THE TOPIC OF THE DAY
Why
Britain and U-S-Should
Go Hand in Hand-
TWO INEVITABLE WARS
Boor and Philippine Wars Were Forced on
the Stronger Powo a- -Sympathy
For the Weaker.
New York, Nov. *>!.���Thn 31st all-
mini banquet of the Chamber of Commerce wan held nt Dolmonico's tonight
and brought together five hundred iep-
risentative business men of New
Yoik. There were also a mini ber of
distinguished guests. President Jessup
presided. His Introductory remarks
were brief. After congratulating the
members of the Chamber upon the
prosperous condition of the country he
proposed the toast "The President of
the United States." Tho toast was
drunk standing. Next President Jessup proposed a toast to Queen Victoria
while tlio orchestra played "God Save
the Queen." The principal speakers
were Governor Roosevelt and White-
law Reid, the latter speaking to the
toast, "The existing friendly lelutions
li.'tweeu Great Britain and the United
Slates." Mr. Reid spoke in part
as follows:
"Long ago Thomas Jefferson remarked thai of all the uations of the earth,
Great Britain could do us the most
harm and therefore wo shonld sedulously cultivate a cordial friendship
with her. Theso later days have
shown that of all the nations of the
.'iiitli, Great Britain aj.t United States
can givo each other the most cheer and
.in each other the most good. There is
a nobler motto on b.nb sides for the
sumo sedulous cultivation of this cordial friendship,
"Iu the lamentable wars in whioh
both are for the moment unhappily
involved, tbo most either need do is to
hope for the other,as for itself, an honorable and a speedy end to conflicts
which neither began. Pew thinking
people seriously suppose either war can
havo any bnt one obvious and inevitable result. The heavier battalions
will win. For the rest, whatever may
he the natural sympathies aroused for
the feebler side in either war, and
whatever may be urged inpartial justi-
lieation of tho attacks by which they
precipitated hostilities, the dispassionate observer will not doubt that is
both eases, tbo end which is tints for-
seen. from thn beginning will be
best for the security of personal rights,
for the ordered liberty and the advancing civilization of the world.
"Wo cannot but rrprot that the victory will bring some natural pangs to
as noble a race as dwells in Europe,
the laen that stood like a rock when
tho blood of Spanish aggression threatened to overflow the continent, the race
that gav.i to England, William of
Orange, and to America, Hie City of
New York. Rut Dutch sympathy with
illusory Afrikander aspirations will
not breed n* blood feud, and meanwhile it cannot prevent the return of
good relations between two people of
the world nearest to ourselves, in origin, aims and Interests, the two great
nations ruled from London aud Berlin.
That is nn event momentous in the
world's history, auspicious for ns and
auspicious for the solution of the onst-
ern pr.il.I.huh in which wo must now
bear our share. No doubt it is our
duty to c-.iltivato friendly relations
with nil peoples, and they may be
right who say that in general we
should seek no speeial relations with
any, but you cannot overrule the forceH
oi nature, or bind with the parchment,
of diplomatists the hidden and desir-
'iblo influences of blood and history,
isny without hesitation that if there
at^ three great nations in the world
thai Hud and nature meant for eternal
pence ami nmity with each other, those
three ure Great Britain, Germany, and
the United States. There is obviously
every reason why England and Germany should he friends, and yet more
that th-i United States shoo/.l welcome
and prize ttieir growing   friendship. "
After commenting on the close com
morals]   relations  lutween the throe
countries Mr. Reid continued:
" We have pledged the open door in
the Philippines to Spain by a document
*Wi .'.. now the supreme law of the
land as well as the constitution, cud
wbut we givo to Spain we shnll not refuse to the most bvored nations.   Th��
Philippines then are, through our possession, added tn the commercial mnp
of the world, and 1 venture to think
thnt in the century that is dawning
they will fill a large space upon it.
Does anyone in this company of great
merchants ask what good onr trade
with them will bo to ns if they are
open to everybody? Let me answer by
asking what good onr trade with
Great Britain is to ns? It is open to
everybody, or onr trade with Prance or
Germany? Does anyone believe that,
with the political control and with
the Pacific Ocean In our bunds we must
still he such feeble competitors iu eastern markets that we cannot command
trade? I have not thus rated the enterprise or the ability of my conntry.
men. So we weloomo to the oust nil
the world, and those we shall see often -
est. there will be our English and our
German friends. Together we shall
outer the vast awakening unknown.
where dwell one-fourth of the people
of the world, and together in peaceful
rivalry we must bear our respective
shares of the white man's burden in
the dark places of the earth."
A BRILLIANT BANQUET,
It Was Tendered to Emperor William

