COLUMBIA, SATURDAY   SEPTEMBER 11; ISOI  KOOTENAY  r  Has  Three  Smelters   in   Successful Operation,  and  Enough  Ore   in Sight, to  Run  Several   More.  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR.  FOUR   HUNDRED   LOTS   POR   SALE.  Im-  Squatters', Lots Will be Sold, But their  provements "Will be Protected.  Charles A. Waterman & Company have  been instructed by the chief commissioner  of lands and works to offer for sale by  public auction all the government town  lots in the city of Nelson with the exception of the lots comprising block 'ID.    The  The sale will be held iu the court.house  on Thursday, October 7th, at 2 o'clock in  the afternoon.  There will be over 100 lots offered at  this sale, the upset price upon which will  range from $100 up. All lots held by  squatters will be offered for sale, but the  government has decided to treat the  squatters fairly. An appraisement of  these lots, with their improvements, has  been made, and at the sale the lots will  be offered for sale subject to the upset  price fixed upon them, and over and above  the price realized , from the sale of the  land the purchaser will be required to deposit with .he government, for the benefit of the squatter,- the appraised value of  the improvements thereon. This is perhaps the fairest way in which the squatters difficulty can be overcome. In cases  where squatters have put up a mere  shack and have fenced in several lots the  squatter's right shall only be recognized  with respect, to the lot upon which the  shack stands, but where substantial  dwellings have been erected the squatter's  right will be recognized to one or two additional lots. As the value of the lots  designated as squatters' lots aggregates  $20,000 it was important that the government should safeguard the public inter-  eat in the inatter of the upset price upon  squatters' lots so that local sympathy for  the squatters would not prevent the government from realizing the value of the  lots.  Under the conditions of the sale the  "purchaser will be required to pay 2;*5 per  cent of the amount of the purchase on the  drop of the hammer and the balance  within HO days.  Any particulars respecting the sale may  be secured upon application 'to Messrs.  Charles A. AVatennan ic Company, Baker  street. ,  '      TO   LIU-HT   THE   STREETS.  Hillyer, it was resolved that the water  commissioner notify the Hall Mines that  on the completion of the waterworks system their communication will be taken  into consideration.  The council decided to allow contractor  Thomas Halliday his bill for extras on  the city lock-up, amounting to $38(i.79. A  resolution to this effect was moved by  alderman Teetzel, ���seconded by alderman  Gilker. The amount still due, together  with the extras, will be retained by the  city, and bills for material tmd labor will  be paid therefrom.  The council went into committee of the  whole for the further consideration of the  plumbing by-law.    Jt was reported com-,  plete and received its third reading.

At Monday evening's session of the city  council the public works committee reported upon the subject of widening  Ward street, from Baker street to Vernon street. The committee reported that  the work would cost about $2,000, and  while the members of the committee  would like to see the work done, the funds  at their disposal did not warrant any  such outlay. Should the council see fit to  order the work done, the committee recommended that the city engineer  make an estimate of the cost of the same  before work was commenced. The report  was received, and as the council took no  action it may be assumed that nothing  will be done in the matter of widening  Ward street for the present.  Two tenders were received, for the  pipe and connections for the sewer system. H. J. Evans & Co. offered to supply  the required materials for $2,90-1, and the  British Columbia Pottery Co.'s figures  were $2,907.70. On motion of alderman  Teetzel, seconded by alderman Malone,  the tender of H. J. Evans & Co., was accepted. .���������.-  Wilson & Harshaw submitted a tender  for distributing pipe for the waterworks  system at the rate of $2.50 per ton. The  matter was laid over.  Mayor Houston was authorized to purchase valves, valve boxes and fire hydrants for the water works system from  Frank Darling.  Thompson Brothers asked permission  to make certain alterations in their store  on Baker street. Their request; was refused, on the ground that such improvements would be a violation of the fire  limits by-law.  A communication was received from  Thorpe & Company, manufacturers of  soda water, protesting against the charge  of $10 per month for water rates. The  water commissioner was instructed to  collect the full rate.  On motion of alderman Teetzel, seconded by alderman Gilker, the council  decided to pay Messrs. Breckenridge &  Lund estimates of $1,1-10 and $855 on account of the contracts for the reservoir  and Hume. The contractors were also  authorized to substitute white pine for  cedar in the construction of the flume between the headworkson Anderson creek  and the reservoir.  On motion of alderman Hillyer, seconded by alderman Gilker, it was resolved  to ask the Xelson Electric Light company to submit a proposition for the  lighting of the streets of the city.  It was also decided to employ F. C.  Gamble to make a report on the volume  of water flowing in Kootenay river  for the enlightenment of the provincial  board of health, regarding the discharge  of the sewage of Nelson into the river.

