Mr. Joseph Chamberlain,Seotretary of
State for the Colonies, and member of
Parliament for West Birmingham,
was issued to his constituency. He
said: "Our opponents assert that we
deliberately provoked a war for which
we had made no preparation. The
first statement is untrue and the second greatly exaggerated. The war was
forced on us by a sudden invasion
while the negotiations conducted with
the greatest meditation on  our part
was proceeding."
Mr. Chamberlain  then  reviews the
causes of the war briefly and the "immense and successful exertions of the
War Office" at considerable length. In

mean to conserve the fruits of victory
which otherwise would be thrown
away. Mr. Arthur .1. Ilalfour. Brst

Second Attempt at Murder by
the Anthracite Coal
Strikers and Operators Both
claim Slightly Improved
Shamokin, Pa., Kept. 21. -Evan Davis, watchman at Hickory Ridge colliery, was shot early this morning by
an unknown person as he was patrolling through the collieries. The bullet entered bis left side inflicting a
serious if not fatal wound. Davis saw
a man running toward the engine
house and before be fell to the ground
from exhaustion be fired six shots at
tlie fleeing assassin, but none of the
bullets apparently took etl'eet. The
colliery is in an isolated place and
Davis was compelled to crawl a mile
on his hands and knees for aid. The
strike situation is unchanged here.
Everything is quiet and the collieries
still remain closed down. The men
are encouraged by the large number
of Schuylkill County miners going on
strike t his morning.
Hazelton, Pa. Kept. 21.���There were
no developments in the strike situation hereabouts this morning. The
whole Hazelton district was reported
quiet. The strikers reported at headquarters success iu persuading a considerable number of workmen from
going into the mines. Several mine
superintendents reported an increasing number of men at work. Probably the greatest gain made by any
concern was at the O. B. Markle &
Co. mines. They reported many additional men working in their collieries but would not give figures. John
Markle. managing partner of G. 11.
Marlke & Co., said today that his employees were beginning to realize
that they were being hoodwinked and
made tools of by the labor leaders
now here. He added that it was safe
to say that nearly all his men would
return to the mines during the next
few days. As a result of the strike a
large number of people continue to
leave these reigons each day. This is
especially true of the foreign element.
Every day a batch of these people
loaded with baggage leave for their
unlive land or the soft coal regions.
President Mitchell, of the United
Mine Workers,is still among the missing. If he has gone to New York to
confer with the large operators on the
question of a settlement of tho strike
it is not possible to learn here that
such is the ease. All bis lieutenants
deny knowledge of bis whereabouts.
Hritish Columbia Man Will Be Honored the Second Time.
Ottawa, Kept. 21.- There is no opposition to Ralph Smith as president
of the Trades and Labor Congress and
be will likely be re-elected this afternoon. Mr. Mulock will speak at the
banquet tonight.
Rossland, B, C. Kept. 21.���Albert
Westfall, a diamond drill operator
employed ill the War Eagle mine, was
instantly killed at two o'clock yesterday afternoon by being struck by
the skip.
lie was standing on a platform
neat the 860-foot level when the skip
was coining down the shaft. Apparently not noticing its approach he
carelessly stuck his head out to look
down where Foreman Warden was a
few feel below him nnd was hit by the
full force of the skip. His neck was
fractured. Mr. Westfall was a native
or Oregon nnd was about 83 or 33
vcurs of age.    He leaves no family.
Dynamite Used on the Lake
Street House of Evon
Police are Unable to Locate
