COOK  TO  LAURIER
Former Member for East Simooe Repeats
His Charge Regarding Price of
Senatorship.
Toronto, Oet. Oet. 17.���H. II. Cook.
ex-M, P. East Simeoe, hns written
another long letter to sir Wilfrid
Unrler reiterating his charges
against the Liberal (lovernment and
again declaring he was asked to pay
810,000 for n Scnatorhsip.
Mr. 1). .1. McDonald, of Kamloops,
returning officer tor the Yale-Cariboo
district.readied Nelson last night and
will Bpend a day or two here in preparation for nomination nnd polling
day.
������I cannot yet state definitely just
when the votes will he polled in thin
district. " said Mr. McDonald to The
Miner. "Tho district is a big one
nml there Is a lot of work to Vie done.
Everything will be rushed just as
quickly as possible, however, and
there will be no delay. One thing I
niu In-lit upon doing is to give every
vntir in the district an opportunity to
east liis vote with us little travel as
possible. If I had heen able to accept
the polling places in the last Provincial election 1 would not be put to us
much trouble as 1 find I have ou my
hands."
Asked if November '.'1 Would not.be
the polling day, Mr. McDonald suid
that as nearly as he could judge now
it would probably he not far from that
date,
Mr. F. .1. Deane, of Kamloops, who
has heen appointed secretary of the
commission named by the Dominion
(lovernment to Inquire into the Chinese situation in this Province has
been Instructed to gather data for the
enlightenment of tin- commission nml
is now making n tour of the Province
for that purpose. Incidentally, too,
Mr. Deane will do a little campaigning, lie is the kind of stock good
campaigners are mnde of   and   having
disposed  of the suspicion that he is
mil lo knife Mr. W. A. (lallilur In-
will probably be aide to do that gentleman considerable good.
his hones that he is up against his
Waterloo, lie and liis crew will never
know what hit them.
During the early stages of the campaign in the United states. Mark
Ilanna. the Republican boss, complained of the apathy on the part of
Republicans and warned them that
unless they crawled out of their shells
they might be compelled to taste the
bitterness of defeat. The same condition that ilanna complained of is
quite apparent in Nelson at the present time, but It is general and not
confined to uny one party. Conservatives ami Liberals are Buffering from
il to n greater extent than the laboring element, to whom a distinct political party is not unlike a new toy to
a child, For this reason the Foley
supporters are more wide awake and
are always hard at work. Hut neither
of Mr. Foley's opponents seem to he
worrying any.
It has liccii practically decided by
the Conservatives of Winnipeg that
im candidate will he nominated
against Mr. rmtcc, the labor member,
says a Winnipeg despatch. The Conservatives are content that the labor
candidate he unopposed as he has given good satisfaction on all sides. It is
stated, however, that Ed. Martin,
brother of Joseph Martin, will run ub
an independent Liberal and a straight
anti-Sifton candidate. The feeling
against Silton is so strong that should
Mr. Martin take the stump on this
ground there is little doubt he would
lie elected. Outside of Winnipeg the
elections seem to he going- altogether
against the Liberals, chiefly on Mr.
Siflon's account, as fully half of his
own party are as much opposed to
him as are the Conservatives. Conservatives are offering bets on him
giving Hire-- to one odds, and can find
no takers. In the other constituencies
the Liberals have nominated fairly
strong men, hut the odium attached
to Sifton is a dead weight to all Government candidates, especially in the
case of McCreary, in Selkirk, and
Thompson, in Marquette, both creatures of Sifton. In Lisgar, Uiehardson
has a clear field, and every prospect
of success lis an anti-Sifton man, and
in Portage, Nat lioyd is putting up
the strongest light of the campaign.
Even Liberals admit that the whole
trend of feeling in Manitoba is strongly against the (lovernment.
Montreal, del. 17. ���The following
nominations took place yesterday:

The llrHt genuine rally of the present campaign to he held in Nelson
will occur this evening in the Foley
committee rooms in the old Hudson's
Uny store. Mr. Christopher Foley
will be present and will deliver his
second big speeoh of the campaign.
The seating aud standing capacity of
the building promises to he   taxed   as
Hie attendance will  undoubtedly be
large.   In addition to  Mr.  Foley, locnl
speakers will deliver addresses,
spoken opponent is ulwnys'entitled to
respect. On tlie contrary, can anyone
tell where The Tribune is'.' In the
past it has supported labor, It is suspected for the purpose of furthering
the plans of John Houston, and when
labor would no longer agree with him
it opposed labor bitterly. Therefore,
The World would much rather tie to
The Miner, an acknowledged opponent, than to The Tribune, a seeming
friend, and possibly a   covert   enemy.

