Winnipeg, Nov. 1.���The Canadian
Pacific hand department sales for the
month of October were 150,570.00

icres for 8107.1157.01. For the month
ol October 1900, the sales aggregated
18,858.89 acres for 802,749.54. Up to
the present date tho sales for 1901
j amounted to 540,848.42 aores for
Jl,321,002.11. Ttlia iB un increase over
the same period .'or the previous year,
the sales for the coiresponding months
being 382,18'.'. 18 aores, for 1,1)1(4159.62.
With regard to the question of in-
ciease in tho price of Canadian Pacific railway lands, Commissioner
(Irlllln states that there has been no
change ot policy on the part of the
company As the demand increases
in particular localities the prices are
! advanced in accordance with value.
Any other course would simply mean
that the best lands wonld fall into
the hands of speculators who would
expect to sell for a figure iu excess of
the increased price changed by he
railway company. The polioy of the
oompany in administering their lands
has always been to deal liberally with
the M'ltii'i's and as far as possible to
discourage speculation.

aeie. as wonld be expected, considering itH position bo far north, 50
degrees below zero having been the
coldest temperature experienced last
winter. Ho had seen very fiw pcoplo
from the Kootenays in that portion,
and considered that the Kootenay
afforded conldcrahly more opportunities to any man than the north.
There was plenty of rich quartz in tho
Atlln country, but the high freight,
lack of transportation generally, and
scarcity of wood and fuel, forbade its
becoming a good countiy for quartz
mining for a nnmbei of years yet to
oome. As to placer mining he considered that the country there was too
flat for hydraulic except in few places
nnd the ground for a dumpago was
therefore very limited. Water was
also very scaroe for suoh purposes.
In future the country there he believed would become a good one for the
miner, but it would be a long time
yet.
Mr. Bell Bald that from appearances
there would be less people winter at
Atlin this year than last. The summers were very pleasant the climate
at that season being delightful and
affording a long day to work. He
considers that the Kootenays during
the next few years will forge rapidly
ahead despite all drawbacks, the pro-
g ess made in opening the country up
dnring the last two years bad been
immense. Two years and a half ago
he had gone north as he thought the
Kootenays were in for a severe depression, but be had been surprised
at the progie.-i8 made in that time, and
was going to stay.
Mr. Bell first oame into the country
in 1809, having with a party of prospectors, some twenty in number, char-
ered the old steamer "49" at Fort
Cclyille to take a trip up to the llig
Bend country. The steamer was worked' up through the Little Dalles and
on to a place about twelve mi lea past
where Keveltsoke is, where it was
wrecked near a trading post called
Laporte, kept by a man named
Nichols. Nichols was the only white
man they saw after leaving Fort
Sheppard, then a Hudson's Bay post.
In lb89 Mr. Bell came to what is
now Nelson. Tbe only means of ingress from the wast was by the trail
tbe government had cnt that year
from Sproat's Landing along the
south bank of tbe Kootenay as far as
Forty-Nine creek, where it turned up
the valley of tbe oreek to Toad
mountain and over the mountain and
down to Nelson. In August of the
Bame year Mr. Bell was engaged by
Fred Hume and Bob Lemon who kept
a store in a tent, (the only other
structure being an "hotel" kept by
John F. Ward) to build a branch trail
from Nelson to oonneot at Forty Nine
creek wi*h the government trail,
whioh wonld do away with the steep
climb over Toad Mountain in bringing in supplies. This trail, which
this year was superseded by the new
wagon road, Mr. Bell put through.
He remained around Toad mountain
that year and the following summer
struck up the main lake landing at
where Kaslo is situated now, bnt
which at that time was inhabited by
one man In a small shack, with a tame
bear for a companion.

in tbe Held, saying that the fighting
burghers were determined to make
reprisals If the British continued
hanging and shooting rebels, and

