Eleventh Year
ELECTION
CAMPAIGN
It is  Growing  Very Warm
Throughout Great
Britain.
MANY PERSONAL ATTACKS
Captain Lampton Assisted In
His Fight Against the
Government.
London, Sept. 30.���One hundred and
sixty-seven eonstituenoies, returning
ono-fourth ot the membership of the
House of Commons, made their nominations toiler. I'p to one o'clock this
afternoon 58 members had been elected,unopposed,comprising 43 Conservatives, eight Unionists, five Liberals
and i��" Nationalists.
Among the Interesting personalities
on the Government side returned today without opposition were Mr. Jos.
Chamberlain, the .Secretary of Stale
for the Colonies, (West Birmingham);
Mr, lleo. Wyndham, the Parliamentary Secretary for the War Olliee,
(Dover); Mr. ('has. T. Ritchie, the
President of the Hoard of Trade,
(Croyden); Sir John. 0. Colomba,
(Yarmouth); Mr. Jesse Codings, under Secretary for the Home Department. (Bordesley division of Binning-
liuiin; sir Francois Sharp-Powell,

Financial Secretary of the War Office,

Charles B, 11. Vincent, the founder of
the I'nited Empire Trade League,
(Central Bbeffield): Mr. John llennl-
ker lieaton, (Canterbury); Mr. ('has.
Bailby Stuart-Wnrtley, formerly Secretary of State for the Hume Department, illiillam Division of Shellield);
and Sir Edward Albert Sasson
(llythcl.    The five   Liberals returned
unopposed include Mr. Wra. Court-
(July, Speaker of the House of Commons (Carlyle); and sir Hartley Fowler, former under Secretary of State
for the Home Department and Secretary of India, (East Wolverhampton),
lu all 68 candidates were returned iin-
opposed, The Ministerialists aggregate 58, Liberals live,   and   Nationals

Immorally before Ritualists on the

The Queen now has a long list of
names submitted to her as those of
persons entitled to honors for services
In South Africa, The identity of
those who figure in the list is already
causing keen speculation iu certain
olrclcs. The shower of C. B. S., (Companion of the Bath), 0. M. (i.'s,
(Companion of St. Michaels and St,
George), etc., will be   unprecedented.
It is rumored that Lord Wolsey
will be made earl and appointed Viceroy of Ireland, to succeed Earl Cado-
Han, whose resignation seems impending. What Lord Roberts will get still
remains a secret, but Lord Kitchener,
it is said, if ho remains in South Africa, will be given the loeal rank of
full general, so that he can be second
in command to (ieneral Buller after
Lord Roberts leaves.
London, Sept. 89.���The election
campaign Is developing unexpected
heat, chiefly due to the vigorous
efforts of the Liberals to show a united front. Personalities are figuring
Biore than usual in the contests. Mr.
Joseph Chamberlain, tbe Secretary of
State fur the Colonies, by reason of
the aggressive tone of all his Bpeeches.
is tlie object of many bitter personal
attacks. Sonic of his enemies have
declared him to ho politically dishonest and even go further   than that.
Am,her   war      character,     Captain
Lampton, of the British cruiser Powerful, has   heen   assisted in  his   light
against the Government by getting a
letter from Lord Bimebery. He is
also backed by all tlie aristocratic Interests of (he Durham family Church
associations lire figuring actively In
the campaign. The Imperial Protest
am federation hns received promises
'rum thirty-two candidates to oppose
to the utmost any movement tending
In bring England   and the Vatican In
closer touch or towards "Romanising" the established church. On the
other hand, the hading Roman Catholic papers almost unanimously support tbe Conservatives believing that
If they are returned with a solid majority they will achieve tbe pioject of
giving Ireland a Catholic I'nlverslty
nnd iu other ways sec that the educational interests of Catholics In England do not suffer.
The annual church congress, in progress at Newcastle, was attended by
the Archbishop of Canterbury and
Dearly all the other Episcopal and
nigh dlgnntiirics, Including several
American anil Canadian clergymen.
Though held lu Hie midst of the election excitement, politics were carc-
fnlly avoided, and the proceedings
were marked by unexpected harmony.
The  spectacle   ul   Mr. Johu   Kenslt,
HOME RULE IS DEAD.
Not One of the Issues in the Present
Campaign.
London, Sept. 21).���A curious feature,
comparing the present election with
those bitter campaigns of 1802 nnd
18115, is the absence of home rule from
the hustings. Kxeept in Ireland, it
is a dead issue, or at least a thoroughly suspended one. The rights
and wrongs of ritualists are now much
more frequently discussed that the
once famous cry which sent Gladstone into retirement and put Mr.
Chamberlain on the Uovernmcnt
benches.
Lord Roaeberry'S attitude Is an endless source of expectation. So far the
ex-premier has given no sign that he
will take an active public part in the
elections, but that his friends are
working hard in his behalf is evident
from tlie statement of R. W. Perks,
Ml'., oue of the leading imperialists,
who gives the fullowing incomplete
list of candidates who have expressed
themselves in favor of Lord Rosebery's
polioy and of the return of his lordship to the leadership of the party:
Captain Lauibton, Sir C. Furness,
Charles Hose, Mr. Raphael, Sir George
Newnes, L. Ilarinsworth, Mr. Tenant,
linn. T. A. llrassey, Sir A. Hayter,
Mr. Adeaue, Mr. Markham, Mr. Wak-
erly, Sir Edward Beed, 11. I'. Fuller,
Handel Booth, Mr. Harlam, Mr.
Mansfield, Freeman Thomas, Mr.
Suape. Hon.Arthur Brand, Mr. Caine,
Mr. Benton, Mr. Ainsworth, E. N.
Hidden, Clifford Cory, Russell Rea,
Sir J. Jardlne, Sir T. Coates and N.
Ilelme.
There are other candidates not included in this list who have also intimated their approval of the policy of
the liberal councils. The old Parliament contained many who are in accord with the objects and views of the
new party, such as Sir 11. Fowler,
Sir Edward Grey, Mr. Asqulth, Lord
F. Fltzmauiicc, M. Huldune, Q. C.,;
W. 8. Robson, O,. C. ; Sir Walter F'os-
ter; L. Walton, Q. C.; Mr. McArthur;
Mr. Moulton, (J,. C. ; Sir J. LeSe, Q.

