Tenth Year
Arrangement Between U. S.England and Germany.
EACH HAS GOT A SLICE
An International Controversy of Several
Years' E landing Seems to Be
at Last Settled,
Berlin, Nov. 8.���It wns officially announced tins morning thnt subject to
the United States approval, an agreement has been arrived at between
Great Britain and Germany by virtue
of which the Samoa act is repealed nnd
llie islands of Dpolo, Savall and the
small adjacent islands fall to Germany
ns free property, and the island of
Lutuila and tbe subsidiary islands go
to tbe United States. Great Britain,
it is added, has renounced her claim to
the Sainoan Islands and Germany, iii
turn, renounces her claim to tbeTongo
Islands and of Savage Island in favor of
Great Britain, and also cedes Ohcsli
nnd Ohanisabe, tbe two easterly islands
of the Solomon group and their insular surroundings, to Great Britain.
The Consular representatives of the
two [lowers in Samoa and the Tonga
Islands are to be withdrawn for tbe
present, nnd German subjects arc to
have tbe same rights as British subjects in regard tn tho free and unimpeded enlistment of native-' in the
whole of the Soloinon group in ihe possession of Gront Britain, including
Olioiseul and San Isabel.
much satisfaction. A high diplomatic
official snid tbe agreement was due to
the faot tbat German public sentiment
was adverse to retiring from Samoa,
and yielding to this sentiment, Great
Britain had solved the matter by taking an equivalent in territory elsewhere.
London, Nov. 8.���The British Foreign Offieo tonight gave ont a statement in regard to the Sainoan agreement similar to thnt issued in Berlin,
showing the United States gets Tutu-
li aud other Sainoan Islands east of
tbe 171st degree of longitude.
Berlin, Nov. 8.���Tbe Berliner Tage-
blatt says:
"Samoa was not bought too dearly.
The presence of America in Tutuli
will not involve the eoonomic difficulties for Germany that England's presence there would.''
The National Zeitung says:
"The agreement is a success which is
net impaired by the indemnity accorded for the remuneration for Brit.sb
rights which are as indisputable as
the German."
THE CZAR AT POTSDAM.
Imperial    Party   Entertained   By tbe
Emperor and Empress of Germany.
Potsdam, Nov. 8.-���Tho Ozar and
Czarina arrived here at 11 o'clock this
morning and were welcomed by the
Emperor nnd Empress of Germany at
Wild Park station. The most cordial
greetings were exchanged. Their Majesties then drove to the new palace.
Among those present wore Count Os-
ten-Sackon, the Russian ambassador,
and Prince Von Rindoliii, the German
ambassador at St, Petersburg. A company of the Kaiser Alexander regiment
with band and colors formed the guard
of honor. The luncheon at tbo palace
was attended exclusively by members
of the Imperial family. There will be
a Imnquot this evening nnd those present will include the Imperial pnrty,
the Princess the members of the Rus
sian embassy, Prince Helsentoh, Dr.
Vou Miguel, Count Von Buelow and
General Vou Goesler, tbe Minister of
War.
Their Russian Majesties started for
home from Wild Park station at (i
o'clock this evening.
Washington, Nov. 8.���Whatever plan
Gront Britain and Germany might
ngreeupon it was stipulated that it
should ne first submitted to the ritifi-
cation of tho United States. This was
necessary as the change proposed
should be made only by formal treaty
which would require tbo approval of
lbs Senate, it is believed that Ihe nr-
rnugenient proposed now will be satisfactory to the State Department.
The United States is not concerned
with the amount or the character of
the compensation that passes between
the ether nations.
Besides retaining tho coaling station
of Pago-Pago, acquiring tbe Island of
Tutuli, whereon tbe harbor is located,
ana three or four smaller islands in
the vicinity, tbe United States will
continue to enjoy bj stipulation the
privilege of trading with Apia under
conditions equally as favorable as those
now existing. The islets referred to
are no! of any particular importance
from a oommeroial point of viuw but
it is deemed essential to control them
Politically in order to prevent smuggling,

