Ninth Year
Fill DISCUSSION OF
THE WO BY-LAWS
Two Sessions of City Council
To-Day.
ALL DISPUTES SETTLED
��2 per 1,000 cubic fe��t. The oompany
iilsn guaranteed to supply tlie muniei-
pality with gus for power tit the into of
$1 per 1,000 feet.
The oompany also engages tn commence work within 60 days of tlio passing of thn bylaw, to supply gas to all
who want it in six months, anil further to expend the sum of {100,000 on
their works during the next two
years.
Another important proviso is thnt
when tlie protits on the gas supplied to
the City through tin' mams exceeds If)
per cent, the Council shall lio entitled
to demand a reduction in the price of
gas. Tlio franchise is an exclusive one
for 2b years, but after 10 yours the
City is allowed to take over (lie business of the company at  a  valuation.
Terms of Street Railway and Gas luid
Coke Franchises Are Now
Arranged*
The City Council have had an anxious and busy time the last fow days
in the consideration of the inipoitant
fratieliises sought by the Street Kail-
way Oompany and tlie Gas and Coke
Supply syudicato represented hy Dr.
Doolittle. Their labors are now, however, practically over as tho draft of
the two by law3 was yesterday approved
Dy the various contracting parties,
and all points of difference were
smoothed away. In the case of the
street railway company a certain
amount of give-and-take was needed,
but the City Fathers have succeeded
in framing a bylaw which will compare favorably with many granted by
larger cities than Nelsou.
The Council meet yesterday afternoon jit 4 o'clock aud immediately resolved itself into a committee of tbo
vvholo with Aid. Beer in the chair.
There were also present Mayor Neclands, Aid. Thomson, Fletcher, Kirkpatrick and MoKillop, the City solicitor, the City engineer ami Messrs. F.
W. Poters and W. A. Maodonald, Q,
O., representing tho streot railway
The first discussion arose over a clause
the Oity solicitor hid drafted aud
which Aid. Fletcher proposed to introduce. This was to tho effect that
before the uew lines or extensions of
the existing system cuulu l*e openneil
the company must obtain a certificate
fiom tho City engineer that tney hud
been constructed to his satisfaction.
Aid. Thomson agree*! with Aid.
Fletcher. Mr. \V. A. Maodonald objected on the ground tnat it placed the
company at the mercy of the City engineer. Eventually the clause was
agreed to after an amendment iiad been
added providing for an appeal from the
dictum of the engineer.
Mayor Neclands then drew attention to the clause which providos that
the company lose their charter if they
cease running a daily service for three
mouths. He thought that 10 davs was
ample timo. Under this clause tho
comp'iuy might shut down the greater
part of the winter The clauso was
amended to read two months, the
Mayor dissenting   to tlio motion,
The clause regulating what tho com-
pauyaro entitled to charge remains as it
was. So the company can collect 10
cent fares, until the town reaches a
population of 12,000 when the City
Council will have the power to amend
this and many other clauses. The sole
exceptions to this are school children,
nud bona fide workmen between the
hours of 6180 and ?:80 a. in., and (! p.
ni., and 7 :30 p. m., who can ride for
five cents.
Alderman Fletcher wished to insert
n clause specifically rendering the
company liable tor bridge accidents.
There is already a clauso in tho bylaw
under which the company must "indemnify the City for accidents arising from the construction and operation of their tramway," and tho Council wero of opinion this covered the
case, so Aid. Fletcher's amendment
was dropped. Aid. Fletcher wished
the City Engineer's dictum to be final
in minor technical niatterH. He
thought this would simplify tho operating of the bylaw. One of the clauses
which he wished to bring under this
was that which provided for the repairing of the lines being to tho satisfaction of the City Engineer. Mr.
Macdonald objected strongly to there
being no appeal from his decision,
nnd eventually the clauso was Amended
to permit of the oompany Appealing to
the Board of Arbitrators.
This comprised the chief alterations
made, and when tho Council rose at (I
p. m., the bylaw was in shape for tho
third reading. This morning Mr. P.
E. Wilson and W. A. Macdonald will j
go over the bylaw together to ensure |
that the wording of thoir respective
drafts nre identical,nnd then the bylaw
will he typo written and presented to
the Council this afternoon for its
third reading.
GAS FRANCHISE.
At 8 p. rn. the Oouncil reassembled |
to consider the by law granting Dr.
Dcolttle's clients a gas and coke franchise. The bylaw had already beon
considered, aud but few alterations
were made. Dr. Doolittle showed
himBelf quite amenable to the wishes |
of the Council, so the various clauses j
gave rise to no friction and little
debate. The chiof nlteratioun mado
was in prioe tho company may charge
for gas which or lighting purposes
wns fixed at $3 per 1,000 cubic feet.
This clause was so amended as to givo
the Council control of the price
charged, providing that it should not exceed |8 p*;r 1,000 feet nor he less than
$2 without tho consent of the company. The piioo of gas for oooking,
heating  aid  power  is not  to oxoeed

