COIM B. G. CLUTE
The First Evidence Taken in
Sandon Yesterday.
UNION MAN'S EVIDENCE
Could FotC!oiifi:m Statements of Secretary
of Miners' Union���Percentage of
Work an I Output.
Sandon, Deo. 6. ���(Speoial to Tlm
Miner).���Mr, R. C. Clute, the speoial
commissioner appointed to enquire into the operation of thn Alien Labor
Law in the Kootenays, openeil Court
here today, A great deal of interest
was man.rested   in   tho proceedings,
nd perhaps three-fifths of the kickers
present were themselvos uliens���not
Italians or Chinamen, hut aliens all
the sanio.
Mr. Clute explained his mission,,
which was to see lhat no breach of lhe
Alien Latior Law v, as chargeable
against this partionlar district.
The first witness put on the stand
wns Angus Macdonald, a prominent
member of the local Miner's Union,
and a man who got into trouble in Se
tittle for posting bills of the labor union.
Mr. Ulote explained thai the Alien
Labor Law was only operative against
countries having similar enactments
as applied to Canada, and the United
States was one of these. Macdonald
testified that he only knew of five or
six aliens being imported to work in
the Slocan mines. Two of these wete
Italians, two Swedes and the others he
did not know of what nationality.
Ilo Knew of one American citizen employed, Mr. Clute wanted to know
how many men were employed in the
mines.
The witness said he thought between
500 and (i00, but ho could not say
how many of theso wero British subjects or how many had tbeir families
here.
Mr. Clute remarked th.it the Seere
tiny of tho Miners' Union had telegraphed Mr. Laurier that 1,000 British
subjects with their wives and fami
lies weio being driven out of Slocan
bv reason of the importation of alien
labor.
The witness was not able to confirm
this statement.
Mr. Clute asked what per centage of
the workmen cr.nld do ns much in
eight hours as in ten hoars, the old
working dav.
The witness avowed that he could
do as much in eight hours as he would
in ten hours, but he would not sny that
���was the general inle with the ordinary, everyday minor. lie only spoke
for himself.
Mr. Olute said he considered this a
most important matter and that he
would expect further evideuco on the
point.
The Commissioner also asked the
witness what would the output of a
mine worked under Hi" ten-hour sys-
tf m be as compared with one on the
light-hour system, but the witness
could not enlighten bin. on this point
either, though Mr. Cluto evidently
thought this had an Important hearing
on the matter.
ada, who are effected by the new cus
turn's regulations which call for a duty
on the commissions, as well as on the
invoico price of goods purchased from
England and foroiRu firms, have d*cid-
ed to protest to the Qovernment
against the new ruling. Th�� trade
claims that the regulations are, only an
interpretation of the act which the
Qovernment never intended, and consequently cannot be enforced, as it is
not a Government measure.
HUMAN FIENDS AT WORK,
Arson, Rape nun Attempted Murder
at Bowinauville.
Bowmanville, Om., Dec. tl.���The
most diabolical act over perpetrated in
this part of Canada and just marie
known, was enacted last Sunday night,
at the farm residence of J. Frank Osborne, near the town line, While Osborne and wife wore at church the
home was entered by four masked men
who forced the servant and children
upstairs, after which the culprits destroyed everthing they could lay hands
on, then mixed Paris Green in the
flour and everything of an eatable nature. An entrance was made to the
kitchen where straw, old paper, etc.,
was set on fire, the object evidently
beinH' to burn the houso and its occupants.
The fire was discovered, however, in
time to save the building. Suspicion
based on the evidence rests on a certain young man as one of the culprits,
aud a warrant has been issued for bis
arrest. Tho whole neighborhood is up
in arms ovor the affair.

THE LAST HOPE.
Monteral, Dec. (I.���Justico Wiirt-lo
this morning quashed the application
for appeal in Weir, the Ville Marie
Banque case. Counsel for the defence,
however, have taken advantage of
a clause in lhe criminal code
to ask thu right to appeal to
tlio Minister of Justice to grant a new
trial. If this apollpation lie denied,
sentence will be pronounced this after-
nooii.
Modder River dispatches say that
the Boers are encamped amid the
bills, half way to Kimberley, but it is
also added that a large body ot the enemy has gone in the diiection of Ja-
cobsi'riil. It is possible, therefore,
that Lord Methuen may endeavor to
deal his right flank as far as Jacobs-
dal before continuing bis advance. He
is still waiting at Modder River for
guns and ammunition.
The smtie from Kimberley ou Nov.
2.T appears to have been much more
serious than had been supposed. Details aro now arriving ot a reconnaissance in force by mounted Iroops under Colonel Scott-Turner at dawn in
the direction of a ridge near. Carlos
farm, where the Boors were strongly
entrench!d. Finding the Boer pickets
asleep, Major Scott-Turner proceeded
alone the ridge under cover, and rushed the Boer redoubts at 5:25 a. in., iu
the face of n hail of bullets. The
Boers hoisted a whito flag and tired at
the British under its protection before
surrendering. Owing possibly to the
i exhaustion of their ammunition, the
British wero unable to follow up the
attack and seize a large Boer lunger
about three hundred yards ahead, especially ns Boer re-iiiforccments were
seen approaching and the enemy wns
keeping up a heavy lire from the shelter of the thick bush.
During the sortie an iirmoied train
reconnoitered north und smith, while
n considerable force of Britisli, with
Held guns and .Maxims, advanced to-

