NELSON:  THURSDAY MORNING SEPTEMBER 20 J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  .-��_;��� I  New German Liner Arrives.  New York, September 10.���The  new steamer Princess Irene, the  latest addition to tho Meet of the  North German Lloyd line, arrived in  jjorfc today from Bremen via Cherbourg. The Princess Irene was  built by the Vulcan Company at  Stettin. During tho voyago the  Princess Irene experienced very  heavy weather. On September  13th. and 14th she experienced a  hurricane from southwest to northwest, with a heavy sea. For twelve  '������ hours the wind blew.with cyclonic  ���fury. She is commanded by captain Wetin, formerly chief- commander of the; company's steamer  Kaiser Wilhelm II.  Salisbury Sent No Note.  London, September 19.-���The  British foreign office informs tho  Associated Press that no reply has  yet been sent to the German note.  Referring to the alleged telegram  of lord Salisbury to Li Hung  Chang, outlined apparently by the  SAYS HOWARD SHOT GOEBEL  Some Sensational Testimony.  Frankfort, Kentucky, September 10.���The first really sensational  testimony in the trial of .Tames  IfowaVd, charged with having fired  tho shot that killed William Goebel,  was given by Bowman Gaines, a  loesil liveryman, and .lames Stubble-  field, former deputy sheriff of Claj'  rotinty. The former identified  Howard as tho man who ran out  from the state-house grounds and  jumperl over tho fence after the  shooting. Tlio witness was positive  in his identification, as the man  wore a moustache, aud was followed  by a tall man. A boy near by at  the   time   will    also    corroborate  Gaines' statement.  Tho most sensational witness,  however, and at the same timo the  most important witness from the  prosecution's standpoint, was James  Stubblefield, a one-legged and one-  armed ex-deputy sheriff of Clay  county. Stubblefield testified .that  I inward exultantly told him ho  fired the shot that took Goebel's  life. Stubblefield lost his limbs as  n result of the Clay county feuds  lasfc year. Tlis testimony iu detail  was that Howard stopped at his  houso in February, shortly after  the shooting. Shortly after ho  mine in Stubblefield said that he  remarked to Howard: "Jim, you all-  have been having trouble down at  I'Yankfort."  "Yes," responded Howard, according to tho witness. "We havo  raised hell aud cleaned the platter,"  and added: "I never sight down  my gun barrel but what 1 get meat  or money, and this time I got both."  The witness says Howard was  again at his house several days  later, and he asked him what he  meant by his former remark. Howard responded, "By God, T meant  just what I said."   ,       :  "Witness said he then pressed  him, putting the direct-question:  "Jim, do you mean to say you killed  Goebel?" Howard, he - says, responded in the affirmative, and said  he believed his mountain friends  would stand by him, and that 500  men could not take him to Frankfort for trial.  Stubblefield said he did not tell  the story of Howard's confession to  him until he heard that Howard  and hi.s friends wore planning to kill  him. The defense subjected the  witness to a severe cross-examination, but failed lo tangle him to  any extent.  VILJOEN NOW IN COMMAND  Of the Boer Army.  Spitzkop, September IS.���General  Viljoen, who succeeded Louis Botha  ��� in the supreme command of the  Transvaal forces, is reported to be  moving northward in the direction  of Hector-spruit, with 3000 men and.  .10 guns. He is known as tho "Firo  Brand," and will endeavor to protract the war.  7 New   York,   September   li).-���A  dispatch to the Tribune from London says: A large part of the  Rustenbcrg commando lias surrendered and thero are reports that  commandant Botha has given himself up. .  The Mai l's correspondent in  Maritzburg. says it is stated that  lord Roberts is expected to leave  Pretoria for England about October 3rd.  Shang-Hai correspondent of the  Daily Express, the foreign office  officials say tho British premier has  not sent any message to IVi Hung  Chang. It is pointed out at the  foreign office here that the Washington press message?, averring  that the British and tho Japanese  governments have already announced thoir support of tlio German policy in Chiua, are unfounded,  so far as Great Britain is concerned.  TRYING TO FORGE MATTERS  In Chinese Negotiations.  Washington; September 19.���  With tho German proposition to  postpono peace negotiations with  China until the persons responsible  for the Pekin outrages are punished,  and the French and Russian notification of the purpose of these governments to begin such negotiations  at once, awaiting him, the president found much matter of importance to dispose of upon his arrival  iu Washington for Canton this  morning. He losfc no time in notifying the officials ho desired to consult on his return and the day was  largely given up to private discussions.  