Nelson, Sept.  16, 1898.
John Houston, Esq.,
Mayor, Nelson.
Sir���Your lotter of   the 18th instant
received, and iu  reply   I have to  say
1 that  I cannot   comply   with  your re-
j quest at present.
I consider that I have been treated
in a shameful manner, and that un-
I less a settlement of all matters be-
I tween the council and myself can be
effected, it will be in tbo best interests
I of tbe citizens and myself that tho
I whole facts should be aired in court.
I have been tried and condemned by
[your august tribunal in the dark, upou
fidse evidence, aud without a hearing.
I have rendered my bill of costs covering more than tho amount in my
bauds, and have asked for thoir taxation, but so far have received no
acknowledgment or notico whatever
iu regard thereto.
I am ready and anxious to band over
all papers aud money upon settlement
of my claim, and am also ready to
answer for my eouduct in all matters
entrusted to nie, and let the peoplo say
who has acted iu Uio best interests of
the city,aud who has not, and whether
a man "who pays more taxes than any
[member of fbe council, and more than
everal of them put together, is likely
o have the city's interest at heart or
I will go further and now offer to
land over all the papers and a marked
���heipie to the city's legal advisors,
to he hold by thom until my bills are
;iaxod and paid, if such will be undertaken without delay, as there has already been ample time to have bad
this ('one. Yours truly.
The abovo letter provoked  consider-
ible adverse comment, and Aid. Hillyer
characterized  it   as  a  disgrace.    The
iuiayor said that  Mr. Elliot   had acted
vithout authorization in   putting   the
'money to his credit at  tho  bank, and
hat   tho   Aldermen   had  contributed
;moro   money   towards   public   events
than all the lawyers in the city.
Aid. Gilker was  in  favor of aocept-
ugjtbo offer of a marked cheque to be
ilaced in their representative's bands,
nit the  rest of  the council opposed
his, and, after  somo  further  discus-
jioh, the matter dropped.
The question of the arrears of the
���lectric light and water dues was then
'aken up. tho mayor stating that the
���evenue from tbo electric light plant
for August was $907.40, with arrears
amounting to $898.65. Tho revenue
from the. water works system amounted
to $458. 95 for tho same time, the total
arrears up to August 31 being $014. It
was agree to notify those in arrears
that, if such arrears were not cleared

