No Immediate   Cause   for
Alarm-   Panic Arrested
ONE MILLION STERLING
A Eaw Shipment of Bullion in  Danger
of Confiscation.���A   British
Omiser Arrived-
London, Oct. 5.���A special from
Newcastle, Natal, says:
"Tlio Boers have left tbe laager at
Valkrust and aro moving towards tho
frontier. The situation is most critical. The magistrates and municipal
officers havo assembled in tho town
hull to concert measures for tho defense
of the town against an unexpected attack. All tbe women and children
have been ordoied to leave for the interior of Natal.
Durban, Natal, Oct  5.��� The British
cruiser Phi'.a has ttll'ived in the harbor.
London, Oct. 5.���It is reported that
another Kami shipment of bullion,valued at one million sterling, is in danger of confiscation by tho Trans7aal
authorities.
Newcastle, Natal, Oot. S.���10:50 a.
ni.��� A despatch has been received here
from tho Government, stating that
there is no immediate cause for alarm.
This had the effect of arresting the
panic.
Loudon, Oct. 5. ���Inoteased activity
is b-dng shown at Woolwich, and it is
alleged that provision is bring made
there to send supplies for two army
coips. Four bnudred tons of material
and munitions of war havo already
been shipped for Afrioa.
Peace meetings held at Birmingham
and Hallux last evening were scenes of
much disturbance. At the Birmingham meeting a crowd of jingo-, in
Mined ihe hull, oheertnp Mr. Chamberlain and singing "Kule Britannia,"
and tho orators hud to be coo lent to
shout their spueoh.es into the reporters'
ears. The meeting ended ahruptly
without any resolution   being   pai-sed.
A despatch from Johannesburg ro-
porlH that Kaffirs are raiding the
business places anil houses ill the East
Kami 'Ihe whites Ilrntl on tnein. A
special force of police has been despatched to disperse too raiders.
Mafeking, Oct. fi.���It is asserted
here, on reliable authority, that (ho
BnrghetB have been strictly enjoined
not to cross the western frontier or to
Interfere with civilians, but to resist
the passage of an armed force.
London, Oot. fi.���From other Newcastle advices it appears that the Pro
mier of Nr.tal had siid to tho military
authorities that they can render Newcastle no assistance, adding that if tho
Boers intend to attack the town",resistance would be futile, and the women
and children should he sent away and
th�� town surrendered.
An unconfirmed report says that
martial law has been proclaimed in
the Transvaal. A despatch from Johannesburg says the regular distribution of letters has ceased. The Transvaal Government haB countermanded
all dynamite aud cyancide supplies
which havo been removed and placed
under strict guard at various dopots. A
strong guard has been stationed nt the
reservoir to prevout tampering witb
the water.
An enthusiastic meeting of Irishmen
was held last evening in Kimblerly under the presidency of a former Mayor
of the town, at whioh resolutions
were unanimously adopted expressing
disapproval of tbe conduct of Irishmen
who sympathized witb the Boers aud
of tho oourse of tbe Irish parliamentary party in extending sympathy and
support to tho Transvaal in the present crisis.
A despatch from Newcastle, Natal,
filed this morning ac 9:10, says: Telegraphic communication with Charleston is open. Tbe Boers command at
Sanipruit was reinforced yesterday,but
no advance is expected."
This information is important, as it
contradicts tho alarmist dispatch ot
Tho Daily Telegraph,whiuh was timed
at noon yesterday.

