to Chamberlain.

General Sir William Fruueis Butler
us commander of the British forces In
South Africa, arrived here today, lie
was met hy obeeiiug thousands and
giveu a splendid reception.
AN INSULT TO BRITAIN.
Chamberlain Deolines to Make a Statement
Until After Meeting of Cabinet
Council���Situation Serious.
London, Sept. ll.���Mr. Chamberlain,
remained nt the foreign office nntil
shortly before midnight. He declined
to make a Btalemeut regarding the
Transvaal situation, but expressed a
desire to see a copy of the follow-ng
transcript of the Transvanl Government's reply issued by the Transvaal
agent iu Brnesols tonight, which was
furnished to him by the Associated
Press. In reply to the dispatoh of the
British Government, tha Transvaal
Government, on Saturday, handed to
the British agent at Pretoria a response
of which the folowmg is the purport:
The Government ot the South Africa
Republio regret that Groat Britain
is of opinion thut it is unable lo accept the proposals made hy the Transvaal dispatches of August 111 and 21,
by whioh the term for obtaining the
franchise was fixed at Hve years and
the representation of the Witwaters-
randt and district was included, the
Government regrets the nine inasmuch as it considers itself, to deduce
from the negotiations previous to its
formal proposals, that the latter wonld
be accept d by tho British Government In these conditions the Truns-
vaul considers its proposals are annulled and iiuds it necessary to submit
them to the Volksraad and the people
It remains of the opinion that its proposals are extremely 1.1. "al and more
than those presented by rhe British
High Commissioner nt Bloemfontein
It is also of the opinion that the eruditions attached to these proposals are
reasonable. The Transvaal never desired Great Britian to abandon any
rights possessed by virtue of the Louder, convention of 1884 or by virtue of
International law. The Transvaal
still hopes that these declarations will
lead to a good understanding andsn-
lntinn of the existing difficulties
With regard to Ihe question of suzerainty, the Transvaal Government refers to 'be dispatch of April Hi, 1808
and considers it unnecessary to repeat
that dispatch.
Tho reply then proceeds to say:
"The Transvaal Governmeut has already made known to the British agent
its objections to accepting the proposals contained in the British High
Commissioner's toleg'am of August 2,
suggesting the appoiniuent of delegates to draw up a report ou the last
electoral law voted by the Volksraad.
If the one sided examination referred
to iu the last British dispatch should
show that the existing electoral law
can be made eflicaoious the Transvaal
Government is ready to make a proposal to the Volksraad. With this object it is also disposed to furnish all
the information aud enlightenment
possible, but is of opinion that the result of such an inquiry, so far as regards appreciation of the law will be
of little value. Nevertheless, the Government is very desirous of satisfying
Great liriitain in tho matter of the
electoral law, and the representation
of the mining distriots."
The reply then refers to Mr. Chamberlain's proposals respecting a joint
inquiry and sayB: "Consulerng that
by these proposals, Great Britain does
not aim at any interference in the
affairs of the Transvaal, ami that this
actiou would uot be rugarded as a precedent, but bas solely''for its object to
ascertain whether the franchise law
fulfills its purpose, the Transvaal will
await the ulterior proposals nf Groat
Britain as to the eventual constitution
of such coinmissiion as well as the
place und time for the meeting.''
The Transvaal Government further
proposes at au early date, to send a reply to the letter of July 27, and expresses satisaotion that Great Britain
has declared a readiness to negotiate on
the question of a court of arbitration.
It says it would like to learn, however, whether the free state Burghers
would be admitted to such a court and
What would be the scone of tho couit's
discussion, it appearing to the Transvaal Government that the restrictions
impose will prevent the attainment of
the objeots aimen at. With regard to
the ulterior conference, the Transvaal
awaits the communications of Great
Britain. The Brussels agent of the
Iiansvaal olaims that in making its
recent proposals the Transvaal Government has acted on the advice of
[lie British agent in Pretoria, Mr.
Umyinghum Greene. Early this morning tho Colonial Office began to receive
the reply of the Transvaal Govornmant
direct. Mr. Chamberlain on being
again requested to roako a statement
declined to do so nntil after the oabi-
het council meeting Friday.
Durban, Natal. Sept. fl.��� A number
of natives are applying to the authorities for lioense to carry ossegias. A
relief commit'ee has been formed here
for the purpose of curing for refugees
from the Transvaal.
Loudon, Sept. 7.���The Cape Town
correspondent of The Daily Mail says
that three days ago, the Hon. J, H.
Hofmeyer, Afrikander loader iu Cape
Colony, telegraphed President Kru
ger warning him that unless he complied with certain specified conditions,
war wonld be inevitable. Mr. Kruger
replied, promising compliance. President Stein, of the Orange Free State,
is aUo urging President Kroger Recording to The Daily Mail correspondent to come to terms with Great
Britain.
Vancouver, Sept. 6.��� Major Holder,
Renter's representative here, fought
with the Boors in the eighties. He say
lhe Burghers are playing a waiting
game. They want to keep the Britishers from commencing hostilities til I
the bad season commences iu November when they will have an inestimable advantage over the troops of the
Empire. He reckons that Cere aro
10,000 Boers in the Transvaal,55,000 in
Cape Colony, 20,000 in the Orange
Kree Stale aud from 5,000 to 10,000 iu
Natnl. Of course, all those in Capo
Colony and Natal may not prove disloyal. A question of importance he
says is, "what arc the blacks waiting
to do?" There are two millions of
them.
Johannesburg, Kept (I,���At a meeting of the war commisson held at the
fiat today, a complete scheme was
drafted, it is said, for protecting and
provisioning lhe town in the event of
hostilities. Commander Volkjeen, of
the Transvaal forces, says tbat martial
law will be proclaimed immediately
on the receipt of an ultimatum from
Great Britain and a tribunal has been
established to assume the necessary
functions when the state of seige is
proclaimed
London, Sept. 7.-4 a. m.���Tbe Colonial Office were busy until after 3
o'clock this morniug. Dispatches
have tueii passing by speoial uiosseu-
ger between the Queen aud Lord Sal
islmry for the last few days. Tnere is
persistent rumor that in the event of
war, General Sir Evelyn Wood, Adjt. -
General of the forces, will have supreme command, Sir Redvern Bnller
having the field command. The Times
advises the Government to convoke

