Has   a    Mineral   Output    of  Upwards   ol   One  Million,  Dollars,,   Every    Monlh  '  In   The   Year  TWO   DOLLAES A YEAR.  THE    DUNDEE   LAND   DISPUTE.  Tlie������'SeriiH'ri Administration '. Said to Have  Granted a Petition of ,'RJBht.  The provincial government this; week  issued a fiat granting a petition ot: right,  in order that tiie claim ol* Charles Dundee, to tlie possession oi' the railway addition to tiie city of Rosshind, may be determined by the courts. Tlie land in dispute is at present held by the Nelson &  Fort'Sheppard Hallway Company, and it  may safely be predicted that it will furnish I lie incentive for one of the gieatesb  legal fights ever witnessed in'thisprnvince.  The manner in which the late government curried out the provisions of the  Nelson ic Fort Sheppard Railway Company's subsidy - act. was the cause of  much complaint throughout West Kootenay, and it is quite possible that the example of Dundee, in attacking the railway company's crown grant, will be followed by others now that the affairs of  the province are in the hands of men who  have ears for other requests than those  advanced by wealthy railway corpora-;  tions.  The Dundee claim for the land in (piestion would have come to trial nearly two  years ago but for the fact that attorney-  general Eberts refused to consent to a  fiat for a petition of right. During the  last session of the legislature a return  was ordered for the publication of all tho  correspondence in connection with the  the claim, when some rather interesting  disclosures were made. It was shown  that although there was supposedly a reserve over all the land in the vicinity of  Rossland, the assistant land commissioner  at Nelson issued a pre-emption record ro  Charles Dundee for a pre-emption adjoining the original pre-emption mi the <dtcof  Rossland. That when the lines of the  first and second pre-emptions wore found  to conflict, he cancelled the first record  I'or the subsequent pre-emption, issued a  second record for practically the same  ground, and in turn cancelled the second  record and issued a third. Tlie knowledge  of the pre-emption by Dundee of land  known to be within the limits of the  ai on reserved for railway purposes, was  brought to the attention of the surveyor-  general in .January, ISU I. aud it was the  subject of correspondence between the  government agent at Nelson and the  lands and works .department in Juno, 180!.  when the department was informed that  Dundee was the holder of a pre-emption  record for the land.  Here the matter rested for two years  until after the issuance of a crown grant  to the lull way fcuinjj.ii.-y, fur a tract of  land embracing the land held by Dundee.  The next reference1 to the matter was a  letter from the railway company's solicitors iu May, I.S90, in which they alleged  that the Dundee pre-emption was invalid,  and requested the government to cancel  Dundee's record for the same, as they  said the railway company did not wish to  come; into direct conflict with Dundee  unless the same was unavoidable. Four  days later the railway company's solicitors were notified by tlie.deputy commissioner of lands and works that instructions had been issued to cancel the Dundee  record, and within seven days from the  date of tlie railway solicitor's letter in  Victoria, the assistant commissioner at  Nelson had ,'cancelled' Dundee's record  without allowing him to be heard,  The petition of right which was submitted to the government on behalf of  Charles Dundee in April. 1S97, and refused  a hearing, set out that in IS03, Dundee,  in accordance with the provisions of the  land act, pre-empted out) acres of .land, at  present embraced in the city of Rossland,  and adjoining tlie original pre-emption of  Ross Thompson; and that in August, 1SD3,  he received a pre-emption record for the  same. In the following year, when the  .survey was made of the Jloss Thompson  pre-emption, it was found that the boundaries of the Thompson pre-emption conflicted with those of the Dundee preemption. Then, it was submitted, at the  suggestion aud with the approval of the  assistant commissioner of lands and works  for West Kootenay, Dundee abandoned  his pre-emption record and received a  new record for 1.00 acres of laud in which  the line of the Thompson pre-emption was  accepted as one of the boundaries. That  when Dundee found that the second preemption record called for but 100 acres of  land instead of 320, the amount which he  originally staked, he again, with the consent and .approval of the assistant commissioner, surrendered his record and received a third one calling for 320 acres.  Tlie first record of Dundee's was dated  August Kith, IS03, and the third on April  19th, IS9-I, and from the date of the first  record up till the summary cancellation  of the third record on May 19th, IS90,  Dundee remained in actual possession of  the land, and complied with all the provisions of the land act.  That with respect to the prior reserve  placed upon tlie land pursuant to section  2 of the Nelson ic Fort Sheppard Railway  Subsidy Act of 3892, that the reservation  operated from the date upon which the  railway company filed certain plans, to  the satisfaction of the executive, and deposited $25,000 as security for tho due  construction of the railway. That no  notice was given to the assistant commissioner for West Kootenay that these conditions precedent to the reserve had been  complied with by the railway company,  and that the reserve was operative, nor  was any .such notice given to Dundee,  alf hough the land pre-empted by Dundee  was included in the area to be reserved.  That Dundee at the time ol making the  pre-emption had no knowledge of the reserve.  That  on  March  Sth,   1895, the government issued a crown grant to  the Nelson  & Fort Sheppard Railway Company for  50,200 acres of land, which covered the 320  acres for which Dundee nt. that time held  a pre-emption recoid, and .of which land  he had been in possession for about two  years.  That ou May 19th.. l<S9(i, Dundee received notice that his pre-emption record  to the land had been cancelled, which  notice likewise contained the first intimation he had received that the Jand had  been reserved or otherwise dealt with by  the government. And l hat iu the belief  that he was lawfully entitled to.the same  under his pre-emption record he had occupied   and   improved    (ho   land   and   paid  taxes Mp'Ul ir.  That before any legal canculiation of  Dundee's pre-eilipi ion record could take  place, Dundee had a right lo lie heard before i he chief eomiuKsioner of lands and  works, antl that as he was not given that  right that the alleged cancellation was  illegal and invalid. It is also submitted  that after the issuance of the crown grant  to the railway company in March,1805,  for a tract of land covering the Dundee  pre-emption, the crown' had no further  interest in the said pre-empted land, and  that therefore no officials acting on behalf  of the crown had any legal right to cancel  the Dundee pre-emption record, [t was  also contended that at the time thecrown  grant was issued to the railway company  the Dundee pre-emption was valid, and  therefore could not be conveyed to the  railway company. '"  The prayer oi" Dundee's petition was  that his pre-emption be declared valid, and  that upon further complying with llie  provisions of the land act he be entitled  to complete purchase and receive a crown  grant. Also that it be declared that the  crown grant of the railway company, so  far as it covers his pre-emption, was issued in error and should be cancelled.  Iu IN00, while a private member of the  legislature. Hon. J. Fred Jlunie championed the cause af Dundee and urged his  claim for justice in a letter to the chief  commissioner of lands and works, and it  is not unreasonable to suppose that he  has been instrumental in giving Dundee a  chance to jiresent his case iu the courts.  Midway's Advantages, for .Criminal '.Trials.  Judge Spinks. ofthe County Courb''is  receiving some adverse criticism in connection with the escape of a man named  McMillan who was charged with assaulting a Houndary Creek man. McMillan  was committed for trial by a magistrate  and admitted to bail in the sum of $3,000.  The accused then went to Vernon, and  appearing before .Judge Spinks elected  speedy trial, when the bail was reduced  to $200, pending tlie trial of the case,  which came off last week at Midway.  McMillan attended the trial, and listened  to the strong case which the crown put  up against him. The crown, case was  closed at 12.30 noon, and an adjournment  was taken for lunch till 2.15 p. in. When  the court sat again the prisoner was not  , to be found, lie had remained in Midway  until about 2 o'clock, when he walked  through the Lancashire house, and jumping over the back fence. landed in the  United States. .Judge Spinks then ordered the $200 bail escheated and the case  ended.   British Columbia Shares in London.  The settlement in mining shares on the  20th ult. again showed several losses in  British Columbia shares, only five concerns showing gains, while declines occurred in many cases. The following  were tlie advances or losses : Advances:  Hall Mines, 1-8: Invicta, 3d: Lillooet, Fra.-  ser River & Cariboo Goldfields, 1-10: Queen  Bess Proprietary, 1-10: Whitewater, 3-I(i.

