(SPECIAI,- TO THE BIIN~.Il.)
Vancouver, June 17.���The case of
Mr. Oto, who sued A. McAllister, immigration olllcer for tho liritisli Columbia Government, for false arrest,
was awarded a verttict this afternoon,
from a special jury in the supreme
court of 8101) and costs, the entire
Bum amounting to about 8350- Oto
reached here by the Seattle steamer.
On attempting to land he was ordered
on board again by McAllister. Oto
protested lie was a British su'rject but
had not his certificate with him. Oto
refused to return to the boat. McAllister laid his hor.iln upon him to
guide him on board. Oto still refused
to go back io the ship. McAllister
then arrested him, detaining him under police surveillance but releasing
him after 24 hours, on his producing
his natiinili-iiton papers. Chief Justice M.-Coll, who presided, charged
the jury strongly in favor of the
plaintiff. His Lordship stated that if
Oto was the man mentlonod in the
certificate of naturalization asM. Oto,
the British Columbiu immigration
law did not apply to him and it was
a question of whether Oto had been
111 treated by McAllister and if so, to
what extent, and how much damages
should be awarded him. His Lord-
ship, however, stated that the fact
that Oto had a passport from the Emperor of Japan secured just prior to
his leaving Japan, naturally would
cause suspicion ns far as McAllister
was concerned, but tho jury could not
go behind the certificate of naturalization.
The demand of the fishermen was
made to thc canners direct today for
12>i cents a fish for the soason. The
canners refused the demand and closed
negotiations. A striae is now
thought to bo inevitable. On Saturday 2,000 Japanese met, and according to the Japanese interpreter, with
a very few exceptions, those present
agreed to the canner's offer of 12}$
cents to the 3rd of August and 10
cents thereafter if the run was big or
a continuation of I'-"., if it waB uot
large. It was explained that tbe Japanese had borrowed from the canners
for their winter keep and gave security and many others were iu distress
financially. It was decided, however, that they would send their President, Shimura.to interview the white
fishermen as well as the canners before definitely announcing their intention. They wished to have no
trouble, but most of ull did not wish
to strike.
Victoria, B. C, June 17.���Hon. Mr.

in no way interfere with the Finnish settlement scheme,
Victoria, B. C, June 17.���The department of education received word
today that school teachers were wanted at Dawson at salaries varying
from 82,500 to 84.000 a year. Word

Btrikes at Mount Syker,
Brantford, June 17.���The funeral of
Hon A. S. Hardy, ex-piemier of Ontario, took place yesterday and was
conducted hy the Masons, aud must be
ranked among] the most impressive

City, County and Township Councils,
public and separate school boards, the
council of Paris and the Brantford
Board of Trade, each attended in a

intimate friend, and A. J. Wilkes, for
many years a partner of Mr. Hardy in
the practice of law. There were
special trains from Toronto, Hamilton, Stratford and other points, all
bearing many leading men and tbe
funeral was a molt remarkable demonstration of personal affection
towards deceased.

