 ���?--#*-%&i5_SSS!  vmi  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  r"'~3^|  ^'���SS  EIGHTH YEAE.  NELSON:  MONDAY MORNING SEPTEMBER 17 J900;  PRICE FIVE CENTS  <fv  THE BACK DOOR IS CLOSED  Boer Cause is Lost.  New York, September 10.���Isaac  Ford cables this morning's Tribune,  from London, relative to the South  African war situation and political  prospects in England :    "The back  door   leading   to   Delagoa  Bay is  virtually   closed,   tho   Portuguese  officials   have   been   warned from  Lisbon that president Kruger must  not be allowed to carry  on  war  against    the   territories   recently  ��� annexed by Great Britain.    Ho has  temporary reached an asylum, but  the officials from welcoming him  cooly, are now anxious to speed the  parting guest by the  first German  steamer.  The rigorous enforcement  of neutrality, now that Kruger is a  fugitive,   contrasts   strongly with  the /.eal with which the Portuguese  territory was used as a  Boer base  of supplies during the  protracted  campaign.     Neutral   traders   now  perceive that they have lost their  market for munitions of war, aud  are anxious to reopen  the raihvay  to Pretoria, and sell supplies to the  British army.     The sudden change  of attitude is a warning to president Steyn; and other Boers still in  arms that the entrance by the back  door of a political asylum is a privilege not to be abused.'  Refugees cannot come and go as  they like, aud if they are once in-  side'they caunot conduct military  operations against a friendly and  victorious power. The suddenness  with which tho Portuguese officials,  under instructions from Lisbon,  have turned against the Boers, convinces some observers that the purchase of the neutral territory will  be speedily effected by the British  government. This conclusion is  probably premature. The Portuguese will naturally wait to Ond  out what value their East African  ��� pos9essious,will have under the new  conditions of united British- South  Africa. The British government  and Germany have "agreed upon a  liar ti tion of, ��hpse:. territories," as  , soon-as a purchase can be effected.  Geueral French's occupation of  Barberton has deprived the Boers  of anothersiipply depot,aud thereby  reduced them to such convoys aiul  relays as they may have between  Nlel.spruit and Komatipoorfc, and  also at Pilgrim's Rest, the refuge  beyond Lydenberg uot yet captured  by Buller.  Lord Roberts' expression of satisfaction over the capture of rolling  stock, and ��largo droves of cattle  and sheep, reveals the magnitude  of the difficulties with which he  lias been contending in feeding his  army in a country emptied of all  supplies, and without railway facilities or transport. French was as  unsuccessful as Buller "in capturing  long toms, pom-poms and the other  artillery of which the military experts had so much to say last December. Those vanishing guns are  the most mysterious weapons of  __nodern��warfaro.^=If=Koomatipoort=  is reached without any important  capture of Boer artillery there will  be a loud call in. England for the  detention of the prisoners in Ceylon and St. Helena until all the  guns buried in the two Dutch states  arc brought to light. President  Steyn is believed to have as many  as ten at Nelspruit, and Botha  when he resigned command had a  dozen or more, but this is a beggarly show of artillery at the end  of the campaign which opened at  Ladysmith, Colenso and Magersfontein. with Creusots and Krupps  by the score.  The closing scenes of the war  'are watched with a feeling of utter  apathy and indifference in London.  Military comment has ceased, and  with one consent the clubs and  drawingrooms are preoccupied with  the election talk. The liberal  leaderhas finally made an appointment for a speech iu Scotland, late  in this month. His party while  badly demoralized is pulling together for the general elections  under Herbert Gladstone's coaching, but will not waste its resources  by contesting hopeless districts.  Some excellant candidates are coming forward on the Liberal side.  Sir ..Edward Reid is one, and  Anthony Watkins is another.  The government shows no sign  that the elections are close at hand,  but it is not neglecting any opportunity for emphasizing the importance of the battle for the unity of  empire. The arrangements made  for the reception in London of  picked representatives of the body  of volunteers, and their review by  the Queen, are well calculated to  inspire loyalty throughout the  empire.  London, September 17.���Mrs.  Kruger, according to a special dispatch to the Daily Express, has arrived in Lorenzo Marquez.  Tub Hague, September 10.���The  government of the Netherlands has  telegraphed to Lorenzo Marquez,  offering a Dutch warship to bring  Kruger to Holland.  WILL WINTER AT TIEN-TSIN  Looting Will Be Stopped.  Pekin, September 11.���Via Taku,  September 14.���The allied generals  were in conference for four hours  today, the principal topic being  how best to encourage the Chinese  to return to work. It was agreed  that looting should cease, and that  foraging parties should * hereafter  be accompanied by an officer who  should give receipts for all supplies.  The question of wintering at Tien-  Tsin was brought up", with a view  of ascertaining if possible the attitude of the' Russians. General  Liuevitch admitted that most of  his troops would winter there.  At the Japanese legation it is not  believed that the man who claims  to have killed baron von Kettler is  the actual criminal. The Japanese  believe he has been paid to accuse  himself by the Russians, in order to  discredit prince Ching. The Japanese favor prince Ching and the  Russians Li Hung Chang.  Th'e Sixth United States cavalry  will leave-tomorrow for the western  hills, where i.s located the summer  house of the United States legation.  Two thousand Germans under  general Hoepfner have left for Siang  Hsang, a wall city occupied by the  Boxers, who recently attacked a  party of Germans. The city has one  gim. 0  Tien-Tsin, September 15.���Via  Shang-Hai, September 10.���William  Woodville Rockhill, special representative of tbe United States in  China, has left for Pekin. In an  interview before leaving, he said lie  .."did -not expect to .remain-there'  more than a few days. Li Hung  Chang is at Taku on a Russian vessel, it" is not believed he will come  to Tien-Tsin.  London, September 10.���Aspecial  dispatch from Shang-Hai, dated  Friday, September ��� 14, says that  prior to the departure of Li Hung  Chang for the north the new  German minister, Dr. Mumm  Von Schwarzenstein exchanged  views with- the Chinese  statesman. The dispatch adds that  it is reported at Shang-Hai that the  suggestion that a Russian cruiser  escort Li Hung Chang to Taku was  dropped, owing to the objection of  admiral Seymour.  FRENCH SURPRISED THEM  Capture of Barberton.  London,   September   10. ��� Lord  -Roberts=reports-to-the-war-offieer  under date of   Machadodorp, September 15th, as follows:  "French occupied Barberton on  Thursday with the cavalry which  he took across the mountains. He  met slight opposition, the enemy  bein g com pletely surprised. Twenty-  three officers and 59 men who were  prisoners were released, and 43  locomotives and other rolling stock  were captured. The former will  relieve us of great difficulty, as "we  have to put up with a few rickety  engines.  "French reports that he has  sufficient supplies for three weeks  for his force and for a week for his  horses. One hundred Boers with  many Mauser rifles and a quantity  of ammunition were captured.  There are large quantities of cattle  and sheep in the country, which is  good news.  "French intercepted large convoys, showing that Barberton was  used as a depot of supplies for the  Boers in the south and southeast.  The bulk of French's force is still  35 miles behind the cavalry, owing  to the difficulty of getting the  wagons over the pass leading io  Barberton."  McVeity WilL Be Nominated.  . Ottawa, September 15.-r-Friends  of-Miv.Taylor McVeity are determined to place him in nomination  as the Conservative candidate in  opposition to William Hutchison, Liberal member, whether the  executive of the Conservative association are favorable or unfavorable to his candidature.  REVELSTOKE    CONVENTION  Nominates a Candidate.  The convention of the   Liberal-  Conservative party of Yale-Cariboo  constituency called to nominate a  candidate   to   contest the coming  Dominion    election    convened   at  Revelstoke on Friday, with  fifty-  odd delegates present in person. R.  F. Green of Kaslo, by virtue of his  being   the   A'ice-president   of: tho  party   organization   for   the constituency, called the convention to  order, and requested the secretary  of the association at Revelstoke to  read the call convening the convention.   This was followed by the  appointment   of   a committee  on  credentials, made up of C. A: Semlin  of   Ashcroft,    John   Houston   of  Nelson aud Price Ellison of Vernon.  They reported as follows :  Macdonald has decided to leave the  field of provincial politics to take  part in the.larger one that affects  the people of the whole of Canada.

