Nelson,   British Columbia, Wednesday Evening,   October 24, 1900.
Eleventh Year
TAKEN FROM A
COUNTY JAIL
Mr. Ernest Mansfield Was This Morning \<Z��__\
Released Prom Prison, Where He Spent
a Week for Other People's Debts.
A $10,000 Syndicate Wants
to Take Half Interest in
a Damage Snit.
"Well I wish you would wait until
I finiBh my lunch, anyway," Bald Mr.
Ernest Mantield at 13:30 this morning
as he wns sitting in his cell at the
Provincial jail, eating his noonday
repast which came from the Hume
Hotel. This was iu answer to Chief
Turnkey Partridge, who informed
him that he waB free to leave the
quarters he has occupied for the past
week.
When he had finished his lunch and
lit his pipe, Mr. Mansfield asked:
"What if I refuse to go'.'"
���We will have to eject you for nonpayment of board," replied Mr. Partridge and then Mr. Mansfield prepared
to leave. A few minutes later he registered at the Hotel Hume, "Ernest
Mansfield, ller Majesty's Prison,"
It ia one week ago today, when
Mr. Sheriff Tuck called upon, and let
it be said, prevailed upon Mr. Ernest
Manslield to sample ller Majesty's hill
of fare In Nelson's jail. The enormous crime committed was that Mr.
Mansfield carried out the orders he
w��b cabled to do, and relied ou the
many rash promises cabled over to
him with regard to funds, but when
it came to the point were never fulfilled, and bo, for the debt of others,!
he was lodged under lock and key for
a period of seven days. He came out
today, and people that have known
him since his first coming, noticed a
resolute look upon his determined
face, there wus a firm step as he
wended his way to tlie Hume, where
everybody was glad to see him once
more breathing the air of freedom,
whilst not a   few were not  backward
in exclaiming it was "a d shame"
putting him in prison, whereupon one
said, "he ought to go back and rni&e
Cain," and another remarked, ���'he'll
raise something elso beside Cain, I'll
bet." However when Mr. Mansfield
had got through with the congratulations, and hand-shaking of his numerous friends, and they include nearly
everliody in Nelson, he went to his
oftice, the last place he was in, before
his Incarceration, and it was here a
Miner reporter caught him, amidst
comforts of every kind. Sevoral friends
were tasting of the choice wines and
cigars he keeps, and in one of the cosiest and best fitted offices in Hritish
Columbia, the newspaper man took
his seat on an easy chair and after
lighting a fragrant cigar commenced:
"Now Mr. Mansfield, 1 want a good
story, and should like your impres
slonB of prison life and the position of
affairs generally."
"Eirst and foremost then," answered Mr. Mansfled, "kindly rectify nn
error you madu when reporting me In
my cell. You evidently misunderstood
what 1 said, for you gave the Itnp'cs
mon that 1 considered ull Frenchmen
my enemies. Nothing could have been
wider of the murk and thut was the
last impression I wished to convey,
for 1 want to Bay thut some of the
best friends 1 have in this world are
Frenchmen, and there is nothing I
would not do for these. On the other
hand, one of my bitterest enemies Ib a
Frenchman, who has tiled for the lust
18 months to ruin me, but who has ig-
nominously failed to do so, and who
evon stated to a newspaper reporter of
a Nelson paper a few days ago, that
"he would ruin me." This In a fact
I assure you. Besides there uro hundreds of people In Nelson und Kuslo
cognizant of this fact, besides plenty
of people in France and England.
Bo 1 want you to rectify, and not lot
it for a moment ue Interred that my
remark alluded to frenchmen us a
people, although It cmtulnly did allude to some Frenchmen, and the public and my friendB will understand
this statement, so please make it pub-
the greatest favor you can
the Min-
lic.for it
do me."
"We certainly will do it
er man replied,
"Well the next thing t want to refer to is the courteous manner I have
heen treated during my Imprisonment, by the jail officials. These gentlemen have been the acme of kindness
and consideration to me, doing everything possible to make my enforced
stay as pleasant as possible for which
I offer  my sincerest, thanks."
"Will you leuve for England right
away."
"As soon as I fix up things in good
order 1 shall leuve for the object 1
have already told yon, and to clear
the stain that bus been put upon me
by the people sending me here."
���That, means you will get the .loiter
opened up '.'"
"Exactly. 1 have documents in my
possession, whieh when shown to uny
judge ill England, will give ine the
permission 1 shall demand from the
directors. 1 shull succeed in this, and
the people of Kuslo will leurn something thut will be to their benefit.
Work will go ahead up at the cunip I
assure you, and before long you will
hear of it."
Will you still act for this syndicate that has caused this degradation
to fall upon you'.'"
1 don't think so. 1 shall judge
better ns to my future actions, when
