COLIMBrA, SATURDAY. NOVEMBER ^(i, L807.  T  rWO   DOLLARS  A  YEAR.  1/  NELSON   IS   A   LUCKY   CITY.  If   Luck   Had   Not   Been  With   Her  the  City  Would Be in Ashes-Today.  Shortly after 12 o'clock Inst night fire  broke out in the steam laundry on Ward  street", and   before   the   alarm   could   be  "given it  had  gained   considerable  headway. As the laundry building was within  a few feet of the Hume hotel on one side  and     the    Traves-McDonald    block    on  the other, it looked for a time as  if the  whole business portion of the city would  be wiped out.    As the water could not be  turned into the new mains, the fire company had to  be   content   with  a   puny  stream of water from the old  water system, and   with   bucket  brigades   passing  ��� water  from  Ward creek.    Despite these  drawbacks the members of the lire company and  the citizens generally went to  work  with a  will, and anxiety with  respect to  the   Traves-McDonald   building  was   soon   removed.     It    was "a   much  harder   fight   to save  the   Hume   hotel.  Prom the  basement to the eaves it was  afire in a score of places, and few of the  spectators expected to see1 the  building  .saved.    By sticking hard  at their work,  however, the fire in  the hotel was  kept  under control  until   the  frame  work  of  the laundry building fell  in, after which  it was speedily stumped out.  The laundry in which the fire started  was owned by J. H. Gibbon and G. Clea-  land. The fire originated in the drying  room, and it is supposed that some pieces  of washing became overheated and ignited. Leslie Brant, the laundry firm's  engineer, was asleep in the building when  the fire broke out and he immediately  gave the alarm. The laundry, its plant  and stock of washing on hand were totally destroyed. The rustic on the rear  end of one of the wings of the Hume hotel  was practically burned out, as were also  the eaves boards. The greatest damage  to the hotel, however, was occasioned by  the opening of windows into several newly  plastered rooms which allowed the plaster  to freeze. Some damage was also occasioned by water, but taken all in all, the  contractors, as well as the owners of the  building, are congratulating themselves  uuon their fortunate escape. The Traves-  McDonald building fared even better  than the Hume hotel. The'rear wall was  scorched, so that it will require to be repainted. Tlie laundry people are unable  to estimate their loss at present and it  will require several davs to arrive at the  damage done to the Hume hotel, but in  any case it is.not likely to_excced..$500.

These unreported  shipments will go into the next dividend,  to be declared on December.  FERN CLEANS UP $15,000.  Will Receive the  Attention of Alderman Hil-  lyer at the Next Council Meeting.  The city council held a .short session  Monday afternoon, all members being  present save aldermen Dow and Gilker. l  With respect to the application, of the  the Kootenay Gaslight & Power Company  for a city franchise, alderman Fletcher of  the public works committee, requested an  extension of time in which to report upon  the same. The extension was granted  and the report will came before the next  meeting of the council.  The council decided to lay a sidewalk  in front of the Hume hotel at the corner  of Ward aud Vernon streets, provided  the owners of the property supply the  material.  Alderman Hillyer gave notice that at  the next meeting of the council he would  move a resolution in respect to the sale  and measurement of wood.  The following accounts were passed and  ordered paid:  Thompson Stationery Co.. office supplies   John Stephen, streets   National Tube Works; waterworks   It Has r>re Enough in Sight to Run Twenty  Stamps for Twelve Months.  The Pern Gold Mining and Milling Company made a clean-up last week after 37  days running with ten stamps. During  this period something over 1000 tons of  ore were treated, which gave an average  milling value of $11.HO per ton. In all,  the clean-up returned $15,000, of which  sum $12,000 was in gold bricks and the remaining $3000 in concentrates, which were  consigned to the Hall Mines smelter.  As this is the first practical test which  has been made of the Fern ore, the shareholders in the company are naturally  very jubilant over the result. It is conclusive evidence that the Pern is all right,  and should have an appreciable effect  upon the stock. The ore which went  through the mill for this clean-up was iu  no sense picked, but may be fairly considered as the run of the mine.1  The future of the Pern Mining, company  is decidedly bright. There is ore enough  in sight to keep a 20-stamp mill ruuning  for one year, a,nd when the additional ten  stamps are installed the Fern will undoubtedly be ranked with the dividend  payers. Development work upon the  property is being pushed ahead systematically. Work has been commenced upon  a hew tunnel, which will give an additional depth of 350 feet. There are considerable quantities of high grade ore iu  the Kern which will run $150 to the ton.  A sample shipment of 25 tons of this ore  will be made to the Hall Mines smelter  within the next few clays. The Pern  Mining company differs from most companies organized in Kootenav. Tt is  stocked for the modest sum of $200,000, so  that the property has every chance of  paying substantial dividends upon the  capitalization. Stock is selling freely at  100 per cent premium.

Mackintosh, this week purchased the Great Western mining property for $100,000. The sum of $25,000 was  paid down, and the balance is to be paid  on January 1st, .1898. The property is located in the northeastern portion of Rossland, within the city limits, and has a  hoist, compressor, drill and pump plant.  There is an incline shaft on the vein,  which is down to a depth of 100 feet. At  the surface the ore was stringy, but a few  days ago a solid body of chalcopyrite and  pyrrhotite and ealcite of a.shipping grade  was uncovered.  Mineral Exports of Southern Kootenay  For the First Week' Reach $242,966.  During the past week there was entered  at the port of Nelson for export 200 tons  of matte from the Trail smelter and 937  tons of ore from the mines of the Slocan.  The matte was entered at a  valuation of  $170,000, the Slocan ore. -with the addition of 50 tons from the Ainesworth camp  bringing the- total export value up to  $242,900 for the week.

