Winnipeg, Aug. 18.��� William Cross,
who represents the management in
tlie meetings of the committees, was
Interviewed last night as to how the
situation now stood. He said: "Progress towards an amicable settlement
is being made with as favorable dispatch as can be expected. Yesterday

He Does Not Anticipate Elections as Early as
Montreal. Que., Aug. 18.���A well
informed Liberal discussing general
election possibilities, takes the view
that it will be practically impossible
to hold the elections as early as October and strongly inclines to thc January idea. He had a talk with Laurier
before he left on his trip to the Marl-
time provinces, and from the plan of
tbe campaign, the premier talked undertaking it would be out of tbe question for bim to attempt to hold the
elections as early as October. He
spoke of devoting about as much time
to Quebec as be spent in Ontario last
fall, which would mean nearly two
months. Besides this, he hopes to put
iu some time in the Maritime provinces which may or may not be taken to
mean the present trip. Then again,
he spoke of visiting the closer constituencies in Ontario before election day.
If the Premier undertakes all that, be
could hardly accomplish it In time to
get a verdict in October. The premier does not propose to go west of
Lake Superior, giving Mr. Sifton full
charge of the campaign in the west.
Montreal, Aug. 18.���Hon. Tarte,

exceed that of any previous year. Entries in all departments, especially
live stock, are the largest In its history,
Kaslo Mining  Men Protest  Aaalnst  Mineral
Tax Increase.
Kaslo. Aug. 18.���The raising of the
mineral tax to two per cent is loudly
denounced by all tlie mining men in
this city as tending to throw back thc
industry on which the whole country
depends. Its immediate effect they
say. will lie to keep out capital, and
this will mean the retarding of the
opening of the mines, the loss of
business to local merchants and a continuation of the stagnation caused by
the ill-advised Semlin-Cottou legislation. An informal meeting of mining
men and others was held last night to
talk over the subject and a special
meeting of tbe Hoard of Trade was
held today at which the subject was gone into exhaustively and
an earnest protest against the tax sent
to tbe (Iovernment at Victoria.

London, Aug. 18.���Socially the week
lias been very dull and there is little
of interest to the smart set in the
metropolis, The city is still filled
witli American and Canadian
tourists, who for tlie most part
lire going and returning from the
Paris Exposition. Hotels and the

doing a thriving business and the relax of the Parisian travel is tilling the
cotters of the publicans, even if the
merchant classes arc less fortunate iu

Senator Chauncey M. Dcpew sails on
the American line steamer New York
today. He has been in consultation
witli British financiers who are substantially interested in the ability of
tho United States to make loans
to Kurope. Thc senator said: "Tin
sudden development of our Industries
and the Immense accumulation of
money growing out of the fact that
Europe Is paying six hundred million
annually for American products, has
not only brought tlie bank rate and

are now buying paper In the East

was under a disadvantage in not better knowing tlie diverse elements of
the Dominion. He did not want any
section of thc people of Canada to forget their origin. He did want tbem
to give their whole heart, soul and
energy to make the Dominion a united

contingents he said he hated war. but
when an insolent foe gave insult to
tbe Hag of England there was no hesitation. We sent our troops and they

contests in the International exhibition of fire apparatus came oil' yesterday afternoon at Vincennes, some
5,000 firemen, representing many
nationalities,     participating. Tlie
American representatives, Chief Geo.
C. Hale of Kansas City, and the men
of the Kansas City fire brigade, caused
great wonderment by their quick

with their methods of life saving.
They received an ovation and by common consent, were assigned first

yesterday afternoon, finishing thc debate and passage ill eight hours. In
the work on thc consideration of Kootenay appropriations. Smith Curtis
made a brilliant effort, doing through
the grants to other constituencies  he
showed that Kootenay had for years
heen getting the worst of the deal,
paying enormous sums towards the
revenue, of which but a small proportion was returned for opening up the
rich district. In four years only oue
third, or 1500,000, had been appropriated.in spite of the fact that nearly 10

contribution to revenue returned and
in Some cases almost the whole. He
did not object to other grants, but
Kootenay was becoming tired of being milked. To the ricli district of
Trail he noticed tbat not one cent had
been appropriated. Kossland had not
received Sufficient either, although
through it the riches of the Province
had received world wide advertisement. It was surely entitled to as
much as tlie Blooan. Ho objected also
to tbe way prevailing of giving larger
grants to Government ridings. It is
possible that some additional grants

