RECEIVED WITH DUE HONORS  DEAD KEEP DRIFTING BACK  . Upon Galveston Beach.  Galveston, Texas, September 12.  All attempts at burying the dead  at   Galveston   have   been   utterly  abandoned.     The bodies are now  being disposed of in the swiftest  manner possible.     Scores of them  were buried today' and hundreds  were taken out to sea and  thrown  overboard.    This morning it was  found thafc a- large number of the  bodies which had been previously  thrown in the bay were  washed  back upon the shore,'and the situation was then rendered worse than  before they were first taken  into  the   barges   and  thrown into  the  water.  Ifc will now never be known  how many have lost their lives. No  list of the dead has been kept, and  ifc will be utterly impossible to form  an estimate from now on.  The waterworks machinery has  been cleared of the debris, and the j  Nelson Acquits Itself Well.  Nelson's reception  to   lord   a nd  lady Minto went off smoothly y ester-das'-, and there is every reason to  believe that ,^fche visitors'  sions of thanks and  en,ioy  such license shall be made direct to  the Board of Licensing  Commissioners not less than fonrteen days  before the sitting of said  Board,  tliroughjthe clerk of the said Board;  a copy of such application shall be  published   or   inserted   for thirty  days at least in a newspaper published in the Municipality  where  such application is made, and posted  up in a conspicuous place upon the  outside of the premises sought to be  licensed, in such a manner as to be  readily perceived by the public, for  a space of at least fourteen days  before the sitting of said Board.  The Board of Licensing Commissioners shall nofc be bound to grant  such license if, in the opinion of the  majority of the Board then present,  the  public interests justify a  fusal."  34.

