TO TBE DEATH
Aguinaldo's Message to the
Filipinos.
MUST BE INDEPENDENT
There is Trouble Brewing For tbe United
States in tbe Island The; Freed
From Spanish Rule.
London, Nov. 19.��� There is much
agitation among the Filipino representatives in Europe over the Philippine situation. Agoncello, representative of Aguinaldo, who has been in
Paris watobing the proceedings of the
peace oommission, sta.'ts for Washington today. It is learned that ou Wednesday last he called a meeting of all
the Filipinos in Paris and London to
meet him in Paris, whon a committee
waB formed with the objeot of doing
anything possible to induce France to
recognize the so called Filipinos republic. A telegram wus sent to Aguinaldo
asking for instructions and this reply
is said to have been received "insist
upon absolute independence, otherwise
we fight to the death. We are all
united and the government is progressing smoothly. All dependent tribes of
the mountains are submitting to Agui
naldo and the chiefs are bringing in
presents of gold."
FILIPINOS MUCH  INCENSED.
London, Nov. 19.���The statements
made by General Wesley Merritt in reply to the appeal of the Filipino Junta
of Hong Kong to the American people,
have caused indignation among rue
Filipinos. They are especially incensed
at the suggestion that they wonld loot,
aud at the idea of being governed as u
colony. The Filipinos of Paris are
sending a despatch to President McKinley protesting against the assertions made. ' "
STABBED  TO DEATH.
Manila, Nov. 19.���Three Filippine
natives Inst night hired a carriage and
afterwards became engaged m dispute
with the driver regarding the fare
Some members of the American military police attempted to arrest them,
bnt the latter resisted and Sergeant
Price, of the Minnesota regiment, was
tstabbed and killed, and threo otber
.American soldiers, Maher, Montgomery and Hoyt wer�� wounded Maher

���arrested. ���
It is reported that Iloilo, capital of
ithe island of Pana, is in the hands of
tthe insurgents. The United States

ihiwo gone there.
SPANISH VIEW.
Madrid, Nov. 19. ���Ah offloial despatch from Iloilo says the situation in
the Visoayas islands is less grave than
alleged. The insurgents' attack on
Iloilo is denied. According to government officials here there is no truth in
the report that certain parties are conspiring against the Spanish government.
TRADE WITH FIJI.
Vancouver, Nov. 10���Vancouver is
working up trade with Fiji particularly in bananas. Formerly that fruit
was only available for eight months of
the year, and came from Central America. From Fiji it will oome nil the
year round. On arrival here tile bananas are bung up green in a cool room
until they begin to yellow. Then they
are passed into a cellar heated by gns
where they become fit for food nnd are
sent to the stores. The Fiji variety
have a better flavor than those fi oui

Fiji is taking from British Columbia,
apples, potatoes and onions.

been struck about 450 feet north of the
former workings, and at greater depth
than had been previously obtained. It
is considered that this strike ensures
the permanence of the ore bodies.
Tbere is a large qunntity of ore on
the dump but the company is holding
it until next summer, when they are
assured, one railroad, if not two, will
be bnilt into that country.
The Lanark mine, which is being
operated by a subsidiary company of
the L- &��� F. B Co., is not working at present, but will be opened up
next summer.
CROW'S NEST PASS RAILWAY.C
The Official Opening to be Inaugurated
by a Special Excursion.
Since the Canadian Pacific railway
assumed possession of the Crow's Nest
Pass line on the 16th inst., the work of
ballasting aud getting the line into
condition for traffic has been vigorously pushed nudjjtbe official opening, at
which time the traffic from Nelson to
Dunraore ou the main line will be
inaugurated, will take place early uext
month. The local officers will make
this quite an event and invitations
have been issued to many representative men in Nelson. Rossiaud and surrounding districts to join them in the
excursion which has been planned for
the occasion.
The new iron steamer Moyie, on
which tha work of fitting is rapidly
proceeding, will carry the party from
Nelson to Kootenay landing, where a
train will be found in waiting to convey the guests of the company to Fer-
nie, at the coal mines in the Pass, the
end of the jonruey. The itineary is
from Nelsou to Kooteuay lauding, to
Cranbrook for the night, toTPernie tiie
following day and thence back to Nelson. The party will be gone about
three days. Only a limited number of
invitations will be issued and the date
of the f vent, has uot yet been decided
upon, though it is very likely that it
will take place in the first week in
December.
PETTY PRICES
A NARROW ESCAPE.
Mr. H. W. Simpson, the Victim of a Bail-
way Aooident���Injuries Severe
But Not Dangerous.
Mr. H. W. Simpson, contractor was
brought into the city yesterday forenoon, suffering from very serious injuries recoived in nn accident near
eight mile siding between Nelson and
Robson.
Mr. Simpson was engaged with a
party of men in distributing poles
along tha railway track for the West
Kootenay Power & Light oompany by
means of a car hauled by a team of
horses. He was ou the lookout for a
train from Robson but* did not* expect
oue from Nelson, when suddenly from
around the curve a west bound freight
appeared. The men who were with
Mr, Simpson at once fled to a place nf
safety. He, however, managed to cut
loose the tenm from the enr and then
ran baok along the track. When the
engine struck the car the timbers were
sent flying in all directions. Onn of
them struck Mr. Simpson knocking
him down and breaking two ribs and
inflicting other injuries. Hn wns
brought to Nelson at 11:80 o'clock yesterday and taken to his rooms at the
Hume hotel whero his injuries were
attended to by Drs. LaBau and Forin.