Manager Whyte of the.Canadian Pacific,  on his return to Winnipeg from Kootenay,  gave an interview to the press upon railway matters. Iu the course of his remarks  he said:    "One of the objects of our visit  to  the Kootenay   country  was  to  meet  Mr. Heiuze, who has a system of railways  in the district as a feeder for the smelter  at Trail, to confer as to future extensions,  but the gentleman tfad left for the south,  and    Mr.   Shaughnessy    will    meet   Mr.  Heinze in Minneapolis."   Mr. Whyte here  explained'the service in the district, and  also of the survey by Mr. Heinze of a line  from Trail to Robson, so as to bring other  ores to his smelter at the former point,  but  the   great   difficulty   was  the high  charges for  carriage of freight and the  great cost of fuel, which is brought from  the Nanaimo coal mines, via Victoria and  Vancouver,      to,   head ' of    navigation,  and then by barges to Trail.    "The Canadian Pacific does not desire to injure the'  vested rights of others," continued manager Whyte, "though it is recognized that  to assure the full development ofthe mining interests of the district, freight rates  and cost of fuel must be reduced.   The  construction of the Crow's Nest Pass railr  way, and the opening of coal  mines in  the pass will afford opportunity to  lay  down   coke at a  minimum   price.     The  Rossland  camp is  permanent, and  there  was no doubt a smelter would be established at Robson.   The reference of vice-  president Shaughnessy was to make some  arrangement with Mr. Heinze to mutually  operate the line from Trail to Robson, the  C. P. R. building a link to reach the Rossland mines."     '          Gold in the Ainsworth Ores.  Additional evidence has been secured  which establishes the fact that the Ainsworth ores carry gold, (Several months  ago assays made from the dumps of the  Highlander and Highland properties  gave gold returns. Recently Maxwell  Stevenson, manager of the Highlander,  took a large piece of the same kind of  rock from the Highlander tunnel and sent  it to the U. S. assay office at Charlotte,  North Carolina. Returns have just been  received, showing that it runs $29.70 in  gold.  The Crow's Nest Road,  progress  is   being  made  Good progress is being made both in  grading and track-laying on the Crow's  Nest Pass railway.

Sarah Ella Ridout Wins a  Breach of Promise  Suit Against W. M. McLeod.  A jury composed of eight Nelson  men  awarded Sarah  l.lla Ridout $3,000 damages for breach of promise on Thursday.  The defendant in the case was W. M. McLeod, a Rossland hotel keeper!   From the  evidence it  appeared  that McLeod  met  the plaintiff in .Seattle in 1890.    She was  at that time a married  woman, her husband living in the east.    McLeod induced  the woman to live with him as his wife,  under the promise that so soon as her husband died he would marry her.    The husband was sufficiently obliging to die some  time later, but when the legal barrier was  removed McLeod was not willing to carry  out his promise of marriage, although repeatedly urged to do so by Sarah.   To the  general   public,   however,   they   always  went as man and wife.  In the spring of 189(5 the couple came to  Rossland and started in the hotel business, where the plaintiff undertook the  duties of chambermaid. She remained  there until November, when McLeod grew  tired of her and giving her $100 ordered  her to make herself scarce. The defence  endeavored to show that the woman had  been guilty of immoral conduct before being cashiered, but in this it was not successful.  W. A. Macdonald, who with F. M. McLeod, appeared for the plaintiff, made an  excellent address to the jury, composed  ofT. A. Mills, A. J. Marks, Fred Irvine,  Edward II. Stanley, Charles Hillyer, John  A. Kirkpatrick. Jerry Robilliard and A.  H. Clements. It is generally stated .that  Macdonald worked on their heart-strings  with sufficient success to produce tears,  but this the jurors stoutly deny. In giving the case over to them justice Drake  charged in favor of the plaintiff aud submitted four questions to them for consideration. They were out two hours before they could agree. They found that  there had been a promise of marriage  made by the defendant, and that the  same had been accepted by the plaintiff;  that the plaintiff was not guilty of immodest or immoral conduct iu Rossland  while living with the defendant in November, 1890; that there had been a promise of marriage and that a reasonable,  time for the fulfillment of that promise  had elapsed: that the plaintiff should be  awarded $3,000 damages. !  A. Li. MacNeill, of  Liossland, appeared  for the defence.  TWELVE   PER   CENT   DIVIDEND.  The  Rounds  The Trade of Canada.

The exports for June were  $1G,S25,000, as against $11,931,000 for June,  .18(37; and the exports for the year were  $233,021,000,.as against $121,013,000 in the  previous year. The high price of wheat  and several other products and the good  crops warrant the belief that 1897-98 will  be even a better year than its predecessor.  SLOCAN   MINING   NOTES.  The only mine affected by the decline  of silver in the vicinity of Silverton will  be the Fisher Maiden. The rumor that  the Wakefield was to close down is denied by those in charge. They will employ in the neighborhood of thirty men  all winter and will be shipping all winter.  More men are being taken on at the  Whitewater mine and the force will be  steadily added to, a.s it is the intention to  have 90 men at work before the winter  sets in. Although large shipments of ore  have already been made, practically no  ore other than that taken out in development has been shipped. When the owners of the Whitewater decide to go in for  heavy shipments some astonishing returns may be expected.  A rich strike was made on the Hillside  claim at Whitewater on Thursday last.  In the incline shaft being sunk on the  vein, at a depth of 10 feet, six inches of  clean ore tind carbonates aud two feet of  scattered concentrating ore was found on  the foot-wall. The ledge, which is 18 feet  wide on the surface, is strong and well  defined, and as the ore chute is widening  with every foot of depth great results are  expected. A double shift will be put on  and a 50-foot cross-cut started immediately. The shaft i.s within 1,000 feet by  an air line of the K. & S. track.  