Although it was stated that no  answer would be ready" to the German note today, ifc appeared that  the president, after talking over  the situation with attorney general  Griggs, acting secretary Hill and  assistant secretary Adee, had  arrived at a conclusion as to the  nature of tho response that should  be made. Mr. Adee spent the afternoon consulting acting secretary  1 fill and iu drafting the note of' response, but all information as to its  nature was refused at the state department. Jt was said that the  note is to bo gone over carefully at*  a further meeting between tho president and such of his advisers as  are in the'eity.  The German government apparently is anxious for a speedy reply,  as baron Sternberg paid two .visits  to the state, department this afternoon after the German note was  deliArered. The Chinese minister  also was twice at the state department today seeking to influence the  government not to ;join in the  action suggested in the German  note. The conclusion reached from  tho day's developments is that the  powers are dividing as to China,  and at present Germany and  Great Britain stand aligned  against France and Russia,  while both sides are ardently  seeking tho adherence of the Uuited  States government. Tho issue appears to be made up in such shape  as to dismiss further hope of attaining that harmony of action respecting China that the president lias  been seeking so far, and the point  apparently has been reached where  the United States must take sides  at once or proceed to be independent of the other powers in reaching a .settlement. Thus far thero  has been a.restraining_forco_m_the.  desire to avoid making the United  States the first of the powers to  break the silence that has been  maintained up to tho present time  in dealing with China.  Concession Holders on Strike.  Pauls, September .19.���A large  number of concession holders of the  exposition, and proprietors of sideshows and restaurants, who are  threatened with ruin, owing to,"as  they claim, the excessive demands  of the authorities, and the failure  of tho latter to fulfill their original  engagements, havo announced their  decision to close thoir establishments in a body tomorrow unless  the authorities consent to submit  their claims to an arbitration committee. M. Picard, director-general,  has hitherto been inexorable, but  in the face of the decision of the  concessionaries, the execution of  which would mean disaster to the  Saturday fete which will be given  at the exposition to 12,000 visiting  mayors, after their banquet in the  garden of the Tuilleries, M. Miller-  and, minister of commerce, lias consented to the appointment of arbitrators. This'is a victory for the  concessionaries, who "designedly  fixed the strike prior to Saturday's  fete in order to force the government's hands.  President Bangs Dead. ���  BOSTON, September 19.���E. D.  Bangs, president of the Boston  Stock Exchange, died at his home  iu Winchester, today, from the  effects of a railway accident iu  which he was, injured some time  ago.  The construction of the-Molly  Gibson tramway is progressing  rapidly, the majority of the standards being in position. The wagon  'road is in bad shape at various  points and the government is being  urged by settlers and parties owning -property in the district to  make repairs. ���  E. Rammelmeyer, superintendent  of the Emily Edith, one of the coming groat mines back of Silverton,  Slocan district, has been in Nelson  for a few days on a visit to his  family. He leaves for the mino  today. , __  * All Favor Annexation.  London, September 19.���An effect of the dissolution of parliament has been to elicit declarations  from almost all the Liberal papers  and politicians in favor of the policy  of annexation in South Africa. The  manifestos of the party leaders  have not yet appeared, but as soon  as they do appear, the speechmaking will begin, and the campaign  will go forward furiously. It is asserted with an air of authority that  lord Salisbury will again be pre.  mier, and that all the members of  the present cabinet will be retained,  unless defeated at the polls. This  would make lord Salisbury's fourth  premiership.  Steel Companies Combine.  PrrrsnuRG, September 19.���Tho  American Sheet Steel Company and  the Republic Iron & Steel Company  have entered an arrangement by  which the former withdraws from  BIRDS EYE TO BE WORKED  Owners are Satisfied.  Work is to be resumed at once on  the Birds Eye property. J. W:  Wilson of London, father of the  Wilson brothers, who havo been  operating the property, visited the  mino yesterday. The decision regarding tho resumption of work  was arrived at last night.  