'ihe negotiations then shifted to London to determine whether Germany or

Last Week's Successes Confirmed by the
Later Reports.
BEATEN BOERS HOWLED FOR MERCY
British Cavalry Cut Them Up Terribly���Her Majesty
Has Confidence in General White���Buller
Taking Secret Precautions-
London, Nov. 8.���Further reports of
the Groblerskloof affair tend to confirm
the statement that the British were
successful. A Kaffir declares that
fully a hundred Boers were killed on
the hill top by the "men-women"
which is supposed to iudicate that tbe
Gordon Highlanders were there. Cyclist scouts have since been across tbe
Tugela bridge. They saw a number of
killed lying on the plain. Apparently
when the Colenso garrison evacuated
that place on Friday,the British troops
missed a grand opportunity of carrying out an effective attack on the
rear of the disconcerted Boers. The
latter appear to believe tbat the Colenso column evacuated the place as a
rue and are lying in ambush to surprise them if they advance, hence the
immunity of the town from occupation
by tbe Burghers.
Estcomt, Sunday, Nov. 6.���Details
in regard to General Brocklehurst's
operations on Friday towards Dew-
drop show that the British force consisted ot the Eighteenth nud Nineteenth Hussars, cavalry with a battery, mounted infantry, the Fifth Dragoons, Boston's Light Hoise and two
batteries. At midday General Brock-
lehurst drove the Boers from all their
positions, shelled three of their guns
into silence and beaded off 1,000 Boers
from the Pietermaritzburg road. The
light horse pressed too far into the
gully, and were extricated by the Dragoons, all getting safely  away.
Under a heavy firo Lieutenant Poni-
eroy of Ihe Fifth Dragoon Guards
pluckily resoned a dismounted trooper
from the lire zone. Tbe British casualties were slight. Tbe moral effect is
excellent.
Capetown, Nov. 5.���Sir Alfred Milner visited the wounded today. They
aro all doing well. Some of the
wounds are of nn extraordinary character. The M.aiser bullet niukes a
clean perforation of bone aud muscle.
Some soldiers shot through both oheek
bones have lost the sense of smell and
taste, but are otherwise quite well.
Most of the wounds nre iu tho hands
and aims. The local volunteers have
again expressed a desire of going to the
front. The Dutch of the Colony maintain neutrality, though, doubtless
many iu Bechuannland have joined
the Boers.
Durban, Natal, Sunday, Nov. fi. ���
General .Sehalkbnrgher, with 1,1100
men has arrived at Vlyheim, on his
way to Swaziland. It is believed he
is going to Zululand. The enrollment
of the New Imperial Infantry is proceeding apace at Durban and Piotor-
maritzburg.
Murray's mounted volunteers have
left Pietermaritzburg for the Mocho
Rivor. News from tbe lower Tugela
reports splendid work on the part of
tho Germans below TJmvoti. Tbo
Mounted Rifles huve no voinnteers
more assiduous than the Germans.
The preparation for the defence of
Pietermaritzburg are in good shape.
All thejstrong positions on the surrounding hills have been fortilied.
Thero hns been a great influx of Colenso refugoes at Pietermaritzburg
where tbo publio buildings and stores
have been Riven over to thom. The
population of Durban has been incroas-
od 2fi,000 by tbe refugees among whom
there is considerable distress.
Lorenzo Mnrqunz,   Nov.   fi. ���(Delayed).���A runner from   Iugunvnma, Zu-
lnlaud, brings news tbat on November
j 1,850 Boers invaded  British territory
and advanced toward the fort at Iii-
guavuma with a wbite flag. When
they were one hundred yards distant
thev fired volleys into the fort wliich,
however, had been evacuated. Tbe
Boers burned all the stores of Lebon-
bo and thoroughly ransacked Pomers
dorp, which they burned to the ground.
Estcourt, Natal, Nov. 5.-2 p. m.���
Brigadier Geueral Wolfe Murray has
received important dispatches from
Ladysmith, by a runner, but their
contents have not been divulged. The
armored train with a detaobtuent of
Dublin Fusileers and a railroad engineering staff has left here for Colenso
to repair the line, yesterday evening.
It was also intended to go through to
Ladysmith if possible, but has returned here.
The commanding officer reports that
he proceeded bejond Colenso and found