they interview me in London."
"It is said that you intend to sue
for damages.    Is this so.'."'
"Most assuredly. It iB my intention *o sue for ��10,000 damages, hut 1
shall be guided by my London solicitor, in whose hands I shall pluce.the
mutter."
"I understand that you were on the
point of forming your marble quarries und brick works into a company.
Will you settle this matter before
you go'.'"
"In the face of what has happened
it would be suicidal to attempt it. I
had made arrangements with my solicitors to get preparations made for a
charter, and prominent men of Nelson were to join me in forming the
company, but I consider the matter
now Indenliitely delayed, "
"Ib there any truth in the report
thut several Nelson people representing 810,000, have offered to udvanco
this sum to you in order to recover
damages, these people to till one hulf
of tho dumages you get'."'
"I do not euro to go into this,but as
you have mentioned it, 1 will sny
thut $10,000 has been offered me by
Nelson people,if I need it, fertile purpose you allude to. Hut I am not in
want of funds. I have plenty for all
purposes ut present, and If 1 want
more, I can get what I want in London."
"I believe you were offered a large
sum of money for Excelsior shares
yesterday. How do you account for
this offer being made, especially when
it has  been  reported   the  mine  was
abandoned?"
"I was offered a sum yesterday
that inn into the tens of thousands
of dollars for my shares, un offer that
wan exactly double that made me a
few weeks ago, when I wanted to
sell some. Why this offer should
come now, Is a mystery to me, especially when money has been bo scarce
up to now. , Hut I prefer to be an
Excelsior shareholder, so last night 1
cabled that I would not sell one share,
nnd Instructed the Hank of B.C., Lon-
expert examination, This news must
In my opinion have got to London,
but who conveyed* the news 1 do not
know, I certainly did not, and 1 don't
know of uny of my friends thut would
spend money for such a purpose. Still
the offer was made me, and I refused
it in a prison cell, where 1 wus confined for other people's debt."
'. "This seems a strange affair indeed," the reporter remarked.
tinge. Life is made up of
gs, and a few certainties,
one of them is the Joker is an exceedingly rich mine, and the closing down
of the same when considered from
several points of view, which I shull
point out to the proper authorities in
England, will not perhaps meet with
approval."
"Ho you arc certain you will obtain
the ends you wish'.'"
"Absolutely sure."
"It is suid thut your syndicate has
formed a very large company,   Is this
So?"
"I have had cables to. that effect
und I saw in a French newspaper,
that such u company baa been formed
and called the 'Mansfield Gold Mines
of Hritish Columbia Company, Ltd.,'
oaptlal 5,000,000 Cranes, 1,000,000 francs
of which is working eupital. In this
paper, it is   stated  that some  of the
mer-
with
leading financial houses and
chants of France are connected
it."
"You will huve a large interest in
this concern will you not'."'
"Yes, 1 guess so; my interest will
be something like 81.5,000 in Canadian money."
"Is Mr. Fleutot connected with this
company'.'"
"I don't think so. Can't tell till I
get to London."
"Does this company absorb all the
properties you are interested In'."'
"I don't think so. I believe it
absorbs about one-fifth of our properties. As I say 1 can't tell till 1 get to
London.''
"Was Mr. Fleutot scut out here by
the United Company'.'"
"Not as 1 um uwure of. Ho far as I
can judge he was Bent out by the
Klondyk Champs d'Or, Ltd., and 1
believe drew his salary of ��1,300 a
year  from the   Excelsior  Company.
"But isn't he now connected
with the L'nited Hold Fields Company?"
"1 believe so, how and why I don't
know; it s one of tne thingB 1 shall
fathom right down to the ground
lloor. You see 1 am deeply interested
with the future of the Excelsior nnd
United, and that is one of tlie reasons I would not sell a single Excelsior share 1 have in the custody of the
Hank of B. 0., London. No, not even
for five times the figure offered me
yesterday. 1 have got an idea into
my head that things are not as they
should be, and I will spend every cent
I am possessed of to fiud the truth in
this matter. I see by the French newspaper that the capital  of  the   L'nited
Company is  only   ��320,<     When   I
left London the capital of the Excel-
Bior Company was -300,000, so the
difference of the capita _ib .10,000, exactly the amount of the preference
shares. This I assure you !b very interesting to me."
With this remark the pioneer of
Camp Mansfield, said: "You will
please excuse me now, I'm terribly
busy," und amidst a delugo of papers
and clouds of fragrant smoke, the
newspaper man left him, a very busy
man indeed, with a glance in jiis eye
thut denoted thut he would go right
deep down into ull the nffalrs lu
which he is heavily financially interested.