The toasts were very formal. Tho
Prince of Wales rose first saying:
"By command of the Queen, tho German Emperor and Empress, " this was
followed by the German National anthem. Emperor William raised his
glass to the sinipio words, "The
Queen," after which the British National anthem was played. As it

London, Nov. 31.���Lady Salisbury,
wife of the Premier, who has been in
ill henllh for a long time, suffering n
second stroke of paralysis in July last,

late Hon. Sir Edward Hall Alderscu,

which it will fiud hard lo make good.

loved as "Father Pat," has severed his
connection with tho English church

the State Department nt Washington
that the Dominion of Canada had accepted with pleasure tlio invitation to
be represented at the exposition' which
is to be bold in this oity in 1900,
ESTCOURT IS
NOW ISOLATED
It Is Thought the Boers Have Cut the
Wires to the South of It.
RELIEF  FORCE  ADVANCES   SLOWLY
Seems to Be Difficulty in Entraining at Durban   Not So
at Capetown   Naauwport Has Been Re-Occupied.
Lord Methuen's Baggage.
London, Nov. 21. ���The announcement from Durban that communication with Estcourt is interrupted seems
to confirm the belief that a Boer command has established itself at Will-
grange or near the Moori river and
has cut the wires. Nevertheless
whatever definite knowledge the British officers may have obtained from the
scouts of tho disposition of tbe Boer
commands in Na'tal, aud tho conditions of the beleaguered garrisons particularly, nothing has been allowed to
develop fur the public information.
It is certain that owing to the hard
work of debarkation and entraining nt
Durban the preparations for tbo advance of the relief force ore in no wise
so advanced a shape as has heen supposed This may also be due tc the necessity of pushing stores and provisions to the front in needful quantities
before tho troops are sent.
On the other hand the dispatch with
which troops are being rushed forward
from Capetown equally tends to show
that all such preparations regarding
forage and provisions were already
well advanced before the troops arrived at Capetown.
General Methuen's baggage has arrived at De Aar, addressed to Lord
Methuen, Pretoria, via Capetown.
The reoccupation ut Naanwpoort is
good news for the British. It is not
known hero from what points the
tro ips come but it is believed they
were from Do Aar, in which event it
will not be long before Sternberg also
is reoooupied. Naauwpoort commands
the gap in tho Kikvorshberg, the last
strong fighting position south of
Orange River and admirably suited
to Boer tactics.
Colonel Royston's dispatoh from
Ladysmith finally disposes of all ro.
ports of another great British victory
there last  Wednesday.
The Duke of Portland has contributed ��10,OUO for Red Cross Society work

London, Nov. 22.���The war correspondent of The Standard at' Estcourt
telegraphs as follows under Monday's
date, no actujl confirmation can be
obtained of the report, that General
Jouberl bus moved from his position
in frcut of La.ljsmitb, but onr patrons and spies have ascertained beyond
a doubt that several small commands
are winking southward and there is a
growing belief here that we will niovo
Inwards Ladysmith about, tho end of
this week.
London, Nov. S3.���Late last evening
the War Olllce made publio two dis
patches from General Buller at Capetown. The first bad heen received
from General Clery, dated Monday,
Noveinnei 20,'and announced thut three
privates were wounded the previous
day at Mooi River. Tho second was
from Colonel Baden Powell dated at
Mafeking, Nov. 0, saying:
"All woll here. We have had a few
successful sorties, our loss is two officers and 17 men killed,and four officers
and 29 men wounded. Enemy's loss
is heavy. His numbers are decreasing
but his guns remain and shell us,
keeping out of tbe range of our small
guus. Have had no news from the
outside since October 20."

