ADMIRAL DBWBT IN
Tbe Admiral Receives an Impressive Welcome.
A NATION'S GREETINQ.
breakfast when Sir Thomas Lipton
culled on him,
Willi Sir ThomUS were Dr. Mackuy
nud other visiting Englishmen,
"I   suppose  you  have come for the
tea." Bald   Admiral   Dewey, referring
[to Sir Thomas' gift   of   live pounds of
tea   to   each   man  ou   ship  while at
Colombo,
"No.you're welcome to it if anybody
can drink it," replied Sir Thomas,
The Admiral uml tbo owiier of the
oup ohallenger bad a 16 minuutes'
talk. As Sir Thomas and Ins friends
loft the Olympia half a hundred of tho
ship's crow forward cheered the baronet.
The Olympic Takes  Her Plaoe at the
Head of tbe American Naval
Column,
WILL ACCEPT AMERICAN  RULE.
New York,Sept 27. ���Admiral Dewey
roao early today anrt could bo seen from
Atlnntin Highlands paoing 'ho Olym-
pia's quarter deck. The warship was
surrounded by all manner of sailing
and steam craft,inoluding a number of
newspaper boats, which bad remained
iicnr tho flagship all night. An outward bound British steamer saluted
as she passed, with her small cannon.
There was no answering boom of guns
from the flagship, hut a string of signal Hags were sent aloft in response.
An official visit was pud to Dewey
by Major Burbank, commandant at
Fort Hancock, and his staff. The visiter was met at the gang plank and
escorted to the Admiral's cabin, where
they spent half an hour, When they
returned to shore all the members of
the military parly were enthusiastic
ever their reception.
Thousands that greeted Dewey and
the Olvmpia hud the satisfaction of
seeing the hero of Manila as he stood
on the superstructure with Assistant
Secretary Allen and Captain Lnmber-
ton, He repeatedly doffed bis cap to
the cheering crowds in returning their
salutes. It was explained today that
while Dewey and Rear Admiral
Howison both outrank Rear Admiral
Sampson, there will be no ohauge in
the arrangement giving Sampson full
control over the naval demonstration
in Dewey's honor. Howison will be a
guest at the ceremony but his presence
will not interfere with Sampson.
New York, Sept. 27,-Throngh frolicking whito cups tho Olympia moved
majestically np the lower bay today
and passed through the picturesque
straits guarded by Forts Wadsworth
and Hamilton, amid the booming of
great guns, and there, inside the city
Ku'es, Admiral Dewey and his gallant
tnrs received the glorious, thunderous
welcome of the steel walled men-of-
war, as the stately ship glided up to
her position at the head of the corhmn,
there to remain until the great naval
pageant Rtarts on Friday. Never, per-
hups, did a triumphant warrior returning from a victorious campaign receive
a mere impressive welcome. Although
thousands upon thousands witnessed
it, from shore, balcony, window or
bouse top, and tho man of war anchorage at Thomkinville, where the fleet
lay, fairlv swamped with tugs, yachts
and Mourners and every sort of harbor
craft, all jet black with wild cheering,
exulting people and towering white
Walls of the city beyond, were bravo
With a million welcoming (lags today.
The greeting to Dewey wns the greatest by bis oomrades of the navy, and
it was ei inontly living lhat bis comrades in arms Hhould have the Hist
ohauce .it bim whom the millions fere
waiting to honor l he people will i-u-
fiin to get ut him on Friday und Saturday. To outward appearance, the
welcome he received from the fleet,
was strictly professional. One can find
salutes, the trumpet flourishes, tbe
drum ruffles, tho parading of the marine guard and all the rest of tho cero-
nionies done in hiH honor today, described iu the naval regulations as duo
to one of his rank. But that only impressed the mind the more because
even naval regulations, rigorous and
mielastic us they are,could uot restrnin
we pent-up enthusiasm when it broke
fl)rth, as it did   occasionally, in ronud
leers, any more than it could the bell
cl
cords of the skippers and the joy mad
people aboard the excursion boats.
Cheering is not permitted by the naval
regulations aboard men-of-war, but no
"proof followed today's breaches of
discipline.
Aguinaldo Invites Deserters to Return
���A Pardon for Them.
