NEW ITALIAN CONSUL.
Montreal, Aug. 9.���Court F. Mnzza,
the new   Italian Consul   General,   arrived hore thiB morning.   The first in-
I qniry he made of tho ac'ing consul
general was as to tho truth of a report
I circulated in Italy that many Italians in Canada wero starving to
death. Ho was assured that this report was untruo.
Washington, Aug. !).���Noithcr tho
state nor navy departments was able
to throw any light upon the president's despatch from Wellenistadt,
stating that the Venezuelan government announced that a new Colombia
invasion occurred yesterday near
Colon. An explanation suggested was
that the Colon mentioned was not
the town of that namo on tho isthmus,
but some obscure place along the
Venezuelan frontier.
No further official reports have
come regarding the situation on the
isthmus, and the officials appear content to rest for the present with what
has already been done in tho way of
preparing to protect American interests. They do not regard the situation as serious but desire to be ready
if it. should become serious. The
battleship Wisconsin had not reported
her departure to tho navy department
.luring tbe early part of tho day, but
it is expectod that she will be on her
way south very soon. As San Francisco is over 3,000 miles from Panama the battleship will probably
proceed further down the coast, probably to San Diego, California, and
there await developments on tbe
istnmus. The navy department lias
not yet decided whether Commander
Nathan Sargeant will take the Ma-
chias all the wav to the isthmus or be
succeeded by some other officer.
Washington, Aug. 9.���The situation
in Colombia and Venezuela continued
to occupy much of the attention of
officials here today and while it was
not felt that affairs had reached a
serious aspect, yet it was appreciated
that both the official and unofficial
advices indicated a condition of
aiTairs which might mean war between Columbia and Venezuela, complicated by revolutionary outbreaks
in both countries. During the day,
tbe state department received a rather
lengthy mail communication from
Consul General Cudger at Panama,
and though this was dated nearly a
month ago, it told of the landing of
a revolutionary oxopeditiou and expressed the cuirent belief held at Panama that this would bo followed by
other expeditious. The dopartment
also received a letter from Mr. J. Edward Simmons of New York, president of tho Pan-American Railroad,
confirming his communication of yes-
terduy relative to tho trouble on the
isthmus and stating that tho superintendent of th road had advised him as
to the depredations of an insurgent
band which did not numbor, however,
much over 50 men. The more serious
uspect of the matter was presented in
tho press despatches from Williamstad
stating that tho Colombians again had
invaded Veneznola. There was an
official confirmation as to this and if
it should prove true, there seems little
chance of avoiding an open conllict
between those two countries as suoh
an invasion of Colombia would be in
itself an act of war.  ,
Paris, Aug. 9.���The Echo de Paris
today prints a long interview with tho
French ambassador to the United
States.M. Jules Cambon,during which
he says on the subject of the great
steel strike, that the workmen in
Amorica are not hostile to tho mon-
ied aristocracy, and ho believes that
with intelligence and good luck, her
may also become a Carnegio. So instead of being jealous, he says that
Carnegie played his game fairly. M.
Cambon is also quoted as saying:
"Europeans havo no idea how hard
Americans, both rich and poor, work.
The F'rench people are not aware how
many i'rench there are in America,
especially the descendants of French
people. A large part of the United
StateB was settled by the French, and
if their descendants have not retained
thut language they still love La Belle
France.
"The Americans speak English but
thoy are not English. Thc whole
efforts of tbo Americans have boen to
wold into a single metal the French,
English and Germans who eotnpr sed
the nation. Tho French language is
popular. If the educated young wo-
raon of France who aro vainly seeking
employment in schools would go to
Amorica, they could easily gain a
good living there as tenohois. Tho
Americans nerhaps, are inclined to reproach tho F'ronch with remembering
too well what they did for America.
Still the cultured classes know wjiat
America owes to France."
Describing tho country M. Cambon
says: "Wnen one returns to Europe,
after living with the Americans every
thing hore looks small. America is so
colossal and so, young that alio bas
many other surprises in store for the
European."
AERONAUT TO TRY AGAIN.
Paris, Aug. 9.���M. Santos Dumot,
auding that the envelope of his balloon has sustained so much damage
that it is inadvisable to see.- it together, has ordered a new one, work on
which has already commenced. It
will have about the same volume as
the on which burst yesterday, but instead of being .ylinderioal in form, it
will be ellipsodal. M. Chambre, who
is making it, constructed the balloon
for the Andre polar expedition, and
promisesthat tho new envelope will
bo ready by September 1st.
KITCHENER IS ALL RIGHT
London, Aug. 9.���The war office haB
received no advices giving color to the
rumor circulated by a news agency in
the United States, that Lord Kitchener has been wounded in a skirmish
with tbe Boors. The rumor iB officially discredited. Lord Kitchener's
customary despatches reached the war
oflice this afternoon und contained no
reference to any accident   to him.

