A ROASTER
AT SMELTER
Godsliall Roasting  Furnace
to Be Installed At
Once.
A  GREAT   IMPROVEMENT
Be the Largest of Its
Kind in  Operation
In B. G.
A new Godshall straight line  roasting furnaco Is   to  be  installed at the
Mall Mines smelter at onoo, and, will
probably    be    in operation   in    less
Hum    30 days.     The   undertaking,
which Includes tlie installation uf the
furnace,  building, and   extra   power
will amount   tci    an   expenditure  nf
uVL-r 825,000,    Tin-   hearth   of the furnace is In l��' 18 feet wide nnd 120 feet
long, making  it   one  of  thu  largest
ever put into operation in liritisli Columbia,   It is one of  the  latest   improvements  anil   is  known as a   me-
chanlcal roaster.    The ore  pulp is to
l��u stirred by machinery consisting of
lung carriers, with   stirring bars attached every :;">  feet.    This does away
with the stirring   of the ore by hand,
as is done iu eonneetion with the furnaces at  present   in   operation at the
btin-lter.     This   will   necessitate   the
Becurlngof more power.    Men have already been working upon the  foundation, whieh is   now   about completed.
A   large Hue from the new  furnace to
the main smokestack,   will  bo  constructed,   The building to  accommodate the furnace will be 10  feet   wide
niul 1T>U feet long.    It is reported that
the smelter officials are contemplating
other extensive improvements  at   the
smelter after the lirst  of  the   coming
year.
Since the starting of the smelter a
few weeks ago, tho shipments of ore
from the various miues of tin- Nelson

With an Accident.
Southampton, Sept. 28.���The American liner New   York,   Captain   Roberts, from New  York, Sept.   10th  for
Southampton,   arrived here  last evening at 10, about 17,',' hours late. Capt.
Huberts reported the steamer bad broken her starboard shaft on Tuesday at
2:30 a.m.    The accident will   not   interfere with her   return   voyage.    Although the New   Y'ork was due to arrive here about 4 iSO a.   m.   yesterday,
Ihe Southampton agents of the American Line were not anxious about her.

John   \V.   Grace,   brother  of   former
Mayor Grace of New York City, was a
passenger on the liner, made the   following statement to   a   correspondent
of the Associated l'ress: "After a fair
passage it was   discovorcd   very early
Tuesday  morning   that  a  shaft   was
broken, but it wus Wednesday   morning before the passengers were   aware
of the  nature  of  the  trouble.    The

had been a considerable gale all night
and the New Y'ork was   rolling   heavily.    On Wednesday night   the sea increased and the   weather   had become

Pekin,Sept. 35.���Via Taku.Sept. 28.
��� All the foieign ministers have addressed notes to Prince Chnug suggesting the return to Pekin of tbe Em-
press, Emperor and court. The notes
were informal and were not written
in a diplomatic capactiy. Tho writers do not consider them binding upon
their respective Governments, Prince
Ching undertook to deliver the notes.
The outcome is a matter of speculation,the doubtful clement being the
inlluenec of Prince Tuan and Tung
Fuhsian, who may restrain tbe court.
General Chaffee discussing the probabilities today said:
'' I do uot believe that any European monarch would enter the camp
of IiIb allied eneuiios, and 1 doubt
that tbe Empress Dowager will do so.
It Is generally conceded that tlie restoration of tbe Chinese Government
is essential. I have favored the withdrawal of the main allied force to
Yang Tsun and Tien Tsin. leaving 2,-
ooo mixed troops to guard the legations. "
Peikn, Sept. 22, via Taku, Sept.85,

by Missionary Wherry. Friends of
Prince Ching declure that he was coerced into giving. It is reported by
the French that a patrol has been tired on outside the east gate of the city.
Otherwise everything is quiet.