Manila, Sopt. 27.���Tbo American
authorities Have deolined tbe request
of General Jaranulle, the Spanish officer who is settling Spain's military
affairs in the Philippine islands, to
send a vessel under the Spanish flag to
collect the Spanish prisoners nt the in-
siii'gi-ii's' ports us stipulated hy the
Filipinos on the ground that tho ports
lire closed, that such a Rtep then-fore
������v ill be unlawful, and because they declined to accent the Philippine dictation. Tbe authorities are ready to sond
un American vessel, 'the Spanish commission, therefore, will return to the
insurgent lines and endeavor to establish an arrangement for tho delivery
of the prisoners on board an American
vessel. Aguinaldo has issued a statement saying the warlike activity of
tbe Americans has prevented the con-
ennfration of the prisoners as intended,'
but   that  they would be delivered up.
The Tagals of the island of Miudano
have expressed their readiness to accept
American sovereignty iu exchange for
protection against the harassing Moros.
A native officer has offered Major Gen-
ernl Otis 1,000 Maccabebe tribesmen to
tight Tagals of the Lagunn Bay district.
Tho troops eugaged in fighting at
Cebn lelonged to the 19th infantry,
sixth infantry, '23rd infantry and sixth
artillery. The insurgents are trying
to incite the natives of Malaben, a oity
of 80,000 inhabitants, five miles from
Manila, to rise against the American
garrison. Captain Allen has b.en holding the place with two companies of
the 16th infantry, but on account of
the need of all available men at tbe
front, his force has been reduced to 70
men. They now remain near the big
church where they art) quartered,being
ton few in numbers to attempt to patrol the town. The armed uniformed parties of insurgents recently disembarked during the night, collected
money for tho insurrection and preached revolt. Two Mayors have been elected, but both of them have declined to
serve. Malabon has been made the
shipping point whonce provisions aud
other stuff is brought from Manila by
trains and shipped into the hostile territory. The insurgents seem to bo trying to niauo by their good treatment
of the American prisoners, a card by
which to gain outside sympathy. Two
Englishmen who have arrived here
from Tarlac, report that the Americans aro treated more like guests than
prisoners. Thoy are fed on tbo best
that, the country affords aud everything is done to gain their favor. A
Filipino paper says that on the occa
sion of a recent fete at Vittoria in
celebration of the mythical Filipino victory, the American prisoners there, were given the freedom of the
camp and five pesos each, with which
to celebrate the victory. Tbe Englishman also says tbe Filipinos bave offered all the Americans commission* in
thu army and that thre- of them accepted. This is uot; believed. American officers unrth of Manila tell the
correspondents of the Associated Press
that Ajininuldo is trying to enforce
good government after the American
fashion, ordering bis soldiers to suppress a band of prisoners, three of
which were executed. Ho has also
prohibited gambling in the villages
under bis control. Paterno, the president of iho so-called Filipino cabinet,
has fallen into disfavor among the Filipinos on account of his peaoo proclivities. They suspect him of planning to
repeat his treachery of the former insurrection, when he went over to the
Spaniards, and they may expel him.
Aguinaldo haB issued a decree inviting
Filipino deserters to return within u
month,in which case they will be pardoned.
ARE GOING TO THE CAPE
Ordered Transports and Supply for Army
Corps to be in Readiness.
FEELING OF UNREST IS INTENSIFIED.
An Armored Train Left Capetown for Ladysmith.
chanaland Border Closely Patrolled Day and
Night.���Boers Purchase Grain.
Bue-
New     York,     Sept.     27.���Admiral
Dewey was   just   finishing  a  midday
Manila, Sept. 27.-Generals Mc-
Arthur and Wheaton and Wheeler,
with fonr regiments, advanced at daybreak tbis morning upou Purac, about
8 miles northwest of Bacolerin, Pam-
gauga Province.
London, Sopt. 27.���The Transvaal
situation remains unchanged, though
a feeling of gloom has deepened. Cablegrams from Pretoria and Capetown
show that the general inipressinn prevails there that the Boers will net recede from thoir position, and the feeling of unrest at Pretoria has been
intensified Despatches today announce
that the Transvaal Government has
begun to appoint officers to go to the
front in case of hostilities. Tbe Executive Council of the Transvaal had a
piolonged sitting yesterday and has
been in constant communication with
the Orange Free State. No decision,
it is now said, regarding the attitude
of the Free State has yet been reached.
