Nelson,   British  Columbia, Thursday,   August 22,  1901
Eleventh  Year
LOOKING TO
OUR REFINERY
Idaho Lead Mlnos Will Seek
an Outlet ln British
Columbia.
Activity in Boundary Camp.
On Forty-Nine Crock.
Wining Notes.
It seems pretty well settled that
Nelson will be tho site for Iho lead
refinery to lie built in Hritish Columbia under bonus from tlie Canadian
Government, says the Spokesman-
Review The eonstiuction of. the
plant is looked forwaid to with much
interest hy lead miners in Northern
Idaho. It is likely to be of ns much
advantage to them as to tne lead
producers of Kootenay. It will give
tbem a means of having their ore
handled practically at their very
doors. As a result they will need to
pay freight only on the metal imiteal
of on the crude ore in shipping the
product east to market.
The arrangement under which this
will bo done is tho same as that by
whicli uanadian ore is treated in bond
in the United States. The ore will bo
sent out from the United Status in
bond to the reduction works in British Columbia.
After being refined, tho metal which
was in the oie can be brought back
into the United States without payment of duty. It ib immaterial where
the ore is re-entered. The oro might
be shipped over the line into Canada,
say, at Port Hill, Idaho.' The lead,
however, might be brought back into
the United States at lluffalo or Boston
01 New York.
This fact in itself is of considerable
importance. The recent-combines in
the United States railways have
praotloally killed competition between northwestern lines.- T_e>_ is
still, however, lively competition between the Great Northern and thc
Canadian Pacific for business out of
British Columbia. Tho American lead
miner who has metal to ship east
from Nelson will have the benefit of
rivalry between those two lines. The
Canadian Pacific touches direct at
Nelson. The Great Northern system
reaches, that thriving town both by
means of the Spokane Falls & Northern line, and also by the system of
steamers and railways diverging from
the main line of tho Great Northern
at Honrers Perry, Idaho.
The maximum charge for handling
the Americlan ore at tlie Canadian
plants under tho new arrangement is
estimated at about .20 a ton. That
is considerably under the charges of
the Amerioan Smelting & Refining
Company for handling high grade
lead ores.
The bonus of $5 per ton which is
offered by the Canadian Government
on lead produced at thc new rofihery
applies only to lead from Canadian
ores. Nevertheless it stems certain
that the refinery will be of .such size
that it can handle a good deal of ore
from the mines in northern Idaho
which are not doing business with tlie
American Smelting & Refining
Company.
The construction of n smelter by thc
Sullivan company to treat the ores
from its mine would have some i'i-
nuence on the situation. Senator
George Tinner of the Sullivan company, who returned lately >oni a trip
to the east in the interests of the
proposed plant, haB heen in conference
With Mann St. Mackenzie, principal
owners of the North Star In East
Kootenay. The building of a refinery
in connection with the proposed
smelter at the Sullivan has been in
consideration. Even though the refinery at the Sullivan smelter were
not built the completion of the smelter itself would influence the situation.
The proposed refinery at Nelson
would doubtless be enlarged so as to
handle the bullion from the Sullivan
smelter, The enlargement would
offer more opportunity for refining
bullion produced from American ores
at British Columbia points.
The newly completed line of the
<lreat Northern up Kootenay river
from Bonners Ferry, Idaho to Creston,
I!- C, where it connects with the
Kootenay Lake ooats.is another facior
in the situation. Ore can be sent by
tbe combined   rail   and   water  route
direct to Nelson, where It would be
���melted and refined. It would also
be easily poflsiblo to send tho ore
diii-ot hy icow up the river from lioii-
ni-i's 1''nny lo Nelson.
The whole mining Industry in
northern Idaho wonld be favorably
affected by this development. The
wet ore properties, of which there are
a number like the Continental and
Ihe Kuiistoii, in the country wonld be
most directly benefitted. The dry ore
mines, such as thc Weber, tho Keep
Cool and the Conjecture,would also be
benefitted, for there would bo a strong
demand foi dry ore to mix with tho
wet ores of the district.
