Daily Edition No. 527.
Nelson, British Columbia, Friday, September 22, 1899.
Tenth Year
Building  Operations  Being
Rapidly Prosecuted.
PROGRESS   OF  BLOCKS.
Material Being [Jsed as Soon as Received
and Every Skilled Mechanio
Kept Bubv.
The magnificent weather of the pas
few weeks has greatly expedited tho
building operations being diligently
proseonted in all parts of the city.
Every skilled mechanic in Nelson is
hard at work and receiving high
wages, aud as yet the demand has been
greater than the supply. Tho brick
companies can hardly supply brick fast
enough and ths lumber firms are working overtime. Twelve men are at
work in ihe stone yard noxt to the
Queen's Hotel, cutting tho white marble that is to beautify nearly all the
blocks in course of construction, aud
every piece is taken away almost as
soon as it is finished. The building
boom is now in full swing, and it
shows no sign of abtement, for as soon
us tbe necessary men can be procured other blocks will be commenced.
Building operations will last well into
the winter.
The Mulone & Tregillis block is now
nil but completed and will be ready for
ocoupanoy in a few days. It is a very
ta--ty building, of two stories aud containing two good sized stores, the interior of each bfing splendidly fitted
tip. The west ono has boen fitted np
for a barber shop, and it is admirably
suited to the purpose, being light and
spacious. In the basement, baths have
been installed and ono of the rooms
Will be fitted up for vapor bath?. This
is the first approach towards a Turkish
bath for Nelson, and its introduction
here should meet witli success. In
front of the hlouk a concrete sidewalk
is being laid. This will also be the
first sidewalk of that description in
Nelson, and it is to bn hoped that the
builders of the other blocks will put on
a finishing touch in the way of a first
class and permanent sidewalk.
A few lots farther np the streot is
the site for Dr. Hall's block. Tenders
are now being called for the excavation
and work will commence shortly. The
building will be stone and brick, the
ground floor consisting of ono large
store.
Across tho corner is tho Houston
hid k, which is rapidly becoming an
exceedingly handsome structure. In
no other buildings nro the red pressed
brick and white marble being used
with suoh striking effect. The ground
floor will he OOOUpied by two stores
and a wide main entrance in the center of the Baker street front will lead
to the offices above.
Around the comer the work of excavating for the bonded warehouse for
Turner, Beeton & Co. is progressing
rapidly. It is understood that this
building will be only the corner of a
large blook that this company will
erect next spring on the corner which
it now ocoupies.
The Bonis blook is climbing sky-
wnrd very rapidly. An army of bricklayers are roshing np the walls and
material is being procured so that
there will not be a moment's delay in
finishing tno blook as rapidly as possible.
The Madden block will bo taking
shape. The retaining wall is being
rapidly built and the work of exoavat-
ing on the innet lots is under way.
Mr. Madden has made every preparation to carry on the work steadily.
Derricks that groan discordantly are
raising huge iron girders for the Hudson's Bay blook, and marble slabs
are being placed in position as rapidly
as possible. The brick work is almost
completed and the stores have assumed
definite shape. Tbe ground lloor will
he divided into two large stores and
the whole upper story will be occupied
by  one  huge  room (or the display of
the large stocks of e*-ery variety that
the company will carry here.
" After all its trouble thiough delay in
delivering material ti,, Bank of Montreal building is again i icene of bustle and business. The walls are being
rushed up and the frame work is being
placed in position.
The registry office building is commencing to grow at the very deop
foundation beneath���20 feet of foundation being required in one place. The
building will be cue story, fire proof,
and will be laid out in offices in a simple and convenient manner.
Ewart & Carrie were the architects
for the registry office, tho Malone,
Hall, Houston, Hudson's Bay aud Turner, Beeton blocks, and also have several residences uudor way.
DREYFUS PHYSICALLY WEAK.
Ho Is Resting Quietly Among His
Relatives and Friends.
Carpentras, France, Sept. 21.���Former Captain Dreyfus arrived here this
morning and went to the house of M.
Valabregue, a relative.
Carpentras, France, Sept. 21.���Although the arrival of Dreyfus at the
home of his brother-in-law, who has
been established as a cloth nierrchaut
here for a quarter of century, was soou
known, no demonstration occurred.
