 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING SEPTEMBER tl J 900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  MORE BOER SUPPLIES TAKEN  Pole-Carew at Koopmuiden.  London, September 2J.���Tho war  oflico gtive out the following dispatch from lord Roberts this ovening: "Waterval, Thursday, September 20.���Pole-Carew reached  Koopmuiden yesterday. Practically there was no road, and his  way had to be cut through ."jungles  rut up by ravines. He captured US'-  cars of flour, one car of coffee, and  10 damaged engines at Waterval-  onder. Yesterday, evening lieutenant U. V. Clark was shot, bufc  not fatally, by a sentry while making the rounds. The sentry did not  geb his reply."  Teamster Severely Injured.  O. Bruddell is lying at the gencial hospital suffering from severe  injuries received on the Nelson &  Fort Sheppard track. Bruddell was  a teamster at J. AV. Stewart's railroad camp near tho city. He was  woi king at a fill when a freight  train passed and stood back against  the hill as the cars went by.   A  Ll STANDS IN WITH RUSSIA  America Differs From Germany  Loxnox, September 21.���It seems  to be generally believed throughout  Kin-ope that Germany purposed her  demand that the  anti-foreign leader.-,  should  bo  surrendered  before  negotiations could bo  commenced,  wifch a view or delaying any general acceptance of her proposal until field maishal count von Waldersee should arrive at Pekin.    A dis-  ' patch to the Daily Telegraph from  "Washington asserts that tho United  States government has politely declined to agree  to  Germany's proposal on this very ground."  In any  ,event  with  count von   Waldersee  -    and la Hung Chang both jouruey-  ���   ing northward, matters must  soon  reach a crisis.  The manner of earl Li's reception  seems to denote the suspicions ex-  li.slingin Shang-Hai regarding his  cio.e understanding with Russia.  .About four thousand Russian  troops, and all the principal Russian officers, met him at Chung  Liiine: Chau, half way to Tien-Tsin.  .A'*long conference was held at  which no representative of any  other power was present. This remarkable friendship apparently exists at a time when two continents  are ringing with the stories of mas-,  sacres by the Russians in Amur.  The Moscow correspondent of tho  Standard, reverting to the subject  ������ of tho massacres this morning, says:  '���I'Yoni a recent visitor to tho Amur  region I learn that massacres are  tho order of the day with the  troops that  are overrunning  iMan-  - chut-in." The orders are Issued by  general Grodokoff.    Rut ifc is quite  . certain that emperor Nicholas must  be ignorant of their nature. My  informant has scon a series of telegrams from one JManchurian commander, overy one of which beseeches that he be allowed to spare  peaceable citizens, but the  Russian  ��� indifference to tho lives of tho common herd is still of a. truly oriental  , type." The same correspondent  asserts that troops by the wholesale continue to pour into Manchuria.  Li   Hung   Chang,   according   to  Shang-Hai dispatches, assumed the  ' seals of the vieeroyalty of China  yesterday. His oflicers are busy  raising 8000 foreign drilled men and  well armed veterans, who are now  encamped at Yang Chow, and will  proceed to Tien-Tsin as earl Li's  bodyguard, under command of  Chang   Kan   Yung,  who was  the  - Chinese general at Kiao Chou when  the Germans seized that place. It  is reported that Liu Kung Ki, viceroy of Nankin, alarmed at the prospects of the German fleet ascending  the Yang Tse Kiang, is placing obstructions in the Channel below the  Kiang Vin forts, and sending troops  to the northeast of Kiang Su for  ' fear tho Germans may land troops  there to attack the Sing KiaiyFu.  =7^Thlf%SliairfpHai correspondent of  the Morning Post expresses the  opinion that Germany's policy may  yet load to a rising in Central  China. The Standard has a Taku  telegram asserting that, as a means,  of averting, punishment,'the acting  governor of Pao Ting Fu has posted  a- proclamation -ordering the sup-,  pression of tho Boxers.  horse attached to a dump cart  started to back into the train as  the locomotive passed. The freight  cars struck it and horse aud cart  were tossed into the air. Bruddell's  nose was smashed, some teeth  knocked out, his face badly torn  and he was otherwise hurt. The  cirfc. was broken to splinters and  tho horse killed.  ROUNDING UP THE CHINESE  y  For Revenue Purposes.  The city road tax was collected  from the resident Chinamen last  night and the collection caused a  veritable hot timo in Chinatown.  The tax collector, with chief  Thompson of the fire department  and half-a-dozen members of the  brigade invaded tho Chineso quarter on Front street between seven  and eight o'clock. The method of  operation was to select a laundry  or boarding house, put sentries on  all the exits and then demand payment of the road .tax, which  amounts to $2 per head.  When the invaders entered a  a house the hubbub that arose was  almost deafening. A few of the  celestials had sottled up earlier in  the year, and saved a further outlay  by producing their receipts. A  large number of others claimed to  have settled, but had nothing to  substantiate their statements and  eventually paid up. Still another  section refused to "savey" what the  oflicers desired aud were marched  off to the police cells. The procession to the city hall -was a lively  spectacle. Twenty-three Chinamen  wero in the string and they protested vigorously. The bunch was  turned into the cells and hero tho  jabbering continued for half tho  night. Tho celestials will be  brought uj) this morning before the  police magistrate.  No difficulty was met with in  making the arrest. The old game  of passing around tho receipts was  tried but did not work.  CHINESE QUESTION OPENED  Laurier Appoints a Commission.  Ottaava, September 20.���The dominion government has appointed  R. C. Clute of Toronto, Daniel J.  Munn of New "Westminster, and  Ralph Smith, M. P. P. for Nanaimo,  as a commission to investigate and  report upon the Chinese immigration question. At the last session  of parliament sir Wilfrid Laurier  promised, when increasing the poll  fax upou Chinese from $50 to $100  per head, to appoint a commission  to go fully into the Avhole subject  and report what tax is desirable, if  any. or Avhether Chineso immigration should be prohibited altogether.  Commissioner Clute will no doubt  be chairman of the commission,  Avith D._J.JVIunn_as__the__,rept_esenta^  tive of the -.Fraser river canneries,  which are the largest employers of  Chinese labor in British Columbia,  and Ralph Smith as the representative of organized labor.  Russians Butcher Chinese.  London, September 21���"Authentic accounts have been received  here," says the Moscow eorrespon0-  dent of the Standard, "of n horrible  massacre at Blagovestchensk, Avhich  was undoubtedly carried out under  direct orders from the Russian  authorities, and which then lefc  loose the tide of slaughter through  Amur. The entire Chinese population of ~)000 souls was escorted out  of town to a spot live miles  up the Amur, and then, being  lod in batches of a few  hundred to the river bank, wero  ordered to cross OA'er to the Chinese  sido. No boats"were piwided, and  the river is a mile wide. The Chinese  were flung alive into the stream  and wero stabbed or shot at. the  least resistance, Avhile Russian  volunteers who lined tho bank  clubbed or shot any who attempted  to land. Not one escaped alive.  The river bank for miles was strewn  .with corpses."  Ralph Smith May Run,  Ottaava, September 21.���At tho  trades and labor congress today, a  resolution was unanimously passed  asking Ralph Smith to run as labor  candidate for the Dominion house  in Nanaimo. Mr. Smith consented  to do so if the negotiations which  labor men had Avifch another candidate were not too far adA'anced to  prevent him doing so.  Loss Now Stated cat 47f>-.  Gat/veston, September 21.���  Fivery man Avho is willing to work  has been pressed into service here.  Tho wreckage is fast being cleared  away and an air of business onco  moro proA-ades tho city. The Houston Post today prints a, revised list  of those who perished in the great  storm.' This list has been carefully  compiled from various sources and  places the number of known dead  at 1757. The railroads ha>Te large  forces of men at work and outside  communication is uoav only a question of a ATery short while.  Keeping'Up Lumber Rafcen.  Toronto, September 21.���The  Lumbermen's Association of Ontario has decided to maintain the  high prices for lumber owing-to the  active demand in the English markets and tho anticipated shortage  of at least 300,000,000 feet of lumber in Georgian Bay, including eastern Michigan points and the output  of the mills of eastern Michigan.

