Chinese Offered to Permit British to
Occupy Pel Tang.
London, Oct. 1,���Dr. Morrison,writing to The Times from Pekin on September 84th, says:
"At the same moment the Chinese
offered to permit the British to occupy without opposition both Shall llai
Kwan and Tong Scban, they also
made overtures to the British to occupy Pel Tang. Although it was known
that these overtures weie supported
by the British authorities in Pekin,
they were discountenanced by Roar-
Admiral Bruce on the ground that
they would disturb tlie concert of admirals. Systematic Russian denunciation of the summer palace has resulted in stripping it of eveiy valuable article. Tbe toot has been packed and labelled and is now awaiting
transportation to Russia. On the second attempt the White Pagoda and
two adjoining temples were razed to
the ground."
of public records by the Transvaal
Government may be prohibited. But
It ought, to lie as easy for Mr. Km-
gor's friends to conceal them on neutral territory as it has been to bury
the big guns where they could not be
found. No reference has been made
in discussions here to the Trent affair,
yet it has a bearing on tbe case. Mason and Slidell had money and Btate
papers with them when they were
taken prisoners by Captain Wlkes,
The British Government insisted upon
thuir immediate release, and their
right to sail under a neutral Hag
with their state papers and treasure
was triumphantly vindicated. The
case will be even stronger if a man-of-
war be substituted for a packet ship."
Town of Kirin Surrenders to the
Russian Troops.
London. Oct. L���A dispatch to Tbe
Times from St. Petersburg confirms
the reports that the town of Kirin
surrendered to the Russians without a
shot, on prc-eiiiptory orders from
Prince Ching. The despatch says that
if similar orders shall be issued with
regard to Mukden, the Russian eon-
quest of Manchuria will be completed. According to the same authority,
no further reinforcements will he required by the Russian commanders in
the  Far East.
The Nelson Man to Be the
Nominee of the Labor
The labor convention to be held in
Nelson on Wednesday promises to be
attended by delegates from all portions of the Vale-Kootcnay-Cariboo
district. There seems now to be little
doubt that the convention will nominate a candidate, notwithstanding
the very strenuous efforts being made
by n few of the Nelson I'nion men to
prevent such action. One thing the
convention will not do, is to endorse
cither of tbe candidates now in tbe
field. The majority of the delegates
have been practically instructed to
this effect.
Of those who are mentioned aB candidates, James Wilks of Nelson is so'
far in the lead that the others are just
about out of the running. The delegates from the Rossland Miner's Union have been instructed for Mr.
Wilks and it is understood that other
delegations coine with tbe same instructions. Mr. Wilks will in all
liklihood be the candidates.

Baggage Only.
New Yo.':, Oct. 1.���In regard to
President Kruger and the leport that
he might carry Transvaal gold to Eu-
ropet, Mr. Isaac N. Ford says in his
cable letter to this morning's Tribune:
"The rumors that the British Foreign Otllcc has protested against the
removal of tbe archives of the Transvaal Government and the deportation
��f gold by a Dutch man-of-war, are
partially confirmed. No resistance Is
offered to Mr. Kruger's departure,
but the British Government is believed by authorities on international law
to be within its right in demanding
a guarantee that no state property of
the Transvaal is included In the baggage of Mr. Kruger and bis followers.
The BritlBh licet has made no attempt since the outbreak to prevent
���hlpinents of gold by tho Transvaal
Government from Oelagoa Bay and it
seems doubtful whether a German
vessel would now be stopped and bullion removed from it,   The  shipment

Industry,    The season in Behring Sea
lias been a complete failure, all of the
40 or more schooners having miserably
poor catches. Bad weather, rather
than a scarcity of scalB, is responsible
for the unfortunate situation. The
Icarus which left Es^uimaU on the
10th of duly last, experienced nothing
unusual during tlie long voyage. She
left the Sea, September 15, homeward
bound, and calling in on the way
down at Dutch Harbor, spoke the
schooner Aurora there. The Captain
had a sorry tale to tell. All of the
schooners had met with almoBt complete failure in tlieii attempts to take
snals. Owing to the prevalence of bad
weather, it was impossible to lower
the boats except on rare occasions.
The Aurora herself had only about 4(1
skins, "and," said the captain, "I
am going home, as it would lie only a
waste of monoy to the ownerB to remain out any longer." The Icarus
did not bring any news of detailed
catches as she spoke very few vessels,
but there is little likelihood that the
catches as reported by tbe Pheasant
will be much augmonted.