Madame Dreyfus is expected here tonight. While Dreyfus' health does not
permit of his receiving visitors, it is
hoped the climate will restore his
strength during the next few months
which he is expeoted to spend here.
London, Sept. 21.���A correspondent
of tho Daily Mail, who joined the
Dreyfus party at Bordeaux and accompanied them to Carpentras, described
Dreytufl as "thoughtful, prematurely
aged, with soft eyes, a smile like a
woman,and rather the appearance of a
savant than a soldier." When told of
the great wave of British sympathy in
his behalf, he wrung the correspondent's hand and showed deepest emotion. His health, the correspondent
snys, is far from satisfactory. He ate
meat yesterday for the first time.
"It is against the doctor's orders,''
-aid Mathieu Dreyfus.
After the meal, despite his brother's
half laughing protest, he smoked several cigars "to celebrate the holiday."
The sad note amid the rejoicings was
the death of M. Scheurer-Kestner. "I
am grieved beyond words," said Dreyfus, "to think that I shall be unable
to thank that noble heart."
One of the first acts on obtaining his
freedom was to have a wreath sont to
be placed on the coffin of his champion
and friend. At present he spoke little
of past events. He says: "I have
forgiven, but I cannot forget,'' and he
intends to devote himself to proving
his innocence. Whou that has been
accomDliBhed he will only ask to be
allowed to spend the remainder of his
days with his loved ones, far from the
busy world. "His delight at every-
thing," says tho correspondent, "on
our journey, was that of a man returned from the dead to the world he loved.
Tho affection and solicitude of his
brother are touching to see. His physical weakness causes the deepest apprehension to his friends. Tho journey
was in the main uneventful, except
for a few expressions of disappointment of people who endeavored to get
a glimpse of him.''
TERRIFIC EARTHQUAKES.
Extend Over a Distance of 1500 Miles-
Two Severe Shocks.
Seattle, Wn., Sept. 21. ���Alaska has
been shaken by a terrific series of
earthquakes extending over from 1,000
to 1,500 miles of coast. The shocks are
the most violent that have ever been
felt in that part of the world. The
City of Topekn, from Juneau, brought
tbe news here. The earth waves and
tremors extended along the windward
course of the seashore from Juneau to
the Aleutian Archipelago. No doubt
they rumbled on down the Aleutian
Archipelago to Dutch Harbor, and possibly to the furthest islet of the chain.
There were two severe commotions.
The first occurred on Sunday, Sept.
3rd, and the second a week later.
FASHIONABLE WEDDING.
Quebec, SeDt. 20.���Miss Ellen White,
grand-daughter of the late Sir Hugh
Allan, and Mr. O. St. L. Mackintosh,
of Rossland, son of Mr. C. H. Mackintosh, were wedded this morning at the
English Cathedral. The wedding was
the prettiest and most fashionable of
the season. The bride was given away
by her stop-father. Lieutenant Colonel
Wilson, Commander of the Fortress,
and tho bridegroom was accompanied
by his father. Over 000 invitations
were sent out,
SITUATION   UNCHANGED
Vanity Fair Emphatically  Asserts That
There Will be no War.
" NOTHINQ THAT WARRANTS A WAR,"
So Declares President Steyn of the Orange Free State. -
Would be an Insult to Religion and Civilization.���Volksraad's Secret Session.
It
Loudon, Sept. 21.���Vanity Fair, re-
qi.ently well informed regarding po-
htcal secrets today emphatically reiterates the assertion that there will be no
war.    It says:
"President Kruger is an old man,
but he is no dotard. Ha would like to
get his own way, but not at the cost of
defeat.    Climb down he will."
The paper takes the view, which is
shared by several weeklies, that the
alaimist daily papers have created a
fictitious crisis.
Conservative sifting of the conflict-
iiif opinions and rumors now prevail
ing regarding the outcome of the dis-
pate will be more practicable after the
Cabinet meeting, though the official
announcement of the Ministers' decision is likely to be delayed a few days.
those who are doing their best to up-
nold British authority,Bhould conceive
auything in the nature of a retirement
of the position adopted by tho British
Government. Any such weakues would
be fatal to the future maintenance of
British authority in Africa."
