Frederick Howard Will Have to Answer to
the Charge  of Attempt to
Murder Muller.
The preliminary hearing in the ease
of Frederick Howard, oharged with
attempting to murder Wilium Muller.
wns concluded hefore Magistrate
Crease this morning and Howard was
committed to the Provincial jail to
await trial at the next assize. Several witnesses were examined. Howard
wns asked if he desired to enter any
elvdence on his own behalf and replied In the negative,
11. Robinson, proprietor of the Bo-
dega, was the first witness exalmned.
He said: "1 can identify the prisoner, He was using bail language In
speaking to tlie bur tender about 1:30
Sunday afternoon, I told him to go
out but lie wanted to stay in anil
treat. I told him liis money was no
good ami 1 'li1' not want hiru in the
place. Prisoner went out ami staved
out in minutes. Mr. Muller came out
to the bar anil then he went back to
the room anil sat down. Prisoner

go anil try to sleep. In a second or
two, as I thought, 1 heard th.i gun go
There was some talk just before
the shooting took place, I ran in and
just as 1 entered the room the prisoner pulled the gun on me and Bald, ' I
will fix you too.' I grabbed tbe gnu
hut still the prisoner tried to shoot
inr before 1 got tbe gnu from him. I
let go of the prisoner and he ran out
uf the loom." Here Mr. Robinson
produced the revolver that was used
by the prisoner, and said, "tin1 prisoner snapped the gun at me a dozen
times, but it failed to gooff." Mr.
Robinson then said tbe prisoner escaped and be tried to get a doetor and
do what be could for Muller who was
lying on the door bleeding dreadfully.
Frank Barr was tbe next witness.
He said that be bad been in Nelsou
one month, and knew tbe prisoner,
lie was standing at the front of ibe
saloon mi Sunday afternoon and bear-
gin loud words at the back of the saloon In- went in to see what was the

Hotel, was also examined, lie slated
he. was in the small room with the

of the miners employed by tbe New I
Vancouver Coal Company was held in
the Nanaimo Opera House. Ralph
Smith, secretary of the Union, Tully

days of gambling and the dance hall
in Yukon's capital are over. Theofli-
eials in the north of the Canadian territory, acting upon instructions from
the Administration at Ottawa, have
decided that gambling and kindred
evils must   lie closed down at once.
A few days ago publicity was given
to the letter of instructions sent by
Minister Sifton from Ottawa,in which
he suggested that at once the gambling places be closed. It was stated
at that time that Commissioner Ogil-
vie and Major Wood would defer acting on the suggestion untl next .lime,
so as not to cause hardship among tbe
people who have money invested therein. Hut this decision was evidently

Tells of His Part in the Attempt to
Defraud Insurance Companies.
Chicago, Oct. U.���Frank M. Smiley,
the detective of the Moonoy and Bo-
land agency, who was one of the men
arrested yesterday in connection with
tho insurance frauds, which ended
with the death of Marie Defenbach,
August 35, has made a full written
confession of his part in the crime.
The confession if tine, implicates
witli him Dr. August Unger and Frank
Wayland Brown, assistant manager of
the Mooney and Poland agency, the
other two men under arrest. When
the case goes on trial Smiley, it is announced, will turn State's evidence.
State-Attorney Dcncen expects that
all three men will be convicted of
conspiracy to defraud the New York
Life Insurance Company, and two benevolent societies, tho Canadian Order of Foresters and the Knights and
Ladies of Security. But it is very
doubtful whether any charge can be
even formally made on the evidence
available. At least one other man
connected with the Mooney and Bo-
land agency is now under surveillance
for suspicious actions at the time of
Miss Defenbacb's death. It is not

that the date of election is known :
"I have only just received the
news," said Mr. MaeNeill, "and have
not yet mapped out my programme,
But we are hard at work and will be
able in a day or two to announce
dates of meetings throughout the district. Things over here in Rossland
look bright and advices from other
parts of the riding are equaUy cheering. With a three cornered fight I
have not the slightest doubt of success at the polls and the Conservatives
of Nelson can lay in a stock of brooms
and enguge a band for the night of
November 7,"
Those who arc most anxious to
compass the defeat of Mr, A. II. MaeNeill have, within the past day or
| two, made efforts to secure the withdrawal of both Mr. W. A. Galllher
and Christopher Foley, with the view
of putting in the Held another man
who it is believed would draw both
the Liberal and the Labor votes solidly. Tho men who first suggested the
move are citizens of Rossland, who
have admitted with the three candidates in the Held Mr. MaeNeill 1b sure
of election. It is understood that Mr.
Galllher has declined, np to date, to
listen to these advances and lias determined to stay in the fight. Mr.
Galllher could not bo seen by The
Miner this morning because of his
absence from tbe city. Mr. MaeNeill
wusaskd by telephone if be bud heard
anything of this move and he admitted that he bail and said that bis information was that those who were at
tbe bead of it were sticking to it and
were confident that both Mr. Galllher
aud Mr. Foley would withdraw, leaving the Held open for one strong man.

