BOUNDARY LIE
By Terms of Agreement Canada Gets
PORT ON LYNN  CANAL
The State Department Has Oome to Two
Conclusions as to Manner of
Final Agreement.
New York. Oct. 0.���The evening
papers publish the following from
Washington regarding tho Alaskan
bonurlary:
The State Department is informed
from London that the British Foreign
Office had ratified the Alaskan provisional boundary line as agreed npon by
Secretary of State Hay and Mr. Tower,
BritiBh Charge rl'Affaires. The agreement was submitted to the British
Foreign Office about six weeks ago for
ratification, without which it wonld
not be operative. The most important
commercial and political consideration
in the Hay-Tower modus vivendi is
that it earrierl with it the agreement
that Canada will be grunted a lease foi
one year of a port on the Lynn canal,
This concession has already been
shown to be unpopular in the west and
northwest, that, if it lie made a pint of
any proposed final agreement, it will
probably be rejected.
The State Department hits already
come to two definite conclusions as to
the manner in which the linal agreement may be reached. The conclusions
are:
First���By a remission ui ��he rieHuri-
ualion of tho line to tho Join t High
Commission, its conclusion Ie subjected lo the ratification of the Senate.
Second���By a court, of arbitration,
whose functions will be coniiuuri io
threo propositions, as follows :
(a) Tlio United States will draw
aud submit its final line to the court.
(b) Great Britain, acting for Canada, will draw its fii al lite and submit to the Court.
(o) The Court will hear the argument and determine which of these
lfnes it, should adopt.
There mu=t be no compromise line.
The standpoints officials affirm they are
unwilling to submit SO grave a question as the one invohod to a Court
with unlimited authority to make com
promises which would give Canadian
territory to Americans, or vice versa.
The State Department will not run Iho
risk of such a decision as was reached
in the British-Venezuelan abitration.
The Court of Arbitration will not be
resorted to if Canada, England and the
United States agree to remit the final
boundary to the Joint High Commission. Its failure to agree induced Lord
Salisbury aud Col. Hay to assign to
Col. Hay aud Mr. Tower the duty of
agreeing on a modus vivendi, subject
to ratification by the British Foreign
Office.
Tho faot that Sir Louis Davis, Canada's special cominissio-ier, is now iu
London, is taken here to indicate that
Canada has at least consented freoly to
the Hay-Tower convention, hut that
she has staked her chances for her
prinoipal claims on a board ot arbitration or tbe Joint High Commission.
From the attitude of at least two
American commissioners, it can be
stated that if the High Commission is
reinvested with power to suggest the
true line; that line will not differ ma-
terally from the Hay-Tower line, aud
the commission will say Canada
should have a port on Lynn canul
In other words, the provisional line
and the temporary lease of a port will
be made permanent. Such an agreement would undoubtedly be ratified by
the British Foieigu Office,but it would
not be ratified by the United States
Senate.
The State Department officials have,
in fact, been already apprised of the
faot that nearly all tho weatern and
northwestern Senators are irrevocably
opposed to surrendering to Canada sovereignty over Jany water or lands
Whioh now and" have been American
territory since tho purchase of Alaska
in 1867.
today at New Westminster. Dr. D. H.
Wilson, formerly of Winnipeg, was
chairman, and Sir Mackenzie Bowell
made the prinoipal speech of the evening. The proceedings were secret, but
it was given out that the next Provincial election will be run ou party lines
in British Columbia, so far as the Conservatives are concerned.
AFFAIRS OF  AUSTRALIA.
ON PARTY LINES.
Now South Wales Cabinet Has Resigned.���Native Riots.
Victoria, B. C, Oct. 6���Advioes by
the Aorangi say that the meeting of
the New South Wales Cabinet waB
held on September 12 and the Premier,
Mr. Reid, londerei his resignation to
the Governor, who accepted it. Afterwards the Governor took official farewell of the Ministers, thanking them
for the assistance rendered him since
he has been in New South Wales. Mr.
Lines accepted the task of forming a
new administration.
A Parliamentary railway committee
was appointed. The speech refers to
tho necessity for the construction of a
number of light line railways to the
agricultural districts and other necessary public works, also increased endowment to local authorities and the
reduction in the rate of interest charged them.
Asher Smith, manager of the firm of
J. McEwan & Co., was a passenger on
the Aorangi. He is the delegate of the
Sydney Chamber of Commerce to the
Philadelphia Commercial Congress.
Native riots have oocurred at Brae-
side, West Australia, and it is believed
that a Mr. Hodgson has been killed.
The Tivoli theater has been destroyed by fire.    Loss, ��85.000.
HOUSE FOR DEWEY.
