A call linn lieen issued for tenders Ior
i ho construction of a wagou toad to
connect the Hewett mine with Silverton.
This property ia Imtlly handicapped for
the want of a road for the delivery of
■applies nl the mine and tlie tranepur-
lation of their ores lo the Wharf. At
present the company operating this
propeny are employing a force of 15
men, which will be Increased lo 30 men
ah soon n.s the wagon road in completed
Ah the ground over which it in to he
built 18 mainly flats it should not take
over 30 days to complete the road.
The Hewett mine is u .silver-lead
proposition and lies ahout four miles
froui Silverton on lhe southwest slope ol
Vancouver or Hewett mountain. It
has been operated under its preseut
management Ior the past year ends
very large ntnoiiuUuf development work
done upon it. There are three tunnel*
driven upon the vein, in all some 1-00
feet oftuilnel having heen driven, besides
other underground development work
accomplished. So far ihis season there
htfS been shipped to the smelter from
this property 70 tons of high grade ore,
part of another caiload being non-on
om dock. With the completion of a
wagon road the management will lie utile
In >-hi|> nt :i good profit a large part of the
lug dump*Oi ore accumulated nt the
mouths of the various tunnels while
doing the  present  development   work.
l'i re.    while   somewhat   similar  in
nharacler to that shipped by the Van-
eon,-, r mine of Ihis camp, does not carry
q -. as large a percentage of lead,
.ihh.Migli it is claimed hy some fuiuiliai
With thu proper! v that the ledge is
identical with that of the Vancouver.
Be that as it may the Hewett mine does
n..t require the endorsement ol any oilier
mine to le.-coinend it. as it is fully able
to eland on its own showing, the high
quality and quantity ol it* oro proving it
a mine and a good one.

A few weeks ngo, it will he leineni-
bered, the Fishermaiden claims were
restaked by local parties, the Company
having ovei looked lhe necessity of recording the annual assessment work, although many times lhe necessary amount
of work had been done. The Company
had some grounds for mi action nnd had

At the Wakefield mine and mill everything is at a standstill owing to (lie
non-arrival of the new manager. This
is to ho regretted as the season is already
far advanced and the starting up ofthe
Wakelield property In the dead of
winter will he a difficult task.
Some one hundred and fifty colors aie
now obtained from coal tar, aud these
have almost entirely supplanted vegetable ami animal dyes. In fact only two of
the vegetable clusi. ind'goand logwood,
are still ol any considerable importance.
Coal yields a large amount of coloring
matter, the magenta obtained from a ton
being sufficient to dye 300 yards of fjan-
nel; the amine )■__(. yards: the Vermillion

THE FIRST MATCH A WIN.
The New Denver ball tossers went
down before the locals last Sunday by a
score of 10 to 20. The visitors, who arrived rather unexpectedly, had a good
dav however iu spite of their defeat, and
left feeling that they would get hack in
earnest in the return game which will be
played lo morrow in New Denver.
The teams were made upas follows:

McNeill    The    < oii-K-rvMlm     Nominee,
The Conservative Convention held in
Revelstoke Inst. Saturday resulted in the
■election of A. II. McNeill as the nomU
nee of the party in (lie Riding.
It was a case of the job hunting the
man, the nomination having been offered to scleral, including Green and
Houston, before Mr McNeill finally a-
greed to stand. What is known in the
Riding ae the Mcintosh wing of the
party was not represented in any force
among tbe delegates and weie not conr-
suited in the choosing of the candidate.
R. F. (irecn M. L. A. was elected
President of ihe Yale-Kootenay-Cariboo
Liberal Conservative Association, which
waa organized at the Convention.
Candidate McNeill, who is little known
locally, is senior member of lhe legal
linn of McNeill k Deacon, of Rossland..
He is very popular in his home city und
is known elsewhere as an honorable and
straightforward man. His candidature
insures a clean aud a strong tight for the
Riding,
Third   I'm-l.t   Not   Amnred.
During the week the third party in the
Riding haa shown considerable activity,
although as far as can be learned no
definite action has been taken fo bring
nn a convention for the bringing out of a
candidate. The various Unions of the
Riding, following the example set hy
Rossland, have'heen passing resolutions
in favor of bringing out a Labor candidate, claiming that be would carry the
constituency. Beinu thoroughly organised, the labor men should be better able
to estimate their strength than the Conservatives cr Liberals.
At the present time its appears to rest
with the Trades and   Labor Council ..f
Nelson to decide just what will be done.*
Making      the       Rounjl*.
Reports from the Boundary announca
that Candidate Galliber is ahead begin
his campaign. He is now making a
tour of the lower part of the Riding, ex»
tending his acquaintanceship and making friends, in which accomplishment all
are willing ta acknowlege his success.
Both i ..iliiher and McNeill have considerable missionary work to do in the
Riding, and will have to work bard if
thoy wish to make a personal canvas.