the dwellings there untouched. There
has been no looting except in the single case of a store which wsa looted by
Kaffirs. Several persons were nrraigu-
ed before General Murray this morning. It is reported that the Boers are
not within 20 miles of here.
Tbo ballet holes iu the uniforms of
the Durban volunteers show the narrowness of thoir escape from Fort
Wylie which was only effected aftei
the heavy lire of the Dublin Fusileers
had inflicted severe loss on the Boers.
A member of the garrison who wns
hard pressed by the Boers leaped into
tbe river amid a shower of bullets,
and, diving repeatedly, reached tbo fnr
bank unscathed.
London, Nov. 8.���Mr. Charles T.
Ritchie, president of the Board of
Trade, speaking this evening in Leigh-
tcu paid paid a warm tribute to the
ready assistance and loyalty of the Colonies displayed in a time of diffloulty
aud danger, and to "the friendly attitude of the United States which sho.Vh
that the Americans are with us in ibis
struggle."
Ladysmith is crowded with Boer prisoners and wounded, tbe latter presenting borrible^evidence of the swordsmanship of the cavalry! The Gordon
Highlanders suffered severely iu the
lighting.
London, Nov. 5.���To the eyes of military experts, the darkest page of the
war iR uow being written. But even
that is illuminated with bright passages suoh as Geueral White's victorious
sorties, if In can keep the British
flag flying over Ladysinitb until he is
relievod, tho campaign will turn a
fresh page, aud with tbe advance of
Sii Redvers Buller's force, the British
public is promised more cheerful reading.
This feeling of relief is inspired by
recent good tidings, is nevertheless
tinged by a certain amoiMit, of anxiety
lost General White should again make
some fatal miscalculation involving a
repetition of Nicholson's Nek disaster.
Her Majesty does not share this anx
iety, and is apparently sanguine of his
ability to pull through. It is asserted
tbat she has written to Lady White ex
pressing sympathy with her husband
in tbo trials and difficulties he is now
going through, aud assuriug Lady
White of her own undiminished confidence in his generalship. The purport ot this letter has been cabled to
General White by the Marquis of Lansdowne.
The most interesting news today is a
dispatch from Estcomt announcing the
departure of a strong force of mounted
corps and artillery for a destination
nqt given in the advices. Another
message announces the arrivul nt Estcourt aud Pietermaritzburg within tbe
last few days cf reinforcements from
Durbau and that ii.OOO troopB are assembled ready for entering Colenso
when the opportunity arrives.
The latter dispntch throws light on
tbe former, and the force which left
Estcourt Monday last, doubtless re-oc-
cupid Colenso and probably is now advancing cautiously toward  Ladysmith.
Qneanstown, Cape Colony, Nov. 7.���
It is reported that the Boers hnve
blown up the Stormberg Spruit bridge
as a terrific explosion was heard in the
direction of tho bridge.
Estcourt, Natal, Monday, Nov. t).
���Mr. Bernard, proprietor of the railway hotel, at Ladysmith has arrived
hero witb a companion, having eluded
the Boer outposts by riding along
Kaliir pnths. Ho confirms tho report
that when General White requested
thai the women nnd children by permitted to depart, General Joubort replied he wonld only allow them to go
under the lire of his guns. Mr. Bernard views the situation gravely nnd
says that none of the artillery is able
to cope with the Boors' siege guns,
London, Nov. 8.���The Dnily Mail
has the following from Queoiistowii,
Capo Colony dated Sunday night :
"Thn railway staff is withdrawing
from all tho border stations between
this and Do Aar. There is no cause
for alarm, however, with reference to
tbo border towns General Roller hns
taken effective steps to check the Bor-r
advance. Censorship prevnts particularizing but yon may expect good news
soon.''
Durban, Sunday, Nov. fi.���Oiher information confirms tho statement of
native eye-witnesses respecting the
severity of the lighting on both Friday and Saturday at Ladysmith. The
natives asserts that the Boors were BO
out up that they howled for nieroy on
the field,   and   covered   their   bodies.

