Directors of Organized Corruption
Under Ross Arc All Now in Dominion Service.
OOttawa,   Sep,..    ' "<-ry   notable
feature of the political don Its the
gradual transference of the Ontario
machine to Ottawa. The ftraj Intirun-
tionof the alliance between the Laurier
Government and the evil clement or Ontario waa given when W, T. EL Preston
marched straight from West Klgin.
where the ballot-boxes had been stuffed,
to a sinecure in the High Commissioner's office at London. Mr. Preston had
been an active machinist, and had figured In most of the questionable elections.
Sir Wilfrid I-aurier regarded his Ber-'
vices with such tavor that the best office
on the other side of the Atlantic was
placed  nt his dls-iosa!.
One of Preston's assistants in Wesl
Klgin, and elsewhere, was W. 11. Hop-
pins. This politician was so satisfied
with the work done In West Klgin
that after he left the constituency he
telegraphed the cheated candidate, Mr.
Macdatrmtd, aa follows:
"Accept congratulations. Will Inconvenience myself any time to give you
a hand In the harvest.
This gentleman has been apiniinted
by the Federal ministers to the position of harbormaster at Parry Sound.
Hoppins had a colleague, L). F. Macdonald by name. Macdonald took part
In tho West Klgin and otHer contests,
and at the clone of the former telegraphed Mr. Macdiarmld a message as
Impudent as that sent by Hoppins. This
politician has been rewarded with the
position of Indian agent at Parry Sound.
At Michipicoten.. just before the defeat
of the Ross government, the ballot-
boxes were stuffed under the auspices
of the celebrated party taken to the spot
in the Minnie M. There 40 votes were
received by the deputy returning officer,
although there were not 40 regular residents at that place. The deputy returning officer, W. L. Nichols, Ib now
Indian Agent at the Sault. His merits
Impressed themselves upon the Ottawa gentlemen and an officer he is under
them today. His case is not so marked
however, as that of J. B. Jackson. This
man was charged with the offence of
getting up a party of perjurers to
swear Donald Sutherland out of his
seat at South Oxford, and was rebuked
by the bench for the wrong he had done.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier at once promoted
him to the position of commercial agent
for Canada at Leeds. Mr. Thomas Hastings, politician and license inspector
for Toronto, dismissed for mismanagement, was appointed by Ottawa to the
office of Inspector of Public Buildings
for Ontario. Mr. Q. W. Ross, the head
of the entire machine business, was
subsequently taken to Ottawa as a Senator, while Mr. A. B, Aylesworlh, the
gentleman who gave the advice on the
uttempted Gamey purchase, was chosen
as Minister of Justice. To complete the
lists of transfers we now have Mr. Geo.
Graham, the gentleman who voted In
the Legislature for all the roguery und
entered the Koss government in a vain
attempt to continue tho wrongs indefinitely, chosen to sit in the Ottawa Cabinet as tho representative of Uie honor
of Ontario.
Driven out of tho office by the people
of Ontario, when It was outraged, the
machine Is finding a lodgment In the
Federal sphere. It is taken there as
a reward for Its improper work In this
province, nnd as a means of making
such work effective ln the Dominion
elections. This Is a sit tuition with
which tho people of Ontario will have
to deal. When we drove the bad element out of the Provincial Legislature,
lt was not Intended that Uie frauds and
the corruption should be carried to Otta
wa to add to the mass of wlckedm-st-
there. As Sir Wilfrid Laurler has
chosen to unlond It upon us again, In
the higher sphere, Ontario is called upon to fight It agnln. This the province
will do with enthusiasm, for "it known
too well what the ascendency of the
Graham uml Aylesworth bleu meuns.
Leigh   Valley   Express   Jumps   Track���
No  Fatal   Injuries.
Easton, Pa., 8ept. 17.���A Leigh Valley
express train from Buffalo to New York
was wrecked early today near Patten-
burg Tunnel in New Jersey, 13 miles
from thiB city. A number of tralnsmen
and passengers were injured, but none
of the latter fatally.
The train was runnfng at a high speed
when the locomotive jumped the track
and plunged into the mountainside. The
engineer, Herbert Geddley, of this city,
was injured internally, and the baggage-
master sustained a fractured arm. The
passengers injured were riding in the
smoking car. Most of the others were
in their berths, and while they were
considerably shaken up they were not
badly Injured. Geddley is the engineer
who was running the Black Diamond
Kxpress last winter when it left tho
track on the Delaware River bridge between this city and Phillipsbury, N. J.,
and narrowly going into the river.
Loss   Expected    in    Manitoba    Because
Number of Harvesters is
Winnipeg. Sept. 17.���A train of twenty-
four cars arrived In the city this morning at 5.IB, bearing the second contingent of the third farm laborers' excursion. About 1,440 people made up this
party, moBt of whom, however, are
homesteaders, many of the men having
their entire families with them.
Much eagerness was shown by these
recent arrivals regarding the possibility of crop failure, of which they had
heard considerable In the east. Assurance was readily given, however, that
there was but little truth in the report,
as a constant demand for men was to
be heard all along the line.
Two more excursions will be run this
season, the first of which is due to arrive here tomorrow. The total number
of harvest hands this year will scarcely
exceed ir.,000, which Is 7,000 less than
last year.
It is exp*K - ''*- tbet most of the men
at present on their way from eastern
points, will become permanent residents
of Saskatchewan and Alberta. They are
not simply coming for the harvest season. They are booked right through to
points west of Manitoba, not even requiring to be retlcketed at Winnipeg.
Much concern is expressed by immigration officials, who are attempting to
provide the farmers with help, that the
number of laborers now known to be
obtainable will be Badly Insufficient to
meet the demand. And should the
weather brighten immediately great inconvenience will be caused by the scarcity of men.
There ts no doubt that Manitoba 1b
short of hands to aid ln Uie harvesting
of the grain and with about seventy-
five percent, of the crop cut the prospects for securing help Is not as bright
as lt might be. Malicious reports have
been spread in the west. But there is
another reason for the lack of help.
In previous years Manitoba has practically sent out the number of men needed In the west. As the harvest fields
were first here the men would arrive at
Winnipeg, be retlcketed to points in
Manitoba and those not locating ln this
province would be sent further west
As soon ns the wheat was well threshed
here the men w-ould move further west
to aid the sister provinces and thus the
harvest would be satisfactorily gleaned.
This year, as usual. Manitoba asked
for L'0,000 harvest hands. The railways,
however, had made enquiries of Alberta
and Saskatchewan and found the number they needed. When Manitoba's
number was In it more than doubled the
number required last year. This was
thought by the railways to be far too
many to ask fur and they at last Induced Manitoba to only ask for 11.000.
the actual number needed. They were,
however, warned how things would pan
When a contract was made in the
east of the men required last year and
this yenr it was Immediately supposed
that the crop was correspondingly reduced as the number of men had been
and consequently the men did not come.
Harvesting In the western provinces
will be two weeks behind It here and
yet the majority of the men have gone
Boom in Egypt.
Cairo, Sept. 17.���The cotton crop ln
Egypt, which exceeds seven million