Referring to the speech of Sir William Vernon Harcourt, last evening, in
New Treadgare, Sir William said lie
considered it ill advised and injudicious, especially at the present juncture. In his opinion Sir William's assertion that Great Britain could not
claim general sovereignty in tbe
Transvaal when she had only partial
snzertainty would do more than anything else to encourago dissatisfaction.
Loudon, Sept. 21.���Renter's. Telegraph Company announced this evening that no message has been received
by Queen Victoria from President Kruger.
Bloemfonteiu, Sept. 2!.���The Volks-
raad met today with a full attendance.
President Steyn read a carefully prepared speech. After welcoming the
BurgherB he expressed regret that the
relations between the Transvaal, Great
Britain and the Uitlanders had become
strained. Members, he said, were
aware of the meeting of Sir Alfred
Milner and President Kruger, at
Bloemfontein, when Kruger made
proposals which, although refused by
the British High Commissioner, were
unanimously considered througbont the
Orange Free State to be exceedingly
fair. Proceeding to review the negotiations, President Steyn said the
Transvaal had been deceived by the
British diplomatic agent at Pretoria,
Mr. Conyngbam Greene, and he practically accused tho Imperial Government of a breach of faith. He was disinclined to advise the Transvaal Government about the latest British demands. The present critical state of
affairs could uot be a matter of indifference to tbe Transvaal and he therefore convened the Volksraod to decide
what attitude should be taken. "Tinre
is nothing," declated the President,
"that warrants war, or an attack on
the Transvaal. Such differences can be
solved bv arbitration. It would be an
insult to religion and civilization."
In conclusion, President Steyn said he
would take this opportunity to lay certain grant laws before the VolkBraad,
praying God to give the members
strength to pass resolutions not only
conduoivo to peace and prosperity, but
also in the interest of their beloved
state. Immediately after the speech
President Steyn asked the W.lkeraad
to go i.ltO secret session, which was
agreed to unanimously.
Capetown, Sept. 21.��� Sir John Gordon Sprigg, leuder of the Opposition
in the Cape House of Assembly, and
former Premier and Treasurer of Cnpe
Colony, in tbe course of an interview
today, said:
"I have no doubt that a portion of
the population of the Colony would be
active anti-British in the event of war
with the Transvaal. I do not anticipate, any rising, but some of the young
and impulsive Afrikanders would probably show their sympatny by joining
tbe Boer forces. In my judgment the
proceedings at today's mooting of Afrikander members of the Oape Parliament were most injudioious. No mention was made of any sympathy with
those who would suffer while fighting
for the British aide,   It is impossible
London, Sept. 22.���While the precise
reason of the seetet session of the Kaad
of the Orange Free State is not yet
known here, President Steyn's speech
at the opening of tho session it regarded as an almost infallible indication
of the attitude which tin Free State
will take. Commenting from this
point of view, the London morning
papers are all impressed with the added gravity of the situation.
THE BOUNDARY COUNTRY.
Interesting Description of  Towns and
Mines of That Region.
Townsite boomers are very much in
evidence just now throughout the
whole of the Kootenay oountry,bnt the
Boundary District is particularly free
from misrepresentation.
Messrs. Armstrong, Prosideut, and
J. A. Smith, Seoretnry, of the Grand
Forks Townsite Company, are clever,
pleasant men, aud those having dealings with them will find they are consistent and honorable. The same may
be said of A. W. Ross, manager of the
Columbia Townsite Company; W.
Haywood, Summit Townsite Company,
and Messrs. Breckonridgo & Rumburg-
er, of Phoenix.
There are two roads to Greenwood
from Colombia, one mile west of
Grand Forks, where passengers leave
the train at present, viz: the stage
road for 22 mi'es, first through a
beautiful ranching country for three
or four miles,then on through a mountainous aud rough country past the
Winnipeg, Brandon and Coldeu Crown
and Snow Shoe minos, till the Old
Ironsides, Knob Hill, Granhy, Consol
idated, Stemwinder and Brooklyn
mines are passed, all in a hunch, and
surrounding the ucw town of Phoenix.
