Prevailing on the Island at
Present.
New York, Dec. 23 ��� Referring to
the situation in Havana, Admiral
Sampson, who has just returned to tho
United States from Cuba, said that the
perfecting of tbo custom house service
and tne official police in the Island

connection with Cuba. When General
Green aud Chief MoCullough had established their police force Admiral
Sampson thought there would bo little
disorder.
"Do yon think tbe people of Cuba
will prove amiable to tbe American
Government."
"It does not make any difference
whether they do or not," the admiral
replied. "We are down there and our
Government will go on us long as it
is necessary."
Reverting to tho question of the future of Cuba, Admiral   Sampson said :
"Tbe wealthiest aud most influential people in Cuba want the island
unuexted to tbe United States,whether
as a state or terirtory, thoy do not
much care, but thero are many Cubans
who think they aro able to govern
themselves. Cuba ..t> 4. .'es*. ..t"certainly
is in no condition to govern itself.
Tho question of wbat shall become nf
Cuba will not be sottl'd for a year
at least and possibly for two or three.
In the meanwhile military Government by the United States will go on.

ELECTION   PETITIONS.
Sevonty Three of Them Havo  Finally
Beon   Disposed of.
Toronto. Dec. 2!!.���Judges Oslor
and McLennan this morning formally
dismissed the election petitions iu tbe
cases of North Gray, where Boyd Cou-
sorvatve, respondent and Ottawa
where Lumsden, Liberal nud Bowel],
Conservative, respectively are respondents. No evidence was offered and
none asked for. The Ottawa cases
had been previously dismissed but
through some technical omissou the
poraeilure was irregular. This practically closes out 78 protests filed after
the general election in March lust,
there remaining only tho decision of
the judges in the case of East Elgin.
In South Perth, however, nud in North
Waterloo anneals hnve been tnken aud
thero may be several additional protests arising out of bye elections.

ONE BARREN ISLE
IT IS BADLY NEEDtD BY THE UNITED STATES.
Is Situated in the Pacific and  Will
Used for  a  Cable
Station.
Washington, Dec. 23.���Tbo Government has determined to hoist the
United States flag over another island
far out in tbo Pacific Ocean, and
orders were sent out Into tbis aftein-
noon to the Commander of tho Bennington, Capt. Tusslg, to proceed at
once to take possession in tbo name
of tho Government of United States
of Wake Island, lying in latitude 19
north longitude, 188 east. It is distant about 2.000 miles from Nihua,
the westernmost point of tbe Hawaiian Islands, and 1 1100 miles from
Guam. It is almost ill a direct line
between these possessions of tbe
United States and is admirably adapted for use as a station for a Pacific
cable to connect tbo Philippines witb
Hawaii anil the United states. It is
about three miles in length and encloses a lagoon of salt water. The
average heiglit of land is eight feet
above high tide. It is scarcely capable of sustaining life but it is expected that a cable station can be
maintained without difficulty by the
erection of a condenser to supply
fresb water.

London Pspers Urge Lord Salisbury Not
to Give Everything for
Mothing.
London, Dec. 24.���The question of
the Clayton-Bulwer treaty is freely
isoossed in the morning papers. The
Daily News and Daily Chronicle published editorials asserting thut Lord
Salisbury "ought to get some concession in return for consenting to abrogation." The Daily Chronicle poiuts
out that the Nicaragnan cannl would
make the United States a great naval
power in the far East, increase America's strength in the Atluutic aud alter, to England's disadvantage, tbe
carrying of trade to the far East.
AT   WASHINGTON.
Washiugbton, Dec. 28.���The State
Department originally did uot coutem
plate a formal opening of negotiations
to secure the desired amendment of
tho Clayton-Bulwer treaty until Congress should have made some progress,
at least, towards the enactment of tho
Nicaraguan canal bill, the department
wishiug not to be placed in the falso
position of negotiaitng for an object
which Congress might, hoforo its conclusion, deem to be undesirable. After
the experience it bad with the General Arbitration treaty there is a particularly strong disinclination to be
again placed in this attitude.
However, now that the matter has
been brought iuto such prominence,
the negotiations may bo opened at an
earlier date, than was originally con
tomplaterl. though it may be taken for
granted that their initiation will be
au evidence of the Presidents' convictions tbat Congress will passs some
acceptable canal bill before ndjouruing.

cully of the university and the judges.
Lord Strathcona referred to tbe fact
that McGill was not nidod by Ihe

eulogistic terms to tbe gift of Mr. W.
0. McDonald. He then presented the
Governor-General with a congratulatory address from the University.

