WOULD CHANGE
MINING LAWS
Governor Ross of the Yukon
Not in Favor of the Royalty on Gold.
Fuel Supply Will Be a Serious
Question ln Dawson.
Coast News.
(SPECIAI. TO TBE MINER.)
Victorin. II. 0., Aug. 27.���If the
views of liovernor Koss are to prevail at Ottawa,the present season will
be the Inst upon which a royalty upon
the gold will be collected in tho Klondike. In the opinion of the chief executive olliner the imposition of an
expoit duty ou the precious metal
which is extracted from the creek
beds and bill sides of the Klondike
would be far more effective, and altogether a more rational sjstem of deriving revenue than the present one.
A recommendation to that effect has
already gone forward from Governor
lioss to the Dominion Government at
Ottawa, and although it is unlikely
tbat sny change will be made in the
nmtliods of raising the revenue in the
north this year, hi6 advice will certainly havo great weight in regard to
tlio administration of affairs in the
Yukon next season. The advantages
nf tba Bystem were explained by Governor Robs this morning in a conversation with the correspondent of The
Minor. Under the royalty tax there
is a great leakage of revenue due to
the natural desire of the miner to
avoid payment of the tax which is
always more or less irksome. Under
an export duty little loss need result,
as a penalty of confiscation would
probably be attached to .-old crossing
the border line, upon which the export tax bad not been pai". And no
company or individual miner would
risk the loss of thc entite amount of
treasure for the sake of avoiding a
trifle in the way of duty. The new
system would apply to corporations
and banks, as well as miners. The
customs offices at the bounday line
would weigh the gold there and exact
thc proper duty before allowing the
gold to proceed. This would apply to
ull gold going out of the territory and
would thus apply to Canadian miners
from the other provinces as well aa
those from the United States. Discrimination might be shown,however,
by providing for a rebate on any gold
sold in Canadian cities, just as the rebate on the royalty is now given in
the cities of Victoria and Vancouver.
Tbe Governor, who intends to remain in Victoria until the -ith, and
then return to his labors going by the
steamer Hating, expresses himself as
highly pleased with tbe condition of
affairs in Dawson, the general
character of the camp,and the outlook
for its future.
The question of fuel is of course one
which juat now is the most serious
problem for tho miner. The problem
bas not yet reached the a_ute stage,
for there is still sufficient wood in the
country to meet all demands made
upon it, and the situation will bo
further relieved by the removal of the
reserve, which Governor Koss intends
to make upon his return,from about a
thousand acres of land along the
Klondiite river. This belt of timber
land was reserved originally for mining purposes, and the time now Beems
ripe for throwing it opan. It extends
for eight or ten miles along the hanks
of the Klondike river, and probably
averages about a mile in width.
Some of it will be suitable for milling
purposes and the remainder will be
available for the miuors'fuel supply.

Speaking of the trade possibilities he
i suid that the recent taiiff imposed by
Russia, which discriminated against
the United States goods, was a handicap to trade, but the market was
large in Siberia and the distriot resourceful, alt'iough the people bowed
under militarism and priesthood and

by the Hritish ambassador not to go

SHAMROCK IS
A CRACKERJACK
BOXERS   STILL   AT  WORK
ADVICEta FROM CHINA SAY THEY
ARE DRILLING FOR ANOTHER UPRISING.
Viotoria, B. C, Aug. 27.���Chinese
papers received by the Empiess of
China today, contain accounts of a
massacre of Chinese in the Kwan Tien
Nion district of Manchuria, tbe Russians excusing the massacre by the
statement that tbe peasants kP'ed were
mistaken for insurgents. Few details
are given. Further troubles in Mongolia Rod Manoburia are reported,and
according to the North China Daily
News, the Russians have placed 20,000
men on the Md-ieburian Korean
frontier to open with the rebels.
The Shanghai Mercury publishes a
letter trora Rev. Frank Heran of
Clio Ping, who bas btcu journeying
through north Sheng Tung, to the
effect that the Boxers are Drilling and
preparing for a rising in that province.
Christtians have been openly threatened. A boxer placard has been found
posted at Canton, denouncing foreigners and calling upon the Chinese to
rise and refuse to pay the indemnity
to thc foreigners.
The Japan Herald announces that
Marquis Ito \\ ill shortly make a trip
to America for his health. He will
spend his time while on this side on
the Pacific coast.
The Chinese papers contain long
accounts of the floods caused by the
overflowing of the Yang Ste Kiang
and stories are told of drowning of
hundreds of villagers, of the breaking
of embankments, Hooding of millions
of acres of rice holds, and of great
destruot'on generally by the floods.
Steamers are running inland from the
former banks of the river.
Immigrants are now being allowed
to leave Japan again for Hawaii, the
ban placed upon the emigration by
Japan having been raised shortly before the Empress sailed.

