The Le Roi Mining company has decided  to locate the company's smelter at North-  port, in,, preference to anjr point in this  province.    Upon the principal that everyone has a right to conduct his own business in his own way, the Le Roi company  was justified  in   locating  their smelter  werever   they  pleased.     The   dominion  government has also a right to demand  every   possible advantage incidental   to  the mining of the ores of   this province.  If the Le Roi company, in order to secure  certain other advantages, confers these  advantages upon the   United States   in  preference to Canada, the company may  expect to  pay an export duty upon its  Canadian ores so   soon   as   it   suits the  dominion  government to impose  it.   It  may be that the federal  government ,vill  not impose any such duty until .the completion of the Crow's Nest Pass Railway  places   Canadian smelters upon   a more  advantageous footing, but sooner or later  the export duty   will go upon ores.   In  the meantime it is not to be expected the  mining industry will come to a standstill  in order that smelting conditions may improve..    The   Le  Roi   company  will no  doubt save some money by treating their  ore   at   Northport,   aud   perhaps    make  enough out of the sale of townsite lands  to pay for their smelting plant.  The most instructive feature of the Le  Roi company's contention in favor of  Northport as a site, is that the provincial  government has enabled F. Aug. Heinze  to .so hog everything in the way of water  privileges, that there is not sufficient  unalienated water left between the  boundary line and Rosslaud to run a  smelter. For the past two years premier  Turner and his colleagues have sat up  night's trying to devise schemes to help  F. Aug. Heinze save the mining interests  .of B ritish: Col um bia. _, Everyithing Heinze  asked for he receivedr. The grief of these  little men will be great, when they learn  that all the while they have been feeding  a monopoly, the interests of which are  prejudicial to those of the province.  ANOTHER SHIPMENT OF COPPER BULLION  Looks Like Bad Management.  J. B. Callahan has made an examination  of the Two Friends mine, and will make a  report upon the same to the origiualown-  ers this evening at Slocan City. It is  generally understood that the Two  Friends Mining company of Vancouver,  which.operated the mine under a bond  for several months, will be roundly scored  for the manner in which it attempted to  open up the property. Callahan visited  the point where Peter Schoenberg recently found the rich rock, and satisfied,himself that it was a ledge that had never  been touched by the men who managed  the property for the Two Friends company. It is about four feet wide, can be  traced for. 1200 feet, and the croppings  show from eight to ten inches of ore similar to that in the ore house; eight tons of  which are sacked. This ore is full of lead  carbonates and galena. The old tunnel,  he says, was running in a direction quartering that of the newly discovered lead,  and would have reached it in the course  of time if continued.  The Russell Creek Finds.  Russell creek, a tributary of Goat river,  which empties into Goat river near its  confluence with Meadow creek, is receiving much attention from prospectors this  summer. The first location was made  upon the creek by Jack Eldridge, or  "Rocky Mountain Jack," on June 28th.  The ledge was several feet wide, and although no assays had been had, the ore  was of such promising appearance that  several prospectors went in upon the  creek at once. Eldridge and his partner  have three locations upon the creek, and  upwards of one dozen others have been  recorded. Sullivan creek is.also receiving  some attention. Russell creek is about 20  miles distant from Rykert's, over the  government trail.  The Ladies Hospital Aid.

Justice McColl has handed down judgment in the two actions to enforce adverse claims which were tried before him  in Nelson. They both effect Rossland  mining claims. In Merry weather vs.  Aspinwall, the plaintiff, as the owner of  the Rubenstein claim, sought to enforce  an adverse against the Lofty claim.  Judgment was entered for the plaintiff.  John Elliot appeared for the plaintiff and  C. R. Hamilton for the defendant. In  the case of the B. C. Syndicate vs. Der-  mitzer, an action to enforce an adverse  ou behalf of the Golden Butterfly against  the Golden Drip, judgment was given for  the plain till'. C. It. Hamilton for plaintiff, and Elliot and It. Macdonald for defendants.  Ore That Nets About $250 Per Ton.  The last car of ore shipped from the  Reco mine, contained 39.170 pounds and  gave a net return over all charges, except mining, of $'1,000.53. The ore carried  417.75 ounces silver and 16.0 per cent lead.  The Reco will ship winter and summer  when the concentrator and tramway are  completed.   To Help American Railways to Compete.  The interstate commerce commission on  Wednesday, suspended until December  31, the long aud short haul clause of the  interstate act so far as business to the  Kootenay district is concerned, so as to j  enable all railroads to compete with the  Canadian Pacific.  , Judge Forin Settles a Number of Disputes Be-  tween Employees and Employers. ���,  - Judge, Forin finished up the county  court business on Friday. The case of  Horace W. Buck vs. McNaught, an action  for specific performance of an option,  lasted the greater part of two days. The  plaintiff had an option upon some Kaslo  property for $800, aud when the option  came due the defendant had not the title  ready. The plaintiff therefore did not  tender the purchase money, but when he  tendered the money later on, the defendant refused to carry out the contract on  the ground that the time covered by the  option had lapsed. Judgment was reserved.  The case of .Tiszkowicz vs. Moslanka,, an  action to recover $11 for room rent, was  settled out of court.  