The doctors report that tho injured
man is resting easily and that his injuries while extremely painful, aro not
considered dangerous.
The damage done to the rolling stock
was considerable, but the train did
not.leave the track. Tho train had
the right of way aud there was no intimation given that thore was a car
ahead.
The Hauteur of the Emperor
Resented.
GERMANY'S ROYAL ROW
William Repents of HiB Lofty Aotions
Against the Begent of Lippe, Whieh
Caused a Scandal.
Berlin, Nov. 19.���The absorbing
topic in the German press during the
past week has been the Lippe-Detmold
case. The verbatim publication of the
document, which first .appeared in a
Vienna paper, and which were afterwards copied by the entire German
press, enabled the nation generally to
form an intelligent idea of the whole
matter and since, in the continued absence of the emperor, tbe government
has deemed it best to keep silence, the
comments of the newspapers have beeu
both varied and interesting. Iu the
verbatim report, the regent's original
letter of complaint was shown to have
been in a very respectful, calm language, and that, apparently, the emperor had no reason whatever to reply
ity the curt, insulting telegram forbidding the regent ever to address bim in
a similar manner again. The circular
letter sent by the' regent to the reigning princes also set forth his grounds
for complaint in a very dignified man
ner. None of the answers have been
divulged so far, but it is said in diplomatic circles that several of the replies
received by the regent are conciliatory
and sympathetic, especially one from
the prince regent of Bavaria, while tbe
replies of the King of Saxouy and the
Grand Duke of Baden counselled moderation. It is understood tbnt all the
replies of the prince's will be publish
ed later. According lo reports from
those who are near to the emperor, his
majesty has lately changed his opinion
of tho whole case aud now regrets
treating the regent so haughtily and
allowing the case to go as tar as it has,
becoming n national scandal. It is too
late, however, to sfiip the matter and
the Bundesrath will lake up the case
at an early opportunity. It must deal
with two poiuts, the regent's formal
complaint against the emperor and the
protest {of the emperor's brotber-in-
law, Prince Adolph, of Schaumbergh-
Lippe. against the diet's adoption of
the law of succession, which declared
the regent's lawful issue entitled to
succeed to the throne ef Lippe. The
protest is held to be purely of a vexatious nature, inasmuch as the court of
arbitration, presided over by the King
of Saxony, has declared that the
Schaumbergh-Lippe, therefore, has only a remote interest in the succession.
Practically tbo eutire German press
sides with the regeut of Lippe-Det-
moldi.
AN IMPORTANT DEAL.
CONSERVATIVE NOMINATIONS.
Goderich, Ont,, Nov. 19.���At the
conservative convention yesterday,
Mayor Beck, tho conservative candidate in Maroh at the provincial elections, was renominated as the conservative candidato for the legislature,
ani Robert McLean was nominated as
candidate for the Dominion house.
GAZETTE NOTICES.
Mr.M.T. Barasch,secretary of the Lil-
loet and Fraser river company yesterday informed a Miner reporter that
there is a good denl of aotivity now
in mining oircles in the Lardeau, at
least ten properties having recently
���changed hands.

A Question Whethor   the   Mintral  or
the Timber is of More Value.
Trustworthy information has reached this paper that negotiations are being rapidly carriod to a successful issue
whereby the representatives of the
Duncan Miues, limited, will acquire
from J. Fred Ritchie, the well known
sutveyor aud pioneer of this part of
the provinco, a group of four claims
which form the western extension of
tho Nelson-Poorman.
Tho properties carrv free milling ore
with good values, but that is not their
only value in the eyes of mine owners
in the vicinity of Kagle creek. They
nro well wooded, uud boar a very large
supply of the best mining timber, and
the supply of mining timber will before very long, as all mining men who
know the district agree, become a
; most important question, its the nvuil-
nble supply in thu Immediate neighborhood is now small aud is rapidly decreasing.
It is understood that n tramway will
be constructed in the spring from  the
Granite group to their mill site,   and,
considering the soaroity of timber before referred to, the management is to
he-congratulated on having  succeeded
jin     securing    Mr.    Ritchie's   claims,
I which from their timber   bearing   ca-
Ipncityare unique   hi   lhat   neighbor -
1 hood.
While the pi -e has uot transpired,
' it is undirsti <il that Mr. Ritchie gets
a good figure for his claims, and the
iDuncan Mines company has thus given
I another instance of shrewd business
< forethought by making themselves safe
i on the all important question of
handy, and consequently cheap, timber supply.
ADDRESS TO LORD   MINTO.
Ottawn, Nov. HI.���Major BinghAm
on behalf of Ottawa, presented an address of welcome to Lord and Lady
Minto today at noon. Iu his renly
Lord Miuto noted the material progress
of thc capital, contrasting tho conditions with thoso of 18 years ago, when
he was a resident.
STILL STOBBORH
They Will Not Surrender the
Philippines.
TJ. S. TERMS DECLINED
It is Probable That tbe Americans Will Net
Delay Longer, But Will Foroe Hat
ters to Conclusion'
cept now as tbe basis of peaceful oes-
fion. Spain being barren of territory
or cash to indemnify the United States
fully even at this juncture, she would
be still unable to meet an additional
expense to the Americans in further
operations iu the Philippines. Moreover a speedy adjustment of looal Philippine conditions is demanded. Spain
could not iu any circumstances affect
this. The Amerioans have assumed
responsibility ; and they feel that the
delay here prevents them discharging
it.
