 DAILY EDITION   __Y MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  : --'r-v -_r''^^Sfi?__'  ������-���--* ;^^��iy?��*ffi*  ymm$l%.  ^My&s6  -   .A?  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:   SATURDAY MORNING SEPTEMBER 1  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  WASHINGTON ASKS EUROPE  For a Statement of Policy.  Washington, August 31. ��� The  Russian note relative to the withdrawal of Russia from China and  the United States' response thereto  ���were made publie today by the  state department after the cabinet  had fully considered the expediency  of so doing. It may be said to  illustrate a clover move by which  the United States government  again has resumed the lead in prescribing the policy of tho powers  respecting the Chinese troubles.  This was accomplished by tho state  ���department availing itself of the  Russian note to address to the  powors an inquiry as to their  policy, an answer to which scarcely  can be avoided.  Various meanings may be placed  upon   the statements of the  two  principals  to this  correspondence.  Thus, on the one hand, it may be  noted that while Russia announced  a purpose to withdraw her troops  from China, still, as to the occupying force at New-Chwang, a condition is attached that almost  negatives  the  proposition ��� as   to  that  point.     Respecting  the American  attitude it appears that while believing the best course to pursue is  to remain in Pekin, the government  is  still  willing to withdraw.    Perhaps this means that if there is to  be separate action by the lowers in  China, the United States proposes  to deal with the situation with a  free hand.     It may be noted, in  ���connection with the Amorican withdrawal   statement,    that   whereas  .Russia proposed to withdraw from  Cliina, the United States' offer is to  withdraw only from Pekin.    A significant fact in this connection is  that general Chaffee, who is well advised of the situation," having several days ago been directed to pre-  pare'for,jus"t such an emergency as  that precipitated by the Russian  actions, continues his  preparations  for wintering the American troops  in China.     Indeed, 'unless the men  are afloat- aud out of the Pei Ho  "wi_nn'the"nexFsi_*weelci, they are  .Sfc^ly to remain in China, perforce,  being ice-bound.  General Chaffee was further advised today; of the developments in  the situation, a compendious statement of the points in the Russo-  American con espondencc being  cabled to him for his guidance.  As bearing further on the prospects of the future, it may be  noted that the war department in  regard to this state that the government has not considered the question of evacuation of China. It  scarcely is expected that even with  the aid of the cables a complete accord can be reached upon this last  proposition immediately.  Up to the close of the official day  only two telegrams had been  received iu consequence of the last  note.    One was   from the British  Still a further consideration is the  Russian sympathies entertained by  the empress dowager, as against  the British sympathies held by the  emperor. Thus far, however, there  has been no questioning of the  credentials-on any personal ground  mentioned, although they are forcible in shaping tho action of the  several powers.  Although the exact whereabouts  of Li Hung Chang continues to be  iu doubt, it is the understanding of  diplomatic officials that he is now  in continuous communication with  the imperial household, and thus is  enabled   to   convey to   them the  prospect of a return to the Chinese  capital.    The   expected return of  prince Ching to Pekin is said to be  the result of w this communication  between Li Hung Chang and the  imperial   family   and   to   be   the  initial move of responsible authorities toward the capital.    There is  reason to believe also that earl Li'  is now in frequent telegraphic correspondence  with   European capitals, although Washington has not  received   a word from him  since  about August 21st, the date of his  last appeal for peace.   Some signi-  CONSERVATIVE CONVENTION  ficance is attached to this, as indicating that Li Hung Chang, failing to get from Washington an  acceptance of his overtures, turned  to Europe, aud more especially to  Russia.  It was stated today, as an additional reason for American  acceptance of Li Hung Chang, that  his confidential secretary and adviser is an American, Mr. Pethick,  formerly of the American consular  service at Tien-Tsin.  ~foreign office, through the American embassy, stating that lord Salis-  ��� bu*y(.was absent from London, and  merely promising consideration for  the note. The German response was  through Mr. Jackson, and was  equally inconclusive, indicating a  wish on the part of the German  government for time to consider  the propositions. The officials here  say that they" are satisfied that  Japan at least is fully in accord  with the United States' objects as  . set out in the note, and rather  expect an early answer from the  government of that country. France  has not been heard from on this  point, her last note alluding solely  to Li Hung Chang's status.  The full text of the French government's answer to Li Hung  Chang's proposals of August 10th  and 21st has just been received here.  It proved to be almost identical in  language with the reply of the  American government, which laid  down as preliminary to the peace  overtures that security in the  Chinese capital and responsible  government authority; be established.. It has developed in��� the  course of careful consideration  which officials have given to Li  Hung Chang's credentials that they  were issued by the empress dowager, and,not by emperor Kwang  Tsu. This may have an important  bearing on the subject, as it opens  up the authority of the empress  dowager since the coup d'etat of  September 9th, 1898, when she took  the reins of power from the hands  of the emperor. It involves also  the issues between the empress  dowager, who is anti-foreign, and  .the emperor, who  ia pro-foreign.  KETTLE RIVER BILL PASSED  Mining Commission to be Appointed.  Victoria, August 31.���[Special  to The Tribune].���Af ter'an all night  session the legislature completed its  business at six o'clock this morning,  and this afternoon the house was  prorogued by the lieutenant-governor. The closing ceremonies "were  not at all elaborate, and the., governor's speech merely reviewed the  work-of��� the-,session.;/ The--dawn  was just breaking when the Grand  Forks. & Kettle River bill was  reached, and the tired legislators  braced up for the fight that ended  in the bill being successfully passed  by a very narrow margin.  Garden of Vancouver moved the  second reading of the bill in a telling speech and was followed by  Smith Curtis, who pointed out at  some length the advantages of the  road, showing that the promoters  hoped to attract two million dollars'  worth of ore from Republic to the  Grand Forks smelter if the road  was built. The bill, as advocated,  has dropped the proposed extension  to Cascade in the hope that by so  doing the C. P. R. antagonism will  be removed. . There was a strong  light, however, and the second  reading carried _by only; 17 to 15.  In committee McPhillips tried to  get a provision inserted to prevent  the bill going into operation until  allowed by an order-in-council.  This was defeated by a vote of 16  to 15, the bill was reported to the  house, and finally went through its  third reading after five divisions  had been taken.  The opposition tried to kill the  bill allowing the Columbia & Western railway an extension of a  year in which to select the land  under their land grant. This was  left over from last session and was  carried by 27 to 7.  An important statement was  made by the "premier when the  Curtis resolution to affirm the  eight-hour law came up. The resolution was negatived by premier  Dunsmuir, who.said of the eight-  hour law: "It is not the intention  of the government to alter the  bill; it is now on the statute books  and is there to stay."  Almost the last proceeding of the  session was a protest from Phoenix  against the appointment by the  government of a mining commission. The commission, however,  will be appointed.. Owing to strenuous opposition from Vancouver  the attempt to center all the  sittings of the supreme court in  Victoria was dropped.  Wanted in Africa.  Ottawa, August 31.���Lord Roberts has asked the Dominion authorities to allow the Canadian contingents now in South Africa to  remain for two or three months  longer than the limit���October 15th.  The request will undoubtedly be  granted.  Passed Seventeen Eesolutions.  Vancouver, August 31.���[Special  to the Tribune.]���The Liberal-Conservative convention finished their  labors today after a two days  session. The following officers were  elected: R.

