decrease the profits of tho year very
materially.

Mrs. Olin Castle, last Juno, by cutting her throat with a razor, was
piacod on trial here today. The case
is one of the most remarkable in the
history of Kansas crimes. Miss Mor-

Brussols,   Nov.   21.���In   the Cham
bor of Deputies ycBterday  the Social-
Great Northern and N. P. Not to Com
bine Under   one Management.
New York, Nov, 21.���So many eon
Aiding stories have been told regarding the relations,present and prospective, between the Great Northern and
the Northern Paeifio, that a plain
statement of a few well authenticated
facts will not be amiss.
There is close "community of ownership'' in the two properties, but no
apparent design or desire on the part
of the controlling owners to have
these two systems managed in any
other way than as separate lines.
Although J. J. Hill is a very large
stockholder in the Northern Pacific,
"possibly the largest individual Btock
holder," and four or rive men hold
enough stock In oach company to practically give them control of both, the
two systems are not to be merged, and
tbe interests of one company will not
be subordinated to the other.
Existing statutes of northwestern
Matc. expressly prohibit tho consoli-'
dation or joint operation of two parallel and competing lines, and President Mellon of the Northern Pacific
remarked the other day that public
sentiment strongly upheld these laws.
It is an assured fact, however, that
while these lines will continue to engage in legitimate competition for
traffic, they will not be permitted to
"cut each ..other's throat" nor jepp
ardizc their respective revenues by
rate wars. '
Tho same permanent friendly relations will prevail iu northwestern.ter-
ritory, which is dominated by tbe
joint iniluenee of the Vanderbilts and
the Pennsylvania roads.
Contrary to certain reports, Great
Northern capitalists have not been reducing their holdings of Northern
I'aeilie stock, but quite the  contrary.
PORTUGAL   PAYS UP.
Delngoa Bay Awards Handed to the
Claimants Today. '
London, Nov. 21.���The award of $3,-
0112,800, with interest at Ave per cent,
from Juno 25, 1899, made by the arbitrators in the matter of the seizure
of the Delagoa Bay Railway by Portugal, will be paid to tbe claimants today or tomorrow. In adelition to the
principal of the award and the interest thereon, which makes a total of
about 8.1,000,000, Portugal paid 8140,-
noo on account of the seizure in 1840.
The Portuguese Government has deposited i-.ocurltieB valued at 85,000,000
In a London bank in the name of Ambassador Choato. A large proportion
of the award goes to the widow of Colonel McMunlock, an American, who
with a number of English capitalists
built the roail and operated It until
the Portuguese Government arbitrarily violated tho concession It had
granted and felled the line.
THE KLONDIKE OUTPUT.
Past Season's Gold Yiold Estimated
at 820,000,000.
Seattle, Nov. 21.���Dufflern Patullo,
chief clerk of the Gold Commissioner's office at Dawson, estimates tho
past season's Klondike output of gold
at 820,000,000, as against 817,000,000
for 1899, Next year's gold output of
tho Klondike, Patullo thinks, will

