had realized his terrible mistake. It
is entirely improbable that be will
be able to restore anything like the
statu quo, or obtain anything like
the same terms as were probable j and une o'olock on
last week. No one here knows just Opposition hud nl
what General Otis intends to impose in the way of terms. Secretary
Alger tliis afternoon repeated his
statement of yesterday that he had
r'wtn the Genernl no i^strvjctions
since the battle and saw no reason
for giving him any. He realized
he said, that General Otis being on
the ground and having proved his
fitness, was in a better position to
deal with the situation than any one
in Washington. Should the General ask permission, therefore, to
do anything, lie would be granted
permission immediately. "Should
he ask for instructions on any
point." said Secretary Alger, "be
will be told to exercise his own discretion."
In llits view of the case it will be
seen that no one here can tell at
present how General Otis will act
towards Aguiualdo's application,
but the opinion is expressed bj
men here who know of General
Otis' experience with the Indians
that he will nvike the laying down
of arms the condition of dealing
with the insurgents al all, and il
that condition is met, of course, it
will mean a speedy termination of

NELSON    RIDING.
In a leader yesterday Col. Prior's
name was inadvertently used in
place of Col.    Baker's.    Col.   Prior
is not in the Legislature.     It    was
General treated with such   discourtesy in the House a few days ago.
M'
Will
Mil LI.IPS' AMENDMENT
Not   Repeal   Alien   Law
Will   Modify   It.
Victoria, Feb. 8.��� McPhillips'
bill docs not repeal the Alien Law,
but is intended to modify it very
considerably It is to put in provisions to remove the disabilities
British
It is a quiet campaign���on the
surface, at any rate. There is an
entire absence of that intense excitement which marked the campaign in Victoria. That was a
triple tight, it is true, and this a
single one; but in the Nelson case
a Minster is defending his seat, and
that should count as much, or
nearly so, as that forlorn hope
against those three Opposition seats
in the Capital. Because quiet, however, it would be a mistake to suppose that either side is indifferent or
neglectful.    It is a still hunt.    The

.   ,,. ,     c ,..    .,,.������,;,,,   a,,a t,-, visers, is not specifically state*
unmindful   ot   the attention   clue to
the voter on such occasions, and
which thev are taking great pains
to pay in person. Surface appearances might indicate to the superficial inquirer that Mr. Hume despairs of election, and that Mr. bar-
well's friends are so sanguine that
they do not consider it necessan to
exert themselves. No doubt the
Minister of Mines is under that
depressing influence which comes of
a fear that defeat is surely awaiting
him, but tlie other side must not
take this as an assurance that they
may relax their efforts. It will be a
Ministerial defeat, but not achieved
without bard work.
The election will soon be on
Only four lawful working days remain, and then will come tbe balloting. Mr. Faiwell's canvass is
most encouraging, and fairly complete. Bul few remain who are
apparently still hesitating between
tlie candidates. The Miner, which
has no interests but those of Kootenay and tlie Province, is strongly
impressed with the conviction that
the Nelson Riding would make a
great mistake in electing Mr.Hum.*.
Not that Mr. Hume is personally in
any way objectionable, but fec*use
we would he committing ourselves
to the dangerous courses pursued
by those in whose hinds Mr. Hume
is but potter's clay. Mr. Martin,
who dominates the Cabinet,learning
nothing from experience, is endeavoring to rule with that offensive
assumption of superiority which
wore out the patience of his Manitoba friends and drove him from
the political life of thai Province,
While running bis race nothing will
be permitted to interfere with liis
progress.       Customs,     precedents,
the constitution Itself, must be made .
to bend to bis will.    The success of
such a man   can onl) be secured by
revolution dangeroubl) approximating to  anarchy,    li  should be the
duly of every elector to aid in des-; (Ellejusburg, i
troying  an   influence  thai   is and     Corporal Keudnll Ft
always has been distinctly bad.
Ibii in this Riding we have also
to consider onr   material    interests,
Mr. Hume  is   the  putative   lather,
hut Mr. Martin is   the real   one,   of
regulations and    legislation    calculated,   to    very   seriously   prejudice
the mining interests   of  Koolenay.
The man who would permit himsell
to be used for such a   purpose  cannot be a fit   representative   ol   the
miners of  Nelson Riding,    Should
wc elect Mr.   Hume we may expect
at the next session to sec  tlie  Alien
Placer legislation supplemented by
Alien    Quartz    legislation.    Todav
we exclude Americans from the   Atlin country, tomorrow   we will   exclude    them   from   the   Kootenay.
That will mean a sudden collapse of
mining development iu this country,
It   will    mean    the    suppression   ol   /*j(T5ll*    ^fflrifl

