THE U. S. AND   THIS DUMDUMS.
Washington, July a4.���The United
states will nor be hound bv the reported decision of The Haguo conference to
Prohibit tho uso of the dumdum bullets m warfare. So tar the United

to the use of this bullet bnt the ordinance officers have been ruakiuR experiments to secure an increased " stop-
Ping; effect for the smull calibre ball
used in the Krag-Jorgenseu and these
experiments have prooeeded somewhat
in the lines of the dumdum bullet,
the spocifio reason why VJnpt. Orozier
ami the remainder of tbe American
delegates voted against the proposal to
prohibit the dum dum was because
tneii general instructions forbid them
JO pledge their Government to any
lino of action that would retard the development of inventive genius in war-
faro. Adhosion to the protocols is vol-
ui��tary. Great Britain it is understood, alB0 refused to prohibit the use
or the dum dum bullet.

correspondent of the Times referring
to the Chinese mission reoently sent to
Tokio with valuable presents from the
Dowager Empress, ostensibly with
oommeroial aims, but really empowered to disousB tbat China Japanese alii
nnce, says: "Tbe reoently adopted reform tendencies of the Dowager Empress are atrtibuted rather to the desire
to oonoiliate Japan and to obtain
Japanese support for the Chinese dynasty rather than recognition of the
necessity for reform."

