Special Meeting of the City

THE STREET OAR ROUTE
Effeoted With tbe Gas Oom-
OouipTonii-io
-The Street Railway Will Be
Ctnmienoju  at Occe-
l��nj"
\ Bpeoial meeting of tho Oity Oonn-
-il was beld yesterday afternoon in
order todiBonss tho report of the Board
3f Works relative to the lnyiug of gas
pipes mill also to consider the plans of
tbe new street railway.
There wore present tho Mayor, Aldermen Thomson. Fletcher, Beer, the
Citv Clerk, the Ultv Engineer nnd
the' City Solicitor. The report of the
Hoard of Works was then road. It
.lined that a contract hotween the Oity
imtl the. Knotenav Eleotrio Supply
nud Construction Co. was to he submitted to Council, hut it transpired that
the Oity Solieitor had been unable to
prepare* the same as yet. The Board
also submitted for the consideration of
Council the correspondence they had
received from the Gas Company in reference to the laying of pipes.
Mr. Merrifield and Dr. Doolittle
were present nnd the following suggestion, embodied in tho form of a letter
from the Gbb Company's engineer (Mr.
Mortis), was discussed :
"Gentlemen:���Referring to too con
ferenoe with yonr Hoard of Works this
a. in., we will ngree to place services for the use of each individual
premises on linker sti'.-et to the curb
line, from Kails street to Hall street
anil to perform all the same within 80
days Iroin the commencement of lny-
inR our mnis on 1'nkor street bet.vesn
poiuta mentioned. Wo remain, yours
trulv,
THE   ECONOMICAL   GAS   &   APPARATUS CO., LI), per D   Morris,
Resident Engineer,"
Alderman Fletcher asked what wonld
bo doughy the (ins  Company   if  the
City were  to   decide   to  pave   Bokor
street. '���
Mr. Merrifield said that in tint case
he was prepared to extend the oouneo-
tious from the. curb linn to the lot line
nnd to the cellars of the premises if
desired.
On the motion of Aid. Beer the report was adopted.
A letter from Mr. Halifax Hall was
rend.enclosing a plan of proposed route
for the s.reet railway aud begging the
City to give them leave to start work
at once and not delay until the contract was prepared ns delay meant ex
penso to tho company.
The Oity Solicitor said that the eon-
tract should be drawn up by the Company's solicitors nnd approved by him
on behalf  of the City.
Aid.Beer had a long discussion with
Mr. Hall and Mr. Peters as to the Intentions of the Tramway Oompany
with regard to a roote thorugh Carbonate and Mill streets, Fnally on the
motion of Aid. Beer it was resolved
that the Tramway Co. 's route he approved and that,subject to the terms of
tho by law, they be   allowed   to   onm-
to tne Oity to make what allow anee I
they thought fit to the oompany to-'
wards the expense of moving the rook.
The Oonnoil unanimously approved
cf this suggestion ��nd intimated to Mr.
PeterB that his company would thereby receive duo consideration from
them.
A resolution to this effect was moved
by Aid. Fletcher and carried.
Mr. Peters then asaed if the Oity
would insist on the 13000 deposit being paid down by tho Oompany? He
surmised that this sum bad been demanded in tbe first plane merely as a
proof of bonne fides. The by-law called
tor this payment within four mouths
of its passage. The Council seemed to
unanimously differ with Mr. Peters
and intimated tbat they would look
for the |3,000 when the oontraot was
signed.
Mr. Peters said the money would be
forthcoming and asked tbe Oonnoil
what they wore prepared to do about
Baker street bridge. The bridge at
present was not strong enough for
street oar traffic Would the Oity
strengthen or contribute to the expense
of strengthening it?
The Mayor said that the bridge wns
strong enough for the City's requirements. Iu a year it would probably bo
tilled np underneath aud he did not
sie why the Oity should contribute a
cent, towards strengthening tho bridge
so as to suit the convenience of the
Trnmwny Oo.
Aid. Beer said that the Oity was
willing to contribute towards tbe
strengthening of the bridge if tbe Oity
really r quired it.
Mr. Peters remarked that bis company really desired to got out of the
responsibility of making the bridge
strong enough for street oar traffic If
the City Council would instruct tbe
Oity Engineer to carry out tbe necessary alterations hiscompauy would pay
tbe whole cost of the same.
Finally it was resolved to atiioum
the discussion on this point.
On the motion of Aid, Thomson it
was resolved that a letter b.i written
to tbo Chief Commissioner of Lands
aud Works urging a speedy settlement
of the recreation  ground question.
At the request of Aid. Beer the advisability of making a new sidewalk
iu frontof Dr. Hall's bouse,at the oor-
tier of Hall and Silica streets, and to
extend tho present sidewalk on Hen-
dryx streot for 120 feet north from
the corner of Silicit street, was���refeired
to the Board of WorkB.
Aid. Fletcher thought that some notion should be taken by the Council
with reference to the dosing of Silica,
Railway and Slooan streets by the late
Government. Portions of these
streets has been actually sold to tbe
Hall Mines, Ltd., thereby cutting out
4!) Creek trail and doing nway with a
publio highway whioh had been iu use
for more than 15 years.
Then Aid. Beer engaged the attention
oi the Oonnoil on tho Eastern (end)
questiou and this grave matter was
discussed for a considerable time.
It leaked out that property owners in
the east end were anxious to get rid
of some of the present inhabitants of
that qnnrter and the said property
owners seem to think that property
owners iu the west end are anxious to
divert building in tbat direction and
pnrsno a policy of laissez fnire with
regnrd to "the eastern establishments.
But nothing was definitely deoided
upon and the metting adjourned at 5
p. m.

