TERRIFIED PASSENGERS.
Falling  Trees  Nearly Cause nn Accident to a   0. P. B. Train.
The pasangom on tbe 0. P. R. train'
had a elose call nn Tuesday evening
coming in from Three Forks. Owing
to tbe unusually high wind, trees
were falling on either side of the train
all tbe way in from New Denver, bnt
when Three Forks was passed, as the
gale increased tho danger 'became intensified with the trees cracking and
falling in J every direction. After
passing the trestle, a mile and a half
out, a tree fell nearly parallel with
the train smashing the one side of
the passenger coach in the vicinity pf
the window almost its entire length.
The stampede of the terrified * passengers was .confusion worse qonfounded
bnt fortunately beyond a severely out
hand for tbe conductor no further harm
was done. It took some time for. the
passengers to realize they were ont of
danger, but in due course the train
reached the depot with the badly damaged oar.���Sandon Mining Review.
HEINZE VS. C.P. 11.
The Smelter Han  Will   Suo  the  Big
Rail war Company.
A despatch from Montreal states
that the arrival there of Mr. Fitzgerald
of Trail, the representative at that
place of F. August Heinze's interests,
is tbe first step in a big law spit
which the former magnate of Trail
will enter against tbe Canadian Pacific
railway. It is stated that the services
of McMaster & Maolennan, advocates,
have been secured, and tbnt the suit
will be for (100,000, which is the alleged value of personal property at
the smelter which he claims lie never
intended to transfer to the C. P. lt.
but which   that corporation took and
holds in spite of his protest. The
C. P. R people claim that they bought
everything in sight and paid $800,000
in cash for all of Mr. Heinzo's smolter
and railway possessions in the Kootenav town.
The exact nature of the personal
effects which Mr. Heinze values so
highly and for which he seels reninr*
eration is not stated. Tbe expectation
in Montreal is thut the case will develop iuto a rather sensational suit.    J
Mr. Hinze's penchant for law suits
is well known. It is snid to be doubtful if oven he cni at this time toll
without consulting his attorneys tho
number of suits be hns in tbe Butte
conrts in which he is either' the defendant or plaintiff either iu person or
through some of his numerous corporations. Yet lawsuits do not seem to
make bim poor. His companies Are
reputed to be among tbe most profitable
in Bntte.

��� :-W MINNESOTA.
St. PqjuiV Minn., N6v. 7.-A fairly
quiet ciniipaign ended in tbis state tonight, with probably as much uncertainty in the outlook as has ever been
known in Minnesota. The democrats, with Jobn Lind, silver republican, endorsed further by tbe populists
as a gubernatorial candidate, have,
by keeping closely to state issues,
sought ito unite nil' factions*, and are
very confident as to the result. While
conceding that the legislature which
will elect Senator Davis, successor,
the senate also participating in the
election two years henoe of a successor
to Senator Nelson, will be republican, 0." -A. Rosing, democratic chairman, claims that' Lind will be electod
bv from 15,000 lo 20,000. He also
claims three and possibly four of tbe
seven Congressmen   and   all three  su-
Cme ' bburt judges. On the "other
id, republican chairman ' Steel
claims everything, but gives no figures, while other republican leaders
believe Eustis will be elected govornor
by ten to fifteen thousand majority.

' rooatod in England.
Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 7.���The
Rt. Hon Lord' Herschell,' chairman
of the. joint. international commission
is in thej city, a gnest of Senator
Fairbanks.- ' He was asked if, in his
opinion,' the era of good feeling between England and this country had
arrived and as to tbe depth of the feeling.
"Whatever is felt here," was the
reply,. " is quite reciprocated on the
other side;' I think, perhaps, you people of the states are more demonstrative than we. The only thing thnt has
held our people back from a great demonstration of tliii-1 sentiment is the
fear tbat the matter is being pushed
rather than allowed to develop of itself. "
Ho was asked if he thought the
strained relations between England
and Russia would result in war.
"I do not consider tbat conditions
are clangorous. My personal belief is
that the. czar is really desirous* of

