' KOOTENAY-  Has   a   Mineral    Ou'pui.  of   Upwards   '< i    (if.  Million     Dollars . Every    Mcnth     '   ���      ,'  In   The   Year  'TWO   DOLLARS  A YEAR.  A   GALA   DAY   IN   NELSON.  Its Citizens Tender Lord. and Lady Aberdeen  a Right Royal Reception.  Lord Aberdeen told the people on  Thursday that the arrangements made  for the reception of lady Aberdeen and  himself were unexcelled by any which he  had met with on the occasion of- his present farewell tour of the Canadian cities.  When it is remembered that such a comparison   put   the   people of Nelson into  competition with nearly all the other  cities in Canada,, there is a great dual  said in such a compliment.  The'vice-regal party arrived in Nelson  shortly after 10 o'clock Wednesday evening. They were met at tlie C. P. 11. depot  by the reception committee, aud a very  large number of citi/.ens, and there was  music on tap from the Nelson brass band  and the Scotch pipers. From the depot  party was escorted along Baker, Josephine and Victoria streets to the .Phair  hotel, the greater portion of the way being gaily decked with bunting and illuminated with Chinese lanterns. At the  Phair the vice-regal party found themselves the guests of the city and wore permitted to retire.  On "Wednesday morning, in the presence of several hundred citi/.ens, the address of welcome was read by mayor  Houston. It was a straightforward manly address, happily worded,and free from  unnecessary adulation.. That it expressed  the welcome of the people of Nelson was  shown by the hearty manner in which it  was received.         The Address.  To his excellency the  right  honorable,  the earl of Aberdeen, governor-general of  Canada:  The citizens extend to you .a hearty  welcome; we realize, however, that as  your term of office is about to expire, you  will shortly leave our Dominion and our  pleasure is marred by the knowledge that  this, therefore is your last official visit to  our city.  Knowing the great interest you take in  the welfare of Canada, we feel that it  must be a source of satisfaction to you to  see the evidence of progrees and prosperity throughout the land, aud doubtless in  no other part of the Dominion will you  find this better marked than in our fair  province.  Your satisfaction at the material  growth of Canada must be intensified by  the reflection that it lias gone hand in  baud with an ever increasing loyalty and  affection towards tho mother country;  and that proof of this sentiment was had  a few months ago when, war impending,  Cauada hastened to offer her aid to Great  Britain, so splendidly isolated, but strong  with the support of her colonies. ;  We naturally take pride in drawing,  your attention to the advancement which,  you will perceive, has been made in our  city since your last visit, aud this pride is  increased by the knowledge that, while in  the centre of a mining district, law aud  order prevail to the fullest extent in our  midst, and life and" property'are 'as safe  here as in auy part of the British Empire.  The keen interest you have always  taken in the affairs of British Columbia  leads us to believe that we shall always  have in you a staunch friend of the province, and one whose influence will undoubtedly prove of great benefit to us.  We wish also to welcome her excellency  lady'Aberdeen, to our city, and'to express  our appreciation of the good work she,  has done for Canada.  We shall always view with satisfaction  and follow with deep andabidiug interest  'your work in the other exalted spheres,  which in the future, you will assuredly  occupy at the command of her majesty.  Lord Aberdeen's Reply.  In replying to the welcome of the citizens, lord Aberdeen said: "Mr. Mayor,  ladies and, gentleman: We have been  looking forward with very great pleasure  to our visit to Nelson. As you know, this  is not the first time on which we have  had the satisfaction in being in this great  center of the mining district, and this  pleasure is increased by the hearty and  loyal manner in which you have received  us on this occasion and for the kind expressions of feeling coutained and engrossed in this handsome address. I must  be allowed to ."join with you iu the expressions of satisfaction in regard to the development of the country, alluded to, in  this address, and I think I am justified in  the assertion that the progress of your  city has been of that steady character  which is the best augury for its continuance in the future. One cannot help but  be impressed with the scenery on arriving here, but more important is the situation commercially. .1 refer to the mining  and other resources of the district and  your situation in regard to railways.  Nelson will undoubtedly occupy a most  important place as a railway center. Tlie  hearty reception we have received will  certainly leave in the hearts of lady Aberdeen and myself a most abiding and lasting impression. I now wish to thank you  on behalf of ladyAberdeen and myself for  the hearty welcome which you have given  lis. We are the guests of the City of Nelson, that, I think, is a practical compliment as well as a sign of good will."  How the Day was Spent.  The ladies of the city tendered a recep-  to lady Aberdeen in the Presbj'-terian  church at 10:80 o'clock, where an address  of welcome was read by Mrs. J. Roderick  Robertson. To this the countess'replied  in the course of which she referred to the  desirability of establishing brandies in  Nelson of the National Council of Women  and the Victorian order of nurses.  A public luncheon was given in the  Hume hotel, which was largely attended.  Mayor Houston presided, and after the  toast to the queon had been honored, his  worship proposed the toast to the governor-general in a very neat speech, to  which the guest of the day responded.  The balance of the toast list was made up  as follows: The dominion and provincial  parliaments, W. A. Macdonald. Q_. C; tho  army and navy, H..M Croasdaile; Kootenay and its prosperity, .1. Roderick Robertson; (he ladies, Rev. Robert Frew. -A  toast in honor of the Victorian order of  nurses was (hen received with enthusiasm, to which lady Aberdeen replied.  Lord Aberdeen, in concluding the toast  list, proposed Ihe health of the mayor of  Nelson and the members of the reception  coiumitte, to which niay'ot Houston responded. During tlie luncheon G. L.  Lennox sang "Oh, Canada, My Canada,"  and George Ivydd rendered "Bonnie  Charlie."  During tho day the hose teams gave  the visitors an exhibition of their speed  in making hose connections, and lord  Aberdeen was shown over the Hall Mines  smelter works, .In the evening a large  crowd gave the party several rousing  cheers as the train pulled out of the C. P.  11. station.       Wants to Build a Crematory.  The city clerk this morning received the  following communication which explains  itself: Dear Sir: Mr. George Hoi brook  lias requested us to write to you in regard  to the erection of a crematory in the city,  so that the matter may be laid before the  council of the city. Mr. Holbrook desires  to erect a cream tory to be in operation in  about two mouths which would be  sufficient to consume all the night soil aud  garbage collected round the city. In the  present unsatisfactory condition of affairs  such a place seems a necessity for the  health of the city. Of course as Mr. Holbrook must go to considerable expense he  would like some protection in the matter  and woidd wisli the city to undertake not  to erect any such crematory iu opposition  to him and givo him the work of scavenger for the city at (he scale of prices now  in existence, and if at any time the city  wish to take over the business they can  do so on paying Mr. Holbrook the actual  cost price allowing for wear and tear.  The cost of the crematory will be $705.'  Yours truly, Gai.uhuu & Wilsox.  [The matter will  come before the council on Monday.  Emily Edith a Shipping Mine.  The Silvertonian: At tho end of this  month another permanent shipping mine  will be added to Silverton's list of shippers. This time it is the Emily lildith  group that is to take its place on tlie already large list as a producer, and its  place will l'ank'away up on the roll of  honor. The, Emily Edith property that  some six months ago was known merely  as a remarkably fine prospect, has under  the efficient management of E. Remmel-  meyer been developed into a property  with sufficient ore in sight to justify us in  calling it a mine that has ore to ship, will  ship aud continue shipping. The property  was acquired by purchase by the present  owners late last winter and development  commenced January 30th. Up to the  present time the present owners have  done over 700 feet of underground development on it, consisting of tunnels,  cross-cuts and winzes. ���'������'.':  OPPOSITIONISTS MEET IN VANCOUVER.  