nelson. He was one first men to take cattle into Dawson and on the trip was- hung up on the Yukon river for a long time. He toook cattle in three times. Af- ter returning from the north he ran a packing establishment in Spokane for two years. He left Nelson about ten years ago, becoming interested in some mining properties at Rossland.

Choquette, representing 100 French Canadian families, long settled in Kansas, but now Intending to return and settle in Canada, interviewed Dominion .Lands 'Agent Stafford and Immigration Agent Mair is an important movement, as they are all experienced farmers and possess ample means. They left for Calgary by the three o'clock train, intending to examine the Medicine Hat and Swift Current -districts before going north.

Prince Backed by Austria to Check Ambitions of Ferdinand of Bulgaria, Vienna, Aug. announcement. by Prince Nicholas of Montenegro that he has decided that after Aus he will assume the title of king in- stead of Prince of Montenegro, will not, it is believe, further complicate the Balkan situation and will be ac- quiesced in not only -by Austria, but by the other powers. In fact it is regarded as not at all improbable that the suggestion was made by Austria, unofficially, of course. It is firmly believed in high circles here that the ambitions of Fer- dinand of Bulgaria look to a confed- eration of the Balkan states with him- self as the head of the new empire. Austria does not regard such a con- j federation with favor, and by strength- ening-states like Montenegro she feels she is making the task of Ferdinand more difficult.