It is thought it will be   possible to  turn water in the mains tomorrow.  All saloons - were closed by the  chief of police on Sunday.    "At a  meeting of the general committee  of the eity officials today the policing   of   the   eity  was     discussed.  Mayor     Jones     announced     that  adjutant-general Scurry would take  charge of the situation with the  soldiers and citizens.     The   cifcy is  patrolled   by   aboufc    2000   police  oflicers, special officers, soldiers and  deputy    sheriffs.'     Orders     were  issued to the soldiers and   police  -to kill any,person caught in the act  of robbing the dead.     Up to Tuesday morning seven negro vandals  had been discovered and had paid  the penalty of their   crimes   with  their lives.     They   were shot and  their bodies were carted away with  dead victims of the storm.  No liquor is permitted to be sold  under any circumstances unless ordered by the chairman of one of  the committees, or by a physician  who must state that it is to be  used for medicinal purposes.   All  persons not having business on the  streefs after dark must be identified before they will be allowed to  pass. The police department has issued strict orders, and these orders  will be enforced, to rid the city of  all outside sporting element.   Detectives from Houston and   Dallas  have arrived here.   No gambling is  permitted aud any violation is persecuted to the fullest extent.  Dunng the stornLSaturday=night^  "two young men of the Boddiker  family, with the aid of a skiff, rescued over forty people and took  them to the university building,  where they found shelter.  Dr. J.  M. Frye, who   has  been  observer of the weather   for ten  years, has a theory that ,,the storm  wliich visited Galveston originated  in the vicinity of Port Eads, and  was nofc the hurricane which was  reported on the Florida coast.   The  first knowledge of the Galveston  storm  was  the report of a wind j  velocity of 48 miles per hour at  Port Eads on   Saturday   evening. I  High winds were also' reported at  Pass   Christian.     The  Port   Eads  storm Dr.  Fry thinks was a distinct storm from that of Florida  and   was   confined   to   the    Gulf.  Mayor Jones today estimated the  loss of life in and around Galveston  at 5000.  expies-  appreciation  were   sincere.     The weather was  splendid, and hundreds of citizens  turned out to ''welcome the representatives of royalty.    Every effort  was put forth to impress upon the  governor-general the extent of the  spirit of loyalty which prevails in  the queen city of: the Kootenays,  and the visitors seemed to  their brief stay.  TJie   special   train   bearing   the  vice-regal party pulled in atthe C".  P. R. depofc at 2:45 o'clock; Streamers  of bunting hung  from   cedar  trees decorated the platform and  the guard of honor, consisting of  the Nelson company of the Rocky  Mountain Rangers, with the band,  was drawn   up alongside.   Alderman Irvine, chairman of the reception   committee,'   aldermeu    Hall,  Arthur   and   Morrison    and' city  clerk Strachan represented the city  council and G. V.'Hblt, J. Roderick  Robertson, A. R.' Sherwood, A. G.  Gamble,   secietary -Swannell   and  other   members   of' the   board of  trade were present with a couple of  hundred citizens.  When the train drew up the mil-  | itia   company ,- came  to attention,  and as lord  Minto alighted arms  were   presented,-* while   the   band  played tbe national anthem.   The  party   consisted   of   the earl and  countess of Minto, their daughters,  lady Eileen and lady Ruby, captain  Graham of the Coldstream  Guards,  aide-de-camp; Arthur Guise, comptroller of'his excellency's household;  Arthur   F.   Sladen, private secretary, and sergeant-major Rogers of  the Governor-general's Foot Guards,  Ottawa.  Lord Minto was presented to  alderman Irvine, who in turn - presented the other members of the  reception committee. His excellency then inspected the militiamen, congratulating the officer in  command upon the smart appearance of the men and tlieir striking  uniform.  The procession was formed, and  the visitors were escorted to the  central school grounds, where a  platform had been erected and here  the scholars were drawn up, and as  the vice-regal party entered the  grounds, principal Soady gave the  signal for the national anthem.  When the visitors, were seated on  dais, which was covered with bunting and decorated with sweet peas,  Strachan, city clerk,  read the  Will  future'a certainty.   An allusion has  been made to the men you have  sent to South Africa.     The Canadian contingent has indeed covered  itself with glory, and  I hope you  will   soon   have your   men   home  again with all the distinction they  | are entitled to.    The assistance of  Canadians   to the imperial forces  has doue   an.   immense   service in  strengthening tho empire, and I believe that should Ave ever again become   involved   in   war   we  emerge stronger than ever."  Little Misses Ivy Johnstone,  Bessie White and Jessie Currie  ascended the platform and presented' handsome bouquets to the  countess and her daughters.  Alderman Irvine called for three  cheers   for   their excellencies and  the response was most enthusiastic.  The school.children then sang "The  Red, White and Blue."     Principal  Soady was presented to lord Minto,  who requested a half holiday for  the children, and in recognition of  this   fche   children   added  another  salvo of cheers.  The visitors with a delegation of  the   reception   committee took  tram car and went over the line.  At the   corner of   Stanley  Victoria     streets     the     car   was  stopped while the fire brigade made  an exhibition run in fast time.  . The reception at the Hotel Phaii  in the evening proved to be a pleasant function.   The dining room was  utilized   for   the   affair   and   was  charmingly arranged.     A canopy  was erected of flags, and over the  front was  the word "Minto" in a  harmonious'relief of colored lights.  The floor was covered with Turkish  rugs,     and     colored     chandeliers  throughout lent a pleasant color to  the whole.  The Nelson orchestra was present  and   played   during   the   evening.  Mrs. Parry and Messrs. Kydd and  Booth sang.  . The earl, and 'countess of Minto  arrived at 8:45, accompanied by  captain Graham, aide-de-camp, Mr.  Guise, Mr. Sladen and sergeant-  major Rogers. Lady Minto ' was  attired in a white silk gown, and  wore a,magnificent tiara and necklace of diamonds. Lord Minto was  iu   "  PRICE FIVE CEtfTS  J. C.

Gilchrist's office  here,    stating    that   a   wrecked  steamer, believed to be the Lyons,  had been sighted five miles off Con-  neaufc, and with the aid of glasses a  dozen or fifteen men  could be seen  clinging to the rigging.    Tugs have  been ordered sent out from Con-  neaut to the assistance of those on  the wrecked steamer.  IMPRESSING MEN FOR WORK  20,000 CONVERTS MURDERED1  In the Northern Provinces.

Large numbers of mission^*  a  and  Railroads Charge No Fares.  Galveston, Texas, September 12.  ���At a meeting, of the relief committee held this afternoon reports  were read from the various wards.  The chairman called for armed men  to assist in^ getting the labor to  bury the dead and clear the wreckage, and arrangements were made  to supply this demand.   The situation in the city today is that there  are plenty  of   volunteers for the  service, but an insufficiency of arms.  There have been two or three small  riots, bufc fche officers have managed  to quell them.  The committee rejected the proposition of trying to pay for work  and letting the laborers secure their  own rations. It was decided to go  ahead impressing- men into - service  if necessary, issuing orders for  rations only to' those who worked  or were unable to work. All of the  ward chairmen reported the imperative need of disinfectants. A committee was appointed to gather all  the disinfectants in the city, securing the limewhich escaped-wetting  and to obtain more  aries are still unaccounted for, and;;5|  small hope is entertained for 'their ^j?  escape. ��� " '"' \^'  Native reports are subjected to >f|  the most careful scrutiny, with tiie Till  result that although there may-be'T;.:  some exaggeration it is impossible %,;  to doubt that in the main they areVj<||  correct.