General McClernand  raised the famous McClernand brigade in, the civil AA'ar and sei'ATed as  brigadier-general and major-general  AN   ATHABASCA  DIVIDEND  Payable on October 1st.  E.

The diA'idend is  equal to five per cent on the capital  stock of tho company, and is payable on the 1st of October. The  Athabasca company is in good  shape and regular' dividends may  be expected from this time forward.  The official announcement of the  dividend appears in another column.  Strike on the Dundee.  Charles Dundee of Rossland was  in the eity yesterday, and ltft this  morning for Ymir. Tho superintendent of tho Dundee mine has reported a strike which Avill probably  place the Dundee on a level with  the biggest properties of the district. A ledge has been located  and traced for 2000 feet,- from  which assays haA'e been takeu  ranging from $10 to $120. Tho report stated that the ledge was 18  feet "wide, but Mr. Dundee does not  know as yet Avhether this is the  maximum or average Avidth. A  peculiar feature of the strike is  that the discovery Avas the direct  outcome of tbeTire which destroyed  the Dundee concentrator. The  flames burnt off" the timber and  brush, exposing -the lead where  none was known to exist. If the  ledge proves to be as good as tho  first reports Avould indicate tho  company's lire losses will be more  than repaid.          ;  C. S. Wallis of Rossland was  registered at the Hotel Hume yesterday. ' He is largely interested in  the Tamarac group at Ymir, and  states that the arrangements for  tho construction of the tramway  from the Tamarac to the Nelson &  Fort Sheppard road aro avcII under  way, and that the property Avill  ship extensively during tho winter.