struck on the head with a brick;
eorge Hughes, picked up unconscious, having been struck on the head
with a paving block, slight contusion

After a needlessly long wait dissolution has come, and an order for a new-
election has been issued. Nominations
will be held on Wednesday, 31st
Inst., and the polling a week later
The contest will be short; there is
every prospect that it will be sharp,
and each side hopes for itself that it
will be decisive. The (iovoriiment's
discretion in respect to dissolution
has been used to tho advantage of
their party, which means that a practice essential to our form of govern
ment has been abused. For over a
month there has been uncertainty,
during which time the leaders of the
party in power have been privately
instructed to prepare for the contest.
No great advantage has been gained
by this, howevei, for the Opposition
have been on the alert and their preparations are probably as far advanced
as are those of the enemy. They were
not caught napping, which is nothing
to the credit of the Government's intentions. Now that the uncertainty
la nt. an end, thorn will be a general
feeling of satisfaction that the excite
ment and consequent business, dis
turbance will be over so soon.
The Colonist lias some commendatory things to say of Mr. lhinsmuir in its
Sunday leader, all of them moderate
and in good taste and sueh as few w
feel disposed to challenge. But what
they l'ad to is rather darkly indicated. There is to be an effort, it seems,
to carry out some new- policy, a "policy as broad as the Province." The
only clew to the nature of it is in the
following, but if it means no more
than a no-party administration it can
hardly be said to be new. There is
the suggestion, however, that politi
cal foes anil malcontents are to be ap
peased, and warring leaders aie to
embrace.    We quote:
"If there are political interests
which arc not wholly in unison, an
effort ought to be made to bring them
together, as the political leaders of
old Canada brought all interests into
harmony to consummate Colifedera
tion, and as parties got together iu
(Ireat Britain in order to defeat the
plans of those who aimed to divide
the I'nited Kingdom, British Colum
bia can well afford for the present to
take leave of party politics in its local
affairs, iu order to accomplish the re
suit which we all so much desire;
namely, the material advancement of
the Province, so that those of us who
are now living in the country may de
rive some of tbe benellts of expanding
prosperity. Mr. llunsinuir IwiB un
iloiit.tH.il.- been able to inaugurate an
era nt'm good feeling. It should be his
effort to establish an epoch of united
"This. then, is what we regard as
the present duty of Mr, llunsinuir as
a public man. and one into whose
bands front power has fallen. The
responsibility is u serious and weighty
one, but we are confident that he is
fully equal to it. If there were notb
Ing iu British Columbia politics but a
question of ins nnd outs, or the distribution of patronage, The Colonist
would cease to trouble itself lllmut the
matter, and no man of large individual interests would reel warranted in
giving   it   bis attention,    lint at. this
particular Juncture  there is far more
than that. It is not too much to nay
that the welfare of the Province for
the next decado depends in a very
large degree upon the   line   of   policy
which  the   local   Government    may
adopt during the next six months,mid
the manner   in   which   that   policy Is
endorsed by the Legislature. The time
Is therefore nl hand for united action,
and the inauguration of an era of
harmony and progress.  '
meet ing. Mr. Sloan, too, was there.
Mr. Sloan is the gentleman whom a
number of Liberals selected as their
candidate, and was in the Held a long
time before those Labor delegates at
Ottawa nominated Mr. Ralph Smith.
The bitter's chairman rather assumed
to ignore Mr. Sloan, but he and his
friends seemed determined to keep
themselves very much in evidence until the close of tbe polls. There was
much turbulenoe in the little family
circle, and it should not prove preju-
licial to the chances of the Conservative candidate, Mr. Brydcn.
The  ways of   Mr.  Ralph Smith may
bo ways of   pleasantness, but all his
paths are not paths of pence.  The lirst
meeting of bis oapmalgn in Nanaimo
was a somewhat uproarious one.   The
younger Mr. MelnneS wns present at
It, and Mr. Mclnncs does not like Mr,
Ralph Smith. That will sufilciently
Isccouut for thu uproarioutinvsb of  thu
We have not yet seen it announced
that Mr. Dewdnoy bus accepted the
nomination for the constituency of
New Westminister,but the best friends
nf the Province hope that he will. It
needs its strongest men at Ottawa!
With Mr. Garden for Burrard, Col.
Prior and Mr. Earle for Victoria, Mr.
Bryden for Nanaimo, and Mr. MacNcill for Yale-Cariboo, British Columbia is fortunate in tho character of
its Conseravtive candidates.

