Tenth Year
IS A fllRACLE OF FOLLY
The Ultimatum of Kruger is Soundly Scored.
-No Doubt His Individual Act.
THE SENTIME NT OF REAL AMERICANS
As Gieat Britain Stood Loyal With the United States in
Moral Influence in Spanish War, so Likewise
Americans Stand With Britain Wow.
London, Oct.   12���The following is I
tbe text of   tbe   British   replv to  the.1
Boer ultimatum :
Obamberlain to Mllner, High   lorn-;
missioner��� Sent, 10:46 p. in., Oot.   10,
1899.
"Her Majesty's Government iee<jiv- j
eil with great regret tbe peremptory
demands of tbe Sonth African Republic eonveyed in your telegram of Oeto- '
Iiit I). Sou will inform the Govern-
meut of the South African Republic,
In reply, that the conditions demanded by the Government of the South
African Republic aro such ns Her Majesty's Government deem it impossible to discuss."
New York, Oct. 12.���The London
correspondent of Tbe Tribune says:
There is a general revulsion of feeling throughout the country respecting
the whole Transvaal controversy. The
nation is suddenly united as one man
in the defense of the Empire. Outgo- |
ing soldiers are receiving greetings of
excited and enthusiastic multitudes'.
The war is now welcomed. Since Kruger justified the English resistance to
a secession movement within the empire, the English conscience is no longer disturbed by any misgivings re
specting the justice and necessity of
war. President Kruger, hy a single
bud stroke, convinced everybody except Mr, Stead, that the English have
a righteous cause.
The greatest English battle for the
Empire since Waterloo is coming on.
and with 5,000 regulars in South Africa, victory will be certain.
A  well known South  African  said
today that while President Kruger ��as
getting old, he never had allowed nnv-
body to  diet.ite   policies  to him,   and
that    it    v;is     ii     mistake   to   as-
si ..'    that   be   had   been   rushed   I y

these help to explain the situation, but
the ultimatum, while undoubtedly
Kruger's individual aot, remains a
miracle of folly."
and free, strong judiciary of the Cape
Ok ny to disabuse themselves of such
notions. The fact is, that the Traus-
va:il, with citizenship restricted to a
minority, with not only religions but
sectarian tests and lingual shibboleths
hedging in real authority, is not a
Republic but a particularly narrow
and despotic oligarchy. On the other
band, despite the nominal monarchy,
the British Empire, whe.ber in Great
Britain itself or in the self-governed
Colonies.snch as Cape Colony a- d Canada, is one uf the most complete democracies the world has ever known. On
general ground of form of Government,
thorefore, American sympathies will
naturally   turn   to tho   Britisli   side.
"In hrief, then. Great Britain is acting nrectsely as tho United States
woald act in her place; precisely as
this country would have to act if it did
not wish to repudiate its principles
and its record. That is the great, salient, fundamental fact, which is
likely, ns it seeems to us, to determine
the direction in which the overwhelming mass of American sympathy will
be given.
"There is. of <��� mrse, no ground and
no excuse for exoi ement. There must
he no animosities aroused between
Americans who sympathize with tho
Uitlanders and those who sympathize
with the Boers. Nor, indeed, will
Americans generally fail to sympathize
In some measure with the Beors, at
least so fur as to regret that their counsels have not been wiser and more generous nnd that the heroism of the
'Great Trek' has not bad a happier
ending. But just as Great Britain
stood loyally with ihe United States in
sympathy and in moral influence in
onr figl't with Spi in, because we were
onntend ng for the rights of man to
lifo. liberty and the pursuit of happiness so will the smypathy .-ml moral
influence of America be given iu   tins
nj to England, not only because she
is ii 'r liin aud onr friend, hu'. because
m this fighl she stnnds for the snme
rights nf man, and because, in the
v ords of be Canadian Piime Minister,
already quoted in these ro'nmns, she
si uids 'in the defense of a holy cause,
in the defense of holy justice, for tho
defense of the ippre��sed, for Iho enfranchisement of the (low:; trodden,
and for advancement of liberty, pro
gicss and civilization'."
"What are yon  talking   about?" de-j
manded a man in the audience.
Then Mr. Cockran seemed to remember that an explanation was proper,
and he said that he reasoned that the
United States would tnke advantage
of its opportunity only on general principles, ..s he had not been told it by
any one having authority   to   say   it,
London, Oct. 12.��� A Pretoria dispatch dated October 11 th, sent from
Lorenzo Mnqnez, telegraphic com
munieatlon between the Cape and
Natal being undoubtedly interrupted,
says:
Mr. Couyngham Greene this afternoon said good bye to President Kruger aud his officers iu his private capacity. He and his staff will leavo
tomorrow by two special trains.
Mnrtial law was proclaimed at 5
o'clock this afternoon and the Britisli
residents without permits must leavo
Transvaal within eight days.
