Array DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  THURSDAY MORNING SBPTKta_tfBR 27 1900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS  NELSON MINES AND MINING  Big Galena Development.  A fine splicimon of silver lead ore  i.s on exhibition at John A. Irvine's  store.   Tho sample is taken from  , the Big Galena Led go group, owned  jointly by A. Lapointe of Nelson,  James Sawyer of   Pilot   Rny und  Herbert Sawyer of Midway.   The  property is  located  on the divide  between  Copper and. AIki  creeks,  about half a   mile   from    the Sfc.  Mary's   river, 'and 'comprises   the  Great Dane; White Star and Fisher  claims.      The   St.   Mary's   wagon  road, now about completed, passes  ���li miles from the property, but the  proposed   C7 P.  Ii.  spur    through  ������'Sawyer's  'pass   will    come  within  half a mile of the group.   About  $2000  has  been  expended  on   the  claims, and   the   results   are very  satisfactory.    The owners have a  deal pendiug for the property, the  result of which may be announced  shortly.    During the past summer  $900 was expended in op^n cuttings  across the claims for the purpose of  prospecting  the ledges.      On    tho  Great Dane  they  have eleven feet  of ledge matter, with   five  feet 'of  solid   galena  carrying  copper,   the  total  values  averaging $70.    This  lead crosses  the White Star'also.  On the Fisher the ore is 2& to 8 feet'  in. width, but the wall is not located  as yefc.   The owners have 200 tons  of shipping ore on the Great Dane  dump which would  be sent to the  smelter  if   facilities   for   shipping  were available.  Development at the Ymir mine  has reached a depth of ~>~>0 feet.  The concentrates from the mill are  being shipped to the Nelson and Trail  smelters. J. Roderick Robertson,  general manager, states that the report circulated recently as to the  number of stamps being doubled  this year was manufactured out of  whole cloth and is without foundation. ' O. H. Banihart, superintendent of the. mine, was in the city  yesterday.         The   Lemon' creek 'wagon road  leading to the Chapleaii< and  Kilo  groups was -practically completed  'yesterday and is pronounced to  be |  ! one of the best roads in the district.  For a large portion of its length the  grade is only four per cent  or less.  [The Canadian  Pacific railway has  [surveyed a spur line four miles  up  [Lemon   creek.   Johu   Cr.   Sullivan,  [district construction engineer, went  lover the proposed route   and ap-  [proved of the survey.   The line can  |be constructed at any time when  [when the mining companies inter-  lested take the initiative.  John F. Holden of Slocan City is  |in the city. He is the representatives of the Seattle capitalists who  [have bonded the Tamarac group on  [Springer creek, and exhibits some  [exceptionally fine specimens of  !galeuaJ'r_oiii_th^proper-ty.=^A-oi,ew-  ���of men is afc work on the Tamarac,  [the majority of them being employed in erecting the necessary  [buildings - to accommodate an in-  Icreased staff. The intention of the  [company is to continue work stead-  lily all winter.  JALF A MILLION DOLLARS  Already Expended.  Paul Johnson, superintendent of  [the Greenwood smelter, says that  (he hopes to have the smelter in op-  [eration by December. The nou-ar-  fiival of machineiy has caused de:  hiys, but most of the plant is now  r>n the ground. Speaking in a general way of the operations of his  jiompauy, he says they have spent  (.lose on to half a million dollars in  Developing mines and erecting a  jimelter, but that there is 700,000  bons'of good ore blocked out in the  jUother Lode mine, alone, to show  I'or part of this expenditure. The  Jiompany has ordered a 45-drill  lionipressor plant, which when installed will give the company 55  Ill-ills. This will insure and output  |_f over 1000 tons a day.  Mr. Johnson has always contended that the bulk of the Bound-  try ores could be smelted without  luxing, and he says that his contention is being proved correct by  the Grand Forks smelter people.  Pheir smelter is now treating 300  tons of ore a day in one furnace  .ithout using a pound of either  iron ore or lime rock as flux. Slag  [is not even used, and only 10 per  cent of cake.    The matte turned  ���cut carries 38 per cent of .copper,  which i.s a good grade, considering  the copper contents' of the ore  smelted. '  Whilst Mr. Johnson was not disposed to state the actual'eost of  smelting Boundary ores of the  class now being treated at the  Grand Forks smelter, he some time  ago said they should be treated at  a cost not to exceed $3 per ton.  Mr. Johnson purchased from W.  F. Teetzel & Co. a complete assaying plant. Nelsou is the one point  in this great mining country at  which everything in the way of  raining and smelting supplies can  be obtained.  