OUT OF THE TROUBLE.
Tueon, Ariz., Aug. 27.���6. F.
JoBsey, United States Chinese inspector here, was acoidentally killed
today. He was investigating a disturbance in his district, where he apparently fell from a ladder and was
killed by the piemature discbarge of
his shotgun. The fact that he was
accused of complicity in the Chinese
smugging ut Nogales, arouses suspicions of suicide, but there are absolutely dispelled by the evidence
bought out at the inquest.

Llpton's Boat Showed up We!!
In a Long Spin Yesterday.
Likely to Be a Strong Favorite When Contestants
Gross Line.
New York, Aug. 27.���The Shamrock
II.  was given a good   long spin today
both inside and   outside Sandy Hook.
She was tried in windward   work and
g
bioad and close reaching.    In fact the
challenger was given everything except a spinnaker run, in a breeze that
sometimes piped up to 12 knots, and
at no time was nnder eight knots.
The good opinion of her speed merits
and ability to carry lofty canvas, was
emphasized. Many yachting experts
who saw her performance call her a
wonderful beat. All say she is the
most dangerous proposition that ever
came over the water, hunting for the
America Cup. She had life in her
every minute. She gathers way with
remarkable rapidity, is quick in stays,
points very high and stands up under
a tremendous spread of canvas like
the proveibial steeple. At no time
today did she put her rail under, even
when bearing around close hauled
and taking a 12 knot breeze aoeam.
With ail this she is a very beautiful
boat under sail, and taken altogether,
is a decided improvement on the old
Shamrock.
Sir Thomas Lipton was on board
during the entire trial, and when
seen at Saudy Hook after the racer
had picked up her mooiings, seemed
much pleased with her showing.
"Tnis is the 20th spin which the boat
has had," said he, "including her
races on the otber side. She is improving all the time, and I am mors
pleased with her today than ever
before. At no time did we carry any.
water on deck; she has life every
minute, and if she does not carry
back the cup, tbe American boat that
beats her may well inspire pride in
your people."
The Shamrock covered the nine
miles from the southwest sprit to
Owls head against the tide of three
knots, in 59 minutes. The run back
over the same course, including six
tacks, was done in 57 minutes.
Of course the people of Nelson are
taking a great interest in the ap-
nroachiug yacht races and if there is
any American money iu Bight it will
not go begging. Shamrock II. is a
strong favorite and it is generally
conceeded that Lipton will be successful in lifting the cup. Of course,
with Canadians the wish may be
father to the thought but it is noticed
that Americans here who would give
a great deal to see the cup stay on this
side have no money to say it will.
There is any amount of Shamrock
money lying atound loose and those
who want to take tho otber end of it
need not look far.
Suoh despatches as the above relating to the work of tbe Shamrock give
eonHdence to the locnl onthusiaBts that
the cup will cross the ocean, lt must
be remembored by Miner readers thnt
nil despatches concerning the big
yachts come through American sources
and ure never for that reason, over
flattering to the challenger. Tho
fulsome praise, however, that tho
American writers are bestowing on
Shamrock II. shows that they regard
tho cup as in a very dangerous
position.
This is made the more evident by
the unsatisfactory work of the new
enp defender Constitution, whioh has
showed herself inferior to tlie Columbia ot two years ago. Successive trials
have shown that the new Shamrock is
faster than Columbia nnd unless Constitution bIiowb herself very fast in
the official trial races to select the de<
fender whioh commence next Saturday, it looks very much like a Lipton
victory. The trial races will take
place at Newport Oe^ween Constitution
and Columbia and tbe latter seems to
be the favorite.
When tho racos commence next
mouth Shamrock II, will probably
be the strong favorite among the betting men.
HE APPROVES
PEACE PLAN
Head of Steel Strikers Willing
to Have Civic Federation
Intervene.
Developments  of Yesterday
Show Steady Gains for
the Corporation
Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 27. ���It is
leBrned late tonighi that President
Shaffer has sent out letters to all
members of the executive oommittee
of the Amalgamated Association inviting their approval of the peace
plan agreed upon last Saturday by the
representatives of the National Civic
Federation at the Amalgamated
Association's headquarters. The plan
proposes:
First, that the New York offer of
July 211 mai'3 by Messrs. Schwab and
Morgan be accepted. This provides
that the tin plate mills resume under
the scale signed for the year beginning July 1st. That Ihe Hoop Company sign for all mills signed for last
year and that the Sheet Steel company sign for all mills signed for last
year except Old Meadow snd Salts-
burg.
Second that a provisional scale oe
arranged but not signed for Painers,
Lindsay and McCuteheon's and the
Clark mill, lea.'iDg recognition of the
union open.
Third, that the United States Steel
Corporation formally declare its attitude toward organized labor, this
declaration to take such form as will
have a reassuring effect upon the men
in the mills.
' President Shaffer aesei ted to thc.e
propositions aud is now awuiting the
result of a vote by mail.
If approved the Civic Federation
people will endeavor to secure an
audience with the Steel Corporation
officials in New York.
Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 27.���Practically the only significant event in the
strike today was the stand taken by
the American Tin Plate Co. In reference to its course in the future. An
official statement fiom tho company
denies that there aie any negotiations
looking to a settlement of the strike
on foot, and authorizes the statement
that mills put into operation during
the strike will bo continued non-union
and all men going to work now will
be retained in their positions. This
statement will have its effect because
of the fact that the Tin Plate trade
has always been considered us among
the strongholds of the Amalgamated
Asrociation and the defi appears to
have been brought about by the association declaring a strike against the
Tin Plate company afier the Bcale tor
the year had been signed. Notwithstanding the fact that the Amalgamated people cluim justification on
the ground that their constitution
provides for such prooedure, the
officials of the Tin Plate company
consider the action a breach of trust
and say that henceforth tbey are determined to cut loose from union
labor   entirely. The     association
officiu.-. treat the threut with indifference, thoir only reply being that the
company oannot carry out its plan because nearly all of the .skilled tin
workers of the country are members
of the association and the plants cannot be run without them. The corporation, however, has started several
of their plants in u way, und claim to
have all the men necessary within
reach to operate tbem in full, as soon
aa the machinory is in proper shape.
Tho developments of tho day^would
appear to evidence slow but sure gains
by tbe corporation.
The following summary gives the
status in this district:

The one mill within this district
where strikers have scored a victory
is at Irondale, Ohio. At tins place
the American Tin Plate Co. was compelled to close down its recently open*

E. R. Shannon, Johnny Lnyeaux and
C.F,Barrlgan,three of the best known
prospectorB and minors in tho Boundary country, have taken a lease on tho
Humming Bird mine, up the north
fork, which has been lying idle for
some time on account of la^k of
funds, says the Orand Forks   Oazotte.
it is tbeir intention to comrr.eneo
developing tbe property immediately,
and to ship tbo ore to the Granby
smelter as fast as it can be extracted.
As the boys aro practical miners tbey
expect to make a good thing out ~f
the deal.
The Humming lliril is a lino property, and one of tbe few base oro
mines which have paid literally "from
the grass, roots,'' thc property having paid nearly every bit of the cost
of the development from ibe shipments of ore taken out in development. Tbe compri-y was out of
funds, however, and there were very
few months when there was money on
hand to commence operations, tlie
payment, of tho miners and the running expenses of the mine being paid
from thc proceeds of oro shipped.
Tho management soon realised, however, that tbis hand to mouth policy
could not make a mine, and it was
decided tn close down pending a rc-
iiigani'/.aiioii of the company or the
floating of some stock yet remaining
unsold in the treasury. Then Messrs.
Shannon, Laycaux and Harrigancame
forward with a proposition to leaso
the mine for six months and operate
It,which proposition being considered
a favorable one for the company, was
accepted.
It is undorstood that work will he
pushed ahead in the tunnel which had
been run in on the vein and that
other development will be planned
and executed for the opening up of
rich ore bodies which are known to
exist on the properly.
The ore of the Summing Bird Is
among the higbeBt grade of any in
the Boundary and runs very oven in
the neighborhood of $20 per ton,which
will leave the boys a neat little sum
for proiit after paying freight and
treatment charges.
MISTAKEN IDENTITY.

