' ��  J*cy       .>  FIFTH   raAR.-_ST0.4��r:J(\  <t*  NELSON,   BRITISH   COLHMBIA, \SATURDAY   OCTOBER lfi, 1897.  KOOTENAY    '  Has  Three' Smelters   in   Successful   Operation,  and  Enough   Ore   in Sight to   Run1  Several   More.  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR.  CONTRACTORS   AND   THEIR   EXTRAS.  Messrs. Breckenridge & Lund Make a Demand  Upon tlie Council for a Large Sum. ,  Tho city council held the twenty-sixth  regular session on Monday afternoon.  Present: Mayor Houston, and aldermen  ("illcor, Hillyer, Malone, and Teetzel.  Tlie work of removing rock at the  corner of Stanley and Silica streets was  ordered to be stopped as soon as suflicienr.  depth was reached to lay the water mains  on grade, the council .being of the opinion  that the remaining rock could be removed  at some time in the distant future. One  thousand feet of the 10-inch pipe purchased for tiie waterworks was ordered  to be used in extending the sewer system  to deep water in the outlet, which will be  a saving of $1000.  Breckenridge & Lund, who have contracts for laying tlie flume and building  the reservoir for the waterworks, presented a claim "for extras for removing  rock on flume line and from the reservoir  site, also a claim for bailing water from  reservoir. As their contracts state plainly  that the Hume and the reservoir shall be  .built for lump sums, no extras are likely  to be allowed, .judging from the expressions of the aldermen.  The question of grading .Baker stieet  from Kootenay to Hendryx and Josephine  street from Victoria to .Robson was  brought up by resolution, and tenders  will be called for as soon as the city engineer can set grade stakes. Jt is likely  that Baker street will be graded, but it is  doubtful if there will be money available  for grading .Josephine street. Robson  street from Stanley to Kootenay was  ordered made passable for teams.  The following accounts were passed by  the finance committee and ordered  paid:  W. _ul lierlanil, reeeiving sewer pipe   K. H. .MeNnirn, inspecting laying sower pipe ..  .

'���,' S7.ft!)S 97  McLean <fc Co., who have the contract  for laying the mains for the water works,  refused to present fortnightly payrolls,  but asked for a lump sum with which to  pay their men' The council decided that  they must present payrolls in order to  get.i advances.  Tlie council adjourned till Wednesday  afternoon, at 3 o'clock, when the following named were present: Mayor Houston,  and aldermen Dow, Gilker. Hillyer, and  Teetzel. -  The mayor recommended that 12-inch  pipe be substituted for S-inch in the lateral  sewers on Baker street, from Josephine  street to Stanley street, in order to care  for the surface Water that runs down  Josephine and Stanley streets during the  spring and rainy seasons. As there would  be no delay in procuring the pipe, the  council ordered the change.  ... Tenders were opened for laying the  sewers on Ward street from Baker to  Silica, on 'Victoria from Stanley to Ward,  and ou Silica from Stanley to Ward.

A resolution asking the provincial government to make Nelson a city school dis-.  trict was adopted.  Street Lighting By-law, No. 10, was  considered in committee, reported, and  read a third time.  Alderman Dow gave notice that he  would at the next meeting of the council  introduce a bv-law for the imposition and  collection of a road tax in the city.  Before adjourning the council discussed  the wood measuring question, but as the  council has no authority to pass a by-law  providing for the measurement of wood,  the wood dealers will probably keep on  delivering three-quarters 'of a cord for a  cord. ' <  Some Fancy Assays from the Horsefly.  G. W. Roche, who is interested in Ainsworth properties, in speaking of the strike  on the Horsefly claim in Granite district,  back of the Skyline, says, "0. L. Brush  owns the claim, with three others, and he  showed me assay certificates both by  Ainsworth and Portland assayers, showing that surface ore ran as high as 37-12  ounces in silver to the ton, while at a  depth of 10 feet the highest assay showed  4,(>21 ounces, valued at $2,312.01 to the  ton, and a second assay obtained  showed a, value of $54-1 to the ton. The  ore is black sulphides and chlorides."  Police Court Cases.  Hip Chong was before the police magistrate on Monday for a breach of the fire  limits by-law. A.s the Chinaman had removed the building upon which the charge  was based, a nominal fine of $2.50 and  costs was imposed.  Lee Smith, alias "Loving Lee," was on  The TraU Creek Smelter Makes Bis Shipment  of Gold Bullion.  During.the past week there was entered  at the port of Nelson for export ore,  matte and gold bullion of the aggregate  value of $1-13,018. These exports made up  of 187,2-10 pounds of matte from the Hall  Mines smelter, 1310 tons of ore from the  mines of the Slocan, 113 tons from the  Iron Mask and Cliff mines of liossland,  and 1(12-1.1 ounces of gold bullion from the  Trail smelter. The gold bullion was entered in the customs as valued at $32,489.

McCulloch, city engineer, reports  that good progress is being made with  most of the public works which the corporation has now in hand. Messrs.  Breckenridge & Lund have practically  completed the reservoir, and the flume  from Anderson creek to the reservoir  would have been completed before this  but for the delay in the arrival of material. The chief work upon the flume yet  remaining to be done is the putting in of  the iron piping at the N. & F. S. railway  crossing.  Onslow Newling & Co. will have the  work upon their section of the sewer  system completed next week. Despite the  low price at which this work was undertaken, the contractors are going to  come out all; right, and no attempt  has been made to skimp the work.  H. Hi McDonald has not yet signed  the contract for the construction of  section "B" of the main sewer up Ward  street from Baker to Silicia, but he will  probably do so ou Monday, aud commence  work inimediatel3r.  Work upon the distribution system of  the  waterworks is not progressing very  rapidly owing to the non-arrival of the  valves and hydrants.   These are reported  to be delayed somewhere between lievel-  stoke aud Nelsdu on the Canadian Pacific  railway   system.    The   distribution   system will be  put  in  shape very speedily  after the arrival of the valves and  hydrants. .....'.,  Engineer McCulloch is of the opinion  that the corporation of Nelson has been  peculiarly fortunate in that all the public  works under construction have been undertaken at low figures aud are being  carried out in workmanlike style.  Martin and His Politics.  The story comes from Vancouver that  ���Jos. Martin, while settling down and engaging in law practice, is still politically  inclined. Overtures have been made to  him to lead the local opposition party in  British Columbia, but he has no particular hankering after local politics, preferring the Dominion arena. It is said that  a few years will see him back at Ottawa.  There is a strong feeling at liossland, and  many other points, that when the time  comes for British Columbia to be represented in the cabinet, Martin will be the  choice of the people.  Old Rails for the Crow's Nest Road.  The heavy steel rails ordered from the  Carnegie Steel & Iron Works at Pittsburg, by the Canadian Pacific, and intended in the first instance to be used iu the  construction of the Crow's Nest Pass line,  have been placed in use upon the Ontario  and Quebec division, a line which is noted  for its heavy traffic, and the lighter rails  transferred   to   the    Rocky    mountains.  Not Guilty of Murder.  Mrs. I_uphemia Rabbitt, the Granite  Creek woman charged with the murder  of James Hamilton, was acquitted at  Vernon on Monday. The murdered man  had made improper proposals to Mrs.  Rabbitt and she was very much frightened of him. He was approaching her  again when the fatal shot was fired.  Civil Cases will- Occupy Most of Justice Wal-  kem's Time Next Week.  Justice Walkem will preside at .the fall  assize court,'which will be held'on Monday^ There are but five criminal cases ou  ��� the list, none of which are very serious.  The following have been summoned for  grand jury duty: Frank Fletcher. G. It.  Robson, Thomas Madden, Aaron Kelly,  Patrick" J. Mussel I, Hugh R. Cameron,  Charles Hillyer, Gilbert Stanley, William  J. Wilson, Fred J. Squire, Edward Apple-  whaite. Angus C. Buchanan, Charles W.  West, George'Ritchie, Henry B. Thomson,  and John Hamilton. The cases which  will go before them for consideration are:  llegina vs. Costello���A Rossland case in  which the foreman on the sewer system  is charged with assaulting and beating a  lawyer named Cronyn ,vhile the latter  was engaged in securing evidence for the  coroner's inquest into thedeathiof Young-  clause.  