PIPES TO BE Iiffl?
Mr. Merrifield's Letter Was
Considered.
HERE PAUL I1GER
BOARD OF WORKS MEET
The Promoters of the Gas Company Are
Present at the Meeting���Assistant Health Officer.
A meeting of the Committeo of Public Works was called yesterday for the
purposo of considering further the
question bb to how the gas pipes should
belaid. It will be remembered that
Mr. Marrifield in his letter to The
Miner of Sunday detailed tin. various
reasons why it could he inconvenient
for both the Oity and the company to
have pipes laid in the side alleys.
At yesterday's meeting, Mr. Merri-
field Dr. Doolittle and their eugineer,
Mr. Moma, attended and the matter
was thoroughly discussed. The proa
and cons were of too technical a nature for a report, but it was filially decided that some change should bo
made in the present scheme. Tho
committee advised Mr. Merrifield that
the gas oompany should put in writing
a proposal to the offect that when the gas
pipes were laid on Baker Street.between
Falls and Hall streets, the company
should make connections with every
building on that part of the street
within 80 days from the time of commencing to lay the maina. In this
way the necessity for opening the street
every time it became necessary to
make a oonneotiou would be obviated.
It was understood that this plan was
merely a suggestion to be put before
the Oounoil, the Board distinctly not
binding themselves to any promise.
The City Solicitor was then insUuot-
ed to draw up a formal contract between tbe City and the gas company,
which contract would embody the
provisions contained in the franchise
granted to the oompany.
Applications from Messrs. W. E. Mc-
Oandlish and T. Symes for the post of
foreman of the health department were
read. Mr. Symes seoured the appointment.
The question of stnbling for the
horses to be purchased for scavenging
purposes was left to the chairman of
the Board to settle.
A letter from Straohau Bros, plumbers, requesting tbat the water main on
Water street be extended to the City
limits towards Bogustown was read.
Messrs. Staohan, stated that they
had orders from property owners in
Bogustown for the laying of 600 feet of
pipe provided that the City would
continue tho main as requested. The
mater was referred to the City Engineer to report on as to probable cost,
etec.
It was decided to call a special
meeing of the Council today at 2:80 p.
m., in order to consider the report of
the Public Works Committee in the
first place, and also for tho transaction
of other business.
THE ALASKAN   TROUBLE.
Sir Charles Tupper   Suggests   a  Bold
Method of Settlement.
Ottawa, July 22.���In the Commons
today, Sir Charles Tupper in the orders
oi the day made an important proposition designed to bring the United
States to time in connection with the
settlement of Canada's claims on the
frontier and Lynn Canal which was
to empower tbe Government in a proclamation to build a line of railway from
Kitimat Inlet on tho British Columbia coast by way of Teslin Lake to
Dawou and to pass a bill prohibiting
any more United States citizens from
taking up raining  claims in Yukon.
The Prime Minister sympathized with
much that Sir Oharles Tupper bad
said. The latter had greater latitude
for a speech tbau himself. He had
little or no hope now for a compromise and was sony to say negotiaitone
bad not advanced the positiou one
iota from the position of January
last. The alternatives were arbitration
or an appeal to arms.
Canada's wisest course would still
be to show further patience. The
proposition made by Sir Oharles would
be seriously considered. If anything
could show the wisdom of a Yukon railway which tbe Opposition had ruthlessly rejected last yaar it was this
very proposition. The question of excluding American miners from Ynkon
is a serious matter. It as one which
would call for the closest consideration
by Parliament, but he would express
no final opinion at this junoture.
The British Columbia Government
had passed the Alien bill, against
whioh loud complaints wero made and
regarded by many in that Province as
very doubtful legislation.
Tupper's statement was received as
a matter of the greatest consequence
and on the Government side as being
the best justification the Government
could bave for tbe wisdom of its action
in introducing tbe Ynkon Railway