BUTCHERED INHISBUNK
The Murderer Fled aad Wob Found Dead
���  . in the Woods, Evidently of
Heart Failure.
Victoria, Nov. 7.���A brutal murder
was discovered at Saanich this morning and there is every reason to believe that the murderer was the man,
hitherto unidentified, whose remains
v,"ere found in the woods near Esquimau several days ago, aud now snid to
be those of one William Hammond,
formerly of the navy. His victim was
Henry Eminond Smith, sou of Henry
Smith, wbo keeps a grocery store nt
the corner of Government and John
streets. The young man went out to
Saanich on the 20th of October, tho
day following his 26th birthduy. He
bad not since been heard from, so this
morning his father went out to visit
at his cabin at Saanich. Finding tho
place locked up, the father burst open
the cnbin door nud found tho liody
tightly wedged under tbe bunk. The
bedclothes iu n heap on tho floor
showed that thoy were hurriedly torn
awny by the murderer just beforo he
���WUUg Iho nxe, which almost severed
young Smith's bend. Tho gold watch
banging up on tho nail und the undisturbed oonteuts of the cnbiu told
that robbery was not the object of the
murderer whoso motive wnB probably
hatred of the Smiths. The murderer
must have sprung upon liis victim ns
he slept. The ranch upon which the
murder, was done formerly bolongod to
Hammond, wbo wns indebted to
Smith nud a short time ago nn arrangement, waB made whereby in consideration of the liquidation of tho
debt and the payment of a certain sum
to Hammond, the rauoh reverted to
Smith. Hammond, wbo was formerly
a bluejacket attached to one of tho
vessels of the Esquimalt statiou, was
allowed to live in the cabin. He was
au illiterate man, and could neither
read uor writo. For many years past,
since he received his discharge trom
Her Majesty's service, he wandered
nbout the province, railroading and
steainbonting nud mining. He returned to Bnanich ubout 18 months
ago. having come down from Ynlo
in a small canoe, which he exhibited
to nil he knew and told of his  voyage.
Meu who knew HaninioucT, today
identified ns his, the remains found iu
the wopds nenr Esgnimnlt a week ngo.
He hnd died from henrt failure, the
coroner's jury said, while wandering
through the woods. He hnd probnbly
been torn with fears of capture nud
visions of retribution and his mental
nnguieb hud brought on the disease
whieh killed him. When the remains
of the ninrderor wero found, they were
lying on the buck with mouth wide
open nud tho fentures distorted, showing thnt the murderer hnd died in
great agony. Hammond, when death
overtook him, hnd f 1)4.50 in his pocket
a box of priming enps and a flask hnlf
full of whiskey. He wns buried on
Wednesdny.

anil Frauce received fresh impetus yesterday by tlio action of Englnnd, who
purchased n large amount of American
coid for immediate delivery nt her

Halifax wns defective. He wan Bur-
prised to learn thnt the facilities for

of trouble nrisiug wore of the meanest
chnrncter. Iu this respect the Imperial nuthorities had sadly neglected
Hnlifnx. Thero ware no suitable
vessels in Hnlifax and those supplied
by tho Imperial authorities are little
better than worthless. The reason
tho war ships Pelican and Cordelia
were loaded with ammunition nnd dispatched from Halifux is this. About
this time of vear, British and French
vessclH cm the fisheries protection service retire, but tho Frenchmen have
remained on the Newfoundland coast
and, in case of hostilities arising, tbo

Death of Mrs Langworthy at
Paris.
THE HUSBAND SUICIDES
The Woman Was Mildred Long, Who Was
Deoeived Iby a Sham Marriage, Bnt
Stead Got Justice For Her.
London, Nov. 7.���The famous Lang,,
worthy case, which caused a great
sensation in England in 1887, has .been
revived by the death of Mrs. Lang-
worthy and the suicide of her husband in the Grand hotel in Paris. The
wife was the heroine of the extraordinary proceedings which William T.
Stead, to whom she appealed, exposed
in tbe Pall Mali Gazette. Her maiden
name was Mildred Long, and sbe was
a teacher in Pnris when she met Lang-
worthy, a wealthy widower who had
inherited ��150,000 and to whom the
denth of bis mother and aunt menut
an immense heritage. His flrst wife
was a sister of thn Earl of Limerick.
Langworthy met Miss Long iu 1882
and married bor secretly in a Catholic
church at Caen. He afterwards went
to South Amorica in his own steam
yacht, the Metoor. Ho constantly ill-
treated his wife and when ho learned
sho was in a delicate condition of
health, be separated from ber at
Buenos Ayres, declaring their marriage a sham. Thereupon, Mrs. Langworthy returned to her father and began proceedings against her husband,
who declared there had been no lawful marriage between tbem. The divorce court was obliged to decide
tbat the iptfr-atga was invalid, hut
granted her niijuouy to the amount
of ��1200 a year, which was not paid,
as her husband fled from the   country.
Eventually Mrs. Langworthy became
almost penniless, and, in despair, was
contemplating suicido, whon sho saw
Mr. Stead, who warmly championed
her cause in the Pall Mall Gazette, of
which ho was then tho editor. All
London became interested in Mrs.
Langworthy's story nnd subscriptions
flowed in for her assistance. She
then brought action for breach of promise of marriage against Mr. Langworthy, whicli was settled by the payment to her of ��20,000 and the granting of ��500 yearly to her child Gladys.
The parties after that disappeared
from public view until the tragedy at
the Grand hotel where Langworthy
recently committed suicide. He had
apparently beeu reconciled to his wife,
who died shortly beforo ho destroyed
himself. Langworthy left a letter in
which he said he committed suicide
on account of his wife's doath.

