In The Tribune this morning Mayor
Houston says:
j&'.'It (The.Miner) tries to create the
v.. Impression that the insurance agcnta
and the business men are alarmed because the Mayor has suspended u. man
from a certain position. No such
';"(tat_ of feeling cxiBts, either among
insurance agents or business men.
The men who manage the big business houses on Haker Street have urg-
_-,^the Muyor to stand his giound in
the tight that he is making; and if
the views of tho men who do the tire
Insurance in Nelson were published,
the nldeiraen and their newspaper organ would feel a trifle ashamed of
themselves."
The Miner this   morning interview-
by actual count, 26 business  men,
i who havo   stores  and   offices   on
ker Street.    Twenty-three   of these
.en   expressed   themselves    as   boing
Rpry much   opposed   to   the   action of
Mayor Houston, one   thought that the
.City'should   have a   paid   department
but   eliil   uot   quite agree with Mayor
Houston's methods of doing   business.
Two thought that tho Mayor had act-
ed   in a proper manner.    The twenty-
three   tlrst   mentioned   did   not think
the time had   yet arrived   for   a   paid
department   and expressed the   belief
that Nelson was fortunate in the possession of un efficient lire department.
The Are Insurance mon, without cx-
ption, were   emphatic in their   dls-
iprovnl of the Mayor's   action. They
ere unanimous   in the opinion   that
e Mayor by his   radical  action   was
olng much   to injuro  the City,   from
insurance   standpoint.    And   still
it Worship   concludes   his article ot
is morning with these words:
���Mayor Houston   has the people bo-
���hlnd him in this   light,   and   ho  will
��� win."
I   There Ib a feeling in some quarters,
now that thu Are protection question
���is to the front, that there should he
Plnstalled in Nelson next spring a fire
���alarm system. With tne present fire
���brigade and a complete electric alarm
Kaystcm Insurance men believe that
'ljelson would lie second to none in the
��� batter of fire protection in towns of
.'Its size in the l'rovince. Three thou-
' aand   dollars   so   expended,   with   the
present fire brigade, would be mneh
Hntter.insurancu men Bay, than a paid
department without tlio complete
���larm system. It has been suggestcs
that i-u ii I iii;.;,-, for aldermen next
January be asked to state their respective positions In regard to an expend-
��� Hure for the above purpose.
. Mayor Houston has called a special
ipeoting of tho Council for next Monday afternoon to consider the matter
of a fire Chief. If the aldormen don't
change their minds in thu meantime
Chief Thompson will bo reinstated.
(On Tuesday morning Mayor Houston
���will probably again suspend Thompson. He lias power to do so just as often as he wishes. Ilul he cannot np-
point a successor. That rests In the
hands of the Council alone, (leorgc
Wgelow, it appears, was not fire chief
for tho I'i'iis.iii that his appointment
waa made without authority. The
Mayor can mako no appointments of
any nature, lle can,however, dismiss
any official of tho City at nny time,
for the act reads that Such persons
shall hold office only "during tlie
pleasure of tlje Council or Muyor."
M'BRIDE TN KOSSLAND.
Confers Willi Chamber of Mines and
Hfthrd nf Trade.
Borland, li. C., Nov. 29.��� Hon.
Kichnrd Mcllrlde, Provincial Minister
of 'Mines, arrived ben- yesterday nnd
Inst evening held n conference with a
large deputation composed of meinbei 1
of lira Hoard of Trade and the Chain
bor of Mines. Thee deputation discussed with Mr. Mnllrldn a number of
questions of grcnt Importance tu tills
dlbtrct.   Among these was that of the
school of mines; the wagon road to
Sophie Mountain; representation at
on; the office of
L*J_ J.UU_U%W -��.idon and the important matter of simplifying tho
mining laws. Mr. Mcllride's replies
to the representations of the deputation were on the whole very satisfactory and appreciative of tbo needs of
the distriot. He promised that any
mining legislation which Is brought,
in or any amendments to the present
laws would not bo of a radical character, but that as far as possible legislation would be conducted on the general lines at present in operation. Especially, he said, any change in the
matter of taxation of mineral would
be towards a reduction and not an increase. If Mr. McBride is allowed to
carry out his intentions as expressed
to the deputation, he will certainly
meet tbe views of the people here and
help tbe district.

tbe accused and Mrs. Maltby and
Doctors Ernest Hall and Fagan, placed the blame for the death of the
child upon Brooks and Maltby; but

warrants to be issued for the arrest of
the two men.