The PimiiK'ial Times, of London, contains the prospectus of the Queen Bess  Proprietary Company, Limited, a company which has been formed for the purpose of acquiring and working the Queen  Bess group of six claims in the Slocan.,  This company is stocked for ��120,000, ami  will pay ��85,000 for the Queen Bess group.  Of,this amount the vendors agree to take  ��33,333 in company stock, and .the balance, ��51,067, iu either cash or shares as  the directors may see fit. Por the purpose of providing working capital ��15,000  worth of stock will be issued, making  ��100,000 in all. The remaining ��20,000  will be kept as,a reserve.  The prospectus gives a highly colored,,  account of the value of the Queen Bess  group. It sets out that there have been  2000 feet of tunneling done upon the property, and that there are $174,500 worth  of ore in sight. The directors also go 011  record as being confident of the propertys  ability .to earn large and increasing dividends from the day the property is taken  over.  The prospectus contains a   number ,of  inaccuracies.     in  order   to  indicate   the,  great speculative value of the Queen Bess  group,  it   suites   that   from    the  Idaho-  Cumberland mines, which  were recently  sold for $-100,000, ore to  the value of $500,-  000 had since been taken out.    In the first  place,     the    Idaho-Cumberland     mines  brought no such figure.    In June last the  Scottish   Colonial   Gold  Fields,  Limited,  purchased the Idaho mine, Alamo mine,  Cumberland mine, Yakima group of mines,  Ivauhoe group of mines, the Three  Forks  concentrator and  tramway  for $400,000.  Since the purchase was  made the Idaho-  Cumberland /mines   have   not   produced  anything like $500,000 worth of ore, nor  have all the claims included in the Scottish Colonial company's purchase shipped  anything like that amount.   The bulk of  the  ore  from, these  properties, together  with   much  from  the Slocan Star, Reco,  Enterprise, Lanark and other properties,  has gone out by way of Revelstoke, unci  the aggregate returns of mineral  exports  from the oul.port of Revelstoke for the  four  months   following  the  purchase of  the Scottish Colonial company's property  did not exceed $350,000.   The  total   value  of the mineral exports of all the mines in  southern Kootenay from the time of the  Scottish   Colouial   purchase   to ...October  30tli  was  only $3,210,902,  and  the  statement that the Idaho-Cumberland''' properties contributed  one-sixth   of the   whole  output of southern Kootenay is. to put it  mildly, rather absurd.  Upon.'a-"capitalization of ��120,000 the  Queen Bess miningcpmpany may be able  to pay dividends, but the stocking of the  Queen Bess group at this figure brings  home the conviction that the British investor is invariably called upon to pay a  very long price for any mining interests  Which he acquires by the purchase of  stock in mining companies organized for  his convenience. It is only a few weeks  ago since the Queen Bess group was offered for .sale upon au $S5,000 bond, with  a ten per cent cash payment. ��� If there  had been anything like $474,500 worth of  of ore in sight it is hard to understand an  intending purchaser refusing to touch it  at that figure, yet such was the case. The  British investor is now being called upon  to take stock in a company whose property will cost it $425J000 in round numbers,  but which could have been purchased six  weeks ago for $85,000. on time.  NEW   MINING   REGULATION.  Relief Provided For Those Whose Licenses Are  Allowed to .Lapse. -  The Official Gazette of last week contains the following notice with respect to  a change in the regulations by which provision is. made for the relief of those who  allow their mining licenses to elapse:  Notice is hereby given that his honor  the lieutenant-governor in council has  been pleased to repeal the regulation of  the llth.day of December. 1S90, with regard to relief against forfeiture owing to  the lapse of a free miner's certificate heretofore in force, and to make the following  regulation in respect'thereof, such repeal  and new regulation to take eil'ect on the  15th day of November, 1897.  Any person or joint stock company, being the holder of any mining property,  desiring relief against the forfeiture of  his or its interest in suclrproperty by reason of an omission to obtain a new free  miner's eertillcate on or before the day  following the expiration of the certificate,  shall observe the following conditions:  1. Porthwith upon ascertaining the expiry of his certificate obtain a new one :  2. At tile time of obtaining such new  certificate file with the recorder issuing  the same, and post, in the record office, a  notice of his inteutiou to apply for relief:  3. Within 30 days from such.filing transmit to the minister of mines the following  documen ts and tee:���  (a.) A statutory declaration setting  forth the circumstances of such omission,  with full particulars of the mining properties held,by the applicant which would  be affected with forfeiture:  (b.) A certificate under the hand of the  gold commissioner or mining recorder of  each division wherein any of the said  properties is situate, that notice has been  posted, and that no records (other than  those mentioned in the said certificate, if  any) adverse to the applicant's interest in  the said properties have been made by  him during the time in which the said applicant was not in possession of a valid  existing'free miner's certificate:  (c.) A declaration by the applicant, or  his agent duly cognizant of the location  on the ground of the applicant's properties, and the other facts affecting the  case, that he has searched the records of  claims recorded during the interval the  applicant was in default, and that such  claims do not (except as may be therein  stated) conflict with or overlap any of the  properties of the applicant:  (d.) The sum of five dollars.  '; The minister of-miines may thereupon  give instructions for the alteration of the  date of the applicant's free miner's certificate so as to conform with the date of  the expiration of the lapsed certificate,  and may also give instructions for such  amendment to be made to the records  affected as may be considered requisite,  and any such relief may be partial as to  properties in respect whereof relief is  given, or so as to save adverse rights acquired during default of the applicant.  policy of the bilks who'operate the coal  mines of the Keystone state.