Washington. DC. Oct. fl.���Admiral
Dewey has elected to accept a house in
Washington already constructed, instead of having one built for him. In
accordance ' .1th the invitation of the
oouimittee which has had in charge
the Dewey Home Fund, be called at
Iho office of Acting Secretary Allen in
the. Navy Department at 11 o'clock to-
uay to indicate his preference. Tho
Admiral was fully informed of the
purpose of the people of the United
States to present him with a home in
Washington. He expressed his graatifl-
intion and immediately accepted. He
said that had the proposed home been
the gift of wealthy meu he would be
indisposed to accept, bnt he knew they
hud over 48,000 subscribers indicating
the home was the gift of tho American
people aud so he would accept it with
pleasure The fund at the disposal of
the eommWee now amounts to (RO.OOO.
REBELS  DRIVEN OUT.
Manila, Oct. fl.��� General Fred Grant
wit three companies of infantry, two
oompanies of the 14th inai try aud a
baud of scouts, attached to the former
regiment advanced from Imus this
morning driving Insurgents from tbe
entire west bank of the Imus. Three
Americans were wounded. Companies
O and H with the scouts crossed the
river at the big bend and advanced
westward iu the direction of Bhnaeay-
an road, tne insurgents firing volleys
but retiring. Twenty Filipinos were
discovered entrenched at tho Bimioay-
an nhurob, about midway between
Baccoor and Cavite Viejo. They were
routed and six were killed. Riley's
battery of the 5th artillery made an
effoctive sortie about a mile south of
Baccoor, and shellod the west bank of
the river at close range. The bank is
now held by the Americans.
AGAINST  HIGH LIVING.
Vancouver, B. U., Oot 6.���Conservatives from all over the Provinoe met
Berlin, Oct. 0.��� Today's developments in the trial of persons charged
with gambling at the Club Harniloeu,
indioate that the special commissioner
who was entrusted to work up the
prosecution was wholly unfit for the
task. He allowed tho worst offenders
to escape. Three of the defendants will be acquitted of he charge of
fradulent practices. Emperor William,
it is reported on good authority, will
issue another anti-gamhiiug decree,
and will also punish superior officers
whose regiments have disregarded his
repeated orders against luxurious living on the part of officers. The press,
in commenting upon tho trial, uniformly deplores the rottonuoBB existing
in the highest fashionable oircles in
Berlin.
Tho PoBt semi-officially sayH drastic
measures are required, and the Voer-
waertB aserts that the case is a typical
one. The Reichsoodt says: "What
kind of youth is this wasting its sub-
Btances aud morality On gambling,
horses and women, then bragging of
its honor and expecting afterwards to
become pillars of the state and religion?"
THE AFRICAN WAR NEWS
denly   left   Durban toibiy for   Delagoa
Bay.
Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman Says There
is Still a Chance for Negotiations.
IN THE OPILNION OF A CIVIL ENGINEER
The War Would be of Short Duration, Resulting in the
Capture of Pretoria.���Boers not so Good Fighters as They Were Years Ago.
Loudon, Oct. 6. -Sir Henry Camp-
bell-Bannnerman, speaking at Maidstone today at a luncheon especially
arranged to givo the leader of the Opposition in the House of Commons an
opportunity of expressing the view of
offi dal Liberalism regarding the
Transvaal crisis, said that neither side
had shut the door upon further negotiations.
"Great Britain," he continued,
"has not made her demands as a
suzerain power, bnt in virtue of international law, and as the power responsible for the well-being of South j
Afrioa. If the Boer Government has
refused the reasonable requests in the
despatch of the Secretary of State foi
the Colonies on Sept. 8th, through
l'eur and suspicion regarding a possible attack upon their independence,
the speeches of the Duke of Devon
shire, Lord President of the Council of
Ministers, and Sir Matthew White
Ridley, Secretary of State for the
Home Department, constitute assurances which ought to extinguish suspicion and fear. These speeches are
quite as authoritative as any despatches, and bind the honor of the Government and the country. They ought to
open the way to an agreement. Party
interests must stand aside at this juncture, as well as the reputations of the
Ministers. I do not believe that diplomacy has said its last word, although
the country is on the brink of war. It
is a remarkable thing that when the
quesiiou is aBked, what are we going
to war about?
Brisbane, Oct. 6.���Great surprise
aud dissatsfaction an expressed in
financial and political circles here at
the news that tho British War Office
has placed large orders for canned
meats in the United States. As a matter of fact, tbo Queensland cancers,
anticipating a large demand, had prepared increased stocks, Which will now
possibly be drug on their hands.
Johannesburg, Oot. fi.���The Government is ejecting thousands of Kaffir
miners from the Rand and sending
them into the northern districts of
Transvaal to avoid the dauger of a collision with the whites in tbe event of
war. The Irish corps supporting the
Boers has started for the frontier.
