CORDUA'S LAST MOMENTS.
A Pathetic Incident in the Execution
of the  Young German Officer,
London, Sept. 18. ���An account of
the execution of Lieutenant Cordua
iit Pretoria, that hart just reached here,
reads as follows:
Lieutenant Cordua received the
news of his sentence unflinchingly,
anil apparently accepted his fate with
unconcern. Subsequently, however,
he became somewhat anxious, and
made inquiries as to the possibility
of a reprieve. Indeed, he seemed
hopeful that his sentence would be
commuted right up   to this 'morning.
On Thursday evening a German pastor visited the prisoner, and remained
in the condemned cell all night. Cordua was very attentive to his ministrations, and left .with the pastor a
farewell message to his relatives in
Germany.
Shortly before seven this morning
the guard entered the prisoner's cell
and was proceeding to carry out the
process of pinioning when Cordua asked them as a favor not to do so, whereupon the guard   refrained.
Cordua died well. He marched
Steadily from the cell to tho jail
yard, showing not the slightest sign
of fear.    On reaching tlie yard he was
conducted   t 0   ruA   of   it,   where
he was placed against the wall, with
his back to the tiring party of ten.
The German pastor was with the condemned man   to the very last.
Cordua look his seal on the chair
provided for him with remarkable
composure. His eyes were then hand-
aged.and the order was promptly given to lire. The prisoner immediately
threw his anus in tlie air. and fell to
the ground dead. II was round that
six bullets had entered Cordua's body
at various points, The body was instantly carried into tho garden of the
jail, II few feet from Ihe jail yard,
and there buried.
At the lime very few were aware of
the execution, but the sound of the
musketry' lire was heard by people
outside tin1 jail yard, who instantly
jumped to the correct conclusion as
to the meaning of the sounds. The
news of the execution spread through
the town like wild fire, and caused a
profound impression.
A very pathetic incident subsequently happened in the neighborhood of
the jail. About il o'clock in tlie forenoon a handsome young woman called
at the jail'in a state of nervous anxiety, and nuked to see the prisoner, as
she was a friend of his. The news of
the execution was conveyed to her,
whereupon she broke down utterly,
and was taken away in a hysterical
condition.

special proof of her interest in all

Keep Men From the
Mines.
Ilazclton, Sept. IS.���The second day
of the anthracite coal miners Strike
began very quietly in this district.
What little change there was in the
situation this morning was in favor of
the striking miners. Ab far as reports had been received from all parts
of the region there had not been one
break iu tlie ranks of the strikers,
and in many mines there were fewer
men working than yesterday. Some
of the collieries are short of men and
it is doubtful if they can continue
work during the entire day. Every
otlicial connected with the United
Mine Workers, now in the district,
with the exception of President
Mitchell,Blurted out before six o'clock
this morning for picket duty at the
various collieries. All had returned
to headquarters by 8 a.m. and reported that they had been successful in
Inducing the men to stay away from
the various workings.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., Sept. is.���There
was no change In the Htrike situation
in tlie Wyoming Valley this morning.
All the collieries that bad been compelled to suspend operations yesterday
were idle today. The companies had
steam up at someof the mines ready
to start the machinery but men did
not put in an appearance.
Pottsville,   I'a.,  Sept.   is.���All the
Schuylkill region collieries resumed
work this morning with the single
exception of More's, operated by Dod-
son A Co. The Vulcan and the ltnck
Mountain near Mnhoney City are
short handed. Lehigh Coal Co.'s
Centralis collieries which shut down
at noon yesterday, owing to scarcity
of coal, resumed this morning, with
a less number of men at work than
yesterday. It was said that work
wou.il be suspended at noon today or
perhaps earlier. It was reported today from Nesquehonlng that last
uiglit when Hugh Demscy, of Scran-
ton, and .lames Gallagher of Ilazclton, labor leaders, attempted to address a meeting, they Were jeered and
pelted wtih stale vegetables and had
to stop.
ISIU PRICE FOB A MINE.

