 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION 6Y MAiL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON: SATURDAY MORNING JULY 7 J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  b  RICH . SILVER-LEAD   MINE  The Emily Edith.  The Emily Edith Mines, Limited,  is the name of the newly organized  company to operate the Emily  Edith mines near New Denver.  The subscription list of the company was opened on the 18th of  June aud closed on the 21st. The  shareholders of the New British  Columbia Development Corporation, Limited, applied for upwards  of one-half of the issue of stock.  The capital of the company is ��75,-  000, divided into 75,000 pound  shares, of which 20,000 will be ap-  priated for working capital. The  chairman of the company is Beaumont Leather'of Leeds, with Jesse  Cooke, Win. Plews, and H. B Rat-  cliff e as directors, Chas*. E. Hope,  hical manager, and J. D. Kendall,  consulting engineer.  Four   kuown   ore-bearing   veins  cross  the  property of the   Emily  Edith  Mines.    No. 1 vein runs for  3000 foot horizontally through the  claims, giving on a sample shipment  of 15 tons, 110 ounces of silver per  Ion and 40J per cent lead.    No. 2 is  a much larger vein of a lower grade,  ' running 1(500 feet across the claims,  and  from  whicli  three   shipments  have beeu made, giving au average  of 58 ounces of silver per ton and 51  per cent of lead.   No 2 has been explored for a distance of '106 feet,  nnd two ore "chutes havo beon dis;  covered; the first one is 280 feet in  length, the vein being from 5 to (50  feet  in  width,  and  the  ore body  varies from a few inches to 20 feet.  The second ore chute was only discovered  recently; it  is now being  worked, having been opened up for  a distance of 35 feet.    No shipments  have yet been made from this chute,  but   so far   as can   be   judged   it  carries higher values than tho first  one.    The   other  two   veins   have  *\o.nly been recently discovered, the  "arger of Avhich (five to six feet wide)  is"likely to prove very valuable as  ic carries both galena aud carbonates, running high in silver values.  "Large bodies'of zinc ore'are" already  opened uio but no value has hitherto  been  placed  upon  them  owing to  tho  want  of. a  market, but these  ores are now being  sought after,  and it is confidently believed that  they can be mined and sold at a  piofit.   The mines are opened up  ,by means of 2507 feet of underground  workings,   which   give    a  depth from the surface of about 300  feet, but below the lowest working  there is still a depth of 750 feet of  vertical ground as yet unexplored,  and in which, according to Mr. Kendall's report,   the' ore- bodies   are  practically certain  to  occur.    For  many years to come the work will  be carried on by tunnels, the most  expeditious    and   least   exiDensive  form of mining.  The company will take overall  the concentrating ore extracted and  now lying on the dimips, which_js_  =-^ot|-timatiB'd^at^"bmrt"3500"toTist== ~"  When No. 4 tunnel has been run  to a point to strike the veins already discovered, and the concentrator is erected, it is expected that  50 to 100 tons per day of the. low-  grade ore from No. 2 vein can be  treated. A moderate estimate of  10 tons of concentrates and 5 tons  of clean ore would give a daily output of 15 tons without taking any  account of the rich clean oro of high  silver values in No. 1 vein. The  following estimate of profits is based  upon the value of ore in No. 2 vein  as stated by Mr. Kendall's report,  which is considered very conservative, being calculated upon the lowest actual return and the highest  probable expenses, and does not include the high value of the rich ore  iu No. 1 vein, stated by Mr. Kendall  in his report as worth ��13 14s. per  t >n net (2000 pounds); although recently a letter has been received  from Mr. Hope stating that an outcropping of this vein has been found  70 feet above the upper tunnel, and  running toward the 'J.I.C.' claim.  