SAW A SEA SERPENT
Twelve Year Old Boy Sees a Lake Monster
at Crawford Bay���A Truthful Tale ?
Nelson's future as a summer rosort
in assured. Kootenay Lake contains! a
sea serpent. It has been seen by a
uoy 13 years of   age, so   that   no   one
can say that over Indulgence in liquor
has anything tu do with it. It is not
as big as s"!"1' "f tne BeR 88rPeDt8
which have heen seen at eastern summer resorts, hut it is big enough tn
be classed in the sea serpent class and
that is sufficient.
It was first seen at Crawford Hay a
few days ago, and the news was
brought tn Nelson by W. .1. Kane,
master nf the steamer Marlon, it is
described as being about VI feet long,
ami having two legs under the front
portion of its body, so that it is perfectly at home on land. A few days
ago a twelve year-old boy at Crawford
liny saw it crawl out of the water to
a heap of refuse near the shore and
Indulge in a very, heaity meal, return
Ing afterward to the water and soon
disappearing, The boy notified some
men in the neighborhood and they
visited the spot where the serpent had
appeared on shoro and could plainly
see the marks of the web feet. Then
it was recalled that the kitchen refuse   which   had   been deposited near
the shore I'm- sonic time was continually disappearing, evidently having
been Visited several times licfiirn by
the mysterious lake monster. The
Sawyer brothers whn run tlie pack
train ai Crawford Hay. and others
planned tu capture the serpent, dead
ur alive, ami watches have been kept
by men with rifles in the hope of getting 11 shot at it, but these have been
fruitless.
Captain Kane tuld the story to Severn friends in Nelson yesterday, lit'
has seen the marks of the serpent anil
is tberefore sure that it exists. The
buy Vvliu saw il is a truthful young
man and is believed. If it had been
seen only by a man there would undoubtedly have been Inquiries at lirst
as to the kind of liquor the man in
question" uually drank, ur as to the
kind of ������dupe" to which he was addicted. But the boy does not drink
and is not therefore subject to visits
from sea serpents, snakes and the
like,     lie sees only that which exists.
Ttio story was given tu The Miner
iii good faith and in equally frood
faith it is given to Tlie Miner's readers. The Miner has no affidavits on
iile as to its truth and does not care
to say whether it believes it or not.
DETAILS
!
English' people t'nemsoivos to pause,
and the Liberal party especially
should endeavor tu bring about some
healthy   reaction   in this   respect   in
public opinion, Unfortunately, tho
Liberal party, while almost as unscrupulous as Its opponents, lacks really the great ability and grit of
those arch bandits, Chamberlain and
Rhodes, The rule uf the Liberal party has been mean and paltry beyond
description, sir William Harconrt
anil sir Henry Oampbell-Bannerman
made themselves virtually accomplices
before and after the fact, uf the must
disgraceful episode uf Knglish modern
history. The oerB, in my opinion,
are as strung today as they were just
before the fall uf Johannesburg; they
know they have nothing to expect.
Their families have been treated by
the English authorities with all the
rigor of that abominable reconcentra-
iln system, copied frum Wcyler, which
roused the American people. I believe
when Kruger cunies tu this country,
at a period when the real facts of this
war will have had time to transpire,
he will be received here with enthusiasm which never greeted the most
distinguished representative uf any
state who ever visited America."

