Third Day of the Strike of
the Anthracite Coal
One  Operator Looks for a
Long and Protracted
Seranton. Pa., Sept. 111.���The strike
of the anthracite coal miners entered
upon the third day with everything
shut down in tliis district. Headquarters here this morning received
word that the Mocanqua Breaker in
tlie far western end of the region had
been closed through the office of District President Nichols, who organized nearly every workman there last
night, This makes the tie-up of tlie
Lackawanu and Wyoming valleys
thorough, for not even a washery
about here is doing business today.
The tie-up of the mines has caused
tlie laying olT of every coal train crew
iu this region, and whatever coal is
being moved is going out in the
freight trains. Only three Delaware
A Hudson trains went north yesterday. Three crews are marked out for
tqjjaj hut one is to be employed ir
dumping ashes for the roadbed. The
Erie Railway is almost at a standstill.
No coal is taken over the Honesdale
branch and today the switching crew
at that point was laid oft'. The Erie
.v. Wyoming Valley, the Deleware A
Hudson, and the Ontario .t Western
Laekawiina systems are not sending
a single coal train today in any direction, the strike being wholly ^sponsible for this condition.

U. S. Assistant Secretary of
Interior Recruited for
A Discharged Patent Office
Employee Makes Strong
Washington, Sept. 10, ��� Last winter,
during the excitement over the Boer
war, a Patent Office employe named
(Justine Thlelkuhl was found to be
engaged in recruiting men for service
in tlie Boer army He. was warned to
stop, and nothing more was heard of
the matter until later, when it was
discovered that Thlelkuhl was still actively at work. He was dismissed
from tlie public service. Thlelkuhl
has now issued a signed statement alleging that the man who was really
raising the filibustering company was
Webster Davis, then Assistant Secretary of the Interior, and that, Thlelkuhl himself was merely a mask for
Davis. It was not until lifter th
icheme had failed that MBj^JPfs uvm

Conditions there for hiuisl
Thlelkuhl asserts thiiTSsii'.' liavis.
having learned that he was a Boer
sympathizer, sent for him and proposed that Thlelkuhl should insert an
advertisement in the Washington pa-
tiers in Thlelkukl'8 name, asking for
"able-bodied men with military experience to go to the Transvaal."
Davis, of course, was Thiclknhl's SU-
peiior officer at that time. Thlelkuhl
W08 instructed by Davis, lie says, to
turn over all the letters received in
answer to the advertisement to Davis.
���I received in all about 80,000 letters,of which Mr. Davis took charge, "
says Thlelkuhl. "Mr. Davis prepared the advertisement, saying that lie
could tix it so the law could not reach
inc. and he also told me I must not let
his name be known in connection
witli the affair under any circumstances, for if it became known that
he was aiding the Hoers in this manner it would injure liiiu witli the administration"
In addition to the 30,000 letters,
Thielkulil says he received so many
personal visits at the department that
his immediate chief became suspicious
and an investigation was called for.
'���Tlie investigation was taken up by
Mr. Davis," says Thielkulil. "who,
of course, decided in my favor." Later on, as his correspondence and visits continued to attract attention, an
investigation was again called for.
Knowing that this time it would come
before Secretary Hitchcock himself,
Assistant Secretary Davis advised
Thielkulil to resign, and promised to
send him to South Africa. Thlelkuhl
obeyed, he says, and continued to receive applications, getting about Hill)
personal applications from restdentsof
the District of Columbia alone, besides letters.
On December :.', 1800, he says, tlie
Assistant Secretary Informed him that
he, Davis, had concluded to go to
South Africa himself, "in it was necessary foi him to sec President Kruger, so as to arrange for the payment
and shipment of men who had applied
to us. Also to secure payment for liis
time and expense, all of which I have
no doubt he succeeded in doing."
Thlelkuhl concludes:
"My understanding with Mr. Davis
was that he was to see that I and all
the men that went to South Africa
were to be well paid, and that we
were to have shares set aside for us ill
tlie Klmborley diamond fields as well
as receiving other compensation and
expenses, but I have never received
any Compensation from Mr. Davis or
any Other person for my services and
expenses ill connection with this matter, which were considerable Mr.
Davis having kepi none of the promises lie made to me. Mr. Davis expected lo receive a large sum of money
from   President   Kruger  for   our ser
vices in the Doer cause and 1 presume
his expectations were realized. I have
wrtten him more than twenty letters
since December 2, 1800, when 1 last
saw him iu Washington, and since his
return to this country, but I have not
seen him nor heard from him iu any
way since.
"I believe that the Hoers are prolonging the war at the present time
on tlie strength of representations and
promises made to President Kruger
by Mr. Davis of tlie sympathy and assistance of the United states if Bryan
should be elected. Davis' actions
since his return to the country justify
me in this latter assertion.
"Prom the facts set forth herein it
will lie seen that while Webster Davis
was Assistant Secretary of the Interior Department of the United States
he was disloyal to his Government
and I want the people of the United
States to know it."

