Array EXIT TURNER.
Hon. RtWt Beavens Entrusted With
lie forming of a Ministry
MINIM  NOTES   OF   INTEREST.
Tl* Prospector*   Abroad   In   the
l.uml- Mocan City Notes.
Ir. Turner, after being twice practi-
coW requested to resign by Ills Honor
tn Lieutenant-Governor, was dismissed
ly hia Honor from office on the morning
d the 8th.  inst.   Lieutenant-Governor
llclnnis, sent for ex-Premier  Beaven,
;if Victoria, and requested him to form a
/Ministry.   Mr.   Beaven assumed  the
responsibility and has called to a confer.
ence Joseph Martin, Semlin and other
recognized   leaders of the Opprwithn
and the names ol the new ministry will
bo officially proclaimed at once.
This step comes as a suprise to most,
but nndei the circumstances, seeing that
Mr, Turner would not voluntarily resign
after his party had been defeated at the
polls, there waa no other course left
but this, for His Honor to pursue. There
nro plenty ol precedents in the political
history of Canada for this step.
The dismissal of Mr. Turner is of couree
satisfactory to the Oppositionists but the
choice of Mr, Beaven as leader by the
L'entenant-Governor does not meet wilh
their uuquaiified approval. Joe Martin,
who on Tuosday met Mr. Boaven, has
refused to ento r his Cabinet and speaking of the Opposition 8aid later: "They
will consider tlmt they are quite competent to olect their own leader, and will
not be content to accept Mr. Beaven or
any other person not chosen bv them."
Continuing Mr. Martin said that the
Opposition would be in harmony in their
choice and that a Jo ader would bave been
chosen already if a full caucus had been
held.
AT  THE   L. H.   MINE?
The cross-cut tunnel gn the L.H.mine
w still being driven ahead and the
average ol the whole face is $26 in gold
Per ton, selected pieces can bo obtained
that will assay up into the pictures, but
in speaking of an average we mean Hie
whole bulk of the matter exposed, good
and bad all thrown together. This ore
will concentrate twelve tons into one,
which would give $300. concentrates.
The L. H. ledge is one of the largest in
tlie Province being 60 feet wide and
traceable for some distance. The ore is
an iron sulphide and all the values are
contained in and carried by the iron, it
makes it one ol tbe best and easiest concentrating ores known.
EMILY   EDITH   SHIPMENT.
Ore is now boinu brought down Irom
the Emily Kdith mine for'shipment, und
it-sill be a steady shipper from now nn.
Thc oro lieing shipped is of high undo,
and will no doubt net the owner* handsome profits. A, P. McDonah', of iiil-
verton, has tlie contract of delivering the
ore at the dork. Under (lie careful
management this mine lias received, it
has grown from a mere prospect into a
shipping mine, within the lust slghl
months.
A UNIQUE RAFFLE.
Tbe Grand Raffle, for the Thistlo
Hotel property furnished complete, that
is to be pulled off in Silverton on October
2_nd, is the biggest event of tbo kind
that has ever been billed in the Kootenay.
Tom Clair the present owner and proprietor, has concluded todispose of this
property in a grand free-for-all raffle.
Owing to his health having failed him
he is not able to carry on and properly
look after the business, and as he has a
host of friends among tlio working men
of Kootenay, he concluded to give
every one of them a fair chance to step
into a well established hotel and
business, in one of tho best growing
towns of this section. The Thistle Hotel
of Silverton is well located, thoroughly
built anil has a completoset of furnishings, having cost the present owner over
$5000, A chance at this raffle is better
than a freo ticket to tho Klondyke and
the chances of winning out are equally
as good. William Hunter of Silverton
will act as receiver of all monies collected
from tlie sale of tickets and under his
auspices a fair and impartial drawing is
assured. Whotheluckv man will he
that will step into a well established
business and home, and to whom Mr.
Clair will hand the keys as the future
proprietor of the Thistle Hotel, will be
definitely known Immediately after the
drawing on Oct. 22nd.

