be in a position to ship as soon as this
tunnel is completed as all the ore
will come out through it. It will also
open some valuable stoping ground.
Tbe Molly Gibson will be a sieady
shipper all winter and with tbe
ecqnomical handing which tha crosscut will make possible the ore will
net more than it did with ils former
shipments. The ore is pure galena

Secure Peace.
Galls on Heaven, as Usual,
and Ylakes Goo-Goo Eyes
at America.
London, Aug. 37.���The Daily Telegraph publishes today a long interview with Mr. Kruger at Ililveisun on
Lord Kitchener's latest proclamation.
Tho correspondent says:
Mr. Kruger, who seemed greatly
improved in health, spoke vehemently
and with intense feeling, rejecting tlie
idea that anything had been changed
except thu attitude of the British.
He insisted that the tactics of the
Hoers were still as regular as at the
beginning of the war. Their forces,
lie said, were smaller and were
divided into small parties, because
the British had divided their forces
into innumerable small columns. He
declared that ever since the capture of
liloemi'ontein the liritisli had trampled
upon tbe code of international Jaw.
As for tho provisions, transports, and
cattle, which the British are continually seizing, Air. Kruger snid there
weie intended, not for the Boer commandos, which live from hand to
mouth, but for the women and
children.
Uo contended that Lord Kitchener's
proclamation itself recognized tbat the
isocrs bad a regular administration
and army. The proclamation con Id
have but one effect, to embitter and
intensify resistance. lie said the
question whether any protest against
it could be issued, was siill under
consideration but this matter was of
little importance to the burghers who
did not look to Europe for approval,
hut America. Having characterized
the proclamation as tho blackest crime
committed against the Boers Mr.
Kruger closed the interview by calmy
calling Heaven to witness that the
story of a Dutch conspiracy against
the British was an "abominable He,"
���'the most mischievous and diabolical
lie ever coined sinoc man drst appeared in the world."
Ho said, however, that peace was
still possible on the basis of give and
take and that the Boers were ready to
make reasonable sacrifices and to give
satisfactory guarantees on the basis
of independence and for pardon to
colonial Africans.
LAST SAD RITES.
There is practically no ohange in
the situation at the St. Eugene, The
shaft in the Long Shore tunnel is still
going down. It is rumored that operations will commence on the St.
Eugene about tlie middle of September. Some 70 to 80 men are still en
gaged in development work.

An invitation from the Greenwood
city conncil to attend the Labor Day

A letter was received asking for a

It was decided t.o extend the sewer
on Hall Mines road for a certain distance further.
Tlie health bylaw, relating to the
prevention of the spread of consump

the same subject,
W. E. Wasson, employed in the city
Clark's department, was granted a
month's leave of absence.
A communication was read from a
Montreal firm quoting prices on electric transformers. As it was thought

interviewed Government Agent J. A.
Turner, regarding the way the Pro
vincial Government would pay its
sharte of the high sahool building ex-

direct with Victoria on the matter,
and the school trustees had been notified accordingly.
Engineer McCullooh repoited that
the dam at Whitewater creek bad been
linished early last week, but bush fires
had burned alcng part of it necessi-,
tating further repairs, which were
completed Friday. Another stream
had been noticed which could bo turned into the flume and evea at the
present time would furnish fifty
inches more of water. Woik on the
short branch flume for tbis was now
under way and would be completed by
tonight.
Aid. Patterson called attention to
the condition of the dam at Anderson
creek, which,he said, allowed a large
quantity of water to escape, which
should come into the flume. He also
stated that a considerable amount of
water from the overflow of the Hume
at piesent ran into the city sewers,
which should he turned into the
electric light power dam.
Mr. McCulluch said the leakage
from the dam was not more than live
miners' Inches of water, some leakage
being unpreveiitahlc from the gravelly
formation of the bottom.
Tl.e advantages or an automatic cutoff for the water wheel at the electric
light power house, by whioh a large
amount of water waste would bo prevented, were urged by Mr. MeCulloeh,
and on motion of Alderman Patterson, seconded by Aid. Gillett,. it was
decided to procure one.
Tlie council then adjourned for two
weeks, September '.), as next, Monday,

STILL TALK OF PEACE.
Influential Men to Act as Mediators in
the Strike.
Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 30.���The reported peace negotiations for the settlement of the steel strike, through
the medium of disinterested parties,
officials and members of the National
Civic Federation, received a setback
when Eio-ddent Theo. J. Shaffer, of
the Amalgamated Association of Iron
and Steel Workers, tonight declared
absolutely that be had no knowledge
of such proceedings and that if such a
move had been started it did not have
the official sanction of tbe organization. Nevertheless the subject will
not down and tonight it. is said the
concilatory commitee of the civic
federation, already prominent in tlie
matter,, is fully prepared to carry on
negotiations and will if necessary endeavor to secure the good offices nf
Archbishop Ireland, Bishop Potter,
Daniel Hanna and Seth Low, members of ttieir organization, to give
such prominence to the committee
that, the proposal will bear witli the
steel company. In tbe meantime both
sides remain firm. Tlie steel people
point to the gains they have made all
along tbe line in the way of securing
men and starting plants, while the
Amalgamated officials say that instead of losing ground th- association
is gaining every day. While tho combination has succeeded in starting- a
few plants they are not turning out
mercantlble matter and are losing
money and breaking. valuable
machinery. The steel people ridicule
the claims of the association.