LEAD OF OKAY COPPER.
James Lyddon, one of Silverton's old
timers, returned on Thursday from n
prospecting trip in the Lardeau country
wheie he has spent the summer. Jim
believes he has got in on a good thing
that he and his partners have discovered
and located at the head of Pole creek
about thirteen miles from the town of
t'nnaplix. It is a group of claims that
tliey have christened tha Three Jim
Group, owing to the christian name of
all three, of the partners being James.
i in one nf the claims which is known as
the Slop-and-rest claim they h«ve
discovered and opened up n line quart/.

Currles a large amount of grey copper
ore. As vet no assays have heen made,
but there can he littlo doubt of ils

CANNOT ARRANGE   THE   MATCH.
In spite of the effort! made by tivo or
three of the most enthusiastic among the
local football players it has been found
'impossible to gather a team to meet the
Nelson players, who are willing to come
up a week from to-day. It is unfoitu-
nate that so ninny of the best players of
the team should be away at the present
time, as this will probably be the last
oppoiliuiity of playing of! the txisting
tie between Silveiton and Nelson.

A   PROPHECY.
RINK MATTERS DORMANT.
That proposed meeting to bring np the
'den of building a rink in Silverion is
yet uncalled. Has the idea died in its
infancy ?
HE   WAS   NO   TELEPHONE.
A certain Silverton lady and her blunt
and perhapsungallant spouse were walking down Lake Avenue one evening th is
week. A knot of loiterers was gathered
on one coiner, discussing some matter
of interest, probably politics, who drew
aside to allow the husband and  wife to] We'll see tha', (air ideal
When tbe statesman  isn't thinking
How to tax the widow's  crust
Or how lo hand his country
To a broker or a  trust.

The Brotherhood of  Ulan.

pass through the gathering. Something
in their manner or their presence proved
irritating to the ladv, who, ilia tone sufficiently loud' for all to hear, began to
dilate to her companion upon the boor-
ishness ot men in general and Silverton
n;en in particular—all plainly intended
for those on the corner.
Now possibly this husband had had
similar experiences and had prepared
himself for such an occassion, or perhaps
it was inspiration. At auy rale, before
he. had gone many feet, he drew a deep
breath and interrupted ns follows: "If
you are sneaking to me, my dear, I will
i admit it all and take the rest for granted,
hut if you nre speaking to these men,
please don't do so through me. I am no
telephone."
And as they passed on down the street
a swinging skirt showed that the wearer
was wrathy still.
At the Vancouver mine, wl.icll is one
of Silverton's oldest and (dso the steadiest
producing mine in the district, work is
being pushed on the long cross-cut
tunnel. This tunnel will tap the ledge
about 200 feet deeper than any of the
old workings and is now in 1811 feet.
This when completed, will he the longest
tunnel of its kind in Ihe district. It is
being put in 6 x 7 feet clear if the timbers and is ns prettv a piece of Workmanship as can be seen iu the Province,
Foreman Barker having every reason to
be proud of his work. Only 12 men nro
now employed at the mine, but when
the   new   tunnel   nnd   connections  are
 npleted a   full   force   will nt once be
put on.    So fur this year the Vancouver