SILVER'S OUTLOOK
The Indian Commission will publish
their report belore the first of September
and the silver problem will bo dealt
with. Bemi-offloal information has been
given out that the Indian mints will he

early date. An effort will be made to
have the ratio changed from 18 to 1 to 22
to 1, and it Is asserted that both tho
United States and France have expressed their willingness to accept this change
The effect will be to increase the presont
price ol silver to 93.82 cents, but to

Hugh Sutherland, made public the
statement, iu Slocan City, that ho would
have twenty men at work on the Evening
Star before the end of the month.
Assessment work will be commenced
ou tbe Santiago claim nest week. This
claim lies opposite the ore-house of the
Comstock mine and has a fine surface
showing.
The Ln9Vegas claim, another of Silverton's gold properties, gives promise of
liecouiing a rich mine. Three assays
taken from the paystreak gave averago
returns of $2000, per ton.
In tlie Kanowno gold diggings in

A strike of eighteen inches of clean
ore was made recently ou tho Canadian
group. The strike wus made in a tunnel
driven through the Canadian ground
by the Adami B.C. Company who are
tunneling to tap their own ground. The
Canadian group will continue to ship oro
from now on.
Chas. Martin, Jack Smith, Joe Streit
and G. Fairbairn have just returned

A striko of some importance was made
last week on the Eclipse claim, adjoining
the California group on Silver mountain.
This property Is owned by J. H. Cory of

Warm weather is with us again and
creates a desire among our people to flee
into the mountain to find the refreshing
coolness in the atmosphere and the cool,
pure water, that is so desirable in hot
weather and which is unobtainable else'
where. And while this hot weather
call forth descriptive language too emphatic for ordinary use, it no doubt has
a verv beneficial effect in turning peoples
thoughts to the eternal hills, where nature's mineral treasures lie buried and a?
a result rich strikes appear to be tlie order of tho day and mining enterprises
are shaping themselves in a manner that
looks encouraging and causes the pros-
-lector and mine owner to look forward
with joy to the time when he will be
able to count bis shekels by thousands.
The Alexander owners have let a contract for siukiog an additional 130 feet on
their ledge. They have just completed
the first 60 feet, which shows up two feet
of galena in the bottom of the shaft.
Tbo B. C. Gold Field Co. are asking
tenders for 150 feet of tunnelling to tap
the ledge at a lower level, This property is showing up excellently and has
already yielded many tons of ore, which
is on the dump awaiting the arrival of
their milling plant. This plant will be
brought in as soon as the road is completed from Kootenay Lake. Tbe road
is now in couree of construction and the
saw-mill plant is in transit by packtrain
over the trail from Kootenay Lako. It Is
to be placed in position and operations
commenced soon.
Messrs. Hicks and Barber, owners of
tho Transfer mine in Dayton Basin, have
opened up a four foot ledge of ore, carrying galena, black sulphides and native
silver. The owners feel considerably
elated over their find, and with good reason as it bids fair to become a valuable
producor from tho grass roots.
Messrs. Mulvey and Clements are
pushing work on the Calumet and Hecla
also in tho Dayton Basin. This claim
bas a very large ledge carrying galena
which appears well adapted for concentration. The owners are driving a tunnel
to tap the ledge at a groater depth.

