ACCIDENT AT THE AMPLE.
List Monday afternoon a serious
accident occurred at the Ample mill, by
escaping gas from the acetylene plant,
which caught fire and burned W. H.
King, R. McGuire and J. D. Ferguson
about the hands and face to such an extent that the two former have their heads
and hands entirely in bandages and were
tor a while in a very serious state.
Charley Adolph as soon as the accident happened was sent to town for
medical aid, and Dr. Sanson left at once
for the mine no time being lost to reach
the injured men. After carefully relieving the men of their sufferings the doctor made arrangements for them to
come to town which was accomplished
Tuesday afternoon by the company's
team. The house of E. S. Peters having
been made ready the men were at once
taken to it and are having all the comforts that can possibly be given them.
The accident was not through negligence
and may have happened to anyone, and
it was a miracle that the men escape 1
with tbeir. eyesight and damage they
have received, although severe.
The acetylene plant had not been used
for forty-eight hours, owing to it leaking and to have the gas all escape before repaiiing. The three men had taken
portions of the machine apart and had
carried them outside the building used
for the plant, and as the air was quite
clear it was thought advisable to bring a
light and to make sure, they held a
lighted candle through the door
Beveral minutes before entering with
the light. They commenced work again
With lighted candles and were in the
act of raising the generator out and had
it to the top of the tank when the suction drew the stray gas oui qf the pipes
and as soon as space was allowed between the tank and the generator the
explosion took place setting fire to the
mens clothes. All three made for the
outside and Ferguson who was the least
injured, having been on the off side, set
about to help tlie other two who were
in flamep, King was burned up to the
elbows and all his face and neck, as was
also McGuire except his arm, but his
hands and face received a bad scorching.
Ferguson's forehead and one hand is tl e
extent of his injures. King is the
worst and while endeavoring to extinguish the fire on his body, pieces of
llesh would fall f ■ out his arms.
Since the acetylene has been ins ailed
King has had charge of it and was aware
of its workings. Nothing happened to
the machinery, and is in as good a condition as ever. The men were taken to
the bunk houses and everything possible
was done to relieve them until medical
assistance arrived when the doctor carefully dressed the wounds. The men are
now resting easily oulv King aud McGuire being confined to their couches and
Ferguson is on hand nursing his comrades and the doctor expectB to have
them around again   shortly.
Buller's Defence.
London, Oct. 19.—The Pietermaritz-
burg correspondent of the Daily Mail
writes as follows: "In his speech returning thanks for the sword of honor
presenvod to him by the citizens, Sir
lied vers Buller made a spirited defence
of _ie strategy.    He said  that  he did
not believe that any general had ever
faced a situation so difficult as that
which confronted him when he disembarked at Cape Town without an army
and with no hope of one for another
seven weeks longer.
"I found Mafeking and Kimberley
beleagured," continued be, "and two
main avenues across the Free States,
Bethulie bridge and Norval's Post, in
the hands of the enemy with Ladysmith
nearly surrounded. If I had waitea for
the army and then advanced on Bioemfontein, it would have been at least
twelve weeks before I could have exerted influence on the situation.
"In that time the Boers would have
completely overrun and occupied Natal
and what would have been the effect of
that on Europe and the British people."
Gen. Buller then proceeded to make
the interesting announcement that Sir
Evelyn Wood had wired asking to be
allowed to come out to serve under him.
He said he never was so tempted in his
life to take a man at his word, for he
had begun to look upon Natal as a forlorn hope, but I would have been cowardly to have let Sir Evelyn come to
take the risk.
"I knew that if I failed to relieve
Ladysmith," he exclaimed I should lose
the supreme command. I lost it, and
rightly, I think, but I had taken on the
task and was bound to see it through to
a conclusion."
Sir Redvers paid the highest compliments to the loyalty and gallantry of
his troops under the tremendous strain,
a strain, he believed, such as no soldiers
in the history of the world had ever to
undergo.	
Jos. DeShields and family have moved
into town from the Horse Shoe Bend
where they have been the past summer,
The Cache wagon road gave away
Wednesday, near the Nigger's cabin and
caused quite an opening in the road.
