NELSON:  FRTDAY MORNING SEPTEMBBR 21  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  STEWART NVER  PLACERS  Now Receiving Attention.  Vancouver, September 20.���The  hi sfc issue of the Yukon Sun says:  .'Tom  Honey, Georgo Gordon and'  TfaiTy Thompson havo arrived at  D��iw_on   -from.--tho Stewart   river  country.       They   traveled   pretty  well  all  over, and are  more  than  pleased with all  they saw.   About  r>00 miuers  will  winter thero, and  the country will be pretty thoroughly prospected.   Owing to the  damp nature of the country, summer prospecting is mado very difficult.    The flies are reported as bad.  Game of overy description is very  plentiful, and no. lack of fresh meat  Avill  be felt.    The, party .amongst;  other   things   enjoyed    bear    and  moose moat,-while, fish, ducks, etc.,  wore to bo had on every hand.    Mr.  Kurwash   journeyed   to  the head  waters of the  McQuesten  in  company   with   Tom   Heney.       They  visited" Dublin gulch and all  the  working . creeks.     Although  nothing startling has as yet beeii struck,  still  all  the  party  are   convinced  that before the coming winter lias  passed a good  strike will  bo made,  and all that has been  predicted for  this    country   will     be     verified.  Dredging ou tho  bars will  be carried   on   very   extensively.    ' This  form of mining has been most successful throughout the headwaters  of the Fraser, and  iu fact all  over  the Cariboo country.    Several large  syndicates have representatives and  engineers  on  the   Upper   Stewart,  who will   report  on   tlieir findings  very shortly.  HEART - TO - HEART TALKS  . Witli British Electors.  Loxnox, September 20.���The  manifesto of Joseph Chamberlain,  secretary of "state for the colonies  and lnember of parliament for  West Birmingham, has been issued  to his constituency. ISe says:  "Our opponents assert that wo deliberately provoked a war for  which we had made no preparation. The first statement is untrue, and tho second greatly exaggerated. Tho war was forced on  us by a sudden invasion, while the  negotiations, which were conducted  with tho greatest meditation on  our part, were proceeding." Mr.  Chamberlain then reviews the  causes of tho war briefly and the  immense and successful exertions  of the war oflico at considerable  length.  Arthur J. Balfour, first lord of  tho treasury and government leader  in the house of commons, says in  the courso of his manifesto to tho  electors of'.blast Lothian and: Ross-  shire, that the Boers base a hope  that the war in South Africa may  be fruitless to the victors on the  -poRsible=advent'of=the=home=rulersx  to power. ._ c,  NO DEFINITE ACTION TAKEN  Ey Labor Unionists.  No definite action was taken by  the N'elson Trades and Labor Council last night with regard to placing-  a candidate in the field to contest  the aproaching . dominion election.  The meeting last night was well attended and much of the evening  was spent in discussing the question of Chinese labor in Xelson and  other points of importance to or-  organized labor.  A communication was read from  the Minors' Union at Ymir, recommending the council to endorse tho  action of the Rossland union in regard to a labor candidate, and suggesting a convention of organized  labor representatives in Nelson at  an early date. The matter camo up  for discussion at7a late hour, and  the council concluded to leave the  question open until Tuesday night,  Avhen further consideration will be  giyon. The date suggested for the  convention is October Oth.  United States Casualties.  Manila, September 20.--A .corrected list of the casualties sustained by the American soldiers on  Monday last, in the engagement at  Sinoloa, situated at the east of La-  guna de Bay, between a force of  1000 Filipinos and detachments of  the 15th and 17th United States  iufautry regiments, shows that 24  men are dead, including .three who  have died from the effects of their  wounds "since the fighting, aud tho  missing, and that 19 are wounded  including captain J. B. Moran, of  company "L" of the 37th regiment.  The total number of "Americans engaged is now announced at 13-1.  The cneiny's casualties have not  been reported.  STRIKERS ARMY INCREASES  Complete Suspension Predicted.  Hazel/ton,    Pennsylvania,   September 20.���In the absence of president   Mitchell   from   headquarters  today,   Benjamin   James,   who   is  next in charge of the striko in this  region,   issued   the   daily bulletin  from   the    United    Mine-Workers  headquarters.      It   is   as    follows:  "The reports received at headquarters today have been most  gratifying.    