1 moating of tho Froo State Volksraad
tomorrow, Thursday, will Iiave an important influence on the situation. A
otiriovis rumor is spreading in the lower ranks nt' the anny that Great Britain will he involved nt Afghanistan as
well aa the Transvaal.
London, Sept. in.���The correspondent of the Daily Mail at Petormaritz-
burg. Natal, telegraphed that the military authorities there have reoeived
warning from Johannesburg that the
Boers have purchased great quantities
of cyanide of potassium for the purpose
of poisoning the streams in the Truus-
vanl likely to he used by the British
troops. Other special despatches report various details of proportions for
war on both sides. Boer troops now
control B'ira and Newcastle railways
as ttey enter the Transvaal territory.
The British authorities are daily
shipping troops to South Africa
A SHORT CONTEST.
Pretoria,Sept. 10.��� The Volksraad as
a matter of busiueH today referred the
now draft law, providing for the confiscation of the property if persons
found guilty of treason and lese
raajeste to a special committee for the
consideration and report, At the request of President Kruger. the Chamber then went into secret session.
London, Sept. 19.���lt is annonnced
this ovening that the British first class
protected orui.ers Terrible nnd Powerful have been ordered to the Cape.
They have relief on board capable of
forming il naval brigade of 1,000 men.
Summonses were issued late this alter-
l.Min for a cabinet oonnoil,whioh, it is
understood, will be held Friday. This
is regarded as the result of the visit ef
Lord Salisbury to London, whenoe he
came tills afternoon, r- n lining at the
foreign   offlei    f.--    I      ���. to i>.;?0
p. m, Mr. .Icn. Chamberlain, the
Secretary cf State for the Colonies,waa
present in the building at the same
timo toil as a private doorway con -
ueots the offices, it is presumed thai
the summonses were the result of their
qaiel deliberation. The lack of all excitement in official circles hears ovi-
deuce ��� f the deliberate manner in
v hii r; the ii:-. Iiesi ��� - -: i i ��� .��� Is ,*-. handling
the ��� iisis. Nor is i' by any on -; s r r -
tain that the i abinet Council will
adopl extreme measures, in spite of the
micouipromising nature of tbe Boer 10-
ply. 'this deliberation on lb.- par! r.f
the Government is interpreted, nol
rriily in London, but m ether European
capitals, as a desire on tbe part of
Great Britaiu to gam time, while the
transports are hurrying to Cape Colony. The Berliner Kuostenaohrinhten,
commenting on this today says:
"The present calm is only meant to
deceive the Boers. When England feels
equal tu the task of facing the Boers
this peaceful tone will givo way to a
blatant ery for war. "
Bveu rumors of the movement of the
Boers across the Natal border apparently fails to excite tho military authorities here, who profess at least not
to fear such a contingency for the present, In the meantime the movement
ef troops continues.
rica. The .statement that the Boers
are sending compressed forage to the
Natal border, seems to signify that
(hey will not wait for new grass but
are preparing for an immediate advance. For this we certainly aro not
yot prepared. It is doubtful if the few
troops and volunteers now in Natal
could even maintain the defensive.
The Capo frontier, from Mafoking to
Kimberley, including the Diamond
fields, is practically defenceless, and a
combine;': attack by the Orange Free
State, and the Transvaal might result
in disaster and tbe retreat of our forces
towards Durban, leaving the border
towns in the bands ef the enemy.
Small wonder is it that tho movement
of the British troops into Natal has
not began a moment too soon."

London, Sept. 10.���The Pall Mall
Gazette prints a despatch from Capetown which says:
"The general impression is that the
Boers will at once take the initiative
and an attack ia expeoted at any hour.
"There is an unverified rumor from
Capetown today that the Boers havo
delivered another message to the British High Commissioner, Sir Alfred
Milner, moro conciliatory than yesterday's message. The rumor, however,
fails to obtain credence and is not
taken as in auy way mitigating the
seriousness of the crisis. The Uitland-
er press sees nothing but war ahead
and urges the TJtilandors to leave immediately.'1
The  Daily    Telegraph   publishes   a
communication  from a military corro
spondent who, discussing tho effects of1
the Free Stato throwing in its lot with
tlie Transvaal, says:
"In the event of war this will greatly increase our difllculties and will
lengthen the duration of the campaign,
but tho work will be accomplished
ami tho Union Jack will (bat over
consolidated South Africa between tbe
Zambesi and the Capo. Tbe principal
danger which besets the British position is a sudden outbreak of hostilities,
enabling the Boers to scouro a few minor successes, which would bring down
-pon us every Dutchman in South Af-
London, Sept. 10.���The steamer
.Teunga will take fino tioops hound for
Natal tomorrow, nnd she will embark
a rifle brigade at the Island of Crete
for the Oape. '
According to a despatoh from Dm--
bun. Natal, the Premier of tlie Colony
says that tho alarm of the people of
Natal at t'ne nonprotected condition of
border towns is quite unwarranted and
that all efforts to incite lhe Zulus have
failed.
