Eleventh  Year
FOUR YEARS MORE OF
FULL LIBERAL MAJORITY
The Electors of Canada Place Sir Wilfrid Laurier's Government
Again in Power-Astonishing Slaughter of Conservative Leaders-All the Ministers
Re-Elected - What the
Papers Say.
Montreal, Nov, 8.���The prevailing
prosperity and other causes have
succeedod in placing the Liberal Government of Sir Wilfrid Lauriei in
power for a ,second term. The most
surprising features of yesterday's
elections were the great Liberal landslide in Quebeo, where ten Conservatives out of OS were not elected aud
the defeat of all tho prominent leaders of the Conservatives with the exception of Sir Charles llibbert Tupper
aud N. Clarke Wallace. Sir Charles
Tupper went down before the Liberal
ticket in Capo Breton, lion. 0. E.
Foster fell before Hon. A. G. Blair in
.St. John City, Hob. Hugh John Maedonald was defeated by Hon. Clifford
.Sifton in Brandon, and Hon. Dr. Montague gave way uefore Thompson in
lialdimund.
The Liberals themselves did not expect the sweep Id the Maritime Provinces; the Conservatives never expected lo come near carrying Quebec bht
they did not look for euch a Waterloo:
Ontario returned a Conservative majority about what was anticipated by
both paritos, Manitoba wont beyond
the utmost hopes of the Conservatives
by reluming but one straight Liberal | the Northwest Territories remained as they woro but each party
made a gain, and British Columbia,
witli two elections to take place yet
remains about as it was. The racial cry in Quebec, so adroitly worked
by Laurier and Tarte, was responsible for the astonishing Liberal victory
and the prevailing prosperity had the
effect It always does of strengthening
the party In power. Manitoba's Conservative sweep is consllered a very
sharp rebuke for Siftoi), where he had
bis machine men running in nearly
overy constituency.
The returns from Brandon   and   St.
John City   were   most  eagerly looked
for and wild   enthusiasm   was   manifested at all the Liberal centres when
the   results  were   made; known.    All
over the Dominion   the Liberals   duly
celebrated their   good fortuno and tho
wires   were loaded   with   congratulatory messages which Hashed in all directions. The returns came in promptly and early   in   the evening the Conservatives conceded a  Liberal victory.
Politicians today are  chielly   Interested   In   discussing   the prospects   of
the    Liberal-Conservative    party.    It
is not thought, probable here that   Sir
Charles Tupper   will   Heck   a scat, although   It   is expectod   that Hon. Mr.
Poster   will enter   tho   House.    Hugh
���lohnjMacdonald's |well known dislike
for politics will probably keep him ut
home and ho will return to the   practice of law.    lie is being   praised   on
all   sides   for   his   splendid   work   in
Manitoba.    Who   the    leader  of    the
Conservatives will be no one attempts
to oven guess.
As all the Ministers have been returned it is not expected that there
will be any shuffling of portfolios nnd
tbe cabinet will remain as It is at
present.
Both parties gained about tho same
number of scatss the Conservatives
chiefly In Ontario and the Government In Quebec.
The Conservative, prcRB of Eastern
Canada attributes yesterday's defeut
to tholr party to race prejudice on
the part of the LiberalH and to the ac
tion of the unthinking electors who
were led to believe that the prosperous times were due to tho Liberal policy. The Liberal press o_ the other-
hand, attributes their success to the
personality of Sir Wilfrid Lauricr,
raco prejudice on the part of Conserv
ministrators  and   to the prosperity of
the country.

What the Victoria Paper   Says  of the
Conservative   Party.
(SPECIAL, TO T1I_I MINER.)
Victoria, B. C, Nov. 8.���Regarding the result of the elections yesterday, Tho   Colonist   says   editorially:
"The defeat of Sir Charles Tupper,
Mr. Foster, Mr. Bergeron, Mr. Hugh
John Maedonald aud other Parliamentary gladiators leaves Hie Conservatives in a bad way for leaders. It
will take the party "some time to recover from this blow. Presumably
Sir Charles Tupper will not again enter the folitical arena. lie is now in
his 80th year, and, if we are not mistaken, has never before been defeated.
