that any nf tlio officers -will be found
severely censurable.
Admiral Dewey was today shown
dispatches announcing tho loss ol the
cruiser Charleston. Ho said:
"I am very sorry. The Charleston
was a pood ship, bnt if she had to be
lost I am glad at least that none of her
gallant officers aud orew share tier fate.
I am always interested iu those who
huve been under my command. It is a
treacherous roast where the Charleston
met her doom, one of the most treaoh
emus on the whole island   of Luzon."
ALL
SOME SEVERE FIGHTING.
Washington,Nov. 14.���Admiral Watson cables to tho navy department tho
following official report of the wreck
of tho cruiser Charleston :
"The Charleston was wrecked on an
unchartered coral reef three miles
northwest of Guianapak Rocks, north
coast of Luzon at 5 :30 on the morning
of Nov. 2. Everybody safely landed
ou Kainiguina Island with rilles and
two Colts. Tho natives were fiiendly.
McDonald made Liugaycn gnlf in a
sailing launch. When he left there
had beeu an opportunity for examination of the wreok. There was a northeast monsoon and a heavy sea was prevailing. He reports the ship struck
easily, aud then thumped violently.
The firo room compartment flooded
first. Tho water tight doors wero closed promptly, The ship lies settled aft,
the water one foot from the name, well
out of water iorward on an apparently very steep hank, ten days provisions and oue honored rations were
landed. Helena dispatched from Liugaycn by Oregon to Kaiuugniaua is
due today. Tho following was also received at the navy department from
Watson today:
"Manila, Nov. 14.���Escaped Spanish
prisoners at San Fabian report seeing
Gilmote, November 1, in Tarlac, with
five men all well. 1!�� crossed the
mountain from Bnlerin in May with
thirteen men. The looation of tho
other eight men is unknown. Havo
cabled 'Jong Kong for salvage for the
Charleston."
The Americans Capture Salinda After
a Bloody Assault.
London, Nov. 14.���Special dispatches
from Manila say seven Americans were
killed nnd^fifteen wounded in Wheaton's daybreak attack this morning on
tho town of Salinda, whioh was stubbornly defended. After a heavy firo
tho Americans charged and stormed the
works. Seventy seven dead Filipinos
were counted in the trenches.