A Winnipeg despatch savs: Mueb
speculation is going on as to the local
elections in Centre and South Winnipeg. Col. McMillan's resignation has
been handed In, and in discussing
the matter of by-elections, a member
of the (lovernment said that it was
unlikely the elections iu Winnipeg
would he brought on before the Dominion'contest, as there was no need
to have too much confusion at once.
Mr. A. .1. Andrews will probably he
the Conservative candidate in Centre,
and Mr. T. VV. Taylor, in South Winnipeg. The Liberal candidates spoken
of arc Mr. .1. D. Cameron in South,
and Mr. Isaac I'itbnhlo for Centre.
In St. Iloiiifaci-.the contest for the Local House is likely lo be between the
two Conservatives, Messrs. .1. B. Lau-
zon and Joseph Brenler, and Mr. C.
II. Royal,who is spoken of as the Liberal candidate, St. Boniface is likely
t,, be brought on before the Dominion
contest, the 22nd and 39th of October
being mentioned as the probable
dates.
Consequent upon the swearing in of
Hun. c. II. Campbell, <<. C, ns Attorney-General, Hie date of tlie election
In Morris has been decided and the
writs have been Issued. The nomination will be mi October 20th, and the

Emperor's Elder Sister Said to Have
Sympathized With Hint.
London, Oct. 17.���According to the
Berlin correspondent of Tbe Daily
News it has leaked out that Dr.
Seheninger, who was Prince Bismarck's confident and physician, test-
illes at the recent trial of Maximilian
Harden, editor of the Znnkun Fc, for
lese majeste, asserting that a certain
member of tho Imperial House expressed to him great satisfaction upon seeing the incriminating article
antl added that it was desirable that
the Emperor should read it. Etiquette
quite apparently forbade the naming
of the Imperial person, so the judge
asked, "Had the person the same parents as the Emperor." To .vhieh Dr.
Seheninger replied: "Y'cs." The
witness declared that Prince Bismarck
had called Harden a good Royalist and
regarded his frank criticisms with
approval from the * Royalist point of
view. It was in company with the
defendant that Prince Bismarck emptied the famous bottle of Steiuihorger
cabin which the Emperor sent to
him. Dr. Seheninger refused to answer the judge's question as to whether the Emperor once said to him that
Prince Bismarck could no longer hold
the reins of Government because he
was a morphine cater. The News
coi respondent hints that the Imperial
Sympathiser with Harden was the Km
peror's eldest sister.

