Ottawa, Oct. 14.—In the house, Lem-
leux read from a Montreal newspaper
cable, stating that Fielding was in favor
of Chamberlain's preferential trade
policy. The newspaper correspondent
of an English paper said that Mr.
Fielding stated to him that although the
government had made no declaration
on the subject, they were ready to go
to the country and carry on Mr.
Chamberlains' policy providing that no
rider was attached making a contribution to Imperial defence requisite. He
asked if the government had anything
to say to this.
Mr. Fielding said: "I am glad to he
able to say that I gave no Interview on
the subject, and I never used the words
as attributed to me in conversation with
any one."
On the item of 1140,000 for tho Alaska
boundary commission, Mr. Fowler said
that he was satisfied that the case was
well prepared, but he regreted that one
of the commissioners had so far forgotten himself to make statements attributed to hiin, that is, if he did make
them.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier replied thnt the
misfortune was that these statements
were circulated In the press, as there
was nothing to show that Mr. Aylesworth had made use of the expressions.
Only yesterday lord Alverstone had
denied what was said about him ln the
eame way.
Mr. Borden said that the difference
was that lord Alverstone had done so,
while Aylesworth had not.
In answer to some further remarks,
sir Wilfrid Laurier said that lord Alverstone had denied the statement, but no
one thought he had ever said it. ln
lord Alverstone's case there were persistent rumors ln the American press
that the chief justice was going to go
against us, and therefore he took tbe
trouble to deny the statement.
Gourlay said the Canadian press service In London was beneath contonipt.
Ottawa, Oct 14.—ln the house this
morning, hon. Mr. Paterson, in reply
to Henderson, of Halton, gave the dutiable imports for 1803 as $13li,79li,0li7,
free, as {90,91)4,451; duty collected as
{37,110,354. The imports under the Preferential tariff wero {37,614,605, and the
duty collected {7,069,092.
Replying to Heyd, of Brant, hon. Mr.
Fielding said that the total railway subsidies for the past ten years were $27,-
040,646 granted and {15,203,503 paid.
In reply to Mr. Clark, Toronto, Mr.
Fielding said that the revenue from
customs and excise for 1896 was {20,219,-
037, and in 1903, {37,109,678.
Mr. Fielding denied that he had given
an interview to the correspondent of
the London Morning Post to the effect
that a minister, who might become a
premier of Canada (meaning the minister of finance) had given a statement
favoring Chamberlains' policy, nnd that
he would be prepared to go to the country on It, but not with the rider attached committing Canada to the scheme
of contribution for Imperial defence.
Sir William Muloek said tbat the
civil service act was not intended to
cover all the employees of the government. The act was read a third time
today.
The premier agreed to a suggestion of
Mr. Borden to mako the resolution for a
fast Atlantic line of steamers the flrst
order for Saturday.
The committee In supply heard a
severe criticism of the Canadian new
Associated Press for cabling a statement attributed to A. B. Aylesworth,
K. C, on the Alaskan boundary commission, to the effect that tbe Canadian'
commissioners would never consent to
one Inch of Canadian territory iu
Alaska going to America for diplomatic
reasons.
the good effect that French and Italian
friendship would have on the nations
and European powers generally.
At the end of the banquet president
Loubet arose, and, addressing king Victor Emmanuel, said: "It Ib assured
that the two countries henceforth can
pursue their national tasks with confidence and goodwill," He proposed the
health of the' king,.
King Victor Emmanuel in reply, said;
"France rightly considers my presence
in Paris the natural result of the work
of re-approachment happily accomplished between the two countries.
Italy's interests make her ardently
desire the consecration of peace. Her
position in Europe enables her to contribute by her attitude to the realization of this eminently civilizing effect
towards which my highest and warmest
aspirations and the constant efforts of
my government are directed."
JAPAN 18 READY FOR WAR
NEWSPAPER   CORRESPONDENT
FROM THE ORIENT.
RUSSIA'S ARMY IS GREATLY OVERESTIMATED.
Victoria, Oct. 14.—Among the passengers who arrived on the steamer Indra-
samha, which reached port today from
Yokohama, was M. Wakimoto, a Japanese newspaper correspondent. In an
interview, he said tbe Japanese people
were greatly excited over the situation
and the general impression was that war
could not be avoided.
He said that influential Japanese
realize that Japan must inevitably fight
Russia, and now is the best time, With
delay, Russia would increase her forces
and Japan's chances of victory would
grow less. Now, the Japanese, as a
nation, believe they will beat Russia,
and the soldiers despise the Russians.
The newspapers quote officers as stating that Russia's army is greatly overestimated, and telling of what a poor
showing Russia made in tho Boxer
campaign.
M. Wakimoto believes war cannot be
averted. He says the Japanese are
ready, transports have been secured,
and the army divisions have all been
mobilized and the reserves notified to
be ready, Oreat amounts of supplies
have been stored, and the commissariat
officers have arranged for transportation. For many months past Japan has
been importing great quantities of rice
and other foodstuffs from America,
nominally- consigned to mercantile
houses.
He says that when he left Seoul,
whence he came via Yokohama, Japan
had already sent in 2000 or more un-
uniformed soldiers as emigrants, sending them in the regular steamers via
Fusan and Chemulpo. Others were following, and when war Is declared, for
he believes such will be the case, Japan
will have many troops already in Korea
to join those landed by the transports.
NEW YORK'S SALVATION  COMING
any Importance on hand. Under these
conditions an advance waB inevitable.
It also appears that the situation haB
been aggravated by the closing down of
the Denver smelters. According to a
•recent New York market letter, the
scarcity of lead has created almost a
panic among consumers. Small buyers
have heen forced to pay as high as
14.60, and there is no immediate likelihood of relief. In the face of a rising
market and great scarcity is it difficult
to understand why the settling price
to the miner should remain at such a
low figure. In March of this year the
New York price was $4.35, and the smelters paid |3.90. After this it fell to
,93.75 on a New York fall to $4.25. In
June there was a reduction to $4.10 in
New York, and lead fell here to $3.50.
With a restoration of price in New
York there Is every reason to anticipate a local advance. Of course, there
may be hidden reasons why the American Smelting Co, does not desire to
stimulate western production by permitting the miner to share in the advance. It is evident that at present,
with two smelters in Denver practically
closed, an additional amount of ore
would simply be an embarrassment,
and consequently the policy ls to keep
stocks as low as possible. It is significant that the American Smelting Co.,
while controlling the lead market, has
as yet not acquired a firm hold on it. It
is likely to lose this control by any
heavy production, and possibly the low
price which prevails In the lead regions
of the west is part of a policy of 'nursing' to maintain the price for future
contingencies. The further fact must
be taken into consideration that lead
has already reached the importing point,
which .enables the American company,
and its auxiliary, the Guggenheim Exploration Co., to bring in Mexican and
.Chilian ores. The fact remains that
manipulative influences are at work in
the lead market, and so far as the miner
is concerned, he holds the sack."