AN EXPERT OPINION.
Washington, Nov. 14.���There is a
discrepancy iu tin date of the wreok
of tho Charleston as given in Admiral
Watson's message and in the pre��s riis-
patctie . Hi t>rol ,blo thai tho ��� -
enth instant it the eorreot date nd
that Watson's dispatch was contused in
transmission.
There was some surprise expressed
that so long a time had elapsed since
the wu'ck before news of tha fact
reached tho navy department. It appears, however, thnt this delay was
inevitable owing to the isolated position of the wreck. Kamaguiana iH-
lund is a small island lying about
north oi Appari, which is the most
northerly point of the Island of Luzon.
It is distant about 150 miles from
Lingayan gulf where aro stationed the
nearest warships of Watson's fleet.
Watson appears to havo noted at ouco
upon tho receipt of the news for he informed the navy department that ho
cabled Hong Kong to secure tho help
oi' experienced wreckers to proceed at
once to tho suouo of the wreok.
The uavjjlepartineiit has already a
constructor iu the person of Lieutenant
llo'uson who may be called upon to assume chatgo of the wrecking operations. A careful leading of the cable-
grain of Watson convinces tbe officials
that there is fair chance of saving the
Charleston. They say the name of the
ship is paintod about throe or four
feet bobw the raf.. This is an indication that the main dock is ahovo
water, which would make tho work of
lumping out the hull much easier.
If she is sottled down aft as reported
thero is less danger of injury to her
bottom by further pounding. Much
depends, however, on the weather, as
tho wreck lies in tho tuli sweep of the
monsoons which prevail at this season.
For tho safety of tho officers and crow
not tho slightest apprehension is felt.
Tho Helena must already have reach-
od the island, which Is about a days
run from l.ingay and with the Oregon
which followed closely, must have removed tho Charleston's crew several
days ago. As soon ns possible a court
of inquiry will be called to fix tho responsibility for the wrecking of the
ship.
This will follow irrespective of any
action of the navy department aud will
bo ordered by Watson. Should it ap'
pear it was caused by the negligence
of any of the Charleston's officers, a
court martial will follow tho Inquiry,
but in view of the exceedingly dangerous uharaoter   of tho north coast of
What D. J. M. Clement Thinks About
Oora Paul Kruger.
Moscow, Idaho, Nov. 14.���Among
tho many interesting nieu of affairs
who have come 'o Moscow in connection with important cases before the
present term of Federal Court there
is none whoso career has been so
crowded with events as has that of D.
J. M. Clement, who is rendering test-
timouy in the case of tho Bunker Hill
and Sullivan against tho Last Chance.
Born in Los Angeles, Cal., 44 years
ago, Mr. Clement has followed mines
from his boyhood and while girdling
the globe with his travels has gained
a familiarity with almost every treasure field it now affords. Tho mines
of Mexico, California nud the Pacific
Northwest afforded him early training, since which, in his queBt for
treasures, ho has traversed, alternately,
tbo ice and snow of Arctic legions
and the sun-scorched sands of southern
jlimes. Only lust summer ho was in
Siberia mid at the; sources of the
A moor and other great rivers tbat flow
in solitude from the icy regions of
Asiatic Russia. Early autumn found
him in Old Mexico, from wliich ho
now hails.
Bur tlm feature of Mr. Clement's
career whioh is of most, interest to the
public at present is his experience in
South Vfrion, especially ;>t Johiinnes
oi,iv, n. the . .11 f Oo Paul, where
he went from th,-. Coeur d'AIenes in
1898. Thero becoming associated wilh
Cecil Khodes, ke was a leader of
tho Uithiudei' element whoso efforts
for reform in the Transvaal Government culminated in Iho Jameson raid
and the imprisonment of Clement
a :d 04 of his compatriots ou a oharge
of high treason. However, after languishing through six weeks of uncertainty in a prisou at Pretoria, Cle-
meut gained his liberty through tbo
payment of a ransom of $10,001), anil in
the employment of Cecil Rhodes, has
sinco traveled over a large portion of
the globe visiting the gold fields of
Oeolgardie aud Kalgoorlle m Australia,
crossing Asia along the line of the
Trans-Siberian Kail way aud recently
iuspeetiug tho mines of Southern
Mexico and Central America.
He keeps close watch of the Transvaal war and is still an enthusiastic
Uitlander. His opinion of Com Paul
coincides with that of Bismarck, who
pronounced him the greatest diplomat
of the ago, but goes further and asserts him to be in many respects a tyrant from whom thero has iu the
Transvaal beeu thus far no appeal,
He says that Kruger, in appearance is
nn nr couth monstrosity, whose clothes
nowhere fit him, that ho has a voieo
like a bull and incessantly pulls smoke
aud spits tobacco without regard to
who or what may be about him.
Loudon, Nov. 14.���The Admiralty

laxity. It is asserted that tho censor ban.
ought to hnve suppressed tho story of
Father Mathews regarding the surrender at Nicholson's Nek, wliich, while
too vaguo to bo considered evideuoe,
must cause uneasiness. Tho feeling is
that until tho facts can bo ascertained
if would have been wiser not to circulate more gossip. The great delay on
South African cables, now amounting
practically to live days, and tho lack
of any deliuite news from Ladysmith,
gives rise to some Apprehension, which
is ouly relieved by the fact that no adverse advices have come from either
British or Boer sources. Nothing is
known as to the whereabouts of Gen-
eial Redvers Buller. H. M. S. Powerful has arrived at Simons' Bay from
Durban and begun to coal Tho cruiser will return to Durmni immediately

contempt for the Boer that they treated the' retirement as though it were

demanded that General Whito shall
immediately release tho supposed spy,
Nathan Marks, who is confined at
Ladysmith, coupling his demand with
a threat to execute six British officers.

