Accident Caused by tlie Loosening of a
Safety Bolt���Inquest Held
on Monday*
Bossland, B. 0., May 20.-At   12:30
this morning au  accident occurred   111
the War Eagle   mine  by   which   four
men   lost   their   lives   and   one  was
severely   injured.    At   the   hour mentioned, Thomas Nelville, N. A, Honey
ford, James Palmer, Mike Cooke, and
W. P. Schoiield got on the skip in   the
main shaft of the miue for the purpose
of going from   one   level   to   anothor.
R.   Hall  who  was  tho    engineer  in
charge of tho eloctrio  hoist   seems  to
have lost control of  thn  skip in  some
manner aud   the   result  was   that   it
dropood from tho 250-foot level   a distance    of    350    feet.    Tho   skip   was
smashed aud broken aud the dead   and
wounded   mixed in   tho  wreck.    Tbe
miners working in the   othor   part  of
the mino hurried to the rescue of thoir
unfortunate    comrados.     Tho    killed
The cage was badly smashed ond
the machinery was so out, of order that
it was fouud impossible to hoist, the
dead aud wounded out of the way.
Short ladders wero secured and the
wounded wero fastened to them and
taken by the minors to the surface
through the Iron Mask workings.
They wore taken to the Sisters' Hospital -where their injuries were attended to. Schoiield died at. the hospital,
but Oooko will reeover.
An inquest was held by Dr. Bowes
this afternoon, and the jury after ox-
amiuing the scene of tho accident adjourned uutil Monday.
Particulars of the accident are as follows :
Five men started to coma up from
the 250 foot level and got into the skip
iu the ordinary way, going on service
from ono part of tlio mino to the
otber. Wheu the signal was giveu for
tho hoisting, the skip wbioh entails
on the engineer in charge a considerable exertion of strength, ho braced
himself and as he did so tho lover gave
way. Tho power had nlrendy been
tumod ou nnd the drum at onco be-
gnn to rovolvo for a downward trip.
Tho quick release of the lover when
the great exertion was put forth throw

Junta at   Hong Kong  Consider General
Otis   Too   HaiBh���Usual
Tall Talk.
Manila, May 20.���The Filipino commissioners called on Major General
Otis this afternoon and arranged to
meet the members of Amerioan commission on Monday, whon they expect
their colleagues will have nrirvi d. The
chairman and secretary of thoir commission bave been chosen.
Major General Otis has declined to
recognize tho rebels to the extent of
agreeing to au armstico, but he hns
notified the Amerioan commanders to
refrain temporarily from aggressive action. Thus be is in a position to resume
hostilities at any time. This will
defeat any subterfuge to gnin time
which would not bo the ense if the
general ngreed to an armistice. Tbe
Filipinos mo so deceptive that people
would hesitate to credit with good
faith their latest overtures. More attention is uow paid to them thau wns
paid to thoir previous advances, however.
The Filipino commission is notiuu
under instructious from Aguinaldo
nnd tho congress, but it is possible that
if peace is arranged Generals Lena
and Pma del Pilar and their followers
will continue a guerilla warfare. At
Iloilo an attack on the Americans wns
recently expeoted. Tho Filipino
lender boasted be bad 3*000 riflemen
and 10,00(1 Botomen, and sea*, au ultimatum to the American commander
ordering him to lenve the Island. An
army of natives left tho town and after several days the outposts were
doubled. In addition, the Yorktowu
and the Iris anchored iu positions
commanding the mouth of Jara river
where rhe attack was expected to take
pln-e, but it failed   to materialize.
London, May 20.���Tho Filipino Junta nt ilong Kong has cabled the London oilice of the Associated Press saying it is untrue that General Luna is
wounded or has surrendered, contradict ing the report that General Mont-
enagro is dead and anuonnoing that
the difficulty between Luna and Mas-
endo is settled Th** despatch adds
that tbe opinion prevails in Manila
that the peace negotiations have
failed because Major General Otis de
innuded tho unconditional surrender of
all arms as a preliminary. This, it
was further stated, was considered unnecessarily haish, and it was announced that the Filipinos would
"continue to tight until their ri��hts
���i-c recognized and wonld appeal to
mo American people to help them
obtain their natural and reasonable aspirations."

