npinents in this district.
Au official dispatch,recording a skirmish near Belmont, in which Colonel
Falconer was killed,three other officers
wounded and two privates slightly
wounded, is far from clear. It ifl not
known whether Colonel Falconer
was preparing for a British advance or
was merely endeavoring to ascertain
the number of the Boers. It is considered somewhat remarkable tbat
four of the six casualties should have
happened to officers and this is thought
to need some explanation. The British lost n good mau in Colonel Falconer, who was a cousin of the Earl of
Kintore. He had seen service in the
Soudan under General Kitchener from
the Dongola expedition to tho capture
of Berber. Nothing has filtered through
today from Ladysinitb, which everybody expects to be the theater of thrilling events during the coming week.
Loudon, Nov. 11.���As each day aud
each week of tho war draws to a close
without a decisive action at Lady
smith, the probability that the Boers
will risk an assault upon that garrison
becomes, it is said, more and more imminent. Iu fact it is claimed that tho
campaign seems to have reached a stage
where it is absolutely necessary for the
Bncrs to deliver a telling stroke. Unless they decide to do this their only
alternative is to retire within their
own lines and strengthen themselves
against the impending onslaught bv
superior numbers. That tho latter
course will be followed without making a determined attempt to oust or
capture Ueneral While, seems beyond
all reason, for the methodical isolation of Ueneral White's force indicates

great moral ell'ctin persuading them
to risk much ngainst Ladysmith. but
now it is too late for ihem to change
the main objective. Mobile as are the
Boers they could scarcely transfer
the body of tWir forces, whioh ure at
present concentrated about Ladysmith,
to any other vulnerable British point,
without running the risk of enountor
ing superior numbois which were daily
pouring northwards. Moreover, any
weakening of tho Boer force at Ladysmith would   give  General   White
splendid opportunity of attacking, and, I contributions to the controversy

tal, for while it is still perfectly feasible to srn.1 reinforcements to General

would greatly retard the progress even
Ot minor re-inforcoments, w'lile it
would much moro seriously affect the

proportions. However, there is no reason to believe Ladysmith has not a
good chance to withstand the most determined Boer attacks. Genera]
White's ability to hold his own until
now, and the reported successes which
has crowned his sorties have done
much to restore confidence in him.
If General Buller continues to send
transports to Durban and disembark
troops there General Win to will only
havo to wait about a fortnight beforo
ho is reinforcod, or at any rato bofore
the reinforcements oreate a diversion
of the Bojr force.
But it is impossible to be sure when
the troops will disembark on account
of the idiosyncrasies of the transports,
several of wliich have developed a remarkable penchant for breaking down,
or discovering after leaving port that
their hull, boilers or other essentials
wero worthless. Among the critics,
tbo most dieaded possibility is that
Ueneral White may succumb to the
pettiness ol personal inclination which
n the history Of Iho world, has often
Influenced the actions of the greatest
generals, On this score, naval aud
military records say.

of view, doubtful eit'orts to hold the
neck of Natal. But even thou it is
admitted that no general should be exonerated in history merely because he
allowed his actions to be hampered by
n civil government to which he was
not directly responsible. Naturally
there is a great deal of discussion on
these points.    One of the most   human
tren
chant in   its   simplicity,  comes  from
Admiral Dowell who writes :
"I am a sailor and do not pretend
to give an opinion on the merits of the
case, though my feeling is that Gen.
!eral White bus done a difficult duty
I well. Of one thing, apparently there
cau be no doubt, namely that Sir
Ueorge White has proved himself to
be a gallant and chivalrous general."
This blufl' tribute voices perhaps
more than any criticism the feeling of
the nation. The official feeling is, that
Ladysmith is not in as great peril as
last week, which emanates entirely
from the partially renewed confidence
in White and the lack of bud news.
This applies equally to Mafeking,Kimberley and other points. Tbe popular
impression is now that Ladysmith will
not fall into tho hands of tho Boers.
A REMARKABLE INNOVATION.
It is learned by tho Associated Press
that 0119 of tho most remarkable innovations in warfare will shortly be tested in South Africa. Lieutenant Folkes.
an officer of the engineers, sailed for
Capetown on Octo'jnr 11, to put pho-
teigraphy to uses hitherto considered
impracticable, which, if successful,
will revolutionize tho methods of military reeonnaisance. Briefly Folkes'
proposition is to indicate the exact
position and formation of the Boers by
means of the telephoty pictures. He
takes out an equipment of his own invention, mid is attached to General
Buller's stoff.

W. J. BRYAN ON   THE ELECTION
Seems Still Confident of  the Anti-Imperialistic Cause.
Lincoln, Nob., Nov, 11.--William ,I
Bryan, this evening gave   the press an
extended  statement   summing up the
results of the elections in the different
states.    It concludes as follows:
"Taken as a whole, the election returns from all the states give encouragement to those who hope for the
overthrow of the Republican party in
1900. It is evident that those who believed in tbe Chicago platform in lKOii
still believe in it. It is also evident
that the hostility to the Chicago platform among those who opposed it is
uot as pronounced as it was in ISDH.
It is apparent also that this a growing hostility to tbe^monopolios which
have grown up under Republican administration. It is safe to say .that
the American people will be a pronounced majority against the attempt
to raise the standing army to 1110,000,
and it is equally certain that upon a
direct vote upon the issue a large majority of the peonle would pronounce
against the Imperialistic policy which
would develop a colonial system afrer
the pattern ofj'European Governments.
If the rebuke administered to the Re-
publioiiU party at tbe polls had been
more severe, rhe prospeot of remedial
legislation at the bands of Republicans wonld be brighter. While it was
sufficient to indicate that the neople
ate not satisfied with the Republican
policy, it. may not havo beeu sufficient
ro stay the course of the Republican
party toward plutocracy and toward
the European idea of government bniit
upon force, rather than upon the consent of tho governed, a government
relying for its safety upon a large
Btanding army, rutber than upon a
citizen soldierv."