On the Nelson estimate of 811,300,
Houston made the following speech :
"I asked for 811.000, but the Minister
of Finance has made it 111,800, Why
he did it I don't know, but 1 should
like to say thnt If he gives mc just
what I ask for there will lie no
trouble. As some of tbe members are
kicking about their trails they might

themselves. "
In the evening the Vaacouvcr
charter for consolidation wus railroaded through at Imperial Limited
speed. The opposition members went

Mr. Melnnes apologised to Prentice
this morning for the Insulting expressions of yesterday when in the House.
He bad stated that the Provincial

Ii. .1. BEATON, Editor and Manager
i un- local contemporary
stmiin'il Itself ibis morning in the endeavor to
pet up an excitement over the fact
that the liovernment have been asked
to carry ont their promise to appoint
a Commission to Inquire Into the
working ot onr mining laws. What
was intended to be a sensational >li*-
patoh was ^'iit on fnnn the Capital.
nnd the publication ol this wns reinforced by editorial commente ol a
distinctly carmine hue. The wicked
mine owners nre at it again, so it Is
declared. Tbey nre not content to lie
still and be trampled upon, as good
mine owneis nre expected to do, but
are Impudently protesting that the
laws afiecttng them and their industry need looking into. In venturing
to suggest the expediency ol doing
this they convict themaelvej as base
agitators, who have so little regard
for the peace and quiet of the torn-
munlty that they would actually
expose nn Injustice to themselves,
should a Legislative inquiry discover
that there was one In existence. Altogether, it would appear, they are
behaving most abominably.
What hns actually happened is  that
the President and other delegates representing the   Associated   Hoards of
Trade ol Eastern British Columbia are
communicating to the (iovernment the
resolutions passed at iheir recent Congress.    This they were   instructed   to
ilo. and    they   nre   doing it.     Among
I hose resolutions was one   rending   in
part as follows:     "That this meeting
strongly approves of   the   proposal   of
the Government to appoint a special
Commission to Investigate  the working nf the Mineral Acts.''     It   was   a
purpose   formed   by the   Government
themselverf;    the    Associated     Boards
approved, and their approval ia  communicated  according to  a   resolution
that   so   directed.     It   seems   that  a
number ot mining companies have also made representations to the effect
that the purpose  ol the (iovernment.
endorsed by the Associated   Hoards of
Trade,  has their   warmest   support.
There is nothing  of   a  particularly
evil character in all this; nothing, in-
deed, that should disturb tbe equanimity of any peaceably  disposed citizen.    If the working of our  laws   are
not to be Inquired into, the sooner we
stop making laws   the better.    There
is no law on   the   statute   book    that
should claim Immunity from  remark
or   criticism.    We   elect   Legislatures
for the express purpose  ol   exercising
the closest supervision over   all   laws
already passed,as well as over the con
ditions that   require   new   ones.     I'or
some time there has   lieen   a   general
complaint that the  conditions  affect
ing the mining industry of the   Province an- not as  satisfactory  ns  could
be desired.    They arc  regarded   with
hi   much   dissatisfaction   that   great
difficulty is experienced   In   inducing
the Investment  of  new   capital.   No
longer ago than yesterday a letter was
reoelved in Nelson from n gentleman
at   present    in    London,    nnd   who   Is
prominent in financial and   industrial
circles in this country, in   which  the
Statement was made that " no   money
for mines in 11. ( ��� can be raised   here
on any   account."    As   long   as   that
can be said of us there   is   something
seriously wrong with our management
of affairs, tor no one  has any  doubt
that we have minerals   to   mine   thnt
offer n generous return nn the capital
necessary   to   develop them.    If the
trouble lies with the laws relating to
this industry, il is important that we
should know it. The Government came
to a wise determination In  declaring
that they would apiHiiui a Commission
for the purpose of ascertaining.
and the mine owners and the
Associated Boards of Trade demonstrate a keen appreciation of
the public Interest In supporting them
in their decision, Lei us have all the
light nn the subject thai it is possible
to shed.
Ministers, who are on the far side of
the Atlantic, mny be taken as an assurance that the order fur the campnigu will not be given at once. In
the menu time Mr. Sifton will have
his opportunity to feel the political
pulse of British Columbia. The gentleman is clever, and can make a
Bpeech that is at once wordy and
plausible. But a more tricky politician is not to be found anywhere in
the Dominion. The Liberal managers
are not to be commended for wisdom
in selecting him to pull this Province
into line. His eloquence will scarcely
dispel the feeling of distrust witli
he is regarded. As the boy on the
street would say. the people out this
way who keep their eyes aud ears
open are "on to him".
Mr. Honston has peculiar notions as
a member of the Legislature. He tells
the Finance Minister that his appropriations for work ia the Nelson Hiding are not expected or desired to exceed the amount demanded by himself. The Minister Is supposed to be
the judge in eases of this kind. He
listens to representations lhat are
made to liim, and then decides according to the funds available and the requirements of the public service. If
Mr. Turner has put down more than
Mr. Houston asked, it proves that Mr.
Houston does not know as mnch of the
wants of his Riding as a member
should; and, in suggesting that th��
excess lie distributed among other
Ridings, lie was guilty of an impertinence to the (Iovernment and made a
display of very   mistaken   generosity.
Several commanding officers and
others in authority in South Africa
have lieen so careful in cabling our
Canadian casualties thnt there is room
to hope the report of Mr. A. S. Lee's
denth by a Boer bullet li'ay prove baseless. He is described as Corporal l.ee.
of Nelson. No information of his pro-
m tion had lieen received here, as far as
known publicly. The absence of it
tends to strengthen the hope that a
mistake haa lieen made, and that our
Mr. Lee is still among the living.
Should it prove otherwise, however,
there will be deep regret among the
many who knew him in Nelson as a
splendid specimen of the Anglo-Saxon