Four and one-half miles further on,
all down hill, the Btage hauls up at
Greenwood.
Phoenix is being rapidly built up.
Several private dwellings.seven hotels,
five or six stores and many other minor
buildings were in course of erection
when tbe writer passed through there
recently.
Five miles in a northerly direction
over the mountains by trail from
Phoenix takes one to the Oro Douoro
mine, which lays just west of Summit
Townsite. The B. C. mine, with 18,-
000 tons of on; on the dump, is only
half a mile umtb. The R. Bell and
Remmington, bonded to Rossland anil
Spokane parties for $100,000, and in
foil course of development, adjoin the
Summit town, as does also the Emma,
Tiger, Ophir, J. S. Hathmullon and
Victor.
So that when the railway is completed and all these mines start shipping aud employ all the men necessary
to work the properties fully, the Summit town will be a place of no small
importance.
1    It is at present reached from Colum
bia by a good wagon   road, distant     "
miles, and same to Greenwood.    "
started   to   build   two   hotels,     rju.
stores and several dwellings some three
weeks ago.
Ehret Townsite is being handled by
the O. P. R. people. The Ehret Trading Company, managed by Mr. Pend-
rell, of Greenwood, dues a large business at present,with many of the miners above mentioned There are three
or four sawmills between this point
and Cre6u\vood, all doing a lively
business. aF*'''J
Greenwood is a very nice town, with
several very tine large stores well
stocked and equal to anything in the
Province, outside of the wholesale people. As all know, four of the beBt hotels wero destroyed by fires in June
and August. All sincerely regretted
the destruction of the Pacific hotel and
restaurant on tho morning of August
4th. Both were well conducted, and in
consequence largely patronized by the
business community and the mining
men from all the camps in tho vicinity.
Messrs. Madden aud Dallas, who lost
heavily by the fire, commenced to rebuild the Paoifio on the old site some
two or three weeks ago, and it is to be
hoped their energy and enterprise will
prove eminently successful.
The fire brigade was reorganized
after tho last fire in Angust Although
the city has a water pressure of 200
pounds to the inch, there were many
other necessary appliances deficient
which have  since been supplied.
Mr. W. E. Hinton, who owned the
barber shop in the basement of the Va-
citic, lost heavily by the fire. Being
an old and experienced fireman,he was
appointed Chief of the local brigade
after tbe August fire. He has had 12
years experience as a fireman in St.
Paul, Denver, Salt Lake City and
Omaha. Since his appointment he purchased $2,200 worth of hose and other
necessary appliances, arranged for a
team of horses and driver, and a fire
hall is in course of construction under
his supervision, to cost $4,500. He
gives general satisfaction and appeari
to bo the right man in tbe right place.
Mayor Hardy, part owner of the
Russell Hardware Company, is foremost in everything that is likely to
build up the city aud improve tho interests of the commonwealth, This includes the Council and Board of Trade.
The Greenwood Club,under the presidency of Mr. Finncane, manager of
the Bank of Montreal, is a model establishment, occupying the whole of
the upper flat of tho Reudell building.
The members are courteous and hos
pitable. and auy visitor to Greenwood
becoming an honoiary member will always retain friendly remembrances of
his visit.
The surroundings of Greenwood are
extensive and permanent. The Dead-
wood camp, three miles out, Mr. Hector MoRao's mines on the east, all the
mines in the Greenwood and Summit
csmps, at which places the Greenwood
merchants are all putting up branch
stores, establishes the city's prosperity
and permanence.
Tho second road from Grand Forks
to Greenwood runs parallel with the
Railway, occasionally skirting tbe
banks of the North Fork of tho Kettle
Rivor. It, passes through Niagara, a
village in the past tense, climbs over
the summit, close to the Ratiiuiuilen,
Victor and B. C., on to Ehret and
down hill to Greenwood, The travel
over this road is limited, owing to its
had state. , .
The line to the Summit and Greenwood camps branches off the main line
at Ehret. There is another branch
from Greenwood to Deadwood camp.
Iliis passes close to the smelter now
being erected by the proprietors of the
Mother Lode mino.

Disgraceful Scene in the Boston Music Hall.
