Report That Difficulties Will
Be Settled Within
a Week,
Kidnaper In Montreal Tries
to Carry Off a
Child,
(SPECIALS TO THE MINER.)
Montieul, July 9.���Ilotli sides arc
getting tired of the trnekmens' strike
on the C. P. R. Evidences today point
to a settlement within a week which
will be based principally upon the
recognition by the company of the
men as an organized body with reasonable concessions in respect to conditions of employment antl wages.
The only obstacle to be removed is the
barrier erected when negotiations
were broken off. If a disinterested
party paves the way to further conference this difficulty will be speedily
settled. This information somes from
good sources on both sides.
Five Galicians were brought to Nelson Monday, and put to work yester
dav morning on tho switches west of
the yards. It appears that tbey had
understood they were to be put lit railway construetiou, and on finding the
state of things stopped work nt noon.
The olliials had expected to have had
two gangs at work, but one lot backed
out Monday night and the other
shortly after.
At Calgary the people of the city are
still supporting the strikers, by providing for the striking Galicians,
who are eiuuding out on the encounter us determinedly as the Canadians.
At the present time it appears as if
the "Slavs," instend of being the industrial rival of the Canadian, is going to be his supporter. In tbeir
���effort to support the striking trackmen, the Galicians aro receiving support and financial assistance from unexpected quarters. The citizens of
Calgary are aiding them by public
subscriptions and among them a sum
ol 825 from the Hon. Clifford Sifton.

Terrible Death ln
the North,
A few dayB ago an accident occurred near the loop, on thc Crow's Nest
line when, owing to the spreading of
the rails, the caboose and a couple of
cars were run down the embankment,
and fell down a ravine, the distance
of HO feet. No casualties were reported, but the brakemanj had a narrow
escape for his life and had it not
been for his presence of mind
jumping the caboose before it went
down he would probably havo been
seriously injured.
Montreal, July 9���Great excitement was caused in tht northern part
of the city last evening when a shabbily dressed man grabbed little
Blanche Chaput, St, Dominique street
from a group of little ones playing on
the sidewalk and made off with her.

screams, gave chase and wus immediately followed by others. The kidnapper raced nt breakneck speed up
one street and crossed another for
many blocks,Jwhen the pursuit becoming hot he was compelled to drop the
oliild in order to escape. The chase
Confined but the criminal made for

council last evening a deputation
representing the civic committee of
the Trades and Labor Council interviewed the Mayor and aldermen on
the ques ion of labor in connection
with public works to be carried on
in this city as provided for in recently
ratified by-laws. The deputation impressed upon the council tbe desirability of the work being accomplished by day labor wherever practicable,
and that in awarding contracts preference should be given to local people. The council were very favorable
to the proposition and expressed their
intention of giving local men the
preference.

States commissioner for liluff City,
Alaska, recording district, to a relative of C. \V. Sinnot, formerly of Apo-
hoque, Kings County, this province,
announces iho death of Sinnot aud
two companions in the wilds of the
bleak American territory from exposure. Sinnot's family is one of the
most prominent in King's County,
Ilis companions were not known at
his old home, but as Sinnot had lived
several years in Port Angeles,
Wash., it is thought they belonged in
that town. Their names were Geonge
Vendewall and John Collidge. The
body of Vendewall, along with Sinnot
was found in a tent wheie he had
been to procure provisions for himself
and partners From the way in which
the bodies were found it looked as il
the tent had been blown away and
they had tried to hold it down from
the inside.

