The opponents of the Honorable
J. Fred Hume, Minister of
Minos, and his supporters, his admirers and his detractors, will uliko he
���surprised at the information given lust
night to a Miner reporter hy Mr JJnmes
Wilks, tho prominent Rosslaud lahor
leader; information which vouchsafed
before Mr. Hume went to the poll",
would undoubtedly have deprived him
of tho toilsome honors of olliee. Mr.
Wiiks, as all know, appeared on the
platform in support of Mr. Hume,
whoso candidature lio advocated on the
general grounds that tho Semlin Government was the friend of labor. He
also mentioned several at tlio aims of
organized lahor, among them being
the shortening of the hours of work.
Neither tho public nor the press drew
any othor inference from his words at
the time, nor have they since, though
the events of the past few days huve
caussd some of the shrewder ones to
imagine that thoro wus something
behind.
Yostorday evening Mr. Wilks gave
the solution, incidentally Bayiug tint
If ho did not make himself more clear,
it wns because carried away in the
boat of speaking ho may huve indulged
too mnch in generalities This lets

that* befoie coniin**
on Mr. Humo   ou
Mr. Hume pledged himself and his
Government to the eight hour bill.
Mr. Wilkes accordingly came over,
hut before going down to the meeting
ho again spoke to Mr. Humo in the
rotunda of the Humo Hotel, whereupon
Mr Hume again pledged himself uud
his Government. Thou Mr. Wilkes went
down and spoke.
All who attended that meeting,   ami
they  were many, will remember that
Mr. Hume made no rrefereneo whatever to the promise he hud given hut u
moment before, a promise that wus
to vitally affect the prinoipal industry
of tho 'Kootenay-. Mr. Humo suid
notniug, his other supporters, it
they knew anything "limit it sun
nothing either. His manifesto Bald
nothing abont it, bis nnnvBBBers said
nothing about it, nor did his tume organ.
But this is not all. In oroer to ensure the passage of the bill, und fully
commit the Government, the lahor
eaders thought it advisable that the
Minister of Mines, and not Mr. James
Martin as arranged, should introduce
tho legislation. Accordingly Mr. .Tames
Martin was telegraphed to hold his
bund until Mr. Hume went, down to
Victoria. Directly Iho election wus
over Mr. Hume burned down (it wus
B Thursday),   and   shortly   afterwards
he himself handed in the amendment
which prevents miners from working
more than eight hours underground.
Mr. Wilkos is certain 5>f Ibis, ���r he
says he was himself in the gallery 01
Hie Houso at tho timo. Mr. Wilkes
has no object in telling an untruth
which could ousilv he disproved, so 1.
mav bo taken us [certain that it wus
Mr. Humo, and not Mr. .lames Martin as generally supposed, who introduced the amendment.
But this is not all. The Miner is
not in a position to quote the exact
words ho user to the delegates wbo
went, down to Victoria, but they cor
tainly returned witn tho impression
that, Mr. Humo wus opposed to the
legislation in question, and Mr. Hume
must be a cleverer man than he is generally oredited with being if he OKI
not sav so in bo mnny words. He oertainly never said the Government wus
pledged to the legislation the delegates
wore petitioning against. This desire
to dooeivo his constituents, or at any
rate not to correct a false impression
which he knew to be generally entertained will meet with general condemnation.
WILL DEMAND OLD WAGES.
Turning to the effects of tho recent
legislation, Mr. Wilks wns asked if
the labor union had come tn nny ne-
oisinn regarding tho wnges they won Irt
ask for tho eight hour day now it was
enforced. Ho replied that thoy had,
and tho old wage ot ��8.B0 would be
demanded for the eight hour day.
Thev intended to insist upolllit, nil
thought they wonld obtain thoir desires without much trouble, thnt ir
then* might be a little friction In the
Slocan for a week or two. Mr. W11M
was sure thut the mine