Pretoria, Sept. 10.���The reply of the
Government lo the latest British note
is variously commented on by the Pretoria Press, printed in English and
Dutch and other papers profess to believe that a joint commission will yet
be held, aud there is slill a possibility
of an understanding being icaehed.
The Volkstein declared that in tin'
event of war. Holland will send an
ambulance corps to Ibe Transvaal.
Loudon, Sept. 10.���The Royal West
Sussex regiment left today for Malta,
where it will replace the First Border
regiment, which goes by tho sanie
Bteamer to Natal.
London, Sept. 10.-The lull ill tho
Transvaal crisis gives opportunity for
the continuance of unofficial negotiations. The Governmeut of tho Netherlands is privately exerting its influence in'fa.'orof a peaceful solution and
it is understood that President Kruger,
through Dr. Leyd, the Plenipotentiary
of tho South African Republic to llio
Governments of Europe, haa unofficially approached three powers with a
view to their intervention. From
Capetown a report that the Government of the Colouy contemplates introducing a motion in the Cape Assembly
urging the Transvaal to accept the-
demands of Great: Britain. Sir Alfred
Milner has addressed further inquiries
to President; Sleyn, of the Orange Free
State. Whatever tho offloial attitude
of the Orange Free Slate may he, the
temper of its burghers, judging from
numorous meetings held iu Bloomfoti-
tain and elsewhere, is to assist the
Transvaal accordingly. The Free
State commandants in Pretoria nre
now  discussing  the positiou with the
001) FELLOWS   CONVENTION.
Fifty Thousand Members Meet in
Detroit.
Detroit, Sept. 1���.--Nest year's convention of the Ot)d Fellows order will
he held in Richmond, Va. The streets
are bright today with the uniforme
and regalia of' Odd Fellows from all
parts of the country who are here attending the order's diamond jubliee.
Estimates place the entiro number of
Odd Fellows in the City at 50,000. At
the session of the Sovereign Grand
Lodge today, little business was done.
Wheu the call for new business was
announced so manv propositions were
presented that all were referred to
committees without leading.
AFTER  A CONFERENCE.
Washington, D. C. Sept. 10.-Today's cabinet meeting lasted longer
than usual. The cable of General Otis
informing tlie Secretary of War that at
Aguinaldo's request oue of his repre
seutatives would be allowed through
tbe American lines for a conference
with (ieueral Otis regarding tne release of American prisoners, was laid
before 'tbo meeting bv Secretary Bnr t
and discussed at some length.
Alluding to General Otis' dispatch
regarding a conference with insurgents
three of the Onbiret expressing their
opinion said that too much significance should uot be attached to Aguin-
aide's proposal. Secretary Rooi himself
said that so many similar conferences
in the nasi had oome to naught that he
doubted very much whether this one
meant anything toward tbe establishment of peace and goad order in the
islands,
FOREST FIRES.
Albany, N. Y., Sept. 19.���The protracted dry weather spell has oaused
the forest Ores in Adirondacks whioh
nave been smouldering, to start up
fresh, und they are increasing rapidly
in the northern part of the woods. Tho
flames nave been under control by a
cordon of nion under the superintend-
oncy of the lire warden. A threaten,
ing blaze is reported at Brant Lake,
town of Horicon, and numerous small
fires have started in the Red Horse
chain of lakes. In Ihe sontl ern por.
tion of the woods the fires are somewhat beyond ihe control of those wbo
aro endeavoring to beat the flames 1 aok
and subline tbem. Tremendous fires
have been burning near Hugneui for
the past few days, destoryiug farm
buildings and forests. In Warren
county there nre also large flies. Over
liioo men tire now engaged lighting
(ires in the woods.
SETTELMENT OF SUITS.
