London, Nov. 13.���Careful   inquiries
imde by tne   Associated   Press   reveal
nothing extanl   In   diplomatic   circles
here to justify the alarmist view taken
y a section of Hie press regarding the
situation in the  far East.    That a serious   denoui mint   is so close   at bund
s is indicated by advices from Sliang-
hai during the last twenty-lour hours,
��� ���- regarded ns  incredible.   For a long
time   it   has   been    known   here   that.
China and Japan   were closely   Allied,
nut   neither    British     nor    American
liplomata in London believed that this
alliance is of an  offensive nature.   At
any rate it can   bo   asserted positively
that if Japan and   China  contemplate
aggressive action in Russia, Lord Salisbury is not aware of  their   intention,
and it is scarcely   probable   that theso
powers would decide upon any definite
course   without   ut     least   consulting
Ureal Britain   who, in   tho nature  of
llungs,   would be tbeir   ally, whether
active   or   passive.    However,     while
the Foreign Oilier' officials have no information lending   to   confirm   recent
sensational reports, they   havo come to
regard the eastern   problem as so difficult in respect of getting   information
that Ihey would   be surprised at nothing.    Thev huve   endeavored   to  tako
precautions   against    everything,   In
tlio words of a British officer who   discussed the situation with a representative of the 'Asscoiated Press.
"While reports of a rupture between
Knssiii nud Japan nre easy of creation, and while they aro liable to con-
-stunt reiteration so long as the diplomatists of the pie^s continne to view
the Ear East with such sorions attention, it is certainty palpable that if
Japan really means to strike n serious
blow at Russian control, she must do
it quickly for very soon, Russia will
be far stronger than she is now."
Discussing the bearings uf Russia's
naval estimates upon this question, tho
official asserted that it is certainly indicated that the intention of the Cznr
is to increase tho Russian fleet in
Chinese wntor, winch, if dono on the
scope outlined iu the estimates, would
leave Japan but little chance.
"Another pluse of theso reports
which has astonished me," said the
official, "is the suggestion of Chinese
OO-operation, Thus far iiii nation has
been able to arouse the Chinese sullici-
cinly in get them to combine in military enterprises. If Japan has dono
this, or even believes she has, then
she has accomplished more than Great
,-ii'itain or Russia in a century of
efforts,"
ine aotioil of (he United States Gov-
nrnmeul in requesting the assurance
from foreign governments regarding
tne "open door" policy in China has
created intense dissatisfaction in foreign offioial circles.
"Lord Salisbury," according to the
official quoied above, "has gladly ac-
quiesoed in tins step on tho part of tlm
United Stales, which is regarded as
mi's', potent evidence   tbat   the United
Slates reoognized the impossibility of
conducting their foreign affairs without the co-operation of other nations,
and is thi- lirst practical earnest of
their desire to conduct eastern negotiations in concert with European, governments.

but we shall be depending on a broken
reed if we rely on a representation of
this kind to get it for us. Gold is
smuggled out of the Yukon to evade
the royalty, in what quantity can only
be conjectured, but it is impossible
to believe that it goes to swell the
product of the United States. The
mint authorities must of necessity
know where tho gold comes from, and
they are surely not so dishonest as to
put down to tbe credit of the United
States what is brought in from other
countries. Uur own authorities should
know exactly what goes out cf Canada,
always, of course, excepting the quantity smuggled ; and tho fact tbat we
arc thus cheated is less an argument
for a mint than for a reduction of the
royalty.
Telephone  No.  144.
THE FRENCH TAKTE.
Unless to gain some notoriety for
himself, we do not know why Mr. J.
Castell Hopkins should have engaged
in a correspondence with Mr. Tarte
on the question of tho Canadian contingent. A study of the letters fails
to disclose any useful purpose that
has beeu served by it. And it can
hardly be said to have been necessary
iu order to keep Mr. Tarte in the publio mind. His course in opposing the
dispatch of a Canadian battalion is
not likely to be forgotten for many a
day, and just at present it is keeping
the Government organs in a condition
of mind bordering on distraction.