Montreal Chamber of Commerce Opposed to a Canadian Mint.
Montreal, Nov. 29.���La Chambre de

used was hitherto the property of the
Queen's Own regiment, but now goes

FIGHTING NOW
NEAR PRETORIA
Two Very Sharp Fights Took
Place  Near That
City.
Boers Defeated but Fought
With  the  Utmost
Vigor.
Pretoria, Nov. 29.���Colonels Hickman and Plumer have arrived here.
During Oeneral French's operations
at Klip Riversburg, their columns
captured three wagons loaded with
provisions that were identified as being part of the supplies that were
distributed by the British for the relief of the.Boer inhabitants of of Johannesburg.
The authorities in recognition of
the services of Lumsden's Horse are
paying their passage on their return
to India. This contingent equipped
themselves at their oivn expense and
paid their own passage from India to
Sonth Africa.
General Smith-Dorien's column has
returned to Belfast after a five days
march from Bullstroom. They had
only one casualty.
On their return journey the Canadians, while Scouting, rode close to the
ambush prepared by the Boers.
Realizing their position they sprang
from their horses, turned them loose
and sent them galloping buck to the
column. They then sought cover on a
slight ridge and poured a hot nnd accurate firo into the Boers, killing several of them. They held their posi-
ttlon until the column of infantry arrived and did not sustain a single casualty.
A force, of Boers attacked Balmoral
yesterday. Colonel Backhouse, with
four companies of the Huffs, and one
howitzer, defended the place. The
Boers' p'.an was to tako tour commandoes and make a simultaneous attack on all sides. Fortunately for the
British only three commandoes arrived in time to take part in the attack.
The howitzer did splendid work.
The British lost six men killed and
nine wounded. Thirty of the Buffs
were captured, but were subsequently
released. The Boers lost heavily and
sent out two burial parties after the
fighting. The British took a number
of prisoners and brought In many
wounded,several of whom subsequently died.
Simultaneously with this attack a
commando of liuo Boers with one gun
attacked Wilger Kiver, which was
held Dy two companies of the Royal
Fusileers. The fighting lasted for
eight hours. Ultimately tbe Boers retired with ; considerable loss. The
British loss was one wounded. The
garrison at Bronkpoorst Spruit sent
two guns to relieve the Fusileers. As
the men retired a shell was Bent
among the Boers on a kopje killing
or wounding thirteen of them. The
commandoes which made these attacks
wore under Generals Villejos, Tricurl
and Pretorius. The enemy fought
nt cloBe quarters and with the utmost.
determination. All the garrisons have
been Btrongly reinforced. The places
atacked are all within a Bhort distance of iaeh other on the railway to
the east of Pretotla. The railway has
beon torn up in several places, but is
now being repaired.
PILCHER HAS SKIRMISH.
Comes   to   Close   Quarters   With   the
Boors  Under Dewet.
Cape Town, Nov. SO.���General Kno\
by a rapid march of 2(1 railcB, sueeeei'-
ed in getting in fiont ot General Dewet, placing himself between the
Boors and the Orange River. Dewet
is now believed to bo going westward
to join Heitzog at llloomplnntss. Colonel I'llcher had a smart skirmish
Tuesday, Nov. 27 with part of General Dewet's command, which was
conveying loot captured at Dowets-
dorp. The Boers retreated, abandoning a portion of the loot and a large'
number of horses. Former President
Steyn and General Dewet were in close
proximity to the scone of the lighting, but they eluded the British. The
lloerB were so tenatsious that Colliljol
l'llcher's men actually reached a position within thirty yards of them,
where revolver short were exchanged.
The Boers shelled the British with
fifteen pounders captured at Dewets-
dorp. Ex-President Steyn and General
Dewet, who were breakfasting at a
farm nearby,rode off to the westward,
leaving.the British front clear. The
British casualties were one man killed and six wounded. Several Boers
who had been wounded were found by
the British. Steyn and Dewet have
since been reported to be encamped to
the eastward, between Uelvia and
the railroad,but the command appears
to have broken up into three bodies.
District Commissioner Boyle, of Dew-
etsdorp, remains in the custody of the
Burghers. Many farmers in tho district have 'joined General Dewet.
NEED MOUNTED TROOPS.
British Army in Africa Hampered For
. Want of Mounted Troops.
Edinburgh, Orange River Colony,
Nov. 20.���The Boera are most active
between the railroad and Basutoland,
south of Ladybrand, Thaba N'chu and
Bloeinfoiitein. General Dewet and
former President Steyn are near Dew-
etsdorp. It is believed they are preparing for a descent on Cape Colony
for recruits and supplies. As a counter move, two battalions of the
Guards, Grenadiers and First Cold-
streams, hold ull the forts of the
Orange River from Aliwal North to
the Orange River station. But small
parties of mounted BoerB are able to
cross the river almost anywhere. The
British have great need of more
mounted troops, the capture of Dewet
being hopeless without them.
STILL PRAISING   CANADIANS.
London Times Makes Further Eulogistic ReiuarkB About Them.
London, Nov. 29.���The delay of the
steamer Hawarden Castle, owing to
galea,occasioned much disappointment
in London today. The Canadians and
other war heroes, therefore,do not expect to reach London till noon tomorrow. It is hoped that the wcathor will
be less damp nml depress! <g.
A special performance of J. M.
Ilarrie's^ "Wedding Guest" wns arranged for tonight in thoir honor.
The.Times today make an eulogistic
survey of Canadian achievements during the wai and concludes: "Throughout tho campaign the Canucks whether
as gunners, troopers or infantrymen,
proved themselves to be brave, trustworthy soldiers in the face of the enemy. They have never lacked any of
those qualities which marked contingents from- other colonies, but one
misses in them the impatient recklessness of the Australians and uncertain
temper of the African bred Colonial.
Canada may well bo proud of their
behavior alike in the field and camp."
CANADIANS   WELCOMED.
Two Detachments of Veterans Are
Now in England.
London, Nov. 29.���A detachment of
2IK1 men belonging to the Royal Canadian Regiment, Colonel Otter commanding, which have just reached