rell,   Mr. Uedderwick, (j. C, and Dr.
Parquharson,
ConsernvtiveB will contest all the
constituencies in London, of which
there are Ml, returning no members.
At present Liberal candidates have
been selected for only 3d. The Liberal contingent in tbe dying Parliament
from London number only nine.
E. (>. Hcmmcrdc, who won the diamond sculls at Henley, Is to be the
Liberal candidate for Oxford at tbe
general election. An Interesting candidate is that of J. E. Lawton, whom
tho North Salford Liberals are endeavoring to send to the House of Commons in opposition to Mr. l'latt-ilig-
glns. M. P. Mr. Lawton took the
leading part in the formation of the
English Sewing Cotton Company and
has been a leading member ever since.
Sir (llcnn Coates is also being run for
West Henfrow in the Liberal interest.

Cheng Yen lluan, who, as announced in the dispatches, was one of the
officials beheaded by the Empress Dowager for his pro-foreign leaning, is
remembered by Victorians as the dig-
natary who strcnously objected to being bathed at the quarantine station,
lluan was on his way to London to
attend Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee,
lie crossed the Paeilic on one of
the Empresses, and arriving at quarantine, was ordered to undergo the usual bathing treatment accorded to all
the passengers. He objected and
there was considerable correspondence
between the Chinese Ambassador aud
Lord Salisbury and the Federal Government before lluan could be induced to take bis bath. This it might be
though, would help to make him anti-
foreign, butJJ probably tho treatment
he received in London offset this and
hence his untimely death.