On reassembling at  that hour, the committee reported  as follows:         Platform.  We, the_delegates-of_the-Liberal-  Conservative party of Yale- Cariboo  constituency in convention assembled, re-affirm the principles of the  old party, and more particularly  that cardinal principle, protection  to home industries, and that that  principle be carried out so that all  sections of the country shall equally  share its benefits.  The one industry on which the  prosperity of this constituency is  almost wholly dependent is mining;  and we believe that our mining industries are as fairly entitled to  protection as the manufacturing interests of Eastern Canada; therefore, we advocate that the duties  on lead and lead products be increased, so that they shall be as  high as those now imposed by the  United States on the same articles.  That the output of the precious  metal mines of Canada is largely  increasing, therefore we favor the  establishment of a mint, so that the  specie in circulation shall be that of  our own instead of that of a foreign  country.  .We advocate the restriction of  the immigration of Chinese and  Japanese and all classes of people  who cannot become good citizens of  the Dominion of Canada, and suggest the adoption of the principles  of the Natal Act.  British Columbia has not now  the representation in the federal  parliament that she is entitled to:  therefore we advocate that when  the redistribution of seats is made  that this constituency shall be  given representation according to  its population.  That it augurs "well* for the success of the party that Hugh Johij  The platform was read section by  section and adopted. Nominations  were declared to be in order, and  the following names were presented: A. SI.- McNeill of Rossland,  J. A. Mara of Kamloops, R. F.  Green of Kaslo, and Price Ellison  of Vernon. The three last named  declined in short speeches, all in  favor of Mr. McNeill. He also declined tho - nomination unless time  was given him- to consult his business associates. His request was  granted. A Committee was then  appointd on organization, to report  when the convention' reassembled  to hear Mr. _McNeill's decision, and  an adjournment was .-made until S  o'clock,'on motion of F. Starkey of  Nelson", seconded b3' W. Ei McCandlish of, Nelson; which was carried  after a lengthy-discussion.