Btreet, Nelnon, B. 0. Nklson   Daily  Miner,  Saturday  Evening.  August 18,  1900
What D.
T. Strobock Says of the Future of
That District.
"Once more the old Hot Springs
camp Is coming to the front and ere
many Bcasons Ainsworth will lie tlm
silver-lead camp of the Kootenays,"
said 1). V. Strobeck, who has just
returned from a In days' trip up there,
to a Spokane Chronicle reporter,
tinning, he Bald: "There 1*
development being done In the camp,
especially at thc headwaters of Coffee,
Krjio anil the two forks of Woodbury
creeks. Several of the properties are
taking out ore, most of which is high
grade and will be  shipped during the
"At the Star mine the No. 3 shaft
is now down 85 feet. The last no
feet Is all in ore. A drift has been
started soutli at this level and about
one ton of clean ore is taken out a
day, which assays 50 ounces silver,
tin per cent, lead and seven per cent,
cupper. These are about average
values. Judge D. P. Hatch of Los
Angles, Cab, one of the owners is
personally superintending the work,
which is being done liy contract. A
wagon road will be built to the. mine
this fall so shipments may be made
during the winter.
"A. A. McKinnon, who has charge
of the Hector, Informs me that be 1b
to start a ..011-foot crosscut tunnel at
once, which will tap the ledge ut a
depth of of 838 feet under the ore shoot
where tbey are now taking out and
shipping from.
"The Buckeye and the Highlander
are both closed down at present. It is
thought in both cases 'for a purpose'
However, Maxwell Stevenson, of Philadelphia, owner of the latter, is expected In a few days, and it will then
no doubt be started up again. The
tunnel which is being driven on this
property means much to many other
mines besides tbe Highlander, ftB it
will tap at great depth the veins on
the Albion, King Solomon and Little
Donald groups.
"The drift on the Tariff vein from
the Highlander tunnel is now iu 535
feet and a crosscut has been made to
both walls, which are about 30 feet
apart. This shows much clean ore on
both walls besides several feet of good
concentrating ore. This drift is about
1.10 feet below the old workings and
has drained the lead so that no more
pumping is required.
"The King Solomon Mines Company
at Woodbury Creek has a petition out
for a post olllee at their camp. Their
working shaft Is now down about 17fi
feet, The company is erecting several
buildings, among tbem two two-story
ollice buildings 88x88, In one of
these a fire proof vault 8x1(1 feet, two
stories high, has been erected. One
carload of furniture aud oHicc fittings
has arrived.
"Mr. Connor, Mr. Spaulding and
several other of the owners of the
Liberty and Launa groups are at present watching the development of
their properties ou Woodbury Creek.
"The Kootenay Air Supply Company Is surveying a line from Loon
lake to Cedar Creek, ll distance of
13,300 feet, along which they will lay
a five-inch main. It will cross the
Little Donald group. Spokane and
Trinket, 37, .lunette, Ida 0., Skookum
aud Libby. The company, which has
taken over tbe Highland group, will
use air from this Hue to drive their
deep tunnel, which they are starting
from Cedar Creek.
"A wagon road is to be built at
once from the end of the present one
on Cedar Creek up to the Highland
mine. A contract has been let for a
large concentrator, to be completed
before Jan. 1, mill, at the mouth of
Cedar Creek. A train is now being
surveyed from the mine to the mill,
and it will be in running order in
time to supply the mill.
"Thc site for the mill is all cleared
and levelled off ready for the masons.
The mine is being put in working
shape. About 100 men will be employed hy thc first of tlie year.
"On the Illinois the contractors report a change in the ground the past
few days. Much iron bits been encountered, which is now turning into
galena, and that with tlie twisted
character of the vein and water leads
them to believe they nre near tbe
cross lead they haye been drifting

