Ninth Year
IS STILL
The Strikers Refuse a Compromise.
CONNORS STILL THERE
The Men Want the Contractors and Middlemen Done Away With and
Nothing Less.
Buffalo, May 1).���The strike situation along tho docks remains practically
unchanged. Contractor Oonners stated today that be was working 1*1 elo-
vators with a full force of men, and
was elevating 1,000,000 bushels oil
grain a day. Notwithstanding this
statement tbo fact remains that there
are 50 large steamers in the harbor
waiting to be unloaded and 85 more
all due within the next 48 hours.
Conferences bave been held at the
residence of Bishop Quigley yesterday
and today but without result. That
the Gamers' Association views the
matter in a most serious light is evident from the concessions they are
making to the strikers. Today a presentation was made by them in which
they agreed tu practically shelve Contractor Connors, appointing another
man to superintend the work and allowing Mr. Connors practically nothing to say ns regards the workingmen,
his only coniiccrion with tlie unloading of grain bein-< the payment to him
of the commission guaranteed under
bis oon tract with the Lake Carriers'
Association.
To this proposal the strikers refused
to listen, nothing but the doing away
entirely with the contractors will satisfy tbem. The .offloers of the Carriers' Association say that it is impossible for tbem to (leal directly with
the grain shovellers owing to the enormous interests at state in the unloading of boats and handling of two hundred million bushels oach season.
The freight hniidlers along the docks
are quitting work in small bunches
and the work of unloading tlie purely
freight, boats is greatly retarded.

Judge Clark,   solicitor for the   C.   P.

bring the cost  dowu   to $87,000.    The

of the Committee would dare to impugn the evidence. He had submitted
an affidavit that if untrue would land

objected to the Company being allowed to build branch lines and bond
them for $85,000 a mile. Mr. Blair
said that the estimates of tho cost of
the line made hy the engineers of the
Columbia & Western Company, confirmed hy the engineers of his Department, showed that the line would cost
about $40,000, so he did net see that
Judge Clark's figures were excessive.

Buffalo, May il. ��� The strike is now
practically unchanged. All efforts
made to bring about a settlement have
beeu balked by tbe absolute refusal
of the strikers to consider any proposition that did not include the abrogation of Contractor Oonners' contract
and the refusal of the Lako Carriers'
Association to consider the contract.
Attorney Gonlder, on behalf of the
Lake Carriers' Association, declared
that Oonners could not be deprived of
his contract, and that it would bo unwise to attempt to do business directly
with the 3000 grain shovellers composing tbe union.
Late this afternoon the grain shovel-
ers and tho striking freight handlers
held a parade. About 2,500 of them
were iu line. The superintendent of
police had refused to grant a permit
for the parade, fearing some demonstration that might l(!ad to trouble,
but the mon paraded, nevertheless.
There was no trouble.

He says that 25 miles of steel have

At present the force of tracklayers is

which there are six on each side of
the mountain that is thus crossed,

During the winter some nf the deep

tiou to adopt a Bill respecting tho Columbia &   Western, to give   it  power
to issue bonds to the amount of 185,000
a mile  on   thu  portions  of   tho   road
from Trail to Rosslaud,and from Rossland   to   Midwav.     Tbo   following is
from   The    Toronto  Globe's    report:
"Mr. Bostock pointed   out. the manner
in whioh   the   O. P. B. bad neglected
the claims of  Grand  Forks to have   a
station, stating   that the railway   had
sido-tracked Grand Forks and proposod
to place a station   at   a  small  village
called Columbia.    Ho   called   on   Mr.
Armstrong, of Grand Forks to address
tho Committee. Mr. Armstrong stated
that the  original   survey   of the   lmo
went   through   Graud   Forks, a  town
of   1,200   inhabitants.    Tho  Company
demanded one-third   of  tho  towusite,
and when this was refused they adopted n much iuforior   route   from an engineering standpoint, going by a small
village   called   Upper   Grand   l'orks,
where thev had secured a   third in crest in a   i!20-acres   farm.    Later   they
secured   a   half   interest   in   a  small
townsito, which they got from a couple
of   Americans   und   proposed   to leave
Upper Grand Forks   on one side   also.

