RUMORS AFLOAT
IN ROSSLAND
Whitaker Wright's Fall Caus
Ing Much Speculation In
the Camp.
Nothing Definite Known���A\r.
Macdonald   Makes
Statements.
ISPBCIAL TO THE MlNKR.)
Kossland. li. 0., Aug. 24.- The situation in connection with the strike
is practically unchanged. Striking
miners and the element opposed to
Bernard Macdonald take considerable
satisfaction out of the report of Whitaker Wright's lesignation as president
of the Le Roi, but tlio majoiity of
thus- in touch with affairs arc disposed to accept Macdonald' assurances
tilttt this will not affect the director's
attitude toward the Miners' Union,
and that their policy delineated soon
after the trouble commenced will be
adhered to. As far as the striae is
concerned the general feeling is that
the company is out to estabish a
policy of brooking no interference
with the conduct of the mine by the
unions and that tbis contest will he
fought out regardless of possible
changes ui tbe personnel of the management. It is felt thnt to recede
from the position at tiiis stage Of thc
game would be opposed to good policy
and would intrench unionism so
strongly that the agitator element
would be in the saddle for good.
The   strike is   devoid of features of
interest.       The   number   of   genuine
miners in tbe camp  is variously   estimated   at   from    50   up   to   100,    th.'
balance having (,-ono   out of   the   oity
to uork in other camps   pending  the
resumption of work.    There is no in-
| dication   that   tbe   mines   are   to   be
started in the   near   future.      Reports
i of trouble at Northport  are discredit-
, ed.     Information   from   disinterested
iparties  is that tho   furnaces   are tun-
"ning smoothly and that   tho   management   ia   not   blowing in   additional
furnaces, in ouloi to   conserve ore reserves now   on tbe ground.    Men   are
being turned away   from the smelter.
Rossland strikers  are   looking   for-
waid to a change in the situation after
the directors'   meeting   on   the   2!>th
inst., but the prediction is made that
no action then taken   will   affect   thc
local   managers   materially.    Accepting this as correct   tne   next   step   of
importance will be tho resumption of
the mines.
A representative of thc Rossland
.Miner interviewed Mr. Bernard Macdonald, manager of the Le Roi Mining Company, on Friday, about the
reports current on the street:
1. That Mr. Whitaker Wright bad
resigned the chairmanship of tbe Le
Hoi directorate in London.
:.'. That ex-Governor Mackintosh
would be resident director of the
company.
���I. That the new directorate wonld
he opposed lo the strike policy of the
old directorate,and would bo prepared
to make certain concessions to the
ilcninnds of the Miners' Union after
the meeting on the 20th inst.
4, Thut thc smoltcr was frozen up,
etc., etc.
Replying to these reports in the
order given, Mr, Macdonald said :
''I. That Mr. Whitaker Wright has
I'lihigncd the chairmanship of the Le
Roi directorate in London is probably
'rue, as he has had that step in contemplation for some time.
"!.'. There is not the remotest probability that ex-Governor Mackintosh
will be called upon to occupy the
position of resident director, or any
uthei position with the Lo Roi company at this place or elsewhere, no
matter what hoard of diccctors may bo
i-hosen.
''8, I am informed from reliable
Bouroes that tho strike polioy unanimously adopted by the directors and
cublud to me some timo ago is to be
maintained.
"I. In reference to the reported
freczc-u-js at the smelter, Mr. Macdonald said that such reports are
really too silly to answer, since ihe
furnaces never ran more smoothly Hiul
no difficulty whatever Is experienced
in getting all the men at present re-
qnireil, In fact, a number of men
seeking woik are being turned away
eery day.
"With regard   to   the   rumor   that
No. 2 furnace has been closed    perma-j
nently on acoount of gas explosions, l|
, would   state   that   this   furnace   has!
i never dune better work than it is now
doing. The returns for yesterday's
operation show tbat the regular
amount ot ore has been smelted by It.
"ln refeience to tbe other rumor
alleged to have come from Northport,
that there is no gold in tho matte, 1
would state that the ear of matte
shipped from the smelter the day this
report was circulated, i. e., August.
2tst, was the highest in gold value of
any matte ever shipped from the
smelter.
"So far as the smelter is concerned,
the strike is over, as far as relates to
practical effect."
The     Spokesman-Review     has  the
following on the situati,-:n :
Whitaker Wright has resigned the
managing directorship of the Le Boi
company. The resignation was under
pressure. Mr. Wright made a desperate effort to retain his post as head of
the great mining coinpany, and he
hoped to stave off the opnosition at
least until the annual meeting in
December.
The opposition, however,became too
strong, it was evident that be. would
be forced out at the special meeting of
the company which will be held next
Thursday in London. Rather than to
submit to the humiliation ol a removal, be resigned on Thurdsay.
News of his action reached hero yes*
lorday by cable.
Tho downfall of Mr. Wright is di*
rectly due to the effoits of Henry
Bratnober, the famous San Francisco
mining man, who, perhaps, ranks
higher tlinn anv other American in
tho conlidence of London mining
financiers. Mr. liratnober is himself
a shareholder in the Le Roi, and he
is closely allied with a number of
other shareholders. He came to Spokane about two weeks ago to examine
the situation, and since then has been
constantly In communication with his
London associates. As a result of
.Mr. Bratnober's efforts, Wright decided that his only course was to
resign.
The withdrawal of Wright puts an
entirely new phaso on the Le Roi
situation. Thc policy of antagonism
tc the labor unions which has been a
feature of the Lo Roi company's
attitude during the past three months,
with the resulting strikes at North-
port and Rossland, was carried on
with Wright's approval. He decided
to close down tho mines rather than
to accede to the demands made by the
unions.
it is problematical what the new
management of tho company will do
with regard to the labor troubles.
Well informed mining mon believe
that the withdrawal of Wright paves
the way to some sort of a settlement
which will result in the rcoponing of
the Le Roi. The English shareholders
havo been keenly anxious to get somo
dividends from the mine.

