Nelson,   British Columbia,  Friday Evening,   October 5,  1900.
Eleventh Year
English Electors Declare In Favor of the
"War and of the Annexation of
the Republic.
],������,l���n, Oct. 5.���The khaki boom
has swept the country. Yesterday's
pollings are a tale of Increased Ministerialists and diminished Liberal
majorities. The returns from tlie rural districts today (Friday) and tomorrow may do something to rehabilitate
the Liberals, but the results thus far
have fully justified Mr, Chamberlain,
and the party organizers are backing
the Government In the choice of moment to dissolve Parliament, Few
will doubt that an appeal to the country a month or two earlier would have
produced an even more remarkable
Unionist outburst. Nevertheless the
Ministerial may already congratulate themselves on being returned
with increased majority. Yesterday
the Conservatives gained 18 seats, as
against three gained by the Liberals.
The tvorkiugmen of the country have
replied iu a very decided voice in favor of the war and of annexation of
the Republics.   Mr.   Andrew Trybur-
get   I'ovillitnd.   who    was   defeated in
I the Bluckfrtars division, had sat for
Glasgow in the Liberal interests since
I 1886 and the llridgeton division was
Sir Geo, Otto Trevlyan's old seat.
I loth bad long been Liberal strongholds. The results In Liverpool and
other industrial districts tell a similar story of increased Unionist majorities. Mr. Chamberlain who was listening to the results over the telephone sent the following message to
the people of Birmingham: "This lias
been a good day s work for the Empire. "
London itself felt the full tide, of
Unionist victory. The Liberal representation from the metropolis will
not  amount   to   more than   seven   or
i eight out of <Yl members. In all directions the anti-war candidates have
been defeated. Londoners were uot
slow last evening to testify to their
delight. Wherever the results were
displayed crowds collected to cheer
and demonstrate In favor of the favorites.
Atasons Will Erect a Temple
on Lots East of Sher-
$,    brooke House.
LI Hung Chang Changes His
Mind and Leaves for
the Capital.
An elaborate Masonic temple, at, a
cost of probably over (30,000, is to be
erected upon tlie two vacant lots immediately to the east of the Sher-
brooke House on Haker Street in the
near future.
The enterprise has been under con-
slderatlon,by the members of the Nelson ledge, A.F. .V A.M. for some time
past, and the trustees of tin' lodge
have been appointed to look into the
matter. The two lots were purchased
some time ago with this intention in
view and now definite action is being
taken. The building is to be four
stories high, the first to be erected in
Nelson. It will be built over Hie entire two lots.giving it a oil foot frontage and extending to the rear 180 feet.
The basement story will contain the
heating plant. On the ground Boor
will he two large oblong rooms to
lie used as stores. On the second Door
large and convenient rooms will be
constructed to be rented for olliee
Use, In the top story the lodge proper will bo and where none but masons will cuter.    At  the   front   of tlie
lodge   r n,   which   will   lie   7.1   feot
long by 50 feet wide, will  be suitable
cloak n is.    At the rear of the lodge
room there will be a large banquet
hall, Tho lodge room is to he elaborately furnished, and no pains will be
spared to   make   it one of tlie best   in
the Province.
The   membership  of  the lodge  is
rapidly growing and has now udvanc
ed to tlie KM) mark, and it is said that
the present hall, on occasions of large
gatherings,   is   not   large   enough   to
comfortably accommodate all who attend,
Tien Tsin, Oct. II.��� Via Shanghai,
Oct. 1. ���Li Hung Chang and M. De-
(liers. the Russian Minister to China,
had a lengthy conference today, after
whloh it was announced that Li Hung
Chang would depart, for Pekin tomorrow. Li Hung Chang will be accompanied hy the Russian admiral, a Russian guard and bis own bodyguard.
Peaceful conditions prevail. The
failure of the Russians, to rebuild the
railway to Pekin is causing talk
among the commanders of the restoration of the line to tlie English owners
for reconstruction and operation.
The sick among Ihe Americans are being sent to tlie hospital ship Maine,
which will sail soon for Nagasaki and
with a committee of the board of
trade on transportation matters. As
a result it is believed there will be a
turn to the old night servico on the
Victoria-Vancouver route for tlie
winter months at least.
It has been decided by the Department of Marine and Fisheries that in-
Btcad of one vessel being built for the
fishery and coast protection service,
there will be two, the larger to be
somewhat samller than that formerly
intended. The change necessitated a
new model being secured and new
specifications being drafted. A telegram reached here yesterday from the
Department to the effect that tenders
will be called for in Hritish Columbia
for tho construction of the vessels as
soon as the models and specifications
are ready.
During the past few days upwards
of 200 stoves have been purchased from
the Albion Iron Works Co., by the naval authorities at Esquiinalt. They
will be shipped to China on the Empress sailing ou Monday next,consigned to tlie ollicer commanding the liritisli troops iu China.