Koini-r, who mistook him for ft bear

Further information concerning
tlie proposed smelter at tlni Sullivan
mine, reported in yostoiday's .Miner,
is given by tho Spokesiuun-Review as
follows:
Senator Oeorgc Turner and II. W.
I.nylon of Wapakoiietn, Ohio, who
represent   the control of   the Sulliavn
Croup company, left yesterday morning
for Kimbi-rley, lt. 0��� to look over tbo

upon a location foi too sineller which
tho company expects to build. They
expected to join Ui-orge Hull of
Toledo, Ohio, nt NcIfoii, II. (.!., and
would go with bi.n to the mine. Mr.
Hull is one of the group of Ohio men
who are heavily interested in the

The plans for financing the smelter
have been protty well formulated by
the directors of the coinpany. lt is
expected that .185,000 will be needed
to carry forward the enterprise. A
group of the heaviest stockholders

;^TWO SUCCESSFUL CANADIANS.
It is reported that Charles M. Hays,
who won bis spurs as a railroad man
with the Wabash and Grand Trunk
railways, and who subsequently took
charge of the Southern Pscifio system,
lias been appointed general manager
of the New York Central, which is
said to be '.he most important railway position in the world. Mr. Hays
has forced his way to this position by
sheer force of his wonderful ability,
which has finally compelled tho
splendid recognition which has just
been accorded to him. From his first
entrance into tho railroad business
Mr. Hays determined to be a complete
maBter of it and bent all his energies,
all his faculties, all of his time, to
the accomplishment of that purpose.
In time it camo to he recognized that
he knew a littlo more about the railway business than those employed in
a like capacity with him and ho was
promoted from one position to another
until ho was made tbe manager
of the Wabash railway. In this place
he revealed that he was a better manager than the avenge manager and
conducteu the road's affairs so
ably, and showed such remarkable aptness that he soon won tho
recognition of tho directorates of other
roads. This resulted in the offer of
the management of the Orand Trunk.
The life and vim that he infused into
the affairs of that road led to his
securing the position of goneral manager of the Southern Pacific, one of
the more important systoms of the
United States, and finally bis present
and most important place in the
railway world.
Hays' success shows that there is
always room at the top. There is now
not suoh a great difference in men
after all, but the individual who understands his business,no matter what
it is, a little better than those around
him, is always certain of substantial
recognition, while he who is oareloss,
shiftless and endeavors to give the
least possible service for the salary
whioh ho is receiving is never promoted and is soonest dismissed when
there is the least necessity for cutting
down a working forco. The success
which Mr. Hays bas attained' should
serve as an example to those who are
endeavoring to make a sucoess ful career for themsolves.
Another Canadian, who has made a
prononncid success of the railroad
business even greater than that of Mr.
Hays, is James J. Hill, of tho Great
Northern railway. A branch of the
system which Mr. Hill controls extends into this city and he nas steamers and other branch lines which tap
tho minus ut other points in the Kootenays. Mr. Hill started life as a
Canadian farmer boy, without capital
or influential friends to back him,
and yet he has by his native talent,
wonderful energy,aibilty and capacity
for sustained effort workod his way
to the front, till today he Is at the
hoad of, and a large stockholder in
ono of the big railway systems in
tho western portion of the United
States, and is considered by many as
the loading railway man of the continent. He accomplished tho remarkable feat of building what Is called a
transcontinental line, without a dollar
of subsidy or a land grant from the
government. Tho Canadian Pacific,
the Northern Pacific and tho Central
Pacific (which is now a portion of tbe
Nouthorn Pacific system) and the
Southorn Pacific all received government aid, but this was not tho caes
with tho Great Northern, or at least,
with tho larger portion of It.
Thirty years ago Mr.Hill worked as
a laborer and was tho oompanion of
those with whom ho onrned his living, but now be is the business associate of mon like 3. Picrpont Morgan,
who promoted the billion dollar
steel trust, and who is now endeavoring to make a like combination of tho
principal railways of the continent,
and who contemplates acquiring the
control of tho Canadian Pacific because It Is essential to thc success of
his operations. That Mr. Morgan
should select Mi. Hill to assist bim
in tho carrying out of the big deal
from among the thousands of railway men in tho United States in but
an acknowledgement of bis almost
transcendent ability as a railway
manager. In other words Mr. Morgan
considers that Mr. Hill is the very
host man that he could select to co-
opoiato  with    him   in   wbat    will

Mr. Hill understands tho railroad
business a little bettor, Mr. Morgan
thinks, than any other railway owner
or railway president in the United
States.
The careers of Messrs. Hill and
Hays should serve as object lessons for
those who wish to get on in life, as
they are examples of what an individual can accomplish if bo understands his business a littlebettei than