MORE TROUBLE IN THE LE ROI.
Another Sensational More lis the
Le Roi Conflict—The licpubllc Ont
of Debt nnd Hesidr for Dividend*
—New Town uf Kellar—MIiiIiik
Notes nnd Brief*.
There was a new La Roi sensation last
week. The B. A. C. hiri-shed it. The
minority would not accede to the wishes
of the parties who hod lately acquired
contiol of a majority of the stock, and
the managers of the big syndicate applied to the court at Rossland for an injunction taking control of the property
out of tlie hands of the trustees, who
were working at cross purposes wjth the
Rossland syndicate and placing it in the
hands of W. A. Carlyle, who was appointed by the court to take charge of tlie
mine.
The regular monthly meeting of Hie Le
Roi trustees was held last Tuesday evening. Tlie gentlemen were unanimous in
asserting after tlie session was over that
nothing had been done. "We just met
and adjourned," they said.
In a strictly purliaiueiitary sense, thc
meeting did nothing, and thereby hangs
a tale. Judge Heyburn was present at
the meeting aa tlie legal representative of
the British American corporation which
bought the Peyton interests a few weeks
since. At his suggestion a motion was
introduced providing for the appointment
of W. A. Carlyle, the chief engineer for
the B. A. C, as manager of the mine.
It was understood that this was done at
the request of tlie holders of the majority
of the stock. Tlie motion was made by
members of the Peyton faction, who are
still on the board, notwithstanding they
have disposed of their holdings in the
company. Colonel Turner was in the
chair, and he ruled the motion out of order. A row ensued, and the threat was
made to put the motion and carry without regard to the man in the chair. There
were votes enough to do it, but one of
the muscular members of the minority
asserted just at this juncture that he
would throw the first man out of the window who undertook such a step. It is
said that the threat caused Judge Heyburn to smile. At any rate it had its
effect with the members of the board,
and ttie meeting adjourned at once without further ceremony.'
That was not the end of the mutter.
The Wednesday morning train took Judge
Heyburn to Rossland, and within a few
bours after his arrival he obtained
through * Canadian court the thing
which he could not obtain from tlie board
of directors, while Colonel Turner presided. Judge Spinks granted the injunction prayed for, and at a late hour the
sheriff accompanied representatives of
the B. A. C. to the mine, and placed W.
A. Carlyle in control of the property.
Woodbury  Creek- Trull.
. Among atj*a,. Bjflnx_ jflUuniflB-1***- t°
roads and" trails being" madeby the government this year in the Kootenays, none
will give more general satisfaction to
those interested than tbe trail now in
course of construction up Woodbury
creek. Thia stream empties into Kootenay lake from the west about 12 miles
below Kaslo and three miles above Ain-i-
worth, and has some exceedingly promising claims located all along its tributaries up to the headwaters of tlie
creek. The work now going on has been
in progress about four weeks and will
take two or three weeks longer to complete, when the facilities for getting in
and out of this rich mineral section will
be greatly improved.
The trail building is being done under
a veteran in this section, who has 12 men
employed on the work. It is being constructed in a thorough manner, on a
wagon road grade, and will extend about
13 miles up the creek. In many places
there has been much rock work, but that
■mrt is pretty well done and the balance
i* plain sailing.
One of the first results of the building
of this important artery is a shipment of
a carload of high grade galena ore now
being made from the Pontine and Tecum-
**_ mines on this .'creek. These are the
properties on which L. A. Neowden spent
some $20,000 lost winter and then abaa-
doned, and in which the original owners,
to whom it reverted, afterwards struck
it rich. The present shipment is the llrst
one made from.Uie property and is for a
smelter test.
New Town of Kellnr.
The young busy mining camp on the
San Poil in the recently organized mining district i*V finally definitely named.
It is called Kellnr in honor of the lint
merchant who opened a general store in
the place. A variety of names have been
suggested but it is said to be definitely
settled by the people most interested, the
inhabitants of the camp itself, that Kel
lar is the proper name. B. K. Short has
been in that vicinity since June 21, was
one of the sooners, in fact, though he had
not so extended an experience dodging
Indian police as had some of the Spokane
men who spent weary, weeks waiting for
congress to act and •M-'Kiniey io sign.
"We have a busy, little camp," said Mr.
Short. "We hive ^Criree general stores
and more coming and'Several other lines
of business ore represented. Application
has been made for tbe establishment of a
postoflice. There is prospect that the
town will have to move, however. It is
located on the flat by the river, on both
sides of the stream, in fact. There was
a townsite boom there shortly after the
reservation was opened and town lots
were stalled for a mile and a half along
the stream. Unfortunately this waa on
an Indian's ranch and I understand tliat
Major Anderson has said that he intend*.
to oust the squatters. If that is the case
the town will have to move to the benches above tbe flat.