CALLED   UPON   POLICE.
A. Eedlam for Nearly  Three  Hours.���A
Congressman Made to Take
His Seat.
Boston, Mass, Sept. 21.���Tho riotous
soene and bitter figlits between the two
factions of the Democratic party in
this state, which characterized aud
made famous the all-night Bessiou in
the Music Hall here in 1890, and that
at Worcester, the following year, were
renewed with greater bitterness at the
annual convention of tbe state Democrats at the Hall today. There was
hardly a minute until the speeches of
the temporary and permanent presiding officer were concluded, when there
was quiet and harmony In auy degree.
At times the entire delegation was
upon its feet, the members standing
on chairs or tables, shouting in the beat
of passion some denunciatory remarks
ut tbe chairman,or the person who was
judeavoring to speak upon the platform. At times it seemed as if even
the presence of one hundred policemen
in the hall ,vould lie of no avail,so impassioned were those upon tho floor.
The climax came when at the request
of Chairman W. S. McNary, the captain of police appeared upon the platform, and placed his hand upon Congressman John E Fitzgerald, in readiness to forcibly remove him from the
platform had he not subsided and allowed tbe chairman to address and
oalm the excited assemblage.
Tho cause of the tumult which raged
for nearly three hours was the question
before the bod}-of accepting the action
of the state committee in presenting a
list of delogatea to the national convention of Democrats next June. It
was claimed by those who opposed the
idea that it was against all precedent,
and robbed the "arious districts of
thoir constitutional rights. The final
result of all the confusion aud discord
was the overwhelming passage of overy
motion and report that was made by
the state committee or that portion .if
the party organization which is guided by Mr. George Frederick Williams,
namely, the adoption of the platform
as presented, the nomination of a state
ticket and the election of national convention delegates, headed by Robert
Treat Payne, Jr., candidate for governor, and John H. Muck, for Lieutenant Governor, aud the election of national convention delegates.
GRAND FORKS IMPROVEMENT.
Victoria, Sept.21.���The Grand Forks
Water Power and Light Company have

THE  MALIGNER AGAIN.
Nine   months   ago   Mr. John Houston's paper had certain knowledge that
The Min��r under its  present   management would shortly develop iuto a Liberal organ.    It   would also support the
Semi in Government.    As there was no
pronounced   manifestation    of    cither
within   a   reasonable   time, the paper
shifted   about   and declared   that Tbe
Miner would beoome an   organ of   the
Conservative party,    As   this  did not
appear to be  any nearer the mark, the
next venture was to say that it was an
organ of the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company.    Then   it,  was the organ of
Mackenzie & Mann, and in   the course
of   time   of   various other persons and
corporations.    Tho   matter appeared to
givo the   liveliest conoern to the back-
kitchen gossip, and   not   content with
discovering  and   assigning policies, it
undertook to enlighten  its  readers  as
to the exact  condition of  The Miner's
bank account.    Tbe  next   step was to
interfere with its domestic affairs, and
an   effort  was made to create friction
between the management  and the employees of the office.  When The Miner's
supplement appeared in July there was
rather a desperate  attempt on the part
of   that   extraordinary   paper   and its
conductor to  prejudice   the  minds  of
the public by a  process of  defamation
that   seems   to   be   natural   to   both
Runners   were employed   to decry the
supplement   and   prevent   collections.
This   very singular paper with the not
too  delicate sensiblities could not find
auy meddling too  contemptible to engage in.
Its latest story is to the effect that
The Miner is the organ of tbe Mine
Managers, to whom it has sold itself
for a consideraton that is too involved
in description to be exactly understood.
Enough is explained, however, to betray the motive of the paper, which is to
do The Miner as much injury as it can.
