NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING SEPTEMBER 15  J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  EXODUS FROM GALVESTON  AU Anxious to' Get Away.  Galveston, September 14.���The  first  real   attempt to clear away  tho   great   mass   of   debris   piled  along the beach front for a distance  of soveral miles was begun today.  Advertisements   were   printed   in  tlio   News,   which    appeared   this  morning, asking for   hundreds of  men and boys to do this work.   A  multitude   responded.   They were  formed into squads and promptly  put to work with police and deputy  sheriffs in charge.   It is hoped that  a vigorous prosecution of the work  will   lead   to   the   early   recovery  of    bodies    still    in    the   debris.  That    there    are     many     there  is no shadow of doubt.     An Asso-  ciited Press    representative traversed the beach for some distance,  nnd the stench at different points  was absolutely sickening.   Everywhere little groups of men, women  aud children, some of them  poorly  provided with rainment, were  digging iu the ruins of their homes for  what little household property they  could save.   In  many cases those  seeking   their    former    residences  were utterly unable to find a single  remnant of them, so hopeless is the  confusion of timbers and household  furniture.     The  exodus from  the  city was heavy today, and  hundreds   more   who   were   eager   to  leave were unable to secure transportation.  Moro hopeful reports were received today touching the water  supply. Chairman McMasters of  the chamber of commerce has  charge of the water relief work.  The company was serving some of  its customers today. The water  continues to run by gravity pressure. Assurances have been received by the l-ailroads that they  will do all in their power to reopen  communication and their ��� present  plan seems to concentrate,all forces  on the work of reconstruction of  one bridge. Crews are coming down  the Santa Fe railroad from Arkansas  and Sb. Louis with full equipments  to restore the line.  KRUGER IS NOW LOCKED UP  No One Can See Hiin.  ^'-London, September 15.���Accord-  i.p_; to the Lorenzo Marquez correspondent of the Daily-Telegraph, Mr.  Kruger is virtually a prisoner in  the residence of the district governor. This is at the instance of the  British consul, who protested  against Mr. Kruger using Portuguese territory as a base for directing  his executive. The French consul  has been forbidden access to Mr.  Kruger,as have also the latter's own  officials. The district governor has  notified Herr Pott, the Netherlands  consul, that he (Potts), who acted  as the Boer consul_ar_agent_at_Lor__  enzo Marquez, cannot be longer recognized as a representative of the  Transvaal, which is now British  territory. ,  "I have had au interview with  the American attache, who is homeward bound," says the correspondent, "and he is of the opinion that  hostilities may drag on for .a considerable time, as the Boers in their  despair, threaten to fight to the  death. Acting president Scalk-  berger arrived here today (Friday),  to confer with Mr. Kruger, but he  was not permitted to see him and  he returned immediately to the  Transvaal." ���  Trio of Murderers Lynched.  St. Louis, September 14.���A special to the Post Dispatch from  Memphis, Tennessee, says a masked  mob of between sixty and one hundred men broke into the jail at  Tunica, Mississippi, early today  and took out three negroes, whom  they strung'up to a tree within 100  yards of the jail. Not a shot was  fired. The dead negroes are Frank  Brown, who shot Frank Cheshire, a  prosperous planter at Oak Landing;  David Moore, who shot Dan Bosell  ten days ago, and William Brown,  who with confederates shot young  Whiteman at the state levee last  month.      '  Troubles With Cotton Operatives.  Manchester, September 14.���The  general opinion is that the spinners  will stop universally during the  first fortnight in October.' Some  producers are having recourse to  Egyptian and Peruvian cotton to  complete their contracts. Mr. Maw-  desley, leader of the operatives'  union, is still disinclined to take a  gloomy view of the situation. He  thinks that the demand for cotton  goods throughout the world is good  and that the crisis has reached its  height. In his opinion with the  arrival of the new crop the trouble  will diminish and bo over before  winter sets in. Ho declares that  the federation proposal of stoppage  could not be adhered to on an  organized scale.  BIG CONSOLIDATION SCHEME  Miner's Interesting Prediction.  Montreal, September 14.���S. SS.  C. Miner, president of tiie Miner-  Graves syndicate of mining and  smelting properties, has arrived  home from the west and made some  highly important announcements.  