Tien Tsin, China, Sept. LI. ���Beyond
the destruction of the city, the expedition to Tllul, the reults of whieh
have already been cabled by the Associated Press, was profitless. The
military commanders believe, however, that it was morally valuable, as
the force employed was impressive and
the line of march was through a
thickly populated and rich section.and
one in which it is said the Boxers
have ruled with a high hand.
Acting on reliable Information that
the Hoxers were assembling inconsiderable numbers at and near Tllul,
tleneral Dorward some weeks since
began the preparation of an expedition to that point.
Not a shot was fired during the live
days' march and the only casualty
was the killing of one Sikh trooper
during the looting of Tllul
The expedition was composed of
thiee columns, with a total strength
of something over 4.000 men of all
arms. Gen, Dorward personally commanded the column which followed
tho right hank of the canal. This was
composed of the First brigade of Ban-
gal Lancers, oue hundred of tbe
Twenty-fourth Punjabs, 100 men, of
the Beloochistans. 100 of the Madras
infantry; 200 of the Fifteenth l'nited
States Infantry, under command of
Major Robertson and 15 Italian in
fautry. The central column inarched
up the left bank of the canal about
three miles from the right column.
It consisted of two Japanese siege
guns, goo Italian infantry, and 100
Punjab pioneers,a detachment of British Sappers and   miners.
The left column swept across conn-
try about live miles from the center
column, taking iu a number of villages off the canal. This column wus
composed of one battery of Royal
Horse artillery, the Sixth Lancers,
Third Bombay cavalry, the Bengal
Sappers and miners, 350 Japanese infantry, the same number of Italian
infantry, 'J00 Russian infantry, lifty
men of the Wei llai Wei national
Chinese regiment, 100 Sikhs and a detachment of 100 men of the Seventh
Rajputs, The Germans anil French
were not represented.
General Dorward accompanied the
canal Column because of the opportunity afforded by its route to inspect
a large number of villages and talk
with the natives. Leaving Tien Tsin
shortly after daybreak on the morning of the eighth, the columns passed
through village after village and a
country rich beyond description in gardens, vineyards and orchards. At
many of tho villages the general was
met hy deputations of head men with
ott'erings of great baskets of lucious
Chinese grapes, poaches and pears,
while in that of Yangtus Cheng where
the first night's camp was pitched,
the villagers furnished firewood anil
built a bridge of junks over which the
Column passed next morning. Breaking camp at II o'clock the column passed over the junk bridge which had
been Constructed by Ihe villagers
over night and some bad inarching ensued. A heavy rain had Swept over]
ihe country during the preceding
night, rendering the trails very dllli-
cult.
The American troops were the worst
sufferers,being muoh hampered by the
amount of Impedimenta they  carried.
The other troops were in light marching order, while the American infantrymen trudged along with blanket rolls, shelter tents and a day's
cooked rations.
About 10 o'clock on the morning of
the till) tho column debouched Into
the road which follows the canal and
almost at the same instant the head of
the center column appeared tin the opposite bank while couriers ami signal
men reported that the third column
was moving into position. An hour
later the three columns marched into
Tllul unopposed, finding an officer
and eight men of the Bengal Lancers
had entered the city two hours before
and taken possession without tiring a
shot. Tilui was practically iicserted.
It was plainly apparent that the Boxers had bad ample warning of the expedition, aud had succeeded In removing all guns anil munitions
of the town, while the clusters of
small houses on the outskibrts were
burned by the Sikhs. At day break
ou the morning of the I Ith the troops
broke camp and a detail remained he-
bind to finish the destruction of
Tilui. This was accomplished in a
most thorough manner, the smoke
from the burning eity being visible in
Tien Tsin. The Americans did* not
participate in the burning. Major
Robertson kept his men close in quarters antl they were not permitted to
join in the general looting of the
place.
BLEW Til EM TO ATOMS.
Hot Springs, Ark., Oct. 17.���A father, mother, antl four young children
were blown to atoms last night at
Sells, Montgomery County, II miles
fiom Hot Springs. While the family
was at supper their home was wrecked by an explosion of dynamite. The
unfortunate people were Jeff and Maggie Jones, antl their children, ranging

The second day of the fall session
of tbe Supreme Court opened at the
Court House at lo o'clock this morning. The first case proceeded with
was from Rossland, that of Regina vs.
Fred ICettner and Fred Fredeiick. two
German prospectors. The entire morning session was spent in taking the
evidence of one witness, and in hearing the report of the grand jury
which concluded its work this morning. Out of the fourteen cases to conic
before the court thirteen true bills
were found, the exception being in
Regina vs. Carlyle antl Sutherland,
which was a Kaslo case. The jury
asked to ho dismissed, but their request was not granted, on the ground
that they might be needed before the
end of the session as other eases may

with fraud iu a mining ileal iu connection with two claims. Lord llowson and International, in the Burnt
Basin district.    Tbe   first witness ex
amined was John II. Dllbergcr of Taeoma. It appears that Mr. Dilberger
had been enticed to become connected
with tbe purchasing of the property
without seeing it, and on the merits
of the property as told to him by the
prisoner. His evidence brought out
tlie fact that when he visited the property he found that what he had been
told was not true. Witness produced
letters (written in Herman) which
had been written by the prisoners to
each other. These were translated by
Barry E. McDonald, and were alleged
to show that   crooked work had   been
j going on in connection with the deal.