CITY LIBRARY
GRANTED
A Short Session -Discussion
on Verandahs and
Library.
Police Commissioners' Report
Was Adopted Without
Discussion.
Cottonwood creek is threatening to
give the C. P. B. trouble at tbe low
bridge, In the recent freshet a laige
quantity of Btones and gravel was
bi ought down, almost closing the
opening under tb�� track, and tearing
out a new channel, beside the steam
shovel, which has been resting in tbe
mud and water for the past three
weeks. If another freshet comes it
loons at present ai If a good deal of
damage would be done there. C. P,
R. trnckmen were set to work yesterday at the embankment protecting the
track west of the yards. As tbe water is liable to rise quite high vet
they are making preparation* beforehand.
The City fathers spent only an hour
together at their meeting last evening
and for the most part it was as calm
and pleasant as the weather of tbe
last few days. The rise in the temperature caused the council's baseball
games to be called off and when the
police commissioners' report was read
it was filed without discussion. Only
once during the proceedings was
there any evidence of tbe pievailing
temperature, which was caused by an
enquiry from Aid. Gillett respecting
the reason why Aid. Madden'a verandah was permitted to remain standing when every one else had been compelled to remove his. Aid. Madden
granted the aldermen full power to remove   it at any time they wished.
Alderman Gillett moved that be
be given seven days in which to remove it. Aid. Hamilton did not
agree with the motion, but suggested
that as it was understood that the
owner of the verandah intended to
put in a good brick front and plate
glass windows tbat he be not hurried.
Everyone knows that these things
could not be done in a few days.
Aid. Irving suggested that it waB not
necessary to pass another motion on
tbe matter, as tbe one already passed
was all tbat was necessary.
Aid. Madden explained that he intended to put in a new front ai d expected to have it dons by this time
but as he had only received his plans
and specifications a few days ago, he
was not going to have his place all in
disorder on the first of July, and if
the aldermen wanted to bave it taken
down before then they might go
ahead and tear it down. With that
explanation the motion was not seconded und the matter was allowed to
drop.
One matter of very great public interest was the reception of a deputation of directors of the public library.
It has long been an open secret that
the City library is enjoying a precarious existence, and notwithstanding
the noble efforts of the library board
to keep the Institution afloat, they
have experienced great difficulty in
doing so. On account of this E. A.
Grease and H. Bird were appointed a
deputation (with Mr. Hedley, who
was unable to attend) from the library board to wait upon the council.
Mr. Grease made an eloquent plea on
behalf of the Institution. In the
course of his remarks he referred to
the fact that during the three years
it had been in existence it haj answered Its purpose and had unquestionably been a boon to thc homeless
citizens. During the last 12 months
there had been 20,303 attendance at
the rooms with an average attendance
917 per month. In January last there
was an attendance of 2,990, which indicated that the library was serving a
long felt want. AL the piesent time,
however, the funds were exhausted
and unless they received immediate
assistance from some source they
would be compelled to Bhut down. It
would take an appropriation of
8150 to carry the work over another
two months but if the Council would
renew their last year's grant of 8500,
or better still take over the entire
control of the institution and make it
a free city library, the directors
wonld be only too glad. The total
cost of running the library for the
last year had been 81,233 and the expenses of rent aud management
amounted to 870 per mouth.
Alderman Hamilton suggested that
the large patronage ot the institution
should assist the funds. Mr. Bird
stated that they bad a contribution
box in the library and all it contained during the last month was 50
cents.
Alderman Patterson asked if the
steamboat and railway companies
had been asked to subscribe and received a negative  reply.
Alderman   Selous   thought   the   li-
UNEQUALLED
SANITATION
Nelson's Superb System