I bill of lail iiulun.
Afraid He Had Lest Volks-
raad's Confinonce.
WAS EASILY WON BACK
Ho Pouted for a Couple of DayB, But It
Did Not Take Long to Persuade
Him to Stay.
Paris, July 24.���DeBoatchea received
hero from Pretoria, South Afrioa Republic say that the ahseuoe of President Kroger from the meeting ot the
Executive Council today gave ourreucy
to a report that ho had resigned owing
to differences between himself and
members of the Volksraad. Piesident
Kruger when seen tonight in regard to
tho matter, oenied these rumors, stating positively that they were without
foundation.
MORE DIRECT.
Pretorin, July 24.���Kruger has been
absent from the Government building
since Friday morning and it was understood that owing to tbe opposition
Bhown by the Executive Council and
the VollcBraad regarding the question
of the Johannesburg dynamite monopoly he had arrived at the conclusion
that he no longer possessed the Volksraad 's confidence and threatened to resign. Today, however, a deputation
(including General Joubert the Vice
President Hereon Schalk and Burger
and the chairman of the Volksraad
waited upon Herr Kruger and induced
him to attend a secret session ot the
Volksraad. Lato this evening, it was
announced that the Volksraad had finally assured the President tnat it had
utmost confidence in him. It is understood, however, tbat a majority of tbe
members of the Volksraad still differ
from the president on the dynamite
monopoly question.
LAW AND ORDER IN THE SPATES
Bainbridge, Ga., July 24.���Decatur
and Early counties are still greatly excited over the recent lynching ot negroes. One negro nas been lynched by
hanging after bis body bad been nut-
tiilateu. Two bad been found dead
and their scalps are reported to be on
exhibition at Safford, while the bodies
of two others were found lying near a
railway road in the disturbed district.
The cause of their death is in doubt.
Crowds are still buntng for five other
negroes who are implicated with Louis
Sammon, one of the men lynched, in
the assault on tbe Ogletree family.
Vioksburg, Mass. July 24.���Siguor
Enrico Oavalli, representative of the
Italian oousulate at iSew Orleans visited Tallulah today to investigate tho
lynching of five Italians there last
Thursday night.
Washington, July 24.���Tbe Italian
Charge d' Affaires Count Vinci, oalled
at the State Department today and had
a talk with Dr. Hill, Assistant Secretary of State, concerning the Louisiana
lynchings. Count Vinoi evidenced satisfaction with what had been already
done by the offioiala here. Thus far
there has boen no suggestion tbat indemnity or other form of reparation
would be expected, the representations
have been confined to securing information on this subject.
NEGOTIATIONS CONCLUDED.
Washington. July 24.���The reciprocity treaty negotiotatious between the
United StateB and France were brought
to a successful dose at the State Department this afternoon when Ambassador Cambon, on behalf of France,
and Commissioner Kasson, on behalf
of the United States, affixed their signatures to the reoiprooity of the Ding-
ley law and the only one affeoting

FORCING   THE HAND

holding one and tbey are enoouraged
by large stores ot perishable goods

of fruit and vegetables including 191,-
000 pounds of watermelons which was
destroyed, unfit for use.
DEADLY EDMONTON TRAIL.
Wrangol, Alaska, July 20, via Seattle, July 24.���Tbe Stiokeen river
steamers Strathcona and Casca bave
arrived here with 57 survivors of tie
Edmonton trail. These unfortunates
had been on the trail nearly two years.
They related tales of hardship and
demonstrated the non-feasibility of
both the land and water routes over
land. Under orders of tbe Canadian
Government the Hudson Bay and other
trading companies bave sent out relief parties to bring in tbe several
hundred siok and starving, still struggling along tho Liiard and Pally riv
ers. During the lust winter, it is
thought that 50 died of scurvy and as
many more were drowned.
.While others returned, a majority of
the survivors are without funds. The
majority are American citizens and
the local authoriies are notifying the
Washington officials of their destituto
coudiition. The following are some
of the returning survivois, S. Mc-
Quiuti, Nnvu Scotia; A. OuflWell, New
Brunswick, ; T. M. Simpson, Yarmouth, N. S. ; H. F. Barthlme, Nova

