Ninth Year
Mil MEET DEATH
IN KOOTENAY LAKE
Steamer Ainsworth Lost on
the Inland Waters.
SWAMPED IN A  GALE
PaaiengerB    and   Grew  Beoome
Stricken and Upset the
Life Boa's.
Panic-
V
\ disaster, nnparallelod in the annals of the navigation of tho inland
lakes of Kootenay, occurred abont 7.80
on Tuesday evening. The Steamer
Ainsworth left Nelson on Tuesday en
her trip to Bonner's Perry, reached
Pilot Bay in safety and there landed
some pas> ugers. On resuming her
voyage np to Bonner's Ferry she
.encountered a heavy sea, caused by a
strong southwesterly gale. The boat
had taken enough wood on board to
last for the round trip, and there
were eight cords piled up in her bows.
This caused her bows to sink deep in
the water, and the waves dashed over,
threatening to swamp the vessel.
When about opposite Rhinoceros Point,
:and two miles from the shore, Captain
Lane gave the order to jettison (lie
cord wood. This was done, and the
bowl, relieved of the weight, went up
and the water that had been Bhippod
rushed aft with the result that the
engineer became nnable to turn tie
wheel. The vess'-l gave a lurch to
port, another to slarboard, aud then
turned completely over ou her port
side.
In the meantime a scene of cenfu-
bion prevailed. A large portion of the
passengers were Italians, "ud these
added to the pandemonium by rushing
about screaming, swearing and light
ing in the extremity of their terror,
Directly the boat began to lurch, First
Officer Perrier, who had been wrecked
with the Ainsworth once before,
launched the small life boat aud gut
into it with four other men. When the
Ainsworth turned over, the boat cap-
sizod, and only one man, known as
Henry, succeeded in getting back to
the ship. The others were drowned.
LIFE BOAT   LAUNCHED.
After this disaster the life boat was
launched and five pasaeugors got into
it under the charge of Captain Lane
and Jack Donnelly, Captain W. J.
Kane, the engineer of the Ainsworth,
standing in the boat holding on to
the dogohains to keep the boat steady.
The boat was lying along side ihe
smokestack. Captain Lane called
out, "I want throe more men," and
immediately the Italian passengers
made a mad rush for the boat, upsetting it and throwing its occupants
into the water, with the result that
severalwere drowned.
A heavy sea was running, but th >se
ou the wreck managed to drag on
board all those within reaoh, aud to
right the boat, but then it was discovered that the oars had been lost.
Accordingly W. J. Kane aud another
broke up the pilot house door and a
small ladder, with which they managed to improvise paddlcB. Then after baling out the boat with their
hats, Captain Lane, Jaok Donnelly
and W. J. Kane paddled to the shore
which was two miles distant, and
notwithastauding the heavy surf managed to laud four passengers. On
lauding they wished to light a tire, as
every body was cold and wet, but to
their ooiisteruatiou there were only
two dry mutches in the party, the
first of which promptly went out. The
second was tenderly nursed, like a
new born babe, aud a fire was started.
The taree above mentioned then
went back to the shin, which was
drifting sborewards, aud brought
back seven passengers. They then
made a third trip, bringing back the
remaining eight, who were landed by
about midnight. At 3:80 a. m. W. J.
Kane aud another started for Pilot
Bay, distant about eight miles, to give
the alarm, arriving there about 4 :!10
a. m., With the result that the Steamer
Kaslo left at 6 :40 a. m., to piok up
the unfortunates. When she arrived
rather an amusing iuoident occurred
The superstitions Italians, who formed
the bulk of the pi.ss'ngers. nfused to
proceed fnrtln r on such nn unlucky
trip, preferring to wait i'ii the beach
for the Kokaiie'e, on which they subsequently returned to Nelson.
NINE   LIVES LOST.
There were nine drowned in all,
but it is impossible to give all the,
names, as the ship started out with
practically a new crew, of which thi re
is no list in Nelson. Among th se
lost, however, were John Gnrn, the
steward; Perrier. the first officer; the
cook; Jim McNeil, the fireman ; tliu
second engineer, a man named Harry,
whose surname could not be learned;
Joe Davis, a deck hand j Chas. Camp- J
bell, of Kuskonook, and two Italians.
The cook's name has uot transpired,
but he is known to be a white man.
i, McNeil oame  from  Nova   Scotia,
| where l.e bad a wife and family.
i Joe Davis formerly worked at the saw
null in Pilot Bay. Nothing is known
| of the two Italians, but the other
time victims resided in this city.
Nobody seems to have seen either J.
Guru or the cook at the time of the
disaster, but they were missing when
the roll call was gone ovor. None of
those saved rocoived any injury, except W. J. Kuno, whoso hand was severely cut by some one who was endeavoring to sover a rope.
The Aiuswurth was built at Ainsworth by Bremner & Watson in the
spring of 1891, and during that summer she aud the Nelson plied between
the head of Kootenay Lake and Kaslo.
The story is still told of how, on her
initial trip, Dave Bremner, one of the
owners, dived Into the lake for a wager from the top of the smokestack.
In the summer of 1894 she was sold
to Patterson & Campbell, who oper
ated her until about a year ago, when
she passed into the hands of Mr. Marshall, though the Braden Bros., of the
Pilot Bay smelter, are generally supposed to have been largely interested
in the purchase. Mr. Murshall acted
as purser, und was on the boat at the
time of the accident.
In the spring of 1897 she sank near
Kaslo wheu loaded with lime rock,
but no lives were lost. This timo she
drifted ashore about eight miles from
the scene of the accident, but is reported to be a total wreck.
Charles Campbell had been to Nelson
to purchase a stock of Groceries for S,
H. Hartmau's store at Kuskonook, of
which Mr. Campbell was manager.
Before going to Kuskonook deceased
resided at Rossland, whore he was interested in several building enterprises. He leaves a wife aud two
children, who were with him until a
week ago. when they left to pay a
visit to Mrs. Campbell's parents in
Oregon.

