AN EPISODE AT TEE
Ihe Attorney-General to the
Fore.
GENTLEMANJOEMARTIN
The Renowned Politician Discourses on
Politics, Whereupon He Is
Extinguished.
"Tlio Hon. Joseph Martin was received with c'leers. He expressed the
pleusuro, etc. The Attoruey-General
then gave nn interesting historical
sketch ot tho progress of constitutional
government in Canada."
Thus tho KoHslaud Miner.
Hero is a truo, unboodlarised account of tho attorney Qeneral' 1 speeoh.
After indulging in a few common-
plaoe generalities, that worthy launch
ed forth into politics (a subji
fully avoided by the otbor speakers)
and continued to such length that his
audiense began to tire. Murmurs of
disapproval, suggestions of "next
man" and ���'timo," finally snatches of
songs, intorludod tho discourse of tlio
Mniiitobiiu Demosthenes until at length
his angry passions rose aud he begun
to launch invectives at tho heads of his
audience.
"You white shirted hoboes ;you re pre
sent tho gentlemen of the little town of
Rossland, I represent the majority of
tlio voters of the Province and I can
tell you that your town wont get a
cent of tho money appropriated for it
by tbo 'ovornment." The proceedings began to get lively and some of
those present thinking that tho hon.
gentleman was suffering from a nervous headache conducted him into retirement.
Then a further altercation arose between Mr. Martin and a gentleman
who had requested him to withdraw
a certain statement, (which it would
be unwise to publish) made by him.
Mr. Martin refused; gentleman
smacked his face ; Martin retaliated;
scrap; end of first round.
The peace-makers here intervened
and James of that ilk lead his brother
back again. Tho Attoruoy-Gouoral informed the revellers tbat Bossland
would havo her appropriation and that
the "blaok coated gentlemen could go
to tho ."
Here eudeth tbe lesson !
Though this account may have its
humorous side thero wore some gentleman iu town who took a different viow
of tho case, saying that it was the
most scaudalous exhibition ever witnessed at a public banquet.
tryand enterprise and to also pav a tribute of respect tn the individual merit
of the guest of the evening as a man.
Tho tables were four in number.
Three of theso tables rau around
three sides of the room nnd in tho
center was one loug table. At the
bean of the table on tho north side,
facing tho guests sat bis worship,
Mayoi A. S. Goodove, as the chairman of tho occasion. On his worship's
riuht was the guosc of tho evening,
Hon. 0. H. Mackintosh, und Roderick
Robertson, James Martin, M. P. P.,
adn the Hon. D. M. Eberts, M. P. P.,
To tho left of the mayor were John
R. Hastings, lion. Joseph Martin, W,
A. Carlyle Rev. H. Irwin and \V. J.
Nelson. Tho vice chair was filled by
Mr. J. S. 0. Eraser. Tho menu was
iu the Allau's best style and the attendance was all that could ho desired. Th�� menu cards were prettily
gotten up ond each one contained a
"photograph" of the Governor, with
his well-known signature uuderueath
it. The banquetting committee's only
regret was that the limited seating capacity obliged them to restrict the
attendance to 120 guests.
The tables were beautifully decorated. The dinner came to an end at 11
p. m., mid at its conclusion toasts
and speeches alternated till daylight.

After
Montreal,   Juue   20.���Word was ra-
coived in the city today that   Admiral
Bedford,     commanding     the   British
North   Atlantic   squadron,     had   bis
doubts abont the advisability of trying
to bring the larger ships of his fleet up
the river to Montreal if  ho visits  this
t care-[ port in July.    Although   nothing   has
| vet been decided   about   tho   proposed
j visit of tho squadron to this port,   Ad-
imral Bedford   thinks   ot   sailing   di-
i rect to   Montreal from Sydney, C. R,
! where   he   will   bo   on July  5.    This
j means that the fleet,   or   tho  portion
.of it that can como np the   river  after
making a stop at (Quebec would   arrive
about   the   middle   of     tho     month.