A MADRID SENSATION.
Endoavor Being Made to Legitimatize
a Dancer's Son.
Madrid, Nov, 1.���Tbe name of
"Sackville" is figuring In strange investigations which are ocoupylng the
attention of the courts here. A local
lawyer has applied to tbe courts to
recognize the leg'titnaey of a client
who claims to be a son of a certain
''Lord Sackville," secretary of the
British legation at Madrid about the
year 1853. The claimant alleges that
th diplomatist manled a well known
Spanish dancer, Peppita Dnran, had
three daughters and a sou by the marriage, but the marriage register was
subsequently tampered with and the
name of ^Peppitu Duran's dancing
master, Antonio de la Oliva, was substituted for the original entry. The
examining magistrate appointed experts to examine the registrar and
the experts have confirmed the statement that the name of the original
husband, whatever it w��b, had been
scratched ont and the name of Oliva
had been substituted.
London, Nov. 1.���In connection
with the Madrid ricspatoh, refeiring
to "Lord Saokville," it is pointed
out that the present Lord Sackville,
the former minister of Great Britain
at Washington, although he was in
tbe diplomatic service prior to 1853,
was not attacked to the British legation at Madrid until 11 years after
tbat date. Moreover ne did not succeed to the title until 18H8.

NEW BRDGE BELOW NELSON
Among the chief improvements to
be immediately undertaken by the C.
P. B. is the construction of a bridge
across the Kootenay river four miles
below Nelson. The wooden strnotnre
there now was erected when the
Nelson-Robson railway was constructed and has stood the test of
stream and traffic since. The new
structure will bo of steel resting ou
stone piers. Work will be started on
the piers this year as they will have
to be built wniln the water is low,
The steel superstructure will be put
un in the spring.
The present bridge Is so built that
considerable curves exist on each side
of the river but with the new one tbis
will be done away with. In anticipation of the heavier traffic that will
be on the line after the aompletton of
the Columbia river bridRe a great part
of the work dona on the line has been
in tbe way of reducing curves. It will
then be possible to make faBter time
thun is made at present. The new
bridge will cost upwards of $40,000.
The first snow of the season came
yesterday morning. It was but a
flurry and melted as it fell. On the
main lake there was more than at
Nelson, where the fall lasted bnt a
couple of minutes.
SERIOUS FOR MISS STONE.
Constantinople, Nov. 1.-The case of
Mies Stone has again become more
serious. The brigands, it appears, are
still holding out for ��25,000 ransom
and it is feared that should they per-
sist in their demands, Miss Stone will
have to be sacrificed. Nevertheless the
negotiations are still proceeding.
Anxiety prevails at the United States
legation this evening where there has
been an active exchange of telegrams
between Seoretary Eddy and various
points. Mr. Eddy today had a long
conference with Sir Nicholas R.O'Con-
nor, the British ambassador here,who
is actively assisting in tbe efforts.to
bring about Miss Stone's release.
TURKISH NAVY ON STRIKE.
Paris, Nov. 1.���A despatch to the
Temps' from Constantinople says:
Thirty officers of the navy recently

an aide-de-camp with an installment
of money due them and the oflioers
desisted.

��'        	
London, Nov. 2.���Tho following is
the text of a dispatch received from
Lord Kitchener dated Pretoria, Nov.
1st: ''I have just heard of a severe
attactk made on tbe rear guard of Col.
BenBon's column, when about 20
miles north of Bethel, near Braoken-
laagte during a thick mist. Tbe
strength of tbo enemy is reported to
have been 1,000. They rushed two
guns with the rear guard, but it iB
uncertain whether tbey were above to
remove them, I fear onr casualties
were heavy. Col.Benson was wounded
but not severely. A'.relieving column
will reach him the morning."
Later Lord Kitchener telegraphs as
follows: Col. Barter who marched
from the constabulary line yesterday
reached Benson's column early this
morning (Friday) unopposed. He le
ports that Col. Benson died of his
wounds. The casualties are: Killed,
flol. Giiiness, Major F. B. Murray,
Captains, W. M. Lindsay and F. T.
Thorold, Lieutenants E. V. I,Brooke,
and R. E. Sheppard and Second
Lieutenant A. J. Oorlett; died of his
wounds, Captain Errie Lloyd,"
Lord Kitchener then gives the
names of thirteen officers who were
wounded,' i most of them severely, and
announces tbat T,4 non-commissioned
officers and men were killed and 100
wounded, addng that fonr of the latter
have sinoe died of thei�� wounds. The
despatch then says: "I assume that
the two guns have been recovered and
the enemy has withdrawn but I have
no further details. I deeply regret
the loss of Col. Benson and the
officers and men who feil with him.
lu Benson the service loses a most
gallant and capable officer,who invariably led his column with marked
success and judgment. The fighting
was at very olose quarters and maintained with great determination by
both sides. The enemy suffered
heavily but I have not yet received a
reliable estimate. The Boers retirtd
eaBt."
Col. Benson had been for some time
operating in the viclnty of Bethel
which is northeast of Standerton. He
�� rprised a Boer laager on October
22nd near Uichardsfontein, taking 37
prisoners. Three days later, according to Lord Kitohener's report at the
time, after a long night march the
commandoes under Grobelar and
Erasmus heavily attacked Benson's
rear guard and flanks at Yzirvarkfon
tein, but were easily dirven away
Whether this was the attack whioh
resulted so disastcronslv or whether
the Boers who had been repulsed
took advantage of mist to lenow tbe
attack is still unexplained. Lord
Kitchener does not give the date of
the Bethel engagement.

