 tm&m__*mm*m-K_��~.~**~,  II I Ill IMI  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  <i*l  -.,���  ' 4.r  ���S.3I  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING JULY 28  J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  <��  WASHINGTON LOSING HOPE  Conger Message Faked.  Washington, July 27.���Unless  some authentic assurance us to the  condition of the Americans in Pekin  roaches the state department  Avithin a day or two, the administration is likely to abandon whatever faith it has manifested thus  far in the truthfulness of Chinese  information. The state department is still receptive, though looking with growing coolness upon the  numerous edicts and telegrams  which are coming from China, all  without bringing any news.  The contributions of the day  AVfjrc from consul general Goodnow  ���at Shang-Hai and consul Fowler at  Che-Foo. Sb much of their messages as was given out for publication related to the welfare of certain American missionaries who  have been made the subject of  inquiry by relatives in this country.  The cables mangled these messages  and there is reason to doubt tho  value of the information attempted  to be conveyed through them. Mr.  Goodnow also had something to say  about the political situation, and it  is believed that that part of his  message Avas not of an. encouraging  character. At any' fate it was  withheld from the press.  Ever since the receipt at Tien-  Tsin of tho autograph message from  Mr.';Conger, dated at Pekin July  ���Ith,-*-the state department.officials  have had grave doubts as to the  authenticity of the cipher message  attributed to him and dated July  ISfch. lt seems that a Mr. Warren,  at present acting as British consul  at Shang-Hai, has been told by  Sheng, the famous Chinese director  of post and telegraphs, that Yuan,  the governor of , Shan Tung told  him- (Sheng) that a message had  passed-through to the United States  from Mr. Conger on the 18th of  July, telling of tthe condition at the  British legation. This cipher dis-  s patch was "faked"- by Chinese offi-  '���.cijfcl?:-'" It is poiuted out at. the,state  department, however, that there  are plausible explanations of this  curious fact, Avhich tend to show  the authenticity of the cipher  dispatch. ,  It is the earnest desire of the government that the forward movement on Pekiu be made at the  earliest possible moment. Although  neither General Chafee's rank nor  the number of troops under his  command Avould entitle this government to press him for the command of the inland forces, the government feels that he personally is  fit for such an honor, and if chosen  heAVould acquit himself Avith credit.  If another jeoinmauder be selected,  it is the wish of the president that  the American,forces.should not be  divided as to command, but that in  carrying out its share of any movement, all orders to the; American  force should go through general  Chafee.  "ffhe  Berlin, July 27.  Kaiser's Appeal.  -It is reported  that emperor William has written  letters to queen Victoria, emperor  Nicholas, emperor Francis" Joseph  and king Humbert, making a strong  appeal on behalf of the maintenance of harmony among ihe powers  against China, and dwelling strongly upon tho solidarity of interests  against the " yellow peril" by  Avhich all are threatened. The  Vorwaerts, which says that the  kaiser is secretly preparing a much  larger force for China, declares that  . this is being brought about by a  second appeal to the regiments  composing the army for volunteers  to serve in the second China corps.  Mail Service in Hawaii.  Washington, July 27.���The post  office department has announced  the establishment of. the first railway mail servico in Hawaii. The  line runs around the island of Oahu,  carrying the mails between Honolulu and Kahuku via Aiea, Pearl  City, Waipahu, Honoului, Walanae  aud Waiihu a distance of 72 miles  each way. Mails are carried six  times a week or as much oftener as  trains may run. The service began  oh June 14th.  United States' Policy Praised.  London, July 28.���The Daily  Graphic, commenting today upon  Germany's indignation at the attitude of the United States toAvards  China, contends that save for the  fact that secretary Hay is less  vindictive, there is no difference of  policy   between Washington   and  Berlin. "By the exercise of a little  sobriety," it says, "the United  States government has been careful  to keep open diplomatic channels,  Avhile it is not a Avhit less zealous or  active for the rescue of the Europeans in Pekin than Germany. It  is precisely a case justifying the  policy of holding the candle to the  devil, and Mr. Hay cannot be blamed  for taking that course. Certainly  such speeches as emperor William  made yesterday are calculated to  do more harm than good."  IN PURSUIT OF THE BOERS  Are Hemmed In.  London,-. July 27, 11:20 p.m.-���The  Avar office has received the folIoAV-  ing   dispatch   from lord Roberts:  "French   and    Hutton   continued  their pursuit, on July 25th.   The  former crossed Oliphant's river and  from the high ground on the east  bank he could see Middleburg and?  the enemy retiring in great   disorder.     The ' main    road    north  was    blocked    for-  several   miles  with horsemen and wagons.   The  enemy's rear was then seven miles  north and the mounted forces were  still west of the river.     Night was  closing in, the rain was falling in  torrents-and so it was impossible to  follow.. The night Avas terrible. In  addition to the rain, a strong;east  wind made the bivouac most" uncomfortable.    On officer, I regret to  say,  died   of   exposure, and   the  mortality  among  the mules   and  oxen was great.    The men made  light of their hardships and were in  famous spirits wheu I saw them  yesterday.  "Hunter has occupied Fourier-  burg and so far as I know did not'  suffer loss. He found Mrs. Steyn,  Avife of the ex-president, and several of our men whom Dewet- had  captured at different times, and  Avhom he "was unable to .send to  Machadodorp.       0  "The - enemy in - the- Bethlehem  hills are now closed in.