Hegina vs. McPhee���A Kaslo case iu  which McPhee is charged with forgery.  McPhee is charged with having forged  the names of several Slocan men to a petition charging John Keen, the Kaslo recorder, with neglect of duty and abuse of  his office.  Regina vs. Miles���A Nelson case, which  stands as an index to Paddy Miles'latest  courtship adventure. The charge iu this  case is unlawful entry into the Kootenay  Lake hospital.  Megina vs. Scoley���A Nelson case, which  may be described a.s a relic of the war  which existed for some weeks between  the Hall Alines and the Nelson Electirc  Light Company. Scoley is charged with  malicious damage to property.  Regina vs. M,yau--A Vmir case, in which  Ryan, a contractor, is charged with perjury in connection with an alleged loss of  $1800. Ryan received this money to pay  off his men, and on the following day he  announced that he had been robbed. Proceedings of some sort were taken against  him on behalf of the men working for  him. He afterwards, confessed that he  had not been robbed, but that he had hidden the money. The .perjury is based on  some statements made by Ryan before he  confessed to having hidden-the money.  Myan is thought to be a crank.  Labouchere and his Baggage.  Labouchere once arrived at the Prussian  frontier station  of Mislowiez, where the  boundaries of Prussia, Austria and Russia  meet.    Jt  was early in the 'GOs, when Bis-  mark's power had begun to make itself  markedly felt. The custom house officials  were  uncivil, and tossed  the luggage of  Air. Labouchere into a state of wild confusion.     They  found   nothing   duitable,  and   the   traveller    at    last   told    them  that since they had  made havoc of his  things he would trouble them  to change  chaos   into   order.     This    they   refused  to do.    Whereupon   the   annoyed   tourist quietly   said:    "lam  sorry   at your  refusal, fori shall stay iu this town until  you reverse  it.    In  fact,  I shall  take a  house here."   This cool stroke of defiance  had no   effect   whatever,.,and   presently  Mr.   Labouchere   continued:    "Will  you  kindly oblige me with a piece.of paper?"  This request was granted, and the gentleman seated himself and wrote a telegram.  It  was   addressed   to   "Herrn   Minister-.  Praesident von Bismarck, Berlin." and it  ran thus: "I am sorry to say that I cannot dine with you tomorrow, as I am detained here for an indefinite period." This  dispatch Air. Labouchere handed to the  head of the customs house department,  courteously desiriug that it should be forwarded.    Presto!    There   was   ho  more  trouble    about    his     portmanteau,    its  contents   were    most   expeditiously   replaced.  -  THE   NOBLE   FIVE .MEETING.  Tho Shareholders will be Asked to Give   the  Directors Authority to Soak the Mine.  The stockboldersof the Noble Five Consolidated   Alining and   Milling   company  this week received notice that at the an-  ' nual meeting of the coinpan}' held in Spokane on'October (ith, it  was decided that  in view of the fact that the  mine  needs-  funds for the further development that  debenture bonds be issued to tlie amount  of $150.000.    A portion of this  money the  Kootenay stockholders are informed, will  , be required  to liquidate the present indebtedness, and with the balance it is believed that.sufficient development can be  done to put the company on a sound and  dividend paying basis.  As some of the stockholders of the company received no notice of "this meeting  they were of course very much surprised  to learn of the meeting aud of the proceedings thereof. After the meeting has  been held and the company's course decided upon these stockholders have been  taken into the confidence of the directorate. F. J. Hohuan, secretary of the company, after notifyiug them of the above  action, says in his circular letter:  "It is the opinion of those who have made  a personal and thorough examination  that the property owned by the company  contains large bodies of mineral, only  needing the judicious expenditure of  money to make it a success, and while the  results of the past year have not been all  that were anticipated, yet it it believed  that at the end of another year the conditions will be entirely different and satisfactory to the stockholders, in accordance with the resolution passed at the  stockholders' meeting, an extraoidinary  meeting of the stockholders will be held  at the company's office, at Cody, B. C, on  Saturday, October"30fch,at12o'clock noon."  The business which is to come before  this extraordinary meeting of the shareholders at Cody on October .��i0bh, is- announced as follows:1  First���To vote upon an amendment to  the by-laws of said company to be known  as "Article A'TIL," empowering the company at any general or special meeting  called for that purpose to authorize the  borrowing of money, executing promissory notes, debenture bonds, and any-  other evidence of indebtedness as the  obligation of the company, and to pledge  )roperty  of the company  by mort  the  gage or by any other form of security to  pay for money borrowed.  Second���To vote upon a motion authorising the directors of this company to borrow one hundred and fifty thousand dollars, and to issue debenture bonds, or  other evidence of indebtedness, as the obligation of the company therefor, and to  pledge the property of the company by  mortgage, or otherwise, as security for  the payment of the money borrowed.  It is only natural to suppose that such  of the shareholders as are not in the swim  have been doing some tall thinking as  what the effect of such action as that proposed would be. In any case the extraordinary meeting promises to be no tame  affair.   SLOGAN   MINING   NOTES.  St. Barbe's Reply to Fitzstubbs.  NEi-SO.v,.October Mth, 1S97.  To,tiik Editor ok Thi. Thiiu;nk: I regret that anything I have written should  have moved captain Fitzstubbs so much  as bo cause him to abandon his habitual  courtesy, and to forget what actually  happened. I would remind him also of  the old proverb about those who live in  glass houses. Before he casts stones at  iny veracity it would be well for him to  see that his own edifice will withstand a  similar assault. It is a perfectly well  known fact that Mr. W. J. Goepel actually  did the whole of captain Fitzstubb's work  during that gentleman's somewhat frequent and prolonged illnesses. I am. etc..  Ciiaiu.ks St. BaiusI'".  Another Wonderful Increase.  The. extraordinary increase of $255,000  in the traffic receipts of the Canadian Pacific railway, for the week ending September .'30th last.as compared with those  in the corresponding period in .1890, is  eclipsed by that for the week ending the  7th instant. The receipts for last week  were $OOS,000, whilst for the same period  in 1890 they were $377,000, the increase  this year being, therefore, $291,000.  The Fifth Round.  The Hall Alines, Limited, and the Nelson Electric Light Company, Limited, had  a fifth round this week. The round ended  by the Hall Alines, Limited, making a pass  (in the shape of a good-sized check) at the  Nelson'Electric Light Company, Limited,  which was countered. Now all is quiet  on the banks of Cottonwood Smith creek.  New Clerk of Work Appointed.  Edward   Bragg    has    been    appointed  clerk of work on the provincial jail building.    His predecessor did not get on  well  with the men.  Jack Thompson, of Kaslo, has sold all  his Kootenay mining interests to a syndicate represented by David W. Moore and  .). A. Whittier for $35,000. The deal carries Thompson's interests in the Go'ode-  nough and Stranger, near Cody; the  Thursday Fraction, on the east end of the  Payne, the Reciprocity and International  on the west end of the Payne, the Mo Hie  O, near the Idaho and Alamo and the Cas-  trick and Alountain Con, on the south  fork of Carpenter creek.  The Little Phil syndicate have made  the final payment of $5,300 upon the Little  Phil at-Ainsworth. Clarke Wallace  bought the Little Phil a year ago for $20,-  000 and turned it over to the present owners for $27,000. The .payment was made  in Kaslo on Monday.  The Ledge: The Enterprise mine, Ten  Alile, is still closed down, but it is very  evident operations will be pushed there  this winter, with renewed vigor. A bunk-  house for 80 men is almost completed and  other buildings are being erected about  the camp.  Several Four Alile properties are about  to be worked' with largely increased  forces, among them the Vancouver,  Thompson and Fisher Alaiden. it is also  reported the Wakefield will be reopened  at once under Air. Brenner's management.  The Argo Alines, company has brought  suit in the supreme court to determine  the title to tho mineral claims Gladstone  Fraction and Kickers.  