Following is the text of the letter
addressed by Mr. 11. II. Cook to Sir
Wilfrid Laurier in the afternoon of
the hitter's appearance in Toronto:
���'Toronto, October 10, 1900,
"Bight Honorable Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Toronto:
"Dear Sir,���Recently 1 addressed a
letter to the Liberal electors of Canada, in which 1 charged that the present leaders of tbe Liberal party, yourself and your colleagues in the Cabinet, havo betrayed the principles of
our party, have been false to your
pledges and broken faith with the
people of Canada. In that letter I
said thut the record of our patty
while iu power under the leadership
of yourself and your colleagues, has
been one long sbumefiil story of promises unfulfilled and pledges broken, of
pXtruvagancc, jobbery and corruption.
:ind nf the most shameful betrayal
of every principle for which the
party has stood in the past. Kccog-
ni/.ing the seriousness of the charge I
made and realizing the responsibility
whloh any one must assume in (nuking such a charge against tlie leaders
of the party to which he himself belongs, 1 felt that 1 ought aot, in fairness tn you and   your   collengues   and
to the members of our party generally, to inuku a general charge of this
nature without giving specific In-
Stances und examples of the dishonesty and treason to principle of yourself
uml your colleagues; and this I did
us eleurly und distinctly us 1 wus able
to do.
"Up to   the   present,   neither   yon.
und'switchers who operated in West
Huron and llroekville under his direction, und whose' entrance into   tlie
Cabinet immediately after  the doing
of tbe gang became   kno.vu,   bud   all
the appearance of being payment for
service done���to make an attack upon
me, with the evident hope of being
able to divert public attention from
tlie charges I made. I might, did 1
care to do SO,challenge without fear a
comparison of my public record and
party service with tliat| of this colleague of yours; for a man who never
made or sought to make a dollar out
of politics need not hesitate to invite
sueh a comparison between himself
and one who has become wealthy by
making tlie most of his opportunities.
Hut permit me to say thut neither
my reputation as a man or a politician, nor the motive that may iniluenee me iu making them are of consequence iu matters of this kind. The
question is, are the charges I have
made true? If they are not, you owe
it to yourself, to your party and to
the country to deny them, deny them
specifically and give evidence in support of your denial. I suy you owe
this to the country ns well us to yourself and the party, for it will not beheld by any honorable man that the
country Is not vitally interested in
knowing whether the men entrusted
with its government are or are not
promise-breakers and traitors to principle.
"You are to speak tonight in this
city. May 1 ask yon t.i take your
audience into your confidence und say
whether or not the charges I have
made be true. Do not content yourself with glittering ami meaningless
generalities, but speak plainly so that
if 1 have accused you and your colleagues wrongly, the public, and par
tieularly the rank and tile of your
party, may know it.
"In order that you may the more
easily meet my charges and rcpply to
them, 1 repeat them as succinctly as
may be, ami lu the order I made
them."
Mr. Cook then repeats his previous
charges and goea on to  say:
"Here are seventeen distinct and
specific charges, not one of which you
eau cither deny or explain away, I invite yon to make the attempt tonight.
"tine of your followers bus directly,
and some of your organs have by inference suid that in making these
churges 1 am influenced by my failure
to Secure a Senatorship Replying to
this statement I have suid that I wus
offered a scat ill the Senate if I would
pay 810,000. You huve taken it upon
yourself to essay a denial to this. Of
my statement and your denial 1 shall
have something to say again. In the
meantime let me point out to you that
even if I were improperly Influenced
in making these charges, this would
not lessen their seriousness or be any
answer to them. Your offence is not
against mo. lint against the deccney-
loving people of Canada: against
every man who believes that public
men Bhould be truthful honest and
cleun.
"If you nre really anxious to know
why I have made these charges I may
tell you that I have tbe Warrant and
authority of no less a person than
yourself to do what I am doing. Perhaps" you will remember a public
meeting' in the town of Orillln in
1HU7. At the meeting you may remember that you used these words:
���I have paid some attention to this
campaign, ami I have noticed in one
of his speeches be (myself I, had Stated
Hint if the Laurier Government did
I wrong   he   would   have   to turn them
out. if we happen to make some mistakes, Mr. Cook will be there with
due notice, and due warrant to turn
us out.'
���You will see. sir. Hint there   Is nl
least oue humble member of the party
who Intends to keep bis promise.
"I am, sir, your   obedient   servant,
"II.   II.  COOK."