Doubtless if he desires a seat in the
house a constituency would be obtained for him but it is hardly likely that
he will desire this."
There was a serious cutting affray
during a quarrel iu a Chinese shack at
the rear of the store of Ah Sung,
Chinese merchant of Government
Street, last night, as a result of whloh
two Chinese lie in the Jubilee hospital BcriouBly, one perhaps, fatally injured.
New York, Nov. 8.���Richard Croker
said: "I waB very much surprised
and disappointed at tbe way the election turned out. I did expect Mr.
liryan to be elected President of the
l'nited States. " Asked for the cause
of defeut, he replied : "I believe that
li',,to 1 had a lot to do with the vote
against Bryan in this state. What
the causes were in the southern and
eastern stateB I do not know. I do not
regard the decision of the country as
adverse to Mr. Bryan as the man, it
was against tlie principles."
ON HIS WAY

Sir Charles Tupper Will Visit
Yale-Cariboo and
Burrard.
Sydney, C. B., Nov. 8.���Sir Charles
Tupper attributes liis defeat to his
absence from hilconstituency working
in the interests of tbe party in other
sections of the Dominion, lie would
not speak as to the general result,
however. Sir Charles leaves for British Columbia in a few days to engage

U. S. ELECTIONS.
1
New   York,    Nov.    8.���Ex-Governor
Stone of   Missouri, chairman   of   the
Democratic committee, nade   the following   statement    yesterday:    "The
battle   Is   over   and   the    Democratic
party of the country   accepts   the   result   without   complaint,   ns   in   duty
hound.    It signifies hut little now   to
analysis the   intlueuces   or to   discuss
Hie causes that    brought about the result.    There will be a wide difference
of opinion   as to   that.    This   I   will
say,*   however,    that    the     Democrat
party must stund and   will stand   unswayed in defence uf the   constitution
antl for thu   preservation   unimpaired
of our Institutions.    A colonial poliey
would be destructive of   the   Republic
and   we should   resist every effort   10
establish it. 1 have always favored the
annexation,    in   a   proper   way   with
IslundB adjacent to our coast, but have
opposed the annexation of  a large domain in the   eastern   hemisphere   for
reusons fully stated   during   thu campaign.    Tho     Democrat   party     must
stand IInn ill the defence   of   the constitution while   at   tho   same  time it
should take an advanced   and progressive position looking to   the   development and promotion of our   maritime
and   i-ciiin. c-n-ial    iuterusts.    The Missouri Pcmocrnt platform   of   lstis  expressed   my   vluws   ou   the    principal
questions  of   the   day.   Those   questions arc for future  dUcsssion,   bOW��
over,all I say now Is what I have said
many   times   before,   that   the Demo
oratic party must be allltinod   as  woll
as   progressive.    Mr.   Bryan   inaile  a
great light.    He is one of the most ru-
markable   man   of   history,     lle   may
novor  bo   President   but   whether   iu
politics  or   private    life   no  man   in
Amerloa will hold   a   more conuniisd-
Ing place and none   will he cnpalelei of
exerting   a   greater   iniluenee for the
public good.    May God Lloss him. "
Berlin, Nov. 8.���German Government circles are all delighted at President McKlnley's re-election The
L'nited States Embassy today received
a message of expressions to that
effect. Everybody is discussing the
results.
Dr. Von Hollonben.the German Ambassador to tbe United States who is
now in this city said to the correspondent of the Associated Press about
tlie result: "We all rejoice over it."
Dr. Barth, tho Frelsinnige leader
said: "I consider Mr. McKinley's
election, all things considered, the
best result, ulthough I cannot endorse
this Imperialistic tendency, yet I regard bis election as most conducive to
the interests of general civilization
when compared with the results which
Mr. Bryan's election would havo
brought. For the economic interests
of both the United States and Germany, the preBent result is also more
satisfactory."