"Barron reports from Krugers-  dorp that he has reconnoitered the  railway to Bank station, where the  train Avas wrecked oh July 19th  and has been able to replenish his  supplies.   ,  . "Methuen's column, Avhich has  reached the Krugersdorp-Potchef-  stroom raihvay, is now moving on  Potchefstroom.  "Buller reports that the railway  was opened to Heidelburg yesterday giving us through, communication to Natal."  DEFENDING CREAT BRITAIN  Salisbury's Reply.  London, July 27.���In the house  of lords, the earl of Wemyss asked  whether the premier, lord Salisbury, had received information  "confirming the vieAv of one of our  military attaches to the effect that  it Avas all important that England  should be entirely unassailable by  November next, and whether he  had satisfied himself that our means  of defence were such as to render  all attempts at invasion futile."  Lord Salisbury demanded the  name of such attache.  The earl of Wemyss���"I cannot  give it.     .  Lord Salisbury���"Then you have  no right to quote him."  The earl of Wemyss'���"You have  no right to ask it."  Lord Salisbury, proceeding with  warmth, said the earl of Wemyss'  inability to quote the name was  evidence that the story was pure  invention. He said he had never  heard that it was important that  England should be unassailable by  November. He understood, however, that a number of shooting  stars might be.apprehended in November. . If his Albert Hall speech on  this subject were read in -its entirety, it would be seen he had not  pointed to any immediate danger.  He believed the defences were quite  adequate, and he. had every confidence in the future.    -  The earl of Rosebery said it was  to be regretted that the premier  had imported so much heat into his  reply. He ' thought the earl 5* of  Wemyss should not have mentioned  the anonymous attache, and said  lord Salisbury's Albert hall speech  had intensified the anxiety of tjhis  country by its extraordinarily inadequate conclusion. It was not  enough to tell the Primrose League  to form rifle clubs to protect liberty,  when "so, vast a body' of reservists  was locked up ten miles away. The  secretary of war had made innumerable statements in the house and  had developed schemes of national'  .defence^biit .the commander-in-chief  had never pressed ,the support- of-  the schemes. The matter ��� was  grave, as parliament would shortly  adjourn.  mons today, William Pritchard-  Morgari, member for Merthyr-Tyd-  vil, who has extensive business  interests in China, asserted that he  had the most reliable information  that all the foreign ministers  (except baron von Ketteler, the  German minister)-in Pekin were  alive on Tuesday, July 24.

MYSTERY STILL CONTINUES  NEGRO'S DESPERATE FIGHT  FIRE AT FURNITURE STORE  - -'���=-Cordingly-Arrested.-- ������  About 12:30 o'clock yesterday  fire was discovered in the premises  of the Nelson Furniture Company,  composed of E. C. Cordingly and  A.* W. Purdy. The flames were located in the sheet iron addition at  the rear of the building and spread  so rapidly that the destruction of  the entire building Avas quickly  threatened. The fire department  did excellent work, however, and  by 1 o'clock had practically extinguished the fire. A large quantity of furniture Avas stored in the  addition, which was also used as a  workshop, and much of this was a  total loss, while the damage  throughout by smoke and water  Avas heavy.  A rather startling sequel to the  fire was'the arrest last evening of  E. C. Cordingly, one of the partners,  on a warrant sworn out by Mr.  Purdy alleging him to be guilty of  arson. The information A\*as laid  and the warrant issued within three  hours of the fire. In the meantime  Mr. Cordingly had left for Five-mila  Point on a business trip. He returned in the evening and was  found at his residence at 8:30 o'clock  by chief Jarvis, and the warrant  ���was executed. Mr. Cordingly Avas  escorted to the police station, where  he was closeted with his solicitor,  W. A. Galliher, for over an hour.  Up to 10 o'clock no bail had been  arranged. The defendant, who  describes the matter as spite work,  will be arraigned before magistrate  Crease at 10 o'clock this morning.  o       New Orleans Tragedy.  Neav Orleans," July ' 27.���-Corporal Porteous and corporal John  Lally were killed by negroes at the  corner of Saratoga and* Clio streets  this afternoon and officer Jackson  wounded. Tbe man who did the  shooting is Robert Charles. Charles was killed at 4:40 p. m. Four  warehouses have been set on fire,  all the militia have been called out  and trouble is expected_,tonight.'   ���  New Orleans, July 27.���After a  desperate battle lasting for several  hours, in which he succeeded in  killing   sergeant   Porteous, ��� Andy  -yankuren,-keeper-of-the-police=jailr  and Alfred J. Bloomfield, a young  boy, and fatally wounding corporal  John F. Lally, John Banoiller, ox-  policeman Frank Evans, A. S. Lb-  clote, one of the leading confectioners of the city and more or less  seriously shooting several citizens,  the negro desperado Robert Charles,  Avho killed captain Day and patrolman Lamb and badly wounded  officer Mora, was smoked out of his  hiding place in the heart of the  residential section of the' city and  literally shot to pieces.  The tragedy was one of the most  remarkable in the history of the  city, and 20,000 people, soldiers,  policemen and citizens were gathered ��� round , the square where  Charles was finally put to death.  Tremendous excitement reigned in  New Orleans as the battle went on  between the police and the citizens  and the negro with his Winchester.  After the tragedy avbs over  statements were made that the man  killed was not really the desperado  Avho had killed Day and Lamb, but  papers found on his person and the  fact that he fought so desperately  for his life, and shot so accurately,  seem to leave little doubt that the  right man was put to death.  Gompers' Mission Failed.