Pretoria. Sept. 27.���The Transvaal
reply to the despatoh of Mr. Chamberlain will be draftod today and submitted to tho Raad in secret session.
Members appear convinced that Great
Britain is determined on war. Being
anxious not to force Great Britain's
hand, tho Boers will not take any definite steps until the draft of their reply
is considered, but notice has been
issued to Burghers to be in readiness
for commandering. which will be commenced shortly. The Orange Freo
State Raad continues in secret session.
London, Sopt. 27.���A telegram from
Johannesburg says an American named
Blake is raising an American corps of
live hundred men for the Boers. Ou
the Cape side, despatches show great
military activity in the direction of
the frontier. Tbe camp at Duudee now
consists of two regiments of infantry,
one Hussar regiment, two field batteries, one mountain battery and detach
in en t of engineers. Tbe King's rifles
aie now encampel at Ladysmith, and
tho Fifth Lancers are arriving there.
An armored train left Capetown at
midnight for Ladysmith. The outfit
is looped for rifles nnd machine guns,
and is capable of carrying 120 men.
T.he Buechanalund border is closely patrolled day and night. It is reported
that the Boer agents ha-e made large
purchases of grain at Durban. The
war office has ordered whole transport
and supply for army corps to prepare
to proceed to the Cape. This is a very
important order and means an early
despatch of an army corps. Men of 25
companies are being immediately examined at Aldershot today. In spite
of these warlike preparations South
African circles still believe that there
will be no war and that tne Boers will
finally concede British demands.
FELT FOR MILES AT SEA.
LONDON LETTER.
San Francisco, Sept. 86.��� The earthquakes which shook up the Alaskan
ooast early in Septemher made themselves felt miles at sea. Three vessels
which have arrived from the northern
salmon fisheries report experiencing
most peculiar weather on Sunday, September 8, tbe date of the first earthquake. Captain Charles Johnson,of the
bark B. P. Cheney, which was opposite Kodiak on September 8, reports
that the most unusual weather was experienced, the barometer having fallen
rapidly. Captain Thompson,of the bark
Nicholas Thayer, from Alaska, also
noted the peculiar climatic conditions
on September 8. The I. J. Morse was
likewise caught in the gale which followed the upheaval along the north
coast.
MAY   BE   TROUBLE.
Auckland, N. Z., Sopt. 27.-Advices
from Samoa, under date of September
20, received here loday, say that quiet
prevails there, but the feeling among
the whites is that tbme is trouble
ahead. It is added that Von Buolow,
the former lieutenant in the German
army, who organized the forces of
Mataafa, hus been going about the
country interviewing the Mataafa
chiefs. This is objected to by the British aud Americans as likely to accentuate the hostile feeling.
The correspondent of the Cologne
Gazette at Samoa has received cable
instructions to remain at Apia.
LANDSLIDES IN HIMALAYAS.
Caloutta, Sent. 27.���No rain has fallen since last reparts in the vicinity if
Dinjeling, in the lower Himalayas,
where ou Sunday night grout damage
was wrought and many people killed
by earthquakes and landslides.
During tho night several landslides
occurred. The Phool Bazaar was completely overwhelmed aud 200 persons
lost their lives. At Tamsongbustee 21
bodies have boen recovered, and it is
believed that 20 others perished. At
Darjeing 1 DO fatalities occurred.
ANOTHER VICTORY.
New York, Sept. 27. ���At the Len-
nox Clnb tonight "Kid'' McCoy
knocked out Juck McOonnick in the
8th round.
Not Very Happy Times for Speculators
and Investors.
London, Sept. 10.��� (Special oorre
spoudeuce to The Miner.)���Investors
and speculators on this side of the
water aro not having just now very
happy times, as tbe continual warlike
rumors of President Kruger is certainly doing a great doal of harm to the
weak bull speculators who sacrifice
their stock at every new rumor.
This Transvaal affair is certainly influencing the whole of the markets,
and I for one would like to see it settled one way or the other. In the
British Railway market there has been
a considerable falling off in business,
taking.for instance, the Great Western
Railway stocks, which is considered
one of tho strongest points in the market, advanced a full point, which is
very exceptional in the present dull
state of the Stock Exchange,and iu the
majority of case.s there has beeu more
falling off iu the prices than rises,
and everyone has been looking forward
for huge holiday receipts, but these
bave not been up to expectations.