The wagon road up the creek is  progressing rapidly. David McBeath has GO men ab work along  the road, and Avithin three Aveeks it  will bo completed. An unusual  feature aboufc the road is that its  total rise is but 1500 feet, and this is  spread over the wholp seven miles,  making a very easy grade.  The mino is located 3000 feet  aboA-e the road and a crew of men  havo been engaged in opening up a  raAvhide trail to the mine.

This is  done at the request of sheriff Toole  Avho hopes in, this manner to avoid  further trouble?������ The outlook at  midnight, however, is dubious, as  the foreigners affected' by today's  happenings are in an ugly mood.

Several answers  have already been received, but no  information   about   thorn .can   be  given out now, except tho general  statement that the reception of the.  note has  been eA'ery where favorable.   I repeat that no persons in  authority at Washington have expressed disapprobation of tbe note."

Japan is Stirred Up.  Yokohama, September 20.���The  country is'tremendously stirred up  by the discussion of Russia's propo-  sitionto-withdraw-from-Pekin.���Ifc  is not that Japan shares in the  least degree in the panic of. fear  Avhich seems to possess the west  when tho name of Russia is mentioned. There is not a trace of that  in the present attitude of visitation. It is only that having so recently entered into tho coramuuity  of the western powers this country  is conscious of the dignity and importance of her position as the first  of the oriental nations to enjoy tho  privilege, and it therefore most becomingly hesitates to take an attitude inimical to tho majority.

The people do  not want to draw to a bob-tail  flush; they do not want to elect a  man to reprosent them that would  bo without a party, if he were elected. They believe that either of  the two candidates already named  aro so broad-minded and so independent that they will be fair with  all classes oC the people and with  all interests. The sensible Labor  men say that their interests would  not be advanced by making a contest at this time, as it would only  end in failure.  A     manufacturing    enterprise  was started in Nelson  a year, ago  that has now a reputation in every  mining camp in Kootenay. ���   It was  " started in . N'elson because   Nelson  was the only place at which cheap  water  power   could   be  obtained,  Cheap power will make Nelson .what  Spokane now is.    Are our people  willing to take the chances?  TiTE bonding of the Harris group  5n St. Mary's" district to Philip Corcoran will serve to bring the St.  Mary's district to the front. With  a prospect which commands'a.price  of .$125,000 in its undeveloped stage  j[tt the hands of & syndicate-wltl^  plenty of money the outlook for  the district is very bright.  "With dividond-paying mines in  (he near neighborhood and cheap  power for industrial enterprises,  Nelson should double in population  within two years.  Nelson" will be to -British Columbia what Hamilton is to Ontario, if  hor people are only willing to tako  chances and encourage manufacturing aiul industrial enterprises.  THE HARRIS GROUP BONDED  Payments Aggregate,$125,000.  Kuskonook, September 21.���An  important deal has been closed by  Philip Corcoran, representing senator Rums of San .Francisco and  other capitalists of San Francisco  and New York, for the purchase of  the Harris group of mines, situate  on White Fish creek in the St.  Mary's country. The consideration  is $125,000.  This group consists of twelve  claims, and tho showing of high  grade copper and gold ore is unsurpassed in the provinco. Mr. Corcoran  spent nearly the whole of the past  season looking over the principal  camps in both East and West Kootenay, and after a thorough inspection decided the Harris group to be  tho banner group of any in the  country. Ho thereupon opened  negotiations.with the owner, Mrs.  Jennie. E. .Harris of Kaslo, with the  result that the deal was closed here  yesterday, and papers relating to  same deposited in the Merchants  Bank of Halifax. Nelson.  There are nine claims on the one  vein, which averages about forty  feet in width, their values rnnning  as high as $400 to the ton in copper, gold and silver. A considerable  amount-of work. has been done on  the property by the original owners. A' tunnel 200 feet long has  been run in, following the vein,  from which a winze has been sunk  some GO feet.. The lead has also  been uncovered ,the entire length  of the group on the surface.  Mr. Corcoran leaves for the property tomorrow, with his engineer,  to decide upon plans for immediate  development. Bunk houses, ore  bins, blacksmith shops, etc., will be  erected at once. It is also his intention to install a compressor plant  at an early date. In consequence  of such a strong syndicate as the  ono which Mr. Corcoran represents,  becoming interested in this group,  the success of the White Fish Creek  camp is assured.  A strike of considerable, importance was made last week on the  "Diamond Joe" mineral claim situate on Goat mountain, about jtwo  "miles from the junction of the  Crow's Nest and Kootenay Aralley  railroads. Two feet of galena ore  has been uncovered, and the lucky  owner, A. 11. Finrow of Port Hill,  Idaho, is already making preparations for extension development,  lie expects to be shipping ore this  fall.  The  are driving a long crosscut tunnel  On their property on Goat creek.  Father Cocola, of St. Eugene mission, was in town today and reports  a stampede into the Perry creek  country, owing to the recent gold  strikes made in that locality.  William McLean was in. tho district last week appointing foremen  and laying out trail improvements.  MINING,   RECORDS.

