IS IT PEACE OR WAR?
British Cabinet May Meet at Once and
Send Krtuer an Ultimatum���Excitement Has Abated-
London, Sept. 16.���Sunday will bean
anxious day tor Great Britain. The
i. [jlv of the Transvaal Goyernnient is
known lonight, bas been formulated,
nud is iu the handscf the British agent
nt Pretoria, Furthermore the wires i;t
the Foreign Ollleo are bt.sy wilh a long
dispatoh from the British Hiyli Com-
uiissioner in South Africa, Sir Alfred Milner, tu the Seoretary of Stir.e
for the Colonies, Mr. Jus Ohamber-
lnin, which is being rapidly repeated
tn lhe hitter's Birmingham home so
that tlie contents if the Boer reply
will probably rest tonight with Grea*
Britain's colonial secretary. Unless
South Africa is peopled with false
prophets thci Boers have cither evaded
or defied what practically amonntecl
to ;ui ultimatum from tlie British
Cab.tat. From llio lencv of their recent communications to Mr. Olinnibor-
luin the Beers could scarcely he expected to do otherwise, However, us
frequently pointed out in these de-
nputohes, this presumed Rclion upon
ttie pun of the Boers does not make
war a eeituiuty, thongh it does pluco
tlie British Cabinet in aposiiion where
it imiRt take sters so Bggresnve that
war or im ignominioussubmission will
be the only alternative remaining to
the Transvaal. This new serious phase
of the erisis also gravely increases tbe
probability 1 but the liners wonld take
limn 11ml diplomacy by thefbtelook and
oonflsoate the mines,tirre-t the Uitluml-
ers for high treuBcn and othe.'wise resent, while the British troops are in
mid-ocean, what they believe i" an
attempt to rub tbem of iheir inberi
in ire. If the course ��f dipb?maOj is
not fere-shortened the British Cabinet
will meet again and formulate specific demands far more sweeping than
the recent ones, These will be transmitted to President Kruger in the
shape of an ultimatum,
The long negotiations with tho Boera
which havo Rreatly occupied the energies of the Government nud many
columns in the papers have apparently
not in flam 1 il tho British pi opla* Among
ordinary classes the excitement seems
less acute than some weeks ago. A
significant instance of this is seen at
the Palace Music Hall which is packed
nightly with all sorts from the high-
esl und the lowest, singing t-onicu]
snii^s to the probable ooufnsion of President Kruger and (bn stamping out of
the Majuba Hill defeat were reoeived
with faint applause not approaching
to patriotic enthusiasm, but biograph
pictures of the Dieyfus trial brought
the audience to its fu,t yelling und
waving huts and handhold) lets and
women crying. Curiously enough
Maitre Labori received the linn's
share ol auplnnse while General Mercier and Ool. Jouast wero hissed as
Emperor William of Germany wns
lllsed over the Janneson raid incident
As the members cf the cabinet are
scattered throughout tho oountry it is
improbable that n counoil could be
gathered until Monday night at the
earliest, and three Is every reason to
beltevo Iho British JGoverumenl will
exhibit no undue haste in forcing Kruger's hand, for it is mora Important to
bave the reinforcements on the scene
of action than gain the gratitude of
the importunate UitlandorH who tor
weeks nave been crying tor lmmodl-
aggressive net ion The loglo of
suoh a policy must lie equally patent, to
President itrngor. It is hardly conceivable llml he will itwuit Ihe arrival
of the Brinish reinforcements before
taking the Initiative, If be displays
sn h hesitation he  will Btrengthon tpe
belief Unit at lhe very lust moment be
intends 10 back down, an impression
which hus many supporters among the
ultra conservatives. President Kroner's rutin red refusal of thn latest franchise demands has lost him many
friends In England ami tbe pro-Boer
party has shrunk to sniiill dimensions.
Tbn reported formal alliance between the Transvaal and tbe Orange
Free   State   bus also    done  much   In

confining Itself in passive nnreoognized
assistance as in the war of IHSd. Tho
sole lion of General Sir George Stewart to command tho troops meets with
universal approval, as also does the
announcement that, in the event of
War, Geu. Sir Iteeves  Duller will take
the supreme oommaud in South Africa. Both men are of meat cxpci'i.inoe,
bravery and foroefulness, The departure of Iroops from Southampton for