greeted everywhere with applause.
General Stewart made tt brief speech
to the Canadians, during which ho
Naid Englishmen rejoiced over the
honors achieved by the home troops
and their kiiiHinon Irom all the Colonies brought together by the war. Colonel Otter expressed his thanks for
the sympathetic utterances and the
Canadians took the train for   London.
Liverpool, Nov. 29.���Tho Lord Mayor entertained another contingent of
homeward hound Canadian troops to
day at the town ball. A dramatic
feature of the entertainment wns the

New York, Nov. 29.���It is reported
here from Pekin that the Germans
have boarded a Chinese vessel and
demanded treasure consigned to an
English company ut Tien Tsin. As

money had been landed before tho
seizure of tho vessel.
WANTS HARMONIOUS  AtTION.
Germany Does Not Wish to Clash With
Powers us to Punishment of Chinese.
Berlin, Nov. 29.���The soml-olllcial
Berliner Post in the course of an evidently Inspired article replying to tho
suggestions of more lenient punishments of tlie guilty officials In China
made by tho United Statos Government, says: "Since doubts have beon
expressed hero nnd there as to whether It is ndvisable to insist upon death
for the ringleaders of the anti-foreign
movement bh an lrievoeablv decision,
it should be pointed out that such
doubts cannot be traced to considerations of humanity, as If somo Power
regards such a punishment ns too
seroru. The fact. Is rather that all
tho Powors aro convinced that the
ringleaders deserve death but tho
question has been raised on various
sides ns to whether suoh a measure
shonld be insist,el ppon from the
standpoint of political experience. So
far as Germany Is concerned, she hns
never insisted upon the execution of
specific persons, but has repeatedly
declared that sho laid chief emphasis
on the harmonious action of all the
Powers In punishing the guilty.
This attitude corresponds with the
guiding principle of Germany's policy
whloh seeks above all else to preserve
tho harmony of the Powers.'
WALDERSEE PLEASED.
Berlin, Nuv. 29.���Tlio War OfflM
hero received the following from
Count Von Waldcrsee, dated Pekin,

tion.
THE LATEST MOVE.
The Wily Turk Will Purchase CruUer
From U. S. at a Premium.
Constantinople, Nov. 29.���Tho arrival of tbe United States battleship
Kentucky at Smyrna has so shaken
up the Palace Porto that evidences
are accumulating of a desire to hab-
ten a settlement to the satisfaction of
the United States and to Issue an irado
calling for the purchase of a cruiser
at Philadelphia, the price for which
is to include the 890,000 aaked as an
Armenian indemnity. This is regarded as a subterfuge designed for local
consumption In order to save the face
of the Porte. Nevertheless it is now
believed that Turkey will find tho
money and place an order for a cruiser in the hope of propitiating the
United States. Despite the dispute the
relations between the United States
aud the Porta continue cordial.