KLEPTOMANIA OR ?
why tee -mm
High   Official  Enumerates
Various Causes.
SUGGESTS SETTLEMENT
Paris, July 24.���A soiistional case,
which recalls that of Mrs. Castle, of
San Francisco, in London about two
years ago,is agitating Americans here.
A lady who iB described by some cappers as Mrs. A���; an American millionairess, well known in New York
sooiety, but whom the consuluto here
says is a Miss Hobbs, waa caught shop-
lilting in the Louvre. Inspector Al-
bauet the head detective of the Louvre
followed her about the Btore, and noticed that she pioked up something at
every counter she passed. The woman was arrested outside the Louvre
and taken to the police station. A
policeman searched her rooms at the
Hotel Continental where a number of
stolen obljects were found. On paying for the property the woman was
released as it is the custom of the
Louvre not to prosecute kleptomaniaos
when they are foreigners or well
known.
Tbe Louvre that is here spoken of
is not the celebrated national art gallery of Paris (formerly the palace of
the Bourbons) but an enormous building on the opposte side of the street to
tbe gallery, known as the "Grands
magaBins du Louvre." Part of this
building is a hotel, largely patronised
by English visitors, but the rest of it is
composed of what is known out West as
a dry goods store, probably the largest
of its kind in the world. Paris boasts
of two other huge stores similar to,
though not so large as the Lourve,
namely the Printemps and the Bon
Marohe. These latter sell goods of a
cheaper and somewhat inferior quality
to the Louvre.
Naturally theBe large stores with
some two or three thousand oustomers
iu them at one time lose a quantity
of goods by theft. The Louvre employs
over 800 male and female detectives
and yet the loss is considerable.
BOYS   STRIKE.
New York, July 24.���About 200
nieBsenger boys employed by the postal
Telegraph Oompany went out on a
Btrike today. The officeB of tbe company most affected are in the financial
district. The strikers demand tbat
they be paid at the rate of SJiceutB for
each message; tbat returned messages,
which they are unable to deliver, shall
be paid for the same as delivered
messages; that the levying of 50 cents
a week on eaoh boy for clothing shall
cease, and that tbe boys be permitted
to purchase their own clothing. A
number of postal boys who have remained at work have been attacked in
tbe streets and very roughly  handled.
VERY IMPORTANT.
The United States Will Give Canada
Lynn   Canal   Harbor  If It
Will Suit.
Washington, July 24��� In as much
as tbe Canadian officials have laid
stress upon the refusal of the United
Staetes to accept fair arbitration of the
pending question it may be proper to
explain the reason for refusal as pointed out today ly a high official. In the
first place the United States Government contended, absolutely certain of
the soundness of its claims, in tbe matter of boundary, that it would seam to
bo a good reason for submitting tbe
matter to arbitration on the ground
that a good cause had nothing to fear
from fair arbitrators but this Government hold that arbitrator's treatment
is all subject to the fatal weakness of
compromising. In our case any compromise would amount to the loss of
our whole contention, for onoe Canada
controlled the Lynn Canal the United
States would be deprived of the only
weapon it now possesses for protection
of our miners going into the Klondike
from extortion and perhaps expulsion.
It was for this reason that Secretary
Hay relented the Canadian proposal
to arbitrate conteuding, on the contrary, that in any case Pyramid Harbor
should be bestowed upon Canada. Then
too, it was realized that an agreement
to abritrate may be so extremely unpopular in the west that the offioiala
will be made to adjust the matter with
out resort to arbitration it possible.
This has oaused a revival of tbe pro-
ject to ailow Canada free privileges at
some specified ports on the Lynn
Oanal, Dyea, Skagway, or Pyramid
Harbor, perhaps, while allowing sovereignty" over them to remain in tbe
United States and this is one of the
propositions now engaging attention.
It is realized that this plan would
meet strong opposition from tbat element, which favors no concession
whatever to Canada but under such
an arrangement, American miners
might reasonably expect to benefit a
good deal from tbe construction of tbe
proposed railway running from a free
Canadian port on tbe Lynn Oanal
straight through to Dawson, in tha
heart of the Klondike.
Loudon, July 24.���Rear Admiral A.
S. Orowninshield, of the Bureau of
Navigation of the United States Navy
Department and Lieutenant Commander John O Oolwell, naval attache
of the U. S. Embassy, visited the Davenport dookyards today. After an inspection of the dock yards the American offioers visited the Keigham naval
barracks.
A CRICKETING  CABLEGRAM.
The following delightfully vague tfl-
gram was received last night. Who
the spooks are that play against the
Australians it iB impossible to ascertain; thia is the third despatch received with similar edifiyng cricket news
in them:
London, July 24.���At the close of
play for the day the AuBtraliaus had
scored 150 runs for eight wiokets down.
Reference to tbe Field unravels tbe
mystery for it is there stated that on
July 24 the match between Surrey and
tbe Australians begins. At a late
hour the following solution arrived ;
"In the cricket match which was
begun at Kennington Oval today between the Australians and Surrey
County the latter were all out (firBt
innings) for 112 runs."
But what was tbe total score of the
Australians in their first innings?
VICTORIA'S RIFLE TEAM.
Viotoria, July 24���It haB been decided that tbe riflo team for Ottawa to
be sent by the Provincial Association
shall consist of six members, besides
whom it is hoped, assistance from tbe
looal battalions will enable two more
to go, so tbat there will he the team of
eight required to compete in the Lon-
dou Merbants Cup Competition. Copies of the Ottawa programme juBt received show that it is unusually attractive to new men, there being introduced a series of prizes for tyros in
each matoh.a plan followed by the Provincial Association last year and tins.
BEAT AT THEIR OWN GAME.
London, July 24.���In tho international golf tournament at Gautou,
Yorkshire today, Vardon and Ball,
representing England beat Park and
Tait, of Scotland,
ACCORDING   TO     THUNDERER.
London, July 24.���The Times this
morning commenting editorially upon
Saturday's debate in Candian Parliament on the Aiaskan Boundary matters
says: "Sir Charles Tupper expressed
himself with unnecessary energy, but
looking to the present position of tbe
Alaska negotiations we hope we may
disregard his oratorial fireworkB. Sir
Wilfrid Laurier'B tone wbb studiously
concilitory and moderate and as no
concession will be made in Alaska
without Canada's knowledge and conr
sent there is no room at present for tbe
pesBimstio views of politicians at Ottawa or Washington. Judging from
the utterances of Sir Wiltird Lanrier
and Mr. Fairbanks, we see no reason
for either gloom or recrimination on
either side. It will be more dignified
for the great uationa to settle their
differences without reference to third
parties, but it is incredible that the
United States should he unwilling to
consent to arbitration when other
methods had proved ineffectual. Their
attitude at The Hague and in tho Van-
c/.eulan affair makes it impossible for
them to refuse to arbitrate a dispute
involving a question of national honor.
THE AMERICA CUP.
Bristol. R. I., July 24.���The Columbia was hauled out of the water at the
Herrshoff works today for tbe purpose
of having her under body cleared and
her steel mast steeped. The big raoer
arrived here yesterday and tbe work
on ber was began early today.
Rothesay, Island of Butte, July 24.���
The cup challenger Shamrock, whioh
arrived here yesterday hoisted ber canvass today and sailed around tbe bay,
hut did not do any racing. Many of
the local officials were entertained at
luncheon by Sir Thomas Lipton, who
declared that no expense or skill would
lie spared in completing the Shamrock
for the taoe for the America Cap. She
will proceed to Greenock tomorrow to
complete ber fitting out.