Within tbe next six months the  Knob Hill, Old Ironsides, the Grey  Eagle and the Granby Consolidated  will be consolidated into one company, with a capital of fifteen or  twenty million dollars.  The next is that following this  consolidation, steps wiil be taken to  build a refinery at or near Grand  Forks, which will save at least 4��  cents in every pound of copper  smelted. The capital required will  be about $1,000,000, and it will probably start within 18 months.  Mr. Minor says that although  their.; furnace, which was started  the'othcr day,, was only calculated  to smelt 25 tons a day, the capacity  is now 200 tons, and when the  second furnace starts next week  the daily capacity of 'the Granby  will be not less than 600 tons. Four  additional furnaces-will be erected  very soon,' for the proposed consolidation will easily supply 2000  tons of ore daily. .  "What is the value of the ore  you are now treating?" Mr. Miner  was asked.  ."I am not at liberty to answer  that question, being in the position  of a business man who does not  care to publish his daily profits to  the world. _ I may say, .however,,  that when ore.reports are published  they will be found eminently satisfactory to our shareholders. We  are not sorting the ore, and there is  a good profit out of ever ton that is  going through the smelter. I will  go further and say that we have  been successful in .demonstrating  the fact that ore as low as $5 can  be treated at a profit."  ANOTHER LE ROI AGGIOENT  Four Miners Injured.  Rossland, September 14.���A  serious accident at the Le Roi mine,  just before midnight last night, resulted in the injury of four men,  Larry McEIvey, Charles Hensley,  Owen Bigland and Mike Sefik, who  were at work in the sinking of the  big shaft, about 60 feet below the  _800-foot_le_vel The_skip-fell-from-  the 300-foot level, and its weight of  several tons gathered terrific momentum in the descent. , It tore  away all obstructions till it reached  the machine bar at the bottom of  the shaft. The four men were imprisoned beneath it, but were  promptly released. Sefik's wounds  were slight. Bigland got an ugly  scalp wound. Hensley had his  collarbone broken, and some of his  fingers were so badly crushed that  they had to be amputated. MeElvy  had a leg broken and may have  suffered internal injuries. His condition is critical.  Benefit for Battered Cyclists.  New Haven, Connecticut, September 14.���The bicycle races at  the Colliseum board track tonight,  which were given for the benefit of  Charles Miller, the six day champion, and Archie 3IcEachran, the  champion of Canada, who were injured in the smashup Tuesday  night, were a success financially.  There were two motor paced races,  one championship and one amateur.  The former was won by McEachren  in 9 3-10 minutes, and the amateur  was won by Frank Cad well of Hartford in 9 minutes 28 2-5 seconds.  The Nuns Were Saved.  New York, September 14.���Rev.  J. F. McCarthy of Newark, N. J.,  assistant pastor of St. Patrick's  Cathedral, today received a special  dispatch from Galveston to the  effect that all of the 24 Newark  nuns, at the Catholic convent of the  Sacred Heart, at that place had  been saved.  MEN WHO MADE SACRIFICES  To Serve Their Country.  Ottawa, September 14.���Private  H.   Cowan   of   the first Canadian  contingent,   recently   invalided to  England,   is   lieutenant   Harry  J.  Cowan of B. Squadron, Manitoba  Dragoons, Portage la Prairie.   He  was through the Paardeberg fight  and   tho   march to   Bloemfontein,  where he was taken ill with enteric  fever and had a close call.     He is  a son of Dr. James Cowan of Portage la Prairie, one of the wealthiest   men   iu   Manitoba   and   the  Northwest.    Captain P. Whimster  and lieutenant Cowan of B. squadron, Manitoba Dragoons, resigned  their commissions to go with the  first Canadian contingent.   Captain  (now sergeant) Whimster was taken  ill before Paardeberg, but managed  to struggle to the finish of Cronje,  when he had a bad relapse and has  had a hard fight to pull through.  Both   Whimster   and   Cowan   are  first-class shots and fine officers.   It  was largely due to their work that  B    Squadron'   of    the    Manitoba  Dragoons    received    the    highest'  marks of any cavalry squadron in  Canada for general efficiency in the  camp of 1897:  Sergeant Brothers of Strathcona's  Horse, who was wounded on Tuesday, was a very successful miner.  He went into the Yukon with the  Northwest Mounted Police, and  after obtaining his, discharge took  up raining. When the call for the  Strathconas came he sold a claim  reputed to be worth $30,000 for  $12,000, and, taking" with him a  young law student in Dawson, now  an officer in- the Strathconas, they  made a rapid trip-out over the ice  to Bennett and thence to Vancouver and Ottawa.. He has a fine record in the Mounted Police.  