P. R. engineer,  has lately  returned   from   an   extensive  visit  to  the  country  in   the . vicinity of  Albert Canyon.    In his investigation Mr.  Walkem' found that to bniid a railway  from thereto the Waverly and Tangier  mines would be impracticable, on account  of the large number of snowslides in that  section. For instance, it would cost in  the neighborhood of $300,000 per mile for  tlie 2-"J miles of the distance. With some  engineering difficulties, which, however,  may be overcome, a railway could be car-'  ried from the mines towards the Columbia river. L'ntil this is done it appears as  if no great quantity of ore would be  shipped from the mines mentioned.  Bad Month for Insurance Companies.  The month of September was au exceptionally bad one for the fire insurance  companies, and has brought the total  losses for the year away above the losses  for the same period last year. The conflagration at New Westminster was in a  great measure, although not entirely, responsible for this. The insurance companies lost $1,000,000 by that disaster.  The total loss by fire during September  wiit $2,811,300 more than in September of  1897, while the insurance loss was $885,000  greater. For the year the total loss was  $2,280,0*00 greater than last year, and the  insurance loss was $1,200,880 more.  Kamloops Ore Goes to Swansea.  The Ilala, which is chartered to load  salmon at Steveston, will leave shortly  for Liverpool. She will also' take on  about 50 tons of ore from the Iron Mask  mine at Kamloops, which is being scut to  Swansea to be treated.  YMIR   MINING   NOTES:  On the Dumas, situated at the head of  Wild Horse creek, the tunnel is in 150 feet.  In crosscut ting, a vein of coucentiating  ore ten feet wide was encountered. The  assays in gold went $30 to $10 to ihe ton  and also fair values in silver and lead.  Frank Crow has taken a contract to  continue the sinking of the shaft on the  Hidden Treasure on Jubilee mountain.  This mine adjoins the Jubilee. 11 assays  at the bottom of the shaft $-11.20 gold and  $13.80 silver. Work will be continued all  winter.  On the Bullion group of three claim-1, a  mile and a hail" up Quart/, creek development work is' progressing. A number of  ledges run across the claim-1, each of  which has been uncovered at different  points. In tlie 115-foot shaft the rock  runs from $15 lo $20 per ton. Two shifts  of men are now at work.  John Bergman, who is associated with  John Lindblade and John Turner in the  Summit mine, says that they have just-  completed a 200-foot crosscut tunnel and  tapped the ledge at a depth of ISO'feet.  Mr. Bergman brought down some fine  looking samples of ore, which he is taking  with hi in to have assayed. They have  crosscut the vein seven feet and have not  reached the footwall yet.  On the Center Star, situated about half  a mile from Vmir, the shaft is now down  about 37 feet. At the 20 foot level a vein  of porphyry was struck and going through  it good shipping ore was encountered the  full width of the shaft which assays high  in gold.    He Terrifies the Witnesses.  Public attention is being called in England to the growing bad temper of lord  chief justice .Russell. Ife is charged with  treating juries roughly and with impatience, and with flinging such fierce  look* aud trenchant words when angered,  which is often, that nervous witnesses are  terrified, and. even practiced advocates  disconcerted. Moreover, it is alleged that  there has been no man who has ever sat  on the bench who can put so much indignation and passionate anger in his  gaze. It is pointed out to lord Russell  that a little more control of his temper  would go far to enable him to retain his  remarkable popularity, and that of all  men in the l'nited Kingdom, the lord  chief justice of tiie realm should *how  patience, absence of temper, aud deliberation in speech, and even in looks.  Division of the Prize Money.  The latest computation of the prize  money earned by the officers and sailors  of the United States navy places the  amount at $3,178,-100. The battle of Manila was worth $178,400 to Dewey's squadron, but the Cuban blockade was far  more profitable, Sampson's ships earning  $3,000,000 in prize money.  The amounts due each officer are :  MUNICIPAL   MATTERS.  Itear Admiral Sampson  Hour Admiral IJuwey.'..  Rear Admiral Schley...  Captains ('lark, Cook  Jfivnns, Waiiiwrijjhl'.'  about .'.