there, be said, kept mineral water in

with its sulphuretted hydrogen and

Sir. OharleB Tupper congratulated
Mr. Mulock for the lucid and clear
way he put his resolution. He also
congratulated the Government for being able to iuduce Great Britain to aid
in the enterprise. Mr. Oharlton
thought there were other euterpirses
audi as the Hudson's Bay Railway,
and Ottawa nnd Georgian Bay canal
that wen more deserving of ntteution.
He, however, would not oppose the
soheme. Messrs. Oraig aud usler sup
ported the scheme.

'i'ho   proposed   route is   es   follows:
Tho central lino will be in Bnker street

portions of tho City, connecting   them
With Baker street, the wharf  and   the
O. P, R, depot.
Mr. Hnlifax Hall's application for
reek for ballast was then considered.
Aid. Beer thought that Rome arrangements might be made whereby the bluff
In Hnll street, between Silica and
Hall streets might bo reduced.
Aid, Fletcher said the Oity could not
afford to open out auy more streets this
Year and was therefore opposed to Hny
farther expenditure by the Oity on
tbem.
Aid. Thomson suggested that the
Tramway Co, be allowed to take rook
from Victoria streot, between Josephine and Hendryx streets, provided
they take at least (500 ynrdB; and thnt,
stfbjeofc to the supenvsion of tho Oity
Kngineer, the Oity Contribute *100 to-1
wards tho expense of removing the
same.
Mr. Hnliax Hall snid that he would
not advise his company to agree to take
as much as 600 yards of rook.
Aid. Thomson pointed out that this
was tho lowest figure mentined by him
(Mr, Hall) in his letter to the Oity.
Aid. Fletcher said there wonld be no
tdvantage to the Oi'y if loss than that
HAS KRUGER  RESIGNED?
Capetown, July 85���Advices have
been received here confirming the report thnt President Kruger nf the
South African   Repnblio has resigned.
London, .Inly 2fi. ��� According to the
Capetown correspondent of the Daily
Mail President Kruger's resignation
is regarded ns a cute move to create
a crisis for the purpose of tiding over
the interval until the rainy seascn begins. The correspondent says that tbe
Dutch extremists ascribe it to a deep
British game for the pensioning of
President Kruger in order to allow the

which has prevailed   in  the  vicinity
of the oapital, reports   from the country  generally  and   particularly   from

the resignation of President Kruger of
the  South African   Republic   are conflicting, but acoording to tbe best information he actually resigned office conditionally.     Tbo    Volksraad,    while
mintaining its opposition to President
Krnger's view ou the dynamite concession, has   given   its   assurance tbat it
, still   had   the   utmost  confidence  in

be   has   withdrawn   his   resignation.
As to difference of oninion nnthe question of dynamite   concession,   General
P. J. Joubert,   Vioe President   of   the
Ropublio and a majority of  the Volksraad favor the cancellation of the mon
opoly while Kruger supports  it.   The
majoritv of the   Volksraad   desires   to