(SPECIALS TO THE MINKIl.)
Grand Forks. 11. C, Aug. 24,���The
Granby smelter during the week ending today treated 4,251 tons of ore.
The total treated to date is 205,000
tons.
J. F. Whitney, a Philadelphia
glass manufacturer, who is largely interested in the City of Paris and
Granby group of mines, owned by the
Miner-Graves Syndicate, is here. lie
went through the Knob Hill and Old
Ironsides at l'hoenix and expressed
himself as astounded at the millions
ot toes of ore in sight. lie also inspected the smelter at Grand Forks.
Chas. Ferguson ... Co., ot Spoakne,
have been av a ded thc contract for
the construction of the entire line of
the Republic and Grand Forks railway
with the exception of about four miles
already graded. Thc load connecting
this city with the American mining
camp will be about 35 miles long and
according to the contraot must be completed before New Years U>1>2. Mr.
Ferguson has established headquarters
here and says ho will have three
thousand mon at work within a fortnight. A portion of his outfit has
arrived but fourteen additional ear-
loads arc expected tomorrow or Monday. Construction camps bave
already been established between
here and the boundary line, four and
a half miles distant and camps three
miles apart will be located next week
at all the intermediate points south
as far as Republic. Tracy Wbuelaud,
general manager of the Republic and
Grand Forks road, confirmed the�� re-
Dort of the award of tho oontract to
Ferguson & Co. He also stated, that a
traffic arrangement with the Canadian Pacific railway has been effected
The rails and rolling stock havo already been purchased. The principal
owners of tho charter are Hon. J. R.
Stratton, Provincial Secretary of
Ontario, F. M. Holland and T. P.
Coffee, all of Toronto. Manager Holland estimates that Republic with
railway facilities will produce a daily
tonnage of six hundred tons, all of
which will be treated at thc Grand
Forks smelter, and this tonnage he
believes will he more than doubled
within sixteen months. The Great
Northern load is also building a line
between GranM Forks anci Republic
and there is sure to be a lively race
between the two roads to determine
which shall to completed  first.
Victoria,B. C.Aug. 24.���Big crowds
of people met the Charmer last night
when tho bodies of Dr. Duncan, Capt.
Foote, Mrs. Ross and child, all victims of the Islander wreck, were
brought home. Captain Foote and
Mrs. Ross will bo buried tomorrow,
Dr. Duncan's funeral is delayed until
the arrival of a brother.
Four bodies were bruised about the
head, and this, with the fact that all
of them were picked up very shortly
after the accident, has led to the
theory advanced hy medical men that
they were killed by un explosion or by
being struck with Hying debris.
Otherwise they say tbe lungB would
have filled with water and the bodies
snnk. This theory is strengthened by
the fact that Dr. Duncan was still
bleeding from the temple when picked
up.
Captain Goss of the Hating says he
is satisfied the boilers did not explode
tut the report was cue to tbe out-rush
of air. He says the shore ia strewed
for 20 miles with wreckage, including
the ship's wheel.
James McKay and wife, parents of
Mrs. Ross' neice, and young Hell,
son of one of tbe victims, camo out to
Juneau where they will wait and see
if the sea gives up their dead.
Governor Ross dropped a remark-
last night which led to the belief tbat
he will resign but it is generally supposed he will reconsider such decision
after he recovers from the first effects
of his terrible blow. Mr. Rons, with
the Uev. Leslie Clay, an old friend,
went to the cemetery this morning
tn select a plot for tbe Interment of
i  the bodies.
Czar's Visit to Germany and
France Awakening Much
interest.
lierlin, Aug. 24.���While tbe papers
are Hooded with details of the Czar's
approaching visit to France, confirmation of the announcement that His
Majesty will also attend tbe German
naval manoeuvres, whioh was made
in Paris somo days ago, was for some
reason known only to official minds,
itept back from tbe German publio
until yesterday.
The statera-nt tbat the Czar will
visit Dantlz in private and that no
minister will be piesent. is quite
wrong;. Both Count Von liuelow
and Count Lamsdoif will accompany
their Imperial masters. Attempts
tburefore to divest the meeting of a
political character are vain. No
more important political transactions
will be concluded, but the more fact
that Emperor William wili have an
opportunity of exchanging personally
his views on pending questions, is
regarded as politically important. As
a high official said : "The Emperors
wiil meet as good friends from the
conviction that it is best thing for
both to be good friends, though attempts mav be made here and there
tu mar tbat friendship."
Tho meeting will take place on
board tbe German Imperial yacht
Hoheiizollern. Tbe Czar's visit will
last only 48 hours.
At the same timo that the Czar will
be reviewing the French Ueet and
troops, the German Imperial manoeu-
vcrs to which Lord Roberts, the British commander-in-chief, has boen invited, will be iu progress in tbe
country southward of Dirschau on the
Vistula. The manoeuvers are of exceptional interest this year. Special
attention will be paid to the cyclist
divisions, pigeon post and balloon
company attached to each corps and
to the experiment with motor oars.
Emperor William will command one
side of the naval manoeuvers and will
continue thu naval and army manoeuvers until Sepember 15.
The larger part which Court Von
Waldersee i��. occupying in public
attention has brought out many kindly comments on the countess.
King Edward is automobiling
around Homburg in a car which looks
more like an armour-cladthan a carriage. It is a kind of char-a-bannies,
very large and gloomy and painted