Extensive  Improvements to
the Hotel to Be Started
At Once.
Tlie work upon the improvements
of the Hotel Phair is to be started at
once. Ewart & Carrie, architects,
received instructions on Saturday
evening to commence at once to complete the plans. They were also given
instructions to call for tenders immediately ��>ii the completion of the
plans, which will probably be in less
than a week.
The intention is to excavate under
the present building, bring it to the
level of the street grade, and thus add
an extra story and make the building
four stories high. The entrance to
the lower floor will be at the north-
cast corner, where heavy double doors
will be placed with ail approach of
granite steps. The barroom will be
moved to this Boor and will contain
entirely new tidings. Tbe room will
he double the size of the one used at
present. Adjoining the barroom will
be a spacious billiard hull with two
card rooms attached. The lower story
will be lighted with both gas and
electricity and heated by steam.
Heavily Loaded Street Car Dashes

picked the baby out of the water and
gave it to its mother. I think it was
dead at the time. I did not know the

IM) feet longer than was expected.
The news of the strike was rumored
about Nelson Saturday afternoon, and
when Mr. B. R. Woakes was seen
this morning by a Miner representative,be stated that the story was true.
He also stated that the former owners in running tbe No. 2 tunnel bad
missed the newly found ore body.
Tbe new company had the men
straightening this tunnel and in this
way the strike was made.
"This practically means," said Mr,
Woakes, "that tbe two ore chutes,
which were known to exist in the
mine are continuous. This is of the
greatest importance, as there is a
much larger body of ore in the property than was ever expected.1'
It is not known how wide this ore
body is, as it extends past the sides
of the tuuuel. Its true width will not
be known until sloping Is commenced.
It is said that the new body of ore is
one of the largest bodies in the country.

One of the members of tbe firm of
the California Wine Company, who
has just returned from the Lardeau
country,in an interview with a Miner
man Saturday, said: " Business at
present is very quiet in the Lardean
district owing to the stopping of construction on the railroads. Prospectors and business men who have been
there for five or six yearn are becoming disheartened on account of the
fact that a great many of them have
reached their last by keeping up assessments, etc. When the railroad
started many did (xtra development
work on their property but now as
construction has Stopped some are disgusted and feel like throwing Up their
claims. On the other band a few have
profited by finding tine leads aud lots
of mineral.
"The Triune property is owned by

this claim he was offered 1100,000cash

owners can do no more than the afl-

has been working for two or three
years is now one of the largest silver

which is no doubt well known to the
public as the Beer Bros, of Nelson had

they located a claim whieh they believe is one of the richest in the
Kootenays. The claim is situated
about four miles from the west bank
of Kootenay River and live miles firm

tin* lead from tlie bed of the stream
where the water hail washed it bare
for about three or four hundred feet.
The lead is rich with gold and eon-