Mr.H.C.Cummins returned yesterday
from a visit to Duncau City, aud
while he does not seem to bave seen
anything to induce him to quit Nelson for that place, yet Duncan Oity
must lio a busy spot just now. Owing
to the injunctions which bave been
filed, either the O. P. R. nor the
Kaslo-Lardo-Dunoau railroad nre working in the pass jus<; at preseut, but
construction is in full swing nenr
Duncau City, where Doth compnuies
have construction camps and the men
are busily at work grading and putting
in slips. The Kaslo-Lardo road are now
putting in piers for their bridge across
the Duncau river. About 500 men in
all are working iu ono Duncan City.
There are at preseut two ways of getting to Dumau City from Argenta.
which is at the head of tho lnke. One
is by river aud the othor by trail, bur
the river is very low at present and
practically only navigable for cauoes.
Duncau City is 12 miles from Ar-
gouta, and tho freight chargeB are
heavy. It costs \}., cents per pound
to send freight by water.nnd the packers chnrge two* cents. There is uo
lumber in Duncan City, aud at present it is impossible to got any in
there. Neither is thero a sawmill,
though there is talk of erecting ono
there soou. There is some talk uf trying to take the steamer Marian up to
Duncau City, but this will not be feasible until there is at least auother
foot, of wator iu the river. Town lots
are selling briskly, the urices as a rule
ranging from $100 to $150. Thero are
at present one hotel aud one general
store iu Duncan Oity.

Luyties1 testimony was along the

East End Nuisance Will   Be Remove I
by tho Council.
A number of property owners of the

Beer nud Hillyer listened to th" arguments advanoed by Judge Forin and
Messrs. K. Council. Ooxhend, .1. Hepburn, Bannerman, Rutnerforri ami M.
The question wns gone into fully
and every point in connection with
the nuisance debated ut length. Tin*
deputation wanted the women removed. They did not offer nny solution to
the problem as to where they were to

The aldermen referred to the importance of the question and pointed out
their objection to ru.i auy risk of the
wonieu being scattered throughout the
city, where they would do more harm
than by being kept together as they
nre low.
The property owners stated that
they would prefer to leave the solutioii
to the Council, but if nothing wns
doue to remove the nuisance they would
take up the matter and have the
women arrested nud finol or imprisoned until they wero driven out. They
bad decided that tbe enst end of Baker
street was to be cleansed and would do
it themselves if the Council would not.
Judgo Form referred to the pnblioiti
of the houses, and the evil being done
by tbe women in so flaringly parading

After talking over the question foi
a couple of hours the Aldermon Bottled
tho matter in a moment by Btntiug
that at tho meetiug of the Oounoil tomorrow night, the committee appointed to consider the question woul'i
recommend thnt tho women be given
four months notice to vacate their
premises. Thus tho long standing
disgrace to Nelson will be removed al a

by the deputation who were %\ i 1!

does not sotreadily accommodate itself
to compromise oi concession.
An Interior paper up north says that
few, if auy, of the Interior papers   favor the Government  proposal  to  vote
ono million dollars   in aid of the Pacific cable.    We   Bee   this in a Coast paper.    For itself The Miner  tukes early
occasion   to   repudiate   the   inference
which uaturnlly   attaches  to this bald
statement.    It will he understood that
the   Interior    papers   object   because
the expenditure will bo productive   of
no direct benefit   excepting   to   one or
two points  on tho Coast.   That is not
tho idea at  all.    There   is   not, so far
as The Miner knows, the least jealousy
in   the  matter.    There oannot  be   to
any one who   has   intelligence enough
to    comprehend   the   situation.    The
making of the cable  will  be a matter
of some  importance   to   the manufactory fortunate enough to get  the  contract,   but   the laying of it is   a very
small   affair.    A   ship   will  fit out at
Vancouver,   say,   and then sail away,
and that is the last  of   her   until  the
work is completed.    The  maintenance
of [a station   is   also   a   small   affair.
There might   be a   dozen   cable  lines
putting out from Vancouver, eaoh with
its separate local office, and  the effect
on the population and business   of the
Oity would not be  noticeable.    Oable
lines   do not promote  the   growth  of
places, in the sense   that  railways  or
ordinary industrial   enterprises do. As
there is uo  direct   material  benefit to
share, therefore,   the   Interior  cannot
be jealous of the Coast; it   cannot oppose for the reasou that the Coast is to
get something that  it does not, for in
the  laying of  a   oable   there   is   not
enough to get to  make   it  worth   the
while of any place to work itself into a
coudition of excitement.
The Iuterior papers, as we understand them. oppoBO the proposition on
two broad, general grounds; one, that
it is no business of the Province to
assume any part of the cost of a Pa-
oific cable, and tho other that, if we
have a million to spare, there are
other purposes to which it can be devoted to muoh better advantage. There
ia no question of Coast against the
Iuterior involved iu the matter. The
Miner would rojoice to see Vancouver
or Victoria reap all sorts of benefits
from the construction and operation
of a Pacific cable, and if the enterprise
were one calculated to add to thoir
importanco or to promote their growth
it would be tempted to compromise
���with its scruples so far as to support
tho propose*-* grnut. But there is no
virtue of this kind in an ocean cable
auy moro than thero is one in a telegraph liue; there is nothing fat, in
either. As a Provincial investment
the voto of a million would be very
poor business. Tlie ono or two newspapers that still support the proposul
quote Sir Sauford Fleming ns of the
opinion that tho cable would pay from
the beginning. Sir Snnford Fleming is
an authority on construction, and being an Imperialist of the most ordeut
typo ho is naturully enthusiastic in favor of a Pacilio cuble; but he does not
know better thau the rest of ns
whother it would bo self-sustaining.
Given enthusiasm enough, and anything can bo made to pay on paper.
Cooler calculators are very oertain
that it will not pay for a number of
years. British Columbia is hardly in a
position to take a shuro In an enterprise
that can promise uo immodiate dividends, aud only vory attenuated ones
in proapeotivo.
Thoro can bo no jealousy iu a matter
of this kind, for the very sufficient
roason that thero is not enough substance iu it to excite jealousy. It is
not a question of Interior against the
Coast, and therefore tho distinction
Suggested by the paper alluded to will
not staud handling. It is simply a
questiou of minding our own busitioBfl
and it is no part uf the business of
British Columbia to meddle with the
laying of u Pnoiflo cable. That is tho
joint duty of the Australian colonies,
tbo Dominion, and the Mother Oouutry, and between them thoy nre quito
capable of attending t.o it without interference from us. If we havo millions to burn, we oan probably find
local opportunities onough for the
offoiing of our sacrifice

