British Columbia, Friday Evening,   November 30, 1900.
Eleventh  Year
Jeteran Conservative Leader Grants The
Miner an Extended   Interview.
Speaks Tomorrow.
Sir Charles Tupper, Bart., who at
the advanced age of over seventy-
nine years crossed a continent
to aid tlio Liberal - Conservative party in British Columbia in
��� electing two members of the Dominion
> House of which he himself has beon
an honored member since its inception, except when High Commissioner in London, reached Nelson iHst
evening from Kossland and tomorrow
night will address tbo electors of this
City in tbo Opera House.
TJie lender of tbe Liberal Conservative parly was met at the depot by a
deputation of leading Conservatives,
consisting of Messrs. W. A. Maedonald, Q. C, John Elliott, W. E. Mc-
. Candlish, Fred Starkey II. It. Cameron, VV. McNabb and others and by
them was escorted to the Hotel Phair.
One of his flrat requests was that he
be not entertained at any banquet or
formal reception of any kind. He was
tired, be said, after bis work in the
Boundary Countiy and was anxious
for a rest. This morning he breakfasted about 10 o'clock and afterwards spent an hour with a representative of The Miner whom he favored
with an extended interview.
"���A�� the result of the general election" said Sir Cbnrles, "tbe present
Government having been sustained, I
very promptly resigned the leadership
of the Liberal-Conservative party. At
my advanced age my only reason for
accepting that position was with the
hopS of promoting good Government
in Canada by the restoration  to  pow-
of the party whose policy has made
iada what it is. The division in.the
servative party on the question of
^^^ edial legislation left it in a very
f; shattered condition and I felt then
that that question being removed
from public attention the claims that
the Conservative party had to thesup-
���prt of the country would undoubted-
b be recognized. I had the Butisfac-
���011 of finding as tbe result of the
fcntest just closed the complete con-
���emnntion by the country of the pres-
\mX Government, except where the
Bee cry and gigantic corruption hud
onalili'd them to stifle public senti-
���kent. In the Province of Pri.ice Ed-
Ward Island, where the Government
had a majority at the time of the dissolution, Sir Louis Davis conies back
frith a majority against him. The
Province of Nova Scotia bos given
them three more seats than they had
at the dissolution,but I have no doubt
that a recount will seut Mr. Kenny in
Halifax, and Mr. Futman in Hants,
So that the Government will only increase their majority in Nova_Scotia
by one vote. New Brunswick, where
we had a majority of two, the only
Province in the Dominion where we
had a majority at the time of dissolution, has now by means of the race
cry given them a majority of four,
result there was lnlluenced also
ly the enormous expenditure of pubic money.    The County of Queens and
unbury,   where  Mr.   Blair   was roamed four years   ago hy a large m>-
rlty, has now returned   a  Conservn-
ve, and Mr. Gibson who was elected
two years ago In tbe County of York
by a majority of one thousand, has
barely escaped defeat In that county
where his father was supposed to bold
the constituency In the hollow of his
"In the Province of Ontario, whore
at the time of dissolution the'Govorn-
ment had a majority of 12, thoy now
find themselves in a minority of 22.
Tho great cities, Toronto and Hamilton, have sent a solid Conservative
deputation by overwhelming majorities, in opposition to the present Government, where four of the Conserva
tive candidates were defeated four
yeurB ago. In the Province of Manitoba, where at the dissolution tbe
(lovernment had the Bupport of a majority of the meiubert, Mr. Sifton,
who secured his election by the most
corrupt means, has but one supporter,
returned by tbe judge on a recount by
a majority of one. I havo no doubt
that a protest will result in his being
left without even that feeble support
from  that  Province.    Io  t,be North
West Territories an Independent supporter of the Government in East As-
siniboia has had his majority reduced
from over 1,000 to 200. Mr. Oliver,
who has on a number of important
occasions voted against tbo Government, has been again returned In Alberta, and by means of the Galician
and Mormon vote they have succeeded in defeating Mr. Davin.
"In British Columbia they have so
far succeeded in electing only one supporter, nnd it now remains to be seen
whether the important constituencies
of Yale-Cariboo and Burrard, will on
the sixth of Decembor unite with the
overwhelming public scntimont of Ontario, Manitoba and Prince Edward
Island in condemning the mal-admin-
istration and corruption of tho present
Government, or throw in their lot
with the French majority of the Province of Quebec, upon which alone tho
Government are now dependant. The
appeal to the cry of race and the determination of the Government not to
aid the Hritish arms in South Africa
until compelled to choose between rendering that aid or being immediately
dismissed from ofllco, has given the
Government 57 seats in tbe Province of
Quebec,againit eight seats held by the
Conservatives, or a majority of 411 in
thnt Province. At the dissolution, tbe
Government had a majority of 58.
Now they find themselves reduced 'j.to
about 40, or nine less than their majority in Quebec. I do not believe
that with tho enormous additional
strength given by tbe recent election
to the Liberal-Conservative party that
any doubt exists that at no distant
day their triumph will be complete and
tho Government of the country placed
in the hands of the party whoso policy on all the great questions has secured the prosperity and progress
which have rendered the Dominion
conspicuous in the eyeB of the world.
I cannot believo that these two great
loyal and independent constituencies, who are to givo their
verdict on December        0,
will give their support to a Government of which Mr. Tarte is a prominent member, ns Mr. Tarte, when representing Canada at the I'aris Exposition, declared that IIU out of every
hundred of the two millions of French-