The Slocan Boy Secured.  A clear has been consummated which  places tlie Slocan Boy mine in the hands  of the Whitewater   mines, limited,   the  London   syndicate, - represented    by   J.  Roderick Robertson of this city. The  Slocan Boy wasowiied largely by Spokane  people, but has not been worked for some  time. The deal is for a working bond and  the amount involved is not made public.  Robert Easson was one of the vendors.  W. E. Maun, one of the Whitewater  owners, consummated the deal aud the  option or bond was given to John L.  Retallaek, who is also interested in the  Whitewater syndicate. It is said that  work is to begin at once.  Mining Excitement on Isaac Creek.  Isaac Creek, about Hi miles down the  Arrowhead branch line from Revelstoke,  is the scene of much mining activity at  the present time, owing to the reported  discovery of some very rich leads, which  from samples of the ore brought to Revelstoke have assayed as high as $1.72 to the  ton. It is understood that there are  nearly 50 prospectors now in the neighborhood.  Shall Women Be Made Foresters?  A number of 1.0. F. lodges have fovored  the admission of women as members of  that order. The latest to approve of it is  the Manitoba High Court lodge in session  nt'Winnipeg. The proposal is. one of the  chief questions to be considered at the  session of the supreme court,-which opens  in Toronto, Aug. 25. At present it is not  more than a recommendation of committees, approved by subordinate courts.  Legal Fight over the Great Western Funds.  The shareholders of the Great Western  mine are suing the secretary-treasurer of  the company to secure a division of the  money secured by the sale of the company's property to theB. A. C. From the  affidavits presented in the suit there is  not much prospect of the shareholders  securing much of the money, as there are  claims against tlie company which in the  aggregate amount to as much as that received from the R A. C.  News-Advertiser: Judging from their  past exploits it is not improbable that  some of the government organs may in  the course of the next day or two fill  their columns with all sorts of sensational  falsehoods as' to what occurred at the  meeting on Wednesday of members of  the opposition party in Vancouver from  all parts of the province. From what  these newspapers said in reference to a  previous meeting, it may be anticipated  that they will again attempt to delude  their readers by stories of disagreements  among the members of the opposition  party and all sorts, of exaggerated tales  of what it will do when it succeeds the  present moribund administration at Victoria. It is easy to understand- the purport of such dishonesty, especially at a  time when writers who are ashamed to  circulate such reports realise that their  avenues of employment are likely soon to  be closed by the dismissal of their masters  from office. They lack even the little  sense which would cause them to realise  that'it is in their own interest to be  cautious, and honest iu any statements  they may make.  We may, however? assure our readers  that the meetings held Wednesday of  prominent workers in the opposition  party were not only entirely harmonious  but the situation throughout the province  ���as shown by the reports received���i.s  most satisfactory. The victory at the  polls is being followed up, and there is no  doubt that several seats now claimed by  government supporters will be wrested  from them and go to swell the opposition  majority.  One pretended bete noir to tlie success  of the opposition party, according to  these unscrupulous writers, was the question of-leadership. This will be satisfactorily arranged when the results of the  Cassiar election are known at a meeting  at which the elected members of the opposition in the new legislature will be  present. .  MUNICIPAL   MATTERS.-  ROSSLAND   ORE   SHIPMENTS  For the Present Week; the Greatest in the  ' Camp's History.  The ore shipments this week promise to  be the largest in the history of Rossland.  Although tho' week includes but five days,  yet the shipments amounted to 1,705 tons,  of which the Le Roi furnished 1,075 tons,  the War Eagle 700, the Centre Star 100,  the Iron Mask 15 aud the Giant 15. The  last named was the maiden shipment  from the property this year. The Le Roi  is now shipping as high'as 205. tons a day,  aud shipments range about $30 in gold,  three per cent, copper and- two ounces in  silver, which gives a total value as follows : Gold, $30: copper at ll;/c, $7.05;  silver at 59c, $1.18; total, .$38.23. The  shipments of Lo Roi ore for the six  months ending July aggregated 22,970  tons., The War Eagle during the fmst six  months of the year produced 11,889 tons,  and. according to the last annual report of  the'manager, the value of the ore would  be divided as follows: Gold, $19.73; silver, $1.93; copper, $6.01; total, $27.07.  LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  tive to support all the tunnels and drifts  thoroughly with timber, of which there,  is a great abundance on the property.  The present output is about 35 tons per  day (about 12,000 tons per annum). The  net value of the ore delivered at the  smelter is ,$55 per ton, which gives when  the working cost is deducted, ii net profit  of $10 per ton. Special expert' reports  have been published concerning, the  Whitewater group, notably those of  Samuel S. Fowler, M. 10.,' dated at Nelson,  B. C, Januarys,' 1898; and of J. D'. Kendall, dated at Vancouver, B. C, December 12, 1897. Mr. Fowler after presenting  in detail the data of the mines development places the value of the Whitewater  claim proper at $585,000. Mr. Kendall in  an equally exhaustive analysis of the property estimates the value to be $595,000.  HERO   FINDLATER.  At the meeting of the council on Monday afternoon alderman Teetzel reported  that the finance committee was not in  favor of purchasing the grand stand  erected on the recreation grounds.  A communication was received from  deputy attorney general Smith acknowledging receipt of the city engineer's report upon tho Hamilton Powder company's magazine and stating that the  same will receive the consideration of the  attorney general.  The council decided to purchase forty  acres of land from the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company for cemetery purposes.-'  Mayor Houston was authorized to close  the deal at a price not to exceed $30 per  acre. The laud is situated to the south of  the city. "        .  The city engineer reported that there  would be required for the proposed  .sewerage extension . 0000 feet of S inch  pipe, 1200 feet 12 inch pipe and 975 feet of  15 inch pipe, 50 or 00 barrels of Portland  'cement aud 35,000 bricks. The estimated  cost for all materials was $1900.  The city engineer re ported that the excavations for water pipe on Water street  had been completed at a cost of seven  cents per lineal foot. ;....."  The Boy Orator Heard From.  It is reported in Ottawa thatW.W.B.  Mclunes, M.P.,<is anxious to get into the  Opposition cabinet when formed in the  province of British ..Columbia.0 and. to  retire from"'the,.dominion house. The  members of the opposition should resent  any attempt on the part of the boy orator  to crowd himself into .the provincial cabinet. ; When the. result of',the contest in  this province was iu doubt the boy orator  would uot declare himself one way or the  other. Now that the opposition party  has virtually won the fight they should  be careful not to mistake camp followers  for veterans.  Dunsmuir as a Minister.  Dr. 'Walkem seems to have been rather  been badly shaken up over his defeat, and  is committing himself tosome queer views  in the editorial columns of his Wellington  Enterprise. Referring to Mr. Dunsmuir's  election iu Com ox he first says Mr. Dunsmuir had not the slightest trouble in persuading the electors he was the man for  Clomox, and then says the "experience  and knowledge of human nature gained  by Mr Dunsmuir in that contest" lit him  for a seat in the cabinet of the new  government. The Enterprise is growing  funny.  She Flagged the Train.  Mrs. Thomas Barrows, wifeof section  foreman Barrows, of Wigwam, prevented  what might have been a serious wreck for  a Canadian Pacific rail way freight train  last week. Mrs. Barrows looking out of  her window at 1 o'clock Wednesday  morning, noticed a huge tree lying across  the railroad track. Just as she opened  the front door, she heard a train approaching, and without even stopping to  put on her boots she ran a distance of  nearly a quarter of a mile bare-footed and  flagged the train.