San Francisco, Aug. 8.—Tlie Hawaiian
commission made up of Senators Cullom
and Morgan und Representative Hitt, has
arrived in this city and will take |mssugo
for Honolulu on the Mariposa sailing
Wednesday.
There is one other great question which
Senator Morgan hopes to see taken up
and settled next winter when congress
meets. This is the Nicaraguan canal, and
he believes thut this congress should at
its next session pass tho bill now before
thc senate providing for the construction
of the canal.   He says:
"The republican party is committed to
it, and it is a thoroughly American policy, lt can be built for $00,000,000,
though I placed tho estimates in my bill
at $115,000,000, so that no one could
criticise it as underestimated. The Nicaragua canal would have been built long
ago but for the opposition of those who
are more English than American, and
who were ready to help England secure
a partnership in the construction und the
control of the canal.
"There is a new bill before congress
now, and new light on the whole proposition is before the country, 'Ilie Nicaragua canal commission u ill make a report
Showing the practicability of the proposition and the commercial necessity for
the construction of the canal. The war
und the great voyage of the Oregon, with
tlie anxiety of the whole nation over the
safety of the inagnifiicent battleship, have
already demonstrated the absolute need
of the (-anal in time of war, and President
MciKuley will recommend it in his next
.message to congress.
"I believe the Nicaragua canal will be
built and built by American capital. It
is now necessary to bring together the
different parts of our possissions and to
connect the Atlantic seaboard with t-he
Pacific and with Hawaii. Thc commerce
of thc world demands the construction ii
this great waterway. Holding Puerto
Rico in the Curibliean sea and a protectorate over Cuba, this nation would be
craven to allow any other power to have
any |wrt or interest in the control of t'he
canal."
It is believed that Senator Morgan's
hill making the canal a government project will lie passed during the coming session. The navy department is intensely
interested in the canal. Arguments ire
being prepared by the experts of the de-
pai'tincnt now for submission to congress.

Madrid, Aug. 8.—Evening.—Tlie cabinet today approved the basis of the
peace conditions proposed by the United
States. Duke Almodovar del Rio, the
minister of foreign affairs, is churged with
revising tlie reply, which will be read and
approved at the cabinet council tomorrow
morning, it is stated on good authority
that the Spanish reply will give no occasion for a further response from the
United States.
Washington, Aug. 6.—Spain's answer to
the American demands was not received
hy the French ambassador up to midnight tonight. M. Cumbon and his staff,
who had been awaiting it through the
evening, at that hour were convinced that
it'would not arrive before tomorrow and
the ambassador retired nnd his stuff went
to their homes.
The Knsllsh Version.
London, Aug. 0.—The Madrid correspondent of the Sunday Times says:
Spain's answer will accept all the
American terms except that regarding the
Cuban debt. Tlie government will fight
this point on the ground thut in all other cessions of territory by one nation to
another the ceded territory has carried
with it its own debt or the propori.on belonging to the nation by wuicn it is
ceded.
President McKinley will receive the answer on Monday or Tuesday. Senor Sagasta, in conference with politicians and
generals, follows the example of Senor
Castelar in 1H73. His objects are twofold—to provide the respull-iibilily for the
decision und to avoid the convocation of
the cortcs.

The news from Puerto Rico is received
with grcut disappointment. The Spaniards are disgusted with the welcome the
natives have given the Americans end
thc news that the volunteers have thrown
their arms down.
The general opinion is that it is not
worth while to risk lives and spend millions for the sake of territories which arc
worse than disloyal to the mother country. It is assumed that there will be no
international trouble over the evacuation
of the West Indies. Tlie wur has lost