He came from eastern Canada to Hritish Columbia with the construction

Owenboro, Ky., Oct. S,���A strike of
miners at Raskctt for recognition of
the union has been won. The settlement carried with it a reduction
of wages. The owner of the mines
never recognized tbe union but paid
wages averaging five cents more than
the union schedule. This probably
Is tbe first strike for lower wages
ever made.

Shanghai, Oct. i.���A small body of
Imperial Chinese troops appeared at
I'ei Tacbu yesterday. They informed
tlie Hritish garrison that their pur-
poscHvas to disperse the Boxers. They
were not molested by the Hritish. It is
announced that the Germans will winter 8,000 men in Pekln. The liritisli
are reducing their force in preparation for the winter. One thousand
coolies will   start for India  soon   and
the Indian cavalry   will probably be
withdrawn.    The   volume of   business
being done is steadily increasing.

Splendid progress is being made on
the construction of the electric light
dam. It was thought that the. lights
would be turned on tomorrow night
but it is now probable that they will
not bo turned on until the middle of
next week, The delay is caused by
the Nelson Sawmill Company being
unable to furnish tlie lumber owing to
a break down of tbe machinery yesterday. Tho work is now completed to
tlie ievel of the old dam. but as il
lias to bo carried eight feet above
this, the work will not be completed
until late next week.

stay of a day in Victoria, visiting
points of interest around the city.

Spokane, Wash., Oct. .1.-Charles II.
Atbei'ton, an old (J. P. It. employee at
Vancouver. Grand Forks and Nelson,
committed suicide in this city by taking poison, lie was found dead in a
cheap lodging house and in^ tlie room
was found a bottle of strychnine and
a box of morphine with a hypodermic
needle on the lied beside the body.
A packet of papers found on the
body was taken in possession by Coroner linker. It contained many letters, mostly of recommendation. The
most important of these from a historical standpoint is dated January 10,
Is'Js. It is signed by Laeey It. Johnson as master mechanic of tlie Pacific
division of the Canadian Pacific. It
states that Atherton was employed in
Johnson's otliee as chief clerk, his
time of service being from November
15, 188H to January IS,  1808.
Tlie Johnson letter ends: "Ather-
ton's conduct has been satisactory. lie
is a thoroughly capable man and
leaves mo of his own accord. I wish
him success.*'
The next in point of date was written at Trail, September 7, 18(1(1. by W.
F. Tyc, as division superintendent.
It was addressed to II. A. Durkee,
trainmaster, and asked that courtesies
of the road be extended Atherton, who
bad been appointed temporary agent
at Grand Forks. The third is also
from Mr. Tyc. It is addressed to A
L. Clements at Grand Porks,and bears
date of September 88, 1899. It gives
orders for tho conduct of the Grand
Forks olliee.
The next was written December 0,
181111, by A. L. Clements, agent at
Grand Forks, H. C. It says: "Atherton has been employed at my office as
cashier for several months. I have
found his accounts carefully and accurately kept and correct at all times.
His services has been satisfactory."
There is one under date of March 1.
1900, signed by T, 1'. (lutelius, super
intendent. It was written at Trail,
and states that Atherton was employed as clerk and "checker" at Trail
and Smelter Junction from March .1,
181IH, to March 1, WOO. It stated that
his services wore satisfactory, and
that he was released because of a "reduction in forces. "
A toueli of possible romance was
lent to the tragedy by the finding of a
photograph on the breast of the dying
man. It was an unfinished proof of
the picture of a handsome woman of
perhaps 80 years. The picture was
enfolded in an embossed New Year's
card, on the outside of which wastliiH
inscription: "All good wishes accompany this from Ainice." The Inside
of the card bore a verse, signed "II.
M. Bumslde." Verse and signature
were written in a plain, well styled
hand. Tlie verse reads:
������My lips can find   no  greeting, dear,
That seems so lillleh  to sny
As this, 'God keep you all the year,
Qod bless you day by day.'
The folder was closed and   bound by
a rubber bund.   After  the  band had
heen removed  a   short time   and   the
proof had been  exposed   to   the   light
the picture grew too dark   to   bo   discernible.
Rossland Man Nominated by

