The government lias made an appropriation  i'or a recorder's office in the district, and it has been decided that  the building will be located at  Creston.. The present office is at  Kuskonook, but as the government  does not own tho premises the  opportunity will-be taken to move  the office to a point which is regarded as more central. The  White Grouse section, in which  most of the mining of the district  is done, is tributary to Creston,  hence the change.-������"  A meeting of the shareholders of  the Venus miue took place at the  company's office on Baker street  yesterday. A large amount of  stock was represented. The bylaw to empower the directors to  raise money was passed. Dr; P. E.

John McKaue,  of   Rossland,  re-  'turned to the city yesterday after a  yiait    to     the   Lardo    properties  operated by the Lavina-Butte Consolidated   Mining Company.     The  company has ten men at work on  the   Iron   Cap   claim,  one of   the  Lavina group, on the east side of  the lake, eight miles above Argenta.  About 11)00 feet of work has  beon  done, and the crew is now engaged  in driving a tunnel to tap the vein  at a depth of 250 feet.    The tunnel  is in 300 feet and the lead should be  reached 50 feet  further on.     The  ledge on the Iron Cap averages well  up to six feet, twelve  inches  being  in clean shipping ore and  the ^balance in concentrates.    A trial shipment of ten tons was made recently  to the Hall Mines smelter. The consignment netted.$42 per  ton  after  paying all charges including $15 a  ton for packing to Argenta.     The  comptiny could ship a large amount  of clean ore during  the  next few  .months, but prefer .to devote their  attention   exclusively   to  development.  An appropriation of $.'.000 has  been secured for a wagon road  wliich will reach the Lavina-Butte,  Lost Mountain, Clinton and other  properties iu the district. Work  will be started on the road on  October 15th. Tlio Lost Mountain  people are figuring on shipping during the wiuter but have not announced their decision on the point  as yet.    A fine specimen of ore from the  Silver Hill claim, owned by the  London & Richelieu compauy, is on  exhibition at Vanstone's drug store.  The ore is silver-lead, carrying  large copper values, and the"sample  shown is exceptionally high 'grade,  having aggregate values of $400.  J Theodore ..Beauchamp, the com:  pau.y's engineer, commenced yester-  ~day to" survey the line for the  aerial tramway at the Silver' Hill.  - Construction will be carried on  .next'spring: The plan of development mapped out for "the mine includes the construction of a main  tunnel 1000 feet or more long, to  which all the drifts will center, and  in which' the ore will be handled in  gravity tramears to the aerial  tramway at the mouth.  W. P. Borland, vice-president of  the Juno Mining Company, left last  night ou his return trip to Montreal. En route he will stay over  iu the Lake of the Woods district,  where .a stamp mill-is being installed on a property iu which he is  -largely interested. The plan  adopted for the development of the  Juno group provides for an S00-  l'oot tunnel commencing just above  the Venus line and following tho  Venus lead to the point where  the  ' main Juno ledge intersects at a  depth of 400 to 500 feet. A crew  of teu.Rieu go to the Juno today  and. proceed with the erection of  the necessary buildiugs. -The management will develop the property,  and if it turns out as promising as  they anticipate the balance of the  stock will be taken up by the present holders, among whom are sev-  . eral prominent Montrealers. M. S.  Logan, managing director, will be  located in Rossland for this winter,  but expects to spend several days  in Nelson each week. ���-������������  through the district yesterday aud  states that the commencement of  work on the mining propositions of  the section tributary to Slocan  City has benefited the dealers  materially, and the prospect for  further improvement is bright. W.  D. Shatford & Co., general dealers,  have purchased a lot at $1000 in  the center of the town, on which  they will erect a new store at once.  CLOSINCliJE MABOU DEAL  Arlington to Ship.  R. I. Kirkwood, of Slocan City,  the pioneer prospector on Springer  aud Ten-mile creeks, is in the city  iu connection with an important  mining deal. He is closing up a  bond on the Mabou group to J.  Frank Collom, general manager of  the Arlington company. The  terms are $05,000, five percent payable in three months, five per cent  in nine months, aud the balance in  twelve months, the holders of the  bond to work the property continuously after December 4th.  The group includes the Mabou,  Ohio, Empress Fraction and Summit Fraction, and is located on the  summit of the divide between  Springer and Ten-mile creeks." The  owners are Mr. Kirkwood, F. A.  