Yarmouth Liberals have nominated  Thomas Flmk, sitting member, as  the candidate at the general elections.  in  the following terms:   "Citizens  of Nelson and members of the board  of trade, I wish to thank you very  heartily for the kind and enthusiastic reception you have accorded  lady Minto and myself on our first;  visit to Nelson.    Our journey has  been a hurried one, and at almost  every place I have been compelled  to apologize   for   our short stay,  which   I  very   much regret.   We  have been greatly pressed for time,  particularly    as    the    lamentable  death of the duke of Edinburgh delayed us at Victoiia, and rendered  it necessary to postpone the acceptance of hospitalities until our return  trip.    As a result   we have  been   four   or   five   days   late all  through.    I feel that I owe Nelson  a special apology.   It was our intention to proceed straight through  to Lethbridge owing to the number  of prior engagements we have in  the  Northwest territories until  I  learned that a necessary delay for  train connections would  enable us  to spend a few hours in your city,  and I am very sorry that any confusion should have arisen in regard  to our telegrams.     Ifc  is a great  pleasure to visit your cifcy, which is  indeed lovely to look at.   In this  young country ifc is extraoadinary  to see cities springing up and attaining within a short time all  the  luxuries of Euroiie.   While this is  not my first visit to British Columbia it is my first to Nelsou,  for  when     I     was      here     iu     1885  this district   was not opened up.  Now I find rising cities and a splendid future ahead.     I must heartily  congratulate you upon  the. enterprise  and energy of  which   lias   made   were taken  by captain Graham who then  presented each to lord and  Lady Minto who shake hands  warmly, and addressed a few words  to each.  The reception concluded aboufc  10:30. The vice-regal party were  then driven to the city wharf  where their cars had been placed  on a barge ready for the outward  jour_tey. The military band headed  the procession, followed by their  excellencies carriage, the militia  company and the Salvation Army  band.  The steamer Moyie was tied up  at the city 'wharf and the party  boarded her at 4 o'clock. She made  ajtrip tp_Fiye-i-tileJ_oint=and=backv'  running down to the C.P.R. shipyards before returning to the dock.  The party then went to their  car  your  success  people  in   the  for dinner  The proceedings prior to the departure   of the   visitors were decidedly the most lively of the day,  and the Chinese section carried off  the honors in point of enthusiasm.  Front street was lighted by long  strings of large paper lanterns, and  in front of the Chinese stores several  hundred  celestials celebrated  wibh a vigor  which  put  the new  year festival  quite  in the shade.  Tliey   exploded    strings   of    firecrackers and giant bombs, burned  joss sticks in  buudles and bauged  their brass cymbals with might and  main. As tlieir excellencies' carriage  passed   tho din  was ear-splitting,  but tho governor-general seemed to  be intensely amused.  The procession was followed to  the wharf by 400 or 500 citizens  who joined heartily in the volleys  of cheers which wero started from  time to time. A number of small  craft were illuminated with lanterns and colored lights, the effect  on the still water being chai ming.  The military band played the  national anthem and the army  band contributed "Auld Lang Syne"  as the steamer moved out amid a  final salute of tooting whistles.  Steamer Founders and Crew Lost.  Cleveland, Ohio, September 12.  ���A telegram from Erie says: The  steamer John B. Lyons foundered  off Girard, Pennsylvania, in the big  gale last night, and it. is believed  that fourteen persons went down  with her. The Lyons carried a  crew of 10, two of whom reached  to Houston free,  Work on the waterworks has not  progressed as satisfactorily as had  been hoped. The men did not work  last night.  Down the coast from Galveston,  the town   of   Dickinson   was  laid  waste, and five people killed.    The  towns of Alvin,   Altaloma,  Texas  Cifcy and Brookshire are  wrecked  and hundreds are destitute.    Richmond is so badly demolished that  it will  require weeks to clear the  town.    Missouri City and Stafford,  just opposite, were entirely demolished and the few remaining people  at these places have  no homes  to  cover their  heads.

