Washington, Oct. 25.���At the cabi-
iit meeting today the situation in
fulia was gone over for the information of the members who did not see
je president yesterday. It was ex-
llnined that the time limit for the
niciiittion of the island had been ex-
1'inled from December 1 to January 1,

le careful consideration of the presi-

Santiago de Cuba, Oct. 25.���The
first session of the Cuban assembly was
hold yesterday at Santa   Cruz del Sur.
A majority of the delegates are military delegates, each of the six army
corps being represented by eight.
The sensation of the assembly was
the appearance of General Calixto Garcia as one of the delegates from the
Fifth army corps, a fact whioh practically renders him supreme at the assembly's session. His election to preside over the proceedings is considered
a foregone conclusion.
The principal question will be the
question of disbanding the army. It
is thought the assembly will not order
the disbanding until, in the words of
one of the military delegates, "Some
assurance is given' by President McKinley that he intends to observe the
resolution of the United States congress regarding the absolute freedom of Cuba.
Tho assembly will appoint u committee to wait on President McKinley
regarding the status of Cuba, consisting probably of Garcia, Quesada aud
Parraga. Another proposition to be
brought before the assembly is the
division of Cuba into four states, establishing tho capital in a new inland
A delegate will propose the trial by
court martial of all officers in the Cuban army, who have permitted their
men to disband. In these ways and in
others the assembly intends to show
the world that it considers the Americans merely temporary visitors, who
will evacuate tho island shortly after
the Spaniards.
A Tastefully Deoorated Hall and Well Ar'
ranged Stalls���The Post Office -
Raffles Tonight
As announced in yesterday's Miner,
the ladies of tho Catholic church
opened their bazaar yesterday afternoon in aid of the church building
fund. The bazaar is being held in the
buildiug formerly occupied by the
Lawrence Hardware company, and
great taste and energy has been displayed by tho ladies in decorating the
room. The ceiling is hung with flags
and bunting, aud the walls are covered with daiuty specimens of fancy
The stalls are very prettily arranged and are covered with pretty
things, some purely ornamental and
otliers useful as well. On the first
stall ou the left as you go in, presided
over by Mrs. White and Mrs. Sturgeon, are displayed dolls of all shapes,
dresses, sizes and descriptions.
The next stall is a general one, containing both fancy and useful articles
of all kinds, and Mrs. Madden,
Mrs. Simpson and Mrs. Cowan
are in charge of it In the
sanctum formerly sacred to the
deliberations ot Mr. James Lawrence,
a post office lias been fitted up, of
which the Misses O'Reilly are the
post mistresses. Muoh amusement is
expeoted from the post office, where
many letters of au amusing and interesting character are waiting to be
claimed by various ladies and gentleman of Nelson on payment of the stipulated fee. There are tables and refreshment for the weary, where Mrs.
P. J. Russell, Miss Hamilton and
Mrs. De Chambon dispense the good
things, and thero is also a oandy stall
presided over by Miss Mooney, Miss
McMillan and Miss Ferland ; and last,
but not least, there is close by the door
a particularly prettily arranged stall
looked after by Mrs. Clark, Mrs. H.
Campbell, Mrs. Burns nnd Miss Dietrich. Mrs. Harwood is running the
grab bag, which, needless to say is
well patronized by the younger members of tho community