However this may, be,1 it is quite  certain that* the' attempts, of the  French, Italian and other consuls to  get direct replies from Pekin have  utterly'failed,- and it is pointed out  the'ability to supply .'the legations  with fruit and .vegetables involves  the conclusion that communication  is not impeded by-,the Boxers. Thus,  despite, the/daily alternation   of  hopes   and -fears^ the   reiterated  Chinese assertions of the safety of  the   ministers.'/fail' to   carry  conviction, ,and .'the/ decision- of Tthe  United-States not"to delay, military  measures'is approved was -the' only  .course to'piU'HueT'^V&Nv,^   "    '-���'.,'  The Daily News says negotiations  with   the   Chinese   authorities,   if  there be any ..authorities in China,  are useless. ' It is said that as early  as July 12th an appeal from the  emperor of China to queen Victoria,  for mediation dated * July 3rd was  handed to the marquis of Salisbury  and it is understood. that the other  powers   were   not   communicated  Avith until July 20th.  - The Shang-Hai correspondent of  the Daily Express asserts that three  versions of sir Claude MacDonald's  letter of July 0 th are current there,  and that it is believed that all three  originated from Chinese sources. He  add, however, that Li Hung Chang  says the legation' .party ought to  reach Tien-Tsin on Sunday.  The Morning Post's correspondent at Che-Foo, Aviring on Wednesday, says there is a rumor that  prince Ching rescued the legation-  ^ersandconveyedthem���to_a���place  of safety.  Eighteen missionaries have been  massacred at Tung Chau, where the  churches have been burned.  General sir Alfred Gazelle has  started for Taku.  THREE SUITSJF INTEREST  Mining ClaimsTnvolved.  Three writs which were issued  yesterday in the supreme court are  the first steps in actions Avhich will  be of peculiar interest' to all prospectors and mining men. In the  first two the point raised, is a nice  point of mining law, and one which  has never before been tested in the  courts. The third case, if successful and S. S. Taylor, Q. C, is confident of Avinning, -will revolutionize  the popular idea of the' accepted  law as to the relocation of mineral  claims.  The first two writs are in the  actions of ��Lawr vs. Mowat and  Lowr vs. Parker. The first action  asks that D. T. Mowat's location of,  the Britannic be declared unlawful,  arid the second that Charles Parker's retention of the Blue Jay be  pronounced illegal. The facts are  as follows:  The plaintiff, W. Lawr, located  the Ida on Morning Mountain and  also the Rebecca, an extension of  the former, and after obtaining the  necessary permission, he did assessment work for both claims on the  Ida, and duly received a certificate  of work. When the Venus was  surveyed, however, it appeared  that the work by mistake had been  done'inside the.-Venus* boundary  line. Later on D. T. MoAvat; relocated the Ida as the Britannic, and"  W. H. Warren tho Rebecca'as the  Blue Jay. ��� Subsequently Warren  sold the Blue Jay to J. F. Holden,  Avho resold it to Charles Parker,  hence the actions.  < In* the third case H. M. Paulson is  adversing J. Hendryx' application for a crown grant on the  "Pearl, situated on Duncan river. It  appears that in 1898 the plaintiff  staked the property as the Iron  ,Chief, and has received two certificates of work thereon. ,' J. Hendryx"  restaked, the, claim as the Pearl,  surveyed it and is.; applying for a  croAvn grant as stated above. ' Mr.  Hendryx' contention is that when  the Iron Chief was located, the.  ground was already occupied by a  .valid.-;.locatioQ,,,.-and ;. that jconser.  quently Paulson's location was'void.'  Subsequently that location" ran out,  aud then Hendryx restaked it.  out the southern * provinces of  China. The organization is distinctly anti-foreign, and anti-  Manchu and members of Canton  troops are enrolled in its ranks. A  rumor is current in Canton that the  ''Triads" are preparing for a night  attack on the Shameen, and that  the first sign will be the absconding  of native servants. The greatest  apprehension prevails although at  present Canton is ' quiet. Many  "Triads" have been arrested in  Hong Kong during the last few  months.       