It has been exposed for 150 feet,  and two assays from it, gave 117  ounces, and 442 ounces of silver per  ton respectively. Mi. Kendall gives  the present value of the ore from  No. 2 vein at- ��12 per ton at the  mine, after allowing for duty, from  which has to be deducted ��3 14s.  per ton for freight and smelting  charges, leaving ��8 0s. per ton, and  he states the estimated working  cost at ��3 14s. per ton after allowing for exploration, development,  stoping, milling, management, etc.,  thus leaving a profit oif ��4 12s. per  ton, which on an output of 15 tons  per day of 300 working days in the  year will give a return of ��20,700.  The freight and smelting charges of  the first shipment of ore from these  claims was $20.75, afterwards reduced to $18 per ton, and it is expected that a further reduction will  be obtained in the near future.  The New British Columbia^Development Corporation, Limited, who are  the vendors to and the promoters  of the company, have fixed tho purchase price at ��55,000, payable in  shares, or cash and shares, at the  option of this compauy.  TEXT OF CORRESPONDENCE  Mclnnes to Scott.  Ottawa, July 0.���[Special to The  Tribune.]. ��� The correspondence  which passed between Mclnnes and  Scott may be said to commence  with the following "telegram from  the ex-lieutenant governor :  'Victoria, October 21st, 1898.���  Lieutenant governor to Hon. R. W.  Scott. Can I constitutionally grant  a request for dissolution before the  new legislature has formally con-  Arened ? Please wire reply. (Signed)  T. R. Mclnnes."  Scott replied as follows : "While  technically you might have the  right to grant dissolution on the  advice of your ministers, yet' the  exercise of that power under existing circumstances would be regarded as extraordinary and unprecedented; and I would advise  agaiust its exercise. Confidential.  (Signed) R. W. S."  Letters which Scott will present  the senate will show that on 12th  September, 1899, Mclnnes writes  Scott saying that he had decided  allow his advisers to fix the date of  meeting of the legislature for January 4, 1900, and did not insist on  their meeting in October, which he  at one time thought of doing.  Then Mclnnes goes ou to make  what was evidently a plea to get  into the Dominion cabinet. He  says:,.-  "I fear the government has relied overmuch on the advice of- inexperienced politicians as far as  this province is concerned, upon the  rei>resentation;i,T>f r-ttibse^-who ���- cry-  ���AI1 is well,' when all is not well."  On October - 27th, 1899, Scott,  wired that he heard the government was being materially strengthened, and that therefore he  thought it would be best to give  them some time. On the,following  day, the 28th, Mclnues replied that  he had called on new advisers. On  Oth April, 1900, Scott suggested that  au early session of the legislature  should be held or a dissolution, and  on the 10th M'lunes replied that  the legislature had been dissolved.  Some telegrams then passed between them as to length of time  between dissolution and election.  On the subject of the private  letters Mclnnes writes that no one  but himself and his . secretary saw  Scott's letters, and therefore there  would never be any necessity f or  tak^gjhemfrom "obscurity-ofLa^  private file." Mclnnes, in a letter  dated March 4th, says that Martin  was accepted as a Liberal leader.  This will mean the unification of  what was a badly disorganized  party and I trust you will be disposed to recognize, as a side issue of  course, the service my action has  rendered the Liberals here."  He goes on to say that the people  heartily approved of what he had  done. Those who������ did not were  treated like the members of the  Liberal association in Victoria, who  were turned out of office, and Duncan Ross of Greenwood, who, he  says, was expelled by the Liberals  of that place.  American Engineers Entertained.  London, July 0.���The earl and  countess of Warwick entertained  the visiting members of the American institute of civil engineers at  luncheon at Warwick Castle this  afternoon, In toasting president  McKiniey both the earl and countess dwelt on the importance of promoting friendship between America  and Great Britain.  Cassiar Ballot Boxes Lost.  Victoria, July 0.���Cassiar ballot  boxes have gone astray. The returning officer sent them to Skagway for shipment to Victoria, and  he came here to make the official  count, but found that the boxes had  not arrived.