Mr. Asquith, former Home Secretary, speaking at Newburgh this evening ou the Transvaal situation, and
referring to the attitude abroad, said:
"Americans have not forgotten,
and I believe they will not forget, the
attitude wliich this country, almost
alone among tho nations, assumed toward them recently when they were
enduring times of crisis and emergency similar to those which seem
now before us. Sympathy shown in
those hours of dnnger and ueid engendered a warmth of gratitude, and, I
might also say, tenderness of sentiment, which is no less genuine and
strong between nations than between
individuals. Look hack tHo years.
There is nothing which wo have more
reason to congratulate ourselves upon,
that has added more to our international assets, than the fact that we established a tie of affectionatd reciprocal sympathy with our great kindred
nation beyond the Atlantic."
Mr. Leonard Courtney,Liberal Mem
ber of Parliament for Bodmin division
of Cornwall, addressing his constituents in Liskeard, was frequently interrupted. Mr. Courtney lamented the
failure of the principles enunciated at
The Hague, and in a kngthy criticism
of the government's policy said that
"onr policy lias been of a Hbiftinj,
ehnracter, causing the Boers to distrust us. " He said be did not believe
the prevalent idea thut there was a
conspiiacy to expel the British from
South Africa, and he regretted the
Boar ultimatum, tnt said he was unable honestly to condemn it. After
his speech Mr. Courtney was heckled
by hostile demonstrations. The customary vote of confidence was moved,
but was met by an amendment, which
was adopted by a large majority, expressing regret that Mr. Courtney
should be at variance with the Government's polioy and complete confidence
iu Lord Salisbury. Mr. Courtney, after the passing of the umendment, ssid
|i| was the lirsl time ho ban encounter
ud a hostile vote, and he admit! fl i;-
gravity nnd seriousness. Iho ai lienco
then sang, "Rule Brittamn. "
VICTORIA BUDGET.
TEMPORARILY SETTLED
New York, Oct. 18. ��� deferring editorially to the South Africa war, The
Tribune says:
"Now that war has netuidly been
forced by the Transvaal npon Great
Britain, the question arises, ou which
side are American sympathies. There
are some Americans, including seme
of the most worthy and esteemed citizens, who are of Dutch origin, aud
who, through influences of sauguinity,
side strongly with the Boers. There
are others no Iobs worthy, and perhaps
more numerous, who simi larly espouse
the British cause. Thero nro unhappily
others who are imbued with a bliud
hatred of Ore-it Britain, and who for
'hat reason alone side with the Boers:
not that they love the Dntcb, but that
they hate the Britisli. But these are
dnsses. The masses of Americans will
he guided nnd governed by broader
principles than these. They will not,
m tho first place, be misled by tho pre
tense that ihe Transvaal is a Rebublie
'"id OroBt Britain an effete monarchy,
11,1(1 ""it therefore Americans should
sympathize with the former. They
have only to rompare the restricted
franchise and eortupted courts of Ihe
TraiiBvanl with the universal suffrage,
London, Oct. 12.���All kinds of ru-
mnrs are telegraphed from South Africa regarding Boer movements. Apart
from the advance of the Volksrust and
Viinroonnti command era, reports have
arrived of the oonuenlration of Utrech
and Vribeid commanders toward the
Drifts along tbe Buffalo River, east of
Dundee, one special correspondent at
Lndyamith expresses tho opinion that
a Boer command of some 200 men visited Newcastle on Tuesdaj, made pur
chases aud tben withdrew. This, he
suggests, niiiy havo given rise to the
reports regarding the occupation of
Lning's Nek.
According to n dispatch from Capetown, it is asserted there that the
Boers have arranged with Chief
Linchwo, a prominent chief of the
north western border, to take up arms
against Britain.
A dispatch from Durban says arrangements for forming an Uitlnnder
regiment have been completed.
New York, Oct. 12.���During the
course of his address nt the pro-Boer
meeting last night, Bourke Ooekran
gave grent emphaais to the declaration
that'tbe day England goes to war
with the Dutch Republic, onr claims
in Alaska will be pressed with all the
force and power thin Government can
put behind them."
Volksrust, Oct. ii.-a.JO p.in. (Ui-
layed iu transmission)���President Kruger's sou nnd grandson, as well as half
tbe members of the TranBvaal Legi-la-^
tnre. are now ut tne front. Men who
are arriving here report that tbe Leers
are siill streaming from different directions aud districts to ihe Natal frontier, many who have tieen refused by
the enlisting officers going on foot
London, Oct. IU.���The morning papers are discussing ut some length the
authorship of the documents which
have recently emanated from President
Kruger's Government. Dr. Leyds,
Ihe European representative of ihe
South African Republic, is generally
credited with tho authorship of the
ultimatum.
The Government has arranged for
the s ife couduct of Mr. Conyngliflin
Greene throngh the Transvaal and
Orange Free St to territory   to Natal.
