There will be n miniature general
eleotion on tin- SGtll uf thin linnitli.
Theio ari seven vaoanoies iu tbo C'tini-
lniins, some of loiif; nud BOme nf shorter -inn lim:. and after much studying
uf the si^iiH the Government havo determined tu bring the whole seven
events off on the one day. The. vncmuoy
or longest stnndinn is Unit uf Winnipeg, whose late member. Mr. Jamie-
son, died just about, a yeni ago. During ihe lon.. reign uf the Conservatives there were many vaoanoies,
tluongh dentil, resignation, nr other
cause, aud not, infrequently the Government of the day delayed tbe by-
elections until ihe conditions appeared
most favorable to tho candidate ol
their own party. At least, that wns
iho contention ol tho Liberals, who
stormed nt the praotloe uml rteuounoed
it as an unworthy trick, until finally
it heoame an artiolo of Litieml  polloy
that, all vacancies should be filled with
the loa-ii. possible delay.  It is a curious
commentary ou the indignation ihus
upended that Winnipeg has remained
longer unrepresented than any i-iinstit-
uenoy iluring the period of Conservative ml v
Another article of Liberal faith was
thnt members of Parliament should
not he appointed to plaoea of emolument. This was done on niiineruus
occasions i.y Conservative Govern-
in9_ts, aud su reprehensible wns the
practice regarded that Mr. Muloolt, the
Postmaster-General, Introduced a Rill
when in Opposition to put a stop to it.
Yet two Of the seven vacancies are
owing tu this cause. Tbo member tor
Bertbier, Mr. Beansoleil, was appointed Postmaster of Montreal, and Mr.
Kinfret of Lotbiniere was appointed to
a (Justnius Lnspeatortbip. Tho Liberal
Ministers of tho day are BCOUsed of
having viulatwl every principle they
lirufesseil while in Opposition, Thai
is perhaps too sweeping,fur it is baiely
Iiossible thut some louse ones lire lying
around still intuct. But there is strung
presumptive evidence iu support of
the aennsation 111 the fact that two of
their principles nre discovered in a
hopelessly damaged condition within
the limits ot such a simple matter ns a
low by-elections.
Tho trouble in Winnipeg has been
thut the party was divided, and the
people ot Ottawa wore waiting until
tho factions could .�� reconciled. M..
Siiton undertook the good work, lint
his Interference made matters worse
than ever, it cost Winnipeg disfranchisement for a year, but under the
new LilierallHin that does not signify,
And now when circuiuHtnuees force the
election, tho Liberals aro afraid lo put
up a candidate. The contest is left to
Mr. B, U. Mnitiu, u very disaffected
meinU'i of the piirty, tho louder of iho

