Apiiilnitlon for a Crown Ornnt to the
Arlington No. 1 Fraction. Latter Allege* Fraud.
Another Interesting mining suit
from this locality came before thc
assizo courts at Nelson on Tuesday,
being that of Manley vs. Collom. It
affects the title to tho ground lying
between the Arlington and Burlington claims, which is covered by the
Native Silver and Arlington No. 1
fractions. The plaintiff asserts that
be purchased a half interest in the
Native Silver fraction, and that defendant, or bis agents, restaked the
ground as the Arlington No. 1 fraction while the former was a valid and
existing location. Plaintiff asked to
have his location declared good, n
decree setting aside the Arlington
No. 1, and nn injunction restraining
defendant from proceeding in his application fop a certificate of improvements. The defendant claims that
the Native Silver was located in a
manner contrary to section 32 ofthe
Mineral Act; that the lands upon
which the Native Silver was located
were within the limits of thc Arlington. Defendant also asserts that the
alleged transfer by John Halpin, the
locator of the Native Silver, to C. A.
Haller, from whom plaintiff purchased Ins half interest, was part of a
fraudulent and illegal scheme by
Ilallor, Halpin, and Robert Cooper,
president of the Arlington Mining
Company, to evade the provisions ol
tho Mineral Act.

Party holding a monster meeting in

decidedly sympathetic, so much so
in fact that when a vote w. s taken
later on in support of Chris Foley's
candidature, every man in tho ball
rose to hi i feet in favor of it. It was
the most unanimous public gathering
ever held here and gave a practical
illustration of the strength of Labor's
cause in this vicinity.
J. A. Foley was tlie chairman and
he introduced, in a few apt words, the
several speakers, who spoke in the
following order: Chris Foley, the
candidate; James Wilks, of Nelson:
las. Baker and Al. Teeter, of this
town. All the speeches were direct
and instructive, appealing strongly
to thu hearers. Lack of space foil ids
any extended notice of Chris Foley's
remarks, which occupied an hour,
but he carried convincing weight in
his arguments. His speech was, in
thc main, the embodiment of the addresses delivered at Nelson and at
Rossland. He claimed all men were
equal and just legislation should be
enacted for all. Labor was in the
vast majority in the c untry and it
had a right to organization, social
and political. Strong reasons were
adduced for the formation of thc Independent Labor Party, for which
victory was predicted at thc polls.
The Conservatives and Liberals were
roundly scored for their sinsofomis
sion and commission regarding labor,
and red hot shot was poured into
monopolies, Asiatic immigration and
the Alien Labor Law.
The speeches of Messrs. Wilks,
Baker and Teeter were congratulatory and strongly in support of Mr.
Foley. It was a bouncer meeting,
winding up with rousing cheers for
the labor candidato.

This week there has been a drop
in the shipmonts from the division,
due to the fact that the Arlington has
been crowding work upon the new
railway switch and ore chutes. Much
has been accomplished and a few
days more will get things into fine
shape. The product from the mine,
can then be handled more expedi-
tiously and economically. Wet wea-
thor is also having its effect, as the
loads arc becoming sloppy. Forty
ions was shipped out by the Arlington and 20 by thc Enterprise. Ore
from tho Bondholder is coming down,
too, there being half a carload now
at the dock, It is a light article, but
high grade. Tlie Two Friends is inclined to wait till tho snow flies ere
sending down more ore.

Lew   Houck   Worked   the   Sleeve
Game—Action to Recover
On Stock.
Nelson, Oct, 10.—The case of
Henley vs. Reco Mining company,
which was set down yesterday for
trial at the assizes will be one of the
most interesting actions ever tried
in this district says the Tribune.
The suit arises out ol a poker
game in which J, M. Harris, president ol thc Reco, was fleeced to a
finish by Lew llouck, one of thc
cleverest card sharpers who ever
came west. Thc case is robbed of
some interest by the fact that
llouck is dead, ll is asserted that
he worked the "Montana sleeve"
game at Sandon, and in the approaching trial the defence will
produce the evidence of the tailor
who made the sleeve. Houck's
ability to palm cards is evidenced
by the fact that Harris bad 110 suspicion he was getting the double
cross until some time later when he
learned of. Houck's identity. In
the meantime he settled his debt
to the sharper in Reco shares,
llouck sold the shares and the purchaser is bringing the action to
(impel the Reco people to honoi
die transfer.
The story of thc game at Sandon
is worth telling. A Spokane business man had visited thc Slocan
metropolis and played poker for
high stakes. He lost, and j. M,
Harris got the big end of the game
When the Spokane man arrived
he secured a tip on Lew llouck, and
put up a deal with the famous sharp
to secure revenge on Harris. Thev
went to Sandon and worked the
job smoothly. Harris lost $1000 in
cash and several I. 0, I'.'s at one
sitting, and between $2500 anil
S300 in cash and a block of Reci
stock in another. Then the visitors
pulled out, and when Harris became informed oi the proposition he
had gone against ii notice was
posted repudiating the stock certificates,

