Story of the Disaster by a
Lady Passenger-
WAS ONLY ONE VICTIM
Mi'.   Dunpkce Died   From   tbe   Shock
Perfect   Discipline���Women  and
Children Saved First.
Southampton, Nov. 17.���Tbe rescued
passengers of the Patria spent the
night at Southampton. They were
boused at the Hamburg-American
Company's expense v.'hile waiting the
ar.ivnl of the Friedrieh. Four of the
passengers were left at Dover and oue
of these, a man named Dunplaco, will
probably be dead tomorrow as a result
of bis terrible experience in the Kng-
lish channel. Mr. Dunplaoe has been
20 years German Consul at San Jnan
de Porto Ricfo, and with him are his
wife and Mrs. lvers of New York City,
fellow cabin passongoi', who being
a trained nurse and seeing the distress
of Mr. and Mrs. Dmiplaec has generously volunteered to slay aud nurse the
consul. Mr. Dunplaoe was suffering
from anaemia and the shock of exposure
has agiavated the oomplaint to such nn
extent that thu attending physician
told tho coirespondent of the Associated press this evening that tho consul
bad but little chances of life.
Mrs. Dunplaoe gives the following
description of their escape:
"It was aboil1: half past 10 o'olook
yesterday morning, th' weather being
calm and lino, several of us being seated in the deck saloon when suddenly
Captain Frohlioii appeared and shouted'All passengers on deck.' Every-
ody ..: ��� ��� ��� ward witb �� rash, ' W i

' 'then smoke begun to pour ont
thiongh   iii    rlr.nk    ]iu:,i    (he
'��� My sick husband wus in his
cabin and nndressod, 1 hnrried to him
and began to dress hiin, when the
���:��� ward, sbontin ;, ,;; ml "r this,
quick !' ITe. took my husband by the
feel nud 1 supported his head We
stinted to the deck whioh we n i oho I
in safety. There, ali the passengers
were crowded together. Thicks olonds
of smoke wero lilowing over the whole
ship, and distress signals wore flying.
One passenger who bad hastily como
from the bath room, appeared with
scarcely any clothing. Others found
themselves equally unprepared. The
captain told us that he would lower
tha boats as a precaution. So we
lined up. 'Women and children first.'
shouted the captain, who was standing near me. I leplied that I would
have to wait for the men's turn as I
could not leave my helpless husband.
Tho captain nuswero'l nie by lifting
my husband, placing him in the bottom of one of the noats. ordering nie
to follow and telling the steward to go
with us.
"My boat was lirst lowered. We
wore terribly frightened, but though
a few ornd there was no disorder.
The ollicors and crow did what they
could, and encouraged us to bo hrave
and cool. While one boat was being
lowered the bottom began to give way.
The women screamed and for a moment it seemed as if the bottom won lil
drop out, but it wns soon hauled
up and another boat was quickly
lowered, Another boat had no crow,
the passengers wero doing tho rowing.
"Meanwhile some Ashing smacks
had come up, mid several passengers
hoarded these, but Captain Froblloh
bellowed through the smoke that no one
must leave tho Patria's boats, so they
loft the smacks. Fiom this order wo
inferred that tbe sailois who were
working ceaselessly, hoped to put out
tho fire. For more than un hour we
lay alongside the liner, hot and smoke
covered,cinders and debris falling over
our heads. Through the lire wo occasionally caught sight of Captain Froblloh on the bridge. He divided his attention between giving ordors to the
crow aud joking with the passengers.
He shouted, laughingly, 'the lire is in
my cnbin, now and I can't get my
pipe aud you all know 1 can't do anything without my pipe.'
"Tben the Ceres cuino up, and hor
captain sang out, 'Your ship's afire,
shall I take your passengers?'
"Frightened as we   wore, we laugh
ed.    Captain Frohlich made tho  Ceres
promise to take us to  Dover  and our
boats were pulled over to her and wo
wore taken aboard.
"The last we saw of the Patria she
was just a muss of smoke and going
slowly towards Hum burg. Most of us
had to pay for what little we could get
to eat on board tho CereB. At Dovor
everybody wns very kind.
"If tho captain had put us ashore as
soon as the fire was discovered we
would not have lost our belongings,
uor have been exposed to such danger. "
Later-Dover, Nov. 17.���Mr. Dun-
place died hoie this evening from the
shock.