followed by hail and snow, blocked
traffic in the suburbs today and delayed it in the city. While the storm had
none of the severity of the blow and
snow of Saturday and Sunday, coming so soou ou the heels of that storm,
it increased the dicfflultios of the situation. Even the "L" lines suffored
today and many persons were obliged

Borough of Queens, there was a repetition of the annoyance and  discomfort
of Sunday,

STORM  STILL   RAGING
No One  Believe!  to  Have   Escaped in
the  Terrible   Catastrophe,
New York, Nov. BO,���Morton Bliss
& Company announce they have $1,-
000,000 gold coming from Europe on
the Steamship Majestic.
Proviucetown, Mass., Nov, 80.���Corrected reports from towns along Cape
Cod, us far south as Chatham, show
that 18 bodies from the wrecked
steamer Portland have been brought
ashore out of the surf by the life savers, or washed up on tbe beach. It is
apparent that the steamer went to
pieces after becoming unmanageable
in the storm somewhere off the end
of the cape near here between 9 and
10 o'clock Sunday morning. The life
savers at the Race Point station heard
tour whistles from a steamer which
they now suppose waB tho Portland.
Nothing was seen of any vessel in tbe
blinding storm and tho first indication that she bad been lost was found
in the discovery of wreckage which
began to come ashore early Monday
morning.
First the coast guard came ajross
a couple of. life preservers marked
"Portlaud," which had been east high
ou the shore by the force of the sea, and
soon after a fragment of the steamer
herself was found with the tonnage
mark of the vessel. A close watch was
kept all along the beach and soon tbe
guards reported at the station the discovery of wreckage of all kinds. 8tate
room doors, pieces of tbe vessels, a few
oars, aud barrels of pork and lard,
tebaooo and other pnrtii n; of tbe cargo
���ere washed up.
All along tho coast from Highland
Light to Monomy wreckage was cast
up. Near Orleans cottagers picked up
the wheel of the vessel. It was surrounded with several fathoms of wire
and tied with rope in sucb a way as
to indicate that the wheel had beeu
lashed. The vessel was steered by
elecricity and the wire attached to
tbo wheel was piobably that used in
connection with her steering gear.
The first body to come ashore was at
High Head, near Highland Light.
Another, that of a colored man, was
picked up at Well Fleet Monday morning, and during the forenoon the recovery of several bodies was reported
from Orleans. Another came in at
Easthani Monday and two more were
found there yesterday. But veiy little
wreckage and no bodies were found
north of Highland life saving station,
near Highland Light.
In the opinion of the coast guard
men, the vessel was swept down past
Race Point aud gradually went to
pieces, tbe hull probably foundering
somewhere between Highland Light
aud Well Fleet. Iu the wreokago
which has come ashore nothing whatever of the hull has been reported.
None of tbe small boats have come upon the beach, and none of the life rafts
have been located. It does not seem
possible that a single person has escaped lu the awful catastrophe. This
morning it was evident that the strong
south cm rant off the Cape was carrying
the wreckage and bodies as far down
ns Nantucket Sound, and it is believed
that if will be several days before a
considerable number of tho bodies will
bo recovered. This afternoon a terrific-
storm is raging with a high northeasterly gale aud it, seems probable that
tho bodies of many who went down in
tbe wraok will nevor be found.
LIST OF  THE PORTLAND.
E.'Thomus found the fragment tossing about in the waves. It contains
a letter as follows :
"We will be lost, thirteen of us, n