��� majority of 13,000. The premier is
not likely to touch the] matter again.
He has had a dreadfnl fright already
and only Quebec saved him from disaster and it is not likely that the would
endanger his government merely to
please the prohibitionists, who certainly cannot claim a popular majority seeing that the number of electors
who voted upon the subject was extremely small. The prohibitionists
would do well to let the matter rest
for a time and in the interval to mobilize their forces. If they at any
time can show that the peoplo as a
whole are with them, they will secure
what they seek. It would be rather
one-sided legislation to insist upon
prohibition in tbe English provinces
and let Qnebeo continue the traffic in
liquor as of yore. But your thorough
paced prohibitionist is nothing if he
be not arbitrary. Doubtless the government thinks itself very fortunate in
escaping, even so narrowly, from a
great dilemma nnd tbere will be two
moons in the sky before they are
found again flirting with a question
whioh is not one for legislative bnt for
individual action. Politics are complicated enough without the introduction of matters which would lay the
oountrv by the enrs nnd do irrepar-
nble harm.
The despatches continue to tell of
the extraordinary activity of the British naval authorities. Tbe latest is
that immense quantities of coal bave
been ordered in the United States for
delivery in the West Indies islands
and ship brokers at New York and
Philadelphia have been busy for days
past in securing tonnage to meet tbe
order. The coal will be immediately
shipped fiom Philadelphia and Newport News to Jamiaca and St. Luoia,
a portion of the order going to Bermuda and a large quantity to Demur -
ara, or what is commonly known as
British Guiana.
From the other side of the world
comes the information thnt several
vessels of the Pacifio fleet are taking
on coal and munitions of war at Hong
Eong, where the utmost aotivity prevails in the naval department. The
first olass cruiser Powerful has two
thousand tons ot ooal in her bunkers
and all war ships. coming in are im
mediately equipped for sea again.
It is plainly evident that Great  Britain will brook no   denial   of   ber de
mands in Egypt on the part of Frauce
and will go into  action fully prepared
to enforce ber policy in tbat   country.
If Russia espouses tbe cause ot
France then Britain will meet them
botb and it will go hard if she does
not. overcome them. Tbere never was
a time in her history when Great
Britain waa so well prepared for war
as now. She has an immense fleet,
enormous supplies of coal and unlim
ited money, and behind all stand the
nation at home and in the colonies
grimly approving of the attitude ot
Lord Salisbury, and fearing not the
batt'9 a- the issue. There will be no
flinching if tbe hour of trial come,
nor need there be any fear that those
who have been invincible in the field
of war hitherto will ever be over-
turned\by the inferior *aoes of Europe.
THE BITTNER   THEATRE OO.
Extract from an article in tbe Victoria Colonist anent the character of
the political contest, now in progress
in the neighboring stato of Washington: "The congressional aud state
elections are now on there nnd the air
is lurid With journalistic and oratorical pyroteobnics." The word "lurid"
is used inthe sense of" red" or "fiery"
evidently. Then tho Colonist proceeds: "The English language is being badly strained," etc. We should
say ao.
ON HIS LAST LEGS.
Within the next few months the
Saltan and the Ottoman power may
disappear. When, mnny years ago
Bishop Newton wrote his dissertation
on tbe Prophecies he asserted that the
reference in Daniel to the drying up
of the Euphrates that the way of the
kings of the east should be prepared,
meant the shrinkage, the drying up,
and disappearance of tbe Ottoman
power, the Turkish empire. At that
time this empire was among the most
splendid in tbo world, rich, populous,
far reaching in its influence, powerful
and giving indications of strength
that would endure for nges. Accordingly Bishop Nowton wns severely
oritioUed and ridiculed for presuming
to say that this vigorous power would
decay or pass nwny, nud the worthy
bishop's interpretation of the prophecy
Wis set down hy the quid nunc ns an
absurdity not to be countenanced.
Yet witbin fifty yenrs of the bishop's
utterance Turkey hnd becomo nn insignificant power Baved from ntter
ruin only by Great Britain, who sus
tminod the throne of tho Sultun for
political reasons. It is evident that
the days of thnt ever untrustworthy
potentate are numbored and that he
and the system whieh he represents
will shortly disappear. The Euphrates
ii already dried up aud the kings of
the east, whoever they mny be, will
walk over it without inconvenience or
peril. The declaration of a British
proteotorate in Egypt will be the flrst
step. Tbe Sultan will protest and the
strong hand of the British government
will reach out and plnck bim down
and that will be the end of him.
Trance may have got a lease from
bim of the Bahr El Ghazal region but
that lease will scarcely apply. If
France paid anything for it, then it
bas upon iti hands a worthloss security. It cannot be realized upon. France
may enter upon possession, and sometimes   possession is something against
Played '"La Belle Marie" Last Night
at the Skating Rink.
"La Belle Marie" played last night
at tbe skating rink is certainly the
finest of tbe many tine plays the Bit't
ner compnny bave gi"en in Nelson.
It is tbe story of the betrayal and revenge of a beautiful, clever nnd determined girl, Jean Ingleside.
George Leigbton goes down to the
seaside on a business errand and there
meets Jean, the daughter of a mill
owner. To further his busuess projects he makes love to her, promises to
marry her and takes advantage of her
love for bim. Sbe implores bim to
marry her. He refuses, and his
brother Earl wbo overhears comes in
and tells of George's engagement to
Edith, their father's ward. Old Ingle
side also appears on the scene and tries
to kill George, but bis excitejnent
causes him to broak a blood vessel,
and, over her father's dead body Jesn
vows revenge.
Jean next appears as Marie Dubois.
a most charming and fascinating
French womnn, aud in tbnt disguise
completely captivates, George Leigh-
ton, who lavishes money on her.
Eventually he steals money from his
father, but manages to throw the
blame on Earl, whose dissolute habits
lend themselves to the accusation. He
is thus driven from home, notwithstanding tho entreaties of his mother,
sister and Edith, who is in love with
him. Dunne his exile, his only
friends are Byron Waupingee, Grace
Leigh ton's fiance, and Swipes, a
news boy.
Meanwbile La Belle Marie oom
plotes George's ruin by taking some
bonds he had stolen from liis father,
and getting him to sign an incriminating document. Just as George imagines that he is about to wed Edith,
and - with ber fortune repay the
stolen money, Marie and Earl appear
with incontrovertible proofs of Earl's
innocence and George's guilt. Esrl
is reinstated, George is disgraced
Marie declares her identity and the
onrtnin drope on a very effective scene,
In the double charaoter of Jean nnd
Marie, Miss Mattie Chelate was seen
in quite a new light. Her powers ns
a tragedienne are well known by now
to Nolson audiences, bnt her playing
of the vivacious and dainty French coquette cume almost as a revelation.
Needless to say she looked lovely nnd
her costumes were becoming than ever
moro. As Grace, Mrs. Bittner acted
with her usual grace and sprightlincss
and Miss Milly Stevens made a charming Edith. Mrs. Kelly as Madeline,
Marie's maid, bad but limited opportunities, but made the best possible
use of them.
W. W. Bittner, as George, the villain and seducer, made a great hit,
impersonating the steady businessman
suddenly carried off his feet by a dangerous adventuress, to a nicety. W.
.). Fredericks, ns Mr. Leighton, the
fond and trusting father, was very
good indeed, in fact it was probably
the finest piece of acting he has given
ns yet, J. Wnldron, as tbe scape
grace Earl treated the audience to a
verv finished nnd nrtistio piece of acting. Lew Rose wns quite nt home in
the low comedy part of the stnpid
stammering waiter, Stnbbs, keeping
the nndienee in fits by bis queer an-
tios. Mr. Rose also played the part
of John Inglesido, the old man who
died in the first act, with great skill.
E. B. Kelly wns ns good as ever ns
Byron Waupingee, as was L. McClelland in his brief appearanoe as Swipes.
Tonight tho Bittner company give
the well known drama Michael Stro-
goff.