Chnrrhes were open all night long and
hundreds of thousands spent the night

���lib cavalry and a detachment of the
signal corps has begun his norlhw.ird
advance fiom Tarlac which will be
continued to tho Bacombon Province of
New Vizoaya.
Loudon, Nov. 18.���5 a. m.���The absence of news of any sort regarding the
movement against Ladysmith seems
to show that the Boers are repeating
the strategy adopted by them at Dundee
when tbey appeared iu front and endeavored to effect a surrounding movement. This seems to be their object
regarding Estcourt, and us it is impossible that relief should reach there for
days to come, it is not unlikely that a
further retiriug movement on Moorie
River will be made.

It has heen reported that tbe Belmont fight arose about the advance of
a British column to relie.e Kimberley, but thi* seems incorrect, all the
most tellable accounts reporting the
engagement as growing out of a reoon-
naisance, The announcement of the arrival of General Methuen at Oiauge,
however, doubtless means that arrangements are in a forward state to ad-
vanco from that point if the advance
i has not ulrealy begun. Kimberley wbb
safe on Friday Nov. 10. Last Tuesday a Boer force of GOO entered Aliwal
Noith, Capo Colony, aud hoisted tho
(lag cf the Republic. The activity of
the Boers in this locality would almost
point to the necessity of insuring the
safety of the column inarching to the
relief ot Kimberley from this direction
or trom Bloemfontein.
[n view of the reticence of General
Buller it is almost useless to speculate
regarding the report of a movement
towards Kimberley. It can only he
intended to withdraw tho Boors, If
possible, from Natal. The object of
tho occupation of Aliwal North is understood to prevent the large quantity
of ammunition at Herznhol being forwarded  to  Jamestown  and  then to
(jnneustown. Then tbo Boers have
given orders that no looting shall bfl
done, and no goods seized by their military authorities will he paid for at
Queensland, There are reports of mysterious movements of a Free State
command along the Orange River und
Important developments aro expected.
Everything tends to show that, tbe relief of Kimberley could only be undertaken by a strong column.

Chief Joel.tenorized bv assertions that

THE C   P. R. TRADE.
The Ci*y has souio claim to the
present recreation grounds, a small
plttt of land in the neighborhood of tbe
waterfront. As a part of the bargain
to make this a divisional point, the
Canadian Pacific Company offer to
trade forty acres back of the City for
such rights as we possess. The members of the Council have agreed to accept the offer, and the proposition has
now to bo submitted to tho electors.
Why a matter of that kind should uot
be left to the discretion of tho Council
it would puzzle tho wit of man to explain. But such is the law, and on
that score nothing is left to say but
that it is a vory stupid one, and that
the sooner the Council is reinvested
with its full share of responsibility
the better.
The people are to be asked to approve
or reject the agreement arrived at. In
connection with this they are expected
to consider the other matter of a divisional point, for the one is supposed
to hinge on the other. We do not
know whether their excitement over
the smaller matter will cause them to
lose sight of the advantages which will
accrue as a result of making Nelson the
headquaiters of the C. P. R. in
Southern British Columbia, but tbere
is danger that it may. The real question at issue is whether the City desires those important railway works;
the trade of one bit of ground for another for recreation purposes is n mere
bagatelle in comparison. It is not
worth tho trouble of a vote. The Mayor
says that in present value the front
acre or two aro worth $12,000 more
than the back forty acres. That is
probably true, if values aro to be based
on a strictly commercial basis. His
Worship no doubt takes this business
view of it, nnd for business purposes
the difference in valifos is probably as
great as ho says. But regarded an recreation grounds pure and simple there
would uot be twelvo thousand cents
of difference, anrl they can only be so
regarded for the reason that thoy are
reserved exclusively for that use.
Wo cannot but think that a great
deal more is being made of this matter
than it deserves. That a city restricted as to room in which to grow should
be expected to reserve forever, in
what in n few years will be the veiy
heart of rhe business portion of it, a
plot on which we may play baseball
now und then is one of the most remarkable manifestations of mental distortion that it is possible to imagine.
It is proposed in tho bargain to take
a seven yours' lease of it, in order, we
suppose, that the City will not bo deprived of its "recreation" while the
other is being knocked into shape us a
park. Long before the expiration of
tbo soveu vears the City will be ir, full
enjoyment of its forty acres, und will
wonder that there was ever the least
hesitation as to choice. Tho one ques