Canadians in Canada, were opposed to
any md being given to Englncd in
South Africa, und whose paper La Pa-
trie denounced as criminals the
French members who supported the
policy of sending contingents and who
succeeded in driving M. Bergeron out
of public life for having avowed the
opinion thnt French and Englishmen
were alike bound to assist England in
sustaining British institutions in
South Africa.
"Although defeated in my own constituency, I had the untisfuction of
finding the Province of Ontario,which
hns been my home for the lust thirty
yoarB, except when temporarily absent in England, and where I devoted
my efforts mainly during the recent
contest, upholding   the    standard    of
tho Liberal-Conservative party in the
most unmistiyjieable manner that It
has ever exhibited. After devoting 4fi
years of my life.to promote tbo best
Interests of my country to tho utmost
of my ability, 1 am only too glad at
my advanced ago to be relieved
from tho great ruBponslbllity and
onerous duties of tlio position 1 occupied, but 1 could not refuse to give my
hearty support in these two constituencies, Yale-Cariboo and Burrard,
where tho contest arose during my
Sir Charles did not care to say iiny-
thing about his probable successor to
the leadership. Asked ns to where he
would reside in the future ho said he
had not yet mado up his mind. lie
will leave Nelson on Snndny night and
return to Vancouver, where bo will
remain a few days before leaving for
the east.
Toronto, Nov. 30.���Joseph Hnzlotnu,
the ilruggist arrested on the char e of
performiug   an abortion on   Margaret
Milne   a  few days  ago, and   who ie
now charged with murder, Mrs. Milno
having died last night, was brought
up in police court this morning and
pleaded not guilty. The case was
postponed till Monday.
A Shipment of Live Deer Start Across
Vuncouver.Nov. 30.���The latest shipments to England from Hritish Columbia aro nothing less than seven
live deer which were recently captured at Murray Corner, up thu.Fraser
Valley. None of them aro very far removed from the fawn stage, and not
having the delightful experience of
having long roamed the wilds untram-
meled, aro taking their confinement
very philosophically. They are to be
shipped east over the C. P. R.
Balfour Extension of G.P.R.
Ready for Regular
A Piece of Work That Will
Do Away With Delay
From Ice.
The entire work upon the Balfour
extension between Procter and Five-
Mile Point will be finished tomorrow,
and the road will then be ready for
traffic. During the past few weeks a
large force of men have been engaged
and tbe ballusting has been pushed
as rapidly .ib possible. The camp at
Procter at which 120 mon are engaged
will on Sunday morning be moved to
Five-Mile Point. The replacing and
straightening of tho track between
Nelson and that point will be started
at onco and will be completed in a
.month or six weeks. The grade for
this portion of the extension wns com
pleted some time ago and the work
that is yet to be done can be carried
on with out a hitch. When completed
a through rail line to Balfour will
The first sod on this branch was
turned last March and in only u few
weeks more the line will have been
made one of the best in the Kootenays. The progress of the work was
retarded somewhat owing to the section being of a very rough nature.
Many gulches had to be filled and considerable rock cutting done. There
are only two bridges along the line,
one at Nine-Mile Point and the other
some distance on. The latter bridge
in the near future will be filled in.
which is in keeping with the work
that tho C. P. R. is doing in other
portions of the Kootenays and especially on the line from NelBon to Robson as many bridges there were filled
in during the summer.
It wus the intention of the company
to have tho road ready for use in case
navigation was stopped on the lake by
cold weather. If such a case does
happen, passenger and freight trallic
will bo run over the lino to Proctor.
The effect on Procter is already noticeable as real cstttte has advanced
considerably. It will bo beneficial to
the business men and the mine owners of that section, as it Is exceedingly convenient for both tbe import nnd
export of freight. The Canadian Pacific is to he highly congratulated nn
tho steady progress It is making in
laying nn endless chain of truck
through tho southern portion of Hritish Columbia. Next year will undoubtedly see a line laid from Arrowhead, where connections are mnde
with thu main line, to Kaslo and
probably only a few years and Kuslo
will be connected with Ilalfour. On
the other hand, probnblj- next year
the work will be started on the construction of a line from Procter to
Kootenay Landing, and then the main
lino of that great continental road, as
to passenger traffic will pass through
Nelson, the rapidly advancing City of
the Inland Empire.
New York, Nov. Jo.���President McKinley, says a Washington spoclal to
The Herald, has elected Attorney General Griggs as one of the representatives of the United States in the Inter*
national court of abrltratlons to bo
organized at The Hague.
Shanghai,Nov. 30.���A missionary in
the Province of Han Su reports that
ten thousand cf the troops of General
Tung Fu Unking entered that Province and joined Prince Tuan's rebellion against tho Emperor. Tung hns
been obtaining supplies from the viceroy of S/.e Chuen. Tho Governor of
Shun Si has wired a request to the
Wu Chang Viceroy to send him without delay, eight quick firing guns
and the Viceroy haB ordered,thc guns
to be Bent. It is reported that Hau
Tung, guardian of the heir apparent,
is still alive and Is hiding near Pekin. Vice Admiral Seymour's visit to
the Vang Tse Viceroys is said to have
been in every way satisfactory.
Tien Tsin, Nov. 30.���Tung Wen
lluan, Provincial treasurer of Chi Li,
who was sentenced to death by the
International Military Tribunal at
Pao Ting, is being brought here to be
publicly beheaded by the City Government executioner. This.is the request
of the Pso  Ting military authorities.
Victoria, B. C, Nov. 30.���Dispatches from Hong Kong say: The crew of