Canadian   laborers   derived   from   it.
Mr.    Armstrong    also   complained Of

MIDSUMMER   MADNESS.
Late Victoria papors report that
members of tho Provincial Government confirm the dispatch from Ottawa, published last Saturday, that thoy
have offered ou behalf of the Province
to give $1.OrtO,000 towards the construction of the proposed Pacific cable.
Tho papers also report that tbe news
took the town quite by surprise, which
is no surprise iu itself. They are
not certain how to regard it, but counsel reflection before judging. Oue of
them, Tho Globe, after flirting with
the matter for half a column or so,
says: "The question is altogether
one of such tremendous importance
tbat it is very difficult to arrive off-
band at a decision as to the wisdom of
the Government's action."
Thero should be no difficulty about
it���neither difficulty nor hesitation.
Wheu the dispatch first appeared, The
Miuer deemed it so preposterous that
it refused to tako it seriously and
made no comment on it, believing it
to ho a mere yarn, only a little in advance of the silly season. Now tbat
it is confirmed by Ministers themselves, it can only say that if seriously
made the offer is altogether a foolish
and improper one; if made iu the full
expectation of its being rejected, as it
must be, it is a bid for a little notoriety. It is a cheap imitation of Can
ada's offer of preferential trade and the
Cape's offer of a battleship, with this
difference, however, that Canada and
the Cape had both the power and the
right to carry out their offer, whereas
British Columbia has neither. We
have nothing to do with building Pacific cables. Tho Dominion may engage iu such enterprises, but a Province goes a long way out of its sphere
when it proposes to take a baud in
them. The preposterous nature of the
offer is evident wheu we reflect tbat a
mere handful of people in British Columbia, who find it hard enough
work to provide for the public necessities of the Province, step forward
with tbeir lean purse to help the Imperial Government, with a revenue of
over five hundred millions a yoar, to pay
its share in building an Imperial cable I
If thore is a further limit to Ministerial madness it would be curious to
know just whore it lies.
It is said that it would advertise
the Province, and further that as it
would givo us a ninth interest in the
oablo it would be a good investment
if it paid. So it would, but it would
be a bad investment if it did not pay.
As to its advertising the Provincs,
we aro afraid it would take a long
time to get a milliou dollars' worth
out of it. But from the vorj' nature
of things, it ia impossible tbat thero
could De any lasting or permanent advertisement in it. Thero would be a
shore office somewhere in tho Provinco���winch we would got iu auy oase
���just, as thero aro shore offices in
Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland for
tho numerous Atlantio cables. Who
ovor heard of these as advertisements
for the places named? After the Pacific cable got iuto operation, the name
of British Columbia would nevor ho
heard in connection with it; and as
to ownership, the glory and even the
reputation of that would ho wholly
lost in tho shadow of tho three legitimate partners, Great Britnin, Canada,
and Australia. The offer bas served
to g��t the British Columbia Government talked about, which was probably the purpose of it; it cannot be on-
tortaiuod by the Dominion or tho Imperial Government, and it is altogether so monstrous in character that
the soonor it is hidden away the bettor. What the Victoria editors could
bave been thinking of in giving it
the least countenance passes comprehension.
draft.  In some Western Canadian cities
the overdraft   amounts   well   up   into
the hundreds   of thousands  before the
taxes which constitute the chief source
of revenue become   due   and   payablo.
The criticism is a very stupid one.     J
Another criticism is   not   so stupid,
partaking rather moro of the character
of cunning   and   dishonesty.    It is intended to show that   the   purchase  of
the electric .light   plant was a  better
investment   than   that  of   tbe waterworks.    Duriug     April   the    revenue
from electric light   rates   was   $1,133,
while expenses of  operating were only
$216, thus   showing   a clear  profit   of
$917, or 26 per ceut on   tbo $35,400 invested in it.    The receipts from watei
rates were $623, expenses $311), leaving
a profit of $304, or   less   than   one per
cent, ou the invested capital of $45,000.
The   water  the    Oity   had   to  have,
whether the works could   ho   made   to
pay for themselves   or   not.    It is  tho
same as   money   expended   in   street-
making   or   sowers;   whether   or  not
there is n direct   money   return,   they
havo to  be   provided.    They   are  less
business   enterprises than   necessities.
The electric light   systom was a   business enterprise pure and  simple;   and
when we add to tho cost  of  operating
the  interest  ou   the   purcbaso   price,
which the taxpayer has   to  pay   every
year, wo find that,   instead of paying
25 per cent   profit, it is a  losing  cou-
coru to the   tuno   of   nearly   $1,000  a
month.
The enemies of the Council would do
well to discharge their present critic,
and omploy one who is oithor himself
uot so shallow or has a juster estimate of the intelligence of others.
Tbis morning's issue marks the
first anniversary attained by the daily
issue of The Miuer, and it is with
feelings of confidence and pleasure that
we look forward to the second year
of publication. Every effort has always been made to produce a newsy,
reliable and readable paper, and we
take this opportunity of thanking the
people of Nelson onr patrons generally
for the substantial proofs tbey have
given of their appreciation. During
the past year Nelson has grown aud
The Miner has increased in size also.
During tho coining year Nelson will
surely continue to grow, while before
the year is out we hopo again to be
able to increase the size of the   paper.
SOME CURIOUS CRITICISMS.
During tho four mouths of tho year
so far gone the City Aldermen have
expended, in the conduct of tbe City's
affairB, $21,000 more than thoy havo
taken in. That is, tho City'B overdraft
will amount to that much when all
the cheques orderod to bo issued at the
last mooting aro cashod. This in-a tor
rlblo state of affairs, according to the
only financial export and authority in
town, and it is made worse by the
triumphant demand to know what
they have got to show for it. Terrible
as it is, however, it is quite the usual
tbiug. The bulk of the City's revemio
has not yot begun to come in, and
unless the Aldermen bud determined to
sit dowu and do nothing for six or
nine months, waiting for it, it is inevitable that there   should   be   an over
The most liberal encouragement is
being given to the publication of The
Miner's Kootenay Speoial, which
will be the greatest legitimate enterprise of the kind ever undertaken in
the Iuterior. That Nelsou may be
given the fullest justice, aud nothing
material omitted or overlooked, we
have to request that the proprietors of
all industries engaged iu production,
it does not matter how small, will
either send in particulars or notify
The Miuer of their existence. We desire to make the list of local industries, and indeed of all eutarprises that
are contributing to tho prosperity of
tho town, as complete as possible.
According to latest Parliamentary
reports in detail, the Government at
Ottawa aro waiting for a reply to a
dispatch seut to the Imperial authorities beforo deciding on their policy with
respect to the anti-Japanese legislation of British Columbia. Another
item of interest to tbe politicians was
the reply of the Premier to Sir Charles
Tapper, that, when ho saw the character of tho proposed Redistribution
Bill ho would have pleasure in discovering that there was nothing in it to
givo cause for obstruction. Should tho
implication hero bo sustained by actual fact, tbo pleasure will by no means
be confined to tho loader of tho Opposition.
It came out incidentally (hiring the
Budget debate that Mr. Foster estimates tho present population of tho
Dominion at 5,251,0(10. We trust he is
under tho mark, for that would indicate n rather slow growth. At that
rate wo would hardly roach tho flvo
and a half million mark by the time
the next census is taken.
Is tho Council serious in proposing
to ask tho peope to vote that Dr. Doo-
little's company shall not bo allowed to
charge them less than $3 por thousand