NEGLECTED NEEDS.
Mr. Galliher's friends are guilty of
eulpable negligence in not procuring
the fullest reports of Mr. Oliver's
speeches,in whioh he dwells with lov
tng appreciation on the Governing*
policy that haB been specially devlsSd
for the needs of the West. The people of the West���and In speaking of
the West in this connection it is understood of eourae that we refer par-
Mcralarly to this Provinoe of British
Columbia���have net known of such a
poliey, and have been crying out for
it. It is rather shabby of the Govern-
nent, If they have baked one in the
Cabinet oven, that they keep it concealed, or expose It only to the friendly scrutiny of admirers like Mr. 011-
rer. We In Yale-Cariboo would be
glad to decide the election on that
policy, or the record of the Government generally, and indeed have serious thoughts of doing so. In view of
this It is soarcely fair to Mr. Galllher
that the policy which is to serve the
needs ef the British Columbia people
shonld be kept in the dark. Mr. Oliver's exposition of it, If he makes one,
shonld be widely published, and a
copy of the poliey Itself should ho
nailed up at every mine In the const it
nenqj.
We do not know whether Mr. Oliver
is aware of it, but there has been a
strong belief prevailing here that the
needs of the West hare been aystemat
loally neglected. There has been no
policy devised in their Interest. The
question of Mongolian immigration,
which Is one of no little importance
here, has been ignored. Tbe Premier
promised five years ago to take It up
and deal with It as our people wished,
hat as soon as be got into oflice he
forgot the promise and nothing was
done. On the eve of another election,
which was to determine the fortunes
of himself and his party for another
term, he professed a renewed Interest
in the question, but that may mean
anything or nothing. During their
Are years of ofiloo the Liberals have
done nothing to develop the trade of
the I'aeilie They have not even treated as with any sort of consideration
in the expenditure of public money,
although wo contribute more largely
than any other Provinoe, head for
head, And not a hand has been turned
to help tbo groat lead industry In
whloh this constituency has a special
Interest. It was so easy to do something that would put lifo into It, but
In spite of appeals and romonstrances
the Government suffer It  to languish
Thero Is roally no reason why tho
eleotors of Yalo-Cariboo should vote
for the Government candidate, other
of course than the party loyalty which
carries so many Into the extremity of
political Indiscretion. Wo do not
want a man who will go to Ottawa to
talk and vote just as he is told by his
party leaders. We wnnt one with independence nnd courago enough to
stir up tho.Governnii'Ut to a sense of
th jso Western needs of which Mr. Oliver speaks, one who will tell tho Oovernment to their faces that thoy are
not doing their duty by us. It would
bo impossible to purine a worse policy
than to return a supporter of o Government already too strong, and who
have shown by their past that thoy
tako llttlo interost in our wolfare.
Our member should havu a mandate to
mako himself a thorn In thoir side,
until they were moved to tako our
needs Into consideration, anil not ono
who will go to Ottawa lo mako him
self an additional footstool for Ministers who care nothing for us.

othor night Sir Charles Tupper was
interrupted with the Inquiry: "Whnt
about tbat utterance of 'Laurier being
too British fur niu.' " Here Is tho reply:    "That was the result of a lively
'^agination, and   was a   base, lyi-sr

that, he said, was too British f<w
hiiu." The "lying ealumny" Is Mt
actively circulated IB Tala-Cariboo,
but wherever it appears it la as well
that its true character ehrald 1>e m��-
derstood. Sir Charles Tapper Is hardly tbe man to Bay, In its 'bald seas*,
that Sir Wilfrid Laurier Is more British than he is.
Whatever happens in the eleotloa
Mr. Galllher, who is the Qoverament
candidate, will bare tbe patronage ot
the constltueney. That Will snflei-
ently explain why 'Mr. Houston
marches in such close touch with the
Liberals in this contest. Where th*
boodle Is there or ther**hotrts h* will
bo found hovering.
'The retirement of A. H.   UaeKslll
from the Conservative tick*t ia Tele1
Cariboo," says The Veneearer World,
"only makes the eleotloa of th* Lib*
eral oandidate all the mere certain."
Walt and 6ee;a too great *oelrsur��_e*a
is often attended with mortinoatioo.
Mr. McKane is more Khan a Oonserra-
tive candidate; he ia a mining oandidate, and if there le on* thing this
constituency and this Provinoe require
at Ottawa It is a member who will
keop both Government and Parllameat
constantly reminded of the neede *f
the mining industry.
For a short time before the ���IMttM*
in the East Mr. Deane, who has *���*��
made secretary of the Mongolism On*
mission, at a large salary paid Vy ��h*
taxpayers ef the Dominion
a seeming regard for jra.Hs
and remained qulMaent. Row
his party is assured of another tern stf
offlce.he throws off his pi*M��_��e'lr_* H
openly and actively eaavMatag far flH