London, September 10.���The following dispatch has been received  at tho war office from lord Roberts:  "Machadodorp, Thursday, September 13.���Kruger has fled to Lorenzo Marquez and Botha has been  obliged to give over the command  of the Boer army, temporarily, to  Valjoen, on account of ill health.  In consequence of this I have circulated a proclamation as follows:  " The late president Kruger with  Reitz and the archives of the South  African Republic has crossed the  Portuguese frontier and arrived at  Lorenzo Marques with the view of  sailing for Europe at an early date.  Kruger has formally resigned the  position which he held as president  of the South    African    Republic,  thus severing his official connection  with the Transvaal.   Kruger's action   shows   how   hopeless   in his  opinion is the war which has now  been carried on for nearly a year  and his desertion of the'Boer cause  should make   clear to   his fellow-  burghers that it is useless to continue the struggle any longer.  " 'It is probably unknown to the  inhabitants of the Transvaal aud  the Orange River colony that  nearly 15,000 of their fellow-subjects are now prisoners of war, not  one of whom will be released until  those now under arms against us  surrender unconditionally.  " 'The burghers must be cognizant of the fact that no intervention in their behalf can come from  any of the great powers, and further, that the British empire is determined to complete -the work  which has already cost so many  lives, and carry to a conclusion the  war declared against her by the  late governments of the Transvaal  and the Orange Free State, a war  to which there can be ��� only one  end.'" ;  Lord Roberts' proclamation then  points out that with .the exception  of the small area which general  Botha is'defending the.war, ha's-de-  generated into irregular operations  which must be brought to an early  conclusion, and concludes:  "Tho means 1 am compelled to  adopt are those which the custom  of war prescribe as applicable to  such cases. They are ruinous to  the country, entail endless suffering to the burghers and their families and the longer this guerrilla  warfare continues the more rigorously must they be enforced."  mine owner of Montana, is very ill  at his hotel in this city.

RUSSIA'S  NEW CAMPAIGN  Pushing: Troops Into Manchuria.  Tien-Tsin, September 13.���Via  Shang-Hai, September 15.���The  Russians, it is reported, are rapidly  pushing troops into Manchuria,  where all indications point to extensive operations before winter.  They have suspended work on the  railroad to Pekin, which adds to  the complications. It is believed  their object in this is to compel the  other powers to consent to the  evacuation of Peking  The Tu-Liu expedition has returned to Tien-Tsin, the march was  unopposed, and it is reported that  the Boxers have retired in force to  a village up the Grand canal.  The Americans did not participate  in the burning and looting of Tu  Liu and this caused "considerable  comment among the other commanders. The Sixth cavalry, it' is  reported here, have been ordered to  camp at Yang Tsun," up the Pei Ho,  with a view of strengthening the  line of communications. The regiment will take two heavy guns.