the Perpetrators of the
An attempt was made at 13:30 last
night to destroy with dynamite the
house of Evon Delour situated on
Lake .Street.
At the time the explosion took
place two persons, Kvou Delour and
Napoletin Delour. were in the bouse.
The explosion lifted the enthe
house in the air, and threw the inmates to the Moor. Mrs. Delour was
stunned and it was several minutes
before she could realize what bad happened. Delour tried to escape from
the bouse with the woman, hut before
reaching an exit she fell to the floor
again, and remained unconscious for
an hour or more.
From the manner in which the front
of the house was torn it appears that
a heavy charge of dynamite was placed under the northeast corner, >vbich
in places was blown to slivers. The
platform in front of the building was
completely blown away, and some
pieces were found 25 or 110 feet from
the building. Not a bit of glass was
left in the front windows. The hifck
windows were also shattered. The
furniture of the house was not damaged in tho least, but tho plustor in
many places was jarred from the
walls. The fixtures about the walls
were also torn loose. The roof above
the corner where the dynamite was
placed was torn away and the house
was slightly moved from its foundation. Three windows of May Milton's
house which stands nearly 1(1 feet to
the east, were completely shattered
and the house immediately to tin-Vest
occupied by Agnes West, had two
windows destroyed.
As soon as the inmates realized what
had happened after the explosion
look place, Chief of Police Jarvts was
telephoned for, and when hi- arrived
nothing but a crowd of Chinamen and
the ruins were to be seen. Ollicer
Kerr was the first on the scene but
was too late discover the perpetrators
of the outrage.
Evon Delour said this morning that
she had no idea who could have done
it, but it was evidently done by some
one who intended to kill her. She
stated that no one had threatened her,
but that several years ago, while she
was residing in Montana an attempt
was made to blow up her house. Judging from the position of the dynamite
the deed was attempted by some one
who was not used to blasting. Had it
been placed further under the house,
the building would undoubtedly have
been blown to atoms. It iH thought
that from six to seven full sticks of
dynamite were used.
The damage will amount to over
S100, The police worked on the matter, all last night, and are at work
today, but no clue   bus been obtained.
Spaniards Kank Their   Own   Ships at
Vancouver. II. C. Kept. 31.��� In an
interview with I.eiitenant It. P. Hob-
son published in a local paper Ilobson
Is quoted as saying that Admiral
Dewey did not sink the Spanish ships
at Manila, but that the Spaniards
opened the valves and scuttled the
ships themselves, lie bases his conclusions upon the fact that he saw the
hulls of the Spanish fleet when the
ships had been taken to Hong Kong
for repairs, und be says those bulls
were uninjured below the water lino.
The pertinent part of the interview
Asked in what condition ho bad
found the hulls of the   Islu   de   Cuba,
tlie tela de Luzon and the rest of the
licet when ho arrived at Hong Kong
lo superintend repairing operations,
the lieutenant said:
'The damage to the hulls was mainly due to the six months' submersion,
The upper works had been badly damaged by^ lire, the woodwork having
been destroyed and the iron plates being badly twisted by the beat."
"What, in your opinion,was the direct cause of the foundering id the
vessels'.'"    be was asked.
"Oh, the Spaniards pulled out the
plugs and opened the valves. They
sank the ships themselves. Our shell
lire did very little damage."
"Then they were not injured below
the water line'.'"
���Very little," replied Ilobson; "we
had practically done them no damage
it all."
Mr. Robert Strang   Fixes  Wages For