be made to secure the assistance of
some of the lady singers of Nelson.
Tonight Miss O'Reilly's sofa cushion
will be raffled, as also a piano drape
and a silver inkstand.
His Ministry Defeated on a
Vote of Confidence.
The Chamber, However, Asserted the Supremacy ofthe Civil Over the
Military Power,
Paris, Oct 25. ���A vote of confiden ce
in M. Brisson was rejected by 286
to 254 in the chamber of deputies and
the Brisson ministry has resigned.
During the suspension of the business of the house the discussion in
the lobbies was animated on General
Chanoine's unprecedented course in
resigning in the midst of a session and
without giving a previous hint of his
intention to his colleagues
The moderate republicans maintained
that in view of General Chanoine's
aot, all political differences disappear
and that republicans of all shades must
unite and face the situation. Committees representing the radical left, the
extreme radicals and the progressives
met and agreed to support the order of
the day, affirming tne resolution of
the chamber to make respected, un -
der all circumstances, the supremacy
of civil power, and to adjourn the
discussion of tho interpellations until
Thursday. The Socialists also promised ot support the above  resolution.
After the chamber of deputies had
resumed business at 5 o'clock, M.
Brisson announced that the irregular
resignation of General Chanoine had
been accepted.
The premier proposed that the chamber adjourn until Thursday next and
he concluded his remarks after afflirm-
ing the supremacy of the civil power.
After an attempt upon the part of various deputies to discuss the alleged
military plot, the insults to the army,
etc., M. Ribot, on behalf of his
friends, including M. Meline, approved
of M. Bris son's statement and added :
'' We havo confidence in the army and
do not wish to see it nttacked. All
representations are unanimous on
this subject."
M. Demahay proposed a resolution
calling noon the government "to end
the campaign of insults against the
army," but M. Brisson refused to accept it. *
M. Cavaignac, the former minister
of war, rnshed to the tribune and
demanded an immfnediate discussion
of tbe resolution. He was greeted with
hostile shouts, including "Forgery"
and "Razor" which caused a great
uproar. The shouting of the word
"razor" was. probably an allusion to
the suicide of the late lieutenant colonel Henry.
M. Brisson accepted the order of the
day, proposed by M. Ribot, affirming
the supremacy of the civil over the
military powor, which was adopted by
a vote of 259 ayes to two noes.
An amendment proposed by M. Berger, censuring the government "for
not causing the honor of the army to
be respeoted" was lost by 274 to 161
votes. ���
M. Demahay again proposed his resolution calling upon the government to
end the campaign of insult against
the army.
The premier refused to accept the
motion, however.and a vote was taken
on it amid such confusion that a scrutiny was demanded. Later this
showed that the government had been
After the scrutiny had been announced, M. Berteaux moved a vote of
confidence in M. Brisson, which was
rejected by 286 votes to 254. When
this vote was declined the ministers
left the chamber.
After the ministers had withdrawn
the chamber adopted, timid cries of
"down with tho Jews," the order of
the day combining the motions of M.
Ribot and M. Demahay by a vote of
460 to 28.
A fresh tumult wos aroused by the
declaration of M. Debaudry Basson
that all the ministers except General
Chanoine ought to be impeached.
The chamber adjourned till November 4. It is the geuoral impression
among the deputies that President
Faure Will invite M. Alexandre Ribot
to form n cabinet The several detachments of the municipal guards,
cuirassers and police are massed at
the various approaches to the .palaco
of the Elysee for  fear of disturbances.
M. Brisson went to the Elysee at
seven o'clock. President Faure has
sigued the appointment of M. Lockroy, minister ot marine, in the retiring cabinet as minister of war ad interim. When accepting the resignation of the ministry, M. Faure begged
M. Brisson and his  colleagues to con
tinue   to   act   until the formation  of
the new cabiuet.
After the adjournment of the chamber there was intense excitement fol
lowed by a street demonstration, principally maintained by the auti-sem-
ites, led by M Drumout, in the vicinity of the offices of the Libre Parole
and other anti-Dreyfus papers. At
many points the boulevards soon became impassable and there wore numerous collisions between the demonstrators and the police. Only with the
utmost difficulty was a semblance of
order preserved and in many cases, it
was necessary for the cuirassiers to
clear the streets.
Tho French cabinet which has just
resigned was definitely formed on June
28 of the present year and was constituted as follows: President of the
council nnd minister of the interior,
Henri Brisson; minister of fiuance,
M. Paul Peytral; minister of education, Leon Bourgeois; minister of justioe, Ferdinand Sarrif; minister of
war, Godfrey Cavaignac, who has
since been succeeded by General Zurlinden and General Chanoine; minister of marine, Edouard Simon Lockroy; minister of foreign affairs,
Theophile Delcasse; minister of the
colonies, George Trouillot; minister of
commerce, Emile Marenjowls; minister ot agriculture, Albert Viger, who
has since resigned ; minister of public
works, Senator Tillayea. who succeeded by Senator Godin ou September 17.
Paris, Oct. 26, 1 a. ui.��� About midnight a mob of the members of thePa-
triotic league smashed the windows

owner is said to be a Jew, at the corner of tbe Rue Auber and the Rue
The vigilance committee of the Socialist party issued tonight a manifesto
condemning the action of General
Chanoine and denouncing the "make

debate in the chamber and created a
crisis.'' The committee has decided to

M. Faure has received no statesmen
tonight, but he will consult this morning (Wednesday) with thc presidents
of the senate and the chamber of deputies.
The Missing Man   Supposed   to be on
an Ocean Steamer.
Father Point, Que., Oct. 25.���It is
the impression here that Dr. Irelnud,
who disappeared mysteriously in Montreal about a week ago, is on his way
to Glasgow and Liverpool, on board
the steamship Tritonia or Scotsman.
The reason for this belief is that
among the letters sent ashore here,
from the steamer named, to be mailed
were two addressed to Trenton in
handwriting similar to that of a
specimen of Dr. Ireland's which has
been received here.
Dr. Ireland began the practice of
his profession at Lethbridge, Alberta,
in 1891. He left the coal town after a
few months residence and drifted to
South Africa.