HE WILL NOT
VISIT SPAIN
CHAMBERLAIN A BUSY MAN.
Washington, Nov. 19.���It was not
uutil a late hour last evening tbat the
last paragraphs of tbe long translation
of the Spanish note, whioh was presented to the American peace commissioners last Wednesday, was deciphered*
at the state department, and most o
the members of the cabinet were not
aware of the full contents of the document until this morning, when they
called at the White house. It appeared
that in addition to the long argument
which was intended to show that the
word "disposition. " used in relation
to the Filippines, meant something
else, the Spanish note included a proposition to submit tbe Filippine clause
of tbe protocol iu the interpretation to
arbitration. Another cablegram followed the first telegram message this time
directly from Judge Day, seeking instructions definitely on some points to
be made in the American answer, as
yet to be presented. These instructions have been sent forward and it
may be stated without going into details that tbey are precisely in line
with the policy which the American
commissioners have been pursuing np
to tbis point in the negotiations.
With a view of bringing matters to
a speedy conclusion, the American
commissioners, by direction of the president, early in the coming week wil
lay before the Spaniards the final nnd
irrevocable demands of the United
States, allowing a specified time in
which the American conditions may
he accepted or rejeoted. This ultimatum, it is understood, involves all tbat
has thus fnr been contended for, including the surrender to the United
States of the entire Filippine group,
nud also names the amount of cash
which thc United States government
will pay Spain in consideration of her
expenditures on account of pacifio im
provements aud betterments in the island of Luzon. Tbe amount of the
cash payment is uot known but there
is a basis for the belief that it is approximately $40,000,000.
THE FIRST PROPOSITION.
Paris, Nov. 19.���The first proposition presented by the United States
commission to the Spaniards regarding
tbe Philippine islands was not a demand. To bring the subject under
discussion, the Americana merely submitted a proposal to take over the
Philippine islands and reimburse
Spain the amount spent by her there
on permanent betterments.
SPAIN DECLINES.
Paris, Nov. 19. ���Spain declines tbe
tonus aud the proposal itself. Had she
been stopped there, the United States
would have been compelled to repeat
tho proposal as au ultimatum, or to
tender new terms. Spain, however,
put off any consideration of the terms
by declaring that the United States,
had uo right to impugn ber sovereignty in tbe Philippines; to that one sovereignty there should pan tbe five
mortgages she had placed nn the Philippine revenues, which mu-it be underwritten, aud tbat ber dignity forbade
her to heed any question, as to how
she bad spent tbe loans so secured.
The Americans patieutly replied tbat
ibe peace conference was charged witb
Ibe disposition of the Philippines and
the sovereignty there. Tbey laid dowu
the broad principle thnt the expenses
incurred in a futile attempt at subjugation shall not be loaded upon the
colony seeking freedom. Finally,
they affirmed their right to enqnire as
to the deslination of tbo monies raised
by pledging tbe Philippine revenues.
All this postponed a discussion of the
main question, but in their next meeting the American commissioners will
go to the vital point.
Definite notice will be given that
tbo United States will take over the
all Philippines and Spain will unquestionably loarn the terms, from which
there will be no deviation. It is more
than likely that the Americans will
flatly summon Spain to effect immediate amicable adjustments. Should she
refuse to make a treaty ceding the
Philippines to the United States, the
instant alternative of Ameriia will be
tho conquest of that territory at an increased cost to Spain in the final set-
tlenieut and possibly with the loss of
Spanish lifo. It may be held that the
Philippines, if ceded now with any
terms, will be an adequate indemnity
to tho United Stntos for their war expenses already incurred, and that
Spain cannot oxpeot as a legal or a
moral right any monotary concessions.
Philippine acquisition by conquest,
however, would entail upon the United States a waste of treasure far greater thnn any sum that Spain  may  ac-
The Trend of  Affairs  in   the   States
Pleases the English.
London, Nov. 19.���The favorite liberal cartoonist pictures are: Joseph
Chamberlain the secretary of state for
the colonies. Sloan-like, bestriding a
galloping lion and catching up to the
other patiiotic orators with the remark:' "I must hurry up with my
lion ; I am a little '.ate. " In fulfilment
of this sentiment the colonial secretary
has made three speeches, handling the
whole field of foreign and domestic
politics in his customary ungloved nnd
breezy fashion, which has brought
upon his head a storm of angry retorts
from continental politicians. The
English newspapers are unable to find
anything but good iu the trend of
affairs iu tbe TTnited States. They
even discuss the Dingley bill in a
friendly tone, the Statist finding in
the acquisition of oolonial territory,
tbe hope of a relaxation of the high
tariff in the U"J*"<* States themselves.
It observes thai will be a startling
anomaly if the Dingley tariff was
maintnii'ed in all its prohibitive
ness in the United States while the
Philippines were opon to the trade of
the world.
BAD SEAMANSHIP.
The Atalanta Was Lost Because of the
Captain's Carelessness.
