Berlin, July lo.���Emperor William's telegram to Dr. Hingpeter, the
former tutor of His Majesety, fur-
uishas the Press with a welcome relief
from the midsummer dullness. His
Majesty's association of his unshaken
determination to continue in spite of
all resistenoe in tho way he considers
light, is senerallj interpreted as refer-
irng to the anti-strike hut, it i s not
believed tbe Emperor's words will
help tho measure winch all agre.' is
buried beyond hope of resureotiou.
Ihe telegram has not been well rec-
fivetl outside of tbo Conservative press
It is generally considered another
til His .Majesty's unfortunate errors ot
meddling with pnrty politiics.
The Conservative Post regards tho
telegram as a symptom of the Imperial
Government being determined not to
leave tie path the lato Prineo Bismarck followed in dealing with labor
and social questions.
The National /.eitung calls the tele-
Riain a purely personal aud private utterance. Tho Tngblatt attempts to
emphasize this view by printing the
telegram under the heading of court
news antl affects to regard it as of no
political importance and as sent from
"ie Imperial yacht with the presence
M a responsible minister. The sooial
press at raoe seized upon the tele-
gram, which was ixcollont notation

London, July lf>.���Another week
of bickering, of heated invective and
vituperation, accusations of tyranny
on one hand and treason on tho other,
of increasing distress among the Uitlanders of tho Uf.itil, owing to tho dislocation ot businoss, i.f military preparation and throughout all the apparent maintenance of the Boers of their
solid attitude of indifference, til the
representations marie havo only Borved
to add to the perils of the Trnusvual
situation and every'hing tends to oon-
finu the opinion that tho Imperial Government meuns to obtain reform.
The Ministers have practically pledged
thomselves to euforce them, peacefully
if possible, otherwise forcefully.
The Empire appears nbsolntely a unit
on tho subject. On top of Queensland's offer of troops to serve in South
Afrioa should an emergency nrise the
reports of the Debate in the Canndian
Parliament ami the tone of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and oir Charles Topper's re
mnrks bave causod the greatest satisfaction here.
The startling telegram published by
the Lour organ here, the Digger's
Nows. on Friday, showing apparently
that the Transvaal was giving in and
thnt cordial relations hud been resumed whim was promptly denied by
the Secretary of State for the Colonies,
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, though evidently tiuged to suit the susceptibilities of the papers was so circumstantial and apparently authoritative that
hope was aroused that the end ot
the i|inurel was in sight, bnt tho only
foundation for the riispatoh was found
in the fuct that Mi. Obanibetlain on
Wednesday, before the new franchise
bill was introduced in the Volksrand,
requested that the text be oommuni-
cnted to him and suggested that the debate be pinpoiieri pending such representations iu regard to alterations
therein as the Imperial Government
might desire to make in tbe interest
of peace. The refusal of President
Kruger to grant the request is regarded here as a fresh offense and will
only served to clinoh the belief that
the President is still dominated by Dr.
Leyos, the European representative of
tbe Transvaal, who has hiherto proved the evil genius for the Transvaal
aud continues to delnde the Trans-
vaalers with the dangerous theory
that if they can only gain time by
simulated concessions no renl reform
will be necessary as a new grouping of
the powers will shortly oconr whereby
Great Britain will no longer have a
freo hsud in South Africa. In the
meantime tte British forces In Sonin
Africa are being increased by every
steamer and the avoidanoe of harsh
measure, the end of whioh is diffloult
to see and which threatens to spr��ad
far leyond the confines ot the country
giving" riso to them, is becoming more
dilllcult.

London, July 15.���There is a great
deal of anxiety regarding the Alaska
dispute in politioal ciroles. Thougn
the general publio does not attach
moch importance to the matter, jingo
papers like the Saturday Review grasp
ed the opportunity to n-air their antl
American proclivities. After asserting that the Canadians desire to finally
decide the matter by impartial arbitration while the United States demands
a tribunal whicn will be either a farce
or unlikely to settle anything, the Review says: "We cannot concede more
to the United States without Canadian aquiesenoe.and our own experience
in that direction does not give much
hope of the concessions even if we do.'
In couclusion the Review remarks:
"If the Anglo-Saxon entente does nothing to modify the American attitude
towards Alaska it will have proved
to be more useless than tho bubbles of
the ohampaguo in whioh it floated into existence."

