DOMINION TRADES CONGRESS.
���delegate Clayton Gives an Interesting
Account of Its Ilnsiness.
^ A meeting of the Trades and Labor
Couneil was hold last evoning fnr the
Purposo of bearing the report of President Clayton, on bis rooent visit to
Brantford,   Out.,   to  tho    Dominion
Trades congress which wa< hi III Iher
this year.
i Mi. Clayton gave a very full and |
' interesting account of the congress,
and the various resolutions Whioh had
been brought up al it. Uno resolution
was to the effeot that union men
should nut become members of militia
organizations unless in case of danger
to the country, This was passed after
an extremely warm discussion. In
support of the resolution eases were
cited in which the militia bad been
called out to overawe strikers. In
suoh a ease a union luuii bad to face
the probability uf threatening his
fellow union member with arms, and
helping to defeat the cuuso with
which lie was in sympathy. He said:
''I do not believe tbat it is in the interest of any man to belong to any
organization by which the government
can call him nut at any time to set hiin
against Ins fellow man, and I never
knew uf the militia being called out
t'*�� protect the lights of thn working
man."
One of the papers read at the congress was by ,T. S. Tot in, of Boston,
Who strongly urged upon the unions
the scrupulous carrying out of agreements miulo with employers, as on
this all security in business rested.
A motion Diought up that all Innoi
employees holding confidential appointments under the government,
Bhould be shut out from acting as
members of the congress evoked eon-
sideiablo   discussion,   but was finally
defeated,
On the Chinese question, on whioh
a resolution had been introdueted bv
Mr. Clayton, be had met with considerable opposition. Many uf tho mem-
uers uf the congress seemed to think
thnt the Chinese were not. so bad,
were very harmless, in fact, Finding
out that sume of thoso who felt in
this way were shoemakers and tailors
ho told them of onnditiuns in Vancouver, where 00 per cent, of the tailors
and 46 per cent, of tho shoemakers
were Chinamen, ns well as almost all
tho gaidoners. This brought the niat-
u home to u'uwm en no aim..mi of .eu*
soning could have and tbe motion,
which asked Iho government to ex-
elude the Chinese was passed. For
bis part, Mr. Clayton, added, the only
practical way he oould see of dealing
with the pioblcm was to have a minimum wage scale to be paid all workmen irrespective of color or race, and
thou if any wanted to employ the
Chinese at the same wages as white
men,why thoy might do so.
Although Hritish Columbia had ro
fow delegates at the congress, yet in
auiount of per oapita tax paid to the
congress it stood second among the
provinces, only Ontario coming ahead
of it. lie thought if the Nelson delegation next year handled the matter
properly that the noxt sitting of the
congress could be secured for this
city, as in the ballot this year it was
second.

oado, N. O. of tho loeal lodge, presided, with Oeo. Halo in the vice-
chair. The programme of speeches
was cut short owing to the desiro of
many to begin dancing. Mr. Ilogge
spoke on Ibe good Odd Fellowship is
doing, mentioning that in the past
year the order had paid out _3,000,-
000 in benefits, which was equal to 87
a minute. Among tho schemes afoot
for the good of the members of the
order was one to build a home for
aged and infirm members, He commended the projeet to the consideration of those present. Dr. Artuhr,
grand warden, also made an excellent
speech.