Wells, Andrew Tunics, George Williamson, Duncan P. Grant and Mrs.  E. C. Smitheringale. Some $8000  has been spent by the owners in  tunnelling aud surface work: There  are five leads carrying dry silver  ore, tAvo of which are very- large.-  One is a continuation of the lead on  the Neepawa group, recently bonded  to the Warner-Miller syndicate for  $30,000. This "ledge is from 10 to 25  feet in width. The second strong  lead passes over the divide from  the Arlington property, lt is 5 to  15 feet in width, and carries 100  ounces ot silver besides small lead,  gold and copper values.  The Mabou group is bounded on  .the south by the Enterprise and on  the. west"vby->the,J��eepawa. -./The  Speculator group on the'Ten-mile  side of the divide was bonded a  month ago to J. Frank Collom at  $55,000, aud a crew of 35 men is  now at work building a camp.  J. Frank Cullom, manager of the  Arlington mine, is in the city ou  business. The Arlington is easily  among the most promising properties in the Slocau City district, and  is to ship steadily when the transportation facilities are completed.  Several carloads of ore were  shipped this week. Work on the  company's offices at Slocan City  aud at the miue will be started  within a short time.  Joseph Werner, one of the locators and present owners of the  Valparaiso group on Goat creek, has  been in the city for several days  and left yesterday for the property.  He has just returned from St. Louis,  Missouri, where he interested several  capitalistsin-British Columbia-mining propositions, Mr.. Werner confirms the report of the recent strike  on the Valparaiso, stating that- it  consists of a five foot ledge of oxide,  hematite and sulphides, the assays  from which range from $18 to $165.  TheJead is free milling on the surface and will pan gold at any point.  The Valparaiso group includes the  Government, O K, No. 3 and Starter  claims, and is only a couple of miles  from the lake giving favorable shipping facilities. During the -winter  a crew of 15'men will be worked,  and some ore may be shipped, development being sufficiently advanced to enable the property to  ship steadily in moderate quantities.  The recent strike was made on the  130-foot level, and it is uow proposed to drift in 700 or 800 feet to  tap the lead at a depth of 350 feet.  Work will also be done on the upper  level. The Imperial Mining Company is operating a property 1400  feet above the Valparaiso group,  and has nine men at work.  Conservatives Nominate Bryden. .

London, September 28.���The' only  dispatch of special interest from  China this morning 19 the following  from Dr. Moriison, of the Times,  dated Pekin, September 21st: "The  recent punitive expeditions have  had an excellent effect in increasing security, and facilitating the  entry of supplies, but nothing can  be counted as effective until Pao  Ting Fu has been razed and the for-  eigneers aud refugees at Cheng Ting  and other places known to the generals are rescued."  "M. De Geirs has addressed a  memorial to the empress dowager  offering her the protection of  Russia, and rerinesting her to return to Pekin. Forty Chinese officials haye sent a memorial to the  empress and emperor, beseeching  them to return.  - The conflicting interests of  Russia aud Great Britain prevents  a systematic attempt to reconstruct  the railway, although the restoration would be easy. It turns out  that Cheng Yien Huan, whose  death in Kajahgaria was recently  reported, was executed under  an imperial decree at.the same time  with the other pro-foreign ministers  who were executed. Cheng Yien  1-tian was special envoy to England at the time of the diamond  jubilee. He was beheaded by the  empress dowager who exiled him  to Hi in 1899. The Russians, according to the Shang-Hai corres-.  poiideut of the Morning Post, have  virtually abandoned the province  of Shi Li to Germany.  Vienna, September 27.���The admiralty has received a dispatch  from Taku giving the strength of  the forces landed there by the allied  powers, as follows: Austrian, 495 ;  German, 8178 ; British 8353; American, 5608; French, 0575; Italian,  2541; Russiau, 20,934;' Japanese,  15,570. ...  : Shano-Hai, September 27.���Vice--  roy Lui Kim Yi has telegraphed the.  consuls to the effect that he is communicating court regarding the appointment of a new tao tai here.  The consuls believe this will delay  the installation of the objectionable  appointment for several months.  The foreign consuls recently protested against the removal of the  tao tai of Shang-Hai, and the appointment as his successor in the  person of the notorious boxer Kang  Yi. The viceroy of Nankin, Liu  Kuu Yi, replied that at least a  mouth would elapse before the  arrival of the official documents iu  the case, which would enable him to  give the matter consideration, aud  that if it was proved that-the pro-  prosed successor of the tao tai of  Shang-Hai had been a Boxer, he  would protest to the throne against  his appointment.  