1SUT ' Explaining this uiliwnce, and
dlBousslng the situation generally, and
the piospeot of still higher prices,
Secretary. Edward Brush of the
Ainelrcan Smoltins and Kelluing Company,   an   authority   on   the subject,
.���The subject is one the future uf
wh|oll it is difficult to forecast.
Propheoles are worse than wasted.
When silver ilcelinctl from 80 cents im
ounce to ������������ oents there was u Strong
Bontlment nifiiiust it, and yet the decline was in the face of very general
predictions that it was not likely to
ooeur, At the present time the price
is governed more than it has been for
some time by the law uf supply anil
demand. It may not be generally
known, hut it is a fact, nevertheless,
Hint there has been a serious falling
off in tin' production of this country
in the last year. The production 11
year ago was about 50,000,000 ounces;
this year it is on a basis of a little
over .10,11(111,0110 ounces, the falling oil'
up toclate being equal to about 4,(100,-
000 minces. This is due to the fact
that some of the mines have been exhausted, while at tho same time so
much attention is being given tu the
gold anil copper ores that silver is
somewhat neglected. Were the price,
however, to go up to 711 cents an
ounce, many new mines would undoubtedly be worked. Yet In this
connection the fact is not tube losl
tight uf that while the production has
decreased here, it bus increased in
Mexico ami Hritish Columbia sufficiently to offset the loss here.
"What is the real factor in the situation is the increased demand from
India, China, and the Straits Settlements. So far this year London Iiiib
shipped to India. .1,000,(100 ounces
more than during the same time last
year, tu China 11,Olio,OOII ounces inure,
uml tn Ihe Straits Settlements 3,500,-
000 ounces more, The Increased shipments lu t'liina are due to tbe extension of trade ami the war. Since the
outbreak uf hostilities there tbe country has not been able to import anything, while exports still go out. Naturally, something must go in to pay
for those exports, and that something
is silver.
"In India the situation is more interesting anil stable. When tbe Knglish Government closed the mints to
silver iu 1895 it made an artificial
value fur the silver rupee, just us our
silver dollar has its artificial value.
In India they have no   banks, and the
only way to accumulate money is to
hoard. Now. Bllvei went to India for
years upon years at the rate of (10,-
000,000 ounces a year, and it went
out of sight, hoarded in tbe form of
the coined rupee. As soon as the
higher artiefiial value of the rupee
was created the Hoarders of the rupees began to take the amout, getting
the higher value, aud putting their
hoardings back in the form of bnv silver, of which they could got 35 per
cent, more in weight. At last this
ocean iB being baled out.' The hoarded rupees have nearly all come out,
but, inasmuch as the monetary needs
of the country arc increasing, the
English Government must continue to
coin rupees at an increasing rate, until it gets back to the place where it
was before the mints closed."

11. W, Taylor, of tliis olty, who yes-
terday purohased tbe Newsboy eluiiu
from Robert Qua, brougb down a sample of nn1 froiii tin- property nnd Imd
assay tests taken from it yesterday
afternoon, The returns were higb,
souu' giving .110 in Kuld per ton. The
vein has been found to lie III! inches
wlile. and tins been stripped for a distance nf 1,300 feet.
The property is situated along the
Spokane Falls & Northern, about six
miles from Nelson, and is well looated
as to shipping inutilities. Development work will be resumed next
spring, when tunneling  nnd shafting
will e done.
*   ���   ���
Rossland, Oet, 0.���The output from
the euinp has been dimlnishd, as the
Le Roi No. i! has stopped shipping
altogether for the present and will
not resume until the plants at the
smelter anil at the l.e Roi are in a
sufficient statu of preparedness to allow of resumption. Ii is probable
that one or two Irregular shipments
may be made from time to time, but
the output from the l.e Koi No. 2 has
practically ceased for the present.
The Rossland Great Western should
ship this week. It was the intention
to ship last week, bul the smelter has
become mure congested than over. lie-
fore all the arrangements have been
completed it is probable thnt the year
will have ended. Shipments for the
rest of the year will not, therefore,
materially exceed the Weekly output
for the last seven days. As to the
Columbia and Kootenay, there will
be nothing done upon it for the coming winter as far as shipping is concerned. Although H was the intention
of the management to have done something this season, there has been so
much work in eonneetion with the
other mines that there has not been
time to attend to the Columbia and
Kootenay. which indeed,for the treatment of its ores depends upon the capacity of the Northport smelter.
The smelter has three furnaces in
full blast, but is restricted by tbe capacity of its sampling mill, through
which all ore must go before it can be
placed upon the roast heaps. Now the
Le Roi is building a sampling mill on
the headworks of the main shaft,
whieh, when completed, will allow
the mill at Northport to deal with
customers. Kven when this is completed the smelter has to put in some
subsidiary mechanical roasters and
even another briquetting machine, so
that the first matter from the smelter
can be treated for a higher renfiement
before shipping to the refineries east.
Thus it will be seen that the shipments from the subsidiary II. A. C.
properties depends wholly on the com-
lction of a quantity of inter-dependable plants at nnd connected with the