Major flargreaves of the Salvation
Army arrived from Spokane last evoning bringing with him the plans of
the handsome new barracks which the
anny intend to erect at once on Victoria street, in front of the old barracks. The building will have a frontage of 58 feet and bo 47 feet deep. On
tho ground floor will be two halls,
one large and one small. The large
hall will bo at the rear���3(1x47, and
with seating accommodations for 350
with a high arched roof.
Thc smaller hall will measure 21x35
foot, and over It will bo the officers,
quarters consisting of five living and
bedrooms with kitchen, bath room,
storeroom, etc. There will also be a
largo basement containing fuel storerooms, and beating apparatus. The
building itself is to be a brick and
stone face, and the plans show that
lot will present a very handsome and
attractive appearance. It will be
the first building to be erected by the
array in the west after the model
whick was decided on by the headquarters stall as style which combined convenience and economy to the
best advantage In the east there
have been two similar buildings
erected, one in Ottawa and the other
in a wustom Ontario city.
The entrance to both halls will be
from Victoria streot. Tho building
throughout will bo heated by hot air
and lighted by electricity. Tbe old
building will be left whore it is for
some time at least, arid will probably
be utilized later for some form of
army work.
The plans for tho building were
drawn up by W. R. Meade of Toronto, the Salvation Army architect.
Tbe contract for tbe building has not
yet been let but tenders are being
advertised for,and a deal will probably he closed within a few days, when
construction will immediately commence.
Major Hargreaves leaves this morning for the coast, en route to Port
Simpson, where ho is going to arrange
affairs in connection with tho army's
Indian mission there.
Tho Salvation Army band, twelve
members, under the leadership of
iiandniaster F'rost, is going to Spo-
kare next month to take part in the
special services that will be held by
the army while the Industrial Fair
is in progress. An ice cream social
will be held next Wednesday even-
ing, in aid of the band. One of the
features of tbe concert which will be
given during the evening will be the
selections rendered by the Zoboe band,
the instruments for which bave just
arrived from New York.
Tho new building when completed
will be a considerable addition to the
town, as it will coropar- favorably
with the other church buildings in
dimensions and appearance.

REVIEW OF CONDITIONS.
Tho mining and industrial Condi-
tion of the Kootenays is much brighter than some think It Ib; indeed, a
look over the field reveals that some
of tho camps aro more than usually active and that the season's work when
finished will shew that considerable
progress has been made.
In Easl Kootenuy the Crow's NcBt
Coal company is taking out 2,1)00 tons
of coal a day ahout half of which is
being made into coke. Nine hundred
men are employed in the mines and
in attending tho coke ovens. Three
now compressor plants have been or
derod to tho end that the output of
coal may he doubled, and masons are
busy constructing additional coke
ovens. Besides this,the construction of
the Crow's Nest Southern has been
commenced from what is to be its
southern terminus,and matters in that
section havo a rosy outlook. The lock
mines of East Kootenay are in fair
condition. The North Star continues
to ship, while the St. Eugenes has
ceased to market its output until a
new contract for tbe ore, now being
negotiated with reduction works in
Europe,has heen signed. In the mean
���bile the development of the mine is
being proceeded with, 190 men being
employed in the work.
Five hundred men are at work on
tbo road from tho head of Kootenay
lako whieh is to open up the northern
portion of the Ainsworth division antl
run through the middle sections
of the Trout Lake and Lardoau divisions. In anticipation of the advent
of the railway the ownors of properties
along tho route are developing them
and some will be able to Bhip as suon
as the moans are provided, large in
vestments are being made, and this
makes this portion of tho country tho
theater of considerable activity.
The mines of tho Nelson division
headed by tho Ymir, are doing well
and tho Hall Minos smelter continues
to bo energetically operated with
ores taken largely from the Silver King. Besides there is considerable development work in progress
on valuable propertios. The city of
Nelson  is active and lively.
In the Slocan tho prospects are
brightouing. Ono of the encouraging
incidents in this division is the resumption of dividends by the Rambler
Cariboo, which is accompanied by the
promiso that other dividends will follow at thu rato of ono cent per share
every two months. Tho Slocan Drill
published at Slocan City has tho following to nay of the situation in that
particular camp: "The camp is cm
ploying 325 mon and has a daily pay
roll of 81,000. With supplies added
tho monthly disbursement- total 850,-
000. Yet, why are things so quiet in
the Git;? Can it bo the citizens are
allowing their opportunities to escapo
them? There is food for reflection in
the figures given and tho trade they be
token is worth striving for, Slocau
is whero the major portion of that
money Bhoold be spent. Encourage
miner and operator alike to contre his
interests hero, encourage him to o.v
pend his money here and induce bin
to muko this place his homo. Improve
tho opportunities plaoed within your
grasp."