London, September 27. ��� Dispatches from the far east present  an-astouishing���medley-of���contra--  dictory reports. The empress and  prince Tuan are reported to be in  full flight aud also to be raising  armies and preparing to recapture  Pekin. Li Hung Chang is providing  a peace offering to the powers by  hunting down Boxers and cutting  off heads of the leaders. Additions  are daily made to the lists of massacred missionaries and fresh news  of the detailed movements of the  allies are telegraphed. The empress  is alternately coaxing and intimidating the allies by displaying zeal  in punishing the Boxers with death  penalty at an hour's notice and  displacing officials distrusted by  the consuls and are preparing to  resume military operations against  the invaders while the powers are  conducting negotiations over moves  for position. Russia has been  adopting a system of stern reprisal  in occupying Manchuria, burning  villages, destroying temples and  slaughtering the Manchus along  the banks of the Amoor river  There have been no  of the reports of  massacres by which  of a large province  been secured.  Washington, September 27.���It  is stated in diplomatic quarters  that definite and official information has been received that prince  Tuan has been appointed president  of the privy council of Cliina, instead of grand secretary, as at first  reported, and a number of prominent officials, conspicuous in the recent uprising, have been similarly  honored. The Chinese minister has  uot been advised of prince Tuan's  appointment, but he expressed  the  belief, after calling at the 3tate,de-  partment today, that th^ report-  probably wa.s true. The position  of president of the privy eouucil  is said to be one' of the -foremost in  importance, similar to that of secretary of state or premier.  LORD LANSDOWNE MUST GO  .

London, September 28.���The  Unionists are still confident of victory at,the forthcoming parliamentary general election, bnt there is  an undercurrent of apprehension  that the party will b'e> returned to  power with a smaller majority thanc  has been expected.

London, September, 28.���George  Wyndham, under-secretary of-state  for war, who went,,last evening to  speak in favor of the unionist cand--  'idate in Battersea/"London, had_a  very hostile reception at" the hands  of the Radicals. He -was shouted  down by a' howling,mob, and compelled to abandon his' attempt to  speak, but he pluckily' fought his  way through the hostile crowd, and  in admission of his courage the  crowd finally cheered him heartily.

Baltimore, September 27.���Cardinal Gibbon has been asked to  act as arbitrator between the striking miners and the operators of the  anthracite coal regions of Pennsylvania. While admitting that he  has been approached on the subject, his eminence said tonight he  had only heard from one side, and  _must_de_liue_to_discuss_the^ques--  tion  of arbitration   until   all  had  been heard from. '"Will you consent?" the cardinal was asked.  "In that case 1.sliall take the matter under very serious considera.  tion," he added, as if -to emphasize  the remark. Continuing, he declared that he would'be glad to do  anything in his power to help  solve the problem which seriously  affects so many souls. Tt is held on  good authority that the cardinal  has practically agreed- to arbitrate  the differences, and it is thought  the various interests concerned  will decide to leave the settlement  of the differences to the head of  the Catholic church in the United  States. Cardinal Gibbons will probably go to Philadelphia tomorrow  or Saturday, and it is believed that  this trip will decide the question of  the strike situation.  Transvaal Officers Sail.  Lorenzo    Marquez,   September  27.���The German steamer Herzog,.  which sailed for Europe today, had;,  as passengers the, Transvaal attorney-general, Van  Alpen, assistant:  secretary  of   state   Grobler, state  treasurer Malherbe.. and  carried a  large quantity of bar gold.   The  railroad from Delagoa bay to Pretoria is expected to open foi' traffic  tomorrow.   To Succeed Hugh John.  Winnipeg, September 27.���R. P.  Rinlen, member for Woodlands, has  been decided upon by a caucus of  the Conservatives to succeed Hugh  Johu MacDonald as premier of Manitoba. Rinlen will have to go to  the country for re.election.  BOER DEFEAT IS COMPLETE  All Their Stores Destroyed.  New York, September 27.