The New Waterworks.  Work is progressing fairly well on the  new waterworks. The reservoir will be  ready for the clay puddle next week, and  contractor Breckenridge expects to have  it completed on time. The construction  of the flume has been delayed, owing to  the poor quality of the lumber delivered  by the Salmo sawmill people, who have  the contract for supplying the lumber.  The pipe has all been shipped, and the  first lot may be received next week. Contractor McLean is ready to begin work on  its arrival.  Nelson  Electric  Light  Company  Out a Prosperous Year.  At the annual  meeting of the Nelson  l_lectric Light company, held on Monday  afternoon, a 12 per cent stock and cash  dividend  was'declared   for  the financial  year just closed.   The following directors  were   appointed   Lor  the   ensuing   year:  .lohn  Houston,   president and   manager:  John    J.   Malone,   vice-president;   J.  JI.  Matheson, secretary; John Johnson, treasurer; J. Fred Hume, ,1. A. Mara and John  Hamilton.  The report of the manager respecting  the growth of the company's business for  the past year will be interesting to the  shareholders.    It is appended :  "During the year the number of users  of light increased from 73 to Wi and the  number of   lamps  (taking 10 ,c.   p.  as a  basis) from 730 to 1,222.   The earnings of  the company aggregated $11,223.53, whicli  was derived from  two sources;  namely:  lights,   $7,408.4-1,   and   installations,   $:.,-  815.09.   The cost of operating and maintaining the plaut was $4,'384.11, and $3,-  0-11.91 were paid for  material and labor  on installation  account.    The loss from  bad accounts  was  $47^50 for lights  and  $29.75 for installations, a total of $77.25.  During the year $4(55.3S were paid as interest on loans.    Deducting these several  amounts from  the   earnings   leaves $3,-  304.S5 as net earnings.    Of this amount  $743.40   were   credited   to . construction.  The remaiuder, $2,501.45, is 14 per cent on  the capital stock issued prior to August  1st.    While this sum is not on hand aud  available to pay a cash dividend���for the  bulk of it has been used in paying off the  construction account oblgations  of   the  company as they became due���you are  fairly entitled to a 12 per cent dividend,  to be paid in stock and cash, as your directors may decide."  for the road. Engineer Keefer says tliat  the surveys have been completed and  plans sent to Victoria. The road will run  up the east side of Kootenay river, provided no changes are made. Further operations hang upon the decision'of the  representatives expected in Nelson next  week.  Mary Jane Dobbins was fined $2.50 tmd  costs by magistrate Crease on LVtday for  allowing a bull to run at large within the  city.' John Blauey, pound-keeper, was  the informant.  Thomas W. Cray has been .summoned  to appear before magistrate Crease on  Tuesday for a breach of the sanitary laws.  On and after Monday the Canadian Pa-  cific train connecting at Robson with  steamers north bound, will leave Nelson  at 7 o'clock in the morning instead of (5:30  p. m. as'formerly.  John Miles has been admitted to  bail,  himself for $200 and two sureties of $100  each.  Dave MacBeath, of McLean Bros. &  Co., was in the city today. He says that  work upon the Slocan river road is progressing well aud the railway company  will be able to have trains moving on the  line by October 20th.  THE   SLOGAN'S   GREAT   RECORD.  LOCAL   NEWS   AND   GOSSIP.  The latest man to make a guess as to  the intentions of the "lessees of tlie Pilot  Bay smelter turned out the following:  "The Pilot Bay smelter has announced  free transportation of ores on Kootenay  lake for treatment at its smelter, aud instead of following the example of the  Hendryx smelter and charging a few  more dollars per ton than was charged at  American smelters, to support home industry, the Pilot Bay people promise a  much lower rate than the existing $21  freight and treatment charge."  The purse containing over $20, which  was lost by Mrs. Simmons, not having  been returned, several of the ladies of  Nelson got together, purchased a pocket  book and made up a purse for the loser.  As Mrs. Simmons won out with a new  pocket book and more money than she  lost she desires to express her thanks for-  the first loss.  The Nelson Sawmill company is making  application to the court for permission to  wind up its affairs.  The natural increase in the population  of Nelson for the past week was three.  The newcomers are all girls: Miss Tits-  worth, Miss Flurey and Miss White.  Dan Dunn, twho enjoys the distinction  of having had his picture printed in Harper's Monthly Magazine, has returned to  Nelson after an absence of four years and  two months. He has been given the freedom of the city for four days and two  burs. '  W. II. Will, carpenter, contractor, mine,  owner and all-round speculator, left Nelson this week for Alaska: He will winter  at Juneau, or some other point on the  coast, and go over to the Yukon in the  spring. Mr. Will's friends wish him good  luck, for he is a square man in anv country.  Arthur Johnstone Douglas, J). L., of  Comlongon Castle, Ruthwell, Dumfries,  Scotland, chairman'of the board of directors of the London and British-Columbia  Gold Fields, Lamited, accompanied by G.  B. Turnbull, member of the well known  Edinburgh firm of stockbrokers, Messrs.  Hardy ic Turnbull, are at present making  a tour of British Columbia looking over  the interests and holdings of the various  companies with which they are closely  connected. Mr. Johnstone Douglas is also  chairman of the Scottish Colonial Company, ,vhich has recently acquired a large  interest in the Idaho group in the Slocan.  The party, by the courtesy of the Hall  Mines company, were yesterday shown  the smelter. S\ S. Fowler, E. M., engineer  to the Loudon & British Columbia Gold  lrields, Limited, is conducting the party  over some of the Wild Horse creek properties, notably the Yrnir. They will visit  the more important mining districts and  properties before returning to the old  country.  .J. B. McArthur, of liossland, was in the  city today. McArthur is no longer in the  newspaper business, having sold his interest in the Rossland Miner to the parties who made the recent purchase of that  sheet. McArthur's experience is different  from that of most men who have dabbled  in newspaper enterprises in Kootenay.  He got his money back and has no positive knowledge as to the identity of the  purchasers. The men behind the Miner  are afraid to make themselves known.  George A. Keefer, of Victoria, the engineer in charge of the survey work for the  Bedlington A: Nelson railway from the  international boundary to the foot of  Kootenay lake, is in this city awaiting  the arrival of the representatives of the  English company which litis the charter  Mr. Juneau, of Kansas.  A resident of Dodge City, Kansas, is  said by the Kansas City Journal to be the  founder of tlie  "metropolis" of Alaska,  aud that it is named after him.   He is Mr.  H.  Juneau, a  cousin  of George Juneau,  who discovered the gold deposits iu the  neighborhood of that place.   The settlement was at first called Harrisburg. but  the miners changed it to Juneau in honor  of the Kansas man, who went there at  the invitation ot his relative in  I SSI  and  remained for four years.    In a recent interview   Mr.   Juneau   spoke   iu   adverse  terms of the route to the Klondyke fields  by  way of the  Yukon.    He   favors  the  passage  by the Chillkoot  pass  and  the  employment of Indians as carriers. Mules  and horses cannot compass the climbing,  and, besides, there is no grass in the country.    "The country," he said, "is covered  with mossj a vine that contains prickles  as sharp as a   porcupine,  with  saw-like  edges, with the edges reversed or pointing to you. They get into the fleshand stick-  deep.   These pricks with the back barb  break as you pull them out of your flesh,  and a portion remains in the Mesh.   The  only way to get them out is to dig them  out.   The pricks make a sore.   These in-  -fernal pricks are about one-aud a half to  two inches long, and there is excruciating  pain when you pull these barbed pricks  from your flesh.   The chigger is nowhere  in comparison to the moss prick.    Except  where tlie water wears the surface of the  earth the country is covered with moss.  That is one of the difficulties of travel.  Where there is no ice there is moss and'  devil's club, tlie latter is a vine tliat winds  around anything that it can clutch.   Persons walking become entwined in the network of moss and devil's club, aud passage  is extremely difficult and tortuous."  Important Municipal Convention.  On the 28th inst. a convention of United  States mayors and councilmen will be  -.held: at Columbus, Ohio, to form a national "municipal organization, in which it  is proposed that the cities and municipalities should be represented by their chief  executive officers and meet periodically to  discuss questions of common interest.  The convention that is called for the 28th  is advertised to deal with such questions  as the granting of street railway, gas,  electric and other franchises, the collection aud disposition of garbage, the relative merits of the various street-paving  materials, and cleaning of streets, the municipal ownership of lighting plants and  the cost of street lighting under the contract system, the municipal management  ' of public water supplies and the necessity  for water filtration, fire and police protection, parks and playgrounds, 'municipal  finances, taxation and special assessments  aud the regulation of the social tind saloon evils.    ,  The Ora Plata's Showing.  The Ora Plata company reports a good  showing on White . ('rouse property. A  20-foot shaft shows up a 3-foot ledge of  gray copper and galena, which assays 70  ounces silver, 15 per cent copper, 30 per  cent lead and from $10 to $20 in gold.  They now have about II tons of shipping  ore on the dump. A 100-foot tunnel will  be started soon, which is expected will  cut the ledge 300 feet below the surface.  They expect to keep a large force of men  at work all the winter.  Declared a Substantial Dividend.  The Dominion Mining Ac Developing  Company of Vancouver, litis declared a  dividend of $1.75 per share. The company  has been in existence for two years. The  dividend was paid from the stile of Golden  Cache stock acquired in exchange lor raising funds for the purchase of the ('olden  Cache mines.  .......  The Belgian Coal  Trade.  The Belgian imports of coal during the  were S 17,-101  metric tons,  first halt of 1897  an increase of 72,(i33 tons, as compared  with the lirst six months of hist year.  The exports were 1,901,251 tons, a decrease  of 1152 tons.  Deny the Story.  The report that several of the smelter  men will leave the employ of the Hall  Mines and follow the fortunes of their  former superintendent in Mexico, is denied by severn 1 of the. men themselves.  Despite the Pall In Silver Its August Exports  More than Double those of 1886.  The shipping record of the Slocan mines  for the month of August illustrates, well  the development which  has taken  place  in   the   Slocan   during   the  past  twelve'  months.    Despite the fact that the price  of silver has fallen, the customs  value of  the ore exported from the Slocan during  the   past   month   more  than  doubles  in  value the ore exported  from Slocan and  Ainsworth districts during the month of  August.  1S9(i:    During   the   past month .  shipments    were    made    from    nineteen  niiues in  the Slocan, aggregating in tonnage 2892 tons, of a total value <>f $27(5,812,  ao compared with $128,954, being the total  value of the Slocan and Ainsworth districts for the corresponding month in 1890.  The Kootenaian is alive to the advancement which has been made, and publishes  some interesting statistics in the comparison of the record of the past month with  that  of   August,  1890.     These statistics  show that the following shipments were  made during the month:  I'avno     until .r: ;.;;;.

The city assessor of liossland has completed his work of assessing the land and  improvements within the limits of the  city. The roll shows the following taxable property:  OKKil.VAI. ���lOWNSITK.