MARKLE MINERS AT WORK  Will Arbitrate the Differences.  Ha/elton, Pennsylvania, September 20.���The request made yesterday by .sheriff Harvey, for  troops, although not refused, was  not granted by governor Stone.  The sheriff and state officials at  Harrisburg, however, have an understanding between them, and if  the necessity arises, soldiers will be  thrown iuto this region in short  order. The sheriff today gave out  the following for the information of  the citizens of this region : " The  fact that I have called upon the-  governor for help is true. I have  since been in communication with  him, and also general Corbin, who  assures me that upon the slightest  "overt act, by the unlawful assembling of men, that he will have  troops here within an hour, and  also assures me that they will stay  until all trouble is over."  There, were no disturbances reported in this region today. The  sheriff is kept well informed of  every move of the strikers in the  way of marching, and will try to  be on hand in every instance to see  that life ,and property are ' not.  placed in jeopardy. Three strikers  were arrested by coal and .iron  police today, charged- with unlawful assembly and trespassing, .while  walking along the railroad tracks  on > the Lehigh Valley "Coal Company's property, betweeu this company's No. 1 slope in the eastern  part of the city. They were released after a hearing this afternoon.  Operations at the Markle colleries  were suspended today, so that the  employees could hold meetings to  discuss the firm's answer. The  meeting was held in the forenoon,  and this afternoon the committee,  composed of employees of the several Markle mines, with the exception of Ebervale, which is completely tied up, made known to the  firm the decision of the employees.  They accept the firms proposition  in regard to the hoisting of men  from the slope, aquiesee in the refusal to pay the engineers by the  hour, and want to arbitrate all the  other grievances, excepting those  _relating__to_semi-monthly��� pay-aud  the. location of powder houses,  which have been adjusted by the  answer of Markle & Company.  The men also decided to remain at  work pending the arbitration negotiations, aud agreed to ask the firm  to deduct from the pay of each  family that returns to work their  quota for the payment of the arbitrator selected by the men.  Some Philippine Skirmishes.  Manila, September 26.���On Monday night vigorous insurgent  attacks were made upou the United  States outposts in the districts near  Seapotol bridge, Las Pinas, Paran-  aque, Bacoor and Imus, twelve  miles south of Manila, the scene of  the fighting last October. It is  estimated that the rebels numbered  four hundred, and they were armed  with rifles. The inhabitants took  refuge in the churches. The Americans have since energetically dispersed the enemy, killing: aud  wounding fifty.  It is reported Jthat an American  scouting party discovered a body of  insurgents in the province of Neuva  Ecija. Two skirmishes ensuing in  which twelve of the natives were  killed. Similar brushes have taken  place near Indang and Silang in  Cavite province and near Iba and  Subig, in Zamales province, the  Americans having two killed and  three wounded. Advices from the  island of Leyte say that general  Mojicas bands have been scattered  and demoralized by major Henry  T. Allen of the 43rd Infantry who  has vigorously pursued the insurgents into the mountains capturing  many and taking a quantity of  money, rings, ammunition and  storeB.  THE WAR'S CLOSING SCENES  Peace Proclamation Expected.  Nkw   York,   September  2G.���A  dispatch to the Tribune from London says:   The duke of Devonshire  has replied to the challenge' from  Dalmeny and Messrs. Balfour and  Chamberlain, and the earl of Kimberly, and scores of canvassers have  been   speaking   within   24   hours.  Rut   lord -Rosebery's letters  have  imparted the chief impulse" to the  liberal canvass, while lord Roberts  has done the most effective work  for  the   unionists.   He   has fully  confirmed the earlier reports of the  occupation of Kooinatipoort by the  British army and the appearance of  the   remnants   of   the   Boer commandos   in - Portuguese   territory  after .a   few rifle shots had been  fired.   ThejGuards brigade, which  has held the post of honor throughout the campaign, led the way into  Koomatipoort, the final objective  point of lord Roberts'strategy.  