Whittaker's
Works, His Honor, the Lieutenant-; Deeds That Won the
Governor, as long ago as July last,
was asked to approveof an additional
appropriation for the Nelson Court
House. This His Honor was graciously pleased to veto. He was
at the time in communication with
Mr. Joseph Martin in respect to the
dismissal of the Turner Government, and the formality of a new one
more to His Honor's liking. This
is not a little story concocted for
election effect but is taken from a
letter written by His Honor himself
���at least His Honor's name is attached to it���and published as part
of the correspondence which occurred in connection with the arbitrary
change of Governments last August.
Whether His Honor was acting on
ihe advice of Mr. Joseph Martin   in
ad-
but
between the two of them, the Nelson Court House was dropped, con-
trav to the recommendation of the
Turner Government.

NEXT WEEK.
An Operatio Sooiety is Also on the Tapis
and  the   "Seisha" Will  b*)
Produoed-
Last Saturday the   Miunr   suggested
that au operatio sooiety   he   organized
in tho oity und also that a fuuoy dress
oarnival for some   charity   bn   given.
On Monday nn order  was   dispatched  to-night,
for thirty hooks of tho "Geislin"   und
yesterday afternoon it was decided   to
hold the oarnival 11 week from tonight.
An operatic   society   will   ho   formed
and the "Geisha," one   of   tho   most
tuneful and populur   operas   of   latter
years will   he   produced   after  Lent.
There is tin abundant supply of  talent
in the city to   fill   nil   lhe   purrs.    In
fact investigation has   shown   a   sup-
rising large number of people in   Nelson who are qualified to take   part   in
the production of a comic   opera   and
thnt tho performances will   ho   highly
artistic and the heat ever seen in   this
part of the country seems to be assured
already.   Mr. VV. A. Jowett, who has
hud considerable   experience   iu   conducting operas,   will   have   charge   of
the music.    A meeting   will   he   held
shortly to   organize   aud   prepare   for
the production.
Meanwhile, what promises to ho the
best carnival ever held in tht oity
will be given next Thursday evening.
It will he under the auspices of the

Among; Shipowners
NewYotk, Feb, 8.���The repoits
on the hurricane encountered in
mid-ocean on their lust westward
voyage by the big liners St. Louis,
Lucaniaand Lu Champagne have
made owners and agents of delayed
vessels somewhat uneasy regard ing
their ships. Sea faring men have
given up all hopes of ever seeing the
Britisher freighter Almida which
sailed from Shields, England, for
this port on December u> last, in
command of Captain A. McGregor
with a crew of 25 men. No incoming ship has reported speaking to
the Almida since she left the other
side. The missing steamer which
wits called the Cedar Brantih, is a
steel vessel of 1524 tons and carried
;t general cargo. The Almida pass-
passed Funnel Head,Scotland, Dec.

The Tweedie Trading Company's
steamer Catania from Glasgow December 21st which met ;t gale that
curried away the smokestack and
partly wrecked the upper works,
sought repairs at St, Michaels,
Azores, on January sixth last, three
days after tidings regarding the disabling of lhe vessel bad been
brought to London by the Mesba-of
ihe Atlantic Transport Line.
The Catania started from the
Azores for this port January 26 and
up to the pre icnl lime has not been
heard   from.     The    agents    of   the
Catania say the boat   mght to have
here several days   ago but has
been
probably been delayed by tbe Hurricane. The o\\ ncrs of purl of the
cargo on tbe Catania had it reinsured today. The overdue Tweedie
liner is an iron schooner rigged
steamer of 2933 tons. It is in
charge of Captain Furlong and hits
a crew of 35.
There is much interest as to the
identity of the British steamer
bound west which was .spoken to on
January 19 in latitude"43.6 longitude 57.27, by the Pennsylvania of
the Hamburg line. The British
vessel which is said to hnve displayed the signal letters, N.D.G.F.,
asked to be reported to her agents
in New York and reported all on
board were well. No vessel with
the code letters mentioned litis
entered an Atlantic port since.