Mr. Charles II. Atherton, before
.Tallies Wilks, as predicted by The
Miner,was the choice of the labor convention and wus tendered tlie nomination yesterday afternoon, but he declined it, and Christopher Foley, of
Rossland, was named and an acceptance was secured from him.
There were four names placed before the convention, James Wilks, of
Nelson ; Christopher Foley, of Kossland; Arthur Ferris, of Kossland, and
John McLaren, of Kossland. The lat-
tei two gentlemen withdrew and on a
division Mr. Wilks heat Foley by a
large vote. Mr. Willis was given until tlie afternoon session to decline or
accept the nomination and during
the noon recess some of the fastest
political work ever executed in Nelson was indulged in. Mr. tlalliher's
friends did not want Wilks nominated
and inlluences were brought to bear
upon the nominee to induce him to
declino the nomination. Whether or
not Mr. Wilks was influenced in any
way by these, is an open quest ion, but
in any event, be declined the nomination at tlie afternoon session. Mr.
Foley, being the second choice of the
convention, was offered the nomination by wire and after a short delay
an acceptance   was secured from   him.
A campaign committee, consisting
of the following, was appointed:

Spokane, Wash., Oct. 5.���Mr. W. II.
Dowsing is tlie happiest man in Spokane this morning. The Nelson mineral exhibit to which he has given all
his attention for tlie past three or
four weeks, aud in charge of which
he now is, has been declared by the
judges to be the best mineral exhibit
as the fair and has therefore been
awarded the lirst prize for individual
exhibits. Not only this, but liritisli
Columbia lias beaten all of the states
and has been awarded lirst prize in
the state class. In the district class
tlie Nelson district exhibit drew second prize. Tbe judges have also declared that tbe bricks made by Ihe
Mansfield Manufacturing Co., of Nelson, are the best bricks in competition
ami they have been awarded tlie lirst
prize. For limestone the Manslield
Co. secures another first, and for orna
mental and building stone two second
prizes, There never has been any
doubt in the mind of Mr. Dowsing

The above dispatch   will be read by
Nelson citizens witli   a great   deal   of
pride and pleasure.   In congratulating
i themselves, however,   they   must   not
forget Mr. Dowsing and the thanks
that are due to him. It was through
hi- ell',,rN alone that tlie exhibit was
secured and therefore to him is entitled tin' credit that comes witli the
award of the judges. Mr. Dowsing is
a good man to have iu any comniun-

Paris. Oct. 5���The following official
note was issued this afternoon:
"The foreign Minister lias instructed representatives of France to found
the powers whose troops are co-operating with ours in the extreme east
regarding the adoption of a common
programme for tbe negotiations with
China. Our representatives acquitted
themselves of this mission and left
witli the various foreign minister a
copy of the following note: Iu sending their forces to China the Powers
proposed first of all to deliver their
legations. Thanks to their union and
the valor of lho troops this aim has
been attained. It. is now a question
of securing from the Chinese Govern*
inenl. which has given Prince Ching
and Li Hung Chang full power to negotiate and treat in its names, suit-
aide reparation for the past and serl-
OU8 guarantees for the future. Penetrated with the spirit which Inspired
the previous declarations of the different Governments, the Government of
the Republic believes it sums their
real sentiments in the following
points which it siilimits as a basis for
negotiations   to   I ntcred upon im-
 dlately after the usual verifications
,,f ihe Powers,
"First    Ihe    punishment   of    the
principal culprits who   will    be designated by   Ihe   representatives   of   tho
Powers at  Pekin,
"Second   The   maintenance of   the
propositi,in of the import of arms.
"Third    Equitable   Indemnities   to

"Fourth 'lho formation of a permanent guard for tin* Pekin Legations.