It is quite long and in cipher. The trans-
la tion begun at once, but it will take
Moine time to complete the work.
At 3:30 o'clock the Spuui-.li reply was
still arriving at the French embassy,
The fourth section having just been received.
Paris, Aug. 8.—'Ilie Spanish ambassador this morning presented to the bVnch
minister of foreign utTuirs Spain's reply
to the peace terms of the United States,
which wus subsequently cabled to Washington.
Five  Translation*.
Washington, Aug. 8.—Spain's answer
to the demands of thc I'nited States is
now on the way to Washington, but it is
coining with a slowness ulmost painful
in view of the earnest desire lo know
whether  the  acceptance   is  complete   or
qualified.
There are no less than five translations,
four of them in cipher, tn transmission
between Madrid and Washington. After
the Spanish cabinet meeting last night
the response wus minced to a Spanish
cipher und then sent to the Spanish ambassador at Paris, by whom it wus to he
translated into French, ufter which the
ambusHudor would deliver it to the
French foreign ollice to bc reduced to the
French cipher for transmission to the
French ambassador here. These moves
take, it is calculated, eight or ten hours.
The impression prevailed in official
quarters up to midday that the response
would not reach the president until quite
lute today at the best, und more likely
not liefore tomorrow.
The impression is growing in official
quarters that the Spanish answer, while
in the nature of concession of the American demands, is not a brief and simple
acceptance, without reservation or condition. There is no direct official advice
on this point, but all the official advices
from Madrid indicate the response is n
document of considerable length, prepared with laborious care, and it has several features which muy not appear in
the conditions presented by the (Jotted
States.
It is probable the reply will be in the
hands of the government in time for con
sidcrution ut the regular cabinet meeting tomorrow, when t'he sufficiency or insufficiency of the response will Im- determined.

Roosevelt has not hitherto been reported
among the wounded at Santiago, but according to thc statement of a rough rider,
now one of the wounded on Governor's
island, he was slightly hurt by a fhg-
ment,-of Spanish shell during Uie attack
SffT-SiTnluun imr	
"Teddy," said thc rough rider, "was
with four or live other officers just below
thc bi)w of a hill upon which one of
our batteries was plated. A Spanish
shell Hew over tho crest and exploded
just nbove the heads of the group. Two
officers were painfully wounded, but Teddy, with his usual good luck, escaped
with a graze of the buck of his right
hand. Whipping out his handkerchief
he hound it round his bund. A little
Inter, when he wns near our line, he held
up his bandaged hand und exclaimed,
gaylyi 'See here, boys;  I've got it, too.'
"I never saw anybody so anxious to
be in the thick of trouble at Teddy. The
first day the rough riders were held in
reserve Teddy chafed terribly. He kept
layingl 'I wish they would let us start.'
"We all idolize Teddy. He wears a
flannel shirt must of the time and refuses
to fare any belter than his men. Why,
he wouldn't have a shelter tent when
they were distributing them. There is
not one of our fellows who would not
follow Teddy to hades if he ordered us.1'
It is supposed that Colonel Roosevelt's
casualty was regarded as too slight lo
be reported or thnt it was suppressed at
his request, on account of his desire not
to alarm his family and friends by an
appi-iu-.iiicc  in  the list of  wounded.
Secretary   Ihiy   lo   llealKU.