The mining industry uf this district
is certainly booming at tbe present
time. In addition to the large number of deals that have already been
put through, inquiries for good prop-
erties ure coming tn every day. Communications lire being received from
capitalists of Eastern Canada, nnd
eastern United States and more especially is il tbe ease in the latter, The
inquiries are asking for good properties regardless of the price. Judging
from the present state of affairs, only
a short time will .be required to make

Whitewater mine, is showing up exceedingly well. Last month tbe shipments were 4(1 cars, while this month
they will lie much larger. Tbe company with which I am connected is
now operating upon the Sunset and
Wellington groups.which are situated
near the .Whitewater property. We
have been getting Into shape the old
working ou the Wellington claim and
are now ready for stuping. The lead
of the Sunset, which is evidently the
same one as in the Whitewater, has
been ful lowed a considerable distance.
The vein is HI feet wide, with well
defined walls. The pay streak is
somewhat smaller but has in places
been found to be 12 feet wide. Hood
assays have been obtainetd from the
ore. The highest we ever obtained
was 330 ounces of silver, 7n per cent,
lead and also good values in  copper.11

It is learned mi good authority that
i.iKKi.iioo shares uf ihe Rossland Giant
have been bonded by Snn Francisco
capitalists for (100,000. The bond goes
into effect October 1. aud is for two
years. In that time the bondholders,
according to the agreement,must sink
a new working shaft 70(1 feet, and do
1,(111(1 feet of tunneling and I.(Kid feet
of diamond drilling. The'old owners
are tu receive 5B per cent of the net
proceeds from ore shipped during the
two years and the other 48 per rent,

A controlling interest in the mine
was recently secured by Philadelphia
and Michigan capitalists, represented
by G. W. Armstrong, a former Michigan man. The ortgual majority huld-
ers were A. D. Coplon and A. D. Bent-
ley. The lirst sale was made on a basis of seven cents per share and the
recent one on a basis of lo cents.
Since work was resinned bj the other
new owners a few months ago several
important developments have been
reported, largely Increasing its known
value. The mine has made one or two
small shipments, but most of the
work has been development, Tho
present deal insures the thorough exploitation of tho property, which is
on Bed Mountain, Rossland, about
west of the War Eagle, aud Separated
from it by the No, 1 and Novelty. It
was located iu 1800, and was one of
the lirst claims staked in  the district.
The basis uf division of the 1,000,-
oou shares among the present stockholders could not be learned, hut the
deal is supposed to be between the
former purchasers and the Cnliforn-
lans, and not to involve a general pro
rata sale. The names of the new purchasers are kept a secret.

TO TAX ALL
TRAVELLERS
How the New Peddlers' By-
Law Is  Now to Be
Enforced.
MANY COMPLAINTS HEARD
Hotel Men Not Pleased With
the Mayor's Reading
of It.
Many of the business men of the
City.more particularly the hotel men.
are complaining uf tlie manner in
which the City intends to enforce the
by-law in regard tu peddlers. There
is. and should be. no complaint of the
City's intention to keep tlie ordinary
jewelry peddler, the bankrupt stock
man. etc.. from doing business here,
but hotel men and others complain of
any attempt to prevent tlie ordinary
commercial traveller from doing business without lirst securing a wholesale lloense. The lirst intimation they
had that such a move was to be made
was from the following editorial published in The Tribune on Thursday:
"Nelson merchants and manufacturers intend to strictly enforce all laws
against transient traders and those
who lake orders to be filled at other
cities.    Drummers  for  outside  sugar
houses will be compelled to sell lo
wholesale dealers, just as drummers
for wholesale liquor booses are compelled to do. No drummer for a whole
sale liquor house.outside thisj'rovinco
can sell liquor lo retail dealers without lirst taking out a wholesale bouse
dcalei 'a License,'
According to this-and it is from tin'
pen of Mayor Houston, and should
be authentic retail cigar men bore,
Bueh as Thurman or Crow & Morris.
must purchase their entire stock- from
local houses, and not buy. as they
have been in Hie past, from travellers
who make their regular trips to Nelson several times a year, and spend at
the hotels and elsewhere several hundred dollars during a season. Ami it
will be Ihe same with the dry goods
drummer. Before doing any business
wilh Fred Irvine & Co.. Kerr & Co.,
Martin O'Reilly .< Co.. or any other
drygoods house, he must go to the City
hall and secure a wholesale license.
Tbi' traveller who sells shoes.jewelry,
hardware, or any other articles, must
also secure his license. In fact, every
traveller who comes to Nelson to "take
orders to be tilled at other cities," according to Mayor Houston, must lirst
secure a license nt n cost of 8'JO. This
includes every traveller who visits this
City.    The result of such n policy, the
hotel men say, will be to keep out of
Nelson a large number of the drummers who now make regular trips
here.thereby diminishing the business
of the hotel keepers.
It may be," said one hotel man to
The Minor,     that   the aldermen   will
have something to  say   about   tho
mannei in whieh the bylaw shall be
enforced, and that they will nut allow
the Mayor to dictate to them and to
the citizens in general."