Mr. Wilson remarked to a Titi-  BUNi- reporter: "I am very much  pleased with the Birds Eye and be-  lievo wo havo tho makings of a  mine there. Work will bo recommenced without delay, and is to be  continued until the property is  thoroughly proved. We will start  by sinking from tho main'tunnel,  continuing the present shaft.- The  number of men to be employed on  the start will bo governed by .cir-  cumstances^but when the shaft is  completed a large crew can be utilized to advantage. The question  of a mill for the property remains"  to be solved. If the Birds Eye  turns out to be what we hope, a  mill, and a good big one, will follow as a matter of course.- The  last assay from the property was  $42, and with ore in sufficient  quantities, as we hope the winter's  work will demonstrate, the Birds  l_ye should be one of Nelson's most  important properties."  Captain Gifford, manager of the  Silver King, was in the city yesterday. He states that the crew at  the mino now numbers 50, tho staff  having been somewhat decreased  pending the 'installation of tho  machinery ordered a fow .weeks  .ago. The first shipment of plant is  duo to arrive ou October 10th, and  the balance will be to hand befoie  the end of October. Development  is being carried on steadily, but no  features of particular interest have  developed. ��  W. H.   Dowsing   leffc yesterday  morning' for Spokane, taking with  him the mineral collection from the  Nelson -- district - for   thoJ'- Spokane -  fruit fair. '         "  An unusually fine mineral specimen is on exhibition at Vanstonc's  drug store. It is from a claim near  the Skyline at Ainsworth owned by  J. Brush and is a dry ore containing  chloride of silver, which is said to  run 1300 ounces. The vein is only  the width of the specimen, about  six inches.  J. B. Old of Fire Valley is back  from a six months' trip to his old  home in Cornwall, England. He  reports times very good iu the tin  mining districts of Cornwall, owing  to tho great demand for tin and  the scarcity of that metal. The  tin ore of Cornwall is low grade,  but as tin seems to be a metal  about as scarce as platinum, there  is a fair profit now in working  mines that fifteen years ago were  abaudoned. Mr. Old came to Nelson iu 189] and has real estate in-  terests hero_and.in_Firo_-V"aHey-and  mining interests ou Kettle river.  the merchant 'trade and the latter  from sheet' production. In this  deal the phcet-company has secured  the sheet mills of the Republic at  Toledo, Irouton, Hazelton and  Youngstown, Ohio, and Alexandria,  Indiana, and will dismantle them  along with three sheet mills at  Shelton, Pennsylvania. Tho Republic gets the big bar mill of the  Reaves plantat Canal Dover, Ohio,  and will remove'the machinery to  its other mills..  WOULD SACRIFICE DUMMIES  Li Hung Chang's Trick.  Berlin, September 19.���It is understood that the immediate ca'use  for issuing Gerniajiy's circular note  to the power's regarding the  Chinese settlement was the fact  that,Li"]lung-C[hang, during his recent interview tvith Dr. Munn von  Schwartzensteiji, the German min-  ister to China,'mentioned a number  of names of alleged high mandarins,  hitherto wholly unknown, as those  responsible for the Pekin outrage,  and said that China was willing to  punish them.^.... This explanation seems tof fie borne.-., out by  tho following'!'.statement ���' wliich51  was made by 'the. Gorman'.foreign  office today: to the correspondent  of tlio AssociatedYPress in Berlin:  "What we waufrto avoid is'an opportunity for fallowing Cliina to  impose any shrpu- concessions'upon  the powers by delivering up for  punishment persons who had nothing to do with'.tlie Pekin'attrocities.  Hence it is advisable for the representatives of'the powers to designate beforehand all who are not  guilty. Germany wishes to reach  an agreement with tho powers regarding the guilty aud their punishment. \__ '*'  Sato, first' secretary of the Japanese legations herb,"said today: "I  think there willbe no difficulty in  getting the "-powers to agree on  principle to the German proposition,  to ��� pnnish^'tlio guilty. _ -The real  difficulty will' be in "deciding how  high to go. If they decide to  include prince Tuan they will find  that the empress regent was back  of him. Russia, in my opinion,  will not now withdraw her troops  from Pekin, inasmuch as Germany  and the other powers remain. " She  will decide that circumstances have  changed and that she must remain  also. Probably all tho interested  powers will agree to adopt the  German proposition with tho possible exception of Russia, who has  hitherto carefully avoided mentioning the punishment of tho guilty.  Certainly the United States will  adopt it.  The Lokal Anceiger says "Mere  notoriousness. does not suffice for  the assumption of guilt. The ministers at Pekin must produce proofs  against-eachpersou charged."  