Union Men Not Satisfied With
Either of the Nominations Made.
Nelson  Trades  and   Labor
Council Meets Tomorrow Night.
Those citizens of Nelson who talk
politics are spending theii time now
discussing the probability of the advent into tlie Held of a labor candidate. It is known that the laboring
men of Rossland and the Boundary
and other portions of the Valc-Kootu-
nay-Carlboo district are in favor of
having a candidate of their own, and
tomorrow night it will be known
whether or not the Nelson Union laboring men will follow ill the footsteps of their brother laborers. The
Trades and Labor Council of Nelson
will then meet and will fully discuss
the situation. This council is composed of representatives of every union in the city and while these representatives have not supreme power
their recommendations usually   "go"
With their respective unions. Efforts
will be made of course lo prevent the
Nelson union men from declaring for
a straight labor candidate, but it is
believed that these efforts will be
fruitless. The Tribune, the organ of
the labor uuious, had the following
this morning:
It can be Mated on authority that
the Labor Unions of Nelson will not
lend any assistance to the movement,
that is said to have been started at
Rossland, to bring out a Labor candidate for lliis constituency.
It appears that The Tribune has
been misinformed, for so far as The
Miner could learn this morning there,
is no one who can state on authority
what the unions will do. James
Wilks, the recognized labor leader in
Nelson, is The Miner's authority for
this Statement. Mr. Wilks says that
until tomorrow night. when the
Trades Council meet, nothing definite
will be known as to the future action
of the Nelson union.
It is generally understood among
the union men ill Nelson that a labor
candidate will he chosen no matter
what action the Trades Council of
Nelson takes. If such a candidate is
chosen union men say he will secure
almost the solid support of the laboring men of Nelson, no matter what
some of the hading   union   men   may

there Is the greatest activity consequent on the rebuilding of the town.
Kaslo also is feeling tho effects of the
revival. The many recent strikes in
tlie Lardcau-Iliincan district, and the
activity in development there, are
greatly aiding business in tho town."
That is a better note than the despondency of the past year. The same
cheering news comes in from all directions���restored confidence and active
preparations for the resumption of
business on a larger scale than ever.
It is said   that   the   Indians   of the
Northwest gave to the  late sir  . ohn
A. Maodonald the name of "Old Tomorrow." They are more Complimentary to the son, whom they cull
"The Man Who Keeps His Word." It
is high praise, and no one deserves it
more than Mr. Hugh dolin Maodonald, the man who is resigning the
Premiership of Manitoba to throw in
his fortunes with tlie Federal Opposition. The people of Canada admire n
man who keeps his word. Too many
of our politicians arc so much given
to expediency that they will keep a
public pledge or promt 0 only when it
does not prove inconvenient to their
own or their party's advantage, Mr.
Maodonald was never known to break
his word, lie goes on the principle
that u public man should be honest
with the people; that lie should make
no pledge he does not intend to carry
out, and that when once made it be
regarded as sacred.
Mr. Macdonahl is now making a
tour of the Eastern Provinces in company with the leader of the Opposition, and everywhe a he is hailed as
the man who keeps his word. 'The incident to which he chiefly owes this
distinction occurred in connection
with the question of prohibition in
Manitoba, lie is not himself a prohibitionist, and be has been honest
enough to so declare himself whenever
the occasion made it necessary. Manitoba had twice voted on prohibition.
und both times In favor of it by ovcr-
whelmnlng majorities. There could
he no doubt lis to the desire of the
people in regard to that question. At
n convention of the Conservative party
to formulate a pol'.cy in opposition to
the Groenuny Government this matter
came up, and it was decided to embody iu the pany platform a promise
that if returned to power they would
give prohibition to the extreme limit
of the Provincial ju Isdlctiou, As
leader of the pari.v..Mr. Maodonald expressed the opinion that the people
who had twice voted for it we -c entitled to this measure of respect for
their convictions, lie would say that
much, although not himself a poblbl-
tionist. It was suggested that the
party might adopt it as part of their
platform, hut that in ease of victory
at the polls it need not he strictly adhered to; that.in fact, the party could
trifle with the question as Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and Mr. Green way hud done.
To this Mr. Macdonalil stoutly demurred, vowing that if adopted and
they were successful lie. as leader.
would feel himself iu honor hound to
implement the promise. And implemented it was. as is now well known.
The people gave Mr. Macdonahl a
majority, and Mr. Macdonahl has
given tiie people the prohibition
promised them,
He kept his word. He was doubtful of the wis.loin of such legislation;
but the people demanded it and the
party whose leader he was agreed to
give it. ami rather than break the
promise to which he was thus committed he would retire from public
life. He would not trifle With tlie
people who trusted him. Such is his
record, and it is little wonder he is
being received with honor wherever
he appears.    Canada   would be blessed
in such a leader,  and  the holiest and
sincere of both parties   will hope that
one day he may sit highest   in   power
��t  Ottawa  and   continue to he ae-
cluimeil the man who keeps his word.
The Coast newspapers that are so
gleefully demanding to know wdio
would wish to return to the disastrous
financial conditions of the lust years
of Conservative administration might
infer from a study of the Hgures that
there are many who would he glad to
do so. The total Federal expenditure
for the fiscal year ending .lime, 1896,
was 841,702,383. Sir Wilfrid Lauricr thought this was much larger than
a country like Canada could aitord,
and promised if returned to power to
reduce it by three or four millions.
The expenditure for the year ending
last ,I line was 853,718,810. instead
of a reduction of three or four millions, the Liberals have increased it
by over eleven millions. They lire not
men who Itccp their word.
During the four years they have
been in power the Liberals never
moved a hand to relieve the lend industry of Hritish Columbia. Now
that the elections are coming on, we
shall probably have a promise that if
again returned they will clap a heavier duty on lead products imported
from abroad, and thus give a measure
of protection to the industry that
will insure its prosperity. Hut we
have seen what a Liberal promise is
in their treatment of the Chinese
question. Throughout all Hritish Columbia they are known as men who
do not keep their word.