GENERAL WHEELER RETIRES  Served in Three Wars.  Chicago, September 14.���The official life of a gallant old warrior,  the hero of three wars and a fighter  who fought as gallantly for the  United States during the Spanish-  American war as he did for the  Southern Confederacy in the '00s,  expires this week, when, by reason  of the fact that he has reached the  sixty-fourth . anniversary of his  birth, brigadier-general Joseph  Whealler, who for several months  has been in command of the department of the Lakes with headquarters in Chicago, will be retired from  active service.  "It is a grand record which  "Fighting Joe," as his soldiers loved  to call him, leaves in the war annals  of America. At" the outbreak of  the civil war he threw himself  heart and soul into the cause of his  native~Soutli"and_at~the conclusion"  of hostilities he emerged from the  smoke and din of battle one of the  most conspicuous figures of the  Confederacy. Laying aside his  sword he joined with equal enthusiasm in reconstructing the South and  repairing the waste of war. For a  number of years he represented his  home state of Alabama iu the national congress, and only resigned to  take up the cause of his country at  the outbreak of hostilities with  Spain. By his dash and indefatigable energy he made a new record  for himself during the brief Cuban  campaign and later saw a year's  service in the Philippines.  Six months ago general Wheeler  was appointed to fill a vacancy in  the list of brigadier generals caused  by the promotion of brigadier general Otis to the vacancy in the list  of major-generals, caused by the  statutory retirement of major-  general Merritt. General Wheeler  enjoyed the distinction and honor  of being the first American army  officer to receive such high commission after reaching the voluntary  retiring age.  NELSON LOCAL NEWS.  The rifle association will practice  at the ranges this afternoon. Members may obtain rifles at the armory this morning. The program  for the annual shoot is issued and  makes an inviting list of prizes.  The last addition is the corporation  match in which the prize of a $65  pair of binoculars with $59 in cash  added, will be competed for.  The proposed visit of the Nelson  fire department's   racing  team to  Corbett Denies the Charges.  Queenstown, September 14.���A  representatiAre of- the Associated  Press, on board the Cunard line  steamer Campania, today handed  to James J. Corbett a number of  dispatches relating to the charges  made against him in New York.  He read them and said: "It is  ridiculous to say that my fights  with Sharkey and McCoy were  fakes." Corbett and Marguerite  Cornell, the actress, were booked as  Mr. and Mrs. Martin. Her mother  was with her.  Sp kane will probably be called off  for various reasons. Among others  the Spokane people did not send a  list of the events for wliich Nelson  was eligible and no practices were  held. The time now is almost too  short for the team to get in shape.  BIC BATTLE IN PROCRESS  French Engages the Boers.  London, September 11. ��� Lord  Roberts reports from Machadodorp,  under date of Wednesday, September 12th, that general French was  heavily engaged ,with the Boers in  the hills west of Barberton and  general Hutton had gone to general  French's support.  New York,- September 14.���A  dispatch to the Tribune from London says : Tho flight of president  Kruger .to Lorenzo Marquez may  enable general Botha to open  negotiations -with general Bailor  and bring the war to an end. President Kruger, however, may return  to Kumatipoort; or if he stays at  Lorenzo Marquez Botha may continue the struggle,- dividing his  forces into small .bauds. All conjectures based on Kruger's arrival  in neutral territoiyare premature,  since the door through which he is  reported to have retired from the  Transvaal remains open. If general  French has occupied Barberton and  the British columns, are advancing  toward Kuraatipoort the door may  be closed withirra.week and Botha  released from all. obligation to keep  his burghers in'.tlie field.  The closing scenes of the protracted campaign "tend to illustrate  the truth that; without a" neutral  base the-Boers are helpless. If the  British government had-allowed  president Kl'uger to purchase Dela-'  goa bay when he was anxious to do  so he -vvould not how have," a place  of refuge in the present emergency,  nor would his presence there be a  source of any. uncertainly respecting the possibility of. his return to  the Transvaal. The purchase" of  that neutral .Jhasej; ten years, ago  would probably have prevented "the  outbreak of war, since the Boers  have depended from the outset  upon having the .door open for  their own gold to go out and for  supplies to come in, and also upon  having a bridge for retreat when  they were in the last ditch.  