Mr, A. T. Pollett, of Rossland, is
in the city en route for tho Ymir section, whither ho goes today for the
purpose of doing some assessment
work on properties which ho owns,
lie spent the last two weeks in tho
Norway mountain section whicli is in
Ihe northern portion of the Trail
Creek division. A number of properties ure being operated there but the
most promising is the Casoade, which
he declares has a spendid showing of
oro. The shnft is down 70 feet and is
in ore all the way with a five foot
showing in its bottom. Tho tunnel
which is being run to Intersect tho
shaft ut a depth of over 100 feet is nlso
in ore. The ore agerages 8'-~> to the
ton, an average sample taken by the
ore buyer for the Granby smelter from
tho dump giving tbat result. The
Rosaland-Iionanza, a property which
adjoins the Cascade, has been developed by a long tunnel and has an extensive und valuable shoot of ore.
Tne Homestake. another property in
that vicinity, is developing in a encouraging manner, and besides there
are other claims which promise to
make mines. A wagon road is to be
constructed from the Cascade to a point
on the Columbia and Western railway
at the Twenty Mile post This road
will he eight miles in length and will
cost nboiu SO,000, which sum has been
appropriated by the government. The
-vork of constructing the road will
be commenced on Monday next. As
soon as the road is completed the
intention of the Cascade and Possland-
Iionanza is to begin shipments.
Anthony J. McMillan and J. W.
Astley returned to town yesterday
from a visit to the SnowBhoe mine at
Phoenix, says tho Rossland Miner.
They report extensive forest fires raging throughout the Boundary country,
especially, in the neighborhood of
Phoenix and Greenwood. The Snow-
shoe staff was busy fighting fire for
several days last week but succeeded
in overcoming tho danger. Many of
the fires appear to originate near the
railway traok, and mining men and
others throughout the interior com-
piuin that tho smokestacks on the C.
P. B. locomotives, not being equipped
with spurn arresters, cause not a
little ot tho mischief. Mining operations at l'hoenix aro assuming large
proportions, and the shipments of Ore
io the Boundary district for 1001
have already exceeded those of Rossland for the same period.
Ml. McMillan is looking closely
into the question of smelting with a
view to treating the large bodies of
ore on the Suowsho e mine.
ABOUT TO OPEN
OTHER MILLS
HE MS COME
APTER THE GUP
Steel Magnates Will Have Ad
i     dltlonal Plant Running
Today.
Yesterday Marked by Many
Rumors Which Were Not
Confirmed.
W. Gallagher, a prospector, who
has heen working on hjs group of
claims on Forty Nine creek," was in
town yesterday. On one, tho Majestic
a tunnel has been run for 4a feet.
The ledge is of free milling gold and
bas Been stripped for a distance of HOO
feet. It is time feet wide, tho assays
running from $0 to 845. On the other
claims adjoining tbe Majestic, the
work done has principally been con-
lined to ground sluicing. The new
wagon road will pass about 1,000 feet
below the property and will greatly
assist in the oooning up of this
ground.
The steamer Internationa] yesterday
brought down two carloads of ore sent
fiom tbe Washington mine at Sandon,
of which John L. Pettier is manager.
This, the first shipment sent from
this mine, was consigned to the Nelson
smelter. It is probable that regular
shipments will be kept up, this adding another to the list of Sandon's
shipping mines. The International
also brought down a cousigment from
the Rambler.
The Rloowilabi Mining Company of
San Francisco, has taken up tbe bond
on tho Speculator group near Slocan
City, paying $40,000 to the vendors.
Tho group includes five claims upon
which there is a very good showing.
They adjoin the well known Arlington group which is being worked by
tho same company.
Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 21.���The steel
strike situation underwent no change
today. There was no extension of the
strike and the steel managers did not
attempt to start more mills. Late in
the day the fires wero lighten in tho
Demuler Tin Plato works at McKeesport, but the inaohiiiery was not
started and no attempt was made to
operate it. It is bclioved, however,
that tbo move is preliminary to a
start with non union men.
The managers of the company have
heen preparing for several days to reopen a number of their properties and
it is'tbought that they have decided
to act at once. Their Monesson plant
is moving ahead uninterruptedly with
full crews and their Crescent works
at Cleveland has about half the machinery in operation. There has heen
no break in the Carnegie group and
the mills that have been started with
non-union men since the strike began
are going ahead with about the same
force of men.
The leaders on either side were
busy all day, but at nightfall both
said there were no announcements to
make. On the street it was a day of
exciting I rumors, beginning with a
circumstantial story of a plot to destroy the Monongala Tin Plate works
and ending with a tale of the removal of the large plants of the United
States  Steel Corporation   to England.