while in the car aud gets privacy in
his open air excursions which would
not be obtainable otherwise.
j of exaggerating facts in order to have
an excuse to intervene and seize the
Isthmus of Panama and the canal.
The correspondent of the Associated
Press received from a well Informed
source that the French Government
has not yet considered the contingencies which may arise if thc United
States lnlerevnes, or has any exchange
of views with tlie European chancellories on tho subject taken place, or
even been suggested. So far as
France is concerned, she does not contemplate any step beyond that already
taken, of sending a warship to protect the lives and property of Frenchmen on the Isthmus. The Government
hns not received any news from its
representatives in Central America
concerning the troubles there until a
day or two ago. As they came by
mail they relate to events several
weeks old and fail to give a clear idea
of what is taking place, but it is curtain that there was nothing calculated
to cause alarm for tbe safety of Fren.ll
interests.
London, Aug. 21.���Former Senator
W. D. Washburn, of Minneapolis,
prior to sailing for home on the
steamer St. Louis today, said to a
lepresentativc of the Associated Press
that he had found considerable uneasiness among the bankers and manu*
facturers on the continent concerning
American competition.
"Tbey perceive, '��� he added, "that
we are just getting ready and in no
respect is it likely thoy can beat us
in the future. How long can Europe
stand to pay a balance of trade of six-
hundred and fifty million dollars a
year after all our securities aro sent
back? Some able continental obser-
��� ers to whom 1 put tho inquiry were
unable to answer.''
Commenting on the "fantastic idea
of a commercial bond of the European
nations against the United States,"
The Outlook says: "One might as
well try to hang a Venetian blind over
the sun as to try to exclude the influence of American industries from
the world. For one thing, Great
Hi itain would be uo party, to the
bond. For another, the power of
American reprisals would be terrible.

