Nelson, British Columbia. Wkdnesday, September 27,  1899.
Tenth Year
HALF A MILLION
The Bank of British North
America
COLLECTOR SUSPENDED
Department at Ottawa After Investigation Suspends a Bevelstoke
Collector.
Vancouver, Sept. 26.���The City of
Seattle and Cottage Oity arrived at So-
attle ou Sunday, from Lynn canal.
Nearly 400 passengers wen on the re-
turuing liners. The combined gold
dust cargo of the two boats probably
reached $550,000. The Bank of British
Noith America, of Dawson, had a
single Klondike shipment of nearly
$400,000 which came on the Seattle. It
was consigned through the Aluska-
Pacific express company, an adjunct of
the Northern Pacific, to the Seattld
Government assay office. From the
steamer tho gold was removed under
police escort from the City of Seatth to
tho Northern Pacific's depot express
office,and later in the day was conveyed to the assay establishment.
Vancouver, Sept. 86.���Chief Inspector MoMichael, of the Customs department, Ottawa, lias made an investigation of the amount at the Revelstoke
eustoms office. As a result of the inspection the Revelstoke collector was
suspended for irregularities.
OBJECT TO THE POLES.
walks that reach so far heavenward
aud have nothing to keep pedestrians
from stepping into unknown perils he-
low on dark nights will be remedied.
The Board decided that a railing
would ho put on the sidewalk on tho
south side of Si lira street, between
Hondryx and Oednr.
Several   other   minor  matters were
disposed of.
Board of Works Wishes to Improve the
Appearance of City Streets.
The City must he oonsnlted when
poles are erected in the streets and the
request of the telephone company for
permission to erect more poles, which
came before tne Board of Works at a
meeting held yesterday led to the
Board coming out in favor of putting
the poles in alleyways instead of along
the streets. To the ordinary citizen
there would appear to be no objection
to such a change,as poles ou streets are
always ungainly, hut the rights of the
telephone company and the expense to
which it would be put in making the
change aro to be considered, so the
Mayor and the chairman of the Board
of Works wore appointed a committee
to go into the matter with the company and see what oould he done to
bring about the desired result.
A petition from D. Morris and others
for the grading of Baker street from
Railway to Slocan was read, but the
Board appreciatedjthe fact that a policy of retrenchment had to be inaugurated some time or other, and decided
that there were ho funds available for
the purpose.
F. J. Bradley and others petitioned
to have their properties on Victoria
street, east of Josephine, supplied with
a sewer, and it was decided to start on
this work today.
The question of allowing Mr. Madden to put in au area on the sidewalk
to supply au entrance to the barber
Bhop which will occupy the basement
corner of bis new block was left over
until the receipt of further information. There seemB to be a whole lot of
mysterious things mixed up with this
matter, and it is the intention of the
City fathers to se'tle all of tne'n at
ouce.
The tenders for a fire alarm system
were considered, but again the matter
of no funds came up. However, it was
agreed that there was no objeotion to a
company putting in a system on a
rental basis.
The Board recommended that the
Clarke Hotel he compelled to connect
with the sewer on Victoria street, and
that the City Engineer be instructed
to stop any further discbarge into the
Ward Rtreet drain.
The Oity Engineer was also instructed to start work on the sewer on
Kootenay street from Mines Road to
the lane in Mock 28, and from Kootenay along lanes on blocks 15 and 28 on
Stanley street. This work will he done
by day labor.
Two mon will he dispatobed to the
fume to make a ditch to run water to
Cottonwood Lake.
One of those very objectionable side-
WIRELESS  TELEGRAPHY.
Seattle, Wn., Sept. 26.���Supt. Prit-
cbell, of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic
survey, announces that he will make a
new and somewhat novel use of wireless telegraphy. Next season the U. S.
S. Pathfinder will be sent to Alaskan
waters to survey the islands of the
Aleurian groups near Unimak pass.
The islauds, Pritchell says, have nev-
or been correctly located on Government oharts and maps. The Pathfinder
was built a year ago at Elizabeth, aud
is equipped with the latest appliances
and instruments, inoluding apparatus
for the new system of telegraphy. Several islands of the Aleutian group lying between fifteen and twenty miles
apart, near Unimak pass, have been
selected as a field for the use of wireless telegraphy. By means of the system the difference in longitude of the
islands will he determined to a fine
point.
TROUBLE AHEAD.
Auckland, Sept. 26.���Advices from
Samoa,under date of September 20, received here today, say quiet prevails
there, but the feeling among the whites
is that there is trouble ahead. It is
added thnt Von Buelow, the former
Lieutenant in the German army, who
organized tho forces of Mataafa, has
been going about the country interviewing the Mataafa chiefs. This was
objected to by the British and Americans as likely lo accentuate the hostile
feelings. The correspondent of The
Gazette at Samoa has received cable
instructions to remain at Apia.
THE EARTHQUAKE.
Washington, D. O, Sept. 26���A report received by the coast survey shows
that the earthquake recently reported
in Ynkatat Bay, was also felt in Prince
William Sound. At Orca the shocks
ccourred at half hour intervals, beginning at 2 :!I0 p.m., mean local time, on
Sunday, Sept. 8. They were still continuing at 8 p. ra. on that day when
the report closed. No damage was reported.
BROKE AWAY.
Seattle, Wn., Sept. 26���Advires received here slate that while the transport Viotory was at Dutch Harbor a
band of horses numbering 400, belonging to the Government.en route to Manila, broke away from their keepers
and stampeded. Seventeen were killed
by jumping over a oliff.
RIOT IN SPAIN.
Ferrol, Spain, Sept. 26.���There has
been renewed rioting here. The strikers' women and children attacked the
men at work in the arsenal. Stones
were thrown and revolver Bhots fired.
The gendarmes charged and dispersed
the mob. A number of persons were
injured, including tho cammander of
the irouclad Cardinal Cisneros. Troops
are now picketed along the leading
streets.
GOOD   RETURNS.
Vancouver, B. C, Sept. 26���Mr. R.
T. Ward, of Hosefly, visited Ashcroft
last week and left with the Bank of
British North America a substantial
amount of gold from the Horsefly mine.
The Horsefly gold mine bas so far this
season shipped $25,000, the expenses
having been only about $8,000.
MOTOR OARS.
Vancouver, Sept. 26.���Messrs. Armstrong and Morrison, who are tbo ohief
movers in a local syndicate organized
to place motor cars ou the Vanoonver
streets, exhibited their first automobile

MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT ILL.
Vancouver, B. C. Sept. 26.-G. R.
Maxwell. M. P., returned from Government business in the north today,
seriously indisposed and under the doctor's and trained nurse's oare,
ARE WORKING FOR PEACE
Premier Schreivner Telegraphs in the Interests of Peace.
SAYS THE IRISH AHE IN BONDAGE.
Manifesto Issued by the Irishmen in Johannesburg-
lution Passed Asking For the Recall of
the Colonist Forces.
-Reso-
New York, Sept. 26.���The Commercial Advertiser's London financial cablegram says:
The markets here were idle and
heavy tolay, on account of Mr. Chamberlains's curt and emphatic dispatch
to the Transvaal, which was interpreted in siiiiie quarters as meaning war.
Pieterraaritzburg, Natal, Sept. 20.���
The troops that were yesterday moved
from LadyBmith to Dundee, inoluding
Leicestershire regiment, ^the Royal
Dublin FiiHiloeis, 200 mounted infantry and the 18th Hussars, will form
a new camp at Glencoe, their places
being filled by others en route from India. The movement was executed so
smartly and unexpectedly that the
Boers were unaware of it, until it was
actually accomplished. ,
Loudon, Sept. 26.���The general feeling including that of the pro-Boers, as
indicated by articles in the afternoon
newspapers today is that tbe published
despatch of the Secetary of Stare for
the Colonies, Mr. Jos. Chamberlain, to
the British High Commissioner in
Sooth Africa, Sir Alfred Milner, may
clear tbe way for peace if the Boers
desire it. In any event it is pointed
out it* affords further delay, whijh, in
the case of Great Britain, is certainly
advantageous, as it gives the time for
the reinforcement of the garrison at
the Cape. The papers generally, however, express the hope that President
Kruger will see his way to meet Great
Britain's viev, and the Westminster
Gazette, which is not an anti-Boer
paper, says:
"President Krnger and his advisers
still have a chance of seouring peace
with independence."
In the meanwhile the despatch of
troops to South Arica proceeds uninterruptedly. Three field batteries arrivod
at Birkendead today aud will embark
for Durban, Natal.
A cablegram from Capetown says:
"Quantities of stores and ammunition are leaving here daily. The
movement of troops to Natal is merely
a precautionary measure to Beoure the
coal mines, and is in no wise in the
nature of a menace. There are no Imperial troops on the immediate border.
Rumors of collisions should be received with caution."
Capetown, Sept. 26.���Tho Sot, i
African News today prints a despatch
from Pretoria saying the alleged
ohange in the British jmblic opinion
nnd the alarming roports subsequent to
the mooting of the Cabinet aro considered hopeful signs. There is no official
news from Bloomfontein. There is not
the slightest doubt, though, about the
attitude of the Orange Free State. At
a meeting of tho Scndinavians there it
was unanimously deoided to support
the Government. Only 20 members of
the Free State R-iad are in town,nnd it
Is thought the Legislature v. ill dissolvo
at any moiu��iit.
The Jews at a meeting resolved to
support the Government, and have
oTered to equip and provision a police
corps ot 200 men. Piet Krnger, grand-
ion of the President of the Transvaal,
in a letter to the Volksraad, asks
whether or not it is the Government's
duty to inform the Imperial Govern
ment that any further landing of
troops will be considered a casus belli.
There iB feverish aotivity in all departments, and the despatoh of riders carrying instmotions to towns removed
from the telegraph lines is continuous.
recall the Colonists' forces ou the bolder, us their presence there is inimical
to peace and is calculated to cause
trouble with their fellow Afrikanders.
Johannesburg, Sep. 26.���A manifesto
has been issued here hy a number of
Irishmen urging the Irish to strike a
good blow at England, which has held
the "Irish reople long in bondage."
A telegram from Premier Schreiuer,
Johannesburg, was read, saying the
Government was working for peace.
The meeting, notwithstanding, passed
tho resolution, which was supported by
two Justices of the Peace.
London, Sept 26.���The Times todny
has a despatch from Pietenmiritzbnrg,
Natal, reporting that a meeting wheh
has aroused a strong feeling among
the Royalists was lie! I by the Afnknu-
ders. A strongly worded resolution
was passed aikiug tbe  Government to
Pretoria, Sept. 26.���The indications
at the agency of the Transvaal Government in this city point to the belief
that war is inevitable. Preparations
are being made for removing the furniture frcm the headquarters, and the
gloomiest impression in regard to the
outcome of the crisis seems to prevail.
Mr. Montague White, Consul General
of the South African Republic in
London, wished to return to Pretoria,
but was informed by his Government
that in the event of war he would be
more useful at Brussels.
DEWEY ARRIVES.
Olympia off Sandy Hook.���Health Inspector Aboard
New York, Sept. 26.���The Olympia,
witb Admiral Dewey on board, arrived
and anchored in the lower bay at 7 :40
this morning.
Soon after noon a health officer left
quarantine on a tug to board and in-

