 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE   DOLLARS A YEAR  Weekly EbiTioN by mml  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  MONDAY MORNING JUNE 25 1900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS  X  /  THE POORMAN IS A MINE  * '���' Will be a Big Producer.  The report of Ernest It. AVoakcs  dealing with tho development of  the Poorman mine, which was read  iit a recent meeting of the shareholders of the Granite Mines, justifies'all the .predictions-that have  been made of the Poorman's producing capabilities. The engineer  in charge of the property now has  sufficient confidence to ,predict that  within a short time the .Poormau  will be producing monthly, ore to  tlio value of $22,500/of which the  company's profits are estimated at  $11,700. The report of engiueer  AVoakes follows:  **You will of course recollect that  this mine was taken over by your  company lasfc year at my earnest  request. It was bought as a partly  developed property, and no extra  capital was asked for at the time  to either develop or equip it*- It  has hitherto been worked by this  company as an adjunct or auxiliary  to tlio Granite mine. The chief  work done on it has been in the  nature of development, which cost  has been borne by the Granite company. These, development works  have proved so successful, that today 1 am convinced that the Poor-  man mine is a more valuable property than the Granite, and I am  most anxious that it should be systematically and properly developed  and equipped. Should you bo able  to see your Avay to raise sufficient  capital to carry out my plans,. I am  confident that within a year we  ' shall be in a position fco double the  capacitj' of our present, stamp "mill.  : You are aware that on the Poorman  * property there is a   10-stamp  mill,  ,   which.could bo moved and included  in  the  Granite mill.    But as there  is a great deal of work to  be  done  in connection with the miue and its  development   before   the   enlarge-  .   ment of the mill is  required, whicli  work in  itself is a comparatively  simple  operation, 1  do not think it  is  of importance'at" this  lime" to  enter   into   its   consideration.   Tn  J;h.       first     place     an      efficient  compressor      plant     is     required.  The    Poorman compressor is only  capable    of    running    one     drill.  AVe  require    at   least    an    eight-  drill  compressor for drills, pumps  and   hoists.        I    think   provision  should be made for tho  instalment  of a larger compressor at the Granite mill, where the new wheel about  to be installed will give us increased  power for this purpose.    Tho tramway aud surface arrangements will  have to be altered in order to allow  of the increased  tonnage of Poor-  man ore  beiug  transported to  the  mill.       Au   inclined   shaft   would  have to be sunk on the  lode  below  No.   .   level;   this shaft should  be  sunk   about   300   feefc,   and   three  levels driven   on tho lode from it.  ^Tho_pi'esentJe_vcls__so_utb,^nameIy,  JSo. *1  intermedfate  and  No. 3, are  ���all  being  driven  in a fine  quartz  vein, varying  from  4  feet   to* 18  inches   in   width,   and    we    hope  shortly to locate the  vein in  No. 2  south.    The  above  sinking  opera-  lions would involve a. plant A'ery  similar to that at present employed  afc the Granite mine.   The cyanide  tests just completed are very satisfactory on a laboratory scale.   A 3-  ton   experimental   plant    is    now  being put up/and should this prove  satisfactory a 50-ton  per day plant  should at once be erected, which  can be subsequently enlarged.  '���i estimate that the above Avorks,  exclusive of any enlargement tothe  present mill, Avould cost about  ��10,000. To move and re-erect the  Poorman battery Avould probably  cost about ��1000, though it would  be advisable to renew a good deal  of the old machinery, especially the  cam shafts, Avhich Avould add to the  first cost. Prom the Poorman mine  I belieA'e we can expect a minimum  extraction by amalgamation of $10  per ton, Avith a further $5 per ton  should the cyanide treatment prove  satisfactory. With the 20 stamps,  or 50-tons-a-day plant, this Avould  yield a gross return of $22,500 per  month. The cost per ton should  not exceed���mining $4, milling and  hauling $1.20, cyanide $2; total,  $7.20���AA'hich Avould leave a net  profit of $11,700 per month. This  iesn.lt I would expect to attain  within six mouths' time. Should  deA'elopments continue as in the  past, I would then proceed to double  i,he mill capacity to 100 tons per  day. The cost per ton Avould then  be less, but we Avill leave them the  same as before, to be on the safe  side.     Should these desirable fore  casts be fulfilled, of wliich I believe  there is every likelihood that they  Avill be, the net monthly profits  Avould be $23,100. At present it  Avould be premature to state when  this latter result could be attained,  but by steady and systematic work,  unattended by labor troubles, on a  mine like the Poorman, I see nothing that can prevent its developing into a large and prosperous  concern."  