Ibis expected that when further  depth has been attained this property  will be shown to be one of the most valuable in the province.  To Even Up Preachers' Salaries.  A Detroit clergyman has proposed a  novel plan to level up the salaries of clergymen. It provides for the pooling of  receipts so that no man shall receive more  than another until each receives the minimum of. say, $1,000 a year. .The working  out of such a plan would be a practical  way of " bearing one another's burdens,"  and a fine example of fraternity and cooperation.   Cariboo Hydraulie's Second Cleanup.  .Last week there arrived at Ashcroft  $30,000 in gold from the Cariboo Hydraulic  Mining Company's properties on the  South Fork of the Quesnelle. This sum  is the result of the recent cleanup, and  brings the total of this season's results to  $100,000. There is to be yet another cleanup tills fall before shutting down for the  winteri   Vancouver Group Ore Samples High. ,  The sampling of one car of ore from the  Vancouver group near Silverton gave an  average of 302 ounces silver to the ton.  This gives the silver contents of the ore a  value of $197, with tlie lead values to be  added:'' A. few .carload .shipments of ore  of this class should make tho Vancouver  group famous.  Satisfactory Cleanup at the Porn.  Major     Bennett   announces    that  t i 1 c  cleanup at the Fern mine on Octcber 5ci 1  amounted to close upon $10,000. There  was saved in the mill $0,050 in .'-'���". days'  run, which with a car of shipping ore and  tho concentrates brought the total up to  $0,050.  Tho Price for the Slocan Boy.  The price which the London and British  Columbia Goldfields will pay  for the Slocan .'Boy is said in London to be .CI0,000.  At the meeting of the city council on  Monday afternoon it was decided to comply with the request of the residents on  the Mall .Mines road for a sewer from  Stanley'street to a point opposite the  residence of G. A. Hunter, provided the  sewer rate for the year be paid in advance.  It was also decided to lay a three plank'  sidewalk on the south side of llobson  street, between Stanley street and .Falls  street, on the south, side of Houston  street between Stanley and Ward street,  and on the north side of Water street between Park and Cedar streets.  At Wed'nesdav afternoon's session Dr.  J_. C. Arthur, Ai' II. Clements and F. J.  Squire appeared before the council for the  purpose of securing a plot of ground in  the cemetery for an Odd Fellows burial  ground. The council decided that churches  and societies be required to pay $150 per  acre for the ground, one-fourth cash and  the balance spread over three years with  interest at the rate of 5 per cent. The  price for single graves has fixed at S2 and  cemetery lots at $-1. The fee to be charged  for each burial was fixed at $1 and the  charge, for digging the grave $5.  Scheme to Aid a Public, Llbrury.  The members of the Nelson branch of  tho National Council of Women, iu their  efforts to raise funds for a public library  and reading room, are discussing the advisability of making arrangements with  Miss Livingstone for the delivering of a  course of lectures on cooking. Miss Livingstone has been peculiarly successful in  her lecturing in the cities on the.coast,  and as she makes very liberal terms for  engagements connected with public enterprises, it has occurred to the members of  the local council, that if sufficient, hiteresn  could be worked up in the matter, the  women of Nelson could have the advantage of attending a course of Miss Livingstone's lectures, and a considerable sum  could be raised for library .purposes.  There are ten lectures in the course, and  it is proposed that a charge of $3 be made  for the full course, or fifty cents for a single lecture. The ladies have secured the  use of the lecture room of the Presbyterian church, so that in the event of making arrangements for a course of lectures  in November, all the receipts over and  above the charges in connection with Miss-  Livingstone's services, would be available  for library purposes. 11 is suggested that  ali who desire to attend such a course of  lectures should send in their ��� names to  Airs. Day, of the local council. A. meeting  of the council will bo held on Saturday  i_'t_r:ioon. October 20r.h. when matters  connected with the library and cooking j  lectures will be fully discussed.  What the Foreigners Missed.  When the American flag was raised in  Manilla, the Kngiish admiral saluted with  a national salute, but tlie French, German and Japanese commanders there did  not. waiting first for instructions from  their respective governments. Admiral  .Dewey noticed it, and the story at runs  that he at once signalled, "Send for  fresh meat." The signal was immediately  auswered by the foreign fleets, and it was  some moments before the Germans,French  and Japanese found that the signal was  to the English only. They were very  angry when they found their mistake,  and sorry they did not salute the Hag, as  they were still living on buffalo meat,  while the Fuglish were enjoying mutton  and fresh beef. The English commodore  sent over to thank admiral Dewey I'or his  kindness and say he thought he was imposing on him. Dewey replied: "Oh,  no!" that he had enough fresh meat in  sight to last him ten months, and was  very glad to get rid of some of it.  The Big- Saw-Off Completed.  Twenty-one Ontario election petitions  and cross-petitions were dismissed. by-  Judges Osier and Maclennan on Saturday.  In only one case, Kast .Middlesex, did the  respondent ask for costs, and these were  allowed by the court. All the other cases  were dismissed without costs. The parties broke almost even, as eleven Conservatives and ten Liberals were allowed to  remain undisturbed in their seats. The  constituencies and their political complexion are as follows: Liberals,-South  Monck, Fast 1 fastings. West Kent, Well-  aud, Center Bruce, South Wentworth,  North Lanark. Kast Algoma. Conservatives���West Hamilton. Kast Hamilton,  I'rinee I'M ward, West Durham., Kast Middlesex, West Hastings, Dundas, Lincoln,  Frontenac, South Waterloo, Addington.  Clabon Gets 36,750.  Judge Walkem gave his judgment on  Thursday on the finding of the jury which  tried in the supreme court some two  weeks ago the Clabon-Scott action. The  judgment was that the plaintiff, Clabon,  ho paid the value of the 25.000 shares at  the time of the trial, vi/.., -7 cents, or a  total of $0750, and costs of the action  Tliis was based on the fact that the jury  found defendant had agreed to give plaintiff half his interest received. That the  shares had been pooled without plaintiff's  sanction, and that tho shares were worth  27 cents at the time of the action.  Good Hews from the Jumbo.  On the Jumbo at Hossland the king tunnel on the second level, which he has been  driving for months past, has at last got  into the s<ime ore body that was encountered in the upper tunnel, and of which  there is ��uch good indication iu the immense croppings on the surface. This  proves the ore body for a depth of "200  feet below the upper tunnel.    The middle  tunnel has been driven' in a distance of  700 feet, and at a depth of about 350 feet  from the surface the ore body has been  encountered. Here, a.s in the upper tunnel, the miners passed through about 25  or 30 feet of black rock that was mixed  with iron. Just now they have commenced to get into the shipping ore. It  is quartz or silicious ore that carries gold  and silver.   ���  FISH! CREEK   MINING   NOTES.  THE   POLITICAL   SITUATION.  Beer Bros., of the Beatrice mine, have  advertised i'or bids on a contract to build  a trail' to the Beatrice. They will have  ore shipped during the winter.  The Silver Dollar, adjoining the Mountain Boy, is being developed by, Joe Best,  Tho large body of ore revealed has assayed $113 in silver and as high as $50 in  gold.  A new discovery in the same vicinity  has just been made by Messrs. Burke, Mc-  Kenzie aud Allen. If the specimens  which they brought in prove half as good  as they look, something further will be  heard of the Canadian Belle.  Statement of Plebiscite Vote  The prohibition organization atToronto  has issued the following statement ofthe  voting upon the prohibition plebiscite:  Official figures are available for 50 out of  the 05 electoral districts in Quebec, for  the whole province of Ontario, excepting  the districts of Algoma andMuskoka, and  for practically all of New Brunswick and  Nova Scotia.