The Time
For
Selecting
The columns of The Daily Miner
bear evidence every morning that it is
receiving a fairly liberal advertising
patrouage, proof that the business men
of Nelson are alive to the opportunity
it offers to bring them to the notice of
the publio. Our subscription list bears
evidence that the paper has a fairly
liberal circulation. Yet we have no
donbt there are many who regard it
with aBort of contempt, because of its
���lie. They think that a four-page,
six-column paper is too small to deserve their support. A word or two
to these latter may be appropriately
���aid just now, to the advantage of
both sides.
We desire the citizens of Nelson and
Miner readers generally to understand
tbat we publish daily as mnah of the
news of the world as any newspaper in
British Columbia. Precisely the same
lelegraphio service supplied to the
leading morning dailies of Vancouver
���nd Victoria is supplied to tbe Nelson
Daily Miner. Of what is transpiring
in the world beyond, therefore, readers
in Nelson have the same opportunity
to be informed as those of the Ooast
cities. Local events of interest and
importance are daily chronicled, nothing of consequence being omitted.
News of tbe surrounding distriots and
tbe Prevince generally is given as fully
as present means will admit. This
service we shall improve as fast and as
amply as tbe patronage extended to
Tbe Miner will justify.
Tbat is one way of putting it. An.
other is to say tbat no town of the
sice of Nelson anywhere in tbe Dominion of Canada publishes a Daily paper
In .the .least comparable with Tbe
Miner. No other similar town, outside of Nelson and Rossland, would
dream of expending the amount of
money for telegraphic news tbat is
spent here for the benefit of Nelson
readers The Miner, it is not too
much to say, is a long way abend of
the town. Judges of newspapers would
testify tbat it boars a character of all
found excellence, remarkably so con
tidering the field.
No doubt there are many who never
thought of it'in this light. We wish
them to tbink oi it, not only in justice
to The Miner, but for the credit of
the town itself. It can be made^bettor,
���nd the intention is to make it better;
hut this cannot be done without the
���o-operation of tho citizens of Nelson
���nd surrounding districts. The Miner
is already deserving the favorable con
���ideration of every person who has a
���take in this section of the country,
and iff supported us it deserves we
promise tbat it sliull grow in tbe pub
lie confidence und respect.
The indiffereuce displayed by ratepayers to civio affairs in Nelsou is
most remarkable. We are within a
fortnight of the election of the next
Council, and not a word is heard as to
who will or may or ought to be ths
candidates. This is not a healthy condition of affairs. Continued long
enough, and our civic government
would fall into the hands of designing
men to exploit for their own purposes.
It is understood that one or more of
the present Council will not offer for
re-election. Would it not be well if
the citizens were to assemble in public
in eting, discuss the situation, and
bring out candidates where or as required? Perhaps His Worship the
Mayor would take the lead, if it were
suggested to him. Let ub at least
show that the city is not without some
public spirit.
THE   CITY   LIUHTING.
Members of the City Council are
quite right in supposing that the
���leotric light service needs mending.
The entire community will go with
them tbat far, especially those householders who have beou cut off from it
entirely, and also those other house
holders wbo for long weeks have been
obliged to  grope around in a sort of
twilight at certain hours every uight. Tlie Swells all do it-buy their oi
It certainly needs mending; but tbe gars nt Nelson Cigur Co's Storo and