Between the two, rumor again
settled the strike in several ways. At
headquarteis cold denial was given to
all the interesting stories. It was
another day of peace in all the strike
districts although tbe general probability of the trouble still holds good
at places where feeling runs high.
TERRIBLE COLLISION.
Chicago and Alton Flyer Dashes Into
a Standing Freight Train.
Jaokson, 111., Aug. 21.���In a head
on collision between the Chicago Sc
Alton westbound "hummer," and a
freight train at Pientico today, five
men were killed and six badly injured. None of the passengers were injured. The freight was on a siding
waiting for the llyer. It is supposed
the train gradually worked out over
tho switch unobserved by the crew
and when the passenger came along
at a high speed the impact was
terrific.
SCHLEY INQUIRY.
Washington, Aug. 21.���Tho Navy
Department this afternoon gave out
the latest official correspondence of
tho Schloy case. It conludes wilh a
letter from Acting- Secretary flackett
to Admiral Schley stating that '���the
Department, having constituted the
court, should not a', this stage of the
proceedings undertake ta hear and
determine questions that may arise
respecting the competency of the
members of the court. Suoh a proceeding would be irregular, all questions
of the nature being loft to the court
itself."
This is a declination of the request
made by Admiral Schley's counBel
that the attention of Admiral Howi*
son be called by the Department to
an alleged interview in which he said
the credit for the victory at Santiago
belonged to Admiral Sampson.
SITUATION UNClIANUED.
New York, Aug. 21.���It was denied
at the office of the United States Steel
Corporation today that Samuel Gom-
pers was to have a conference with J.
Pierpont Morgan looking to tbo ending of the steol strike. An official of
the coproration said the situation was
unchanged.
GETS FIFTEEN YEARS.
Martinez, Cal., Aug. 21.���Jack Winters, recently stole $330,000 in gold
bullion from tbe Selby Smelting
Works, was today sentence to 15 years
in tho Folsom penitentiary.
j Sir Thomas Lipton Arrives In
New York and Is Enthusiastically Greeted.
report cf First Race for Cup
Sailed Fifty Years Ago
Today. .
New York, Aug. 21.���Sir Thomas
Lipton, challengor for the America's
Uu]), arrived in this city at 8
o'clock this evening. He met with
the most Cordial American reception.
Tho steamship Teutonic, on which he
was a passenger, received ono continuous ovation from Sandy Hook to
her dock.
Sir Thomas and his party landed at
8 o'clock and were driven to the Waldorf Astoria for dinner. Tomorrow
morning he will take up his quarters
on the Erin, now anchored off Staple
ton. Included in the party of Sir
Thomas were Mr. George Lennox
Watson, designer of the Shamrock;
Hon. Charles Russell, who will represent the Royal Ulster Yacht Club on
tbe American cup defender; Mr, .1. II.
Hilliard, a prominent Clyde yachtsman ; Mr. C. O'Malley, Mr. John
Westwood, and W, S.   Duncan.
Sir Thomas comes to American for
his scond attempt to lift the oup,
cheerful and resolute. He has tbis
to say:
'I am delighted to be here again,
but hope it it, my last visit on snch a
quest. I think my new boat is by
long odds tbe fastest tbat bas ever
challenged for the cup and of course I
will be very disappointed if I do not
lift it.   The reception today delighted
Fifty years ago today the yacht
America won the America's Cup. The
Americans have held it just half a
century, i and it looks as if it were
going.to cross the ocoau. If it is it is
hoped that it will have another rest
of at least half a century.
Of the crew that sailed on the
America only one survives, Captain
Henry Hoffman, of New York. He
contributes an article on the first race
tu the August Metropolitan. The
following is an extract:
Then came tbe day of the race. It
was the 22nd of August, 1851���as
beautiful a day as ever dawned.
Boats of all sizes gathered around us
at the starting point. Among tbem I
remember the Arrow, Gypsy Queen,
Mona, Alarm, Wyvern, Aurora, and
Constance. You can get some idea of
tho variety of sizes of these boats'
when I tell you that the Aurora was
forty seven tons and the Constance
two hundred and eighteen. The rest
of them were somewhere betweon the
two iiguroB. When tho signal gun
popped tho wind blow veiy light Bnd
the little Aurora al. once jumped out
in thc lead. As a matter of fact,
America was one of tho very last to
get away from the starting point. In
a little while, however, the wind
freshenod. We crowded on every bit
of sail we could and commenced at
once to pick up. The bow of our boat
wus whittled as sharp as a knifeblade
ind out through thc w���ter like���well,
like the America, and only like her.