pounds), shows a lnrge Increase over
all records of ihe pnst decade. It la estimated lo be worth $150,000,000.
Moroccan Tribesmen
Come to Terms
France and Spain Stipulate Only for
Order in Ports and Safety for
Paris, Sept. 17.���The French government Is greatly encuuruged by the improvement in the Moroccan situation
and strong hope Is entertained that the
rebellious tribesmen whom the delegates who conferred with General Drudo
on Sunday, are now consulting, will
agree to the peace terms, which Include
the punishment of the authors of the
Casablanoa massacres and the ringleaders of the movement; an agreement
that no tribesmen shall enter with arms
within a radius of 12 kilometers of the
city; the acceptance of the principle of
the payment of a war contribution, the
amount of which will be fixed hereafter
hy negotiations between the Moroccan
government and France and Spain; the
surrender ot hostages to Insure the fulfilment  of  these conditions.
It Is pointed out that the war contribution has no relation to the Indemnities to be exacted from the Moors for
the loss of life and property which will
be a matter for future adjustment. If
peace Is arranged on the above terms
no further landings of troops will be
made and pending the result of the negotiation, the 6rders for the embark-
ment and forwarding of reinforcements
have been rescinded. The delegates
of the Moorish tribes are expected to
give the final response of the tribesmen
Another good feature of the situation
is a definite agreement with Mohammed
El Oabbas, the Moroccan war minister,
lor the Immediate Installation ol police
at Tangier, in accordance with the
terms of the Algeciras convention,
namely, native police under French-
Spanish Instructions. Tbe ultimate outcome of the struggle between the rival
Sultans of Morocco is a matter with
which the French government is not
concerned, the maudate of France and
Spain being limited to the restoration