ANOTHER REPUTATION GONE.
There are two Liberal candidates in
the Nanaimo constituency, lately represented by the erratic and much dis-
appointed Mr. Wclnnes. Mr. Ralph
.Smith is one of them, lie is already
a member of the Legislature, but bis
ambition calls him up higher. He is
prominent in labor circles; in Hritish
Columbia, indeed, be is the acknowledged leader of that element of our
social and industrial organisation.
F'or some time ho has been flirting
with the Dominion Government, and
every little overture of political love-
making has been received with a welcome beaming with Bmtles. lle was
111 Ottawa not long ago, and before
coming away e;ot himself appointed a
member of the Commission that is to
inquire into the question of Chinese
Immigration, The position is supposed to carry a salary, and under the
law which is intended to provide for
the independence of Parliament this
fact would in the ordinary course ol
things present some difficulties in connection with his contemplated candidature. We presume, however, they
are all expected to be successfully overcome, otherwise we should not huve
heard of him in connection with the
representation of Nanaimo in the llo-
minlon House of Commons.
Mr. Italph smith Is a gentleman who
has carried the respect and confidence
of more than the class he specially
represents, ile is a man of some
weight in tho Province, and if he
were to continue to devote himself to
the industrial conditions that already
present themselves here, and which
promise to increase in their importance and urgency, be could easily cut
out for himself a most useful career.
Hut in fcroin|r vo Ottawa and mixing
himself up with the party contentions that grow so rankly at that capital, he is taking the most certain
means of spoiling himself. Ottawa is
the grave of countless labor repula
tlons. They cannot live in that
highly charged atmosphere. Every la-
bur moth that has flickered about the
poltical candle at Ottawa has ended in
becoming a party hack. This fate
has not been characteristic of the devotees of one party only, but of both.
In looking for political appointments,
and permitting himself to be used in
the game as a candidate for Xanainio,
Mr. Italph Smith shows that he is
not superior to the temptation that
has proved fatal to so many others.
He may be content with the character
of a party hack.hut it would be a sore
disappointment to those who, with
simple trust and confidence, have been
looking to him as their leader in British Columbia,
There is a curious fatality about labor lenders. Sooner or later they betray the selfish   stuff   of   which   liny
ai imposed.      Their     professions,
like those of so many others, are mere
stepping stones to their own aggrandisement, We shnll continue to believe
as lung as possible that Mr. Ralph
Smith is one of the best of the lot.bul
If the laboring class In this Province
are living in the convict ion   that they
have a  special   cause of  their own
they cannot too soon begin casting
about for another leader.
A scandalous   disregard of the   law
nnd the saaredness of  human  life   is
just now being manifested in Vancou
ver.    There Is  a   law against fust bicycle   riding   on   the   streets of   thai
city.    No attention has been   paid   to
It   since   the day   is   was passed, and
accidents of   more or less   seriousness
have been frequent in oonsequence.    A
tew   days   ago   oun     ot   those    fiends
known as scorchers ran   into a woman
on a  bicycle   and   killed   her.    There
was no arrest;   indeod. judging   from
the tone of the local press, there   was
more sympathy for Ihe   scorcher   who
bad transgressed the   law   than regret
at the death of the  woman.    The   authorities   caused  un   Investigation to
be made, but It had to  be  adjourned
because   the   principal  witness,   the
oulplrt   himself,   had   not   even   been
sum ed   to   appear,     If   there   was
ever 11 ease of manslaughter, here
was one; but SO lightly arc these
things considered In Vancouver that,
with the adjournment of the inquest,
we have probably heard the last of a
matter that should earn for the criminal transgressor of tlie law a long
term uf Imprisonment.
We have pleasure in reproducing the
following from The Tribune of this
morning. It is il line example of the
amenities as understood and practised
by .Mr. Houston: "The Miner says
the work of making Baker Street a
credit tu tlie city 'must stop at Stanley.' We ate not aware that that ex-
siilisiiliseii sheet wa.s charged with
either financing the City or directing
the expenditure uf tlie City's revenue.
We are afraid if it hail that privilege
it would have less difficulty than it
has of llnanclng its own business."
Sir Wilfrid I,aimer's Jubilee gift of
a tariff preference is nut realising all
the hopes the liritisli people entertained of it. Canada had been importing much more heavily from the
I'nited States than from Great Britain, and it was understood the preference was designed to put a stop to
such a painful anomaly. During the
lust fiscal year we Imported of dutiable goods less than 838,000,000 from
Great Britain and over 844,000,000
from the United States. Our total imports from the United States were
897,000,000,the heaviest ou record. Sir
Wilfrid has shot bis holt and got his
title,and perhaps no longer cares; but
if liis heart still swells with tbe pride
of Imperialism, he will have to consider whether that preference should
not be raised several points higher.
When in Opposition the Liberals objected to the appointment of members
of Parliament to olliee under the
Crown. It was a bad practice, they
declared, subversive of the independence of Parliament, So strong was
their objection that Mr. Mulock introduced a Bill to put a stop to the
practice In eighteen years the Conservatives made seventeen of these appointments; since the Liberals came
in four years ago they have made
fourteen. It is fail to mention this
fact as an example of Liberal insincerity or hypocrisy. Here is tbe reply
made to it by the virtuous Times of
Victoria: "Conservatives object to
Liberal members of Parliament being
appointed to offices under the Crown.
They do not believe any save Conservatives sliould be permitted to serve
their country for emolument,'1 If
The Times is as innocent as it looks,
it should have, lived in the days of
court fools.