They dare not denounce Mr. Tarte, a
political soldier of fortune who could
destroy Sir Wilfrid Laurier in Quebec,
aud they writhe with pain and shame
in excusing him.
It has afforded our French Minister
an opportunity to reduce his opposition
to ii ground that is not so apt to sxcite
public indignation as the broader one
of his natural sympathies. "What I
object to," he says, "is that we are
called upon'to raise troops and to pay
money without having any right whatever of representation in Imperial
councils." A sentence from a recent
speech of Lord Rosebery's is sufficient
answer to this. Speaking at Bath and
referring to the assistance of the Colonies as evidence that the contest was
with a world-wide Empire.he corrected
himself and said: "No, not their
assistance, for, thank God, we
can do without tbat; hut to
show their sympathy and their
resolution to bo one with the Mother
Country in the hour of trial. " Canada
was not called upon to take part. To
be called upon implies authority tu
enforce obedience. There was no pretension of that kind on the one side
nor fear of it on the other, as Mr.
Tarre knows. What Canada did was
not nnder compulsion, but voluntarily
and through feelings of loyalty and
devotion. I
It was a free-will offering, and Mr.
Tarte did all he could to prevent its
being made. He did it because be wns
not iu sympathy with the sentiment
that inspired it, He could not be.
Over in Paris a few months ago be
spoke of France as "his conutrj.''
When eluded for flying the French flag
on a Canadian Government vessel
when employed on an official cruise,
ho said : "I shall go out of the Government when I have not the liberty
to float tho dear flag of France. " Another recent remark of his was: '"If
to declare myself a British subject
would prevent me from being French,
then 1 would refuse to cnll myself a
British subject. " Citizen Tarte may
nurse whatever prejudices ho chooses,
but Minister Tarte is expected to be a
British subject before all else and to
proclaim the fact from the housetops
if necessary. No one would trouble
Citizen Tnrto, but all aro obliged to
take note of Minister Turte. He is the
dominant character ot the Government-,
Tho Premie: is bnt putty in his
hands. France hates England, and
would gladly sen her meet disaster in
the Transvaal ; Mr. Tnrto is French.
When it was proposed to sond a Canadian contingent, not in response to a
"call" but to show our "sympathy
and our'resolution to be one with the
Mother Country in ner tiino of trial,"
Mr. Tarto's French asserted itself and
he endeavored to defeat our purpose.
He played upon the woak Premier,
and induced him to raise objections
nnd to suggest difficulties that would
mako it impossiblo to furnish the aid
intended. A Minister of snob influence and power, who is French before he
is British, may some day shame ns. He
would have shamed ns on this occasion if the violence of tho public indignation had not frightened the Premier into action.
Referring to Ihe immunity from interference in this Transvaal shindy, a
writer says tbat it is due in the first
place to the existenco of the United
States ns a factor in the words's affairs,
and, next, to the attitude of the.Gorman Emperor. Theso are influences
that have not been without substantial
effeot; bnt the most potent of nil has
doubtless been the skillful diplomacy
of Lord Salisbury, who, during the
past half dozen years, has proved himself to be oue of the ablest Foreign
Secretaries in the history of the nation.
In the East and in tlio Far East he
was confronted with problems of the
most delic.'.to and difficult nature, and
was successful iu all of them. His
great ability is attested in the fact that
Britain is having a free hand in the
Soudan. If the United States is a factor in the world's affairs today, instead of years hence, it is because Lord
Salisbury, seeing advantage in it to
the general peace and prosperity, hastened tho development by a policy skillfully planned and carried to a successful issue with infinite labor and patience. He h:is played on strings reaching to every quarter of tho world, and
in every case with the ability of a
master.
The Sardinian, with the Canadian
contingent,shonld be as far as the Cape
Verde Islands by this time. Another week should briug her within
sight of the Capo. British transports
are arriving thick and fast. The first,
which was ordered to continue to Durban, should have reached that port not
later than Sunday. By the end of the
week reinforcements should bo getting
within hailing distance of Ladysmith,
and if all go well until then the
Boers will begin to realise that Natal
is getting too hot for them.