LILIPUTIAN  STRIKERS.
New   York,   July    25���About  800
rntes nnd   other  improved traneporta
tion facilities whioh have been secured
by the Government  from the railways
bnve come none too soon.       Tbe oiin-
pletion of tho Soulauges  Canal, which
iB the   last   link   in the   chain of improvement   giviug   the    long desired
fourteen feet of waterway,   is   of   immense importance to the Dominion for
it will reduce the cost   of   transportation from the western harvest fields to
the sea-board   nearly   fifty   por  cent.
Th. importance of this fact to   Canadian shipping   interests  may be judged
from   tbe statement of n   Chicago  paper recently to the effect thnt "tbe cost
of transporting  lake freight to a  tide-
wnter will be reduced beyond the  possibility ot  profitable   competition  by
nny other existing route."   The pocu-
Inrity nbout the whent mnrket is   that
the world's current  prices are fixed in
Liverpool,   without   tae slightest   regards    to  looal   costB,    consequently
The   Hague,    July    25.-Wm.    T.
Stead, made the   following  statement
today in reference to the   voik   of the
Pence  Commission:   The   Conference
achieved a grent success, inuoh greater
than tho delegntes anticipated and the
result   was  achieved   largely   by   the
deliberations of cnpahle men from   all
parts of the world, determined   to accomplish   something   worth their   assembling together. The result surprised all   of   them and the magnitude of
the  gains   is   imperfeotly  understood
even by the conference. The establishment of a permanent   court of arbitra-
tion on the A.nerican principle of   revision, plus the French   declaration of
the duty of neutrals to recommend disputing  powers to refer to  arbitration
court rather   than   to war. represents
vast progress in   the  evolution of human sooiety.    Tbe  recognition of  the
duty to represent to disputants tbe desirability of resorting to the arbitration
court  entails   no   obligation   on    the
Americans consistent with their traditional   policy.   This    is   mnde   absolutely clear by the  deolnrt-tion  signed
by the   American  delegation, read   in
full at tbe conference today and entered ou the   records.   Tho relations   between Americans  and other  delegates
notably the English, German and Rus-
sinn, has been extremely friendly. The
Englishmen    and    Americans    noted
throughout almost like a joint  delegation.    This wns due to uo arrangement
or direction,but solely because both na
tions found common ground of defense
common interests, civilization and hn-
mnuity.    The   only   point   on   whioh
Englishmen  failed    to    support   the
Americans   was the resolution   forbidding the capture of private   properties
at sen.    To   this,   tbe   English representatives   were   not opposed but   the
British Cabinet being divided, the delegates had no instructions   regarding
the iuntier nnd sustained from   taking
nction.    After the  aibitration convention is signed, it will probably be open
to adhesion   of  all other powers,   not
represented at the conference on condition thnt no original  signntory of convention objeot.   This right   to  blackball a   power wishing to join the convention was insisted upon by it in  order to prevent the adhesion of the Pope
and, by England   on   nocount   of  the
Trnnsvnal.    It   is   hoped that all   the
South American   Stntes   will come in.
It is the unanimous opinion of all delegates that the conference begins a new
epoch  nnd   thnt  the   good   seed   now
sown will bear a   rich   harvest hereafter. ''
The Hague, July 25.���At the plenary sitting of Peaoe Conference this
evening in deference to Sir Julian
Panncefote, hend of the British delegation and in order to seoure unanimity, the Danish delegates consented that the reference to landing of
cables be struck out of the list contained in Article 58 of convention on the
laws of wnr. Turkan Pasha, head of
the Turkish dolegntion, mnde a formal
ndhesion to the convention on condition that Turkey's recourse thereto be
purely option. It ib understood that
about half tbe pjwers inoluding these
forming the Dreibund will sign the
arbitration convention immediate!,).
A FORMIDABLE ARRAY.
Rennes, July 25.���Among   the   seventy   witnesses   summoned to   testify
before the   Dreyfus   court martini   by
the Government Commissary   are  the
following:   M.   Casimer-Perier,    ex--
president of Franco; M. Oavaignao and
General Billott, both former ministers
of   war;   General   Zurlinden,   former
military   governor of  Paris;   General
Ohanoine,   who    suoceeded    General
Zulrlinden ; General Reget, whose evi
deuce in tbe first  trial of Oapt. Dreyfus has been published in Figaro; General Boisdeffre,   formerly   chief of the
general Btaff; Ool.   Picquart. who wns
sentenced   to   be   dismissed from   the