Interview With the Russian
Madrid, Sept. 19.���There is eousid-

there weree 13 deaths during the voy-
BgQ among tho 1000 Spanish soldiers
who bave just arrived in Spain on
board tho Spanish transport San
Ignacio de Loyola, from Santiago de
Cuba. The Spaniards attribute this
heavy death rate to the inhumanity of
tho Americans in obliging the sick
Spaniards to embark to make room in
tho hospitals for Americans.
Alleged Murder at Colville���Hii  Friends
Wish an    Investigation   to
be   Held.
The subjoined communication was
received at Tbo Miner oflice last night,
aud there has beeu neither time nor
opportunity to investigate the very
serious charges therein contained. It
bas beon thought advisable, howover,
to print the communication as it was
received, withholding for the present
tho name of the writer.
As the dead man was a British subject, the attention of tbo authorities is
drawu to the letter. In the interests
of justico it is imperative that the
truth or falsity of sucb terrible allegations should be established.
Colville, Wash., Sept. 17, 1898.
To the Editor of The Miner,
Nelson, B. O.
Sir:���You have seen the account of
Tommy Whitehead's death. Well, I
want you to know tho truth of it.
In the first place, Tommy wus very
much under tbe influence of whiskey.
On tho 22nd of August he was in a
cabin with another prospector eating
dinner,when two deputies rode up, and
never said, "halt," and shot him in
tho mouth.
Tbey claim he shot himself, but the
man D. Fisher, says he does not know
whieh ono did, but he thinks Wright
did it.
The revolver Tommy had would not
do the work that was dono. The bull
came out ut tho buck of the head.
Tliey would not have un inquest, and
did everything to bide tlieir guilt.
They sent Julius Sacker to Seattle to
ship on a vessel so as to be out of
reach if wanted. There was no powder
bum on his dear fuce. Oh ! I beg of
you to try und bring them to justice.
Tommy came from Seaton, Workington. Cumbrolaud, England. His
brother William Whitehead lives tbere
and his sister also, a Mrs. Isabel Collins.    His brother is very wealthy.
Pleaso try and havo tho government
to take it up.
Pleuse do not give my name until wo
soe what (tan bo dono witb them, as
they do uot waut the truth to come
out on them.
I remain yours respectfully,
Mudrid, Sept. 19.���Tho Publica
Piliana asserts that an attempt was
made to poison Aguinaldo on Priday
night. A steward, it is added, saw a
Spanish prisoner, who had been allowed his freedom, mnko a movement
which appeared like tampering with
a bowl ot soup intended for Aguinaldo. whereupon the steward tasted a
spoonful of the soup aud fell dead.
Eleven Franciscan friars are alleged to
have been engaged in the work. Tho
people, it is further stated, attempted
to lynch all the Spanish prisoners, but
Aguinaldo intervened.
At Suturday's session of the National Assembly, it appears, Aguinaldo was absent, but his representative
related the story of tbe outrage to the
members, wbo unanimously adopted
the chairman's proposal that they all
go to Aguinaldo's bouse, express
sympathy witb him aud congratulate
him upon bis escape. During the
evening, a special thanksgiving ser-
vico wus held iu the church ut Mal-
olos. Food intended for Aguinaldo is
now subject to a chemical analysis before beiug presented to the insurgent
lender, und the Spanish prisoners are
kept closely confined.
London, Sept. 20���The Hong Kong
correspondent of the Daily Mail  says:
"The Filipino congress bus favorably
received tbe Europeans who have witnessed the procedings. It is believed
thut the deliberations will result in a
petition to President McKinley to establish a protectorate. The attitude
of the American army ollicers towards
tbe insurgents is causing much unfavorable criticism among Europeans
who have returned from Manila. They
blame their almost criminal ignorance of the native character and their
elementary ideas of colonizing. The
officers seem determined upou wining glory at the expeuso of the insurgents by hatching imaginary revolts. Aguiualdo bas obeyed every
order, whether accompanied by threats
or not. A British naval officer, who
bus just* returned from Manila, says :
"What is needed is a force acquainted with   the Asiatic   character.

New York, Sept. 19.���Kid McCoy
bus refused to hold uny further conferences with Corbett and his manager
relative to ohangeof Hut dale und place
of his meeting with Corbett. He was
not present at a meeting whieh had
been arranged for today ut George
Considine's at noon, but instead sent
a letter. All the pugilistic, celebrities
in town, including Corbett and
Sharky. were on band. Following is
the letter from McCoy :
"George Considine, manager of
Juinen J. Corbett:
"Dear Sir:���I did not think it necessary to meet yon or Corbett according
to the date which was publislied in
the daily prints. I bave been notified
through my manager William Gray,
that the Hawthorne Athletic club,
Buffullo, will pull off tho proposed
contest between Corbett and myself,
wliich litis beeu set for October 15.
Therefore, I do not see any ueed of
meeting Mr. Corbett or yourself this
afternoon. Very Respectfully vours,
The letter was very unsatisfactory
to Mr. Considine. He tliinks that McCoy is tryiug to get out of the con tost
and insists on Buffalo when he knows
thut. the battle cannot take place
there. McCoy could uot be found this
The Diplomat Says He .Never Heard
a Project of Intervention in the
Spanish War.
America does not seem to utilize tho
material she has at hand. Everv one
is surprised that O. F. Williams,
TJuited States consul at Manila, was
not sent to Paris, instead of officers
who know little of the Phillippines.
I am satisfied tbat if Consul General
Wildman, who has lived among tho
Malays and is familiar with British
colonization, were givon power, ho
could urrango everything satisfactorily.
It is suicidal folly on tho part of
America that he litis not been ordered
to Manila long ugo."
Washington, Sept. 19.��� It is tbe
present intention of the administration to send to Cuba a garrison for the
island of about 450,000 troops, in addition to tho forco now in Santiago
under command of General Lawton.
The organizations which aro to compose tho Cuban garrison havo
uot all been designated yet. but
it is assured that at least half of them
will be volunteers. Within two weeks
orders will be issued lor tho movement
to Cuba of the first 10,0110 of the permanent garrison und, it is expected
now, tbat they will sail from (he
United States about October I. These
troops will be followed quickly brothers until tint entire force of 40,000
havo been established on Ihe island.
Havana, Sept. 19.���On tho Spanish
mail steamer Alfonso XIII, which is
to sail tomorrow, will go over 1200
passengers, mostly Ute wives and children of army officials. Advices from
Puerto Principe report that the Cuban
troops ure not observing the requirements of the armistice, but ure steul-

