The Globe is in a position to announce that arrangements bave almost

li is expected that just as soon ns
the Lieutenant-Governor returns from

!iW\ ,'��; Stt/Vsik Somlin and Cotton
have agreed t<> tho demnnds of the Op
position that ono of tho conditions of
a coalition shall he a change in poller. Thu eight hour law, affecting the
miners, and the anti-alien legislation
will he repealed, and there will also
be a general change in the policy pursued hy the Semlin administration
since it assumed office,
There has been seine little opposition
to the suggestion of s coalition manifested by certain of tlle supporters of
the party to iho left of Mr. Speaker,
hut their views have been overruled by
the majority of the Opposition mem
hers, who contend, quite logically,
tbat there is little use ot insisting upon the defeat of the Government and
a general diction when an arrangement satisfactory to the country can he
perfected by a coalition.
Jnst how iho House will divide
when next it meets, is a matter of
much speculation. If is not thought
Mr. Martin will have more than one or
two followers, but with him will be
a few now classed witb the Government and Opposition who, disapproving Of the ooalition, will range themselves in opposition to the new Government.

Thn following noiic.o has beon issued by the secretary of tbe South
Kootenay Board of Trade :
"A meeting of the South Kootenay
Board of Trade will be held on Tuesday next, 18th July, at 5 o'clook in
thu afterniioon, to reconsider the recommendations of the Council of tho
Board as to certain subjects regarding
mining interests to be submitted for
consideration at Ihe joint meeting of
Boards of Trade to bo held in Rossland
next month, Thu subjects recommended [nolnde consideration of tbe
lead duties and tbe effect upon tho
mining Industry of the right-hour
law.
"Nelson, 12lh July, 1890, "
Having received tins notico The
Minor's representative interviewed
several members of tbo Council of the
Board of Trade with regard to tho
question whether mining subjects
should be discussed at tbo Board of
Trade, or uot, oven assuming such sub
jecls have been made political questions.
It was gathered that the meeting
above announced bad been called at
the instance of a number of members
wbo were unable to bo present at the
last meeting,and who eonsinerd tbat as
this entiro community is either di-
lectly or indirectly interested linan-
eiallv in the success of tho mining industry, a diBOUSSionof mining subjects
was certainly within tbo proper scope
of Boards ot Trade in a mining community, whose members aro practically
all directly affected by tbe influence
bearing upon mining operations.
The Spokesman Review's Nelson
correspondent is evidently someone
connected with the Tribune for bis information is singnlarlv inaccurate.
In bis despatch to the paper regarding tbe last meeting lio snys:
'The president of the Board is the
manager of tho Ymir mine, and has
been very active in his opposition to
tl o law, and bis mine is the only one
tbat is uot working in the Nelson district. As tbe board at a previous meeting had appointed him a delegate to
the convention, tbo action tonight
plainly told him tbat his views were
not the views of the board on that
question. The members of tbo board
claimed that the eight-hour law was a
political question with winch the board