to vote the needed supplies, adding
that " A further loss of time may be
dangerous and humiliating."

IS PASSING AWAY
The Boundary Question Being Tamely Settled.
REPORTED AGREEMENT.
New York Paper Understands lhat the
Two Interested Governments Have
Come ti UnderstanfiDg,
New York, Sept. 8.���A special to
The Herald from Washington says:
Great Britain and the United States
bave practically agreed upon a temporary lino defining the boundary between
Alaska and Canada. Negotiations
now in progress relate only to minor
questions growing out of the definition
of the line.
One of the unsettled questions relates
to the status of minos owned by Americans whioh may lap over territory
which has been under the oontrj of
Canada. Representatives of American
mine owners say that it would be unfair to Amerioans if no provision
should be made for tbem in case their
property should lie half on the American and halt on the Cauadian side.
The prospective settlement of the
bonudary question is due to concessions made not onlv by Great Britain,
but by this Government alsi. Secretary Hay has not decided the matter
of excluding Canada from the Lynn
canal, but a port of entry on the Oanal
will be given should thu final setilo-
imriit fail to giv Canada a permanent
harbor.
Special Commissioner Kasson, wbo
is u memVr of the Joint High Com
mission, conferred with Secretary
Hay today regarding the boundary negotiations. The modus Vivendi has
nothing to do with the other questions
pending betweeu Cauuda and the
United States.
Washington, D. C, Sept. 0. ��� While
gratifying progress has been made
toward the arrangement of a modus Vivendi temporarily defining the boundary line between Alaska nud British
Columbia, and the officials concerned
in the negotiations are hopeful that
snecess will attend their efforts, it can
oe stated that at this moment negotiations aie still lunniiig, and therefore
it cannot he said that an amangement
has been reached. It is still possible
for the whole scheme to be disarranged, owing to the injection at this
print of some such counter proposals
as wrecked the modus thought to have
been arranged by Ambassador Choate
aud Lord Salisbury. State Department
otticials insist that while it is not
withiu reason to expect that any arrangement fair aud satisfactory to both
parties should be arrived at, still it
will be found when the result is made
public that the United States has secure a majority of tho points in contention and that, the opposition has
made concessions of the greatest importance. But one of tbe difficulties
of the situatioan is that the department is excluded from making tbat
fact officially known out of legard for
the obstacles that would be placed in
the way of any agreement by those
element! in Canada and this country,
who aro opposed to any sacrifice.
Londou. Sept. 7.���The Standard
makes an editorial protest tbis morniug against insinuations from America
tbat Great Britain has "rejected Canadian dictation aud abandoned the Canadian olaims in the Alaskan affair,"
ENGINEER'S     GALLANT    DEED.
Connellsville, Pa., Sept. (i.-Fifty
persons were injured, many of tbem
seriouBly, in a rear end collison on the
Baltimore and Ohio R. R. tonight at
Coniiellsville station. The presence of
mind of Engineer John Haggertv alone
saved the lives of many. The first sec-
tiion of train No. 5, a special of eight
Wagner sleepers, ran into the rear end
of the Cumberland accommodation,
Both trains were west bound. Engineer Murray of the special train, lost
control of his ongine, the air brakes
refusing to work, nnd crashod into the
rear end of the accommodation, which
wns standing in front of the station,
and was crowded with passengers. Engineer Haggerty, who was oiling his
engine, saw the runaway train coming
and sprang aboard his engine, throwing the throttle wide open. The accommodation train lurched forward
but not. quick enough to escape a collision. Two coaches of the timntiniio-
dntion were wrecked The coaches
were filled with people. Many were
covered with the wreckage, aud had to
be helped out.