Sl.503.5fil  To any one acquainted with Rossland  it will appear that the assessor has underestimated the values if anything, and for  ; this reason it is not likely that any substantial reductions will be made by the  court of revision. The assessor's figures  show a land value of $1,014,188, from  which, under the maximum rate allowed  under the municipal act, the corporation  could raise a revenue of $15,000. The im-v  provements are entered as valued at  $493,873. ��� These are liable to assessment  up to 50 per cent of their value, which  would yield another $3000, making the  total municipal revenue from the land  and improvements $18,000.  To Develop' Crow's Nest Coal Fields.  The Kootenay Coal Company, of Montreal, owners of the coal fields in the  Crow's Nest Pass, are making arrangements for the speedy development of the  same. Two of the directors, accompanied  by two mining engineers of experience,  are now busy among the coal seams, making surveys, preparing plans, and fixing  upon the places where, actual mining operations are to commence. The directors  who are there superintending these operations are William Fernie, I<"ort Steele,  and Robert Jaffray, Toronto, president of  the Globe -Newspaper L^ublishing Company. The engineers are M. W. Black-  more, M. L_. from Glace Bay, Cape Breton,  and Mr. Ramsay, M. I.., from Denver,  Colorado, engineers who have had wide  experience.  The Highlander Mill and Tramway.  The Stevensons. of Philadelphia, are  erecting a concentrating plant at the  Highlander that will .handle 200 tons per  day. They are building a tramway that  will carry not only the ore from the Highlander, but custom ores a.s well. They  intend putting in a tramway that will  run north from their dump at the Highlander, tind afford facilities for handling  most of the ore now being hauled by  wagon. It means more to Ainsworth than  is apparent at first glance.  The Lanark Closed Down.  There is a "close down" of the Lanark  mine as a result probably of a meeting of  the directors held at I.uurie last week, at  which were jiresent Mr. Horne-Payne. Q.  C, sir Charles Ross, Frank Stillman Barnard and-others. A very large force of  men were recently employed at this mine,  and at the last general meeting of the  company glowing accounts of its value  were given. On Thursday, however, the  hands were all dismissed but four, a blacksmith and a cook. It is reported that the  concentrator will close today, and that  the development at the mine was hack-  ward.

R. Maxwell publicly denounced Hon. D. W. Iiiggins as a  man unworthy of the confidence of the  people of this province. Jn the opinion  of Maxwell, speaker Higgins committed  an unpardonable sin in supporting the  Turner government. Jt would seem as if  his first dose of politics had soured Maxwell's milk. This is very much to be regretted- since Maxwell is a very clever  man. The trouble appears to be that he  has opened the campaign with the idea  that Lie is the opposition party. It would  look better if G. it. Maxwell would win  his spurs before he presumed to say who  is worthy and who is unworthy of public  confidence. If he gives a good account of  himself he will no doubt be rewarded  when the fight is won. It is not good  politics for Maxwell to "knock" D. W.  Iiiggins. People might be uncharitable  enough to think it was done in the fear  that there would not be enough jobs to go  round. Higgins is not the only man who  has changed his politics. Minister Tiirte  did something of the kind, and it did not  ;jar the sensibilities of G. R. Maxwell to  any noticeable extent.  G. R. Maxwell, M. P., i.s not over  modest whatever other faults he may  have as a public man. While in Slocan  City last week he had a talk with The  Pioneer newspaper man, and as a result  of this conversation the following appeared in The Pioneer: "On being in-  " formed that a great number of people  " through the province desired him to  " assume the leadership of the provincial  " opposition, he distinctly stated that if  " so requested he undoubtedly would as-  " sume the responsibility."  G.   R.  Ma.wvki.i,,   M.   P.,   and    mayor  Templeton of Vancouver, arrived in Nelson   on   Saturday   and   held  a  political  meeting   Monday   evening.     Jt  was not  generally known that a meeting was to  beheld.    For this reason the attendance  was  limited  to  a  couple   of dozen  men  from the coast, who were acquainted with  the visitors, and three or four merchants  of the city who got wind of the meeting  by chance.    Maxwell made a good speech  and created a very favorable impression  upon the three local merchants who heard  him for the first time.    In  the course of  his remarks he took occasion to deny the  report that he was attempting to conduct  the next provincial election upon Liberal  and Conservative  lines.    This  contradiction will be welcome news to the electors  of Kootenay.   They have their own ideas  with respect to the issues to be dealt with  in the next election, and they do not propose  that  they shall  be side-tracked in  order that the political exigencies of professional  politicians  may  be  served.    If  G. R. Maxwell's chief purpose is to secure  the overthrow of the Turner government,  he should put himself in accord with the  men who have been lighting to that end  for many years past.    As matters stand  at present, it is very evident  that these  men have not very much confidence in (.'.  li.   Maxwell.     Jt   looks  as  if they  were  afraid that Maxwell intends to take some  advantage of them.   Four years ago Maxwell worked hand in hand with the Opposition   leaders, and   to some  purpose.    If  this time he holds aloof, electors may he-  vince would be sacrificed to the personal  vanity of professed reformers.  Ix closing up a controversy with D. li'.  