will stop and their occupation will be

they are sub-lessees, they have a dl-
reel financial Interest in the success
of the work.
"Now, 0f course, the system cannot
be followed with success lu all fields.

puny operation wiih its costly incidentals, uml pay Interest on Investment
too, but they may give excellent returns to working lessees. If It bo
granted thai a company manager and
a wurklng lessee are equal ln effl-
clency, the latter has an Immense advantage In economy.
"With the close supervision that'la
only possible with a small force, many
olher economics* besides the saving of
superfluous salaries may be effected.
It Is possible to see that all ore taken
to the mill ls clean ore, and there Is
every Incentive to do so, as the returns depend entirely upon what is
mined.
One difficulty In the way at present
Is lhe scarcity of miners. The general
prosperity of the West on both sides
of the line has created a big demand
for labor, and good miners are hard
to get even at the highest wages.
"So far mining lessees in British
Columbia have enjoyed very favorable
terms. They hav epald a low royalty
as compared with that paid ln other
districts, and little ln thc way of development work has heen required of
them. There are no Indications of any
Increase In the royalties, but the mine
owners nre now becoming keener as
to the financial ability of the lessee
to fulfill hlB contract, and do work
(bat will benefit the property as well
as himself and give the owner a substantial return in development as well
as tho Bmall royally, which amounts
to little more, ln some cases, than Interest on capital already expended.
"With its limitations clearly understood and the need of economy and efficiency thoroughly appreciated, there
Is a splendid field In the Slocan fof
mining on the leasing system."

From C. P. R- t-oop.
W U. Itoss, M. 1*. P.. who left for
the cost on Saturday returned yesterday morning, says the Pernio Free
PreBS. When asked by our reporter as
to the truth of the report that the gov-
einnia-nt had decided to hold the general elections in December, Mr. Ross
smiled good naturedly and replied that
he knew nothing of it. and that he had
no doubt lhat the yarn had boon manufactured by Grit papers to make good
reading. He treated similarly the

reporter asked. "1 saw Mr. Green
about it," he replied, "and learned
thai this and other public construction

their conclusions on tho fact that tho

any other route There are $6,000
granted for the trail, half of which will

NEGRO  RIOT SUPPRESSED.
Attack on -areet Cars Hotly Resented
by  Militia.
Atlanta, Oil., Sept. 24.���Willi Hi companies of Infantry, one battery ot
light artillery and one squadron ol
cavalry and the entire police force ot
the clly still ou guard, Album early
today Is comparatively quiet. The negro trouble, while breaking out in sev-
oral sections during last night, Ib now
ultnost entirely abated, lly order of
the mayor Bullions huve beeu closed
until lurther notice and business
places, such ub reBtatirauts and all-
night drug stores, were closed early
ln the evening.
In the early part of the night there
were several cases where street cars
were Bhot at from ambush and a few
inoturmen and conductors refused to
continue on their cars. About 10
o'clock a negro, pursued by a crowd
of aboul 50 people ran Into the Marlon
hotel, where he was shot, and lt ls
thoughl latully Injured. A negro was
shot In the hip in McUanlels street,
hut the prompt arrival of the militia
saved him. A street car conductor
named White was shot by an unknown
negro, but his Injuries were not serious.
The number of killed all told Is still
placed at 10, but there is no way of
finding out the definite number, as
the negroes carried away their dead,
in many caseB fearing that the dead
would not receive proper burial. Six
bodies are at one local undertaking
establishment.
AI the request of the authorities the
newspapers issued no extra editions

Tournament Team Will Play All Other
Members Thursday.
The last sporting attraction of the
year ln Nelson is aunounced for
Thursday afternoon of this week,
which will be the last bUBiness men's
half-holiday for this  season.
It was stated when the NelBon
cricketers returned from the tournament at Victoria that they would
probably be challenged by those who
had not gone.
Such a match has since been arranged and play will begin Thursday
atternoon at 2 o'clock.
While it is true that an effort was
made to Bend the strongest possible
leant to the coast, several ot the best
were unable to go. and Ihe result of
the match Is by no means an assured
victory for the team that defeated
Portland,
Among those available for the Stay-
ai-llomos' team are Mason and Hardcastle, two good bowlers; Captain
Paiidun, a reliable wicket keeper and
a good bat; Cecil Bourke, K. H. Ley,
also a good bowler; Partington, Howe,