■ [Speolal to The Daily News.]
Morrissey, Oct 14.—A blow of gas
occurred in No. 1 mine this afternoon,
resulting in the death of four miners
by asphyxiation. Their names are:
Alfred Herbinaux, Tony Marconi, John
Rogers and a Slavonian.
Only twenty men were In the mine at
the time, and as these rushes of gas
have occurred before, they took warning by the crackling roar of the oncoming gas and most of them made their
escape.
MorrlBsey, Oct. 14.—A terrible disaster overtook No. 1 mine at Morrissey
this afternoon at 2.80, from the effects
of which four men have been taken out
dead 'and three more have doubtless
been removed by this time. The accident was due to a large volume of gas
being struck, which flooded the mine.
The gas overtook the men, and under
its deadly influence they succumbed
before they could reach the mouth of
the tunnel. There were several narrow
escapes, and brave efforts were made
to save those who could not reach the
open air.
The unfortunate men who met their
death are ail foreigners. One body recovered already ls that ot a Frenchman, and the remainder are said to -be
Italians and Slavs.
The Morrlssey mines are naturally
gaseous, and extra large fans are provided to carry the dangerous gas from
the mines. In the present Instance it
appears that an unusually large pocket
was struck, which, under considerable
pressure, spread through the neighboring parts of the mine. This ls the
heaviest disaster that has yet visited the
Morrissey mines.
Great excitement has been caused by
the occurrence, as it recally vividly the
awful explosion that happened here lasl
-year. It ls though, that seven men
will cover the total list of dead, but it
is possible that others may have been
overlooked. It was reported that two
bodies were revived to life again, but
this report has since been denied.
Fernie, Oct. 14.—A cave In in No. 1
mine, Coal Creek, near this town, occurred this afternoon at 2 o'clock, by which
an Englishman, by the name of Fred. J
J. Scott, was killed.   Scott was work-
years until recently. The mill has been
leased by Messrs. Priugle and Craven,
and ls used by them In crushing the I.
X. L. rock. The product of both mines
ls free milling quarts, and at divers
times in the past many fine specimens
of rock carrying gold plainly visible to
the naked eye have been shown, but
work on both has been carried on ln a
desultory way, and they may still be
said to be unexploited.
The I. X. I,, has a regularly defined
lend, but the old workings have been
Idle for several'Tears. It was ln the
early days of tbe camp that the rock
on the dump now being worked was
thrown out To work It at that time
was not thought to be profitable; perhaps the owners did not know its real
value. Certain It Is that the present
lessees are well satisfied with the result
of the work already done, and will continue operations, in all probability, for
the rest of the winter.