Kelson ns tho commercial capital of
tho Kootenays giTes evidence today of
greater progress and prosperity than
perhaps auy other nit* iu the Province.
A few brief years ago the townsite
proper was in" dispute, and as a result
squatters, shacks disfigured the landscape on all sides, but once the town-
site question was settled and the town
incorporated, nn ern of prosperity set |
in which has continued nnintermpt-
edly. Geographically situated as Nelson is. she must continue to lie the
great distributing point of Kootenny,
and indeed the Boundary Country generally. With two systems of railway
giving a regular daily service, the assurance that the connecting link with
the main lino of tho Glow's Nest Pass
road will be completed in the very near
future, aud an ever increasing fleet
of steamers plying on the lake between
this and outlying points, there is nothing to check the steady growth of the
City. Nor must the rich mineral resources of the district bo overlooked in
estimating the great future of the inland oapital. The more our surrounding creeks and mountains aro explored,
tho more completely is their richness
established, so that it^is only a matter
of time till wo shall have a few more
Silver Kings, Athabasoas, Poortnans,
Ferns and Exchequers.
It has been officially announced that
Nelson is to be made a divisional point
on tho G. P. R. The importance of
the city has thus received the recognition of the big national railway company, and when the 0. P. R. indentify
themselves conspicuously witb unv
community it is always taken for
granted that there is u highly remunerative trade in view.
The movements of the grout banking
institutions of the country are also
taken as uu unfailing trade barometer, and from this point of view, the
oommeroial importance of Nelson is
fully recognized.
Tha*- the merchants of the city have
confldonce in the fuMiro of Nolson, is
testified to unmistakably hy the number of substantial stono and brick
blocks already erected as well as the
number now being built A wholesome competition seems to prevail as
to who shull have tbe most substantial,
ornamental and oommoflions place uf
business. Not is this competition
confined tn business blocs; it is aisn
agreeably apparent m residential quarters. -A oitj owning i's own water-

of Halifax is   in substantial   quarters,
while tho two other financial concerns
will no doubt   be   1'oroed   to build   or
move into more  commodious premises
iu the near future, owing  to  enlarged
business.
WHOLESALE HOUSES.
Nolson being, as already pointed out,
a most favored distributing point,
ber wholesale houses aro numerous'
and the volume of business done by
these establishments would be a surprise, to many who have not an opportunity of seeing the busy packing departments md the ever active freighters. Among the wholesale houses are
tho following:
Messrs. Turner, Beeton & Co., A.
Macdonald & Co., Kootenay Supply
Co., Braekman & Kor Milling Co.,
H. J. Evans & Co., Parson's Produce
Co., Manitoba Produce Co., Hudson's
Bay Co., (wholesalo aud retail),
California Wine Co., F, R. Stewart
& Co., John Y. Griffiths, &. Co., Geo.
F. Motiou, J. Clioklitoh & Go. There
are several large firms represented here
by agents, Buoh as R. P. Rithet &
Co., of Victoria, whose local agent is
A. B. Gray. Among the wholesalo
houses might also be classed P. Burns
& Go., and the West Kootenay Butcher

Houston Block, one of the finest buildings   in the city,   now   receiving  its
finishing touches), Fred  Irvine & Co
an old esi bli ha 1 com ei i, nud A.Ferland, Rho has rscentlj   imnoved ti

his stock in Nolson, anil    Brown Bins.
There are a number of small establish
ments   handling   dry   goods,  but  tho
above  named firms take  the loud, and
carry an immense  and   varied  supply
in every department.
CLOTHIERS   AND   FURNISHERS.
The principal houses in this line are
those of James A. Gilker, one of the
pioneer concerns of Nelson, the Wallace & Miller Go., Ltd ; J. F. Weir.
Brown & Co., Emory & Walloy aud
Thoe. Madson. As iu the caso of dry
goods, there are others who handle this
branch, but those named aro establishments which would be a credit to
any town.
MERCHANT TAILORS,
The merchant tailor business Is well
represented by F.J. Squire, E.J Robie,
H. M. Vincent, and H. Thomas
Dodson. There is also n ladies tailoring establishment conducted by Mrs.
Stearns.
BOOTS AND SHOES.
Lillio Bros, have one of tho finest
boat and shoe stores in the Province
and carry a stock excelled by none.
S. Neelands has also a very fine establishment fully supplied in every de-
partment, These aro the two leading
houses in their line but' thore ure several others dealing iu boots aud shoes,
as well us piaciical shoemakers���A.
Mnslonka, Hugh MoCausland, etc.
MILLINER'S.
While some of the dry poods stores
handle millinery, there are a eonnle of
establishments which confine their attention to this branch almost exclusively. Mrs. McLaughlin is ono ol
these. She curries a large and varied
stoc^ as does nl��o Miss MoDermntt

This bmach of business is also represented by 0. B. Jacobson nnd the Dominion Foto Go. also by F. J.Pay 11 ton
GROCERIES    AND    PROVISIONS.
As for grocery and provision stores,
they aro strongly in evidence. The
competition, however, is not too keen
to render business otherwise than profitable. Nelson is essentially a residential
town, and not alone have tho giooers
to look after the purely local wants,
but tho demand from the various mining camps, etc., keep thera busy. M.
DesBrisay & Co, have one of the largest and best furnished stores in the
country. It is metropolitan in its get
up, whilo ninny of the other grocery
and provision establishments here
enumerated are worthy of a community much larger than Nelson. The
Hudson Bay Co., who do a very largo
retail business, nre having a splondid
fire proof building erected for their
trade, whioh will be in keoping with
the splendid business blocks, which
thi'   -well   estabhuhed   company  have

BRICK YARDS.