should not supply gas to consumers at
a less rate than two dollards per thousand. The Miner thought this oue of
the most extraordinary municipal enactments over beard of, aud said so.
The Council representing the people
made it illegal for the people ever to
get cheap gas.
Now, let us see the position   we are
iu.  The Bonniugton Fulls people are to
be allowed to come in with their  elec
trie power; thoy are to ba allowed, be
caues it   would   be   tyranny   to  keep
them   out.    In their favor,   therefore,
and to the  extent   of  the  concession,
j the corporation monopoly is suspended.
i But   how   about   the   Gas   Company''
I Are tiny to have no privilege   or   pro-
itection?   They   are   prohibited    from
' selling gas for   less thnn ,1  certuin fig-
I ure, to prevent competition- with  the
: corporation sere ice.    They   aro   erecting works and constructing  a   system
at a cost of between ono and two hun-
1 dred thousand dollars.    They will   al-
I ways remain 111'ge taxpayers, and their
j works will involve a large annual  expenditure to maintain them   in   operation.    They arc prevented   from   competing with the  corporation system in
the supply of cheap light; but a Company who never spent  a   dollar in tho
City, who never   contribute   a   dollar
towards its support  or  turn a hand to
promote its prosperity, ar" to be allowed to   infringe upon onr mouoDoly and
to   still   further    prejudice   the  just;
claims of the   Gas Company.    It is  a
very queer business, altogether.
QUEER BUSINESS.
If the Messrs. P. Burns & Co. require electric power to run their cold
stoiago plant und canuot gel it from
the Oity, it would be a monstrous oppression to refuse thom the privilege of
obtaining it elsewhere. There may be
something said in defence of a corporation monopoly, if the resources of thnt
monopoly aro sufficient for all demands upon it; bnt to enforce it in
the face of an insufficient supply is
nothing short of tyranny unadulterated. The Messrs. Boms & Co., must
have their power; to deny thom this
privilege would be an net of injustice
which the City cannot afford to commit.
But just here arises another question. Tho City owns an eleotrio plant.
Although limited in onpacity it has
taken steps to protect itself against
competition. The Bonnirigton Falls
people havo electric power to burn,
and wore unxious to got in hut ihe City
would not let them. The Miner at
the time thought this course was bud
in principle and wonld prove bad
in practice, but no hood was taken to
its objection. At thnt time tho City
wns nlso bargaining for n gas service,
and a charter was granted to a Company   who    undertook   to   supply   it
The electric servioe of the Citv was to

two children, all of whom are seriously ill. No 0110 in Quebec doubts
Col. Pelletier's affection for his family; it is only exceeded by his high