The survey has been completed for the  Kaslo & Lardo-Duncau railway, for which  a charter was granted last winter by the  provincial government. President D. J.  Muiin of the Kaslo & Slocan railway is  also president of thiscompany. The road  when built will start at Argenta, at the  northeast end of Kootenay lake, follow  up the east side of Lower Duncan river,  pa<-s around the east side of llowser lake  and follow the Upper 'Duncan to the  mouth of Hall creek. A branch line is to  cross the Duncan river below Duncan  City aud follow up the Lardo river to  Trout Lake.    ___���   Another Whitewater Dividend.  Thirty thousand dollars were divided  among the owners of the Whitewater  mine in Kaslo on Monday. Two thousand  dollars were placed in the working fund,  and about $5,000 carried forward. This  makes the total dividends to date  very near the $100,000 mark. Ninety-  four thousand dollars . is the exact  amount divided to date.    Calculating the  A Change of Venue.  A Texas judge was robbed of a horse,  not long ago, and the thief, being apprehended, was brought before him for trial.  The judge eyed the prisoner with deep  satisfaction for a,.minute or so,"and then  delivered himself of the following: '"Owing to a personal prejudice, the court will  not hear this case. It will be tried by the  bailiff, wlio will find a verdict in accordance with the facts. In the meantime,"  he added, impressively, "the court will go  outside and bend a rope and pick out a  good tree." .  Sharing the Captain's Stateroom.  A shy Australian major, on an Australian liner, after spending the first evening  very late with his friends in the saloon,  suddenly returned to them after saying  "Good-night," and requested an interview  ' with the purser. He was very white.  "There is a lady," he said, "in my cabin-  No. 42." "We'll put you somewhere else  for the night, and see about it in the  morning." said the purser. At dawn they  sought the steward and demanded an explanation. "It's all a mistake, gentlemen," he said: "it's captain Higsrinson all  right: here's his luggage." "We must  have this explained," said the purser;  "this portmanteau is unlocked: let us see  what is in it." It contained a lady's wearing apparel "By jingo!" cried the steward, a sudden light breaking on him;  "that's what comes of taking names as  don't belong to us. She said she was captain Higgiuson; but she didn't say as it  was only in the Salvation Army!"  Mowat and Mills Take the Oath.  Sir Oliver Mowat was sworn in lieutenant-governor of Ontario, and Hon. David  Mills, minister of justice, in Toronto on  Thursday, in presence of the governor-  general.  There is some talk  to the effect  that  the ore from the Enterprise will go to the  Pilot Pay smelter. Some of the owners in  the Enterprise are also said to be interested in the smelter venture. The Enterprise is expected' to resume shipments  within the next few weeks.  There was some talk about work being  resumed on the Grady group this summer,  but there is now little hope of the rumor  being verified.. The Grady group is one of  the most promising claims in the Slocan  Lake district, but differences between the  co-owners have prevented its being developed. .  The owners of the Vancouver group  near Silverton, have been working most  of the summer but they are very close-  mouthed about the appearance of their  property. Prom the fact that although  no stoping has been done there are over 100  tons of high grade ore on the dump, it is  assumed that the development of the  group is meeting with encouraging results.  There is not much prospect of the Monitor claim resuming work this winter.  Since the court awarded those who were  fighting for the Wells interest one half of  the property, the contending owners have  not been eible to come to terms.  Dave Bremner announces that work  upon the Wakefield will be resumed this  winter. The Wakefield is situated below  the Reid and Robinson, and it is said that  the Scotch syndicate owning it has $150,-  000 worth of ore in sight.  Moved to Tears.  Dr. Pitcairn, being in a church in Edinburgh where the preacher was not only  emphatic, but shed tears copiously, was  moved to enquire of a countrymany who  sat by him, what it was all about. "What  the devil makes him greet?" was the enquiry. "Faith," said the man, slowly  turning round, "ye had maybe greet your-  sel', if ye was up there aud had as little  to say "  It is Only. Where Labor is Starved that Anarchy Thrives. ;  As a solution of the difficulty which  presents itself to the prosecution of the  silver mining industry in Montana, by  reason of the low price of silver, the Engineering and Mining Journal suggests  that the rate of wages for miners be reduced so as to render profitable to the  mine-owners the working of their properties at the present price of silver. The  reply of the Western Mining World of  Butte, to this argument is worth reading,  especially in view of the contention that  miners' wages in southern Kootenay must  come down.   The Mining World says:  The Journal would introduce into the  west the wage system that was skimmed  by imps from the broth of hell to people  eastern avenues of toil with degraded  men, emaciated children and brokenhearted wives: it would add to the blight  of an industry the bleeding hearts of a  broken people, and upon the smouldering  ruins of a happy home erect the shack of  the hobo and the hopes of the slave. Perhaps more capital might be invited into  the development of the mineral resources  of this state if wages were graded to the  level of the Pennsylvania coal fields,  where half-starved barbarians struggle  for bread and children grow up more savage than their sires, but in a great industrial state like ours capital upon such  terms would demand for usury the manhood of the commonwealth. "Whatdoth  it profit a'man to gain the whole world  and lose hi.s own soul." Labor organized  upon a basis that makes it honorable to  toil and that invites into its ranks honest,  upright, intelligent, God-fearing men, is  the highest protection and support that  capital can command. It is the degradation of labor that injects into the ranks of  toil the spirit of anarchy and disrespect  of law, just as aristocratic idleness breeds  contempt for the humble and a disregard  for human life. ���  Its wage system makes Montana today  the safest place on the continent for the  investment of capital, for it places the  balance of power in the hands of men  who are to the west what the intelligent  farmers are to the east, and insures the  development of the state along patriotic  lines. All the soft-snap seeking capital  ulcerating in the vaults of Wall Street  will, not induce Montana to exchange the  pleasant relations now existing between  the mine-owners and their employes,  growing out of a system that diffuses a  percentage of wealth ring out of a locality  among the diversified business interests of  that community,   for the  hobo-breeding  The gold bricks from the Pern mine, aggregating in value $12,000, were deposited  in the Bank of Montreal in this city this  week. This consignment of bullion from  the Pern is the largest which has been  made, to either of the chartered banks in  this city.  