���A  dispatch to the Herald from Lorenzo Marquez, says: The Boer defeat is complete. By dint of the  hard riding from Barberton your  correspondent overtook first general  Hamilton's division, then that of  geueral Carew and finally entered  Koomatipobrt. Not a shot was  fired nor was a Boer seen during  march. Evidences or the enemy's  destructiveness was everywhere to  be seen. The bridges had beeu  dynamited, the stores, buildings  and homesteads looted and- burued,  as had also the railway property,  all the chief stations being smoking j  ruins, among them being Kaap  Muiden, Hectorspruit, and Kooma-  tipoort. At the last place there is  an enormous area over which the  Boers have wrought destruction.  The -devastation includes hundreds of. wagons, trucks and carriages "which have been burned,together with all- kinds of stores of  clothing, ammunition, forage and  provisions, such as sugar, coffee,  rice and flour. Thousands of tons  are still burning. , .       ,  General Pole-Carew has secured  hundreds of locomotives. The whole,  of the Selati railway line is simply  blocked witji rolling stock.  On my way to Barberton I saw  at Hectorspruit the burst Boer guns  and the destroyed stores.  In the Crocodile river there were  visible literally, acres of damaged  gun ammunition, wagous, dynamite  detonators and war stoies of every  sort.  At'Koomati poort there were besides the burning stores hundred?  of tons'of ammunition. The enemy  had left standing many tents. ""  The great waste in.the effects of  the Boers was evident. Furniture,  trunks, provisions, clothing and  other articles'were lying about in  every direction.  in the rock bed of the river were  eiiormous quantities, of stores, ammunition,' rifles, cannon and-food'  stuffs. Any good police force���slay,  one of 20,000���can -do the rest of  the pacification work for security.  If general Buller and others move-  on to seize the passes, neither Vil-  joeu, with Steyn and Schalkburger,  nor Koetse, with the rest of the  derelicts from Koomatipoort, can  escape through the mountains toward Lydenburg and Pietersburg,  while to remain in the low veldt at  this season of the year, spells death  for men and cattle. The Portuguese have disarmed all. the Boer  refugees taken.  Fifty truck loads, with nearly  500 tons, have been dumped down  on the island of Sheffeen, off Lorenzo Marquez.  The Irish-American mercenaries  are clamoring for pay and threatening the Boer officials.  The final collapse of the Boer  army may be summarized as follows:���When-the-Boers7iHimbering"  2000, evacuated Koomatipoort,  they took up positions between the  Lombombo range and the river.  They had good positions and could  have made a capital stand,  but owing to the disorganization  and lack of discipline that  were prevalent they were only halfhearted. Wishing to avoid a conflict and unnecessary bloodshed,  the British consul-general consulted  the Portuguese governor-general,  senor Machado, as to the best  course to be pursued to attain this  end. He asked that emissaries  should be sent np with an address  to the Boers, pointing out the use-  lessness of continuing their resistance and the absolute Heedlessness  of going on further.  Besides, if they continued to  fight there was a fear of the natives  rising. Owing to the fact 'that the  Portuguese had been most kind to  the Boers, and as they had guaranteed their maintenance and repatriation and promised to send them  back to their country freo of  ���charge, the scheme succeeded  beyond the wildest hopes of its originator.  Instead  of. dozens  coming down  to Lorenzo  Marquez,  2500  arrived  in this wise.    Diplomacy, therefore,'  triumphed by bringing the war to  a speedy and bloodless close.  To Federate With New Zealand.  Melbourne, Victoria, September  27.���The Fiji islands are taking  steps to federate with New Zealand.  Injunction Served on Coughlan.  Rochester, New York, September   27.���United   States    marshall  Burns succeeded after the play here  this evening of Becky Sharp or  Vanity Fair, iu serving an injunction on Miss Gertrude Coughlan, restraining that actress from presenting Becky Sharp until October  5th, when she must appear at  Syracuse and show cause why a  permanent injunction shall not  enter.  TAKES THE REJECTION HARD  Germany Cannot Credit It.  Berlin, September 27.���The German press and foreigu office continues to deny that Great Britain  has .rejected Germany's proposal.  They also continue to blame the  United States for the recently revived Chinese obduracy,and the"renewed evidences that the Chinese  intend to resume hostilities on a  large plan. The Berliner Tageblatt  alone advises Geimany not to expect a favorable answer-to her proposition from Salisbury, as his wish  to carefully nurse relations with  the United States forms the keynote of his policy.  The foreign office told the correspondent of   the   Associated ��� Press  this afternoon that Great Britain's  answer h"r��,d not yet arrived," but  that as soon as it did the- government would be glad to publish it,  uo matter what its character.  