grace brought upon our party by the offering the returning Canadians any

At the opening of today's session of
the Supreme Court here the lirst of
the civil cases was started, McKay vs.
Philips. The ease Is one in which a
mineral claim was staked by both the
plaintiff nnd defendant apparently on
the same day, being tbe 88th day of
August, 18B0, Mr. W. A. Maedonald.
(J. C. appeared for the plaintiff, and
Mr. Ilannington for the defendant.
Apparently Steve McKay stuked the
claim on August 20, 1809, nnd recorded
it ns the Northern Light, while Philips stuked It on the same day and recorded it under the name of Surprise.
The claim Is situated on the middle
fork of St. Mary's River, adjoining
the Welcome claim. The entire morning session was taken up in obtaining
the evidence of the Plaintiff McKay,
and in giving evidence he told how
he had staked the claim, recorded it
and had done the required assessment
work. Tlie ease wus continued at the
afternoon session which opened ut 2
p. m.
Yesterday afternoon the tlrand
Jury made the following presentment:
The Hon. George   A.    Walkem, Judge
of the Supreme Court:
May it 1'leuBe Your Lordship,-The
tirund Jury desires to extend to Your
Lordship a cordial welcome upon your
return to Southeast Kootenay as tt
presiding judge at the autumn assizes, and to express the cordial wish
that you may be long spared to adorn
the bench ill your present health und
strength.
Adopting Your Lordship's suggestions the Grand Jury hns visited two
of the most Important institutions of
the district, the Provincial jail and
the General Public Hospital. At the
jail everything was found neat, clean
aud in a commendable condition.
The cells occupied by the prisoners
were orderly and well ventilated. The
Jurors would, however, direct attention to   a   few   particulars   in   which
they think  Improvement   might he
made: Opening from the. much frequented office they found the watch
cell or place of confinement for prisoners committed for capital offences
and awaiting the time for currying
out of their sentences. It would almost seem the refinement of cruelty to
expose these   unfortunate ones to   the
gaze.willing or unwilling, uf everyone
upon whatsoever purlsise he may vis
it the olliee of the prison. They
would therefore, recommend that the
wutch cell be removed to some othei
portion of the building and the space
thuS gained be utilized  for some more
pleasant and presentable purpose. The
grand jury also learns with some surprise that several escapes have been
mnde from tbe prison by means which
might be easily prevented, A tin pro-
jiit inn from building and wall might
apparently be so adjusted nt comparatively small cost ns to prevent Sleeping prisoners from utilizing the water
trough and coping for their purposes. The Urand Jury recommend
that a suitable uniform be provided
fur the warden uml guards at the
jail, as we believe It would Is' un Important element in the preservation
of  their authority  over those whom
I bev ei.nl ml und govern.
The Grand Jury desires also   to   express the   great gratification which it
received     upon   visiting   the   general
public hospital.    The   recent addition
to the building   bus increased   the accommodation    for   patients   but   ibey
found that   every bed  wus   tilled   and
patlentl   had   to    he   refused   admittance because of want of room for the
accommodation of further   occupunts.
[The   matron   and   her   assistants  are
! assidious and skillful iu the   perform-
' mice   uf   their   important    duties and
I their success li their highest recom
mendation. The Jurors have learned
with some satisfaction that the directors have it in mind further to Increase their accommodations for patients and believe that they nre doing
the community an Important service
when they recommend this benevolent
institution not only io the attention
and fostering care of the Oovernment
but also to the generous support of the
community amongst which it is situated and which it more immediately
concerns.
The Grand Jury cannot cloBe their
brief piesentmcnt without directing
attention to the condition of the Court
House at Nelson. It lacks almost
shamefully sufficient accommodation
for the purpose for which it is intended. As Your Lordship is aware there
nre no pioper rooms for the juries, all
being obliged to herd in one small
room which has ulso to accommodate
the law library, while it is not too
much to say that Your Lordship's
health has suffeied during the assizes
for want of ventilation, and all whose
duties have compelled them to bo
present within the ill ventilated court
room have been seriously inconvenienced and discomfited.
The Grand Jurors, therefore, desire
thut the strongest possible representation be made to the proper authorities
of the ncccBsity of a new and properly
constructed Court House in tho growing and flourishing City of Nelson.
All of which is respectfully submitted for consideration.
JOHN AYTON OlIISON,
Foreman.
The session of yesterday afteraoon