THE   THINKING     WORKINGMAN.
A paragraph in The Rossland Record says in effect that those Labor
leaders who undertook to hand over
the Laboi vote to Mr. Foley will not
be able to fulfill their engagement
This means in plainer words that Mr
Foley will not get the solid Labor
vote. It would be distinctly credit
able to the workingmen of tbe constituency if this should prove true.
Pride of class will drive many of them
into tbe support of the Labor candidate, even against their better judg
ment, and we do uot know that they
should blamed for it. The leaders
who met in convention in Nelson
were representative men, duly and
properly accredited. They resolved
after much deliberation to nominate a
candidate in the interest of the Un
ions, and Mr. Foley was the choice of
the majority. Workingmen who put
their dependence in or pin their faith
upon the Unions may, therefore, be
reasonably expected to support their
nominee. To that extent the Labor
leaders who persuaded Mr. Foley to
undertake the serious responsibility
of becoming a candidate may be able
to deliver the goods for which they
bargained.
But worlkngmen who persist in the
old habit of thinking for themselves
will not be so ready to submit to the
operation of the machine. There is
nothing occurring at Ottawa,or likely
to occur in the next five years, to render it necessary to send from Ysle
Cariboo a member of a restricted, a
not wholly unprejudiced, and a somewhat too exacting class. It will be
better for the constituency to send as
our representative a man who can
speak for all classes, and who is free
enough from prejudices to reoognise
their rights and uphold them. We
think it Is quite safe at this stage to
put Mr. Galliher aside; he is already
beaten, and the contest now is between Mr. McKane and Mr. Foley.
What is there in the political or industrial situation of the whole Do
minion, or of this particular portion
of it, that would require the thinking
workingman who feels himself free
to make a choico of Mr. Foley against
Mr. McKane? There is absolutely
nothing to suggest such a necessity.
There is nothing the thinking workingman oan require or expect which
���he would not get as readily from the
Conservative as from tbe Labor candl
date.
But on the other hand thero are
many things the Conservative oandidate could do, if elected, and which
the thinking workingman has as much
reason to desire as the rest of the
community, which would be beyond
the power of an isolated member,
with bis mark of exclusiveness. It is
only necessary to refer to one of them
Tho next five yoars will be big with
consequences to ninny interests in this
oountry, but to none should they re
suit more advantageously than to tbe
mining industry of British Columbia.
That industry ean bo immensely advanced at Ottawa. If the thinking
workingman will but contrast the
two men for a moment', If he will put
Mr. McKunu, with his knowledge and
iniluenee and energy and mental
grasp, against the man with the one
idea, bo will see at once what this
constituency stands to gain by elect
ing the candidate of a great political
party. Mi. McKane has intelligence
nnd great earnestness; he is eminently
a fighter; tho mining industry in this
Province demands Parliamentary at
tention, and Mr. McKane can do more
in one hour to secure it than cquld
Mr. Foley In an entire session. It is
for this reason that tho thinking
workingman will put asldo his class
prejudice and cast his vote for tho
general good, knowing that what Is
best for It is best for himsolf.
For a delegate to a Conservative
convention, Mr. Houston Is extraordinarily nnxlotis to save Mr. Galllher
from the unpleasant consequences of
tho exposure In connection with his
signature to that petition. He betrays not the least concern over the
'set that Mr. Oalllher denied having
signed It, but Is greatly distressed
that he should be found ont. That is
very like Mr. Houston, and is the ex-
aot measure of his morality. Seeing
his friend exposed, he employs all his
ingenuity to aurround him and the
incident Itself with, as many excuses
as he oan invent. We oheerfully do
Mr. Galllher's leading friends in
Nelson the justice to believe that
they hold Mr. Houston in great contempt. But that gentleman In not to
be shaken off. The Liberals are In,
and there will be crumbs to gather,
therefore he Is deterlmned,even at the
cost of spurns and kicks, to hang on
to Mr. Galllher's coat talis, while
still keeping an eye on   Mr. McKane.
Tho Foley men aro aBked by The
Industrial World to poll their votes
for "independence, justice, and progress." These are fine qualities, and
demand support on all occasions.
There would be as splendid a stroke
for independence, however, in voting
for Mr. MoKane; as splendid also for
justice; while as for progress, we are
afraid there can be no doubt that Mr.
McKane's election would do incalculably more than Mr. Foley's. Material progress,. or prosperity, will not
be encouraged by sending a Labor
Union candidate to Parliament at this
time. It is because Of labor troubles
and the fear of them that British capital has been so shy of investment in
thia Province, and the election of Mr.
Foley, so far from .reassuring It,
would alarmingly increase its apprehensions. We have in this country
periodical epidemics of political insan
ity, but it is earnestly to be hoped
that on ithe present occasion the voters
of the Kootenays will not be insane
enough to increase tlie industrial un
rest by electing a Labor candidate to
Parliament. That would bo a notice
to capital that the labor element hold
the .field, . and intend to .make the
most of their advantage.
Mayor John Houston has always
claimed to be the one public man in
Nelson absolutely loyal to union labor
organisations. Yesterday Mr. Houston was waited upon by the Deputy
District Organiser of the International Typographical Union, who came to
this City for. the purpose of attempt
ing to Induce Mr. Houston to. make his
printing office a thoroughly union
office. For the first time since the
union was established In Kelson Mr.
Houston received ��� its representative
civilly. On former occasions he invariably refused to confer with members of the Typographical Union.
The Miner, since the organisation of
a Typographical Union in Nelson,
has been a union offlce. When differences have arisen they have been Bet
tied amicably by a conference attended by the management of the paper
and the representatives of. the union.
Some people may find in the above a
little food for thought.