Iloston, Aug. 8.—A Transcript special
from Puerto Rico says:
Of the Sixth Massachusetts officers the
colonel, lieutenant colonel nml the majors
ind three captains resigned. They were
•barged with incoiii|«'tency and lack of
discipline. The troulile in the Sixth Mus-
s-chusetts is partly attributed to the fact
that white officers refuse to return the
salutations  of the negro company. The
trouble no doubt will end in a separation,
which will he in fact a dUliandnient.
San Francisco, Aug. 0.—'lite big transports Scundia und Arizona may sail for
the Philippines by the end of the week
but not before. There is a growing belief that they may not curry so many men
as was ut llrst intended and the beginning of peace negotiations will menu tha
mustering out 6f the majority of the
troops remaining ut cuiiip Merritt and
the Presidio,
• ieneral .Merritt now has with him, or
on the way to Manila, l."i,000 men. Nearly
souo tons of commissary stores will go
on the Scundia nnd Arizona.
The only movements of troops during
the enrly purl of the week will lie the
beginning of their mnrch to the Yosem-
ite of the Utah cavalry and perhaps the
sailing of 1.10 members of the First New
Vork regiment on the Muri*iosu. No arrangements have been perfected yet for
the transportation of the rest of the regiment nnd they ure likely to remain here
for several weeks yet unless more vessels
thnn ure now in sight urc found to tukc
them.
Major General Merriam himself is anxious to get to Honolulu to look over the
hew territory added to his department,
but he statist positively t'hut he will not
leave here until the wny is clear to send
all the troops ordered to snil for Manila.
The 'hoard of survey appointed by (.ieneral King to report on the circumstances
attending the informal issuing of blankets, shoes nnd other clothing by First
Lieutenant I- C. .Smith, regimental quar-
termnster of the Twentieth Kansas regiment, has nude its report.
While Lieutenant Smith is not held
criminally cureless in the conduct of his
office yet the responsibility for the shortage is fastened upon him mid it is recommended that he make good the value
of the lost supplies, which is approximately *700.
A report has been filed by the bourd of
survey appointed by General Merriaiu
finding that 10*24 pairs of shoes issued to
the Tennessee regiment were inferior;
that 1072 Springfield rifles furnished the
same regiment were second bund und
worked over, though serviceable. The
condemnation of 1*277 bayonets, scabbards
and an equal number of cartridge boxes
is recommended.

when they first arrived—south in June
FOUGHT AUGUSTUS FORCES
The health of the squadron at Guaiituu-
umo is fairly good. The sick list numbers
about 3 per cent. The general tone of
health of tlie ship's company has fallen
considerably since the first of July. This
however is not due to the prevalence of
nny disease, but is probably due to tho
release from the strain and constant effort under which they so long lived, and
to this probably more than to any other
cause is due their somewhat impaired
physique. 1 do not think it necessary to
send the murine battalion north. The
crews have borne their privations in a
munncr lieyond praise. Tlie ships' crews
hnve not been nshore in six months nnd

We notice in the Mining Record's
"Answers to correspondents." an answer to "L, A (Brighton, Eng.)" who
inquires about the Galena Mines strike
which was recently heralded abroad by
the press of this section. The publicity gained by this report shows the
immense amount of harm that can be
done to a mining camp by the publication of mining rumots as mining
news by irresponsible newspapers.
This report was first circulated by
a semi-comic mining paper, which had
know logo that the report was not correct, at the lime of publication. The
item was seized upon by the local correspondents of outside mining journal**
and widely spread in their letters
The SiLVEHTONiAN would be the last
to deny any strike in the mines around
Silverton, if the facts justified the report but the strike referred to bad no
foundation except in the imagination
of somo mining(f) reporter who wished

The British Government having
a naturalized subject a former German
by the name of Herr . Scbwaback, as
Bt ilish        conswl *  at   .. P.eelin, a   the
chappies are raising a   big row over
tbe matter, saying lie must be British
born and    bred.   Now   it  is  prima
facie evidence that the Government
bave good and sufficent reasons for the
appointment or it   would  not   have
been made.    Probably his knowledge
of German character and trade makes
him eminently fitted for the  position
and he is no   doubt  better   qualified
than some spendthrift son of an English   Lord,     who    has   nothing   to
recomm.' a 1 him for the position outside
of his family connections.    More than
one great country has found it to   its
aivantage    to    return     naturalized
citizens back  to '„Iieir former homes
ai   representatives  of   their adopted
country.
There are plenty of cases where the
representative was a citizen of the
country be was accredited to, and
such consuls bave invariably given the
best of satisfaction. If, as these
kickers claim, a man should be born
in Great Britain to qualify and entitle
him to hold a position under tlat
government, it looks rather inconsistent, looking at it from a Canadian
point of view, that these same chappies
coming to the colonies expect to be,
and are, prefered in the colonial government appointments.