AT THE NELSON  OPERA HOUSE.
The Lyceum Company   Play   "Uuder
Two Flags" Last Night.
A lnrgo audienoe assembled yesterday evening in ill 1 Opera House tn
witness the production of ".Under
Two Flags," by tbe Lyceum Co. This
play is a dramatization of Onida's
famous novel, which is so well known
that n sketch of the plot is uneoessary,
The play was extremely well received though it was thought by some that
the company appeared to bettor advantage on Monday night. However
this mny be, no exception can be taken
to Miss Mamie Eorimern's rendering of
tbo part of "Cigarette," the plucky
warm hearted pretty littlo vivandiere,
nnd which is probably the most lovable of all Onida's characters. Miss
Lorimer looked most charming nnd
played an attractive part with all the
dash nnd spirit those who knew the
play were looking for. Miss Claro
Lawronco mado a handsome and effect-
tive Princess Vouetia. She did somo
clover acting, especially iu the second
aot. Mr. Leland Webb supported
creditably tho very trying part of
Bertie Cecil, while Mr. W. Clifford
made nn excellent Colonel Chatcauroy.
Mr. W. Calvin, as Rake, was very
funny at times. Tho play is full of
dramatic situations, the death of Cigarette at the end of the last aot being
especially effective.
This evening tho Lyceum Company
play tho "Merchantof Venice,"and as
it ia hut seldom that the Nelson Theatre going publio got an opportunity of
seeing legitimate drama competently
hnudled, they should bo certain of a
largo and appreciative audience.
back as evidence. He then managad to
escape. A Chinaman named Sing then
testified that he saw Linn with an
axo in bis hand after the light, though
be did not see tho fight itself. Chief
of Polico McKinnon sworn that Lum
came up to him voluntarily on Monday morning, and said ho was iu
trouble its he had hit a Chinaman with
au axe. The witness warned rho accused not to tall him anything, and
asked 'him no questions. Accused
was not under arrest at the time.
By this timo things began to look rather black for tho accused but Mr. Lum
then got ou tho stand and told u vory
different story. Ho stated that he
went to ask Lee for some money ho
owed him. "I sec in honsoy nxa. No
belong to me." His story was that,
Leo pickod up the axe and wont for
him, but that he seized a club and
managed to boat him off. Lae. seeing
tho axe was too short to reach him
with, dropped it, ran out of tho house
to get a long handled shovel, but was
grabbed by two other Chinamen who
cnnio on tho scene. Ho himself ran
the other way, and took tho axe with
him.
J. D. Mo.yer, a plasterer who witnessed part of tho scrap, gave evidenoe
whiob confirmed part of Lum's story,
especially as to his picking up tho axe
outside the house.
Another Chinaman named Fat, said
ho saw the fight anil that Lum usod
a stick. Ho further said he lived next
to Leo, and thnt tho axo belonged to
Lee not to Lum. He had oftou seen
him chop wood with it.
There was snch a tingle nf contradictory evidence that tho Magistrate
thought ho wonld sloop over the matter, nnd accordingly reserved judgment until today. Mr. R. M. Maodon-
aldji|ipcared for the complainant, and
Mr. Fred Elliott for tho accused.
ACCIDENT  TO SINGERS.

