 Daily Edition No. 911
Nelson,   British Columbia, Saturday Evening,   December 15,  1900.
Eleventh  Year
OLD LONDON
AND ITS DOINGS
Parliament  Prorogued With
the Shortest Speech
on Record.
Bobs' Return to London Will
Be Occasion of Oreat
Enthusiasm.
London,   Dee. IB.���Parliament was
dismissed today until tlio   middle   of
February   with the   reading   of  tlie
shortest of tlie Queen's speeches. It
was as follows:
"My Lords and Gentlemen���I thank
yon for the liberal provision you have
made for the expenses incurred by the
operations of my armies in South
Allien and China."
The proceedings today In tho Mouse
of Commons wero a repetition in niin-
aturo ot the debates of the session.
The Ministers were heckled, the war
was denounced and Mr. Joseph Chamberlain was further attacked. Hot
tho war funds were linally voted after the Secretary of Slate for War,
Mr.Win. St. .lohn Broderlck, bad given an assurance that tho Government,
during recess, would cordially cooperate with lieneral Kitebncr in an
endeavor to end the war.
Particularly stinging   were   tne remark's   of   Mr.   .lohn   Itryan-lloherts,
Liberal,    lie declined   that   the Hritish treatment of women in South   Africa was an outiage  on   civilization,
and that it   was   blasphemy   to  bold
Christian services   lu St. Paul in con-
neotion with the return   of Lord Bob-
erts, while there wero   such   proceedings in South Africa.    Mr.   Broderlck
hotly   denounced  Mr. Bryan-Roberta'
charges, asserting thnt it   was  urlml-
nal to   make allegations which   could
Heel be proved,   but   whicli,    however,
would be telegrnplieil   to   .South Africa to ineicasn   the discontent existing
there.    He held up Mr.  Bryan-Huberts
to   the  censure   and    reprobation   of
nearly every member of the House   of
Commons.    These remarks were greeted with cheers.    Mr.   Brodorick   then
repeated that the I lovernment did not
elesire to pursue a policy which would
make   it moro   dillieult for tho   Boers
to cease fighting.and that the (lovernment abided   by   the   declarations   of
Mr.   Chamberlain.    The   session   was
suspended until two o'clock in the afternoon   when   both   Houses met  nnd
were prorogued.
The dreary prospect of interminable
war in South Allien and increased
tnxatlon at lioine is no detriment to
Christmas   gayeiy     'I'he   shows    and
markets are brighter than ever,  gay
throngs till the streets, business is at
top notches, the theatres are crowded.
Thousand! of people are preparing
tn invade I,.melon to welcome Lord
Roberta home. The number of spectators of "Bobs'' march to St. Pauls,
accompanied by the Prime of Wales,
January 2nd, is likely to bieak all
records. The ofllolals are already be-
selged for tickets for the thanksgiving service and window owners are
anxiously awaiting the announcement of the line of march.
Th" British Admiralty has thoroughly wakened up to tho importance
of the submarine and similar methods
of warfare. It lias been arranged to
test Varscar's Invention for steering torpedoes and sub-niarino boats
hy means of the wireless telegraphy
"perilled by Mr. A. 0. lliggs, the
united States Consul at Weymouth.
The I'nited States Commander (Hover
is following up the matter closely.
Germany has made an offer for tbe
German rights. The invention has
been considerably altered since it was
Hist shown to the German Government, '."ho inveutor now expresses
the belief that the danger of interference or "jnmmin"" as it is technically called has been eliminated. As recent Marconi experiments prove, Instruments not exactly tuned to tbe
same note can have no iniluenee over
others, regardless of the power of the
batteries,Mr. iliggn provides each tor-
potli) iioat with a different note and
directs It from a Bhip or the land, on
or under water towards the obje_t it
is desired lo destroy, by means of the
tame current whereby wheless messages me transmitted.
A special despatch fiom Washington
complains that the London desp-tcli-
es dealing with the Niearngnaii Canal
do not  give any  Indication  of the
Views of Lord La'nsdowiic, Lord Salisbury, or any authoritative person.