���Sixth Military occupation of two

Ing to go to the sea. or to forces proceeding to Pekln fr Ihe sea.
"Presentedcollectively to the repre*
sentatlves of the powers, supported by

Returns of Hritish elections continue
to come in day by day. 1'oiling began about a week ago. and at this
writing less than two-thirds of the
House have been elected. These daily
returns make novel reading' to the
younger generation of Canadian electors, who are accustomed to seeing
these events disposed of in one day.
The returns themselves have in a large
measure lost their interest, as there is
no longer any doubt of tbe complexion of the next House. Indeed, there
was none from the beginning, as it
was quite evident that the country
would support the Government who
have so vigorously prosecuted the war
with the Transvaal and who have
been so determined to make another
Hoer war in South Africa an impossibility. All that was a foregone conclusion; but the wonder is why tbe
elections are dragged along from day
to day.
There is no explanation, and all
that can be said is that it is a way
the Hritish have. As a rule they are
slow to make changes. There have
been several radical election reforms
during' the past half century, but
simultaneous elections have not been
one of them. Abuses that were acknowledged to be such were abolished,
but this practice of prolonging the
elections was not regarded us one of
them. Canadian institutions were almost without exception patterned after those of Great Britain, and among
others wo adopted this practice of
scattering elections over a number of
days. After giving it a long trial,
we came to the conclusion that it was
not a desirable one. It was made the
instrument of undue iniluenee. Our
Governments were not above the
tempation to bring on those elections
at the outset that were considered to
be safe for themselves. A half a do/.-
en Ministerial victories In one day,
followed by another half or a whole
dozen the next, with perhaps a soli
tary Opposition success, was calculated to give the impression that tho
country was overwhelmingly Minis
terial, aud in all electorates there is a
considerable element that cares less
about being; right than being on tbe
winning side. This practice was
th,night to be so abused that an agitation began for simultaneous elee
tions, and after tho usual struggle
and delay in tlie ease of reforms the
present law was adopted.
Many of us are unablo toundei-
stand why the practice is still in
vogue in (Jreat Britain. Politics
thero are on a much higher plane
than In Canada, but in the face of the
returns it would be folly to pretend
that Hritish Governments do not yield
to the temptation to iniluenee public
opinion by bringing on the elections
in the order most favorable to themselves. Tbe earlier nominations wont
to the   Government  by  acclamation,
and the pollings for the lirst few days
were ill constituencies that were safely Unionist. The returns that put
the Conservatives so heavily in the
lead are n,, doubt having their Influence in the closer constituencies, and
there is just as little doubt they were
so Intended, Vet the practice provokes
nothing more than a mild protest
while the elections are still fresh in
the memory, and the losing party arc
smarting under their defeat. There
is no sustained Sgitatloi for a change
that would put the two parties on an
equality. This is the strange tiling
about it. and one naturally wonders
why it is h,k	
There   is   a   ehicl  amang us   takin'
notes for one of the brightest Weeklies
In Ontario. TheOrillia Packet. He has
been furnishing his paper with a report of our reception of the Governor*
General, to which ho appended the
following paragraph:
"As  1 do  not hold  a Government
olliee, I cannot lose my position
through Offensive partisanship, when
I make the predlotlon that a Conservative band will be at the helm in the
next Government of Canada. I am
not alone in holding ihis opinion, I
feel quite sure thai British Columbia
will go Conservative, Pour reasons, if
I judge rightly, have made the Liberal Government unpopular In this
Province, tl) Their railway police|
(!) tb.lr Oriental lminijfratio'11 policy;
(:i) refusing Hritish Columbia a representative in tlie Cabinet; (4) not giving the Province her just returns. The
Labor party, however, bold the 'balance of power,' and whichever party
can get the 'Labor Union' vote, will
prove the winner. In this constituency
of Yale-Cariboo, although the sitting
member is a Liberal, 1 haven't the
slightest doubt the new member will
be a Conservative. Hut your readers
will hear and read enough politics
from now till election time. I intend
working witli one object in view, and
that is the overthrow of a Government
of promises unfulfilled. "
Wc do not suppose that the members of the Labor convention that adjourned yesterday have any hope of
carrying' their candidate. To the
average outsider the nomination appears to have been manipulated in the
interest of the Liberal candidate. Mr.
Foley will poll a large vote in Kossland that would otherwise go to Mr.
MaeNeill, while it is by no means
sure he can hold the Labor vote of
Nelson and Slocan. Supporters of
Mr. MaeNeill will be stimulated to
greater effort than ever by the nomination of Mr. Foley.