INVOLVED IN MANY ISSUES  Two Prominent Men Dead. ��� !  London, June 21.���Never at any  time,  iu    her   history   has   Great  Britain been involved   in  so many  diverse issues that vitally affect the  future of her empire.    And though  there  are   still at stake  in  South  Africa,    military,    territorial   and  financial considerations that in their  magnitude have scarcely  been exceeded  during ' the  century, Great  Britain is no exception to  the rest  of Europe in being wrought up to a  pitch of intense anxiety, to the exclusion of eA'ery topic, by tho drama  being enacted in the far east.    In  the excitement of the moment the.  relief of  Mafeking  seems  a   little'  thing compared'Avith' the  relief of  A*"ice admiral Seymour  and  the international   forces.       Spion   Kop,  Paardoburg and Colenso  sink  into  insignificance   compared   with  the  spectacle presented by the land and  sea forces of the six greatest poAvers  in tho Avorld fighting  side by  side  agaiust a common enemy.    AVith a  keen sense of the  relative proportion of things Great Britain quickly  turned her eyes to  China,  not  so  much   perhaps  on   immediate   developments as upon the possibility  of the epoch-making war  or  Avars  Avhich may arise out of the present  crisis.  Tho death of count ���Muravieff,"  the Russian minister of,, foreigu  affairs, evoked no canting obituaries or expressions of regret here,  for the British press,-in spite of the  equariimity^o��--tho~~foreign. office/-  A\*as unanimous in realizing the  gravity of the present, turn of  affairs. To quote a staid and humane weekly: "The death of Russia's minister removes -an obstacle  to the cordiality between Russia  and England," and though this  summarizes the comment of -the  loading papers, there is little hope  expressed that Russia's aggressive  policy toward China Avill be much  modified. Apart from the material  A'iew of tho result of count Mura-  A'ieiT's death ifc is generally referred  to as one of tho most pathetic happenings in political careers, for according to the dead man's critics he  seemed, OAving to the crisis in  China, on the verge oi, accomplishing the object to which he had devoted his life.  Lord Loch's "death, almost coin-  eiding_W-itli_count_MuraA*.ioff_'s,_also_  removes one Avhose name Avas much  connected Avith matters in the far  east. Before he became a colonial  governor, lord Loch assisted, in the  negotiations which resulted in the  treaty of Tien Tsin in 1860, and  only escaped execution at the hands  EACH TEAM WON ONE GAME  Notes on Sporting Events.  Both the Nelson and Spokane  baseball teams have gone down to  their first defeat of the season, each  winning a game. Nelson won the  Saturday game by the handsome  margin of 14 runs to 10, and* was  beaten yesterday by 0 runs to 8  after some accurate and exciting  play. Tne batting was good on  both sides, bufc Caverly proved to  be the star batsman of Saturday's  game. Rockenfield,^ who played  shortstop on Saturday, is conceded  eA'en by Spokane critics to be. undoubtedly the best player that has  been seen in Spokane this season,  both at his position and at the bat.  How Nelson won the match in  the sixth innings of Saturday's  game is thus described by  the Spokesihan-RevieAv: Caverly  opened the nightmare inning Avith  a line hit to left field for two bases.  Eacritt then hit to short, Road-  night fumbling, and, after recovering, threw Avild fco first, allowing  CaA'erly to reach home. Phair hit  to short, and AA*as presented through  fielder's choice with first. Black-  Avood then contributed a hit into  right field, scoring Eacritt and  Phair. Blackwood Avas throAvn out  at third on Mills' hit to short, and  the next moment Mills AA'as caught  in endeavoring to steal second. It  looked as if the agony, might be  over, but the Nelson aggregation  felt otherwise. Houston drove the  ball into deep center for three  bases, and Partridge duplicated the  feat, scoring Houston, and a moment later scoring himself on slow  handling of the ball. AVaters hit  to second and reached first on  Allen's fumble. Rockenfield again  hit safely and Waters moved up a  notch, both men scoring on Caver-  ley's drive to center for two bases.  Eacritt then scored Caverly with a  hit into center, and the fusillade  ended Avith Phair's strike-out.  Yesterday the game. was more  even and exciting, and it will be  observed,that.,neither side scored  'after the sixth innings. The names  of the players and the scores of the  tAvo games follow:,  the lake was dotted with the canvas of the sailing craft. The Myth  Avas put in the Avater after receiving a coat of black lead. The Bobs  was out, and shoAved that she could  sail close to the Avind. AV. H. Bullock-Webster's snug little craft, the  Petrel, made her first appearance  for the season. She is not a racing  boat, but makes up for this in  point of comfort and seaAvorthi-  ness. The Pretoria was quite the  jauntiest thing on the lake. It  was her first public appearance,  and she made quite a hit along the  water front.  ONLY SURMISE AND RUMOR  NELSON HAS MANY MINES  XKIJBOS.  Waters   Houston   Partridge....