New York, Oct. fl.���Tho Tribune
publishes the following from its Paris
correspondent:
"Mr. John Hays Hammond, the
American oivil engineer conneoted
with leading. South Afrioan mining
companies, who returned from the
Cape two months ago, is now passing
a few days at Paris., The appreciation of the situation in tho Transvaal
expressed by Mr. Hammond in conversation with The Tribune corespondent
is of interest as showing how war
with the Boers is regarded by an observant representative American, enjoying the advantage of unsurpassed
knowledge of aots, enabling bim to
thoroughly grasp the situation. As to
the justice of the war, Mr. Hammond
did not wish to express an opinion ;
but when asked whether the war
would be a short or a long one, said it
will be a short war, ending with the
capture of Pretoria, after whioh the
Boers will recognize the futility of
further fighting. Tho Boers today are
not as formidable fighters as they were
fifteen years ago; for example, their
enormous advantage iu markmanship
over the British troops no longer exists, because game, to an extent, has
disappeared. The Boers have no experience in shooting at moving objects.
A few old troopers are still good shots,
but they aro fast dying out. Moreover,
the British Lee-Motford rifle, wi>h iu
remarkably flat tajectory, puts Tommy
Atkins on equality with the Boers, so
far as markmanship is concnerned.
"Biased friends of the Boers," continued Mr. Hammond, "deluded them
into the belief that Great Britain
would not resort to war iu any event,
and unfortunately thereby provoked a
spirit of opposition to the British de-
mauds, resulting in the present diplomatic impass, which I fear makes war
ineviable. Encouraged by the present
weakness of the British garrison, the
Boers evidently hope to occupy strategic positions, and by rapidly assuming the offensive to forestall the British army."
Mr. Hjiuti.ancl think* there is no
danger of the conflict developing into
a war of races, because the Boers, es-
peoiallv the generation now attaining
manhood, have commercial instincts
and are fond of making money. They
are altogether more enlightened than
the old doppers with their dog-in-the-
manger exclusiveness. Mr. Hammond
feels confident that both nations will
have reason to respect each other more
after a war.
London, Oct. fi.���Addressing n peooo
meeting at Carnavon this evening Mr.
J. Morley asked the country to realize
the predicament to whioh it had been
brought by unhappy diplomacy, and
the belamite couuBels of the war press
and the war party. "If," said Mr.
Morley, "President Kruger has accepted the franchise proposal of September 8th with reliance upon the convention of 1884, he would have been
planted behind diplomatic entrenchments which by fair and reasonable
means could not have beon forced.
Even ater the refusal there was room
for a friendly settlement, but just as
the Transvaal made a mistake, our
Government capped it by withdrawing
the franchise proposals."
Mr. Morley dwelt upon the moderation nnd reasonableness of the receut
speech of the Duke of Devonshire,
which had proved that Great Britain
did not desire to interfere with the
Transvaal's independence. The speaker
said he had alwuvs picssod the urgency
of the Transvaal meeting Great Britain half way. He regretted the withdrawal of the Ave yearB franchise, but
condemed Great Britain now for abolishing tbe franchise,which had hitherto been the foundation of the Government policy. He dwelt upon the eventual danger of having at their back as
stragetic post as the Cape,a dissatisfied
population, held down by force of arms,
and said he failed to see why the
Transvaal and Great Britain wore nn-
ahlc to come to terms. Mr. Morley
spoke derisively of the talk of a pan-
Afrikander conspiracy in South Africa.
London, Oct. 7.���A private message
from a high offioial in Pretoria, in relying to a friend in Loudon, says:
"We do not want any guarantee of independence. We stick to the London
convention. Wo have lost faith in
British statesmen, and have nothing
more to say."
Mining shares had quite a boom In
the street today, juwing to the fact that
the Portuguese Government had asked
Great Britain to protect its frontier.
Rand mines were nearly two points
above closing figures, and others from
oue-qnarter to three-quarters.
There has been almost a complete
dearth of news from South Africa
today. The few dispathes roceived
recording military movements at various points all tend to confirm the belief that President Kruger will restrain
auy forward movements by the Boers
unless they are fired upon or war is
declared.
It is stated that Right Hon. Harry
Escomb. former President of Natal, is
going to Pretoria in the interest of
peace.
Her Majesty's Ship Philomel sud
Johannesburg, Oct. 11.���Thousands of
natives have invaded the town,and today the authorities decided to march I
them under escort out of tbe country.
Last night two natives entered a clothing store, kupt hy a Jew, and stabbed
tbe proprietor in the neck,severing his
windpipe. Tbe Jewish storekeepers in
the East Rand havo b.'en murdered
by natives and the natives are raiding
all the places where they think liquor
is stored.