question, for such motions arc not usual in the House. That is the kind of
motion they put to the people at the
polls, and the people have a habit of
deciding it for themselves. On the 7th
of November the electors of Canuda
will spare Mr.Richardson und all other
members tbe trouble of voting eonfi
deuce or Don-conildence In the present
(lovernment. In the House motions
on policy or certain lines of action
frequently involve want of confidence
in the Government of the day and on
these members are expected to vote on
principle. That is what Mr. Richard
sun is supposed to do, and more cannot be demanded uf him.
The Grand .Itiry in connection with
the Fall Assizes has made its presentment, which will share tho fate of
al! previous presentments and be filed
away nt Victoria where no notice will
be taken of it. It is unfortunate that
once in at least a great many years,
I lu- Crown docs not take the advice it
asks ils (irand Jurors to give. The
presentments nre generally drawn up
with great cure and only after the
Jurors have personally looked into the
matters that they bring to the attention of the Crown. They are worthy
��� if every attention at the hands of the
authorities und the present presentment is no exception. The question
of proper accommodation in the Court
House here has been the subject of
complaint by many (irand Juries and
the constant growth of the City and
district is making the demands more
urgent every year. The poorest of
accommodation is now provided as
set forth in the presentment and it
is high time that something was done
to remedy the evil.
"Al showing how trade has grown
under the Liberal administration,"
Bays The Vancouver Province, "it is
interesting to note that whereas the
total value uf agricultural products
and animals and their products cx-
ported from Canada to Greut Britain
in 1890 was 842,074,887, it was in this
year -^ .'_."..".'.' I.'1 ��� and the year Isn't
over yet." Before we can attach the
signiticance to these figures that The
Province does it will be necessary to
Show that the "showing" is due to
Liberal administration. Anything
might occur under it; the iinportnnt
tiling to know is whut takes place be-
cause of it. The growth of exports to
'���nut Britain is not one of them, un
less we nre ulso   to   maintain   that ti
Liberal   administration   is   due tho
growth of United Stutes exports to
the same country, which show an in-
i.i.-iim' uf over 9135,000,000. And the
year is over. It was over on the 30th
uf .lime last. The Province does not
seem to be able to distinguish between
the ti-i ,il    year and the calendar year.
It. was Datura! that the acquittal of
t'ne child Chenoweth, accused of mur
der, Bhould have been attended wit!
demonstrations of satisfaction by tin
large crowd present nt the trial. Thi
child Is only eight years old, uml the
very opposite of precocious; its childish    upatlonl   tu   puss   the time In
court wuuld Indicate .thut it is slngu
larly Immature even  for thut uge.   It
was   Impossible,   therefore,   that   the
jury i Id hold it   fjg-ponsihle for the
serloui crime uf murder. The luw
rendered an Indictment necessary, but
it mercifully leaves to the jury to determine the degree of responsibility,
As it could not justly decide that
there wus any in this case acquittal
followed, and the verdict wns received
with greut cheering, Ho fur there
can In- nu objection   tu anything   in
this, lint how much of the sympathy
for the accused was due to the fuel
thut it was "only a Chinnmnn."
whose     life     wns   sueriliced'.'J   There
was nu evidence whatever to connect
the youthful prisoner with the crime
ami mi that score, too. u verdict of
".Nut Guilty" was rendered, but even
Jiud the down produced  an  army ol
facts that proved the boy's guilt, it is
safe tu say that in some quarters the
sympathy wuuld have been as great
und the cheering as loud. In his remarks to the jury Mr. Justice Walkem
aptly pointed out that just now,while
China was being mnde to answer for
the lives of Europeans who hud been
murdered in the Celestial Kinpire, it
was lirougbt home to us the necessity
of making full enquiries into the
murder of u Chinaman under the British Hag. All human life is sucred here
und the laws of tbe country make no
provision for clemency because the
victim of a crime is "only a Chinaman. " Chinamen are human beings
and ure so considered by the law.
It is too bud thut some people do not
take the law as their standard.
In bis address to tbe   electors of tho
Westminster district Mr. Dewdney
raises un interesting point in connection with the census. 'Flint is to be
taken next year, und it will probably
show that the portion of Canada west
if Lake Superior is entitled to a dozen
additional members. Are we to go
without that representation for the
next five years? Tbe Government
might huve expedited the census nnd
curried a redistribution measure before dissolution, but they preferred to
hasten the elections rather than risk
losing the advantage of the good
times. Therefore the injustice to
Western Canada thut is contemplated.
Mr. Dewdney promises if elected to
press for the additional members as
soon us the result of the census is
known, and not wait for the next
general election. It is not likely a
Liberal majority can be induced to
grant this, and to obtain justice for
the West it wil! be necessary to give
the Conservatives the control in the
next Houbc
In a long article discussing the projects for railway development in this
Province The Vancouver World says.
"We have the best reason for believing thai there is a perfect understanding between President Hill, of the
(Ireat Northern, und Messrs. Mackenzie and Mann, who claim that the
control of the charter of the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern Kuilway is
vested in them, as to the building of
the projected line in lower Fraser
Valley. Mr. Hill's system in the interior enters Nelson and Kaslo, and
thereby taps the trade of Kootenay
Lake,the Lardeau country and Whitewater Valley to Sandon. By the Red
Mountain Hailway the (ireat Northern competes at Kossland with the
Canadian I'aeilie. as it does at Nelson,
Sandon and at New Westminster.
Mr. Hill is most anxious to secure
control of the Victoria truflic to und
from the interior points we hnve named. He likewise desires an outlet in
British Columbia for Eastern Canada,
British and European freight and passengers, ns well us procuring a share
of east-bound traffic. The only plan
by whloh this can be nccomplished is
by utilising the churter of the Vancouver, Victoria .t Eastern Railway,
or such portions thereof us will serve
bis purposes. "