Ottawa, Sept. 19.���Hon. Clifford
Sifton. and Mr. James Sutherland
reached Ottawa today from the west.
Both expressed themselves as much
impressed with the evidence of territorial prosperity which they observed
everywhere. Sutherland wus enabled
to make comparison between existing
conditions nud those of 1894, wben
he travelled through Manitoba and

heard with pleasure the testimony of
the people, who speak hopefully of the

west sutisfuctory.
London, Sept. 19.���Tho British
steamer Milwaukee, Captain Williams,
from Tyue, for New Orleans, previously reported stranded at Portes Roll,
Scotland, Sept. 10, has reached a
critical condition. Her stern rises
and fulls with the tido, straining and
buckling the decks. A hole through
the bottom into No. 2 hold extends 80
feet in length, whilo the damage is increasing aud a heavy sea adds to the
danger of her breaking up. The coal

St. Johns, Nfld. Sept. 19.���The British Royal commission to enquire into
he French shore question started toOay
for a cruise along the troaty coast.
The colonial government has scored a
signal victory by inducing the commissioners to accept tho co-operation of
the colonies representative, Receiver
General Morine. The commission did
uot wish to havo the colonial officer
accompany tbem, but tho colouial
ministers insisted that their representative should go in order that the
settlers case should bo fairly placed.
St. Petersburg, Sept. 19. ���The Novoo
Vremya warmly supports France iu
holding Fashoda. It thinks that England will accept the inevitable, as
usual, when sbe is met with proper resistence. Slut is now attempting intimidation, which is predestined to
fail. It adds, "If Mttjor Marchand
refuses to leave Fashoda, there is only
one power that has the right* to declare
war against France, namely, thn
Suzerain of Egypt, Sultau Abdul
Hamid. "
Hartford, Sept. 19.���A special to tho
Times from Narragansett Pier, gives
an interview with Count Cassiui, the
Russian ambassador, in which he
says: "There has been absolutely no
change in Russian sentiment or policy
toward the United States, nor docs
there exist a reason for such a change
within my knowledge. Russian policy
does not conflict with the interest of
the United States in any part of the
world, no more in China than in England. Russia seeks ouly peacetul and
friendly relations with all other nations. "
The correspondent reminded the
Russian ambassador that the American
peoplo were asked by English writers
to believe that the continental powers
had sought to arrange a project for
international iuterveutiou iu behalf of
Spain in tno recent war aud that tbis
plan of action had been defeated bribe refusal of Great Britain to be a
parry to it, or even consent to see
otber powers engage in it, thereby placing this country under a new aud
special obligation to the British people. "I never heard that thero was
such a proposition by any of tbe powers. They coutiuually maintained
their neutrality throughout the eutire
war between the Uuited States and
Coming to tbo question of Russia's
development in tne Out;, t. Count Cas-
sini said in building the Siberia railroad it was found that ibe routo necessary to be followed in reaching
Vladivostock was a very difficulty one, made so especially by the
existenco of a stretch of almost impassable marshes. The engineering
problems presented by that route were
practically insurmountable." We also
found that it was absolutely necessary
to cross Cbineso Manchuria in order to
obtain nn ice-free port, which was
essentinl to ennble the railroad to be a
commercially successful enterprise.
Our Pacific port of Vladivostock ou
the Siberian coast is closed by ice
during the winter months. Wo are
not building a railroad simply for the
purpose of laying steel rails, or for the
fun of the thing, lt must havo traffic
when it is built in order to justify the
investment aud we sought a terminus
to the southward, where tho ships of
all nations could como at all seasons
of the year. We obtained from the
Chinese government a lease of territory for a term of years, like the
lease of Kiao Chou by tbo Germans
aud Wi Hai Wei by tbe British. In
making tho arraugemeut we were not
animated by hostile purposes towards
any other power. Tbo only suro and
certain revenue which the Chinese
government possesses is their maritime customs aud a portion of those
were pledged for tho payment of our
loan to China. The administratiou of
the maritime customs is iu tho bauds
of au Englishman, Sir Robert Hart,
but wo did not undertake to remove
or disturb Sir Robert, Wo are represented as hostile to tho interests of
other nations in China, but we bave
not objected to or sought to prevent
other nations from increasing their
commercial privileges. Furthermore,
it should bo remembered that Russia
and China have a common boundary
of some 0000 miles in extent, so thut
we have a national relation to China
exceeding that of tiny other powor.