QUEENSLAND IS THANKED.
London, Julv 12.���Tho British Gov
eminent, replying to tho offer of tbo
Government of Queensland to send 250
volunteers and a machine gun to South
Africn in event of war between Great
Rritain and Transvaal, has expressed
the hope that the occasion will not
arise, adding that if it does the Government will gladly avail itself of tbis
patriotic offer.
bad better not have anything  to  do,
In tbo first place tbo statement that
tbe president's "mine is the only ono
that is uot working in tlio Nelson dis-]
triot," is incorrect. There are over BO,
men at work nt tbe Ymir mine, tbe
output being 100 tons a day which
means siillicient ore to keep the mill
working -teadily.
Secondly tho statement that tbe ac
tion of the board at the last meeting
plainly told the president that "his
views were not tbe views of the bonul
on that question" is distinctly mis
leading to anyone not knowing the eir-
eumluuc.es attendant on that meeting.
Tbe Nelson Board of Trade consists of
over no members, At tbo last meeting, lit members only voted on tho motion regarding the question as to
whether the eight-hour law should  bo
discussed at Rossland   or not,:   out   of
the in but 18 voted against endorsing
the Council's reconimendalion that
the eigbi-bour law .should be a fitting
subject for discussion and six in favor thereof.
Then again those 18 members ire by
no means, all of them at least, regular attendants nt meetings
Board ; in fact some of thn
seemed to think that they had recently
been asked to attend for the verv purpose of jumping ou tbe Council's resolutions.
One member went so far as to suggest that the Miner's Union were at
tho bottom of tho whole thiug and
pointed to the significant fact that
something of tho same nature happened at a recent meeting of the Greenwood Board of Trade,
As no opposition was expected to
the recommendations of the Council
much surprise was evinced at opposition thereto suddenly developing at
such a late date especially after tbo
invitation of the Rossland Board had
already been cordially accepted at a
previous meeting of the Board.
Apparently a  considerable    amount
of ill feeling hns bean gonerntod owing
to the unexpected action of these members who   so   strenuously opposed   the
the Inst   meeting.    It  is
New York, July 12. ���A Washington
dispatch lo an   evening paper says:
" A shrewd Canadian scheme relating
to tho Alaskan boundary dispute has
beoti exposed at tho stuto department.
The department has received from
London the prized valuation which England desired tn have mado in Secretary
Hay's provisional boundary line, Tho
state depaitnieiit vorifies tbo stoty that
Oanada insisted nn tbo inclusion of
the Porcupine district in Canadian territory. It nlso requires these two
things.
First���That Canada attempted to
grab, by an apparently innocont request, one of tbe finest gjld bearing
districts of the United States.
Second���That the proposed variation
would givo to Canada tbe control of
the upper part of a river which flows
virtually into tbo Lynn Canal.
Tbe   state   department   looked  over
the British propositions carefully witb
tho assistance   of  coast   and   geodetic
survoy experts and   rejocted the whole
of  them.    Hence  the  deadlock whioh
is understood   to   mean the  indefinite
postponemnt of, or  practioal  breaking
off of   negotiations   between  England
aud   tbe   United States on the Provis- J
iounl boundary line question. Secretary
Day proposed a   line uear   tho  White
summit of tho   Ohilkoot   Pass  theuce
to a point on the Dalton trail  near tho
Ohilkoot   Pass  aud   thence    forward
along tho north   bank   of   tbe Kleiuie
River   leaving that river in American
territory and   necessarily   the  village
of Kluckwau   ���which   is   south of   the
Kleiuio    River.    Lord Salisbury   proposed   two   variations of that lino  in
rapid succession.    He  demandod   first
Unit the Kluckwan   be  transferred   to
Canadian territory.   That was rejected
because it gave practically a water route
to the sen.    Then he proposed the variation, the particulars  of  whicii have
arrived iu   detail   at the state department and which resulted   iu   the suspension of negotiations.
"The Kleiuie River runs nearly east
and west emptying into the Chilcat
inlet whioh in turn emoties into the
Lynn Cnnil. Kluckwan is in the region where the Kleiuie merges into
the Chilcat inlot. Lord Salisbury surrendered the claim to Kluckwan but
proposed that the Hay line instead of
tunning west from a point north of
the river opposite Kluckwan should
run west at the junction with Secretary Hay's line. When the calculations
wire made here it was found that this
variation wnld   give   to  Oanada   that

to its genuineness. Th i large amount
of debt in the form of bonds issued by
the Government of Guatemala is held
by English and Germ a u interests.
Theso bonds have been practically repudiated ; at least, tbey have sunk to
nothing and German and English
holders havo protested vigorously to
their Governments. Foor war ships
aro said to havo been ordered to
Guatemala waters, two German and
uvo English. One of each flag proceeds to Puerto Bnrnns. one will be
sont to San Jos. :lo Guatemala. The
point that most interests the United
States is that, if this seizure of tho
custom houses should result in a long
holding of these ports in order tbc.t
amounts could bo collected, it would,
be necessary for a protectorate to
he establish'd over the Republic of
Guatemala while this was going on.
In that case the natural course ot
affairs would bo lo turn to oithor Mexico or the United States for that protectorate. Tho first proposition wonld
hardly be probable because of the bad
feeling existng between Guatemala
and the Republic of Mexico ovor the
boundary dlspato.
The Americans, therefore, threaten to
become British subjects so as to avoid
coinmandering. The Transvaal Government is making representations to
Washington on tho subject.