Vancouver, Sept. 24.���Desire Brothier was acquitted ol the charge of
forging a medical certificate by Judge
HeuderBon this morning, but was Immediately rearrested on another
charge, that of uttering a talse document. Judge Henderson acquitted
him on the-charge of forgery because
he found that the corroborative evidence required by law was not sufficient to establish guilt, but at the
same time he handled the prisoner
without gloves on the practical aspects of the evidence.
Judge Henderson then ordered the
prisoner to Btand up. "While I have
acquitted you," he said, "I don't think
1 should let you go without expressing
some opinion on this case. You will
understand why I have round It my
duty to acquit on this charge, yet
there haa been sutricient evidence
brought forward to convince me that
you are a dangerous man And a
menace to society. A man who would
not only connive at, but actually assist In the defilement ot his own sister ss -'ins to me to have about sounded the lowest depths or human degre-

Bass Fishing In Christina Lake���Continued Ore Development.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Grand ForkB. September 24.���W. M.
Wolverlon, who has resided at Christina lake for the laBt 10 years, ln
speaking to your correspondent last
evening about Christina lake, aald:
"About flvu years ago the Dominion
government put several thousand
young black bass fish Into Christina
lake for breeding purposes, and an order was Issued prohibiting tbe catching of this kind of fish ln that lake
for a period of five years, and as the
live years are now up black bass fishing is now the order of the day at
Christina lake. Some of the fish being caught are Bix inches ln length,
and they appear to be thriving well.
At a mammoth meeting of the local
labor union held here yesierday committees were appointed to investigate
M)e matter of Btartlng a co-operative
store here and to report with all possible despatch. It waB considered
that the 300 members ot the union
would be quite equal to subscribing a
sufficient amount of capital to start
the store. The local labor union ln
Grand Forks has grown to be a strong
organization and will yield quite an
influence hereafter In both municipal,
provincial and Dominion politics. At
Grand Forks its 300 members are
practically voting as a unit ln all matters that they deal with.
About 30 Hindoos arrived here yesterday to secure work on the Kettle
Valley Line railway. They were all
very orderly while in town.
George A. McLeod, accompanied by
Mr. Dunster, a mining engineer representing a strong syndicate in Michigan, have today returned from an inspection of Franklin camp.
The continued strikes of high grade
ore on the Maple Laeaf property are
phenomenal. No such ore was ever
found ln the Boundary before. The
main open cut on this property ls now
in 90 feet, 20 feet of which cut will
assay 20 per cent ln copper. There
are now 25 open cuts on this property, all ot which are In ore. On the
Union property, adjoining tbe Maple
Leaf, another rich strike of high grade
ore was made this week.
While doing development work on a
group of claims directly across the
river from Franklin City a big body
of copper ore was uncovered, which
assays 10 per cent ln copper, besides
paying values in gold and silver.
STRUCK   BY  WATERSPOUT.
Tobln as president ol the union. Tb*
selection wae made through the medium of r referendum vote. The election of Hlckey, lt Is thought, will be
of great significance to the shoe Industry in America, and the manufacturers are particularly interested, as
the change of administration Ib likely
to herald a change In the policy of the
union. During the seven years President Tobin waB at the helm labor
troubles between the boot and shoe-
workers and their employers were
comparatively few and unimportant,
the only considerable disturbance being the protracted struggle tn Lynn
over two years ago between rival labor organizations, which tied up the
industry ln that city for a year. Arbitration was favored by the Tobln administration, while one of the planks
In the Hlckey platform ls, "We will

Kansas City, Sept. 24.���With the
blowing of whistles and the ringing of
bells and the cheering of thousands
of persons who had gathered at the
river shore, the renewal of steamboat
traffic on the, Missouri river, after a
lapse of more than a decade, .was celebrated today, when the steamer Lora.
laden with freight from St. Louis,
docked at the wharf here. The trip
was made under the most unfavorable
circumstances, the nver being exceptionally low and Its channel unexplored for several years. The movement
to establish a boat line on the Missouri river grew out of the fight ot
Kansas City merchants for reduced
freight rates. Regular traffic between
here and St. Louis will begin as soon
as suitable boats can be obtained.