Sir Frank Lnscalles, the British  ambassador, who was interviewed  regarding the matter said: . "Great  Britain's delay in answering Germany's proposal is due to tho fact,  as I understand it, that lord Salisbury has asked sir Claude MacDonald-to report upon the feasibility of  the German plan."  Flans for the Big Canal.  Canton, Ohio, September 27.���  Rear admiral Walker, president of  the Nicaragua!- canal commission,  and Theodore S. Search, president  of the _ Manufacturers' League of  Philadelphia, arrived from the east  this ''morning. ! Admiral Walker  carue.*.for, .a...conference on. canal  matters, the nature-of which���was  not made public. He spent nearly  an hour with the president. The  Philadelphia man came to confer on  matters connected with the campaign and had a long talk .with the  president. -    "    ;,.-"*     ' ,    _',_  Tolstoi is Excommunicated.

It declares that Tolstoi is" an avo'wed  enemy of the" church, and therefore  unless he recants the holy synod  will prohibit celebration, of ill divine services and expiatory masses  in the event of his death.

Philadelphia, September 27.���  The towering feature of coal strike  situation today, and one which at- .  tracted the attention of all interests involved, was the widel3r*cirou-  lated report that negotiations are  pending and-rapidly nearing com-"_ -^  pletion, for an amicable^settlement^.;^^  -<_  is  i_~jr  x*VJH  111  7^1  Looking for Brisie's Accomplice.  ���New-York���Septeiubur-aTr^The-  barge office officials, at the request  of the police of Milan, Italy, are  watching every ship that comes iu  for Maurieeico Magi ial,-whose real  name is Luigi Granotti, who is  wanted by the police of Milan for  alleged participation in king Humbert's murder.

New York, September 27.���The'  threatened shut down of the East  New York district's water main  was fulfilled this afternoon, by order of the department of water  supply. About 100,000 people are  affected by tho shut down, but  most of them will be able to get  water from street plugs, more or  less remove from their houses.  No Ultimatum Coming.  London, September 27.���Tlio  British authorities discredit the report that Germany will present an  ultimatum to China, and intimate  it was probably concocted at  Shang-Hai with the object of causing friction between Germany and  Great Britain, and thus delaying  united action. The officials of the  German embassey declare the "ultimatum" story to be absolutely  groundless.  Irish-Americans Leaving.  Lorenzo Marquez, September  27.���The ' Iri9h-Americans lately  serving with the Boers have been  removed from their barracks to the  Portuguese transport India, to prevent disturbance in the town.  '"v#l  ,v>_>_.|  -~tl  of the strike.' While the identity  of the person or persons who ard ,\f_j  said to be at work endeavoring to  bring about au immediate and '*[_[  peaceful adjustment of thedisaffec- -'-K*  tion between the employees and i *-"y  employers has uot, been disclosed, ,'<���;��-:  it was openly admitted in authoritative circles that such endeavor  was in progress. ' President Trues-  dale, of Lackowana, issued as such  an admission, but in what manner  or by whom they were being con- ---i;  ducted he declined to state. ~ President Mitchell, head of the Striking  miners' organization, expressed the  belief the operators had decided to  offer the miners an- increase of 10  per cent, but he too declined to admit whether _ he possessed, any  further information on the subject.  From Cranton tonight comes tho  statement that at a conference of the  mine operators of that section4 thn  opinion was prevalent that the influences at,work were of a strong  political nature, and that the operators would be obliged to offer tho  men at least the concession of an  increase'in wages. The-information upou which they based their  conclusion that tho -working influences were political, could not b"e-  learncd tonight." Coupled* 'with r^.j  nearly all reports of a probable  early settlement of the" trouble,  came the announcement that the  men would be* offered a*u increase of  pay,���but "that,, the,,mine-owners 7-^fSj  "would" positively" decliiTe'Vo' arbi--/"'r^  trate the differences through president Mitchell, or in any manner to  give recognition, to the united mine _.  workers' organization. This refusal   . of    recognition,    however,   "  '"���would not prove a difficult obstacle, "  president Mitchell, in his open letter A_  to the public having" expressed * his'  willingness to accept a settlement"^  through - separate conferences oif L .  committees of the'employees aud  tlieir direct employers.  If the railroad men and other,  who controlled the mines would  accept this proposition he said he  would waive all claim of recogni- .  