.,���. uxperieneed by myself and a
voting lli;l" who wus working with me
';��� il,". mine ut the time."
Clarence Rottergren, n German by
blHh related to The Minneapolis Tribune tho story of one of the most miraculous escapes from being burled
'live in n mine that has evoi been
heard of, while waiting one afternoon
fur n Western bound train.
nj WiiB working in one of the cop-
,���.|. mines In the western part of Corn-
Lll England, about 10 years ago,
where I was employed as assayer. It
was inv duty to look up my own ore,
n,l |��� tlie course of this work 1 was
obliged I" visit every part of the mine
in which 1 was employed,
i.jt was during a time when there
was much excitement going on at the
mil,,, over the locating of a new vein,
whleh was said to be very rioh, yield-
in.- a large percentage of clear ore.
A number of experiments and exploits
hnil heen made In the direction where
tbe vein was supposed who, but torn
longtime it Beeemd impossible to ascertain the actual course of the strike.
������The blastings were gonorillly made
Sumlnys, when the initio was vacated,
mill there was no danger of misgiven
signals anil alarms. Tho mine had a
hiul record in the way of accidents, as
nearly a dozen miners had lost their
lives mi account of accidental explosions occasioned by misgiven signals
or carelessness on the part of tlie
blasters.
���It was agreed that thoro would be
no blasting oue Sunday, as there was
sufficient ore to last the coming week.
I decided, thercforo, to explore the
chambers, in tho direction of the suspected vein, in hopes ol' making a
lucky strike independent of any other
assistance I asked a young Cornish-
man who lived in tho vicinity of the
mine to accompany me although not
mentioning the   oujeel of my exploit.
Tin mm.hi lint lights were too weak
lu answer the purposo of my undertaking and 1 had therefore furnished
myself with a large torch, which 1
asked the boy to carry. The young
man had no objection, and after
equipping ottrsleves with the necessary tools, for tho work we proceeded
to the depths of the earth to see what
we could timl.
"The mini1 was completely deserted
when we entered ami descended the
shaft, tlie only man around being the
old engineer, who lowered the carriage for the descent. We repaired
Immediately to the plaee where 1 expected to begin work, our course leading through the main shaft to the most
interior part of the mine. There was
nol n person about the shafts, and 1
congratulated myself upon being fortunate enough to have the circumstances come niv way to such an extern.
"As soon as we had arrived at our
destination I began work. I had no
idea there was a cavity iu the vicinity
of the place where we were which was
separated from the present mine bv a
thin wali of rock. What led me to Believe tbis was the fact that about 50
years prior to this time there had been
a rich copper mine about a mile from
the present main shaft, and which
had been abandoned on account of a
heavy flow uf water which had always interfered with its operations.
"This mine, I thought, would be
located directly at this point, and it
was my intention to sound the walls
until I would satisfy myself that
there was either another mine near by
or II new vein altogether.
"I had been at work about ah hour
when we were suddenly thrown to
the ground by a terrific underground
explosion, whieh sent rocks of all
sizes Hying nml dropping about our
heads, and threatening a speedy end
to our existence for a few seconds.
The boy dropped the light in the ex-
cilenicnt leaving us in total duikncss,
crawling and scrambling about the
large masses of rockB which were lying about the ([lace.
"Having at last recovered our touch
by means of the light given by striking matches, we endeavored to make
our way buck. The more wo walked
the more difficult became our way.
The blast bad thrown up huge piles
of ruck which nearly filled our passage and in some places almost locking
us In.
When wo arrived at tho place
where the blasting had taken pinee,
my heart almost stopped. A complete
cave-in had been the result of the
shock, blocking up the whole passage,
and in this way locking us in completely, There would be no passage
made for probably three or four
weeks, and Ihe huge masses of rocks
which had losseneil from the top anil
sides seemed uh if they would never
I"' removed, 1 felt more grieved at
the fate of the young man who hail
accompanied me at my own request
and for whom I felt responsible, lie
also realized the seriousness of the
situation, but felt about ns much at
loss as to what to do ub I did.
"Suddenly the object of my search
seemed to impress me more fully than
at first. I felt convinced that' there
would he another shaft In the vicinity
and alter confessing everything to the
.voting mail, we turned back and proceeded to search for the lost mine
With mure enthusiam than at lirst.
Our work was not in vain, but I was
not the one to make the discovery,
ihe young Coriiishinan's hummer was
the lirst to bring an echo from the
inside, which told distinctly that our
Work had not heen in vain. Uven at
this point it seamed quite discouraging, as we had no blasting material
and could not make holes large
enough for us to pass through with
only our hammers and picks.
'We sat down for ii moment for
consultation when my attention was
strangely drawn to a pile of rocks
neatly raised agnint the lower part of
the wall. The structure was too well
elected to have been thrown there
accidentally, and it occurred to me
that It must have been placed there
[or some other purpose than a mere
wrap pile. | hardly dared to breathe
when wc began to remove the stone,
out my suspense was only momentary.