Washington, Oct. 25.���Rev. George
Calvin Hall, archdeacon of Wilmington, Delaware, nominated by the house
of bishops of the Episcopal council yesterday for missionary bishop of Kyoto, Japan, failed of election by the
deputies today. Tho highest testimonials were paid to his character,
but in the opinion of the deputies, his
age, 52 years, is a bar to tho successful conduct of active work in the new
field and to a ready acquisition of the
Japanese language.
Toronto, Oct. 25. ���The members ot
St. Andrews congregation admitted
this morning that a cablegram had
been sent to Rev. J. Council, to reach
him when he arrives at Yokohoma,
offering him n unanimous call to St.
Andrews pastorate with $5000 and a
manse. It was intended that the matter should be kept a sercet until a reply was received, but the news came
out by accident.
St. John, Nfld., Oct. 25.���The Norwegian steamer Washington long overdue from Labrador, arrived today. She
reports having encountered hurricane
weather and having seen n largo number of icebergs along the coast. She
saw nothing, however, of Lieutenant
Peary's steamer Windward. Several
American fishing vessels have arrived
at Placentia from Fortune and St.
George's bay, in quest of herring cargoes which are being obtnined slowly.
Britain is Aroused Over the
Fashoda Affair-
Chamberlain   Believes   That War With
Franco is Inevitable and the Sooner
it Gomes the Better-
New York, Oct. 25.���A London despatch to the Sun today says: '' There
can be no doubt that the opinion of
the nation is overwhelmingly iu favor
of war unless the British contention
is conceded by Franco without reserve. Every warlike rumor is welcomed and exaggerated. Any sign of
weakness or even a move of conciliation at the present moment by Lord
Salisbury would rouse a storm which
would speedily work his political destruction. Moreover, more than one
member of the cabinet strongly favors
war with France at the present juncture. I am able to record as a fact
what I cabled on Saturday as a rumor, that Colonial Secretary Chamberlain, before the present crisis became
acute, said openly to his friends, "War
with Frauce is inevitable before long.
For my part, I believe the sooner it
comes, the better for this country." A
majority of his countrymen share his
views. *
On the other hand, the French
side of the situation is very different.
Frauce does not want and doos not expect war. She- is almost indifferent
in regard to Fashoda. If France was
a sane country, sanely governed, this
would mean n speodi '/- ? of the crisis.
Unhappily, France today is neither.''
London, Oct. 25.���The Globe thinks
the Marquis of Salisbury has made it
clear that Major Marchand must quit
Fashoda without any conditions adding : Unless that is done there can be
no discussion of the French claims in
Toronto, Oct, 25.���Chief Consul
Howson, Toronto district C. W. A.
has received a letter from Major General Hutton, in which that officer
states that ,he is quite willing to pay
for the damage dono to the cinder path
along the lake shore road on the occasion of the inarching and firing competition at Lung- Branch Rifle range.
He also said that he did not notice
the cinder sign boards wnrning horsemen from riding on the path or he
would not have done so. General Hut-
ton's prompt and satisfactory responses has given pleasure to wheelmen generally and has prevented a
good deal of unpleasantness.
Tacoma, Wash., Oct. 25.���The
steamship Tacoma of the N. P. S. S.
Co., was formally transferred from
British to American registry at the
home port of Tacoma yesterday.
Fivo thousand people on the ocean
dock listened to speeches on the occasion. It is belioved in shipping circles
that the N. P. S. S. Co., is preparing vessels for the Manila trade when
the Philippines havo been annexed.
Seattle, Wash., Oct. 25.���The
steamer Protection, next to tho last
vessel to leave St. Michael's, Alaska,
this season, arrived last night with 70
passengers and a small amoant of gold
dust. News has been received at St.
Michael's that Iho steamer Abbey Rowo
was not wrecked, os reported, but
roachod Golfin Bay. She was threo
weeks overdue. Tho dolay was caused
by tbe breaking down of her machinery. "	
Toronto, Oct. 25.���The following is
a cablo to the Evening Telegram,
dated London: In viow of the fact
that the relations between the Grand
Trunk and Canadian Pacific railway
companies continue strained, the
shareholders of the companies here
are discussing tho advisability of arranging a meeting with a view to
bringing about a speedy settlement of
the matters in dispute.