liar wood,  Coleraine and  the  Star   washery at   Udenreid,   shut  down this morning, the men deciding   la.st>'evening   to   .strike with  their fellow men.    This  is . a gain  for the mine workers.   At Jeddo,  where John Markle tried to inftehce  the men to  go back to work, they  remained   firm.      Eight    hundred  . more men are on strike in this  district today than  on  any previous  day during tho strike.    The suspension in the  Wyoming  and  Lackawanna valleys is now complete, the  only mine  which  worked the fore  part of tho week being closed,    lie-  ports from district No. 0 (the lower  anthracite)  show there   has   been  large   accessions    to   the   strikers  ranks,  great inroads having  been  made on the Philadelphia &  Heading employees.   The situation over  the entire anthracite  field is such  that we have evory reason  to believe that in a few days the suspension will be general throughout the  three districts."  Paii.aoei.pmia, September 20.���  Everything quiet and orderly i.s the  report that comes from tho strike  region. A few more mino workers  joined the strikers' ranks today,  but not many.- The temper of the  mine owners- on- .the question _.o��.  arbitration is _��� indicated in interviews and statements given out today, very much against the proposition. Nevertheless, lather Phillips came hero from tho Hazelton  region tonight and is with  archbishop Ryan in consultation on  the subject of the quick settlement of the strike by arbitration or  any other honorable means. Protestant clergymen in Ha/.Ieton havo  also taken up the matter, and Avill  endeavor to bring the opposing elements together amicably. Coal  scarcity is more keenly felt today,  aud although the Reading company  is mining and shipping its usual  quota r>. anthracite, dealers are  finding it hard to get as much as  they need. Tho tonnage of the  other great coal carrying companies  is gradually diminishing, and in  the natural order of things, unless  the strike is sottled will soon  cease  altogether from this district.  THE LAW AND THE COURTS  Miner's Suit for Wages.  Argument was heard yesterday  before the supreme court of British  Columbia in the appealed suit of  Anderson a's Godsal in which the  plaintiffs-sought to recover wages  for work performed at the Little  Phil mine near Ainsworth. The  outcome of the case has been  awaited with keen interest, because  of tho fact that the decision would  establish a precedent on the point  as to whether development work in  a mine is an improvement within  the meaning of the Mechanics' Lien  Act. The judges were evenly divided on the appeal yesterday, and  the case will havo to be reargued  before five supreme court judges.  Sheriff Tuck has seized the.Sylvia  mineral claim on the summit-of Jim  Crow mountain and the Royal  Irish at the head of Sandy creek to  satisfy a judgment of $134 secured  by John Hirsch against George  SI. G. O'Driscoll. The claims are  aunouueed for sale on the 29th inst.  Forty Passengers Lost.  London, September 20.���A dispatch from Athens to Lloyds, giving further details of the disaster  to the Egyptian mail steamer Char-  kieh, now ashore ou the Island of  Andros, one of the Cyclades, says  that forty of th�� passengers and  crew were drowned.  RUSSIA NO LONGER TRUSTED  Morrison's Suspicions Confirmed.  London,   September    21.���Such  Pekin   dispatches  as   appear   this  morning tend to confirm tho suspicions  regarding   tho attitude of  Russia   already expressed by  Dr.  Morrison, the correspondent of the  Times at tho capital.    The Daily  News   prints   a   telegram,   almost  identical with the advices to the  Daily Express from Pekin, but adding that in the opinion of the correspondent the Russians only desire to induce tho othor powers to  AvithdraAv.      The   Morning   Post's  Pekiu  representative, wiring September 13th, expresses   the   same  opinion,   lie declares   that M.  de  Giers will not  go unless the other  ministers   go   also.     The Russian  legation, ho asserts, had prepared  to go, bnt reversed   its  determination  pending further  instructions.  This delay ho thinks is due in all  probability to the non-departure of  the other legations.  "General Chaffee," continues this  correspondent, "has directed a distribution of rice to the poor. This  plan is a good one but its application is somejvhat premature. What  is ehiofly needed is.security of trade  so that necessities' may be purchased."  "The American commander has  expressed his disapproval of further  expeditions against the Boxers.  