Eleventh Year
Only a Few of Them Contemplated by
Those On the Inside-Weekly
London Letter.
London, Oct. 0.���As a Conservative
majority dally becomes more and more
assured, speculation as to the personnel of the next Cabinet grows rife and
all sorts of guesses are published.
None of these, however, seems Inspired. All take it for granted that
sweeping changes will be made. This
conclusion, however, the Associated
l'reas Is unjustified. The fuet is that
Lord Salisbury, always uncommunicative, has not broken the habit of his
life for the benefit of close friends or
even fellow Cabinet members, but
from a peer high in Conservative
councils, the Associated Press learns
thut tho make-up of the next Cabinet
will be so similar to that of its predecessor that it will come as a startling surprise. The Marquis of Lans-
dowue, who, next to Mr. Chamberlain, is the object of more attacks
than any other Cabinet member, can
have the War Office portfolio if he
desires, and he will probably accept
it, as he has Implicit belief iu Lord
Roberta and is anxious to operate
with him in reforms which he has
been contemplating for some time,
but would not commence with Lord
Wolseley, late Commauder-in-Chief,
and (leneral Sir Evelyn Wood, Adjutant-General, with whom his relations
were greatly strained. It is untrue
that either Lord Lansdowne or the
Duke of Marlborough huve been offered the Lord-Lieutenancy of Ireland,
and it is quite improbable that either
will have such an offer, though Earl
Codogau does intend to retire, much
to the relief of the leading Conservatives iu Ireland, who are bitterly oppose to Mr. Gerald Balfour's (the
chief secretury) the Earl Cadogan's attempt at non-partisian government.
Lord Salisbury will resume the
Premiership and the Foreign Olliee
portfolio; at least everything he has
said to fellow members of the cabinet
points to his doing so. Probably the
only really important change made
will be in the admiralty for which the
Right Honorable Robert William Han-
bury iii being favorably considered,
though Lord George Hamilton who,
formerly as the head of the admiralty,
could have the portfolio again, but he
prefers to remain at the head of the
Indian olliee. The Earl of Shelbourne
at present Mr. Chamberlain's assistant, has been selected for preferment.
He is regarded as one of the strongest men In the Government, and may
have a seat in the Cabinet in place of
Right Hon. Walter Long, president of
the Hoard of Agriculture. If he docs
he will add one more lo the long list
of Lord Salisbury's relatives controlling Englands' destinies,as he married
the Premier's daughter. Toe vigorous personal attacks upon Mr. Chum-
bcrlain continue and seem to gather
bitterness as the reality of defeat
dawns upon the Liberals. The lion
V. J. Stanhope's reverse at Hurley is
construed by the Conseratvives as a
direct rebuke for his bitter denunciations of Mr. Chamberlain, but Mr.
Stanhope adheres to his attitude, reiterating that he is ready to prove in
the courts that Mr. Chamberlain only
."white washed" Cecil Rhodes in the
llouso of Commons because another
member had letters in his pocket incriminating Mr.Chamberlain with the
raid. This member though not named by Mr. Stanhope, the Associated
Press learns, is Mr. Abel Thomas, a
Liberal, who represented East Carm-
martheushlre in the lust Parliament.
Meanwhile Mr. Chamberlain is apparently unmoved and is serenely sending messages to the nation and stumping the country, putting all his vigor
and strong personality into the campaign, iu marked contrast with the
other Cabinet ministers.
While Mr. Chamberlain is practically tho only interesting figure in
the struggle in England, there arc in
Irelaud several men and issues stirring up the country into such a chaotic condition of party lines as nevpr
occurred before, and it would excite
the greatest interest were it not for tlie
fact that England is occupied with
her own trial contests. It is claimed
that Mr. Timothy M. Ilealy has split
the Irish party to almost as great a
degree as did the late Charles Stewart
Parncll,and the bitterness injected into
the fight equals that of the historic division. The Freeman's Journal declares that any one voting for Mi.
Healy's candidates is "without an
atom of self respect," and describes
his conditions one of "secret calunm-
ny and villification." The paper
blames him for the loss of Gnlway,
Raying: "Galway has disgraced the
national solidarity, broken once more
by tbe treason of renegade home rulers, and the Hag of union has been
planted beyond the Shannon." On
the other hand the Dublin Independent supports Mr. Ilealy, and Cardinal
Logus has also come out with a declaration in his favor. As a result of
the split Londonderry and I a'way
have changed their colois and other
constituences arc likely to follow.

