NELSON:  F&IDAY-MORNING AUGUST 10 1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  u  COMMANDER OF THE ALLIES  May Possibly be "Waldersee.  .^Washington, August 9.���The  subject of the* appointment of  count Waldersee to command the  international forces iu China has  been presented to the United States  government, but no answer has yet  been returned.  Count Waldersee is regarded by  the authorities here as an eminent  soldier, and it -is believed that he  will bo satisfactory. It is stated  that bis selection would be for a  campaign of much broader scope  than that iu which - our forces are  engaged, as the present movement  is for the relief of the ministers in  I'ekin, and count Waldersee, who is  now in Germany, cannot possibly  reach Chiua until that has beeu  accomplished or defeated. It is  thought by this government that it  is not necessary to immediately decide upon a commander for a future  campaign. The matter will be taken  up with president McKiniey when  he" arrives in Washington next  week.  Berlin, August 0.���Field marshal count von Waldersee. recently  appointed to the supreme command  of the German forces in China, and-  looked upon in some quarters as  likely to be chosen as commander-  in-chief of the international troops,  was interviewed in the evening by  the correspondent of the Associated  Press shortly after his amvalin  Berlin. "My appointment," said  generaKvon Waldersee,,"is due entirely to the initiative of emperor  William. I shall start j for . China,  going probably by way of San  Francisco, in a short time. I am  fully aware of the great difficulty  :I shall have to meet in China, and  of the extreme responsibility of my"  -, position there, but I shall do my  best to prove myself ��� worthy of the  honor and confidence placed in me  - by the kaiser.   Countess von ' Wal-~  * dersee -will-; accompany ���me to the  United States. ,~~   '      . ��� -��� .  It   is~ understood that emperor*  AWJlliani some^weeks ago broached  the "subject of the ��� chief command  "   to co.unt von Waldersee, personally.  *b.asing bJs.*proposal^upon��the-_cpnV  r  c-fftioA-Vthat all the other' powers"  should acquiesce in'the appointment.  As to, this latter ppint^diplomatic  negotiations' have been,"' going "on.  ,during the last"few days*. JL Emperor.  ��� Nicholas,with' Avhom  the' "counts is  .   an, especial favorite, consented, and  France followed somewhat reluctantly.     Austria,    Hungary     arid  Italy -  quickly    consented.    " The  .  acquiescence of the United States  . v and, Great Britain   will   next   be  .solicited. The German foreign office  - told the Associated Press correspondent this evening that the consent  * of the other powers had virtually  been secured for count von Waldersee as chief."  the shipment of American citizens  as muleteers at New Orleans on  British transports. In this instance  Mr. Stowe remarks that he sends  home free all who apply to him,  but adds : "I no sooner < clear one  vessel than another comes 'into  port .with more Americans who  have been so foolish as to ship with  mules for this country. Over 500  have arrived and further shipments  of these muleteers ought to be prevented. The means used to obtain  men at New Orleans as told me  by the men are simply disgraceful."  - Murdered Americans.  Manila, July 3, via San Francisco, August 8.���From many sec-  ���tions of-the archipelago news of-the  atrocious murder of Americans and  others by the insurgents is received.  Three American miners were murdered at Bantan island and two  loyal natives were killed at Santa,  Cruse. A report of a ghastly crime  following major Blaxino's capture  by the Americans, comes through  official channels. After major  Maxino was taken prisoner by our  troops at Unisana, a gang of Tul-  isanese killed his "father-in-law, his  wife, four of his children and his  ���nephew, butchering and torturing  them and robbing the family of  about $11,000 iu money and jewelry.  A detachment of six men under  captain Newbury, of the thirtieth  infantry, with,, major Maxino, as  guide, encountered the desperadoes,  taking thirteen prisoners, besides  recovering a portion of the jewelry  and $1200 of the money.  Troops from India.  Simla, August 9.