Nelson,   British Columbia. Tuesday Evening,   November 6,  1900.
Eleventh  Year
CAMPAIGN 18 ENDED
Tomorrow the Electors of Canada Choose
Between Liberals and Conserva-
tives-The Last Doings.
There 1ms neverTieen a general election that was not the most Important
that has ever taken place���the most
Important! that is, in its ett'eit on the
happiness and prosperity of the people
and in its consequenooa generally. The
present ono is no exception. Leaders
on both sides havo so assured the
electors, in their endeavors to persuade them to look at matters with
their eyes and vote as they were told.
It is not necessary to believe that
the present one is the most lmpotant,
in order to take a deep interest in
the result. Everyone has its importance, but the country will not go to
the dogs if thu voting tomorrow does
not please the side that is doomed to
lose. There is no doubt much depending on the verdict of the majority,
but the minority will live to light
another day, and in the meantime the
affairs of the country will go on niueh
as if the other sido had won.
Not that the result will make no
difference; it would be a mistake to
eoine to that conelusion, besides to do
so would manifest an Indifference
that would not be healthy. It is perhaps just as well that the. people who
aie ranged under one political Hag
should believe with the utmost sincerity that universal ruin would follow
the success of those, who are ranged
on the opposite side. It is that feeling of sincerity that keeps all within
reasonable check, and gives a healthy
tone to the public life of the country.
The lattr may not be all that could
be desired, but it is certainly the better of the very deep earnestness with
whieh the majority of our people
take their politics.
Only one side will win tomorrow,
and each elector hopes, of course, that
his side will bo the winning one. The
Miner is not   conscious of having any
tia and New Biunswick the tide would
seem to have set in favor of the Liberals. At this distance it is impossible
to account for this singular perversity
of political judgment except it be on
the fact thut the times aro good and
the people of those Provinces are sat-
islicd to have things remain as they
are. In the other Maritime Province,
Prince Edward Island, the Oovernment are uot in favor, and Sir Louis
Davies will be a happy man if he en-
capes with his own seat. Quebec is
French Canadian, and that is enough
to insure a good majority for Laurier
'and Tarte. At the same time there is
every indication that they will not go
back as strong as they were in the
last Parliament. Ontario is the
doubtful ground. There it is all
guess. The leaders on both Bides
have been received with enthusiasm
by enormous crowds. So far us noisy
demonstrations go, both parties are
justified in looking for victory. There
have been scarcely the faintest glimmerings, however, of the sentiment of
the great silent vote, and it is the silent vote that carries the day in Ontario. One can only surmise, on the
strength of sueh probabilities as are
most apparent, nnd taking those as a
guide the conjecture would be that
Ontario will give a substantial Conservative majority. At one time it
was thought that all west of Ontario
was heistile to the Oovernment. The
campaign has dissipated this belief;
the Liberals will go back weaker in
numbers, still there will bo Liberals.
The following is ventured as a close
estimate, based on Indications to
which distance may have possibly giv-
on a twist:
Govt.  Opp.
Nova Scotia   12 8
New Brunswick     7 7
Prince Edward   Island     1 4
prejudices, but its   readers  will   have ! Quebec  40
seen that it has very strong preferences. The times hnv been good
since Sir Wilfrid Laurier came in,
and the country has prospered; and
should he win again It will go on
prospering. Hut The Miner docs not
believe that the people should tolerate
political leaders who hold their positions by means of false pretences. The
moat of ns will believe what we most
desire to believe, but the naked truth
after all is that the Liberal leaders
have broken the promises on the
strength of whieh they won in 1806,
and they are now endeavoring to get
a renewal of confidence by impudently
pretending that they did not. Tho result tomorrow depends on the extent
to which they have been successful In
this effort to hoodwink   the people.