Among the new arrivals in Nelson tire  Miss Hurry, daughter of Fred K. and Mrs.  Hurry, and Miss Traves, daughter of  Webster _and.. M\y. jrray.ejs.__.The new  comers are very'much impressed with the  apparent commercial superiority* of Nelson and most sanguine for its future.  11 is currently reported that the furnace  of the Pilot Ba,y smelter will not be  blown in this year. The concentrator has  been overhauled and is ready for use. The  concentrator may start up next week, but  the furnace has yet to be relined.  The first train over the Slocan River-  branch of the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company's system will be an excursion  train from this city. The people of Slocan City are getting ready to celebrate  the opening of the railway.  If the Spokane Review persists in advertising Spokane as an outfitting point for  intending Klondykers, after the'publication of Hon. Clifford Sifton's speech, it  should . be boycotted by every honest  miner in the United States and Canada.  Next summer Canadian customs officers  will command every avenue into the  Klondyke, and duty will be collected  upon evevy pound of dutiable goods from  foreign countries. To induce those starting for the Klondyke to purchase their  supplies in Spokane, in the face of this  avowed policy on the part of the Canadian  government, is dishonest. When the time  comes next spring for the departure of  those bound for the Klondyke Spokane  will not be as favorably situated for the  outfitting of Klondyke parties as will  llykert's, B. C.  There is one very unpleasant feature in  connection with the Lillooet Praser  River' Company's present difficulties,  and that is the close association of  Porbes" G."'Vernon 'with the company/  When the L. P. K. & 0. G. P. company was organized, Porbes G. Yev-  11011, agent-general for the province in  London, was'made a director. The press  of the province demanded that Vernon  either sever his connection with the company or with the province as agent-  general, but premier Turner winked at  tlie use of the agent-general's position for  the furtherance of the inininor company's  interests. The company is now in bad  odor, and   through   Vernon's connection  HURRY'S   MILK   WAS   ADULTERATED.  vv ho  cil i-  The Fact  Established,  to Judge Fortn's Satis  faction and a Pine Imposed. ','  . Frederick K. Hurry, a milk de/ih-M  supplies a very large.number of rh.  zens of Nel-ofi with milk, was convicted  before judge Fnrin Friday evening, with  ha ving in his possession for tin- purpose  of sale, milk unfit for human food. \V. A.  Macdonnld, Q. C, conducted the ci-e for  the crown.  The prosecution in  this ca-e wax in-ti-'  tuted   by  the   city   council   through  its  healih  officer,  Dr.  LaBau.    Hurry's milk  wagon   was intercepted one morning by  constable McKiunon, and  twelve samples  of   milk   were    secured.    Tht-se    -amples  were delivered to A. H. Uoldich foranaly-.  sis.    Tlie result of Iioldicb's analysis was  to say  the least,  startling.    Out of the  twelve samples taken from Hurry's wagon  two samples were of Spokane milk, and  upon these the analyst reported that they  were of a   very  low grade of  milk; but  probably genuine.    Of the remaining ten  samples of,Hurry's milk, taking the lowe-r,  known.grade of genuine milk as a  standard,  the analyst reported that the milk  'iad   been  adulterated all .the way from  per cent, by the addition of  five to over 27  with it the provincial government and  the province generally is mixed up in the  mess. Por''this 'phase of tlie trouble premier Turner is wholly to blame. He should  have had sufficient backbone to. compel  Forbes G. Vernon to give up his connection with the mining company or upon  Vernon's refusal so to do he should have  fired him.  J. Fred Hume, .Lick Kirkpatrick, James  McDonald, D. McArthur, and-Ed Traves,  the owners of the property adjacent, to  the steam laundry building destroyed by  fire this morning, take this opportunity  for thanking the citizens, of Nelson for  their assistance in keeping the fire from  spreading to their property.  George A. Bigelow got back to Nelson  in time to direct the efforts of the volunteers in checking this morning's live. .At  a fire Bigelosv is worth an entire fire department rolled into one..  W. Hunter, of Three Porks, the pioneer  steamboat man of Slocan lake, was in  Nelson this week. He says that the development around Slocan lake during the  past year has so swelled the receipts of  the little steamer William Hunter that  during the first six months of the year  the steamer cleared a dividend of 100 per  cent upon the .'capital invested by her  owners. There were seasons in its early  history, when the little steamer did not  earn anything, but taken all'.together it  has proven a profitable investment for  the men who in 1892 put their money info  the venturt;. Among these men were .1.  Pred .Hume, .John Houston, JohnR. Cook,  S. M. Wharton and James Dawson.  water, and that in maii5r cases some fatty  substance had b��en added for the purpose  of bringing up the percentage of fat. Just  what compound was used by Hurry for  this purpose was not disclosed by the  analyst, who, contented himself ��� by describing it as some substance containing  fat or oil.  Aside from the analysis of the milk the,,  chief evidence in the case was tendered  by Dr. La Ban. who gave his opinion as a -  medical man that the milk analyzed by  IToldich was unfit for human food iu that  it was unfit for the use of children and invalids.  W. Galliher, who conducted the prisoner Hurry's defence, made the'mostof a  hopeless case. He contended that the  prosecution had failed in that it had not  shown that the milk in Hurry's wagon at  the time the .samples were taken was for  stile, aud that the bottles should have been  sealed so that there could be no .question  that no one other than Hurry put the  water and other odd things in the milk  before it reached the hands of A. 11. Hol-  dieh.  Judge Forin, in summing up the case,  said that he had not the slightest doubt  but that the prisoner Hurry watered his  milk and otherwise adulterated it as  shown by the evidence of analyst Holdich.  He considered such an act as one of the  most atrocious of crimes, although some  people looked upon it as a joke. He imposed a fine of $25 in lieu of imprisonment.  To the average man it will appear that  Hurry got off too easily. It will be hard  to make people understand that a line of  $25 is sufficient punishment for defrauding the people of a community by selling  them'milk-containing'27 per cent'more  water than the lowest known grade of  the genuine article. There is. however,  another way of looking'at it. The conviction establishes the fact that the /milk  supplied by Hurry was shamefully adulterated. Those who want pure milk/will  go elsewhere for it.' If there is not another  supply available at present, the demand  will create it.  H.  his  W. Drew leaves on  Monday  lome   in   Kingston.