Canada is persuaded that Governor  Ogilvie, of the Vukon is thoroughly incorruptible and that he showed rare efficiency a. an administrator when he had  the whole business in his own hands.  Greatness came to Mr. Ogilvie when he  could deal eye to eye with every miner in  the Yukon, and his fame may collapse  amid the trials of a position in which his  reputation depends upon the honesty of  subordinates who may have been forced  upon him. Jt may be that Mr. Ogilvie  will be ..equal''co'the duties of the place.

Has $5,000,000 Worth of Ore in Siffht.  The resources developed this summer in  the Iron Mask at Kossland have not been  surpassed by any ot the sensational developments in the No. I. Columbia & Kootenay and Le Roi. Outside of the disputed  vein very large bodies of ore have been  opened 'up. A conservative, estimate  places the amount of ore in sight at  $5,000,000. The Iron Mask has been making very satisfactory profits all summer.  No smelter returns have been received of  less than $30 per ton, and the average is  well over that.  Spain Lost 35,534 Men by Disease.  While counting the losses through sickness in the war with Spain, it may be  well to keep iu mind that last year the  deaths from disease in the Spanish army  in Cuba were 35,531, or perhaps 1(5 per  cent, of all the soldiers that Spain had on  the island. The great body of the soldiers, too, were in Havana in established  barracks, with no exposure in the trenches  or to the rain or sun. Yellow fever  claimed 0031, typhoid fever 2.500, dysentery 12.000, malarial fever 7,000. other diseases 5,000, and 3,000 died on ships en route  to Spain.   Harold Frederic Doad  Harold Frederic, New Y'ork Times' Loudon correspondent, died of heart disease  Wednesday morning.. Harold Frederic  was a well known novelist, having written several very popular books, his latest  being Gloria Mundi, now running in the  Cosmopolitan Magazine. He was one ol  those American correspondents in London  who have done much to dispel American  prejudice against British  institutions  in  general.    '   Defend  the  Ollice Not tlie Man  The London papers which are condemning the Semliii administration for the  closing of the agent-general's office, say  that such a course 'was not' necessary in  order to retire Forbes G. Vernon. This is  a first-class admission that it was desirable to get rid of the late agent-general.  Will the London papers kindly explain of  what service the office was, since by their  own admissions the incumbent was no  good.  The Attorney-General's Reserve.  The Midway Advance: Brother Martin  is due to arrive from the east in a few  day-, and Brother Semlin and Brother  Cotton arc wondering just how much  mental reservation he will employ in telling his experience at the capital.  Self-appointed Leaders to: Organize the Party  , for Their Benefit,    ,<,'  The   Conservative   bosses   of  the  province are credited with having entered  upon the work of organizing the Conservatives throughout the provincefor both  federal  and provincial  politics.'  From a  political  standpoint British  Columbia is  peculiarly situated.    Previous to the last  genera] elections there was  virtually but  one   political  party' in   the province, the  Conservatives .having   everything   their ���  own way.   Those who held with the Liberal party considered it well to keep their  views pretty much to themselves, and the  Conservative   party    managers    always  counted upon the six seats of the province  as sure.   This condition of a/fairs was disturbed in 1S00 by two causes.    A considerable  McCarthyite  force   was developed,  and   the Bostock  money  made its influence felt for the first time, with the result  that four of the seats were switched from  the Conservative column. , Tu Vancouver  and  Nanaimo   the   McCarthyites   forced  three cornered contests, and  the Liberal  candidates won on pluralities.   In Westminster there was no McCarthyite candidate,   but Aulay  Morrison  doubtless received the bulk of their support.   lie was  likewise the most acceptable candidate.  In   the   yale-Cariboo-Kootenay, Bostock  was   the Liberal candidate,  having been  jockeyed outaf the Liberal nomination at  Victoria.    This  campaign  was a sort of  Mark   Hanna   affair   in   miniature,   and  when the ballots were all counted it was  found  that Hewitt Bostock had secured  possession of the most expensive seat in  the house of commons.  The victory of the Liberal party  throughout the dominion, however, had  a very stimulating effect upon weak-  kneed professors of that faith, and the  visions of the loaves and fishes resulted in  considerable acquisitions to the party of  political purity... So much so was this the  case that the compilers of political statistics readily consented to transfor British  Columbia from the Conservative to the  Liberal column. This condition of affairs .  was far from satisfactory to some dozen  or so of the professional politicians  who regard themselves as the Conservative party. They saw in it no  hope for place and power for themselves,  and therefore a change had to be effected.  Should they succeed in their efforts to reorganize the old party, and should it result in the placing of the control of provincial affairs in their hands, the electors  may well ask themselves where they  are at.  With one or two exceptions the leaders  of the Conservative party in this province  are either discredited politicians, or political birds of passage. A victory for the  Conservative party under such leaders  would mean the handing over of the administration of the affairs of the province  to comparative strangers who have no  stake in the country. Before the humble  members of the great Conservative party  listen to the guile of the party organizer  and commence to shout the praises of the  party and its leaders, it would be well for  them to enquire who the party's leaders  in this province are,-and what their claims  'upon such leadership may be.  The. Nelson-& Bedlington Road.  It is now announced that a start will be  made in a few days on the line of the Nelson <fc J.edlington railway. A meeting of  those interested in the American end of  tlie lino was held at Spokane on Wednesday, and a meeting was held at Kaslo  Thursday afternoon, both of which are  said to have been strictly private.  At the meeting held at Kaslo it is said  that some figures were submitted for the  construction of portions of the work at  very advantageous prices. These prices  are said to have been very much below  the engineer's estimates, and are explained in the fact that' the men tendering for the work have their plant practically on the ground. It is said by those  who profess to know what is transpiring  in the councils of the promoters of the  road that a meeting will be held in Spokane next week, when the contract for  the work will be let. ���'',-���  Turner Talks of the Old Guard.  Fx-piemicr Turner has not yet awakened to the fact that he is a back number  in provincial politics. He still talks glibly  about dividing the next legislaturecvenly  witli the new government. On Wednesday at 'Winnipeg, .he said: "The new  government and opposition have an exactly equal'number of supporters,-nineteen'each. The government is counting  upon the appointing of an opposition  member to tho speakership, hut in this it  will be disappointed, for none of our nien  could be induced to accept the honor,  great though it may be. We are united  and will preserve our full strength  throughout the coming struggle. The  government, f have every reason to be-,  lieve, is already being strained with internal differences, at the bottom of which,  in almost every instance, will be lound  .Joseph Martin, who seems determined to  be the master mind in the new government. I don't think but then my opinion will naturally be considered biassed���  that the government can possibly live  through the coming session, which will  probably commence in January next."  The C.

