In Great Falls Jail With Her
Two Lovers-
Touching Interviews Betwe >n the Impr'a-
oned   Lovers���More   Trouble is
Expected Shortly.
The   Chinese girl   who   was  stolen
froni Lun Foo of Kuskonook has turned
np at Greut  Falls,   Mont., where  she
aud her two Chinese  companions   aro
in jail for entering   tho country without permits.    They   were   arrested  at
Bonuer's  Ferry.    The  girl   gave  her
name to the authorities  of Groat Falls
as  Koo   Wong.   She   is described  as
young and attractive  and A't* has fold
her trouble to  Chief of Poliee  Guerin
of Great Falls, who has taken interest
in her case.    She  says   that  she  was
born in   San   Francisco   of   rich   but
well-meaning paronts. and  about two
years ago they sailed  for China, leav-
��� ing her in the care of Wan Chung, the
Chinese merchant, now of Revelstoke,
B.   C.,   who  claims   that  sho   is  his
wife.    But Wan Chunc.   after he  had
engaged     her      youthful    affections,
proved to be drunken   brute   and,   she
'says, frequently   beat her.   Then  she
wrote to Foug  Siug  aud Joe Wing to
i come up from   Sun Francisco and take
her home, where she could  earn a Hy-
i ing as a seamstress and be  rid  of  the
I hated attentions of Wan Chung.   They
I obeyed her request and  when she was
I arrested at this point they were taking
[her hack to   'Frisjo.     This does  not
I agree with the story Tho Miner picked
Jnp   at   Kuskonook, iu   which   it  was
���shown that   the girl was sold by   Wan
Ichung  of  Revelstoke   to  Lun Foo of
���Kuskonook for $400 aud was afterwards
lstoleu from   him   aud   taken  hy   two
I Chinamen to Bonner's Ferry.
The Great Falls correspondent of the
|Anaconda Standard has the following
(about the girl and her companion :
'Koo Wong is the name of the entrancing fair Chinese maiden who
"languishes at the city jail and between
Imeals coos to her lover, Wong Liee, alias
TiVoug Sing. She is a dainty maiden
(pf 17 years, and though her feet betray
Ifhe fact that she did not rise from the
Imandarin class of her native country,
the passion which bums in her al-
loiond-shaped eyes shows that she is a
Lood thing and that Wong is to be

liide sources, Wong Loe and Joe   Wing

���British   Columbia,   and   without   the
Jjapers which Uncle   Sam   requires  of
���the heathen  Chinee and which permit
liim   to   return   into    this    country.
Irhrough the   summer  they  wandered
Through   the northern couutry seeking
li  location   for    a  laundry.    At  last
Ihey struck the town of Rose Lake, B.

'iad his own  reasons for making  the
littlt.    In his strolls through the   town
lie had espied tho fair slave or wife of
|Vau Chung,   dealer   in  teaB aud Chinese   crockery.    Ho   tarried   aud   his
liartner, Joo Wing,   was overcome by
Wong's importuning and stayed   i.lso.
'Itis   not  necessary   to detail  the
l.vents of  the courtship.    Suffice it to