The Tagblatt says: "The German
greet McKinley's re-election above all
as a victory for sound ourrency over
revolutionary monetary experiments,
which would have been calculated to
most severely shake the basis of tho
entire world's commerce. Anyhow
Germany's policy is to nurse olose and
loyal relations with the head of a
country that is connected with us by
so many economic and national ties
as lu the United statu,, There aro
in no pnrt of tlie world serious differences between the United States and
Germany. In China both powers have
marched on the same lines, after Mr.
McKinley's first feeling of distrust regarding Germany's allied territorial
schemes subsided.
The Post says: "The result is greeted with the satisfaction that sympathy in Germany for the re-elected
I'm .-iclc-iii has won the confidences of
our Government and our diplomacy
during his term by consistent efforts
to maintain good relations between
Germany and the United States."
AN IMPORTANT   AGREEMENT.
London,Nov.8. ��� Tho Novoe Vremya,
says the Sl. Petersburg correspondent
of The Daily Express, wiring before
the re-election of McKinley was
known at the Russian capital, announces with ollieial sanction that an
understanding has been reached between Russia, France, I'nited States
and Japan, by way uf counterpoise to
tbe An j-1 ci, e-iiic. in agreement, adding
that the results will become specfll-
cully apparent if President McKinley
Is re-elected.

IHE ELECTIONS.
The feature of the elections that
will strike us most Is not the landslide in the Maritime Provinees.or the
surpiising and totally unexpected
changes in particular constituencies
elsewhere. These can be explained,
no doubt, and are probably due to local causes that are readily understood.
There is a more serious feature than
any of theso, one that will give
thoughtful men many moments of anxious consideration. It is the menace
to British sentiment and institutions,
and to the stability of Confederation,
that is contained in the almost solid
contingent of French-Canadian members from Quebec. For the next five
years at least, even more than during
the past four years and a half, this
country is to be governed by men who
are more French than BritiBh.
Speaking to his constituents a few
days ago, Mr. E. B. Osier said: "I
Bay that tlie two men who are responsible for all the strife, all the race
prejudice that may have been aroused in the past three or four years, are
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and J. Israel
Tarte. I say that in this country it
must stop; wo will not bear it any
longer." Truer word has not been
spoken throughout the campaign;
whatever race and religious prejudice
exists is due to those two men. Mr.
Tarto's appeals to the prejudices of
his race have been of the grosser
sort; Sir Wilfrid's have not been less
earnest or offectual because they have
been veiled. "I am a French-Canadian like yourselves,and a Catholic," he
was in the habit of declaring to his
compatriots. "The same blood runs
through my veins that runs through
yorr. But 1 do not appeal to you for
your support on these grounds. " No?
Then why mention them at all? He
went on: "1 ask you if it is any dishonor to the French-Canadians that
one of their race and their religion is
Prime Minister of Canada?" ,11115 accomplished hypocrite has gone up and
down his Province, from one end to
the other, insinuating in some suoh
form as this that because he was
Frenoh-Canadian and a Catholic his
compatriots and co-religionists ought
to support him. Aud iu the result yesterday we see the effect of his cunning
appeals; almost a solid French-Canadian phalanx is sent from Quebec to
support him in Parliament, and to
give him absolute control, under tho
favor of Mr. Tarte, ovor the government of Canada.
What Mr. Tarte's aspirations are we
know from liis declarations in I'aris.
He expects that before many years
tho French-Canadians of the Dominion will outnumber all the others, lie
said that in a published interview.
lie ulso said that it was the hope of
his nice to see Canada an independent
nation. Give them tbe numbers, und
we saw yesterday how they will
stand together to obtain what they
want. Looking at the Quebec returns,
tlio apprehension unpleasantly suggests itself that this country is on the
eve of a race war. Mr.Tarte io determined that thu Froncli-Cauaeli.'in
spirit shall predominate in the Dominion; Canadians of Hritish birth or
origin can hardly be expected to submit quietly to their   own   cll'acoment.
Such a slaughter of loaders never
before occurred in any election ns the
Conservatives so cruelly experienced
in yesterday's campaign. Not ono of
any prominence iH left. Mr. Clarke
Wallace is probably the ablest of the
few survivors, unless Sir Hibburt Tupper has secured bis election and will
contest that distinction with him.