Charles R. Macdonald had an action  against Steve White for $55 for services.  He got judgment for $44 aud costs. P. E;  Wilson appeared for Macdonald.  Alex Campbell had a suit against Frank  Hannah of Trail. He got judgment for  $51.75. W. Galliher appeared for Campbell.  The suit of John Lynch against J. A.  Say ward, a claim under an agreement for  fixing up the Pilot Bay sawmill, was  settled out of court.  E. Cummings secured judgment against  Isaac Holden for $80 for wine supplied.  The plaintiff's claim was for $90.  J. li. Bowes, on behalf of the Nelson  sawmill made a motion, iu the case of K.  A. Forbes aud others, against the sawmill company for wages, to set aside the  service of summons. The motion was  dismissed and the action went over for  trial upon a day to be fixed. The claims  for wages in this action will amount; it i.s  said, to $2,000. P. E. Wilson appeared on ���  behalf of the workmen.  Thomas Creaser had an action against  Steve White for $50 for wages. He. got  judgment for $20.  WORK   COMMENCED   THIS .; WEEK.  To Import an Army of Immigrants.-  In connection with, the construction of  the Crow's Nest Pass Railway, on suggestion from Immigration Commissioner  McCreary, an arrangement has been  arrived at between the department of  the interior and C. ' P. R. ' authorities,  whereby, in addition to the men employed by the local contractors, work will  be provided for' a further .2;000 men, who  will be f urnis'hed;by the immigration department. This arrangement has been  made to assist young men, farm laborers,  who desire to settle in Manitoba and the  Northwest, but without sufficient means  to immediately start farm operations.  Agents of the Dominion government in  Scotland, Wales and Sweden will forward a considerable number of the needed  contingent, while agents in the United  States will also forward a number of  young Canadians desiring, to return to  their native country. While Haney was  in Winnipeg Mayor McCreary discussed  the matter with the superintendent and  arranged as to rates of wages, cost of  board, transportation, etc. It is understood that all men furnished by the,department will become bona fide settlers  in the Northwest.  The 'Winnipeg Crew Defeated at Henley.  Henley-on-Thames, July 15.��� The Winnipeg four-oared crew was defeated by  the New College four in the fourth heat  for the Steward's Challenge cup.. It was  a magnificent race, the two shells being  close throughout. The excitement was  intense, aud the contestants were vigorously applauded by the spectators along  the shore and afloat. The time was 7  minutes and 33 seconds. The Winnipegs  were an eighth of a length ahead at the  end of Temple, Island, rowing 40 strokes to  the minute, as against 39 for New. They  drew out and got a lead of a length. The  half mile stake was reached in three minutes and 34 seconds. Beyond Fawley  Court boat house New College in a-few  powerful strokes, drove their boat even  with the Winnipegs. At the three-  quarter stake, which was reached in four  minutes and 12 seconds, the Winnipegs  were half a length behind, from that point,  although they spurted grandly and decreased the lead of New College by three  or four feet, they never could catch the  Oxonians, who finished winners by a  length in seven minutes and 33 seconds.  The steering of the Winnipegs was decidedly better than yesterday's, and they  were less exhausted than their rivals. At  the finish the Winnipegs proposed three  cheers for New College. The men in the  New boat heartily responded, and the  cheer was caught up on the shore, after  which the Winnipegs were loudly cheered  in return. .  Will Abate the Army Muisance.  Chief of police AVolverton has uotified  the Salvation Army people that hereafter  they will not be allowed to continue the  nuisance of holding their services on the  public streets. The police do not object  to the army holding open air services on  the vacant lots on Baker street east of  Josephine street,' but they will prevent  the army from, blocking the streets as  heretofore. If the army people have any  sense they will comply with the instructions of the police.  Slocan Milling Notes.  The first shipment, consisting of 30 tons  of high grade ore, is now being made by  the Wakefield mine, near Silverton, which  is owned by the Bremner Scotch syndicate. I  The Crow's Nest Railway is Now Under Construction and Will Be Finished in 1898.  M. J. Haney, who has charge of the construction of the Crow's Nest road for the  Canadian Pacific Railway company, arrived in MeLeod this week. The tenders  for the grading of the first 50 miles of the  road from Lethbridge were to be in by  Tuesday, and the tenders for the second  50 miles by Thursday. ��� The contracts call  for the immediate commencement of construction.  In speaking of the company's plans  Haney said: "We will push matters all  we can so as to have the first 100 miles  completed by about the end of October.  This will take us over the summit of the  first mountains, and as mountain work  can be proceeded with during the winter,  there will be no let up until the whole  road is completed. It will be completed  as soon as practicable, which I think  means iu the fall of 189S. There are eight  engineering parties at work now, and  while the construction of the first 100 miles  is under way, the whole route will be  surveyed. I have not yet seen the surveys for that part of the route that the  engineers have beeu over, so as yet can  give no estimate of the amount of briclg:  ing or masonry required. In the mountains there are alternate routes, and we  will not decide upon which is to be followed until all have been surveyed.  