The news, however, is too indecisive to justify premature talk  about a last ditch. Buller is press=  ing on after Botha over the mountains, but has captured abandoned  stores rather than commandoes in  arms, and French is still a long  way from Kumatipoort. .  The official record of the opera-  tions conducted by generals Methuen, Barton ^and Hildyard aud  the generals in the Free State  proves the territories occupied are  swarming with guerillas and discontented Boers who are unwilling  to abandon the struggle. This is  -not-oneoi-the-worst"featnres"bf"the~  situation. Resentments caused by  tho campaign and embittered opposition to British rule will have to  be stamped out by strenuous and  rigorous police work for a long  period.  Nothing New From China.  Washington, D. C, September  14.���There was no developments in  the Chinese negotiations today with  which the public could bo made acquainted, Tho whole matter still  being in tho diplomatic phase, and  therefore not calling for military  orders. The situation has lost  something of the acuteness owing to  the change in the attitude  of the Russian government as  indicated in yesterday's dispatches.  It is stated that the control of the  situation would simply pass from  the state department into general  Chaffee's hands, and it would be  for him, after, conferring with the  other military commanders; to determine when and how and to  what extent the American forces  shall be withdrawn.  TALKINC  Of PEACE  NOW  Li Hung Chang's Views.  London, September 15. ��� "Li  Hung Chang will bo taken on board  a Russian warship at Wu Sung,  and received by Russians at Taku,"  says the Shang-Hai correspondent  of the Morning Post, "and he will  be accompanied by the Chinese  minister of railways."  According to the Shang-Hai- correspondent of the Times, wiring  Wednesday, earl Li ^considers that  the preliminary difficulty of the  negotiations consist in the necessity, which he realizes of denouncing prince Tuan and his accomplices to the throne. He is of the  opinion that it would be advisable  for the allies to take the initiative  by compiling a. list of those  held chiefly responsible, and  by formulating their demands  accordingly. Other Shang-Hai dispatches locate the empress dowager  on September 8th at Hsing- .Chou,  two days march from Tai Yuan Fu.  The Times has advices from Pekin,  dated September 1st, saying that  5000 Russians had arrived there  during the previous three days.  The Paris correspondent' of the  Morning Post says:, ."France and  Russia have agreed to demand the  complete disarmament of China,  including the razing of the Taku  forts and the fortifications and  arsenals elsewhere."  - The Russian legation to Pekin,  according to a Taku special dated  Tuesday, was then preparing to  move to Tien-Tsin or to some other  point, owing to the difficulty of  communicating with the home  authorities.  "'  Hong Kong, September 14.���  Orders have been issued for the  third brigade to proceed to Wei  Hai Wei immediately.  SPEAKERSHIP   CANDIDATES  For the Commons and Senate.  - Ottaava. September. 1.4. ��� Two  names are prominently "mentioned  in connection with the speakership  of the senate and the house of  commons. For the commons, a  French-Canadian will undoubtedly  be selected. There is an unwritten  law that this office shall be filled by  a French-Canadian - and a member  from the English-speaking provinces  alternately.- For two parliaments  in succession the speaker has been  chosen from Ontario, so that the  claims of the French-Canadians cannot be longer ignored. Always assuming that the Laurier government  will be returned, the position of  speaker of the commons will go  either to Raymond Prefontaine,  M. P., or to deputy speaker Brodeur,  with the chances in favor of the  -latter.���As deputy speaketvBrodeur  acquitted himself creditably, and  his qualifications for the office are  undisputed.  For the speakership of the seuate  it seems to be pretty well settled  that senator William Kerr, of Co-  bourg, will be the choice. Senator  Kerr is representative of that element of the Liberal party which  complains that it has not its share  in the government, and which there  is every reason to placate. He is  ossontially one of the old Liberals,  a man whose political record is  spotless, and whose appointment  would be widely appreciated in the  "party. Senator Kerr's great popularity, his calm judgment and name  for strict fairness command him  for the high office whicli he is likely to fill.  