A representative of tho syndicate, Thomas  Kennedy, is now in the city securing information, and at last night's  council meeting a communication  was placed before the aldermen  regarding the matter.  The company proposes to  erect a brick factory with a  capacity of four setts of  machines. " Drying sheds and  othor necessary buildings will be  erected, tho whole requiring a clear  aero of ground. On the start two  setts of "machines will be operated,  this plant to be increased as business demands. The staJF on "opening will be 25 operatives.  The company will use Australian  wool for the manufacture of blankets, and woollen goods of various  descriptions. By establishing a  factory in the wesfc the syndicate  save freight from the coast east on  raw material and the charges west  on the manufactured articles, a  very material saving.  Mr. Kennedy has been in Medicine  Hat and Calgary aud both towns  haA*e offered substantial inducements to the syndicate to locate  their works there. lie is very  favorably impressed with Nelson's  advantages'however, aud this is the  principal point which tho syndicate  has in view. John' A. Turner,  government agent, lias been consulted and has promised to afford  the company every possible assistance in securing a site and other  facilities on government grounds.  The city council expressed itself  as anxious .to secure -the industry  for Nelson aud the matter was  referred to a special committee  consisting of aldermen Irvine, Hall  and Morrison with instructions to  go into the, question at further  length.  Flff tf JU LEAVE THE RING  When Horton Law Expires.  New York, August 27.���After  an ineffectual attempt on the part  of Bob Fitzsimruons to get on a  match for the heavyweight championship with James Jeffries to  take place before the Horton law  expires at midnight next Friday,  Robert Fitzsiinmons said tonight:  "I am through. I will retire from  the ring and will not claim the  ('championship from Jeffries.   I am  ,   ready and *on   edge to meet him  ���' next Friday night, as his manager  suggested ten days ago, but,as he  claims that he is in no condition to  fight on that night, I am through  __withhimiand^the^i'ing.^Henceforth^  there will be one less in the heavyweight division for I will go out  with the Horton law."       .- .7  Fitzsimmons, with his manager,  Percy Williams of Bergen Beach,  met William A. Brady, representing Jeffries, at a newspaper office  on Park Row this afternoon. Last  Saturday Fitzsimmons deposited  $2500 to bind a match between himself and Jeffries next Friday night  .and Brady sent word that he would  SV meet Fit/.simmons to arrange for a  ^battle'between his man Jeffries and  the ex-heavyweight champion.  Fitzsiminons said that he was ready  arid willing to meet Jeffries on  Friday night before the Twentieth  Century Club under any conditions  as to the division of the purse or  gate receipts which would suit  Brady. He said he would be satisfied with the winner taking all or  splitting the purse in half, or giving  (55 per cent to the winner, or 05 per  cent to the loser, or in fact, auy  terms possible so that he could meet  /jthe present champion  before the  /expiration of the Horton law.  Brady said that Jeffries was in no  condition, as he had quit training  several days ago. He said it would  be unfair for Fitzsimmons to force  a   matsh   with   a   man who   was  . physically unfit for such a contest.  Fitzeimmons replied that Jeffries  had plenty of time to get into condition, and said that although he  had gone through two very severe  battles during the last two weeks,  he was on edge now and ready to  regain the championship. Brady  was obdurate and said it was impossible for a fight to take place  between the men on the date mentioned, but that he would put up a  forfeit at once to bind a match between' the two, the fight to take  place ' within three months from  September 1st. and a side bet of  $10,P00. Fitzsimmons would not  listen to this proposition, and said  it was only made for advertising  purposes. When he saw that Brady  would not agree to the proposition  to light this week, Fitzsimmons  then made the statement that he  was through with'the fighting game  and would retire from the ring.  WORK ON THE MOLLY GIBSON  To Be Vigorously Prosecuted.  Active operations are again -being commenced at the Molly Gibson  mine under the direction of superintendent Norman Carmichael. The  first two cars of tramway outfit  were shipped from Lanark on the  main line yesterday and the remaining car load will be shipped in  a day or two.  At the present time twenty men  are employed on the property.  Most of these are tramway men  and the balance are miners working  ou a new tunnel which has been  planned to crosscut the vein at the  500-foot level. Tliis will make the  fif tli tunnel in the mine.  The ti'amway is to be completed  by October 15th, and the property  will then commence regular shipments. The management figure on  shipping 500 ..tons per month,- and  to accomplish this will have about  seventy-five men at work steadily.  A mill site has been cleared at  the mine and application made for  a grant. The company will build  a mill next spring and this will  materially increase the output. At  the present time the "dumps contain 150 tons of shipping ore in  sacks and 3000 tons of concentrating ore. If the shipment of 500  tons of ore per month is maintained  the company will have 20,000 tons  of concentrating ore ready , for  treatment when their mill is  erected.  