INDIAN TROUBLES
_*	
ODD TALKS WITH 0LD-TIMER8 OF
NELSON.
How the Oolville Indians' Pretensions to
Own Kootenay Were Dealt With
in the Past.
"\V�� riou't see many Indians around
here now," said an old timer yester
day, "but in the early days there were
lota of them, and wero it not lor the
firm si.-.iid tukeu hy Judge Sproat, we
might vet be troubled with them. Tiiey
were not British Columbian Indians,
bnt a lot of wild iellows from Col-
villo. They need to hunt mill lisb
through this country until the white
men came in, nud then thi fellows
wanted to lay claim to the whole country. In 1888 they had u big light with
tlie whito men at Ward's Crossing
Win n the Oolville Indians, like all
other Indians I suppose, got whiskey
there was bound to he a row, if not
with white men, among themselves.
The row I speak of was n rather sori-
ous oue although no lives were lost.
Shots were freely fired, and hlack eyes
ami blind disfigured many laces. The
Indians lutci �� big encampment uear
Robson where tho Kootenay empties
into the Coliiin ia. Here they ban a
few potato patches which they thought
would give them a clear title to the
country. This was a favorite plan of
tiieiis to show ihey were settlers. But
it did not work. Ihey had one of their
potato plots hore in Nelson down about
where tbe Chinese gardens now are.
Old man Johnson had a ranch ou the
arm of the Columbia, nenr the Lnr-
rieau, at where Evunaport is located.
Well the Indiana got after him, and
tried to put liim to rout. The case was
reported to Judge Sproat, and it did
not take him long to settle it. He simply told tho Iudiaua that they had no
claim whatever, to any of this country
���that their reservation was at Oolville, and thnt if they created any further disturbance he would see that they
got there or into the "skookum house. "
Jimmy Quigg was another settlor
that the Indians tried to dispossess of
bis raiioli opposite Robson, and after
this attempt they seemed to realize
lhat they had no abiding citv here.
Oh, no, thoy did not supply us with
game. We did that for ourselves uniil
about 1HS9, when the trail was completed nnd Joe Wilson, the packer,
drove into Nelsou the first cattle that
ever sot foot here to furnish us with
beefsteak. Joe took them over from
the Similknmeen country and Colville.
It was iu one of his trips with cattle
over the oldDewdney trail that he
struck the first mineral claim near
Deor Park. After this there was great
oxoiternent aud a regular rush for what
is now Rossland, A lot of na alakeil
off claims on the lied Mountain, man}
rn whirl) ���ve now dividend paying
mines. We smUsoi'ibocI ami sent an engineer named Ellis over to report.
When he .came back bo told us that
there was nol a smelter in the country
could treat the ores of that section so
rebellions were they, and on thi
strength of his report vie abandoned
onr claims. Sorry wa are for it now.
or if we had o favorable report tlio old
timers of Nolson would now he rhe
owners of some of the host mines in
the Rossland camp.''
THE FIREMEN'S  SMOKER.
An Enjoyable Time at the Opera House
Lasl Night.
One of tho most enjoyable smokers
held nuder the auspices of tho Firo
Brigade was tnat of last night at the
Opera House The programme was as
varied as it was enjoyable, and if the
plaudits of 11 full house count for anything every one present was happy.
The Smelter Band was in attendance
and discoursed some of its sweetest
and best music. Firo Chief Thompson presided and called off the different events iu a tone of confidence. After an opening selection by the band,
thore was a chorus, "The Soldiers of
the Queen,'' which was heartily applauded A song by Mr. R. Thompson, givon in his best style, and the
first sparring contest of the evening
was put ou the boards. Hamilton and
MeCrackon wero the contestants, and
produced u great deal of excitement.
Hamilton acted on the defensive during
the first bout while his opponent seemed to waste a gront deal of energy iu
dancing around him. Chase and Hawkins provod themsovlea vsry lively with
tho gloves, ns did also Chambers and
Lyueh , tho two heavy weights. The
step dancing of H. MeUen was ouo of
the features of the evening,and though
ho was fairly well exhausted after going through his lirst performance, a
Vociferous encore brought him again to
the footlights. A quartette by the
Nolson Minstrels, for wliich they vere
encored, and a mandolin performance
hy the Nelson Mandolin (Hub, which
wns oqually well received, wore very
excellent. Thore were songs hy Messrs.
Marshall, Worthington, Williamson,
McCoy, Leicester, Prosser nud others
and a guitnr solo hy Mr. D. Shaw. A
most, enjoyable evening was brought lo
a close with the National A'lthom.