Aiessrs. Swan Bros., Alatson & Wright,  locators and owners of the Fairy Queen  mine, on Trout creek, were in New Denver Wednesday, buying provisions for  their camp. They are building a trail  from the Fairy Queen to the head of Slocan lake, a distance of loss than eight  miles, it will be completed in a week or  ten days. Comfortable quarters have  been erected at the mine and work will  be commenced there all winter. Fifty  tons of $80 ore are on the dump waiting  the completion of the trail, when the first  shipment will be made. They have two  and one-half feet of solid galena in the  face of the tunnel.  The Le Roi Smolter at Northport.  NoRTiii'oirr,   October  l-'i.- The  Le  Roi  smelter is  making rapid   progress.    The  two iron stacks over the boiler house were  I raised .Mondav.    The brick chimney from  the furnaces is up 50 feet. A1 number of  teams are hauling in cordwood for the  roaster*. Construction of the long flume  for lhe water supply from Deep creek is  being pushed and the smelter will be  ready to operate in about (i() day��.  LIBERALS   SHOW   GOOD   SENSE.  They   Decide   to   Join   Forces   with   All  who  Want   Good  Government.  The convention  of the Liberals of the  province, which was hold in  New  Westminster, will doubtless have an important  bearing upon the next provincial general  election.    It must be apparenL that the  men  who controlled thu convention had  level heads. They refused,to allow Archer  Martin of Victoria, to sacrifice the cause  of good government to his petty spite for  1'".  C.  Cotton  of  Vancouver.    They also  snubbed J. Al. O'Brien, of the Vancouver  World, for his effort in the same direction.  A   resolution   denouncing' the   Turner  government was carried amid loud cheers.  It would  have been  unanimous but for  one or two dissenting voices in a convention   of   110   delegates.    The   resolution,  which was moved by George Riley of Victoria, seconded by It. AlcCutcheon of Rossland,-read:   "That  the  members of this  convention declare that they are emphatically opposed to the policy of the present  British Columbia government as shown  by the legislation  promoted  by the "government, and by the action of the executive,  and  they  are of the opinion   that  their coutinuance in office is detrimental  to the welfare ofthe province.".  This was followed up with another important resolution moved by John Johnstone of Vancouver, seconded by M. Alac-  pherson, Al. P. P., of Vancouver: "That  in the opinion of this convention it is in  the best interests of the Liberal party to  support in all the constituencies of the  province, such candidates as declare themselves to be fully in accord with the resolution-just passed."' Archer Alartin sought  to have this resolution amended so that  none but straight Liberals would receive  the support of the Liberal organizations,  but iu this he was overruled, and the  Johnson resolution was adopted with but  three dissidents.  THE   CITY'S   INTERESTS   THREATENED.  LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  W. C. AicLean located a mineral claim  across Stanley street this week. In blasting out rock for the Stanley street water'  mai.n. the workmen came upon what  seemed to be a ledge. The rock carried  considerable iron pyrites, and AlcLean  immediately staked it as a mineral claim.  It is difficult to say whether the claim has  even a speculative value. <  The provincial government should insist upon some educational .'standard for  the editors of its organs, it will "make  most residents of the province laugh  when the editor of the Rossland Aliner refers to Colin B. Sword as a dyed-in-the-  wool Tory, .populist, socialise, and anarchist. .''..-  A. M. Beattie is'now nursing the Rose-,  bery townsite boom. The townsite has  been transferred to a syndicate, and it is  announced that all the vagrant industries  of the country will be, rounded up and  located at Rosebery..  The wagon road to the Yrnir mine has  been finished and the men paid off.  in the event of contractor McDonald  declining to sign a contract for the construction of section "B" of the main sewer  up Ward street, from Baker to Silicia  street, the probabilities are that tiie corporation will do the work by day's labor.  There is a difference of $500 betweeu the  McDonald tender and the next lowest.  The first of a series of dances to be given  this winter by the Nelson brass band and  orchestra will take place at tlie fire hall  on next Thursday evening.  in the case of Hong vs. Crease, A. Al.  Johnson this week secured judgment .upon  appeal, owing to thecity'snon-appearance.  It was an .appeal against a conviction  made by magistrate Crease under the  Health By-law. Costs, were given against  the city.  Alike Cooper was arragned before magistrate Crease this morning upon a charge  of stealing a night shirt from Airs. Gilbert's hospital. There have been a number of complaints against Cooper, but the  stealing of the night shirt was the only  specific charge laid against him. lie was  remanded till Alonday.  The case of Alalone v. Crease, an appeal  against a conviction under the fire limits  by-law, was called at the county court  this week. It was set over till the next  sitting. In this action alderman Alalone,  the plaintiff, is endeavoring to quash a  by-law which he, as alderman, assisted in  framing.  Work will probably be commenced next  week upon the steam tug which-Messrs.  Campbell, Elliott ic Hale will build this  winter. The tug will be 80 feet long, .14  feet beam, and 7 feet draught. She will  be fitted with powerful compound engines aud will be superior to any tug upon  inland waters in this province.  D. O. Lewis, of the engineering corps on  the Slocan river railway, says that the  track is laid for a distance of fifteen miles  from Slocan .Junction. Allowing for all  probable delays, he says that the road  should be in running order to Slocan City  within the next MO day--.  The Hall Mines Makes Another  Effort to Secure "Water From Cottonwood Smith Creek.  At J]  o'clock this  forenoon  gold  commissioner Dennis heard an application for'  a water right.   The Hall Alines, Ijimittd,  have applied   for   a   water   right  of 200  inches   from   Cottonwood   Smith   creeki  the water to be diverted at a point, about  300 1'eet.below the electric light company's  dam.    Protests against granting the right  were filed  by the Nelson  Electric.   Light  Company, Limited,and by the corporation  of the city of Nelson.    II. K. CrotwJaile  and .1.  II. Bowes tippeared  for  the Hall  Alines, Limited, John  Elliot for the city  and John Houston for the Nelson Electric  Light company.    The representatives of  the Hall Alines, Limited, contended  that  as the water was  to  be diverted   below  the electric light dam, the rights of the  electric light company would  not be infringed:   that the   Hall  Alines. -Limited,  was   a   great   industrial   enterprise and  should not be hampered in its operations,  and that the water applied for was needed  for  operating  its .plant.    Mr.   Flliot,  on  behalf of the city, maintained that as the  cits' had the right to divert 100 inches of  water from the east fork of Cottonwood  Smith creek, through the purchase of the-  Consumer's Waterworks Company franchise, and besides held an option to purchase the franchise of the Nelson Electric  Light Company, thecity's interests could  only be safeguarded by a refusal to g'flnfc  further  water  rights   from   Cottonwood!  Smith creek.    This protest was objected  to by Air. Bowes, who claimed that it was  not filed iu time, and that he had not bad'  an  opportunity of seeing  it.    Air. Houston claimed  that the electric light company had the right to divert 350 inches of  water from the creek: that there was not  that much flowing in the creek between  midnight aud (i o'clock a. m. during tlie  winter, aud that in  order to get enough  of water to run the electric light plant  the flow of the creek had to be stored during the day.    Were the Hall  Alines/Limited, granted aright, this storing of water  might be objected  to, and continual dis-    ,  putes  would   be   the consequence.    The  electric light company depended entirely  on water to run its plant, and as it  >vas  the first to utilize the water in the creek,  it was fairly entitled to any excess running in the creek, seeing that the  company had more than doubled the capacity  of  .its  plant.     If   the   water   right  was  granted, it would compel the electric light  company to put in steam to operate its  plant for four- months in the year.    Air.  Houston also read the following letter:  fltdviNeK  OK'.'BlCITlSII COLUMBIA.  Puovi.veiAi. Sechetary's Office.  Victoiua, B. C October 1st. 1S95.