German Officers and Men Looking For
Trouble With China.
New York, Sept. as.���That the ollieers and men in the German army are
firm in the belief that war is Imminent between Germany and China is
reflected iu the unusual number of
applications which have been made to
a life insurance company, in this city
for policies on their lives. Hundreds
of applications have been received
through a Berlin agency. Information which came from Berlin was of
sreh a character that the declaration
of war was believed to be close at
hand.
TO RESUME ON
THE QRANITE
In a day or two the Duncan Mines
will resume operations on the Granite
mine, wbieh hns been closed down for
the past two months. Work will begin on the White tunnel which will
be driven until It comes In contact
with the lowest level of the mine.
The tunnel will be 300 feet long.
Gordon Hunter, who is in Rossland
in eonneetion with the Le Roi Mining Company's assessment appeal, as
oounsel for the Crown, has some vigorous and independent ideas as to the
true policy winch sliould be pursued
by the Government in encouraging
the Individual prospector. To a reporter for The Rossland Record he
said:
"The idea must occur to every man
who visits the mining camps of this
Province as they ore today, that the
man who actually discovers the property, as a rule, profits nothing by bis
discovery. Invariably it ultimately
becomes the property of tho wealthy
capitalist.
"it seems a great pity that the
man who risks his life and suffers
personal privation in these mountains
should not be assured tho reater
part, at all events, of his energy and
enterprise.
"My opinion,based on close observation, Is that it is tbe duty of the
Government to bring about a radical
change in the whole matter, and to
introduce some measure having foi
its object the guaranteeing to the die
Covarer of the beneficial ownership of
his claim.
���1 see no rcasou why a mining fund
should not be established, say SriOO,-
000, to be devoted to tbe development
of promising prospects. The Government should establish competent mining experts at various points in the
Province, whose duty it would be,
upon application of the prospectors,
to examine the properties and in the
event of tbe expert coming to the conclusion thut the prospect should be developed, the Government would, on
his recommendation, advance out of
this fund, on the security of the eluim
itself, and for a small interest of say-
ten or fifteen per cent., reserved to
cover the possible mistakes of experts,
whatever sum he recommended to be
expended.
"In this way the prospector would
retain 8.1 per cent, of his interest in
the claim, and money could easily be
advanced from time to time if the expert considered such advances warranted.
���In this way every able-bodied man
in tbe Piovince would have an opportunity to try bis luck in the mountains, if so disposed, with the assurance that if be struck a good prospect
he would be able to secure the fruits
of his enterprise for himself und not
have to yield up the greater part in
order to keep even a small interest.
"I feel sure that if such a policy
were adopted an enormous impetus
would be given to the prospecting of
nur mountains, and that new mining
camps would open up on every side.
with.the necessary consequence of n
great railway and industrial development, as it Is a well known fact that
the business of our shipping mines is
worth more to the railways than numbers of farms,
"The true policy, in my opinion, in
short, is to encourage the poor but
thrifty and energetic prospectors and
not to give a bonus to people who are
already independent. "

has represented since ls'.H without

district of London, lle was lirst elected for tbe Strand in 1801. A few
days ago Mr. Smith was threatened
with opposition on curious grounds,
namely, the so called prudish literary
censorship exercised by his linn,
which several times refused to sell
well known works on its book-stalls
owing to their alleged Impropriety,
But the Independent-Conservatives
eventually deolded that sufficient en-
tuhsiusm could not be worked up on
this basis and the son of the millionaire, who started as a newsboy, once