Portland, Ore., Nov. 19.���One of the
survivors of  tbe   ill-fated    Atalanta
claims the wreck was due to tbe  care
lessness of the captain,  who  paid  for
his folly with his life.    They were re
turning with another vessel aud  kept
close iu shore in order to get the  ad
vantage  of the wiud in   tacking  and
to make a short cut to bead  the other
vessel off.   They were close  in shore
and not seeing the light  at  the cape
owing to foul weather,   steered ahead
until she struck a reef about fonr miles
below Alaea bay, and  about  one  mile
and a half from shore with suoh terri
fie force as to snap the masts  off  like
tooth   picks,   carrying    rigging    and
everything with them.
Two of the survivors, after reaching
land, made their way to a cabin and
awakening the occupants started them
in search for help. The farmers were
verv slow in notifying the life saving
station at South Beach, 20 miles away,
and tbe life boat did not reach the
wreck for 10 hours after it occurred
When it finally arrived the ship had
broken in two and the waves washed
over her.
AMERICAN MEAT IN  GERMANY.
Proposals of Retaliation by the U.   R.
Have Effect on the Germans.
Berlin. Nov. 19.���It is learned thnt
the Imperial government has been impressed by the tone Of the American
press on the question of American
measures of retaliation, as an answer
to the severe provisions of the Imperial
meat inspection bill now under consideration by the government, which hns
also noted thn decrease in the number
of agrarian votes at tbe last Reichstag
elections aud is now desirous of folio**-.
ing in the wake of Russia in tbe meat
question. Therefore, the Bundesratl
will probaby amend the meat inspec
tion bill. One material alteration it-
likely to be a change in tho system of
inspection of earned ments and sausages. Samples only will be taken
from each batch and their examination
will stand for the lot. A notice circulated by the German government thut
several lots of Americau fruit have been
stopped at Hamburg because the San
Jose scale was found among them, appears to be true, but not a single scale
was discovered living. They were all
dead.
A FRENCH SPY.
Detected in Germany and Sent to Prison for Six Years.
Berlin, Nov. 19.���The trial of a
Frenoh spy, Isador Decou, for betraying important military secrets to
France, waa opened before the Imperial court at Leipzig today. Decou's
accomplices have not been traced, but
the evidence points to German mili-
tarymeu being inculpated. The spy
was eventually sentenced to six years
imprisonment, to tou yenrs loss of civil
rights and to police supervision. The
public prosecutor said Docou was un
agent of the French intelligent e department.
EXCHANGE OF HONOBS.
Madrid, Nov. 19.���The Spanish government has received despatches from
Senor Montero Rios, president of the
peace commission of Spain at Paris,
detailing the investure of President
Faure with tho Order of tho Golden
Fleece,bestowed upon him by tbe Queen
regeut. aud giving further proceedings
regarding the peace negotiations.
President Faure has conferred the
Grand Gordon of the Legion of Honor
on tbe Queen regent.
THE 81LVER MARKET.
The German Emperor Alters
His Plans.
REASON OF THE CHANGE
The Passage of the Bay of Biscay is Too
Bough, Besides He Wants to Open
the Reichstag-
Berlin, Nov. 19.���Emperor William's
sudden abandonment of his intention
to visit one or moro Spanish ports - on
his return to (jermany by sea, and his
determination to go home by way of
the Adriatic sea. landing at Pola, and
taking the train there for Potsdam,
via Inmsbrnck, bas given rise to considerable speculation as to the real motive of his change of programme. The
official explanation, giving the health
of the empress as the sole reasou fer
his majesty's rapid return, is only pai-
lially accepted here, though it is well
known that tbe passage across the
Bay of Biscay is an uncomfortable one,
especially in view of the change in
temperature aud the prospects of
stormy weather. The impression
among leading politicians, however, is
thut the state of home politics and the
inappropriateuess of his proposed visit
to Spain at the present juncture mainly
influenced the emperor's decision. The
imperial chancellor, Prince Hohenlohe,
represented to hiB majesty the necessity for au early opening of the Reichstag in view of the mass of work that
body has to get through and suggested
November 39, or December 1, for the
opening ceremonies. Emperor William, who intends to open the sesson
in pen-/!', -hereupon decided to return
directly. Tho ministers havo all re-
tuned suddeuly to Berlin ana the
greatest activity in observable in political circles.
OFFICIAL NOTIFICATION.
Count Von. Radowitz, German ambassador, bas officially notified the
Spanish government that the Emperor
William has abandoned his intended
visit to Spanish ports, "owing to
change in tbe temperature inthe Mediterranean. ''
THE  EMPEROR AT MESSINA.
Messina, Nov. 1B.���The emperor and
empress landed at one o'clock to meet
Princess Henry of Prussia, who is on
hor way to China to join her husband,
Prinoe Henry of Prussia, who is in
tho German navy, being commander
in those waters. Their majesties and
the princess lunched together.
OANNINGTON   ELEOTION.
Cauuington Manor, Nov. 19.���The
result of the polling for the Canning-
ton electoral district held on the 9th
inst, was as follows: E. G. McDiar-
mid, 238 votes; Spencer Page, 117
votes; W. Hislop, 115 votes. The
election of Mr. E. C. McDiarmid was
anticipated, but tbat he should obtain
such an overwhelming majority was a
great surprise. The official count has
been postponed until the 34th and unless it causes any change both the late
member and Mr. Hislop are likely to
lose their deposits. Mr. Page has represented the Cannington district for
the last eight years and had he continued to reside in the district would
probably have kept his seat.