IMINING IN JOHANNESBURG  The Outlook is Cheerful.  The Daily   Graphic's   cori-espon-  jflent at Pretoria says:  The situation at. Johannesburg,  [especially   with   reference   to the  [mining industry, attracts increas-  Jing attention.   These mines, which  [have reached tin producing state,  ���will  be able to start crushing, on  lore that has already been developed, as soon as a moderate num-  [ber of workers come back, as it will  jbe possible effectively to supply the  Icrushing mills without a full  com-  Iplement of men.    Development on  Jnlieso mines will  probably  be. decayed for some three months later  bhan that, but this will not inter-  Ifere with running /them generally  lis mills, mines and machinery are  Jill in good condition.  TPnniping is now going on at the  lines which have most water in  |}hem, and it is'thought that all will  .e emptied in. about three months,  in one important mine there are  L 500 feet of water.  The new producing mines will  fiave to wait longer than the others  fief ore work is commenced on them.  The labor which might now-be.  muployed upon the producing mines  ts for the time being divided from  (libera and being.used upon the cou-  Htriiction of the new Springs, Rand  Ifc Vereeniging railway. Eleven  thousand Kaffirs are at the present  Itnoment employed on the new rail-  Iway, and it is thought, only fair to  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  give the producing mines the first  available supply of labor.  Colonel Girouard, director of the  railways, has suggested that the  various mining bodies should combine to spend . ��500,000 upon rolling stock for the jjiirpose of running  -the-new-railvvay���The-mines"which~  have adopted this suggestion intend to glace orders at  once for 300 trucks and 15 engines.  The question of rolling stock will  become vital in the event of the  enemy destroying the 8000 trucks  and 200 engines which aro now  massed at Selati, a great part of  which belong to the Free State  and Colonial Railway. To replace  these- would' take eighteen months,  and this would mean that half the  population woukl be. kept back indefinitely, as it! would be impossible  to work the mines fully Avithout  supplies and coal, nor could the  population be supplied with the  means of living. The ordinary coal  consumption o.{ the Rand, is 115,000  tons per month.   -  The white population of the Rand  at present is estimated at 80,000,  two-thirds of whom are foreigners.  The native population is about the  same as at ordinary times, some  120,000. About 00,00.0 British subjects are away.  The imperial government is at  present paying native workmen at  the rate of thirty shillings per  month; the mines are paying them  the same, as compared with sixty  shillings per month before the war.  It is suggested that the na tive  labor departments should be reconstructed under government control,  aud that shelters should be established and traveling facilities under  special government protection  offered, in order to induce the east  coast and other natives to return  to the Rand.  . The establishment of anew civil  government is strongly desired in  order that these important pt-ob-i  Imperial Bank of Canada  HKAD  OFFICE. TORONTO.

Many holders  of these claims are fighting in the  ranks of the various colonial corps.  It is also felt that in future prospecting licenses should ^e granted  at greatly reduced rates, and the  country thus thrown open to tho  prospecting enterprise of new and  old settlers. The revenue, it is  argued, should be obtained from a  fair share of the results, as is done  in other mining countries, and hot  by preliminary taxation as heretofore.      .

The fact that candidates arc  being nominated in the -different  constituencies throughout the Dominion and that the leaders of both  parties are on the stump indicate  that the country is in the throes of  an election campaign no matter  how long election day may be deferred, o It was , at first thought  that the elections would, be held iu  October, but tho wiseacres have  now chosen January as the month  when people will decide whether to  continue the present government or  not. In this district the fight will  bo made under peculiarly satisfactory conditions. Tho conventions by choosing Messrs. Galliher  and MacNeill have given the lie to  the statement that a candidate  must be possessed of great wealth  in   order to run in this   district.  Both candidates start in the running  on an even footing so far as -tin y  themselves" are concerned. They  are not wealthy men, both - are  lawyers and both are possessed of  ability. Both candidates are piacj  tically unknown outsido the cities  in whicli they reside and have  had no parliamentary experience.  The prejudice in favor of a local  man in Rossland will ,be offset ,by a  similar prejudice in-favor of-the  Nelson man. The fight will be  fought as it should be fought on  the merits and records of the two  great parties in this country and  not on personal grounds. [7nd< r  these circumstances the battle in  Yale-Cariboo district should be  fought���wi thout^"th"e unpleasant"  personal conflicts that usually mar  the pleasures of election campaigns.