It may be said that Lord l.ansdowne has been given an opportunity
to communicate bis views on the matter fiul he lias definitely refused, remarking that he did not wish to attempt lo interfere, eovortly or otherwise in tbe formation of American
public or legislative opinion. Helms
not even   dlsutiHscd   the   canal   in his
frequent conferences this week with
the United state's Ambassador Joseph
Choate. Great Britain's decision,
donbtleBS,   will   be   nrrivVd   at,   curly
only after a Cabinet conference. What
Lord Lansdowne will advise his fellow Cabinet Ministers to do. depends
entirely on the final shape in which
the truuty is returned.   As the matter
stands, it would be equally unsafe to
say bo will counsel Its rejection or
acceptance. Though us he follows
tbo   ideas   wl   D '   ������-"(l
among tbo provincial library
officials,he will fall back on tlie _iay-
ton-liulwer treaty and reject any
modifications of the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty.
Mr. Robert Arlington, the eccentric
gentleman of Leeds, who lived in a
miserly manner in order to he able to
devote bis wealth to foreign missions,
left over one milion pounds to charities of all kinds. He made bis fortune out of a brewery and lived in
one, filthy room, containing about as
much furniture as a pauper's hovel.
Disappointment in love is said to have
been responsible for his extraordinary life. This tall, spare man wore
a slouch hat and dressed in frayed
garment, made in tho style of the sixties and was never known to give
away a penny in his life time.

NORTH STAR
ft.1        DIVIDEND
LIFE OF SECLUSION.
New York, Dec. 15.���The body of
Confederate Brigadier Oeneral German Bins has been found in Black
swamp, four miles from Morristown,
N. ,1. fie was known as the liermit
of Wanoug Mountain. For 35 years
Bins bad lived a solitary life on the
side of Succnssunna Mountain. He
had little to do with anyone and his
retreat was fur removed from the
nearest house. His cabin was found
in ashes by those who went to it after tlie body bad been identified.
Bins made his appearance on the
mountain in 1HI15. When be first came
he wore a gray uniform and on it
were the stars of a Brigadier-General.
Ten years after Bins settled on the
mountain his life story came out
through no fault- of his. William
Becker, a veteran of the Union Army,
who had occasion to visit Atlanta iu
1876, commenced an investigation and
found from the Confederate sources
that Bins had enlisted as a minor ollicer soon after Sumter was fired on.
lie rose rapidly and at the close of the
war held the rank of Brigadier-General. At the outbreak of tbe war Bins
was a well to do planter in middle
Georgia. While he was in the arm"
his two children died. When Sherman marched to the sea,leaving Georgia desolate, Bins' home was one of
those left in ashes. Mrs. Bins bad
lied before the arrival of Sherman and
joined the refugees. Exposure and
hardship brought her to her death.
When ho returned to bis plantation
be found the ashes of his home, the
graves of bis children and near them
the grave of his wife, whom faithful
slaves had carriod to the plantation
and buried. Oeneral Bins ut onco left
and until Mr. Becker informed them
his friends did not know what had
become of him. No one knows how
tbo old man came to his death.

Rich East Kootenay Property
Pays Its Third One
Today.
Prospects of East Kootenay
as Viewed by Mr. Frank
Robblns.
Mr. Frank Robbins, manager of the
North Star mine, situated about SO
miles north of Cranbrook along the
KimbeiTey branch iu the St. Mary's
River district, iB iu Nelson for a few
days, his principal business here being to attend the Mine Owners' Association meeting. Mr. Robbins is greatly pleased at the way the property
is showing up and speaks in the highest terms of that distiiet. In speaking
in a general way of that section, be
snid that it was comparatively unknown and had not received a great
deal of attention and yet there were
in it three of the greatest producing
properties east of Rosslund, namely
the Sullivan, North Star, and St. Eugene mines. From these three nearly
0,000 tons per month uro being shipped. The North Star is a great property and at present more development
ib being carried on than mining work
proper. About .5 miners are engaged
in the workings. Tho ore taken from
the mine is a clean galena with no
concentrating ore. The oro is deliver-
eed to tbe railroad by a trumway with
the capacity of 10 tons per hour.
The property is Jnlso supplied with
a hoist, air compressor and good
machinery for its development Tbe
shipments are about 2,000 tons per
month. With only development woik
being carried on, and the greater DOT.
tiou of it being done during the last
year,tbe property has now declared its
third dividend whieh will be paid
today. The amount is three cents per
share, while a consideiable amount
of capital is being placed in the treasury for the opening up of tha mine on
a much larger basis. In the workings
a large amount of ore is already in
sight, whieh goes to show that the
payment of a dividend will be continued for a long time to come.
