 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  TUESDAY MORNING SEPTEMBER 18 1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  IS  CHINA _ABLE  TO   PAY  Demands Will be Heavy.  Paris, September 15.���The un-  sitisfactory condition of the cipher  messages which reach tlio powers  IVoin their representatives in China,  especially at Pekin, has brought  forward prominently the suggestion  of an international conference at  some European capital. A point  . which gives additional weight to  tiie plan is the appreciation of the  difficulty of reaching amicable results among the ministers at Pekin,  many of whom have been antagonistic   in  their policy during their  stay there during the last few  years. Could they obtain a direct  and quick communication with the  home governments, the tangles  'would be straightened out, Tout  under the present conditions, this  seems to be impossible. An argument advanced against the proposed conference is the difficulty of  the powers being represented by  men fully conversant with all the  latest phases of tho far eastern  question. Some of the details which  will be urged in connection with  tho peace terms are discussed in  diplomatic circles here. One point  strongly urged on the part of  Prance, is the permanent continuance of the international agreement now in force, prohibiting the  exportation of arms to China. This  is believed to be a strong measure  of precaution against a recurrence  qf the determined assaults on  foreigners.  A demand is also made for a reduction of the Chinese forces holding Taku and "Woo-Sung, which are  tho main coast defences, respectively, of Peking and Shang-Hai, in  order to keep open a more secure  route to these cities. The question  of indemnity, and how it will be  paid, is a serious problem. The indemnities arc divided into three  classes, those payable to the states,  to the societies, and to individuals.  The amount which the various  states will demand will reach an  enormous sum, and the ability of  China to meet them solely with  cash payments, causes concern.  Great Britain's indemnity, it is  believed, will not be less than  00,000,000 francs, while Russia',' will not be far below  this. France's indemnity will  be in tho neighborhood of 30,000,-  000 francs, and that of tho United  States, it is thought, will not be so  large, on account of most of the  American troops going from the  Philippine Islands. In order to  meet these great claims, it is possible that some reforms in the internal administration of China may be  -necessary, though their nature is  not yet considered.  It is said that Russia has not  heard from M. de Giers, her minister at Pekin, for some days, and  ; the messages of M. Pichon, the  French minister at the Chinese  capital, are also delayed, thus not  jjermjttingjtlie goy.ernnient__to_,gain^  any" new knowledge in regard to  the evacuation  terms,  which   are  -left to these officials. It is asserted  here that France and Russia are"  acting in perfect harmony, and  that they will certainly remain in  accord in their negotiations for  peace.   FATAL EXPLOSION IN CHINA  Blows Up,a Fatigue Party.  London, September 17.���The  British commander at Taku, engaged in destroying gun powder at  Tung Chow, was blown up. Eleven  Welsh fusileers were wounded, two  British-Indian soldiers were killed,  and thirteen British-Indian soldiers  were wounded, and captain Hill and  eleven British-Chinese infantry soldiers were wounded.  High Priced Ocean Trip.  London, September 17.���Probably the greatest amount ever paid  by a family party for passage on an  Atlantic liner is the ��1600 ($8000)  put up by Andrew Carnegie tor the  passage of his party of seventeen  ou the Deutschland from Southampton to New York. The Deuts-  chland's first cabin passenger list  on her next voyage to New York  brings more than ��10,000. An  American, with his wife, sister and  three servants are paying $2000 for  their passage. Another American  is paying ��250 for himself and  wife. So great is the demand for  cabins on the new German record-  breaker that all the officers' rooms  are booked. The Deutschland is  being pushed to the utmost. She  will make six trips across the Atlantic this fall in two months. If  the hope of the North German  Lloyd line is realized the reign of  tho new queen of tho transatlantic  fleet will be a short one, for the  builders of the Kaiser AVilholmder  Grossc bolieve their next ship will  eclipse tho Deutschland, as the  Hamburg-American liner has  eclipsed the Kaiser AVilheltn.  Ll HUNG CHANG WINS OUT  Is Accepted by the Powers.  London, September 18.���There is  no additional news from Chiua this  morning. The Daily Graphic asserts that all the powers have accepted Li Hung Chang, and will  probably also accept prince: Ching  as negotiator. It says also that  the powers'-- have agreed to insist  that a central government satisfactory to the powers, shall be established in Cliina, and that full  retribution shall be exacted for the  attacks  upon  the   legations.      No  communications, however, have yet  passed between the powers concerning indemnities, aud a Berlin dispatch says it is believed there that  Dr. Mumm von Schwarzenstein, the  German, minister, will purposely  delay negotiations until Marshall  von Waldersee has arrived.  