We had tho race .-clinched wlien wo
passed the statiou ship anchored halfway in the course. There we were
four minutes and six seconds ahead of
our nearest competitor.
ln order not to let the very slightest
hit of wind escape *us, we had our
sails laced to tbe masts and booms.
None of the other vessels had this advantage, and it really was a big
advantage.
Ono by one we passed tham all,
large boats and small ones, and when
we got the load they were strung out
behind us like a wake. There was
never a ship's company more proud
than we felt that day, and Captain
Hrown handled the America���I was
going to say to tbe Queens' taste, but
it wasn't much to the Qusen's taste
that time. Rut it is easy to understand that the man who had brought
tbe yacnt across the ocean to enter
the race was not the sort of man who
would lose any chance of winning it,
and that is all   it is necessary to say.
Over and over again it has Deen told
how the American schooner led all
that   fleet  at  the   finish,   and every
body who knows anything about the
America Cup probably knows that old
yarn about how Queeb Victoria heard
the news that tho American yacht
was coming in lirst. She is said to
have asked, "And what boat is
second?" The answer was, "There
lis no second, your majesty." I don't
know whether that over happened 01
not, but it is a pretty good story to
tell, if it isn't tolu too often. It la a
faot that there was no boat near
enough to ours whon we crossed the
Winning line to be considered a good
second, anyway.
Well, that's about the whole of the
story. There's no ufie telling about
the cheering and yelling nnd madness
on board when wc crossud the finishing line the winner. There was a
little balf-hoarted cheering from the
other craft, but it wasn't any too
loud. We didn't got any time allowance in the race, and we had to do
some very slick ialliug to get home u
handsome winner after getting oft so
badly. Tho race convinced us we
could wallop anything over there.
Soon after this race we tacklod the
Titanla in a race of eighty miles-
forty miles out, sailing bofore the
wind, and forty miles home. Tbe
America covered tho course in six
hours and twelve minutes, whilo lt
took Titania seven hours and three,
minutes. We won by fifty minutes.
We weren't promised any prize
money for winning the cup, but we
all got a tidy sum for it, the English
members of the racing crew included.
Of course the results of these races
were a big surprise to thu British, for
in those times, in spite of some experiences that ought to bave tanght them
better, tbe people over there were inclined to underrate American*. Tbey
could not undoratand how a oraft
built in so new ft country ton Id go over
there and bout their craok jathtt ont
of sight, lt was bard for them to get
over it, too, and there was tome criticism of tho America's peculiar construction, which was -lurrinjly torn-
pared to that of skimming dish. Tbe
Britishers were not up to the Id** ot
the centerDoard. They don't differ so
widely from us in yacht eonatruetioD
now as tbey - did then, and tht aup
racers built on both sides of the oeean
in recent years are pretty mueh ot th*
same class at present. The differences
between Shamrock I. and Columbia
and between Shamrock II. and Constitution or Independence are not as
marked as those between the America
and tbe British boats she raced
against.
The British have made some plucky
trials at recapturing the eup, bnt the
boats which have -raced for it sinoe
we won it have been no sucb boats at
the America. They don't build them
strong enough these times. They are
forever having accidents of one sort or
another. If it isn't a mast that's
broken it is something else. I don't
know that I have any great opinion
of the steel masts of today, anyhow.
Strength seems ' to be sacrificed to
lightness. Tbe boats that race for the
cup nowadays aro nothing more nor
less than toys���racing toys. Thev
haven't any accommodations such as
the America had. They arc meant
for the one purpose of racing, and
that is all.
The British aro just as unwiso in
this respect as wo are, and it is pretty
certain that whatever kind of an accident happens to one of these racing
craft built on either sido of tin-
Atlantic is liable to happen to one
built on tho other side. That was
seen plainly enough this very season.