That brigade has marched in the  course of the year from Deaar to  Magersfontein- under; Methiien, and  to Bloemforitein/t3?r_tOrj��- and the  Portuguese frontier wfi4er lord Ro^  erts, and it now stamps* guard over  the back door of tlife neutral base  through wbich.door the Dutch received, their arms.and supplies. The  war hasvended with the destruction  of guns and ammunition on the  edge of the frontier and with the,  disarming of the refugees by the  Portuguese officials. Every mile of  railroad in the two Dutch states is  now under British control, and  every important town is garrisoned.  Lord-Roberts has finished'his work  and can return to England, after  'proclaiming a state of peace, in  which belligerents will be liable to  summary punishment ns outlaws  and murderers.  The Delagoa Bay railroad, which  has played an important part.in  the Boer plan of campaign,., will  now become an instrument of. peace..  It is nominally owned. by a Hoi;  land company, but has^-virtually  been the" propertyjaf^he'Transvaal'  government. The Holland directors,  in order to prevent the confiscation  of this railroad by the British military, will be anxious to clear the  line and put it in working order to  Pretoria for - supplying the army  of occupation and for the resumption of raining operations on the  Rand. The interests of the Portuguese traders are identical with  those of the directors. The neutral  base, without which the Boers  could not have armed themselves  and kept up a year's campaign, is  converted by the completion of  Lord Roberts' campaign into a center of commerce with the victorious army and mining camps which  are behind.  U. S. BECOMES SUSPICIOUS  Of Chinese Sincerity.  Washington, September 20.���  One belated dispatch from general  Chaffee, relative to conditions in  Pekin on the 21st instant, was made  public today. It is apparent' that  the United States government is in  a waiting attitude, after having  made the important move toward  a reduction of the American troops  iu China as announced yesterday.  General Chaffee had not received  the department's instructions when  he sent his message made-public  today, but without doubt now has  it in hand. His offer to escort Li  Hung Chang was iu conformity  .with the expressed purpose of the  state department to facilitate in  every way the journey of the  Chinese viceroy to Pekin. ' Still it  is now regarded as just as well that  tbe offer was declined, and the responsibility of Li's safety left with  the Russians. - 7  The instruction to.',-, minister  Conger, to establish relations with  Li and prince Ching, is stU]l.h��ld up  here. It is beginning .to Appear  that the purpose of the delay is to  ascertain more clearly the plans of  the powers in whose interest, as  well as in behalf of the United  States, Mr. Conger was to endeavor  to bring, about' negotiations for a  settlement. If it shall appear that  there is a disposition on the part of  any considerable portion of them  to reject in advance the well meant  efforts of the United States government to bring about a conference,  and negotiations in which they  could participate on equal terms  with the United States govern ment  with the purpose, of terminating  the Chinese -'difficulties, then  Mr. - Conger's^ instructions may require recasting.,',Tt' .might be  regarded as useless for. him to arrange for a meeting of. tlje powers  with China which the former do not  care to attend, owing to entirely  different purposes from those animating the United Si-ates.and there  probably'is no disposition to subject  the minister to humiliation by a flat  failure which might be anticipated.  St. ia also possible that the news  felittiv.i' to the..advancement of  prince "nan to a position .where he  might influence the ^negotiations, is  regarded as worthy .of attention,  and that the government may delay  proceedings as long as he. stands in  the way. -- ;��- /,.  GERMANY MAY BACK DOWN   ____��-        -".    -  This Is Looked.for Now.  London, Septembei;" 20.���The af-  tempttf the "London Times,  and  European papers, tQ distinguish between the proposals-contained  in  the German note. anU in their en-,  deavor to lay all stress on -the proposals   without   any attention  to  what' Germany-considered a   pre-*  liminary to-^any. -negotiations',  is  pronounced here to be .utterly, at  variance with the construction tliey  put on the notelwhen .it, was first  made public.  ��� Tiie -Thjiies editorially  on September 19th, 'declared   the  German   government, ^recognizes  the-force of the.contention we have  eonsistently laid'-" down,  that the  punishment "of the real authors'of  the attacks on- Europeans _- must be  a condition precedent to diplomatic  dealings of any. kind, with any' of  the representatives of China. > "That  was the theme of the whole editorial.   