The governor must,  howeyer,_satis_y_-himself��� that���Mr.-  Kruger is really going to Europe,  meanwhile he is instructed to take  precautions to safeguard the personal security of Mr. Kruger.  London, September 10.���Kruger's  millions are the subject of disrespectful paragraphs and long  narratives of dispraise. The lowest  estimate of his wealth is ��1,000,000,  invested abroad, while some calculators figure his wealth at  ��'1,000,000. The Transvaal government is supposed to have ��2,000,000  or ��3,000,000 in continental banks,  which-will be hoarded by tho managing committee, Dr. Leyds says,  for a future rising when England is  in other difficulties.      6  Military experts expect that the  last real battle of the war will bo  fought at Nelspruit and that commandant Niljoen's forces will then  disperse. Their forecasts have been  falsified so often that little importance can bo attached to them, and  it is a fairly safe conclusion that  there will be little except  police work after Komatipoort  has been occupied. The general  elections will not be deferred for  the completion of the police work,  since, unhappily, that is likely to  go on for several years.  Fighting" Among Themselves.

They are apparently  honoring Li Hung Chang and speeding his movements to the north.  There is, however, very little actually fresh news from the far east  this morning of auy public importance.  The Observer argues that the  real master of the situation in  China is sir Robert Hart, whose experience is unique, and who is the  person best qualified to answer if  . the policy of the open door shall be  resolutely maintained.

Dr. Mumm Van Schwarzenstein,  in an interview with Shung, expressed the opinion that although  the powers were averse to the partition of China, any delay in the  negotiations was calculated to produce that result, and that Germany  was prepared to remain in occupation indefinitely pending a satisfactory settlement. Earl Li accordingly telegraphed General Yung Lu  to use every effort to persuade the  _emp_ress_dowager��� and���emperor-to-  return to Pekin and to remove  prince Tuan aud his entourage.  "I learn on trustworthy authority,  writes   this   correspondent,   "that  before   his   departure   Li    Hung  Chang, having been convinced by  his  interviews with Mr.  Rockhill  and Dr. Mumm von Schwarzenstein  that it would be useless  to discuss  any settlement excluding the punishment of   the empress dowager  and her chief advisers, sent a telegraphic memorial to the throne impeaching    prince    Tuan,     prince  Chuang, and Tsai Lin, prince Tuan's  brother, as well as Kwang Yi, president of the war board, and Chao  Shu Chiao,  commissioner of   railway and bureau and political board  of punishment.   Earl Li, being unable to consult the viceroys of Nankin and Woo Chang, inscribed their  names to the memorial, taking their  consent for granted, but it appears  that the Woo Chang viceroy disapproves of the use of his name.  This means a rupture with a large  and influential party.    The staff of  Li Hung Chang includes a son of  marquis Tsing, Yang Tsun  Yi and  Liu  Hsueh  Shung.    The   scene of  embarkation   was  almost squalid.  Shung declined to accompany earl  Li on the plea of illness.     It is  asserted that earl Li endeavored to  obtain from the Shang-Hai authorities 2000 taels, the cost of his recent  telegraphing    to    St.   Petersburg.