incriminating  document in the Dreyfus case,   and Mile.   Pays, reputed   to

IT DOESN'T LIKE IT.
Washington, July  25.���The  Alaska
boundary situntion has   been much relieved as a result of the conferenoe yesterday between Secretary Hay and the
British Charge d'Affaire, Mr.   Tower,
that   thoBe   who havo  taken   a   most
active part in tbe negotiations fell tbat
they can   leave  the   city for the sum
mer vacation. Mr. Hay will go withfn
a few days and Mr.   Tower leaves tomorrow   night  for Newport.   One of
the affects of renewing direct negotiations in   Washington  is  to  establish
tbat   tbe Anglo-American commission
cannot reassemble  in Quebeo on August 2; that day is only a week off and
as yet Great   Britain has not named a
commissioner to take tbe plaoe of the
late Lord Herscholl.    Tbe purpose DOW
is to secure some mode of settling  tbe
boundary question, and thus clear tbe
way for   the meeting of tbe   Commission lute in the fall,   Tbe strong  language   used   by   Sir   Wilfrid  Laurier
aud Sir Oharles   Topper has not found
expression in   the official negotiations,
which nre proceeding with every  out-
ward evidence of good will.
,    Paris,   July   25.���Tbe     Republique
Francaise referring  to tho  reciprocity
1 between France and the United States
signed at Washington   yesterday says:
Washington  dispatohes   announce the
consummation of the France-American
trenty.    An  enormous blunder against
which we endeavored to put the  Government on its guard has been   consu-
mated aud M.Miller aud Delcasse have
betriyed   French    industry    to    the
United States in these two branches of .
oar national   production.    Ruins   will!
be heaped upon ruins. True, the treaty
has not been ratified and we affirm that
it  will    not  be without   discussion.
Industrial and agricultural associations
on every  side,   are  indeed  becoming
agitated and manifold  protests are being made   and when the Ohamber   reassembles   the  Government  will  find
itself face to face with   an  opposition
formidably equipped   with   arguments
nnd which will energetioolly lay  bare
the fntnl consequences of   the   convention which   so  cruelly betrays French
interests.

all important details of the dispatches embodying Canada's position
with reference to tbe Lynn Oanal strip.
Sir Julian Pauncetote's return it is
exepeoted, will advance matters owing
to his knowing both tbe American and
Canadian positions.
Washington. July 25.��� At today's cabinet meeting the   main topio was  tbe
Alaskan boundary line dispute.   Secretary Hny explained   the   status of negotiations   now   in   progress between
himself   and Mr. lower,   the  British
Ohargo d' Affaire and said he was not
without hoim   that the vexed  problem
would be solved by direct negotiations.
Great   Britain   now seems willing  to
consider the   proposal   of   the  United
States to give Canada the  privilege of
a port  of entry iu tbe Dominion while
retaining   absolute   sovereignty    over
Lynn Canal and it is round this sort of
a    proposition   tbat    hope   of  settlement now hovers.   The speeches of Sir
Wilfrid   Laurier and Sir Oharles  Topper   came   np incidently bnt no   serious attention was given them.    Settlement   by direct negotiation would   be
easiest as well as tbe most satisfactory
method of disposing   of   this troublesome question  and   such a  settlement
from facts developed at today's cabinet
meeting is  regarded as   by no   means
out of realm of probabilities.
KLONDIKE NEWS.

