Array . J^cyfr'  'tz%.t  i_��"����  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  MOJNTDAYMORNI_NrG SEPTEMBER 10  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  ������.-. -51  ?i *,  ns  HUNDREDS KILLED IN TEXAS  Iu a Frightful Storm,0  v Houston, Texas, Sept. 9.���The  West Indian storm, which reached  the Gulf coast yesterday morning,  wrought awful havoc in Texas. It  is not known what has befallen the  city of Galveston, where it is reported a thousand lives have been  losfc, and tremendous property damage has been incurred.  The first news to reach this city  from Galveston was received, tonight. James C. Timraius, who lives  in Houston, and who is the general  superintendent of the National Express Company, arrived in the city  at 8 o'clock from Galveston. Af ber  remaining through the hurricane'  of Saturday he departed from Galveston on a schooner and came  across the bay to Morgan's point,  where he caught a train for Houston. The hurricane, Mr. Timmins"  said, was the worst ever known.  The cifcy, Mr. Timmins avers, is a  total wreck as far as he could see  from fche water front, and from the  Tremont Hotel. Water was blown  over the island by the hurricane.  TJie wind blowing at the rate of  eighty miles an hour straight from  tiie gulf. The gale was a steady  one, the" heart of ifc striking the  city at 5 o'clock yesterday evening  and continuing until midnight lasfc  night;, when ifc abated somewhat.  Of his own" knowledge Mr.^Timmins knew of only one house/ succumbing with fatal results, though  he heard of many residences carried  away with inmates. The house  that he saw destroyed was a saloon  and restaurant on Strand street, a  principal street of the city. This  three-story building was blown  down and nine men, prominent  citizens, were killed. Among the  dead are Charles Kelmer, senior,  k cotton buyer for an English firm,  Stanley C. Spencer, general manager of the Elder-Dempster- steamship line, and Richard Lord, manager for McFaddcns Cotton .Company, whose body- is still in the'  ruins. Secretary Bailey of the  wharf company, and several waiters  an''J customers saved themselves by  .lumping from the upper story before fche crash came. It is reported  thafc the orphan asylum and both  hospitals were destroyed, and if  this proves true the loss of life will  be great. The water extended  across the island. Mr. Timmins  said it was three feet deep in the  rotunda'of the Tremont Iiotel, and  was six feet deep in market square.  Along the water front the damage  Avas very great.  The roofs had been blown from  all the elevators, and the sheds  along the wharves were wrecked or  had lost their sides and were no  protection to the contents. Most  of the. small sailing crafts were  wrecked and were either piled up  on the wharves or floating bottom  side up in the bay.' There is a small  ~ste"ain_hip"asl_ore_three miles north  of Pelican island. She was flying  a British flag. Another big vessel  ���has been-driven'ashore, at Virginia  point, and another is aground at  Texas city. At the south point of  . Houston island an unknown ship  lies in a helpless condition.  The scene during the storm, Mr.  Trimmins says, could not be described. Women and children  were crow'ded into the Tremont  hotel where he was seeking shelter,  and all night these unfortunates  were bemoaning their losses of  kindred and fortune. They were  grouped about the stairways and  in the galleries aud rooms of the  hotel. The cifcy of Galveston, he  says, is now entirely submerged  and cut off from communication.  The boats are gone, railroads cannot be operated, and the water is  so high people cannot walk out by  way of the bridge across the bay  even should that bridge be standing.  Provisions will be badly needed,  as a great majority of the people  lost all they had. The water house  power works was wrecked, and a  water famine is feared, as the  cisterns were all ruins, and overflowed with saltwater. Mr. Tim-  inons says that this is the most  serious problem to face. The city  is in darkness, the electric-light  plant being in .ruins./.'There is no  way to estimate the property damage at present.  New York, September 0.���The  World tomorrow will print the following: "Austin, Texas, September 9.���Information has just reached  me that about 3000 lives have been  lost at Galveston, with an enormous  destruction of property.     No in  formation     from      other    points.  (Signed) John D. Sayers, governor."  DALLAS,    Sept.    9.���Telegraphic  communication with Souths Texas  is cut off about ICO miles north of  Houston.   Up to this hour it has  been impossible to obtain reliable  news from Galveston as to the extent of the hurricane iu that section.    Rumors of dire disaster are  flying thick and fasfc without being in any way authenticated.   