BARBERS.
No man need be without a shave in
Nelsou���if he has 26 cents in liin

principal shops uro : MathSBOn & Gra-

ASSA'SERS.
There are but two assayers in town,

Iu the mnlter of hotel accommoda-

NELSON. B. O.
Tho Americans' latest ambassador
to St. James's, Mr. Cboato, has fallen
captive to the British, likn his predecessors. Less than n vear previous to
bin appointment, Mr. Ohoato had none
but bitter things to say of Great Britain ; now he is locked arms with
the whole British nation and declaring that Americans aro proud of
their relationship. Thus it happens
to all of them. An American has only
*o go over to England, and study tbe
people there and see lor himself that
the United Stutes is not tho only country in the world, to get his prejudices
rubbed off. As fast as they go over
they cease to bo Americans only and
expand into Anglo-Saxons. Nearly
half a century ago Oliver Wendell
Holmes said that good Americans,
when they died, went to Paris. That
is changed now. In these days good
Americans, whou they die, go to London.
Telephone  No.  144.
SIGNS OF DISTRESS.
Under an entirely new condition of
things, brought about by forces and
influences for which the mine owners
are in 110 way responsible, a new
scale of wages became necessary, and
because the miners will accept nothing less than the old wage under the
old conditions a writer in a local paper
siys they have been looked out and
this supposed situation is made the
subject of a long article. It is one of
the most extraordinary contributions
that have yet appeared, the writer
begging with amazing assuranos every
question that has been matter for dispute. It is worth while to notice some
of his statements, if only to show how
far it is possible to carry unreason.
It is said that hundreds of miners
are forced to leave tbe country and seek
employment elsewnere, because of the
shameful conduct of the mine owners
in refusing to offer moro than three
dollars for eight hours' work. Why
forced? Is the miner starving who
gets eighteen dollars a week? In nine
cases out of ten he has no one to provide for bnt himself. If he cannot live
011 eighteon dollars a week, and make
a comfortable provision for the rainy
day besides, there is something seriously wrong with him. The man who
runs away from eighteen dollars a
week is not suffering for the want of
work, aud the attempt to bold him up
as an object of compassion is a very
silly one. Another statement is to the
effect that the miners are not the best
judges as to their physical endurance,
and it was on this account their day's
work was regulated for them. Poor,
innocent miners. Thej never know
when they nre tired, and out of pity
for them those two wise aud experienced laborers, Mr.Huma and Mr. Cotton,
decide for them how many hours a day
they can work without endangering
their health. They are expected to
shut their eyes and open their mouths,
and take whatever is given to them by
tho politicians in Victoria, who k*iow
more about mining than the miners
themselves. One is. in some doubt
whether to call this simplicity or im-
becilit..
We are told the Government were justified in   stepping   in  to  make   eight
hours the regulation   day,   because  iu
doing so they were onlv putting tliem

as precedent or example foi the leg.s-
lation that has unsettled the mining
industry of tho Province, and provoked
angry contentiou and conflict where
before was harmony.
Theso are only a few of the long
string of gems that is mado to servo as
adornment to a cartoon so coarse that
every person of right feeliug in the
City must reguid it with disgust, and
so ubsuid and inappropriate as to excite
general ridicule. We should hope that
sell-respecting miners themselves
wonld be the first and loudest to express their disapproval, for a cause
that is made to depend on the suppoit
of such arguments and pictorial illus
trillions is certain to invite   suspicion.
'Our loyalty is liberty," sings Mr.
Francis Hurt iu a poem entitled "Unfurl tho Flag." We do not know who
Mr. Francis Hart is but the semi-
meut of this lust hue of his peora does
oredit to both his feeling and understanding. Freedom is the key-note
throughout the Queen's dominions, ard
it is because we aro free and secure in
our freedom that wo aro loyal.
"Free   speech, free   press, free  faith,
free trade,
In all alike our Ian 1 is free;
In freedom is onr Queen obeyed,
Our lovalty is liberty !
Unfurl tbe flag that M may see
The emblem of a people free. "
COMMUNICATIONS.
THE CITY WHARF.
Editor Miner:
Sir���The present condition of our
City wharf is not only a disgrace, but
a serious danger to the lives aud prop-
city of the citizens; and the delays
caused by its defects interfere greatly
with the general business   of tbe City
Winter is now approaching, and the
dangers and difficulties are daily becoming greater.
What is the use of a Board of Trade
which allows this state of things to
exist without protest''
The importance ot Nelson as a business centre demands a permanent
structure which should be wortliy of
the metropolis of the Kootenays; and
tbe powers that be should remember
that the Oity having taken over the
wharf, are responsible for its condition, and now liable for any losses
which may occur owing to its defective state. Trusting you will bring
this matter to the notice of wur readers, I remain, sir, vours faithfully.

