Tuesday, September 25 has been bulletined through tho United Kingdom
as the date for the dissolution of parliament,
The date doslgnuted allows tho
shortest possible marlgn for nominations and elections. No nomination
can be made after tho last day of September and the elections will lie Mulshed by October IB, Politics is as
rapid here as It is slow In  America.
The Liberals have not made up
their list of candidates and as there
will not be time tor completing them
an unusually largo number of
boroughs and districts will be uncontested, the Unionists going in without ti struglge. Another Btrlking
proof has been offered that with the
sanction of tho queen public attention
will be centered during the elections
upon imperial interests.
The Colonial Office has announced
thai the Duke and Duchess of York
will visit the south seas in the Bpring
to open the first parliament of United
Australia, This visit is explained as
11 mark of the Royal recognition of
tho loyalty of the colonics^n the battle for the preservation of the Empire.
Lord Salisbury receives credit for ree-
ommdlng this royal journey but without doubt Mr. Chamberlain has inspired the policy as he has also proposed a muster in London of representative colonial volunteers, beaded
by Canada, for a review by the queen,
It is possible that the new parliament when elected may have something more than formal work to do in
the meeting in the autumn, but it is
difficult to credit the current reports
that the Chinese question will require
legislative action in November. The
Foreign Office, in announcing that
Prince Ching and Earl Li a re fully authorised by the emperor to negotiate
with the Powers virtually takes the
whole subject out of current politics
for many months. During this long
interval public interest in the east at
least In England will gradually suh-
The appoach of the elections, how-
ever.has invested Lord Roberts1 bulletins with much of their old fascination for the public, General Mncdon-
ald's success in driving bandsof guer-
rilas across the Vet is the principal
incident recorded In the last twenty-
four hours and it is hailed as a brilliant exploit. The last stage of the
war contains, however, little that is
heroic on either side. The Hoers have
lost heart and have ceased to display
any of their characteristic qualities
and the Hritish battalions and squadrons are mainly hunting down train
wreckers and capturing cattle and
abandoned stores.
London, Sept. SO.���The War Office
lias issued a lengthy report from Lord
Huberts on the subject of the Johannesburg plot to overthrow the garrison and murder the liritisli officers
and of tlie deportation of the foreigners. After reiterating the known
facts of the plot the Hritish com-
niander-iu-ebief in South Africa says:
"Consuls of America. Germany,
France and Sweden, subjects of which
nations were arrested, met and fully
discussed the ease with officials, The
interview was most satisfactory. The
Consuls entirely concurred with the
Hritish action and promised every assistance. ' Lord Roberts adds that lie
forthwith ordered the deportation of
all foreigners arrested in connection
with the plot for whose behavior their
respective Consuls could not vouch.
Otherwise very few foreigners were
deported, except employees of the
Netherlands Railroad who refused t,,
work for the Hritish and actively participated in the war.
Seattle,Wash.. Sept. SO.���The treasure   steamer   ('.    II.    Hamilton   fr	
Dawson to St. Michael with 150 passengers and (500,000 in dust, which
was driven on the Yukon Hats September (tth, (luring a heavy storm, made
St. Miohaels safely, according to the
steamer St. Paul. The latter also
brought news of terrible havoc
Wrought at Nome by the recent storm.
Seven or eight schooners were driven
ashore. Many tents and buildings
on the beach . were entirely swept
away,  and three men   drowned.    The