Washington, June 24.���The  navy department this afternoon  issued the following bulletin: "A  telegram from admiral Kempff,  dated at Chefoo June 24th, says:  "In an ambuscade near Tien Tsin,  on the 21st, four of AValler's command - Avere killed and seven  wounded. Names Avill be published  later. A force of 2000 is going to  relieve Tien Tsin today. The secretary of the navy has ordered admiral Remey to go Avith the Brooklyn to Taku, and tender general  MacArthur the conveyance of any  army troops Avhich the Brooklyn  can carry."  It will be seen that J. McKenzie  scored within three points of the  top figure. McKenzie is the best  shot in the rifle company and has  improved steadily during the season. . With the same ratio of improvement he is likely to finish the  season very near the top of the list.  The Nelson tennis players avIio  went to Rossland on Saturday were  very successful, Avinning five events  out of eight, and thereby carrying  off the honors in the tournament.  on  16  The initial cricket practice  Saturday brought out 15 or  players, and a couple of hours' batting aud bowling ensued. The  turnout should encourage the club  to get into the game in earnest.  AVhen the fence about the recreation grounds is finished the local  clubs should have an inch of water  pipe put into the grounds, and a  couple of hundred feet.:.of pipe purchased. If the grounds were thoroughly sprinkled before games it  would be to the comfort of both  players and spectators. The city  has a quantity of condemned hose  which could be utilized if the city  fathers would consent to the loan.  Yesterday Avas a lively day on  the lake.

Situation.  New York, June 24.���Cabling  the Tribune f roui London ��� at 1  o'clock this morning, Isaac N. Ford  gives his digest of the lieAA's and  rumors regarding affairs at Tion  Tsin and Pekin as they appear at  the British capital. His dispatch  follows:  "Pekin aud Tien Tsin. remain  isolated from Taku and such information as is drawn from Shanghai and Chefoo is a tissue of sur-  t  mises aud rumors. The- most  ominous report from Shanghai is a  statement that 'prince Tuan has  attacked the foreign quarters at  Tien Tsin Avith Chinese troops aud  Krupp quick-firings guns and the  latest dispatch contains a vague  rumor that the legations were still  holding out on Thursday. *  "The Chinese embassy at Berlin  has also received-a" dispatch from  the viceroy of one of the provinces  stating that the German minister  had not been-murdered but Avas  alive and Avell.  "Chefoo has a fresh batch of rumors to the effect that hordes of  Boxers Avere massed between Tien  Tsin and Takuvthat fighting Avas in  progress and that much of the foreign property had been destroyed.  Not a word has come, either from  the relief column "headed.by ad-  *miral-''SeyraourJor^;"frora.',tb.e legations. ' All the foreign consulates at  Tien Tsin are believed to have been  destroyed and the foreigners are reported to be.huddled together iu a  single quarter,'Avhere the military  force i3 inadequate for their protection.  "There is an intricate Aveb of rumors from the various provinces,  showing that there is a widespread  panic among the foreigners, that  missionaries and traders are scuttling from the iuterior to Yang Tse  ports, and that the Chinese mobs  are in a state of uncontrollable excitement between Pekin, Tien Tsin  and Taku.  "Large allowance must be made  for the feeling of. panic which pervades the seaboard towns, Avhere  rumors are brought from mouth to  mouth, and where there is no trust-  _AV.orthy_information. There. can_be  no doubt that the foreign office and  the admiralty here are alarmed at  the silence of the legations and admiral Seymour, and are utterly at  a loss to account for it.  "Information respecting the attack of the Boxers on the force of  marines and the Russian troops  near Tien Tsin and the destruction  of foreign consulate is drawn from  the Washington dispatches. No  more additional details Avere known  here at midnight.  "The railway is reported to be  open half Avay from Taku to Tien  Tsin, and the allied forces numbering from 3000 to 4000 Avere said to  be on tlieir Avay to tiie relief of the  foreign quarters.  "The situation in China is so bewildering that the officials here content themselves Avith saying that it  could hardly be more serious and  they make no attempt to explain it.  The only reassuring fact is the  heartiness Avith which all the  powers are standing together."  Another Uprising Feared.  Shanghai, June 22.���Owing to  the absence of Avarships at Kiu  Kiang Fu some apprehension is felt  there of an uprising. The merchants  steamer companies therefore have  arranged to always keep one  steamer in readiness. The British  twin screAV sloop Danube has arrived  here Avith ammunition. There are  no signs of a disturbance.  Sir Frederick Hodgson Wounded.  Accra, June 24.���Sir Frederick  Hodgson, governor of Gold Coast  Colony, was wounded iu the shoulder during a recent sortie from the  fort. It is rumored that eight officers were killed.  Kick Morning Mountain.  