Fortifications at Pel

FORTS   MUCH    DAMAGED
Chinamen Succeed In Escaping -Very Little Loss of
Life.
Taku.Sept. 22.���Four thousand Russians, three thousand Germans, and
cue thousand Kronen troops, with a
detachment of Austrian Marines, began the attack upon the Pel Tang
forts at daylight, The attack was
answered briskly from the forts, the
bombardment continuing until noon,
but It was noticed that ihe forts did
not reply after ten o'clock. The Allies were soil forward at uoon to discover the reason of the  cessation of
firing from the forts, and found them
deserted, there being only lour dead
Chinamen without the walls. The Allies were much chagrined as they believed they had the place completely
/surrounded,making escape impossible
yet over three thousand men got away
in broad daylight. The Russiun artillery (Ire proved effective and the
forts were badly damaged. The Hritish and Italian commanders had decided to join in the attack but their
troops had not arrived in time.
Washington, D. ���., Sept. 22.���The
Navy Department has received the following cablegram from Admiral Re-
iney:
"Taku, Sept. 22.���A force of Russians, Germans and Austriuns advanced on Pei Tang forts lust night. Fire
was opened by the Chinese aud kept
up all night at intervals. Forts evacuated at nine this morning. Europeans hoisted their colors over the forts
at II a. in. Twenty-five Russians and
Germans reported blown up by a
mine. Information was obtained from
Commander Wise who followed the
troops into the forts. Only live Chinese killed.    Reniey."

