Within the past few days certain
things have come to light tha*. arc
placing tlie Grit candidate and his
supporters In a peculiar and erabar
rasslng position before the electorate,
especially In regard to their professed
friendship for Labor. John McKane,
the Tory candidate, has resurrected
a petition that YV. A. Galliher Bigned
against theeight hour law. Galliher
at first denied it, but the charge has
since been proven against him to the
hilt, nnd it has cost him scores of
votes throughout the district. A. L.
Sifton, one ofthe principal Grit spielers, has also liecn proven to have act
ed in direct opp-sition to the Labor
cause.   Galllhcr's petition reads thus:
Nelson, B.C., April l, 1899.
To the Hon. .Minister ol .Mines, Victoria, B.C.:
Sir.—We,the. undersigned business
men of Nelson, respectfully beg to
ask you, as our representative, to do
everything in your power to prevent
the disaster which we foresee to us
and the district in which wearr interested, through the enforcement of
the legislation passed at tho last session of the legislature affecting the
hours of underground labor in metalliferous mines.
Prom our intercourse with miners
in the neighborhood of the town, we
are convinced that thoy havo been
■atistied with tho wages that they
have been earning and   with  their
labor; and from our knowledge ofthe
conditions, we believe that they are
better oh" than   the  miners   of the
United States, from where many of
them have come to better their*circumstances hero.    Wi* have invested
our money in this place and have
it iked much on its growth and prosperity, from the increased working ol
present mines and the d ivi lopment
uf now Ones; and if, as we believe to
bo the case, the interference of the
free right of contract of employer and
employee is persisted hi, we anticipate i hat pn sent operations will be
greatly reduced, and that the open
ing of new mines and the development of the country generally will
receive a heavy blow from the frightening   away   of capital,   which   is
known to be ver>  timorous whore
there is danger ol  labor troubles.
The rcsultswhich weanticipate would
be sn ruinous to us, win Be business is
dependent upon the prosperity and
i growth ofthe mining Industry and
[ to the district as u whole, that wo
cannot too stn ngly urge upon you to
leave nothing undone, or to take any
action, however strong, or unusunl,
to prevent any Interference with the
state of things which Ins hitherto existed hero with regard to the relations  between   employer   and  em*

KniTou Drills
Sir,—You have doubtless learned
through the press that a movement
has been begun for the establishment
of a Chamber of Mines for Southern
British Columbia, and tothatertd a
provisional organization has been
effected by the friends of tin-movement. We are endeavoring to get
every mining and milling company,
mining men, merchants and others in
the whole district to join in the
moVement. Yi'e think, the time is
most opportune for it, and if all those
interested in mining will do so, we
are certain it will give a great impetus to the mining, milling and
smelting industries of the district and
cause a large amount of capital to be
invested in mines and kindred industries. In the course of two weeks
a general meeting (of which due notice will be given) of all those who
have already joined the movement
and those who signify their intention
to do so, will be held, when a permanent organization will be made,
officers elected, the membership fee
fixed, and all other matters looking
to making the Chamber of Mines a
useful channel for the dissemination
of news relating to the mining industry of the district and be the means
of attracting large amount of capital
for investment in it. Yours trulv,
J B. MoAUTHUR, President.

Shipments this week are confined
solely to the Arlington, which has
advanced into the front rank,passing
the 1,000-ton mark and the Enterprise at tho same time. One hundred
tons in all were exported, averaging
close to a carload a day. A great
deal of ore is being broken down at
the mine, keeping four teaniB busy
■in hauling it away. The fresh fall

Mr. J. C. Holden, president of
the Ames Holden company, who
recently returned to Montreal after

the world, concluded an interview
in the Montreal Ga/ette by stating:
"Two things in particular are
making Canada more widely known
and more highly considered the
world over. First her part in the
war, which has excited interest not
only in England, but in every   part
of the globe; secondly, the widespread advertisements of the C. P.