mdoiy Speech at Nanaimo.
Victoria, Sept. ti. ��� (Special).��� The
Globe, this ov?uing, publishes the following editorial:
"There is much speculation in political circles its to what Lieutenant Governor Molnues will do in regard to the
charges preferred against him by The
Globe. Shoul I he remain silent, should
he refuse lo employ the rneaus at his
disposal to disprove tbem if they are
untrue, the inference that he i6 guilty
will be natural and justified. On the
other hand if he should hearken to the
appeals of Tho Globe aud other Opposition papers, and do his duly by
insisting oa an early session of the
Legislature, or dismiss the Government, he will ie placed in the position
of oue who is compelled lo confess to
having been whipped into action
against his inclination. The statement
is made in some quarters, that The
Globe's outspoken criticisms of the
Lieutenant-Governor's criminal apathy
are libellous. Well, The Globe had
no intention of uttering a libel. It
does not want to libel anybody, but it
dees want justice Aud if this country
cannot get it trom the bauds of Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes, it purposes
ascertaining the reasons why. If it be
libellous to raise one's voice against
tyranioal conduct on the part of servants of the people ; if it be libellous
to cry out against the spectacle of high
officials prostituting their positions for
the furtherance of personal ends; if it
be libellous to revolt against those who
would tear our constitution to tuttura
and violate every principle of constitutional governmeut, then it means
nothing that the British flag floats over
out beads; it means nothing thnt we
are supposed to be governed according
to the practice of British people; it
means nothing to declare that we are
free men and Thn Globe's statements
are libellous But we tell Lieutenant-
Governor Mclnnes that he will not be
permitted to close his eyes, and stop
his ears to the protestations of the people with impunity. We tell Lieutenant-Governor Meluuts lhat ho will
not be permitted to scheme fur purposes of his own with the miserable
clique of incompetents wrecking this
country, without beingjtold in uumis-
takeablc language that such things
must cease.
Victoria, Sept. (i.-W. W. S. Mc-
Iunes, M. P., was somewhat inflammatory in his speech at Nanaimo on Labor Day,when he said he would resign
his seat because of the Laurier Government's aotion in vetoing British
Columbia's anti-Mongolian legislation.
Ho said that with the next session the
matter would come up again. If the
Government theu refused to do anything they must take the matter in
their own hands. It was a serious
thing to counsel violence, but there
would havo been no other recourse open
to them. The text ot the resolution
passed by the Nanaimo people is as follows:
"Resolved, that this meeting views
wilh alarm tho recent decision by the
Privy Council, which pronounces it ultra vires of the Provincial Government to legislate against Chinese.
That we believe lhat uuless the Dominion Government aids the Provincial authorities by enacting legislation, which will restrict Oriental immigration, an incalculable injustice
will bn done tl the labor and to the
business interests of tho country.
That the Dominion Government and
the people of the East generally, do not
seem to bo aware of the gravity of the
situation and thnt it is necessary for
us in British Columbia to initiate mis-
siionary work in the East to open its
eves. Therefore, we pledge ourselves
to support morally and financially, any
scheme looking to the accomplishment
of the above aims and would recommend lhat one or more able speakers he
sent to the East and supported there in
active campaign along the suggested
lines."
Tho work done by the Provincial
Lands and Works department in thn
Atlin district has I een much commended by the repesentntives of European capital interested in the Northern British Colunibian gold region. In
the first place, tho Provincial Government saved the townsite from the land
grabbers. Then the Lands and Works
department turned its attention to
having roads made from the town to
the gold creeks That the work was
done well is certain from remarks
made by Messrs. E. Jamie de Lamare
and E. Orom. They have just returned
from Dawson and Atlin, a'ter spending four  months in  tbe  north.   Mr.
da Lamare, in particular, is enthusiastic over tho good roads to the different
Atlin crieks. The two gentlemen rep
resent nn influential French-English
syndicate. They have secured hydraulic rights over 1200 acres cf rich
gold bearing gravel land, and have
also secured over half of the Atlin
townsite, and are the largest owners of
town lots in the country. Thev are enthusiastic over the future before Atliu City and its gold fields, and are