FIRE AT AINSWORTH.
Town   Had    a   Narrow   Escape
From the Flames Yesterday.
(SPBCIAL TO THE) MINKIl.)
Ainsworth, July 9.���A fire that at
one time gave promise of wiping out
the town started here at 1 p. m. today in Dr. Henry's store. As soon
as the alarm was given everyone in
town turned out to do his best, but
it was impossible to save the building and also the publio hall and
offices in tbe rear, Tbe latter building was blown up to save the town as
it afforded an avenue for the flames
from the place where they originuted
to nearly all the other buildings in
town. Tho citizens worked like Tio-
jans and saved the town only by their
utmost labors.
An Interesting Case Oc-upied Stipendiary Magistrate All Day Yesterday.
An interesting law oase was head
before Police Magistrate Crease at tho
court house yesterday, winch Is ol
particularly local interest and is of a
somewhat unique character, being the
first case of thu kind coining before
tho local bencb.
Regis Robitalille, who lives on a
ranch a short distance from the _ity,
about two months ago noticed something floating along the lake, in bis
direction, which he took to he drift
wood, and proceeded to haul it
ashore. It proved to be a couple of
rafts belonging to tho Nelsou Tramway company, which had drifted
down stream and if they had not been
rescued would have been wrecked on
the rapids a little lower down.
When it wns known that ihe floats
were in his possession the owners demanded them and he refused to return them, lie was arrested and put
in the Provincial jail. When the
case was called yesterday the defendants put in ni evidence, but is relying entirely on the testimony of the
p'nintiff's witnesses, who are Alex
Grant, Supt. A, Muson of thc Tramway Co., and Constable Young.
The evidence went to show that the
defendant was arrested without a
warrant, and simply because he refused to deliver up the rafts, before
being paid, He demanded S'.j and
was offered ST. but was not tendered
it. Mr. Bullock-Webster represented
the prosecution, and S. S. Taylor,
thc defendant. The magistrate reserved his verdict until Thursday.
Mr. C. Rykert, of Rykert's, Kootenay river, the custom's official of that
place, ia in the city and is a guest
at the Phair. He expects to remain
over in the city for a fciv days.
About a dozen summonses have
been issued against Lno keepers of
dogs without tugs, and they���the
owners, not the dogs���will bo called
upon to appear before the police magistrate on Thursday morning next to
give a logical reason why their dogs
should not wear a tag. If no good
reason can be produced they will, in
all probability, be mulct.a the
amount of the tax In addition to a
second tax, in the nature of a fine
There aro about fifty of these summonses to be issued which will be
presented in batches so as not to over
work thc magistrate.
Another important mining deal occurred in Nelsou yesterday, when Mr.
E. Bigelow, of Lyndville, Vermont,
president of the International Gold
Mining & Development Company,
took up the bond on the Mastodon
group, on Iron Mountain, in the Salmon river country, Mr. Bigelow and
the secretary of the company, Mi.
Whitcher, of Stanstead, QueVc, havo
been in town far the past week
awaiting the result of the assay of the
ore taken from the thirty-foot level,
which was received yesterday, and totalled $ii5. The ore is a sulphide of
iron, carrying gold and silver.
The company's head oflice is at
Lyndville, Vermont, and it operates
several properties in various districts.
Early last year the officers of the
company made a tour of California,
Utah, Oregon, Aiizona, Montana and
Nevada, but not coming across any
satisfactory investment they returned
east without securing any claims. Iu
June they came west again and visited among other places the Salmon river country, and bonded several properties, among them the Mastodon
gronp for a consideiable sum. Six
men have been at work right along,
and the present trip was made by Mr.
Bigelow to ascertain what results bail
been obtained. Both he and Mr.
Whitcher express themselves as highly pleased at the progress that has
been made. One shaft that has been
sunk thirty feet exposes a vein seven feet wide, and as the hanging wall
has not yet been reached the vein is
probably much wider. The property iH
composed of three full claims, of
which the Mastodon is the one on
which the principal operations have
taken place. The present force of men
will be kept ut work sinking on the
main shaft for a time.
Messrs. Bigelow. and Whitchor left
lait night /or Lyndville,where a meeting of the company will be called immediately on their arrival, and arrangements made for opening np tbe
property as rapidly as possible.
The greatest need of tbo property
at present is a wagon road for four
and a half miles to connect with the
road from Erie.
There is considerable activity in thc
section in which Iron Mountain i:
situated, a large numbei of prospect
ors being at present ut work looking
ud new locutions and doing assessment
and development work on the claims
already staked.
On the King Solomon group, which
is situated in the neighborhood of the
Mastodon, a contract, has just been let
for the sinking of a shaft loo feet to
Jim Herron, of Erie. This group is
operated by nn Indiana syndicate, and
ths showings so far hnvu been very
rich.
The opening up of these two prop-
nities by eastern companies, coming
after the recent slump in mine values is n most encouraging sign, and
will doubtless do much towards further development of the district. One
the wagon road is completed communication will be opened between
the railway, and a number of good
properties, somo of which have already considerable piles of ore on
their dumps awaiting shipment. Erie
is already feeling the good effects of
the recent changes, and building and
trade generally are said to be very
brisk there.
The following are the mining records of yestordny: Certificates of

A force of men started development
work on the Mirerva claim, a
mile helow town yesterday. The
claim has been located and abandoned
several times and known as the Lake-
view, Alma aud Minerva. The ore is
of good quality, but the vein is very
small. Messrs. Maitland and llnrk
are working it and intend to prosecute
development work until they have ascertained how the property ii likely to
turn out.

