Mr. Hamilton snid nothing hnd been

would look into tho mutter toclny.
He thought tbojJOlty should secure the
ground iu the viol lity of the smelter,

of Ihe City and lako and oould bo

THE H. B. C. COMMISSIONER.
Mr. Chipmanis uot a stranger to
Nelson as ho line been viaiting here at
intervals for some years. Whon asked
what wns the object of his present trip
ho said it wns just to see the oountry.

asked if his company were thinking of

wns simply lookiug over Ihe country,

he pleased. Tho reporter passes the
responsibility on to 'be renders.

SENATOR    COX.
Senator Cox nil through his successful career has been laboring under the
disadvantage of never having been
iu Nolson. But he said that it. wns
never too late to mend so laughed at
tbe hot weather nnd hied himself westward. He was greatly surprised, he
snid, at finding such a City as Nelson.
He hud uo idea we ban such a metropolitan little plnce here and wns greatly
taken with it. Ho hnd nothing of a
pnulio nature to discuss nud when the
scribe endeavored to get nn expression
of opinion out of him on the Premier's
Senate reform measure, the Senator
laughingly said that ho oid not euro if
thoy did away with the whole thing.
It was a question nt all evonts, thnt

down yesterday. Tlio item of greatest
importance to N?lson is that Nelson

Rossland is to have n liko sum of

If the Provincial Government will
coutribute n sum of $10,500 toward the

A sqund from tho Souta Kootenay

beyoud Bogustowu yesterday and
measured it off with a chain. It wns

difforent orders, rulings and judgments
of the court. Colonel Peyton sets forth
the following:
"Thut rolying upou said decroo of
divorce and believing that thereby
the bonds of matrimony therefore existing between the plaiEtiff herein and
the defendant were dissolved, this
defendant did, upon Novermber 4,1885,
at Spokane  Falls.   W. T., marry Vio-

reyton Was Divorced riOm, Thereafter learning that the plaintiff
sought to east doubt upon tbo reality
of said mnrringe, claiming that the
divorce from the plaintiff herein granted the defendant upon October 17,
1885, was irregular, or iuvalid, the defendant and his said wife, formerly
Viotoira Houghton, oaused the marriage ceremony to be re-performed over
them at San Francisco, Calfornia, on
March 12, 1986; they believing that
if thare was aught of irregularity or
invalidity in the decree of divorce entered in October, 1885, it wns cured by
the judgments thereafter entered in
that and kindred suits, brought by
this paintiff heroin.
"That during nil these years since
the marriage of defendant and his present wife, they have been, and now aro,
living together as husband and wife
iu the community in which they wero
married. Tnree children have been
born to them, two of whom are living,
and growing up as youths in thoir
parent's care. During the greater
portion ot this time they had bnt little
property but by their joint efforts from
year to year, this property was added
to, and through fortunate investments
in mines they wero in 1895, possessed
of considerable property in the State
of Washington, real nnd personal, of
the value of several huudred thousand
dollars, all of whioh hns been acquired
through their joint efforts since their
mnrringe.
''In 1895 or 1800 defendnnt was commonly reported to be a wealthy man
and it was then and not until then,
that the plaintiff herein began to make
demands upon him, nnd to attempt
to oast doubt upon the reality of the
decree of divorce of October 17 1883,
and upon the validity of the mnrringe
of defendant and his wife, and it was
because of ber acts iu so doing that
the marriage ceremcuy of 1896 was
performed. And defendant avers that
it is against public polioy, good morals
and fundamental principles of equity
tbnt defendant should now be allowed
to wage this suit in the courts of law
for that her delay has been most unreasonable, unjustifiable and unconscientious. ''

