several thousand dollars. The owners have beenTworking on them for
many years, having unlimited faith
in llieir worth, being sine that ultimately they wen- bound to bo sought
after by capitalists.
If this rich corporation commences
operations ou Palmer mountain, its
advent will mark a new era in the
mining industry of the district, and
in connection with the extensive workings of the big Palmer mountain
tunnel, the Golden Zone company on
Mount Chapaca, and numerous other
companies now actively engaged in
developing their properties, will prove
to the world that the sobriquet, "the
Comstock of Washington," applied to
Palmer mountain by our late state
geologist, is not misapplied, and capital will be anxious to invest in this
rich district.

British   Columbia.
OCCUPATION OF   CUBA.
Loudon, Sept. 29.���Tho London correspondent of the Birmingham Post
learns that nothing will be dono by the
government iu the matter of the
French occupation of Fashoda until
Lord Cromer, the British diplomatic
agent in Egypt, who left hero on Monday, arrives in Cairo, whero the first
stage of the negotiations will be
carried on. The French ministry, apparently, desires to rem ive the arena
of discussiou a.' far is possible from
Pans. In Paris, it is considered necessary, in diplomatic circles, that the
Egyptian question should be sifted to
the bottom and a modus vivendi established in order to reach an equitable
and logical solution.
The Chornicle says it fears that
while Englishmen aud Frenchmen ure
speculating at the outcome of the
Fashoda affair, there is little left to
speculate about. The contingency of
Major Marchaud's arrival was anticipated aud provided against weeks
ago. and everything has since passed
exactly as was arranged. There is
nothing in British or Egyptian law to
prevent Marchaud from displaying
the tri-colored flag so long as he refrains from hostility, for the presence
of the flag is as destitute of international meaning as would be the British flag flying from au English ship at
Paris. The real significance of the
situation is that the French placed
themselves in a difficult position from
which Great Britain has every desire
to assist in extricating them. Great
Britain will not allow armed reinforcements to reach Major Marchand,
whose return will accordingly be a
niere matter of time. When France has
aocepted the inevitable at Fashoda,
it is probable that Great. Britain will
assent to the neutralization of the Nile
from its mouth to the lakes, thus extending the principle on which the international status of the Suez canal
was established.
MARCHAND NOT ABANDONED.
Paris, Sept. 29.���Le Gaulois quotes
the minister for the provinces as paying that there is nothing in the attitude of the government that could
suggest a foundation for the stories
current of the government's abandonment of Major Marchand, whoso'x-
pedition is now at Fashoda. No steps
will be taken in any direction, the.
minister is reported as saying, until
Mnrohand reports his arrival and in
tho meantime, tho existing orders for
the guidance of tho expedition will
not be modi fled.
EXTENDING   ITS SPHERE.'

Loomis, Wash., Sept. 29.���During
the past month this camp has been
visited by 'many mining men, show-
iug an increasing interest iu the niiucs
of the Palmer Mountain district.
One1 of the most notable of these visitors was Frank Oliver, representing
the British America Corporation. Mr.
Oliver spent several days looking over
various properties on Palmor mountain, among them the Leadville and
BunWr Hill groups, and it is reported
that these two properties have been
bonded in the interest of the Euglish
corporation. Both of these groups
have been considerably developed and
are undoubtedly among the best propositions on the mountain. In the past
a good deal of rich ore has been taken
out of these mines, one shipment of
about two tons made  in 1888 netting

THE VOTE IN NELSON.
The vote ou the prohibition plebiscite was taken yesterday for the Nelson polling division in the registrar's
office in the court house by Returning
Officer John A. Turner and F. Vi.
Swanell, acting poll clerk. The vote
polled was v?ry small in comparison
to tho number of voters on the list
aud when counted were 129 against
and 107 in favor of prohibition. Very
little interest was taken iu the vote
either by the temperance people or the
licensed victuallers' association. At the
recent provincial election 468 votes
were polled and although every man
whose name was on the list at the late
election was entitled to vote, very
few over one-half of the electors exorcised their franchise on the prohibition question.
At the polling station everything
went along smoothly and although
there wero two scrutiuers ou the prohibition sido and none on tho other
side not a vote was challenged. About
40 men presented themselves as voters
but as their names were not on the
provincial list tlieir votes were refused. J. L. Reid and J. Parr acted
as scrutineers for tho local temperance
lodge.

