Investments In the country will boon
be In the hands of a local company.
Slocan is to have a water and Ugh)
system, but it will not belong to the
people, and many thousands 11 dnl
lars will have to be paid by the town
should tho citizens at any time In the
future seok fo purchase it. The
scheme will be a paying one, and
tho Initial movement on the. part of
the corp iratlon Is an Indication of the
material progress of the town, With
water and light Sloean should pros
per and oiler an additional attraction
for people to settle here. However,
the lovers of municipal ownership are
not at all pleased over tlie affair and
some tall kicking Is being d me. The
opponents of incorporation are daily
growing loss In number.
On Saturday a water right was
slaked on Goat croek, about one mile
and ono-hall from its mouth. .). ('.
Shook, on behalf of the company, has
made application for the use of 500
Inches of water, and the application
will come before the sold commissioner on December 17. It is the intention of the company to flume tin-
water to town and then pipe it along
the various thoroughfares. Electricity will he generated by water power
atthe creek. At present the company is in crude shape, btitwhen the
water right is secured, it will be
properly organized and active steps
taken to instal the service, whii
will eost in the nei
through two lino bodies of galena.
At the. breast, ofthe drift is 20 inches
of ore, rising from the floor about
two foet. This averages 4!) oz in silver and will easily concentrate two

In a summary of the operations in
the. various camps during the past
Season, 1 he Nelson Tribune, on Monday, referred to this division thus:
The district hack of Sloean City has
made splendid progress during the
past year. It, is only necessary to refer t-i the Arlington as a steady ship
per, the bonding ol the Speculator,
Mabou, Tamarac, and other proper
lies to demonstrate this fact. Tho
purchase of tho Hampton group,
above tho Arlington, Is another factor, and tho remarkable value-, ob-
1 linod from a trial shipment of Hamp
tan ore Is likely to stimulate devel*
I ojMiiont further. On the Lemon creek
side of the divide the Kilo aud Chap*
lean (groups aro well known. The
Kilo, with it2-i claims, is very properly regarded as one ofthe greatest
propositions iu the Kootenaya One
thing accomplished by tho Warner
.Miller syndicate, which controls the
Kilo, is that an exceptionally eoo
nnmica'l method of treating the Kilo
ores has been discovered, and this
will doubtless bo followed at an early
date by the construction of a mill.
The Chapleau mill will be on a producing basis before the end of the
year, unless something unforeseen
occurs. Their mill is almost ready
to start work and should lie crushing
ore bv the 1st of December.
from the lower end of the rou'e, work- ]
ing this way, there  being upwards
of a mile of fair  road leading   into
town.   The right, of way  Is being
cleared out wide enough for a wagon
road to he hullt later on. This connection with tho Lemon creek camp
has been long desired and it. will
prove of gnat benefit to the town.
li. F, Green, the local member, has
done well by tho camp this year,
there having been a great, deal of
money spent on roads and trails, al-
fording employment for many men
and opening up the, country In good
shape. lb* deserves credit aud
thanks for his efforts and attention.

turned to Montreal after a two and u

particular are, making Canada more
widely known and mure highly con-
sidered the world over, i irst tin-
war, which has excited interest not
only in England but in every part •:

London, Nov. 21.—The award of
$3,062,800, with interest at five
per cent from June 25, 1889, made
by the arbitrators in the matter of
the seizure of the Delagoa Bay railway by Portugal, will be paid to
the claimants today or tomorrow.
In addition to the principal ofthe
award and the interest thereon,
which makes a total of about $5,-
000,000, Portugal paid $140,000 on
account of the seizure in 1840. The
Portuguese government has deposited security valued at $5,000,-
000 in a London bank in the name
of Ambassador Choaie. A large
proportion of the award goes to the
widow of Colonel McMurdock, an
American, who, with a number of
English capitalists, built the oad
and operated it until the Portuguese
government arbitrarily violated the
concession it had granted and seized
the line.

Lots of Money
Toronto, Nov. 19.—At the annual general meeting of the Canadian Bankers' association Mr.
Clouston, genera! manager of the
Bank of Montreal, in tbe course of
his address referred to the numerous
evidences of the expansion of trade
and commerce in Canada, as shown
by the growth of the note circulation and bank deposits, and by the
immense development of foreign
Referring to the proposed establishment of a mint, he expressed
the opinion that decision to do so
had been arrived at without due
consideration. He feared it would
lead to some disturbance of our currency system. The use of gold instead of notes as daily currency
would Cause heavy loss by abrasion,
and was not appreciated generally.
On the other hand, bankers were
only allowed to hold gold to the extent of 60 per cent of their cash reserves, the remainder being required to be in Dominion notPS. If
banks, on the other hand, exported
gold, which they would doubtless
be driven to do, they would be subject to considerable loss on exchange. There was some profit in
minting silver, but this came to the
Dominion government from England,in any case amounting to $70,-
000 yearly. Minting of gold entailed actual loss.