Engineers who spent some  time in looking over the ground pronounce the Summit creek route impracticable. The lowest .pass they could find  wa.-j at an elevation of 5,000 feet, iu addition to which there were the attendant  difficulties iu the way of snowslides. ���  Rev. A. A. McLeod, a Baptist missionary, who is about to return to the mission  field in India, will deliver an address in  the Presbyterian church on Monday evening, to which the people of Nelson are  invited.    Thero will be special singing.  Judge Forin and police magistrate  Crease have been added to the directorate  of the Kootenay Lake General.Hospital  society, the former as secretary and the  latter as treasurer. These offices were  rendered vacant by the resignation of A.  .11. Clements.  Among the local happenings of the  week was the arrival of a daughter in the  household of Dr. LaBau.  The cantata " Under the Palms," which  was rendered in the Presbyterian church  on Tuesday evening, proved a very enjoyable entertainment. Thomas Park in sou,  whe- had the affair in hand, is so well  pleased with the result that he is seriously thinking of taking up something  in the musical line. In response to a  general request Tuesday evening's programme will be repeated ��� in the Presbyterian church Wednesday evening.  Jesse Bigelow arrived in Nelson on  Thursday for repairs. He was thrown  from a spirited horse early in the week,  and received a severe cut in the head  before he could disengage his foot from  the stirrup.  C. G. Dixon, general agent for the Great  .Nqrtherh Railway at Spokane, who was  in Nelson this week, says that the Great  Northern company was the.purchaser of  the Corbin railway system, and that the  Great Northern will take the roads over  and operate them.from August 1st.  The Canadian Pacific Railway Company  has added a new train to its transcontinental service. This is known as the  Steamboat Express and makes connection  with the company's steamers at Fort  William, so that passengers can step  from the railway coach to the steamer.  At Owen Sound, the eastern terminus of  the lake trip, connection is made with  another steamboat express, and quick  time made to Toronto. Passengers from  Nelson can make connection with the  steamboat express by leaving Nelson on  Tuesday Thursday or Sunday evening at  0.10 p.m.  J. A. Mara has left for the Stickine, aud  from there goes north to St. Michael on  his river steamer Stickine Chief.  i   well-  the Do-  Dominion Election in Sight.  Ottawa, July .19��� There i.s  founded rumor current here that  minion government may dissolve parliament and go to tlie people before another  session. The present parliament, which  was elected in June, 1890, has still three  years more to run. The principal reason  for the dissolution so soon is the English  precedent of having an appeal to the people during the recess after the passage of  a new franchise measure,  chise Act, which became  sion, largely extends the  now more than 'half the  tion of the dominion have been given  right of manhood suffrage, a matter  existing heretofore.

Some idea of the vast working depth  which maybe expected from the ore veins  of the Slocan can be had. by the description of the present conditions at the  'Whitewater  mine.   The development of  of the Whitewater vein has been carried  on through seven tunnels varying in  length from .100 to 500 feet. The highest  tunnel is 500 feet above the seventh, and  all are connected by winzes or shafts giving perfect ventilation to the entire mine.  Because of the softand shattered character  of tho formation, little blasting is necessary, hut for the same reason it isimpcra-  Tough Treatment of Miners iu Japan.  A   case   of   wholesale   murder,    which  seems hardly possible in this enlightened  age, has just come to .light iu Japan, the  victims being 20 sulphur miners, and their  murderer, for he must beheld responsible  for their death, no less a person than  the  wealthy owner of the  mine, K. Miikuzu.  He did   not go out and  shoot them nor  order anybody to do so, but he left them  on an island to starve to death.    The nieu  were sent  by Mr. Makuzo to   work on a  sulphur"mine on an island called  Chirri-  pori, off the coast of Hokaido'.   The men  were'supplied with a few months' rations  and    no    more    notice   taken   of   them  until a short time ago, the owner of the  mine received an order for a ship load of  sulphur.    He then'sent  a steamer to the  island.   The crew of the steamer being  unable to see any signs of life, paid a visit  to the mine, and in the rude cabins found  the  bodies   of   tho  20  miners,   who  had  starved to death.   An- official   investigation is to be held.   As there was  no food  of any kind on the island'and as vessels  seldom pass in sight of it  the  men were  entirely helpless.  SLOCAN   MINING   NOTES.  The Canadian group will commence  shipping in a few days. The ore will be  packed to Sandon over the Canadian  trail. Hammond Bros, have the contract.  Several of the stock holders are expected  to arrive in New Denver shortly to personally iuspect the property.   '  The Last Chance will ship 100 tons over  the Noble Five tram. The ore houses and  tunnels are full of ore taken out in developing. L. C. Lane has taken,the contract  and will have twelve animals ou the trail.  About twenty, men will be at work on -the  property and a littlestoping will be done.  Six feet of clean ore was found on the  Payne early last week. The strike was  made crosscutting in the hanging wall in  the No. 3 level at 300 feet depth on the  Maid of Erin claim. There are 100 men  working on the Payne.    ;  The Ajax has added more ore cars, rails,  etc., to its outfit and is gradually increasing its force. Additional eastern capital  has recently been secured and the' management is now in a position to go ahead  with a thorough and systematic development of the property. A new tunnel was  started last week. , ���  The present force at work on the Golden  Wedge has been increased by 10 men.  Operations have j list begun on the construction of a 150-foot tunnel. It is the  intention of the owners, the B. C. Gold  Fields Company, to tap the ledge at a  considerable depth on the Bonanza, a  claim adjoining the Golden Wedge.  A rich strike is reported from the  Tamarac. It is said that a paystreak  measuring three inches has been uncovered which will run 1,000 ounces in silver.  Five inches of galena running 220 ounces  in silver has been struck at a depth .of  500 feet on the Sovereign after running a  tunnel of S00 feet.  The Enterprise people are building a  wharf at Ten Mile to accommodate the  loading of ore barges. The mine is ship-  ing 1,000 tons of ore to Omaha.  The Dardanelles mine is expected to reopen on the 15th of July.  The Silver Bell in the -Best basin has a  force of eight men at work.  Mining Fatality at the Silvor King.  John Oliver, a miner employed at Silver  King mine lost his life last night in a  peculiar manner, he, in a hurry to get  through with the work on bund, went  into the mine tunnel too soon after the  previous shot, found the gas too strong  so lie and hjs Imnte named Harris attempted to retrace their steps but both  fell overcome by the fumes. The miners  candle in the hands of Oliver did not go  out when lie fell unconscious, but set fire  to his clothes, lie was found by the next  shift going on. Dr. Forin was notified  and left about 10 p. in., but the poor fellow died before the doctor arrived. The  remains will be sent east to Iron Mountain, Mich, where he leaves a family to  mourn his loss.  Drowned in the Columbia.  Albert McCarger, of Waterloo, was  drowned in the Columbia river last Sunday evening by tho capsizing of a boat.  Several others were thrown into the  water at the same time, but managed to  reach shore. Neither McCurder's body  nor the boat have boon recovered. It was  at first feared two of McCargo's companions were also drowned but  since been heard from.  they  His  Caused  Career on the English Stage  Trouble in Official Circles.