Here Is a screed from The Vancou
ver World: "It is now MAXWELL,
the mint, cabinet representation, di
reot line of railway into the interior
from the coast, northern, modern,
up-to-date transportation facilities
an all Canadian railway line into the
Yukon, a full dinner pail, your wallet well filled with gold coin, abun
dance of work, at the best rateof
wages, and prosperous times gener
ally." What fools the electors must
be, if they are expected to be taken
in by such trash as this. The Govern
ment organs make similar claims in
behalf of their oandidate in Yale-
Cariboo. The Industrial World is
not far behind in its reasons for the
election of Mr. Foley. ��� Mr. McKane
single-handed oan accomplish none
of these marvels, and his friends are
not idiotic enough to claim that he
can ; hut his election would prevent
an enormous amount of mischief, and
that is a good, solid reason why ho
should be returned.

FIRST ANNUAL   SUPPER.
Nelson   Carpenter's   Union    Enjoy   a
Banquol Last Night.
The completion of the first year of
the organisation of the Nelson Carpenter's Union was fittingly celebrated by a supper at the Victoria Hotel
last night. The guests of the evening
were tho lending contractors, of the
City.who were entortained by the Union as an evidence "of the good will
that has always prevailed between the
two important factors in the building and construction lino.
An excellent supper was provided by
Mr. McCandlish, of which about sixty
njembers and guests partook. The
chair was occupied by Mr. Robert
Robinson, president of Nelson Union
No. 524, who ably fulfilled the duties
of toastmaster. Messrs. Charles Ilill-
yer and L. W. Kribs responded to the
toast of "Our Guests" and made felicitous speeches; most especially did
they teBtify to the spirit of cordial
egood will thnt has always existed between the Union and the contractors.
:Mr.Kribs gave an interesting description of a personal participation in the
organisation of the first Miners' Union in Nevada.
The toast "Our Union" was answered by Messrs.    Robert   Robinson   and
CharleB   Clayton   who   spoke   of    the
great progress made by the Union nnd
1 drew   attention   to   the  fact thnt  its
membership   had   increased over  two
1. hundred por cent, in   the   past   year.
Incidentally they paid the   local   con-
ji-Jtractors a tribute  as to the   harmoni-
i<ous relations that had always prevail-
kjed.    Messrs.   Lackey   and   Corson  responded to "Our American   Brothers"
Lin speeches   redolont   of  good fellowship.
LaBt but not least "Tho Ladies,"
that time honored toast, called forth
elever remarks from Messrs. John Toye
and George Rroadly. The evening
closed with the singing of the National Anthem, preceded by toats to the
Press and President of the loeal
unions.

