Mr. W. F    Robertson Returns to Nelson With a Number  of Kpeoimens.
Mr. W. F. Robertson, the Provincial Mineralogist, is iu Nelson superintending the packing of the mineral
exhibits for tho forthcoming Pans Exposition. Yesterday Mr. Robertson
showed a representative of The Miner
some line specimens nt the Bunk of
Montreal. These were eoutributed by
tho Silver King. Mountain Chief,
c'iokel Plate, Noble Five, Starli ht,
Payne, Washington, Last Chance,
Mine Bell, Best, Humboldt and others
Thespecimens are being packed;in strong
boxes made of two iuoh boarus. Fifteen oases are already packed at ltnelo
nnd await shipment. Over 40 spoci-
meus are at tho Government offices
here ready for paoking. The list of tho
different spooimens is not yet complet-
en owing to the delay of some mine
owners in sending thorn in.
Mr. Robertson has devo*ed ti great
pnit of his time 'o this collection, and
although his requests for specimens
have alwnys been gladly acceded, to
yet some of the mine owners havo not
been in too great a hnrrv to assist by
offering or sending nnsolioited specimens. This moans tbat the collootors
have to go to every mine personally
nnd also, in many cases, send there for
specimens. At the same time Mr. Robertson says there have been many notable exceptions. A few more small
snmpleB���np to six or eight itches or
even Rtnaller���woold be very acceptable. Mr. Robertson, having tak.in up
ihe mailer, is anxious to sen that it is
thoroughly done and would like to s.'e
every mine in Kootonay contribute tn
Ihe exhibit. However the time is now
drawing short nud within the next
few da>s all specimens mnst be packed and shipped to Ottawa where they
will be classified aud arranged. Those
ivh>, have not contributed snmplos are
therefor leqnested to do so at once.
THE  DRAMA   DRAGS  ON
Colonel Picquart Continues His Evidence
in Favor of Dreyfus.
CONFRONTED BY   GENERAL   ROGET
HARMLESS   HOUSE   BREAKERS.
Some Men That are   Responsible For
Burglar Stories.
In the last few months thero hnve
been three attempts at housebreaking
in the City. This hns made some people believe that a band of burglars are
operating in Nelson. The last attempt nt W. A. Galliher's residence
brought matters to a bead and Chief
of Police Jarvis hns been pestered by
applications for special attention to be
paid to the houses of those whose nervousness leads them to make the request. Tbere are also any amount of
stories about attempts at burglary and
the Chief of Police has investigated
a couple of them. In one case a poor
deluded indiivdual had been "out
with the bovs" and became* mixed 'up
with residences in bis unsuccessful
attempt to find one which fitted bis
latch key. Ho tacked baok and forward in several alleys and careered
from door post to gate post thorehy
giving uervous householders the idea
that some bold, bud burglar was endeavoring to secure their silverware.
This inebriated citizen conld not gain
entranoe to his own house let alone
any other ono. Drunken men have
been at tbe bottom of most of the burglar stories.
Bnt Chief Jarvis does not intend to
let these caronsers bother the citizens.
After this he iutends to "run in"
any man who has been celebrating too
enthusiastically and is found promenading on the pnblio streets; after the
more sober minded of the community
are wrapped in the arms of Morpheus.
Hitherto it has been tbe custom to
head the muddled mortals for their
homes and set thero going in the hope
that thev would not fall by the wny
side. But after this they will be headed for the police cells.