Rossland, B. C, Oct. 5.���Judge
Forin, of Nelson, arrived here at 7 :40

the extradition of Charles H.Hinckley,
ulius Clius. A. Morris, charged with
stealing $07,000 in casli from tho West
Side bank in New York city in May,
18D4. The judge opened court at 8
o'clock, and conusol for the prisouei
asked for his immediate discharge, as
Me   had   been   ill. gaily  arrested   ami
mid not bo held.
The lawyer for tho United Stall s
and for the bun); officials asked and
ibiained an adjournment until !(i
j'clnck tomorrow morning. Tho lawyer for the accused stated that at the
time of the alleged offence the presciui
extradition treaty was not in force aim
w.:s not retroactive and tliat the treutv

A FIRE STARTED.
Saoks of Lime Covered Insecurely Start
a Blaze.
Ten or twelve sackB of lime piled
up in the alley behind Turner, Beeton
& Oo. 's store nnd the old livery stable,
caught fire early this morning. The
fire was fortunately discovered before
any opportunity had been given the
blaze a chance to spread. However, it
might have oauBod a conflagration in
tho city. The rain last night and the
inefficient covering of the lime was the
cause. Officer Kerr, in company with
three others, attended to tbe fire without oalling on the fire department.

Another Start Made Yesterday.-The Race
is Again Declared off.
DEAMATIC AND THRILLING INCIDENT.
A History of the Ohallange Oup from its First Inception to
the Present Time.���It May go Back to the
Original Owners This Trial.
New York, Oct. 5.���Again today the
sea refused the Shamrock and the Columbia a field of conflict; again today
tbe multitude which went out to sea to
watch the contestants for the International yachting chumpionship of the
world returned disapppointed and not
a little disgusted.
Tbe question of supremacy of the
two great yachts ia still as much an
open question as before they first met,
as the contest today was in some respects more of a fluke than that of
Tuesday. It wns a drifting match almost from the start to tbe finish.
Crossing the line with a breeze of live
knots an hour.it never blew more than
six, most of the time less than three,
aud part of the time not a breath of
air was stirring. After sailing four
hours and 43 minutes, the yachts having covered only 12 miles of the course
to the outer mark, tbe regatta committee declared the race off, as it was
manifestly impossible, with tho breeze
then blowing, for the fleet raoera to
round the stake boat before the time
limit expired, much less to get back
home again. During tbe time in which
the yachts were at it,the wind, which
oarried them dead before it over We
line, had hauled around, until at the
finish they were beating into its teeth.
While the wind held astern, the Co
lumbia steadily outfooted her livnl
until she was fully half a mile ahead,
hut in the shifting, baffling winds that
followed during ihe last three hours,
with the great single stickers tacking
and beating and jibtiing to natch every
stroke of tho wind, witb fortune helping one about as much as the other,
tho Shamrock gradually worked her
way np uutil, wheu the race was de-
rlai-ed off, the two boats worn about on
oven terms, Ihe Shamrock, perhaps,
half a length ahead, but so close was
iho Columbia that Captain Ban could
have throwu a biscuit to tho foreigner
from over the sea.
Tho only lesson learned hy the nautical sharps from today's trial of the
abilities of the two boats is that in
light weather conditions the Columbia
is the Bnperior in running and tacking
and the Shamrock better in beating.
There has yet been no indication of
what either boat can do in a piping
wholesale breeze. So gentle were the
crestless pulsating seas that any sort of
harbor or river craft could venture out
with impunity, and a vast colony of
boats, ocoan going steamers, yachts,
tugs, Bidewheelers and sailing vessels
gathered aronud tbe red hnlk of the
Sandy Hook lightship, seven miles
from the entrance to tbe lower hay, to
watch the start. The Binoko from
their stacks and the steam from tneir
exhausts, mingled witb the haze and
formed an impenetrable veil which
transformed them in the distance into
a vuBt fleet ot phantom ships. The torpedo boats guarding the course threaded their way in and out through the
aores of boats like needles, turning the