At the regular meeting of the city
council yesterday afternoon there wero
present Mayor Houston, in the chair,
and Alderman Hillyer, Madden, Gjlker
and Teetzel. After the minutes of tho
last meeting had beeu read and
adoptod, several tenders for building
the new oemotery fence, the caretaker's bouse and the mortuary were
openod. The tenders were awarded to
tho lowest bidder, and Ed. Cawloy obtained tho contract. His bid was 11
cents per lineal foot for the picket
fencing, seven . oents per foot for
board fenoing, $143 for the oiirotakor's
honse, and 182.25 for tbe mortuary.
A communication from the I. O. 0.
F. was read to tho effect that they will
superintend the removal of their own
bodies, and enclosing a chock for $10
being tbo initial payment for au acre
plot. Tbe check was accepted, and it
was decided to outer into an agreement
to deed the ground to the lodge. This
lodge was the only society that had
made formal application and ' it was
decided tor take no action as to limiting the amount of ground they can
acquire, bnt consider ench application on its merits.
A resolution waa passed providing
that in future uo city supplies be sold
unless cash be paid therefor.
Tne question of Chinamen renting
lota and buildings on the main stroets
of tbe town came up for disoussion,
and the mayor mentioned instances,
and also that the city had colleoted
tbe road tax from somo 140 Chinamen,
and thero were about 50 or 60' still
to oome, which' meant that tba Chinese formed one-seventh of tbe adult
male population of Nelson, wbicb was
an excessive proportion. Aid. Teetzel
and Madden thought it would be difficult to take effective action. Thia
was recognized, bnt a resolution was
passed to the effect that it was the
opinion of tbe council that tbe renting
of buildings to Chinese on the main
streets shonld be discouraged, as detrimental to tbe best intorests of the
oity.
The oounoil by resolution raised the
salary of tbe city clerk from $85 to
$100 per month to date from Ootober 1,

