Eleventh  Year
Foreign   Ministers
trie  Situation
Oerman Emperor Refers to It
at the Opening of
��� Parliament.
London, Nov. 14.���A despatch to the
Standard from Shanghai says that
Sir Robert Hart, director of the Chinese Imperial Maritime customs, has
been appointed to arrange with the
Ministers in Pekin, the amount of indemnity to he paid by China and the
method of payment. An Imperial edict
has been issued appointing Li Hung
Chang generalissimo of the northern
army, vice Yung Lu.
Pekin, Nov. 13.���Via Shanghai,
Nov. 14.��� A protracted conference of
tho foreign Ministers was held today,
at the conclusion of which there was
a general expression of gratification
at the progress made toward reaching
a settlement. It was stated that
most of the minor points had been
disposed of and that an agreement
had beeu reached upon several essential questions. The meeting disclosed
fewer differences over impoitant
poiuts than had been expected,largely
due to the fact that the ministers
had received definite instructions
from their home Governments. Minister Conger said he was encouraged
to believe that propositions would he
ready to be submitted to the Chinese
plenipotentiaries at an enrlior date
than heretofore he hod hoped. The
Ministers will meet again tomorrow.
Reliable information from Nieu
Chwang indicates a disturbed condition of affairs there. Robbers and
pirates are carrying the region and
paralysing the commerce. The Russians are making no effort to suppress the troubles except along the
railway. The weather is becoming
colder and nightly frosts, but the
supply of fuel Is good and the troops
are not suffering.
Berlin, Nov. 14.���Tho Reichstag
received today the Speech from the
Throne. It dwelt at considerable
length on the events in China, which
have excited such deep emotion among
civilized people saying: The fanatical hate and dark superstition inbued
hy the unscrupulous advisers of the
Court have driven misguided masses
of Chinese to acts of atrocity against
the outposts of western civilization
aud Chrlstain worship,dwelling peacefully in their midst, Tho foreigners
at the capital saw themselves threatened, life ant limb. These things of
horror united the civilized community
where otherwise there was a divergence. All nations against which
tho unparalled onslaught was directed drew closer. Their sons fought
with one mind, shoulder to shoulder.
Even as yonder standards float side hy
side, so tho tlovornmoiits show themselves in council united with the solo
wish of restoring speedily an orderly
state of things, and after punishment
of the chief culprits avert a recurrence in the future of such a disturbance on tho face of tlie world." In
announcing that the relations of Gcr-
many with all the powers are good,
the speech recalls HiB Majesty'b sorrow at tho assassination of King
Humbert of Italy,Baying "lie was my
ally and dear friend, who fell a victim to damnable outrage."
The Bpeech thon proceeds: "I would
sooner have consulted the Reischstag
on the measures In China, but for tho
necessity of prompt action nnd the
dlfllculty of furnishing reliable information. Whenever the ReischBtag
eould form decisions or estimate the
expenditure required the Oovernment
felt confident that the representatives
would not refuse their subsequent
sanction to tho necessary expenditure."
Turning to domestic matters Ills
Majesty said that in consequence of
tho natural growth of the revenue and
the increased tnxation voted last session, more funds wore available in
almost every branch of life In the
Emplro, especially for measures for
the benefit of workers and for the defence of the country. A cuBtoms tariff, be added, would  probably be laid
before the Bundesrath during the
present session. The ceremony of
opening the Reischstag occurred at
noon in the Knight's hall of the
SohloBS in the presence of the Emperor. At the, conclusion of the speech
from the Throne Emperor William
was warmly cheered nnd Count Von
Buelow, the Imperial Chancellor,
formally declared the session open.
Berlin, Nov. 14.���The Foreign Olliee
publishes reports from the German
legation at Pekin dated from May 21
to August ~4. The late Baron Von
Ketteler's despatches described exhaustively the progress of the Boxer
movement demonstrating tho guilt of
tho Chinese Government. Secretary
of the Legation, Von Buelow, dealing
with the disturbances at Pekin from
June IS to June 30 says that with the
appointment of Prince Tuan to the
presidency of Tsung Li Yamen, notification of which was given June 10 to
the foreign ministers,the Chinese Government, "let fall the mask." He
adds that it was equivalent to a declaration of war. A Dragoman of the
German legation narrates in these reports the murder of Baron Von Kette-
ler. He says it was a carefully planned act of vengeance upon the part of
certain high representatives of the
Chinese Government whom Von Ket-
teler had repeatedly accused, even to
their faces, of double dealing.
Vienna, Nov. 14.���The commander
of the Austrian squadron at Taku ca
hies that an Austrian detachment of
troops left Pekin, Nov. 12,with an expedition to the northwest, which was
expected to be gone three weeks. A
company of Austrian blue jackets, it
i8 added, with 10 German cavalry
men, recently engaged a force of Hox
ers six miles west of Pekin and defeated the Chinese. Three of the lat-
tcr's leaders were shot.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 14.���The Ros-
siya declares that the Chinese rebels
"threaten to ruin the Russian Empire. If the Powers," it ;s added,
"continue their present policy, China
will be unable to pay a money indemnity and consequently will result ultimately in the partition of China in
spite of assurances of the Powers to
the coutarry. The Chinese, indignant,
wiil emigrate to Siberia and the yellow horde will again precipitate towards European Russia, which will
sink to tlie position of a second rank
The Novae Vreya finds the situation worse and says the Powers must
aet independently. It adds that Russia and Japan will dictate the future
of East Asia.
llong Kong, Nov.14.��� The bodies of
twenty persons who were killed 'by
tho collapse of housos on the shore, in
tlio typhoon which stiuck Hong Kong
last Friday night have been recovered. More than fifty bodies have beon
taken from the harbor, and the remains of many victims are still to be
found. Tho damage to property and
crops is enormous.