In spite of panic mongers, alarmist rumors, fake labor troubles and  other political devices organized by  men who should  know better as  they are making a liviug on other  people's   money   invested   in   this  country, mining in AVest Kootenay  continues    steadily    to     progress.  Work is progressing steadily in the  Rossland camp, where the Le Roi  mine alone is shipping nearly 600  tons a day;   in the Slocan, as  Avill  be seen in a letter printed elseAvhere  from The Tribune's special correspondent, there is great activity in  mining circles w'here men.mine" and'  do not talk, and the same is to be  seen in the Nelson miniug division.  Iu a recent issue The Tribune  described fully the starting up of  the Venus mill on Morning mountain, thus adding another to the list  of the shipping mines and giving  another  proof of the  richness   of  that   hill.    Morning    mountain   is  destined to become famous as a gold  producer, and it is wonderful that  it is only comparatively recently  that its richness is being proved.  - The star mine of Morning mountain so far, is, of course, the Athabasca, whose 10 stamps have been  crushing ore  regularly for  nearly  tAvo years.     The  character of the  ore is such that the mill has to be  run slowly8 but the  monthly cleanup   has   aA'eraged   about   $10,000.  Last  month  the    returns ' took   a  jump,  $18,500  being recovered  in  bullion, and concentrates, while this  month a  $25,000    cleanup   is   expected.     To these values must be  added   the   tailings   Avhich    carry  quite an  appreciable  quantity of  gold.   Thesehave been saved, and,  ifc is understood, "a cyanide plant is  about to be erected for. their treatment.    At a general meeting held  in Loudon last month a reorganization of the company was decided  upon in order to raise funds  to increase the plant, but if the monthly  cleanups continue on last  month's  basis, it looks as if that move Avould  be   unnecessary.     The Athabasca  has been making some money right  along, and.the ^profits being made  now"are very'larg'e.'-" '"*' '���  The Exchequer, also on Morning  mountain,    near    the    Athabasca  tramway, is another promising property, aud free milling, like all the  Morning   mountain   mines.      This  property, Avhich lay idle for some  years  owing  to dissension  among  the shareholders,  started  up some  two   years   ago,    and    has    been  worked continuously until recently..  Connections  Avere  made wifch  the  Hall Mines tramway, and  latterly  the property has been self-supporting and Avill  be a dividend payer  Avhen a little more development has  been   done.       The   vein   averages  about   four   feefc  of   ore  of   good  grade.    There is no Avagon   road fco  the mine, so, Avhen the Hall   Mines  smelter closed doAvn  the  ore could  not   be  profitably   marketed,  aud  -the-management_=Avisely_decided_to_  suspend operations for a Avhile.    It  is expected, however, that the mine  Avill start up shortly in  pursuance  of arrangements now being effected.  Yet another promisiug Morning  mountain  is   the   Birdseye   group  belonging   to the Nelson   Copper-  iields company,  limited, Avho took  up their  bond  on the property on  the first of the month.    This is also  a free  milling  proposition  despite  the name of the company that owns  ib.    The ore in this mine i.s of  good  grade,  and  A'ery  handsome   specimens have been  brought to  town.  A considerable amount of Avork has  been  done  on  this group, and tlio  local management says it will   not  be  long  now  before a mill will be  erected and the Birdseye  enter the  list of Nelson's producing mines.  The Juno group on Morning  mountain has been bonded by a  Montreal syndicate represented  here by Charles Parker. A considerable amount of Avork lias been  done on this property, which boasts  a strong ledge of free milling  quartz. The owners of the  Juno, by the way, have had  the singular good fortune of  having the value of their property  proved for them, and at no expense  to themselves. Tunnel No. 2 of the  Venus mine adjoining reached the  Juno ground after running about  000 feet. In the breast of the  tunnel there .shows up a strong  ledge, between Avell defined Avails,  of at least two feet of $40 ore.  There is no doubt, Avhatever, that  this is the Athabasca ledge, Avhicli  is thus proven to run through the  Juno group, though it docs not outcrop on that property, the Avork  already done having beon performed  ou a different \*ein.    This ore body  can be easily reached on the Juno  either by shaft or tunnel. AVork on  this property is to be vigorously  prosecuted all the season.  The list of good properties on  Morning mauntain is not yet exhausted, for there remains the Bor-  nite Bank. But little is'"heard- in  Nelson of this property, as the  office of the company, for^, some  occult reason, is located in'Rossland. Mining men who. have'-, seen  it, hoAA'ever, are loud in its praises,  some going so far as to say that it  is the best property on the hill.  