says the Canadian Pacific Railway is
to him a marvel The equipment anil
everything connected with it is first
class and up-to date ill every respect
and the line has proved itself to be a
great colonizer of the greater Canada
of ihe west. He returns east with
favorable impressions of the future
possibilities for the west which he
doclared to be simply illimitable. It
is to be hoped many other representatives in the House of Commons, will
pay tho west a visit in order to famil
iarize themselves with the great couu-
try which lie* between the lakes and
the broad Pacific. One of Mr. McMnl-
len's sons accompanies him.
Victoria, Sept. (I. -The full court today allowed the appeal for a new trial
in the pack train case of Bord vs.
Veith, ou the grounds of that Justice
Drake erred at tne trial in ordering
the defendant's exclusion from the
oourt room while the plaintiff's case
wus being given. The couit decided
as follows: "In our judgment tho
parties to an action have the right to
be present during the trial, unless
some good reason is shown why any
of them should be excluded ; and the
mere circumstance that these defendants would, or might, be called as witnesses did not entitle the plaintiff to
require their exclusion. It is sufficient for the disposition of this appeal
that no reason whatever was even suggested fur the exclusion other than the
plaintiff's supposed right to call
for it."
John Weiler, the founder of firm of
Weiler Bros., of this city, died tbis
morning as the result of an illness, extending over six months. He was iu
his 76th year. Mr. Weiler came to
America when a young man, from
Mayenco, Hesse-Darmstadt, settling
first in the state of New York. He
joined in tl, s rush to the gold fields of
California in i860, and in 1801 niifteri
north to British Columbia. Shortly
afterwards he commenced in a modest
way the business which has since become the largest of its kind in the
Province. Iu 1800 he turned it over
to his sons, who with his widow survive him. The sous are George,
Charles. Otto and Joseph.
WILCOX AT YMIR.
Recent developments in the Wilcox
mine at Ymir, owned hy the Broken
Hill Mining & Development Company, have served to show up a tine
body of ore.
The .shaft on tbo Fourth of July
olaim adjoining tno Wiloox and owu-
ed by the same company,in on the same
vein as No. 2 tunnel on tho Wilcox..
This tunnel has now been driven 255
feet nnd it is the intentiou of the company to drive it another 700 feet, when
it will reach the ore shute on which
the Fourth of July shaft is sunk. Tbis
shaft is down 00 feet and has opened
up a fine shu'e of oro consisting of ga'
lena and oxides mixed. Two average
samples taken across foul feet in this
shaft gave respectively $85 and $00 in
gold and silver pet ton. When the Wilcox No. 2 tunnel has reached below
this shaft a large bi dy of high grade
ore will have been developed. Tunnel
No. 1 is now in 340 feet and a raise
has been made to the surface, a dis-
tiuce of 110 feet, from a point 300 feet
from the mouth of tbe tunnel. A
shaft has been sunk to a depth from
tbe surface of 170 feet. Another tnnnel will be driven below this tn connect with this winze, when another
large body or ore will have been developed.
No. 8 tuunel has been driven a dis -
tauce of 75 feet, making a total of 800
feet of work); accomplished on the property, all of which is on ledge matter.
A valuable discovery was made a few
davs ago when a uew vein was uncovered 20 feet from No. 3 tunnel aud
running parallel with it. This new
vein carries ore exactly similar to the
parallel vein No. 2.
A large block of ore, has been developed between the No. 1. tunnel
and the Burfaco and that two other
blocks are pnrtially developed below
No. 1 tunnel aud on the Fourth of July.
As by far the larger proportions of
this ore is free milling it has been de
cided to install a 10-stamp mill at the
earliest possible date. A mill site has
already_been secured; and surveyed aud
water rights have beeu acquired over
Wild Horse and Avalanche creeks. The
road from Ymir to the mine will be
oomplcted in the course of about three
weeks.
DEPENDS BIS FATE
Potentates  Have Power to
Free Poor Dreylus.
M.   LAB0RIS    APPEAL.
It Is 3enerally Considered That Emperor
William Will Allow tho German
Attache to Give Evidence.
Rennes, Sept. il. ��� The salvation of
dipt. Dreyfns hangs on a word from
Emperor William. This is the general
opinion here tonight. If the Kaiser
consents to allow Col. Sohwartzkop-
pen, the German military attache iu
Paris, in 1894, to testify before tbe
court martial, or to send a deposition,
or what is considered still more probable, to allow bis deposition to bo accompanied by the actual documents
mention d in the bordereau, then
Dreyfus is saved. If the Empcror.how-
ever, decides thut it is uot in the interest of Germany for Col. Schwartzkoppen to intervene, then Dreyfns'
chance is hopeless and his condemnation certain. Tonight the eyes of
Prance are looking across the frontier
to Stuttgart, where the Kaiser is staying, and anxiously awaiting his decision At a late hour he had given no
sign either way. To all intents and
purposes Emperor William stands today, the. arbitrator of the internal peace
of France, for every one anticipates
Humbert will follow his

delay. Emperor William
Wurtemberg from Alsace-
Loriaiue and King Humbert is at Turin. Communication between the two
monarchies is therefore, somewhat
complicated, and as they will uudoubt-
edly agree upon identical measures in
replying to M. Labori's appeal, it is
p'issiblo that some days will elapse before their decision is known. The
Opinion generally held here is that Emperor William aud King Humbert will
allow Col. Schwartzkoppen and Col.
Panizzardi to be examined by an in-
terogatcry commission and their dispositions to be sent to Rennes with
supplementary evidence from the originals of Esterhazy's treasonable communications.
The anti-Dreyfusards are extremely
exasperated at what they characterize
as M. Labori's '"trick." He bad long
been seeking an excuse to invoke the
intervention of the German-Italian
sovereigns and seized the appearance
nf Gernuschi as bis oppurtnuity, declaring that tbe admission of the evidence of tbis foreigner justified his application regarding Sohwartzkoppen