ROYAL NAVY WANTS.
Loudon, Sept. ul ���The British Admiralty is experiencing the same diffl-
cully as that encountered bv the
United States Navy Department last
year in finding good machinists for
ships at smaller salaries than paid by
the mercantile marine. The British
Navy lucks BOO of these men to man
vessels, To remedy their serious de-
licit, it is proposed to divide the oountry into tive marine engineering recruiting districts, each with an Admiralty agent, who will be a civil engineer in touch with the shipping centres uud receiving a substantial salary
and sn mui'li per capita for recruits.

RELIQIO-MANIA,
London, Sept. III.���The President of

Long is tlie latest victim of the church

censuring him Ivcaioo he voted against
the ; church discipline bill thereby
guiiiiii!, a reputation as n defender of
the Kitualists. It is likely he will resign soon us another seat is vucaut.
Tbe irony of this lies in the faot that
Mr, Loug IB an extremely low church

bill flimsy from a legal point of view.
But such explanation is powerless
against lhe "No Popery" cry of his
constituents.

Dreyfus Reported te Be  Oonneoted With
Russia���Many Believe it to
Be the Truth.
Berlin, Sept. 6.��� Though the Government bus takon pains to preserve
its equilibrium the result of the Dreyfns trial hus shocked tbe German people. Tbe bitter insult; implied by the
total disregard upou the part if the
Rennes court of tho Reichstag's declaration of Dreyfus's innocence, is
deeply felt- here. Owing to the peculiar relations with France the sentiments have not all found vent in thu
press and the Government organs have
done their best to smother them, bnt
in conversation tho real feelings of
popular indignation and almost contempt are universally and freely expressed. A small majority composed
of nuti-Seiiiit-s and some Agrarians
and conservatives more or less approved of the sentence. The correspondent
of the Associated Press hns interviewed a prominent official who said "the
Governmeut was not surprised at the
conviction of Drevfus
The Reiohstug's publication was
largely for the purpose of depriving
the world (rf the chance of saying
Dreyfns has again been sentenced by
Germany, We, postpone tbe publication until the last moment as we suspected it might hurt rather than benefit
tbe accused. Many well informed people believe Dreyfus had Russiajand not
Germany to deal with."