face with a large hole, in which the
darkness seemed almost impenetrable.
"Now 1 saw the object of the explosion. The mine had been discovered by some other person, who evidently desired to get the credit of the
strike exclusively, and with a criminal design bad decided to intercept
our Interference.
"Having removed enough of the
stones to permit us to get through we
lost no time in proceeding to explore
the excavation, which proved to be
exactly as I bad predicted,the remains
of the old mine.
"The shaft in which we entered
ended Immediately on our left, and
the only thing for us to do was to go
straight ahead. I doubted whether we
could get out by going that way, as
it led to the inner part of the mine,
instead of leading out. We scrambled along, however, the passage he-
coining smaller as wo advanced. We
were soon obliged to crawl on our
hands and knees through the narrow
passage, which must have at one time
served as a sluice, the marks of water
being very conspicuous on tho walls.
I felt more convinced, however, that
we would sooner or later reach the
open air, 01 .some obstruction that
would prevent us from proceeding further.
"in this I wus not mistaken, for
at last we beheld a faint light whieh
proved to come from an old well that
had at one time served as u part of
a pump-works by which water was
extracted from the mine. It was
quite deep, but very small in circumference, which wus the only advantage we had in making our ascent.
This was not very difficult, us the
walls were rough, with large projecting rocks on all sides.
"When at last we stood on the top,
wo united in thanks to Providence,
who had pointed out such a miraculous way iu which we were given our
liberty. The marks of our experience
were very conspicuous on all parts of
our bodies, and 1 have still sears to
testify to the suffering endured by a
crawl of three miles. We found ourselves nearly three and a half miles
from the main shaft; of the mine in
operation ut that time, a distance
which we covered largely on our
hands and knees.
"I have never been able to'ascertain
who and what was the cause of the
explosion, as none of the men were
about the place during the whole day,
and there was no one who knew of the
blast until the following Monday
morning, when they went to work. I
still believe, and shall believe, however, that the blast was not accidental."