The indecision exhibited in this respect is only sham. The settlement  is not possible until the Boxers and  their official accomplices are vanquished. Numerous schemes arc on  foot for catching the Boxer leaders,  but tho task is very difficult as they  always keep out of the way.  BELCIANS CET THEIR MONEY  Out of Dominican Bonds.  Santo Dominoo, September 20.���  Tho Belgian consul has notified his  government by cable that he has  received $350,000, in addition to the  sums previously received, "from "the  goA'ernment of San Domingo on  account of the Belgian bondholders,  and that he has resolved to deposit  the funds collected, after deducting  tho amount of the Belgian government's outlays, for the final settlement between tho parties interested.  Belgians hold $0,000,000 dollars of  Dominican bonds. ' They recently,  notified the government of San  Domingo that they Avould not accept the contract made with the  Santo Dominican Improvement  Company, proA'iding for a commission to adjust tho matters in dispute. The American minister at  the same time Avas notified by the  Dominican government that the interests of tho American bondholders would bo protected.  Tho C. P. R. Award.  ^^Winniprq���Sepfcombor_20."=Rol)~  ert Strang, the deciding arbitrator  selected to settlo the question of  tho Canadian -Pacific Railway  machinists' wages, in .connection  with the recent strike, has givon  his decision as follows: "The men  from Fort William to Laggau to receive au increase in 'pay of 2  cents per hour. The men from Laggau to Kamloops, both points ex-  clusiA'o, and West Kootenay  to receive 1 cent increase.  The men from Kamloops to Vancouver to receive two cents advance.  The rates for young men avIio havo  just completed their apprenticeship  in the company's shops, aud all  new men engaged, will be on the  basis of tho schedule hitherto pre-  A'ailing, but tho term of probation  Avill hereafter be six months, instead of one year, for new men, and  one year instead of two for young  men avIio have just completed their  apprenticeship.  Getting His Ore on Hand.  Greenwood, September 20.���  Paul Johnson, superintendent of  the Greenwood smelter,.:.is..arranging to have ore shipped from the  Mother Lode next week. There is.  nothing new so far as the smelter is  concerned, as all the plant has not  yet been shipped, but ore from the  mine will be hauled to the smelter,  so that a good supply will be on  hand as soon as the smelter is  ready to blow in.  Bank of England Dividend.  London, September 20.���At the  semi-annual meeting of the Bank of  England today the governor, Mr.  Stewart Gladstone, announced thab  the. six months' profits were ��727,-  8f50. The usual five per cent dividend AAras declared. During the  meeting cordial ' references were  made to the co-operation of NeAV  York financiers with those of London in managing the issue of the  war loans.   THE UNITEJSTATES POLICY  Will be Announced Tomorrow.  AVashington, Sep!ember 20.���  The status of the Chinese situation  at the close of tiie day, according  to a high authority, is as follows:  "There aro now before the department of stato a "number of notes  awaiting answers. .^These include  tho German note, concerning the  surrender of Chinese ringleaders,  the original Russian proposition  for tho withdrawal of troops from  Pekin, which has not yet been  acted upon as a finality, a memorandum from the Russian government asking as to the purposes of  tho United States government, and  a request by prince Ching that instructions- be sent to minister  Conger to proceed-with peace negotiations at once. In addition there  is a verbal inquiry from the French  government as to the program of  the United States. t  These various communications  havo accumulated' slowly, and an  understanding ��� ,,'h'as now beon  reached by the administration that  there shall be a general clearance of  the subject. This may he ex pec ted  oithor lato tomorrow, or early the  following day ....-It will clearly enunciate the programme of the7 United  States on the various questions presented. "' There Avill be separate  notes, according to the character of  the communications addressed to  this goA'ernment. ��� The German  note-will be ansAA'ored bjr a note,  aud the memorandum of inquiry  from Russia will bo answered by a  memorandum, while tho Krench  verbal inquiiy will receive a A'erbal  response.  As to the contents of these several communications the authorities  are'not willingitq-give any pqsitiA'o  ifftimations,'thorigh as' Far as the  German note is concerned the belief is almost general here that tho  response of the United States government Avill amount to a declination to make the surrender of the  offending Chinese a condition precedent to negotiations of any kind.  