WlpnJPW Commercial Talks About
the Flood of Catalogues.
The following very sensible article
I. from the Winnipeg Commercial:
As is usual about this time   of   tho
, , ,],,, west is being Hooded just
yV with the catalogues and other
__ture of eastern departmental
._,. The retail traders of the west
baw always had a grievance against
ll_e stores for stepping into the held
��� .ins way at the season of the year
when there'is a little extra money in
olroulation and  the farmer has some
sh with which   to make  purohaae-
an. thBJ arc quite jUBti led In feeling
si they do about it. These departmental stores will sell only for cash,
o.ev never lift a hand to carry utiy-
' over u bad year, and they only
.,; business in this country When
��� know there will he'a little ready
0 be snapped up. The western
erchant is called upon to sup-
here with goods at till
,    supply   them on   credit
buds
the;
money
retail n
jilv I'onBiiniei'S
seasons,
with
ivlien there is no cash to pav
and to sometimes carry accounts for
years when hard times strike the
country, or when there has been some
Individual ease of misfortune, and to
the credit of the trade it may be said
that they never shrink from doing all
that their capital will allow of this
sort of thing, and sometimes a great
deal more, in spite of possible disastrous results to themselves. It does
teem, therefore, too had that when
there is some cash trade going these
eastern sharks should slip in and take
it awuv from local traders. And more
so because tncre is no good reason
whatever why they Bhould get the
business. They do not handle better
goods, nor do they offer better bargains when everything is taken into
consideration. They make no redress
if goods arc not what have been
ordered and. in the case of miscarriage
tn delivery.they do not hold themselves responsible. The goods have all
to be ordered from catalogues and
price lists are often made to appear
very superior to what they really arc.
The moral of all this is that western
consumers should keep their trade at
home.   The remedy rests with them.
ABOUT ARMY HORSES.
War is no hinder to the animals
employed In  its serivoe than to the
men who light its battles. If an observer of ,he battlefields has any pity
left tiftc ceing the niutiliated fragments of inen.it is sure to be brought
out by the sight of the wounded and
starving animals.
The scream oi' a horse in pain is said
to surpass the most agonizing shriek
that tlie human frame can produce.
In tlie wake of the armies in South
Africa are strewn the bodies of dead
and dying horses and oxen, and amid
this Horrible evidence of the carnage
of war stagger hundreds of animals
too badly phiyed out to be of tiny further use to the army. When the war
broke out many humane persons in
England besought the Qneen to  issue
orders that special attention lie paid
by the soldiers to killing wounded
animals and putting them out of
their misery as soon as possible.
Hut while humane treatment of
horses is always taetily enjoined upon soldiers, it was obvious that special orders would be unnecessary, and
in the heat of battle impossible to
carry out.
The worn-out horses and oxen of the
British army cannot be cared for, and
so they are turned loose to stray over
the veldt.
This is not a mercy, for the grass is
Bo scorched by the tierce sun, and so
trampled out, that nothing lint slow
starvation can overtake these poor animals.
Many times, when it can be done,
the veterinary surgeons with the army
kill these doomed aniiimls.
Men who full in bnttlo, or die of
disease, are buried, bur the exigencies
of war do not penult this in the case
of the dead animals, although it
would he better for the army if it
could he done; for the putrifying carcasses poison the air and breed the
camp diseases which feed upon the
soldiers.

Cost of Meilical Education in London,���According to Tlie Lancet the
minimum sum u .tudent must be prepared to flpciul in London during a
year on board and lodging is 4300,
He eun, however, save SI) per cent, of
thin expenditure by living with a fellow-student. He nuiHt be prepared to
spend at least 8M more iu bonks and

exception If he does not incur one or
twoj-xlra liabilities in the way of special tuition during his five years' career, lie will require another Still for
pocket money, and to these figures
must be added liis fees and the price
of his clothes. "We do not think
that in Londn any young man sliould
lie asked to attempt to maintain himself and pay the necessary fees and expenses of his medical education upon
a less sum thuu 8500 a year. If a student cannot command personally, or
by allowance from his parents 8"il)l>

that he is rash, in these exacting

(Irand Forks, Oct. 84.��� The t'.ranby
smelter, which blew In just two
months ago, has thus far shipped S3
carloads, or BOO tons, of matte to a
New York refinery. This matte is
estimated to be worth 8160 per ton.
This would give the value of the total
shipments to date as 8105,000, The
shnwinjj is considered good, especially as the second furnace blew in
only two weeks ago. The nominal
capacity of the smelter is 500 tons per
day. hut the fact that no llu_es are
required enable the plant to handle
ii'ii Ions per day. A few days ago the
inn for 24 hours amounted to624 tons,
a record-breaking figure. A matte
converting plant whlon will enable
I lie smelter to ship metallic copper
will he installed within    the next few
months,

