Tenth  Year.
Transvaal Situation Again
at an Accute Stage.
MORE  TROOPS   READY
In the House of Co , nions Mr. Chamberlain Speaks iu a Very ��m-
phatic Manner-
London, Aug. !).-Replying to various questions in tlie House of Com
mons today, Mr. Joseph Chamberlain
said thnt no oflioinl confirmation had
heen recoived ot the report ���tbut the
Tiausviinl Inifl declined to agree to the
joint inquiry into the effect which
the tn 1 cliise reforms will havo on the
U jt I1111 rs. Several regiments, he
added, were about to ho dispatched to
South Africa for tlio defense of Natal,
in response to the request of the Natal
(ioverniueut, aud propartious were being made for all contingencies Later, replying to Mr. T. P. O'Connor,
Irish Nationalist member for Scotland
division, Liverpool. Mr. Chamberlain
depreciated a resumption of the donate
ou the Transvaal situation, which, ho
pointed out, while serious, still re-
niann doubtful. The Uoloninl Secretary added that he ginaerely hoped
thee rennrt that the enquiry proposal
had been rejected was untrue. While
he regretted tho uecessity for answering Mr. O'Connor, it would be a fatal
mistake tu -illow Iho hitter's view,
that war was entirely urehless and
that the Government was right to express willingness to wait, may be 25
yean, for redreBsal of the grievances
of which they eomplaiued to be con
sldered He added: "Representative
opinions of even the small minority
in the House of Commons or anything
bnt the most iiisignihoant minority
in the United Kingdom on tho Government's policy had been jlearly ex-
Brewed. We reomfiiize the grievances
of the  Uiilanrti--,,-,ifi   have sai I that
these grievances are not merely themselves a serious, cuus'e for interposition
but are a source of danger to the whole
of Snutn Africa. Wo say our predominance is menaced by the action of tbe
Transvaal in refusing to redress the
grievances or give consideration to requests hitherto put in the most moder-
nte language of a suzerain power. We
say this state of things cannot he tolerated. We have put our hands to the
pougli aud won't dnw back. With
that statement I proposo to rest content."
The additional troops ordered to be
iu readiness for transportation to South
Africa include a hnttallion of the
Grenadier Guards and three batteries or
artillery,
Tbo gravity of the Transvaal situation is generally regarded to havo been
increase,! by the latest news, and the
tone of Mr. Chamberlain's statement
on the eve of prorogation of Parliament, nd-nrsly affected prices ou the
stock exchange, where, however, the
pnees ot South African genomics are
now about, the worst. Consul were
anil, partly owiug to polin-s nd
partly because of the monitarv sitnu
tion.
While the members of Parliament
Bnd otfiolale present in theHmsc at.
the prorogation of Parliament today
expressed none of a peaceful settlement
ol Iho Transvaal diitionlty, it was evident that uneasy apprehension was
prcvahnt     th!lt   ������   lultnn)n    ,ell|0���

Rossland Miner : The ^as franchse

senting vote on tha part of the rate
payors. The fact that the vote was a
small one cannot fairly he taken as a
sign cf indifference on the part of the

go to Canada and submit the invitation. As for Mr. Fitzpatrick, Mr
Cobb's assistant, he li;u not been delegated or authorized to extend nn invitation to Sir Wilfrid or to other
members of the Canadian Cabinet. Of
the tepirted grounds takeu by the
Canadiau offioials that owiug to the
boundary dispute their visit might
not be wholly enjoynhle, Mr. Gordon
was unwilling to talk. ,-I am not
working for a boundary, hut for a corner stone laying," he said^ "We are
particularly anxious to have tbo Premier and other Canadian officials attend-