year in the ranks. The promoters of the  measure express the opinion .that the  reason the men do not marry is because  military service comes just at the time  when youths naturaliy contemplate  marriage, but they hope by the  offer of deducting two years from  their military, service to entice large  numbers into matrimony. In order  to obviate, the probability of conscripts  marrying in order to escape being drafted  into the army, and then divorcing their  wives at the end of a years' service, the  bill provides that, conscripts so acting will  have to return to the army and complete  their three years' service.-  WATKR   AND   SEWERAGE   SYSTEMS.  '<?'  CUT   OFF   TWO   SALOONS.  RHODES   IS   SCORED  By  the Parliamentary Committee of Enquiry  Into the Transvaal Raid.   ���  London, July 13.���The   parliamentary  South African commission that has been  inquiring  into   the   Transvaal raid  has  agreed  upon  its   report.    The Pall Mall  Gazette publishes a summary of the conclusions of the commission.   The report  will  express   an   emphatic opinion  that  whatever justification there might have  been for action on the part of the people  of Johannesburg, there was none whatever for Cecil Rhodes' conduct in subsidizing,   organizing  and   stimulating   an  armed insurrection   against the government of the Transvaal.   A heavy responsibility, according to the  report, remains  with Rhodes, despite the fact that at the  last moment Dr.   Jameson   invaded the  Transvaal without Rhodes' direct sanction.   The gravity of Rhodes'sanction is  weightily expressed by the commission,  who find "that he seriously embarrassed  both  the imperial and  colonial govern-  njeiits,:that his proceedings resulted in an  astounding     breach     of   . international  comity; that he utilized his position and  the great interests he controlled in order  to assist and support revolution, and deceived the high commissioner, as well as  concealed his views from the members of  the colonial ministry and the directors of:  the Chartered company."  The commission is of the opinion that  of the directors of the Chartered company who were examined, only Mr. Beit  and Mr. Maguire were cognizant of the  plans of Rhodes. As Mr. Beit was intrusted1 with the money to promote a  revolutionary movement, he must share  the full responsibility for the consequence.  The report adds that Newton also failed  in his duty, but in a less degree.  The commission, in conclusion, are a  unit to condemn the . raid; but at the  same time they express the opinion that  nothing will be gained by proceeding  with the proposed extension of the inquiry into the administration of the  Chartered company. They declare Lord  Rosemead and Mr. Chamberlain, and the  under secretaries' of the colonial office  blameless, on the ground that there is no  evidence that any of them was in any  sense cognizant of the plans for the raid.  But they pronounce Sir Graham Bower,  imperial secretary of the high commissioner, guilty of a grave dereliction of  duty in that he failed to decline to receive  from Cecil Rhodes confidential communications wholly incompatible with the  duty he owed the high commissioner.  A voluminous minority report presented by Mr. Henry Labouchere finds that  the plan for the raid was concocted by  Beit and Rhodes, and sought to be carried  out by Phillips, Hammond, colonel Ithodes  (Cecil Rhodes' brother), and Leonard. It  was devised, according to Mr. Labouchere,  in order that certain wealthy men might  become more wealthy.  "Rhodes," continues the report, "may  possibly be influenced to a certain extent  by a vague and hazy idea of a vast African  federation under the British flag, in which  he would play the leading part: but he  was also influenced and is influenced, by  financial considerations."  Mr. Labouchere docs not consider that  certain high personages in the board of  directors in the Chartered company did  their duty, while he thinks that Rhodes  and; Beit merit "severe punishment" for  the raid, "which is one of the most disgraceful episodes of our country's history."  The minority report concludes as follows: "We regret that the alleged complicity of the colonial office has not been  probed to the bottom, in order the more  effectually to remove any ideas that there  may have been some truth in the statements of certain witnesses that the secret  aims of Cecil Ithodes were more or less  clearly revealed to Joseph Chamberlain."

The board consisted of   mayor   Houston   and commissioners Crease and Croasdaile.' The commissioners  granted  ten  applications for  hotel licenses and "one application for a  saloon license.    The applications of Isaac  Holden   and   Messrs Clements & Martin  for licenses for saloons on Baker  street,  were   refused.   Against the granting of  these licenses a protest was entered by  Messrs. P.  Burns & Co., George A. Bige-  low, J. A. Gilker, Fred Irwine. Matheson  & Graham, and W. F. Teetzel.   An application for a   license  for  the   Kootenay  House on Vernon street by Peterson &  Mallette, was laid over till the next meeting of   the commissioners,  which   takes  place   on   Thursday,   July    22nd.

The case of Bunker vs Ward, which has  been before the courts for the past year,  was settled on Wednesday. Alfred Bunkerwas suing T. M.

Goepel,   is calling  for  tenders for the erection of a provincial  jail upon block 10, just where the people  of Nelson didn't, want it. It will be a  $.10,000 building , with stone basement  and frame superstructure. The main  building will have a frontage of 70 feet  by -10 feet deep, behind which will be  built a wing 37 feet by 87 feet. In the  main building, which will be threestories,  will be the living quarters of the warden,  a female and lunatic ward.-and the condemned prisoner's cell. ' f.n the; wing,  which will be two stories, there will be at  least 20 cells. The block has been cleared  of underbrush, ready for the commencement of work, and if tlie chief commissioners of lands and works listens to his  acting assistant instead of the people of  Nelson, this city will shortly have a provincial jail in the middle of the residences  ���just where it is not wanted.