Different Towers Preparing   to  Honor
His Homeward Trip.
Washington, May 14.���Admiral
Dewey's coming by way of the Medi-
teranean is likely to give occasion for
distinguished honors from the navies
of Europe, most' of them being represented by extensive squadrons m those
waters and some of them having their
chief naval stations at Mediterranean
ports. Already Ambassador Oambon,
of France, has called the attention
of the authorities at Paris to tlio return
of Admiral Uewey by way of the
Mediterranean and the probable sailing
of his flagship past the French naval
ports in lAgiers. These are opposite
the British possessions of Gibraltar
and Malta at, the entrance of tho Mediterranean, and aro easy and natural
stopping places along lhat route. It
is hiu'dlj expeoted that the admiral
will touch at. Toulon, tlio great naval
depot of Franco. At the ports of
French Algiers he will bo accorded
every honor due uot only to his rank,
but to the universal esteem in which
he is held by the naval fraternity.
Tho British authorities havo taken
no steps thus far t'l have tho admiral
stop at British ports, but it was stated
today by oue ot the British ollicials
that Dewey wonld be assured a most
enthusiastic greeting if no stopped nt
any British station, and that undoubtedly steps would be taken to induce Iii tn to touch nt Plymouth and
Portsmouth, the southern naval depots
of England, if there was uny prospect
of his acceptance, In any event it
is said the admiral was quite likely
to stop at Malta und Gibraltar, as
these are the usual coaling places, aud
this would givo opportunity for an expression of British esteem for him.
In the eveut tnat the admiral could
be induced to slop in England en
route homo, it is said he probably
would be met at Aden or Port Said
by it British escort.