The wagon road to the Molly  Gibson is in splendid, condition and  the .teams have been making round  trips daily for some time.  Jeffries Not in Trim... .  New York, August 27.���Fitzsimmons and W. A. Brady, manager for Jeffries, met this afternoon  to try to arrange a match between  the,two men. Fitzsimmons said he  was in good condition and wishes  to fight next Friday night. Brady  replied that Jeffries was not in  trim for a fight aud could not prepare himself in the few days intervening. The men separated without coming to any agreement except that there should be no fight  on August 31st.  BRITISH CASUALTIES  FEW  Germans Lodge a Complaint.   London, August 27���During geiir  eral Buller's recent attack, according to the Daily Mail's correspondent at Lorenzo Marques, the Boers  lost heavily. Half the gunners of  the Bethlehem commando were  killed, as well as its commando commandant, von Dal wig, a cousin of  Herr Krupp." ^  A council of war of the Boers at  Machadodorp, says the correspondent, decided against the advice of  commandant-general Botha to return to the original plan of retiring  on Lydenburg.  Former president Steyn and commandant. Delarey are reported to  have had an interview with Mr.  Kruger last Saturday at Water-  valonder.  London, August 27.��� Wiring  from Belfast today, lord Roberts  says: "Our casualties yesterday  (Sunday) were wonderfully few  considering the heavy firing and  the number of hours we were engaged. Buller estimates his as two  killed and twenty-four wounded.  His troops had to bivouac where  they stopped after darkness fell,  and accurate returns are yet impossible. The casualties of the  force operating north of Belfast  were three killed and thirty-four  wounded."  Berlin, August 28.���A deputation of German subjects residing in  the Transvaal has arrived here to  lodge a complaint with the German  foreign office regarding alleged  cruelty of treatment at Johannesburg. They assert that 400 German  subjects of both sexes were arrested  there and sent to a seaport, from  which point they were shipped to  Flushing, where the British landed  them penniless.  MEETING OF CITY COUNCIL  Routine Business Transacted.  The business transacted at last  night's council meeting was largely  of a routine nature. The aldermen  viewed the test of the new fire-  fighting apparatus before the session opened, and were apparently  pleased with the results achieved.  J. P. Bliss, city electrician, reported that in a number of cases  gas pipes had been placed in buildings close to the wires conducting  the current for electric lights, and  pipes frequently came in contact.  Only the insulation on the wires  saved the building from fires, and  the situation certainly called for  prompt action.  Aldermen Arthur and .Morrison  moved'that all the plumbers and  the gas company be notified not to  place pipes in buildings at anything  less than a safe distance from  electric wires. The council can  ��� regulate this matter under the common law and a by-law will be introduced dealing directly with the  question.  J7P. Russell offered to place an  arc lamp at the corner of Kootenay  and Baker streets, opposite the  Oddfellows' hall if the city would  supply the electrical current. The  matter was referred to the board of  works.  The matter of collecting the city  road tax was gone into and F. R.  C. Beer received the appointment  of collector with instructions to  enforce the collections.  Joe Williams, who narrowly  escaped death when the electric  light power dam broke, made a  claim for $125, one half of the loss  he sustained. The letter was filed.  G. A. Stewart, Potts drew the attention of the council to the danger  of leaving excavations made by city  employees unguarded at night by'  lights, stating that he had witnessed an accident which might  have resulted*.: seriously. As the  new streets and walks bylaw covers  this point the letter was filed.- .  " Minor matters of. detail in connection with the city ' ..workmen  were gone into, among other-points -  the wages of R. Lilliei engineer of  the road roller, being placed at $4  per diem.  The members present were alderman Irvine, chairman Arthur, Hall  and Marrison.  BOXERS GUTTING THE WIRES  Between Tien-Tsin and Pekin.  Washington, August 27.���After  several days' intermission in Chinese advices the government today  received two dispatches which presumably bring its advices up to the  most recent date. There are indications that the principal delays in  the lines of communication are encountered between Tien-Tsin and  Pekin, a fact explainable by the  newspaper advices that small bands  of Boxers are opera^gj*-n_thjeJine_  T5f "Tcommunication of the Pekin  campaign force.  Just such interference with the  work of the signal corps men was  experienced by the United States  forces in the Philippines and by  lord Roberts' troops in tbe Transvaal campaign. The fact that  more than a week was covered by  the last interruption gives rise to  tbe belief here that these attacks  upon the lines of communication  by Boxers are more formidable than  was supposed to be possible after  the heavy losses inflicted upon them  by the international force in its  advance.  