THE  USUAL DISTORTION.
circumstances might be regarded as
verv grave irregularities. As long ns
tbe expenditures arc marie on necessary public works or improvements, it
will not matter a great deal if wo borrow a few tnousands from the   future.
Moyie and Craobrook are both complaining that Fort Steele is getting
more thau its shine of road aud str_9t
expenditures, of course at their cost,
for if Fort Steelr- got only its due there
would he more left for the others.
This is only nne example of tbe jealousy that exists between those places.
Usually such jealousy is deprecated,
but it is a healthy sign. A place that
is stagnating is not hated as a rival by
other places. We gather from the
manifestations out the Crow's Xost
that Moyie, Cranbrook aud Fort Steele
are ail prospering. May tha prosperity
continue.
INSTANTLY  KILLED.
M i tier
in   the  Windermere Country
Struck by a Boulder.
The local organ of the Ministerialists
is to be congratulated. The Government it supports bus at length been
able to send us a Minister who has
ideas and views of his own, however
erromeous, and has also the courage
to state them. Well may tbe organ
give a succession of hysterical whoops,
and build up as usual a marvellous
structure of pure invention upon a
foundation of distorted facts.
We are informed by those present at
the interview that was two days ago
accorded a deputation of business men
by Mr. F. Carter-Cotton that only one
reporter was in the room, and he is so
well known to be thoroughly opposed
to the views held by the deputation
that to justify his professed principles
a garbled account of tbe interview was
essential. It would bo superfluous to
lay bare eaoh misstatement of (bis interview as given by the organ. We
will, however, take one example. Il
says: "He (Mr. Cotton) mentioned
the suggestion that the mine managers
should give the law a trial before they
condemned it.'' We now learn that
Mr. Cotton made no such suggestion,
for in the room were tbe representatives of several mines in tlie Nelson
district iu all of which the Eight-
Hour law has been 111 forco since the
1st of June, and Mr. Cotton never
once raised tbe point that tbe action
of tbe law has been untried. As a
matter of faoc Mr. Cotton had not one
word to say in defence of the obnoxious
law. He practically stated that had
tbe Government known how injurious
would be its enforcement the law
would never have been passed, but
that now that it was on tho statute-
book it was the Government's duty to
enforce it.
It was tho duty of the business   men
of Nelson to see   that Mr. Cotton   did
not leave the City witbtftit beiug properly  posted   as  tc  the   effect  of   the
Eight-Hour law, nnd the serious damage it is doing to the  interests of the
district.   Had no deputation waited on
the Minister  tho   organ   would  have
been the first   to  glory over the omission, ami-use it as   au arguin.'iil in favor  of the   Blight-Hour    law.     We
should have been   told   that all opposition to  it had ceased,   that the  mines
ill tho Slocan  wero  going  to immediately resume work, that   those  paying
union wages had found  tbat   tbo   men
did more   work  in   eight hours   than
they had before done in ten, that boilers made   more  steam,   that  engines
worked better, the   compressors   compressed more  air,   and   the   machines
drilled so fust with ouly un eight-hour
shift that it was seriously contemplat
ed by the uuion bossos (who havo   not
left tbe   country)   that-    the  hours of
work must be roduoed   to   six   in   th
day,	
Windermere, Sept. in.��� Joseph
Metts, an old Idaho miner, was m-
stnatly killed at the Silver Thread
mine, owned by the Fraser Chambers
Syndicate. Saturday evening about six
o'clock. Metis was gathering up some
tnols at the mouth of the tunnel when
n boulder came down the mountain
side striking him on tbe bend, death
was instantaneous, lt appears that
Metts saw the boulder coming and
ducked his bead but not for enough.
He and bis partner, Owen Jackson, came
into the Windermere camp early last
Spring nnd prospected on Number Two creek for two months or
more. Jackson returned to Spokane
some five weeks iigo shortly after
Metts went to work at tne Silver
Thread mine. Joe was very popular
among the boys in general through
out the district. The interment took
place on Monday thelltn instant at
tne Windermere cemetery,