was seen yesterday by a Miner representative nnd asked if this statement
was correct as there had been some
comment on the subject. Mr. Hilliard
replied:
"It is impossible to give any opinion of what a plant of a given size

WHY LI TOOK SICK.
Russia   Seems   Sincere   About  Withdrawing From Manchuria,
London, Nov, 8.���The Standard
publishes the following from its
Shanghai correspondent: As a result
of the violent apposition of the viceroys to the Manoburian convention it
is said that the Empress Dowager
notified Li Hung Chang of her resolution to denounce it and tbat Li Hung
Chang on hearing this became ill.
Diplomatic circles in St. Petersburg
are inclined to believe tbe Russ'an assurances that there is nothing in the
Manchurian convention to which tbe
other powers oan reasonably object,
says tbe correspondent to tbe Times at
St. Petersburg. No doubts are enter
talned as io the sincerity of Russia's
desire to withdrawn from Manebnria
as quiculy ma  p-xwible  after ensuring
easily arrived at,   but it is impossible
to tell the cost of developing  a   given
amount of power at the   poworsite   at
St. AgneB   falls off hand, and   I think
it highly improbable that an   electric
plant   could   be put in operation   for
any such sum as 8150,000,    The members of the council have widely diverging ideas as   to the size ol   the   plant
wanted  and  they   run   from   one  of
1,000 h. p. to one of 5,000 h. p.     It is
difficult under  such  circumstances to
make an intelligent estimate.   If the
council is in earnest and really desires
to  know   what   tne   cost will be  let
them appoint competent electrical and
hydraulic  engineers, to inform   them
of the capacity of a plant   which  the
citv could utilize and direct   them  to
prepare   estimates   lor the same.     In
any   event   a  work of this  character
would perhaps occupy several months.
In the  meanwhile  tbe   city   requires
light   in tbe worst  way, and   shonld
seek to procure it at once.     It  seems
to me tbat   the   matter   of  providing
lights should not  have  been left  till
the last moment and should have been
locked after earlier in tbe year. Sure
ly the experience of past  winters was
sufficient   to have illustrated tho fact
that some action was necessary for the
ooming winter.     As  matters  are   at
present it seems to be a case   of   Hob-
son's choice."