Nelson.
Mr. T. G. Shaugnessy of Montreal,
president of the Canadian I'aeilie
Railway Company, and party, arrived
in Nelson this afternoon, coming byway of the Balfour extension line.
The President will spend some time
in looking over the new yards, and
this evening the party will leave for
Rossland by special train. Besides
President Shaughnessy Ihe part] consisted of E. B. Osier. M. P., R, P..
Angus, W. II. Matthews, ami A. R,
I'reelman, directors, and Messrs. William Whyie. P. A. Peterson and G.
McL. Brown.
Captain Troup left Nelson last, even
ing and met the party at Kootenay
Landing. This morning Superintendent H. Mai-pole and II. ,1. Cambie, of
Vancouver, who arrived in Nelson last
evening, left for Procter,  whore  they
joined the party   and    accompanied it
to Nelson.
The macadamizing of Baker Street
will undoubtedly stop when the present block, which is opened up, is
completed. It is said that there is a
decided difference of opinion among
the members of tbe Council as to
whether the work shall be proceeded
with nast Stanley Street. It is also
said that, the mayor has asked that
t-he work be continued. The matter
will be settled at the meeting of the
Council next Monday evening.
The work would continue without
the least hesitation, but for the dilli-
culty of financing it. At the completion of the Street to the west end of
the Ward and Stanley Street block,tbe
.30,000 obtained a few weeks ugo by
by-law, will have been spent. This
means that if another block is opened
up tbe present council will go out at
the end of the year, leaving a deficit
of probably 915,000 in the city treasury. It has been estimated that $3,-
(1011 is required to complete one block,
and four blocks being completed,
means that $13,000 has been used.
Stanley Street was graded from Vernon to Robson Street, at a cost of $*,-
000. The macadamizing of one block
of Josephine Street, three blocks of
Maker Street and the giading of Stanley street has cost somewhat over 810,-
000. Front Street was also planked,
the cost of which, however, does not
sei.-m to have been determined, but it
must have been considerable of tho remaining 84,000. The matter of continuing the work on Baker Street will
be brought before tbe Board of Public
Works, on Monday afternoon,and this
body will undoubtedly recomuieud to
the Council on Monday evening, that
the work be discontinued, When the
work was lirst started it was the intention to proceed to Falls Street, or
as far as tbe money would permit. If
tbe work- pioeeeds no further than
Stanley Street, all will be completed
in two weeks.

VERY   LAME CLAIMS.
"We appeal with confidence to the
people," said Sir Wilfrid Laurier at
the Sobmer Park meeting. And he
went on to state bis ground of confidence :
"Wo have settled the school question, we have reformed the tariff, we
have found a way to diminish taxation without injuring commerce, we
have denounced the Rulgium and Gor
limn treaties, whieh fettered our commercial arrangemets, and by that act
alone Canada has become a nation in
a sense that it never was before. "
It is assuming a good deal to say-
that lie settled the school question.
On his own confession, made but a
few days ago in one of his speeches.
all bo did was to appeal to Mr. Green-
way to deal mercifully with the minority. He said in effect to the Manitoba Premier: "You have despoiled
these people of their rights: if you
cannot restore them iu their entirety.
we beg of you to do tbe best you can
for the sake of peace." And Mr.
Greenway made concessions accordingly. That is the settlement. The
concessions were not pleasing to the
majority, and the minority do nol
accept them as final and conclusive.
There has been no settlement.
" We have reformed tlie tariff,M he
says. There have been some changes,
but we are not aware that they have
over been regarded in tlie light of reform. A few years ago,when the tariff was the subject of very hot discus-
Hion, the Liberals promised to reform
it. What was meant was that they
would reduce it to the basis of a revenue tariff. Protective duties would
be cut down, and only such rates imposed as would be necessary to supply
tbe needs of the public service. That
is what was meant and understood by
tbe Liberal promise of a reform tariff.
Has this promise been carried out'.'
The average rate of customs duties
livied on imports from 1893 to 1800,
tho last four years of Conservative administration) was 17.47 por cent.
The average rate under Liberal administration is 10.70. Here is a difference of 71*100 of one percent., which
will scarcely be regarded as representing the very wide difference between
a protective and a revenue tariff.
Nor, if it is reform, will the people
be disposed to admit that it is substantial enough to make itself visible
to the naked eye.
As there has been no appreciable
diminution of taxation, it is possible
that commerce has not been injured.
As to the Belgian and German treaties it is only necessary to say that
Sir Charles Tupper was the lirst Canadian public man to demand that they
should be denounced, This demand
was supported by the Imperial Ecdcr-
iiiiou Leuuge. and n delegation waited
on the imperial Government to that
end years before Sir Wilfrid Laurier
ever dreamed of becoming tho Premier of Canada. The claim thai ii jvae
he and bis Government who moved
Lord Salisbury to denounce those
treaties is on a par with Mr. Mulock's
claim that, it was he who brought
about Imperial penny postage, entirely ignoring tbe fact that Mr. lien-
Biker Beaton had l n  advocating  it
for twenty years and had got the
question to the very point of being
carried, when it went with ,-i rush in
tho blaze of imperialism that broke
out No suddenly mill violently tw
three years ago.
Mr. Sifton may nol expect lo carry
liis Provlucu for ihe Government, or
even to bold tin- advantage they now
possess; but if then- are to In- Ministerial candidates rcturnod In- is bound
to see that they will lie docile ones.