yesterday   (Wednesday)   and the sunie
condition exists this   morning.    There
hns been no farther bombardment ami
the clients heretofore have heen trilling. We aro anxious for nows from
the south."
Estcourt, Nov. 20.���The rumors of
the glorious victory achieved by General White on Wednesday Inst aro still
unconfirmed, Little credence is attached to this especially as it is added,tbat
General White has threatened to place
many hundreds ot prisoners inconspicuous places should llie shelling ot the
town continue.
Reports received from southwuid
says tho Boers are separating into foraging and pillaging parlies, who are
looting stores, stealing cattle and ransacking bouses. It is added tbat one
farmer became so incensed tbat he

was presented to the Transvaal council
of war today says :
"Heavy nun firing wns heard in the
direction of Estcourt yesterday, and a
continuous rifle fire is proceeding south

KRUGER'S BOOKISHNESS.
London, Nov. 21.���President Kramer's refusal to allow 1'niied States
Consul Macrnm to exercise the powers
of British Agent at Pretoria lids resulted in ureal disappointment. There
were many callers at Iho United States
embassy today who were informed thai
the United Males was no longer able
to forward messages to or secure information regarding the British pris
oners Though Mr. Maorniu appai
cully still remains the iiomn.nl ngeul
Of Great Britain, he is practically .Ic
prived of all (lowers pertaining to the
position. It is understood that President Kruger objected to Mr Macruin
representing I treat Britain on the
grouud thai the United Slates claims
lo neutrality were prejudiced hj hei
evident friendship for Great Britain.
All communications to tho British
prisoners now go through the ordinary
military  channels whioh   will render
their ultimate delivery doubtful, and
certainly (he British Government so far
has not taken any stups io change tho
present condition of the prisoners.
A Government official informed a
representative of 'lie Associated Press
that be did not see any good in trying
to get any otbor power to aot in their
behalf as President Kruger would
doubtless treat its representative in the
same manner that bo had treated the
representative of the United.States.
"Moreover," thi' offioial added "it
is not likely that President Kroger

sarcastically that M. Lonbet, "with

The Premier replied that the Government had not authorized carrying
uny red tings in tlie procession, adding
that whatever discordant notes may
have been struck yesterday, thoy only
served to emphasize tbo magnificent
acclamation which greeted Ihe Republic and its lirst magistral.'. Continuing le Premier remarked:
"It is useless to endeavor to excite

IV (!��� P. R. Business.
The St. Paul Globe of Friday gives
addditlonal particulars of the light being made bj the northern smelter In-
terests againsl the suggestion of President Hill that smelters he established
in or near Spokane. The Globe artiole
is as follows :
"Representatives of the smelting und
mining interests of the Kootenay district held a conforonco yesterday all
day in tbe office of the traffic manager
01" the Groat Northern, with representatives of that lino and the Canadian
Paoiflo for the purpose of discussing
nud agreeing 011 oro and mining product), freight rates eastboun.t and westbound from the shipping points tributary to tho Kootenny valley. The
Northern Pacific, was not represented.
Its receipts from this district, owing
to the course of its westward line,
are small and Ihe road lias been accustomed lu turn over the task of rate
making to its two competitors, abiding
by the result.
"The Canadian Pacific was represented by General Freight and Traffic
Manager Bosworth, Montieal; F. W.
Peters, General Freight Agent, Nelson, B. O., and W. I. Mnclnnea, General Freight Agent at Winnipeg. Tho
results of tbo conference, were a common understanding on the rate question and valuable   suggestions both   to
the railroads and the mining representatives, No decision has yet been
arrived at and Iho questions laid before
tho Great Northern and Canadian Pu-
oiflo will be taken under advisement.
"Speaking of tbe conditions iu tho
Kootenay district, a lepreseutative of
the Canadian Pacific stated that ut
present the larger pari of the ore ship,
ments nie routed via the line which
he represents. The Great Northern
owns the Spokane & Northern, whioh

and receives ore al oilier points, but
owing In tlio fact that the majority
of the western smelters handling Canadian and Northern Idaho and Washington mine products urn located north
of the boundary line, works at Trail
and Nelson, B. ('., ban lie tho major
part of the shipments, depriving tin.

which they would receive if there wore
American Bmelters to care fortbeore.
"The offioial was questioned concerning bis road's attitude to the pro-
oose.l establishment 01 smelting works
at Spokane and said :
"'The Canadian Paoiflo will light
the project to the end.     We don't want
another smelter iu American tern-
lory. The present works north of the

that a smeller he constructed at Spokane is excellent irom his point of
view, and would no doubt   be of great
benefit to the .ity Frankly, thu Canadian Paoiflo will not stand idle if
any such attempt is made to secure a
large part of the ore shipments by
either tho Great Northern or North-
cm Pacific, It is to our iutorost to
prevent the construction of works Inside uf the territory of tbe American
roads, for liny would cut into onr business and cause trouble all around