The passengers could givo no connected story. The number of dead
nud injured is not known but* it is
believed that six passengers woro
killed. Later advices sny tbat the
number of dead is i'ullv 2b and injured BO,
Heai ing, Ph.. May 18,���A collision
of passenger trains occurred on the
Philadelphia St Reading rond at Exe.
tor yosirlnv. about six miles south of
this oity, and a grout number of people were killed and wounded. There
is no telegraph olliee at Exeter and details me therefore diffloult to obtrin
nt ibis writing The number killed is
variously atatrd to be from IB to 25.
Numbers were injured.
The regular express train from Potls-
villo for Philadelphia oounected at the
station for Reading with a train for
Harrisburg which was crowded
with excursionists who had been lo
the state capitol to witness tho ceremonies in connection with the unveil
ill" of the llum-nnft inonnient. Many
of the Harrisburg passengers at Reading weut aboard the Philadelphia express but it being found lhat all could
not be accommodated, it wns decided
to send an extra (ruin to Philadelphia
lo mn ns a section of the express.
The extra I nun left Jill minutes later
than the express. At, Exeter tho express stopped for orders and while
standing still the extra train crashed
into it while moving at grent speed.
Thi'i'e of Hit* roar cars of the express
were telescoped and the first car of
(he extra was ulso wrecked. The passengers, in those * urs were terribly
mangled, many being killed outright,
while others had li'-.bs nnd bodies
maimed, Word wus at onoe sent to

The wioek was indescribable, human
arms and limbs slicking out of windows, With splinters of wood driven
through them, and dead bodies piled in

sickening sight.
"The worst feature was thnt tliero
wus only one doctor on lhe train, Dr.
.1. K. Weaver, nnd ho did hcioic service in relieving, temporarily at least,*
the sufferings of those who were injured. "
'Bonding, Pa., May 18.���Twenty
eight dead nnd 50 injured, some so
hadly that they mny not recover, is tho
awful result of tho accident. Tho oause
ol tbe disaster is still involved in mystery and offloials of the mud mo investigating in order to plaoe the blame
properly.
The mnn in the signal tower at
Exeter station claims to have hud
the signals properly  displayed.   In  a
statement toduy General Superintendent Bewigard (if the Bending Railway,
said the prime cause of the accident
was a block of freight ears ou the
truck, which were taking a siding at
Birdshoro, und which compelled llio
express lo stop nt Exeter. It is not
known ns yet whether the signal mnn
wns sent buck to notify thu special or
second section of the train.
A strange feature of the disaster wus

London, Mny 18.���Lord Rosebery's
speech before the London Liberal
Club ou May 6, in the course of
whioh bo expressed a wish for a revival of lhe old Liberal spirit bus proved
un oratorical npplo of discord of the
first order.
It elicited a virulent reply from Sir
William Vernon Harcourt in a speech
before the Devonshire Club which
hns been tho political sensation of the
week.
Sir William's speech bore witness to
tho bitterness.-* of the duel for leadership of tho Libera] party between
himself nnd Lord Rosebery, and to Ihe
pout np personal feelings of rho
speaker against Lord Rosebery, who
was responsible for his temporary
effaoement.
In lhe course of Sir William Vernon
Haroourt's speech, bn declared thut
Lord Rosobery's words were tantamount lo advise them to "taken
Bpcinge and wipe out the glorious inheritance which Mr. Gladstone left
the pnrty, before his ashes are cold"
The Liberal organs huve tuken up
the cudgi Is i.i behalf of Lord Rosebery
and talk lo Hnroourt very straight.
The Speaker culls his interpretations
of Lord F.osobery's words: "A most
absurd and malicious falsification ni
his meaning, and the fira*; example i'<J
reoeut years of downright roisrepre-
lentation." The British Weekly snys:
' Herojurt's words are giossly unjust
and slanderous,and only to he aocount-
ed for by a rancor of hatred amounting
to almost madness, "
Other mouthpieces of the Liberal
pnrty insist that Lord Rosebery in urging a return to the Liberalism of 1886
did not mean a ohange of programme
but a return to party discipline ns, in
the halcyon days of Liberalism.
Sir William Hnroourt todny announces tbat ho will Bpeuk lo his constituents on May 24. His utterances
nre awaited with tho keenest interest,
und another speech in his best lighting
stylo is oxpectod.
Meanwhile tho Conservative press
interprets Rosebory as Haroour1 does,
and in some quarters llio opinion is
expressed that Rosebory's utteranoes
nre nothing hss than n direct bid for
Mr. .lnsepii Chamberlain nnd a prelude to Rosobery identifying himself
with the Liberal Unionists.
The Sun snys tbat Lord Rosebery's
nbnndonment of the Liberals nud bis
explicit acceptance of Liberal unionist
programme might in tho event of a
Conservative victory next election pos
sibly be marked by the offer nnd his
acceptance of a Cabinet rank.