Lord Roberts Reports Nothing
Left of It but Marauding Bands.
This  Morning   Finds   More
Mines in a Crippled
Philadelphia,   Sept.   SO.���According
to advices from lla/elton the strikers
are gaining Home ground in that region, although the operators dispute
this and insist that more men are at
work today than there were yesterday.
A few more men are reported idle iu
the Shamokin district and the story
scut here last night that the strikers
at the Morea colliery, of the Heading
Company, in the Sclinylkil district,
had voted to return to work, was proven to be untrue. Hungarians attacked a mine boss on his way to work
near Shamokin this morning, and
beat him nearly to death with clubs.
Other cases of violence of this sort,
though not so serious, are reported.
The strikers at last succeeded in Inducing some of the workers in the only mine operating in the upper region,
that of the West End Company at Mo-
cana<|ua. to quit work and that colliery is crippled today.
llazelton. Pa..Sept. 20.���Reports received at strike headquarters and elsewhere from various parts of lla/elton
region this morning brought nothing
but good newsjjto the idle anthracite
coal miners. The lirst information
brought here told of a break among
the employes in the Latimer mines,
the first that has taken place there
during the strike.
The colliery was considered an invulnerable spot and the break there
put the strikers in a good humor. The
number of men who quit was quite
small, but the union men are satisfied
that they will make further inroads
in the force there. The next good
news received by the strikers came
from Coloralne and was to the effect
that the colliery there was shut down
last night. The Mcodo strikers
have been trying for four days to
close this place. The Evans colliery
at Heaver Meadow, also failed to start
work this morning because of lack of
men. A few more men went to work
iu the mines at Mcado today than
worked yesterday. The mines at Eck-
ley and Sandy Hun are in full operation this  morning as uusal.
Scranton. Pa., Sept. 20.��� Two important conferences connected with
the strike of the anthracite miners of
the Lackawanna ami Wyoming Valleys were features marking the fourth
day of the strike in this region, Due
of these brought together the heads of
three big companies,the Lackawanna.
the Deleware & Hudson and the Pennsylvania Coal Company, and many individual operators for the final  isid-
eration of plans to force the working
of some of the mines at least. It is
announced that the various superintendents arc not ready to centralize
men at certain collieries and operate
them under the protection of the law.
For this emergency they have bad
some hundreds of men made deputy
Sheriffs and watchmen. The other
meeting of the day was that of the
district executive board at strikers
headquarters to deal with the effort of
the big companies to make a working
stand, all the features of which they
arc informed of, and they say they
will be prepared to off set it.
Victoria. H. C, Sept. SO.���Capt, A.
A. Sears, a widl known C.   I'. N, master,   and   M'ss   Carrie   Phillips,   only
daughter of ex-Alderman  Joseph  E.

cables from .Nelsprnit.on the Pretoria-
Dolagoa Hay Railway not far from
Komatlpoort, the frontier station, under date of Wednesday, Sept. HI, as
follows: "Of three thousand Hoers
who retreated from Komatlpoort before the Hritish advance from Madia-
dodorp, seven hundred have entered
Portuguese territory, others have deserted in various dirctions and the
balance arc reported to have crossed
the Koniali River,and to be occupying
the spurs of Lcbombo Mountain.south

seems to have occurred when they recognized the hopelessness of their
cause. Their Long Toms and Held

Liberal   Nominee   Looking   After the
Hon udary   Supporters,
Greenwood, Sept. SO.���Mr. W. A.
Qalllhor, Liberal nominee for Yale-
Cariboo, arrived in Greenwood Tuesday night from Nelson. He was met
by Mayor Hardy and other prominent
Liberals resident in this city, and organization matters were Informally
discussed. Mr, tialliber will today-
visit Phoenix, where there are several
active workers in the Liberal interests, and later will proceed to Columbia & Grand Forks to get election
matters in good shape in those towns.
This is Mr. Qalllher's first visit to
Greenwood, and he is favorably impressed with the many evidences of
substantial progress that ho sees here.

losses of the South Afrieau campaign
and compares them with those sustained by the forces engaged in the
Franco-German and other recent great
His analysis is of more than passing
interest, and shows that the Boer war
has been proportionately to the number engaged Infinitely more deadly
than the campaign of ISTil-71.
The mean strength of the Hritish
army in South Alfred, including ail
forces, whether Imperial, colonial or
volunteers, is taken at 5,208 officers,
and 188,000 men. Official figures are
available concerning the fortunes of
25,IW0 and 803,800 men taking part in
the Franco-German war.