Terrible Experiences of the Mormaid
in Northern Seas,
Victoirn, B. ('., Nov. 14.���Steamer
Alpha, of this oity, arrived this morning from Cape Nome, Alaska, with
about a hundred passengers. On the
down passage one of the saloon passengers, named Henry Field, died and
was butted at ieu. He was an mimar
ried man ami chiiih from Fergus Palls,
Minnesota, Be had been very snoooss-
I'u I in tbo gold fields, aud had a Hue
sack full of dust to show for his labor. He complained of cramps on the
night of the 7th, for which he was
treated with brandy and other stimulants, which appeared to relievo him.
hut he grew very weak and died two
days later.
The Alpha brought the iiist mate
and 113 of tho crew of tho whaling
Dark Mermaid, of New Bedford, Mass.,
which was left a wreck at Dutch harbor. The Mermaid sailed from San
Francisco on a whaling cruise to the
Arctic on March 2ti last, and after
eight months of dirty weather in the
far northern seas was wrecked in a
series of heavy gales encountered at the
close of October, While she was off
Fox island on October 'JO sho encountered au awful storm during which one
heavy sea tore away the bulwarks,
threw the look out man, Jack Keneely,
a married man of San Francisco, to
the deck with such terrific force that
he was instantly killed. On the afternoon of the next day, the storm abated
somewhat and water rapidly rising iu
the hold, thoy slarterl for Dutch harbor on the iJOth. Auother and more
furious storm arose and over twenty
barrels of whale oil were poured ont
in the effort to lessen the fury of the
seas. The foremast was torn loose,
aud both the staiboard and port boats
wero carried away. On tho 2nd instant they at last made the laud, mulling into a small harbor somejlistanco
from Dutch harbor. They made some
repairs, and the uext day sailed foi
Dutch harbor where the ship was abandoned, The Mermaid was built 46
years ago at New Bedford. Acoording
to those who returned this morning,
she was unseaworthy.
She had about DS tons of whalebone
and a similar amount of whale oil.
Her entile cargo, Including two
whales, was worth tbout *J30,000. It
was brought down on the Alpha and

Rossland, Nov. 14.���The Canadian
Pacific engineers who aro engaged In
matting a survey of the proposed line
from Rossland to the Velvet mine have
reached that property on Sophie Mountain, just north of Iho boundary liue.
They have managed^ lo get even a better grade than was generally supposed
would be possible. Tho total distance
from the War Eaglo switch at Rossland, where tbe line would start, is
just 15 miles, and it is estimated that
a oue per cent grade could be secured
to the summit of Sophie Mountain.
West of the summit, on the Sheep
Creek side, tbo descent ia somewhat
Htifl'or and a t% per cent, grade is estimated for that section of the work.
London, Nov. 14.���That General
While's relief is considered a matter of
pressing importance is again evidenced
by the satisfaction with which officials
heard of the arrival of the transport
Armenian at Capetown yesterday, a
OOnple of days beforo her time. The
non-arrival of her precious freight of

serious delay iu Geueral Methnen's

all probability the first arrival of Ilia!

they wero originally assigned to.
There is no doubt that Iho bombardment of Ladysmith has increased in
intensity during the last few days and,

"Secretary Hay has received the protocol under which will be arbitrated

THE ALASKA BOUNDARY.
Now that Lord Panncefoto has returned to Washington, it is thought
the Alaskan Boundary matter will he
taken up in earnest and a permanent
agreement reached. Such is the expression of a recent dispatch from the
United States capital. The question
lies Been pending for so long a time
that almost any settlement would he
welcomed. There will require to be
very substantial concessions from om
side or the other, however, before n
settlement of any kind can come within thp region of possibility. At pres
cut the parties aro so wide apart that
the case seems hopeless. The Washing
ton authorities refuse to aribtrale the
main point in dispute, and to cornpro
mise on all the cUinis they set up
would involve the surrender of import
ant material interests on the part of
Canada, whatever character tho compromise might take. For many rja-
sojs an early settlement is desirable
The very nature of tho dispute renders
it certain that as time goes on the
difficulties will increase. This is one
strong reason for immediate action.
Then the recent development in Yukon makes it highly important thai
Canada should learn as early as possible what aro her precise rights with
respect to coasting privileges. This is
a matter of especial interest to British Columbia, and if our Government
havo any influence in relation to it
they should impress upon the Canadian Commissioners the necessity that
exists for some sort of a settlement at
once.
On the face of it the  dispute   would
seom to bo a   very simple  affair.    Au
old treaty professes to define the boundary, hut different meanings arc attached to the wording of it.    Thero  ought
to  he  no  difficulty  here   ivhiob   two
Governments   inclined  to   a   fair and
honorable   settlement could not   overcome.    They could first agree on a tribunal of abritration, nad   then  decide
to leave to it the interpretation of  the
treaty,   binding   themselves   to  abide
by its judgment whatever it might be.
The United States   will   not   do   this,
however.    It claims that there are circumstances which put arbitration  out
of the question.    For   example, one of
tho    American    Commissioners,   Mr.
Foster, in a recent address maintained
that as far   back as   the   seventies the
United States had occupied the disputed territory with   its army; had estah
lished post offices and post routes, oris
torn houses, and Government and mis
sion   schools;    had   collected  customs
duty aud   patrolled   the  Lynn   Canal
had accepted tho allegiance of tho  In
dians and bad taken censuses, and had
exorcised other  rights  of so/ereignty,
all without a single protest on the pail
of   the Rritish or   Canadian   Governments.    In   addition   to all this,   two
considerable   towns,    Dyea   and fkni.-
way, have  giown   up   within  recent
years   under    ihe     protection   of   thi