The Sullivan group, which Is operated by Spokane parties, situated in the
same district and ubout three miles
from the North Star, is also showing
up most satisfactorily. This is alBo a
galena proposition, and contains no
concentrating ore, but ull is of a high
grade. From 50 to 00 men are engng-
ed in it development. It is equipped
with the latest models of machinery,
consisting of hoists, compressor, and
development facilities. The mine is
producing about 00 tons or three carloads per day. This mine- bus ulso an
enormous body of ore in sight, and
the monthly returns brings to its
owners, now, and will for some time
to come, a handsome profit. These
two mines are the only producers in
thut immediate vicinity, but a number of other properties nre being developed by Spokune capitalists. The
shipping facilities are now most satisfactory, and this is due greatly to
the enterprise of the Canadian Pacific,
which has placed a daily passonger
and fast freight service to that district. This gives to the mine owners
easy transportation und they can
readily place their ores at tho various
smelters. In former days the ore from
the North Star lind to bo taken 17
milos by boat. The Sullivan being
three miles from the track,the ore has
yet to be transported that distance in
wagons and considerable difficulty is
encountered. The company is thinking of constructing a narrow guage
road ovor that distance in the near future so that ready transportation can
bo obtained.
The other properties that nre being
developed in the district aro not numerous but energetic work is being carried on. Judge Waltfield of Spokane,
has let a large contract for diamond
drilling on several properties near the
North Star aud good reports ure looked for In the near future. The Hastings Syndicate are also developing
several properties in the near vicinity. The Mount Sicker nnd B. C. Development Co. is also working a group
of four claims, situated near the Sullivan group. The three companies,
North Star, Sullivan nnd Mount Sicker, ore doing extensive work to obtain water power from Mock Creek to
produce power for each of the properties. The power thus obtained will
be converted into electricity. The
Hume tc the North Star will bo one
mile long and will give 300-horso
power. The Humes to the other properties will be somewhat longer and
give a grcuter amount of power.
At the southern portion of this silver lead producing district nnd near
the town of Moyie is situated the well
known St. Eugene mine. The ore of
thiB is not of the snmo character as
the two other producers although It
contains a good quality of clean ore
and a still larger quantity of concentrating ore. Krom 250 to 300 men aro
engaged nt the property. The development Is being curried on Steadily
and satisfactory results ure being obtained. It is estimated that about BOO
loos of ore aro being  broken  in  tbo
mine per day. Although these mines
have come to tbe front during the last
year only now they are all on a dividend basis, which clearly shows the
great wealth of the mineral deposit of
Fast Kootenay. In the district there
are three towns which have beeu
greatly benefited nnd Drought to the
front by the development of these
mines, 'i'bey are Moyie,Cranbrook and
Klmberley.
As these three mines have proven
to be so rich, and huve made sucb ,
large returns it is wondered at that
the district has not received the atten-
tion of the prospector There nre yet
unlocated hundreds of good properties.
Tho mineral deposits are also reached with but little expense and good
returns are obtained in only a short
time. It is thought by tho mining
men of that district that in the coming season there will be more attention paid to the district.and in a short
time it will advance to the front
among the mining centres of British
Columbia.
��� ���   ���
Mr. McGnire of the Molly Gibson
mine arrived in the City today. He
stated that since tho operation of the
new tramway regular shipments have
been made. During the last week
six carloads of ore were shipped. An
additional 35 men have been added to
the force working nt tho mine, and
now    development    will    be   pushed
rapidly.

The following report of a meeting
of the Highland; (Kootonay, B, C.)
Mining Company. Limited, makes interesting rending as showing just
what can be done in tbo way of mining in British Columbia when tho
proper people ure in charge of affairs:
The first ordinary general, or statutory, meeting of the above named company was held at Winchester House,
London, on November 19th.
Mr. Charles Edward Shepheard
(chairman of the company) presided,
and Mr. (leorge II. White (secretary)
having read the notice of meeting,
the chairman said:
Great progress has been made with
the equipment of the mine, and we
are considerably in advance of the
stage usually reached by a mining
company after only four months1 existence. The company was registeieil
on July 20th with a capital of ��40,-
000 in ��1 shares, and the prospectus
was issued four days later. It, was
therein stated that tin? directors would
not go to nllotment on u less subscription thnn 24,000 shares. We went to
allotment on July 30th witll 25,007
shares subscribed, and since thnt date
we have allotted a further 7,050
shares, bringing up the total shares
subscribed for to 32,057. All these
shares have been paid up lo tlie extent
of 15s., and Beveral holders havo already paid ill full. Tin ce>ii,;,u.iy has
paid its own expenses of formal ion.
