Vancouver, Nov. 22.—Colonel
Prior was here yesterday on a bus-
in.r_ trip. He stated in an interview that he had no immediate
intention of resigning and taking
up provincial politics, althought
he had been approached to that
end. He had really thought
little about it yet. Asked regarding his support he said be could
not Sky definitely one way or the
other, but though it not likely
that he would support   Dunsmuir.
'inMew, Smith Curtis and others
returned today from Chilliwack,
where they had a mass meeting.
There were five hundred people
present and a motion was passed
almost unanimously indorsing the
want of confidence resolution passed by a mass meeting held in Victoria on tbe fifteenth.
The Amur brought two French
women passengers from Skagway
yesterday morning. One is the
daughter of a count and Jooth were
brought from Paris and were heing
forced to enter a house of ill fame
tt* Atlin. They appealed to the
atiuioritie- and were returning
heme.- The caBe created much
comment in the north.
DETAILS OFTHE YUKON PLOT
Canadian Government Knows the
Ringleaders.
SEATTLE FENIANS AND PRO-BOERS
The Papers of the Gang Were Seized by Canadian
Officials-Going to Ottawa to Report Direct-
To Seize Dawson.
ALL  KINDS   OF   DRY
W. P. LINGLE
WOOD
Vancouver, Nov. 22.—An official
of the Canadian government in the
Yukon who arrived on the Amur
is on his way to Ottawa to place
before the government the factB regarding tbe alleged Fenian conspiracy in the Yukon, and in the
course of a conversation made the
following statement:
The Canadian government is in
possession of the names of the ringleaders of the conspiracy, they have
not been arrested but can be at
any time. It would be unwise to
disclose these names to newspapers.
The conspirators were American
Fenians and pro-Boer sympathisers.
The Canadian government has
been watching developments for
some time.ha ving knowledge of every
move made by the conspirators
through its secret service officers.
When it was thought that matters
had gone far enough, and it was
learned that an attempt was made
to get in 200   Fenians   and  pro-
Boers from Seattle, the papers 0*
the gang were seized at Skagway
by tbe Canadian officials.
The American authorities, however, refused to give them up, as
they were seized in American
territory but the safe containing tbe
papers has been sealed and is retained in possession of the American officials, until matters can be
adjusted between the two governments. The papers disclose the
whole plot. The details will only
be disclosed to the government,
but generally speaking the idea
was to seize the banks, secure the
money and gold on deposit and
take possession of Oawson and the
mines.
It was not intended to try to hold
the Yukon more than three weeks.
It was believed that for tbat time
owing to British troops having to
pass through United States territory to get to the Yukon that the
conspirators would not be interrupted.

stations in the Cariboo country,

deal. On it depends the quantity
of water that will be available for
mining in thu summer. The heavy
snowfa 'Is also cause floods in the
southwestern counts districts. If
there were stations at the upper

and thus be able to make necessary
preparations for water and  floods.

Considering the very interesting
interview that Bernard Macdonald
could give at the present time if
he was so disposed, it is disappointing to find that all he is willing to
admit is that lie is eating three
meals a day—ub usual.
In the Spokesman of yesterday
Mr. Macdonald is reported as
stating:
"I have nothing to Bay. My
reason for resigning is a private
one between myself and the company, as are all others connected
with my service there. I was engaged by the company by tho year.
The year ends on December 10,
and on tnat day my connection
with the company will coaae. Further than that I have nothing to
say:"
When asked about his intentions for the future Mr. Macdonald
said:
"I have no intentions for tho
future other than that of eating
three square meals a day, as usual."

Reports received today from the
Jewel mine, Long Lake Camp, confirm the importance of the strike
made recently at that mine.

A writer in the Toronto World
tells a curiously interesting story
of the late Li Hung Chang. Tn
1879, when he was interviewing the
great Chinaman, somewhat of a departure waB made from stereotyped
methods. Earl Li was asked why
he loved General Gordon. For
some time he refused to answer
but at last he did so on condition
that his reason should not be divulged until after his death. The
promise was given, and the earl
then said that he loved General
Gordon with a touch of fear and
General Grant without any reservation whatever. lie added that
in previous states of existence, the
last of which he remembered well
the three had been brothers in one
family.
Naturally the newspaper man
pursued this extraordinary statement furthor, but Li would not tell
whose the family was nor to what
nationality it belonged. They
were all warriors, he said. Gordon
was the eldest, aud he ruled Grant
and Ll generally by love but sometimes by fear.
The story, which is given as a
simple statement without embellishment, hoars the earmarks of
truth. It shows very clearly that
the late U was a Buddhist, a fact
which it is believed is not generally known. The field of speculation which it opens up is of
oourse vast, but it would be interesting to know if Li had ever
discussed the same matter with
Gordon and Grant 'hemeelves. As
far as memory serves neither ever
referred to it in anything he wrote,
but both were alive when the great
Chinaman mado his astonishing
declaration.