JAMES HAKKI1, I'rovincial Secretary..  Mr. Groasdaile protested that the letter  should have no weight, as his company  was not then in existence; that they did  not begin operations until January, 1S90.  Mr. Houston replied that the Hall Mines,  Limited, must have made an application  at that time for a water right or the protest would not have, been made. As a  matter of fact, an application was made  at that time, and the Hall Mines, Limited,  was very much in evidence.  , The gold commissioner adjourned the  hearing until Monday, at 2 o'clock, in order to give Mr. Bowes time to reply to  the protest of Mr. Elliot on behalf of the  city.       .  There are already the following rights  granted from Cottonwood Smith creek:  Nelson Sawmill company, 100 inches: the  Corporation of the City of Nelson, 100  inches: and the Nelson Electric Light  Company, Limited,-'-SoO inches. It is doubt  ful if there are -S50 inches flowing in the  creek during the winter months, and the  granting of further water rights would  only bring about litigation. The letter  from the provincial secretary, quoted  above, goes to show that the government  did not intend to grant further water  rights from the creek, and that decision  was based on good reasons.  Corbln's Big- Bridge is All Rig-lit.  The Red .Mountain railway bridge on  the Columbia river has been tested for  traffic. The bridge was tried by backing  three loaded coal cars and four Hat cars  of stone pushed by the 100-ton engine No.  (i and the 50-ton engine No. 8 over to the  reservation side. The bridge is a composite structure of wood and iron, six  spans in length, and the total distance  across is about '2000 feet. The contract  for construction was let to the San Francisco Bridge Company last January, with  the time limit that it should be ready for  operation June 1st. The high water in  the Columbia came W days earlier than  usual, and the bridge company was  obliged to abandon construction until the  low water this fall, with the bridge about  two thirds completed.  The Minimum Rate, $2.50.  In last week's issue the minimum r'nte  of wages permitted upon corporation  work in the city of Nelson was erroneously stated to be $2 per day. It should  have been stated as being .$2.")0 per day.  The city has always paid $2.50 for labor  upon work conducted by the corporation,  and it was a condition in all contracts for  city work that not less than $2.50 per day  should be paid.  ���f" -'A ' ���" r,  ,-. .��A Jr^i '-  !Cy^&_______^^ 2  THE  TRIBUNE:    NELSON,  B.C., SATURDAY,  OCTOBER 10,   1897.

D. Mann. This charter authorizes the company to build a railway from  .some point near Vancouver to llossland.  It has a greater value than most charters  in as much as the provincial government  '   has hung up a purse ol $1,320,000 for any  company that will  build such a railway  within   a   specified    time.     Aside    from  Messrs.   Mackenzie   aud   Mann  it is  not  made public who are interested in the recent   purchti.se.   As    the    syndicate   announce   their   intention  of   commencing  work first upon the line from Penticton to  the Boundary, they will get into Heinsse's  territory at once.  Whether the new owners of the V. V. & J_. charter will come to  some understanding with Heinze does not  very  much   concern   the   public.   There  were few people who seriously expected  railway completion as  the result of the  building of a short line to the coast.    The  promoters of the V. V. & B. railway have  no doubt satisfied, their ambition in the  sale ot* their charter to the pi'esent owners.   Heinze was playing a deeper game,  but it would have .amounted to the same  thing   in  the end  had he been able to  carry out his  scheme.    He was not looking to sell a charter, but a completed railway.   Since it is desirable, that the railway should be constructed, the province  is fortunate in that the charter has been  acquired by people able to build the road,  or who at least know some people who  can.    If by this new deal F.Aug. Heinze  is counted out of the railway game, there  will be uo occasion for tears on. the  part  of the people of British  Columbia.    His  scheme would have remained incomplete  uutil he had effected a sale  to the Canadian  Pacific   Railway company and  his  success  would have   meant an   ultimate  increased watering of the railway stock,  necessitating  increased  earnings and incidentally increased freightand passenger  charges.   The time check evil  was discussed  at  Monday  afternoon's   session  of the city  council.    The subject came up in connection with the refusal of  VV. C. McLean  &  Co., the  contractors  on the waterworks  distribution  service, to  submit  pay-rolls  to   the council.    The contention  of  the  contractors is that they are able to pay  their own men aud do not wish any interference on the part of the city council.  Instead of putting  in a pay-roll, McLean  &��� Co. requested ithe city  to pay them a  lump sum  as   progress  money  upon  the  work.    This   proposition   the council   refused   to  entertain,  and  the contractors  were instructed to have a pay-roll before  the council at its regular meeting Monday  afternoon   if   they   desire   any   advance  money. In endeavoring to secure fortnightly settlements for the workmen employed  upon municipal work, the council is performing a kindness to the workmen and  imposing no hardship upon the contractors.    There may be many  men  employed  upon such work who have not sufficiently  good credit to carry them along for six  weeks without money. There is no reason  why corporation contractors should not  pay weekly.    The money   is in the bunk  and is available when pay-rolls are submitted. It can scarcely be maintained  ,t liitt the action of the council in requiring  contractors to submitfortnightly pay-rolls  constitutes undue interference on the  part of the council. J11 requiring such the  council is quite within its,rights. The  corporation is responsible for the wages  of every man employed upon city work.  In raking precautions to see that every  man is paid and paid regularly, the  council is following a good rule. The best  cure for the time check evil is the regular  pay day by compulsion. The corporation  of Nelson should adopt this principle'in  the beginning. The weekly pay day may  be contrary to the contractor's code, but  it will be welcomed by the workmen aud  merchants. More: it is justice, and laborers get so little of the article that there  need be no fear ol overcrowding their  stomachs.   It would interest many of the Kootenay  readers of the Vancouver World to know  whet her it has changed its opinion  upon  the question of the necessity of a new redistribution   bill.    In January last, when  everyone thought premier Turner would  be honest enough to bring down a redistribution bill during the session of l<St)S,  The World was very outspoken and insisted that West Kootenay should have  at least four representatives in  the legislature instead  of two.   The  World  was  at this time convinced that there was no  necessity for increasing the membership  of   the   legislature.    It   recognized    that  there were certain districts over-represented  and  it  proposed   to even   things  up  upon a basis of 33 representatives for the  whole   province.     Premier    Turner    has  since shown a tendency to "buck" on the  redistribution   question.   Ho   has/stated  emphatically  that when The World  reported him as promising a redistribution  bill during the session of USDS, it misrepresented him.    The people of the province  have grown accustomed to the spectacle  of premier Turner revising speeches made  in the legislature to suit changing circumstances, and  forcing government organs  to publish them  as correct.    There  was  no novelty, therefore, in premier Turner's  recantation  upon   the question  of redistribution.   There  is, however, still  some  interest in speculating whether the Vancouver   World   will  also flop, and  admit  that when it .said, in .January, 1897, that  West   Kootenay   was   entitled    to    four  members instead of two, that its editor  did not know what he was talking about.  There is something ominous about  this  silence on the part of The World.  "We have to express regret at the ab-  " sence in the speech from  the throne of  " any reference  to  the readjustment  of  " the constituencies, especially those iu  " the interior, and a granting of a fairer  "and more equitable system of represen-  " tation, based upon population, than at  " present prevails.    