By his own account,  for example, Findlater continued to play  his pipes after he had fallen, from sheer  force of habit.'without much thought, of  what had happened   to him or of  what  was passing about him.   The battle over,  correspondents send glowing accounts of  his valor in their telegrams; and succeeding letters,  public and private,  add yet  more glowing details.    By the time he is  sent   back home to  hospital, his picture  has appeared in   a hundred newspapers  and  periodicals, verse-makers have celebrated him and vocalists in the music hall  have sung his praises. ' As soon as   he i.s  convalescent, ho is duly interviewed, aiid  the lively immagination of the inquirer  supplies him with a pretty series of sensations, before and after his heroic act. that  he gratefully   substitutes for   the  blind  instinct that  has enabled  him to achieve  it.   Then he receives,the fine honor of the  Victoria ...Cross,  with a  pension of  ��10 a  year, and  forthwith   vanishes  from  the  public  interest.    Jt recalls him  again, if  too many  years have not elapsed,  when  he dies in   penury or even   in the workhouse.    Sentimental .people   aud   a   few  oflicers iu the   army usually   seize upon  such occasions for discourse as to the ingratitude  with   which  England rewards  its humbler heroes.  Until Findlater left the hospital- he  dutifully followed all these precedents,  and only the shrewdest detected in him  slight symptoms of megalomania and  much stronger desires, as befit a Scotchman, to turn his heroism to profit. His  ambition, it appears, was the purchase of  a little shop in his native city of Aberdeen, and the eager manager of a music  hall opened the way for him. For some  weeks a so-called dramatic sketch, which  ended with a representation of the charge  at Dargai, bad been nightly played at the  music hall in question with mild approval  from audiences that might have been  more numerous. Forthwith ..Findlater  was engaged to appear in it, clumsily repeating all that he had done in the actual  battle. The house was crowded; the  piper was receiving enough money to put  shops, not to say workhouses, out of the  future, and a long tour of the music halls  of the three kingdoms, the colonies, and  even-.the United States, stretched alluringly before him.  These roseate visions endured for barely  a week. There was protesting outcry in  the clubs, the newspapers, the army. So  to market heroism in a variety show, so  to make the Victoria Cross a "property"  for a "turn" was not in accord with the  traditions of the British army. Pressure  from "high quarters," in the flesh, the  Duke of Fife and Viscount Woiseley, was  put'upon- the manager of the music hall  and upon Findlater, and he left the stage.  A part of the censorious were appeased,  but another declared that since the war  office had deprived.the piper of one means  of livelihood it should provide him with  more fitting employment. It proffered  him the place of gatekeeper at Balmoral  at the humble wage of .18 shillings a week,  eked out by the honor of service'in the  Queen's household. All seemed happily  settled until Findlater, who had tasted  the excitement of nightly appearances before applauding hundreds and who was  thus earning what seemed to him riches,  refused the post bluntly and sulked away  to Aberdeen, where his fellow-townsmen  received him with sympathetic cheers.  The passion forthe music halls is strong  in him, and if the " pressure from high  quarters" keeps him out of them in England and in Scotland there are countries  where that pressure is powerless.  Winding up tlie Ibex Company,  lie Ibex .Mining Company. In the winding up proceedings Messrs. King, Trethe-  way and O'Brien, who each registered on  the books of the company as the owners  of 50,000 shares of the capital stock of the  company without having paid anything  for them (as far as can be ascertained  from the books) were placed on the list of  contributories. Wednesday morning Mr.  Cassidy appiiod to Mr. Justice Drake at  Victoria to have their names removed  from the list of contributories, but his  lordship refused the application, saying  that sufficient grounds had not been  shown for removing their names from the  list. It i.s likely a new motion will be  made. ���  The New Postal Notes.  Officials of the money order branch at  Ottawa have completed arrangements for  the establishment of the postal note  system, and within a few days three  denominations will be on hand. There  will be sixteen denominations altogether,  ranging from twenty cents to five dollars,  but owing to delay in printing them it is  impossible to issue all at the same time.

SA'I'UHOAY   MOiiNIiVG IUI.V iS. 1898  Di'ui.vc the past few months the people  of Kootenay have heard a frreat deal from  the   Liberal   politicians    respecting   the  tfreat injustice done to fciiis section of the  province by premier Turner's remarkable  redistribution bill.    This was an evil for  which the Liberals referred to were in no  way responsible, and in a measure powerless to remedy. There is however an even  more glaring injustice done to this section  of the province by the- representation accorded to it iu the house of commons, and  if there is any siucereity in the cry of the  Liberal   press and   politicians, an honest  attempt  will be  made at ouce to secure  the complete re-arrangement of the representation  of the province in  the federal  house.    As matters stand at present the  province   has but six representatives iu  the house of commons, and one half of  this   number is   assigned  to   Vancouver  [sland.    Of these two  represent the city  of   Victoria   and  one  Nanaimo   district.  Of the  remaining  three   representatives  one is assigned to liurrard district which  includes  the city  of  Vancouver,   one to  Westminster district which also includes  ���N'ew  Westminster city,  while the  third  member is supposed to represent the two  Kootenays,   three   Vales,   two   Lillooots  and Cariboo.    What   do   the   people   of  Kootenay  think of such au arrangement  as this?   If they consider that the people  of the two Kootenays, the three   Vales,  the two Lillooets aud Cariboo are deserving of more representation in the 'federal  parliament than is accorded  to Nanaimo  district or Vancouver Island, or of more  than one-half the representation accorded  to the city of Victoria, the time for them  to  protest is at once.    While it is true  that the present apportionment of representation  is'the work of the late Conservative  ministry, it .should   be  borne  in  mind that  the work of curing its defects  will in the natural order of things fall' to  the.present ministry.   This matter should  be  thoroughly discussed  by the press of  Kootenay so that the claims of the district for additional representation   may  be   thoroughly appreciated by the politicians of the east.  Tin-; wisdom of the eitj' council in passing the lire limits by-law i�� generally conceded by the people; of Nelson today, although tliwe was considerable feeling  'when rhe by-law was first .introduced.  The people recognize now that to this bylaw is hugely due the substantial nature  of the buildings which have gone up since  it came into force, as well as the several  brick block* now, in course of erection.  When these blocks are completed Nelson  will have more brick business houses than  all the other cities in Kootenay combined.  The substantial nature of the buildings  going ii)) in Xelson is one of the host evidences of the faith of capital in the future  of the,city. The \isitor cannot fail to  .iiolc i)w difference in I.he class of buildings in this city as compared with li.os.s-  land. The canst; for this difference lies in  the fact t hat Nelson lias hail a fire limit  by-law in effect for several months while  Kosslanci hfis not. The effect may be  summed up in the statement that the one  city may at any time be wiped out by  fire, while in Nelson, with substantial  bricks sprinkled through the business  poitioh. the danger of such a calamity is  very remote.  1'rk.mikk Hardy has called a,'special  session of the Ontario legislature for the  purpose of protecting his slender majority. There have been some 05 election  protests filed in Ontario, and in a great  many instances the Liberal members  would be unseated should the courts determine that special constables have not  the right to vote. Such a decision would  convert Hardy's majority into a minority,  and to avoid this difficulty a special session of the legislature has been called for  the purpose of passing an act declaratory  of the fact that it was not the intention  of the law-makers to deprive constables  of the right to vote. That Hardy will  succeed in this there is no doubt. The  Conservative opposition is the strongest  in years, but the members of the opposition cannot very, well obstruct since the  courts cannot try their protests so long as  the legislature is in session. To establish  a precedent for this the Liberal press has  thrown over the judgment of Sir Richard  Cartwright and accepted the policy of  the lato Sir John Macdonald.  rr'J_.Mij._it TfKNr.it is assured of the -support-.of the  two  Cassiar  members.    