However this may be, there is no  doubt but that it '** possesses a  strong ledge of free milling quartz,  Avhich, as is invariably the case on  Morning mountain," carries high  values in gold.  There aire numerous other properties on Morning mountain with  good surface��� showings, but they  are still in the initial stages of development. Enough has been said,  however, to show the richness of  Morning mountain j Avhich, if situated anywhere else than near Nelson, AA'ould long ago have attained  fame in the mining Avorld.  Toad mountain, only separated  .from Morning mountain by a gulch,  seems temporarily under a cloud.  For reasons Avhich it is unnecessary  to go into here, that group of properties knoAvn as the Hall Mines  has been temporarily closed down.  That mine, however, has shipped  many thousands of tons of silver-  copper ore to its smelter by the  lake, and large reserves of ore are  knoAvn to exist in the mine. The  mine management Avas handicapped  in the past by the necessity of  immense daily shipments to keep  the big copper blast furnace at the  smelter going, and for a long time  200 tons of ore AA'as sent doAvn daily.  The result Avas that the development Avork inevitably fell behind.  The company was successfully reorganized in London .recently, and  private advices indicate that Nelson's biggest single ��� industry will  soou be in full swing * once 'more.  As showing the ..value ' of the, property it is interesting to note that  the company recently received ca  very flattering offerv���for.-the mine  from Canadian capitalists^ iinder-  ' stood to be Gooderham^and-:.-Black-  stock. "Tiie '"directors -refused it,  however, preferring to keep a good  thing to themselves.  The Dandy group, an extension  of the Silver King group, was-extensively Avorked hist fall by an  English syndicate which included  several Athabasca shareholders.  There is a large body of silver-copper ore on the Dandy, similar to  the Silver King ore. The property  is not being Avorked just now, hoAV-  eA*er, and it is understood that the  deal is hanging fire on account of  the stringent condition of the Londou money market: Those who  knoAV the property best assert that  if intelligently Avorked on a large  scale, there is big money iu the  Dandy.        Latest Chinese News.  Neav York, June 24.���At 0 o'clock  this morning Isaac N. Ford cabled  the Tribune from London giving  the latest neAvs from the Chinese  situation that had reached the  metropolis at that hour. He says :  "Telegrams from China are of a bewildering nature. Li Hung Chang  is still at Canton, and there is no  sign of his leaving there for Pekin,  yet he is said to be kept advised  daily of the latest developments of  the situation. The American gunboat is at Canton aAvaiting events  and guarding the foreigners' interests. The state of affairs at Tien  Tsin is causing great alarm Avhich  is not likely to be lessened by tho  neAvs of the failure of Americans  and Russians to raise tho siege of  the town. Nothing i.s known of  the reported attempt of the allies  to reach Tien Tsin last night."  Eossland Boy Drowned.  Rossland, June 24.���John Janes,  a lad of 14, was drowned iu the  pond in the west end of the town  today at 12:30. The lad Avas subject to fits and was seized Avith one  after he had been bathing and fell  from a log into the water. The  other boys bathing with him were  younger than he, and AA'ere frightened, and so made no' attempt to  save him. After being in tho water  half an hour, the body Avas recovered.

Kaslo, June 22.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���Some parties are spreading abroad a report that there is  likely soon to be more  trouble in  the mining   districts.

Avithin a mile.of the Kaslo & Slocan, i*  railway, and two miles of the C. *P; "  R.  branch.    The   ore   carries   the  average values of the Slocan, uame-    V  ly, 70 per cent lead and 125 ounces"-. c  of silver. -   r  The  Minnesota company,  Avhich s-f  owns the Ivanhoe and other claims' '<��� '-'.  near Sandon, is doing' fast Avork in  '&  more Avays than one.    For example ' -il  it is getting  its big mill put up in ;-X'r  rapid time,  and also has the dis- *v  tinction of pushing?its big crosscut..':?  on    the  Ivanhoe  faster than - any ."-ir  other similar Avorking in the prov-'-*/!*  ince.    The crosscut is now in 1250 V?:  feet.    It Avas started last November,~'--.'fi  and it is expected that the -ledge ._\  Avill ,,be   met   in   a   day   ors two.',"/*  AVhere this crosscut is expected to-/.!  tap  the ledge there is au 185 foot  winze.

Jt is iii-  -;'  tended  to make a raise, from 300  feet in, right to the bottom of the  ore dump, so that the dump ean be  handled  to the head of the tram  from the lower tunnel.    The Minnesota mill is expected to,,be running  by September  and   it  is  belie\'ed  that there will then be ore enough  to keep it going night and day for  some time to come.  The AVhitewater Mines Company"  is tbe defendant in an action  brought by one of its men Avho had  his leg seriously injured at the  mine sometime ago. R. A.

