Mr. O'Donoghue is very favorably impressed  with all he had se(*n here during his visit, and spoke  of the great possibilities of the country. He repeats  Horace Greely's advice, " Go West, young man, and  rise with the country.** but does well to point out that  the labor market is at present well stocked. 'Young  men who ��� ave comfortable homes and good positions  in the East should think well before striking out West.  except they are prepared to rough it and turn their  hand to anything which may offer. During his stay  Mr. Q'Donoghue had an opportunity of seeing the  effects ofcthe Chinese and Japanese inundation, and it  is to be'hoped that he will enlighten his people on the  subject.  ������Win miM ��� ������ 111�������������������'     ���Mi*iw*i���������!* ������' (jnMHMHM  ,\ J '  ( , ' J  If-the'foreigners oi Pekin did hut know it, says a  London paper,.-they might increase the number of!  their supporters indefinitely. All they need do is to  cut their Jwaste paper into the shape of soldiers and  horses and scatter them about the streets. The common people who put their faith in the Taoist priests  ���for Confucianism, a philosophy rather than a religion, is confined to the upper classes and scholars���p  believe that such iigures become imbued with power  antagonistic to themselves, and they flee- in terror.  Sometimes the whole valley of the Y^ngtseking has  been stirred up by so comparatively simple a thing as  paper soldiers. For our own part, we would feel  much safer in Pekin or any other part of China if under the protection of the allies than depending" on a  legion of paper warriors. The paper soldiers may do  very well to frighten common people, but from the  tight the Boxers are putting up it is evident they are  none of these.  A branch of the Canadian forestry Association has  been organized   in this Province  by Sir   Henri Joly,  and from the interest manifested in the undertaking up  looks as il* it will prove a success.   It is most essential  to the mining industry of the country that the timber  on the mountains should  be preserved.      Nothing is  better calculated to   prevent snow! slides than a good  growth of timber.      Tt is a noticeable fact that in districts denuded of timber destructive snow-slides are of  I requent occurrence, while in  well Wooded  sections  they very seldom occur.      The climatic influence of  trees is another point in favor of preserving the forests  which should not be overlooked.    It is therefore to be  hoped that the British Columbia branch  of the Canadian Forestry Association will prove  as useful in the  West as it does in the other parts of the Dominion.  Africa seems destined to be the sportsman's paradise. So far as legislation c;n accomplish it all of the  continent lying bet /een Egypt and the Sahara on the  t* ���i  3    ��� :    '  li:.^  r'f '  ';��it  &-/-C  ^T:'^:jf7Wssmm��m>mm  tK+jwaontmltm  fj^-liV-Man-n""'' *",V'J" TV*V(  ���jn��H y �� ��*���** "Atpwiff  ��� ^^^^r^rvr^^ jBaHIBBBMiiWiHMW'IMBB  M y :���:-/������:  ����C  /  im  &*Wy  ��� l?f;  ps ill ���  Ill  Mm  !fl|!;  if  4  THE NKLSON ECONOMIST  north and the Zambesi and German Southwest Africa  iu the south, has been turned into an immense game  preserve by the European Powers. The agreement is  to last for "fifteen years, and by it at least one great  preserve will be secured.  Race riots  iu the United  States  are becoming an  every day occurrence, and so serious is the aspect that  again the proposal to isolate the blacks is being seriously discussed       In the southern states where the  negro element predominates  the whitenian's Hie and  property are never safe, while the colored  folks who  live in the northern states are having anything but a  pleasant time.      Never in the history of the country;  was the race trouble more serious than at present   On  the slightest provocation the  colored man is lynched,  and to avenge his death the whites are  made sutler.  So bitter has race hatred become,   that law  seems to  be altogether ignored even in the cities of the United  States.  In New Yorkthe other day while two negroes  were riding on a street ear some one ca lied  out that  they ought to be lynched.    A man with a clothes line  promptly appeared on the scene and the negroes were  pulled out,  thej-ope thrown around their necks, and  with some fifty men and boys pulling, the mob started  for a lamp post,   intending to hang the victims.      A  squad of police arrived in time to save the men's lives  and '*:,* with much clubbing dispersed the mob.'*   That  such a thing should  occur in broad day  light in the  city of New York shows  how bitter is  the  feeling  against the blacks.      The negroes are said to be arming themselves, and otherwise preparing for trouble.  The war correspondent of the I) tily Tvhffr.tph gives  a very sad account of treatment British soldiers receive  in South Africa. He states that one pound of raw  flour, which the soldiers have to cook after a hard  day's march, is served out to each man every alternate day, ll In this country," adds the correspondent  "there is no fuel excepting a" little" ox dung dried by  the sun. If a soldier is lucky enough to pick up a little  he can go to the nearest water, of which there is plenty.  mix his cake without yeast or baking powderp and  make some sort of a wretched mouthful. He gets one  pound of raw meat daily, which nine times out often  he cannot cook, and there his supper ends.'' This is  certainly a horrible state of things, and there ought to  be no excuse for it The idea of supplying flour and  raw meat to soldiers in a country where there is no  fuel with which to cook them, is an. idea that would  not suggest itself to any sane mind. That such bungling should be possible with the War Department is  inexcusable, and whoever is responsible for it will no  doubt be brought to task.  There is perhaps no country in the world where  the tramp is more painfully in evidence than in...the  United States. The great army of idlers seems ever  on the increase, and of recent years these good-for-  nothing fellows have been steadily drifting into Canada. How to deal with the tramp is a subject which  has occupied the attention of governments for a long  'up-to.date the  Germans  appear to be the  only j)eople who have succeeded. Germany allows  no man to prowl about the country without giving an  account of himself If he is looking lor work he must  make it clear that he has means of support during his  searchr If he has no means of support the govern*  ment offers him these means, but oti the important  condition that he works in return. If the tramp is an  honest man he will be grateful for the opportunity of  tiding over his hard times and earning something into  the bargain, but if he is merely a loafer the govern*  ment gives him such a taste of work that in the future  tramping will have vastly less charms for him.  ��v~j  yH��J^"l��"����H����W  niiVMMCUMOf  ��UmM  Major Dkkt, agent lor the British Government,  has been purchasing horses in Canada for the army,  and re ports very satisfactory results. So well pleased  is he with Canadian horses that Iks will recommend  the establishment of a permanent purchasing depot in  in this country for the remounts for the army. The  major gives some valuable advto? as to the class of  horses suitable for the service, and no doubt the farmers of Canada wilt profit by it* There is good money  in horse-raising, and Canada ought to be able to supply the demand.  tnxMWMilVUtKWM*  Tbk United States Senate has been popularly dubbed  the Millionaire Clubt and if the figures given to the  public by the New York Herald are reliable, the institution is a very costly one* For the la**t fiscal year  SrVjoo was '.expended for medicines and toilet ariicb  ''for'.the!.:'sena'torv-'i trifles as" icoo doses  of bromo seltzer and bromo caffeine Three doses of  caffeine powders; four cases of lithia water, twobottte  of bromo lithia and some lithia tablets further conti>  ��� billed to keep the senatorial system in goo<i repair,  To each senator there are four employes in various  capacities ���sixty messengers in all, who each receive  on an average$i,440 per year. Men employed in the  folding room get $tcxx> a year, and those who run the  elevators enjoy $r,200. The little pages who wait  upon senators get $75 a month, the postmaster of the  senate $3,250.' firemen $1.095, and the upholsterer and  locksmith $r,440, It is not generally known that  each member of this distinguished laxly is barbers  gratis as many times a day as he wishes, that in con-  junction are all the appurtenances to Turkish and  Russian baths, and that skilled masseurs ate always  in attendance to hasten the course of the slothful senatorial blood. Truly Uncle Sam tteats his senators  liberally.  Thk Germans are up to date in military matters at  least. We seldom here of an accident in their commissariat department such as too frequently bring*  discredit on the British service, and an instance 0  which we recite in another column. The latest innovation introduced, is that of war telegrams, which enables the German soldier serving in China to send a  message to his relatives at home. A list has been  draw h'up of about one hundred messages sucb as  would usually be sent. To each of these message *  attached a number which has a word corresponding to  it in the official code.