CAN FIGHT UNDER WATER.
A cable dispatch to a Chicago paper
a few days since announced that
Franco had solved the problem of the
submarine torpodo boat and is now
ready to sweep the British Navy from
the seas, capture C-ibralter, mane the
Mediterranean n French lake und to
accomplish sundry other wonderful
things. While it is possible that the
Frenoh naval enginecis have made
some betterments in the submarine
vessel still there are drawbacks to that
typo of war craft which militate
against them and tend to make them
ineffective. The principal fault is
the difficulty of seeing from the glass
portholdos of these craft when under
water. Tbe range of the vision,
even whore poweriul searchlights are
used, is small and this greatly handi.
caps thc utility of these engines of
destruction. While the French naval
authorities aro preparing submarine
petards with which to hoist tho warships of the Hritish navy to destruction it is not to be supposod that tho
Britisli Lords of the Admiralty are
idle, and, if hostilities commence and
tbe Gallic destroyers begin operations,
tbere will be some surprises in
storo for them. The Hritish sailors
have nearly always been able to more
than bold thoir own on the surface of
the water, in such affairs as the destruction ol tho Spanish armada and
when they met the combined French
and Spanish Hoots at the battle of
Trafalgar, and if tbe naval battles of
the future are to bu fought to a finish
undor tho water they will be certain
to be able to render a good account of
themselves. Submarine fighting,
fortunately, is a game at which tbo
British as well as the French can
piny.
EDITOKIAL NOTES.
Edmund Audran, the French composer, who has just passed away at the
beginning of his sixtieth year, was
possessed of a considerable talent as a
writer of clever catchy airs, and of
comic opera. In this country his best
known operas ure "Olivette' and
''The Mascot," which have enjoyed
long runs in tho theatres both ln
Canada au . tbe United States, the
latter opera, however, being the more
noritonous of the two. The catchy
airs like "Bob Up Serenely," "In the
North Sea Lived n Whale," "Gobblo,
Gobble,"and others are still sung
and played in households r.ini bave a
oharm about tin. in which will cause
them to he repeated for many years to
come, while "Tho Mascot" too will
doubtless long survive even the memory of ils composer.
When the opportunity comes for displaying heroism comes the hero is not
always absent. Tbe statement of
I'rofossor Koch that tuberculosis cannot bo transferred from cattle to
human beings is to be put to the tost.
Those Interested In the theory havo
wished to test it on noiuo human subject, but volunteers who desired to
risk their lives In the cause of science
nnd to determine nbothor Dr. Koch
waB right or wrong havo not been
numerous,but ono has been found in T.
L. Monson, wbo is dairy commiHsionor
for  Colorado.      lie  has confidence in
the correctness of Professor Koch's
conclusion and offers himself as a
subject for practical experiment.
There is a condition to the offer,
however, which shows that he has a
lingering doubt, as ho wants an annuity provided for his family should
the test result fatally.
A general agitation is on, led by
Japan, for a movement for the extermination of rats all over the world.
It is urged against the rat that it Is
not only a destructive nuisance but
that it is a distributor of tbe bubonic
plague and other forma of destructive
potllence. This is so well recognized
thatjwhenevor a plague scare arises one
of thc first precautions taken ia to at
tempt to destroy the rats. The
trouble however, is to Kill them ln
such a manner that tbey will not become a Bcurce of disease after they
are dead. Tbo Sanitary Record of
London gives the rosult of some experiments in London which weie successful. Those reveal that the rodents can
be best destroyed by means of sulphur
dioxide. The gas seems to have an
attraction for the rodents and they are
lured from their holes by its odor, and
are su__.oi.ated. The bodies can then
be gathered up and sent away with
the household garbage.
The Miner acknowledges the receipt of an invitation to attend the
exhibition of the British Columbia
Agricultural Association at Victoria,
which opens on October 1st and closes
on Ootober 5th. The exhibition is to
be opened by and under the distinguished patronage of their Royal
Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of
Cornwall and York. Among the attractions will be two days' horse
races, lumbermen's tournament,
miners' contest, Indian dances, etc.
It is claimed ln the advertisements
sent out by tho management of the
fair, that Victoria, the capital city,
has tbe push, wealth and beauty of
the Province, and is also the best
maiket in tho Pacific Northwest. One
thing is obvious in the above���that