Fitteen persons are known to

that this number will be largely increased by later reports. Many
houses, including a large number
of negro cabins, were blown down,

says a Washington dispatch to the
Herald. Lord Kitchener's plan
of operations in South Africa, harsh
though it appears to be, appeal s
to officers of the war department,
and during the coming campaign
no mercy is to be extended to the
Filipinos in active rebellion or give
aid and comfort to the insurgents
The administration, according to
a high official, has become weary of
the long drawn out war. It has
been conciliatory in dealing with
the insurgents and the efforts to
accomplish peace by this means
have met with contempt. It is now
proposed to give them a taste of
real war, and though the innocent
may suffer, it is only by this means,
it is believed tbat the guilty may
be punished. When Secretary
Root returns to Washington final
instructions will be cabled to Major
General MacArthur relative to tbe
operations to be conducted, Ag-
uinaldo is believed to be in the
mountains of Benguet.
South African Affair*
New York, Nov. 17.—A London
cable says:
The scene at the reception of the
Colonial troops by the Queen in
Windsor castle yesterday was a
heart stirring one. Men who
marched into St. George's hall,
where her majesty was seated, came
from places very far asunder geographically, but they represented a
unity of the British empire. Many
limped and all were invalids, yet
they looked an exceedingly serviceable body of men. They included
members of the Canadian contingent. The queen asked after the
welfare of the men with true womanly interest and every word of her
graceful little speech was distinctly
heard throughout the fine ball in
which emperors and kings have
been repeatedly entertained.

Fatal  loll.lo,,
Spokane, Nov. 19—A fatal wreck
occurred on the Spokane Falls &
Northern railway two miles south
of Dragoon station. One man was
killed and two others sustained serious injuries.
The train was the regular south
bound freight consisting of eight
cars and a caboose. When at the
point where the tragedy occurred
the rails spread because of the action of the snow and rain under the
ties, and four cars were thrown
down a rather steep grade, The
engine and tender were left on top
of the grade, also ' the remaining
four cars of the train and the caboose.
The four wrecked 'cars contained
sacked lime. In one of these cars
seventeen men were stealing rides.
One ol these, John Klein, was
caught between a pile or wreckage
arid crushed to death. Several
others were pinned down by timbers. Patrick Welch and Richard
Hocking were dragged out later by
the trainmen, and the rest escaped
by a miracle without injury.

fhe temples was discovered near the

by a learned Chinaman, who visited
the ruins at the request of the Mexican government. This Chinaman
made the assertion at the time that
the ruins were those of a temple
which had been erected many centuries ago by the Chinese, but his
statement was not received with
It bas long been claimed that the

yesterday to Avon, N. Y,, where

asked Wm. Bromley to accompany

/Hakes a Statement Regarding English Railways
In China.
New Vork, Nov.' 16.—The British government having called the
attention of Count Lamerdorf to the
manner in which the Russian troops
are holding British railroads in
China, and the English papers having made attacks on Russia, which,
if founded on truth, would place
this country entirely in the wrong,
the following statement has been
made by a Russian officer:
'•Russia," he said, "was the first
to arrive on the scene after the outbreak in the neighborhood ol Pekin.
She found tbe railroai destroyed
and abandoned. It was a question
about which there was no time to
waste or to go and ask the advice
of the English who showed no
anxiety to come and guard their
road. We proceeded forthwith,
using tbe utmost speed, to make repairs, manned it, and placed it iu
ruuning order.
"Did tbe English expect that
after we had expended an extraordinary amount of labor, ■ and after
large money expenditures, we are
going to hand back tbe railway at
their request. Would anyone expect that?
"We had and have no intention
of keeping tbe line, but certainly we
did not propose spending our energy and money for the benefit of the
"We, therefore, held, and are
holding the sections until an estimate of cost has been made out.
As fast as this is done, such sections,
with estimates, will be turned over
to Marshal Count Von Waldersee
lor him to deal with. This is our
plan, and it is a very simple one."
.MacNeill Withdraw!
A. IL MacNeill bas withdrawn
from the contest in Yale-Cariboo
and will be succeeded by John Mc-
Kane in the Conservative interests.
In retiring from the field Mr. MacNeill has given bis reasons in tbe
following letter addressed to the
To the electors "ol Yale-Cariboo:
It is with regret that I find ..myself unable to give that time to the
conduct of the present campaign
that its importance demands. Since
1 was nominated matters have arisen
in connection with my professional
practice that require my attention
to such an extent as'to make it im
possible for me to visit the different
parts of the district as I desired and
originally intended.
Having conferred with the executive of the Yale-Cariboo association
and stated my position to them, it
was agreed that I can honorably,
and while retaining the confidence
of the Liberal-Conservative party,
withdraw from the campaign. I
therefore asked the executive, after
conferring with as many ofthe local
associations as time would permit,
to name a candidate in my/place,
and 1 am happy to inform you that
the Yale-Cariboo executive have
chosen John McKane oi Rossland
as their candidate tu represent the
party at the election to be held on
the 6th of December next.
1 have known Mr, McKane fol
more than 15 years and feel that he
is well qualified in every respect to
be your representative. From his
promitient connection .villi the mining industry he is particularly well
fitted to represent this riding and to
call attention to its many needs. I
hope the friends who have so loyally supported me in this cause
give the same support t'
Kane, and I can assure them they
will never have cause to   regret    it.
Thanking my friends for the
hearty support they have given me,
1 remain,
\'oui's sincerely,

•constitute any denial of the statement made. It acknowledges the
-corn in ono or two instances and
evades the point in the others. There
can be no contradiction of the fact
that the Grits did run candidates in
opposition to the Labor nominees on j turned Wednest
November 7, whom they did their
•level best to overcome. In this riding the Grits have claimed the exclusive right to the Labor vote, because