Oue of tho workmen at the highesl
point of the Madden building now
under construction, yesterday shouted
out "Smith, hello. Smith,'' and seven
passershy stopped, thinking that they
were the individuals addressed, Yet
people will say that the good old name
of Smith is dying out!
In yesterday's Miner ir, was stated
that the C. P. R. would be pleased to
re- eive tenders from local contractors
for the construction of the extension of

it should havo been added that this
alluded only to that section of the road

A glial many people seem to be un-
del [In1 impression that ai! ihe ground
now used tor roreation purposes is public property, Thu fact is that not
more than half of it is under the control nf the City. It might be well if
four stakes wero placed iu position to
ahow what portion of the recreation
grounds is city property,and what portion belongs to tho C. P. R, or private parties.
Tho Mayor yesterday rjceived a letter from llio Secretary, La Canadienne
Conipagnie d'Assuri.nce Sur la Vic, enquiring ns lo the whereabouts of one
Joseph Cflgnou, who was supposed to
be working on the Crow's Nest Pass
Railway construction The letter was
handed over to Chief Jin-vis. who ascertained that Cagiion left Nelson about
ten days ago for Ymir or the Boundary country.
The now water main from Anderson
and Cottonwood Creeks will have been
completed, it is hoped by Monday.
Yesterday the pipe was laid aa far as
corner of Mines Road and Kootenay
street. It will connect with the main
at (lie corner of Latimer nnd Stanley
streets. Tho pipe from Anderson
Creek is a ton inch one, and that from
Cottonwood Creek fourteen inches.
When completed it will secure for the
City an ample water supply for nil purposes.
An individual describing himself ns
the Australian Salesman has rented the
Opera House for Saturday night, and
piomises to give a free entertainment.
Ho claims to have fifteen "artists,"
so that -hose who are anxious to take
in n free show will get full value for
their expenditure -of time. However,
if this publio entertainer be the same
Australian Salesman who recently paid
the cities nf the Coast n visit, his auditors will do well to leave their purses
behind when starting for tho Opera
House. Tho tempting things that the
saleman offers nud the conditions of
sale, are likely to enrich him considerably if there"be muoh spitre money
around and an audience willing to pari
with it.
The Kootonay Lake Genernl Hospital ia nt present full. Its capacity is 18

establishment more lifted for its work

couple of weeks. A sum of about fii,

debt and furnish the new wards, etc.,
and there should he no difficulty in
raising it. The establishment is carefully and economically ruu.and is well
worthy of public support.
There are a number of very troublesome lads in kelson, and among the
number is young Parr, who has more
than once teen in the hands of the police. Yesterday morning he was
fighting on Baker street with another
youngster, considerably his junior, and
was giving him a sound thrashing
when Chief Jarvis arrive on the scene
an put nn end to the fight by placing
Parr under arrest. Tho juvenile
offender will bo brought before Police
Magistrate Ciease this morning, when
he will probably receive something
more than a sound lecture.

has been suggested that a hy-law he
prepared asking the people to vote a

Hall. The present building is altogether inadequate, considering the
number of Officers to be provided for
and the amount of business to bo done.
The last by-law on this point was defeated by a very narrow majority, and
the aldermen seem to think that the
ratepayers are now in a humor to vote

Captain Wamwright, who is charged
with issuing a number of cheques,
not having funds in the bank to meet
same, has been arrested at Rossland.
Yesterday morning Chief Jarvis received a telegram from Chief Ingram
of Rossland, stating that Wainwright
was held there. Chief Jarvis left yesterday evening to bring his man to
Nelson, and is exuectod back tonight
with the prisoner in charge. Wainwright was traced to Spokane a week
ago, and from there ho wrote several
letters to those to whom he issued the
bogus cheques, explaining that he was
expecting money from tho Old Country, and that as soon as it arrived he

A movement is on foot for the establishing of a high school in Nelson. In
order to secnio Government aid in
tho matter, it is necessary that there
should he at least twenty eligible pupils, and the question is if Nelson can
produce this number. Within the past
couple of yeais four pupils have passed
out of thu public sheojl here who
world be eligible, for tho high school
curriculum, but how many others are
available, it is difficult to ascertain.
However, a deputation from the City
Council will wait upon the Board of
School Trustees next Friday when the
matter will be discussed. Nelson is unquestionably the most convenient place
in the Kootenays for a high school aud
no effort will be spared to seonre it.