Por the first time mucc her life sentence was iro-
ppsed eleven years ago, Mrs. Florence Maybrick has
had a private interview with her counsel. Dr. Clark
hell,.of New York. The interview took place at the
Aylesbury prison, the unhappy woman appearing in
alight blue check costume with a red star on the
shoulder! indicative of it being her first offence and of
her former good character : below this is the letter L,
meaning that she is a life prisoner, and her prison
number. The woman still protests her innocence of
the terrible crime for which she was condemned, but
vet ■professespto.-'hope that the time will soon come
when her long years of captivity will cease "and that
>he.will Ik! set at liberty. Every possible effort has
i*en made by the friends of the prisoner both in the
I'mted, States and in England to secure , her release,
but,so. clear was the evidence against her that there is
no doubt whatever iu the mind of the authorities as to
.'her guilt;."'
A CABU-; from London announces that the Department of. Mines'of British Columbia has !>eeu awarded
a grand prize.at; the Paris Exposition. This is welcome news, and serves to illustrate the wisdom oi
.making; a good display of the mineral wealth of the
.Province wherever and whenever it will attract worthy
attention. There is a great deal of French capita!
.invested'in.the'mines of British Columha, and that
samples of the ore exhibited in the capital of that
country would prove of interest to present and pros*
pective investors goes without saying. That good
results will follow the exhibition and the award, there
is every reason to believe, Ir. our own and neighbor*
ing districts' Frenchmen have invested, literally, and,
we are pleased to add. successfully. If their experience and that of those .who. had the advantage of inspecting the minerals shown at the.-exposition,- will