COMPLAINTS OF OVER-CHARGES
Berlin, Nov. 19���As tbe German
ambassador at Madrid, Count Von
Radowitz, has beeu unable to obtain
the repayment of over-charges in export duties, of which German firms at
Manila have complained to the for-
ngn office, the firms aro now seeking
tho intervention of the United States

Tbe efforts of the ladies of Nelson to
establish a public library, which will
undoubtedly be crowued with success,
are iu every way commendable. Such
au institution has lontr been a need in
this city and the public spirited ladies
who have >aken up thc project are de
Berving of all the encouragement possible. Already considerable progress
has been made, aud all the funds necessary for tho undertaking should bo
immediately forthcoming from those
in a positiou to subscribe,and they arc
by no means few. We know of nothing
out of whioh so much good cau be extracted as out of a well-eqiupped library and when it is free to the public
it widens the circle of its usefulness,
Nelsou has not yet reaohed that stage
in its onward progress which produces
places of amusement where thoso who
seek relaxation from thc strain of business can resort nightly and indulge iu
such outortuinment as is diverting
and healthful, but even did such places
exist a public library would still sen e
a useful purpose, and thi.t more especially if a recreation room be provided
in connection therewith, something iu
the nature of a gymnasium where the
youth of the city coultl indulge in exercises that are beneficial. Anti in
connection with thc institution a chess
club could bo organized. Thero are
many excellent exponents of the royal
game, it is snid, in Nelson and Ihey
would probably avail themselves of such
a rendezvous with gratitude to Ihose
who had the happy forethought to provide it. As to tlie library proper, tbat
should bo the first consideration and
the noxt few months should see it in
full   operation.
THE  YUKON   ROYALTIES.
The Rossland Miner never mentions
the name of Nelson without indulging
in disparagement, which shows the
shallow mind moved by envy. But tho
Rossland Miner carries so little weight,
has so slight an influeuoe in shaping
the opinions of men, that it is scarcely
worth noticing. The other day, commenting upon the fact that Nelson is
soou to haye au opera house, .a height
to which the greatest mining "camn"
on earth does not seem to be able to
rise at present, the Rossland Miner
spoke of Nelson as a place of "much
less importance in population and
commerce" than Rossland. It is most
creditablo to the province that it possesses so sprightly a town as Rossland,
surrouuded by what, wo hope, will
becomo ' the greatest mines in the
world. It is equally creditable to the
province that it possesses in the interior a centre of population aud trade so
full of life and energy as Nelson is.
To decry is just as  blameworthy  as
to brag and it is hoped that we may be
held guiltless of anything so vulgar as
boasting, if we   indulge'in  compari
sons, in which the Rossland Miner has
led the way.    In the first pluce, to use
a    somewhat   frayed   and   hackueyed
term,Nelson is "beauti'ully situated".
There is no landscape perfeot without a
waterstretch.    At NelsouS foot sweeps
the opalescent waters of the beautiful
Kootenay, reflecting iu it   depths   the
shadows of the majestic hills,   said   to
be    highly    argentiferous,     beneath
which the town   nestles,   a  beautiful
picture at all times. .   Seen   from   the
hill-tops, it is a dream, a vision of artistic symmetry.    Seeu from the water
the terraced slopes of  Naples are  not
more picturesque.    The  oity's  pretty
homes, in whicli are oomfort and   culture, rise tier upon tier  on   the  hillside, where sunbeams play   and   south
wiuds have their sport. Here, says the
wayfarer,   whon   his  eyes   rest  npon
the delightful   spot,   here   is beauty,
here is art, here is repose, aud   as   he
starts up street to immediately   buy a
lot and get iu before the boom  starts,
he is astonished to find tbat the repose
is [limited   by   the  business   streets.
There he meets the phalanges of smart,
eager, able  business   meu * who  make
Nelsou their headquarters   and  direct
from its cosy environment   (bo  operations of the  surrounding   district;   he
sees the elegant stores, with plato glass
windows behind the glisteuing front of
which lies a wealth of luxuries ; ho sees
banks,   the   thresholds   of   whioh   are
worn thin by constant streti ms of  cash
customers, whilo behind   the  railings
are   scores   of   clerks   busily  making
drafts on Rossland ;  be sees   the   men
who made the   Kootenay   and   distinguished persons of wealth   and   influence attracted thither from all pnrts'by
the great possibilities of this city  and
tho district; making  his   way   across
Baker street, where there is a   coutin
nous procession  of   commercial   drays
teaming merchandise to nnd from   thi
boats and trains,    hi!   comes   into  the
residence section.    There he meets the
most engaging ami  biiudsomcst   ladies
in tlio Kootenny, dainty   and   fashionable, and ho sees   troops   of   beautiful
und unliable children   whoso  decorous
deportment tolls of cnrcfnl training in
refined   homes.       Round    nbout   are
churches, everywhere are   pretty  resi
donees, overywhere indications of   robust life.
The true critic .detects only the beauties of u mnt ter. of the blemishes ho
has nothing to sny.   Therefore,Jail we
have to say ih, tlint in tlio Miner, Ross-
Innd bits a mnlclilcss possession.  Thero
isn't   its equal   anywhere else in   the
Kootenny and it grows more  astonish
ing ench day.