From the Boundary comes tioings of
comfort and joy. The Granby Consol
idatod iH operating its three mines in
tho l'hoenix camp, to the full limit of
tho capacity of its smelter, James
Broen is looking after the Brooklyn,
Stemwinder and Idaho, at l'hoenix,
and purposes erecting a smelter in
which to reduce the ore from these
mines. A. J. McMillan has just
floated the Snowshoe Gold and Coppi-r
Mines, Limited, in London with a
capital stock of ��250,000 for tho purpose of operating the Snowshoe group,

measures on ono of the forks of the
Kettle river. Besides oil wells aro
being sunk and should petroleum be
found there would be an almost unprecedented boom in thut section. The
Clreat Northern is extending a branch
line from Marcus into the Boundary
and this will give Iho residents the
benefit of a competing line. The
Boundary may. therefore, be set down
as being good for a long period ot considerable activity with its accorapani
ment of prosperity.
In tho Trail creek division the
strike has for the time being made the
Rossland oamp dull, but it has not
Btoppeii all operations. Tlie Iron Mask
and the I X. L. and some other
smaller properties are being operated
in the Rossland camp. On tho west
slope of Sophio Mountain 1110 men are
at work on the Velvet and it is being
developed into one of the most valuable
mines in the division. The Douglass-
Hunter, located near tho Velvet, has
driven a drift tunnel H00 'Bet along
thc ore body and the ledge was crosscut a few days since and found to be
40 feet wide, consisting principally of
concentrating ore. In the northern
portion of the Trail creek division thi-
Cascade and Rossland Bonanza, which
have been under development lor
some time, are now pronounoed by exerts to bo valuable mines. Besides
there art a dozen other pioperties in
tliitvieinUy which are being developed
and promise to make a camp second
only to Rossland. The smelter at Trail
continues to the operated on ores
brought in from the several camps outside of Rossland.
From tho foregoing it will bo realized that notwithstanding the fact
that tho mines of the Rossland-Great
Western and of the War Eagle and
Centre Star companies have ceased
operations there Ib still considerable
life in Trail creek division as well as
in the other portions of the Kootenays. In time the strike at Rosslaud
will havo come to an end and that
camp will onco more bo active and
prosperous. In the meanwhile the
other portions of the mining sections
are being pushed rapidly to tho front
and the Kootenays and Yale are after
all in what might bo called a prosperous condition.
The promising condition of affairs
reveals that Rosslanii is not tho only
mining camp in tbe province.
AN IMAGINARY DANCER.
The Kamloops Sentinel a fleets to believe Unit Ihe life of the future King,
thc Duko of Cornwall and York, will
be endangered **'liile crossing the
continent on the Canadian Faol&c
Hallway fur the reason lhat so many
of the trackmen employed are Italians,
In support of tho theory it says that
it will bo remembered that in the investigation following upon thc assassination of King Humbert of Italy it
was disclosed that the plot originated
in Paterson, N. .1,, among a colony of
Italian anarchists, and Bres.hi, the
man selected for Ihe crime.crossed over
to Italy from the United States for
that express purpose. ��inee the trackmen's strike it is well known that Iho
Canadian I'aeific Railway Company
has Imported Italian laborer from all
parts of the United States, and thnt
hundreds of these Italians.gathered in
the hot beds of anarchy in the United
Stales, are now employed aa section.
men all over the C. I'. R. system, but
more particularly on the Western and
Pacific divisions. Inside of six weeks
(Ireat Britain's futtnc king will be
crossing the continent on the Canadian l'aeitie railway. Is it safe for Canada's national highway, asks tlie Sentinel, lo bu entirely at Ihe mercy of
aliens, among whom it is quite possible there may bo many anarchists of
the Paterson, . N. .1., type on an occasion .if this kind'.' Forewarned is
forearmed.    The Canadian authorities
must tako no chances with tho life  of
Britain's future king.
While the solicitudo displayed for
the heir-anparent by tbe Sentinel is
commendable wo think that tho danger pointed out is somewhat imaginary. The anarchist is largely tho product of the slums and the wine shops,
and it is ooldoui that ho ventures out of
tho former and during his waking
hours spends moBt of his time iu the
latter. As far as work like that which
he would have to perform as a section
hand is concerned he has but little appetite for it,as bo considers it beneath
his dignity as a reconstructor of
society to do it. The class of
Italians working along the line of the
Canadian Pacific Railway is not made
up of anarchists, hut is of a different
typo. Anarchists only work when
compelled to and usually follow the
lighter occupations. Repairing tracks
is too manly an ocoupation for them
to enaggo in. Besides this the usual
precautions will be taken and even if
there wore a .stray anarchist among
the Italian trackmen ho would not he
given an opportunity of getting near
enough to tho heir-apparent to inflict
any damage.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
The title of tho King, contained in
a bill which tho Marquis of Salisbury
has introduced in the Houso of Lords,
reads: "Edward the Seventh, by
the Grace of God, of Great llritain and
Ireland, and of the liritisli Dominions
beyond the Seas, King and Defender
of the Faith, Emperor of India."