Pr is not often Tin.; Economist indulges in praise
°* dramatic companies that visit Nelson, but an exception must be made in the case of the Australian
ir ■     i
medv Company,   which   will open  a four   nights*
tnKagement in the Nelson Opera House this evening.
°u'rv pbtee this company   has visited   the news-
papers <hc   loud in   their  praises   of them, and   the
olluwing letter from Mr. C. Wentworth Sard, editor
of the Kamloops Standard, to the publisher of The
Economist is one of the many testimonials we might
give as to the excellence of the Australian Comedy
Company : , °The Australian Comedy Company,
who are coming to your city with 'Sapho' and
other plays, are really excellent. They are a refined lot of people off the stage and are far away the=
best thing we have ever had. I told Cochrane, the
chief actor, to call upon you He is, as are the others,
an Australian who has travelled extensively. He
was in the Jameson raid."
In Mr. Jacob Dover's jewelry store there is a piece
of work which for artistic design and excellence of
workmanship equals anything manufactured in
Canada It is one of several medals Mr. Dover is
making for the Nelson Gun Club. It will surprise
many that such work can be done in Nelson, or in
British Columbia, for that matter.
The Legislature will probably complete its labors
within a day or so The pi esent session now drawing to a close has been remarkable for more than one
reason, the principal one.beingthat it has under the
peculiar circumstances succeeded so well in bringing
order out of chaos. It was intended that contentious
legislation should be avoided, but certain members of
the Opposition were persistent in setting snares to
trap the Government and lead it into a trap that
would weaken its resolutions. Notwithstanding
this, the Government has accomplished much beneficial legislation and has strengthened its hold on the
people, who have grown tired of the fallacies of incompetent and dangerous legislators.*

It seems more than probable that the general
elections for the Dominion will lie held on or about
October 23rd. The unusual activity in the Grit
hive presages an early election Already nominations have taken place in many constituencies and
the campaign may be said to be in progress. In the
East the Conservatives are preparing for the fray, and
the same may be said of many of the constituencies of
the West In the Yale-Cariboo riding, no move has
yet been made by the Conservatives, although the

■We are pleased to note that there is every probability of having a new Jand important industry added
to those already existing in Nelson; Mr. Thomas
Kennedy is in the city representing Brantfcrd, Ont.;
capitalists, who are anxious to establish woollen mills
in this province. They propose to erect a factory
with a capacity of four sets of mills, for the manufacture of blankets and woollen goods of every description , and have practical!y decided upon Nelson as the
most suitable site. As Australian wool is that principally used, the syndicate would save from the coast

