Eleventh Year
Enthusiastic Rally of Nelson

The Local Conservatives Give
Cood Advice in Short
An Informal meeting of the   Nelson
LiBeral-l'oiiservntlve   Association    nf
Nelsou  was  held   In   the  committee
rooms, over Neelands Shoe Store, lust
evening. Candidate McNeill was present to become acquaintel  with   the
Conservatives  of    Nelson,   and     the
meeting resulted   in  11 great deal  of
enthusiasm being infused in the local
ranks,   The  President   will    shortly

probably be held in the Opera  House.
Mr. Fred Irvine,   president   of  the
Association,  occupied   the chair,    tn

K'lve four reasons   why the (Jonuerva-
lives would be elected in this contest,
as follows: First, the Conservative
party lias never been defeated in a
straight contest in Canada, tlie I'aeilie Scandal in 1874, and the school
question in 1800, contributing to the
defeat of the Conservatives who have
never lost in a straight party light
like the one now pending; second,
British Columbia Is Conservative ami
owes nothing to the Liberal party
which has clone nothing for il: third,
in the latest redistribution measure
this great constituency was not di-
vided up. as the Liberals appreciated
the fact thai to make three constituencies out of it, would mean three
Conservative members more in the
house; fourth. Ihe Conservatives of
tills constituency had as a candidate
the stamp of man whose presence was
required in the House and he was a
man they all could heartily support.
The more he was seen in the constituency the stronger lie grew.
Alexander Sharp, vice-president of
the Liberal-Conservative Association
of Rossland made a stirring speech,
and was followed by Mr. G, A. Stewart-Potts and Mr. .loliu Elliott. The
latter said he had known the candidate for a long time and knew him to
bean admirable candidate, lie was
making a great sacrifice in consenting
to run and the Conservatives should
reward him by seeing that he headed
the polls on election day. John Toye
also made a few remarks.
Organization was then considered
and it was decided that tne chairman

Ultimate Destination of Kettle
River and Republic
SO     SAYS    MR.    MORRIS
Company Has Secured an Old
Franchise -Work on
the Road.
"Tho ultimate destination of tho
Kettle River & Republic Kail road is
the coast." said W. C. Morris, one of
tho stockholders. This is the company which recently secured a franchise from the Provincial Parliament
for a road from the boundary line to
(irand Forks, and which now has surveyors laying out its lino in Perry
County. Mr. Morris went on to say
tlint his company has taken over an
old franchise granting the right of
way to construct a road from the
Boundary Creek country to Vancouver
in a more direct line than the Canadian Pacific This line, if constructed,
it is said, will open up a remarkably
rich country.
An officer of the company said recently concerning tho line from Republic to Grand Korku:
"The cost estimated for Its construction will be 840,01X1 per mile.
The surveys sliould be completed in 30
days and, should the winter not be
too severe, we expect to work steadily
from that time on. It will probably
take four mouths to construct the
road and begin operations from the
time of acceptance of the final sur
Veys. The company is an independent
one and has no transcontinental alliance whatever.
"We are satisfied that the road will
pay from the start, and while there
may be some prejudice among a few
people towards a railroad connecting
with a Hritish Columbia eity it
sliould not be taken into consideration, as Republic must have an outlet
for their ore products and passenger
traffic in and out by railroad connection ; and this being the quickest and
shortest way to obtain that bcucHt, it
would appear from a broad view of the
situation the most feasible and desirable. Seven-dollar ore can be loaded from tlie ore-bins at the mines on
the cars and Shipped and treated at
any of the smelters on the railroad at
a profit to tho mine-owners.
"We are arranging to get the necessary right of way from the Government and tlie Indians along the route
through the reservation, and from
present indications we see no obstacles In the way. We have gone into