with regard to the others it may he
stated that iu every instance of what
appeared to be occupation the Canadian authorities claim that a protest
was entered. These matters are men-
ioned as examples of the many points
iu dispute. Thoy reduce tho question
to one of mere bargaining, and in snch
cases the Americans want everything
their own way. If Lord Pauucefote
can prepare the ground for snoiessl'til
negotiations he will score a brilliant
success as the crowning achievement
of his diplomatic, careor.
that thj claim of British Columbia was
being considered. At present it is the
only one uot represented. The farthest
East. Quebec and the Maritime Provinces, have a most marked preponderance of Cabinet influence. Two important portfolios, Finance and Militia, are held by Nova Scotia; New
Brunswick has Railways and Canals,
and little Prince Edward Island, Marine and Fisheries. The big spending
Dopartmont of Public Works is held by
Quebec. The only portfolio of consequence in the considerable portion of
Canada west of Quebec is that of the
Interior, held by Manitoba. British
Columbia has nothing, great or small,
If il had, There is at least the probability that this Province would receive something approaching a fair
share of public expenditure, a share
somewhat in proportion to her contribution to the public revenue
An Ottawa dispatch says that Dr.
Borden is likely to retire from the
Government, and that his place "as a
Nova Scntian" will probably bo taken
by Mr. D. 0 Frasor. If Cabinet positions aro to go by  Provinces it is time
A BIG WINDFALL.
The City   is   Given *|8,288   Worth  of
Sewor   Pipe.
The Mayor yesterday received an
official order signed "P. Carter-Cot-
t6n," calling npon Turner, Beeton &
Co., to hand over to the city a consignment of sower pipe whichJiasbeen
lying at the Nelson ic Fort Sheppard
depot for the past three years. When
Mr.Olive Phillips Woolley was Provincial health officer, he induced tbe
Government of that day to vote an appropriation for the sewering of Nelson.
,md a consignment of vitrified pipe
costing ifil.'Joil !I0 was sent on to Nelson. This was in tbe winter of 18!)o.
Iu April following tho town was incorporated, but nothing appears to
have been done as to the sewer pipe,
which was consigned to Turner, Bee
ton & Co. The firm sold some $786.115
worth of the material, the greater portion of which was disposed of to tho
oity and the balance remained at tho
depot. During his recent visit to
Victoria City Clerk Straohan managed
to ferret out all the information with
referenoe to the consignment. He ascertained that the pipe had been duly
paid for and forwarded to Nelson to be
here used; that tho present Government laid no claim to it; that Turner,
Beeton & Co. were merely holding it
in trust for Nelson and that all that
was needed was the necessary order to
have it handed over. Mr. Straohan
pointsd out to the premier that had the
city not beon incorporated the Government would have been put to the
expense of laying the pipe, which
would have been] a considerable item
and that tho pipe having been purchased and sent to Nelson to improve
the sanitary condition of the place it
ought to be used for the purpose for
which it. was intended.
During Mr. Cotton's rocent visit to
Nelson he was waited upon hy the
Mayor on the snmo subject and as a result of Mr. Strachan's aud his worship's efforts, the order of yesterday
was written, it authorizes the council
ou behalf of the city, to take over the
sewer pipe freo of cost. Upon the production of the order Turner, Beeton ic
Co. issued the usual clearance certificate and refunded the $78(1.90���cash
received for pipe sold. This is a clear
gain to the city of $3,258, and the
mayor and city clerk aro to be congratulated upon their success in the
matter.

