Workmen Petition Against dodges
and Maintain Rights to Organize.
San Juan, Porto Rico, Dec. 10.���
Less than n hundred laborers answered the call from u loenl committee of
the American Federation of Labor to
attend a mass meeting here yesterday
afternuou. The slimncss of the attendance was evidently due to the order of
the court declaring the organization
illegal. A more representative assemblage of working people nas never
before seen in this part of the   world.
Santiago lgcslias, president of the
federation of workmen of Porto Rico,
explained the object of his visit here

to San Juan, to use his influence to
bring about the removal of the two
native judge 1'of the district court and
the appointment of Americans in their
places. With the petition will be filed
a charge of political bias and prejudice. It wns also decided to ignore
the ruling of the court, dissolving the
Federation Libre, or local organization. Those present at the meeting
were mostly delegates from local
unions. The meeting confirmed thc
resolution adopted some time ago to
nfliliate the local organization with
the American Federation of Labor.

Lord Rosebery Criticises Government  and   Liberals.
Peace    Overtures     Allowable Without Debasement.
Chesterfield, Dec. 10. ���Lord Rosebery's long expected and much
heralded speech delivered here tonight
was received with marked enthusiasm
by au immense croud. It can hardly
be said to have thrown much light
along the pathway of the Liberal
party. Resolved Into its elements, the
speech merely said: Oet together.
Tho speaker, himself, confessed that
he did not pretend to say how this
cohesion should be accomplished. The
tenor of the former premier's speech
was that the ministry was wrong but
tho Liberals should he very careful
how they tried to set it right.
Concerning the government's co n-
duct of the war, Lord Rosebery was
severe and scornful. He was paiticu-
hirlv sarcastic at the expense of the
explanation of the Earl of Ualsbury,
the lord chancellor, that only a
"sort" of warfare was now going on,
and he strongly condemned the scandalous misrepresentations by which
the government had precipitated the
Inst general election. Lord Rosebery
strongly blamed the government for
its tactlessness which had produced
unparalleled ill-will toward Great
Britain in European countries and
which he attributed largely to the
provocative oratory of Mr. Chamberlain, the Colonial Secretary. WhiUt
he was emphatic on the necessity of
vigorously prosecuting the war expressing the fullest confidence in Lord
Kitchener, Lord Roseoery said be
thought the government should be prepared to listen to peace overtures and
contended there was nothing degrading or abasing in recognizing the
exiled Boer government for the purpose ol making peace.

Washington, Dec. 10.���An echo of
the verdict of thc court of inquiry in
the rase of Bear Admiral Schley was
heard in thc senate today when Mr.
Jones (Arkansas) introduced a resolution extending tbe thanks of congress
and of the American people to Admiral Schley and the officers and men
under his command, during the battle
of July 3rd, 18U8, off the harbor of
Santiago (Us Cuba. In submitting the
resolution, Mr. Jones made no statement and it was referred without
comment to the committee on naval
A resolution heretofore offered by
r. Vest, of Missouri, instructing the
committee.on judiciary to inquire into
the subject of anarchy and to report
to the senate by bill or otherwiae, a
constitutional method by which congress may legislate for the suppression of anarchy and for the oontrol of
anarchists, was adopted.
Little business except that of
rontir.e- character was transacted in
open session, thc senate devoting the
greater part of the day to consideration of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty.
The treaty was ratified hy tbe
decisive vote of 72 to 8. The vote was
reached a few minutes before 5 o'clock
after almost five hours of discussion
behind closed doors. There were no
sensational incidents during the entire time. The debate was confined
exelusivly to a discussion of the
merits uf the agreement and thc
policy of its provisions.
The principal speech of the day was
made by Senator Teller in opposition
to the treaty and ho was followed iu
rapid succession by twelve or fifteen
other senators who spoke briefly
either for or against thu motion to
ratify. Senator Clay was one of the
Southern senators who spoke in advocacy of the treaty. He contended that
tbe treaty should be ratified because it
secured the abrogation of the Clayton
Bulwer treaty. Senator Mason made
a strong plea for the treaty, expressing his gratflcation that American
diplomacy had succeeded in securing
such a triumph as this treaty was over
the original Hay-Pauncefote agreement.' Senator Bacon's speech was
made in connection with a motion to
amend the treaty.
In presenting this amendment he
said he was in favor of a canal and
would vote for the treaty with the
Davis amendment. He said he opposed tbe treaty because he did not
believe it would give the United
States full control of tbe canal. He
said that Great Britain rejected tbe
amended Hay-Pauncefote treaty, but
sent us another treaty almost identical with the former treaty as amended
except as regards the Davis amendment. He considered the fact as the
most important feature of tbe whole
This was an exceptionally full session when the time arrived for a vote,
but the certainty of ratification had
become so apparent that there was
comparatively little interest in tbe
proceedings. The votes ou the amendments succeeded eaoh other quickly.
Senator Culberson offered an amendment to intert tbe Davis fortification
amendment of the last .session. This
was defeated 15 to 62. Senator Bacon
then offered an amendment striking
out the preamble in the reference to
the Clayton-Buiwer treaty the words
''without impairing the general principle of neutralization established in
Artiole VIII of that convention."
Also the following words in Artiole
II relating tu the purchase of stock,
"subject to the provisions of the present treaty," also all of Article III
relating to the neutralization of the
canal also all of Article IV declaring
against the change of territorial
sovereignty. All of this was embodied in one amendment and defeated 18
to 60. The treaty was then ratified
by a vote of 72 to 0