Figures of Germany's Trad3 For the
Past Year.
Washington, Aug. 24.���The State
Department has received a report from
Consul General Mason at lierlin giving
the official statistics just issued of
Germany's trade in iron and steel and
their manufactures for the lirst half
of 1U00. It is shown that the imports
of machinery into Germany has drop-
pod from 81,007 tons uring thc first
half of 1000 to88,881 tons for sainn
period of this year, a loss of over 22
per ceut. As indicating the wide
range and variety of iron and steel
exports from the United States to
Germany it is set forth that from Jan-
uavy to July of this year, Germany
bought from tho United States in
round numbers 15,000,000 metric tons
of agricultural machinery; 0,300 tons
of pig iron, neary 2.0U0 tons of course
hardware, ; 1,500 tons heavy castings,
118 tons locomotives and locomobiles;
218 tons of electrical machinery;
nearly 1,000 tons of sewing maohines;
1,500 tons machine tools and 40 tons
of typewriters. The United States is
far in the lead as regards agricultural
machinery, sending more than three
fourths of Germany's supply during
tho first half of this yoar.
RUMORS OF PEACE.
Again Asserted That Steel Antagonists
Aro Conferri ng.
Pittsburg, Aug. 24.���Talk of peace
in the steel world in spite of the
denials that there i�� prospects of any
by the officials of the steel corporation
or the officials of tlie Amalgamated
Association President. SchutLr made
tho statement tonight that there was
nothing probable in this line, so fur
as he knew. He denied positively
that the conference with the four visitors on Friday, hnd any significance
and said that the situation was
unchanged. He willingly admitted
that he wonld at any time be glad to
discuss peace with the proper officials
or their authorized representatives
but��this was all. In spite of this
statement theie is a strong undercurrent of belief that there arc powerful
influences at work to bring the war
ring factions with tho idea of ending
the strke that is unsettling tile iiidns-
tiial prosperity of tin- coil ntry.
A SWELL CREW.
Victoria, II. 0. Aug. 24.���The
steamer Bristol which arrived heie on
her way to Ladysinith to load coal,
brought from San Francisco a party
of ship owners and retired captains
from Port Towsend who took the ship
John A. Briggs lu Sun Francisco from
that port because of the fact that thc
Sailors' Union refused to ship a crew
under fifty dollars fur the trip. Capt.
lllaok made up a crew ot ship owners
and others, many very wealthy, who
made the trip more for pleasure than
anything else.
CONSTITUTION
QUIT THE MCE
Fog Is too Dense for Her But
Not for the Old Columbia.
Betting Men Are Putting Up
Big Money  on  thc
Green.
Oyster May, Aug 24,���The Columbia
won the trial race here today. The
Constitution withdrew about :i
o'clock because of thick weather.
The Columbia went on ami finished the
course at IDS::;.,. Her elapsed timo
was three hours, 33 minutes and :;r,
seconds.
New Vork, Aug. 24.���Sir Thomas
Lipton, when seen by fl representative
of thc Associated Press after the race
said ;
"The weather was bad for racing
and I think thc Constitution ,did the
right tiling in stopping when she
did. In that thick weather there was
no use taking chances of an accident, either of collision or of running
aground. Our yachts un both sides of
the water huve bud experience enough
of that kind.'' Kir Thomas refrained
from saying anythiug regarding the
merits of either Columbia or Constitution. On board the Erin ns guests of
tht! Shamrock's owner were Lieut.*
Col. Burbank and his daughters and
several other officers. Captain Sycamore and Navigator Hamilton also
saw the race from tbo Erin. Tho
former laughingly said to the newspaper man ; "You brought us out hero
to give us a soaking. What will you
do with us if we tako tlie cup'.1''
William Butler Duncan, Constitution's manager, when asked why he
quit, said; " We had to when the
weather got thick, and I suoposed
Columbia had also quit. I shall tnko
Constitution cast tonight, if the
weather clears aud there will be no
more races until tlio trial races."
New York, Aug. 24.���Professional
betting men are beginning to show a
keen interest in the coming International yacht race and some men who
aro well known in the sporting
world are inclined to give tho long
end to the Shamrook. One of the
most prominent of these sporting
men is quoted as saying that the men
who make bets arc disgusted with the
trials of the American boats and that
those with the bank rolls do not like
thc performance of the Constitution.
The opinion is that, even money on
the race will piovail. Another high
authority of this class says thnt ho
has found feeling and sentiment in
favor of the Shamrock and he cites an
instauce of a bet by a Chicago man of
S100 to ,250 that Sir Thomas would
win. Reports received from Detroit
tell of a bet of 8..00 tc .100 made by a
Toronto man with a United States
army officer that tin- Shamrock would
be the victor. Given money bets are
reported from Indianapolis and word
conies from St. Louis that the prevailing odds there are four to live tn favor
of tho American boat. No heavy betting is reported from any place.
London. Aug. 21.���It is too early
for London to enthuse much over the
America cup race but them is a glowing belief that Sir Thomas Liptous'
chances are good. A commissioner
representing a number of sporting
clubs has sailed for New York carrying ��B0.OOO of Shamrock money