ishment of Chinese officials responsible for ths outrages upon foreign-
erf, as a precedent to peace negotiations, has brought the Chinese
trouble to an acute crisis as far as
the I'nited States government is
concerned.
This is  based  upon  the belief in
official circles that the Chinese government cannot accept   the German
proposition,  so  that it  is   now for
1 the    United   States    government
either to  withdraw   its  forces from
China immediately  or   to join Germany  and   England    and   perhaps I
some others of the  allied powers in
a prolonged war on China.

Wu, called at the state department.
Assistant Secretary Adee then
went to the White House to communicate to the president the substance of the conversation he had
had with the two diplomats, and to
assist in the consideration of Germany's note.
The belief is growing that if the
United States is forced to a speedy
decision as to the German proposition, it may resort to direct negotiations with the Chinese government and having settled its scores
with that government, withdraw
from China.

parents and seniors taught so carefully by Confucianism will Le lost to

Houston, Sept. 15.—Inquiries as
to the loss of life and property
continue to pour in. There have
been already handled on the Galveston island and along the bay shores
of the mainland opposite the island
about four thousand corpses. The
long stretch of debris along the
beach and the western portion of
the island has not yet been beard
from. The prairies of the mainland
over which the waters rushed have
also theit tales to tell. It may be
said after investigation that a conservative estimate of the loss of life
in Galveston is 6500.
The names of thousands of victims will never be known. As to
the property it is hard to make an
estimate. Col. Lowes estimates of
$15,000,000 to $20,000,000 is conservative.

PLAN FOR COMMISSION.
The plan for the creation of an international commission lor the settlement of disputed points between
the powers and China is again causing a good deal of discussion. It
has been suggested that one reason
for favoring such a scheme is that
no other seems practicable. The
controversy over the withdrawal of
the allied troops shows not so much
the difficulty of dealing with China,
but of dealing with one another.
Each power is naturally anxious to
secure the best results for herself,
and each is naturally anxious to
form such a combination with the
others as will bring this about. It
is pointed out that if a commission
were created it would be judicial as
well as international, each member
in a sense representing not only his
own nation but all the others, including China. The success or efficiency of such a tribunal would of
course depend largely upon the selections made by the several nations, and by the attitude of the
commissioners themselves in endeavoring to have all matters settled
upon a fair and equitable basis
ruther than to contend for a special
stdvnntage for their respective nationalities.

000,000 in exports and imports.
New Orleans, Sept. i4.-Colonel
Polk, genera) manager of the Santa
Fe, has received reports that every
station house, freight depot and
water tank on the line between Virginia Point and Rosenberg Junction,
60 miles north, was either blown
away or wrecked, aud miles of track
washed away. All the towns between these two points were severely damaged by the cyclone, and
each had a death list of from five to
fifteen people, with many more or
less injured.
Prominent ship brokers place the
loss to foreign shipping in the port
at $500,000 to $700,000.
Along the Water Front
The pilings and portions of the
floor at the wharf is all that is left
of Galveston's miles ot water front.
Part of the south wall of the jetties
is gone, and rocks as large as rooms
are piled into the channel, making
it exceedingly hazardous tor ships
to come in. There are 30 craft of
all sizes piled high and dry on the
beach, The water averaged a
depth of five feet over the entire
ibbnd, The slip of water at the
point of Tremont street could be
crossed by stepping on the dead
bodies of human beings and animals.
On Tuesday an ordinance was
passed authorizing rescuing and
burying parties to set fire to wrecked buildings. On these funeral
pyres hundred of corpses were cremated. Fifty thieves, mostly
negroes, were shot Tuesday and
Wednesday morning.
Paaaed Through the Storm,
Washington, Sept. 14.—The secretary of the treasury reports that