Buffalo, May 1*1.���The sltii.e situation among the dockB tonight is more
serious than that at any time since the
opening of navigation. When the
strikinggrain shovellers reported at the
docks this morning for work under
the agreement which had been signed
yesterday, and which was thought had
satisfactorily settled tbo frouble, tho
men found a number of men already
at work there. These men the contractors refused to discharge and the
graiu shovellers refused to work with
them   and tho   trouble was  renevvred,
Tonight not only aro the gram shov-
elers out, but tho freight handlers,
coal heavers, men who load the oro
boats, tho timekeepers and machinists
employed iu the elevators and freight
houses, and in fact every man or boy
employed in any capacity on the docks
have quit work, and the commerce of
tbe port is tied up as tight as if a Chinese wall hail been built around it.
Not a bushel of grain or package of
freight or a pound of coal is being
handled and vesselmen are in despair.
Thirty or forty boats loaded with
grain that have been in the harbor for
a week or more are still thore ind
likely to remain there for some time.
The feeling between the strikers and
the contractors is much more bitter
than over before and tonight cases of
assault on men who have been working are being reported with alarming
frequency.
Vatican Dot'3 Not Like the Action of the
Netherlands in Not Issuing   an
Invitation to It,
FOR   THE     P^iRIS   EXPOSITION.
Rules Which   Must   Ko  Observed   By
all   Intending   Exhibitors.
The following rules governing the
character of specimens intended to be
exhibited, and the conditions with re-
Kurd to their shipment hnve been is-
suod, and will bo of interest to intending exhibitors:
Because of tbe restricted space available for Canadian exhibits at the forthcoming exhibition iu Paris, single
mineral specimens should not exceed
one foot in greatest diameter, Many
specimens may advantageously be
made much smallor in size, hut in the
caso of ores, etc., whore an exhibit is
composed of a number of fragments
enough of thoso should generally be
seut tn fill a box from six inches to one
foot cube In regard to larger specimens
than thoso above indicated, which it
mav in some cases be desirable to exhibit special applicaiton should bo
made.
The collection of mineral substances,
lo bo made as far as possible through local agency iu tho several Provinces,
will be taken over, catalogued and at ni
limed in a general collection for the
Dominion by the Geological Survey
of Oanada,hut the names and addresses
of exhibitors or owners of properties
will in all cases appear iu the catalogue with the specimens. In the caso
of exhibits of this class, when accepted at the place of origin, ordinary
freight charges will be paid to Ottawa,
and if approved for exhibition, all
charges of transportation thenco to
Paris and of installation aud supervision at Paris. The right is, however,
reserved to reject duplicate specimens
or any other material judged to be
unsuitable for exhibition.
If it should be desired, in particular
instances, to exhibit, groups of products or series of specimens in special
show-cases or fittings supplied at the
expense of the exhibitor, it mny lie
possible to accord the necessary space
for this. In such instances notice
should ho given immediately, when
the ordinary forms of application fm
space and other information will be
famished,
It will greatly facilitate the compilation of a catalogue of tho Canadian
minerals, if full details are sent in
with the several specimens, in riyard
to prices, markets, uses, nnnlyses or
tests, ec. Such notes should be enter
nd in the column beaded "Remarks."

The Hague, May 16.���It is under
stood that American aud British delegates are meeting with some success in
i tbeir efforts to get the question of international arbitration whioh is now
the eighth article of the programme,
advanced to the first place.
Acting upon an order from the Papal
Secretary if State, Cardinal Ramolln,
Papal internuncio left Tho Hague,
today as a protest ngninst the omission
of the Governmeut of the N therlands
acting on behalf of Russia to invite the
Vatican to send a representative.
Vienna, May IB.���Muoh attention
has been attracted by the publication
of n long letter addressed to the Baroness Suttner by Professor Bloch, to
whose well known "War of the Future, "the inception of the Czar's peace
project is believed have beon duo.
Tho letter is made public ou tho evo of
the meeting of tho conference at The
Hague with tho purpose, Professor
Bloch contends, of affecting the deliberations of the conference,
"Goverments and privileged classes"
he says, ' are making every effort to
retard (he peace movement, while political economists, savants and the
masses generally approve the conference. Diplomats and military powers also oppose it. "
He thus declares that the Czar's idea
will not bo represented at. the conference. In these circumstances aud as a
means uf counteracting nuy attempt
to paralzye the action of the Czar Professor Bloch suggests that it should be
decided to order n pieliminary inquiry
into tbe two following question, first,
whether the time has not actually arrived when war would result in mutual destruction of thn combatants,
and second, whethor the existing balance of power would not remain tlie
same alter n war, with the difference
that it. would bo no longer possible to
prevent a Socialistic movement from
leading ti a catastrophe.

Iu so doing, the Russian representative expressed Hie Czar's gratitude for
th hospitality extended to tho delegates. The peace ooiitcrcnoo will hold
its first, sitting at 2 o'clock Thursday
afternoon next.
London, May 15.���Tbe Rnmo cone
spnndont of tiie Times says: "Siguor Ciispi writes to the Nneva Antolgi
that the arguments of the Vatican in
favor of representation at The Hague
are untenable, as the Pope has neither
army nor tleflt.