The weather is warmer.  STEVENSON IS NOMINATED  Scenes in the Convention.  Kansas City, Missouri, July 0.���  The Democratic national ticket was  completed today by the nomination  of Adlai Stevenson for vice-president. The nomination was made  on the first ballot, state after state  joining in the wild scramble to record their support of the winning  candidate. It was not accompanied by any such frantic demonstration of approval as had marked  the proceedings at previous stages,  although the result followed a  spirited and at times, highly dramatic contest between the advocates  of Stevenson, Townle, Hill and the  lesser candidates.  The distinct triumph of the day  in the way of a popular ovation was  that accorded to senator Hill, and  in its spontaneity and enthusiasm  was one of the most notable features  the convention has produced. It  was accompanied too by a remarkable scene, when Hill earnestly protested to his friends against being  placed in nomination and then,  finding his protest in vain, when he  strode'to the platform and in tones  ���which left no doubt of their sincerity he earnestly besought the  convention not to make the nomination.  The proceedings today moved  with greater briskness than either  of the two preceding days, for  there was none of the tedious waits  for the platform and committees.  The aspect of the vast auditorium  was truly democratic when the  session began. Anticipating the  close of the convention the general  public was admitted freely, and as  a result great crowds emptied into  the body of the hall, not pnly filling every available seat.,in the  arena and aisles, but also "overflowing into the. arena reserved for  delegates, while some adventurous,  individuals scaled the iron girders  .and looked down from a dizzy  height on the 30,000 people packed  below. The crowd practically took  -possession-of ��� the proceedings .at  times. The chairman and his bffl-  , cials were so powerless to proceed,  ���' that they gave up to the multitude  until the various ' demonstrations  spent themselves.  On the call for nominations Alabama yielded to Minnesota and the  latter state presented its young  champion of silver republicanism  and democracy, Charles A. Towne.  The mention of his name was the  signal for a flattering demonstration in his honor, meu and women  joining in the outburst. Far off in  a corner of the auditorium a young  woman could be seen frantically  waving in one hand a lithograph of  the Minnesotan and in the other  the stars and "stripes. On the floor  the Nebraska, Minnesota and one  or two other delegations joined in  the demonstration, but it was  juoticeable==that=4t==did==not=excite=  any widespread enthusiasm among  those who were about to do the  voting.  Gradually other delegations began to rise, some of the New  Yorkers getting to their feet, and  for a moment it looked as though  the convention might be carried off  its feet, but against this was heard  a counterstorm of protestation and  discordant hisses.  For ten minutes the demonstration for Towne lasted with varying  degrees of intensity. Meantime  attention was being directed to a  group who marched to the New  York section with Hill as the vortex  of a struggling throng of delegates.  They pressed forward from all  quarters of the hall urging him to  permit his name to be placed before the convention.  The face of the New Yorker was  a study as the demands upon him  came from all' sides. He sat in the  front row of delegates with ex-  senator Murphy on his right and  judge Van Wyck on his-ammediate  left. A~second seat aw'ay was Mr  Croker. Hill protested vociferously.  Judge Van Wyck said he could not  refuse. Murphy and Croker pleaded  with him to obey the will of the  convention and accept. While the  pleadings continued, the call of  Delaware was heard above the roar  and Delaware yielded her place to  New York.  At this the bulky form of senator  Grady, the silver tongued orator of  New York, pushed. through the  densely packed aisles up to the  platform. There was a hush  through the hall to hear what New  York had to offer.  "In behalf of the united Democracy    of    New    York,"   shouted  Grady, "I present as a candidate  for vice president the name of  David B. Hill."  The effect was electrical, and a  tidal wave of enthusiasm swept  over -the convention.' ^Delegates  stood on their chairs and waved  frantically, not in &��� few scattered  groups but in a'solid phalanx.  Flags and standards were again  mingled in triumph in the procession, while a roar as-;.from Niagara  pulsated through the great structure.  Grady stood there' proudly waiting for the storm to subside, but as  he waited. the audience saw a  strange pantomime. They saw  Hill leave the New York delegation  and push through the .throng up to  the platform. They could see him  appeal to Grady; to withdraw,  while Grady's answer was apparent  from the shake"of his^ head and his  advance to the front of the platform to continue his nominating  speech. When tiie demonstration  had subsided Grady completed his  speech, placing Hill before the convention but as he stepped from the  platform, the man. who had been  placed in nomination, took his  place.  The former" senator, looked out  sternly, even savagely to the yelling thousands. When he could be  heard he made, due acknowledgement of the honor doiie him, but "I  cannot, I-must not be the nominee  of this convention,''^ he declared,  with explosive emphasis.  He was frequently interrupted  with enthusiastic shouts of approval  but when he left the..platform, the  delegates wero .firmly convinced  from his words and manner that he  was sincerely desirous, of having  his name withdrawn.*';; It was iDrob-  ably this, alone that. prevented a  nomination by. acclamation then  -and there,' for- the. tempestuous  spirit manifested showed that the  convention; was, on. the point of  being carried off its feet.  It was soon apparent that with  Hill out, Stevenson was a strong  favorite. State after state seconded  his nomination."'.Georgia, Indiana;  Virginia, Iowa,.". Kentucky, Illinois.  Some of the devoted friends of Hill  still maintained^'thei*'- "allegiance to"  him, and the delegations of New  Jersey, Louisiana and some, others  seconded his nomination.  A COOP MIME'S OUTPUT FOR  lhe* Month of June.  The Athabasca mine, which is  situate about two miles south of  Nelson as the crow flies, made a  record output for the month of  June, and the mill returns show  that the ore averaged $58.09 a ton.  This is the best run the mill has  made, and if the output of the  mine continues up to the June record, Athabasca stock should be a  good buy. The following figures  were furnished The Tribune by  manager Fell:������-      ~~   Period of run, 29 davs 9 hours.