Dr. Morrison, tho Pekin correspondent of the Tinies, in the course  of a long dispatch, dated September  (j, continues to protest against the  evacuation of the capital, but he  agrees Avith the Pekin correspondent of the Morning Post that the  withdrawal of the Russian troops,  owing to tlieir barbarous habits,  would be a benefit. He asserts  that further convincing proofs have  been obtained that it was the intention of the empress dowager to.  massacre all the foreigners. Prince  Ching, he says, fails to realize the  real situation, evidently being convinced that all the. powers can be  squared by ��� the payment of ' a  money indemnity.  DON'T LIKE  THE ORDERS  Given to Paul Kruger.  Berlin, September 17. ��� The  Vossisch Zeitung points out that  the singular order given by the  Portuguese government to the  governor of Mozambique authorizing the departure of Mr. Kruger  for Europe, permits Mr. Kruger to  sail only for an European port,  adding : " The government in so  doing goes beyond its powers.  Doubtless Lisbon is acting  under pressure from Great Britaiu,  whicli fears presumably that Mr.  Kruger   is   going   to   the   United  States."  London, September 17.���-F. W.  _Reitz,=state-seei'etar-y=o��=*the=abro���  gated South African republic, is  going to Paris, according to the  Pretoria correspondent of the Daily  Mail, from which point he will proceed to the United States, where he  will probably remain.  Insurrection Nipped in the Bud.  San Diego, California, September  17.���The steamer Herodot brings  the story of a quick suppression of  an incipient insurrection at Salvador. The minister of war, Castro,  was1 the' instigator of a plot to remove the prisoner, Thomas Rega-  lado, aud have himself proclaimed  president of the republic. In his  plans to bring about the insurrection, Castro deemed it necessary to  remove the colonel of the barracks,  and shot him down in cold blood.  It was not known until after Ins  arrest for that crime that the murder was a political plot to overthrow the present government, but  in tbe investigation that followed  the whole scheme .was unearthed.  Castro was found guilty of murder  and on September 3rd he was shot  by order of the president. With  the death of the leader the threatened insurrection subsided.  Patterson After the Nomination.  Windsor, September 17.���If the  Conservatives of North Essex can  get Sol White out of the way, who  at present is persistent in his intention to contest that riding, Hon. J.  C. Patterson, retiring lieutenant-  governor of Manitoba, will be tendered the nomination. William  McGregor is the present Liberal  member of this riding and will probably run again.  STRIKERS ARE CONFIDENT  Besponse Exceeded Expectations.  Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,  September 17.���The great strike of  mine workers in the anthracite coal  fields of Pennsylvania, which represents practically the hard coal output of the world began today, according to president Mitchell, of  the United Mine Workers of  America, who is personally directing the strike from his headquarters  at Hazelton. The strike of the  previous four days' effort to tie the  mines, exceeded the expectation  of the strike leaders.  The hard coal region is divided  into four great districts,. Lackawanna, Wyoming, Lehigh and  Schuylkill. regions. In the first  two, representing nearly ninety  thousand men, the tie-up is practically complete, only One mine^ employing a few hundred men, being  operated, and this the strikers say  they hope to close soon. In the  Lehigh region the situation is a  standoff, about S000 of the 10,000  mine emplojrees having quit work.  Principally because the union has  comparatively little strength in the  Schuylkill region and the workmen  there have no decided grievance as  ,iu-. other districts, the strike was  not general among the 50,000 men  employed. ��.  The indications tonight, however,  point to the closing of some mines  in the last named district that operated today, despite the assertions  of officials of the Pennsylvania cfc  Reading Coal & Iron Company aud  other companies operating iu the  region that they will continue their  collieries in operation.  Vice grand master Fitzpatrick of  the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen addressed a secret meeting of  railroaders at Parsons yesterday.  After the address a lodge of trainmen was organized. Mr. Fitzpatrick will oi'gauize other lodges iu  the district in the next few days.  The leaders of the Miners' Union  aro confident that if the coal carrying roads attempt to carry bituminous coal into the anthracite region during the strike the railroaders will stand by them. Mr. Fitzpatrick refused to say whether the  brotherhood men would go out on  a strike in case the railroads shipped soft coal into the Wyoming  valley. He said his mission here  was to organize new lodges aud  strengthen those that needed  strengthening.  More Mills Close.  ' Manchester, September 17.���  Several more mills closed today.  