Chesaw and -'II!., to MolBon by a gooil

Story of Eva Moser Who Died
In a Shack In Nelson
The story of Eva Moser, whose dead
body was found in a shack at the foot
of Ward street last night, is tho story
of another outcast from the half
world; a story of a woman who had
fallen so low iu the depths of degru
dation that oven her sisters in shame
refused her succor. She died as she
hud lived for several duys pust, in u
dirty shack, what little clothiug she
wore as dirty as the floor beneat
nor, and around her empty bottles
which had boon filled with that which
hud brought the woman herself to the
position of an outcast. There was in
her face as the body was lifted from
the floor a Bemblance leftof the refin
ment which hud marked her girlhood
Sho wus discovered last evening by
John Rhodes who notified W. II. liul-
lock-Webster, Chief of Provincial l'o
lice. Mr. Webster visited the shuck
and found thut the woman had died
only a short time before. Rhodes at
tention was drawn to tho shack first
on Sunday morning when in passing
it, ho hoard some one groaning, lie
looked through the window nnd the
woman wus lying on the floor, ns
Rhodes thought, drunk. He paid no
further attention to her, until jester
day evening, when again passing the
house. This time he looked in
through tho door and saw the womui
laying motionless on the tloor. Jit
did not care to inevstigute hinicslf
und therefor called Mr. llullook-Webster. Chief Jarvls and Ur. Ar
thur. coroner, were notified and tho
latter ordered tho body removed to an
undertaking establishment.
Eva. Moser, as the woman was
known in the half world,came to Ncl
son from Feinie several months ago
She was addicted lo the liquor habit
nnd wns more often drunk thun sober
In duly she wns arrested for vagrancy
nnd was sentenced to 00 days in the
Provincial Jail, being discharged on
October 1. Since thut time she has
lived ns best she could sleeping in the
shack in which she died and begging
liquor or money from any one who
would give. There is no suspicion of
foul piny in connection with her
denth. Coroner Arthur has decided
that no inquest will lie necessary, as
tho wOman undoubtedly died from
natural causes.
Cranbrook, 11. C, Oet. 9.���Mr. W.

hear the Nelson man und he was en-
thusinsticully received. Mr. (lalliher

points before returning to Nelson.
Two More Coal Mine Operators Offer
the Ten Per Cent. Advance.
Hazelton, Pa., Oct. 9.��� The A. S.
Van Wicklo Co., operating tho Cole-
rain and MllneSville collieries, and
the Calvin Pardee and Co., owners of
the Latimer mines, posted notices today offering the ten per cent, advance
in wages to its mine workers. The
notices are similar to those posted by
the other companies. There are only
about four other individual operators
in this region that hnve not yet offered the Increase, among them being n.
B, Markle & Co. These firms, however, are expected to make the wage
concession within the next few days.
There wus no march this morning but
the usunl crowds gathered in the vicinity of the collieries that nre still
working for the purpose of getting
the men to refrain from going to
work.   There  were  no disturbances

Having this day taken over the Business of The Western
Mercantile Company, Limited of Nelson, we beg to ask for a
continuance of the patronage which you have heretofore extended to them. Our aim will be at all times to supply you
with the best goods at lowest possible prices; being in a position to buy goods in larger quantities than any firm in the

The same staff which has waited on you in the past will
continue to do so, aud they will spare no pains in making the
dealings both pleasant and profitable to you. To those who
have not honored the retiring firm with a share of their patronage, we would ask you to come and have at least a trial order,

goods are the best.