An Alleged Murderess From
Bridgeport-
SHE WAS AT MONTREAL
But Escaped  on at  Ooean Steamer  to
Liverpool and is Now Known to be
Hidden in London.
Montreal, Sept. 29.���Chief of detectives Carpenter, has settled beyond
any doubt the question of the identity
of tho woman who sailed from this
port ou the Vancouver on Saturday
the 17th iustaut, under the name of
Mrs. Wilbur. It was Mrs. Nancy
Guilford,wanted at Bridgeport, Conn.,
for killing Emma Gill. While some
people thought that Mrs. Wilbur and
Mrs. Guilford were one and the same
person, there was nothing positively
known until now. Mr. Carpenter received a photograph ot Mrs. Guilford
last evening and it was identified beyond the slightest question as that of
the woman who was here on Friday
the 16th. She purchased a second
class passage on the Vancouver at 6:30
p. m., and later in the evening went
on board. She is known to be in Loudon. 	
GOT BACK POOR.
Mother of   tho  Princess of Wales   and
Other Royal Personages.
Copenhagen, Sept. 29.���The queen
of Denmark died at 5 :40 this morning.
The queen, who wns nearly 80 years
old, earned for herself an enviable
record in state and domestic affairs.
She was known as the "queen
mother" of Europe, so many of her
sous and daughters marrying into tho
reigning families. She was Princess
Louise of Hi'sse-Cnssol.when the futuro
king of Denmark married her. He
was duko of Schleswig-Holstein-
Sonderburg-Gluckaburg, aud succeeded
to the throne of Denmark by virtue of
treaty and the law of tho Danish sue-
ccsio'n on the death of his kinsman,
Frederick VII, in 1868.
A   Number   of    Prospectors    Return
From Kotzebue Sound.
San Francisco, Sept. 99.���The whaling bark Northern Light arrived today
from Kotzebue sound with 23 passeng-
ers, prospectors who have been making what appears to have been a vain
search for wealth. Many of them are
disguted with the hardships of life in
the far north. Soon after the vessel
left this city on her northward trip it
was discovered holes had been bored
in her bow, but the resulting leak was
soon stopped. Charles Gleaves, son of
the surveyor general of this state, who
came down on the vessel, tells of five
men of the bark Mermaid who essayed
the trip from the Kowak river to St.
Michaels in an open boat. The party
was seeu on tbe river and five days
after the boat was found on the beach
with a board knocked out of the bottom and the oars afterwards drifted in
at different points along the inlet.
Nothing more was seen of the occupants and it is supposed they were
drowned.
There are 1500 people in Koteuzbe,
all well provisioned for a two year's
prospecting trip, and Mate Tilton of
the Northern Light makes the prediction that out of the number not more
than 75 will return this fall. Tilton is
the man who tramped over the ice to
bring the world news from the imprisoned fleet of whalers.

Preparations   Being   Pushed  for
Opeuing of the Exhibition.
Vancouver, Sept. 29.���New Westminster is acitvely preparing for he
provincial exhibition, which will be
held from October 5 to 18,as originally
advertised with only one or two small
alterations Hotels aro being rushed to
completion, aud the Queen's has now
been opened. The new Colonial will
be ready iu time and will be able to
accommodate 100 guests. The depot is
to be two and a half storv building.
It is estimated that fully #80,000 in
cash has been received by the relief
committee, whilo the loss to the citizens was over |2,000,000.
The most serious difficulty is the
scarcity of houses and it is feared
that there will be distress in the
winter. A number of property owners
are about to build where houses
wero wiped out by the fire, but even
then there will not bo sufficient
residences.