SPEAKS WELL   OF NELSON.
The Spokesman-Review of yesterday
chronicles the arrival home of Mr.
H. Bolster, manager of tbe Spokane
Industrial Exposition, aud publishes
in full The Miner's report of tbe
meeting which Mr. Bolster addressed
here. Following the report, the
Spokesman-Review says:
"That meeting will result in much
good to the Spokane Exposition," said
Mr. Bolster. "I believe it will be
well to combine International day with
Governor's day and have the two on
the 10th. The people of Nelson talk
of bringing down a band of Sootch pipers in full Highland dress. It is said
that tbere iB one of the best bands of
Canada in that vicinity. If tho 10th
is selected it will give many of the
visitors of the North a chance to remain over for Elks' day, on the lltb.
Tho Rossland Elks will he down very
strong."
Mr. Bolster says tbere are $300,000
worth of brick buildings going up in
Nelson now and that tho total front-
ago of business blocks under construction is as great as in Spokane at the
present time. "Nols n is almost twice
the size Spokane was when I came
here, in 1885," said Mr. Bolster.

MISSTATING THE ISSUE.
Mr. Ralph Smith, a member of the
Ilritish Columbia Legislature, is described as "tbe recognised leader of
organised labor" in this Province. If
the report of his speech delivered at
Rossland on Labor Day is to be taken
as the maesure of hiB ability and his
honesty, organised labor in this Province might easily have a more creditable representative. He emitted a
great deal of very cheap and stale stuff,
but our present interest is more with
the lamentable lack of candor displayed
in dealing with the Eight-Hour law.
Throughout his remarks he treated it
as if it, and what ho was pleased to
regard as the principle underlying it,
constituted the entire issue between
tho mine owners and the mine workers
This branch of his subject was introduced with the  remark  thnt when organised labor  expressed  a disposition
for eight hours the   operators  ought to
have yielded  gracefully,  remembering
that the priuciplo was   already   established.    If  the  gentleman   had   made
himself familiar with the  proceedings
of a convention of the (liners' Federation of Warwickshire, England, two or
three weeks ago, ho would know something of the lamentations   made  over
the fact that neither party in the British   Parliament would   recognise   the
principle by snpporting   an eight-hour
day.    We can overlook  his  ignorance
on this point,   however,   especially  as
it is so obvious ou many others.  Where
he cannot   be   ignorant, and   must  bo
dishonest, is in   speaking   of   the   expressed disposition of  organised  labor
in   this   Province   for   au   eight-hour
day.    So littlo was this disposition expressed that organised labor in the Slo-
oan did not know that  such a law was
contemplated; did not  know that  the
Legislature had any thought of dealing
with it until soveral   days after it lir.il
beeu passed.    So little   was it expressed that  the   mine owners    were  kept
in   ignorance  of  the   intention,   and
had no   opportunity to  put  in a word
for  thoir side of  tbe   question.    Like
thieves in the night, some members of
the  Legislature, of   whom Mr.   Ralph
Smith was one,   stole  in   with   their
measure and smuggled it   through.    It
was ill done   so  stealthily that it was
several weeks before it  becamo generally known tho   law had been   passed,
and no one   was  more ignornut of  its
passage  or  surprised   at   it   than the
miners themselves.    So  much for that
fabrication.
The Issue in not over the law itself.
If introduced openly in tho face of
day, there would probably havo been
no objection from many of tbe mine
owners. What they object to is the
most uujust attempt of the labor leaders to force them to pay a ten-hour
wage foi an eight-hour day. With
then pistols at the heads of the mine
owners, those loaders have attempted
to rob them of twenty per cent, of the
amount of theii pay roll. That is tho
issue, as Mr. tialph Smith doubtless
knoars but is too dishonest to   discuss.
ence may approve,   further than to require bim to respect the nonseieflces of
Others und render decent observance of
a custom   that   has become a  part of
the nature of onr nice.    Nor is it   proposed to ask any mini to forego t. right
or commit a   wrong.    Tbe  barbers  of
