coincidence that both branches of the

strong and successful government and
the vagaries and risks of an irresponsible opposition. The general electorate here has decided that there must

A week from tonigh', the second attempt of the Nelson Amateurs to produce light opera will be offered for
public approval. The first effort,
"Pinafore," was a marked success,
and the second, "The Mikado," will
undoubtedly be much more successful
if Saturday night's full rehearsal can
be taken as a criterion. Among the
popular light operas it is doubtful if
one more easily staged than "Pinafore" or one more dielliult to stage
than "The Mikado" could be chosen.
But tbe difficulties are being overcome

tbe musical perfection of the principals and chorus. The chorus is a
strong one and the volume of sound
produced does full justice to the
The wisdom of the committee in
choosing the principals is now very
evident. Much will be expected from
those wdio took part in " Pinafore"
but there will be several who will
make their first appearance in Opera
In Nelson. (If these Mrs. Parry will
make a decided bit. Her singing will,
of entires, be II Btrong feature but her
acting will be scarcely less pleasing.
Shu has a natural grace and vivacity
on the stage that makes her quite at
home as the lending eneof the "Three
little maids." Mrs. Davys as "Katl-
sha" a character part, will be splendid. She has an excellent idea of the
part and sustains it admirably
throughout, Miss Bensusan will make
a very acceptable "Pitti Sing" although the part, is not large enough
to do her justice. Miss Johnston, as
"Peep-llo." a still smaller part, completes the "Three little maids," and
will do her little well.
As the captain in "Pinafore," Mr,
George Williamson scored a great sue
cess, but there will be few who will
be prepared for bis work as " Kofi n." He is a natural born comedian
and It is safe to say that the audiences will be kept in a constant state

out to tho bar und after Olson was
out a little while the prisoner came
into th'e room. The prisoner sat down
at the table and I told him he
was not wanted there, lie sat there
with bis right hand on his inside left
coat pocket. I asked him what ho
had his hand there for. He said he
would show me. He pulled a revolver and I reached over and grabbed
him when 1 saw what was coming.
The man before me is the man that
did tbe shooting, and he shot me.
When 1 grabbed him he tired three or
four shots, the first one hitting me
in the groin of the left leg. The
proprietor of the saloon then came in
and twisted the revolver from the
prisoner. I leallzed at once that I
was hit and tiled dreadfully. I could
] not say whether the prisoner made
| any threats during the time the sboot-
| ing was going on. 1 have known the
prisoner there or four weeks, and as
far as I know wo were tbe best of
friends. 1 gave him money at different times so that he could   use   it  for
gambling purposes; some of  which
he gave back.    1   do not   know   what
made him do the shooting."
Howard was perfectly sober this
morning and asked anxiously as to
the condition of Muller. lie would
make no statement as to the shooti.ig
but declared that he and Mnller were
always the best of friends.
Chicago, Ills., Oct. 8.���The Tribune
Bays:    The prosecuting   authorities of
tills county last   night  laid   hands on
what they regard as one   of   the most
startling crimes of   the country's history.    Charges of   conspiracy, back of
which are  allied insinuations of murder, are   lodged   against   three   men,
two of   whom are already in custody.
These men will   have to   answer  the
allegations   of n carefully laid plot to
swindle   an   insurance  society, a plot
which it is said, progressed with   tbe
growth   of   a   yeai    into   the   actual
death   by poison, it is thought, of the
insured person. According to the theory  on   which   the   prosecution   will
proceed,   the   deail   person,   a   young
woman of Chicago, was original}' one
of the quartette of  conspirators.    She
had expected that the death was to be
feigned and that   another   dead   body
was   to play the   passive   role   of   her
corpse;   instead   of   that, real   death
came to her.    The person whose death
ailds a new phase to   what   otherwise
would   have   been a simple  insurance
swindle,    was   Marie   Defenbacb,    88
years old, and tbe two persons arrested   upon   bench   warrants   isfcued   by
Judge   Gibbons   ore   Dr.   August   M.
Linger and Frank II. Smiley.   A third
person, for whom a warrant has been
issued, is not   yet under   arrest.    The
alleged conspiracy   has   been   investigated with searching care   by   a   private detective agency, by tlie Chicago
City   Attorney and   detectives of   one
of tbe insurance companies and by the
state attorney   himself.    Yesterday it
was decided   to cause   the   Immediate
arrest of tlie suspects.
Last April Miss Defenbacb applied
to a New York Insurance Company
for a $111,(1110 policy. This was refused, but luter one of g.'i.OOO wan taken
out. On or about August lutli last,
she also seeui'od in a Canadian order
the amount of $5,111111. At the same
date she took out a policy in an American benefit order for $'-',1)110. Two
weeks afterwards she was dead, leaving a will which directed that part of