Viotoria, Sept. 19.���Mayor Redfern
has given notice of a resolution directing tho legal advisers of the corporation to negotiate with the claimants of
damages by the Point Ellico bridge
disaster, for a settlement of the suits
out of conrt. This is in consequence
of the recent decision of tho judicial
committee of the privy council, giving
damages against the city iu two test
erases.
TO MOB SPANIARDS.
Havana, Sept. 19.���An attempt was
made to rob, and perhaps lynch, the
Spaniards at Regla, a suhuib of Havana. The Spaniards had arranged a
dinner, which was just commencing
when the attack was made. Tbe mob
got tho impression that the dinner was
being given for political purposes. The
police intervened nnd managed to save
the banqueters, who said they wero bakers and that the dinner was merely
intended to celebrote tho suocess of the
recent strike.
Kid McCoy   After the   Middle Weight
Cbumpionsbip.
New VTork, Sept 19.���Kid MoOoy
knocked Steve O'Donnell nut in the
tith round. Chas. " Kid" McCoy bad
very little dilllully in geting away
with SlevoO'Donnell in the Broadway
Athletic Club tonight. For some years
there has been a faed in expectance
and they had fought a draw of ten
rounds in a local club house in tbe
presence of a lew members. O'Donnell
i< a clover boxer but McCoy is equally
clever and in addition be is a fighter.
Thn "Kid'' has proved this on many
occasions, and despite O'Doiiuell's advantages of height, reach and weight,
M< Coy went at him gradually, without taking any careless liberties and
scon had bis big adversary in hand.
O'Donnell never landed'a pood blow,
while the "Kid" was gaining ground
in each succeeding round. His left wis
always getting (o the face and wind
and O'Donnell was puzzled. He staggered frequently aud in the sixth
round went down from a left swing.
He remained down as long as allowed
him, bat it was all up with tho big
fellow'. McCoy went after bim with
swinging lefts and lights, and soon
floored him with another hard left
swing,from tho effects of which he was
unable io recover. Counted out in the
.'ixtii round, Steve hid to be assisted
to his coiner by the referee, while McCoy walked to his corner smiling and
without a mark. The bettiug opened
three to ono on MoOoy, bat these odds
were increased to 10 to one. with very
few takers. After the men had returned to their dressing rooms, McCoy
said:
"I will pest fl,000 tomorrow to
meet Hob Fitzsimmons for the title of
middle weight championship of the
world at ins pounds. My money will
remain up for U0 days and should Filz-
Biiutr.ous ignore my challenge I will
claim thia title nnd withdraw my
money, after which I will challenge
Fit_simmons at catch weights. This
ought to make him come to terms if
lie intends fighting anyone. If Fitz-
simmnns fails to defend the middle
weight championship I will claim and
defend it against aTI comers., negroes
barred. "
DREYFUS IS  PARDONED
He Has Relinquished His Appeal for a Reversal ef Judgment.
PRESIDENT VISITED EXPOSITION SITE.
Franca Not Affected by Fleeting Quarrels.   Is Still a
Strong Uniied Nation. -Her Mission is
Progress   and   Peace.
M. GUERIN SURRENDERS.
Paris, Sopt. Ill���The council of Ministers today decided to pardon Dreyfus
in principle. The pardon will take
effect iu a few days.
Dreyfus has relinquished his appeal
for a revisal of the judgment of the
Oourt-Martial.
London, Sept. 111.���Tho Rennes correspondent of the Daily Telegraph
wired ut il o'clock last evening says :
"There is reason to believe that
Dreyfus is already ont of prison and
with his wife he will probably ler.v6
Rennes tonight."
Seige  Ends   in Sublimely Bidioulous
Style.
Paris, Sept 19.-At 11:80 tonight
M. Lueien Millevoye, one of the deputies for the department of the Seine,
accompanied by the brother of M.
Jules Guerin, thu anti-Semite agitator,
entered the Grand Occident, the building in the Rue de Ohnbrol, where
Guerin and his companions have long
been beseiged. They left the building
at 1 :S0 o'clock. M. Millevoye's mission was a failure, lt is said he
strongly urged Guerin to surrender,
hut tbe latter imposed impossible conditions.
Later���-4:80 a. in.���At 4 o'clock this
morning, M. Guerin promised to surrender. Tbere has been considerable
military activity in the Rue de Chub-
roi throughout the night..