A FAMOUS CRITIC DIES.
Paris, May 15. ���M. Francisco Sarcey
the famous drunnttie critic died today
in his 71st year.
They Conferred With tho Hon. J. Fied
Humo Yesterday.
Several members of tbo South Kootenay Board of Trade met yesterday in
the oflice of Mr. F. W. Swannell, sec-
rctary of the Board, to confer with
him on several  matters, among those
present being President of the Board
.1. Rodorick Robertson, Secretary F.
W. Swannell and Messrs. H. E. (Irons-
daile, A. E. Hodgins, T. G. Proctor,
.1. A. Turner. W. A. Maeilnnahl, ami
J. J. Campbell, who, though not a
member was present by special invitation. The question of the mineral exhibit to bo sent from here  to the Paris
Exhibition was first broached and Mr,
Hume stated that the matter hud been
pluccd in tbe hands of Mt. Robertson,
tho Provincial Mineralogist, nnd that
he would soon be hero to make the necessary arrangements. There had been
some delay in tho matter as the Pro
vincial Government had been negotiating with the   Dominion  Government
! to get the space originally allotted to
British Columbia increased, but with-
Out success.    Tho Council of the Board
| of   Trade  unanimously  rocomineuded
Mr. P. M. Obadhourn as the most suitable person to collect tlio exhibit to be
sent from this division.
The meeting then followed the linn
of the (.'ity Council by endorsing tho
application of the local  fire insuranoe
! agents for (lie   appointiueiint of ull In-
I specter who would reside in theKoote-
I nays.
At ibis juncture, a Miner reporter
sought admission,    and  although   the
I matters discussed were all of publio interest, he wns requested   to   withdraw,
in deference ehictlv, it is understood to
I the wishes of Mr.  Hume, wbn objected
to talking tn or before reporters,
A full report of what followed cannot, therefore, be given, but as far as
could be gathered from these who
wore present Mr. Hume was questioned
as to the Statements made by .Mr.
Wilks, and published in the last issue
of Tho Miner, that Mr. Hume hail
pledged himself to the eight hour bill
before his recent election. i\n\ Hume
replied that he had net seen the article
in question, so a copy of The Miner
was procured, but Mr. Hume did uot
give a specific denial of that statement.
In fact he appears to have been as reticent as possible, and to have made no
definite statements about anything.
Ho is indeed reported to have said
that the miuo owners would not havo
found themselves in their present predicament had there not been a protest
against his last election, but he aftei.
wards sought to withdraw that re- '
mark. For the reason above stated,
.The Miner cannot give its readers a
satisfactory report of the proceedings, *
but the impression left on the minds
of his hearers was that at the time of
tho Wilks episode, he considered his [
releotion a paramount consideration.
In this  connection it mny be stated, j
that    shortly   after    the   meeting   a*
Miner reporter asked Mr. Humo if   lie |
bnd  anything   to  say with regard   to i
Mr.     Wilks'    remarks,    He    replied
that his attention had only been drawn
to the article a shoit   time before, and
that he bad not had an  opportunity of
perusing it carefully.   He wished  to
do so. and he also wished to see Mr.
Wilks. and then bo would make a
statement should he deem it advisable
to do so.