letter requested tbat tbe city help the
hospital in making sewer connections,
their present sower arrangements (being unsatisfactory. The city sewerage
system has now reached   Cedar street.
Tbo mayor said Ibat the city hud
built the liospiliil cess pit ou con,litinii
tbey kept it in good order and they
should hnve done" eo. Several of the
aldermen complained that the hospital
liad never .shown' any consideration
for the.city and that it had never
been able to get any of its indigent
patients into the hospital.
Aid. Teetzel thoright that the best
remedy fo* the presont slate ,ot affairs
would be for the city to mako au au-
nr.ul donation t> the | mspiial, aud
for some of tbe alderman to be on the
board of.diraotors. Aid. Hillyer fay/ir-
od granting tbe request on term*.
Eventually on. motion of Aid. Whalley, tho communication >v��s flled fnr
further consideration.
Tho mayor thou rend a letter from
the Board of Trade, setting' forth Hie
resolution recently passed by that
body ou the advantage of Nelson Lo-
coming a divisional point, aud requesting the council to take action iu the
matter. After some discussion during
whioh the importance of the subject
was fully recognized by nil tho speakers, it was decided' that a special committee consisting of the mayor uud
Aid. Hillyer aud Gilker attend the
meeting of the South Kootenay Board
of Trade next Monday to discuss and
decide upon: the best  course to pursue.
The'.mayor then stated that the
ftity's legal advisors were endeavoiiug
to settle the dispute botween tho city
and the Nelson Land Improvement
oompany, by arbitration. In this connection the mayor read a letter from
Messrs. Macdonald & Johnson to tho
effect tbat thoy had asked Mr. J
EHiot; the late oity solicitor, for certain panors needed iu tho matter, but
that he had refused to give thom up
or to allow copies of them to be made.
They vere of opinion that a successful
application could be made at Victoria
for an order for the delivevv of tho papers. The council decided to adopt
this course.
Some accounts were tben ordered
pnid, including a bill from Messrs.
Tupper- Peters ���& Rotts for $403*.50 being their Costs for defending the, recent suit to quash the electric light
by-l&w.-*
Speakiug of the test of tbe fire brigade last Wodnesday afternoon tho
mayor said tbat if tbe firo department
had n few more drills and proper appliances, they would bo fairly effective. They did well on the occasion
iu question.
There was some adverse comment ou the action of Dr. Arthur
in calliug on outside medical witnesses at inquests, instead of summoning the medical health officer, and
thereby ooousiouing extra expense to
the city.
After deciding to lay a three foot
sidewalk along Vernon street to Pnrk
street, aud up Purk street as far as
blook 15, lot 22, the council adjourned
until next Monday.  .

