G.P.R.  Secret  Service  Unearths a Big Stealing
Conspiracy.
Investigation in Nelson Last
Week Shows Up the
Game.
It lias jnut been learned thnt the occasion of the presoi.ee of so many officials of the C 1\ R, in Nelson last
week wus to attend a eonferenee
whieh it was hoped would result in
throwing1 light upon what the C. P,
R, otlieials believed to be an organized
plan to rob the company.
The result of tlie investigation Confirmed the suspicious of the oliieiais,
who now claim they have unearthed
one of the best organized conspiracies
ever brought to light as existing on a
railway system on this continent.
They have no moral doubt that it is a
conspiracy. To ascertain whether it
can be proved that the men who are
accused are conspirators in tho eyes of
the law, is why tho investigation was
held.
That the officials are not satisfied
at least with the conduct of those implicated, and that those who are implicated know th.it there are certain
tacts against them, is shown by the
dismissal of one of the accused during
the week just passed. This man
threateued, it is said, to shoot one of
the seeret service agents commonly
known as '"'spotters'' who has been
Instrumental in the uncovering of tho
railroaders1 scheme, which is thus
explained by one of tho chiefs of the
secret service department: Kverybody
knows how tbe Kootenay and Boundary ('reek mining country has been
building up during tho past few years.
So fast have new mines beeu discovered, such has boon the rush of prospectors, mining men aud merchants
into that Country that cities have
boon springing up everywhere. The
railroad development could not keop
apace with the growth of tho country.
Roads were finished and almost before the rails had been properly ballasted passengers were almost fighting for seats in railway ears to get
from one mining discovery to another
The passenger traffic between Rossland and (ireenwood has been antl is
something enormous. Even now seats
are hard to obtain in any of the
trains, and it Is consequently a rush
daily ��t the stations to got tickets bo-
fore the train leaves. The distance
between Kossland anil (Ireenwood is
one hundred and twenty miles, and
the busines-s is naturally carried in
day coaches only. The way stations
furnish comparatively little traffic.
There may bo here and there a prospector or'a miner who may get on or
off, but as the Boundary country is
all tributary to (Ireenwood and every
miner, every prospector and overy
fanner comes there before going to
Kossland or coming to tho coast, the
great sale of railway tickets is naturally done   in that city.
It is the same way with Kossland
and the Kootenay camps,and hence tho
great chance, according to secret service reports, for the men to carry on
the profitable business whieh they
are said to have transacted. The actions of four railway men are the immediate subjects ot the inquiry. Two
arc conductors and two aro ticket
agents of tho company.
Tho trains running between Rossland and (ireenwood are only two, one
going each way ovory day but Sunday,
and the conductors of those are the
ones selected as the defendants in the
investigation.
It is claimed by the detectives of
the road that a large number of tlok-
etH had been originally purchased
from the company and money paid
therefor or tho scheme could never
ha.*c been worked. These tickets were
resold, tbe conductor going each way
(so the reports state) taking up tho
tickets and handing hat checks, with
which all travelers are familiar, to
passengers. The tickets on being taken np by the Conductor going either
way, were returned to Confidential
agents in the centies of population to
he resold again and again. Tlie selling agonts referred to,   it,  is claimed
by the detective branch, were chiefly
hotel runners in such places as (ireon-
wcod   and   Rossland,   who   becoming
well acquainted with ordinary railway travel, would bo approached by
tho runners with tho suggestion that
tickets could bo purchased at much
loss through them than at the ordinary tariff.
Most of tho profitable business was
transacted in barrooms and even in
worse places, and through this came
the undoing of the authors and principals   of the scheme.
A STRING ON  THE COUNT.
Anna Gould's Fortune Will Not Dwindle So Quickly.
New York, Nov. 1,���The Countess
do Castellane, whose property has just
been placed under tho direction of her
brother, Qeorge Gould, by a French
court, was questioned relative to the
matter, says a I'aris report to The
World. She said: '' 1'lease make
light of the matter. It will only revive stories which will hurt my dear
husband's feelings, lie already Buffers
keenly tho exposure of his present
situation.''
..Count Boni has heen away from
I'aris for tlie last three days, but will
return today, (Thursday). I.aut
night he was conversing for an hour
with his father over the long distance
telephone and heard the news. He is
indignant that tho court should have
appointed a foreigner  to  watch  over
the countess' fortune, lle wanted his
father appointed if a trustee was
needed. "My son," said the Marquis
Ue Castellane, last night, ������thought I
eould serve him equally well. Bon.
and the Could brothers won't agree.
We both feel that George Gould will
administer the trust with harsh parsimony. Boni with difficulty will bear
this bondage."
GENERAL BOOTH TO ASSIST.
New York,   Nov.   1.���General   William   Booth,    commander-in-chief of
the Salvation Army, is coming here
next September to take the control of
the Salvation Army in the l'nited
States for at least six months. This
announcement was made last night
by Commander Booth -Tucker, who
said he had invited the general to assist, iii 'the solution of several prob
lotus, ouo of whieh was that of organizing.
DOINGS IN COURT.
Dispute Over   Location of a   Claim in
the Slocan.
The case of Mauley vs. Collom lu
whieh there is a dispute over a claim.
which was located and relocated, was
opened before the Supremo Court yesterday immediately after the closing
of the case of Henley vs. Reco Mining
Cmpany. The claim is situated between the Arlington property and the
Burlington claim near Slocan City.
It was at first staked as the Arlington Fractional by Charles  A.   Bailer,
in November, ls'JT, when he was engaged as foreman of tho Arlington
property. Throe months later he
abandoned the property and it waa
again staked by Jack Hatpin as tho
Native Silver. It is asserted that the
Native silver was   then purchased   by
the plaintiff Air. Mark Man ley and the
defendant .1. Frank Collom. Again
this yoar the claim was staked by Mr.
Collom, who is now applying for a
Crown grant. The defendant asserts
that the lirst two locations were
fraudulent according to Section It,' of
the mineral act, and now believes
that he is sole owner of the property.
Tho plaintiff wishes to stop the Crown
Grant so that ho may still own a half
interest in the claim. Mr. Hubert
Twigg, of New Denver,a ininingongi-
neer.was the first witness and his evidence produced the facts in connection
with the surveying of the claim when
it was located as the Native Silver.
Charles llaller was the next witness
and ho was on the stand all the morning session and a greater portion of
this afternoon. The judge in discussing various points of the ease said
that there was too much earelessness
on the part of the Government and
their mining recorders in granting
certificates.
It is probable that the ease will he
completed tonight. There is yet one
case to collie before the OOUli that he-
Ing l.awr Tl.Parker, and it is thought
that the session will end   tomorrow.