ALIEN  MINERS.
throughout, but nut the Same boundaries. Only last session it was gerrymandered, as it wns not considered
safe; in faot, it wns as certain as these
things can bo lhat Mr. Greenway
would suffer defeat with the constituency as it was. Four years ago il had
special treatment of a shn'lar character, and for a similar reason. The
fact is that during the last twelve years
it can scarcely be said that Mr. Greenway has faced the same constituency
twice in 9uccessii.il.
There is no woid of Mr. Clnto yet,
but his presence in the Slocan district
may soon be expected. Mr. Olute is
the gentUiniuu whom the Ottawa Government named as Commissioner to
inquire into the mining conditions,
with especial reference to the employment of nlion labor. Some one started the cry that the mine owners were
making wholesale importations of Italians from Idaho and Washington, and
the Unions, becoming alarmed, telegraphed to the Premier, begging that
be would euforce the Alien Labor
Act. Before doing this the Pretrier
and his colleagues have concluded
tbat a close study of tbe situation
wonld be valuable as a preliminary,
and Mr. Clute was selected for tbe
task. The appointment is probably a
good one. He has had some experience in investigations involving labor
problems of one kind or another; he is
a lawyer of Rood standing in Toronto,
and he will hardly bo suspected of lack
of sympathy for the laboring cIuhs.
Being a politician, too, he may be expected to keep an eye on that vole iu
the interest of the Government that
employs him.
Exactly what he is expected to do,
however, is by no means clear. By arrangement with the American authorities, and as a condition of pending
negotiations, the Premier has consented to an indefinite suspension of the
Alien Labor Act. To enforce it in British Columbia would be a violation of
his agreement, to the almost ceitain
prejudice jf the negotiations. Then,
again, it is not clear what there is to
investigate. The cry of '"Dago labor"
seems to be little more than a scare,
Ho may inquire into tbo working of
the Eight-Hour law in all its relations
and bearings, but that is a matter witb
which the Federal Government is
only indirectly concerned. He cannot
presume to interfere, with any appearance of authority, with questions and
issues that arc purely Prmincial. Ho
will require to conline himself to a
study of the situation as it is affected
by, or may in its turn affect, the Alien
Labor Aot.
If in sympathy with the Act he may
report iu favor of its strict enforcement. That m, he will report that
Canadian miners should be piotected
against the competition of aliens. But
there are other aliens besides tho Italians. A very curious feature of the
situation is the fact that tbe men who
are loudest in demanding that Italians
bo excluded arc themselves aliens, and
many of them are of a most undesirable character. Indeed, they are the
source of all the mining tronblos that
prevail. Thoy are as bad a lot as a
country could bo enrsod with���professional agitators, not unaccustomed to
violence marked with crimes. The
presenoe of one of them is worse than
that of a hundred Italians, tf the law
is to be enforced, it must be against
these American aliens as well as Italian aliens, Tlieie cannot tie discrimination; that, ontrago has so far been
spar id Canadian laws, and the al.so-
1 'to Impartiality of thom tnuBl be protected to the end. If tho Italians must
go, tben out will have to go every
American alien miner iu Hrttish Columbia. As thut would rid us of the
Connr d'Aleuo element, Mr. Chile':.
coining should bo welcomed on all
sidos.
Those poor Italians nre unconsciously
affording an example of much ado about
nothing;. It was teported that they
wore being imported into the Slocan
in droves, und alarmed at tbo invasion
the Sandon Union wired Ottawa that
the thousand Oanadlan miners in the
district, with their wives and families, wero being crowded out and of
course would have to starve. The
Mining Review says it is doubtful if
there aro five Italian miners in Ihe
whole district.
Tho following item, from Tho Golden Era, brings us eloso to the Transvaal war,even without our contingent:
"Kov. Mr. Turner has just received
word that his son-who belongs to the
Gordon Highlanders was wounded at
McFarqnhrar's Farm, on October 80th,
Much sympathy is felt for Rev. Mr.
Turner in his time of anxiety for the
recovery of his son."