RELIEF  BY MOUNTED POLICE.
Vancouver, Sept. 26.���Steamer Tees
arrived from the north today, bringing
news that Colonel Steele,of tbe Mounted Police, has despatched relief to the
victims of the Mackenzie River trail,
by Corporal Skirvrng and a small party whom he took into the wilderness
from Ponupine month about a month
ago. The expedition which is to verify
reports as to the destitute condition of
the Maokenzie River men, will go up
the Porcupine to the portage to west
' Rat River, tben   over   the  mountains
to the Peel Portage to the Mackenzie,
aud follow that river down as far as
Fort McPherson. The men are provisioned for six weeks and have thoroughly competent guides. Their mission
has been undertaken in consequence of
the very distressing reports that have
reached Dawson from the Fort Mo-
Phorson country during the past six
months.
THE AFTERMATH.
Washington, Sept. 26.���Consul Aynie
reports to the State Department from
Guadaloupe that tbe loss of property
from tiie tropical hurricane amounts
to at least $5,000,000. Forty deaths
and over 200 seriously wounded are reported form vuiiouB parts of the island.
Tho city is a mass of wreckage,
while the harbor front is lined with
wrecks of large and small boats. The
Consul says the fiuit crop is a total
loss, and that famine threatens the
island. He says the series of misfortunes which the island has passed
through, earthquakes, destructive tires
and a financial crisis, probably will
force the colony to appeal to the out
side world for assistance.
CHARGED WITH MURDER.
Ogden, Utah, Sept. 26.���Tom Top-
ham, a saloon keeper, is in jail,charged with murder, and Charles L. Webster, a cigar manufacturer, lies dead
in his residence as a result of a quarrel
over borrowed money, which took
place Saturday. Webster said he had
borrowed $5 from Topham and repaid
him. Topham claimed that Webster
still owed it. An altercation resulted
iu blows. Topham kuooked Webster
down and jumped on him, injuring
bim so severely that he died at 4:30
this afternoon.
CAPE NOME.
Seattle, Wn., Sept. 26.���Steamer Alliance arrived from St. Miohael this
morning with 158 passengers, including Count de Carets aud Captains
Richardson and WTalker, United States
Army. The former was succeeded in
command of the Yukon soldiers by
Colonel Ray. He and Captain Walker
have been ordered to San Francisco.
Captain Walker commanded the St.
Michael and the Capo Nome forces now
in charge of Lieut. Cochran of the 7th
infantry. Captain Walker spent several
weeks at Cape Nome before hie rotnru.
He declared the district one of groat
riohnpBs, but says 1,200 or 1,500 people
must leave before the close of navigation to avoid distress. Should all the
population attempt to puss the winter
at Capo Nonio, he believed there can
but be shortage of both provisions and
fuel. The beach wood supply is already
running short. Captain Walker said
men who come in from Dawson caused
the meeting of miners which were dispersed. There was talk that the army
stood in with the corporations and rich
individuals. That is a bundle of absurdity, We did as wo thought proper.
It was our duty to break up the meeting. 	
REPORT CONFIRMED.
Washington, D O, Sept 26-The following despatch is from Admiral Watson :
Manila, Sept. 25���Secretary of the
Navy, Washington :���Gunboat Urdaneta, Cadet Welborn O. Wood, commanding, has been captured and destroyed by the insurgents, while blook-