Jerry  people  who received  his tele-
|xam did not  hesitate to  forward  it
li) this city, where Inspector Ringwald
��x>k hold of the case, and with the aid
' Chief Guerin, landed their prey.
"Koo has  spent the time since  she
linded in  jail in bewailing her  fate,
lud this evening begged   that she  he
brmitted to see her lover, Wong Lee.
The Loss of Life at Present
The   request   was    granted   aud   the
meeting was affecting in the extreme.
'The officials are holding the
heathen until they receive further orders for their disposition. The men
are mortally afraid of what may happen to them, as Wong belongs to a
different Tong, and they fear that if
they are taken across the line death
will he their fate. At first the officers
were inclined to believe that Wong
had abducted Koo by force, but after
the events of today they aro more
inclined to look upon thc affair as a
transplanted love story.''
This also does not agree, with what
The Miner learned ahout the girl.
She was sold and then stolen from her
purchaser, and there is no love story
about it. Wong Hee, who is known
as Foo, the gambler, aud Joe Wing,
who aro with her, took the girl away
from Kuskonook, not from Revelstoke,
or as the Standard calls it Rose lake,
the girl's pronunciation probably being defective.
The fact that all the parties in the
caso are Chinese makes it very difficult, if not impossible, to get at the
true inwardness of the matter, but one
thing stands nut clearly. There will
be trouble yet among the Chinamen
over the willful damsel. This was predicted from the flrst by The Miner
and the Anaconda Standard gives the
following reasons for sharing that belief :
"Whatever may be the true story of
the r-ffair, one thing���is oar-tain,, and
that is the evident brewing of trouble
among the Chiuese Six companies over
tho escape or abduction of the girl.
Chief Guerin, who wag brought up
in San Francisco, aud is more or less
familiar with the working of the
Chinese companies, is positive that
the Chinaman who was here, Wong
Loe or Wong Sing, is a member of one
of thn companies, whom he serves as
a "high binder" detective, hatohet
mau and ward heeler. He wears certain articles which signify his position and other details point to the
same conclusion. The girl and he at
first claimed the relation of father and
daughter, but they have abandoned
that plea and have practically admitted that Wong Lee and Jo Wing
went from San Francisco at some
one's order to effect the release or
abduction of the girl. The fact that
they brought the girl by this route
iinstead of taking her direct to the
coast was probably done because there
are members of the sane tong in
Helena who would assist in concealing
tho flight of the girl.''
In the meantime several Chinese
witnesses, including Lun Foo of Kuskonook from whom the girl was stolen,
are ou their way to Groat Falls, and
interesting developments are expected
at the forthcoming trial.

0.   P.  R.   AND   GRAND TRUNK.
A   Letter    From   Sir  William   Van
Home to Sir Charles Rivers-Wilson.
Toronto, Oot. 15.���Following is a
Toronto Evening Telegram special
cable, dated London, Oct. 15: The
Financial News publishes a letter
from Sir William C. Van Home to Sir
Charles Rivers-Wilson, dated Montreal, September lst, regarding the
rate war. In this it is stated that the
Canadian Pacific railway company
was indisputably the party attacked
as to the North Bay lino dispute, and
the disagreement between the two
roads over the price charged the 0.
P. R. for running rights over the
Northern branch of the G. T. R. The
writer says'the question has no relation whatever to the transcontinental
rate matter. Regarding the use of
tho line, owning the line or making a
shorter road, he insists that no' one
can be permitted to determine the
question for the 0. P. R. The question he continued, is not a subject for
arbitration. The Financial News expresses the opinion that if Sir William
Van Home refuses much longer to arbitrate, there will be a grave suspicion that he is swayed more by personal
feeling than by real regard for the interests of the shareholders of the C. P.
Referring to the same subjeot, the
Financial Times says the C. P. R.
is not so utterly unreasonable 'in its
attitude as would be inferred from
the words uttered by Sir Charles
Rivers-Wilson in his recent speech.