The proposal, that the ministers at Pekin  be empowered   to  designate      such      real      authors  of      the'   attacks"   .was,     it     is  pointed     out      treated,     merely  incidentally   and " as  a   sequence  to the first part of .the note,^no endeavor   being   made<,to'"' separate  what German y- cdusid >ed' essen tia.1'  from.whafc she ���proposed:   In', fact''  the proposal regarding the designation of the authors of the attacks  was then* thought' by, the   Times  and other papers iu England and  on the continent to be a logical result of the powers agreeing that  their surrender was to be precedent  to the negotiations.  This view was fully shared by  the Berlin correspondent of the  Times, September 19th, in spite of  his chauge of base in today's issue.  Thus, it is claimed, the efforts show  that if America, or even England, misunderstood Germany's  meaning, it can only be the result  of ignorance or an endeavor to enable the German government to re-'  tire from a position fchey Hud untenable."  The St. James Gazette says: "This  discovery of the true inwardness of  the"hote~is~~very convenient. It is  explained in Berlin that the refusal  of America is doubtless owing to  the dullards at Washington having  confused the two parts of Von Buelow's document. It is a pity an  analytical commentary was nofc  forwarded with the text of the  note."  TO TRANSFER IN NOVEMBER  Expenditures on N. & F. S. Branch.  . The first traiu to run through  from Procter to Nelson' came iri  yesterday. The object was to secure several cars of rails and fish  plates, lying here, for use on the  extension. The N. & F. S. road  still controls this section of their  line -between here and- Five-Mile  point, but the understanding is that  the section is to be handed over  completely to the C. P. R. about  November first, the N. & F. S. re-r  tabling running rights into  the city. In the meantime,  the C. P. R. is spending froin  $40,000 to $50,000 iu correcting tK6  alignment and improving the roadbed. The work is being done by J.  W.Stewart and J* V.. Welch, the  latter holding a sub-contract.  About 200 men are employed, and  the number is being increased  daily as men apply for work. It is  believed that the C. P. R. will nofc  utilize the Balfour extension during  the coming winter, and this impression is strengthened by the fact  that no steps are being taken to  lengthen the slip at Proctor, which  is already 100 feet too short to  allow barges to unload.  DEAD   HEATHEN   HONORED  By the Empress Regent.  London,    September     27.��� The  China question is again  the phase  of the discussion of the stability of  the European concert, aud the likelihood of Germany finding it convenient to "modify her aggressive  attitude.   /According to the Yokohama correspondent of the Daily  Mail, Japan assents to Germany's  proposal,   but' at   the   same time  strongly urges that there should be  no prolonged" delay in "the negotiations.   The same authority says  tliafc Japan would decline to follow  Germany in pursuing the imperial  court into the interior of China.        |  v"From China comes the announce  ment that an imperial edict confers  posthumous   honors   on' the anti-  foreign high'comraissioner Li Ping  Heng, who committed puicide after  the evacuation of Tung Chow, and  on   Ting   Li, ' the late    emperor's  father-in-law, who   killed   himself  after the emperor aud empress regent left Pekin.'  - Chinese papers assert that orders  have been issued for the erection of  a new imperial palace at Si Noan  Fu. They also report that Li Hung  Chang has started For Pekiu escorted by Russian aud Japanese  troops, and that Lu Chau Lin has  been appointed viceroy of. Canton.  Shengs Yamen confirms the rumor  that Li Hung Chang has received  secret orders to attempt to recapture Pekin.   -        '  Describing the disorders in the  vicinity of Canton, the Hong Kong  correspondent of the Times,'wiring  yesterday, says: "The American  church, in the suburbs of Canton,  has been destroyed, and the Catholic church at To Kani Hani and the  foreign cemetery there have been  desecrated."-  The Times, dealing editorially  wifch fche attitude of Washington,  says: "This is not circulated to  smooth ��� the path' of the powers.  Mr: Conger's unsolicited offer of  mediation''is a.proceeding very uu-  -usual iu diplomacy. If the United  8fcate9 government withdraws its  troops it will -virtually- leave,  the ��� American" legation under,  the protection- of powers with  whom the United States decline to  co-operate. Americans must be  aware that no legation, with "only a  guard to defend'it, would not long  be safe under a Chinese. government including prince Tuan and  the other Boxer leaders. The editorial goes on to express a reluctance to believe the reports that  Russia will permanently occupy  Manchuria, and to protest against  the Russian massacres at Niu-  Chwang and the rail ways, declaring  that the United States aud other  powers have important interests in  the north, which they will not be  disposed to see needlessly  injured.  