London, Oct. 14.—The arbitration treaty
between Great Britain and France was
signed hero today by foreign secretary
Lansdowne and tho French ambassador
M. Cambon.
Paris, Oct. 14.—The signing of the Anglo-
French arbitration treaty In London today divided attention wltn the visit of the

tbe most Important achievements of foreign minister Delcasse and as likely to
exert a far-reaching political influence upon tho relations between France and Great
Britain and to directly Influence favorably
the relations of all the European powers.
The prevailing public sentiment Is favorable to the treaty.
It Is believed that king Victor Emmanuel's visit to Paris to president LoUbet and
tbo tatter's projected visit to the Italian
king at Rome may have similar treaty re-
suits.

to be one of the important objects of
the king's visit.

When his body was recovered some
time after, life was quite extinct. No

he was simply smothered alive. An inquest will be held tomorrow. The deceased was one of the large party of
Englishmen who came from Durham,
England, to work in the mines of the

not escape more or less injury, they
suffered no serious results.

Toronto, Oct. 14.—Further weakness
developed ln the stock market today.
The volume of business was large and
the market closed a trifle steadier with
one or two exceptions* Weakness in
Montreal and the break in Canadian
Pacific under professional attack in New
York, and the decline in Soo stock
there, all contributed to the nervous
condition of the market. There has
been much liquidation during the past
week. Twin City has made a new low
record and Canadian Pacific were weakest spots. Twin City sold for 81 1-4 at
tbe opening, to 79 1-2. The latter was
.the closing quotation. Canadian Pacific
was weak all day and closed at 116 1-2

seconds of equaling the world's pacing
record held by himself.
The trotting record, exhibition mile
to wagon, was held until today by Lou
Dillon, who trotted the mile in 2:04 1-2
at the Cleveland track.
Major Delmar, with owner, E. T.
Snmthers driving, reduced this today
to 2:03 3-4, Lou Dillon, five minutes
later appeared on the fleld, and, driven
by her owner, C. K. G. Billings, reduced Major Delraar's record to 2:01 3-4.
The track itself was lightning fast
today, but horsemen declare that the
strong west wind made the track at
least three seconds slower.

Victoria, Oct 14.—William Fleet Robertson, provincial mineralogist, after
several months spent ln southeast Kootenay and Poplar creek district, Is In his
office again m the department of mines.
Mr. Robertson has nothing to say of
the result of Mb visit to blocks 4593 and
4594. It Is understood tbat this will
form the subject of a report to be made
to the government, the premier having
announced this during the campaign.
The provincial mineralogist made.a
very careful survey of the Poplar creek
country. He says there have been exaggerated reports circulated as to the richness of the district Some men are
taking advantage of tbe recent rich
finds there to boom properties which
have not any showing to warrant it
This, of course, is only what might be
expected in view of the showings which
have been made in some instances.
Throughout a very wide area there
are, however, strong quartz veins, carrying gold. The great area which is
mineralized Is a strong point In favor
of the territory.
Mr. Robertson does not for a moment
doubt that the veins have good depth
and extent enough to satisfy any miner. -
Ore of the most exceptional value has
been found ln many places, but there
is need for a considerable amount of
development work before any well defined rule can be established as to the
general value of the country as a gold
producer.
After travelling up the mountains and
seeing the cracks at Frank left in tbe
rocks, Mr. Robertson thinks the work
of disintegration has not passed-away.
There will undoubtedly be other tildes,
as conditions still exist for causing them
but when these will take place Is a
matter for- conjecture. There may be
no further slides for years, but they
will undoubtedly come. He accounts
for the unstable conditions at Turtle
mountain as being due to the hot spring
at the base a short distance from Frank.

