Aldermen Beer and Fletcher
Have Warm Discussion.
BUSINESS TRANSACTED.
Cycliat By-law Passed ��� A Music Hall for
Kelson.���Eecord of Other
TranspiriDgB
A great d.ial of business was Rot
through at yesterday evening's meeting of the Council, at which several
little difference of opinion occurred,
ime of which seemed likely tntermnate
in iistiovifl's. It all anise in tho consideration in committee of the by-law
to close barber shops nn Sunday. Alderman Fletcher doubted the legal oor-
leotoeas of a ruling of Chairman Mc-
Killop, and in tbe discussion which
ensued he and Aid arm an Beer got into
a hot dispute, several unusual epithet
being bandied across the. Council table.
When the Council rose the quatrel
started again, bnt fortunately the
irate aldermen were sepnrated before
anything worse than words had tieen
exchanged.
When the Mayor called the Council
to order there were present Aldermen
Fletcher, Hillyer, Beer and MoKillop,
and the reports of the Finance and
Public Works committees were read
and adopted.
A communication from Mr. B.
[lodge, asking that the Cedar street
sewer be extended lift feet ho bs to enable him to mako connections was referred to the Public Works committee.
An application from J. B. Downs,
asking to be allowed the exclusive
right of all bill posting was filed, as
the Council was not in favor of monopolies.
Mr. R. H. Johnson asked to bo given the chimney sweeping franchise,
stating that he intended to olnrge $2 a
chimney. The Council refused to grant
any exclusive privilege, but the City
Clerk was instructed to inform the applicant thnt he could take out a license
as chimney sweep.
Mr. T. C. Duncan, secretary of the
tramway company, wrote asking the
use of the electric light poles on the
north side of Baker street on the terms
already stated iu The Miner. The
Council approved of the suggestion and
left the matter in the hands of the
Oity Engineer.
A letter wns read from the Game-
well Fire Alarm Company, of Han
Francisco, intimating their willingness to make an offer for the putting
in of fire alarms on the lease system,
providing thev were not entering upon
n ground already covered by their local
agents. The City Clerk was instructed to reply that no offer had been undo
to pot in fire alarms on the leaso system.
Mr.R.J.Hamilton,general merchant,
wrote asking a i$10 rebate ou his
license, It appeared that he had already paid a 1(50 licenso at Nakusp.
The Council was unable to grant the
request,
A letter was read from the Kootenay
Electrical Supply and Construction
Company, stating tho progress made in
the re-wiring of the electric light system, thnt they had expended $n,ooo on
their contract already, and asking for
a payment on aocount. It was generally felt that a substantial payment
should be made, and the matter was
refuted to the Finance Committee
with power to act.
A deputation of residents in the
neighborhood of Water street was present, and one of their number addressed
the Council, asking for a sinewalk on
Water street, between Hall and Park
stieets, Baying that the sheet in question was muddy and almost Impassable
and that it was the only way to their
homes without making a wide detour.
Aldermen Beer and Hillyct were in
favor of the request, the [latter corroborating tho statement made as to
the state ot the road. The Mayor
thought that the City's finances were
in Huch a state that absolutely no more
money should bo spent on such objects.
Alderman Boer was not bfraid to face I
a deficit incurred In such a manner. |
Eventually tho matter was referred to J
tho   Publio   Works   committee   with
power to act.
By-law No. 45, regulating bicycle
riding within the City limits, was
finally passed and adopted.
Aldernwin Boer introduced By-law
No 53, providing that the barber shops
be closed on Sundays. The by-law was
oppose* .by Aldermen Fletoher and
Hillyer.- but passed the first and second
readings,, by the casting vote of the
Mayor.
The same alderman introduced Bylaw No. 63, for the numbering of
houses. Ho said that it could bo done
very cheaply, and produced some specimen numbers which cost a cent apiece.
Alderman Fletcher thought that putting up street signs was, more important. Alderman Beer thought that
painted signs were no good, and wanted to know what permanent signs
would cost. Eventually it was decided
to let the by-law stand over, and the
City Engineer was instructed to get
out nn estimate of the cost of putting
up signs on Stanley and Josephine
streets at the intersections of the
streets.
By law No. 50 was introduced by
Alderman Beer, and was designed to
prevent tho sale of goods on the Sabbath. The by-law was opposed by Aldermen Fletcher and Hillyer, and received a six months' hoist by the help
of the casting vote of tho Mayor.
Alderman Hillyer then introduced
By-Law No.54, granting a new lioense
for n music hall. The alderman spoke
rather scathingly of the stand taken
by the daily papers in tho matter, and
insisted that he was not contemplating
any such place as the Comique at Kaslo
use.1 to be. The suggestion of a gym
uauinm was absurd. Men who had
worked hard all day did not want to
do gymnastics all night. The by-law
was read a first and second time, the
motion of Aldermen Beer and MoKillop
to give the by-law a six months' hoist
beinng lost by the casting vote of the
Mayor.
The Council thenwent iuto Oomrnit-
tee of the Whole of By-law Nn. 53 and
54, Alderman McKillop being votod to
the chair. Aldermen Hillyer and
Fletcher wanted the barber shops open
on Sunday from 8 to 10 a. m.. but Alderman Beer and the Mayor moved as
an amendment that the by-law
be reported complete. The voting was two to two, hut Chairman
McKillop voted for tho ninendracnt,
which he declared carried. Fletcher
disputed bis ruling, claiming that,
under the Municipal Clauses Act,
when the voting was equal the affirmative motion was lost. Tbe point
turns on the following clause, which
deals with voting in a committee of
the whole.
"In all cases when the votes of the
membersjof tbe Council present, in-,
eluding the Mayor or reeve, are equal
for or against a question, the question
shall be negatived, and it shall be the
duty Of the presiding member of tho
Council to so declare "
It was decided to refer the point to
the City Solicitor.
Alderman Hillyar's music ball bylaw was then reported complete. The
Council then came out of Committee
of the Whole.
Alderman McKillop wns appointed
Acting City Treasurer during the absence of Alderman Kirkpatrlok.
Joseph    Jrtokson     was    appointed
Weigbtmaster of the City scales    He
will take half   the   receipts  ns his re
muneration therefor.
The quarterly report of Fire Chief
Tompsou was read and nlnpted. A
noticeable feature wan that during that
lime there had been bnt two fires with
no damage done. On his recommendation Assistant Chief W. Peffer's salary
was raised from ISO to ffio a mouth.
Aldermen Tlillyer and McKillop were
appointed a Fire Committee.
Alderman Hillyer could not nnder-
stand why tho electrio light receipts
were so low, and the question of taxing iusuranco companies operating
here was also brought up, but it was
decided to postpone the disonssion of
these matters until the next Council
meeting, which will be held on Thursday afternoon next.
REFUGE WOMEN REVOLT.
OOM   PAUL  IS   DUBIOUS
Smash Furniture, Windows and Eleo-
trie Lights Promiscuously.
Hudson, N. Y., Oot. 9.-The three
hundred inmates of the Hudson Honso
of Refuge for Women began to raise an
uproar at midnight last night in the
several cottages, as though by preoon-
erted ariangements. From midnight
to daybreak their blasphemy aud tho
sound of breaking furnitur.i and glass
was heard distinctly on the streets of
Hudson. The few guards and the
matrons were unable to cope with tbe
rioters,and the Hudson police were telegraphed for. The women smashed
furniture aud windows, toro eleotric
wires from the walls and destroyed in
all  about five hundrod  dollars' worth
of property.