The resolution of the Presbytery,
adopted at the meeting bere lust week,
dealing With Sunday labor, was a
sensible and timely utterance. Although there hns been marked improvement within the past Iwo yenrs,
tbere is still much disrespect shown to
Sunday observance in this province.
This is in a measure accounted for by
our contiguity to the Western states
where little respect is shown to anything. The heterogeneous population
of that country gathered from foreign
binds where Sunday, being comparatively unknown, is jnst like uny other
should bo filed by a busiueeB man
familiar with British Columbia. He
should roceivo $2500 or $3000 a year
with another $1000 a year added for

Nelson Wins the Hub and Hub���Great
Dissatisfaction Prevails.
In the hose reel races yesterday at

luck iu the wet test. Tbey mado tho
fastest timo of auy to the hydrant,
but shortly before reaching it Perrier
slipped and fell, being dragged 30 or 40
feet, thus Nelson had perforce to give
up the race.
The representatives of Nelson, Kaslo,
Trail and Rossland competed, Ross-
laud running last. Great dissatisfaction was expressed at the fact that
while the other teams found a low
pressure and experienced some difficulty in getting water, when Ross-
land's turn camo tho water rushed
through tho hose, thus giving them
considerable advautago. Their time
was 29 4-6 seconds.
The Trail team wero so sore that
they declined to oompeto in the hub

race Rossland at Trail   for any money.
In the hub and hub race Nelson won

! Notes Jf tlie Way.
"As  un   instance of  cheap   travelling.." said   Mr. D.   R. Wilkie, it the
Imperial Bunk, in after-dinner talk at
Ithe Hume,   "Iwas   standing   on the
! railway platform at Revelstoke when a
j man came up to the person to whom I
Was   talking*  and  handing him tt rail-
j way ticket saiu'You   can have   that.'
i'l don't  want it',   answered   my  uc-
qtiaintenoe.    'Neither  do I,' answered
the man.    'This   is   where   I stop and
anvoue wishing a  ticket to go farther
can  have   it.'   The ticket turned  out
to be ono from Seattle to   St. Paul and
it had cost  the  purchaser $10.    What,
became of   it   I dou't   know.    Bnt   it
was a cheap trip, wasn't it. "
* *   *
What about the electric car line?
Auy prospect of its being built soon?
* *   *
"I came down the river to Robson
on tho Rossland a week ago." said a
travelling man at tint Hume on Saturday night. "Late in the afternoon we
pulled up at a place called Brooklyn,
ono of those settlements that spring np
during railway construction and sometimes beoome a permanency and sometimes don't. Among the deck passengers woro a number of railway
navies bound for that point to work on
tho railway. They wero pretty well
supplied with liquor, some having
bottles half full with the other half
obviously stirring them up, internally.
Some of thom forgot to get off at
Brooklyn and raised such a row wheu
the steamer hauled out, that it was
deemed expedient in tho interests of
peaco to run her against the bank
further down. They till got off safely,
for it is a saying that Providence
watches over wee bairnies and drunken
men, but the last one moving tardily,
the boatmen tilted the gang plank to
mako him hurry. He shot down towards the beach, but strange to say
landed ou his feet, and turning around
he poured out a string of profanity
which would have made Hades howl;
then he opened on the crew with expressions which called their parentage
into qusetion and oast doubts upon
their legitimacy. It was dreadful.
Then he lifted his hat to the. captain
iu the pilot house and cried, 'But I
thank you, Captain, for letting nie
off'. The place for tho missionaries
seems to be out in the construction
camps, not iu Africa or China or
cities where order is kopt. "