Politics and Other Matters of General
1 nterest.
New York, Sept.22.���Mr. I. N. Ford
cables the New York Tribune as follows: The press is rilled with election
intelligence, but the contest iu too
unequal to be interesting. A Uionist
victory is conceded even by tho Liberal political managers and tho only
question iu doubt is whether the government will have a larger or a smaller majority in the new than it haB in
the ,,ui Parliament,
There will he little political oratory and the details of the settlement in South Africa will not be explained though this is the issue upon
which thu Government iiskB for seven
years extension of its lease of power.
The electorates which have been artl-
lically restricted by the disfranchisement of an enormous body of voters
under the old registry will be culled
upon to arm the Government with a
mandate to convert Dutoh Africa into
Hritish Africa or scientifically that
the work can never bo   undone.
Public interest centers in the reconstruction of the cabinet rather than In
the result of the elections which is a
foregone conclusion. Lord Lansdowne
is marked out for slaughter, and Viscount Gross will also be forced to retire. It is also rumored that the Duke
of Devonshire will not be a member of
the ministry after the elections and
that Loid Lansdowne's resignation
from the War Office will be the signal
for the retirement of Mr. Goscben
from the admiralty. If these forecasts
are fulfilled Mr. Chamberlain will be
almost the only prominent Liberal-
Unionist in the cabinet and ought to
have a most conspicuous office in order to illustrate tho principle of the
survival of the Httest.
There are, however, a good many
supcruuuated Tories who would adorn
the privacy of retirement and their
fate has not yet been settled byjthe rumor mongers. One theory Is that Lord
Cromer will be brought into the Foreign Olliee and General Kitchener into
the War Olliee and that Mr. Ilalfour,
Mr. Chamberlain and Sir Michael
Hicks-Beach will be left where they
are. The "Aldersbot gang" which
planned the holiday promenade to
Pretoria a year ago, will find itself
"between the devil aud the deep sea"
when asked to choose between Mr.
Chamberlain and General   Kitchener.
Another mystery which fascinates
the rumor mongers is the probable
selection of the new lord chief justice. The Lord High Chancellor ordl-
narily makes all judicial appointments'^LL QUIET THIS MORNING
but the prime minister is responsible
for the choice of Lord Chief Justice,
Lord Salisbury and Lord Hnlbury are
tntlm&te personal friends and probably will talk tho matter over.but the
decision rests with the prime minister. Sir Edward Clarke would have
been Lord Russell's natural successor
if he had not gone wrong on South
Africa and been forced to abandon
public life, Sir Richard Webster has
excluded himself from the chief seut
on the bench by becoming master of
the rolls. Sir Robert Findlay has
been attorney-general only a few
months and Ills elevation to Lord Russell's place would be premature.
Some most astute lawyers and officials
are predicting the appointment of
Sir Francis Jeun, He has been president of one of the great divisions of
the bench and has great influence at
court and in political circles.
Some Unionist journals are seeking
to create the impression that Germany
and England are leading and controlling the vurions other powers
on the China question. Germany bus
taken, without doubt a line of her
own, but the British foreign office
Has made it clear that it preferred to
follow the other powers and was unwilling to lead the way. The German
Emperor's circular is now commended
by the English press as the wisest deliverance yet made on the Chinese
question, although it is not explained
how any black list of guilty mandarins can be provided which will omit
at the top the of the Empress Dowager
as the chief conspirator against the
foreign embassies aud mission stations.
The most candid English journals
tell the plain truth about the diplomatic situation, namely, thut Great
Britain by remaining in the background and waiting for other powers
to take the initiative, has lost the
great opportunity for justifying its
position as an Asiatic power and exerting moral influence in the world.
England has been adrift in China
without a definite policy. Now that
the elections are coming on the Foreign Office is stiffening its diplomacy
and receives credit from the Unionist
press for making strong demands at
Pekin.
A CHANNEL  BLOCKED,
A llarge Sunk In the Rapids at St.
Clair River.
Port Huron, Mieh., Sept. 22.���The
barge Martin, in tow of the steamer
Maurice T. Glover, was sunk in the
raotds at the entrance to the St. Clair
River last night by the straight back
steamer Yuma, and Captain James
Lawless, of Lolrn; Win. Ross, mate,
of Toledo; Mrs. llacon, of Toledo, and
one sailor, name unknown, are missing. Navigation through the channel
is completely blocked. Tugs are out
in Lake Huron notifying down bound
boats to anchor. The Bunken wreck
of the schooner Foutain and the Martin lie quite close together and one
or both of them will have to be blown
up in order to clean the channel.
UIG FIRE   IN BROOKLYN.
Grain Warehouses and Elevators Arc
Being Consumed.
New York, Sept. 22.���The large
grain warehouses and the elevators of
the Atlantic dock, Brooklyn,arc burning and it is feared that a loss of at
least half a million dollars will ensue. Ney's stores adjoining, were al
so on lire.
ANOTHER LONE ROBBER.
Spokane, Wash., Sept. M,���Single'
handed, a masked robber held up the
westbound passenger train on the
Northern Pucllic at one o'clock this
morning and succeeded in getting
away with about 8M)0 In cash, several
watches anil u quantity of jewclcry.
Ha/.elton, Pa.. Sept. 22.���Calmness
prevailed throughout the Lehigh re
gion this morning. No disturbances
of any moment were reported in any
part of the district. There was still
a tension on the public mind, but the
sending of troops to Shenandoah, 4T,
miles from here,was generally regarded as bringing matters to a crisis,
and the situation here has been somewhat relieved. Armed deputies were
distributed among most collieries and
along several of the public roads,leading to the mining properties. There
was the usual number of strikers out
early this morning, trying to persuade workmen not to go into the
mines, but they did not meet with as
much sucess as on the previous days
of the week. The strikers were care
ful not to carry their persuasion to
the point of Intimidation, thus avoiding a conflict with the deputies. The
strike situation was practically unchanged   this morning.
Shenandoah, Pa., Sept. 22.���All was
quiet here up to 9 a. m. Troops
began arriving soon after daylight
and soon after daylight about 2,500
soldiers were on the ground. The saloons are all closed and martial law
prevails. Tho collieries were idle,
having been closed by the Reading
Company at the request of Sheriff
Toole in order to avert trouble. It developed this morning that only one
person, Mike Y'uckavaga, was killed
outright in last evening's Bhootiug
here. Annie Rogers recovered consciousness some hours after the bullet
struck her in the back of the neck
aud is In a fair way to ultimatly
get well. Following the scenes of turmoil and riot yesterday, everything
was quiet   today.
The town council appointed over 500
special policemen to serve during the
night and in consequence everything
passed off peacubly. No crowds were
permitted to congregate on any of the
streets. General,I. P. S. Gobln, Lieutenant-Governor of the statu and commander of the Third Brigade, Pennsylvania National Guard, In command of the troops which arrived here
early this morning, made the state
ment that he would distribute the
soldiers between Shenandoah, St. Nicholas, Mabony City and other points
after be bad looked over the field.
Edwin Clarke, who was shot below
the heart, had a remarkable escape,
the bullet having been extracted and
he is improving today, lie had gone
into tho street to take his children
out of the way when he received the
wound. All the collieries around
Shenandoah, Lost Creek and William
Pcnn were closed down. Not a mine
in the region was working today. The
deputies who were with Sheriff Toole
last evening and did the shooting,
were all selected from the best citizens of Shenandoah.
und lie and divers aud experts from
Hong Kong made an examination of
all the Spanish ships and decided that
these three were worth saving-three
out of a dozen. They ' were raised
and temporarily repaired at Cavite.
The vessels proceeded under their own
steam to Hong Kong and had been
there tor some time undergoing repairs before Ilobson saw them. As a
matter of fact, I never claimed that
we sunk these ships. I reported that
we destroyed them, I did see with
my own eyes an eight-inch shell strike
the stern of the Keina 'Maria Christina. Admiral Montojo's flagship, and
that destroyed her. The statement
that the vessels were not much injured below the water line was probably
true. Evereyone knows that it is impossible for shells to do much execution below the water line or anything
but torpedoes to do much damage
there. A few inches of water is a
great protection. Armored ships are
not armored much below the water
line, tho water being protection
enough from a shell. 1 hardly think
it worth our while to pay much attention to this. Y'ou know it is human
naturo to depreciate what others have
done. Mr. Ilobson may not have been
quoted correctly or in full."