LANGTRY GETS DAMAGES.
ter were among Secretary Hay's callers at the State Department today,
conditions in China being among the
subjects considered. Information has
been received from the southern viceroys, representing the most pacific
influences in China, showing great
concern on their part as to reports
that another punitive expedition is on
its way. This time it is against
Slums! l'rovince.
Mr. Justice Walkem Grants Him 810,-
000 in His Case'Against O'Connor.
Rossland, B. C, Nov. 29.���Mr. Justice Walkem in the Supreme Court
ycBterday awarded to James Langtry
$10,000 damages against M. O'Connor
of Grand Porks. The action arose
out of the assaulting of the plaintiff
by the defendant out at Sheep Creek
in September, 1805. Langtry xaa formerly a superintendent ou the Northern Pacfic and Union Pacific Railways
and a man of education and ability.
When Patsy Clark first came to this
omnp, he recommended Langtry to try
his luck here and Langtry resigned
.his position and came. Shortly after
his arrival he met O'Connor who had
properties to sell. In company with a
Couple of other mon he went out intending to look at them and If they
��� were as represented to buy them.
About 18 miles from Rossland the
party Btopped for the night at a cabin. During tho ovoning O'Connor,
who had been drinking heavily, developed homocidal mania and assaulted Langtry with an axe, crushing in
his skull and most horribly mutilat
ing him. Langtry was brought back
to. Rossland and for three months was
under the care of Dr. Bowes at his
private hospital. At the end of that
time he was taken by his friends to
the Medical Lake Insane Asylum and
after 18 month's residenco there was
discharged, penniless nnd destitute,
, and In Buch a condition physically
and, mentally that he ean never hope
for recovery. O'Connor was tried for
attempted murder and was found
guilty but the jury considered that ho
was not responsible- for what he had
/done, and be was confined In
tbe iiisam. asylum for a while, but
was released at the end of six months
and has since been in trouble for
shooting his mother and brother at
Grand Forks. He is now out on suspended sentence.
IN SOUTH AMERICA.
ISrazil May Soon Have a War on Her
Hands.
New York, Nov. 20.���A special to
The Herald from Rio Janeiro says
ollicinl information of a positive character bus confirmed the report that
Uruguay is about to sever friendly relations with Brazil. It is admitted
that the Governor at Montevideo had
intimated that he is about to hand his
passports to the Brazilian Minister.
The Cabinet has decided upon the
attitude of Uruguay, but in tho ab-
senae of definite action has not decided what course will bo pursued.
Ilolivia also is showing some feeling
against the alleged support given to
the Bepublic of Acre by the authorities of the State of Amazona.
Tho Bolivian Minister informed the
Minister of War that the Bolivian
troops have been hampered greatly
in their work of suppressing the rebellion because supplies have been
received by the insurgents through
Brazilian territory. Even with all
its soldiers and its friendship with
Peru, the Bolivian Government has
not been able to atop war supplies
from tho west. Its officers, who are
endeavoring to suppress the trouble,
report however that the rebels, many
of whom have come from the State of
Amazona, have no trouble in obtaining munitions by way of the Amazona
and Prurus Rivers. Brazil is asked
to take decisive measures in co-operation with Bolivia to end the rebellions.
PAPA    ZIMMERMAN     CHEERFUL.
Thinks He Will Like His Son-in-Law
the Duke   of Manchester.
New York, Nov. 20.���Eugene Zimmerman, whose daughter was married
to the Duke of Manchester a week or
so ago, was interviewed here today.
He said to a reporter:
"I have come here to meet my
daughter and her husband. After
thoy have rested here a few days we
will go to Cincinnati and a reception
will bo given at the home. The duke
is a bright chap. He looks like a fine
manly fellow. I like a man mho
went to work as he did as a newspaper man when he was hero. ��� Some of
his articles were first rate too. At
no time was I opposed to his marriage to my daughter. Those stories
are all moonshine."
"Is it true that the duke is in a
bad wny financially?" asked the reporter.
"I guess there will be no difficulty
about his assets. That does not make
any difference. I don't care to speak
about tho marriage portion. That is
n private matter. But there won't
be any trouble about any debts."
"Is it likely that the duke may settle down in America and enter tho
railroad business?"
"No, no; tho duke is going into
Hritish politics. He is entitled to a
scat in the House of Lords, aml'lie is
going to turn his attention to politics."