ROWDIES ARE UNDISMAYED  BUSINESS IS MUCH BRISKER.  Prince Tuan Reported Killed.  London, July 28.���The Shang-Hai  correspondent of the Daily Express  wiring yesterday says : "It is reported here that a large section of  the Boxers has revolted against  prince Tuan, alleging that he is  making a tool of them for his .oavii  ends. A desporate conflict took  place outside, of Pekin on Sunday.  Prince Tuan personally led his fol-  lowers, tAvo of the generals having  deserted him. The battle lasted  several hours, and prince Tuan was  defeated and killed."   . ...  Legations Reported Safe;  Brussels, July 27,���The Belgian  vice-consul at Tien-Tsin, in a  despatch dated Che-Fob, July 26th,  says: "It is persistently reported  here that the legations are safe and  sound and under the protection of  the Chinese government. About  ten thousand Chinese soldiers are  entrenched at Pei-Tsang, 14 kilometres from Tien-Tsin."  To Bring Li Back.  Hong Kong, July 27���It is asserted here that the Chinese transport  now coaling at Canton is going to  Shang-Hai to bring Li Hung Chang  back. The United States auxiliary  cruiser Buffalo, and the British  third-class cruiser MohaAvk have arrived here.  SOUTH AFRICAN CAMPAIGN  Roberts' Fresh Advance.  Neav York, July 27.���A dispatch  to the Tribune from London says:  The campaign in South Africa  has taken an unexpected turn.  Lord Roberts' army has advanced  to Brobkhorst Spruit, about half  way betAveen Pretoria and Middel-  burg. He is leaving Pretoria and  Johannesburg under a strong guard  and acting on the theory that the  Boers profit by his halts and lose  whenever his commands are in  motion. The Boers have attempted  to thwart hs plans by raids west  "and nortirofTPretbria and to hold  him back by hanging on his flanks,  just as tliey did when he set out  from Bloemfontein to Pretoria.  He has again pushed ahead aud is  striking for the gatoAvays to the  Lydenburg district, leaving lord  Methnn and general Baden-Powell  to suppress the raiders in the western district and Colonel BroadAVOod  to pursue genoral Dewet across the  Vaal. It is not clear whether DeAvet  has made a fresh haul of 200 prisoners belonging to tho Welsh fusileers  near Rooderval or Avliother this incident is an amended form of the  previous account of the capture of  300 Highlanders.  The situation is most confusing  and veterans are shaking their  hands over it, but apparently lord  Roberts has decided that the best  method of suppressing guerrilla  warfare is to follow the raihvay toward the entrance of the Lydenburg district and to cut off Boer  communications with the only remaining base of supplies at Delagoa  Bay. The plan is" a bold one, since  commandoes of raiders are proAvling  about in many directions, but lord  Roberts counts without doubt upon  effective support from sir Redvers  Buller and also upon the paralyzing  effect of a renewal of the adA-ance  toAvard Kruger's last stronghold.  Triads Become Active.  Hong Kong, July 27.���The signs  of increasing activity on the part of  a secret society known as the  "Triads" are causing alarm. The  Boxers are believed to be an offshoot of the "Triads," whose ramifications are widespread through-  Inflammatory Placards.  London, July 28.���The Canton  correspondent of , the Daily Telegraph, in a dispatch dated Wednesday, says:  - There are daily arrests of Boxers  and smugglers loaded with arms  and ammunition. Execution quickly  follows. But the rowdy element  remains practically undismayed.  In the country districts, the people  are more threatening * and bolder  than in the city. Inflammatory  placards are freely posted, such as  the following:  "We, the Chinese children of the  sages, are faithful and filial, as well  as modest. How does it come to  pass then that any of us so far fort-  gets himself; as to become the  proselyte of a barbarian religion ?