This title sounds good to Tho  Miner.
Carnegie continues to present cities
with libraries and Montreal is the latest to bo favored by him. lie has
offered to give that city SI SO, 000 .for
establishing a public library on condition tbat the city maintains it
properly, expending $15,(100 por year for
that purpose. Nelson needs a library
and an application for ono should be
mado to Camogio before he has given
all of his vast fortune away.
Here is a wail from the Seattle Post
Intelligencer: "Wo are dependent up-
on the Canadian canals for an outlet
for vessels from the gieat lakes
to the ocean, and we are presently to
be dependent upon Canadian telegraphs for communication botween
this country and our Alaskan territory. For a nation whose resources
are unlimited and whose pride ia great
we are singularly indifferent to this
commercial servitude. Not another
session of congress should pass without provision for direct telegraph communication, by land wires and. ocean
cables where necessary between Seattle and all the principal sottloments
in Alaska."

Before her numiicrs printed small
Fell down when anyone would call.
Tho Judge look down the office   'fone
And made to Maud his wishes known.
Suid he" we'll ask you just once more
For four eleven forty-four."
Said Maud, as mild ns summer seas,
"What   number    did   yon   ask    for,
please."
Said he "I told you twice   before
It's four eleven forty-fonr."
Said Maud, and you   could   hear  her
smile,
''.lust hold tho 'fone   a little while."
A   weary intervnl ensued
Tho long wires hummed an interlude
And broken bits of talk  came o'er
The 'fone and made the waiter sore.
A firm grip on tho line he took
And rang it till the building shook.
Till   Mnuilie's   voice   he  heard  once
more
"What number are you waiting forV"
The Judge responded   with a roar
"Its four eleven forty four."
Severely Maud made answer then
''That line is busy, call again."
The Judge had ^business late that day
And so he merely walked away.
Hut as he walked he shook his head
And this is what lie simply said u
"-.'The saddest words of tongue or pen,
The line is busy, call again."

II. A. Prosser and informed him that
the C. P. R. had agreed to grant the
demands made upon thorn by the striking truckmon.and the strike was at an
end. He also asked him to procure
some men for him at once. Mr. Prosser immediately put out a board announcing this, but a little later thinking it over deoided to make some.inquiries. No one seemed to know anything of the matter so the notico was
withdrawn. A Miner reporter called
on T. McManamon, secretary of the
strikers, and asked him if any word
had been received from Montreal. He
stated that everything was practically
in tne same condition as formerly anil
that the strikers were confident of
wiuning, but so far no concessions
had been granted by the management
of the C. P. K, The reporter then
interviewed Mr. Gutolins of the C. P.
R. staff, who said that the company
considered the strike was ended, and
the men beaten. They were paying
SI.75 a day to the men who were
working, aB they wero considered as
extra gangs.

if the results are as satisfactory as
anticipated will probably return to
work tbe second vein during thc winter. The property is situated within
three miles of an excellent wagon
road built from Vernon to the Mona-
shic mine. On a claim adjoining
the South American, Messrs. Williams
and Costly have uncovered a live foot
ledgo of arsenical iroD, which assays
855 per ton, and on which tbey are
prosecuting active and extensive development.
Last year's shipments have been
passed and a new record established
for tbo local division, affording a
striking demonstration of the re-
souiccs and great developments of the
dry ore belt, says the Slocan Drill.
The total for 1000 was 2,847 tons,
while those of 11101 to date amount to
2,870 tons belong a gain of 32 tons.
But the end is not yet and tlie outlook is favorable for a continuation of
heavy shipments. At the Arlington
two more teams have heen added to
the hauling force and exports havo
been raised to 80 tons weekly. Two
teams are hauling from the Enterprise, the shipments being 40 tons
per week instead of a month. For the
week Hi tonB were shipped, 80 tons
from the Arlington, 20 from the Enterprise, and six from the Hampton.
A second car is now ready to go out
from the Enterprise, and oie is coming in from the Black Prince, which
will make a 30 ton shipment. The
ore from the Hampton was divided between the Nelson and Trail smelters
and is the lirst sent out by the mine
this year. It is very high grade and
is expected to equal last year's returns of 690 ounces per ton.
Last year the exports from this division amdunt.ed to 2.847 tons, made
up from 10 properties. Following is
a list of the shipments this year to
date:
Arlington, week SO, total 2,320; Enterprise, week 20, total 320; Two
Friends, 40; Black Prince, 100;
Bondholder, 28; Chapleau. 15; Speculator, 1(1; Phoenix, 2,'i; V. ,t M��� 20;