Expressing confidence in the  leadership of sir Charles Tupper.  of the Amur government, of the  announcement that the Chinese  had sent a messenger with a flag of  truce to general Rennenkampf.  This occurred on August 22nd, aud  on August 24th the Chinese declared that they would cease hostilities, and in no case would they  make a further attack. General  Rennenkampf replied that he had  no authority to negotiate aud  would push on to Tschichar. He  called on the Chinese to retire without offering any resistance.  BLACKSTOCK INTERVIEWED  To Develop Coal Trade.  Toronto, August 31.���On the return of Mr. Mackenzie and Mr.  Donald Mann to the city it is expected that arrangements will be  completed for the consolidation of  the Inverness & Richmond Railway,  in which they are largely interested,  -withtheBroadcove-Coal-Company.  The intention is to form a powerful  consolidation that will be an influential factor in developing the coal  export trade- of Nova Scotia. A  number of smaller concerns may be  included in the consolidation. R.  A. Demme of London, managing  director of the Broadcove Company,  will come to Toronto to complete  the transaction and the stock of the  company will probably be offered  in the English market.  Fatally Crushed.  Belleville, Ontario, August 31.  ���Tilley McCrudden, while return  ing to her home here from Toronto  on the early Grand Trunk train,  was fatally crushed between the  station platform and the tracks this  morning, dying a few hours afterwards. The young lady appears to  have been asleep when the train  arrived and did not awake until  the train had started again. In  attempting to alight from a moving  car she fell with the above result.  Guns From Louisburg.-  Toronto, August 31.���Two old  French guns which were recently  picked up in Louisburg harbor were  shipped to Toronto by the steamer  Arona which sailed last night for  Montreal. The purchase was made  on behalf of the Alumni Association of Toronto University. The  guns will be placed on the college  campus.      Would Cease Hostilities.  St. Petersburg, August 3L���  Telegrams received here today from  Blagovetchensk (the capital of  Amur) confirm the previous reports  from general Grodskoff, commander  RUSSO-AMERlCAN PROPOSAL  Under Discussion in Europe.  London, September 1.���4.10 a. ni.  ���In the absence} of further news  from China the - papers are again  filled with discussions of the-Russo-  American.-propos'Qls^ which, so far  as may begathered from the presentations af opinions in the various  European capitals*; are calculated to  subject the unity of the allies to an  exceedingly severe, and dangerous  test.       .        .   " 'I  In Germany,- -Especially, these  proposals are so diametrically  opposed to emperdf William's policy  that they have,produced something,  like consternation.,. As the Daily  News editorially -remarks: " Count  von Waldersee was' assuredly not  sent to assist iri "restoring the  empress dowager." , ���  It is recognized on' all sides that  Germany's decision is the pivot of  the mattei-. Emperor William intended, by dispatching count von  Waldersee, to have the master hand  in the Chinese settlement. Russia  has taken the wind'out ofthat,offi-  cer's sails, and is now-posing as the  friend and protector of China.    ' -  The morning'papers express the  greatest suspicion of the intentions  of Russia. . The Times editorially  fairly represents the opinion of all.  The Times says": "The advantages  of Russia's policy,are not manifest,  and it is Very .doubtful if it will recommend itself to,powers like England and Germany that have large  commercial interests in .the establishment of a stable and progressive  government to<rep_lco' theTreaetion-  ary clique which ��� has"' impeded all  progress and development in China  in recent years. Negotiations with  Li Hung Chang would be a.condoning of government crimes and the  throwing away of- all the advantages gained by the - occupation of  Pekin."  Much mischief may have already  been done by the hesitation to  enter the forbidden city. To withdraw from Pekin would be interpreted as proving not only that all  the allies were cowards. but that  they were .hopelessly divided. It  may be that some of- the powers  will withdraw; but that does not  imply that others are bound to leave  Pekin and acquiesce in the restoration of a government guilty of  gross international crime.  Vienna specials show that the  -Russo- American���proposals���have-  caused extreme annoyance there.  It is believed that Aus-  tro-Hungry will follow in Germany's steps, but it is recognized in both Berlin and Vienna  that the withdrawal of Russia and  the United States from Pekin  would leave the other powers little  option but to follow.  The Standard says : ". Diplomacy  sometimes makesstrange bedfellows.  It is curious to find the mighty  autocracy of the old world and the  great republic of the new gently  coaxing the other powers along the  paths of peace. Nothing could be  better than the spirit of these documents, and it is interesting to find  two such powers so anxious to  determine the controversy in such  an unselfish spirit."    '  The. Daily Mail says: "Russia  has forced the hand of the United  States against the better judgment  of the latter. At the same time  the United States government has  adduced such valid reasons why the  Russian policy is a bad one that it  will hardly be expected that other  powers will concur."  Satisfied With Investments.  T. G. Blaekstock of Toronto, who  was in the city for a few hours last  night with George Gooderham, also  of   Toronto, is one of   the many  capitalists whobelievemost strongly  in the future of the Kootenays as a  mining district.   The two   gentlemen are the heads of the Gooder-  ham-Blackstoek   syndicate,   which  practically owns   the War   Eagle  and Center Star mines at Rossland,  and   has 00 per cent, of the St.  Eugene stock.   They have visited  all the properties, and the result  of their inspection is  summed up  J by Mr. Blaekstock, who says: " We  are thoroughly satisfied with our  investments in the Kootenays.   The  result ha3j been even better than  Ave had anticipated."  Mr. Blaekstock returned a few  weeks ago from England and his  observations on the   condition of  affairs there from'the standpoint  of the mining promoter is of considerable interest.    " We have been  told that the money market is so  stringent that capital   could   not  be had for investment in Canada,"  he says, "but my opinion  is-that  while investors may be somewhat  more cautious and speculation less  rife than before the war commenced,  money can be had as  readily for a  good investment as at any other  period. The addition to the British  forces   in 'Africa   of    contingents  from Canada   has   done   much to  bring Canada to the attention of  the English public, and they are  beginning to realize that we have  something more than a snow bank  here.    While the public might have  been ignorant as to the condition  of affairs here, I was surprised to  find how familiar the mining brokers of London were  with British  Columbia.     They   were following  the elections here closely and asked  questions about the district .which  required an accurate knowledge of  the country to answer.   The two  per cent duty on', ore   was freely  criticized in London." '  ���   Iu concludingMr: Blaekstock expressed   the    belief   that   British  Columbiatwould get her share of  the English   capital   held for   investment and expressed the hope  that the legislature   would avoid  legislation which .would tend to discourage the "flow of capital in this  direction.  only considered temporary. Everything and everybody are well." The  word "everything" is interpreted  as referring to mission property,  which is still uninjured. Rev.  Joshua Kimber, associate secretary  of the Protestant Episcopal Missionary Society, today received a letter  from Miss Mary Gates, who has just  come to this country on a furlough.  Miss Gates thinks many months  must elapse before missionary work  can be resumed in the interior of  China.  Nelson Day at Spokane Fair.  Dr. E. D. Olmstead, ex-mayor of  Spokane, was in the city yesterday  in   the   interests   of  the Spokane  Industrial Exposition, of which he  is president.   The fruit fair opens  on October 2nd and closes on the  16 th.   The   management   promise  that the exhibition will be an improvement    in   every   respect   on"  former years, and are looking for  an attendance that will surpass all  previous records.    Dr. Olmstead is  arranging for a Nelson day at the  exhibition and a special train service for Nelsonites.   His idea is to  run an extra train of sleeping cars  out of Nelson in the evening, returning the next night after the exhibition closes. - This will enable citizens to see the fair "with the loss of  one day only, and will doubtless  attract an unusally ��� large contingent.      .       ���  '  ST.

"His Night Out."  A couple of hours of solid  fuu  were served to the excellent audience which witnessed the presentation of "His Night Out;" by the  Australian Comedy Company last  night. The bill was replete with  droll complications and humorous  situations which were done justice  to by the company with the result  that tho audience enjoyed itself  immensely. Tonight the company  plays " Sapho" again, and prices  have been reduced to 25, 50 and 75  cents for the occasion. In " Sapho"  the company appears to splendid  advantage, and gives an interpretation which delights all. The members of the company have genuine  ability and theatregoers should not  miss this last opportunity of  patronizing real talent.  News From Missionaries.  New York, August 31.���A cablegram was received today in answer  to one sent two days ago by the  board of foreign missions of thf; Reformed Church in America to Rev.  Phillip W. Pitcher of the American  mission. The answer follows:  "Disquieting rumors are afloat  about   the Japanese.    There is an  ment' work.' The ore is rich and  easily' handled. - The output has  been on the-increase steadily; .with  the exception of August, and the  officials figure on shipping. 