Washington, Oct. 8.���An interesting
picture of the Transvaal and the Orange Free State in August after the
wave of win had passed over the
country is given in a report to the
State Department from I'nited States
Consul Stowe at Cape Town, dated
AugUBt II last. He had returned to
the Cape from a trip through the two
Republics, lle says that for hundreds
of miles all the wile fencing is down

former years.and there will be a large
market for American cereals. By
March, 1901, agricultural machinery
will be wanted. Men' and live stock

Johannesburg had only three days'
supply of meats when Mr. Stowe left
town. While the* Hoers who returned
are anxious to get to work, several
months must elapse before things settle down to a norma] basis. The I lovernment is building a new line of
railroad from Harrismith to connect

terms of the decree is to be tried by

foregoing corroborates the offioial advices received last week from Director
General Sheng by Mr. Wu, the Chinese minister at Washington, and by
the latter communicated to the department of state.

The Lancashire mills are suffering
because of a cotton famine. The visible supply is far Bhort of the requirements. It is expected of course that
there will be serious loss to mill owners and operatives in consequence of
this condition. Discussing the matter
in The London Times, n correspondent refers to the great famine at the
time of the American war, when the
folly of depending on foreign countries was made so apparent. "Why, "
he asks, witli some Impatience, "do
our Colonies not benefit by the lesson'.' We should be independent of
anyone country for orr supplies.'
The meaning of this is that the Colo
nies sbouldtake up a new and strange
agricultural industry in order that an
linpoitant manufacturing industry in
tbe Mother Country should not suffer
loss. What encouragement have the
Colonies ever received to do this? It
would be worth a good deal to the
cotton mills of Great Britain to be
assured of a plentiful and regular supply of the raw material, but if anyone
should suggest that a price be paid
for it, these very millmen would be
the first to raise their hands in a
sort of shocked protest.
If (treat Britain is anxious that
those Colonies suitable to the industry hould engage more extensively in
the cultivation of cotton, or ramie,
which is superior to cotton, let that
nation do as any other wide awake
nation would and give the Colonies
the encouragement of a tariff preference. The letter of this conespondent
raises in practical manner the whole
question of preferential trade within
tbe Empire. We are told that (Ireat
Britain will never listen to the offer
of reciprocal preferential trade. She
will gladly accept all the preferences
the Colonies may extend to her; but
she will give no preference in return,
for the reason that to do so would involve laying violent hands on the national fetich, free trade. That, aa
The London Times itself declared,
appropos of somethng else, is "an
impossible condition."
It should not be impossible, and it
is certainly not unreasonable. The
Colonies aie aa much a portion of the
Empire as the Mother Country, and
they desire to remain a portion. Together they are members of one family, living under one flag, and acknowledging oue and tho same sovereignty. Their domestic legislation
concerns no one but themeslves, and
they are privileged to make it whatever will best conduce to their own interest. (Ireat Britain is the greatest
consuming market in the world. No
one can dispute that if the membeiB
of her own family were given a preference in that market, the outlying
portions of the Empire would develop
enormously and British power and
prestige would be strengthened accordingly. A small tax ou foodstuffs
would help Canada and the Australian
Commonwealth; a small tax on cotton
wo d encourage sonic struggling Colony tbnt is now more a source of
weakness than of strength, and enable
It to develop a resource that would
make it both prosperous and powerful.
What Is legislation for but to help
our own and ourselves? With the
adoption of preferential trade the
Lancashire mills, not depending on
foreign supplies, would soon be assured of permanent operation. That
is the policy a strong and Influential
party In Groat Britain is now advocating. It is the policy of tlie (ana
dian Conservative party, and in the
end It is the policy that will win. It
will win because it Is the policy of
common sense and self-interest.
Canadian electors can speed its coining
by declaring for it in the approaching
hindered their adhesion in 1898 was
the fact that their own postal rate
inland was twopence, and therefore it
would be impossible to charge one
penny to England. It will involve a
large sacrifice of revenue to Hiaugur-
ite penny postage throughout Australia on January 1 next, but tlie Press
and several of the Governments are
prepared to make the saerillce, and
the spirited action of   the   Hon. J. (1.
Ward,   Postmaster-General   of   New
Zealand, in establishing universal
penny postage has forced the hands of
liis neighbors.
Mr. llenniker Heatou has received
the following cable message from Mr.
Seddon, Prime Minister of New Zealand: 'Wellington, Monday.���I am
much gratified to be able to give
effect to our penny postage legislation
with tbe people of the home country.
Oui people rejoice with yours. Am
pleased our satisfactory Budget, lias
given satisfaction in England. We
have since had further positive proof
iu New Zealand of continued prosperity.' "
Among our people on the other side
of the world Mr. llenniker Beaton
figures largely in connection with
penny postage schemes. In Canada
the man who devoted his life to this
reform has to give place to Mr. Wm.
Muloch, who coolly appropriates all
the credit.
Books You May Need
A theory of the British constitution
is that Parliament shall always enjoy
the confidence of the people, therefore
it is that it may be dissolved at any
time. The New York Times, one of
tho ablest and best of American newspapers, is disposed to regard this principle as "enlightened and liberal";
but it is open to criticism "from the
fact that the time of appeal is entirely
at the pleasure of the Ministry, which
is thus enabled to employ certain
methods to turn the popular vote to
its favor." The objection is well
taken. We who live under the British
system of government would not care
to have the principle changed; but
there is a tendency to evil in its practice,and it may grow into a grievance
that will demand a drastic remedy