NELSON'S   MATTBESS   FACTORY.  * The building on Water street to  be occupied by the Kootenay Wire  Works Manufacturing Company is  practically completed, and the firm  will install their plant next week.  The premises have a floor space of  4500 feet, and the company expect  that business will necessitate an extension to the building next spring.  The firm consists of Joseph W.  Holmes, A. W. Nagle and J. H. Wilkinson. They have acquired the  plant owned by the Trail mattress  works, and this is being supplemented by an extensive shipment  of machinery from Toronto, which  will be to hand shortly. Machines  will also be installed for turning  out grill work and fancy woodwork. When the company com  meuces  operations  next week em  the staff being enlarged from time  to time as necessity demands.  The company will have every  facility for placing a first-class product on the market. A special advantage is obtained over eastern  manufacturers in connection with  the supply of tbe excelsior used for  stuffing mattresses. The best quality of excelsior is obtained from  cottonwood, which is as plentiful  about Nelson as it is scarce in most  parts of Ontario and local manufacturers profit thereby.  A. M. ESLER DIES SUDDENLY  Was Well Known Here.  Word was received in Nelson yesterday of the death of A. M. Esler  of Helena. The death occurred at  Altyn, some 50 miles northwest of  Blackfoot, the nearest station on  the Great Northern. Mr. Esler was  developing a big copper property  on the ceded strip of the Blackfoot  reservation. He organized a company a year ago and had just completed a - big concentrator. Mr.  Esler was known in almost every  mining camp in British Columbia  and th'e western states. He was  one of the earliest operators in the  Nelson district being interested  with A. H. Kelly in the Dandy-  group on Toad mountain, and with'  colonel Topping in the Ollie.  Mr. Esler was a pioneer of Montana and Utah.   He built the first  smelter in Montana, and" was intimately connected with the mineral development of this state and  Idaho.    Mi*. Esler was born in New  York 05 years ago.   He first went-  to Colorado and Utah; and from the  latter  state, went to Bannock in  1864.    He remained there until the  spring, of 1865,. when he returned  to New York city, where in the following winter he organized the old  Legal Tender Mining Company. Returning to Montana in 1866, Mr.  Esler   began- development of the  property of the company at Argenta,  Beaverhead    county, . where    he  erected a smelter.- InT866.Mr. Esler  leased a smelter at- Jefferson_City,  which I was'   afterwards    burned..  Mr.     Esler    then   .operated    for j  some      - time       with ���      varying  success     around     Wickes.        He  next went to the Cceur d'AIenes,  where he became interested in a  deal looking to the development of  the   property   purchased . by-. the  Bunker Hill and Sullivan company.  Mr. Esler engineered that deal and  had more to do with the development of the great silver-lead district   than   any other   enterprise.  Mr.   Esler   was long   prominently  connected with the Coeur d'AIenes.  He became interested in the property afterwards secured by the  Helena & Frisco company, a corporation that he helped to organize.   That company was composed  exclusively of  Helena   capitalists,  who made a large amount of money  from   the   mine.       The  company  affcerwardssoldarcontfolling ih"ter~  est to an English syndicate, and  was   recently    consolidated    with  other enterprises.     He  was   long  connected with mining enterprises  in the Rimini district and in other  districts tributary to this city.  RIFLE COMPANY INSPECTED  ���  r . ���    .'   ���   .-Jf  Colonel Benson's Praise. ?$  The annual inspection of. the  Nelson rifle company' passed/'off.  satisfactorily last night.

Tien Tsin, September 12.���Tho  expedition under general Dorward,  against the Boxers threatening the  Tien Tsin region, seized Tu Liu on  the grand canal, without opposition,  and the city was occupied without  a shot beiug fired. Three columns  converged there yesterday, after a  two days march, and found that  the place had already surrendered  to one officer and eight Bengal  lancers. General Dorward ordered  the town burned after it had been  thoroughly looted. The villages en  route made peace offerings and in  most cases were undisturbed. Apparently the Boxers have disbanded  in that region and the whole country is quiet.  The B. E. French! Company.  On Monday the R. E. French  Company will commence a week's  engagement at the opera house.  Since Mr. French last appeared  here he has played in the principal  cities of the west, and comes back  with all the latest eastern successes.