Men were put on to repair and it will be
in shape again in a few days. Tbe heavy
rain of last week caused the road to
slide.	
John A. Murray returned from Bridge
River where he had been for the past
several weeks. He left for the coast this
morning and will return shortly and
spend some time in the Bridge river
section where he is interested in mineral claims.
J. Dunlop, Dan. Hurley, N. Coughlin,
Win. Young and W. J. Abercrombie left
by special sta.e for lytton this morning
on their way to Vancouver. All are
connected with the Lorne deal, and go
to Vancouver to complete final arrangements and receive the first payment
from the English syndicate which has a
bond on the property.
Last eveuing a meeting was held for
the purpose of forming a quadrille club,
which was very successful. Arrangements have been made for the hall and
musicians and dances will be held every
Wednesday evening. The men in charge
of the club are: Fred H. Nehon, president; Arthur Phair, secretary-treasurer;
committee: president, eecretary and W.
M. Brandon. The club starts off with a
good memlership and will have their
firBt dance on Wednesday evening 31st.
FIVESTAMPMILL
FOR   THE   L0RNE-W00D
CHUCK GROUP.
Will be Taken In this Winter and Will be in
Shape to Crush the Rock Early in the
Spring. Additional Stamps and Hochinery
Will be Put In Later.
This morning the principals in the
Lorne-Woodcuck deal left for the coast
to receive the first payment on their
property from the English syndicate,
represented in Vancouver by Mahon, Mc-
Farland A Mahon. Meantime 0. A. Har-
thorn has gone up Bridge river and will
take charge of the properties pending
final arrangements as to the management.
It is the intention to take in a five-
stamp mill this winter and have it put
in position to run the first thing in the
spring. The five stamp mill is only for
the preliminary working and will be
kept going while the development work
on a systematic scale iB being undergone.
The property wili be thoroughly opened
up by a large gang of men and the syndicate will have things in shape shortly
to know where they are and the machinery necessary for working the ore and
saving the gold.
Mr. Dunlop this week secured a bond
on the Shure Winner from 0. A. Har-
thorn, which adjoins the group, and it
will be added to the syndicates holdings.
Besides the new rolls for the Toronto
Lillooet Gold Reefs Co's mill, additional
ones will be shipped and the plant will
be considerable increased so as to be
able to handle a greater quantity of ore.
Four large concentrators besides the two
at the Cache mill will be added to the
plant, as the assays and returns from the
concentrates are very high aud the company will make a considerable saving by
putting in the concentrators. Development work continues on the mine with
good results and experienced mining
men who have been at the property
lately, are simplv astonished by the
large body of ore, and the works, and
say that the mill should have a capacity
of a hundred tons per day instead of
half or quarter of that. During Col.
Rives trip to San Franciseo he will inspect the machinery and make all tbe
necessary arrangements for increasing
the plant.
Mr. H. S. Southard last week visited
the North Fork of Bridge River and
secured a working bond on the Maid of
England group of claims, owned by
Messrs. Case, Johnson, Halbrook and
Sherwood. Work by Mr. Southard will
commence in the spring, continuing
where the present owuers have been
working and with more tunneling ex-
pacts to open up a large body of ore. He
was well pleased with the property and
found it fully up to the representations
made by the owuers. The Maid of
England group of claims has been
worked for the past two seasons
by   the  owners,  and   in   a quiet way
there has been done considerable
work the time they have had to
put on it. First thev had the difficulties of not having a trail and had to
bridge the river and make trails to their
property. They have comfortable quarters and are all practical men and have
showed enterprise and courage in staying with he claim they secured with
the limited means at their command,
They deserve success and it is hoped
their anticipations will be realized. As
far as we know of the Maid of England
claims they have a good showing,
principally copper and a good sized body
of ore and parties who have looked at
the property think well of it.
English German Alliance.
London, Oct, 20.—Germany and England have formed a alliance to maintain
the territorial intergrity of China and
to keep the ports open.