More Bloodshed Among the
Striking  Miners in
Goal Companies May Make
Some Concessions to
the Men.
Sofanton, Pa., Sept. M.��� The first
bloodshed which may be laid to the
striking miners in tlie Lackawanna region, is reported this morning from
Sibley, a milling settlement in the
mountains in Old George township
about six miles from Scranton. Three
men were wounded in a row in which
about 80 revolver shots were fired.
The participants were all Italians
and were mostly men who had. before the Btrike began, been working
as non-unionists, but who became
members of the United Mine Workers
two weeks ago. Last light the men
got into a fight on the roadway near
Barberton. Revolvers were drawn by
several and when the bat'le was over
three men were down in tlie road, one
so badly wounded that this morning
there was little hope for his recovery-.
Several arrests have been made.
The strike situation throughout the
Lackawanna Valley remained practically unchanged today, the Lackawanna Company working its four
washerios without molestation. Hut
no coal goes out over the road at
present, being held oil the mine
switches, information this morning
in efl'cct is thai the big companies are
prepared tomorrow to grant concessions provided that at the time tlie
men are actually working and in
their employ. Hut there is an understanding that, come what may,
the compromise must not be effected
through the United Mine Workers.
While many miners are anxious to
settle the strike and return to work,
regardless of the means by which all
amicable settlement is made, there is
quite a strong sentiment to remain
out until the union is recognized, anil
until the organization is satisfied that
work can be resumed advantageously
to the union.
llarrisburg, Pa., Sept.211. ��� Seventy-
five miners went on strike today at
the Lower City Colliery, controlled by
the Philadelphia and Reading Coal
and Iron Co. There are 1,800 men
employed at the Colliery and this is
the first break in their ranks. A
branch of the Mine Workers Union is
being organized at Lower City and
and itrlkB leaders predict that many
of the men will go out tomorrow.

The Conservatives hold a rally meeting for organization purposes this
evening, and the Liberals will nominate candidates tomorrow evening.
There is an unconfirmed rumor to
the effect that Dougnn,   the   operator
responsible for the B,   ft N,   Railway
disaster, has gone   insane.
If the results obtained from the
Wreck Hay placer claims had been
obtained from any   piece of ground iu
the Yukon or northern territory about
fourteen hundred miles from Victoria,
there would have been a great stampede notwithstanding that all the
available ground was taken up. The
clean-Up on the bench at Wreck Hay
has really been phenomenal. A promt*
nent citizen received a letter from one
of the workmen employed by tl in
pany, in which he says: "Victorians

American Ollicer lias Many Compliments For French Militia.
Paris, .Sept. '.Mi.���Major .1. If. Mot-
tuvsa, who represented tho Unite..
States at tlie recent French luanocn���������
ers, is preparing his report to the
War Department, lle said to the Associated Press today; "The manoeuv-
ers proved extremely interesting and
instructive. Krom several points of
view the extensive use of auto-cars
was a most striking innovation and
the result attained has fully justified
the claim for their practical utility
in European warfare. They did excellent work, enabling tin1 generals and
their messengers to cover great distances ill a few hours. Auto-traction
cars, moreover facilitate the task of
the commissary department Immensely, hauling cars heavily laden with
provisions. They have undoubtedly
come to stay. 1 examined this ques-
tiou of military automobiles from the
American standpoint, aud while fully
appreciating the former service they
render to the armies of Europe, where
high ways are well built and the distances comparatively small, 1 do not
believe they would be of sufficient value on the rough American roads and
over enormous tracts of country as in
the United States, to justify tin
heavy expense of their introduction
and maintenancce in the American
army. Our needs differ considerably
from those of the European countries.
The latter must always prepare for possible war on their own soil and their
conditions favor the use of auto-cars,
while the possibilities of hostilities
within tlie United   states are remote
and their value is highly problematical,   Another foatm f the manoeuv-
ers which much impressed me is the
new artillery. The latest French cannon is undoubtedly the most efficient
weapon and involves a new method of
working which is a vast, improvement
on the old style. The French artillery men know their business t  and
their prompt and effective iiianocuver-
Ing,combined with rapid serving of the
guns is sinily admirable.
As to the cavalry, their methods are
quite different from ours. American
cavalry acts chiefly as the eyes and
ears of the main body and as mounted infantry. We consider that (he
days When masses of cavalry were
thrown against infantry an- past.
Hut hereafter cavalry charges arc still
considered feasible. Another great
war will alone decide whetherthe latter Idea is justified. One thing the
cavalry operations brought out was
the clever horsemanship of the French
ollieers. They have been described as
poor riders, but all doubts on that
score   were   thoroughly   dispelled   by
the Hue display they  made ai ml St
Charles, 1 came away with a golden
opinion of the infantry. They are
not merely splendid marchers who
keep in good spirits   under Irving olr-
oumstances, but they an- a.. Indepond
cut soldiers, in supplying their own
wants, as any I have ever met."