Malliusou AVilliams, of tho  Chapleau Mines, and Percy Dickinson, of the AVarner Miller Syndicate,  leave for Victoria today. They  Avill spend several days there in an  endeavor to interest the government in the proposed new Avagon  road up the north fork of Lemon  creek. The building of this road is  a much needed improvement and  has beeu agitated for some time  by the business men and miners  of Slocan City. Messrs. AVilliams  aud Dickinson have a letter signed  by all the business men of Slocan  urging the government to build the  road. Mr. AVilliams Avent to Aric-  toria several months ago on the  same mission, but Avas obliged to  abandon it and return to Nelson on  account of the doAvnfall of the Semlin government. The road if constructed Avould prove an immense  benefit to that section as it would  tap all the mines in the dry ore  section of Lemon creek.  All the Wires Down.  The C. P. Telegraph Company's  Avires went down last night before  more than a quarter of the usual  press service A\'as delivered to The  Tribune. The Spokane Northern  Telegraph Company's wires were  also down, and so The Tribune is  unable this morning to give its  readers their usual quota of the  Avorld's news. The lightning last  night is stated to be the cause of  fche general failure of the wires. .  .H'.u.Ui��'.j��.u^uli.raiywi'M^ THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON B.

ALL SIZES  s  Bay Stores  Tin-;  success  which the Granite  Mines is meeting AA'ith in the development of the Poormau and  Granite mines means much to the people  of Nelson.   For several months development Avork had  been steadily-  pushed   upon the properties,  and  from   time   to  time   stories   have  drifted into the city of the good  luck which the company had  encountered;    but    nothing   definite  was allowed to become public until  the recent extraordinary meeting  of the company, which Avas held in  London on May 29 th.    From  the  report of the engineer, Avhich was  i*ead   at   the   meeting,  ifc appears  that the company's best hopes' for  the   Poorman   property    will    be  realized,     and     that     within     a  short   time    the    monthly    yield  from the Poorman  will aggregate  over $22,500, of which sum ifc is estimated that $11,700 Avill represent  the company's profits.   The reijorfcs  from   the   Gianite   mine arc  also  highly, encouraging, and it is not  dealing in  improbable   futures  to  predict that Avithin a  feAAr  months  the tAA*o Nelson properties, which a  short time ago were comparatively  uuknoAvn,  will bo  producing each  month   gold   bearing    ore    worth  $45,000.    This Avill be-good neAvs to  the  people  of Nelson.     It is what  the old-timers have predicted from  the first, and the success AA'hich has  attended the development of the  Poorman  and   Granite    properties  will no doubt encourage  others  to  take up  other   properties   in   the  Nelson gold belt, which-are noAv no  less promising than were the Poor-  man and Granite Avhen their development was taken in hand.  In its last issue the Cranbrook  Herald giA'es the Nelson Miner a  well merited rebuke for its insinuations in connection Avith J. R. Costi-  gan's remarks, at the banquet tendered to the successful candidate at  Cranbrook. The Herald says : "In  " the opinion of the Herald, if local  " papers Avould endeavor more to  "propitiate home unity and good  " feelings instead of stirring up  " petty strifes and perpetuating  " political animosities in their ATiciu-  " ities, there Avould be more happy,  " thriving communities than there  " are, and the country newspaper  " would occupy a greater field of  " usefulness than it now does."  Death of Count Muravieff.  Pakis,' .Tune'   24.���The    sudden  death,   of    count    Muravieff,   the  strong bulwark of the Franco Russian alliance, has .caused ,deep  concern  among   the   members  of the  -French offieiaLaud-political LAvorld.  Count Muravieff was a bitter antagonist   of  England, and  in  him  France felt she  had  an  influential  friend.     The   cordial   relations  of  the  foreign  offices  of  Russia  and  France, moreoA'er, have not  rested  upon a purely political  basis.    A  great   element   of    strength   Avas  found in the personal friendship existing betAveen  M. Deleasse, French  minister       of      foreign       affairs,  and     count     Muravieff,    and   to  the    former     the     loss     of     his  friend   came   as   a   severe   blow.  Tho   removal  of   count  Muravieff  from  the  councils  of   the  czar  is  gravely commented  upon   by the  French   press,   and   in   hopes   expressed that the policy of Jtussia  Avill   nofc be affected thereby one  discerns   apprehensions    lest    the  foundations of the Franco-Russian  alliance should be rudely shaken by  the lopping off of one of its strongest   roots.    The   veil  drawn   OA'er  events  in  Pekin  by the interruption of communication serves to increase  the  anxiety  felt  here.    M.  Deleasse, minister of foreign affairs,  speaking  today on  the   situation,  gave   it   as   his  opinion  thafc  the  poAvers' first duty was to overcome  the   rebellion   aud  to   insure   the  safety of the properties and lives of  all foreigners.   The Cassiar Election.  It is usually the unexpected that  happens in out-of-the-Avay corners  of. the earth,,,and now the signs  point to Mr. Staples (Independent  Liberal) sitting in Captain Irving's  old place as Mr. Clifford's colleague  for Cassiar.   