For many reasons, however,neither of
these gentleman can In, seriously considered as the coming leader. Sir
Charles Tupper is too old a man to
care to continue in the gam"; for the
present, at least, it is not likely
Mr. Hugh J. Maedonald will seek n
vacancy; the party can scarcely do
without Mr. Foster's lliiuiiciiil knowledge and experience, and It is probable a seat will be found for him, but
in temperament and disposition he Is
not cut out for a lender of men. The
present is a favorable time for the introduction   of  lew blood.    Mr.   J lor-
den, of Halifax, and Mr. Osier, of Toronto, are men of ability; whether
they have the qualifications necessary
in a leader they have not had the op-
poitunity to demonstrate. One very
desirable qualification, however, they
possess in common, and that is that
neither of them is weighted down
with entanglements with the old order of things.
Within the memory of man South
Simcoe has never been anything but
Conservative. When constituencies
on every side of it were wobbling,now
one thing in one election and another
thing in another, it stood firm as
Morning Mountain. There were often
contests for policy', sake, but the majorities were away up in the.hun-
dreds; almost as often the elections
went by acclamation. Yesterday,
with a strong Conservative feeling
running in Ontario, and like a bolt
from the blue, It went Liberal by
five hundred majority. This iB probably the greatest individual surprise
of the campaign.
We shall probably know in time
why Winnipeg elected Mr. Puttee by
such a pronounced majority. His opponent, Mr. Martin, is a prominent
business man, of highly respectable
character. He was as much opposed
to the.Government as a straight Conservative could be,and he had the support of many of the most influential
Libeials in the city. With their aid,
the Conservatives should have had
no difficulty in electing him. But
they either refrained from voting or
marked their ballots for the Labor
candidate. Why they did this iB the
particular matter in this election that
requires explanation, for to outsiders
it is  wholly unaccountable.

WHAT RUSSIA IS LIKE.
Alter Travel   There,   Henry   Norman
Vividly Summarizes His Impressions.
After nearly 30,000 miles in Russia
���hot and cold, river and mountain,
wheat Held and cotton field, desert
and steppe, empty country and crowded town���what is the upshot of it all
what are the dominant impressions
left upon one's mind'.'
Vastness of area, of courso, to begin
with. The extent of the Russian em
pire is almost terrifying. The Brit
ish empire is enormous, too, but
though one may have seen most of it
tho same impression is never produc
Oil, for it is scattered over the world
and divided by groat seas. Eussia is
a whole���you could walk from Arch
angel to Kushk, and from Helsingfors
to Vladivostok. The great Russian
mystery is how all this is governed
from the city on the Neva. The world
has never known sueh   centralization.
Again, and similar to this first impression, the apparently inexhaustible variety of raceB. In Central Asia
you come upon a company of recruits;
they are Poles and Finns. Your ser
vant in Siberia is a Circassian. The
Russian officer who took Merv for her
Is a Mussulman native���Gen. Alikh
anoff; you see���Ali Khan Off? Great
Russians and Little Russians.Cossacks
of the Don, and Cossacks of the Urals
Germans and .Tews and Greeks���never
did so multifarious a crowd hear a
single name.
It is obvious, you conclude, that
with so vast and varied a territory,
and so huge and ethnologically variegated a population, the natural penalty of centralization���"qui trop em
brasse mal etreint"���must naturally
be in process of development. The
Russian empire, from its very s'ze and
promiscuity, must be showing signs
of going to pieces? I can only Bay I
saw no such signs. The sacred per
sonality of the czar and heavy hands
of the authorities in St. Petersburg
are just as evident and just as inevitable on the circumference as at the
center. Russia revolves as smoothly
as the well-welded fly-wheel. So long
us no Haw develops, nothing could be
moro impressive or more powerful
than tho fly-wheel; if, however, it
once cracks, it goes to fragments, and
everything around it goes to fragments, too.