A short session of the city council was  held in the fire hall Wednesday evening,  all members being present, except Alderman Dow and Teetzel:  Alderman   Fletcher   presented   the report of .the  public  works committee on  the water  works  and  sewerage systems  for the city.   It set out  that after exum-  ing the plans already received, aud goings  over the   ground,    the    committee   was  unanimously in favor of placing the reservoir on blocks 23 and 33 in  lot 182, group  one.   As there is a natural  site at this  point, it  will- greatly  reduce the cost of  construction, provided that  upon proper  tests being   made the   ground  i.s  found  suitable for a foundation.     This site is  situated one block to the south, and about-  40 feet higher than sites shown on  plans.  The   committee recommended   that   the ,  site be tested and surveys madefortheloca-  tion of a 1,000,000 gallon reservoir at this  point.   On examining the plans the committee found  that Mr. McCulloch's plan  very nearly covered the ground, and provides for the supplying of the area within  the present means of the city.    The committee thought that this system could be  followed,   adopting McCulloch's   bizes of  pipes with  the addition of two pressure  valves, one eight and  one six-inch, and  one relief valve, together  with the reset-- <  voir refered to, at a cost not exceeding  $20,000,  and   providing   a   most efficient  service���at  an estimate cost of $20,000.  The committee reported that the question  of sewerage depended ou the amount at  the   disposal   of the   council.    After examining the several plans aud taking into  consideration  the   amount of money at  the city's disposal, the committee recommended the laying of a 24-inch brick sewer  aloug  Ward  creek  from Silicia street to  the water front, aud the  laying of 2350  feet of 8-inch pipe connecting therewith,  at an estimated cost of $12,000.    The cost  of both   water  and   sewerage    systems  suggested, the committee thought would  more than cover the work, aud in laying  both systems, the expenditures could be  curtailed to suit the amount at the disposal of the council.  The report was adopted on motion of  Alderman Gilker, seconded by Alderman  Hillyer.  A ballot for the position of resident  engineer on the construction of, water  works and sewerage systems, resulted in  A. L. AlcCulloch receiving three votes, lil.  W. Cummings one, and D. Morris one.  On motion of Alderman Fletcher, seconded  by Alderman Gilker, A. L. McCulloch was  appointed at a monthly salary of $200.

The Ames Holden Go's special "Columbia,"  "Vancouver," "Kootenay" should be worn  by everybody who wants a first-class mountain boot.  SATURDAY MORNING JULY 17. 1897  The   council  ol' the Kootenay Miners'  Protective Association, has  placed itself  on record as being opposed to the imposition of an export duty upon ores.    As the  association is largely made up  of United  States citizens and quasi resident Britishers, who have no Canadian interests outside of their milling companies dividends,  it is not a matter for a surprise that they  ���   should   declare against an  export duty  upon ore.    The interests of the dominion  require   that  whenever   practicable  the  ores of Canada be treated in Canada, and  it is  not at all likely that the federal  government will subordinate the interests  of the dominion as  a whole to  the greed  ofa number  of aliens   and   non-resident  ,  Britishers.    Canada has a greater destiny  than serving as a grazing ground for prospective alien millionaires.    The following  resolution   adopted     on   Saturday,    expresses their views upon the export duty:  "That  this  association views  with  consternation the fact  that the executive  "at Ottawa are in possession of the power  "to place, at any time, an export duty on  "ores, aud this association desires to place  "itself oh record as being of opinion that  "should such vested powers be exercised  "the elfect. will  be disastrous  to the infant 'quartz mining industry' of British  "Columbia, and practically ruin it withan  "amount of taxation  it is at the present  "time unable to carry and prosper."  An apologist for the provincial government, whom the Vancouver World declares  to be Clive Phillips-Wolley, has a letter  in the London Times upon the subject of  the Cassiar railway .job. This apologist  does not attempt to minimize the value  of the enormous concessions granted to  the promoters of the Cassiar railway, but  he contends that despite these concessions  the province as a whole will be the gainer.  , AVithout the aid of foreign capital, he  holds that a vast portion of the province  would remain unworked, although every  traveler who has wandered through it  has brought back reports of its apparent  mineral wealth which would lead one to  believe that it is in no way inferior to the  Yukon district in the north or Cariboo in  the south. The writer evidently overlooks the circumstances that when the  wealth of Cassiar is demonstrated by this  gigantic development company, its  development will proceed upon' entirely  different lines from those which obtained  in West Kootenay. The conditions of  the Cassiar land grant are such as will  hamper the development of all mining interests save those of the monopolistic  'company. Cassair is now placed in the  position    which   Kootenay   would    have  , occupied had the Robson administration  pursued its railway policy which gave to  proposed railways ten per cent of the ore  taken from all mines tributary to them.  'West Kootenay then stood, in respect  to mineral development, in much the  same position that Cassiar stands today.  