The operators agreed that they  cannot work profitably with cotton at the present prices. Great  interest is felt in the result of the  vote now being taken by the employers' federation, with reference  to the closing of the mills for twelve  days in October. The outcome  will be announced at Friday's  meeting. An effort is being\jnade  =to^stop^all=^ill_~including���those  stocked with cotton.  Manchester, September 17.���  The Manchester Textile Mercury  estimates that the minimum average of stoppage for the mills will  be eight weeks, although the period  may be longer, and that the losses,  including the wages of 100,000  workers, will be ��25,000,000. These  losses are attributed to the failure  of nature to supply sufficient raw  material. The English manufacturer is totally dependent upon a  circumscribed area of foreign supply, and those who provide this  supply are now straining every  nerve to consume the production at  home, thus becoming formidable competitors of England.  "These competitors," says the Mercury, "are the most formidable who  could possibly enter the markets of  the world against us. The remedy  for the future is the cultivation of  cotton within the realm of Great  Britain. At the same time a  month's suspension of buying will  partially restrict the scramble for  the remnants of the last crop, only  purchaseable at extremely high  prices, to come out of the pockets  of the manufacturers, but which  could never be exorted from the  merchants of the distributing side  of the trade."  The Duke's Australian Trip.  London, September 17.���The Colonial office, in announcing the contemplated visit of the duke and  duchess of York to Australia, says:  "Although her majesty naturally  shrinks from parting with her  grandson for so long, a period, the  queen fully recognizes the great  ness of the occasion which will  bring her Australian colonies into  federal union, and desires to give  this special proof of her interest in  all that concerns the interests of  her Australian subjects. Her  majesty wishes at the same time to  signify hor sense of tho loyalty and  devotion which prompted the spontaneous aid so liberally offered by  all the colonies in the South African war, and of the splendid gallantry of the colonial troops."  MINERS' STRIKE MAY FAIL  Unions' Order Net Obeyed.  Hazelton, Pennsylvania, September 17.���The great struggle between the anthracite coal miners of  Pennsylvania and their employers  was begun today, with each side  confident of winning and neither  of them show any disposition to  yield. With the. exception of "a  trivial incident at No. 3 colliery of  the Lehigh Coal Company, where a  gang of boys compelled a mule  driver to seek coyer by throwing  stones at him, the contest thus ftir  has been entirely devoid of violence  of any kind.  The exact number of men who  struck cannot at this time be told,  as only estimates,of the number of  men who did not start work were  made today. - Reports received by  the United Mine-workers' officials  from the entire anthracite ,region  were, to them, most satisfactory.  In this territory, known as district  No. 7, there are 10,000 men in and  about the mines. . Of this number  it is conservatively estimated today  about 50 per cent or, S000 miners,  obeyed the order of' president  Mitchell to quit work. Five thousand of these belong to colleries  which did not work at all, and the  remaining three thousand to mines  whicli worked short handed.  The district south 'of this place,  known as the south -side, was tied  up completely with the exception  of Coleraine, Beaver Meadow and  Carson: washeries.'-*'. The amines at  Lattimer and Pond" creek, employing 1400 men, are working with  badly crippled forces. Three of  the Markle mines, over which there  has been so much contention,  worked all day with about 05 per  cent of their men. On the west  side every colliery started up today  minus its union men, except at the  Hazel mines where the union miners  went to work iu consequence of a  misunderstanding.  Will Complete in Six Months.  Grand Forks, September 17.���  The survey party for the proposed  railway from Grand Forks to Republic is now in the .field and rushing the work ahead as fast as  possible. John A. Manly, the chief  engineer, says the route being laid  out is a most satisfactory one and  presents no especial engineering  difficulties. It has not yet been  definitely decided which side of the  =iaver���the^road^will^folIoWr^bllt^  within a couple of weeks the selection will be made "and then the  grade stokes will be set, after  which the work of construction  will be commenced aud rushed to  completion, The promoters expect  to have dirt flying on the road  within a few weeks and the line  laid from Grand Forks to its Republic terminus inside the next six  months.    7.  '  Political Pointers.  Belleville, Ontario, September  17.���The Prohibitionists of West  Hastings have decided to bring out  a candidate in opposition to Henry  Corby, Conservative M. P., unless  the Liberals choose a candidate  acceptable to them.  Alliston, Ontario, September 17.  ���Th_ Liberals of South Simcoe  have nominated Joseph Whiteside  of Elmgrove, to contest the riding  iu their interest at the forthcoming  general election.  Hamilton, Ontario, September.���  17.���It is generally expected that  the Conservative candidate for the  approaching election will be Messrs.  Samuel Barker and F. C. Bruce.