A SAMPLE  SENTENCE.
"It is a noteworthy fact that all the
mining companies that refuse to pay
the standard rate of wages nre mnuaged
by mon bom across the Atlantic or
south of the interuational boundary
line." These words are taken from
the Nelson organ of demagogism,otherwise known ns The Tribune. They
are misleading, which was intended;
tbey nre inconsistent with other contentious of the paper, which arises from
stupidity ; aud in one respect nt least
are not truthful, whioh is surprising
only in its moderation. There is no
mining company in the district thnt
refuses to pny the stnndard rate of
wages. It is entirely untruthful to represent that the demauds of the Union
constitute tbe ptandnrd. Thnt is a
matter that is still subject to arrangement. Because the officers of the Union declare their determination not to
accept less for eight hours' work than
they nnd previously been receiving for
ten is not n reason to regnrd it as con
olusive of a standard. If there is a
standard at all it is the rate which
the miniug companio? say they are
willing to pay, aud although the matter is still in an unsettled condition
this is the one that really prevails, be
cause of tbo fnct tbut it is the one ac
cepted by a ninjority of the miners
who are actually working.
In the santeuce quoted and in other
parts of the same paper an effort is
made to create the impression thnt
aliens are largely responsible for the
resistauco to tho demands cf the Union. Tho aliens referred to are Ameri-
enns, for there are no others. It is
these Americaus who are protesting bo
loudly against the Eight-Hour law,
and who refuse to submit to the
"standard" thnt is no standard. Yet
when another point iB desired to be
mnde this pnper invariably refers to tbe
United States, to show that an eight-
hour day is prevalent there and that
the rate of wages is the same as demanded here. If the Americans in
their own country are satisfied with a
short day and long pay, it would be
curious to kuow how residence on this
side of the bouudary line operates to
alter their dispostion. The two contentions are inconsistent,of course, but
the demagogic organ has been too stu
pid to see it. But the story of these
aliens resisting tho law will Berve to
inflame the prejudices and passions
of tbo miuers, and that is the paper's
chief object.
We see it more clearly in considering
the  point   Bought  to   be made iu the
above sentence.    The miners are   Canadians, and their attention is callod to
the fact thnt the persons who refuso to
do tbem   justice   are   Englishmen   or
Americans,   men   born  across tbe At
lantio  or   south   of the   internationa
boundary line.    If the Canadian   min
ers will but consider this, their India;
nation nt the   thought   that foreigners
are ondoavoring to   rule   this   country
must grow to huge dimensions.  Here is
the  demagogue   and  mischief.breeder
exposed iu nil his nakedness.    If strife
between tho mineiH and mine  owners
cannot   be   fanned in any other  way
the  jenlonsy   of   Canadians   must  be
aroused against   theso men who  come
in from other countries   to lord it over
thorn.    It   is   a   desperate  nttempt at
breeding mischief, but we do not think
it will ha\o any effect.   It cannot very
well  appenl   to the  American   miners
who are in tho  country, aud Canadian
miners are, we should  hope, much too
sensible  to   be   affected by   it.    Tbey
know that it wns Americans who   first
cnino into the country nud   discovered
its great woalth, and they   know   that
its crying need todny is capital   to develop that wealth.    Canadians   cannot
depend on their   own resources, which
are limited  anyway, nud   nro   mainly
employed in other channels.    And until quite  rocoutly   thoy  could not regnrd themselves ns  n   mining   people.
We   invite   Englishmen   nnd   Aineri-
onns to  oome   in with   tteir   cnpitnl
We havo tho Intent wealth ; they   hnve
the   menus   to   develop   it;   therefore