the face, for we shall have vindicated
our party and proved our right to
claim for ourselves the highest earthly
title���honest men. We will then be
able once more to advocate those polit-
cal ideals iu which we have believed, and once more to ask the public
to believe us when we promise to
stand by those ideals. This will involve a reorganisation of the party,
it may he objected. Doubtless, but
if we must choose between reorganisation and the infamy, the degradation, of being justly regarded as a
party of pledge-breakers, willingly led
by a cabal of place-holders who have
proven recreant to every principle
they ever professed. I do not think
honest men will hesitate long before
making their decision.*1

MB.   cooK'S ABEAIGNMENT.
An extract from Mr. II. II. Cook's
address to the Liheials of Canada
ought to be interesting reading to
many members of the party in the Nelson district. They may not he movetl
to repudiate their leaders, as Mr.
Cook is, but the honest ones must admit to themselves that they deserve
to be repudiated :
���The record of our party while it
has been in power under its present
leaders is one long, shameful story of
promises unfulfilled antl pledges broken : of reckless extravagance; of jobbery and corruption; and of utterly
disgraceful betrayal of every principle
for which as a party we have stood.
Kor the purpose of securing themselves
in olliee the men who have been entrusted with positions of leadership
have brought disgrace upon our party
and dishonor upon the name of Liberalism. What, then, is our duty to out-
party, and to our country? Again 1
repeat that only by repudiating these
leadeis, by dissociating ourselves
from them, and by doing all that may
be m our |iower to punish them for
their falseness and treachery, by driving them from power ami from the
offices which they retain as the price
of their treason to principle, can we
as Individuals and as a party avoid
sharing their guilt and participating
in their shame. In no.other way, and
by no means short of this, can we
hope to regain or retain as a party
the respect and confidence of a patriotic and decency-loving public. It
may he baid that this can only be accomplished at the expense of a return
to power of our political opponents, a
party opposed to the political principles In which we believe. I do not
dispute this, nor do I shrink from this
alternative. Neither do I believe
that any true man or any man who
has an abiding faith in the truth of
Liberal principles, or in the ultimate
triumph of truth, will shrink from it.
We are bound to assume that the t'oii-
Beivatlve party is peimeated aud guided by a genuine belief in the truth of
its political ideals and in the correctness of its prtnotples. At any tate, we
cannot truthfully charge that party
or its leaders with having betrayed or
abandoned its principles to get or retain olliee. This mueb wo must say-
in fairness, even if wc cannot see eye
to eye with them. At the most then,
the defeat of the present Government would only mean loss of office to
incn whose holding of it is a disgrace
and a scandal *, it would involve no
defeat of the principles of Liberalism ;
no rejection of those principles by
the men whose votes would bring
about the Government's overthrow.
On the other band, for us to overlook
ami condone the treachery and desertion of principle of which our lenders
have been guilty would not only be a
deliberate decision ou our part to
make ottiselves and our party partakers of their crimes against political
decency, bnt it would mean putting ii
premium upon falsehood, promise-
breaking, and treachery to principle,
and a recognition of these as legit
mate weapons of political warfare: a
prospect from which every decency
loving (anadian must recoil with hor
ror.
lithe Liberal party lie what wi
have believed it to be, a great force
for political good in this Dominion
If its principles be founded, as wc
have believed, upon ethical and economical truth, we need not fear that
it will be permanently weakened
by reselling it fnnn the leadership of
men who have been false to all other
professions, recreant to all their
pledges, aud who recognise in our
party nothing more or better than a
machine to keep them in  olliee.   The]
A  Liberal  leader   in    Quebec,    lion
Mr.    Turgcon,   said    in   a   speech   at
Riviere du Loup the other day:
'Sir ('buries Tupper is an old man.
In the natural course of events he
will soon disappear. Who will be
his successor? lion. (Ico. E. Poster, a
man of narrow views, imbued with
the most hostile sentiments towards
the population of this Province. His
right arm is the famous lletliringlon,
who wished to make the coining election a struggle of English Protestants against the French-Canadians
and Catholics, who appeals to the
worst passions of the people. I appeal to you. my dear compatriots, not
to vote against Sir Wilfrid Laurier
and thus place yourself under the directions of those fanatical hordes
headed by the Clark Wallaces, the McNeills, the Montagues, the Sam
Hughes and the power of an unfriendly press."
If this is not an appeal to racial
and religious prejudices, we should In-
glad if  The   Toronto   (llohe   or some
lthcr self-constituted authority would
tell ns what is. The whole campaign
iu Quebec is based on appeals to these
feelings, yet if a word is saiil outside
against Mr. Tarte the whole Conservative   party are   accused of a wicked
ittempt to array race against race.
"I am a loyal British subject,"
lys Mr. Tarte. "but I am loyal to
my race also." This remark follows
Immediately on a declaration in favor of the Independence of Canada.
What Mr. Tarte means is that as long
as he is obliged lo be a British subject he will be a "loyal" one, although it must be said his loyalty is
of a peculiar quality; but he is hoping for the time when the French
will outgrow the English, and Canada will become independent. English-speaking Canadians are tolerant
enough lo endure such talk, coining
from an ordinary citizen, but it is
different when these sentiments aro
thrust into their faces by a man who
boasts that he is the master of the
Government.
We hope Mr. Foley will not be too
severe on tin- Conservatives ill Ills
speech tonight. At Rossland he said
some hitter and unjust things, accusing tin-in of enmity to the laboring
classes. If he is keeping himself informed on what is going on, he will
know that the Conservatives of the
Conservative city of Winnipeg have
resolved to endorse the candidature of
the Labor nominee. Mr. Puttee, and
that the only opposition so far
threatened is that of a Liberal candi
date. The Conservatives are not and
never were the enemies of working
men.
The    Vancouver Province says it   i
despicable tactics on   the part of Con
servatives   to   accuse   tlie Liberals   of
Canada of disloyalty.    So   it would be
if it were true, but   there   is   no such
accusation,   dlreot  or   implied.   The
Liheials   as a party are quite as loyal
BS the Conservatives, and   as   individuals they are quite as honest,   and respectable, and good  looking.   It would
be entirely   within   the   truth,    however, to accuse   some of   the   Liberals
of being extremely silly, aud   in   evl
denee it would   only   be   necessary  to
can this writer in The Province,