FIRE AT   ROSSLAND.
Nine Buildings Entirely Consumed���
Loss $5,000.
Rossland, Sept. 26.���At 7 :55 tonight
a fire started just below Nickel Plate
flat on the west of Centre Star gulch
and south of the Second Avenue
bridge. A very stioug north wind
prevailed, and in a few moments five
ot six buildings were in tlames. Owing to the prompt action of the Chief
and the fire brigade, the fire was confined to a comparatively small area,
about nine buildings  being consumed.
For a time it looked as if tbe whole
westtrn portion of tho city, at leaBt,
was doomed, if not the entire business
section.and people were greatly alarmed. This is the first real fire with a
gale blowing and the buildings hard to
get at that Rossland Iids experienced.
Thoro was plenty of water and good
pressure.    The loss is about $5,000.
CANNOT CHARTER.
Washington, Sept. 2li.-The War Department has been advised that tbis
Government cannot secure a charter of
the transport Anglo-Austrian, for
which an option was recently secured
at San Francisco, on account of tho
need of the British Government for
her services. The Anglo-Austrian is
owned by a British company. As the
charter with this Government has not
been signed, the War Department will
give up its claim. The steamer has a
refrigerating plant, and can carry 50
officers.

ON PARTY LINES.
The near [approach of the Conscrva-
tiro convention, which* Jis^o-��^<i^jf
New Westminster during tbe Fair, lia
revived the discussion of the proposal
to divide in local politics on Federal
party issues. The mere suggestion
seems absurd, for what have Federal
Issues to do with the political affaiis
of British Columbia? That is not the
whole question, however, and the matter is not be disposed of so easily. It
will doubtless come up at the convention, whose action may have much to
do with settling it one way or the
other. It is understood that Victoria
is against party liues and Vancouver
for them ; bow the Mainl ind generally
stands on the question, is,as yet,a matter of oonjeoture, The argument
against is well presented in tbe following from The Victoria Colonist:
"The proposal is a novel one. Nothing of the kind was ever tried before,
except just previous to the general election in New Brunswick last year,
whin it met with a result that is not
especially encouraging to such plans
hereafter A Conservative contention
in that Province deemed it best to declare for a strict party tight in the
local contest, but the result was almost
annihilation of the Opposition party,
iu whose interest the movement was
undertaken. Every Liberal in tbe
Province very naturally voted against
the candidates of the Conservative conventions, and very many Conservatives
declined to withdraw their allegiance
from the Government, No one can
offer any guarantor that just such a
state of things will not be brought
about here if the Conservative convention declares for strict party lines at the
next local contest. It is tolerably certain
that if candidates for the local House
are put us Conservatives, every Liberal
will vote against them, and it is I y no
means certain that all Conservative
supporters of the present Administration will not do the same thing. Mr.
Cotton, who is the virtual leader of
the Government party, is a pronounced
Conservative, and Irs done his full
share towards keeping that party to
the front in this Province. ��� He is not
very likely to efface himself and his
political ambition at the bidding of
any convention. If the Government
were to lose its Liberal support it
would be very much weaker than it
now is, and it could not count upon
receiving Conservative support as an
ntfse*. We need not mention names.
Mr. Cotton will not break with these
people if ho can help it. The Government also has a Conservative snp