leading to this will be taken.

following motion passed unanimously :
"Resolved, that this mass meeting

favor of independent political action
on the part of labor and labor sympathisers of Yale-Cariboo."
After several addresses the motion
was placed before the meeting and
carried without one dissenting vote.
On Tuesday labor leaders of other
portions of the district were communicated witli and it has since lieen decided to call a nominating convention

likely that Nelson will be selected as

Although the list is a long one.Liberal candidates will have to reckon
witli the people in regard to each one
of the broken promises and violated
principles of their leaders in the
present and past Parliaments. One
of those principles on which great
stress was laid was that members
should not accept oHice from the Government, lining the unbroken
eighteen years of Conservative rule seventeen members of Pai��iment had been
appointed to office. The Liberal leaders declared that such a practice was
a subversion of the independence of
Parliament, Mr. Mulock, now Postmaster-General, felt so Strongly on the
subject that he Introduced a measure
designed to prohibit it. Iu tlie course

"If the Government of the day can
dangle public offices before their followers, and induce a few, aud perhaps an incieasing number, to aspire
to these positions instead of representing their constituents heie, and exercising an unbiased judgment and a
wholesome Influence upon the Administration of tile day, they become mere
parasites upon the Administration,
and cease to voice the opinion of their
constituents. Not only do they do
that, but, moving about among their
colleagues, they become, as it were,
corrupting agencies within their own
ranks. So it nas licomc. in my opinion, a crying evil, and I'ar'ianoent is
cast down from its high pos:tion. "
Mr. Mulock was then In Opposition,
and as liis Hill was an arraignment
of the Government it was not Buffered
to pass. Hut its introduction was intended to g! ve emphasis to tlie earnestness of the Liberal! in the desire
to further secure the indpendenee of
Parliament by removing this source of
corruption. Soon afterwards tlie Liberals came in. They controlled Parliament, and it was not umeasonable to
expect tfhat oue of their first acts
would have been to tic the hands of
their own and future Governments
with a law that would have given
focre to the principle they had so long
aud so loudly processed. They not
only did not do this, however, but
they continued the practice and fairly
rioted in it. The Conservatives in
eighteen years had made seventeen of
these appointments; tlie Liberals in
four years have made fourteen. Here

since last June, and ordinary decency
would suggest that he be treated
with as much respect as any other
private citizen. As to his standing in
the community, we imagine that a
man who has occupied the high positions that have fallen to Mr. Mackintosh, and who lias been so prominently associated witli the most important milling transaction in the
history of tlie Province, is not likely
to be hurt by rowdy attacks of envious and ranCOHrOUB newspapers or
" Manitobnn," in his letter in another column, does not make out a
very strong case against Mr. Hugh
John Macdfteald. In all matters of
public pdBoy tlie Manitoba Premier
has kept his word. He was in favor
of reducing members' indemnity from
1000 to (400, but that is a question of
Legislative economy which no one
man can control. All lie could ever
promise in this respect was to recommend and adovcate a reduction, and
this he did. What he could control,
however, was the number of salaried
Ministers in liis Government. These
lie promised to reduce from five to
three, and that also lie did. He is a

By way of The Monetary Times, Toronto, we learn for the first time that
it has been proposed to establish a
Negro colony of one hundred thousand
in Manitoba. The Times,OB naturally
it would do, opposes the proposition,
but we cannot gather trom its article
on the subject where, or how, or by
whom it was first made. The Negroes,
it is said, are to come from Georgia
and Alabama, but whether tlie scheme
originated there or was the suggestion
of our Minister of the Interior or
some of his agents does not appear.
Mr. Sifton's great love for tialicians,
Doukhobors, and other European riffraff would lend color to the suspicion
that this Negro colony was a plan of
his own. Whatever its source, however, public feeling should make Jit
manifest that it must no longer be