Word comes from Kaslo tliat a deal
is on for the Mountain Con. group
hy which that property will, in all
probability, be turned over to London
capitalists nt a good figure. The
group consists of five claims, the
Mountain Con. and Coatio,whloh were
bonded from .1. A. Whittier last July.
ami the Granite Mountain,Silver Lake
and Silver Lake Falls, which were
located by W. W, Warner since that
time. Tlie formation in whloh tlie
claims are located is granite. They
are almost, on the divide between
the north fork of Carpenter Creek and
the south fork of Kaslo Creek, l'rop
ertics in this belt have not received
much attention until lately,and at the
time work was commenced on tlie
.Mountain Con. its prospects weie not
considered promising. Development
hns proved differently, however.
Shicc duly 20 the vein has been opened up by two tunnels, showing continuous shoot with from three to Is
inches of ore, the property being virtually a grass-roots payer.
Three ears of ore have been shipped
during the summer, the last one averaging :; IT ounces silver and .1. Hi per
cent lead. All work on the property
has been suspended pending tlie completion ,if the deal.
.Mr. Donnelly, of London,who is the
owner of the Donnelly group, near
that town,*iS reported to have sold the
property to a company which will
develop it extensively.
* *   *
The Ymir correspondent of the
Spokesman-Review says:
Il seems that the checkered career of
the Hall mines is at last over, aud it
will once more enter a period of pros
perity. The company owning this
mine and the smelter at Nelson was
reconstructed in London some months
ago and the statutory meeting of the
new company was recently held. In
his address the chairman said: "The
mine has been cleared of water and
the intermediate levels developed, the
following report being received by cable from the manager: 'No. 7 level,
west, the ore is 1:.' inches thick and
continues as rich as ever. No 7 level.
cast, the south lode or vein shows a
body of ore live feet wide. Tho ore is
good and will pay. No. 6 level, west,
shows a body of ore soven feet wide,
averaging 1.*, ounces of silver and I1,
per cent copper.' As to the smelter
wc have an enterprise ot an entirely
different nature, (if course the mine
is more or less of a speculation, as all
mines arc, but. a speculation in whloh
the chances appear to be greatly iu
favor of success. In the smelter we
have what may be looked upon, practically as a commercial enterprise; that
is to Bay, an enterprise to which we
can hn,k for a steady and consisted!
nt in n, which will not be dependent
upon chance. I may mention here
thai it is tlie intention of the present
hoard tn carry on the work of the
mine and the smelter   as two separate
Concern!     absolutely       separate       cun
cerns. This was nut tlie practice in
11 inpany. The result of the practice which we intend to carry nut will
be that when the mine becomes a pro
ducer tin- smelter will   purchaser   the
ine from the mil xactly In the same
��ay as it purchases oUBti ires from
outside miie-s. so  thai tile accounts of
the  two concerns  will not get mixed
np. Witli regard to the smelter itself
il, will be satisfactory to you to learn
that i in- prospects of business aie considerably greater than was anticipated at the time of   reconst ruction.     By
business I mean the prospect "f bual-
ness with regard to tbe smelting of
custom ores. It was doubtful at one
time whether the amount   of business
which would come to us  in the  Aral
year would be sutliciciit to employ our'
smelting works up to their full capacity,but it now appears that the proB'
peoti promise to be not only fully  up
lo the capacity of our smelter, but even
in excess: so much so that our manager lias advised us that in a very short
time it may be desirable   to   erect   an
additional furnace, That is a matte,
still nn.in consideration."
It may be safely stilted tlint the future prospects of the smelter at Nelson
are even more tosy than described   by.
Nelson  Daily  Miner,   Wednesday  Evening,   October  24   1900.
the chairman of the London hoard.
Mining in the district from which this
smelter draws its ores has received an
enormous impetus during the last 1:.'
months, and there are actually mines
which have to refrain from malting
immediate shipments because of the
incapacity of the local smelters to
handle the increased tonnage. The
shipments from the Slocan arc heavier than ever, while there is an ever-
Lncreaaing tonnage of concentrates being sent in from the mills in the
neighborhood, Thus the Ymir, Athabasca, Granite, Venus and Whitewater arc all sending out regular consignments of concentrates while the
Ymir, Queen Hess and a number of
mines iu the Slocan are all considered
as customers of the Hall Mines smelter, in addition to the large tonnage
received from the Kossland distiict.
The Arlington mine, at Erie, is shipping regularly a monthly output of
from 20U to iiuil tons, the oro averaging about 825 per toll. During August
the shipments amounted   to   335 tons,
realizing 85,750,

Henry Roy, of Kossland, one of the
directors of the Richelieu .Mining
Company now operating the Silver Hill
mine on Crawford May, wus in Nelson
last evening enroutc, to the mine aud
he confirmed the report which wus
published in The Miner a few day ago
that the McVeigh brothers had been
given the contract for the hauling of
the ore from the mine to the landing
at Crawford Hay. He also stated that
stables would he erected at both ends
of the trail at once. Shipping will be
commenced at the  completion  of   the
road.