Falmouth, Eng., Oct. 15.���Only 31
survivors reached shore last night from
the wreoked steamer Mohegan, but a
number of others reached land this
morning. One of the 116 passengers
saved this morning is a lady. All the
survivors are in a pitiable condition
and some of them have been badly
injured by waves and rooks and are
Buffering from bruises and torn and
fractured limbs. It is announced
from Port Houstook, Cornwall, that 45
survivors of the Mohegan have been
landed  hy   the   life    savers of that
Elace. Five dead persons have also
een recovered. Fourteen members of
the crew of the Mohegan have been
found alive on the rocks. One of the
survivors, Mr Geo. Maule, of New
York, was interviewed after ho had
sufficiently recovered to be ablo to tell
the story of the wreck. He said:
"I am a shipper of horsos, employed
hy the American Transport company.
We left London on Thursday and ull
went well nntil 7 o'clock yesterday
evoning, when most of the passengers
were at dinner. The steamer was
going at full speed, and suddenly, we
beard a loud crash wbich seemed to
denote we hacf colftded with some object. Just then we rushed on deck
and found that the Mohegan was on
the rocks between tho Manacles and
the Lowlands in the vicinity of the
Lizard. Orders were given immediately to lower the boats. Her captain
stood on the bridge and perfect order
prevailed among the officers and crew.
The steamer, however, immediately
began to settle by the [head. Two
boats were launched and women were
sent away on these boats, but whether
they reached land or not I do not
know. I managed to secure a life
belt and jumned overboard in company
with the chief officer of the Mohegan,
Mr. Couch. He mado me take off
my coat aud shoes. Soon after that
we were parted from each other.
When I was leaving the vessel a little
girl begged pitoously that I try aud
save her, as she did not want to die
yet, but I was ��� powerless to help her.
Eventually I caught hold of a plank
which was floating and I clung to it
for seven hours and a half, when I was
picked up hy a tug. I conld not have
lasted much longer. I cannot explain
how the accident ocourred. Whole
matter is not very clear to me."
From other sources it was learned
that the Mohegan sank about 20 minutes after she ran on the rocks. William Moore seaman, of the Mohegan,
belonging to London, was among the
men who succeeded in reaching port
Houstock. He said the vessel struck
forward on the starboard side of her
how and sank bead first, her stern ris
ing right up in the air. Only the
smokestack and foremast of the Mohegan can now be seen above water.
The reports received as to the sum-
ber of survivors is extremely contradictory, even at this late hour.
New York, Oct. 15.���A. Franklin,
of the Atlantic Transport company,
when seen said. : '' There is no truth
in^the report that the Mohegan boilers
were defective and her condition not
satisfactory. The vessel was in flrst class
condition. We do not believe the ac-
oideut was caused by any defect in
her machinery or boilers.
Loudon, Oot. 15 ���Sad scenes were
witnessed today at the London office
of the Atlantio Transport company, to
which tho wrecked steamer Mohegan
belonged. A numbor of womon
fainted whon the worst news beoame
known. There has been a constant
stream of telegraph boys running to
and from the office seeking information or taking messages to anxious en-
London, Oct. 15.���The officers and
crew of the Mohegan numbered 96 and
of these 33 are known to have been
saved. The body of Mr. H. A. Baxter,
one of the passengers has been recovered. The officers of the steamship
company wore busy until night answering' inquiries. They still hope
that the steamer's boats may have sue
ceeded in saving others of the passengers.
Falmouth, Eng., Oct. 15.���From
the best   evidence  obtainable at  St.
Keverine, it appears that the Mohegan sank five minutes after she
struck tho rocks She was going at full
speed She struck twice, stopped and
rapidly settled into the water As the
captain and the executive officers of
the steamer went down with her, it
has been impossible thus far to ascertain how she got out of her course,
as Falmouth light and the coast were
visible Among the incidents recited
is the escape of the Pembertons.
Mr. Pemberton jumped into a life
boat, his wife threw him their two
children, then she leaped iuto the boat
herself and thus the whole famliy
were saved.
New York, Oct. 15.-F. W. Look-
wood and Mrs. Amedlia Crumbreeht,
whose names appear in the list of the
Mohegan's passengers, are father and
daughter. They reside iu Stamford,
Conn., where Mrs. Lockwood now is.
Nothing has yet been heard of them.
Mr. Lockwood is a wealthy oil merchant and dealer in petroleum at 81
New street, this city.

St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 15.���A
Walker, Minnesota, special to the
Pioneer Press says: The Indians, including two delegates from the hostile
camp, have had their councils with
Commissioner Jones, but it is hard
to see where any positive progress has
been mado. In" one respect the author -
itis probably gained an advantage yes-
erday. The Indians tried to consolidate all collateral questions in one issue. The commissioner declined to allow this and told the Indians very
plainly that if they would get together and agree as to what they
really wanted ho would endeavor to
settle their grievances as satisfactorily
as possible for the majority under the
law, but the men wanted by the mar-
shall must be surrendered without
regard to the other qusetions,