���.iilti.i and 1 i.uii". Unions Trouble Ripe at
Vancouver, Aug. 18.���The officers
of the Sixth Diiheiif Connaught's Own
are Indignant at the threatened action
of   the   Trades   and Labor Council, of
Vancouver, to oxpell from the labor
unions all members of the militia.
They say that there arc forty Or fifty
union men in the ranks, and among
the most efficient men in the regiment.
The officers do no wish to express
their private views for publication.
Colonel Worsnop said as an officer his
mouth was closed, lie was asked if
nothing could be done by him if, as
reported, soldier citizens were to be
expelled from labor unions because
they were soldiers.
Colonel Worsnop said Unit "the
result of such contemplated action
was not his lookout." Major Bennett
said be could not express himself as
an ollicer. but he thought it no harm
in suggesting that the Trades and
Labor Council should, if they considered the Imperial or Dominion laws
governing these things were wrong,
set themselves about making representations to the proper authorities in
au attempt to have the laws changed.
Capt. Gardiner Johnson stated tbat
If his commanding ollicer  could   not
speak there was much more reason for
his keeping his mouth shut.
"Don't you know," he said, "that
a soldier, if he is insulted, jeered at
and spat upon, must bear it as best he
can under orders and act us nearly as
possible according to the life of Christ'.'
That is under orders, and I am under
orders. As a citizen 1 should very
much like to give you my opinion, but
1 fear that I cannot act in the double
role under the circumstances."
Lieut. Tate expressed the same sentiments,     lie   lidded,    however,    that
should the contemplated action of the
unions result in their losing forty or
tifty first class soldiers he believed
that their places could lie filled and
the standard of the Duke of Oon-
uaught's Own kept up.

Computation of  How Manv Thore Are,
I In-lr Nationalities.
From The London Mail.
At the present time, when the fate
of Europeans tn all parts of the Celestial Empire is attracting the attention ami anxiety of the whole civilized world, it is nn interesting query
how many Europeanc���or, rather,
"white" folk���there arc altogether in
the various parts of China.
The information is not at all easy
to get. for when a country stretches
thousands of miles, and it takes a
traveler four months to proceed from
the coast to the far interior, even by
constant traveling, it is plain that
such statistics are extremely difficult
to obtain. Hut one famous foreign
newspaper, the Deutschcr HeichH-An-
zeiger. has been at some pains to get
particulars of what figures are available relating to the known "foreigners" in the towns known as the
"treaty ports," and from its researches we are enabled to give some
idea of how far our own relations and
countrymen surpass those of other
nation's iu their colonizing and trade
in the Chinese Empire.
Thc figures apply to some Bevcn or
eight towns ou the seucoast of China,
open for trade and business to all nationalities.     In these  figures   we   Hnd
that there arc, in round numbers!
English, B.BOSi Japanese, 8,440j American-, 2,835; Russians, l.ti'-'l; Portuguese, 1,433; French, i, isa; Germans,
1,13-1 ; Spaniards. 448; Scandinavians,
844 j Belgians, 834; Danes, 1,78: Italians. 134; Dutch, 106, miscellaneous,
Ull. a total of 17,198.
It thus appears that Englishmen
form more than a third portion of all
the foreigners in China, and this fact
alone will show us what a stake we
have in the most costly stake in ull
���human lives���in the events now oc-
curing in the Celestial Empire. A
genernl massacre of all foreigners in
that land (and this iu by uo means
Improbable, nay. it is even very likely
to happen, if the l'ekin " foreign
devils" arc all murdered) would mean
that we in this country should have
to mourn the loss by a terrible death
of torture and trial of no fewer than
5,503 brave   Englishmen  and women:
Our trading arms In these towns
number 401; while Japan's arc  105;
and she is second, far. far behind us.
Germany has 116, and is third. Then
there ure 70 French trading firms in
China and 19 Russian, Isn't the comparison redlculous, after all? What
stake have France and Russia put together compared with England and
Japan even'.'
