clinrmod with .Nelson, the perfect
weather ami everything connected
with tlie day. She was overheard nt

iliil nol remark on the particular
beauty of the men, so the ladies can
imisier themselves just one ahead of
tbe members of the sterner sex.

Vancouver, 11. ('.. Sept. 13.���When
Hon. .las. Dunsmuir discharged the
Chinese employed in his mines at Union and Extension last spring.and announced his Intention of permanently
replacing them with white laborers,
in some quarters his statement regarding his future action was not considered with such degree of faith as
the occurrence and tho statement of
Mr. Dunsmuir in connectoq therewith
would warrant. Subsequent developments have proved that he was entirely conscientious in his promise and
that he has been consistent iu bis adherence to his action in removing
the Chinese from his mines it was to
give room for a class of labor that
would be more acceptable to the workingmen of the Province.
Recent communications from Scotland contain tlle advices that at
Hamilton, a town in Lanarkshire, a
large meeting was held on the 32nd
Ult., to secure thc names of those who
were willing to go to Nanaimo to
work in Ihe coal mines there. The
meeting was the result of an advertisement in the local papers of that
district, calling for '.'on experienced
men to go to liritish Columbia, and
was largely attended and enthusiastic.
Lanarkshire is tlie centre of the coal
region in Scotland, and from this
county can he obtained some of tin
best qualified and most experienced of
those who are accustomed to digging
black diamonds from the bowels of
the earth.
There was no trouble ill securing
the requisite number of workingmen,
in fact the supply was more than
equal to the demand, Agents of transportation companies wore present, to
answer tbe many questions that were
plied them by the miners, eager lo
know of the great west of whieh tbey
bad heard.and of the far away liritisli
Columbia whieh lies on the vast I'aeilic ocean. Arrangements were made
by which the men will be brought out
almost immediately, and as soon as
they arrive they will be set to work at
their wonted occupation.
These advices from Scotland arc in
a measure confirmed by the fact tbat
at, Ladysniith, a   growing   little town
in the   neighhorb 1   of   Nanaimo in
tlie Wellington coal district, about SO0
cottages are being erected under the
authority of Mr. Dunsmuir, presumably for occupation hy these miners
whom he is said to be bringing from
Scotland. Thc construction of the
resiliences has been proceeding for
some time and the cottages are now
almost completed, and awaiting the
arrival of their occupants.
Thc action of Mr.Dunsmuir induing
away with the Mongols in liis mines,
and employing only white labor Is
everywhere commended as worthy of
emulation by many other producing
concerns in the Province, lu this instance it has been impossible to obtain the experienced men necessary
for coal mining in this part of the
world, and it was compulsory for
Mr. Dunsmuir to seek somewhere else
the miners ho needed. In transplanting to this country so many additional types of the sturdy Scut, whose
thrift and industry arc known and
commended the wide world over, he
will meet with still further approval.
Now that the transaction in its entirety may be  seen   in   its full   light,
Mr. Dunsmuir's enterprise will undoubtedly receive the approbation of
all classes of the community.

barefooted, coatless. with swelled feel

the special aide to Adjutant (leneral
Scurry to investigate the conditions

which deals .d great length with the
awful conditions of affairs, the sickening scenes of death and desolation,
says: "The situation at Galveston
beggars description. Never weie there
so many sad hearts. Men hcrett of
their wives and children, women widowed, children parent less, it was
enough to touch the stoutest heart.
Although a week ago these people had
happy hoincs and are now homeless
and penniless, they bore, up bravely.
Their faces were drawn from mental

was no whimpering, no complaining.
Everything for their comfort and
welfare Is being done. Many of the
refugees bad tasted little or no food

the city is practically wrecked for all

The (loop anxiety manifested in certain local quarters to create thc impression thai all is not harmony
anion!,' the Conservatives of Nelson
plves rise to suspicions that are not of
the most pleasing character. If the
wish is not father to the thought,
it is at least in very warm sympathy
with it. Speaking for itself, The
Minor can say that It lias seen no evidence of the truth of the statement,
and tiio Liberal papers outside that
have seized upon it as a crumb of
comfort would save themselves seme
disappointment If they kept their elation within reasonable bounds.
There will he a nice.ine; o! Conserv-
ativi s tonight, to elect delegates to a
convention that is called for Saturday
next at Kevelstoke to nu nutate a candidate for Vale-Cariboo. It mayor
may not be a large one. Sober-minded people do not t,"1 In eostaoies of enthusiasm over thc appointment ofa
few delegates, and we do not expect,
therefore, that there will be 11 race
for the place of meeting tonight, in
the des're to arrive first and cheer
loudest (ind longest. Those who attend will doubtless observe tlieir customary sedateness, both In their manner of going tu the meeting and in
their conduct while engaged in carrying out tlic purpose ol It. U.iL that
there will be a representative gathering of the best elements of the party
and earnest and Intelligent attention
to the business ln hand, it will be
quite safe for all concerned, cither as
friends or opponents, to accept in ad
vance. That business is to take a preliminary step toward tbe nomination
of a candidate who will be the next
member of the Canadian Parliament
for Yale-Cariboo. All that is best
and wisest and most deliberate in tin
Conservative party of Nelson will
gladly take part in a duty of that
for the reason that [Sir Wilfrid Laur-
'er and his party have gone back on
their professions of four years ago.
and instead of having used their Influence as tbe governing power in
Canada to persuade the Home authorities to entertain thc question they
turned traitor to tlie cause and did
their utmost to strangle it by giving
preferential treatment in our markets
without raising a linger to obtain
anything in return. Without even
being asked, they made a complete
surrender of the whole ground. As a
mere example of a broken pledge or a
violated principle it differed little
from a score of others, but unfortunately this is attended with substantial loss, loss that is easily grasped
and mny be reckoned without tl i Hi -
011 Ity.
It is not surprising that there has
been a cooling off of the favor with
which the question was regarded in
(Ireat Britain. If the Mother Country
can obtain trade advantages from the
Colonies without even the asking,
why give anything in return'.' We
shall wait a long time before Australia or New Zealand follows the example set by Canada, but it is not impossible that in these times of fervent
loyalty and imperialism thc Home
statesmen may persuade themselves
that more one-sided bargains of the
kind may be showered upon them.
In this they wil be   disappointed, and
among other things Canadian electors
will be asked to do a few months
hence will be to put our own country
right on the question and help disabuse the minds of the liritish people.
We can restore the subject to the
position it occupied four years ago,
and tbat was vastly more favorable
than the Liberals, with their treason
to it, will now admit. They keep repeating that the leading men of (Ireat
Britain will not consider the matter
for a moment. Just now, in the light
of Canada's surrender, they probably
would not; but let us declare at the
polls that preferential trade is a sound
Imperial policy, and return men to
power who, instead of betraying,
will be constantly earnest in pressing it, and we shall probably discover
that there are many who will be
glad to entertain it.