Andrews, of Winnipeg,  in  the course of a recent interview on  the question of public ownership of  public utilities, said:   "The Winnipeg people  are  practically unanimous in favor of the municipalization of all public franchises  within  their   scope,   that   is,   within the  scope   of   tho   municipality.     We  have found that the public ownership of our waterworks has been a  decided    success    financially    aud  every other way.    Unfortunately,  the street railway company have a  long term of their franchise yet to  expire, but steps are being taken  now by the city council to acquire  the electric lighting plant and also  that of the gas company.   Most of  the public work in Winnipeg is carried out on the principle of contract  employment of labor, and although  there are some enemies yet, it has  been found    satisfactory   on   the  whole, and resulting in better work  and at less  cost.   The elimination  of contractors' profit has enabled  the city to pay better wages, and  there is no temptation to scamp the  work."  As to the transportation question,  Mr. Andrews said :   "In my opinion  the transportation question transcends all others of a public nature  in Canada today.     The future of  the west is inseparably bound up  with it, and I believe the extension  of the Intercolonial railway is the  only solution of the difficulty.    The  most popular policy that could be.  inaugurated by any political party  would be the extension of the Intercolonial  to  Georgian - Bay   and  and the building of a line  from  Fort William to Winnipeg by the  people.    -We Canadians have got  into the habit of building railways  and   then     paying     corporations  bonuses   for taking them  off our  hands.   I cannot believe that any  political party would ever commit  themselves to such a suicidal policy  as the handing over of the Intercolonial railway to a corporation.  It would be turning back the clock  of history.   Every candidate in the  ensuing Doininion^electioris should  be obliged not only not to consent  to the sale of the Intercolonial, but  to   insist   on its extension to the  west."   THE   BOXERS.  not that they may enter the athletic arena, bufc that they may engage in a'perfectly lawful and recognized career. They are engaged  as watchmen by wealthy residents,  and as guards by travelers carrying a large amount of money, or to  convoy specie for great distances.  Such a guard or watchman insures  perfect safety, for it places the property or person under the protection of the Ta-Chuan union, and  thieves or malefactors dread arousing its vengeance. Not a single instance is on record where a member  of the Ta-Chuan was faithless to  his trust.  The government recognized the  union, and frequently employed it  to conA'oy treasure. The father of  prince Tuan, aud grandfather of  the heir apparent, is, and has been  for years, the official patron of the  union.  It is evident from  this explanation that   a   member   of   the Ta-  Chauu corresponds   somewhat   to  the modern calling of private detective in our social arrangements.  This is further confirmed, since in  either case men may.be hired for  specific purposes, and not always in  strict conformity to the law.   The  history of. the United States contains instances where corporations,  in fear of depredations by striking  workmen, haA-e engaged a body of  private detectives to repel any attacks upon their plants.   A man in  possession   of   a   well-filled   purse  could, at Pekin, engage any number  of Ta-Chaun members for purposes  which would not bear publicity.  New Placer Excitement.  Seattle,    September    1_.���-The  steamer Eliliu Thompson,  captain  B. P. Whitney,  has arrived from  Nome.    The Thompson brought 196  passengers and had an uneventful  trip, with no serious illness on the  voyage. The amount of gold brought  down Avas not known, but it is said  very   little   was   on   board.     The  Thomson sailed from Nome August  28th,  making the  trip   in twelve  days.    She brought as passengers  many persons avIio were nearly destitute.   At the time sho sailed conditions Avere little changed^ there  beiug about 15,000 people in'camp,  and many of, these in poor Condition for the coming winter.     Great  uneasiness    prevails ' among   the  stranded gold seekers as they see  no prospect of escape from- suffering when cold Aveather sets in.