Colonel Isaac N. Peyton lost no unnecessary time in filing an answer to
tho sensational suit instituted by his
former wife, Mrs. Helen M. Peyton,
praying for a half interest in the preseut estate of Colonel Peyton.
In the first placo tho Oolouol denies
in the answer whicii he filed yesterday
that the plaintiff is his lnwfully ranr-
rted wife. He nlso denies thnt he left
plaintiff in the City of St. Louis with
the intention of goiug elsewnere to
provide a home for her and himself,
und denies that he ever told plaintiff
thnt such wns lhs intent.
He denies that iu the wint��r or
spring of 1880, or at any other time,
he entered into any pretended mnr-
riage under nn assumed name, or at
all, nud denies thnt since that time or
at all, he has been unlawfully living
aud cohabitatiiig with any wcman.aud
furthor denies that be is the husband
of   the plaintiff.
The answer of Colonel Peyton,
stripped of its legal phraseology, is to
the effeot that in the yenr 1885 he wns
divorced from the plaintiff in the present case by the distriot court of Klickitat country, holding terms at Golden-
dale, on the ground that the present
planitiff had been guilty of oruel treatment. Mrs. Peyton failed at that time
to enter an appearance and a default
was taken against her and a decree of
divorce was on October 1, 1885, duly
signed by George Turner, judge of said
court, aud entered upou the records.
Afterwards the pnpers relating to the
case were lost or stolen from the files
of the court aud their whereabouts
are uot now known bv Colonel Peyton.
April 10, 1880, Helen M. Peyton appeared iu the foregoiug suit and petitioned the court for au order vaoatiug
and setting aside tbe judgment and
decree, and further asked for a change
of venue of said cause to the distriot
court of the Fourth judioial distriot of
Washington territory, holding terms
at Choney, in and for Spoknne county.
May 20, 1886, the application was
granted aud the case was transferred
to Cheney by order of Judge George
Turner.
The action to set aside the decree
wns resisted by Oolouel Peyton, and
ou August 20, 1886, he was ordered to
pay to Helen M. Peyton certain sums
of money for her maintenance and at-
toruey's fees during ihe pondenoy of
tbe suit. December 28, 1886, Colonel
Peyton and his former wife Helen M.
Peyton, entered into a stipulation and
ngieenient iu writing whereby it was
stipulated and agreed thut Mrs. Peyton had received aL property right to
which she was theu or at nny time had
been entitled ; that the decree of di-
voroe theretofore entered in said ennse
wns vnlid nnd legal; thnt tbe petition
of plaintiff to vnoate the samo oould
not bo maintained, and that said petition should be dismissed by the court
nnd that the order of dismissal should
be a bar to nny further proceedings by
Mrs. Peyton agninst the decree of divorce aud thnt the order for alimony
should bo vacated.
December 24, 1886, Judge Turner
made tho ordei dismissing the petition
to vacnte the decree and vaoatiug the
order ol'r alimony.
During the month of March, 1886,
Mrs. Helen M. Peyton brought  action

There seems to he food for nil, but
there are a great number of men who

Meeting.
The following is the aooount of
Tuesday's meeting of the Nelson Boaid
of Trade, which appeared in yesterdays Spokesman-Review and Rossland
Miner:
At the largest attended meeting the
Nelson   Board   of   Trade    ever  reld,
Mrs. neieu in. rv,u��, ���.������������,  ��� called to reoonsider a resolution passed
for divorce ngaiust Colonel Peyton in I by a Braa" majority at an unrepresent-
thc district court at Cheney, alleging In,ive meeting Inst week to restrain
desertion and failure to support. Afterwards Mrs. Peyton filed an ameud-
ed compbiint, alleging that the colonel hnd secured a divorco from her
through fraud. She nsked, not only
for divorce, but that their property
rights be adjudicated.
December 15, 1886, tbe parties came
to nn agreement regarding their property rights and the divoroe oase was
hy stipulation disimssed by Judge
Turner.
On December 18, 1889, Mrs. Peyton
commenced another action against
Colonel Peytou alleging in tho complaint the marriage of plaintiff and defendant, and likewise alleging the
divorce granted Colonel Peyton upon
October 17, 1885, without settlement
of property rights and without division of community property, and prayed au adjudication of the community
property rights of the plaintiff and
defendant and the entry of a decree
giving to her such portion of said proporty as she by law was entitled to or
that a sum in gross should be allowed
her in lieu of her interest in suid community property. December 26, 1886,
n judgment was entered by said oourt
iu accordance with the allegations
and prayer of her complaint. Tbe
judgment rendered was for tbe sum of
$8,000 and wns immediately settled by
Colonel Peyton.
After reciting the above faots and
attaching to the  answer copies of   the