The Berlin Post and the National  Zeitung declare that the note proves  that Germany does not _wish_exces-_  sive or unreasonable demands, but  that she will insist upon the punishment of those really guilty as  the only way in which China can  be taught a lesson wliich she will  not forget.  The Berliner Tageblatt "remarks  that the position of Germany will  demonstrate whether any power  deems its special interests more important than the joint interests.  ; The , Vossiche Zeitung declares  that Germany will not be satisfied  with half measures.  The Borezen Zeitung contends  that the foreign envoys in Pekin  cannot afford to place the empress  regent and prince Tuan on the list,  and must therefore be content with  merely naming the actual anti-  legation leadors.  The Nueste Naehrichten demonstrates at length the necessity Of  punishing the real culprits.  Socialists Are Displeased.  Main/, Germany, September 19.���  The Socialist congress today, after  a heated discussion, adopted resolutions protesting strongly against  Germany's course in .China. Herr  Scheenlank said the -worst feature  of the general political situation  was the fact that Germany was  now in tho midst of absolutism  with a mock chancellor and a mock  reichstag.   Pig Iron Corner Collapsed.  London, September 10. ��� The  corner in Scotch pig iron has caved  in. . The price was maintained at  77s. for some time;-' and yestorday  77s. 3d cash was called. It collapsed  today at 08s. There was a paucity  of business throughout.  proceeded to Canon.  .   Pittsburg Phil Quits Horses.  Nkw York, September 19.���  Georgo E. Smith, "Pittsburg Phil,"  announces he has decided to sell all  the horses he has in training, never  again to own a racer. He is quoted  as saying: "I find there is no profit for me in owning horses. I have  to take very short prices against  them and when I am interested in  a horse in a race, why my judgment  is anchored. More than that, I am  compelled to take two to one  against a horse when six to one  would be moro than a fair price. It  is ruination."  Received with Honors.  Hong Kong, September 19.���The  German steamer Sachsen, having  on board field marshall count von  Waldersee, commander-in-chief of  the international forces in China,  and his staff, have arrived here;  The field marshal landed and was  received by a guard of honor of  British troops. He will this evening proceed to Shang-Hai and from  there to Taku on board the German  cruiser Hertha.  More Fighting in the Philippines.  Manila, September 19.���In an  engagement between a body of  Filipinos, numbering about 1000  men, and detachments of the 15th  and 37th United States infantry  regiments, yesterday, the Americans had 12 men killed, 20 wounded  and five missing.  Nevada Bank Bobbed.  Reno, Nevada, Sejitember  If).���  A   Gazette   special    from   Winue-  PEACE NEGOTIATIONS BEGUN  By France and Russia.  Washington,   September   19.���  The first definite determination to  begin peace negotiations with China  seems to have beeu reached by the  French and Russian governments,  which has made known their purpose to proceed with negotiations  wifch Li Hung Chang and prince  Ching as soon as feasible.    This will  likely have an important influenceon  the present negotiations which are  hinging to a considerable extent on  the opening of peace negotiations.  Within the last few days the United  States minister at Paris,   general-  Horace Porter, has been  seen frequently at the office of the -French  minister of foreign  affairs, M. Del  Case, and it is understood that the  sentiments of the most friendly accord have been exchanged between  tho two countries.   As France is  acting with Russia, this determiua- j  tion appears to remove any pros- I  pect of a modification of the Russo-  Franeo determination to withdraw  from Pekin.   It also disposes of all  questions as to the' credentials  of  Li Hung Chang, and places France  iin^positiou of being ready to pro-  /ceieafi.on,  the   credentials   he   lias  brought forward.  If it is the purpose of France and  Russia to begin peace negotiations,  it would follow that at least some  of tho great powers will not concur  iu the Germau note requiring the  surrender of the chief Chinese ringleaders, as an indispensable prerequisite to the opening of peace  negotiations. The Gei man note is  based on the theory that ��� no peace  -negotiations can go on until the  Chinese malefactors are surrendered.  On the other, hand the Franco-  Russian attitude contemplates proceeding with the peace negotiations at the earliest - feasible time,  without attaching any indispen:  sable .condition as to the _ present  surrender of, the .Chinese" offenders.,  Whether there is any-connection  between the German note aud the  Franco-Russian conclusion to go on  wifch the negotiations is purely conjecture, but it is probably significant that they came about the  same time.  