Replied to German
London, Oct. fi.���Lord Salisbury,
the Associated Press understands, answered Germany's last note today, accepting its proposals.
Washington, I). C, Oct. fi.���The
American answer to the French note,
which Is the pending phase of the Chinese negotiations to be disposed of,
has been pretty well defined, although
it will remain for the return of the
president and a cabinet meeting to
give their formal duliniteness. Already, however, intimations have
been conveyed to some of the foreign
renresentativus that the government
may not be able to concur in the introduction of arms; into China, and
also that there may be serious constitutional reasons requiring at least
two of the French proposals to be submitted to the American Congress before they can be acted upon affirmatively. These two latter propositions
relate to the establishment of a permanent legation guard at Pekin aud
to the permanent maintenance of a
line of communication from Pekin to
the sea. The permanency of these
plans appears to involve a possiblity
of territorial occupation, though of a
limited character, both at Pekin and
along the road from Pekln to the sea,
and it is understood there will be constitutional reasons making it desirable
to submit them to congress. .
Klondike Will Soon Be Connected With the Outside World.
Ottawa, Oct. C���An otllclal assessment return of Ottawa shows that in
spite of the disastrous lire last spring,
the lightning message Hashed to Canada's farthest north from liritisli Columbia's mercantile metropolis.
The last letter from lla/elton is
dated September H. It is from one of
the foreman of construction. The
writer says:
"Wc are now SO miles from the other gang, working our way; we are
making easily two and one-half miles
a day, and presuming the other gang
is making tlie same rate of progress������
and they have an easier route to travel than we have���allowing for all
kinds of accidents, we should join
hands with them before October 1."*
It is understood that the inauguration of tlie new line will take place
probably on Monday next.
Vancouver, II. C, Oct. ��.���It is but
a matter of days when the great Klondike will be connected by telegraph
with the rest of the civilized world;
when from the great Centers of capital
will be Hashed the momentous messages which will mako or mar men,
lion Id millionaires, and move vast
sums of money from the old world to
the new. No more anxious waiting;
days of doubt and fear that New York
or England may have cooled down be-
ore the tardy message reaches the
great money markets of the world, for
a proposition can be made at Canada's
world-famed gold diggings to far-off
England and the answer received iu a
few hours.

Vancouver's Island Is Once
More to Be a Bone of
Vancouver, Oct. 8.���Thco. l.udgate,
who acquired a lease to Headman's
Island in Vancouver Harbor, for the
purpose of building a mill thereon,
and who was hindered in his enterprise by the city of Vancouver and the
Provincial Government, who both
laid claim to the ownership of the
island, as a precious piece of scenery,
and who afterward in a fit of disgust
at liritisli Columbia in general and
the city of Vancouver in particular,
moved to Seattle and erected a handsome mill there has again been heard
Mr. Ludgnte says lie is going to
stand by his guns, and he demands
that the suit pending between the
Province of Hritish Columbia and the
Canadian Government as to the legality of his lease to Dcadinan's Island
be proceeded with, as he intends, as
soon as this can be settled, to build a
duplicate of his Seattle mill in Vancouver's harbor. If. however, the case
should go against him, Mr. Ludgate
says he will turn his back on Hritish
Columbia forever and increase tho capacity of his Seattle mill to twice its
present dimensions. Macllonnell, Mr.
Ludgates lawyer, on being spoken to
regarding the mill stated that Mr.
Ludgate was anxious to compromise
tlie matter at once, but failing the
eoinpromi.se desired, that the trial be
brought on immediately. Mr. Mac-
Doiinell said he would move directly
in the matter in a few days. Dead-
man's Island is a pretty piece of scenery enjoyed by West End residents,
and as the workingnien chiefly live in
the east and the well-to-do residents
in the west, Mr. I.udgate's recent
light for his rights divided the eity
into two factions, aud shuuld the
matter be again brought up, it is
thought that Mr. Ludgate for the
second time will be a big factor in
politics, as the Dominion elections are
drawing near, and one of the candidates in the Conservative Interests,
Mayor Garden, wns mainly responsible
in compelling Mr. l.udgate to desert
Vancouver for Seattle.