Both sides claim a victory. That is
a part of the game, and no one regards it in the least seriously. For instance,The Miner published yesterday
an estimate sent out from Ottnwa,
claiming a decisive victory for the
Liberals. The compiler of thu estimated returns professed to have the
most reliable reports from every Province in tho Dominion. There were
reports in plenty, no   doubt, but their
reliability  is another   matter.   The
men who sent them out eared little
whether or not they were reliable, so
long as some innocent electors might
be decieved into believing them. The
estimate was prepared with the single
purpose .'if making votes for Liberal
candidates. There have been figures
published in Conservative papers that
were probably prepared with the purpose of Influencing votes for Conservative Candidates, These practices are
uot llattering to the intelligence and
manliness of the Canadian people, for
they suppose that among them there
are lnrge numbers who have no political convictions, or, having them, bold
them so lightly that they are ready to
give them up for the credit or advantage of being on tbe winning side.
They may have their convictions, hut
have not conscience enough to bold
fast to them. That is a bad element,
and they become dangerous when
numerous enough to swing the victory
from ono side to the other.
Speculating so close to the event
may   seem  hazardous,   but    there   Is
safety in remarking that lu Nova Boo-

THE DSUAL ACCIDENTS.
Toronto, Nov. 0.���The return of the
heroes yesterday was accompanied by
a number of accidents resulting chiefly
from the reckless use of fire crackers
which tilled the streets till after
midnight. None, however were of a
serious nature.
KILLED BY A FREIGHT TRAIN.
Toronto, Nov.!!.���The body of Hugh
McConlay, known as "Vorkie" found
on the Grand Trunk tracks a short
distance west of the station here yesterday. Deceased is supposed to have
been struck and run over by a freight
train, causing instant death.
and it was not until towards evening
when the infantry took the position
thut we learned of the fate of the
men. In the morning befure the brigade marched 1 sent out a burial
party, and Logan, together with
other men, were buried. The grave
is on the high ridge to tho right of
liadfontien and at the head waters of
the Crocodile River. It will be suitably marked in due course. I wish to
say that Logan was one of tho most
valuable men in my regiment. His
knowledge of this country und the intelligent way in which he went about
his work enabled me to entrust him
with uny duty. I can assure you we
all miss him   very  much   indeed.
MINING WILL BOOM.
Company Will Operate on   Texada Island���Steamer  Still Detained.
(SPECIAL, TO THE HINDU.)
Victoria, Ii. C, Nov. li.���The political campaign closes tonight with
rousing meeting by both parties in

to it.
The Chief Commissioner of Lands
and Works invites architects to submit before Saturday, December 22
next, competitive drawings, specifications and estijnates of cost for the
construction of a new tlovernment
Douse.
Texada Island is to boom in the
near future and incidentally more
business will accrue to Victoria with
the opening np of another large shipping mine near her threshold, for
the Puget Iron Co.,is to develop their
mineral properties on Texada Island
on a very large scale. .1. II. Leo, superintendent of mines for the company ou the Island, arrived yesterday.
Speaking of the prospective boom in
mining ou the Island be said that his
company hud secured the iion furnaces
at Port Townscnd and had made ar
rangeincnts to ship SO tons daily from
the company's mines on Texada to the
furnaces to be treated for the export
trade. According to the arrangements
this amount is to be shipped daily for
12 months, and then three hundred
tons daily will be taken to the furnaces. In the ordinary course of
events today would have seen the release of the detained passengers of the
City of Seattle, but more cases have
developed since the arrival at the station. Dr. Watt has decided to keep
the passengers and crew of the steam
er for some days more, bow long is to
be determined by oircumstances. Yesterday another case developed the victim being Freda Belmont, a variety
actress from White llorso.