Detective Smiley Tells More
of the Chicago Insurance Swindle.
LYNCH
Commander of Irish Brigade
in South Africa Busy
Talking
Chicago,   Oct. 1(1.���Detective  Frank
II. Smiley's  confession of   details, as
lie claims to know them, of the insurance fraud   conspiracy  thut    caused
the death of Marie A.  Defcnbucli. was
made public yesterday at   the   county
jail, where   he   is  confined   with   I'.
Wayland lirown   and   Dr.   August M.
1'nger, the other alleged conspirators.
In   his   confession   Smiley says   that
Inge r  and   Brown   had   arranged lu
gain the insurance and that they were
to  divide   it.    Unger   was   tn receive
3 .Kin, while Hrown was  to  take 87, -
nun.    Smiley asserts   that he was only
a tool in the plot and   that all he was
to receive was SI.IMIO fiom    Brown for
allowing himself   to   be known lis the
intended husband of   Miss Defenbacb.
Information   has   reached  the   prosecuting official that a young lady stenographer  who   had    worked   in    the
olllces of a firm of   insurance   solicil-
ors, and who  had familiarized herself
with their   methods,   was  intimately
acquainted with one of  the three men
now  under  arrest   in the   Defenbacb
case.    Some time ago   this mysterious
young woman, who is thought to have
carried considerable   insurance on her
life, left suddenly for California seeking health and   24   hours  later   word
came   to   Chicago   that   she had died
suddenly on the train.  But before she
died, as   it developed   later, the eloBe
friend   who   is   now involved   in   the
lief en bach case remarked   to  another
young woman   acquaintance that she
had  gone   into a "decline" and   that
he feared she could not live long.    As
events proved he  was a good prophet.
The   three   prisoners.    Dr.    A.    M.
Unger, Francis Wayland   Brown, and
Frank   II.   Smiley,   remained   in   the
county   jail all   of   yesterday, anticipating an   effort either to   secure bail
for them or to   procure   their 'release
hy means of habeas corpus.   The prosecution swore out two additional warrants for the trio, one warrant charging them with conspiracy to get J5000
fraudently  from   the Canadian Order
of Foresters, and   the other   with the
same aet  in connection with   the   insuring of Miss Defenbacb for 88,000 in
the  Knights  and   Ladies   of   Honor.
The warrants will not   bo   served unless Brown or either of   the   other ac-
eral Brooke commanding the 'department of   the east of New York which
was made public at the war department yesterday that a pressing necessity exists for the renrgani/ation of
the army mi modern lines.
"For   many   years   past," he says.
the general officers uf the army
have shown the necessity for an increase which will place the army on
an efficient basis and enable it to perform its duties with credit to itself
and to the satisfaction uf   tlie nation,
J'hc events since the commencement
if the Spanish war have demonstrated beyond doubt the necessity fur a
re-organization.    The reorganization
which will enable this nation In maintain the position in which it now
liniis itself placed, so that in ease of
war the army may form the bulwarks
behind whloh the volunteer army may
be created as has always been dune in
our country by organizing tlie pen-
I'le." '