Address Will  Be  Given   by Hon.   R.   G.
Tatlow or Hon. J. H. Turner���Final
Preparations Made.
The Nelson Fair will be formally
opened to morrow at 1 p. m. The opening ceremony will consist of a short address by either the Hon. J. H. Turner,
agent-general for British Columbia in
London, or Hon. R. G. Tatlow. minister
of finance. A telegram received last
night by Capt. McMorrls from Premier
McHride expresses his own regret at
being unable to attend, states that
Messrs. Turner and Tatlow left Victoria
yesterday morning and will arrive In
Nelson tonight and conveys his best
wishes for the success of the Fair.
Before that time all exhibits will be
in their places and the judging will be
completed. The programme of sports
will also be under way. The firemen's
races will begin on the grounds in front
of the grand stand at 2 p. m.
The Nat Reiss Carnival company will
also be reaady for operations from the
start with a series of shows and performances immediately the most elaborate and the most varied ever seen in
Kootenay. Mr. Reiss ham a contfr.outal
reputatlou to sustain and he has also
uonceived a great liking for the Queen
City, and will do his best on this occas-
slon to deserve and win the good will of
the Fair directors and of the public In
As to the prospects of the exhibition
proper it would be Idle to deny that the
orchard and garden products have suffered-^���only in respect of exhibition purposes���from the unusual weather of this
summer. While there Is good reason
to believe that no real damage has been
done to the crop, the apples and pears
will not be nearly so well colored as
they were at Fair time last year. The
vegetable crop has also suffered and is
not bo far advanced as it usually is at
this time.
In spite of these handicaps which are
beyond the control even of Managing
Director Fred Starkey, the display of
fruit and vegetables will be such as to
win the entire approbation of all competent judges.
B. O. Bean. C. P. R. Fireman-, the Victim
of  the   Mishap.
B. O. Bean, fireman on yard engine
1322, met with what may prove a fatal
accident at 3.20 o'clock this afternoon.
Mean was engaged In shunting cars in
the C. P. R. yard and was leaning out
of the cabin of the engine watching the
yardman when the engine approached
some box cars on the adjacent track.
He had not observed the cars and his
head struck the one In the rear. Tho
shock was a fearfu! one, and Bean fell
to the ground. The engine was stopped
and he was picked up insensible, bleeding from wound "in the side of tho
Dr. Hall was fmmedlal ely telephoned

the woundod man was lying, he made
a hasty examination of the sufferer'-
wounds, lt was found that the Jaw wa*-
btoken, and contusions on the right
*��ide of the face Indicated other Injuries
ot a more or less serious nature, some
of which may prove fatal. Bean was nt