After the vastness of country, the
mixture of peoples, and the centralization, coincs the impression of
strength. Russua is indescribably
strong. Her strength makes you ner
vous. It is like being in the next
field, with a golfing jacket on, to an
angry young bull. Tho bull does not
realize that the gate is there to stop
him���therefore it will not stop him.
Russia walks roughshod over and
through obstacles that an older, a
more civilized, a more self-conscious
country would manoe.ver around ^for
half a century. She wants Siberia-
she takes it. She wants Manchuria-
she Is taking it. A constitutional Finland is in her way���constitutional
Finland must become a Russian Province. Money makes the mare go, and
tho lack of money usually makes the
would-be rider walk a foot. Not so
with Russia. There is an exceedingly
lack of cash in official Russia. One
project of a fresh loan after another
has failed. Trilling sums have been
borrowed at high rates from American
insurance companies. The Trans-Siberian railway is eating gold. There is
a devastating coal crisis. There has
been u series of terrible famines. The
war in the far east la costing an enormous sum. In view of all this, you
argue once more,all expensive national enterprises must be stopped or|post-
poned. Not a bit ot It. Everything
proceeds as regularly as though a
million rubles came floating down the
Neva every morning. The Trans-
Siberian railway being pushed at all
speed. The army is being increased.
The navy is being strengthened rapidly. Railways are planned in the
Southern Cauasus, In Persia, iu Central Asia. During the ton yearB ended in 1800, 18,000 mileB of railway
were constructed. LaBt year alone the
increase was 3,1140 miles. And everywhere that ItUBsia reaches she erects
handsome and pormanont buildings-
railway stations, cathedrals, administrative offices, barracks. Eew Provincial towns in Europe or America have
theaters and museums as fine aB those
of Irkutsk and TlAis.
The-strength of Russia again strikes
you in the inexhaustible masses of
her common people. They are physically vigorous, they can livo on a
Chinaman's daily expenditure, they
are wholly Illiterate, wholly superstitious, absolutely; obedient, even to
death, to what they are told Is the
will of the czar. It a couple of hundred thousand of them are needed to
Increase the army they weep and go.
If they must bu sacrificed in shoals to
���Win a battle, well, they aro never
missed except each group In It own
village, and not  much   there.    There

the remedy that cwrce a coM tB f** dp'
are two countries in the world where
flesh and blood are cheap���China and
Russia. This is the strength of the
one; it will be the strength of the
other if ever she is organized.
Under the fostering care of M. de
Wittc, whom I should personally be
inclined to rank as the ablest and
most far-seeing statesman now 'in
olliee in Europe, Russian manufacture
is making incredible progress. It
has its ups and downB, its fat years
and its lean years, its crises and its
booms, but these are only serpentine
movements, and its general advance is
uninterrupted. In my letter \ from
Moscow I spoke of the enormous dividends earned by the cotton spinning
companies there. The iron industry
has enjoyed in the past almost equal
prosperity, but I think a crisis in this
trade is approaching now. The population of Russian Poland, where both
manufacture and agriculture flourish,
has doubled in forty years. In this
city of Warsaw the output of the factories amounts to ��0 per head of the
entire population. I learned of half a
dozen industries which promise a fortune to the foreigner who first BtartB
them in Russia. An enormous mining
development only awaits the moment
when foreign capitalists shall wake
up to the fact that Russia offers them
by far the most remunerative field for
investment. If I became a capitalist
the day after 1 reach home I should
leave for Russia the next week, and it
would be a matter of comparative indifference to me whether I turned up
in the Urals or the Caucasus or Tran-
scaspia. This, then, is anotner im.
pression left upon my mind.
Finally,though I have not set about
to write of politics upon this journey,
one vital political impression has
come home with me. Namely, that
in the nature of things there is no immovable obstacle to a frank, inclusive,
permanent, mutually beneficial understanding between Great llritain
and Russia. The greatest foice in
Russia today is a personal force that
makes for peace. If this question
were approached, in tho right way,
that is, with full knowledge and with
perfect courage for any outcome, it
could be settled, lam profoundly convinced, to the infinite advantage of
both nations and the advance of civilization. But as the statesmen who
have but a scanty stock of either
knowledge or courage, we are more
likely to be wrangling than understanding, and war   is  more   probable
than peace.