ihe City, for example,   we anxions  to
have  Sunday  to   themselves, but  the
nine of them   ��re afraid   that, if they
cliBO, the   leuth will   not,   and   their
business instinct will not permit them
to be overreached,   One of the bylaws
proposes to secure by  enactment what
thev cannot make fast by mutual agreement.    The remit is agreeable to  the
barbers   themselves,   and     no; others
have any call   to   complain.    Another
enactment is intended to prohibit the
promiscuous trafficking  in  merchandise.    That is in   accordance  with   the
general law anrt custom of   the Dominion and  of the  Empire.    Nelson  may
he a mining camp, as it is  saia to be,
but if by this is meant tbat it is  subject tc tho   sway   of   lawlessness  aud
rowdyism, there  is somewhere a   profound misunderstanding  of the sentiment, of the Oity.
There is nothing in lhe proposed bylaws lo give the least concern to any
peaceable, law-abiding, respectable
citizen, but much to please and gratify.
All that need be said further is that
if any person in the Oity, by offering
ns a Mayoralty or other candidate, desires to challenge an issue ou this
qnestion of a decent observance of Sunday, we have no doubt he oan be accommodated, nnd just as little doubt
that by tho time he is through he will
conclude that he hns had" a bellyful.
pocted among those modest Territorial
politicians, who go about their affairs
without attracting 'he least attention
from the outside. It 1ms been kuown
that Mr. Haultain wns lining himself
credit in the sphere sn far assigned
him, bnt few, we imagine, had any
idea lhat he possessed those Qualities
that would (it him to take the lead in
tho wider, more onerous, and more
responsible arena at Ottawa.
KOOTENAY ORE SHIPMENTS.
Tlm officer in charge of Her Majesty's Customs ollice in Nelson has
been notified that in future in no esse
shall an invoice be shown to, or a copy
thereof given to any person other than
au importer, or his agent, or attorney,
except by order or subpoena of a
Oourt of Justice, He may, however, at
his discretion, show the monthly aggregate returns to au enquirer.
It  has  besn   the  practice  of  The
Miner    to    publish   reports   of    any
shipments of   ore,   bullion  or  matte,
which    have    heen   entered    at    the
Nelson   Custom   House.   Through   the
courtesy of   the  collector of  Customs
there has  never been   any difficulty in
obtaining   the   required   information,
There is reason to believe that the publication   iu   a   newspaper of ore shipments from oertain   mines   is  viewed
with disfavor by some   mine   owners.
It is easy to see that   such publication
can have   hut  one object, namely, the
benefit of the country   and   tho  public
in general.    It is for the benefit of the
country that the  output  of   ore  from
the mines of Kootenay,especially those
iu the Nelson distriot, is made known
throngh   the   press.    There can be  no
desire on tho   onrt  of those who  h���ve
the interests of   lhe Province at   heart
to   hide    the    light    of    the    country's    prosperity    under    a    bushel.
It  is   for  the  benefit   of  the   public
that  tbe    actual   output   of   a    mine
is made kuown, in order that they may
bo so guided iu their choice of  an   investment.
But it is possible that the publication
of the output of any one mine may
militate against those who desire to
rig the market or gull the public us to
the true valne of lhat mino.
The Allans have added a now ship
to their fleet, the Bavarian, recently
launched. Tht Liverpool Post publishes a long description of tho vessel,
together with a report of a luncheon
given in celebration of tho event. The
Bavarian is a passenger boat, but with
generous freight capaoity, She is good
for an average speed of seventeen
knots, which will send her from Liverpool to Quebec in something less than
six days. This is not up to the requirements of a fast service, but, as'
her boilder said at the luncheon, if
Canada wants more let ber pay for it,
ami the Allans will supply what is demanded, It is thought ovei hero that
three-quarters of a million a year for
twenty years is pretty good pay, and
the Allans might do worse than fulfill j
tbo conditions for earning it Perhaps with the Bavarian they may induce Mr. Mulock to restore tbe mail
lontraot recently taken from them and
aiven to a slower line.