All  that is known is thafc  the  disaster  has occurred, but its extent is nofc  known.   The lasfc wire the Western  Union had to Houston went down  at 1:30 this morning. This wire was  used by the Associated Press and  was working so badly at that hour  that  whatever information  Houston had to impart, could nofc be  made   oufc.   The' storm   centre   is  rapidly approaching northern Texas, and its fury wrecks a 11 telegraph  lines in its  path, doing  vast  damage aud killing people in scattered  localities. A cyclone has domolished  part of the town of Smith ville, on the  Missouri, Kansas & Texas Railway.  A number of persons are . reported  killed.    The railroad and telegraph  companies have gangs  and  wrecking traius out attempting to  work  their wires south, but the fierceness  of the storm makes it impossible for  them to gain any headway, having  to seek shelter in order to save their  lives:' ��� The conditions at Galveston  and  . Houston    are     undoubtedly  grave.   The four immense bridges,"  from   four   to   six ' miles  each  in  length, are reported to be "wholly  or partly wrecked.    The storm at  Temple was severe, and fears are  entertained that the eity is  badly  wrecked.   The railroad officials say  ifc   is   impossible   to   move   trains  south of Courtney.      Northbound  trains   from   Houston    last   night  Avere from 15 to 18 hours late.  A private message from San  Antonio states that a serious disaster occurred at Corpus Christi,  Rockport, and other coast towns,  the nature of Avhich cannot be  determined. A bulletin from Smitti-  ville at-noon' stated that the grain  ele\rators and other large buildings  at Galveston have been washed into"  the'bay. All, railroads southward  from Dallas at noon issued .bulletins instructing their agents to discontinue the sale of tickets or accepting freight for the south until  further orders. Without attempting to recite any of the various  disastrous rumors the conservative  opinion is that the situation at Galveston is extremely grave, with no  possible hope of news from that  section for many hours to come.  Dallas, September 9.���The Missouri, Kansas & Texas northbound  flyer is reported wrecked "near  Sayers.  Houston, September 9.���Meagre  reports are reaching here from the  country between Galveston and  Houston along the line of the Santa  Fe railroad. The town of Alvin is  reported to be practically demolished. .Hitchcock has suffered  from,the storm while the town of  Alta'Lbnia is reported without a  house standing.   The town of Pearl  "lia_~lost one half "of "its buildings.  L. B. Carleton, president of the  business league of Alvin, and prominent merchants there report not  a building is standing, either residence or business. Alvin is a town  of about 1200 inhabitants. Seven  persons were killed in and near the  town. They are: Mrs. Prather,  killed in Santa Fe railway wreck;  Mr. and Mrs. J.'M. Johnson, a sister  of Mrs. Johnson (name .not knoAvn),  S. C. Lewis, John Galapsy,"aud a  boy named Richardson.  Dallas, September 9.���The following telegram jusfc received from  Houston by the News: "Relief  train just returned. They could  not get closer than six miles of  Virginia point, Avhere the prairie  Avas covered Avifch lumber, debris,  tree trunks and dead bodies. Two  hundred corpses were counted from  the train. A large steamer is  stranded two miles this side of Virginia point, as though thrown up  by a tidal wave. Nothing can be  seen of Galveston. Two men were  picked up who had floated across  to the mainland, who say they estimate the loss of life up to the  time they lef fc at 2000." The above  message is addressed fco superintendent Felfcon, Dallas, and comes from  Mr. Vaughan, manager of the  Western Union office at Houston.  Houston, September 9.���The  storm that raged along the coast  last night Avas. the most disastrous  that has ever visited this section.  The Avires are down and there is no  way of finding oufc just what has  happened, but enough is known to  make it certain that there has been  great loss of life and destruction of  property all along the coast for 100  miles inland. Every town that is  reached reports one or more dead,  and the property damage is so great  that there is no way of computing  it accurately. Galveston remains  isolated. The Houston Post and  the Associated Press made efforts  to get special trains and tugs today  Avifch Avhich to reach the island city.  The railroad companies declined to  risk their locomotives.  