Difficulty Satisfactorily Adjusted,  Fort Meyere, Florida, September 17.���A runner from Seminole  camp, at Turle mountain, reports  that in a big sun dance last week  four Seminole braves bad a bloody  fight, all being aspirants for the  chief's daughter. All four were  killed. The girl then drowned herself from grief for one of the dead  braves.  WILL REPAIR THE OLD DAM  o-     ^__,__  Work to Commence Today.  The electric light power question  was settled at the city council last  night, when the members authorized tho city engineer to proceed at  once with repairs to the present  dam.  Mayor Houston reported that B.  C. Riblet had gone over the ground  at the electric light power dam and  recommended that the present dam  be rebuilt, and tho reservoir cleaned  out to the level of the intake. Mr.  Riblet was opposed to going further up the creek On the ground  that the cost would be very much  greater, and the increase of power  slight.  It was pointed out that this  scheme would give a storage capacity sufficient to operate the plant  for eight hours without figuring on  the flow of the stream,which  would easily keep the plant running to its full capacity for the balance of the winter days. The  aldermen approved of the idea  unanimously, and on motion of  aldermen Hall and Arthur it'was  resolved to have the work commenced without delay.  The board of works submitted a  report making three recommendations, as follows: That a footpath  be graded on the east side of Cedar  street from Victoria to Silica  streets; that the water main be extended to connect with E. C.  Traves' house, corner of Hall and  Observatory streets; that the surface drain in block 25 be extended  50 feet. The report was adopted.  The finance committee recommended the"payment of a budget  of accounts, and that a trophy be  granted for the local militia company's shoot on October 0, cost of  such prize not to exceed $25. The  report was adopted.  Aldermen Irvine and Wilson  moved that the ten foot-sidewalk  on the north side of Vernon street  be extended to Ward and Hall  streets.   Carried.,  ��� Aldermen Irvine and Hall moved  that Hendryx street be opened up to  Front street to permit the mattress  works to haul machinery to their  factory.    Carried.  AV. P. Harvey and SI. Mansfield  complained of the odor arising from  burning rubbish and the city  stables generally. Alderman  Irvine moved, seconded by alderman AVilson, that the scavengers  be instructed to haul rubbish further ui) the hill.    Carried.  The secretary of the provincial  underwriters' association wrote regarding the matter of guard wires  for tho tramway system. The letter  letter written by M. F. Carey,  superintendent of the tramway  lino, was, he . stated, forwarded to  the Canadian association's expert  at Toronto dieted a reply stating  that experience had developed the  fact that contiliuous guard wires  increased the hazard as eMjned_by\  =Mrr=Gareyr^TlTe^prMtiee='how iil^  sisted upon was a system of dead  insulated guard wires erected in  short sections at all important  crossings of other electric systems,  and it was requested that this be  referred to Mr. Carey. The letter  will be forwarded to the tramway  company.  The bylaw relating to licenses for  hawkers, pedlers and transient  traders was finally reconsidered  and passed.  The members in attendance were,  mayor Houston, aldermen Hall,  Morrison, Irvine, Arthur and  AVilson.   Bather Bad Burglars.  Siia.mok'IN, Pennsylvania, September 17.���Two burglars broke  into the home of Airs. Lena Kress,  at Big Mountain, near hero today,  and upon the woman's refusal" to  give them money tliey crushed in  her skull and clubbed her daughter, Mrs. Mary Marcinak, so badly  it is feared she will die.

They came here on a  business visit, and when they applied for return passage wore told  that they must be treated as immigrants. This they refused to do  and are now waiting an answer  from the inspector.  RUSSIAU TROOPS REPULSED  At the Pei Tang Forts.