World's Championship Races
Now in Progress.
YESTERDAY'S WINNERS
Cinadians Were Prominent Bnt Did Kot
Land Any of the Big
Events.
Montreal,     Aug.   9.���The    world's
cycle championship meet of the International Cyclists'   Union,   under  the
auspices of the Canadian   Wheelmen's
Association,    opened     today   on     the
(Queen's Park traok.   Th3 weather was
beautiful, fair and   not too warm and
theie was but a slight wind, not heavy
enough to interfere   with   the  riders.
Ten thousand   people   saw   the  raceB.
idling every   seat ou the  grand  stand
and bleachers   and   overflowing on   to
tho rails along the track.    There  was
only one world's   championship  event
on two day's card, the  one mile,   and
it fell to Tom Suiumersgill,   of   Leeds
A. C.,   Euglaud,   who   won   it in   a
bruising finish from  Earl  Peabody of
Chicago and   John Cnldou, the Scotob
champion.    Of   the   other   men  from
aoross the water,   Cherry  of England,
was frozen out iu tho first   trial  beat,
finishing second to a local rider named
Boisvert.    The same fate befell George
of  South   Africa, in the second   heat.
Goodson,   tbe    Australian   champion,
perished in tbe   second   semi-final, be
ing beaten out   by Peabody,  Failland-
ior, the Frencbuian, also being left  iu
the same beat.    Tne three men in  the
final made'a loafing  race of it, no one
desiring to"cut out tbe pace.    Peabody
was in   tha   li-' ) t  with   Snmmersgill
in seoond plane and   Oaldon   trailing.
Tbey kept this   position nntil the batk
stretch of the ,rst ronud when   Oaldon
moved up and tbe three men came  into  the   stletch    practically    abreast.
Then it was that Snmmersgill let himself loose.    He   got   a   lead of   half  a
length   and   sneceeded in    holding  it
from Peabody, who had about tbe same
the best ot  Oaldon, who did not fini,
nearly as strongly as he did in the p>>
i miliar les.
Tbe most important professional
event wns the half mile. C. McCarthy,
of the Ten Eyck string, Net Bntler,
Carman, (the Canadian rider,) McCarthy, of Toronto, Major Taylor, and
Angus McLeod, of Toronto, were the
six men who got into the final. Theie
was a hair splitting finish between
McCarthy of St. Louis, and Major Tav-
loi. Tbe latter got into a pocket in
rounding into the stretch ; although he
made a greut hustle he was beaten
ont by McCarthy. It was only a matter
of inches. The decision was so olose
that wheu the leoisijn was announced
part of the crowd ou the stand baok
of the wire refused to accept it olnim-
iug that Taylor won. The time was
1.1-5.
In the cwo mile tandem, professional, new world'B compaction mark
of ii :47 S 5 was mude by the Butlers,
the previous record being 4.1 3-5 made
tiy MoDuffee and Tyrell4in Boston.
The men were paoed by triplet, the
Butlers coming out tit tbe head of the
stretch and winning prettily from
Cnuley uud Bowler, while Taylor
aud Casey wero a wheel baok of tbem.
Tho half mile amateur was won prettily by Lestor Wilson, of Pittsburg
who beat out Drury of Montreal handily. Cherry tho Euglish champion,
ran into tho fence and fell in the semifinal. The remaining race of the day,
the mile novice, went to Bert Denni-
son, of Toronto, enBily the boBt in the
bunch.