Concerning tho Russian proposition  for withdrawal, it is stated officially  that it stands today the same as  first presented, thero having been  no modifications whatever on the  part of HiissiH, up to the present  time.  Washington, September 20.���  Minister Wu has received the edict  issued from Shang-Hai. appointing  the-viceroys of Nanking and Wu-  Chang as part of the Chinese peace  commission. But'in view of the  dispatch received from the A'icoroys  today, tho minister has doubts that  _tJjey_AV_ill_^ej_vo_on_the_j_omniission._  He says, however, that it Avill not  be necessary for them to leave their  present posts and go to- Pekin.  They will be consulted by telegraph,  and thoir concurrence will bo secured in all settlements and their  signatures given to the final peace  agreement. Mr. Wu says he is at a  loss to account for the published  report that his colleague, the Chinese minister at London, denied  that Yung Lu had been appointed'  Avith Li 11 ung Chang as peace en-  A'oy. .Mr. Wu says there ean be no  doubt about the matter as he has  received no imperial edict appointing Yung Lu.

Shen Fang,  thirty miles distant, is the last of  tho Boxers' stronghold near Tien-  Tsin."  MAY MEET COST OF WAR  Out of Mining Concessions.  London, September 21.���The  Standard this morning ��� says ��� it  understands that tho British government has already roceived offers for underground mining rights  in the Transvaal, which will go a  long way toAvard meeting tho cost  of the war.  London, September 20.���Lord  ���Roberts telegraphs from Nelspruit,  Vaal River colony, under date of  Septembor IS, that the town was  occupied on the previous day Avithout opposition. He adds that ho is  in communication Avith general  Buller and is able to send him  supplies. Lord Roberts further  says general Buller reports that the  bulk of his opponents are now mercenaries and Capo Colony rebels.  London,' September 20.���Lord  Roberts cables from Nelspruit, on  the Pretoria-Delagoa Bay railway,  not far from Kooraatipoort, tho  frontier station, under date of  Wednesday, September 19th, as  follows: "Of 3000 Boers Avho retreated from Koomatipoort before  the British advance from Machadodorp, 700 have entered Portuguese territory.others haA'e deserted  in various directions and the  balance are reported to have  crossed the Koomati river, and to  be occupying the spurs of Lebombo  mountain, south of the raihvay.  A general tumult seems to have occurred when they recognized the  hopelessness of their cause. Their  Long Toms and' field guns have  been destroyed and nothing is left  of the Boer army but a few marauding bands. Kelly-Kenny is engaged with oue of these whicli occupies a. position at Doornberg.  WILL SETTLE ALL DISPUTES  Commissioner Martin Leaves.  Victoria;' September 20.���According to information from  Skagway, Mr. justice Mortin, special commissioner to the Porcupine"  district, accompanied by Lewis J.  Seymour, secretary; .1. D.

Vickers of the  British Columbia provincial police  left for that district on Wednesday  last.  Chief of the main objects of the  commission is to confirm aud ratify  the rights of miuers to claims located under the United States laws  in tho strip Avhich has been tho  subject of the modus A'ivondi between Great Britain aud the United  States, thus securing to American  citizens as well as British subjects,  indisputable titles which Avill be  registered with captain Rant, the  sub-mining recorder at Pleasant  Camp, Dal ton trail, after investigation by tho commission.  According to tho public notice already given, the commission commences its session near Porcupine  City, and probably at the camp occupied by the boundary commission  during its work, the first sitting being appointed i'or Saturday, September 15th, at 10 a.m.  11 is expected that the American  miners in the district Avill avail  themselves of this opportunity offered to establish themselves in  their claims, thus placing themselves in an unassailable position  should any dispute as to title arise.  In addition to the foregoing all  mining disputes Avhich aro brought  before tho commission Avill be  promptly and finally dealt with.  Big Amalgamation.  Nrw York, September 20.���In  its forthcoming issue, tho Electrical  RevieAV Avill say that the American  Telephone Exchange, which now  includes the American Bell Telephone Company, the Telephono, the  Telegraph and Cable Company of  America, the Western Union Telegraph Company and the Postal  Telegraph-Cable Company, according to persons in a position to  know, Avill be consolidated into one  big company, to bo known as the  National Telephono S_ Telegraph  Company.