Ymir, H. C, Oet. 24.���The Silver
Crown (iold Mining Company, which
has been formed in Spokane to operate
the Shiloh mine here, has decided to
commence mining on a larger scale
than heretofore. The present shaft,
which is down about til) feet, has demonstrated the existence of a good body
of ore, sufficient to warrant heavy expenditure in development. It has
therefore been determined to run a
f.yo-foot tunnel, which will start
from the Dundee wagon road and will
go about I ou feet to strike tlie vein.
From that point the tunnel will follow the vein to a point about 500 feet
below the present shaft. This tunnel
will he run by machine drills, nnd a
compressor plant is to be installed almost Immediately, The proximity of
the Shiloh proportj* to the town of
Ymir. which is overlooks at a distance
of half a mile, renders its successful
development a matter of great local
interest, as all the miners and employes can live here.
Work has been resumed on the
Fourth of duly, owned by the Broken
Hill Mining; and Development Company, and a force of men is at work
on the long tunnel which taps the
main shaft. It is the intention of the
management to ship ore from this
tunnel as soon ns a sufficient fall "of
snow makes raw-hiding possible.
Other companies are steadily prosecuting work. TI11 Simcoe Mining
and Development Company is still
driving the long crosscut tunnel which
is to tap the vein at a depth and
which is in 275 feet. The British
Lion syndicate is similarly driving a
crosscut on the Big Four property
and expects to strike the vein in about
30 feet. On the Kldorudo mine, own
ed by the Eldorado Mines, Limited, a
shaft is being sunk in some rich ore
near the mouth of the old tunnel.
Tie famous Flossie K. group is also
to be operated again. Two years ago
this property had a great boom by the
announcement of some  phenomenally
high assays. A shaft was sunk; (in
feet in some promising ore,but at that
depth ore and all traces of vein matter
were cut oil' by granite. A little prospecting baa since been done from the
bottom of the shaft, but so far the
faulted vein has not been located, tilling on the assumption that it is only
a fault which lias been encountered,
live of the heaviest stockholders of the
Salmon   Kiver and   Porcupine Mining
 ipany, which owns   the   property.
have decided upon doing a little more
extensive work in an effort to reach
the vein. It is understood that
enough money has been put up to do
50 feet of work.

Oold Hills Exploration and Developing I ompany, Toronto, now operating

There are some interesting facts in
connection with the Chenoweth murder ease that terminated at the Court
House yesterday. The crime was committed on the 33rd of May, the prisoner was arrested on the 23rd of duly
and acquitted on the 83rd of October.
It was 34 hours to a minute from the
time the jury was sworn in until it
gave   its verdict.
One result of the visit of tho Nelson
Operatic Society and the production
here of "The Mikado" is that the local musical talent has been aroused
from its lethargy into which it had
fallen since "The Pirates of Penzance" was produced. A movement
is now on foot to revive the Rossland
Operatic .Society and to produce "Pinafore" or some other opera. Arrangements are under way to hold a meeting of those who would like to take
part in the production of an opera and
to put one on at an early date. It is
believed that an opera so produced
will receive the hearty support of
the lovers of music of this eity.���Rossland Miner.
The Butte Miner of a few days ago
says of the company which appearB
here next Monday night: "A Breezy
rime" la on at Sutton's for a week
including a Saturday matinee. The
engagement began with a matinee
yesterday before a full house upstairs
and down. The plot is just a thread
on which to hang a lot of clever
vaudeville acts. There is plenty of
singing, most of whicli is good. The
gags are new and breezy. There is
a good element of wholesome fun
throughout that helps to while way
a couple of hours. The last act represents a pretty garden scene, at
night, brilliantly illuminated with
red electric lights, and in this act
many clever and fresh vaudeville turns
are done and lots of songs are tiuite
well rendered.
A mass meeting of the Conservative
party of Nelsou will be held at the
Opera House Friday evening. It is
expected that Mr. A. II. MaeNeill,
Conservative candidate for the Yale-
Kootenuy-Curiboo district will be
present and deliver the leading address of tlie evening. Mayor Uoodeve,
of Rosbland, will also be present and
other local politicians are expected to
be present and deliver addresses. Late
this afternoon there was a little doubt
as to whether Candidate MaeNeill
would be here, hut If he is present,
the opposition will be invited to attend, and will be given an opportunity to discuss their side of the question. A most interesting time and a
urge attendance are expected. This
will he the first meeting of this campaign where the candidates have come
together, and a warm time Is looked
for.

LIGHTING
Fifty Light Arc Dynamo
May   Be  Run  by
Steam.
The lighting of the streots of Nelsou
will be the main point of discussion
at a special meeting of the Hoard of
Pulhie Works to he held at H o'clock
this evening at the eity hall. At the
meeting of the Council on Monday
evening, the question of lighting the
city was raised, and it was thought
that to light it properly it would ro-
quiro lifty 2,000 c. p. lamps and a all-
light arc dynamo to give a sufficient
current, and it was intimated that the
dynamo sliould be run by steam. It
has been suggested to rent the engine
at the Nelson Saw and Planing mill
and place the dynamo there. Some of
tlie aldermen did not agree with this
proposition but the question will be
fully discussed this evening. It is not
yet known what expense the new
method of lighting the streets will
incur. It is evident that some such
proposition will havo to be carried
out,us it is not intended to place more
machinery at the present power bouse
on Cottonwood Creek.
It is understood that the power
company at Bonnington Falls is going
to place a proposition before the meeting this evening, for the express purpose of lighting the streets. It is
thought that their bid'will be much
lower than the expense the city
would be required to go to carry out
the method of lighting proposed.