When good ancl reasonable grounds appear, the complaint may be addressed to J. D.  Falconbridge, registrar of the commission, Toronto.  Mulock's'Conciliation Bill.  Ottawa, July 6.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���Mulock's conciliation of  labor bill was read a third time in  the house today. He read a letter  from Ralph Smith showing the benefits derived from conciliation iu a  recent strike among miners in the  Kootenay district.  Steyn and Dewet the Obstacles.  London, July 7.���The Times' Lorenzo Marquez correspondent, in a  dispatch dated Friday, says:  "From a trustworthy source it is  learned that ex-president Steyn  and Dewet are the only obstacles  to the termination of th�� war in  South Africa."  RUSSIA CIVES HER CONSENT  Japan Will Suppress Troubles,  London, July 7, 2:40 a. m.���The  Russian government announces it  will give Japan a free hand to &_.-  ply military force in China. The  terms of this consent are summarized in the following dispatch from  St. Petersburg under date of July  Oth:  "In reply to an inquiry from the  Japanese   cabinet    regarding   the,  dispatch   of   Japanese    troops   to,  China to render aid to the foreigners in Pekin, the Russian government declared on June 27 that it  left the Japanese government full  liberty of action in this   connection, and   the   Tokio   cabinet   expressed its readiness to act in full  agreement with the other powers."  It is in consequence of this, no  doubt, that Japan is preparing to  embark 20,000 more troops.  Political considerations that were  thought to have been benumbing  the action of the powers are thus  laid aside, for. a moment at least,  by the government supposed to  have the clearest purposes respecting China's future.  Japan's sending of troops now.  can have little bearing on the fate  of the foreigners in Pekin. Baron  Kayhashi, the new Japanese minister who arrived iu London on Friday, said that ten days would probe required for the carcyirig of  troops to China. His dictated statements contained these sentences :  "If all the conditions Japan  asked were conceded, I see no reason why Japan should not undertake the task of suppressing the  troubles. The powers are all agreed  in wishing to put down the rebels,  but it does not seem that they are  agreed on the means."  From these authoritative utterances, it is inferred that Japan does  nominate conditions and that the  concert   of the powers   is. a little  tangled.       .   _\  "���--   .        -  -  Stories of further horrors in Pekin are gathered by correspondents  at Shanghai from Chinese sources,  especially of the slaughtering in  the Chinese and Tartar city of  thousands of native Christians, so  that the capital reeks withcarnage.  Prince Tiiau's coup d'etat is described by the Shanghai correspondent of the Daily Mail as a sequence to the grand council of  ministers, at which Yung Lu advocated the suppression of the Boxers  promptly. The dowager empress  gave her whole support to Yung  Lu and a scene of disorder began.  Prince Tuan passionately intervened, backed by Kang Hi, they  rushed from the council and there  partisans raised the cry "Down  with the foreigners.'' The effect  was electrical.  The eunuchs, palace  that while in China he learned that  hundreds of Mausers have been in coffins supposed to  contain the bodies of Chinese who  had died abroad.  lafTficiallTof"all sorts and most of the  populace took up the cause of prince  Tuan and his agents immediately  and put the emperor and the dowager empress under restraint.  The Chefoo correspondent of the  Express, telegraphing on Thursday,  says there is no longer any doubt  that disaster has overtaken the  Russian force of 3000 that left Tien  Tsin for Pekin on June 11th. The  Russians had a full field gun complement and carried their own  transport. As nothing has been  heard from them for 24 days it is  assumed that they have been overwhelmed. Trustworthy news is received to the effect that all the  country to the northeast of Pekin  is covered with the corpses of men  and horses of the western garrison.  A dispatch from Shanghai to tho  Daily Telegraph says that the loss  of the allies up to June 28th totalled 000.  