New York, Nov. 14.���Michael Davitt, M. P., has cabled from Paris to
the Journal aud Advertiser lu part as
"It ifl a nniquo testimony to the
grent individuality of President Kruger that his voyage to Europe 1b
watched with more interest by the
Continental press than is the progress
of the war in China. Al, speculation
agrees upon two pointB, there are to
be important revelations. In one Informed quarter it is usserted that Mr.
Chamberlain will soon have an opportunity of reading private letters found
In Juh6nn6sburg that will place tho
active complicity of the Colonial Oflice
In tho JaraicBon Raid beyond further
dispute. I'roof will also be adducod
that Kruger purchased the ammunition for the Hoer armies from Birmingham firms In which the family

Perdue Returns to Nelson From

"Billie" Perdue, who is well
known horo, and who leftj Nelson last
June returned to the city list evening
from Dawson City. Ho apparently
enjoyed his trip to the far north exceedingly and although that was his

possibilities of that country this time
than during hi. former trips. Ills pilgrimage to these .this time was occupied by taking In a large number of
cattle over the Dalton trail. He spent
a considerable tlnio; on the trail but

the little time that he was with them
they were doing well. He left Daw-
sou City on the lBtb of last month nnd

Impressed I cannot iltiderstand. The
people who have gone In thorn are
bringing  out more money   this  year
thau they did last. And next year
more wealth will ho brought down
than ever before. The reason for next
year being the greatest one f jr the
Klondike is that more machinery and
othci facilities for working the properties have now been installed. Although not exceedingly great, strikes
are beiug made evoiy day and the
present prospects are that tho wealth
there will last for several years to
After spending a few days among
friends here Mr. Perdue will leave for
Spokane and other cities of Western
United States.
Hon. Mr. Daly Says They Aro Responsible for Sifton's Election.
THon. T. Mayno Daly returned to
Rossland on Monday night from the
east where he participated in the campaign in Brandon, and bad the pleasure of meeting many old friends.
Speaking of affairs political,he said to
the Rossland Record:
"Sifton'b election may be attributed
to lots of ready cash, Impersonation,
and every other trick known to men
supporting his cause, nis campaign
was encouraged by all tho toughs,
gamblers and crooks in Winnipeg,
who worked ceaselessly for his return.
Four of them were arrested for impersonation, among thorn, a notorious
gambler named Corsan, of Winnipeg,
who, presumably, is the leader of the
gang. Money flowed like water, and
corruption was rife wherever Sifton
prosecuted his cuuse.
"So far as the meeting and general
enthusiasm among tho electors was
concerned, and us far as one could tell
on the surface, the election was Hugh
John McDonald's. Never in any campaign held in that constituency have
I had the pleasure of addressing larger or more enthusiastic gatherings.
"The size of Sifton's majority is
the best evidonce one wants, as to the
tueanB which were used to elect him.
Defeat meant political doath to Sifton. His friends knew this, and in
Oieir di'spei-.-it icen they far exceeded
even their own most sanguine expectations in debauching the constituency.
My hope is that our political frieads
in Brandon will bring the matter before the courts. 1 think, in the interests of political morality iu Canada,
this should be done, or the election
should be contested."
As to local affairs Mr. Daly is convinced that tho Conservatives in this
riding Bhould make greater efforts
than ever to secure the election of Mr.