THE PIONEERS
OF PROGRESS
What Has Been Done In the
Way of Road Building
Around Nelson.
Changes ln the Avenues of
Communication Since
1890.
Tlie building of a wagon road west
from Nelson means the disappaarance
of tlie last, but one ol the well-worn
trailf* by which for years all communication between Nelson and the outer
world was kept up. As far as known
(he Hist mineral location of any importance after the Silver King, near
Nelson was that of the Gold King,
made some time in the early 80's.
This claim is a free gold proposition,
and is located a short distance weBt
uf Cottonwood lake. A small and
import, :t mill was put np at tbe time
and a uail cut to the lake at   Nelson.
During the construction of the Nelson
& Koit Sheppard railway the suppy
load of the line followed the course of
, the trail from Nelson as far as tne
mine. The mill was finally removed
k a more promising location only the
uid carina now remaining to mark
tlie terminus of the trail and the
wagon road soon became blocked by
slides and fallen timber, and is now
totally useless. The Gold King has
since been restated and it is said,
gives promise of becoming a good
property. The next trail to be built
.,'om NelBon was that to Sp.ost's
banding over part of whlcn the new
wagon road is now being constructed.
Shortly after this, the trail now
known as Burn's trail wns put in for
the purpose of reaching the good pastures that lie In the valley abont thrfc
miles touth of the city. It was cut by
Joseph Wilson, who supplied meat to
the camp at that time.    All  along   it
i timothy     and    clover     seed      were
sprinkled and produced luxuriant and
plentilD] pasturage for the cattle and
sheep which   were   brought   in large
herds and Kept  there till needed, the
consumption o. meat   at that  time in
kelson not being   very   gieat.     ThiB
[tiail goes up   the eaBt side of Cottonwood croon for about   three miles and
en   branches off np  the first fork of
Cottonwood to   the   eaBt   and  thence
lack of Bald Mountain and  around to
be   head of   Anderson  oreek.     It   is
till in fair condition   and is used   by
irospoctors   to   reaoh   the    numerous
laims  that     lie   about   three   miles
Duth of Six Mile point.   Several cat-
:1c   that   escaped   from Nelson a year
Igo this spi ing are still alive   in   the
ills along the line uf   the   trail,    al-
hough many attempts have been made
0 shoot them.    They are now   wilder
han deer aud successfully keep out of
each.    How   they   got   through   the
(inter is  unknown, bnt having come
lo Nelson from the prairies,  probably
lasily   adapted themselves to the new
lomlitions   under   which   they    were
jlaced for there   are now said   to  be
f~' of them, while only three escaped.
The   fiist   trail   to be built, to the
Iii 1 ver King was a branch from tbe
iovernment trail from Nelson to
Iproat's Landing, at 49-Creek, It
olluwed the creek up to the head,
vlicre another branch to the Poor-
nan, May and Jennie, and other prop-
rties commenced and over the sum*
nit to Toad Mountain. With the outing of the trail up Cottonwood past
he Athabasca mill about a mile to
lie Silver King, the older trail was
arely used, except by an occasional
inspector. A branch above the Atha-
|bsca led to the Tough Nut and Morn-
jig gioups. In the fall of l-��0 the
fagon road to the Silver King was
umiuenced, being completed in the
of 1891, superceding the trail en-
Jicly, although tbe branch leading
1 the Morning and other groups is
lill in use.
J East of Nelson on the arm of Koote
lay Lake the first trail leading into
pe mo'intains is the one which foi
ows   Six-Mile   oreek   up     from   the
Iionth for five miles and then
ranches off to the Monument group,
nsslng the Gold Wedge and other
laims, A wagon load bas also been
"ilt along this touts as far as the
'old Wedge.
I Wo8t of Six-Mile tbe next road is
"S one leading to the Molly Oibson
pine at tho head of Kokanee oreek.
creased from $2,.-|(.<l OT0 to $3,000,000
for that purpose, and the new stock
will be issued as a bonus. The
Turner-Layton-Ilull inteieits are
credited with holding about 1,050,COO
shares uut of the present capital. It
isexpsc.ed that this will be enough
to guarant.e the pa.sage of an n_iend-
raent to the company coostitulion, so
aa to provide for an inc.ease in the
capital.
The location of the smelter is still
speculaave, but it is believed by the
north countiy people that it will go
up at Marysviile. where there is a
magnificent water piwer. There is a!
fine location a, a center for ores from
nearly all of tbe St, Marv's   country.
Anot.ie ��� pcint to ta determined is
wnether the smelter shall be built
now or next sp ing. It will take a
���a.-quantity of brick, estimated at
1 2!i0,000, in order to complete the
plant, and the problem o.' getting
that quantity now is confronting the
ilir.eturaU. uf the Sullivan    company.