FIGHT AT NICHOLSEN'S NEK.
Capetown, Sunday,Nov. 5.���The following is a description of tho buttle of
Nicholson's Nek:
"General Joubert was in supreme
command. The Britishers advanced]in
tbe darkness on the Rebnblic's force
on tbe right of the hill, formed by the
Free etrters commanded by General
Couje. The stampode of them threw
the whole force into disorder. Tbe
British batteries were observed in a
long lino on tbe plains in tbe direction
of the Boer's center, along the table
hill, from whioh our artillery opened
ou the English batteries, coming into
position, from Lombard's kop, with a
creusot. Tbe second shell foil in their
midst. It was followed by shot ufter
shot, drawing tho Britisli concealed
batteries. Fromjsix to twelve, the hill
was a veritable inferno of bissing,
whistling fragments of shells. At
first the British failed to reach tho hill
while the Boer fire told heavily.
Eventually tho British reached the
Boers and showered shells on our gunners. The Boers could only occasionally fire their guns. While a wounded
gunner bandaged himself, another
fought, oblivious of the fragments of
shells at bis back. Dr. I Ion Is wus kill
ed while buudaging the wounded. In
the meanwhile the Burghers got. their
howitzers further forwurd and into
play aud tho extreme end of

NO MORE ANXIETY.
With a plentiful supply of provisions
and ammunition, there need be no further apprehension ns to the fate of
General White's command. Tho mi-
mense sigh of relief that has goue up
all over the Empire, ou receipt of intelligence of tbe last engagements
around Ladysmith, testifies to the
painful anxiety over the situation
there, notwithstanding the many expressions of confidence tbat the troops
would be able to hold their own. That
confidence on Ihe part of the better
informed would seem to have been
well placed. The besieged General who
can sally out and inflict such punishment as the Boers received last Thursday and Friday cannot be snid to be
hard pressed. Indeed, he is almost in
a position to become tho aggressor,
although it is uot likely so cautious a
man as General White will be iu a
hurry to take that character. Another
sortie or two, with further severe punishment, will be required before he
will venture on the offensive. Not the
loast cause of satisfaction with the recent engagements will he the faot that
the General is nobly redeeming himself. He was made the subject of
much sharp criticism for the mishap
to the Dublin Fusileers and the Glou-
ccstershires, and ho was manly enough
to take the blame before it was attri-
huted to him ; but it is not clear yet
that the blundering was all his, and in
any case those who have some knowledge of his career felt assured that he
would make opportunities, if at all possible, to wipe out whatever stain there
might be. He did much to this end
last W3ek, and now that it is demonstrated the Boer forces are not as formidable as feared thero is every probability ho will do more before the campaign is much older.
The only possible anxiety now is as
to provisions and ammunition, and
with respect to these the information
is assuring. As fas as known there is
no scacrity of . either. The Boer
strength in Natal was estimated ut 13,-
000 to 25,000; it is doubtful if Genera]
Joubert can have more than 80,000 at
present to engage iu thS investment of
Lndysoiith. General White has nearly,
if ooi (iiiile, half thai number, including the thousand or so bluejackets. His
artillery strength : considerable.
'' here are thirty-fonr 15-poundei Hold
gun , three 12 pounders from the Powerful, two quiok-llrers captui id from
tin i'. ��� i.. and eight seven or niue-
pounder muzzle-loaders belonging to
the Natal militia. It is presumed that
Ladysmith is a defensible position,
otherwise it would not have been occupied. Ou eveu tonus 0110 Britisher
is as good as two Boors; with a good
defensible position to aid them, there
is no fear of General Whito's 10,000
being more than a match for all the
forco General Joubert can bring
against them.
Before many days there will be a diversion in tbe south, and once the Natal division is free to mnve on the
offensive the Boers will begin to discover that th.i situation is growing uncomfortably wurra for them. One of
the best authorities in England puts
the ��utire Boer forces under rather
than over 15,000. Against these in a
short time will be 48,000 Britisli, to
which are to be added 10,000 from Natal, 7,000 from Cape Colony, aud 2,000
Canadians and Australasians. General
Buller will only have to distribute
these according to^hisplan of campaign
to convince the Boers that their game
is up. It may not be well to be too
hopeful on the strength of tho successes of last week, but it is by no
means improbable that those who predicted a short aud decisive oampnign
may be right after all.
It is to be hoped that Mr. Cotton is
giving his best consideration to the
disturbed condition of the mining industry in Southern Britisli Columbia.
Outside of Rossland, production is almost entiiel.^ suspended. The situation is becoming more aud more unsatisfactory. It is dne to the interference of the Legislature, and
the Legislature is expected to take
the earliest opportunity to repair
the injury as far as it can. It cannot
by au Act restore the harmony that
was so wantonly destroyed, but it
can free labor of the restrictions put
upon it by tbe Eight-Hour law and assure capital that it has rights which
are deserving of respect. If it will
do these thing's, we can trust to time
to restore the old harmony. Mr. Cotton is master of the Government, and
the Province is looking to him to take
action in the matter.
Savs The Victoria Times: "Tbe
Montreal Star makes the statement editorially that at the close of the present
term Mr. Bostook will retire fiom
Yale-Cariboo and seek election elsewhere. The Star is fast be :oming n
very unreliable paper. Not only will
Mr. Bostock not retire from Yale-Cariboo, but he will be elected again for
that constituency by a larger majority
than in 1890, no matter who his opon-
ent may be.'' We are afraid it shall
have to be said that Tbe Times too is
fast beooming a very unreliable paper.
Mr. Bostock has less chance with
Vale-Cariboo than the Boers have with
Culler.
With good weather aud good luck
generally, the Sardinian with the Canadian contingent ought to have covered a third of the distance to Cape Town
ny this time. By the 24th she
should reach her destination. Our soldiers will be landed iu plenty of time
to be given an opportunity to smell
Boer gunpowder, aud when they do
Canadians will await with confidence
the intelligence that they hnve undergone the ordeal with distiuguished
credit.