BIG CELEBRATION
ODD TALKS WITH OLD-TIMERS OF
NELSON.
Dominion  Day  Celebration in  the Year
1891-The First of the Series
Inaugurated.
g "I understand we will have lots oi
sport this winter," said a Miner re.
porter to nn old-tinier yesterday.
"Sport," exolaimed the individual
addressed, "Nelson was always a Rood
place for sport. I remember the first
Dominion Day tliiit was celebrated
hure. It was in 1891. Nelson wns not
niueli of a place then. I remember we
raised a subscription for the sports,
and out of the fund we cleared a part
of what is now Baker street for a race
course. In those davs Robert Lemon
had his store where Turner, Beeton'S
is now ; George Bigelow had his place
where the Bodega now is, and J. Fred
Home had his place of business near
the present Trigone office. These
wero the principal stores, with James
Gilker's clothing house and postofliee.
Well, as I wns saying we cleared the
course, and had a ureal day's fun. On
tha next day we all went to Ainsworth to celebrate, aud coming back
again we took np our own programme.
Wo had three days of it in Nelson.
Ou the 4th we had steeplechases. The
starting point was nbnut where Mr.
Beasley's oliioe (the 0. P, R.) is, and
the course was up as far as about
Hall street, down rowaids the lake
shore through the brush to <he bank,
then round est and through the ravine, over a trail and finishing up
about th" niitiiiie nf Ha er Btre t, Old
loan  n.nn    -   is   mou  t   ' -    rei,
and eanin in ��ell in front of the oinei
horse over the hurdles; but it \<as ruled that he passed the flag on the wrong
sidu, aud he was ruled out, An Indian
who rode barebacked was declared the
winner. The old man was very mad
at losing tha race, and wauted it run
over again, but tho Indian wouldn't.
In another of the events a hori-o was
taken clear out of the corral, and with
a rope halter wns mounted by an Indian. These were great races, nud you
should see the betting. Well wo would
up witb tho greased poll. A lot of the
bays tried it, but couldn't get half
way up. At last Bob McLeod hnd ago
at it. A fellow with a pole shoved him
np as fnr ns tho pole would go, then
another fellow with a longer pole took
u hand and pushed him up a bit further. Bob held on until still longer
poles were brought into play, aud be
was shoved to the top amidst cheers
and laughter. Yes, Nelson was always
a good place for sport, and 1 hopo it
will always   continue to be so."
WEDDING  BELLS.
The Marriage of II. F. McLean, Drug
gist, nt Choteau, Mont
At the hgme of Mrs. S. H Drake in
Choteau, Wednesday,occurred the happy
marriage nf two very popular young
people. The ceremony took place at
the hour of 12:30 when Rev. Alfred
Brown, of Anaconda, united in holy
bonds of matrimony Mr. H. F McLoau
and Miss Jennie Drake. Only relatives and a few intimate friends were
present. A bounteous spread was
served, nfter which Mr. aud Mrs. McLean took their departure by private
coiiveyaiico for Great Falls.
Tho groom was connected with the
McLean Mercantile Company during
its existence and spent about a year of
his time in Choteau as bookkeeper,
during wliich tii'io he made many
friends. Later ho went to Nelson, B.
0,, and started n drug store, where
he has n lucrative business.
The bride is the only daughter of
Mrs. H. H. Drake and for a number of
years hns resided in Choicnu. She is a
cultured and talented young woman,
having been highly educated In music
at a Boston conservatory. With such
attainments and i cheerful disposition
nhe has always been a welcome figure
in society. She will be greatly missed