The Aldermen will observe from tin
Beer-Waterman    Incident  that,    although there may be   but the one law
with regard to the   poll tax. there are
several   methods of   enforcing   or   interpreting it.    Thai is not   usual   under the British Hag.    There is but one
law for all. and we shall Mud il much

Dawson City .Miner Who is Disgusted Willi the Corruption There.
Montreal. Sept.. 38.���A letter received from Dawson City by a Mont-
iiler throws a lurid light upon the
situation there and illustrates how
the territory is being n'alailininistercd
by Mr. Sifton and his officials, The
writer says, under date of June 80:
"People are getting out of the country as fast as they can. They are going down river by the hundreds on lo
the American side, for there is nobody going to stay here aud prospect
for the Canadian Government, for
when you do find anything tbe.Govcrn-
ment takes one-tenth of it away from
you; and then some man will come up
to the officials,that lias a little money,
and bribe them, and they will give
him the rest. When I leave this country I am going to get out my citizen
papers and I never want to see a country that tho Hritish Hag Hies over
again. You can talk about taxes,
but this beats anything 1 ever heard
of. Last winter the Government taxed people so much B cubic foot for ice
that the people out on the Yukon river.    The pool  man pays il all,
There is no mistake this would be-
as good a mining camp as there is in
the world if it were not for the laws
of the Government, There has been
Bometlng like (18,000,000 of gold taken
out of this district this year. There
is no doubt this is a rich country but
on all those creeks that there is anything found the Government has reserved what is not taken np, and nobody will do any prospecting anywhere else in Canadian territory under existing- laws. As for working
for wages this IS a very poor country.
Work- is hard to get and you are not
sure of your pay when you do earn il.
Of Course if a man could get steady
work- here, he can make a little
money in a short time; but it is almost impossible   to get   steady   work
and il costs so much to live here that
it soon eats it all up. Three dollars
a day is tin- very cheapest you can get
board lure. I made 11,000 lust winter
working for wages. I was lucky: I
got mine, but then- wore lots of men
who were Ileal  out  of llu-ir wages.       I
know of men who had 81,500 coming
and they gol paid at tin- rale of thirteen cents on ihe dollar.
'���The train is running between
White Horse Itaplds and Skagway
now. Dawson has coma to the front
aboul as fas', as any town in the
world, Three years ago there was
only a tew link- log cabins, with only