NELSON. B. C.
A CUNDITION OF UNREST.
of the last general election The next
thought is that even the Attorney
Generalship is a cheup price for politi-
OAl prostitution. He has the satisfaction of knowing thnt the Government
rgan in his own constituency told
the public a week ago that he was not
lit for the place. He also knows that
ihe Premier had not the slighast intention of offering him the office until
he found that no oue else would take
it."
If His Honor is half as solicitious
for the public welfare as he professed
to be wheu he thought it necessary to
force Mr. Tnruer out, he will insist
on nn early issue of the writ for the
election in New Westminster. The
present situation is oue of uncertainty,
and the effect it nan produced can
only be described as that of extreme
disquiet. A period should be put to
it as speedily as possible. Should Mi.
Henderson succeed in seenring his re-
electiou there will bo improvement in
the situation, as it would mean that
the life ofl the Government was insured until the next meeting of the Legis
1 iture. From tho business poiut of
view that would be a point gained.
The people would then be free to clear
their minds of the apprehension that
is now disturbing them and to turn
their attention to the consideration of
their own affairs. At present they are
too much consumed with anxiety as
to what may happen next. A Ministerial crisis affords excellent entertainment for the politicians, but *he general business of the country suffers by
it.
It is most desirable, therefore, that
tbo New Westminster election should
he hurried. If Mr . Semliu is to cou-
tinue in office until the Legislature
meets in regular session, the people
cannot know it too soon If Mr. Henderson fails to carry his sent, it would
mean the resignation of the Government' That at loast is the presumption, and it Mr Semliu should prove
incapable of so great a virtue as resignation he should be dismissed. In
either case there wonld necess.itily be
a general election, for it is not likely
that any person would nccept tbe responsibility of forming a new Government without the assurance of a dissolution.
Much, therefore, is depending on tbe
New Westminster election, and until
it is determined the public mind will
remain unsettled, to tlie great injury
of business generally. Mr. Henderson's snecess would afford tho country
the relief ol a truce; his defuit wouln
bring matters to a head, and while for
the moment aggravating the evil, would
iu the end clear the uir and bring about
a more Bottled conditiou of things.
That would seem to ho thu situation.
Mr.Semlin is probably content to have
the uncertainty indefinitely prolonged,
as in the meautime he is in possession
and cau partake of such enjoyment ns
tho posiiton affords. But it is not bo
gratifying to the country generally,
and as far aB may be consistent with a
reasonable exereiBo of his constitutional
authority it is to be hoped His Honor
will hasten the issue and permit the
country to become restful once more.
It has had enough of excitoraent, the
more especially ns it has been mixed
with apprehension that iu tho absorbing pursuit of their Bohomiug and iu-
trigulrig Ministers have neglected those
publio duties they are paid to discharge.
Via The Monetary Times, Toronto,
we learn that the British Columbia
Fruit Growers' Association are sending a carload of first-class plums to the
Northwest. A carload or less of first-
class native plums, carefully Ducked
as these will he. would he welcome in
Nelson, if offered ,\l a piice within
the leacbjof the average family. This
ii supposed to he n fruit Province, yet
in this not distant corner of it we are
made to pay greater than prairie prices
for the limited quantity supplied us.
Whether it is the Association, or the
railways, we do not know, but it costs
more to eat British Columbia fruit
at home thau it does abroad.
THOSK SUDBURY MINERS.
Editor of Tho Miner:
Sir���Iu The Tribune of August 8th
there is a delightful contradiction
which will amuse even those whose
viows coincide with those expressed
hy the editor of that erratic organ.
Under the heading "Concentrates" it
iB stated that the men imported from
Sudbury "by the Nelson District Mine
Owners Association came in ou transportation furnished hy tho Canadian
Pacific. The pass was made out, etc."
On tho editorial p.ige it is stated
that "Their transportation from Suu-
bury to the mim cost in the neighborhood of $500.''
The word transportation is equiva-
le n here to a free Dass iu fact.
Tho Tribune is particular in pointing out that n "pass" was made out.
Who then benefits by the $500 which
the editor estimates as the cost of
transportation? Not the C. P. R. lor,
according to The Tribune's reporter
the C. P. R. gave the meu a pass.
I has endeavored lo obtain
some light on the meaning of this
enigma. All that could be elicited
was that tbe men's fare was paid tor
in hard cash before before they started
from Sudbury and that The Tribnne
editor's brain, after the effect of a two
column sermon, is perhaps a little
clonded. I would suggest that a
walk along the C. P. R track iu the
direction of Robson might help to
drive away the cobwebs from that
master intellect. But if it wore not
for these ridiculous inconsistencies
who on earth would take the trouble
to read The Trbune?';,'
The following which I clip fiom the
VauconverWorld shows that the ianie of
theTribune and tis head push has reached theOoast: "The Nelson Tribune does
uot attich importance to the recent
meeting of the Boards of Trade of the
interior, ^which Jwas !_heldj last week
at Hossland. But, unfortunately for
The Tribune, it views everything from
either a political or a personal standpoint, so that little or no importance
is attached to its utterances by those
wbo know th t jonrnal and its conductors. Whatever The Tribune may
say to the contrary, there can he no
doubt whatever that considerable importance will be attached to the utterances and deliberations of the body it
so severely coniomns. "

