muniicr. the patients came   into  town
from Gnat River and, there  being  no
revision   made  for    their treatment,
Actum Mayor Tcelzel  went down nnd
interviewed   the  Gold   Commissioner,
Mr. (I. li. Dennis, and   set beforo him
the Government's resronsibility in the

The    mutter  was  folly laid  before
Hon. ,1ns. Martin when here  aud nfter

the present  Gold  Commissioner,   not
to pay tho account.    We would further
point out  that  Drs. LaBau and Form

nnd that P. W. Teetzel & Co., are still
owed nil of llieii drng aoonuut amounting to some $200.
As none of the men who were down

the course he did ou account of the
Gold Commissioner's guarantee of $2

therefore recommend that Mr. Galliber

Sifton said that the Northern Pacific
might build iu that direction and that
if they did there wbb no reaNou why
they should not get a subsidy. It was
not probable that they would do so,
but he did not see why the Government should be tied to the O. P. R. in
tins matter. What the Government
wimted was lo pot a road for the settlers. Sir Wilfrid Laurier Raid that

CZAR   IS   PLEASED.
St. Petersburg, Aug. 4. -The Official Messenger today publishes a Gov-
einmiiit cnmmuuiqne reviewing
lengthily the rfsults ot The Hague eon
ference. After referring to ite sympathetic reception tbe powers accorded the Czar's " magnanimous appeal
for pence" it proceeds:
"And the resnlts of the conference
have fully come up lo tbe expectation
of the   Government.
"It has been found necessary for
the conference to postpone a definite
settlement of the complicated question
of the suspension of armaments nntil
tully elucidated by the different governments Nevertheless the lightening of miliitary burdens is alnariy admitted, by unanimous resolution, to
be urgenty desirable tor all nations.
"On   the  other    hand,   the  labors
of the conference will   doubtless   exercise   nn   influence   in   regulating  tbe
customs of war and stopping cruelties.
"Various states have   agreed to  use
all their   resouroes    in   favor   of  the
maintenance   of   pence   and the abolition of war.   It  is now an established
fact that mediation,   whioh   hitherto
depended   upon the   good   will of  the
B'ntes   interested,   oan   henceforth  he
offered bv a third power on its own initiative. "
The oommuuique concludes:
"Without   impairing  the sovereign
rights of the individual states, tbe results afford a fresh basis   for  international   peace.    Tbe   neoessity  for  the
solution nf the  Czar's  proposal   is admitted  by   al!   the   powers,   aud   tbe
maroh   of events will   indicate the securing of the welfare   of mankind nnd
the full  attainment Df the objects

WILL BE KING DAVID.
London, Ang. 4.���The Daily News
says that if the heir ot the Duke of
York eventually comes to the throne,
he will be called King David. The
News says that upon the authority of
the Princo of Wales the child has always been called Prince David. It is
onstoiuary, although not obligatory, to
petpetnate a princily name in kiug-
hood. The full name of the youthful
Prince is Edward Albert Christiau
George Patrick David.

Rossland, Aug. 4 ���The seoond day's
session of the Board   of Trade of Br t-
ish Columbia met   this morning at.   10
o'clock. The early part of   tho   session
was taken up  in diseussiue   and passing resolutions for proper   Parliamentary representation both in tho  Provincial and Dominion Houses. In the distribution of appropriations fnr opening I
up  the country and iu   domestio  mat-
teis, a large   number   of tbe  subjects
proposed for discussion veio  relegated
to   a   special   committee   which   will

The ihief interest of   the day centered
upon the  silver-lead   resolution before