that several times bullets from rifles
in the hands of careless sportsmen on
the C.     P.     I.',     lints   have    found    their
way to the shipyards and feels that If
something   is    not    done   to stop   this
e_reless shooting some one will be
hurt. The bullet which whistled past
Mr. Prosser went within a foot of
him and although it wus almost spent
still had sullicient force to bury Itself
over half an inch in the wood. "Wc
don't mind being under tire if it is a
case of necessity," said the captain,
���but we don't like it when it is simply the result of oarlessness. If anyone is hurt I am afraid it will go
hard with the man responsible for the
injury. Something should be done to
stop it."

NEWS OF THE MINES.
Much interest is being taken by the
local mining men in the proposition
to send u mineral exhibit lo the Pan-
American exposition which is to lie
held ut Buffalo May 1 to Nov. 1. Hull.
Nearly every town and mining district of liritisli Columbia bus been
asked by the secretary of the mineral
department of the exposition to send
a mineral display. Locally the matter has been considered nnd it. has
been found that the undertaking will
incur too  great an  expense foi-a.sin-
glo body or Organization to undertake.
The matter was brought before the
Nelson Board of Trade and all the
members were in favor of the proposition. As they could Hot stand tin- expense, however, it was resolved ti
place the matter before the executive
of the associated boards of trade ol
Eastern Hritish Columbia. Il will be
acted upon al the next meeting of tin
executive uml it is intended to ask
the Provincial Government to giant ;���.
sum of money to be used for the purpose.

Mount linker District.
New Whatcom, Wash., (let. 17.���
News wns received here today that the
Dominion surveyors who huve been
engaged in an effort to locate the International boundary lino where it
passes through the Mount Baker
mining district in'Whatcom county
have abandoned their work und left
the country. According to their Held
notes the line passes two miles South
of where it was always supposed
to run. while their scientific observations place the 40th parallel, which is
the boundary line, within a quarter
of a mile of where it. lias always
supposed to havo been. Should the
Held notes stand, a majority of the
liiiest mining properties in the district will be on the Canadian side.
The matter will undoubtedly have to
be made   the   subject of negotiations
between tin- two governments.