Thore is uo doubt Unit the uneasiness
already felt in Paris, and also to sumo
extent in Berlin and to tbo absence of
the Jewish elomout was noticeable by
its absence from business on Tuesday,
owing to its being tbe (irst day of their
New Year, and tbeu there is a holiday
today on tho Stock Exchange, and the
approaohiug uccnunt at the beginning
of next week takes away many rich
and important dealers in stocks and
shares in this time of the year. I
could find a fow moro reasons,but consider the forogoing quite enough piling
up tlie agony. There wero two more
failures at last account, making four
in all, and in the case of ono member
ho was only readmitted as a member
iu the middle of June. So I hope his
ten weeks were bb merry as they were
short.
Consols are lower in consequence of
the strained Transvaal position, as it
is stated that should we bo compelled
to force the position, it would cost the
British Government at least 16,000,000,
consequently this yilt-edged security is
lowered by :!j.
In the American and Canadian iail-
way market again the foregoing
trouble shows lb elf here. Milwaukees
have kept well to the front on the official statement on the earnings of the
company   are   sufficient to   pay 10 per
oent instead of 8 per cent for the previous year, and that a bonus is looked
for. This is certainly fairly satisfae
tory. I.ouisvilles are still a favorite,
nnd ino lookod upon ns likely to go
higher.
Vauderbilt's stocks are boiler. Pana-
dian Pacifies, in spite of the Increased
receipts, look weak. Grand Trunks
Jrafflo return for tbo last few days of
August shows an incrosae, and these
various issues have improved,
In tbo various Industrial securities
movements have been slight during
the past week, and not many transactions have been done.
Salmon & Glucksteins (the largest
tobacconists in tbo world) have shown
special weaknesses. This also applies
to Liptons.
Petroleum shares show but little
alteration, American Anglo Telegraph
stocks have been neglected and lower,
and Hudson's Bay havo reacted,
Aerated Breads, which stand at the absurd price of ��15 for the ��1 shares,
have been fairly firm. This applies
also the Gordon Hotels, Bovrils nnd
S^hwepps. Barnum & Baileys have
also declined, notwithstanding the dividend announcement of 2 per cent per
sburo. In tbe Brewery line Allsopps
and Guiuess have attracted very little
attention. Tbe latter stands at ��140
and the forme, ut ��560, ex-dividend.
The theatre ��� and music hull sburos
have been fairly active, and stand at
about the same prices,
In the foreign bond these have been
fairly quiet.
In tbo Mining market West Australians still continue to be the only act
ivo market although there has been
another big shake-up in this market
owing in part, of course, to tbo grave
outlook as regards the Transvaal, but
chiefly owing to tbe large number of
weak holders being scared. Luko View
Consols havo beeu banged and in
cousequeiici are lower. In tbo ense of
the other high class shares, such as
Ivauhoe, Hannans, Boulder, Persover-
auce. Golden Horse Shoe and Peak
Hills are all lower, but should rally
again. Loudon and Globes are lower,
and Btand at 28s. lid. to 29s. lid. In the
other mining miwlrot littlo or uo chnf-cjos
have been made. It is not expected
that the market for British Columbian
mines wonld show any better tendency than thnt foi other mines. Le
Roi have been especially knocked
down, notwithstanding a satisfactory
output for the second half of August,
and are quoted at 5'\ to fibj. British
American Corporation have also relapsed in sympathy with the rest of London and Globe group.
Ymir Gold Minos have declined,
nnd sharehjldors have been somewhat
alarmed, notwithstanding the favorable report of Mr. Popkiss, who recently
visited the company's property in B.C.
Possibly some improvement may be
looked for iu the price of shares which
a short time ago were quoted at 80s
and are now just over ��1. There is no
doubt that the property is a first class
concern, but nt tbe intrinsic value is
far above their par value, but tbo political outlook prevents the forward
movement, which is lookod upon as
very favorable on tbe London market.
In the Transvaal market, although
the big financial houses arc supporting
some of the specialties, which iu a certain measure prevents any serious
falls, although it is quite a common
occurrence in the course of a day to
vary in prices to the extent of several
pounds.