3000  tons of concentrates in October,  which they will make a record  month. The ore is forwarded to  the American Smelter Company's  smelters, with the exception of a  portion shipped on instructions  from the smelter company, to South  America to be used iri the reduction of silver ores, the St. Eugene  concentrates having a remarkably-  high percentage of lead. t~  The company has a mill with a  of   400   tons   daily,  and  under ordinary circumstances this  is kept running constantly. During  August, however, the .drought  "affecteTTthe water supply so seriously that the mill was only operated to a little over half its capacity, 225 tons being the daily average. The flume, which has been  built to tap Sunday creek three  miles from the mine, will be completed by September 20th, and after  that time the water supply will be  more than enough for any contingency.  The St. Eugene people are developing other properties in the vicinity, several of which promise to bo-  come mines.   Glasgow Vessels Quarantined.  New York, August 31.���Dr. A.  H. Doty, health warden of the port  of New York, said today that hereafter all vessels bound from Glasgow to this port would be detained  at quarantine for a period of twelve  days from their embarkation.  "This length of time," said Dr.  Doty, "is the maximum period of  incubation. As there are only two  passenger lines plying between this  port and Glasgow the work will be  simplified. The disinfection will  depend largely upon the character  of the passengers. Most of them  merely go to Glasgow for the purpose of embarking. They hurry  through their journey and are little  exposed to the plague." An officer  of the Anchor line said today that  Dr. Doty's judgment would be  relied on implicitly.  NELSON'S CITIZEN SOLDIERS  Many on Active Service.  The Nelson rifle ��� company is now  in the midst of fall drill in.antici'-:  cipation of the annual inspection.  Militia  matters  are  locally  in a  somewhat unusual-condition. owi_��-  to circumstances which have [arisen-.  within the past nine months  last inspection the rifle  was fully up to strength and paseed H-!'  a creditable inspection.   Then the '��  First   Canadian   Contingent   was^Jfl  formed and six members were trans- "'^'  ferred   to the' active 'service rqlK     _-.,.  Later the composite Canadian regi-J>'$3M.  ment left, diid three others were -7^1  transferred.1 When the Strathcona ;Vi|j  Horse was raised two riflemen were^tstfl  detached from the company, and-'S^I  eight more left when the Canadian^ -Jw  garrison corps was organized.   Tlie^i^! I  Nelson company has the distinction^ 7?|j|  therefore, of having fully 50 per '\��^&l  cent of its rank and file on active' J^l  service, a proportion which is -noV^SI  equalled by any unit in the Cana-:>i^*J  dian militia. '*_">r-*0|  The distinction -'- " "       --"'--^^l  is highly prized! _  by the company,,, but in one paf--*,^,  tieular it may work a hardship, for7::'B$|  at inspection the numerical strength^;>��$|  of, the company, materially' affectsY^-^l  the marks awarded by the" inspect- iit-?M\  ing officer."   Because   of this. theY^jfJ  Nelson company may^be found nearSSjSf  the bottom of the list? in effective--".X4M  ness, despite the fact that half its.^fj  members are serving with the'colors "t��_&j  in Africa and on garrison duty at'^^��_  home, while other companies which7^/Ji|��  have furnished a very small  pro-;  ���>a*_$-_  ���VrKl  __?3*m  being^S  _?;���  portion of their strength will score  high because their ranks are full  and the men more or less thor-:  oughly trained.. , ^.'  Such a condition.of affairs would  be manifestly unfair, arid the attention of the district officer is  directed to the matter with t, T��_��, ^.^  to securing some consideration t_ot:,��i$  the fact that half the Nelson militia--, ^f^,  men are under arms abroad. ��� It," is*|p:|  thought the militia officials' willyfe|f  view the situation in this light. '^^^  ��� The standing of the Nelson com3^Jf|!  pany at. the approaching inspection.^^  is regarded as of more than  ordiri- - _$  ary importance in view of the general   impression   that a complete*  reorganization of the militia will'  take place after hostilities cease in'  South Africa.     One of the features  of any such reorganization could  hardly fail to be the placing of the  Rocky Mountain Rangers upon a  proper regimental basis,  and it is,  admitted   that   in   the   event of  captain Hodgins' return to Nelson  his distinguished services will give"  him- first    choice   for     the   posi-"  tion      of     commanding       officer.  With     the     officer   commanding  resident in Nelson the adjutancy of  the corps will naturally go to a  local officer and the auxiliary corps,  such as bands, stretcher sections,  stores, etc., would in the ordinary  course of events be raised at regi-  jnejLtaLhe_ad_quarters,_Al_of_whic__  would probably entail the erection  of. a drill hall in  the city by the  militia departments. '  The importance of maintaining  the local militia company in an efficient condition will be recognized,  and the officers hope to have the  co-operation of citizens generally in  their efforts. The company drills  each Thursday night, aud young  men who desire to enlist will be  afforded overy facility on application to the oflicers or sergeants.  No expense is attached to joining  the militia.   Andre's Buoy Found.