According to parlia-  '��� nientary custom, the present is the ses-  '��� sion at which such legislation is intro-  " duced. West and North Kootenay, with  " close   upon   20,000   inhabitants���75   per  "cent of whom  are able bodied men���  " should not any longer be done such an  " injustice as the present system imposes  " upon that exceedingly important sec-  " tion of the province.   Before the session  " closes we hope to hear of such action  " being taken as will pave the way at the  " next general election for such an  eh-  " largement of the representation of the  " district in the legislative assembly as  " the greatness of the district, from what-  " ever   point   of  view looked  upon,  de-  ." uiands."   The above was the comment  of   the   Vancouver   World   in February  last, upon the omission of any reference  in the speech from the throne to the question of redistribution.    In a debate upon  the   question   during   the   same session,  premier Turner either promised the members of   the   legislature   that   he  would  bring down a redistribution measure during the session of 185)8, or he deceived them  into  the belief  that  he  would.   He  has  since stated publicly that the latter  was  the case.   The  government organs have  the hardihood in the face of these  facts  to ask the people of the province to continue their support to an administration  which, by its own action, is confessedly  afraid to accord the people ofthe province  a  fair  opportunity  of expressing  themselves at the polls. ^  When the city council disposes of some  of the work it has on hand, it might with  advantage take it|) the subject of education and ascertain whether it would not  be to the advantage of Nelson to secure  control of the city school. In the four  leading cities of the province the control  ofthe public school system is vested in  the municipality. The schools are regulated by boards of education, the members of which are elected by the people.  To meet the expenses of these city schools  the government allows the municipality  $10 per head upon the average attendance  of pupils, as well as the proceeds of the  provincial revenue tax of $3 per head  upon all adult male residents within the  corporation limits. The importance of  having good schools cannot be overestimated. They tire great factors in the upbuilding of cities.    If  Nelson   is  to  have  the ad vantage of good schools steps should  be taken to have the control of the same  vested in the corporation. The educational system of the province is already  too heavy a financial burden upon the  provincial,treasury, and the government  cannot be expected to keep the Nelson  s ;hool up to its growing requirements.  Under the present arrangement the, people of Nelson take very little interest in  school affairs, such interest as shown being chiefly by those who have relatives  whom they wish to install as teachers or  to have retained upon the. teaching staff.  This apathy in educational matters is  largely due to the fact that the trustees  have practically nothing to say in the  matter of school expenditures. The government fixes the salaries of teachers and  doles out a meagre allowance for incidentals. If the control of the Nelson school  was handed over to the people of Nelson,  much better results could be attained.  There are at present some KiO pupils upon  the roll. By looking after tins mat.rer the  school attendance could doubtless be  greatly increased, aud the average attendance kept up to the hlO mark. The government per capita allowance upon this  would amount to $lo00, and the revenue  tax, if looked after sharply, should yield  another $3000. There would therefore be  some $1500 available for school purposes.  This is considerable in excess, of the  amount spent upon the school by the government, and would no doubt be sufficient  to keep the school up to the desired standard for some time. As t.he provincial government is a.nxious to find some way out  of the heavy school expenditures without  sacrificing the educational system of the  province, there is reason to believe that  if requested to do so by the corporation of  Nelson, it would place this city upon the  same footing with respect to educational  affairs as are the cities on the coast.  "Till'] premier was much impressed with  " the necessity for abolishing some of the  " most onerous features ot the prevailing  " laws affecting miners' licenses, and he  " favored the doing away of the license iu  " the case of working miners and employ-  " ees of the mines. He would not make a  " license necessary until a man came to record his claim, but continuously i.here-  " after." The above is an excerpt" from  an interview which premier Turner this  week accorded the government organ in  Rossland. There is a deal of grim humor  in the admission that premier Turner  favors the repeal of the miners' trade tax.  It has taken the press of Kootenay eight  years to convince premier Turner and'his  colleagues that this tax was unjust. The  crusade against this tax was first started  by The Truth, of Donald, in 1888.  It was taken up in turn by the Nfhou  Miner and the Nelson Tiuiit'Xi':, and year  after year they have demanded i ts appeal,  but without' eil'ect. Premier Turner  should not feel hurt if the electors of  Kootenay refuse to believe that he is the  brainy man the government organs make  him out to be. Since it. took the press of  'Kootenay nine years' to convince him  that it was unjust to impose a tax upon a  man for the privilege of working in a  mine, the average elector may be pardoned for fearing that the natural span  of life will not afford .sufficient opportunities to make anything but a lightweight politician out of Hon. J. II. Turner.  Till': Liberal convention "at New Westminster gave a good account of itself.    It  denounced  the Turner  government  and  recorded itself as   being  of  the opinion  that the continuance of such a government  in office  would  be detrimental   to  the general  welfare of the province.    It  did not make the mistake of deciding to  force the issue in the next general election  upon straight Liberal lines.    A more sensible   course   was  adopted.   A platform  will be drafted  by  a. special  committee,  and any candidate who will subscribe-to  the platform will be entitled to the support of the Liberal party.    There need be  no fear but that the platform will be generous enough to enable the Conservative  Oppositionists to fight side by side with  their   Liberal  colleagues.     It  is a   noteworthy circumstance that every mem lier  of the legislature present at the convention   spoke against  the   introduction  of  party   lines.     Events   are   beginning   to  shape well for the cause of good government in British Columbia.  "To revert to politics, he had all along  " the line of his jiresent trip that the  " present government would be hand-  " somely sustained at the coming election.  " Not only in the government districts,  " but in the opposition sections of the  " country as well he had discovered that  " the present government was held in  "high esteem by the public." Premier  Turner expressed this opinion to the people of llossland on Monday, it is- republished so that the people of Kootrnay  may form some opinion of premier Turner's ability at sizing up public opinion.

The shareholders in the Wonderful  Group Mining company had a warm meeting in Spokane Monday evening. The  trouble was occasioned by the comments  of the small stockholders when they  found that there was no money in the  company's treasury and no, ledge in the  company's mine. With respect to the  ledge, the company's manager, E. .J. Field,  told the stockholders that he had been  unable to 'find any ledge.' He ventured  the opinion that a furl her small expenditure might result in its discovery, but  again it might not. Since, the 'Wonderful  Company took the property over, $-.0,133  were realized through the ^ale of float  washed out of the side-hill, and $-10,o")-l.  \verer spoilt in development, mining antl  management. Among the disbursements  is an item ol* $5000 paid to 1_. J. Field for  the mine. This, as well as several items  in connection with the management, is  likely to Cause trouble at an adjourned  meeting of the company, which will be  held on Monday. Octobei 25th. The  Wonderful group is located in the Slocan.  The ground was covered with large quantities of galena float, but ihe ledge was  never found, all hough several companies  have participated in the search.