NELSON. B. C.
The suggestion is an appropriate
one to the dog rlays. A Board of Trade
is a Chamber of Commerce, aud one
would naturally suppose tbat ono of
tho kind was sulllcient for a placo tho
size of Nelson. It appears tbat this
Chamber of Commerce is to be composed exclusively of merchants. Thore
in not a Board of Trado in Oanadn,
or a Chamber of Oommeroe in tho
United Setates, whoso membership is
not n mixed ono of all classes of bnsi-
noss men, If those associations depended on merchants alone they would
not serve half as good a purpose as
thoy do, as merchants themselves will
be tho first to admit. Tbe suggestion
of a second Board or Chamber for
Nelson is a foolish one at best; it iB
doubly foolish in its proposed ex-
elusirenosB. No sensible bnsiuess man
who is capable of keeping his head,
and who caros something for the rnpn-
tation of himself and the town, will
give it n moment's countenance.
CITY SCAVENGING.
We do not know that any good will
bo accomplished by nagging the Council over this qnestion of the City scavenging. We doubt if it is necessary, ami
if not necessary of courso it is not do-
served. Although the newspapers give
fairly full reports of the doings of the
Aldermen, as theso reports go, there
are many things to which they give attention that are not noticed. It has
not been mado to appear that the
Mayor and Aldermen lie awake at
nights, or go racing about tho City by
day, consumod with anxiety because
of tho shortcomings or imperfections
of our scavenging system ; yet we shall
nut be deceiving oursolves if wo believe
that they aro quite as uiuch alive to
the importance of tbe matter as tbe
average citizen, and perhaps give it
much moio consideration. Let us be
patient, therefore. One of the prin
cipal uses of an Alderman is to serve
; a a standing target for the abuse of
tbe free and independent; but iu this
instance we can probably afford mfoio-
go our privilege, and regard him .as
on a level with other citizens.
It iB not qnite clear what the scavenging situation is. We all know
tbat the syscom was never a complete
one; it wonld not bo much of an exaggeration to say that there has been no
system at all. It is not sure tbat anyone is to blame for this, unless we indulge ourselves with regrets that the
necessity for ubsnlutu cleanliness did
not impresB itself with greater force
as we began to realise that Nelson was
bound to be a place of a very considerable population. There is somo excuse
in the faot, however, that the population really outgrew our means to pro-
vido for all itB requirements. Tho
City did not inaugurate a system of its
own as soon as the necessity for it
arose, with the result that private en
ternrise stepped in to cope with tho situation, and to this substitute the duty
has since beeu left. The service has
been reasonably satisfactory as far as it
could be applied, but of oonrse it bas
not been general enough. Lately the
Corporation has been intimating with
much directness, not to say emphasis,
that it was about to establish a system
of its own, and this, together with
other disturbing conditions, has so fill
ed the private scavengers with alarm
and general disquiet that they have
practically gone ou strike.
Now, this is the one feature of
the situation that tbe town cannot permit itself to eudnre a day
longer thau can be helped. Wo do
uot know with what force the
position appeals to tho Aldermen, but
thoy probably appreciate the gravity of
it quite as keenly as any of us. The
hot weather is upon us, if not witb all
its summer intensity, nt least witb
intensity .enough to make every garbage heap a prolific breeder of fover
germs. It requires time to get a
corporation system into working order, and it is not known that any
steps hBvo yet been taken to establish
ono. It iB clear that citizens who
have some consideration for cleanliness
and health cannot wait for corporate
action. Something is required at once.
The prcsout scavengers should bo persuaded to rosumu operations. According to thoir own representations, they
are placed in that embarrassing position described as between the devil
aud the deep sea. If they nso tbp
dumping giound out on tho Mines
Road, the Provincial police threaten
thorn with all sorts of pains aud penal-
itos; if they use any other, the Aldermen deolare thoy will have I horn
fined. Cleverer beads than those of
scavengers would ha puzzled to know
how to steer between these two dangers. An immediate need wonld seem
to be a dumping ground, or some other
expedient for tho disposal of garbage.
This it is the duty of the Counoil to
provide, and citizens will be pardoned
if they become impatient Enough to
insist that it should be done nt once.
Why tbe taction of obstructionists
should be dissatisfied after carrying
heir point at the meeting of the Board
of Trade tbo other night is not clear,
yet it is seriously proposed they shah
secede from tho Board aud form them-
seBlves into a Chamber ot   Commerce.
Tho Miner has received from the
Vancouver World a very excellently
prepared map giving n bird's eyo viow
of tho Terminal City. Tho work has
been thoroughly done and overy attention bus ovdontly been paid to derail, making the map reliable and valuable Tbo World has shown groat
enterprise in goting out the r.roductiou
whicii will undoubtedly prove a beneficial advertisement for the City of
Vancouver.