Owing to the wrecking of the
steamer Nelson, early yesterday morning near Midge Creek, the Canadian
Pacific is forced to change its regular
service on the Lake. The following
notice was issued'yesterday by W. F.
Anderson, travelling passenger agent
of the C. P.R. at Nelson: Commencing
with tomorrow the Canadian Pacific,
Nelson-Kaslo service will be temporarily withdrawn until further advised, and the public will please be governed accordingly. There will be no
boat leave Nelson for Kaslo at I
o'clock each afternoon until the Nelson is repaired.
Captain Gore and tlie wrecking
crew who went to the assistance of
the Nelson yesterday morning, returned to Nelsou at 7 o'clock this morning. The lowei part of the bow was
stove in and it is expected that it will
lie a week before the boat is ready for
service. Arrangements were being
made today to place the steamer on
the ways, so as to beach her at the local ship .yards. It is expected that
she will be hauled out tomorrow.
The amount of damage done is not
known but it will require an entire
new bow.
In temporarily repairing the steamer so i*s to bring her to Nelson,a bulk
head, or strong petition, was put in
just back of the damaged part, which
made the steamer quite safe to be
brought to Nelson by its own steam.
The crew arrived on the scene about
12:110 p. in. and worked continuously
until 8:1.1 last evening before the repairing was completed.
In speaking of the accident this
morning Captain Gore said that the
night was very dark and it would be
of little difficulty on such a night for
an accident to happen. When the
ship struck, many of the passengers
were thrown into a panic, and much
excitement prevailed for sometime.
Nearly all the passengers were
asleep, and when they were awakened
by the heavy jarr they rushed aboul
Ihe upper deok in thier sleeping attire. As quickly as the captain could
ascertain the situation of affairs and
learn that there was no danger, he
succeeded iu quieting tlie excited people   aboard.

The question of Oriental immigration is an old one in Hritish Columbia. Many years ago the white people of the Province became alarmed at
the prospect of being over-run by Chinese.and Governments at oitawa were
Importuned to adopt measures that
would cheek their invasion. It was
thought that a poll tax of lifty
dollars would have the effect of keeping the Immigration within bounds,
and no doubt it has had a vrry considerable Influence; but events have
shown that it has not served the purpose as fully as was desired, as fresh
batches of Chinese are continually arriving, and the situation has been
made more alarming by the addition
of shoals of Japanese. Whether the
danger is as great as apprehended is
al least doubtful enough to make the
question a debatable one; but there
has never been any doubt of the profound and general discontent with
which tlie invasion of these people
has been regarded by nearly all classes
in the Province, and this feeling has
found frequent expression in demands
for inure exclusive measures. At the
last general eleotion for the Dominion the leader of the Liberals was desired to declare how far he was prepared to go to keep out the Chinese
lie was then making a hot fight fo