History of the Progress of ��n Important
Faotor in tlie City's Prosperity���
��. 0- Davies Here.
Mr. E. 0. Duties,   general   manager
0f tlm Provincial  Building and   Loau
Assooiation is in the City, and is stunning ut tlie Hume.    In a  conversation
with a  representative of  The  Miner
lust evening Mr. Davies took occasion to
sny some very nice   things   respecting
the City and the best  of it all is that
it is triio, every word  of  it,    In   answer In nn enquiry Mr.".Davies replied :
"Oh, yes!    I  havo been hero before,
some  four  years  ago, but  was  prevented  doing   any   hnsinos   :n   conso
iim'iicu of there being no  land to bnild
upon,   At that time I saw Mr. Charles
A, Waterman   and  ho   fully   explained  linw matters stood and  I   made np
oiy mind to worry tho   local   Government and the Canadian Pa. ific authorities to iral  sonic lots ou the market.
1 interviewed tho late   General Superintendent Mr.    Abbott,   nnd also  Mr.
Marpole, the latter even at   that  time
lnid a good   word   to  sav  for Nelson,
aur!   1 am pleased to   know that he   is
staying by your City.    To my mind it
is a proof oi' his   sterling   ability   and
discernment.    After  considerable correspondence and   various   trips,   even
so far as Montreal,   lots  wera  put  on
the market, aud we   wero  enabled   to
enter the field.
"I can say this was done after very
iiiri'fnl scrutiny by our Toronto B nni.
but my convictions being strong as to
Nelson's futuro prospects all and every
objection was raised, and I am pronto say that we are interested in your
City to the extent of nearly $.0,000.
This is, and must have been, a factor
in youi progress Un the other band,
the satisfaction of our directors in onr
Nelson investments is unbounded
which will bo apparent to any business man when I say that all payments
as due have been made, our arrears today being under fifty dollars. So far
ns we are concerned, this is a record
breaker, and reflects the very greatest
ci'i'tlit upon onr representatives,
Messrs. Taylor & Hannington. They
have done well for us nnd we have as
a consequence asssisted them in their
labor in onr behalf by facilitating in
every possible way the completion of
limns and the paying over of mouey
willi tin- utmost despatch; in faot,
Fniiii of our leading shareholders,
whom I have met say iho Provincial
slii'iris A. 1. in the community for
slrai.lit dealing and di-spacb.
"It will be a source nf great s.itisf.io-
tiotl to me to report to my board the
progress apparent in every diriotion
in ymir town, evidencing the solid
clinraofer cf your citizens and their
faith in its future ''
In reply lo further questions Mr.
Davies staled they were doing a large
nnd satisfactory business in Hossland,
Trail, Knslo and other inland points.
(hi Wednesday last he met tbe people
nf Oranbrook and organized Ihore, At
present be has requests to visit Feruie,
Greenwood and other places, but being late iu the season milium may be
done tbis year. He, however, visits
Grand Finks, where already, some
tmisidetitble business isiu progress and
be looks for good results from that
place.
A remark made by Mr. Davies to the
eil'irrt Unit tlm Provincial wanted "No
frills" in their transactions, abont in
dioatis whal the citizens would expect
in Iheir mode of doing business, which
lima is ns clean am1, thorough us
in In made.
This institution hns undoubtedly
been a factor in the builidug up of our
city, and certainly bears a character
suoh as reflects the greatest credit upon
iis management,

r Vagrancy.
Provincial Policeman Forrester of
Robson ai'iived in the Citv last evening having in charge George McDonald
who has confessed to being oue of the
greatest prize fight impressarios in
the country. He says ho has trained
"Young" Griffo and that he is somewhat ot a scrapper himself. Ho tried
bis frjwess ou Mr. Forrester with the
result that he cau now see out of only
oue eye, while Mr. Forrester shows no
sign of having had his facial regularity interfered with. This dangerous
man McDonald was to have arrived in Nelson un Friday to
fight some one fur $.,000, but ho
missed the freight (rain and had
fo cancel the engagement. He came
H)i before Magistrate Crease last evening and so far failed to impress the
court with his importance as to be sentenced to three months for vagrancy.
This charge was preferred against him
on account of his propensity for separating various Robson citizens from
two bit pieces. He started in to kick
the stuffing ont of a Robson residence
but the owner thereof did not turn up
tu prefer a charge uf wilful damage
against the pugilistic gentleman
Nelson has many things to boast of
and among them is scenery. If any-
008, anywhere on earth could witness
a more magnificent sunset than that of
last evening he certainly has been singularly blessed. The gorgeous blending of colors in the western sky made
a picture tbat reproduced on canvas
would give any artist a reputation for
great exageration.

THE SPOKANE EXPOSITION.
Mr. W. H. Dowsing, who roturned
from Spokane yesterday says that the
committee who have charge of the
Spokane Exposition, are very anxious
to have a representative body of visitors from Nelson on the International
Day, October 10, The speoial car
will leave Nelson on October II and return on October 12, the fare being a
sinlge rate for the return journey. Arrangements hnve been made to accommodate visitors in private houses at
the uniform rate of 60 cents for a bedroom per diem so there will be no difficulty in finding proper accommodation. Mr. Dowsing has purchased a
house in'Spokane at the corner of
Glenwoou and Marietta avenues. His
family is now established and he will
divide his business hours between Nel-