where the amenities of tho profession
are understood and practised, it is usual on such occasions to hail them
with words of compliment; Kootenay
journalism appears to bo a plant of a
quite different variety.
PERSONAL AND SHOP.
The present managers of The Miner
came   to   Nelson   as strangers, to tnke
charge of an established business  nnd
hoping in tho continued conduct cf it to
earn by deserving them the respect and
oonfldenoe of its citizens. The busiuess
was obtained in a  legitimate wny, tho;
management was assumed in a legitimate manner, and to the  best  of  our |
knowledge   und    judgment   has   been i
exercised   with   legitimate   regard   to j
evory consideration due to the   public.
We   did   not   come   as a   thief in the
night, uor havo we consciously   trans- j
grossed  uny of tho laws   or   rules  of I
respectable journalism in the presentn-:
tion cf such news as we have been able j
to   gather or in tbo discussion of such j
public uuestious  ns .seemed to demand
notice. Wo bave endeavored by a courtesy due to the reading   publio of a re-
Bpectable and intelligent city to deserve
courtesy iu return.
We have received it from all classes
and interests excepting the Press of
the City. From the beginning, Tho
Tribune newspaper particularly has
been characterised by a disposition
that has boon singularly envious nud
malicious. It bas seemed to resent tbe
existence of the new Miner us an in
fringement ou rights nnd nn encroachment on preserves thnt nre exclusively
its own. H has constnutly busied itself with The Miner's affairs, with deliberate purpose to injure. To pre
judioe one class, it assured its readers
tbat The Minsr was to be a Liberal
organ ; next it was to be an organ of
the Conservatives. To meet tbe case
of tho largo number who might not he
affected by these piaces of conflicting
intelligence, it declared that The Miner
was   owned   nnd     supported   by    tbe
'���Thnt    this   country exists  uuder a
very   free    Government,"    says  The
Seattle Post-Intelligenoer,   "is proved
by tho absence of  uny excitement 0"*er
the publication  by  Edward  Atkinson
of^iis  seditious   literature.    Were  he
in nny other country than tbe   United
States he would Im iu   jail, nud public
sentiment   would   be  furious   against
him. "    This is a mistaken view quite
nntuiul  among a people whoso education bus not enabled   them, much   less
encouraged   them, to  see   beyond   tho
boundaries of their own country.    Tho
seditious literature referred to consisted of very free criticism of the   Washington Government's Philippine policy
The American  conception   of freedom
is gauged   by the fact thnt Mr. Atkin
sou's writings wero officially proscribed, nnd denied tho  privileges   of    the
mail serivce.   In Great Britaiu, where
freedom   exists   in   its full purity and
giory, the   Government   would   never
think  of   interfering with the   circu-
lutiou of such matter.    In   nuother de-
cude or two, judging from tho progress
of tho last the   American  people  may
begin to realise what   true freedom is.
At present their idea of it   is:   Uo  us
we say, or wo,'11 shoot.