Perhaps if it hadn't been for the
beautiful Scotch mist that euvoloped
the City last night and shut out a
view of the sky a whole carnival of
meteors might have been noticed. The
astronomers have fixed the dates of
the display at between the 13th and
15th so tonight we will be in the very
middle of it. It is supposed to be
one of the biggest shows that the astronomers have arranged for sometime and according to announcement
sliould be visible here. The mist is a
little heavier than ever today and it is
too bad if we are to miss such a great
performance by the Heavens simply
because they refuse to ring up the
curtain. One of the most notable displays of meteors occurred on November 13, 180b. It was seen all over Europe and the Cape of Good Hope, and
elsewhere. About H,.00 meteors were
counted at Greenwich, and it is supposed that another thousand may
have escaped observation. On an average each meteor was visible about
three seconds, and drew a cord of rad
iance from 20 to 40 degress in length.
In November, 1807, similar star
showers, as they are called were seen
in the United States. Similar dispays
have been seen in November ��� of the
ysars 922, 931, 934, . 1003, 1101, 1202,
12.li, 1300, 1093, 1799, 1832, and 1833.
It is believed that a ring of meteors
revolves around the sun, portions of
which are very thickly studded with
them, while in other sections there
are only a few. Every year the earth
cuts through the ring, though only
every 33 years cutting through the
part whore they are most crowded.
This year it is thought by astronomers that we will pass through a section containing many of these tramps
of the   sky.
Meteors are of iron, but when they
pass through the air the great speed
causes such a friction that they burn
with an incandescent glow that
gives them the appearance of shooting
stars. Should we have tho promised
shower of meteors it will be an interesting sight.
The New York Sun is   quite   elated
with the success of   the   Laurier Government.    It   seems   to   bear  out tho
statements   made frequently   that the
Liberals are  really   more   friendly to
the   United   States   than   they   are to
England, notwithstanding the fervent
protestations    of   loyalty   that    were
raised for use (outside of   Quebec)   in
the recent   elections.    Says The   Sun :
"Tho fact thut the Liberals have been
given a larger majority than they obtained   four   years   ago is an event of
oonBequencc   not   only to   Canadians,
but to the whole    Hritish Empire, for
it has killed the project for a customs
union   between   the   Mother  Country
and the groat self-governing colonies.
The   effect of a swooping victory   for
tho   Liberal   programme   in    Cnnada
upon   the   British   Empire at large is
unmistakcablo.    Canada will continue
to   discriminate   In   favor   of   British
imports to tlie extent of 331J por cent,
but it will not admit   them duty free,
and it will   not even request a preference   for   Canadiau   products  in   the
United    Kingdom   at   the   exponso of
competitive   staples   -forwarded   from
tho United States, Russia   and Argentina.    That is to say,the Dominion of
Canada will continue to pursue an independent existence and will not oven
try to knit more firmly   the bond connecting her   with   the   United   Kingdom.    Nor is this   all.    The   Liberal
party headed by Laurier   and conspicuously   represented    by     Cartwright,
comprises   all   friends   of   tho United
States In Canada.    It is a party which
recognizes   the   tremendous power  of
Influences which   tend to connect economically     and    politically     British
North America With the great American Republic.    The   victory for Laurier means   that, the Joint High   Commission will shortly   resume   activity
and will endeavor to modify the relations   of the   English-speaking   rum
inonwealtht. upon this continent,"
If Premier Dunsmulr will ts; a Mr.
John Houston's advice he will immediately have a shuffling of the cabinet and if he will only do as The Tribune this morning told him to he will
make Mr. John Houston one of his
Ministers. But the worst of it is that
Mr. Dunsmulr Is a man of sense, so,
even whon backed up with a paper
that has a wonderfully large circulation among manufacturers of cork
legs, Mr. Houston will have to remain
content with the honors that have already been thrust upon hm. As soon
as he realizes this all necessity for cabinet changes will probably disappear.