Should such a case arise an investigation would speedily follow. There
would be no haggling in the press over

Among the accounts passed at the
meeting of council on Monday was
one reimbursing the mayor for $2
given to relieve a person in distress.
There can be no objection to the
mayor giving two dollars to an indigent man, or any other sum,but when
he charges his charity to the city it is
but right that tho representatives of
the ratepayers should have something
to say as to how the city's funds shall
be applied in works of relief. It is
not for the mayor or any other official
of the city to give relief and then go
to the council and say, I gave so-and-
so such a sum and I want it back.
That is not business and the practice
should be put a stop to. If there are
indigents in the city needing relief
the question as to what form the relief
shall take should be a matter for settlement by the council. That body is
responsible to the people and it should
say how the public money should be expended. If the mayor wishes to dispense charity privately that is his
own affair, but when he pays out
money to relieve alleged distress and
looks to the. city to repay him he
takes upon himself power that he does
not possess by statute or by right of
office. He should submit such cases
to the consideration of bis colleagues
and they should decide what measures of relief to adopt. This one man
rule in a city such as Nelson, has allowed great evils to creep into the administration of public affairs and it is
time the citizens aroused themselves
to a situation fraught with much dan
ger to their interests.
This city has become too great and
influential to suffer the system of
municipal government with which it*
haa been inflicted t,< endure much
lougor. Nelson's growing importance
demands and deserves good government aud The Miner is going to help
the honest und self-respecting element 111 this town, by far the most
powerful clement if they only exert
themselves, to get. what they need
nnd that speedily.
Mr. Ogilvie in making investigation
of charges against Yukon officials is
not to take into consideration any
newspaper charges. It was well to
throw this measure of protection
around the administrator. No one puts
any faith in the utterances of the par
tisan party press either when it ac-
cusefor defends, and the estimation in
which it is held is shown by the instruction given to Mr. Ogilvie. The
party press has destroyed its influence.
Eastern paper3, entirely ignorant of
British Columbian methods, have expressed doubts aa to whether the Yukon region, should it pass uuder the
control of tlio British Columbian government, would be administered any
bettor than it has been under control of
tho Dominion government. It ia the
general opinion hereabouts that it
would. In the lirst place gold commissioners, recorders aud officials connected with the mining department are
forbidden to ^locate or own mining
claims or to become connected with
any mining project, and in the second
placo thero have never been charges
made against government officials in
British Columbia such as have been
made against thoso of the Yukon previous to the appointment of Mr.
Ogilvie. Vie know of no instance of a
British Columbia miuing official being
accused of wrong doing in discharge
of his duties and no official has over
been impeached for diahoneaty, which
would speedily follow any proof submitted to the authorities.   There may

that tho prosperous condition of the
county at present ia the after effect of
the beueficient conservative rule that
came to an untimely cud when Sir
Wilfrid Laurier achieved power.
Liberal papers, on their side are
equally incliuedJo claim the credit of
tho marked improvement in conditions. The utter absurdity of which
is plain to all sensible people.
The present prosperity so observable
throughout Canada is due to neither
oue party or the other but to natural
causes plain to everyone. There has
been a bountiful harvest of all kinds
from coast to coast, the reward of per-
serverance, proper methods and good
living on the part of the people,
which must always tell in the long
run. When governments can increase
by one grain the production of wheat
to the acre thon it will be time enough
to find in them attributes of a far
higher source. The conservatives went
out of power just as affairs were at
their lowest ebb and the liberals were
lucky enough to come in on the flow.
Wheu the poople nre prosperoua and
happy they overlook many shortcomings in government, but wheu they
find themselves struggling against depressed and unprofitable markets they
are prone to overturn the governments

The Vancouver World says attempts
were mado to forestall the decision to
be reached at the meeting of liberals
in Vancouver Thursday night, by
holding private caucuses during the
afternoon,and having resolutions and
a course of action cut nnd dried. One
or two individuals attempted to ruii
the meeting in such a way as to serve
their selfish ends, but this not meeting with the approval of all present
"it is now too late to drag these
affairs before the public, particularly
aa the meeting waa harmonious."
A rumor has it that Ed. Branchley,
of Vancouver, grub staked there, has
cleaned up $20,000 in the Yukon and is
on his wav home.