Precisely at the hour appointed, a
Captain of the Municipal Guards rapped at the door of Fort Ohai roi. There
was a moment of expectation, and
then the door opened and M. Guerin
calmly presented himself meekly sur
rendering to theguard and was driven to
the poliec depot in an open cab, seated
beside the Captain of the guards.
Thus tho six weeks' seige ended in
sublimely ridiculous style.
Paris, Sept. IS).���The Press this evening say  :
"Dreyfus withdrew his appeal today. This was the'various formalities' mentioned in tbe official communication as'remaining to be fulfilled'
before the pard.ru would be signed.
"The traitor will bow be set free
and bo able to give lectures in England and America on the secrets of
the iron safe iu the Etat Major Du-
reaux."
President Loubet visited the site of
tbe Exposition of lfluO today and urged
tbe directors of the work to exert
themselves to tbe utmost in order to
show th world in ihDii tbat France is
still a strong, laborious, united nation,
whoso generous soul is filled with tbe
Bams sense of tier iiii-'sirei to progress
and peace, and that she had not been
affected by fleeting quarrels,

London, Sept. 19.���The Evening
News declares there is UO need to boycott the Paiis Exposition.
The Truth, Mr. Henry Labour-hero's
paper protesting against a universal
condemnation of France on account of
the Dreyfus case, says:
"I believe there are many Americans with whom the innocence of Mrs.
Florence ��� Maybrick is an article of
faith. Tbo 1 idy, in the meantime, is
enjoying the hospitality of an English
prison as a convicted murderess. Nevertheless, the American journals, although by no means reticent in tho
expression of their opinions, do not
denounoe English justice as a disgrace
to civilization, the English people as
lost to all sense of right, aud Liverpool
where   she   was   sentenced, as  an accursed city."
Paris, Sept. 19.���The decision of the
Cabinet to pardon   Dreyfns creates less
i interest in Paris thau would the result
of a big horse race. In fact it may be
stated   that   it   caused   no excitement
j whatever.    Thero  was no  rioting  on
j the boulevards. In front of tho offices
of   the   Libro   Parole, where a crowd
| usually assembled in the evening, to
gaze upou the huge colored transparencies outside the windows of the
leading anti-Semite there was not the
slightest gathering or the faintest sign
of a demonstration either for or
against Dreyfus. One would think
that the firo of Dreyfus agitation had
burned itself out. The anti-Dreyfus
evening papers tried to infuse interest
into tho Government's action by a rabid attoek upou President Loubet, but
their efforts were futile. The peaceful
crowds that filled the tables in front
Of tlie cafes sipping their afternoon
coffee and cognac, looked at the newsboys, who disp'ayed the front pngo of
these sheets, with their violent bead-
linr s. bnt, utterly refused to get excited. The majority did not even discuss
tin' malter, or only made the passing
remark that the decision was just what
had been expeoted ami predicted by
every Parisian newspaper since tho
Rennes Court-Martial delivered its
verdict. The. anti-Dreyffusard newspaper, Le Soir, had the most sensational caption, two lines of enormous
letters extending across the entire
frout page, announcing "The Traitor
Dreyfns Pardoned���Outrage on tho
Army." Then in the course of an article, violently attacking President
Loubet, it says:
"Loubet has given himself a coupde
grace in pardoning Dreyfus. He should
he prosecuted for committing an outrage on the army; for his decision
amounts to this; by a stroke of tbo
pen he bas destroyed the effect of the
sentence of two Court-Murtials and has
declared that two military courts have
lied." The Soir adds: "The affair
has become grave, when the chief of
the state assumes the leadership of the
anti-military movement and pardons a
confessed traitor under the pretext that
he has been condemned twice instead
of onee.''
ROSSLAND  MAY   HAVE NO GAS.
Rossland Miner; The citizens of
Rossland who have been expecting the
new gas company who reoently obtained a franchise to snpply gas to bieak
ground on their venture and get to
work generally according to the profuse promises made at the time the
franchise was applied for, will receive
a shock to learn tnat according to Dr.
Doolittle, "We have been unable to interest capital in Toronto, owing to the
stringent terms of the agreement mada
with the city," aud that au extension
uf the time raentionod in tin' agreement and a modification of the terms

remembered that the agreement iu

WHERE JS THE BLAME?