There are many important public
questions in regard to which there are
differences of opinion between the
two political pintles of the country,
and during tlle pending campaign
they wi1! DO doubt ho hotly discussed
both through the press and on tlie
platform. One of these will be the
question "f Imperial preferential
trade. In some quarters this will

inie than practical, the opinion being
advanced dial while it might he considered desirable in Canada tlie people
of lho I'nited Kingdom will not even

Austin, Tex., Sept. 111.-Governor
Savers today made tbe following
Sttitomont to thc Associated Press on
,1���. Mood situation: "Conditions at
Gnlveston arc fully as bad as reported.
Communication, however, has been
reestablished between the island and
|hl. mainland and hereafter the transportation of supplies will be lessdif-
lloult, The work of clearing tbe city
|B progressing fairly well and Adjutant Scurry, under the direction of the
mayor, is' paf.'olllng the city for the
purpose of preventing depredations.
���|'|���. most eon.se vative estimate of the
m������l���.,' of deaths places il at 3,000.
Contributions from citizens of this
State and from other Stales are cora-
in.r in rapidly and liberally and it is
confidently expected thai within tlic
next leu days the work of restoration
by thc people of llalveston will have
begun in good eoi Hist and with energy and success. Of course the destruction of property has been very great
not less than ten millions of dollars
-bul il is hoped and believed that
even this great loss will be overcome
through the energy of the    people."
Iiiuing the day contributions have
fairly deluged the (Iovernor. upwards
nf Sliio.iinO having been received. Governor Savers today began receiving
reports from various points along the
Oulf Coast, whieli would indicate that
there has been great damage done to
property for Bevoral hundred miles
and that tbe list of llalveston fatalities and Buffering wil! be largely augmented.
Down  the coast from Galveston, thi
town   of   Dickinson   was   laid   waBtc
and live people killed.    The   towns of
Alvin,     Altalonia.    Texas   City,   and
Uoroksbtre are wrecked and   hundreds
are destitute.   Richmond  is so  badly
demolished thai it will  require weeks
to dear tho town,    Missouri City and
Stafford, just opposite   were   entirely
demolished   and   tne   few   remaining
people at these places   have  no homes
to diver   their l.i    I .     Hay   City,   in
.Matagorda County.i.s reported   wreck
ed witli much loss of   life   though   no
oltlial report   lias  been   made  to   the
effect,    I'.'iiton.     Rollover,    Bolivar
point,   Quintans,    Sugarland,   Belleville,   Wharton,   I'liirview,   Missouri
city, Sartarla,   Arola and El  Carapo,
arc all reported heavy sufferers,   both
in   point   of   property   destroyed   and
lives lost.    Owing to the fact that the
telegraph service   is   still    badly crippled (Iovernor Saver's   cannot   ascertain the exact number of  dead at   the
points named but it is  approximated
(tt live hundred.    Reports   which have
reached   the   Governor   show that tlie
railroad telegraph,and telephone companies have suffered enormous   losses.
The   (Iovernor    was   informed   today
that quite a number of tugs from New
Orleans  and   other   available   points
li.iil either arrived or were en route of
llalveston   and that by   Saturday   tbe
transportation problem would be solved so far as getting   people   from   the
Island to mainland was concerned.

W, U. Bellamy, M. E., arrived in
town from Nelson on Friday, says the
Kamloops Sentinel, lie leaves shortly
on a trip up the North Tbomspon River to the main falls about ISO miles
distant, where be proposes to locale
the site for a big electric power plant
to operate an electric railway between
Hint point and Kamloops. Mr. Bellamy states that his project is backed
''.v eastern capital and that there is
abundant justification for the undertaking. There are large and rich galena deposits in the vicinity of these
falls, further there are the coal fields,
and large tracts of excellent timber.
grazing, and agricultural lands, in
the development of which an electric
railway will materially assist, lie
anticipates too, that the dredging
operations, which will soon be under
way, will provide an extensive addition lo the trallie. The project, if
carried into effeot, will certainly
mean a very great deal for Kamloops,
Mr. Bellamy's efforts will be followed with the keenest interest by all of
our citizens, There is abundant evidence of the existence of great undeveloped natural resources iu the valley
"f the North Thompson, and the pro-
Posed railway should lend to their
early development��� It is well known
tliat practically incalculable motive
power can be obtained from these falls
to operate the biggest kind of an electric power plant.