Revelations of How a Spy Was Sent to Italy-���
An Uneventful Day.
^Rennes, Aug. 18.���When the Dreyfus trial was resumed in the Lyceo at
7 :25 this morning Col. Picquart was
called to tbe witness stand and continued bis deposition which was interrupted yesterday by adjournment.
The conflict in testimony of Picquart
and Bertilion on certain points hnd
been used to discredit the former's evidence. Col. Picquart continuing said
Paty de Clam, on seeiug tho writing in the bordereau, forthwith declared it was of Mathieu Dreyfus the
brother of Capt. Dreyfus
The witness continuing said : "You
know that tin bordereau is the
joint workot Alfred and Mathieu Dreyfns. M. Bertillion said, 'that is tho
wiitiug of the bordereau.' M. Bertillion tried to discover wbero I had obtained the handwriting but the only
information imparted was that it was
current. At M. Bertillion's request J
left the photographs with him. Wh^j
be returned them he said lie adhered
to bis opinion and earnestly asked to
see the original, when i saw beyond a
doubt that the handwriting of the bordereau was Ester hay's and seeing that
the documents mentioned therein
might have been supplied by Easter-
hazy, that the words, 'I am going to
tho manoeuvres,' could perfectly well
apply to Esterhazy and that Esterhazy
had secretaries at his disposal to oopy
a document so voluminous as the firing manual, I resolved to consult the
secret dossier to see what part of the
treachery might be ascribed to Dreyfus, nnd to assure myself whether the
dossier contained anything indicating Esterhazy. I frankly ndinit I
was stupefied on reading the seoret
dossier: I expected to find matters of
gravity therein and found, iu short,
nothing but a document which might
apply just ns much to Esterhazy as
to Dreyfns, an unimportant document
mentioning Davignon and a document which it seemed absurd tojapply
to Dreyfus, namely the "Gette Cau-
aile D���" document. Lastly I recognized a report appended, in the handwriting of M. Guerin, which appeared to, be at least aa worthless as the
second document. It was then evening, I had stayed late nt the office in
older to examine the doonments thoroughly. I thought it over during the
night and next day I explained the
whole situation to General de Eoisde-
ffre. I took to his office the secret dossier, the fac-simile of tho borderean,
the petit bleu and the priuoipal papers
connected with my investigation of
Esterhazy. I wonder, now, if I had
one_or two interviews? Bnt I still see
General De Boisdeffre, as he examined
the seoret dossier with me, stop before he reached the eud aud toll me to
go into tho country, give an account of
the affair ;to General Gouz and ask
bim his advice. Before starting to see
General Gonz I oopied a note, fonr
pagej in length which I made September 1, containing mv resnme of the
Esterhazy affair. When I informed
General Gonz of all which had occurred he remarked,'So a mistake has been
made.' After my interview with
General Gonz I did not work any
longer on my own initiative; I said
nothing more until the return of Gen.
Gonz, September 15. At that time Esterhazy was at tho great manouevres.
Next the witness dwelt on the minors
in September 1896 of the projeot for
replacing Dreyfus by a mau-of-straw
and the discovery of the forged letter
supposed to be connected with the
same project. At abont the samo time
the campaign for and; against Dreyfus
was started by the newspapers.
At this state Col. Picquart, who had
been   speaking   for   four   and   a  half
I hours, was visibly distressed. He had
occasional attacks of coughing but
managed to continue, Col. Jouast not
showing any inclination to suspend
the session of the conrt in order to
give him needed rest.
The wituess then turned to the newspaper attacks ou Dreyfns, saying that
the information regarding the bordereau contained in them convinced him
that they had been inspired by somo
one closely connected with tho Dreyfns
affair. They could not be attributed
to Dreyfus' family, whilo they contained expressions familiar to Paty do
Clam, whom it would bo interesting
to hear on the subject. Describing his
Interview with General Gonz on September 1, Picquart said : " Whon I
asked for permission to continue the
investigation, insisting upou the danger of allowing the Dreyfus family to
proceed with their investigation alone,
the general replied that it was impossible to re open the affair. "
'' If you say nothing, nobody will
know."
"General" I replied firmly, "What
yon tell me is abominable. I do not
know what I shall do but I won't
carry this secret with me." (Great
sensatiou.)
"I at once left the room" added the
witness, That is what jeeurred. 1
know my account of this interview
will be disputed but I positively swear
to it."
The colonel next described his in en-
tious with regard to Esterhnzy which
General Gonz and De Boisdeffre had
forbidden him to carry out. He attached
particular importance to this point as
it oontained a olue to subsequent oc
ourrences. Later witness said that
while Paty de Olam evidently acted
Btrongly iu disguising himself with