The important dispatch of the  day was the one from minister  Conger relative to the military  situation in Pekin. Unfortunately  it lacked a date, the minister presumably not having yet received  the department's instructions to include the date in the body of his  dispatches. The state department  undertook to correct this sei ious  omission, but finally concluding  from internal evidences that Conger's message was certainly later  than any" official report emanating  from the Chinese capital, the message was allowed publicity for what  it was w��rth.  Mr. Conger's reference to the arrival of 2000 fresh German troops  caused some surprise, no one apparently having closely watched  the movements of the German contingent which is now arriving with  fairly regular frequency in China,  and which consequently may be  expected soon to equal in numerical strength the military contingents of any of the European  nations there represented.  A  significant statement in Mr.  Conger's dispatch is that respecting  the expected appearance in Pekin  of   some of   the members  of the  tsung li yamen.     A natural construction to be giv6n to this statement is that these ministers wish to  undertake to represent the Chinese  government   formally in   negotiations with the powers, it having  been found impossible up to this  moment, according to Mr. Conger's  statement, to meet any representative of the Chinese in Pekin  who  was competent to open negotiations.  With some responsible person or  persons   to deal with,- it may bo  possible for the .-United States to  come   to   a" settlement   with   the  Chinese goveriiinent.    They could  not withdraw their troops without  arranging for an' indemnity for the  heavy cost they: have been put to;  therefore the intelligence would be  welcome, as conveying a hope that  in the persons of these members of  the tsung li yamen there may be  found some authorized representaT  tive   of  the..Chinese   government  competent to make engagements on  these points.     *���?'  Another event of the day was  the order dispatching the Castine  from Shang-Haiito Amoy a distance  of about 400 miles. The little gunboat should make the run in about  two days, under favorable conditions. Her force is small but sufficient to serve the moral purpose!  It appears thatjshe is ordered to  Amoy, as much'for as for  any other purpose. ' The consul at  Amoy agreeing with the representations of the business interests, ifc  was decided to be proper to send a  gunboat to Amoy, not because of  any particular, apprehension as to  Japan's aspiration, but to prevent  rioting-at this dangerous point.  The first direct word from general Chaffee since August 18th came  today in the, form of a, cablegram,  dated at Taku 'reporting the action  of the sixth cavalry with the enemy  near Tien-Tsin on the 19th. This  cable adds nothing to the information in the possession of the depart-,  ment, as ifc is simply general Chaff-  .ee's,belated-report of an engagement, previously > reported * by - a'd-  :miral Remey'"in' a'*cable dated'Takii',  August 20th7"'in' which he said:  "Morning 19th, Sixth Cavalry and  about 400' English and Japanese  dispersed about 1000 Boxers outside  of Tien-Tsin. About 100 Chinese  were killed. Five Americans were  wounded."  MINING NEWS FROM SLOGAN  ��� Storm in Missouri.  Sedalia, Missouri, August 27���A  storm bordering closely on a tornado struck this city this afternoon.  Three   brick   buildings    on    Main  street were blown down, Caswood's  opera  house    was   unroofed   and  dozens of   smaller   building   were  damaged.     Thousands    of    shade  trees were broken aud torn up by  the roots.     Street car traffic was  suspended    and   telegraphic   and  telephone communication  was  interrupted.   There was   a   terrible  fall of rain, and water, in many of  ______3eJ*_s,iran=up^to=tlxe^doorsteps=  of the residences.   No loss of life is  reported.  Another Grass Boots Payer.  Kaslo, August 27���[Special to  The Tribune].���Another Slocan  grass roots payer is coming to the  front. J. A. Whittier, who came  down from Sandon yesterday, reports that W. W. Warner, who has  taken a contract on the Mountain  Consolidated, has already sent a  carload of ore to the Kaslo ore  sampler, although he has only been  working the property a month.  " Work has been resumed on the  R. E. Lee near Sandon, and William Innes has exposed a nice showing of ore.  S. Norman, of Spokane, paid another visit to the St. Keverne last  week, and evidently has changed  his plans, for the property was  shut down after a short spell of  work upon it.  The Silver Bell, near McGuigan,  is once more at work. Manager  Leete returned from Spokane last  week and put four men to work.  A quick shipper is the Mascot,  which the Ruth company bought a  short time since from Mike Kerlin  after he made the sensational find  thereon. Clean ore has already  been sacked.  The Minnesota concentrator is  almost finished and the tram is now  beiug rapidly constructed.- The  cable is 16,000 feet long.  After shipping twelve tons of ore  last week from the Omega, near  Sandon, Beatty and Dockstader of  Cody have thrown up their lease.  M. Gintzberger has returned to  the Slocan, briuging the news that  work on the Ajax fraction is to be  pushed vigorously throughout the  winter.  ��� From Slocan City comes the report that J. Frank Collom has  bonded the Speculator group on  Springer creek, adjoining the  :ArIington.' The bond is for one  year at $50,000.  ', Four feet of solid galena has been  'struck'-'n one of the old stopes of  the; T-._. "Friends." ' P. McVicars is  operating the property.  .C. D.