he found the pamphlets of the
great railroad. He found them in
Russia, in Norway, in Turkey.
When the P. and O. steamship
reached Hong Kong all the passengers wished if possible to go on by
the Empress boals; for, after experience of the ships of many lines
and many nations, Mr. Holden
declares them unsurpassed for ccm-
fort, table and attendance. Eveu

Duluth, Minn., Nov. 24.—Arrangements are now being completed for the construction of
steel ships on the lakes, on a large
scale for ocean service. These
ships will not be limited in
size      to   the     length ol     the
new canal locke.but will be built at
any length wanted by buyers. Six
or seven large and completely
equipped yards on the lakes are in
the scheme. The large ship builders have now drawn plans for ships
of from 350 to 650 feet in length,
but of no greater width than 43
feet, which they have submitted to
ocean ship owners. They have also submitted their designs to the
bureau of navagation and it has approved them. Tbe plan is to build
in sections, ships of a greater
length than the present locks will
carry, join them together in the
ship yard, and run them down the
great lakes to Montreal and then
put them together. The hulls will
be built complete at the lake yards
with a bulkhead at both sides of
the centre line. The space at the
centre between the* bulkheads will

R. P. Pettipiece, of the Lardeau
Kagle.JFerguson, in speaking of the
Lardeau district's progress this season Mr. Pettipiece said: "There
has been more active development,
more money expended, and more
ore blocked out than all the previous years'together. The Nettie T.
has awarded a. contract to Craig &
Hellman to get out 1500 tons of
ore this winter. The Silver Cup,
will ship from 200 to 500 tons. The
Triune's 120 ton shipment of $300
ore will reach Trail inside of two
weeks. Work is being pushed . in
the Old Gold camp, over $150,000
having been "*pent in development
there this season. The Metropolitan, Sunset, St. Klmo, Brow, Surprise and others are working all
winter, while a good deal of placer
mining is being done near Ferguson on Lardeau creek. The Nettie
T. will work fifty men all winter.
A party of fourteen C. P. R. surveyors are now cross-seciioning
and re-locating their line into Ferguson*, and in all probability the
head of Kootenay lake will be
crossed with Arrowhead by this
time next year. President Shaughnessy has definitely promised the
Lardeau road for next season. In

It must be extremely gratifying
to those who have taken up the organization of the Chamber of Mines
for Southern British Columbia to
find that their earnest efforts in this
direction are meeting with so good
a success all through the Kootenays

by the committee seems to have
very favorably impressed the resi-

hearty co-operation in the scheme is
no longer a matter of doubt.
For the important position of
permanent secretary for lhe new organization -the only paid official—
a very large number of applications

from widely different points, It is
the intention, we understand, lo

Marseilles. Nov. 23.—Ex-President Kruger landed here at 10
o'clock this morning from the
steamer Gelderland.
The Krencli GreOtiUKi
Marseilles, Nov. 23—The weather
was beautiful and the Boer leader
received a magnificent demonstration. He appeared to be in good
health and repeatedly took off his
hat In acknowledging the acclamations of the people.
What   Kruger  Siiiil.
Replying to the addresses of welcome of the presidents of the Paris
and Marseilles committees J Mr.
Kruger spoke in Dutch *and in a
low voice, but he accompanied his
words with energetic movements of
his hat, which hejield jn his right
hand. After thanking the committees for the warmth of the reception accorded him and^ expressing
gratitude for the sympathy he had
received from the French government, he spoke of the war as being terrible and barbarously conducted by the British. He said, "I
have fought with savages, hut
tbe present war is even worse. We
will never surrender, we are determined to fight to the last extremity
and if the republics of tbe Transvaal and tbe Orange Free State
lose their independence it will be
because they have lost every man
and child."
The Gelderland was sighted several miles out at 8 o'clock in the
morning and Dr. Leyds and Messrs.
Fischer and Wessels, an interpreter
and Mr. Van llammcl, immediately
proceeded to tbe Dutch warship in
a steam launch and soon afterwards
boarded her. A conference of the
Boer leaders ensued. The Gelderland remained behind the island of
the Chateau d'lf, when she steamed
into the outer harbor, firing a salute
of twenty-one guns to which a
shore battery replied.
Mr. Kruger cannot but be elated
at the warmth   of his   reception  bv
the people oi Marseilles today.
Prom the moment the white, twelve-
oared barge left the side of the
Gelderland with ex-President Kruger
sitting in her stern, surrounded by
the Boer representatives, the storm
of cheering never ceased until he
entered his hotel. The fighting
declaration which Mr. Kruger made
at the landing stage dispelled at
once any impression that he might
accept a compromise trom the British government. His announcement
was greeted with a roar of cheers
and cries of "vive Kruger," "vive
les Boers," "vive la libertv." He
repeated the sentiment from the
hotel balcony, where, replying to
the storm ol acclamations from the
solid block of thousands of people,
Mr. Kruger said the reception given
him today would do much to sooth
the wounds of his heart. The
Boer, he said, would never sacrifice their freedom. They would
rather be exterminated to the last