refused to denude Brayton Manor of

The Hague, July 15.-The sub committee on arbitration had a short session today in order to dear np the objections of the minor powers to the arbitration soherae prior to the sitting
of the oommittee on Monday next.
The amendments proposed are calculated simply to protect the minor powers, that will not be forced to accept
arbitration unwllingly at the hands of
the stronger nations.

prominent mining men have made an
examination of this property during
the last three weeks. Their verdiot
was: Undoubtedly, without any exception, tbe grea'test proposition in
British Columhia.
The White Elephant group situated

NOT LONG  IN   ACTING
The Board of Trade Did Not Take Lone
to  Urge the P. 0. Department to Aot.
It did i'ot take tbe Board of Trade
long to secure a dailv mail servioe over
the Crow's Nest Pass railway. Within four days of the dispatoh of their
telegrura to the Post Master Qeneral
word was received by Post Master Gilker to the effeot that oommenoing
today a daily mail serivoe would be
inaugurated between Nelson aud some
points on tbe line.
These points will be Kuskonook,
Cranbrook and Fernie and the mail
will leave Nelson every n igbt exoept
Saturday. There will be no service on
Saturday night on acconnt ot the faot
that the post offices along the line are
closed on Sundays. Tbe importance
ot Nelsou merobauts of a daily mai I service to Orow'sNest points can soaroely
be overestimated as the sati-fac-
tory arrangements existing heretofore bave caused many orders to be
sent to Winnipeg tbat would otherwise
bave beeu given to Nelson houses.
Witb tbe inauguration of a daily servioe one may expect to see the real
commencement of tne good that Nelson ir to rierivo from the rapidly progressing East Kootenay.
INDIGNANT J, P 'S
A decr.���'rated Justice of the Peace
ror tbe Slooan distriot writes: "1

Coast papers whioh will show up the
manner in whioh the men wbo were
begged to take uoromisHion some time

being treated by the present Government. I happen to be one of those
wbo were subjeoted to the indignity
of haviug his commission revoked."
The writer adds as the only reason
that he had interesred him self? in
the election of an Opposition candidate. He asks the Miner to give the
following letter the pnblioity it deserves :
"Sir���The commission of the Peace
is given to men wb o, from a sense of

The Tribune has a method of proving
that the mining industry of Ainsworth
and Slooan has not suffered by the
operation of the eight hour law, and
that reports to the effeot that it had
done so are slanders of the Opposition
press designed to injure tbe Government.
Tbe proof offered is the amount of
cash forwarded from the Kaslo oftlco
during the month of Jnne to the Government agent at Nelson. The figures
given by the Tribune are $8,855.91 for
tbe last week in Jnne, 1899, which
are correct. These figures speak

The 0. P. E- Has 400 Men at Work, and

Everything seems to be moving up in
the Lardo-Duucan  oounry.    Mr. J. H.
Love who  returned  yesterday   from a
trip to the President   group of olaims
on Howser Lake  gave   some   interest-
ng information to a Miner representative.     The President   group   is   composed   of   five   claims aud   they   give
great   promise.    One   shipment  went
aB high   as $52 to the ton.   The  Gold
Hill E. and D. Oompany, have lti men
working    on    different    olaims.    .'.s
yet the work is principally on the surface.    Tbe   North West   Development
Co., has four   men   at   work on   Bear
creek, 14 milos np   the Upper Dnncan.
Tbe Baunockburn group on Hall creek
is working nine men.    Tbe Lode Star,
ou Hall oreek, hns built warehouses at
tbe head of navigation ou   the   Upper
Duncan.   Tbe Standard  Gold  Mining
Company   of B. O., and the  Imperial
Mining   and   Development    Co.,   are
jointly   working   men on   a  trail  to
their properites, between   Cariboo and
Hoodo  creeks.    The Old Gold Qnartz
aud Placer Mining Oo.,   are   abont  to
make aBbipment of ore via Thompson's
Landing at the head of   Arrow   Lake.
This  ore  should   naturally come ont
tbis way by   Kootenay   Lake bnt  tbe
absolute lack of trails makes it necessary for  the company   to paok tbe ore
over ihe divide , nnd   down to Thompson's   Landing.    A   number  of other
companies in the district are   employing about !10   men.    All    the   reports
nre to the effect that the, development
work thus far has proven   tbe   distriot
to be an unusually rich one i.n.l no part
of the Province   seems to  offer   better
advantages for the   investmert of capital.     The   Kaslo   and   Slooan   Railway are   making preliminary  surveys
along Howser Lake and up the   Upper
Duncan.    Tbis   makes  it look as if  a
rouri was to go   up   there.    It    would
cerrninly tap a rich   country  as    big
ledges have been uncovered   there   bnt
as yet tbere is no  way of getting   ore
ou t.   The   C   P. R.   bas   400 men  at
work between   Lardi and Tront  Lake
and the K. & S. will put  on   a  large