The war commission, actiug under
the Government instructions, will toj
day issue an advice to storekeepers to
remove the barricades they have erected, on tho ground that the Government's guarantee of protection ought
to be sufficient.
KNIGHTS OF NELSON
KULE TBE TOWN
London, Oct. ().���Advices from Al-
dershot convey tbe interesting information that General Sir Redvers
Buller, who is tj assume the chief
command of the British forces in
South Africa, is opposed to a large
number of war correspondents with
his forces, and wishes to limit the correspondents to 12 representatives of
the leading British, Indian aud Colonial agencies and newspapers, increasing tbe number ta provide for foreign
correspondents.
A foreign dispatch from Perth Cape,
West Australia, aanounces that the
Government of the colony has decided
to dispatch a West Australian contingent to the Cape.
General Sir Redvers Buller arrived
at Balmoral castle tonight as the guest
of Queen Victoria, to bid her farewell
on his departure for  South   Africa.
Rt. Hon. Sir George Trevelyan,
speaking at Halifax. Yorkshire, said
he believed Mr. Chamberlain had made
a terrible mistake in rejecting President Kruger's offer of a five years'
franchise, but thought war uiis'ht yet
be avoided if a mediator should be sent
to the Cnpe.
The mysterious visit of Count Mora-
vieff, the RuBsian rainitser of foreign
affairs, to San Sebastian,where he saw
the Queen Regent and the King of
Spain, aud had a long couforence with
Senor Silvela, the Spanish Premier,
occupies political minds. Prom Spain
Count Muravloff  will  go to  Paris.
Russia's attitude in the Transvaal
matter is commou knowledge. Germany is officially neutral, but Emperor
William's famous telegram to President Kruger is not forgotten, and this,
added to Fiance's bitterness during the
Pashoda affair, and Spain's resentment
of England's attitude during the
Hispauo-American war, sets tbe people
asking what the motives fo> Couni
Mnravieff's tour are. No answer can be
given. This oouutry has never yet
gone into a great war in such a state
of uncertainty. From patriotic motives
Liberals cannot aud should not embarrass the Government, but the time for
free speaking will come bye and bye.
At present our interests, tho part v, reputation of the Ministeis and our estimate of the conduct of the government
roust all stand aside, us the only thing
that matters is the question of peace
or war."
Pointing out the absurdity of going
into a war for a differnce of two years
in the opposing franchise proposal, Sir
Henry Campbell-Bannerman declared
that the claim ot suzerainty has been
finally exploded by Sir William Vernon Harcourt and Sir Edward Clark.
"It wus an evil day," he continued,
"when this claim was dug from the
grave in which it was decently buried
iu 1884 hy tho wise and experienced
men who then conducted British
alfairs, the mon who buried it because
they knew it was devoid of efficacy
and a fruitless soucro of difficulty. I
believe the country has coufoundsd
the word suzerainty, wliich is valueless, with the great fact which is essential and cardinal. Tho predominant
supremacy paramount, or whatever
you may wish to call it, of British
power in South Africa, which is In-
dispuatable and founded upoii the necessary facts of the situation.''
RUMORS NOT BELIEVED.
Louden, Oot. II.���The report circulated iu Vienna today that Prinru
George of Greece is betrothed to tho
Priuoess Viotoiia, daughter of the
Prince of Wales, is considered bore
simply a revival of tbe often deDied
rumor of the engaement.
BURIED BY FALLING ROCK
The Knights of Pythias Have
Nelson Under Control.
RECEIVED   THE   BEST.
The Entertainment Given Under the Aus
piceB of the Knights of Pythias
a Full Success.
With the Hall Miues Smelter band
at their head, a large contingent of the
K. of P. 's of Nelson and adjoining
camps left the Castle Hall at 8 o'clock
sharp to march to the Opera Houro to
witness tho performance of the play of
Damon aud Pythias. The play was,
in a pecuniary sense, a most successful one. The balance of it is to be
recorded.
Promptly on time at 7 :45 last night
the Smeller band filed into the street
at the foot of the hall where tbe K. of
P. 's hold their weekly sessions, and
with a blast of the bogle,the Uniform
Rank of the Knights filed out of the
Castle Hall and fell iu behind tho
hand with adouulequick step and from
there marched to the Nelson Opera
House. The stieets were lined with
people, all anxious to see such a body
of Kuights parade. The occasion for
all of this was the production by the
R. E. French Company of the drama
entitled Damon aud Pythias."