Yesterday a very large number of
voters throughout tho Dominion declared in favor of prohibiting the
manufacture and sale of intoxicating
drink. The returns as yet are incomplete and it is impossible to tell the
exact figures of the vote,but it is quite
evident that the victory is a decided
one for the prohibitionists. The
maritime provinces gave sweeping majorities andTit is believed that Manitoba will follow suit. In Ontario it is
probable that the popular vote was
largely ou the side of prohibition, and
British Columbia may be placed in the
same column. Full returns have not
yet been had from Manitoba ami the
North West Territories, but Quebec
went strongly againsst the proposal.
How far the figures given, and the report is very imperfect, show a majority of the full electoral vote cannot
now be told. The totals in every
district and county wiil have to be
gone over and compared before this
can be known. But the result justifies
the prohibitionists iu demanding the
legislation which was promised them
should it be shown that a majority of
the people were in favor of it. Tlie
country is governed on the principle
that the majority rules and turn the
authorities at Ottawa will lace tliis
new issue of thoir own creating remains to be seen. There is a long
aud bitter struggle before them and
the end cannot be foretold.
Those who do not believe in prohibition will have to bow to the verdict.
It is said that both sides were apathetic but it does not appear lhat the
advocates and adherents of tlie prohibition causo were so. They seem to have
been up and doing all along the line,
and if their opponents were indifferent aud lost upon that account, tlieir
indifference may prove a very serious
matter for them. Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
who is personally opposed to prohibition, has intimated that legislation
would follow the popular verdict
should it prove in favor of prohibition.
Party spirit runs high iu Canada and
all mauuer of tactics are recognized in
party warfare. It may be true that
conservatives threw their weight iu
favor of'prohibition to embarrass the
Iianrier government. Be this as it
may, tho conservatives as well as the
Liberals iu the house will have to
show where they stand on this question
and it will he as embarrassing to the
one as to the other. Perhaps the prohibitionists will make the mistake of
forming themselves into a party instead of standing between tho two,
getting the best terms they can from
either and pressing tlieir success to
liual truimph, but whatever they do
there are anxious times ahead for the
politicians.
ROUTE TO THK OMENIOA.
That the Edmonton route to the
Klondike' can in any way compare tn
the Ashcroft route so far as obliterated
trails and impassable country are concerned is doubtful. There are two

M. Des Brisay & Co., Nelson,
They Nearly all  Come  From  Outside

There has been a good deal of com- j
ment iu town lately about the number of cases of typhoid fever now being
treated in Nelson. Accordingly a
Miner reporter yesterday interviewed
tlie various doctors with a view to as-
certainiug how far the city itself is
responsible for them.
Drs. La Ban & Forin stated that,
iuclnding the two hospitals under
their charge and their private practice
they were now treating fifty or sixty
typhoid patients, of these only two
were local cases.
Dr. Arthur said he now had under
his care some eight cases, of which
only one, that of Mr. Curtis, was a
local one.
" Dr. Symonds had had a large number of typhoid cases this summer,
though at present, he was only treating
two patients suffering from this disease. So far no local cases had come
under his personal notice.
Dr. Hall said that ho now had 25
cases of typhoid fever under his care,
of which only four wore local.
i'lie unanimous testimony of the
doctors was that these outside cases
camo from 'the railway construction
camps on tho Crow's Nest railway
and tho Robsou-Pcnticton extension,
comparatively few patients being
drawn from outlying mining camps.