Young, oi the Slocan City News, the  editor of The Pioneer makes the following  close estimate of the calibre of an amateur  newspaper man, whose happiest moment  in life was reached when he dined with  minister Martin and acting government  agent Goepel: "The.Pioneer entered into  *.' a legitimate controversy with The News  " when Mr. .W. Reach Wilcox had his  '* name-at the head of its columns as it's  '"editorial manager. The disappearance  " of Mr. Wilcox's name was followed by  " the publication of the above article as a  " leading editorial. J.). R. Voting admits  " that he wrote the editorial, and as his  " business is thatof vending patent medi-  " ciu_s ou the street corners anrl not that  " of publishing a newspaper, The Pioneer  " declines to continue the controversy.  " The jiresent proprietors have put in the  ." best part of their lives at newspaper  " work and cannot afford to recognize "a  " scavenger in the handling of the I_ng-  " lish    language    as   a   legitimate    coti-  " temporary."   r-  Bepori. the next, .session of the legislature is over G. B. Martin will have reason  to regret his recenr. trip through the interior. The light air of these high altitudes has been too much for, the chief  commissioner, and has caused him to talk  through his hat. Wherever he went, the  commissioner realized chat it was necessary to square himself and he proceeded  to do so. The result has been that G. J3.  Martin has made some wonderful statements concerning legislation of the past  session, which are not in accordance with  fact. Jt is stilted that the commissioner  addressed a meeting ot the board of trade  at Kamloops, when he assured his hearers  that the subsidy granted by. the legislature for the construction of a railway  from Bute Inlet to Quesnelle could not  go to the British Pacific railway promoters. As G. B. Martin had pledged himself to the electors to oppose any cash  grant to the British Pacific railway, it  was to hi.s advantage to convince his  hearers if he could, that the promoters of  the British Pacific could not be benetic-  aries under the government's so-called,  new railway policy. It goes without saying that the commissioner will have a  chance to explain this when the house  meets again if he will remain in his seat  long enough to be challenged.  Mrs. Chaki.ottk Smith has petitioned  the United States government to send  several thousand unmarried women to  Klondyke. If this thing keeps up the  federal government will be obliged to  pass regulations respecting alien labor.  J-."stick Drake, of Victoria, sentenced  Joseph Williams to two years imprisonment for stealing a glass of beer. "A  pretty good sized 'jug' for such a small  amount of beer," is the comment of the  Grand Poi'ks Miner.  C. E. Rack, who for several months was  connected with The Miner of Nelson, has  gone over to the Rossland Miner, and will  in future write to please the members of  the Turner government and its beneficiaries. The change will rob Nelson of an  astute political organizer, and will preclude the Vancouver World from commenting upon a contemporary's bad manners. Otherwise things in the Ivootenay  will go on much the same as ever.  Tnr: municipal council of Rossland has  used up the $50,000 which the provincial  government allowed it to borrow upon  the credit of the municipality, and an attempt is now being made to induce the  ratepayers to borrow $70,000 more. The  record of the Nelson council is somewhat;  different. It has a balance on hand' of  $35,000. This is the council which a few  sore-heads assured the electors would  bankrupt the city.  When G. B. Martin was seeking election  in Yale, after being called  to the Turner  cabinet, he made a specific  promise that  he would  resign his seat in   the cabinet  rather   than   grant financial  aid  to  the  British   Pacific   Railway company.    This  pledge was given personally to the opposition  leaders, and  in consequence of it  the election of Martin  was not opposed.  During the last session of the legislature  Martin violated his pledge and supported  the  government  in  a  measure granting  $-1000 per mile to the British Pacific rail-  way for a line from Bute Inlet to Quesnelle.    In most countries the violation of  of a pledge of this nature would  relegate  a public man  to  private life, but in this  province the Turner  government subsidizes the Victoria Colonist to the extent  of   $500  per  month   for   the purpose of  whitewashing the discredited.members of  the cabinet:    The  truth  loving editor of  The Colonist makes this defence for Martin's deception :    "As  we understand the  " matter during the session of the Iegisla-  " tore, the scheme known .as the British I  1 Pacific railway was before the govern-  1 uieut,  and  Mr. Martin is said to have  1 promised not to.support it.   We do not  'understand that Mr. Martin is charged  '' with ever having given a pledge that  1 he would   oppose   aid to any railway  ' from  the coast to Cariboo.   It is quite  'true that the $1000 per-mile provided  "' for at the last session can only be drawn,  : as the law of the' province now stands.  Liy the Canada Western  Central  Railway ��� company,    which    is   popularly  known as the British Pacific; but it is  is   not   alleged   that   Mr.  Martin ever  promised to vote against aid being given  to that company.    Mr. Martin  fulfilled  any promise he ever made in regard'to  the British   pacific,  and  it is- literally  true that the subsidy of $1000 per mile  has   nothing   to   do, with   the British-  Pacific scheme."  SLOCAN   MINING-   NOTES.  The new ore bins and tramway for the  Lucky Jim are completed and the cable  will be stretched in a. few days, when the  mine will be ready to resume the shipping  of ore. The ore will go to the Pilot Bay  smelter.  The ruth has received one carload of  the machinery for the new "i-drill compressor, which has been delivered at the  mine, the balance of the shipment being  expected every day. With the force of  men now employed, the mine is sending  down .'30 tons of ore per day.

