The Lancaster House had a narrow escape from possible destruction last night about 8 o'clock.
One of tha guests left a lighted
electric light lying on his bed and
the lamp set fire to the bedding
Fortunately the trouble waB discovered before the fire had gained
any headway and tho burning bedclothes were tossed out on the
snow.
About the same hour W. J. Nelson, in passing the Bank of Toron
to, noticed that the premises were
filled with smoke. Some of the
bank officials were quickly brought
to the bank, when it was discovered that the stove doors had been
left open, which accounted for the
smoke.   No damage was done.

EAST COLUMBIA AVENUE.
V.&N. Phone 94. P.O. Box 616
In June last, just before the
strike, Messrs. Sullivan, Mahoney,
McCrae and Sorenson, four Rossland union miners had a contract
in the Josie drift of the Le Roi
mine.
The contract called for $6.50 per
foot, and the union men hired their
own muckers and paid them $3.50
per day.
The four miners unite in saying
that on the basis of the figures
given they were each making within a few cents one way or the other
oi $6.20 per day on  their contract.
Four Couer d' Alene scabs claim
that they recently undertook to
contract for a continuation of the
same work above referred to. They
state as the World is informed
that the price named to them for
the work was $12 per foot, but notwithstanding the high figure paid
them they were unable to make
the job pay, and they threw up the
contract. When confronted with
prices paid in June and the results
then attained, the only excuse the
scabs had to offer was that their
steel were no good, or were badly
tempered. If th - story told by
these industrious and experienced
soab miners is correct, it gives
some idea of the present cost of
mining in the Le Roi.
If you wish a dainty meal, call

TROUBLE AT NORTHPORT
Cause of the Shutdown Early in
the Week.
NOW IT IS THE WATER RIGHTS
Source of Supply Likely to Be Confiscated by the
Owner--A Cheerful Complication for the New
Manager-The End Is Not Yet.
Northport Nov. 23—The North-
port Smelting & Refining company
is in a fresh difficulty. Its water
supply is threatened by Robert
Morrill, owner of the Northport
Electric company, who owns Deep
creek falls, about a quarter of a
mile above the head of the smelter
company's flume.
Mr. Morrill is fresh from a victory over the Anaconda smelter of
Anaconda, Montana, from whom
he collected $50,000 in a suit over
real estate adjoining their plant,
and it is likely he will make things
extremely interesting for the
Northport smelter company. The
smelter gets its water supply and
that for the city's system, which it
owns, from Deep creek, through a
flume about a mile and a half long.
Mr. Morrill is building a sawmill at Deep creek falls and at 10
o'clock on Monday morning last he
found it necessary to close the
gates of  his   dam.     As a conse
quence the creek went dry and
the smelter water gauges began to
fall. The master mechanic and a
number of men went out to the
falls and requested Morrill's men
to open the gate of the dam, but
Morrill's men refused to be bluffed
and the smelter was compelled to
close down for some time, as the
water was not turned on again until 1 o'clock Monday afternoon In
the meantime, two of the furnaces
froze up and some other damage
was done to the plant.
Mr. Morrill's water right was located prior to that owned by tho
smelter company and it seems
likely that he will be able to do
pretty much as he likes with water
matters until the smelter company
acoede to whatever demands he
may make, as the Deep creek water
supply is practically the only one
available for the smelter's use unless they pump their water from
the Columbia at an enormous expense.   The end is not yet.
NOTES OF
THE MINES
Golden Monarch Near Ymir
—Poorman Mchinery-
Lardeau Shipments.
New York, Nov. 23,—According
to the World, heirs of the late Cornelius Vanderbilt must pay $361,-
803.43 into the coffers of the
United States. This is the total of
the inheritance tax fixed by the
federal government against the instate. The heirs have already
been compelled to pay a state tax
of $520,998. The legal expenses of
fighting the tax, which has been
carried into the highest courts of
the state and nation, will bring
the grand total up to one million
dollars.
Twenty two men are working on
the Golden Monaroh mine, near
Ymir. In the drift from No. 2 tunnel ore of a pay grade has been encountered. The road from the
mine to the railway has been
almost completed and as soon as
it is finished a trial shipment will
be made to   the   Trail  smelter.
The main shaft of the Poorman
mine is now down 50 feet, in good
ore, and most aatisfactory progress
is being made. The machinery
from the Granite mine was removed this week down hill to the
Poorman, where it is now being installed, and where it will materially facilitate operations.
Up to the present the Trout Lake
part of the Lardeau haB shipped to
the smelter 6,022,065 pounds of ore
valued at $444,090.45. This is
about 1\ cents pound or an average of $145 a ton. What district
in Kootenay can show a higher
average than that?—Trout Lake
Topic.