port, and if it came du.vn to a Con
servative light against it, will any one
undertake to say that this support
would be lost? With all respact to
any convention that may be held,
either by the Conservative or the Liberal party, we take the position that
neither one nor the other, nor both
oombined, can place local politics on
Federal lines without the oo-opration
of the Government of the day, for the
Government, no matter bow it, may be
composed, will always have a certain
amount of support from both parties,
and tbe margin between tho two in
Federal affairs is not so wide that
either can afford to disregard rhis. The
Government could bring about a conflict on party lines readily enough, but
us long ns it refuses to do so, the
thing ciiimnt be done. There is no
present prospect of the Scnilin-Cottiiii
Government doing anything of the
kind, and a very Influential section of
the Opposition fa Btrenuously opposed
to it,"
This is the practical objection,and it
has force enough to deserve consideration. There is little doubt, with a
mixed Government opposed to the
movement, that a Conservative attempt
to carry the Province on party lines
would meet the fate that befell the
New Brunswick Conservatives. That
may be expected, Bnt tbe division is
bound to come, 111 spite ot any temporary disaster to the party forcing it.
Wu cannot go on as wo aro. Onc-iiian
Government is not desirable. Why
should a party form around Mr. Cotton, ur Mr. Martin, or Mr. Anybody
Else? Let us have parties representing
well understood ond clearly defined
principles, and then we shall havo
Governments with a proper seuso of
responsibility to the people. With
personal Governments our polities can
never rise to a higher levol than the
person for the time thoy represent.
A  "gentleman    in  a  position   to
know,"has been telling the Fort Stoele
Prospector of some] contemplated construction of new lines by the Canadian
Pacific Company. Next year they will
build a north and south line through
or near that place, tliejnaiii object being to provide a [abort route to tli��
Coast. This is necessary, if the development of the coal tralllo from the
Crow's   Nest   mines is   to   fulfill   the
promise of it. With cheap coal at Vancouver, the Cnited States Gorernnieut
will become a large customer, and
other sales will increase. At present
the haul is too long and tlie rale prohibitory, and even by Nelson,the transfers
at Kootenay Lauding and here interpose difficulties thai cannot be surmounted. Il is very piobable that a
line north will he built, but it will
not be exclusively, or principally, because of the coal tniflic. The Crow's
Nest via Nelson is destined to furnish the required short route. The extension to tbi.-- oity will be made
soon, and the iVnticton road is already
under construction. Connection thence
will follow as a matter of course.
When completed, as it will be, we
shall have the shortest route that :an
bo provided, We shall all, nevertheless, wish success to the Fort Steele
project, Railways open the country
and develop its resources, and from
them we nil derive benefit, if not directly, theu indirectly,
Mr. Greeuway in Manitoba is in no
hurry to bring on the elections. We
do not   know that lie  is  in n panic of
sent was considered so unsafe that be
induced tho Legislature at tlie last session to strengthen it by a gerrymander. His Attorney-General will certainly be defeated in South Winnipeg ;
his Minister of Public Works will be
overwhelmed in Portago la Prairie;
his Treasurer is far from safe in Outre Winnipeg, and oven with his gerrymander Mr. Greenwayv himself is not
cocksure for Mountain. The only Minister whose re-election is regarded as
absolutely safe is Mr. Mickle, in British Columbia, and he, worthy gentleman, is too innocent to harm any one.