only one dissenting vote to nllow the

TO   RELEASE   THE   PRISONERS.
WORK COMMENCED YESTERDAY
Yesterday the first sod was turned
for the Cianbrook-Nortb Star mine
branch of the C.P.R. The road will
be 20 miles in length and when opened will be a great boon to East Kootenay as it will provide some valuable
mines with excellent shipping facilities. The North Star will be developed on an elaborate scale. The
work of construction is being dono
by tho C. P. R. itself. Tenders were
culled for some time ago and several
oontractorB figured on tho job, but
when the tenders were opened the company decided that ihey were too high
and did uot aocept any of them. An
offer was made to let some contracts
for little pieces of tho work but the
contraotorB withdrew.

The coiiiinisioners hope to be able to
miikii arrangements under which
money, to be paid for the ransom of tbe
Spanish captiveB, is to be deposited in
the bank to be drawn by Filipinos at
a futnre date, so that tbe money
cannot be used to carry on th* war
agninst the United States. The Filipinos refuse to allow civilian prisoners to embark on board the ship leaving Aparri although tbey had passports signed by Aguinaldo. There
have beeu terrible rains here during
tho last two days. In consequence it
has been necessary to use boats in
moving about the streets of Manila
and the whole country is flooded. The
total precipitation thus far in Jnly