according to mall udviceB. Villagers
of Lam To Chuk, in Kwang Tung, opposed rebels and fought for two days,
but finally hud to retire with a loss of
2,000, the rebels losing 400. The rebels after victory fired the villages and
massacred women and children. Admiral llo's force went after tho rebels
and driving them back, burned their
villnges. The powder magazine at
Lanking exploded through being
struck by lightning, 40 people being
killed, buildings razed and windows
within a radius of 20 miles broken.
All Outstanding Difficulties Being
Amicably Settled.
London, Nov. 30.���Nothing in regard to the United States battleship
is coming direct from .Smyrna. The
authorities there aro censoring all despatches.
Constantinople, Nov. 20.���(Thurs-
day)~The opinion is expressed in diplomatic circles that the American
claims arising from tho Armenian
massacres, may now be regarded as
practically settled as an irade provid
ing for the building of a cruiser in
the United States is officially promulgated. The question of the consulate
at Hurpoot remains open, the Porte
persisting in its refusal to grunt an
exequatur to Dr. Thomas H. Norton.
Tbe moral effect, however, creuted by
the presence of tbo United States battleship Kentucky at Smyrna in support of tho represctatives of the American legation, tuken in conjunction
with the settlement of tho other
claims, leads tho legation to hope for
an enrly arrangementaof all outstanding diU'erences.
Ileturning Soldiers Enthusiastically
Greeted at the Empire.