Company, and ex-manager J. .M. Williams nn Injunction was granted yesterday by Mr. Justice Wallsem to the
company  to keep Mr. Wlliami fiom
trespassing on the Chapleau property

who lately came from Paris to inspect
the property, were refused adlllittallee
al tbe mine by the ex-inanagcr's

MONGOLIAN   VOTERS.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier made a splendid
figure at the Jubilee, and bis generous gift of a tariff preference caught
the trading fancy of the English people and dieted a considerable amount
of cheering. The lion, gentleman
came back to Canada with a Cobden
Club meal suspended to his neck, and
his admirers have ever since regarded
him as one of tho most illustrious'of
Imperialists. Hut he and his (lovernment have been making rather a sad
mess of many of our domestic nffairs;
those London cheers seem to have
brought on an aggravated attack of
swelled bead. The Dominion Franchise Act which the Conservatives had
passed was repealed. It was repealed
in a hurry and In somewhat of a temper. The Premier nnd his supporters
were more anxious to put their heels
on tbe obnoxious Act than they were
concerned for what sliould take its
place. They repealed tbe old law, and
provided that the franchise laws of
tho Provinces should be used in its
stead.
We are just discovering in British
Columbia that this simple and expeditious meth.d of legislating is attended with some most regrettable
consequences. The old Dominion law
of Conservative parentage provided
that the word "person" was not,to
mean a Mongolian. Chinese nnd Japanese, therefore, could not voto under
it, even if otherwise qualified. In the
hurry and temper of repeal this safeguard was destroyed. But this is not
all, or tho worst. Our own local law,
which for the most part regulates the
franchise for the Dominion, i�� careful
to exclude Chinese and Japanese;
their names are specilically forbidden
to be registered. The repealing law of
Sir Wilrid's (iovcrnmnt, however,
makes short work of this protection.
It provides that tho care uf the Local
Legislature to protect the lists against
tho names of Mongolians shall go for
nothing, and enacts that in spite of
their exclusion they shall bo entitled
to vote unless otherwise disqualified.
A naturalised Chinese or Japanese,
thcreore, whose name is omitted under the local law, must bo accepted as
a voter, under the new Dominion
Franchise Aet. In plainer words, the
local law excluding Mongolians is
overridden by the legislation uf our
Liboral masters at Ottawa.
Thorn aro many in this Province
who are unable to see any great menace in the immigration of a limited
number of Chinese and Japanese, but
there are few if any who desiro to
givo them tbe franchise. If they come
at all they must bo content to be
treated as aliens. It is thought to
be a liberal enough stretching of the
Britisli idea of liberty to sutler men
of those races to como ill and com-
pete with white labor, but no one has
Contemplated that thoy shall be permitted to elect our members of Parliament and thus have a potent voice in
the making uf our laws. There are
probably nut many naturalised Chinese in lliis Provinoe, but the'Japan*
osc who have taken tlie oath of allegiance   and    been   admitted   as   British
subjects  arc quite) numerous,   Their
nnmes arc not cm any 'Provincial voters' lists, but under the law passed
for us at Ottawa by a Libera] (Jovein-
ment and Parliament, those Japanese
have only to make application and
they become voters. No one but a
ruffian would tall; of shot guns to prevent this. Shot gnus do not harmonise

If our laws entitle a Chinaman or a
Jap to registration, he is to bo protected in his right to vote, the same
as any other qualified British subject.
But it is necessary to correct the mistake of those Ottawa Liberals us soon

luncheon. Hy four o'clock local time,
at tho latest, returns should be coming in, and within the next three
hours sutlicient should be known to
indicate the verdict of the people.
Unless, of course, the result should
be close, in which caso we may havo
to await the last return from tho last
poll before being relieved of anxiety.
But whatever it be, it cannot be too
strongly impressed upon tho electors
of Yale-Cariboo that their duty is still
the same, and that is to vote accord
ing to their political convictions.
Two much haB been said about
sending down a member in sympathy
with the party in power. A more
Immoral political doctrine it would
be impossible to conceive, and a more
dangerous one it would be impossible to put in practice. What it means
is that the constituency will be asked
to sell itself; to barter its principles
for some supposed material gain.