NEWS   FROM   WINDERMERE.
Great Activity in Mining Circles--
Deals About to be Consnuiated.
Windermere, Sept. 12. ���(Special)���
The Eraser Chambers syndicate are
building a rawhide trail from the Silver Thread mine, and are putting in a
winter camp. It is the intention of
the superintendent to make regular
shipments commencing in the very
near future.
It is rumored that there is a deal
pending for the Holy Moses claim, adjoining the Red Line group on McDonald creek. This porperty is owned by James McKinlev and John Nor-
ris , both of Windermere, B. .C It is
understood that there is a fine showing
of ore on the sufrace. The Delos
copper mine on Boulder creek will be
worked throughout the winter.
It is rumored that Messrs. Hammond,
Osier and Nanton, of Toronto, will
take over the Delphine mino in the
very near future.
J. R. McLeod and partners have uncovered nn immense allowing of high
grade ore on the White Cat group on
Boulder creek. This property was
located during the season of 1898 by
Mr. McLeod A force of men are now ,
being worked under the personal di-
rectiun uf J. R. McLeod.
A large crowd of prospeotors came
over the trail from the Lardo-Dnncan
and Trout Lake country during the
past week, via Hnininil and Toby
creeks.
There is every reason to believe that
there will be an exceptionally late
fall this year, and that there is a good
two months prospecting to be had yet.
The weather is warmer now thau at
any time during the summer.
The Jnpiter Stat has a nice showing
of gray copper ore, situated on Boulder
creek near the Delos mine.
The Hall Miius will probably work
lhe Black Prince copper claim situated
on Boulder creek, all winter.
It is understood that a preliminary
survey has been run up Hammil creek
from Argenta and that the grade was
onlv one per cent.
Tho proposed railwav starting at tbe
Crow's Nest Pass or at about Wardner,
the probable smelter point for East
Kootenay, thence up the east side of
the Kootenay river crossing near the
Suooknmchnok, and along the west
side uf tho Culmnbia lakes uo the
Toby creek valley and down Hammil
creek and conuect with the Arrowhead
branch would undoubtedly open tbe
greatest mineral bearing country in
the Northwest. It wuuld tap the Fort
Steele, Skooknmchuok, Windermere,
Lardu-Duncan and Trout Lako mining
districts and would give railroad connection from the Crow's Nest Pass to
Bevelstoke thereby connecting the
two O, P. R. lines. '
The Windermere mining district offers
more inducements to the prospector
and capitalist than any other mining
cninp in the north west.
The Windermere Copper Mines.Lim-
ited, are working a force of men on
their oopper oreek properties. The
development work is under the. direction or T. J. Ryan, uf West Kootenay.
The Swansea will probably start
shipping iu the very near future.
Fred West has uncovered n nice
showing of high grade ore on the Cur-
tez group, situated on Horse Thief
creek immediately opposite tho Montezuma group.
John Burinan is developing the
Christina group on Boulder creek.
Steve Wilson has located a very
promising property on the north fork
of Toby creek.
F O. Lang, ore collector for the
Paris Exposition for the North East
Kootenay district, shipped some magnificent specimens of oro from the
Windermere miues. William Tayutou
a. pioneer ot the camp assisted Mr.
Laug.
As soon as the Windermere distriot
is tapped by n railroad, the Windermere
miues will surprise the miniug world.
R S. Gallop has uncovered au
unusual good showing of high grude
ore ou the Phoenix group, situated on
the head waters of Horse Thief creek.
John Bullman and W. J. V. Mooro
have located a group of very promising claims in the Upper Kootenay
River district, tributary to the Wiu-
dermore camp.