Fifth Birthday.
MEDIATION BY THE UNITED STATES,
The Idemnity Due for the Jamieson Raid not Likely to be
Paid in Case of War.���Burghers Still Concentrating at Sandspruit.���Already 13,000
London, Oct. 9.���The Duke of Devonshire, Lord President of the Council
of Ministers, speaking at Sheffield todav, slid that the deduotion made from
bis recent speech at Manchester regarding the Transvaal situation had
warned him that a member of the
Government could not be too careful.
'' Matters have become more critioal
dnriug the last few days," remarked
the Duke, "aud I trust this interval
for reflection may conduce to a pacific
settlement." His Grace added, however, that he was afraid the only hopeful sigu that the Government of the
South African Republic did not appear
inclined to precipitate any in ts of aggression upon British territory,suoh as
their preparations led the British
Government to anticipate as within
the possibilities. No doubt, tbe longer
such an attempt should be delayed, the
less would be the probability of even
a temporary success. "Although the
Government does not consider it
right," said His Grace, "to relax any
measures deemed nsoessary, and although preparations for the campaign
are still In progress, I thinks may s.ty
that tbe country may rest assured that
no irrevocable step will be taken until
the Transvaal has received and has
had full opportnnites to consider these
demands which the British Government considers necessary to protect the
rights of their fellow citizens, and to
safeguard British interests in South
Africa. In these cironmstances there
is a chance, perhaps only a remote
chance, that wiser counsels than have
hitherto prevailed, may assert themselves.
"I do not complain of the speeches of
the independent politicians,although it
may be doubted that such utterances
tend to peace; but a differmt kind of
responsibility rests upon those directly
connected witb the Government,
though I do not regret anything I said
ou a former oooasion, when dealing
with this question, yet the handle
which that speech has given to certain
irresponsible negotiators to open communication nn their own account has
warned me that at the present time a
moniber of the Government cannot be
too careful of what he says, and that
the wisest, thing, perhaps,is to abstain
even from good words. There is no
reason, in my opinion, to apprehend
that matters have assumed a more
critical turn, aud I trust that the interval for reflection may conduce to a
settlement wliich all the arguments
and persuasion hitherto employed
havo been unable to effect."
London, Oct. 9.���From tho continent
conies an unconfirmed report that preparations are being ruado f jr an organized attack upon he mines by the natives, and the destruction of the
plants.
Lift don, Oct. !��. ���A report is iu circulation of an organization uf a corps
of volunteers to aid the Burghers, bnt
it lacks confirmation.
Pretoria, Oct. 9.���President Kruger,
in tho course of an interview today,
said he regarded the situation as very
grave, and considered it very difficult
to predict coming events. The landing of British reinforcements in Natal,
he said, did not trouble him, as he hid
full faith in tho Almighty.
Mr. Krnger declared he knew nothing of the reported intention of Mr.
HotTraeyer, the Afrikander, and Mr.
J. Rose-Inncs, Under Secretary of Native Affairs in South Afrioa, to com-
to Pretoria, and that there was nothing further known regarding thu suge
gested arbitration by the United
States.
President Kruger will  celebrate the
seventy-fifth anniversary of  his birth
tomorrow.
Statu Secretary Reitz today said that
negotiaions were pending regarding
mediation by the United States, but
nothing was deoided.
Capetown, Oct. 9.���The Afrikander
Bund has decided to call a congress in
November. The members of the Bund
aro advised to refrain iu the meantime from taking any part in the local
meetings.
Advieess from Pretoria sav tbeJNeth-
erlands railway management assert
that over 800 carriages and the tracks
belonging to the Transvaal are now iu
the British colony.
According to advices, the Burghers
are still arriving at Sandspruit, and it
is estimated 18,000 are ooncentrated
there.
They are becoming very mnoh dissatisfied because of their inaotlvity and
heavy rains, and the bitter cold weather renders it very trying for both horses nnd men.
London, Oct. .��� Th,e Rerliu corre
spondent of The Dairy Mail reports a
conversation with two prominent delegates from Portugal, bound by a seoret
but formal offensive and defensive alliance with England not to interfere in