anxious, of course, to gain as many
voles us possible, lie replied that the
question was not a live one in the
Fast, and that he would be entirely
governed in the matter by the wishes
of his supporters in Hritish Columbia. This was taken as an assurance
that if the Province sent down some
Liberal members and Sir Wilfrid
Laurier should emerge from tlie elections with a majority, the new Gov
eminent could be depended upon to
adopt whatever measures might berec
ommended by their Hritish Columbia
supporters. Ill this belief several con

of the Chinese.
Session after session passed, how
ever, and Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
his Government did nothing. In the
meantime Chinese anil Japanese came
pouring in. and white labor became
more alarmed than ever. It was not
until another election loomed in the
distance that the Premier remembered
bis promise. The lime was coming to
Ash for more votes, lie did not Intend
to Implement the pledge to be governed by his Hritish Columbia supporters:
but it was necessary to make a show
of Interest, and accordingly a measure
was passed to raise the poll tax from
lifty tu one hundred dollars. This
was absurdly Insufficient to cope with
tlie situation, but nothing more could
be obtained, .Meanwhile the campaign
has been in progress, and Ihe Premier
has made the rather  alarming discov
cry thai,    his need   of   votes is greater
than he   had at   lirst supposed.     It   is
necessary if possible to hold   his su]
port in Ibis Province, and to Ibis end
lie hastens to announce   that   a   Commission has been appointed to invesli
gate anil report on the whole question
of Chinese   immigration,    It is hoped
that this will tickle  the   people here
that il will conciliate ihe disaffected,
and win votes enough to bold the advantage be pained last election,
What the   ComlmSBlon  has to inves
tigate wc do not know, There is noth
ing doubtful   or   concealed   about the
question, so far as any one iu   llritisl
Columbia is  aware,   The Chinese an
coming in. and the   people   here want
them kept out.    If we   Investigate fo
a hundred years it   will  be ImpoBslbl
to discover more   than   this,   and it is
the skin and llesh and  bone   and marrow nf  Ihe    whole   question,     The lip-
jiiiintmenl of a Commission is u mere
trick, and the purpose of it is to make
votes. The Government arc no more
earnest in their intention to take
effective measures to abate the evil
than they have been any time these
four years past; but an election is on.
in.l tie- need rotes, and it is thought
that a Commission may fool the people here.     Perhaps it will.
Between Sir Wilfrid banner's policy of Parliamentary Federation and
Sir Charles Tupper'S of Imperial preferential trade there is a vast difference. Sir Charles made the following
reference In tlie subject iii accent
speech:  "Sir   Wilfrid    l.auricr's   pol-
oy was tn obtain representation in
the Imperial Parliament, This meant
ill the work of a national character
now done for Canada at Ottawa would
be transacted at Westminster; in other
words, Canada would abandon its
rights as a great self-governing Colony in roturn   for the privilege of be-
np taxed by the Imperial Parliament
to what the latter thought our popula-
111 ami resources would admit of.
No man will go further in Buppport-
{ British Interests than I will myself, but it urns! be done as a free act
of a free ami Independent people, Canada having received from the Crown
the concession of absolute right of
self-government, and Britain having
been deprived by legislation of the
power to levy a farthing of taxation
upon any BClfigoveming colony, I
would be a traitor to Canada; aye. 1
would be woise. I would be a traitor
to Britain and the dearest interests of
Britain, if I ever for a Single moment
would tolerate such an invasion of the
free government that Canada possesses, as Sir Wilfrid  Laurier   proposes."

Mr. Edward Make i^ in Canada���
ur was when last heard of���anil the
general elections are on in Great
Britain. I* the gentleman absenting
himself in the hope that his Longford constituents may select .some
other person? It would not be surprising to learn that the able, scrupulous, finely constituted Canadian had
grown tired of Irish politics as dished
up by Ihe Redmonds, tleulys, and
O'Briens of the National party, and
would welcome an escape that would
give him quiet enjoyment of his
briefs. Bui he voluntarily put his
hand to the plough, and if his constituents want him another term he
will cable his consent.
There is an every-day passenger service by the ('row's Nest route, but in
recently establishing a postal-car service it was arranged for six days only,
mail matter for the East being sent
on the seventh via Spokane. It would
not be characteristic of the Post olliee
Department if the service did not fall
short in some respect. It was. jUNt ;i>
easy to make it complete as to do
what has been done, but Mr. Mulock
evidently acts on the belief that completeness in Southern Iiritish Columbia would bo the joy that killed.
In respect to Some of tlie Manitoba
constituencies it is discovered that the
voters' list.-- as printed at Ottawa do
not correspond with the boundaries
as established by law. This may be
as innocent a discrepancy as the
Queen's Printer declares it to be in a
letter published he TOW 1 th I but it is
one that will bear watching, and as it
extends to constituencies in Hritish
Columbia it will be well if an eye be
kept on the preparation of the lists
for use in this Province.
If there were anything to invesi-
gate, and if the Premier were as sincere as he professes to be. that. Com-
mlssion t.i Inquire into the question
of Chinese immigration would have
been appointed four years ago. That
it was not was owing to the one simple fact that there was no immediate
need of votes.