London, Oct. 15 ���William T. Stead,
who is making a tour of the European
capital in behalf of the Daily News,
to ascertain the attitude of the various
countries towards the czar's disarmament, has arrived in St. Petersburg.
From thero he writes that the disheartening suggestions of sceptical
pessimists are unfounded. There is,
he says, no humbug about the proposal. The czar is entirely in earnest. Neither M. de Witte, minister of
finance, nor M. Poliedonostoff, procurator general of the Holy Synod, nor
Count Muravieff, minister of foreign
affairs, was the author of the proposal, which was due to the personal
initiative of the czar. He imposed
his will on his ministers. Mr. Stead
adds "Tho scheme was conceived
in a mind imbued from childhood
with the horror of war and the passion for peace which distinguished
the czar's father. It was fostered
continually by the increasing evidence of the fatuous suicidal policy of
'beggar my neighbor' and found congenial environment in the personal
and domestic entourage of the czar
and was finally launched with the
spendid audacity of youth.''
M. deWitto welcomes the proposal in
the hope of curbing the ever increasing demands of militarism. M.
Poliedonostoff is not enthusiastic over
it. Count Muravieff will do his master's bidding. Mr. Stead concludes
his letter with tho statement that ull
the governments with the exception of
throo or four hnvo responded favorably
to the proposal. Tho roply of the
British government has not yet been
received   iu  St. Petersburg.
Nowspapers  Declared tho Report  was
Pure Invention.
Paris, Oct. 15.���Tho auti-revisionist papers rogard the reported discovery of a military plot against tho
government as being  pure  invention.
The Figaro says it is informed
that tho French generals agree in declaring that their duty is to show
absolute obedience to the government.
The Gaulois classes tho affair as a
"conspiracy without conspirators,"
but in spite of this, the papers which
announced the conspiracy insist upon the exactness of their information.
The Petite Republiquo Francaise case
points out thot thero has been no official denial of the reported  conspiracy.
The Auroro asserts that the government received warning of the plot
from 10 different sources.
The British Authorities Said to he Making

London, Oct. 15.���The weok opened
with an ominous rattling of sabaros over
Fashoda and ended with the rumblings
of a revolutionary volcano in Paris.
The situation arising out of the question between Great Britaiu and France,
as to the right of occupation of Fashoda is extremely grave. Everything
hinges on the nature of the report of
Major Marchand, iiiu French commander at Fashoda, which is now
on its way to Paris from Khartoum,
owing to the courtesy of the British
goyvemment in permitting one of
Marchand's officers to use the British
line of communication.
The evacuation of pashoda by the
Frenoh must, however, take place,
if war between Great Britain and
France is to be averted, as the Marquis
of Salisbury has nailed his colors to
the mast and cannot recede from the
position ho has taken up, aud he has
received the unanimous support of the
country. The clear, strong speeches of
the liberal leaders, Lord Rosebery and
Mr. Herbert Henry Asquith, coming
at this critical moment, were very important in that they demonstrated to
���\Snt> tk.mA -ihfi thr., Hhtnttii jmvty >>*' solidly with tho government in the
stand the latter has taken on the Soudan
The Speaker, the organ of the liberal
party, this woek refeis plainly to the
impossibility of relinquishing the
British claims and points out that if
it comes to war, it will not be merely
for Fashoda, but for the maintenance
of Great Britain's placo in the world,
plus her undoubted rights. The moderate thinking section of the French
press is earnestly urging a peaceful arrangement of tho affair. Tho paper
candidly admit that France is no
match for Great Britain in the event
of war. There has been a great deal
of talk here about* the possibility of
war with Frauce, and various preparations upon the part of the British
goverment fare reported to have been
made. For instance, it is announced
that a leading small arms firm at Birmingham was asked this week whether
it was prepared to turn out 1000 magazine rifles weekly. The significance of
tbis will he appreciated when it is
pointed out that the British government works aro alone capable of turning out 4000 magazine rifles weekly.
Paris, Oct. 15.���The Figaro discusses
at some length the speech delivered by
Lord Rosebery at an agricultural dinner at Epsom on Wednesday and analyzes the liberal leader's utterances
critically. It regards the speech as a
blunder and accuses Lord Rosebery of
talking like a politician and not like
a statesman.