The Evening Star -.'mineral claim, on  Dayton creek, about four miles .from Slocan City," was-sold ;on Thursday last to  Hugh Sutherland's Winnipeg syndicate.  The terms were $5000 cash, and the balance, $45,000, in 00 days. The Evening  Star was owned by George Petty of Three  Porks, and James Sanderson of Slocan  City. The vein has been cut at a depth  of 75 feet from the 'surface,.and' is very  rich in silver sulphides and gold. A carload lot recently sold to the Hall Mines  smelter contained 22(i ounces silver and  $18 iu gold to the ton.  Another Strike at Yinir.  The Lindblade brothers, owners of the  Summit properly near Vmir, made a big  strike upon their property recently. They  resinned work in a shaft, .which was  started by a company which had a working bond upon the Summit,  -inking six feet encountered  ledge of very rich'quartz. A  men was put  ment for mill  and   after  a   six-foot  'orce of  12  to work at once and, ship-  test will shortly be made.  Lucky Jim Commences Shipping.  The Lucky Jim tramway was completed  last week and on Monday the shipping of  ore to the Pilot Bay smelter began. The  ore is coming down from the; mine at the  rate of 80 tons per day, and the property  is sufficiently well developed to keep up  this rate of shipping dm ing the remainder of the winter. The ore is shipped in  bulk.   ��� _ _ ___  Killed in a Snowslide.  Joe McGibben, a miner employed on the  Red Pox. was killed in a snowslide Saturday night.

ISD7  Two   weeks   ago   This   Triiuwk   commented upon  che olrcum.stiince  that the  judges of the supreme court in  this province did not. rwspect  the dignity of their  .courts   themselves,   and   intimated   that  until they did it would   be idle to expect  the general public to have due respect for  them,    hi  this connection The Tuiiu:.vk  stated that respect I'or the judicial office  was   not shown  by  adding  a  couple, of  years t<> an offenders'sentence for a flippant   word,   by  the   bullying   of   grand  jurors when  they failed  to look at local  issues iu the same light as the presiding  judge, by the trying of cases by a judge  so deaf that  he could  hear but partially  the evidence adduced, or by the considering of business interests in the sentencing  of persons charged with criminal offences.  These remarks did not please the Colonist,  as tho following  will  show:    "We desire  "' to   say   that   tlie  observations  of   the  " Nelson TuriJiWK in regard to the bench  " of British Columbiaare entirely uncalled  " tor and in the highest degree discredita-  " ble to any publication in this province.  " The bench of this province has the de-  " served   reputation   of   being honorable  "' aud   impartial.     Its   members   are   in-  " spired  by a  desire  to  discharge  their  " duties to the  best of their ability and  ���' with an eye single  to the  public* inter-  '; est. If at any time any of them is guilty  '' of an act which calls for criticism, by  "' all  means  let it  be criticised,  but  let  *��� what is said be said definitely aud not by  " miserable innuendo.   There is   nothing  " courageous in such a course as The Tri-  " hunk has seen fit to adopt."   Since the  editor of the Colonist is ignorant of the  actions of the judges  whose conduct he  would defend, The Trikune will  furnish  him   with  the details  he  hankers  after.  The first offense complained of was committed in the city of   Victoria  about the  first of March. .1.S95, when justice Crease,  having sentenced a sailor named Simpson  to   five   years"  imprisonment  for  housebreaking   and    robbery,   added   another  three years' imprisonment to  the  prisoners' sentence for his flippant reply,"Thank  you, my lord." The action of justice Crease  was   so   flagrant a   violation  of  the administration of justice that the sentence  was afterwards reversed by the minister  of justice at Ottawa.    The second  offence  was committed by chief justice  Davie ait  the assi/.e court sitting in Nelson in  August. LS90, when upon the grand jury's refusal to indict the Hamilton Powder Company for maintaining a magazine  where  the company had the government agent's  warrant for maintaining it, chief justice  Davie soughtto bully the grand jurorsiuto  compliance  with  his   wishes.    The  third  offence   was   committed   by  justice Mc-  Creight in  continuing to  try  cases  long  after his hearing was so impaired that he  could hear evidence only with the greatest difficulty. The last offence complained  of was the action  of justice   Walkem in  the sentencing of Peter Costello, convicted  of assault.    In this case it will be remembered that justice Walkem  pressed  for a  verdict from the jury of assault with  intent  to do  grievous   bodily   harm.    The  jury returned a verdict of common assault,  and justice  Walkem promptly sentenced  Costello to six months  imprisonment at  hard labor.    A day or  two later justice  Dear'Sir: 1 have to thank you for the prompt settlement of my  claim for v$300, under my combined accident policy No. 52274 for  $5000, in the Ocean Accident & Guarantee Corporation of London,  Kno-land.