POLITICS BECOMING WARM  Chamberlain Scored by Asquith.  London. Septembei- 27.���The oratory of the parliamentary general  election "campaign on botli sides  continues with unabated energy.  Owing, however, Lo the fact that  the government leaders havo decided to fight the election solely to  the khaki issue; the speeches have  degenerated into wearisome repifci-  tions.- Canvassers, both Conserva-.  tive and Liberal, report'that it is  impossible to arouse- the voters to  any enthusiasm. Indeed, the display of apathy is so marked as to  show that lord Salisbury rightly  gauged the mood of the conn try when  he devoted the greater part of his  own manifesto to an effort.to convince the electors of the danger of  keeping away from the polls.  Liberal candidates throughout the  .countrjf have seized upon 7 Mr.  Chamberlain's utterances for criticism. Speaking last evening at  Frouchie, Herbert,Asquith, member for East Fife, and former secretary of state foi' the home department, said that the colonial secretary's attempt to iudict the whole  of a great political party as traitors  was a piece of rhetorical insolence.  Other speakers comment upon Mr.  Chamberlain's attempt to divide  the country between Chamberlaiu-  ites and traitors.  Arthur J. Balfour, first lord of  the treasury, speaking last evening  in Manchester, devoted himself to a  review of the government's successful domestic legislation.  This morning, the Morning Mail  admits that the little Englanders  are getting a better reception than  was anticipated,aud the imperialists  are greeted 'with less enthusiasm  than would have been the case three  months ago.  Considerable interest centers in  the result at Durham. Captain  Lambton, of the cruiser Powerful,  one of the brothers of the earl of  Durham, is standing in the Liberal  interest at Newcastle, while another  brother, Hon. F. W. Lambton, is the  Unionist candidate at Durham.  Lord Rosebery's manifesto was a  letter addressed to captain Lamb*  ton, who, in the course of a speech  last evening, humorously claimed  credit for enticing Achilles, meaning lord Rosebery, out of his  tent.  TEXT OF SALISBURY'S REPLY  To the German Note.  London, September' 20.���The  British premier's decision to refuse  to agree to the terms of the German note was communicated verbally to the German ambassador  here. Count von Hatzfeldt-Wilden-  berg, during the" course of a long  interview this afternoon. His lordship's decision is not known here  and the exclusive information of  the Associated Press probably will  -not be officialy given out in England until the reply is put on paper  aud transmitted to Berlin, which  may be tomorrow or later. Only a  few officials are cognizant of what  lord Salisbury said to count von  Hatzfeldt-Wildenberg in regard to  the latest developments in the  Chinese question'.    ���    -   -  Official circles here were inclined  to believe that his lordship would  agree with .Germany. But, instead  of doing so, he used almost exactly  the terms in which the Washington  refusal'was couched, and this, said  a high official to a representative of  the Associated Press, "is all the  more surprising considering fche  Washington officials had not the  slightest inkling of what England's  attiti.de..wQuld be."-, What'^will-be  the'resulfc'oj/this difference of view  between' ilie .United'. States- and  Great Britaiu 911 the one hand aud  Germany,. -Austria, - Franco and  Italy on the other no official was  found by the representative'of the  Associated Press who wa.s willing  to risk an opinion, but" all agreed  in believing that it.did'not entail a  breaking of the negotiations.  The representative of the Associated Press has ascertained that  lord Salisbury this afternoon refused to pass on prince Ching's -request for credentials as plenipotentiary, referring the .whole matter  to the British minister at Pekiu, sir  Claude MacDonald. The decision  has been communicated to the  Chinese minister here, who will  cable ib'to China. The minister  spent a lonp; time afc the foreign  office this afternoon, bufc he did not  see lord Salisbury, nor did he learn  the-nature of-Great���Britain's-reply-  to Germany. The minister said fco  a representative of the Associated  Press that ho could scarcely believe  that lord Salisbury's views differed  much from those of the United  States, "for," fche .Chinese minister  added, "lord Salisbury made this  promise to me recently: 'I don't  want to make any change iu the  constitution of China."  Are on Better Terms.  Nkw York, September 20.