IF YOU WANT  Pure  Groceries  at Honest  Prices  The careless manner in -which  gas fitting is being carried on in the  business section of the city has  again forced itself upon the attention of the civic authorities, and  notices have been sent out to all  gas fitters calling tlieir attention to  the necessity of complying with  the requirements of the fire under-  - writers' regulations. Several. instances have been brought to light  where gas fittings are in contact  with the electric light wiring. This  is in itself highly dangerous, and  may lead to serious consequences  at any time. Now that attention  has been called to the matter it will  pay the merchants, who have had  their premises fitted up for gas, to  look oyer the fitting and see that  their fire insurance' is not jeopardized. A" bylaw to regulate gas  fitting will be introduced at the  TRY   THE  next sitting of the city council, but  the owners of premises already  fitted up should see" to it at once  that they are riot incurring unnecessary ^danger.  Joseph Martin denies the story  tha he will take the stump in Manitoba against the Laurier candidates.  He announces that he is once more  in the Liberal fold, and if he takes  the stump, at all it will be in the  government interest.  Tub Liberals of the province  evidently intend to put up a strong  fight in the approaching federal  elections, and the several factions  which have been at war with each  other have decided to bury the  hatchet. Thus ib comes that  Joseph Martin and J. C. McLagan  once more meet and confer with  senator Templeman and Hewitt  Bostock, and disappointed ambitions ^no more rankle in the hearts  of those who were not chosen.  The announcement that J. C. McLagan of the Vancouver World  may be a candidate in the Liberal  interest for Yale-Cariboo has not  been well received. The chief objection to McLagan is the circumstance that he is a non resident. A  non resident could not win on either  ticket in the approaching contest.  Boundary Smelters.  The Boundai'y country will be  well supplied with smelter facilities  within the next year or so. A  Nelson wholesaler who returned  from a tour of the district yesterday states that during the week he  met a party of directors of the  B. 0. Mining Company operating in  Summit camp prospecting the  ground between Eholt and Greenwood with a view to locating0 a  smelter site, and tliey selected a  site between the points mentioned  where water power is abundant and  other requisites excellent. The  Knob Hill and Ironsides properties  are shipping ten cars of ore daily  to the Granby smelter and state  that when their ore bins and dumps,  at present full to repletion, are  emptied, a force of 4.00 men will be  put on at the mines.  Completing Tramway Apparatus.  At B. C. Riblet's machine shop on  Front street the staff is engaged in  completing the tramway apparatus  which will connect the Ivanhoe  mine, operated by the Minnesota  Silver Mines of Sandon, with the  concentrator recently erected. The  last shipment was the big wire  cable on which the buckets swing,  the bull wheel and other parts  being already on the ground. The  ore buckets, forty in all, with a  capacity of half a ton each, are  neatly stacked at the shop awaiting  their final coat of paint. When  these are. delivered the tramway  will be complete.

Vancouver World. - -.  A community that still lives in  the Stone Age, knowing no metals,  ancl until a few months ago never  having seen a white man, is among  the latest discoveries.  On a lonely island in Hudson's  Bay, a piece of laud nearly as big  as the state of Maine, these ijeople  ���a tribe of Eskimo���have lived  without intercourse with auy other  human beings for centuries. Their  houses are built of tho skulls of  whales, being made by putting together the great jaws of right  whales which are covered with  skins. Their lamps are an open  dish of whale or seal oil, with a  wick or dry' moss soaked in fat.  The making of these lamps is not  an easy matter. Southampton Island, the home of the tribe, possesses no soapstone, the material  used by other Eskimos for pots and  kettles and lamps, consequently the  to people have to make such receptacles in rectangular shapes out of  slabs of limestone glued together  with a mixture of grease and deer's  blood.  A strait about 30 miles broad  separates Southampton Island from  the western shore of Hudson's Bay,  where there is a colony of Esqui-  mos, and once in a very long while  it freezes clear across. This happened, it is said, 75 years ago, and  then a few hunters came over from  the island to the mainland, where  they were much surprised to  counter other human beings.  The tribe consists of about  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Confiscation in Morocco.  It is a custom in Morocco that all  the property of an official reverts  at death to the crown. The logic  which leads to' such a result is  simple for the government argues  that all fortunes thus accumulated  consists of moneys illegally retained  by the authorities. A governor  when appointed is probably possessed of no considerable fortune;  when he dies he may be a millionaire. Whence came his wealth?  Squeezed most certainly from the  tribes under his authority, and  therefore amassed only by the  prerogatives of the position in  which the sultan had placed him.  It has never struck the Moorish  government that these great fortunes might more honorably be  returned to the people from whom  they were stolen. The result is  entire confiscation tp the crown,  including often such private property as the governor may have  been possessed of before the ap-  fif ty- I pointment, and not seldom, too, of  eight  individuals,  about   equally | the   property   of    his    relatives.  en-  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, IT.