���Including the  fourth brigade, the strength of the  force proceeding to China is 440  British officers, l,064l non-commissioned and native officers, 13,970  men, 11,850 followers, 1,150 drivers,  2,520 horses, 4,800 ponies and mules,  12 guns, 14 Maxims, and 1,800 imperial service troops. It is expected  "that the entire force will have  sailed before the middle of next  -month.  Sands Muleteers Home.  Washington, August 9.���The department of state is in receipt of a  dispatch from the consul general of -  the United States at Cape Town,  dated July 0tb; further relating to  GREAT POWERS TOO BUSY  To Meddle, in South Africa.  Berlin, August 9.���The foreign  office, referring today to .the presence of Boer reverses and to Dr.  Leyds in Berlin, said that the  legation was here in an official  capacity only and that it was not  likely that any power would''endeavor'to secure, favorable peace  terms for the Boers in the'final  settlement. Dr. Leyds and the  delegation, however"- had "a conference this morning with Herr  von Dorenthal, privy councillor,  who is representing count von Buelow during the absence of .tiie minister of foreign affairs on, his  vacation.  3 . _      .        _. *   -  . Later in the day Mr. Fischer, of  the delegation, said to the correspondent of the Associated Press in  the presence of Dr. Leyds: '-'The  burghers of the South African Republic don't intend to ��� give up the  fight. They .will -take to, guerrilla  warfare, splitting up into small detachments, and they,will doubtless  disturb* the British, inflicting in the  aggregate more damage in this  way than they could inflict in a big  war." *        ���      " .

The work on  the' road swas progressing. In  a couple" of months there would be  100v miles built from Port Arthur  towards the Atikoakan iron mines.  The line would reach the mines this  fall, but would be a distance of 145  miles westward from Port Arthur.  In about two months there will also  be 1000 miles built southeast from  Winnipeg to the south of the Rainy  river. This will leave about 142  miles to be completed next year.  It should be mentioned that the  Canadian Northern embraces from  Port Arthur to the Saskatchewan  river by Winnipeg.' "'  __^_iIntense_Heatun_Toronto. * ,  Toronto, August 0.���The weather  continues stiflingly hot. The thermometer Monday and Tuesday was  between 97 and 98 and appears the  same today. The ., death rate  among young children is terribly  high. Between noon on Saturday  and Tuesday afternoon 48 deaths  were registered of which 22 were  children under one year. The prevailing disease among the latter is  cholera infantum.  For Gallant Conduct.  Ottawa, August 9���General Hutf  ton has forwarded the names of the  following to the field marshal, the  commander-in-chief, for gallant  conduct: Lieutenant H. A. David-  sou, superintendent N. W. M. P.;  lieutenant W. Inglis, late captain  of the Berkshire regiment; corporal  Fred Morden; , lance corporal  Thomas Miles ; private Kerr; private Miles.  -The  Wholesalers Suspend.  London, Ontario, August 9.  wholesale firm of G. A. McGillivray  & Co., have suspended payment,  McGillivray had invested too freely  in real estate. The firm had also  suffered heavy losses in Manitoba  and the Northwest. It is thought  arrangements will be made whereby the business will be continued.  In Memory of Humbert.  Paris, August 0.���In almost  every city of France special services were held today in memory of  the late king Humbert of Italy. The  memorial ceremonies in Paris were  very impressive.  THE   CHINESE   SITUATION  Allied Force of 50,000.  Washington, August -9.���The  capture of Yang Tsun, the first  objective point of the international  forces, was the supreme news of  importance received today on the  Chinese situation. The first word  of this capture, "effected last Monday, came to the signal office at the  war department - from colonel  Scriven, the general officer at Che'-  Foo. THalf an hour after this message a cablegram came from general'  Chaffee, giving additional details of  the capture and showing that it-  had been at the cost of about sixty  casualties among the -American  troops.  - "Hardly less important - was a dispatch from general Terauchi, second  in command of the Japanese staff,  sent to the war office of - Japan and  transmitted - to * the legation here,  stating that, the international army  would total 50,000 men on August  15th to  advance   on   Pekin.   This  dispatch   stated   that   on-the 4th,  when it was forwarded, the advance  had not begun. 