WHY DO THEY DU IT!
Local Merchants Should Look lifitter
After Thoir Own Interests.
A pructioe on the part of certain eastern wbolesnle merchants has been
brought to the notice of The Miner,
which militates strongly against the
interests of IoohI business men. An
instance will sutiice to explain what is
meant.
Yesterday a carload of groceries,
consigned to a mining., company with
headquarters in Nelson, nrrivod horo.
The carload iu question was received
from a wholesale grocery firm of Hamilton, Ont., that has lnrge customers
hero among the local merchants, and,
to make -natters worso, tho goods
were delivered at the same price as
would have been charged local businoss
men.
It is, The Miner understands, a well
established principle of tho trado that
wholesale firms shall not attempt to cut
prices under their retail customers  In
the recognized field of the latter, nnd
the wholosnle houses located here
have always followed this rnle. Tho
practice haii not become general yet,
so far us can be learned,aud Nelson retailors should immediately take steps
to boyoot the offenders tbe next time
their travelers appear, It hwras impossible that the local merchauts can
be generally aware of this, or they
wonld not go on buying from a firm
guilty of such bad faith.
THE BOUNDARY COUNTRY.
Lively Times in Phoenix and Throughout the Boundary.
Mr. Robbins, representing the Dominion Copper Co., was in town yesterday. The company owns the Brooklyn,
Sternwinder, Idaho, Rawhide and
Montezuma claims in tbe Phoenix
camp���at least: all these properties are
in Phoenix with the exception of tho
Rawhide, which lies about live miles
to the eastward. There are two
shafts sunk,one of which is down some
1100 feet and the other 250 feet, and
machinery is heiug installed, including a 400 horse-power boiler and a compressor of 25 drill oapacity.
Spenking of the progress of the country, Mr. Robbins snid that railway
work was progressing satisfactorily.
The C. P.R. are laying switches to the
diferout mines in order to facilitate
shipping, and were doing good work
towards the development of the' country.
"People may talk as they please,"
said Mr. Robbins, "but I know of no
rirlway company on the continent
which is doing more to develop tbe
country than the 0. P, R. In Nevada,
for instance the old Central Pacific
Co., now the Southern Pacific, did
mtl'i i ��� help the mines or develop-
o. ;.t.    i .���!���     i Ens ���'   l Id     ii.
brunch lines to mining sections, and
the ore curried over their line wns paid
for at the highest rate they could abstract from tbe mining men. It bus
been the same iu Arizona. In California, on tbe other band, the policy of
tho Denver and Rio Grande line has
been to encourage the development of
the mines in every way, and such
doubtless is the policy of the O.P.B,"
-"Are they going ahead with tho
building of the smelters?" was asked
by Tho Miner's representative.
Mr. Bobbins replied iu the affirmative, At Greenwood the Mother Lode
smelter was progressing favorably. It
would have a capacity of about 800
tons per day, but this could easily be
increased should any big quantity of
custom work otter. Tho Grand Forks
smelter was also going up.
Speaking of Phoenix, Mr. Robbins
said that tho town was growing wonderfully. Ho left for the East in Juno
last, having laid out a site for a log-
house, which ho thought was going to
be a fairly pretentious building for the
place, but when he returned in August, ho found that eight other buildings had been erected, each and every
one of which were bettor than his, in
the itunicdinto neighborhood of his
rustic structure. In Phoenix they had
two telephone systems in operation and
a third wns being installed. They
had eight or nine hotels there, all doing a good business. Ho estimated that
thore were about ilOO men at work in
aud around Phoanix. Grand Forks
and Greenwood were also building up
fast, aud a movement was on foot to
build a tramway from tho latter city
to Phoenix. There was considerable
activity in mining.
"Does the eight-hour law affect you
over there V" asked the reporter.
"Oh yos," wns the reply, "I would
have fifty more men at work could I
get them even at the Rossland rate of
wages. In Rossland the power-drill