to perform consular duties there. Permission for Macruni to leave has already been given. The department
came to the conclusion that his fre-

President oi tho Baltimore & Ohio
and representing as ohalrman hh other
roads, having 80,000 miles of line,
made the opening argument. He said
that the present withdrawal of the
171,000 unequipped cars would practically paralyze inier-state oommjree.
He did not believe it an exaggeration
to say that no ono road bad enough

SOMETHING NEW.
A now political platform has been
promulgated.    Hero it is:
1. The improvement of our educational system, by",tha establishing of
night shcools, for technical education
of miners, and Normal schools for the
r'raining of toacheis.
2. The construction ami improvement of roads aud trails within the
Province by Government aid.
:i. The passing of such laws as will
protect the workin,? classes and at the
same time conserve the rights of capital; and the appointment of a board of
arhirrators to settle disputes between
employe aud employer, and remove existing friction.
-I. The subsidizing of lines of communication wi*hin the Proivnce, by-
rail and water, so as to render better
facilities to the farmer, the lumberman, the miner   and   the fisherman.
6, The improvement of the administration of justice ill the outlying sections, and the extern ion of the powers
of municipalities under Government
supervision.
ii. The enaotment of stringent regulations in regard to Orieutnl labor in
our midst.
7. The increase of the number of the
members of the Government by two
without 11 portfolio, thereby safeguarding the various interests of the country,
s. The improvement of the laws relating to the management of mines
and crown lands.
9. The appointment of 11 Government
inspector of oompauios registered with -
in the Province, thereby safeguarding
tbe interests of investors.
This appears in The Vancouver
World, and is contributed by an anony.
minis correspondent. In his letter ho
says: "The Government is virtually
Without a lender; tho Opposition bone
for ono: the Conservatives advertise
for one, and Hon. Joseph Martin is
lending a doubtful following." The
situation may be as mixed and muddled as the writer implies, but there is
nothing more remarkable in auy of
tbe conditions named than the expecta
tion that a new party would form itself around n leader who conceals his
identity under a nom tie plume and
who foimulatei a platform for which
110 one appears to stand sponsor. It is
like providing a well hy first getting
the hole and then building around   it.
We believe Mr. Houston's paper is
entirely wrong in saying that there is
hostility to tho electric light system,
and wrong beyond all doubt when it
says it is owing to personal hatred
of the men who unloaded it upon the
City. There is personal distrust,
which is natural, Tbe man who
seeks the position of Mayor for the
salary attached to it, and who takes advantage of that position to dispose of 11
rickety and inefficient light system ai
an exorbitant advance on its real
value, is 0110 whom it is safe to dis
trust.

Everywhere throughout Sontberu
British Columbia bitter complaint is
niiiilo of the mail sorvice. From a
Boundary Greek exchange wo gather
that merchants out that way aro disappointed in the accommodation furnished by the extension of the O. P. R,
It is said that thero are confusion and
delay in handling freight, and these
are doubtless very annoying. But in

capacity in more than taxed to itH utmost by the extraordinary development
of that country. That excuse cannot
bo mado to sorvo in the caso of the
mails. Tho commoroial needs of a district may outrun tho railway facilities
nn'ossary to supply them, bnt an
alert and efflolent Poet-OHioe Department Hbould have no trouble iu keeping pace with development, From
Fort Steolo comes the following; "On
the Crow's Kest lino thoro is neither
mail oar nor mail stork ; the mails are
Hindi) np at Nelson and Medicine Hat,
aud sent by express to the different
Post-Offices along the line All ol
theso have u daily mail, while Fort
Steele must be contont with a fri-
weekly service." The Crow's Nest
bus boon nearly a year in operation; it
is the meuns of mail communication
between the Kootenays and tlio East,
yet in all tbe distance from Nelson to
Medicine Hat thero is not a mail car
or a mail clerk. An instruction from
the Department at Ottawa could remedy this in a week, but nothing is dono.
In other sections and directions the
failure of tho service differs from this
only in the character of it; the public
annoyance and inconvenience arc quite
as gro.it. It is useless to ask bow long
this is to endure, for no one at Ottawa
thinks it worth while oven to listen.