ISilS-  I_x-Pri_.mi!-:u TurnI'IK left on Monday  i'or London, England, and the newspapers  for-the past'week have been carrying on  a war of words as to whether he intends  to come back or not. There is no reason  why the movements of the ex-premier  should excite comment. If the presence  or absence oi' ex-premier Turner affected  the political situation, public interest  might attach to the question of the place  of his residence for the future, but as ex-  premier Turner is no longer a factor in  the politics of the province, he should be  allowed to remain "at home" or return to  " the colony " as his choice dictates. Ex-  premier Turner today occupies .much the  same place in politics as does Hon. Robert  Heaven���when he puts on his hat he  covers Ii is purty. ,  Tiik provincial government: has retired  Archibald Dick, the inspector of coal  mines, the same to take effect.at the end  of the present month. The reason for  this action is- not stated but it may have  some connection with the new policy of  the government to enforce the provisions  of the Coal AliueK Act with vesoect to the  employment of Chinese.  Tin. merchants of Donald, whose interests  will  suiter  by   the  removal  of   tlie  Canadian Pacific railway divisional shops  from that  point to Golden, have come to  terms  with   president -Van Home.    The  railway   company  acquired  the   .Donald  site for the purposes of a divisional point,  and on the,strength of the location of tlie  shops there  the  merchants   took !)!) year  leases from the company, and erected substantial  stores.    Sir  William Van Home  met the-merchants  at  Donald  last week  aud olfered to give the  holders of Donald  leases similar holdings in llevolstoke, and  .move their effects from   Donald to llevel-  stoke tree of charge.    He also  promised  that the question of monetary compensation for direct loss caused by the removal  of the shops would receive favorable consideration.    Everything, therefore, seems  to be in  shape  I'or the wiping, of the old  capital of the Lvootenays oil' the map.  not  like   the  b"oi;i:K:s ('. Vkic.vo.v does  idea of being retired from the ofiicc of  agent general in London, and it is generally understood tnat several of the adverse comments upon the closing of the  office by the new government, have been  inspired by the former incumbent. This  circumstance no'-'doubt accounts for the  interest taken by a portion of the.press in  the closing by the government of an office  'which the incubent re\ider.e<\ useless by  his absence.

These figures give an  effective answer to  the arguments advanced hy the ministers  in the late government, that   Cassiar was  deserving of two   members becausr; there i  were several   thousand voters  in   the dis- |  trict.