Seal tic Sept, 80.���The story of the
uls0Overy of a marvelous deposit of na-
Hvo copper In Alaska, near the head-
waters of White River, a tributary
o(tl,e Vukon, Is told by Col.KrunW B,
Mllea and Captain A. McLean, who
)mvc |utl returnd to Seal tic from that
country. They bring as evidence of
l)lfl liuli, of their statements a bag
containing thirty pounds ol'pure copper nuggets, which they claim they
������g in tho only copper placers they
havo over soon, Their trip, which was
[���ll Df perils and hardships, was undertaken tor the piirpn.se of obtaining;
Information regarding tho section of
Alaska tiny oxplorod, for n syndicate
���f wealthy New Vork and Boston
mining men. They are now engaged
in writing up tin extremely favorable
report to bo submitted to their employers.
In a Peterboro oanoe with two
French Canadians as canoeinen, they
stinted up the White River from its
confluence with the Yukon, July 80.
They lined and puled the entire distance againBt a swift and turbulent
current. They passed l.aduo Creek,
July 211, anil made the mouth of Snag
Crook soon afterward. Krom this
point they could see the Souoloi Pass,
1,1 the north. They took tho south
channel, and in 125 miles had gained
7D0 feet In altitude, Proceeding, they
found���the river cutting an entirely
new channnel through (he woods,��ak-
Ing everything before it. The falling
trees, accumulating driftwood nnd
great landslides gave a weird and
terrific aspect to the Inndcape.
At this point the whole party came
near losing everything, including
their lives. One man was on shun-
ahead, with u towline 160 feel long.
Rounding a sharp point, the" current
tore the line from his hands and,with
the other three men nearly helpless ill
it. the canoe was borne down stream
at a terrible speed. Miraculously the
towline did not catch on any snag or
root. Nad il done so the three men
would have been spilled out and placed at the mercy of the torrent. Willi
supreme coolness the boatmen guided
the canoe hither and thither around
sweepers and log jams. After a quarter of :i mile a Slight eddy was gained
and the canoe landed. It took two
(lays' effort to pass beyond this ilan-
gerouB point.
The journey continued through canyons, rapids and iey torrents. Finally, aboul 200 miles from the Yukon
the upper basin of White River was
The camp of the stampedcrs of ISOS
who went into the Yukon via Cupper
River had then been passed; seven
abandoned sleds were found in the
woods, and the pit for a wbipsaw Indicated that boats had been built
there. At tin- upper basin tlie canoe
nnd outfit were cached and the party
proceeded with packs to a permanent
ennip. twenty miles further on. Tho
first night in camp they were greatly
surprised by a visit from three In-
tlians.the first and only human beings
vet seen. The Indians had but three
pounds of moose meat, a single blanket, a small kettle and two old-fashioned i-illes. They carried bows aud
arrows, the latter tipped with native
Copper. Some were spear-shaped for
shooting fish, others blunt for ptarmigan.
"The Indians could not understand
�� word of Knglish," said Colonel
Miles at the Hotel Northern last
night, "and it took a long time to
find out from what direction their
copper came, tine of them pointed in
On easterly direction and made signs
Unit the   distance   was   two   'sleeps.'
h.v signs be described the topography
and declared that there was hiyu'
copper, That night live inches of
snow fell, so we waited and fed the
Indians three times the next day. We
started on the following morning. 2
"We readied the place after untold
hardship, fording iey streams and
trudging on with blistered feet, and
campea for the  night.   After break-
'out the following morning tlie Indians showed us to the placer copper
ground anil picked copper nuggets out
"f :i perpendicular bank twenty-five
"'el high, Further up stream, where
the bedrock was exposed, we gathered coppe,. nuggets from its crevices.
Hut soon we came to an Immense
'edge, beyond which tlie Indians said
we would Und no more copper. And
BUch proved to be the case.
After staking several claims we
returned,and by August .111 were safely
u��ok on the Yukon, having made the
Wpdown stream in our canoe in
"nee days."
Miles and Mel.can describe the
'"""try as being the roughest and
'host broken they have ever seen.