aud want* of seasonable weathei has, I
fenr.krpt me from the river tbis week.
Wo lii.i'lf tbe pretenoe of a fishing excursion last Sunday. Our craft wus
graded by two of Ibe gentler sex who
rebelled against tlie inclemency of the
weather; and we, being weak and sus-
' eoptiblo (who would not be so in such
enlrancing company) scorned to linger
by the dark lake in the hope of has:]<el-
ing a few wretched iisb but landed und
lunched in indolent luxury cheered by
tlie glow of a log Are.
We were no longer on tho shore of
Kootonay lake hut wen* transported in
fancy to some island in the Aegean
hea, Cythera or Leslies; the centuries
rolled iiack and we lived with the gods
and god-like heroes of the Iliad ; und
there ubove us towered Olympus, from
the summit of whiob Zeus descended
to pay bis addresses, as was his wont,
to our fair eoinp-ninns.
It should be noted that in the matter
of costume we did not attempt to copv
the classical mode ; it was too eold for
that, nnd besides our nineteenth ,*. n-
turv ideas do not permit of the
same laxity m dress ns lhe queen of
love aud her hairl-maidcns indulged
But. the stem realistic faot that it
wns growing colder, thnt n missmbla
drizzle was causing the fair ones'
locks to become "draggled." destroyed
our Hellenic play. We galnntly denied
ourselves our sport, (if the truth were
known, it wns with willing hearts)
and hastened home.
* *   -:t
A few decent sized lish have heen
taken during the week from the lake
near the sbore opposite to the town
They seemed to fancy n small green-
bodied fly with a teal wing and blue-
black hackle. As the water rises the
fishing in the lake from the wharf lo
Grohman creek should improve. Lust
year we got u numl er of fish just below tbe O. P. K. wharf iu tbe evenings
about this time of the yenr. Bnt the
weather wns seasonable tben, while us