There  was a small sized stampede to that  neighborhood last week.  repealed, but got in an amendment,  making it apply to all tax payers  wilfully making false statements of  the value of their property. On  the same bill Curtis protested  against the tax on mineral output  which is two per cent on all outputs of mineral over $5000, instead  of one per cent as formerly. He  strongly pressed the harm it w;ould  cause in preventing development.  Finance minister Turner, in replying, stated that the tax on such  properties was higher in Washington, where taxes were levied on the  real estate, and the output was  taxed as personal property. He  claimed that if the Le Roi were in  Washington it would have paid  $30,000 bo date as against $10,000  in British Columbia. The bill to  tax coal and coke passed on -its  third reading, and the house was  still in session at a late hour.  Jones Got. the Decisions  Rochester. August 27.���"Kid"  Goulette of Rochester was defeated  before the Falls Field Athletic Club  here tonight by Arthur Jones of  Washington. In the fourth round  during a mixup Goulette badly  wrenched his right ankle and was  forced to quit. Referee McCarthy  gave the decision to Jones.  OUR FIREMEN TO COMPETE   " o  At the Spokane Tournament.  The Nelson fire department will  compete in the hose reel and lire-  men's races held in Spokane during  the annual convention of fire chiefs,  which takes place while the fruit  fair is in progress. The Spokane  firemen were particularly anxious  to have Nelson enter the events,  the local team being recognized as  the fastest outfit in the province  this season, and therefore best  qualified to meet the crack American teams which will be present at  the tournament. The members  of the team are enthusiastic over the prospect  of the trip and will commence  practice at once.. If they succeed  in repeating their Dominion Day  performance when all previous  provincial records wero lowered,  the American teams will have a  difficult problem to solve.  Chief Thompson had a telephone  conversation with the chief of the  Spokane brigade yesterday and the  firemen are to meet and arrange  for practices, etc.  SESSION  ALMOST  CLOSED  Legislators Working Hard.  Victoria,   August   27.���[Special  to the Tribune.]���This  is likely to  be the last business night of the  session of the legislature, for, with  the intention of polishing off the  remaining bills and resolutions, the  house sat until seven iu the evening  and assembled again at ten, with  the intention of sitting all the night  mnd"windiii^g"iTi>7=^PrOfOg^tion will  no doubt be fixed for Thursday.  . The miners in the Kootenays are  '. greatly against the appointment of  a commission to look into the working of the  Mineral Act, for  they  fear it to be a move on the part of  companies to   interfere   with   the  eight-hour   law.     Consequently   a  shoal of petitions against the appointment of a   commission were  presented today by Green of Slocan  riding and Houston of Nelson.  With the intention of simplifying  tho work of tho house and in committees, Joe Martin today moved  that a model railway bill, which he  presented, be adopted. This bill  contains the general clauses contained in railway bills, and should  any special poAvers be wished by  the promoters, the special section  can be printed in brackets to call  attention to them. After some  small opposition the bill was  passed.  Bn the third reading of the tramway act amendment, Joe Martin  moved that the section prohibiting  tramways from running within half  a mile of the United States boundary should be struck out and a  clause substituted forbidding the  paralleling of the Nakusp & Slocan  and the Kaslo & Slocan railways.  This was voted down and the third  reading was carried.  When the assessment bill came  up for a third reading, Curtis of  Rossland objected to the provision  that should mine owners wilfully  misstate the quantity and value of  their output the tax should be  doubled as a penalty. Curtis held  that as this applied to mines it  should apply to all classes of taxation.   He failed to get the section  COTTONWOOD CREEK CLAIMS  Showing Up Well.   ���  The district drained by the east  fork of Cottonwood creek has long  been known to contain mineral* of  considerable richness and claims  have been staked there since as long  as ten years ago. On none of- the  many claims located has enough  work ever been done to prove the  properties beyond a doubt, and but  little is heard of the district.  