4 This was at first  incomprehensible,;in view of the  fact that fightinglhad. actually occurred.   -But the latter' statement,  that the international force would  total 150,000 men on the 15th, appears to make clear general Ter-  auchi's meaning and to reconcile it  with general Chaffee's dispatches.  The present'movement of some  16,000-men doubtless is, viewed in  the light of a reconnaisance in force,  the movement of the army of 50,-  000 to follow on the ,15th." This  makes clear the meaning of general  Chaffee's dispatch that Yang Tsung  was the objective point, j The war  department has been   puzzled on  this point; * It would appear, however, from general Terauchi's "dispatch that the first force., of 16,000  men, having opened up communications to Yang Tsun, brought forward supplies and established this  advance .base, the.' way would then  .be , clear  for cthe-advance of the  larger force.bh-'th"ejl5th.,. The capture of Yang Tsuii 'is' therefore an  important strategic branch of the  fast ,maturing;military plans.', -,'j.  ��� Aside from, the military ^developments of the day, the diplomatic  aspect   was   made   clearer.by- the  publication of a 'demand made by  the United States upon the imperial  government of China   and  transmitted to minister Wu last evening.   Minister Wu worked assiduously on the message during the  day, translating it first from English   to   Chinese and then into the  cipher code of China. ��� Owing to the  gravity of the document, this work  required exactness and time, but it  is probable that the message is by  this time on its way to the Chinese  government. . This action by   the  United States was solely on its own  responsibility, -without   consulting  other powers as to the advisability  of  the   demand.   The. J use of the  word      demand      in     the    note  -thoroughly-^indicates-the^urgeney"  of the message.   In the technical  parlance of diplomacy it differs from  an ultimatum, which usually fixes  a date or sets a time within which  there must be compliance, the failure of compliance during this stated  time being a ground'for war. While  a demand is less specific as to the  time of compliance, it none the less  asserts a positive right which the  government will enforce if the right  be not conceded.   Owing to the difficulties   of    communication   with  Pekin it is expected that some days  must elapse before an answer can  be received, and there is a disposition to grant all reasonable time  for its transmission.  Berlin, August 0.���The German  foreign office, in confirming to the  correspondent of 'the Associated  Press this afternoon the report of  count von Waldersee's appointment,  said this was only to the command  of the German forces in China and  that the question as to whether he  would command all the international forces had not yet been,  settled.  Berlin, August 9.���The foreign  office has received the following  dispatch from Herr von Buelow, first  secretary of the German legation  at Pekin, dated Tsin Anko: '"Since  July 21st, the situation has not  changed. There have been neither  attacks by the troops or masses  upon us, nor shell fire, only desultory rifle fire. The health of the  members of the legation is comparatively good."  Berlin, August 9.���The government has another telegram from  Herr von Buelow, first secretary of  the German* legation in Pekin, not  dated, which, says:   "'The French  legation building which was also  destroyed bfy* the Boxers not only  affprtJed shelter to the members of  thcrPrench 'legation, who are all in  good.health,'cbut also to the members of the,Austrian legation, who  soiight refuse there after the complete   destruction   of   their    own  building. ;The    French    legation  building is Surrounded by Boxers."  The nnmtfei- of volunteers from  the army Reserves who have sig;  nified  thei'fr.willinguess to go to  China48said',to^be 120,000.   From  this^numberJitHs understood that a  corps" exceeding-.20,000   ,will    be  formed.   A  portion   of   the corps  will leave within a fortnight,,or as  soon as the cabinet meeting" called  for tomorrow, ihall harve given its  consent to the*project.  ,   London, \Aiigust 10.���41 a.m.���In  the capture.of -Yang Tsung the loss  of the allies, according to a dispatch,  to the DailycExpress' from Che-Foo  on'August 8th, purporting to give  an account of- the engagement; were'  200i the majority of, these* being  killed. ,    '    f - " .