The  manner in   which  premier Turner  made  himself solid in Cassiar may not be altogether creditable, but  the fact  remains  that the nominations in Cassiar have been  held, and that there have been no opposition candidates nominated.   Save a  man  named  MacTavish.    Captain John Irving  and    C.    W.   ]).   Clifford    were    nominated as straight government candidates,  witli INIacTavish as an  independent government candidate,   who  it  is said   will  withdraw.     There    is    much   complaint  from   the   opposition   loaders   over    the  manner in which the Cassiar nominations  were   held.-   When   the   fads   are   fully  known it may be  that it  will  be shown  that there is much reason for complaint,  but the fact which stands out more plainly than anything else at  present-is that  the opposition loaders have allowed themselves to be tricked.    With a majority of  two   over  government  and   independent  members combined,  the opposition leaders virtually allowed  the two remaining  seats to go by default.    The government  may have its share of blame in  the matter of the Cassiar nominations, but the  part played by the opposition   leaders is  far from creditable to them as politicians.  The Knglish law has always forbidden  the marriage of a man to the sister of his  deceased wife: Jt has compelled thousands of couples to emigrate to some English colony in order to be married. It  has been as stupid as stubborn to cling to  cling to an old. bogy like that, but it is  now done away with.  Tiik increase in the trade of the dominion for the fiscal year, which ended on the  30th of .June last, is unprecedented in the  history of this country. Last year's trade  exceeded that of any other previous year,  but the figures for IS9K are still more  satisfactory, showing, as they do, an increase of $11,000,000 iu aggregate trade as  compared with 1S07. The increase in the  revenue from the duty collected is over  $2,000,000. The,official statement; as prepared by the customs department, only  shows an increase of $l,!):_S,_.(i:., but this  does not fake into account the $1."50.000  which has been received by the department from Vukon, nor the $7(3,000 which  is on the way to Ottawa. None of the  duties collected in Vukon are accounted  for, and'the amount from this source will  be about $2.30,000.  Tiik all-Canadian' railway to the Vukon  is not a dead issue. The action of ihe  senate' in throwing out the railway bill  will have the effect- of delaying matters,  but that is all. Premier Laurier has announced that during the present recess  the government will prepare a. new  scheme for carrying the undertaking  through to completion and have the  same ready for submission to the commons  early next session. Premier Laurier says  that the' Edmonton route is not seriously  considered at Ottawa. This will probably be news to premier Turner.  Tiiosi-_ who desire to save the rebate allowed for the prompt payment of taxes  should see to it that they make their payments at the city hall on or before  August 31 st. The rate imposed on all  who pay before the end of next month is  ten mills. Those who delay payment beyond August olst will bo charged eleven  mills. The rate of taxation is lower than  that of any other city iu this .province.  This is altogether due to the fact that the  management of civic affairs is in capable  hands.   Tiiiourc is more building going ou in  Nelson at present than in all the other  towns of southern Kootenay combined.  More: The buildings which are being  erected in Nelson are of a more substantial character than those which grace the  streets of any of Nelson's rivals.- Nelson  is steadily taking its proper place among  the cities of Kootenay���the commercial  metropolis of Kootenay.

The speech of Joseph Chamberlain, advocating an alliance between f��reat Britain and the United States, has attracted  so much attention that many persons, in  discussing the subject, recall the visit  which Mi: Chamberlain made to Washington in hSST as chairman of the fisheries  commission. He was the social lion of  the hour. A Baltimore lady who met him  tells the following story: "'Ho was a big.  burly man, caring -<o,little for his appearance that at one of the most, fashionable  dinners of the season his cravat got  turned lo almost under his ear. and his  shirt ~tud became unfastened, and he sat  calmly oblivion* l<i eii her accident - Mi1-'  brains and charm in conver.-ation won  him friends wherever he,went.

Tiii-:iik are some people in Nelson who  complain of municipal extravagance in  the matter of the entertainment by the  city of lord and lady Aberdeen on  Thursday, tt was not to be supposed  that the action of the city council, in  making the governor-general and party  the guests of the city and in providing a  suitable reception for them, would meet  with the approval of everyone. Jt is safe  to say, however, that the complaints recorded against the council will be few  compared with those which would have  beeu made had the city council adopted  any different plan. The reception tendered by the citizens of Nelson to lord  and lady Aberdeen was one befitting the  place held by the visitors in the opinion  of the people of Canada, and none need  apologize for what it cost.  Wkli.s, the defeated opposition candidate in northeast Kootenay, is made of  pretty good stuff. He was defeated by a  man upon whose support he relied. The  successful candidate's majority wasa narrow one.- There were certain irregularities committed which were sufficient in  themselves to upset the election, but  Wells has announced that he will not be  a party to a protest.- He says, that his  opponent got a majority of the votes and  that is sufficient for him. When it is remembered that the party in whose interest Wells made the race, won a majority  of the seats contested for, and that in the  event of reopening the constituency ��� he.  would be almost certain of election, there  is much to applaud in Wells' manliness.  D. W. Hkhh.vs, who for many 'years  filled the speaker's chair in the provincial  legislature, and who may be regarded as  an authority on parliamentary law, has  expressed an opinion as to what course  the lieutenant-governor should follow in  view of the recent defeat of the Turner  government. The ex-speaker'says, that  the lieutenant-governor should' refuse to  sanction the payment of special warrants  or confirm appointments made since the  (ith instant. He; should also demand that  negotiations for the issue of the $���"),000,000  loan should be suspended'aud a cable sent  to London lo that effect at once.  Tiik newspapers of Spain have resorted  to their old trick of bringing the press  censor to time. Such war news as they  receive, which is not creditable to the  Spanish arms, the censor promptly suppresses. The newspapers now make no  effort to fill up the spaces made vacant by  the censor, and in cousctpience several  blank columns appear in the papers. The  people, by this 'method, know that there  were columns of matter which the censor  would not allow them to read, and there  is consequently no limit to their forebodings.

STEEBT,    NELSON"  Joseph Martin who was returned as one  of   Vancouver's   representatives   iu   the  provincial legislature  seems to be a politician  without a  party.'   J. C. McLagan  of the Vancouver World says that Martin  is  not a Liberal, and   there are several  Manitoba  Conservatives in ; Nelson   who  say that he is not a Conservative, and yet  Martin has  been  in  public life for many  year's and taken  an  active  part in Canadian   politics.    The Turner government's  organs pronounce Martin an annexationist  and   the Manitoba  Conservatives so  far  agree with  this as to say that if Martin  can find a way to annex British Columbia  to himself he  will do so.   The man who  has caused all this fuss in  provincial politics was born at Milton, Ontario, in 1.852,'  and is, therefore, only 40 years of age. He  began  life  as  a teacher, passed through  the Toronto Normal, taught in  Ottawa,  and in  1SS2, after a   law course, was admitted  to  the  Manitoba' bar on  his removal to that  province.   His power as,a  debater at  once  brought him into prominence, and to his reputation as a speaker  was  quickly added  that of a man tenacious in the extreme in whatever he under?  took..  He entered the legislature of Manitoba' in  1S8-J,   helped   Mr. .Greenway  to  pound,   the   Harrison   ministry���the survival   of   the   old   Norquay   regime-to  pieces, and  in   I8S8 on   the  formation of  the Greenway government took ofliee as  attorney-general.    This position Mr. Martin held till April, 1801, when he withdrew  from the government.    It was Mr. Martin  who introduced and  carried   through the  Manitoba   house   the    famous   national  school    law,   which   abolished   the   dual  school system, and afterwards, because of  the efforts of tlie  late   Dominion government to coerce  Manitoba into  restoring  that   system,   set   the   whole   Dominion  aflame.    In 1801 Mr. Martin was an unsuccessful candidate   for  the   Dominion parliament against  T.  M.   Daly  in Selkirk,  and in ISO.'! he carried  Winnipeg in a bye-  election, going to Ottawa as the lirst. Liberal ever elected  from that city.