The Spokesman-Review says edi
torially: There is every indication
that the decision of the Mall Mines
smeller management at once to increase ihe capacity of the plant is but
one of a number of similar moves in
the smelting centers of the northwest.
The considerable eulargment of the
Northport. and Trail smelters is under
way, tbe Oranby smelter at Grand
Forks is to blow in it1- Becond furnace
in a few (lays, and it may not he long
before it commences the Construction
for further enlargement (,f its plant,
In this way it is probable that the
treatment capacity of these plants
will be fully doubled by early in the
new year.
Vet withall this tin1 outlook is that
then- will still he a shortage of facilities. Tbe output of the liritisli
American Corporations' mines is held
far below capacity because the yards
at the Northport smelter are 'tilled
with ore and the smelter is unable to
reduce tbe surplus as fast as it has
been accumulating. Almost the same
condition exists at Trail, The War
Eagle at Rossland is almost, if not
quite, ready to commence large ship*
mentH, but there is yet no sufficient
treat ment available. The (Jranby
smelter is reported to be running to
its capacity, almost entirely on its
own ore. and shipments to the Hall
Mines smelter an'   as large as cau    be
More than this, there are mines in
all the districts tributary to these
plants that are rapidly ncaring the
permanent shipping sta^e. Rowland's
output will havo a steady growth almost weekly, the Boundary will add
new shippers every little white, and
with the completion of the road to
Republic then' will be a large output
from   there.     Ainsworth    and   Nelson
districts  will   have    their    growing
quota demanding treatment, aud Kast
Kootenay will probably soon be de
mandlng largely increased facilities.
To offset these conditions there is
little doubt thai Ihe smelters will
come iu time. Already there arc rumors thai new plants are projected
at various points, and it is not probable that this opportunity will be
long overlooked hy capital. The enlargements contemplated by owners of
existing plants can not long sutlice.
These conditions are matters for
hearty congratulation. They mark
the uiosl solid and healthy movement
in the history of this northwestern
country. They demonstrate that the
| mining industry is on the solid basis
that must bring tin- country rapidly
forward among Ihe great mining regions of the world. They mark the

people to appoint a Commission to inquire into the working of all laws
bearing directly on the mining industry. The mi nets themselves should be
as anxious to have this promise implemented as tile mine owners, No one
wants strikes if they can be avoided,

is necessary to ward them oil'. AVe

���'We never promised free trade."
said Sir Wilfrid in his Sohmer Park
speech a few nights ago. "Five years
ago I declared that free trade was a
principle to be aimed al. but it was
impossible to adopt it." For what
Sir Wilfrid said live years ago it will
be belter to take the records. In a
speech at Winnipeg, according to the
revised and authorised report as published in The Toronto Globe, ihe chief
organ of the party, he said: "And
now 1 will ask you. what is the policy of the Liberal party? I refer to
freedom of trade, such as exists In
England, freedom of trade as it is
practised in (Ircat Britain, freedom
of trade as was in vogue at the time
of Cobdeii and Bright. We shall give
you free trade, and although it will
be a bard light, wc shall not give in
one inch or retrace one stop until we
shall have reached the goal, and that
goal is tlie same policy of free trade
as it exists iu England today."

An Englishman who knows Canada,
having lived In it the greater part of
the last eight years, has a letter in
The London Times on the Canadian
elections. Willi many other Englishmen he rejoiced when the Liberals
gained power in 1 800, partly because of
the Hritish desire to give tlie other
side a cliauee. partly because of his
sympathy as a free trader, and partly
fiom admiration of Sir Wilfrid Laurie himself. Hut it has been with dismay ho lias seen the Liberal party
throw an y their magnificent opportunity. They advocated free trade,
" hut. in spile of the Cohden medal,
their revenue tariff does not differ
much from the old protective tariff."
Nay. in some particulars we arc
worse off, lie amis, notably in respect to the dealings with the Standard (lil Company.
The correspondent  does   not   blame
the 1'rcnch-Canndians    for   their   lack
of enthusiasm ai the outbreak of '.he
South African war. but "it certainly
is unfortunate that the Government of
the moment did not more truly repre.

jeii.ainl doubly unfortunate that they
Bhould have seal so ant i - Hritish a
French-! anadian as Mr.Tarte as their
ri presentatlve to the Paris Exhibition." The writer just fails to tak
in tic exact situation. Other members "I ihe Government were probably
in,I over anxious to send Mr. Tarte.
That gentleman went to Paris as the
Canadian representative, nol bocause
of the Government's desire, but be-
cause lie insisted on going and bil
colleagues were afraid to say bin
nay. Mr. Tarte is a gentleman whi