A quantity of now novels have ap-
peared during tho last week, but with
the solitary exception of Mr. Hop-
kin's ������Silent Hate" they are hopeless! v bad. Apparently the publishers, during a season like the present,
when hartlly any novel has a chance
of success, gloomily decide to put upon the market the very worst trash
that they have iu their possession.
The idea is not n had one. By publishing their worst Looks in the
worst season they can content themselves with Issuing a very small edition of each,knowing that the chances
of selling: more than a hundred or so
copies are practically nothing. Then
when the author receives hid lirst accounts of sales he can console himself
liy saying that the failure of the book
was due lo tlie season during which it
was published, Thus both publisher
and authors can find some grains of
comfort in the situation. If this is
the true explanation of the sudden
shower of wretched nnd unreaduble
novels which has descended upon us
tala week it shows Hint gleams of Intelligence can lie found even among-
continued and habitual pulbi&htrs,

The person calling herself "Ouida"
ought lu he pleased with the seriousness with which her book of so-called
critical studies has been received. The
press as a rule has treated it as if It
had been written by some one who by
temperament and accomplishments
vim capable of writing criticism.
There is a great deal of sharp, shrew-
llnabuse of various persona In the
boos but of real, intelligent, temperate crilicism I have not found a trace,
locall the hook "Critical Studies" is
as mil of place as it would lie to call
Mr. Bryan's speeches "statesmanship. ''

Mr. Tighe Hopkins has bit upon a
sew idea In his "Silent Gate." Nobody, ao far as I remember, has written an entire booh of prison stories.
Certainly no one 1ms given us such an
entirely fresh Incarnation of criminal
life as has Mr. Hopkins in his "Turkey"   the boy   who   is will make the
forti  of the "Silent Gate."   The
Btoi'us contained In the volume are
'cry unequal. Some of them, like the
one in which the delightful Turkey
appears, arc to iny mind among the

exile, where he went after the collapse

Soldier anil a Communist. I have never seen Cluaeret's Memoirs, but, as 1
have said, they ought to be interesting, and the fact that they exasperated Cluaeret's old Radical friends suggests that he must have told some un-
pleasaut truths about them.���W.L.A1-