tion of the union. One condition  he exacted however, and that was  that these ?- various conferences  .should be held the same day and in  the same city. Matters were quiet  iu   these   regions   today,  and   the  strikers'   force   was   increased   by  The closing of~aTfew mines.  Knocks Out Voting Machines.  New-York, September 27.���Attorney-general Davies has rendered  an opinion which it is said may involve the voting; machines for use  in - the; presidential, election now  pending. The vote for president is  not cast direct, as in the case of  other election oflicers, but for presidential electors, of which the proportion 'of New York is .'{fi. The  voting machine provides a lever  Avith the name of each candidate to  be elected, but no provision is made  for 30 electors. The attoi ney-geu-  eral in substance holds that the  electors cannot be bunched. The  decision is regarded as very important, and especially to tho cities  of Buffalo, Rochester, Uticn,'and  several other large municipalities  which have expended thousands of  dollars for tho machines. The attorney-general was called herefrom  Albany tonight, and there is. to be  a conference witli the voting machine  people tomorrow, to see if there is  any .possibility to devise the machine so that it will meet the require men ts of the opinion.

The New York Journal asserts that the national  committee has not spent all told in this campaign'  9100,000, and that chairman Jones went from   New-York to Chicago "broker" =   The above is from  the Spokane1  Review, and it goes to show that  the people of the United States are  determined that elections for president shall not be mere contests for  the collection and  disbursement of  money by pojitical managers.   .The  election of McKiniey cost millions  of dollars, the bulk  of which was  contributed by corporations, whose  managers   were   mode   believe   if  Bryan was elected that the properties they managed would depreciate  an value through the withdrawal of  foreign    investments.   The    same  methods cannot be used  this year,  aud   the    political   managers   are  afraid  that  the   country   will  be  ruined because of the apathy of the  voters.   The same state of affairs  exists in Canada, and more especially in this constituency.   In 189G,  one of the candidates in Yale-Cariboo had money to burn, and his political managers saved the country.  This    year    there   is   no  money,  and   the   politicians   that   saved  the       country      in :���   1890; ���  are  afraid  the people will   allow the  country to go to smash.    The man  whose vote must be bought is unworthy of the franchise, and the candidate who is unable to poll his  party's strength by appealing to  the intelligence   of the electorate  should not become* candidate.  The Liberals here are as much at  sea as are the Conservatives regarding the date of the elections. The  only men who seem to know anything are those who aie making  wagers on the general result.  The Labor Union men in Nelson  who will talk declare they are opposed to the Rossland scheme of  bringing out a labor- candidate.  Most of them are opposed to introducing party politics into their  unions, and ali are opposed to riming a candidate when there is no  show for success.  The Miner has not had �� word to  say in favor of candidate MacKejll  since that gentleman left' Nelson.  Has it lost interest in the candidate  because there is no subsidy in sight?  The Conservatives have two seats  won in this province already. Victoria will 'return "Torn" Earle and  "colonel" Prior, not because of anything they have done during ft.' the  long years they have sat in parliament, but because the Liberals could  not get two strong men to run  against them.  TP Ralph Smith consents to make  the race in Nanaimo as ap Independent Labor man, he will undoubtedly be elected. Pie has more inherent ability than auy politician  on the Island, and he can always be  depended on to vote according to  his convictions.  The Rossland Record is bewailing  because the government has not  commenced the expenditure of the  money appropriated for public  works in Rossland district. If the  money was expended this fall, the  Record would bewail because there  was no money to spend next spring.  A tow�� that cannot get along without government pap is likely to be  afflicted with, just such wesvspapers  as the Record.  The chances' of the two candidates now in the field are summed  as follows by a politician : East  Kootenay is Libera.?. Yale is Conservative, as is Lillooet &n4 Cariboo. The Liberal majority iu Kast  Kootenay will be offset by the Conservative majorities in Yale-Lil-  looet-Cariboo. The battle ground  is West Kootenay.' Bossjand riding is Liberal by a small  majority.