I  v  ��he ��ribmte*  .J The Canadian Northern   is the  i- name  of the new railway  which  /Messrs.   Mackenzie   &   Mann   are  ';" booming as a new transcontinental  '-* line to compete with tiie Canadian  -Pacific.    The project has  created  much speculation, but the public is  ' not yet settled   in its own -"mind,  .whether   the �� prospect which the  hew road offers of competition with  _ the Canadian Pacific is illusory or  'real. -Its promoters have certainly  , had several clashes with the Cana-  . dian Pacific interest, but there is a  ^suspicion  that   something   in  the  nature of an -understanding exists-  between the two companies.   The  ' proposition which the new company  lays before the British investor is  the taking over of the Rainy River,  '   Manitoba, South Western, Dauphin  ��� and other-links-of-railway-in-On-  tario and Manitoba, and the building of connectors east and feeders  as far west as the Rockies, Avith  ultimately an outlet. on the Pacific  Coast.    Something more may probably be   heard   of . the   Canadian  Northern   before the close of the  present session   of the  provincial  legislature.   Its promoters may desire to build into that   northern  wilderness of British Columbia in  ��� which   Joseph  Martin   feared his  . state-owned raihvay project would  be starved to death.  , To facilitate the delivery of the  mail  in the city of Toronto the  postmaster-general     has     ordered  three automobiles from the National  Cycle and  Automobile   Company.  ���  The machines are to be delivered  inside of a month and will be employed in speeding mail, Which has  been previously sorted oh the mail  trains, from the union station to  the several city delivery offices.   In  the East the postal facilities are  worked out upon a basis of seconds.  In Kootenay a day is used as the  unit in reckoning.  POSTMASTER-GENERAL      MULOCK  does not intend that his fair-wages  resolution shall be a meaningless  set of words. At Hull the contractor on- the post office building  refused to recognize the union scale  of wages for stone masons. The  matter was brought to the attention of the postmaster-general, who  is also acting minister of public  works. His reply was that the  government had not paid the contractor anything upon account, and  that nothing would be paid unless  the contractor paid the current  rate of wages. It is needless to  say that the union scale Avas recognized shortly afterwards.  The efficiency of the local fire  department again saved Nelson  from a serious fire yesterday. There  AA'ere a few minutes lost in getting  the alarm turned in but the delay  did not result in any additional  loss. The response of the department was prompt, and three Avell  directed streams of water speedily  brought what looked like the  makings of a big fire under control.  It almost looks as if it is impossible'  for a fire to gain much headway in  Nelson. Nelson has the men and  the means for fighting fires, and its  luck never deserts it.  Hamilton must be a sadly degenerate place. Its people do not play  baseball on Sunday, but they will  not go to church. So great is the  falling off in church attendance  since the warm weather set in that  it is now proposed to close three-  quarters of the city churches during  the summer. The advocates of this  move say that it will, economize in  light and effort, aud that by consolidating the congregations worshippers will not get lonely during  the service. ^  Co-operation in Mining.  Lardeau Eagle.  Seven weeks ago there Avas a  mineral claim on the Silver Cup hill  knoAvn as the Triune, Avith one  assessment done; no trail, and no  money to develop it. A few miners  co-operated, leased the property  and "with the owners cut a trail  from' Ten-Mile to the claim. Last  week a 20-ton shipment of clean  high-grade ore came down through  Ferguson on its Avay to the Trail  smelter, and two ton a day is now  being sacked; all this in seven weeks.  Today the co-operative labor of six  men has made a shipping mine in  seven weeksi without one cent of  assistance from outside capital.'The  local merchant will not even have  to Avait sixty days for his account,  as the returns from the' first shipment will be here in a few days.  The Eagle does not wish to convey  the idea that this could be repeated'  in every case ; but fellow "waitors"  if there was more co-operation of  labor and less waiting for capital,  this district would' soon take its  rank in the front row. The time to  begin is right now. -  Republic Mill.  Major R. J. Edwards-Leckie,  manager of the Republic mine, is  registered at the Hotel Phair. He  states that the Republic. camp is  looking very bright, and that the  commencement 'of operations at the  Republic "mine mill will inaugurate  a boom in the camp. The mill -has  a daily capacity of 200 tons, and  Avhen the furnaces, now almost  erected, are complete the plant will  -be started.���Republic-ores-only-will-  be handled on the start, a large  quantity of ore having been  accumulated on the dumps and in  the ore bins. The republic people  hrve the control of the Quilp property, and the ores from this mine  will be milled when the Republic  dumps are someAvhat reduced. The  Tom Thumb and Lone Pine properties desire to send their product to  the Republic mill, and as contracts  will probably be closed, a considerable addition to the capacity of the  plant is likely to be made before  the year is out.  Yesterday's Mining Records.  Yesterday's mining records were:  Certificates of improvements���To  Thomas R. Rrench and Isaac Erick-  son of Kaslo, on the Venango and  Shenango mineral claims.  Locations���The Old Hat on divide  between Forty-nine and Bird creeks  ���about one and a half miles from  Government trail, by Robert Spencer ; the Richmond on.