and has incurred no promotion expenses whatever. There aro no vendors1
shares and every share issued has
been paid for. From tin' lirst everything in connection witli the company
has been paid for in cash. We bought
the property for a cash price of ��16,-
500, the negotiations being carried
through by Mr. E. Woakes, who obtained u reduction from tbe original
price of more than ��5,000. We have
paid for all the expenses of equipment,
as they fell due, in cash, anil arrangements have been made to similarly
meet all existing contracts. After
puying for everything so fur us can at
present be estimated, including additional ground acquired, we shall be
left with a very satisfactory balance
in hand. I'he property we originally
acquired, which is all Crown -granted, extends to about 1(10 acres, but
since then we have added to it two
more claims covering so far as wc can
judge ut present, uhout 70 to so acre's
more. The smaller of these is a piece
of ground adjoining the mill site
which Mr. Woakes, recognising its
vnluo to us, sluiced out under the
name of the Rubber Neck, just before
other purties who were after it. We
ure indebted to him for thus getting
it without payment. The other claim,
which we believe is upwards of 50
acres, is known as the Kootenay, and
a glance at the plan will show you
Its value to us. Thu Chairman then
proceeded to__rend extracts from a report, dated Octobei 31st last, of Mr.
Woake's. Tliis report was most encouraging und comprehensive. "We
believe," says Mr. Woakes, "that the
Highland Mine docs possesses the conditions necessary to make n successful low-grude proposition. The mine
is situated 1,200 feet above the Kootenay Lake, with which it is now con
nocted by an aerial tramroad 4,000
feet leng. The concentrator Is situated on the shores of the lake where a
whnrf bus been erected so thut ull ore
can bo taacn directly from tbo lower
levels of tbe mine nnd placed on
barges on the lake at a probable cost
of 20 cents a ton. When once the
mine bus established itself as u regular and lnrge shipper il is believed
that better rules cun be obtained than
have at present been offered. The
former owners of the property had
ovory conlldenee in the mine, and had
spent quite largo suniB on its development) they,however, suw that to work
It on n large scale so us lo produce
adequate prolits %vouhl requite a further considerable outlay of capital.
Work wus started nt the mine on August 10th, the Idea being lo start to
ship clean ore as soou to possible in
order to take advantage of high prices
now ruling, while due regard was
taken for the future working of the
mine. Every thing is in a unst fur-
word state,'nnd I hope In he alehe lo
cublfl you before ihe dale of this meeting that ore has been shipped,
The Highland vein (iiu be traced
fer a distance of over 3,000 feet on the
surface; In nearly every Initanoe' in
which open nils have been made on
the outcrop, ore bus been found. . .
Owing to the large amount of lurfaoe
works necessary to be completed !�����
fore the winter, and to enable us lo
got into shape, for regular shipment!,
tho mine work bus not been pushed,
only that; being dune which was ne
cessui v to enable   us   to open out and
ham Mr the ore already  developed in
an economical manner.   These works
consisted in the starting of the No. 1
tunnel 100 feet above the No. 2, or
main tunnel, ami also the commencing of No. .'I tunnel loo feet below No.
:.'.    . .    The amount of drivage al
ready done in No. 1 tunnel has proved
tlie existence of several hundred tons
of ore not counted ill tbe original estimate. A lind of ore was also recently made 05,feet up No. 1 raise in
the footwall. where two feet of solid
ore was found with from two to three
feet of concentrating ore.
The clean ore was of exceedingly
line grain witli a silky lustre; It essayed Pb 70.1 per cent., Arg.,10.8 o_s.
It will take about four months to
drive No. II. tunnel under the oro
shoots of tbe upper level. .Should
these prove to go down it would be
advisable to start a lower tunnel for
which there is a good site BOO feet below No. s. Thero is another and parallel vein to the Highland 2550 feet
to the west. This has been only opened in two places, and shows a few
inches of solid ore in both. As soon
as the work is well progressed on the
Highland vein we propose starting to
drive on the west vein a tunnel on the
same level us No. .'1. . . A contruct
was entered into, on September 3rd,
for supplying the machinery for a 100-
ton concentrator, which may cost
about 810.000. Should we not be
unduly delayed by non-arrival of machinery, the concentrator should be
running some time in January. The
whole plant is driven by water-power,
and includes an electric light. . . .