PreBid ut Kruger is oreditod with
(Inclining to quit Pretoria, deciding
that "like a faithful captain, he will
remain on the bridge, whether the
ship rides safely into tho harbor or
goes down into tbe deep."
It iB now definitely known that the
British Government sent no final proposals to Pretoria. The Trr.nsvnal'a
ultimatum forestalled  that   intention.
So far as news received thns fur
shows, no shot has been fired.
VIOLENT  EARTHQUAKES.
Four Thousand People Killed and Five
Hundred Injured.
Amsterdam, Oot.   12.���A dispatch to
the Handelsblnd from Hutiivia, capital
of the Netherlands, says violent earthquakes visited the sonth side of the island of i huh], the next to tho   largest
of the Moluccas,   between Booroo  and
Pnpim,     completely    destroying    the
town of Amhei aud   killing some 4,000
J persons and injuring COO others.
Mining   Development   on   Vancouver
Island���Appointments.
Victoria; B C. Oct, 12.��� The development of the Lenorn mine ar
Mount Sicker, on this island, has bo
progressed that today tbe manager,
Mr Henry Croft,made a contract with
the Vanauda smelter under which a
thousand tons of ore a mouth aro to be
delivered from the Lenora mine to the
smelter on Texnda Island. The capacity of the smaller will be largely increased to permit of this oontract being carried out without interference
with the treatment of ore from the
company's own mines, whicn it only
hitherto handled. The ore will be
hauled by teams from the mine, a distance of six miles, to the E. & N.
R. l'way, which will deliver it to one
of the coal bunkers at Oyster Bay,
whence it can he conveniently shipped
to the smelter. "The use of coal ears
and bunkers will make it unnecessary
to snok the ore, and as it rnns from
$il!i to $40 a ton iu value, tbe operations promise to be exceedingly profitable. There is an immense body of ore
already in sight nnd the monthly shipments contracted for can therefor be
continued indefinitely.
There ar ��� other properties in the
same neighborhood thnt will probably
be (hipping before long.

Can? da's Consent to Temporary Arrangement of Alaskan Dispute.
LAST PAPERS SIGNED IN A FEW DAYS.
Mr. Reginald Tower Will Ratify The u on the Part of
Great Britain.-Canada Relinquishes no
Claim by  the   Assent,
Loudon, Oct. 12.���Sir Louis Henry
Davies, Canadian Minister of Murine
and Fisheries, informs the Associated
Press that he has given Canada's consent to a temporary arrangement of iho
Alaskan dispute. This bus praotically
settled tho whole matter lor the time
being, as the main features of the
same were origually suggested by the
United States. Col. John Hay, the
American Secretary of State, will sign
the last papers within a few days,
and Mr. Reginald Tower, British
Charge d'Af aires in Washington, will
ratify them on the part of Great Britain.    Sir Louis said this evening:
"The terras agreed upon are simply
a line drawn across Cbilkoot Pass, with
absolutely no significance that we hope
thereby to avert local fricticil. Of
oourse,   our   arrival   at   a  totnpnrary
ugreement is satisfactory. So far as
the original contention is concerned,
we nre just as misty as e'er. I see no
siKiis of reaching an immediate settlement. Canada relinquishes no olaim
by ber ass"in to this temporary su-
rnngement, and has not the Bllgbtest
intention of allow ing her original contention to lapse. It is not our purpose
to permit this new understanding to
extend a day longer than it is necessary. The fact ihut I am returning to
Canada must not be taken tn indicate
that a settlement will be reached by
the date of ray leaving England. My
return is necessitated by matters al-
togetber outside Alaskan affairs. I nm,
however, working in conjunction with
the Colonial Office upon the case. Il
will not come before the Joint High
Commission unless a diplomatic settlement is previously attained."
AGAIN DECLARED OFF.
Yachts Towed Back to Their Moorings.
���Try Again To-day.
New York, Oct. 12. ��� \ blanket of
fog over the course and a lack of wind
caused another fizzle of the race of the
single stickers today. Tbe yachts will
try again tomorrow. But the failures
havo had a discouraging effect on the
general public, and there was a great
falling off in the number of excursion
boats. Ships of the Heel that did not
brave tbe perils of the fog could only
orawl out to their destination, keeping
double lookouts forward and their fog
whistles constantly going to avoid jol
liaions. A few of the yachts and tug
boats left tho Battery, but their owners
or skippers refused to go farther than
Stapleton, owing to tbe danger of a
collision with other craft. So far as
is known only one accident occurred,
and that whs not serious
\n excursion ste��'> er from the ny. r
ran Into a Stateli Island ferry and hud
part of her r.'il and bow store in.