A Murder Case in Court Near Snake Creel-  Gap, Georgia.  ��� News had reached town that a murder  had been committed near Plainville, a.  . village in a narrow valley near Snake  Creek Gap, Georgia, among the post oak  ridges that break away at the foot of the  Unaka range. Plainville is in the heart  of the moonshine region, and the odor of  sour mash is mingled with the aroma of  reddening chestnut leaves and the nutty  fragrance of falling hickory foliage.  When the writer arrived at Plainville on  the first available train from the city, a  knot of bronzed and bearded mountaineers, hard-faced women and tousle-headed  children had gathered about the vacant  store which had been transformed into a  court of justice. Awaiting the arrival of  the culprit, who had been captured by a  posse about an hour before in the woods,  the blear-eyed old justice of the peace,  who had absorbed enough mountain dew  during hi.s reign to have floated a river  steamer, had improvised a judicial bench.  Two empty whisky barrels had been stood  on end and from one end to the other a  - rough, unplaiued plank had been laid,  which answered for the desk. Behind it,  perched upon a rickety stool, sat his  honor with a quid of tobacco in hisclieek.  A pair of rusty-rimmed spectacles lent an  air of judicial gravity to hi.s face and accentuated the -size of his nose. In front  ol" him reposed in solemn majesty a well-  worn copy of the Code of Georgio, vintage ot '78. and beside it wtis a covet-less  enpv of the Now Testament.  ������We hain't nary Bible, handy." said he  apologetically, "but the Ko'Uospils fulfils  the sperrit o' the law iu the testification  o' witnesses iu criminal cases,'" and he  glanced around with an air of superior  erudition that had a salutary effect upon  tlie crowd.  The solicitor-general, a lean, lanky  lawyer from the county town, had been  summoned to represent the state, and he  paced up and down the creaking floor,  clawing at his locks with his long, bony  fingers. Suddenly there was a stir among  the loitering crowd outside, aud down the  winding path came a number of men tugging at a long rope made of plough lines  tied together. . At the end of the line  staggered a low-browed negro, whose,  ashen face indicated the fear that was in  his heart as he moved toward his doom.  Bringing up the rear of the procession  was a burly specimen of the "Hill Billies,"  the county sheriff, astride a diminutive  mule of mountain breed.  "Ahem," began the court, biting oil' a  fresh chew from an enormous twist and  passing the rest of the twist around among  the crowd, "Mister Bailiff, open court."  A cross-eyed countryman standing near  the desk stepped to the door, and, poking  hi.s head out, yelled:    ���  "O ye'/A .0 yevd The honer'ble justice  court ib' the 'ieben- hundred an' sebenty-  sebent'deesttick is now open!"  "Order.in court, Mr. Bailiff," commanded the justice, and, after a whispered consultation with the solicitor, he seemed to  recognize the presence of the sheriff, who,  within his domain, was an officer of less  magnitude than the constable who did his  bidding.  ' "Mr. Bailiff, 1 see here among us the  high sheriff o' the county, 'an' you'll be  pleased to invite him to a seat on the  bench." The sheriff took a seat on the  end of a 10-gallon keg, when the judge  again proceeded: "Frien's an' feller citizens, ther' is a gent heare f'oni a j'inin  deestrick who is a good scribe an' I. s'pose  there'll be no objection to him actio' as  clerk o" this 'ere court. Hit's not adzaekly  'cordin' to forms, but in e-mergeucies like  this the court claims the right under the  state-hoots, to waive all formalities. Mr.  Bailiff, call the fust witness."  The writer whipped out his scratch pad  and prepared to take the testimony. A  faded woman moved up in front of the  court, and with great gravity of demeanor the justice ordered her to hold up  her right hand. The witness first held up  her left hand, then corrected herself, held  up her right hand for a moment, and  then, to be certain, elevated both palms  to an angle of (30 degrees.  "You do solemnly swear that the evidence that you shall, give touching the  case between the state and the accused  shall be the truth, the whole truth, and  nothing but the truth, so help you God."  rattled off the solicitor-general.  ���"Kiss the Book," said the justice, and  the witness started to pick up the code,  bur, being corrected, she imprinted a  smack upon the coverless copy of the  ���rVGospils."'  ���'What's your name?" asked the justice,  who conducted his own examinations.  "Mahaly .Weeks." answered the woman.  it  miss,   becase  quit   me   three  the do' or on   the out-  don't want no  better answer  you.    Wtis ye  "Miss or missis?"  "W'y,   missis���no,   put  he's   done   an'   gone   an'  months ago an' mo'."  "A miss is as good as a mile," said ,the  justice, grinning ferociously at his own  wit: "put it down missis, mister clerk,  fur she's a missis, 'cordin' to the stat-  choots.    Whar do ye live?"  "W'y 'squire, I'm s'prised at yer axin'  s'ich ti question, w'en���"  . "Don't 'squire' me. I hain't s'posed to  know nothin' w'en I'm per.sidin' in court  'cept'sich things as consarns the law an'  the evidence. Whar do you live Missis  Meeks?"  "I've  bin  a livin'in  the   Pocket, nigh  Snake Creek Gap."  '��� In this county?"  " I ruther think it i-\ sir. What county  is this 'ere anyhow?"  "Don't ye put: yerself to any bother-  niHiit; axin'questions. Missis Meeks, hit's  yo' business'-to answer an' not to ax. Put  it Gordon county, mister clerk. Thisstate,  Missis Meeks?"  "J reckin so. 'Tain't in Alabam', I'm  shoYan' hit's hardly in Tennessee."  ������Don't ye git too pert, nor try to confuse the court with' roundabout answers.  Fust thing ye know ye'll find yerself in  contempt. "War you present when thi<  'ere crime wu* committed?"  , "1 wns."  "Mow fur wtis you f'om the 'otnam  what was kilt?"  '"Bout as fur as f'om here to you."  , '���Tliataiu'ta proper answer. How many ���  foot?"  "Never measured it." -  "Well, you kin  guess, 'bout how many  foot?"  "'Bout ten. foot."  " Wus ye inside  side?"  "Ef ye'll let me tell it jest as hit happened, L can do it. squire, but ye git me  (lustrated in axin'so many questions an'  me nervish already "  "Miosis Meeks, the court  trouble   with  ye. an' ye'd  the question-- what'-;  axed  inside or outside?" <  " I wus inside."  "Could .ye see outside?*'  "My eyes is purty good, an' the do' wus  open."  "What did ye see?"  "I seed MandyJefferies, Jeems.Jefl'eries'  wife.   She wus a-standin'jest outside���"  "Hoi'  up,  thar,  madam.    Answer   the  questions as they're axed ye.    What day  wus that?"  "Day 'fo' yistiddy."  "] mean what day 'o the week?"  "1 furgit.    What is today?"  "Madam, I've  told  ye repeatedly that  I'm  not here  to  answer  questions.    My  business is to ax  the questions an' your'u  is to answer  the questions  as 1  ax'em.  Mister Bailiff, let ther' be order in court.  Put it- down Chuesday, mister clerk."  Aud so the investigation dragged along.  The woman finally managed to tell how  she was sitting just inside of the door of  the cabin on the mountain side talking  with Mrs. Jefferies, whom she was visiting. Mrs. Jefferies had stepped outside  for some purpose, a shot was tired from a  clump of bushes and Mrs. Jefferies dropped to the ground and died in a few minutes.  The witness raised the alarm, a crowd  quickly collected and the finding of an  old wool hat and certain barefoot tracks  under the bushes cast suspicion on the  negro, and he was captured in the woods  not far from the scene of the crime. The  crowd had insisted on stringing him up  where he was found, but sheriff McGinuis,  on his mountain mule had joined the pursuers and he had persuaded them to give  the man a- fair trial, partly by representing to them that he might confess and implicate some other person, and partly by  flourishing in their faces;'a- big cavalry  pistol, nearly two feet long, and with a  bullet as big as a marble in every chamber.  "Missis Meeks," said the court, "war  you 'uns a-drinkiu' any that day?"  "May it please the court," exclaimed  the solicitor, springing to his feet, "that  question is irrelevant."  "L don't see whar no irreverence comes  in, mister solicitor."  "I said irrelevant���not haviug any particular bearing on the case, your honor."  "Mister solicitor, I've be'n holdin' jes-  tice court in this'ere precinc'ever seuce  afore you war bo'n, an' ef any man iu the  state o' Georgy knows better how to get  at these 'ere mount'n folks than I do, I'm  williu' to resign. Missis Meeks, answer  my questiou."  "Well, ef I inns1 say it, I had tuck jest a  leetle teenchy drap, as I allers did Wen I  went to see Mandy Jefferies."  "Yon see, Mr. solicitor," said the justice  with a smile of triumph, "I knowed whar  to'tetch a tender spot, War she a drink-  in' 'otiian, Missis Meeks?"  "No,  I  can't  say  that she   wus.    You  know that she tuck her dram like all good  Baptises, but I never seed her the leas' bit  funny iu all the bo'ned days o' my life."  "War thar a still nigh thar?"  "1 ��� 1 ���well. I won't say thar warn't."  "Go on an*  tell  the truth,  the whole  truth, an'nothin'but  the truth, so  help  you God.    Thar hain't no revenue officers  here present, an' besides this 'ere ain't no  feder'l court au' you won't cryumate yourself."  "Well, then, thar war. Hit's the same  still, you ricollect���"  "No, I don't ricollect nothin'. Who runs  this 'ere still, Missis Meeks?"  "W'y Jeems Jefferies, an'he hired this  'ere nigger to he'p 'im."  "Never miu' 'bout the nigger, we hain't  come to that yit. Did you see anybody  'bout the time the gun fired?"  "I glimpsed a man as he run thoo the  bushes."  "War that the man?" pointing to the  culprit, whose eyes were bulging out with  terror as the lowering faces were turned  upon him.  "Well, I can't sw'ar poz-zy-tively, but  I shall b'lieve to my dyin' day that hit  war him."  "What makes you b'lieve hit war this  'ere pris'ner?"  "Well,1 I smelt sump'n like a nigger  tiio'n ha'f an hour-���"  "Hoi' up thar. I'm not sho' that I kin  'low that to go in. Don't write noth'n  jest yit, mister clerk. Mister Bailiff, cl'ar  the room fo' consultation. Mister solicitor, you an' the clerk an' sheriff kin stay.  Mister bailiff, gyard the pris'ner, an' don't  let him come a-nigh the witnesses. Now,"  he continued, turning .to his advisers,  "the question is ef nose scent an' hearsay  hain't'bout the same in the eyes o'thu  law. AVhatdo you think,.mister solicitoi ?"  "Why, may'it please the court, that is  a mooted question. But I think that in a  case like this, a mere court of inquiry���"  /'I'll have you to remember��� that this  'ere court's mo'than a 'mere* anything,  sir. Hit's one o' the highest try-bunals in  the state. I haiii't never been re-versed  by the S'preme court yit, tin' I'm too old  in the bus'ness to take any resits. What  do you think, Mr. sheriff?"  The sheriff was in favor of admitting  the testimony, because the people of that  section had "powerful keen noses,,an' not  bein' used ter niggers, they could tell one  a long ways off." The clerk, who was in  a hurry to bring the trial to a finish, because of his dispatches sided with the  sheriff, and the crowd was called back  and the evidence of the witness admitted.  After the woman' had concluded her  statement, the prisoner was allowed to  tell his story. To the surprise of all present, he fell upon his knees, and in broken  sentences told the whole story. He said  that the man Jefferies wan ted to put his  wife out of the way and had offered him  $50 and a live-gallon keg of whiskey to do  the deed.  "See what I Col' you?" remarked the  sheriff, turning to the crowd. "I knowed  thar war sump'n behind all this."  There was a sudden rush tor the prisoner  wich yells of "Hang him! ,Burn him!  String'him up to the highest tree tin' then  let's ketch Jeffries!"  A1 stalwart mountaineer, grabbed the  end of the rope which was still fastened  about the negro's neck, and a dozen others  laid hold of it.  "Drap it!" sheriff McGiunis had placed  himself in the doorway between the prisoner and the angry mob, and from beneath the tails of his coat he had drawn  that long revolver. "Drap it, I say, or  I'll drap the last one  o' ye in yer tracks!"  The rope dropped from the grasp of rhe  mountaineers and the crowd fell back.  ,  "Now, feller citer/.ens, you all know me.  This'ere pris'ner's guilty as hell, but he's  under the pertection o' the law. He's my  pris'ner an' I'm 'sponsible fur his safe  keepin'. The fust man that tetches 'im  will git a bullet thoo his liver!  "Williams," said he. turning to the  cross-eyed constable, "keep an eye on that  'ere 'omau. They're allers a-traipsin'  aroun' f'om post to piller, an' ten to one  she can't be foun' when she's wanted by  the gran' jury. Now, squire, the easies'  way 's the be.s' way. Le's git this 'ere  nigger out'n the mount'us as quick as possible. The 'larm's spread, an' by night  every hellian o' them Hill- Billies will be  lopin' down here, an' we'll have trouble,  sho'. Vou hitch up yo' buggy an" we'll  drive thoo the country with "im."  "I b'lieve you're right," said the justice,  having parted with a good deal of his  judicial dignity since the outbreak. "But  tlie commitment's not made out yit, tin'  I can't git one cent o' costs less'n I have  the papers drawed up in reg'lar order."  "This gent '11 write out the commitment while you're a-gettin' ready. Here's  the form iu the back o' the code. Hurry  up, now, fur we hain't no time to lose."  "One ininit. Williams, hitch up the  mare while 1 speak to this gent in privit,"  replied the 'squire, taking the writer to  one side near the rear of the building.  "See here," said he, fishing out a half-  gallon jug from beneath the floor, "have  sump'n. Don't drink? 'You' needn't be  askeered o' this stuff, fur hit never saw a  collector's license. Hit's the pyore truck.  What I wanted to say to ye wus, that I'm  one o' the best known jestices in the no'th  o'Georgy, an' ef you'll say a leetle sump'n  'bout my dignity an' fairness, an' all that,  when you go to write it up, hit'll not do  you no ha'm an'll tickle my frien's all over  the county."- ;  The writer went back to the front of  the building, where the.sheriff was waiting.      .-..-...:...           '"Squire," said he, "I want to see this  'ere gent jest a ininit. Hoi' onto this rope  while I juggle with 'im a hit," and taking  the newspaper man by the arm lie led him  out into the bushes, and drawing a long  quart bottle from his hip pocket, drew  the corncob stopper and held it out toward the wilom clerk. "Don't drink?  I'm s'prised. Thought all you : fellers  drunk all ye could git. But what I wanted  to say to ye.is this. I'm one of the oldest  and best known sheriff's in upper Georgy,  an' eny little thing that ye mought put in  while ye're writin'this 'ere bus'ness up  will do my frien's good. You see hit wus  me that pervented the lynchin' an' r'ally  brought out the confession f'om that 'ere  nigger."  As the reporter hurried away to the little station to catch a freight train, he  found standing near the shanty the solicitor-general.  "See here, old man," said he, "I brought  along a little good whisky for a case of  emergency. Won't you join me in a nip?  No, well, I'll drink for both of us. By the  way, any little thing that you might say  about my knowledge of criminal law as  displayed in the management of this caso  will please my constituents. I never want  to appear as if parading my position, but  all such nice little notices help, you know."  About that time the freight train rolled  in, and the cross-eyed constable came puffing down to the station, but was too late  to put iu his plea.  The negro is still in jail, and his case  has been tried twice in the superior court,  and is now hauging in the supreme court  court for the second time. Jefferies skipped out and took with him the grass  widow, Mrs. Meeks, who was the chief  witness, and it is supposed that they are  living somewhere up in the copper mine  regions around Ducktown, Tennessee.  The murder occurred just three years  ago. The old justice was defeated in the  last election by a Populist candidate, and  has gone to preaching the good old Hardshell faith. Sheriff McGinuis was killed  by an escaping prisoner. The solicitor-  general is a' member of the legislature,  and the cross-eyed bailiff is running a  moonshine still up among the Unakas,  and there is a joke current to the effect  that his cross eyes enable him to keep one  eye on the mountain and the other on the  valley, so that he manages to elude the  revenue officers on every occasion.  THE   SAME   OLD   STORY.  Ac-  The  Canadian  Pacific   Railway Company  cused of Bamboozling Laborers.  The Canadian Pacific B-iilway Uouipuny  has f,ot a strike on its hands in connection with the building of the Crow's Nest  railway.' During the last week between  80 and 100 Canadians arrived at Godfrey's  camp, situated about 15 miles above Coal  creek in East Kootenay. They came out  from theeast ou an agreement to work  for .$45 a month, to be charged Jp:i50-a  week for board, and to have their railway,  passages out free.  The Fort Steele Prospector says that  these Canadians found that by some  counting-house manipulation a. month  wtis to be made up of '30 working  clays, and as, during the -'30 days in a calendar month there are four Sundays on  which no work would be done, the working month was to cover a period of .'31  days, the four additional days to make up  for the Sundays. They nl-o found that  they were to be charged $130 for transportation, the amount to be deducted off  their first; earnings. The board they were  to get for $3.50, had when they reached  Godfrey's camp risen to $5 per week.  .When the Canadians found how they  were to be treated, they held a meeting  to take the situation' inco consideration.  It was shown that a direct breach of  agreement was contemplated by the railway authorities. To begin work on the  terms proposed, would mean that at the  end of the first month they would still be  $5 in debt to the company.  