���   *   ���
These are tho impressions left ou
the surface of my mind by a long
journey throughout the Russian empire under most favorable conditions
for seeing and bearing, and hastily
written down. Perhaps upon reflection I may modify some of them, At
the moment of my return, however,
they are vivid and sincere.

NEWS OF
THE MINES
���/VSAe^VVAA^'��rV>^rVSlNr\r>r>VVeAr>*
Kaslo, U. 0., Nov. 8.���The immense
lead aoross the lake from Kaslo,BO feet
wide and almost three miles long, on
whloh about 813,000 has been expended by the Leviathan Gold Mining
Company, has been sold to the Globe
Mining Company, Limited, which
was recently organized on a limited
assessable basis, with a capitalization
of $1,000,000. The new company has
assumed the liabilities of the old one,
and otters its stock In exchange for
Leviathan stock on a basis of one
share for two of the old company's
shares, the capital of the old company
being twice that of the new one.
A party of engineers visited the
lower half of this property this week
with the object of locating the best
possible point from which to continue
the operations which the new com-
pnuy is now preparing for. The mem
bers of the corps have returned and
are enthusiastic in thoir opinion of
the property. Some 800 yards from
No. 1. tunnel the lead was found to
outcrop above a direct descent, at the
bottom of which another tunnel will
be run for a comparatively short dis
tance to tap the lead at a depth of 400
feet. The greatest depth heretofore
attained was 150 feet, where the lead
was over 40 feet wide and gave various values ranging from 83 to 814 per
ton. It is anticipated that the projected work will, give values largely
in excess of anything yet found. The
values have been increasing as depth
is attained. The new company has
as provisional directors, J. II. Dray,
C A. Carlson, J. Spiers, A. McQueen,
D. C. McGregor and O. A. Sutherland,
all of whom are energetic business
men of this town. The success of this
mine will mean much to Kaslo.
��� *   ���
The   Slocan-Sovereign   Company   of
Montreal is about to attempt to prove
the Madison group of claims, about
one mile north of Sandon. There are
live claims in the group, but most of
the work has been confined to the
Madison and Argentu. The general
belief around Sandon is that the prop
erty will turn out' to be a valuable
one. A dozen men have been placed
at work on the Argenta. The property has five tunnels in 800, 235, 300,
05 and 75 feet respectively, and there
are 3-5 feet of upraises and 50 foet of
winzes. All told some 45 tons of ore
have been shipped from the workings
The ore gave an average value of 181
ouncei silver and 10 per cent lead.
On the Madison there are three
tunnels in 425, 170 and 05 feet respectively. Lately in prospecting, a vein
of rich cube galena has been found in
a cutting. No regular work has been
done for some time on   the   property.
��� ���   ���
Today the mining records are as follows: Transfers���From William Wal-
bey to .1. II. Nickerson, U interest in
Kaki on Morning Mountain for
nominal consideration; Charles Munroe to J. 11. Nickerson, }j interest in
"A" about live miles south of Nelson,
for a nominal consideration. Certificates of Work ���To J. E. Cranston, on
Cranston Hank; C. C. Ladd, on Keystone. Locations���Gold Ledge, on
Wild Horse Creek, to .1.  0,   Ellis.
IN A FEW DAYS.
Capt. Gifford has   Word of Machinery
for Silver King Mine.
Captain John R. Gifford, manager of
the Hall Mines, has been advised that
the first shipment consisting of two
carloads of the new machinery which
was ordered for the mine somo time
ago, has arrived in Spokane. Tl
shipment will arrive in Nelson on
Sunday or Monday and steps will be
taken to remove it to the mine at
once. This consignment consists of
two boilers and the smokestack .vhich
in BOO feet long, and said to he the
longest of its Kind iu the Dominion
of Canada.