Galveston Rapidly netting Into Better
Galveston, Texas, Sept. 31.���The
conditions at Galveston continue to
rapidly improve. Lveryollc is so busy
that there is little time to mourn over
losses. The number of patients in
the various hospitals is much smaller
I than would have been expected considering the number of dead, This is
due to the fact that few who were entirely helpless succeeded in escaping
alive. The number of people leaving

and injured to go elsewhere for medical treatment,   Commander Selfrldge,

Train and Yard Men of C. P. R. Western Division.
The train and yard men of the I'aeilie division of the Canadian Pacific
have bad their wages advanced considerably. The men have la-en asking for an advance for a considerable time past, hut not until a few
days ago was the agreement for tlio
new scale of wages signed by the superintendent of the lines west of Winnipeg. Messrs. Lemon and Irving, of
Nelson,members of the general grievance committee of the Brotherhood of
Trainmen, have just rihurned from

We have pleasure in noting that The
News-Advertiser.of Vancouver, thinks
highly of the nomination of Mr. MaeNeill as the Conservative candidate
for Yale-Cariboo. A Government
print in Vancouver said the other day
that Mr. MaeNeill was still a resident
of that city. Circulation was given
to this story in the hope, no doubt,
of exciting dissatisfaction because of
his being a non-resident, lie did reside in that city for a few years, but
in 1898 he removed to Rossland and
has ever since been a resident of that
place, And, as remarked by The
News-Advertiser, he has employed the
years there to such advantage that
be has not only built up one of the
largest practices in Kootenay, but
has established a reputation that has
earned for him the respect and esteem
of all classes of the people.
We cannot do belter than quote
from The News-Advertiser: "While
Mr. MaeNeill has never sought ollice,
he has taken an active interest in both
Federal and Provincial politics. We
do not think that it would be possible
for the Conservatives to select a better
candidate than Mr. MaeNeill, or one
as likely to he successful, lie enjoys
the confidence of all classes in the
community, and it is acknowledged
even by his Liberal opponents that he
will be a very strong candidate. In
accepting the nomination tendered to
him. Mr. MaeNeill .subordinates bis
personal and professional Interests to
those of the public, and in the event
of bis election -of which there is little doubt���will worthily represent the
most Important constituency in Hritish   Columbia   and   a  district on   the
development of which the future progress of the Province greatly depends,
There is scarcely a single point in
the relations between the Province
and the Dominion which does not
particularly touch one or more interests in the yale-Carlboo-Kooteaaydistrict, Questions of transporattlon in
and with thai section ; railways and
navigable rivers; duties on lead ores
and the establishment of a mint, all
have a special local interest for that
vast constituency, In it are found
alike the greatest quartz mines and
the largest hydraulic enterprises; Immense 0O��l fields and vast forest areas,
while its boundaries include the great
cattle ranges of the Province and
some of the choicest of our agricultural areas. To do justice to all these interests, to compel attention to their
reasonable demands at the bands of
the distant Federal authorities, requires that the member for Yale-Cariboo should be a man who is able to
make himself beard and listened to on
the floor of the House, and in Mr.
MaeNeill these qualifications are
found. "
Our contemporary   goes   on   to   say
that the canvass of such an  Immense
constituency is a formidable undertaking, and that his political friends
In every district of it should make his
labor as light as possible by devoting
themselves to his interests. However
satisfactory the personal character
ami however great the abilities of the
candidate, and however sound Unpolitical cause of which he has been
made the special champion, it is
unreasonable to look for success without united and energetic work on the
part of his supporters, We arc glad
to print anything that will make Mr.
MacNcill better known throughout
the Nelson district ami wherever The
Miller circulates, for wc are persuaded be will make a valuable represent
ntive and it is desirable thai liis popularity should he spread abroad as
much as possible.
overlook It, but speaking in a foreign country, in France, and telling
them he is year by year getting more
I'rench than ever and that, if In order
to be a Minister of the Crown he must
cease to be l-'reneh, he would resign
ofice at.once?  What do you think of
a Minister going to Paris and telling
Ihe people that although they live under the Hritish Mag, the Hag they revere is the tri-color���not the t'uion
Jack. Do you think that is a position
that ought to be taken by any loyal
Canadian'.1 and I appeal' to loyal Reformers as I do to loyal Conservatives,
because 1 am well aware of this fact
that Reformers are just as loyal as we
are. I believe the stand taken by-
Mr. Xarte when our contingent was
going to light for the (lug in South
Africa, and the speeches he made during bis recent visit to Paris,have done
more lo make good Conservatives of
good loyal Reformers than anything
else. We only have to let him go on
in the way he is going to prevent one
single Keform member from being
elected in Ontario."���Hugh John Macdonahl at Napanec.
Mr. Tarte says the Government will
carry 59 of tho OS seats in Quebec.
They carried nearly as many in 1800.
How'.1 The Toronto (llobe keeps on
repeating that the Conservatives arc
endeavoring to stir up racial prejudices, and the lesser organs of course
follow suit. There is no truth in the
statement as far as we have been able
to observe, for It is not exciting racial prejudices to remark on the conduct of Mr. Tarte and Sir Wilfrid
Laurier in connection with the South
African contingent. But it is by and
through racial prejudices it is hoped
to carry SS out of OS Quebec seats,
and it was by and through SUoh prejudices so large a proportion of these
were carried in the last election. Mr.
Tarte's strength iu that Province is
owing entirely to his suecoss in fomenting race prejudices among his
people. If it were not for race prejudices the majority would be on the
other side, for Quebec is naturally
Conservative. In 18110 Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and Mr. Tarte used the Manitoba school question to stir up racial
and religious prejudices among the
French-Canadians, and today they are
making adroit use of the strong Imperial feeling that prevndes the English-speaking Provinces. How else
Ihan through these prejudices can
Mr. Tarte hope to carry nearly all
the   French-Canadian   constituencies?
The Canadian-born citizens of Nelson who attended the charming vocal
concert in Fraternity Hall last night
will be excused if tlivy feci pride in
the performers, who are not only all
Canadians but all residents of what,
even in tills country of magnificent
distances, may be called our neighboring city of Winnipeg. Pride that
they are Canadians is the lirst and
dominating sentiment, but in estimating the character of the concert as a
whole we are moved to doubl whether
any other city in the Dominion, large
or small, could send out as admirable a quartette. We say quartette,
for pleasing as the singers were they
were not more so than the acconipan-
iste. Por the delightful entertainment
of grand concert we have taught ourselves to depend on foreigners; on importations from European countries,
from Ureal Britain, or from the United Stutes. We experienced last night
the very great pleasure of discovering
that Canadian artists can give us
equal enjoyment,