odmitti d to Canada   free ot duty ; that
Canadian import duties on   white lead
and   bad   used   for   painls    generally
should lie   increased   to   SO  per   cent.
In connection with   the resolution and
the  amendmeut,   Mr. Aldridge  mar'c
a number of important statements concerning the   present  condition of   the
.minting industry in   Canada, pointing
out that   it will be lo the interests  nf
this  Province   to   support   the   home
smelting industry by smelting the oras
at home, nnd thereby   getting the frill
valne out of the product of the   mines.
After a lengthy debate,iu which nearly
all Ihe delegates took part, the following resolution was nnauiouiusly ngieed
upon:   "Resolvrd.   that it is the sense
of this association that the largest possible amount of relief would   be given
to the lead mining   industry   in British Columbia by a reciprocal   arrangement with the United States  whereby
land bullion nnd ore would be admitted
free   of   duty into tbe  market  of  the
United States; aud that we   shall continue to urge upon the Cauadian
missioner   to   the   international
conference the   paramount  importance
of using  every effort   to  securo  snch
an arrangement; that pending tho conclusion of such treaty, or in   tho event
of the final failure of   negotiations for
such a treaty it is tbe sense of this association :
I, That the lead smelted in Canada
and refined abroad shou'd be re-admitted duty free into Canada.
3. That import duties upon manufactured lead coming into Canada
should be increased proportionately
with the duties levied upou other
lines of  manufactured goods.
II. That the annuities already earned
by Canadian smelters from the Government should be adjusted and paid
for forthwith. The following officers

nski was given the decision over Mexi
oan Pete Everett on a foul in the sev
enth round tonight.
It, :b now some months since the rate
payers authorized the expenditure of
5>il(),000 on the water works system
and f]G,00 on the electric light plant.
Everyone, of conrse, takes it foi granted that the money is now being spent,
for no City Council was ever known
that did not, spend all it could get its
bauds on, But ns very little had beeu i
heard of what was going oo The Miner
set out yesterday to net the particulars
in order that th i citizens might see
just how their money was being spent
and what benefits we��e to be derived
from it.
It was first discovered   that the citizens could ftel   assured   that no possible  combination    of   circumstances���
barriug, of course, the explosion of the
powder   magazine���could   bring nbout
such a state of affairs   aB  existed  last
winter when the private   houses  were
cut off and the   Oity   was   completely
without   fire   protection.       Hereafter
there will be nny amount of water and
the pipes   are   being so prepared   that
tbey will not   freeze   up, even in   the
coldest   weather.    The  City has   contracted for a   sufficient quantity of 14-
inch steel pipe to run   np   Cottonwood
creek   to   a   point   slightly above   the
level of tho leservoir and is uow   calling for tenders for the   laying   of   the
pipe.
This work will be commenced next
month and will be ompleted by No-
vermber 1. This pipe will be capable
of supplying a population of 15,000.
so it will be Buffioient ior a few
months yet. anyway, and as Cottonwood contains enough voter to supply
a city of 100,000 population it will not
be necessary to look for 8ny other
source of supply for at least a covple
of years. This pipe will he so laid
that it will not freeze up. It will oon-
nect with the present distributing system nt the corner of Stanley and Latimer streets.
For   tbe present, at   least, it is   uot
intended to abandon   Anderson Creok,
the present source of   supply   and   the
Cottonwood pipe line will   be  used as
a supplemental   source.    However, the
present Homo will  not  be fixed  up in
anyway so as soon as it  becomes worn
out the new pipe line will be   brought
into use.    Iu case of a shortage of water iu Anderson creek it will be  possible at nny time to turn  on   the  water
from Cottcnwi od creek at   the  corner
of Latimer nnd Stanley streets,   where
it will enter the   distributing system.
There is no danger   ot   the water running   out   suddenly   as  the  reservoir
holds three day's BUpply and the short-
ago could not fail to be   discovered   in
any amount   of time   to turn   on  the
water from Cottonwood.    If the reservoir became empty the   surplus  water
from    Cotonwood   would   fill   it   up
again   so    whichever   way   yoo   look I
nt it you cannot discover any means by I
which the Oity runs the risk of having'
no water for  even an hour.    The  coBt
of this   work,   an   on  the   extensions
of the  mains, outlined in  Thursday's
Miner,  A-ill   be   away   below the estimated cost.
THE ELEOTRIO LIGHT.
The first matter taken up in connection with the improvement of the eleotrio light system was the  water power
which has been lamentably   weak during the winter.    As soon as the   present   Council   took hold   of the  City's
affairs, work was  started   on grading
the line of the proposed flume from Ihe
headwutcrs of the Salmon River.    The
material was delivered   b: t   owing   to
the delay in securing   lumber the construction of the flume was not proceeded with until summer.    The dam   nnd
half   the   flume   are   now   completed.
The flumj is 36x20 inches   and   has  a
capacity   of   from   BOO to   700 miner's
inches "of water. It catohes the  nearer
of the two streams which   is also   the
smnller.    There   is   enough   water  in
this cieelc to do for thiB winter so  the
expense  of   tapping   the larger  creek j
will nnt be e'tailed nnti1 it "s needed,
in order to   make  the sma.    creek do
the work, the day flow will be stored in
Cotronwood Lake and a   dam to  make
this possible   will be constructed at  a
cost of not more than |250.    The flume
does not, run to  Ooltonwood Lake  but
towithiul1^   miles of it,   where  the
water shed is.    From   the lake to   the
flume the water runs through a natural
ohnntiel.    At the power  bouse  a  gate
will be cut through   the bottom ot the
dam to allow the deposit of mud which
gathers   Horn   Giveont  Creek   to   run
ont when   tbe  gave   is   opened.    This
improvement will double   the  storing
oapaoity of the  dam     Ths machinery
will   be   sufficient to   run 5,000 lights
but the water it is proposed to use will
not he Bulfkiont for  such   a   number.
However,    there    will   not     be  5,000
lightB i'l use and the   water   available
will be quite sufficient to run   all   the
lights   that will be iu  use.    The pipe
leading from the dam  to  the penstock ,