The Bar Association of Victoria is
preparing to banquet Mr. Mills. That
is a courtesy that would be due to any
Minister of Justice visiting the city.
There will be tbe more pleasure in extending it fo Mr. Mills, because of the
general respect entertained for his
character and abilities. He is an extreme party man in all matters that
legitimately permit of partisanship,
but he is also a man of broad mind,
aud of attainments that rank him
among the very best of our public
men. He is worthy the respect, and
deserves to be honored by British Columbians of all classes, and of both
political parties,
It is said that the Wizard Edison has
prepared a process by which he can extract gold from sand or grav.il by
means of electricity, and that he will
soon leave, for Now Mexico to put his
appliance to practical use. It may be
a mere story, but as nothing seems impossible with Edison, it might be well
to prepare to accept hii latest wonder.
Should it prove successful, there is a
prospect that the world will have more
gold than it bus any uso for, and in
that event the Athabasca, the Lc Hoi,
aud other Kootenay mines may close
down and go home to supper.

TO BE OR NOT TO BE
THAT 13 THE QUESTION ABOUT THE
MUSIO HALL.
Aid, Hillyer's Proposition Has Stirred up
Quite a Bit   of  Discussion
Pro aud O011
Tln-re
not  iiuieb   to   talk   about
l,8Se days ao Aid. Hillyer's proposal
in tbe City Council to allow a music
),all to be established in Nelson, provided a fruitful theme for conversation
yesterday. A Miner man drifted
around ami attempted to sound public
opinion regarding the suggestion.
Tlier' were nil sorts of arguments, pro
and con, but it, seemed to be that the
majority were in favor of opening such
a place of amusement.
"We should not countenance the
opening of a place that would appeal
only to the licentious," soirl one prominent merchant. "My experieuce in
this oountry in that a music hall cannot lie couducted on a plan that will
reflect nny credit on the City in which
it is located. Mind you, I do not
think that musio hnlls themselves are
harmful, for where they are well
conducted they provide much innocent
amusement and assist young men to
spend pleasant hours when otherwise
they might be spending their time iu
a much worse fashion. But, I think
that Nelson is not yet large enough to
support a music halt on tbe proper
scale, aud until it is, we should do
without one."
"Why, certainly," said another citizen, "let tho boys bave a nn.sic ball-
I have always been unalterably oppos
cd to a comiqus, as it is known in this
country, foi it is demoralizing, and in
it the music is made to play a second
fiddle to the bar receipts Of course,
the mure high toned a place becomes
the less of n dividend payer it is. But
I have noticed the growth of a good
many places in this western country,
and I think Nolsot) is now ripe for the
opening of a thoroughly first class musio hall. In wandering around the
town at nights I have seen many
single men. who spend most of their
tiinn around salions, simply because
they have no better pluce to go to, T.t
becomes the duty of tho City to, so far
as possible, pro-idn this class with
some sort of amusement to keep them
out of mischief. A music hull does not
necessarily mean anything particularly terrible. It can be a very bright and
attractive place, it can havo good performers wlio can sing well, and perhaps it can procure a young lady who
can dance well���there can bo nothing
objectionable in that. Now if I go to
a theatre, no matter how good the
show may be, I can always go out between the acts and get some liquid refreshments���what objection can there
ho to my having them while the show
is going on? Tho only possible objection lo a music ball is the fact thnt
beer will be sold during performances,
but those who attend could go out and
get it anyway. It is much more eoni-
foitable to sit in the sent and listen to
n good song while sipping a claret lemonade through n straw than it is to
rise directly after the song and (ramp
across a muddy street to secure the
same beverage. Now if we are going
to have a music hall let us have one in
which there will be no beautiful young
ladies of uncertain' ages persuading
yming gentlemen of tender years to
imrcliase liquid refreshments, I think
the authorities are quite capable of seeing thnt such a place is properly conducted. Of oourse, if it is too vulgar
to appeal to some citizens they nan
stay away"
The arguments advanced against the
establishment of a music hall on any
lines were numerous, but thoy seemed
to consist wholly of objections on the
ground that it was demoralizing and
beneath the dignity of the City to
countenance. Why it should bo demoralizing the objectors did not know, but
hascd their objections ou the experiences of other cities.
There is no saloon licenso open iu
Nelson, so it wil be necessary to put a
by-law before tho people to see if thoy
wish to grant another license, and incidentally to approve of the opening of
a music hall One thing seems to bo
eertain.and that is that if a musio hull
t! started it will bo by Nelson money,
as there are many property owners in
the City who are willing to put their
money into hucIi nu enterprise nnd do
away with the necessity for outside
people doing so.
ence was the impact of the wheel
against him, which knooked him fairly prostrate on the wnlk. The shock
was very severe, and tbe Cartain has
been suffering severely from it since.
The cyclist, instead of stopping to
apologize and see if any injnry had
boon done, went ou bis way laughing
merrily, and evidently considered vhe
matter a huge joke. It was a scurvy
thing to do, and showed the absence of
any part of good breeding on the part
of the rider Such leukless riding ns
this should, by some means or other.be
stopped. The Captain will, if he finds
his booiish assailant, probably mete
out swift justice to bim. Meanwhile
some other luckless occupier of (he
sidewalk mny be run over by this gentlemanly (?) rider.