The terras of this important agreement of two countries which was arrived
at Oct. 16th between Lord Salisbury
and Count Von Hatsfeldt, German
ambassador to England, are officially
given out as follows: The German
government and Her Britannic Majesty's government, being desirous to maintain their interests in China and their
right under existing treaties, have
agreed to observe the following principles regarding a mutual policy in
China: Firstly—It is a matter of point
permanent international interest that
the ports on the river and literal of
China should remain free and open to
trade and to every other legitimate
form of economic activity fjr the peoples
of all countries without distinction, ana
the two governments agree on their part
to uphold the same tor all the Chinese
territory as far as they can exercise influence. Secondly—Both governments
will not on their part make use of the
present complications to obtain for
themselves any territorial advantage in
the Chinese dominion, and will direct
their policy towards maintaining undiminished the territorial condition of the
Chinese Empire. Thirdly, in case of
another power making use of the complications in China in order to obtain
under any form whatever such territorial advantages, the two contracting
parties reserve to themselves the right
to come to a preliminary understanding
regarding the eventual step to be taken
for the protection of tbeir own iuterests
in China. Fourthly—The two governments will communicate this agreement
to the other powers interested, especially Austria-Hungary, France, Italy,
Japan, Russia and the United States,
and invite them to accept the principles
recorded in it,"
A Profligate Government.
Since the close of the Franco-German
war Germany has been at peace; one has
none of the extraordinary expense that
war brings. The result of the contest
brought her, in addition to the
provinces of Alsace and Loraine, the
enormous sum of $1,000,000,000 in cash.
She should be, therefore, in fairly prosperous condiiion; yet according to the
Freinsinnige Zeitung, the debt of the
empire has been trebled since the death
of Emperor William, which occuied
shortly after the war.
FROn LYTTON.
The heaviest rain storm of the season
visited this vicinity Saturday, causing
heavy mud slides on the railway near
Spuzzmun which delayed the train
slightly that day, but the track is now
clear and trains are running tbe usual
way.
Mr Ed. Choateof North Bend,
has resigned his position as C.P.R.
bridge inspector. He is succeeded by
Mr. T. Stewart formerly bridge foreman
at Vancouver.
Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Bainbridge of
North Bend will leave for a visit to
England next month.
Miss Loring returned from Ashcroft
this week, where she had been visiting
her sister Mrs. J. W. Burr.
Miles Silverthorn, the genial host  of   •
the Bailey hotel,jhas returned from Vancouver, much benefitted by the trip.
The O.P. R. company paid their employees Saturday and a few of the
"generous souls" are at present, as I
write, becoming more so. There is also
a potlatch in session in the rancherie
which no doubt will form a later attraction.
Politics are very quiet one would
never think by the tone of the sports in
our village that a big campaign is at
hand. One reason for so little interest
shown is that neither of the candidates
are known. Another, one of the Kootenay papers stated that the candidates
did dot intend to "blow themselves"
during the campaign. Now in Lillooet,
no doubt, this would not make the
slightest difference, but Lytton well—
For more than two months previous
to the late provincial elections, one
could smell molten lava in the air
around this burg, but then you know
our "Dinny" was in it— not the air, the
tight, which made an entirely different
matter.
Mr. C. C. Howell, of Columbus, Ohio,
who has been visiting friends in Lillooet
for several days left this week for the
east. 	
The Seaton Lake Sawmill company
this wee. received a large boom of logs
for their mill to accommodate the public
with lumber.
G. P. Fitzgerald while in town last
week secured a bond on the Royal group
on Cadwallader, owned by Messrs. P. V.
Heath and E. Ostrander.
The road gangs employed on the
Bridge river trail will all be in town
this week having completed the work
they were doing. Parties coming down
report tne trail being in good shape all
the way, all parties concerned doing
good work.
The Consolidated Cariboo Hydraulic
Mining Company, Ltd., of Bullion Cariboo district, B. C. completed the cleanup tor the second run on the 1st. instant
and have shipped the result thereof
iu one large ingot of solid gold, weighing
9,040 troy ounces (753 lbs 4 oz) valued at
$154,765.00. This, we are informed, is
the prod let of a run of 65 days washing
with 2,750 miners inches of water and is
probably the largest ingot of gold ever
shipped east across the continent from
any hydraulic mine,—Journal.

RIC. A. FRASER, Editor and Proprietor.
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1900.