a falso board and blue speotaoles perhaps he was authorized to do so. In
his opinion the only event of importance ir, the Dreyfus affair since dis
oovery of borderean was the Henry forgery perpetrated October 81, 1896.
Shortly beforo Genry perpetrated the
forgery,an agent named Giuede, Hery's
right hand man, prepared a report declaring M. Castelin (Republican Revisionist Deputy for Loas division of
Aisne) was about to play the hand nf
Dreyfus family by unmasking in the
chamber of deputies, the accomplices,
thus haviug the affair reopened. Dealing with tbe mission to Tunis which
Picquart Baid ought to have been entrusted to a commissary of police, wit
uess declared it was then that Henry, |
abandoning his underhand intrigues,
began a oampaign of open persecution.
Henry wrote to the witness aconsine
him of oommuiiioating information to
the press disolosing contents of seoret
documents and with attempting to
suborn officers in connection with the
petit bleu.
It was then Picquart learned of the
existence of the forged secret documents directed against him aud foresaw bis own ruin if the Dreyfns affafr
was reopened. In order to safe guard
himself he entrusted to a lawyer friend
aoertnin letter from General Gonz, nt
the same time acquainting the lawyer
with what he knew of Esterhazy and
instructing tbe lawyer how he should
intervene, if the occasion demanded
it.
When Picqunrt's furlough wns due,
Gonoral Lo-ilore, commanding in Tunis, was ordered to send Picquart to the
frontier of Tripoli. Leclere commented to the witness ou this abnormal or
der aud Picquart confided to the goneral the reasons for it and bis belief In
the innocence of Dreyfns.
Picquart here [created a sensation hy
incidentally remarking that the judges
in 18114 were shamefully deceived iu
having the document containing the
words, "Oelte Canaille do D���. " com
mnnioaled to them. Witness then bit
terly referred to the delays of the various machinations with the object of
Incriminating him. instigated by
Henry, Esterhazy and Paty do Olam,
Col. Jouast, president of Iho court,
having askea for explanations on certain points, Picquart said: " If I tell
you al! this gentleman, it is to show
what must have been the mental attitude towards me of the members of
the court martial which tried Esterhazy."    (Murmurs of assent.)
Witness said he regretted he had not
been given an opportunity to contradict his accusers at tbat court martial.
"I havo almost finished my task,"
added Picquart, "But I ask permission to refer to tbe wuy in which the
borderean came to tbe war office. I
have doubts in regard to the persons
who brought the bordereau. Two quite
different peisons could oertainlyuothave
delivered the bordoau in 1894. But
if an intelligent person had delivered
it he would certainly have insisted on
the value of the content.*."
Generals Roget and Mercier having
intimated a desire to speak, Col. Jouflst
asked Dreyfus if he had anything to
say and the prisoner replied in the
negative.
Goo. Roget then mounted the platform and asked Ool. Picquart fot explanations regarding the (juennilli
affair.
"Col. Picquart," said Roget, "attacked me this morning in regard tc
my speech for .the prosecution ou the
subject of the yuenuilli case. He said
he wr.s not present when the case was
iu progress and he described Col.
Henry as qoito incoriecl. I aBk Col.
Picqnart if he denies that he wrote
Captain Mareehul in order to connect
him with Galanti, that he wrote lo
tho public prosecutor enclosing documents and that ho wrote to the public
prosecutor a second time July 15. If
be denied this, I ask the cou*t to send
'or Marchnl and the dossier in the
Qoounilli affair."
Ool. Picquart ie died that there was
no need to threaten to produce the
dossier in order to make him reply. He
added: "I did not sny I wns absent
during the Quennilli aflair;I said I
was absent part of the time and that
painful duties did not permit me to
participate in is ns I ;wculd otherwise
have done."
"Did yon write these letters?" asked
Jouast.
"Yes," replied Picquart. "I remember writing letters in the case
though I do not remember exactly their
terms or dates.''
Col. Jouast theu said: "General Roget asked if you deny yon wrote a letter sending Galanti to Switzerland. "
"Galanf.i was an agent who gave ns
information about the Italian fort in
the neighborhood of Belfort," replied
Witness. "Finding ouiselves on the
point of being discovered, we , naturally, took measures to avoid it. That
is why Galanti was sent to Switzerland. "
"Then you wrote letters" said Roget, "and Ool. Henry was not concerned in this affair, but was sent to
Belfort against his will by you."
The witness acknowledged writing
letters but wanted to know thoir text,
and said he wonld like to see tbem so
that he oould be more precise "You
must have seen," he said, "how muoh
fals ihood    there    has   been   in   this
fair."
Iu reply to further questions Pio-
quart admitted sending documents to
Belfort for thoJQuennilli case. "But"
Picquart added, "they were handed to
the publio prosecutor."
ANOTHER  FIRE STATION.