The Kootenays have been in process
of development for several years.   When
it became known there were gold and
silver and copper and load in great
abundance, it was not lonn before there
was capital on tho move to get them
out. It came fiist from the United
States, then from England, then from
Eastern Canada. Not in unlimited
amounts,but sufficient to make a splendid showing. Mines wero opened out,
and miners came flocking in. These
latter were employed at good wages
and set to work. They worked fen
hours a day, for which they received
$8.50. The employers and men got on
well together, thero being no complaint on either side. The wage was a
generous one, and the men worked
cheerfully to earn it. As capital came
in, attracted by the excellent promise,
more of them were employed, and here
and there all over the Kootenays the
sound of the miner's hammer could be
heard. Prospects were hoi ng changed to
mines, smelters arose, shipments became active, ond dividends came to
gladden those who had ventured their
capital in the Kootenay mountains.
Year hy year this development increased, and at the beginning of the
present one, with the pleasantest of relations between employer and employed, we were nil looking forward to the
most prosperous season in the history
of the country.
There was not a sound of discontent
anywhere. The men welcomed the
capital that made employment for
them, and capital rejoiced to discover
that Kootenay mines would make a
rich return for money judiciously invested. It is well to keep in mind
this entirely satinfur-tory situation as it
existed up to the beginning of the present year. Then it was that some pro-
fesioual agitators wno livo on working-
men went secretly to Miuis-
ters and members of the Legislature to
get an amendment to the law that
would reduce the working day to
eight hours. The amendment was
passed as secretly as it was arranged.
The employers bad no warning of it.
This was tho first disturbance of a
condition under which Kootenay mines
were being developed with satisfaction
to all connected with them. The employers bad invariably made their
plans on tho basis of a ten-hour day,
nnd the men bad heen working ten
hours without a murmur. This
amendment, without notice or warning, out down the day to eight hours. So
far at any rate there had been nothing
to bring blame on the employers. They
came with their capital to make employment for the miners; they and the
miners had agreed on the length of the
day and the wage ; they had gone on
for years under tbo arrangement with
satisfaction to both, and then suddenly
the Legislature, at the instance of men
who work mainly with their jaws, cut
in with a law to reduce the day by
twenty por cent.
We   have  said   that so far no blame
could attach to tho employers.    We do
not   think   that   so far   anyone  could
be so reckless of   judgment and speeoh
us to ascribe blame.    Very well.   Theu
comes  the   professionals     to  demand
that   the employers shall pay the same
wage   for   eight   hours   as   they  hud
formerly  paid  for  ten.    Where is the
blame if  they refuse to submit to this
demand? The miners as a class are intelligent men; many of  them are reasonable men.    Let   them   go back over
tho whole situation, aud   then  answer
to their consciences if thev think they
ure   ill-used   hy   employers  who have
had   their   operations  disarranged   by
tbe  reduction   of   the  day   and their
manhood challenged  by a demand   for
the old wage. If honest they must admit
that the employers are not  responsible
for the troubles of today, and that they
have a perfect right to hold  out.    The
blame   is   not   with them.    If  blame
there is, it must be  located elsewhere.
The  employers   hnve broken no faith,
violated uo  agreement, abused no confidence,     repudiated    no    obligation.
And   the   men   must   remember  that
they  aro   as  much   entitled to regard
what they believe to be their Interests
as tho miners have   to  regard   theirs.
Look   at   it as wo may, the employers
are blameless.   We do not any th. men
aro   to   blame; bnt their  professional
leaders ure, and   the  men are culpable
in so far as tbey yield themselves to
their mischievous purposes The Miner does not deceive itself by supposing
tbat it enjoys tlie regard of the men ;
yet tho men have no better friend than
The Miner, and its sincere advice to
hem is to throw over their leaders aud
make a manly advance towards a settlement of tbis uubappy trouble.
At this writing the dispatches have
not indicated how tho Boer reply to
Mr. Chamberlain's last note is received in Lou ion, but it is impossible to
suppose that it can be legardert as satisfactory. And if not satisfactory,
there is nothing for it but war. Mr.