director of the Canadian Gold Fields
Company whiaii is developing the
property, and who Is in Nelson today,
received this news by wire at noon
today, Mr, Drewry visited the property on Friday and it was known then
that a rich body of ore was in sifjlit
but it was not uncovered until ihis
morning. The vein is over two feet
wide anil has been traced over son
feet. The copmany will now run a
tunnel from tbe Whitewater claim
and tap the new vein  at   the   340-foot
��� *   ���
The Puritan mineral claim on Lemon Creek, now stands among the richest claims of that section. A sample
of ore taken from the main lead on
the property was brought to Nelson
on Saturday and the assay returns
Hhow as high as S-'T in gold per ton.
The lowest returns obtained were 813.
Although this claim was located some
time ago it was re-located early last
spring and development work has
been carried ou since that time. A
sliaft has been sunk a considerable
distance. The property is owned by
John Itlelly, I). S. Hardy and Ivan
Warren, all of Nelson. The work
upon the property has been stopped
for the winter season but will be resumed early next spring.
��� ���   ���
W. 11. Wall, superintendent of the
bridge department of the Canadian
I'aeilie, who returned to Nelson from

brought news of a rich strike on the
Ottawa mineral claim situated on

doing development work last Friday,
a large lead exceedingly rich with
native silver was encountered. The
claim as located in 1898 but very little development work was done until
this season. The claim is owned by
Thomas Mulvey anil C. Fielding, of
Slocan City. They intend running a
level along the lead which has just

The highest assay of gold ore that
has ever been made in the citv was
made by Fassett of the exposition ore
from the Bill Nye mine in Jackson
County. Oregon, says the Spokane
Chronicle. The ore assayed 807,116.52
to the ton. While this is from a picked sample, and docs not in any manner determine the value of the ore
body, as such values could not be
found in any quantities, yet as a feature it is interesting to show the
amount of free gold rock can con tain.

Tl e returns from the Granite and
Queen Hess mines for the month of

Woakes of the Duncan Mings Company, this morning. At the Granite

thought he had been unfairly treated.
Rumoher says: "Durnan, my partner,
who is now in Canada, and myself,
will row any two men in the world
for any amount. I think Ten Eyck is
going to turn professional and should
he do so Durnan nnd 1 will row him

the world's championship."
London, Oct. s.���Sir Thomas Lip ton
in the course of an interview that appears in The Daily Express this morning denies any attempt to corner pork
in Chicago, lle says: "I have never
yet tried to corner food. On the contrary my object has always been to
lower rather than to raise food prices.
What happened was simply this. I
received a large government order,
compelling me to keep a big stock in
reserve. My buyers in Chicago bought
extensively nnd consequently I hold n
rather bigger stock than usual. It is
legitimate business to execute my eon-
tracts and the execution will not
affect the American public at all. I
object, to corners on principle."