THANKSGIVING DAY.
According to the governor-general's
proclamation, today ls appointed by the
government ot Canada a public holiday
throughout the dominion "as a day of
thanksgiving to Almighty God for the
bountiful harvest and other blessings
with which Canada has been favored
this year."
Canada has good reason for giving
thanks. Peace reigns within our borders
and practically all over the British
empire. The dominion is commercially
prosperous, and the harvest now safely
stored, has been an abundant one.
In the Kootenays the rise ln silver
and the coming of the lead bounty has
lifted tbe cloud of depression that for
{ some years has lowered over this particular section of the province, and the
present local outlook is bright and full
of promise.
For the whole dominion, however, the
present year has seen a wonderful
change for the better. Canada ls filling up at a rate never before known. The
days of waiting for population are drawing to a close. Canada has been discovered, or rather redlscqvered, for over
half a century ago the Irish famine and
the clearings in the highlands drove
great swarms ot settlers into Upper
Canada, and raised it from the position
of a series of straggling settlements
Into a' powerful and populous province.
The west, seems destined to have a similar rush. Figures issued at Ottawa
last night show that the Immigrant
arrivals ln Canada for the nine months
of the present calendar year ending on
October 1st numbered 108,011. or 39,182
in excess of the total for the same
period of last year. Of this year's immigrants 43,187 came from the British
Isles, 32,498 from the continent of
Europe, and 32,329 from the United
were: British, 16,979; continental, 25,-
236; the United States, 26,617.
For the first quarter of the present
fiscal year ending on September TtOth,
the arrivals were 26,987, as against 23,-
381 for the same three months in 1902.
The British arrivals were 12,478, an increase of 6,133 j the continental arrivals,
7,218, an increase of 208 .and the American, 7,291, a decrease of 2,735.
The extraordinary diversion of British emigrants from the United States
to Canada ls made evident by the fact
that in tbe period between 1891 and
1900 726,000 persons emigrated from
Great Britain .and of these 520,000, or
72 per cent, went to the United States,
and only 90,000, or 13 per cent, to British North America. Since January 1st
Canada has attracted almost half as
many British emigrants as she did ln
the ten years preceding 1900.
Looking over our own land and comparing the situation of the dominion
today with that of many another country, there is not a thoughtful Canadian living but who will cheerfully
agree that wo have good cause for giving thanks this day.
process means our gain and their loss,
and must inevitably hasten and perpetuate the time when we shall be the
commercial conquerors of the world.
The only condition that can induce
the shipment of fixed natural products
to this country is the ability •of the producing country to deliver them to the
American consumer at a lower price
than he would have to pay for the samo
products when taken from our own natural resources. This means raw material at the lowest possible cost to all
American industries. All metals,
stones, coal and petroleum in an unmanufactured state wll come to American manufacturers at the lowest prices
at which they can be obtained. If this
should close some mines no harm can.
come to us from that fact, but a great
good. A mine closed for this reason
will perform every function ln the industrial world that a gold reserve performs In the financial world. It will
tend to give stability to our industries
and to keep down the price of the foreign product, because all men will know
that a supply is there and that the mine
will open and begin to make deliveries
the moment the price of the foreign
product ls raised above the cost of mining ln this country and delivering to
American consumers. A mine cannot be
plosed because its product Is undersold
by the products ot a foreign mine unless
the lower priced raw material is giving
employment to ten American working-
men engaged in manufacturing it into
commercial commodities, where it takes
employment from one man who might
otherwise be employed in mining the
natural product in this country. ' This
Is true of capital also. Where one dollar
ls thrown out of profitable use by the
closing of a mine because foreigners
are selling their natural products to us
at a less price than we can get them
from our own mines, ten dollars will be
profitably employed in manufacturing
the foreign raw material into commercial commodities, and in the transportation involved by the incoming natural
products and the outgoing manufactured products.
Because of its effect upon our industries and prosperity today; because of
its tendency to conserve our resources
for tbe future; because ot the certainty
that it will give this nation a position
of supremacy ln the world's markets
when-the supply of any unrenewable
product becomes exhausted ln other
countries, the policy ot admitting all
such products into this country free of
import duties ls sound and Bhould be
supported by every worklngman, every
manufacturer, every consumer, in fact,
by all of the people,
Unrenewable products are to the industrial world what gold is to the financial world. They are, In fact, gold In
a grosser form. The process of Industry
and commerce are all designed to and
do extract gold from every one of them.
If we have free trade ln gold why
should we not have free trade in all
fixed natural products from which gold,
or gold values, which Is the same thing,
can be extracted?

The demand for raw material for
manufacturing purposes as well as for
the general consumer in any country is
not always to be supplied by the home
product. New sources of supply must
then be looked for, and the question of
the conditions upon which that raw
material is to be admitted to the country needing it is one that haa more than
one side. There Is every reason to be
willing to receive Importations of such
supplies. It goes without saying that a
nation which draws only from its own
supplies hastens tho day when the store
will be exhausted, and it will then be
dependent entirely upon outside sources
to fill Its needs. In .an article dealing
with and advocating the free Importa
tlon of raw products, restricting the
term, however, to what it calls "unrenewable" products, Public Policy declares that If other nations are willing
to make shipments from their sources
of such products to our country wo
should permit them to do so, as tho
The result of the cabinet shuffle at
Victoria Is awaited with keen Interest
all over the province. No matter who
obtain the vacant portfolios, there Is
sure to be trouble. It Is a pity that Mr.
ftfcBrlde has not a few more gifts at
his disposal to satisfy the lust for offlce
amongst his followers. If the Fernie
recount next week should happen to
result in seating Mr. Smith, the premier
may be relieved of making any appointments. Mr. McBrlde's position at the
moment is hardly an enviable one, and
the fact that the government's majority
of one may vanish into the air any
day of the week must leave the government In a most delightful state of uncertainty.
Nelson needs adequate fair and recreation grounds, and the deal to acquire
the lots adjoining the present grounds
from the Canadian Pacific railway, which
will be voted on by the ratepayers next
Tuesday week Is reasonably certain to
go through. The lots given ln part ex- |
change by the city, and the additional
price asked by the railway company
appear to make a good bargain all
round. It is safe to say that the bylaw
will he approved by al arge majority.
Now premier McBrlde's troubles are