NELSON DAILY MINER, TUESDAY-NOVEMBER 14,  1899.
THE FIRST COURT
ODD TALK WITH 0LD-TIMER3 OF
NELSON.
Judge Sproat on a Tree Stump at Forty-
Nine Oreek Imposes a Fine of
Fifty Dollars.
"I'm nftor   doing   the  deed,"   said
au old-timer to a Miner  reporter  the
other day at the Government offices.
"What deed?" ���wan asked.
"I mill registering a deed, doing the
deed," sai I the old-timer, aud then lie
launched into a strain of reiniuis-
cenoes. "I remember thn time," said
he, "when 011 the site of this court
house tlitne was an hotel under canvas. It was run by .Toliu Ward nnd old
Darkey Smith, who used to ve about
Nelson Borne time ago but who is now
in the Old Men's Home nt Kamloops.
was the nook. You might think an
hotel under oniivas something to be
avoided but I tell you they used to put
up a first-class meal. Tho furniture
was brought from Spokane and included spring mattresses."
"You had no court house in those
days" was sng^nsted.
"Oomt house! Ah, no. The first
court hold about here wns in June
1888, when .fudge Sproat sat on the
stump of a tree at Forty-Nine Creek
and tried Harry Sherrin for shooting
at a fellow named Wilson. The open
air oonrt was crowded. Tbey were
then bnilding the trail, and all the
boys left oil' work and come in to hear
the case. Sherrin was working for Bob
Lemon at the stone at Sproat's Landing, and Wilson stolo a $20 gold piece.
Sherrin tracked him with his rifle
and made him givo up the money. He
then orderod the fellow to leave the
country and threatened to shoot him if
he did not do so. Wilson took tho
hint, and getting down the banks of
Ihe Slocan River, he got on to the log
raft intending to cross, but the current
was too strong for him and he was
swept over the Kootenay rapids and
was drowned. Then ISherrin was arrested, and nt the open air court lie
was lined |50 and costs. The first raft
brought down the Columbia river
wus by Mr. Lemon, nnd I believe thnt
Wilson came down by that. Lemon
was very good to him, bnt the fellow
���uns no good, for he robbed him at the
liist chance. Thn country was not well
polired in those days, and when a chap
of this class was cuught the boys always oidered him ont, if they did
nothing worso to him. At lhat time
Judge Sproat used lo live under canvas
at a point about where the city wharf
now stands. Anderson was the constable and recorder and ho lived in a
tent down nt Bogustown A. ,1. Marks
had another holel under canvas about
where llie Nelson Hotel is now, with
Van Mess as a uartner. Nelsou was
not much of a place in those days."
concluded the old-timer as he walked
oil', adding, ''I'll see jou again."

THE PROCESSION   OF  METEORS.
riii' Present Week Will Be an Interesting.One For, Astronomers.
Astronomersjboth in the old and new
worlds have commenced their watoh
for tne procession ot meteors which
should be seen in its full brilliancy
during tho presont week. Owing to
the rnre occurrence of this astronomical display extraordinary preparations
have been made at tho big observatories for observing its progress. A similar opportunity will not be afforded
until the year 19;j2, when tho earth
will again pass through tho train of
meteoroids traveling after Temple's
comet. The metenrbid train, which is
several hundreds of millions of miles
in length, is supposed to be travelling in nn eliptioal orbit which at one
point crosses the orbit of the earth.
The ellipse travsled by tho meteoroids
is so large thut, although the proees
sion moves with a velocity of abont
211 miles a second, it still takes over 85
years to make the round trip. The
train of uieteors.is so long that it takes
it, moving at the rate of 26 miles per
second,several years to cross the earth's
or hit.