Tlie value of tlie cloun ore has been
taken at 38.4 ozs. silver per ton and
00.7 per cent lead. These values are
taken from the average of the assays
of the ore visible in tlie tunnels and
raises, and are not the values of tbe
picked clean ore, but should represent
fairly well shipments of clean ore on
a huge scale. It may be taken that
tho clean ore runs '_ oz. of Bilver to
the unit of lean. . . The average of
tlie concentrate samples,   which   were
concentrated   by band-panning, gave
.'ell per cent. Ph.-14 o/.s. Arg. ; one of
these samples.that from the east vein,
contained a large proportion of iron
pyrites and some zinc; this brought
down the aveiage of tlie whole. Sly
opinion is that we shall produce t��vo
classes of concentrates, tbe one nearly
pure galena, which will approximate
in value very nearly to the olean ore;
the second will contain probably from
lo to 15 per cent of iron at the expense
of lead,and will, therefore, assay lower, approximating in value the concent rati, sample above quoted. The
second-class ore sliould be smelted at
a lower rate than tbe first-class ore;
iu fact, tlie representative of tbe smel
ter has stated that be cun certainly
make a better rate should we be able
to produce such a class of ore. At
present rates the ore should net 820.55
per ton from smelter, whilst at tbe
lowest quotations _sincc 1807 it should
net"8I5.SS per ton. The cost of mining, ou a basis of 100 tons per day,
should not bo more than 811 per ton ;
of this 100 tons probably in tons
would be clean ore, the   reuiniuing 00
tons concentrating, which at s to l
would give Is tons of clean concentrates per day. The 510 tons of concentrates and BOO tons of clean ore
would thus cost So,nod per month to
mine and place at tho concentrator ; the
ooel of concentrating would be about
50 Cents per ton ut lirst, and could
probably be reduced to 40 cents; or
oven less, later on. Thus the cost of
mining and concentrating ,'lou tons of
olean ore and 540 tons of cunceutrntcs
per month would   be   110,860,   which.
with another 1500 per month added for
management and oflice expenses.

uiuiiiiatiiin 1 need not speak; it
meant that within four months of the
dale of registration of the Company
we arc commencing to get returns
from the mine. I think you will ngiee
with mc that we have mnde a most
satisfactory start, and that it is rarely Ihe case thai a company,ut its statutory inciting, cun show such n record eef work done. The Directors believe that the equipment of this mine
will Compare favorably with that of
any other of the same kind in British

made we are entirely indebted to onr

MANY KILLED
AND MISSING
Lord Kitchener's Account of
the Disaster to British
Arms.
Eighteen Officers and Over
550 Men are Reported
Missing.
London, Dec. 15.���Lord Kitchener
reports thut IS officers and 550 men
are missing from (leneral Clement's
force. Thoy consist of four companies of the Northumberland Fusiliers.
Judging from the message these were
captured by the Boers. Clement's casualties December CI amounted to live
ollieers und nine meu killed and many
apparently wounded.
Lord Kitchener's message to the
War Olliee is as follows:
"Pretoria, December 14.���Clements
brought in his force to Comiunndo
Nek unopposed. The casualties were,
1 regret to say, heavy, killed five officers and nine of othur ranks, missing
18 officers nnd 555 of other ranks.
These latter wero four companies of
the Northumberland Fusiliers, who
were stationed on tbe bill and somo
Yeomanry and other detachment sent
up to support them. Names and nature of wounda are being telegraphed
from Cane Town. Broadwood's brigade took no part in the engagement.
Tho Boers suffered severely. Knox
drove Dewet north to the Thalia.
N'Chu, Ludybrund line, which waB
held by our troops. Dewet's force
abont 3,000 Btrong made several attempts to get through during the
day, asslsteil by a force of Boers operating from the north. These attacks
were driven buck, though some of the
I'.-.''!-' of tbo south were able to get
through tbe lino."
Wiring later. Dec. 14. Lord Kitchener reports that while passing the
lines in the neighborhood of Thalia
N'Chu Dewet's force lost considerably. The South Africnn Light Horse
and Thorneycroft's Mounted Infantry
captured u fifteen pounder taken at
Dewetsdorp, a pom pom, several wagons with ammunition, 22 prisoners
und some horses und mules. A portion of the enemy has not been able to
pass north.