According to tho Daily Telegraph's correspondent, in a dispatch dated Tliureday, .United  States consul Me Wade has great influence with Li Hung Chang, and  persuaded him to issue a proclamation containing detailed instructions to prefects, sub-prefects and  magistrates. It orders them to detect, behead and otherwise severely  punish Boxers. These officials, the  proclamation says, will be held responsible for tho safety of the missionaries aud native Christians.  The Hamburg American Steamship Company has placed at the  disposal of emperor William their  steamer Savoia, due at Hamburg  today (Saturday) for use as a  hospital ship for China. The emperor accepted the offer with warm  expressions of thanks.  A missionary has returned saying  Japanese Troops Arrive.  London, July 7.���The Tien Tsin  correspondent of the Times, in a  dispatch dated July 3rd, says:  "Twenty-two hundred Japanese  troops;'with 14 guns have arrived  at .Taku and 800 are expected to-  hight."--*V-V  -    ,*:it-r. <i_____i   PA^JH^IfON^A VICTORY  Steyn Flees Again.  London, July 7.���General Paget  is moving toward the heart of the  country held by Dewet.  Lord Roberts telegraphed to the  war office under date of Pretoria,  July 6th, 2:25 p.m., as follows :  "Paget engaged the enemy on  July 3rd successfully at Pleisir-  fontein. He drove them out of a  very strong position across Leouw  Kop to Broncrifontein, where he  bivouacked for the night. He followed up the .enemy and on the  afternoon of July 4th was at Blaauw  Kopje, 15 miles north of Bethlehem.  He reports that all of Steyn's government officials, except the ' treasurer general who has gone to Vrede-  stadt, are at Bethlehem, which has  been proclaimedthe capital. Steyn  himself is reported to have taken  flight to the mountains."  Buller reports the line to Heidelberg restored, thus completing railway communication between Pretoria and Natal.  . Lorenzo Marquez on Friday  learned that the Boers are showing  fresh activity. A British .force is  reported within twenty miles of  Koomatipoort.  Adding to Northport Smelter.  Rossland, July 6.���In consequence of the output of the Le Roi  increasing in the manner it has  done of late, and of-the expected  output of the. Le Roi No." 2 (No. 1  and; Josie) ;and' of the LeRoi No. 3  (Nickel Plate),' it hsw'jbe^irdefinitely  decided~to'~considerabiy, enlarge fcho  capacity of. the smelter at North-  port, which is at the present of a  050-ton.capacity, but which is able  to deal with a larger amount of ore  through subsidiary treatments to a  capacity which is nominally double,  1250 tons. New batteries of boilers,  which are in the aggregate upwards  of 750-horse power, have been ordered and are already on the way.  A new engine of commensurate capacity has already  been shipped. Some of the  minor machinery which will  be readily erected has not as yet  been decided upon, though deliberations are now taking place as to  what particular species of this  machinery is most desirable. The  addition of the new plant will  double the present_capacities_of the,  smelter;   AsHthe excavations  and  As  grading for  boilers were  the  the new engines and  provided for at the  erection of the original plant, and  as a fine has already been built for  the new boilers, there will be no  time lost in getting the new works  into order. The new part of the  smelter will probably blow in before tho middle of September. In  tho meanwhile the ore of the B. A.  C. mines which cannot be treated  in Northport will be sent to Trail.  Another Big Surplus.  Ottawa, July 0.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���Figures prepared by the  finance department today show  Canada's revenue for the twelve  months ending June 30th last was  $-19,034,507, as compared with $44,-  098,150, an increase of $4,336,441  over 1899. Tbe difference shown  between revenue and expenditure  shows a surplus of $14,208,197, but  there are yet large items of expenditure not to hand. However,  when all are in, it will be shown  that for the third time in the history of Canada, all expenses will be  met out of revenue without adding  one dollar to the public debt. . For  the year there was an increase in  ordinary expenditure of over $1,-  000,000, and on capital account a  decrease of over $000,000.  Want Kruger to Give In.  Pretoria, July 0. ���Kruger's  flight with the money has greatly  disgusted the Boers. Two deputations have proceeded to Macha-  dodorp to induce him to surrender.  As he is afflicted with Bright's  disease, he was told that the English would probably allow him to  remain in South Africa under  parole.  BUSINESS ISJOINC AHEAD  Wholesalers'Eeport.