An effort is made to extricate Mr.
Hume from the unpleasant predicament into which he got himself by his
declaration regarding the Italians, but
it is too clumsy to be of the least use.
"Mr. Hume," it is said, "is too well
posted to Bay that the Oovernment intended to bring in legislation that
would place Italians ou an oquality
with Chineso as workers in mines."
It was not represented that Mr. Humo
said anything of Ihe sort. The intention of the Government was not in
question; the reference was exclusively
to Mr. Hume's own wishes and sentiments in the matter, and ou these
points he left nothing to the imagination, but declared that it was not his
fault tbo Italians were not placed on
the same level with the Chinese. How
well he is ''posted' we may judge
from the statement itself

AT DAWSON CITY
ENFORCING THE SUNDAY CLOSING
LAW THERE.
Tho Ruuli to  Capo Nome   Relieves the
Citj of Its Superfluous
Population.
Mr. John Parsons, of the Parsons'
Prodnce Co., is paying Nelson a business visit. He hns just returned from
Dawson City, where his company have
a. lirnnoh establishment, Mr. Parsons
reports that Dawson is an exceptionally orderly plncti���of course taking into account that it is a mining camp
nnd mie so far removed from tho ordinary haunts of men.
"Every Saturday night at 12
o'clock," said Mr. Parsons to a Miner
reporter, "the saloons, hotel bars, music halls, and wherever liquor is sold,
are closed, and in Dawson Oity a man
could not get a drink, on Sunday, unless, iirieed.he had it in his own room.
The police enforce the law there, and
well the fellows who favor a wide-
opou town know it. If Dawson were
mi the American ' side, I believe it
would be a ver.v  hot spot."
" i.s   tbo   gold   output   improving?'
was asked.
"I think so," replied Mr. Parsons.
"There is a large quantity of mining
machinery going into Ihe country, and
general activity prevails. The hc,f hes
aro turning out bettor than was ever
expected Before i left thorn were 1,200
or l.UDO men stated for Onpe3 Nome,
nnd this got away with the surplus
population. Among those departing
was a lot. of tin hour gamblers and
variety show girls. The general impression is that there will lien great
shortage of fuel thero I his winter. The
steamer Alpha was the last to leave
Victoria foi the (Jape wilh coal. Somo
doubt if she will ever get there. 1 have
net heard anything of her since she
left. I met Hani Barber, her owner, in
Victoria, before I loft the Coast, and I
believe he expents to sell the conl nt
SltJO per ton. The Alpha carried 8,000
tons, and will probably use a thousand
tons on her trip. However 8,000 tons
at $100 per ton is not a bad speculation. I did not hear much about the
Cape, but ninny think that its richness
is niiioh exaggerated. Tho men who
left Dawson for the Cape weie s.nall
men���that is thoy did not take much
money with them. The banks suy
that they had not drawn on thorn to
any^ extent." Asked if the present
representatives of the Government
were popular, Mr. Parsons replied in
the affirmative, adding that thero was
great indignation felt at the withdrawal of Mr. Steele. A meeting
wa�� held at Dawson to petition the
Government to re instate him, when
it beoarae known that he was removed-
Mr. Parsons hns a good opinion of
the Yukon country generally, and says
lie nut .Vliinitnlnins there who declared
that they prefer a winter" in Dawson
to a winter iu Manitoba.
FOOTBALL.
Tho Stars vs. the   Non-Stars���Juniors
Play.
The football season   was  opened   in
Nelson   by   two   juvenile   teams���the
Stars and the Non-Stars.    The   Stars,
it may be stated ut the outset knocked
the  planets���no,    tho   Non-Stars���out
iu a twinkle.    Association rules   governed the game, which was played >��� ith
great, spirit throughout, and  with   order too���except now   and   again when
a little dispute arose us to whether the
ball   passed   between   the    imaginary
goal-posts.    The captains were Gallons

The stone steps were yesterday placed
in position on the now  bnilding of the
Hudson's Buy Co.
There were two penitent drunks up
in police cnurt yesterday morning, who
were fined |ij 60 and $5 respeotivoly.
The Kokanee will ruako an extra
barge trip from Kootenay Lauding today to relieve the accumulation of
freight,
Settlors near Rover Creek are complaining that a band of Colville Indians has located tbere, und is killing
oil' the deer.
Mr. Thomas Madden expects to have
his big brick building roofed in within the next few days, so that the interior woik may bo done undercover.
At tho residence of Mr. .lohn Lan-
gridgo, yesterday, Mr. John Moffat and
Miss Margaret Jane Steol were married, Rev. Robert Frew olliciating.
Foreman Hackshaw, and brother,
with Messrs. Dan Jobuson, A. Johnson, and J. Riley were visitors in the
City last night, from the Athubasca.
A striking proof of the growth of tin'
country is afforded by the fact that
the (.'.P. R. is hauling three times as
much freight into West Kontenay as
they were tbis time three yeaiB ago.
Work is progressing favorably on
the new road which is to connect the
city with the main thoroughfare to tho
Nelsnn & Fort Sheppard Railway. In
a couple of days more it will bo open
for trallio.
It ia reported   that   the entrance  to
the City pounrl is blocked by gas pipes
and that for the   time   being, the services of the poLiitl   keeper   are   of  no
avail.
The Parsons' Produce Co., have contracted with P. Burns 6; Co., for the
supply of seven cars of poultry, six of
which are to he delivered before
Christmas.
Mr. Fradgley, until this week book-
keeper at the Ymir mine, has received
a promotion, being sent to Greewood
to mauage a property owned by the
company in that district.
Kirkpatrick ic Wilson are preparing
for a big lot of crockery, chiua. ami
glassware, which they are expecting
daily. The consignment includes some
of the newest patterns and designs.
The C. P. R. freight shed is a busv
looking spot these davs. An unusually large amount of freight is being
handled Yesterday there were three
cars of eggs to he dealt with and one
car of butler, in addition to the usual
miscellaneous freight.
The City wharf is in a very dangerous condition. The planks are badlv
smashed iu in several places, and after dark teamsters ure afraid to drive
their Iltsos over it. A little judicious
expenditure just now might save a lot
of trouble aud possibly expensive litigation.
The City Engineer is laying a sewer
nt the rear of Hoover street, between
Stanley and Ward street-. He looks
as if iie would rather a enntraotor hnd
die job in baud. Gnmbo may, or tuaj
not bo a valuutde commodity, hut it
certainly is provmg a detriment to
sewerage construction, ami is being