tbe residential district np the hill
where the hard work of pulling tho
apoaratus up from Hall No. 1 would
neoessarily cause a delay that would
give a fire a good headway, is a popular move on the part of the Council as
it places nn equippinent in the midst
of a thi kly populated district. Nelson
has been remarkably free from conflagrations���so free, in fact. that
everyone expects that there is a big
blaze oomiug some day. However the

will be ready for the fiery fiend when
he pnts in au appearance. One of

Former Bartender  at  the
Phair Ends His Life
A DELIBERATE AFFAIR.
He Dressed Himself in  a Wbite  Night
Gown, Put on a White Silk Tie and
Died With His Arms Orossed.
William Woodruff, until a few days
ago barteuder at the Phair, committed
suicide at Spokane on Thursday.
Woodruff came to Nelson some months
ago and worked sucessively at the Nelson Hotel, The Office, and tbe Phair,
being longest at tbe last mentioued
place. He wns a tnll man with a light
red moustache and partly bald head.
He wns a Winnipeg old timer, baying
run the Oabluet Hotel there iu the
boom days. He originally came from
Woodstock, Ont., The Spokesman-
Review has the following account
of the affair:
William Woodruff was fonud lying
doad in his bed iu room 33 Bellevuo
house about T o'clock last evening. An
empty dram bottle of morphine and a
farewell message sorawl��dona pieoe of
paper gave evidence that is was a oaae
of suicide. Woodruff wns a barkeeper,
aboot 40 years of age and unmarried.
Ho came down from Nelson, B. 0.,
Monday night. He bad been employed
in that and other Kootenay oities for
several years. He stopped at the Pedi-
cord Hotel on Monday and Tuesday
nights.
Woduesday afternoon about 4
o'clock he engaged room UU at the Bellevuo house and moved his valise
thera. He left the room in oompany
with his friend J. F. McOabe. Mr.
MeCabe Bays he came back to the room
with Woodruff about two honrs later.
Woodruff said he was tired and intended to lie down and sleep. MoCabe
left him. So far as is known MoCabe
was ihe iast person to see Woodruff
alive.
"He had been diinkiug for several
days," said Mr. McOabe last evening.
"He was apparently in good humor
wnon I left him. I can nit understand
why he should have ended his life.
He had lost $80 during the day bnt he
lost more thau that many times without it bothering him. I can not account for it. I have not known him
intimately, but bave met bim several
times during the past three years. He
formerly worked for my brother in
Winnipeg."
The suicide was apparently a deliberate not. As in the case of the recent
suicide at a local hotel, tin victim had
carefully laid out a complete suit of
cleau linen nnd clothes , from socks to
necktie. He had then dressed iu a
newly lanndrieed night gown and
tied a white silk handkerchief neatly
aboot his, neck.
Woodruff probably J ended hii Ufa
Wednesday night. No nuusnal noise
was noticed hy those occupying the adjoining rooms. Yesterday tbe oham-
hermaid tried several times to enter
tho room but found the door looked.
Abont 7 o'clock, fearing something
was amiss, Miss Harper, one of those,
in charge of the bouse, unlocked the
door with a pass key. Entering she
was horrified to see tbe lifeless form
of Woodruff lying in the bod, his head
propped np by a pillow, bis bands lying folded across his breast. A white
silk handkerchief, ho had pressed to
his lips, had stuck there, cohering tbe
lower part of his face and neok. On
vho stand was the empty bottle whioh
bad contained 55 grains of morphine.
Reside it was a glass, with nartiolei
of the deadly white powder sticking
to the sides. In this glass was a set
of false teeth.
On another stand was a magazine
and on the top sheet this message was
written:
"Spokane, Aug. 17, '99.���Friend
McCabo: Well my troubles will bave
seced (sic) when yon read tbis. I
have nothing to Bay or ask but one favor. Do not let anyone know wbo I
am.    Your sincere friend,
"W. J. W."
Lo .ver down on tbe same page were
two words written in n more wavering baud. They were the last message :   "Good bye."
Search of the victim's papers by the
police disclosed receipts made ont in
the oame of Woodruff. Mr. MoCabe
said that he bad known tbe viotim
as William Woodruff nnd that he had
relatives living at Hamilton, Ont.
Among tho dead man's effects were
photographs of an elderly man snd
woman aud ot a yonng man and two
girls. These were taken at Hamilton
and aro presumed to be piotnres of* the
victim's parents, brother and sisters,
as tbey all bear a family resemblance
to him. Photographs of two yonng
women were also found among h.s
effects. One^ had the name "Etta"
written on| it. Otherwise thore was
no clue to the identity of thoso pictured. The police wero promptly notified
following the discovery of tho body.
Coroner Baker took oharge of tho remains and directed its removal to
the Smith undertaking parlors. He
has not deoided whether to hold an
inquest.