headquarters are at Conconully, Okan-
agan Country, is in the city buying
supplies to start opernl iuns on the
property of the company In the Blmll-
Kamccn, says the Spokesman-Review. The company intend to commence at once the running of the 2,800
foot tunnel into Mineral Mill lo tap
the ore bodies at that depth and the
work will he pushed through as fast
as money and n complete plant can
do It.
Mr, Wheeler is an old-timer In the
Simllkumeon and owns property that
he believes will yet make a'great
mine, lie was one of tin- many that
stampeded to Qrantle Creek in the
placer excitement of ism-,, Nol finding gold in the creeks as plentiful as
had been promised ho took to the
mountains in search of quartz ledges.
His search was finally rewarded in
the discovery of rich clipper deposits.
His account of tho discovery is interesting.
"One day when I was out in the
hills around Friday creek, a tributary
of the Slmtlkameen, 1 found some
rich bornitc lloat. Returning to camp
in the evening I showed sonic of the
heavy purple stiitl' to my partners,
who looked wise and pronounced it of
no value. I was more hopeful however, and si  after brought specimens to Spokane and bud an assay.
The return was 71 per cent in copper,
#1" in gold and KI ounces of silver per
-Hut at that time the Slmtlkameen
as a quartz district was unknown, Il
was also almost inaccessible even to
prospectors. Copper bad been found
before Ibis on tin- south furl; of the
Siniilkauicen. but little attention had
been paid to it on account of tlie isolation of the camp,
"It was not till four years later
that I secured partners, found a lead
and located the Gladstone claim. Associated with me were 10. E, Alexander. ,1. Li. Spatb and ('. lteekmyer,
since deceased. We began active development by running a 105-foot tunnel into the mountain. We did nol
find any vein but only small, irregularly distributed pockets of the rich
bornitc. Some of tin- owners became
discouraged and sold out for a few-
dollars. Further development Improved the showing, but others also sold
"The showing that wc bad, however, had convinced me that there
must be a source of this rich ore. and
I commenced a t borough system of
surface prospecting by running open
cuts, stripping the rocks and sinking
short distances. At last, after several
more ycoi's work. I found what promised to be a permanent deposit, and
with one year's assessment work I uncovered what proved tube a seven-foot
vein of the bornitc. An average taken
across the full width of this vein at
IS feel depth gave II per cent, in copper. S'.'.'itl ill gold and four ounces in
"The vein has a northwest by
southeast trend, dipping at an angle
of lid degrees southwest. The ore
body lies between well-defined walls
of granite ami diorite and carries a
good gouge on the banging wall with
a perfectly free footwall. It appears
to be evenly mineralized from wall to
wall, and it carries a good per cent of
bornitc ore that assays Sii."i per cent
copper, Sit' in gold, and lo ounces of
'"Since my discovery a parallel vein
bad been discovered   anil   gives   good
promise of equaling it in value.
"Friday Creek   apparently has   the
highest grade copper ore in the Simil-
knuieon. Copper and Kennedy mountains are also making good showings
in the development. The entire belt
gives great promise, and 1 predict for
it n great, future. Associated with
me in tin1 ownership of the Gladstone
are L. I'. Hole of Spokane and .1. I..