BUREAU OF   l'ISOVINi _AL INFORMATION.
In order that thu tlovernment may

am instructed to invite particulars
from those who have properties for
Huh', and who may feel disposed to
forward such particulars to this olliee
for the purpose iu question.
In view of the proposed early ro-or-
ganisation of the Agent General's
Olliee in London, England, the desirability of having on file a list of
farms and other properties for sale,
with full and accurate details, is obvious. Properties submitted may include farms and farm lands, industrial or commercial concerns, timber
limits, water powers, or other enterprises affording opportunities for legitimate investment.
It is not proposed to recommend

SOUTH EAST KOOTENAY.
A District of Great   Promise and Producing  Mines.
THE AUTHOR   OF A WARM BOOK.
Hallie Erminie Elves, the author of
the new sensational sex novel, "A
Furnace of Earth," is ono of the few
women living who holds a life pass
over an American railroad. She gained this distinction by nn aet of courage and heroism. Somo years ago,
when quite a young girl, Miss Hives
was traveling over the Monon route
from Chicago to Louisville, when the
train was wreoked. The eugineer,
David Pope by name, was burled beneath the debris of the baggage car,
hOrrtbly mangled, but conscious. III!
face was uncovered, hut his body was
pinned ilenvn by the burning wreckage. Ills Sufferings were su terrible
that several of the women passengers
fainted and the men turned sick. Miss
Hives alone knelt by him, bathing
liis face and cheering him whilo tho
trainmen workd desperately to release
him. No surgeon was on the train,
and Nhe herself.with towels and splinters.set his broken legs and accompanied the unconscious man in the relief
train to the hospital. I'opc afterward
recovered.
When the affair came to the oflicial
knowledge of the road the president
visited Miss Hives lo thank her personally and the directors voted her a
pusr for life upon that line.
Apropos of the large sale which "A
Fumade of Earth" is having in Eng"
lairi the following story is tolpi
Wfien the book was in press the
l'rinee of Wales, who hud met the authoress socially, sent his equerry to
Jjer London publislicr.Orunt Itlehurd.,
The Fort Steele Prospector has fre
quently called atention to the wonderful resources of South East Kootenay
It is beyond question that the
mineral resources of this particular
section cannot be excelled. Mineral
of all descriptions has been found.
The first exhibit sent to Spokane attracted universal attention and was
the means of bringing oapital into
the country. At that time, however,
East Kootenay had beon scarcely
heard of only as a memory of the
scene of a great gold excitement in
the early days of 1860-.5, and as being more remote than Halifax. The
conditions have e langed, the district
is easy of access, villein the past five
years mines in this seetion havo been
developed to a point where they are
shipping large quantities of orude ore
and concentrates. The St. Eugene
mine is now acknowledged to be the
largest producer of silver-lead ore on
the American continent. The North
Star has forged to the front, and the
Sullivan is taking a first rank among
the big producers. There are other
properties which bid fair to make as
good mines as these mentioned. Of
course the skeptical will say they are
not developed, this is true, neither
was the North Star or St. Eugene five
years ago There are a dozen properties within IS miles of Fort Steele
which are sure to attract attention,
the unfortunate part of it is that the
owners are financially unable to make
great headway with development, as
a consequence the progress of the
mines bus been retarded.
There is no bettor field in the entire Province where capital can be so
advantageously placed with a reason
able expectation of taking it out in a
short time. It will not be long befoie
the merits of East Kootenay as a mining country will be better known, and
when capitalists come in the district
will mako giant strides towards that
prosperity which our peoplo havo so
long looked for.