Act
With the full text of   the   judgment
in the Ooal Mines case came lhe report
of another, recently disposed of by tbe
Judicial Oommittee of the Privy Council and scarcely less interesting to British Colombia readers,   lt was that
the   Madden   brothers,     livery

grouud thai the Cattle Protection
of the Provincial Legislature  required
that the Hue should bo fenced, nnd   as
this had been negl icted   the  Company
was   responsible    for    the loss.    This
judgment was appealed to the Supreme
Court and   reversed.    It   appears  tbat

carried it on   to   the   Privy   Council.
There it was determined in accordance
with the   judgment   cf   the  Supremo
Court.
The Company maintained tbat the
Cattle Protection Act was ultra virts
of the Provincial Legislature. Bnt
on the part of the Province it was contended that as the Company was incor
poratod under a local charter it became
subject to the provisions of local legislation, notwithstanding that by Federal authority tho railway had been
declared to be for the general advantage of Canada. Theri was uo Federal
enactment requiring the Company to
fence its uroperty, and the Supreme
Oourt held that inasmuch as the Provincial legislation extended the liability of the Oompany beyond that impos
ed by the Dominion Railway Aot, it
exceeded its authority and the legislation was ultra vires. In aflirraiug this
judgment their Lordships of tbe Privy
Council Baid that it would be|impos8i-
bio to maintain the authority of tbe Dominion Parliament if a Proviucial Legislature conld presume to supplement
the provisions of a Federal Aot. In
the case iu question there was au act
ual provision that the Company should
be liable unless such aud such works
were coustructed in connection with
tho line. This was clearly beyond the
jurisdiction of the Provincial Legislature.
When the railway was declared to
be for the general advantage of Canada the superior Federal authority removed it wholly from withiu the jurisdiction of tho Province. The local
Legislature had uo power to regulate
its operation, to impose conditions or
restrictions, oi in any way to interfere
with its construction. If built under
a Provincial charter, aud if uot declared to be for the general advantage,
it would remain subject to Provincial laws; but by the simple process
of thiB declaration it was transferred
from the jurisdiction of the Province
to that of the Dominion. Such, we
take it, i" tho meaning aud effect of
this final judgment.
There are two classes of legislation
that are subject to disallowance���that
which is opposed to publio policy or
interest, and that which iB uucouBtil
tutioual. The former tho Federal authorities will disallow ; the latter tbey
decline to Interfere witb. for the reason that it will settle itself. If unconstitutional, the Courts will so declare when appealod to. That has been
the lino taken by a Minister of Justice
nt Ottawa, aud it seems to huve be
come the settled policy of the Federal
Government, lt is a policy that will
staud reviewing. Unconstitutional
or ultra vires legislation is nt the present moment playing the mischief with
the mining industry in the Atlin
country ; no private indivldunl iB called upon to stand tho enormous cost of
having it declared unconstitutional; n
word from the Dominion Government
would settle the matter, without cost
or trouble to anyone. The Madden
brothers went as far as the Supreme
Cnnrt, and doubtless it cost tliem
denrlyiifit had been necessary for
them to pursue the case to the end
they would probably have been ruinod
in having an unconstitutional Act declared unconstitutional. Neither expense nor trouble uood have been incurred if the Minister of Justice had
taken the simple pains to report
against the Act and recommend its dis-
allowance. Wheu tho power to disal-
Hw was reserved tn tho Federal authorities it was intendod that it should
be'exorcised when neoessaryjin tho pnblio interest; the public interest would
seem to demand that it should be exercised in the case of all ultra vires legislation, if private individuals are to bo
spared needless and often rainouB expense.