THE CITY COUNCIL
MONETARY BY-UW TO BE SUBMITTED TO THE RATEPAYERS.
Tlis Eleotrio Light, System DiseuHssd��� An
A: pointuient Made-Oity Wharf.
Street Numbering,
A siwcial meeting of the City Council was held last night, tho Mayor pre-
elding. Aid. Hilljev, MoKillop aud
Klrkpatriok wore also present.
A letter watt read from the Secretary
uf the Board of Trade onolosiug a res-
olntion nskmg the Council to put the
City Wharf iu a safe condition, nnd
submit a by-law to raise thu necessary
fuiuls The latter was dated Nov. 18,
nint the Oity Cleric said he only received it this morning.
Aid. Hillyor bore testimony to the
dangerous condition of the wharf, hut
snid ho wonld not hfl disposed to spend
nny money on it nt present, His idea
was that the wharf should lie made the
width of the street. As at present
thero was not room for teams to turn
on tlio wharf, and every other pluuk
wsu worn out. It wns positively dangerous. To make the wharf the width
uf the street and put it in a proper
stato of repair would cost from $8,000
to $10,000.
Th9 City Clerk pointed out a by-law
niiylit he submitted at the election for
Aldermen.
Thero was no definite action decided
noon, save to put down a few plunks
where those in use were worn out.
The Mayor called attention to several complaints us to electric lighting,
He said thero was a man working on
the tramway works, Mr. ,T. Redman,
who was anxious to take charge of tho
works at $00 per month.
The applicant in question wns in attendance and milimittod several testimonials as to competency.
Aid. Hillyer asked if there was sufficient water-power to drive the plant.
He understood thnt there was not
The Ciiy Engineer thought it might
lie well to uross-oonneot the two pipes
���the JJ8-inch and the 14-inch. This
would give greater  power.
Aid. Hillyer said that he noticed it
lot of waste. Stotekeepers kept their
lights ljuriiin^ all night contrary to
the by-law.
The City Clerk nlso bore testimony
to the wusto of light, Stnres wero al-
hiwed two lights burning all night-
one in the front nnd the other in the
reir. Instead of complying with this
nrrangement, they invariably kept all
their lights burning,
Aid. Hillyer advocated appointing a
first class eleotribian to look after the
plant, if any chuugo was to  be   made.
The Mayor contended that it would
uot bo necessary to have a thorough
electrician to look after tbe machinery,
Aid. Hillyer moved that the applicant be appointed under Mr. Bliss foi
a term of oue month.
This was changed to read under the
Oity Engineer and in this form it
pnssad.
A by-law was submitted enahling
Mr. T, Madden to put steps from the
sidewalk to the cellars of his new
building on Ward street.
Aid. Hillyer said that Mr. Madden
was quite willing to enter into contract to indemnify the City against no
cident if permitted to place tho steps
to bU building.
Mr. Galliher, Citv Solicitor, advised that this being a '"particular
privilege," it would bo necessary to
havo it embodied iu n by-law and submitted to the people.
It was d Tided to submit the by-law,
which wns read a first and second
time, after which tbe Council went
into committee of thn whole ou Bylaws no and 58���tho one to raise $8,000
for waterworks purposes, and tbe oilier
$7,000 for electric light system.
Tho committee rose and reported in
favor of the by-law, which were approved, Aid. Hillyer protesting against
the Electric Light By-law.
Tenders were received from The
Miner and The Tribune for publishing
the by-laws. The Miner's figures wen
1110.60 and those of The Tribune |85.
The lowest tender  woh adopted.
A by-law for house numbering wns
introduced by Aid. MoKillop, reud a
second lime and referred to City Solicitor.
Tho Counoil then adjourned.
pleasing solos was that of Miss Grases
and one would wish to hear her voice
in more than one selection.
Tonight a "genuine rag time opera
comedy," is promised and if last
night's concert can he taken as a cn-
torion thore will lie uu evening of
solid enjoyment. Tbo cake walk,
which proved a popular feature last
night, will be given on u larger scale
aud the audience will decide the disposal ot the cake. The successful couple will present it to the Kootenay
Lake General Hospital.
A LARGE   AUDIENCE   PLEASED.
Nashvillo Students Provide an Excellent  Entertainment,
If an estimate of a performnnco can
he mado from the applause with which
it is received it oan lie safely said that
the Nushvillo students last night gave
an excellent entertainment at the
Opera Houso. The house was crowded
aud tho applause nt various intervals
was of an uproarious nature thnt demanded two or throi encores. It was
a pleasing pot pcmrrl of uearo melody
and mirth, genuinely good nnd productive of genuine enjoyment, The ensemble work was perhaps the best, but
it was all good and some better. The
voices blended splendidly and tha beautiful negro molodios wero t.over Beard
to better advantage in Nelsou.
The male quartette gnve some bun,(irons seluotious iu a manner that brought