INDIGNANT     CORRESPONDENT.
To tbe Editor of Tho Miner :
Si": ���The advent of the ex-mayor
attonded by ihs erstwhile trusty henoh-
men at the last meeting of the Board
of Trade cannot fail to bring into further contempt on that irresponsible individual.
Bnt the sorry attempt to destroy the
good work of so excellent and irapar
tial institution ns tho Nelson Beard of
Trade is too palpably a spiteful under
hand blow to give any real cause for
uneasiness to tbe intelligent and sensible merchants of this Oity.
And yet this man has the audacity
to insult decent men and suggest that
tho merchants shonld fcrm a Chamber
of Commerce as an opposition bouse.
Merchnnts forsooth! To obey the
dictates of adema.^ogio'journalist?
Is Nelson to commence a retrograde
movomont? Is she once more to
submit, to tbe dictatorship of the
late mayor? Are respectable, decent
living citizens orco more going to close
their ears to the uuresrained Billingsgate whioh garnished the City Council's meetings in the "good old times?''
It cannot be, for a moment, suggest-
od that r-ach a miserable state of things
will ever be permitted to again exist
in our midst.
It is only too wol! known what yeoman service tho Board of Trade has
done for the City. Tbey have clamored for Federal buildings until the
craut for tho same has been promised.
Thay are about to bring out an excellent map and pamphlet in order to advertise the City and distriot. Tbey
havo tackled tbo question of freight
rales with rigor and success. Thero is
no subject of interest to the trade of
ibis City which, when circumstnaces
have required it, has not boon considered by tho Board.
The oight hours question" is one tbat
affects the commercial men of the town
more than the mine owners themselves.
Because an illiterate mountebank like
tho Attorney-General flaunts the eight
hour Arcadia on his banner in order to
< ntch votes for himself and his satel
lites, ibis all absorbing question of tbe
hour must be tabooed because it is a
"political" one. A more senseless or
childish reason could not bo advanced
Supposing tbo tradesmen's early clos
iug arrangement was adopted by some
crack-brained politician. Would the
Board of Trado be debarred from discussing its probable efVect on trade in
this city simply because it formed
part of that adventurer's   progr.imrne?
It was humiliating for a reasonable
citizen to listen to tbe peiorntions of
tbe ex-mayor and the political jack-in-
ollice, who assisted him in bis underhand work.
By all means let those who follow-
in bis train depart from tin Board ot
Trado and form a Glue Pot Conglomer
atioa of tbeir own. But let them not
further tarnish the honor of tbo City
by associating (be name of Nelson
with thoir venture.    Yours truly,
J. Y. CLARKE.