When a meteoroid Btrikes the earth's
atmosphere it becomes luminous. The
friction caused by the mereoroid passing through the atmosphere at a velocity of 20 miles a sdcoud makes the
meteoroid an incandescent mass. Occasionally a meteoroid is shattered in
pieces, which fall to the earth. Sometimes it strikes the earth itself and at
otbor.jimes it passes through only a
corner of the earth's atmosphere
During the next three or four nights
the astronomers at the university observatories and elsewhere will attempt to count the number of meteors
visible in a given time, to note the
colors of tho different meteors and
to observe the paths of the more important ones.

BOARD OF TRADE
ASSEMBLES AT LAST
Several Important Resolutions are Passed-
TO REPAIR OITY WHARF
City Council Called Upon to Submit a
By-Law to the People���Nelson
a Divisional Point.
A meeting of the Rnard of Trade
wns held last night, Mr. J. Roderick
Robertson, president, in the ohair
Tln*re were iilao present. MeasrH. Jas.
Lawrence, V.-P. ; F \V. Swanuell,
Sec., J. M. Lay, D. J. Evans, T. G.
Proctor, M. O'Reilly, C. Hillyer, H
Byers, W. H. Dowsing. A. Ferland,
Jas. Baunomian, J. J. Campbell and P.
Lamont.
The secretary read the minutes of
the last regular meeting, held on July
111, ithat at which the famous delegation restrictions were imposed on those
attending the meeting of the joint
Boards of Trade at Rossland), and the
subsequent adjourned and spenial
meetings, all of which wore verified
without discussion.
The secretary next read n few replies
he had received from persons to whom
the pamphlet on Nelson nnd its re
sources was sent, which were very
flattering. Also a letter from Bull-
roan Bros., of Winnipeg, whose
are the cuts used in the pamphlet.
Mr. Swannell explained that he forwarded the cuts to the Mining Record,
Victoria, for reproduction, and read a
letter thankfully acknowledging receipt of same. He also submitted correspondence recoived from the secretary of the joint boards of trade in
reply to representations for a better
postal service. Mr. Gamble said ho
had been given to understand that if a
mail clerk were put on the trains west
of Calgary they would secure a better
seivice here.
It was explained, however, that coming round by Spokane, as at present, a
considerable saving of time was affected. The matter was discussed at considerable length, and a committee consisting of Mr. Gamble, Mr. Banner-
man and the secretary were appointed
to enquire into it and report to next
meeting.
A liurabor of small accounts were
passed, to lie paid when funds permit.
C. W. Reilly was on motion elected
a member of the board without ballot
A letter was read from P. Burns &
Co., asking that as representing the
film the name of Mr. T. Allen bo substituted for that of Mr. W. H. Grant.
After some discussion it was deoided
to make Mr. Allen an honorary member for the rest of the current year.
A letter was read from Mr. G. E. C.
Martin, of the Kootenay Supuly Co.,
asking that the by-laws be amended so
as to allow of firms selecting an employe tc represent them on the bourn
in the absence of tho principals.
Mr. Gamble thought that if firms
wanted one or more representatives
on the hoard they should lie prepared
to pay tin' usual foes.
'Ihe ohairm.m suggested thnt the
mutter iir left over until the beginning
01 th�� year ivh n n i- other ulli rations might Im in ih   ,11 tin- by-laws.
1 ii s e ins. a ..il p ,'���>, 'i.e members being invited to look over t'10 inlaws and suggest snaii alterations as
they ought deem advisable���said tug-
gentians io be forwarded to th. se re
tarj before the d,,to of meeting
Mr. Lawrence was invited to give
bis experience as to the shipping of
goods 10 the Boundary nountry.
Mr. Lawrence suid ho did uot see
uny use 111 taking such a course at
present. Nothing could tie done to
remedy the matter until the railway
was completed, which would be soon.
At present it took from twenty to
thirty days to go' goods in thore from
Nelson.
Chairman���There is a matter which
has boon brought informally to my notice by members of the board and others in commotion with the city wharf.