Tbe fog did not lift, anil the wind,
if it could be dignified by such ,i name,
instead of increasing, died awBy a t -
getber. When ihe time came io Bignal
the course, the weather vane at the
head of the committee boat, which
wonlrt respond to the bre.it h of a
sleeping infant, lay limp and liMe-s
against tbe staff. There was no I
enough air to show a course for I be
yachts to sail over. Shortly after 12
o'cl'ck, by mutual consent, the com-
mittee bont hoisted the letter "R,"
on the triatic stay, meaning, "Race
postponed. " Mr. Iselin'B interview
ill this morning's papers, protesting
against tho savage criticism of the Co-
Inmbia which has been liberally indulged iu by some of the newspapers.
aud appealing for Support for the Yankee boat and her crew until the series
is completed, evidently touched a patriotic chord, for ou the way back
every excursion steamer in the fleet
sailed alongside and sainted, while the
passengers gave the white beauty three
rotiBing cheers and a tiger.
The repeated fluk��s off Sanday Hook-
have led to some agitation for a change
of the course to Newport, whore there
is usually n breeze, orj to Marblehead,
off Massachusetts, where no difficulty
wonld be experienced in getting plenty
of wind, bnt it is hardly likely that
any change will be made. The regatta
committee believe that this sort of
weather cannot last at this time of tho
year.
The early morning hours  gnvo   very I
little  promise  of  a  race.    There was j
little breeze stirring and   the   fog still I
bung ou quite thickly.    The mainsails
were hoisted early on both boats,   and
soon after !) o'clock they cast  off  from
their moorings   and sailed   for   Sandy
Hook.    Club topsails wero mastheaded
nn the way out  tho   Columbia setting
a smaller ono than was shown on Wednesday afternoon. The Shamrock'b was
apparently larger than any yet seen
afloat.
The yachts arrived off the lightship
nt 10 :10 a. m. Casting off their tow
linos nnd breaking out their head sails,
they circled about the lightship for
an hour or so waiting for the committee boat to nriivo. The fog showed a
disposition to clear off about this tune,
but there was hardly wind enough to
give tho yachts steerage way.
For an hour after the committee boat
arrived there was no more wind and
no prospects of any.so at 12 :!0 o'clock,
after a consultation between those in
charge of iho yachts, both agreed to
call the raco off. The sails of both
yachts wero taken in and thoy were
towed back to their moorings in the
Horseshoe, where they arrived ut 1 :iiO.
The same persons were on board tho
Columbia and Shamrock as have been
there on rnevions days.
Not siu.-e the vn torinns yacht Defender win towed homi from Sun )
Hook   li ii' r   fl    .   race
against the i Ikyrie III, has theie
heenscch a popul r demonstration as
was tendered thu Columbia today ou
her way irom li e lightship to the en-
triiuee oi the channel. In t w of the
tui/ Wallace B. Flint, the Columbia
took the lend aftei t"o race was declared off, the Shamrock following halt a
mile astern, '1 he fleet <f excursion
steamers nnd fust private yachts closed
in on ihe racirs, dividing themselves
upon their smrhnard and port sides.
Tbe big Fall River Lino steamer Plymouth, her upper decks black with
people, caught nn with the Yankee
boat nnd very appropriately set iu motion Iho wave of patriotism that is said
to have In en lacking since Iho races
were Inaugurated, The band on the
Plymouth struck up tbs inspiring
strains of " iJail Columbia. The refrain was reechoed by a thousand
voices Oil board, amid cheers, shaking
of handkerchiefs nnd waving of   hats.
No demonstration oame from those on
board the Colombia, tho tribute having been received in silent gratification, nevertheless. There was a parting saluto from tho whistle of the Plymouth us she forged ahead.

THE   CANADIAN    CONTINGENT.
months" the ''Minister of Militia bat
been active io making preparations
for doing what the Premier said could
not be done, and the suggestion o!
which hid not been regarded as worthy
of consideration The v.ciy simple
explanation of .-ill this is that Mr.
Tarte did not intend there should he
a Canadian contingent, but becoming
frightened at tho te nper of the country   Ministers  changed   their   minds.
Mr. Houston's paper is advising the
business men of Nelsou who are m
bympBlhi' with the Union baders in
demanding ten hours' p��y for eight
hours work to wilhdraw their patronage from The Miner. This is Knffli
warfare, and if Mr. Houston were in
South Africa just now be would no
doubt offer his services as u Kaffir chief.
We are sorry to learn that his paper is
in such distress as ti> reduce itself to
such unworthy extremities. If it were
less deperate than it is it would recognise the folly of tho suggestion, for it
proposes a game that is peculiarly open
to reprisals all around.
CROKER IS THE BOSfcJ.
1
IT IS IGNORANCE.