Between ~ and B o'clock tomorrow
morning tbe local telephone service
will be changed from the old to the
new switchboard, ami Nelson will
then have just as good a service as
any iu Hritish Columbia. For two
weeks they have been installing at the
office entirely new fittings und Hie
work upon it will be completed tonight. Everything installed is of
the lair i ami most, modern make and
the management now guarantees tlie
best satisfaction to subscribers. The
work of installing the new llttiugs
has been under the direction of G. Me
Cartncy of Vancouver, who is foreman
if tlie construction department of the
ompany. The majority of tlie leads
throughout the city have been overhauled. Mr. ,1. C. Bodge, district
superintendent,and who has now been
given complete charge of the local
olliee, said this morning that everything possible had been done to make
it the best service that could be given
and that it would be equal to any
service in the Coast cities.
Seveu large   cables   connecting jhe
olliee with the city whes have been
put in. The cables arc connected with
the new cross board by lino fuse wire
so as to prevent any damage being
done to tlie system by lire. Other precautions to prevent tire have also been
taken. Although six new switch
hoards have been installed arrangements have been made for the installation of additional boards,as the subscription list becomes larger The improvements at tlie otliee have cost the
company over 85,000.   L. li.   Hodge,
who was formerly manager of the local branch here, will be transferred
to the oHice at Greenwood.
Toronto, Oct. fi.���The executive of
the East York Conseravtlves has decided that W. F. McLean. M. P..
(Conservative) is the strongest candidate they can secure and will leave the
nomination stand, despite that* gentleman's determination to resign.
All Individual Coal Operators
Offer an Advance of Ten
Per Gent.
Rcranton. Pa., Oct. 8.���In compliance with the agreement of the Individual Coal Operator's Association,
covering the Lackawanna and Wyoming Valley, to give an Increase in
wages to their striking mine employes,
the following notices signed by each
operator in the Association and post
ed for himself at the mine controlled
by him was issued this morning:
"This company makes the following announcement to its mine employes. It will adjust its rate of
wages so as to pay its mine employes
on and after October l.aud until further notice, a not advance of ten per
cent on the wages heretofore received.
Note. ��� It is understood in the foregoing thut the powder will be sold to
miners for 11,60 per keg and that the
difference between this rate and the
old rate of 8-. Vr> shall be taken into
account in figuring the net advance of
the price noted above for this class of
work. "
This is identical in form with the
notice posted in the Hazelton region.
This notice was nut up at not less
than sixty mine openings during the
morning but nobody went to work.
Inquiry at the offices of several of tlie
operators revealed the belief that the
strike could not continue much longer,
probably not over another week, as
by that time the miners and laborers
would thoroughly undeistand the situation and realize just what the increase means. It was also learned
that the rate applied to ex-cry condition of earnings that held before the
strike was declared, and this meant
that the allowance for "dead" work
and hard places would stand.
Coming to Nelson Next Wednesday
For Fire Department Hoys.
Alba lleywood and ills Comedy Company will appear at the Nelson Opera

the auspices of tlie Nelson Fire Department members. Tickets will be
on sale this evening at Teet/.el's drug
store and Lillie Hros. shoe store and
the plan will be opened in the Post-
ollice store ou Monday morning.
From the advance notices it would appear that the attraction is to be an
excellent one and fully deserving of
generous support.