The government did not know the value  of the aid which it proposed to give railway promoters for a railway into Kootenay, but the development of West Kootenay has demonstrated just what the aid  would have amounted to. The government should . have learned the folly of  such  reckless legislation   but it did not.  The incubus which it was prevented from  inflicting upon West Kootenay, it has  succeeded in inflicting upon Cassiar.  The Victoria Colonist laments the failure of F. Aug. Heinze to secure a Dominion subsidy of $2,000,000 for his Penticton  road, in that the government's refusal  killed the chance for a great scheme for 1  out-door relief. In a recent issue this  self-constituted mouthpiece for the province says: "Hundreds of men will get  '��� employment on the Crow's Nest Pass  " railway, but unhappily that is a long  " way from Victoria. If the plans for  " which the Colonist has labored, and  " which it hopes may yet succeed, pros-  ���' per, there will be work for hundreds of  " men nearer the city, that is iu the val-  " ley of the Okanagan on the much-needed  '���' railway to Boundary creek."  While Hon. 0. B. Martin is in this section his attention should be called to the  lack of accommodation in the court house  in this city. At every assize some fifty  or sixty men are summoned for jury duty,  and are required to remain in attendance  upon the court for a week or ten days.  For these men the court does not even  provide a chair to sit upon. When not  ser.ving upon a-jury they are forced to sit  upon the stairs leading up to-the court  room, or upon the fence outside of the  court house. If this matter was called to  the attention of the chief commissioner  of lands and works, he might undertake  to build an addition to the court,house,  or make some changes in the present system, by-which public officials are allowed  to have living apartments in a building  already too small for the transaction of  public business.,  It is announced from Ottawa that the  federal government will put the alien  labor law into effect in connection with  the employment of men upon the construction of the Crow's Nest railway.  Such a course is no doubt the proper one.  Since the road is being built with the  money of the Canadian taxpayers, there  is no good reason why the Canadian  laborer should not have every advantage  incidentalto its construction. ,No\v that  the federal government has evinced sufficient interest in the Canadian laborer to  see that he has the first chance for employment upon the Crow's Nest road, it is  to be hoped that the government's interest will carry it still further, and that it  will see that the Canadian laborer is secured in the payment for his labor. The  restricting of contracts to Canadians is  not a sufficient safeguard for Canadian  laborers and sub-contractors. In this  province more trouble has been experienced from Canadian contractors than  from any aliens. If the government is in  earnest in this matter, it will see that  Canadians not only get work, but that  they are secured in their payment for the  same. There is a chance here for something more than a "grand stand" play.  Tun announcement that the federal immigration department has made arrangements with the Canadian .Pacific Hail way  company for the importing of some 2000  railway navvies from Sweden and Great  Britain, follows fast upon the announcement of the government's intention to  put the alien labor law in force for the  protection of Canadian laborers upon the  proposed railway. Such contradictory  evidence of the government's interest in  the welfare of Canadian labor must be  rather alarming to the Canadian laborers  themselves. Just how they are to benefitted by the importation of 2000 .competitors from Sweden and Great Britain is a  problem which most Canadian laborers  will have difficulty in demonstrating. In  the opinion of most people there are  plenty of men in Canada for all the employment that is offering, or that will be  offering when construction upon the  Crow's Nest road is commenced. If the  government is going into the business of  paying railway fare for laborers to reach  places of employment, it should commence  by paying the fares of those already in  the "��� eastern Canadian cities. If any  laborers are deserving of assistance, those  already resident in the Dominion are, and  under no circumstance does Canada want  any more assisted immigrants. It is idle  for the government to contend that the  men thus imported to work upon the railway grade will take up land and become  farmers when the railway work is done.  The experience of the past has taught  tlutt they will gravitate to the towns and  cities and compete with Canadian laborers  in what are at present overcrowded labor  centers. _i_   Tin-: Economist, a new weekly paper,  made its appearance in Nelson on Wednesday. It is a readable sheet, edited  by 1). M. Garley, and from its tone  its chief endeavor will be to make  the provincial government and premier  Turners' cabinet ministers popular.  When its editor becomes acquainted  with the shortcomings of those whom  he has undertaken to defend, he will  no doubt insist upon their raising the  the limit.  AINSWORTH   NOTES.  arid the present move of putting in a concentrator and tramway is most welcome  to the people of Ainswortli. A son of  Mr. Stevenson's, who has made a study of  mining, will have charge of the work.  The-Highlander is in shape,to furnish a  steady supply of ore to the concentrator.  The management of the Black Diamond  mine has arranged with the Canadian Pacific Mining & Milling company to handle  50 tons of the Black Diamond ore per day  in the Woodbury creek concentrator.  The mine will commence shipping to the  concentrator next week.  Nelson,& Fort Sheppard Elect Officers.