A year ago tlie prospect was supposed to be bright for an all-British
cable line to Australia, beginning iu
Cornwall aud touching at Gibraltar,
Sierra Leono, St. Helena, Ascension.
Capo Town, Durban, the Mauritius,
Rodriguez, and Cocos, reaching Aus
tralia ut Perth. Today there is little
or no prospect, and the St. James's
Gazette complains that it is duo to the
apathy of the Australian Colonies. It
is the same apathy that has left the
Canadian scheme of a Pacific cable on
tbe rocks. Australia is too much engaged in playing cricket to think of
such paltry matters as better cable
communication with the heart of the
Empire.
The Great Eastern did not prove a
success, and failure was attributed to
her size, 079 feet long, with beam in
proportion. She was too unwieldy,
and in a few years was relegated to
the show list of curiosities. Next
month an Atlantio liner, the Oceanic,
25 feet longer than the Great Eastern, will be launched from a Belfast
yard, and will do regular passenger
service at a speed of 31 knots an hour.
We build little biggor than was the
Great Eastern, but in the years that
have intervened we bave gained the
knowledge to handle large craft which
was lacking in tbe old days. The
world do move, even in the making
of big ships.
EDITORIAL    COMMENT.
(St. John, N. B., Sun.)
It is not many years since William
Black was almost the favorite novelist
of the tine. This was before the advent of Stevenson, Barrie und Crockett, while Kipliug was a lad, nud Mrs.
Ward and the mad modem women of
fiction hud not appeared. There cume
n time when Scotch mists and Scotch
coast lines, seafaring gentry from tho
Islands of the North, and tho simple
hut noble lass of tho Caledonian shores,
btgnu to pall upon nn ovortnxed generation. But even yet tho Princess of
Thulo remains one of the most charming creations of modern fiction. Tho
memory of this Princess transplanted
from her nativo soil, and of many nn-
otner sweet hooine, will cling to those
who at one time followed Black
through his devious journeys and
among his extraordinary cloud effects.
William Black has passed away, leaving a library of books, whereot the
first two or three which a new-comer
takes up will furnish wholesome enjoyment.

4 NELSON DAILY MINER, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1898.
IMPORTANT   SUIT
ARGUMENTS IN THE hRIGHT PROSPECTS MINING OASE.
An Outline of the Toints r.niseil by 0. un
nel on Interesting Legal
Questions,
Tho whole time of the court yesterday was occupied with the argument
of counsel iu the Bright Prospects,
aud, us the case' is of peculiar interest
to all miners au outline ol the arguments used should be of interest. It
will he rememhered that this case
arises out of the defalcation of a contractor who drew all his money and
went off without paying his men.
Tho minors aro now endeavoring to
recover the wages due them under the
Mechanic's Lion Act.
Mr. 8. S. Taylor, counsel for the
Bright Prospects Mining Company,
argued that in suing under tho Mechanics Lieu Act the laborers were
claiming extraordinary statutory remedies, aud that accordingly the act
should bo strictly construed against
them, and cited several cases in support of his contention. He then raised
several objections to the affidavit filed
in   support of (he plaintiff's claim :
(I) The Act prescribed tliat an oath
should be taken, and tbat consequently
an affidavit sworn before a commis-
iouer was not sufficient.
(3) Tho time that the work was finished or discontinued was not definitely stated in the affidavit,
(3) The kiud of work done was not
specified.
(4) The interest or Pstafe|*of the
owner iu the property was not   stated.
Mr. Taylor then went to tho root of
the matter, and proceeded to argue
that the mechanics' Lien Act does not
apply to miners or to mineral claims
for several reasons:
(1) The description given in Section
2, Subsection o, of the Act of those
entitled to reliof doso not apply lo
minors.
(2) No lien can be filed under tho
Aot iu respect of such work as was
alleged to be done, as thu Act speaks of
work done "upon the property,"- and
that therefore underground mining
was out of tho question.
(8) An uncrown granted mineral
claim is not subject to �� lien under
this Act, which speaks of "land,
promises or interest therein, "
Iu reply Mr. W. A. Macdonald Q.
C., argued thnt if the Act is to be
strictly constmed against the workmen, it must also be strictly construed
against tbo company He then replied
to Mr. Taylor's objections senatim :
(1) No affidavits can be taken without au oath and Section Iii of tbe
Oath's Act providos tbat a Commissioner can fake any affidavit required
by any statute.
(2) Tho schedule referred to in Section 8 of (ho Aot has been strictly followed which provides (bat the time
"on or about" when tlie work was finished should be stated.
(3) Tho a lidavit clearly shows the
kind of work done.
(4) Section 8 calls for a description
of the property only, and not of the
estate or property of the owners there.
in.
Mr. Macdonald then went ou to say
that Section I) of tbe Act required a
statement of tho work to he done to be
filed in tbe Government Agent's office
in the case of contracts over $500, but
that "when no such certiflcato is filed,
no affidavit shall be adjudged to bo insufficient if it describes tho owners,
contractor, if any, and works of or improvements so as to leave no doubt ripen the mind of tho Court or judge as
to who or what are intended to be de-
loribed," and that therefore no objections could be raised to the affidavit.
In reply to Mr. Taylor's objection as
to the application of tho act Mr. Macdonald argued:
(1) That those outitlod to benefits
tinder tho act are "mechunics, artisans, builders or othor persons" which
by the luws of interpretation of statutes should apply to miners.
(2) That Section 4 of the Act speaks
of "work dono upon or in connection therewith."
(8) He thon cited decisions to show
than a mineral claim was an interest
in land.
He also quoted Section 43 of the
Mineral Act which says that a "crown
grant will not prejudice any lien
whioh may havo attached to any mineral claim previous to the issue of
the crowu grant.
THAT BANQUET AT
FORT STEELE.