The Tramway Co., Iibvo their tiacl.s
laid as far as the Grove Hotel, nearly
opposite the Nelson & Fort Sheppard
Railway depot. The line is not laid
over the old chain-labor bridge near
this point, hut takes n route round by
the brick yard. Rails are laid at. the
point where traffic was allowable for a
few days nt tlio Hume Addition, but it
is now closed, the new rond having
been opened.
A shnkey- looking individual ap
preached the police enily vesterdny
morning and naked to be taken in custody. When asked why he wished to
be arrested he explained that he had
no where to rest his head, aud that he
bad been five nights in the sime mien
viable position, He was taken to the
lockup and permitted tn partake of nil
the luxuries of that establishment for
the remainder of the dark term and
during yesterday. The.man is evidently recovering from a drunk iu the
opinion of the police. When his ensh
became exhausted the saloon men threw
him out.    The old, old  story.
During the building of many of Ihe
present blocks the sidewalks of the
City are in a bad way. The least th.it
might be expected is that the contractors should protect pedestrians from
accident by placing a rail at the dangerous spots. A serious accident whn
narrowly averted the other night at
one of those buildings. A couple of
planks are laid to enable people to nav-
ignte over the mud. These work all
right during the daytime, but st night
the planks are not visible, and those
Who travel on shanks' mare are liable
to tumble over. If accident occurs the
Citv or tho contractor can certainly be
held liable.
In grading the principal thoroughfares of the City it is found that the
crossings have been laid rather low,
,vith the result that they are constantly flooded, and despite the tact that a
very energetio man is assigned to
look after them, they are practically
impassable.
There's mud iu the City galore,

MINING NEWS.
Mr. J. Laing Stocks, secretary of the
Duncan Mines Limited, returned yes-
terday from a visit to the Granite mill
bringing with him 800 ounces of anml
gam. Thete is at present no safe at
the mill, so the amalgam is brought
into Nelson for safe keeping. One
has been bought, however, and the
amalgam will In future be retorted on
the spot. Mr. Stotiks says the mill is
running very smoothly and, is giving
every satisfaction. Fifteen stamp!
were dropping when he was there, but
the whole twenty were in use last
night. The Poormnn tram is not yet
connected with the aerial ropeway,
and the roads just now are in such a
condition that economical hauling
from the Koyal Canadian is impossible, so that tbo milling is now running
011  Granite  ore alone,   The Granite
seems quite capable of Supplying the
mill as the reserves in the ore bins ate
hardly being drawn on at all. Number 8 level, both noith and south, is
lookiug extremely well, aid every
tiling generally seems in good shape.
��� *   ���
From Grand Forks comes the information that 150 men ate working at
tho Grnnby Smelter. The sampler
frame is abont oomplete.1, and the
brickwork of the Hues, dustchambeis
and stacks are Hearing completion.
The spur track by which tho ores will
bo carried to the smelter leaves the
main line a little to the west of Columbia and crosses the noith branch of
the Kettle River at a point near the
dam. The ore ears will dump their
contents 30 feet above the sampler
bins, which are the   highest points   in
the smelter.
��� ��   ��
At the Crescent, in Skylark camp, a
foioe is hard at work, under the management of .1. M. Burke. A shaft has
been snnk on the property to a depth
of 75 feet; ciosscnttiug is being done
from that level. There nre two leads,
one of which is high grade, running
as high at) $125 per ton. Tlie smelter
lead runs from ten inches to two feel
in width. The values aro in silver
and gold. It is the intention to connect both leads by means nf a crosscut.
���Cascade Record.
��� ��   ��
News has been received from Dead-
wood camp that a strike had been made
there ou the Gold Bug, which is one of
the properties of the Boundary Creek
Mining & Milling Company. The
strike was made in tho crosscut on the
:i7-I'oot level, and so far about two and
a half carloads of ore have been taken
from it. The ore is of a very high
grade, running from (800 to $400 per
ton. It will be sent to the smelter
ut Trail and will be the first shipment
from Deadwood camp. The main shaft
on the Gold Bugjs down to a depth
of 110 feet and a crosscut is iu for a
distance of 28 feet and it is anticipated by the time it has been driven 20
feet further tbe vein will be tapped.
'the intention is to put in a power
plant iu tbe spring. It will be a seven-
drill compressor and will be located on
the Fred D., a claim which adjoins
the Gold Bug. There are 15 claims
in the group, which is owned by the
Boundary Creek Mining & Milling
Company. This company is financed
by  the Loudon &   Canada  Syndicate,
of London.
>   ���   ���
The main shaft of the Mother Lode
mine in Deadwood camp, is now down
1100 feet and is all in ore estimated to
averago in value at loast $15 to the
tou. After sinking a few feet deeper
for a sump, a station will bo cut out
and then drifting at the 800 foot level
will bo commenced. The north drift
at the 200-foot level is now 510 feet
fiom the shaft in a big body of ore
that will ruu abont $18. For the last
120 feet this diifthas been all in ore of
good grade, An upraise will shortly
be started at 41)0 feet iu, to connect
this level with tbe old workings above.
As the winze from the old crosscut
tunnel is down only 186 feet there is
still a distance of 140 feet to be holed
through to make the intended connection between old aud new workings.