HITCHED TO A WHALE
I. WILD RIDE AT SEA AND THE OUTCOME THEREOF.
Jii.�� Wonderful Adventures or six
Virginia Slaves Who \\>r�� Whirled
'l'l.r...i_H 11.4* Ooeun's l-'nuiu to 1.11,-
erty .....l iu l'-,.riun.-.
in 171.15 n colony of six runaway slaves
I'.'iino to the Stockbrldgo vnlley, the lirst
ui' Uml nice over Been in Madison county.
Tin' history of these six slaves in full of
romance, tot they wore no common men.
'I'h'-y lnnl seen nil parts ol the world
where n ship could ride nt anchor in n
harbor, -Ml could speak several tongues,
Inn none could read or write. All wero
Blnves from Virginia mid had been bound
out hy tholr master for -1 years on a
whaling vessel that wns owned by a coiu-
pany iu New Bedford, Muss. Tbo ship
lnnl slnrteil for the south sea, to bo gone
tm it cruise of three years.
When iilimit oil utiles out nt sen from
New Bedford, the lookout discovered ti
largo whale and ordered these six sailors
in no iii n small bout und follow the
whale. When be come to tbe surface, oue
of the sailors, who was au expert, threw
a harpoon ut Ibe whale. Instead of striking him just back of the bend, which is
the usual way, the harpoon struck the
whale about teu feet from the end of the
tall, which is of a libroua nature aud
r.iusetl no loss of blood to tbe Whale.
Then the great monster shot off with
wonderful rapidity toward the middle ot
the ocean, carrying the boat, anil that
was the Inst the captain o�� that whaler
ever saw of his six sailors.
This narrative, as related by Paul Cuff,
the sailor who threw tbe harpoon, reads
like a tish story, but tbe circumstances
connected with it afterward proved its
truthfulness, as it was corroborated in
lull by all the other sailors. After this
whale had eone about 00 miles in a
straight course at sea, carrying the sailors behind it In a small boat and some of
the time going at the rate of dl) miles nn
hour, it turned its course back toward tbe
shore and then turned agnin back to sea.
Sometimes tbe whale would dive down
BOO feet and rise with great fury and
boat lhe ocean to a white foam. At times
he would spurt a volume of water 'JOU
feet iu the air.
"All this time," said Faul Cuff, "we
were riding over tbe sea in great splendor, harnessed to tho biggest tish In the
world and making the fastest time on
record." They saw and passed great
merchant ships bearing their country's
(lag, but they bad no Hag, no country, uo
home. They passed an English inuii-of-
v.ni- that gazed with amazement nt the
singular sight. They thought It wns the
devil Incarnate hitched 10 a dragon and
lii'ed u broadside at them, but their
cannon bulls passed a mile behind the
Bailors, so rapid was their course. On
they went like a comet shooting its fiery
Hume across the sky.
Alter riiling ill this style for almost
three days up nnd down (lie ocenn bitched to n whale's tail by a slender cord the
grent tish took a singular turn ami a
lucky ono for the six sailors. lie steered
his course southwest nud by accident
Btruck lhe buy and outlet of the Hiiritini
river, on the coast ot New Jersey. The
water was deep, and be followed its
course for two miles. His nose struck
the piers of a bridge that cost .-.7,11110,
und it fell with a crash into the river. The
whale then struck an oyster sloop nnd
shivered ihat to atoms, drowning three
sailors. On he went, but the water soon
became so shallojv that be landed on the
Bhore, and in three hours he was dead.
By this singular accident the six 11c-
groca became the owners of tho whale.
They sold it to nn English oil merchant
in New York city for $ 12,01.10 lu gold who
did not kuow they were slaves bound out
in tlie marine service and not entitled lo
the whale uudcr the laws. His title,
however, proved good, for the company
in New Bedford never beard of the
transaction in 20 years. The whale was
really worth about $80,000 and was the
largest ever found on the Atlantic coast.
After receiving Iheir money tile slaves
made un equal division, which gave them
S'j.uiii) each, and, through lhe advice of
Iheir leader, l'aiil Cuff, they set their
faces toward lhe western wilds of the
Unit' of New York. When they reached
Albany, they met a Pequod Indian who
wns returning from piloting some mis-
slonarles to the Btockbrldge valley. Tho
Indian gave them 11 line description ot
tbe country, and they induced him to return with them for n Stipulated price.
lie .lid so nml lived witli them iu I his locality until be died. They bought on
contract with ihe Oneida Indians about
200 acres of laud for each at a nominal
sum. A ll. ward the lilies were con-
linned by the State of New York. They
nil lived to n Hue old nge, and all were
highly respected.
All of I hem died here except one, who
i.tiiiiied io New Bedford after a lapse of
r,u \ .111 - mid ilicd tbere about 40 years
ago,   Tin' remains of the others are laid
to   t.'st  side   hy   side   ill   the  old   Indian
graveyard at Valley Mills, ami then- l��

have been   awarded the job,
[f this cunjecturo be correct, it
will be locally received with universal
regret ns ii will mean that Knot.-nnj
will receive the least possible lienelit
from ibis piece of construction. The
c P, K. are obliged, by the terms of
their dinner, lo let thn contract to n
British subject. Mr. Stuart is a Hritish siil'ject, so hn fillN the bill, but he
resides un the other side, his property
i-. on Ilie other side, he pnys his taxes
ou the other side nnd he spends his
mouey on the other side, Tims he is
n Brittsli subjeol only in name. Apart
from this, he represents the big railway contraotors, Foley Ai Larson, who
are from the othor .ide. So if Mr.
Mnnrt and his linither-in-law. Mr.
Welch, get the ooutraot, aliens, and not
Canadians, will derive the chief benefit fioni iliis piece ol work. Color is
lent in Ihe bullet that this outfit bns
I'di successful by the fact that Mr.
l-'i'i.-y arrived in Bpokane on Mondai
nighr.
Mr, \V. F. Tyo was expected in Nelson last night, nnd it wns though! that