Over here wo were still feeling sorry
for Sir Thomas Lipton because the
mast of his Shamrock II. went by the
board, nearly taking King Edward
VII. with it, when away goes Constitution's mast in just tbe same way���
not quite so bad a smash as tbat on
Shamrock II., but bad enough, and
altogether too bad whon it is remembered that what hos already happened
might happen again whon the two big
boats are doing their best under a
press of canavs that would test tho
strongest mast that could bo constructed.
The first Hritish yachtsman to challenge for the rocovory of the cup was
as determined as Sir Thomas Liptou.
for he came over two years in succession. He was .I. Ashbury, who challenged in 1870 and again in 1871, It
is a curious fact that of the two boats
which defended the cup in 1871 one
was named Columbia. Tne other was
the Sappho, and both boat Mr. Ash-
bury's Livonia. Everybody remembers, of course, that the Karl of Dun-
raven challenged for the cup twice,
bringing Valkyrin II.over in 1803 and
Valykriu III. in 1895. So far there
havo been eleven challenges, including

ANOTHER SMELTKB
The best develop' d gol l*coppci
of th i Kootenays and Vale an li thi
Trail creek division and the Bon
country. Tli<- gold-copper ledges are
usually large nnd carry medium 01
low grade ore, and, as a consequ i
have to he operated on 0 hi- scale
in order to yield a^profit, tu carrying
out this plan tbe expenditure e itailed
is large as big shaft i,expensive hoists,
compressor plants of coni Id irable Bize
and ii.any devices for the saving oi
labor and the economical handling
of ore have to be provided in order to
reduce the cost of extraction to tho
minimum. As the margin of proiit
is not large, in some instances, even
where the mining is carried on with
the utmost economy, some of the
richer companies have erected smelters
so as to make the profit usunJIy enjoyed by custom shelters on the ore
they handle, as in tbis way they gel
all that can be sa.-ed out of the ore,
indirect charges and all, which is considerable where the tonnage handled
is large. Tho LoRoi Mining Company
of Rossland, has a smelter of its own
ut Northport, that Is to Bay, the Btock
in the smelter company is owned by
the LeRol Mining Company, although
'the smeller is a separate aud distinct
coproration. This was necessary in
order to conform to the American
- laws, because the smeller Is located in
the United tSateb. The si;.,, nt the
smelter has been increa.-cd from lime
to time. The Granby Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Company owns
a hmelter at Grand KorUs, a:-d is so
well pleased with'the profit which it.
has heen to the octibparty tbat it. is
being doubled in illzK and as sunn as
the present addition in completed ia to
be still fnitiicr eni.irged. The British Columbia Copper Company, operating tbe Mother Lode mine in the
Headwood camp, owns a smelter at.
(ireenwooo and it. was announced a
few days since that the plant is to be
dou_|ed in size.
It is evident that these plants pay
the companies which operate them a
good proiit or they would not be run
continuously and be increased in size
from time to time.
As announced In yesterday's issue
the Montreal & Boston Cbpper Company, which lias for the past two
years beon developing tho Sunsel
group, near Dekdwood, until there In
.SO.lfOO tons of ore In sight above Ihe
Mil-foot level, intends to erect it 250-
ton smelter at Greenwood for the reduction of the output. Tbe Sunsel
group adjoins tbe Mother Lode and Is
practically an extension of the I
of the later. The ore is of comp .
tively low grade and in order that it

vA_.co_.uvi';-. should have it.
A mini is to he established in Canada and the (ii'cstion of where it
-hou Id he located is being discussed.
Ottawa and Vancouver seem to bo tbe
leading aspirants for the honor. The
mint by all means should be given
to Vancouver, because the bulk of the
gold produced in Canada comes from
British Columbia and from the Yukon
and it wonld be much handier for the
minors to have the mint in Vancouver
than in Ottawa. There is no good
reason why the mint should be located
in Ottawa,except that it is the seat of
the Federal government, and the desire of certain politicians to centralize
Dominion institutions as much ae possible in that city'. In an inteiivew
Hon. Dr. Mclnnes, who has been a
persistent' advocatn of a Canadian
mint for the past ten years aud who
was among tho first to prominently
bring the matter to the attention of
tlie. puli'lli', said: "
"Parliament bus authorized the establishment of a branch of the Royal
mint in Canada for the purpose of
minting Canadian gold coins, as well
as Hritish sovereigns. I think it is
much to be regretted, however, that
the Ottawa (Iovernment did not avail
itself of the power to establish a purely Canadian mint,instead of merely authorizing ri branch of the Hoyal Mint.