The Monroe doctrine was denounced as a menace of unlimited rapine,  though it distinctly respected  tho sovereignity of European powers, in all their  existing possessions.    Now, lord Jersey, a  reputed candidate for our governor-generalship, lays  it  down  with  apparently  general    acquiescence,    that    a     "high-  spirited nation,'" if it regards its neighbor  as a  nuisance, litis  a right  to  give  him  notice of ejection, and take forcible possession of his domain.   The use of Hawaii  by the United States, before, annexation  for the purposes of war, was hardly consistent  with   public  right.    Yet  nobody  demurred, -Anglo-Saxon   alliance   having  tied all tongues.   Nor is international law  the only subject  in  regard  to   which a  striking   change   of  opinion   has   taken  place, and on which  people once deemed  too advanced, and  who were exposed  to  obloquy on that account, iind  themselves  suddenly left behind.    If the enthusiasts  of Anglo-Saxon union, instead of merely  repeating an attractive phrase, will  consider what it means, they will lind that it  means,  so far as  external relations  are  concerned, something very like  annexation to tho United States.

The war has plainly revealed to us the  formidable power of ironclad ships.   The  only limit to it, so far as the sea and the  seaboard are concerned, appears to bo tlie  necessity of coaling.    If a  lleet  of  ironclads   has   coaling   stations , every where,  there is no assignable limit to its' power.  Seaboard cities, unless they can  be,fortified at enormous expense, will henceforth  be always   insecure.   The nation  which  has many of them, or to which they are  of vital importance, will live always  in  fear   of attack.     The range of a ship's  guns and the great destructiveness of projectiles are such  that it would seem, no  ordinary coast defences, such as forts or  mines, would not avail.   The fort is at a  disadvantage because the vessel is not at  rest.   The only thing, saving torpedoes,  to  which  the ironclad ship seems to  be  vulnerable   i.s  vertical  lire, striking her  unarmored deck, to which she can  very  seldom    be    exposed.    Accordingly    all  nations are competing with each other in  multiplication of these ships.    It was said  that at the Jubilee review  there was a  line of men-of-war thirty miles long: this,  besides all the ships at the out stations.  Yet, lord Charles Be restore! is crying out  that the  nation   is' defenceless,   and  demanding the construction or more ironclads.    More ironclads, no doubt will be  built; the other nations .will  vie  in  the  race, aud so it will go on till an indefinite  amount of the products of labor is wasted  ��� in these engines of destruction.    Between  jingoism and ironclads, the civilized world  seems  in  danger  of relapsinj.  into  barbarism armed  by  the skill of a scientific  civilization.    If any man of science could  invent an easy and certain method of destroying these pests, so as to rid us of the  dangers from  them, and the temptation  to  war   which   the   possession   of   them  brings with it, he would be not the least  least among the benefactors of mankind.  Reports that Mr. Chamberlain is going,  to leave the government, however persistent, maybe safely disregarded, ft is  evident that he has given umbrage to  some of his colleagues, as a man playing  his own cards, is sure to do. But the government, if it could afford to deprive .itself:  of his parliamentary ability, could not afford the scandal of his dismissal: while  Mr. Chamberlain, if lie seceded, would  not carry a single adherent. He is watching for the departure of Lord Salisbury,  which is pretty sure to be soon brought  about by excessive labor tuid 'broken  health, lie intends then to come out as a  minister of imperial aggrandizement and  war, in which he believes lie can carry tlie  country with him. He proposes, it is  said, to settle accounts with a strong  hand, either with Russia or France, and  particularly with France, as she thwarts  his designs in Central Africa, lie fancies  himself probably a second Chatham.  But in Chatham's time England was not  absolutely dependent on foreign supplies  for food, or to anything like the present  extent for the raw material of her industries; nor had she to encounter any powerful navy, except that of France, whose  seamen, under tlie old system of warfare,  were alwtiys inferior to her own. The  tide of jingoism i.s at; present running  very high-in Great Britain, and it is  swelled by the prospect of having American jingoism as its partner. Upon its  crest Mr. Chamberlain (loats joyously.  But before Lord Salisbury resigns, the  hour of national reflection may come.  Why Ho will   not   Become   Governor-General  of tho Dominion ol' Canada.  The   astounding   statement  that   lord  Wolseley   will   vacate  the   post of commander   in  chief   to  become  viceroy of  Canada, would hardly need contradiction  but for the persistence with which the report  has  been  circulated,    if  it were a  couple of years later the story might be  likely   enough,   for   then  lord   Wolseley  would bo completing his term of office at  the   head   of   the   army.     But  that   he  should  leave an  appointment  which   he  has coveted  more than all others, which  ho  would   hold   rather  than  be  king of  England, is surely impossible.    This  is a  first strong reason for denying the rumor.  Another is, that to accept other duties  now would be tun (.anion tit to a confession  that he had tired of his present employment, and that also would be hard to believe.     Whatever   his   disappointments,  and they have been  more bitter than arc  generally conceived:   whatever  he  may  have suffered from   the  want of proper  backing in his urgent demands for reforms  and increase in the army, and here again  his cross has been hard to bear���in .spite  of all   this  he would not  turn his hand  from the plough while-there remains one  single chance of carrying his poiuts.   The  time is fast approaching when army matters must absorb   public attention.    The  panaceas lately proposed  have produced  little or no effect; recruiting languishes,  the poor bribe offered to the youth of the  nation litis  not yet  stimulated  them  to  to enlist more largely, and the army  is  just where it was a year ago, altogether  inadequate to tho duties imposed on  it.  Lord Wolseley will  not willingly desert  his post when these burning questions remain undecided.  On the other hand, some specious arrangements may be offered to give probability to the rumor. It has been urged  that the increased income of the viceroy  would be a temptation. This is a purely  personal matter, ou which it is almost  impertinent to touch, No doubt the income alio ted to the commander-in-chief is  but a. sorry recompense for so great a  charge, but governors and governor-generals do not find it easy to save out of  their allowance if they take a proper  view of the duties of hospitality, as would  certainly be the case with lord and lady  Wolseley.  Another reason alleged is that in the  changes likely to follow, it would be found  to be possible to send the duke of Con-  naught to Ireland as commander of the  forces, a measure long recommended, and  on sound political grounds. This would  imply the promotion of lord Roberts to  be the head of the army, a very proper  proceeding, no doubt, and one that might  be expected^ if a vacancy occurred any  time soon. Vet it may be doubted whether  lord Roberts would be quite at home at  Pall Mall. Tlie fact that he is one of our ;  most foremost soldiers gives him undeniable claims to be the next commander-in-  chief, for the principle has been pretty  well established that that post in future  will go to the best general iu the whole  army. But lord Roberts' experience was  exclusively Lndian until a year or two  ago. lie would at first, at any rate, be  something of a plaything in Pall Mall, a  little lost among its routine aud red tape,  and for some time very much at the  mercy of the permanent officials.  Remodeling the Senate.  