for future consideration."
A. J. Seott, of Hancock, Mich.,
president of the Northwestern Devel*
opment Syndioate, who has been in
Nelson for the last two days leaves
for tho Lardeau this morning, where
be will spend a week looking over the
properties of the company, and incidentally enjoying a little shooting.
Mr. Scott stated that the shareholders
in Michigan in the By nd lea to bad been
ranoh intorestod iu the samples of ore
aud description of the properties sent
thorn, so much so that he had been
sent out to inspect the properties
thoroughly and tako back more samples for assaying at the Scliool of
Mines, which was situated at Houghton, Mich., across Portage lake from
Hancock.
Mr. Scott was much impressed with
the country, which he believes within
the noxt twenty years will be tho
leading mining country of tho World.
He had been Btruek with the immense
amount of territory which was so
richly mineralized in British Colum-
lba, In Michigan tbo copper mines
were confined to one large lode which
was about one hundred and fifty miles
lung by fiom half a milo to a mile
wido. In this Dolt were many rich
veins of copper, but veins which
neeflq-jL Enormously oxpensive operations, as compared with tbo average
mining properties of this country to
devclcp. Mining in Michigan practically started about 1880, The belt
mentioned was on tho wost sido of
Kewanee Point, a long spit of land
extending into Lake Superior. There
are 35 mines in operation of which
the Calnraet. Quinoy and the Tamarac
aro among the principal. The average
doptn at which theso mines are worked is 5,000 foot, although the Calumet
had paid from tho surface. On others
of the mlnos it had been necessary to
attain groat depth befoie paying ore
was reached. The capitalisation of
all of the companies ran well up into
the millions, which was mado necessary by the oxpensive character of the
mining. The veins weie generally
from 10 to 15 feet wide, carry native
copper with a little native silver.
Tho metals were pure, not needing
any refining proceses. In most of tho
mines a couple of boys were kept to1
pick out the pieces of silver, which
average about. ,'!00 or $300 per month.
On the Calumet tho present lowest
level worked was 5,500 feet and a
large number of workings were below
the mile level. The vein had a regular dip of 85 degrees to tbe west. Oie
which was one and a half or two per
cent, copper was considered good.
Mr, Scott said that one reason why
the peoplo in his vicinity were so
much interested in tho Camborne
propeities was because thoy were free
gold, and as such the processes to
some degree were akin to those used
in the mines at home. He had been
much surprised to note tho large number of miners from Michigan who
were working throughout, not only
Hritish Columbia but Montana and
Washington as well, and said that
the Michigan mines had evidently
been the school in which a majority
of tbem bad learned the tiade.
Mr. Scott said that NelBon had been
a wonderful surprise to him. lie had
read how new tho country was as regards opening up, and having boen a
pioneer in the Michigan copner fields
and seen how long it took to develop
the mines and towns there, he had
expected to find a mining camp like
those Been in the oast at home.
When he arrived here the city was a
revelation. He had spent must of the
dav "taking in the town'1 and trying
to figure out how for such a small
population there could be snch immense freight yards, fine stores,
which lattor especially evoked his admiration, and other signs of gieat
progiess. He said in Michigan the
towns had to use all kinds of inducements to get the railways to build in,
muny places having even been bonded
to raise money for   subsidies.     Here,