MINING NEWS.
X+�����+���������������������������������������������������������
Uanie runior is more than usually
bnsy at present with the mining affairs
nl' Rosslnad camp, both in the city, in
the east aud faraway England, says
the Rossland Miner.
There are several properties between
the Oolunibia-Kootenay on the east
and Hed Mountain about which the
rumors constantly cling. The Virginia, Idaho, Monte Oristo, Evening
Star and others are purchased or bonded according to the teller's fancy and
some queer stories that are certainly
new in Rossland croup into some of
tho English papers. It is said thnt the
War Eagle company, which bus been
spreading ont very quietly all over Rod
Mountain, would like very much to
aoquire the Idaho, the twin claim of
the Centre Star, and that negotiations
for its purchase from Mr. Oliver Durum have already progressed pretty fur.
When the Qooderham people first approached Mr. Durant about the Oentre
Star tbey were told that the property
was for sale���for two millions. They
thanked him kindly for the information aud withdrew only to return on
two different occasions later on for tho
same reply. Finally the purchasers
said that two millions was a fairly good
price for the two] properties, but they
would pay it seeing that Mr. Durant
was a poor mau. Mr. Durant, how-
ever.sai.t be was not selling the Idaho,
,iust the Centre Star. Then he was
asked to put a price on the Idaho and
that astute gentleman said the property was not in the market, and all
the mining world kuows that only the
Centre Star was sold and that the vendors got their original price. Mr. Durant was to have started work on the
Idaho this last June, but it was said ho
was too busy investing his Centre Star
money ; that he was not feeling rested
enough; that���and anyway no work
has been done and now runior has it
that tho big combination .nenlioned
will get tbe Idaho after all.
The flotation of the B. A. C. subsidiary companies is a probability not far
off. This will iuclude the Columbia-
Kootenay and tho East Ee Roi com -
pauies. The latter company, as
everybody knows, owns the Nickel
Plate and the Great Western, on both
of which a great deal of money has
been expended in the last 18 months,
and it is hinted that tbe acquisition of
the Virginia, the Monte Crisro or tbe
Evoniug Star, or all three properties,
would look veiy well in tbe prospectus.
The Virginia is mentioned iu some of
the English papers io hand us being a
vory valuable property, only requinuy
a little further development. It is further said thut vory close enquiries have
been made concerning the showings on
the Evening Star and Monte Cristo by
both the big corporations mentioned
and that a change of ownership all
over the face of Monte Cristo mountain
is on the "carpet.'' There seems some
foundation foi the stories that are going round and perhaps theie will be
some startling changes before the  year
is out.
*   *   ���
A property that will work all winter is the Torpedo. This property
which is situated near the Vancouver
Uroup, has had a large amount of
work done ou it this summer and has
one of tho best showings in the camp.
A tuuuel has been driven on tbe ledge
a distance of 170 feet and a line streak
of clean ore about five inches wide
has been encountered. The ore is a
heavy galena and assays 111:2 ounces in
silver to the ton. A cabin has been
erected, a good pack trail built to the
properly and tho winter supplies are
now being sout   up lo the mine.
At the Noonday mine three carloads
of ore are sacked aud hualing the oro
to our dock is to commence today.
The mine is in better shape today than
over, with large bodies of ore blocked
out and ready to stope. On the dump
is now accumulated neatly 2,000 tens
of concentrating or second class ore.
Twenty miners ate employed and this
force is to he increased soon.���Sil-

'twenty miles long, and 100 feet wide.
These creeks have been staked on tho
west side of the river: Dr.Blake, Bon-
heur, Ijhout, Story and Ida and Teuas
Gulch, and these on the east side:
Banner, Baldwin, Slate, Moonlight,
Fox, Kaizerook and others.
The best paying properties are on
Bonheur, where coarse gold is found
on the surface, some of the largest
pieces weighing as high as 80 cents.
There are also valuable beach dig
gings, four feet below the surface iu
the sand, us much as 43.50 a pan being
found. Five of tbe creeks running in
to tho Aucovikv which have been stak
ed show peculiar slate quart/, bearing
iron pyritles iu large quantities. The
diggings arc all shallow, running from
eighteen inches to five or six feet
doep.    The claims are 500 feot long.
Thirty people are in the district
eighteen or twenty of whom will spend
the winter there. The mining district
has been named Kanougok, with W
H. Lopp, a missionary sohool teacher
at Cape York, for recorder.
THE KuTZEBUE  DIGGINGS.
Many Locations Made���Also Valuable
Beach Claims.
Definite news from the new Cape
York district on the Kotzebue Peninsula of Alaska was brought to Seattle
by Williamy Penn Stanley, of Port-
laud, Me., who came down on the
steamer Cleveland from St. Michael,
says the P. I. Mr. Stanley tells of an
expedition of the steamer Mattie Far-
rington,which made a trip from Nome
to Cape York^nagjjg *h>. i'r,-' .,, r ymri

on the excursion. All the creeks are

KOOTENAY    BISHOPRIC.
Necessary     Diocesan       Arrangements
Made   at   the   Recent   Synod.
The Anglican synod at its meeting
in Vancouver last week carried a proposal which will, when supplemented
by certain necessary Provincial legislation under a private act in relation to
diocesan property trusts, enable the
Anglican churchmen of the upper
country to establish aud endow a new
bishopric of Kootenay to include the
Kootenays, the Okanogan and the
Boundary districts east of the 120tb
meridian. Tha carrying of the proposal into complete effect will create a
uow diocese as important aud populous
as the residuary seat of New Westminster and requiring an equal number of
clerical and lay workers. It will also
probably call for the raising by tho
liberality of churchmen of an endowment fund of at least $���'0,000, but this
is expected to be forthcoming In the
course of two or three years at most,
and perhaps even earlier.
In the meantime, the new Kootenay
diocese will be administered by a
svnod of its own under the presidency
of the bishop of New Westminster, aud
have an active separate existence ot
its own. Thero will thus, as it were,
bo followed���on lines of Anglican
church development���an example recently set in tbe establishment of a
sepaiate presbytery of Kootenay by the
Presbyterian communion to wlice