PRODUCTION OF ORE
A prominent railway official stated
yesterday Unit the Canadian l'lieilie
railway was handling 60,000 tons of
oro a month in the Kootentiys and
Yale, and that from the be6t information obtainable it was certain that
this quantity would be doubled and
perhaps tripled in n year's time, in
other wolds that the tonnage in
a year handled by the Canadian Pa-
citic will be li'0,000 tons a month
and probably 160,000 tonn. If the
RosBland mines were in full opeatiou
the Canadian I'acillc would have an
ndditiona' 15,001) tons a month to its
credit hauled over its Columbia &
Western branch from Rossland to
Trail and this would bring tbe total
tonnage up to 7f>,()00 tons a month.
Were the Rossland mines In lull blast
they would be sending at leant 30,000
tons a month to Nortbport besides
that which would be sent to Trail and
this would bring the total up to 105,-
C'OO tons a month which is an enormous quantity of ore.
Besides this there are a large number of stamps dropping in Kootenay
und Yule, for instance, the Ymir has
Ml stamps, the Cariboo (Camp McKin-
ney) 20 stamps, the Yellowstone 10
stamps, the Onnndaga 10 stamps and
there are other mills, too numerous to
mention, which are reduoing.at a low
calculation,25,000 tons of ore a month.
This would give at the present time,if
tbe Rossland camp were in full operation, at least 130,000 tons of ore per
month. Tbe ouput is at least 100,000
tons as it is, and it is safe to say that
the total tonnage ot tbe Kootenays
and Yale this year counting, that
whioh is reduced iu stamp mills and
in smelters together, will be considerably over a million tons, and if tbe
expectations of the ollioials of tbe
Canadian I'acilio railway company are
renlizei' it will be considerably over
two million tons next year. It must
te remembered, too, tbat railway men
are not given to making optimistic
calculations. In matters relating to
trafllo they usually underestimate a
little in order to be on the safe side,
In making the forecast which they
have there are a great many factors in
the mining situation to justify it. It
is obvious in the gold-copper sections
that the mines have leached a stage of
development when they are far abead
of the smelter capacity. This is tbe
situation in tbe Rossland camp and in
the Boundary section. Ah a result of
thii condition the smelters are increasing tbeir capacity, and already
tbey see that it will be necessary to
make still further additions when
those now under way are completed.
Even then it is doubtful if the capacity will be any where near tbe requirements.
There i* the certainty, too, that the
smelters in tbe Kootenays and Yale
will always have a monopoly of the
rednction of the oies of the gold cop
per mines. This ia so because tbe ores
are usually of a comparatively low
grade and will, therefore, not stand
the long haul to the outside smelters
and leave any profit for tbe mine
owners. The expansion of smelter
plants and the addition of new plants
willgoon indefinitely till it has icached
the maximum or tne point where the
reducing capacity will be equal to
the producing capacity of the mines.
From the manner in which the oie
output has been enlarging it is im
possible to even hazard an estimate,
but that it will be very large
when the maximum is reached is
ouvious to all who are watching tbe
trend of mining events.
With these conditions attaining the
determination of the Mine Owners'
Association to compile and publish
the output of the mines is a wise
measure and one tbat will redound to
the interest of tbe country. A mining
section is juJgcd by its output and if
by neutal llgures it can be shown that
the Kootenays and Yal s are producing
over a million tons per annum and
this fact can be sent broadcast it will
do more to attract the attention of
capital to Billish Columbia than any
other means tnat could be adopted.
The work should be commenced at
once and every form of tonnage should
be taken in, including that reduced in
concentrators stamp mills and smelters. We believe the figures will bo
larger even than those which are
mentioned in tbe foregoing.   Tbat we
THE SEASON'S PROSPECTING
The snow begin, to whiten tbo tops
and side, of the mountains and so
servos notice on prospectors that the
season's search tor mineral ledges is
nearly over. Ihe number of prospectors iu tbe hills this year has not been
as large as usual. Those who have
been ic the field report that the result
of their work has benn satisfactory.
In the Nelson division there have
been a number of locations made but
tbe Bad near the Yellowstone mine of
a good sized area of free gold bearing
ground is among tho most important.
In East Kootonay some good ground
has been staked nnd this is particularly the ease with iron claims. Oil
has also been seaohed for and tho indications are strong. In Lardeau
there has iiuen more than ordinary
activity on account of the bnilding of
tbe ailroad into that section, and a
number of prospects have been taken
np. In Trail creek division tho prospecting has been confined almost exclusively to the country in the vicinity of Norway and St. Thomas mountains, and some promising free gold
locations have been made there as
well as of claims carry ing gold-coppei
values. In the Boundary oountry tbe
most important find made was of coal
and about 50,000 acres have been
taken up on one of the forks of the
Kettle rivei. In the Similkameen and
Osoyoos divisions perhaps there were
more prospecting this season than in
any of tbo others. There are some
very large deposits of gold-copper oro
and many lodges carrying free gold
besides large areas of coal lands in
these two divisions and stimulated by
the prospect of railway transportation
the ground has been staked in every
direction,
The results of the season's work on
the whole has been satisfactory, It
has been difficult during the past two
or three years to dispose of undevel
oped piospects and this has had the
effect of discouraging prospectors,
and as they could not readily dispose
of the only wares they had to sell
many sought new fields for then
energies. Dnring the present season
there has been a change for the better
in tbls respect and there has been
more dealing in mines during the past
summer than for a long time previous.
Where the prioe is not exorbitant
there is now no tiouble experienced in
selling a claim where it has any of
the earmarks of merit. If this state of
affairs continue tho number of prospectors iu the Held will increase till
they reaoh nearly the volume which
were roaming about tbe bills and
Valleys of tbe Kootenays and Y'ale in
the palmy days between 1804 and
18D7.
EDITORIAL NOTE?.
There is something grctesque in
the French naval demonstration
against Tuikey. Admiral Gaillard
started out with a squadron consist
ing of two armored crniscrs, two
second class crniscrs and one third
.-���Ihkm cruiser and crews aggregating
3,236 men for the purpose of punish,
ing the unspeakable Turk aud bring
ing him to time. The licet returned
to Toulon and Le Matin says the rea
son they came back was because the
squadron left harbor with only two
days' rations on board. The men
presumably became hungry and re
turned to Toulon for the purpose of
securing food. The adventure of this
fleet is remindful of Napoleon's
marching up a great big bill and
inarching down again. Perhaps tho
whole scheme was a big bluff and it
w as probably thought when the Sul
tan of Turkey heard that the mighty
Gaillard wan coming to punish him
that he would give in nnd settle with
the French at any price. There .is
no telling what might have happened,
however, had it not been that Admiral Gaillard and bis men became
hungry. Had they continued tne voy
age they might have become so
hungry tbat they would have eaten
the Kultitn had he fallen into their
hands when they arrived at Constanti
nople. It is perhaps'fortunate for
the good name of civilization that the
squadron turned back.