It appears that British  troops have begun an attack upon  a Chinese camp in the vicinity of  Shang-Hai. Marshal von AValder-  see's agent has rented quarters for  him at Shang-Hai.  A further dispatch to the same  journal, dated September 10th  says: "A third Russian attack  upon the Pei Tang' forts (north of  Taku) was repulsed." Officers of  the British battleship Centurion  assert that while the Wii Sung  forts.were preparing 'yesterday for  action, the Centurion signalled the  German fleet which prepared the  cruiser Schwalbe for going to Hankow, if necessary.  The Shang-Hai correspondent of  the Lokal Anzeiger, wiring today,  says: "Troops in large numbers  are gathering from all parts of  China at Siau Fu, which has been  chosen as the permanent residences  of the imperials. The secretary of  the German legation has refused to  begin negotiations with prince  Ching, saying that Dr. Mumm von  Schwartzenstein is alone officially  qualified for such functions."  MANY CHILDREN SUFFOCATE  In Salvation Army Nursery.  " CiNc3iNNATi,'Ohio, September 17.���  An old four story tenement building at 103 East Front street, used  as the branch nursery of the Salvation Army, burned this evening,  aud its occupants were so imprisoned that many were suffocated  to death and many others were  seriously injured. On account of  the cold weather today a fire had  been started in the stove for the  little tots during the  day, while  their mothers were absent, engaged  in work elsewhere. It is thought  that this caused the fire through  some defect in the flue. The fire  occurred near the river front, the  most densely populated quarter of  the city.

Montreal, September 17.���It is  likely that the coming election will  seo the disappearance of sir Adolphe  Caron from political life. He is at  present sitting for Three Rivers,  but the Conservatives there want a  local man, sir Adolpbe Caron's predecessor having been sir Hector  Langevin for seventeen years, and  they have nominated Mr. P. E. Pan-  neton, a local banker.  Politics Displaces War.  London, September 17.���For the  moment, dissolution is a more attractive theme than China.

Business men who have the reputation  of   the town at heart   should be  very careful in making  statements  wheu being interviewed by anyone  connected with the Miner, a newspaper that has  never had a good  word   for anyone or anything in  Nelson   since   the   day   it   passed  under the management of its. present owners.

Prior and Earle, the sitting  members, have again accepted the  Conservative nomination, while the  Liberals   are   said   to   be   merely  waiting to secure their candidates'  assent   before    announcing    their  names.    In Nanaimo the Liberals  have candidate Sloan, to- retain if  possible the seat vacated  by AV.  AV. B. Mclnnes, with the Conservative candidate as yet unknown.   In  AArestminster    the     Conservatives  have tendered their nomination to  county court judge Bole, and await  his acceptance.    Should he accept  he will go against Aulay, Morrison,  the   sitting   Liberal   member.    In  Yale-Cariboo it is a case of lawyer  MacNeill or lawyer Galliher for the  seat vacated by Hewitt Bostock.  Burrard has not yet had any convention, but it is generally understood that Vancouver's political  parson will this time be opposed by  his quondam political associate R  Carter-Cotton, as the Conservative  candidate.  LIVELY WEDDING  TRIP.  Toronto Slav.  The Grand Trunk railway system  must be reckoned with when running records are discussed. Although several of the United States  lines have achieved prominence  lately for the speed of their through  passenger trains, but little has been  said about tho fast trains on the  Grand Trunk. In nearly all the  schedules valuable minutes havo  been clipped off, and better service  lias been installed all around.  As an oxample of the speed of  the Grand Trunk locomotives are  capable of making, tako the trip  of the special train which conveyed  Henry Ledyard, son of president  Led yard of the Michigan Central  and his bride, nee Miss Hendrie of  Hamilton, from Hamilton to AVinnipeg in pursuit of the transconti-  nen tai express, which had left Toronto during the i3rogre3s of the  wedding ceremony.  On September 4th president Ledyard of the Michigan Central received a message from his daughter,  baroness von Ketteler, widow of  the murdered German representative "at Pekin, to meet her at Yokohama, Japan. He could not go in  person, so he was forced to send his  son on the long journey. To send  his son it was necessary to either  postpone his marriage or to have  the ceremony a day ahead. Miss  Hendrie, under tho circumstances,  acquiesced, aud the ceremony was  performed on Thursday, September  Oth.  Now at the time of the wedding  festivities the transcontinental express, which goes through to Vancouver, had left Toronto some  hours, and was already miles on its  journey, so Mr. Ledyard, with the  assistance of tho Grand Trunk, proceeded to hustle to catch the flyer.  A special train of an engine and  a car left Hamilton at 3:58 p. m.  The special made the journey of  255 miles to North Bay, including  nine stops, in 5 hours, and 30  minutes; and, continuing, caught  the flyer at Winnipeg yesterday  where the special car was attached  to the express.  >._^'&&!_Lfc&fcjfcfr-_g-g-&g'g'g'&g|g:g<<-g-^fr<-<t<   ���_ ,  Uf  to  iti  to  to  to  to  iti  iti  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  w  <fc CO.