It is just as correct in this matter as
it has been in the many others at
which it has tried its hand from time
to time, and not more so. Tin
Miner is not an organ of anybody
or anything, and is as independent of the mine owners as its jenlous
and malicious contemporary. It defines
its own policy and pursues it without
regard to the likis or dislikes of
others, concerned only to avoid needless offence or irritati m, and to keep
within the bounds of honorable discussion. Before it knew there was a Mine
Managers' Association, either in existence or in contemplation, it had formed the conclusion that the Eight-Hour
law was a mistake, aud had resolved
to tatn issue with the Government aud
its other supporters as to the expediency of passing it. If wo have earned by
our attitude on the question any claim
to the gratitude or friendly consideration of the managers, wo shall esteem
ourselves happy in the sense of their
appreciation, and if it shall bring us
patronage of any kind we shall accept
it as the guerdon for which all newspapers profess to work. But in case
our contemporary may not otherwise
be able to comprehend, whieh is extremely probable in the light of its
character, we mar state that nothing
will bo received from them, as we are
sure nothing would be offered, that we
cannot accept without the slightest
sacrifice of principle, the least surrender of independence, and the staunch-
est adherence to legitimate methods of
journalism,
It is not, pleasant to feel obliged to
enter into explanations such as these,
and there would be uo necessity if The
Miner did not happen to havo as a
rival in the field a newspaper that is
conducted on lines from which the
qualities of decency and honor have
boon eliminated as superfluous.

They were all mailed as usual, no
doubt, but miscarried somewhere. It
has not been quite as bad as this, but
the irregularities nave continued without intermission for the past nine
months. We do not know where the
fault lies The atteution of the Post
Office Inspector for this division has
been called to the fait that the mail
service has been most unsatisfactory
for a long time past. There is fault
either in the dispatching office, in the
transmission by train,or in the receiv
ing office, we do not know whicb. But
it is the duty of the Inspector to ascertain, because be is hired and paid for
that purpose, on I his constant neglect
to seo that tho service is performed
with some reasonable regard to regularity suggests tho necessity of supplanting hi 111 by another who has a
livelier sens? of his duty to the public.

I THE   QUEEN...
MAKE THE LAW UNIVERSAL.
Editor of The Miner.
In this morning's issuo of   The Tribune appears a paragraph  to the effect
that local coal dealers  should be  ab'.e
to get coal delivered  for  less than one
dollar per ton.    I would suggest to the
writer that perhaps   it might be possible to reduce the cost of hauling within the City limits if the  blacksmiths,
wheelwrights,harness-makers and feed
merchants could   be induced to charge
less than they do, but as none of them,
inolnding the teamsters, appear  to  be
making large fortunes,or even a living
in some cases, the natural inference is
that  hauling   charges at  least are not
too high.    I must   say it strikes u casual reader as rather curious   that   The
Tribune   should   advocate the  cutting
down   of   prices, considering   that for
months   past   it has been chiefly occupied iu trying to   force  employers  to
pay miners over forty  cents  per  hour
for  work  that  most men can do with
very little practice.  If it were possible
11 pay teamsters at the  same  rate   as
miners   aro   supposed   to   want,   they
would earn about   $7.50 a day, considering that   they never work less   than
14  out  of  the 84   hours, and as far as
danger to life and   limb is  concerned,
or the particular kind of brains needed
in the two branches of   work,   I  have
b^en amongst  miners and   teamsters a
good  many   years, and  challenge any
man to prove that it  requires a better
class of man to work in a mine than it
does   to drive horses, or that   thero   is,
more danger iu it.    If The Tribune, or
any  of  the other socialistic agitators,
is or are sincere in wishing to help the
workingman to work less and get morn
pav, why does it not advocate that the
Eight-Hour Law   slid]   apply  to  all
workers   clerks, sawmill men, railroad
men. loggers,   farm   hands,   teamsters
and everybody.    This basin ss of picking  out a   curtain   class   of   laborers,
making pets of   them, and   legislating
especially for their benefit, leaving the
rest   to   rustle   for  themselves as best
they oan, appears to me to be (las-: prejudice  of   the   worst, kind, could only
emanate from men   with   neither education nor experience, nucl .Mist surely
end  by attending its own funornl     If
The   Tribune   will   cause   this or any
other Government to enact   thai teamsters shall not work more than eight
hours per day, 1 am with them entirely, but if one clas-i of wooers i , in get
all the meat and the rest  all tho bono.
I for one will   buck against the whole
business as long as 1 am able, and never take less than a dollar to haul a ton
of coal. TEAMSTER.