be eager to make way for that new

A Crooked Streak in All American Public
nnd Private Affairs.
Whenever tho progress oC society necessitates a new word, the coinage and
adaption of slang show thut the Unguis tit-
faculty has not perished from tho race,
says the Toronto Globe. Spurious Latin,
which Ih merely the prunouneiution of letters and lacks tlio vital tones of real language, may serve for scientific terms, but
tho public demand real words and make
them. Hence to describe the manifold personal advantages that may be furthered
under the complex political, commercial,
and Industrial conditions of today we have
a new adaptation of the horticultural word
"graft." Wo havo ns a natural sequence
the verb " to graft" and the noun "grafter''
meaning one who grafts or gets a graft.
The prevalence of grafting has promoted n
discussion in the American press, which
has led to tho publication of many opinions of a more or less theoretical nature.
Dlstarlct attorney Jerome, of New York,
ls reported aa saying that there is a
crooked streak running through' all the
methods of doing public nnd private business. But this condemnation he tempered
by saying that lie did not think the people
were as bad as the pnst generations.
"Hypocrisy in Itself Is a sign of a tenderer
public conscience," he said, "Now we have
como to the point where wo regard the
accepting of commissions as something
not very fnr removed from the line where
the criminal law begins to hnve something
to say. Wo arc beginning lo see more
clearly." Mr.- Lincoln Steftens, who may
bo considered to have qualified himself ns
an expert witness on graft, hns ■ found
among tho great grafters an opinion that
this is tho golden nge of their profession.
They never expect to seo times better.
Grafting Is ns wldey diffused nnd ns comprehensive in its tribute-staking ns it enn
be without throttling the goose which is
laying the golden eggs—"the dear public."
A writer In the Saturday Evening Post
takes a most discouraging attitude:
"It may bo disheartening to the honest
cltiaen ont of politics, to the man with the
good of his country at heart* to contemplate the fact that the trail of the grafter
is Over the politics of the country. It Is
nbout all graft, 'honest' or other kind.
Disinterestedness is nn Illusion. There ls
no such thing. Inliuence nnd polltlcnl
po^er are worth exactly what they cash
in for In patronage and perquisites. A
politician who cannot get jobs for his
peoplo does not Inst a week. Graft is the
bnsis of politics. Graft is the life-blood of
politics. Graft controls, dominates, sways.
Hairs enn he split about terms. Protests
enn bo made. Hands can be held up In
horror. Individuals can proclaim they nre
free from the taint; but nnalvze It, sift It.
dissect It, and hack of It nil, under It nil,
when hypocrisy is cleared and men tell the
truth, ls graft, graft, graft."
Tho Minneapolis Journnl takes n hopeful
view, and after reviewing g, number of
grafts exposed under former administrations, argues that tho present age shows
marked progress and Improvement. This
corresponds in a measure to the opinion
of Mr. Steffens, thnt the public arc awakening to tho existence of the evil, and that
tbo grafters see their impending doom.
Tho St. Albans's Messenger nlso tnkes n
hopeful view, and sees a prospect of reform in tho recent exposures which
reached to government officials, walking
delegates, and even to religious institutions- In Britain parliament has felt impelled to deal with secret commissions. But
there are few tradesmen who ennnot. If
they wish, hoar testimony to the prevalence of the practice, nnd few agents who
do not recognize the necessity of at least
the advantage of corrupting intermediaries,