The death of the crafty Ameer of
Afghanistan may cause the Bravest
of complications unless his successor
should display the same wisdom as he
did in playing one Kuropoan nation
a;-aiiist the other and tli'm saving his
riominioua from conquest. Afghanistan is a country shaped like a
triangle lying to tho nurthwist of
India. Across its northern frontier
lies Russia Tujkestan and to its west
is Persia and south and east is India.
Afghanistan is, tbeiefore, the buffer
state between British anil Russian
interests in Asia. ln the struggle
which has been going on fur a century or more for dominancy In Asia
the Russian idea has boen to secure
control of Afghanistan so as to push
on and secure seaports on the Persian
gulf later oo and thus give the
country a better outlet to the ocean.
Russia bas been trying to get an outlet
on the warm seas since the time of
I'eter the Great. Russia haB also
designs on India. Slowly but surely
the Russians havo been oonquering
Central Asia. Ono after another the
savage tribes of Turkestan have
acknowledged the sovereignty of the
Czar. The advnncco has been by
degrees to Khiva, to Merv, to Ilook-
hara to Samakand and tbe 1'amits, at
the foot of the Hindu Kush mountains.
On the other hand, the British have
kept close watch on the Russian aggression and bavo steadily widened
tbeir frontier to the bank of tbe Indus
and into the mountains towards
Kabul. Thoy have possession of the
fow mountain passes over wbioh the
Russians could pass and here Great
Hntuln and Russia face each other at
the present moment, the latter saying
to the former, 'So far shall thou go
and no farther."
If Uabib Oulah Khan, the successor
of Abdur Kalians Khan, is wire, he
will follow out the orafty policy of
his father ami play Oreat llritain
against Russia, with a strong leaning
toward the former. Should he adopt
a different pnltoy aud one which
wonld menace Hritish interests the
result would be that his territory
would be overrun and ocoupied by
Hritish soldieiy. Tbe father of tbe
pieeeut Ameor was taught a Icsboh
which he never forgot by Geneial
Hi beits when be wont to the relief of
Kandahar only a few years ago. The
present Ameer was probably a boy at
that time and perhaps hae some grim
recollections of the drubbing which
waB then administered to the
Afghans.
The dispatches   during tho past few
days   have   been   rather   disquietinp.
Habib   Oulah    Khan,    who   has boen
proclaimed Ameer,   is   tho   oldest son
of the lato Ameor.  tie has progressive
Ideas and   visited   Kurope during   the
progress   of   the last Paris exposition
and    paid    short  visits   to   London,
Paris and lierlin.      His suceesssioii is
favored   by    Hritish     influence.       A
dispatch   from   London   statos     thai
Russia   doslrf-s   the succession of   the
fourth Bon of   the Ameer,   Mohammed
Oulah Khan,    thnt   Russian icinforoe*
ments   have    been     ordered   to     the
frontier,   and   that   ordeis have been
issued   for   the troops to  be In readiness to seize,   if necessary, Herat.    It
Is   within   the range   of   possibilities
that the question    of   succession   may
be   used as a pretext by Russia to stir
up strife and made the excuse for taking more territory which would plaoe
her   a   little   nearer   to   the  coveted
warm seas.      Now   tbat   the   liritisli
foroos     aro     concentrated    in    Soutli
Africa,      Russia   may   oonslder   it an
opportune timo to take a forward step.
The       British,     however,      hBve     a
force in Inlia sufficient, it is thought,
to   checkmate any movement mado by
tbo soldiers of tho Czar,      The   situation seems  to   be   seriuua   enough   to
warrant      considcrablu     uneasiness.
Sooner or later it is evident   lhat   one
of the greatest   wnrs of   modern times
will be fought on the plains and nmid

its effeots. Miss Stone was captured
together with a party of friends on
September 3rd, near Raslog, a Bulgarian village. All of the mombers of
the party, exoept Miss Stone and the
wife of a Bulgarian teacher, wero
released by tho brigands. The two
captives were carried into tbe mountain., of Bulgaria, and at first a ransom of $150,000 was demanded for
Miss Stone, hut thin was subsequently
roducod to $110,000. There aie some
queer complications to the affair. It
is charged that thc Macedonian committee, which IB engaged in organizing a movement hostile to Turkey,
connived in the plan to abduct Miss
Stone. The Bulgarian government
sympathizes with the committee, and
s reluotant to take any action, exoept
tho payment of tbe ransom. Tbe
Turkish government is opposed to tbis
as it would result in placing funds in
the hands of the revolutionary committee. Miss Stone is in the curious
position of being the means by which
a revolutionary movement is tc be
financed. The United States, considering that the safety of Miss Stone is
the firHt consideration, will advance
the ransom and immediately thereafter imminence proceedings to compel
Turkey to repay the sum and to punish the btigands.
Tbis form of brigandage is not new
as on a number of occasions foreigners have been captured by these
gentry and held for ransoms. In a few
instances the governments raised tbe
sums demanded, bnt this encouraged
the practice to snch an extent that It
developed Into a regular industry. To
offset this an agreement was entered
into among the ministers at Constantinople whiob prohibited the payment
of ransoms for foreigners In the hands
of brigands and holding the Turiksh
government responsible for the safety
and rcieaseof those abducted. Thishas
worked advanagaously till Miss Stone
was abducted, and now it seems, aa
the captive Is a woman and there ie
fear of her safety, a departure from
the plan is to be mado. The United
States doubtless will make Turkey
pay the 3110,000 with an apology and
should add on a little interest.
KITCHENER'S HANDS FREE.