The shortest  and cheapest route according to the .report of engineer Bell is that from Ashcroft,  which is 28S iniles, the estimated cost of  which, is something over $22,000 per mile  or $7,000,000 in all. The building of the  railway is therefore a rather large sized  order, aud much more will probably be  heard concerning it before actual construction is commenced. The odd thing  in connection with the Cariboo railway  is, that so far Messrs. Mackenzie ic Mann,  the advance agents for the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, appear to have  overlooked it.  Ox Saturday Gordon Hunter of Victoria  resigned his appointment as gold commissioner  for the  Yukon.    This action was  made  necessary by  reason of the condi-  dttion  of Mrs.  Hunter's  health, it being  inadvisable for the  new commissioner to  take her to Dawson City, aud equally so  to leave her behind.    The failure of  Gordon Hunter to go  to Dawson  City is a  distinct  loss  to  the  Yukon.    After, the  commissioner's resignation  the office was  tendered to M C. Senkler, of this city, of  the  legal   firm  of  Bowes & Senkler, who  accepled   and  left  on  Monday evening's  train   for  the coast,   where he will   take  passage   for   the   north.    The'announcement of the appointment' of Mr.   Senkler  caineasasttrpri.se to the  people'of Nelson, and while his friends are pleased that  he has received the appointment, there is  more or less speculation as to  the  necessity which  prompted the  federal  government to jump from a man of Gordon Hunter's attainments to Mr. Senkler.    It may  be that when Gordon Hunter resigned (he  position there  was  so  much   urgency   iu  the  matter  that  the  federal authorities  were obliged to take some one  who could  start at once   for  Yukon.    Rumor has it  that tlie office was offered to a brother of  the   present ���commissioner,-   who    is   an  active   Liberal   politician   in   Vancouver,  and who, not  desiring   the  appointment,  recommended his brother.    Gold Coinniissioner Senkler  has  a  knowledge of law  and of  mining, and   his  many  friends in  Nelson will follow his career with interest.  DciiiNo his recent trip over tiie lines of  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company,  President Van Home made a persistent  effort to enlist the co-operation of the  hoards of trade of the cities of the dominion, in his second attempt to shut the  Curbin railway out ofthe Boundary Creek  section. Last year when the Corbin charter was before the liou��e of commons, this I  trick was successfully worked in the cities  of     Vancouver     and     Victoria.        The  merchants   of    these    cities,    while    enjoying tho benefits of  the competition of  American       transportation       companies  themselves, denounced as traitors to the  dominion all who contended for the same  advantages   for   Boundary    Creek.      As  there is every reason  to believe  that the  boards of Trade  in   Vancouver and   Victoria   will   this  winter repeat  their protests against the granting  of  the Corbin  charter, the press and boards of  tradejn  the. southern   portion   of   Kootenay and  Yaie should give them warning that any  such action will   be  resented.    When llie  merchant's of the coast are endeavoring to  secure a portion of the trade of  the mining sections, they should be careful as (o  what alliances they make with the Canadian   Pacific   Railway  Company.    There  was a time when the stores of  Nelson advertised  the  fact  tha.t they  handled no  goods from the coast.    If the  merchants  of  the coast do  not  wish   to   see  these  advertisements    multiplied    anrl    spread  throughout southern Kootenay and Yale,  they will think  twice before   becoming a  party to any conspiracy by   which, in re-  J turn for concessions to  themselves,   they  deliver the mining and commercial interests of Boundary Creek over to the monopoly of tlie Canadian Pacific Railway. ���-,  Roiikrt .Jawra v, of Toronto, one of  the directors of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  Company, was in Nelson on Thursday.  The business of this company is to sell to  the people of Kootenay the coal which  the provincial government gave to Col.  Baker for the purpose of ensuring the  construction of the Crow's Nest Pass railway.'. This great scheme for the opening  up of the southern portion of the province  did not work out in the 'manner in which  it was presented to the people. The  railway company did not get the coal.  It was reserved for a private company. The railway was built out of a  federal government subsidy, and the people of British Columbia are to get their  coal back���by paying so much a ton for it.  Just who is going to be gold commissioner of the Yukon is a question about  which there may be considerable doubt.  On Saturday Gordon Hunter resigned  owing to the illness of his wife. On Monday E. C. Senkler, of Nelson, received the  appointment and left the same evening  for the coast. On Tuesday the wife of  ex-commissioner Hunter so far recovered  that he decided to recall his resignation  and announced that he Would take the  steamer on Wednesday for the north. It  said that Gordon Hunter's determination  to go north was received with considerable satisfaction, but nothing is said as to  what will become ot gold commissioner  Senkler. ���   SLOCAN   MINING   NOTES.  0  mi  DU  Pad  a i  ��� ^ 4 ij I  BRANCH MARKETS   .���  .    .���   .    .

That Nelson is a city,   llio  l'iitui'_ prosperity  of   which   is   virtually assured,  is  borne, out   by   tho .substantial nature oi'  the  buildings  which   have  heen  erected  during the past year.    Id is  a city which  may   fairly   be  said   to have realized i he  hopes of those who pinned  their  faith to  its   future.    With  Nelson there  was  not  the almost inevitable boom which characterizes   most   new   towns,  stance that one-half of  the  held   by   tlie  govern men t, and   the other  half by a railway company, which always-  considered    the   fullire   of   the  place   as  something  assured   precluded any   boom  tendency.    There was   no   effort made  to.  unload    town    lots,    and    tiie     frequent  auction   -ales   of government;  lots   had  a  tendency to preserve  a  normal price  for  bu-ine.-s unci   rc.-ideutinl  property.    Asa  result, business   property in Nelson  never  reached the price-; which rule in Uosslaud.  but   the  Nel-on   pi ices   are  more  nearly  related to  normal  values than  are   those  of IiossJnud.  When ihe townsite of Nelson was lirst  platted it was the intention to make Vernon street the chief business street of the  town, and for a time tiie pioneer merchants conducted their business upon it.  but rJaker street gradually grew in favoi,  aud one by one the Vernon street retail  merchants moved over lo Maker street,  and    Vernon   street' was   given   over   to  k SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT  has been established in connection with the Nelson  Branch of this Bank.