McNeill of Rossland,  the nominee to contest Yale-Cari-  -b"oo^Jo_rstitueficy"^  the Liberal-Conservative party, is a  native of Prince Edward Island.  He has lived in this province since  1890, and has resided at Rossland  since 1896. He is a lawyer, and is  building up a good practice. He is  well liked by his friends, and stands  well in Rossland with all classes.  He has not taken an active part in  politics heretofore.   In 1898 he sup  ported James Martin, a Liberal, for  the legislative assembly, as against  John McKane, a Conservative; but  that was because he was an oppon-  ' ent of the then Turner government. Conservatives believe they  have   a   strong   candidate  in Mr.  ���   McNeill.   The Miner is sorely troubled. Its  political sponsers were knocked out  in the first round of the contest between the two parties that are contesting for control of the government of. the Dominion, and it' has  resorted to its old habit of throwing mud at the men who knocked  them out.  The campaign may be said to  be now ou in this constituency, as  the two. parties have named their  candidates. The campaign will be  a clean one, as the character of  neither candidate can be assailed,  and neither Mr. Galliher or Mr.  JtfcNeilL   even were they so  dis  posed, are in a position to corrupt  the electorate with money or  patronage. The only thing that  can be said to the disadvantage of  either is,���they are both lawyers.  RAILROADS AND STEAMERS  C. F. R. Local Improvements.  "The steam shoVel is now at work  on the big bank which is to be dug  out to enlarge the C. P. R. yard.  About 100 cars of material are being moved daily from the yards to  the trestles along the line.   A large  number of citizens visited the scene  of operations yesterday.   The company   is   pushing   the  yard  work  ahead as   rapidly   as   possible   to  accomplish   the   work   while   the  weather  is favorable.    It is  estimated that the steam  shovel will  excavate the bank on which it is  working in a little over two weeks.  The grade on Baker street leading  to the site of the new depot is complete, and improves the neighborhood to a marked degree.    The station ground is levelled off and those  who   take   the   contracts for   the  building will have  every   facility  for doing the work expeditiously.  The C. P. R. men on the casualty  list are doing well. W. Clary who  had a collarbone broken in the  accident below Beasley's hollow,  went on duty yesterday. Howard  Guest who was hurt at the same  time is able to be" . about at the  general hospital and will be out  shortly. Yardmaster Clarence  Ogilvie is up town daily but will  not be on duty for some weeks.   ���  The dearth of power in the local  C. P. R. has been relieved. Locomotive No. 28 was patched up and  is now doing service daily on the  work train. Her smoke chest is  very.much the worse for- the accident in which she figuied,' but  otherwise she is in fair order. No.  368 came in last week from the  main line, and has been put on the  Robson run. A couple of additional engines are expected shortly and  a couple of those now in use will  probably be sent to Revelstoke for  repairs.  The new craft built at Kaslo for  the K. K. & N. Co. is to be launched  today. She is said to be complete  in every particular and her designers predict that she will be faster  than anything yet launched on inland waters. The steamer will connect with the Great Northern trains,  Opera House  J. E. ANNABLE, Manager.  o__r___ -week:  COMMENCING SEPT. 17  MR. R. E. FRENCH  PRESENTS  Russell  & Drew's  Theatre Co.  I_ST   EBPEETOIEE  CHANGE   OF   PLAY NIGHTLY  THE GREAT CHRISTIAN PLAY  QUO - VADIS  MONDAY NIGHT  Patal Collision on E. & N.  Victoria, September 15.���Loaded  and unloaded coal trains collided at  10:30 this morning on the filled-in  trestle on the E. & N. railway, two  miles north of Ladysmith.   Robert  Fisher, manager of the Alexandria  mines; Sam Wharton, engineer, late  of Toronto; Hugh Thompson, fireman, and Henry Saunders, brake-  man,   were   killed,   and   operator  Pelky slightly injured.   The accident was  caused by the through  operator     reporting     that    train  Number 10 was on a siding at Ladysmith,   whereas   it   had   not   arrived,    and     sending     out   train  No. 1 loaded.   Both were   making  time, and when the engineers saw  the approaching trains they were  unable to avert an   accident,   although both reversed their engines.  The fact that both were on the  down grade made it more difficult  to lessen speed.   No. 1 being a light  engine and No.  10 a very heavy  one, the former was   smashed to  pieces   and the crew and Robert  Fisher,   riding   on   her,   were   instantly killed and terribly mangled.  The coal cars were thrown into the  air and piled up into an unrecognizable mass.     A  wrecking  crew  was sent out and the track is to be  cleared' tonight.     Fisher only recently arrived here, and was formerly superintendent of the Crow's  Nest mines.  Uf  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  w  FRED  &  OO.

It is further rumored in the same connection that  the following September 21st will  see parliament dissolved.

The boarding house  and buildings around the No. 1  shaft were also consumed. The loss  is over $3000 and is fully covered  by insurance. Four miners sleeping  on the second floor of the annex  suffered by the smoke and were cut  off from escape by being cut off  from the passage way, but were  fortunately rescued by means of  cutting a hole through the roof,  through which they were lowered*  to the ground.  Canadians May Return Home.  Ottawa, September 16.���A cable  from Mr. Joseph Chamberlain today  says lord Roberts has been instructed that the men of the first contingent not willing to extend their  period of service aro to be returned  to Canada by October 15th. If  there is a large number they will  be sent to Canada direct by special  transport, otherwise, via England  by a transport conveying invalids.  The general impression here is that  nearly all the boys will vote to see  the war through and afterwards  visit England to be received by the  queen. Authority has been given  to grant discharges in South Africa  to Canadians desirous of remaining  through the war.  Prince Henry of Hesse Dead.

