NEW    COMMISSIONERS TO HEM THE REBELS IN-
RUSSIA WANTS BEOREOS",
Lako Harbors are Crowded with  Vessels
Unable to Unload Oargoes for
Lack of Mon.
Buffalo, N. Y., May 1.-Unless the
trouble that has existed for thn past
ten days between tbe contractors
nnd grain shovellers of this port is
settled hy noon tomorrow, it is suid
that the entire commeroe of the Grent
Lakes will be tied up. Already there
are between fill nnd 00 Great Lake vessels ly in (^ in Ihn harbor here londed
with grain and men cannot bo had to
unload tbem. By tomorrow noon it
is expected that fully 7,600,000 bushels
of grain will be in tbe harbor and this
amount will be ndded to hourly.
Ocean vessels nre being held at New
York and other Atlantio ("oast, points
for oargoes and claims for demurrage
nro being made on nil sides.
Tho trouble began when the contractors for unloading (���rain at this port
announced thut instead of paying I lie
men $1.85 por 1,0(10 bushels, as in tbe
past, they would be paid 3,1 conts nn
liour. This, the men claimed, wns
equivalent to a 2b per cent, reduction
and they refused to go to work. It* requires from 3,600 to 8,000 men to union I the boats arriving here, and as
the contractors have not been able to
secure more thau '200 men to won**
for thein, matters on the docks are
about at a stand still.
Today the paoknge freight handlers
to the number of 780 refused to go to
work until the shovellers' grievances
had boon remedied, nnd several large
freight boats nre lying nt the docks
waiting to be unloaded, Today thn
meeting of the strikers was held nnd
it was announced thnt unless a settlement wns reached by noon tomorrow,
all of the grain and freight handlers at
Cleveland, Detroit nnd Milwaukee
would quit work.
Tho strikers say thnt now that the
movement has fairly started they will
not return to work until the contractor or middleman has been eliminated,
nnd they are allowed to deal direct
with the Lake Carriers Association or
the owners of vessels. It is believed
that the grain blockade here will havo
the effect of diverting considerable
traffic to the Canadian canal route.
Owners of boats now lying in the
harbor, say that thoy are losing fully
$300 a day eaoh as a result of the tie-
up.
Buffalo, May 4.��� President Oorrigan,
of the Lake Curriers' Association,
nrrived in Buffalo tonight. In an interview he stated that the Associntion. whiob controls all of the shipping in the Grent Lakes outside of
Oanada, intended to back up the contractors in Buffalo in their fight with
the grniu shovellers, the first stop in
thnt direction being taken today,when
all grain shipments to Buffalo bed
heen ordered stopped. It wns tho intention Mr. Oorrigan said, to divert
the grain to Cleveland nud other
lake ports where there were elevators,
nud also utilize the Welland Canal
and St. Lawrence river routes.
Should the strike continue any length
of time, Mr. Oorrigan said, it would
menu thn ruination of Buffalo as a
grain shipping point, nnd would undoubtedly prove n boom of the biggest
kind for tho Canadian route. Shippers
who hnd never before utilized the
Montreal outlet would now do so and
becoming familiar with it wonld continue to ship their gruin thnt way.
CANADA-AUSTRALIA CABLE.
Loudon, May 4.���The report of the
Pacifio Cable Committee which wns
issued todny, shows that the notnmit-
tee had recommended that the proposed cable be opened and opernted by
the Governments interested, Canada
nnd Anstrnlnsia, aud the geneinl direction said to be in the hands nf a
manager in London, under control of n
small board upon whioh the said associated Governments be represented.
Loudon, May 4.���A Parliamentary
paper containing oorre-pondenoe re
gnrding the proposed Pacific cable wns
issued tonight embodied in the paper
is the statement made by Mr. Cham
beilain in tho House ot Commons on
April 28 to tho effect that the British
Government had made proposals to the
Government, of Canada and Australia
on tho subject ot the proposed cable,
but that no final arrangement hnd been
mnde.
To this is ndded the statement that
the Government of Great Britain hns
always considered that the construction ��of a cable is of far greater importance to Anstrnlinsia nnd Canada
than to tbe United Kingdom, lor
this reason Government considers that
the responsibility of construction aud
operating the cable should bo borne by