excursion seekers ahout. But little
difficulty was experienced today, as
Captain Evnas' interviews, threatening dire conseqences to offenders, bad
a wholesonio effeot. Already the crowd
was disappointed. Eaoh one had oome
down praying for a stiff breeze, and
had found instead that there was hardly wind enough to keep the flags fluttering. Outside of tbe ruck of steamers, the old defender, Vigilant, made a
beautiful picture leading tbe way
through the mist, and the old schooner
Amerioa. which had been brought
the blue aoross the Bea fifty years ago,
attracted universal attention as she
sailed about to see how tho latest
champion would defend it.
The preparations were made aboard
both yachts for the lightest airs before
the start. Columbia disoarded her
heavy steel topsail yard for a lighter
and long pino one, and the  Irish boat
sunt aloft the largest club topsail ever
seen ou her.
As soon as the committee I 0'it bad
hoisted tho signal letters "D. O. L."
making the course fifteen miles, southeast hy south, dead before the wind,
nnd return, a puffing tug steamed
straight out to sea to plant the outer
mark, which neither raoers were destined to round today. There were
some pretty manoeuvtrs behind the
line before tbe start. Both got across
in the smoke of the last gnu, the white
bonutj a length ahead and in tbe
windward berth. Tbe wind was blowing hardly five knots. As she crossed
the green boat broke out her spinnaker, whioh was in steeps. It was
an English fashion to hoist this Bail
from the boom, and tbe Shamrock in
her trials clung to it away beyond the
seas, but since ber arrival she has
learned many Yaukes tricks, and
breaking out the spinnaker is one of
them.
The cup defender was just a little
slow iu getting her big bellying
sail out, aud this somewhat dampened
the ardor of the patriotic throng of
Americans, who love nothing so uiuoll
us foreliandedness and snaps, but sixty
seconds later both were on oven terms,
fleeing before the gentle breeze wing
and wing, spinnaker balancing, mainsail and bulging jib drawn forward.
The lazy breeze cariied the big yachtB
down the wind at a snail's pace. For
ilmost an hour the spectatots ou the
excursions boats watched them drift
like Coleridge's "painted ship on a
painted ocean.''
Tho only cheariug feature of the
situation to the majority of onlookers
was that the Columbia steadily gained
ground, inch by inch, she crept along.
At the end of fifteen minutes sovoral
lengths of dear water showed between
her aud her green rival On a. d on
she moved until she was 100 yards
ahead. The whole crew of each yacht
was aft to act as ballast and keep the
head of the yacht up. Onlv two men
were busy easing sheets and tightening
halyards when the wind began to die
and tin great balloon of canvas forward oollapsed like mealsacks. At the
same time the wind canted a little and
the Columbia conculded to change her
tactics. She took in her spinnaker and
tried reaching, leaving the balloon jib
set. It. waB a ohallenge to the Shamrock on her best point of sailing, and
Captain Hogarth eagerly accepted the
gauntlet.
They went heeling ovor toward the
Long Island shore aud tbe Columbia
continued to increase her lead. The
Sbamrook attempted to crowd on a little more canvas by setting her stay
sail,but it only kept the preoions wind
front her balloon and the sail had hung
from the stay as light and lifeless hs a
weg rag. In a few minutes she took
it down. As they approached the
Long Island shore, the breeze lifted a
moment and Long Beach rose as by
enchantment from the deep. Then it
closed down again. The lazy yachts
drifted..
The great oooan liner, Anguste Victoria, of the Hamburg-Ameiican line,
outward bound to Southampton, broke
through the misty circle wheie the
yachts were battling for supremacy
and slowed down for a moment to let
tne pasengers, who lined the rail,
catoh a glimpse of the content. Tben
she dipped her flag and sped on, vanishing like a flying express train into
tbe gloom. A few minutes later, the
Cunard liuer Servin, witb the Union
Jack at half rail, appeared as if hy
magic through tho outer ledge of the
curtain and came following into port.
In vain the patrol boats whistled their
warning, but sho swung slightly outward as she came straight on through
tbe course, dipped  her flag, as she got