a further exnminatlon was being mado

Request of Teachers Is
School Board's Busy Session���Dr.
Arthur Will Represent Nelson at
Trustees'   Convention.
The request of the assistant teachers
of Nelson public schools for an immediate increase in salary, on account of the
generally increased cost of living, was
granted by the board of school trustees
at their regular monthly meeting this
morning, after careful deliberation,
without a dissenting voice. The increases will take effect at once, in connection with the salaries for September.
The effect will be to place Nelson more
nearly on a level with the other cities
in the interior. It is a fact that Nelson
has for several years been paying less
to teachers than Grand Forks, Rossland
and Revelstoke.
The board met at 9.30 this morning
In Dr. Arthur's office, with W. Irvine in
the chair, and Dr. Arthur, A. D. Emory
and R. J. Steel present. The minutes
of the last meeting were read and approved. Consideration of the finance
committee's report, recommending payment of salaries and accounts for September, was deferred at the request of
the secretary, who read letters from
several members of the staff asking for
increases of salary to take effect at
The whole question of salaries was
then considered. There was no dispute
of the fact that increases were fairly
due. The only question was whether
Chey should goJnto effect now or In
January. Examwiation of the board's
finances showed that economies effected
during the year in other directions left
a small balance sufficient to allow for
the granting of the request.
Dr. Arthur remarked that while the
increases at the beginning of next year
would have to be given to the high
school staff and the principal of the
public school, they need not be given
at once, Inn. the case of the public
school assistants on smaller salaries
was different.
lt was then resolved unanimously
that an Increase of $10 per month to
each of the nine assistant teachers in
the public school be granted, to take
effect with payment of the September
There was also general assent to Dr.
Arthur's suggestion that such increases
take the place of increases in January
to the present beneficiaries, but that
the three teachers whose salaries are
not now increased receive additions
It was Resolved that half-holidays
for the Fair be granted the afternoons
of Thursday and  Friday.
The finance committee's report was
then adopted.
Dr. E. E. Arthur was elected to represent the bourd at the provincial trustees'
convention which opens ln New Westminster, Sept. 30th.
Friday. Oct. 11th, was fixed as the
date for the annual school field day,
which is about a fortnight earlier than
usual.   The board then adjourned.
American Crew of Salvador's Only Ship
Returned to San Francisco.
San Francisco. Sept. 17.���The officers,
oook and whole crew of the steam,
schooner President, which sailed from
this port two months ago. to become
the navy of the Salvadorean government, returned yesterday on the City of
Para, having abandoned the President
at the wharf ln Acnjutala, Salvador. As
Chief Engineer Geo. H. Lindsay walked
from the President along the wharf at
Acajutla to the City of Para, backed by
Martini Chrlstenseu and Harry Binner,
C. M. Nelson, tho cook and the crew, he
defied the gun fighters of President
Figueros to touch or Interfere with
them, waving in sign of his immunity
his international certificate as an engineer.
There was trouble aboard the President before she sailed from San Francisco, and when Lindsay delivered over
the President at Acajutla, he was ready
to throw up his job. With him In this
sentiment was the whole crew. Then,
Lindsay says, te Salvadoreans tried to
get his men drunk, but failed. Lindsay
promised lo moot the governor at Acajutla but instead, ho and his party went
on board the City of Para and sailed
for home.

There is a story told about an ancestor of the hero of T-ady smith which
shows that the Cochranes have always
liked a dash of political as well as military adventure. When this Dundonald
of the old days was Lord Cochrane he
was a candidate in Honlton, and took
the usual course of refusing to give any
bribes. As his opponent gave five
pounds a head, I^ord Cochrane suffered
defeat The latter, however, sent the
bellman round -the town, announcing
that all those who had voted for Lord
Cochrane would receive ten puier.as
apiece if they called on his agent. In
those pro-ballot days, of course it was
known how each man voted, and the
happy minority marched off to the
agent, each getting his ten guineas.
Natura'ly enough, the minority began
to think they had made a mistake, and
they resolved to rectify that mistake
at the first possible moment. In due
course an opportunity came; there was
another election. Lord Cochrane stood
again, and the voters, remembering his
lavish methods, asked him no questions,
but returned him with a roaring majority. Then they conveyed a delicate
hint to the noble lord, asking him what
he proposed to give them for this distinguished service.
"Not one farthing!*' roared his lordship.
The unhappy men reminded him that
he had paid ten guineas a head to the
minority at the previous election.
A complacent grin brightened the
face of the member as he gave this explanation : "The former gift was for
their disinterested conduct in not taking
the bribe of five pounds from the agents
of my opt>onents. For me now to pay
them would be a violation of my own
previously expressed principles."
Alexander Graham Bell, whose experiments promise to give him as wonderful
a success with the flying machine as
he had with the telephone, used to teach
the deaf and dumb���it was, in fact, his
work among the deaf and dumb that led
to the telephone's invention���and at a
dinner in Washington he told a deaf
and dumb story.
"This story illustrates," he began,
"the necessity for carrying on aeroplane experiments secretely. Were they
carried on publicly, interference would
ensue. Ignorance always causes interference.
"Many years ago an aged friend of
mine visited a church in Maine one
Sunday morning. As soon as the sermon began my friend, who was very
deaf, took from his pocket an ear
trumpet, in two parts, and proceeded
to screw the parts together.
"While he was engaged In this work
he noticed that the sexton from his
seat near the pulpit, kept frowning and
shaklnc his head at htm.
"Finally just as my friend got his
trumpet joined and made a motion as
If to put it to his ear, the sexton hastened to him and whispered fiercely: "Ye
can't play that here. If ye do I'll put
ye out.' "