TERMS OF PEACE
ASHORE OFF CAPE RACE.
Puritan  Line Steamer Scottish   King
Roportod Wrecked.
Boston. Mass., Nov. -80.���Chamber
of Commerce, marine department,
has issued the following bulletin : A
private telegram received in this City
announces the probable loss of tho Pm'
itan line Steamer Scottish King, commanded by Captain James, and bound
from Antwerp, Belgium, to this port.
The vessel run ashore at 5:80 o'clock
this morning, 10 miles north east from
Cape Race, Newfoundland, during a
dense fog, The crew, numbering 85
men, were all landed in safety.
The Chamber of Commerce odvices
state that it was impossible for the
officers of the steamer to see their
dangerous surrouudings nnitl they
brought up on tho rocks, and that
when tbe steamer struck she began to
fill immediately, showing that her
bottom had been punctured by the
jagged rocks. The vessel wiil undoubtedly prove a total loss, as she is
in a dangerous position and is full
of water. The Scottish King is comparatively a new vessel, having been
built by Short Bros., at Sunderland,
England, iu IKilli. She was a steel propeller vessel of 2,148 tons net.    ���
CARGO MAY BE SAVED.
St. Johns, Nfld., Nov. 80.���The
steamer Scottish King which sailed
from Antwerp ou Nov. 21, for Boston
and Baltimore, with a general cargo,
went anhore during a dense fog this
morning at Seal Cove, a fishing hain-
left on Trinitv Bay. Tho crow was
saved. A telegram form Captain James
says tbat Ins ship is lying in an up-
light position between the rocks, that
there is a bad hole in the bottom and
that the fore compartment, and engine
and holier rooms are full of water.
The telegram says that a portion of
the cement aud glass on board msy be
saved if the weather continues favorable. The British steamer Reiiulus
has left there to render assistance to
tbe steamer.
HAD A BAD TIME.
Over 100 PersoiiB   Aboard the Wrecked
Steamer.
Proviucetown, Mass., Nov. 80,���O.
F. Williams, Boston, agent of the
Portland Steamship Co., places the total number of persons on the steamer
at 100 or possibly 10IJ. This estimate,
however, is generally regarded as
rather small. One feature of the disaster is the absence of any fragments
of a lifeboat or a life rafr among the
varied mass of wreckage from the Portland which has been washed ashore
during the list three days along the
leach.
0 d mariners say they cannot understand why the steamer which was
sighted til" ot !l o'clock Saturday night
just befer the gBle set ill, in its full
fucy. be- . e.i Thatcher island and the
Eastern point of Cape Ann, by
schooner Maude S., did not put into
Gloucester harbor when it was apparent that a violent northeaster was approaching. When the steamer was
sighted off Cape Ann, she was making   good   progress   toward  Portland.

curly a termination is not probable.
The foregoing list of subjects under
consideration does uot show the precise order in which the artioles were
laid before the Spanish commissioners
today and in fact only eight of the 18
were discussed. Four points arose
regarding which the Spaniards desire
to consult Madrid and two upon which
the Americans will consult Washington.
WHAT DINGLEY SAYS.
An   "Open Door" Polioy ij Not  Free
Trade.
Washington. D. C, Nov. 80.��� Chairman Dingley, of the Ways and
Meuus Committee of tbo House of
Representatives, in discussing the subject of an "open door" policy in the
Philippines, said:
"The phrase 'open door policy'
means simply equality of treatment,
and not tree trade. In tbe discussion
of the 'opeii door' lolicy I notice that
many papers assume that is the uniform policy of Great Britain in her
relations with her colonies. It
should be borne iu mind, however,
that there is u conspicuous exception
to this in tho case of Canada, her
most important colony, which admits
imports from Great Birtain at 25
per cent, less duty than thoy are admitted from the Uuited States and
other countries. It is understood that
this policy was adopted by Canada, if
not on the suggestion, at least with
tbe approval of Mr. Chamberlain,
British Secretary for the Colonies and
that he is urging other colonies of
Great Britain to give a similar preference to that coi.ii.i-y.
"It should tie borne iu mind that a
very .vital point as to revenue is involved iu the possible admission of
Porto Rico, Cuba and the Philippines into the Union as Territories or
States. These tropical islauds are
capable of producing every pound of
sugar and many other tropical products
that the United States consume. If
they should be admitted into the Union in such manner as to extend our
tariff over and thereby allow tho free
importation of their nroducts, we
should probably loso not less than $60,-
OOt.OOO of revenue anuully, which
woul be a very soriouB situation under
existiug conditions." NELSON DAILY MINER. THURSDAY,  DECEMBER i, 1898.