MUNICIPAL LIST.
The municipal labor party is
doing good work in canvassing
electors who are not registered at
tho city hall, and in supervising
the list of voters generally. There
is only a week left in which duly
qualified householders can register
and every effort should be made
to plane available voters on record.
The other work of the committee
is progressing favorably, and the
party will be in a good position for
the contest in January.
BANK LAW.
Some interesting legal points
were raised in a recent case at Vancouver decided by Mr. Justice
Drake this week.
The facts of the case as shown
by tbe judgment, were as follows:
Riohards and Riley had an account with the Bank of British
America opened on July 3, 1900.
Theae persons were partners in the
Strand hotel, and the account waB
so opened. The partners were both
to sign checks' in their individual
names and not in the partnership
name. Owing to an error in the
bank account the partners were
allowed to overdraw $199.97, and
this error was not discovered until
the end of the following month.
Richards opened an account with
the bank in his own name on the
24th of July 1900, before the partnership account was closed, and
when the overdraft on the partnership account was not made good,
th* bank on the 28th of August,
1900, transferred the sum of $199.97
from Richards' private account,
claiming they had a right to do so
under the circumstances.
The trial judge decided against
the bank's contention and the full
court has now upheld the original
judgment, dismissing the bank's
appeal with costs. The law is already fairly clear on the subject
and the judgment given decides no
new point,but tbe main question involved is of interest to the mercantile eommunity generally.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
E. V. Bodwell has swallowed his
compunctions and has consented to
enter the political arena at Victoria
in opposition to the government.
Incidentally, he will endeavor to
advance the interests of Jim Hill.—
Slocan Drill.
It is now reported that thc company formed some months ago to
promote the manufacture or production of liquid air has become
bankrupt. It ie not stated whether
the failure was due to an excess of
liquid in the stock or air in the
prospectus.
The great steel trust owns up to
earning $54,000,000 net in six
months. This is more than the
earnings of all the national banks
in the United States for a whole
year. And yet the steel trust got
into a squabble with its employes
over a little matter of wages.—
Phoenix Pioneer.
The State of Maine has a record
of twelve deaths through accident
in the woods during the deer-hunting Beacon, and in several cases
the men who did the shooting were
not discovered. These deplorable
results are due in part to the introduction of long-range rifles of
Hat trajectory and great penetrating power, and in partv to the
crowding of the woods with sports
men whose eyes are not trained by
practice, and who shoot at every
moving object.
Mining stock is too often manipulated in the interest of the few, to
the prejudice of the many. The
property of the company, if of any
value, oftentimes runs into debt, is
sold out and bought up in the interest of the few, but these methods
are perhaps less to be condemned
than the more vicious practice of
floating large stock schemes upon
worthless property, merely to market the stock for what it will bring,
or speculate in it on the boards.—
Lardeau Eagle.
The town is being flooded with
its annual supply of catalogues ot
Christmas goods from all parts of
tbe Dominion and elsewhere,
wherein all kinds of useful and
useless article are displayed in
most tempting manner at most
templing prioes. A great many
people, we are Borry to say, succumb to the temptation and send
their money away to the disadvantage not only of their town, but
very often to themselves. It is
quite true '' at in some instances
the price is a little less even with
postage and freight added, but if
everyone were to spend the money
they earn in the district at their
own stores, the storekeeper would
be able and willing to meet these
prices.—Kamloops Standard.

commeneed taking it about the firsi of November. I very soon noticed a radical

POLITICAL
SITUATION
George H. Cowan of Vancouver Gives His. Views
-Bodwell's Chances.
George F. Cowan of Vancouver
has been telling the Nelson Tribune what he thinks of the provincial political situation.
Mr. Cowan is something of a
politician himself and is supposed
to be fairly well in touch wilh the
moves of the men in the game and
for this reason his views may be
of some interest. In the outset he
was careful to say he did not speak
for any one but himself. He then
expressed the opinion that E. V.
Bodwell was the logical candidate
of the forces that were opposed to
the Dunsmuir administration, Being a Conservative he said it was but
natural thai he would like to see
a Conservative administration,
but there was no prospeot of this.
One difficulty was that there was
no provincial Conservative who
could claim sufficient precedence
over the others and set him up as
the- leader of an administration.
There were Conservatives who
might be considered as leaders
of factions, but none of them had
sufficient strength to lead the
whole party. Like a number of
other prominentConservatives.both
inside and outside the house, hs
said he was inclined to support the
Bodwell boom.
Tbe political situation he
sized up in this way: Bodwell will run in Victoria and be
elected. The government was
anxious to delay the bye-election
there as long as possible, but he
was confident it would be foreed to
issue the writ and have tho election
before the legislature meets. Once
in the house he figured that it
would be easy work for Bodwell to
bring about the defeat of the government. In fact he felt confident
that a man like Bodwell would develop such strength in the present
legislature that he would be able
to carry on the government without a general election. The new
movement to his mind meant a
straight, fight against Martiuism
and Dunsmuirism and its following would in a very great measure
be made up of the members of the
house who bolted the government
upon the railway issue. Mr. Cowan said he was aware that the two
political parties were in a measure
committed to party lines, but he
thought this little difficulty could
l>e got around. Personally he was not
in favor of party lines in, provincial
politics, and he was of the opinion
that a stable government could be
formed from the present members
of the. legislature without respect
' to their federal politics.

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 ereotion, 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. Pioked 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.