DULLER COMING HOME.
London, Oct, lo.���A despatch from
Pletermaritzburg, Natal, says it is
officially announced that General Bul-
ler will arrive there mi October i.uh.
It is assumed front this that be is
coming borne.
Lndon, Oct. 10.���Douglas Story, tho
clone, personal friend of I'resident
Kruger, President Steyn,General .Jou-
bert and other Transvaal leaders, who
did excellent Herviec in the early part
of tlie war as correspondent of Tlie
Daily Mail, with .the Moor forces,has a
remarkable story, over his own signature, in The Mail. It bears the caption "Boei Hold for America; a True
History of the Sordid Intrigue." The
article charged Webster Davis with
having led the Boers to believe he
could, hy his oratory, so arouse the
people of the United States thut intervention would result. Davis is alleged to have been paid 9125,000. The
story goes on to say: "The South
African war was born in a Hollander
Lntrigue, was maintained by a variety
of continental Intrigues, and will he
burled In American   intrigue."
The history of these intrigues is a
sordid and commonplace narrative of
a few men gambling with human
llvefl and nations, to secure for themselves paltry money profit. <>nc of the
most undid, and its details, the most
common place nf these conspiracies is
that whereby Hoer statesmen hoped
to secure the election of Bryan to the
United States presidency and un purchase his active Interference on behalf
of   the   Transvaal   in a settlement of
negotiations with Great Britain, The
theory upon which the Jtoern founded
their faith was that in United States
there was a large hitter antl-English
public, composed of Hermans und
Irishmen. All of these were by assumption pro*Boor. If Davis, with
his tine oratorical gifts and happy
ignorance of South Africa, could
arouse them hy false enthusiasm, Bryan's election would he a eeitainty,
and in his intervention in behalf of
the Hoers an assured corollary. "And
so today, Huch Hoers as are still fighting, remain   in   the field to await the
announcement  of  the result of  the
polls on November Oth next. Kruger
lias lost faith iu Davis, and is over
the holder.    The   Hoers, however, did
not rest content with these heavy disbursements. They dispatched Montague White, recently consul of the
South African Republic to London,
with Home 6300,000 ($1,000,000) to expend on pro-Hoer meetings in the
I'nited States. That money has been
widely circulated in America."
A most important and interesting
discovery has just been made which
will he a great interest to the mining
communities of Nelson ami Hritish
Columbia generally. The Venus Gold
Mining Co. has just received leports
of exhaustive tests of their ore made
for the purpose of determining the
best method of treatment.
One of the supposed objectionable
features of the ore for treatment by
vanners wns the quantity of yellow
sand thought to contain carhonates of
lead.of a specific gravity heavier than
the black sand whieh carries the gold
values, making it difficult to separate
the two. The quantitative analysis
made by the expert shows that the
yelow sands are probably the most
valuable part of the ore, as they eon-
tain crystals of uranium,one of the
rare metals, the market price of
which is ?<i.OO per pound. The following is the analysis as received: Silica, 08. is per cent. ; iron und alumina, 30.801 per cent. ; uranium, 0.81
per cent. ; lime, a trace; magnesia, a
trace; sulphur, 0.,ri:j per cent. Totul,
Uit.HSI per cent.
The oillcers of the company are nat-
I urally very pleased over the discovery
as it greatly increases the value nf
their property which has always been
considered one of the hest in the Nelson dlstrlot. The world's supply of
uranium is very limited coining chiefly from Germany and a few places in
the I'nited States, This is, it is understood, the first discovery nf tin-
rare metal in Hritish Columbia and
another source of wealth may be added to the already long list.

to recovei Insurance on the life of his
wife, whom he killed on Deoember

city by Prof. Swlthin C, Shortlldge,
who is now residing al Rennet!
Square in Chester Cqunty. The suit,
whieh is to recover the sum of 17,032
from tho Provident Life and Trust
Co., is one of the most remarkable iii
the history of life insurance. Prof.
Shortlldge was conducting an academy for young men. in November,
lsu3, Prof. Shortlldge married as a
second wife.iMiss Marie Dixon Roods,
and everybody pronounced it a happy
marriage. Shortly after this the professor began to act strangely. Six
weeks after the marriage Prof. Shortlldge commanded his wife to go out
with him for a walk    iu the snow.    A
abort distance from the house he drew
a revolver and shot her through the
heart, lie then made an attempt to
commit suicide but wus disarmed by
a neighbor. In the trial which followed, Prof. Shortlldge was acquitted
on the grounds of insanity and was
confined in an asylum until a year
ago.
A life insurance man today recalled
a case of   parallel   nature   which   i

A saloon keeper in that city insured
the life of his wife for |S,000 and
then in a rage killed her. He was
put on trial for his life and after a
tierce legal battle was acquitted on a
technicality.    After   his acquittal   he

TRAITORS
W. A Galllher's Friends Say
There are Many In Liberal Camp.
According   to   Home  ot the   Nelson
friends of Mr. YV. A. Galliher, Liberal
nominee in the Yalc-Kootenay-t'ari-
boo district, there are traitors in the
Liberal camp, First there uuh tho

her ami Christopher Foley, the tabor
nominee. That fell through because
Mr.Galllher, it is said, refused to pull
out after having heen duly nominated
by a Liberal convention. Hy the acceptance of the nomination Mr. Qalliher considered himself pledged to carry the Liberal banner to the polls.and
has declared that he intends to do bo
unless the men   who   nominated   him
ask him to withdraw.
The   hand of   the traitor was atfain
shown   last     night,    Mr.   Galllher'a

Wilks was there on time and accompanied   Mr.   Deane tu tlie Hume Hotel
where  both gentlemen were  closeted
in    Mr.  Deano's    room for some time.
Now Mr. Galllher'fl friends are saying
that Mr. Deane came to Nelson with
some kind of a proposition to throw-
to Christopher Foley a large share of
the Liberal vote in the Kamloops district. There in said to he much dissatisfaction up there with Mr. Galllher ami tin' Liberals, it is said, are