There can never be honest politics in
Canada as long ub such a monstrous
sentiment us this is suffered to pre-
vall,
The system of balloting in many of
the American States iB a cumbrous
affair, and the count is necessarily
alow. Today our neighbors are electing their President. That is a great
event among themselves, but since
they budded out into a world Power
and rubbed shoulders with other nations they have begun to realise that
the sun does nut stand still and the
people who inhabit the rest of the
earth do not gaze in entranced amazement while they go through the process. They have had it borne in on
them that in the eyeB of the rest of
the world the election of a President
and State officials is very much like
any other general election, important
only in proportion to the nation's iniluenee in the politics of the world.
Owing to the slow count, it is possible that many of us in this city will
grow weary in waiting for the returns
and go to bed without knowing
whether it is McKinley or Bryan.
The election in the United States
today and the election in Canada tomorrow have special interest for the
Slocan. If Bryan is the President,silver will go up in price; if the Conservatives should be in the majority,
the lead industry will certainly receive the attention it deserveB and
which the Liberals have so long denied it.

Nelson  Daily  Miner,  Tuesday   Evening,   November 6, 1900
RALPH WlIc-el-T'S MIRACLE.
iiv Jeannotte   Iladerinaiin Walworth,
Aiit'li'ii "A   liar Btnster," "Southern
Silhoiiutlts,"  Ktc.
She hail sent him away from her
with scorn of eyo and bitterness of
tongue. No man who hoped to have
her wear his name, she had suid,
should drag it through th. mire of tlio
niu. course.
lie had retorted with a clumsy jest
-always a poor way to placate a
proud, and angry woman.
nit was dust, my love, nasty lung-
clicking, eye-blinding dust." Mentally he prayed for the ability to
throw some of it in her beautiful
Bves, just sufficiently to blind her to
tho eiiormty of  bis having  jockeyed
��� own iiorse ut the oounty fair,
when bis   groom   bad   suddenly   gono
She bad been the handsomest, woman on the grandstand. She did not
hold racing a bad thing in Itself,
She would never have countenanced il
if she bad. She belli opinions on all
sorts of subjeots. Racing tended to the I _ad"pa8.ea'"senta
Improvement of stock. Hut that ho:
lover, the man whose name she hud
promised to take In the near future,
should come "prancing on to tbe
course" wearing bis own colors in
place of the cut-away of custom, was
more than, mortal maiden sliould bo
expected to stand amiably.
When be bud proffered that feeble
little joke about the mire being Oust,
she had drawn her horse up with a
iei-U. She must do the same with
him. He had come, as bo came every
afternoon, to ride on horseback with
her. ,    ,
Their way bad lain between hedges
of white Cherokee rose and tbe bridal
wreaths of blackberry bushes. Their
objective point was usually a plateau
of land just outside the tall grass-
covered levee that rimmed the entire
river front. From this plateau they
had together,watohed many a glorious
sunset with peace in their hearts aud
honey on their lips.
Now with darkening eyes and head
averted,she looked down upon the ,yel
low river coursing seaward with the
sluggishness of low water, lie was
pondering, not uncomfortably,barring
this small scrap between them, that
the chances of high water were slim
and that a secure year and a big crop
would enable him to gild the old nest
prettily for his mate. At that particular juncture the young lady by his
side looked very little liable to Imprisonment in any sort of cage.
She sat in her sadlc with the graceful composure of a woman who know
she looked better in habit and cap
than in flowing draperies, also with
the fearlessness of lifelong practice.
A wordless pause had followed in
the wake of that futile joke. She
turned a tragic face towards him :
"1 perceive, Kalph.'tliat you consider this a mere till. It is not. It is a
separation between you and me for all
time."
"For all time, Flo? That sounds
inexorable."
"1 feel inexorable. You nave outraged me beyond hope of forgiveness.
You, my husband that was to be,
tricked out in black and orange stripes
for all the world like an organ grinder's monkey."