Three Persons Arrested For Implication in the Gold Robbery.
San Francisco, Juuo 21.���The steamer Australia arrived hero today from
Honolulu and brings word that the
warship Philadelphia sailed from Honolulu for San Francisco Jnne 11. Owing to tho foul condition of her bottom, tho Philadelphia will not be
speeded on her jouruey. S. M. Damon, minister of finance of Hawaii, was
a  passenger on the Australia.
Ou arrival of the steamer Australia
local dectootives arrested three persons
supposed to bo implicated iu the robbery which occurred on board the
steamer Alameda on her voyage from
Australia to ibis oity, when 125,000
wafl in some mysterious way removed
from vault room of the vessel.
The money was part of a shipment
of $1,000,000 from Australia to a local
bank. Tbe robbery was not discovered until tho Alameda almost reached
tbis city, when the steward, desiring
some wine, entered tbe vault with the
purser, who discovered the loss.
The missiug packet could not be traoed here but Honolulu detectives, upon
information furnished by tbe local police, believe they know who the guilty
persons are.
When tbe Alemeda arived at Honolulu, one of the passengers to leave the
vessel was an ex convict from Australia. He spent money lavishly but
nothing of the robbery being known
at that time little attention was paid
to him. A few days later the steame:
Gaelic stopped at Honolulu on her way
to China uiii Japan and the ex conviot
took passage ou her. He paid several
debts with new English sovereigns
and wheu the robbery story reachod
Honolulu, the deteotives began a
Beaton for the accomplice of the convict
and furnished such information to the
local police that on the Australia's
arrival throe men woro takon into��cus-
tody and are now being questioned.
What tho outcome of the inquiry will
be cannot be stated at this writing.
a week's adjournment the arbitration committee met for a short time today, Dr. Zorn, of the German delegations and, Frederick Holies of the
United States delegation attending.
Mr. Holies expressed himself as satisfied with the results of the trip he
took to Berlin in company with Dr.
Zorn and the German delegates have
beeu instructed to take part in the
deliberations of the arbitration com
mittee, which will now continue brisk
work pending the definite decision of
Germany.
That disarmament oommittee, to
which was submitted the ciroular of
Count Muravieff, has considered the
second, third and fourth paragraphs in
sub-committee, the result being a negative vote upon all three, on the
ground that it would be impossible to
decide upon a satisfactory plan for
oheoking the continued improvements
in explosive ordinances. Tbis decision will bo submitted to tbe oommittee tomorrow. The first paragraph of
the ciroular, which proposes to arrest
tbe increase in land and sea forces and
war budgets has been touohed.
The Russians it is said intended to
introduce fresh proposals and it is not
doubted that the conference will reach
important conclusions on the last four
paragraphs of the circular suppleuent-
ing the Geneva Convention and the
Brussels Conference, and providing
for mediation and arbitration.