Satisfy the Boers that your riflemen

WHILE
IT'S
SUMMER
A BAD SYSTEM.
"Mr. Wells also arranged about
putting the trails in tbe district in
go id shape, and E. Johnson will have
charge of tho Toby Oroek trails. Mr.
Wells also arranged for having a survey
mado of a wagon road to give acoess
to Toby and Horse Thief Creeks.': Mr.
Wells is member for North East Kootenay in the British Columbia Legislature. He has been visiting the Windermere distriot.and his business there
is thus referred to by The Golden Era
The trails and surveys mentioned are
public works of the Proviuoe, undertaken at tho instance of the Government, and to be prosecuted at the pub-
ho expense. Mr. Wells is aoting as
agont of the Government.
The Miner baB nothing to say
against tho charaoter or business
abilities of that gentleman. He
may be a person of tho highest integrity, and may be sufficiently skilled in engineering to superintend the survey and construction
of trails in the Windermere district or
elsewhere. Of these things we say
nothing because we know nothing. It
would be a pleasure to bo assured that
Mr. Wells is eminent as a oivil engineer, and has the highest possible
qualifications as a trail builder. We
would nevertheless object very strongly
to this method of carrying out publio
works. Mr. Wells is at present a member, and will very probably be a candidate at the next eleotiou. Under the
system in vogue he iB given control of
large sums of publio money, with liberty to expend tbem where and how
he sees fit. If a man of integrity he
may spend them honestly; if a man
of ability ho may spend them judiciously. But in any case it is an en
tirely wrong principle, for the expenditure of public money should not be
given to men who are looking for favors from the people. Granting that
Mr. Wells is above suspicion, it is
well known that all members are not;
and even the best of them aie subjected to the temptation to expend the
money in the manner that will bring
them tbo most voteB. There is not
only tho danger but the too great probability that the public interest will be
sacrificed to that of the politician.
It is a pernicious principle. It is
wrong as a matter of publio policy,
for the best interests of the people are
not considered by it; it iB doubly and
trebly wrong in that it affords open
encouragoment to eleotoral corruption,
and to the extent or degree of it lowers the standard of public morality.
There may not bo a new Govornmeut
as tho rosnlt of the difference between
tbo Promier and hiB Attorney-Gouoral
but a new Government will oomo
somo time. The public coiiBoiouce is
proclaimiug to itself with much oai-
nestuosB that it cannot oomo too soon.
It may not he until after a general
election held in the usual course, or it
may be earlier. But come when it will
one of its first cares should bo to put
an oiid to this system of funning out
public money umoug members, That
is not an honoBt way of conducting
public business. It is not honost in
the Government, whose mrrubers are
bound to obtain the best results possible from the expenditure of ovory dollar entrusted to tbem; and their supporters in the Legislature must be
men of strong virtue indeod if they
oan remain honest under the tornptn-
tion of it. The control of these expenditures should he given to men who
are not obliged to oanvass for votos in
order to retain their positions.
In Vancouvor they fine a merchant
for keeping a bicycle rack at his store
front, and allow building contractu.b
to monopolise tho whole sidewulk.
There are no bicycle racks in JNolson,