On Sunday James Hickey came  in from the east fork ��� with specimens aud information which apparently indicate that he **��� has  claims of much more than ordinary  merit. With Robert Caldwell he is  joint owner of the Black Bird and  Glad Hand claims just east of the  Nelson & Fort Sheppard track; the  Black Bird, in fact, extends across  the track and down into the gulch  of the main creek.  The Glad Hand was -located two  years ago and since then .considerable work has been-done-on it.* A  20-foot ��� tunnel", was,-, driven^ from  which the owners are now* sinking  and have reached a depth- of 15  feet. The paystreak on the surface was six inches wide and specimens of galena .taken from it assayed $40 in gold, silver and lead.  At the bottom of the shaft the  paystreak has widened to three  feet and while no assay has been  made recently, the appearance of  the ore would seem to indicate a  substantial increase iu richness.  The owners of the property are  confident they have a first-class  proposition and will proceed with  development.  HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL TEST  Of Chemical Apparatus.  The test of the new chemical ap-  ^paratus-last^night^was^quite^suc-  cessful, the fact being demonstrated  that a blaze confined to a small  space can be extinguished by the  chemicals, no matter how fiercely  the fire maybe raging. Where the  fire has extended over any considerable area the water will be necessary because of the limited capacity  of the cyclinder in which the chemical solution is generated.  A rough building six feet by  ten was erected in front of the fire  hall and filled with loose boards.  The whole was saturated with coal  oil, tar and other combustibles. At  7.45 chief Thompson touched a  match to the structure and in a  moment it was a mass of flames.  The combination wagon was run  to the door of the fire hall and the  chemical cylinder turned over.  The stream was directed into the  center of the blaze and its effect  was immediately . perceptible.  Wherever the solution touched  burning wood the flames died out  immediately. Before the contents  of the cylinder were exhausted the  fire was practically extinguished  and a couple of buckets of water  would have stamped it out completely.  Tho blaze was allowed to gain  head a second time while an experiment was made to determine how  much time would be required to  recharge the chemical apparatus  should the original charge fail to  put out a fire. This was accomplished in three minutes the process  consisting of placing 22 pounds of  soda, 50 gallons of water from a  hose and the requisite amount of  sulphuric acid, an extra drum of  which is carried on the wagon. The  fire was again put out in short  order.  wniym  e-��  scheme.v^l  PLANS FOR NEW UNION DEPOT  Arrived Yesterday Morning.    " .:.'*  The improvements at the C. P.

'"'   ��� ���  London, August 28, 4 a. m.--The ��� "^  allies are resuming aggressive operations and have taken  the district1  west   of Pekiu.     This   statement,  based   on   Chinese    authority, .is ^  cabled from Shang-Hai.   From the [ >.'  same places comes the further state- V*V  ment   that  Li   Hung   Chang   has  wired   the    empress   dowager   at  Hsian Fu requesting the arrest of  prince Tuan and the disarmament  of Boxers in order to give him an  opening for negotiations with the  powers.  The illuminations projected at  Shang-Hai in celebration of the re-  lief ofJPekin-have_bee__abandoned-  lest they should cause a native outbreak. "Evidence has been received here," says the Shang-Hai  correspondent of the Standard,  "going to show that general Yung  Lu was the real author of the anti-  foreign outbreak, the empress dowager prince Tuan and the others  all having been persuaded by him  to take an extreme attitude, while  he stood aside and awaited developments."  American refugee missionaries in  Amoy, according to the Hong Kong  correspondent of the Daily Mail,  are anxious to return to the interior, but fche United States consul has forbidden them to do so and  urges them to go to the Philippines  or return to America.  Shang-Hai advices to the Daily  News says that consular opinion  there looks upon the Japanese  action in 'landing troops at Amoy,  despite the protests of consuls, as  similar to that of Russia at New  Chwang, the whole indicating a  tendency to the partition of the  empire.  Russian journals agree, says the  Moscow correspondent of the Standard, that it is impossible to. deal  wifch China in the spirit of revenge  as suggested by emperor William.  They believe that measures less  drastic can better accomplish the  ends of Russia in Manchuria. The  question would be satisfactorily  settled to Russian minds by the  seizure of the northern provinces.  >;'-5*1  Bubonic Plague In Glasgow.