abeam of the racers, and disappeared
like a streak three-quarters of a mile
to leoward, the Columbia got most of
the wash from the big trans-Atluuic
steamer, bobing on the huge swell as
it went under her and spilling much
preoions wind out of her sails.
Meantime the excursion fleet was
pushing towards the limit mark. When
they got there they waited for an hour, | The BllSilieSS Of the ToWnS
but (lie champions did not come.
Through the mist they could just be
made out, looking like high peaked
cirous touts. Then, when the wind
hauled round to the south southwest
and the racers had taken in their spinnakers to beat in close hauled, Ihe ex
eursion boats all puffed back to see
what they were doing at this point of
sailing.
For tbe rest of the race the yachts
were half the time in doldrums, with
their sails flapping listlessly. For two
hours this was kept up, during which
no one seemed to be able to tell exactly
how the Shamrock drew up on her adversary. Rather than prolong the
agony and suspense, at 3:48, when it
was apparent that the yachts could not
make tho outer mark, much less the
finish, and when both were on even
terms, the committee decided to call
the race off.
Under the rules today's race will
be sailed over on Saturday.
The nioBt dramatic picture nnd interesting incident of the day occurred
just at the finish, and it repaid tho
thousands of sightseers for the disappointment they were experiencing.
Just as the tegatta committee boat
swung out the balloon triatic stay,
which declared the race off, the spectators, all of whom were in donht as
to which boat wns ahead, were watching the yachts with intense interest.
They had split tacks and now the Columbia was sailing toward the Irish
boat on port tack with the evident intention of oroBaing her bows. The
water between them grew narrower
and narrower until she wbs close
enough to pasn a line aboard. Everybody aboard the excursion fleet expected her to cross tbe Shamrock's bow,
but Captain Barr found it too risky,
nnd as the Amerioaii champion rose iu
a queenly way on a heavy swell, he
put the helm down find came over ou
the starboard task under the Shamrock's lee. It was a disappointing
move for the patriots. Although the
Columbia had ber nose in front, the
ohallonger lapped her and held her
weather gauge. Just at this instant
the signal went up declaring the race
off, and before the astonished spectators
realized what had happened they saw-
both yachts, whose skipp?rs had evidently been watching for the signal,
I urn about aud head for home.
The sea wjb a picture. A full-rigged
ship, with all her royals set, was sailing proudly out to sea, while to tbe
westward iu the direct track of the excursion fleet us the vessels headed

A trip through the Slocan country is
sufficient to show anyone what the
effect of the Eight-Hour law has been.
There is hardly a stir iu auy of tho
Slocan towns, where a year ago all
was alive with milling and commercial activity. Now the mines are
closed, storekeepers aro scarcely doing
enough business to j.ay for tho fuel
they burn on cool evenings, aud hotel
men have their bouses full, hut are receiving no money from their guests.
It is on the hotel men that the chief
weight of the law lies fallen. Thoy
cannot afford to quarrel with the men
by turning them out of doors, and aro
therefore carrying them along. But
the men aro out of work, and consequently have no money with which to
pay notel bills. If all of tbe mines
close down, as is spoken of now, tho
men will scatter and the hotel men
will be lucky if they secure ten per
cent of the monoy due them. Ruin,
therefore, stares most of them in tho
face.
One of tho hotel keepers wno was
doing a very good business and milking money, in speaking to a Miner
man, said :
"fcia yea.�� ago I came to this country and built my hotel. 1 have paid
miners' licenses and all other kind of
licenses. I spent one thousand dollars
in cash towards building roads. I prospered and made money, aud uutil ft

Now I am absolutely broke. I havo
over $8,000 coining to ine, priucpully

consider myself lucky. It ia getting
worse every day, for the house is full
and I must buy stuff for the men to
eat. If the mines close down tight 1