NELSON. ';;,!'■■//!   p. ^.y,
•The Silver King is putting on mor^men, and doing
a great deal of good work, the result of which will
be a greater output of br£ than ever and systematic
development.
The reeonder's office was a busy place during the
past week. An exceptionally large number of fresh
records were made, and a great number of claims
changed hands. The books indicate a very lively
time in local mining operations.
The gold output from the properties around Nelson
is a*sdaiing resp*etibie proportions, says theTr^un^.
The Yinir mine was dropping seventy stamps for the
month of July. During this period 4650 tons of pre
were crushed, yielding a gross estimated value of
J5239i5O0, of which sum the officers of the company
say about $25,000 will represent the company's profit
upon the month's operations. The Athabasca company comes second with a crushing of 400 tons, and
a clean-up of $17,100 ; and the Granite third, with a
Crushing of 1040 tons, "and a gross returh of $9550,
AIL three of these properties are yet in their early
stages of development, yet their aggregate months
output amounts to the total of $66,000, and at the
present rate of progress it will not be long before the
million mark is reached.
The east fork of Cottonwood Creek is another
quarter from which good reports are being heard.
James Dickey''and- Robert Ca Id well ha ve a; cou pie of
good claims there—the Black Bird and Glad '..Hand
on which considerable work has been done, and with
very encouraging results. On the Glad Hand a 20*
foot tunnel has been run, and sinking is now in
operation, the paystreat increasing as a depth is
attained. Recent specimens of galena taken from
the* bottom of the shaft run $40 in gold, silver and
lead.
THE LARDEAU.
From the Lardeau E»gie.
Parallelling the Cariboo creek slope portion of the
Wagner group, right on the top of a lime dyke
mountain of granitedike .lime.'.lies the Marie mineral
claim, owned by Gus. Johnson and John C McCartney. They have a fine showing of clean galena
ore in a 4 ft. ledge, running from 70 to 100 ozs. in
silver and 84 per cent. lead.
The Galena Creek Mining Co. of Lardeau B. C.:,"
Ltd., is a new concern organizedin Belleville, Out.,
to operate properties in this district.
Messrs Tempieton, Evans, Murray and Culkceu
are doing prospect work on the  Lost Tunnel group,
up the south fork, with  encouraging   results.     The
■'.'■'."•■ f
boys intend to open this property up enough to prove
it, and then either sluff or commence shipping ore
next season.
The returns of the Triune's maiden shipment of
ore to the Trail smelter has been given to the Eagle.
There were 380 sacks of ore, the gross weight of
which   was 42,180   pounds,   the net weight   39,695
pounds, or 405 pounds less   than 20 tons,    The ore
sized up iu these proportions :   Gold, $237.58; silver
;$4';"9$5 95 ; lead, $589.96.   Total gross value, $^iy
45 or, figuring on   a 20-ton basis, $290.67 to the ton.
.■■Transportation   and   smelter charges  amounted to'
$436.65, leaving the net proceeds  $5,376,84, 0r on a
20-ton   basis, $26884   to  the ton,     It costs$toa
ton   to pack   it to Ten»Mile,   $15 to haul it to the
tanding and $22 a ton for freight,  trausportion and
smelter   charges   to   the   C. 1*, R.     The  shipment
was aeeotUpanicd by A. Ferguson, one of the owners
and V.   Lade,   one of the lessees.     They got $20an
ounce for their gold and 61 cents per ounce for their  j
silver,     it is sale to say that every ton of Triune ore
shipped this season will net   at least   $275,003  ton,
after paying $47 a ton for freight and treatment The
Triune,   it must  lie   remembered, « only  about ten
week's bid, and the lessees have over 200 tons blocked

Several Of>cn cuts on the lead of this claim have
exposed a good shewing of galena. It is located mi
the Iron Mask lead on the soutbeast-iude of Hall
creek over on the Duncan slope, near the lime dyke,
and is owned by that well known old-timer, JohnC,