Washington, Mny 4.���The war department is satisfied from the despatches received from General Otis
today that tho Amerioan oommander
bus put, aside tho insurgent temporizing over pence und has turned his attention to the most aggressive tactics.
The wisdom of this course was fully
approved by otllciuls bore, who hnve
foreseen thnt tho rebels need further
chastisement in order to bring them to
a realizing snnso of their position.
Tbo early despatobea from Genaral
Otis dearly defined the genernl plan ot
his latest movements, He is moving
in two columns, Major-General McArthur pushing straight forward ovor
a nine mile stretch of country between
Calumpit nud the latest rebel stronghold, Son Fernando, and Major General Lawton directing a strong force
under Colonel Summer, to prevent the
insurgents from retreating from Sun
Fernando into the mountains to the
north. Tho Inter desputehes show
thero had heen hot work in the execution of this movement, particularly
so in General MeArlhur's advance on
Sau Fernando.
The defeat of Luna at St. Thomas,
and the scattering of the insurgent
forces leuves McArthur four miles
from Sun Fernando with u clear road
'"fore him. He will take the city
tomorrow morning according to Gen-
einl Utis' plans. The taking of
towns is no longer looked ou by the
authorities here as of chief moment,
the main consideration is to intercept
the insurgents. General Lawtou
moved northward today to Maasin,
and designed to koep a body of American troops to the north of tho rebols
and between them und their line
of retreat to tho mountains. A successful execution of tbis movo will
leave the insurgents well nigh surrounded in tho north, though tbere is
n stretch of about seven miles from
Maasin to the Rio Grande river along
which   tne rebels are letiring.
If the rebels do not succeed in getting into the mountains, the department's belief iB that they cannot continue an organized resistance, as the
mountainous localities afford much
less opportunity for easy sustenance
than the rice lands along tbe foot
hills.

A WOMAN'S WARD
Mr. J. J. Hasiott immigration agent
for the O. .PR. with headquarters in
London, England, wns iu Nelson yes-
terday on one of his annual trips
through Canada. Mr. Haslett went
over by the main line to Victoria and
is uow on his way back through the
Crow's Nest Puss. He said that this
was his first visit to Kootenay, nnd
he wns ranch struck by what he had
Been. He hud beard n greet deal about
the country, bnt did not expect to see
tho country so developed us it wns.
He muob admired the line buildings
on Haker streot.
"What is the feeling nf the Loudon
money market with regard to British
Columbia, Mr. Haslett?" asked the
Miner muu.
"To get general interest aroused in
the mining industry of British Oolum-
bin,"ho replied, 'u new clique of
mining operators in London should he
formed. Tho present operators nre
deeply interested iu South Africa nnd
Australia where over oue hundred millions of Oapital is invested. So to
preserve their own interests the operators try to prevent the interest of the
English investing public beiug diverted from their domains to British Columbia. One very powerful oompany
is, 'however, in B. C., the London
Globe, of which the B. A. O. is n subsidiary compuuy. They huve well nd-
vertisrd and distinguished men on
their bonrd, as for instnnee Lord Duff-
erin, Lord William Beresford and Mr.
Whittnker Wright. If they begin lo
pay dividends, the attention of the
British investing public will be Immediately directed to this provinco
with important results.
"Thoro is one thing" ndded Mr.
Haslett, "thut. your boards of trade
out here, nnd other organized bodies
should pay more attention to, nud thnt
ii the advertisement of the oonntry,
especially by ore exhibits. A well selected exihbit of ores sent to our office
in Lou Ion would be of grent service
to yon out hero People are always
coming in asking for nil sorts of information and the exhibit wonld attract grent attention."
Mr. Haslett also stated that the C.