any wav with the Transvaal affnirs.and
that therefo'.e she will remain neutral.
London, Oct. 10.���Tbe Daily Chronicle this morning points out chat, although Mr. Chamberlain agreed to refer tbe matter to arbitration, the indemnity for the Jameson raid is still
unpaid, and is not likely to be paid if
war breaks ont between Great Britain
and tbe Transvaal.
London, Oct. 10.���The Daily Telegraph's Lady smith correspondent says
that a trustworthy Ooloniai farmer asserts that he saw a thousand armed
Boers out Sunday within the Natal
border, near Charlestown.
London, Oct. 9.���The absence of
news from South Afrioa appears to be
duo to a heavy block on the telegraph
lines, which may mean that the lines
nre occupied with official despatches,
and that telegrams are being actively
exchanged iu negotiations At Durbau,
it is said, messages will not be accepted in code for any place in South
Africa. No more gold will bo permitted to leave the country.
London, Oct. 10.-The Daily Mail
publishes this morning the report of an
interview with Mr. Milford, in whioh
ho predicts that victory will be only
nbtaiued by the British, after a long
and costly war. He says the Roeri
will fight with the devils. Tbe Jameson raid roused them, and ever siuce
they havo besn preparing for war and
practicing shooting, and will resist to
the end.
"I do not believe tho Boers will incite tbe natives against England,"
said be, "but it is impossible to say
what the natives will do.
NEW RUEES.
The
Bay
Yacht*  Will   Race   Evory
After Thursday.
New York, Oot. 9.���By a mutual
agreement between tbe representatives
of the New York Yaoht Club and the
Royal Ulster Yaoht Club tbe Columbia
and the Shamrock will sail every day
after next Thursday until the question
of international yachting supremacy is
established. The request for suoh an
agreement came from Sir Thomnii Lipton, owner of the challenger. Sir
Thomas wanted tho races to be sailed
daily after next Tuesday, but the
members of the New York Yaoht Club
refused to usseot to such an agreement.
The meeting at which the agreement
for a change in the dates was reached
was held at the New York Yacht Club
today. There wero present R. S. Harmon, Crawford and H. MoGill Downey, representing the Royal Ulster
Yacht Club, and Louis C. Ledyard, J.
V. S. Oddie, F. W. Hurst, Edward M.
Brown and F. H. Lippitt, representing the New York Yacht Club. At
the conclusion of the meeting tho following agreement was drawn up and
fciven out for publication.
"The foregoing agreement (the challenge agreement) is further modified
by mutual consent as follows: Strike
out the clause beginning: 'Tho first
race shall be sailed ou Tuesday, October 8, 1899,' and substitute the following: 'The raoas shall be sailed on tho
following dates uutil the series be
completed, viz: Oat. 10, 1899, Oct. 13,
and on each following day except Sunday; provided, however, thnt immediately on the conclusion of tho race on
October 13 and of the subsequent race
the regatta committee shall inquire of
each contestant whether he is willing
to start the next day ; and should either
contestant answer in the negative, one
day shall intervene before starting the
next race. Sunday shall not count as
such intervening day.' "
The agreement was signed by the
representatives of both yacht clubs interested.
At tho conclusion of the meeting
Secretary Oddie said: "Incase the
boats sail ou the dav following a race
the committee boat will display the International code letter 'L' of blue and
yellow squares. If tliere is to be no
race the letter 'M,' blue with diagonal
white stripes, will bo displayed from
the committee boat. There was nn
friction in reaching the agreement as
to the change of dates. Sir Thomas
Lipton at first asked that the races be
started daily after Tuesday. Tho club
deoided that 'his would be hardly prudent. In tbe first place it would be
entirely unfair to the public. Thousands of persons have made arrangements to attend the races on a oertain
day. Hundreds of excursions have
been arranged for, and to make a
change in the raoing dates on so short
a notice would not be right to the publio. The olub is deeply grateful fcr
the manner in which tbe public has
been acting at the races. There has
been no interference with the boats
whatever. The olub is grateful to the
public for this, and it wauld not be
right to make suoh a sudden chauge in
racing days. We are endeavoring to
please the public as well ns the visitors. ''
PRESIDED .^IILBT
AMERICANS ADVANCING.
Manila, Oct. 9.���Gen. Schwan's column, conisting of the Thirteenth infantry, a battalion of the Fourteenth