"1 suppose now you could substitute
another Species of striped animal.
Kscaped convict could you, Flo? It
sounds a degree more human."
"1 leave substitutes to you. The
man who could substitute himself
for his hosier is not the man for mu."
"In ease you could, my; dear," he
said,with persistent opiinisi���,"l could
labor so hard to become a trusty and
win a shorter sentence by meritorious
behavior."
She reared her plumed cap haughily.
"Don't dear me, Ralph. It is a flip-
panl denial that I mean what 1 say.
I am thoroughly in earnest."
lie looked at her incredulously. His
sentence seemed cruelly disproportion-
ed to his offending. "Areyou in earnest saying that you and 1 part here
and now forever'."'
Shu stretched one small gannteleled
hand over her horse's head in the direction of the siuggisb river. She
was statuesque in her stern beauty,
"When the waters of that river
meet and mingle with the waters of
Willow Lake, you and 1 may come together again italph Wlllett���not before. ''
She touched her horse on bis shining Hank with the jeweled whip that
formed part of her equestrian outfit,
and before he eon Id frame an answer
was galloping homeward without
him. His lirst impulse waa to follow her; his second to canter slowly
in the opposite direction, lie did not
exactly knoiv why lie chose to turn
his horse's head towards Willow
Lake, but In a little while be found
himself pacing along its reedy hanks
disconsolate enough to have satisfied
his worst enemy.
Perhaps he wanted to satisfy himself that.the meeting or the waters
was not an aqueous Impossibility,
lle derived small comfort from him
survey of tho   chances.
The levee from whose crest he and
she bad viewed   the   sun   go down in
lurid sullenness befitting their own
unhappy mood, was the pride and
Care of the whole country. It ilclieil
the possibility of disaster even from
that most mischievous of nil streams,
the Mississippi river. Ever year saw
ItH crown more securely matted with
protecting grass llbrrs; anil its base
broadened nnd strengthened by watchful labor. Quite mile inland, fringed
with pussy willows and emerald
mosses, lay the limpid waters of Wil
low Lake, shadowing the stars by
night, dimpling at the kiss of the
faintest zephyr.
Nothing short of a miracle would
ever effect a union between those clear
wavelets and the surging waters of
the river. And, as this was not tho
age of miracles. Ralph Willet turned
him about with a heart as heavy as
lead.
One of Flo Merrltt's chief charms In
bis eyes was her Steadfastness.   As she
had been steadfast to him since the
hour of their liethrothnl���no light fu-
silade of flirtations with other men���
so would she lie steadfast, now, iu her
renunciation of htm, He might as
well give her up as lost���to him.
lle was no pulingsentimentalist, lie
rode homeward with the deep seated
resolve to patch up his broken life
linos as best he might, with so much
wrenched out of them at one blow,
lie was a man who believed in work,
ami in progress and in fun. Alack-
a-day this latter article of belief had
brought him to griuf.
No one ever heard him rail either
at Flo Merrill or at Fate? As the
head of a, large estate ho found plenty
to do, and he did it with his might.
Of neighborhood necessity he was
kept informed of Flo's movements.
Somebody told him that her health
was not so robust as it had been;
then, she had given up horseback exercise  as   too  violent;   next, she had
I gone to New York; then to Europe,
With the wide seas between them, she
I seemed doubly lost anil doubly dear.
Spring rolled around as it has a trick
of doing Irrespective of  lovers'  woes
|or wishes.    Wlllett celebrated the anniversary of  his  break with   Flo  by
riding to the identical spot where she
nee    on   him.    The
waters of the river were climbing up
I its sandy banks at great leaps and
hounds, lie had had his good year]
I and made his big crop. The wherewithal to gild the cage was his, but
there was no bird to gild it for.
Old planters confidently predicted
"big water," but they who dwelt behind the grass crowned levee laughed
delinace at the surging river. No water could break through that levee.