American missionary, by Bulgarian
brigands has becoi:'.e an international
affair, wbich may be wide reaching in

iiave tied   Lord Kitchener's hands in
Sooth Africa   have   been   broken  and
are now free to smite the   enemies  of
the empire there and   close   ine   war,
Martial law   has been   proclaimed   iu
Cape   Colony,     everything   is    under
control of   the   hero   of    Omdurraan,
the oivil authorities have no power to
interfere with him   and if he does not
now accomplish   the task of whipping
into submission the   hostile Boers and
checking   theii   sympathizer   it will
be   because   he   lies not the ability tu
do so. The placing of the Cope Colony
under martial law   is   but   a   prelude
to  a  moie vigoious  policy that  will
immoditttoly be put into effect.   Those
who   give   aid   and subtcnance to the
ouemy and who are guilty   of Iraitor-

summurily dealt with.     The struggle
has   reached   u stage when it is absolutely necessary to used   drastic measures to put an end   to it, as it has not

task to   perform, is   not thc   uiun    to
falter until it is completed.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
It Is stated that supplemental and
levised reports of the Dominion
Census now to hand will increase the
first estimate of our country's population from rather over 5,338,000 to
more than 5, .100,000, says the Columbian. Meanwhile the delay continues
in forwarding to this Province ibe
details of the count in all the rural
distiicts, and many of the towns of
British Columbia. There are oircum-
stancea to account for this in tho oase
of Atlin and certain points on the
North Coast, but there appears to be
no sufficient reason for the delay in
summing up aud publishing the returns from some forty or fifty small
towns, villages and rural districts
which are within fairly easy reach of
Vanoouvcr, Victoria and Nelson, or
one ot them. We are still without
any data to show the distribution of
considerably more than 100,000 of our
Province's total estimated population
of 190,000 souls.
Tbe assay office established by the
Dominion government at Vancouver
is proving successful in accomplishing
the objeots for whioh it was aesignod,
towit: Diverting the flow of Yukon
gold from the United States into Canada and bringing the business of the
Yukon from the American into the
Canadian cities. This is as it should
be and the benefits to be derived from
the enterprise of tbe Federal govern-
ment will increase for some time instead of decreasing, as the gold fields
o' the north -,;iil oontinue to pour
forth thoir wealth for many years to
come. The Vancouver World in commenting on the good effect of the
establishment of the assay offioe there
says: "Seattle Is beginning to feel
the effect of tho establishment of the
assay office in this oity and to realize
tbat the Klondike miner will hereafter come here to sell his gold and
spend its price, as well as lo buy his
outfit, the fact that Canada oontrols
the trade of this treasure land within
its own borders being now admitted
oven by Seattleites. No argument as
to the success of the assay office here,
and its pioflt to the city and the
country, could be more potent than
the protest that Soattle is now raising
with regard to it."