'��� _  ' With the exception of these messages-general Chaffee's report is the  only .report-published by the London morning,papers: telling of the  capture of;" Yang Tsun. The editorials generally incline to the view  that the, progress toward Pekin has  been- splendid-"thus far, but one  which cannot be maintained at the  present rapid Tate, as the concentration'of-supplies "and the establishments���ba"sj2s "will"' .cause inevi7  table delays;. The collector* of customs at Shang-Hai has; received a  routine message 'from sir Robert  Hart, director-general of imperial  customs, showing that the latter is-  still conducting'the business of imperial customs, a rather curious  state of affairs, when taken in conjunction with the words "happily  still-alive," which he included in  the dispatch which was - dated  Pekin, July 27th.  Commenting upon Washington's  latest communication to the Chinese government, the Daily Chronicle  describes it as "idyllic diplomacy,"  and- it declares that the Chinese  attempts to get the ministers to  leave Pekin, as described by M.  Pinchon, have convinced everybody  except the Washington officials that  a steady application of force is the  "only"_argument_Pekin can understand.  Washington, August 0.���Acting  secretary McAdo of the state department tonight made public the  following cablegram from consul  Fowler at Che-Foo, which reached  the department at 11 o'clock:  . "Che-Foo, August 9.���Secretary  of state, Washington. I telegraphed  the governor yesterday protesting  agaiust limiting.my. correspondence  with Conger, and requesting the  governor to forward to Pekin. The  governor telegraphs as follows:  Received note from tsung li yamen,  dated August 5th. Yamen just received an edict permitting ministers to have peaceful secret  telegraphic :���< communication . with  their countries. All ministers at  Pekin have telegrams for transmission to their governments. It  is proposed, after dispatching same,  to send originals to consuls for verification.   (Signed,) 7Fojvler."  Washington, August 9.���A member of the cabinet said today that  there was no question as to the acquiescence of this government in; the  selection of field marshal count von  Waldersee as commander-in-chief  of the allied forces in the Chinese  eampaign. If the count's appointment to command the German  troops meant such selection, the  appointment, it was suggested,  doubtless . meant that the Berlin government proposed largely  to augment its forces in China in  the near future. The same official  added that in all probability the  allied forces would be in possession  of the Chinese capital before count  von Waldersee could land in China.  LEAD MINING WILL BENEFIT  From Advanced Prices.  Kaslo, August 0.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���Wars and rumors of  wars have their effect on the lead  market. It' is noticed here that a  few days ago the price of lead was  higher in London- than New York,  aud siuce then the price in the latter  place has been fixed from London.  This fact is one full of significance  for the silver-lead districts of British Columbia.  G. O. Buchanan, president of the  Kaslo Board of Trade, in an interview today stated that the price of  lead had hot only been higher in  London than in New York, but ,it  had risen, to the highest point attained in recent years there, while  on thev other hand it had fallen in  New York.    On July 16th last, he  pointed out, lead was higher in New  York than in London, being .$3.80  as compared with -��17-10-0, which  is , equal to $3.77.   But on August"  ,1st the price in London rose to $3.90  per 100 pounds net, and forced the  New York price up.   "On the present prices" said Mr. Buchanan, "the  Trail smelter could settle with customers for ore crrrying 50 per cent  lead on a basis better by $8.53 per  ton than could be allowed by United  States smelters.   I have no explanation to offer as to the, decline in  New York- except that it probably  -indicates the inability of the lead  trust to sustain longer an artificial  ���price.?. The rise in London suggests  that   the world-wide demand J. for.  ammunition has absorbed the lead  supply.    Even if an early cessation  of. hostilities arrives the  impetus  given to the war Spirit, the vivid  object /lessons lately presented to  the .world of preparing in peace foiv  war, are.causes calculated to keep'  the. makers of ammunition busy for  years to come.   