THE
MINST0*
ENJOYABLE    EVEK1HG   AFI'OhDED
BY THE LOCAL TROUPE.
Good Siripng, Costumes and Dimcee, Keep
a Lnrge Audience Thoroughly
Well Amused.
A t^owl show always draws well in
Nolson, nui doubly so when the good
show is likewise a local one, aud tho
Nolson Minstrels performance lust
night wns nn exception. It was always oxpeoted that there would bo n
goorl nuilieiico, but Mr. Charles Prosser
nud his confreres who have worked bo
hard to 11111K0 the entertainment a success must liiivo beon agreeably surprised as tlio Opera House gradually
became more and more crowded, a
lawe number of tho fair sex being
present. The various performers lnni
nvirlentlv taken great pains with their
parts, t!;h 1 r costumes and ilisgnisis
woro excellent, as were the part sinking ami solos.
yteinor's orchestra played tlm curtain raiser, tho p ifuriiiiiiico proper beginning with "Down the Ohio," n
chorus in which the whole company
joined. This np��niug chorus settled
a,iy doubts that might have remained
ns to tho success of the evening, by
eliciting a well deserved anil enthusiastic encore. Mr. B. N. Thompson
followed with a song, nnd then 11 r.
Hnrrv Marshall got an encore fnr the
"Bag Time Hymn." Mr. Harry Gor-
vmi sang, "My Honolulu Queen."
most acceptably, and was followed bj
Mr. Charles A. Prosser, with "Sing
Again That Sweet Refrain." Mr
Pressor's tuneful tenor was appropriately rewarded by an encore. Then
followed smgs by Messrs. A. Edmonds,
W. ,1. Caldwell. B, McGinn, and T.
G. Nelson, tspice forbids adequate
mention save that they were all good,
McGinn's "I'll Mako Dat Blaok Gal
Mine." being perhaps the best. At
any rate the audienoe thought so, for
they awarded him au encore, though
to tell the truth, had tho length of the
programme permitted, practically all
t Iib pieces would havo been oucorod.
Tho lirst part of the programme closed
with a very line chorus by the company, "Dors Gwine to   be a Jubilee."
Stfliner's Orchestra opened the second act with Fassett's "New York
bj Night." Tho company in "Professor Kastus Swiper's Oooiitown Band"
evoked roars of laughter and an encore, ah honor also awarded ton quartette by those old favorites Messrs
Thompson, Purser, Bardie and Cald
well, "Echoes from the Cornfield."
The sann jig cleverly executed by Mr.
,1. White, also produced a well de
served reonll. Tho programme closed
with a "Ragtime Quadrille" and
"Cake Walk," performed with energy,
dexterity and, on Hie part of tho ladies, with grace and tho audience did
hot stioni to decisively single out the
lest coimle. Those participating in
this turn were Miss Parker, Mr. ,T.
White, Miss T. Warren, Mr Harry
Gervnii, Miss J. Hawkins, Mr. Ed.
McGinn, Miss Prosser and Mr. Fred
Lynch.
The entire performance wns voted a
huge success by the largo numbers who
witnessed it, and tho mimic aud fun
loving community of Nelson is unanimous in hoping tbat it will not be
long beforo the Nolson Minstrels givo
another such exhibition of their talents. A word of praise to Heir Stein-
er's Orchestra !s specially flue. Their
playing   was above criticism.

Mr. P. A. Russell, of the Russell &
Hardy Hardware Company, of Greenwood and Phoenix, is in tbo City.
Mr. Russell recently visited the
Brandon & Golden Crown, in which
he is interested. He reports that there |;__
is ore in this miuo in a dozen places.
Un the 100-foot level the ore body
has been drifted ou for a distance of
310 feet aud it averages about five
feet in width. A snaft extends down
to the 300-foot level and on this level
a crosscut has been run if distance of
���,'no feet and will bave to he extended
from 100 to 150 feet further before it
will intersect the 50-foot ledge that
has been tapped on the ,'10-foot level of
the Winnipeg, and whi?h extends into
the ground of the Brandon & Golden
Crown. Prom the 100-foot level about
1,500 tons of ore has been extracted
aud ii now lying in the dump ready
to be sent to the smelter which it will
be as soon as the sour from the main
line of the railway is extended to the
mine. This will be completed in a
short time. The ore in the dump, it is
thought, will run about $110 to the
ton. The mine has been well opened
up by about 1,200 feet of shafts and
tunuels, and is iu good condition, Mr.
Russell left last evening for Brandou,
where he will spend the forthcoming