Notes f, Healthy Tone on 'Change.
London, Oct. 21.���Now that an easy
tendency has been apparent in the
mining market dnring the past week,
aud the favorable news from South
Africa in consequence of the British
victories, the various markets have
had a good rise. Tbe Industrial market has bten firm, although the public
are still holding back. Tho various
investments are about the same as my
last letter to you. Iu the Cyole market more activity has been the feature
and in consequence prices are harder.
In the beer line, Allsopp's have been
the feature in this section ou the successful starting of  lager beer business.
Iu the Home Rail department some
of tho lines have come in to tavor
again but with little or no advance.
In the American market easy money in
Wall street bus again been n favorable
factor as regards this market. The
efforts of the Bears to depress quotations has hi en successful, and a strong
tendency has been maintained through-
rat the woek. There havo been various rumors of coming amalgamations
of some of the Vanderbilt lines, which
have acted as a support, aud tlio publication of the first favorable bank
statements would doubtless give the
market a further important fillip.
The Transvaal trouble has no longer
any marked influence, which is uot
surprising, in view of the fact that
\menean railroad Interests cannot he
prejudicially affected uy the campaign
now in progress during the past week,
while, on the other hand, the London
favorites are likely to come into special notice on the news of tin, Britisl
,, ....
In iii;- Canadian market, Canadian
Pacifies have had a good trallio increase, to which tne stock bus responded by a modeiate improvement and they
are now quoted at fla3-.;. Grand
Trunks first are quoted 85 ex-dividend.
The South American market has not
shared in the strength shown by the
rest of the other markers aud stands
about the same. In the West Australian market there has been a good deal
of fluctuation during tho past week,
and under cover of various unfounded
rumors the Bears indulged iu more
bear raids, Lake View Consols being
chiefly attacked. The boom which
developed yesterday in the South Africa market also tended to restrict business in these shines. London ic
Globes have also fluctuated a good deal
and aro firmer again. Thu dividend
of ��2 per share was all that had been
looked for by those in the know, aud
created a favorable impression in
showing that the company possessed
large cash resources besides other
valuable assets. There has been very
little doing in the market for British
Columbian shares, and Le Roi alone
show a fractional improvement nnd
are quoted at ��6X4. British American
Corporation are lower aud stand about
par. Among the other shares Hall
Mines are quoted 8-8 to a J.j, Velvets 1 to a j;,, War Eagle ).Ito 5-8,
Ymir, 1 ton '|, and Duucau Mines,
1 to a Ji.
In the Kaffir market the British vic-
toiies have produced quite a boom, and
large Investment buying has been in
evidence, and every temporary setback has been seized upon us an opportunity to get in. Thero has been a
good deal of selling for foreign account
but this has been considerably moro
than offset by the large British purchasers. Tho speculative shares, as
usual, have led the improvement,
Kaud Mines being now ��39; last week
they were ��112. Cons. Gold Fields
have improved to ��1%, and East
Raud's to ��?l.{. Randfonteius aie ��8,
with every prospect of improving; in
tact nearly all the gilt edged shares
have improved.
The various copper mining shar, s
have upon the whole shown a steady
tendency.    Copper now stands at   ��76.

They     Bloom      Hlii-n      Everything
Around Them Ia Ice Laden.
Tbe witch hazel Is common In damp
woods nil over the United States, and its
peculiarity of producing flowers in the
autumn is the same irrespective of climates. From the shores of Lake Michigan south, the bushy, many angled little
tree will clothe Itself in light yellow
flowers after the leaves hav�� fallen from
all the trees of the forest surrounding it,
and although Gray and Wood are good
authorities, and both say, in their botanies, that "the witch hazel blooms from
November to January," observation has
shown the writer that tha blooms begin
to open in September, before the leaves
are cast. In October the leaves fall and
still more flowers appear, and in November every leaf will have been stripped
from tbe tree and the full flush of blooms
will clothe the branches from end to end.
The flowers are perfect, or merely polygamous, and in clusters on the curiously
and sharply angled branches, and the
stamens and petals show plainly how
they are inserted iu Hie calyx. Now, after
November the stamens appear deadened,
but tho petals retain their golden hue,
which is the reason our botanist! have
for saying it blooms till January.
By a right combination of circumstances tho witch hazel iu yellow blooms
will bo covered with suow and ice, when
the holly side by side with it is bright
with berries. Until after January the
flowers cling to the leafless branches, and
then another curious phenomenon appears. At this stage the fruit, or seed, is
edible nnd hangs on the branches until
spring. The little fruit cousists of on
oblong, woody case, about half an inch
iu length, inclosing two hard nutlets
somewhat resembling the seeds of an apple. These seeds are expelled with a
snapping sound, nnd any oue curious to
witness the phenomenon may stand near
the witch hazel on a warm, dry, sunny
day and see It sow its seeds. The case
splits nearly to the base, and alter the
seeds have been sent bounding the appearance of tho seed cases Is like the
wide open mouth of a serpent. It Is an
interesting experiment to cut the
branches with the embryo fruit aud help
ihem iu a warm room uutil tho expulsion
sends the seeds bouncing about.���Ylck's