Work ou the True Blue group, consisting of the True Blue and Peacock
claims near Kaslo, has been steadily
prosecuted since last spring, when
the property wns bonded to the Hall
Mines, limited, for $65,000, by Messrs.
Fraser & Stevenson. At the present
time there iB a force of 20 men working on the property, driving tunnels
to crosscut the ledge. The results of
development work so far have proved
highly satisfactory. It is the intention of the company to build a substantial trail to the lake and the citizens
of Kaslo have been asked to contribute
one half the cost to have the trail go

Victoria, Oct. 215.��� J. Livingston
'.ouuder of tho Dawson Miner, who
'y.S'disposed of that paper and is now
in his way to Kngland to sell mining
laims, arrived from the north today.
,)ne of the most important pieces of
nformation that ho brings is that the
leet of the Boston Alaskn company,
���/Inch had the contract for carrying a
ortion of tho supplies for the Yukon
jrce, has at last reached Dawson.
>ate on Sunday evening the 25th of
eptember, the three vessels, Oover-
or Pingre, Phillip P. Lord and New
'ork, steamed into Dawson. Besides
lie belated supplies, they brought the
inch needed books, for the want of

Since tho arrival of Mr. Ogilvie
oine ueeeded reforms have also been
nade in tho post office and about
(100 boxes have been put in. The side
loor for women has beon abolished
nd although long aud tedious waits
lave to be made to secure mail, the
ervice is now tolerable.
One matter to which Mr. Livingston
i/ill draw the attention of Mr. Sifton,
the great error which he thiuks
���ould lie committed by appointing
Ir. Ogilvio to conduct the proposed
ivestigation into the charges against
Hicials. "There is not a harder
orked man in Canada today" he
>id, "than Mr. Ogilvie. From early
lorning uutil late at night ho is be-
eged by inquirers and callers of all

mes for houra. To thrust on him the
ius of so far  reaching  au inquiry as
proposed would be to burden him
ith work whioh it is absolutely im-
issible for him to perform.''
ah   Chung   and   His Wife   Still   in
I The   Chinese    girl   Oie   Gain,   the
lory   of   whose   abduction   into   the
Iidled States appeared in   The Miner
yesterday morning,   and   who  was
[turned   to her husband Wah   Chung
Monday by U. S. Customs Collector
' P. Hill, is still  suffering from   the
Jrdships experienced    ou   the    trip,
having beon forced   to wnlk a dis-
[uce of over 80 miles.    The intention
her   huslmnd   is   that iu a day  or
lo tbty   will   go  to Revolstoke  and
ter   settling   up   his   affairs   there,
by will   return to Nelson   to engage
\ business.
The old smuggler Wong Sang, who
tired prominently in the abduction
���Oie Gam has an exceedingly bad
lord in different parts of the west,
lh in the United States and Canada,
lie is a a particularly bright and indigent Chinaman, who has made

near. Wong escaped and was not
caught. Again at Sedro he was caught
in the act of smuggling Chinamen
across the border bnt again escaped.
He is however, caught now and it is
not likely that he will again be allowed to escape justice. Under the
Gearv act, the offence with which he
is charged is punishable by deportment to China, one year's imprisonment ��� in the States' prison or
both, at tho option of the custom's
officer. He is now in Mr. Hill's hands
and the probabilities are that the old
criminal will spend the next year at
hard labor in Doer Lodge prison, where
he will have ample time to meditate
over his past offences.
; As showing the desperate character
of Woiik Sang and his associates,
when arrested and searched by the
United States officers, each of "them
had a revolver and on the party were
found 60 rounds of ammunition. This,
judging from his previous record
Wong Sang would not have hesitated
to use had not the officers come upon
him suddenly, and he saw no chance
of escape.
The Chinamen in Nelson are greatly
pleased at his arrest as during his periodical visits to this city he has terrorized them with threats as to what
ho and the society of which ho appears
to be tho bond in British Coliuubia,
would do in case of their refusal to
assist him in his nefarious plots.

