 !&&-?$'&:/&���:  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  KELSON:  MONDAY MORNING JULY 9  J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  MEDICAL SERVICE SCANDAL  Discussed by a Correspondent.  New York, .Inly 8.���In his  London  cable  to   this   morning's Tribune, I. N. Ford, in his discussion of  t lie alleged inefficiency of the medi-  c'll, surgical and hospital sei'vice iu  South Africa, takes occasion to pay  a high tribute to the  valor  of the  Canadian    contingent.      He says:  "jMi". Balfour blundered in appointing two doctors  and  a lawyer, all  three Unionists, on the  commission  for reporting on the arrangements  for the sick and wounded.    A commission of three  might have  answered:' if- a   conspicuous   business  mini or a-rail way director had been  substituted for one of the  doctors;  ns it is Mr..Balfour must now  rely  on but two apostles of the  gospel  of   common   sense.      Lord  Lands-  downe has  not been  a.  great  war  minister, bnt it  is  surprising  that  he should..have, made so stupid a  :.mistake as the recommendation of  so   unsatisfactory    a    commission.  The war ollice  is greatly  indebted  to the colonics  for  the  loyal support received during the campaign,  and this fact ought to have been a  safeguard against .underrating the  importance   of   the   charge   made  ay.iinst the medical service.  "The Canadian contingents, for  example, whicli have fought most  gallantly and endured cheerfully  their privation?, have suffered  heavily from fever and dysentry.  lam told that as many as 500 Canadians were in the hospital  at one time. The British  government can hardly expect the  cn'ouials to volunteer for future  spi'vice for the empire unless there  arc assurances of an efficient medical as well as surgical service.  "William Burdett-Coutts ancl the  'Times may have had motives of  ���their own for bringing the medical  :scandal to light, but when it was  once done Mr. Balfour ought to  have known iutuitively that ��� the  government's obligations to tho  English people aud to the loyal colonies .required a thorough investigation of tho whole matter by a  ��� competent commission.  'The debate over the hospital  spi vice has been taken up by the  cliques and factions into Avhich the  west end is divided on military  matters. There has been much  heartburning and wrangling among  the sympathizers witli the Alder-  shot ring since lord Roberts succeeded sir Redvers Buller, and Mr.  .'Burdette Coubbs has enabled the  ���������friends of the various victims of  ."Boer strategy to set their tongues  ���wagging* ab the expense of the com-  ���mauder of the army . in South  Africa. Sir Henry Colville, who  lins been ordered to return to England, is a guards general, with a  large circle of friends in the world  -of-fashion-^���nis���retirement���is���nob-  yet explained, but his cause has already been taken up by social  champions as the grievances of  general Gatacre, general Buller and  colonel Gough have been.  'Senior oflicers have fared badly  during the campaign and some of  them have been transformed by  their admirers into martyrs and  heroes. A secret history of the  war from lord Roberts' pen would  be a book well worth reading, and  some disclosures of this kind may  be necessary before any great  scheme of army reform can be  carried out. When one listens to  the complaints of favoritism and  injustice with wliich the social aud  military cliques are ringing, one  wonders how the discontent in  higher positions of the army can  jover be allayed."  I reported to have declined to obey  prince Titan's orders to seize Nankin. Further dispatches from  Shang-Hai say the legations were  holding out on July 3rd, that the  rebels had been repulsed with a loss  of 2000, and that the Boxers were  discouraged. They also report that  a Chinese journal confirms the announcement of prince Ching's counter revolution in Pekin.  BRITAIN HAS THREE WARS  Fighting at Tien-Tsin.  "London, July 8.���A dispatch  If rom Tien-Tsin dated July .3rd,  j'ays; "Since early morning the  Chinese have heavily bombarded  the settlements. Admiral Seymour has ordered the women, and  children to be conveyed to Taku at  the earliest possible moment."  Counter-Eevolution in Pekin.  Brussels, July 8.���A dispatch  from Shang-Hai received here says,  according to a high Chinese official,  ���the two legations, which were still  '-holding out on July 2nd, were the  objects, of incessant attacks. There  had been. some losses among the  troops guarding the legations, but  the diplomatists were safe. The  dispatch says the loyal troops under prince Ching, who is  ���h oading a counter revolution,  had attacked the rebels in Pekin.  The governor of Shang Tung, ac-  ��� c ording to the same authority, is  Progress of Affairs.  New York, July 8.