ot his address to the Refugees' Committee on Tuesday, Sir Alfred Milner
admitted that there had been general
miscalculation as to the time when
peace would be restored. Guerilla

Another Rich Slocan
the Producers
Property Added to
of the Silver-
Tomorrow the well known Ivanhoe
mine, situated near Sandon,and wnich
has rapidly come to the fiont during
the past few months, will be added to
the long list of shippers in that district. This morning the management
of tho mine notified the local officials
of the C. P. R. thnt they were ready
to ship at onco and wished cars sent
to the mine to day, and tho wish wnB
granted. The concentrator, which
was lately installed und which*.! considered to be one of the most modern
in tho Province,bus now been in oper-
ution only 10 days, und now over 200
tons of concentrates ure ready at tbe
mine to be shipped; Tho ore which Is
galena will be shipped to the^smelters
at Nelson and Trail.
But little was known of this mine
up to two years ago. Tbo work hns
been carried on quietly and steadily
and. the property is one of tbe richest
in that district. Having this added
to the list there are now in tbe Slocan mining district over 3,r, properties
which ure shipping steadily.
Mr. 8. S. Taylor, Q. C., who has
been stumping through tho Slocan
district with Mr. A. L. Sifton, in the
interests of the Liberal candidate,
Mr. VV. A. Galliher, returned to the
city lust evening. In speaking of the
lvunboe property and tho town of
Snndon he suid:
"The Ivanhoe concentrator situated
about a quarter of a mile from the
town of Sandon is now fully completed and has been in operation for 10
days, producing most satisfactory results. The plunt is considered by mining men to be the most complete and
up-to-date yet constructed in the
Kootenay country. Tho building is
very conveniently situated on tbe
smith bank of Carpenter Creek and Iiub
a water system which furnishes power for the operation of its electric
light plant and crusher. A second system from another creek furni-ies
power for the rest of the plant. No
steam power is used in the mill. The
capacity of tbo mill is 150 tons per
day and the concentrates are running
on an average in proportion of four
to one. A tramway of the latest design is now completed to the length
of about 2,200 feet and was construst-
ed by Jt. C. Riblet of Nelson. It is al-
bo in operation and is giving every
satisfaction. The owners are operating two mining properties in connection with the mill, namely the Ivanhoe   and   Sunset.    Both   ure   looking
well nnd the Ivanhoe in particular is
considered one of the stiongest properties in the Slocun. Immense quantities of oro are at present exposed
by tbe development. The propel tics
and mill nre owned by the Minnesota
Silver Company and are being managed by Mr. P. .7. Hlckcy to whose
ability us nu nil round milling mnn,
the success of both mine and mill
Chiefly attributed. The Canndiun I'a-
cillc Railway after examining tlie
properties has considered il of sufficient importance to justify thorn lu
building a special spur truck across
Carpenter Creek to the mill at tlie bottom of the hill nnd the K. >t S. desiring fo'get. u'shnre ol the freight produced by this property Is putting in n
hydraulic hoist from the mill to their
truck which runs on n somewhat higher level.
"It Is the general Impression of all
parties visiting Snndon nt tho present
time, that the town has never been In
such u prosperous nnd advanced ceni-
dition since its foundation, The
stroets are wider, buildings are more
modern and of n inferior type to those
existing prior to the fire of lust summer. The business men residing there
state that the town tins recovered to
ii great extent from the effects of the
fire, nnd that its prospects wen- never
brighter and its business more satisfactory than at the present time. A
large number of mining properties
are being developed In the near vicinity and their showings are such us to
justify tho belief Hint Sandon will