terday by tho confession of Edward

If the fact that the Northport smelter is situated in Northport, in the
state of Washington, should vitiate the
sale of the Le Roi prop erty so that the
B. A. C. cannot possess what it purchased, it will be high time to take
action looking to the protection of cit-
iens of the province. British subjects
here enjoy no privileges that are not
given freely to Americans. They con
prospect and stake mining properties
and own and work them without ques
tion, all that is required of them being
compliance with the regulations iu
this respect. In the neighboring state
of Washington such privileges are denied to Canadians. They can prospect
if they wish, but they cannot stake or
own mining property by right of dis-
oovery. They can, however, by declaring their intention of becoming citizens of the United States and forswearing their allegiauce to the Queen
and oountry, buy claims and own them
by purchase. Under their interpretation of the law, the minority stockholders of the Le Roi hold that the B.
A. C. has no legal status in Washington state and that it cannot possess the
Northport smelter. If this be so and
British capitalists are in this way deprived of what thoy purchased and
paid for, then it is wise to enquire
how far it is desirable to deal with
American mine   owners in the futuro.
There is a desire everywhere
throughout the country to live in harmony with the people of the United
States and to work as far as possible
for mutual advancement and profit,
but the Amerioans have studiously
sought to have all the advantage upou
their side. Tho provincial government has it in its power to enact that uo
alien shall locate, work or owu a mining claim in this province aud tho
Dominion government has power to
impose an export duty upou ore, aud if
the people begin an agitation for legislation of this kind they will secure
it. This country is not by any means
at the mercy of the United States and
is amply able to devise such protective
laws as will give it the full enjoyment
and profit of its resources, and this
transaction of tho Northport smelter
if it be persisted in, will go a long
way towards arousing the people to
demand a law which will placo American mining men here on the same
footing as the law places Canadian
mining men in Washington.
How different was the conduct of
the officers and men of the Mohegan,
when that vessel was cast away, compared with the cowardly selfishness of
the officers and crew of the Bourgoyne,
the Freuch liner. The Englishmen
and Americans who made up the crew
of the Mohegan, stood to their posts
like men and gave their lives to save
those for whom they were responsible.
The captain is said to have maintained his position ou the bridge after the
ship struck and thence gave his orders
with much coolness. These orders were
carried out by tho men as promptly as
they could be under the distressing circumstances. Tho steamer sank rapidly after the fatal contact with the
rook and it was impossible to lower
all the hoatB, but some of them were
got out aud scores who would otherwise have been lost were taken safely
ashore. Many of the crew made no
attempt to save themselves in their
anxiety to get tho women into the
boats, and when tho ship plunged bow
first under the waves the captain and
his officers went with her. They that
admire heroic action, which is uot an
attribute of the great and is best
exemplified by the humble and lowly,
must feel a throb of compassiou when
they read how thoso rough men went
calmly to their deaths, giving us a
splendid example of that great love of
which the Saviour spoke when he said,
'' What greater love can a there be
than this, that a man gives up his
life for his friends?"

state cnn be depended upon to mako
overy provision ln this direction is
well known and the lack or otherwise
of educational facilities is dependent
upon the communities themselves.
There is need in Nelson of a high
school. To have their children instructed in the higher branches which
give t* finish to the public school
course, parents havo had to send tlieir
children to Vanoouver or Victoria. All
this trouble aud expense could be
avoided and a high school could be
seoured for Nelson by compliance j
with a very simple regulation. As l
soon as there are twenty pupils in a j
district who have passed the examiua- |
tion the province is bound to supply
the high school grant of $2000 to fur-1
nish accommodation in the higher
classes. This being tho case it be-

instructed with a view to passing the
entrance examination. Those examinations, under the regulations of the do-
It matters not what taxes the citizen
may hand into the treasurer, if he
neglect to pay his road tax, ho will
not be permitted to vote at the munic
ipal elections. This tax amounts to
$2 and every resident over 'Jl years of
age is liable. Those who take an interest in municipal affairs, and every
ratepayer in the city should be in that
position, should see that his name is
on the voters list and know that he is
-qualified to vote by paying the road
tux with liis other tuxes. Nelsou has
become an important point, and, as
the city increases in business and
wealth, municipal management will
be a much different matter to what it
is now The public works of the
place will have to keep pace with its
growth and theso will require the expenditure of large sums, increasing annually. The best business men in the
town will be needed in the council
in the futuro to govern it on business
principles and in the public interest.
In the hands of the ratepayers will be
the responsibility of electing these men
nud therefore, the ratepayers should
make certain that when they present
themselves to vote they will not bo