All but the professional politicians
will hope that there is no truth in
the latest rumor as to the date of the
Federal elect ions. October or early
November is a favorSble time; to
bring on an election in Canada iu
midwinter is a cruelty. Itut perhaps
worse than that would be the injury
to the business interests of the country by prolonging the excitement to
February. The Liberals profess themselves confident of the result; why
not dissolve at once and have the
thine; over?

A Sandon correspondent writes t��� >
The Colonial Ooldflelds Gazette, London! "With tho rapid opening up of

never h bright as it Is today. Condition* throughout the district arc ox*

arc either working, or are to resume
shortly, aud new exploration ami nil

A United States quartermaster in
charge of military works at Galveston
and vicinity, wires his Department at
Washington: "1 fear Galveston is
destroyed beyond its ability to recover." The loss of life and property is
appalling iu its immensity, but the
daily press reports do not indicate
that the disaster to ^the town itself is
irreparable.    It   will   not be like   th
average American community if the
people of (ialveston succumb under
their affliction.

Imve grown so accustomed to the futile debates In the Provincial Parliament that we have gradually und al-
mosl unconsciously acquired the con-

f0|d of capable, practical business
men. The report of tho proceedings of
the Hoard of Trade delegates reminds
im that wc have been misled. In British Columbia It would seem, the in-
competent men arc sent to Parliament, and the practical, business men
slay al home. The former shout
themselves Into notonoty.and the latter arc scarcely heard of. They ex-
,st, nevertheless, and the dlssovery of
their existence should -prove a source
of encouragement to the liritisb investor, who. ivltli callous Indifference,
had almost abandoned the hope of seeing mining matters sensibly dealt
with by a Hritish Colnmbian Government. If the best men stay away from
Parliament, they can make their
voices hoard, and the joint Influential

These local trade organizations
know exactly the requirements of
their districts, and of the mining industry generally,and we should like to
see tlie Government adopt their recommendations cu bloc, since they are
all calculated to Ameliorate existing
conditions, and to give a fresh impetus to the principal industry of the
Province. Wc cannot, review the
whole of tlie resolutions passed, lint
everyone in the old Country is agreed
thattit , resent the official Information published in regard to mining
progress in the Province is meagre
and Insufficient. We therefore cordially support the recommendations
thai quarterly statistics of the mineral output be published by the Government, that the Agent-General's
office In London be placed on a more
satisfactory footing, and that a collection of mineral socciiucns lie sent
lo"lbc Glasgow Exhibition. It is satisfactory to know that the liritisli Columbia tlover eni. on its own Initiative, has declared its intention to appoint a commission to inquire into the
working of the various Acts affecting
the mining industry and water rights,
We fully agree with the President nf
the convention that "Nothing has
done more harm to the Province of
late years than the hasty anil Ill-considered legislation on these subjects,"
and wc hope with him that "a rational and conservative policy of Inquiry
liist. and action afterwards,  instead
of action first and consideration afterwards." is henceforth to lie pursued,
ihe liritisli Columbian mining Industry has arrived at an Interesting
'hige, It is attracting the attention
of Knglish investors more than it has
ever dona before, and a little sympathetic support . from the Provincial
Government would hasten the arrival
of tile better time which everyone
connected with British Columbia mining so much desires, and which the
industry on its merits so richly deserves,

lower in elevation than the famous Le Roi No. 1 and Le Roi No. 2, that are
now shipping 10,000 tons a week. The Workings consist of a shaft and Two

Tunnel on this vein is in over too feet, and No. :> Tunnel on this vein has
reached a depth of 11 2 feel, with three and one-half feet of shipping ore in
sight, and forty feet of the ledge to cross-cut. The ore is identical with the
Le Roi ore, the High-Grade Gold-Copper Ore of the camp. The No. 3 Vein
has been opened in five places for 2,000 feet, which dips to the I. X. L. adjoining, which is now shipping the highest grade ore in British Columbia. Several
buildings arc on the ground, with two blacksmith shops and large boarding
house, etc., with water and timber in abundance.
Our assays have averaged from $5.00 to $800 in Gold. Copper and
Silver; and the shipping facilities are the best. The Great Northern Railway
runs three times through the ground, three smelters close at hand, and reduced
charges of $4.50 per ton for shipping and smelting, and we are now ready to
start shipping ore.