THE FALL OF WRIGHT.
"Coming evonts cast their shadows
before," and it lias been apparent, for
some time pant that Mr. Whitaker
Wright and associates were to loie
control of the group of Rossland properties including the Le Roi. Le Roi
No 2, Rossland-Great Western and
Kootenay mines. In yesterday's issue
of The Minor appealed a dispatch
from London which annoucnd that Mr.
Wright had tendered his rcsigsatloii
as managing director of the Lo Roi
company and that it was altogether
probable that a clean sweep of the
entire management would bo made, as
proxies antagonistic to tlio present
management were being received iu
large numbers. The change would bo
made, it was anticipated, at the extraordinary general meeting to be held
on Thursday next. Mr. Bernard Mae*
don aid, tbe manager of the Le Roi
and the other properties of the Rossland Great Western gioup and Mr.
Wright's confidential agent in Rossland, when shown the dispatch stated
that the report was likely true,as .Mr.
Wright had such a move in contemplation for some time past, It is probable, however, that Mr. Wright
resigned under pressure brought to
bear by the dissatisfied stockholders.
Tho Hritish Columbia Review of Saturday, August 10, which arrived iu
yesterday's mail from London, has the
following which would tend to show
that the resignation of Mr. Wright
was not nn entirely voluntary act on
his part, and that it was pieceded by
the resignation of some of his nominees in the different companies:
"The exposures which have been
made in connection with the liquidation of the 11. A. C. and the Standard
Exploration Companies have ecm-
menced to bear fruit. An action has
been commenced for the compulsory
winding up of the London and Globe
which will involve the public examination of Mr. Whitaker Wright, and
although the petition will not.be heard
until after the vajation, there is overy
reason to anticapate that thu Courts
will grant the application. The
boards of the Lake View and Ivanhoe
companies have been relieved of the
presence of Mr. Sinclair Maclcay,
who has also resigned his diiectorship
of the Trustees, Executors, and Securities Insurance Corporation. Mr.
Macleay has taken the only course
possible under tho circumstances and
as his directorship of the Lake View
alone brought him in-2,000 a year we
may assume that some pressure was
brought to bear. We have not yet
seen it announced that Mr. Macleay
has resigned his directorships of tlie
Le Roi No. 2. Rossland tlreat Western
and Kootenay Mines on the boards of
which be holds the position of chairman. Mr. A. li. Dealtry who may
be regarded as merely a nominee of
Mr. Whitaker Wright has resigned his
seat on the board of the Ivanhoe but
has not yet seen fit to resign liis directorships of tlio Lo Roi No. 2, Rossland Kootenay and Caledonia Copper
Coinpaies which if is but, tilting be
shuuld vacate without further delay.
A strong effort is being made lo bring
about the resignation of Mr.Whitaker
Wright from tlie board of the Le Roi
Co. and for this purpose a requisition
from a number of shareholders -.slicing
made to the hoattl to call nn extraordinary general meeting to bring
about his retirement. As a counterblast to this tlie secretary has sent mil
a notice to the shareholders -which we

out is not tho case as at the ordinary

be the turn of Mr. Whitakei Wright
to come up for io-eleet.lon it will not
be possible for the shareholders to

Tbe resignation of Mr. Wright and
the removal of his lntinence and that
of his friends from the Affairs of the
four groups of Rossland mines nnd of
thc smelter at Northport means that
another combination will oonduet tho
affairs of those companies; it means
that thu new management will have