Many Canadians have no doubt been
anxious to hear something of Mr.
Blake. A few years ago he left Canada to help the Irish Nationalists in
the Imperial House ol* Commons to obtain Home Rule. Some of those v'a-
tlonallstfl, including the leaders, have
been expressing much sympathy for the
Boers, and railing at the Government
and the nation generally for going to
war with them There was never any
doubt of Mr. Blake s patriotism and
loyalty while iu Canada, and there
was anxity t.i know whether in this
Transvaal trouble he was siding with
his Irish colleagues or remaining true
to Queen and Empire.    A recent cable

A FIT OR MISFIT
AN  INTERESTING OASE FOE THE
OOUNTY OOUtiT-
A Knotty Question of D rise it. along and
Fasliion Rather Than One of
Law or Equity-
Rttmcr lias it Unit u very interesting
case will !<B lioartl nt the next iitting
���f the Oonnty Court fit Nolson. As
llie story goes n certain dressmaker in
town wns engaged to make a costume
on the Miilor-matle plan, ter onstomer
supplying her with nil thu necessary
mntorlnl renardless of expense. After
tne usual dflays and unfulfilled proin
isosto"have il finished by Sunday,"
the garment was at last turned out in
the finished condition. Tim dress-
maker contends that it was made according to order and was a perfect fit,
whils her patron ns positively declares
that the whole 'hing has been spoiled
ami expresses ber determination to sue
the alleged spoiler to recover the cost
ot the material. Thou there, will be
a cross-case as llio dressmaker snvs she
inns sue for the amount agreed upon
for the making of the oostume. It is
not difficult to forsee thnt there is trouble in store, Xne question at issue, will
be tbe fit or misfit ot the outfit, and
who will undertake to decide the
point? iti s not a legal qnestinn, hut
one of style, finish nnd fit. Possibly
one of the judges will undertake to decide���bur this oan hardly be expected.
If the matter be deferred to a jury, as
oueof the litigants suggests, still .further tumble ma1' be expected. The
complainant iu the first instance, it is
hinted, bus put her case into the
hiiuds of a lawyer who has not us yet
joined the ranks of the Benedicts. The
gontleman in question is at present
engaged, not in looking up legal authorities, but fashion plates and systems
of sclentifio measurements. A Benedict hns been engaged ou the other
side, but if he be the gentleman that
rumor suggests, he is rather too sensitive to display any professional expert
knowledge on matters pertaining to
Indies altire. A number of witnesses
will be prodnoed on both sides, and in
all fairness the sterner sex, who usually attend the court, should give
place to ladies, who no doubt will bo
more interested in tho proceedings.
AT THE OITY LIMITS.
Blocking the Road to the Railway Btation  Causes Trouble.
The road to the Great Northern Railway station, which has beeu so long
considered a public thoroughfare, al
though in reality private property,
was on Monday closed to traffic by the
tramway people, and a great deal of
inconvenience was rims occasioned.
Severn] local merchants bad to send
their goods bnok to rive Mile Point
an I have Ihem brought to town by
water. The closing of the thorough-
(nre in question practically cuts off
communication with the station hou^e
and freight Sheds of Hie (.rent Northern and debars heavy-laden wagons
from getting beyond tho city boundary
limits. Their only alternative is to
drive round by the Hume Addition and

THE BROUGHAM  CONCERT.
To the Editor of The Miner :
Sir���Would you permit mo through
your columns to express my great
thanks to all those who assisted nie
at my concert, and also to those who
were kind enough to attend. The short
time at my disposal rnnkea it mpossi-
ble for me to thank them all personally as I should like tj do. I enn
only say that I am truly grateful to
them all, and that I shall look forward
with far greater pleasure to my return