NEW MACHINERY FIXED, AND WILL
BLOW IN TO-DAY.
La'ge Oopper Furnace in  Full Blast -
Oontract Made for Porto Rico
Concentrates.
Tbe new big Hy wheel lor tbe
blower at the smelter arrived last night
from Spokane. Today tbe larse copper tnruace will be b'own iu and smelt-
iug will be once more lesuuied. A
quantity of goud ore bas beeu coming
down from the mine lately so there
will be plenty of food fur the furnace
By the by i.: a paragraph in yester
day's Miner tbe word "shipping" was
in error printed for ' smelting."
The Silver King has of course been
shipping coutinnnlly. A uew engine
hns been ordered for the Bmelter and is
expected to arrive shortly. The Hall
Miues, Limited have recently made a
contract with the Porto Kico mine to
deal with all the concentrates from
that mine. The smelter will coutinre
to treat custom ores as heretofore
though the smelting of Silver King ore
is of course the primary object.
The fact that the smelter will now
start work again in earnest ia a matter of great importance to the town.
A number of bauds ate employed,
wages are high and n man who is
vorth his salt has generally bnt little
dilliculty in getting a job there when
work is" in full swing.
Yinir July 19.���Wm, Bannon and
L. J. Window of Ymir bave made a
sale to Montreal parties of their property on Hidden Creek, namely Klon-
dyke. Republic aud Jessie M. The
cousideiatiou 1 bave been asked to
withhold, but I would state that it is
a good ronnd sum. The property has a
ledge of quartz which iB some 80 feet
iu width, surface assays went $s. The
purchasers have made arrangements
to work the property this summer.
Tom Woods, foreman of the Big
Home Group was iu town Tuesday
aud brought down witb bini some fine
samples of ere. These bave been assayed and gave big results iu gold.
The ore body now is three feet in
width, tbe hanRiuK wall not yet being
found, and the shaft which is being
sunk on the apex of the ledge is
down to a depth of 35 feet. The
property has every indicatiou of a
mine.
Messrs. Bonner &   Warwick have lo-
oated   two   full   sized claims   in  the
neighborhood of the Big Home.    They
claim that tbey have the same ledge.
*   ���    ���
Work on the Silver Hill Group will
now be energetically pushed   forward.
This group is situated on Canyon
Creek, a tributary of Crawford Creek.
On the Indication, one of tbe claims
of the group, a lead of two feet of solid ore has been struck. Mr. Quarn-
Btrom has made a strike of high grade
ore on tbe California wbich adjoins the
Commonwealth. The latter claim, belongs to W. Drnry and T. G. Procter
and is at present being surveyed. Last
week a pack train waa sent over Sawyer Pass for tbe first time tbis season.
A good deal of snow still remain0

The troubles began by a crowd gath-
erioK in front of the car barns, and
wheu a cur manned by ''scabs" came
nut a howl went up As the car turned on to Dundaa atieet a fusilade of
stoue.i coii] nn need from the mob,
which soon grew into thousands. Eaoh
Buceedinn i ur was a target.every window being smashed by missiles, while
the crew ran tho risk of their lives.
The mayor addressed the crowd, but
could not pacify them. A special
constable of the railway company pulled a revolver aud thus completed the
infuriirion of the rioters, who si cceed-
ed iu gashing him badly with stones
before be could be hustled to a place
of safety. Rioting continued until
11 p. ro.. when the mayor Bnrauioned
the military, who at once appeared on
the scene with loaded rifles. On their
arrival the crowd desisted from its
attacks and by midnight ibe streets
were cleared,. Eight or ten non-union
men aud policemen are injured. The
principal factor iu quelling the trouble wns the appearance of Col. Buchan
nnd 89 men from the B. C. D. The
authorities still anticipate trouble.

PREJUDICE
Is the cause of many a Batch of Bread having to be thrown
into the sewer, and a woman's time and labor gone
with it. If you weren't so prejudiced you could have
just as good'success with your Bread as your neighbor.
We- advise ; Throw prejudice aside, and tor your next
Baking try a sack of
3   STAR   FLOUR.
Thousands are using it with success ; why not you? If it
doesn't suit you, you don't have to pay i'or it.