������Yes." said my friend, when I remarked upon tlicin. 118 we sat before
the Opera, "our arrangements here in
Paris are practically perfect. After
the t'afe Terminus explosion my special departmenl was formed, and the

 nt Here is no single   Anarchist   in
tlie whole of I'aris that I could not
place my hand on within half Ml
hour. .My assistants, eighteen of
them, have brought the watching of
these gentlemen to a tine art."
Ami. notwithstanding this, two
attempts have been made upon the
Shah within four days!" I  remarked.
"Madmen!" he responded   quickly.
"They arc not   Anarchists,    How can
you control a madman, who. suddenly
seeing a monarch   driving past, pulls
out a revolver'.'   There   was   no   plot,
like that which   llresci  consummated
at Mon/a. His was a clover, deeply
laid plot, We knew several weeks
ago, by the usual activity and tension
In the circles wo were watching, that
Something was about to transpire. Indeed. 1 sent reports to London, Iierlin,
and Rome, asking whether the same
siefiit. had been observed In those cities. From Berlin oame a reply that
the same tension was observed there,
hut its cause could not be discovered.
Truth to tell, we suspected that nn
attempt was to be made either upon
one of the royalties visiting Paris to
see the exhibition, or upon the Herman Emperor, For that reason we
summarily expelled six undesirable
persons from I'aris, while the Berlin
police redoubled their precautions.
We never dreamed that King Humbert
was to be tbe object of the attempt. "
"Then the Italian police were negligent?"
"1 certainly consider that they

"Is there any truth in tlie rumor
that the plot includes other royalties?" i inquired,
"Most certainly. Within tho past
two days sonic very startling Information has reached   me.    To be brief,  il
was intended to assassinate the German Emperor, the young King of
Spain, the Emporor   of   Austria,   .'ind
the unfortunate King  Humbert.   The
plot was a wonderfully widespread
"tin, more formidable, I think, than
���iuy of the previous ones.    That It or

doubt | but in the light of later facts
we can now see thai one of tbe

rier who lived up iu the line. Constance, was found dead in the Seine
aud taken to the Morgue a fortnight
ago. We have since learned that, he
was removed by his fellow-conspirator ou account of a suspicion thai lie

"And was he'.'" 1 asked.
My friend carefully rolled his cigarette, but made no reply. Of course, I
did not press him, and be,on his part,
deftly turned the conversation, saying: "You must not think that, tho
attempts on the Shall were by Anarchists. Both were half-witted fellows
like Sipido,whose escape, by the way.

assassins. That, incident is to lie much
regretted The action of the Belgian
(lovernment has merely put a premium on regicide. I shoul 1 never be
surprised lo hear of an attempt
against their own King, for Belgium
is a veritable hot-bed of Anarchy."
"Hut this great plot, of which llresci was the Hrst-elioscn assassin'.' Will

"Yes, a good many, and in various
parts of the Continent and America,
In I'aris I snail make arrests when
I receive replies to certain telegraphic
inquiries I am making. Vou may afterwurd expect some curious details,
and then the public will not blame
the police���the French police, at any
rate���for inactivity. It may surprise
you, perhaps, to know that since Sunday week I have had twenty-three additional police agents at work night
aud day, and the information they
have collected shows that both day
and hour of the attempt were known.
Further a telegram in code dispatched
from Milan and giving the news
reached a certain Anarchist living in