State for the Colonies. Mr. Joseph
Chamberlain, lind a conference today.
OU the subject of tlie proposed Pacific
cable with Enron Strathcona and
Mount Royal, the High Commissioner
of Oanada, and other colonial agents
who presented certain modifications
of the original proposals, Mr. Cham
beilain promised tbat they should receive the best consideration.
Replying iu the House of Lords to
the Earl of Aberdeen, fotmer Governor-General of Canada, who urged the
importance of the imperial and colonial Governments reaching au understanding with reference to the Pacific
Cable, the Earl of S.-lboruo, uuder Sec-
retnry cf state for tlie Colonies, said
that her Majesty's Government was
perfectly prepared to reviow the
whole matter in the light of nny new
representations that tho colonies might
make, with a sincere desire to arrive
at a decision satisfactory to all the
Governments that were concerned,
During the course of his remarks,
the Earl of Selhnriie assured tbo house
that there was uo intenitnii upon the
part of tbo Government to throw cold
vu'er upon a matter ot such great
public interest, not was there nny idea
of   being     nngrnc ous.    He   express) d
surprise ut the laid that exoeption bad
hetill taken In the Government's assertion t'-uit tbe cable was mere important
tn Canada anil Australia than to the
United Kingdom, explaining that this
was not incompatible with the view-
that it wus of great importance to
the Empire ns it might bo perfectly
tine that such a project might be of
great Imperial interest and importance In specilic portions of the Empire.
Oontinuing, the Under Secretary
said be iliO not mink that anyone conversant with tho linmieinl pnrt of tbe
neuter would regard the Government's
offer as being ungenerous, because it
offered tu share tbe burdens without
demanding a share of the profits. The
���.���nm nf $100,000 was named because it
sietned to be the outside limit on tbo
proportion      of   the     live-eighteenths,
whioh Great Britain could be culled
npnn to pay. The conditions proposed, he explained, were merely such ns
ibe experience of n post olllco nnd
treasury suggest** 1 as being the most
likely in secure elbciency.
If the colonies bad any objection to
urge against the   form nf   the   British
proposals, the Government was perfectly prepared to review the whole
matter with a sincere desire to arrivo
at a decision which would bu satisfactory tn all eoneornoil.
Lord Tweedinnutb, Liberal, supported the Earl of Aberdeen in thinking thnt the conditions were unduly
stringent.