Aud what's odd, you would think it odd  that this cane of human skin should become a political issue in the great state of  Ohio, would you not?"  Thus began a Mesh-creeping and hair-  raising story told by major 13. C. KordJiam  of Cincinnatti. .Bryan's rabbit-foot cut  no small figure in the last national campaign, but a walking-stick covered with  human, epidermis was a strange subject  for political discussion, though it is generally believed that a politician is always  ready to "skin the other fellow alive."  "Well, in the beginning of the. Ohio  campaign of 188(5, United States senator  (then known as governor) Foraker made  his opening speech before a large assemblage at Columbus. Ohio," continued  major Fordham, as be nestled into an easy  chair at the Planters'. "The present campaign in Ohio involves a discussion of the  cruelties practiced by captain general  Weyler on the Cuban prisoners; but in  the campaigu of 1SSO Foraker didn't have  to go to Cuba to lind cruelties to talk  about���he unearthed a sensation in the  Columbus penitentiary, and proved to the  satisfaction of the excited Buckeyes that  the Democratic party was manufacturing  walking canes out of the skins of dead  Irish and negro prisoners.  "Now, this statement did not partake  of a fire-alarm nature, for Foraker had  the sworn affidavits to support his assertions. It appears that some Democratic  doctor was holding a, position as prison  physician. He and his assistant had  taken a half dozen bodies of prisoners to  the morgue, and had compelled a prisoner  to aid in skinning these bodies. Tlie live  prisoner was forced to make walking-  sticks or canes out of the human hide.  After removiug- the. skins, he was compelled to carry them in a basket to. a private work-room, where the skinsi were  cut into strips, in order- that they might  become seasoned quicker than if left in,  the entire piece. When the skins had become sufficiently seasoned, the prisoner  would cut theni into small, square pieces,  and perforate each piece in the centre for  a steel rod to pass through, after which,  by planing, and paring, neat walking-  sticks would' be produced, averaging in  size from one-fourth of an inch at the  bottom to five-eighths of an inch at the  ' top.  "Well, when ' Foraker.' uncovered this  sensation, he adroitly used it in a political  way. The Irishmen of Ohio had always  been Democratic, as a rule; in fact, a  Republican Irishman was as rare as a  walking-stick made of human skin. But  the Irishmen had been flocking to the Re-  ��� publican ranks, and their accession was  welcomed. . At the same time, there had  been some little dissatisfaction among the  colored Republicans. Foraker wanted to  kill two birds with one* walking-stick, as  it were, and he began thus: 'I invite the  attention of every Irishmau and every  negro to the.words I am about to read���  for, at last, if never before, the Irishmen  and negroes of Ohio have a common grievance and a common interest that ought to  make them stand shoulder to shoulder as  one man.'  "Then Foraker read the affidavit Of the  prisoner, sworn to before a notary public,  .setting forth the facts about his being  compelled to skin dead Irishmen and dead  negroes to get material for making.canes.  Foraker then stated, that he had secured  one of these canes, and hail caused an analysis to be made, which conclusively established the truth of the horrible barbarity.  "The , audience became excited, and  Foraker, who well knows how to play  upon human sentiment, assumed a most  serious cast of countenance, and said :  'On the same rod, therefore, we have the  combined and commingled skins of an  Irishman and a negro, put' there by the  directions and commands of two democratic officials, physicians of the penitentiary, to gratify a fiendish whim that  would have been a disgrace to the dark  ages. My Irish fellow-citizens, you will  no longer stay with a party at whose  hands the lifeless body of your unfortunate countryman received such inhuman  treatment? And where is the colored  man who will not resent such atrocious  brutality? Whenever you think of voting the democratic ticket, think of that  democratic ruffian having the skin  stripped from the dead body of a poor  prisoner that it might be dried and  dressed and cut into squares and slipped  onto a piece of steel rod and hammered  and trimmed into a cane for a miserable  wretch to strut about the streets with."  " Well the blood of every Irishman in  the audience boiled with indignation.  To manufacture walking-sticks with an  Irishman's skin was a worse crime than  the evictions by the  Fnglish lords in Ire  land. And the republican party in Ohio  gained thousands-of Irish votes that year  and the'negroes remained in line."  Imbecile British Peers.  T. P. O'Connor, M.'P., has an  article in  Harper's magazine for July, on the celebrities of the, House  of   Commons from  which the following extract is taken:  The late Lord Den man was a very curious example of the survival of the name  aud even  the resemblance  when   everything else has gone.   His  father was a,  great counsel, who was able to withstand  all the temptations of the court and of  society in the great trial  between George  IV. and his wife, Caroline of Brunswick;  and afterward he  was one  of the best  chief justices the country ever iiad.   Jn  his son there  was  a curious and almost  hideous resemblance to .him.   There were  the same  strong and finely chiseled Roman, nose,   the  same   long,  well-shaped  face, the same great height, and the same  fineness of figure; the voice  was also the  same sonorous and  melodious organ, and  there was even a resemblance in the very  clothes ; for the son adhered  rigidly to  the style of dress that used  to  be  the  mode in the days of hi.s  father's'youth ;  he wore a curious necktie of many folds,  a long coat  which  in  cut  and color was  like a survival, and  there  was about the  whole figure a curious old-world air. not  without its dignity, but infinitely melancholy.     For   this   outward   resemblance  was but the resemblance of the shell; the  old Lord Denman   was there in externals  and in the body, but the spirit was gone.  The Lord Denman  this generation knew  would be harshly described if he were  said to be insane, for he was not violent,  and   never offended any   more   than he  hurt anybody; but he  was certainly of  weak, or at least eccentric, intellect.    He  attended every sitting of the house  of  fords quite conscientiously, and no sitting  passed without his rising to speak.   Then  a very curious thing would happen.  You,  as a visitor, would  be surprised, perhaps  even a  little   shocked,   1o   observe that  every peer in the house began at once to  talk to his neighbor,  and   to talk in  as  loud a voice as he could, until the usually  somber and spectrally silent assembly became  positively  as 'noisy as the grasshoppers in a big field.   When you looked  at the venerable figure  with  the hooked  nose and heard  the  melodious voice, you  were positively shocked that an assembly  of noblemen should  show itself so wanting in  the commonest courtesies of life.  But really there was no choice in the matter.     Lord    Denman   always   talked   insanities or imbecilities, and there was no  method by which he could be kept down  except by the  rough-and-ready method J  have    described.     He    made     motions,  nobody took    notice of them ;   the lord.  chancellor did  not even  go through the  formality of  putting  them   to the   vote  and having them  rejected,    ft was as if  nobody had spoken ; as if this figure were  a ghost from the grave. .-  E.