���Sir Frederick Hodgson's column from Kumassi is expected at Cape Coast  Castle tomorrow afternoon after an  .arduous march. The relief expedition under colonel Wileoeks wHl  reach its destination by the end of  another week, and, unless all signs  fail, will succeed in pacifying the  country, and .averting the necessity  for another little war.  The situation in China is black  enough to blacken the whole sky.  The best thing that can be said is  that the ��� destruction of the legations and the slaughter of foreigners have not been officially announced, and are not known with  certainty. This horror of great darkness would be sufficiently appalling  in 'any'circumstances,' and England  is peculiarly oppressed by it on account of her own helplessness in so  awful a crisis. With more than  200,000 soldiers still actively employed in South Africa, she cannot  exert herself with the energy and  resources commensurate with either  . the crisis or her own position in  Christendom, but must invite an  Asiatic power like Japan to take  the lead, and content herself wibh  conciliating Russia in every possible way. China would be a less  horrible nighbmare if the British  were prepared to act with decision  and authority.  - The campaign in South Africa, is  clearing slowly. A ' combined  movement agaiust Dewet's. four  c'ommandoesjsdn progress but the  scheme of ^development is on so  large a scale that gaps will probably be left by which they will  escape.  Paget is within striking distance  of Bethlehem, with Clements behind him. Brabant's force has  been shifted bo Senekal where ib  can cooperate wibh Paget, Rundle  holds positions in the south towards  Ficksburg, Methuen is in reserve at  Paardeberg Kraal on. the west,  Hunter's division, with MaeDonald's  brigade, is at Frankfort and an unknown column, probably from Standerton, is marching toward Vrede.  The co-operation of so many  columns leaves many chances for  mishaps, especially when each is  dependent .upon convoys for supplies. The press here is probably  preparing itself for disappointment  -when-ib"assumes-thafr-Dewet's=force-  will be entrapped and compelled bo  surrender. What is likely to occur  is the occupation of Vrede and  Bethlehem after Frankfort, and the  narrowing of the sphere of the  Boer operations to the district between Harrismith and the mountains, but Deweb is a good soldier,  and may have some effecbive  counter-stroke.  Guerrilla Avarfare is not easily  ended. One town after another  may be occupied and garrisoned,  but the hostile forces will have a  considerable range in tho mountain  districts, and will bo constantly  subdivided and broken up into  smaller bauds. Steyn will probably be hunted down in the mountain passes in the course of a few  weeks. Botha is held off temporarily in the Transvaal until Dewet's  commandoes can be dispersed.  With double lines of railway  communication with Pretoria,  transport difficulties are largely obviated, except in the mountain dis-  ti'icbs which have become cenbers of  guerrilla warfare.  *  Conger's Last Report.  Washington, July 8.���The last  Chiua mail to reach the state department brought the report of  minister Conger, perhaps the last  that will ever come to hand. This  bears,date of Pekin, May 21st. Ib  is of the utmost importance, disclosing as it does a full comprehension on the part of the foreign ministers in Pekin of the character of the Boxer uprising.  Mr Conger makes it very clear that  at leasb one. and probably all bhe  European nations having interests  in northern China, were acquainted  with the dangers of the situation  at least two or three weeks before  the actual outbreak in Pekin.  OUTPUT OF KOOTENAY MINES  For the Month of June.  The press of East Kootenay are  much elated over the prospects of  that section, now bhat these camps  are making regular shipments of  ore. In mining, the one thing that  attracts attention is output, and if  the output of the mines of East  Kootenay is properly brought to  the attention of the people who  have money to risk in mining ventures, there is no good reason why  that section of the province should  not have its share.of prosperity.  During the month of June the  North" Star and Sullivan mines  shipped 130 carloads of clean ore,  and the St. Eugene shipped 1800  tons of concentrates. Estimating a  carload at 22 tons, the value of the  Ore arid concentrates will not be far  from a quarter of a million dollars.  Although The Tribune has not  accurate data on which to base an  estimate, it is within bounds to  state that the output of the mines  in East and West Kootenay during  the month of June totalled $900.-  000 in value.  the divide or not, but the .son  crossed the United States as fast as  through trains would carry him,  and is now, it is said, in Mexico. Ib  is said that gambling is the cause  of his fin;,    ial troubles.  