No Accommodation for Private Patients.
NEW WW IS WANTED.
The Kootenay Lake   Qonoral  Hospital is
tho only Public Hospital in tho
Kootenays*
The Kootenay Luke General Hospital
is sadly in need of inereused aceomoda-
ious. As the summer season comes
nu this is felt morn every day. Last
Bum mor, when tho fever wus rife,'
three nnd four patients a day worn
turned away from tho institution owing to the luck of place to put them.
Till the liUilies'Aid took hold and gave
their pratiocal sympathy to the institution, the onn lurge table hud to serve
us nn operating und dining table,
Ai present the operating room,
which is but u smnll unte-room opening off lhe general ward is occupied by
n   woman. The two wards   in   use
are ooromdious nnd bright, but the
lack of private wards for patients who
wish private attendane is very trying. Tbem are many sm..ll rooms nnd
sheds connected with the institution
which ure absolutely useless, the present building being but part ol the original plan, these were evidently intended fm uses connected with the rest of
iho building, not yet put up. These,
as it now stunds ure ot no use, nnd if
Ihe building wns extended might us
well be pulled down, as it would cost
more to put them into repair than to
putinjnew ones, The hospital stands in
a most beutitfnl, breezy locality.
und nt the eastern end there is plenty
of spnee for tbe erection oi un uddi-
tiiinnl wing. If this wns put up, with
u wan nil's publio wind downstair*-,
to nccoinmndnte ten, nnd two private
wards, and both rooms, ami npstu.rs
private wards for man,the whole fitted
for 60 patients with a good operating
ward and bath room, the institution
would be In a position to moot the
coining sum mer's demnnds. The
present bathroom, besides being small,
und having but one com mun zinc tub,
hns, owing to leakage ut vurious
limes, become dump nnd unfitted for
uses it oould bo put to if in proper order.
As well us now wards a larger
kitchen is needed. The grounds at
a very slight expense could be fenced
and made beautiful, so they could be
used by putients, ns in certain cases,
fresh nir nud direful ui tendance nre
the only medicines needed. The hospital officials estimate that for the
building outlined above, about $2,-
5(10 is needed. Of this sum, tho City
Council bus promised $500, on the condition that the citizens raise the $2,-
000, Already $600 has beon promised
but so much morn is needed that every
citizen of Nelsou nud the Kootenays
should do his best townrds helping forward an institution of whioh he is pnrt
owner, and of which, if overtaken
by poverty und accident or ill-health ho
can be sure of refuge.
Tho mortality of the Hospital for
the past, venr" was 4l.Jper cent, the
lowest of nny similar institution, so
far as known, in the Province. This
despite the number of serious rnsis
treated there. Most of the lurger mining companies make arrangements oon*
i erning their employees ut one or other
of tlm hospituls, but the smaller cues
as ti rule have no such arrangement.
All over the Kootenays, some places
in dozens, others in two and three's
are little groups of miners nnd prospectors working claims or looking for
new cues.    Some of thorn   hnve money
but the raajotiry bave a very narrow
margin indeed to rely on. An sooident

niiin to do? Probably his comrades nro
willing lo help us far as their menus
will permit but lhe best they cun do is
very little,    All   thut   he    has   before
bun is the prospect of confinement iu

constitution enables bun to get around
nfler   perhups    months  of    suffering,
when   u few   weeks   in    the   hospitul

as the rest; if they piosper,   so   much
I the better for themselves.    As the pub
lio hospital  prospers,   however,   it   is

j prosperity for it means   the improving
I of the   applinuces   for   the health and