amount leaving his watch as security

Looking Well���Sketch of the
Work Done.
There is probably no mining camp
in British Columbia about wliich less
talking has been done, and which has
been less written about in the press
than the mining district in the vicinity of the little town of Erie. Nevertheless a large amount of development
work is being done, aud the camp is
going steadily ahead on its merits,
property owners in that vicinity preferring unlike miwy others, to work
rather than talk.
There is a large number of claims
staked right up the north fork of the
Salmon, and the following, which are
probably the best known, are being
steadily worked, and it is the intention of the owners to continue development through the winter. These properties are the Second Relief, the Arlington, the Big Bump, the North
Fork, the Jupiter and the Belle and
The Second Relief, belonging to A.
A. M. Campbell and John A. Finch,
is probably the star property of the
district so far. This mine which is"
about 18 miles up the north fork from
Erie, is being developed by threo tunnels, connected by winzes, and over
1200 feet of tunnelling has been done.
The ore is a copper sulphide in a
quartz gangue, running high in gold.
The average gold values of the lead,
which is of an "average width of 34
inches for 1200 feet, are $50 per ton.
About half of the gold can be recovered by milling, aud it is intended to
erect a stamp mill on the property, and
ship the tailings to the smelter.
There are about 1500 tons of this ore
on tlie dump ready for shipment,
which will be hauled to tho railroad as
soon as the snow falls. A wagon road
1!) miles in length hns recently been
constructed from Erie to the mine at
a cost of $16,000, $11,000 of which was
contributed by the government, the remainder of the expense being borne
by the owners of the mine.
The Arlington which is also on the
north fork of the Salmon river and
about three miles from Erie, belongs to
the Dewdney syndicate, nnd is being
developed by two shafts, which are
now down about 150 feet. There nre
five feot of ore at the bottom of the
shnffs oarrying average gold values of
i?7 per ton. The oompany hns installed a complete outfit of maohinery,
including a steam hoist, pumps and
other necessary appliances, They nre
now working three eight horn shifts,
nnil tho mine will ship oro as soon
as the snow comes. Tho oro in this
property is peculiarly ampnable fo
treatment, by the cyanide process,
aud it is tho intention of the management to install a cyanide plant in the
Another promising property in the
neighborhood is tho North Fork, about
0 miles from Erie. On this property,
whioh belongs to Messrs. Gilliam and
Benn, nbout $1000 has been expended,
chiefly in surface work such ns striping the vein and running open cuts.

The Sum of $986 Raised Among  Railway Employes.
Last     summer    a    Swede    named
Charles   Johnson    employed    on   the
j construction   contract of W. H.   Arm-
| strong on the Crow's Nest   Pass   railway lost  his eyesight through   an accident caused by a premature blast.
Mr. Armstrong gave him $1C0 to go
to Spokane for treatment but as nothing conld be done for him there he returned to Nelson and wns for a considerable time in the Kootenay Lake
General hospital. A few weeks ago
Mr. Armstrong suggested that he go
along the route of the Robson Penticton railway and solicit subscriptions
iu order to start him in some line of
business, heading the subscription list
with $100. Mr. G. L. Lennox secured
the services of Mr. 15. Carrick to accompany the blind man and Mr. Armstrong gave him $50 for expenses of
the trip.
The proceeds of the trip amounted
to $0H6, which sum was handed over
by Mr. Carrick to the police magistrate at Grand Forks, on their arrival
in that town. The response of the
men employed along the line of construction to the appoal of their fellow
workman was very generous and the
money so raised will be devoted to the
purpose for which it was intended.
Victoria, Oct. 25.���This morning
the motions to strike ont the Victoria,
Comox and North Nanaimo petitions
came before Judge Martin in chambers. The points raised were the
same as those in the Esquimalt caso
now under consideration, except that
in these cases the $2000 security wns
deposited with the registrar of the
court. Mr. Cassidy argued that under the rules this money should have
been deposited in the Bank of England. His lordship refused to uphold
that objection and decision on the
other points was reserved.
Slocan   Property   That  Has
Millions in Dividends.
For nearly two years past the Payne
mine near Sandon has shipped an
average of 58 tons of its valuable ore
daily. After deducting freight, duty
and smelter charges this nets the
owners over $S0 por ton or $4640 per
day. There are now employed ;at the
mine about 125 meu and it is a liberal
average to allow the wages paid to be
$4 per day or $500 for the whole force.
From this it will be seen that the
mine is paying a'profit of $4140 per
day, including Sundays and holidays.
Taking the diily net iucome as a
basis, it will bo seen that the mine is
yielding a profit of nearly $125,1)00
monthly or about $1,500,000 annually.
The report of the department of mines
for the year 1897, stated, as published
in The Miner, that the mine had paid
iu dividends up to December 81, the
sum    of   $1,800,000.     Taking   these