Death ol' a Lieutenant Recalls Trying Scenes  in  the Lives of the Sons of George III.  The announcement a day or two ago in  the Official  Gr/.ette of  the death of  Edward    Kit/,   Clarence,   lieutenant   in   an  ordinary  foot   regiment   of  the   English  army, iy my excuse  for recalling one of  the 'many romances connected  with  the  illegal marriages of her majesty's uncle--,  writes Ascor in  the New York Mail and  l.xpres-.    fii_-i few lines the Ga/etle mentions  that   the liuinetian_   wtis   killed   at  Abu   flamed in   a  skirmish  with   Arabs,  and adds that he  was the son of the late  honorable George Fit/.-CIarence, and cousin to the earl of Minister.    But   for  the  I-Joyal JNIarriuge Act passed by George 111.,  which,   for   dynastic   reasons,    rendered  null and  void  the marriage of the then  duke   of   Clarence,  afterwards   William  IV., with   the lady subsequently known  as Mrs. Jordan, the young lieutenant just  killed   in  action   would   be described  a.s  "royal highness," all the courts of Europe  would be ordered into mourning by their  respective  monarchs. .columns   of  toady  obituary   would   appear   in   the  London  papers, and a warship would bring home  the   remains   for   interment   with  royal  pom]) and spectacle.  Lieutenant Edward Fitz-CIarence was  of nearer and clearer royal English blood  than any of the present members of the  reigning family, except her majesty and  lier cousins, the dukes of Cambridge and  Cumberland. Me died a humble lieutenant of foot and possessed of au income  which barely sufliced to pay for his mess  and uniforms, and yet he was -the great  grandson of William IV., and is legitimately so as far as the laws ot* marriage  ���governing the Protestant Episcopal church  could make him.  George III had several sons, of Whom  two succeeded him on the throne���George  IV. and William IV. Three years before  the death of the old king the princess  Charlotte, only daughter of the prince  regent and heiress to the throne, died.  It. then suddenly dawned upon parliament  that there were"no other royal children  in the rightful line of succession. It was  already law in England that.marriages ot  princes and princesses of the blood in the  direct line of succession must be made  with persons of royal blood equal to their  own, and, despite the fact that the dukes  of Clarence, Cambridge, Kent and Sussex  hail already contracted unions duly sanctified, by the rites of the church to ladies  not of the rank of royal pi incesses. their  marriages were declared void. Within a  few weeks each of these dukes was remarried to a German princess, the result  in the case of the duke of Kent being the  birth of her present majesty, queen Victoria.  The duke of Clarence who succeeded to  the throne as William TV. in 1830, became  the father of several children by his Ger-.  man spouse, subsequently .known as queen  Adelaide, but all died in infancy. King  William's affection never diminished Ior  the children which came to him by his  morgantic wife, and, although i'or dynastic reasons, his four sons���natural sons,  as they were termed���could not be recognized as princes, he determined to make  them at least noblemen, and accordingly  created the eldest, George, baron Tewkesbury, viscount Fitz-CIareuee and earl of  Minister, and gave him the surname of  Kite-Clarence. The younger sons were  given;.the courtesy prefix of "lord."  The eldest son of the first earl of Mtiti-  Munsler is the present holder of the title,  and his brother was the father of the  young lieutenant whose death has just  been announced. The king left biit a  very small fortune to his morgantic children, consequently the earldom of Minister  is but poorly dowered, and the present  peer is even unprovided with a country  seat, and lives in an unpretentious residence in Brighton. One of his sons has  been given the comparatively humble  position of "gentleman usher" to her  majesty. Besides lord Minister, only one  of the other sons of William IV. left issue���the late lord Augustus Fitz-Clareuce,  who is survived by one son and half a  dozen grandchildren, all living in genteel  obscurity in London. It. is curious to  consider the position of these descendants  of the queen's predecessor in comparison  with that held by the queen's own children, and yet the descendants of William  IV., as I said before, were born in legitimate wedlock and are of the act ual paternal blood of the present dynasty. The  prince of Wales and his brothers and  sisters are, properly speaking, of the  house of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, and not of  the house of Hanover.  And so, had he the rights which the  E-iablished Church of England is stip-  po.-fd to secure to marriage, the young  soldier who died lighting in Egypt would  not have been a simple lieutenant of infantry, but a colonel or more in  one of  the crack regiments of guards, the knight  of a dozen orders of European chivalry,  and a royal highness in direct succession'  to the throne. He had, by the way, a  twin brother, Charles, one minute older  by birth, and also a lieutenant of one of  the regiments of the line. The arms of  the Fitz-Clarences are the royal arms of,  England, but "debruised by, a baton sinister, azure, charged with three anchors  or." The bar sinister is the heraldic sign  ot" illegitimacy, but has never been regarded as a dishonor in England when it  has. crossed the royal firms. Four English peers of the highest rank display the'  bar prominently on their shields. The  Kitz-Clarence motto is "Neither Rashly  Nor Fearfully," and the three anchors on  their shield is in sympathy with the fact  that William IV. served for many years  in the English navy prior to ascending  the throne.  WOMAN   SLAVERY.  Salt Lake Tribune:   Periodically since  18-10,  the  press   ea-t and   west have bewailed the buying and selling of wretched  Chinese women in San  Erancisco.    It is a  pitiable   business;   only   a grade  higher  than that carried on among the barbarous  and naked  native-* of Africa.    But those  women  always.have been slaves.    They  were bought,iu Hong Kong for ,.20 each  for the very  purpose for which they are  used, and with the consent of their parents.    They suffered no sense of shame or  outrage;   neither   their, intellectual   nor  moral natures were shocked iu the least,  for neither had ever been quickened,    hi  point of fact, the change was an advance  for them, for it secured them better food,  better clothing���more comforts, than they  ever knew before.  They simply represent'  the degradation which settles upon a race  when it for hundreds if not thousands of  years is compelled to  make a daily fight  with want which periodically culminates  in famine.    It  is  natural,  probably, for  the   good   men   who   preside    over   our  churches in   the east, and  for  the  good  women    and    men    who    attend    those  churches,  and  who conscientiously  subscribe  large sums  to home and .foreign  missions,.to be shocked to learn of such  things   going on   in   our country,  right  under the flag that so many brave men  died under that men might be free, and  that the poor might have ampler opportunities to better their conditions.  But are we so much iu advance of those  wretched Chinese after all? * We have  clung to a system of finance for twenty-  four years which has resulted doubling  the ratio of women of our own race, who  in that same way go down to death. La-t  season very many of the clergymen of  New Vork city took it upon themselves  to advise their congregations how to vote.  They fancied Lhey were doing right because the very richest pew holders in  their churches approved of what they  did. True, they knew nothing of what  was pending in the election; they had not  the slightest com prehension ofthe mighty  issue, but from a superficial view they  concluded that some bad men were seeking to repudiate honest debts by statute,  and that as Christian ministers their duty  pointed directly to a protest. , So busy  were they that they never once stopped  to think that something had been inaugurated which-made'it impossible for thousands of American girls to earn honest  livings, aud that twenty thousand of  them, light iu New York City, were annually turning to lives of shame in order  to obtain bread and clothing. These are  not Chinese girls, brought up with no  knowledge of life's oroperties, no sense of  shame, without having the germs of their  moral natures in the least quickened, but  American girls, reared tenderly in American homesw- educated in American free,  schools, and led to look forward to happy  and honest lives. While this is going on  with annually increased momentum, does  it become us to cry our eyes out over the  fate of some wretched human animals  who are mere creatures of commerce in  San Francisco?  Human nature can only bear a certain  strain. We are told that the coal miners  who started the great strike, which is  still on, were receiving .1*7.50 per month  for their labor. If they had daughters  who were young women, and if they were  proud American girls, how long could  they bear that di-tress? And where were  they to go? When, in a land like this  2,000,000 men are tramps because they  cannot, find employment, what must become of the 2,000,000 women whom they  ought to be supporting?  After all, Americans .ought not to cry  over some Chinese women in San Francisco  who are contented with their lot: they  should save their' tears for their own  countrywomen.