Drainage and Sewage
Disposal.
The Municipal Electric Light
Plant���How It Will Be
Improved.
In the sewerage system Nelson possesses an unequalled service. In the
number of houses with sewer connections there is not a eity in America-
vi'th a hlgherc average. If this were
all it alone would be a strong showing for the health ful ness of the city
but when the unequalled, manner in
Whioh the sewers are kept clean is
considered it is one of tne strongest
points in Nelson's favor as a residential city. In each main there is one
or more of the streams and springs
that flow down the mountain side
turned in at the head. These keep a
constant and swift 11 _w of water
down the pipes, thus keeping them
perfectly flushed all the time,anJ preventing tbe formation of sewer gas.
In 1897, when the sewer system was
first started, 5,512 feet of sewer mains
were put down. At the present date
the city has 38,417 feet of mains laid,
which, with what nas been provided
for to be built this year will give a
total of nearly eight miles, the same
amount thut Spokane had in 1899.
The sewage is discharged into the
lako through two steel pipes one at
the foot of Stanley street and the
other at Cedar Btreet. Both these
pipes are carried far out into very
deep water. North of Gore street and
east of Kootenay every Btreet has a
sewer main, this embracing nearly all
of the residential and business portions of the city.
All plumbing done in Nelson in
connection with sowers, baths or
sinks, has to be by permission and under the inspection of the city engineer. At present tbeie are 700 sinks,
625 flush closets, and 450 baths, with
sewer connections. There are 104
manholes, for the inspection of the
sewers, and 30 catchbasins to carr"
off the sin phis surface water on the
streets.
What all this means for the city's
future as a residential centre only
those who have lived in towns or cities where the sewerage system was
poor or inadequate can realize. In
many of the eastern cities, where
several generations have passed before
sewers were put ln, the ground in
many places has faeoomo so saturated
with waste, tbat it is a regular
breeding gronnd of disease.
Those who have resided in Rossland
for Buy time before coming to Nelson
have all been so much impressed hy
the Immense difference in the sanitation of the two cities, a difference So
great that it is almost impossible to
compare them. In Rossland they have
a few sewers, but so far have not
been able to arrange for any satisfactory outlet for them.
If Nelson bad nothing further to
offer as a residential city for families
of mine owners,etc.,of the Kootenays,
beyond these three things���pure air,
pure water and perfect sanitation���
the city would still possess a combination that Is not to be found easily
anywhere else in America.
In ordinary seasons there is cnouirb
power to keep the lights going steadily, hut generally in January and
I February there Is trouble, owing to
the freezing up of much of the water
supply of Cottonwood creek. To obviate this a flume wns Infill, from
OKI Whitewater creek, just across tb-jG.P.R.
summit from Cottonwood lake, which
brings an additional supply _f water.
Even this has not been sufficient for
the worst of tbe winter, lasting this
year during the whole of February,
and as the growth of the city constantly demands new lights, other
means of securing power havo to be
found. For a while hy damming
the outlet of Cottonwood lake and
raising the waters some six feet, thus
converting the lake into a storage reservoir, enough water would be secured during the summer to tide over the
low water conditions of the winter,
but this would only be a temporary
expedient. The plan under consider,
ation is to put in a power station al
Kootenay Falls, at which point there
is a fall at low water of 02 feet. This
site, which has already been surveyed, and of which the government has
already made a grant to the city, including both water rights and land,
Is some three miles below the railway bridge crossing the river. When
the power statiou there i�� put in,
besides furnishing light the city will
also be able to dispose of power for
manufacturing and other purposes.
The city will then possess a lighting service that is more in accordance with the efficiency of the other
departments of pulbic service than'
the present overstrained outfit.
STRIKE IS