Hon. C W. Ross has a plan for increasing the usefulness of the senate. He  would have the senate cease to be a mere  court. As a matter of practice it would  be a great advantage if all charters for  financial corporations and even for railways were initiated in the senate and  thoroughly discussed, re vised and amended  before reaching the house of commons.  Measures of a non-political character, such  as an insolvency bill, might also originate  in the senate; in fact, any measure not  distinctively included in the party programme might, as a matter of practice,  be.relegated to the senate, provided always the senate had the ability and experience to deal with it it. Several advantages would arise from this practice.  (I) The members of the house of commons  would have more time to give to the consideration of large questions embodying  the policy of the party in power. (2) The  work of the committees of the house of  commons would be greatly lightened aud  the members would on that account have  more leisure to give to careful preparation for discussion. 'Whether the creation  of such a body out of the senate would  not require a complete reorganization of  that body is a question whiohshould first  be considered. As at present constituted  the senate is representative ol nothing  save the fact that the great majority of  its members were useful to a political  party which has been swept out of existence by the voice of the people of the dominion. I fall the non-political legislation  of the dominion is to originate in the sen-  site might it not be well to weed out of  that body all who have no ability to perform such service. The fact that a 'man  has money to subscribe to the campaign  funds of any political party does not  necessarily imply that he has the ina Icings  of a law maker in him. Before entrusting any important work to the senate the  people of Canada .should weed out those  who are not able to discharge the duties  which they would place upon them.  Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit oh  Dawson City, Yukon District.  MYSTERY   OP   A   GRAVE.  Druflf; Case Htia all the Features of  a  Sensational Novel.  The Druce case is still a mystery, anil it  is likely to remain one for a very considerable time, as a multitude of legal objections must lirst he overcome to the opening of the coffin iu which it is claimed the  late Dr. Druce, of the Baker Street Bazaar,  is not buried.    Meanwhile, the lady  who  in   the pages  of  Lloyd's   Weekly   newspaper, stated some weeks since that she  knewthe late Mr. Druce and the duke of  Portland were one and the same person,  contributes tmother letter to that journal.  She gives a vivid account of Druce's sham  burial  and  his re-appearance two years  afterwards.    The'"Annie May," to whom  Druce  was  married, she claims  to have  been the illegitimate daughter ot the earl  of Berkley.    There is a  very sensational  conclusion  to  this  communication.    The  lady writes:    "One thing I wish to add,  which to my mind explains many of the  apparently eccentric habits, and  that is  that, in  my opinion, he was constantly  filled with remorse for his behavior to hi.s  brother,   lord   (ieorge   Bentinck.     They  were   both   in   love  with  the same  girl  (Annie Mas'), and it was about her that  the final quarrel between them took place.  My father was present at the scene, and  lias often described it to me. Lord George  showered   a   torrent of   abuse  upon  his  brother, and struck him again and again  without retaliation, until at last the fifth  duke- then,  of   course,   the   marquis of  Titehfield, turned and  struck back once.  Hours later lord George was found dead,  and though, of course, strictly speaking,  no blame could  attach to the marquis, I  am sure that the latter never really forgave himself,.and that his constant fear  of   discovery    prompted    many   of    his  strange   and    mysterious   actions."   The  inference to be drawn is that this lady is  to appear as a 'witness when the claim  to  the  Portland   estates   is   made   to   Mrs.  Druce and her friends.  THE   FEDERATION    OF   AUSTRALIA.  The voting upon the question of the  federation of the five Australia- colonies  was in a measure disappointing to those  who wished to see the Australian colonies  follow in the footsteps of tho provinces  comprising the dominion of Canada. The  question of federation was submitted to  the people of four of tho colonies last  mouth, and in the colonies of Victoria,  Tasmania, and South Australia a heavy  percentage of the vote was in favor of  federation. Jn the ease of New South  Wales, while the majority of the electors  declared themselves in favor of federation, the affirmative vote fell some !XX)0  votes short of the total which was set as  necessary to secure the success of the  scheme. There were cast in this colony  7.1.112 votes in favor of federation and  C.;,0.>l negative votes, but the minimum  affirmative vote fixed by parliament was  80,000, and the scheme of federation is  therefore checked for the present.  By the terms of the convention it was  agreed that should three of the colonies  declare for federation a union of the  colonies favoring the scheme should be  brought about, but it was one of the conditions that the colony of New South  Wales should be one of the three. Under  the present conditions the failure of New  South Wales to enter confederation kills  the immediate chances of the other  colonies for federation. In "Western Australia the voting does not take place until  early next year, but in view of the adverse vote in the chief colony the result  iu Western Australia cannot alter the immediate effect of the general voting.  Premier 'fluid, of New South Wales,  though not "opposed' to federation, objected to some of the provisions of the  bill andthe Sydney 'Morning Herald looks  for his defeat at the general election as a  result.  Sir George Turner, Premier of Victoria,  while pleased with the results in his own  colony said in an interview: "I deeply  regret that the requisite number of HO.000  affirmative votes was not secured in New  South Wales. "While, however, that is to  be deplored, because it means some delay  and possible uncertainty as to tho future,  it is satisfactory to know that, notwithstanding all the efforts made against the  adoption of the bill, there are more people  in the mother colony in favor of the  measure than are opposed to it. I believe  if New South Wales were polled again  next week I:ho necessary 80,000 votes  would be secured, it is not likely the  minority, in the mother colony will long  continue to oppose the wishes and aspirations of the people of Australia for the  union of the colonies."  Development of the  Molllo Gibson.  Rufus Pope in speaking of the develop  ment  work   that  has  Mollie Gibson   group  says   that (.here  has  property  been done on the  ou Kokanee creek  been shipped   from  tons  of: ore  averaging  which  $100   to  ie property  several  gave  smelter returns  the ton. The owners of the property are  at present running two tunnels under the  direction of Bruce White, the manager of  the Slocan Star mine:. Mr. White purchased one one of the original locator's interests and shows his faith in the property  by taking shares in the re-organized company instead of cash. On the engineer's  report there are about $2."0,00l> worth of  ore in sight.  The Yield for tlie Current Year will A_>  proximate 815,000,000.  Jo-'eph Undue has at last secured from  the Canadian government a crown grant  for the 100 acres of land upon which the  townsite of Dawson is located. His representative, armed with the paper, arrived in Dawson late in June. Small log  storerooms are renting for $000 and $700a  month', and corner lots on the principal  business streets have sold as high as $20,-  000 cash.  The largest robbery reported from the  Klondyke district this year, was by a Fin-  lander named Charles Hendricksou, who  was employed on the lay on Bunker  creek. Hendricksou took $0?.00 in gold  dust. The matter was reported to the  police ou May 2Hth and two weeks later  Hendricksou was arrested. He confessed  the crime and was sentenced to five years  at hard labor by judge' McGuire. Hendricksou was employed one claim below  that from which the dust was taken, lie  suddenly became very flush with (he yellow stuff and suspicion was directed towards him. lie at first denied the theft,  but when confronted with evidences of  his crime broke down completely and  confessed. Pare of the stolen gold was  returned.  