Views on the Subjeot.
Chicago, Juno 21 ���The Hon. Thomas
Green way, premier of Manitoba, who
passed though Chicago today eu route
from New York to Winnipeg was
seen and when asked regarding the
boundary dispute between the United
States and Canada said: "I believe
that the matter will soon be settled. I
don't understand why the country
has beeu so indifferent in arbitrating
the affair. The sooner the oountries
come to some conclusion on the subject tho better it would be for all of
us. I am inclined to believe tbat
nothing in the nature of au Anglo-
American alliance can be ever thought
of nntil that boundary dispute is settled. As long as no decision is
reached the people of both countries
will have a r ather luke warm affection for each other. Judging from
what haB beeu done iu the last few
weeks by the representatives of Canada and the United States. I don't
think tbat the time is far off when
everything will be amicably settled.
POSTOFFIOE THIEVES.
Chicago Police Make an Important Arrest Yesterday.
Ohioago, Ills., Jnne 21.���What is
regarded as one of the boldest ol
robberies in the history of the Ohioago
postoffices was detected yesterday and
two drivers of mail wagons, Walter
Porter and John Newman, were arrested ; an immense quantity of letters
aud many money orders and checks
were found in a lodging house at 260
Halstead street where the two men
occupied a room. There were letters
checkB and money ordorB intended for
nearly every town in the Union and
all parts of Europe. All the mail was
taken iu pouoheB while in transit between the postoffice aud railway stations. Th i prisoners will not admit
that they stole auv large sums of
money but declare they would have
been richer if their Bobeme had not
been discovered so soon. When arrested they were preparing to destroy the
mail matter and had hidden most of it
in sacks on an attic in a Halstead
street lodging houfie. There wore over
IB,000 of the stolen letters.
LOCOMOTIVE FOR   A PACER.
Brussels, June 21 ���Advices received
i here from  the Congo state   that   the
Khalifa has recruited  40,000 men and
crossed the White Nile,  below Khar-
j toum, capturing the Island of Abia in I this afternoon in 1 tOTs, the fastest time

New York, June 21.���Ohas. Mnrphy
rode the mile on a bioycle behind a lo-
oomotive of the Long  Island Railroad
Manila, June 21.���9 p. m.���The
insurgent army has taken to tbe
swamps and hills beyond Imus. The
largest lorce iB supposed to be in the
neighborhood of San Fernando to Mal-
abon, holding a position more towards
tbe A Ike.
General Wheaton returned to Imus
biinging three men who were wouuded
in yesterday's fighting. The heavy
rains that fall nightly make campaign
ing uncomfortable. Tbe roads are still
good but the rice fields adjoining
them are pools of water. The Filipinos will not fight unless they can
meet the American troops in positions
most advantageous to themselves or
take the reconnoitring bodies into ambuscade. It is impossible to learn
what effeot the recent defeat has had
upon their leaders. This should be
disheartening for they bad boasted the
Amerioans could never conquer the
provinoe of Oavite, Aguinaldo's home
oountry. where he always worsted the
Spaniards. General Otis recently re
oeived a letter signed by a native
woman of the provinoe declaring that
if all men were killed, the women
would still keep up the fight against
their enemies. :-
Copies of tbe insurgents' orgac, In-
dependenoia, show that the Filipinos'
hopes of sneoess are kept aflame by
political movements in America.
The Independenoia prints reports of
alleged speeohes made at different
places in the United Statos denouncing the war and it asserts that they
represent American sentiments.
It declares also that tbe Filipinos
will continue the war until the next
presidential campaign, whioh is sure
to result in a decision to withdraw tbe
American troops from the Philiupines.
It is reported tbat the Spanish garrison at Balea, in tha province of Principe on the cost of Luzon, which had
beoome roduced to SO men finally surrendered to the Filipinos after holding
out for a year.
Tbe Filipinos imprisoned two Englishmen on tbe Island of Samar, southwest of Luzon. The British first
class oruiser Grafton came from
Cebu and her commander demanded
their release. When thiB was refused
he landed a force of marines and cleared his ship for action, whereupon the
Englishmen were banded over.
TWO     AGITATORS     RELEASED.
Two Counts Who Took Part in the
Autenil Disturbance.
Paris, June 21.���Comte de Dion and
Oomte d'Aubigny who were sentenced
June 16, to two weeks imprisonment
and to pay one hundred fiancs fiua after having been oonvioted of complicity in the disturbance at Auteml wore
released from prison this morning. A
few of their relatives aud friends
awaited them at the prison doors. The
two men apparently havo not suffered
from confinement. Thev weut to the
Automobile Club where a lunoheon
was given by the members iu honor of
their release.
Oomte de Dion, afterwards visited
the Automobile Exhibition where he
was warmly greeted.
VON BUELOW'S SPEEOH.
At the German Reichstag Regarding
the New Purobases.
Berlin. June 21.���During the course
of his remarks, Baron Von Buelow
said: "We hold it to be our first, duty
to see that onr relations with other
poweia are undisturbed by tbe new acquisition and hope that our relations
with the immediate neighbors of tbe
islands namely, the Americans aud
Japanese will ouly become more intimate. We have not thought of placing ourBolves in opposition to the
Americans in the South Pacific, and
we as little wish to prejudice American interests as America contemplates
injuring ns without cause or reason.
We shall meet the active and talented
Japanese with sincere sympathy.
There is no reason why on the basis
of mutual  fairness  and  respect,
should not side by side, forward tho
works of peace aud civilization. Wo
hope through the treaty, which harmoniously ends the political and economical differences, that the relations
between tbo Germans and Spaniards
will become on.> of the friendliest description. The business concluded
with Spain was an honorable transaction in which neither bested tho other.
For Spaiu the Islands woro only the
elements of a ruined building, Tbey
are tho pillars of tlio arch of a now
fabric with a great future now, please
God."
During the course of the debate Herr
Liohknecht, socialist, was called to
order, for declaring tho government
would be better employed in "removing the terrible evils existing at
home," and declaring tho colonial
polioy of tha ministers was ridiculous
and despicable.