Walkem reversed this sentence, as he said  in view of Costello s business interests in  llossland and instead of the penalty first  imposed, sentenced the prisoner to pay a  fine of $100. .If the editor of the Colonist  who has so lately arrived in this province  can show that any one of these acts tended  to-increase the respect of the people of  the province for the courts, it will go to  show that the Turner government secured  a capable man in his selection as their  apologist-in-chief.  Dispatches from Victoria announce  that justice McCreight will bid farewell  to the supreme court bench at the meeting of the full court on Wednesday.  Justice McCreight is credited with being  an able jurist, but the infirmity of advanced years has rendered him incapable  of discharging his judicial duties. There  is nothing discreditable to justice McCreight in the circumstance that he has  become too deaf to hear evidence tendered  from the witness stand, and his decision  to retire from the bench shows that he  has more respect for the dignity of his  judicial office than had that portion of  the provincial press which insisted that  he should remain on the bench whether  he was deaf or not.  Tin-: action of premier Turner and other  members  of  his cabinet in  prostituting  their   public   offices   by   associating   the  same with discreditable mining schemes  for the purpose of giving them an air of  respectability,  is  bearing   its legitimate  fruit. ' The Dawson City (Klondyke).and  Dominion Trading Company is the title of  the latest concern which has solicited subscriptions   from   the  British   public.   In  .this company premier Turner and Hon.  Charles .E. Pooley, president of the executive council, figure as members of the advisory board  for British Columbia.    Despite  the   use   of   the   name  of  premier  Turner, British,investors refused to have  anything to  do  with   the company, and  the press of Great Britain is  now speculating as to the standard of morality in a  province wherein the first minister lends  his. name  to  such a  shady   transaction.  The Pall Mall Gazette, in referring to the  failure of the Dawson City company to  float  its  stock, says:    "The market took  " the  full   measure of  this  undertaking  " very speedily, and carefully let it alone.  " The method of issue was of the nature  " which the 'House' strongly dislikes, as  "the offering of deferred shares only is  " resented.   From what we learn the re-  " spouse is so small that it is quite unnec-  ." essary further to dissect   the emascu-  " lated portions of this stillborn financial  " venture.    That it should prove a  fiasco  ".is what was  to be expected,  when a  "grandiloquent scheme is put before the  " public with a capital of =��000,000, with-  " out equipment of  any sort or kind  to  " perform  that  for which the company  " was ostensibly promoted.    Its real ob-  " ject'was only too apparent."  Saturday evening's meeting of the  ratepayers ot Hossland demonstrated to  the people of that city the utter unreliability of the editor of the Rossland Miner.  In the face of the fact that the Rossland  city council had  no power to pledge the  credit of the municipality for more than  $;"50,000 without the consent of the ratepayers, the editor of the Miner repeatedly  announced, that the city council had  pledged the credit of the municipality for  $100,000. Since" it was demonstrated at  Saturday evening's, meeting that the  council could not pledge the credit of the  municipality for a greater sum than  $50,000, it remains for those who have the  well fare of Rossland at heart, to estimate  the damage done to their city through the  publication of a paper edited by one who  is either a liar or an ass. or both, if what  the Miner said about mayor Scott and his  council were true, they should be iu jail  instead of serving in the city hall. . Rossland suffers from the Miner's libels, for  the reason that outside readers who read  the Miner's accusations will not have an  opportunity to see their refutations since  the editor of the Miner is too cowardly to  publish tkem;   Triii: Colonist in commenting upon F.  Aug. Heinze's recovery from his recent  illness, says: "British Columbia cannot  afford to lose such men as R Aug. Heinze."  It is safe to say that R Aug. Heinze  worried more over his prospect of losing  British Columbia than of the province  losing him.   A meeting of the shareholders of the  British Columbia Smelting & Refining  Company of Trail, will be held on Tuesday, November 30th, for the purpose of  considering the advisability of disposing  of the whole assets of the company. This  intimation will no doubt be received with  alarm by those who have been led, by  newspaper gush, to believe that the future  of British Columbia depended upon F.  Aug. Ilein/.e's philanthropy, as evidenced  at Trail.   ���  This Rossland Record states that mayor  Scott told the truth when he stated that  he never made a better bargain than he  did when he sold Rosslaud's six per cent  debentures at about par. This goes to  show that mayor Scott has to make his  first good bargain.  TliK Klondyke discoveries have galvanized the British Pacific Railway humbug  into life. Application will be made for ado-  minion charter at the next session of the  commons, to enable the company to build  a net-work of railways in the Canadian  Y"nkon. It looks as if the British Pacific  promoters intended to make one more  effort to secure the purse of $020,000 which  premier Turner last session hung up for  their benefit.  The London Daily Chronicle confirms  the story that the pope will not accept  the Laurier-Greenway settlement of the  Manitoba school question as final. Since  the people of Manitoba, and of Canada  generally, have accepted the Laurier  settlement it does not matter much to the  people of Canada whether the pope accepts it or not.  The Vancouver World is endeavoring  to persuade the people of British Columbia that the integrity of the dominion of  Canada is threatened by the appointment  of William Tern pieman to the senate in  preference to J. C. McLagan, of the Van  eouver World. Most people in this province are of the opinion that the Laurier  government in its choice between the two  aspirants avoided this very difficulty.