K. T. Lowery, of New Denver, is in

reports business sightly better in tbe
Lucerne of America. Tho bonding and
working of so many claims on Silver
Mountain, adjacent to the town, is
already having a beneficial effect, and
the dark olonds of adversity thnt have
hovered so long around that beautiful
spot will soon be blown awny by a
breeze of prosperity that will be felt
through all Kootenay.

lias been so successful thnt'bnt a few

The City Council meets this afternoon to finally pass tbe by-law providing for the collection of the road tax.
No time will be lost in gathering in
the money, as the Oity needs it.
H. W. Hawley, who has the contract
for building the Molly Gibson wagon
road, was in tho City yesterday and reports that about five miles of the road
had been completed. The whole job
will be completed by the ond of next
mouth.
The Epworth Leagne of the Methodist ohuroh had a meeting last night
and appointed a committee to oppose
the establishment of a music hall iu
Nelson. The committee is composed of
P. L. Irwin, W. J. Hogg, J. J. Aitkin, J. Weir aud P. C. Winkler.
Reader���Tho first race for the Amer
iea's cup will be sailed next Tuesday,
and the dates of tbe subsequent contests will be delivered by the sniling

that all will be sailed next week.
Shamrock's chances are excellent.
Mr. James Howden, Dominion ox-
pres messenger, who has been on the
run between Nelson and Medicine Hat,
received orders last night to return to
Winnipeg to take up bis headquarters
in that city. His numerous friends in
the Oity and at the Hotel Waverly
wish him a full measure of sucoess in

Sheriff Tuck issued some small blue
invitations to several friends yesterday
to attend the forthcoming fall assizes
and act as jurors "upon tho trial of
several canses to be then and there
tried by jurors." The assizes commence on the 1 ?th of October, but the
docket promises to be small and uneventful.
It was not altogether the item in
The Miner the other morning regarding the large number ot births in Nelson during the past few months that
induced Lillie Bros, to order a specially large shipment of footwear for little people, hut the fact remains that a
very large shipment has been received
by this enterprising linn,and tnero are
no feet in Nelson too small to be well
and comfortably flitted by Lillie Bros.
Mr. Terriok Gordon Hanl'nin and
his wife,a young bride and bridegroom
of three weeks, are registered at the

daughter of Mr. Martin Leacy, of Cardinal, Out., and Mr. Haultain is the
youngest son of tho late Col. W. P.
Haultain (Rovnl Artillery.) Mr. Haultain is connected witb the Yellowstone
mine. And the young conple will
make Nelson their home.
The well known firm of A. Mncdon-
ald & Comp,iny,of this Oity, now have
fourteen carloads of goodB en route
from different points, which they expect to arrive early in October. They
will receive six car loads from Eastern

canned fruits, canned vegetables,

loads from Winnipeg, consisting of
grocers' sundries. Two car loads from
California, made up of onnned and

from Okanogan, of potatoes, onions,
cabbage, etc. One carload from Chicago ol canned cream and milk, and
one ear lond from Truro, Nova Scotia,
consisting of onnned cream and milk.

Capt Campbell, of Kaslo, had an
experience Monday evening, and one
which naturally makes him feel sore,
both in mind and body. He was
standing on the sidewalk at the comer
of Baker and Ward streets, at about
8180 in the evening, when a bicyclist
came wheeling down the sidewalk,and
without ringing his bell or giving nny
warning he pinniped square iuto Captain Campbell. The Captain wns stund-
i'lg with his back to the wheeler, and
the first intimation he had of his pros-' prov7to"anyone that  Nelson  must be
alive, very much alive, and that A.
Macdonald & Company are keeping up
with the procession.

estimating claims for ib�� loss of life
u'jiong the British-Amerioan forces
during the operations
Geo. W. Prentifi- and Wm. Waldie
have been doing assessment on the Aim
Lincoln and the American Eagle.
They finished the work Saturday.
These claims lay about six miles from
Nelson, on Eagle Creek, between the
Qranite mine and the Kootenay River.
The property is a gold-copper proposition, and samples taken from the ledges run very high.