Sidney Norman, a well known mining broker and capitalist of Spokane,
is stopping at the Hume. Mr. Norman
has just returned from a trip to
Alaska and Prince of Wales Island.
At the latter place Sam Silverman, a
well known figuro in Nelson in the
early 00 s, has bonded the Copper
Mountain jrntp of claims. On the
1st of August Silverman paid $5,COO
in closing the deal, which calls for
the payment of ift.00,000 in Ootober.
The parties interested with Silverman are principally Helena and Butte
people. The principal vein on the
property is from 15 to 30 feet in width
and the one shipment of ltto tons of
picked ore which was made to the
Ta una smelter ran HO per cent, copper. The ore is taken to the sea coast
by an aeial tramway 6,400 feet long.
There are several other copper properties on the island, but the Copper
Mountan is tbe only one on which
extensive development is being done.
Mr. Norman said that conditions here
were quieter than he had expected to
find tbem. He said that the market
for Canadian lead was not nearly as
bad as in the States, where the lead
trust were starving out all the small
operators. The ore bodies here were
so large anil rich that conditions
could not but improve with time.
Mr. Nonnan leaves today for Slocan
to look over some properties there.
A. F. Rosenberger returned Monday
evening from Camborne, and reports
that the Oyster and Camborne groups
are looking extremely well. On the
Camborne the ore chnte has been
traced for a distance of five hundred
feet. By means of a flume, 500 inches
of water are now available for working the property. F. C.Green, of Nel
son, is now engaged in surveying the
claim for the purpose of obtaining
crown grants. The London Sc B. 0.
Uoldfield have a number of packers
employed taking in rail for tramway
to be bu'lt on the Eva group.
YeBterday at the record oflloe the
transactions were confined to the
granting of two certificates of work
as follows, on the King Fractional, to
A. W. Boy.de, and on the Nellie N.,

THE CITY
The tng Hercules returns this morning to Kaslo with the barge to bring
down another load of marble for the
post office building.
The competition for the brass quoits
presented to the Quoit Club by Mr.
Honeyman takes place on Thursday
afternoon at 2 p. m. sharp. Members
desiring to take part must be on hand
before draw takes place 01 they cannot
obtain a position in   the competition.
The captain of the International,
while waiting the arrival of the train
to connect with the boat at Five-Mile
point yesterday, landed five handsome lake trout, the smallest of which
was a pound, and the largest three
pounds,in a remarkably short space of
time.    The bait used was raw beef.
There will be a rehearsal of the
Christian Endeavor choir this evening
at the Presbyterian church. The
desire is to practice the new music
which is to be sung during the session
of the society next week. Mr. Park-
inon will act a leader. All the singers
in the city desirons of helping this
choir are request 3d to be present.
The offlcors of the Kokanee deny
that the International beat the former
steamer in by fifteen minutes from
Kaslo to Five-Milo point on Monday
as claimed by the crew of the International, and state that they were
unaware that thore was any race on the
occasion roferred to in yestorday's
Minor, as the Kokaneo was running
at a low pressure and left Kaslo after
the International.
At 8.20 last night tbe electric lights
in the circuit which included most of
tho business houses and hotels first
burned dimly and then went out altogether. Lamps were hunted up and
lit, but twenty minutes later the
power came on again for about fivo
minutes, and went off again for nearly
half an hour. It is supposed that the
trouble was caused by some obstuc
tion getting in the flume.
ThiB fish stofy is from The Ymir
Mirror: "0. A. Lovell ot the Waldorf
and Paul Dellarnis spent Sunday,
Monday and part of Tuesday fishing
at Erie, and as proof of the sport they
had brought back with tbem '.100
trout. Harry Ashcroft of Nelson, as
a result ot a couple of days' fishing in
the same waters took home with him
1,000 speckled beauties. A. Ii. liuck-
woith, J. P., hail a basket of 120
trout fcr an afternoon's fhblng at
Erie. Others with the rod have been
equally successful."
Last evening abuut D.30 A. Poole,
a clerk at thc Canada Drug Sc Hook
Co.' store was cutting a block o'
phosphorus. The knife was rathei
dull anil a few small particles broke
off and fell on the table where they
almost instantly dried and ignited.
Before Mr. Poole could drop the large
piece it aiso burst into flames,severely
burning bim. As quickly as possible
he obtained a wet towel and smothered the fire, although a lot ofthe phosphorus went up in smoke, filling the
store with choking fumes for half an
hour. ^____
The choir and the committoe ap-
pointe d to select the organ for St.
Savioui's church met on Monday evening and decided to take the instrument which has been on trial in tbe
church for some time past. Tbe organ
was manufactured by the Compensating Pipe Organ Co of Toronto, under
a recent patent. It is so arranged
that pipes and reeds play in harmony
with each other. This has hitherto
been impossible bccnuHe changes of
temperature causo the tone of the
pipes to go sharp and the reeds flat.
Hy a simplo device the pipes and reeds
can be easily brought into harmony
when they get out of tune. The
organ was placed in the church by
the Grundy Music Co., of Winnipeg.