-���A'  dispatch to the Herald from Berlin  says: Ifc is learned that negotiations  are proceeding between France and  Germany regarding the question of  reappointment of military attaches.  The negotiations are not yet coiir  eluded, it was on December 13,  181)9, that emperor. William withdrew major baron von Suskiud,  the German military attache at  Paris, on account of attacks that  had been made on the baron. It  was'denied that the Dreyfus affair  was the immediate cause of the  withdrawal. The emperor, considered that German attaches,, should  not be expected to furnish information to tiie government not consistent with a nieo sense of honor.  The duties of military attache have  since been modified to meet the emperor's view. France recalled lieutenant comte de Falcade, military  attache in Berlin, on December 21st,  ljmKr:;' .  Railway Smash in Texas.  Fort: Worth, Texas, September  20.���A passenger train on the Fort  Worth & Rio Grand railroad ran  into a washout near Rock Creek today. One person was killed and  six or eight badly injured. Their  iiamas have not yet been learned.  ROOSEVELT  WAS MOBBED  By Toughs of. Victor.  Cripple Ckeek,  Colorado, -S-p-'  tember    20.���Governor    Roosevelt  had   a   most   exciting   experience  today at Victor, a few miles from  here, among 1" e mines, where a demonstrative crowd had 'assembled.  The governor b*d a narrow escape  from    serious    personal    violence.  The incident was the only one of  the kind that has occurred during -  the progress of the trip, and it^is'-  said   that  the trouble"was-occa-;  sioned by a small body.'of .roughs',  who had been organized and paid  for the purpose of breaking up the  meeting.    The men engaged were  few in number, but very violent in  their attack.  Governor Roosevelt spoke at the  armory hall, which was** filled.    He^  hardly began speaking when he was '  interrupted  by   noisy demonstrations.. He said:    "In ray state, the '  men who were-puton the committee   on  the platform;to draw au  anti-trust platform at the Kansas  City convention, had at that time"  their pockets stuffed with ice trust"  stock.   The dealer, in  New York".-  Richard Croker, upon whom 3'ou.  base   your only hope, and it is,a  mighty slim hope too, was another'  great stockholder,'and,  in  fact,  if  you were to read through the list'  of   stockholders in   that trust, it'  would sound like reading the'roll of.  the members of Tammy hall."      * ;  Voice : "What about the rotten'-  beef?"  The governor replied: "I ate.,  it, but you will never get near'  enough to be hit with a bullet," ;or_-  within five miles of it."  Governor Roosevelt  succeeded in   "  finishing his remarks, though there".'  was an evident intention   among'  those present thathe should not do.,  so.    When' the governor left  the  hall with his  party  to  go  toward*. -  the train, he was surrounded by a"- ���  political company in--.rough .riders,**  uniforms, commanded'by :Shermar_';..  Bell,   one of   his->soldiers   in   the"  :Spanish war.  Governor Boosevelt, and his-'  party were on foot. A -crowd of  boys and men began throwing  stones and shoufcing for Bryan..  The ronglTriders, mounted and un- .  mounted, closed in aiound the  governor. One man made a per- "  sonal attack upon governor Roosevelt; and succeeded in striking him  with a stick in the breast. The  assailant was immediately knocked  down by Daniel Sullivan, post,  master afc Cripple Creek. A rush  was then made by the mob to drag  the mounted men in the khaki uniforms from their horses'. The men  on foot, also in khaki, closed in  around the governor, making a  wedge, which pushed through the  crowd, and they finally succeeded  in gaining the train which was  surrounded by.a_mob.  -���'..^j_i  .,*-/*,;S&-|  ..-1 r  i- -r*-|  By this time there were probably  1000 or 1500 excited people in the  vicinity, and fights were on all  sides. Many of the mob were  armed with sticks and clubs, some  with rotten eggs, potatoes and  lemons. Tho party regained the  train however Avithout serious injury, and it pulled out of the place  with the rough riders on the rear  platform.  Governor Hoosovelt, while regretting the occurrence, was not  disturbed by the incidents, and was  ready to proceed with his speech iu  Cripple creek.  ' High Water in Texas.  Dallas, Texas, September 20.���  All reports today indicate that the  lower Brazo and Colorado rivers  are falling slowly, except at Lagrange, where the water is reported  to have risen 2-i feefc since yesterday, and still rising slowly. There  is no confirmation of the report  thafc Menardville, on the upper San-  basa, was flooded. Menardville has  no rail or. wire communication. At  Dallas the river has fallen one foot  in the 24 hours, but is still dangerously high, and the indications are  for more rain.  Prince Henry in Command.