ALBERTA COAL LANDS
F. H. Clergue of Sault Ste. Marie Passes
Through Nelson, After Viewing
Acquisitions In Alberta.
F. H. Clergue, the great financier
who created the Industries of Sault
Ste. Marie, spent yesterday ln Nelson.
In his party were T. J. Drummond of
Montreal, Arthur Wilson ot London,
engineer, and H. C. Hamilton of Sault
St. Marie, Mr. Clergue's legal adviser.
They have travelled weBt in their private car, Maquet.
The principal object of the trip was
to visit the lands of the North West
Coal & Coke company, near Cowley,
Alta., upon which Mr. Clergue lately

engineers ln the field planning operations, and the properties will be thoroughly developed. Mr. Clergue has
also acquired the charter of the Great
West railway.
The party arrived In Nelson Saturday night and spent yesterday visiting the power plants at Bonnington
Falls. Mr. Clergue was greatly impressed with the magnificent water
power, as he has been with the indications of immense wealth waiting for
development in all parts of British
Columbia.
The party returned to the Strathcona ln the afternoon and left for the
coast last night.
Mr. H. E. Macdonnell, general
freight agent of the Canadian Pacific
railway, in charge ot the Kotenay division, has Just been advised by the
management of that company that the
Canadian Pacific have decided to assume risk of damage to freight by fire
while goods are In their possession,
either ln cars or warehouses, whether
such fire Ib caused by negligence of
the railway employees or otherwise.
The Canadian Pacific ls the first |
transportation company ln the world
to assume this responsibility, and aa
lt ls necessary for the railway company to cover this risk by Insurance,
It necessarily Involves a considerable
expense to them, but lt ls ot Incalculable benefit to shippers and consignees.
An Illustration ot this ls a fire some
years ago tn Hull, Que., where enormous quantities ot freight were burned up, and under the terms of the railway company's shipping contracts,
theyl were -relieved of responsibility
by the courts. A more recent case
wae a fire ln the Winnipeg sheds of
the Canadian Pacific ln January last
There were some heavy losses, a* this
was part ot the bonded shed, where a
large quantity of Import freight wan
stored, consignees not having cleared
and removed their goods.
The railway company were not liable, aad therefore declined to entertain clatms made by the owners of the
goods. The heavy losses sustained by
some consignees Induced the railway
company to take this position and to
voluntarily assume the cost of insurance by fire losses, and It Is to be expected that the public will appreciate
their action.