NELSON,        -        B. C Nelson   Daily  Miner,   Friday  Evenwo,  October  5,  1900.
Mr. Frank W, Peters, assistant gen-
eral freight agent of the 0. P. U.,
who 1ms been on a trip through the
Boundary Country for the past week
In company with Mr. W. R, Machines, of Winnipeg, general freight
agent for the'comp any.has returned to
the city. In the course of an interview Mr. Peters said:
"We first went to Kossland and
there visited the l.e Roi and War
Eagle, which we found to be in the
best of condition. With the management of these mines we made arrangements for various matters in connection with the shipping of oro. At
tlrnnd Korku we found tbe smelter
working and it is in splendid condition. Tho work there, has been increased 000 tonH per duy. We visited
the Mother Lode mine, and of this
too much in its praise cannot be said
as it is in a most magnificent condition. There is an Immense body of
ore in sight, and much blocked out.
Iu order to have more room they are
now moving their ore to the bins at
the smelter at Greenwood. The 11. C.
Copper Company has been delayed
some in the construction of the smelter there owipg to the lateness of the
ai rival of the machinery. The smelter should be in operation by the end
of November. Its capacity will be
300 tons per day. We visited the site
of the smelter at Boundary Falls and
found it quite a suitable one. I had
advice today that the first shipment of
machinery for it was sent from Denver, Col., today. They should have
it completed by the end of the year.
The smelting capacity, with this and
tho other smelters of the Boundary
will then be large enough to reduce
all the ore that is produced in that
section. The distance for JJhauling-
from any of the mines will not exceed
25 miles and the freight rate can not
bo a very large facltor in obtaining
the precious metal from the ore and
with the modern equipments of the
smelters'] there should be no reaBon
why even the lowest grade ore should
not bring a profit to both the smelter
and mine owner. There are several
properties on the west fork of Kettle
Kiver that are showing up well and it
is said by prominent mining men
that they are equal to the mines of
the l'hoenix camp. If this is true
there will be enough oro to keep all
the smelters running to their fullest
capacity. Taking into consideration
the present conditions' of the mines of
Bast Kootenay, Slocan, Kossland and
the Boundary country, prospects were
never brighter than at present to
make Hritish Columbia famous as a
mining centre. I was never more impressed with the great advantages of
the country than I was during my lust

Mr. B. C. Kiblet left for Spokane
yesterday where he will spend a
week on professional business. In
addition to his other enterprises
Mr. Kiblet has secured the Contract
from the tramway to be built at the
Tamarac mines near Ymir. The tramway will be about a, mile long and
will run fiom the mine to tho Canadian I'aeilie Railway at the nearest con
venient point where a siding will he
put in to facilitate the loading of ore
from the mine. At present the mine
will only ship the ore as it is taken
from the mines, but it is probable
that a mill may be erected in the
near future. Work upon the tramway
construction will commence soon, as
the survey for the right of way has
been completed and   clearing   Is   now
going on.
Rossland. II. C, Oct. ,1.���The decision has been given iu the Le Roi appeal against the (lovernment assessment of Its ore values. Commissioner
Kcene has practically taken a fair
rate for freight and Binelting charges
nt 8r>.H7, and has assessed the Le Koi
mine tax at Bl,888 for the quarter end
ing June ���'!, 1900.
This was a compromise. The Le Koi
maintained that it was entitled to deduct a freight and treatment charge
amounting to SS.T."> from the market
value of the ore, . leaning the value
given to it Dy the smelter. This was
19,87. They tendered a check for
9242.35, being at the rate of one per
cent, mi the net profit made on 8,808
tons of ore after deduct ing ihe freight
and treatment from the smelter returns.
The assessor claimed that the value
of the ore should lie taken on the metal price nt New York and this,according to General Manager Bernard Mac-
Donald for the quarter ending December .11, 1890, was 81.1..10. Krom this
he proposed to deduct 85.00 as sufflol-
ent fur freighl and teatment, and collect one per cent, on ihe balance, $K,
Now the l.e Roi balance was 03 cents.
Commissioner Keene has assessed the
balance at 93.50, a compromise which
In in favor of the value placed upon
the ore by the l.e Koi, rather than
that assumed by the (lovernment. His
written decision has not yet been glv.
en, but tho figures have apparently
been arrived at by assuming the smelter value rather than the New York
value as the market rate and by assuming that 8.1.87 per ton was a sufficient charge for freight and treatment.
The Le Roi counsel held that the
rate $S.7"> was according to a.contract
with the smelter which was still in
force. The Government counsel
showed that the Le Koi shareholders
were owners of the smelter and, being
beneficiuries, were not entitled to
shelter themselves behind the contract. The commissioner had apparently held that the latter view is the
correct one. It is probable that the
Le Koi will appeal the decision.