Editor   Miner:   Does tho Ivlitor   of
It is not possible nt this  momont   tc
trace the   history of the dispatch from | Tbe  Tribune v, ish  to bo consirlered
Ottawa, published   yesterday, purport
ing to describe tho preparations thnt
arc being made to send a Canadian
contingent to Houth Africa in tbe
event of hostilities. But it bears traces
on the face of it of Government inspiration, and was no doubt voluntarily furnished to the Associated Prpss
for circulation, in order to counteract
the impression thas bad got abroad
that our masters at Ottawa had decided to leave the Mother Country to fight
her own Dattles, so far as Canada was
concerned. The liovernment became capital
alarmed at the indignation that was '
aroused by it, and are hastening to
square themselves with the people
We are at a loss to imagine any other
explanation. The dispatcn says that
the Minister of Militia and his snbor
dinates of the Department "havo been
at work for more than two months,
making all neccssrry arrangements to
send a contingent, should occasion
arise that such wonld be necessary. "
Then it hops on to state in greater or
less detail the steps that have been tak-
1 "freak" or a crank, or is it really ig-
, noranoe thut causes him to allow his
; paper to print nil titles with small let
.tors? One is accustomed to strange
freaks and glaring mistakes in the way
i 111 which the English language is written nnd spoken on this side of the
water, bnt it must annoy every one of
education who reads The Tribune to
daily encounter this mistake which appeals with curious persistence in that
paper. Who, I wonder, is accountable for the substitution of small for
letters at the beginning of
titles ol any and'everyj degree? It is
certainly a very old aud well established ruin of English [grammar that all

conceal tbe fact of such   arrangements,
nor  was it  necessary|   indeed,   there'
���was every reason why the Government
should   desire   to   make     the    whole
world acquainted  with   the fact  that
Canada intended, in  a modest way, to'
stand by Great Britain   in   defence  of
Imperial   interests   iu   South   Africa.
Neither  principle nor  policy required ,
concealment.    Queensland   did   not go
atnnt   it mole fashion,   nor did  Now I
Zealand ;   nor was there   the slightest
reason why  they should.    On the con-  with a littl
trary,   if  it  was   to  impress  Kroger!
and   bis   Kaad   thnt  the  Kmpire was
united, aud to warn them against pro- i
ceeding to  extremities, it   -was ueces- j
sary to give the widest possible public- j
ity to the determination of  the Colon- !
ies to bear a hand.
There   is   the   best   of   reasons  for'���
believing       that      the     Government j
had   done    nothing,    and    did    not i
intend to do anything, until tho whole
country  wus  stirred to  anger by   the j
suggestion that  Mr. Taito  would   not
permit any demonstration of sympathy
on the part of  Canada.    We  have   al
ready referred to  an   interview  given !
ont by Sir Wilfrid   Laurier   and   pub- '
lished by authority   in   the chief Gov- I
eminent  organ,   The   Toronto   Globe.
An extract from it   will he interesting
in tnis connection   He was contending
that the Militia Aet would not permit
the employment of  Canadian   militia,
excepting for   purposes  of oefonce.    A
suppositious war witb Spain was cited
as an example   to  show   thnt possihly
Canadian troops might  legally bo sent
to invest that  country, as   a defensive
measure, and then be went on :
"The case of 'he  South African Re-
jiu  lie is not   nnalogous,    There  is   no
menace to Canada,   and  although   ��� c
may bo willing to  contribute tioeps. I
do hot   see   h'uv we can do so.    Then
again, how con Id   wo   do   so   without
Parliament s   granting ns the money?
We simply could oot do anything,   in
other words, we  sb mid have to summon Parliament   The Government o'
Canada is restricted iu its powers    It
is  responsible   to Parliament,   nnd   it i
can do very little without tho   potmis- :
sion of Parliament.   Theie is no donht
as to the altitude  of  the   Government
on nil questions that  mean  menace to
British   interests,   hut in this   present
case our limitations  are  very   clearly
defined.    And so it is that we have not I
offered a Canadian contingent  to the
home authorities.   Tho Militia Dopnrt- j
mont duly transmitted individual offers
to the  Imperial Government,   and the
reply from   tho War Office, as publish- J
ed in Saturday's Globe, shows their nt- j
titnile   on   the  question.    As  to Can- |
ndn's   furnishing   a    contingent,   the i
Government   has    not   riisenssed   the
question, for the reasons which I have
stated���reasons whioh,   I think,   must
easily he understood   by everyone wbol
understands the constitutional   law on
the question. "
This wns given out on the iird inst.,
and published in The Globe of the following day. The tone of the whole
interview was no doubt deliberately
calculated to discourage the proposal
to send a Canadian regiment to aid the
Mother Country in her struggle with
the Boers. More than that, the question o' famishing a contingent had not
oven been discussed���these aro tho
Premier's own words But now wo
have word   from Ottawa that  for two
deiiance with impunity and possibly hope to induce others
to follow nis misguided example? Or
does he suppose that by writing Queen
with a small "q" he is belittling the
highest Lady in the land? Whereas ho
is really only exposing bis utter ignorance and lack of manners. I reter yon
to his issue of yesterday where you
will find "Mr. justice Martin,"
"queen Victoria,' "sir Alfred Mil-
ner',' aud many like mistakes. And
yet his is careful to put capitals for
"Mr" nnd "Dr." and spells "Duke"
'd."