The Monetary Times, published in
Toronto, thinks that the royalty on
the output of gold from the Yukon
should be abolished. It is difficult to
understand why eastern papers should
be so solicitious lor the miners of the
Yukon, unless it be that their editors
nro pressed for themes and wish to
display oddity, in the belief that it is
sense. The royalty is not a hardship
and, as we understand it, the great
bulk of those fortunate enough to hold
claims in that region make no complaint. There limy bo some who object^ the tnx.for with many the payment of any tax is irksome, but the
great majority of claims owners cau
afford to pay it and should pay it without hesitation. There is another side
to the question from that of the miners, and that is thc government side.
The Yukon was an unorganized district until but a short time ago, when
tho minister of the interior, knowing
what was expected of tbe government,
set nbout bringing the territory undor
control. To do this it was necessary
to despatch a staff of officials and
to support the authority which they
roproseuted by suoh a force as was
deemed necessary. Therefore, a detachment of mounted police was sent
thither and this m>t| beingj thought
fluftioieut a oontingt nt of garrison infantry was sent forward. This entailed heavy expenditure on tho government. It was n very costly operation
to send men and supplies into this fur
away corner of the Dominion and
whon the minister of the interior declared that it wns liis intention to
make the Yukon pay tor the Yukon ho
made a business proposition in  which
everyone viewing   the   facts   properly |  :���
concurred.    When it is considered th; 11    Toronto, Nov.  19, ���The London elec

foreigners, that they paid little for
thoir claims in the shape of registration fees, that their lnbor or presence
in the territory is of no benefit to Canada, inasmuch as many of thom draw
their supplies from foreign ports and
depart thither with their gold when

CHY AND VICINITY
QUEEN TO QUIT SPAIN
Satisfied That Her Son Will Never Be King,
She Will Withdraw in Favor of
the Noble Olaimmt- '
London, Nov. 19.���A curious report
n regard to Spain's future government
is current iu diplomatio circles,which,
from its source is entitled to ,weigbt.'
It is to the effect that there will be a
change of dynasty, but a peaceful
change. The Queen regent is said to
be convinced of the hopelessness of her
son ever reigning and on the adivce of
the emperor of Austria has decided,
soon after the peace treaty is signed at
Paris, and every one now regards this
as ouly a question of days, to quit
T3pain with her family, and Don Carlos will bo proclaimed king. Everything is reported to be already arranged and the army and clergy are alleged
to be eager for the change. According
to the programme, Don Carlos, so soon
as things are running smoothly, will
abdicate in favor of his sou, Don
Jaime.
HANDS ACROSS THE SEA.
R. E. Prouch Oompany'to   Play   This
Popular Drama in the iKiik.
The R. K. French company will open
a week's engagement in the Nelson
riuk this evening with tho popular
drama.    "Hands Across the Sea. "
The plot of the play is decidedly interesting. Jack Dudley, the superintendent of Joe Stillwood's farm, falls
in love with Lucy, the neice of his
employer. Mr. Slillwood, however,
has determined to marry her to his
son, Robert, to keep what he has not
nlready squandered of her fortune in
the family. In spite of all this the
young people are mi.rried and go to
Paris on their wedding trip. Here
Robert turns up, asks forgiveness for
bis past bad actions, and pretends to
be a great frieud of Dudley, whom he
introduces into fast circles. He introduces one Count Paul, a rogue and
noted duelist into the home of the
DudleyB. The Frouchuien insults
Mrs.   Dndley   but   is   repulsed    with
scorn, Mr. Dudley appearing in time
throws him bodily from the apartments. In a spirit of revenge Count
Paul boasts of his alleged relations
with Mrs. Dudley iu a notorious gambling hell. By the connivance of Robert Stillwood,! Jaok Dudley hears this
and promptly knocks the villainous
Frenchmen down. Count Paul leaves
the gambling house and is murdered
by Robert Stillwood, aided by the keeper of the house, in order to secure
large sums of money which be has
won. Soou after they leave the body,
Jack Dndley comes along and discovers it. He is fouud standing by its
side, is promptly accused of the murder, and sentenced to death, which is
afterwards changed to imprisonment
for life in thq penal colony at New
Caledonia. :
Dudley escapes and is taken on board
an American vessel. The French officers come on board  and   try   to   nrrest

an age of the Evil Ona's own picking
does it come to wicket deeds) wa" milking between when tho screen crushed for
ward aud Leroy bounded into the room,
Kace close after him.
"Don't fire!" he called to Cochrane;
"we're ou your side."
"Which side?" cried a big fellow with
a red face; "which side, Hurry? We're in
en* nest. He's going to sign, or we'll
make a vacancy in the firm!"
"Hardly," said Leroy. "Get your
revolver" (to Cochrane, who needed no
prompting but flashed it out of the
drawer). "Brown, I warned vou fellows
I wouldn't havo no dirt, and I won't! It
ain't live to one now, but live to three���
and the telephone! The polico will lie
here inside ten minutes." The man nearest the door quietly slipped back tho bolt.
"Are you going to go back nn the buys
and fight for tho sorubs, Harryf" cried
Brown.
"I ain't going to let you disgrace honest men who fight fair," said Leroy,
firmly, "Time's short���are you going to
skip or wait to be pinched, whilo you'ro
parley-vonlng?"