Review.
CANADIAN    PROGRESS   ON    EM-
PIBE  LINKS.
"Our polioy is the policy that in
IS71I we put upon the statute book, a
policy declaring that we would afford
tilting protection to every Canadian
industry, and to Canadian labor. (Applause.) We stand by that policy today, in all its integrity, as we stood
by It then.
'������We consider it the bounden duty
of men charged with the administration of public affairs ill Canada to
look above all at that which will
make our country great and prosperous, and to steadily carry it out in a
way that will achieve for the country
that which this policy has done In
the past.     (Applause.)
���We are ready to give fair and
scjuare terms of 'mutual preference to
England, as a means of binding this
Empire together, and uniting its outlying portions to the Mother Land, as
nothing else can do; but standing in
the position of the Government of the
country, charged with the important
duty of protecting that which Is the
very foundation of a country's greatness, the labor of the country, I say
that we are bound to protect it, and
to furnish means for carrying out and
developing   the   great   industries    of
Canada,
������When people talk to me of what
Sir Wilfrid l.nuriei's preferential
trade has done to obtain the favor of
England,   I say   that     In   one   hour,
when this Government was compelled
to dleharge its duty In sending a contingent to South Africa, more was
done for the unity of the Empire and
to raise Canada in the estimation nol
only of the Empire but of the eiivll/,-
nd world, than In any amount of Sir
Wilfrid l.ntirier's   preferential   trade.
���'1 say that I shall take up tins
question ami negotiate n mutual preference that will promote the progress
and development of Canada, and at
the same time Strengthen the ties Hint
bind the colonics to the great cuntro
of the Empire.
"Hut I do not hesitate to say that
wc are not willing to take the bread
out of the mouths of our own children
to feed those of any other country In
the world." (t)reat cheering.)���Sir
Charles Tupper at Montreal.
AKOUT CAPE NOME.
William I). Benson, of Montana, is
another man who calls Cape Nome a
snare and delusion says the Spokesman-Review, He went up to Nome in
June,and no more disgusted man than
he returned at the end of August.
lie was in town yesterday, and stated
that on tlie day he left there were fi, -
Olio idle men at Nome, and the beach
was worked out. He went north on
the Qarronne, with 800 other people,
nnd he relates that the people nealy
went crazy when they landed, lie
saw one old couple commence to
Bcratch witli their hands in the beach
directly they landed. He asked the
old lady���she was 111)���wtiat she was
looking for.and she answered that she
intended to have her share of the
nuggets which the Seattle papers talked such a lot about. Several men were
killed during his stay north, lie
wtnessed a very sad natural death.
lle was out prospecting with a party
in the hills. As they were passing a
tent a man asked them for brandy.
They entered the tent and saw a dying
man lying on the bunk'. He asked one
of them to get a letter from bis vest
pocket and to read it aloud. It ran
somewhat as follows: "My Hoy Jim-
niie: Let the past be forgotten. 1
know you have suffered up there thousands iif miles away from home and
those you love and love you. You
have been freely forgiven and all is
forgotten. Aud, .liinmle, we want
you home. Hemember when you do
eoine that the gate will be open and
your gray-haired old mother will be
only too glad to take her boy in her
arms once more. We wait for you
.Ihnmie ' Uttering the wordB "forgiven, forgotten, oh! my mother!"
Jimmie passed to the great beyond.
Mr. Benson Bays there is some rich
ground in the district, such as that on
Anvill, Qlaolr and Dexter Creeks, but
four-fifths of the best claims are tied
up by litigation, being claimed by
different parties. The law is unjust,
he claims, in that it allows a man to
stake claims for himself, friends and
his relatives.. Morever, these claims
can be held for a year without any
work being done upon them, and If
the man Is first on the ground next
year he can relocate.

id Spokane Fair.
.lu'U' Forln   wants   to   arrange an
International golf 1 lesi to   be play-
nl in Spokane during the fair. The
following from the Spokane Chronicle
i-, self-explanatory:
The following letter lias just been
received by P. YV. Bobbett, which explains itself. Tho wording of the
communication is practically a challenge to the v'"lf lovers of ibis city to
arrange for a meeting of those of I his
state anil the golfers across thu line.
It is  Intended that   this   lie done   so
thai they will be able i me to  the
fair and en joy their tournament at the
slime timo :
"Nelson, Sept. IT. -F, W. liolili.il.
Esq., Spokane; Wash.���Dear sir: I
have heen lulluiitf j^olf with :i number
of friends. How does the Idea of an
International match during the Spokane exposition Btrlke vou.' Talk It
over with your golf enthusiasts, put
up any Wind of a trophy and I will
try nnd get up a train of Britishers
that will either pluck the feathers
from your bald headed eagle or you
can twist their lion's tail, or il may
be a little of both. Say the see.mil
week in October, when I think we can
gel a train of live or six players, who
have only past experience,for practice
in the mountain is out of the ques-

When Mr. Ilawley, the manager of
the exposition, was asked what would

would do anything in his power to advertise tlie affair in connection with
theexposil ion.
Henry lloyt, who is one of the enthusiastic golfers of this eity, said
thai he did not know just what the
others thought concerning the proposition, hut he believed thai arrangements could bo made to put up a suitable cup or Bomething of that kind
which could be taken by tlie victorious party ami held until the other
club won it back. It is probable that
the golfers will decide upon this before tomorrow evening.
ANOTHER DIVIDEND PAYER,
The Athabasca Will Pay a Shilling a
Share Next Month.
Tlie Athabasca Hold Mine, Limited,
yesterday issued a notice to the effect
that tin mpany had declared a dividend   "f    five    per   eenl.     Tile    notice
was  iBsucd   by   Manager   lv    Nelson
Fell, and is as follows:
Tho directors of   tins company bave
declared a dividend of one Bhillllng
per sharr. or five per cent on the capital stock of the company, payable on
the firBt of  October  proxii     Under
tin- scheme of reconstruction lately
carried out. the second call of one
shilling per share (originally fixed
for the lstli September and subsequently  postponed) Is due on October
[������th proximo. In the cast- of the
Canadian'shareholders, and iu order
to save them unnecessary trouble, the
following plan will be adopted: (in
all shares on which only the lirst call
has been paid tlie receipt for Becond
eall will be sent to the owners of the
shares as registered in the company's
books as soon after the firsl of October oa possible, on all shares on which