Chamberlain's note was of the nature
of an ultimatum ; the Transvaal's re-
p'.y is an evasion, which on tin face of
it is intended to be final. Mr. Chamberlain is lhe last man iu England to
back dowu, and ns the game of diplomacy is apparently played out there is
no recourse hut to arms. Tbe eleventh
hour is far spent, and it is rather lute
to indulge fresh hope, hut if this
trouble could be spared the Empire it
would be a jcy to the most of us. It
would seem, however, that Boer
obduracy is too great to overcome ; and
besides, the air ill South Africa needs
clearing. Many things require ridding
up, and one of them is to make the
Boers of our own colony at the Cape
know their place. At present they regard themselves as British subjects
who are free to defy British authority;
the explosion of some gunpowder will
soon correct this little misapprehension.
A respectable newspaper does not
care to publish a letter unaccompanied
with the name of the writer, even
thotigh it may he innocent of personalities and deals only with an abstract
proposition. But we feel constrained
to make an exception in favor of the
following:
"Dear S<ir���Will you kindly allow
me space for a few remarks on the
Eight Hoar law. I am an advocate for
the eight-hour day, because I think
that a longer indulgence than eight
hours at one time in any particular occupation is apt to he harmful; and
moreover, I am convinced that continuous application for eight hours will
accomplish as much as can be dono in
ten. I am not 0 working miner myself,
my profession being what I may call
"Practical Alcoholic Expert," and I
feel sure from my own personal experience, that with earliest attention to
the work in hand, I can drink in eight
consecutive hours as much whiskey as
I, or any other ordinary man,can drink
in ten. I am prepared to challenge
the members of the Mine Owners' Association to test the matter (they supplying the whiskey), and if any one of
them can drink more straight "rye"
in ten hours than I can in eight, I
will turn scab and drink for ten hours
hereafter as long as the liquor lasts ;
though I shall not change my opinion,
that a longer period than eight hours
tends   to    impair    the    constitution.
yours truly, BUM GUZZLER."
We are afraid Bum Gi zzlor
bilities as an eight-hour drink
nothing beyond the barren fact that he
has an enormous capacity for cheap
whiskey.
s capa-
r proves
The Victoria voters' list has been
obliterated by Order-in-Ooun.il, and
the newspapers 011 both sides aro urging the oitizens not to neglect the new
registration. Ono of them, The Glnbo,
to awaken interest in tho matter, ventures to predict a general election before December next. The advice is
good enough to act upon without tho
prospect of au early election, and if
tba duty has been neglected by any
who are entitled to vote in the Nelson
Ridiufj' they cannot do better than to
attend to it at once.
Mr. Wm. Mackenzie, the senior and
principal member of the firm of Mackenzie, Mann & Co..railway contractors and owners, says that they aro
buildiug a second transcontinental
line. No muii is less given to ulle or
boastful talk than Mr. MacKeuzie, and
when he says this it may he taken to
he the actual truth, The fact is one
of great interest and importance, ami
the time is near at band when much
will be heard of it.

A GUN FOR NELSON
THE KIFLE OOM PAN! TO BE SUPPLIED WITH A MAXIM.
It is Probable That Two Oompanies  Will
be Enrolled Here and also in
hossland.
Tbe excellence of the Nelson Kiflo
Company has been reoognizen at last.
For a lone time it suffered from neglect, and nothing on earth seemed to
make the authorities at Ottawa know
that such a body of our country's defenders existed. But that was a long
time ago, and a change has since come
over the spirit of the Ottawa leaders.
Uniforms, rifles, an instructor, and
other evidences of a friendly interest
followed one another in quick succession until the company became very
well equipped. Yesterday news was
received by Capt. Hodgins that an np-
to date Maxim gun was on the way
and would be here shortly. Tho officers
aud men of the company are greatly
delighted with their good for fortune
and there will likely be a rush for
places in the gun squad. This squad
will consist of six men. The Maxim
is mounted like an ordinary small cannon with light wheels about four feet
high. It uses the same ammunition as
that used by the ordinary rifle, but its
mechanism is such that by turning a
crank one thousand bullets can be fired
in a miuute. In fact it works so hard
that cold water is put some place in it
to keep it oool, but this water boils
before the minute is up. It bus not
yet been introduced in kitchens as n
rapid water boiler, but would no doubt
prove a brilliant success iu this capacity if the supply of cooks would hold
out.
Major General Hutton, commander
ot Ihe Canadian militia, will he in Nelson in the course of a mouth to inspect
the Nelson company. It is probable
that bis visit will mean that both hero
and in Rossland tbe corps will be
raised to Battalion strength, ami that
two companies will be allowed in each
city. This will hnve the effect of
greatly increasing (he eflieiency of tbo
Kootenny volunteers as, competition is
as lunch the life of militia ns of anything psle and with another company
in Nelson, for which there is ample
material, the present one would be further improved and lhe other raised to
lhe same standard of proficiency.