\V A Coplen, who bus just, returned from tho Hlocan, having made a trip
Hiiuiiii-li tho district In the interests of
ti���. Spokane exposition to secure n
mineral exhibit, is well pleased with
[he result of bis trip and witli conditions in the bi�� silver-leiiil sect inn of
llrilisb Columbia,says the Spokesman-
Kcvlew. Speaking of the results of
110 trip and what he saw, Mr. Cop-
���len yesterday Bald:
..jlv Held of operation was readied
when 1 arrived at Kaslo, and it Included tho camps around Sandon,
New Denvor, Sllverton, Slocan City
and other Intermediate points. I thus
oovored over B(i miles by rail anil
more tbiin 30 us the erow Hies. This
is ono continuous silver-lead belt, with
Its many mountains and ledges of
high grado ore,
��� I mot with hearty co operation in
the matter of an exhibit wherever I
went. There is plenty of ore all
through tho district, and I am confident that the exhibit "ill be an excellent one, , .     ��� ,   ,.   .
������The area of tins Mucan belt is
wonderful. There are ninny Indications of prosperity all through the
camps and Improvements of an im-
liiii'tnnt character are under way that
iflvo additional proof of the oonndence
of operators.
"A number of properties are being
developed in the country around Kas-
lii,especially on the south fork of Kaslo'River, but it Is quite noticeable
that there are still many promising
,,,,,s| is thai deserve further exploitation and which capital has not yet
been plentiful enough to reach.
���At Sandon only the last traces of
the recent fire arc to be seen. Old
BtoVOS, safes, furnaces, boilers and
kitchen utensils arc scattered everywhere, showing the completeness of
tho destruction. Yet Sancton Is there,
new fresh and as cheerful as if nothing had happened, Mr. Harris, one
of the principal townsite owners,with
the co-operation of several others has
re-arranged the streets making a main
thoroughfare HO feel wide down the
centre of the town. All the new
buildings and those under construction are of the best and everyone is
doing bis best to make it a model
mining town.
"There are a number of the mines
around Sandon that prove beyond a
doubt that the ore bodies of the district {.'ii 10 cn.it deptl, and In some
cases thai value- Increase with depth.
Much activin is noticeable, both in
building ami In the development of
tlie mines, New strikes are being reported constantly and there are numbers of excellent prospects In many
parts nf tho district, giving an un-
doubted Held of promise for investors.
"Al New Denver and Sllverton conditions are much the same as at Kaslo
and Sandon. Mining is active and
the same confidence   in a bright   fu-
��� 111- it far awav   csists,    At   Slocan
City there has been a considerable
stir, amounting almost to boom.
Large improvements have been under
way all summer anil a number of
mines are being added to the shipping
"The Two Friends lias a force al
wirk taking out ore and there is 80
tmis at tho wharf and 1(1 tons more on
the dump ready for shipment. The
property, which is under bond to
Thomas Lake of Slocan City, Is look
Ing remarkably well. The Bondholder is being worked by Al Teeter
and others under lease. There is a
large body of high-grade ore In sight
and it is expected that shipments will
be continued during the winter.
"The Arlington and Cbapleau are
each working large forces of men in
the inii.o. ami abo e ground. The Arlington company has boiidel Bevereal
adjoining claims In the direction of
the Enterprise, This maks it a large
group of good properties and gives it
much good prospected ground. The
work in this section is very considerable and it is a busy camp' this fall.
"All these camps are to be repre-
���entcd In the Slooan exhibit at the
exposition this season. The mine
owners of the entire district have
entered into the idea with enthusiasm
'Hid I think we can show some ore
thai will attract no little attention.
There Is some magnificent silver-lead
ere being prepared fin shipment and
it must serve to emphasize the fact
that there in to the north  a  remark-