Well.  Two Copper Mines.  C. B. Strong aud G. M. A. Nichols,  two Spokane mining men, are staying at the Phair hotel.     They are  on their way to the Boundary   to  look up some mining .properties in  which they are interested.   Among  these is the Reservation group, sib-  uabed on the international boundary line about eight miles  west of  Grand Forks.   The reservation is a  copper proposition, and   carries a  great deal of high grade ore, numerous specimens of native copper  having   been   obtained.     A great  deal of work has been done on the  property,  and a  large - amount of  ore blocked out.   The ore averages  10 per cent'copper, and--shipments  are now being regularly made. The  ore is hauled to. Grand Forks by  wagon road and thence by rail. Mr.  Sbrong is also a director   of   the  Britannia Copper Mining Company,  . operating the Britannia-group sitiir:  abed about 28 miles north of Vancouver.    The Britannia group is an  immense low grade copper proposition having, Mr. Strong says, an ore  body 000   feet   wide.     Chutes of  higher grade ore occur, but the ore  averages,   according   to   extensive  tests, about  $i0 a ton.     As the  property possesses every facility for  cheap mining and treatment in the  shape of unlimited timber, water  power, with cheap  coke to.be obtained from Vancouver Island across  the straits, Mr. Strong anticipates  that the Britannia will ere long become a big dividend payer.  A Dam Gave Way.  A costly accident occurred at the  Athabasca mine on Saturday when  the dam which impounded the tailings from the mill broke and allowed  "tailings vaIued~at~$T500_to run into  Giveout creek. The company contemplates the installation of a  cyanide plant to recover the values  from the tailings, and ib was estimated bhat the contents of the clam  would aboub pay for the plant.  A Second Brick From the Venus.  Dr. Doolittle brought down a  second gold brick from tho Venus  mill ou Saturday night. The mill  has been shut down for a week or  so. A set of rolled sbeel balls has  been ordered in New York for the  mill to replace bhose now in use,  which have uot given satisfaction.  Good Strike near Sanca.  Word comes from Sanca that 2_  feet of $80 galena ore has been  struck in a tunnel in the Buena  Vista claim, situate about a mile  and a half from that place. The  tunnel is in 46 feet, and the strike  has been drifted on eight feeb.  The properby is owned by Messrs.  Riddle of Pilot Bay and Martel and  Ginol of Sanca.

London, July 8.���The unexpected  release of 800 British prisoners  taken in the Free Sbabe is taken as  a good indication that the campaign in Soubh Africa is drawing bo  an end, and that some of the broops  there may speedily be spared for  service in China.  RAPID TRANSIT UNKNOWN  To Superintendents of Mails,  No civilized people on earth have  so poor a mail service as  southeastern KoObenay,   yet no people  deserve better of their government.  The trouble is that the postoffice  deparbmenb   cannot   be   made   to  uudersband   bhat mails should be  forwarded by the shorbest routes  and by bhe mosb speedy conveyances, and the officials of the deparbmenb    never    will   be    made  understand until British Columbia  is represenbed in parliament by men  who   will   go   to the   postmaster-  ganeral   and   damn   him  in plain'  English, then knock him down and  trample on him until he admits that  he is a be whiskered faddist, who  knows   nothing   whatever of any  secbion of Canada other than that  which is wibhin bhe boundary lines  of York counby, Ontario.   The following is  from the Trail News of  Saturday:  ���  Since the summer "fast service"  schedule has been in  effect  in the  Kootenays,   Trail   has   obtained a  mail service unequaled anywhere in  the    Dominion.      ��� Mails   for    the  United States and Eastern Canada  leave this  place at 6 p.m. and lies  in Rossland 21 hours.   A passenger  can go to any Boundary  point  in  seven hours, yet it  takes  the mail  30 hours to go  the same distance.  It is in the Nelson service,chowever,  that   the   postal  authorities  have  excelled   themselves.      They   evidently   think'  that    mail    matter  from this city is of no importance;  In order to get a letter to Nelson  one must post it before 7:35 a.m., at  which hour it leaves here for Robson.   After such a long journey it  takes a rest until 0  p.m., finally arriving" at   Nelson   after  beiug  12  hours on the way.    When  it is remembered that Nelson is about 40  miles from Trail and it   takes a  passenger three hours to travel  on  either of the three   trains   which  .leave daily, we certainly ought to  congratulate ourselves on the- way  the superintendent sees fib to  treat  our mail service.    A  letber  travels  at the rate of three miles an  hour  in   this   part   of   the   Kootenays.