Tun: correspondence which took  place between Thomas R. Mclnnes,  as lieutenant-governor, and the  secretary of state, has been published. Its publication can have  but one effect. It shows clearly  that Mr. Mclnnes sought to use his  position for the advancement of his  political fortunes, and incidentally  for the advancement of the interests . of the political. party with  which he had identified himself.  Those-who read the correspondence  will agree that whatever mistake  the Laurier government made in  appointing Thomas B. Mclnnes. it  made no mistake in firing him.  From figures prepared by the  finance department at Ottawa yesterday, it is claimed that the Laurier  government will be able to show a  substantial surplus when the accounts for the present' fiscal year  are made up. It does not matter  very much whether this result is  reached  Laurier  spite of them. As a rule the people  hold the government responsible  for depressions, and as an offset all  governments take credit to themselves for such prosperity as the  country enjoys. If Laurier can  show a surplus Dr. Montague's disloyalty cry will 'fall pretty flat.  When the excitement of the moment has worn off the taxpayers of  the Dominion will prefer a substantial cash surplus to a noisy rendition  of the national anthem by politicians whose patriotism never  strikes deeper than song. .  All speculation, as to the reasons wliich prompted Thomas R.  Mclnnes' to. entrust the management of provincial affairs to Joseph  Martin, has been set at rest. The  testimony of Mclnnes is that Joe  was called because he was a Liberal  . leader, and he asked the Laurier  government to remember the service he had rendered the Liberal  party in calling upon him;* Laurier did not forget. .  John J. Young of the Calgary  Herald desires The Tribune to  state that there is no truth in the  report that he was recently offered  $100,000 for his interest jin the Nettie L. mine. The Tribune has no  hesitancy is accepting Mr. Young's  correction. Newspaper men so  seldom are offered $100,000 for anything they possess that there is not  much chance of the offer having  slipped Mr. Young's recollection.  Unfair to Canada.  London, July 0,���Certain distinguished correspondents of the  Times having advocated state-aided  migration to South Africa as a  means of preventing further troubles there, and that journal'having  supported the scheme, Mr. W. T.  Preston has written a strong letter  -which-appears-in^today-s^Timesriu  protest. He contends against the  idea as being unfair to the other  colonies, striving for and having  under way important financial projects depending upon increased population. He suggests a conference  to study the problem of transferring the surplus population here to  all the colonies, without discrimination. ���  Japanese Help Welcomed.  London, Julp 0.���In the house of  commons today the parliamentary  secretary of the foreign office, William St. John Broderick announced  that the government of Japau had  received assurances that the prompt  despatch of a large force to Taku  would be welcomed by her: majesty's government. No objection,  Mr. Broderick added, had been  raised by any European power. As  the negotiations continued he was  unable to say more, but he assured  the house that the government was  fully alive to the exigencies of the  case.   News From Pretoria.  London, July 5.���Lord Roberts  reports from Pretoria under date  1 of July 5 that lieutenant Rundle of  the  carbineers and  a patrol were  captured by the Boers .near Pretoria July 4.