would receive 113,000,000 for his Camp
Bird mine at Ouray, Colorado, from
a syndicate of English and American
Investors headed by Alfred licit, tlie
South African diamond king, aud .1.
I'. Morgan. It Is said a draft covering tlie first payment is now on deposit at the First National Hank.
John Hays Hammond, the mining engineer,arrived at Ouray today to make
a linal examination   of   the   mine   on
behalf of the syndicate,
RESULTED IN BLINDNESS.
Lead, S. I)., Sept. 18.���While working in a mine north of this city, Captain G. Tod of Lead, was accidentally
struck In the back of the neck by a
mining hammer. The blow shattered
the nerves in such a way that total
blindness bus come to the mail and it
is feared it will be permanent. Tod
was captain of a troop in the Jamie-
son raid in South Africa and when
captured by the Hoers he with others
was banished from the country.
ONLY To EUROPE.
Berlin, Sept. 18,���Tho Vosslsch Zeit-
ung points out that the "lingular orders" given by the Portuguese Governor of Moamhlquc authorizing the
departure of Mr, Kruger  for   Europe,
permits Mr. Kruger to sail only for a
European port, adding: "The government in so doing goes beyond its
lowers. Doubtless Lisbon is acting
nuler pressure from Great llritain
vhich fears presumably that Mr. Kruger is  going to the United States."
SITUATION    IMPROVING.
Galveston Presents a Cleaner and
More Porsperous Appearance.
Galveston, Tex., Sept. 18.���The situation continues lo improve, is what
one is told now when one applies at
any of the various headquarters for
information. In fact this statement is
being made witli gratifying monotony all over the city. Tlie work has
been brought down to a business basis as far as possible and the amount
of system aud order displayed iu the
various departments would be cause
for considerable surprise to any one
who might return to Galveston after
an absence of three or four days. Tlie
men have been assured of compensation for their labor anil they now go
about their unpleasant tasks with a
much better grace than heretofore.
Supplies and money are now pouring
in from all points . It is stated that
at least seven figures are needed to express the amount of cash so far received. This is being used judiciously.
The opinion is general that the number of dead will be about 0.0(10. The
exact number of course will never be
definitely known. There are no developments which would lead to the
belief that the estimate of the property loss of 822,000,000 is too high.
The people are becoming more cheerful every day.

the Delta has proceeded to Canton,
The problem of properly relighting
the city was solved at the meeting of
the Council last night, when it was
decided to repair the old dam, Work
was commenced this morning but the
city engineer says that it will be at
least two weeks and probably considerably longer before citizens are again
supplied with a proper lighting service.
The action of the Council was upon
the verbal report of li. C. Riblet, to
the mayor. The report in nearly
every instance coincided with the one
presented about three weeks ago by
City Engineer McCulloch.
Ten men were put to work this
morning and as the work advances
more men will be added. A trench
nine feet deep and three feet wide
will be sunk below the present excavation. On the side next to the water
will be a timber facing III inches
thick, while the rest of the trench
will be filled with a clay mixture,
making the lower portion of the dam
a substantial one. From tlie upper
point of this work a timber crib work
will be constructed, and will be filled
in with rock. The entire enterprise
will, it is expected,  cost  over   98,500.
The capacity of the dam when completed will be nearly 1,500,000 gallons,
and will run the present number of
lights eight hours without the natural How of the creek. It was intimated tliis morning that before any lights
could be added to the present number
now in operation, that a new water
wheel will have to be purchased as
:.'U() horse power is required, and tlie
present wheel iB not giving this.