New York, July 3.���The~foreign  office gave out last night a "reassuring dispatch from the acting consul  at. Shang-Hai, which stated that  two embassy houses were still  standing as late as Tuesday. The  information was vouched for as  coming from a thoroughly trustworthy source, and tended to prove  that the legations had made an unexpectedly effective defence against  the besiegers. Thousands of Chinese assailants had fallen, and the  attack had slackened owing to  these heavy losses. The official dispatch held out hope that the legations conld remain on the defensive  for some time ft supplies of ammunition and food did "not fail. This  favorable news may have a marked  effect upon the foreign relief force  massed at Tien-Tsin. A strenuous  effort may be made to send a column to the capital in a last desperate attempt to rescue  the garrison.  This unexpected - information  offered a marked contrast to the  early press dispatches from Shang-  Hai and the Che-Foo, in wliich the  massacre of foreigners at Pekin was  described in detail, and the atrocities ordered by prince Tuan were  fully set forth. Other belated despatches described the experiences  of sir Rpberb Hart's messengers in  reaching'Tien-Tsin, and the alarming situation in Manchuria, where  the Chinese were advancing_on New-  Chwang, and valuable^, missionary  property haVbeen'destYoyed.- ��� "���"'  The official despatch tends to discredit all information coming from  Chinese sources, and to encourage  hope that the legations may hold  out until assistance is sent them.  The Japanese governmenb is reporb-  ed to have expressed ibs willingness  to send a division at once to China  if the emergency is so pressing.  Ib is nob considered probable bhat  Russia will offer any resisbence to  the practical measure for reinforcing the foreigners ab Tien-Tsin and  dispatching a relief column to  Pekin.  -J. M.

The courier mentioned in consul  Warren's dispatch gives a sbrange  picture, says the Daily Mail's Shang-  Hai correspondent, of how life  josbles death in Pekin : "Business  apparently goes on as usual. The  shops and theatres are open and the  streets are full of people. No imperial troops except those of general  Tung Fuh Siang took part in the  fighbing. They did more looting."  The courier asserts jjositively  that provisions are being supplied  the legations bub by whom he does  not say.  The Boxers aud general Tung  Fuh Siang do nob get along well.  The Boxers assert that they do all  the fighbing and the latter's men  all the looting and nothing else.  General Kwan Shi Kai, governor of Shan Tung, the correspondent of the Daily Mail avers, predicts that by July 11 the Boxers will  disband and negotiations will be  begun for peace.

It?'i  F  i ^  I **  \k'>  I  Minister Blair is making the Intercolonial railway pay.    In doing  this he has done more than any  other Canadian   in demonstrating  ... the advantage of state-owned railways.   Heretofore,  whenever government ownership of railways was  suggested, the   experience   of the  .government with the Intercolonial  railway was cited, and its deficits  referred to as the only possible outcome from railways   operated  by  the . government.    This   'will   hot:  happen again.    Minister Blair has  demonstrated  that   when   government railways fail to pay operating  expenses, ib is more likely to be the  fault of the government operating  it than the read.   Under Conservative management the deficits on the  Intercolonial ranged  from half a  million per  annum down.    Under  the lasb year of minister Blair's direction, in place of a deficit, there  is a surplus of $120,000.   And it is  worth  remembering  that this has  been made   out   of   the increased  traffic, and not out of the workmen.  This surplus is what remains of the  earnings after spending $175,000 additional in wages and making liberal allowance for maintenance.  The government ownership fad  should be decidedly popular from  this on.       The   Victoria  Colonist and the  Nelson Miner are  much exercised  over the voters' lists of the Nelson  and Slocan ridings of West Kootenay.    Ib seems that the  voters  of  these two ridings voted wrong ab  the last election.    Instead of voting  in sufficient number to elect  the  candidates nominated or endorsed  by   the Conservative party,  they  rolled up big  majorities  for R. F.  Green and  John Houston,  both  of  whom   are opposed to  the introduction   of   party-line  politics    in  provincial affairs until the present  gang of political bosses are dead  polibically. ��� -The Colonist and the  Miner, were they honest in making  an   effort    for   fair   voters'   lists,  would not  single  out Nelson  and  Slocan ridings as examples.     The  lists of these two  ridings  are just  as fair as the lists of any other  ridings or districts in the province.  The only way in which lists can be  kept fair, is to require voters to  register for each election.    Thirty  : days should be allowed for registration, and the registering officers  should be required to sit at designated places to receive the applications of persons qualified to  go on  the lists.    There are names of men  on.the Nelson list who have been  out of the.country for years, yet  when courts of   revision  are  held,  the revising officer does not care to  take upon himself authority to re  open again. Public gambling is no  benefit to any town, however much  it may be to the advantage of the  few who profit by it. Ab Nelson,  what is known as "banking games "  have never been allowed, and  " sure thing devices," like nickle-in-  bhe-slob machines, were stopped  after a six-months' run. Yet, what  town in the province has been so  continuously prosperous ?  Alex Stewart  Room 3, Turner & Boech Block.  NELSON.  Wholesale  Houses  NELSON  B.C.