SHOT IN PRISON.
Gainesville, Ga., July 15.���S. L.
Smith, a Habersham County farmer,
who killed W. Bell, a commercial
tiavnler from Atlanta, several months
ago, was shot to death in jail here
this morning a mob of masked men.
Tho sberilf was induced to open the
doors or the jail on the plea of Ireceiv-
ing a prisoner from the sheriff of an
adjoining county. Smith wdsjasteep,
when the mob entered and witbont
warning or arousing him one of the
mob leveled his pistol at the sleeping
torm and emptied it, one of the first
bullets piercing tbe heart. Other men
opened fire on the prisoner and when
they ceased firing tho viotim's body
had been riddled with bullets. After
completing their bloody work the mob
quietly dispersed. The Governor will
be asked to offer a reward for tbe
capture of the men composing the
mob. There is great indignation here
among the respectable people beoanse
of the orime.

A SECOND   PRESS INVASION.
Change?    We   fancy   this   is not  [as
great a difficulty hb it may be made to
appear; atMltny rate the  reconstruction
of the   (loverumeut   will bf far from
satisfactory if the Premier and his Finance Minister do not exhibit very considerable proficiency as  political acrobats. We havo not understood that Mr-
Cotton is oarticularly enamored    with
the Eight-Hour   law, and if he stoutly
advocated it at one time it vim doubtless   under   the belief   Unit   it   would
make votes for the   Ministerial party.
Now   that   he  see1*   it  has played   us
much havoo with that party as  it   his
with the   industrial   piogress   of   tl e
Provinoe,   he is probably   quite ready
to disclaim any   affection for it.    And
it is   quite  as oasy   to repudiate   his
policy of repudiation.  Tho old Government with a now patch will not satisfy
the   oountry.   There   must be    something more than   tho  mere filling cf a
vacancy, and to aohievo this it will be
neoessary to   work  a    change   in the
Bpirit   as   well   as   the   form   of   the
Government.     Wo    suspeot   that  the
Ministers named will offer no insuperable difficulty to this reformation.

HUDSON'S BAY
COMPANY.
Another body of Canadian journalists are heading for British Columbia,
and will take in Nelson with other
Kootenay points before returning to
their homes. These are from farther East tban our lnte visitors, principally from Ontario, although there
is a liberal sprinkling from Quebec,
and an odd one or two from the Maritime Provinces. Many of them, no
doubt nearly all of them, are visiting
British Columbia for the first time.
They might have come any time these
twelve year", so far as railway facilities were concerned. And during
nearly the whole of that period they,
in common with the rest of tbe world,
bave known tbat the mountain scenery along the Canadian Pacific is the
grandest on earth. It cannot be the
Boenery, therefore, that brings them,
for, if it were, it would have drawn
them long ago. Incidentally it is an
attraction, and it will be enjoyed to
the very highest capaoity of tbe
tourists; but��soniething else tbere must
be to move them to take so long a
journey.
The reputation of the Canadian Pa-
ciSo iB something of a factor. Tourists
are well looked after. Every attention is paid them ; they are made as
comfortable as possible; indeed, pains
are taken to give them the sensation
of perfect enjoyment. Hence it happens tbat the Canadian Pacifio is becoming a favorite route for excursions.
Bnt fonr or livo score of buBy journalists from the far East are not going
to cross the oontinent merely to experience the pleasures of travelling over
tbe Canadian Pacific. It is British
Columbia's reputation tbat attracts
them. They have been hearing of it
for many years back, bnt only recently
has it been borne in on them that, in
tbe promise of its future, it is tbe most
brilliant of all tbe Provinces of tbe
Dominion. They are just beginning
to realize that its mineral wealth will
make it the most prosperous, while its
admirable climate is making it the
most desirable aB a place of residence.
British Columbia is growing rapidly
in the public eye and mind, and Eastern journalists are naturally anxious
to see it for themselves. A Province
tbat is so much talked of, that is attracting so much general attention, ie
worth studying, and theBe newspaper
men believe that the study could he
made more interesting and more profitable if conducted on the spot. Therefore these Press Associations, in deciding on their usual Bummer excursions,
have resolved to cross the contiueut
and see British Columbia for themselves.
About a round hundred who compose
tbe seooud body of exoursionists will
reaoh Nelson in a few days. We do not
know that they expect tbe City to go
to any expense in entertaining
them; indeed, it is donhtfnl if anything like an elaborate reception is
desirable. The fact of their coming
will be noted at the Counoil meeting
on Monday night, when no doubt
everything nooossary for their reception and entertainment will be provided for. That really need not consist of anything more than official recognition on thoir arrival, nnd a littlo
courteous attention during the few
hours of tbeir stay. If a oommittee
were appointed, of whioh the Mayor
should be the head, to welcome them
on behalf of the City, and to do tbe
customary simple honors while they
remain, we shall be doing all that ia
necessary and no donbt quite as much
as is expeoted.
There is a tradition that a Prosident
of the Unite;! States must not go beyond tbe boundaries of his country
during his term of ofllce. If a law at
all it iB au unwritten one, but there
is a popular belief that it is faithfully
observed. Next week President Mo-
Kinley in to visit a friend's house on
one of the Thousand Islauds of the St.
Lawrence. The majority of those Island* are Cauadiau, and the dividing
Hue is left wholly to the imaginaticn,
running in and out and about in a
manner that would be calculated to
tire one. It is impossible tbat Mr.
Mcliinley oan pass a few days in that
charming ��pot; without paddling among
the inlands, and it will be a miracle
indeed if he does not get outside of
Amerioan territory. We do no* know
what will happen, bnt it will be a
meroy if the ot. Lawrenoe does not
turn around and flow the other way.