SALE OF WORK.
A sale of work under the anBpioos of
the Ladies' Aid of the Methodist
Church, was opeued in the old Nelson
Cafe yesterday, and from every point
of view was a decided success. The
tables wore well stockod witb useful
aud fancy articles which wero readily
disposed ot by the host of amateur sa
Indies, who pressed their wares wi
angeiness and ability. Tho refre
meut nonnter was well suupllod w
all the tempting aud palatable things
that could be thought of, including
"cakes like  mother made,"    In

tbe
afternoon dinner was served, the table
being liberally patronized, while the
service wns pronounced excellent.
Good music was also made a feature of
the evening. The balance sheet has
not as yet boon struck, but it will
doubtless show a good sum to credit.
Throughout the day the spacious room
was well-filled with purchasers, who
displayed a liberality worthy of tho
cause.

The Tuuiarac has bean listed on the
Toronto Mining Exchange. This group
Ktusists of five mineral claims, tho October, October Fraction, Racatan and
the Dinner Bucket. The gronp is situated in tbe Nelson mining division of
West Kootenay, about- 1% miles from
Ymir, at an elevation ot 1,800 feet. It
contains 186.15 acres. The vein consists of a friable quartz, carrying about
89 per cent, of a mixture of arsenical
ntispeckel und iron pyrites and is
lunch oxidized. The country forming
the walls of the lode consists of n
schistose felsparhic rock of variable
character becoming highly mineralized
and laminated iu close proximity to
the ore deposit, gradually changing into a very line grained compact rock.
probably a phyllite.    Tho work   is  an
1 noli nod abaft 185 feet long with ctoss-
outs as follows: No. 1, S6.5 level, in
feet long exposing 4 Jol'eot of ore. No.

feet long. Two drifts from tho hottom
have been driven along the vein running :i55 feet northerly and 60 feet
southerly. Tbe mine is well equipped
with all necessary plant and machinery. Assays give uu average of $8.88,
while in the north drift it is_$U.    No.
2 veins average $18.110. The ore in
sight is estimated at 9,500 tons, which
would amount to $84,000.

Speaking of tho recont boom and
subsequent fall iu copper values, the
American Mining Nows says:
"Of late, however, a disastrous
change has come over the copper share
market. Stocks have been tumbling
ill dire confusion, and the great amalgamation itself has not been able to
maintain the dignity it ventured to
assume in the eyes of the investing
world. Tbe general shrinkage in copper values has beeu something enormous, and, if we pay heod to the
quidnuncs of the street, the end is
uot yet. Now, in the real oopper situation thore is nothing to justify this
rapid decline in values���that is, if former prices were based upon actual conditions rather than upon deliberate
manipulation. All traders in the metal
are agreed that this year's production
cannot, have any marked influence on
the price. They uuderstand that the
projected corabiuation of the leading
copper companies failed to realize its
proclaimed object. The output of the
mines does not keep pace^ with the demand, and while consumers may have
fair supplies on hand, the time is ap
proachiug when their orders must be
increased. Consequently it is fair to
assume, as John Stanton does, that all
the facts are favorable to a bull market.
"Taking this for granted, what is
the matter with ooppeis? Conditions
point to a steady market, aud yet cop-
pot stocks are either naturally gravitating or being forced to a lower level.
The Amerijan Mining News learns
from a reliable souroe that the 'combine' which boomed coppers early in
the year is now using its vast machinery to depress them. Our informant
writes: 'The combine intends to reduce the price of copper, if possible,
demoralize copper shares, make it difficult to carry Amalgamated on loans,
and raise shool generally with the mining stock market. While this is going
ou, the combine will load up at its
own prices. Then about January 1st,
Amalgamated and Anaconda will
come forward with dividends 'hat will
send their stocks booming, and the
combine will unload and make  roouty
both ways.' "