What Nelson has won  in that direction can be won iu another direction, if only her people  make an intelligent and persistent  effort. Southeastern British Columbia should have a recognized  center for tho men engaged iu the  mining industry. No other place  has so many points in its favour,  such as location, capital, smelting  faeilibies, ebc. Nelson should be bo  southeasbern British Columbia what  Spokane is to eastern Washington  and northern Idaho.  move the names from the list.  Often, too, the revising officer is not  well acquainted with the people of  his riding, and if he is a fair-minded  official he hesitates to remove names  at the demand of political henchmen  and hirelings. The attempts made  in Nelson aud Slocan ridings to  strike off names already on and  keep off names fairly entitled to go  on were not done in the public interest, but in the interest of an  association of disgruntled mine  .managers and a gang of "crooked"  politicians. , The scheme failed,  hence the wailings over unfair  voters' lists by the two newspapers  named above.   This newspaper mouthpieces of  the defeated ones do not like the  idea of the Kootenay and Yale  members of the legislative assembly  voting as a.unit. Notwithstanding,  they will so vote. There will be a  "solid nine," and the two interior  districts of ..the, province will no  longer play second fiddle to either  Victoria or Vancouver.

Tragedy clogs the footsteps of the  foreign ministers of czar Nicholas II.  His first foreigu minister, prince  J^VLobanoir, died in an instant from a  ^J'spasm of the heart by the side of  Lr'tlio railroad, wheu traveling to  meet the German emperor at Bre-  slau. Now the Reaper has smitten  down without warning count Muravieff, tho present czar's second  1/ foreign minister. Thus again, within tiie space of four years, that high  office at St. Petersburg, wliich exer-  c"..?es so potent an influence over the  ]i",*ice of Europe, stands vacant.  Four four months after the death  of prince Lobanoff a successor was  ir>t appointed. In January, 1897,  to the astonishment of tho world at  "large, the czar nominated the  llussian ambassador at Copenhagen,  count Michael Muravieff, to the  ministry of foreign affairs.  Count Muravieff was then in his  second year. "Muravel" signifies in  llussian "an ant," and the proverbial characteristics of the industrious insect havo marked the car-  l'-l's of many jMuravieil's, notably of  tlio statesman who lies dead today.  Count Muravieff's mother is a  G iriiiaa lady, the daughter of Von  1'ijsen, a former secretary of state,  said to have been of Jewish extrac-  " tion. She is still alive. Russia's  future foreign minister graduated  mb the university of Heidelberg, and  became a perfect German scholar.  ,Iu appearance count Muravieff  was a typical Russian. "A man of  middle height, of slight figure, with  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  thin features and firm expression, a  grey, almost white moustache, turned up at the ends, and hair to match  at the sides and back of the head"  ���so M. de Blowitz, the Paris correspondent of The Times, described  him, as he steped from the train on  his famous visit to Paris in 1897,  directly after his elevation.  Count Muravieff persevered in the  policy initiated by prince Lobanoff.  He schemed and schemed deeply, in  order; to strengthen 'Russia and to  increase her material resources.  When at the Copenhagen embassy  he is said to have observed, "As  Russia caii better develop herself  amid the blessings of peace, and as  she increases more quickly than any  other state, so she will overtop all  others if only the opportunity is  offered to her to wait silently in  j-eace and tranquility."  Silently in peace and tranquility _  the  Bear  waits.    Waits,  but does j  not staud still.' Ever it prowls for- i  ward till, the  war clouds  gather-  Then waits again; waits till   the  clouds  scatter,   and   again   moves;  forward.    I n China, in Central Asia,  iu Persia, in Abyssinia���this   has  been    Russia's   persistent   foreign-  policy..   - -   .  Count Muravieff enjoyed the high 1  and peculiar privilege of being- a'  popular person at the Danish conrt _  ���that court where European policies are discussed en famille. His  selection by the czar is attributable  to this circumstance. The story  goes that when at the end of 1896  Nicholas' II. was staying at Copenhagen, the dowager empress spoke  highly of the opinions held by the  ambassador. - So the czar ordered  these opinions to be put in writing,  and count Muravieff prepared an  elaborate report on the European  situation, which appeared to imperial eyes possessed of high merit.  This report, it is said, the czar  showed to the prince of Wales for  his opinion, and the prince, with his  nephew's sanction, handed it to  lord  Salisbury, who expressed the  Imperial Bank of Canada  .