■:■""■■ Su'pt. j/W. Westfall is down from the Old Gold
camp, having successfully piloted another tenderfoot
safely over the scene of action. Mr. Westfall reports
the Primrose looking better than when we were
there last week, more mineralized quartz being encountered "with each shot, indicating that the ore
■ 'body ..'is "not far distant.
Work is also l>eing pushed on the diagonal crosscut in the upper workings of the Old Gold, but it
will be some little time yet before they get under the
big surface showing of galena and pyrites of iroo
above.
•A diagonal crosscut is also being . driven on the
Guinea Gold from the face of the tunnel just driven.
This will tap tie lead at considerable depth and
develop many other characteristics of the mine, from
which a better id?a of future work will be derived.

It has been run  night and day, and will bore its 1% inch hole at the  rate of from 15 to 25 feet daily, according to the  character of the tock being penetrated. Up to  Thursday the drill had made a hole over 575 feet  deep, the intention being to go down about 600 feet.  It will next be utilized in the Old Ironsides mine. It  is understood that the owners have a contract here to  do boring to the extent of at least 2,000 feet" It is  expected that good results will be had from this  method of prospecting.  0      CANYON CREEK.  A representative of the Fra last   week visited   the  placer workings of the Golden   Placer and   Quartz  Mining   Company on   Canyon   Creek, where   work  was   suspended recently   owing   to the   inability of  the pipes to keep the bottom   of the shaft dry   while  digging.

THE NELSON ECONOMIST
v.p;ii
THERE was great interest  manifested in the Fitz-
simpns-Sharkey fight in Nelson  the other night.
Theslugg
rounds, but to the disgust of local sports the battle
was won in two, Fit* being the victor. What source
of pleasure men can derive from witnessing or listen-
"mglo the details of a brutarcontest is more than I
caii under Stan d. So me calf the v'noble art of self defense ^ a science. No doubt professional boxers now
and again get in some very scientific knock-outsr still
Iwouldinot carepto class them w^
tletnen of science. Of course they do not fight; for the
love of the sport, or science; or with the philanthropic
idea of educating their fellow man as to how best-to;
defend himself when attacked by a foot-pad- ^o ;
these professional sluggers fight- for purses. The
purse in this. iristsnee was $25000. In the early days
of the prize ring the nioiTetary!consideratioh was not
by any means commensurate with the punishmeut the
fighting men received. Savers and Hc.c'na u, who- in
turn held the championship of Knglandy fought for a
purse of T^5QTh^ as well as dubbings
■ hi-the. prize ring of to-dayP   y      •!'
Rev. Alexis Jeffries prayed fervently for the success
of his, son, the ex-champion; and  witnessed  some of
his most desperate, battles.      The reverend   father of
sluggers on one occasion travelled   from his home in-
Los Angeles to Chicago to see his younger son, Jack,
knock out Jack Beanscholt at TattersallV    After the
mill the old man went to the Central Passenger /Assop'
ciation and,   presenting his preachers certificate, demanded the privileges which gen tie men of broadcloth
are entitled to.    Questions were asked, however, and"'
when it was learned that Mr Jeffries had journeyed all
the way to Chicago to see a prize  fight,   th- officials
decided be was not the kind of a minister the association accommodates ,      /
The regatta on Saturday was a great success. I am
pleased to  note that aquatic  events   arey growing in
-public favor in Nelson, and that from present indications we will soon be in a position to send a crew to
compete with the oarsmen of the Coast, Winnipeg and
; Toronto. Our local men have rare facilities of becoming proficient oarsmen, and holding .their-.own. with'
any crew which may offer. The services of a professional trainer would be an advantage,., and-T under-
standahat these will be secured next year There is
110 reason why Nelson should not hold one of the more
important aquatic championships.
It also affords me great pleasure to note the success
attending the movement to establish an athletic asso.
ciation in the city. Suitable quarters have been secured arid the furnishings of a-decent gymnasium are
on the way. The young men of Nelson have proved
themselves athletes of the right material. Whether
on the diamond,   in the lacrosse field,   on the cricket