ELSUN  DAILY MINER, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1899.
CITY'S   FINANCES
WILL BE A  BIG DEFICIT  AT THE
END OF THE YEAR.
A Statoment of tbs Oivio Finances Read
Ycstoiday by the City Clerk. -The
Cause of the Deficit.
The financial year is drawing to a
dose, mill the numerous lieuvy expuurl-
Itnres rendered necessary by the various public works and improvements
effected by the present Council have
hoc'ti 11 heavy drain npon the municipal
exchequer, Accordingly, nt the ad-
Imiriicd meeting of the Council hold
yesterday afternoon, ihe Oity Clerk
rend a concise statement of the city ti-
liances Tne stiitmnont ShOWB ail estimated gross deflolt dt 918,860.47, which
at lirst may seem stiirtlitiK to many.
Of this Hum between $1,(11)0 and |6,000
may bo written off ngninst arrears of
taxes, electiic light and water niton,
sower rentals, utc., leaving a net de-
ftuit of, say, $14.0110. Investigation
shows that this deficit is almost entirely on the waterworks: and electric
light accounts,in which the deficits total |7, inn nnd f6,]93 respectively, a total of $1H,!ISN. Tho electric Hgni flume,
when staried by the last Council, wus
estimated to cost about 15,000. As a
matter uf fact it has cost about $12. ���
u(J0, n .Hffersnoe of $7,000, Moreover,
when the lust Council made the costly
purchase of the eleotrio liubt, plant, no
arrangements were made with regard
to the pntchnee of the dam site, an
omission winch cost t lie present Council $1,200 Thu uew dynamos also cost
11,200, an addition which "as not contemplated whui the ekotriii light bylaw was passed, b-.it af.orw irds fonud
necessary to enable tho Council io
malie tho best of their predecessors'
bad bargain, Add to this tho $8,800
deficit on the waterworks account left
by the late Oonnoil, uud $1:2.700 of the
$14,000 is uocounied fur. The money
has all been jndioionsly spent and to
the best advantage, but extra exienr-cs
whioh were not reckoned with in iho
first instance havo swelled the bill.
After tho City Cerk had read the financial statement,which is given in lull
below, a shore discussion ensued, but
it wan deoided to postpone action until the next meeting of Council, when
it would be decided whether the deficit will bo left as an overdraft at
the bank, or whether monev will he
asked for to meet it. This h,;s boon a
year of heavy expouso, the citizens on
all siiUs have been demanding improvements of all kinds and the Aldermen are not afraid of their record as
trusiu s of the public money and interpreters of the public's wishes.
The year's reveutie, as estimated,
anmunis tu $68.870,18, or several thou
sand dollars in excess of the estimated
revenue.    It   is made up ns follows :
Receipts to September 30 (exclusive
of proceeds ��� f debentures),   $44,855, in.
Estimated receipts to December 81,
1899: Electric light rates,$4,200; water
rates, $2,000; road tax, $2,000; sewer

$���200; miscellaneous, $1,500; cemetery
lots and burial permit-, $800; electric
light supplies, $15; health department,
$1,500.    Tolal, $58,870.15.

Mr. Frank MeCloud sod his interest
in the Eagle barber shop yesterday to
Messrs De Vote and Marshall. The
new firm will continue at the old
stand, The unique feature of this shop
now, is that the first woman barber
ever in Nelson, "holds dowu" the second chair in the shop. This is a new
idea in the barber business in Nelson
and maybe, a very beneficial one, This
promising artist's name is Miss. Emma
Cam i bell.
The ball given by the Fraternal Societies iu Fraternity Hall last night,
while not so largely attended ns it
might have been, was, nevertheless, a
pleasant affair. There were enough
prosent to make a thoroughly enjoyable
time Steiner's band furnished the
mnsio and that is sufficient to know
that it was good. The d-siicing was
carried on to an eaily hour this
morning.
William Lnfond, who was committed
tor trial at Pernio by Mr. W. Pernie,
J. P., for theft nnd brought to Nelson
ou September   27 by Constable Barnes,
elecied for a speedy irial, and wus accordingly tried at Fort Seele by Judge
Forin oil the 10th instant, and was
sentenced to a year's imprisonment.
Mr. Ross, of ��� ROBS & Herchemer, appealed for the Crown, nnd Mr. Gurd
for the defense.
Mr. George H. Ham, head of Ihe C.
P. H. advertising department, was in
the City yesterday on his annual trip
to the west. He is accompanied by
Mrs. Hum and left last night over ihe
Crow's Nest lino for tho East. Mr.
Hum is an old newspaper man and is
widely known in Canada. Liko all
ether men of good understanding Mr.
Ham thinks that Nelson is destined
to be one of tho greatest cities in Western Canada.