Accurate Tunneling.  In a description of the recently  opened Central London Railway,  the Builder says the longest separate length of tunnel driven was  from the Westbourue shaft to the  Marble-Arch shaft, the distance  being'over 1200 yards, and the work  resulted in an error of only five-  eighths, of an inch at the point  where a junction was elfected with  the tunnel driven by another firm  of contractors. In two of the sections bore-holes were put down into  the tunnel for the purpose of testing the lines, but generally the  lengths were driven through so  accurately that no recourse to boreholes was found necessary.

On Monday the arbitrators, Dr. Hall, W. J. Goepel, and W.  S. Dowsing, will examine the  ground in dispute  The city officials have had no  word froui the earl of Miuto in  response to the invitation extended  to him to visit Nelson. The inference is that the communication' has  not reached his hands. The viceregal party was expected in Rossland next Wednesday, and if this  program is adhered to the time  allowed for preparing a suitable  reception here will be short.  H, H. Beeves, C. P. R. agent at  Silverton, has resigned, to enter  business there. G-. B. Chandler,  formerly of the Nelson office, has  beeu appointed to the agency.  Samuel Rutherford has taken over  the C. P. R. agency at Rosebery.  Rev. S. Cleaver, M. A., of Winnipeg, who has been spending a couple  of months among friends at the  Coast, accompanied by Mrs. and  Miss S. Cleaver, arrived in the city  last evening and is visiting at the  Methodist parsonage. Mr, Cleaver  was formerly stationed at the  Metropolitan church, Victoria, and  is one of the most popular preachers  of his denomination in the Dominion. He will preach in the Methodist church here on Sunday evening.  The young peoples' societies of  the Baptist, Methodist aud Presbyterian churches will hold a joint  meeting on Tuesday night at St.  Paul's church. The delegate who  represented Nelson at the International Congress of Youug Peoples  Societies in London, England, this  year will submit a report.  The Nelson junior ball team leaves  this morning for Trail to play a  return match with the Trail juniors.  The Tribune and Miner newsboys  will play baseball on the recreation  grounds this morning. The lads  are enthusiastic baseballists and  promise a hot game. ���  Nelson was represented at the  Miner-Graves banquet in Grand  Forks on Thursday night by acting  mayor Irvine,0 aldermen Morrison  and Arthur, city engineer McCuIloch, city solicitor Wilson, captain  J. W. Troup, F. P. Gutelius and F.  W. Peters. The banquet was eminently successful. The guests numbered 125 and the function went oif  very smoothly. Alderman Irvine  responded to the toast of the neighboring municipalities, making a  neat speech. The visitors were  taken over the new Granby smelter  during their stay.  The printers of the city have received a challenge to play a game  of baseball with the Gluepot aggregation of ball players, the game to  take place tomorrow afternoon.  The printers have accepted the  challenge.  "Self Control" will be the subject  of Rev.

The sale of the Houston block,  which Messis.; Charles A. Waterman <fc Co. have in hand, takes place  this morning on the premises. The  property is the most valuable that  has been put upon the local market,  and the sale should . result in some  lively bidding.  The macadamizing of the section  of Baker street between Hall and  Josephine streets was completed  last night and opened for traffic.  The work has apparently been well  performed, the block presenting a  smooth, even and well turned appearance. The next block requires  a further coat of small stouo before  the final application of metal is put  on and the last rolling proceeded  with.  BUSINESS   IS  INCREASING  With Wholesalers.

GITY LOCAL NEWS  The matter of sending a delegate  from Nelson to the Trades and  ��� Labor Congress at Ottawa on the  18th inst..has been referred by the  local council to the affiliated unions.  It is probable that the eity will be  represented, and that its delegate  will be instructed to invite the Congress to convene in this province  next year.  The management of the football  club is arranging for a game between picked local teams at the recreation grounds on Monday morning. All playing' members of the  club are invited to participate, and  pjfcizens generally will be welcomed  at the match.     The ball will be  kicked off at 9.45 o'clock.  In several cases the sanitary officials have found trouble in inducing  citizens to pay the rate levied for  removing the garbage, and a new  system is to be adopted in dealing  with this class.    The city garbage  wagons will no longer call, and the  parties will be required to make  their own arrangements.   A close  watch, will be kept on the premises  and should garbage be allowed to  accumulate the owners will be prosecuted for maintaining a nuisance,  the penalty for which is severe.