New York, September 19.���A  dispatch to the Tribune from London says: "A German telegram  from Shang-Hai states that troops  are streaming to Tsi-nan-fu from  tho whole of China and that Tsi-  nan-fu, which is about GOO miles  southwest of Pekin, is regarded as  tiie permanent residence of the  emperor.'"  Hong Kong. September 19.���It is  reported in the AVest River district  that the Chinese troops are visible  in every town aud they are actively  drilling, A Chinese gunboat is  again patrolling the river, and it is  expected thafc some action is contemplated. The Sandpiper, which  has been patrolling the_delta,Jia3_  More Newfoundland Wrecks.  ( St. John's, Newfoundland, September 19.���Forty-two fishing vessels are ashore in the straits of  Belle Isle, and as many as 30 will be  totally lost. This is in addition to  the disasters previously reported.  Shipwrecked crews, aggregating 79  persons, have been brought south  by the mail steamer, and a special  steamer will go for the rest. Reports ot the loss of three more  lives wero received today.  Assassins After Salisbury.  London, September 19.���There  was an unusual gathering of uniformed police and Scotland Yard  detectives at King's Cross railroad  station this morning awaiting the  arrival of lord Salisbury from his  country seat. It is said that since  the premier's return to Hatfield he  has received an anonymous letter  of a charactor which has led to increased police vigilance.  Coal Advancing in Price.  Boston, September 19.���The coal  merchants of this city have decided that tho price of stove coal  from today on shall be $7 a ton,  an advance of $2 a ton within a  week. The object of the dealers in  raising the price to $7 is to stop the  people, who seem to have beon  seized with panic on account of the  great strike, from buying.  mucca says the First National Bank  of that city was robbed today at  noon by three men. Horses were  in waiting outside the bank. When  the robbers completed their work,  they mounted and started through  the streets at top speed. Hundreds  of citizens, alarmed by the shooting,  rushed from their homes and drew  the fire of the robbers, who escaped  unhurt. It is not known how  much booty was secured.  STRIKERS STILL CONFIDENT  Seventy Fer Cent Affected.  Hazelton, Pennsylvania, September 19.���The third day of the strike  passed off as quietly, as ��� the two  previous.days. Beyond.the occasional stoning of mine workers  going to or from work, there has  been no disorder. It was estimated  tonight that about 70' per cent of  the mine workers of this region  were idle today, which is quite au  increase over yesterday's figures.  President Mitchell did not issue a  formal statement tonight because  of his absence from headquarters.  He said, however, that from reports  he had received, he figured on more  than 120,000 men being idle' in .the  anthracite district. He added that  most gratifying" reports were received. No negotiations for a settlement of tho - strike are yet in  sight, and the situation^ in that respect is oppressively tho same as it  was yesterday. ~   .  The meeting this afternoon, at  Jeddo, of the employees offG. B.  Markle & , Co., who ."operate the  'Jeddo, Elbervale,' ��� Highland and  Oakdale colliers, proved-to be probably the most remarkable gathering  of its kind ever held in the anthracite region. It was expected to  be a heart to heart talk between  John Markle, managing partner of  the firm, and his ' employees, who  number 2500, but it developed into  a joint debate in which Mr. Markle,  president Mitchell, reverend father  Phillips, and national committee-  manJRjjI.^James-took part; Ifctbe-  gan in a dignified.manner, but gen-'  erated into a .hard argument, and  wouud up very close to personal ties.  All was quiet in the entire coal  fields today. Even -the. much advertised clash in the Liikens region  of "the Pennsylvania railway was  side-tracked through the decision  of -the strikers that it would be unwise" to march on the non-union  men at Williamstown and force  them to quit work. Nevertheless  there were fewer men at work today than yesterday. President  Mitchell claims that more than  120,000 men are now idle.  Contradictory reports come from  the Schulkill region. One to the  effect that the strikers at Morea,  after going out' today, had decided  tonight to return to work tomorrow, is being received with incredulity at strike headquarters.  The mine operators after generally maintaining a silence for sov-  eral-days-are^showinga^disposition"  to talk for publication, and as result" sevoral statements from their  side are printed. AU breathe the  same spirit. No recognition of the  United Mine Workers, and a fight  to the finish with president Mitchell  and his followers.