"liritisli institutions will not suffer
from the enmity of Mr. Tarte," says
The Rossland -Miner. That is quite
true, but it is not tho point. British
institutions iu Canada are iu no danger of suffering from the oninity of
any person or any association of persons. It is not Mr. Tarte's enmity
that has annoyed and disgusted loyal
Canadians, who least of all fear anything from it. lie may be as hostile
as he pleases, and no one will care so
long as the hostility is that of Mr.
Tarte the citizen, But Canadians uh a
rule do not care to have as a member
of their Oovernmenl a man who is
constantly prating of his dear Franco,
who makes official excursions im a
Government steamer Hying- the French
flag, who publicly boasts that if he
cannot be a British Minister without
ceasing to be French he will quit Her
Majesty's service, who goes over to
France and tolls the people there that
French-Canadians are becoming more
French every year, and that their Hag
Is the trl-color, not tlie   Union   .lack.
These things   are   offensive   to   loyal
English-speaking Canadians of proper feeling, and they are moved to resent them. They do not doubt the
loyalty of the   great   body   of    French
Canadians, nor suggest the slightest
suspicion of it ; and even if Mr. Tarte
had influence enough to move any
number of them to disloyal sentiment
or action, would they fear in the least
degree anything lie and they could do.
Wo arc glad to sec that our namesake
at Rossland is no more pleased with
Mr.Tarte's utterances than other Canadians, who do not, however, share
his disposition to pass them over because they do not threaten injury to
the established institutions of the
country. A man holding views he so
Impudently expresses has no business
to act as a sworn adviser of Her Majesty in this Dominion, and tlie colleagues who can tolerate association
with him are little better than himself. If Mr. Tarte would rather be
French than a Canadian Minister let
him cease to lie the latter, and if the
Premier cannot oi will not compel
him to a decent respect for the feelings of loyal Canadians who acknowledge but the one Hag the people of the
Dominion cannot do better than turn
out the whole lot of them.
The Liberals took office at the tale
end of 1873, and went out five years
later. During nearly the whole of
that period the country suffered from
business disprcssion. Much of the
evil of hard times was attributed to
their own want of policy, and many
were the Indlgant protests made
against sticli an imputation by the
leaders nnd newspapers of the party.
They thought it was unjust to accuse
them of a business stagnation that not
only affeoted Canada hut the whole
world. How could they Help the hard
times'.' Some eighteen or twenty yearn
later they come in again, and during
their term of olliee the times are particularly good. All brandies or business arc in a flourishing Condition,
and the country is happy in ifs prosperity. It is observed, however, that
the good times are not conliiird to
Canada,any more than was tlie depression of iHT.i-Ts. They are good everywhere, Iii Great Britain, throughout
Europe, and iu the United States it is
doubtful if the business conditions
were ever so satisfactory. Vet for
the prosperity in Canada the Liberals
today are taking the entire credit.
They repudiated the blame for the
hard times, but claim that they are
instrumental in producing the good.
If their   memories  were   better  they
might be more modest.
The e is loud boasting of a surplus
of eight millions and sonic odd dollars after balancing up Hie accounts
ot the last  liseal    year.     Hut  it is easy
to figure out n surplus. The Government papers take the receipts for the
year. ."-;> 1,nun,nun, and from this sum

and behold a surplus of 88,024,000.
This surplus is lo be dragged by the
neck through the campaign, to do service for the party in the approaching
elections. No reckoning is made of expenditure on capital account, which
brought up the total to 853,713,810,
Instead of a surpus of eight million
odd. there is actually a dclicit of over
a million anil a half!
Some of the Government organs nrc
limiting savings-bank deposits as evidence of the prosperity the Liberal
party were kind enough to drag in
with them when they took otlice four
years ago. No evidence of that kind
is necessary. The prosperity actually
exists, nnd is substantial enough to
appeal to the sensibilities of all who
take an interest in the industrial and
commercial conditions of the country.
Conservatives as well as Liberals
acknowledge it, and are glad at it
and grateful for it. But so far as it
is due to policies of administration
the credit must go to the Conservatives, for it was they who provided
tlie tarifV that is so succcssfuly fostering our own industries and at present
yielding the handsome revenue which
is furnishing the Liberal Government
with surpluses.