NO  COMPROMISE  SOUCHT  In the Coal Miners' Strike.  Hazlkton, Pennsylvania, September 20.���There was little activity today around the United  Mine Workers' headquarters, from  whicli place the coal miners strike  is being directed. Most of the  union officials spent the day in the  J outlying towns, meeting the strikers and giving them instructions.  No OA'er tures have been advanced  on cither side, and there is at  present no indication that auy will  be put forth soon. The strike officials aro still at work getting the  men out, aud they say they will not  cease their activity iii that respect'  until every operation in the anthracite region is tied up.'  The operators' though badly  crippled are.today as confident of  success as they -, have heretofore  been. ������ The production of coal in  the Hazelton region is groAA'iug  smaller each succeeding day. One  of the best proofs of this is the report of the superintendent of the  Hazleton division of the Lehigh  Valley railroad, which handles' the  coal from all but sixcolleries in this  region. This report shows that the  shipments havc fallen off to less  than tAvo thirds of the normal  quantity during tho past four days.  'There is no denying the fact that  the inhabitants of this region fear  trouble. Most, if not all, of the  coal mines are protected by_ extra  watchmen. Rumors areafloafthat  the sheriffs of. Luzerne,' ��� Schuylkill  aud Carbon counties, which adjoin,  each other at-'a- point two miles  south of here, are swearing in depu-  . ties, by the. score. ' 'When the sher-  ifls are'approached on the subject  they say. there is no trouble, and  that they are not. lookiug for any.  Certain it is, however, that these  officers are keeping a watchful eye  on the situation, and they can be  quickly found if their presence is  needed anywhere.  Number forty shaft of the Lehigh Valley Coal Company, east of  this city, was the center of numerous petty acts of violence during  the day. Before six o'clock this  morning a handful of Hungarian  Avomen wanted to whip three coal  and iron 'policemen for persuading  breaker boys to go to work. The  police, however, managed to get out  of their difficulty  Avithout  a fight.  Shortly after that a mine worker  says he was shot at by an unknown  person, but not hit, Avhile on his  way to the shaft.    1 .ater in th_e_day_  an Italian was badly clubbed. Tonight two of the mine workers on  their Avay home from the shaft  Ave re attacked and badly beaten.  Asido from these incidents, quiet  prevails throughout the region.  The striking mine Avorkers say they  are doing their best to prevent disturbances.  ALBERT WESTFALL  KILLED  In the War Eagle Mine.  ��� Rossland, September 20.���Albert  Westfall, a diamond drill operator  employed in the War Eagle mine,  was instantly killed at 2 o'clock  this afternoon by being struck by  the skip. He was standing on a  platform near the 250 foot level,  Avhen the skip was coming down  the shaft. Apparently not noticing  its approach, he carelessly stuck his  head out to look down where foreman Warden Avas, a few feet below  him, and was hit by the full force  of the skip. His neck was fractured. Westfall was a natiA*e of  Oregon, and was about 32 or 33  years of age.   He leaves no family.  Tho C. P. R. Bluff.  Montreal, September 20.���The  Canadian Pacific railway has notified the dominion government that  unless some arrangements for mutual benefit can become operative between it and the Inter-Colonial (government) railway, thoy  will bo compelled to make Boston  their winter terminus.  pun-.j^l  AMERICA HAS HOT REPLIED  To the German Note. &  Berlin, September 20.���Aii offi-'/��  cial of the German foreign office1,*' ���tot},  whom a reporter of-the Assoc, n ted'''��'  Press showed a London dispatclij;,X  which sets forth that the United^  States had refused to accede to' the,'?)  propositions of Germany to postal  pone peace negotiates with Chinajl  until .the officials responsible 'f6r|j.  the outrages at Pekin are delivered^  up to the allies and punished," reV-,3.  plied that the German foreign t.ffice^f  had no such information.