ARTFUL  MR. HUME.
Mr.   Wilks  places   Mr,   Humo  in   a
light so unpleasant as to create a   very
painful impression.    At  his last   election   the  member   for  Nelson was secretly pledged to support an eight-houi
day, and   it was   he   who   introduced
the    amendment  thnt    made    eight
hours tlm mining day of the Proviuce.
This was a chaugo amounting to a revolution in the   mining   industry,   yet
Mr. Hume  was careful to conceal this
policy aud his intentions with   respect
to it from the public   knowledge.    He
went through it campaign   in  the Nelson   Riding,   holding     meetings   and
making speeches   to   tho  electors, defending  and    explaining    what    the
Governmeut of which ho wns a   member had done and intended  to do;  but
not one word was said  of  a   proposed
law to shorten the hours   of  labor  in
metalliferous    mines   by   twenty   per
cent.    His is   a  mining   constituency
in a double   sense.    The   mining   industry is the largest  and most important in it, and all   other   interests   are
more or less depending on it for   their
own success.    Whatever affect? the industry itself affects every class and interest in   the   Riding.    A   gentleman
who has   the   intelligence   to  qualify
him for   a Ministerial   position   must
have had perception enough to seo this
and comprehension  enough   to understand all it meant.    Yet  not one word
did he sny of legislation  that   was   to
produce a change of such consequence,
but  secretiy   pledged   himself to support it in order to obtain tbe votes of a
certain olass.
This puts Mr. Hume in a very bad
light. It is tho equivalent of demonstrating that he secured his election
by a piece of deception. He may deny
Mr. Wilks' story, but it is too circumstantially related to have any doubt of
its truth. Mr. Wilks could scarcely
forget a call over the telephone to
come to Nelsou to help in the election,
or the conversation in connection with
it of which the subjoct was a matter
of such very grave importance. And
arrived here, it was natural he should
wish to have the understanding repeated when the two men met. Mr. Wilks
must have not only a very treachorous
hut very distorted memory, if in this
matter ho hns misrepresented tho position tnkon by Mr. Hume. There is
no reason to doubt that Mr. Hume was
socrotly pledged to the eight-hour law.
If he hnd come out openly in support
of it he would have been nothing more
than exercising his right of judgment,
The law may he a just nnd reasonable
one, but in any ease it wus Mr.
Hume's undoubted privilege to advocate it if he desired. He was not
frank enough for this, however, aud
as an aggravation of the first deception
he has pretendod to the mine owners
since that he did not regard it with
favor. Wo aro afraid Mr. Wilks has
gono n long way in destroying the
public respect for Mr. Hume's character nnd tho public confidence in his
Integrity ns their representative.
Tho deception practised upon the
Nelson Riding was n fitting prelude
to the manlier in which the legislation was put through the House.
Thore was no notion of making such
an important alteration in the law;
it, was passed In a slim House lute nt
night, nnd the public had no knowledge of it until it was all over nnd done
with. Thut is the feature of it thnt is
most object ionnbln. If the purpose
had been published, and all who woro
directly concerned hud been given au
opportunity to express their views respecting it. tho final determination of
the Houso would havo been aocopted
without, protest or murmur, As it is
the mine owners, without warning of
any kind, are confronted with a situ
ation for whieh no preparation had been
made. ThiH is a view of it which the
working miners may fairly be oxpected
to consider. Tho Legislature has given
them a shorter day, much to the surprise of many of themselves, no doubt:
it is for thorn to consider, calmly aid
reasonnbly, whothor nnder the new
conditions so suddenly crentnd thoy
should not regard tho position of the
mine owners, and go a good half of tho
wny in nu effort to compromise the
difference that has so unexpectedly
presented itself.
Something new in the way of Expositions is   being held   in  London.    In
parts of the world there are many who
nre just beginning   to  renlise the  faot
thnt advertising is tin essential feature
of auy business enterprise; in England
they   are so ndvnuced   in  their education in this respect that they are hold-
ioojing    an   "Advertisers'   Exhibition,"
-which is revealing to   the  publio, according to   The London   Daily  News,
"the vast amount  of system   there   is
in   the   modern art   of   advertising."
All tho   leading   Loudon   Dailies   express their admiration of the novel exhibit.    The Times  says:   "Specimens
of  overy   menus  of    making   niodost
merit known to the public may be seen
and realised in the  exhibition,   which
cannot  fail   to   interest all classes   to
whom advertising is  a business neces
sity. "   That is tho word thnt expresses
it���business necessity.
Wall Papers
Complnints in regurd to school matters are as prevalent as typhoid ; we
hear of them everywhere. At Fernie
they are of long standing, aud apparently no nearer satisfactory settlement
than when first made. The Free Press
of that place savs: "Hon. Joseph
Martin, Attorney-General, writes us
that 'he' is sorry 'he' was not informed'before the estimates were brought
down' that more than two thousand
dollars would be required for school
purposes in Fernie. Mr. Martin was
told time nnd agniu even before the
House met that there were over one
hundred and thirty children of schoo
age in town. He will have to find
some better excuse than this for this
flagrant neglect of the needs of the Deo-
ple."

Sage Eo-.s Not Think  it Any Disgrace
to Die Rich.
New York, May l.-i.���Russel Sage
has expressed his antagonism to Andrew Carnegie's statement that a man
who dies enormously rich dies disgraced. Mr. Sage, who is reported to
be worth something like $100,000,000
and who is more than SO yenrs of ngo,
declnres, on tho contrary, that it is
an honor to a man to die rich. Mr.
Sngo says : "I de not continue in hus-
iness now to make more money. I
have mnny interests, nnd devote all
my time to managing them nnd protecting them. In keeping together thnt
property I protect the public welfnre
nud set nu example for the voung man
of todny. Mr. Carnegie is'to be oom-
mended for giving away to worthy
causes millions of dollars. He take's
great interest in such matters and
does a lot of good. I do not liko to
oviticiso Mr. Carnegie, but I do not
think that a man who has thrown awnv
his money and dies poor should
have the respect cif the community. 1
think it is, if anything, an houor to
die rich."