Situation.
(SPECIALS TO THE! MIMKK.)
Montreal, June 17.���Tbe strike ot
the C. I* 1!. truck men from the Atlantic to the Pacific was inaugurated at
ii o'clock this morning. Committeemen in the city claim that they bave
received advices from all parts ot
the line Indicating that OS per cent,
of the men have obeyed the order of
the committee declaring the strike.
John T. Wilson, president of the International Truckmen's Uniou, will
arrive in the city today from Portland, and will assist the men actively
in their light with the big   railway.
North Bay, Ont., June 17.���Section
men and bridge men of this division

There is no excitement, and everything is quiet. The C. P. R. have
about 20 special detectives stationed
along the division.
i Continued on   Fourth Page.
In 1894 Nelson had its first electric
lights installed. The plant was put in
by a private company who operated
it until December 1898, when it was
purchased by the city, At the time
of purchase there was hut one direct
current machine, capable of supplying 2,500 lights of 10-candle power
each, which is the unit of measurement. The city installed an alternating dynamo, with a capacity also of
2,500, thus affording 5,000j lights of
10 candle power. The uid machine
supplies most of the business portion
of the town, while the new one lights
the residential and part of tbe business sections.
On January 1st of the present year
there were 4,400 lights, of the average
candle power, in use. The power for
the generating of this electricity Is
furnished by two water wheels, one
with a capacity of 230, and the other
of 200 hoi6e power. The water Is
from the falls in Cottonwood creek,
which there has a head   of   100   feet.
Interesting Letter From a
Boy In South Africa.
The following verj interesting
story of life and war as it is in
South Africa has been taken from a
couple of letters received from John
G. Hlaney who went out with the
South African Constabulary. They
have been received by his parents in
thik city. The let'.ers are written
from the camp at Krugersdorp, and
dated May 5th.
He speaks of his health being good
but stated that nine of the boys were
left at the Cape Town hospitni, including Clark, Sergeant Davies, and
at the time of writing Pat Partrigde,
Oscar Robinson and Bob Roid were
in the hopsital, the latter suffering
from a slight attack of dysentery.
The journey to Krugersdorp,through
Cape Colouy,   the  Orange Free   Stntc
and the Transvaal   occupied ten days.
They   travelled   in   open     cars    and
stopped the trains at night on account
of the danger attending   night traffic.
On   the   way   out   they   met  Dewet,
juBt after   leaving   Krunstad. It   was
5 o'clook in the morning   and   lie was
riding at thc head of  a   force   of  300
mounted   men.    He   did    not   attack
them, but for what   reason   they   did
not at  first   understand.    When   they
had passed   him   about   a   mile   they
were soon made   painfully   aware   of
the secret     of   his   movement,    when
they found the   rails   torn   up and   a
Boer sitting   with   a   charge of dynamite   ready to blow   up  the train immediately she ran off tho truck.    Fortunately,   howevei,    the engineer no
ticed it   in time and immediately   reversed his engine and run back nt express Bpecd.    A   hail   of   bullets welcomed their departure winch hurt   no
one as they all   lay   down in the bottom of the car.    They then   returned,
preceded by an armed   train, and saw
the column disappearing   over a small
kopje.    While they were going up the
country   an   hospital    train,     which
preceded them by   only   three   hours,
was blown to match wood.    Two lady
nurses, and one   trooper   were   killed
outright and their train picked up the
dead and the boys buried   them.    The
wounded were taken on the train back
to the hospital. All along the journey
they   found   whole     tiains   derailed,
thrown over on their sides and turned
upside down.    The   bridges  und   viaducts showed signs of   ill usage, there
being large steel girders  twisted into
all conceivable  shapes,   lying   around
In every direction.
It is rather unsafe being out late at
nights as the following facts will
show. Every night tho lloers are to
be seen around their camp and as all
the troopers are BOpposed to be in
camp before dark, and thev have orders to shoot all who aro m sight outside the lines. The Boers are very
treacherous and frequently uppear
arrayed in British   kakhi

truckmen of the   C. P
From what can
today ull the
, R.   in this dis
trict have gone out on strike.
Toronto, June 17.���C. P. R. officials
claim that not more than 00 per cent,
of the C, P. R. trackmen are on
strike over the system. There are
employed nn the Ontario division
about 450 trackmen and of these it is
safe to say that quite 250 men are
out, if not more. The strikers, according to it statement from Montreal of Superintendent Timinermun,
have developed their greatest strength
between Smiths Falls and Owen
Sound, and east and north of Toronto
on the main li_e, and west between
Toronto and Windsor.
Winnipeg, June 17.���Up to 3
o'clock no men on thc western division had gone out. Towards evening
all the men up to Selkirk, cast 25
miles from the city, went out. Hero
it is expected the men will get ordeis
tonight to quit, Superintendent
Leonard is confident thut the men are
satislied with their wnjes und   work.
Winnipeg.���Later.���Trains are running on time. Locnl trackmen statu
that 200 will join the strike on this
division tomorrow. They have no
grievance but the ciicular received
from the east desired practicnl sympathy from western employees. Trackmen have no organization on the western division,
As yet the trackmen's strike has not
affected thc Kootenay division nor is
it likely to do so to any considerable extent. The tiackraens' union is
not strong in this district us far as
could be learned from the men, who
givo no satisfaction to an enquiring
newspaperman. The men here ure
very well satisfied with their berths
uml hnve expressed themselves to thut
effect. If any of tlicra strike it will
be purely through sympathy and In
accordance with ordeis from the
headquarters of the union. This, of
course, will nffeet only union men.
Hmvcver, ns the fight is largely confined to the main line and any action
of the men on the Kootenay section
could not possibly effect the final settlement of the difficulty by the men
aud the company, the locnl trackmen
arc not over enthusiastic regurding
the stiike, as they lealize that their
striking would be of Utile assistance
to the cause of their fellow laborers.
There are about 250 trackmen on this
division and no difficulty is anticipated by the company in keeping the
lines open even if some of them do
strike.
A Miner reporter last evening interviewed Superintendent Downie of
the Kootenay division. He said that