In conclusion, I can only add that as
soon as this war cloud is over tbo market ought to boom.
Steamship Scotsman  From
Liverpool to Montreal
WAS DUE SEPTEMBER 25
Grave Fears Expressed for the Safety of
the Vessel���A  Very  Heavy
Fasseugi r List.
Montreal, Que., Sept. 27. ���Grave
I ieara aie expressed for the safety of
the Dominion lino steamship Sonts-
niiiii, dipt Skrin shire, which sailed
froni Liverpool for this port on Sopt,
1 llib. The Scotsn un nii,i due here on
Sunday attorn,,on but the only word
so fur is a cable from Liverpool received by the agents this morning, saying
that tie Domiuion of Hie same line,
which arrived at Liverpool, had passed
ti:e Scotsman 800 miles east nf Belle
lulu, ami that the lntter had signalled
"all well." 'J his was on Thursday
last The Scotsman should have passed
through tlie Btraits on Friday and reported at Father Point on Saturday
evening. The fears entertained for
the Scotsiiian aro enhanced by the
known presence of ice in unusual
quantities, both outside and inside the
straits,and by the great storms reported on the Newfoundland coast. Tho
only fallible feature is the fact that
the Scotsman had, in consequence of
tho strike, a green crew in tho fire
room, but this is hardly sufficient to
account for tbo delay, as the Soot��j������,
While i.. , p to nor schedule time
when pas* . by tl.,- Dominion on the
21st, was not so far behind but that
she could bave reported at one of the
gulf ports long ago. There are but a
few steamers reported inward bound.
The Melrose passed Quobeo tonight
.aid tho Cervona passed Father Point
this evening, but neither reported the
missing boat The Scotsman had
a heavy passenger list.

30MB POLITICAL SKETCHING
The editor of The Atlin Globe knows
the men who masquerade ol Victoria
as statesmen. When they began to
stake claims in Atlin there was an impression thai the country was a poi
Hon of the Northwest Torritories.
They disoovered later on that thoy lie -
longed to British Columbia, and in the
discussion and management of our political affairs we too must tako cognisance of tho fact that they are a pui t
of us. We need not wonder, therefore,
that tho newspapers up there keep an
eve mi what is goiiif: on, and desire in
time of action to lake a hand in. The
tottering condition of the Government
has excited the interest of Tbe (Jlnbe.
Which appears to know its men more
intimately than some of us nearer
liotne. In the issue just received the
olitor pays his respects to tho two or
three gentlemen whose names have
been much discussed of Into, and the
little pen sketches are racy enough to
be interesting. For example, of Mr.
Maopberson the writer says: "Ho is a
Scotchman, a carpenter, who puts in
nine hours a day at the bench, canny,a
fairly good mechanic sincere, a disciple of Henry George, narrow-minded,
and a faithful satellite of Joe Martin.
He has some admirable traits of personal character. He is honest in his
dealings with peoolo, 'bancs' his
'banbeea,' has the sensitiveness of a
man of little broadness iu his education and little kuowledgoof the world,
thinks littlo for himself, but follows
blindly in n narrow groove the load of
a superior intellect, has a high-pitohed
squeaky voice, and is altogether du.
cent. Joseph Martin Ins caught him."
Another of tho men who are expect-
ed to decide the fate ol tbe Government is Mr. Higgins, of whom there is
the following: "He deserted the late
Turner Government on the eve of its
overthrow cm purely acadeinie.il
grounds, and he now deserts the sue
cossors of the Turner GoVeriiinein on
tho samp score. Ho thinks that before
Semlin called on Harry Belmoken 10
accept the office of Attorney-General,
mane vacant by the dismissal of Joseph
Martin, the party should have been
consulted, Higgins is a m.'n of
weight, his avoirdupois must be 11"
stone, pompons to a degree, one of tbe
old regime lint no mossback, plenty of
brain power, indolent, some decided
ideas of statesmanship, no powers of
political organisation,no political principles, a superHiious character in the
affairs of the Province, vain, and good
looking." This is so cleverly drawn
that it ought to bo a good likeness if it
is not. Another of tho men who hold
ns in tho hollow of their hands is Mr.