Bella Coola and Hazel-  ton, with.Dease Lake presumably,  were all the polling stations not yet  heard from yesterday; It was expected that each of these would in  crease the lead then held by Clifford  and Irving, the commodore being  three A*otes ahead of Mr. Staples.  Instead of doing so, however, Bella  Coola gave Clifford 25, added 25  votes for Staples, and divided an  odd five between Irving and Godfrey, the captain receiving four.  These additions made the totals:  Clifford, 311; Staples, 201; Irving,  244 ; and Godfrey, 188. Then came  the neAvs that the ballot boxes had  not got up to Hazel ton (and therefore not to Dease Lake, Avhich is far  beyond) and that in consequence no  vote had been polled there, so that  Messrs. Clifford and Staples may be  counted elected. The former is one  of the besb known men of the north,  a pioneer of the Cassiar district,  and its senior member in the last  parliament. His colleague represents more directly the Atlin section of the district and is himself a  practical miner. He is a Liberal,  but distinctly disavows affiliation  Avith Mr. Joseph Martin.  The Lance in France.  The question of arming the  French cavalry Avith lances is still  under discussion, and gives the following information "as to the arms  carried by the cavalry of other nations : In England 31 cavalry regiments carry sabre and carbine ; six  regiments of lancers have the lance  iu addition; seven regiments of  dragoons liaAre recently been supplied Avifch the lance for the front  rank only. Iu Italy 24 caATalry  regiments carry sabre and carbine,  the latter with a bayonet a foot  long ; the 10 lancer regiments carry  a lance' in addition. In Germany  the 93 cavalry regiments are all  armed "with sabre, carbine and  lance. - In Austria the 42 caA'alry  regiments carry sabre and carbine;  the 11 regiments of Uhlans, avIio  used to carry a lance, have ceased  to do so. In Russia the 119 cavalry  regiments carry sabre and carbine;  the 58 dragoon regiments have no  lance, but their carbine has a bay-  onet-liboutriiv*e���inches"long ; in"%8~  regiments of Cossacks the men iu  the front rank carry the lance ; the  15 regiments in the Caucasus have  no lance; all the Cossacks carry a  pistol and poignard ; in tliesix regiments of the guards the men in the  front rank carry the lance.  Dramatic Critics in the War.  It is an interesting fact that  Spenser Wilkinson, the best of all  the British AA'ar critics, is the regular dramatic critic of a London  newspaper. II. J. Whigham, already famous as a military explorer  and Avar correspondent, first sprang  into prominence as a dramatic critic  in Chicago journalism. Julian  llalph, Avho has surrendered one of  his staunch American legs fco the  glorious cause of God and freedom  in South Africa, has been for years  an able Avriter on theatrical affairs,  aud one might go on indefinitely  naming gentlemen  Avho  have  first  B. C. HOTEL   erie, b. c.  qualified for the strenuous life in  the chair of dramatic criticism. As  a dramatic critic a man requires  the keen perceptive faculty, the  ability to detect instantaneously a  false note. lie learns tho art of  disputation, ahvays with fairness  and candor, and hoAv to say a meau  thing with grace and elegance.  AboA*e everything he is absolutely  fearless, and learns to contemplate  enraged stars, threatening theatrical managers and bulldozing -press  agents Avith intrepidity and undiminished assurance of right. The  necessary preliminary training of  the war correspondents is thus perfectly understood.  ROYAL SEAli  AND    . *;;.  KOOTENAY BELLE  CIGARS     ���'.

A discussion is going on respectful ^the^meti ts^of _m iu in g.exchan ges..  Like most other institutions, these  exchanges have good and bad  points, and to the degree iu whicli  they induce capital to seek undesirable investments in mining stocks  tliey are certainly an evil influence.  ]5ub the disposition to buy mining  stocks is strong among many classes  of capitalists. There is an element  of the lottery about the average  mine that undeniably attracts many  a man who would scorn to place his  money on the turn of a wheel,' and  if such a man wants to buy he has.  little difficulty in finding other men  equally willing to sell. It is difficult to feel much indignation  against the sellers of mining stocks  of dubious value when the purchasers, with a thousand warnings before their eyes, deliberately bite at  the glittering bait. When tlieir  toeth grate on the gilded file, the  i inpulse is not to pity their shattered molars and bicuspids, but to  ejaculate, Serve them right.  The chief responsibility lies on  the men who permit their names to  bo used as the officers and promoters of mining companies. It  has come to this, that the experienced dealer pays little heed to the  names on a prospectus, but investigates the proposition for himself.  Other men, of less experience, invest tlieir money on the strength of  their confidence in the honor and  business capacity of the.oflicers of  companies, often to find .that these  officers have given' their names and  little else to the concerns. Ib is  said that most of the losses'made  by British investors in Canadian  mining securities have been occasioned by a too-confiding trust in  the value of the names on the execu-  Is now prepared to issue_Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  tive. Tt is evident that there is  not a keen enough appreciation of  the responsibilities of their position  by Canadians of good business  standing who permit themselves to  staud sponsors for new mining en-*  terprises.  