The Government, I understand,
have turned it over to the oity. The
condition of the wharf is no credit to
Nelson, nor is it safe for the amount
of business done there. I observed the
otbor day a letter in the newspaper
from Mr. West, calling attention to
the danger of the wharf, and invited
him to become a member of the board
and hring his grievance before us. ��� It
is a subject in which wo are all interested���nnd 1 think it would be quite in
order to move a resolution requesting
the oity council to seriously cousidei
the inbjeot, aud place the wharf in a
satisfactory uondition. No doubt the
council have done a lot during the yoar
in the way of opening np streetH, etc.,
and poHsilily tbey do not, care to spend
more money without an expression of
opinion from the people. The wharf,
as at present, is neither safo for pas-
congers nor trallio. I can spoak feelingly on the point, as I was neurly
going over It tlio other day. I was hur
rying down to catch the boat, and
whether the teamster I met bad anything in for me or not, or whether his
wagon was too big, or 1 wns too big, I
don't know, but 1 was nearly knocked
over (laughter). I tbink it ought to
be made a decent, substantial wharf
with sidewalks fnr people who wished
to enjoy a walk. We might, perhaps,
ask tho Government to do something
for us. A couple of thousand dollars
expended on it ought to make a decent
wharf.
Aid. Hillyer said that, about six
weeks ago the wharf was taken over
by the city, bnt that tho council, who
would be going out of office at the end
of the year, did not see their way
clear to expending any considerable
sum ou the wharf���they would leave
that to their successors. Some repairs
had been made, but to replank the
wharf wonld take from $1200 to$1,500,
while to widen it, and put it in proper
,-ihape, would probably cost from $4, -
OHO to $5,000, and to raise this amount,
a by-law would have to be submitted
to the raetpayers.
The chairman asked if such a by-law
could not be voted on at the same time
as that about to be submitted for privileges to bo extended to the C. P. R.
in lieu of their doing what was asked
of them.
Aid. Hillyer agreed that the opportunity might  be availed of.
Mr. Baunerman thought that now
that concessions were about to be made
to the C. P. R., it would bo a good
time to ask the company to concede
something to the city. He suggested
that the company be asked for some
three hundred feet iu width of the water frontage west of the wharf. This
could be made a good dumping ground,
and some valuable laud might thus be
made for warehouses, factories, etc.
Suoh a course was adopted in other
cities, he knew of, and it ultimately
proved a source  of revenue.
Aid. Hillyer doubted if the land in
question belonged to the railway company.
In tho discussion whioh ensued oe
this subject it was pointed out that au
attempt had been made to prevent tli6
saw mill from being elected on the
water front and it failed.
The matter was left in the hands of
the city council.
A resolution was passed calling upon
the city council to submit a by-law to
raise funds for the repair of the wharf,
simultaneously with tbat about to.be
voted on for privileges to the O. P. R.
It was also resolved the board view
with pleasure thnt the C. P. R. are
about to establish machine shops and
make Nelson a divisional point, and
trust tbat the Oity and the railway
company will succeed in making satisfactory arrangements.
Mr. Ferland moved, seconded by Mr.
Baunerman that the ('. P. R. bo requested to give their holiday excursion from
Nelson to the east, ns they do from
points cast of Calgary. It. was explained by the mover that from McLeod and
Calgary thera were excursions, at reduced rates, given annually to points
in eastern Canada, and if these excursion rates prevailed here it would be
advantageous to those desiring to go
eiiBt.
The resolution passed, a rider being
added asking the Spokane Falls &
Northern ami Northern Paoiflo railway
companies to extend   like privileges.
Mr. Bannerman called the attention
of the hoard to the doloctive telephone
service of Nelson, and suggested thai ii
committee bo appointed to secure tie
signatures of those us ng phones to an
agreement tnat if the mirvioe be lint
improve.i forthwith, they would censi

Several uiemlisis gave testimony to
the unsatisfactory seivice, and it was
decided in Instruct the Beoretary to
write to Superintendent Kent, at Victoria, setting forth in iiie strongest
language, the grievances of whioh
the users of tbe telephone in Nelson
complain,
The board then adouriied.