Helgeson, whom The Globe savs it
knows well. He would seem to be a
person of mixed or uncertain character:
"Last session he supported the Gov-
ernmnnt with a Swedish determination
that was admirable and stupid, lie
voted for tho Anti-Alien Hill,and then
spent four months in the   District tnis
Bummer   exeoratmg   that   Bill  in the
most awful  ma r.    lb' voted for tbe
Eight-Houi law and has continued
ever sinco to denounce it. He introduced an Anti-Chinese resolution
which the Opposition assisted him in
carrying through the House,but which
Joseph Martin   treated   with ridicule,
***Hans Helgeson u a Scandinavian, a
man of no eduoation, kind of heart to
a fault, industrious, keen in his cm-
TJloyniouts. fair-minded, not intellectual, one who should never have been in
politics. Thus it it, that wo find him
voting for measures one day out of
generous symuathy with his party,and
the next day denouncing both party
and measures when people tell him
they are wrong���a thing which he has
always believed.''
There are littlo sketches also of Mr.
Martin, Mr. Cotton, anil Mr. Henderson, but they uro trifles in comparison
and need not ho reproduced. As depicted here, Mr. Maopberson, Mr. Higgins and Mr. Helgeson would be desirable acquaintances and would make
excellent neighbors; but really one does
not feel entirely at ease   when   relic t-
iug that   the fate of Governments nnd
the future of a great Provinoe like
British Columbia are depending on the
judgment   and   resolution   of   men   of
whom these arc samples, buttle wonder The Globe cries for a redistribution
and a dissolution, and after these n
says: "Let there bo a campaign of Lib
erals against Conservatives, ami lot ns
huve a stable Government." That-Is
the great iced in Provincial politics-"
stability; hut wiib patties formed
around men, and not on principles, it
will bo b ng in coming.
Lord Loch, a former Governor of
Jape Colony, in a recent speech on the
Transvaal situation, said : "War would
be terrible, indeed; its effeots could
scarcely be realised except, by those
who kiiBW South Al'rlci, and the ijuos-
Lions of complex interest which wetc
involved. Il may be settled at the
very final moment���I fervently hope
that it may; bal if the question of
control is raised wo can never relax.
Wn must never forego. Some question
has hi in raised as to iho feeling of the
Dutch in Hie event of war. The raid,
I admit, tended to unhinge the Hutch
men's minds,but that the great major-
Itj of tin in can lie relied npou I am
sure. If war should break mil, and if
our colonics should send their men to
^lanil by us, many a household in Australia and many a household in the
Dominion of Canada will bo watching
with deep anxiety for the issue of a
movement tic main and iplendtd
principle of which would bo unity ���
unity of feeling and unity of purpose, "
The question of oontrol would bo raised, and that would mean war to a
finish, Cn tho other point, the feeling
of the Dutch, the latest dispatches give
rise to the fear that his Lordship's expectation would not bo realised. It
hinks today as if, in tbo event of war,
Great Britain would have to tight the
entire Dutch population of South
Africa.     	
A sad moss was made of a paragraph
in yesterday's issuo on tho Manitoba
elections, \S'e were made to speak of
Mr. Moikle, the Provincial Secretary,
as Mr. Mickle, and as belonging to
British Columbia instead of his own
constituency of Birtle. Mr. Green-
way's "anxieties" wero converted into
"convictions." If these corrections
are understood the paragraph will not
be without sense.

CITY'S ROAD TAX
IT   IS   DECIDED   TO  COLLECT  IT
WITHOUT FURTHER DELAY.
Tho By-Law Providing for it is Finilly
Passed at a Speoi 1 Council Meeting Yester 'ay Afternoon.
H look the  Oity Oounotl some time
yesterday to secure a quorum. A special meeting had been culled  to finally
IH1B8 the by-law autborising'the collection of tbe road tax,but until telephoue
messages hiul neon despatched t.i vuri-
ons places in the City enough aldermen
could not be Stirred up to mnko a quo-
ruin But finally things took a belter
turn.and when the meeting was called
to order t;li ire wero present the Mayor,
Aldermen MoKillop, Kirkpatriok,
Fletcher and Hillyer.