If the labor party  decides to wait until its time comes,  the race between Galliher and MacNeill will be a close one, with the  olds in favor of the men that can  cover the most ground and make  the best impression ou the platform.  The Conservatives of Vancouver  will hold a convention this evening  for the purpose of nominating a  candidate to contest Burrard with  Rev. G. R. Maxwell, the sitting Liberal member. It is not unlikely  that the honor will fall to F. Carter-  Cotton. .  The Rossland papers are urging  the people of that town to get up  excursions to attend the Spokane  exhibition. The Spokane papers  wore never known to urge the  people.of Spokane to go off on excursions to Rossland. Thej' urge  them, instead to stay at home and  save tlieir money.  City Engineer's Costly Blunder,  Greenwood Times.  After a strong legal fight the  city cquncjl have decided to settle  the case of J"fe))de)| & Co. vs. City  by aooepting the plaintiff's' offer of  $5000. The suit has been before  the court for nearly a year, Jt  arose in connection wifch the grading of Copper and Gieenwood  streets last year. When Rehdell  & Co. were about to build their  handsome three-story'block on the  corner they secured the street  grftfjes ft'pra the then cifcy. engineer  and erected the Iwjldjpg, .Afterwards the streets were graded and  the building was left about eight--  teen inches above grade. -Unable  to secure any satisfaction or redress from the council, Rendell '&  Co. took the matter to the courts.  The trial took place before Mr. justice tfwtin, a#,d a jury awarded  $fj,"j00 d_._wn.g;es.' _4i't��rvpflf!c}e j}j_p.  justice Martin confirmed the  award. - The city instructed ��� S_. V.

In the meantime negotiations were opened with Ralph  Smailes, manager of Rendell ��fc Co.,  ft/nd he made a definite offer to accept ��>}0f}Q, effch side to pay its  costs.

"P,C*K   BREAKS  JAIL.  Frank Beck, alias William Jones,  escaped, from the   provincial   jail  Byesterday morning.     He was sen-;  ���teuced on Monday, to two years? in,  Jthe penitentiary, and. was awaiting  [removal to. New .Westminster.    AP  Blast reports Becj?-wa,a still at large.  mh\e pyov^ncial police   throughout  lt"he district have been apprised of  ���the facts and are watching for him.  (Ai there are   comparatively   few  points by which .Beckcan get across  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of'Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  the line the authorities are hopeful  of recapturing their man.  An accurate description of the  escaped '.prisoner is as follows:  Height 5 feet 7 or 8 inches, weight  about 17"i pounds, age about 38  years, complexion dark, small black  moustache, wears felt hat sloping  over eyes, slouchy gait, shifty eyes,  dark clothes, tan shoes, light colored shirt. These particulars have,  been wired throughout the district;.  Beck escaped soon after ��� ten  o'clock yesterday morning. He was  allowed in the. corridor on which,  his cell opened for exercise, and it,  was well on to 11:30 o'clock before  his absence was discovered.. It i.s  not known how he managed to escape, but the theory is that he got  into the watch tower overlooking  the jail yard and made his .way to  the 20-foot^ fence at the back, over  which lie chopped to liberty. Deep  footmarks-, such as would be left  Vender these circumstances, were  discovered beneath the fence.  THE  PACIFIC   CABLE.  The PaciQc cable project has advanced another stage.   That is to  say, the tenders for the construction _  of the line have been  opened, and  that of the Telegraph Construction  Company has been found to be the  lowest at ��l,8a��,00C. the work to be  completed in eighteen months!.   No  doubt the.offer with the others re-,  ceiyed will obtain careful consideration at the hands of the advisory  committee appointed in London in  1890 for the purpose..   But in the  meantime it is satisfactory to the.  colonies concerned to know that the.  ^subject ia not being lost sight of. In.  the absence of details there does  not seem much'to object to either  an the price mentioned; in the tender or the time in which the laying  of .the;. cable is expected to take.  Three years ago the committee reported  that   the  Telegraph  Construction .Company.. estimated the  Imperial Bank of Canada  flKAD  OKF1CK.. TORONTO.