effect tbat young Chaso was ill and
that his father as alleged had been

statement which impressed the polios.
It was that his falher bad never ill-

VENEZUELA CASE
ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS GOING
ON WELL.
Oontinuation of the Speech of the British
Attoruej-Gsneral, Sir Richard
Webster.
Puris, Juno 21.���The Venezuelan
boundary commission reassembled at 11
o'clock this morning and Sir Richard
Webster, the British Attorney-General
resumed his speech in behalf of the
case of Great Britain, dealing with tho
period from 1500 to 1687.
He said Great Britain was unable
to rely on the Spanish or Venezuelan
control and was compelled to fall back
upon the discovery and circumnavigation so called of the unit of Guiana
and Venezuela, arguing that Guiana
was a defined area, that Spain bad
discovered that defined aron and hnd
taken part in tbe name of the whole
taking suoh possessiou as to entitle
them to the whole. In close detail,
Sir Richard Webster examined the
work of the various exr.lorors of the
period upon whom Veueznela relied,
claiming they were not relevant to
the territory of Guiana, adding that
tho statements made before tho United
States commission must not be used
in argument against Great Britain as
frequent deductions were made which
were totally unsupported, as Justice
Brewer, a former member of that commission, would doubtless remember.
According to the counsol for Great
Britain, the first explorer who really
reached Guiana was DeBerrio, aud his
expedition was Intended, Sir Richard
added, to apply to a different part of
the country and for a different object
than that alleged by Venezuela who
sought to apply it to a small district.
Counsol protcstod its being piocod on,
so us to establish th:s so-called Spanish
title,, aud further asserted: "That
it had failed miflerably, as both tho
Dutch aud Spanish historian agreed
that there was only one Spanish sot.

British Sloop Buzzard Leaves
for Treaty Coast.
TERRITORIAL     RIGHTS
French Oomuiodore Had a Boat  Load of
Armed Men Remove Fishing Nets
of the Settlers.
St.- Johns, Nfld., June 21.���The
British sloop Buzzard and the special
service vessel Columbine left St. Johns
yesterday for Bay of Islands to enquire
into the alleged misconduct of French
war vessels on the treaty coast. A
colonial magistrate reports that the
French commodore has had a boat load
of armed men to remove the fishing
nets of the settlers, against which the
colonial government will protest as an
assumption of territorial right" by the
French. Colonial agitation on the matter is very great
St. Johns, Nfld.,June 21.���The gravity of the Bituation arising out of the
French assumptiou of territorial rights
on the treaty ooast is increasing steadily. Commodore G. A. Gifford, commanding the British squadron, during
the fishing soasou, couforred today on
the subject with the Governor Sir
Hugh McOallum and tho colonial oab-
inet. As a result of the confereuoe
strong representations were wired tbe

ouy. An answer is expected tomorrow.