Some Fnc s About the Life, of the Copper Magnate.
The death of Mr. Marcus Daly,
which took place Monday morning
lust has been expected for weeks. He
came home from Europe about the
middle of September and soon after
was obliged to take to the bed from
which he never again arose. His physicians informed tbe relatives sometime
ago that Mr. Daly could not recover
and they were given assurance of life
only from day to day. Blight's disease complicated with heart weukness
was the cause of death. At Mr. Daly's
death bed were Mrs. Daly, Murcus
Duly, jr., his son, his daughters,
Mary, Margaret and Harriet, the Rov.
M. J. Lavello, his attorney William
Seallon, of Montana, and two physicians.
2 Mr. Duly was conscious only at intervals on Sunday. At 4 o'clock in the
morning he revived from a sinking
spell aud seemed moro than ordinarily
bright. He asked that his fnmily be
"Only a little while more, little bit
more," he said, when asked if he was
better. The family came hastily and
remained until the end. Death came
peacefully. The physicians said Mr.
Daly was conscious until a few minutes before he passed away.
The body will be removed to the
Daly home in Fifth Avenue and
the funeral will be held from St. Patrick's Cathedral, but at what time it
has not been decided. The body probably will be placed in a receiving
vault until the family decide upon a
place of final interment.
Marcus Daly was born in Ireland in
1813. He came to the United States
early in life and since 1870 had been a
citizen of Montana. He became gen-
erul manager of the Alice silvor mine
aud^later came into control of the Anaconda Copper mine. At the time of
his death he was president of the
Amalgamated Copper Company. In
politics he was Democrat.
The differences between Mr. Daly
and W. A. Clark have attracted muoh
attention. The trouble Mailed yearo
ago over some water rights near
Butte, which Daly wanted and which
Clark had bought, forcing the other,
to pay a very high figure. Daly's opportunity for revenge came in 1S8S,
when Clark was the Democratic nominee for delegate to Congress. With
hU Immense influence in Anaconda,
Daly was able to throw a heavy vote
to Carter Clark's Republican rival,
which had previously been cast for
the Democratic party.
Montana became a state in 1889. At
the first state election Mr. Clark was
the Democratic nominee for Representative in Congress and J. K. Toole
for Govern ir. The latter was elected
but Clark was defeated, Huppositiously
owing to Daly influences. Clark was
then put forward for the United
States Senate. After a bitter contest
the Legislature wns organized by both
parties, each claiming to bo legal.
The Republicans named Thomas C.
Power and W. H. Saunders for their
Senators, while tho Democrats put up
Mr. Clark and Major Martin Magiu-
nis.    The Republicans were Beated.
Daly's iniluenee defeated Clark in a
second contest in 18U3. In that Legislature tho Democrats had 35 votes, the
Populists three and the Republicans
33. The Daly Democrats, numbering
nine.vote*1 solidly for ex-Congressman
W. W. Dixon and there was a deadlock for the entire session of sixty
days. Telegrams from men like Calvin S. Urice and W. C. Whitney and
other equally high in their party were
sent to Daly to withdraw his opposition, but he ignored the demand and
the fight continued.
The next fight between Daly
and Clark wus on the location of tho
state capital. Helena, Missoula,
Bo-emuii and Anaconda wero in the
light. Daly advocated the last-named
place. Clark at firBt favored Butte,
but finally changed to Holena,and that
city waB chosen. The Senatorship
again became the bone of contention
between the two millionaires lust
January and Clark was elected. Daly
had the validity of the election contested on the ground of bribery,
when Clark presented his credentials
to the United StateB Senate. Tne use
of money in the election was freoly
charged on both sides, though it was
claimed that tho expenditures wero
fo- legitimate expenses only. The
contest resulted in the Senate voting
that there nnd been no election by
the Montana Legislature. This year
Olark made a light for the election
for memberB of the Legislature in his
interest and won. His return to the
Senate next January   Is assured.
No mining property has achieved
greater fame as a producer of dividends than the fnmons Anaconda.
Originally bought us a silver mine, it
became famous for its copper, and to
it both Daly and Clark largely owe
their vast fortunes. Baok in the '70's

Lawrence, coming to this state, went
to Montana. They selected a hill
overlooking the little mining camp of
llutte and began to sink their shaft.
They struck a fair vein of silvor, but
lack of funds made them stop work
and offer to sell. Marcus Daly bought
the property for S.R.OOO. He acted,
it is said, as agent for J. B. llaggin,
of California, who had sent him to
Butte to buy him some good mining
As the new-comers ran their shaft
down they exposed one of the world's
greatest copper mines with silver
enough to pay all expenses and leaving the copper as clear profit. Daly
was superintendent and part owner of
the great mine. He bought the adjacent properties. He founded the town
of Anaconda in a valley twenty-live
miles distant and located where there
is an exhuustless supply of water and
a great deal of wood���two lndispens-
ables for the smelting and reducing
of ores. At that place he erected the
greatest copper plant In the world.