Ho Drore the Tootlinche Awitr With
ft Hammer nnd Nails.
"I ran across a strange freak iu a small
town Iu South Carolina," said a returned
traveler the other night. "Tho town was
small and lacked many of the improvements aud things really needed. Oue afternoon I had a violent toothache, and
there was no dentist about to offer me relief. The pain was agonizing. It was
new to me. I wandered about and drifted to the lone drug store ami asked tho
druggist for some old pain killer. He
gave a sickly grin aud said he didn't have
a thing in the shop.
" 'I can stop tho paiu all right, though,'
he told me, aud I promptly offered him
$5 if he would.
"The man took me to a porch at the
rear of the store and called to n boy for
hammer and nails. I got huffy at this
cull, for I thought the guy had gone mad
and was going to punch out my painful
grinder, but he assured mo that ho would
not touch me. He went to a post, which
looked as if it already had 1,000,000 nails
in it,aud wrote four letters���'A, C, H, E.'
" 'Now, just watch me,' he said, 'and
think of what I am doing.'
"With that he took a hammer nnd began driving a tenpenny nail. He gave
fancy licks. When the nail was driven,
he gave the same sickly grin and asked
about the pain. 'Still there,' I said, and
then he took the nail and soon had the
letter 'C covered. By that time the pain
was disappearing, though I would uot
admit it. The quack continued to hammer until the last nail was gone, and, on
my word, tho pain had disappeared. I
waited a few moment! for it to return,
but it did not, nnd up to this day the
tooth is Round. The druggist did not
WftBt t�� accept the $.">, but 1 insisted.
"Talking to the man afterward, he told
me that he cured hundreds of cases of
: toothache for people .around the Inclose,
as the driven nails could show. The negroes were the moat frequent cullers, and
none of them had to pay. It all seems
strange and funny, and I cannot talk for
the others, but that man cured my toothache by the simple remedy of the hammer aud nails."

"One ot! tha strangest incidents tbnt 1
ever witnessed," remarked Colonel Lyle,
"occurred iu Camden, S. C."
"How was that, colonel?" Interposed
a Gazette reporter, and tho crowd drew
their chips nearer.
"It was this way," continued the colonel. "Several years ago, while I was In
that city, a gentleman arrived at the
hotel there early one morning and while
making some requests of the landlord,
who rented the hotel, received n very
short reply, Thereupon he Inquired ns to
who owned the hotel. After receiving
the information he went out and succeeded in finding the owner nnd actually
paid $10,000 for the building, and in
loss than three hours returned to the
hotel with tho keys and a deed to the

the remark that 'if tho hotel could not be

"Coy baggage" seems to apply uot
merely to the modest and retiring maid,
or "girl," as we should now say, but
rather to om, who made pretense of
modesty, using it us an additional weapon of offense and as a new snare wherewith to decoy men Into the net of her
charms, for the expression infers considerable personal charm. Where the
assumed modesty is unsupported by personal charm and where the assumption
is uot, ns it were, licensed by youth,
"coy" becomeB "sly," wliich Is not so
nice, nnd the "coy baggage," grown old
enough to know better, becomet a "sly

UN EKING WOUNDED
Cries of Pain From Stricken Soldiers
ai'9 Very Unusual.
"In Egypt, India and tho Transvaal
and Zululand, I have at various times
seen quite fifty msn who were closo by
mo struck down ; but the non-military
reader who fanoles that tne wounded
shriek, or even commonly groan, is
absolutely in error.''
The speaker, now a cashier with n
great firm of solicitors, was formerly n
sergeant of the line, ami he sporis
many medals nud clasps, H, was bilking to a* I'ontiituti r alu ut the prest nt
war, and ha went on: "Many of the
men who have been hit seriously with
bullets have told ne either that thev
felt in thing bnt a slight bi ruing sen-
satiou, -n' the sensation ol being bit
with a blunt instrument like �� club,
ail- that they scarcely realised thnt

���inkl of tohaeco in Ins month ; he never
said a word besides, except, 'I am
hit !' .It may be that Britons hate any
thing like theatrical display ; anyhow,
I havo never heard anything liken sentimental speech or a dykg message
from u wounded man, unless one read
between the lines and looked beneath
tho surface of tho actual words. On
the contrary, I have over and over
again hoard mon, upon whose foreheads the awfnl sweat of agony was
oven gathering,and who were olenohing
then teeth and hands with suffering,
joko with an apparent show of heartiness. In Zululand, a man of the 24th
who had been mortally wounded by an
old-fashioned musket ball of some
kind, wns offering to bet drinks and
rations that the bullet had never been
mouldod that oould settle liini,#nnd he
broke out into a feeble rendering of a
music hall duty of that time, 'I'm not
dead vet, not dead yet���I may bo very
groggy, bnt I'm not doad yet,' and ho
fell buck dead directly afterwards.
"There is no doubt that wounded
soldiers intentionally say and do commonplace things in order to hide their
feelings, and in tbe last Afghan war
there was a sorgeant who, mortally
wounded and wniting his tnru with
the surgeons took a pack of cards out
of liis tunic and began to piny 'Patience,'   This Incident traveled right
through the British army, and I know
men who saw it.
"I havo many a time heard men
moio seriously wounded, and who afterwards clied shout out some 'catch'
expression���such as 'Mind the step'-���to
their comrades who wore still lighting. A man in the same reuiniuiit
with myself, aud who was wounded in
sueh a way that ho afterwards died,
shouted oot to n comrade, who was a
bit of a butt, dnring the height of n
hot finht in Afghanistan : 'Make faces