A little ssenc occurred a few days
ago. between the Galicians and some
imported laborers which almost
amounted to civil war. The C. P. R.
are reported to have brought from the
east a number of men to work on the
sections in the west, as extra gangs,
but when they arrived and realized
the condition of things existing they
refused to go to work and hired themselves out to work on railroad construction and in other fields of labor
On Sunday last fl crowd of foreigners
were being br.ught through Medicine
Hat, on the C. P. R, colonist cars.
When the train stopped at the station
they were attacked by the Gailcians
who made a laid on the cars, smashed tbe windows of the coaches and
made other demonstrations of dUnp-
proval, equnlly unpleasant to the new
arrivals. The Galician element is becoming entirely disgusted with the
situation in that part of the district
and are gradually returning to their
homes nt Edmonton, where many of
thoin havo farms, They declare that
they will never work for the C. P. R.
again. After the attack on the foreigners at Medicine Hat some of them
boarded the train and attempted to
steal a ride, by getting or. the top of
the oars and otherwise hiding themselves alo it the coaches. It was some
time aflei the train had left the de-
put that they were found, when the
train was immediately backed up to
tho station aud all the Galicians
wero forced from the cars. Much excitement was caused over the incident at that point and extra precautions are being taken to obviate a repetition of the affair.
The   Rev. W.   Munroe  in bis    sermon on   Sunday   evening last at   the
Congregational Church referred to the
trackmen's   strike,     and     asked   tlio
question,   "Can wo   say   men aie unreasonable   when   they demand   more
than 81.40   per day, when   the   owner
of the tools   they   work   with   makes
ten times as much'.'    Thc laborer says,
eomparc me with   tne   railway   magnate.    I    brought   as   much    iutn tho
world. I boar as good  a   character,   I
have as goml a biaiii, a�� good a heait,
hnvu as   valuable a   Soul und   when   1
dio   shall   take   as   much out   of the
world,    Why   should   I   be   crushed','
My wife denied   the   comforts of life,
ui} children denied the   privileges   of
education   and   culture?"    Until   tho
Government regulates  wages  upon  a
just basis,  argued    Mr.    .Munroe,    the
laborer   must strike lor his own freedom, gathering   around   a   solidarity
of IntetestB.    The men who   toil form
tho pivotal point   of   production   and
prosperity,   and constitute   thu   vital
force that will compel   thu solution of
inaiiy   of the perplexities of our modern   civilization.    Wo   cannot   lgnoib
the   fact   that   many     who    acquire
wealth    win    their   success   along    a
track   marked    by    poverty,   stricken
hoiucH, crime and ruin.    Willi the universal   desire   for    justice   breaking
forth int.. flames as   it   Is   today,   we
need not bo    surprised    when   strikes
occur.    No one for a moment supposes
that   the     rapid     accumulation       of
wealth comes from the pockets of   tho
directors, us part of it comes from the
laborers, and the mure tho   one   class
reeleves   the     less   there   is   for   the
other.''

Preferential trade within the Empire has once atfain become the subject
of general discussion. This time it
bas been precipitated by the detate'
and division on a motion in the Imperial Parliament to admit West Iii-
dian sugar at a lower rate of duty
than the foreign product. The debate
���was animated and of wide range, and
the motion was defeated by a vote of
Mil to 16, This is taken to mean that.
free trade has such a hold od the
Hritish people that tbey can never be
induced to impose duties for tbe benefit of any colony. To Oo so,it is further said, would be to imperil tlmir
largo foreign trade, offering it op as
a sacrifice to the greatly inferior benefits that might arise from the increased trade with the colonics uniler a
preferential tariff.
No doobt (ireat llritain is wedded
to free trade. So she was for many
year, to the corn laws. All countries
are more or less wedded to the conditions tbat for the tune pievnil in
them. No doubt, also, the evidence
of our senses proves that under free
trade (Ireat llritain has experienced
oommeicial prosperity in a wondprful
degree. And it is an aphorism of
the wise to leave well enough aione.
But just here comes in tbe question,
Is it well enough1.' Is it not possible
to make it better'.1 It is not a question alone for the Britisli manufacturer, or the Hritish consumer, but for
the general interest of the Empire at
lnrge. That there is overwhelming
opposition proves DOthing further
than that much conversion is necessary before Imperial preferential trade
can be carried. It does not prove
that such a preference would be injurious, any more than opposition
to tho .Reform Hill proved that
reform   waa   not   necessary.
This question of piefereutlal trade
is an Imperial one. It n.ay bj: hard to
corvert free trade Britain to this
view of it. but notwithstanding the
vote on West Indian sugar there arc
evidences that considerable progress
has already been made iu that direction. We talk of Imperial unity;
how nan there be unity without interest? If we are to have a united
Empire, with a common purpose and