All sorts of rumors prevail bufc  with no substantial basis. Ifc is  knoAArn that the railroad bridges  across the bay at Galveston are  either wrecked or are likely .to be  destroyed with the weight of trains  on them. The approaches to the  Avagon bridge are gone and it is  rendered useless. The bridge of  the Galveston, Houston & Northern  railway is standing bufc the drawbridge over Clear creek and Edge-  water are gone, and the road cannot get trains through to utilize the  bridge across the bay. A train  Avent down the Columbia tap road  this morning as far as Chenango  junction. The town was greatly  damaged and nine negroes were  taken from the ruins of one house.  The train could proceed no further  aud came back to Houston. The  small town of Brookshire on, the  Missouri, Kansas & Texas, Avas almost Aviped out by the storm. The  crew of a work train brought this  information. When the traiu left  the bodies of four persons had been  recovered and search for.others was  proceeding. Hampstead,- " across  country from Brookshire", was also  greatly damaged, but so far as  known no lives were lost.  Sabin Pass has not been heard  from today. The last news was  received from there, yesterday  morning and at that time the water  was surrounding the old town at  the pass, and the wind was i*ising  and the waves coming high. .From  the new toAvn, which is some distance back, the water had reached  the depot and was running.through  the streets. The people were leaving for the high country knoAvn as  the Backridge, and it is believed all  escaped. Two bodies have been  brought in from Seabrooke on Galveston bay, and 17 persons are  missing there.. Three-persons-were  droAvned at Morgan's point and  others were missing. With the exception of those of Mrs. Nicholson  and Miss Jane Lock, the bodies of  the dead have not yet been identified.  In Houston one person was killed,  Henry Black, hack driver. The  property damage is great, a conservative estimate placing it at  $250,000. The Merchants and Planters' oil mill was wrecked, entailing  a loss of $40,000. The Dickson car-  wheel works suffered to the extent  of $16,000. The big Masonic Temple, which is the property of the  grand lodge of the state, was partly  wrecked. Nearly every church in  the city was damaged. Many houses  were unroofed. The residence portion of the town presents a dilapidated appearance, but the damage  in this-part of the city has not  been so great as in some othei;s_._  ThlTstreets are almost impassable  because of the litter of shade trees,  fences, telephone wires and poles.  Another train has left here for  Galveston, making the third today.  The two proceeding ones have not  been heard from, as all wires are  prostrated.  STRIKE WAS NOT ENDORSED  It May Be A\rerted  Indianapolis, Sept. 9. ��� The  national executive board of the  United Mine Workers of America  adjourned sine die today without  promulgating a formal endorsement  of the application of the miners of  the anthracite districts for permission to strike.  "We certainly issue the order for  a general strike," said one of the  board members in speaking early  in the day. "We care little what  the operators have to say as to the  impending distress in the Wyoming  and other valleys. We are running  things from Indianapolis now. The  statement that there will be great  distress does not worry us. We will  take care of our men if they go on  a strike, and will not ask the operators for any financial aid."  It was announced today that the  large defense fund held by the Illinois miners cannot be used Avithout the consent of the local unions  in that state,  One of the features of the conference is the attendance of several  prominet men Avho are not board  members.    W. D. Ryan, secretary-  treasurer of the' Illinois miners, is  on the ground. The 'Illinois men  have a defense fund of nearly $200,-  000, and it is reported that Ryan is  here to pledge the Illinois organization in behalf of financial support  of the Illinois miners in case of a  general strike. The Illinois "miners'  defense fund is the largest ever accumulated by a state organization  of coal miners.    ' .  BOER  WAR ABOUT ENDED  Boberts Going Home.  London, Sept. 8.���"All rumors  from China during the last tAventy-  four hours haA'e been trifles light as  air. Public attention has been centered upon the favorable news from  the Transvaal, where progress has  been made in the-.direction which  will hasten a.dissolution of parliament. The occupation of Lydenburg by Bullers' army, with the  scattering of -Botha's forces east  and north, implies the loss of the  most important- strategic positions  by the Boers since the evacuation  of Pretoria. The Boer forces are  still in the field, but they left several guns behind them, and ean no  longer be said to. have a centre of  regular defensive Avarfare. The  only remaining, objective point in  lord Roberts' campaign, is Koomati-  porfc,r which"can--bo; occupied after  the raihvay line' has been cleared  eastward from Waterval and Machadodorp.  