A FIGHT FOR SUPREMACY.
At the presont moment the Indian
indigo planters felly recognize the danger to which their industry is exposed
by the introduction of this prodini'
(artifieial dyes from Germany). If the
artificial indigo can bo produced at a
lower price than the natural indigo,
then the Indian indigo trado will gradually oeaso to exist. Speaking as n
chemist, the success of such an artifle
iul product must bo looked|upon as n
great and glorious achievement, but
ono cannot help wishing that tho price
of such n victory was not so great; for
the miu of the indigo plantations cannot be othorwiso regarded than as a
national calamity whioh may have
tho most far reaching coniequeuoei.���
Feilden's Magazine,
FUNNY LAWS   FOR BOYS.
Perhaps the most remarkable uf all
laws made for boysj] exists in Heligoland,a little island about a mile across,
which England gnvn to Germany nine
years ago in exchange for some laud
and right of way in Africa. Here no
hoy under the ago of 111 is allowed to
enter a public bouse for any purpose
whatever. That in itself is not remarkable, but tho law goes on to prevent
any boy under 16 to enter a theater!
The pantomine season must be n very
sad time for tbo children of Heligoland. And New York, u< ending to n
recent case, has a similar theater law
ni operation.
i !)������ city of Roanoke, in Virginia, is
very anxious that the morals of its
boys should not be corrupted, and the
city council has recently passed a law
providing that all boys���and girls���under sixteen years of age, must bo in
tin- house rt niie o'cl, ok nt night, and
must not go out nlouo again, fn tlio
winter mouths the latest hour at
which they are to be allowed to he in
the sti. eta alone is eicht.
.no.le i i lai sc i nai is, too, thnt no
:i ooi lin ia will he taken if the boy
.ni- -i writti per uission from his par-
mil or gi ,,1'iiiui to be out, linl unless
no has that permission, or is searching
for a dncter, ttie boy who is out after
the hours mentioned runs the risk of
being arrested  and   his parents lined.
It sooms incredible that there should
bo a law anywhere, forbidding hovs to
ucoept what is freely offered to thein,
but boys under sixteen in Norway are
sti idly forbidden lo accept cigarettes
from anybody, either us a gift or in
exchange for payment. The enact ment
is part Of a Wider law governing the
relations of boys and tohaeco. The sale
of tobaccos to boys is absolutely prohibited, and tobacconists who sell tobacco to such boys are subject to a
lino.
Tourists are forbidden to offer boys
tobacco in any form, mid aro liable to
nroscntion if they do so Just as tbe
boy is liable to n fine if he   accepts it.
Even a father is lined,if he is known
to bo guilty of breaking this law, the
object of which, is, of course, to pro
teot tho health of the hoys of the country. ���Chums.