absence of nn heir excites the superstitions feelings, nnd he connects himself
| with   a  Russian  legend, according to
which   an   heirliss   Czar is to be succeeded by a Czar  Michael, predestined
to  ooupy  Constantinople.    The  death
of the Ozarwitch and the failure of the
conference   at  Tbe Hague led him   to
decide to abdicate  on the  occasion   of
his visit to Darmsdat.    On this becoming known in  Paris M.  Colcasse   was
sent post-haste  to   dissuade him from
oarrying out his intention.''

! the new franohise proposals of the
i Transvaal Government   will  have  on
the position of ihe Uitlanders.
Johanuesburg, Aug. 4.���It is reported Mat iho dynamite commission will
not recommend the cancellation of the
monopoly ior the reason that foreigu
shareholders nre interested in it. It is
helieved (hat the outcome will be the
importation of dynamite under certain new restrictions, the price of
dynamite being reduced to ? shillings.

the former's piaoeful views inspire

expreBBed a belief that the Transvaal
difficulty would be overcome in a few
months and without a shot being
fired, owing to the mutual moderation
displayed. He predicted tbat capital
would then flow freely.
London, Aug. 4.���The stories published in New York of the Secretary of
the State for the Colonies, Mr. Chamberlain, renewing his wnrrings with
President Kruger and the British Cabinet's approval of such action, are evidently baseless as Mr. Chamberlain'a
proposal for a joint enquiry aB to the
effect which the new franchise proposal of the Transvaal Government
will have on the position of the Uitlanders was only presented to the
Transvaal Government Wednesday and
the latter is still considering its acceptance.
London, Aug. 4.���The Berlin correspondent of tbe Daily Mail says: "I
learn that the real reason why Emperor William did not go to Cowes,
was the critical state of the Tansvaal
question. The letter delivered yesterday (Tbnrsday) to tbe Queen at Os-