GRAND FORKS' SMELTER.
It   Will   Be   Designed   to   Treat   the
Boundary Eow Grade Ore*.
Grand Forks, B. C, Nov. 8.���Grand
Forks has secured a second smelter.
The ileal was closed today with ,Tay P.
Graves, general mnnager of the Ginn
by smelter, and John A. Manley, who
donated a free site of 20 nores to E.
T. Bradford, general manager of the
Southern Smelting Company, of Denver, Colo., and Harry Gage, M. E.
Tho latter will organize a company
with a capital of $500,000 for the treatment of sulphide ores by the loder or
pyritio system. Work on the site
which adjoins tho Granby smelter to
the north of the bank of the Kettle
River, wi.l ho started within two
weeks.
Tho construction of tho plant will
be started immediately ut Denver and
will be delivered here within throo oi

THE QUEEN'S EMPIRE.
(Writton for The MlNEK.)
Our old pal Tommy took his beans, but he's giving them pepper now���
Rcj^'lar hot und strong- me lads, for he's made a bloomin' vow,
To fighl to the death like his father, to be a credit to his sire;
Who,   with   thousands more with their pluck  and  nerve, built  up   the
Queen's Empire.
And it's up to stay���I can tell yer that, for just like the days of old,
We fight for the cause of freedom still,and not for yer bloomin' gold!
And it don't matter where the old Jack flies, the people they all admire
The laws that it gives to the people that lives under the Queen's Empire.
Look   at   brave   White   with  his sterling men, hemmed in by his bitter
foes;
And Tommy, who buckles on his sword,he says with a firm "here goes!"
And faces death with the utmost scorn as he vows that he'll never retire,
For this is a fight that's got to decide the fate of the Queen's Empire.
The buttle is ragin' pretty strong and into the fight he runs,
For it's death or glory now me boys nnd he's goin' to get them guns!
Look at him climbing the mountain side in the teeth of a ragin' fire;
He's down'd with a bullet through his heart���he was one of the Queen's
Empire.
There's comrades coming up behind, they don't care a damn for the din,
Their pals are dead. What matter that? The buttle they're goin' to win!
On! on they climb to the cannon's mouth, and they never seem to tire,
And they collar the guns! and they smash up the Boers for the good of
the Queen's Empire.
Here's good luck to our brave old Tommy und the same to tbe British tars,
Tbey can both take their physic handsome and they aint ashamed of their
scars.
If they get into any more trouble, and help is the thing they require,
There are thousands like me who just  work for a wage, but we're all of
the Queen's Empire.
If old England in the days to come should be called upon to fight,
And wants her sons whereever they are to help her in the right;
She'll find us ready at any time, and once we start to fire,
We'll never give in while there's a man to say  "I'm  one of  the Queen's
Empire! "
Kiplin'has asked us to " pass the hat."   He mustn't repeat it again,
For once is enough for a cause like this where there's thousands to suffer
pain���
The widows of those brave, dead heroes and the children without a   sire.
So let's all give a bit to the widows  and kids  for  they are all   of the
Queen's Empire.