Wright and his codjutors and hence
it is very probable that it will result
ln a change in the management of tho
mines at Rossland of the smelter at
Northport and in the cessation of the
strike at the minus and the smelter.
The ending of tbe strike is a consummation most devoutly to be wished by
thu residents of Rossland as well as by
all the people of the h'ooetnays aud it
is hoped that the new people in
control will reach an agrceme nt with
the strikers that will bo a sound and
enduring one to the end that there
may be no more labor troubles in the
Rossland cainp t" retard the prosperity and development of the mining
industiy.
Once the labor troubles are over
with the Le Roi and its allied prop-
eities it is very probable that the
differences which exist between the
War Eagle and tho Centre Star and its
ex-employees could ho adjusted in a
manner satisfactory to tbe disagreeing
parties.
Although Whitaker Wright has been
defeated by those with whom be has
been contending against on the stock
maiket for a long time, still it must
not bo lost sight of that he did a great
deal for tbe Rossland camp,and tbat it
was he and his friends wbo formed
the British America!'. Corporation at
the instance of lion. C. H. Mackintosh. As a result of this the company
so formed spent in the acquisition of
mining properties in the Rossland
camp ttnd the smelter at Northport in
tho neighborhood of $5,000,000. Besides this large sums wore put out
in dovclopment work and tbe installation of plants, which amounted to
at least half tbe sum used in the
acquisition of the properties. Under
the Wright regime the mines have
been scientifically developed and equipped, are now in tirst class condition
and ready to produce largo quantities
of oro. The mines intrinsically aro
worth at least threo times ns much as
when tbey passed into the hands of
the British American Corporation.
Tne fact tbat Mr. Wright has gotten
himself into Queer Street is not duo to
any lack of merit of the mines, but
rather to tho reverses which bo
met on tho stock exchange and in his
reckless stock manipulations, Though
Mr. Wright was a skillful master of
fence lie met those in the stock arena
who were too adroit for him and thoy
succeeded in defeating him on more
than one occasion. Tho last dofeat was
a veritable Waterloo. The forthcoming
new management of the Le Hoi and
the other mines of the same group
will find them in splendid condition
and if they arc conducted along legitimate lii.es and in tho interest of tho
StOokholderB, they are certain to yield
good dividends. This is not saying
that this has not beeu the case with
the local management of the mines
under consideration up to date, as it
has been of the best possible character. 11 has taken considerable time
to placo them iii thu present condition but. the work has been along
scientific lines by men who understand
their business. The main injury that
has been inflicted on the mines and on
the reputation of mining in British
Colombia lias been through tho devious
stock manipulation in the London
market through which the public has
lost a great deal ot money and by
which the" have lost confidence in
this province as a desirable one for Investment. Wlien the affairs of the
several companies are placed on a
profitable basis and they begin to
yield dividends it. will materially aid
in restoring the temporary loss of non-
fldencc and British Columbia will then
stand in a better light in London than
is the case at present.
KITCHENER IRON DEPOSITS.
The fact that tho iion deposits near
Kitchener are to be developed, and
if fonud cjual   in   quantity   to  what
they are in quality, iron and steel
works are to be erected and maintained is attracting considerable attention.
The Victoria Colonist in a recent
notice of the projeot says: "It is said
that an extensive iron plant is to be
established at Kitchener, in this
province, where a Bne deposit of
hematite iron, running as high as 70
per cent , is being opened up. Mr.
W. M. Klakemore, representing Montreal capital, Is at the head of the
venture, and it ia alleged that operations will be carried on very extensively. Kootenav is to be congratulated upon this new source of
prosperity."
The Cranbrook Ileiald has  the   following to say of tbe projeot:
"Kitchener   is a   name to  oonjure
with.     The transfer of tbe iron property in that district   from C.   P.   Hill
and others to a  strong Montreal   syndicate last   week,   and   the   progress
made in satisfactory   development  of
copper and galena properties has mar
ked Kitchener and   surrounding territory as a section that may revolution
ize the industrial conditions   in Brit
ish Columbia, and   become   a  potent
faetor in the iron and   steel   trade  of
the   world.    When nature placed such
a magnificent coking coal   at  Fernie,
it would surely be a practical demon-
station of the fitness of things if there
should  be developed   at    Kitchenei
only 100 miles away,   one of the rich
est   and   best   iron deposits    on   the
continent.''
ORIENTAL LAUOR IN B. C.
The investigations of the royal com
mission appointed to look into the
question of Chinese and Japanese im
migration in British Columbia has
brought out some interesting facts
concerning these people and reveals
how much of a figure they cut in the
labor field. At Nanaimo and Comox
a nnmber of Chinese are employed in
the coal mines. At Comox the Orientals are in excess of the whites em
ployed in tho mining of coal. Ten
marlifneturing concerns, including
sawmills atChemainus.b rick yards at
Victoria and the Wellington coal
mines, near Nanaimo, employ sicii
white men, 8U0 Chinese and 437
Japanese. Of the 900 whites about
000 are skilled workmen, leaving only
OU white unsiiilled laborers, as com
pared with 1,306 Orientals. There
are 40 salmon canneries which employ
on an average :liio men each year, or a
total of 8,000.
Each cannery has an average of 10
whites, who are chiefly skilled work
men, or 400 in all, making 7,000
Oiientals against 400 whites. Then-
are about s, uud fishermen engaged in
catching lish during tbe season of
which 4,000 aie Japanese. The evidence went tu show that out of a probable population of 14,000 Chinese and
���1,(1011 Japanese only about 300 ure
married.