The lighthouse board has ordered

Tralu Caught. 1
New Orleans, Sept. 14.—Eighty-
five lives were lost on the Gulf &
Inter-State train which left Beaumont early Saturday morning for
Bolivar Point, after having connections with the Southern Pacific train
which left this city Friday night.
The train reached Bolivar about
noon and all preparations were made
to run the train on the ferry boat
preparatory to crossing the bay.
The wind blew so swiftly, however,
that the ferry could not make a
landing and the conductor of the
train, after allowing it to stand on
the track for a few minutes, started
to back it toward Beaumont. The
wind increased so rapidly coming in
from the open sea that soon the
water had reached a level with tne
bottom of the seats within the cars.
It was then that some of the passengers sought safety in the nearby
lighthouse.

AMERICAN POLITICS.
Cubans to imitate the high ideals of
American politics, and says: "It is
to be hoped that the Cubans will
profit by this advice. If they feel
tempted to adopt a lower standard
of action, let them look at politics
in the United States, where boss
rule isjiinknown and where partisanship never influences a voter's" ac
tion! Let them gaze on that spectacle of that good and pure man,
Richard Croker, warning the youth
of his country against the political
dangers of his time, and selling out
his ice stock merely because people
were growing inquisitive how he
got it! Let them observe the calm
and judicious political utterances of
an Altgeld or a Debs, Let them
note the senators from Louisana,
with lofty and ideal motives, holding up tariff bills until ihe sugar interests are protected; and let them
gaze with respectful awe upon the
philanthropic efforts of the sugar
trust to frame a proper tariff for
Porto Rico. If the Cubans cannot
learn pure politics from these incidents, can they ever learn anything."
A NEW VICTORY
Gen. French's Cavalry Occupies Barberton.
The   Boston Advertiser  ridicules
the advices given by Gen. Wood to
London, Sept, 15.—Lord Roberts reports to the war office under
date of Machadodorp, September
14, as follows:
"French occupied Barberton yesterday with the cavalry, which he
took across the mountains. He
met slight opposition, the enemy
being completely surprised. Twenty-three officers and 59 men who
were taken prisoners were released,
and 43 locomotives and other rolling stock captursd. The former
will relieve us of great difficulty as
we had to put up wilh a few rickety
engines.
"French reports that he has sufficient supplies for three weeks for
his force and horses. One hundred
Boers with many mausers and a
quantity of ammunition captured.
There are large quantities of cattle
and sheep in the country, which is
good news.
"French intercepted large convoys, showing that Barberton is
used as a depot of supplies for the
Boers in the south and southeast.
The bulk of" French's force is still
35 miles behind the cavalry, owing
to the difficulty of getting the wagons over the pass leading to Barberton."

that all Canadians ofthe first Canadian contingent who do not wish
to serve after Oct. 15 would be sent
home by special transport if there
were many, and if not, then by
transport to Kngland with invalids.