METAL MARKET OUTLOOK
SILVER     OVER   THE    SIXTY     CENT
MARK   AGAIN.
PRICE OF LONDON  LEAD  FOR PAST
YEARS.
With silver ovor CO cents, the silver
miners havo rcusou to pluck up courage;
it Is u substantial rise, and must have a
stimulating effect. It is the highest price
that has been quoted for more than two
years, and the rise seems to be a continuing one.
What has made it? No doubt a number
of things have contributed to it. Among
these the colnuge by the United States and
Great Britain of standard silver pit-cos for
the oriental trade no doubt has hud Hs
effect, and guided by this practical example
of what can be done for the coinage uf tin*
white metal, the report of the monetary
commission of the favorable reception by
the different European nations of its suggestion thut the leading civilized and commercial nations agree on a ratio fur tiie
coinage of silver for the trade of the dark
races. This ratio would probably he 'A2 to
1, or possibly 30 to 1, and at that ratio no
doubt tiie value of the sliver coins could
be maintained for years to come. It Is
certain that ut present thu forms the most
promising and practical outlook for a common standard of value between tlio world's
traders of all nations and races*, for the
brown men are not yet ready for the gold
standard, and trading with them must be
on some basis that they can fully understand and utilize. This basis would tlx
the silver market at a little over sixty
cents an ounce as a permanent proposition.
The metal markets have been variable,
showing increased activity ln some directions, while In others only a moderate
1 business has been done, says the Engineering and Mining Journal of New York.
There has been little change In sllvor,
prices continuing good. Mote purchases
have been mado hero, on account of Phll-
liplno coinage The expected demand from
the east is developing rather slowly, but
dealers abroad are still basing their views
upon heavy orders for India and China.
In copper, more buying has been dono at
the lower range of prices established. This
has been especially the case with foreign
buyors, who seem to have reached tho conclusion that no further tall Is to hc expected. Stocks abroad, both for sale and
In manufacturers' hands, nro not large, and
If the present movement continues exports
will show a considerable Increase.
Spelter Is somewhat easier, ns the gal-
vnnlzers nro about,through with their fall
trade, and demand from thnt source Ir
falling Off. Brass manufacturers continue
busy, but supplies are now fully equal to
the demand. Zinc oro prices continue
rather high.
Load has boon rather quiet, with about
tho USitftl amount of buying for consumption. The higher rato of prices recently
estbllshed Ib still maintained, and there
seems to be no Immediate probability of a
change.

OWES HIS LIFE TO A NEIGHBOR'S
KINDNESS.
Mr. D. P. Daugherty, well known
throughout Mercer and Sumner counties,
W. Va.. most likely owes his life to the
kindness of a neighbor. He was almost
hopelessly afflicted with diarrhoea; was
attended by two physicians who gave him
little, if any, relief, when a neighbor learning of his serious condition, brought him
a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera,
and Diarrhoea Remedy, which cured him
ln leas than twenty-four hours. For sale

NEW YORK SUN IS WRONG.
Thinks an Independent Sentiment Is Growing In Canada.
The New York Sun editorially says: "At
various times during tbe last few months
wo have called attention to the growth In
Cnnadu of tho spirit of nationality. Distinct emphasis ls given to this point by
the recent promulgation of what may be
called the platform of the Canadian National league. Certain clauses of this document indicate an unquestionable growth
of protectionist sentiment across the border, and with the fact that In conversation our northern neighbors are fast getting into firmly llxcd luibiis of referring to
themselves ns Canadians rather than British, thoro Is no question the Canadians
wish to paddle their own canoe and guide
It Into waters of their own selection, free
from any dictating or oven partial control by the mother country. Whic Canada
possesses und exorcises a wide measure of
control ln tho conducting of her affairs,
she Is by tho termB of her constitution restricted ln the full exercise of national
powers, notably in that of treaty making
nnd in tho right to appeal, In certain cases
from the Canadian courts to the Privy
council of England. A case on point appears In tho Alaska boundary matter. It
ls quite certain Canada would very much
rather settle that case herself with the
United States, thnn leave it to a conference in which England nnd English Interests may be considered In the settlement. With a rapidly Increasing foreign
commerce, Canada desires and needs moro
direct relations with her markets,   she Is j

What tho Critics Say of the Artists That
Appear at the Opera House Tonight
This evening a notable musical event ls
to take place at the opera house when
Miss Edna Sutherland, Miss Merrlelle G.
Patton and C. Everette Warriner will appear for the first time ln Nelson.
The trio have earned the highest eulogies
wherever they have appeared In both tho
east-and west. Mr. Warriner Ib a solo
mandollnlst of extraordinary skill and by
his clever handling produces results hitherto supposed to bo beyond the possibilities of this instrument.
Miss Patton has that rare gift, a rich and
pleasing contralto voice believed by many
critics to be the finest ever heard In Canada.   Of her the Musical Courier says:
"Miss Patton's voice is a powerful contralto of good range and quality. She Is
a young artist, and ln addition to her musical gifts, possesses a charming personality."
Miss Sutherland is an elocutionists of
marked ability and thorough training of
whom the Mall and Empiie says:
"Miss Sutherland displayed throughout
her diversified program a rare sympathy,
a fine sense of humor and a true appreciation of her subjects, which could not fall
to win her audience."