The by-law was the first matter of
business to onme up, and without any
(liscnssion it was finnlly passed, This
makes it obligatory on all male citizens between the ages of 21 and fiC to
pay to the City two dollars. This
should net the Oity about two thousand
dollars, and the way the revenue bus
liecii expended lately makes it necessary for th i Cit'. to realise on all its
collaterals. K. J. Steele bus been appointed collector. The by-law makes
tbe tax collectable on tho 80th nist.,.
nnd Mr. Steele will start on bis pil-
grlmage on that day.
An invitation from the management
of the Spokane Exposition to tho City
Council to attend in a body as guests
ot the Oity of Spokane was read, and
the (Jity Clerk was instructed to ascertain bow many aldermen would attend
and to answer tho invitation accordingly.
Another invitation was read. It
was fruin tho New Westminster Provincial Fair, and it had Ihe advantage
of the other, for acoompnnying it were
some beautifol yellow badges that
would entitle the recipients to the
freedom of the Royal City. However,
it was decided to regretfully decline
the invitation and to thank the Mayor
and Couuoil of New Westminster for
the invitation, at the same time expressing the wish that Ihe fair would
he very successful.
As tho case of iho Oity against K. 0.
Tiavcs for infracting tho fire limits
by-law will come up at, Victoria next
month,it was decided to havo Ihe Oity
Siilh'itor prepare a brief in the matter
and to forward it to Messrs. Topper,
Peters and Potts, who will look after
the interests of the City when the
case comes up.
The question of the City scales came
up mid Ihe matter of attending to
them was discussed, Tlie Mayor was
appointed a committee nf one to look
into the mutter and report at the next
meeting of the Council.
Dr. Tlall wrote asking that, something be done towards relieving the
fined into bis lot where lie is excavating on Eaker street The flood is
c:iiissil by the overflow of some private
sewers, and the sanitary inspector was
instructed to see that the nnisiineo was
abated.
The City Clerk reporlod that be had
received the deeds for ihe reservoir
lots, und they were ordered to be recorded,
Tne water pipi on Josephine street

The "Breezy Time" Company Pleases
n Largo Audience at Kossland.
The theater season opens tomorrow
night when the "Breezy Time" company will hold the boards at the Opera
Home. The sale of seats commences
this morning at the Thompson Stationery Company, Tim company played iu
Kossland on Tuesday night, and tbe
Miner of that town gave the following
report of tho entertainment;
"A Breezy Time" was given at the
opera bouse last evening before one of
the largest audiences that over assembled there. This production is a farce
comedy, and ns it was given by the
company at the opera house last night
it rovealed that it fully deserved the
name, for there was scarcely a moment
of tbe two hours and a half, during
which the performance lasted, that the
audience was not either in ii roar or a
titter of laughter. Tho fun was nuidn
principally by John McDowell, who
enacted the role of Reuben Merriflold,
a tamer, and Prett Reed, who was
cast in tho purl; of Hans BlotZ, a comic
Dutchman. Tho rest of the company
assisted in the fun making.
"The specialty people were especially good. J. W. and Walter Smith,
musical artists, gave seleotloni on various instruments, that wero most
pleasing nnd artistic. Mr. Smith is
also a clover urtist with chalk, and did
some very clever work. Mrs. Smith
is H comet BOloilt, and her selections
wero vociferously applauded.
"The band is particularly good, and
The regular monthly meeting of the
Ladies' Hospital   Aid will   be held in

dollars a day are offered as wages.
Workmen are engaged in building
hexes with which to enclose the water
pine under the bridge in front of the
j post office to prevent its freeing up
dining the winter. About 150 feet

W. W. Traves, of this Oity, has .inst
completed an invention of a new mowing machine, which by all appearances
will ho a denifled success. He is getting a model made at Elliott & Morrison's machine shop, and when completed he will get it patented.
H. F. Parker, under arrest for the
embezzlement of some money from the
Parsons Produce Company,came up for
his preliminary hearing yesterday, but
at his request an adjournment till
Monday was granted in order to allow
Fletcher 8. Andrews, Parker's lawyer,
to arrive from Winnipeg.
The City jail is having a thorough
renovation, and extra bars are being
put in the different windows. Ono of
the prisoners is a stone worker, and
Chief Jarvis is having him doing the
stone drilling in the walls for the insertion of the iron bars. This is a
saving to the (Jity of $8.50 per rir.y for
this drilling. The Chief certainly has
an eye to business and the interests of
tie City.