The deal for the Lome and Woodchuck group of claims is about completed and the fitst of the month the
first payment will he made by the English syndicate for the property to the
owners. From what we can learn the
syndicate is a strong one and is a
business outfit iront every point and it
is with pleasure theryare welcomed into
the Lillooet district to open np and
develop the mines. We predict success
for them as they have secured undoubtedly, two of the best group of claims in
the Bridge River section, claims which
have poid from the grass roots, with the
primitive arrastra to grind up the roCi.
Notwithstanding the mineral resources
of the district being kept back by reports from would be ''mining experts,"
for the past t«vo years development work
has continued by the prospectors and
miners, and not only opened up good
gold bearing ledges on their claims for a
distance of miles, but have produced
bullion to show the world at large that
Bridge River has good properties and
that "mining experts" do not know the
difference between a good and bad
property. It has been Lillooet's misfortune to have much characters visit
the district with the purpose of securing
properties, tieing them up, at cheap
figures and such agreements that the
prospector would be hampered considerably making a deal with them. The result was an adverse report was circulated broadcast in regards to the property or properties reported on. The
reason often given was, tbat owing to
the failure in the district at one time ol
a company owning a prop»rty was sufficient to drive away capital and that
if they were to give a favorable report
on a Bridge River property, although
seventy five miles distance from tbe
property which did not turn out good,
their positions were in jeopardy if the
property they took hold of did not turn
out big. They did not have confidence
in their own judgement and were looking for their salary, taking no chances
on giving a favorable report.
Lillooet can boast of as fine mineral
showings as there is in the province and
now that capital and the attention ol*
legitimate mining men are turning this
way.it will only be a short time until
hundreds of good properties will be
working large gangs of men and the
sound of the stamps crushing the ore
will be heard on all the creeks and
valleys, turning out the bullion in
quantities which will satisfy the shareholders and owners in tbe mines of Lillooet.    "Keep your eye on Lillooet,"
the opposite effect in the campaign
Taking the vote polled at the last provincial election, one would suppose tha t
MacNeill would be an easy winner. In
Rossland Riding Curtis polled fully 95
per cent, of the labor vote and only won
by 34, while Mackintosh did not poll
more than 10 per cent, of the Liberals.
There are about 600 labor votes in the
district that will, if they vote, be polled
for Foley. This taken from the Liberal
candidate will leave a majority of over
200 for MacNeill in the Rossland Biding.
East Yale gave a conservative majority
of 220 over the Liberal and Martin
candidates combined. West Yale,
Rosslanu, Nelson and Slocan also have
large Conservative majorities. Unless
tlie unexpected happens MacNeill will
carry the constituency by a large majority."	
A Secret Ballot.
It must be born in mind that in the
Dominion election shortly to take place
every elector can vote with absolute
security and the government or its
agents cannot discover how he has
marked his ballot. There are numbers
on tbe stubs to provide against fraud,
when the elector asks for a ballot the
returning officer pulls off one numbered
stub and retains it. On the return of
the ballot after it is marked the officer
sees that the number on the remaining
stub corresponds with that on the stub
that has been removed. Then he pulls
off the other stub and deposits the ballot, in the box. There are no maiks on
the ballot by which it can be indenti-
tied. Voters need not be alarmed at
any threats that may be made by
political heelers as to the knowledge of
now they voted.
'Prospectors and others who own
claims and have sufficient work done,
should not fail to secure a crown grant,
as parties seeking mineral claims much
prefer crown grants to the property
they are taking hold of. Assessment
work has been done for the past few
years on claims by different owners and
they should not delay in securing a clear
title to their property.
A Sure Winner.
The Greengood  Miner,   (Liberal)   in
discussing tbe campaign   probabilities,
says:—
"The political fight is now on with
three candidates in the field. The Tories
claim that Cris Foley will injure MacNeill and the grits that he will defeat
Gailiher, but both of the old parties be-
i eve that the labor candidate will have
The Siwash Had rfi.s Views.
When ex-Governor Hon. T. R. Mclnnes paid bis visit to Atlin in the days
of his tenancy of government house, as
all visitors to Atlin do, he fell in with a
well built and extremely useful Indian
who at that time enjoyed a monopoly of
tho baggage handling for transient
visitors to the camp. Since his retirement from the gubernatorial chair, Hon.