A TWIST IN   THK CAULK
A wook or   ten days ago   a  llritish
Pacific cable   was  assured���so we all
thought.   A   dispatoh    informed  ns
thut the Imperial   Government   bnd at
last taken decisive and pruotienl action,
by agreeing to  assume their   share  of
tho cost.    Today   the   Pacific  cabin is
farther away thuu   over; in  faot,   no
ono soems to know  whore it is.    This
sudden  ohange  in  tho situation has
been  caused   by   the   surprising   nnd
quite unexpected   discovery  of an  old
agreement,     October,     188H, between
the Imperial Government and the Eastern Extension   Australasia   and China
Telegraph Co., by virtue of which the
Company is given a monopoly of cable
construction for a period of twenty-five
years.    That,   at   least,   is tbe mooning nnd   force attached    to  it at   Ottawa.    It appears that this   document
was oouimunieated   to  our Governor-
General, the  Earl   of   Aberdeen, immediately aftor it  was   executed, but
so fur no one at Ottawa has   admitted
the least   knowledge   of its  existence
until it  was  mysteriously  dragged to
light   a few days ago.     Where it bad
been concealed, how it was unearthed,
and   who   unearthed it are  mysteries
the reports   from   the  Capital  fail to
clear up.    The late  Premier, Sir Mackenzie Bowell, drew   the attention  of
the Senate to   it   the other   day,   and
that is all   the   information,   that  is
vouchsafed.     He    exprassed   surprise
aud regret, in which   ho   was  joined
hy tho Secretary of   State,   Mr.   Scott
Thompson the whole Sonate burst into
tears, metaphorically,   aud   there   the
matter rested aud rests.
There is a proviso in the agreement
to the effect that nothing contained in
it should prevent. Canada and the Australasian'colonies building a cable if
so disposed, but this was to be dono,
if done at all, within five years of the
date of the instrument. It seems most
singular that official information of a
document of so much interest to Can
ada, conveyed in the usual way
through the proper person, should
have lain all these years at Ottawa,
and nothing ever heard or said of it
until the time allowed for action had
expired. The matter certainly requires a good deal more explanation
than it has yet received. Who was
custodian of the dispatoh containing
the information ? And how comes
it that Sir Mackenzie Bowell, a Premier duriug this period of concealment,
aud who had takeu an active part in
negotiating for a cable, even visiting
Australia for tbe purpose, knew nothing of its existence, as we are bound
to believe from bis remarks the other
day? How does it come that the
presont| Premier and bis colleagues
had no knowledge of it, or if they
had, why they pretended to continue
negotiations nud allowed the country
to keep up its excitement * over the
question? Light on this very dark subject is badly needed.
What tho effect will be is not clear.
From the tone of the discussion in the
Senate, the discovery would seem to
hnve created a feeling of consternation. Mr. Mills said the more it was
considered tho graver it appeared. He
added that in a hundred years thore
had not been a more sorious attempt
made to cripple tho commercial
growth of the colonies in the interests
of a monopoly. But present Ministers
of all others should not despair. It is
provided that the agreement may be
terminated at any time by the payment of ��300,000 to the company. It
iB tho proud boast of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his colleagues that they made
the Imperial Government denounce
those German and Belgian treaties; if
tbey could do that, surely they are influential enough to break a wretched
monopoly in the hands of a telegraph
company, especially where it is crippling the commercial growth of such
important colonial possessions as
Canada nud Australia.
bo quite possible   lo   diminish   the expenditure by four millions uniiually. "
And     Sir Hiehtird   Cartwrigbt   observed :
"I sny it is a disgrace nnd a shamo
to tho Government that bus boeu entrusted with our affairs thnt they oome
down to us nml ask us for an expenditure of $88,000,000 n year for Federal purposes. Sir, the thing is utterly unjustifiable, I hnve suid before,
nud I repent it, that $88,000,000 is in
my judgment u monstrous sum for
this people to bo culled ou to provide."
Tho first instalment of tho Estimates hns been presented, giving the
expenditure for next yenr:
On consolidated fund account 141,698,808
On  cnpitnl   account     4,75K,2B2
Totul.
48,888,880
Mayor Neelands displayed good Bense
and good judgment in saying that it
would be better to let the question
of n public building go over for another year than to spend only $6,000
now for accommodation tbat would
prove inadequate in very short time.
This hand-to-mouth way of providing for tbe publio necessities is the
poorest sort of economy. If wo ennnot
afford n proper building this yoar, lot
us wait until wo can make the host
of what we have in the meantime,
But ns the cost is to be provided by
debentures, distributed over a period
of years, there is no earthly ronsou
why tho public convenience should
hnve to wait.