The United States Geological survey  has issued a statement of the mineral products of the United States for 1S00, and  corresponding figures for each year since  1880... The total value of all minerals is  placed at $021,900,9-13 for 180(5, against  $022,087,008 for 1S95. -The non-metallic  minerals for .1.895 were valued at $339,77-1,-  029, and for 1890 at ��� $334,187,371.' Metallic  minerals for IS95, $2S1,913,039; for .1890,  $2S0,7S.l ,570. The greatest increase in value  of the metals was in copper, which, for  1S95 was valued at $38,082,347, and in 1890  at $'18,094,207. Next came gold with an  increase from $40,010,000 to $53,088,000.-.  Silver increased from $72,051,000to 70,009,-  230; zinc from $0,278,020 to $0,519,920;  aluminum from $"104,000 to $520,000: antimony from $08,000 to'-$84,200; and nickel  from $3,091 to $4,404.

While there was, generally, an iucrease  in quantity in most of the non-metallic  minerals, the decrease in the price made  the value somewhat less.  Clemens Made a Stake in Four Moriths. ,  Charles Clemens of Los Angeles, a cousin  of Mark Twain, is one of the fortunate  ones who have made a fortune in a few  months out of the rich gold diggings of  the Klondyke. Clemen's went into the  Yukon less than a year ago, in company  with another equally . raw ; tenderfoot,  Frank Summers, and it was not until  November last that they reached the  Klondyke aud located ground. Four  months later, having already taken out  $15,000, Clemens sold liis interest for  $35,000 cash, while his partner, Summers,  held on for two weeks longer and got  $50,000. The, money to pay the men was  taken out of the dump which had been  lifted from the shaft on the claim during  the winter. These two men had each  panned out $2500 on their claim while  simply prospecting it, and the man who  bought Clemens' interest bound the bargain with a $232 nugget, the largest nugget  yet found on the Klondyke.

Just what affinity  exists between McIvor-TyiKh.ll and the  millionaires, is left a matter for conjecture, as is also the distance which intervenes between he and them.  The funeral of tlie late J.  of New Westminster, who  Kootenay Lake hospital Tuesday morning from heart failure, took place from  the Masonic hall Thursday afternoon.  The deceased was a barrister and was  formerly police magistrate for the city of  New' Westminster.  C. E. T. Pelhain has opened a hotel and  store at Crawford Bay, on the trail going  into the St. Mary's district. Re will be in  a position to supply pack horses and will  undertake the packing of goods.  The Hall.Exploration company has ten  ,men at work on the Black Cock pro Derby  on Wild Horse creek.   They are  driving  ��� a tunnel and sinking a shaft, aud have a  good ore body in each working.  C li. Sealej', city assessor,' has commenced the work of assessing the real  property aud improvements within the  city limits. He is required to complete  the work by September ,13th, after which  the rate ot' taxation will be fixed for the  current year. As nothing iu the nature  of a careful assessment of the entire property included within the city limits has  been attempted before, the result of the  assessor's labors will be interesting.  The full courb gave judgment at Victoria  ou Monday in the Aldous vs Hall Mines  suit, ordered a new trial. The action was  one of tresspass brought by. the plaintiff  to enforce an adverse mineral claim under  the mineral act of 1S9L At the trial in  the county court it was held that as the  olaintiff had not shown that site had complied with the requirements of the mineral act the matter of defining her main  line by posts or the blazing of trees, she  could not recover. �����  A party of five anen who had taken a  ��� sub-contract from 'McLean Brothers &  MacBeath on the Slocan river road, had  the misfortune to lose their whole outfit  while floating down Slocan river on a  raft. When they told their story to-Dave  MacBeath, he promptly counted himself  in for one-half of their loss.  Frank Fletcher expects to .commence  work upon the superstructure of his new  residence this week. When finished it  .will be the handsomest residence iu the  city.  Jesse Bigelow and his partner, Radford,  arrived in town this week after a prospecting trip in the St. Mary's district in  East Kootenay.   They succeeded in mak-  ��� ing a couple of good locations just over  the St. Mary's pass and came in for supplies. They have a 4-foot ledge which assays well, giving gold, silver, and lead  values, but have not done sufficient work  upon it as yet to make predictions as to  its extent. Bigelow. says that there are  six men working on the California group,  and as many on the Hidden Secret and  Fmpress groups in the same section.  The survey for the C. & K. extension to  the eastern limit of the city  takes the  railway through the center of T. W.  Gray's planing mill. This is rather closer  railway connection than "Tom" bargained  for, and has impressed upon him the necessity of seeking a new mill-site. It is  likely that the railway company will  swing around the end of the mill until he  can get out of the way.  