Howard, who 1ms In"'" ��u trial for
th. past 10 days, charged with being
.principal in the assassinations uf
tVUliam Goehel, was found guilty by
���,, ,urv yesterday his punishment bell,! fixed at death, The fact that the
JL had deliberated nil of yeBterday
without reaching a vcnlict led to the
belief that it was hopelessly divided,
and this fuel mtde the verdlot shutting to Howard nml those who hopod
for his ultimate acquittal, Howard
,ii,l not Iobc Ills oomposure when the
venliet was read in tin- oourt-room.
He glanced at his attorneys, who sat
bodldo liiiu and smiled, hut said noth-
\ftci- tin' Jury had been discharged,
Howard wus taken buck to tho j.-iil.
and there, for the Brst time he bo-
trftyed emotion. He called for a pen
ami paper and wrote u long letter to
1,|b wife, during which tours coursed
down his checks, tie wus joined later
by his attorneys, ��� who Bpont a, good
part of the day i" conference with
hlralnregard to lho motion for u new
trial, which will ho filed tomorrow,
and other matters in connection with
tin- case.
W. II. Culton, "'ho is under indictment as an accessory to the Goebel
murder and who gave damaging evidence against both Howard and Caleb
Powers, was released on 810,000 bail
this afteroon and his case continued
until the January term,
-���.lini" Howard, as ho is commonly
known in the mountains, in a strikingly handsome man, H years old,
anil would lie uno of tin- lust to bo
pointed out by u stranger as the man
on trial. He bad the record, however, of being tho leader of tho Howard-White faction in tlie Raker-Howard i'i-ikI in Clay county, in which
numerous lives were taken, He hnd
killed George Baker and was suspected of the assassination of Tom Baker,
who was killed after the name fashion an Qoebel, and Howard's friends
believe that tin-so facta have much to
do with the making of the verdict sentencing li i in to the gallows,
The trial of Henry K. YoulHoy of

Intense interest prevails here among
tho citizens of Stevens County in the
capture of tho robbers who effectually
relieved Brown, Gilffltha and (I. 0,
Caster of all their earthly possessions
m Marcus Sunday night. City Marshall Dietrlok of North port came
down last night and identified the
dead burglar as Thomas Downer, a
well known crook, who has heen doing the country along   the line uf the
Spokane Falls .t Northern Railway
from Spokane, to Northport, Dower
was well known to the authorities in
Spokane, nml tallies with the description telephoned hy Sheriff Cole to
Deputy Sheritt Wright.
The surviving robber, who was
known at Northport as "Sprogue"
Wells nnd "Carl' Wells, gave his
name to the sheritt' here as Harry
Coffey, hut his real name is Mel Colleen. He is said to have derived the
name of "Sprague" Wells from the
fact that ho was formerly at Sprague.
Colleen says that his dead partner
Was a stranger to him 1 that his first
acquaintance with him occurred at
Itosaburg only n few days ago, ami
that Downer came from Republic.
Marshal Dietrick says he saw both of
them at Northport last week. While
there he received a tracer from the
Spokane police decriblng them ns
'rooks. They occupied most ot their
time in and around the dives of the
City. They left Northport about the
middle of last week, and the first report traceable to them was a hold-up
of two men in a box car on the southbound freight near llossburg Friday
night when the prospectors were relieved of $1(1.

The Winnipeg iriv Press of Wednesday says: At the convention of

Mr. W. I'-. McCreary, ex-mayor of
Winnipeg ami Dominion Immigration
Commissioner, was made the unanimous choice of tlie meeting Us Liberal
candidate to contest the division at
the    approaching     general    elections.
Kiev, n candidates in all were nominated, of whom Mayor F. W. Col-
eleugh. of Selkirk, and Mr. W. F. McCreary. of Winnipeg, received the
strongest support. The final ballot
stood 41 for McCreary and 17 for Co]-
cleugh, whereupon the former was
made tin- unanimous choice by a
standing vote amidst uproarious applause,
nf Ihe Winnipeg lacrosse team
which will leave for New Westminster next Tuesday the Free Press
says: It will be learned with regret
that four valued members of the Win-
nipegs will be unable to take the trip.
They are Rod Flett, "llaldy" Robertson. I'irnie Campbell and I). P. Clarke,
Messrs. l-'leit and Robertson notified
the executive some time ago of their
inability to accompany the team, but
it was only learned this morning that
Ernie Campbell, Ihe brilliant little
home fielder, and Dune. Clarke, the
popular Held captain, would be unable to assist in the contest with the
salmon caters. Mr. Campbell is prevented by his duties, and Mr. Clarke
through the illness of his mother.
Campbell's absence will change the
team somewhat. It was picked to
lineup as follows: Coal, .1. Flett;
point. Kwing; cover point, .lamieson:
defence Held. Clarke. Marshall, M.
Flett: centre, tiilmcy; home field,
Campbell, Martin. Murphy: outside
home. Burns; inside home, Roach.
Now that Campbell cannot go his
place will be taken by either McKay
or llcndroii. Seott Adams will probably act as Held captain. Fred C'as-
sldy will go along as spare man, his
injured leg, sustained iu the last
game, preventing him from figuring
on the team. Messrs. Murry. McGoW-
an and Mart Hooper will also take in
the trip, and probably several others
on their own responsibility. The
team has had a poor chance for practicing during the past few weeks owing to the continued wet weather, hut,
they are all in fairly good shape.
Pi art ices will be called for every
night this week.