Wbat promises to be an important
find of free gold ban heen made on
tbo south fork of the Lardeau. The
Lardeau Eagle gives the following
uooonnt of the And: On Saturday last
a report was circulated in town that
Napoleon Emo and W. U. Howard had
made a discovery that some believe to
be tbe richest gold strike fouud in
this seotion for a long time. Tbe new
snene of attraction is up the south
fork of Lardeau creek on tho eastern
slope of Silvei Uup mountain, above
tbo Sharon and other properties already staked. Thc owners have staked cloven olalmfl, Berkley, Berkley
No. 2, Berkley No. 3, Clyde, Clyde
No, 2, Master Harry, Somerset,
Hurley, Yorlce, Yorke No. 2, and
Yorlie No. 3. While the owners of the
property are not any ing much about it
themselves, lt is nevertheless true
that they did submit to S. Shannon,
II, A., for assay carbonates picked
from the ledge outcropping which
run ,(110 in gold and $8.40 In Bilver.
Further explorations will determine
how much of this ore there is in the
ground, bnt as the ledge can bo
traced over tho length of two claims,
it is probable that Messrs. Emo and
Howard are ln luck.
I andJ.T. Myers Cray, left this morning
! for the we*,t fork conntry on a lmnt-
I ing trip, and arrangements are being
i made to despatch two four-horse
| teams to bring homo the bag from die
j scene of carnage.
J. W. Westfall who has taken a
bond on the Lucky Boy and Pedro,
says tho Trout Lake Topic, will pnt
men to work at once to continue
throughout the winter, The second
payinonnt is to be made on June 1st,
1003, and tho last on Ootohei 1st, 10(12.
Mr.Westfall says those claims has one
of tlio biggest loads he has cor seen.
It has been atitpped foi 400 foet and
extends througn four claims. T ie
paystreak is about 15 inches of almost
solid grey copper lying between well
dunned walls. A parallel lend gives
values from 81,100 to $1,21)0 to the
ton.
Values have advnnced steadily in
thc Old Gold Company's properties at
Trout Lake, until now they run from
$10H to $1S5. Tha company expects
soon to ship ore stoadily.
A litiike of six Indies of grey ooppor
has been made on tins Unltled Grouse
claim, lying ou oue side of runnel
which is lu 80 feet. About 70 sacks
of ore, practically all grey copper is
ready to bo taken down and the output for the winter will be eight
or ten tons which should run several
thousand ounces in  silver to the   ton.
The Lardeau Eagle states that
Charles M. McCrossan, managing
director of the Metropolitan Gold
Link and Golden Circle companies,
of Ferguson, has formed a company
knowu as the Lardeau Smelting &
ltefining company, of $7f.0,00u to build
a smeltor. Mr. M-'Crossan statos that
he hopoJ to have the smelter, which
it ia proposed to locate at Ferguson,
in operation by January 1st, 1902.
A pack train of supplies was shipped yesterday up to the Robinson
Crusoe group on Hnll crook, the property of R. James and W. Miller, who
intend putting in a month'a work in
opening up one of tho veins, which
has given encouraging results for
what work has been done on it.
The Duquosne Mining company, of
Pittsburg, now operating placer leases
on Kmitli creel; in the Big Bend, has
raised its capital from $400,000 to
.1,0(10,OCO, which means a considerable extension of its operations in
the district.

HapCr houses for tenants are invariably finding that paper is cheaper

kalsomine, paper costs less and wears
longer without becoming soiled. It
secures and holds a better class of ten*

having paper. There is Wall Paper and

DONT HURT SOME
But Coffee Oertainlj Ruins Some of the
Most, Highly Organized People*
"One year I livod where tho water
was bitter with iron and I could not
hear to drink it, so I began dunking
coffee three times a day.
Gradually I noticed nn uncomfortable feoling in the stomach, and more
or less constipation. In a fen
months 1 began to lie awake at night
long after I had retired.
This increased, until I never
thought of going to sleep before three
or four o'clock In the morning, and
then only after getting out of bed and
walking thu door for an hour.
I was talking of my nervous state
with a friend, who suggested that
pei haps it was the coffee I had been
using. She felt quite sure it was, and
stated that coffee would not stay on
her stomach at all, bnt as she fait she
must have a hot drink for breakfast,
sho had been using Postum Food
Coffee. She said sho didn't like I'os
turn particularly well, and at breakfast the next morning I didn't wonder, when I tasted the lint drink that
the servant brought In.
The same day I was Invited to take
dinner with another friend, Mrs.
Foster. '. lind visited her often before
nnd knew she made delicious coffee,
so when she asked how I liked her
coffee, Baid, 'It la jnst as Hue as
usual.' Sho invited me to have an-
othor cup, but I said, I would uot
dare to take the second' 'lib, you can
drink as many cups of this as you
like; it won't hnrt yon. Tbis is I'ostum Food Coffeo. Wo have been using
It a year now, and the little children
have all they want and um fnmih
have never been as healthy ab in tin-
past year.' 'I'ostum,' said 1 dnubt-
fnlly,' why the Postum I hid tint-
morning didn't taste anymore like
this than disli water.' 'Perhaps il
was not made right,' said my friend,
'1 have known more tlian one person
to be turned away from Postum tic-
oause it was poorly made. Thoro is
no seeret in It; only allow it to boil
long enough to bring out the taste,
Hnd there you are.' I have been nllng
Postum since, ami am entirely cured
of my trouble. I cannot say too much
for it." Grace A. Foster, Omali.-i,