Then  J hi  luxury of plaster was enjoyed. In the  fall of !'S:)(i the lirst brick building -the  (JIcineiit-JiiHyor b!ock--was erecied on  the corner of Maker antl Josephine streets.  This broke the ice, tind the lOliiotl, Me-  Killop and Mara brick blocks were put up  on Maker street in the following summer.  Then came lhe Lawrence Hardware Company's block, the handsomest individual  buildiug in the city, the Mebden & Heb-  den block, and last week tlie finishing  touches were 'given to the Aberdeen  block and to the brick addition to the  Victoria block on Josephine street.  The completion of the Aberdeen block,  and the extension and .improvements  made to'the Victoria block by the Beer  Brothers have worked a transformation  in the appearance of the business center  of Nelson. Six years ago, when the main  portion of the Victoria block was erected,  it"gave to the corner of Baker aud Josephine -streets ' the prestige of being the  chief business corner of the .city, and the  plate glass fronts and general renovation  which Beer Brothers have recently given  to it, will enable it, together with tlie  Clements & Hillyer block, occupied by  Jacob Dover and the Byers Hardware  .Company, to maintain the advantage.  The Victoria block has a frontage of 00  feet   on   Baker   street,  and    120   feet on  Josephine   street,    and    the    merchants  carrying   on    business   in   the   premises  fronting on Baker street are  representative   in   their��� special   lines.    The  corner  store is, and  has  been  for  the past six  years, occupied by the firm of W. J<\ Teetzel & Company, the pioneer  druggists of  the  city, who  for  many years  have enjoyed the distinction of having the most  self-contained and   best appearing  establishment of the kind  in  West Kootenay.  The furnishings and fittings of this store,  which have served a.s a-model   for  excellence in times past, tire shown to greater  advantage now by the plate glass  fronts  which have been added, and when the improvements  now  iu  hand are  perfected  the store will be as far in advance of its  present competitors as it wtis in  advance  of its competitors in IS!)M.   The firm  does  a  purely druggists'  business, and everything embraced in this line of business is  carried  in   stock,   and   nothing   else.    A  feature is   made  of  perfumes  and druggists'sundries, their stock of which is'not  excelled by that of any house  in ihe province.    The dispensary is in the charge of  capable men, whose careful attention has  given the firm a most enviable reputation.  The adjoining store is occupied   by the  dry goods firm of Fred it-vine & Company,  it  is   i20 feet  in   depth,  has  plate glass  fronts and is lighted witli arc  and   incandescent:  lumps.    This   firm  has occupied  quarters in the Victoria block   since   f8!)."5,  but;     the     recent    improvements     have  doubled the size of  their premises.    Next  wt-./k the firm will ha ve a formal opening,  c I'unienciiig on Thursday, when for three  days an orche.-t.ra, will  be in   attendance.  j-r< d   Irvine,   the. senior  member of   the  lirm. has built up the linn's  present business   by  careful   catering  lo  the requirements   of- the   trade.    l.'Yom   a  dry goods  business, tin; staples of which   were prospectors'clothing and furnishings,   he has  virtually  such an e-!ab!Mnnent in the city there is  no neces-dLy whatever for seiid ing to eastern centers for anything in the way of  fancy dry unods or house ,,fm nishing--.  The linn's opening next w��-ek promises to  be very attractive, as each, department,  will be s'ocked with <-��� complete line of  new gt.-ods. f| fi-ai ui e of wdiich will boa  display of carpets unequalled by any display of a like nature ever made in this  city.  The third store in the block is occupied  by the Nelson Hard ware Company, a comparatively new firm which has to meet  the competition of the Lawrence Hardware Company, tiie Byers hardware  house and the Vancouver Hardware Company, all of which are more pretentious  establishments. The Nelson Hardware  Company does a general hardware business and its volume of business is on the  increase.  The Josephine street frontage of the  Victoria block is fitted up as business  olliees, which are just receiving the. finishing (ouches, but none of which are yet  ready for occupancy. Their location will  command good rentals. The second floor  of the block is also fitting up tor office-,  nearly all of which arc occupied, the owners oi' the block having their of/ices in the  addition.  The Aberdeen block is a very showy  two-.-tor.y brick building with stone  trimmings and plate glass front, it has  a frontage of oO feer, with a depth of 7:1  feet. The ground floor is given up to two  cnmmodioii- stores which have been very  y finished in tlie interior and are  with incandescent lamp-. The  store at the western v.nd of the block is.  occupied by the grocery lirm of M. Dos-  Mrisay ic Company, who divide tho grocery business of the city with Messrs.  Kirkp'itrick ic Wilson. Jn their new premises the (inn oi' DesMrisay ic Company  ha i e unquestionably the most altraetivu  grocery establishment in West ivootenay,  in which they will he able to display to  advantage their stock of staple a:ui fancy  gro' cries, as the ceilings are high and  th'-re is an abundance ol* light.  Tiie eastern store in i he A berdeen block  is ou.upied by Lillie Brothers, the leaders  iu ��� he boot and shoe business of the city.  This firm enjoys the distinction of  having introduced much higher grades of  boors and .shoes than were carried by the.  other merchants prior to their entry into  the business. They are thoroughly up to  date, and ofler to their patrons the very  latest styles as quickly as the new goods  are ready for the market. /Their establishment is one which does credit to the  city and is the equal of anything of a  similar nature in the province.  The second story of the Aberdeen  block is devoted to offices, some of which  were engaged weeks before they were  ready for occupancy,  The End in Sight, iu; the Transvaal,  Harold Frederic, the London newspaper  correspondent,'has given  out a story to  the effect that Dr. Leyds, the Boer emissary to Germany,  has been  unmercifully  snubbed by the German .under secretary  of Poreign Affairs aud warned not attempt  to stir up any anti-British   feeling in the  German 'press.'  The  wounds  of the, unlucky  doctor appear  to   heal   so slowly  that Vou Bulow himself,   that courteous  dispenser of the nastiest medicine in the  sweetest  form,  has spoken  a   string   of  ������pretty  words, though without repealing  ins   subordinate's   direct   commands   or  minimizing his warning.   Much allowance  may   be  made  for Leyds,  who has been  considerably outwitted at his  own game.  The  cards   were so  heavily against him  that he could scarcely have hoped  to win  the Delagoa Bay. trick, but it is hard lines  ou him'that his audience with the Kaiser  should   be  announced  on   the same (lavas  the  practical  concession  of  the  bay,  railways and  other  rights   to   England.  Nothing could have stopped  this happening, though a threatened   war  with Germany might have  deferred it.   This fact  the Boers  will not,  or seemingly cannot  see, for they are. adopting  reprisals in a  form of domineering regulations,  exacting  service  from   the Kngiish  sett[ers in  the Transvaal, who, in all  other respects,  are being treated as aliens.    Then, to ease  matters, Kruger is  shaking   hands .unostentatiously across the  border with  the  Orange Free St.ate.   The one   chance  is  that the Kaiser may put tilings so plainly  and  bluntly  before   Leyds   that  he   will  rush back and stop the obstinate premier  from   pushing  matters   to   that   extreme  limit where even a conceding Tory ministry has.to fight or go.

The .Mount of Olives  will be visited on the 'JOth.and thu crowning ceremony will be the dedication of  the Church of the Redeemer on the 'list,  the annivcisary of the date when Luther  nailed the theses to the church door at  Wittenburg. On the same date in 1893  the cornerstone of the church was laid,  and with in the stone a documeu t was deposited which had been written by the  presen t em peror, eloq uen tly ex tolling the  desire of " my royal grandfather to accomplish what is only now possible,"  plainly ' suggesting a parallel- between  King David, who was not permitted to  build tlie Temple, and King Solomon,'who  was permitted to do so so; and also declaring that it "'shall stand as a monument to  the.faith oioened to evangelical Christendom through the reformers and as a visible witness to the unity of faith iu which  the evangelical churches of Germany are  bound with each other and ail outside."  The busiest preparations have for a  long time been making for the visit. The  roads throughout the Holy Land are being repaired and new ones constructed.  The ancient mule tract tip Scopus and  over the Mount of Olives, which served  Titus and his warriors, and along which  King David fled from Absalom when he  was stoned and cursed by Sheinei, and  which has been climbed by. generations'of  Jebusites, Jews, Romans, Moslems, Christian knights, pilgrims and tourists, is being replaced by a modern carriage road,  built at the. wish of the German Empress,  so as to be able to reach the sacred site  without fatigue.  All the preparations point to the Emperor's popularity among the Sultan's  subjects. -'Even the fellaheen of tlie villages and the boatmen of .Jaffagladly pay  a two-dollar tax each toward the now  road that is building.