CUP DEFENDF.R.
Sir Thomas Lipton denies the report that he offered to iace the Cup
defender in a run across the ocean,
but was quite willing to do so and
did not see why such a trial should
not be made. "It would bs good
sport," he said. j"aud a fine teat of
seamanship. I have often heard this
or that as to what could or would not
be done if one were in midocean.
Why not s_e? Such a race would be
an admirable test of the stability of
a yacht under varying conditions."
This was cabled acioas to New
Ycrk, where it has created something
like consttrtiution. Such views," in
the light ot" al) surrounding circumstances, are tantamount to a challenge. It is one thing to build a defender to race in local waters, but
quite another to build one to stand
all the hazards of a sea voyage. The
expression of a wish for a trial of
this nature, coming from Sir Thomas
Lipton, is understood by members
of the New York Yacht Club as an
invitation to act upon it���as. in fact,
a challenge���and they are in great
tribulation of spirit as to what they
shall oo about it. Excuses that will
afford means of escape are abundant.
"The question was raised by members cf the Club, "it is said, "as to
whether or not the syndicate controlling the Constitution would be open
for further propositions of any kind
after the cup races, were over. It
is said the owners of the boat
will put the Constitution on the market as soon as her function is performed, aud it is seriously debated at the
Yacht Club whether or not the managers of the boat would arrange for
further races of any nature."
All of which means that Cup defenders are not yachts, but the lliinsiest
kind of racing shells, constructed
for the greatest speed under conditions that are well understood and
may therefore be anticipated. In this
respect a defender has a great advantage over a challenger built in
the more solid British fashion, and
with strength enough to stand an
ocean voyage, 'i'he Constitution will
doubtless serve to defend the America
Cup next August, or September, but
she would probably go to pieces in a
stiff blow out in midocean, and therefore the proposed race n?ioss the Atlantic is not to be entertained. Between a racing machine and a yacht,
as between msjblne racing and yachting, thcro ii a vast difference. It is
sincerely to be hoped the rule requiring the challenger to come to the
course on her own bottom will be
maintained,otherwise some future Lipton may be tempted to build a machine that will require to he sent
across in a case packed with dne wool
aud the lutliest of feathers. And
then will begin in very earnest the
degeneration of yachting.