Its chief concern will be street railway companies,   electric   and gas  lighting companies, and telephone  companies, which so far have generally succeeded through the courts  in avoiding payment of their equitable proportion of taxes.  The Royal Templar organizations  of Canada and the United States  no longer go hand in hand. The  United States organization has  changed���its���constitution ahd^its  members are no longer pledged to  abstain from the use of liquors.  The abstinence pledge was found  to be a clog upon the insurance  branch of the organization and it  was therefore abolished. The feeling against the change is very  strong in some of the New York  lodges and several of them 'are expected to come into the Canadian  organization, which still holds with  the cold water creed.  The Miner of Nelson is opposed  to the system of performing  public works by day's labor. It  favors the contract system, and in  support of it cites the statement of  an alderman of Winnipeg to the  effect that sewer work performed  in that city by day's labor cost 20  per cent more than it would have  cost under the conti-act system.  The Miner suggests that this proves  the contract system to be the only  sensible system. It proves nothing  of the kind. It may prove that the  labor upon the work in question  was not judiciously handled, but  that is all. What the Miner should  proye is that tho corporation cannot  secure as capable foremen for such  work as private contractors secure;  that the corporation's dollar has  not the same purchasing power as  the dollar of the private contractor.  So far as Nelson's past experience  goes it has shown ,that under the  day's labor system the cost of  public works has not increased OA-er  that of the contract system, and  the corporation had the advantage  of having the work immediately  under its control from the commencement to the finish; a very  desirable condition which prevents  scamping. To fairly contrast the  two systems it must be assumed  that in each case the work is being  directed by a competent man, and  under such conditions the comparison is generally in favor of the  day's labor system.

THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Saving's Bank Branch  ���~ "CURRENT'R'ATE'OF'INTEREST'PAIDr-  MAHOMETANS   OF  CHINA.  If there is truth ia the report that  comes from China to the effect that  the Mahometans are resisting the  Boxers, the  Christian  forces have  ���received allies worth having, says  the    New    York    Tribune.     The  Mahometans in China number in all  probability 25,000 to 30,000.   These  figures are not, of course, exact, but  tliey aro doubtless well within the  truth.    The provinces of the north  !* and west are full of the followers..  | of the prophet.    In Sze-Chuen thoy  form nearly one-third of the population,   and in  Pekin itself there  j are more than 10,000 of them. Mos-  v- ques are to be found all over the  U empire;   Canton has as many  as  || four, although the city is not in a  j| Mahometan district.  i    ��� Tradition has it that Mahomet's  uncle introduced the religion, and  that   his   name   was Wos Kassin.  Mahometans give as evidence of the  truth of this story the tomb of the  missionary, which is just outside of  Canton.     However   the faith was  introduced, it must have been very  nearly at the time of its foundation,   and   it   has flourished   ever  since.     Conversion has been slow  but there have been no setbacks,  and the  religion  has   never  been  persecuted   in   any   way.     It was  not in the nature of the Chinese to  seek to stamp out any faith that  may be preached in the empire. To  g the ordinary middle or lower class  Chinaman religion is a thing apart.  If certain men like to indulge in  speculation and philosophy he has  no objection   as long as they let  him alone to worship his ancestors  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  in peace. He would never have become incensed against Christianity  had there been less truth in the  proverb, "first the missionary, then  the consul." So Mahometism was  free to work as it chose. It offered  to the thinking Chinaman a reli-  =gionJbetteiuthan=.thati_n==which=he=  had been reared, and from such  men recruits were drawn. The  state religion has not been in the  least influenced by the teachings of  the Mahometans. Pork is the chief  meat of the people, and they will  eat it forever, while the cause of  total abstinence from wine is not  likely to draw supporters in a  country where drunkeness is practically unknown.  One concession has been made to  Chinese custom. In every mosque  is a tablet inscribed "May the emperor live forever." Those who  attend the mosque are supposed to  worship this tablet. As the doctrine of one God, who alone should  be worshipped, is openly proclaimed  by the Mahometans, they are driven  to the device of inscribing the  prophet's name on the reverse side,  as some palliation of the offense.  It is doubtful if the tablet is ever  really worshipped; it serves merely  as a convenient proof of loyalty to  the reigning house. The form of  worship used is that ordinarily in  use among Mahometans, but the  Koran is unintelligible to them, as  strict laws forbid its tianslation,  and, of course, few Chinamen ever  think of learning Arabic. Pilgrimages to Mecca, however, are not  unknown, and are of increasing  frequency.  More than once the government  and the Mahometans have been On  bad terms, but this has been for  political rather than for religious  reasons. The Mahometans became  so numerous in many towns that  they wished to take the government into their own hands, and in  this attempt have been opposed by  the imperial authorities.