Strange as it may appear to some, the maker of this  statement is quite prepared to  demonstrate the truth of what he  says by documentary evidence. He  gives the genealogy of the Joubert  family, stating that it comes from  Poitou (France), and that the Boer  general is.a.descendent in a direct  line from the knight Joubert, grand  master of the Order of St. John of  Jerusalem, in 11 (50, and that a  great-great-grandson of the said  knight was killed by the English.in  1357,-in the battle of Poitiers.  Wholesale  Houses  NELSON  B. C.  Tub Victoria Colonist does not  take kindly to the election  predic-  ^-tions���whicli^^^the^Consei'vative"  leaders are making upon the stump.  The Colonist reasons that neither  the   politicians nor the. editors [of  newspapers have any means of der  termining whether tlieir party is  going to sweep all before it or. not.  Very much depends upon just what  is in front of the party that proposes to do the sweeping, and  this  can never be determined until the  ballots are ay counted.     Prophetic  victories aro indulged in  by campaigners for the purpose of putting  ginger into tlieir followers.    Thoy  convey   an   impression   in   words,  which, in the glow of enthusiasm, is  taken   as   tho   conviction   of   the  speaker that the side with which  lie is identified has the down-hill  pull and cannot possibly lose. Even  in this ifc not infrequently happens  that the faithful are imposed upon.  Skillful speakers guard themselves,  and   reservations   are   slid   in, sq  framed and glossed over that their,  presence is not detected. .    These  serve their purpose on  the stump,  but in cold type, where the reservation would stick out as big as the  prediction, they would be too transparent.     Conscientious newspapers  therefore cannot indulge in general  predictions.    They must make the  predictions without reserve, or not  sit all; and most newspapers prefer  lo hold what reputation for honesty  J. E. ANNABLE, Manager.  A Siberian Mining Town.  Blagovestchensk, in eastern Siberia, recently bombarded by the  Chinese, is the centre of the Amur  gold mining. It lies at the junction  of two wide navigable rivers, the  Amur and the Blei, and was founded  in 1858���almost contemporaneously  with the city of New AVestminster  ���since when it has grown rapidly  from a small military outpost to a  large trading town, with a population, in 1897, of 32,600. The town  is divided from Chinese territory  only by the Amur, and its' importance has been greatly increased  by the Siberian railway, as it lies  on the direct river route from the  eastern terminns of the line at  Stretensk to Khabarovsk and the  Pacific. It is 5519 miles by rail and  river to St. Petersburg.  Victoria Cross for a Strathcona.

After the order to retire had beon  given, Richardson, who was ou a  wounded horse, rode back under a  heavy cross lire tp within 300 yards  of the enemy, rescuing a wounded  trooper whose horse had been"shot.