the good work cf which may be continued indefinitely. Against this is
the regrettable fact that the birth rate
has also declined, and with still
greater rapidity. In the course of six
months or a year we shall probably
get an installment of Canadian census
returns, when we shall learn something of the conditions in our own
country.
Down at Ottawa they are still engaged in taking the census; over in
London they havo advanced so far
with the returns that a volume dealing with the population has b.'en issued. We learn some interesting
things from tlie volume iu question.
In England and Wales there arc one
million and a few thousands more females than mules. The discrepancy is
not Increasing, as that is very nearly
the difference shown by the lust census. The urban population is 77 per
cent., against 76 per cent, ten years
ago. This does not necessarily mean,
however, tbat the rural population is
falling off; the urban is simply increasing at a greater ratio than the
ruial. Ono of the other remarkable
things to be credited to the Victorian
era is thc fact that the population of
Groat Britain doubled Itself duiing
the reign of her late Majesty. That
was never before said of a British sovereign, and it is extremely unlikely it
ever will again. It is also revealed
that the death rato has been steadily
declining since 1801. That is something to the credit of sanitary science,
We know now why Victoria is such
a slow, sleepy place. The Colonist
was disappointed over the attendance
at a public meeting the other night,
and said that very few of the "leisure
class" were present. The "leisure
class" will account for both the milk
in the cocoa nut and the hair outside.
Through Punch, and in his own peculiar way, Sir John Tenniel has
been handling the public men of
Great Britain with and without
gloves these many years. Studying
one of his inimitable caricatures, one
would think he had courage and confidence to face any situation. Yet at
the complimentary dinner given him
a short time ago, on the occasiou cf
his retirement from Punch, ho broke
down utterly in responding to the
toast of his health. The world furnishes many instances of greater and
lesser men who have heen troubled
with the same complaint���bashfulneso.

COUNTY   COURT.
Cases Heard Yesterday at the Opening
of the Sittings.
A Bitting of thc county court com'
menuecl before His Honor ,ludgo Forin
yesterday morning at ID a. '.. After
disposing of several formal Supreme
Court chamber applications the regular county court list was taken.
Crawford vs. Croft, judgment summons, the defendant not appearing
ir. answer to the eummons an order
for 14 days   committal wns granted.
Turner, Bceton A Co. vs. McDonald, judginen. summons. Defendant
appeared and after his evidence was
given no order was granted.
T.irsch vs. O'Driscoll, judgment
summons. Defendant did not appear
ami as he had been ordered at last court
to pay by installments and had fai'ed
to do so, an order was granted hy the
judge that ho make payment in 10
days or be committed for two weeks,
��� A number of eases were then called
in which there was no defense entered and judgment was given against
the several defendants,   by default.
The contested cases were then taken
up, first on the list was Vice and Williams vs. Hrydges, an aetion to recover $1011 paid to defeudant on a real
estate deal in which ueteudant acted
as agent. After the plaintiffs hij(l
made the ;leal and paid out $10(1 part
purchase price, they discovered more
mortgages on the property than had
heen represented to them, hence the
present suit to recover the amount
paid over and damages if any are
found to have been incurred. After
taking all the evidence of tho parties
the legal arguments were postponed
to be heard on Wednesday at 10.30
a. in.
The next ease taken up was Lin-
burg vs. Macpherson au action to recover $3.50 lr.ro of rig and $00 for
damages for loss of rig, tho horse
having run away an., smashed the
cutter. After hearing the evidence
of all parties his honor decided thnt
no damages were due to plaintiff.
That the accident, was not caused by
fault of the driver, the defendant,
and that all the plaintiiT could collect
was the hire of rig wlii :h had already
been paid into   court by defendant.

A LUCKY FIND.
Whnt proved to Oe a more profitable find than gold happened the other day to a traveller from San Francisco, while at lunch in one of the
leading restaurants in Nelsou. tie
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when to his astonishment his appe-
titie, which he had lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly ret nncd to
him, with renewed vigor, file pie
bad a very solid texture nnd a rich
mellow llavor. The cook informs us
that it was made from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." Nono other just as
good.    Insist on "The Morse llrand."

tail Clerks Association this evening in
the Miner' Onion Hall. It begins at

effect   in   unexpected   quarters.
The tire hose teams were out last
night practising on Baker street for
the celebration. They will practice
steadily from now ou each evening,
getting ready for the grand contest.
The Retail Clerks' Association wish
to remind people who are in the habit
of visiting NelsoD to purchase goods
to bear in mind that all reliable and
up to-date stores are closed Thursday
afternoon.
The fair weather on Sunday made
tbe lake a popular resort and scores
of boats were out. A large number
of people took a pleasant car ride
out to the park. The street railway company carried over 1200 passengers on Sunday.
The (Ireenwood Times devotes a
flattering paragraph to the marriage