Tbe Vancouver World is trying to
decleve its readers, for it is saying a
great many things it does not believe
in the hope of helping Laurier candidates iu this Province. It publishes a
long list of things which it says the
Government at Ottawa have caused to
he done, all intended to retlcct credit
on the Liberal party and to commend
them to the renewed contldencc of the
people. But strangely enough they
are almost without exception wholly
unfounded or misleading. It will he
worth while to run through the list.
The first to the credit of the Government is:
"The settlement of the school   ques
Those who are most intimntoly concerned with it declare that the school
question Is not settled, and the Premier and his friends are uncomfortably
conscious that there is much truth in
the declaration.
"The reduction of the tariff."
This is unmitigated impudence.
Taking the average of the duties on
all imports during the last four years
of Conservative administration and the
four years of the Laurier Government,
and the difference is less than three-
quarters of one per cent.���a calculation made by Hon. Mr. Foster shows
it to be less than a third of one per
cent.    That is no reduction.
"The granting of a preference to
Great Britain,"
Under the circumstances the people
will hardly be disposed to put this to
the credit of the Government.
"Sending of Canadian volunteers to
South Africa. "
Yes, when driven to it by the Canadian people, whose indignation at
the Premier and Mr. Tarte had an
ominous sound to it.
"Tlie establishment of penny post
After fifteen or twenty years of agitation by Mr. Ilenniker llcnton, a
member of the Imperial Parliament.
"The vigorous development of transportation facilities."
There has been vigorous development
of transpoi tation facilities these last
twenty years.
"The establishment of the postal
note system."
Copied from Great ltritain and the
I'nited States.
"The placing of the Intercolonial
Railway on a paying basis."
Only on paper, in actual results
the railway is not paying, and never
"The abolition of land grants to
railways. "
This is something new. It was not
the policy in that charter to the Yukon Railway. When was it adopted?
"The opening up and establishment
of liberty, law. and order in the Yukon, without cost to the Dominion."
It is a habit to establish law, order, and liberty wherever the Hritish
Mag Hies, but it is usually done without the scandals attending the government of the Yukon.
'The abolition of the monstrous
Franchise Act."
The Franchise Act was cumbrous
and expensive, but it was not monstrous. It was a better Act than the
present   one.
���The attempted repeal of the Infamous Gerrymander Act."
In order that ono equally infamous
might be   substituted.
"The establishment of a perfect system of cold storage for the transportation of onr produots to Great Britain "
The cold storage ssyteui was devilled and established by Prof. Robertson, of the Agricultural Department,
under the Governments of Sir John
Thompson, Sir Mackenzie Howell, and
Sir Charles Tupper. The finishing
touches may have been given under
Sir Wilfrid Lauricr, but nothing
'"The reservation of Dominion lands

"The Liberals under Sir Wilfrid
Laurier,'' says The Wcenwpoa Times)
have done more towaidH securing a
recognition of Canadian claims to
greatness among the nations of the
earth and towards increasing the good
feeling that existed betweon the
Mother Country and her Colonies."
The Times is much too intelligent to
believe such stulf as this, aud it
should be too honest to give exprcs
siou to il. For several years before
Sir Wilfrid came on the carpet events
were mailing for Canada's opportunity,and the Queen's Jubilee was the occasion for its demonstration. Tho feeling or sentiment, which has taken on
the name id' Imperialism, hud been
growing, and then burst into llower.
Under the enthusiasm of the occasion
it would have burst into llower if the
editor of The Times bad been Premier of Canada. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
owes infinitely more to the ripening
of the sentiment than the Sentiment
owes to him. All that has taken place
was coming in any event, and it was
coming because the people of the United Kingdom were awakening to the
magnificence of that Greater Britain
which they had been seeing more or
less darkly in their dreams. Sir Wilfrid's connection with it consisted entirely of tlie happy circumstance of being in a front place when the time
came. He did not create it or producu
it, any more than did the earth quake
when lie was born.
The Ministerialists are already assured of their old majority in the
Hritish House of Commons, and in
the remainder of the pollings we may
expect a more generous return of Liberals. The constituencies that were
considered safe for them have been
held back to the last. The Irish Nationalists, who arc playing a game of
their own���and it is not one that is
exciting a great deal of general interest���will probably return to Westminster in their usual strength.
Out of the four hundred aud fifty or
live hundred members already elected
tothe liritisli House of Commons there
are three Laboritcs. What these can
expect to accomplish in a company
where their presence cannot make itself felt is beyond ordinary comprehension.