presiding.
The chairman, after stating that
the new oompany had been registered

The liquidator had the right to sell
the remaining shares and no doubt
more would soon be taken up. It was
the company's Intention to proceed
with Ihe development of the Poorman
mine at depth and for this puipose a
new compressor bad been purchased.
Tho shaft would be carried down 300
feet below the present workings and
levels run at each 100 feet. Tbis new
plant would be installed wtbin 40

pany could be nsed. Should tbe
development of the mine at depth
warrant it 40 stamps would be installed. There is several thousand
tons of ore in sight and the ends of
nil the levels were in ore when work
wsb left off and it only requires a
continuance of this ore to assure substantial profits. The office expenses
at London and in Nelson had been ent
down, A financial statement was
also submitted showing a good sum

A number of houses are being erected along the new wagon road between Nelson and Granite Siding.
C. S. V. Branch, provincial treasurer of the Snn Life Insurance company of Vancouver, was in town yesterday.
Yesterday being All Saints' day,
special services were held at the
Church of tbe Immaculate Conception
i n tbe ��� 7eni-.r.
Alex. Gibson, blacksmith, who had
his hand eeverey cut about three
weeks ago while shoeing ahorse is
able to resnrne work again. Fourteen
stitches were necessary to close the
wounds.
Tne R. M. R. band had its first
practice last night at tbe school bouse
under direction of Bondrauster Pollard. There were 15 in attendance.
The recruit class will be started next
Wednesday night.
A party of eight laborers, who have
worked all summer on tbe Nelson-
Robson railway, left yesterday via the
Crow's Nest route for Montreal
whence tbey wil sail on the Tunisian
for llnmburg, Germany.
Tomorrow at Emmanuel chnrch
Rev. Wm. Munroe will preach in the
evening on Worry. Tbe solo for tbe
evening will be Only Tired, by Miss
Ida Hanson. A cordial invitation Is
extended to everyone.
A grey eagle measuring 13 feet 4
inches from tip to tip was shot the
day before yesterday at Comaplix.
The man who shot it did not tbink it

the claw of the bird which is a marvel
of size.
On Hallowe'en boys took away the
wheels of tbe Hudson's Bay company's
wagon which bave not been fannd
yet. Some gates are still missing.
If these articles are not returned today the police will have no mercy on
tbe offenders it caught.
J. Meade, who was hurt at the
Silver King mine on Tbuisday night,
is progressing nicely. His escape from
serious injury waa almost miraculous.
The pick, striking with considerable
force tbrougn the mud which filled
the upper part of a missed hole, came
in contact with the detonator and exploded it. Tbis explosion threw the
mud up in bis face but without exploding the dynaimte stick below it.
If the dynamite had gone off as well
not only Meade but the thiee men
working beside him wonld probably
have been killed. Tbe sight of both
his eyes will be preserved.
The appointment of Capt. Fraoer to
be examiner nf masters and mates at
Nelson will be a great convenience to
shipping men on Kootenay lake particularly. Within the past six months
many men have gone to the coast to
take tbeir examinations at considerable expense and loss of time As the
certificates aie gocd only on (he inland waters of British Columbia, it is
only proper that the examinations
should be nt a port on those waters.
M. 3alliber's effort' in obtaining this
arrangement is much appreciated.
Capt. Fraser is a man of wide knowledge and of ability in his profession
and his appointment meet* nnanimous
aproval.
A large meeting of the members of
St. Andrews' Society was held in the

barge loaded with marble for the new