she uses? Further and apart from nil
these considerations, the mere fact
tbat Canadian gi.ld coins were circulating through the world would be tbe
best advertisement the mining industry of this country ever had. Every
man who handled a coin of Canadian
gold would be reminded of the mineral resources of the Dominion, and
many would inevitably be led to make
inquiries, who were ignorant up till
then of our mines and their resources.
Once it is decided to open a Canadian mint, there can be no question as
to where it should be located. The
mint should be reasonably near the
mines, or, in other words, in British
Columbia. The Question of what city
it should be located in can be settled
later. It is now the manifest duty of
the press of the Province to agitate for
a mint. The Government is understood to be by no means opposed to the
project, and, once it is evident that
the people are in earnest about it, the
obstacles in the way of tho fulfillment
of their wishes will soon disappear.

ANNOUNCEMENT,
Today Tho Miner passes to the control of a new management This will
not necessarily involve any radioal
change in tbe character of the paper,
which we are happy to believe has
generally commended itself to the favor of its readers. That character we
shall endeavor to maintain, and if
possible improve. There will be but
one principle to guide us, that of absolute fairness to all; one policy, to
serve the publio interest to the best of
our judgment. Bring human, and
therefore fallible, the new management
may not always succeed in its endeavor, but in the making of it there will
at least be the virtue of sincerity.
COMMUNICATIONS.
Editor Daily Miner:
Sir:���As the contractors who are
building the rink for hockey and skating have decided to build accommodation for curling would it not be advisable for those interested in this manly
game to call a meeting and organize a
club? Tbe contractors are going to considerable extra expense to make accommodation for curling and I think the
curlers should do all they can to make
the venture a success. I wonld suggest tbat a meeting be called to discuss
the matter; also in the meantime let us
find out all the information possible,
such as how many pairs of curling
stones are available from old players,
and who would be likely to join a
club and purchase new curling stones,
etc etc. The more information we
can have to work on at the meeting
the less time will be wasted in getting
organized. We will require at least
16 pairs of curling stones and it will
take some time to get them from the
East. This is only a suggestion on
my part, and I would like to hear from
some of the old curlers on the subject.

The Time
For
Selecting
A MINT FOR B. 0.
Tbe importance of the establishment
of a mint in this Province has frequently been urged upon tbe Federal
Government by the press of British
Columbia, irrespective of party leanings. The Provincial Government
has also endorsed a project whose urgency is daily increasing. The matter was brought up at Ottawa in 1897,
and the only opposition that arose was
from tho bankers, who feared tbat existing business arrangements would be
disturbed by the innovation, the stock
argument invariably baotrybWsaftrt
against those who would see any im
provemeuts made in present eondi
tions.
The arguments in favor of tbe es
tablishment of a Canadian mint are
irresistible. They have never been
answered, and increase in weight
every day. Canada is an immensely
rioh country, whose resources, apparent
and latent, are being rapidly and successfully developed. Her volume of
trade is large and growing, and a currency adequate to meet these demands
has to be fonhcoming. How is it
provided? Notwithstanding the fact
that this section of the Dominion, already a large producer, is rapidly com -
ing to the front as the premier gold
and silver bearing country in the
world, Canada has no coin of ber
own larger than a fifty-cent piece, and
those she has have to be bought in
England, while all the gold coin used
bears the American eagle.
Were the minting and refining of
preoions metals a losing business,
such a state of affairs would be understood ; but it is uot. On the contrary
these operations aro most profitable,
and this profit is lost to Canada, while
all the expenses incidental to the
shipping of tbe bullion to foreign
countries are but an unnecessary tax
upon the gold and silver industry.
It oannot be said now, whatever
may have been tbe case a few years
back, tbat Canada does not produce
enough gold to keep a mint constantly
and profitably at^ work. Aside from
the wealth daily produced in the
Kootenays, the Klondike and the
plaoer grounds of Northern British
Columbia are producing now, and for
years will continue to produoe, millions of dollars' worth of gold anuully.
All this gold now leaves the oountry
In its orude state, and the profit derived from turning it into money is
reaped by others; while our banks are
unable to offer the same terms as their
Amerioan competitors, with the result
that hundreds of miners who might
otherwise stop off at Victoria or Vancouver and spend or invest their
money go on to San Francisco, where
the merchants are growing rioh on
Canadian gold.
There is another reason whiob should
be sufficient in itself to insure the establishment of a mint without delay.
Every nation, however insignificant,
has a coinage and mint of its own,
and why should Canada, a nation in
���11 essentials and an important one at
that, be singular in this respect? India and Australia, the other two great
dependencies of the Crown, have eaob
a mint, and is it fitting that Canada,
the premier colony, should be dependent on a foreign nation  for   tbe ooins