He came   in   from  tbo   Slocan   last
night and said this to The Miner:
"Miners winked in the Slooau for
seven years in perfect harmony with
their employers, The rate of wages
was |3.fi0 for ten-hoar shifts, nnd *! a
day for board, During tbe panic of
'98, when uo doubt labor could bave
been procured for a less wage,the mine
owners did not take advantage of the
Situation, but raid the same rate right
Moim. Tbe asking of the same wages
for two hours less work has broken up
the harmony between labor and capital. It will never be restored while
tho present conditions exist. Mine
owners now working are doing so under protest, fully believing that they
are entitled to Letter treatment in a
country still young in mining. Tiny
claim that it would have been better
tii have deferred experimental legislation until the mining business in B.
O. was developed well enough to stand
any strain that agitators and ambitions politicians would  put upon it.''

Further Particular of the Snd Death of
the Young Missionary.
Mr. W. W. West, writing to Tho
Miner from Pilot Kay. gives the particulars attending the death and funeral
of Mr. J. K. Bennett, the young mis-
sinnry, which was reported in The
Miner of the 23rd inst. Mr. West says:
"I took the residents of Pilot Hay
over to the funeral in the Haly. The
funeral was largely attended, aud the
eh arch and casket was literally covered with flowers. "���
Mr. Bennett and Mr. Shaw went out
gunning from Ainsworth on Thursday,
the 22nd inst. When abont il miles
from the Highland mine they wero descending the mountain to a creek for
water, with Mr. Shaw about 200 yards
in advance. Mr. Bennett must have
slipped, holding the muzzle of the gun
in his hand, using Iho gun as a walking stick, when it went off. The report of the gnn brought Mr. Shaw bark,
where he found __.' Bennett lying
with his head down the hill and his
left arm blown entirely off. He wus
bleeding badly, aud Mr. Shaw used
his shirt for a bandage. After doing
everything in his powei for the wounded man Mr, Shaw went to tbe No, 1
mine for help. It was over two hours
before he procured assistance and returned with a oot. Mr. Bonnet by
this time had lost nearly all of his
blood, but he wns taken as quickly as
possible to Kaslo, to the hospital. It
was night when they arrived, but iu
just a few hours afterward he was
brought hank to Ainsworth a corpse,
aud laid out in his own church. The
large attendance from all points ou
the lake showed with what respect
and esteem he was held everywhere he
was known.
THE SAMOAN CLAIMS.
May Be Settled on a Basis Adopt d By
Great Britain.
Washington,   Sept.    86. --The   three
Governments    interested   in    Samoa,
Great    Britain,     Germany   and    the
United States, have   been  considering
the claims arising out of the bombardment last summer in which the American   forces under Admiral Kautz and
the British forces under Captain Ktnr-
dee participated.  As a preliminary step
the British Government has  siguilied
a pnrpi.se to   adopt   in   this   case   the
principle observed  iu the damage done
by the   bombardment   of   Alexandria,
Egypt, namely, that  private  property
destroyed   as a necessary   incident   to
prosecution of naval and military operations would be paid for.  While applying this general principle,   the adjustment of the various claims is yet to he
made according to the circumstances of
each.    The olnims are being considered
undor   the   main   heads,   viz:   Those
arising from the joint naval operations
of  the   British  and  American forces;
and  second, those  growing out of the
operations   of    the   Samoau    natives,
chiefly the followers of Mataafa.
It is understood that the British and
German authorities are agreed upon
the genoral principle that the bombardment and naval claims ahould be
reimbursed. This, however, it is assorted, imposes no obligation on Germany to slime iu meeting tbe claims
as the German forces did not participate in the bombardment,   It.  is saia
also that no proposition has beeu made
to have Germany pay a part of tho Samoau damage by tbe Mataafa forces.
The course of the United States has
not yet been fully determined, as to
claims arising from naval depredations. So far as known, all the claims
under consideration aro for property
loss, there being  no  present  basis for
hing New, Novel and
Original.