NEWS   FROM   VANCOUVER.
Murder    and   Cannibalism   Roported
From the Admiralty Islands.
Vancouver, B. C, Nov. 21.���Quite
a sensation has been caossd in Metho

ARE AFTER BLOOD.
The Yaqni ludians Like the Mauser
Bullets.
Chicago, Nov. 31,���A special to the
Record from Guayraas,   Mex., says:
A Yaqui Indian, a sub-chief of that
tribe, who deserted from the rebels
a few days ago, has arrived here and
has furnished the military authorities
with much valuable information con-
oerning the location and plan of organisation of the Indian forces. He
says the Mauser rifles do not cause as
much fear among the Indians as the
old Remingtons, as the bullets do not
inflict such severe wounds and they
heal quiokly. There are, according to
this Indian, about 2,200 of which 2,-
000 are north of the Yaqui River and
200 in the mountains. The rebels are
organized in companies of 40 men
each, under a captuin and are drilling
regularly, and the chiefs continually
exhort them to continue tho light until the white men are all killed.

Campaign in the Philippines Prosecuted Under Great Difficulties.
Manila, Nov. 21.-Onlv very fragmentary reports reach Manila of the
operations north of hen-, which when
the whole Btory is known, will piove
to have been*tho most remarkable cam ���
paign the Philippine war has known.
Lawton's division is spread thinly over
the territory beyond San Jose, where
the telegraph communication ends.
Young's two regiments of cavalry
are continuing their rapid sweep into
the new country and the infantry is
being shoved forward to bold the towns
wliich the ouvalry takes. All theso
movements are in a country whero the
natural difficulties are increased indescribably by the tropical rains, milking
rivers of the creeks and swamps of the
fields. Wagon transportation is supposed to have been practically abandoned.
The American troops are living on the
captured supplies and the little produce
wliich the insurgent levies huve left.
Major Swigert's squadron of the
Third Cavalry is reported to he engaging a greatly suporior force at Pozor-
rupee, northwest of Diijiupan.
These troops have fought three engagements and they are now holding
their positions, awaiting reinforcements. It is believed at headquarters
that this force is covering the retreat
of the insurgent leaders to the Binguot
mountains; that the insurgents have
planned to retreat northeast ulong the
Tayug road, which is stocked wiih
storehouses, three of which the Atnei-
icans havo had to diaw upon en route;
and that only the insurgents' advance force had passed Tayug before
the American occupation, the main
body of Aguinaldo's army being within our linen. Tbe majority of these
insurgents may disorganize and pose
as aroigos when Americans overtake
them.
Among the scraps of news obtainable are stories of hardships with
which the American army is meeting.
It is reported, for instance, that Law-
ton recently narrowly escaped dr .wu-
ing while fording a river when Lieutenant Luna and two privates wero
lost.