To Canada alone, of all depenenoies
and colonies of the Empire, was.given
the power to issue coinage. The Australian colonies had to make application for the establishment of
branches of the Royal Mint and these
have been in operation there for many
years, Of the three branches in Australia, the first was established about
fifty years ago. The Canadian Government issues a paper currouey, but
so far has not availed itself of the
power to issue its own coinage.
Directly and indirectly hundreds of
thousands of dollars are lost to Canada annually by the failure of tbe
Government to do this. And I have
always contended  that   even   from  a
entimenlal point of view Canada
should operate her own mint,and that
t!ii circulation of Canadian gold coin
would tend to strengthen the national
pirlt of the country.nnd would aot as
an oxcollent advertisement as well.
The mint, however, should be estab
Hshed in this Province, and not at
Ottawa,und an assav ollice at Dawson.
Thi re Is no particular reason why a
mint should be at the capital. It
should be located with a view to easy
access from the gold-producing dlB-
tricts, combined with the advantages
of a commercial distributing centre.
Thi United States government has established mints at Philadelphia, New
Orleans, Han Francisco and Caison
City, iiut none at Washington,
"The first effect of the establishing
of the mint should be the displacement of over twenty-live million dollar.'- of American gold now held in the
'.���nulls nf the Dominion Treasury and
Cunadain chartered banks, and the
substitution of au equal amount of
Canadian gold coin. I do not anticipate any very great material effect
otherwise��� thu amount of gold used
for general currency will probably
not he increased to any great extent."
the year 1001 Boundary was credited
with 2111,419 tons of ore while Boss
land bad a total for tbe year of
.16,123 tons, thus giving the Boundary
the lead by 290 tons. When the year
1901 opened the outlook wae a promising one and it seemed certain that
over a million tons of ore wonld be
mined in the Kootenays and Yale.
The Canadian Pacifio was handling
about 60,000 tons psr month in the
Boundary, in Slocan, Lardeau, Bast
Kootenay, and wbat is hauled from
the Rossland camp to Trail. Tbe
feeders of the Qreat Northern railway
were transporting abont 40,000 tons
per month. Most of this was hauled
over the Red Mountain railway to
Northport and the balance by its
other branches and steamers throughout the mining divisions. In addition
to this stamp mills, with some 25"
stamps dropping, were reducing
about 20,000 tons a month. ThiB
gave a total of at least 120,000 tons of
ore whicli was being taken from the
ground and reduced, per month. Had
this been kept up throughout the year
there would have been 1,440,000 tons
extracted during the year and the
Rossland camp wonld have been
credited with at least balf a million
tons, as the mines there had just been
gotten into condition by the addition
of large plants and extensive develop
ment to produce au increased tonnage.
Something over two months since
the trouble began at the Northport
smelter which led to the olosing down
of tbe plant, and this was followed
by the strike of tbe miners of the
leading mines of Rossland and the
output has fallen off there from 12,000
tons a week to a beggarly 250 or 300
tons. The result will be tnat tbe
total output of the mines of Kootenay
and Yale will fall somewhat short of
a million tons during the year, unless
the closed down mines at Rossland
should soon resume. It would have
been a banner year in point of production, but the fates ruled otherwise. Happily the labor troubles at
Rossland bave not so far affected any
of the other camps and tbis is a consoling feature of the situation. It is
boped, therefore, that the Rossland
strike will soon come to an end and
that we may have no further disturbances for a long time to come.

FIUNERAL OF C. BROTT.
Miner Who Met His  Death  At Silver
King Laid to Rest Here.
The funeral of the late Curtis Brott
was well arranged and curried out
yesterday afternoon. As no relative
of the deceased was present to attend
-the funeral tne Miners' Union took
charge of the arrangements
About 3 o'block" over one hundred
miners, being most of tho men from
the Silver King, which had closed
down for the day, and other miners
wbo happened to be in the city,
formed op in front of the Miners'
Union hall and marched to tho undertaking parlors of D. MoArthur Sr.
Co., from which place the funeral
started. It first proceeded to the Haptist church where a short service was
held, Bev. Mr. Morgan spoke for
about ten minutes, taking as his text
the verse, "Be ye aho ready." The
maroh was resumed to the cemetery.