It is understood that the new lead
smelter at Trail will be blown io in a

George Connick, who has charge of
the development work on R 15.
Brown's claims on the West Fork is in
the city and reports active development
on these properties. A blacksmith
shop and other necessary buildings
have been erected nnd twelve men are
ut work. Mr. Connick reports a re-
ceut rich strike on tlie Washington.
The lead runs north and south, aud
near where tbe shaft has been sunk,
three remarkable ore chutes have been
disclosed within a few feet of each
other, one twelve, another eight, and
the othei. one and one-half feet wide,
of pyrrhotite and lead ore. At the
present depth the shaft is running into copper. It is the intention to sink
the shaft to 100 feet and theu crosscut. Systematic prospecting is bouig
carried on ou the Templar and the
Rambler which are southern extensions
of the Washington.
Mr. Connick rcpoits the Carmine is
looking splendid and rejeutly a rich
strike was made. Eight men are at
work on this property and the prospects are so tood that the bond will in
all probability he lifted.
Three men are at work on the Sullie
running a tunnel on the lead. This
property is three-quarters of a mile
west of the Washington aud with the
same character of oie.
Work is still in progress on the Government wagon road which is now
about three miles beyond tho Fork. .
One of the biggest strikes in this
country has been made two miles from
Camp McKinney above White'B Bar
between the forks of Rock Creek. The
strike was made ou the Dayton Mineral claim, assays giving JW10 in gold,
five ounces in silver and one por cent
in copper having beon made. It. is
claimed by the man who made the
strike that he uncovered ten feet of tho
lead. The ore is iron oxide and full of
free gold. The ownors are Hamilton
and 'Sounkin and Hugh Cameron,
Cimip McKinney, and H. J. McQcaid.
Greenwood The news of this strike
has created considerable excitement.
The claim is evidently the source of
the placer gold of Rook Creek, which
eanswd such a rush in the early sixties.
It is two miles from Camp McKinney.
Z Owing to the several strikes of big
ore bodies in the Deadwood Camp
there has heen considerable activity in
milling properties thero during the
past week. The Ah There has been
bonded by Pat Hickey, Slocan, to
George D. Leyson, of Greenwood. The
Sidney M. Johnson, which adjoins the
Ah There has been sold to Gcorge,D.
Leyson by D. Mortimer of the Bealy
Investment Co. The Dnrango has
beou sold by James Patterson to John
Lind, of Anaconda. This is a small
claim iu the direction of the Buck-
horn. Tho Ah There, Greyhound and
the Sidney M. Johnson join, and are
supposed to have.the mmm lead.

Naw York, Dec. 6.���The tmifl of the
|market for Industrial securities showed a decided contrast today to that for
railroad securities. Tho break in
prices in industrials approached demoralization by the middle period of
tho afternoon, Meantime tlio railroad
stocks, almost without exception, held
tenaoionsly to their prices. Later in
the day when the boars liogan to have
less success in forcing liquidation by
nutting down prices they commenced
to cover their short contracts and
wrought some very marked recoveries
iu the industrial list. At the same
time tho railtDiids wliich hnvo been
almost stapunut, displayed some signs
of animation and ros.3 generally above
yesterday's level.
Net gains in a few railroads reached a point. The lute recovery in
stocks coincided with an easing in the
cull money rate to three per cent, after ruling at seven to two per cent,
during the earlier portions of the day.
Tlio banks were calling tolls and the
movement of the industrials suggested
that they had commenced to cover
their short confronts.

The rumors that Oauadinu capital
was nliont to take over the ociitrnl of
the Lone Pine-Surprise mine in Ke-
imlilic liuro boen set at rest, says the
Spokesman-Review. The Spokane
Company will retain the mine anil
work it for all it is worth. Yesterday
at the annual meeting the stockholders
subscribed for 100,0011 shares of the
treasury stook at 20 cents u share,
which will provide n development fund
of *'.'('. 000.
"This fund will lio used in mining
the group on a lnrge icale," said President Patrick Clark last evening.
"While the details are yet to be decided upon, 1 may sny that the company
will install a compressor plant, and as
soon as that is done a main working
shaft will be sunk. This will probably be a tliroe-compartment abaft. It
will be sunk at a point where tlie
whole property oan bo conveniently
and economically worked   through   it.
"Thero are, as you know, three
mills being orecled in Republic. When
those are running, tbo question ns tu