Work on the Treaty Between Bermuda
and the U.   S.

hero to open negotiations for a reciprocity treaty. Accompanied by Mr.
Tower, the British charge, who will
represent the home government in the
negotiations. The members of the
commission called at tbe state department today and met Colonel Hay and
Commissioner KasBon
The conference on reciprocity, schedules will uot being until next week.
Tbe reciprocity treaty for British
Guiana has been completed and copies of the final draft has been forwarded to London and Guiana for approval. This was a step of precaution,
although no doubt is felt as to tbe
approval. When received the treaty
will be signed by Mi. KasBon and Mr.
Tower repiesenting the two government. The details of the Guiana treaty
like thoso of the Barbadoes are withhold from publication until the treaties
are submitted to the Senate. In well-
informed ciroles, however, the understanding prevails that in the Barbadoes treaty 12 per cent was the basis
of reduction allowed by the United
States. Tbe Dingley tariff law allowed
not exceeding 20 per cent exemption
of tbe regular dutieB.
The Jamaican commisssion was to
have to held another conference today
to continue the treaty negotiations.
Tho matter went ever, however, owing to the attention which is being
given to the reciprocity lists presented
by tho Frenoh authorities. Although
tho French negotiations are prooeoding
satisfactorily, it is hardly expeoted
that a ti-eaty can be signed before the
miudle of next month.

DISAPPOINTING.
Canada has  not beon as happy  in
her   tariff   preterential to the  Mother
Oountry  as  was    expeoted.    For    a
great many years past our   trade with
the United   States   has been   steadily
growing, while that   with Great Britain has either   beeu standing  still   or
falling off.   With our  increasing population it was   natural that our trade
should expand, and   it   was  desirable
that our own   people should get a full
measure of  the  increase.   Bnt   much
to the mortifioation  of her   Majesty's
loyal and devoted  Canadian  subjects,
the United States seemed to attraot all
of it, and to the  extent of this trade a
foreign   country   was profiting at  the
expense of Great Britain.    In a  burst
of Jubilee enthusiasm  we  thought  to
put an end to this by a preferential of
twenty-five per oent. ; but  disappointment still pursues us, for the trend  is
still   towards   our    neighbors,     with
whom our trade is ever on the increase.
Before   effeot   oould   be given to the
preference   it   was   necessary to    denounce a   trade treaty   between   Germany and Great  Britain,  made as far
back as 1865.   This  waB done, greatly
to the annoyance of   Germany,   whose
Government early   signified an   intention to discriminate   against   Oanada.
They were induced to   reconsider  this
so far as to entertain   the   proposition
to make a new   treaty,   and   for some
months it was supposed negotiations to
this end were  being   actively   carried
on.    We get an intimation  of  the result in a cable  published  in   yesterday's  Miner,   to  the  effeot  that  the
effort  of  the  Agrarian party in    the
German Parliament, to exclude Colonies from the benefits of the treaty, has
been defeated.   We  only lay up more
disappointment   for ourselves  if  wa
hasten to assnme from this tbat  Canada    is basking  in    German  favor.
This only means that the Government
have preserved the treaty in the  form
in   which  it   was    submitted.    Tbat
form is none too  favorable to Oanada.
as it iB ;specially   provided   that  only
those British Colonies; which have not
differentiated  in   favor of the Mother
Country shall participate.in tbe privileges.    When   a party   in   the Legislature feels strong enough   to attempt to
exclude all the colonies, we  may  conclude that an   offending one like Canada will not be regarded with favor.
Our preference has not stopped the
flow of trade to the United States, to
the advantage of the Mother Country,
and has excited the animosity of Germany to such an extent that we are
not to be admitted to tbe benefits of
this new treaty.
the last of tbo obstacles, and now nothing remains but to procure tho Imperial Act necessary to give effect to the
wishes of tho colonies that have signified their adhesion to tho fedoial
principle. It was hoped that tbis
could be obtained during tho proseut
session of the Imperial Parhamont,
and it is quite possible that it may ;
but the session is well advanced, there
is much of home interest still to do,
and it need not be surprising if Australian Federation, that has been hanging since lbtlO, may have to go over
another year before becoming an accomplished fact.
New South Wales has cast a largo minority vote, which one disposed to take a
gloomy view might say bodes no good
to the experiment of federation. If
Nova Scotia hud been asked to pronounce on the federation of the Dominion, the vote would have almost
been unanimous against it; yet today
no Province is more content with the
situation. Thero may be grumbling
at first,but as the bouefits of federation
become apparent New South Wales
will rejoice at the stop she has just
taken.