well merited tribute was paid in tbe
course of th" discussion in thn New
Westn inster synod
HOSPITAL BOARD MEETING.
The question of installing a heating
apparatus in the addition fn thi Kootenay Luke General Hospital was the
most important matter before the meeting of the board of tne Kootenay Lake
General Hospital yesterday afternoon,
Several bids were received and examined, and it was found that the apparatus intended would cost 60 per
cent, more than had been auticipiW-ed.
Somo suggestions were, however,
brought forward which promised to reduce tho sum needed to within tbo limits of tbe hospital's finances, and
Messi'3. W. A. Jowett, E. C. Miller
and F. W. Swanuell were appointed a
committee fo look further into the
matter, and witb power to act. The
contract will probably be let in the
eoursa of the next   two  or three days
Those present at tho meeting included the President, Judge Forin; vice-
president, Mr. W. A. Jowett; secretary, Mr. F. W. Swiuinell; treasurer,
M,i. W. W. Beer; Mesdames Kobertson
and J. Laing Stocks, and Messrs. O.E.
Miller and E. A. Crease.
THE CITY WHARF.
The city wharf is in a positively
dangerous condition. Tbe flooring is
worn down to half an inch in some
places, while in others whole planus
have given away nuder the pressure.
Here and there the teamsters have
laid an odd plunk to save their horses
from stepping into the holes. One of
those days thero will be loss of prnii-
ertv or life perhaps, owing to tho defective timbering, and tbe city will be
called upon to pay the damages. Something should be done, and that at
once, to render the wharf reasonably
safe.
FIREMEN'S SMOKER.
Tho Nelson fire brigade have made
arrangements for a smoker to be held
at the Opera House on Friday evening
next, A very enjoyable time is prom'
ised for all who atteud. Tho Smelter
Baud will discourse its best music, and
there will he club swinging, sparring,
singing and a variety of other entertainments while the spectators are
smoking the nipe of poaoe.
THE  RAILWAY WAR.
Passenger Rates to the East May Soon
Come Down.
The transcontinental tourist rate war
between the Great Northern, Northern
Pacific and Oregon Railway & Navigation Company, which has caused agitation among passenger agents all
along the lines, took another tumble
Saturday when Seattle brokers announced a rate of |32 to St. Paul and
$88 to Chicago, says tho Spokesman-
Review. It is claimed that even lower rates were quoted, but no tickets
were sold below the foregoing quotations. Passeuger agents ate out with
various statements, charging bad
faith against eaoh other, while many
people aro delaying the purchase of
tickets to eastern points in the hope of
more cutting by the  belligerent roads.
It is cluimed that the Great Northern has been selling tickets at Seattle
to brokers below the established prioe
for some time. This gave tbe brokers
a chance lo do a big business and
uow the other roads have met Ihe cut
and declare Ihey will go further and
pull rates down to bedrock. So fur
the first class rate lias not been touched, as this line of travel is light. The
first class rats  remains at $51.50.
Local ollices were besieged yesterday
by applicants for tickets at the reduced
rutes. Tho news of ihe cuts has received general ciicnlation, but so far the
local offices have received no offioial
notification of the reductions.

INDIANS GOING TO MEXICO.
Great Numbers Will Move When Paid
for Their Lands.
Fort Worth, Texas., Nov. 14.���W. J.
Lyons, immigration agent of the Republic of Mexico; J. H. Dick, secretary of the Ketowa Society of the
Cherokee Indians, and ex-chief clerk
of the Cherokee council and Judgo, J.
Drew, of Fort Gibson, I. T., are here
on business pertaining to the removal
of tbe Indians from tbe Indian territory. Socertary Dick said there would
be at least 35,000 or 40,000 Indians
who would eventually locate in Mexico, after this government had settled
with the Indians for their tribal property ; the value of tbo laud of the
Cherokee aud Crees being about $100,-
000,000. Ho said a commitieo \ ill soon
go to Washington to confer v. ith tho