But as eternal vigilance is the price
of safety, some watched while others
slept. Slept in peace until there came
a night of storm   and   stress, ami���
Kalph Willet,worm out by bis day's
watching a levee guard, had fallen
into a piofound slumber, llo was
aroused by a rude bawling under bis
bedroom window, lie recognized the
voice of the night guard who bad relieved .1 i in from duty.
"Hello, Wlllett, 1 say. Levee gone.
Cut by those white devils that are
cutting timber in the wood across the
river. Mississippi river, will reach
Willow Lake by 12 o'clock today.
Ruination to the crops and the devil
to pay, generally."
Wlllett leaned from the window in
his pajamas to shout:    "What'."'
��� ��� Fact.''
The next day Ralph Willett sent a
mysterious cablegram to the city of
Nice. It was addressed to Miss Florence Merritt.    It read:
"The waters of tho lake and river
have met. Cable what steamer you
return by. Will meet you in New
York."
She held bira from her with both
hands���hands that trembled in spite
of her. She asked him a question
with lips that smiled���in spite of her.
The light ot a great gladness shone in
her eyes���iu spite of her.
"Ralph Willet did   you���did you���"
"Cut that levee? I'm not that sort
of a scoundrel." lie drew her towards
him with a profound sense of possession. "It was simply a miracle performed in my behalf.''
"Oh," she"said, nestling contentedly closer into his encircling arm.

-BOUT MEDHURST'- ARREST.
T. H. BROWN
Jeweler
178 BAKKIl STREET, NELSON.
Editor Miner:
In your issue of the 3rd inst. was an
article re the arrest of F. M. Medhurst in this city last Friday morning, that was misleading in every respect. It stated that never before in
Cranbrook "bad there been so much
excitement," and that Mr. Medhurst,
upon being taken into the street
"yelled aloud for assistance and his
lawyers." Such a statement was absolutely falso. There was no disturbance whatever, either upon the street
or at tbe station. The arrest was at
an early hour, and only tnree friends
uf Mr. Medhurst were present. There
was no "frenzied mob." no "excited
people," no "attempt to force an escape" nor any necessity for a "gallant defense" on the partofthe officei
in chinge. The arrest was made just
before the departure of the west bound
train and Mr. Medhurst was hustled
out of the town where bis alleged
crime is charged to have been committed, without a hearing,without an opportunity to see his attorneys and
without a chance to furnish bail. The
people of Oranbrook are neither hoodlums nor law breakers. They are simply a fair-minded lot of citizens who
believe in justice and fair treatment
and in case of an alleged Offense, In
proper prosecution, and not petty persecution. JUSTICE.

Fish Kiver (amp. West Kootenay,
NOT. 4,__A powefrul Nelson company
entitled the Imperial Development
Syndicate has bonded a group of
twelve free milling gold claims on
Lexington Mountain, about one mile
from Cambrone. There is every reason'to congratulate these enterprising
gentlemen on what promises to be a
recoid investment. Survey iiur is now
ill progress and supplies arc being
rushed in for winter work.
Adjoining these claims on the southeast is the the Oyster group upon
which the locators have done considerable work; this Bummer with most
satisfactory results, The finest lead
which up to now has been uncovered
on the mountain has been crosscut in
two places and gold, visible to the
naked eye, Iiiih been takeu out of both.
This lead is about ten feet wide
witll shist on the foot and slute on the
hanging wall.
Upon the Criterion which also
touches one of too Imperial Company's purchases and belongs to the
owners of the Oyster tfroup, Messrs.
Allen and Ernest, a wonderful strike
has just been made which seems to be
richer than any yet heard of. A small
fissure vein about three to four feet
in width cutting the formation at an
angle of thirty degrees literally
speckled with coarse gold has been
uncovered for about two hundred and
fifty feet but no more work has yet
been tlone on it.
The Lucky Jack, about a mile to
the southeast, a great galena showing
located last season will be worked all
winter and cabins have been built and
preparations made to that end.