Otherwise. little remains to be  done except the gradual suppression  of the raids' conducted by small  bands of Boer guerrillas and the  capture of the .leader's. The presence of lord -Roberts will not be  necessary for police work of this  kind, and a fresh" series of his dispatches published from the war  office confirms. the ��� forecasts of political experts respecting his retirement from" the front and of the  speedy dissolution of parliament.  If general Botha has gone into the  -woods, and presidents Kruger and  Steyn are seeking refuge in neutral  territory, ...lord ^S^lisbury, and Mr.  Chamberlain can order the elections  for next month on the register compiled a year ago, Avhich Avill exclude  occupiers and lodgers qualified since  July, 1898. This will be sharp  practice in politics, but will be  justified by the necessity of the  situation. Rumors are current in  the political clubs thafc lord Roberts  will leave Pretoria at the' end of  this month, and sail for England  after making short; stays at Bloemfontein and CapetoAvn, and that the  elections will occur soon after his^  arrival.     .> /*  These reports are not confirmed  at the war office, nor from any  trustAvorthy source. Equally irresponsible are the rumor mongers  who have been naming the dates  for the election, when lord Salisbury  is silent and Arthur \ Balfour is  playing golf at North Berwick.  Experts who are following-closely-.  "tlle^detailsTof the campaign assert;  that general Buller's cavalry will  probably advance to Pilgrim's Rest  in order to capture the stores which  have been accumulated there, and  that Lydenburg will then be left  under charge of a strong garrison.  The remaining troops under his  command will then be free to  march eastAvard to Koomatipoorfc.  Kruger, Steyn and Reitz are reported to be on the railway line  east of Nelspruit;, Avhich a train can  .run into Portuguese territory in  the course of four or five hours.  There is a Boer camp afc Barberton,  bufc there are few guns there. The  entire Boer force in the eastern  Transvaal probably does not exceed  5000, and it; cannot; be readily concentrated. Veterans are at a loss  to understand how the Boer campaign can be prolonged beyond the  end of this month, unless some unexpected reverse to British arms  occurs near Pretoria or Johannesburg."   LOCAL MINING NOTES.  The directors of the Exchequer  Mining Company Avill meet shortly,  and it is probable that work AA'ill  be resumed on the property within  the next few weeks.  A report comes from the May and  Jenny property, on Forty-nine  creek, that Avhile crosscutting from  the main drift the pay chute Avas  encountered and three feet explored  in ore which showed colors throughout. The property is in shape to  warrant a ten-stamp mill, and as  the owners are contemplating the  purchase of a mill the May and  Jennie may become a producer at  an early date.  M'KINLEY'S FOREIGN POLICY  Reviewed in His Acceptance.  Washington,    September    9.���  President McKinley's letter accepting the nomination for president  by the Republican party, and addressed   to   the  chairman of  the  notification     committee,   says   in  relation to the attitude of the administration anent the South African war:   "In the unfortunate contest between Great Britain and the  Boer   states   of South Africa, the  United   States   has maintained an  attitude of neutrality, in accordance   Avith. its   well   known   traditional policy.   It did not hesitate,  however,  when requested by  the  governments of the South African  republics to exercise its good offices  for a cessation of hostilities.    It is  to be observed that while the South  African republics made a like request to other powers, the  United  States   was   the   only   one  which  complied, bufc the British government declined to accept the intervention of any power."  Regarding, the Chinese question  he says:   "The country has been  fully advised of the purposes of the  United States in , China, and they  will; be . faithfully, adhered  to   as  already defined. The nation is filled  Avith gratitude that the little band,  among   them   many   of   our   own  blood, who for two months have  been subjected to privations and  peril   by   the   attacks   of   pitiless  hordes at the Chinese capital, exhibiting supreme   courage   in the  face of despair, have been able by  God's favor to greet their rescuers  and find shelter under their own  flags.   The people not alone'of this  land, but of all lands, have watched  and' prayed  through" the   terrible  stress and protracted agony of the  helpless   sufferers   in   Pekin,   and  while at times  the   dark   tidings  seemed to make all .hope vain,"the  rescuers never faltered in the heroic  fulfillment of their noble task.   