Nkw York, September 20.���Sen-  K. Jones has loft for Chicago. The  situation in the east is very favorable for the election of Mr. Bryan.  It has wonderfully improved since  I was last here. The situation in tho  state ia excellent so far as Mr.  Bryan and the state ticket are concerned. The condition in the states  of Connecticut and Now Jersey exceeds the expectations [had before;  this, my last visit, and I am hopeful that-Mr. Bryan will carry these-  states. I am sure that he will carry  West Virginia and Maryland, and I  might say that Delaware can safely:  be placed in the Democratic^ column.  IT. S. Troops Must Remain.

Tho  wages for the laboi' in the winning  should come out of the coal.    If the  stato will   fix  the  minimum wage,  the coal operators will sec to it that  the consumers and not themselves  pay.     Consumers  of   coal   are.no  more entitled to the preference  of  securing it under cost than are the  consumers of any other commodity  to   like   preference.     This   is   the  principle of the New Zealand Arbitration Act, which is now receiving  attention in the districts affected  by the strike.   Had it been in force  there would not be the large army  of toilers face-to-face' with want;  business      interests       throughout  several states would not be .jeopardized; nor would tho .-million .'-consumers  be forced at  tho   present  time to pay a famine price for coal.  That Charles 11. Mackintosh of  Rossland was not nominated at  .iovolslo.ee was not because ho did  hot want the nomination. lie  wanted it, and wanted it handed  to him. Ifc did not got the nomination simply because a large majority of the delegates would not  have it that way. ITow about Mr.  Mackintosh's telegram advising the  convention to adjourn withont  making a nomination? Probably  the Miner of Nelson, which is now  supposed to be supporting the Conservative nominee aud at the same  time trying to make a "subsidy I  deal" with tho Liberals, will explain  why Mr. Mackintosh sent that  telegram.  Coi.oni.i. Drcxisox, police magistrate of Toronto, has unearthed a  lawyer who charged a woman $474  for collecting an account of $511.  The woman considered that it was  a case of theft. She laid a charge  accordingly, bub when it came to  the crown prosecutor he said it was  nob theft, but simply legal charges.  two candidates nominated. The  one newspaper excepted is a- daily  published at Nelson by a genial old  gentleman who imagines he lives in  Mud alley.  Ir llarbarian 'Brown, of Greenwood, gets all he thinks he will out  of the British government, he will  bo a wealthy man. Brown says ho  filed on some mineral land in the  Transvaal, in accordance with the  regulations of the government, but  after receiving his -money president  Kruger declined to deliver the  goods. IJrown secured a judgment  of $1,8.12,000 against the Transvaal,  wliich lie was'unable to collect, but  which.lift says tho 'British government will now pay.  If  Off.  .lie Coal Supply Were Cut  Toronto World.  We are not prepared to say'it  would  not be good "policy on the  part of Canada to put a. high duty  on anthracite coal.    Canada is not  without  resources of  its  own.    A  high duty on coal would compel the  delinquent Ontario  government to  develop Niagara I'Yills  power and  make it accessible for all  Western  Ontario;     Thousands   of   tons   of  coal   are .'imported   into   Toronto  every week to run our trolley ears,  light our streots, pump our,, water  and perform similar services. There  is no reason  why a pound  of coal  for  these  purposes should  bo imported,    rf the government would  allow the power available at Niagara, Palls to be utilized, the number of   coal   trains   running from  Buffalo into Canada would decrease  50 por cent.    As for coal for domestic   uses,   a   duty  on  tho   United  States   product   would  develop   a  trade between tho maritime ports  and western Ontario.  ^'^i&C'.eee^C^^^^eeee^c^^^^^^^^  Xif _  iti  iti  ffl  to  to  to  iti  iti  to  to  iti  iti  to  to  to  to  vii  to  to  to  iti  w,  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.