Tho Government at Ottawa have
established a Bureau of Forestry in
oonneotion with tho Department of tho
Intnrior, ami appointed as Chief Inspector Mi. E. Stowart of Colling-
wood, ut a salary of ti..",!)!) a year. Tho
Montreal Star doos not objnet to tlie
Bureau or to the salary, bnt likens the
appointment to tbat of a bone dealer
as a niiniiiK inspector, 01 to tho award
of a breakwater contract to a printer.
Iii this instance The Star is yery
much astray, as Mr. Stewart is experienced in woodcraft. Ho is a Land
Surveyor, and in the practice of his
profession* has been engaged for many
yearB iu surveying the wild lands of
the Dominion and of Ontario. There
has scarcely heen a seiiBou those last
fifteen or twenty years that he has not
had a contraot which sent him into
tho wooos. Few men havo had wider
experience, or possess greator practical knowledge of forestry. If tho Bureau is right nud the Balary right,
those who know Mr. Stewart will testify that tho man is right.
Honorable men will not envy Mr.
Henderson, of whom The Colonist
says: "Concerning Mr. Henderson'l
acceptance of the position, ono of the
first thoughts tint suggest themselves
is that those who may support him in
the by-olootiou will probably bo asked

1 j ohjBOteil to the road to 40 Creek
ois'iM throngh their yard. Both he
���u,i the other menbecs of the Oonnoil
had talked the matter over tefore the
Counoil meotioR Land had come to the
conclusion that the convenience of the
public shonld  have first consideration.
The situation at present is as follows: Silica street lias been closed at
tho West end where tho old trail used
to pass. It ��vill ho necessary shortly to
opiii the trail owing to the urowiug
importance of the mines iu that .district. Hut the land which includes
that portion of BillAA street his been
decided by the Government to the
Hall Mines Limited, and they now
propo'U to sell n portion of it to the
gas 01 ipany. Now if the trail is re-
opinio 1 that portion of the route which
ran through Silica streot will have to
bo changed. The only other possible
alternative route would carry it not
only through tho C. P. yard hut along
patt ot the siding and track. I* must
bo patent to everyone that this will
mean serious ir.r.ovenionce to thn
public who use tbe trail Tlio C
P K nanoot bo expected to '>rnuk up
froijtut trains that happen to be on
the tiding in order to let people pass.
A��.n.i people do uot want to be dodging engines and oars In order to pass
to tho mines. Api.rt from all Ihis is
the danger to the public an4 the question whether tho Government would
ever graut the new right of way.
Olearly tbo most convenient ronte
wool I be Hint of tne old trail, namely
along Silica streot. This route the
pnblio had a right to. The City Council maintain that that right still exists
nud in endeavoring to assert that right
thev aio but studying the convenience
of tho public.
Tbe wharf question is ft little more
complicated. A promiueut citizen
told The Miner tht.t tho sugge tion
that the 0; ft Bw would like to see
the Hull street: wh��rf abandoned ftnd a
new wharf built at the foot of auotber
street, ou both sides of which the C.
P R. owns the land, is childish The
C. P. R. havo spert nearly tlfi.OOC on
their own wharf, and it would sutlice
for nil their wants. Why should ihe
use tho Government (or rather the
Oity) wharf! It is questionable
in the event nf wharf dues being
charged, whether they will do so in
nay case. The mud flat which runs
out from the foot of Josephine street
tn tl.e 0. P. K. wharf would moko the
o st of a new wharf a heuvv item in
order to allow boats to roach it ftt low
water.
What the City really want to know
is whether they are to own tlie land on
which the wharf is built? Those win
aro lirerestert in the Nelsou Saw and
Plaining Mills Ltd., naturally reseut
this as it might raise the question as
to what their rights nre if any. As
pointed out lo Thn Miner, Tbe Tribune seems :o take a keen interest in
safe gunrdin'4 tbe Saw Mill from the
persistent enqnir.es of the City Path
ers. What is Iho reason of tbis? Another citizen went so far as to suggest
lhat it was ihe Nelson Saw Mill that
really wanted the wharf moved, in
fact that ohe who is interested in thnt
company had suggested this plan to one
of the Aldermen. Tho Saw Mill's title
to the land whioh it is built is somewhat vague. It would oertniuly be
in tho iuterests of that oompany to
acquire an indisputable title to the
land they new occupy and poBsibly ft
little bit more.
At any rate the Oity Council seem to
know what thoy are about and, some
of tbe members nt least, are keeping

aud some months ago came west, and

fair liviii'. (However, there was
nothing in it ind he wrote to friends
iu Nelsou to see if there was anything
here he conld d i. He was expected
to arrive in Nel-nn any i-ay. It is probable, however, that be did not havo

doing assessment work.