JUST TEN YEARS AGO
Clippings From The Miner Published Ten
Years Ago Today, November
1, 1890.
Ten years ago today Nelsnn wus
striving to take her place in the lead
of Ainsworth and Ilalfour. Everybody agreed that there were to he two
big towns in what was then called
the "Lake District." Nelson was to
be one of these and Ainswurtli the
other. Ilalfour had hupes hut wasn't
as contldont as her sister mining
camps. Nelson was the metropolis of
the "Toad Mountain District" and
Qeorge C.Tunatall, ar., was Hold Commissioner. The Nelson Hotel advertised "a splendid view of Toad Mountain" from its balcony. Ililker and
Wells were doing a flourishing business In the clothing line, Harold
Melons was a Justice of the Peace, u
uotary public and did some real estate
and mining business. Houston, Ink
and Allan were dealing in Ainsworth
ami Nelson tuwn lots and were booming them in the columns of The Miner. .1. Fred Hume A Co., aud H. K.
Lemon, each had a quarter page nd.
iu The Miner ten years ago today.
The Madden House advertised its
kitchen as being under the "immediate supervision of Hugh Madden, u
caterer uf large experience." Speaking of the mining situation The Miner
of ten yeuis ago today said:
"In Toad Mountain district, everything, iu a measure, depended on thu
Hall Mines. It was hoped that they
would give employment to at least a
hundred miners during the winter,
lint these hopes were nut to be realized. This setback is duo entirely to a
gaug of ringsters at Victoria jumping
the property���u gang who do all their
prospecting for mineral in the olllces
uf mining recorders. While their
chances are slim for obtaining possession of the .Silver King nnd Kootenay
I'.onan.a, their dirty work has prevented the original locators and owners of the in I ne from taking any progressive steps toward the development of the property. At present
three shifts are at work ull the Silver
King tunnel, which is in nearly 300
feet about 150 feet Is still tu lie inn,
and the work is progressing at the
rat   of 13 to I.*, feet a week."
Ilther itemH from The Miner of Nov.
I,  lino, are   as follows:
"While the country   along the Canadian I'aeilie   from Kamloops to Winnipeg   is   said   to   have   already   had !
snow storms this fall, not   a Hake has j
fallen  in Nelson or   Ainsworth.    The
Miner does not claim   that the Kootenay Lake country Is a land   of pel pel
ual summer aud   sunshine,   for   it   is
not; yet but little snow   fulls   c,u   tlio ,
low   lying   benches,   along   the   river,
and lake, before New Year's Day. and
none after the middle nf March.    But
up in the mountains-Ye Gods!
'The trail between Ilalfour and
Ainsworth has been completed, aud is
s', miles in length. "
"Tenders will be received at The
Miner otliee for the construction of a
ill..]-J crib, HI feet In height, to be
sunk in the river at or near the llout I
ulso for extending the landing to a
eonneetion with the float. All logs
used in crib or landing to bo cedar."
"Nelson has a hotel, the proprietors of which say they Uo not know
whether they havo six or sixty six
boarders. When a boarder steps up
to the bin to settle he is sized up,
and if he looks as if able to pay 920
he is charged that amount, if he looks
as if dead broke he is simply told
that he owes the house nothing, as he
has nut boarded there long enough to
make it an object. The bouse is doing
a flourishing business all because of
this liberal system."
"The tire wardens arc doing their
duty and notifying ull house owners
to put in'proper Hues, as well as clean
up hack yards. Nelson is not to be
outdone in tidiness by Sprout or Ilalfour or Ainsworth."
".Surveyors are at work platting the
"Hoover" pre-emption into town lots.
This land comprises 180 acres and adjoins Nelson un the south. It Is not
known when the lots will be placed
un the market. "
"An effort will be mude'to gut a
weekly mail during the (dosed seuson.
Responsible parties are willing to
undertake the job, agreeing tu bring
in all mail matter delivered at Hound.' Kerry, Idaho, from local United Slates points, is well as that from
Vietoi ia. Several people have expressed opinion, in favor of the Kittle.
Dalles route over that of Hoiincrs'
Kerry; but it is believed that the Cor-
bin road will nut he operated to Little Dulles this winter, and that tho
lloiiners' Perry route is, therefure,
the better nne. Part uf the expense
will have to be raised by subscription.
"The l'nited Slates secretary of the
navy Is looking around for $1,000,(100
worth of nickel, lie wants to use it
for making armor plating for the new
war ships being built under his supervision, lie can get the whole amount
by simply purQh&flIng Atherton ami
(iiirrity's nickel mine,which is located
u few miles west of Nelson.