At the time of the  Civil War in the United Statesrlead  "stood at $200 per ton, or $10 per 100  pounds.   No doubt the nations of  the world will at once get in large  supplies of ammunition and^ those  who are figuring on the contracts  are looking around to see where the  supplies' of lead are coming from.  This is an opportunity for some one  ..to. erect a ^.smelter at-Kaslo.   The  'Trail sinelter isabout-toput up two.  more lead.stacks,-butTn"either it,"nor'  any other, smelter in British Columbia is conveniently, placed for��� the.  treatment, of lead ores, and hone  was located, with primary, reference  to that class of business.' - A smelter  at Kaslo would have "direct communication with the chief source of  supply, which is the Slocan camp.  It would, have open communication  at all sections of the year with the  Crow's Nest Pass terminus and with  the limestone . quarries.   It Avould  have access.by water,with both the  C.P.R. and the Great Northern railway systems,  thus  having  in   its  favor   a   combination   of   circumstances which would enable those  in control of it to command the lead  situation." ��� �����  __Another-important-fact-to-which  Mr. Buchanan referred was this;  namely,' that in view of the present  lead situation the free admission of  Canadian ores into the United  States becomes a matter of small  consequence.  Will Not Wait for .Railways..  . Kaslo, August ��.���[Special to  The Tribune.] ��� Another Lardo-  Duncan concern which is going to  follow the lead of the Lavinah and  will not wait for the raihvay, is the  any previous night this season the  reports from different points along  the river .indicate that'the biff run  expected for several days has not  yet put in an appearance. The reports from the- traps show that a  big school is on its way to the  Fraser and should enter the river  any day now. Most of the boats  avertgefrom fifty, to. 100 for the  whole week on the Fraser.

This compauy is working on  the Giant claim now blocking out  ore. Superintendent F. H. Lantz  who was in Kaslo the other day  said: "The Giant has one of the  best showings in the Lardo. We  have a nice lot of clean ore on the  dump and we haye ore in the No. 1  and No. 2 tunnels. AVe are raising  on the No. 1 and we are going to  continue the No.; 2 in about 100  feet further and then raise to connect with the No. 1 raise. In the  Giant we have about two feet of  concentrating ore and an average of  about six inches of clean ore."  Captain Campbell, A.* Palmer and  E. King have just returned from  Meadow creek, in the Lardo, where  they own the Central, Kaslo and  Lardo claims. They have a showing of six inches of galena. They  have.placed two men at work on  the property.  -     Salmon Catch Poor.  Vancouver, August 0.���The salmon catch continues poor.

Humbert's Funeral Train.
Rome, August 9.—The funeral
train bearing the remains of-king
Humbert left Monsea at 4:28 p.m.
. yesterday accompanied by the duke
of Aosta, the count of Turin and
the duke of Oporto. A large crowd
witnessed its departure in silence.
At 4:40 p.m. the train reached Milan
where all the authorities and an
immense crowd was assembled at
the raihvay station. The widowed
queen and princess Marie Pia
arrived here at 0 o'clock this
evening. In accordance with
the former's desire there was
no reception at the depot.
The party proceeded at onco to the
Quirinal, escorted by the Cuiras-
seurs, the spectators along the route
bowing their heads respectfully.
People from the various cities and
towns through which the train
passed say the populace displayed
signs of the deepest sorrow and of
loyalty. The decoration of Rome
is almost completed and already
the scene is extraordinary. The
bells were tolled-as the coffin was
taken from the royal villa. On the
coffin, which was covered with red
velvet, was the helmet of the dead
king and an Italian flag. King
Victor Emmanuel received the"
prince this evening and will receive
the ministers the first time on Sunday for the signing of decrees.
Not Looking for Territory.
New York, August 9—The Commercial Advertiser today prints the
following special: "Boston, August -9.—Secretary Long -.has left
Hingham for his vacation at Buck-
port, Maine. Before leaving he said:
'We are not looking for territorial
aggrandisement in China and-would
be content with proper indemnity.