The Miner thought at the   timo aud
still thinks a grave  mistake was made
in not having the Province  represented at the Greater Britain Mining  Exhibit at Earl's Oourt,opeued on the first
of May.    A display of British Columbia's   mineral   wealth   would accomplish more gojd there   than   at   Paris.
But no step was taken.   The Miner understands   that   it was   quietly  given
out in excuse for the Govenmeut  that
the   Earl's Court   Exhibit was a fake.
The men associated with it  are nn assurance of its respectability,   and as to
its popularity it is  only   necessary   to
say   that   its daily visitors have numbered as high   as 92,000.    Speaking of
this Exhibition at  Duluth   a few days
ago,  Ool.   Hillyer,   President  of   the
AmerioanCanadian Gold Mining Company,   said:   'I   consider   it a  shame
aud a disgrace that neither Ontario nor
a single province in Canada   is   repre
sented.    I hope that  this is not due to
any inefficiency on the part of the Provincial Governments   or the Bureau of
Mines.    I   understand the information
is given that the   Government intends
to make au exhibit   at the Paris Exhibition,     hence   passed    this    by.    I
honestly believe   that   this  exhibition
would be   of   more benefit to  Western
Ontario tban the   Paris   Exposition."
And if  to Western   Ontario, then still
more to British   Columbia, au opinion
expressed    by    Tbe    Miner    sevaral

WASHINGTON    MURDER     OASE.
AUSTRALIAN FEDERATION.
A year ago tbis month an amended
Federation Bill was referred to the
popnlar vote in New South Wales,
Viotoria, South Australia, and Tasmania. It carried in all of them except New South Wales, and in that
colony there was a majority for, but
it did not comply with a provision that
the affirmative vote should nnmber at
least SO, 000; it was a few thousand
short of the requirement. It was supposed that the unexpectedly large
opposition was dne to dissatisfaction
with the manner provided for the settlement of deadlocks between the two
Houses of the Federal Parliament:
there was also some disappointment
over the absonoe of a clause to guarantee that tbe Federal capital shonld be
located within that colony. To remove these causes of complaint there
was a meeting of Oolonial Premiers at
Melbourne last January, when it was
agreed that in the case of deadlocks
there should be a joint vote of the
two Honses, an absolute majority to
govern, and further tbat tbe oapital
should be in New South Wales and
not lees than one hnndied miles from
Sydney.
This was satisfactory to tbe Assembly of tbe Mother Colony, but it was
still necessary that it shonld be submitted to the people. It waB provided,
however, that in this second referendum a simple majority of tbe votes
east wonld suffioe to ratify the measure. Onr dispatches yesterday convey
the intelligence that the Bill has been
endorsed by the popular vote, there
being 101,009 infavoras against 70,-
084 opposed to it, a majority of 21,-
875. New South Wales has been the
chief scumbling block to federation almost from tho beginning, although,
enrionsly enough, it was the Premier
of that oolony who began the movement
and who was tbe most active and influential in Riving it shape and direction.   The vote the other day removes