rnor of the tent with an exhibition
s|m,, 13x20 feet. BisdiBplay will be
arranged along the wall In the form
���U Boml-oirole, arched outward at
the top, with a groundwork of black
rollevod by dozens of inoandesoont
UglitB. The minerals "ill be arranged along the wall on the stand at the
Iront, producing a striking and pleas
ing e
Scot.   Mr. Dowsing has samples
from over 70 mines, several or   which
are known on two  I tlnents.     All of
tlie properties represented are tributary to Nelson. The oresnro supported by other minerals and products
manufactured therefrom, such as marble, limestone, building atone and
brick. The Silver King whloh under
reorganization, has resumed development w-ith u large force, contributes
to the collection. The following are
some of the oilier Important mines of
the district that will be represented:
The Athabasca,which is two and one
half mill's from Nelson, its ore is
free milling t""' assays from STfi lo
8714 per ton, It lias over '.'.Too feel of
tunneling and 700-feet of shafts and
raises. There Is a 10-stamp mill and
an air compressor, both driven by
uater power. This mine has just do-
cliircd a dividend of 835,000, being .".
percent, on the capital stock of the
company. Since May I the mine litis
produced S83,000,nnd made n net profit
uf nearly 800,000.
Venus is three miles from Nelson,
The ledge is of gold-hearing quarts,
free milling, of an average width of
about two feet. It assays from Slo to
Sun, The workings constat of three
tunnels'with a total length of 1,400
feet, its net output averages Siotio
per month.
May ami Jonnle is owned by A. 11.
Kelly ami situated on Forty-Nine
Creek, eight miles from Nelson. It is
��gold property and assays average
for six feet si7. The average for 30
feet is s:,. There is over 850 feet of
tunnel and shafting on the property
and TOu feet on the lend. Arrangements are being made for the erection
uf a S0-stamp mill.
The Molly Gibson is situated 10
miles from Nelson. It assays 150
ounces of silver and :;(> per cent. lend.
There are numerous other properties
uf merit represented in tile exhibit,
hut spaee forbids their mention.
Asked as to what disposition would
he made of the exhibit after tlie exposition, Mr, Dowsing said: "1 shall
find suitable quarters in Spokane ami
open a bureau of general Information
un the mines tinil mining  resources of
Hritish Columbia, where I   will keep
"ii tile all papers anil periodicals, lis
well as maps of the Province. This iH
demanded because of the Intimate relation between this city witli the
Kootenays anil other Hritish Columbia divisions, and while 1 will not
eluse my Nelson olliee, my partner, T.
(i. Procter, will assume full charge
there, while I uttend to this end.
"When we have a good property
whloh we wish to make returns on
quickly wo look to Spokane and we are
Boldom disappointed, Spokane people
usually know a good thing when they
see it ami are quick to net. Spokane
is looked upon as the best friend und
neighbor of the mining camps of British Columbia and the Intercourse lias
always heen mutually proatable, I
look for even butter opportunity for
investment than in the past, as is evidenced in tiR.; steadily growing demand f,���. jjood property, both from
this country and abroad.
Speaking of the Sloean exhibit, Mr.
Coplen said that his, first estimate on
what the mines of the district would
contribute in the way of exhibits
would be far eAcoeded and that ho
was making preparations for a most
complete display of nil the different
characters of oro of that region, lle-
���"g asked what his   arrangements
would be, ho saia he did not eare to
make It public asyet,��a some changes
might he required owlne; to the larger display promised than be had expected.
The British Columbia exhibit will

ginning at the west nnd, Nelson coming first at tlie west end, then Ymir,
Atnsworth, Sloean, Boundary, Camp
McKinncy, and other camps not yet