0. M. Keep,who is heavily interested in Windermere district, has returned to look after his mining interests
there, says the Spokane Chronicle.
In speaking of the. mining outlook,

"It is now my intention to Incorporate the Silver Hell group of mines
on Toby Creek in the Windermere dis-
tiiet. The group consists of the Silver Holt, Silver Belt Fraction and
Carbonate, Considerable work has
been done on the claims during the
past'suniinor.
"I have just received a letter from
Mr. Symonds, who bus charge of  'lie
work, and he informs me that a new
discovery has been made on the Silver
Belt. There is eight feet of good ore
in a ledge running parallel with the
main ledge and only a short distance
east. The ore has all the eharaeteris
tics of the ore found in the main
ledge, and the clean ore has on assay
value of Iiu ounces in silver nnd (17 per
cent lead. Mr. Symonds says further
there is ore enough in Bight to keep
us going for two years. A larger
force of men will be put on at once
and the development continued all

latter twelve to   seven.     Our
third match was with Ihe Nationals
at Montreal. This team then held the
championship of the world and that
tith was against us before we started
to play. We were all the more determined lo win and came out with a
splendid victory of nine goals to
three. In this game our team won
the record of the world, scoring three
goals in .Mi Seconds. The lirst two
goals were scored hy only three passes
.f the ball for each one. We then
played the Shamrocks at Montreal
who hail won ihe championship ill
1800, but we defeated them witli n
score of six gaols to two. Although
we carried the laurels from this team
they an' still the favorites of the east,
owing to their previous record, When
we played against the Capitals nt Ottawa on August 31, we probably played before the largest number of spectators that ever congregated to see a
locrosse contest.    There were over 3,-
0110 people present lo see the game.
This was undoubtedly ihe fastest
game ever played in Canada. In the
entire game there were not live mis-
plays made. During Ihe lirst IS minutes, we thought that defeat was out-
fate, but tlie staying powers of our
team proved too much foi- them, anil
at the end of tin1 game with a score of
four lo one, we had won ihe championship of the world. We then proceeded to Toronto, where we played
that team, the game resulting in a
draw, our team being badly crippled.
We asked them to play on the following Thursday, but they would not.
Our last game was with the Tecum-
sells, of Toronto, whom wc easily defeated. We were not very well treated in Toronto, but were given the
short end of   everything."
Mr. Lynch who played lirst home,
and Mr. A. Turnbull. received much
praise from the eastern papers, owing
to their good playing. They are the

George Ham, the literary man of
the C, 1'. K., and one of the bent
known newspaper men between the
Atlantic and Pacific, reached town
(sometime between o'clock last night
ami in o'clock this morning, having,
it iH said, waited in the outskirts of
the city until President Shaughnessy
and his party left for Kossland. This
morning lie was busily engaged in
Bhaking hands, etc., with his many
friends in Nelson. Ham's presence in
town reminds the writer of an incident which occurred in Winnipeg
about ten or twelve years ago. At
that time George was a valued employe of the Free Press. He and Gov-
ernor Schulu. then Lleutenant-Gov
ernor of Manitoba, wore rather warm
friends aud George, having been invited to Government House several
times, took an afternoon off one day
and called on the Governor. The balance of the story can better be given
in George's own language, just as he
related it that evening in tbe Free
Press office.
"I sat around and talked with the
Governor for a while," Baid George,
"and then he suggested that I might
be thirsty. I was forced to admit that
I was and he asked mc���with what I
took to he a wink how I would like
some cold tea. 1 admitted that I
might hi- able to worry a bit of it
down and be called the servant. Iii a
moment the servant was back again
ml I was banded my drink. I put it
to my lips and Kent it down. You
might not believe   it   boys,   but   I'm
d d if it wasn't cold   tea.    I nearly
died."
Another story Ham used to tell, in
which the name of Governor Sohultz
appears, is the following: <Jov.
Schultz owned a yacht on Lake Winnipeg known an the Keewatin. Word
reached the Free Press office one afternoon that the Keewatin had capsized
and two men had been drowned.
George was busy getting the details to
wire them east when the telephone
run^.    It was Gov. Schultz.
" Is   that   you   George?" asked   the
Governor,
������Yes, what is Governor?"
"There's a story   going around that
the Keewatin    has  captdzed   and   has
drowned two men.     It   isn't   true and
I want you to deny it. "
" Put. it is true. " replied George.
������No it   isn't." said  the  Governor*,
"and   to prove it to you I'll   send the
captain of tin- boat down."
In about twenty minutes the captain of the Keewatin stood before Mr.
lain.
"You've got a story about the K>"-
watin   capsizing   and   drowning   two
men'.'" he Haul to Mr.   Ham.  "Well   it
Isn't true. "
"Hut it is. " siiid Ceorge."I've talked lo one of the men who was on the
boat. "
"Well   then   lie inns!   have lied   to