Then in cold long winter tho love
of iho streams and lakes, tnough dormant for a season, is intensified by at
tendiiiK to the sundry requirements of
the angler's outfit. Tbere are rods to
mend, casta to make, flies cj tie, and
what uot. It is delicious to remember
the enjoyment of the post season, to
recall the music of waters whioh have
Ions aiuce run to the blue seas; of trees
shaken by winds that have died to rest.
They are like attendant sprites in
our dwellings making themselves
known onlv in the evening, when the
tire flow shines into the uufathoined

Why does a tront take a Roval, semi

whether tbo articiiial fly is to be used

tlie lish rising all round you, and yon
cannot induce them to taste your
dainty morsels of fur and feather unless you happen to bave an imitation
of that particular bonne bouche that
they are feeding on Again thero are
days when tbo delicate little midges
on tha water are discarded and the
trout will readily take somo sunken

"And the gold of that land was good."���Uene-
sls II., 12,
"And the gold of that land was good"
'tis writ
Of Eden, when   Earth was   youug;
Ere the tarnishing weed of   lust    and
greed
From the hot-bed of Hell had   sprung.
And what of the gold of tbis Kootenay land.
Where lately the wild beast trod;
Is it good, this gold, now that Earth
is   old,
And Mammon is mankind's god?
Leave toil and distress now tbe.
day is o'er,
And come for a while apart;
I shall show you mines, as the sun declines,
That will ravish  vour  inmost  heart.
See yonder distant and lofty peak,
"J'is a mountain of glistening gold
See   the Ik art of the lake in   the sunlight's   wake,
How it sparkles with wealth untold.
Tbe western sky is a molten mass,
Splashed   over   and    spilled   on    the
hills;
Each rock, cloud and stream shows the
bright red gleam,
And the heart with its richness fills.
Oh I   Here   ib wealth,   where the   toil
worn soul
May draw for oontentment aud peace;
No end to this store, there will always
be more,
Till sun-light and shadow shall cease.
No miser's hoard oan suoh fortune bestow ;
Though purohased with groans and
blood;
But this glorious gold doth enrich tenfold.
For the gold of this land is good.

LICENSE COMMISSIONERS MEET.
All the Existing Licenses  in the City
Were Renewed.
There were no complaints reoeived
against any of the hotels or saloons in
the City and at a uieeting yesterday
morning of tbe License Commissioners
tho Oily Olerk was authorized to renew all the existing "licenses. A transfer was made of the Royal Hotel license from W. G. Robinson to Sol Johnf
who has taken over the bouse.
The application of A. H. Clements
for a license for a saloon in the Oddfellows block was deferred until a full
meetiug of the board.
Just when this meeting will be held
it is difH mlt to say for the reason that
there is not a full board in tbe City.
Mr. .1. A. Turner's term as commissioner expired ou June 80 and as yet no
one has been appointed in his place.
The Mayor and Aid. McKillop
were present at the meeting yesterday, xhey are a quorum but prefer
to let the man that is to be appointed
have something to say regarding the
granting of a new license.
NELSON CRICKET OLUB.
There was a praotioe game yesterday
wbich was oniefiy noticeable for the
wretched fielding of tbe playe��� and
the excellent bowling of Mr. Williams
who toot six wiokots at tbo cost of
two runs.
It is hoped that Mr. Williams will be
able to trundle the leather for Nelson
against Rossland. He has an excellent pitch and a medium pace and the
matting help to make bis bowling
dffioult. J. Elliot and Walker batted