A magnificent crowd greeted tbe
company when they appeared upon the
stage iu the first act, ur.d the greeting
was one of which uny company might
be pioimd. The company gave entire
satisfaction to nil. That is a very
tame expression of tho real truth of
the real work, Without specifying the
different participants in the play, who
ull accredited themselves worthilv.it is
sufficient to say that after the presentation was finished, Mr. French
himseif, and his troupe through him,
teceivod high praise for the excellent
rendition of tho play.
The Miner representative who was
present noticed a great many prominent people iu the audience. Tbe
lionse was crowded, and from all out-
side appearances tho attendants were
acre than satisli d,
The march from the Castle Hall to
the Ope-a House was one grand ovation. Citizens assembled on both sides
of tho street six deep nnd applauded
every siep that was made, even when
the Miner representative stepped in
five inches of mud.
The play of Damon and Pythias was
presented by request of the Knights of
Pythias iu the Kootenay district.
Numerous outside visiting brethren
witnessed the play. Without giving
any individual opinion, The Miner is
content to recoid the facts, and also
takes a pride in so doing.
Grand Master Welsh for B. C��� I. O.
O. F., was present as a guest of the
company and the local lodge of K of
f"s. He expressed himself during tho
entertainment to B Miner representative as being surprised at the ability
with which the drama was presented
as a K. of P. entertainment. It is
not within tho province of this criticism to designate any particular person us being supcrlativ t in his part,
suffice it to say that the play could not
have been presented by nuyoue unless
it had been practiced especially for it.
Tho rendition mot with the universal
approval of everyone present. Members
of outside camps were repiesented and
they universally spoke higrly of the
performance. Althgether it was a credit
to the lodge of Nelson K. of P's. Tbe
members of tho lodge desire to express
through the columns of the Miner
their appreciation to Mr. French and
company and to their many friends

camps,

HARD HIT.
Tbe Miner would lie very sorry to
represent the conditions in the Kootenay s to be worse than they are. But
to deny the fact that the mining industry throughout this poition of the
Province has been seriouly injured by
the legislation of the last session
would be as foolish as to dispute the
evistence of the equator There is considerable activity in many sections:
that is known and freely admitted,
aud it would be strange if there were
not. New mining prospects are being
developed, for the reason that the owners cannot afford to shu�� down. Tho
initial stages of the industry are not so
entirely discouraged that they have
been or will be abandoned. No one has
ever olaimed that the mines are silent
and deserted. The prospector is still
active, and the small owner continues
his development. The sound of the
pick and the drill is still heard on the
hills. All is not devastation by any
means, aud no one has ever said that
it is.
But to dispute that the effect of the
Eight-Hour law has been extremely
prejudicial to the mining industry generally is folly run wild. The Slocan is
the oldest mining district; in comparison with the others it can be said to
have lieen developed. It has producing mines that have been shippers
for years. Without an exception these
are either closed down or their production reduced to the vanishing point.
That is due to the Eight-Hour law. It
is the mines more than the prospects
that have been hit by it, and it is the
effect on the mines that is paralysing
the general trade of the country. The
exploiting of prospects gives an apppar
auce of activity, bn' it is the effect on
the production that tells. That is
where tbe law is proving so disastrous.
Rossland is cited as an example of nn-
dimished activity. The conditions at
Roaslaud are and always have been
exceptional; but even from Rossland
come mutterings of impatience and
discontent, and before many weeks the
same baneful influence will he visible
there. Tbe Boundary country, the
Lardeau, Windermere, and other dis
tiints are all new, and all art in the
early stages of development. In these
that influence could not make itself so
manifest.
The mining industry is not wholly
stagnant, but we all know to our cost
that it has been hard hit. Admitting, however, that there are signs
of activity eveiywbere, do we ever
stop to think how much better tho
conditions would be if there had been
no disturbance of the relations between
the mine owners and the miners? The
state of affairs might be worse, no
doubt, bad as il is: but how much better it might hsv been, ii the Legislature bad kept off its meddling hands !
The absolute loss is heavy, but losing
what might have been gained is worse
still.
The   ignorance   and   stupidity   that
oould discover  uny sort of  comparison
between a strike on a railway and   the
situation in respect  to the  mining industry in Kootenay are   truly colossal.
One could not   conceive them   if  they
wore not   thrust   into our faces by the
unhappy victim   of  them.    Mr. Houston's paper seriously   arguis   that   the
mine  managers  are not business men,
because they will  not   do as the O. P.
R. officials  are  expected   to do iu the
case of  tho striking shop men.    These
ofilnials do  not  hold themselves aloof,
but  go out and meet   the men and adjust   their   differences.     Very  likely,
for the good reason   that   they   must.