nothing but the clothes on my back,

RUNNING HIM TO EARTH.
The Wellington Enterprise has taken
its courage in its two hands, and
boldly reproduced the discreditable
things which rumor has been darkly
and haltingly attributing to a Colorado newspaper as tbe faithful narrative
of Mr. Cotton's experiences in that
State. Whether fortunately or unfortunately, this bit, of interesting history
has escaped The Miner, nor does it obtain more than a vague notion of its
nature from a long review of it iu The
Victoria Colonist. There is a clear
conclusion from the recital, hjwever,
on which our able contemporary insists with much eurnestness, and that
is that a person who is guilty of the
things charged ngainst Mr. Cotton is
quite unworthy the position of a Cabinet Minister in this Province. That
is probably true, and at any rate we
are uot in the least disposed to dispute
it. The Colonist does not stop there.
It piles two Pelions on Ossa, the first
Mr. Martiu's very serious charge of
falsification, and next Mr. Cotton's
own deliberate attempt at deception
when at Kaslo a short time ago. This
latter will hear some additional notice.
It was in reference to the Eight-
Hour law. Mr. Cotton was endeavoring to assure the people of Kaslo that
the Aot passed in the usual course.
EveryoJd knew of it; in fact, it had
been advertised, he thought, in his
own newspaper, and at any rate there
had been an etlitoral on the subject.
About two months had elapsed from
the time notice of the Bill was given
until it was passed. There may havo
been a few days or three weeks between readings ; he did not know, but
in any case there was no mystery, no
secrecy, no hurry, no anything to distinguish it from the usual order of legislation. That was the impression Mr.
Cotton desired to create, as a reply,
no doubt, to the statement so frequently made that the law took the country
by surprise. Tbe Colonist characterises
his statement as a tissue of falsehoods,
and The Colonist is right. Mr. Cotton
could not but have known that his explanations, in detail as well as in general
purport, were untrue, nnd thereforo ho
was guilty of deliberate falsehoood.
Tho Miner has already given a history of this Bill,and to show how dos-
perrtte, how unscrupulous, in his recourses Mr. Cotton can be, it will
briefly repeat the facts. Notice of the
bill was given on 14th February. This
was by Mr Cotton, in the absence of
Mr. Hume, who was iu Nelson seeking re-election. Two days afterwards,
on the 16th, it was introduced and
read a first time. Four days afterwards, on the 20th, it was read a sec
ond time. On the 22nd Mr. Hume
took his seat, and also charge of tho
Bill. On the 24th it was referred to
Committee of the Whole. Now, two
things are to bit remembered : The bill
was a general one, amending in a
number of particulars the "Inspection
of Metalliferous Mine" Aot," and np
until the time it was referred there
was not one word in it about the
eight-hour day! That was a special
amendment, moved without notice
about midnight of the 84th, and pussed
in a thin House without discussion.
On the following day, tho 25th, the
Bill received its final reading, The
20th wns .Sunday. On Monday, the
27th, the House prorogued It will
be seen that Mr. Cotton deliberately
misstated the facts. Nothing was
known or suspected of the Eight-Hour
amendment until tho lust night of the
session, and it wns slipped through so
quietly that it was not uutil several
weeks afterwards it became generally
known that such a disturbing alteration in tho law had noon made.
We oan watch public men who are
under suspicion, it is true, but the
man who could he guilty of such audacious falsifying as this shonld be put
whoro watching would lie unnecessary.
There is perhaps little doubt anywhere
that the days of tlio Hardy Government nre numbered. The long succession of Liberal victories in that Province will experience a., moro or less
rude interruption whenever the next
struggle of the parties shall take place.
Bpt what influence this very reasonable
expectation will have on the question of
a dissolution at Ottawa is not BO'easy
to estimate at the distance of Nelson.
If you see it in Mr. Houston's newspaper, you are pretty safe in couclud
ing that it is not so. That very remarkable organ is as untruthful as
Mr. Coiton and as full of audacity,
although of tbe unpolished variety.
Not a day passes without misrepresentation and abuse. It said that Mr.
Davys refused to join any Mine Owners' Association, and it charged that
the management of the Fern mine was
condemned by the inspecting engineer.
Both misstatements are corrected in
yesterday's Miner. It had better confine itself to its sneers. To say that
Mr. Beer is "a type of the intolerant
Eastern Canadian Christian," and
that Mr. Robertson "would wade
through gore to secure the repeal of
the Eight-Hour law,'' is neither
truthful nor deceut, but they do no injury, excepting to the paper itself,
and its reputation is too gross to be
greatly att'octed by them.