HOW TO BUILD A BODY
One ol the most important discoveries to date is the application of the
right kind of food to rebuild the lost
substances of tho body, thrown off by
tbe active,nervous work of Americans.
Careful investigation by experts in
food and diatetics, nas brought out
the fact that albumen, which is contained in various foods, is auted upon
by phosphate of potash, not such as
obtained ln drug stores, but such as
is found in certain parts of the field
grainH in most minnto particles,
arranged in Nature's laboratory, not
man's.
The part of the grains containing
phosphate of potash Is used in the
manufactuie of Orape-Nuts Food,
therefore the active, nervous, pushing
brain worker can feed the body with
food that goSB directly to the rebuilding of tbe broken clown gray matter in
tho brain, solar plexus and nerve centers all over tho body,with tho result
that tho individual who refreshes and
rebuilds the body with proper material of this sort, obtains a definite
result, which he can feel and know
of and which is apparent to his
friends.
A vigorous brain end nervous system is of the greatest importance to
*ny business man or brain worker.

BANQUET TO MK  OOTELIUS.
Departing 0. P- R. Engineer Wined
and Dined Hy Nelson Friends.
At the Hume hotel last night Mr.
Fred P. Outelius, who has been resident engineer of the C. P. R. in Nelson was tendered a banquet by Nelsoo
friends prior to bis leaving for
Montreal where he will occupy a
more important position with the company. Ho leaves for his new home
tomorrow morning, first visiting the
coast. He has been a very popular
citizen of Nelson and a most etlioicnt
member o' the C. P. R. staff. The
banquet last night testifies to tlie
truth of tlie former statement and bis
promotion to the latter. The Nelson
yards will remain as an evidence of
bi;skill as nowhere on the big system
is there a terminal point laid out better as far as tracks and buildings are
concerned. The entire work was
under the direction of Mr. Outelius.
Mayor Fletcher occupied tho chair
last evening and the guests oomprised
moBt of the local C. P. R. staff antl
many prominent business and professional men of the city. When the excellent menu haa been fully discussed
and the patriotic toast diunk, the
health of the guest of honor was
pledged in a bumper. Mr. Outelius'
personal start presented him with a
beautifully fitted travelling bag and
an album containing views of the
Kootenays, espeoially that part in
which Mr. Outelius has beon interested. The presentations wero marie by
J. C. Blandy and 0. F, Freeman-Lake.

The question of proper procedure to
avoid confusion is a vexed one and lias
naturally caused some feeling. Tbe
most serious spat was among the
royal reception committee and tbe city
aldermen. Through the mayor the
committee informed the aldermen that
as it was not good form for his highness to dine with his suite, the mayor
would entertain tlio Duke und Duchess
at luncheon while the aldermen could
have lunch with the prince's staff and
gentlemen in waiting some place else.
The aldermen resented the message
and used very forcible language in
condemning the action of the committee aod threatened to "bust the whole
business" if the plans were not
altered.    Thev were altered.

"tvID" WEST PARDONED.
Criminal Who Testified iu the O'Brien
Case Liberated.
Olympia, Aug. 27.���George West,
better known as "Kid" West, who is
serving a five years term at Walla
.Walla for burglary committed in
Seattle, was today pardoned by Gov.
Rogers.
West has been considered a dangerous crook, and though the burglary
be committed was in itself insignifi
cunt, his previous teoord and resistance of arrest gave what were considered good grounds for a still sentence.
About fifteen months ago West entered the room of a sample salesman in
Soattle, where ho was discovered by
the occupant of tho room. Wost
attumptod to cut his way out with
a razor, but was finally overpowered
and his conviction and sentence subsequently followed. West's purdon nt
this time seems to bo largely a reward for his assistance in the conviction of O'Brien, the murderer of Clayson, itolfe and Olson in the Yukon.
West was taken to Alaska, after his
own conviction, and was un important witness in O'ltrien's trial. The
weight of the pressure brought on the
governor to secure West's pardon is
not known here. Tbe governor todny
gave out a typewritten statement to
the representatives of the newspapers
here which embodied bis reasons for
issuing the pardon. The governor's