IS IT ALL FROTH?
Fifteen yearn ago the Imperial Federation League urged the British Hov-
eminent to denounce the llelgian and
German treaties, In order that the
Empire might he free to establish
trade relations between the various
parts composing it that would be
most advantageous tn themselves.
The British Government steadily refused to take the step required! they
could see nothing in it for (Ireat
Britain. In 1HU7 Sir Wilfrid Laurier
startled the country with the announcement that Canada was giving
the Mother Country a tariff preference, without conditions. A few
months later the regulation went into
effect. It was quickly discovered,
however, that the "preference" extended to countries having favored-
nation treaties with (ireat Britain.
The latter saw that this was more
than Canada intended or could stand,
and that unless the German and Belgian treaties were denounced she
would lose the advantage of the Canadian preference. What she refused to
do in the Interest of Imperial trade
she would gladly do for herself, and
accordingly those treaties were denounced.
Naturally Germany took umbrage,
venting her anger on Canada. It was
the meddling of Canada that brought
about the abrogation of a treaty that
was of great service to German trade,
therefore Canada must be punished.
There would be discrimination
against Canadian products. A new
treaty with (Ireat Britain was not negotiated at once, the trade relations of
those two countries having continued
since under the terms of a modus
vivendi. But it is understood that a
new treaty is being negotiated now,
and that Germany is putting in black
and white her threat to discriminate
against Canada. Moved by this belief, several Influential English journals are protesting that (Ireat Britain
should not permit Canada to suffer because of her practical affection for the
Mother Country. The Financial News
Is afraid that it will endanger Imperialism. The B. C. Review, a London
publication,saysi "'There must be no
deviation if the Imperial idea is to
grow, und if such a treaty is seriously
regarded ty our Government we look
to the new Parliament to denounce
the proceeding in toto. Canada has
made a voluntary sacrilice to encourage trade relations with the Mother
Contry. Is the reward for her patriotic policy to be exelusii n of her exports from benefits which are enjoyed
by England'.' Such a rebuff would
prevent New Zealand or the new
Australian Commonwealth from following Canada's example ; it would,
by destroying all hopes of an Imperial
/.ollvercin. prove that the talk of
Empire is as so much froth when there
is a possibility nf Ibis country losing
anything. What have our Colonies to
gain if the tie of mutual advantage is
to lie broken whenever we think we
can conclude a satisfactory arrangement with a foreign country whose
entire thought and enterprise is concentrated in securing trade at our expense'.' Of what use is it Unit colonics
sacrifice blood anil treasure in defence
of the Empire if in times of peace the
relations of every day life, where sentiment is not supposed to exist, are
subordinated lo gain���for the benefit
of England alone?"
To the pleas for preferential trade
within the Empire it is replied that
Great Britain would not consent; that
she would never agree to tax foreign
foodstuffs for the benefit of tho Colonies. That is as much as to say that
"the talk of Empire is as so much
froth when there is a possibility of
Great Britain losing anything." Is
all the sacrifice to be on the side of
the Colonies'.' Are the Hritish people
Insensible to sentiment'.' Are all their
thoughts of pounds, shillings, and
pence, and would they sacrilice the
Colonies to the greed of their own
traders'.' That may be the view of It
of the politicians who for the present
have the direction of public affairs;
but there is II growing feeling among
the masses that the Colonies have to
be considered, and that in all matters
Ot   Imperial pulley the day Is at baud
when their voices must be listonod to.
Lot thu Colonies demand Imperial
preferential trade, and there are sentiment and self -sacrilice enough in the
British nation to concede it. If Imperialism is not all froth, something
more than the insular selfishness of
Westminster must go to the shaping
of it.
Liberal candidates are leaning heavily on the lust surplus, hoping that
it will gain them many votes. But all
electors are not laboring under the
disadvantage of  short memories,   in
the years since Confederation there
have just been three surpluses similur
to the present one, surpluses, that is,
over all expenditure, capital as well
as ordinary. There was such a surplus in 1871, and again in 1HH:.', on
both occasions under Conservative administration. Against the one Liberal
surplus over capital as well us current
exeuditure, therefore, the country can
put two Conservative ones. Would it
be too much to ask the Liberal candidates to point out this fact when expending their eloquence on the llnan
cial achievements of the present Government?
A number of Amerlclau women belonging to various domestic economy
societies have been holding a convention in Toronto. During a discussion
ono of them interjected: "So many
know how to make potato salads who
don't kow how to boil the potatoes."
There are housekeepers by the hundred who would benefit the human
race if they took that remark to bed
with them every night for a month,
and turned it over and over in their
minds until they understood it in all
its phases.	
Mr. Garden's candidature in Bur-
rard is causing great distress of mind
to the Libera] newspapers. Wc do not
suppose the gentleman ever had the
least idea that his friends the enemy
were in such agonies of solicitude for
his health and happiness. They think
it would be ever so much nicer if he
were to withdraw and take to his bed
until after the election. Aud uo
doubt it would���for them.
Referring to the rumor that the
local bosseB are endeavoring to pull
both Mr. Ualliher and Mr. Foley and
nominate a new and joint candidate,
it may be well to recall the old aphorism, it is dangerous to swap horses
while crossing the stream. Perhaps,
however, it is intended to pull but
one only. Nothing would pleuse Mr.
MaeNeill more than a single-handed
conteBt.
The Vancouver World says Mr.
Ilewdney has consented to stand as
the Conservative candidate for the
New Westminster constituency. This
completes the list of Conservative
nominations in British Columbia, and
with such excellent candidates the
party can appeal with confidence to
the electors.