SULTAN STILL SULKY
Paris, Aug. 20.���Sultan Abdul
Humid's persistence in procrastinating methods continees to disturb tlie
Turkish relations with France. His
tirade giving satisfaction in the Quays
question was taken as in indication
that ho would accept the entire French
claims. But M. Constans telegraphed
yesterday that the Sultan was still
holding out against the payment of
the claims ol the Frenchmen, dating
back many years and amounting to
several million francs, for which M
Constans demanded a settlement, and
declared he would leave Constantinople today unless the matter was
settled. This action however, would
be only a manifestation of dissatisae-
tion, and not a rupture ot relaUons,
as the councillor of the French embassy will take over the affairs of
tlie embassy and continue tlie negotia
tions. No word has been received
from him regarding today's developments.

Washington. I). ('.. Aug. 20. ���Advices which have just been received,
throw some light on the report from
Santiago to the effect that the committee of foreign affairs of the
Cnilian congress had declined to
recommend appropriations to defray
the expense of sending delegates from
Chili to tlie approaching International American Cougr ess at Mexico
City. These advices wi thout. questioning the accuracy of tlie original
statement, make it appear that the
committee of foreign atVairs does not
represent the party in control of tlie
executive brunch of the government.
It is said that in consequence, tlio
declarations of this coniiniltee are by
uo means final, and therefor., it does
not follow from its last action that

THE ENDEAV0BBK8.
1'he eighth annual reunion of the
Cbrltslnn Endeavor liocloty will t"'
held in this city next week. It is the
first time in the history of the organization that an interior town lias been
made the meeting place of the annual
reunion and Nelson should be proud
of the fact that it has been so
selected.
In the Christian Endeavor Sooiety
is embodied one of the greatest religious movements of tbo last century,
tbe only other ol Importance being
the   establishment  and growth of the
Salvation Army.      Previous to tl ������
ganlzetlon of the Endeavor Society by
Francis 10. Clarke thc work done in
the cburobes by the young people wus
small and confined to a few sporadic
cases where entlmstiasts took up
church woik early in life, It was Mr.
Clarke's mission to organize the
young Christians into a concrete force,
to show the possibilities for Uhrist-
iau work which existed in the
young communicants ami tin- good
which they have accomplished lias
iieen simply phenomenal. The members work for a higher Christian life
and the upbuilding of the church.
Formerly the young were given litt'e
or no voice in the conduct of the
churches, or their work, as thev were
supposed to acquire genuine piety
oniy with age, but now they are the
very pillars of the churches take Unload in all of tbeir work.and the pastors find their hands strongly sustained by a new, a bright, a progressive element. Then they, in addition
to being foremost in advancing the
churches and increasing thcr usefulness, bave also strengthened them
socially until they wield a great Influence and power in this direction.
The Christian Endeavorers have
grown from a small beginning to a
great power and are an important
factor in modern ciivlization. In IHStl
there was but a sigle society with a
membership of r>7, and now there are
60,750 societies with a membership of
.'1.500,0110. When it was first started
it was in tire extreme corner of one
country and now societies exist in
eountrios on the lace of the earth. At
lirst it existed iu a single denomination and now it permeates forty
denominations.
The Christian Endeavor Work, one
of thc organs of thc society, mentions
among other things, the following to
show how the society has grown :
In IHUl, only tho Young People's
Society. In lilOl, tbo Juniors, Intermediates Seniors, Floating societies, Mothers' societies, Prison
societies, Travellers'sneictics,societies
in factories, schools, colleges, almshouses, and asylums.
In 1881, a single newspaper article.
In 1901, scores of books, hundreds of
pamphlets, and Christian Endeavor
articles by the thousand every week
in the leading secular and religious
journals of the world.
In tssi, no young people's religious
convention even guessed at. In HUH,
a perspective of New York. Boston,
San Krancisco, Washington, Detroit,
London, and many others, ranking
among the greatest conventions of the
world's history.
In 1881, no Christian Endeavor
Unions, In 1001, Important unions in
practicnlly all cities, counties, Stales,
and Provinces of the English-speaking
world and in many ofhei lands, to
gethnr    with    the    denominational
Christian Kdoavnr federations.
in lssi, three Christian Endeavor
comiuittes. Iu 1001, tho lookout,
prayer-meeting, social, missionary,