Washington, September 19.���H.  H. Lusk, formerly memberlof par-"  liament of New Zealand, was today  before the industrial commission.  He explained the system of arbitration in New Zealand, wliich he  said had been extremely satisfactory.���This -system~was" m^the""  form of compulsory arbitration,  and it had had six years' trial: The  fact that there was compulsory  arbitration there made both em-"  ployees and employers very careful  as to the justice of tlieir cases bo-  fore they acted. In those courts  of arbitration in New Zealand no  lawyers were allowed to appear.  Labor organizations in Sew Zealand are generally incorporated,  and thoy had found no disadvantage in such incorporations. Tho  arbitration law had at first been  favored by the employees and  fought by employers before it had  been enacted. Up to last year  three-fifths of all labor in New  Zealand was organized. Practically  the scalo of wages in New Zealand  were made by the labor organizations for the men outside the unions  as well as for those within it. The  arbitration court of New Zealand  never fixed the maximum rate of  wages, it simply fixed the minimum  rato of wages that can be paid.  The operations of this system, ho  said, did not hamper industries for  the reason that in the six.years  that it has been in operation the  industries had increased one^third.  This was effected by an increase in  old industries and tbe springing up  of new one3.  Wedded at Rossland.

The  experiments   made   wore   upon   a   scale  sufficiently   large   to   give   results  that   are   reasonably   comparable  with actual practice.   They  were  eminently     successful,     and     the  .'Journal states that the Frasch process has so many advantages, over  the   processes   followed   in   New  Jersey, that it bids fair to revolutionize present methods of extracting not only copper and nickel from  their  ores  and metallurgical products,   but appears   adaptable as  . well to the winning of- silver, mercury, and other metals that have  ��� hitherto     offered   insurmotintable  difficulties to their extraction in the  Avet way.        '  Thr importance of the successful  demonstration of the Frasch process to-tho province of Ontario can-  aiofc well be over-estimated; The  annual production of nickel in the  United States averages close upon  4000 tons, and in 1809. the entire  product, with tho exception of ten  tons, was won from- imported ores.  Jfhe nickel mines of  Sudbury.  ��n  northern   Ontario,   furnished    the  greater part of   this supply,  and  the refining   industry   was  given  ample protection through an   import duty of $120 por short ton on  refined nickel.     So long as these  conditions remained the province  of Ontario stood but little chance  of securing anything like its  full  benefit   from   the   working  of its  nickel deposits.   Ten months ago,  however,;   Ontario's   premier    announced as  a new feature  of liis  policy, ��� such  amendments  to   the  mining laws as  would  conduce  to  the refining of Ontario's  nickel  iu  Canada.   This was given shape in  the following session of the legislature, when an export duty of six  cents per pound was placed upon  all nickel contained in copper-nickel  shipped   from   Ontario to   United  States refineries ;  and this act will  be enforced as soon as the Nickel-  Copper Compauy of Hamilton is in  shape to do business.  AVriAT an object lesson this  should be to the members of the  Dunsmuir government. AVhat an  inducement for them to follow in  the footsteps of Ontario's progressive premier. For years the province of Ontario "permitted its  nickel resources to bo used to feed  and maintain tho refinery interests  of the stato of New Jersey, aud  when the'people complained they  were met with assurances, from  the American owners of Ontario  nickel deposits, that tho condition  could not be changed for the reason  that the refining processes used in  New Jersey' could not be used in  Canada. This would havo blocked  niost statesmen, but -it -did not  deter premier Jloss. Nc i>roceeded  upon the line that the best way to  secure the refining -of ���" Ontario's  nickel in Canada was to make it  profitable to carry on such refining  in the Dominion. He saw that the  United-States preserved its local  market for United States refineries  with an import duty of $120 per  ton on refined- nickel, and he proposed to foster Canadian refineries  by giving them their raw nickel  just $120 per ton cheaper than they  could secure it in the United  States. He did it by his export  duty on nickel contents.  The result will probably be that  Ga^no^l^/wjll^supplant the   United  way. Canada has tho nickel de.  posits, and the process of the Canadian compnn3r for its extraction  being more economical, it follows should do tho business.  This shows what a government can  do, when it really tries to foster  industries.  Tiik Conservatives of Westminster district are, evidently, hard up  for a candidate to make the race  against Aulay Morrison, Liberal.  They havo tendered the nomination  to judge Hole, and A'ery considerately-adjourned for ten days, to  give the judge time to consider the  proposition. This is tho kind of  politics the Tapper-Mackintosh  crowd wanted to play in Yale-  Cariboo, but the men avIio elect candidates Avould haA'e none of it.  States in the manufacture of ^nickel  and its combinations. This is the  opinion of the Mining and Engineering Journal. It is only reasonable  that it should work   out in  this  d.E.