Patton,  Rollover, Bolivarpoint,  Quintana, Sug-  arland, Belleville,  Wharton, Fair-  view, Missouri City,  Sar tar ia, Ar-  cola and El Campo are all reported  heavy sufferers, both in point of  property destroyed and  lives lost.  Galveston, Texas, September 12.  ���A summary of the conditions prevailing at Galveston is more   than  human     intellect      can      master.  Briefly stated, the damage to property is anywhere between $15,000.-  000 and $20,000,000.    The   loss of  life cannot be computed.   No lists  could   be   kept,   and   all   is   simply   guesswork.      -Those   thrown  overboard   afc     sea    and     buried  in   the   ground    wherever    found  will reach at least 3000 souls.     My  estimate of the loss on   the   island  city of Galveston, and tbe immediate surrounding district is between  4000 and  5000 deaths.     I do not  make this statement in fright   or  extreme.      The   whole story will  never be told because it cannot be  told.     Not a single individual escaped property loss.    The property  of the island is   wrecked.     Fully  one-half totally swept out of existence altogether.

J  8  ��he ��rtbrote*  I'!  The ghost of   the   489   will  not  down.   Afc the meeting of the Conservative Association, held onTttes-  .   day night, one of the leading members admitted the association's part  in the attempt to disfranchise 489  ^electors lasfc Juue, who had the attempt   been successful would not  have had the privilege   of   casting  their votes at the coming Federal  election.      On the admission being  made, the majority of fchose present  declared that the association could  no longer represent the Conservatives of Nelson, and tbe Macdonald-  Elliofc-Bowes-Lennox   crowd   were  turned down by the passage   of  a  resolution that took the election of  delegates to the Revelstoke convention   out   of  the   hands    of    the  association and placed the power  were    it    rightfully    belongs,   in  the   hands    of   the   people   who  are   expected   to   cast their votes  for the party at the polls.     Tricks  ters   and   their    unfair  should always be repudiated.  The sale of  the  Yellow Jacket  group of claims to eastern capitalists, which is reported   from   Spokane, will be noted   with   satisfaction by a  number of Nelson men  who have claims   in the Waterloo  and Champion Creek camps.     This  section of country was first prospected over   for   mineral   bearing  ledges in 1895, during - the   excitement occasioned by the Trail creek  boom.    It was then found to be a  district of large ledges  of pyritic  iron,   carrying    gold   and   copper  values, but they were nofc sufficient  to retain interest, and for several  years the   district  remained   dormant, save for the performance of  necessary assessment   work.      The  men who have become interested in  the Yellow Jacket, in the Waterloo  camp, are said to have plenty   of  money,     and      to      be      willing  to spend ifc upon likely showings, so  that the worth of that camp will  soon   be   demonstrated.   Nor   are  the signs wanting that Champion  creek will shortly come to the front  again.   During the present summer  some free-milling gold ledges have  been" uncovered, notably upon the  Jeff Davis group, from which most  encouraging assays have been received, and as a result Champion  creek is once more   receiving attention.        ,   -  Lord Minto will retain a lively  recollection       of      Nelson       and  its musical organizations.   In taking his departure from the Hotel ���  Phair he   got sandwiched   in between the Rocky Mountain Ranger's  band   and   that   of the Salvation  Army, and from the hotel to the  wharf was enfiladed with patriotic  airs.   There   were'   no   wearisome  waits.   The "Rockies" started out  with "Tommy Atkins;" in a minute  later the Army organization was  blowing out "The Red White and  Blue," and from this on it was a  case of catch-as-catch-can, the military tunes telescoping one another  in   bewildering   succession.     "The  Soldiers of the Queen" was put to  rout by "Marching Through Geor-  gia,--and-it-in-turn-gave-way-to-the_  frontal attack of the symbols in the  hands of the local Boxers of Chinatown.  and states that he has a 12-foot  vein of the same sort of stuff. It  is shipping ore. He is agitating  now for a trail up the valley. A  good trail would cost about $1000,  but if the government will give  half that amount lie and his partners will see that the main trail is  built.  It is expected that work on the  Ruth No. 2 will be restarted in a  few days. A good find of ore is  reported on the property, but ifc is  known only to one man who is  anxious to sell the company his  information.  The Lardo season will soon be  over and ifc can, without exaggeration, be said to have been a most  successful one. A line of railway  is needed to make the region one of  the greatest in the world.