the dividend will !����� paid by bank
check to the registered owners of
such shares.
Adding the Athabasca to tlie list of
Hritish Columbia dividend paying
properties in a matter of great Importance In N'.'lson.aiid will give one more
reason why Investors should direel
their attention towards the Nelson
mining district. There are excellent
prospects of the mine continuing to
pay dividends as the development
work has been very encouraging.

very Btrong, but the holders are not

The fallowing circular, referring to
the matter of voters' lists, has heen
issued by the Queen's Printer at Ottawa :
Queen's Printer's Ottice,
Ottawa, Sept. 6, 1900.
Sir,���As there appears to be in some
place a, misconception concerning the
voter's lists in their relation to territorial electoral divisions, I forwarded
today 90 copies of tlie map of your
electoral district, showing is boundaries under the existing Dominion law.
The lists which have been printed are
the Provincial lists as last revised.
There is no authority existing to
change those lists in case of doubt, or
alter them in any way, so that while
the territorial electoral divisions remain the same as under the old aet,
polling subdivisions within those Units and the voters who vote in them
are those appearing on tlie Provincial
lists. It happens that in many instances, more especially in Manitoba
and British Columbia (where changes
are rapid) that the territorial electoral divisions of the Province do not
coincide with those for tlie Dominion, and nothing but exact local
knowledge could disentangle them.
There is no officer, however, who is
authorized to disentangle the lists in
such cases; even if he could have
sufficient local knowldegeto do it cor-
eetly. It would pactically amount to
a revision of the district affected, and
might lead to serious complications at
the time of an election.
Under these cicrumstanees, the only
way open was to print the lists as
they were received ; leaving to the returning officer the duty of obtaining
from the clerk of the munieipalty or
the legal custodian of the Provincial
voters' lists a corrected list iu those
few cases where a Provincial polling
division embraces parts of two or
three electoral districts.
The chief difficulties in this respect
have arisen in Manitoba and Hritish
Columbia. the newer territories.
There are constituencies also in Ontario where municipalities are divided and are to a smaller extent in the
same position. In Quebec there are
very few discrepancies and there are
none in the Maritime Provinces. 1
send you a copy of the Franchise and
Election Acts for the purpose of calling your attention to certain provisions of the law,  viz:
1. That the polling subdivisions are
to be the Provincial polling subdivisions.
3, That lists are to be the Provincial lists.
:i. These lists are sent by the Provincial officers to thu clerk of the
Crown in chancery.
1. Tlie clerk of the Crown in chancery is to send them to the Queen's
printer to be printed.
5. There is no officer at Ottawa
authorized to make changes in these.
When whole municipalities pass from
one to another it is possible in the
older Provinces, but not when the
units are divided.
<*>. That under Section 8 (Franchise
Act) the duty of dividing the lists
when necessary and of procuring such
other lists as are requisite to cover
the territory specified by the Dominion law is imposed on the returning
officer; and Section 2'J of the Dominion Election Act directs the returning
officer forthwith after the receipt of
the writ to obtain such Provincial
voters' lists, certified copies thereof
or extracts therefrom as he requires
in addition to the lists supplied by
the clerk of the Crown in chancery.
I beg also to call your attention to
the fact that these lists have not the
absolute finality of the lists under
the old law. which were compiled by
local Dominion officers specially commissioned foi that purpose. The voters' lists now to be used are those that
may be in force under the law of the
Province for Provincial elections tit)
days before the nomination day. They
can, if necessary, be had from tlie
proper local custodian and reference
can always be made to them in each
locality. ' S. E, DAWSON.

company representing the Sunset
group situated in Whitewater Kasin,
with inducing him (Davies) to purchase 11,000 shares of stock, upon the