we not only   inivte  thorn,   but   mnke
tbem welcome.    It  is the   ory of  the
whoU  country, for   without   capital,
development will languish.    Canadiun
miners understand this, quite �����   well
as other olassos  of Canadians,   nnd no
one extends a gladdor welcome to  for.
lign capital thnu they. And they are
:ousistent enough to admit that no one
is ns much entitled to manage the
mines developed by this cnpitnl ns the
men who supply it. Who else, -pray,
lias any right to manage them? If the
wretched spirit of tbo sentence quoted
were to possess us, we might as well
dose down our mines nud abandon the
country.
We have rend with tnnah interest
tho booklet entitled "An English Ex-
oert on the Klondike," tho expert being Mr. A N. O. Treadgold, M. A.,
late Soholar of Hertford Oollego, Oxford, nnd specinl commissioner for
Tho Mining Journal, who went out in
IH'JT and spent tho better part of a
yonr in tbe Yukon regiou. The book
is uncommonly well written, nnd is as
entertaining ns a novel. One gets
the impression that Mr. Treadgold is
telling tho exact truth of the country
and the conditions affecting it, as it
appealed to him ;and also thnt tho title
is justified in claiming him ns an expert, for he writes with an unoer-
Standing of everything he saw. He
holds up to us the Klondike exnotly as
it is. Get.rgo N. Morang & Co., Toronto, are the Cnnadinn publishers.
We nre not obliged to accept tb9
Washington dispatches on the Alaskan
boundary dispute at their face value ;
they will probably suffer nothing if
subjected to a rather heavy discount.
It is too soon, at any rate, to conclude that negotiations are off. Indeed, when one thinks ot it, it is hard
to imagine tbat they enn be declared
off, for one fails to uuderstnnd what
renson could be assigned for it. The
Americans cannot, for very shame's
sake, refuso to arbitrate in tho last
resort. On tbe British side nothing is
demanded or desired beyond what the
true meaning nnd intent of the
Treaty will give us. To refuse the
opportunity to ascertain this would
put the United StnteR so absurdly in
the wrong that it is impossible to conceive the peoplo of Washington submitting to it. There must be arbitration���or war, as stated by the Premier
the other day, and of course war is
out of the question. If there is delay
in arriving at arbitration it is probably due to a desire at Washington,
perhaps also in Loudon, to bring about
a settlement through compromise.
It is said tbat Mr. Fisher, Dominion
Minister of Agriculture will visit the
Province In season to take in tho Fall
fairs. He will be welcome. It is also
thought that Mr Paterson, Minister of
Customs, Dr. Borden, Minister of Militia, nnd Mr. Fielding, Minister of
Finnuce, will journey ns far as tbe Pacific Const sometime during recess, if
not soon after prorogation. If thoy
oome in the right frame of mind, they
will see and learn much to instruct
them. But the Minister who will
have opportunities to learn most is
Mr. Mulock, who is understood to contemplate a visit with tbo rest. The
postal service is bo wretched that he
could employ the entire fall and winter in detecting flaws and mending
them. Should Mr. Mulock oome it is
to be hoped his friends will indnco
him to take a turn through the Koote-
nays before facing for borne.
Mr. Kelso, who is the superintendent
under the Government of the Children's Aid Sooiely, organised under
authority of an Act of the Ontario
Legislature, has issued another pamphlet on its work in tho rescue and
protection of neglected aud homeless
ohildren. No one who follows tho
operations of the Society enn fail to be
impressed with the grent good that is
nchieved by it. Tho time may not be
quite ripe for a Bimilar institution in
this Province, but when it comes we
shall do well if wo embrace tho opportunity to do as much for neglected
and homeloss childhood.
Much attention is b <ing paid by can
ltalists to the Windermere mining district in Enst Kootenay.