A correspondent who subscribes himself, "An American Kifloman" writes
The London Empire : "Yonr Government would net wisely in holding tbo
Transvaal sternly to aooonnt mid displaying such force as to show even the
self-conceited Boers that resistnnco
would be folly. They think that their
good shooting sottles all questions of
military superiority, and in this con-
viotiou they will romain intractablo and

Addressing the House a few davs
ago, Ool. Prior advocated the claim of
British Columbia to representation in
the Cabinet. Mr. Fielding in reply
regretted that the question should be
disonssed from tbo narrow standpoint
of Provincialism. If it had not been
for that narrow standpoint we are
afraid Mr. Fielding would not hav��
been called to Ottawa. It was because
he represented Nova Scotia and not
because he was Mr. Fielding that the
Federal Promier invited him into his
Cabinet. The gentleman's regrets are
vory much out of place.
APPRECIATE THE SUPPLEMENT.
The Miner cannot put on record all
the oompliirentary things said of its
Special Numbor. In addition to tbe
numerous newspaper notices, the oflice
is in receipt of many private letters.
A gentleman inljthe Windermere district writes: "It is certainly a grand
advertisement for Kootenay, and a
sample of the push and energy of The
Miner, and reflects oredit on the publishers." The editor of The Mining
Reporter, Denver, Colorado, is kind
enough to say: "We are just in receipt of the Supplement of Tho Miner, and beg to compliment you upon
the handsome appearanoe of some, and
to express our hope that the people of
your seotion will appreciate this effort
on your part to advertise the Kootenay mining fields." Mr. L. R. Darl
ing, Principal of tho New England
Mining Bureau, Providence, Rhode
Island, writes: "We acknowledge receipt of the Supplement to The Minor,
and will say we are quite surprised at
the rapidity of tho growth of your
City, and had no idea of such amount
of business being done there in mining. We havo read over all the important mining details set forth, and
find it very interesting matter."
The oditor of The Canadian Magazine,
Toronto, writes to express his appreciation of the Supplement, which he
thinks is a credit to the town and district. These cordial words como from
tne editor of The Mining and Engineering Review, San Francisco: "I
congratulate yon on the publication
of such a valuable addition to British
Columbia mining literature, and trust
your efforts t.) call attention to yonr
wonderfully rich district will bo appreciated by your readers." The writer adds that, tho issue was received
too late for notice in the July number
of his journal, but that the onimis-
sion will bo remedied next mouth.
And there are others.

llml Victoria Streets-Effect of
Yesterday's Storm,
No soiomu oeremtmial attended   the
mttina "f the ��rBh so'1 for t,le K"H
works yesterday. The reports ot a silver
ruWel and polished wheelbarrow
f, r removal of the tlr��t shovel load of
,���ril, were untrue. In Nelson wheel-
burrows are only required for tho even-
imot Dominion day nnd oilier Hank
holidays nnrl ul eleotions,
Grotl work was made during the
mmm on tbe euttinp in Stanley
gtvoot. H��t tbe storm revolutionised
,1,,, ideas id' the euRiiicer and soon the
future ttrave of r?as pirns became tbe
,������! of a swollen torrent. A strainer