at the Same Place.
'I'lio three young Canadian vocalists
who appeared In Fraternity Hall last
evening more than delighted their
audience. Never was there a better
vocal entertainment given In the olty
and it is a matter for congratulation
that their presence    In   the   city   this
evening enables them to give another
concert. It was a Surprise to many
that the west,for the Blngers and their
talented accoinpanlstc, are Winnlpeg-
gers, could turn   out   such  delightful
entertainers as .Miss 13d 1th J. Miller,
Mr. Stanley Adams, Mr, Robert C.
Campbell, vocalists ami Miss .lean
Forsyth, pianist. Of .Miss Miller
much was expected and more than
that was realized, But Mr. Adams
and -Mr. Campbell were genuine surprises and it is hard to chose the one
of the  three  who gave   the  greatest
pleasure.   Tonight's  icerl should he
largely att leil and will   he if those
who are fond of accomplished singing and are looking fur a   rare   treat,
Miss Miller has a contralto voice of
surprising power and beauty of tone.
She is withal a fine artiste and il is
a delight to Listen to her. Her number, the "Brindlsi" from "Luoretta
Borgia" was a revlation and that
beautiful poem of Tennyson's ".Break,
Break, Break" brought out that sympathetic quality of tone which is so
sought after by vocalists. Miss Mil
ler has scored a pronounced hit in
Nelson and doubtless there will be
many more people to hear her tonight
than assembled in the Fraternity
Hall last evening. Too much cannot
be said in praise of .Mr. Campbell, tho
tenor. His singing was a great surprise to all and to think thnt so young
a man should possess a voice of such
power and sing with such refined
taste is truly It marvel. .Mr. Campbell, to use a slang phrase, had the
people where he wanted thein and
there was not one person in the. Large
audience present who was nut more
than satisfied with his splendid work-.
His first number "My Queen" awakened interest at once and his encore
"Her Majesty." was equally well rendered. The "Persian Garden" selection "Ah! Pill the Cup," showed
more than ever the artist and in the
concerted music his voice showed to
great advantage. Mr. Campbell has
a great future before him and should
yet be at the top of the ladder of vocal fame. It might he interesting to
note that Mr. Campbell's talents do
not lie wholly in his singing, he is a
very clever comedian, having played
in opera for the past three or four
Mr. Adams has a deep, full and rich
baritone voice and his numbers showed the result of capable tuition and
faithful study. He sings with an ease
that adds greatly to the effect. His
first Dumber, Marks' "The Arab's
Bride." a spirited song of a martial
type, brought out the broad quality of
his voice, and this combined with an
artistic style and the thorough appreciation of the ideas of the composer.
earned for him a well deserved and
enthuisastie encore. Hut encores were
common.for every number on the programme so pleased the audience that
an enoore was demanded, and in every
instance gracefully given. In the concerted numbers Mr. Adams voice showed up with telling effect.
Two ducts and a trio wore on the
programme and were delightful numbers. The trio '"Queen of the
Night." by Smart, was a lilting close
to a most enjoyable programme. The
three voices blended as one and had it
not been for consideration for the
singers they would have been forced
to repi .t it.
And now fur Ihe a inpanistc, Miss
Forsyth, Her work throughout was
by no means the least pleasing pari of
the progro     she is an artiste of
great ability and Miss Miller was
fortunate in securing her fur the