MISREPRESENTATION.
We do not profess that absolute confidence in our knowledge of the precise
object of the Mine Owners' Association
that other papers in the neighborhood
do; but we venture to think lhat one of
them, published up in the Slocan district, is wrong in saying thnt it ib "to
reduce wages so as to increase profits. "
Nothing has appeared to warrant
this statement, either directly at the
instance of thn As-oeiation or indirectly as an inference from anything
the Association has done \
There is no secret or mystery aB to
the circumstances. The mining industry wns being prosecuted energetically,
and with the plea^antest relations between mine owners and minerB. The
latter were working ten hours a day,
and receiving the very liberal remuneration of three dollars and fifty cents,
as large a wage as prevails anywhere
in the world. To all appearance tl ey
were content, and operations were
progressing cheerfully. Some demagogues procured the introduction of an
amendment iu tbe Legislature, for
b tiding these men to work longer than
eight hours a lay. This amendment
became law aud is uow in fovea The
situation of things was greatly altered
by it. Production was reduced by
twenty per cent. That was a matter
of very serious concern to tbe owners;
but when an effort wns mnde to per
sii&de the men tnat they should demand
the same wage for eight liours that
they had been content to accept for ten,
it was felt that the concern threatened
to become an injustice. Many of the
men were persuaded by leaders who
livo by agitation to stand out for the
old wage. The mine owners simply
refuse to be coerced into paying it.
The result has been a disagreement
between the owners generally and tbe
miners gonerally, of whioh the only
notable consequence is thnt mining
operations have been sensibly affect,
ed by it.
That is a plain, simple, truthful
statement of the circumstances.
There is nothing in it to warrant thfi
declaration that the owners are ondea-
voriug to reduce wageB. The most or
worst that can be said iB that they are
resisting the efforts of others to very
largely increase wages. So far from
striving to force wages down, they
have signified their perfect willing-
uess to give three dollars for eight
hours' work, which isnn actual increase
ot the old rate of throe dollars and fifty
cents for ten hours. All of us are too
easily persuaded to believe what we
wish to beliove. It may be that many
of the miners have beoome convinced,
by persistent misrepresentations, that
the owners are really endeavoring to
reduoe wages. If thoy will oonsirter
the matter with faiinefs, resolve
uot to allow thomselves to be doceived
by designing men who, for purposes
of their own, are playing on their prejudices and jealousies, they will see
nnd admit that tho object of the owners iB not as stated. If any of them
have been further induced to swallow
the dishonest doctrine that the wnge
should be all that production can
afford they are truly to be pitied, for
a more immoral or mischievous doo-
*rine it wonld be hard to imagine.
Commenting cn Mr. Bostock's speech
on tho Redistribution Hill, The Van
oouvor World expresses its surprise that
he should hnve credited Rossland nnd
Nelsou with a population of 6,000 each.
We nrn a little curious to know what,
there is in the estimate to cuuse surprise in our contemporary. Is it surprised that Mr. BoBtock >-hould have
put the population so high? Oris it
of the opinion that it is too low?
Or is it surprised that Rossland and
Nelson have ny population at all?
For its information, nnd to prevent
Bnrprisefl in the future, wo may say
that Rossland will certainly claim
more than 6,000, while as to Nelson wo
can spenk more particularly and positively nud claim 0,000 at the least.
There is no surprise iu this to any one
who knows how Nelflou has grown the
last year or two.
the position of presiding i fti t-r in Hi
Commons A correspondent of n Const
paper, indeed, is so nice in his explanation that he says Mr. Brodtur's election might have been misunderstood.
On thecoulrary, it would have been
understood perfectly, am. if Mr. 't'atlii
had uot been absent ihe country would
probably hnve been given tbe opportunity to enjoy its understanding of it
The Onloiii.'il Ooldflelds Gazette,
Loudon, England, says: "The Kelson
Miner hns issued it large illustrated
supplement devoted to the mineral resources of tho locality. The letter-piess,
which is aliiiirnbly written, deic ibc-
the va-ious mining camps and mines
in that important and promising cis
trict. The pictures are very numerous and capitally reproduced, and give
an excellent idea of the scenery of
the Slocan country. We congratulate
our contemporary upon such u meritorious production."
It was thought nt first that Mr. liro-
dour, Deputy Speaker, would have
been elected to the ripeakerdiip ou the
death of Sir James 1J. Edgar, The
prize, however, went to Mr. Ba n,
member for North Weutworth. au Ontario constituency. The iiplauution
is made that as the Speaker of the Senate is a French-Canadian it wns
scuicely to be expected that another
of that nationality should also be given
THE END IN SIGHT.
Viitrin Goloni.-i: It is geueially
understood that the Attorney-General-
ship was ( ffered yesterday to Mr. H.
Dulles Belinoken nnd declined. It is
also said that Mr. Cotton, whu made
the offcrjoonpled it with au intimation
that the Government would niter its
policy in certain respects if Mr. Hul-
moketl would comu in and bring ocer
willi him two or three members of the
Opposition. The end of the crisis
must now be very near. Mr. Semlin
must realize how powerless he is to save
himself, aud Mr. Cotton -must be
convinced that further intriguing is
hopeless. The country is tired of the
whole outfit.

