The Editor and Manager of the Viotoria
Col mist Summoned to Answer
in Oourt.
Viotoria, Nov. 35.���Tho editor nnd
manager of the Colonist, hnve been
summoned, at the instance of oounsei
for Mr. Prentice in the Lillooet. election case, for alleged oontempt of the
supreme court, in publishing thiee fa-
tides referring to the Jpending trial
and the provincial trial, severely.
Two of these articles refer principally to the faot that the trials are
proceeding beforo a judge who, it is
declared, was an Cjtive punisan|in the
eleotion campaign which took pluce
before his elevation to the bench.
Principal doady Summoned for Thrashing
a Truant���The Case Dismissed By
Magistrate Crease-
There was a large attendance at the
police court yesterday afternoon when
the caBe of J. H. Soady, principal of
the Nelson publio sohool, was called.
Mr. Soady wns obarged with having
been unduly severe in his punishment
of a ten-year old lad named William
Oates who has been playing truant.
The youngster's mother complained
that she could not get the lad to attend
school and requested the teacher to
administer a whipping, and this having been done, she now oomplained
that undue force was used. On Monday last the little fellow went to
school, and Mr. Soady took him into a
private room, and having given bim
a sound leoture proceeded to ' ply the
strap. Wben the lad went home he
complained of feeling unwell, and informed bis mother tbat he had been
oruely treated. He undressed himself
and bis body was found to be blaok
and blue, and his legs swollen. Even
yesterday in court tbe marks were
plainly visible and the lad complained
of pain. W. A. Macdonald, Q. 0.,
appeared on behalf of the principal
and board of trustees. Chief of Police
McKinnon conducted the prosecution,
and Trustees Hall, Arthur 'and Johnstone watched the proceedings.
W. A. Galliher wns tho first witness
examined. He deposed that Mr. Avery
asked him to go to Mrs. Oates plaoe,
that he might see. the boy. The little
fellow was stripped and his baok,
shoulders, thighs, etc., presented
signs of ill-treatment. The boy was
muoh discolored, and the calves of the
legs were swollen. The wounds were
suoh as would have been produced by
a strap or stick.
To Mr. Macdonald wit nous said tbat
he knew the boy beforo this. The boy
appeared to bo a quiet lad, and witness
could not say tbat lie was truant.
William Oates, a lad of ten years of
age, haying satisfied the court that
he understood the nature of an oath,
deposed that he was at school on
Monday last, and Mr. Soady locked
him up in a room and beat him with
a rubber strap. After Ihe beating tbo
principal put witness in a seat and
kept him there. "When I sat down
my baok was sore and I tore the button
off my suspenders, because they were
hurting me. There was no one in
the room bnt Mr. Soady and myself
while he was beating me. "
Cross-examined by Mr. Macdonald
Witness said that he did not like going
to sohool and frequeatly absented
himself. Mr. Soady had told him thut
he would beat him if he did not attend sohool. He had only been at
sohool six days this month. He had
been in Nelson three or four months,
and had had bnt one fight.
Witness showed his wounds,   which
day Inst. The Btrap used was about
two feet long, he added.
I Mrs. Oates, the boy's mother was
examined, and deposed that her son
would not go to sohool. She asked the
I teacher to try aud get her boy to
school, and to punish him if he would
not attend. She, however, thought
the punishment too severe. The lad i
was sick when he came home after the
beating and could not eat his dinner.
He was since complaining of pain.
Mr. Soady came to the honse and asked
why the boy was absenting himself
and she asked Mr. Soady to whip
him if he did not go to school; he was
getting too big for her to handle.
School Trustee Hall was examined
by Mr. Macdonald and said that the
board was having a lot of trouble with
boys playing truant. So serious did
the matter beoome that they applied
for the appointment of a truant officer,
but the government snid that
the funds were not available. Under the ciroumstances, the teachers
were instructed to enforce the rules;
and punish truants. He had seen the
marks on the boy's body, and did uot
consider them serious.
Chief McKinnon asked Dr. Hall if
he considered it right to beat children
as this Ind had beeu beuten.
Dr. Hall: I believe it necessary to
hnve discipline observed, nnd if boys
deserve n whipping Ihey should get it.
Dr. Arthur, another n.e.nber of the
bonrd of trustees, corroborated the
statements of the previous witness.
In the present instance the boy deserved punishment.
Sohool Trustee ��� Johnstouo was ali-o
examined, and snid if discipline wns
not enforced the school would not be a
safe place for children to attend. If
the principal could not enforce discipline without being summoned, rhe
sooner tho school was closed the better,
it wns disgusting the manner in
which some boys conducted themselves
and nothing but severe punishment
would keep them in check. Tbe obscenity and profanity indulged in by
some of the boys was disgraceful. They
write the most obscene letters to the
little girls nnd otherwise misbehave.
Mr. G. L. Lennox deposed that he
knew the lad Oates for about three
mouths. He attended the Methodist
Sunday sohool, and on one occasion
witness saw him fight on the street
after ooming from Sunday school.
On another occasion he saw him fight
with a lad named Louden. Oates was
naturally a good boy, but required discipline.
Prinoipal Soady, deposed that he
had been teaching school for seven
years. There was considerable truancy in tbe Kelson publio school, and
Dates was a confirmed truant. He was
reported as absenting himself, and
witness spoke to the lad on tbe subject
saying that if he did not attend regularly he would be punished. The
mother used to bring the boy up to
sohool, but he would invariably skip
as soon as she left. Witness went to
see Mrs. Oates on the subject, and she
said that she could not got the boy
to attend school aud suggested that he
bo whipped. When she tried to ehus-
tise the boy he iuvarinbly kicked nt
her. On Thursdny of Inst week the
boy told hiB mother that he would not
go to sohool until Monday. Witness
tried to get the boy to go, but ho ran
away. Witness promised to call for
the lad again, but the mother said the
ouly timo to catch him would be enrly
in the morning while he wus in bed.
On Monday morning Inst witness
brought tho boy to sohool und administered a sound whipping. Witness
expressed tbe opinion that if the civic
authorities would' assist the teachers
nine-tenths of the truancy could be
stopped. Sinoo Ontes recoived the
whippiug witness had fioquently seen
him playing on the streets with other
This ooncluded the evidence, and Mr.
Macdonald addressed the court ou behalf of his client. He ridiculed the
idea of bringing such a case iuto
court, holding that a complaint lodged
with the board of trustees would have
met the caBe. If hiB worship were to
find the principal guilty of using violence, it would have the effect of destroying discipline in the school, nud
would give some of the bnd youngsters
the idea that there was au appeal from
the prinoipal teacher. In this instance
a confirmed truant received a sound
beating, which he richly deserved ami
which would have a good effect on

New York, Nov. 25-Tom O'Eourke,
matchmaker of the Lenox Athletic
club and manager of Tom Sharkey,
denies the report that Corbett and
Sharkey did not fi(,ht for a |20,000
purse and that the receipts were
equally divided between the club and
the fighters. He says the only money
the pugilists got outside of the purse
was an equal division of the reoeiptB

11845.25 additioual. O'Bourke is angry

publio statement as soon as it is ascertained who is responsible for the interruption.

The Spaniards Have Not Tet Decided on
an Answer to the Last Amerioan Memorandum-
London, Nov. 86.���The Paris correspondent of the Standard says: It is
hinted that the delay in the peace negotiations here is chiefly-due to tho
irritation of Senor Montero Rios, who
wants to resign and has only consented
to retain his membership in tbe Paris
oommission on a personal appeal of
Senor Sagasta to his patriotism, the
premier having assured him tbat personal responsibility is in no wise involved.
Paris. Nov. 26.���Senor Montero
Rios told a correspondent of the Associated Press this evening tbat the
Spanish pence commissioners had not
yet decided upon the p.nswer to be
given to the last American memorandum. "We are considering tbe mat
ter," he said, iu a conciliatory spirt,
nnd arn anxious to re-establish
friendly relations between tho two
countries. At the same time, we are
here to defend the interests and honor
of Spain."
In reply to an inquiry as to whether
there was auy truth in the report that
the Spanish commissioners had decid
ed to accept tbe American offer of
{20,000,000 for the Philippines, Senor
Montero Rios, shaking his head, sui.l.
"No, no; the commission hns not yet
decided on its answer. What our reply
will be, can only be determined at the
conference on Monday, when we will
discuss the matter with the Americans. At the same time, he added :
"Wt will follow the instructions that
may he received from Madrid."
Berlin, Nov. 25.���The St. Petersburg
correspondent of the Betliner Tage-
blatt says: "A Russian diplomatist
iu*tho course of an interview has declared that Russian will not stirs finger to prevent the United States from
occupying the Philippines, but he
said ho was unable to conceal his conviction thnt the injustice of America's attitude presaged the termination
of the friendship whioh haB hitherto
subsisted between Russia
United States.
Washington, Nov. 25.���A
meeting of the cabinet was held at 10
o'olook tonight. The meeting was
called by the president in order that
his advisors might consider with him
advijes received this evening from the
American peace commissioners at
Paris. It is understood that the advices related to counter-proposals informally made to the American commissioners by the representatives on
the commission of the Madrid government. At the conclusion of the meeting, whicli lasted only 40 minutes, and
wns held in'the pnrlors of the White
House, secretary Huy snid to a representative of the Associated Press tbat

Old Workings Unoovered at Wakeman
Sound, Up the Coast.
In the misty past of Wakeman
Sound, 200 miles up the British Columbia coast, now the stumping
giound of loggers chiefly, men toiled
und sweated in their efforts to make
the earth yield up its hidden nohes.
Very few people, in British Columhia imagined tbat this partioular part
of the coast was rich in minerals.
Very few in fact ever knew that it
hud at one time been prospected.
On the steamer Coma, which arrived
in Vancouver, on Tuesday last, were
eight hardy loggers who have been in
the woods near Wukeman Sound for
several months, working for E. Burns.
They were so isolated that it was
only recently that they hiar.l of the
New Westminster fire.
Alex. McCauley, the foreman of the
camp, who came down with the men.
told a reporter a queer yarn at the
Granville hotel this morning.
He said that while working in the
woods several miles from tide water
he almost Btnmbled into several large
holes, oue of which was SO feet
deep. These holes were almost circular and the sides were perfectly
Bmooth. A couple of gold puns, made
of beatetr copper, lay beside the holes,
and told the story of their origin.
Cariboo Jack, an Indian who has
taken up his abode in thut locnlity,
says that many years ago he remembers when a number of Indians and
whites worked the mines and took out
thousands of dollars in coarse gold.
The mines, however, soon played
out and were abandoned.
Mr. McCauley says that there ore
good prospeots in the vicinity of the
sound. He never heard of any placer
gold being found until he discovered
the abandoned shafts, and got Cariboo
Jaok's story.���The Provinoe.

Raising   a  Greater Storm
Than the Dreyfus Case-
It is Believed That His Trial is Intended
to Throw Doubt Upon His Deposition at Oourt of Cassation.
Paris, Nov. 25.���The Pioquart case
seems in the way of raising even a
greater storm than the Dreyfus affair.
The papers favorable to the general
staff are dumb in the faoe of the barefaced decision of the military governor of Paris, Gen. Zurlinden, to tiy
Col. Picquart by oourt martial, while
those favoring revision are furious nt
this new attempt to defeat justioe,
and protest against the oourt martial
being ordered. Nobody believes tbat
Pioquart is guilty of any crime except
ofcourageous desire to render justioe to
Dreyfus; but on all sides it is recog-
nized tbat, in a practically seoret
trial, he may be condemned on some
technicality, thus attaining the apparent objeot, whioh is to throw doubt
upou his depositions before the court
of cassation in the Dreyfus trial
Everyone is asking the motive of General Zurlinden in so persistingly pursuing Col. Picquart and why, if a
oourt martial is necessary, it could not
be postponed until tbe decision of the
oourt of cassation has been given.
Everyone is asking whether it is a desperate attempt to shield tbe former
minister of war, Goneral Meroier,
and the general's staff, even ut tbe
risk of j-reoipiiating disastor and the
nation's hatred, and, in any event, of
driving every doubting prison into
the Dreyfus party. A protest against
the court martial of Piquart, benring
the signatures of leading authors,
polictioians nnd journalists, is being
widely circulated for further names
aud will be presented to the government. This evening it is reported that
M. DeFreycinet. minister. of war, has
consented to be interpellated on the
subject in the chamber of deputies next
Monday, when a sensational scene may
be expected.
Another feature of the case is the
torrent of hostile criticism now poured
on M. De Freycinet. who is accused of
quailing before General Zurlinden
and the general staff. Maitre Laborie,
Picquart's counsel, Bays he is con-
vinced it will be impossible to condemn Pioquart on the charge of forgery, but the accused offioer.may possibly be condemned on the charge of
communicating seoret documents, although their communication was in
uo way inimical to the interests of the
Col. Pioquart continued his evidence before the court of cassation
throughout the whole day and his deposition is expected to oooupy several
days more. There is still some hope
that he may receive justice owing to
the presence on the court martial of
Col. Bonnul, who is �� great friend of
Picquart's, but M. Clemeneeau in the
Aurore decares that the court martial
is packed and accuses M. DeFreycinet
of allowing an innocent man to be victimized iu order to increase his own
chances at the next presidential election.

sharing this trade with the Canadian
Pacific line the manager of the Great
Northern railway is preparing to
make an effort at Ottawa to resuscitate the Ksttle river railway charter
which Mr. Corbin was successful in
having passed through commute last
session, but wbiob was rejected in
the House. Nelson should keep a patient and jealous watch upon this movement as its success may mean much
to the business interests of this place.
When the matter was up before, the
Nelson board of trade adopted a resolution in support of Mr. Oorbin's application and there were petitions sent
from this town praying that parliament should comply with Mr. Cor-
bin'B requesst. Had this resolution
snd these petitions been successful in
bringing about the result sought, it is
very doubtful whether Nelson business
bouses would be favored with many
orders from the boundary oountry today or shipments either. Nelson
board of trade was hurrahed into tbat
reaolution, but it should consider well
before agaiu committing itself to so
doubtful a scheme.
When Adam Smith in his "Wealth
of Nations" laid down tbe axiom that
selfishness was the actuating principle
in trade everywhere, he did not present us with an original thought. Long
before his time selfishness dominated
trade aud it docs bo to tbis day. Mon
will ever look for the advantage,
and countries and communities will
consider their own interest before that
of others. Therefore, the chief oou-
cern of Nelson in regard to Mr. J. J.
Hill's project is not how it would effect
Southern British Columbia, but what
effect it would hsve upon the business
of this community, the trade centre of
the Kootenays? As Nelson's commerce
With the Boundary couutry is but in
its initial stage, though promising to
become very great, nud at present oan
not be regarded as being in a perman
ent chunnel from which it could not
be diverted, it is plain that a foreign
railway giving the Kettle river country access to business centres across
the line would imperil a trafflo which
Nelson under other circumstances
Would surely secure. Spokane hns
grown;into_;a rich and highly prosperous plnce ou the trade of the Columbia
valley and it is not in the interests of
Nelson chat it should add the trade of
the Boundary country also to its territory.
Tbo argument was made at Ottawa
that Mr. Corbin had beueflted this
oountry greatly in building si railway
in here ut his own expense, but those
advocating bis cause forgot to say
that Mr. Corbin got a very liberal land
grant from the Britiili Columbia government for bis trouble and thtt he
now owns surface rights throughout
tbis district the valuo of whioh exceeds what he expended on bis lino
twice over. Besides he scoured a handsome reward for his enterprise from
the trafflo receipts of his road. Certainly this oountry owes Mr. Corbin
nothing, nor does it owe anything to
the Great Northern  railway.
The opeuing of the Crow's Nest and
the  Bobson-Pentiotion linos   will put
this oity in a most  advantageous position to supply   all   the needs of  south
western   British   Columbia   from   its
warehouses and it would be   devoid of
perception   and   sense   if  it lends  its
aid towards   a   line   that seeks   entry
solely   for  the purpose  of  diverting
trade into United States channels. The
Crow's Nest  Pass lino   will give us
(he shortest  and  cheapest  line  east,
both as regards freight and passengers,
and Tte have no doubt  that   when the
schedules of thut line shall have   been
decided    npon    Mr.   Hill  will b��vo
There arn many iu England and in
this country who hug the delusion
that the Americans, in order to meet
the undue ebullitions of friendship
so pointed in official circles in the old
land, will depart from their policy of
protection and make concessions in
trade arrangements that will be agreeable to Great Britain and the empire
at large. It is well known that oue
must live with a man to thoroughly
know him. We have not lived with
the Americans, bat we have dwelt beside them sq long that it can safely be
said that we know them thoroughly.

growth of admiration for and deference
to the Americans, so it is in the official and diplomatic oirole in the
United States that we find the greaiest
admiration for Anglo-Saxon institutions and the desire for a closer union
between the two countries. It is doubtful whether that admiration and desire
extends much farther than tbe official
class in the states. None of their diplomats nan mix with the distingnish-
��� 1 and able men who rule the great
nation to which we belong, without
being impressed by their power, their
honor, their thorough trustworthiness
in managing affairs of state, and this
impression brings with it respect and
esteem. Of late years there has not
been an Americau minister at St.
James who has not oome nway with
lofty opinions of those who rule there,
and some of them, by giving expression to their opinions, hnvo brought
down on themselves censure for doing
anything so weak as to praise Britain
or the British. For instance, the late
Hon. Thomas Bayard, a typioal Amerioan, whose life reflected bonor upon
his countrymen, wos publicly condemned by congress for his expressed
friendship for England and plainly
told that his conduct was un-American.
Outside of this official class and the
chiefs of the navy, who have seen
Great Britain's influence in many seas
and, sailorlike, revere the power for
good that Britain has grown to be, the
great mass of the people know little
about England und care less. '' We
licked you here," Baid oue impulsive
Yank to the Prince of Wales wheu in
1860, he stood ou Bunker Hill, and
that is abont all the bulk of the Amerioan people caro to remember, that
they fought with the motherland in
1776 and again in 1812 and they have
been taught through a long traot of
years tbat they gave the old 'uu tbe
worst of it. It may be that publio
opinion in this respect is changing and
that a better feeling is growiug. James
Bryce, who has been very active in
laying the foundation of au Ati'lo-
American alliance, and who is the
author of what is the best study we
have ever had of the Amerioan commonwealth, paused in an address he
delivered some time ago iu Chicago, on
the unity of the two peoples, and
asked if anyone there would like to
see the downfall of Great Britain.
There was deep silence for a few seconds, thea the audionce partly roso
with vehement ories of "No." We
liked that.    It was a good augury.
But unfortunately, the peoplo do
not rule in that oountry, where there
is no responsible government aud often the popular will is defeated by influences that rule at Washington.
There may be wide-spread gratitude
to Great Britain for her friendly attitude to the . United States during the
war with Spain and there may bo a
general desire to show that gratitude
by some gracious act, but congress
rules and protoetion rules congress.
Therefore we must consider that ^io
time for re-approachment has not come
yet or we would seo some sure sign of
it. Iu the meantime the Americaus
place enrtaiu embargos on Canadian
shipping in Porto 14ico and there is
no intimation that tuny will not do
tbe same with British shipping and
'oimmeroe in the Philippines. The
| "Open Door" polioy for which Great
Britain was prepared to risk so muoh
fails so far as the United States is
'ooncerned. Aud it is very probable
I that reciprocity will fail, or be so restricted iu its application tbat there
will be no benefit in it to either side.
The ores of this province will still be
subjected to vexatious imposts at the
boundary, the profits of treatment will
oontinue to go to American smelters,
for that is the meaning of the report
from Washington that the present
duty upon lead bullion is to be retained, though lead ores  may bo admitted

.Enquiry Into the Loss
the Mohegan.
He Cheered on thej Men to   Save  tbe
Women and Children���Last Words
ofthe First Officer.
3 London, Nov. 25.���The inquiry iuto
the oircuftistaiiccR of the loss of the Atlantic transport stenmer Mohegan,
whioh wns adjonmed on November 21,
was resumed yestferday. Quartermaster Juddery testified that he steered
the'Mohegan between tho Isle of Wight
and Portland, the course beiug west,
three quarters north. He gave the
same course to the man who relieved
bim at the wheel. It was impossible,
he said, to light' the oil lamps after
the ship struck, as the lamp room
was submerged. Quartermaster Juddery said ho saw Captain Griffiths
oomfl out of the whtel house at 4:15
p.m.,he also saw him near the wheel,
house when the ship was off Eddy
stone light and heard him say: "All
right." The witness described the
oonduot of every one after the accident as excellent. He heard the captain cheering on tho men and urging
.them to care for the women and children. When the witness finally took
refuge in tbe rigging, the chief officer
bude him good bye aud said: "I
think we did onr best. "
Biles created mirth enough for any
house. Miss Bordman did good service as the imperious Fanny Heath and
was ably supported by the rest of the
company. During the acts ifr. Paul
Boardman gave a few comic sougs in
his own aWe style, while Miss Strong
charmed her auditors by singing "Behind the Times."For this she was encored and responded with "My Guard-
ran," both of which gave scope for
her rich snpniuo. "The Prisoner of
Zanda" and "Born iu Old Kentucky, "
were her othor songs, both nf which
woro particularly taking. The attrnc
tion for tonight is "The Tieket of'
Leave Man" with special matiueo,
to which all children will be admitted
at 10 conts per head. The company
close.') its engtigemcuufc tonight, and
those who hnvo not taken in the show
will do well to avail thotiiselvcs of this
tho last opportunity.
of the sbortagp is that tbe usual big
supplies were not taken in during tbe
summer, iu anticipation of abundance
of coal from the Crow's Nest Pass
fidds. The roads are too heavy for
carting, and there is not snow sufficient for sleighs.
Kev. Mr. Coleman, Presbyterian
missionary among the Chinese in
Van onver aHd Rev. Mr. Ng, the native Chinese missionary at Victoria,
who are making a tour of the interior
towns, held a religious service at
Chinatown last night, which wns
largely attended by the Celestials, who
listened with atteution to a Christian
sermon in their own language.
To Mons Bernard Walther to Be  Held
Tonight in the Presbyterian Church.
At the Thanksgiving conoert on
Thursday evening the excellent violin
playing of Mons Bernard Walther delighted tbe large audience and at the
request of several members of the Nelson Musical society, the Presbyterian
ohuroh has been given to Mr. Wulther
for a benefit concert tonight. He will
be assisted in the programme by Madame Walther, who possesses a charm -
ing mezzo-soprano voice and by
Miss Laura Escbelmann at the piano.
Tbe Nelson Musical society will also
repeat the "Songs of the Vikings"
which was sung with suoh excellent
effect at the Thanksgiving concert. It
is hoped thnt Mr. Walther's kindness
in giving up his own concert in order
to assist at the Thanksgiving concert
will be repaid by a full house tonight
for his benefit The press in all parts
of Canada speak very highly of Mr.
Walther's entertainments nnd lovers
of high class musio may depend upon
onjoykg a rare treat.
Request      Increased     Appropriations
From the Deportment.
A meeting of the Nelson school board
was held last night iu the office of the
secretary, Dr. Arthur, at whicli there
wore present, Mr. Ueo. Johnstone,
Drs. Hall and Arthur.
After routine business the question
of securing appropriations from the
government to provide for the increasing school requirements of tho city
wns discusod, after which it was decided to instruct tho secretary to write
to the educational department at Victoria to request: (1) That the sum of
$(1000 be placed in the estimates nt the
next session of tho provincial legislature to complete the present school
building. (2) That the salaries of all
teachers iu the school be increased.
(!!) That provision for four additional
teachers be made for 1899. (4) That
a permanent janitor be appointed.
It was pointed out that through the
parsimony and false economy of the
government the efforts of the board
are gtcutly hampered in providing for
the educational demands of the city.
A resolution wns adopted unanimously approving of the oourse of
Principal Soady in dealing with the
truant William Oates, and as the case
involved the question of the discipline
of the school it was decided that the
engagement of counsel for the defence
be approved of.
The trustees were unanimous in deciding on a vigorous campaign to suppress truancy.
Tho teachers will be requested to
send iu a list to eacli meeting of the
board of all pupils absent without
cause and the parents will be summoned acording to law.

An Excellent  Comedy   Produced Last
Night by the R. E. French Co.
'���'Dad's Girl" proved a very taking
bill at the rink last night, and a more
enjoyable performance has .not been
given, as testified to bp th'e rounds
of applause which greeted the many
sparkling gems of humor and pathos
with which the play abounds. The
greater part of the work fell to Miss
Mamie Holden, who as "Dad's Girl"
made a lasting impression. From
the moment she appeared as the   vivn-
I oious little adopted daughter of big
David Hoskins (R. E. French) to the
last scene ahe held ber andience.
Her woric throughout was as varied
as it was touohlug. As "Dad's Girl"
���tha girl of the millionaire pork
butcher���she had ber designing lovers, none of whom cared for the little
sprightly one, but nil having designs
on the old man's wealth.
The old   man's son   supposed  to  be
. dead, always turns np at* an awkward
moment, and finally falls a victim at
the hands of his designing partner in
crime. The death scene was very
effective. Sqnijre Wainwright (H. P.
Wilson) aud his son Stephen (0. A.
Smiley) sustained their important
parts well, while Stephen's maiden

No Misunderstanding; With
the Minister of Militia
Be Praises the Yukon Forco for Thoir Endurance ud Discipline in Trying Circumstances.
Toronto, Nov. 86.���Following is the
text of Major General Hutton's remarks on tbe alleged breach between
the minister of militia nnd himself:
"To the intense astonishment of myself and the minister cf militia in the
evening papers in Ottawa on Monday
night, it was stated tbat tbere was a
breach between myself and the minister of militia. Well, gentlemen, all I
oan say is that a breaoh existed in
imagination of the gentleman who
concocted this newspaper paragraph,
because, I can safely assert this, and
Dr. Borden will tell yon exaotly the
same, tbat we laid our heads together
and wondered how the deuce this paragraph appeared, and I can assure
you that I never had more cordial relations with any minister of the erown
with whom I have been associated
than those existing with the popular
minister of defence. Now, tbere is also one other point that I would like to
comment upon, because it affeots the
character ot an individual officer. Thia
officer oame back from the Yukon on
official communications to me which
were not clear or full. About 10 days
ago tbe full report arrived and full
communication was made to me as to
how this officer bad carried himself
during the very difficult advance of
the Yukon force to Selkirk and Dawson aud the same official communication of which he was tbe bearer to individuals and others connected with
the government in Canada, and of
which I was not aware, resulted in
his original orders beiug completely
Reversed, and he has been told to return to the Yukon. I shonld like al
so to say this, that the character I received of him as a stout, useful and
Valuable officer, was such aB any ot
you gentlemen or n.yself might well
be proud of.''
lieu. Hutton closed his speech with
a very complimentary reference to Yukon forces. He said the foroe sbove.i
themselves ihe equal of tbe soldiers
composiug lhe Ked River expedition.
Iu endurauce and discipline, iu try-
ing_ciiTuinsiaiu'i'8, they equalled the
Uri tish army.
To tbe Editor of The Miner,
Sir:���Might we enquire of The
Miner wbat it ia that so disturbs its
tranquility iu these so called Chinese
outrages in the Slocan. On various
occasions it has made the assertion
tbat it was the "lawless clique of
tbe Coeur d'Aiene oountry." who were
responsible for the trouble. That is
only true wben it iB remembered that
the mine owni rs who introduced these
Chinese are Americans, without exception. That the Canadians, as is inferred, do not object to the Chinese is
a libel on tbe intelligence of our people. If thoso who took part in this
"unlawful assembly" were all Americans, whi'.h according to evidence adduced, numbered from 16 to 60 persons, it is strange indeed that the
only one the police happened to get in
jail, shonld bo a Britisher, and wbo
will say that McUiuty the escaped, is
not also, for judging hy the thickness
uf his tongue he is doubtless a native
of Erin.
The report has goue forth tbnt
thero is groat difficulty in getting
white cooks. I presume there always
will he if tho mine owners only wish
to pay Chinese wages. In few countries nan a better (Mass of cooks be
fouud thun .in the Slocan and tbat
tliey shonld expect fair wages is but
natural. Tbe miners of Slooau and tbe
people in general nbjeet to Celestials
being introduced and notwithstanding
the contention is made that tbey will
only bo employed an cooks, what gua-.
rantce is thore that history will not
repeat itself and, aa at Union, tbe
Chinese will uot eventually work underground ->. The spectacle of, the richest
mino in B. 0., Ay I the rioheat in rhe
North Wost lining the flrst to introduce
the cheap Mongolian shows to wbat
a depth human nvarioe can go. Do
these American owners who are snid
to receive yearly fl,600,000 in dividends
from this grout mine contemplate the
introduction uf the familiar . sweating
system nsi d in tho coal mines of the
other side? Yet why the other side?
Has not the other great dividend paying mine in II. O., the Dunsmuir conl
Byatom, sot the pace to grind, despite
their millions acquired by the generosity of the people.
In The Minor's issue of the 23rd reference is mado to the bail, which Mc-
Giuty was granted. Evidently The
Miner is laboring under somo misrep-
1-enentntinii. from what doubtful source
wo may surmise, Both McGinty aud
Williams wero admitted to hail at $3.r>U
in each case by the magistrate wbo
tried aud committed thom. It would
be well perhaps for those newspapers
which have been so anxious to espouse
the cause of tbn Celestials and their
employers to remember tbat it ia not
tbe Ohinosse or tho mine owners who
support their papers The sentiment of
llm people in the Slocan is sneh that
they will not tolerate these moral lepers iu their midst and it The Miner
will permit me to quote some advice
from its own editorial: "Experience
teaches that when oue comes iuto dis-1
pnt* with a stronger  force, the veiy

Formed at Blocan's Oity   to   Advance
the Interests of the District.
Slocan City, Nov 24���A meeting of
tbe citizens nnd prospectors of Slocau
City waB held at the Arlington hotel
ou Wednesday eveniug to discuss the
advisability of forming an organization to further the mining interests of
this town aud district. Mr. Gething
was appointed chairman nud Geo.
Nichol secretary of the meetiug. It
was at flrst thought advisable to organize a board of trade but after quite a
lengthy discussion of the matter it
was decided to organize an association
to be known as the Slocan City Miners' Exchange. Mr. Gethiug was
chosen president nud Geo. Nichol secretary of the association. Thero is at
present on the outside a great deal
of unjust prejudioe against the district
and it is high time that the oitiiens
of Slocau Oity were doing something
to prove to the outside world tbat thia
district has got just as much mineral
and perhaps more than most mining
camps in West Kootenay. Our ore exhibit this year at the Spokaue Fruit.
fair represented 32 different properties
in this distriot, showing an average
assay value of 208 ounces silver aud |B0
in gold per ton. If there is any other
camp either iu Kootenay district or
the provinoe of British Columbia tbat
can show a better average than that
to the same amount of properties it
has not yet been beard trom. The ore
sent to Spokane a year ago also took
Iwo diplomas at the Nebraska state
exhibition, Omaha, this yenr which
speaks well for this district. It is
trne a depression prevails here
present time, just the same as
land and Sandon had when
camps were in the development
but it is not because we hnve no min
eral; it is more on account of tbn false
reportB that have been scattered
abroad against this distriot. It is a
well known fact that during tbe
spring and summer of 1897, Slocan
Oity wns over crowded witb the tinhorn boomer and hobo element aud because capital did not oome iu nnd
make mines in a few short months
they rushed off to other boom towns
and spread the report that this cnmp
was no good. That is the cause of
most of the unjust prejudice that is
prevalent ngninst (hia camp todny.
The Miner's Exohauge"purpose in
the near future placing au ore cabinet
near -the depot, that the travelling
publio may seo that Slooan City is
not onlv tbe prettiest townsite in
Kootenay but that it hns the miueral
to baok it np.
The following nre the prices of groceries, provisions,etc., as quoted by our
local dealers. It is the intention of
The Miuer to have these prices corrected every week by trustworthy dealers, so that residents of the city aud
others may be informed as to the cost