Mr. Mclnnes has again visited Atlin—
and naturally he saw Big Tom again.
"I guess you don't remember me,"
said the doctor in a patronizing   tone—
"I was through here a year or two
ago."
The Siwash surveyed the portly form,
taking it in slowly from toe to hat.
Then he leisurely expectorated a large
quad of chewing tobacco.
"Nawitka," he observed. Mika

"Mox winters gone," and he waved

The Chinese Commission.
F. J Deane, secretary of the Royal
Commission to investigate the question
of Chinese and Japanese immigration
into the Province, will at once proceed
to make arrangements for the proceedings of the Commission. With a view to
facilitating business Mr. Deane has been
instructed to visit the different places in
the Province where the question is acute
and collect such statistics and other
information as will be a service to the
Oommissioners when they meet.
Sentimental persons will be shocked
to learn that Captain Parker when
called upon to surrender did not use the
word never. " To hell with you," was
the Captains retort.

In the last House of the representative from Nova Scotia, twelve were sup
porters of tlie government and eight
were Conservatives.
New Brunswick returned five Liberals,
eight Conservatives, and one Independent.
Prince Edward Island has five representative, of whom two at present are
Conservatives.
Fourteen of the sixty five constituencies of Quebec now has representatives
who oppose the Laurier government.
Forty-five of the ninty-two representatives of Ontario were elected a.-
straight Liberals and forty were straight
Conservatives. Seven weie elected as
Independents Patrons.
Manitoba has seven representatives,
four Liberals and three Conservatives.
The Territories are given four representatives, of whom two are Liberal one
a patron and one conservative.
British Columbia now sends four supporters of the government and two supporters of the opposition.
The full strength of the two parties is:

While the statement may appear adverse to the opposition it should not le
f jrgotten that the Liberals did not receive a majority of the votes polled ai
the general election of 1896. As a matter of fact they only polled a maj irity of
the total vote, and as Fielding now says
that Independents and P.itrons are not
here to stay, and Liberal majorities in
many aistricts were a mere handful,
there is every ground for believing that
they will be swept out of power when
election day conies. Here are the
figures of the votes cast for the respective parties, as given in the Blue Book, at
the election of 1896:
Conservative  119,830
Liberal   897,469
Patron    89,898
Independent 34,393
The opposition need not feel discouraged by the bluster of the Liberals "in
the fighting line," over their great prospects. The electors should always bear
in mind that the Liberal Conservatives
polled 22,000 more votes in theaggregaie
than the Liberals did, and besides holding their own, will redeem scores of dis-
t ricts at the first opportunity which were
deceived by Liberal promises, and are
now disgusted at their utter failure to
it deem their promises.
He Needed Training.
The carefully read young men had left
his native village and gone to the city to
find a situation and a career. His acquaintance was small and became of
that he simply went about from place to
(lace seeking whatever fate might throw
in his way. He wanted to get in wholesale grocery house, and of course heoulv
visited houses of that line. He was almost rudely turned away from the firsi
three or four places, but he finally found
one where the proprietor himself received him with courtesy* He stated
his case briefly and clearly, as he had
read in a guide book to young men starting out in life, and the merchant looked
him over.
"Ura." he said, thoughtfully, "you have
had no experience in this business?"
"No. sir," responded the applicant,
"but I want to learn it."
"Yes, I sse.   Do you chew tobacco?"
"No Sir."
"Do vou smoke?"
"No.'sir."
"Do you play poker?"
"No, sir."
"Do you bet on races?"
"No. sir."
"Do you drink?"
"No, sir."
"Do you run round at night?"
"No, sir."
• "Um—er," hesitated the   merchant,
"and you   ha*re no experience   in   this
bueines."
"No, sir. but, as I said, I want very
much to learn it."
"I'm sorry." said the merchant, shaking his head, "but I'm afraid you won't
do. You see, your early education has
been neglected, and vou are handicapped
now with so much to learn that the
Lord only knows when the business
would have a chance. Stay in town a
year and then come and see me. Good
morning."