The  Detroit Tribuno suggests that the  present trouble has its root in tho  system  under   which   the   United  States develops its '.mineral, rosour- 1  ocs.    It contends that the policy is  not sound wliich permits tho natural wealth of the country to pass  uuder the domination of trusts, and  holds up for tho guidance of tho  United States the system  of Mexico, where the title to coal lands remains vested in the state, and operators work as  lessees,  with forfeiture conditions, one of which  is  incessant work.   It is easy to see  that under snch- conditions a protracted strike would be avoided by  lessees, but with, respect to   the  United States the comparison misses  the mark since-the coal lands hare  already passed into private owner-  ship. ________  What is required in the. present  instance is some machinery���'-for  bringing together the coal barons  and their striking employees, and  after this some restriction upon the  coal operators which will curtail  their power not only to say how  little they shall pay to the men who  Win the coal, but how much those  AiiTj the newspapers in the pro-  ^Ln_20j__gxcep_tj3ne,=that^eoinmentecL|  on the nominations made in  this  constituency by the Liberals aud  the Conservatives, spoke fair of the  ANIMATED  PHOTOGRAPHS  ,NA^AT.i^AriT.rrA'ltY=^COMie^Sr01l-TLNTCI=  ANP   DRAMATIC.

General Brugerc  and  'the   genoial   stall'   on   horseback,  stationed themselves   in   front of  the Tribune, and nt a  given signal,  tlio   march  past began.     Brigade  after brigade of infantry aud artillery   rolled   by   and   the   cavalry  followed.   Later tho wholo mass of  artillery advanced together, unlim-  boreil, and ill led a salve of honor.  Tho   entire   eighty squadrons    of  cavalry then trotted into place, the  artillery facing the Tribune.  General Rrugere, with general  Negrier ou his right, and general  Tanehot on his left, took up a position in the centre of the long "line,  a nd led a grand charge to the foot  of the -Tribune, thus endiniy the  I proceedings.  General Andre., later, at luncheon.  |said: "I am proud to feel myself  J,instilled in proclaiming before you  j that the army you have just reviewed is almost solid, well trained,  well equipped, and ripe for success;  land on whose valor tho country can  I absolutely roiy.

The efforts of the board of trade  to secure a mail clerk on the Crow's  Nest road, between Medicine Hat  and Nelson, having been successful,  it is now proposed to agitate for  further improvements in tlio service. Despite the fact that soveral  changes have been mado with a  view to its improvement, there aro  still   a   couple   of  features which  might easily be improved.    At the  present timo there is a daily train  service out of Medicine Hat, but  the mail is only taken out six days  in the week.     The result is that  one of the most important mails  =fr.om=the.east=is=held=over=for=2<l=  hours.   Still worse from the standpoint of the business mon in the  Boundary district is the fact that  no mails are carried on the Columbia ��fc Western.    In consequence of  this   two   eastern   mails    for   the  Boundary are delayed, those arriving at Nelson on Saturday night,  and those at Medicine Hafc on Sunday morning.   The board of trade  endeavor to secure for Kootenays a  daily through mail service over an  all-Canadian  route.     The Calgary  board  is to take  tho question up  also.  THE   MILLER   CONCERT.

It will be of interest to Nelsonites  to learn that S. S. Taylor, Q. C, of  this city, was a classmate and intimate friend of Webster Davis, assistant secretary of the interior for  tho United States, who has gained  great notriety during the last few  flays through the charge that lie  solicited recruits iu the United  States to fight m the ranks of the  Doer forces a gainst the British.  In isSOandJSS7 Mr. Taylor was  a student at tho University of  Michigan. Davis attended the  samo institution, and the two were  room mates, and presidents of rival  university societies. During this  period they formed a friendship  which lasted for several years after  thoir school days ended.  Mr. Taylor describes Davis as a  quiet, self-contained chap, with  ability which caused hiiii to be  .acknowledged as tho cleverest  student of the 3000 atthe university." Davis had a genius for oratory, and Mr. Taylor believes that  tho anti-English views Avhich  led him to espouse the Boer- cause,  were the growth of years.