Nelson, Nov. 8, 1899.
his company will be in a position to
treat ores on or before tho 1st of March.
The plaut will have a capacity of 200
tons daily and as ho indicated will
mako a specialty of low grade ores, or
ores that could not be treated at a
profit by any other system.
"The action of Mr. Graves and Mr.
Manley iu donating us a freo Bito and
agreeing to furnish us wilh power at
a nominal figure," said Mr. Bradford,
Io your correspondent, "is exceedingly
generous. I expected to make a deal
with him, but was qnito unprepared
for such favorable terms. I wish it to
be distinctly understood, however,
that our smelter is in reality not a
competitor to a cold blast proposition
like the Granby smelter. Onr purpose is to treat low grade ores ranging
in value from $1 to $10 per ton."
SCRAMBLE FOR   THE SPOILS.
Intrigues in Connection With the
Partitioning of China,
New vork, Nov. 8.���A special *t.o
'the World from Washington says:
There is not lacking conclusive evidence that there exists an understanding between the United States and
Great Britain regardiug tbe share earn
shall havo in tho paiticion of the Chinese empirj.
Japan is expected to side with these
two countries in their demands.
Confirmation of the statement that
the continental nations that are plotting for a slice of China will inquire
into the motives of Great Britain and
the United States, came today in the
shape of an admision by Couut de Oas-
siui, tho Russian ambassador, who
oame to Washington this morning,
Count de Cassiui snid tonight:
"The statements in the newspapers
that I have been charged with a mission
to unite with my mileages and iuvito
the United States to declare her policy
in conneotion with China, either
choosing a sphere of >influence (a port
10 he under her jurisdiction) or declaring for the lopen door' policy, I must
decline to affirm or deny. I havo not
as yet had time to look around ine. I
must ascertain tbo American views and
sentiment before I give out statements
ou such interesting and absorbing
questions, Liter I may huve something to say."
Tbe World correspondent learns tonight thut Count tie Cassini will not
present the views of his Government
to the United Stutes until the arrival
of the other continental ambassadors,
whose Governments aro interested in
the proposed dismemberment of China.
From a high olllciol authority the
World correspondent lias obtained this
outline of the situation :
1. The United Stutes demands that
the open door policy be continued.
2. 'That none of its treaty lights shall
in any manner be disturbed by foieign
powers seizing Chiueso territory.
8. Thut American trade aud commerce shull be grunted the same rights
as tbe country owning u purtictilar
port enjoys.
4. Thnt each power izt'e- territory
shall furnish It  Written   u^ieenient   to
continue in force all treaty rights now
existing between the Chinese empire
und the United States.
5. Great Britain, having always
maintained open ports, will co-operate
with the United States in securing its
demands.
6. These demands, once having been
made, must be enforced.
7. It is believed that all the demands
of the United States will be granted.
8. It is hoped diplomacy will secure
the concessions asked, but in the event
it fails, other and moie_rigorous methods must be used.
9. Because of possible trouble tbe
Asiatic squadron is being strengthened
to its maximum.
10. It is not the purpose of the United States to seize am Chinese port or a
sphere of influence, it being the intention of the Government to protect n\\
United States interests in all ports
ind provinces of China.
PARSON   JEFFRY'S  PRAYER.
0 Lord, I ask it as my right,
Let Jimmy win the scrap tonight!
1 do not often crave a boon,
But I insist this afternoon !
O Lord, if thou would'st do me proud,
Let Jimmy have a monster crowd !
And do not make the way too strait,
For Jimmy gets just half the gate,
That is, of course, if Jimmy win,
To wish him luck, I think no sin,
Remember, Lord, Thy servant's son,
And   let   James   Jeffries   "cinch   the
mon I"
No need, O Lord, to hustle through;
Let people see a round or two,
And leave the ring-side well   content,
They got return for what  they   spent!
But let it never be in doubt
That Jimmy's bound to knock hiin(nut!
O Lord, thy tender vigil keep
While Jimmy puts bis man to sleep!
(J Lord,    thou would'st not  risk  Thy
name
Hy helping ono of Sharkey's fame,
A ribald fellow from the South,
Who's always shooting off his   mouth I
O Lord, if 'tis thy holy will,
Let Jimmy win this Friday's mill !
Oh, let me no bnse hatred glut,
But, Jimmy has an upper cut
That, landing fairly on the jaw,
One couldn't count the stars he saw!
O Lord, allow my darling son
To soak The Sailor such a one!
And in thy grace, O Lord, permit
My son to wag a deadly mitt!
First, let him close the Sailor's eyes,
Then take bis tummy by surprise,
Then let him tup him on tbe beak,
And smite the foe on eitbei cheek!
Ronnd three, O   Lord,   will fiud   him
RifRgy;
Round six the sawdust will   bo soggy ;
And theu, O Lord, be Jimmy's friend,
'Tis hero the combat ought to end,
Lot Jimmy biff his solar plexus
And kuock   tho   bloke   from   there  to
'1'exas'__ ___^ Amen !
POLICE UNIFORMS,
People are asking why the citv police are not provided with uniforms
A wide-awake hat and reefer are
not usually recognized as the in��ii>tii:i
0,' office and the policeman's Image
! worn   uuder  his coat,   does not  serve
to identtfv him when a stranger needs
his services. The other night a couple
of nieu in search of IoiIHiuk paraded
tho streets looking out for a polioeman
to whom thev might state their case,
and actually'asked Olticer Kerr where
the police were to bo found. ihe
Strangers expressed surprise when
told bv Kerr that he was the policeman ' If the City can't afford to buy
a full suit of uniform, at least the police should be supplied with distinctive hats so as to mark their   identity.
WIRES DOWN AGAIN.
The readers of The Miner will have
to excuse an incomplete telegraphio
service in this morning's issue, as the
O. P. R. wires went down last night
between 12 and 1. The monotony of
this frequent occurrence does not relieve its inconvenience, but nothing
can be done. The local officials of the
company did their best to get news by
other routes, and it was not their fault
they failed.