"When I got aboard the train at
Vancouver the other day," said a
gentleman at the Phair yesterday
"I asked tho porter on the sleeper to
give mo a berth. ' I can give you au
upper, sir,' ho answered, ' but all the
lowers are reserved until wc pass the
Mission. Yon know, wo meet, the
Seattle train thoro and we- don't let no
lower berths until we see what comes
off her'. I object to this arrangement.
Why should travellers out of Vancouver, who pay as much for a ticket
to Nelson as Seattle peoplo pay to New
York have to take upper berths while
these cheap raters from Seattlo crawl
into comfortable lowers. Something
ought to be written about it in the
papers so that Mr. Shaughnessy may
kuow that this is a differential about
which tho publio havo a right to

Mr. William Tiernay, railway contractor, says that the Crow's Nest

Gentlemen : My acceptance of a seat

has vacated the seat in the provincial
legislature formerly held by myself as
your representative iu Unit body.
I now beg leavo to offer myself as a
candidate for re-election.
Although it is but a short time since
you honored nie by electing me as your
representative, and I have every reason
to believe that my action in aocepting
office has your approval, 1 regret, that
the duties of office have prevented nie
from meeting you and personally asking you for the renewal of that support wliich you have been kind enough
to extend to' ine during lint past four
The department of mines, which,
with the oflice of provinoial secretary,
Hon. Mr. Semlin has entrusted to my
care, is a most important one, particularly to the mining sections of the
province,of which Nelson riding forms
so important a part, as by the careful
administration of this department the
welfare of this and other mining districts may be greatly benefitted.
I appeal, therefore, for your support
as a member of the new government,
which I am convinced, with the support of the electors throughout the
province, will be able to do much to
promote tho general welfare of the
province and enable it to assert its position as tho most prosperous of all the
provinces in the Dominion.

C ininiission, whieh is tu begin tomorrow, will continue only until about

the anxiety. He told Senator Faulkner today, that he was desirous of
facilitating the commission's labor to
as great an extent as possible and
dwelt on the importance to both
countries of arriving at an early settlement of tho differences which have
arisen bewteen them. Thero aro 15

Never Stronger Thau Now.
Ottawa, Sept. I'.l.���Sir Charles
Tupper is in Ottawa. Tomorrow morning lie will leave for Montreal to sail
with Lady Tupper on Tuesday on the
Oalifomiau for Liverpool. Sir Charles
describes his reception in the maritime provinces as most flattering. The
conservative party, Ittt said, was never
stronger than it is today. Asked what
effect the actions 'of conservatives in
coming out squarely on party lines in
New Brunswick provincial politics
would have, he said, it will be the
moans of overturning the provinoial
government and carrying the province
solidly for the conservative purty ttt
the next general election, lie declared
that if the election were to take placo
tomorrow, uot one of tho ministers
would be returned from the maritime
provinces. Sir Charles denied that in
stumping the country, he had gone
back on his promise not to discuss
issues now pending before the Quebec
Asked as to his probable stay in the
old country, Sir Charles replied that
it would depend altogether on circumstances, "but" he added, significantly,
"I shall bs back in time for anything
important that may transpire to require my presence in Canada."
How Things are Looking in the Kettle
River District���Whitewater.
J. Roderick Robertson, manager of
the London and B. C. Goldfields has
returned to Nelson after an absence of
about four weeks.
In conversation with a Miner reporter, Mr. Robertson stated that the
greater part of this time had beeu
spent in the. Kettle rivez district. He
had gono in by stage from Bcs-tburg,
and made his way to Greenwood city,
in the vicinity of whieh are some
claims owned by his company.
The Boundary country seemed to be
enjoying a season of prosperity, both
miners and farmers doing well. There
was it good deal of building going on
in Cascade City, and in Greenwood
City there were also several houses
going up.
Mr. Robertson (tame out by way of
Vernon and Penticton, and on his arrival in Nelson went immediately to