E.FRENCH  PRESENTS  & Drew's  Theatre Co,  I_ST   BBPEETOIEE  CHANGE   OF   PLAY NIGHTLY  POPULAR    PRICES  Terra rank and file of the Liberal  party would not have Smith Curtis  as their candidate, and they gave  tho nomination to Hig "Hill" G'alH-  her of Nelson. The rank and file  of the Conservative party would  not havo Charles 11. Mackintosh as  their candidate, and they gave the  nomination to A. II. MacNeill of  Rossland. Roth candidates are  party men of more than average independence. Either would do honor  to the constituency. Neither can  bo classed as an enemy of the men  who Avork for wages. Tho interests  of the men who work for wages are  identical with those who carry on-  the business enterprises of the constituency, and no good reason can  bo given why the constituency  should be represented at Ottawa by  a man avIio is not sufficiently broad-  minded to look after the interests  of all the people.  TirK recent Liberal-Conservative  convention   at Revelstoke did not  do as the leaders of the party Avant-  od it to do.    Sir Charles Tupper  Avanted the nomination to go to a  man named  Mackintosh, .and   his  wish   Avas   echoed   by   the   Coast  leaders of the party.   The Avishes  of the leaders were   ignored, and  Price Ellison of Vernon spoke the  sentiments  of a largo majority of  the delegates present, when he said,  tliat for one, he did not intend to  A'ote,  as a  delegate, for auy man  who did not take enough interest in  the party's welfare to attend the  convention, and that the convention  AA'ould not, AA'ith his approval, offer  the nomination to anyone Avho was  not   present   at   the    convention.  This   outspoken   declaration   very  effectually  squelched  the  element  that was secretly working to carry  out the wishes of sir Charles Tupper.    The effort that is now being  made in Rossland to bring out, a  Labor candidate is a part of the  Tupper-Maekintosh scheme.   Mackintosh was not even nominated in  the Revelstoke convention and the  Labor candidate will be equally nn:  suce^s^fnlf'fol^th^meh^wlro'belieA'eT  in labor organizations in Kootenay  will not allow their unions to be  dragged in the mire of party politics merely to serve tho ambitious  schemes of a few discredited politicians and tricky labor union men  who, for the time, sojourn at Rossland.  w  ffl  ffl  :_Q&&$PP& ^^���^^^^^���-^^^S'-S^^S"-S^^'-5i'-^^S'^^^^"-2:  ���SS^.^-.^-s^V^T&.^j.^T&.f,,.^.. ^tt.^.^t.^mtT^, 019- 0'0l^_i191919191}Si'  '^_'^-i  ffl  ffl  ffl  ffl  iti  iti  to  to  ffl  to  iti  to  to  to  to  to  w  IRED  IRVINE &_  CO  NEW FALL GOODS ARRIVING DAILY  - LADIES' GOLF CAPES IN ALL THE LEADING PLAIDS  NEW DRESS MATERIAL SUITINGS IN ALL THE LATEST SHADES  FLANNEL AND CASHMERE BLOUSE WAISTS  DRESSING JACKETS, WOOL SHAWLS, UNDERSKIRTS, ETC.