A CORRECT CONCEPTION OF GOD.
(John Burtt Morgan.)
It has become of late quite popular
in some quarters to belittle the value
of right ideas and correct thinking in
eonnection with the fundamentals of
religion. Wilh an air of oroadmind-
citness men tell us tbat it matters but
little what a man believes so long as
his heart is in the right place, atd he
is seekin? to do the best he can. But
oan a man's beait be in the right
place and can he do his best while bisi
fu ith is at variance with fact? And
why should his religious nature be
thought to he under laws so different
from those which govern his other activities'.' Accurate knowledge and
ooneot peasunlng are overywheie the
reoognized conditions of success. Why
then should the righteousdiaoharge of
his highest duties be put upon another
bnsis?
If mere is a general and necessary
relationship between thought and
notion, between belief and behavior
I etweeii conviction and character, or
in Borlptute parlance if as a man
"t.hinketli in his heart so is he," how
important is it that bis highest
thought should bo of the putest and
truest type. And what are the highest thoughts of which he is cBpable'.'
Admittedly those which lead him to a
contemplation of the supreme Intelligence, tlio Creator, Sustainer and
Director of all things, whom in the
absence of a better name we designate
in simple Anglo-Saxon, God. It must
therefore be apparent to all that no
man can sustain right relations to the
moral government of the universe
without a correot conception of Him
who governs. Thus we understand
why Hod has made all Ilis works the
medium of His Belf-revelation to mankind, and why in order to reach and
save the race it was necessary to
patiently unfold Himself by piogres-
sive revelations until men were prepared to receive his fullest self-manifestation in Jesus of Nazareth. This
explains our Lord's words addressed
to the Father, "This is life eternal
that they might know Thee the only
true God antl Jesus Christ whom Thou
hast sent." In short the Highest good
possible is fellowship with the
thought and purpose of the Father of
all, aud this fellowship is only possible in its fullness and richness to
him who riffhtly apprehends God.
How earnest, therefore, should be
our effort to attain to that which
must ever be at the basis of all sound
thought aud lighteuus action, viz.���a
correct conception of Deity!

KEEP CHIMNEYS CLEAN
Where Soot Causes Fire Fines Will
Result.
At the police court yesterday morning before Police Magistrate Crease,
Hip Chong, a Chinaman whose place
of business is on Victoria street, oppo
site the city hall, was brought up
charged with a breach of the fire bylaw in having had tho chimney of his
wash house in such a sooty condition
that early Wednesday morning it
took fire and burned out. Through u
technical ejror in the drawing up of
the charge, pointed out by the counsel
for the defeudeut, A. M. Johnson, the
nase was dismissed. Heieafter the fire
by-law will b e strictly enforced, and
in case of ohimney fires where tlie
brigade in called_ out, a fine of $-'5
will bo indicted and when the brigade
is not oalled out ,10. The only cause
for these fires, which at any time
might spread and cause great destruction of property and even life, is carelessness. There are regular chimney
sweeps in town and it is considered
by the police and fire department that
a dollars' worth of prevention in this
ease may he worth more than a thousand dullais ol cure.

A GOOD LOCATION.
A Man Who Wants the City Wharf
Moved.
A prominent Nelson business man
suggested to The Miner yesterday that
when it, is finally decided lo put the
city wharf in proper shape, that instead of repairing the present decrepit
structuie it would be cheaper and immensely more satisfactory to put in a
new whar' entirely, locating it nt the
foot of Ward street, and making eonnection between the street and the
wharf by a bridge over the tracks.
By this all the dangers of the present
level ciossing of the line at the foot
of Hall street would be done away
with; the wharf would be nearer the
centre of town, and a better grade
possible. He also said that deep
water could be got at a shorter distance from tho shore as tlie bottom
instead of gradually sloping down, as
at Hall stieet took a sudden drop from
the Hat. When tbe present wharf
wus built in lH'.l-l the Ward street site
was considered the best except for the
difliculty of connecting with Vernon
street.