ous crime; but tha bread��Mb_H*r
of the Commission la as m��eh .eases I-

_00-EY ON CROSS-EXAMINATIONS
Mr. Dooley put down his newspapor
ith   the  remark:    "They   cudden't
et me into eoort as   a   witness;   no,
lr,   not  if   'twas to   hang   me   best
rind."
Tis hard enough," he said,"with
ewspapers an' clnsua offloers   an' th'
m'ry iv cab dhriverB to   live   down
e'er   past without   bein'   foorced   to
Ihrill it in   a   r-red  coat an' with  a
rasa band   ahead   before th'   eyes  iv
1 multitood.    I did it wanst; I'll do
no more.    Wanst I   was summoned
appoar.in th' high   temple lv   jus-
llou, where Timothy Duffy is  th' pre-
lldin'janius, as Uogan   says,   to   give
3 priceless tistymony   as to whether
' plumbin' in Havrigan's house was
tied to hold wather.  'Twas mo opinion, havin' had a handful iv thrumps
held in Uarrlgan's parlor   spiled  be
���alee Michigan dhroppin' through th'
ilin,' that   said   plumbin' was con-
rary to th' laws an'   ordinances   lv
country iv Cook. State iv Illinois,
, made au' provided,   an' th' same
,y I put on a   high hat   an' a   long-
iled coat an' left a -man   in   charge
mo business an' went down to Ilal-
iad Street an' sforo   to, as solemnly
I cud knowin' that  llarrigan wud-
n't pay th' rint annyhow. An' what
me iv it? I was two  minyits givin'
tistymony, an' two   hours thrying
convince   th'    honorable  court���a
afer be th' name iv   Puffy���an'   th'
jury   that   1   hadn't   stolen   th'
Irt  on   me   back   fr'rn   a   laundrhy
on.   Th'   lawyer   f'r   the   deflnse
Bbrongly intimated that  I was in th'
.B)eighborlmoil whin Charlie  Ross   was
kidnapped,   an' th'   jury aat to be al-
lowi'el to bring in   a   verdiot of manslaughter   without   exthra   pay.    As 1
��Wlnt out iv th'coort two or three wo-
Blen   in   large  hats hissed   me an'   a
man at th' dure   threatened me   with
an uuibrolly ontlll   I made a counther
dliiHiustliration with me foot.   Justice
says ye I     I   tell   ye   Uogan's r-right
whin    he   says:    'Justice   is   blind.'
.Blind she is, an' deef   an' dumb,   an'
has a wooden legl   Niver    agin   will
ithey dhraw   mo to a  eoort.    I'll tako

F "Here   In   th'    pa-apcr   they'se   a
���piece about a la-ad that had   throuble
Srith his vallay���"
I  "Whst's a  vallay?"   Mr. Hennessy
Inti'ri lipii'.i.
I "A vallay," Mr. Dooley explained,
P'ia a retired English gintleman hired
(by niillyonaires wlio ar-re goin' into
bankruptcy to wear their cloThou.
_._kod a millylonaire oomes into th'
wurruld an' naked his vallay laves
htm. Th' vallay'a a kind lv he-chambermaid that aeeB that th' millionaire doesnt' go to worruk iu bis night
Bhirt an' r-reads his letthers. I can't
mako out what all iv his jooties is.
fie rubB th' raillyionaire's head an'
rubbers on his love affairs, an' afther
a while laves him an' goes to worruk
f'r a sooiety pa-aper. 'Tis an ol' say-
in' iv Uogan's that no man is a hero
io his vallay. That's thrue. Th' vallay's th' hero.
"Well, this mllyionaire I've been
r-readin' about, he havo a vallay an'
,th' vallay lost his eye wondherln' who
th' lady was an' thin he dipped too
sthrong Into th' Florldy wather an'
th' millyionalro bounced him. He'B
tired Iii in out. 'Lord Roland,' be
eayB, 'go,' ho Bays. 'We've lived too
long together,' he says. 'People can't
tell ub apart, we stagger bo much
alike,'he says. 'I'm getln' so used
to ye that I have no tear iv ye,' he
eays. 'It was bad enough whin ye
give me bluo suepinders with me r-red
pantaloons,' he BajB, 'but,' he says,
'whin I asked f'r an orange an' ye
brought in th' bootjack,I felt that we
cud no longer asBocyate on terms of
equality,' he says. 'Yo'll havo to go
baok to th'house lv lords,' he says.
An' ho tired him out an' wudden't
pay him a clnt Iv wages he owed him
f'r th' rest lv his llfo. Ho Lord Roland sues him an' has him in eoort.
"Th' millyionalro thrlps In' think-
In'to hlinsilf: '"l'ls on'y a question
lv whether 1 shall pay this jook what
I promised him or what ho ought to
Ixpect fr'in a millyionalro. Do 1 or do
I not owo Lord Kolaud ��82 f'r ourry-