Nearly three weeks have elapsed
since the main shalft of the City's
stone crusher gave way and since
that time the macadamizing of Haker
Street lias progressed very little. The
Mayor wired to llrantford for repairs,
but as the company did not have them
in supply they had to be ordered from
another company. Since that time
nothing has been learned by the City
officials and it is not known when
tho work can be resumed on liaker
With a large force of men the Tramway Company started to lay the
street car track from the present terminus on liaker Street to the new C.
P. R. depot this morning. When this
is completed a regular car service
will be given in that direction. The
work of changing the track in the
southern portion of the city has advanced to Kobson Street, and when
the track to the depot is completed,
work will again be started on Robson
Street and the track will be extended to the skating rink. When the
skating season opens a regular car
service will be given over that portion
of the line.

Tonight the sterling old English
comedy-drama, "The Black Flpg,"
will be presented and the engagement
will be closed with it, The Macoy

The name "An American In Cuba,"
coujnres up to the mind of the ordinary Canadian a most heart rending
array of blood curdling incidents that
redound to the everlasting glory of
t'nele Sam's soldiers and placo them
on a pinnacle above the rest of the
world. It was thi. feeling that kept
the public away from the theatro last
night when the Macoy Comedy Company produced ''An American in
Cuba," Hut it was not an intensely
American play. In fact it was not as
much American as it was Spanish,
and had nothing at all to do with
bravery or military prowess but all to
do with lovo and intrigue, nnd those
who were present enjoyed a performance in which a very pretty story was
capitally told. Mr. Sedlcy had the
leading male part and handled it very
acceptably, lie is a pleasing and
natural actor and his part was well
sustained. Mr. Dehlman as the vll-
lian, a plotting antl crafty Spanish
officer, was very good. A decided improvement over his Monday night's
work was the fact that he spoke so he
could be understood, Mr. Graham as
the iihiqtiltioii- correspondent was
capital and lent a touch of refined
comedy that well suited tho spirit of
the piece. The other men had small
parts that were well taken.
Miss Sutten wns decidedly pleasing as "Jtinnitn Garcln." While she
would probably have felt more
nt homo in a lighter part
her Interpretation of her lines
showed that her hist runic ability is
of a high order. Miss Wells scored
another success and Miss Otrance's
work was a great improvement over

city and a pugilist of Northport who
does not wish to make his name public, but probably expects to have a famous name after tho oontest. He has
asked that the proposed match be