SENTBD BY MEN AND MINERALS
Special Oars Will be Provided and the City
is Expected to Make a Very
Favorable Showing.
international Day nt the Spokane
Exposition will bo a successful ono if
the nttondanoe of a, large delegation
from Nelson can assist iu making it
so. The indications are that a large
inttulior of people from hero will take
advantage of the reduced rates to at-
tend tlie, Exposition and that they will
have the interests of the oity sulli-
oiently at heart to attend in a body
and make the best possible representation for Nelson. That wonderful
Grand Army liand that tho Spokane
papers sneak of so highly will be at
the depot to meet the visitors from
this side of the line when they arrive
on the night of the Bth of October, and
tbe Union .Tack will bo very much in
evidenoe on tho 10th, Tuesday, which
will be International Day. That band
will make prodigious efforts to blow
the curves out of the brass instruments
in celebrating the day with Eritish
airs. The intention is to secure one or
more cars, especially for tbe Nelson
penplo. The Great Northern bus promised a car, and of course that means
that it will supply as many as can te
filled. Those cars will be decorated in
a deserving maimer, and us tho train
sweeps through the, towns to the south
of us the people along the, line will
have no excuse for not knowing that
Nelson"iB a decidedly lively and wideawake town. The railway faro will
depend on the number going, so it is
absolutely necessary that the railway
company should have somu figure to go
on, as when asked to got the price
down as low as possible Tho Board
of Trade, at a special meeting held
yesterday, appointed Messrs "W. A.
Jowett and W. H. Dowsing a committee to ascertain how many were likely
to go.and to apply to the railway company for n rate. Something considerably below the regular ono way fare of
JI).40 should be secured for the round
trip if the Nelson party is large
enough. So it remains the duty of all
those who intend going to notify either
member of the committee of the fact
in order that at the adjourned meeting
on Monday afternoon next,a close estimate of the strength of the party can
be made. Two cars should be none too
big to hold the Nelson pilgrims. Nearly all tho members of tho Board of
Trade present at yesterday's meeting
signified their intention of going.
When tho meeting was called to order there were present: J. Koderii k
Robertson, President; H. J. Evans, V.
W. Swanell, W. A. Jowett, W. A.
Macdonnld, O, ('���., W. H. Dowsiug, A.
H. Kelly, \. G. Gamble, Bol t Ken-
wiok, R. .1. Hanltniu, H. K. Bellamy,
P. Lamont, Dr   Arthi r.
Che Piosidenl explained the object
of the meeting.
Mr. Dowsing, who has recently
been in Spokane, said that grea* preparations were being made) for the re
oeption of the Canadians on Internationa] Day The Great: Northern hud
promised to put a special car at the
disposal of the  Nelson  delegation.
Mr. Bellamy reported for the Mineral Speoimen Committee chat a splendid collection had been made. There
were 54 different properties represented. The cost of making the collection
was $89.45.
Mr. Swaimoll said that $175 had
been promised by the citizens of Nelson to meet the expense of making tbe
collection and sending it to Spokane.
Mr. Gnmblo brought up the matter
of railway fares when the consideration of the invitation came up. After
a loug discussion, on motion of W. A,
Macdonald Messrs. Jowett and Dows-
ing were appointed a committee to ascertain how many will accompany a
Nelson party to tho Exposition, and to
make the best possible arrangement for
rates. Another meeting will be held
ou Monday afternoon to consider tho
report of the committee.
Gfeo C. Tunstall, Jr., W. H. Dowsing, Gilbert Stanley,   E. Nelson   Fell,
 Wynn, and Martin O'Reilly were
nljcted members of the Board. Some
facetious member registered an objection against the election of Mr. Tun-
sfall on account of his size, but the
President ruled it out of order and the
meeting adjourned.
Tho splendid collection of ore samples, which the committee now has
complete, will be packed at onoe and
shipped to Spoknno in order that it
may secure a piaco of advantage in the
exhibit. Mr. H. K. Bellamy will accompany it and look after it in tho interests of the Nelson district. After
the Exposition the display will be returned to Nelson and will form the
neiiolus of a collection that tho Boar!
"r Trade hopes will beoomo a very
hirge and representative one.
ANOTHER   LIE   NAILED.