London. Dec. 15.���Oeneral Kitchener's supplementary despatch referring to the disaster at the Magaltes-
berg, forms yesterday's most pessimistic fears and demonstrates that the
eatnstrophe is among tho worst of the
war. The mutter was brought up In
the House of Commons today by the
Secretary for War, Mr. Sl. John Bro-
dertok. lle had no information to
ndd except that thu wounded numbered six ollieers and 45 meu.
London, Dec. 15.'���Mr. Kruger and
Dr. Leyds. who dined last evening at
tbe Palace, says the correspondent of
the Daily Mail at The Hngue,on bearing of the British disaster at Nooige-
dacht, wero quite unmoved. Mr. Kruger reasserted his complete confidence
in ultimately forcing England to in-
itiatu un acceptable settlement.
LOCAL POLITICS.
No Othor Mayoralty Candidate Yet in
the Field.
Nothing new has transpired today
in connection with municipal politics,
iii..--��� ��� who lind hoped to induce Mr.
John A. Turner to enter the field
huve given up hope of success and are
looking about them for another candidate with very little prospect of suo-
cess In that direction. It is generally
agreed among the business men of tha
City thnt It would be foolish and useless to oppose Aid. McKillop. The
only persons who favor a second can-
didutu are tho present Mayor and
his lieutenants and they look at tho
mutter not in the light of public spirited citizens but rutber in the light
of "ward politicians" and seekers after the spoils of office.
Mr. McKillop bus received assurances nf support from nearly all the
business men of the City and In the
unlikely event of a contest they have
ussurnd him further Hint they will
get out and work for him. Several
names have been mentioned up to date
of likely aldermanic candidates but
no definite steps have yet been taken
In this direction. It is understood
Hint Mayor Houston, in hiB efforts to
get back into the good graces of the
laboring men, is advocating straight
labor aldermanic candidates In both
wards.

oflice he sh-uld leave his Unionism at
home   or   in his lodge.    As for   labor;
Unionists, The Miner would be happy '
to give its support to one of   thorn, if i
satisfied   that he was  qualified and if
he   presented   himself   as   a   citizen.
The mun who goes   to   tho   Council is
expected to do bis best for   the people
as a whole,   and if houest   he will see
that   tins   expectation   is   not   disappointed.    The   people could not tolerate a lawyer Unionist who would seen
to bend the Council   to   the benefit of I
lawyers   only,   nnd why should   they I
be expected to tolerate   any other sort
of Unionist?    Hut if they come ns eit-1
izens, und in the spirit of fairness   to i
all, no ono will   welcome them   more
warmly than The   Miner, whether   in
their lodges they are doctor Unionists
or labor Unionists.
THE MAYORALTY.
Mention has been made of Mr. John
A. Turner as a candidate for the Mayoralty ; but the gentleman himself haB
not authorised tho use of his name,
nor so far as known is there any reason to suppose that he will. We
should be sorry now to learn that he
had been persuaded to accept a nomination ; not that The Miner distrusts
him or believes that he is Incompetent, but becauso it is quite sure he
would make an excellent Mayor, and
that personally he would do credit to
the position. As there is already a
candidate of this kind in the field, it
is not necessary that there should be
another, and we are not aware that
the best quality of Mayoralty timber
Is so plentiful in Nelson that we ean
afford to be extravagant in utilising it.
Mr. McKillop has earned his spurs.
He has served several terms as Alderman,and has a complete knowledge of
coiporation affairB, not only as they
present themselves to the meic observer, but in detail. No one is more familiar with the municipal situation.
For the puat two years he has been
Intimately nssociuted with all the
problems presented by It, and has
tuken his full share of duty and responsibility in dealing with them.
His friends believe that his abilities
and application can be made of greater service by advancing him to the
higher position of Mayor.nnd they believe further that he has deserved the
promotion by bis fidelity in the past.
It was eminently fitting and natural
that a person in every respect so well
qualified und so deserving should be
offered a nomination.
Why, then, should any one think it
necessary or in the public interest to
dispute his claim or challenge his
qualifications? We cannot Imagine
that Mr. Turner will do this, or that
he will permit anyone elBc to do it for
him. He can advance no claim to
the otlioe that Mr. McKillop cannot
more than make good in his own be-
hal'. It is because we can conceive
no reason why any good citizen should
desire to opposo the nomination of
Mr. McKillop that we cannot believe
Mr. Turner will permit himself to be
put forward as a candidate. Should
ho do so there will be very general
regret that our little community, already rent enough with divisions and
dissensions, is to be further agitated
by a contest that can serve no useful
purpose. Hut there will be this consolation in the end, comforting enough
no doubt in one seuse, after we shall
have recovered from the regret of it,
and that Is thut in any event the City
will have a Mayor of whom there will
he no cause to be ashamed.