ANGLING REPORTS,
A large army of miRleis sot out on
Sunday for various purls of the river.
Eight nf tbem climbed an Alp and
lishud for flngerliugs in Cottonwood
Luke. Two of that party got 148 and
11 representative of The Winer said he
got 16 aud wanted something said
about his oatoh in "Angling Notes."
He ditl not bring bis fish to this office.
Mr. Aimtiiir Leu was np at Five
Mile Point but only got font fish���two
with fly mid two trolling.
Parties at Ward's Crossing bad but
poor sport, as least so it is bolieved as
they nie reticent as to uumbers.
Messrs. Bullock-Webster and Kelly
were fortunate in securing the use of
a hoal in llie water below Kootenay
Bridge. They got eight or nine nice
sized li-h. Mr. Kred Bosq.net caught
n largo ohatr at the bridge and about
30 small trout.
Ar.j number of these little fellows
could bave been taken by fishing
rinse to the shove ill the rough water.
The largo lish. however, kept a ton
respectful listanee from laud for local
auglers to approach.
Mr. Frank Peters and party are reported to have bad rare sport at the
bridge but Mr. Peters is too modest to
give particulars for publication. He
was accompanied ny a fly tyer, specially engaged for the purpose, and a
journalist in order that the sporting
magazines might not lose a verbatim
report ot what might bave been a record basket of trout.
At Nelson the sport was poor.
Messrs. Onrtis and \rmUt who aro
generally successful anglers only got
about one or two npipco. The sun
was fairly powerful and these anglers
who went out "unprovided" returned
home with thirsts our of all proportion
to the numbers of fish they had taken.
ELECTRIC STORMS.
Yesterday's storm made some of ns
realize uncomfortably the propinquity
of tbo powder magazine. In one
House the electrio bills nnd telephone
kept up a lively concert and one inmate, who has "powder magazines"
"u the brain, expected momentarily to
be 'caught up," or rather, that what
was left of bun after tho cataclusm
would ho caught up.
But a thunder storm in Nelson rarely
amounts to anything serious in tho
way of tlaniago. Not so in Butte,
Montana. Last Saturday about 1 a. m.
that city was visited by the most severe electrical storm within tlie mom-
ory of the oldest inhabitant. Telegraph and telephone operators were
forced to abandon their instruments,
wires were constantly struck aud tho
ire alarm at the central fire station,
rang at every contact. The streets were
Plunged in darkness, street cars stopped
wherever they were, live wires were
out ana altogether it was �� wild scene,
this morning a horse was killed by
stopping on a live wire. The lighting struck a wire at M. J. Oonnell's
;ig store and ran down, melting the
insible cap off an autmatic sprinkler
and in �� low moments the stove was
wring flooded. The watchman disoov
"red it at. once and after much diltl
on try managed to shut off the main
valve. Ovor $5000 worth of stock was
utterly ruined.
NELSON  CEMETERY.
Tis a Joyous morning in leafy June.
The sun iB in the heavens, barely in
bis strength though, and the soft green
Primeval buds on the tree hranobes
\& WOI)arously as the early rays
��n�� the diamond-like dew-drops
wmoh yet cling to them. For once we
aeny ourselves the full measure of
^eop steal forth from the house and
d, ���>"VP   tl'��   hi".   ��n   Vfhioh  we
,? i thrn"Rh avenues of pale green
k ! , hrnVB with ohve brown cat-
J��mI "i "nttn"wond trees with incenBe
E ��� u(1b' nf tnmarncs with their
lfw*.2i?,R garb touting forth.of hem-
n, kt,,tlU WuBMnB ��n their winter
cetw v,' ftml of mammoth pines and
��e��ars Uke to great  giants guarding
the confines to soma enohantod forest.
The emerald carpet is relieved here
aud there by the brilliant coloring of
some gorgeous and, to ub, uukuowu
wiloflower, and the air is thick with
the sensuous aromatic odors of vegetation. Wo coutinue our ascent until w��
reach the pioeo of land which is set
apart by the City for "God's Acre. "
Herein the lap of thoir mother-earth,
the pioneer, the unknown settler, tho
beloved brother or sister of our little
community and the little child,gathered in before life's tempest could mar
that white garland of innocence, sleep
their last sleep.
Aud from that peaceful resting plane
we turn our wondering eyes to the
gorgeous panoramn that naturo spreads
before us; then look down over the
little City whioh for the past two years
has been our home. We cannot resist
a selfish sorrow when we note the
enormous Increase in size during that
time; it wbb quite hi* enough for us
thou. But it would not bo just, even
in thought, to gratify our personal
tastes at the expense of the City's prosperity; and, moreover, from the number of now bunilriings wo can see, wo
judge that the increase is to oontinue
in an alarming ratio, thus shattering
at onoe our aosthotio but impractical
wisheB. We turn from the Oity once
more to tbe vista of blue lako, snow
capped peaks, and many tinted, forest-
coated bills. Memories of other days
are brought vividly before us. Tho
homo in tbo southern English city, the
borne by tbe Gal way Lough, the home
on the bauKP of tlie Aberdeenshire Dee
litis* like mirages in our fancy aud
stand out there clear, in contrast to
the home in Kootenay. Happy days
those were nnd sweet tho memory of
tbem. A sbatlo of sadness falls over
our hearts but we haste to dispel it for
it is but tho vapour of sentiment and
unreality; and we ask each Other, honestly and rationally, whether the past
two years have been any the less happy,
Whether the scone before us is any the
less beautiful, whether tho wooden
walled home on tbe hillside beneath us
is any tbe less loved, than those of
formor days?
Tlijn we turn to "God's Acre" and
build in hand vow that if no sorrow
comes to mar the summer and autumn
of our lives, we will gladly spend that
summer and autumn in tlie homo beneath us; and when it is oui turn to
join the sleepers, wo will wish nothing bettor than to "sleep together side
by side" here, soothed by the sough of
the breeze through the piuo trees.
HIS NAME   WAS LOUDER.
A very amusing incident oocurred at
tho Post Office yosterday. Wm. Louder,
a recent arrival in tho country got in
lino with the reBt of tbo people who
make demands at the general delivery
wicket for their mail and when his
turn came he presented himsolf.
"Name  pleaso"   said   tho   nlerk.
"Louder" responded the applicant.
"What name?" repeated tbe clerk in
a much higher tone.
"Louder", almost shonted the man.
"What is yonr name?" yelled the
clerk.
"Louder, yon bockheud" bellowed
William in Teturn, and then in a lower
tjme, he said,"Its a wonder that they
keep such deaf people m such a place."
"I'm not deaf" replied the clerk,
also in an ordinary tone