Aldermen Fletcher .and'Hillyer selected  a site for the water works reservoir on  Wednesdajr morning. They have chosen  different ground from that selected by all  three engiueers, and one which would not  result in any serious damage to town property in the event of a break. The aim  of the council will be to push the construction of the water works system as  fast as possible.  D. A. MacBeath has resumed his duties  in the postoffice. He returned from the  Sound Tuesday very much improved in  health, thanks to a steady clam diet.  Work upon the city lockup and municipal office building is progressing favorably. It will be the first stone building  erected in this city, and will when completed, be a cheap as well as a serviceable  structure. .  Robert   l_wart of the Nelson-Poormau  Alining   company,' reports  that   further  prospecting ot the White ledge upon the  White claim in the Poorman group, has  resulted in a very fine showing of free-  milling ore.   The  ledge was  cut  in   two  places about 200 feet below the old White  workings; and found to be well in  place.  It is about four feet wide and the quart/,  is very rich .looking.    The present showing has a vertical depth of 75 feet below  the old workings, and from this point to  the -place where the ledge was uncovered  at the White's end line, there are 1000feet  of ledge upon the White ground.   Kwart  is of the opinion that the recent discoveries upon the White give an equal, if not  greater,  value, than  the  Poorman  claim  itself.    The company's entire force is now  employed in development work upon the  We have just received another lot of Ladies' Fine Shirt  Waists, made of Organdy and Dimity Detachable White  Collars and Cuffs; also Collars and Cuffs to match Waists.  An early inspection of these goods are asked, as they are  rapidly.     Mail  orders will receive prompt attention.  se  ing  During the month of June 400 tons of  concentrates were shipped over the Canadian Pacific to Kansas City via Portland.  The concentrator is connected with the  mine by an Otto tramway, which is giving  great satisfaction.  The Nelson Iron Work continues to run  steadily upon custom repairing. The  company is employed upon work for the  Nelson Electric Light company, Reisterer's  brewery, aud upon iron work for the Mc-  Killop and other brick buildings'in course  of erection. The company is hampered at  present owing to difficulty in securing  stock. When the stock upon the way arrives and the company is in a position to  solicit work, the staff will be increased  from 15 to 20 men.  The Nelson boat club will holdaregetta  on Saturday, August 7th. The programme  will be commenced at 1:30 p. m. It will  include J-oared races, single scull with in-  rigged and outrigged boats, double sculls  with lady coxswains, single, double, and  4-paddle canoe races, sailing canoe race,  and swimming race of ;*50 yards. In the  evening there will be a procession of illuminated boats.  It is reported from Kaslo that judgment  ,in favor of the Bank of Montreal has been  filed in the recorders office at Kaslo  against the Pilot Bay Smelter company  for $75,000. This is taken to mean that  the bank intends to foreclose, which  would pave the way to the lease or disposal of the plant at Pilot Bay.  Charlie Townsend and P. Perkins are  on the lookout for someone who will put  $1000 into a prospect for development  purposes, and take an interest in the property. Tlie claim which they wish to develop is the King Copper, an extension of  the Copper Clown. These properties were  discovered by accident some weeks ago  along the C. & K. railway line: The first  discovery was made by John Perkins and  Joe Duhamel.on the Copper Clown, their  point of discovery being about 50 feet  from the railway line., They have since  opened up a 3-foot ledge for a distance of  1300 feet, which carried them into the  King Copper ground. Several assays have  been made from the ledge, the returns  ranging from S to 27 per cent copper, with  traces of gold and a few ounces in silver.  Townsend and Perkins have this ledge  right through their claim, and they are  anxious to get to work upon it, preferring  to retain control than to sell the property  outright.

Company, because we refused  to allow them to write our advertisement (!) this, after paying them nearly $10,000  for freight during the past year, is very kind of them. We do not mind employing  this good, accommodating, patriotic corporation as common carriers, but we draw the  line at employing them as our advertising agents. Writing advertisements is the most  sacred of the prerogatives of the head of this firm; he has always done it without'assistance; he proposes to continue to do it without being dictated to by the C. P. R. or any  other railway company, and if the C. P. R. is wise, it will not attempt to meddle in  , other people's business, but will confine its efforts to giving an honest dollars' worth of  service to its customers for a dollar. This is our policy, and the people of Kootenay  know it, and.this is why we are working night and day to keep up with our orders. A  carload of coal (Blacksmith's) and a carload of groceries just in. A carload of sugar to  arrive in a day or two.   Call and see us, or write for quotations-Wholesale and Retail.  CORNER BAKER AND JOSEPHINE STREETS, NELSON.  Just received...