A special from Phoenix, Arizona,  speaks of a number of mines that  were, when first operated, considered wildcat schemes, but With the  expenditure of capital and energy-  have proven to be of almost fabulous value. The article is as follows:  "Mining developments have taken  place recently in Arizona' which  ,7 justify the opinion formed by mining men a year ago, when the  copper output was last computed,  that this territory will soon lead in  the copper production of the United  States. The production last year  was valued at about $20,000,000,  aud the increase for this year will  bo notable.  "The United Verde, the greatest  producer of Arizona, intends suspending operations soon, in order  that the plant may be renovated.  The works have been steadily running for seven years, and when the  machinery is repaired and the plant  ' enlarged there will be an important  increase in the output and the pay  roll will be much larger.  "The most important plans for an  0 increase in the copper production  are under consideration by the  Arizona Copper Company and the  Detroit Copper Mining Company of  Clifton and Morenci. The former  company is now turning out about  $3,000,000 worth of copper bullion  annually, of which it is estimated  that $1,400,000 is profit. The Detroit Copper Mining Company,  which is a Phelps, Dodge & Co. concern, is putting out about $2,500,000  in copper bullion, making the combined output of the one district al  ls now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  most as great as that of the United  Verde. The size of both plants will  be greatly increased, and it is gen-,  erally believed that in a short time  the copper output of the noted  United Verde district will be exceeded by that of the Morenci mines.

Hay, Inspector.  pauies are working in the same deposit near Morenci, and in the heart  of the holdings C. IVL Shannon of  Clifton owns several claims which  he recently bonded to the Thompson Investment Company of Butte,  Montana. Under the option that  compauy has made some important  developments, and, when the lease  expires in April the mines will probably be transferred at a good  figure. Negotiations are being  made for a 100-ton water jacket  and a concentrator, to be put on the  San Francisco river at Clifton, for  treating the ores of the Shannon  mine.  "Most of the successful copper  mines of the Morenci district represent wildcat undertakings. The  present holdings of the Arizona  Copper Company were located by a  company which engaged in a wildcat business, and when it was accidentally discovered that the locations were valuable they were taken  up by a Scotch stock company,  fourteen years ago. The mines  were operated at a loss until five  years ago, up to which time the  output was inconsiderable. A  leaching plant was then put in, and  under a competent management the  output has been increasing steadily  and the mines were put on a paying  basis. The plant is handling 800  tons of ore daily, of which 200 tons,  running as low as __��� pei cent, are  being treated profitably by the  leaching plant.  "A year ago a wildcat company  located a number of claims which  were cut by a baby-guage railroad  running from Clifton to MorencL  They had been gone over by pros-  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Stroet  J. M. LAY, Manager.  pectors for twenty years, and the  locations were regarded as valueless. In a short time great deposits  of copper were revealed. The  Media Copper Company purchased  the claims at a large figure, and  thousands of tons of rich copper  have been blocked out sinee.__LThat  more or less mineral through the  entire width of the breast. Mr.  Collom, who has a bond on the  group, is personally, overseeing the  development and he;is well pleased'  with the outlook.  Tne Hoodoo Sold.  company also contemplates putting  in a smelter on the San Francisco  river. and making other improvements.  "The Detroit Copper Mining Company, in two or three months, will  complete a narrow-gauge railroad  from Guthrie, on the Arizona and  New Mexico line, to its mines at  Morenci, which will obviate the  necessity of transporting its supplies and machinery over the Arizona Copper Company's line to Clifton, and thence by the baby-gauge  to Morenci."  Developing the Speculator. -'  Development ou the Speculator  is being pushed, between '60 and 40  men being employed. Considerable  surface work is being done, in prospecting and tracing the main lead.  Two or three other veins have been  uncovered and each shows ore. On  the main vein a paystreak of 18  inches of fine ore is  exposed,  with  St. JOSEPH'S SCHOOL  NELSON, B.C. .  A boarding and day school conducted by the  Sisters of: St. Joseph of Peace.