Rochester, N. Y., Mny 13.���The
Federal grand jury has been in session
here during the post week before .Tudge
Conxe. Amongst tbo most important
ensos was a bearing of Johnson, Mrs.
Mnry Oliver nnd the latter's dnughter
Quoeuie, charged with smuggling loaf
tohaccoover the suspension bridgo from
Oanada' Mrs. Oliver pleaded guilty
nnd escaped witn a line of $50. Johnson stood trinl.
Ou beirg brought up for sentence,
after the jury returned a verdict of
guilty as charged, Johnson made a
statement admitting that it was tbe
Becond time thut he hnd boeu convicted
of smuggling und endeavored to exculpate tho women, but it wns too late
for she had nlrendy pleaded guilty and
had been sentenced.
Ho   wus   sentenced to two years   in
Auburn   prison   and   lined   $60,    The
I court deult leniently with QueenieOli-
j ver on account of her youth   and   dis-
I mills d the indictment ngninst her. All
I the parties were residents of Hamilton,
Cauadiau   Pacific   Company.    At   nuother time it   presumed   to inform the i Out
publio who were   aud   were not share- 	
holders, aud   what   interested   parties |    As it will havo the
outside contributed its leading editorials. From matters of tbis kind it advanced so far us to discuss The Miner's
bank account, aud to declare with nil
coufiduuee of positive knowledge that
it was overdrawn to the nmount of
several thousands of dollars. As if
this display of kitchen journalism
were not enough, it proceeded to enlighten the people as to tbe scale of
���wages paid in The Miner office. Its
latest effort is to prejudice public
opinion against The Miner .. special
number.
This is ruffianly journalism, such
journalism as no one not consumed
with envy aud malice could indulge
in. But littlo olso could be expected
from the management of a newspaper
that could descend to the the petty
meanness of ondoavoriug to stir np
strife and provoke discord between The
Miner and its employees. Such a
management would naturally feel
envious of an enterprise thut proposed
tho issue of a largo special edition, intending to advertise the City nud district, nnd to afford thoir leading men
and leading industries an exceptionally favorable means of advertising
themselves. At liist tho impression
was sought to he created that The
Miner wus en-jugod in some illegiti-
inttto, immoral enterprise, intended to
cheat its patrons. The Tribune did
not seem to have hoard that speoial
editions are a recoguised and highly
valued feature of enterprising journalism, muoh uffected in tho lnrgor
citios and encouraged by the most
generous patronage. Having at length
reulised this, however, it pursues its
effort at prejudice by procluiming thut
the edition is to be printed in Toronto.
It is the concern of no man on eurth
but The Miner's own whoro tho mere
mechanical work of the enterprise is
oxecuted. It will not be in Toronto,
however, nor will it be outside the
Piovince. It would not be outsido the
Oity or our own office, if the facilities
here were nclequnto; but thoy ure uot,
nor would they be if the resources of
all the printing offices in Nelson were
combined for the occasion. It is tho
purpose of Tbe Miuer to publish a
special number that will do more to
advertise Nelson than The Tribune hns
done in all tho years of its existence.
We bog to assure our renders that
there is no intention to lap-it- into gut-
tor journalism. Wo leavo that to those
of the gutter, to whom it is congeninl.
But there hns been such malicious pursuit of The Miner under its now management, suoh indecent and unprofessional intorerence with its private
affairs, that we have thought it best
thus to refer to the circunista ces. It
is something now in a rather long nnd
vnried experience to see professional
jealousy enrried so far as this attempt
to injure a rival  in a  legitimate  and
largest circulation in the Kootenays of any issue