There i�� no occasion for the slightest

which AW. liirur him thorjghf it expedient to have puHsod. They propoHo nothing thut is at variance with the-wishm
or repugnant to   the desires of a  very
large majority of the  respectable men

as well be understood,first and last, that
���whatever the respectable  meu anil women of this City desire they will have,
for   tbey   are    numerous   enough   to
swamp the disreputable element when
it comes to  voting.    There  is  no  attempt at a  revival of  the Blue Laws,
or of anything  in   the   least like   the
Blue Laws.    All   that   is  proposed   is
that tbe by-laws of this Oity of Nelson
shall recognise the eipedieucy, at   any
rate, if not the necessity, of having   a
day   of    rest.    Wo    are  a  Christian

It may be true that there are no new
things under the sun, hut there are
occasionally some very surprising
ones. An example of thu latter is a
suggestion that Mr. Haultain, Premier ami Attorney-General of the Re-

NELSON DAILY MINER, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7,  1899
speedy" trials.
TWO  PRISONERS   PLEAD   B-U1L-Y
AND ARE SENTENCED.
Cameo- Pleads Not Guilty of Stealing
Ch-que and Will Be Tried
Next Tuesday,
Yesterday Messrs. Kennedy, Cameron and Kelly 1 niarohod like Eugene
Aril,���, "with gyvos upon" their
wrists from tlie Provincial goal to the
court lmnao, wliero Judge i'orin hold
audience. The prisoners all agreed
wiiu iiliicrity to tako a speedy trial
Frank Kennedy was the first to be
deii't wiih. He was charged with first
of nil fito'ilin!! nine revolvers fiom the
Nelson Hardware Company, and secondly with unlawfully breaking out ot
tin) Oity prison. The prisoner pleaded
guilty to colli charges. The judge re-
nnrkird upon the prisoner's yiuth und
how sad it was to see a young man in
uncli a position. He (Judge Forin)
knew nothing of the prisoner's past.
Hern Keune iy interposed, and said
that Ihe newspapers had given a history of his past record. He told the
judge he had nothing else to say in
answer to the charge. Judge Forin sentenced bim to two years in the penitentiary for each offence, both sentences to  run   oonourrently.
Thomas Cameron then was placed
iu the dock to answer to the charge
of unlawfully stealing a valuable security, viz., an order for payment of
f 16.05 from the person of John Leech.
Tlie, prisoner stated that he was told to
take the cheque hy Leech which
amounted to a plea of not gnilty. His
trial wns fixed for Tuesday, September 13
The Inst of  the batch was Austin J.
Kelly who   was   charged with unlaw
fully breaking into the house of T
Parr, on Cedar street   with   intent
steal,
The prisoner cheerfully pleaded
guilty, and asked by the judge if he
hnd anything to say for himself,
said that he was "crazy diunk" ut the
time the offence waB committed, also
thut he did not break into the house,
hut only attempted to do so.  ���
Tho judge seemed somewhat exercised in his mind as to whether the prisoner desired to plead guilty or not
guilty to the whole of the charge.
After a short deliberation His Honor
solved the question, by sentencing the
prisoner to ono year's imprisonment,
with hard labor, Kellv treated the
whole proceedings as a Huge joke, and
wns lend away smiling, with his fellow goal birds.

COUNTY COUKT.
Today the sittings of the County
Oourt of Kootenay open. There are o\er
twenty cases on the docket, somo of
them being adjourned cases,some probably will be settled, and some be held
over till the next sittings. The major
ity of lhe eases are claims for wngr s.
There are two jury eases viz., Oenelle
vs. Fox, a case involving a dispute on
11 hill tor lumber, and Lapointe vs. St.
Denis, which is a claim for wages.
George Hoi brook, the scavenger,
fiRUres ns deli ndant in three cases.
W. Traves is summoned to appear on a
judgment summons (not. for the (list
time) nt the suit of West und Emerson.
The action of the C. P. B, against.
W. A. Jowett, to recover $W0 on a
promissory noto, will probably he settler), provided the question of costs oan

ipparently has compromised with the
Fletcher pany, und will lend his support to it when the Alderman goes to
the polls. According to some, Aid.
Fletcher Bhowed that be is accommodating biniself to the habits of his
now political associates, by indulging
iu a flow of Billingsgate, at the meeting on Tuesday night, when Aid. Beer's
by-laws were under discussion. It was
quite like old times lo hear such language iu the Council chamber.
Who Aid. Fletcher's opponent will
be is not yet apparent. To The Miner
yesterday, Aid. Beer said ho had no intention whatever, of running for mayoralty honors To start with no ono
had asked him to do so, and even if he
wore asked, he would havo to refuse,
as he has no I deRire for the honor, and
oould not give thejtime to the City, if
he were elected. He also stated that
he would not offoi himself for re-election as alderman. He hoped to see the
by-laws, which nre now before the
Council, passed, and carried into
effe-t.
Asked if the by-laws concerning
Sunday closing, which he is] fathering,
will include bars and saloons, as most
people seem to think, Aid. Beer snid
that such was never contemplated by
him. Such matters wero covered by
the Licensing Act,nnd it was the work
of the License Commissioner!) ro see
that its regulatious were carried out
He did not intend to urge the Oity
Council to dn anything, but mind its
own business.
It is well known that His Worship
Mayor Norlands, will have hnd all be
wants of mayoralty honors by the end
of the year, nnd that he will not contest the honor for a second term. So
at present the representative of the
Houston forces is the only one in the

a strong effort made to persuade Aid.
MoKillop to become a candidate.
NELSON ELECTRIO LIGHT.
The ujw thick copper wire, to be
used as the high tension feeder from
the new dynamo, is being put up in
Mill street. This wire will he carried
along Mill street, down Josephine and
along Carbonate streets, then down
Hull to Vernon Btreet. All lights south
east of this boundary will be supplied
on tbe new alternating system from
this high tension wire.
The peonliar advantage, of th s particular system is the great saving in
copper wire. The reason why such
thick wire is used for the feeder is owing to the high voltage, which will be
82(H), whereas that in the old wiles is
120. The uew dynamo should arrive
this woek, but tuo Oity Engineer in-
t'nds, as far as possible, to have everything ready so that immediately the
dynamo is put iu place, connections
can to mado.
AT THE HOTELS.
THE COLUMBIA FIRES.
Since, the hearing of the charge preferred against Charles Mt.llen aud
Robert Cameron for setting iiro to the
Columbia Hotel, the latter has signod
a full confession Stating thut be received the money from parties to burn Mthe
hotel, and that he hired another ..man
to tlo the work. He implicates Mullen, Mauley and others. Ho states
that ho reoeived tho money on Tuesday, tho 18th of Jnly, and promptly
divided equally with the man who did
work.    A   warrant is said to have
th
been issued for the arrest of JohJ A.
Mauley, who is now supposed to be at
Republio, undjwho is understood to be
nl the bottom jif the whole matter.
'i'he arrest of Mullen und Oamerou
was siiiiulatnoons though tbo men were
in different places. Ono was innde by
Pro'iuolal Constable Dinsmore, and
the ot'ier by a Pinkerton detective who

EASILY LEAD and
MISLEAD
The people that run after every fly-by-night
bargain sale,where something is offered for nothing, arc the kind of people that are never satisfied; and no wonder, for they nevetget anything
worth wearing.
The well satisfied people are those who buy
their FOOTWEAR of reliable dealers; knowing from past experiences that they get their
moneys' worth.