Two Distinguished Men at
the Same Table.
BOTH MAKE SPEECHES.
Canada's Prims Minister Highly Honored
at Chicago ���Cordial Expressions
of Good Will.
Chicago, Oct. 9.���Chicago's great
Auditorium ppver held a greater gathering than when Chicago Day banquet
was held within its walls under the
ampices of the fall festival committee
The great stage, upon which 1,000 can
esaily find standing room, had been
enlarged and a floor built ont over tho
seats of the parquet, quadrupling the
floor space of the stage. Back of the
raised tahle at tbe west of tbe hall, at
which President MoKinley and the
guests of honor worn seated, wns an
elaborate peach arch, twenty feet in
height, constructed of pastry. It was
decorated with flags tastefully draped,
from the folds of Which hundreds
of little electric lights twinkled, On
both sides of the arch were shields
with paintinps of the American eagle
and groupings of American, British
and Mexican flags. The balconies
were resplendent with banners and the
coats of arms if all the states in the
Union. The President, who was the
guest of honor,sat at a raise 1 table on
the right of Melville E. Stone, the
toaBt master. Another distinguished
guest at the same table was Premier
Wilfred Laurier, of Canada. The opening hour of the banquet was set for
o'clock, but it was nearly an hour
later when thu banquet was in full
blast. It was nearly 10 o'clock when
Mr. Stone rapped for order and brought
the intellectual portion of the pro-
gramme to the front.
Governor Tanner, iu a short address,
welcomed the visitors on bonalf of tho
State of Illinois. After he had concluded, Mayor Carter Harrison, of
Chicago, and Senator Oullom, of Illinois, were introduced in succession by
Mr. Stone, the former extending to the
visitors tbe welcome of the people of
the City of Chicago, and the latter ou
behalf of the officials of the State. The
banquet guests knew by their pro
gramme who came next ou the list of
speakers, ami when the toastmsater
rose to introduce the President, who
responded to the sentiment of "The
Nation," he was greeted with cheers
that for a time prevented bis voice
from being heard. The President's
address was as follows:
"I am glad to join you in extending
a sincere welcome to the distinguished
Statesmen nnd diploma's representing
tho great countries adjoining us on the
north and south. We are bound to
them both by ties of mutual good
neighborhood, We rejoice m their
prosperity, and we wi��h them Cod
speed in the pathway they are so energetically and successfully pursuing."
Following the address of the President, which was received with every
manifestation of enthusiasm, Mr.
Stone Introduced Sir Wilfred Lauiicr,
of Canada, saying: "The next toast
is 'The Dominion of Canada,' to be responded to by the eminent Premier,
Sir Wilfred Laurier. " The bnmi played "God Save the Queen, " tho audience joining in the chorus. Premier
Laurier spoke as follows :
"1 very fully and very cordially appreciate the very kind feeling which
has just been uttered by the toastmas-
t">r in terms so eloquent,nnd which you
gentlemen have approved in so sympathetic a manner. Let mo say at ouce,
io the name of my fellow Canadians
who are here with mo, and also I may
say, in the name of Canada, that these
feelings will at all times be reciprocated, not only in words, but in actual,
liviug deeds. (Applause.) I take it to
be an evidenco of the good relations
which, in your estimation, gentlemen,
ought to prevail between two such
countries as the Unitod States and
Canado. That you havo notified us.
your next-door neighbors, in this dav
of rejoicings, to take our share with
you of your joy, we shall bring back
to our own country tho  most  plemant