"If we do go now," grumbled another
man, "we'll be pinched before night anyhow. I'm for doing up the whole���"
He stopptd; there was something
clammy and ugly in tho impact of Leroy's
revolver jammed against liis   shirt-front.
"Gut out,and you may save your skins
for all tlie informing I slinll do," said
Coohrane, who had been taking in the
whole scene with an ironic smile. "Bul
1 mlvis.i ye, lads, to skip out of tewn.
the sooner the better."
"Who gave us away, Harry?" said tht
big man���the others had unostentatiously
sidled to the door.
"That's my lookout," said Leroy.
The big man mode no answer, although
he turned on Race a glance of menaoe.
The youngest of the party relieved their
chafed vanity by a few threats; but in
the end, ami no long time either, they
left tbe three men standing together.
"Will they be setting tho house aflre
going out, for a parting token, do ye
think?" panted Cochrane.
"They are more likely to pay Race or
mo that compliment," said Leroy,quietly.
Cochrane wiped his brow. Ho was a
portly man and he was putting with his
exertions. "I'll buy me a bicycle, this
su.. ��� ������ day," cried he. "1 must work down
to fighting weight; those blackguards
would have dono mo mi if you hadn't
come in so handily. Weil, will ye take
something?"
"I never drink, Mr. Cochrane," said
Leroy, ooldly; and Race, with more
courtesy, declined the proffered decanter
also.
Cochrane chuckled under his stumpy
gray mustache. "Well, at least ye'll let
me thank ye. Those fellows were primed
for murder, no less. They had just
enough speerits in thom to bo wicked. I
see yo wero right in your caution, Leroy." He held out his hand, but Leroy
turned red and took a step backward,
saying, very stiffly, "You owe mo ni
thanks aud I owe you none, Mr. Coeh
rane.''
Again Cochrane chuckled. "But ye
got the police?"
"No, sir, I didn't. That wns just u
bluff. Battles was coming to warn you,
end I was only going to the gate with
him, when 1 caught a glimpse of Brown
nnd Knney and tlie othe.**. and of course,
I went iu. There wasn't a cop in a
mile!"
"Weel, yo did the bluff fine, man; ye'll
shako hands. You're a man and I'm a
man; am 1 no? And we've fought tu
gether. It's no the president of the
Cochrane Plough Company, or the chair
man of the Strike Committee; It's juist
Alan Cochrane and Hurry Leroy���eh,
Battles?"
"That's right, sir.'* said Race,
"And 1 may as weel tell ye," said
Cochrane, "that's all a lie about the car-
loud of new men." (Leroy's eyes flashed.)
"And if th? union send you I'll see ye,
to-morrow, and we'll talk it out. If you'll
eome buck at the old wages they'll not
be cut, and in n month or two I'll be
able to raise theni a bit: and the other
things we'il talk over. Te can all come
back; they'll lie no discreemlnntion, not
even against thein"���jerking his thumb
at the window; "they'll most like be
running anyhow, the fule bodies!"
"I'll do my best, sir," said Loroy, in
a different tone.
"He's done his best against the striko
all along," Race put in.
"Only becauso I thought the strike
had no chance of wiuning," said Leroy,
stiffening again.
Cochrano's sharp little gray eyes
twinkled. "Lush, man, don't be scared
that I'm putting ye on my Bido. Ye'll
let me think ye an honest enemy, will
yo no? I'll conseeder thoso same grievan-

noon, und I'm glad
lie, slinking hands,
hands with the great political personages
to whom ho was sometimes presented
when there was need of the lnbor voto.
Kaee followed his example, observing
the same form.
" Kor the matter nf thnt, I'm glad,
too," said the old Scotchman, dryly.
Returning, Leroy was In higher spirits
thun Race. The non-comhotnnt ruefully
considered how In1, who only wished for
peace, had now fought on both sides, to
his own proper loss and peril. Having
angered his best friend pust forgiving by
helping the strikers, he had now won
thu ill-will of the moat reokless strikers
by fighting for the hated Cochrane. .The
baleful eyeblink shut at him by Brown
rankled like a poisoned arrow. Ho
thought of Coohmno's speech about Are,
and Leroy's answer.
"And mo with not a cent insurance,"
ho groaned; "but, Lord! they wouldn't
bo such fiends!"
Were thoy? It is past tolling. No olues
wore found. The live suspected men were
full of pity and Innocence from the teeth
outward. Alibis were reudy at hand for
overy ono of them. Nor ls it sure that
they were not genuine, those alibis. A
defective flue, the unpunishable incen-
dlury in so many cases, may have played
its tragic part again. Whatever the
cause, this ut least ls certain, Race's
building, grocery and home, was burned
that same night. Tliu lire bolls awakened
Harcourt T. Wells, a bachelor, lodging
in a hotel. He counted the strokes���half
tho numeral in bed, half out on tho floor
scrambling into his clothes���for lt wus
Coobrnne's number, That wus enough to
send him downstairs to tho telephone,
and thu sleepy answer "No, It's not
Cochrano's, some grocery, Battles', they
Bald!" spurred him hot foot through tho
streets. There ls something in u midnight
Are thut pricks iho nerves. It maybe tho
c'lii'rast between the quiet streets outside, with tho dim stores, the shrouded
counters, the BhadoWS of tho tall facades
on the roadway, the white porouplnes of
light blinking and winking in the dark,
violet ulr, nud  tbe  aeet'dng  exoltament
that* waits round the corner. Or lt may
bo that the touch of pathos ln human
oal&inity tied ths touoh of horror in
human peril blend with a shuddering
appreciation of the pageantry of the sight.