The report of the extraordinary general  meeting of the Vancouver and British Columbia. General Exploration Company,  Limited, which was referred to last week,  has been received. In view of the glowing promises of the prospectus of the  Galena Mines, Limited, the experience of  the V. & B. C. G. K. Company, the largest,  holders of Galena stock is interesting.  1*. Comiskey, chairman of the company,  presided.    In his address he stated   that  although the time had not arrived for the  holding of the annual meeting, the directors had thought it advisable to call the  shareholders together and let them know  the present position of affairs.    It  would  be remembered that after the formation  of the company they  were fortunate  in  securing two very good options, one of a  property called the Reade and Tenderfoot,  and another known as the Galena.    The.  board paid more attention to the Galena  Farm than to any of the other properties,  because they looked upon it as the most  important, property   they had.    Having  secured a bond on the various properties  forming the group, they made considerable developments, and after some time  decided that it was desirable to close the  bond aud purchase the property.   Having  done   this,  their engineer and  manager  who was supposed to be a first-class miner,  decided  upon   the course  of action, and  everything tended to one direction, namely, that this was a  very  valuable property.    Consequently, operations were begun  on  a large scale,  and a shaft  was  started  and   sunk  a depth  of   200   feet.  Cross-cuts from this shaft, at the  100-foot  level and also at Lhe 200-foot level, were  made, but he was sorry to say that so far  as the exploration had gone the developments  had  not  been   so  satisfactory as  they had anticipated.   It  appeared  that  the lode at the end of the property  became broken or twisted, with the result  that this shaft had proved not to be in as.  good a position as it ought to have been  placed.    This had thrown thing�� back   to  a  large exteut, and they had been compelled to drive from the shaft to the old  workings, where the original good prospects were discovered.   The driving had  been   pushed  on as  rapidly as  possible,  and they were now at the   100-foot level,  getting  under  what  was  called  the old  shaft, where the lode had been proved to  a depth: of 7n feet, and   where  they had  driven  on it for some distance arid  got  what was considered to be a fine body of  ore.; There could not be much doubt that  '  the reports' in the first instance were exaggerated, whether purposely or not  he  could not say.  . AVhile a large body of ore  contained, a   considerable    quantity    of  galena,  it now  turned out that it also  contained a high percentage of /inc.  This  '.zinc practically made the working of tlie  mine most difficult, and  interfered   with  the treatment of the ore so much  that it  destroyed its value to a great extent. This  was a serious point in connection with the  treatment of the ores, audat the present  moment they were negotiating with some  gentlemen who stated  they could  treat  the zinc ore, separating it from the other  ore by anew process, of which the secret  was   only   known   to   themselves.     The  board had tabulated the figures  and   reports of the property, and  were going to  hand them to the gentlemen who owned  this process.  Mr. W. A. Carlyle,   the provincial  mineralogist to the Bureau of Mines, Victoria,  British Columbia, had in his official report  given  his opinion on   the  Galena  Mines,  and   the development  which  had   taken  place up to his arrival.    Mr. Carlyle had  visited   the   Galena   Farm,  and  had  expressed himself in the same way  as the  others.    He need hardly say that the evidence of such a man was very convincing  to the board: so much so that they had  not a shade of doubt as to the nature of  the property.    The shareholders had only  to read  Mr.  Carlyle's report to the government���-copies of which were to be had  in the room���to conclude at once that  it  was considered to be a most valuable property.    With all these facts before them  the board was not without hope that the  Galena Farm might yet turn out to be a  very good property, although they had  been unfortunate in commencing operations at the wi'ong end of the ground. He  did not know that there was any person  to blame for this, because the shaft  was  sunk on the spot where it was considered  to be most centrally situated for the general development of the property, which  was a very large one. Tlie board had done  all that it could to further the  interests  of lhe company, and the best proof of its  eanmstness  he  could   give  was  to state  that the directors, with two or three of  the   original   founders  of  the syndicate  with  whom  they  were as-ociated,  held  one half of the  stock of the Vancouver  Syndicate,.while the directors themselves  Black    Jack,    the    Terror    of    Western    New  Mexico.   .  One of the most interesting of the modern western desperadoes is the notorious  Black Jack of western New Mexico. The  identity of this individual is so shrouded  in mystery that there'is some doubt as to  whether he really exists, but every outrage that; occurs on i,he border between  New Mexico and Arizona, is immediately  credited to this man. He has been killed  on innumerable occasions, but time has  always proven that ir, was one of-the  members of his gang.  Black Jack's real name is said to be McDonald, and it is stated that he is a college graduate of handsome and engaging  appearance, and with a great respect in  his marauding for poor persons and  women,   the   latter   receiving   the  most  The company is a close corporation.