THE LEAD INDUSTRY.
The Boards of Trnde of Southern
British Columbia, whoBe delegates
are to meet in conference at RosBland
next month, will once again breathe
freely as they learn that liberty of
speeoh and ireedom of discussion are
not to be prohibited by the miniature
autoorat of Nelson. They may discuss
the Eight-Hour law if thoy wish, although tainted on the edge with politics ; and other questions of interest to
tbe mining fraternity may be taken
up without fear of more serious disaster than the displeasure of a very irresponsible but also very trraBci-
ble person. Among these, aa bas been
intimated, is the lead question, of great
importance to tbe Kootenays. Its disoussion at the conference will be
awaited with much interest in business oiroles generally. The country
is exceptionally rich in lead deposits,
but owing to the neglect of Governments at Ottawa little hns been realised from them. The question to be considered is, what is the best policy to
adopt to encourage the industry and
what steps Bhould be tnken to arouse
the Government to a sense of its importance?
Tbe subjeot iB treated at Borne length
in the ourrent issue of The Trail Creek
News, its attention being  called to it
by the  faot   that  lead  ore   in  large
quantities is lying in the smelter bins
at  tbat  place    awaiting    treatment.
Nothing is being   done,   however,   as
owing to the present  conditions it  is
impossible to comnete with the Amerioan trade.    All  this immense wealth
of the Kootenays is lying undeveloped,
doing no good to any one,   because tbe
Government refuse to stir band or foot
to encourage Canadian smelting.   If
the people at Ottawa would only raise
the duties on imported   lead  and   its
produots,   the  home  industry   would
quickly find itself in a flourishing condition.   The News has no hope of this,
however, as  the  Government    refuse
to meddle with the tariff.     The alternative is to remove the unties  ou lead
produots of Canadian bullion refined in
the United   States.   There is just  as
little hope   of   this, for, as The News
observes,   "the  people  nt Ottawa  do
not appreciate in the least the value of
our western industries.''
We do not know that there is anything new in the remarks made by
our contemporary. The measures of
relief it suggests hnve been advocated
time and again by others. But it
does good service if only in keeping
the subject before the public. It enn-
not be discussed too often, nor enn
too much be said of it. There will bo
intelligent discussion at the conference, as tho subject will be iu the
hands of men who understand every
phase of it. We enconrnge ourselves
to hope tbat there will also be practicnl
results. Tho Government cannot remain indifferent forever to tbe necessity of giving the lead industry of
British Columbia a chance, nnd when
the disadvantages under which it is at
present laboring aro presented to them
by an expert aud influential body like
the conference of tho Kootenay Boards
of Trade they will foel bound to give
some heed to them.
lines; hut, just now, what we hnve
chiefly to deal with here are questions
more of a business than politicnl char-
acter. We have uo surplus of men,
able nud willing to enter public life.
In faot, most pooplo believe su;h meu
are too few. Moreover, to drnw Federal linns would be to divide meu who
hnve hitherto acted in full accord In
lJrovini'inl mutters, and throw iuto
enforced alliance others whose views
aB to thn host policy for British Columbia aro widely dissimilar.
"Tho division of he voters of this
Proviuce into Conservatives and Lib
oraBls is largely tho result of accident.
They hnve never been divided upon
nny groat iBsuo of a Federal character.
In this respect the similarity of
British Columbia and New Brunswick
is remarkable. These aro the ouly
two Provinces of the Dommiou where
the lines of cleavage existing nt tho
time it Uniou have been iguored.
Thej were ignored iu New Brunswick
because the great issue of Confederation overshawdowed everything else,
and upon it the old Provincial parties
were hopelessly divided. Thoy were
iguored in this Province, beoause wi'h
Confederation came responsible Government and new issues. In New Brunswick when tho attempt wns mnde to
introduce Federnl lines, the nuswer of
the people was over-whelmning iu
fnvor of tbe Government thnt declined
to recognise them, nud so we believe
it would be in this Proviuce. Only a
very small proportion of the people
allow themselves to be swayed in such
matters by the wishes of leaders or
would-be leaders."
available material, without regard at
all to the immaterial accident of Dominion party creed." The best we
can get���that is the policy to adopt,
for it is the safest to follow, and will
wear longest, and will give the moat
satisfaction.

If Mr. Herschel-Oohen resided in Nelson he would be taunted with being a
Johnnie-Oome-Lately. In Victoria
he is welcomed as a moat desirable addition to tie populatiou, of whioh he
has been a unit for several months.
He made a speech at the annual meeting of the Viotoria Board of Trade a
fpw days ago, of which only a summary appeared in the newspapers. It
has been interesting enough, however,
to attract a good deal of notice. Mr.
Hersehel-Cohen is a gentleman of
considerable mining experience, and
hiB speech was devoted to the discussion of regulations and conditions governing that industry in British Columbia. So valuable were his criticisms
esteemed tbat The Colonist has extended to him an invitation to write out
his remarks in full in order that they
may be published for the benefit of
tbe publio. We hope the gentleman
will find it agreeablo to aot on the invitation. With The Colonist, we believe that intelligent and disinterested
oritioiBm should be welcomed; and
when wo are told that conditions here
are capable of improvement, it is a
very greot mistake to become angry
and abusive, and to declare tbat the
person who Bnys it is an ouemy of the
Province, as actually happened in a
recent instance.
PARTY LINES.
There is uncertainty as to tbe outcome ot the Ministerial crisiB at Viotoria. What is to happen is a question
tbat is exercising every one. Will the
old Government go on, witb a new Attorney-General? Will there be a general reconstruction; Will it all end
in a dissolution? And if 111 a dissolution, are events likely to so Bhapo
themselves that the people will di
vide on party lineB? These are tho
considerations, doubtless, wbich are
foroing the party question so much to
the front at the present time. All
the leading newspapers are discussing
it. We quote Borne views expressed in
a recent number of Tbe Colonist:
"Party Government has not proved
���uoh an invariable success tbat it
���bould be resorted to, unlosa under absolute necessity. Possibly, by and by,
when the Province is more thickly
settled, and the various problems in
Government which require omul attention now have been disposed of, our local politios may settle down  to party