We  are grateful, to , our "own  soldiers  and sailors, and -marines, and to all  'the brave men- who, though-assembled   under    many   standards,  and representing peoples, and races  strangers  in  country  and  speech,  Avere yet united in the sacred mission of carrying  succor to the be-"  sieged with a success thafc is noAV  the cause of the world's rejoicing."  In conclusion he says:   "Not only  have Ave reason for thanksgiving  for our material blessings, but Ave  should rejoice in the complete unification of the people of all sections  of our country that has so happily  developed,. in   the last feAV years,  and made for us a more perfect  union.   Thcobliteratiou of our differences, the common devotion to  the flag, and the common sacrifices  for   its    honor   so    conspicuously  shown by the men of the north and  south in the Spanish war, have so  strengthened the ties of friendship  aud mutual   respect that nothing  _can_e_v_er_again_divide- us The-na-  tion faces the new century gratefully and hopefully, Avith increasing love of country, Avith firm faith  in its free institutions, and with  high resolve that they shall not  perish from the earth."  IT IS HOW A BOER HUNT  Buller Operating From Lydenburg.  Cape Toavn, September 9.���Sir  Redvers Buller continues his advance. He crossed the Mauchberg,  10 miles east of Lydenberg, and  came into action with the Boers.  The occupation of Lydenberg,  Avhich took place last Thursday, is  regarded as marking one of the  last stages of the Avar? The Boers  now talk of trekking into German  territory. Lord Methuen is marching on Lychtenburg from Mafeking.  It is said that papers seized at Pre*  toria show that the Netherlands  Raihvay Company in-many Avays  actively assisted the Boers. It converted its workshops iuto arsenals,  and provided the Transvaal forces  with horseshoes.  London, September 9.���The following dispatch has been received  at the war office from lord Roberts:  "Belfast. Friday, September 7.���Ian  Hamilton succeeded in turning the  Boers' right flank, clearing the way  for Buller's advance. The Boers  are split up and going northward  and east. Most of the guns and  stores have been sent to Krugers-  porfc, a small toAvu tAventy  miles north by east of Lydenburg. Dundonald and Brockle-  hurst occupied Lydenburg Friday.  "Hart, who is operating southwest  of Krugersdorp, reports that among  the dead Boers left an the field it is  believed that the body of Theron  has been found." Commandant  Theron of the Boer army was  known as a great scout. Ifc was he  who commanded the Boer flying  patrol that derailed and burned,  early in August, near Honingspruit,  the train carrying United States  consul Stowe and flying the Stars  and Stripes.  MILITIA MEN AT  CHURCH  Inspection on Friday Evening.  The'Nelson rifle., company- attended divine service afc St. Savi-  our's church yesterday morning.  The militiamen turned out 22  strong ond presented a smart appearance. The addition of the new  regimental badge to the plains hat  worn by the company is a marked  improvement. The regimental  band under H. Wambold headed  the parade."  "The program for the week includes parades tonight, Wednesday  and Thursday nights. The company AA'ill be inspected- on Friday  night by lieutenant-colonel Benson,  district officer commanding. - The  local officers have been notified tliat  the D. O. C. will allow 15 members  of the company now in active service to be counted on the strength  of the corps. ��� This is an important  concession, and is the first time the  poinfc has arisen in the Canadian  militia. Wifch the 15 absentees  counted, the local company will be  up to the standard ' numerically,  and as the members have been at-_  tending drills faithfully, the company should make a good showing.  Lieutenant-colonel-Benson states  that the company will be inspected  in Maxim, gun 'drill, and the first  gun practice takes place tonight.  The Maxim will be moved to the  skating rink. Sergeant G: M. Phillips has been placed in charge' of  the gnn squad. -The men have had  comparatively ' little work on the  gun',: but-theiinstruction-by the  non-commissioned officer. from Esquimalt will stand in good stead.  A company shoot at the ranges  is being arranged for October 6th'.  The competition will be confined to  militiamen and a prize list will be  drawn up. ;  A  WAR AND POLITICS MIXED  Generals as Election Agents.  London, Sept. 9.���The rumors respecting lord Robert's retirement  from the chief command in South  Africa, and general Baden-PoAvell's  visit to England are well founded,  although premature. The campaign  has degenerated into a hunt for  half a dozen leaders. When they  are either run down or captured,  or-driven���across���the-border-intcf  neutral territory, the bands of raiders will break up. This may be an  affair of weeks or months, for while  there is science in war, there is luck  in hunting.  