A Russian foreign minister is a  very different being to an English  foreign minister. The former is accountable to no parliament; his doings are beyond criticism; he is the  czar's other self, and so long as he  conducts a policy which is acceptable to the throne he is ^diplomatic  autocrat. Count Murayieff's first  act was, to visit France, to keep  bright the flame of friendship that  Had flared so lustily when the emperor and empress of all the Russias  had been the guests of M. Felix  Faure a few months before. "Having by order of his majesty the emperor arrived in this beautiful  country of France,, so dear to my  entire fatherJand, I have been  happy to make your acquaintance  and to enter into personal relations  ���with, you, my. dear colleague, if you  permit me to call you so. I raise  :my glass to drink your health, convinced that the close relations existing between our two countries  will remain, as in the past, the best  guarantee of peace."  In these words," softer than butter, the count toasted M. Hanotaux,  the foreign minister of France, in  January, 1897. In June, .1900, the  close relations between the two  countries continue outwardly, but  that blazing enthusiasm has burnt  itself out, and has. left behind���  what? Ashes and a -sore heart.  For France has I reaped little from  an'alliance with a nation whose  jninister had determined on peace.  Count Muravieff has interfered as  little as might be, in eastern Europe. He asserted the predominance of St. Petersburg in the Balkan states, but he refused to absorb Armenia. Turkey has not  been allowed aggrandisement, but  there have been no designs .on the  integrity of its dominions. The  ���eastern question is overshadowed'  loy the far eastern question. Better  peace and Port Arthur than Constantinople and Armageddon.  In Russia count Muravieff's policy has been crowned with high  success, due in no small measure to  the extraordinary ability of count  Pavloff, the Pekin minister and Mu-  ravieff's ardent disciple. Russia is  today supreme in sManclmria, even  as she is supreme in northern Persia. His triumph in central and  eastern Asia during a brief trien-  nium of power has assured for the  dead statesman immortality in the  annals of his empire.  Count Muravieff has worked for  peace, not for the peace of the  world, but for the peace of his  fatherland���a period of tranauil-  lity to be passed in preparation for  war.