jollier, cannot bo equalled. ,1.  T. Har
voy, with bis soiiorioiia voice and dignified mien, as chairman, spoke   oftou
and   spoke   well,   and each   time   tbo
fame of Fort Steele   grew   greater and
the town larger until it appeared like
a cheese iu its   wire   case���the   whole
thing    There    were    two    eloquent
speeches   lhat embodied the need feel
ing lhat existed between   the towns of
I South   Bast   Kootenay ;  speeches that
were thrilling  as well as  interesting,
| filled wilh brotherly love  and   neigh.
borly kindness, but they   were not delivered  for tlm reason that   either  .1.
j \V.    H.    Smythe or Judge   Hutchison,
w;ho represented Oranbrook ai ihe banquet, were called uptin.
J     Both at Fernie   and   Fort Steel   tho
I visitors  were load   In their praise  of
East Kootenay anil the people of Cranbrook,   anil   when    lliey   returned   to
Cranbrook   they   bad   many words   of
praiso   for the treatment   they had re-
ceived at Fort Steele.    But one remark
that   caused   The Herald man   to   feel
good that he   lived   ill Cranbrook was
made by a Nolson man.    Speaking   of
the  trip,   ho  said:   "I noticed tit the
Oranbrook banquet your people bad little to say of  Oranbrook,    In fact, you
scarcoly mentioned it.    Yon all talked
of East Kootenay as   a   whole, and   at
no time held up  Cranbrook as tbe best
town.    That   speaks   well    for    your
town and your peoplo.    You   left ns to
judge for ourselves,   and   the   visitors
noticed this.    Oranbrook   made a host
of friends by tho manner in which Ihe
people    entertained    their  visitors."
That expresses (bo spirit of Oranbrook,
There is nothing small about tbe town
or her people.  Thoy aro for East Kootenay   ns  a   whole," and   nre   perfectly
willing to take   their  chances   in   the
growth of this valley   without  saying
anything   that   would  tend to  injure
any other (own in (lie same section.