The return of lord Roberts will  enable the government to dissolve,  and order the general elections, as  it is practicallyoeA'idence that the  war in South Africa has virtually  ended. Ifc has not yet been officially announced, but will probably  be the sequel of the capture of  Lydenburg. General Baden-Powell  has not yet been ordered to Eug-  land, biit he has received an offer  of leave of absence from South  Africa if he wishes to pay a flying  visit to London before settling  down to important Avork in the  conquered territory. Unionist Avhips  will be pleased if he be in England  on the eve of fche dissolution of  parliament, but the war oflice will  avoid the appearance of ordering  him home as an election agent.  The trend of events points clearly  to elections in October, or early in  November, although the dates have  not yet beeii settled. The explanation commonly offered by the  Unionists is that the campaign has  established an urgent necessity for  a thorough reorganization of the  British army, and that the parliament elected five years ago cannot  undertake so complex and difficult  a Avork. Probably there will be  better election appeals when lord  Salisbury and Mr. Balfour aud Mr.  Chamberlain are in fighting form,  but the fact that a reorganization  of the army is momentarily the  issue is significant proof that the  military processes of the Avar are  considered unsatisfactory.

Theirs is an influence which none of  the managers of the old-lime parties care to bid for.   For years they  have fed the prohibitionists upon  promises, but promises have served  their day, and the cold water people now demand something more  - definite.     They desire that their  fad shall be raised to the dignity of  an issue, which is just what the  party men desire to, avoid.   The result is that the prohibitionists are  casting   about   for    new    factors  to       which       they       can      attach     themselves.     They      tried  to engraft themselves upon the "independent or  labor party, which  was recently created in 'Toronto,  and succeeded so far that a prohibition plank was' inserted in the  platform.    But their triumph was  short lived.    The independents became dubious of the alliance, and  upon a reconsideration the prohibition plank was shelved by a vote of  more than two to one.   This sets  the prohibitionists out as a party  to which hone of the other parties  care to tie up, and  leaves them  nothing to do but make the straight  issue themselves or split among the  other parties..  The Republican party in Montana has decidecMo make an eight-  hour law an issue in the approach-  pg   election.   W. A.  Clark,   the  Democratic politician and mine-  owner, some time ago adopted the  eight-hour day in his Montana properties, aud the Republicans not  wishing to be caught at a disadvantage, Avill make an effort to  have eight hours fixed as a days  Avork in the mines throughout the  state.          In Ontario and Quebec it seems  impossible to separate religion from  politics. Jusfc at present the Toronto Globe, the leading paper of  Canada, is devoting about half a  column daily in an effort to prove  that Irish-Canadian Roman Catholics are not ostracized and excluded  from the public service.  It should not be necessary for a  neAVSpaper like the Victoria Times  to besmear the memory of sir John  A. Macdonald in order to establish  a certificate of character for sir  Wilfrid Laurier and his colleagues.  The Liberal government is not on  trial for the doings of the Conservative administrations which preceded  ifc. It has been making history for  itself for the past four years. Surely in thafc time it did something  which its journals can applaud.  The Liberal Candidate.  Inland Sentinel.  The choice of the convention will,  Ave think, be as heartily - endorsed  by all  Liberals   in   Yale-Cariboo-  Kootenay, as it was enthusiastically  and unanimously  approved of by  every delegate present.   In W. A."  Galliher the Liberals of this constituency have a candidate in whom  they have every   justification   for  placing the utmost confidence.   Por  several years he has been an active  worker   in   the Liberal ranks, and  has filled with   the   utmost   satisfaction-the office of president of the  Nelson Liberal Association since its  inception.   That   his     nomination  was so cordially approved by the  .entire Kootenay delegation testifies eloquently to his high standing  in the Liberal ranks of that very  important part of the constituency."  Mr.  