G. A. Rendell, is in from the Waterloo
mine at the head of the north fork of
Kettle river, with a trial shipment of oro
from that property. The mine was bonded
by Mr. Rendell and associates a short time
ago, but beyond testing tho ore nothing
will be done till spring, as tho transfer was
made too late to do anything this year.
The mine Is a silver proposition, and from
the development work dono on It so far
promises to make a good shipper. The ore
brought over by Mr. Rendell Is now at the
Hall Mines smelter undergoing treatment.
A well known Sandon man wns arrested
In Nelson on Tuesday night, charged with
obtaining 1310 on false pretenses. He will
be sent back to Sandon today to hnve the
affair investigated. It appears that the
accused gave a cheque for 1436 to a business man of Sandon who cashed It. The
accused thereupon started for Montreal to
attend the funeral of a relative who had
Just died. In the meantime tho cheque
was presented and there was only $225 at
the bank to meet tt, A telegraph message
to the police here resulted In the arrest.
Since the arrest the money has been made
Will Probably Take Blace Here on Monday Next.
S. S. Taylor, K.C., made a formal application yesterday before his honor Judge Forin for a recount of all the ballots ln the
Fernle election.
No specific time was settled yesterday
but it Is stated that tho re-count will probably take place ln this city next Monday
or later ln the week.
All told there are at least fifty ballots to
be reviewed, that number having been rejected by the returning officer in his official count last Saturday,
There ls of course a great deal more attached to the re-count than there would be
under ordinary circumstances. If the result should be to seat Mr. Smith, then the
McBrlde government's majority of one-
after electing a speaker—disappears and
the situation at Victoria will be turned
around from what it is at present.
No definite account of the Fernie ballots
has yet been given out, all that has been
announced is that the total' vote cast re-
suted In Ross obtaining 310 votes, Smith 309,
McPherson 13tl, and that fifty ballots were
rejected.
At the recount here it will possible to
learn all the missing details.

THANKSGIVING DAY.
Trouble in Sight For Grouse—Will Trout
Break the Game Laws?
Todny being Thanksgiving Dny will bo
celebrated ns a general holiday all over
Canada. While tho day In the dominion'
has not tiie same Importance that ls attached to it ln the United States, it is
nevertheless gladly welcomed as the last
holiday of the year on which summer
sports are pleasant to watch or tnko part
in. In the east It la celebrated by big
military Held days, sham fights and parades, and ls also tho day for big football
matches.
Till a few years ago Thanksgiving Day
In Canada was held on tlio same date as
in the States, the last Thursday ln No-
vember.   This date was sot by the gov-

eminent in response to the representations
of business men, who found that tho difference iu the dates led lo a lot of unnecessary lost time and confusion. The general
Canadian public did not take kindly to
the date, however, and an outcry was raised which eventually led to the second
Thursday in October being substituted..
In Nelson tho day will probably pass off
very quietly, as no public celebrations will
be held. All banks and public offices will
bo closed all day, and the stores aud offices
will likewise be shut. The'cut rates on the
steamers nnd railways for the day have
been token advantage of by many sports-
men, and the partridges and ducks along
the hike shores aro likely In havo a bad
dny of it. While tho trout fishing season
is closed it Is not outside the possibilities
that a few fishermen will try their luck
again, to seo whether the fish observe the
game laws or not. There will be no regular match on at the rifle ranges, but probably a few of the members of the Rifle
association will spend a portion of the duy
there practising.
In the States Thanksgiving Day Is observed as tho day of family reunions, nnd
during the past few years has been regarded in many places there as of greater
Importance even than Christmas. Tho turkey Is the bird associated witii the day,
and the number of this popular fowl consumed in the union on that day runs up
Into.the millions.
In Canada the turkey Is also In great
demand for the occasion, but as It Is a
dny more for sport and excursions thnn
dinners tt does not hold the same place
that it does in the republic to the south.
The Presbyterian, Congregational Baptist
and Methodist congregations will hold a
union Thanksgiving service this morning
In the Methodist church. In the evonlng
there will be a first class concert at the
opera house, by tiie S ii the rlnnd-Patton-
Warriner company.
Thero will be a Turkey nnd Chicken