Grand Rapids, Mich., Oct. 12.—■
P. Louter Wessels, special commissioner of the South African Republic to the United Suites yesterday received u letter from Secretary
De Bruyan, of the Boer envoys,
now in Holland, containing the first
reliable and definite information oi
the plans oi ex President Kruger
that has been made public. The letter
states that ex-President Kruger will
leave Delagoa bay on tbe Netherlands warship Gelderland in a few
days, lie will be taken to Holland
where the envoys are awaiting him.
In regard to the intimation in British newspapers that English warships might be sent in pursuit, Mr.
Wessels says that any such action
by Great Britain would be accepted
by the Neitherlands as a direct declaration or war and the little Dutch
nation would act accordingly.
Ex-President Kruger bears a
commission from tbe Boer republic,
but exactly what it is, not even the
envoys oi the Boers know. They
suppose, however, that it will endeavor to secure intervention by one
or all oi the European powers to
the end that the individuality of the
republics shall not be annihilated.
Mr. Wessels stated that the reports
of huge numbers of Boers immigrating to America were unfounded.
He said: "You need not be surprised if there is a rebellion of ihe
whole of South Africa before the
year is out. The only reason the
Capo Colonists did not join us nt
the outset was because they had no
arms and neither they nor we expected war and   were   unprepared."

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19th, 1900.
Through the Slocan at least it is
-not a question of who is the strongest
of the three candidates, but rather
(the size of Foley's majority.   It will
be in the hundreds.
Capital has rights as well as labor,
and no true workman will seek to
belittle the factor that provides re
munerative employment for himself
and peace and contentment in his
Tiomc. Justico to all should ever be
the watchword of our legislators,
This truly has been a week of
thanksgiving for labor. The coal
,-fltrikors in Pennsylvania won a big
• victory; the Ymir mine, at Ymir, has
■adopted the Union scale; the Tories
.will support Putteo 'n Winnipeg;
.nndlast.butnotleast.Ci.ris Foley has
ibeen here/and ho proved himself
.equal to his reputation.
C. E. Smitheringale has purchased
•K. T. Lowery's interest in The Slogan Drill, and will  pound tlie ma
.-chine alone in the future.   If he will
lop off thc extension to his name and
.call it plain Smith, the brethren will
be thankful.—Cranbrook Herald.
Can't do it, sonny; it's one ofthe
imposed conditions of existence. Besides, the governor's got tlie blame
thing copyrighted.
Labor should feel honored by the
-great attentions being paid its organ-
• izations by public men at present. It
,has become a power in the land and
many are they who aro falling over
-themselves to prove their warm at-
itachment for the hardy sons of toil.
But labor, particularly in British
-Columbia,can think nnd act for itself,
. and the affiliated organizations will
.demonstrate their influence ncxr
Union men owe it to themselves to
m ssist and protect one another,   This
: is shown in tbe adoption of the Union
label to be placed upon the product
.of their hands. The label is the
badge and certificate of honest toil,
fair wages nnd skilled workmen.   It
-is never found on shoddy goods.
How necessary it is, therefore, that
.that thc preachers of unionism practice what they preach. Don't be
content with any old thing. Insist
upon having Union label goods
everywhere and upon all occasions.
Compulsory arbitration in this
.country is rapidly Hearing the goal
of practical accomplishment. Ne*v
Zealand has shown how it operates
there, by having no labor troubles in
.fourteen years. Our American con-
sins have been inquiring into the
matter and they have come to the
conclusion that it is a good thing,and
soon will have a similar measure on
their statute books. Agitation here
/on the subject has made many converts in its favor since June last and
our people would welcome its adop
British Columbia will be to Canada
what New Zealand is to Australasia.
It will be the arena wherein the
practical precepts and principles of
•modern socialism will bo promulgated and demonstrated. Each year
witnesses some new departure in public affairs along the lines of social democracy, and in no instance have
they been found detrimental to the
well-being of the country. New
Zealand furnishes a good example
(to our legislators and people, and is
providing the ideas of an education
,on the elevating influence of socialism
,that is proceeding apace. British
Columbia is pre-eminently the land
of labor, and it is meet nnd right
that the toiler should have legislation
to ameliorate his condition. In this
respect our province is looked upon
as the leader in the Dominion nnd,
though the youngest In the confederation, it bids fair to soon becoming
the sturdiest in direct and beneficial
legislation. Workingmcn owe it to
themselves to seo to it that their votes
are cast right in thc coming election.