If tlie BUbjeat matter of a eerlnin liv-
Inw luvl not been legislated on before
the revision then there might possibly
liB some force in Mr. Taylor's nrgu
ment oa thit pun'. Hut this revised
fire by-law simply amends existing
legislation.
The Municipal Clnnaes Act, (sub-
sec. 23 ot soe. all) clearly gives the
Cily power to nntlioriM the Kin Warden nail Bnilding Inspector to give
permits for tho erection of buildings
within the prescribed limits.
Mr. Taylor argued that Troves had

As to the nso of the word "framf

snob n bnilding is not literally men-
tinned in the act, yet tins term is syn-

enstonury trade name for n wooden

this is what the bylaw means.
As tn the enforcing of the by-law this
was n mora question on the definition
of the word "enforoe" as used in the

that this word menus that the Builrl-

The Spokane Duily Obroniolo is responsible for the statement that the
report that McKenzie & Maun, the
well known wining operators and rail-
roai! oontractors, intend untkiUR a Hu
tatiou of a large part ot their British
Columbia mining properties, has lioen
oflloially confirmed. Tho properties
will be limit,mI in Canada and Ring.
land in two great oompuuies, one of
which has already been organised.
D. D. Mnnu, a member of the firm
ot MoKenzio & Mann, reoently gavo
out a number of interesting facts iu
an interview with an Ottawa reporter. He said tfcut all their proper-
ties in the Boundary will he tluutod iu
one company with a capital Block of
��r>,000,000. The North Star, near Fort
Steole, will bo incorporated hy, ltsolf,
but the arrangements for its notation
bare not yet been completed, It is
understood that the North Star will be
���old to tho oompany for $1,600,000,
part cash and part stock, hut tb e
terms of the  deal wore not  givon out.
The company into which tlio Boundary properties will be consolidated was
organized soveral weeks ago, but has
not yet beeu registered. It is oflloially
known as the Dominion Oopper Mines,
Limited. The oapital stock is $6,���
000,000, divided into 5,000,000 shares
at fl eaoh. Of this capital stook il,
000,000 shares will be given lor the
propertitB and 2,000,000 shares have
been placed in the treasury.
Tbe properties wbich the company
aoquires under this deal nre six of tbe
most promising claims in the Boundary���tbe Stemwinder, Brooklyn, Idaho, Montezuma, Rawbido and Golden
Eagle. While all are good properties,
the development work bos beeu chiefly
confined in the Brooklyn and Stem-
winder.
The Brooklyn is a crown granted
property, located under the old miuiug
aot, and is consequently OOCxliiOO
feet. The ledgo ruus north and south
and is 100 feet iu width. The limestone wall is easily discernahle on tbo
surface, and the lode can be traced tho
entire distanoe  to tho   opposite  wall.
A donble compartment shaft 9x4U
feet inside the timbers, bas bepn sunk
to a depth of 360 feet. This shaft is
at an angle of 70 degreep. There nre
two levels, one at 50 feet and tho other
at 160 feet. The greater development
work bas been done at tbe latter level.
The ledge has boen oiossout, the entire
distance ot 150 feet. There ia also a
75 foot drift on the ore body. It is
tbe intention to orosscut and drift at
250 feet. This work is to be started
in a fow days.
Tbe company haB an assay office on
tbe ground wbich is kept buay turning out values from sampleB. What
tbe values are has not been made
pablioc, but it is Bate to say thut the
Brooklyn ore rnns high in copper and
also contains good gold values. Thero
are about 600 tons of sbiDping ore on
the dump. A SOxtiO shaft house, Dlili
teet high, built of lumber and roofed
witb corrugated iron, shelters two Unhorse power boilers and hoist. Tbere
is also a No. 5 plunger pump, but
there has yet been no necessity for its
use. Tbe plant has a sufficient oapac-
city to sink the shaft to the 500-foot
level.
A well built wagon road leads from
the Brooklyn to the Stemwinder. The
shaft is similar to tbat on the Brooklyn,
being 9x4^ feet in the clear, with an
inclination of 70 degrees. Eight-iuch
square timbers and two-inch planking
from tho sides. The shaft house is 80
feet in length and 50 feet in height.
The building is intended for the big
compressor plant, which will be installed ns soon as the railway iB completed, and which will furnish power
to the two mines. Iu the meantime
a 80 horse power boiler, a hoist and
pnmp oomprise the plant.
Tbe width of the Stemwinder ledge
has not beon determined, but it is
knowr to De   severul     hnudred  feet.
The dump contains several hundred
tons of ore. It runs as high as 20 per
cent copper, will average 10 per cent
copner, and also carries substantial
gold values. The shaft is clown 175
feet. The ledge has beon crossout at
115 feot and a drift run. The abaft
will bo continued at different levels.
Ymir, July 19.���Through a typographical error in yours of the 19th
re the assays on tho Silver Lako
group, it was made to read $110,
whioh   should   have read  $10.
Today a ton of supplies was sent out
to the Big Home Group situated at
the head of the south fork of Porcupine
Oreek.
The Yellowstone mine which is owned by an eastern syndicate h ave made
arrangements to erect a mill for the
purpose of treating their ore. The
property is very nearly developed, and
will be ready to stope as soon as the
mill is completed. Part of Lavin's old
mill is being removed to the property
and timber will be sawn iuto lumber
on tbe ground as tbere iB no road to
tbe property; tbis will save the con ���
strnotion of a road for tbe present.