Being a Reminiscence   of   the Galveston Floods of 1875.
The recent disastrous Hood at Galveston, Texas, which occurred on the
14th of this month and was accompanied by such a fearful loss of life
and untold Buffering, has awakened
many memories of a similar catastrophe that occurred there just 25 years
ago. Among those who recall that
event is Mr.Thomas Gallon of Nelson,
who spent many years In Texas and
remembers the Hood of '75 hh having
occurred just before he went to that
country. The incident was brought
to Mr. Gallon's memory by rather a
strange coincidence that may be of interest to those who have read the accounts of the recent disaster. Mr.
Gallon is the possessor of an old teak
wood chest that has been in his family
for over 125 years. Many years ago
the chest was given a lining of old
newspapers, among them being a paper published in Cork about the 1st of
October, 1875. Several days ago Mr.
Gallon hail occasion to open the old
chest and his attention was attracted
to an article in the Cork paper referring to the Galveston flood. After reading the story through, Mr. Gallon cut
it out and gave it to a Miner man. It
is now published as of possible Interest to those who may also remember
tin' floods of 25 years ago. It is as
follows:
"The German la, of the White Star
Line, and the City of Chester, of the
Innian line, have arrived at Cork.
brinigng New York papers to the
18th instant. The following telegram
appeared in the Herald of that date:
'Houston. Texas., Sept. Ki. 1875.���A
fearful gale has been blowing at Galveston since yesterday morning. The
eity is partially under water,which is
several feet deep in tlie principal
streets. Several wrecks have been reported. The Ocean House, on the
Gulf Beach, is entirely surrounded
with water, and the outhouses are
gone. The City Hospital is filled with
water, and much damage is already
sustained by citizens.who arc terribly
frightened,and the storm is pronounced the heaviest since lsii7. Thirty
workmen on the breakwater being
built by the Government were cut off
and are lost. The Santa Fee railroad
bridge, across the bay. has been swept
away; and the Houston niilway
bridge is under water. Twenty feet
of this end of it has been washed
away. The water at Virignia Point
has backed up for three miles on
the mainland,and is still rising. The
gale is increasing, and the barometer
is falling. The bay is so full of water
that if the wind changes to the north
the whole island will be lost, and no
lives can be saved. The shipping in
the harbor was having a fearful time
of it at the last accounts.' A telegram from New Orleans of the 127th
adds: The equinoctial storm continues. Despatches from the South-
est Pass report it is blowiing hard
with thick cloudy weather. The ship
Mnrca Greenleaf," arrived from Keval
via Delaware Breakwater, reports
encountering a terrific hurricane on
latitude deg. 28 mill., longitude 84
deg. 4(1 inin., commencing northeast
and southeast. She lost fore and main
topsail and split fore topmast staysail
and jib. At last accounts from Galveston the gale still prevailed. The
steamer George W. Clyde was at her
wharf. Morgan's steamer Mary, the
Harriet Lane,and several small vessels
are anchored inside. Telegraphic
communication after that date was
stopped so tin papers of the following
day do not contain further particu
lars.' ''
Ever since the above mentioned
Hood the citizens of Galveston have
expected a worse one and the older
residents have prophesied that the
eity would some day he wiped out by
a tidal wave. It is remarkable that
the recent disaster should have occurred just 25 years after the one of   1875.