The men responsible i'or the
candidacy of Mr. MacNeill and Mr.
Galliher   are determined  that the
campaign should be conducted
without the expenditure of money,
except the amounts actually required for the incidental expenses
of a campaign. This is a wise determination. Why should a candidate be 'required to expend large
snms.of money to secure an office
that is, at- best, one of honor and
not one of profit? No honest man,
who is without independent fortune,
can hold office-for any length of
time without making sacrifice-. If
a business man, he,loses largely
through being unable to give his
affairs personal attention while attending to his public duties. If a
professional man the loss is equally
great for the same reason.
It is   safe to   say  that $20,000
have been spent in Nelson riding in
the last three years, in the several
elections that have taken place dur-.
ing   that time,   yet  $3000 would
cover the j>ersonal expenses.of the
several candidates and pay all the
legitimate expenses of thecontests.
Wliat, then, became of the $17,000?
The bulk of it was handed over to
meu who claimed  they had  influence with their fellow-men,.and the
remainder was used in  hiring men
to perform a   duty that were an
attempt   made    to   prevent them
from   performing would probably
result   in   civil  war.     These  two
classes should be lef t severely alone.
The one is wholly without influence.

Nrt,sox merchants and manufacturers intend to strictly enforce
all laws against transient traders
and those who take orders to be
filled at other cities. Drummers
for outside cigar houses will be
compelled to sell to wholesale dealers, just as drummers for wholesale liquor houses are compelled to
do. ' No drummer for a wholesale
liquor outside this province can
sell liquor to retail' dealers without
first taking out a wholesale house
dealer's license. This is as it should
be. The first duty of the people of
a city in this province is to guard
the interests of the cifcy in which
they live.
TiiRRR is no misunderstanding
the position of premier Laurier this
year upon the tariff question. Five
years ago he' said free trade was
the goal of the Liberal party. He
does uot recant, but in Montreal
last week he amplified, his former
statement by saying that it will
take the Liberal party fifty years
to reach it. Free trade is a blessing reserved foi our children's
Notwithstanding the vagaries
of the McLagan, the World of Vancouver i.s the best newspaper in
that - pretentious and bumptious
city.  ■
The Tupper Conservative push in
the East are opposing editor Oliver
in Alberta and supporting editor
Richardson in Lisgar, both of whom
are Liberals and members of the
house of commons. Both are men
of strong convictions, and are as
independent as politicians can be
and be party meu.
William Sloan, who ha,s been
nominated by the Liberals of Vancouver (Island) constituency, will
make the race as an independent
Liberal. He was nominated by .T.
F. Bledsoe, formerly of this city,
who said that the candidate should
run as an independent, because a
straight supporter of the government could not be elected,- as there
were some things, upon which
the people did not. agree
with the government, especially   with   respect   to Asiatic
labor. Several of the delegates refused to make Sloan's nomination
unanimous on the ground that he
was not a straight Liberal. It is
generally understood that Ralph
Smith will run as a labor candidate,
iu which case ifc will not matter
very much what candidate Sloan's
views or sympathies are.

A party's recommendation to the
people   should   be   the    principles
wliich it maintains, and the public
service   it   has   performed.    What
earthly relation does the bust of sir
Johu   A.   Macdonald   bear  to   the
merits of the .Conservative  party's
appeal to the country 'today?   Sir
.lohn A; Macdonald's achievements
stand to the credit of the party; his
name will ever adorn   the political
history   of    the    dominion.      The
benefits  which  sir John   A.   Macdonald conferred upon the country
can he emphasized  and  his  great
ability ean receive recognition without resorting to  the methods employed, at  the  meeting in  Massejr
hall.    There is no good reason why.
the enthusiasm inspired by the uu:
veiling   of   a bust of sir John A.