LAW   TO   131'*   PUT   TO A   TEST.
Wardner, Idaho, May 15.���The crisis
in the labor troubles here will commence on Thursday of this week.
Should tin* period pass over quietly no
more outbreaks (if lawlessness need be
looked fur during the continuance of
military rule. On the other hand
should there be anv clash this week
between the soldiers and the lawless
element in the union, it is impossible to tell what bloodshed may ooonr.
Thursday is the last day allowed nnder the recent proclamation for working miners to apply for permits to remain in underground employment, On
lhat day the inspection of tho mines
all over the Ooeur d'Alcne will commence, it will be a rigid examination
and it will be conducted both by the
military und the civil authorities.
Kvcry mine whiob is on that duv employing men without permits will be
summarily closed, its pump drawn and
guards placed over it.
If yon see it in Tho Miner's  Spocial

THE COMINQ BiLL
GREAT PREPARATIONS ARE BEING
MADE,
What Is Being Done to Make the Library
Ball on Fri'lay Night the Event
of  the   Season
Maritime Provinces and points onst to
Montreal, and also formemheru coming
from poiuis west to Revelstoke. Tlio
railway are showing overy disposition
I to make ihesn rates satisfactory, nnd
a farther annotinnement regarding
tliem will bu made in a second circular. Arrangements uro also beini*
marlo for special rates to points west
of Revelstoke, should uny ot the eastern members desire to visit mines
and mineral centres while out there.
We are not now in a postion to stale
these extra rates delintely, bat we have
every assurance that they will not
exceed one half tlm regular rates.
Tho coming Library Ball promises
to bo one of the best dances ever held
in Nelsou. Thn object for which it
is to be hold, tbo improvement of the
Kelson Public Library, is one that appeals to all, for tbo Rood influence on
a City of a public library is so well
known that it is soaroely necessary to
mention among its other great advantages the Rreat assistance it is ns 1111
education of youth, as well as of
adults. In wet or cold weather when
nothing else is available as a means
of passing the time tho library is
invaluable The advantages of having books of refeience over to one's
hand, also, as well as all the latest literature is nn inestimable benefit to all,
be they young or old, ricli or poor.
A public library does more to create
a taste for literature than almost all
other innflenoes put together.
Then ns to the dance itself, all the
members ot the various committees,
are working with might nnd main tn
see that Iheir department shall bn perfect, and ns all are pulling together the
result will doubtless be fully up to the
expectations nf tbe promoters.
First nn the list of necessities for a
first class ball is musio, and in securing Herr Steiner's Orchestra, tbe
music committee have undoubtedly
filled overy requirement and the list of
music for the dances embraces all thnt
is newest and best of tho music at
preseut iu vogue in the. social world.
The second requirement, a good and
spacious floor is also assured bv the
hiring of the Opera House with the
floor made especially adapted for danc-
iin* when the house was built, and with
snch a largo amount of open space free
from pillars, etc. Another desirable
feature about the Opera House, is its
modern Bytem of ventilation which
will prevent over heating nnd insure a
plensant nnd equable temperature
throughout tlie evening.
The refreshment committee is composed of Mesdames Peters, (Iambic,
Akehurst, Goepel, Net lands, Franit
Beer, Connon, Kobertson, S. 8. Taylor.
Olark, Hamilton, Lay, and Miss Beer.
Needless to sny that tho lefreshments
will be as tempting and dainty ns ihe
most fnstidious of epicures could desire, nnd lhat nothing will be laoking,
The decoration of the boil ling is
beiug looked after by Messrs Sherwood, Irving, Stewart and several
others, aud with tlie gooil taste and experience brought to bear will doubtless
be a credit to the gentleman arranging
them.
The programme, of dances printed
in our last number, is an excellent
one.
("ran*1 preparations aro being made

shipped at that point to the Nelson &
Fort Sheppard Railway. The reason
for this addition ro the accommodations at that point is said to be the
increasing business which the Crow's

with the Northport Smelter, and other
points across tho line. The smelter
mentioned now purchases all its coke
from the    Crow's Nist Pass.