J. W. 'Williams, who hns just bonded

Duob ess group on Lemon Creek with

asked is understood to be $2000. The
ore is very rich going high in tree

GRAND   FORKS NEWS.
Tho Anticipated Smelter is Now to Be
an Accomplished Fuct.
The Spokane Daily Chronicle states
that the smelter site at Grand Forks
has beon a scene of great activity all
week nnd a good force of men hnve
been working hurd getting things in
readiness for tho beginning of actual
constructijn on tho building.
J. W. Bye of Spokane has arrived In
the city to take charge of tbo brick
and stone work for the plant, tho company having decided to do all this
work thoniselves by day labor instead
of lotting oontracts. A force of men
is now at, work getting the grades and
levels from tho dam to the flume and a
gang is also at work grading tor the
big flumo. The company has decided
to stnrt n machine shop ii connection
with their smelter plnnt. This will
be tho first in the Boundary oountry
and will be a custom shop, doing work
for the outsido mineB and companies
as well as for tho plnnt. A new outfit
of machinery bas beon ordered and is
now on the road from Chicago.
The first tier of tho temporary bridgo
to be put across tho north fork at the
smelter site hns already been completed
and work will be pushed ahead as fast
as possible.
KiIub containing over 2,00,000 brick
are now being burned at Ward's
briokyard above the town nnd he is
advertising for more men to nssist him
in filling his big contract with the
smeltor compnay. Over 200 barrels of
lime have already boon prepared and
a large additional quantity will be
needed. Before long large foroes of
meu will be needfld in the ^nrions departments of construction and all kinds
of laborers are iu demand here just at
present.
While it hns not been definitely
nnnonnced, still it is well understood
here thnt the smelter oompnny has
purchased the Simpson sawmill, about
three miles above town, nnd will saw
most of its own lumber. A large
planing plnnt bas been ordered from
Rossland nnd the company intends doing its own work in this line also.