NEWS OF .
THE MINES I
DARDANELLES  MINES.
At a meeting of the Dardenelles
Mining and Milling Company, Ltd.,
with head offices at Victoria, held on
June SO last, it was resolved that the
directors of the company be empowered to borrow on behalf of tho company, on debentures, a sum not exceeding 845,000. The purpose for
which the money is required is: First,
to pay off all the indebtedness of the
company, which omounts to about
$11,000; second, to continue the development of the mino upon tho lines
advised by Captain Morris and also by
the manager.
It is intended to sink a bhaft to the
depth of about 000 feet, and then drift
on tho vein. This programme was
followed out and on the lowest level
drifting has been carried on several
hundred feet in each direction. During the drifting, ore of very good
grade was enoouutered.
In the ni'iinui of 1800, a syndicate
was formed, which purchased 200,000
shares of the company's stock at 12
cents, out of which money the debenture debts of the company were paid
to the amount of $75,000, additional
machinery procured and th. mine run
until the end of February, when the
company was compelled to shut down
on account of being disappointed in
the sale of a considerable block of
treasury stock. The directors have
made arrangements whereby all tho
debts owing by tho company have been
transferred to one man so that satisfactory arrangements for the opening
up of the mine again can be made.
The Dardanelles company was formed in December 1800, with a capital
stock of $1,000,000 in $1 shares. It
was incorporated in September 1800.
The officers are President Hon. Fred
Peters, Vice President Col. S. W. Roy,
Port Arthur; Secretary Wm. McGrier.
The other directors are Sir Charles
H. Tupper, J. J. Shallcross, Capt. C.
E. Clark, and J. T. L. Mycr.
The property consists of six claims
namely, Dardanelles, Diamond Cross,
Dardanelles No. 2, Okanogan, Lady of
tho Lake, Hosphorns, and Gibraltar,
They are situated in the Dardanelles
Basin, four miles from Sandon, three
miles by wagon road from McGuigan
station on the K. and S. Hailway in
Slocan District.
On the property about 4,000 feet of
development has beon dono, A shaft
has been sunk about 500 .feet. It is
stated by the company that previous
to 1800, 250J_ tons of first class ore
shipped to smelters returned an average of 205 oz.of silver and 20 per cent,
lead, and 00). tons of second class
ore returned 70 oz.of silter and 10 per
cent, lead to the ton. The plant at
tbe property consists of a 00-horse
power boiler, a 20 horse power hoist,
sinking pump; also a live drill Hand
compressor and two drills. These were
installed in August, 1897.

PRACTICAL PATRIOTISM.
ladies of Canada:
I nie-r min mil trade Is the true basis
of tho federation of the Empire. So
far as possible, one colony should
consume tho produce of another.
Canadians and India and Ceylon
ten planters fought side by side in Africa. About 10 per cent of tho latter volunteered for the war.
The Teas of Ceylon uud India are
the best and purest the world produces. Already the Black Teas of
those colonies have captured the Canadian market. The Green is now fast
displacing Japan's colored atticle.
Quality and sentiment unite to recommend it. Canadian ladies who drink
Japan tea should help the Hritish
planter by drinking Ceylon green tea,

Merchandise has its place in the Preparations for the Xmas Season.   The attractiveness
of the Goods to he found in all our Departments will make brisk selling for the next three weeks.   A.
Christmas Dolls.
Our new line of Dolls is now
on display. While the quality is
of the highest, the price is so
modestly low that you will be surprised at the size of the doll you
can get for a dollar or two.
Jointed Dolls, Kid-bodied Dolls,
new French-shape Dolls, Blond
Dolls, Brunette Dolls, 9 to 27
inches;  35c to$  8.50.
Silk Waists.
Nothing but the finest Taffeta,
Liberty Satins and Liberty Silks,
from $3.50 to $15.
Furs.
The great demand for Furs this
season was recognized by us very
early���in time to make selections
when they were at their best.
Whatever there is for ladies to
wear, made of Fur, will be found
in this department at very low
prices.
Handkerchiefs
You lose most of your handkerchiefs, the laundries wear out
the rest, and your handkerchief
case needs constant filling. We
have them from 5c to $7.50 each.
Winter Gloves
And Mittens in great variety.
The very latest style in Gloves is
the Suede, Castor and Mocha.
These Gloves are nice for cold
weather, as they are much warmer
than dressed kid. We carry these
lines in black, mole, tans and
greys, $1.50 to $2.00.