,1. A. Magee is building a cabin on
the Copper Hollar and will employ a
crew of men on it right along. This
is a very promising copper prospect
and a good strike has already been
made on it.
Mr. Jackson, of Kossland, who has
been in and out of this district all
summer and has acquired several of
the best silver-lead properties in the
neighborhood is doing work on the
Wide West, Black Hear and Eclipse
groups and is employing forces of
from eight to twenty men upon   each
��� ���   ���
S. Lefebre. an old miner and pros
pector of Trail, has recently sold the
Orand Junction claim on Champion
Creek and three claims on Hall Creek
to the Ladysinith Gold Mining Co. of
Montreal. Tbe last three claims are
located in Nelsou district, the first
named in Waterloo district, about 10
miles from town. It is the intention
of the new owners to put a 111 stamp
mill on the Grand Junction, the rook
being free milling. Mr. Lefebre starts
for Montreal next month. On his return he will install the machinery and
put a large force to work.
��� ���   ���
Everything is now   in   readiness at
the Minnesota Silver Company's mill
for handling the output of the Ivan
hoe mine, says the Paystreak. The
tramway is in oporation and works
as smoothly as could be desired. The
mill has been running for the past
few days on tests whieh have proved
everything satisfactory, nnd the on
will be turned in today or tomorrow.
When everything is running the mill
will handle 150 tons a day. Work on
the switch is progressing slowly, hut
should be completed within two
weeks, when 0. I'. R. cars will be
loaded right out  of the oro bins.
I'p at the mine new buildings are
being constructed to replace those
burned six weeks ago. There will ho
a bunk house 100 feet long with accommodation for 138 men. The din-
ing room and cook house, which will
occupy another large Imililin , will
bo one of the finest mine camp hotels in the Slocan,and the office building and foreman's quarters will lie
oomplete in every particular. When
these improvements are completed a
full force will be put on   at the mine.
Within the next Ull days the Minnesota Silver Company will he crowding
the record of the St. Eugene and
North Star in East Kootenay or any
of the banner shippers of the Hohs-
laud camp in value of output,

Peterborough,   B. C, Nov,   I.���The
Silver Kelt Mining Co. Ltd.. of Peter
borough. B.C., will develop tho Silver
licit. Silver Celt Fraction and Car
Inmate and Golden Rod claims, known
as the Silver Hell group of mines, situate on Spring Creek, on a large seal"
throughout the winter under the personal direction of A. M. Syinoiis. Mr.
A. M. Keep the manager of the Silver
licit Mining Company expects to commence shipping within four months
from date. The Government has almost completed a wagon road to the
month of spring Creek, and a sleigh
road will he completed from there to
Paradise Basin within a week, The
Silver Belt group is considered one of
the finest showings in the Kootenay
���sonntry, and it is only u  Question of
time when it will rank with the foremost shipping propositions.
Capt. F. V. Armstrong has secured
a eontract.from R. R. Bruce, C. E.. of
I'cterboomgh, manager of the Paradise group of mines,Spring Creek, Par-
idise lliisin, to pack out 11,000 tons
>f ore to Peterborough Landing,
thence via steamboat on Columbia
Kiver to Golden. The Paradise group
consists of three claims, viz., Paradise, Royal Stag, Comstock. Fred
Breneomian, an old reliable practical
mining man is in charge of the de-
lelopmont work. This group iB considered one of the big.thlngs throughout the Province.
Situated adjoining' the Paradise
mine is the Shamrock claim. Many
practical men believe that the Sham-
rook will prove with development
work to be even as promising a mine
as the Paradise, if not better. It is
understood that a Montreal capitalist
purchased a three-fourths interest in
the Shamrock during the past three
months. Since the survey of the Paradise group of mines and Shamrock,
thu Shamrock takes in 111) feet additional ground from the Paradise mine.