The Provincial Government has presented to the Nelson company. South
Kootenay Rifles, rwo lots on Victoria
street, between Stanley and Kootenay,
for a site for a drill hall. Tho Dominion Government has informed tbo company that no grant can he mado towards the erection of a drill hall this
year, but the company intends to en-
diavnr to go it alone, and a fund baa
a'ready been started.
Aid. G. Frank Beer returned last
evening from a trip to the coast.
While away he completed Oity Olerk
Strnohnn's negotiations by settling the
claim of the Nelson Oity Land and Improvement Company against the City
for lots appropriated for the building
of the reservoir. Ho says that things
ate booming at the coast, and that all
eyes are turned towards Nelson as the
center of the Eootenays,
Wm. Kelly, a boatman nf Robson,

Fenipleman, a hrakeman on the new
Robson and Penticton road. The evidence brought out that Kelly had
taken tho money from Teniplemnn's
pockets while tho latter wis in bed.

the ense of'Seattle Company vs Robert
Olnrko had been decided in favor nf the
defendant The action involved the
title to the Seattle claim, a valuable
property on the North Fork of the
Kettle River near Grand Forks. The
contention of the company was that

agreement given to the company. It
was shown by the ovidnnce givon before Mr. Justice Martin nt the spring
assizes here, that the company
brought with n knowledge of ii previous agreement having been g'von by

The Dominion Copper Com-;

Tlie Married Miner's of Pheouix to Have
Tree Homes aud free Schools.
A New Innovation.
APOSTOLIC DELEGATE.
Mi. Hngh Sutherland, managing director of the Dominion   Copper   Com
pany.   whose   property   is   located   nl
Phoenix, is in the Oity for a fow days,
In oonversation witb a Miner representative last night, Mr. Sutherland said:
"The  company's new compressor nt
the mines  is uow   running   smoothly.
We are running four drills    We do not
iuleud to put iu  any more machinery,
not i'or some time at lest.   We will not
put  np a   concentrator   or   mill.    We
have been developing the Brooklyn and
Stemwinder properties for  two years,
and  will  coulinue  development work
for at le;sl another year.    We could, if
necessary, mine 5(10 tons of ore per day
at this present time, but our intention
is to let the ore stairl and keep tunnelling away at development.    The policy
of our company  toward our employees
will always be based upon fairness and
equity    We have already given orders
for the erection of a number of cottages
for the married   men   in   our   employ
and will build forty more if needed, so
that any self-respecting man of a family, in   our   employ   can  have a  real
comfortable   home  and   a   permanent
cue. The cottages will have five rooms
and will bo finished jn a superior manner.    We   will   also take care of other
matters  beside homes.    We will   eroct
school buildings  and  opeu schools, so
that the children of our employees will
he enabled to   lay the   foundation   for
on education. "
In sneaking of the progress of the
Bonndary country, Mr. Sutherland said
it was remarkable. "Why, if I had mil
known where I was going when I arrived at Phoenix, 1 would bave bun
lost. It bore no resemblance lo the
place I left last January. It has built
np surprisingly. The townsite company have scld every lot they had,
Greenwood has improved wonderfully;
so, also, has Orand Forks. The Yale
Hotel at Grand Forks is the finest lintel in the Kootenay country. II is a
credit to British Columbia, "
When asked about the difficulties
arising from the Eight-Hour law, Mr.
Sutherland was reticent in n degree,
but said he did not think there would
bo nny considerable improvement
among the mines until a change in the
right direction bad beon effected. He
said l
"We are employing our miners at
Ihe rate of |?,50 per day of eight hours
for machine men, nud iJli.UO per day of
eight hours to hammersmen. This is
dry work. In wet work the wages are
oO cents extra. In shaft work our ham-
niersinen are getting $3.60 per day of
eight hours. This has been the prevailing wage in these mines for 18 months
before the present company was formed, and the same in the Kveniig .Star,
at Slocan Oity, I have always paid
$8.50 to machine men for H hours work
in wet ground. For instance, in the
Evening Star, at Slocan City, 1 have
paid lor the pusl, 18 months $8.60 to
hammersmen and i?-i to machine men
for sinking in eight hour shifts. Il)
dry work I have paid in proportion for
10 hour shifts."

"Let fancy moiiHiue an area of ten