An eastern paper says that a London  woman has been killed in the crush at a  bargain sale at which twenty-two policemen were employed to hold the crowd in  check. The verdict of the coroner's jury  was: " Deceased died from synocope  caused by the exertion and excitement of  getting into a bargain sale, and that such  death was due to natural causes." That  was a discerning jury. They did not find  that the woman was crushed, but that the  fatal syncope came as she was trying to  get into the place. They realize that she  might have seen the woman who lives  across the street from her get the very  bargain which she had set her heart on,  and after that, in her judgment, life was no  longer worth living. Or possibly the impossibility of gettiug in at all '.vhen all  the other women were getting bargains  was too much for her, and hence that her  death was due to "natural causes" was  the most probable thing in the world.

The Athabasca made another shipment  of 28 tons to the Hall Minos smelter on  Tuesday. It i.s thought that, the ore will  .run close upon $100 to the ton.  Peter Costello, the Kossland contractor  who assaulted l.dward Cronyn while the  latter was endeavoring to secure evidence  i'or ti cni'Diusr's jury, will come up for trial  at the court of 'assi/.e, which will be convened here next month. Considerable  interest litis been worked into this case  by reason nf- thu tilt between judge Forin  aiid t.he Jto-iland .Miner. The assault  took place in Ro.-i.-sbi.nd. and Tlie Miner  having satisfied itself that, the assault  was a brutal one, said so and furnished a  somewhat uncomplimentary sketch of  Peter Costello. For this the newspaper  was taken to task by judge Form when  ��� the prisoner was arraigned before him.  The judge expressed the opinion that the  newspaper wtis traveling beyond its province. The editor then practically' retorted that, he probably knew more about  running a. newspaper than llie judge, and  that he would exercise his own discretion  with respect to what he published.  John Cillus got on a drunk Wednesday  night and raised a row at the Grand  Ceutralhotel. For throwing a stone at  Charles Ci.'Hawley. magistrate Crease on  Thursday assessed him SIO and costs, and  for being drunk he paid an additional  $2.50.  Ole Roe. a .Swede, caused a disturbance  on Hall street on Tuesday by being drunk.  He was assessed $2 by magistrate Crease  on Wednesday.  Hong, the Chinaman employed by the  Club  in the Carney block, was fined $5  and costs by magistrate Crease on Tuesday for depositing slops and filth in the  rear of the Carney block. The case has  been appealed.  Dr. Metherell of A'ancouver, Nelson  &��� Fort Sheppard railway physician  during construction, has got into trouble  by reason of the death of a patient, Mary  Piper. The coroner's jury, after an enquiry into tlie causes of the woman's  death, returned the following verdict:  "The said Mary Piper came to her death  from the effects of poison administered or  taken in the office of Dr. Metherell, on  the 29th day of August, 1897, while under  the professional care of Dr. Metherell;  and we would recommend to the proper  authorities that an investigation be held,  touching the habits aud mental responsibility of the said Dr. Metherell, with the  view to ascertain whether he is at all  times a safe and proper person to be entrusted as a medical practitioner."  An auction sale of the household effects  of John W. Carwiu will be held by Charles  A. Waterman'& Co., on Saturday next at  the corner 'of .Stanley, and Observatory  streets. This sale Avill afford the people  of Nelson an opportunity to purchase furniture upon which the freight has been  paid.  The recently established government  organ, The Economist, trys toinake it appear that Nelson, is vent by factions and  cliques. The best proof,that this,.'is untrue is the fact that whenever the people  of Nelson have been called on to decide  questions of moment they have been  pretty unanimous. Iu 1894 they cast 188  votes for J. Fred Hume for member of  the legislative assembly as against 72 i'or  his opponent. In lS9(i they "broke even"  in.the election'for member of the house of  commons. In 1897 they cast 299 votes for  John Houston for mayor as against 205  for his opponent.-' On all questions that  concern the welfare of the town, there is  a unanimity that even the provincial government heeds. For instance, the position taken on the squatter and location  of the provincial goal questions.  OF HOUSEHOLD EFFECTS  John W.