*********+**>*>���*******���**+*+*
The Rossland Miner states that the
first discovery of coal in the Boundary
country, it is alleged, has been made
bv Robert Olark. a well known randier nnd prospector. The seam is enjd
to average .? feet in width. It is located on the Lanrier mineral claim on Ihe
north fork of Kettle river. Jay P,
Graves, the well known mining und
.melting magnate, has purchased u
half interest and the development of
the property will be commenced next
week. Mr." Clark looated the Lrinr-
ier seven years ago, and has done considerable work in opening tip two
ledges, which give good assays in gold
and copper. He sold a half interest to
Campbell Johnson, of Nelson, B. U.
For a long time pnst Mr. Clark bus
been aware of the existence of a darkish slate colored ledge on the Laurier,
bnt'.nntll recently never seriously considered the possibility that it might
contain coul. The lead at various
points is over 100 feet wide. Two
weeks ago lie re-examined the show
ing, and at a point where it strikes
Fisherman's creek fonnd what lie con
siders to be lignite coal. The pay
streak, or seam, in tho cut banks cf
the stream is about two feet wide.
Tests showed that the product burned
very well, and emitted a strong heat.
Mr. Clark in accordance with the law
re-staked the claim as a coal location,
and also recorded similar locations
ou adjoining mineral claims belong
ing to other parties. He now holds
640 acres.
It bas transpired that Jay P. Graves
has secured the half interest after the
find had been examined by A. B. W.
Hodges, superintendent of the smelter,
now building at Grand Forks. Mr,
Hodges is also a mining engineer. He
declined to discuss the matter.coutent-
mg himself with the observation that
a coal mine in the Boundary country
would result in the reduction of smelt
ing charges to |a. 00 per ton.
Mr. Graves took several samples of
the^coal to Spokane last week, iu order
to have it fully   tested   and   examined
by experts.

A.   L.   McEwen, a   Nelson   mining
engineer,representing the Consolidated
Mines Selection Syndicate of   London,
England, is in Sumpter.  Ore., looking
over mining propositions  with a view
of  investing.    Mr.     McEwen     states
that be finds that camp the most prom
ising field he has  ever visited, aud be
has been in all the mining  districts of
Canada,    Ontario, and British Colniu
bia.    He will   probably  remain  there
some time, as he has  under consider;!
tion  a   property,   and   if the  deal   is
closed,   the   amount   of   the sale  will
rnu up into six figures.
Colonel S. W. Ray, of the banking
firm of Ray, Street & Co, of Port Arthur, Out., ib also there looking for
properties that are already developed
or will buy promising prospects to
develop He has under oonaideratior
two or three different properties which
are partially developed, and there is
every probability of bis taking ono of
them, and possibly two, He is much
impressed with tho immense possibilities and enormous ledges of that camp.
Colonel Ray will be remembered as
the party who so successfully engineered the affairs of the Molly Gibson
mine, that that property will ship this
winter. He is also connected with
the Dardanelles mine in the Slocan
camp.

The Excelsior Gold Mining Company
is pushing things on the Joker, up the
south fork of Kaslo creek, in the
Slocan. It has this summer built a
trail connecting with tho Government wagon road up the oreek, and
has four buildings complotetd. It is now
building a shaft bouse 40 feet square.
It is the intention, as soon as this
last building is completed, to put on
about 15 uiiuers and pay $3.60 for
eight-hour shifts. This 'company is
composed of French capitalists who
apparently, are not afraid to spend
money fnely, as they have great faith
in their property. Tbey will put in a
stamp mill abont three and ione-half
miles down the trail from the Joker.

DAN GODFREY'S  BAND.
Programmn   For   the Two Concerts to
Bn Givon on Saturday.
The much looked for advent of Dan
Godfrey's band iB at hand. On Saturday Nelsonians will have an opportunity of hearing one of the finest military bands in Europe. Heretofore the
professional troupes of musical and dramatic visitors to this town have not
been of a very high order. Doubtless
the greater artists fear that it would
not be worth their while to come
to Nelson. If therefore the people of
this City want  to encourage tho visits
of good musicians and theatrical companies tbey must unite in patronising
any first class entertainment the management of which has been ven'uie-
some enough to include Nelson in a
toor. Godfrey's bund should surely
command a hearty reception here aud
there should not be a seat left unsold.
The music ns set forth in the following programme is of a distinctly popular obnrnoter and certainly will not
be above lhe least musical of lhe audience.