casein half a nutshell: "A strike
is in progress in a Colorado mine. We
do not know the rrerits involved, and
they are immaterial in this connection. Already several men have been
Killed and wounded, and the last report was that the Governor of the
State was about to call out the militia
and instruct them to use whatever
force may be necessary to oust the
strikers fiom the mine. Here we
have men striking; next the men
seizing the property of their employers; then an attempt to dislodge them
and the loss of valuable lives, and
now a piospeetwc collision between
the strikers and the armed force of
the tiovenur.cjM .iccouipanied ~'ith
more bloodshed. JTo pretend that a
system whicli iesds to such results ia
worthy of being maintained without
alteration is too absurd for us to suppose that any one would put himself
in the apparent attitude of taking it,
except for the puipose of misrepre-
BGnting tlie position taken by Some
one else"
A paragraph in Tho Toronto Globe
rfladb! ''An attempt is being made
to collect Canadian opinion on the
subject of the Judicial Committee of
the Privy Couneil. We have not met
with any violent demonstrations of
feeling one way or the other. Not
many of us can Hiford the luxury of
an appeal to the I'rivy Council. The
Division Couit is a more lively topic."
No, it isn't. The Division Court is not
up at nil, and the Judicial Committee
of the Privy Couneil is. Two Canadian Ministers are in London, attending a conference called by Mr. Chamberlain tu consider whether a more
Imperial character could not be given
to thu Committee than it ha_ now.
Some urgency has been attached to
the matter, perhaps, by the resolution
of the Australian Commoinvealth to
make its supreme court supreme. Thu
Imperial Mr. Chamberlain desires
thnt all portions of tho Empire should
retain the coiiiicction which lias existed through tho Judicial Committee,
and it is a desire with which a large
majority of Canadians are in hearty
sympathy. If the Canadian Minis
ters. as reported, have endeavored to
surround   tbis feeling  of attachment
with any sort of doubt, they have
misrepresented the sentiment of the
country, and surprise and disappointment at their doing so is not to be
turned aside by a pleasantry.
OKANAOAN    FRUIT.
Kootenays  Becoming   a Good Market
For Various Products.
Mr; F.J.Haker, manager of the Vernon News, who is on his way east to
Toronto for a vacation,stopped off yes
terday to spend a week in Nelson en
route. He reports that it is a very
good year foi crops and cattle in the
Okanagan, and from present mdii
tions the fruit crop will also be first
class. Till two years ago nearly all
the products of the Okanagan valley
were shipped to the Coast, the Okanagan fruit proving much superior to
that bought up from Washington, and
finding ready sale. Now, although the
demand from the coast is greater than
before,a large quantity of their crops,
especially of fruit,is being sent to var-
imis_Kootenay points, among which
Nelson is naturally the leading. When
the Iloundary road is completed
through to l'enticton a still larger
quantity of this trade will be di ;erted
here.
Mr.llaker is very much pleased with
Nelson, -vhich he thinks is an exceedingly   handsome and well built town.