The   O, P. R. Company   are   common
carriers,    operating    under   a    public
charter. They cannot shut down with-
ont   violating   their   agreement  with
the public, and if   they   were to do so
they would be brought up with a sharp
turn   by   the   Government and Parliament of tho Dominion.   The mines are
the   private   property of   the owners,
who have indisputable liberty to work
them or not, as   they please.    There is
no  public  responsibility cr obligation
in   connection   with   them, any more
than there is in the   rolHtions between
Mr. Houston   and the employes of  his
office.    If  his  paper naderstood these
things better it would   not   be making
such atrocious blunders.
The   Rossland   Miner   chuckloB over
the  temporary  check to   the C. P. R.
in connection with that Republic
trsffle, nnd observes that it is administered by the Canadian born Mr. Hill,
who is now an American. But it does
not remark ou the fact that tbJ other
party to the fight, Mr shaughnessy, is
an American born Canadian. The two
peoples are getting si mixed that in a
few years more it will be difficult tt
distinguish thorn excepting by the flags
they fly.
THE  FLAG RESTORED.
Dallas, Tex., Oct. U.���The tattered
battle flag of Terry's Texas Rangers
was today restored to the remnant of
the gallant confederate band, the ceremonies taking place at the auditorium
at the fan grounds. Governor Mount,
in an impressive speech before a large
assemblage.'presented the flag to Governor Bayers, who in turn presented it
to Hon. James Miller, president of tbe
association of Terry's Rangers. Gr(��t
enthusiasm was manifested during tbe
proceedings. The flag is an interesting
relic. The Rangers claim it was never
captured, but that it was lost while
they were iu retreat. The Indianuns,
however, assert that it fell into their
regiment's hands during the' heat of
battle. Terry's Rangers formed one of
the most famous regiments of tbe war

of all kinds accurately prepared with. . .

BOUND THE WORLD
AN ADVESTUROtJSlElP BY A YOUNG
NOVA SOOTIAN.
Kail Oreelman's Itinerary  for 4is Pro-
jecte    Cycle   Tour   Round
the World.
Making the tour ot tho world fin-
various reasons is now-a-days by no
menus an unheard-of feat. Whether or
no the fashion was eec by Jules Verne's
famous bonk, "Round the World In
Eighty Days," is uncertain, but or re-
cent years several have attempted the
journey by m'-nns the reverse of ordinary. Home liave started out for u
liet, witlmot a cent in their pockets,
and some have started to walk, where
walking is possible, and several have
succeeded, The latest adventurer of
this class is Mr. Karl M. Oreelman, of
Truro, Nova Scotia, who has just arrived in Nelson. Mr. Oreelman has
started ont to make the tour of tho
world on his wheel, wheeling wherever wheeling is possible. He left Trn
ro Inst May, and since thpn has ridden
pome U,000 miles and has walked about
500. Ho came west via Now Brans
wick, Qnebec, Ontario, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois. Wisconsin, Minnesota,
North Dakota, Manttoba and the
Northwest. Territories. From here he
goes to Rossland, and will probably
proceed thence to the coast via the
Boundary country and Pentictou.
From Vancouver ho intends to cycle
down to San Francisco, whore he will
ship to Japan. After crossing Japan
on his wheel,ho will proceed to S'liitig-
liai, and thence to Hong Kong, where
he will take ship for Manila. From
Manila he intends to sail to Australia
and Now Zealand by way of Borneo,
and, after riding across the Australasian continent, his next objective point
is Capo Town. Then comes the most
ambitions part of his journey, which
is nothing less than a proposal to proceed overland direct to Khartoum.
Mr. Oreelman appreciates the difficulty in his path, and if tliey prove insurmountable will go round to Cairo
by sua, but he is nevertheless determined to make the attempt. Cairo
'once reached, it will be comparatively
easy sailing, as he intends then to
traverse Italy and Switzerland, and,
after a trip through France and Ger
many, to finish his journey, bar the
homeward voyage, in England.
Though without serious accident,
Mr. Oreelman's trip aoross the prairie
country has not been devoid uf those
nciilents almost inseparable from a
journey across a strange country. He
has he in fortunate, so far, in not having had to sleep out, bnt on sei-eral
occasions be lost his way and came
near putting in a night on tho "bald-
headed*' prairie amid most unpleasant
surroundings. Once, on leaving Chaplain, a station about 60 miles this side
of Moose Jaw, ho took a trail which
closely follow 'd the railway track,
whioh it crossed aud reorossud at intervals. Late in the afternoon he was
riding along at tori speed, exporting
momentarily to catch sight of the
track, when a heavy sti rm of thunder,
hail and lightning came on. He pressed on, but there was iiotltiim in view
hut prairie At last ha met a rancher,
whn informed him he was tweutv-the
miles north of the traok. By this time
it was dark and lie was glad lo put up
for the night with the hospitable
rancher,finding his way buck next day.