With   rather delightful sarcasm The
Sandon   Mining   Review  says:   "We
have too much capital  in mines in the
country, nnd  every   precaution should
be taken to see that another dollar was
never  turned  this way.    All that the
country   wants  in the fnture is a few
thousand   miners   at  $8.50   per  eight
hours, and   nothing  for  them to dn."
And what it  wants it stands an excellent chance of getting, unless the men
take a more  reasonable   "lew  of  the
situation.    Their  leaders say they arc
holding out  for a principle.    Can any
one tell us what the prinoiple is? They
worked for years ten lours a day for a
wage of f!S.50,and were perfectly satisfied   with   it.    There  wero   no   complaints. If they had thought tbey were
beiDg underpaid they would   not have
waited   all   ttiis   time  to say so.    As
there were no  complaints, we are justified in concluding that the wage was
satisfactory, and it was satisfactory because it was regarded as  sufficient pay
for ten  hours   work.    How, then, can
they   ask   the   san e   wage   for eight
hours'   If  the pay was enough before,
what  they  demand  now  must be too
much.    Is  that  the prinicple they are
contending for?   Either   they are very
simple   and   allowed   themselves    for
years   to   be   imposed   upon   without
knowing it, or   thev   are unreasonable
now. There is no escape from this conclusion.    But it is not the men. If left
to themselves  they would   soon admit
that   if  they want  an eight-hour day
they must be content with   eight-hour
pay.   It is the leaders, the professional
agitators, who   live   by   and   through
labor disturbances.    They have  joined
hands witb tho charlatan politicians to
keep  up  an   agitation, and meantime
the men may kick  their  heels in idleness.
Mr. James Martin, tin   putative author of   the Eight-How amendment,
is reported to have said to a Sandon
Oitiznn visiting Rossland : "I seethe
miners up your way are cutting up
considerable trouble���they are agitating for an increase of pay under the
Eight-Hour law, while they are representing that the owners aie endeavoring to reduce wages. That will nevei
do. Tho hand drillers all down this
way arc taking $3.00 a day, and if
they do not; take it in the Slocan some
change will have to be made in the
law to meet the circumstances." Mr.
Martin is a politician, nnd may possibly feel obliged to repudiate this ; but
there is little doubt he said it. It is
hoped the time is near at hand when
the miners will recognise that they
have been allowing themselves to be
put in a false position. And when that
day comes the trade uf the labor agitator will not be as popular as it is
now.