An est  tiraate   from    the   Indir   Rubber,  Gutta-percha, and Telegraph Works  -Company-put-the cost at $l,517-,000r  and offered-to do the work and  maintain the line for three years  for that sum.    But the same company explained ,to   the Canadian  government that   a -1."*   word  per  .minute cable would cost $1,672,000,  while one of J 8  words would cost  ��1,880,000. . The Eastern Extension  company   estimated   the   cost   at  rather less, and  the Henley Telegraph   Works -Compauy  tendered  for the line atTfil,492,000.    But of  course these tenders were governed  by the conditions, such as  weight  of   core   or   the   question    as    to  whether a 15 or 18 word cable was  required.     At   any   rate   it   was  stated   in  the committee's  report  that it would  not be prudent to  put the whole capital  required at  less^ than ��1,800,000.    But it will be  noticed that   the present tenders  carry us no further than the stage  indicated: in the committee's report  of three years ago.  The Gasoline Tricycle.  The first "infernal" machine ever  seen in Hamilton made its appearance on Saturday and attracted a  great deal of attention. The  machine is a tricycle, .propelled by  gasoline motor and was manufactured Jn Toronto; by the Canada  Cycle, and Motor Company. It was  in charge of F..W. Doll, an attache  of the company, who made the run  down from Brantford in 57 minutes,  and who expects to cover the 45  miles to Toronto in less than two  hours. A gasoline,tank atthe back.,  of the-saddle has ;a . capacity of a  gallon and a half, sufficien t to run  the machine more .than a hundred  miles, the oil being exploded by an  electric spark. The.mach|,n,e weighs ,  about 175 pounds, is fitted with big  pneumatic tires and "is handsomely  constructed aud appointed.  Millions in the Hen.  Kingston Time_.

The C. P. R. is beginning to experience the annual fall increase of  business and the depot is one of the  liveliest spots . in the city. The  through shipments are commencing to come iu heaAry; local business is well over last years mark;  the smelter.is again handling a considerable amount of ore, and this  with two work trains out, and a  construction gang at work in the  yard keeps the officials hustling.  Seven locomotives are running out  of Nelson, aud the round house  crew has a busy night of it, commencing at 7 o'clock when most of  the engines come in. AVhen the  new round house is completed the  handling of locomotives will be  greatly faciIitated. ���"' ^     : ~���  N. & F. S. officials who have visited the city state that business on  their road is picking up nicely, and  that the prospect for a good winter  is bright. An indication of this is  the fact that the management cut  out the mixed train which was run  all summer, and is now running a  fast freight into Nelson, arriving'  here daily abont*noon. It is expected that the Tamarac, AVilcox  and other Ymir properties, the  Robin Hood and several propositions along the line will be added  to the list of shippers during the  winter. During the summer considerable work was done along the  road iu the Nelson district and the  roadbed is in good order.  Trade in the towing line promises  to improve. The C.P.R.. tugs are busy  handling barges in and out of Nelson, and with the regular fall increase in business they are likely to  be worked to their full capacity.  The Hercules has beeu tied up here  for several days, but leaves  today  for Bonner's Ferry to tow logs into  Nelson. Captain Campbell has instructions to double the supply of  lime rock for the Trail smelter.  The smelter company's quarry at  Lardo has been worked to the extent of 30,000 tons without making  any appreciable inroad on the bluff.  Three carloads of material   for  the new. roundhouse at the C. P. R.  dopot   has  been delivered  oii the  ground and work on  the  buildin  will commence next week.  The repairs to the steamer Nelson are progressing rapidly and the  craft willprobably be re-launched  on Saturday and resume her run to  Kootenay Landing about the first  of the week.      The new Kootenay Railway &  Navigation .Company's steamer  Kaslo is making runs every other  day from the shipyards at AVood-  bnry creek, and her power is working smoothly.