on the Eight-Hour Law.
Mr. O. F. Smith, president of the

ied by Mr. F. J. Hurt, also a pron i
nent member of the Board, and the
ilaigest fruit dealer in Canada, arrived
in Nelsou from tlie Bomioarv country
last evening and proceed early this
morning for Banff where they will
spend a week before returning East.
Mr. Smith is largely interested ill
mines in the Boundary district, being
connected with some of the big companies operating there. He has been
looking over some of his properitesanri
reports that the outlook for the country
was very bright. He expressed great
surprise at tbe size aud appearance of
Nelson and said that the people "down
e at" had but a small idea of tho
"yneeuCitvof the Kootenays." He
was sure that, from its position Nelson
was bound to be the City of the Interior.
During tho conversation the Eight-
Hour law came up aud Mr Siniih said
that he had noticed that it had dono
a great deal of harm to the country.
In faot he did not see how we were going to g��t along at all with such legislation. He made the suggestion, not

was brought to bear aud the case put
in its true light he had no doubt bat

ORDER OE TIE DAY
Four Exceptionally Valuable
Claims Unearthed.
A TWELVE-FOOT LEDGE
Hennessey Brothers Fave Discovered  Re
markabW Rich Ore on Mi;l?e Oreek���
A   Railway  Strike,
There were several stories of rich
strikes current on the streets yesterday
and if they all tuin ont to lie as report
ed theie are certainly some lucky prospectors in the countrv. The first that
.iome to the ears of a Miner man wns
trom the Lardo. The men at work on
the I.iudo-Uiincun Railway, near How-
ser Lake, were blasting some rock the
other day end oue of the shots revealed a narrow ledge of reninrkably rich
ore, which inns 'ibout (1,000 to the
ton. An assay to discover its t-xa<'t
valne will ho marie today. As soon as
tbo men discovered their strike there
was a stampede to stake claims The
direction of the vein was ascertained
aud it was staked for six mil s Just
how mucn ore there is, or whether the
lead has heen discovered iu any other
place is not yet known in the 'Jity.
However, the men at work ou tho railway nre greatly excited over tho strike
and think they have several rich
mines.
Another strike that will likely turn
ont much more important than the one
mentioned above was made by the
Hennessey Bros., the original locaters
of the Noble Five. Their strike was
made at Midge Oreek,otherwise known
as 16 Mile cieok, which is in u distriot that has been thought to contain
no mineral resources of any aococnt.
It is a wet ore proposition nnd u
t'.velvo foot ledge of exceptionally rich
ore has been unearthed. The Miner
was shown a sample of the ore yesterday and it certainly is oue of tho finest
pieces of gnleim thnt anyone would
wish to see. If it tnrus out that the
story has not been exaggerated aud
tbat there are really twelve feet of
snob ore it would stagger one to estimate the value of the property. There
lire 11 feet of a poorer grade galena,
which, however, appears to be rich
iiiuugh to pay for treatment which
makes 90 feet of mineral matter. Bob
Hennessey has visited the property
with a Spokane party which may take
it over on a working bond. It is re-,
ported in town that the Hennesseys
wonld not take less tfian $100,000 for
the property as it stands uow. They
aie experienced men and their friends
here have no doubt that the property is
as rich as they claim it. Local men
aie anxious to get iu on it aud nre
ready to make a very big oiler for a
working boud if tho Spokane end falls
through. An assay of the ore has
beeu made iu the City but The Miner
was not informed what tho assay showed as the owners are not talking too
much about their property until everything is settled up. Work, huwever,
will be started as soon as possible.
Tbe owners ot the Agricoln, on Toad
Mountain, one mile east of the Flying
i '^Intehman, and 1', miles west of the
Silver King, claim to have struck it
very rich. The Miner was shown a
sample ol the ore which was a very
pretty spenmen The owners state
that an assay showed a value of $111
in gold,.1-1 ounces silver aud from Til to
78 per cent, copper. There are eight
inches of very rich ore in a ledge from
two to three feet wide. If the half of
this is true there is a wonderul prop
erty for someone to
out of.
Another   piece   of
fairly bubbling over
pure gold was seen
near the  City bnt
of tbe wholo story now might interfere
with a deal for its development, it will
have to bolri over. If a man had one
ton of ore as rich as the specimens
shown ho could retire for lifo or run a
newspaper for about a year.

PREJUDICE
Is the cause nf many a batch  of bread  having to be thrown
int i the tewer, and a woman's time and labor ((one with it.
If you weren't so prejudiced, yon could have just as good
succe.e with your bread as your neighbor.
We advise: throw prejudice aside', and for your next baking
tiy a sack of
3  STAR   FLOUR.
Thousands are using it   with   success:   why   not   you?   If it
doesn't mil you, you don't have to pay for it.