Mr. Oreelman is in the best of
health, and is quite confident of successfully enmplotiug his trip, which he
expeotn will extend over about four
years.

A SECOND   RIFLE COMPANY.
It has been decided to form a second
company of militia in Nelson, and the
enrollment list is now opou. Anyone
wishing to join oan apply to Lieutenant Beer at the Nelson Hardware Company or any of tho non-com missioned

There will be n' church parade of

THE INTERNATIONAL RACERS.
Columbia  Taken to  Bay Ridge���Prospects Good for Today's Race.
New York, Oot. 6.���This has been a
day of rest on board the international
racers Tho Columbia was towed from
Sandy Hook to tho Bay Ridge to get
her out of any danger in a northeaster.
Shamrock remained at anchorage, her
people willing to take chances. The
wind blow up pretty fresh, hut there
was nothing that threatened harm to
the yacht so woll protected by the
tender and tugB, to say nothing of tho
powerul Erin.
The feeling on both sideB is one of
confidence. Mr. Iselin thinks he will
win; Sii Thomas Lipton has a nice
littlo corner in tho Erin already fitted
up for the cup. The public is in doubt,
it must be said, and there is a feeling
of indecision among expert yachtsmen.
The two days of driting have furnished almost nothing on which to base an
opinion. They seemed, however, to
treugtheu the belief that the Shamrock is a thoroughly dangerous proposition. Those who have watched them
the most say they are firm in the be
lief that there is little to choose be-
twocn them in a drift. Twice in the
two days of racing there have been
times< when both boats were sailing
under exactly similar conditions, for
an hour at tho start Tuesday and for a
like length of time after the start on
Thursday. Both were sailing dead
before a light wind with the same
spread of canvas. On Tuesday (he
Shamrock drew away once. On Thursday the Columhia drew away.
It now looks as though it was a race
to a finish.
At sundown the wind was blowing
hard from the north. The weather
was clearing, and this was a good sign
of a pretty bard northwesterly gale in
the morning. If it comes, the world
will see tho greatest struggle for the
yachting supremacy iu the history of
international racing.
Gnllilea, N. J., Oct. ��.���The observatory at Gallilee reports the following :
The wind tonight is north, northwest,
with a heavy sea running The indications an- that there will be a fresh
wind at tho commenoemout of the race
tomorrow, also a heavy sea, but Hint
the sea will go djwn as tho race proceeds.
New York, Oot. (i ���At 10 o'clock
tonight reports v ere received from
Long Island to the eifeot that the wind
is moderating. At the same hour
Sandy Hook reports; "Wind still blowing at the rato of 112 miles an hour."

A Boise  Bank  Defrauded of a  Large
Bum  of  Money.
Boise, Idaho, Oot. 0.-A forgery has
jnst come to light hero which is certainly the most clever ever perpetrated
in this state, and the scheme of which
is said by local bankers to lie entirely
new.
Tne victim of the forgery is the
First National Bank of Pocatollo,
which loses $(1i"i0.
Briefly told the story is as follows:
A man calling himself 'Jinnies F.
Tnppen called at the law firm of
Winters & Guhen, at Poeatello. He
told them that he had been in business
with bis brother, George H. Tuppnn,
at a point about -10 miles from this
city. Thev had disagreed and he
wished to get a settlement. He was
willing to take |850 for his interest,
and wished the bank to take the matter up with his brother for him. They
wrote to his brother at Nampa.
Tuppon left Poeatello, ostensibly to
bo to Butte, but really coming to
Nampa, where he secured the lo'ter
addressed to the supnosed brothor. As
George H. Tnppen the man then con-
biiI ed Wyinnn & Wymaii, attorneys of
this city, exhibiting the letter from
Winters'* Guhen. He said he was
willing to give $050 in cash and a note
for $200,and asked Mr.Wyman to draw
up tho necessary papers, which was
done. Ho also requested that they n-
fer him to an attorney at Pooatello.
They recommended F. S. Deitnch.
Tho fellow managed to purloin one of
Wymaii & Wyman's letter heads. On
this he wrote n letter in the name of
Wvmiin & Wymau to Mr. Deitnch,
enclosing a cheek for *050 and a note
for *200 Mr. Deitrich was asked to
see Winters & Guhen and settle the
nutter Tho man thou posted back to
Poeatello, where he again appeared as
Charles F. Tuppen. The matter was
arranged and the check and note turn-
i���d over to him.   Tho  check bore   the
forged certification of the assistant
cashier, of the Boise City National
bank on which it was drawn.