weeks ago ten boxes of salmon were
stolen from Dawson's wharf on Gray's
harbor, about 17 miles from Aberdeen.
Suspicion was directed to Joseph
Anderson and Daniel Downing, tisher-
men, living in the vicinity. Officers
armed with warrants searched the
huis of Downing, but fo'jnd no traoes
of tbe missing fish.
Andnrson could not be found but
subsequently his dead body was discovered buried in tbe sand. The remains
were buried bnt the coroner became
suspicious and exhumed them. Upon
opening the coffin a ghastly sight was
presented. The head of the body
dropped b^ck disclosing a clean cut
from ear to ear, while the skull had
been orushed with some blunt instrument. Downing has jnst beon arrested and oharged with the murder. An
inquest will be held today.

Break in the  Water Pipe Oonnection
Lsat   Evening' Onuses   Trouble
ou Baker Street.
Last evening about S :1!0 a stream of
water was noticed by some peiles-
trians issuing from tho recently filler!
in druiii leading from the water main
on Bnl;er street to the basement of the
Hudson's Bay Company's building
now being ereoted. The water unshed
out, formed .1 pool and then overflowing ran into the recently exeavnrer]
cellar. As soon as wns possiblo work
men were set tn work to difr down to
the connection of tho branch pipe with
the main. It was then found that
in All ing iu the drain yesterday many
lar?e rnnks hud fallen on tho exposed
pipe evidently partially breaking it
off at the joining or goost'iick and the
water and pressure from above had
comploted tbo fracture. It was found
necossary to turn off the water in the
main pipe. After some time a plumber succeeded in effecting tbe necessary
repairs. Before the water was turned
off it had flooded the basement of the
new building.
A QUESTION OF POLICY.
Tho overwrought citizens of  Nolson
seemed distraught vestwday.   Business
was     deserted,     storekeepers,    whole
Sale and retail, doctors and even   lawyers congregated in tbo  street as if an
earthquake were expected.    The origin
of   this   unusual   excitmnent   in   Ibis
ultra-placid town was tho removal of a
wooden building from oue   side of Baker street to the   other.    A   group  of
toil worn   agents manifested  preac interest in the   operation.    A  discussion
arose and nf course   the meeting was,
ns usual, adjourned to���well to tho usual meeting house.  There it transpired
that the bono of  contention was as  to
what would   happen   if   the   building
was  burnt down in   transit.    The fire
policy was issued to a   building   situated on such and   sneh   a lot.    Clearly
the building   was   no longer   ou   that
lot.    Query,    would   the   policy   hold
good?   Should   not   a   new   policy  be
issued?   A   walking   policy, or a marine policy, or an entirely now policy?
The future     provincial   chief   justice
was consulted hut he shook his head���
and tbe dioe.   Some nne suggested that
the   building   shonld,     in   the   intorests of iho law of insurauce, be   burnt
down for a test case   Another suggested���but   they   were   still   "shaking"
when the Miner man left to   report on
another profound sersation,namely the
hnrsting nf a water  pipo   opposite the
Hundson's Bay   Co.'s,    now building.
Truly, "Man wants but little here below.'   The    question   in   Nelson    is
Whether he -"wants that  little long,"
the answer  depending   Inrgelv on   the
cubic thirst of each individual.