There have been few more discredit
able episodes in Canadian political history than the recent effort of the Toronto Globe, followed by all the othel
Liberal organs of the Dominion to insinuate that H. L, Borden was concerned
in an attempt to corrupt certain Quebec constituencies and that his own
campaign in Halifax iu 1904 was not
The Globe sneers at Mr, Borden's ad

punishment  of   corruptionists,   and   replies   were  utterly  Irrelevent  Innuendo
against   unnamed   persons,   presumably

their methods of business in connection
with   investments   in   land   and   Umber
were thase of other Canadian  business
men.    If such be a crime possibly they
are guilty.    But the connection between
such   matters  and  cleanness iu  politics
Is  not  apparent.
But possibly the newspaper organs-:
are not wholly responsible for lhat feature of the campaign. When Mr. Aylesworlh appointed his special Liberal
insurance commission he committed
his party to a personal attack on Mr.
Foster, and the newspapers whose support, as Mr. Mowat would say "Is constant, not Intermittent," have no choici
but tu follow the lead.
The organized slander against Mr
Borden in connection with the Halifax
election, and lhe party's campaign fund
In Quebec, is on an even lower plain-
Immediately after the elections petitions wore filed against the return ol
many of the Nova Scotia Liberal mem
bers. Including Mr. Fielding, who, afte
dodging the Issue as Ions as possible.
was forced to resign.   The elections In
Halifax  were   protested   among   others.
and,  on   behalf   of   the   sitting   Liberal
members,  cross    petitions    were  filed
against the defeated Conservative candidates, one of whom was Mr.  Borden.
Since   that   date   the   trial   has   been
adjourned   and   postponed   many   times.
Appeals on technical  points have been
taken  to the supreme court of Canada
and   sent   back,   once   most   contemptuously,   tu   the   supreme  court   of   Nova
Scotia.       Kvery   request   for   postponement has  been  made by   the   Liberals.
Mr. Borden has done his best to secure
the hearing of the case.    An appeal by
the   Liberals   is   pending   now  which   is
almost certain to  be  delayed  until  the
House is in session.    The consequence
will  be that  two men  have  held  their
seats  through  the  whole  life of  parliament, who, there is every reason to believe, were corruptly elected.
But, while they have been fighting
desperately for delay and doing all in
their power to prevent a hearing of the
OflSS, the Liberals have not scrupled to
publish broadcast what they assert will
be said al the trial by their witnesses.
Iu connection with the Liberal sland
ers as to a Tory corruption fund in Quebec, the only evidence is thai of Hugh
Graham, proprietor of lhe Montreal
Star, who admits that he contributed
$21,000 to a fund. Mr. Graham has beeu
away from .Montreal while the slanders
have been in  circulation, but Lhe Slar,
undoubtedly under his Instructions, has
given  an emphatic  rebuke  to  the  mis-
re presentation   of   Mr.   Grahams   statement.   The sum of $81,000 was towards
a fund   for     legitimate     campaign  expenses lu  20  constituencies,     lt  Is  impossible of course to assert  that no  part
of that fund was wrongfully spent.    But
it is pointed out that H.  11. Ames, who
was sneered at by Liberals as a V. M.
C. A. candidate, admitted spending $7,-
000 for legitimate expenses in one division of Montreal city.   To Bay that Mr.
Graham's gift of  $21,000 to a fuud for
20 constituencies is proof of organised
corruption is childishly absurd, but the
Charges that have been bused on wilful
distortions   of   his   statements   are   wilfully   and   maliciously     false,     and  the
blame  must  be  borne not only  by the
hireling writer at Ottawa  who first uttered them, but by the reverend editor
of  the   Toronto  Globe   and   the   lower
satellites throughout the Dominion, who
published   them,   knowing   them   to   be

Petition to Liberate Man Who Has Spent
33 Years in Prison for Crimes
Due to Aberration.
Boston, Blast., Bent 17.���After thirty-
threo years Spent la solitary confinement
in a ceil at the Oharlestown State
prison, JeBHe Pomeroy, the most famous prisoner in the state, may yet have
cause for hoping Lhat his case will receive more lenient attention,
In many respects I'omeroy's history
presents one of the greatest tragedies
of American prisons. He entered his
cell as a boy of fourteen years. He is
now rapidly becoming aged, owing to
his seclusion. Year after year he has
himself addressed petitions to the governor asking for release. Owing to intense public feeling against the youthful atrocities, a lone succession of executive administrations have considered
his petitions somewhat as a perennial
His aged mother has for years joined
Mm In trying to eiTect his release
Pomeroy haa stated that he would go
to some isolated section of Maine and
would there engage in poultry raising.
Such liberation undoubtedly would
never be permitted by this state. More
than a year ago, however the New
York Herald, after a careful search for
facts of Pomeroy's long Incarceration,
pointed out that his Tmyish crimes were
such that cases like It today would
be treated In Institutions for the criminal insane.
Pomeroy's crimes were due to perversion and partly to his youth. Since
then Pomeroy has become a highly educated man.   Although he might still bo