A  POOH  TEXT.
The Forestry coiiv_ntion wil) meet
ln Vancouver this week und will, in
its membership, bo thoroughly representative of those who have such
questions as the timber and forestry
possibilities of Itritish Columbia at
heart. The convention will be in no
sense a political gathering as it includes in its membership those who
think differently on question.s of party
politics, and who agree in the breadth
and scope of the subjects naturally
within the purview of their interests,
to rise above party issues and join intelligence with patriotism in the discussion of their affairs. Many of the
subjects to be discussed are of a purely technical nature and chiefly of Importance to those who are Interested
in forestry preservation and exploitation In the province.
It is a pity therefore to see a rabid
section of the opposition press choose
the convention as a text upon which
to hang a ferocious attack upon the
timber regulations in force In Hritish
Columbia at the present time and particularly to vent political venom and
spleen upon the chief commissioner of
lands and works in the provincial government. Nelson's mon ring paper exhibits Its rabid partisanship in an edl:
torial yesterday morning which is only
one of the many that are fast encouraging tlie conviction that the News
cannot be fair in its treatment of a
political opponent. Among it bilious
lubrications the following sentences
occur:
"Hritish Columbia is one of ihe few
countries that can now boast of really
great resources In marketable timber,
Heretofore little on no pains have been
taken to conserve ihis wealth. Within
the railway belt lhe Dominion government has enforced regulations regarding forest fires which have been the
means of protecting the limits situated therein, but elsewhere in the province, where the local authorities have
control, practically nothing has been
done, and year afler year it has been
neccessary to record enormous destruction of standing timber by forest
fires.
* *    ���
"It would probably be impossible lo
conceive of any system of dealing
with the timber resources of a country
more certain to result in tho dissipation of wealth than that devised or
accepted by Chief Commissioner
Green..
* ���   *
"It is, perhaps, too much to hope
that at this late hour Chief Commissioner Green can be persuaded to
take a bigger view of this question
than he hns hitherto, but at least we
may hope that the discussions will
have the effect of so arousing public
opinion that his opportunities for mischief will be speedily and effectively
curtailed."
To show how utterly misleading are
these statements a comparison of the
timber regulations of the Dominion
government, published as government
patronage in the advertising columns
of the News a few days ago, will show
that the system fn vogue In the prov
ince has many features which in no
way redound lo the discredit of the
provincial administration. To say
that what is right when done by the
Ottawa government, is wrong when
done hy the Victoria government ls
to display a fondness for political sophistry lhat is far from creditable.
The only persons deceived by it are
those who do not know the facts, and
to attempt to take advantage of the
natural uiilnformedness of the electorate Is one of the species of political
warfare for which the morning paper
is rapidly becoming not only notorious
but ridiculous.
When the News further slates that
no steps have been taken by the provincial government to prevent forest
fires it must be cither ignorantly or
deliberately deceiving the readers ot
that valuable paper. That it can be
Ignorant of the facts is a poor compliment lo lis Intelligence for within
a radius of less than 20 miles of the
city of Nelson during the past season,
the provincial gov-ernment has had
constantly employed a targe staff of
men fighting forest fires and the
amount of timber preserved from destruction by that element totals many
millions In this district alone. What
Is true of this district is true of all
of the other lumbering districts of the
province aud to attempt to deceive
ihe electorate by such misstatement
of facts is contemptible beneath contempt.
What the Dominion has done to protect the timber areas of the railway
lull, as it is called, is not clear though
the News seems to be well informed.
Perhaps a brief statement as to the
number of men employed and paid by
the Dominion authorities would be
convincing and could be easily obtained by those so eager to make gods ot
the Laurier administration. As It is,
the mere statement, standing as it
does alongside one misleading with
respect to the provincial authorities,
will be taken with the usual nuggets
of reserve.
While the News admits that it is
no part of the functions of the Forestry convention to discuss these matters or pass resolutions of a political
complexion, it cannot resist lhe temptation to havo a slap at the party in
power, and In misstating the facts it
Is only betraying the utter abandonment of principle which ls making It
p stench in the nostrils of people who
like  political  fair   play.
EXHIBITION AFTERMATH.
The correspondence appearing In
Ihe local press is evidence of Ilie unfortunate misunderstandings thai may
easily arise iu new communities over
rival claims for supremacy in the exhibition realm. While The Canadian
has no personal interest in the matters respecting which the Kaslo exhibitors complain it cannot do otherwise than open Its columns to the dis-
passloned complaint of the exhibitors
of District No. 2. The columns of this
paper are likewise open to those who
have explanations to offer as to how
things happened of which the Kaslo
exhibitors complain. While we do
not for a moment suggest lhat there
was any design on the part of anyone
to wrong the exhibitors from Knslo
who entered so heartily Into competition for the honors of the occasion, if
the complaints of the Kaslo people are
well founded it is evident that more
care must be exercised in the conduct
6f district exhibits In the future.
It might be well In this connection
to suggest that If there Is to be a succession of district exhibits at Nelson
or elsewhere in the community, the
directorate of the agricultural and industrial exhibit ions should embrace
membership outside of the city and
comprehensive of the varied parts of
ihe district expected lo lake part.-
We therefor hope that the unfortunate friction which has arisen will be
entirely forgotten and that both Kaslo
und Nelsou will tuke such steps us
may be necessary to arrange for u
mammoth district show next year to
embrace the whole products of this
section of Ihe Kootenays, and thai thfl
competition Will be so arranged as to
leave no room for sneh misunderstand
ing as hus arisen this year. To live
and learn is better than to live and
cherish ill will. SUQOeSB In life does
not consist iu no. making mistakes
but iu not repeating the errors. To
all and sundry therefor The Canadian
would say "Skiddool   Forget it."
EDITORIAL COMMENT.
It is now four days since the Liberals agreed lo choose Dr. (J. A. It
Hall ns their candidate at lhe forth"
coming elections aud not a word has
appeared editorially commending thu
choice, In the columns of the local
Liberal organ. The genial doctor,
knowing that "the publication of a
daily paper Is a business proposition
first lasi and always, may as well
make up his mind to separate himself
from some of his good money. "Ho
gives twice who gives quickly."
The Toronto Newa (Ind.) says:
"The truth Is that Mr. Horden is grow-
ing In the confidence of the country,
and In acceptance as the leader of his
party. Me has both force and reserve,
and in grasp of a question and power
of Ittcid statement no man In parliament, except, perhaps. Sir Richard
Cartwright, is his equal. He is also
developing lightness of touch, and a
capacity to deal only with essentials
in his speeches."
"Have you heard my daughter sing,
Mr. Potts?"
"Oh, yes, madam���I live only five
doors distant!"