The committee in charge of the
Dominion Day regatta had a meeting
last evening to rearrange the crews.
Some of the men have dropped out
of the contests which has reduced the
numbers of crews to ten. The various
crews are practising steadily.
The business end of an electric
light wire has become loose at tbe
corner of Siliea and Ward streets and
youngsters are amusing themselves by
putting the current on and off for the
lun of watching the spasmodic effoits
oi the lamp to stay lit. If it is not
speedily repaired someone may get a
shock that will be attended with serious results.
Mr. Henry Holgate, Toronto, consulting engineer for the Bonnington
Falls Power <S_ Light Co , has arrived
from the East. He will be here a
week or ten days in connection with
the work of installing the new plant
at Bonnington Falls, which is being
done under his direction. It will
take a year to complete the alterations
which will supply 16,000 horse power
instead of the 4,000 produced by the
present plant.
The latest prizes to be added to
the list for the Dominion Day celebration are a 820 silver cup, to be at

nel to show his gun and having secured it the unfaithful sentry is marched
off a prisoner, with his own rifle
pointed at his head, to the Boer cauip.
Sometimes the troops aie placed in
very dangerous positions on account
of thisstrategem but the Boer does not
come off a winner in every case, as is
shown by a rather thrilling experience enjoyed by Blaney, who by
great presence of mind escaped capture and turned the tables on his
would be captor Blaney was placed
as one of the outpost sentries, the
night before writing the letter to his
mother. It was a very daik nigbt
and at 2 o'clock in the morning a
man, dressed in a British officer's uniform approached him from the direction of the Irish Fusiliers, whose
camp was two miles away. Blaney
waited until he was within forty
yards and commanded him to halt.
This he refused to do. The command
was repeated, at the same time raising hia rifle to his shoulder. The
stranger replied that he was the commanding officer, going tbe rounds to
see what kind of sentries they had.
He approached to where Blaney was
standing and said, "Who taught you
to come to the ready in that manner?
This is the way to do it." But,
writes Blaney, "He was not quick
enough, as I stepped back and covered
him, and marched him to a rock,
where we stayed until I was relieved
at 3 o'clock by the guard.'' He received his due allowance of praise
frrm Gaptain Bennet for having done
so well with so little expeiience.
Tbey were, at the time of writing,
in close proximity to the enemy, and
were expecting a scrimmage with
them at any time. They have been
quarantined for the last two weeks
on account of measles and seveial of

and sore throats. Referring to the fu-
ure of the country he expresses as his
opinion that there will be lots of
chances to make money after the close
of the war. He describes Johannes-
berg as a beautiful city, like Paradise
or the Garden of Eden.
His letter is full of interest and
written in a cheerful, hopeful tone.
He sends his excuses to all the boys
and promises to write to them when
he gets a chance.

Although some lines of business are
not particularly busy, except on

Margaret Hunter of Arnprior. After
the happy event the newly married
couple proceeded to Ymir where they
will spend their honeymoon.
Another event took place at the residence of Father Ferland, at one
o'clock yesterday when Jessio Gillies

Ernest Mansfield,who returned from
Europe Sunday morning, accompan-
ied by Count Frederic de Baillien-

the property of the United Gold
Fields of British Columbia, will be
emptied of water at once and development renewed. A representative of
Fraser at Chalmers of Chicago, was
in Nelson last week and left for the
Joker to install a complete pumping
plant. When questioned by The Miner regarding his intentions Mr. Mansfield said he had nothing to say at
present and would neither confirm
nor deny tbe leport that machinery is to be installed. Mr. Mansfield
and the Count will probably leave for
the camp today.