lavo It to an intclllglnt jury lv honest

"That's whoto he was wrong. He

ho explained to th' jury that he didn't

" 'Wo will paBB over th' question lv

th' lawyer. 'You were dhrunk in

millyioniare. 'Put it down that he's
always dhrunk,' says th' lawyer.
'Where did ye get ye-er money? He
don't know? Th' jury will take note
iv th' fact that he proha-ably stole It.
Ye-ie father is did. Did ye kill him?
'I think so.' 'Now that ye rsyfnBe
to pay Lord Roland what's net eom-
iu' to him, how about ye-er wife?'
'My wife isn't in this case,'says th'
prisonei. 'Th' divvel Bhe isn't,' Says
th'coort. 'Want ye to know that

'Isn't It thrue,' says th' lawyer,-

Lord Roland frequently peeked

NEWS OF
THE TOWN
The pictures left from Mrs. Lang-
ford's studio sale are to be seen in
Painton's window this week.
The ladies of the Congregational
Church g'vo a reception in the parlors
of tho church this evening to the
membors of the social club.
Hebden Bros, have been given the
contract fur tho plumbing in the new
General Hospital cuttage and William
Lawr has been awarded tho plastering contract.
A telephone message from Capt.
Gifford at the Silvor King mine this
morning gave the temperature np
there as 12 below zero, and snow fall
ing very heavily.
Mr. Horace D. Hume, manager of
the Hume Hotel, who has been in tho
General Hospital for ten days past
suffering from typhoid fever, is con
valcscing rapidly and will be out in a
few days.
The remains of Alexander Dono who
died at the General Hospital on Mon
day were shipped this morning by the
steamer Moyie via the Crow's Nest
line, to Montreal, where the inter
ment will take place.
Tho water on the electric light dam
was not at its usual level this morn
'ing and it is thought that the flume
which brings the water from White
water Creek was broken during the
recent storm by falling trees.' Three
or four of the City workmen were*sent
out to investigate and will make any
necessary repairs.
Several of tho hockey players of
Nelson have been enjoying themselves
for the past day or two on a very excellent piece of ice which has formed
over the reservoir up near the moun
tald station. The ice is smooth and
clear and is about four inches thick.
Yesterday afternoon a large number
of skaters climbed the hill and enjoyed themselves.
Because of the early advent of the
cold weather it is more than likely
that the Kirkpatrick-Wilson-Clements
block will note be ready for occupation
before the latter part of December or
tbe first of January. Tbe high winds
which began to blow last Friday pre
vented the putting In of the plate
glass windows and work on the interior had to be discontinued entirely.
If there is not a very warm spell
between today and the end of the
week, there should be skating In the
rink on Stanloy Street by Saturday at
thepatcst. Since Monday night every
blt^of cold weather has been taken advantage of and a very fair bottom has
been made. Special attention is being paid to the curling sheets and
they too should bo ready for use by
the ond of the week.
The officials of the local Baptist
Church havo beon notified that their
how pastor, ltev. John Hurtt Morgan,
at present pastor of the Baptist
Church at Aylesford, N. S., will arrive in Nelson some timo during tbe
second week of Decembor. Rev. Mr.
Morgan is looked upon as ono of the
cleverest young men of that donoini-
n.-it i.m. and the local members are
looking forward to tho building up of
thoir church during his Service   here.
The apathy which had made Itself
apparent in the ranks of the Conservative party in Nelson has disappeared
and a great deal of interest ia being
taken In the candidature of John Mo-
Knne. Tho committe rooms in the
Houston block aro filled with workers
every evening and much progress is
being made. Mr. McKane is expected
in Nelson in a week or ten days when
a meeting wil. bo held In the Opera
House to which Candidates Gallihoi
and Foley will be invited.
"* Tho members of tho Baptist Hun-
day School are busily engaged in ro-
heursing for the production of the
cantata entitled "Tho Crowning of
Christmas," whloh will bo given on
thu owning of Friday, December 21.
The cast is a most excellent oue anil
no pains aro being spared hy tho committee in charge to make the affair a
, groat success. Thu coimnittcu consists
of Mrs. S. L. Lester, Mrs. S. Smith,
Mrs. J. Laing Stocks and .Mrs. 1_. il.
Mel ie-1 iniel. On the evening before
the presentation ol the cautata, the
Bcliolars will participate iu a social
tea.
It is quite probable that the Council
to be elected next January will be
asked by n large number of citizens to
pass a by-law regulating tlie charges
of bus and hack drivers, and licensing
every bus anil hack doing business in
the city. There have huen many complaints of late In connection with
charges of certain hack drivers. Tin;'
complaint Is nut that they charge too
miie-li. but is rather that there is no
uniform scale,and a man never knows
how much he most give up If he doos