OOBBETT-M'COY FIGHT   A  FAKE.  Mrs. Norman Selby, wife of "Kid"  McCoy, in a application for divorce  from her husband, confirms by affidavit the statement made recently  by Mrs. James J. Corbett that the  light between Corbett and McCoy,  which took place on August 30th,  last, was a fake. Mrs. McCoy  charged her husband with having  sold out his friends in the fight, and  in her affidavit says :  "Recently my husband, Norman  Selby, has become possessed of a  large sum of money, amounting to  $100,000 in cash, and secured in the  following manner: As a professional prize-fighter my husband entered into a conspiracy in which a  contest was. to take place betweeu  him and one James J. Corbett, it  being prearranged that he was not  to try to win said contest, but permit himself to be defeated; that the  day set for the said professional  contest was August 30th, 1900.  "Before the said date, my husband entered into an agreement  with one Eddie Burke and one Harry  Heinds, the former a well-known  bookmaker, and the latter a proprietor of a gambling house in  Cheyenne in the state of Wyoming,  whereby the said Burke and Heinds  were to procure all the money they  could throughout the United States  wherever able to make bets, to the  effect that the same James J.

"That in order fco secure themselves against the duplicity of my  husband, and as security that he  would fulfill his part of the conspiracy, said Eddie Burke and Harry  "Heinds^insisted^tha^my^husband^  deposit a certain amount of money  with said Burke ; and said Norman  Selby, otherwise known as' 'Kid  McCoy,' did thereupon take from  his vault in the New Amsterdam  bank safety vaults, Canadian Pacific  railway securities to the amount of  $10,000, which the said plaintiff  then owned, and did deposit the  same with the said Eddie Burke."

IN   THE   PUBLIC   EYE.  Christian De Wet, the famous  leader of the Boers, according to  the Sfc. James Gazette, was a wrangler at Cambridge and is said to  have gained golden opinions from  all during his university career.  The sultan of Turkey has gone in  for motoring, and is so pleased with  his particular machine that he has  conferred a decoration on the manager of the German works at which  it was constructed.  Colonel James D. C. Lee, the  assistant quartermaster-general,  who, under the age regulation, has  just been retired from the army,  was a native of Canada, but came  to United State while quite a boy  and was a captain of volunteers in  the war of the rebellion.  Field marshal count Blumenthal,  the distinguished chief of the late  emperor Frederick's general staff  during the Austrian and French  wars, celebrated his ninetieth birthday on July 29th. He and the king  of Saxony are the only officers of  the German army of exalted rank  still alive of those who took part in  the Franco-German war.  Dr. Garcia Merou, who recently  returned to his South American  home after a term as the Argentine  minister in Washington, has published a book of 500 pages of Spanish on the United States entitled  "Estudios Americanos." It is of an  inclusive nature, the chapters con-  -sidei'ing-aluiost^eveEy-fcopic^fi'om^a  dissertation upon the municipal  government to a serious study of  the "summer girl."  Lo Feng Lu, the Chinese minister  at London, is a man of more than  ordinary literary attainments. He  has translated Blackstone's commentaries into Chinese, and only a  few months since -finished the  translation of "The One Hundred  Greatest Men in the Western  World"���a work of eight volumes.  He is a Shakespearean, student and  ifc is his ambition to found a public  library in his native city and to  present to it a complete translation  of the English poet's works.

Greenwood, September 12.���Dr.  Jakes, district coroner, proceeded  to Camp McKinney on Monday and  held an inquiry into the circumstances attending the death of Robert Graham,; who was killed in the  Cariboo mine on Sunday. The evidence given .before a jury showed  that deceased was seen to pass the  station at the 200-foot level, having  with him an ore ear containing  steel, and that immediately afterwards car and man were heard to  fall down the shaft. It appears as  if deceased neglected to fasten the  c-tr to the cage, and that it ran off  the platform: The shaft not being  timbered all the way, there was  room for the car to leave the cage.  The injuries sustained by the unfortunate man were such that  .death must, have been instantaneous. The skull was broken, one  arm and'one "leg'fractured, aud  other injuries were received as  well. The jury returned a verdict  of accidental death. The body has  been takento Colville, Washington,  for burial.  Government by Minorities.