HEARD AROUND
HOTEL CORRIDORS |
Each eveiiing groups of men may be
Been gathered on the piazzas and in
front of tbe various hotels or the city,
enjoying the grateful coolness after
the day's heat. The majority ot them
are strangers in town, bent either on
business or pleasure and a favorite
topic of conversation naturally 's the
city itself. A resident who could
hear some of tbe remarks made would
indeed he surprised at the information he would get about his home
city, and still more so at. the impressions that huve been made on the visitor during his stay. Below are given
li few of the conversations that were
participated in by a Minor representative.
At the Phair a couple of western
mining men were talking to a recent
arrival from Manitoba, who was out
looking over some investments he had
made, lie was asked what he thought
of Nelson, and the questioner was
rather surprised to hear that his impressions were unfavorable for rather
peculiar reasons. He said, "1 don't
tnink Nelson is worth shacks. There
ire fine buildings, streets, and all
that kind of thing here, but there
isn't a bit of farming country in the
vicinity to keep it up. Outside the
town there doesn't Beem to be anything but scenery and mines. Now,
the only town I have seen around here
that looks as if it would be permanent
is Salmo. Thc soil there is fine, and
there should be some good farms.
Mines are all very well, but in the
nature of things they cannot last be-
y md a certain time, as always taking
out of a thing that won't grow must
come to an end."
It was pointed out to him by the
others that probably by the time any
one of the leading mines was exhausted at least twenty equally good ones
would have been discovered to replace it. He did not agree with this,
however, but stuck to his original
opinion.
At the Hume another Manitoban
was talking in a somewhat similar
Btrain. He remarked. "Yes, you
have great mines here and the growth
of the towns and development of thc
country here is truly remarkable, but
I can't stand the mountains At home
if I want to go to a place ten or
twenty miles away, 1 hitch up my
horse and take a straight line for it.
Rere, if you want to reach a place
that is twenty miles away,unless it is
available by railway or steamer, you
have to hire packers, guides, etc., and
probably need to travel a hundred
miles to work around to your desti
nation."
"That's true enough," answered a
resident cf Nelson, "but in Manitoba
what is the use of driving twenty
miles to another place on the prairie.
The whole country is so exactly alike
that you might just as well stay
where you are for .any difference. In
British Columbia each place has its
individuality! in Manitoba they are all
prairie  alike."
A gentleman fiom Montieal, who
had been at the Coast for a few
weeks, and reached Nelson Sunday
said. "I like Nelson very much. It
seems to be an exceptionally hand-
6ome_and enterprising town. 1 never
saw a place in which the average style
of the residences was so modern, and
the premises so well kept, but the
climate here seems terribly hot. Ia it
like this all summer?"
This was rather hard coming from
the lips of a citizen of Montreal, where
in one week some. 212 children under
five yeais of age hud died of heat.
When his attention was called to how
delightfully cool it became in the
evenings in Nelson he admitted that
there was some advantages in the
western climate,but said that one felt
the heat more than in the east. As
none of the Nelson people who were
preecnt.had experiencedj enough heat
this summer to he sure ou this, the
statemont was ullowetl to go unquestioned.
At one of the smaller hotels a dis
cussion was going on as to tbe present strike, and aa to what effect the
beat would have on thc rails. If the
statements that were made are correct the outlook for the company
would be had, as all were certain
that there would be plenty of rails
spreading very quiokly. The four-
tjen Italians who came over from
ltobson wilh Mr. McManamon, came
in for a liberal share of praise tor
throwing in their lot with the strik-
���e.s, and going up to thc Lardo to
work.
camps up most of the creeks things
are still very good. A number of people left Dawson for Nome, attracted
by discoveries of gold lately, b'.it not
so many as reported in the papers. In
Dawson now the great majority of the
buildings are frame, theie being but
a few of the old log affairs left.
There is one brick building used for
cold storage.
Mr. Waugh visited Nelson in 1892
and was very much surprised to see
what a handsome city had grown up
here since his first trip.
If'IBE AT GREENWOOD SMELTER.
An alarm of fire at about 8 o'clock
on Saturday evening drew a crowd to
the Hritsh Columbia Copper Company's smelter at (Ireenwood. where
it was found that the roof of the blast
furnace house was burning. It seems
that the timbers supporting the corrugated iron roof became ignited,most
likely from the heat of the big down-
take, which conveys the smoke from
the 'urnaje to the dust flue. With
numbers of men employed on |the
works and water supply at hand the
fire was quickly extinguished, the
damage being confined to a comparatively small section of the roof. The
furnace feeders stuck to their posts
even though tbe roof above them was
blazing. The works are well insured
so the small loss will fall on the isur-
ance companies.

on all the eases coming before it, from

Mr. Justice Irving, which was set aside
on appeal. ~. S. Taylor appeared for
the appellant and It. S. Lennie for
the respondent. The other was the
ease of Ularke vs. Colluin which was
an appeal from the court at Rossland,
us to an order made by Acting Judge
P. MuL. Forin, allowing a jury in
tlie case, which is an action brought
by Clarke for committment as to the
sale of the Arlington nilno. The appeal was allowed mi the groundB that
tlie plain tin* claimed a declaration,
and this made the action one of equity
and not of law, and as to which no
jury can be directed. K. P. Davis,