There nro doubtless numerous ways
of adjusting the troubles between the
mine manngers and the mine workers;
but it in becoming more and more
evident as time passes that the only
practical way is to readjust the Eight-
Hour law is such manner as to permit
the men to work any hours they please
and to secure them in tho uninterrupted right to do it on any terms they
please. That is the adjustment that
would appeal most strongly to manly
men, of whom there are many among
the niiueis of the Kootenays.

The Coast papers continue to spouk
verv favorably of the team, The Vio-
fnria Globe says of Tuesday's game:
The colors of the James Bay Athletic
Association; wero in the ascendent yesterday afternoon, for the home laorasse
team defeated the Nelson men with
the close se ire of 4 to 3. The Caledonian grounds were well tilled with spectators, attiacted, not only by the prospect of an exciting mateh, but also b\
a dosire to see the players who were so
enterprising as to come from Nelson to
play the Coast teams.
Tbe Nelson team is individually
composed of magnificent material and
had they had bettor opportunities for
combination play they would have a
splendid chance of capturing: the championship of the Province. They lack,
however, that dominant factor to suo-
oesB���combination���something which
can he overcome by diligent practice.
The stick work of each player was all
that could be desired, in Home oases
very brilliant, tint good stick wjrk
avails nothing when not backed up
with steady and accurate combination.
Tho Nelsons got a rattling recontiou
from thn spectators though naturally
the iiunilu r of people present was not
nearly as lnrge as it would have been
on a Satnrday afternoon.
To say that this match was remark
able for expert team work would be
wrong, Inn in many c:\sos the individual play, particularly on Iho part of
the visitors was of the highest ord(>r.
Th��ro was not. the slightost hitch or
break il) the maloh, and good temper
was the order of tho occasion. It is
to be hoped lhat this is not the last
time in which tbe Kootenay champions
will cross sicks with the Victoria team
an 1 the hoys iu green aud white will
always receive a hearty welcome from
Victorians, especially for Ike sake of
the true ^sportsmanship thoy uphold
and advance
Of the same gune rho Victoria Times

First Minister then gracefully retired
to a posiition of safety, aud the game
began, from tho first it was evident
that in speed some of the Nelson men
have phenomenal advantages, and
this was not the least characteristic of

The Tribune harps on tht point that

bargain sale,wh;re something is offered for nothing, are the kind of people that arc never satis-
led; and no wonder, fjr they nevet get 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.
What we have done for others we
Can do for you.