I   ANGLING NOTES-    X
After tlm fierce anil untimely rtjup-
psarnnre of winter in Urn early part nf
tlie week, wo poor benumbed individuals wire at tlm end of tlm sm.m wonk
elioered with tlm glow of a summer
suu. Tlm iint had gone forth Unit lish
woro needed for tho household, sr,
nothing loth, wo abandoned our respective daily tasks ou Saturday, and prepared for a murderous assault 011 tho
trout at Wards Grossing, Thoro wns
a divided opinion as lo tlm time of
departure of tho train. Out of a household of six souls there were six different versions of, tho time varying from
ll to 9.80. Tho conversation began
to be a hoatod ono, whon suddenly a
friend, armed with a fishing rod,
passed the window and informed us
tbat bo hoped to be in time for tbe
train wbioh started at 9, It was thou
a quarter to nine so we flung odds and
ends of bread, aggs (which of course
broke) "qnelque obose a'botre," nnd
(a happy thought) a oox of feathers,
poll mell into a oreel, snatched up a
rod or two and managed to soramble
into the departing train, suns breakfast, suns flies, suns breath. We ilo-
visi.'d ono or two cunning looking insects
in tho Irnin, not us largo as usual,
representing us nearly as wo oould tbe
larvae of the Btone liy wilh a freakish
rod (ail by wny of an artistic effect.
Blessed ho tho man who remembered
the box of feathers. "Kes augustao
���Ionium" had induced us to purt with
our complete stock of flies, tho work of
li st winter. May our handiwork prosper in tbo bands of the enterprising
Nelson anglers who havo beon rash
enough   to purchase them.
The morning's angling was uneventful anil by lunch wo bail barely a ileven
of inconsiderable size. Wc then decided tn try another purl of the river
which oould best be fished from a boat.
Charon was mnch occupied in planting
au orchard so was unable to ferry us
o'er the Stygian stream, therefore,
one of us had to row and fish at the
same time. This was tlm happy lot of
your humble scribe, as being the larger
in bulk of (ho twain and more in need
of the double exertion for hygienic
reasons.
As soon ns wo readied our selected
point the fish began to rise merrily
and continued lo do so,with occasional
sileut intervals, until 5:80 wben we
were compelled to stop as wo had to
get to Robson that evening. Not
counting small lish returned, we had
73 weighing over (10 pounds, not a
bad bnsKel   considering   the day.    Wo
wero pestered by a bearded Frankenstein iu a boat who bore down on us
whenever  we  got a  fish.    However
be didn't got auything until tlio evening, when ho employed a man tc row
hnu about whilst be trailed enormous
Parmaoine Belles and other kindred
atrocities from two rods. By (his skilful method we were informed that lit
got nine fish. Two good fellows fished
patiently all day with the "beei" flv
and got two fish only. Another boat
of anglers did not once draw blood.
Tho son was overpoweriiiRly hot during the middle of the day so much so
that it was surprising to see Ihe fish
rise then. Tho large fish were all in
first-rate condition, an auspicious sign-
There weie tar ton many small fish
about; we hope tbat the tish municipal council will pass a bylaw prohibiting their children from loitering in the
feeding pools whenever wo have tho
priivlego of angling for tlioir parents.
*   *   *
Sunday was a live-day and tbo fish
were for the nonce allowed to enjoy a
"Sawbath" rest. Tho reunrt of a
large basket of trout in this paper
caused an exodus among tlm unemployed of Nelson to Slocan Junction during the week, but nf yet no authentic
records of miraculous draughts are to
hand. Thero were a number of flying
auls reposing on tbo waters of tbe Ial
Tho fish did not appear to pay them
any attention nor wero there any to
be found inside the fish taken on Sat
urday. Their meals consisted principally of larvae and water shrimp with
a few largo beetles. Tbo larvae of fbe
stoue-fly aro plentiful here. If a sione
by tbe water's crl��e be overturned
you will see them hurrying away to
hide under another stone. They are
uot unlike flattened earwigs only thoir
heads are more distinctly formed
and (he coloring is mile yellowish
brown marked with brown patches of
a darker color. They measure in
lengglh from a half lo three quarters
of an inch. In England they are called
"Creepers" and whenever they are
plentiful tho trout feed on thoni freely.
Imitations aro not usually successful
hence the "creeper" in the natural
stale is more generally fished.
Tho eggs of tho stone Hv are hatched
in the Into summer and the larvae seek
deep wnter as tho weather grows
coldor- In spring they work towards
tho bank, grow more rapidly until the
timo tor tho metamorphosis into the
fly has arrived. They then make
their way out of the water to a favor
nblo spot selecting as such a larire
stone or branch of a trfo. They require
a somewhat rough surface on which lo
fix their claws solidly during the
change of skin. Air passes into tho
space between tho old and the new
skin and the sholl-liko envelope splits
along the back. Tho head, throat and
feelers now appear and next the
wings aro drawn out of tl.eir sheath
and unfolded, then tlie legs nro withdrawn and finally the insect flies
awnv leaving the empty case adhering
to the resting place.
*   *   *
I havo been subjected to several personal attacks this week anent lasi Sunday's article. What is an "nlntel"
and a "ouxmnor?"
The answer is that my disgraceful
penmanship caused the Miner's loader
to mistake (the words "clutch" and
"aeiiemono" for those mysterious
words. Then I have been taxed for
my reticence in not giving the receipo
for mnyon.iiso sauce, ono fnir lady
going so far as to inggesl that I did

eggs, J<eep the whites carefully for
somo dessert dish ; heat up tho yokes in
a soup plate adding a large teaspoonful
of mixed mustard, a tesspoonfnl of
salt and a pinch of cayonno pepper.
Now take in your little   left   hand   a

ihe plate,stirring violently all the lime,
so lhat tbe cl'j-s ami oil mix properly.
Whe'l the sonp-plate is almost lull

1 wish to make a disclaimer.   I have
heard several comments, complimentary aud tho reverse, on (bo closing
lines in last weeks article. A friend
advised me to stick to fishing and givo
up trying to wiile impossible

his advice tor this is a most prosaic article. (I must plead stress of work
and the loactiou arising from suuiby
dissipations, amongst otlicrs a fancy
dress dance where the geutlomen
"wore only masks," ( ') at least so Ihe
���Miner said.) No sir ! Hie magnificent

