Berlin, Sepl. IS,���At the German
Foreign oiliec General Chaffee's despatch to Washington declaring tlie
necessity of troops remaining in Pekin, have lu luted with satisfaction. Speaking with reference to the
statements that attribute to Germany's ambitious schemes on the
Yang Tse Kiang. a foreign ollice ollicial said: "Such Statements are absurd as Germany has only landed Mill
men. whereas Great Britain and
France bus each landed thousands.
Germany's action there is wholly precautionary for the protection of the
lives and property of Germans,"
Field Marshall Count Von Waldei-
sce after his arrival at Shanghai will
not remain there, ns some of the German papers have stated, but will proceed Immediately' to the Province of
Chi Li. As an additional reason why
Germany cannot withdraw from Pekin, it is pointed out that .'I,(inn unlive Christians have been rescued from
Ihe Pei Tang Cathedral, and if now
abandoned they would Inevitably be
massacred. The correspondent of the
Associated Press learned that Germany
will not send additional troops to
China unless the position Bhould
change materially. Heavy losses
would be replaced from home. The
present measures apparently justifying the belief that further increases in
China as intended are otlicially explained to be purely cautionary. Private despatches received here say that
the international forces attacked the
Chinese fortifications at Pei Tang
north of Taku and that the losses
were considerable.

BOUGHT BY
EASTERNER
Yellow Jacket Group Taken
Over by Louis
Will.
IS   IN    NELSON   DISTRICT
Stamp  Mill  and   Tramway
to  Be  Built  at
Once.
A deal has just been completed
Whereby Louis Will, a very wealthy
capitalist of Syracuse. N.Y., has purchased the Yellow Jacket group of
mines in the Nelsou district. The
purchase price for tlic group of four
claims was 805,000.
Aside from the expense of purchasing the group thc new owner hns
plans on foot for its Improvement at
the expense of between |30,000 and
$..<).(l(lii, in thc way of a new mill, a
tramway two and a half miles long
and an electric plant by which to
operate the mines.
T. .lames, a well known mining expert from Colorado, acted as agent for
Mr. Will and has already been up-
pointed manager of tho new properties and wil! begin in a couple of days
to push the work. The lirst payment
of 110,000 for the properties was
made last Tuesday by Mr. James.
The four claims which comprise the
Yellow Jttcket group arc the Yellow-
Jacket. Maud S., Standard and Touch
Me Not. The properties arc located
iu what is known as the Nelson district, formerly Trail Creek district,
at the head of Champion Creelc. It is
practically a new district with the ore
showing a very striking resemblance
to that of thc great Ymir mines.
The Etner brothers and the Croniie
liiolhers, namely, C, 11. Etner, John
Etner, John Cromie and David Croniie. all of Spokane, were the former
owners of thc properties, having also
been the original locators. All four
of the men live in Spokane and arc
well known. Thc bond of 105,000 was
taken by T. James and the properties
afterwards turned over to Louis Will
of Syracuse, N. Y. Mr. Will has already taken 'complete control of the
properties, and, as stated, has made
Mr. James manager.
Mr. .James has already ordered a
bistaiup mill for the properly at a
cost of about $(',,(111(1 complete, This
machinery ia now on the way and
will be set up and worked before the
snow flies. It is the Intention to add
30 more stamps in the near future and
work the minus to their fullest capacity
A tramway of two and a half miles
in length from thc top of the mountain to the Columbia River is also to
be built, for which preparations nre
now being made. This, il is claimed, will give excellent facilities for
the handling of the ore.
lu speaking of the purchase just
made Mr. James said :
"We have made the purchase and
will lose no time in starting operations. The examination which I have
been making of thi' properties since
last May has proved satisfactory In
every particular, and I claim wc will
have a dividend payer from the first
drop of the stamps. The ore is free
mill.ng with three per cent, concentrates. We intend to confine most of
our operations this winter to the
Maud S. and the Yellow Jacket, hut
do uot intend to neglect the others by
any means."
It is claimed by the new owners
that they already have 8,000 tons of
free milling ore blocked out assaying
|20 a ton. During tlie four years this
property has been known,having been
located in I860, it has never been Incorporated, the original owners doing
all the work, which consists mostly of
shalfts and drifts with some tunnel
work. The majority of the work has
been done on thu Maud H., wilh Ihe
Yellow Jacket close second, (in tbe
latter claim iwo veins are iu plain
sight, measuring Is inches and assaying  175   to   the   ton.    Each  of  these
veins    has   been     traced     the   entire
length of the claim.
Since last May .Mr. .lames has been
operating the work on the properties
for tlie new owner merely as a test of
their character. The work done showed tlie claims all in a splendid light
and to the complete satisfaction of
Mr. Will, who did not hesitate to
make the purchase, lie having seen
thu claims in person about three
weeks ago.