There-is  room there for 10,01)0,000 Germims, and  German colonies are already flourishing  in Syria. '  It must be confessed that ihe foregoing  is regarded as being outside of immediate,  practical politics by serious Germans, but  that is no reason why (he em peror .should  not proclaim it as his policy in the llower-  h'st. imperial rhetoric.

Transvaal Affairs in Bad Shape  Th�� Transvaal treasury returns for the  quarter ending March .''Isl,' 1S9S, will  doubtless convince president Kruger of  the fact t hat in hedging (he mining industry about wil h restrictions he killed the  goo-e of the goldeu eggs. The return  shows a falling off in the receipts of over'  $100,000. which is at T.he rate ot over  $l,")00,00() per annum. That the depressed  state of the mining industry has brought  this about is shown by the fact thai  transfer fees have fallen off'$100,000, prospecting license receipts $1.-30,000 and diggers' licenses $10,000. During the quarter  there were more than twice as many passages booked out of the country as  there were during the corresponding  quarter in 1M97.  Economical Working at Anaconda.  The average value of Anaconda ore for  the past 12 months was '1.2(5 per cent, copper. -J.-IS 0'/,s. silver, and 0.011 gold per ton.  This gave an average return of $11.22 to  the ton of ore treated. So admirable was  the system followed, that even this low  average value permitted a net profit of  11.8 per cont. on a caoital stock of SjMO,-  000.000.

A coroner's jury rendered a verdict  Thursday   afternoon  to   the   effect  that  Vincenzo.'the Italian who dropped dead  iu the Kootenay hotel on Wednesday,  morning', died from the effects of heart  disease. As the deceased had not been  attended by any medical miin, a coroner's  ��� inquest was deemed necessary to determine the cause of death.  Rev. C W. Gordon, who recently delivered   a   lecture   in    the   Presbyterian  church, has returned to the east, where,  through the press, he endeavors to tell  the easterners how intemperate and immoral are the people of the mining districts.  On Thursday last T. .J. Scimlan, of this  city, was married to Miss Minnie Lamb, of  .Rockwood, Ontario. Mr. and Mrs. Scan-  Ian are expected in Nelson next week.  Although the city has given repeated  notices to those in arrears  for  light and  water, _o per cent, of the users of water  have failed to pay their arrears. Tlie  use:s of light have done better, as the total arrears for light is only $."5S.50. The  total collections for light i'or the months  of August and September amount 10  $'_0Si.oo. and the total expenditure for  maintenance $0-10.00.  The Hennessey Brothers who made a  handsome clean-up out of the,Noble Five  and other Slocan properties, will put iu  the approaching winter in developing the  Lucky strike claim on Midget creek, ."just  over the divide from the head of A\rild  Horse creek. They are having 0000 pounds  of supplies packed to the property from  Ymiv.  Prank Oliver, editor of the Edmonton  Bulletin, aud representative of that district in the house of commons, was in  Nelson on Wednesday. Frank Oliver  en.io.ys the distinction of being about the  only independent man who sits on the  government side of the house.  The new Canadian Pacific Railway  steamer Moyie City will probably be  launched this afternoon.  Next month Jacob Dover, the leading  jeweler of West Kootenay, will issue a  catalogue of the goods which he has secured for the Christmas trade. His stock  embraces all the latest novelties, and his  prices are those, which obtain in the east  for the same goods.  Thomas*. M. Ward, assignee of the estate  of Thomas W. Gray, is calling for tenders  for the purchase of the sawniili'of the  estate as a going concern. This should  prove a desirable investment. The mill  is ad vantageously situated, aiid there is a  steady demand for its product. All that  is needed is sufficient ������money fo finance a  business of its si/.e.

BY   THE    WAY.  consulting the emperor. The new Italian  minister at Peki'n has demanded the customary audience with the nominal head  oi the empire, and much interest is  aroused about the part the dowager will  take in the ceremony.  It was not to be expected that Kaiser  William's well advertised photographic  tour to the Holy Land would escape tho  cognizance of the anarchists. X'ine of  these desperadoes, all of them Italians,  have been arrested at Alexandria in  Egypt. One of the men is a cafe keeper,  and in his premises' the police discovered  two wire-bound bombs of great strength  and full of bullets. The anarchists intended originally to use the bombs in  Cairo, but when the kaiser cancelled  Egypt on his trip they transferred then-  operations to Palestine. The Italian consul general at Cairo tipped the scheme oil  to the Alexandria police.  John Edmonds, a local preacher of  Wood burn, Ontario, will have to pay $350  damages for libelling Miss Annie Bonner,  of the same place. That is the verdict in  a suit she brought against him at Hamilton. He had told people that he had seen  Miss Banner chase her father and throw  cord wood at him. Wheu the Benners  heard his statements they threatened to  sue him forslander. He replied facetiously  replied by letter: "A word about Annie  ���poor, tender-hearted, delicate, sensitive  Annie���so kind to her father in life and  solicitous for his eternal welfare after  death. Vet it is not so very long ago I  saw, myself, this same Annie drive her  father out of the house and then pelt him  with sticks of stovewood. Do you think  it would add to your daughter's character  to have this and much more published iu  court, and in the public newspapers? If  you think so, go ahead with your suit;  "but if you will take my advice, you will  let sleeping dogs lie." That letter cost  him just $"350, for the slander suit was  dismissed and the the libel based upon  the letter only.  Why the Builders Were Laid Off.  ' M. La Countess de Castelane (nee Anna  Gould) has discontinued building operations on her marble palace in the Avenue  Bois.de Boulogne. She found that her  precious husband was in league with the  contractors, and was getting forty per  cent,   of  the  exhorbitant  bills  she   was  paying.   Development at the Poorman.  It is not likely that any attempt will be  made for the present at running the mill  at the Poorman, but when the present development which the company has in  hand is completed there will be ore  enough iu sight to keep the. mill going for  twelve months.

The Wealth of the Soudan  R. \Y. Pel kin, who was with general  Gordon,' gives some interesting information concerning the wealth of the  Soudan in the Contemporrry Review.  The annual export of gum, ostrich leathers, raw hides, and  cattle   from   Kordo-  fan used to be valued at from .CIOO.OCO  to ��150,000 a year. A large tpiai-  tity of grain was produced.