AN  INDIAN  CINDERELLA.
Bohemian, Itnlian and English Witnesses
Try to Identify the Slipper.
An unusual case came up yesterday
morning at the police court before E. A.
Crease when an Indian thief was convicted
of stealing some clothing from a Hall street
boarding house. On Tuesday morning when
Richard Day, a guest at the Bellevlcw
hotel, arose from bed he discovered that
a numher of articles of his wearing apparel were missing, among them a pair
of boots. In place of his own boots another pair of the same size, but badly worn
had been left. Day did not waste any
time ln speculating as to the manner In
whicli his property had disappeared, but
philosophically donned tho hoots thnt were
there with what clothing had been left, and
after making up the deficiencies from his
valise, proceeded to the police station.
He notified chief Jarvls and the latter
inspected tho substitute boots, which had
a two inch band of red leather round the
tops. After questioning the proprietress of
tho Bcllevlew, Mrs, Svoboda, suspicion fell
on an Indian named Joe Peel, who was
released not long ngo from the penitentiary, hut who recently has been working
with an Italian road gang a few miles west
of the city. Peel was arrested, and on
Italian who had been working alongside of
him, came up to Identify the boots.
The caso was called yesterday with three
witnesses, viz., the owner of tho stolen
property, Mrs. Svoboda and tho Italian.
Michael Scully waa also present to Interpret for the Italian laborer. Mrs. Svoboda is Bohemian and not well acquainted
with the English language, and could not
mako her menning clear .and as the Italian
became nervous and disclaimed knowing
anything about either boots or prisoner,
the case from a simple one became extremely Involved.
Tho Interpreter, however, proved to bo
the witness wanted, and after giving up
trying to get anything out of the Italian
he examined the boots himself and Immediately identified them as the ones he had
seen the prisoner wearing on numerous
occasions.
As thoy fitted tho accused perfectly, and
It was shown that he had been hanging
around the Bellevlcw without any retuon-
abe excuse  for so  doing  the magistrate
There will be a Turkey and Chicken
dinner served at tho Delmonico Restaurant
from 12 noon till 8 p.m. today.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.
Editor, Tho Daily News.—Will you kindly allow me through your paper to place
beforo tho -farmers and fruit growers a
scheme for tho advancement of our province. The advantages of British Columbia
us a place for sottlers are very little known
and It cannot be denied that where printed
matter will often puss unheeded the object itself will arrest attention.
My proposition, therefore, is to collect
samples of roots, fall and winter fruit, etc.,
to be forwarded to Great Britain. Here
they could remain for u certain time on
exhibition in the large towns and afterwards be distributed amongst the hospitals and such like institutions whero they
would no doubt be highy appreciated. 1
would suggest printing a list of the donors
together with particulars of the fruit, etc.,
which each contributes, so that intending settlers might if they so desired, obtain information about uny particular locality' from a resident. By this means It
might also be possible to open up fresh
markets for our fruit and introduce capital,
I would esteem it a tavor if intending
donors of produce would kindly give probable weight and class of sample when
communicating with me, ln order to facilitate arrangements for collection. Yours
truly, W.   V.   LEONARD,   J.P.

POORMAN-GRANITE MINES.
Is  Being Sold  to  Star Mining Company
Owners of the Star Group.
Negotiations have practically been completed for the leasing of the stampmill and
tramway of the Poormnn-GrunUe mine to
the Star Mining & Milling company.
The Duncan United Mines, the English
company which has been operating the
Poorman-Granlte till tho property shut
down some time ugo have made no announcement us to when work will be resumed, but as tho mill and tramway huve
been leused for live years It ls apparently
not their intention to reopen for the present
at least.
The Star group was purchased last summer by a number of Philadelphia capitalists from the origluul owners, J. Swed;
berg and associates, of Nelson: It is located a little less than a. mile above the
Granite, and it Is the intention of the new
owners to connect the property with the
Oranlto tramway, and run their ore down
the hill direct to the mill. H. L. Gllmour I
is now superintending development of the I
property, and a small forco of men has
been at work there for the past month
erecting bunkhouses, cutting trails, and
getting things iiv shape generally fur the
winter's operations. The ore from the Star
Is practically of the same character us that
of tho Poorman-Grunlte, being a white
quartz carrying freo milling gold.
The mill is located on tho banks of the
Kootenuy river,directly down the hill from
the mine, with which It Is connected hy a
wagon road. The Columbia & Kootenuy
brunch of the C. P. R. passes within a
quarter of a mile of tho mill at Kootenay
Crossing. Tho plant Is a modern and well
equipped one, dropping twenty stamps. A
frequent source of trouble while tho Poor-
man-Grunlto was In operation lay in tho
fact that the creek from which tiie water
supply was obtained was not large enough
at certain times of the year to give power
for both mill and compressor at the mine
at the samo time, so that only one could be
run. The now company will havo no troubjo
from this source and tho prospects nre
good for a long run of both mine and mill.
Thero will be a Turkey and Chicken
dinner served at the Delmonico Restaurant
from 12 noon till 8 p.m. today.