Two Kaslo Men Find Themselves  In  Serious
Trouble.
GARLYLE  &  SUTHERLAND
Attempted  to  Garry Away
Books of Lodestar Mining Go.
(SPECIAL TO THH MINER.)
Kaslo, li. ('., Sept. 1:.'.���Magistrate
Carney presided this morning- to hear
the charge against J. I). Curlyle and
A. (). Sutherland, Tbey are not accused of stealing thc Lode Star Company's account books but only with
intent to steal. Whealler and Martin
appeared for the defence, and with
tlle consent of the prosecuting counsel, Mayor McAnn. the case was remanded till Friday and the accused
were let out on bail of $1,500 each.
Waterford, (int..Sept. 1?.���The Liberals   of   East     Lanililon    have   again
nominated .lobn Fraser, M. P.. as
their candidate for Ihe House of Commons ai the general elections,
Kaslo, Sept. PL ��� It is a sorry report
that the directors of the Lode Star
Gold Mining & Development Company
will have to place before their English shareholders this year. Thu
season is practically over in tlie Lardo
and what has the company to show
for it? l.itt.c or nothing. Its claims
have hardly been worked this year and
its steamer Marion has W'cn tied up
here instead of seeking charters on
Kootenay Lake. And now the affairs
of thc company are to be dragged
through the law courts for J. It. Csr-
lyle, who claims to be general manager, luiH to answer a Charge of intent
to steal the company's ledger, cash
book and journal. Arrested on the
same charge is A. O. Sutherland, one
of the best known citizens of Kaslo.
It can, of course, at once be said that
the two gentlemen had no criminal
intentions when they attempted to
take the account books. Indeed they
felt that they were acting quite rightly Imt, proceeding without duo
thought, they have placed    themselves
in an unpleasant position.
To explain the ease fully it is necessary to mention that up to a short
time ago S. S. Connauton was manager of the company and it is said thut
he is today managing director. Ho
and J. I). Curlyle did not love each
othe like brothers. Mr.Connauton left
for Vancouver lust week and he placed
the affairs of the company in the
bands of C, W. McAnn, the company's
lawyer. Curlyle cabled to Liverpool,
England, the head oflice of the company, saying that Connauton had left
and he received back a wire from his
brother, the president of the company
appointing him managing director.
But Mr. McAnn suys that the company's by-laws provide that the appointment of manager lies with tho
directors and the directors are Mr.
Blyth, ,1. Conruyt of this town, and
S. S. Connauton himself, so that only
Mr. Blyth appointed his brother .1.
I). Carlyle-Blyth, (Mr. Curlyle dropped the Blyth when he came here some
time since).
Acting on the telegram Mr. Curlyle
took possession of the steamer Marion
despite the opposition of Mayor McAnn. This was on Friday. Yesterday he announced his intention of
getting into the otlice here and obtaining the books. But instead of doing the deed in broad daylight he
waited till the town was asleep last
night, when, accompanied by Mr.
Sutherland, he, it is alleged, entered
the ollice and attempted to take the
hooks it. is reported. The chief of police seeing them in the oflice asked
them what they were doing and reported the matter. The arrests followed.