The Rossland Miner expresses the
fear that the introduction of party
lines in Provincial politics would be
followed by a partisan Civil Service.
It mentions this in support of its objection to the risolution of the Conservative convention at New Westminster. We would fain hope the event
wonld entirely discredit our contemporary's apprehension, Why party government should involve a partisan Civil Serivce in this Province more than
in any of the others is not obvious.
Tbe appreciation of a permanent service is as strong here as elsewhere, aud
the electors have all tho spirit that is
necessary to see that their wishes in
the matter should be respected.

The following is taken from the report of an interview with Sir Henri

"Asked if it were true, as reported,
that he intended to establish anew Inland Revenue Division at Rossland,
Sir Henri said he had thought that it
would be necessary to do so, but on

ness,aud consequently no change would

troops from two or   three of  the Australasian   group   are  moving towards
the Transvaal.   Canada as yet has done
nothing.    There  appears  to be a good
deal  of  oonfusion   as   to  what can or
may or ought to be done.    The Military Gazette intimates that the  authorities at Ottawa   have  about   completed
preparations for  dispatching a contingent; but simultaneously with this announcement appears an interview with
Premier Laurier, in   which   that gentleman takes the ground that Canadian
militia are for the defeuco of  Canada,
and   that   there  ie  no  power conferred   by the   Militia Act  to order their
nse for any  other  purpose.    In a war
with   Spain, he s<ys, they   might   be
sent   to  that   conutry,   for  attack   is
often the best defence;   but there is no
menace to Canada   in a  war  with the
Transvaal, therefore it wou'.d be irreg-
nlar to contribute troops.   Side hy side
with   this  interview   in   The Toronto
Globe is a London  oahle to   the  effect
that Mr. Chamberlain is   telegraphing
his grateful acceptance of the offer of a
Canadian   contingent   for   service

According to the dispatches, the Premier of  Manitoba  bas announced that
tho Provincial eleotions, regnlarly due
some time this year, will  not  be held
nntil   next  spring.    This  is   taken to
mean that Mr. Greenway   is   afraid of
defeat.    And   well   ho   may be.    The
Opposition   is  developing   wonderful
strength   under  the leadership of  Mr.
Hugh J. Macdonnld,   Mr. Greenway is
a cautious man, who  can   gauge   the
popular sentiment as accurately as any
other in Manitoba;   if he scents  danger, he will   he in no hurry to face it.
Tberc  is  also  an impression that the
postponement   to the   extreme limit it
partly   to   allow the  Laurier Government to come in ahead.    A dissolution
at  Ottawa isj regarded as  imminent,
for there is fear of Manitoba, and fear
also of   Ontario.    If  tne  elections  in
those Provinces were  brought on first,
aud   the   Liberals   suffered   defeat  in
both, as they probably wonld, th) outlook   for   tbe   Dominion   Government