At the grave, after the customary service had been read, the ofllcers and
men of the union each dropped a sprig
of evergreen in the grave, and the
Miners' Union service was read by
Mr. Wilks, secretary of tho union.
There were a quantity of flowers on
the grave,among them being a wreath
from Mrs. Gifford, wife of Captain
Giflord, manager of thc mine.
A telegram was sent by Captain
Gifford to the mayor of Bracebridge,
where the widow and five children of
deceased are living, asking him to in
form tbem of the fatality. Op to lusl
night no answer had been received, so
another message was sent.
, Captain Gilford walked down fiom
Ijhe mine to attend thc funeral, and
inarched in the procession, accompanied by Mr. Fred Hume.

Attraction at Opera House Last Night
Greatly Pleased Audience.
It is but seldom that Nelson is visited by a theatrical company whoso
productions merit a full measure of
praise, but the New York Theatre
Company who played to a crowded
liouse last night could certainly be
placed in thnt class. The whole audience thoroughly enjoyed the comedy
drama " Was She to Blame?'' which
was put on in a really excellent manner by the company. The play
abounds in comedy and startling situations and held the interest of everyone through ail the four acts as Diane,
the heroine, Miss Agues Douglas, had
a heavy part, but succeeded in winning the audience on her first appear
anoe, and by her very clever and artistic acting, was a prime favorite
beforo the curtain rang down on tbe
first act, and in the succeeding aot increased her hold on the audience.
Mr. George Olmi aB Loid Kurston,
"true in heart," made a very decided
impression, and his acting all through
the play was of a high order.
Mr. J. G. Stuttz, the author of the
play, took the part of Elam Washington Pancake, of Huckleberry County,
Vermont. The extremely natural and
clover manner in which he handled
the part, his witty sayings and the
faculty of always being on hand to
fool the villian, made him a prime
favorite with the audience.
Mr. Howard, as Pruno Severn,
"exacting and revengeful, " played the
villan in a manner which brought
hisses from all the small boys and a
great many big ones, which was the
Dost evidence that his work was well
dono.
Hester Severn, "the exacting
sister." played by Beatrice Gordon,
also had a part which came in for a
great deal of dislike of the audience,
and the part was played to perfection.
Aggie Marion, as Martha Ann Hop-
ton, gave a clever rendering of the
part of tho Vermont Auntie.
The othor members of the company
were capable, and the whole performance was notable for its naturalness
and the intensity of feeling which
every member displayed.
Mr. George Olmi possesses a very
fine baritone voice, and after the first
act rendered "The Holy City" in
splendid stye, and gave as an encore,
���'Daddy".
Tho audience thoroughly enjoyed
the performance last night and it is
safe to piedict that the opeia liouse
will he crowdad on each evening during tho engagement of tbe oompany.
The company will put on tonight
the original .10,000 play,"Jack's Lost
Paradise," which is one of the strongest sooiety plays ever produced.

A RAINBOW PART?.
Louis Blue, the Rosfland sawmill
and brewery proprietor is iu the city
and tells laughingly of a comical incident which occurred on a former
visit to this oity. He was out walking, he said, with Steve White and
they sauntered into White's place for
the purpose of purchasing a couple of
lemonades. Once inside they were in*
troudced to Louis Green aud Thomas
Gray. The barkeeper heard the introductions and thought they were joking him and remarked!
"It's a good josh, boys, and the
cigars are on me, for my name is
Brown."
"I gneBS I'll join in this," said a
stranger who was looking at the
pictures, "for my name is Red."
Thus it was that Blue, White,
Brown, Gray, Green and Red met. It
was suoh a rare combination of colors
that several small bottles were opened
before the party broke up. Mr. Blue
said in conclusion, "If we had only
arranged ourselves in a tableau people
would have taken us lor a rainbow."

Sir Thomas Lipton _ present challenge.