Galliher is one of the leading  barristers of Nelson, a young man  of admitted ability, great force of  character, a good speaker and an  untiring   worker   in   the cause of  Liberalism.    Backed as he will be  by   the   hearty   support of every  Liberal in Yale-Cariboo-Kootenay,  it is pretty safe to predict that he  will   succeed   Mr.   Bostock in the  representation of this constituency  at Ottawa.  ant for both the mine and smel-  er it is unlikely the latter will be  in operation before November and  probably not until December.  Japs Ordered Home.  Salt Lake, September 9.���A  special to the Tribune from Poca-  tello, Idaho, says: Prom information originating here, it would appear that Japan is preparing to  mobilize a still larger army for her  war iu Asia. For a week past  every mail from the west has  brought letters from the Japanese  government to Y. Takisha, in  charge of the Japanese laborers on  tho Oregon Short Line, instructiug  him to return certain of his men  for service in the army, and  under these orders a number  of   men   have   left    for    Japan.  Ifc appears that the demand has  suddenly become urgent, for yesterday five cablegrams were received by Takisha, ali dated Yokohama, September Oth, and two  more today, bearing today's date,  all relative to the quick return of  the men. There are about 1300  Japanese in the service of the Oregon Short Line, and while Mr. Takisha is not prepared to say Iioav  many will be drafted by his government, he anticipates a heavy re-  dudtion on this account.  j�����'_&&&&&&^3^&_��&&&&S;^&&_��:$&���_;����:*&���;__;��;�� ii*_saa_SAa__Jsaa*A__A______!_i____________^ .

Old Harry McColcord of Chicago  starts from his sleep every night,  I) ilshaking and sweating and screain-  y ing to Blondin to save him from  / Niagara.       Forty    years   ago   he  crossed the cataract on the great  rope walker's back, and the horror  of it is greater now than it was  then���greater and growing every  year.  If you have a narrow escape of  being run over by a car, you think  lightly of it as you skip nimbly out  of danger, but half a minute later,  perhaps your blood runs cold with  the realizatian of what nearly happened comes to you. So it is with  \ Harry McColcord.  '_��� .Hf? was y��ur*g when he entrusted  his life to the nerve of a fellowman  [strutting on a thread stretched  ���across a boiling gulf in the sight of  many thousands of breathless people. Now he is old and his blood is  thin, and he suffers greater agonies  of fear than he did in the sensational 46 minutes with Blondin on  the rope.  Every night he lives again  through every moment of that  ordeal. Only death, he says, can  relieve him from the haunting  vision.  .���     He was Blondin's business agent.  ! Light, athletic, daring, with a taste  for adventure, and a knowledge of  ropes acquired in his youth when  he  ran  away  to sea, He won the  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Ska/juay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  Frenchman's regard, and learned to  repose perfect faith in the equilibs-  tric genius of his employer.   But  although he several times allowed  Blondin, to   carry him on a tight  rope under canvas, he hesitated at  _the_stupendous-7proposal���to-ride-  pickaback across the Niagara, until  Blondin appealed to his faith and  friendship,     and   somebody     else  promised him $1,000.  ���_ The   rope,   although   drawn   as  tight   as   possible   by   a windlass  worked by 16 horses on the American   side,   sagged   50 ��� feet in the  middle, where it was only 27 feet  above the water..   For 60 feet of its  length/too,   across the I'apids, it  swayed   in   the   wind    and   the  draught   from   the walls, with   a  play from sido to side of 50 feet.  For the remainder of its length, at  both ends, it was held fairly steady  at intervals of 20 feet by guy ropes  weighed with bags of sand to keep  them out of the way of Blondin's  balance pole.  It was a journey down hill and  up hill. When he was fairly over  the water-Blondin had to rest. McColcord alighted and stood on the  rope, with his hands on the Frenchman's shoulders. After a minute  he climbed up again and the perilous march was made over th.  steamer Maid of the Mist on whicli  the renowned pistol shot, Travis,  was to exhibit his marksmanship  by shooting a hole through Blondin's hat. Blank cartridges were  used, and at the third shot Blondin  deftly punched a hole in his own  hat. The. crowd was none the  wiser.  But the exciting part of the trip  was to come. This is how McColcord describes it:  "The rope was comparatively  steady until we reached the centre,  where there were no guy lines. We  had made about ten feet of this  sixty feet of distance when suddenly Blondin tottered in an effort  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.