ed experience with former President
Cleveland during his last term," said
a naval officer of high rank to a
Washington Star writer, "which
taught me a lesson I ought to have
known before, and illustrates how he
sometimes went behind the record
when ne wished to inform himself as
to the accuracy of official documents.
"I was at the time chief ot a division in the Navy Department. A
woman, whose name it is not necessary to mention, used to amioj' me
greatly by soliciting my aid to secure
her a place as charwoman in the war,
state and navy building. She would
come to my olliee every day until her
presence became exceedingly distasteful to me.
"One day she produced a petition
for a pension of 830 a month for disabilities alleged to have been ineurr-
\[ in an explosion in an old arsenal
building in the reservation on the
Potomac during the war, and where
she had been employed in some capacity. The petition was headed by the
name of an officer superior in rank to
of other persons of comparative prominence in the capital. To get rid of
her I affixed my signature.
"Her private pension bill was finally taken up and passed by Congress.
It was vetoed by Mr. Cleveland. He-
fore the veto message was sent up to
the eapitol I was visited by a polite
young man, who said that he represented the president. He desired to
know whether 1 was personally ac-
lualnted with the applicant. I said
that I was not. He asked if I knew
anything of her antecedents, the nature of her wounds,;her past and present moral character, all of which I
had vouched for to the president by
my signature to her petition, 1 was
forced to confess, to my great chagrin, as I was personally acquainted
with the president, that 1 knew nothing about her beyond what 1 had seen
of her in my olliee.
"My polite inquisitor then informed me that private inquiries made at
the instance of the president had
proved the falsity of her position in
all respects save that she had been
employed by the Government at the
time of the exploson, and she was
otherwise unworthy of (Jovernniental
assistance.
"In his veto message Mr. Cleveland
made those in the war. state and navy
building feel uncomfortable by his
sarcastic remarks about officers and
gentlemen who testified to the character and worthiness of those of whom
they knew nothing, and scored Con
gress for passing a bill with the proof
of injuries   absent from the record.
"In  Washington the   petition-sign
ing habit,  formerly     much   in vogue,
has   fallen into disfavor and   officials
are very   cautious   upon   whose   peti
tions they place their signatures."

west, tells, in his recently published
work, "In Dwarf Land aud Cannibal
Country." an amusing story of bow
be nearly got in for the equivalent of
a Central African breach of promise
action with a dusky maiden.
"A young damsel of very handsome
appearance came one day," he says,
"to visit me at my house, bringing a
basket of fruit, of whieh she asked
my acceptance. Of course I thanked
her as best I could, and accepted tho
gift,
"The following day she came again,
bringing another present, and again I
gladly received it. Mut when this went
(in day after day for nearly a fortnight I began to think something was
wrong. I therefore consulted one of
the boys, who explained to me tbe
meaning of these constant visits.
���It appears that this is one of the
native customs, Any young woman
seeking a husband and finding a
young man to whom she feels drawn,
immediately brings him a present,
ami if he receives it, she ,is ecoui'aged
to renew the gift.
"Each acceptance makes it more
certain that she has found favor in
the sight of the young man, and at
the end of a certain time he is expected to propose to her, and she becomes
his wife, Imagine my feeling when I
heard the story and thought of the
many undeniable proofs I had unconsciously given her that she was an accepted suitor.
"With great' embarrassment, there
fore. 1 had to tell her that my ignorance had caused me to do what I
should not otherwise have done, and
finished up by telling her that a white
man could not possibly marry a hlaek
woman."