the evening was made by Mis. Eva

washerwoman. Mrs. French's character work is at all times excellent
and last night was no excepion for
the touch of Celtic humor and wit
given the impersonation was irresisti-

a hearty laugh. It would be difficult
lo imagine a more thorough Impersonation of the warm-hearted, motherly
Irish woman of that class. Miss Mamie lloldcn as Helen Standish bandied the part artistically and showed
a capability of going beyond ingenue

from the Northwest Territories. Last
year there were three pupils from

while at the Pacific Coast,interviewed
members of the Hritish Columbia Government with a view of coming to an
arrangement on the matter of educating pupils from their Province. The
Manitoba Government maintain the
institution and the Territorial Government support the children from there.
The British Columbia Government

Wednesday says: One week from tomorrow the doughty Winnipegs will
proceed on their journey to New Westminster, there to do battle for tilt'
world's lacrosse championship. Previous to a month or so ago, the Royal
City, as the citizens are pleased to
term their burg, was principally
known for the salmon industry. They
have a rhyme which runs something
like this:
Been bred in old Westminster,
Where the salmon bellies grow.
Now, the unfortunate salmon is allowed to quietly proceed about his
business, and New Westminster has
sprung into fame, as the name of the
world's lacrosse champions. They hold
that proud title now, but it may be
wrested away from them by the Winnipeg braves, who are leaving their
happy wigwams in search of fresh
laurels, lt'8 to be hoped our boys will
go out and win. as Winnipeg being a
oentral point, it would be very convenient to have the championship rest
Editor Miner:
Sir,���Allow me space to reply to a
statement made by Stanley Adams,
manager of the Edith Miller Concert
Co., in Fraternity Hall last night.
Mr. Adams stated that the manager of
the Nelson Opera House had lied to
them and had given the Opera House
to another company as he supposed
that the Edith Miller Company was
not a paying concern. The facts arc
as follows: The R. E. French Co.,
who are filling a weeks engagements
in the Opera House at present, had
contract signed for that week two
months before the agent of the Edith
Miller Co.came to Nelson and by making false statements, which I can and
will prove,secured a contract from me.
As soon as I learned that the agent of
the Miller Concert Co., bad obtained
his booking by making false statements, I informed Mr. Adams that 1
did not consider myself bound by the
contract, but that I had engaged
Fraternity Hall for him and arranged
with Mr. K. C. Beaton to advertise
and manage the entertainment. 1
also loaned them chairs from the
Opera House and put up their litho-
grnhps and gave them a square deal
and Mr. Adams does not appear to appreciate what I did for him and his
company but in order to get sympathy
from his audience tries to show that
be has been very ill treated by the
manager of the Nelson Opera House.