PROBABLY   A   FORGERY. '  epairer  chivalrous treatment at his hands. He is  supposed to have been in the territory for  about two years, and his nerve aud audacity are proverbial throughout the western part of New Mexico: It is narrated  of him that at one time he fell behind his  gang when a posse of government officers  were in pursuit. He found himself confronted by twelve Winchesters and his  horse was shot from under him, falling  upon his rifle. Although a target for the  officers, he calmly rolled the animal over,  secured his rifle and returned the brisk  fire which had been opened upon him. He  escaped and relieved a lone horseman of  his mount. An express agent at Separ  once incautiously bragged of his lack of  fear of Black Jack. A very few nights  afterwards he received a visit from that  gentleman, who robbed the safe and left  him in a different state of mine in regard  to courage.  On April 17th he was supposed to have  been captured and jailed at Socoro, but it  turned out.to be some one else. On the  2Sth the authorities at Santa Fe received  a dispatch from Clifton, Ariz., sayiug  that marshal Iiiggins had overtaken the  gang fifteen miles from that place, in New  Mexico, and in a battle in a'mountain  pass had killed Sid Moore, five others  escaping. A short time previous to this  Moore and a companion had murdered  George C. Smith in western Socorro  county, and the Masons of the territory  had oifered $1,.")00 reward for the capture  of his assailants. A later report set every  one crazy with joy, for six citizens of  Clifton identified the dead man as Black  Jack himself, and the corpse was photographed, measured, and theu. buried. It  was later discovered, however, that the  dead man was Thomas Ketchum, of St.  Xavier, and not Black Jack or Moore.  A man named James Shaw had informed  the authorities of the gang having, been  in the vicinity of Clifton, and they, swore  to have his life for the death of Ketchum.  His house was blown up with dynamite,  his horse was shot from under him in the  mountains, and finally he was murdered  do western Grant county while following  up Black Jack and his gang.  -Black Jack is said by some to have  come from the Texas panhandle in company with Tom Anderson in June, 1890,  and he terrorized the country from the  panhandle "to Nogales, Arizona. His first  exploit was to murder merchant Herz-  steiu, a .young Philadelphia,!!, who was  postmaster at Liberty, 100 miles south of  Las Vegas, and J. M. Trujillo. a deputy  'sheriff. Iu his gang were himself, Anderson, George Musgrove, a crafty Texas  cowboy; Sid Moore, and the man who  aided him in killing Smith, and Van Musgrove. alias Lewis, a Deming cow-thief.  The United States and Wells-Fargo Express Company both put rewards ou the.  heads of all the gang. Four of the robbers were killed in six months, aud in  that time they killed five settlers. The  dead robbers were: Cole Young, killed  October 2, 1800, near Albuquerque: Bob  Hayes, at Silver City, in December of the  same year, and an uuknown trainrobber  at Peach Springs, in January, 1897.  Ketchum, the supposed Black Jack, was  the last.  One of Black Jack's most daring exploits was to notify a party of seventeen,  who all resided in one room at San Simon,  that he would shortly call upon them. He  was as good as his word, holding up the  entire seventeen and getting away unharmed. He is said to have told his gang  that he knew that his end could not be  far off, but while he was on earth he intended to have his own way. Lately he  has not been heard from.  The New   York  Journal  publishes  the  paper claimed to have been found recently  in the Vatican, purporting to be tlie report made by 1'nur.ius Pilate to Tiberius  Caesar, of his dealings with the crucifixion  of the Messiah.   The paper is exceedingly  interesting.but not convincing.  The style  is not of the age in  which  I'ilate ruled in  Jerusalem,   neither the construction  nor  the phraseology pertains of that age.    It  has not  the tone in  which governors in  that era used in addressing a Roman emperor.   There   are   phrases   which    were  never heard   for   fifteen   hundred  years  after Pilate lived.    True that is not proof  of the unauthenticity of the report, the  changes in phraseology might be made in  the  translation,   but  the change in  the  construction  is,   we  think,  a  fatal   give  away.    Upon  leading it tin  undefinable  feeling is awakened that it is a forgery.  That is, we think this will be the conclusion of any one familiar with Roman history and the style of language and  construction of Roman state papers;   We believe that it is a  forgery and   by  some  Spanish scholar.  This thought is born of a.single sentence.  Pilate' is made to say that he is of mixed  Roman and Spanish parentage, and consequently must be absolutely destitute of  fear, but' that he trembled when the  Christ, at his summons, entered his judgment hall. A Roman governor would  hardly have written anything like that.  Roman officers were not iu the habit'of  describing .their own valor in their reports. There 'is still another factor  against the genuineness of the paper more  potent than all the rest. There has not  been a moment since the Roman church  was founded when the receipt of a paper  like this would not have been held as a  great event, and the paper would havec  been watched and tended accordingly. It  is almost certainly a forgery.

The taxpayet'S of Rossland on Tuesday  accepted the money by-laws for the borrowing of an additional $15,000 for the  purpose of paying; for the sewer, and  meeting current! expenses for the remainder of the fiscal year. The by-lasvs were  ��� carried by narrow majorities.  W. J. G. Dickson reports having closed  a deal with an English syndicate for the  purchase of 200 town lots in addition A.  The price paid for the" property was not  made public.  The week of self denial, which is observed by members of the Salvation Army  the world over, will b�� observed by members of the local corps from Sunday to  Saturday inclusive. The practice of Salvationists during this period is to fleny  themselves everything in the way of luxuries and turn the money thus saved into  the treasury of the army.  Owing to the continued illness of her  daughter Josie, Mrs. James Lawrence leit  yesterday for Winnipeg, where she will  reside for the winter.  W. Irvine this week purchased the residence of Jciiues Lawrence on Silicia street.  The price paid was iu the neighborhood  of $3,000.  E. T. li. Sitiipkins was married Saturday evening to Miss Edith V. Wilson, of  St. Thomas. Out. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Rob I. Frew.  The action of the city council in exempting all over 50 years of age from payment  of the municipal road tax has developed  the fact that there are more men over  50 years in Nelson than in any other city  in the province. The city council is considering the advisability of publishing a  list of all male residents claiming exemption by reason of having passed the age  limit.   -  H. J. Evans returned to this city  with,  his  bride  this  week.'  H. J. devoted  the  first  two days  to receiving the congratulations of his many friends.  The Canadian Gold .Fields Company, of  this  city,   will    make  another  shipment  ��� from the Howard Fraction group within  the next few days.   The ore will probably  come to the Hall Mines smelter.  Should the city council insist upon the  measurement of all wood sold within the  city limits, it will perform a great service  i'or the consumers of stove wood in this  city. In order to get a full cord of wood  in Nelson it is necessary to have an honest dealer, a  man  who  is  not afraid   of  overworking himself in loading and  throwing off a full cord, and a team of  horses capable-of drawing a full cord  when loaded. There is some difficulty in  securing this favorable combination of  circumstances.  rJOTICE  TO THE LADIES OF NELSON.  Mrs. .1. K.