W. A. Galliher, M. P., for the Yale-
Cariboo riding, has declared bis intention to endeavor by every legitimate means to secure the appointment
of a senator for his riding. The
growth and magnitude of the mining
industry, which has now become the
leading one in the province, demands
such representation in the upper
federal house, where it needs a friend
to properly represent it and to speak
lor it when it wants anything. There
are virtually five members of the
house of commons and two senators at
the ooast. The third senator carries
on a business in Cariboo, bnt really
resides in Vancouver, and hence the
ooast representation is greater than it
should be, while the entire lode mining seotionof British Columbia is without a representative in tlie upper
house and it has only one member.
Mr. Galliher, to represent it in the
lower house. While Mr. Galliher is
a very able man aud does all that he
oan for his constituents still he should
have an ally in thc upper house and
the federal authorities must make
this concession to tho people of the
riding. The man who appears to be
the most prominent in the constituency for the place of senator is Dr. A.
C, Sinclair, of Rossland. He has oeen
strongly and spontaneously endorsed
by a majority of the Liberal associations throughout the district. Be has
been a life-long, steadfast and consistent Liberal and enjoys the confidence of the leading members of the
Laurier government. If selected for
the position he would, we sincerely
believe, take rank among the front
benchers in the upper house. Besides
this he is a pioneer of the Kootenays
and is in complete touoh with the
mining interests, knowing its needs,
Hnd would be of great help to them iu
thc position uf senator. Then, too, he
is a broad gauge man and would
neglect none of the other Interest!
that would come under his care if he
is selected for the position.
That the representation of Kootenay
and Yale is demanded by the people
of the province Is shown in the following passed by the Kaslo Board of
Trade on December 13tn;
Whereas, the Province of British
Columbia is represented in the parliament of Canada by six members of thc
house of commons and three senators;
and whereas, the population of Kootenay and Yale, shown by the recent
census, is about one-third of the population of the whole province and of
tbe nine members of both commons
and senate only oue is resident in the
southern interior of British Columbia
where tho business interests are
diverse lrom those uf every other part
of Canada.
Be it resolved, that this board re
speotfully submits that in the event
of a vacancy occurring in tlie senate
representation uf British Columbia
suoh vacancy should, as a matter of
fair representation by population aud
Interest, be fillud by calling to the
senate a resident of this mining distriot, familiar with its  requirements.