Sergt. Inst. Carroll, who put the
local company through uu.ih an excellent course ot instruction with vt-r?
gratifying results some weeks ago, arrived yesterday from Rosslaud, where
he drilled the company ot that city for
a month. He will remain hern for a
few days nnd tomorrow nis;ht will in-
Bpeot the Nelson company. A full
turnout is requested. Last night Sergt.
Carroll was entertained hy some of the
oflicers and meu of the Nelmiu company. On Friday morning he leaves
for Kamloops to instruct the company
thore. Before leaving Rossland he was
tendered a banquet nnd presented with
a well filled purse ns a tokon of his
popularity with the Rossland volunteers.
ROSSLAND STREET RAILWAY.
The Citizens  There Are a Little Dark
as to tho Promoters Thereof.
The Rossland Miner is troubling itself about the people that are going to
build the streot railway there, or at
leas'; who are going to apply for permission to do so.    It snys:
"The Mayor waa seen Inst evening
with reference to the proposed street
railway, bnt His Worship said that the
formal application hud not yet, reached
him. When Mr. Macdonuld,' of Nelson,
had applied to him iu tho mutter he
had given the applicants a plan of the
city and had suggested what in his
opinion weie the best routes for the
oompany to cover within the citv limits. The company applying for the
franchise propose to operate it under
tbe name of the "Rossland & Sophie
Mountain Eleotrio Railway, Limited. "
The application is signed by Oaptain
T. J, Duncan and W. A, MncDoiiuld,
but just wlio they represent is not certain. It bus been stuled thill the Can
Bdlnn Pacific were interested iu the
scheme. In the application for fl similar franchise in Nelson last month the
application wus singed by Y. W. Peters nnd T. .1. Duncan of thnt city, and
it is asserted that the combination
running tho Nelson line is the same
organization applying in Rossland at
the present time. "
^ Por the information of The Miner if
might be well to state that it is to
Nelson gentlemen, and not tho Canadian Pacific, thnt Rossland is indebted
for the applicntion for n charter. The
Rossland company will be a subsidiary
company of the British Electric Trnc-
tion "Jompuny, which is the pnreut
oompany of the one building the line
in Nelson. There is absolutely nothing
mysterious nbout the affair at all.
C. W. RILEY RESIGNS.
The Manager of the Athnbnsco Mino
Will Strike Out for Himself.
0. W. Riloy, who for two und a half
years has been foiemun of the Athabasca miue, and under wli.im the mine
bus been developed trom thn prospoct
stnge to what it is todny, bus resigned
nnd AngiiH Iliirkshaw bus been np-
poiutod iu bis plaoe. Mr. Rilny is
about to strike out for himself, nnd
leuves for the ooiiBt at the end of the
weok.    ft   is  probable,  however, thut
bis future operations will be conducted
in this part of the oountry. During
his connection with the Athabasca he
has made himself popular with both
the management and the men, and it
is with reluctnnco that both see him
go. On Monday night Mr. Riley was
wailed upon nt the mine by the whole
force of the miners working under
him ��� nbout eighty ��� nnd presented
with a handsome gold chain and suitably engraved pendant. The presentation was made on behalf of the miners
by the shift boss, Mr. W. B. Hndsou,
who made a very appropriate aud neat
address.
At the same time Mr. Angus Hack-
sbiivv presented Mr. Riley with an elegant gold looket set witli a diamond
ou behalf of a few of Mr. Riley's
former associates at the mine. Mr.
Riley made a feeling replv.
Thero is nn scarcity of men at the
Athabasca mine. Over eighty are on
tho pay roll, and this month will be
0110 of the busiest in the history of the
miue.
INSULT TO SIWASHES.
An Alarmist Laboring Man Pays a
Poor Compliment to the Red Man.
Early yesterday morning Mr. Wm.