Dnicns Will Not Allow Miners to Accept Contract Work.
several prominent Blooan miue own-
��s are in the Oity. They state positively that tho owners are not weaken-
'"�� an iota iu their determinaitou not
to be held up by the demands ol the
unions, and that not one of the mines
now closed down will be opened until
the law is repealed or until the men
will aooept the wage of $3.00 for eight
hours' work.
The statement has been made that
the unions allow miners to aooept contract work. A working miner took a
contract at one of the big mines in the
Slocau and offered men $3.50 for eight
hours' work in order to carry out his
coutract. The union in the district in
which tho ininn is located refused to
allow the men to accept tho positions,
and the contract had to be thrown up.
If the unions will not even allow the
men to accept |S.50 for eight hours'
work it looks as if there was more of
a mo-piracy against some mines than
an effort to obtain what they consider
their rights.
BISHOP PERRIN HERE.
Tho Rt. Kav. Bishop Perrin has arrived in Nelson from Victoria, to act
for the Bishop of New Westminster,
and will proceed to Ainsworth this
afternoon, where lie will hold a confirmation in the evening. Returning

Morning Prayer at 10 a, m., Ordination at 11 a. in., Children's Seniceat

Hon. .1. Fred Hume, Milliliter of
Mines, was in town on Sunday, British Columbia will make a really tine
display at the Paris Exhibition, Hon.
Mr. Home said, when asked as to tho
progress made in the collection of minerals to send to France. "It would
have been even a better exhibit had
everyone promised sent in specimens,
but it was impossible for better results to be obtained with the funds at
the disposal of the department. Three
or four carloads have ulready been
shipped to Ottawa, where the Dominion Government will take charge of
the transportation, and there are on
hand yet, enough exhibits to fill two
cars, if anyone else bus exhibits to
send they must hmrry up now, as the
whole exhibit should have been shipped by September l."���Vancouver
News-Advertiser.

Samples   of  ore from  tbe properties
of the Boniitti Bank  Mining Company
are   on   exhibition   in the window of
The   Miner office, says  The  Rossland
Miner.    These   samplos   carry copper,
silver and gold.    There are   six claims
in  the group, whioh   are   located   on
Toad Mountain, near the  properties of
the   Silver   King   Mining   Company,
There   are five leads on the properties.
Two of these leads are parallel and run
the full length of two claims     One of
these  leads  is   80   feet wide, and the
other   is   only a little   smaller.    The
other three  leads are from G to 12 feet
in   width, and   carry   goodjadues in
gold,   silver   and   copper.  *fHft 'J. R.
Cranston,of this city,has charge of the
work of developing those claims,and at
present  has  four men at work.    This
force will be   increased   when the exigencies demand.   Tho company which
is   operating   these properties was organized recently by Toronto people.
*   *   *
The   fact   that  the   long negotiated
deal  has  been   finally made  whereby
the    Fidelity-Bosun     properties    are
amalgamated and put under   the management of W. H. Sandiford.has led to
the gradual leaking out of information
as   to   the   late   important find  made
upon the Fidelity ground by workmen
under the   direction of   Mr. Sandford.
The facts relating to the finding on the
Fidelity, as told   by one who ought to
know, are these:   After  much  trench
digging and   prospecting  huge  bodies
of clean galena ore   wore   encountered
in the   vicinity  where   the   first   find
was   made   by the original locators of
tlie Fidelity, Messrs. Williamson, Holtz
and Byron. This one float was followed
up the hill from the   Bosun workings,
and into one of  the open cuts made by
the original holders.    There,   scarcely
six inches  from the face   of   the open
cut, u body of  ore four feet across was
uncovered.    The dirt   was   hardly   of
snllicient weight   to   cling to the   ore
body ;  in fnct, it is said there are pick
marks  upon   the   ore made by the old
owners.     Had   they   worked   another
shift in tho open out they would   have
oncountered the ore. It has been traced
by Mr. Sandiford for several   hundred
feet, and runs into  Fidelity Bluli.    It
is without doubt the   most   important
find   made   in   this   camp   in   recent
years, and   proves  the Fidelity-Bosun
property to  be one of  unexcelled   importance.