which ship a great riu.l of marble to
New Yoik and other Eastern centres,
states that the stone in the West Kootenay Brink and Lime company's quarry

SITUATION    REVIEWED
Very Little Dealings iu Briti; h Columbia
Shares���i'wo Gold 1'r.cis
xliported.
The Mining World und Engineering
Record of London, Eng., has the following review of B. 0! JJuring the
pant three months,tbe market for tint-
inn Columbian shares has attracted
onlya small amount of attention, and
business bus been piacticully contiiied
to [n small number of issues This,
however, is not surprising, for besides
the political restlessu <ss, and the constantly recurring nervousness with
regard to the monetary posiiiou, there
can be no doubt that political incidents
iu the Provisos have tended to unsettle the industry and to restrict the subscription of new capital to mining
enterprises, in the early part of the
year legislation was introduced and
passed providing that eight houis
should constitute a day's work in the
underground workings ot all mining
properties. Tha provision was not at
once put into force; but, when the
mining companies of the Slocan district aunouuced that, in Lonsetjuence ol
the decision to leduce the number of
working hours from ten to eight, it
would be necessary at the same time
to reduce the rate (f payment from
$8.60 to |8 a day, widespread agitation ensued, more especially as it was
at the same time aunouneed that the
other rates of wages would be lessened
proportionately. According to the latest information   from the Nelson   and
Vmir districts, a large number of miners were on strike; but, fortunately
in the Rossland district the mine
owners aud their employees made
mutual concessions aud no trouble has
been experienced in relation to the enforcement of the eight hour law.
The rate of wages paid is the same UB
when 10 hours were worked; out even
before the law was passed a considerable amount of three-shift work was
done, aud the eight hour system was,
therefore,practically operative in Rossland before the new law was pissed.
In Rossland, however, the rate of payment to undergrourd miners has
throughout been $3 a day. In the Slocan district many of tho underground
workings have bcjn suspeuded owing
to the want of men tor devel pmeut
purposes.
In addition tn the trouble caused in
Southern British Columbia, where
nearly nil the mines, with the exception
nf those in the Trail Creek division,
have been closed, it is stated that in
the department of the Mining Recorder
there has been such au utter lack of
method that claims have beeu staked
as many as a dozen times over, and
the feeB in each case have been accepted , so that there is widespread confu-
sou, and it is unlikely that in order
will be restored for some time to come;
while, to make matters worse, Mr.
"Joe" Martin, the Attorney-General
Ior the Provinco, 1i:vb been,we are told,
riding rough-shod over the established
rules and usages of the profession
���which he adorns.
Ymir, Aug. !). ��� (Special)���Last
evening a large and representative
meeting was held in the Miners Union
Hull for the purpose ot discussing the
advisability of sending a mineral
exhibit to theSpokaneFruitFair accompanied by an able representative. Mr
Joseph Petrie was the unanimous
choice made to represent Ymir. This
gentleman is well adapted for the positiou, he being one of the pioneers of
this camp, and is iu a position to voice
its praises. Besides he is oue of t) e
locators of the now famous Ymir mini,
A committee of six were chosen to
raise the necesBary funds for tho
purpose of sending the delegate.
Mr. Spencer who has beeu in tho
Smilkameen oountry for the pnst two
months prospecting fur a Rossland syndicate returned Monday. In conversation with your correspi udent the geu-
tlemau stated that the mineral indication are not sutlieient to justifv the
boom that is now going on in that
country. He further slated that Ymir
mineral showing was ahead of anything that he has yet seen, and he has
faith in this camp as boiug a big producer ere loug.
Ed. Cobb, one of the pioneers of this
camp, returned the first of the week
from Dawson City where he has beeu
Kliding foi the past year. He states
that all the good things are in the
hand" of a few. ami that the poor
man stands a very scant chance ol
making anything.

steps are being taken to prevent a repetition of the attempt Early Sunday
a guard on night duty noticed a
strange depression in the earth of the
yard near the south wall His first

These cells were occupied by Joseph
Sullivan, sentenced to nine years;

Howard aud Stevens escaped November 1897. were recaptured aud sentenced

perpendicularly about five feet and
then started horizontally for the south