THE LE ROI.
About a fortnight ago R. J.
Frecheville, who has had personal
control k)i the Le Roi mine and thu
gmelter at Northport Bince the 2(ith
of October, cabled his co-directors
in London that he had succeeded
in obtaining the services of J. H.
Mackenzie as general manager and
that the new man would take
charge some time between the 5th
and 10th of December. Mr. Frecheville further stat' d that sampling
the mine had been a very arduous
undertaking. "Important business," added the managing director, 'has interfered with it and it
cannot be completed until the end
of November."
Referring to the Le Roi accounts Mr. Frecheville stated that
th* audit could not be completed
before the end of the month and
"in the meantime I cannot give
reliable information."
November is nearly over and the
result of Mr. Frecheville's investigation must reach London before
long. It will probably explain
one or two matters of interest to
Rossland people and concerning
which they are at present very
much in the dark.
Previous to the last Le Roi
meeting in August the company
was a one man concern, and that
one man was Whitaker Wright.
Wright had Macdonald out here
and Macdonald had Kadish at
Northport, but the whole affair
waB a one man concern all the
same. It is more than likely that
the "so-called investigation," ns
Mr. Macdonald's paper put it, will
reveal a rather peculiar state of
affairs, but it is reasonably certain
that many of the practices prevailing in the mine and at the smelter
will be abolished and that the
company will no longer be a one
man concern.
Further developments of the situation here and in London are
anxiously awaited by all mining
men. The facts of the case cannot
be withheld much longer and we
fancy they will make very interesting reading when submitted to
the long suffering shareholders.
GOVERNMENT MINES.
The Toronto Globe, in a recent
editorial on "New Zealand's experiment," which we reprint today,
■ayi tbat the advances being attempted by the colony in the direction of state socialism could not
be tried with safety where the
authority of government extends
over a large area. But, says the
Globe, in a small community the
conditions are favorable for a mutual understanding between governing and governed and the relegation of many private and local
affairs to a central authority.
The case in point which the
Globe discusses, in the establishment by Premier Seddon of government coal mineB, and when the
position taken by the Toronto pa-
er on behalf of its president,
Robert Jaffray, in the Crow's
Nest coal deal is recalled, the present attitude of the Globe will be
better understood.
With its accustomed fairness,
the Globe has given the New Zealand policy the full benefit of its
columns and has discussed Mr.
Seddon's program from time to
time with impartiality. The argument advanced for not trying in
Canada what Mr. Seddon is attempting in New Zealand merely
points to the necessity of having
greater home rule for   the  prov
inces. If the Dominion,as a whole
is too big to have the necessary
"mutual understanding" that the
Globe refers to, the objection will
be easily overcome by giving the
provinces the power, providing
they now lack it, to deal with all
such matters.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Western papers are kicking because the Standard Oil company
has raised the price of petroleum
and gasolene 10 per cent, despile
the fact that production has doubled
and cost of refining has been reduced. Rockey needs the money.

There was an argument last
night over the correctness of a quotation in the World's thesis on
canines in last evening's paper,
"To the Manor born." The World
was wrong, the correct quotation is:
"To the Manner born," i. e., familiar with something from birth.
The longshoremen who scabbed
during the recent San Francisco
strike formed a "union" and refused to work with strikers upon
the latters' return. The scabs
struck because a union engineer
was hired, and the latter was instantly discharged. Of course, the
bosses favored the scab "union."
A Texas man has invented an
attachment for printing presses
which will do away with newspaper mailers completely. The
contrivance stamps the names of
the subscribers on the upper side
margin of the papers, keeping up
with the full speed of the best
presses.
There are 25 Trades and Labor
councils in Canada. The Toronto
Trades council is the oldest, having
Deen organized in 1881. Hamilton
had a central Labor union which
was organized in the early '60's,
and remained in existence till the
formation of the present Trades
and Labor council in that city in
1881, The Victoria Trades and
Labor council was formed in Decern ber,1889.

The Smuggler-Union mine at
Telluride, Colorado, was the scene
ot a terrible calamity on Wednesday when the head works caught
fire and many of the miners, who
had just gone on shift, were smothered to death. What with possible
dangers from the surface and the
many known dangers he has to
face down in the mine workings,
the miner of today takes big
chances and very fairly earns his
pay. He should not be obliged to
go on strike to get it.