The supreme court of Montana  has rendered a decision definitely  settling the question of what constitutes annual assessment work on  quartz "claims.      ��|  The case was entitled G. W. Penn,  et al., against Clans Oldhauber.  It came from Deer Lodge county  and was a suit in ejectment brought  to recover possession of a quartz  lode known as the Blue Bell. The  defendent alleged that neither the  plaintiff nor had any of them performed $100 worth of work during  1895, and that if any of them |had  any right in the property such failure had resulted in the forfeiture  of the light. The case was tried  without a jury and the counsel on  the respective sides agreed that  the only issue to be tried or upon  which testimony would be introduced was : " Did the owners of  the Blue Bell mentioned in the  complaint do or cause to be done  $100 worth of work' on the claim  during 1895? " The right of appeal  to the supreme court was reserved  on both sides. The lower, court  found that the plaintiffs had not  performed $100 worth of work upon the claim in 1895 and that therefore the Blue Bell was subject to  relocation. The lower court also  held [that testimony concerning  the rules and customs in the district court in which the property  in. dispute is situated, as to the  number of days that constitute  $100 worth of work, was inadmissible. From the judgment in favor  of the defendant, the appeal to the  supreme court washad."J,.Mr justice  Word affirms the action of the  lower court, and in doing so enters  exhaustively iuto the law governing assessment work on mining  claims.    In'his opinion he says:  "In the progress of the trial certain of plaintiff's witnesses were  each asked in substance the question: 'Do you know what were the  rules and customs among miners in  that district (meaning the district  in which the Blue Bell lode was located) as to the number of days'  work that constituted a hundred  dollars' worth of work ?' The answer in each instance was substantially: 'Yes, 20 days' work.' To  this question, whenever asked, the  defendant's counsel objected on the  ground that the same was incompetent, irrelevant and immaterial,  for the reason that the rules and  'custbms'asto'tne'number^f^jjyg'  work that constituted $100 worth  of work is not .the standard by  which-'the value of the work done  upon a mining claim'* should be  measured. .. The court admitted  this evidence subject to defendant's  objection, but afterwards excluded  it from consideration on the ground  that it was incompetent. This ruling of the court is the only error  assigned by appellants and upon  which they ask a reversal of the  case.  "The appellants contend that in  the year 1895 there was "in existence in- the district, in which the  property in controversy is situated  a custom to the effect that 20 days'  work performed upon a claim satisfied the requirements of section  2324 revised statutes of the United  States as-to annual work, and that  evidence of such custom was admissible under section 1321 of the  code of civil procedure, statutes of  Montana.  "Section 2324, revised statutes of  the United States, among other  things provides that the miners of  each mining district may make  regulations not in conflict with the  laws of the United States, or with  the laws of the state or territory in  which the district is situated, governing the location, manner of recording, amount of work necessary  to hold possession of a mining claim,  subject to the following requirements : On each claim located after  the 10th day of May, 1S72, and  until a patent has been issued  therefor, not less than $100 worth  of labor shall be performed or improvements made during each year;  the said section further provides  that upon a failure to comply with  this condition, the claim or mine  upon which such failure occurred  shall be open to relocation in the  same manner as if no location of  the same had ever been made.  "A rule or custom like the one  appellants sought to establish must  not only be reasonable, but it must  not be in conflict with the laws of  congress or of state. Nor can such  a custom authorize a less annual  expenditure than that named in the  federal statute.  "Other instances wherein the law  as to the value of the work done or  improvements made in representing  a mining claim, if the customs of a  raining district are*to prevail, would  conflict with that established by  section 2324 of the revised statute  of the United States, readily adjust  themselves. -That a custom such as  appellants-sought to establish does  conflict with said section 2324 is  plain. The ruling of the court below excluding the evidence offered  by appellants as to the rules and  customs of the mining district in  which the claim in controversy is  situated, is approved."       v  SMOKE  ROYAL SEAL  AND  KOOTENAY BELLE  CIGARS  UNION MADE  AMERICAN  AND  EUROPEAN  PLANS  MEALS    25    CENTS  ROOMS LIGHTED BY ELECTRICITY  AND HEATED BY STEAM  25 CENTS TO %\  321 to 331 Baker Street, Nelson.

The management of The Tribune has difficulty in securing the
services of boys to deliver papers to
subscribers with any degree of regularity. The trouble appears to
be that there are no boys in Nelson
who are compelled to work for a
living. Seven boys that can be relied ou to show up at the office of

morning except Sunday can secure
employment that will be profitable
and in no way interfere with their
attending school.
The garden robber is getting in
his deadly work with great regularity nowadays. His favorite
field of operations seems to be in

Why Joly Was Appointed.
Ottaava, July 7.—[Special to Tbe
Tribune.] — Colonel Prior made a
plea in the house today on behalf of
British Columbia against the appointment of Joly to the governorship. He said that it ought to have
been a man from the province. He
suggested that Bostock or Temple-
man either would do well. He also
said that British Columbia should
have representation in the cabinet.
Laurier, in answer, said that owing
to the condition of affairs in the
province it was best to appoint an
outsider. He was satisfied that
Joly would do very well. " He also
said that for the very same reason
no cabinet minister had been appointed from the province.