SOCIALISM TURNED DOWN.
Summary of Address of   Trades
gress Forming New Party.
The inevitable test of strength
which every member of the trades and
labor congress knew must take place
before the close of the convention ol
last week accurred on Friday afternoon at Victoria, and resulted in a decisive defeat for the Socialist wing ot
ihu convention body.
My un overwhelming vote of G8 to
7 the oongreiB decided that In the now
lmity   which  lt  will launch,  tho  plat
form will he that ot the congress and
not thai of the Socialist party of Canada.    Vice   President  Simpson   of  Toronto, who is a Conservative-Socialist,
Haw   the tactical  error   which  a   vote
would   be  and   asked   Delegate   Petty-
piece to withdraw IiIh umendment, but
alt hough   IMtypleeo   did   so,   Delegale
inn inn   insisted   that  this  amendment
be  put with the result   above    mentioned.
There were two speeches made during  the afternoon   which  gave an  almost, tli-amatlc  louch   lo the   proceedings, tor lhe room was packed  in an-
11d pal lou  of a hot debate, and  even
Bootoliel   Leader   llawthuriithwaite  occupied a Keal among   the   spectators.
Vice  Presldenl   Simpson,  when the Issue wna fairly drawn, made a clear and
manly speech in  which he clearly defined   his  |K)sitiou.     lie   said   he   had
taken lhe pledge of the Socialist   party of Canada and could not, therefore,
support any one who was not of that.
party.
This formed the keynote of a reply
by the veteran trades unionist, Fleet
of Hamilton .who made a spirited attack
OD Simpson. His speech, however, did
not create any such enthusiasm as
that of President Verville, who embraced the opportunity to say a number of
things which might have been in his
mind since the convention opened. He
prefaced his remarks, after leaving the
chair,  by  the statement that he  had
The My CtnadUn
each uf th.m, and they were declared
elected amid great enthusiasm. Mr.
Simpson Is avowedly a Socialist, and
he won ail hearts by his candor and
hiB eloquence.
Delegate Gray ot Victoria was appointed vice president lor Brltlah Columbia, and the executive ot Brltlah
Columbia will be composed ot Messrs.
Sherman, Perry and Dutton.
8. H. Landers ot the Garment Workers' union wae elected fraternal delegate from the congress to the American Federation of Labor, and Winnipeg was decided-on as the next place
of meeting. Edmonton and Moose Jaw
were other places In nomination

There were loud crleB of "No, no,"
but Mr. Verville plainly Indicated tbat
he  was wear yof being  criticized   by
men  who  did not   appreciate  what  a
difficult   position   he   occupied   In   the
house  of  commons���a  position  which
he  described  as  one of  utter   frlend-
lcssness.    He urged some of the delegales to make the minding of their
own business one of the fundamental
i rules of COlldUCt    He  also  contrasted
the  attitude of  true  trades  unionists .
with   that   of  the  Socialists,  nnd   snld I
lhat   although   Socialist   Simpson   was
prevented by bis party from lending a
helping band tO htm (Verville) he
would gladly go to Toronto nnd usbIbI
Socialist Simpson, because he believed
he was working on behalf of tbe rights
of labor. He also made a spirited defence of his attitude tn the bouse, particularly In the Preston affair, and
said that both sides tried to make a
political tool out of hlm. Frequently
be was obliged to slop while the delegates cheered him enthusiastically.
A   frank   expression of   opinions  in
the  afternoon  greatly  facilitated  matters In the selection of officers at the
evening aud final session of the congress.    Although    President    Verville
stated explicitly   that  ho    would    not.
again accept he office,  lhe  delegates
brought such pressure to bear upon
him that before ihey mot It was generally conceded that be would he tho
unanimous choice for president.    This
being Ihe case, the logical thing to do
was to give  Mr. Simpson,    the    vice
president, bis old office, and Mr. Draper the  secretaryship  as  well.   When
it came to the nomination of officers
both Mr. Simpson and Mr. Hungerford
declined  to run  ,the latter saying he
was  not  a   candidate  for   any   office.
This left the coast clear for the unanimous   selection   of  Verville.   Simpson
and Draper, and a ballot was cast for