of this city and Mr. C.   M. Vinig, teller of the Union Bank. They are travelling in a speeial car provided   by the
committee of churchmen   who brought
1 Mr.  Moody to   Kansas City,   and   are
|going   over   the   Wabash   by   way  of
I Chicago and Buffalo.
It is admitted that Mr. Moody's condition is serious, though when the
' evangelist was seen at his hotel shortly
I before being taken to tho railroad sta-
| tion he expressed the belief that his
| condition was not serious. He stated
that he was feeling weak, and   added:

Work on tho Capella, on Goat mountain has beeu resumed. What is known
as the lower or ruby silver lead was
opened up, aud it has proven to be
something far hotter thau any of the
leads yet tapped ou this promising
group. A tunnel is beiug driven in on
the lead, which is carrying very high
grade ore from the grass roots. In fac-
mg-up preparatory to starting in, ore
that will yield f?00 or $300 was takeu
out. The lead runs ��up the hill aud
has been traced several hundred feet.
It is the owners' intention to work all
winter, taking^out and  shipping  tbe
ore.
��� ���   ���
The owners of the Koyal Pive group,
situated near the Mollie, Hughes, have
lately had that property thoroughly
prospected, with the result that a strong
ledge, carrying ore very similar to
that beiug taken out of the Mollie
Hughes, has been discovered.

olaims in conjunction with  tbi   iVoi

interested in two groups at Salmo,having recently purchase!   tho Queen nun
Noble Pive groups  and   has    already
started work ou tho Queen which   has
good surface showing of very high gold
values.    Mr. Caldwell will  return   to
Salmo very shortly.
There is noth
ing alarming about my condition I believe. "
Sine last Sunday night the evangelist has beeu preaching in Convention
Hull where the audieuce and conversions have numbered close to 1,500.
Twice he spoke with diffloulty and had
been compelled at times to sit up all
night. He could not breathe while
lying down. Today he was too ill to
go to the ball, and a large audience
which had gathered was turned away.
The reports as to the seriousness of
Mr. Moody's condition are continuing.
Several of his intimate friends stated
tonight that while his condition was
serious it was not critical. Dr. Schau-
ffer said thnt in his opiuion the evangelist's condition was not essentially
worse than for some time past and that
he was simply exhausted from his recent exertions. He added, however,
that Mr. Moody must have quiet and
rest.

The Ore Rate Controversy Between the
C. P. B. and Great Northern.
A upeeinl dispatoh from St. Pnnl  to
tho Spokeaman-Reyle'w Bays:
"An ore rate controversy is on here
between the trallio ofllcinlK of the Cau-
Hilinn Paeilic and President Hill,of the
Great Northern, in which many mine
owners of the Kootenavjdistrict are
interested. It uppoars that ,1. J. Hill
is doteriniiied that a smelter shall b,��
located at Spokane, if low rates ou his
road to and from tho mines to that city
can bring it about. It ia stated here
thnt be will put Home money into sneh
u smelter.
"Tbo Oanniian Paoiflo officers are
opposed to the low rates which Hill
has agreed to make, for the reason that
they have smelters of their own near
the mini's, und do not want tho ore
shipped to Spokane ijbot incase these
rates are made by Hill, the Canadian
Pacific demands a greater proportion
On the freight transferred from its line
to the Groat Northern than Mr. Hill
is willing to concede.
"T'io conference has occupied two
dayi without results, unless it hns
beon to ineronsH Hill's determination
to oncouruge the building of the smelter at Spokane.
"The iates which Mr. Hill has named for freight from Kootenny points
are $0 pel ton for all-rail shipment to
Spokane, and spit per ton on shipments
from Kootenay Luke points. From a
Bourne which is reliable and close to
President Hill, it is learned tbat the
estimated net cost of smelting these
Kootenny ores at the proposed Spokane
smelter is 98.86 per ton. The cost of
Height and reliniiig on llie bullion produced at the Spokane plant is figured
nt about 16,70 per ton This makes u
total fieight and treatment rate of
118.05 to |l4.lin per ton on Slocun ores.
How this compares with the rates
which the Canadian Pacific Railway
wishes to charge to the smelters on
its lino cnnnol lie lenrned here. How
ever, it is evident that the advantage
is so largely in favor of Mr. Hill's line
and the Spokane enterprise that the
C. P. H. people are much worried."