not always ask the price iu advance,
Some people pay 88 cents for a trip
In a bus to or from on* of the stations,
while others are ehiirgeil 60 Bents,
One man says that he once paid ���::,
r.nts for a  trip from  (be  Mountain
station to the Hotel Hume, and that a
short timo afterwards he had occasion
to make the same trip with his wife
and was then charged a dollar, 50
cents each. If that was the regular
charge he said he waB perfectly willing to pay it, but he didn't like the
idea of being forced to pay more
than other people, or moro than he
had paid at another time himself.
The Council will be asked to fix a uniform scale of prices, which will be
agreeable to hack men and patrons
alike.
The Nelson Chess and Checker Club
held its fourth weekly meeting last
night and had a splendid ��.voning.
Tho Checker tournament is growing
more interesting with overy game and
the contests last night wero hard
fought ones. At tho conclusion of last
night's play the five leaders stood as
follows: E. Smith, 850 per cent; J.
llardie, 815 per cent. ; J. Tuttle, 565
per cent. ; U. Clark, 537 per cent, j J.
H. Wallace, 530 per cent. The mail
chess game the club is conducting
with J. R. nunnex, Erie, grows more
interesting and is now at a oritical
stage.
Professor Robertson of the Agricultural College at Ottawa will deliver a
lecture In the Presbyterian Church
school room on the evening of Friday
tho 23rd. Professor Robertson is
brother of Mr. Robert Robertson of
Nelson, and is greatly interested in
the work of the Women's Council nn
der whose auspices the lecture will
be given. No admission will be
charged and the subject of the evening
will be "Technioal Eduoation." The
ladies of the Council extent a cordial
invitation to all those who are interested in the works of the Council and
trust that Professor Robertson will
be greeted by a large audience.
The large boiler for tho Silver King
mine which was taken from Nelson
Friday last on its way to the mine is
still on the road and it will be two or
three days yet before it is delivered.
It reached the snow line Sunday and
notwithstanding the heavy wind was
successfully transferred to sleighs
The road, however, has been so heavy
that no effort has yet been made^to
move it further up. As soon as the
snow is packed and the road in good
condition three of Steeper &Co.'s best
teams will be hitched to the sleigh6
and there will be no more long stops
until it reaches its destination. Some
of the smaller pieces of the new machinery reached the mine today.
Mr. G. K. Tackabury, local agent
of the Spokane Falls and Northern,
who has been spending several weeks
with his relatives at Lincoln, Neb.,
returned to Nelson last evening accompanied by Mrs. Tackabury. Mr.
Tackabury was thero during the presidential election and in speaking of it
this morning, he said: "Well, it is
just this, it was a complete walk
over for the Republican party. In
Mr. Bryants own state, Nebraska, and
even in his precinct in his native
town, Lincoln, ho was defeated by
good round majority. The wholejcause
was that every town in enjoying the
host of prosperity. Everybody seems
to be over-joyed with the good times
and apparently nothing could persuade
the people to vote for Bryanism.'
The meeting held in W. A. l.'alll-
hcr's committee rooms last night was
very well attended and from a Lib
eral standpoint was a splendid sue-
coss. Frank Oliver, M. P., of Alberta,
and M. _'. J. Deane, of Kamloops,
wero the speakers of the evening and
wero introduced by Chairman James
Kanneiman. Mr. Deane told of the
condition of affairs political in other
parts of the district, and Mr. Oliver
delivered a genuine campaign speech.
Mr. Oliver is a splendid speaker but
the conviction which his utterances
carry was lost last night because" he
was talking to an audience composed
wholly of Liberals. Suoh a speech
should havo been delivered to an audience of undecided eloctors. There it
would havo been of greater value to
tho causu which Mr. Oliver espouses
for it might have made some converts.
The Miner has been approached on
several occasions to call attention to
what many people have for a long
time Considered a publio nuisance.
Tho nuisance is a mnn. Sober he appears to know how to conduct himself,
but when ho becomes Intoxicated,
which is about once a week���Saturday
nights���he talks so loudly that In tho
stillness of the early hours of Sunday
morning be can be heard for blocks
away. And his language during these
drunken spells would not bo permitted in tho toughest dive In Nelson. It
Is of the filthiest and most profane
character nnd people rooming in
block! on Baker Street or who are
forced to be out late must listen to it.
The police know who the man is and
should take some action. If they
don't some citizen will swear out a
warrant for his arrest. There is not
a public place In Nelson in which this
same person has not made himself objectionable and people are growing
heartily sick of him.