'  to walk straight, the pole going  furiously up and down. He had  lost his balance.  '.'In . that moment his "' advice  most forcibly impressed itself upon  me and I strictly followed it, rest-  __ng_iJassjvely_aud_nimbly_upon-his-  shoulders, to stay or fall with him  as might happen. Discipline rose  superior to instinct.  "Unable to regain his balance, he  ran along the rope, the impetus  keeping us up, the pole thrashing  madly up and down for 50 feet,  when we reached the 'first- guy line  from the New York side. On this  line he stepped, when it immediately broke, and the main rope,  pulled by the corresponding guy  line, was violently jerked sideways.  .With his wonderful agility he re^  covered himself just in time and  won equilibrium enough to run the  next brace of guy lines 20 feet'  away, where he halted.'  " ' Get down, quick!' he said, and  I obeyed.  "He was like a piece of. marble;  every muscle was terse and rigid;  large beads of perspiration trickled  from him. It was;then I most admired his grit and coolness. Neither  by word or sign did he manifest  his   knowledge   that   a   dastardly  attempt had beeu made to kill us  by a gang of murderous gamblers,  who adopted this method of-trying  to save their wretched bets that  , Blondin could never do the trick.  "Again I got on his back, and by  and by we toiled up the incline of  the rope toward the American  shore, confronting a great sea of  faces fixed and intent with interest. Some shaded their eyes as if  dreading to" see us fall; some held  out their arms as if to grasp us and  save us from falling. A band was  trying to play, but ,tb_e wrought-up  musicians 'could evoke only discordant notes.  " 'Look out, Blondin,' I said.  'Here comes our danger. Those  people"wiir?ush us and crowd-us"  and themselves over the bank.'  " ' What shall I do?' he asked.  : " Make a rush and drive through  them.' And this he successfuly did.  . ; " The scene that followed our arrival on terra firma was indescribable. , Cheers rose louder than  Niagara and everybody seemed  crazy. The journey���to me an age-  had occupied forty-six minutes."  Gold From the- North.

The  visitors won the game on the merits  of their play, the home team putting up about as yellow football as  they have played during the season.  When Grand Forks attacked a  couple of bad flukes in the defence  enabled them to score and when  Nelson attacked their forwards"  could not shoot on the enemy's  goal with any degree of accuracy.,  The visitors as a whole were in  better condition than the Nelson  men and earned their victory. The  teams lined up as follows:  NELSON*.  Partridge   Munroe   Dill   Montgomery...  Archibald         "  Thompson        "  McNichol Left Wing  Crough   Duncan   Martin..:   Humes   " Referee���J. Rao.  In the first half of the game the  honors went to the visitors who  scored from a-corner kick and again  off Dill's error. The Nelson men  did not show to .^special advantage!  In the second; half the tables "were  turned.-; Theiplayers were changed  about and the 'result was an infusion of spirit into the game which  should have pulled the. match out  of the fire.- Por the first 20 minutes after half time, the ball was in  Grand Fork's territory practically  all the time. Corner kicks came  thick and fast, and the Nelson forwards fired a. fusilade of shots ou  goal. The corners were kicked  wild and the, shots were poorly  directed, however, and the net result was nothing. Finally Nelson,  got a free kick, which was well  placed by Martin, and rushed  through by the forward line.