MINES OF
KOOTENAY |
���������������������������������������������������������������������������������
When tbo sliuft of tho uiiue is huuU.
on ihe vein or deposit iu the early
Btngea of the development, the error is
of too common oocurri'iK'e to find that
the ore on the sides of tlie ahatt has
heen sloped out, because it was easy of
aocess aud conveniently miued at a
small oost, says tho Mining aud Metal-
logical Journal. This is generally tho
porapoctor's first erroi, as the desiro
for ore is in oxcoss of the means at
band of acquiring it at greater depth,
aud on that account prospect shafts
are seldom suitable for the main working shaft of the mine. When a shaft
outs or tmeses through an ore chuto
on the vein when tho mine has passed
tho rosppect stagt\ the temptation is
presented to extract tho rich oie on the
sides of the shaft. If there are no
mining regulations In the district or no
mining iuspoctor to enforce them, or
ro prohibit such manner of working,
these errors are sure to happen. The
shaft of a mine, whether on or off the
vein, is tho entrance to the workings
and should bo used for that purpose
alone and not for tho object of stoping
oro from its sides, which oneration
riuders it unsafe and more liable to
falls of roof or wall rock, whioh are
liable at any time to block the entrance If it is sunk on a vein a suitable amount of ore, say 10 to 25 feet,
depending on the strength of the
ground, should be left on each side of
the shaft before any stoping of ore is
pennitced. It is also a wise provision
to leave the first GO or more feet in
depth from the surface whioh forms
tho back of the vein as a support to tho
loose surface wall rooks and that constitutes the roof of the mine and protects the workings from summer heat
and winter rain. The neglect of mak
iug this provision has made futu.
workings more expensive and miued
many mines, by admitting surface v.;-
ter aud falls of rock into the mine.
Tho amount of ore left iu the first oO
or more feet on the Dack of tho vein,
and in the ore reserved in the 10 to 20
feet on each side of the shaft, is not
lost, for if the mine in future becomes
exhausted in depth, these ore; reserves
always remain in sight as an asset
which is available and can bo extracted
before tho workings are abandoned,
and it is the wisest plan to leave such
parts to the last operation of the mine
instead of the first stages of development as is too often the case.
*  *   *
According to tbe report of tho Engineering and Mining Journal, be lode
mines of British Columbia have paid
dividends to date to the extent of $2, -
126,4(!5. This does net represent tho actual amount of dividends, but is all
the returns they have received. Take
the Poornian mine for instance, For
eight years or ten years the Davenports, of Hpokano, would get out ore
in winter, and reduce ir in summer.
Kaoh year they would make a profit
of about 120,000. The Poorman is not
on the Engineering and Mining Jour
nal's list. Following are the dividend
payors mentioned by the paper in question : Cariboo McKiuney, which paid
its last dividend in February, 1899,
ofl!., cents per share, 1248,969; the
Fern" which paid its last div'dend
in January, 1898, of h cents per share,
110,000; the Hall Mines which paid
its last dhidend of 25 cents per share
in May, 1898; the Idaho, which paid
its last dividend in Jan-jary, 1899, 6%
cents per share; tho Le Roi, wKch
paid its last dividend of 10 cents per
share in April, 1898. of 125,000. This
does no includo tlie $150,000 which the
holders of shares received aftor iho
property was sold to the British America Corporation for tho oro and matte
that was at the smolter at Northport.
whioh cost $200,000, aud waa built out
of the profits of the Le Roi mine.
This would bring the total dividends
of the Le Roi mine, up to $1,115,000.
The Ramoler Cariboo, which paid its
last dividend of 1 cent per share, on
April, 1899, of $50,000; the Payne Consolidated, which paid its last dividend
of 1 cent per share on March 1899, of
$1,036,000; the War Eagle, which paid
its last diivdend in May, 1899, of lkj
cents per share; the Q.ueen Bess.wLich
has $$12,500.
This list is incomplete, as there are
several Slocan properties which are
known to yield profits to their owners.
They are, however, closo corporations,
and their dividends are nevor published.
��   *   ���
Owing to  want of space  th* report
of the   Directors  of  the   Queen   Bess
Proprietary Co.,   Ltd., had   to>be left
out of Sunday's   issue   of Tho   Miner.
Tbe   report   was   read at the meeting
held in   London  the   18tb   inst.   and
states that a uett profit has been earned of ��9,548 from   which   has   already
teen paid an interim   dividend of  6d.
per share, absorbing   ��2,500 and   leaving   an   available  balance   of ��7,048,
This the directors recommended should
be aopropriatid   as   follows;   In  piiy-
nieut of a   further dividend of (id. per
share. ��2,500; in writing off one-third
of the total  amount   Bpent on development work at the mine,��2,728; in payment to tho directors  of 5 per cent, on
the dividends paid (��5,000). ��250;   in
payment to thn late managing director
under the tcrmB of his agreement with
the company of 1 per cent, on tbe dividends paid, ��50, and carry forward to
next account  ��1,520�����7,048.   The di-
rectors think tbat the result   is  satisfactory  especially   when   the   fact   is
tnken into consideration that until the
past winter no regular shipment of ore
has been   made   as, acting under  the
advice of the engineer   in   nharge, the
onergios of the management  were   till
then largely  directed  to  the opening
up and development of  the  mine.   A
Maroh   ;)1   last   a total of   ovjr a, 500
feet of tunneling  had boon oouipleted,
besides a large amount   of work  done
in   putting in  tbo   necessary upraises
and  and winzes to connect the various leels.    Oe has been stoped in each
of the five levels, and to give some idea
of tbe capaoity of the mine   it may be
montionod that  the oro Bbippod in the
month of  Maroh   1899, was 7l!:i   tons.
The output for  the  period   under   review averaged a gross vnlue of ��14 per
ton, the average oost of  mining, sorting, haulage   eto. wan ��3 6s.   .Id.   pe
ton, and the average cost of  freight
tteatment and duty was   ��6  6s.   94,
making together ��9 His. 5.1., and leaving �� profit per ton of ��4 lis. Recent
returns from tho mino show that con
sideruble reductions have been mnde in
the cost per ton of milling, aud also iu
the freight nnd treatment charges.
Further ecjiiounos are also being
effected in the general administration
or Ihe Company's affairs. The total
amount spent on development to March
81 last amounts to ��8,188, and notwithstanding the lad that this development has ope.ied out large bodies of
ore ready for stoping, the directors have
thought it wise to write off one-third
of the total amount expended against
the proceeds of the oro already mined.
Two of tho directorB-Messrs. John
Visger Miller and Charles Kiugsluy
Milbourno���have resigned their seats
on tho Bourd, and Messrs. Robert
Bruce Archibald and Charles Sinclaim
Drummoud havo been duly appointed
(liorctors of tho company to fill the vacancies so created. Mr. O. K. Mil

THE MAVBRICK CASE.
London, July 24.���In tho House of
Commons today Mr. Michael Davitt,
member for South Mayo, asked the
Government if in view of the faot that
the conduct of Mrs. Maybrick in
priBon has been uncommonly good, tho
Home officers would uot recommend
Royal clemency in her caBe. Sir
Matthew White Ridley, the Ho.ne Secretary, said that he was unable to hold

000 in Greater New York had gone out

had necessarily thrown out tbe bast-
ers, trimmers aud others. Tbe itrike

20 per cent increase in the scalo.