Certificates of work���To Roderick  McDonald on the Golden Queen and  Margaretta; to Fred Boyer on the  Apex : to Daniel English on the St.  Peter and St. Jacob; to C. A. Cafihi  on the Barnhill.  ington may one day rival the  Payne. The old owners shipped  $300,000 worth of ore but they did  little or no development. They  simply took out all the ore in sight  and did nothing to improve the  mine. The present owners Major  Montgomery of New York, W. E.  Mann of Spokane.andJ.L.Retallack  will pursue systematic development.  R. Foran and J. Cliism returned  from the head of Lake creek .on  Sunday, where they have been doing  assessment Avork on the J. C. group,  consisting of six claims, the Win-  chestei", Suoav Storm, J. C, Lone  Star, Smuggler! and Utica, says.the  Lardeau Eagle. The open cuts made  expose some fine looking ore and  Mr. Foran says there is "slathers"  of it from one end of the group to  the other, in fact Mr. Foran has  staked an extension and is still on  the big strong leads. The J. ��� C.  group is near the great "lime dyke,"  aud horses can be ridden right from  Ferguson to the property, as also to  -the Empire,-Abbott, Wagner and  well-knoAvn groups in that area of  country.  The Whitewater has been the  chief shipper over the Kaslo & Slocan shis month, though the Payne  has shipped more over the Kaslo &  Slocan and C. P. R. combined. The  shipments via this port from July  1st to 10th totalled 305 tons, from  July 10th to 25th they were 830  tons, making the total for the 25  days this month 1135 tons.���Kaslo  Kootenaian.  There arc persistent rumors that  the War Eagle company intend to  do something towards' opening up  the CroAvn Point and Tiger on Lake  mountain. The compressor that  was borrowed from this mine was  lent to the Centre Star, but as that  mine is now having a first-class  plant installed and as the road to  the Crown Point is still in good  order, having been repaired for the  purpose of getting this machinery  out .of Tiger creek valley, there  should be no trouble in replacing  the plant if needed. There are  some very good mining buildings,  manager's house, boarding houses,  etc., still on the ground, Avhich have  been kept in thorough repair ever  since the shut down.

London Financial News.  The third annual general meeting of the shareholders of the  Hastings B. C. Exploration Syndicate, limited, was held in London  on July 5th. The syndicate owns,  among other properties, the Arlington group near Erie of which Mr.  Mackenzie is engineer in charge.  In "his address to the shareholders,  the chairman, James Head, said, in  part, as follows:  All the money has been spent in  actually developing the mine, and  in doing so in as economical a  manner as possible. Careful prospecting has'been followed by judicious development, and today,  although we can point to the  Arlington as beiug actually a mine,  we havo hardly bought any machinery. Such as we did buy wo only  obtained as required. Pumping  machinery wo bought' at an early  stage, and we got that second hand.  It has served its purpose, and now  1 hope we can do ' without it. As  we developed the property it was  necessary to introduce air compressors in order to carry on the work  more rapidly, and for the last six  months or more these air compressors have been at work.  In course of our developments we  found it necessary to run a tunnel  -at-the-380���foot-levol-;-a-fault^had  occurred in the vein, aud we went  up the slide and succeeded in rediscovering the vein. The tunnel is  about 750 feet long, and we' had  several objects in view in driving  ib. One was to relieve the mine of  the water and to obviate the necessity of using any pumping machinery. Another object was to test at  what angle the vein ran, as we expected to intersect this in the tunnel. We carried that work out  successfully, and discovered the vein  about 220'feet from the mouth, of  the tunnel. It lay rather flat at  the point of intersection, and since  then we have been upraising, and  have struck the vein at several  points and tested it thoroughly.  There is no doubt that we have a  large body of ore between the rediscovery point and where the tunnel  intersects the vein. To give you an  example of the amount of water  we had to contend with, I may tell  you that during the latter part of  the boring the pumps rather broke  down, so the water was allowed to  accumulate in that part of the mine.  As you are aware, at the 380 foot  level we have 500 feet of drift north  and south; we have also upraises  about every 100 feet, all in' ore.  When they came to break'through  the last piece of rock the water  was 90 feet up the incline, and the  result was that mining toward the  latter part of the work became  somewhat dangerous.  We, naturally, did not want any  of the miners to, be drowned. Our  manager and the engineer out there  are, however, both very careful  men, and they put in the last shots  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  in a most scientific manner, with  the result that the wall was broken  down, and the whole of the water  ran out, carrying away the refuse  dump. The whole of the water  came out of the mine in five minutes. The connection was so beautifully made that when they had*  cleared it out and finished knocking  down the wall the manager, in.  writing to me, said : "Standing at  the foot of the incline it was just  like a gun barrel, it was so straight."  That shows that our manager'and  engineer are men who know how to  take a survey, which is satisfactory.  