The meanest structure flaming in the
night borrows a ghastly and sinister
beauty. And more than anything lt may
be that fire-bells, especially fire-bells in
the unguarded hour of darkness, startle
the imagination with the sympathy of a
common dread; to*ni.*ht., you; to-morrow
i ght, we, perhaps! As Wells pounded
down the i-idewulk, he oould hear the
thud of his own t.iollall; i,nd ho remembered unother time of his hearing the
same sound, the time when his own great
store was aflre���then, Race and he were
the last mon on the roof.
Snatches of many scenes drifted
through his mind in whioh one humble,
faithful figure stood, as if against that
red glow in the west; while he ran, heedless of his yeara and his weight, faster
and faster.
All he hud heard from Cochrane that
afternoon, all he had heard in Race's
storo before ho went to Cochrano's, made
u mingle mangle in his brain,like a tune
to hiB hurry feet.
First he passed a black muss of heads.
Then he stepped oyer the line of hose and
Tound a crowd of Cochrano's men, every
man of thom carrying something that he
had pulled out of the smoke. Cochrane
ivas on an empty box, directing tho loading of some drays, and swearing and
shouting at the men with as much fervor
as if nothing had occurred to disturb
their relations; tho men themselves run
nlng und tugging with the heartiest
obedience. The building was masked in
smoke. It poured from the windows, the
firemen' were lighting the &te on the
roof; und the wing in the rear was blazing. Wells ran to the front, where there
was a heap, of household goods not yet
removed, although Leroy was busy with
a score of helpers. Half a dozen loudly
sympathizing women were grouped about
Mrs. Battles, who sat in the wicker armchair on tho best hair mattress, rooking
to and fro, unconscious of an extraordln
ury toilet of her best black silk skirt and
Race's trousers flung ' hastily about her
night gear, in mistake for a jaoket, and
Race's Sunday silk tile perched on her
woful head; equally unconscious that she
was huddling two photographs, the bust
of Clvtie and the bust of Abraham Lincoln,'to her breast
"Where's Race?" she walled; "where's
Raoe Battles? Danny, .Where's the master?"
Soot and flour had made a grizzly
charcoal study of Danny as he tottered
up to her, crooked by n huge white sack.
"It's the very last Back of flour, gasped
Danny. "He ain't inside. I was all over."
Mrs. Buttles screamed. She could see
hor husband. He was on the peak of the
I'oof, apart from the firemen; and he held
the garden-hose ln his hand.
"Hush, ma, don't be soared," said
Stella. The girl was dressed and calm.
"See, they're all coining down!"
' But he ain't!" Bhrieked the wlfo,
"he's staying. Race! Race! Come down!
Let the store go! What's the store to me
If you get killed? Race! Come this minute I Oh, he can't hear mo. Mr. Wells
you call him; he'll mind you I"
Then Wells did a reokless thing. He,
Harcourt Wolls, elbowed the women asids
and ran up the ladder like a foolhasty
boy.
"Race, you old fool, come down!" he
bellowed. The roof was smoking. The
firemen were gone, safe down off the
other ladders. Raoe stood alone. He
faced the smoke volleying toward him,
spitting burning cinders from out the
glare behind thi; murk. His white shirt
was puffed out by the wind of the fire,
and his face wus like the shirt, as he
trained his poor little squirt-gun of hose
on the crackling roar.
"My life's insured but the building
ain't," he shouted baok; "I've got to
save it."
Swearing roundly, Wells stumbled up
the roof. "I'll pull you off if you won't
cornel" he howled through the din. Ho
grabbed Race's leg. Race dropped the
hose; and he did turn now.
"You're crazy," he cried. "Get off."
"Crazy yourself!" snapped Wells.
"Here, you got down that ladder first,
and find your wife."
They slid down togethor. None too
soon, either, Bince the roof whoreon Race
had stood crashed in bofore their feot
touched the ground. Race felt Wells'
hand .on his arm hauling him baok. He
clung to it, piteously shaken, and began
to laugh.
"You ain't mad at me���that's most
worth the fire," he;quavered.
"Of coutse I'm not mad at you, yon
blooming Idiot," growled Wells, who was
puffing and perspiring at every pore as
well as burned by a dozen cinders; "why
In thunder didn't you como round and
give mo a chance to say so? I wasn't going to take your money the other day; 1
know how it squeezed you. But you
wouldn't wait a minute. No, you must
needs go off hnlfcock! You needn't be '
looking so black and blue either. I came
around here to-day and saw your olork,
who Isn't such a fool us he looks, and he
told mo all about the insurance, end the
little girl's being willing to glvo up hor
dress and all, I paid the Insuranoe policy,
Race, this afternoon. You'll bo a year ot
two to tho bad, but I'll soa you through.
Aud the little girl shall have ns pretty a
frock at the show as any girl In town���
Cochrane and I'll see to that���Race! you
aren't hurt, aro you? Here I Somebody I
Get some whiskey!" :
"It's���It's only just the, smoke. It got
Into my windpipe, f. guess," sobbed Race,
lhe tears running down his cheeks.
"Smoko's terrible on the eyes. God bless
you, Harcourt T. Wolls���it's only just
the Btnoke." ��
