The Hon. J. Fred Hume Has
Been Sworn In.
It is Stated on Good Authority lhat His
Reelection Will  Bo  Opposod   A
Lesson Drawa-
A telegram was received in the city
on Saturdayjauthoritotively announcing
that J. Fred Hume had been offorcd
und bus accepted tho portfolio of tlio
minister of mines coupled with the
provincial secretaryship. The Miner
was able to anticipate this announcement in its issue of Friday, when
from exclusive and reliable sources of
information it stated that Mr. Hume
was about to receive tho official offer
of the portfolio.
This appointment will bo received
with unmixed satisfaction by the
.Viiters in this constituency, It is a
itf&f&t thing to have the right man in
the right place, und it is nlso u great
I-thing that the representative of the
���,'uost important center of the Koot-
eiinvs should have cabinet rank, With
th#portfolio of mines in the bunds of
un old resident of the district, who is
thoroughly well acquainted with tho
needs of that district.tlioro is no longer
uny reason to fear that tho just demands of Kootenay will be overlooked.
The Miner understands that it is
Intended to contest Mr. Hume's ro-
election when ho hns iu seek ngnin the
suffrages ol the voters in consequence
of his iioecptunec of office. So remote
are the ohauoos for the success of such
an attempt that many will bo disposed
to discredit such u report, but* nevertheless there nro good foundations for
If Mr. Farwell's lato supporters re-
* main true to the principle which in-
i-duced them to support his candidature,
j the vast majority of them should support Mr. Hume in tho ensuing contest.
The stoek argument was, "it* is no
good being in opposition, Nelson hns
boon too long in opposition. Turner
i.s sure to bo returned to powor, Fur-
well is sure to bo elected nud get a
seat in the cabinet, so we ure going to
voto for Furwell!" Tho argument
was all right, only it was applied to
the wrong man, und, ns was pointed
out at the tune, by The Miner, it wns a
"boomerang" sort of argument, liable
toTi'oturn with redoubled forco on the
devoted bonds of those who originally
launched it.    This is exactly what bus
happoned, but all level hoadod men
who mado the mistako mice, lmvo
profited by their experience nnd will
vote for Hume next time.

The soldiers knew on Friday night

A heavy ruin set in as tho troops left

The   American    entrenchments   ex-
j (ended from the bench ou the left 1500

in u rire swamp. The ground was covered with   water, bamboos   and  rank
vegetation.     The    enemy's     trenches
' varied from 800 to 600 yards.    Tho one
in front was 600   yards.    To   the  oust
ofthe beach  is  the Manila rood and
1200  yards   is the   Pasoy   road.    Both
roads   passed   through   the lines  into

Queen   Victoria   Will   Send   a   Magnificent Diamond Bracelet.
Loudon, Aug. 20.���The Queen's disregard for certain social usages and
customs bus just been illustrated in n
manner tlint caused no little amusement and gossip, and at the sumo time
afforded a choice subject of comment
to that portion of the penny press
wliich is wont to mako the most of
Hor Majesty's so-called parsimony.
For some time past the approaching
coronation of the young queen of Holland bus been much discussed in England. Largo parties are organizing in
London and elsewhere, tho steamship
linos havo announced low excursion
rates, aud it* is expected that tho latter
part of the present month will see
moro English visitors in Amsterdam
und the Hague than ever bofore.
The Prince uud Princess of Wales,
accompanied by a largo and brilliant
suite, will represent the Queen, and as
custom prohibits the attendance of
any reigning sovereign in person, the
Prince of Wales will naturally bo re-
garded as the most important personage present.
As at the coronation of tho czar a
couple of years ago the. gifts from tho
different rulers of Europe will bo a
conspicuous foaturo of the enthrone
mont. Speculation us to the nature of
Queen Victoria's present to the young
est of her sistor sovereigns was satis
fled a now weeks since by tho official
announcement that tho Prince of Wales
would present in behalf of Her Majesty
u magnificent Indian bracelet sot with
diamonds und rubies of the first water.
Tho public wns somewhat surprised
this week when the fact leaked out
lhat the bracelet is ono of tho diamond
jubilee gifts and was presented to tho
Queen by ono of tbo Indian princes.
America   May Be Roquired to Occupy
Cuba Permanently.
Loudon, Aug. 20.���The Tinios this
morning says editorially that it foresees circumstances which may compel
the United States to a permanent occupation of Cuba and adds :
"If America is prepared to under
take tho responsibility of tho whole
Philippine group it is hard to seo how
any other power could legitimately interfere. If the United Stntos repudiates such responsibility a vory perilous
state of affairs might ensuo because it
would not bo easy to dispute the right
of othor powers to terminate tho stato
of anarchy. Therefore many difficulties
will be avoided by American annexation. In uny enso no European powor
need reckon on finding tho United
Stntos us easy to coerce as Japan."

Tho Italian Bi-uino Committed for Trial
for   Murder.
The Italian named Bruiuo, who was

brought to tbo Nelson jail, was taken
to Moyie (/ity last week for his preliminary hearing in order ti) avoid the

Tho prisoner wus brought to Nelson
on Saturday by Provincial Constable
Wilson of Kuskonook. He is a young

Tho handsome now- churoh erected
on Stanley street by the Baptist congregation of Nelson, wus dedicated for
divine worship on Sunday morning.
The Methodist and Presbyterian
churches bad withdrawn their morning services and the new church was
crowded to tho doors by an attentive
At tho morning services the Scriptural lessons wore road by Rev. Mr.
Frew, pastor of the Presbyterian
church nnd the opening prayer was
given by Rov. tl. R. Welsh, pnstor of
the church. The special music for the
occasion wus rendered by a union
choir from tho different church choirs
of tbo city.
Rev. R. W. Trotter of Calvary
church, Victoria, preached tho dedicatory sermon, taking for his text the
subject of Gideon and his hosts, showing the kind of men God wants to
carry on His work in the world. In
tho course of his remarks bo expressed
his conviction that Nelson will in a
few yours be a largo oity. He congratulated the Baptists of Nelson on
the completion of such a handsome
church, but that with the growth of
the city the denomination would also
grow until the present ohuroh would
bo found to bo too small nnd a large
stono edifice would be found necessary.
Ho paid a tribute to the energy of
Rev. Mr. Welsh and tho band of
church workors, whose efforts in the
lino of securing such a large, handsome
and comfortable church homo had
boeii so well rewarded. He was also
delighted tf) see the fraternal feeling
that existed among the different
evangelical churches of tho city. A
pleasing feature of the service was the
announcement that the new church is
almost froo from debt and the statement of Rov. Mr. Trotter that if tho
congregation of Nelson would raise
$500, bo would on his return to Victoria, supplement it by an additional
grant of $500, so tliat tho church
might be entirely freed from debt.
Tho formal dedication of the church
was then conducted by Rev. Mr. Trotter.
At i) :80 in the nftornoon a song service was hold in tho church, led by
the union choir, ut which addresses
woro delivered by Rov. Mr. Trotter
nnd Rov. Mr. Frew. Mr. Trotter's
addross was particularly addressed to
young men, hiking for bis subject,
"Daniel". Ho enjoined upon his
hearers tho necessity for a clean, incorruptible provincial and municipal
government, nnd urged* them to follow
tho examplo of Daniel at tlio court of
At tho evening service tho church
was again crowded and Rov. Mr.
Trotter's sermon and the spocial music
by tho choir was greatly appreciated.
The speaker followed up his sermon
of the morning by one on tbo subject,
"the uso to which God would put men
iu the world," emphazingmore especially the. necessity for "pardon", Mr.
Trotter is a pulpit, orator of more than
ordinary power und ability and ranks
among the foremost preachers of tho
Buptisr denomination in Canada, His
visit to Nelson and his eloquent and
earnest addresses ennnot fuil to ad-
vnnco the interests of tho church here.
Tho collections for the day wero

of such a handsome place of worship,
which is not only an ornament to
tho city but u credit to the energy of

Whilo those opposed to prohibition
do not seem to bo taking nny active
stops towards organized opposition to
the prohibition movement, tho temperance workers are holding meetings all
over the country and generally are
making ready for the fray. It appears
to be considered a foregone conclusion
that there will be a majority iu favor
of prohibition in tho eastern provinces, but British Columbia and the
North West Territories uro considered
doubtful. Where so little publio interest bas boon aroused, it is di IHcult to
guage public feeling on the subject,
but* it does seem very improbable that,
in tho mining districts of British Columhia at any rate, an attempt to take
away a man's right to drink when and
what he pleases will be generally
In considering the matter it is most
important to bear in mind that tt
plebiscite declaring in favor of prohibition does not immediately or
necessarily imply tbo abolition of tin-
liquor traffic. The plebiscite is merely
being taken with a view to ascertain
the wishes of tho pooplo, and legislation may or may not follow tbo verdict. This is probnbly why those interested in the sale and manufacture of
liquors are not at present offering any
vory formidable opposition to the
would-be temperance reformers, They
evidently prefer to wait till the matter
comos up as a political issue, when
they would have a better chanoo of
fighting the nintter with successful
Supposing the verdict of tho voters
to be i/i favor of prohibition, there are
many and serious difficulties in (he
way of giving effect to that verdict Inappropriate legislation. The two chief
stumbling blocks will bo the compensation and revenue. Tiie taxation
incidental to tho liquor trafflo forms
no inconsiderable item in the revenue
derived by the various authorities in
this country, from the Dominion government down to tbo municipalities,
whilo tho capital invested in the
manufacture and salo of intoxicating
liquor is represented by millions of
dollars. It is ovideut, therefore, that
if the salo of liquor is to be prohibited
not only will heavy additional taxes
havo to be imposed to mako up (ho
deficiency thus caused iu the revenue,
but an immense sum of money will
also havo, to bo raised to compensate
those who aro being driven out of
what has hitherto been a lawful and
lucrative industry. These are very
dilHcult problems for the statesman to
solvo, and he usually looks iii vain for
practical suggestions to those quarters whence conies Ihe agitation lhal
has placed him in tbo difficulty.
Whilo tho questions already indicated
are Ihe chief and inevitable dilli-
Oulties in the way of any prohibition
measure, there are other knotty problems which immediately suggest themselves as not being much easier of solution, in the very possible contingency
of British Columbia pronouncing
against prohibition, ihe quostioii
immediately arises as to how the opinions of other provinces in a mat ter
that touches the liberty of Ihe subject,
can, with any degree ol1 equity lie allowed to bo thrust down tho throats of
British Columbians. Why should tho
Ontario farmer bo allowed to dictate
to the British Columbia miner ns to
what he should cat or what he should
drink? That is a question to which it
is very hard lo give a satisfactory
answer. Another difficulty that suggests itself is the question of how the
law is to be enforced. To cope with
their additional and difficult duties,
tho present police forco would probably
been gathered in by respectable business meu will bo diverted to the pockets of outlaws. In tho recesses of tbo
mountains, in the depths of the forests
in disused shafts and tunnels illicit
stills would spring up with the rapidity
of Jonah's gourd, and though many cap-,

A few days ago Mr. H. E. Croasdaiie took up the cudgels on behalf of
tho Hon. Goo. Foster, and, presumably
in tho interests of fair piny, wrote to
Tho Miner pointing out n misstatement of fact in our criticism of Mr.
Poster's speech. Tho Miner published
Mr. Croasdaiie's letter, und acknowledged the mistake. Mr. Croasdaiie in
his letlcr also impliedly supported Mr.
Foster's statement that tbo liberal gov*
eminent had refused to pay tho bonns[o:i
oros smelted in Canada which had
been granted by tho conservatives.
As this is a matter necessarily within
Mr. Croasdailo's cognizance, The
Miner, conceiving that that samo lovo
of fair play which had prompted him
to open the correspondence would also
prompt him to give a straightforward
narration of tho facts, requested Mr.
Croasdaiie to inform us bow and when
application for tho bonus was niade,
and in what terins the liberal government couched thoir refusal. Unfortunately, Mr. Croasdaiie has not beon so
prompted and has not responded to our
request. Oonsenueiitly^we aro entitied
to conclude that, if tho facts were
known, tho liberal government, contrary (o tho impression Messrs. Foster
and Croiisduilo have beon trying lo
produce, cannot bo in any way blamed
for the non-payment of this bonus.

Party of Nelson Picnicers Havs a Hard
Experience iu Mountain Climbing.
Messrs. Jos Paqnette, 0. Appleton,
W. Simpson and Miss Simpson went
out last Tuesday to Crawford bay for p,
few days camping and fishing. They
returned on the steamer Nelson on Saturday evening, having enjoyed their
outing very much with the exception
of their experience of Saturday afternoon. The steamer Nelson called at
the bay on Saturday morning, but the
party decided that instead of going on
to Kuskanook on tho steamer and returning in the evening they would
walk around the mountain to Pilot
Bay and catch the steamer when sho
called there on the return trip. Thoy
accordingly started out on a trail
which Ihey wero informed wont to
Pilot* Bay, after travelling about three
miles they found that instead of lending to their destination it was a trail
used liy packers to some mines in the
vicinity. They were accordingly forced
to retrace tlieir stops and strike across
the mountain to Pilot Bay. After six
hours of hard climbing in a burning
sun, and without a drop of water they
at last reached Pilot Bay, completely
exhausted. The mountain is a very
diffloult one to cross anil the party
liave no desire to repeat their experience.

Madrid, Aug. 20.���All thc indications
aro that pence negotiations will 1 o prolonged. Opposition from many sections is redoubling the agitation for
convoking the cortes, and Sagasta begins to hesitate, although he shares
the opinion of Duke De Rio, foreign
minister, as to tho inconvenience in
volved in the meeting of tho cortes
and a series of debates during peace
terms. It is supposed the cortes will
meet after the election to the councils
generally aliout the middle of September.
Kl Liberal publishes remarks made
hy Sagasta on the diplomatic and
political situation, quoting the premier
as follows:
"From a legal point of view the
present state of things is neither peaco
nor war, but merely a suspension of
hostilities. An armistice would have
allowed us to dispel better tiie obscurity of the situation, but the United
States declined to allow our making n
step further in advance. The questions
to be solved are numerous and complex.
What* we have done lirst is to lay down
certain buses on which each minister
may make any observation which
study of the subject suggests. These
will continue to be treated in the daily
cabinet councils, it beiug-beld that the
bases in question are fundamental instructions for the guidance of the various commissioners in the forthcoming
negotiations, to be supplemented and
rectified subsequently by telegraph.
"In Cuba, besides evacuation there
are many other problems. Spain may
abandon her sovereignty over the
greater Antilles, but there will remain
the question of edifices and all our
property. There are laws, too, before
the tribunals affecting the interests of
Spaninrds. Where and when will these
be decided? In Havana, whore a large
number of criminals have been condemned by the Spanish tribunals,what
is to be dono with them?
"Then there are other questions for
which we have to fix a basis of discussion and agreement -regarding the
Philippines. Besides these and other
problems of greater importance thero
is a preliminary qustion to be dts-
"According to international law a
suspension of hostilities has beeu
signed anil the surrender of Manila
ought to hnvo no legal efficacy. How
will thnt principle be understood by
the United States? This causes us
much anxiety aud we give it great attention, but we are still awaiting the
information demanded from (ieneral
Jaudenez,which has not yet reached us

Recent  Deeds Show   That Ho is  Not
We frequently hear it said that the
British soldier is degenerating and is
no longer capable of bravery, endurance and deiith. But the London correspondent of Harper's Weekly tells a
story of one of the many recent deeds
of prowess which (.-ive the lie to the
pessimists, home and foreign. It is in
connection with the cutting oft' of a
detachment of twelve men during the
recent campaign on tlie borders of
India, of which we all read in the
newspapers at the. timo, but* without,
the small details that connect the death
of these twelve common soldiers with
as cool anil thoughtful a piece of heroism as the glowing annuls of British
history afford. Tlie offlcor wlio is
authority for this statement was in
command of the party despatched next
morning to lind them. On reaching
the place where the men had made
their last stand he found thirteen dead
bodies. All their rifles were of course
curried off by the Afridi. Here conies
thc point of the story. When the last
cartridge hud been fired, lhe men removed the breech bolts of their rifles
and threw them as far as Ihey could,
so that* the weapons, which they knew
could be used against their countrymen, might be rendered useless. Every
one of those thirteen bolts was recovered by the young otlleei- in command
of the search party. The lust thought
of these men before they; lay down
their lives was not for themselves, but
for their countrymen and eoniradi s.
It is good to belong to the raee capable
of such things. The British soldier
has at least not forgotten how to die.

Of these thc latter is dead to publio

from public affairs as Bismarck was
in the last few years of his life.
Orispi, while, of course, not to le
classed with Cayottr or Mazzini, is
head und shoulders the biggest {figure
in modern Italy. He was born at Hib-
eria on October 4, 181!). He studied
law but* was much more intent on
studying the condition of bis native
land. He was a revolutionist* in IMS,
and on its failure had to fly to France.
Later, in the Garibahlian revolt he
took an important part, and re-entered
Sicily with that hero. In the councils
of re-organized Italy his was a potent
voice. The central feature of his foreign policy was tho German alliance,

B The project is perhaps the most vast
that has yet been brought forth in
connection with the camp. It contemplates the construction of a tunnel
some live miles long, storting from the
Columbia river at* a point above Trail,
and ending underneath the California
mineral elaim, west of the town. The
tunnel would be adapted not only to
drain the mines of the cam]), but- it
would also ventilate them, furnish
theni with light aud power and afford
an economical means of extracting
(heir oro. It is onn of the most
gigantic undertakings in the word,
uud in size would lie even longer than
the famous Stttro tunnel in Nevada.
Owing to the hardness of the rock in
this district, the cost of the enterprise
would be even greater proportionately,