Tn Hun Franolaco there is a wee mite
nf �� baby that has already become en-
tan.led In wore of Uncle Sam's rod
than it can lie freed from In
M' "'long day. The baby 1. �� China,,, waif, brought to America for the
"opposed purpose  of   heinB   sold   into
slavery as
soon as she prows to be old
Inongh���for the baby is a girl, with
tiny black   eyes   that   look  like   shoe
buttons-ami l;"u'�� Sam is   determined \o send   her   back   to   China.    But
how?   That   iB the question that   has
!_,���   bothering   his   oliiclals   at   the
Golden Gate.   They    can't   send  the
babv  liuelt   acrosB   the   l'uclflc   alone
and they cannot compel nnyono to aet
as long-dUtanoe   nurse   for   her.    Ho,
for the present and until Uncle Sam's
officials  can   And   a   Chinese   woman
who is making a trip to the   Celestial
kingdom���which will not be tor   some
time unless  the   Chinese war   Bhould
end suddenly���Uncle Sam will bavo to
keep liis Httle charge-   wrapped   up in
red tape.    The baby's  name Is   Wong
Yut Ho, aud she is not two years old.
Nobody knows juat who she   is.    She
came to this country   on   the arm of a
Chinese   woman,   who   said   she was
the child's aunt.    The aunt's name is
Si Lin, and she is the wife  of   a Chinese merchant at Virginia   City.    She
saiil the child's parents had both died
in China, aud that   there were no relatives left there   that  could   care   for
Which was a very pretty and touching tale but the officials did not believe it. There are many "aunts" who
briug Chinese nieces to this country
for no other purpose in the world than
to find a market for them as soon as
they reach a marketable ago.
And, besides, the Chinese immigration laws do nut make provision for
the importation of "nieces" and
"nephews," genuine though the claim
of relationship may be. The law provides that only Chinese who have lived in this country and have gone back
home for a visit, and merchants, students, teachers, officials, tourists and
those bom here of Chinese parents
ainy be eligible to roside iu this country.
But what were they to do with her'.'
They could not start her back across
the Pacitle with uo one to caro for
her,and tuck her away in a berth and
feed rice and milk to her any number
of times a day. And there was no
provision made by the law whereby a
special attendant could be employed
to make the trip. Queer, isn't it,
how oareleos lawmakers can be sometimes?
Miss Donald Cameron, the young
..hi,.11 of the Presbyterian Chinese
mission, came to Uncle Sam's relief
while he looked around a bit and
took Wong Yu Ho as a prisoner���a
prisoner of the great Uncle Sam; for
all Chinese who arc denied admission
to the I'nited States are kept as prisoners uutl a way can be found to send
them back home.
And Wong Yu Ho lias been through
the courts���where she dug bur lists
into her tiny eyes and yelled aud
tried to pull the hair of the stenographer.
She didn't pay much attention to
the judge aud the lawyers, and left
them to their own sweet ways while
they argued and contended and quoted law aud examined witnesses and
attempted to make each other shoulder
tlie responsliblities until they got
Wong Yu Ho���and themselves���all
tangled up in more red tape.
Hut they could not discover a way
in whieh Wong Yu Ho could be got
rid of until they should Und some
Chinese woman who was going back
home for a visit and would undertake
to care for the little waif. So Miss
Cameron took the baby to tho mission,
and fed her copiously from a big
howl of rice und milk.
When she gets back to China���if.in-
decii, some way Is not found to keep
her here and out of the reach of the
"aunt" and those who are suspected
of harboring designs of selling her to
����me rich Chinese merchant���she will
eeiue to be the mission pet and will
become once more, only a very small
atom in the composition of the Sleeping lilant of the   Orlont.