Half the pleasnre of journalistic life
in British Columbia vanishes when
The Westminster Daily Columbian has
its fits of weariness in the discussion
of political subjects. Ono of these is
on now,and instead of those entertaining discourses on tbe virtues of the
Semi in Government and the depravity
of Turnorism, it treats us to articles
011 the exhibition, Christian Science,
and other matters important enough iu
themselves, but frightfully disappointing in a journal to which the country
looks for political inspiration.
FILIPINOS   ARE   TROUBLESOME.
An Incendiary Conspiracy in Manila
Foiled   in Time.
Manila, Oct. 5.���The Archbishop of
Manila has notified General Otis that
there was a plot on foot to burn the
residences of the Governor General
and the Arehbishop, together with several Government buildings aud banks,
but tbe plot failed to materialize, because possibly of a display of force.
The Filipinos in the inland districts
huve been holding festivities in celebration of their victories over Spain
during the revolution in 1898. This
doubtless furnishes a partial explanation for their aggressiveness during the
last fow days. At Calamba and Imus
they repeatedly assailed the Americans
until they were finally dispersed, and
they havo been active at other points.
In one case they bad two old cannon,
masked in the bushes, throwing shells
toward Calamba, but only a few exploded. Tbe American artillery in tbe
final engagement there sout more than
fifty shells among the Filipinos.
Agninaldo, according to a report
brought to Manila today,has issued orders to the Filipino soldiers iu the
Northern Provinces to return to their
towns and resume farming. This
story lacks confirmation.but tho rumor
may be in accordance with Aguiual-
do's policy of keeping the country as
productive as possible by using men in
alternative shifts on the farms and under arms.

BLOWN TO DEATH
TWO MINER'S INSTANTLY KILLED
AT MOYIE YESTEEDAY.
Ihe Sad and Fatal Accident Deplored.
���The Flag; at Half Mast an 1
the Mine Shut Down.
James Mills and Charles Ceoine,
two minors, wore killed instantly in
the No. 1 tunnel of the Lake Shore
mine, Tuesday e7eniiiR, a few minute
0f 11 o'clock. Mills and Cec.ino had
put in a round of holeH, and were preparing to shoot, when last seen alive.
It is supposed they hud difficulty in
spitting some of the fuse anii that
some of the shots went, oil' before they
bad time to get out of the way. The
bodies of tho men wero found ubout 2o
feet buck from the face of tho drift by
tbe muckers who were going on shift
at 11 o'clock. They wore almost entirely buriod in tho ore and were badly mangled. The bodies weve dug out
aud removed to tho Central Hotel
pending making arrangements for
burial,
James Mills was about 44 years of
ago and unmarried. He has one brother living iu Moyie and another in California, nnd a sister in Fernie. His
remains were interred in the cemetery
ut Oranbrook yesterday.
Chas. Cooine was about fiO years of
age, and bud been iu Moyie only a few
days. He has a wife living in Michigan, but up to the present time her
whereabouts has not been located.
The mine has been shut down since
the accident occurred,and the flag over
tho office has been at half mast.
Mrs. McLaughlin   is showing a fine
line of children's hats and caps.
EAST  Li NNK   LAST NIGHT.
The R. E. French Theatre com pa represented the well known drama, East
Lynne.at the Opera Houso lust evening
to an appreciative audience. The play
needs no comments, as East Lynne is
well known. The different characters
wore portrayed in a very efficient manner. Norma Yeager, in the double
roles of Lady Isal.elle and Madame
Vine, showed her skill as an actress
of fine quality, as also did Mrs.
Frenoh, Mamie Holden and Ouida Marion. Mrs. French, in tbe role of Cornelia Carlyle, made an excellent old
maid Mr. French once more delighted the audience in the role of Sir
Francis Levisim. Mr. Brooks us Archibald Oarlyle played his part in a
finished style, as also did Hlr. Hayes
as Lord Mount t-'evcrn. Mr. Morris as
Dill, the confidential clerk of Mr.
Carlyle. aud Mr. O'Connor as ltichard
Hare. In all,the company put on East
Lynne in a iirst class manner. One
thing which was quite an annoyance
to both tho company and audience was
the rain descending on tho ga'vanized
iron roof of the stage. At times it was
hard to catch some of the lines spoken
by the actors. Something should be
done to deaden the sound of rain on
the roof, as it greatly interferes with
the pleasure of the audiences when
they cannot catch the words from the
stage.
GORTON'S MINSTRELS.
Gorton's famous minstrel company
will appear for the first time on next
Tuesday night at the Opera House.
This company is said to be one of tho
best minstrel shows now travelling.
They will introduce specialties in singing, musical acts and portrayal of the
Southern darky on his natural heath.
Their dancing specialties aro said to
be something unique.
LOCAL  AND  PERSONAL