Kossland, Oct. B.���The biggest mining or real estate deal that has been
made iu Kossland for some months
past was   closed   yesterday  when Lu-
cien Weyl of Nelson, representing the
Societe d'Etudos de la Colombia llrit-
anique of Paris, France, purchased
from T. II. Garrison and W. V. Clark
the Derby and Nelson No. 2 mineral
claims. The price at which the property changed hands was not made
public, but is understood to be about
900,000, of which half was paid in
cash and the balance will be paid by
October 1.1. The sale includes not
only the mineral rights of theso two
properites which adjoin the Legal
Tender, I'ack Train and Nick of Time
on the south, the Alice and the Spit-
zee on the west and lies within 600
feet of the Le Koi itself, but also the
title of 101! lots generally known as
the Derby addition.
* *   ���
Rossland, Oct. 5.���It was announced
here today that Mr. Paul Johnson of
Greenwood, the manager of the smelting department of the Itrltish Columbia Copper Company, Limited, has
offered the management of the Winnipeg mine in Wellington camp a
freight and treatment rate of 84 per
ton, to go into effect ou December 1.
This is the lowest rate offered yet for
the low-grade ores, and it makes 88
ore profitable. It is one of the most
important announcements that have
been made to the operators of the
Boundary district. The Winnipeg
has been paying a $.1.10 rate to Gran-
by smelter at Grand Forks. It is understood that Mr. Johnson has made a
similar offer to other mines in the
Boundary distiict.

Vancouver, B. C, Oot. .1.��� The second payment has been made on the
Britannia group of copper mines,
twenty-eight miles from Vancouver,
which are being purchased by the
Valantine syndictac of London, England. The payment wheb amounted
to $.1.000,was put up three days before
it was due, and the total amount,now
paid, has been 910,000, and this before
a tap of work has been done on the
The next payment, $.10,000. will he
made on January 1, but it is said that
if tho Knglish Syndicate find that the
fifty world famous experts who have
pronounced judgment on the piop-
erty, have been coireet, that the
whole purchase price will be paid on
that date, namely 8100,000 and $1,100,-
iioo in stock, in a new company capitalized at 8.1,000,000.
The Valentino syndicate has sent
out from London a mining expert,
whose name is sufficient in 1 nglund
to make or break millionaires in the
mining world, aud although the syndicate have bad American engineers
examining the property since April
last, they will bo guided by this
eminent mining engineer's judgment,
as to whether to drop the $10,000 already up, or put up their additional
84110,000. In the meantime Vancouver
waits breathlessly to hear the great
man's verdict, for it means in
creased population for Vancouver if
the big syndicate works the Britannia
group. It has been learned, however, whieh does not please Vancouver so well, that labor is so high
here, that it will pay to ship the matter produced by the mine from tho
company's concentrators to near-by
United States smelters probably Evcr-
rett. rather than erect a smelter to
handle the ore ou the grounds.

Vancouver is Making Another Attempt
to Establish One.
Vancouver, H. C., Oct. .1.���Another
attempt is being made in Vancouver
to start a mining association, the
aims and objects of which are: Tu
submit desirable amendments to the
Provincial mining laws for the consideration of the Hritish Columbia
legislature; to prevent wildcat
schemes being launched on the market
tothe discredit of the Province; to
provide a suitable meeting place
where ideas could be exchanged between mining men, papers read, and
lectures by eminent mining experts
arranged for; to establish a museum
of mineral specimens from all parts of
the world, the specimens to be prop
erly tubulated and displayed, and to
have available a general report on all
the different mining sections of Hritish Columbia and specimens of all the
rock and ore and to eventually establish a mining exchange. The fact that
II. Waters, II. E., late general manager and chief owner of the Britannia mine, is the promoter of the
scheme augurs well for its success.

are returning to Canada. It is estimated that to cable the whole list
would cost over 81,300. As. however,

their regiments, or with drafts of
their regiments, it is not likely the
list will be cabled As fast as the
iccounts can be made out the militia
authorities are settling the amounts

who did not draw the   whole   amount
credited them in London.   A  number
were paid yesterday, others are today
and the work will be continued until
all have been paid.