Government, Bather than have th.
Government wrecked his colleagues
will submit to anything. Mr. Tarte
knows this and presumes upon it: he
is master, and lie acts his part.
Here   is  another   extract :   " While
the popular feeling that the   Liberals
have not truly represented ihe Loyalty
of ihe Dominion will certainly help t,
make    the   Conservative   victory   secure, the victory was   anitcipatcd he-
fore the war was begun.  'I ho Conservative programme may embrace protection, lull many free   traders will voti
for it rather than   for the same thing
in another  name; and   it is  at   leasl
doubtful    if    the   Conservative   part}
will enforce a Higher tariff   than   the
pre cut one. "   The   writer concludes
a   letter     that, shows     an     intimate
knowledge of   affairs   and   a   shrewd
llpprceiati f public sent ilnent. with
the  remark,1   "No   Government  ever

have failed so signally in the per-
funuiiuc-e of what tlicy promised,"

right to name him their leader, and

Hut they must not suppose that this
settles it beyond doubt or question.
The caucus proposes, but it is tbe
Lieutenant-Governor who disposes.
There will probably be a new Lieutenant-Governor before tho change is
made. We have seen what a Lieutenant-Governor appointed by a Liberal
Government may do. 'The new hand

On October 3rd of last year the Secretary for the Colonies cabled the
Dominion (lovernment that the War
OHiec would be glad of the tender of
a Canadian contingent. Mr. Tarte was
not willing, and as Mr. Tarte'6 wish
had lo prevail the Premier found it
necessary to furnish an excuse for not
complying with the desire of the Imperial authorities. He sent for the
correspondent of the otlicial organ,
The Toronto Globe, and gave a long
Interview for publication. Here is a
portion of it:
'There is no menace to Canada, and
although wc may be willing to contribute troops. I do not see how wo can
do so. Then, again, how could we
do so without Parliament granting us
the money'.' Wc simply could not il
anything. In other words, we should
have to summon Parliament. Th
Government of Canada is restricted
in its powes, It is responsible to Par
liltmcnt, and it can do very little
without the permission of Parliament.
There is no doubt as to tho attitude
of the Government on all questions
that mean menace to British interests,
but in this present case our limitations are very clearly defined, And so
it is that we have not offered a Canadian contingent to the Home authorities. The Militia Department duly
transmitted individual oilers to the
Imperial Government,   and   the reply
from Ihe War Office shows their attitude on Ihe quitttion. As to Canada's
furnishing a contingent, the Government has not discussed the question
for tiie reasons which I have stated.
reasons which. I think, must easily
he understood by every one who understands  tn institutional   law  on
the quest ion. "
It will he wil to keep this extract
in mind. The Liberals are saying
now that Ihe (lovernment did not re
fuse or even hesti.'ite; all they did was
to "carefully deliberate. " Their candidates will be saying the same lis the
campaign progresses.

justice and respect for the liberty and
rights of the church. You will thank,
in my name, the President of the Republic for what is being done.' When
I reported to Cardinal Rnmpolla (the
Papal Secretary of State) my conversation with the Pope, the Cardinal declared such statements were what he,
personally, believed and knew to be
true, and that 1 was at liberty to repeat them to the American people.
Furthermore, Cardinal Kumpolla said
that on no less than three different
occasions petitions bad been sent to
the Vatican In the name of the Fill
pino leaders asking that direct official
relations be opened between them and
tho Vatican. But the Vatican has al
ways refused to listen to such poti
tjons out of consideration for the
American Government."
Washington, D. C, Oct. 1.���The
War Department is in receipt of a ca
blegram from General Chaffee indicat
ing that he has received the instruc
tions to withrdaw most of the United
States troops from China and has pro
vided, in accordance with these instructions, for a Legation guard. The
despatch follows: "Received Sept
30, 1900, via Taku.���-Adjutant-General
Washington, D. C., Sept. '-".Ith, :ioth,
cabled fiom Tien Tsin, received your

all supplies to Tong Chow before water falls.    (Signed.) Chaffee."
Despatches 13 and 43 referred to by
General Chaffee were those containing his instructions to withdraw the
American troops from Pekin.
Chicago, Oct. 1.���A Bilver tooth
plate, to which two false Inoissors of
the upper jaw were wired, is the only
clew to the identity of a severed human head that was found tied in a
grain sack in Cedar Lake just across
tho Indiana state line. The head was
packed in quicklime before being
thrown into the lake, and tho features
were destroyed by the action of the
chemical. The only hope of getting a
clew to the mystery, is that the dentistry work may be recognized.
Provincial Health Officer Fagan has
determined that it will be well to
have all the Indians on tho reserve
vaccinated and arrangements to carry
out this decision are now being perfected.