A Disaster at the Capitol in
Washington.
GREAT  DAMAGE  DONE
Fire Followed the Explosion and Destroyed
Property That Cannot Be
Beplaced.
Washington, Nov. 7.���The United
States supreme court room, located
near the centre of tbe capitol, is
wrecked, the valuable law library connected with it seriously damaged and
many valuable records filed away in the
vaults beneath that portion of the
onpitol have been destroyed. This is
the result of an explosion of gas which
occurrod in the sub-basemeut of the
capitol just beneath the supremo
court room at 5:20 this  afternoon.
The explosion destroyed the flooring
and the entrance to the rooms immediately below the supreme court room,
and the fire which followed communicated at once to the law library and
supreme court room. The explosion
destroyed the lighting apparatus in the
immediate vicinity and because of the
darkness it is difficult to learn the exact damage. An examination of the
lower part of the building shows that
the force of the explosion was terrible,
floors and windows were blown out.
and in the many places, there nre large
cracks in under pinning of the walls.
A statement which the conditions did
not permit of being substantiated at
the time, was made that several supporting columns of the main entrance
of the building are six inches out of
place. There is no doubt many valuable papers and documents have been
permanently destroyed and their value
from a money standpoint could not
be estimated. Twenty thousand dollars had been expended in improving
the supreme court room.
GREEK CABINET RESIGNS.
Athens, Nov. 7.���The cabinet has
resigned, its members considering that
the exceptional circumstances under
which they nssmed office have censed

publio auy of the details ot his observations. He went* np in Anjzust nnd
was in Dawson and that vicinity for
two weeks. Thore is a good deal of
sickness in Dawson, lie says, principally fever, just at out what wonld be
expeoted under the weather and conditions.
SCOTCHMEN ORGANIZE.
A meeting of Scotchmen wns held
last night nt the Phair hotel for the
purpose of forming a St. Andrew's
society and of arranging for a dinner
on St. Andrew's night, Nov. 80. On

FROM THE GAZETTE.
county and says if all reports be true
Greefifrqod will be ene of the most extraordinary camps in British * Columbia. They have nothing like the showing at Rossland which they hnve at
Greenwood. Crow's Nest coal cnn
now be delivered as fast as the railway can carry it and coke will be
ready by Nov. 15.
CROW'S NEST PASS COAL.
By the advertisement of the Crow's
NesJ Coal company, which will be
found in'anothor column, the public
is now offered the oheapest coal that
has ever been put upon the market, or
is ever likely to be. A tou of thiB coal
oosts little moie than a cord of wood
and goes much further. The Crow's
Nest Pass coal coutains less than three
pre cent of ash so that consumers get
the highest possible value for their
money. ���> The fixed oarbon in the
Crow's-Nest* Pass coal amounts to between 75 and 80 per cent, whioh means
that it has an enormous heating capacity, so that a vory small fire of tbis
coal will do more work than a much
larger one of any other coal on the
market. The company bas an immense
quuntity on the bank ready to send
along as soon as the line is ready to
transport  it.
THE LE ROI TROUBLE.
It is rumored in Rossland that the
B. A. C., has deposited the full pur-
chase price of tbe shares of the Turner
faction at tha rate of $H. 25 per share
in the Old National Bank nt Spokane,
subject to Senator Turner's acceptance.

To tbe Editor of The Miner:
Sir:���In your issue of yesterday
I notice that Truthseeker takes me to
task for some remarks made by me in
conversation about labor iu the Slocan,
which happened to get into print.
J My remarks were not intended for
publication, and merely gave my own
impressions from what X bad seen
and beard.
I went to Nelson on Ootober 81.
so that the last working day
before I left wns Saturday, Octobei
29. On Ootober 24, a friend just came
from Sandon and told me that tbere
was almost a cord wood famine there,
because it was difficult tb find men to
cut it. About two days earlier a cord-
wood dealer of New Denver told ue
that lnbor was source and tbat it was
difficult to get men to cut cordwood.
Carpenters were very busy here most
of October, and I know that plasterers
are scarce, because I bave waited aud
am now waiting for them.
Of course I knowthat winter is coming on, .and that labor will soon be
too plentiful. -I hope my remarks
will not' be the means of attracting
laborers into this locnlity at present,
as they would probably bo disappointed.    Yours truly,