COMMUNICATION.
Editor Evkning World.
Dear Sir:—Kindly allow me
space in your valuable paper to
continue the questions regarding
advertising by merchants, found
in the editorial columns of the
morning Miner. It sounds very
much to me like a challenge to
the mercantile class to advertise
irfits columns only, and patronize
that paper or else be blacklisted
from the scab trade on the hill.
Poor, poor mode indeed of securing
patronage, and one which every
merchant aud ireethinking man
should resent with scorn. It is
said that drowning in«n clutch at
strawB, therefore we can overlook
the absurd methods of the editor
in chief, in securing patronage,
knowing as be does that some
three-fourths of his subscriptions
in    the   city have fallen off.
But to come to the question:—
1—Are the mines working?
Yes, some of them but not to much
extent, and certainly not satisfactorily.
" 2—How many men are employed? Well that's a tickler. Barney
isn't any way. Vou know there
are men and men, and, judging
from the conduct of the class on
the hill, there are very few men
working.
3—Are they non-union or union
men? Oh! Mr. Questioner 1 tbey
are certainly non-union. What
other class could you expect from
Joplin?
4—Who are the non-union
men likely to patronize, when they
have purchases to make? Well,
judging from the two last paydays
I would answer, the gin shops
only and perhaps a few other
joints in the east end. It is a well
knefwn fact that what little money
the foreigners do earn here, they
will hang on to it to take them
from the city with all speed when
the collapse oomes.
Now an additional question or
two—when iB that undesirable
element going to have Durchases
to make, that will benefit the merchants of this city?
That is a question which no
one can answer judging from their
actions in the purchasing business
since they have been imported.
Two of the "'Miner's" fat pay days,
have passed and gone, and many
are the merchants who declare that
business was even a little duller
than usual, instead of brisk and
lively as it used to be on that
eventful day.
The Miner thinks that the
merchants of this city can easily
arrive at answers to thesequestions.
Very true. They are answered,
and answered truly too. Merchants and all classes of business
men admire a man who rustles
honestly for the welfare of his
journal and strives to give it first
standing as a newspaper and as a
paying proposition, but when that
object cannot be attained, and the
desired patronage secured without
such hints being thrown out as appear from time to time in the editorial columns, then it is time the
editor took a trip south to join his
other friends who have gone before.
Thanking you, Mr. Editor, for
the permitted space,
I am, yours, Ac.
Intekkhtkd.

board with profit at 10s. The inadequate supply and the increasing demand had brought about an
undesirable situation. There was
a combination of coal dealers, and
the mine owners were working in
unison with them, the result being
that abnormally high prices were
charged to the consumers.
He declared that opening a State
coal mine would ameliorate, if it
did not remove, the .evil. The
trend of opinion is shown by the
free prediction that in the course of
time, and should it be necessary,
the government could, in addition
to supplying State demands, extend the output so as to enable the
coal to be supplied to householders
at reasonable rates. Another reason given for the State stepping in
was the necessity that existed for
having a reserve of coal at least at
the four centers to meet contingencies that might arise. At the
present time the arrival of extra
steamers and vessels requiring coal
interferes with the ordinary demand and a coal famine ensues.
The boldness of such departures
may Beem appalling to large
nations, where interests are so
diversified that they cannot be
supervised from a government
center. But in a small community
the conditions are favorable for a
mutual understanding between
governing and governed, and the
relegation of many private and local affairs to a central authority.—

THE LATEST
DEPARTURE
Government Coal Mines in
New Zealand - What
the Globe Says.
The colony of New Zealand is
making advances in the direction
of State Socialism, which could not
be attempted with safety where the
authority of government extends
over a large area. The State-
owned railway, with its varied and
extensive requirements, has led to
further extensions of the sphere of
government. The latest departure
is a project for the establishment
of government coal mines. Tbe
annual consumption of coal for the
various branches of the public ser-
vico is 150,000 tons, and the railway alone requires 100,000 tons.
In the budget statement of Hon.
R. Seddon, premier and treasurer,
the following pointed declaration
was made: "The time has arrived
when the colony should supply itself with coal. The output at
present doeB not adequately meet
requirements. Private enterprise
is not meeting general and increased demands." The premier goes
on in the Bame definite way to explain that for coal delivered at the
government steamers at Greymouth
the government was asked 17s Od a
ton, and it was well known that
the same  coal   could   be  put on

Eye on Meteor
METEOR
is the new high-grade mining
camp in the south half of the Colville Reservation, seven miles west of the Columbia river, eight miles southwest of Daisy and 28
miles by good road from Meyers Falls. The town-
site is in the centre of tne rich aggregation of
mines comprising the Meteor, Stray Dog, White
Swan and Given groups, all of which are working
in high-grade shipping ore. A great number of
very promising properties are opening up in the
vicinity. It is surrounded by a splendid agricultural, fruit growing and stock raising country,
unequalled in the northwest, and has a splendid
supply of timber for building and mining purposes, together with unlimited water power near
It has already, besides a store, a number of buildings in course of erection, and a telephone service,
saw mill, etc., will be in operation within a short
time. Meteor is a high grade camp of the real
Leadville type, the ores mined being gold, silver,
lead and copper. Picked assays have given as high
as $140,000 to the ton, the average of the camp
being about $35. You can't afford to forget Meteor.