"The Conservatives say to us, 'if

believe that that would be a diffloult

NELSON DAILY MINER FRIDAY, MAY 5, 1899-
Former Rumors are now Confirmed,
L.ANDB.C-G.CO.GETIT
A   Circular Has   Been Issued  to
Shareholders Stating'the Facts*
-Mining ItemB.
the
A New Denver despatch to the
Spokesman-Review says: Tho following circular, under date of April 14,
bns been sent to the shareholders of
tho Londou aud British Columbia Gold
fields: "I have much pleasure in
informing you that this company
hns, in conjunction -with the New Zealand Minerals Company, Limited, entered into an arrngement for the purchase of the Enterprise mine, one of
ths most important silver mines iu
British Columbia, upon terms which
should result iu large profits to both
companies. This mino is situated on
Ten Mile Croek, in the Slocan district, and possesses tho important feature of having already au extremely
large amount of oro blocked out, nnd
consequently available |for immediate
extraction and treatment, Mr. J. I).
Kend:ill has furnished an independent
report upon the miue, aud it will
gratify you to learn that he places 'its
value at $1,000,000 or approximately
��200,000."
Pinch & Campbill of Spokane owned
the mine. This is the first positive
information that has beeu forthcoming
siuce the Enterprise (leal was made,
though it was learned some weeks ago
and was stated in The Miner that the
deal had been made. This company
also owns the Whitewater and Ymir
mines. Plants capable of trentiug 100
tons a day are erected on both these
properties, but owing to the uuusnal
severity of the weather the uecessary
wite- power has not beeu obtainable.
and tho plants have not been operated
to their full capacity until a few
days ago.
#   *   *
Tho big copper furnace at The Hall
Mines Smelter was blown out yestor-
day, and it is at present uncertain
wben it will be blown iu again,though
it is hoped that the shut dowu will
not be for long. The lead stack is --till
tioiug strong. Eight cars of lead bullion were being loaded yesterday aud
will be shipped for refinement toBal-
beck & Co., New Jersey. The official
report of the past month states that
duriug 17 days three hours of smelting
2086 tons of ore were treated, containing approximately .35 tons of copper
aud 295D0 ounces of silver.
Mr. H. E. T. Haultaiu, superintendent of the Yellowstone mine, near Salmo, is in town. He reports that there
are now between 50 and 60 men employed at the mine, and that the uew
machinery is now gotten up. It will
probably start up next Saturday.

Wardner, May 3.��� At 11 o'clock last
nigbt Major Morion of the cavalry
troops, commanding the United States
forces here, received an order to plaoe
the whole of Shoshone comity under
martial law. Tin* process abrogates
all civil courts and does away with the
writ of habeas corpus. The order
came from (ieneral Merriara at Spokane. Coupled with it was the instruction to forbid all persons to leave
thn country suspected of complicity in
the recent riots. The importance of
the order is immense. It means that
the Federal Government menus to
crush out the outrages which have
been committed here and will remniu
in command of the situation until
order is restored. The ruling whioh
forbids all suspected persons from loav-
ing tbe country is especially momentous at this time when hundreds of rioters aro trying to get away. With the
forces hero and at Mullan the two
chief outlets of the couutry will be
closed agaiust such fugitives and
even should they pass those lines they
must deal with the entire foroes of
the United States in order to tscape.