The agreement respecting transportation, wages and board are in writiug, and  a resolution was passed refusing to submit to the injustice that was proposed to  be inflicted, to return east and take legal  action against the company for breach of  contract. They notified the officials of  the company on the ground, aud the next  morning about sixty of them started to  tramp back to the end of the track to  McLeod. None of them went to work.  A gang of Italians were put to work in  the places of the Canadians.  In,connection with this trouble between  the railway company aud its Canadian  navvies, it is worth remembering that at  the present time the people of Canada are  paying for the construction of a railway  which, when completed, will be handed  over to the Canadian Pacific Railway  company as a gifr. The railway company  which is to receive this finished railway  is not willing that the Canadian taxpayer  shall have a chance i'or employment in its  construction. They are brought out from  the east under agreement. When they  arrive on the ground the railway company cancels their agreements. They refuse to work under less favorable terms,  and ti gang of Italians take their places.  There is evidently a chance here I'or Laurie r's cabinet to show that there is some-  thin n in their professed friendship for  Canadian laborers. When the work was  first started the Liberal press announced  that the benefits of actual construction  would be reserved for Canadians. Becent  events do not bear out this assurance.  THE   LIBERAL   PLATFORM.  It  Demands the Cure of Many Evils Which  the Present Opposition Fought For.  The Vancouver World secured a scoop  on all the papers of the province last  week in publishing the first account of  the platform of the Liberal party in this  province. The price paid would . have  staggered most newspaper managements,  but it did hot phase that of the World.  To secure his scoop .J. C. McLagan violated his pledge and sacrificed the respect  of every newspaper man in the province.  The summary of the platform which cost  J. C. McLagan so much is as follows:  Briefly stated it may be said that the  government of Hon. Mr. Turner is condemned; that a redistribution act, based  upon fair lines to all sections of the province, is demanded; the ownership and  control of railways by the government is  approved, aud the policy heretofore in  force of aiding railways by land and cash  subsidies condemned; the laud being the  privilege of the people should be given  only to those who are to be bona fide settlers; the Torrens system of registration  of titles is urged: the abolition of  the so-called mortgage tax is demanded; the practice of ministers of the  crown, allowing their names to appear  as promoters of mining or other schemes,  is condemned: a reformation in the civil  service is required; the manner in which  the expenditures on roads and bridges is  made has to be changed, or the law relating thereto enforced: timber limits  should be sold to the highest bidder, and  only to be offered for sale, excepting when  actually required for manufacturing purposes: a forestry preservation and restoration policy to be adopted; several royal  commissions to be appointed to investigate and report into the manner in which  the land laws of the province are administered : such legislation to be introduced  as will compel owners of large areas to  either cultivate their holdings, or allow  them to be sold tit a fair valuation; the  raising of several issues as between the  Island of Vancouver and the Mainland is  condemr'd; coal, as well as other mines,  to pay loyalties: the school system tocon-  tinue to be administered on non-sectarian  1 i n es. _   Pumped the Baby Full.  Wiarton Echo: Mrs. George llu th man,  of Beaver Falls, heard a peculiar noise on  the back porch of her residence. She  found her two sons, one aged seven and  the other a year old, in a corner. The  babe was on his back. The elder brother  had inserted the tube of a bicycle pump  in the baby's mouth and was filling him  full of wind as fast a.s he could work the  pump handle. The infant was unconscious  and its little stomach was inflated like a  balloon. The mother pulled the tube  from the child's mouth, and the air followed with a sharp sound like the exhaust  of an air brake on a railway train. The  baby recovered consciousness.

Campbell, malinger of th�� Vancouver Hardware Company, was in the  city this week-making arrangements I'or  the opening of a hardware store in Nelson.  His company has secured premises in the  Mara block and will open a stock of hardware next week.  The owners of the.Center Star and Iron  .Mask mines have found it; impossible to  settle amicably the t|UH��tion nf ownership  of a ledg'; upon which -hot li .were doing  development work. Thu CVntm- Sr.ar was  located under i lit; old act, which iin-mir.-  ted the following nf lead- l.icyond |.hc.Mde  lines of tin-flaiiu. Th" C-'in^r Star company chiim t Im a p"\' nl" i hi- li'.-ni in dispute  is oil t/huii- ground; mid that t Iw.reforu  they are oinir.led to it. The ca.su will  come up on Tuesday next.  The people, of Ka-ln arc talking of organizing a board of t.ittde. In i-evident  that they have come in the conclusion  that it is cheaper and more satisfactory  to organise a concern of ilieirnwi] than to  count upon stealing one from their  neighbors.  A. S. Harwell returned to the city last  week. He has read the works of the  three local historians and says that they  wrong. Far well keeps a diary himself,  and lie threatens than if this history epidemic is imr. abated lie will try a hand  himself.  \V. A.  Macdonald, Q. C, will  conduct  ��� the cases for the crown at the assi/.e court  next week.  M P. Davis, Q. C, tlie Vancouver lawyer and politician is in the city on business connected with the approaching  assize.  li. 111. Lemon and (J. !_. Sealey had their  somewhat complicated accounts adjusted  by judge Form on Thursday. The tangle  was the result of the two men's association with each other since December 81st,  IS'.Ki. - R. E. Lemon sued C. K. Sealey ior  ��� $217, against which Sealey entered a  counter claim of over $400 for commissions  upon collections and the sale of mineral  claims. The evidence of the men was  directly contradictory as to their agreement with each other, and the taking of  the evidence occupied the greater part of  the day. The court allowed Lemon $117  on his claim and dismissed Sealey's counter  claim for commissions. YV. Galliher appeared for the plaintiff, and W. A. Macdonald, Q. C, for the defendant.  The wagon road between New Denver  and Three Forks will be finished this  week. Its cost is about $1,800 more than  the funds collected, and the government  has been asked to contribute $1,000 more  in order to help out the citizens who have  beeu instrumental in pushing the work to  completion.  At a special meeting of the shareholders  of the British Columbia Southern Railway company, held at Montreal, the following were elected directors for the ensuing year: Sir W. C. Van Home, T. G.  Shaughnessy, 11. 13. Angus and William  Hanson, all of Montreal; Sir George Kirkpatrick and I_. B. Osier, Toronto; J. A.  Gemmill, Ottawa: Harry Abbott, Vancouver, and Woi. Whyte, Winnipeg. It is  under this company's charter that the  Canadian Pacific Railway company is  building the Crow's Nesfc railway.  A. C. Buchanan this week withdrew  from the firm of Buchanan & Wilson, carrying on business in this city. The business will for the future be carried on by  C. J. Wilson, of the old firm, and J. A.  Kirkpatrick. Mr. Buchanan retains his  business at Erie on the North Fork. He  will take a holiday trip to Nova Scotia  for the winter, returning to Erie iu the  spring.  At a meeting of the police commissioners held on Thursday chief of police  Woolverton was dismissed from ollice. A.  F. McKinnon was appointed acting chief.  The Kamloops Standard advocates the  relinquishing by the supreme court of  this province of its right to grant bills of  divorce. Chief justice Davie did much  the same thing two years ago, but the  legislature ignored him completely. If  chief justice Davie could succeed iu this  he would be serving his church and not  the people of this province who have  already been divorced, or those who  may desire to be divorced. There is no  mistaking his purpose in this issue.  Sir William Van Home and his party  arrived in Nelson Thursday evening.  There was no public banquet and no public speeches, and for this reason the merchants of the city were not called upon  for the sake of politeness to say things  they did not mean. Sir William Van  Home is making his annual trip over the  Canadian Pacific railway system. The  construction work upon the Crow's Nest  railway accounts for his presence in these  parts. He was not interviewed, but it is  safe to say (.hat he has reason to change  the opinion which he ventured some years  ago, when he said that the Columbia ��fc  Kootentiy branch line ran from nowhere  to nowhere.  Dr. W. J. Quinlait litis opened a dental  office in the Clements tV_ Hillyer block.  lie will retain this office until the new  building at the corner of Baker and Ward  streets is completed.  Miss Maggie Tweedy, of the Hon Ton  restaurant, holds the local waitress* record  for persistent sleeping.