however, nml the local contraotors are

Lieutenant Beer, in spite of a telegram and four letters to Colonel Prior,

two or three days past he has refused

" Mr. Pettyplece, well known in western journalistic circles, is in Nelson.
He intends tn go tu Ferguson iii the
Lardenu Country, in a day or two nnd
will sturt n paper there.
"A lady liviug at L'dgar, Illinois,
writes asking that The Tribune be
sent to her address. She says she
wants tu hem tbo latest war new'R. "
A paper must be in a bad way, when
it has tu boost of subscribers of thnt
degree of intelligence.
Owing to the trial of the Kellv case
in the City Hall yesterday hardly
standing room wan available all day
lung It was a striking instance of
the insufficiency of the aocummfidation
there Ordinary civic business hnd
to be to a largo extent, suspended.
The steaniei Neison bns to bn laid up
for n few days fnr repairs. This is
particularly Inoonrenlnnt nt this juncture, as ihe 0. V. K. just now is hauling mure freight over the Crow's Nest
IJas- thau it bus ever done except, at
the time when tho boundary road first
opened.
The plans and specifications of a
branch line of the C P. R. up Ten Mile
Creek through Camp Mansfield down
Kasln Creek to Kasln, have been forwarded to Montreal, and this line will
certainly be hnilt next summer. The
new road will pass near all the properties ill Camp Mansfield and within a
mile and a hull' of the Molly Gibson,tn
which point an aerial tramway can
easily be cuustructed.
Mr. Bruce White returned yesterday
[rum n visit to the Molly Gibson mine
on Kokunee Creek. Ho reports that
86 men are now employed at tbe mine,
which is showing np exceedingly well.
Leads of gold bearing quartz aro being encountered, and it. looks as if the
Molly Qibsoil will snun be shipping
g.ihl uro, as well as silver-lead Another shipment of high g-a.ln ore wns
made to the Hall Mines smelter on
Monday.
The Nelson Gas & Coke Company's
works ore a busy place just now, over
no men being cinpiuyid in construction
and Installing the   machinery,   The
last carload of this is expected this
week and is being put iu place as fast
as it arrives. Thu trusses are all up
and the corrugated Iron roof is being
put nu. The stack foi the boilers is iu
place, ami the condensers, soubbers,
ami purifiers arc in piocess nf Installation,    The bottom of   the gasometer,
which is uii feet in diameter, will be
completed ready for lowering Into pn-
silinn Unlay.
Tho leader ol Ilie Smelter Hand has
been dismissed, nnd the baud is temporarily non-existent but will be reorganized as a city Band with tbe tame
membership at a praotioe to be held
tomorrow evening. A story has gained credence In certain circles that The
Miner nied Its Inflnenoe to firing about
the suite of affairs mentioned, because
the band   ttiuk part   in   Mr.  Houston's
procession on eleotion day and subsequently played u dead niaicli under
The Miner's windows This is absolutely iinirue. None oonneoted with
this paper know of the change referred
to mil il alter it ban taken placo.

How Eat-b Country Is Interested in Keeping tbe Other's Friendship.
(From the Now York Stocsholder. i
Few of uttr people realize the extent,
resources and development ot oor
neighbor���our neatest neighbor, we
maj Bay���Canada, lying right at our
doors���its uietropoli:-, Montreal, within 13 miles by rail of our Greater
Ji��\v Vork. Not is it known generally
that Canada in area slightly exceeds
io extent the whole of the United
States. Then tbo extent of the trade
between Cannda and the United States
is greater than between Canada and
(irent, Britain and steadily increasing
in volume. Bordering on our domains
lor 3,1X111 miles, from tho Atlantic to
the Pacific, with uno great hue of railway, the Canadian Pacific, stretching
tin- entire distance, being the largest
continuous line of railway In existence ; within ten days' of Japan ou
tno west and seven days of Europe on
the east, our neighbor is attaining an
importance that is worthy of our highest respect aud consideration.
Bound   together  by   tbe ties of geographical affinity, and bv the commercial and financial  interests inseparable
to such proximity, it is stin-ly   becoming lor these two Anglo-Saxon  countries to   cultivate   relations   mutually
harmonious, enduring and iu consonance wtib   tbo   civilized  character  of
both.    We oan  pass over  the  border
Without  knowing scarcely whelliei we
arc in the domains Of Her Majesty the

true there  bave   been   at   tinn's   some
slight differences of local Interest arising between  Canada  and the   United
States, for  instance   the   Lynn   Canal
matter at piesent,   but these havi been
amicably adjusted to the mutual satisfaction ot  the   parlies  concerned   and
honorably   to  both.    Nor i*   it   likely
that there   will   be uny   occasion  for
rumble   between] these    two    nearest
neighbors,   tbat cannot be  settled in
an equitable manner.
Tbe scope for tbe development of
trade between these two extensive
countries, lying' side by side tor thousands of miles, is very great. It would
lie Impossible to attempt   to  calculate
what this inter-trade will  amount ta
We have made greater strides than
Canada, but Canada is now moving
along tbe same lines to populousness
and prosperity,and is showing remarkable progress Canada is highly favored under Us union with ('rent Britain.
She has all tho powerful protection of
the Crown   and it does  Uot cost her   a
penny. Canada regulates her trade
With Great Britain just as Independently as she does with any other nation, and provides her own legislature,
She has really protection and lnde
pendenoe co-existing. Our facilities
for putting Canada's products iii all
markets reached by our steamship lines
are excellent, and Canada avails of
these advantages in no small degree
Canada is a wonderful country in minerals, in lumber, in (liberies, in stock-
inising, In agriculture, in furs, and
the development in the fiolds bus