* ���   ���
T. G, Procter, who hns just returned
from the Alice group, situated^about
two miles from Crestoa, Ib well pleased with the way the property is showing up. Since this property was bonded its development has proven so satisfactory that much more work, than
was nt first"intended, will be done at
once. A MO-foot cross cut tunnel
which hns just been started will be
run to tap the lead at the 250 foot level. A small force of men is at work,
aad another force to incrense the
number to 12 men was sent up to the
property toduy from Nelson and the
work will be pushed^as rapidly as possible.
Another feature that will be a great
benefit to the property is that the
Government will build a wagon road
from the town of Crcston to the bottom of the hill on which the property
is situated. About (600 has been appropriated for the work. Mr. Procter
said this morning thnt a road from
thiamine would be connected with the
Government road. This will aid greatly in bringing the mine woll to the
front among tbe mining properties of
thut district.
��� ���   ���
Mr. Frank VV. Peters, assistant general freight ageat of the Pacific division of the Cnuadlun Pncific is prepar-
ing a complete directory of the shipping mining properties of East and
West Kootenay and the Boundary
country. This Is a very Important
piece of work and will be of great
value to all mining men and tho public generally. It will contain the sit-
iini ieeii. name of tho owners, and the
name of ouch property In each district. The names will bo in a tabulated form and the book will be a
most convenient one. Along with the
name of each property, there will bo
given a description of the ore, that
is, only to which variety it belongs.
A list uf ^concentrators, stamp mills
and smelters will  also be given.
Mr. Peters, owing to the position
he holds, and us the Canadian Pacific
bundles nearly all tho oro that Is
shipped from tho various mines of
Eastern British Columbia, is probably the best informed man in the
Province in this connection. Time
and again lie has been asked for such
information, and he feels that this
will readily meet the requirements.
It will be published especially for the
capitalists of the east who are largely
interested in this Province, and tbo
public generally.

We have no reason to question the
perfect truth of the statement, made
this morning by Mr. Houston and his
paper, that "the best posted fire insurance agent in Nelson" Ib in favor
of a paid Fire Department; or of that
of the "manager of the lnrgest whole-
sub? house in Nelson," of similar purport; or of that of tbo "proprietor of
the largest dry goods house on Haker
Street," endorsing the opinions of the
other two. What they say may be
quite true; but just now it is not the
point, and if these gentlemen were as
wise as they are important in other
respects they would not permit themselves to be made the tools of so
transparent a trickster as Mr. Houston.
A paid Firo Department is one thing;
the insulting reception given to the
delegates of the present Volunteer Department, the flouting of the other
members of the Council, and the disorganisation of the fire service by tbe
summary suspension of the present
Chief, are quite another. The question of a paid Fire Department has
not yet come up. The time may or
may not be ripe for it; but when it
does come, it will no doubt be considered with all the deliberation it deserves. The present question is that
of the conduct of our Mayor, who,
with all his opportunities for improvement, cannot rise superior to the
boor in his manners, nor act with discretion when under the least excitement. We shall have a paid Fire Department in good time, even though
the best posted agent nnd those greatest of managers and proprietors
hbeiiilel withhold the light of their
countenance; but in the meantime it is
desirable to maintain the greatest
possible efficiency of the S3'8tem we already have, and this cannot be done
if the Mayor is to be allowed through
mere spite, In one of his frequent
outbreaks of temper, to throw it into
confusion by removing its head.
There aro quite a number of other
people in town besides the Mayor,
tho best posted agent, and the greatest of managers nnd proprietors, and
many of them are owners of property
which it is their interest to have protected against fire. The only protection at present enjoyed is that afforded by the existing system, and until
we decide to have a better and proceed to organise it in all its details
we want that system kept in as perfect a condition as possible. An ill
tempered Mayor is not to be allowed
to kick holes in it whenever free citizens of Nelson choose to look across
the street without bis permission.
The Rossland gentlemen who are
promoting the Chamber of Mines in
form Tho Miner thnt the success of
the venture is now more than assured.
From all parts of the country the
grentest interest Is being evinced in
the Chamber, as letters pouring in to
tbo officers from every mining camp
attest. The Boundary district has
taken the matter up must enthusiastically; East Kootenay halls it as "a
long felt want," the Slocan bus promised it every rapport, Vmir is anxious
to do all it can���in fact every placo
but Nelson lias come out very much in
favor of it. As no point in the country
is more interested in the development
of the mines than is Nelsoii.it is difficult to sec why it is that the responses from here have boen behind
those received from tbo numerous
fmaller places. The people of Nelson
should see to it that such a worthy
object is Supported, It is probable
that a general meeting, to which delegates will be asked to attend will bo
held early in the now yenr in Rossland, and the whole of .Southern Hritish Columbia will hnve a voico In
the organisation. It is by no means
a Ifosslninl body,a�� that general meeting can decide, If It so deslros, that
the headquarters of the Chamber
should be on the Kokanee Peaks; although It is   not   likely   that   anyone
win quarrel with Boislubd's cluims to
the bond office, as there is that much
due her in return for tubing the Init
iative steps. It is understood tha*
there are over fifty applications for
tho position of Secretary. Out of that
number the committee should be able
to mako a good selection.
The committee appointed in Rosb-
lnnd to settle that great issue of tho
present campaign���Did Galliher Sign
the Petition?���has solemnly decided
that be did, and has published a signed declaration to that effect. It was
very unfortunate for Mr.Galllher that
when first confronted with the statement that his signature was attached
to the petition ho should so promptly
deny it, and that two of his supporters here, without knowing tbe facts,
should also deny it. The sole Importance given to tho incident was by
these denials, for it would have beon
an easy matter at the first to have
satisfactorily explained the situation.
However, now he has himself to
thank for whatever harm it will do
his candidature.
Neither They Nor Reindeer Could
Stand the Alaska Climate.
Chicago, Nov.30.���Four Laplanders,
survivors of a party of fifteen who
left their native land three years ago
with !i00 reindeers which the United
States Government desired to test in
Alaska, are passing through Chicago
en route home. The four were Jabe
Latt, his wife,a son of 10 years, and a
daughter eight years old. Through
an interpreter Latt said that the Government's experiment with the reindeers had been unsuccessful for sevei -
al reasons. He said; "The country
did not suit either us or the reindeer.
It was cold enough but it was different in other ways. The deer cli'd not
get the same things to eat that they
did in Lapland, and they did not get
the snme treatment. When we arrived
in Alaska tho deer were distributed,
and each of us went with a certain
number to a certain place. Tho men
who worked with us did not know tho
habits of the animals and could not
treat them as they should have been
handled. 1^ do not know why the
country proved so unhealthy for the
Laplanders. Anyhow it killed the
most of our party."
Victoria, It. C, Nov. 30.���During
October, according to news received
here today from Australia, a volcano
on Bench Island, one of the New Britain group, became active and caused
a great upheaval on land and under
the sea. A number of natives, who
went out to gather fish, were killed
by the shock or drowned. Thirty
two shocks of earthquake were felt.