a iiulillc menses; thoae who have studied IiIh caBe believe that the purpose of
the society might still be served If his
confinement could be made more lenient. To this end the American Society
for the Promotion of Criminal Anthropology has addressed a petition to the
governor asking for a mitigation of that
part of Pomeroy's sentence which relates to solitary confinement.
For the first time in many years
Pomeroy has tills week been taking exercise In the open air. Owing to the
reticence of prison officials regarding
Pomeroy it cannot he stated whether
Ihe authorities have suddenly granted
him this privilege or whether he himself has suddenly availed himself of the
For under ihe legal definition of "solitary confinement" there are privileges
which Pomeroy does not enjoy, many of
them from his own fault. His thirty-
three years' of isolation have made him
sullen and resentful anil a source of
much anxiety to his keepers. The at-
lldue of other prisoners toward him
also makes It difficult to extend to him
any freedom In the prison, which might
be given were he not so well known.
Pomeroy believes that powers over
which he had no control moved him
to his crimes when he was a boy, and
he cannot see the ethics or the justice
of a society that punishes him now.
But he looks to no future except death
and spends his time studying languages
and history-
Pomeroy Is a survival. The judges
who tried him, the attorney genera] and
the district attorney who prosecuted
him and the governor who spared his
life have all been dead for many years.
He was only thirteen years old when he
was first taken Into custody, charged
with torturing boys of from four to six
years. He was sent to a reform school
in Massachusetts, but after two years
was released. That was in 1874. Very
soon after he killed a five-year-old girl
and buried-her body In the cellar of his
father's store. On the following April
22ml he killed a five-year-old boy.
At the trial for this crime the defence was insanity. It was contended
that Pomeroy's brain was abnormal,
that he had no power of inhibition, and
no moral sense. Nevertheless he was
convicted and sentence to be hanged.
Chiefly because of his youth the sentence was commuteal by Governor nice
to life imprisonment.
During his confinement Pomery has
made sever al attempts to escape. In
one of them, in 1887, he used illuminating gas lo cause an explosion, but he
succeeded only in wrecking his cell aud
in nearly killing himself. Of late years
he is said to have become resigned to
his fate. The long years of reading and
study in his prison, where he has the
use of eight thousand volumes, have
developed his Intellect until, according
to those who have watched him. he is
a different being from the unnatural
boy of more than a quarter of a century ago.

Buckley Valley.
Alf. Bunker, formerly of this city, has
just returned from a lengthy visit to
Buckley Valley. As a matter of fact
Mr. Bunker has been a resident of
Buckley, having purchased a tract of
land from the government, on which he
will engage in farming as soon as the
railroad is built into that territory. He
speaks well of the farming possibilities
of that part of the province, but he believes it will never amount to anything
from a fruit growing point of view. Last
winter the thermometer ran down ta.
50 degrees below zero, which, of course,
is too cold to grow large fruits. The
smaller fruits, however, grow in profusion. He says he never saw raspberries, gooseberries, currants and
small fruits grow as large as they do

A gold brick worth $3,300 was at Uie
Royal Hank of Canada's Nelson branch
yesterday. It represented a month's
output of the Kootenay Hell mine in
Sheep Crock Valley, which has been
operated since last spring by r*\ H.
Nettleton under lease from the Bell
brothers of Salmo, who are theinsrl- es
lessees from Me.ssrs. Bennett, Drummond and Billings, tbe owners. The
brick does not represent the wholo output of the mine but only what could t e
treated at a mill with a capacity o* 12
tons a day and not operating for ai v-
thing like full time. The brick represents a little more than liOO tons of ere.
which is therefore worth between *16
and $17 a ton. Mr. Nettleton had a
bond as well as a lease, but a.-*- he was
very late in completing arrangeimnts
for operating he is not in a i.osition to
take up his bond. He left for tbe south
this morning. Other negotiations are
now in progress for the Koote.ny Bill,
but no definite agreement has bfcen concluded.