IS TIRED OF WAR
The Long List of Dead Causes
Anxiety.
London, Sept. 15.—When a clear
cut issue is again discernable in the
confusion surrounding the Chinese
difficulty there may be a re-awakening of real interest, but at present
China holds quite a secondary place
in the public mind in England. The
parliamentary campaign is in full
swing, but Lord Salisbury has not
yet taken the country into his cpn-
fidence as to the balloting day, and
the consequent uncertainty gives
the stump speaking that is going on
an academic tinge. So Great Britain, lacking a more interesting topic, has returned to the consideration
of the war in South Africa.
The Death Hate
It is said that the newspapers are
eagerly scanned for signs of the real
end of the campaign, as Great Britain is tired of the carnage. President Kruger's dramatic retreat has
led the commentators to re-announce
the ckse of the war, but the long
lists of casualties and deaths in hospitals, aggregating 200 a week,
which continue to fill up the bulletin boards at the war office, cause
anxiety. Claims which have hitherto
been made that the British losses in
South Africa have been small as
compared withjfother^ campaigns,
appear to need revision, judging
from recent calculations made by a
well-known actuary, who finds that
of the officers in South Africa 72.1
per thousand have been killed or
have died of'wounds, and 30.6 per
thousandjhave died from disease,
while of the men 19 per thousand
have been killed or died from
wounds and 31.8 have died from
disease.
These startling statistics not only
illustrate that while the officers and
men have suffered approximately
equally from disease, the risks of
the officers in action have been
hugely disproportionate, and also
that the rate mortality in South
Africa is much greater than it was
in the Franco-German war.
Kruger's Wealth.
Kruger's millions are the subject
of long narratives of dispraise. The
lowest estimate of his wealth is
one million pounds, invested abroad,
while some speculators figure his
wealth at five million pounds.
The Transvaal government is supposed to have two br three million
pounds in continental banks, which
will be hoarded by the managing
committee, Dr. Lydes says, for a
future rising when England is in
other difficulties.
More   Railways.
The next few days will probably
see the completion of plans lor the
construction and consolidation of
a system of 120 miles of suburban
lines connecting Manchester. Liverpool, Bolton and a score of smaller
towns in the most populous district
of Northern England. This project
is in the hands of Messrs. Thomas
and Albert Johnson of New Vork.
The   Britiah   Anibaaaador.
As the period to which Lord Salisbury has extended Lord nanncc-
lote's service as British ambassador
at Washington expires in a few
months, there are many conjectures
as to who will succeed him. Sir
Henry Howard, who has been British minister at the Hague and Lux-
emberg since 1896, and who is described in tbis connection as "a
straightforward diplomatist, just
such a character as Americans like
to deal with," is rather more often
mentioned than others.

Ottawn.Sept.lv—Mails from South

allion C. M. I., and Lieut. Col

Evansand Lessard give thcrespec-

tor the number of Canadians who

The  Fire  tsoli
Toronto, Sept., 15.—The insurance losses by fire in Paris a few
days ago, will total  $129,155.
PORTO RICAN  TRADE.
A recently published statement of
Germany's trade with Porto Rico
has accentuated the discussion
of the tariff the United States is establishing the«-e. Berlin advices are
tc llu; etteci that German exports to
Porto Rico was increased in the last
year by over $1,000,000, while her
imports from that island increased
only $100,000.
If Porto Rico were not an exporter ot sugar, it might be supposed
that most of the increase was German sugar, but this is incredible.
In fact, Porto Rico complains that
her market foi sugar has been cut
off. Still the people of the island
have bought more goods than during the preceding year.
HE MAY GO BACK
Kruger May Return and Gen*
Botha Continue Struggle.
New Vork, Sept. 14.—A London
dispatch says:
"The flight of President Kruger
to Lorenzo Marques may enable
Gen. Botha to open negotiations
with Gen. Buller and bring the w.ir
to an end. President Kruger, however, may return to Kumatipoort,
or, if he stays at Lorenzo Marques,
Botha may continue the struggle,
dividing his forces into small bands.
All conjectures based on Kruger's
arrival in neutral territory are premature, since the door through
which he is reported to have retired
from the Transvaal remains open.
If General French has occupied
Barberton and the Britis! columns
are advancing on Kumatipoc _., the
door may be closed «ithin a week
and Botha released from all obligations to keep his burghers in
the field.
Helpleaa Without a Neutral Ha*r.
"If the British government had
allowed President Kruger to purchase Delagoa bay when he was
anxious to do so he would not now
have a place of refuge in the present
emergency, nor would his presence
there be a source of any uncertainty respecting the possibility of his
return to the Transvaal. The purchase of that neutral base io years
ago would probably have prevented
the outbreak of war, since the
Boers have depended from the outset upon having the door open for
their own gold to go out and for
supplies to come in,.and also upon
having a bridge for retreat when
they were hi the last ditch.
i-.iiw-i on i'oiiiii-B.
"The political effect of the reports of President Kruger's retreat
from the Transvaal has been instantaneous. Rumors of the dissolution of parliament at an earlier date
than previous reports have indicated
are already in the air."