C. D. Porter has returned from a
trip throach British Colombia mining
camps extending tnrongh tbe fcrlocan
aud other parts of Wen Kootenay and
over to the famous coal mines of East
Kootenay at Fernie, says tbe Spokesman-Review.
"The rainiflR districts of British
Columbia are allritjbt," he said, "But
the Legislature has paralyzed tbe
industry by the enactments of tbe
eight-hour law, a measure uncalled for
and wholly rnnecessary. It has closed many a Slocan mine which would
have been employeing many men and
shioplng murh ore if the conditions
which were satisfactory to everybody
bad not been tampered with. Iu spite
of the fact that many mines are
closed I found avidences of great prosperity and a generally bopuful feeling :
"One thing I noted particularly and
was hignly gratified thereat. That
is tbe ease with whioh one may visit
districts today which a few years ago
were almost inaccesable. One may
take a steamer at Kelson now and
after a delightful trip be landed at
Kootenay Landing where a palace car
may be taken on the Crow's Nest Pass
line. That sleeper will carry one on
to the big cities of tbe East if he
chooses to go so far. But I was interested in the fact that I could ride in
ease and comfort in a palace car and
look out of the window at spots along
tbe way ���where I OBed to camp in
the earlier days when a trip to East
Kootenay meant many days of hard
roughing it. Tnat railro ii is doing
wonders for the country.
"I visited the coal mines at F-irnie.
I believe the coal measures heie are
the greatest in the world. A canyon
dividf-s the mountains and on either
side great veins of purest coal lie almost horizontally so tbat they may
be oheaply mined by tunnels rnnnng
directly in npon tbey. The extent of
these coal fields iu enormous. Twelve
miles away from Fernie, where tbe
biggest works are located, they are
opening a 12-foot vein which is part
of the same system. The veins are
sometimes as much as SO feet wide.
The company owning the property is
putting in several hundred thousand
dollars in improvements. A recent
move in that direction was the order
for the erection of 800 more coking ovens. The coal is Baid to he equal to
the best in the world for coking purposes. ''
*   *   *
Yesterday Mr. A. Ferland. the Kelson merchant, received a letter from
his brother S. Ferland at Atlin, in
vhich were enclosed several very
pretty nuggets, each of over fl value.
His claims are situated on Pine creek
and at present he is washing out from
six to eight dollarB per day, but as
soon as the water supply improves be
will be able to raise the amount to 36
or 80 dollars. The claims, four in all,
are situated only a short distance
from Discovery claim and Mr. A. Ferland is also interested in them. In
his letter he said it was not wise to
recommend the country to any oue as
there had been too many people there
ail the time and that now tbey were
leaving for Dawson and Bennett at the
rate of from 50 to 100 a day.    There is
ground enough for about lotto people
aud tbere has been about 8000 there
nearly all the time. All lines of bigness were well represented. Mr. Fer-
laud reports a new strike at Sucker
Lake, N W T, whicii is within a few
miles of Atlin and says a numb��r of
people were leaving for there. Two
men who had just come in from Sucker
Luke, brought 03 onnceB of gold, the
result of five weeks' sluicing.
Slocau City, July 14. ���Since writing
last there bas been considerable iniu
ing business doue here. The Skylark
and Ranger owned by Mr. Copelaud
has been bonded for 116,000; a cash
payment was made today amounting
to $2,500. This property wbb under
bond to tbe Hall Minea people of Nelson
three years ago. It is a gold proposition witb a big ledge of low giade ore
The deal was put through by Messrs.
Dickenson and Felt repiesentinga New
York Company. Mr. J. M. Williams,
who bonded tbe Cbapkau another Lemon Creek property began operrtions today and expects to take up a number of
men next Monday to systematically
devilop the property.
The Arlington is steadily working
away and setting more men to work
paying $8.50 a day. R. P. Rithet
who is heavily interested in the Arlington mine took a trip up to the property last Wednesday and is perfectly
satisfied with work being dono and
tbe showing.
The Tamarac. a Springer creek property about three miles from this   City
shipped a car of ore yeBterday.