Mr BoBeudnile, In BpeaKinR to llie

could not too Strongly urf?o upon mine
owners and those who bold tjood pros-
ofiots tbe importance of this exhibit.
There is alwnys a lar^o attendnnoe
of American mining men at this annual festival and therefore tbe rich ores
from the district will receive their
merited attention. Nelson sadly
needs more advertising. So very fre-
o'.ently is heard the remark from
BtrangeM on their arrival here "Why I
liml no idea yon had such a thriving
town iu the heart of the Kootenays as
Nelson is!"
It is probable that 111 a town like
Spokane, a well arranged mineral exhibit will attiael more practical attention than iu the great city of Paris.
Mr. Bonendailo therefore urgently re
quests all mine and prrspeet owners to
commnnionte with him in reference to,
111 send to him mineral specimens for
Ihe Spokane show���which, by the bye
commences on October 1 of this year

BEV. MR. HOSE'S   ILL   HEALTH.
At-the conclusion of bis sermon in
the First Baptist ohnrch on Sunday
morning Rev. Mr. Koso, the pastor
niario 11 few remarks which deeply
touobod the large congregation present:
'1 wish to say a word to you this
morning," he said "before you return to yonr homes, a word which I
hud loped not to utter for many years.
Dnriug tho last few months I have
heen conscious of increasing inability
to attend to tlei many duties incumbent noon me. 1 have realized tbat if
my years of service were not to be
materially shortened that I must seek
rest and change at once. Having consulted phvsciaus and been repeatedly
teld that reBt wns imperative I
have decided reluctantly yet sincerely
and positively to ask you to accept my
resignation nt your first business meeting. I shall go probably to the "Old
Homestead" and tin re rest for a
month or two and then health permitting spend the winter in study at
Newton Theological Seminaiy. I fco
with .your approavl and blessing."
Although expected oy some members
of bis congregation the announcement
came as a great surprise to many. After snrivoe on Sunday evening a meeting of the congregation was held and it
was unanimously deoided that every
thing possible muse De dune to induce
Mr, Rose to reconsider his resignation. The fact thnt he has been suffering from ill health for some time was
taken into account and it was decided
to tender the pastor two months loave
of abseuce.during which time he could
return to his old homo and have a
complete reBt. If, at the end of thnt
time, his health is improved he would
he asked to continue his work here; if
not, tbe congregation would reluot-
autlv accept his resignation. Yesterday
a dt mutation from tho congregation
waited upon Mr. Kos3 and conveyed
to him the decision of the meeting.
He accepted tbo offer and will leave
for h s home in Nova Scotia next
Week. Next Sunday will consequently
be his last here for two months.
At the end of that time he will return
to Nel��m, whether or not it is to continue his pastorate.
l'eople of all denominations in the
Oity will earnestly hope that Mr. Rose
wil find health in his rest nud that it
wul not be necessary for hiin to sever
his connection with his church here���
a church that he has built up to be one
ot the strongest in the Oity. He is
popul ir with ad thac know him and
ns would bo n hard place to fill. It
has been tnrougb his too great zeal that
his church should beoome powerful
tnat his health has been impaired.
THE  LACROSSE CLUB
fined to members of tbo Lacrosse club
but will be open to all interested in
the national game. Tho club still
lucks sufficient money for its (Joast
trip and tonight ways and means for
raising tbo rest will be considered. It
is altogether probable that the club
will run a Sunday excursior to Hal-
four. A steamer will be chartered aud
tbo day spent away from the heat of
the Oity. Such an excursion should
do well patronized, both on account
of the pleasure it will give and for
the sake of the lacrosse club. A smoking concert may also he given. The
trip to the Coast will occupy about
twelve days

AEHAID OF   THOSE   WHO DON'T
ADVERTISE.
A well known Philadelphia man,
temporarily viBiting iu Washington,
was going somewhat out of his wav
to ie>ich a florist. When his attention
was 01 Ued to the fact tbat thorn were
other florist near,ho said : "I am seeking the man because he advertises in
tbe newspapers. Eor the last few years
I have made it a rule never to deal
with any buaiueas man who doesn't
advertise. I wonted some flowers to
send off in a box by mail, and I looked
in the paper this morning tor the ad-
vertismeiit of n florist. I don't know
any of th ) placos here; but the rule is
a good one, and I'll bet you anything
you say tbat I can get what I want
nt this place and get it cheaper than
anywhere else. The business man that
doesn't advertise I have alway found
narrow-minded, selfish, non-enterprising, penny wise and pouud foolish,
oven if be didn't cheat me outright."