At the same time as we "were  running that tunnel we were  running another���the intermediate,  or No. 2 tunnel���about 100 feet, below the No 1, and some distance  down the side of the hill. , In that  we encountered pre at 300 feet the  day that I arrived, and .we have  since encountered ore at 400 feet,  which was exactly at the point  anticipated ��� by the surveyor. As  at that point we re-encountered the  vein which had faulted up above,  the surface shows that our surveyor's theory was absolutely correct, as shown in the plan before  you. That tunnel will also prove  of great advantage to us, not only  iu the general working of the mine  but inasmuch as it -tests a - further  500 feet of vein matter, so that  altogether I estimate that we have  1000 feet of backs between us and  the fault. They are now driving  north and south on the vein, and I  havo just had very satisfactory  reports, from both our superintendent and mining engineer as to the  recent developments and the work  that is being carried out.  When we bought the Original  -there-was an-open-cut-close-to-the -  tunnel, and while, I was there we  prospected it, aud it seemed to me  that wo were going to meet with  something rather better than usual.  But I could hardly believe the vein  was in the place it was said to be ;  I was inclined to think that it was  going to follow the tendency of the  vein we had been going on so far,  and roll. It was lying at an angle  of sixty degrees, dipping east, and  I thought it would roll round and  take the formation of the Arlington  vein. However, I am glad to say  that we have just received a cablegram from our: manager, in which  he says:  "To all appearances have discovered vein in the new workings of the  upper cut Original. The direction  of the vein is northerly, and it dips  sixty degrees east towards Arlington. Cuts a formation of the finest  showing seen on the group. Mr.  Yorke says recent developments  double the value of property."  During the last year we have  made considerable additions to your  properties. When we last met we  only owned the Arlington and the  Arlington Fraction of this group ;  but we have added to them the  Directorate Fraction, the La Dura,  the Micawber, the Micawber Fraction, and the La Dura Fraction, the  Strontian, and the Fee Donald���all  these have been surveyed with the  exception of the Fee Donald, and  that will be surveyed shortly. We  have the crown grants of the  Arlington and Arlington Fraction,  and have made the necessary  applications for all the rest  of   the   group.     The   claims    I  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.  Capital Authorized $2,500,000  Capita! Paid up $2,458,603  Rest  $1,700,000  D. R. Wilkie, General Manager.  E. Hay, Inspector.  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Street  J. M. LAY, Manager.  have mentioned form a very valuable addition; for on several of  them we have already discovered  ore, and as I have just shown you  in the Original particularly, there is  no doubt we have a very valuable  property.  In the Micawber we discovered  some very fine ore indeed. It was  principally surface' ore, but extremely rich; we have shipped 160  tons of it to the smelter, and the  returns have given us $10,000.  (Applause.) We have also in sight  an equal, amount' of similar ore,  which will be shipped in due course.  That alone would represent -C4000.  Against that ��4000,, which we  shall have actually in cash, you  will see under the head of property  account our actual total expenditure. Apart from. the Arlington  claim itself there was ��2100 spent  in regard to all those ten claims  appearing in the list, and I do not  think much money was wasted in  their purchase. We located most  of them ourselves, and they cost us  nothing beyond the cost of recording. The Original we purchased  for '��2000, after we had rediscovered the vein; until we had done  so we did not feel justified in making any further purchases, but the  moment we did so we took an option on the Original. We had  some difficulty with the owner, but  he had committed himself to paper,  and could not get out of his bargain, although he tried to. In Mr.  Mackenzie we have a very able  man, and one who knows most of  the customs and manners of mining camps, and he was not to be  outwitted, and the result of it is  that our ownership of that claim is  absolutely admitted now, wliich is  amatter-for-congratulation.  Among other difficulties that the  tunnel solved was that of haulage,  which on a place like oui- hill is a  considerable item. We are 4,500  feet above the level of the sea, and,  although only four miles from the  railway, very steep hauling is necessary. We made the road ourselves for two miles, and made it on  - the most economical principles; but  by the introduction of the tunnels,  we can haul all our ore through' the  tunnel, instead of hoisting it in the  shaft. Our engineer, in his report  today, estimates that the amount  of ore above the 382 foot level  should realize a net profit of': $180,-  000. It is, however, very difficult  indeed to make an estimate at all  in regard to this vein; but if he is  right in his estimate, we have be-  ,low that fault disclosed the vein  for a further 1,000 feet, which  should therefore produce about  three times $180,000. (Applause.)  That would more than give us back  the whole of our capital.  The chairman said as regarding  the value of the ore, he thought  they might take it as on an average  of $30 to the ton. A number of  samples had been sent which ran  higher, and that was the lowest  estimate that had been put on them  by their manager, and he thought  they could thoroughly rely upon it.  Fight With Yaquis.  Phoenix, Arizona, July .26.