ENTIRELY CLOSED
Tflb' MINES OF SLOOAN SHUT DOWN
INDEFINITELY,
Mr- J. H- Harris of fc'andon Owner of the
Keco Mine on His Way to Visit
tlie East.
Mr. J. H. Harris, of Sandon, and
Iris brother Mr. G.B. Harris, of Washington, D. 0., arrived in Nolson yes-
terrltiy from Bnndon, and leave this
morning for Spoknne to take in the
Suokane Exposition. Mr. Harris was
seen nt the Hotel Pliair and askert
nliout the mining situation by a Miner
representative. He said: "There is
very little I care to sny about the matter, but one thing is assured, that all
ot the mines of the Slocan country nre
closed down until this labor question
is entirely settled. Tho business men
of Sandon have been almost to a unit
against the Mine Owners iu this fight
It is possible that their sentiment may
change. Tho Slocan country will un-
rionbtodly be dead iu a business way
this coming winter."
Mr. Harris and his brother will see
Spoknni for awhile, when Mr. Harris
will return to Sandon for n few days
and then return to Spokane, where he
aud Mr. G. B. Harris will leave for
Eastern points,visiting Salt Lake City,
Denver, Ohicnao. Nev. York, Washington D. C., and tho old home in Virginia, which is Mr. Harris' native
heath.
Mr. Harris is known in this country
as the founder of Sandon, owning tho
famous Reco mine there, besides the
electric light plant, the water works
aud a great innny of the buildings in
tbe camp.
Mr. G. B. Harris is paying bis first
visit to this country, and is very much
impressed with it. While everything
he bai seen is in a measure strange to
him, he s.iiri that he could readily ap
preciate the wonderful advantages
which this country possessed. He may
return nnd make some investments in
the rich mining district which he has
visited.

to a Minor reporter as astounded at the
progress made hy Nelson iu recent
years. He said he bad had experience
of Oalifornia boom towns, bnt he never
saw anything to equal the rapid nnd
substantial way this town is Leing
built up.
A Nelson business man who has
seen tho Spokane Industrial Exposition
describes tho whole thing as a frost.
The exhibits are contained in three
touts, aud, with the exception of the
B. C. mineral collection, nre not
worth seeing, The gentleman in question concluded by saying that it could

1 kid ascension would take place at Nelson. The date set wns last Wednesday

children persuaded their teachers to freo
them for a portion of the afternoon,
but this was not all. Mr. Youge also
induced the C. P. R. Company to sell
naif rate tickets to and from the City
on that and the preceding date. The
balloon and its attendant aeronaut and
advance agent never showed up. Everybody was fooled.

Mates, the special envoy sent by President Aurado to the insurgent commander, General Cipriano Castro, has
returned here. He reports bnving had
a prolonged interview with General
Castro, and he has assured United
States Minister Loomis that there is
no danger of further hostilities unless
new and unexpected complications
arise. President Anrade, it is rumored, will resigu, allowing the peaceful
election of General Castro to the presidency.
This plan would avoid a military
dictatorship. Several members ot

nre expected tomorrow at La Guayra.

CONSIDERED   PREMATURE.
Montreal, Que.,Oot. 9.-Dr. Borden,
Minister of Militia, was in Montreal
on Saturday, and when asked his
viovs wgardiug the proposal to send
Canadian troops to the Transvaal, he
Hiiid : "I believe with Sir Wilfred Laurier that all action in this direotion
would be premature, and bofore anything can be done it will be necessary
to summon Parliament, and ask its ad
vice. There is nothing to prevent any
'nan, or any body of men, from going
to the Transvaal and fighting in the
British army.''

'm a Stranger
Exclaimed an apparently refined lady as she entered our store
nnd took a peat by the counter���and I'm looking for a reliable
place to deal. I am not at all acquainted with the Western
prices and have been recommended to oome here, where I
would receive honest treatment. This is M. DesBrisay's isn't
it? Tbe clerk informed her that it was. Then she proceeded,
���5 lbs. t-a, 3 lbs. Coffee, 1 box Paterson's Oream Hoda Biscuits, etc., etc., too numerous to mention.
This goes to show that our reputation stands high, theq'ial-
ity of our goods equally high. While onr prices are very low
in comparison.

On the 3rd inst., Mr. R. MoKeennn

solid copper ore. The ore body is orer
five hundred feet long, and tho lead is
traceable for over 4,500 feet. The owners biought in some magnificent copper ore from the property on the 4th

all most to be admiicd and to bo remembered, is the very inspiration of
this festival. It is quite characteristic
of this oity of Chicago. The day
which she celebrates is the day of
direst calamity, tbe dnv when she waB
swept out of existence by fire. This,
I say, is very characteristic of Chicago,
but it reoalla her destruction in her
resurrection. It recalls the energy, the
faith, the perserveiuuce, which her
citizens met and conquered iu the appalling calamity,"
Sir Wilfred spoke for some time, and
was loudly and frequently applauded.