Duke of  Norfolk  Puts   the  Credit of
Penny  Postage' Whero It Belongs.
Toronto, Sept. li).���Following is a
special cable to the Evening Telegram,
dated London, Sept. Ill:
The Duke of Norfolk, postmaster
general in the Imperial cabinet, spoko
at Lythain, Lancashire, on Saturday,
devoting samo time to the question of
Imperial penny postage. He said that
Imperial postage was due to the pro
gressivo spirit of Canada and it would
bo unfair to Hon. William Muloek,
Canada's postmaster general, if J.
Henniker Heaton, M. P., ditl not tit
ouce shift from his shoulders any
merit earned by his Canadian brother.
On   Privato   Business���Story   of    the
Wreck of thc Stiekine Chief.
John A. Mara, ex-M. P., for Yale-
Kooteuay, and who is tit present
largely interested in Nelson realty is
in the city on a business visit. To a
Miner representative Mr. Mara stated
that his visit to the cily was not in
any way connected with politics but
was solely on private business. He
noted a great change in Hit! appear*
mice of the city since his last visit
here about four months ago and expressed 1 itnself as especially pleased
with tho substantial character of the
buildings now in course of erection.
Mr. Mara was the owner of the
steamer Stiekine Chief and was on
board that ill-fated vessel when she ond
tho Mono were wrecked on the voyage
to Alaska. The story of the wreck and
tho rescue of the crew is as follows :
Both steamers were taken in tow at
Wrangel by the Steamer Fashnet, (hat
place being left on July 33, Shortly
after leaving port, dirty weather was
encountered, and Uut four strand hawser by whieh the Mono was being
towed was snapped like a thread. The
Stiekine Chief was towed to what was
considered a safe anchorage near
Bushy island. The Fashnet thon returned to tho Mono and fouud that
vessel ou the rocks, a complete wreck.
Tho crew of the Mono wero taken on
board and tho Fashnet returned to
pick up  tho Stiekine Chief.   The lat-

Supporters ofthe Local Prohibiten" Movement Deliver Powerful Addresses
on the Subject.
At the prohibition meetiug last
night in the Salvation army barracks,
Mr. Coxhead was in the chair, the
first speaker being Mr. Reed, who announced himself a native of Frederick-
ton. N. B.
Mr. Reed iu the course of a long
speech reviewed at considerable length
arguments advanced by those opposed to
prohibition, ond quoted a great many
statistics in support of his position.
He did not consider that the question
of supplying the deficit in the revenue
was any business of the prohibitionists, and quoted Sir Leonard Tiliey and
Mr. Gladstone iu support of his contention that thero was no cause for
fear in that respect as it had boen repeatedly shown that prohibition did
not decrease the revenue. It would be
tt good thing for labor if the manufacture of liquor was abolished, as that
industry employed less men in proportion to the capital invested than any
other. Ho gavo figures to show that
prohibition was invariably attended
liy a decrease in crime. They had had
prohibition in Fredericton for 20
years, and though the Scott Act was
miserably enforced tho people would
never give it. up. Tho wealthy liquor
dealers had a political pull and still
so)d liquor. Thero is no law ou the
statute book that cau be so easily and
readily enforced as a prohibitory liquor
law. If a man steals, ho may put the
article in his pocket and none bo tie
wiser, if a man takes a drink he cannot hide it. He is betrayed by hig
breath or his gait or iu some other
He had not much to say on the question of tampering with the subject's
liberty, but there was no slave like tho
slave of his appetites.
Mr. Williamson was tho next
speaker, aud he was much pained i.t
tliu utterances of a local business man
which hit had seen in the daily paper,
whieh was to the effect that prohibition was only good for women and
children. He went ou to say that
liquor dealers were not the friends of
the people. They mado men drunk
nntl then kicked theni ont. The best
journalists anil blacksmiths wero total
abstainers, Drink was a curso nud
robbed the country.
The Rev. Mr. Robson regretted that
he had had no opportunity tor preparation, The local press appeared to
lean to (he liquor sido of tho fence,
but took no definited staud. He wished
they would. The present license laws
nre kept by no one. In tho Irish
famine year, when the breweries and
saloons were closed, the revenue was
greater than the previous year with
good crops and open saloons. The
liquor license law- now forced on us
hurts tho public health, and is therefore illegal. Saloons were the places
I where nefarious plots of all kinds were
! batched.
The chairman   then   announced That
ti collection would be taken up and appealed to the liberality of those present.
j He also stated   that prohibition literature would be distributed nt the door.
The meeting then closed.