The old Amorica is still afloat yet,
and a handsome boat, too, as she
always was. She is owned, I believe,
by Paul Buttlor son of Gen. Benjamin
F. Butler. She was own<-d in England
for a time after her grent victory
there, and the British undertook to
rebuild her for the purposo of making
her stronger. They made a poor job
of it. Then she was sent over here
during the Civil War, and was engaged in running tbe blockade, being
captured during one of her trips
Eventually she became tho properly of
General Butler, and after he died
Paul Butler became thc owner. Gen-
eial Butler's grandson, Colonel Butler Ames, of-Lowell, Mass., is interested in the ownership and the boat
is enrol led in the deet of tbe New
York Yacht Club, of which Colonel
Ames is a member. The America was
here in New York when Str Thomas
Lipton sailed his first ' Shamrock
against Columbia tor tho cup in 18!ill
and she was among the many crafts to
be Been down the bay when the Sham
rock-Columbia races weie sailed. She
is practically a new boat,of course,for
(lener.il Butler had her rebuilt after
he became tlie owner, and I presume
she has had several overhaulings since.
General Butler was :proud of the
yacht, and it is said that at the time
of one of the earlier challenges from
England he was very anxious that the
America should be considered a candidate for tho honor of defending the
cup.

Strained Relations  Existing  Between
the Two Countries.
Paris, Aug. 21.���A high official of
the Foreign Office today informed the
correspondent of the Associated Press
that the exact si,nation at Constantinople is as follows:
The Sultan, at the last audience
which he granted to M. Costans, the
French ambassadoi, agreed to send
the latter ou the same, or the folio
iug day, a document giving complete
satisfaction to France regarding the
cairns of French citizens in the matter of the Quays, in accordance with
the terms arranged between the Sultan
and M. Constans verbally. Instead
of doing this, the Sultan waited until
yesterday, when he sent M. Constans
a document in which the terms differ
ed essentially from those arranged at
tho audience. Thereupon M. Constan
declined to negotiate any fuither, or
to hold any other communications
with the Porte, and referred the
mutter to the French Foreign Office.
His dispatch to that effeot arrived last
night.
As the matter stands relations between M. ConBtans and the Porte are
broken off, but France and Turkey
aro still in diplomatic relations
through the Turkish ambassador at
Paris. "If tho Sultan does not keep
tho promises which ho made st the
last audience," continued the informant of the corrcsponden of the Associated Press, "we will have to recall
Jl. Constans and Bend tne Ambassador
his passports. A solution one way or
ihe other is probable) within tlio next
two days."
Replying to a question, tbo Foreign
Office officials said: "No naval action
on tho part of France has yet been
decided upon. Tbo stories in the
papers to tho effeot that French warships are under orders to bo in readiness to procood to the Bosphoius have
no foundation in fact. Such a measure might, of course, become necessary, but that eventuality has not yet
heun considered by tbe French
government.

RUMORS RIFE
AT VANCOUVER
Continued from First Page.
Dterestlng reports have grown out of
this meeting. lt is stated positively
tbat every inch of right of-way between Vancouver and New Westmins
ter had been purchased by the Vancouver Northern Railway charter
holders, and that surveyors were now
on the ronto re-surveying the rond.
Clergue, of Sault. Sle. .Millie, is one
of the principal capitalists behind Ihe
scheme, but tbo Hill and Morgan interests aro also backing It. The
charter granting the right to build
tlie road to Dawson it, is said, will
never be taken advantage of. The
idea is to get Into Vancouver as
quickly as possitiie. One stockholder
stated tbat tho promoters would not
wait for the bridge but Hint a ferry
would be used across the Fraser and
that the road would be into Vancouver in less than a year.
The same informant gave tbe route
of the road us follows: Through
Penitentiary gulch ami along 11 j > -
gully by Bui-naby and Trout lakes,
entering Vancouvei- near the sugar
refinery, tho terminus being tlie site
now occupied by the Hasting Mills,
which would bo moved to make way
for tho terminal buildings. Besides
the right of way being all bought ill
tlie names of   citizens   not   interested
n the purchase, large blocks of land
had also been acquired in North Vancouver uy a Mr. Smith, known to represent tho Hill interests.

A FIREMAN'S CLOSE CALL.
"I stuck to my engine, although
every joint ached and every nerve was
racked with pain," writes C. W, Bellamy.a locomotive fireman, of Burlng-
ton, la., "I was weak and pale, without auy appetite and all run down,
As I was about to give up, I gut a
bottle of Electric Hitters and. after
taking it, I felt as well as I ever did
in my lite." Weak, sickly,tun down
people always gain new life, strength
and vigor frcm tbeir use. Try them.