Electrification    by     Ice.���In    the
euur.se nf some recent experiments on
liuuid air, II. Kbert and 11. A. Iloff-
niim noticed that a body suspended
above the surface of the liquid acquired a strong negative charge of
electricity. It was subsequently determined that this charge was not due
to the liquid air itself, but to the trio-
llon of minute particles of very cold
iee suspended in it. The discoverers
succeeded in constructing an electrifying machine by means of a tube
containing a piece of wire guaze,
through which the vapor of liquid air
was driven, lee acquires a positive
charge by friction with a metal and
imparts to the metal a negative one.
It appears to be more active in this
respect the colder and drier it is.
This may account for the strong electric effect of polar snowstorms Even
in temperate latitudes, ascending currents nf air soon reach elevations at
Which their water freezes, and the
friction of the ice crystals against suspended dust particle's wojld account
for part of the atomspherie electririea-
tion. It is iUbo suggested by the authors that in the niCMt northerly regions a friction between atmospheric
i��� and cosmic dust, together with
Solar ionization and tho consequent
Conductivity ���f the atmosphere, may
account for thu aurora and other curious light phenomena.

NEWS OF
THE MINES
Alderman \V. K. Hoddor ot Kaslo,
was in Nrlsim yesterday on business,
In Bpeaklng in a general way of the
mining conditions of that section Mr.
Rodder said: "The mining industry
in our .section was never better than
it is lit the present tune. It seems to
have taken upon itself a boom, and
the general conditions of Kaslo seem
to ho greatly improved by it. Rich
strikes from the various properties
around there are being reported nearly every day. The hest of this Is
that they are real and they are not
exaggerated like they were in former
years. This is especially true from the
reports that are received from the
properties situated ou the south fork
of Kaslo Creek. Exceedingly rich
strik"s are being reported from that
district every day. Although peculiar,
a good report comes from the Hiamark
claim. Oue car of ore was shipped
from this property to the sampler at
Kaslo and the returns were so large
that it payed the expense of mining,
transportation, reduction and declared
a dividend for the owners. This
breaks all records connected with any
mine in Hritish Columbia. Another
car is ready to be shipped from the
same property and even better results
are expected.
"The company controlling the Cork
mine is making extensive improvements. They have erected a large two
story bunk house at a considerable
cost. The building is to be heated by
hot air, which is something new in
connection with mining camps. The
company is also laying lino feet of
pipe to bring water from the creek to
the property, to be used in running
the machinery. The men are now
working in tlie lower tunnel and expect to tap the lead in a few days.
In the upper tunnel they have encountered a large body of ore, and it is so
large and so rich that they term their
property the second St. Eugene. The
Government road has been extended to
this property and will aid greatly in
making it a famous mine.
"Hood reports are being received
from the Lardeau district. The Rossland Company which is operating the
Lavina-Hutte property in that district
has let a contract for the packing of
ore from the mine to water transportation. They will ship ore all winter."
Mr. Hodder also stated there were a
large number of capitalists visiting
that section this season.
�� �� ���
.lames M. Anderson, of Kaslo, manager of the Cold Hills Exploration
Company with headquarters at Toronto, was in Nelson yesterday. In the
course of an interview concerning the