MB fl. P. HILL'S  LUCK
Praotioo  of   Distributing Oar Lots
Freight to be Discontinued.
of
P. W. Peters, district freight agent
of the 0. P. B., returned on Tuesday
evening from Winnipeg and St. Paul,
Whither be had gone to confer with
Traffic Manager Kerr ou the freight
rates to be charged over the now
Crow's Host route. Ho yesterday informed a Minor representative tbat tbe
following rates hud beeu decided upon
from Shorbrooke, Quebec, westward,
covering all Ontario points, to Nelson
and common points: First class rates,
ti per hundred ; second class, $!i. i>n ;
tbiril,*a.lil); fourth, $2.40; fifth, fl.UO;
Sixth, fl.tSO; Beventh. $1.(10; eightb,
11,46; and tenth, $1.20. This is a reduction of from five cents to 19 cents
per 100. Commodity rates bave been
correspondingly reduced.
The merchants of Nelson will also
be pleased to hear that at, the request
of the South Kootenay Board of Trade
and many of the leading business men
of the district, the C. P. B. has decided to discontinue the practice,
whioh has prevailed for the past two
years, of distributing car load lots of
freight. The local tariffs have not
yet been decided upon.
Mr. Peters also said that he had
completed arrangements for the proposed C. P. K. excursion to Pernio
and though the exact date is uot yet
settled, it will probaby start ou the 7th
instant. The City Councils and Boards
of Trade of the various towns have
unanimously accepted the invitation,
and a large and representative body
of business men is expected.
The excursion will start about 8 a.
m. on the Steamer Moyie, connecting
at Pilot Bay with a steamer which
will bring the Kaslo aud Ainsworth
oontingeuts. At Kootenay Lauding a
special tarin with comfortably fitted
up sleeping cars will be in waiting,
and porters will be iu attendance on
each car. The first night will be spent
at Craubrook, whence the party will
leave, after breakfast, for Forme. At
Fernie, Mr. Blakouiore, manager of
the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company,
will entertain the visitors to lunch,
subsequently sbowiug them the mines
. and the coke ovens. The party will
return to Craubrook the same night,
. and next morning, after breakfast,
will proceed to Moyie, where they
will bo shown the mines in the viciu-
: ity. After seeiug the mines, the party
will return to Nelsou, iu time for the
Kaslo people to get home that evening, and for the Rosslanders to catch
i the 6:40 train, should they be so
i minded.
Mr. 0. P. Hill. United States customs officer at Port Hill, Idaho, returned to Nelson yesterday ou the
steamer Kokanec. Mr. Hill considers
himself in great luck this year and
the latest evidence of it is as follows :
On Tuesday morning while dressing
himself at the Hume hotel he came
across an opal pin which he had not
worn for 15 years. Although an opal
is considered a very unlucky stone,
Mr. Hill is of a contrary opinion
aud placed tho pin in his scurf. He
intended to return home on the
steamer Ainsworth but on bis arrival
at Pilot Hay found that he bad some
business to transact there, and decided
to remain ovor until tbe next boat.
He is confident that had ho continued
his journey bo would undoubtedly
Lave been drowned. He attributes bis
escape to the opal pin which he acci-
dontly placed in his necktie.
FROM   BOUNDARY DISTRICT.
Mr. P. J. RusBell returned this
week from a business trip through
the Boundary country. To a Miuer
reporter Mr. Russell reported business very brisk in Grand Forks, Cascade aud Greenwood, owing to the
large number of men employed on the
Robson-Peuticton Railway construction. A large amount of development
work is being carried on in the mines
of the Christina Lake district, and
shipments will be made as soou as tbe
railway is completed. At the present
time thero are over 600 teams engaged
in freighting goods from MarcuB and
Bossburg into the Boundary country.
QUALIFIES HIS CONSENT.
O^ilvie   Allows    Rebuilding   on  the
Water Front at Dawson.
Commissioner Ogilviehas, according
to Dawson newspapers, given permission to lessees of property ou the
water front strip at Dawson to rebuild
structures destroyed by the recent Are.
The commissioner qualifies the permission by stating that it is purely an
accommodation and that it is given
with the distinct understanding that
tho government will resume control of
Ihe water front nponj the expiration
"f the McDonald lease next spring,
when all tenants will be ordered to
vacate.
The qualified authority given to intending buiders on the water front
will, it is considered, operate to limit
the number and the cost of the structures rebuilt in this portion of the
burned dinstriot