THE    LEAD   INDUSTRY,
The nation prospers that manufactures for itself, was the sentiment
which pervaded the speeches at the
banquet given by the Manufacturers'
Association at Toronto u short time
ago, Two prominent Liberal politicians were among the speukerB, Premier
Boss of Ontario,   ami  Mr. Paterson,
Minister of Customs, both of whom
were as much imbued .villi the sentiment as were those others who are less
politicians thun business men. Speaking of the growth of Canadian manufactures, Mr. Paterson said that
twenty years ago our exports were
three millions; in tbe next five years
they doubled, then trebled, until lust
year they had increased to eighteen
millions. This was u great advance,
and while it was going on it was natural that trade generally should show
a gratifying increase. Being a Liberal politician. Mr. Paterson did not
point out that it was just about
twenty years ugo a Conservative Qovernment Introduced the National Policy of protection to native industries,
nor deduce from the fact, as is obvious
to the dullest mind, that the increase
of our manufactures began with it
and went on flourishing as it grew
older. In effect, however, he admitted
that the manufacturing prosperity of
tbe country has been due to thc protection afforded it by the National Policy.
It is a pity when this is so evident
nnd so generally recognized, that the
party and Government of which Mr.
Paterson is so 'distinguished an ornament have not endeavored to the extent of their opportunities to encourage still further the development of
our native industries. Within the
past four years, during whieh they
have been in power, it has become
pluin to every observer thut the lead
industry of British Columbia has
languished because of unfair conditions whieli might easily be removed
by legislation. Lead products have
been admitted from other countries
under such low duties that the lead
miners of the Province were at once
put at a   hopeless   disadvantage,   nnd
In consequence the Immense deposits
of that mineral have scarcely been
touched and a source of great national
wealth remains undeveloped.
A year ago thc Associated Hoards of
Trade of Eastern British Columbia
requoSted the Federal   Government   to
raise the duties on   lead products and
thus give the industry a chance.    Thc
nation that manufactures for itself is
the   prosperous   nation.    That   is   ad-
mittcd by Liberals us well as Conservatives, and Mr. Paterson the oilier
night gave Sgures to demonstrate  its
truth ill tlic case of Canada. But the
request of the Associated Boards of
Trade was nevertheless Ignored; the
duties   have   not   been increased, and
the Industry still languishes, This is
not even acting up to the light to
which    the   Liberals  themselves,   in
their serious moments of business,
confess.    Other   industries   have   been
encouraged, with the result thai iu
twenty years our export of manufactures has increased sis fold, If similar encouragement were given tn the
lead Industry, the mines nf the Mo-
can today would be the scenes uf an
activity that   would speedily make it-
self fell, to the advantage of every in
teres! in the community, It would
seem tbat to tfet the full benefit of the]
National Policy ull the time we slu
have to go back to the party who r,
the authors of It.
It appears that those residents of
Nelson who are without electric light
must continue to do without it until
Mr. B. C. Biblet returns from Spokane and reports upon the feasibility
of repairing the old dam. No one
seeniH to know when Mr. Kiblet will
return. It might be a good idea to
learn from Mr. Biblet whether be in
tends to stay away for a few months
or only for a few days. Mr. Riblet
is not to blame for thc delay; the
blame attaches to the Council.
Never was a September day brighter
and clearer than today In Nelson
Lord and Lady Minto will know what
Nelson weather is and will envy us
when they reach their Ontario   home.
If you haven't done it yet. and you
huve a boat, hustle right, down to the
water front and decorate it for to
night. A few Chinese lanterns will
do. Lord and Lady Minto must leave
in a nlaze of glory.
This is from Thc Vancouver World
.1. II Senlker, of this city, while in
Ottawa last week, was interviewed
concerning the political situation in
the west. Mr. Senkler stated thut
the Liberals are sure to retain the
seats in Vancouver, New Westminster
ami Ivoaotenuy, now held by the Government. Nanaimo is vacant, but
was represented by a Liberal and will
bet so again surely. As to Victoria
for which Messrs. Earle and Prior
now sit, there is a movement to get
Mr. linstock to run as a Government
candidate, and Mr. Senkler predicts
that he will accept and will with his
running mate carry tbe constituency
for thc Government. Mr. Senkler also
says that if Sir C. II. Tupper bad
attempted to run as a candidate in
Vancouver he would have been over
Whelming defeated. The people o:
that city utterly condemn him for his
Yukon charges and his attack on such
men us Major Walsh, Colonel Steele.

the reasons for the present wholesale

Ami yel this project is worth worldwide, to say um hi in-of local, attention, for it is one of the btggost pieces