1 Washing up is still in active progress at  the diggings and probably will not be entirely completed before the latter part of  July. Water is a scarce article both on  Bonanza and Fldorado, and the claim  owners and "lay" men are hoping that  the longed for rain will soon make its appearance. The gold from the larger  claims is being rapidly brought to Dawson, and when all returns are in, a better  estimate of the total output can be made  than has been possible thus far. As a  general proposition tho men who worked  on lays during last winter failed to realize their expectations. Many did not  even make wages, and some few. it is  understood, did not so much as cover expenses, ft is scarcely probable that many  claims. will be worked on lays next  season.  June 13th a nugget valued at $180 whs  picked up at No. -I ISldorado. The Happy  claim, No. 10 Hldorado, is one of the best.  c  e \j{  Received Daily from Spokane at the  TIIK CIII.AI'KST HLACIC IK TIIK ('.TV  Koit FIU'ITS OF ALL KINDS.  MILLS & LOTT9 Cop. Baker and Ward Sts., Nelson.  About 2~> men were employed in working  it, and ten lays were let in addition. It  is estimated that the clean-up will reach  from a third to half a million dollars.  One man on Sulphur creek cleaned up  $1,S00 after two days' shoveling into his  sluice box. II. D. Rhodes' claim, No. 21  above, on Bonanza, yielded 245 ounces, at  a single clean-up. Many claims on Eldorado and Bonanza will show $100,000 or  more for the winter's work. Bench claims  and side hill claims are producing singularly well. Some of the former, on French  Gulch, run as high as $1,000 a day to two  men.  All accounts agree that the wealth of  Bonanza creek has been overestimated.  A reliable correspondent says that all  claims are poor until 00 below is reached.  Many dumps on Bonanza are not being  washed, as the owners are afraid they  will lose money by so doing. From a mining point of view only 10 per cent, of  Bonanza claims will pay to work.  Kldorado creek i.s richer than oven the  newspapers stated it to be. It joins Bonanza creek at 7 above Discovery, and is  without doubt a marvel. Three thousand  dollars a day have been washed up out of  No. IS, and the owners estimate they will  take out $700,000 during their wash up.  The claims vary a little, but ttike them ou  an average, 25 per cent, of Eldorado  claims will make rich men of their owners, while another 25 per cent, will have a  very fair sack. On both Bonanza and  Eldorado creeks the wash up has been  greatly hindered owing to the want of  water.    Something Interesting Promised.  The cannery steamer Delta .which  brought a number of voters on election  day from fraser river to Mayne island is  in trouble. The Delta has no license to  carry passengers. Collector Milne will  prosecute the owners and there is likely  to be some interesting disclosures as to  methods of tlie government in election  work, and the large vote polled at Mayne  island which resulted in the return of  speaker Booth over Patterson the opposition candidate.

Those who  con.omnia:'* placing their girls al. school  should communicate with the principals  of this Vancouver institution.  tt i.s likely that some of those who opposed tho passage of tins eiecl.rir. light, bylaw will make an effort to cpinsh the  by-law iu the courts. In the event of  their succeeding Che by-law would probably be subtnittted to the rate payers  - again. The time for commencing action  to quash the by-law expired today but  those who are contemplating the work  of having the by-law quashed took the  necessary steps yesterday. Whether anything further will be done remains to be  seen.  Much comment was caused about town  this week by the circulation of a petition  in which llobert Ince was recommended  as a. desirable incumbent for the warden-  ship of the Nelson jail, in the event of a  vacancy. The office sought by |J nee is at  present filled by captain I^it/.stubbs. The  captain is in fairly good health, and as he  will doubtless fill the office for some years  to come, there i.s not much prospect of a  vacancy���that is iu the wardenship.  The drilling contest at the Miners'  Union picnic at Rossland on Saturday last  resulted in the winners drilling a hoIe-IOi-  inches. The second teamgotdown SC) h'J-lb"  inches. One of the winning team, Burns,  drilled with the winning team at Xelson  on July 2nd, as did one of thesecond team,  floss. Jt will be remembered chat Mr.  lioss and a few of hi.s friends were very  loud in their denunciation of the committee who had charge of the drilling contest  at Nelson. The committee were charged  with every degree of crookedness. The  result of the Kossland contest is good  evidence that the drilling contest committee at Nelson were fair and impartial, as  have been all committees who have had  charge of sporting events ac Nelson. .Ross  ���was outclassed in Nelson. IJe was outclassed in Rossland by the same man.  During the visit of lady Aberdeen on  Thursday a local branch of the National  Council of women was formed in this city.  The following ladies were elected as  officers of the local branch: Mrs. J.  Roderick Robertson, president: Mrs. 'li.  W. Day, corresponding secretary; Mrs. J.

Lord Rosebery has, perhaps, for his  length of years in public life, attended  more funerals than any other public man.  lie, like Lord Salisbury, was present at  both Lord Beaconslield's and Mr. Gladstone's. The two artists who represented  tho royal academy at the funeral of Lord  Reaconsfield were, by the way, Lord  Leighton and Sir John Millais; and at the  burial of both painters, under the dome  of St. Paul's, Lord Rosebery assisted.  When Cardinal Newman died, Mr. Gladstone did not think he would "be in  place" at the grave of his old friend but  old opponent. The day before the funeral  a visitor called at the Birmingham oratory and asked permission to go into, the  church where the coffin was. That applicant had come from London specially  for the purpose, and it was Lord Rosebery.  a woman for sympathy  strangers for charity,  but for  see  -^  -M  and Shoes  Go to  ��  Baker Strec  Are offering special bargains in  Fine Furniture, Carpets, Linoleums  &  isfaetii  we sell  Captain Troup spent a couple of days iu  Nelson this week. Jle says that the failure of the contractors to-build the all-  O'anadian railway into the Y'ukon litis  caused the merchants on the coast and of  the dominion to lose the bulk of the Vukon business. In his opinion the, federal  government i.s responsible for this state of  affairs. At no time did the railway contractors intend to proceed with the work  unless the provincial subsidy was supplemented by a giant from the dominion.  Jtis believed that work upon the Hudson's Bay. Company's new block at the  corner of Baker and Stanley streets will  be commenced in the course of the next  few weeks. The plans which have been  prepared call for tlie erection of a three-  storey building with a basement. It will  have a frontage on Bakerstreet of 00 feet.  The first storey will be built of granite  and the front- wall'of the two .upper storeys will be of pressed brick. It will easily  be the finest building in town when completed.  Winnipeg Free Press: "At the residence of tht; bride's parents, .lames street,  vest.crday afternoon. Mr. Geo. Nunn, aud  Mi��s May S. daughter of Mr. I). I >. .Ukiii,  Doubtless very few people are aware  that Dan Eminent, who wrote "Dixie," is  still living. His home is in Mount  Vernon, ()., where he was born. Jn Lis  prime'he was one of the mid-century dandies of New ,rork, but now he usually  carries a long staff and wears hi.s co.it  fastened in at the waist by a bit of rope.  Strangely enough, "Dixie," or' "Dixieland." referred not to the South nor to  any part of the South. It was the name  of an estate on Manhattan Island, the  property ot a man named Dixy, who was  one of the largest slave-holders of his day,  until the rapid growth of the anti-slavery  movement in the North compelled him to  sell his slaves South. It was from these  blacks and their descendants that the  words "Dixie-land" came, expressing  their love and longing for their former  home and master.  WARD STRKI.T  Uepaii'in_r of all kinds done.