I MINES OF
I        KOOTENAY
�����������
��� ������������4ie��e����������������������������������   YELLOW  FEVER AT SANTIAGO
A gentleman who is largely interested in the Slooan Star and Mollie
Gibson mines ha- bsen in the Slocan
during the last few days.
Speaking to a representative of The
Miner he said that the Slocan Star
wonld firmly refuse to pay more than
98 a day for an eight hour shift.
He had interviewed a nnmber of the
miners in the Slocan and tbe large
majority of them dislike the eight
hour bill. They say they are willing
to work ten or twelve hours if need be
so long as they oan get $3.50 a day at
least.
What they object to is that the
bill will either dock tbeir pay or throw
them out of work They admit that it
is hard on the employers to pay the
same price for less work but they feel
bound to obey the union "bosses."
Things are very quiet in Sandon and
business prospeotB are far   from   rosy.
J. S. Paterson has just returned from
the Similkameen conntry, and brings
an interesting story of the mining development taking place in that famed
district. He says Oopper mountain is
now a veritable hive of industry, hun- j
dreds of prospectors are at work and
locating new properties, and beside
the prospectors, there is a considerable
force of miners engaged in opening j
up properties recently acquired bv
Dr. Deeks of Montral, and others.
The Similkameen Oopper company is
actively pushing work on the Virignia
and Norway. On the Virignia very
little work will be required to open up
an exceedingly valuable mine, Mr.
Paterson, severely scoreB tbe government for its persistent neglect of this
district.
The government office at Grant creek
collects abont $200,000 per year revenue
there. The greater portion of this
amount is derived from Copper mountain, and up to date the government
has spent $800 in constructing a foot
bridge across the Similkameen. No
trails or roads have been built into
the district by the government. Strong
pressure is being brought to be.ironthe
government to construct tbe wagon
road from Princeton to Keemeos.a distance of 45 miles. ThiB would shorten
the freight haul from the C. P. R.
by 40 miles. Tbe road can be easily
and cheaply constrncted, and the government will do well to attend to the
matter at once.
Mr. Paterson tells a story about the
surprising richness of tbe ore on Copper mountain, and predicts a great future for the district.���Rossland Miner.
Victoria, Jnne 31.���The Fontenoy
Gold Mining & Milling Co.,held their
first general meeting of shareholders
yesterday. The Fontenoy Mine, Camp
McKinney, whose stock is held j by a
strong western syndicate is rapidly
acquiring reputation as an early bonanza. The base ledge, rnnmng
through the property north and south,
has been thoronghly exploited. Two
shafts snnk upon it 95 feet and 65 feet
iu depth respectively, proved tbe
ledge to be six feet wide in northern
and seven feet in southern portion.
Assays as high as $120 per ton. in
gold and silver and lead, and none
lower than $40 per ton.
The machinery, now being put in
place, will enable further work to be
done on those shafts and by next
week a drift will be commenced from
northern shaft to cut Cariboo Camp
McKinney ledge at a depth of one
hundred feet. A 80-foot shaft has been
snnk on the Cariboo ledge above here
te drift will strike it and there is
five feet 01 good looking bine quartz in
bottom, over 300 tons of ore have been
taken from the shafts on the base ledge
and is lying on the dnmp.
Rossland, June 21.���It was learned
yesterday evening from a gentleman
who came in from Nelson that A. M.
Hixon. representing a large English
syndicate, has bonded the Terry group
of mining claims, comprising the Alta,
May, Terry, Miners' Delight and Key-
Btoue raining claims for $0,000 cash
nnd $25,000 worth of stock in a company which is to be formed to operate
them. The peonle giving the bond are
F. N. Dodd, Henry Shanks and F. M.
Davidson of Spokane. The Terry
claims adjoin tbe Flying Dutchman
gronp in the Nelson division. The
same gentlemnn stated that Croasdn;le
& Co., have offered to buy the Flying
Dutchman and Venus group of claims,
lying between the H 11 mines and
Toad mouh.ain, and the Fern mine on
Hall creek, for $1)0,000. Of this sum
10 per cent is to ne paid down aud the
balance will! be given in payments
in two, four aud six months. Harry
Lassley, the present superintendent nf
the group, wired the offer to Spokane
yesterday afternoon, as tho property
is stocked in and is principally held
in that city and Seattle. Mr. Hutchinson arrived at Nelson from Spokane
last evening for the purpose of closing
np the deal.