A Grand Forks dispatoh   says:   The
Calumet mine near   WelliuKion   can?
12 mills from Grand Forks   has   just
been bonded by an English   syndicate,
The exact amount nf the lioud has  not
been made public, but it is known that
10 per cent of the purchase   price   was
paid.    The Calumet was located  about
five years ago and has been under bond
several timesfbefore.    It has consider-
i hie development   work   done   on   it.
Price  xijo owners of this property when  the
deal was made were   Richard   McCar 1
ren, ex city treasurer of Grand   Forks
and R. C. Johnston.    Work is to  start j
at once.    Major Leckie, who   recently
purchased the B. C. mine in   Summit
camp for -5300,000 has decided to  work
tbat mine on  a   different   basis   from ;
heretofore,    He has   ordered   a   mam- 1
moth   hoisting   plant   and    extensive
mining machinery and intends to   use
Che* present plant   at   the  mine only ��� Capl
temporarily,     It will    lie   remembered | Hesi
the B. C. mine was originally   owned
by John Keongh   of   Colville,    Wash.,
who sold that property to J.   H.    Harrison   for   $60,000   who   in   turn   recently sold the mine to  Major   Leckie
for $800,000.    The B. C. lies 13   miles
from Grand Forks.

R. C. Pollett recently purchased
the Nevada mineral claims for "thi
American Gold Mining company,
Tbe Nevada is situated on Porcu-
pinecreek, little overamile from the
railroad and about two miles from
tbe town of Ymir. Tbe Rio Grande
company's property adjoins this
claim, and the Jubilee, Sadie and
Rltie Eyed Nellie lie just across the
creek on the north. Tbe claim is
traversed by three ledtj.-s, the main
one being over 50 feet wide on the
surface and upon this most of the
woik is beinj^ done. At least Sioco
has already been expended up >n
this property. A shaft rive by seen
feet has been sunk on lhe main
ledge 35 feet deep, and thereon is a
substantial shaft. Some very fine
concentrating ore has been encountered near the bottom of the shaft
and from tests which have beet:
made it can be concentrated live
tons to one, the one ton of concentrate-giving $133 in values.
All of tbe rock or gangue which
'.'rnis the ledge is mineralized, and
upon having an average samole of
this rock assayed over $9 was returned, of which Sri was in gold: it
was also found capable of concentrating 25 tons to one, with a net
return of $113.76. It i- anticipated
that it will pay to put in a fair sized
concentrating plant in the neai
future, as should present indications
obtain this property will be on a self
sustaining basis by the end of tin
year. The property has been surveyed and is now in process ol
crown granting.
Hon. T. Mayne Daly, Ross
Thompson, ti. W, McBride and C.
K. Hcnn, in conduction with Mr
Pollett. have consented to act as
directors jf the company. There is
a limited   amount    of  promoters
stock, at quite a low figure, Still
open for purchase, the proceeds from
which will be applied to the advantage of the property, further development, etc.

Sad   Shooting  Affray  at  a   Fancy
Dress Ball.
Ne\vburgh, N. Y., Feb, 8.���Lottie Usher, 1S years old, was accidentally shot at a masquerade 1 all
this morning and lies in a precari.
ous condition at her home. Among
the guests at tbe ball was Michael
Rochan, who was dressed as a cowboy, and carried a pistol. While
the party was in a group to have a
flash-light photograph taken, Rochan playfully snapped his pistol at
them. There was a report and two
of the group fell to the floor. One
was Joseph Cuddy. The bullet cut
a gash across his forehead and
glancing, hit Miss Usher behind the
right ear. The bullet flattened out
and fractured the skull. Rochan
was tirrested. He said he borrowed the pistol and didn't know it was
loaded.
At the sitting of the Supreme
Court yesterday the case of Seattle
Vs.Clark lasted throughout the day.
\\ he"h the court rose one side of the
case was in. It will probably occupy
the attention of the. court during
today's sitting.