I must go back to Sunday for tbo
rest of the week has been devoted to
honest (I hope so at least) wjrk. Among
the few relics of better days thut ure
spared to me, are several buttered Japanned ti'i boxes containing Hies.
There is ono box of Salmon (lies thai
I would not exehnuge for the hanking
account of Croesus, so precious to me
aro tho memories connected with its
contents. Poor old battered warriors
of the water, their feathered garments
torn and worn, their silken bodies
frayed and discolored, their metal barbs
blunted and rust eaten, yet are they
dearer to me than mnch fine gold. As
it was Sunday I brought, out my
treasure, being the nearest approach to
a family bible that I possess. The
audience were anxious to know the
history of five sombre hoed roughly
tied flies occupying a space by them
selves, with tho" letters "D. M. " written oil the box just underneath (hem.
I was not iu a mood tben for spinning
a long yarn so evaded tho question.
The curiosity of Eve's daughters is not
easily quenched and I was tho next
day pressed for an explanation, but
pleaded want of tune. Finally ou being importuned for a third time. I
mude a solemn compact with my fair
friends (hut a full und unabridged history of "D. Jl. " should appear in Sunday's Jliner under "Angling Notes."
Here it* is:
On tho West Coast of Scotland in the
county of Argyllshire and within
twenty miles of the town of Oban
stands a littlo old fashioned hotel and
about six cottages. The place is known
ns Tny-n'uilt which,I believe,is Gaelic
for  'house by tho stream. "
The stream is a brawling bum called
the Nant which empties itself into
the Hiver Awe near to the hotel. The
river Awe runs out of Loch Awe,
some 16 miles from Tny-n'uilt nnd
runs into un nrin of the sea called Loch
Klivo within n mile of tho hotel.
About three miles of the Kiver Awe
������10 preserved by lhe landlord of the
���uiy-n'uilt Hotel for bis guests,
'lhe Awe resembles the Kootenny in
miniature, touring through huge
chusms of fern covered red sandstone,
through moor and forest, through tlie
blank browed rocks of the Puss of
Brander until at lnsl its turbulent current seeks rest in Loch IClivo.
For several veurs two or three of  us
mado a pilgrimage to Tny-n'uilt ut the
timo when as Chnucer wrote :
"Aprille with li ih showers swoto
The draught of March   had pierced  to