that the government has hitherto

It is too late for the incompetent

will be fen and far between on Friday
next when tbe polling takes place.
At another time, nndet more auspicious conditions, and provided the cost
uf the proposed plant is known to a
eertaintly the people would be almost
unanimous in its support. Under the
existing condition of affairs with
mining under a temporary cloud and
a generally uncertain condition of
affairs it would be most injudicious
to now go abead with this enterprise.
The element of uncertainty as to tne
cost of the proposed plant is one that
must be cleared up before money i.-,
borrowed to pay for the plant and its
An electrical expert should be
called in to make tbis estimate, and
this could be done without any reflection on the abilities of Mr.McJnlloch,
the oity engineer. When a mining
company purposes erecting a special,
plant whiM is ou tside of the re gn-
lar operations of the mine it calls in
an cutside engineer who is a specialist. Say, for instance, that a mining
company finds it necessary to put in
un aerial tramway for the more economical transportation of its ores, it
secures thc services of an engineer
who makes a specialty of potting up
this sort of plant,and this is done without io lhe least discrediting the engineer of the mine. In the same way,
if the city purposes putting in an
electric light plant, should call in
an expert electrical engineer, who is
a specialist, and who devotes hia
time to making estimates and plana
of this type of plants. With a proper
report furnisbed by an elcetrical engineer the city authorities wonld know
exactly what the plant would cost,
and could go on with the task of providing it Intelligently. At present
tbey have an estimate prepared by the
eity engineer who is not an electrical
engineer. This estimate was hurriedly prepared and must of necessity
be incomplete and misleading,
although it is as good as a competent
engineer like Mr. MeCulloch, could
prepare in the shoit time at his disposal, and the result will be a flash
in the pan. The bylaw should be
beaten by a large majority and doubtless it will be Further un when a
proper estimate oan bo made of the
cost and the city is in a more prosperous condition the bylaw oan be intro-
decd, carried and the electric light
pant erected.
Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.

There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
cases.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. I cannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and tislhma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. I
saw your iidverliKerueut for tlie cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, nnd thought you had over-spoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm,   S��nd me a full size bottle.
Rev, Dr. Morris Wc.-lislrr,
Rabbi of tha Oong. Bnai Israel,
New York, Jan, 3,1001
Db Taft Bros. Mbdicinb Co.,
Gentlemen: Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy for Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troubles whioh combine with Asthma.
Its success is cstonishiug and wonderful.
After having it carefully analyzed, we oan state that Asthmaleno contains
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.   Very truly yours,
Avon Springs, N. Y, Feb. 1, IDOL

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of di'ty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been atneted with spasmodic asthma for tin- past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmnlen��.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon notioed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel tbat I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afnicted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHBLPb, M. D.
Db. Tait Bros. Medicine Co, Feb. 5,1901.
Gentlemen i I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous remedies, bnt they have all failed. I ran across your advertisement and
started with a trial bottle. I found relief at onoe. I have since purchased your
full-sized bottle, and I am ever grateful. I have a family of four children, and
for six years was nnable to work. I am now in the best of health nnd am doing
business every day.   This testimony you can make suoh use of as yon Bee fit.

The strides made in the uses of
electricity during the past oentury
were something wonderful as they
included thc sending of messages over
wires, on land and In cables under
water, the quadruple!, sender and
receiver, lighting by electricity, the
telephone and many other improvements of minor note. Wireless telegraphy, although experiments were
conducted just at the oloae of tbe last
century, may be said to belong to the
il.-uvn of tne present century and nill
go down in history as among the
wonders of tbis century. The
grHdnal extension of the wireless system by which messages were sent at
flrst for a few milea then 200 and
finally    across    the      Atlantic,      a
distance of 1,700 miles, is simply
wonderful and a feat whioh is the
crowning triumph of telegraphy. It
is a scientific accomplishment that
completely overshadows anything that
has yet been accomplished by clec-
ricity. Telegraphing over suon a
distance as across thc Atlantic ocean
la, as Jj Sgimr Maroonl sajs, in an
embryonic state, but aa he haa proven
tbat it can be done with a single
letter of his code it iB reasonable to
suppose that the entire alphabet can
be transmitted and that is all that is
wanted. The question now is to dc-
turm' ie whether under all sorts of
condition and with varying weather,
in storm and in sunshine, during
night and in day, it can be used;
in other words it must he. shown that
wireless telegraphy will span the
waste of wat"rs that separate tho various continents nt all times and that
messages cau be transmitted over thc
waters with as much facility as they
ean over the land by wires or under
)ho waters by meana ot cables. Then
it will have reached a commercial
value and will replace the cables tnat
have been strung across the deep seas
and along tbe bottoms of all the
Tho Importance of Signor Marconi's
discovery can scarcely be estimated.
Hia   invention   will   rank   witb   the
greatest that have been made and the
name of Marconi will be remembered
with the many great inventors who
have thought out problems and contrived machines and other useful
things which have been of great
benefit to their fellow men.