returning in April, lie will not be

All sorts of rumors arc current
about the jocky club investigation
into Lord Durham's charges against Lester Reifl among which is the
allegation that a well known sportsman bribed jockeys with large
amounts, during the past season,
with large profits. Whatever the
truth of the charges, it is certain
that the investigation has developed into a far largor scope than
when it commenced and now involves grave issues, in which English as well as American jockeys
and owners are concerned.

Brussels, Nov. 21. In the chamber of deputies yesterday the Socialists made an attack on the government in connection with the recent extradition trom Prance of Si-
pidio, the youth who attempted to
assassinate the Prince of Wales in

Vandervelde, the Socialist leader in

extradition was illegal and that it

prompted thereto by a desire to pro

M. Vanderheuvel, minister ol

that Sipidio had been surrendered

New York,   Nov. 23,—American
dispatches, says the Tribune's London correspondent, indicate that
the Chinese situation is regarded
more seriously in Washington than
it is in London. The theory that the
British government will join tier-
many in impossible demands on
China is not supported by the fact
as understood in diplomatic circles
in the British capital.
The two powers are working together, but clearly the British government will not persist in demanding an impossibility when the interests ofthe mercantile community in
England require the restoration of
the normal trade relations with
China at the earliest possible date.
Premature action by the United
States government in withdrawing
from negotiations will retard that
settlement. Tbe Herald bas a

was received  here   last    night   of
the holding up oi    the    Iron    Cannon   Ball     passenger   train, northbound at GirTord Ark, a   few   miles
this side of Melvern Junction.    The
hold    up  occured   at   7:30  o'clock
and was brought about   by   half  a
dozen men.    The bandits had   built
a huge   bonfire on   the  track,   undoubtedly   figuring   that   it   would
cause  the    engineer   to bring     the
train to a standstill.   He,   however,
scenting    an    attempted   tobbery,
opened the   trottle and  sought   to
rush their fiery  obstacle.      Several
burning ties caught in the pilot   and
I soon brought the train   to a   standstill.     Instantly three   masked  men
ordertd the   engineer   and   fireman
to leave the engine   at  once.      Another robber   went   on   lhe   side   ot
the car, hailed   the  conductor   and
ordered      hi in   to   remain    inside.
Each   older   was  obeyed.      While
the    four   robbers   were   standing
guard and occasionally tiring a shot
to frighten the passenger, their two
accomplices     entered   the   express
car and ordered messenger   Samuel
Havory to "step   aside   or  get  in
the corner."    The   large   safe   was
charged five times   with   dynamite,
each explosion   making   a   terrible
noise tnd   tearing   off  portions   oi
lhe car.    A large   bole   was   bored
in the door ofthe safe, but   an   entrance could not   be   effected.     The
robbers finally announced that they