City Council nnd   Tramway Company
Have Oonie   to Terms.
When the Council meeting broke up
on Friday evening it looked almost
like un even chalice whether (be street
railway would get n charier that they
would accept or not. Both parlies
scorned in a mood not to compromise
much, ami (hero were still one or two
minor stumbling blocks in the wny.
Things, however, will essnmo n different aspect tomorrow when the representatives of the street railway again
meet the Council.
There was an unofficial meeting yesterday between tho representatives of
the company and most, if not all, of
Ibe Council when the situation wns
thoroughly discussed. It soon became
"videnl that wilh a spirit of give-and-
t ike the difficulties could be smoothed
away, autl that it would bo possible
to safeguard (ho interests of Nelson
nml al tho same time grant tbe coin-
puny a charier that, wonld bo acceptable to the billion directors. What
the exacr terms of the compromise on
tlm points at issue were, is not known,
hut will of course he mr.de evident at*
tomorrow's meeting, In the meantime th�� citizens may look upon Nelson's street railway as an assured faot.

The Ymir Miner complains tbat
tbe annual reports of tbe Minister of
Mines entirely ignores tbe Ymir camp,
Whioh "is most pointedly left out;
and under tlio beading, "Nelson Milling Division, in which Ymir is included, there appears only a graphic
description of the Hall Mines Smelter and the West Kootenay Power and
Light Company.' All of which induces our contemporary to pronounce
the report to be a "most, unsatisfactory aud meagre pamphlet for such tin
important Province as British Columbia.'' Yet* Ymir voted confidence
in the Minister's fituoss by a large
majority.
A well, authenticated rumor comes
fiom Toronto to the ollect that Mackenzie, Mann St Co., are prefeotmg arrangements for tbe flotation of a big
company to operate tbo Greenwood
camp properties held by tbem. The
capitalization will he several million
dollars. The flotation is suro to lie
successful. The easterners urn so anxious to secure mining investments that
the names of those associated with the
ownership of tbe Brooklyn, Stem
winder aud the other properties in
the group would bring success to a
flotation such as suggestod oven if tbe
mines were veritable "wildcats"
but with tho properties like the
Brooklyn aud Bteinwinder behind some
of the strongest^ business and financial
men of the east, it is safe to say that
the stock will be over subscribed several times. The firm of Mackenzie,
Mann & Co., wbo are developing
the properties, comprises some of the
strongest eastern financial men. Wm.
Mackenlzie and Dan Mann require no
introduction. They bave figured so
prominently in the Canadian history
of the last few years that tbey are generally known. Tbe "Co." include Hon.
Senator Cox, the president of the Canadian Bunk of Commerce, Byron B.
Walker, the general manager of the
saute institution, and several other
prominent oastern capitalists. ���Boundary Creek Times.
The Mining Brokers' Association of
Vancouver, B. C., bas opened a daily
call board. Mining stocks in some of
Iho better known lines aro said to he

Development work on tbo Union
Jack, located four miles west of Cran
brook near the railroad, is making a
magnificant showing. A shaft 10 feet
deep shows a conjunction of three

Hog-*arth, Usher and Kyan, are feeling
jubilant over tbe prospect. Assays at
a depth of a few feet show %2b in gold.
58 ounces silver, and values in cop
per ranging from 17 to 77 per cent.
Mr. Love says be thinks they have a
bonanza, if the ore body proves as

to believe it is.

Fort Steele, B. C, May 18.���It is
now definitely known that another
strike of phenomenal richness was
mado in tbe North Star mino on Tuesday last. The ore was encountered
in the drift on the 200-foot level. Tho
oro is better and richer than any yet
found iu tbe mine.
* *   *
Cascade, B. C, May 1.1.���An effort
is being made to have a recording
oflice located hero so that tbe numerous mining men and prospectors having claims in this vicinity and in the
Christina lake district will bave better
accommodations. Grand Forks is the
nearest oflice where papers of this
character can be filed and to many this
means traveling a distance of from 40
to 75 miles. By establishing a sub-
recording office at Cascade a 25-mile
trip���the round��trip distance between
Cascade and Grand Forks���would be
saved.