The Camp MolClnney exhibit will

While Ainswoi-tb, Rossland and
ymir promise finer exhibits than
havo uver been shown here before, the
representatve not yet being on the
ground, no definite   Information Is at
hand except that VV. L, Orde of Hoss-
liinil, says about 3,000 pounds of ore

shooting affair which occurred yesterday morning at Addy, n town a few
miles south of C'olvillc and which resulted In the killing of one man and
badly wounding another. It appears
that the two men who were highwaymen, had hold up a man at .Marcus
the ilay before and had arrived at
Addy yesterday morning. As soon as
it was known that the  robbers  were
in town, the deputy Sheriff tried to
arrest them. The men put up a Btl'OUg
fight and drew guns, By this time
the residents, with guns and revolvers.came to the assistance of the sheriff. The men lied to the woods and
then to the river, and Bhooting was
kept up in the meantime. The robbers
tried to escape by swimming the Col-
ville Kiver. amid a shower of bullets.
As the men landed on the other side,
a hall from the sheriff's revolver
struck one and be tell dead. The
oilier man was also brought to the
ground, and made no further attempt
to escape, The body of the dead muti
was brought to Colville by the evening
train. Tile robbers are said to be
Spokane men.

We hear all kinds of things about
rebellion here and uprising there
,i I ii int. Iioxers' associations and things
of that kind in China, tint such disturbances have always existed in that
country, and they are but local and
transient, They arc not the result of
a second childhood or anything of
I hat sort.
I think if you will get hold of 350,-
000,000of people and govern theiu with
greater ease than the Chinese tire governed at the   present   time   you   will
perform one of the groatst feats  that
civi li/.al ion has known.
china is a marvellous country, I
need not (ell yon what it. represents ���
almost a quarter of the globe.
Its men are equal to any climate.
They can work as well with the temperature below zero as they can when
it is a hundred in the shade. Surely
a nation of this kind cannot be stamped out in a hurry. My good friend
Lord Charles Beresford, I think, made
a great mislake when he entitled his
book '���The Break-Up of China.'' Considering the many, many centuries
that the Chinese nation has gone on,
I do not think il requires much faith
on our part to expect that it will go
on for a considerable time more.
On the contrary, we are on the eve
of a great development in China. We
only want to have that vast country
intersected with railways, as this
great continent is. W'e want its rivers and waterways opened up. Then it
will show a development that will astonish the nations.
China is a country to whieh railroads are particularly applicable.
A great part of it is very Hat and all
of it is densely populated.
Lately when travelling over the
Canadian I'aeilie I saw that they had
lirst to make the line and trust to it
to create its own traffic, In China the
reverse is the case. They have the
traffic there already waiting for the
China also has magnificent waterways. It is intersected by canals from
one end of the country to the other,
but unfortunately these canals have
been allowed to get into disrepair.
As to roads, there are practically
none at all that are worthy of the
The introduction of railroads into
China will break down the system of
impositions or "squeezes" on the part
of petty mandarins. It is easy to
stop a river boat manned by a dozen
coolies, but il is not so easy to stop a
train. The piracy which is so common on the rivers ��� in the interior
would soon be stopped if steamers
came into use.
The Chinese Government has been
most liberal in granting concessions
for railways and mining rights, but 1
regret to say that the concessionaries
have not been equal to the opportunities that have been offered to them.
They have heen jumping over each
other to get the concessions, hut they
have run behind iu carrying them
All things considered. I really fail
to set bounds to the magnitude of the
China trade. I am equally convinced
that there will he tremendous competition for it. and I will give a reason
of my own which I have never before
seen in print���tlie vast augmentation
of the budgets of the world.
One after another the nations of Europe have double their budgets for the
army, navy and civil service. How
are they to pay for these budgets'.1

Win. Sexton, of this city, has about
the biggest fish story of the season
and he produces witnesses to vouch
for its truth, says the Grand Fork Gazelle, lle was out, lishing one day
this weeli and caught a "big 'un"
without hooking him in any way.
This is the way it happened:
lie was casting with a fly and had
two hooks on his leader. The big lish
jumped for the top hook and missed,
but struck the leader in such a way
that the lower hook caught on the
leader in such a way as to form a
running noose which caught around
the fish's tail and lightened until it
cut Into Its flesh, The big fish made a
gallant fight but the odds were too
.great and it was drawn ashore ex-
jliatistcd. It was 23 inches long and

not caught, in the lish in anyway