W. Burns, School Inspector, Speaks of
Difficulties in the Way.
Mr. William Burns, school inspector
for tho Kootenays, arrived in Nelson
on Saturday from a trip of inspection
through East Kootenay. Shortly after
his arrival, a Miner reporter had a
talk with him about the possiblities
and prospects of a high school in Nelson, ot present there being none nearer than Vancouver
Mr. Burns was of opinion that the
remedy is largely in tho hands of the
parents of tbe school children. The
government could make no move in
the matter until the Nelson school
could show 20 pupils who had passed
the high school entrance examination.
There would be no need for the
children to go to Vancouver to pass
this examination, as one over which
Mr. Burns will preside, will be held
at Nelson next Easter.
At "presenc, Mr. Bums said, a largo
number of children wero withrdawn
from the sohool whon|they had reached
the 4th or 5th reader, and others were
sent away to Spokano or the coast to
complete their education, the result
being that Nelson had fnever yet been
in a position to ask for a high school.
There are only five or six pupils
here who have passed the necessary
In Rossland tho importance of   having a high school was   fully   appreciated and overy nerve was being strained to get the required number of qualified pupils.    They   already   have   16.
If tho parents would let their children
| remain on at school and  go np for examination. Mr. Burns did not  antici-
i pate auy   difficulty   iu   getting  either
! the necessary number of  pupils or the
j government's consent.

Archbishop of Canterbury Favors the High Church.
Low Ohurohmea Very Much Aggrieved at
the Primate's .Ruling on Matters
of   Dootrine.
London, Oct. 15.���Since John Ken-
sit's anti-ritualistic crusade, church
men have been waiting anxiously the
utterances of the archbishop of Canterbury on the grave question raised
whioh has agitated whole body of
churchmen. A series of charges to
the clergy were delivered this week
and the Primate spoke with no uncertain voice. The archbishop's charge
has caused a profound impression in
church circles and deeply aggreived
the low church party. The primate
declarod'plainly that the doctrine of
tho real presence as embodied practically in the doctrine of non-substantiation, was permitted, though not expressly taught, by the church of Eug
land, that although compulsory confession was absolutely illegal, voluntary confession was logal and no
clergymen was justified iu refusing to
haer and ; he commended prayers for
the dead but forbade tho invocation of
the saints or the virgin. He declared
that the olevation and reservation of
tho sacrament and the use of iuceuse
nre non-permissible, but he approved
of a certain rovivnl of tho ritual in
conformity with the prescription of
the prayor book. Practically, the primate sanctions all the doctrines and
practices which the low churchmen
have so vehemently condemned
nnd, the high churchmen are
proportionately elated. Though they
disagree with some points, most
of clergy will fall into line with the
primates charges or injunctions.

At the Harvest Thanksgiving service held yesterday eveuiug at St.
Saviour's church, a very large congregation was prosont. Every inch of
space inside tho church was taken up.
The door was crowded and there were
ovon peoplo standing on the steps outside. The altar rails and chancel
wero tastefully decorated iu au appropriate manner, and the usual offerings of fruits and products of the field
were thoro.
,   Special    features     of   tho   service,
' which was fully choral, were  the  introductory solo and chorus from   Men-
I dolsohns' well known oratorio, "Come
Lot    us   Sing,"   and    the   Hallelujah

The  Ladies  of   Nelson Take Active
Steps to Provide a Reading Room
The Nelson branch of the Women's
Council are turuing tbeir attention to
the establishment of reading and recreation rooms and n public library,
tho want of which is folt in the city.
Both Vancouver and New Westminster
have public libraries, the latter city
having had, previous to the fire, the
finest suite of rooms west of Ontario.
Thore are scores of men, young and
old, in Nelson who have no plaoe to
spend their evenings and a publio reading room would oertaiuly bo well pat
ronized. A suggestion has been made
that the city wheu erecting its warehouse should build a two story building and devote the secoud story for
such purposes. A room for chess and
draughts a reading room, and library
should be provided and, following the
examplo of many of the mechanic's
institutes in the oast, a billiard room
might be added. The mayor has promised to bring the matter before the
city council and the ladieB appeal to
the liberality of the people of Nelson
to assist them. Subscriptions for the
purchase of a suitable library and
securing and furnishing temporary
rooms will be received by Mrs. Roderick Robertson, Mrs. Day, Mrs. Parkinson, Mrs. Robson, Mrs. Arthur, Mrs.
Russel, Adjt. Edgocombe aud Mrs.