KIHTll   MILLER  CONCERT.
Whal a Const Paper Says of the En-
tertluiimcnt.
The Victoria Colonist, has the following in regard to the Edith .1. Miller Concert Conipany, which will appear in Nelson soon :
The small but thoroughly appreciative   audience   which    assembled  at
Institute Hull yesterday eveniug on
the occasion of the concert given by
the Edith .1. Miller oompany left the
building thoroughly disgusted with
Victorians for having failed to turn
out in greater numbers to hear what
wuh in every sense a decided musical
treat.
" Tunc after time have a few music
lovers assembled in this city at different places of entertainment and felt.
humiliated at the regrettable lack
of appreciation shown by the publio
when really meritorious performers
came to the city. Lust evening was
no exception to the rule. A few score
of people and numerous rows of empty beuohes greeted Miss Miller ami
her excellent company at Institute
Hall.
Miss Miller is an artiste of rare
alblity. Her voice is rich in quality,
of great warmth and beauty of tone.
Since tlie visit of Mdle. Trebelli, Miss
Miller is hy long odds the hest contralto singer heard here for many
years, ami is certainly a most aeooin-
pished vocalist. Her expression is
earnest, but free from exaggeration,
anil therefore satisfying and effective,
Miss Miller was applauded and recalled during the evening with spontaneous enthusiasm,
Mr. Robert C. Campbell, tlie tenor's
mimhers were surprisingly well snug.
His voice possesses that beautiful
quality peculiarly adapted to sympathetic music.
Mr. Stanley Adams, the baritone,
has a voice of tine, rich tone anil good
Compass, liis style evidences Ihe
best of training combined with good
taste.
Miss dean Forsyth.the aecoinpnnistc
with the Miller company, is certainly
one of the Lest iu Canada. Being a
vocalist herself, she is able to appreciate and interpret the aim of the
composer and give the singer the proper support at the proper time.
Pan Points
Tin Pans arc not all
alike. There's thc difference in the tin, in the
ironing, and in the mak-
ing. All the points that
go to make the difference
between good and bad
quality are embodied in
tin pans.
We Have Tin Pans of
Every Kind and Size
made from extra heavy
stock, and warranted to
wear well. All our Hardware is equally meritorious.

CIVIL SERVICE IOXAMS.
Those For Eastern B.C. Will Probably
He Held in Nelson.
The Dominion (Iovernment is con

Nelson on tbe list of civil service ex
animation points. The secretary of
the Civil Service Department at Ottawa, William Foran, i.s communicnt
ing with Mrs. M. L. Rattray, of tin
Nelson Business College, and in a let
ter to the latter it was stated that if
the required number of applicants
could be obtained from this district.
the examinations hereafter would be
held in Nelson.
There   are   several   young   men   of
Nelson and this district   who have al
ready expressed a desire to take   these
examination   aud   it   is thought   that
there will   be   little dlcfliulty in   ob
tainiug tbe required number.
Heretofore those who wished to
write have had to go to Vancouver
and at considerable expense. Owing
to this many were restrained from
taking tbe examinations but now that
they are likely to take place in Nol
son it is expected that applications
will be received from many points of
the Kootenays. Mrs. Rattray will
give instructions in all subjects and
will probably also conduct the examinations. The next examination will
take place in November, and it is
probable that, arrangements will be
made so that it can he held in Nelson
at that time.

BIG ORE BODY
AT THE LE ROI
Said  to Be of a Gross Value ol One
Hundred   Millions.
This Is the Report of an Expert Sent
From London.
News has been received In Nelson
of big ore deposits uncovered at the
Le Roi mine. The report was made
current in Kossland Saturday that
there had been located in that great
mine a body of ore with a gross value
of 8lh(i,(i(i(i,ii()(i, and a net value, after
the expenses of milling and mining
had been deducted, of 833,000,000, It
is reported that the expert Bent out by
the owners in London has made the
report af'er careful investigaion.
What were considered tlie side walls
of the ledge have been drifted through
and the body of ore located.
It is also current that the report of
the expert was cabled to London, and
as a result the stock has risen SI I and
is now Belling in American coin at
3fl'l per share. If the report is correct
the Le Hoi will be the greatest mine
in the world. Its large ore bodies
have already become known the world
over, but the deposits have never
been supposed to be so Immense as
this report makes them. Clarence
MeCuaig, who has been examining the
mine, is quoted as saying:
"Two years ago Mr. McDonald,
manager of the mine, told me that ore
existed outside of what was supposed
to be on the walls, and bis work has
not only proved that he is correct, but
has also demonstrated beyond question
that the Le Roi is one of the greatest
mines lu the world. The main shaft
is now down .00 feet and the mine is
thoroughly opened up to a depth of
BOO feet.
"On some of the levels tho ore is
being stoped for a width of 107 feet,
and faces 00 and TO feet wide are common. Outside of this enormous vein
other parallel veins have been proved
to exist, and there is no reason to
doubt that these conditions will cor
tinue the same until water level is
reached, 1,200 feet lower, and it is
quite probably that the same condi
tions will prevail to a depth of 5,000
feet. You must remember that these
estimates are not haphazard, but are
carefully compiled from what has
been actually demonstrated by the development. '*