In one corner of the pavilion in the
City of ParlB in the Exposition
.rounds is a strange exhibit. All
around the room, In frames, on transparent sheets of glass, are the photographs of men and women who have,
evidently, something wrong about
There are evil faces, cunning faces,
brutal faces, few good-looking, many
simply wretched. There arc two pho-
totrvahps of each person, a full front
and a profile. Under each pair is seen
a card with lllled-up blanks.
They are said to be photographs of
criminals. It 1b the exhibit of the
Betrtillon system for the Identification of the enemies   of  society.    Tbe
photograhps ure valuable for this purpose; but the Insignlticaut looking
cards, filled in with measurements,
mane the perfection of the device.
What is tbe real result of the Uerttl-
lon system'.' The inventor of it calls it
a merciful device that promises to
lead, in the far future,to "anonymous
convictions, the safeguarding of family reputations."
Its teudeuey is to punish the wrong
does, not once for one crime, but many
times for the one crime; in fact, as
many times as he Is called up, on
suspicion, before the bar of justice.
In Paris, any man accused of any
crime or misdemeanor, be it even a
breach of the peace or an insult to a
policeuiun, if he have not influence to
get off befoie the committing magistrate, is hustled to the central depot,
there to be investigated and wait
He may be Innocent, but the first
thing that happeuB to him there is to
be marched up high into "the tower"
of the anthropometric service, to be
measured, photographed and identified by moles, scars, beauty spots
and other accidents. He may be
released the next day or within a
week or month, without a stain upon
his character.
The stain will always rest upon his
record nevertheless, because he has
been photographed, described and
classed. Now see the injustice of it.
True the outside public has uo right
to consult these records. The police
always have the right.
And let this man be arrested again,
within one year, or five, or ten, and
the first thing discovered of him will
be that ho has been photographed,
described and classed before. A grave
presumption is set np immediately. It
has nothing to do with the present accusation, of course; and the man was
discharged that first time without
the stain ou his character.
Nevertheless the record is there. He
has already had to do with justice.
Now he is suspected twice, once for
the thing of which he is accused today, and again for that thing against
which he justified himself a year ago,
or five, or ten. It ought to have been
wiped off the slate. It has not been
wiped off.
Such iB the ingenuity of the system
there is no chance to escape its damming Identifications. liased on the
principle that no two It .ves in a forest of 100,0110 trees are exactly alike
in all their measurements and markings, it confidently relies, for identification of tbe Infinitely more complicated human body, on a system of
comparisons that one by one eliminate
all but the individual who responds
to its data.
A hundred may have exactly tho
same diameter of head, from back to
front, from side to side. Not all of
the hundred will have at the same
time, the same measurement of the
right leg from  knee to  ankle,   Still
fewer of such will have the Bame arm
measurement from shoulder to elbow.
And so it goes on, elimination to
elimination, until card after card of
the immense collection is thrown
asido us not applicable, and one single
card is left���the card whose measurements apply in every case.
This is the man. In vain he will
deny it. They know it is he; and
when, to cap the climax, they say to
him: "You ought to have a small
sear on your left hip, four centimeters from the pelvic joint, and a hairy
mole on your right shoulder," he has
nothing to do but to give in.
Mr. W. A. HinnH of Manchester, Iu.,
writing of his almost miracnlons
escape from death, says: "Exposure
after measles induced serious lung
trouble, whioh ended in Oonsnmptlon.
I hail frequent hemorrhages and
conghed night and day. All my doctors said I must soon die. Then I began to use Dr. King's New Discovery
for Consumption, which completely
onred me. I would not be witbont it
even if it cost $5.00 a bottle. Hundreds bave used it on my recommendation and all say it nnver fails to oure

lull feet "f shafting has been sunk,
with considerable drifting on the
lead. The present work will be started at the ion-foot level, and it is intruded to run this level over 1(111 feet
on the vein. The ore is free milling
and the assay returns show that it is
of a high grade anil similar to the
Athabasca and I'oorman mines. Tlie
vein is from two to three feet wide
and is marked by well defined slate
walls. Mr, Parker stated this morning that the property had shown up
so well that it was the intention of
the company to install a five-stamp

Columbia secured SO, Washington 18,
and Idaho, (iregon and Montana one
In making their report the judges
found that, as a whole, while the display was not so large as last year, the
arrangement and display of samples
was much superior, They also said :
"Photographs, maps, mine models
anil assay eerticliates havo been very
prominent and are a most desirable
feature of such exhibits, adding very
materially to the attractiveness of
the displays.
"The preservation of such an'exhib-
it as an intact whole, so far as possible and its permanent and continuous
display for the lieneiit of the eity aud
the miners and investors sliould be the
first duty of tlie exposition authorities. "