Several of Ihe members of the Board
of Trade returned yesterday evening
from a vi��it to the Spokane Exposition and they havo nothing bnt praise
for the hosnitabla way they were treated by the members ot the Chamber of
Commerce and the Spokane people gon
i rally. They have a kick, however,
against the Nelson & Fort Sheppard
railway. A private car was engaged by
them but once Nnrthport was reached
everybody was allowed in and they
were orowded ont. Moreover, Nelson
people had been promised the same
rate os visitors from other towns on
the line, and, while they got a single
faro rate, people from stations si nth
of Northport got one-fifth less than
single faro rate.
Quite a little excitement was raised
yesterday afternoon at the corner of
Fraternity Hall on Baker street, by
Chief Thompson of the fire department forbidding the setting cf one of
the telephone poles which the Nelson
& Vernon Co , is putting in. The
hoi" dug for the telephone pole was
just at the side of   the   water mam of
the City, and Chief Thompson insisted
that the pole should not be set unless
it he'- fully two feet awuy from the
main. The City Engineer, Mr. McCul-
looh, was sent for and after considerable wrangling the matter was finally
adjusted by the hole being enlarged
to make the pole the required rtistaui'3
from the main. This brings the pole
on to the sidewalk a short distanct,
bnt it was thought better 10 have
this done than to have the hose tap of
the main interferred with.

BIFID DEVELOPMENT
II CAMP MANSFIELD
A Sample of What Money!
and Energy Can do.
A VERY RICH DISTRICT-
la Loss Thau a Ye-u Unbroken Ground is
Made the Scene o! Operations Keeping a Hundred Men Ensy-
Thern are many miners who believe
tliat the richest minerals are contained iu the highest regions. When a
trace of gold or silver is found in the
highest part of a mining couutry the
chances nre that there is a lot of it
there, nnd that operations will not he
hampered by any succession of faults,
for faults are caused hy slides and
when you are in the highest country
you kuow that the mineral is not there
by any accident of nature. Away up
in the clouds lies Camp Mansfield,
with the Sawtooth range of mountains
shutting off the view to the east nnd
the mighty Kitchener Glnciei forming an everlasting icy barrier on the
southwest. It i ��� beio that a little
mountain brook trickles down from
the miles of ice, to gather strength ns
it tumbles over rocks on it-i journey
eastward and soon becomes the raging
ami foaming south fork of Kaslo creek.
From that same region of everlast
Ing ice Lemon, Woodbury, Cedar,
Coffee aud innumerable other streams
that empty themselvei into the lakes
east, west,aud sonth have their beginning. It is there that the mighty
glacier is slowly carving out the
courses of future waterways as the valleys of the present streams were carved out untold centuries ago. It is the
backbone of the Slocan country. A
Miner representative returned yester
day from a trip on horseback from Slocan City to Kaslo via Camp Mansfield
and the glacier. Thiee snow covered
ranges were crossed in making the
journey. Everywhere the prospector
was encountered And no district was
too wild to have the rough cabin of the
owner that is to spend the winter in
delving for the riches that lie between
his stakes. But the greatest life wnB
in eiideuce at Camp Mansfield, which
shares with the Molly Gibson the distinction of being the highest camp in
the country. The Molly Gibson is on
the southwest side of the glacier and
Camp Mansfield is three miles away
on the other side of the almost impassible immense fields of ice.
; I' was not until 11��' October, jnst a
year ago, that ihe locater of ibe Joker
could persuade any mnn with money
to undergo the hardships of a trip to
the locality. Mr. Ernest Mansfield
had come to British Columbia on be.
half if .,,   orl       ���  , -lsli  c ', otntiens
tO tak��-   up U' yli-.ill.; ',0 tl lit v
while. He visited hundreds of the
best prospects on earth. At least tbe
owners said they were thu best and
they were in an excellent position to
know. But he wanted to get high up
and finally last October he nearly lost
his life iu creasing the glacier in a
raging blizzard, when the yawning
crevices could bo seen only a few feet
away. Tiiere was piao'ically nothing
done on the Joker, but he was impressed with the locality and the formation of the mountains so he promptly
bonded the gronp, Undaunted by the
almost Insurmountable difficulties, hup
plies wero rushed in on men's baoks
cabins constructed aud a shaft com
menoed. Mr. Mansfield's confidence
in the richness of the property proved
lo be well placed, for with every foot
of depth the ore increased in richness
and when work was discontinued at a
depth of 75 feet the richest ore encountered up to that time lay at tbe hot
torn. Its steady improvement indicates that as work continues ore of
great richness will be found and that
the Joker will ultimately he one of the
best mines in the Province. The mine
proved at 75 feet, Mr. Mansfield made
a flying trip to the Old Country,formed
a powerful oompany to take over, the
property and work it. The Excelsior
Gold Mines of B. 0., Limited, now
has the Joker and adjoining claim,
the Derby, and witb a working capital
of $200,000 in the bank, will curry on
the work of development as rapidly as
possible. The shaft will he snnk 800
feet, appliances for doing this work
being already erected, and will give
BOO teet of backs in the south mid of
the Joker and Derby claims. Night
aud day shifts will be at work all winter.