that the Attornev (ieneral had decided

KOOTENAY I
Columbia, B. C. May 12.���One of
the greatest strikes ever mado in the
Boundary country has just beeu made
on the Golden Eagle, near Volcanic
mountain, in Brown's camp, about 10
miles from Columbia, up the north
fork of the Kettle river. At the ill
foot level, a solid body of ohalooyprite,
VI feet in Width, has beeu opened up,
With which considerable gray copper
is intermixed.
TbisTis a most important discovery.
There is iio doubt that tho ore is of
high value, and tho body a vast
on.**. The Golden Eagle from now on
will rank among the banner mines of
the northwest. The claim was bonded
last fall from Christopher Tobiason, by
Messrs, Fox and Mouldon-Barrott, of
Greenwood, who have been steadily
developing it ever since. That their
work has been rewarded by the most
complete success is gratifying to the
entire country.
Tho strike is another ovidence of the
rich character of the north fork section. A great number nf high grade
properties are situated in the immediate vicinity of the Golden Eagle or
within comparatively short distances
from it. Among these aro the great
Volcanic, the Midnight, tho Earthquake, the English and French group,
the Christina, tho Pathfinder, the
Mammoth and Diamond Hitch. It
seems certain that this section will
soon make tbe north fork famous for
large ore bodies and high grade ore.
It is expected tbat the Golden Eagle
veiu may be found to be the same as
that already opened on the Midnight,
immediately tn tho north, as the strike
of tho Midnight vein is precisely in
the direction of the Golden Eagle
shaft.
* *   *
Good reports aro iu from the Hope
group, which lies near the Porto Kico
wagon road, about three miles from
the railway. A fine ledge of quartz
has been opened up in a curious volcanic chimney or vent. The ore closely
resembles the free mill in Porto Rico
ore and near the chimnoy is strongly
impregnated with suiphur, so much so
that when dried and crumbled tbe
rock will ignite. A tunnel of GO feet
from the chimney and a recent assay
goes $64 in gold.
* *   *
Some excellent galena ore is shown
in town from a strike made Tuesday
on the Queen Fraction, a Galena Farm
property, owned by David Matbeson,
J, Lind and C. E. Strickland. The
strike was made in a small open cut,
on what is believed to be the Noonday
lead.
An import-nit strike wns made ou
the Home Run group last Friday, by
James Morau and Charles Greenley.
the owners. In running an open cut
to apply on tho annual asssessment
work, a strong quartz ledgo was uncovered, from 10 to l"i feet across,
carrying eight aud ten inch stringers
of grey copper ore, the oroppings from
which assayed 1!)B and \12 ounces silver.
The Home Run group embraces three
claims. They are located east of the
Mountain Chief, and of about the same
altitude. Last spring and summer several weeks work was put upon the
property in sluicing for the lead, but
all this work accomplished nothing.
Sinco the striko has "-leen made, it is
the intention of the owners to push
work steadily with as large a force of
men as can bo conveniently worked.
* *   *
The Fern mine at Hall Siding has recommenced work. Probably about BO
men will be employed about the mine
aud stamp mill. Work is also to be
recommenced ou the Minnie claim
which adjoins the Fern mine. This,
like the Fern, is a free-milling property. It has a five-foot ledge iu which
aro two paystreaks of H) ami six
inches respectively, from which a
number of nno samples containing
visible gold have been taken A tunnel has been driven 85 feet on the
vein.

engineers, and 500 marines have gone
to the Kow Leon Hinterland. The
greatest secrecy is observed as to the
plans of the British authorities and
nothing is known regarding the actual destination of the troops, but it
seems evident that two detachments
ot troops will advance on Tai-Poh-Fu
and Deep Bay, cut off the rebels and
drive them from the ceded territory.
The gun vessels engaged in the operations have been provisioned for eight
days. Troops are patrolling the European quarter of Kow Leon.
It is reported that Chinese rebels
from Tung Kung invaded British territory yesterday evening and that two
armed gangs robbed the city of
Kow Leon.   Hoiig Kong itself is quiet.