Not   so   wo nineteenth   century anglers; for wo went  intent  ou rest and
salmo sudor.
Tho lirst year that I went there, ir
was my privilege to muke the acquaint
auce of 0110 Duncan MucDonald, a poor
crofter who, in the summer added to
his Blender ra 'ans of sustenance by
acting ns ghillie for anglers, I sny
my privilege; for I hnve never yel
known a more naturally refined or
sympathetic soul than thnt poor crofter
possessed. Wo immediately made
friends, and, no matter what previous
engagement ho might hnve mude,
Duncan wus always waiting to attend
mo on my arrival. Ah ! the joyous,
peaceful days wo spent together.
Early in tho morning when the silver
bank's of mist hung o'er the summits
of Pen Moro, whon the spider webs
olung from the jialo primrose to the
purple orchis, when Ihe scent of the
briar nud the meadow-sweet, as the
early sunbeams drank up the dew drops
hanging on the blossoms, hung heuvy
on the morning's breeze, then would
we olimb the road that led towards the
river, breaking off across a meadow
I tenanted with picturesque sbnggv West
Highland cuttle, their backs sinning
ins it wore wilh hoar frost.so thick wus
i tho dew, until at length the river bank
was reached. The memory of the
sceno by the river fills my heart to
Badness; my poor pen would commit
sucrilege in attempting to describe it.
Sulfice that the Awe is one of the
loveliest rivers in that garden of The
Almighty, the West Highlands.
*3 Duncan was a kecu and expert angler ;
also a rough, hut practical Hy dresser.
Of course the fish received their proper amount of attention from us, and
we invariably had better success than
our friends. Put we had other things
ill common besides fishing. Duncan,
though no soholar, hungered for books.
His oppreoiativeness was marvellous.
Pegiuniug with Burns and Scott we
drifted iuto Carlisle nnd onco for
nearly threo weeks wo spout nt least
half our time over "Heroes uud hero
Then I inveigled him into Tennyson ;
he learned by heart some of the lines
ol the "Jlorto d'Arlhur." Even
now I can hear his deep but gentle
voice reciting ;
"The   old   order   chuiigetli.     yielding
plaoe to new
And   God    fulfils  Himself  in  many
to the aooompanymont of the song of
the throstle and the lark,
"Man! But that's flue." he would
always end with.
Then after an early dinner we would
bio back lo (he river again and snatch
an hour's fun with the sea trout. When
black night hud set her shadows on the
deep silent pools, always shunned by
lho angler in the sunlight, then would
lho sea trout ris.i merrily to tho fly.
Ir wns weird work ousting iuto the
black waters at random, tho whish of
tin' line and gentle tightening of the
rod 'on alono signalling thnt the cast
was straight and true; then would
come a sharp tug; the water shone
phosphorescent in the silver moonlight
tt here broken by the struggles of the
lively sea trout ; then tho death struggle; and Duncan would lean over tho
locks and peer into the moonlit depths
finally bringing in in tho net a silvery
beauty. Put I must turn to tho closing scene. One late autumu I was
staying near Obun and happened tn
meet 111 that town mine host of tho
Tay-n'uilt hotel. Duncan was dying
he told me; a severe attack of influenza
had completely broken him down and
he was now but awaiting the end. He
had asked repeatedly for me, and,
having heard that I wus in the neighborhood, bad sent a message to me by
some friend, (I nover roceived the
I returned with the landlord to Tay-
n'uilt that day hut I was too late.
Some hours before my arrival the gentle spirit had passed the bourn from
which no traveller returns. Duncan
camo from Loch Aber, a district near
the western ostremity of the Caledonian Canal. Il seemed that his message to me was a request fo furnish a
little money sufficient to tako his hotly
to Loch Aber, and also to pay for some
musses for his soul (for Duncan, like
the majority of the Loch Aber folk,
was of u family thut had (dung to the
oil faith). It was late in the year;
the first snow had already fallen and it
wns with dilliculty tbat we carried
lout my friend's request as to the disposal of his body. Wo took him in a
bout down Loch Etivo uud the littlo
"With onr and sail
Moved from the brink, liko some  full
breasted swan"
until we reached a village further in-
lund. From there we carried him
in n rough cart over tho hill side to
Fort William in Loch Aber where we
placed him to rest in the burying
ground near tho Roman Catholic
Chin oh there,
Slnll 1 ovor forget that journey ovor
the mountain? It took us somo five
hours. Silently we trudged over the
mossy mountain load sparsely flecked
with snow, patches-ol purple heather
now and then showing through tho
thin white sheet covering the hills,
marking where tho snow hud drifted.
Then as wo descended the hill we
left the snow and wero in a brown
and purple carpeted moor: below us
the river Looby winded until it joined
the sen. Par in the distance wo could
seo the lower portion of Pen Nevis,
the summit being wreathed iu clouds.
The red sun sank lower, lighting
with his glow the distant hills of
Mull in the West so that they seemed
'.0 be in a molten sen of fire. Then
gradually he glided to rest behind the
mount litis, tbe sky deepened from oar-
mine to purple, and it wus evening. I
could not help likening the setting sun
to my dear friend,for.glorious as it was
in the heavens,yet. when it had sank, the
reflection was still more gorgeous than
when it was still with us. And
Duncan, though he had gone from our
sight, yet left with us lho memory of
a pure, genuine and loving character,
a memory, which is to my mind more
soul-inspiring und healthier than any
Ber mon.
It is one of life's ironies that when-
1 ver a soul meets with one of its own
kindred. Ihe thread of life is divided
between them all  too soon.    Iu onr
journey through this world we
delay l'i r a few moments in some
cninvunM-rni, whore we meet a traveler whom, wo suddenly remember,
we have searched for from yoar to
year. Then sweet intercourse is held;
wo are entranced, and yearn for n
more pi rfect knowledge ot that mind
���hat would seem to blend so with our
own OS fo form one harmonious whole.
Presently nil unawares, tho grim
spoiler steps in und the companion is
wrested from us. Whither goes he?
Pure wo assert wo know.' At tho
best we can hut conjecture. And
some of us aro so wonk thut wo are
templed to live for thut day only,
flinging all reason to tho four winds,
as the old Persian tent-maker Omar

in Spokane the othor day said :
"The mines will probably be shut
down for a time. I expect to shut
down tho Miller Creek and Wonderful with others until some agreement
in reached so wo may know what to depend upon. This eight-hour law was
uot asked for by the miners nor the
mine owners. It was passed at tho request of some Coeur d'Aleue agitators,
whn are up in that country. Any reasonable miner would prefer to work
10 hours por day and got $li. 50, to
working eight and receiving $3. I
would rather pay the 0 hour scale
than the lower one. Of all the men in
my employ, I do not think there is one
who is in favor of tho new eight-hour
"Concerning the Wonderful aud Miller Creek, Mr. Davis reports development proceeding Btenriily. Tlio crosscut tunnel on the Miller Creek is in
about 210 feet aud making good headway toward the vein. The upper tunnel on the vein has passed through ore
continuously for 14G feet to where a
break was encountered and after some
development there the ore body was
again found aud is being followed. On
the Wonderful work has stopped at
the point where tho cached ore was
recently found, it being so neai the
surface that water comes in too freely
to permit of more work there until
the spring thaw is over. Tlie cross-cut
tunnel on the Wouderful is in 6'
feet, and a raise is being made on
stringer of galena in order to determine the strike of the vein from which
the stringer is supposed to lead.'"