I think China will see the necessity of submitting to our demand,
thus obviating war. Other powers
may fight, despite 'the deliverance
of foreigners. I can only speak for
the part America' will -play. I 'do
not believe that the statement of a

minister that he cannot leave the
capital "of a country without danger
to his life is equivalent to a declaration of war "from the country which
threatens him. I think the affair
will work itself out amicably. In
view of these facts, as I believe
them, an extra session of congress,
is unnecessary.'"

The railway charter mongers
have made theirappearanceat Victoria' again. They are after the
subsidy of $4000 per mile which
was offered in the lapsed charter
to the V. V. & E. Company for a
short line from Kootenay to' the
Coast. The former holders of the
concession were unable to do anything with it within the time limit,
others from making the attempt.
It remains to be seen whether the
legislature will revive the old policy
of permitting charter mongers to
absorb the bonuses which are voted
supposedly to defray the cost of
railway, construction. This policy
was denounced from one end of the
province to the other during the
recent political campaign, but it
may be one of the many issues that
are lost sight of by members when
their seats are won.
The Australian colonies have decided to send a contingent to China.
All told the force will not amount
to more than 650 officers and men,
but it is sent as an earnest of their
willingness to assist the empire in
any portion of the globe.

At the recent meeting of the  shareholders of the Queen Bess Proprietary Company the report of engineer Wpakes was read dealing  with the progress being made on  the long tunnel 'which is being  driven on the Queen Bess. In the  course of this report Mr. Wbakes  says: "From all 1 have seen of the  mine, I am more than ever convinced that both the vein arid ore  chutes are much better defined: and  continuous in the lower levels than  in the upper*. I regard this as an  indication that we may -expect  larger and more easily worked ore  bodies in the ground now being,  opened up in the main tunnel."  The machine drills were finally got  to work on,June 3rd. They would,  of course, push the drivage of the  main tunnel all they were able.  Mr. Scott hoped to be able to drive  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Street  J. M. LAY, Manager.  200 feet a month. In fact, during  the last month, when the drills had  been at work���it * was ��� only hand  drilling' before���180 feet'had been  driven. They were now in -900 feet,  and expected to get into the oi-e at  between 1200 feet and 1300 'feet.  They should make a connection at  the shaft at 150_0_feet, so that_they_  might expect in three or four  months > this - part- of the - development work completed, and opening  up a vast body of ore. Of course,  from the main shaft they should  send out intermediate levels to open  up the ore,~but the main part of the  development work would then be  done."  r, - Experience of a Pioneer.  Henry Cody, a pioneer of Kootenay is in town. He came to . the  country in 1883 and located several  of the "well known properties at  Ainsworth. It was at Ainsworth  in the early days Mr.' Cody bad an  experience which 'few -men ever  lived to tell. He had .descended to  the-bottom of the shaft in a claim  he was working to fire seven shots.  Just as he had fired the last fuse  his candle went out, and he remained to relight it. A few  seconds later the first shot went  off, and then the other six in rapid  succession. Mr. Cody remained at  the bottom of.-/the shaft till the  fusillade was over, and then as->  cended to the-surface -considerably  battered, but still in the ring. .  New Officers Arrive.  Adjutant and Mrs. McGill of the  Salvation army, arrived last night  from the Coast, en route from Skagway, Alaska. They were met at  the depot'by the band and mem-,  bers of the local corps, and escorted  to the barracks, where a warm  welcome was extended to them.  They will take charge of the corps  in this city. Adjutant McGill has  been engaged in army work for  thirteen  years in the Northwest  and Manitoba previous to going to  Alaska. Mrs. McGill, who was  formerly captain <Aikenhead, has  been stationed at various points on  the Coast, including -Victoria arid  Nanaimo. .  A Heavy Storm.