Yesterday afternoon a Ch inaman,
who bad been fishing at the end of
the C, P. R. wharf and was reurning
home noticed tbat an engine was coming rapidly down the track on whioh
he was walking. As he was near a
switch, and thinking the locomotive
would continue along the straight
traok, ho stepped oil on the branch
line, not notic.ing that the switch waa
pen. When tne engine suddenly
beaded straight for bim he was almost
paralysed, and moved in time only
for the cowcatcher to miss him by a
bail breadth.

While tho ore brought down from
up the lake was being transhipped
from the steamer Kaslo to the cars at
the C. P. R. wharf yestorday morning
one of the deck hands experienced i
nuaden and unpleasant cold bath
Owing to tbe Kokanee being tied up
next to the wharf, the Kaslo was only
abU to get within twelve feet, and
across this space the gangway barely
teached. As Dan Woods was wheel
ing a truck loaded with six sacks of
ore aeioss this tbe plank suddenly
slipped off thc edge ofthe steamer and
oie, truok and man were precipitated
into the lake. The ore and the truck
went to the bottom, but Woods quickly camo to tho surface and was fished
out with a boat hook, none tbe worse
for bis experience
Michael Smith will come before his
honor, Judge Forin today, on extra-
ditionary proceedings. Tho story told
by F. J. Lowery, sheriff's officer
from Republic, corresponds with that
of the prisoner in most respects. The
gold had been hidden by Mrs. Neai,
wife of tho man for whom the prisoner had worked, In the earth beneath
the Hoot- of tho hen house. One day
Smith was told to clean out the place
and in doing so name on the can in
which was the pickle bottle containing the gold. He did not stay to find
an owner but started for Canada immediately, having a good time on the
way. Iloforc he had reached Robson
he nail bought a ticket for Victoria
it is said witli tho intentio- of going
to Manila. His recognition and arrest
by Constable Forroster was a clever
one. The constable was at his supper
when the telegraph operator brought
him the dispatch whicli nsked bim to
uiiikii ll.e arrest, but no description
was given. Mr. Forrester hastened
Io catch the steamer across the river
and found his man in the lunch room.
Smith haa letained S. S. Taylor as
solicitor and will fight extradition.
It will take some days to get the
necessary witneses.

WHITE MAN TURNED YELLOW.
Great consternation was felt by the
friends of M. A. Hogarty, of Lexington, Ky., when they nav. he was turning yellow. Bis skin slowly ohanged
color, also his eyes, and be suffered
terribly. His malady was Yellow
Jaundice, He was trea'ed by the best
doctors, but without benefit. Then
he waB advised to try Electric Bitters,
the wonderful Stomach and Livei
remedy, and he writes: "After taking two bottl*-s I was wholly oured. "
A trial proves its matchless merit for
all Stomach, Liver and Kidney
troubles. Only 25o. Said by Canada

FORTUNE SMILES ON THEM.
We havo reoeived personal and un
questionable information from the
east that "A Wise Woman" is mak
ing tbe strongest kind of a hit and
has been doing an enormous business.
Since the day it was started the management have been digging out and
adding to it without fear or favor,
until now it stands without an equal
in its line.

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases the heating capacity of the stove, and in connection with the deflector^ ring forces the
heat to the floor. The base is hot, the floor being warmer than with a
base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct at the
rear of the fire pot, the healed air being discharged in a circle at the top
of Are pot, over fire, thus consuming all the gases and products of combustion, lt can be operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently, by a screw register in the rear of base, insuring complete
control of the ste ve with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the back takes the cold air from
the floor and ejects it intensely heated, through the top adding greatly
to the heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according to directions*we guarantee it to
consume all the gas contained in soft coal, thus deriving the benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkable saving of
luel over any other stove on the market. The stove will hold fire from
24 to 48 hours without attention.