TIIK NOMINATIONS.
There were no surprises in the
nominations, which we were unfortunate enough to receive just a little
too late fur publication yesterday.
There were two electiuiis, Mr,
Seagram, nf North Waterluu.a Conservative, ami Mr. Charlton, North Norfolk, who is very much of an Independent : ill all the other constituencies,
as far ns known, there are contests.
In South Lanark the field is left to
two Conservatives, Mr. Haggart and
Ur. Preston. Mr. Haggart has represented the constituency for a greut
many years, and was a member of
the Maedonald, the Abbott, the
Thompson, the Howell, and the Tupper Governments, which followed in
quick succession from the early nineties to the triumph of the Liberals
in 1806. It is desirable, however
that be should lie defeated. He is a
man of considerable ability ; but it is
doubtful if bis association with it
brings any strength to the party,
while it is certain that the public
life of the country would lose nothing
by his letireineut. In another Ontario constituency, South Huron, the
light is between two Liberals, Mr.
-leKwiin and Mr. Macmillan. The
latter is the old member, a decent,
honest body who menns well, but of
narrow views and too intensely purti-
sun to see faults in his own party or
virtues in his opponents. The chastening effects of defeat would do him
good.
The Labor candidate in Winnipeg
finds an opponent at the last moment
in Mr. 10. 1). Martin, whu is running
us nn Independent. It is not the first
time Mr. Puttee nnd Mr. Martin huve
tried a full, the former currying off
the honor by a small and, us many
thought, a doubtful majority. Mr.
Martin will probably be successful
this time. His candMature is invest
ed with a degree of special interest
for British Columbians, on account of
the (act that he is a brother of the
noted Joseph, What his politics really
are is u little uncertain. He Iiub been
a Conservative; a few months ago he
wus retired us President of the Liberal Association of Winnipeg, and he
has the gieut merit of being irrccon-
ciliably opposed to Mr. Sifton and his
methods, lle takes strong ground too
against the Ottawa tlovernment, be
cause of their very serious trifling
with the question of tariff reform. If
iu British Columbia he would be nesting with his brother and the Mcln-
neses, which is equivalent to saying
that if elected the (lovernment will
not find him the warmest of supporters.
In our own Province the position uf
ter the nominations is precisely what
was expected. Burrard und Vale-Cariboo will be heard from later nn, nml
in .nth the    result   of   the   bnllotting
on Wednesday next will have its effect.
This is to be regretted, fur every
elector should    vote   according   to his
political convictions,   It   is   becausi
there is not principle enough in Cun.
adiun politics that the public life nl
Hie country is in such sore need of the
two processes of purification nnd elevation.
Tin, preferential tariff will he more
of :ni issue after the election than it is
now. The truth is the mass of the
people know little about the question
ns they have given it scarcely any
.study,   and   to   huve   It presented   to
them during an election contest ere