Bruce H. Walk, Detroit, Mioh., who
has juit returned from the Klondike,
brought with him a very interesting
specimen, the tooth of a mammoth, an
extinct animal of the elephant spec
ies, which inhabited the polar regions
perhaps 1,000,000 years ago, when
that was a tropical country.
The tooth weighs about 18-pounds
and, according to local authority, be
longed to an animal from 10 to 20 feet
tall aud large in proportion. That
the mammoth was an aged one is said
to be denoted by the worn condition
of the grinding portion of  the   tooth.
"I am not an authority on this mat
ter," said Mr. Walk, "but _ huve seen
many   fossils throughout   the various
mining camps of Alaska   and have no
doubt that   some   of our   more   enterprising universities   will organize ex
peditions soon   to study conditions in
this region.    I   might   have  had   the
tusks of   this   mammoth, whose tooth
I   brought down, but at   the   last mo
ment desisted on account of the great
weight and   the distance from clvlliz
at ion.    The tooth was   found   64   degrees latitude in   one  of the trilmtar
ies of the Sulphur River, a region   fa
mous for its gold deposits. The moun
tains rise   very steep   on either   Bide,
and   the   stream,   which is  small,   is
surrounded   by    golden    sands.    The
tooth was taken   from   an   excavation
about 40 feet   below the surface   at  a
point near the middle of   the   valley
The geological   conditions, as   nearly
as I recall, were as follows:
"First, we dug through about a
foot of moss and surface vegetation
then through about 32 feet of muck
and sand, and then we struck about
three feet of perfectly preserved Arc
tic vegetation, buried doubtless for
thousands of years; and below that
for 10 feet is the gold sand, which
goes down to bed rock, where the
gold sinks through the lapse of long
time. It was at bed rock that the
tooth was found, also fossil bones.
"The tooth shows the marks of
long usage, being worn down very
thin in parts. The holes for the ar
tcries are clearly seen in broken parts
of the tooth. The grinding surface is
very large, as well a�� the proportion
of enamel.
"I might have had the skeleton of
the feet, too, but did not care to bur
den myself with them. They were of
the shape of an elephant's foot, and
each spocimen was ubout 18 Inches In
"A story Is told of a Russian engi
neer, Bcnkeudorfl, who on an expedl
tion on the Lena river of Alaska, in
1841, while on a branch, the Indijlr,
ran into a sudden upheaval of Immense waters, forcing the stream
from its bod. The bank began to fall
away, and, to the surprise of the
party, the head of a mammoth ap
poured in plain view and danced to
and fro as though about to be carried
away on the flood.
"It Is clear that this primeval mon
ster had wandered to the side of some
ancient river and, becoming stalled In
the ooze of the shores, sank deeper
and deeper and gradually was covered
from sight; and as the years passed,
the Intense cold of the region embalmed perfectly his ponderous form, so
that when discovered after a lapse of
perhaps several thousand years, his
form was still In a good state of preservation.
"lle was pulled and hauled ashore
nnd a hasty scientific examination
made. Ills body was covered with
hairs a foot long, which were of three
klnds.one a cloBe-growIng wool,showing that the mammoth was well prepared to withstand the bitter cold of
that northern country.
"The mammoth was 18 feet high,
11 feet long, had tusks eight feet
long, and ��� tall  six feet long,"
Extensive development work is to bo
done upon the Maple Leaf claim
whloh is situated near the well known
Yellowstone mine near Salmo. This
property has been lying idle for some
time but yeBterday Edwurd Peters of
Ymir, and W. Warden, who has of
late returnod from Dawson City and
who is representing David Doig, now
a banker at Dawson City and formerly of Trail, B. C, visited the property to look into the matter of doing
further development work. It was
decided to go on with the work but
just when it will be started, has not
yet been decided as various arrangements have first to be mado.
The property was located some time
ago and the ledge which has been
found to be from 10 feet to 30 feet
wide has been uncovered the entire
length of the claim by open cuts. The
lead has also been traced for the distance of one mile through the adjoining claims. Assays from the ore taken from the surface have been made
and they gave a return of from Sii to
810 in gold. The ledge is of an iron
cap nature and will have to be treated by a smelting process.
The owners of the claim are: David
Doig, of Dawson City; George Kydd,
Herbert Irving and Alexander Lambert ot Nelson, and   Edward Peters of

Mr. B. C. Riblet returned yesterday
from Sandon where he* has been for
the last two weeks superintending
the final construction) and trial operation of the aerial tramway at the
Ivanhoe mine. The tram has been accepted by the mine and.is now being
operated with a dally capacity of lflu
tons. The tram is about two and a
half miles long and connects the mine
with the concentrator which is located at the railroad about a half mile
below Sandon. An hundred and
twenty-five ton mill is now running
at the concentrator. Tbe completion
of this tram places the Ivanhoe mine
in the ranks of the shippers. For the
last four years development work has
been carried on at the mine and there
are now about fifty men employed
The tram at the Tamarac mine,
which is also being constructed by
Mr. Kiblet, is well under way as construction work hs now being carried
on. This tram will be a,mile and a
half long and will take about two and
a half months to complete.

Rossland people are interested in
the dlsovery of a promising vein on
the city's main thoroughfare. The
Record says: An assay has been
made of the ore found yesterday in
the ledge on the Alice ground, underneath the Queen's Hotel, on Columbia
Ave. The return is a good one giving
about 814 in gold and from four to
five per cent in copper. It is more
than likely that when the workmen
are excavating for the new Federal
building at the northwest corner of
the avenue and Queen Street they will
again tap tho ledge near the Paris
Belle line. Tho owners of the Alice
have not announced what steps they
will take to develop the find, but as
the returns arc so good, it is probable
that a move will be made in the matter. In any case the find is an inter-
eating and valuable one.
Referring to the dispute between
the C. P. R. and the Great Northern
ever the right of way for a spur line
lu Rossland, the Record says: The C.
P. R. have gradually increased the
working force on the extension of the
Centre Star Bpur into the Black Bear
gronnd until the afternoon there are
nearly 100 men at work on the job.
The spur will pass under both Le Roi
tramways and In addition to getting
the ore out to Trail, the Lo Roi nnd
other B. A. C. companies will In future be ia a position to get in their
timber and other supplies. The
Great Northern and C. P. R. engineers
had a long conference during the day
and It now looks as If the right of
way question would be settled by the
parties without further trouble.