As soon as he had placod the Joker
advantageously, Mr. Mansfield went to
work to secure some more claims in
tbe Joker vicinity, and as a result
practically the whole country in the
immediate vicinity of the Joker is uu-
der his control,   but  bis  holdings are
but a small port of the large region I
that gives exceptionally giod promise.
The Miner the other day told of tho
bonding of foor chums, the Twin
Lakes, Green Lake", Crescent and
Apex. While at Ihe camp this week.
Mr. Mansfield staked a vacant piece of j
Kronnd and iiained il tho Philnmene.
He bought outright the Cbnrlctou and
bondel the Green Lukes fraction for j
.$���1,500, |500 being paid down. He has |
also secured Ihe John A. nnd Trend-
well which adjoin tbe Joker. Mr.
Miller, who is in charge of tbe work
at the Joker, has proved by trenching
that the Joker lend runs the full length
uf the Joker and Derby claims aud
thero is no doubt thnt it also runs
through the Troadwell and John A
nnd probably through the Green Lake
fraction and Twin Lakes. The Crescent is ou the top of tbe Sawtooth
rungo and has a fine strong lead that
can be traced through tbe property.
The ledge is six feet wide with a pay
streak of gold and silver two feet six
inches wide. There are splendid facilities fur developing the property by
tunnelling All these properties have
been taken up for Mr. Reno Lnnril, of
London, Eng., whose agent Mr. Mansfield is.
Three eight-hour shifts are now at
work on the Twin Lakes and cabins
are being erected for the men there.
Pack trains are busy taking in eighty
lo.ids of provisions and supplies from
Slocan City. An assay plant will be
taken up ns soon as possible and will
be in charge of H. L. McCain. Arrangements are now being made to
push the work on the John A. and
Trendwell nnd Mr. Mansfield intends
to drive a 500 foot tunnel at onoe.
Men are now busy erecting cabins to
honse the force that will be at work
nil winter. W, E. Bcie will be iu
charge rf all Mr. Mansfield's opera-
lions. On the other side of the divide the. New York syndicate, repre-
eiited by Mr. Percy Dickinson, are
working the Smuggler group and will
keen a large force goi.ig all winter.
All told about one hundred men will
make Camp Mansfield a very lively
place this winter and next summer
the number will be more than quadrupled. This gives some indication
of the possibilities that the Slocan hns
to offer. A year ago the district was
practically unknown and now powerful English companies aro spending
hundreds of thousands uf dol'ai'S in developing mines there. Very few, if any,
camps can boast Buoh a record. All
the companies are close corporations
aud have no stock to sell ns they have
confidence iu Mr. Mansfield's judgment and intend to keep all tbe profits
for themselves.
The properties have nn al tindance of
timber and the facilities for water
power could not be belter, as two lakes
provide natural reservoirs for a stream
that tumbles one thousand feet over
preoipitious cliffs. At the bottom of
tb se fulls the Joker people will commence the erection of a stamp mill in
tbe spring and the John A. and Tread-
well will probably also have a mill ns
soon ns the spring sets in. There are
two wavs of ren<>hing the camp, from
Slooan City and from' Kaslo As yet
Slocan City has reaped the benefit of
providing many tbnnsnnds of dollars
worth of provisions, bnt Kaslo is tre
natural supply point. However, Kas

.Mansfield is confident that it will be
the greatest producer of them all iu
teu years time. Perhaps a better indication of the difficulties that Mr,
Mansfield had to encounter in the in-
itial stage of the development of the
Joker and the subsequent opening of
this flourishing camp in such it short
time, can be given by a recital of
some of his troubles 'I he Slocan City
route as snowed in and a new route
had to be found. Tbii was to the
Molly Gibson mine and over the
Kitchener Glacier, which lies on the
other side of the peaks from the Kokanee Glacier aud which ia over
twenty square miles in extent while
the Kokanee is hut a few acres, The
supplies were carried in on the backs
of men nt the rate of 17 cents a pound
aud cabins were erected in three feet
of snow.

The directors of the Exchequer Gold
Mining Conipnny hnve received Superintendent H. W. Missou's monthly report for September, and a most gratifying report it is. A striking feature

what is known at the mine as second
class ore. The assays nre for gold only,
and thn list reads as follows: 177.52,
(80.33, $811.81 (from surface quartz),
$!)(). 59, |08.21, *8!i. 11, and $25.23.
The work for tne month bus consisted principally of a drift driven on Ihe
vein from the shaft at the 60 foot level
with a view to opening up striping
ground thnt may he immediii ely available.    The drift is now   in  16>��   feet.