'Macdonald should be exploited for
the advantage of the party which
is appealing to Canada under the
auspices of sir Charles Tupper. The
exhibition of the bust was, under
the circumstances, more  ridiculous
than sublime.   There is a.'time for
a parfcy to honor a worthy name,
and there is a time when  it should
present ils credentials to the people
whose   confidence    ifc   asks.      The
cause of  the Conservative  party is
not so  weak  that it must seek to
profit from such enthusiasm as the
unveiling oif a bust of sir Johu A.
Macdonald    promotes.      There   is
something cheap in the spectacular
plaster   displays   on   Conservative
platforms.    They are unworthy a
great parfcy and an indignity to a
great name.

Macdonald & Company, wholesale grocers, returned, yesterday from a  successful business trip to the Lardeau district. He states that the  business men of Lardeau and Ferguson are eagerly.asking if Nelson  can and .will: .'do anythingr.towardi  furthering, their campaign' for rail-;  road facilities.- It is generally  realized that the CV'.P. R. >will do,  nothing this year.toward completing their line throughathe district,  but the business nigri' am determined to put up a 9trev0^--flght this  winter with a view to. having the  road built in the spring. In thi.:  they ? believe NelBon can help; then);:  and are: more-than anxious that tho  board of trade and wholesalers' association should help their cause  along.  The condition of affairs in the  Lardeau is well known. The C.P.R.  graded li. miles: of road, in 1889,.  and when; ; operations: t: were: suspended for the winter an assurance  was given that the work ��� would- be  continued last spring.  This  assurance������- was   reiterated:  more than once, it is said, by president Shaughnessy, but the Lardo  people have yet to see a tie laid on  their long stretch of grade. -  lt is felt that the future prosperity of the district depends to a  large extent on the . completion of  the railroad. The country has  many promising mineral claims,  several of which will be worked extensively wheu transportation  facilities.are available. Among the  mining properties now attracting  general attention is the Triune  group. .The Triune is -being operated by Ferguson brothers, and a  recent shipment realized $300 per  ton gross, the net returns being  $268;���It_-i3-stated-that^the-Fer^  gusons have had a ^.cash offer; of  $.100,000 for their property, aud a  proposition from Rossland parties  to bond at $500,000, with a cash  payment of 10 per cent.

A syndicate is being formed to  incorporate a company with the  object of purchasing and improving  real estate in Nelson. The syndicate has already an option on one  of the best paying blocks on Baker  street. The syndicate's announcement will probably be made on  Monday.  Pat. Daly, one of the best known  of Ymir's miners and prospectors,  is in Nelson', lie says no section of  Kootenay has better showings than  the Vmir camp, and that iu time  the output of the mines will be  second to few camps in the province.

The Kootenay Lake Telephone  company is considering the construction of a line from Cascade to  Rossland along the Dewdney trail.  H. AV. Kent, general manager, is in  the city and leaves tomorrow to  ride  over  the  trail with a view of  IMPROVEMENT UNDER WAY  In Local Telephone Service.  The telephone construction gang  under the direction of G. E. McCartney,   the company's foreman,  has the changes in the local system  well under way.    They will be here  for a month longer at least, the appropriation for  the  improvements  here" being over $5000.   The gang  is  now stringing cables   from  the  central oflice to various distributing  points.    For this work 1000  feet of  ariel  paper  cable will be used, the  cable containing 52 wires.    The use  of paper, as an insulator in cables is  new to this district, cotton   having  been utilized in cables strung heretofore.     The   lines   on   Josephine  street, the residential districts  aiul  Fairview are to be  gone  over  and  put   in   Iirst   class   shape.       This  means rebuilding the entire system  with the exception of Baker street  which was rebuilt last winter.  The internal arrangements at the  e  being altered.    The  switchboard      expert,  Charles  Pattison  of  Vancouver, is  here installing  tho new cross-connecting rack  and   metallic switchboard.    In doing  this  work 25,000  connections aie made, over 5000 of  which are soldered.. The cross-connecting rack is placed in the second  story of the exchange and  is  used  to distribute  the  wires, coming in  from  the  outside, to  their  proper  places  on   the   switchboard.    Two  arresters are provided for the purpose of excluding electrical currents  from the switchboard',  where great  damage  might  be done.   The system will be transferred to  the new  switchboard   within   a   couple   of  weeks,   but   the  change   is  to'.- be  made without interfering with the  service.  ESTABLISHED 1892  H.