The Rev. A. B. Winchester, superintendent of th.) Presbyterian missions to
V.1" (i'nn;mi'-n of   H- 0., and the Rev
Mr. Ng, a Chinese missionary, aie expected in town today.
There are still some three miles of
the Molly Gibson wagon road to be
completed, but it is expected that in a
month's time the whole ten miles aud
a half  will be finished
A regular quarry has been encountered on Kootenay street, where the City
is laying sewer pipe. A gieat deal of
blasting is neoossay, renoenng the
work both tedious and expensive.
Mr. W. F. Pugslev, sou of the Hon.
W, Pngsley, of St. Johns. N. B., is in
town looking after his mining interests. He is interested iu a group of
claims adjoining the Molly Gibson.
The Kontenay Cigar Company reports that business has brightened up
considerably the last two or three
weeks, the Boundary country especially appreciating the Kootenay made
cigars.
The Nelson Gas and Coke Company
received a telegram yesterday stating
that the long expected seven cars of
pipe aro now at Spokane, and will arrive in town tomororw on a special
freight.
At the business meeting of the
Methodist Ladie.-i' Aid on Wednesday
nflernoou, it was decided to hold their

The West Kootenay Brick and Lime
Company have contracted to supply the
necessary bvick and lime for Dr. Hall's
and Mr. T. Madden'h new blocks. The
contracts call for some 350,000 briok
and live carloads of lime.
A special train will leave for Spokane on Monday morning for the Industrial Exposition. Those intending
to go should leave their names today at
Messrs Printer & Dowsing's office,
on West Baker street, so that arrangements may be made for their accommodation iu Spokane.
W. Kelly, accused of theft at Robson, was Drought np yesterday before
Judge Foriu to elect whether lie would
be tried at tho assigzes or have a
speedy trial. As his counsel, Mr. W.
A. Macdonald, L>. C., had only been instructed yesterday morning, the election was postponed until tomorrow.
Three carloads of freight consigned
to Greenwood City passed through
Nelson yesterday. It looks as if the
nmo is not far distant when Nelson
will be the supply point for Southern
British Columbia in practically all
lines, and so will not merely rrap the
meagre benefit attached to the nana-
ling of freight.
The new steam launch Vidette, built
by Mr. George Hale and belonging to
Messrs W. R. McLean and George
Hale, was given a trial spin on Tuesday evening. She was taken two miles
up the lake at half speed, and the test
was entirely satisfactory. Though not
built for racing purposes, the Vedette
is a speedy craft, and her engines are
capable of developing 8 horse power.
James Leroude was charged yesterday before Mr. J. A. Turner, sitting
as stipendiary magistrate, with having in his possession clothing and general merchandise of the value of about
$50 belonging to the Hudson's Bay
Company at Lethbridge. He pleaded
guilty and was sentenced to four
months bant labor. The prisoner was
arrested at Moyie City by Special Constable James Lindsay.
The construction of the railing for
the piece, of elevated sidewalk on Upper Silica street was begun Yesterday.
Those who have been apprehensive of
broken necks will feel grateful. If
the members of the Counicl wish to
increase the obligation of the residents
aud call down blessings on their own
heads, they will order the erection of
an electric light at the corner of
Hughes, or, better still, a little farther
to the east. With an improved electric system, this accommodation might
well be afforded the considerable community who have made Upper Silica
one of the most desirable residential
streets in the City.
AT THE HOTELS.
A marriage license was issued yesterday to John James Aitkin and
Sarah Forge.
Mrs. W. H. Pnllok aud Mrs. Esk-
rigge left yesterday morning nn a
three weeks' visit to the coast.