Until dissolution is announced and
the date lixed for the election, it can
hardly be expected that the parties
will work themselves up to that con
ditlon of excitement that is the only
accepted indication of earnestness
The Canadian Premier is very Knglish
Four years ago nothing would di
him but that the country should pro
nounce for free trade "as they have it,
in England." It is true he abandoned this policy as soon as he found
himself in a position to carry it out
but he has been careful to have it un
derstood that he remains very English
nevertheless. Yesterday the cable conveyed the information that the Hritish
House of Commons would be dissolved
on tin' Sfith. In bis desire to do
things '"as they have them in Kng-
land," it will not be surprising if Sir
Wilfrid Lauricr shall follow this announcement with another to the effect
that the Canadian House of Commons
is to lie dissolved very soon. As soon
as that step is taken tile parties may
be expected to stir themselves into
activity, and to bend lo the work they
have to do with all the earnestness
that could be desired.
This is a good time, therefore
while the head is free from excite
ment and the blood is yet cool, to giv>
a little word of caution. There is
generally supposed to be some sort ot
rivalry between Nelson and Rossland.
There is no need to be, and among tin
Sober beads of both places we do not
believe there is. There is no reason
why there should be. Rossland has
interests of its own, and Nelson has
interests of its own. and in no manner or degree do they conflict. They
have separate and distinct destinies,
and each is working out its own without being in any way dependent upon
or affected by the other. Kossland's
growth and prosperity cannot injure
Nelson, nor can Nelson's injure Rossland, Let us clear our minds, therefore, of any such thought that the two
places are rivals and that jealousy i
the predominant sentiment in th
relations between the two.
In the election about to be held
these places have been asked to fur-
nish the candidates. The Conservatives have gone to Rossland for their
candidate, and Nelson is honored in
giving the Liberals tbeir's. When it
comes to tlie voting, it is to be hoped
that the people of neither town will
lose their heads and mark their ballots through the influence of locality
alone. What the electors of tlie Hiding are asked to do is to elect a member to go to Ottawa to legislate for
the Dominion, ami to Influence the
administration of the affaire of the
entire six millions of the Canadian
people.     The   country    is   divided    oil
the question   whether a  Conservative
or a Liberal Government would he tin-
better under present circumstances,
That is a large question, a most important question, and the sane, sober,
intelligent elector will address himself to it without any thought of the
locality in which either ,,f th,- candidates resides. The fact that a member 1s taken from Rossland or Nelson
cannot iu itself exercise the slightest
influence in directing the course ol
affairs at Ottawa, Those electors of
Nelson who believe that a change of
government would be in the best Interest of the country will vote for Ihe
candidate whose habitation happens
to be Rossland just as freely as if he
were a citizen or their own town, ami
those electors of Rossland who aro content with the present administration
and who desire Its continuance would
be silly indeed to sacrifice their conviction to a mere sentiment ,,f jealousy. It is not a question of Rossland
or Nelson, hut of Conservative or Liberal lloveriimciit dining the n,vi pnr.
liamentary term.
Much of the literature is denied to
the defonoe of Mr. Hilton himself.
For two obvious reasons Unit is most
natural, but the defence is not always
discreet. In a late issue of matter for
use in Ihe party organs. Sir Charles
Tupper is taken to task for saying
that Mr. Sifton is a corrupt politician, lie cannot be, it, is declared iu
reply, for "every effort has been made
unceasingly from the day Mr. Sifton
entered public life to discover something crooked in his conduct," and
without success.    This   is proving too
much. Unless the gentleman was under strong suspicion, and with good
cause, these efforts would not have
been made und continued so persistently. If an innocent man, he would
not have been pursued in the manner
described. The mere fact that he has
not been found out is only evidence
of skill in covering his tracks. Kill
has he nol been found out'.' A court
and jury not, tied down by the rules
prescribed by law would hardly say lie
has nol been.
All the Boundary newspapers agree
that there is most gratifying evidence
of a revival of business activity
throughout that district. Similar
testimony comes from other sections
of the country. In and about Nelson
it is doubtful if a more confident feeling was ever experienced. Through
out the Slocan region especially this
feeling is most pronounced. It certainly looks as if Kootenay were on
the eve of better times than it has
yet known, The prevailing condition
of tlie mining industry at this moment is one of hope, greatly strengthened and supported by a feeling; of
perfect confidence in the future..
Some years ago, when a Conservative Finance Minister conceived it a
pleasure to announce a surplus, the
financial critics on tlie Liberal side
were in the habit of denouncing it as
an unnecessary and unjust exaction.
It represented so much money needlessly taken from the pockets-of an already over-taxed people, and instead
of being subject for boasting was
downright cruelty. Today the Liberals are cuckling with delight over an
alleged surplus of 812,000,000, collected within the past year anil a half, as
if it were a praiseworthy achievement and all tlie credit for it belonged to them. Principles, professions,
sentiments, beliefs have all gone by
the board : there is not one left to remind ns of the old Liberals who used
to cry for economy and retrenchment.

OUTPUT OF KLONDIKI
Relieved Thai   Royalty   Will lie
On Sixteen   Million,
Vancouver. Sept, 18.���According to
the latest information in their possession, the Cold Commissioner'solliee at
Dawson estimate that royalty will bo
paid on Sir,.uiiii.nun of Klondike cold
this season. This news is brought
from Dawson by W, A. Bauer, C, E.,
who lias just arrived in Vancouver
from the Golden .North. Mr. Bauer
adds that it is generally understood
throughout the Klondike country
that the actual clean-up ivill run up
to 18,000,000 or 110,000,000 more, or iu
round figures, 835,000,000 but royalty
will no' lie paid on more than S10,-
000,000,
Mr.Bauer lias been surveying in the
Klondike on a very extensive scale,for
the Hritish American and other big
corporations, and he conies hack enamored of Canada's raagnidcent birthright, Breaking through his customary professional    reserve.   Mr.    Haucr
made the following statement i
���I have   been In mining camps  all
my life, pretty much all over the
world, hut 1 never was anywhere
where I saw such evidence of unlimited wealth, such vast possibilities,
such magnificent opportunities for the
investment of capital. "
Iu Bpoaklng generally of the country, Mr. Bauer spoke first of its geological formation, the formation being what geologists would call mien
schist, lie said that over the whole
country, nearly, there was 0 layer of
gravel: rijrht up to the mountain summits, 1,000 feet high, was watcrwash-
cd gravel. Be bad worked within a
radius of 100 miles from Dawson and
wherever he went he found this gravel. No evidence occurs that glacial
action is the cause of the present alluvial deposit, but apparently at some
remote period the whole country was
low lying. At this period the auifer-
oiis deposits occurred.and subsequently
n great volcanic upheaval took place;
thus the golden sands are found at the
mountain    tops, as  well   aa in   the
creeks.

EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE.   ;.
II. E. French's Company at tlie Opera
House Last Night.
It may bo that Manager Annable
has been using more care in securing
attractions, or it may be that there
arc belter companies on tlie road this
season than there have been during
past seasons. Hut certain it is, whatever tlie cause, that Nelson is enjoying better pefonnances in the Opera
House at tlie present time than she
has for some time past. The production of "Quo Vadis" by the R. E.
French Company last night was, because of its genuine excellence, a surprise to everyone of the 500 people
who were crowded into tlie Opera
House. Nelson does not look for, and
because of her isolated position so far
as theatrical routes are concerned,
cannot expect first class attractions.
But Mr. French has brought a surprise. He lias surrounded himself
with talented people, and, if last
night's performance is any indication,
is to give Nelson a week of thorough
enjoyment. It is not necessary here to
tell tlie story of "Quo Vadis."
That has been told. Of those who
produced it last night only the best
can be said. Mr. ltiehard Scott as
PetroniuS, tlie arbiter of fashion at
the court of Nero, was perhaps the favorite with Hie audience. Mr. Lincoln J. Plummer, as Nero, curried his
part well anil looked the heartless being Nero was. Others deserving of
mention arc Mr. Walter Brooks as
Viuieius. Mr. Maurice O'Connor as
Tigcllinus. Mr. L. Morris ill the very
difficult part of Chilo Chiloniiles, Mr.
I!. E. French as I'rsus, Miss Lcota
Howard as Lygia. MiBS Mamie
llohlcn as Little Aulus, Miss Ouida
Marion as Eunice and Miss Eva
Earle us The Empress.
The scenic effects were splendid,
tlie burning of Rome eliding great
admiration.
Tonight the company presents The
Silver King and if merit is a good
drawing card the house should be iill-
ed as it was last, night.

In the society columns of the Vancouver Province the following in regard to the Edith Miller Concert appears. Miss Miller and her company
will be in Nelson on Thursday evening at Fraternity Hull: The concert
on Thursday evening at the Theatre
Royal was quite one of the social musical events of the season. Miss Edith
Miller's gown waB a delight to all
femenine eyes, being a most exquisite
overdress of bluck scquined net,which
clung to her figure in graceful snake-
like folds, glistening as it was caught
by the lights with every movement.
Tlie bodice, which was of the same
material showed a .skilled hand in the
art of drapery, and as a finish awhile
silver scquined net was carried across
the front and over the shoulder
straps. On the left shoulder she wore
a large bunch of Hcarlet roses, which
gave a delightful touch of color,   Miss
lorsythe, the accompanist, was becomingly attired in a white silk,with
turquoise velvet trimmings the bodice,

Capital $250,000, in Ten Cent Shares.   Four Claims, All Crown Granted,

The properties of this company are situated directly west and 600 feet
lower in elevation than the famous Le Roi No. 1 and Le Roi No. 2, that are
now shipping 10,000 tons a week. The Workings consist of a shaft and Two
Tunnels, driven to tap the ore body on three separate and distinct veins. No. 1
Tunnel on this vein is in over 100 feet, and No. 2 Tunnel on this vein has
reached a depth of 112 feet, with three and one-half feet of shipping ore in
sight, and forty feet of the ledge to cross-cut. The ore is identical with the
Le Roi ore, the High-Grade Gold-Copper Ore of the camp. The No. 3 Vein
has been opened in five places for 2,000 feet, which dips to the I. X. L. adjoining, which is now shipping the highest grade ore in British Columbia. Several
buildings are on the ground, with two blacksmith shops and large boarding
house, etc., with water and timber in abundance.
Our assays have averaged from $5.00 to $800 in Gold, Copper and
Silver; and the shipping facilities are the best. The Great Northern Railway
runs three times through the ground, three smelters close at hand, and reduced
charges of $4.50 per ton for shipping and smelting, and we are now ready to
start shipping ore.
The shares in this Company have been strictly pooled, and we will issue
Pooled Receipts only until the Pool is dissolved. We need money, and will
send you 100 shares for $7.00, 1.000 for $60.00, 5,000 for $275.00, and 10,000
for $500.00.    Address