DEWAR  The   Liberals of  Nanaimo will  ~have a man "of "money, for their  candidate in the approaching  federal election. William Sloan  - enjoys the advantage of being immensely popular, and the possessor  of a well filled sack which he  secured as a pioneer of the Klon-  dyke. A three cornered fight  caused Nanaimo to go Liberal in  1800, but this year the Liberals  consider themselves so well hooked  up that they have no fear from an  even break.  The Kaslo Kootenaian in discussing prospective Conservative candidates for Yale-Cariboo says that  Alexander Lucas will be the Kaslo  nominee before the Revelstoke convention today. Rossland will probably have a quartette of favorites  in O. H. Mackintosh, mayor Goodeve, Dr. Bowes and D. B. Bogle  each of whom it is said; is  willing to serve his party.  From the number of men whose  names have been mentioned in connection with the Conservative nomination for Yale-Cariboo it is evident that the extent of the  constituency has no terrors for the  ambitious politician.  The political contest in Yale-  Cariboo would take a sui'prising  turn should the Conservatives nominate "Harry" Bently of Fernie. It  is doubtful if there are two greater  Writing, of "The Revolution in  China and its causes," R. Van Bergen gives considerable information  as to the Boxers.

By  the term "intelligent" is meant a  man who does not suppose that  every human being must necessarily understand his own language,  but admits the fact that there are  other tongues, and also that, when  he travels or resides in foreign  countries, it becomes him to familiarize himself with such foreign  languages.  Every resident of Pekin employs  a watchman or doorkeeper, and  that person is, in every instance, a  member of the Ta-Chaun (literally,  "Big Fist"); or, as it is  now called, "Boxer," Society.  Properly considered, it is not a secret society, but bears a great resemblance to our labor unions. Its  purpose is mainly benevolent,  namely, to provide for old or disabled members.  The society, of the Boxers is  made up of men whose physical  and muscular strength has been  trained purposely from early.youth,  DEBENTURES  FOR SALE  ���The-City of-NelsonrBrilish-Columbiurhas authorized the issue of debentures for the following  purposes:  $15,000 for extending the Water-  Works System.

Further details regarding the  Arctic expedition of the duke of  Abruzxi, on board the Stella Polaris  whose safe return was reported  from Thomson, Norway, show that  the expedition last year, through  Nightingale sound and the British  canal, reached as far north as 82.4,  but, finding no wintering harbor, it  returned to Teplitz bay, Prince  Rudolph's Land, where the Stella  Polaris was fro/.en in, about September 1st.  The cold increased to 82 degrees,  Celsias. On March 11th, the advance was renewed, and ten men  started north.  After ten days' marching, three  started to return to the ship, which,  however, they never reached. Their  fate is unknown.  A second party of three men  passed the 83rd parallel after a  march of 20 days, and then returned  to the ship.  A third party, led by captain  Cagni, with two Alpine guides and  an Italian sailor, reached latitude  S6.33, and was then obliged to return through lack of food. It  started with 6 sledges and 45 dogs,  and returned with 2 sledges and 7  dogs, having subsisted for 17 days  exclusively on dog flesh.  On August Sth the Stella Polaris  started homeward. She traversed  the British canal in a single day,  and then drifted about for a fortnight in a severe struggle with drift  ice, before reaching the open sea.

The duke is only 27 years old, but  with his yacht Bona he has won  fame already as a daring traveler.  Not long before he started on the  present voyage he climbed Mount  St. Elias in North America, on the  boundary line between Alaska and  British Columbia, a peak deemed  almost inaccessible. His companion on that trip was the Caviliere  Umber to Cagni, a captain in the  royal Italian navy, who was also  his aide-de-camp in the Arctic voyage. His other comrades were Dr.  Cavalli-Mollelli, lieutenant count  Quarani of the navy, a member of  an old Venetian family and a great  linguist; two able-bodied seamen of  the Italian navy, Giacamo Cardenti  and ^Simone Camepa, and four  mountain guides. All the inembers  of the expedition; were supplied  with an Eskimo equipment for the  polar season. The collection of  the scientific instruments and apparatus was large.  The duke planed his own trip and  directed the preparations with  scrupulous care. He left nothing  undone which would help to insure  success. He fully expected to reach  the Pole.  The duke decided to try a different means from that of Nansen, and  in his preparations he took exceeding care to make ready for a long  advance and retreat on terra firma  or the ice. The Stella Polaris carried 20 sleds, each weighing 48i  pounds, and every sled was to carry  eight alluminum boxes packed with  stores and a cauoe. The runners of  the sleds were shod with britannia  metal, and had protective, removable wooden soles.   Forty pairs of  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Street  J. M.