When Mr. Cotton was in the Slocan
he told ono of tho principal men there
that the question of the fate of the law
lay entirely iu the hands of the Kootenay members. Mr. Cotton has made
so many different statements regarding
the law that it is hard to follow him
but thut he made this statement is
positive, for Tho Miner has it on the

Mr. Emeijt Mui.sheld returned yto-
ter.Iuy from Kaslo, where he oonoluded
the arrangements foi a bond on the
Twin Lakes, the Green Lakes, Apex
and Orescent mineral claims, which
arc situated in Camp Mansfield, at the
head of llio South Fork of Kaslo Creek.
The bond is for $30,000, and a cash payment down of |l,300 was made on
Wednesday.     The   claims   belong   to
William Hoio.nl' Slocan Oity, and Mr
Mauslield made tho purchase for Mr.
Rene Lauui, of London, England. The
ore 011 the properties is silver-gold, and
the surface showings are excellent.
Considerable work has been done since
the 1st of August lost, a tunnel having
been put in 40 feet. This has to be extended another 100 feet to strike the
ore body. Mr. Mansfield goes up to
Slocan City today and will put a force
of men to work at once. Work will
be prosecuted night and day throughout the winter, and a year's supplies
will be immediately sent up to the
mine. Mr. Mansfield take�� witn him
Mr. Charles Moore, P. L. S., who will
survey tho claims.
There is also a prospect of extensive
development work being done on the
Treadwell and John A. claims, iu the
same camp, adjoining the Joker, and
as Mr. P. Dickiusou, of Slocan City,
who has bonded the Smuggler group
and other properties, 18 iu all, in the
same district, intends to develop Ins-
holdings, Camp Mansfield should be n
very bustling mining district this fall
The surface showings in the camp are
rich, and so far development has been
attended witb tie most encouragng results.
��� ��� *
2 Mr. A. H. Kelly has put a gang of
men to work on his claim on Forty-
nine Creek, the Red Top, aud also on
the Golden Five, on Eagle Creek, belonging to the Golden Five Mining
and Milling Company. It is the intention to systeiiitically develop both
these claims.
a # a
" Considerable mining development is
boing done on Bird Creek, aud a force
of men are developing the Ophir,
which is under bond to Mr J. Mac-
donald, the contractor. The adjoining
claim, the Ruby, belongs to Mr. Frank
Fletcher, who has a force of four men
at work on it. Stripping has uncover
ed what is believed to be tbe Ophir
vein, aud which contains stringers of
very rich ore. The claim is situated
above where placer gold was found in
early days, and some think the free
milling veins on these claims are the
source whence that placer gold was
derived.
* *   a
The Payne mine at Sandon has entirely discontinued work. The men
are all laid off and the mine work suspended indefinitely.
* *   *
Work at the Whitew it r [mine is
stopped. The miners all walked ont
on account of a disagreement with the
foreman.
��� ���   ���
A strike of fourteen inches of pure
ore was made in the Sovereign, the
Bid iust. Tho work was being prosecuted by contract. The strike was
made in the long tunnel, which strikes
this chute of ore at a great depth,

Mr. J. R. Cranston returned yesterday from the Boruite Bank on Morning Mountain, where he has had the
assessment work done on the six
claims of tbe group. A double compartment shaft, 5x9 in the clear, is.be-
iug sunk on the Maggie, one of the
group.