"Slooan Oity and Silverton are going to be two of the brightest little
towns in the Kootenays next summer"
said a Nolson man yesterday, after returning from a tiip to tbe two points
mentioned. "Silverton is bound to go
ahead. Six or seven properties are
snipping ore from thire, among them
Wakefield, Emily Edith, Oomstock,
Vancouver, Bosun, ana one or two
others. The feeling there is very hopeful and if a boom does not come alone;,
but instead of it, good healthy growth,
the outlook is indeed very hopeful for
Silverton being oue of the best
points on Slocan Lake. At preseut
there are about 200 men employed in
the mines at Four Mile Oroek, tributary to Silverton. Gold has been discovered at Eight Mile cre?k, which is
also tributary to Silverton. The gold
properties will be worked at once.
Next spring aud Rummer should be
very aotive. I found the feeling much
more hopeful than it was 12 or 18
months ago. There is also a much
more buoyant feeling in Slocan City
on account of the strike in the Two
Friends mine. Twelve inches of good
galena ore in now in Bight and there is
altogether 80 inches of ore, more or less
rich, iu sight. It is expected that the
Two Frioudi lead will run through
the Bank of England claim which was
leased by K. Marpolo to Teeter and
York. There is a probability of the
option on the Tamurac being taken up.
The Tamarao is on Springer Greek
and will be worked by the purchasers.
Tho Arlington hus put through Borne
deal and will start up again. Tho
Evening Star is looking well. With all
these properties working Slocan City
should thrive next spring and summer,
Great things are lining lookod forward to by the whole Slocan district. "
* *   *
Hon. C. H. Mackintosh, managing
director of tho British ^America Oor-
poration, when asked for confirmation of the report that the corporation
is about to take over the Novelty claim
in Kosslunil, said there wns not one
word of truth in tho report. "We do
not expect to acquire any of it. Tho
report is without foundation," he said.
��   *   ���
Mr. Stuart Cuml erlaud, in his
Journal the London Empire, says:
The isBtio of tho Le Koi mine has been
a gigantic success. Brought out at
what most people thought tho wrong
time, its success lias exceeded the most
sanguine expectations. Tho list closed
today with, I understand, oloRe upon
��� wo and a-half million subscriptions.
Tho shareholders in the Globe and
British America Corporations wore, as
everyone knows, entitled to a preferential allotment, and of tbis preferential
allotment, very fow shareholders
omitted to take advantage. It will
thus be seen that very fow shares cun
bo alloted to the general publio, and
that application monoy. close upon one
million and a-half. will have to be returned with the customary expressions
of regret. It must be gratifying to the
issuing Corporations to know that tho
issue has gone off so satisfactorily, and
that their shareholders, in spite of
the depteoiated market value of tbeir
shares, have such complete confidence
in them.
#   *   *
Referring to the rich strike made in
tho Mikado mine, in the Seine River
district, Western Ontario, a correspondent to the Freo Press, Winnipeg
says:
Tho wonderful reports which
oame in a few days  ago  that the Mi
kado mine had developed itself in o
something more than the ordinary in
iho way of producing free gold, bus
proved lo bo correct in every detail.
Tbis streak of enormously rich paying
oro was opened in tho No. 8. shaft
while drifting 185 feet below the. surface. The stopo is 40 feet in height,
and this rich stuff is tho whole length
of tho stope. I am very glad to be
able to state that this purticluar ore
will not all go through the mill, but
be sent to Loudon, England, in sacks.
to show what the nature of it really
is in its credo state. This oro can
without doubt be classed among ihe
richest gold bearing quartz that bus
ever been found on tho face of the
earth. It is really a wonder. (In
Thursday it was estimated that tbo
manager hml caused to bo put in sacks
for shipment to London free gold lo
tne amount of $36,000, Tho miners
us thoy come up out of the shaft are
not nliowd to leave tho shaft house before ohanglng all their clothes. There
is a guard of three men watching the
mining of tho oro all the time. The
most remarkable part of it is that it
continues to show up as good as ever.
How long it will last goodness only
knows.
# *   *
The Now Denver Lodge throws further light upon the matter of the sale
of the Enterprise group, referred to
recently bv Tho Miner.    It says;
An option to purchase was given
some timo ngo by the owners of the
Enterprise group, on Ton Mile, to a
British syndicate, and the time expires
early next month. The interested
parties will say nothing nbont it. and
no particulars will be given out till the
time expires. In. any ovent, whether
the mine sells or not.it will be worked
much more extensively aud shipments
resumed and maintained. The mine
can easily ship 50 toiiB per day, and
tha ore in high grade, though tlie presence of zinc may act as a deterrent to
some extent W. O. E. Koch has had
a team employed for over a week- hauling ore down from tho mine to Enterprise, more for the purpose of keeping the road open for future events.
Two companies appear to be figuring
ou the property, tho Londou & B. C.
Goldfields and the British America
Corporation. Both are standing high
on the British market just now, the
former because of such gilt-edged possessions as the Ymir, Whitewater and
So au Boy, backed up by a recent dividend of 20 per cent., and the B. A.
O. becanes of its snccessfiul flotation
of the Le Roi. Ten Mile creek would
boom in the event of a sale.
# #   #
For the half year ending December
81, the total Slocan shipments will
total fully 18,000 tons, valued at about
$2, COO, 000.

Major Furlong of Now Denver, received a cablegram on Monday, announcing that his Black Grouse' property, on north folk of Carpenter Creek,
bad been accepted iu England by a
syndicate of capitalists. Particulars
of salo and tho future developments of
the property will be  received later on.

W. Boies and .J Rackliff have bonded n group of four claims, owned by
them on South Kaslo, to the English
company represented bv E. Mansfield,
The bond culls for $80,000, the first
payment ot which is to bo made so
soon as the snow goes off. These
claims adjoin tho Joker group now being worked by Mr. Mansfield, and
have practically the same surface showings, the the croppiugs running well
in gold.