liitcal dodge. 'They will learn differ

cession to Oreot Britain,for which we
receive nothing in return. And It is

The Conservatives hud the best of it
in the nominations yesteiday. There
were two unopposed returns, one of
them u Conservative, Mr. Seagram,
and the other, Mr. Charlton, a disaffected Liberal who is so disappointed with his party that he finds himself in sympathy with Conservatives
on the principal questions at issue.
Are these the forerunners of a Conservative victory next   Wednesday?
If Mr. CHve I-lillipps-Wolley be not
elected for Nanaimo, he deserves to
be. A speech of his the other night,
in real ability, wit, humor, and
knowledge of pubhc questions, was a
brilliant affair, so much su that wo
doubt if it has been surpassed by any
candidate in any part of the Dominion. Mr. Wolley would reflect more
credit on the House of Commons than
the House of Commons would on him
If the electors of Nanaimo are am
bittous of distinction at Ottawa they
will elect him.
We give opportunity to The Victoria
Colonist to thus speak for itself:
"The Nelsou Miner, commenting on
the fact that the Coast cities are
making a bid for thu branch of the
Royal Mint, to bu established in Can-
ndu, rather snappishly insinuated that
the Coast wants to grab everything
und that the claims of the interior
towns lire disregarded. This is rather
unkind of The Miner. What did it
expect Victoria and Vancouver to do
in this instance���agitate for the loca
tion of the mint ut Nelsou?"
The Industriul World, of Rossland,
says: "The attempt of the Nelson
Conservatives to prejudice the busl
oess men of that City against thu candidate of the Labor party, by intimating that it intended to go into business in opposition to them in Nelson,
is but on par with many of the contemptible tricks often resorted to by
that party." The World will be relieved to know that no Conservative
in Nelson, and no person entitled to
speak for the Conservative party here,
bus made any attempt of tlie kind
mentioned or any other in the least
like it.

AnOpen Letter
To Voters
And Voters' Wives,
Dear Sir, and Madam :
I am a candidate for your
favor, for the position of leading jeweler of this good city
of Nelson.
I submit my platform for
your consideration :
I am opposed to " ways
that are dark" in business,
and favor open and honest
methods with the public. I
represent values as they actually are, and " call a spade a
spade" when I describe the
different qualities of goods.
I am in favor of selling
goods at such a profit only
over cost as will enable me to
continue business successfully, looking to my prosperity
in the large volume of business which will result in selling at moderate profits.
I am in favor of taking
trouble to please customers,
by returning their repair worK
promptly and keeping my
store clean, bright and attractive
I respectfully solicit your
vote and influence���
And a visit to my store.
Sincerely yours,
T.  H. BROWN.

word of a wonderful dseovery of a
pleasant tasting liquid that when
used before retiring by any one troubled witli a bad cough always ensures
a good night's rest. "It will soon
cure the cough too,"'writes Mrs S.
Hlmelburgor, "for three generations
of our family have used Ilr. King's
New Discovery for Consumption and
never found it's equal for Coughs and
Colds." It's an unrivaled life-saver,
when used for desperate lung diseases. Guaranteed bottles 50 cents
and Sl at the Canada Drug and Hook
Co.    Trial bottles free.
Just received at J. A. McDonald's