Sir���Some daya ago, tbere appeared

a dispatoh from that organ's sporting
respresentative, who is now at the
Oaost, stating that the eight hour law
wus to he made the main issue in the
forthcoming New Westminster election. This was followed by an editorial suggesting a oourse for the opposition to adopt. While no doubt all opponents of the presont Government are
Rind of any pointers, they are abont as
likely to aooept the ntteranoes of The
Tribune in this regard as the opponents of the eight-hour law are to aot
on suggestions from the editor of a pa-
vxtrwho has championed the union
dictators over sinoe the present trouble

Mosrss. T. Q, Procter and John Me
Kane (of Rosaland) have just letnrncd
from a tiip to Hooker Creek. The
route there is hy steamer to Pilot Bav.
From thence a small steamer runs three
days a week to Crawford Bay. At the
Litter place pack horses can be obtained
from tii.- Mandealey brotheis. Mr.
Procter is one of the owners of the Republic group, situated nt thn head of
Hooker Creek. This group consists of
of four full claims and tlm<fractions.
Over $71100 tins been expended by the
owners iu development work on this
property. The claims have been surveyed and Crown (Irants are now bo-
ing applied for.
The principal lead on the Republic
Kroup is from eitjht to 11! feet wide
with a pay streak of rich concentrating
ore of a uniform width of fonr feet.
The lead is strongly denned through
three of tbe claims.
The work done consists of tunneling
and open cnts. One tunnel is 220 feet
long and 'another over 100 feet with
cross cuts. The lead hns been stripped
with open cutB for a distance ot about
1500 feet which show continuous crop-
pings of ore for tbat distance.
Mr. McKane is a director of the London Consolidated Gold Mining Company, the owners] of tha Silver Hill
group at the h<?ad of Hooker Creek
nnd about three milesJJ from the Republic group.
There nre about 80 men now working
ou the Silver Hill and Indicator, 'an
adjoining property, and it may interest labor agitators to know that the
men work eight honrs below ground
and two hours above ground���ten hours
in all���for (8.50 a day, the surface men
receiving $3 a day for 10 hours shifts.
The work done on the Silver Hill
group consists oi'J a series of tunnel
the longest being 70 feet. Seven carloads of high grade ore are uow iu
the bins and on the dump andjthls when
shipped will more than pay tho cost of
development. A quantity of ground
is nlso ready for stoping.
The great trouble in that district is
tho need of a proper trail. The number and value of the properties thero
call for proper menus of transporting
ore and provisions.
The London Consolidated Co.,   bave
petitioned   the   Government over  nud
over again for   assistance   in   mnking
the   trai I .    They  have   offered   to do
all the work provided the Government
Will pay half t.lio  cost next   yonr   but
the Solons at Victoria turn a   deaf ear
to thoir   entreaties     It is   the general
opinion of mining men who know   the
district that tho output of a   considerable amount ot   valuable ore is  being
delayed owing to tho  crass   ignorance
and     stupidity   of tho  Jaoks-iu-oftioe
who have the power to construct or ns
Hist  in   constructing! a   propir   trail.
Mr. Jerry Kobillinrd, a   well known
character in Nelson,also returned with
Air. Procter.    Mr   Robilliard owns an
interest  in   tho   Humboldt   group   on
Crawford Creek, twelve miles from the
Bay.  the principal owner being Mr. J.
B.   McLaren.       Thore   are 10   claims
in this group, . Crown   Grants  having
been applied for for five o' them.    The
principal edge consists  of high   grade
galena averaging 70  onnces in   silver'
the  nverago   width   of the   ledge   bo-
ing aeven feet.    Thero aro two turnels
driven,   one,   120   feet long   with  an
inclined sraft of   do feel, tho other bo-
iug 114 feet   long.    Mr.   Robilliard  is
now   doinf   assessment  work  on  the
property  under the   direction; of  Mr.
Fit/. Cirkel.   Mr.   McLaren's   mining
engineer.

worth. Ho effected an entrance into
tho house of John Lemon through a
back window, Mrs. liner, of Philadelphia, \mis visiting lhe house aud

ed it being opened Theu after a while
he suddenly burst it nyen, threw himself ou members of the family outside,
fighting desperately, but was finally
beaten down nn1 captured. On him
were found Lemon's gold watch and
pocket book, containing JI07. Scott
is a member of a very respectable
family.
Those small boys who make u practice of riding bicycles on the sidewalks had better watch out. Chief of
Police Jarvis usks The Miner to give
uotice that the next one caught riding
ou any oity sidewalk will be summoned   to appear beforo Magistrate Crease.