MINING NOTES.
"Work Done on the Last Chauce���Strike
on the Exchequer.
The Lust Chance mine, siutated on
'the southwestern slope of Toad Mountain, and operated by the Nelson Copper Fields Company, has been steadily
worked all the summer aud fall. Operations started in April and some 120
feet of sinking aud 000 feet of rounding have been done. The main work
consists of a shaft sunk ou the vein
to a depth of 85 feet, where it is joined
liy a 120-foot tunuel. A second tunnel is boiug driven 60 feet below,
which is now in about 150 feet, and it
is expected that the ledge will be
encountered after running another
100 feet. Drifts will be run east and
west where the tunnels join the shaft,
and the drifts will be conneoted by
winzes.
The property does not carry a vein
proper, but there is a body of rock
about six feet wide thoroughly impregnated with copper, contained in a
fracture of the surrounding rock. The
walls are well defined, and tbe lust
average assay of the ore body gave
seven per cent copper, with small gold
and silver values. Work will be continued on the property   all tho winter.
The Exchequer mine on Morning
Mountain is showing up well under
development, and there 1b now two and
oue-half feet of ore at tho bottom of
the shaft. An average assay recently
taken ucross the whole width of the
vein gave returns of $88.92 in gold.
The management is putting ou another shift of men, who will lay a
track for Ihe ore cars which it is intended to use on tho property.

Always believed in printer's ink as a

they are now more than ever convinced of ita value. Early lust week
they receivtd a consignment of 100
pairs of rubber "creepers," They advertised them in The Minor to be sold
at 60 cents per pair. Un the evening of the first day tho advertisement
appeared every creeper in their storo
was sold. In addition to this there
was a great demand for more, and in
consequence another case of creepers
is now on its way to Nelsou. The advertisement in The Miner did it, aud
therefore advertising pays.

TIRED   OP  SERVICE.
Uncle   Sam's   Volunteers   Want to go
Home.
Washington, Nov. 30.��� It Congress
early iu tbe session should make
provision for the increase of the regular army, it is quite probable that
none of the volunteer regiments now
in the service will bo sent to do garrison dnty in Cuba. The troops first to
be sent to Cuba will be composed
largely of regular regiments as far as
they are available. Plans are maturing for the muster out of so many volunteers now in the service as is possible. Tbe demand of the enlisted men
to go borne and leave service is growing greater every day. This is true in
nearly every garrison and the arrival
of Senators aud Representatives with
requests fur tho muster out of regi-
meuts or men in the regiments has
largely increased during the past three
days. It is well known that the volunteers at Manila desire to come home
and the war department is considering the question of sending regular
regiments to replace these volunteers
as soon as arrangements can be made.
The regulars who are available for
this service comprise those regiments
on the western coasts which saw ser
vice at Santiago and there ia a disposition to have them recuperated and
recruited to "their full strength before
sending them at Manila.
BOND TAKEN UP.
The Final  Payment   Made  Yesterday
on the Molly  Gibson   Mine.
A most important mining deal was
consummated yesterday when the
Hon. F. Peters, Q. 0., member of the
legal firm of Tupper, Peters & Potts,
and president of the Molly Gibson
Mining Company, handed over tbe
final payment of $40,000 on the Molly
Gibson bond to the owners of the
property. The total price paid is
$110,000.
R. W. George, tbe original locator
of the property, received $17,000 as
his share of the last payment. Mr..
George, on receiving the money, immediately went to J. W. Askew and
insured his life for $10,000. This is
the first policy written by Mr. Askew
since his acceptance of the agency
the other day.
ELEVATOR PROPERTY SOLD.
Winnipeg, Nov. 80.���The Manitoba
Grain Company has sold ont its business and elevators to the Northern