Ff teen hundred oak cases containing clothing, food, scientific materials, two balloons and apparatus for  the manufacture of hydrogen were  included in the ship's stores, the  idea7being_to_iPlant_these���cases.,at-  convenient intervals for the home  coming.            '  No Imprisonment for Women.  Austria is the one country in the  world which never puts a woman in  prison. Instead of giving a female  criminal so many months in jail,  she is sent, no matter how terrible  is her record, to one of the convents  devoted to the purpose, and kept  there during the time for which she  is sentenced. The convent is not a  mere prison in disguise, for its  courtyard stands open all day long,  the only bar to egress being a nun  who acts as portress, just as in  other convents.

In Italy a man has just died  whose passing bell was a relief to  the community. Signor Traversi  was an exemplary citizen, a millionaire���it's easier to bo that in Italy,  with a coin worth only one-fifth ot  a dollar���the father of two esteemed  playwrights. An excellent person  in his way, but the king of all  "kickers."  Traversi's great speciality was  lawsuits.; He turned his back on  his birthplace, Milan, because he  was defeated in a tax suit, aud forbade its name to be mentioned in  his presence. By way of revenge  on the city he retained his box in  La Scala, the famous Milanese opera  house, but kept it ostentatiously  empt3r and closed. When the old  emperor William visited Milan in  1873 the city authorities forcibly  opened the box and assigned it to  some German 'officers, for the performances'in honor of the emperor.  The ertipty box would be an insult;  it was not to be thought of. Traversi sued-the city for damages.  Having won a hardly-contested  case, he had the verdict engraved  on a marble tablet iti the wall of  his country house.  Traversi was just as famous in  Naples, where he had a famous record as a long-winded litigant. The  most famous of all his suits is the  roast beef case. Having ordered  that dish iii a restaurant, he was  told that he. could not be furnished,  as the supply was exhausted'. He  protested that the restaurant was  obliged tosfurnish everything ou  the bill of fare.  Then he went away, and soon returned with a notary and two witnesses, had .documentaly evidence  of the absence of roast beef drawn  up according to law. ' He sued the  restaurateur, and after being defeated in two courts was successful  iu the third. The publican was  fined 25 cents, the price of a portion  of roast beef.  Traversi _left directions that his  funeral should be of the simplest  possible character, and forbade the  announcement of his death. Appro-  piiately jto the memory of such a  man,,Traverses will is to be contested. ��� Hisuheirs- will fight over  his wealth ..as bitterly as he ever  contested'a case in his lifetime.

Tbe London  Free Press has been comparing the  Canadian murder record with that  of the Uuited States in the last  census year. In 1890/7380 persons  were in jail in the United States on  the charge of murder. In 1880 the  population of the United States  was less than 03,000,000 ��� say  eleven times as large as  Canada's population last year.  If the'nuniber of murders in Canada  last year had been as great as the  number in the Uuited States iu  1890, in proportion to population,  we would have had in the Dominion last year 275 persons charged  with murder instead of only 25.  The number of persons charged  with murder iu the United States  iu 1890 was 29 times as large as it  would have been if the number had  been iu proportion to the number  of such cases iu Canada last year.  These figures justify the comment  of the Free Press: "To her sharp,  prompt and sure justice, does not  Canada owe her extraordinary .immunity from violent crime, as compared with the great and equally  enlightened and progressive nation  next door .to us?."

Major Thomas Marchand, the  French soldier aud explorer who is  going to China to join the allied  troops there, is chiefly famous for  the work he did in Egypt two years  ago, which brought France and  Britain to the verge of war. In  Mai'ch, 1897, Marchand left Brazzaville, the capital of the French  Congo, and steamed up the M'bomo  River, hauling his boats over the  mountains between the Nile and  the Congo basins. In July, 1898, he  reached Fashoda, and then hoisted  the French Hag. After lord Kitchener had broken the power .of the  Mahdists at Omdurman, he sought  out Marchand and notified the. explorer that;he was on Egyptian  territory. But Marchand pluckily  refused to budge. There he stayed,  in fact, until his government ordered him to move.  . -t_i:��.S_.S_.S_.^i��iS_.SLS_\:SLSL  Xif  ffl  to  to  Season for Fruits  ^^_^^_3_^_��_a_a_��_S:^..  to  ffl  fi  ffl  ffl]  to  Our pleasure is in supplying the best of ''fruits.