Kaslo. It. ('.. Oct. ii. An offer of
SIOii.llllil cash was refused by Ihe owners of the  Victoria group on   Meadow
Creek  in   the   Lardo-Dunoan,   This
property, which is owned entirely by
Kaslo people, was under bond for 130,���
don last year to Toronto people, but
was not worked by them because,
winter coming too soon, they were
not able to get into it. Since then
nothing bus been done, and this cash
offer, coining tlumigli Charles Caldwell, being  refused by  the owners Is
thought to indicate a possible resunip*
tion in the near future.
The King Solomon Mining Company, which bought the property of
the old Canadian Pacific Mining Company on the shore of Kootenay Lake
at Woodbury Creek, is doing extensive
dcvolopment. It is building a large
office building and a residence for the
manager, and also applying for a
crown grant of the water front. There

The directors of the Valparaiso Mining Company gave an excursion to tlie
mine on Sunday. About :io people
availed themselves of the opportunity
and visited the property. The mine
is only about a mile from the mouth
of Goat Creek and can be seen from
the lake. Manager Grothe showed the
party through the workings. The
company is working only four men at
present, but intends putting on a large
force and developing the property
thoroughly. The tunnel is in 300 feet
and has cut the lead at a depth of I3S
feet. The lead has been drifted on for
30 feet each way. The lodge is 1(1 feet
wide, and can be traced over eight
claims, two of which belong to the
Valparaiso company. Although the
entire ledge is mineralized the pay-
Streak is only five feet wide. The ore
is free-milling gold and could qe
worked on the grounds at very little
expense. A ton of ore was shipped to
the Hall Mines Smelter at Nelson aud
returns of 8?'-' in gold and Sli in silver given. Another trial shipment of
a ton is ready at the lake shore.

Republican Leader Narrowly Escapes
Serious Injury.
Chicago, Oct. 4.���Senator M. A.
Ilanna was the target for a Ill-pound
chunk of ice last night at a Bepubli
can meeting. The missile was dropped through an aperature in the tent
directly over the speaker's stand. It
did not miss Banna's head over two
inches, and had it struck him would
have knocked him down aud probably
fractured his skull. The police who
surrounded the speaker's stand were
astounded for a moment, and then
made a rush for the street. Senator
Ilanna retained his composure and
quietly seated himself,while Congress
man ,1. S. Mann went on with the
speech-making. The police found the
place where the ice had been placed
on the sidewalk, but could get no
trace of the person who threw it.
They sai I it was probably the work
of some mischievous boy who had se-
ered the ice lit a neighboring saloon.
Senator Ilanna left the tent escorted
by a double row of police.

Vancouver, II. ('., Oct. li. -Hip
Luck, the highbinder accused of flu'
murder of Chief of Police Main nf
Stevenston, has pleaded guilty and
has also implicated two other Chinese
in the crime. Tlie prisoner was unrepresented by counsel, and the presiding judge did not at lirst wish In
accept the idea of guilty in such a serious case. He bad tlie interpreter explain to the Chinaman that when
white men were tried for murder it
was usual for them to plead not
guilty, the consequences of tbe crime
being so serious. This was all explained to the prisoner, who only replied: "1 can only plead guilty; the
three of us killed Main. "
The  Crown   prosecutor   asked  that
the plea of guilty be accepted.

Having this day taken over the Business of The Western ��"���
Mercantile Company, Limited of Nelson, we beg to ask for a W-
continuance of the patronage which you have heretofore ex- t_
tended to them. Our aim will be at all times to supply you g
with the best goods at lowest possible prices; being in a posi- gj
lion to buy goods in larger quantities than any firm in the ^
kootenays, we will therefore give you the benefit of the margin.
The same staff which has waited on you in the past will
continue to do so, aud they will spare no pains in making the
dealings both pleasant and profitable to you. To those who
have not honared the retiring firm with a share of their patronage, we would ask you to come and have at least a trial order,
when you will be convinced our prices are the lowest, and our
goods are the best.