OLD-TIME WITCHCRAFT.  When superstition is so far moribund that the death penalty for  witchcraft' has long since been  erased from the statute book, and  the impostor who trades on the  ^fatuity^qf^is^or-her^fellow-ciqizens  is subjected only to well-merited  punishment as a rogue and vagabond, it is interesting to look back  upou the beliefs of our forefathers  and note to what excess of cruelty  popular prejudice and credulity  could force even wise and good  men.  And no more remarkable instance  can be given than that which took  place at the spring assizes held by  sir Matthew Hale at Bury St. Edmunds in the year 1070, when two  old widows, named respectively  Rose Cullender and Amy Duny  wero indicted for bewitching their  neighbor's children. The evidence  for the prosecution went to show  that the prisoners, who* were poor  and gained a precarious livelihood  by hawking fish, had an evil repute  for witchcraft, in the place where  they lived, and, it was alleged, were  heard to use threatening language  to the parents of the prosecutors,  because they would not deal Avith  them. Shortly after -the threats,  the children, who were evidently  weakly and neurotic, if not deliberately malicious, were seized with  fits, in which they swore that they  saw the two prisoners urging on  their imps to torment them; and  on one occasion Deborah Pacey, a  girl nine years old, falling into a  swooning fit, after much pain and  straining, vomited up a two-penny  nail with a broad head, which she  said a bee had brought and forced  into her mouth.  Numerous other incidents of an  equally veracious and probable  character, extending over several  mouths, were also sworn to by the  parents and friends of the interesting sufferer.   The other children  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.  Capital Authorized    $2,500,000  Capital Paid up $2,458,603  Rest   $1,700,000  D. R. Wilkie, General Manager.  E. Hay.

It wa9 also deposed, with  most damaging effect to the prisoners, that one of the children,  after being speechless for some  time, suddenly ran about the house  holding up her apron and crying  '���Hush, hush!" as though there weie  poultry in the house, though the  deponent could see nothing. ���  Another little innocent called  Jane Bocking, after vomiting lath  nails aud pins, affirmed that the  prisoners, presumably their astral  bodies, had got into her bedroom  aud were standing round her bed  for the purpose of tormenting her.  Strangely enough, the above evidence,* though conclusive to every  right minded person in court, was  regarded with disapproval by. sergeant Keeling, one of the leaders of  the circuit, who had the temerity  to say that he thought it was insufficient to convict the prisoners  upon, even if the children were bewitched, on the ground that "it  could not be applied to. the  prisoners on the imagination only  of the parties afflicted; for," said he,  " if this be allowed, no person  whatsoever can be in safety." Fortunately, however, for the interests  of justice, one Brown of Norwich, a  person of great knowledge, at this  stage informed the court that quite  recently there had been a great  discovery of witches in Denmark,  who afflicted people with crooked  pins and needles, identical in character with those produced in evidence, and it was his opinion "that  the Devil in such cases did. work  upon the bodies of men and women  on a natural foundation,", which  evidence beiugvery Relevant to the  issue, appears to have given the  court the liveliest satisfaction.  But   some officious person, still  unsatisfied,   that as contact with  the supposed witches produced such  strong signs of aversion in the little  victims, it would be well to bandage  the children's eyes with their aprons  and see what the result would be  if someone touched them.    In compliance with this suggestion, at the  desire   of   the   judge,   lord   Corn-  Avallis, sir Edmund Bacon, find the  still sceptical serjeant Keeling, "attended   one   of Jbhe   distempered  children in the farther part of the  hall, whilst she was in her fits, one  of the prisoners being with them at  the same   time.     An apron   was  placed over the girl's eyes, and one  of   the   gentlemen   touched   her,  producing the same effect, scratches  and    all,     that     the     touch     of  the witch had done."    Whereupon,  curiously   enough,  the   gentlemen  returned   openly   protesting   that  they believed the whole business  was   an imposture.   As   even the  court seems to have thought tho  evidence rathei' shaky after this,  some other Avitnesses were brought  in Avho knew nothing about   the I  charge.       However,   one    Robert  Sherringham swore that two years  before   Rose Cullenden  was   very  angry   Avith him  because  he had  accidentally knocked  part of her  house Avith his Avagon, since Avhich  time   he   had   .suffered  great   loss  through  his  cattle dying,  "for as  soon as ever his sows pigged the  pigs would leap and caper and im-  Palace IVjeat IV|ar^et  Headquarters  for all kinds of  Fresh and Cured  Meats.  mediately fall doAvn and die."  Corroborative o evidence of this  interesting natural phenomenon  having been given, the case for the  prosecution closed, and the judge  charged the jury, avIio, after half  an hour's deliberation, brought in a  A'erdict of guilty. The witches  Avere duly hanged on the folloAving  Monday, having, strange to say,  confessed nothing.  A. R.