An attempt was  made to deliver Nelson and Slocan  ridings; but thesensible labor men  in theso two ridings turned down  the Martin gang of "heelers." Now  the "heelers" arc trying to get 0ATen  with'the men that turned them  down; but the sensible labor men  of Nelson and the Slocan will not  allow themselves to be made cats-  paws to pull chestnuts out of the  fire for either Smith Curtis or  Charles 11. Mackintosh.  C'AXninATK Gaujiii.i. is to be  clubbed to death because he dared  aspire to an office that certain Rossland leaders of the Labor Unions-  wanted for Smith Curtis. During  the last provincial campaign it Avas  an open secret that these leaders  had a deal on with Joseph Alartin  for the delivery of all the seats in  Kootenay.     But the goods could  Ralph Smith , is likely to be the  candidate of the Labor party in  Nanaimo. In that constituency  the Labor men have a good chance  to win, and few men in Canada are  more worthy of support than Ralph  Smith, for he is a sensible friend of  the men avIio .-work for wages and  can always be depended on to stand  up for tlieir interests.  Jaaii.k. Wilks has taken the  Miner into his confidence, and he  tells that subsidy-hunting newspaper that the Labor party will  have a candidate in tho field. He  also tells tho s. h. n. that Trn? Tn.111-  VNl. does not Icuoav Avhat it is talking about in stating that the Labor  Unions of Nelson' will not lend- their  assistance to the Rossland gang of  Labor politicians who first tried to  force Smith Curtis on the Liberal  party, and afterwards, tried to do  the same trick oh the" Conservative  party with Charles IT. Mackintosh.  The Labor Unions of Nelson and  the Slocan will not stand tho work  of the Rossland gang.. The work  is too coarse.         The fine Italian of Joseph Martin is at work in this constituency.  Rig "Bill" Galliher, as one of the  delegates to the Vancouver Liberal  convention last May, helped "knock''  Joe ; and Joseph is quietly-returning the compliment through his  "trusties" in -Rossland.

Now that there is no reason for  keeping quiet the scmultils of the  ring, which really caused the legislature to kill the Horton law, under  whicli lighting flourished, many  stories of irregularities are coming  lo the surface. One of them explains the mysterious ability to  strike a terrific blow by the slender  Kid McCoy. According to those  who should know, it all came from  his method of bandaging his hands.  These persons say that the young  lloosief without bandages on his  hands could hit no harder than any  other man of his. weight. An illustration of hi.s methods is said to  have occurred in his battle with  Peter Maher. Jn that fight Maher  went down and unmistakably out  under a blow that did not seem to  spectators to have great force back  of it. Afterwards Maher said it  seemed to him he had: been struck  with a chunk of lead.   He was not  'far-wrong. Before entering the  ring to meet -Maher, McCoy drove  ��� all persons from his room except  George Considine, who put on the  bandages. These bandages consisted of heavy and wide strips of canvas, thickly coated withan adhesive  substance, which quickly hardened.  Tlio canvas was wound round and  round McCoy's hands, uutil across  each set of knuckles was raised a  ridge quite half an inch thick.  The coating on tho canvas hardened, and the fighter wore a protection to his hands that: weighed as  much, as iron aud which was almost  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skajofuay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  as hard. Little wonder that Maher  thought that he had been -sandbagged when McCoy hit him. It  was 'remarkable-that ".Mahor was  not permanently disabled; as he was  struck a powerful blow, and McCoy's fist was,with its incasings,  =heavy=oriough==to=have=4>rokenHiis;  ;jaw.  Mrs. .Tames J. Corbett is proving  the adage that "Hell hath no fury  like a woman scorned." Her charge  that tho fight between her pompadour spouse and McCoy was a fake  is so corroborated in detail by McCoy's wife that New York in general is prone to believe that Jim's  victory over tho clever Hoosier was  prearrrnged. Mrs. Corbett further  startled the sporting world recently  by declaring that tho last fight between Corbett aud Sharkey was a  pre-arranged affair, and that Mc-  Voy, one of Corbett's trainers, was  paid $2000 for jumping into the  ring and forcing the referee to give  a decision in Sharkey's favor. She  says that she drew the cheque herself, and believes she can produce  the paper to substantiate her story,  ���if need be. Mrs. McCoy had this to  say in - reference to the misssng  "Kiel," who has sued her for divorce  and whom she has also sued:  "The act of my husband in absenting himself and not pressing his  suit or defending mine shows he is  a craven. It. shows who is the  guilty party. It was this ^morning  that I discovered the full measure  of .his depravity and lack of manhood. He took from the vault in  New Amsterdam,,, where it was for  safe keeping, $10,000 worth of  jewelry and valuables given to me  by my first husband, William IS.  Graselmire. In the box also were  storage cheques for my sealskins,  which are very valuable. I have  not yet learned whether he has  secured these."