Meet With   a   Misfortune.
Cranbrook, Mny 8.���On Saturday
several members ot the Metropolitan
Opera Company participated in a runaway. Oue of the teams whioh was
convoying tho members from Cranbrook to Fort Steele ran away on a
hill about four miles from the latter
place. The result was that Miss Millard, the soprana, had hor loft arm
broken, and was injured internally,
and Miss Colby, one of the chorus, had
hor right leg broken and was otherwise severely hurt. They wero taken
to tho hospital at Fort Steele. While
the injuries aro not fatal the two principal victims will ho laid up for a couple of mouths. Several other members
wero bruised and injured, but none
so  seriously as to lay them up.

Ymir, May 8. ���A good strike has
been made on the Belle and Rosa
claims, situated ou tbe North Fork of
the Salino river. At the face of the
tunnel, which is now in 135 feet, a
solid body of ore has been disclosed
the full width of the tunnel, and
averaging right across four ner cent,
in copper and $<> in gold. Tho vein
on the surface is only two feet in
width and has widened out to eight
feet, with 90 feet of denth. which is
tli" depth attained at the faco of the
L drift. The owners are Govetto and
Quinlan of Erie, and Coryell of Grand
Forks.
Work has been commenced on the
Armstrong group, which was recently
bonded to a syndicate headed by
Mr. Davis of London, Eng., who is
now on Lis way here. As soon as be
arrives work will be started on the
construction of a mill. Recant reports
from the Belle Singlehurst, ono mile
from the Second Relief mine, are very
ettconragiug. A shaft has been sunk
*.'*i feet, showing the vein to have a
width of IS inches all the way down.
A tnuuel has beeu run to tap the
vein at the drift a distance of 00 feet,
and the vein varies in width in this
tunnel from IN inches to two feet,

across the vein beiug **!)(>. Shipments
will be commenced from this property
as soon as the wagon road gets in a
prot-er condition.
The totiil shipments from tho Second
Relief mine amounted to 1112 tons,
with au average net value of $46.60
per ton.
The Arlington vein at tho 400-foot
level has widened out to 10 feet, with
au average value of $iu   per ton.
Tho Spotted Horse property on
Round Mountain, two miles trom

BILLIARD       TOURNAMENT.
Tho Yellowstone group near Salmo
is a good property. It has been opened
up by two tunnels, and tho intention
is to use the machinery which has
.iust been Installed to drift on the ledge
and to do other development work.
The ledge is Ki feet wide. The ore is
principally free nulling. Thero is
somo that will have to he concentrated. Experts who have examined
the property pronounce it oue of more
thau ordinary importance. The Impression prevails that thn Spokane and
Northern Railway should establish
an agent, at Salmo. The freight and
passenger business to and from that
nlace is considerable and it would
justify tho company in placing an
agent there. The manner iu which
busiuess is now conducted is very nn-
saltsfaotory to tho residents in and
around Salmo. There is considerable
prospecting in the vicinity of the Yellowstone group,   and a Spokane syndi-
Two billiard tournaments aro being
arranged for at the Hume Hotel, one
on the English and one on the American table, which promise to be productive of somo interesting contests. The
prizo for the winner of the tournament
on tho English table is an extremely
handsome cue, while the prize for tbe
other table will be a box of cigars.
Thore is no entrance fee, though of
course the loser of each game will have
to pay tho usual amount tor the use of
the table. It is earnestly requested
that those who wish to compete will
send in their names as soon as possi-
lbe, as the draw will be mado tomorrow evening, and play will commence
immediately after. The games on the
English table will be 100 points up,
and all players will start oven, as the
table has been so short a time in position that the comparative merits of
the players are not known. The tables
and balls are new and of the best
quality, so even the losers may bo assured of an enjoyable gaiuo.
It is not too early to make up your
mind how many copies of The Miner's
Speoial Kootenay Number you will
send to your friends in the East. If
you will leave a list of tho names together with ten cents for each one, at
The Miner offioe the papers will be
mailed for you without any further
trouble on your part.