ol' it is soliil giilona that runs about
���17 ounces in silver anil from fio to 75
per ceut. lend to tho ton nnd the. remaining 30 feet ofthe ledge of galena,
iron, etc. Notwithstanding the great,
size of the ledge and the good grade
of the ore the management found by
experience that the proUts after the
ore. had been shipped and treated by
the smelters of the United States
were not large, and came to the eon-
clnsion that if the output was treated
in a smelter close to tho mine that it
would be far more advantageous to tho
company,and lu-nce it lias been decided to erect and maintain a company
smelter.
The gold-copper miners long since
ui/,ed that it would be more
able for tbem to reduce their
it home instead of sending them
abroad for treatment. When they exported their output they were compelled to ship gnly that which was of
a high grade, as the oro bad to carry
considerable value to pay the railways
for its carriage and the smelters for
reduction. Now, however, usually
all the ore between hanging and foot-
wall is sent to the smelter without
sorting. Tins is because the smelters are close to the mines and the
cost of haulage small and thc price of
smelting is much lower than wbat
they used to pay to the American
concerns for the operation,
The silver-lead miners are beginning to realize that in order to make
as much profit as possible on their
output that they must adopt a similar
plan and havo their ores reduced at
homo, and wherever possible in plants
owned by themselves. -Tile Sullivan
has definitely decided to adopt this
plan and the London Consolidated and
the Richelieu mining companies and
others have the same idea under contemplation, and tho time is rapidly
upproachiii when all of the ore produced in the mines of Hritish Columbia
will be treated at home. As a matter
of simple public economy this is the
best method, too, for the general good
of thc common wealth, because as the
ore is produced hen- it should be reduced here and work given tn the
home people, instead of being
sent away to aid in the upbuilding ot
other Communities at tlie expense of
this.

much water power, which can lie

than that generated by steam. Kleet-
rio drills could he used to advantage

hand. Tb- outcome of tne experiment
of the Payne will thereore be watched
with considerable interest.

ELE0XBI0AL DRILLS.
For a long time inventors have been
endeavoring to produce an electrical
drill foi use in mining that would ilo
satisfactory work underground. This
foi in of drill has oeeti in use for some
time past for surface worlt and has
done efficient service in hydraulic
mines in breaking cement su that
watei could afterwards handle it. It
is now claimed that electrical drills
tbat will perform good work underground have been made. A well informed Kootenav mining machinery
agent, in talking about olegtrlcal
drills a few days since, staled i.hat he
had spent considerable time iu inves-
tgating tlimn and that he was full;.'
satisfied that they were quite as ellicient as ihe drills driven by compressed
air and steam. Ilo was certain, lie
said, that they were destined to cut
quite au Important figure in mining,
and he thought that they would iu
time drive other di illy out of the field
necause they can bo operated cheaper.
The Payne company has ordered a
shipment if electrical drills for use in
its mine and the result of what, is in
the nature of an experiment in this
part of Hritish Columbia will be
awaited witli consiileralhe interest.
If the claim that thin type of drill
will do good and efficient work underground is borne out it would be con-
siderabloofa factor ln tlio economical

do away with the necessity nf the expensive plants for compressing air, as
the electric energy could he conducted

The British Columbia Trade Budget
has the following concerning the
Kitchener iron and steel project: Tho
Kitchener iron claims, a group of
tifteen claims on Hoat river, East
Kootenay, were staked in 1803 by C.
P. Ilill. Mr. Hill disposed of some
claims outright and interests In all of
them, lie was able, however lately
to secure options on every interest
and acted as vendor in the sale just
made of the claims for $80,000 to an
Eastern syndicate. It is likely that
the conaumation of this ttansaction is
tlie beginning of a new epoch in British Columbia iron industry. With
unlimited coke supply close hy, a
liltnted market it is true in BOine
respects, yet a growing trade with
no competitors and Illimitable possi
bllities of markets in the orient, it is
easy to prognosticate that the iron
industry will soon take its plaee
amongst the principal activities of our
province.

POLI3E COL'llT NEWS.
A long list of cases was disposed of
yesteroay morning before the magistrate. Matthew Garrety who was ar-
tested by the police lust Friday night,
was the lirst to come before Police
Magistrate Crease yesterday morning.
As it wns not his lirst appearance at
the l,;u- of justice a tine of $10 and costs
was imposed for disturbing the pence.
Ou tlie 33rd inst. information was
laid aiainst Harry Ashcroft by Herman Lir.denwnld, charging the former
with nssault. Yesterday morning
when Ihe ense came up, Ashcroft
pleaded guilty, but stated that he
had lent $10 to the complainant some
time ago, ai d nol receiving payment
within a reasonable time, told
l.iiideuwiild tlie next time he J was
blowing in money around town without paying- him there would be
trouble. On Friday this condition of
affairs occurred, and alter some talk
between the two men Ashcroft struck
l.indenivald nnd knocked him around
generally,but in doing so severely injured one of liis own bauds. A fine
of $lo and costs was the sentence.
K. Cosgrove wns brought up on the
charge of swearing nnd disturbing the
peace ou Vernon street on Sonday. lie
was asked to contribute $10 and costs
to the civic finances, the request being at once complied with.
Two disorderly characters, charged
with screaming anil raising a row
generally on the public streets Saturday night were each lined $10 and
costs.
Four, cases arising ont of tlie dog
tax bylaw, completed tlie business of
tho sessiou. Of these, one was discharged, auotber lined $.". and costs,
and the other two held over. Several
other patties against whom proceedings were to have been taken yesterday, had paid Uieir licenses Saturday
aud so escaped the extra expense. A
number of other similar cases are to
be proceeded Willi shortly.