flays ago near Kernville but whether

there at the time, and that they were
holding a sort of a dance. The authorities believe that Chico wr.s deliberately roasted by orderB of his tribe.

Hugh Mel'herson, a minor, lies at
the City jail, with two or three fractured ribs. About II o'clock last evening, when be was highly intoxicated
he managed to work up a good row
near tbe Tremeent Hotel. The light
lasted only a few minutes, but during the mix up Mel'horseiii received his
injuries. He at once proceeded to lind
Dr. Lallan, but when he got to the
corner of .lo.Nophno anil linker Street

he Is conducting a newspaper and job

In an editorial this morning tbe
proprietor of The Tribune ovadeB the
question entirely.    He says:
"The Miner says The Tribune is
not a thoroughly union office. This
will bo news to the following-named
printers who are employed in the
office of The Tribune, etc."
Then Mr. Houston gives a list of
tho men employed in his office. Of
theso Mr. Houston and one other
are really non-union men, and a majority of the balanco have had thoir
names printed in the International
Typographical Journal, the official
paper of the Union, as being uudpr
suspension. If one man in a printing
office is not a member in good stand
ing of the Typographical Union that
office is not a union office. Mr. Houston's office is not a union office and
knowing that well Mr. Houston this
morning dared not deny the statement
mado in The Miner of yesterday. He
does not lie, as he accuses The Miner
of doing, becauso ho knows he would
be found out. Ho simply begs the
The Miner repeata.for the benefit of
the Union men whom Mr. Houston
hopes to support him or his candidate
in the n_xt mayoralty campaign,
that Tho Tribune office is not a union
office, that Mr. Houston has refused
on every occasion, but one,to listen to
a representative of the union, and
that Mr. Houston is, therefore, at
heart, opposed to union labor. When
Mr. Houston gets out of politics he
will not be subject to such criticism.
While he remains in the political
arena he must put up with it.

and will contrast half a dozen little
ones on the stage at the close. Suteir-