Canada has not yet been invited to
send a deputation to represent this
county at the ceremonies to be observed in opening the first Parliament of
the Australian Commonwealth, somewhere about May 1st. Hut no doubt
it will be.and if we accept the invitation it should be done with all the
credit we can give the occasion. We
should send our best men as the deputation; anything less would be a poor
compliment either to ourselves or to
the Commonwealth. The suggestion
of Sir John   llourinot's is a   good one
the deputation should be composed
of the Premier and Sir Charles Tupper, as the two most distinguished
Canadians. It is doubtful if the
Goverument will rise to the occasion
and name Sir Charles,but it would be
a fitting and also a gracious thing to
do, and one that would give immense
pleasure to tho country   at   large.

Mr. Houston is either vory dull of
comprehension or too perverse to understand oven if ho can. lie suys in
Ms paper that tho luwycrs and the
doctors and the dentists have each
their Unions, but for this reuson they
are not to bo debarred from running
for otlice; and if a lawyer,or a doctor,
or a dentist, why not a member of a
tradcB Union'.' We do not know that
any sane person has ever claimed that
a member of a trades or labor Union Is
not as free to offer for public oflice as
any one else, and if possessed of the
necossury qualifications as fully entitled to election. But he is to present
himself as a oitizen, not as a labor
Unionist. The Minor would opposo a
lawyer Unionist, or a doctor Union
1st, or a dentist Unionist just as readily and earnestly as it would a labor
Unionist. We want no class representative in the Council, but citizens
who will represent all classes impartially. A lawyer or doctor or dentist
who would put himself forward and
claim election because he was a lawyer or duotor or deutist would deserve
defeat. A member of any Union may
be as good a citizen ns any person not
a Unionist, but when he seeks public
In the departure of Mr. Peters, Nelson is losing not only one of its most
prominent citizens but also one of its
most useful. He is devoted heart and
soul to the Canadian Pacific Railway,
lives by it and for it, swears by it,
and on no account will permit anyone
to swear at it. Yet be has found time
and has bad the inclination to help i.i
every movement or enterprise calculated to udavnee the well being of
the town which be had made bis home
during the past three or four years.
He will leave a big bole when he goes
which it will take a long timo to fill
in. If he were not so ambitious to
serve his Company, he could make
himself content to ride at anchor in
some comfortable harbor during the
rest of hiB days, but nothing will satisfy the man but the Presidency and
of course he is not to be restrained.
Ihe Miner hopes he will'get it, or
something very close to it.

MATION
In order that the Government may
be in |inHs!'ssit)!i of delinite information with which to supply those seeking Investments in this Province, I
am instructed to Invite particulars
from those who have properties for
Bule, and who may feel disposed to
forward such particulars to this office
for the purpose in question.
In view of the proposed early re-or-
gftnlsation of the Agent Oeneral's
Otlice in London, England, the desirability of having on file a list of
farms and other properties for sale,
with full and accurate details, is obvious. Properties submitted may include farms and farm lands, Industrial or commercial concerns, timber
limits, water powers, or other enterprises affording opportunities for legitimate investment.
It is not proposed to recommend
properties to intending investors, but
to afford the fullest access to the classified lists and all available Information connected therewith, and to place
enquirers in communication with tho
owners.
The fullest particulars are desired
not only of the properties themselves,
but of the localities In which they
aro situated, and the conditions
affecting them. For this purpose
printed schedules will, upon application, be forwarded to those desirous
of making sales,

Since the establishment of the new
time schedule and route via Bonner's
Ferry of the Spokane Falls and Northern, the passenger traffic has made a
noticeable increase and especially is
this the case concerning the traffic
for Eastern Canada and the l'nited
States. Tlie latter service meets with
approval owing to the good connections that aie made at Honuer'fi Ferry
with the main line of the Oreat Northern. Passengers leaving Nelson at 7
o'clock in the morning meet the regular train for the east at II o'clock- and
no time is   lost.    This brings the pas
sengers to any   point   in   the  east   -4
hours earlier than it otherwise would.
On Sunday evening at Emmanuel
Church Rev. Wm. Munroe will proaoh