Two Calgary  Citizens Visit the City
on a Pleasure  Trip.
Dr. J. D. Lafferty and Mr. D. W.
Marsh, two prominent oitizens of Calgary, Alberta, who are taking a pleasure trip through the Kootenay spent
Saturday and Sunday in the city. To
a Miner reporter both gentlemen expressed thmselves as greatly pleased
with the appearance of Nelson and
predict a bright future for the city.
Its geographical position as a commercial center the unlimited resources
of the tributary country and the energy and enterprise of its citizens was
sufficient evidence to them that Nelson
is certain to maintniu its position as
the lending city of the interior of
British Columbia.
Speakiug of the prairies they said
that the farmers and ranchers were
in a prosperous condition. Crops
were good and the stock industry was
never in better shape. Prices for all
kinds of live stock are good and the
development of the Kootenay district
is providing a ready market for the
produce of Alberta. The firm of P.
Burns* Co., alone pay about $40,000
per mouth to the ranchers of the
North West. The establishment of the
O. P. R. workshops at Calgary has
given Jgreat impetus to the city and
there is a considerable movement in
real estate.
Tbe visitors left yesterday evening
for home highly delighted with their
trip through the mountains.
J. M. Kellie, M. P. P., for Revelstoke spent Saturday in the city. To
a Miner reporter Mr. Kellie stated that
he saw a remarkable change for the
better in Nelson siuco his last visit
two years ago. Nelson in his opinion
has made moro substantial progress
than any other town in the Kootenay
and is destined to become the metropolis of the mining district, surrounding it.
Questioned as to the political situation Mr.. Kellie said that he did not
anticipate auy new developments until the House met in February next,
when he expected the new government would have a majority of six on
the first division. The people of his
constituency nud he believed of the
interior of British Columbia were all
well satisfied with the change in the
government of the province and would
support the government in any legislation calculated to advance the interests of the province.

Virden, Ills., Oct. 15. ���Attorney
Wm. Patton, of the Chicago and Virden Ooal oompany, is authority for

The Tribunal at Paris Making   Slow
Paris, Oct. 15.���The Amerioan aud
Spanish peace commissions, will today close their first two weeks of labor
here and any careful summarization
must disclose the fact that the progress made has been accomplished
chiefly by the negative action mid
the attitude of the Americans. The
first article of tho protocol provided
that "Spain will relinquish all claim of
sovereignty ovor and title to Cuba.''
Naturally, after tho preliminaries
providing methods of procedure and
such rules therefor as were necessary,
the joint sessions were devoted to the
Cuban article of the protocol. Naturally, too, the Americans opened their
ease by the assumption that little or
no action was necossary regarding
Ouba, on the ground that its disposition was definitely fixed by tho terms
of the protocol. Notwithstanding,
at the meeting last Thursday the Spanish submitted suggestions and propositions amounting to holding that Iho
United States should tako over all or
part of the Cuban debts, After reading this presentment in English on
Tuesday, Seunr Moutoro Rios, president of the Spanish oommission. verbally repeated it at length and reiterated the samo in summarized form.
The Americans at tlieir own session
on Wednesday took up the Spanish
presentment anil determined the formulation of the answer of tho United
States, on which the clerical force
was busily engaged until the hour of
the Fridav session, the commissioners
in the meanwhile devising, amplifying, aud fortifying it. Careful, exact
and full was the preparation of the
answer aad, therefore, it became impossible, as intended, to serve a copy
of it on the Spaniards before the hour
of opening the session, so that the oral
discussion might begin promptly. The
answer was submitted at the opening
of the session, occupying four instead
of the usual two hours, on account of
the exhaustive discussion of the matter. What was said or done none
save the commissioners, secretaries
and interpreters know.