for the use of at least a thonsa* d rail-

MINING NEWS.
+��� ����������+�������������������� ���>��������������������������������
Windermere, B. C., Nov. 8. ���(Special to The Miner. )--The Phoenix group
mi Horse Thief Creek operated by R;
S. Gallop, has discontinued work for
the soason. It is understood that development work on a largo scale will
be resumed in the early spring, or ns
soon as the season will permit.
Messrs Willard and Stratford,of Athalmer, U. C , have had the phenomenal returns of over $800 per toil in
gold, silver and oopper from 25 pounds
of oro wliich they sent to tho North
port smelter. The ore is from the Din
inond group which the owners intend
developing this winter. The property
is situated on tho same lead as the
Paradise group on Spring Creek, now
under hood to the New British Columbia Syndicate, of London, Eng., for
* 150,000.
Recent development work on the
Pretty Girl mine on Boulder Creek,
owned by the New British Colnmbia
Syndicate, of London, Eng., has proven very satislaclory. The ore is richer
than ever.
H. E. Collett, of Starbird & Collett,
townsite agents, nt Windermere, will
make Peterborough his headquarters
in the future and will devote his attention to mining exclusively.
The Peterborough Townsite Co.,
Ltd., is installing a large sawmill in
order to supply intending builders
with lumber  at a reasonable rate.
The Swansea mine will commence
shipping in the very near future.
R. R. Bruce, O. E., representative
of Messrs. Osier & Hammond, is taking iu a large amount of supplies to
the Delphiue mine, on the north fork
of Toby Creek. This property is be*
ing worked throughout the winter on
a large scale under tbe foremanship of
W. Beattie, formerly of tbe Reco
mine, Sandon, B. C.
James R. McLeod and Samuel Brewer intend working the Joan group at
Skooknmohuck, E. K., throughout
the winter.
The Red Line mines on McDonald
Creek, a tributary of Horse Thief
Creek will commence rawhiding es
soon ns snow will permit. The ore
will be shipped from Peterborough in
the spring.
R. S. Gnllop, the well known pioneer of the camp, left for Montreal during the past week.
Ben Abel has bonded a half interest
in the Black Jack group situated in
the Kootonay River country, north
east of Windermere.
It is understood that there is a deal
pending for the Bear group situated
on Bugaboo Creek, owned by Messrs.
Bobert McKeoman and Dan Steadla-
inar, both of Windermere. McKeeman
is now in Spokane. It is undoubtedly
an immense proposition.
A large force of men is being worked at the Red Line mine, under the
tor.imanship  of John Ferraday.
Messrs. Steve Young and" George
Geary, both formerly of Fort bteele, but
now of Peterborough, have struck it
rich on Spring Creek, during the past
month. They hnve located a group of
claims on tho same lead as the famous
Paradise group, and have practically
as largo a showing.
Tho Government has completed n
wagon road from Athalmer, five miles
up Toby creek. The Peterborough
Townsite Co., have also completed
three wagon roads, one up Toby, one
up Horse Thief Creek aud one to tbe
Columbia River from the   town.
There will he an immense amount
of freighting done during the coming
winter between Golden, Steele and
Peterborough, All the general stores
intend getting in a lnrge amount of
supplies in anticipation of tho rush
next spring. Business is better now
than at any time during the past
season.
���   ���   ��
The Good Hope claim on Wild Horse
Creek, which was recently taken over
by an English syndicate, will bo worked nil winter. R. W. MoFarlane, engineer for the company, visited the
property last week and surveyed the
tunnel site. A force of six men will
ho worked throughout the winter. The
cabins will first lie put in shape, after
which work will be commenced on
the tunnel, which is now in 90 feet,
and comprises most of the work that
has beon done on the property. Seven
months' supplies for this force of men
will be packed out as soon as  possible.
O. B. Wilkio, P. L. S��� of Rossland, is now at the property surveying
it for a Orown Grant, which will be
applied for immediately upon his return ���Ymir Miner.
The contract for doing the work on
the Whitewater mine on Rover Creek
has be-n lot to A. Oleson, Fred Bates
and George Smith. The work, whirl
is for lie object of proving ote r, -
serves, will consist of drifting on (hi
V'in, si' I.ni; ii winze and cross cut
ting,
ing $19 for the gold and 9"> per cent,
for the silver. The character of the
ore which will be supplied is low grade
silieious ore running between $5 and
$8 per ton, and this is the class of nre
not desirable for smelters. Iu this
way wo do not come into competition
with smelting industries, although we
are able to offer the same favorah'.e
froight and treatment rates which prevail at the presont time. Now that
wo are assured of a tonnage we are
able to treat ores in Biiinll or lnrge
quantities from any of tbo mines in
the camp, which hns hitherto been
impossible, as Mr. Hopkins had not
finally completed his experiments."

Tho Silica Cyanide Works,near Roos-
lond, have secured a year's snnplv ol
ore from tho War Eagle mine, delivery
of which will commence on Jannary
next. This ore will go straight from
tho mine and will constitute part of
the product whioh will ho sorted at
tho sorting bins to bo erected by the
War Eagle Co. In securing this supply from the War Eagle mine it is
confidently asserted by the management of tho Cyanide company thnt
they will he prepared to largely increase it, abou* the middle of "next
week. The Silica works, tho management say, will at once bn enlarged to
a capacity 15 tons per day, the present
capacity being 75 tons' por dnv in

During tho woek just closed 5,580 tons

speak for themselves ai.d require no
comment. Nick Trogear, formerly
of the Le Roi mine, nud now in charge
of tho^Giant property on Red Mountain, stated yesterday that de would
have 1,000 tons of ore ready for shipment by tho end of the year.
A $4,000 gold brick representing the

Duncan Mcintosh, president and

east. He informed the Associated
Press representative that at the 300-
foot level, at a point 100 feet north of
the shaft, a I ody of ore 45 feot in
width had been met, this had been
crosscut for a distance of 45 feet when
he left and there was no sign of the
other wall.
"It is the largest body of clean ore
that I over saw," snid Mr. Mcintosh.
"Thore are now 100,000 tons of ore in

will begin shortly.''
LORD DUFFERIN ON THE LE ROI
At the recent general meeting of the
London and Globe Finance Corpora
tion, u dividend of 10 per cent., or
��300,000, wus declared. The chairman,
the Earl of Dnfferin, in reviewing
the company's operations, bad tho following to say regarding their British
Columbia investments:
"During the past year wo have made
several public issues, all of which were
fully subscribed. The first of these
was the Le Roi mine, which is generally admitted to he one of the great
mines of the world. Its fornitr owners devoted themselves principally to
extracting ore, and neglected altogether the due development of tho prop-
oity, both as regards timbering, shaft
ing, and the introduction of adequate
machinery, During the past year development work lias been pushed iu all
directions ; the mine has been laruoly
re-timbered, and it has heen equipped
with the latest machinery and appliances. On the completion of work now
in progress, the ontjiut will be very
largely augmented, and, what is
equally important, wo have every prospect of considerably decreasing tho cost
of smelting. Notwithstanding the
extensive expenditure which has taken
place for tho foregoing purposes, the
directors of the Lo Roi Company havo
boon ablo.to commence the payment of
dividends, an interim dividend of 5s
por share becoming payable ou tho 7th
of next month; and when once the
mine is iu full working, order, we
have little doubts thai the results nro