properties now being operated by the
company Mr. Anderson said:
"The company has In the Lnrdo-
Donean district nino groups consisting of about 80 claims. We are at
work now on the Chicora group on little Olaoler creek near the Duncan
Kiver. The tunnel on the lead runs
DUO feet. The ore is high grade and
shows up well. We will continue de-
velopmcnet on this property until
about the '20th of this month. The
assays of the ore average about 8SII in
gold, silver and lead values. This
group is situated three and a half
miles from point of navigation. Shipping from this group will probably
start next spring.
"The next work wo did was on the
Gertrude group on Gertrude Creek.
Here we sunk a shaft a distance of BO
feet. The first '.'."i feet showed is Inches of galena, which gave J70 in gold
and silver values. Then the galena
ore disappeared and went into gold
ore which was free milling and gave
values as high as Sir,. About 1,000
feet below this group Is the Copper
Queen group through whieh two iron
cap leads run,traceable lor four miles.
The lirst ledge lss;, feet wide and averaged SI'J in gold,being free milling.
The next ledge below is T.r, feet wide,
giving returns of 110.00 in gold.
These two groups are situated on the
lime dyke divide that separates Trout
Lake district from the Duncan Kiver.
This lime dyke ridge runs .10 miles
through the country. Valuable properties are located on it at Hall Creek,
Cariboo and west fork, the greater
portion of them showing gold values.
"It is my opinion that when greater
depth is reached that all the galena
properties of this district will change
into gold properties. At least this is
what   I have already discovered,
"We also uid work on the .Sutherland group which consists of four
claims. The group Is situated on the
west side of Luke creek, joining the
copperQueon, On this very little work
has been done, n few crosscuts being
run. The nevl we developed was the
Pudding Howl group about three
miles to Ihe south of the Copper
Queen.     We   ran   a   tunnel      into   an

group on Tea Creek, we did some
crOSSOUttlng which uncovered several
ledges of solid ore winch assayed
about 8H0 per ton. The working of the
properties in that section was grea ly
aided by the running of the steamer
Argeuta from Kaslo to Hall Creek
Landing, a distance of 11(1 miles. This
steamer was taken oil' about a month
ago and now much of the work has
been discontinued but will be resinned early in the spring."

The following from the Spokane
Chronicle may be of interest to some
Nelson people: It was a sad looking
party of 20 people that was turned
away from the Spokane FallB& Northern train last night, hut at the same
time it was a much wiser ciowd.
The trouble was that they had purchased tickets from some scalper,
with the intention of going home at
half fare, or even less. The Great
Northern and Spokane Falls ,t Northern people have been watching developments of late, and came to the conclusion that they were being beaten
out of a good many big round dollars
during the exposition. The trouble is
that people will buy round trip tickets from some out-of-town place at a
greatly reduced rate on account of the
exposition, all roads having made
special inducements. On arriivng in
Spokane many want to remain and
accordingly dispose of their tickets to
scalpers, coming out alomst even. It
is claimed that in doing this people
will arrange to be Identified by the
depot ticket agent and atlix their signatures to their tickets, after which
the pasteboards will be turned over to
the scalper, who before night sells
them, the people buying not thinking
they will have to be identified on the
train as well as at the depot office,
and this was what brought the 20 people to grief last night.