Ifc offered two guineas reward  for the capture of ex-president  Kruger of the defunct Transvaal  republic, and described Oom Paul in  facetious expressions.  The officials of the Baptist church  have received word from Rev. H.H.  Hall of Portage la Prairie declining  the invitation to Nelson.  A couple ot campers coming into  the city yesterday were alarmed by  shrieks from several ladies on the  shore who cried that a man was  drowning. The campers paddled  toward the object in the water to  find that ifc was Harry Parks' black  dog swimming home from the city.  James- A. Macdonald of Cane &  Macdonald, architects, has received  his commission as government  architect; for the post office buildings to be erected at Nelson. The  communication stated that the  plans were not completed yet and  that they would be forwarded on  completion. ���  A Nelson company have commenced operations on the. Leviathan property on Campbell creek,  opposite Kaslo. The "work 'is in  charge of Matthew Gutman.  Tracklaying at the Procter end of  the Balfour extension is suspended  owing to a difficulty with "the  laborers employed on the work.  These consider the work worth  more than the $1.75 per day paid  by the Canadian Pacific railway,  and of the 70 men who started on  Saturday last only about a dozen  remained at. work. The balance  came into Nelson and most of them  cashed their checks yesterday.  E. P. Burns, who built the Ten  Mile Point section of the Balfour  extension, is moving his outfit today. He has secured some work on  the O." R. & N. near Tacoma, Washington.  ���: Dr. LaBau is, establishing, a camp  about four, and one-half miles up  the" north shore of the lake. R. H.  .Williams and wife and C. Matthews  and wife will be among the party.  The launch Donna will ply to and  from the camp daily. '  Theright of way for the Molly  Gibson tramway has been cleared  and the work of erecting the line  will be commenced the first of next  week. A party of carpenters will  go up in a day or two to build the  stations. The line will be 8,000 feet  long from the mine to the road and  is of the Lanark> pattern. The  company's intention is to build a  concentrator eventually and the  tramway is being put in with a,  view to. this - contingency. The  Molly Gibson will recommence shipping six weeks hence.   . -  Work is being pushed on the addition to H. Byers & Co's. warehouse on the water front.  The steamer Denver is being over-  haule"d_at"the"CrPrR7 shipyard;     =  The fishing season is now in full  swing, several large catches having  been reported recently.  The organization of the Nelson  Mining Company, recently incorporated under the provincial act,  has been completed, officers being  elected as follows: George W.  Taylor, president; Robert Robertson, vice-president; Robert Mac-  Gregor, " secretary-treasurer; J.  Laing Stocks, managing-director;  S. S. Taylor, Q. C, solicitor. The  company has several prospects  in sight.  The city authorities are in somewhat of a quandary as to the disposition of the Twombly lad who is  alleged to have been deserted by his  parents.. There is apparently   no  provision for placing the boy in a  reformatory and an effort is to be  made to locate the father, who is  now said to be in the Atlin country.  A mechanical roaster is to be added to the plant of the Hall Mines  smelter at once.   The apparatus is  costly, but expedites the process of  smelting and decreases the cost of  reduction.    The company had intended, erecting   the   roaster last  spring   and   the   excavations  had  been made, the shut-down intervened and the operations were suspended.     J. J. Campbell, commercial  manager, informed The Tribune yesterday that he had been  authorized to proceed at once with  the   roaster,   and    that    building  would-be started   without delay.  With regard to the date of blowing  in Mr. Campbell remarked that it j  was impossible to state definitely  when this would take place. The  calciners were at work and and the  smelter must have a reserve of ore  before blowing in.  The local quoiters have decided  that after the tournament now  under way is concluded the members of the club: will be formed into  sides to play for a:-banquet to be  provided by the losers. The tournament will be continued- tonight,  weather permitting.  William R. Albi- charged with  attempted murder, was released  from the provincial jail last night  on bail. The bonds were, fixed at  $10,000, and sureties were furnished  by James V. Welch, the railroad  contractor, .who is a counsin  of fche defendant, and other part-  ties. N. E.Nuzum, barrister of  Spokane, was in the city last night  and arranged for Albi's liberation.  H. D.