Thompson, the man who holds more
positions limn any other man in Kootenay, was waited upon by an excited
working man who stated that in digging in the excavation for the Turner-
Beeton bonded warehouse ho had come
across u box covering the dead boy of
n Siwnsh iufant. Mr. Thompson pondered a moment to deoide in which
capacity he should visit the scone and
pioked out one of his more dignified
jfflces, in order that a delay for brenk-
fnst would not bn out of place. He has
never made a practice of discovering
dead bodies before breakfast, for he
hns found that the only gainer, when
such haste was exercised, was his
boarding house keeper. Consequently
he bad breakfast, and th.in visited the,
scene of the discovery. Tho box was
reverently lifted to a point of vautnge,
and sure enough, inside wus a smnll
body, wrapped in a regular Siwasli
blanket. Tbe interested group bared
iheir heads us Mr. William .1. Thompson, C. V. D., F. I., S. 1., F. W., W.
0., A. 0. P., P. 0 , B. I., etc., etc.,
etc., unwrapped the blanket and disclosed the body of a little brown dog.

has sent fn Colorado for an experienced

This is tin- same system as is employed

Important developments in the labor
trouble are expeoted in a few days in
the shape of news from Rossland. Most
of the contracts whioh were let to miners will expiri shortly aud a crisis of
some sort may follow. Organizer
Wilks in his official canacity as being
snported by tlie unions, issued a fiat
some months ago that union men were
not to accept contracts unless it was
guaranteed hy the mine owners that
each man conld earn $8.60 in oj_��lit
hours. Had his authority been left unchallenged it is probable that no moro
contracts would bo let and that mines
in the Rossland camp would be closed
down. But Ralph Smith, tho recognized head of the labor forces iu the Province, and their representative in the
local House, when iu Rossland tbe
other day, "turned down" Mr. Wilks
in a very emphatic manner, and said
that contract work was quite in order
for union men, aud that no minimum
earnings need bo guaranteed. So what
follows will depend ou the relative
strength of the two leaders. If Mr,
Wilks is the stronger, trouble is imminent, but if Mr. Smith's wise counsel
is followed there will likely he a renewal of contracts in the Rossland
camp. At present Mr. Wilks is spend
ing the miners' money ou a trip to
Moutreal, where ho is attending i labor convention as their representative,
and if he stays out of the country long
enough things will likely go quietlj
on. The Rosslnnd owners, it is understood, will nssi'rt their rights together
with the Nelson district aud Slocan
owners. The miners are becoming
verv tired of tht whole trouble, for
they find that the more trouble nnd l^ss
work there is, the more union dues
they are called  upou to pay.
the Industrial market. British Columbians have heen fairly good, British
Amerioan Corporation have been active, and have reoovpied a temporary
set baok, Le Roi, however, is still
very ijuiet, hut a revival cannot be
very far off, and the prices remain
about tho same It is the general idea
of many brokers thnt this market will
be very active this fall, as the British
publio arc certainly looking this way
and several ii"\\ companies are getting
their shares underwritten with fair
success, bnt the market is not active
enough for tbe companies to issue their
prospectuses yet.

Markets   Generally   Dull ��� Transvaal
Complications the Cause.
London, Sept. !!.��� (Special correspondence to the Miner.)���Since mv
last report great many members of the
Stock Exchange are still away holiday
making, with the exception of those
members whose market they have to
watch, as the political news from the
Transvaal is as little understandable
today aH it was a month ago. This
section of the milling market is still
in a very agitated humour, and it will
be certainly better if hostilities Bhould
break out, then the market would go
to its propel lovol, but until this happens, tho pulrlic hold from taking a
hand in this particular market, though
they stand steady. In the West Australian market there has been u healthy
reaction, as this market was certainly
going ahead beyond their Intrinsic
value. This market is the only active
ono with the exception of the American railways, whioh aro still on Ilin
rise, Iu Iho railway market of both
the Grand Trunk and tho Canadian
Pacific railways, I feel sure thai the
prices of both these stocks will continue in the direction they have again
started, on tho latter partioularrly cannot be dear at par,and as they are likely soon to ho ou a six per eont. basis it
w0'ild in no way surprise me to see
them stand at 1.0 before the end of the
year. Thero has heen a lot of good
buying by well known firms who generally know what they are doing.
American rails have rooovered after a
fall on the early days of the week, and
now they have a steady appearance.hut
I   should not be surprised to find them
nt_., several  little nps and downs for a
few days, and then   it    is   likely   that
the Milwaukee dividend may moke all
tho difference to which way the next
general movo is to he. I am inclined
to think the distribution will prove to
be lhe samo as last time, but with the
important addition of  Is  bonus which
would  be  satisfactory,   English rails