H. E- CROASDAILE Agent Nelson-
Eugene Croteau, eecretary-teasurer
of the Cascade Mining company, ia in
the city. In speaking yesterday about
the Cascade mine he said that the
siding, located at the junction of the
road from the mine and the Columbia
and Western railway, is about cora-
pleted. Shipments of oie therafore
will soon be made. At the mine tho
ore sbeds, bins and everything else is
ready for shipping. The directors have
appointed M. E. Purcell, formerly
superintendent of the (liant, as superintendent of the Cascade and from
now on the mine will be inn under
his direction. Mr. Pureell is a
veteran miner and thu directors feel
certain that he will soon put the
mine on a self-supporting basis. The
direotois are greatly pleased at securing so valuable a man. A full force
of men is engaged in stoping ore and
in developing the mine. The flrst
shipment should be made within a
week and it is expected that 1,000
tons will be shipped within the next
thiee months.
Though work has been closed for
the present on the Blue Bird mine at
Deer Park very good progress has
been made during the past summer.
0 H. Donghten, the manager, was in
Nelson on Saturday after laying off
the men. He has, however, brought
from the Spokane Iron works a concentrator on which the work of erection will begin at once aud which
will be completed about March 1st of
next year. The initial capacity will
be 23 tons but tha plant will be so
arranged that the capacity can be
doubled without a very large additional cost. There is already on the
property a 3.r>-hurso power boiler and
hoist. There will be sufficient water
from the mine to meet the requirements of the concentrator.
The work done during the past summer haB been on the lines of development whioh has now reached tho
stage that the mine can supply the
concentrator without diculty. A shaft
was sunk to the depth of 15 feet and
from the bottom a crosscut of !i00 feet
was run to meet the ledge which was
then drifted on for 21(1 feet. The ore
inns from seven feet to nine feet in
width and with the pitch of the vein
the depth of 175 feet gives a depth on
the vein of about 300 feet and there is
already on the dump between 300 and
400 tons of ore.
Mr. Doughten expects to resume
mining about Feoruary 1st.

Chas. Gray, of Trail, has two men at
work and a syndicate of men connected with the smelter hab a small force
employed on the Little Lottie.
There has been a heavy fall of snow
on the mountains through the Sioean,

brought down from the mines as fast
as it can be shipped, large reserves
baving accumulated.

now that the mines have resumed lie
says he is anxious to return to Johan-

William F. Jones writes from Spokane as follows to The Miner: Can
you give me any information about
1'iilisting in the Canadian army for
foreign or home service. Can 1 enlist
in Nelson?
There is no chance to enlist in Nelson for either home or foreign service.
There is no such a body as thc Canadian army, but the Dominion lias its
militia, which is organized on similar
lines to the militia of tbe United
States and which is called the
National guard. There Is no foreign
Canadian army. Canada has sent two
contingents and the Strathcona Horse
aggregating about 3,000 men to South
Africa since the war began. In Janu-
"ry anHher contingent will start for | Tuesday and
Nmitli Africa and this it was at flrst
thought would consist of 600 mounted
m*n, but later advioes state that it
will be-about 000. So Canada's con-
Iribnliontothe Imperial lorces will be
"bout 4,000 troops. Canada has no
foreign army. There is no chance to
enlist in the last contingent, which
sails next month, as the meD have all
been selected. Jones might if he
wished enlist in the Canadian in-
's'Hiy at Halifax cr Victoria. The
P'y in this corps is about 50 cents a