GENERAL YMIR  NEWS
American Capitalist* Have Purchased th.
Galena Farm Group in the Slooan���
Other Mining Hews.
Ymir, July   25. ���(Special)���One   of
the   most   important   strikes    which
has taken place in   this immediate locality, has   just been brought to  light
ou the Apex.    This property is siluat-
ed on Big Four Mountain   on   Hidden
Oreek and is about  seveu   miles  from
the railroad.    The property was   located August, WM, by Fred Boyer & Gilbert Peon.    The ledge is a  solid  mass
of mineral lying between   Granite and
seuite, and carries mangenese of   iron,
copper pyrites    and    sulphates.    The
ledge rnns from i% to 7 feet in width,
the claim is nituated on a high mountain and is 2,000 feet   from tbe croek.
AssayB niado on the rock   just brought
in went  copper, |ti7.2<l, silvei 60 cents
with    traces   of    geld.    Total  assay
$07. St).    Your  correspondent  saw   the
assay receipts and can   vouch  for   the
truthfulness.
Mr. James Tyner has just returned
from Sixteen Mile creek where he has
been doing his assessment work on the
Morning aud Kvuning Star and Fair-
view claims. The property is looking
up well, the ledges on the different
olaims being well defined and strengthening. Mr.. Tyner states that the
country is alive with men who are
prospecting or doing their yearly
assessment.
Hon. J. Fred Hume, M. P. P., has
written a party here tbat tbe appropriation made ai tbe last eititng for roads
aud trails in our vicinity will be expended at once. This is very good
news as tbe roads aud trails nre badly
needed.
F. S. Algiers has some very promising mineral which he has taken fiom
a iiew ledge which he has just opened
up on the Hose (Quartz mineral claim.
Tbe olaim is within a quarter of a
mile of Ymir, and is owned by Dr.
H. L. A. Kellar and a Mr. Towusend.
Wort will be continued on tbe prop
erty with a view tu making a mine out
of tbe claim.
Jack   Dewar who is part  owner  in
the Good Hope property has some  fine
mineral in the shape of a   decomposed
rei  oxide   which be  has run   into ou
the above property ; it is easily   milled
and can be panned when Free Gold   is
visible to the naked eye    Assays from
this  rock  wont  $1117.    This   property
is  situated ou Wild Horse creek, about
nine  miles  from   Ymir, aud   has  for
a long time been considered one of the
most puimisiug propeities on the creek.
The   syndicate    owning    aud   now
operating  the    Yellowstone   mine  on
Sheep creek haa decided   to  commence
tbe building of a wagon road from Sal-
mo to the  property.   The    distance is
14 mil.is and the riso in the whole distance only 000 feet   above Salmo.    The
Government will assist iu the construction of a stamp mill; it  will  have 10
stamps for the start but  tbe   building
will be so constructed   tbat  an   additional 10 stamps can be added witbout
reconstructing the buildiug.
The Salmo Consolidated property
winch is situated within seven miles
of Salmo are preparing to recommence
working the property. This is considered a very promising piece of mineral
ground. Considerable work has already been done on tbe property, but
owing to tbe surface water coming in
faster than it could be taken out.it was
deemed advisable bv the management
to shut down tbe property till the surface water caused by the melting of
tho snow had ceased.
S. DesBrisay, President of the Sim-
ooe Gold Mining Compauy, who are
operating the Big Home Group aud
Kienze Macfarlauo, M. E., went out
to tbe property this morning to inspect the work which U now being
done. This company expect to have
oro ready to ship tbi�� winter when it
will be rawbided out. If the Government can be prompted to assist in the
construction of a road up Porcupine
Creak, tbe company intend to add tbe
balance of the amount required to
build this mnch needed road.
Much work is being done on Barrett
Creek. Properties in that locality
are looking very enconraigng to the
owners. Ore in tbat neighborhood is
mostly free milling.
mda, Mont.    This property   is   situ- I
a'ed in the   Silvortou camp iu tho   fa- J
mous Slocan   district, British   Cohim-!
bin, and   is   ubout   10 miles from   the1
well known   Payne mine.    The   prop-;
i rty has been in tbe control of an Eng-
ihsh   company,   nnd   has   been   rather
I poorly managed of late.    The English-
men have speut over $300,000 in developing the prop3rty,   aud now it is one
of  the best known   mines   iu   British
Columbia.
"The Galena Farm is what would
le considered a very high grade silver
:iud lead proposition in this state, although it is no' so rich as the Payne.
The mine has been a producer for
some time.aud under the new management thu output will be greatly increased.
"When seen about the matter yesterday, Mr. MoOune admitted having
made the purchase, but dccliued to
Hate what price was paid for the property. He stated tbat a concentrator
of nt least f>0 tons capacity would be
put np immediately, and that this
would    probably   be onlarged   in   the
near future."

Tbe Morning group consisting of   14
claims was sold duriug tbe week to P.
C. StoeBB   and   C.   F.   Lucas of   Spokane,   consideration not made knowu.
These     claims   were formerly   owned
by Messrs. Morris aud Hughes and  by
tbem sold to Spokane parties about two
years ago who for some  unaccountable
reason defaulted iu their payments and
no assessment work   being   done,    tho
claims reverted to the government nud
were    then relocated by Wm. M. Violet and John W   Wheeler, who are the
vendors   in the present  sale.    One of
the new comers visited the claims  recently and expressed himself   as much
pleased and that the report of the owners upon the property  was  most   conservative and that he found tne claims
much better than  he  had anticipated.
While on the ground he put iu  a  few
shotB and blew   out a lnrge quantity of
copper ore showing it to   be  of exrel-