The Paraidse Fraction claim adjoins
the Shamrock and Paradise group of
mines. In fact it is doubtful whether
a more promising section of country
can he found in the Province than
what is known as the Paradise Ilasin
at headwaters of Spring Creek, tributary of Toby Creek.
The Iron Cap mine situated on McDonald Creek, tributary of Horse Thief
Creek, is being developed on a large
scale by the McDonald Mines, Ltd.,
otlice at Peterborough, B.C. This company is represented by Messrs. Star-
bird and Collett two very energetic
practical mining men. In fact Messrs,
Starbird and Collett deserve great
credit for their perseverance and faith
in the Windermere district. Iron Cap
is 'one of the Red Line group of
claims.
The Peterborough sawmill is running full blast in order to keep up
with the demand for lumber.
All the shipping properties in the
Windermere district will ship all ore
via Peterborough during the coming
season.
Geo. Goldio, recorder at "Windermere, hns been transferred to Fort
Steele and it is understood will take
over the Kimberley recording otlice in
the spring.
John Hulman.of Thunder Hill, East
Kootenay, has been appointed mining
recorder at Windermere, B. C. Mr,
Kulman is an old timer in the Windermere district and is well thought of
and will undoubtedly prove a good
reliable recorder.

HIS VIEW OF KITCHENER,
What   Alfred   G.    Hales, the   London
War Correspondent, Says.
^ Mr. Alfred G. Males, the war correspondent of the Daily News, who has
returned to London, has, in an interview with a representative of that paper, given the following Impressions
of Lord Kitchener:
'I have seen men," he said, "go
into Kitchener's quarters swaggering
and laughing, nnd come out looking
like plucked birds."
"All the line feathers gone'.'"
"My word I've asked more than
once what happened. 'Well,' came
the answer, 'one look is enough for
me.    It makes your blood run cold.'
"And do you think that such a man
is likely to inspire confidence? Lord
Roberts is loved by his army."
"A man might disobey Lord Roberts, but Kitchener 1	
"Well, did Kitchener come into
touch with these men'.'"
"Yes; and when he did their jaw
fell, 1 can promise you. Why, he told
some of them one day he wondered
they didn't bring ladies' maids to curl
their hair for them, lie went down
to Cape Town and found dozens of
them having a good time ill a swell
hotel there, full of rank and fashion.
'Well, gentlemen, what are you doing here'." 'On leave, my lord, ami
this is the���haw���only good   hotel   in
Africa���haw���haw '���   'On    leave,
eh?'���'Yes, my lord. There's nothing
���haw���haw���doing just now.'���'Oh,
well, gentlemen, you'll cither take
tho next train back to the front���
there's one in two hours. I believe���
or���the next boat to England.'
"You can always spot one of Kitchener's men. They mind their business, and don't care for anything else.
They are soldiers, and their duty is to
light and to win. II not, to die. 1
believe that this war would have been
over mouths since if Kitchener had
been in command."
"Good Heavens! surely Lord Roberts has done splendidly'."'
"A magnificent soldier, but I think
Kitchener would have done the work
quioker."
"How's that?"
"Those brilliant flanking movements are slow. Kitchener believes
in frontal attacks."
"But what slaughter:"
""Well, there wouldn't have been
thousands of deaths from enteric,anyway. "
"And Lord Kitchener ?"
"I think he is another Wellington
Terrible���a man without bowels���
without a friend���hated by many���
feared by all���but a man who will
put tilings through���a man who believes that it is a soldier's work to
tight and win���or die. Now the sight
of transports crawling, lumbering
along used to make my blood boil.
Kitchener would have cut the baggage down by half. Half of the wagons laden with ollieers' luxuries���
Tommy never got any. lie did cut
them down when he had the chance,
Mind, these are no hasty conclusions. I was there for nine months,
and I didn't go about with my eyes
shut He's a fine judge of men. too.
Do you think' he'd let his officers go
loafing about cities and towns? No
fear."