In fact, the harmony existing between the government and the followers of Mahomet  would seem to suggest the thought  that Christians must have been  somewhat tactless to arouse such  general resentment against the religion of Christ.

Smith, containing $11, was  returned to the  owner by G. A.  Gilchrist.  Rev. Robert Frew sailed from  England on Saturday for Canada.  He will spend;a few days with  friends in Montreal before returning  to Nelson.  Jaeob Dover has on exhibition at  his store the medal presented by  Dr. Hall for competition at the  gun club's annual shoot. The trophy  is unusually handsome in design  and is unique inasmuch as it is the  first work of the kind ever turned  Ont in the province.  The C. P. R.- is somewhat hampered for power here owing to the  damage to locomotives 88 and 28 in  last week's accident.   No.  28 was  an   old mill and would probably <  have been superannuated within a,  few weeks in any event.   "With the  machinists  out  in the company's  shops,   however,   power   is   at a  premium, and any special rush of  business   here   would   necessitate  extraordinary  methods to handle  the freight with the power available.  The demand for rock on the  Baker street work has outrun the  capacity of the Victoria street:  quarry and a small gang of men  was started yesterday at the bluff  on the east side of Josephine street, I  below Silica.    The rock crushing]  outfit also put iu an extra shift last  uight and this will be continued  until the pressure is relieved.    ,  The road work on Baker street  has reached the stage where both  blocks under way require the final  coat of finely crushed stone, and as  the crusher has not been able to  keep ahead of the work, the street  gang is reduced to one spreader.  The city council has decided not to  break ground in the block between  Ward and Stanley streets until the  two blocks east ��are rolled and  finished.  The duty on the combination'  chemical and hose wagon purchased  by the city from a firm of Chicago  manufacturers amounted to $030.  R.W.Hanniugton and wife arrived  in the city from their wedding trip.  They will reside at the Iiotel Phair  until their residence on Carbonate  street is ready for occupation.  Sheriff Tuck held an auction sale  of goods under seizure to satisfy  judgments at his office yesterday.  The first lot was the interest of  Abbie H. Williams in the Bertha  mineral claim located west of Jackson creek near the Dardanelles  mine. This was purchased by  Henry Giegrich of Ainsworth for  $86, which about covered the  judgment. A promissory note drawn  by the Britannia Mining company  in favor of Philip McVicar for  $2500 was bought by Giegrich at  $040.  The Nelson and Trail junior ball  teams crossed bats at the recreation  grounds yesterday morning. A  lovely game ensued from which the  local team emerged winners by a  score of 19 runs to 11. The players  were: Nelson, G. McBeath c, H.  McLean p, H. W. Wallace lb, D.  Johns 2b, J. Bannermau 3b, W.  Stead ss, -V. Gallon rf, P. McArthur  cf, C. McBeath If; Trail, R. Shields  c, M.

Judge Spinks, judge of the county  court of Yale, presided at- a meeting of the county court here yesterday morning. The only case on-the  docket .was that of Morrison vs.  British American Gold Mining Company, in which the. plaintiff sought  to recover on a mechanic's lien several hundred dollars alleged to be  due him for work performed on  claims belonging to the defendant  company near Hall Siding. His  honor dismissed the suit, holding  that plaintiff had not proved agency  on the parttof the man who hired  him to do the work for which he  claimed coniijensation. The lien  against the claims is, therefore, dissolved. Elliott & Lennie appeared  for defendants and Galliher & Wilson for plaintiff.