The Montreal Herald says: Mr.
William Mackenzie.of the firm of Mackenzie iv Mann, who was ill tho eity
yesterday, gave sjme particulars at
the Windsor Hotel regarding the progress of the Canadian Northern which
he and his partner have just returned
from Inspecting, Mr, Mackenzie predicted thai by the fall of IB01 the firm
would have an unbrokon steel line extending from I'orl Arthur to the Sas-
ketehewan, 000 miles in Length, The
rails would be laid this autumn ISO
miles west of Port Arthur and 1150
mile, cast   of   Winnipeg, leaving   100
miles to I omideted next year.    The
contract for tho connecting link of 100
miles has been sub-let and many hundreds of men are at work, so there Is
every reason to believe that Port Arthur and Winnipeg will be connected
by the Canadian Northern In about
a year's time. At present the Canadian Northern enters the City of Winnipeg by crossing the Red River on
what is known as the eity bridge, but
the company will of course build a
bridge of their own in the not distant
future. They enter Winnipeg between the Canadian Pacific, and the
Northern Pacific, but Mr, Mackenzie
says this will all be changed, but the
time is not yet. ripe to discuss Hie terminal plans. Mr, Mackenzie says that
no doubt the system will be extended
to Edmonton, but he declined to discuss the Pacific coast part of the project.
This is what the Spokesman-Review
lias to say of B. C. politics: Hon. C.
II. Mackintosh, formerly resident
manager for the Brltlsh-Amerloa Corporation at Rossland. left yesterday
afternoon over the (I. R. it N. Co.'s
line for tin-coast. In Cnnada.as well as
in the United States, a general election is on the tapis, but the ex-Lieu
tenant-Governor of the Northwest Territories seems to have dropped out of
Canadian politics. His defeat by
Smith Curtis at the last Provincial
eleotion was severely felt by Mr.Mackintosh, I'p to that time it had been
fully intended by Blr Charles Tupper
and other Conservative leaders that
Mackintosh should be their candidate
in the high constltuecy of Y'ale-Koote-
nay-Cabrloo, But when Smith Curtis
beat him Provincinlly a few mouths
back the Governor practically gave up
polities, and his name did not come
before the Conservative convention
held at Revelstoke Saturday. A. II.
McNeil, a Rossland lawyer, was chosen as the Conservative candidate. It is
perhaps just as lucky for Mr. Mackintosh that be is not tin- candidate,
for ii is said I hal 140,000 is an underestimate of what the campaign in
Y'alc-Kootenay-Cariboo will cost.
There is no doubt but what his experience as a member for that riding
helped toward tlie recent assignment
of Hewitt linstock, wlio a few years
ago came out from England witli several hundred thousand dollars.

in an effort to get tlie Colorado capital. Spokane has recently been connected by telephone with Denver, but
it by no means follows that because
Nelson can speak witli Spokane that
it can also speak with Denver. It will

will be opened between tllis place mid
the latter two cities, the Inland Telephone A Telegraph Company already

Civic Address Tendered   to   Westminster Lacrosse Hoys.
The following is the civic address
presented to the New Westminster lacrosse learn al the recent reception
tendered to them :
To tlie Members of the New Westminster Laorosse Team,   champions  of
tlie World:
Gentlemen,���On behalf of the corporation and your other fellow-citizens of New Wetsminster, we have
been requested to express to you some
thing of our proud apprcciaitou of
vour triumphal progress through
Eastern Canada.
Thai a team picked from the residents of a comparatively small place
like New Westminster has been able,
in a game making such demands upon strength and aotivity, upon pluck
and Intelligence,that lacrosse makes
that such a team lias been able, not
only to hold its own, but to lower and
lower witli a rush, tlie banners of
the best teams which the large cities
of Montreal. Quebec and Ottawa could
bring ngaiost it, is certainly sullici-
ent to make us still prouder than we
have been of the name and funic of
our Royal City.
It is true that your victories have
been won in playing a game���ill a
matter of recreation, not of business.
None the less, however, you have
advertised our city, and turned to it
public attention to an extent aud in a
manner that cannot fail to bear fruit
in the business sense; nor are the certificates from tlie point of view of
health and morals which your evident
possession of linn muscles, clear eyes,
quick intelligence and unlimited staying power have given to Westminster
things not to be overlooked or lightly
considered, Nor is it to lie forgotten
that those very qualities which have
made you victors in these games are
the same which, displayed on South
African battlefields, have sent the
name of Canada to the front of the
Empire's roll of honor.
Once again, in the name and on behalf of tlie corporation and your fel-
low-eiti/cns.we assure you of our most
hearty congratulations on your
achievements,our best wishes for your
future success in life, as in laciosse,
and our warm welcome home.