The boilers anil pipe will be hauled
up the hill on wagons until the snow
is reached and will thou be transferred to sleighs. To move them up the
hill It will require at least 1(1 horses
attached to one truck. The smoke
stack will conic in links, and will be
coupled and riveted at the mine.
Boiler makers will be brought from
Rossland to look after this portion of
the work. The boiler is to be placed
in No. 5 tunnel, which will make it
500 feet below the ground and 1,800
feet in from the surface. The luilers
are of a locomotive character and will
not have to be bricked in, but just
placed Into position, The remaining
portion of the machinery is expected
to he shipped shortly and all trill bo
installed as quickly as possihle. Development work will then ho pushed
rapidly.
SBBO'l".  LOGAN'S   DEATH.
'Farther particulars ol the death of
Sergt. Logan, who enlisted here, arc
given In a letter from the front published In The Vancouver Province, as
follows:
our regiment was sent out on'outpost
for twenty-four hours. Sergeant Logan, of C. Squadron, was sent to relieve a picket on the hill, and taking
four men went to what looked like a
British picket in the spot whither he
had been directed, but which, when
within three hundred yards, he discovered to be Hoers in Hritish uniform. After a quarter of an hour's
firing Sergeant Logan and his men
were all shot dead, with tho exeep
tion of McDuff, who by luck had tak
en another   trail   to   reach   the   post
"The men killed all came from Fort
Steele���Privates West, Jones and Wig
gins. The bodies were found two
days later.
"On hearingtthat a picket of C was
cut off, H squadron sent out a troop
to assist them, and when they came
home without finding the picket,
they found themselves short of Sergeant Brothers and I'rivato Crnick
shanks, of MacLeod, whose bodies,
riddled with bullets wore also found
the following night.
"It is said that the Boers think that
neither the S. A. L. H. nor our regi
ment take any prisoners���that is they
shoot them all���and they do not intend to take any of us alive."
TROUBLE
C.P.R. and Great Northern In
Dispute Over the Le
Roi Spur.
There is a slight indication at pres
ent which points toward trouble be
tween the Great Northern at Ross
land, concerning the spur which runs
from the city to the Lo Roi and the
Centre Star. At present the Canad
ian l'aeific has a line constructed ai
far as the Le Roi but there is a further portion to build, a distance of
about 1,800 feet. This portion of the
spur is where the trouble is caused
The 0. P. R. surveyed this part last
spring, and have secured the right of
way by filing the plans officially and
according to law at Ottawa. About a
week ago President Hill of the Great
Northern authorized a surveying
party to survey a line from the city to
the Le Roi and Centre Star. It ap
pears that they staked the same right
of way as that ot the 0. P. R. A day
or two ago the officials at Nelson
were notified of Mr. Hill's action.
The officials here at once notified
President Shaughnessy of what was
tuking place and they were ordered to
proceed with the laying of the track
at once.
Rapid action was taken and W. P.
Tierney, of this city, was given the
contract to do the work and he left
for Rossland yesterday with about
20 men. It Is thought that by this
step any trouble that might arise will
be stopped.
WRECKAGE OFF FLATTERY.
Possibility That a Large Steamer Has
Foundered.
Seattle, Nov. 8.���Captain N. John
son, of the Nome schooner Nellie
Thurston, which returned to this port
this afternoon, says he saw a lot of
wreckage about 200 milos off Capo
Flattery, and thinks a large steamer
has founderd. The Bea was so high at
the time that he was unable to make
any close examination of the wreckage, but it consisted of lumber painted on both sides like the upper works
of a steamer. Also portions of rigging. He also saw a lifeboat about
25 feet long, half submerged, but was
not close enough to see any name. He
��� c !"ee saw an air tank from a life boat
Moating several miles farther along
I Io passed through the wreckage on
November 2, and gives It as his opln
ion that the disaster occurred probably in the 24 hours previous.
The building of tho bridgo a. -on
the Columiba about two miles east of
Kobson muy havo a considerable effect
on that town. It is not decided as
yet whether the C. P. R. will abandon that town or not. Thero was a
proposition on foot to move the round
house from there to Fholt,ncur Greenwood which would leave Robson little
else than its name.