Silvc.rton Silvertbnian.  A property, the richness of which  is going to surprise not only the natives but also the outside mining  men and capitalists, is the Smuggler  mine at the head of Ten Mile creek.  This property, which belongs to the  Warner Miller Syndicate, has for  some time been under development  and has now reached a stage where  its success as a mine is assured.  It has beeu systematically and  successfully opened up under the  management of Dickenson & Folt,  and under tlio foremauship of  Patrick McGuire, formerly of the  Noble Five mine. Over 1200 feet of  underground development work has  been done upon the Smuggler vein,  consisting of tunnels, winzes and  upraises. The property is a tunnel  proposition and in all three tunnels  have been driven tipou it. No. 1,  tho upper tunnel, is now in a dis?  tance of over 400 feet and the face  is nearly under a big ore shute exposed on the surface. This tunnel  has been driven directly upon the  vein -which varies in width from  liiue to twelve feet and carries, as  far as explored, a continuous paystreak of ore safely running 800  ounces in silver to the ton and. varying in width from two to four  inches. Tunnel No. 2 is also in over  ���100 feet and is in oi'e its entire  length as is also an upraise put up  from this tunnel over 100 feet. The  lower tunnel, No. 3, is in 120 feet,  tho first part of which being a  cross-cut, but when the vein was  sti uck ore was encountered and the  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  balance of the tunnel is in ore as is  also a 30. foot winze sunk from it.  The strike of the vein is northerly  and southerly, the character of the  ore taken from the paystreak*being  a black iron and zinc mixed with  galena that will run from 800 to  "lOOO^ounc^s^in^sirvei^to^th^tonT  Good quarters have been erected at  the property; and a force of about  20 miners are steadily employed.  A. con tract for the packing of this  ore to Enterprise Landing on Slocan  lake has lately been let and it will  now take its place as a shipper, of  rich ore.  Another property owned by the  same company, adjoining the  Smuggler is the Slocan Chief. Tho  ore from this property, which consists of galena carrying large quantities of grey copper, is so rich that  the muck taken out is washed and  any ore that it might contain saved  in that way.       American and Eng-lish Boys.  Fights are a recognized part of  the school education among the  boys. In America, when boys fight,  it is because they are angry with  each other ; in England, they fight  because they are anxious to find  out which is the better man physically. They may have no quarrel  or illfeeling, but if their friends  cannot agree as to their respective  prowess the ultimate.result is pretty  apt to be a "mill."  Life is more strenous. in America  than in England, and this shown in  the sports of the two nations.  Take the game of football as an  illustration. . In the American college game the tackling is lower,  harder and surer than in the Eng-lish game. The backs hit the line  as one man, like a battering ram.  Every yard gained or lost is of  great importance. Year by year  the game grows more complicated,  .more    fierce,    and  more    perfect  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.

In  England they play the game more  loosely, miieh; as their fathers did  before them. Cricket and baseball  are the national games of the respective countries,  and nowhere.  do national characteriatico appear  more in evidence. Cricket is an ail-  day, leisurely, social event; baseball  is an hour of wild excitement. The  English game cultivates the amenities of life, and courtesy is a canon  of the game. Baseball keeps the  nerves too near the edge to leave  much room for the interchange of  fellowship and good-will toward  the opposing team.  President Frost, of Berea college,  who has made a careful study of  English public school system, says  that the thing whicli struck him  most sharply was the difference betweeu their method of play and  ours. They take their sports as a  matter of course. The American  boy takes his as a sort of delirium.

The Shay engine No. Ill has been  tested on the big hill at Rossland.

Sandon���I^iystroakf=a====;=:g===^  candidate in the field to oppose  those nominated by the machine  politicians of Yale-Cariboo-Koot-  enay. The date and place of meeting has not been decided, but the  convention will probably be held in  Nelson within the next 30 days.  There are several men mentioned as  possible nominees who would make  good representatives, any one of  whom could be elected. The determination of the labor element  throughout the constituency to  elect; a representative to the Ottawa house is the direct; outcome  of tho mistrust with which both the  old parties are held by tho great  majority of tho people. That the  Wost has been betrayed and traduced by the professional politicians  is too painfully self-evident to even  require assertion. That neither  party will promise anything while  in opposition that it will enact  while in power is fche aggregate of  knowledge gained through tho experience of many years. That both  parties serve the same interests in  opposition and.Jii.-po'wer is the conclusion to which an honest electorate  has been'forced against its will.  That the people have been gold-  bricked aud thrown down at every  turn is clearly demonstrated by an  analysis of the actions of the past  and the promises for the future on  which these parties seek election.  Edith Miller Concert.  Of the Edith Miller Concert  company, which appears in, Fraternity hall next Thursday evening, the Victoria Colonist; says:  "Miss Miller is an artist of rare  ability, of greath warmth and  beauty of tone. Miss Miller is by  long odds the best contralto singer  heard here for many years, and is  certainly a most accomplished  vocalist. Her "expression is earnest,  but free . from, exaggeration, and  therefore satisfying and effective.  Miss Miller was applauded and recalled during.-, the evening with  spontaneous enthusiasm."  A Satisfactory Performance.  Russell & Drew's theatre company opened a week's stand at the  opera house last night; with Quo  Vadisand scored a splendid success.  The ��� theatre ' was crowded, the  audience being the largest of the  season.' The applause was more  than liberal. - The company is capable, aud iu Quo Vadis their costumes, scenery, sittings and properties far outclassed anything ever  attempted on a Nelson stage.