In many ways has tho war in South
Africa had rather a bad effeot upon
the mining industries of British Columbia, and more especially is this
noticeable in diamond drilling. Mr
Fred Stone of Spokane, who formerly
did a large amount of diamond drill
lug at the Silver King mine and who
is at present carrying out several contracts, in the Couor d'Alene and Rosa-
land districts and who is about to
take a contract fordoing similar work
at Ainsworth, is authority for tho
statement that the work now costs 84
per foot while before the war it could
be done for $1.50 per foot. The advance
is due to the advance in the price of
black diamonds which are imported
from South Africa for drilling pur
poses. Before the trouble started there
they could be obtained at the low
price of 816 per carat, but now they
cannot be had for less than $7(1. Mr.
Stone did not say what it cost to prepare a drill to be used by steam but
he said that it cost over $1,000 to
manufacture a hand diamond drill.
Even at the prioe of $70 per carat it is
exceedingly difficult to obtain the ne
eessary supply of demands. It is well
known fact that all work has practi
cally been stopped at the diamond
mines of the Transvaal but as the
war is about over it is expected that
it will be started and vigorously pros-
eouted. This will relieve the long felt
strain upon this most ��� important
branoh of mining in British Columbia
and the western United States.
��� ���   ���
Mr. Nicholas Flood Davln and wife
will arrive in Nelson on tonight's
boat en route to the Coast. Mr. Annable-of the Opera House, has arranged

Mr. B. Thomas of Vancouver, a
mining engineer, arrived in the City
yesterday. Mr. Thomas is engaged in
reporting on different mining properties throughout British Columbia
for various mining companies. He
leaves this afternoon for Kaslo and
from there will visit tbe Great Western and other properties in tbe vicinity of the Payne and make reports on
them for Vancouver companies. Mr.
Thomas is also interested In the Kootenays. He has recorded an option on
(he Robin Hood group on Cottonivood
Creek at an earlier date than the one
taken out by Mibs Leigh Spencer.
On this property three tunnels have
been run to the respective depths of
40, 15 and 50 feet. Sometime ago as
says were made from tbe ore and gave
returns of $37 in gold but it is expected that later assays will give $47. Mr.
Thomas his also a bond on the Cartage claim, which is situated near the
Ymir mine in the Ymir district. On
this property he will begin work
about the first of January. About 50
feet of tunnelling has already been
dono, and a vein 15 feet in width has
been uncovered. It is believed that
this vein is the continuation of the
same lead as that of the Ymir.

From Coopcrsvllle, Mich., comes
word of a wonderful dsoovery of a
pleasant tasting licmjid that when
used before retlriug by any one troubled with a bod cough always ensures
a good night's rest. "It will soon
cure the cough too, "writes Mrs S.
Himelburger, "for three generations
of our family have used Dr. King's
New Discovery for Consumption and
never found It's equal for Coughs and
Colds." It's an unrivaled life-saver,
when used for dosperate lupg diseases. Guaranteed bottles 50 couts
and 81 at the Canada Drug and Hook
Co.   Trial bottles free.