It needs only, the quotation of his speech to the traders to  shoAv in Avhat particular direction  this has been wielded. The traders  had made light of his laws because  he was a black man: ".Well, I am  black," said Hhama; "but; if I am*,  black I am-chief of my own country at present. When you Avhite  men rule in the country then you  will do as you like. At present I  rule, and I shall maintain my laws,  Avhich you insult, and despise. You  have insulted and despised  my own toAvn because I am a black  man. You do so because you despise black men in your hearts. If  you despise us, what do you Avant  here in the country God has given  to us? Go back to your own country. Take everything you have;  strip the iron roofs off the houses ;  the wood of' the country and the  act  according  God     ; which -:  ceived ��� from  and you show  clay of which you made the bricks  you can leave, thrown, down.  Take all that is yours and go. I  am trying to lead my people to  to that ; word of  ���\ we '-'"'��� have re-  you white people,  them an example of  wickedness .such, as we never knew.  You- the people of the word'of God!  Go! Take your cattle and leave my  town and never come bock again."  It is said that the utmost silence  followed Khama's words and the  traders lost-the .yery,' power to reply., From that this,Khama  has succeeded in j keeping ^rum out  of his country, despite the utmost  efforts of traders, and even" of government officials sometimes, to introduce it into his kingdom.  Guarded by a Chessman.  - Dr. '\Cdnan ' Doylerv has written  home to England 6{_ aj weird experience that befell him recently in  South Africa. Outside' Brandfort  one day he met a mounted Kaffir,  who told him thafc a wounded Englishman had been left out on the  veldt two or three miles away. He  set off at once in the direction indicated, and found the .poor fellow  ���one of the |N. S. W. Mounted Infantry���lying dead. "Horse and  rifle Avere gone. A curious detail  was that his water-bottle lay beside  him, and on it was balanced a red  chess pawn. The other chessmen  were in his hav ers&ck, out of his  Notice is hereby givon that upon the 23rd day  of July, A. D., 1900, at 10 o'clock a. in. at the company's office in Nolson, 11. C. there will bo held a  meeting o�� tho stockholders of the Goldondalc  Mining Company, a corporation, for tho purpose  ot considering a proposition to sell the Golden-  dale and Young Dominion mineral claims (crown  granted), situate aboutfour miles south of Nelson,  British Columbia in AVest Kootenay Mining District. British Columbia, to pay the outstanding  indebtedness of said company.  GOLDENDALK MINING COMPANY,  Hy E. D. Ii>k, Secretary.  Dated this 11th day of Judo, A. D. 1900.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, tj. s.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, NY W. T.  reach." . The creator of Sherlock  Holmes has no doubt some theory  to explain this strange incident,  though he leaves the duty to  others. The most plausible suggestion is that the Kaffir, on finding the white man dead or dying,  opened his haversack, and thinking  the red chessmen were a sort of  fetish, placed one of them by him  to keep guard over the body.  Some Big War Loans.  Tit-Bits.  One hundred and twenty millions  sterling, at 6�� per cent, Avas. the  biggest  loan recorded in history.  The announcement of the loan/was  made by the French government on  July.:26th,.1872,, the sum being required to secure the speedy payment of the war indemnity at the  close of the  Franco-German war,  and the evacuation of theprovinces  held by the Germans. .More than  double the necessary amount Avas  offered to them by willing French  lenders.   Only in the previous year,  1871, the French government asked  for a loan of two millards of francs  (about ��80,000,000   sterling),   and  about   four   milliards   were   subscribed for in France alone.   The  heaviest borrowings by any British  Government   took place    between  1803 and 1815, to meet. expenditure  of wars waged by Napoleon against  this country.    During that period  ��388,000,000  were   borrowed,   and  the loans of   the four last years  were:   1812,  ��40,250,869:   in  1813,  ��54,026,822 ';'  in 1814;  ��47,159,697 ;  and in 1815, ��46,089,603., The largest British loan at one time during    that    period   was   26,000,000  pounds, and therefore the 30,000,-  000 loan in respect of .the South  African .War is.a record both iu the  amount borrowed and in the amount  offered���namely, 330,000.000 pounds  or eleven, times the amount required.  Slavery Not Yet Extinct.  Providence Telegram.  It is generally supposed that slavery no longer exists in the United  States [of America, but by those  who make a close istudy of such  matters this will be]promptly recognized as a. very great mistake. In  San Francisco alone there are said  be 000 Chinese Avomen Avho are, so  far as they know to the contrary, the property of'their masters.  In Brooklyn quite recently a rather  attractive young woman .was sold  to a Chinese laundryman for $600.  The remarkable phase of the Chinese  slavery which prevails iu this country is that the victims do not seem  to realize the abjectness of their  condition and Avould very much  prefer to remain here as they are  than return to their native land  and its daily grind for food, witli  the result of each day's efforts constantly in doubt.