EXCHEQUER THE MINE
A Three-root V.inI of High  Grade Ore
On Toad Mountain���Will Be
Rapidly Developed.
Tbe Exchequer mine, situated on
Tonil imiuiitam bus about twenty toiiH
of first obiss ore with which tbey are
nbout to make the initial shipment
from thut property. Such nn notion
as this emaunting from a property that
heretofore has bee.' an expense, always
a I'imsliiul demand for more money to
push development work   is   worthy of
more than passing lot ice.
One of the first mines located ou
Toed mountain was the Exchequer. It
is adjoiuing the Athabasca property
on tbe west and the California on the
East, rtiid is probably the same vein.
The Exchequer was acquired by the
present owners in 1MI7, aud nfter
working il steadily for six mouths,
tin' property was about to be sold to
an English syndicate, and the work
wus shut down. No further work
was done until last full when it wus
again commenced.
The development as it now stands
consists of over 4U0 feet of tunnelling,
crosscuts, uurt 110 feet of an upraise
from the end of tbe tunnel No. 1 to
the surface, giving them as seen 1IC
feet of depth on the vein.
The vein at this depth is of the uui-
form width of three feet nnd is undoubtedly a truo fissure. At the foot of
the raise stoping has commenced,
and it is here the high grade ore in
encountered running $06 in gold ami il
ounces in silver per ton. It curries
a small per cent, of galena. The ore
is known as Franklinite, and in addition to the values mentioned above,
carries manganese, iron and zinc.
Mr. H. W. Mnssen, is now the su-
peirutendeutj and is pushing development as fast ns possible. Other shipments of ore will he made as fast ns it
can be mined. There is enough ore
in eight to warrant the statement that
regular shipments will  be made.
Another unexplored vein, is on the
Ezohequer claim which bus been prospected to the extent of a sixty loot
tunnel, mostly in ore. It certainly
appears sate to say tbat this property
will be one of the valuable ones in
t his region of rich mines. Mr. A. H.
Kelly, the former superientdent and
one of the principal owners fells elated
over the condition of the property.
��   #   *
Mr. Rammelmeyer, lhe superintendent of the Emily Edith miue, was in
Nelson last night. He says there are
over 50 men at work nt the mine,
elderly on the surface though a few are
working underground on contract.
* *   *
Ymir is coming np not slowly lint
with leaps and bounds. On the Fourth
of July claim one of the Broken rlill
Group the shaft is all in ore and in
No. 2 tunnel thero is over three feet of
the stuff that makes fortunes. Development work is proceeding, and before
long machinery will lie at worn on the
property.
* *   ���
Mr. Drewery passed through Nelson
yesterday on his way to Rosslnnd from
tin Lake Shore mine. A new seven-
drill compressor plant hns just been
installed there. Mr. Drewery speaks
very highly of the present state of the.
mine. Tbere are 6. meu at work there
now.
��       ��       ���
Messrs, Ness and Macdonald, returned ysterday from the Juno group,
their property, property on Morning
mountain, This property adjoins tbo
Venus mine aud it is considered by
snme experts to ho even more valuable
than tbe lntter property. Mr. Ness
brought back with him from Atlin
some interesting specimens of molybdenum which he says is considerably
more valuable than gold.
* ���   ��
There wero minors yesterday in Nel-
BOI1 nf a serious strike at the Jnsie
mine ut Rossland, It wns suid that
Mr. Carlisle had been asked to meet
the men mi behalf of the ownerrs but
that the meeting hnd no results. NU
official confirmation of the news conld
be obtained.
* .   *
A rather Important strike was made
on Friday ou tlm Condor, one of a
group of live claims situated about a
mile from Hall Siding, four ledges
are traceable on (he surface of these
claims aid a crosscut tunnel wus being
driven to tup them, when u ledge
hitherto unsuspected, was encountered, lt proved to be two feet in wdth,
und, though no assays rave as yet
been taken, lhe ore is evidently rich
as visible gold may bn seen freely bespattered J through the ledge. The
claims belong to Oaptain Duncan, Cap
tain Millourne and their associates.

Thomas Kane has Hied an adverse
against the Rainy Day and Haiuy Day

Horse and Clearwater creeks, about

The saw mill recently erected on the
Yellowowstone mine, near Salmo. is
going full blast and is giving every
satisfaction. The motivi power is water, supplied hy a temporary canvas
Hume. A flume ."i.UDO feet in length is
now under process of construction, and
it is intended, with the water derived
thereforin, lo run Ihe stamp-mill,
Compressor plant and saw mill. The
compressor is at present driven by