STAYMER VS. HALL MINES
TWO FINE BRICK BLOCKS.
An Important Case Occupies
the Whole Day.
IS STILL BEING ARGUED
An Application for Bail-An Injunction
Eefused���Hall   Mines    Case
Left Unfinished.
When the court met yesterday morning at 11 a. m., Mr. A. M. Johnson
made application for hail on bohnlf of
the prisoner in the case of Resina vs.
Philli s, which has been adjourned
until next assizes. The prisoner had
been out on bail since the preliminary
hearing until his arraignment at the
assizes which have just closed,
After same discussion Mr. Elliot, on
behalf of the crown, agreed to accept
Mr. Phillips, father of the accused, in
110.000 bonds, and four approved sureties in |3500 each. Mr. Frank Fletcher
of this city is one of the sureties, and
the other three names accepted are
those of prominent Fast Kootenay
gentlemen. Mr. Phillips returns to
Fast. Kootenay today to obtain Iheir
signatures.
An application was then made by
W. A. Macdonald, Q. O., on behalf of
the merchants Hank of Halifax for an
injunction to restrain Mr. Houston
and others from cutting their logs.
The affiants alleged that they hail advanced moneys for the purchase of certain logs, retaining a lien thereon, and
that these logs up to the time of T.
XV. (tray's assignment were retained
within" a separate boom, hut that the
boom had since been broken and the
defendants were Bawing lhe logs indiscriminately with those covered by
tlie defendants mortgage.
Mr. Justice Irving declined to grant
an injunction restraining the defendant from sawing logs. He could tind
no precedent for such a course. If the
plaintiff's property was being damaged
as alleged, the proper course was to
enter au actiou for damages. Mr. E.
V. Bodwell appeared for the defendants.
STAYMER VS. HALL MINES.
Iu this case, which was tried before
a special jury, the plaintiff was suing
under tho provisions of the Employer's
Liability act for damages in respect of
injuries received by him while working iu the mine. The defense alleged
contributory negligence ou the part of
the plaintiff.
It appears that on January 26 tho
plaint ifl was employed in the 120 font
level as a "mucker" aud trammer.
The plaintiff stated in evidence that
he was employed on the day in question shovelling ore froni a .small chute
into cars, aud then (tumping thein into
a largo chute. In obedience to orders
from Pat Nicholls, the sli ifl hiss,
he wont up to the second floor of the
level to deliver some orders to two
meu working there. He then deoided
to go to tho top of tho small -chute,
wliich was blocked, and clear it. To
get thero he had to cross the mouth of
a winze by means of some flooring
whieh was there for tho purpose. Both
he and the shift boss had crossed that
way before.
The witness claimed that the flooring was uo longer thero or was defective, and he fell down tho wTiuze, sustaining severe injurios iucluding a
fraetui'od scull and a broken wrist.
The witness further stated that there
was no electric light at that place aud
iio guard rails.
When tho court rose at 6 p. in., evidence was still being taken, and the
' case will be   continued this morning.
Macdouald & Johnston appeared for
the plaintiff, and Bowes and Senkler
for the Hall Mines.
An   Account   of   the   Beer  Block  on
Baker and Josephine Streets.
The Beer Bros., liave nearly completed their new block ou Baker street
adjoining J. Dover's jewellery store.
It is a fine substantial red brick buildings with a frontage of 50 feet, and a
depth of 75 feet. It has a stono basement, aud is fitted throughout with
the latest improvements in the way of
water and light facilities.
On the ground floor there are two
stores, of which the eastern oue has
heen leased to Lillie Bros., and the
other to Mr. DesBrisay. Upstairs the
bnildiug is subdivided into office
suites, some of which have been already bespoken. The front of the stores
will be plate glass.
The block on Josephine street is of
equally substantial aud complete construction, though the internal division
of the building is different.
The stores belonging to W.F. Teetzel,
the Nelson Hani ware company, and
Fred Irviuo & Co., which run back to
the alley, will each occupy a largo basement in the new block, thus considerably increasing the capacity of their
respective establishments.
Tho block will also contain three
Stores facing on Josephine street, with
eight otliees upstairs, all having outside light.    The   frame building  ���u-
piod by Mr. Teetzel has been remodelled, and a new roof put on, while a
contract has been let to lace the three
stores above mentioned witb plate
glass.
Mr. Ewarl, thc architect, designed
the building, and the construction
work has lieen done-Wider his supervision.
It is thus evident that eastern cap
ital i.s willing to take its chances in
the rapidly improving town of Nelson.

mi
The Legislature Cannot be Dissolved Nor
the Electi-ms Held Until a Lieut-
Gov.   is   Appoint"!!
Regina, N. W. T., Sept. 20.���Tho
Booretary oil state lias decided that
tinder the existing law an administrator cannot act when there is uo
lieutenant govornor. Neither Ihe N.
W. T. act nor the British North America act provides for such an emergency
as the death of a lieutenant governor.
It will be remembered thai Mr. Mackintosh, though living in British Columbia, was induced to remain lieuteuanl
governor in order that Judge Richard-
son could act as administrator. Tho
territories, therefore, are now without
either a lieutenant governor or an administrator and all communications
are taken charge of unopened by the
territorial secretary. Minister Ross,
Of course, the legislature cannot le
dissolved nor, consequently, the elec
tion take place until a new lieutenant
governor is appointed. It is believed,
however, that to avoid this great inconvenience - and the deadlock that
must rosult "from the delay the appointment will he made with all possible despatch.