Sandon. B. C, Sept. 12.���No. 8 tunnel of the Payne, being driven on the
McGuigan slope of the mountain, is
in 560 feet. Better headway is being
made than for some time,and it is expected that the vein will be crosscut
in about 00 days. This will give a
total vertical depth of over 000 feet
from the summit of the mountain, and
something over 300 feet froiu No. fl
level.
The Reciprocity, lying to the west
of the Puyne, is being developed in
the hope that the Payne vein may be
discovered. A crosscut to the north
i.s now In over l.r>0 feet, and will be
continued to the Bide line unless the
vein is previously encountered. The
company owning the property was organized in Spokane* in 18117 by Sidney
Norman, but a large majority of the
stock is now held here and in Montreal. J. A. Whittler is in charge of
the work, five or six men being employed on contaret.
The It. E. Lee, owned by an English syndicate.of which Lorenzo Alexander is manager, is working a force
of 10 men. At present a new vein lying about 30 feet north of the original
vein is being explored. The tunnel
shows seven or eight inches of clean
ore. Preparations are being made to
sink an incline winze, and should the
showing continue satisfactory another level will be opened up.
A good showing of clean ore has recently been discovered on thc (lalena
fraction, lying at the bead of the
(ireat Western slide and surrounded
by the Northern llclle, (lalena and
Saddle. The property is owned by
T. B. May, local manager of the Bank
of British Columbia; P. M. Hayes
and Frank Wilson. Three men are at
work on the claim, and will continue
development until driven in by snow.
At present it will be impossible to
prosecute work during the winter."
Humors are Btill prevalent as to a
resumption of work on the Washington und Slooan Boy, but so far the
owners have made no move. Unless
a start is made within 30 days it is
not probable that anything will be
done this season.
The 800-foot crosscut tunnel at thc
Antoine is nearly completed and the
contractors expect to turn it over to
the management about September 15.
It will give the mine natural drainage
and will greatly facilitate work.

ROASTS TORONTO,
Archie McNiuighton   Doesn't Like the
Treatment Received.
Toronto, Sept.  12. ��� A.  10. McNaugh-
ten, manager of the New Westminster
lacrosse team, has addressed a letter
to The Telegram, in which ho Bays:
"The Westminster team feel very
keenly, the treatment they are receiving at the bands of the Toronto Lacrosse Club,and that the latter should,
in view of the coutreous treatment
accorded them on their western tour
last fall, the expense of which, in all
its details, was borne by the Westminster people,have arranged a match
between the Capitals and Dutl'eriiis
on their own grounds for the same
day as our game witli the Teciiinselis.
at the lime knowing full well that
our fixture was made. However, we
have been shabbily used before, and
we are not a bit the worse for it. We
can get along without any assistance
from the T. L. C, (we haven't received much, financially or otherwise),
and we will till all our engagements,
too, and draw a crowd to see our
game on Saturday, as it will be the
last appearance here of the team that
has made the biggest record ever made
by a team, viz., travelling 4,000 miles
and playing six mutches in twelve
days, each one on the grounds of the
home club, the last two with a team
in a much-crippled condition from
rough usage. During the trip, we
won six and drew one match, and
scored 47 goals and had 14 scored
against us. I might also say that I
challenged the Toronto Lacrosse Club
through Captain Knowles, President
Butter and Secretary Macdonald, to
play off the draw, either on Thursday
or Friday of last week, but they absolutely refused, evidently being well
satisfied to have it a draw."

WINTERED IN  THE ARCTIC.
How the Stella Palore Fared In the
Frigid /.one.
Christianiu, Sept. 12. ���Further details regarding the arctic expedition
of the Duke of Abuzzi. on board the
Stella l'ollare, whose return was reported yesterday from Tromsoe, Norway, show that the expedition last
year through Nightingale sound and
the canal, reached as far north as
80.4, but finding no winter harbor' it
returned to Tetlitz Hay, Crown Prince
Rudolph's Land, where the Stella Po-
lare was frozen iu. The Duke of Ar-
buzzi's fingers were frostbitten on a
trial sled trip about Christmas, and
two joints were amputated, obliging
him to reamin several months in his
tent. Tho cold increased to 52 degrees eellus. On March 11 the ad
vaneo was renewed and ten men start
ed north. After ten days' inarching
three started to return to tlie ship,
which, however, they never reached.
Tlieir fate is unknown. A second
party of three men passed the eighty-
third parallel after a march of 20
days,and then returned to the ship. A
third party, led by Capt. Algin. with
two Alpine guides, and a sailor,
reached latitude 8(1,8.1, and was then
obliged to return through lack of
food. It started with six sledges and
forty-five dogs, nnd returned with
one sledge and seven dogs,having sub-
Bisted for seventeen days exclusively
on dog flesh.
On August 8 the Stella Pol are started homeward. She traversed the It.'lt-
lsh canal iu a single day, and then
drifted about for a fortnight in n severe struggle with drift ice before
rcuchipjf the yyen,6vu.