���  Harry Tharaldsen, of Frisco and  New York, stopping here temporarily, owner of several claims in  Mexico, received a message this  evening from the manager of the  mine near Rodeo, state of Durango,  Mexico, telling of a hard fight on  Monday between a mixed force of  Mexican soldiers, augmented by  fifty ranchers and a party of  Yaqui Indians. Five whites were  killed and about twenty wounded,  including one officer, and the  Indians lost many more. For  several weeks troops have been  rounding up the reds in the lower  range of the Sierra Madre mountains, and three or four slight skirmishes have occurred, the* Indians  always in small force. On Monday  a party of fifty were corralled in a  pass between two ��� hills. Two companies of troops advanced through  a defile and met a band of 150 reds.  After fierce fighting the Mexicans  wero driven in disorder from the  pass. Couriers were sent out and  called in reinforcements of cowmen  and miners and an effort was made  to surround the entire band. The  Indians resisted fiercely, both sides  fighting from behind rocks. After  a hard battle off half an hour the  Indians broke through the force in  the rear and escaped into the mountains. The . Indians are noAV  divided into small bands through  the mountains. It is believed they  will not again -collect in force.  Miners and ranchmen ��� have abandoned work and gathered together  to better protect themselves in case  of further trouble.  i __���____���_____._____________________.���-_.  Freight Bates to Orient. '  President Hill, of the Great  Northern railroad, announces that  when his two gigantic steamships  are completed and on the trans-  Pacific service, he will establish a  through freight rate of not*more  than $8 a ton from Buffalo and  other points on the Great Lakes to  Yokohama, Nagasaki, Hong Kong,  Shang-Hai and other ports on the  coasts of China and'* Japan. The  rate may be put .down to $7, half  in either case to^go to the railroad  end of the business, and the other  half to the steamship end. No  statement has been made in years  that is considered so seriously by  the officials of other railroads as  this, says a St. Paul dispatch to the  -Boston���Transcript,���for���if���it���is  carried into effect it will probably  mean that many of them would be  forced to stop . the handling of  through freight* It is even said  that such low charges would give  the Great Northern a practical  monopoly of all freight bound from  the East to trans-Pacific ports, unless the Northern Pacific and Canadian Pacific, which cover practically the same territory, and both  of which have Oriental steamship  lines, should meet the rate. In any  event, it is not seeiv; how the railroads to the south "could compete,  as they have much longer hauls, and  none of them, with the exception of  the Santa Fe, (which, however, does  not reach the iron districts of the  Great Lakes and contiguous territory), has a through route of its  own to the localities that furnish  most of the commodities that are  used in China and Japan.  STORYETTES.  On one occasion, when von Buelow  had to conduct an orchestral concert at which a piece written by an  aristocratic amateur was to be performed, the composer requested  permission to direct a rehearsal,  and, on obtaining it, opened a parcel containing seventy pencils,  which he handed to the members of  the band, asking them to mark his  intentions in their parts as he would  give them by word of mouth. Hans  von Buelow noted this matter of  detail, and left the hall. Presently  he returned, also with a parcel,  and, on resuming his place at the  desk, gravely handed out seventy-  pieces of india-rubber, with which  the players were to erase the directions which the composer had  given them.       The Atlanta Journal tells of an  old man in Georgia named Jack  Baldwin, who, having lost his hat  in an old dry well one day, hitched  a rope to a stump and let himself  down. A wicked wag named Neal  came along just-then and, quietly-  detaching'a bell from Baldwin's old  blind horse, approached the well,'  bell in hand, and began" to ting-a-  ling. Jack thought the old horse  was coming, and said: "Hang the  old blind horse; he's coming this  way, sure, and he ain't got no more  sense than to fall in on me���whoa,  Ball!" The sound came closer.  "Great Jerusalem! The old blind-  fool will be right on top of me in a  minit���whoa, Ball���whoa, Ball!"  Neal kicked a little dirt on Jack's  head and Jack .began to pray: "Oh,  Lord, have mercy on���whoa, Ball���  a poor sinner; I'm gone now���whoa,  Ball���our Father, who art in���  whoa, Ball���hallowed be thy���gee,  Ball! gee!   what'll I do?"���name.  Now-1 lay me down to si gee,  Ball!" [Just then in fell more dirt.]  "Oh, Lord, if you ever intend to do  anything forme���back, Ball! whoa!  ���thy kingdom come���gee, Ball!  Oh, Lord, you know I- was baptized  in Smith's mill-dam���whoa, Ball!  ho ! up! murder! whoa!" Neal  could hold in no longer, and shouted  a laugh which might have been  heard two miles, which was about  as far as Jack chased him when he  got out.    Booker T. Washington tells the  following story of a member of the  "po'h white trash," who endeavored  to cross a stream by means of a  ferry owned by a black man.  "Uncle Mose,"says the white man,  "I want to cross, but I hav'nt got  no money."  Uncle Mose scratched his head.  "Doan' you got no money't all ?" he  queried.  "No," said the way-faring stranger.    "I haven't a cent."  "But it don't cost but' three  cents," insisted Uncle Mose, "ter  cross deferry."  "I know," said the white man'  "but I havn't got the three cents."  Uncle Mose was in a quandary.  "Boss," he said, "I done tole you  wliat. 'Er man what's got no three  cents am jes' ez well off on dis side  er der river as on de odder."