Winters & Guhen politely identified
the fellow to the Poeatello Dank, which
cashed the cueck.
it turns out that this man operated
in California under the name of Horace G. Window, and iu Montana.

Exclaimed an apparently refined lady as she entered our store
and took a sent by the counter���and I'm looking for a, reliable
place to deal. I am not at all acquainted with the Western
prices and have been recommended to come here, where I
would receive honest treatment. This is M. DesBrieay's isn't
it? The clerk informed her that it was. Then she proceeded,
���5 lbs. t* a, !i lbs. CofTee, 1 box Paterson's Cream Koda Biscuits, etc., etc., too numerous to mention.

MINING NEWS.     ��
Underground work wns recommenced
yesterday in the California,alter a suspension of about two years, says the
Rossland Record, .lay P. Graves, representing the Miner-Graves interests,
now in control of the compauy, has
made all the arrangements for finding
out what the property contains, and he
BOW hus about ten men at work there
on the surface and iu the tunnel.
"The company has all the money
necessary for developing the property
thoroughly, and we mean to make a
mine of it if suoh a thing be possible, " said Mr. Graves today before
leaving for Spokane.
"Until our new power plant is in
sbapo we shall continue work in the
tunnel,and two shifts are now at work
there. It is in 220 feet, and we will
drive it on indefinitely. The surface
crow is now engaged in grading for
the new compressor building and hoist
house. The present shaft in down 50
feet aud we will continue it in two-
compartment size.
"The compressor will be of 10-drill
capacity, and of the Rand duplex-
compound type. It will be operated by
an electric motor, as our experience
with electricity on the Mascot has been
satisfactory. The entire capacity of
the compressor will be available for
drills, as the hoist will be worked bv a
separate motor, and an electric sinking pump will probably be used. 1
think that the new machinery should
all be in operation by the first of  next
! The are quite a number of graduates
from the Gambor.riie School of Mines
in Nelson and its vicinity looking out
for work, says the B. C. Mining Record. Gradually they drop into billets,
and they all seem ready and willing to
take auytbiug that turns up. One does
not know what they expected to find,
but it would be well that others who
may be following them shonld learn
that there are nut any mines here
lying agape for managers.
...
The  contraot for driving a crosscut
tunnel on  the LaBt Obance  mine on
Toad   Mountain   has   let   to   Mr.   P.
Hawke, who starts work today.
...
One of the moat important deals in
mining property iu the St. Mary's
couutry was made a fow days ago,
when George Urquhart gave a bond on
his prooerties situated on the west
fork of the St. Mary's, four miles south
of Sawyer's pass, to Thomas G. Holt,
of Vancouver. The consideration was
180,000, ouyablo as follows: Five thousand dollars on March 12, 1900; $10,0110
September 12, and $15,000 March 15,
1001. According to the terms of the
bond, work must commence on or before the 15th clay of October, 1899, and
to be continued until the hrst payment
is made, ou the 12th of March, 1900.
The property consists of the Wei
come, Rumside and Forest mining
claims.
Not much is known regarding these
properties, nlthough some weeks ago
it was reported that a hi* strike had
been made on one of the claims, and
that a rich body of copper liyrite over
200 feet wide had been uncovered, and
later this report was confirmed.
From what can be learned there is a
mineral belt of great extent in that
section, while in most instances the
ore is of low grade, still there is sufficient quantity to warrant further development. That entire section will
become available as soon as a railroad
is built up the St. Mary's.
be constructed of wood. Whatever
may be said in favor of iron vessels for
ocean travel, there ai" many advantages thut they lose when it comes to
the woollen vessels which ply along
the coast. In the first place the wooden vessels nan be insured very much
more cheaply and that is an item of
considerable importance wheu it comes
to paying the high rates that are in
vogue along the coast.
"It is just acquestion of time, you
know," said a shipping man, "when
the turn of every boat to be wrecked
will come in those northern waters.''

ANOTHER NEW STEAMER.
Companion Ship to the Humboldt Will
Bo Built ThiB Winter.
While Vancouver is talking of building two steamers for the northern
busiuess, the owners of the steamer
Humboldt are making prepaiatious to
put another very fast boat on the
northern route iu tho spring, snys The
Vancouver World. The Humboldt
was built in California a couple of
years ago, in the county from which
she lakes bur name, and has hoen
a money making proposition ovor since.
Her owner is M. Knlish, who is intimately   connected   with   the   Alaska
steamship Company, and therefore he
run his boat in thi fast Hervice in connection with tho City of Seattle. The
new boat will be constructed on the
lines of the Humboldt, but with much
greater freight carrying oapaoity,
which should lie a point Ol consilium

steamers on the line from Vancouver.
The boat will also be constructed down
in Humboldt county, and will likewise