TIME TO THINK IT OVER.
Windsor, (Int., Aug. M.���John
Johnson, colored, pleaded guilty to
murderously assaulting Benjamin
Wiliiward. another colored man, in a
row over 'Ml cents in a crap game at
Windsor race track two years ago and
was sentenced to five years in Kingston penitentiary.
The ileal foi tbe Rook land group
of mining claims, situated about five
miles from Silverton, on Etght| Mile
creek, will lie completed within a few
days. Two years ago the Miner-
Graves syndicate secured the property,
paying the original owners a certain
cash sum and contracting to organize
a stuck company within two years,
snd to make the final payment to
them in stoek ill this company.
During these two years the svndi-
oato lias been developing the claims
anil the showing made bas been good
enough to justify going ahead and
completing the deal. Tlie company is
now being organized iu British
Columbia, and the deal will then be
completed.
Considerable development work has
beet done on the property, and the
Graves syndicate lias expended between ��''!.,(Ull) and 830,000 since the
lirst. payment was made. Tlie mine
is a low grade proposition, with
values running about equal in copper
and gold. Tbe showings are immense,
and it is considered the equal of any
in Hritish Columbia.
As soon as tlie claims arc developed
to a sufficient degree a smelter will be
erected on the property hy the owners,
who are the Craves syndicate. Judge
W. W. Spinks and Frank Watson.
hTeio is any amount of ore on the
property to keep a smelter going.
* The American Hoy Alining company
has begun work opening up the Black
Hawk, another of the claims belonging to the American Hoy group.
While the Hlack Hawk will be developed by the tunnel which is to run to
connect with the American Hoy tiin-
| nel OU tho other side of the mountain,
yet the primary idea of tlio management, is to bring ou t the ore from the
big property through the Black Hawk
aud then use the Last Chance tram.
This will bo a big thing for that
property. It means that thc tunnel
will be driven clenr through the
mountain and that both properties
'will be worked thiough the same
tunnel. The using of the Last Chance
tram will also mean a great saving of
time aud money for the American
Boy.
On the Hlack Hawk there is some
fine ore bodies and the development of
them will continue along with the
taking out of oie from the big mine.
On the American Hoy work is being
rushed as rapidly as possible and
there is a splendid showing made.
There Heems to he little doubt now
that there will he a smelter built in
South Kast Kootenay within the next
eight months, says tho Cranbrook
Herald. A resolution was adopted by
the board of directors of the Sullivan
mine, in Spokane last week, authorizing such a movement, and it is duo to
this fact that Sullivan stock, that
has heen lying dormant for thu past
five months at six and seven cents, has
has taken a jump to 1:.' bid and 15
asked.
Tne location of the smelter has nol,
been stated, hut there is every reason
to believe that it will be built at
Marysville, wherethere is magnificent
water power a splendid location for
the shipment of ore from tlie North
Star and Sullivan properties aud the
entire St. Maiy's country.
At the record oflice yesterday there
was but one location, Pardee, on
the south of the head of Kokanee
creek, about one mile from Kokanee
creek. Certificates of works were
granted to D. J, Steello on Canadian
Boy, to Frank Jumur, on Matilda to
F. Holland on Nelson, and to D. McArthur, on llruce. Transfers, one-
third interest each to T. Powell and
P.. Spencer, of tho Old Chum claim

T. Powell and R. Leaiy. in the Old
Hat claim from It. Spencer; one third
interest each to R. I.eary and It. Spun*
cot in the Tenderloin claim from T.
Powell, tho consideration in each case
being nominal.
Tho Onandago Mining Company.
whioh is operating a group of free
milling claims iu tlie mountains near
Erie, expect to stait its ten stamp
mill on Monday. . The company intends to mine un an extensive scale
aud among the auditions will be an
Increase of tun stamps in tlie mill and

surrounding claims will be grouped

Montana is owned by John F. Wilson
and partners of Pilot Hay.
Much dissatisfaction exist s in regain lo government roads, to which
attention was drawn a few days ago.
The government money is b ing spent,
to no purpose.
In the Immediate vicinity of Creston
there nre several so-called roads tbat
lead to nowhere, tine is built for a
mile on the C, 1'. 1!. right-of-way nnd
at places it. goes dangerously near the
track. Where does this road lead to'.'
Answer���Where'.1
Another wagon road has been built
from C. P, U. :lepot at Cieston for a
considerable distance���-probably ono
and a half miles. The brush was cut
at; tbe stumps were allowed to
��� email). Where does this road lead
tu".'      Answer���Where'.'
The government expended several
hundred dollars tbis spring in builil-
ng a trail from Duck creek to Arrow
creek" properties, three in number, a
fair showing certainly, but nothing
more than prospects, nor can they he
much more for a very considerable
lime. Why should one party more
than another be favored hy the _ov-
eiuiueni in the matter of passable
roads V
It is time this sort of filing wus put,
an end to. lt. is tbe duty of tho government to exercise due economy in
dealing out the people's money. This
wagon road affair at Creston does not
reflect any glory upon tbo lands and
works department.
Let a responsible man look into tho
needs of the scvo'al districts and having satisfied himself give out tlie work
by contract���tbo contractor to pay
fair wages
