They  'came from all sections of southern  Kootenay and Vale, and were as  .fairly representative of the men  who labor for day's wage as were  those who attended the .Revelstoke  convention of the men who look  after the business and political interests of the Liberal and'the Con-  ' servative parties.  The convention was held in Fraternity hall, and called to order by  James Wilks of Nelson, who is president of the district association of  the AVestern Federation of Miners,  aud A. C. Thompson of the Industrial World of Rossland, was chosen  secietary pro tern. A committee on  credentials was appointed, namely:  A. C. Thompson of Rossland, Charles  Wilsou of Greenwood, Charles McKay" of Nelson, II. H.' Dimock of  Moyie, Percy Johnson of Sandon,  AV. J. Hughes of''Ymir, and Joseph  Brandon of Silverton, and an adjournment was taken until 1 o'clock  to allow the committee time to report. AVhen the convention reassembled the' committee reported 43  properly accredited delegates in attendance and a number of proxies.  The delegates present are:  Rossland���A. C. Thompson, J. J.

Anderson, AValter Kay.  The temporary officers were made  permanent. The question as to  whether a candidate should be.uom-  inated was declared open for discussion. It is^ imdersjoodJ^atJjijL  delegates from- Kossland strongly  favored making a nomination and  the Nelson delegates equally as  strongly opposed any such action.  James AVilks made a speech in opposition that is reported, as an able  one. The question, however, was  undecided when a motion to adjourn until 8 o'clock was carried.  The convention resumed at S  o'clock and sat through till 12:45  without---reaching the nominating  stage. /Earlier in the day it was resolved by resolution to forma third-  party to contest the forthcoming  election, and that the now division  should be styled the Independent  party. .On the vote a portion of  the Nelson delegation opposed the  passage of the resolution strongly.  The opposition was headed by  James Wilks, secretary of the  Miners' union, who made the speech  of the convention in support of his  position. He was backed up by the  delegates of the Bricklayers' and  Barbers' unions and by Walter  Hughes of Ymir. Despite .their  efforts the resolution carried by  a large ' majority, most of  the delegates, voting according  to their instructions from the  organizations vouching for them.  After the division/the resolution to  form a party was made unanimous.  About 0:30 a resolution was introduced to the effect that a candidate should be placed in the field.  This evoked another earnest discussion. A stout opposition was offered by the section which fought the  previous resolution but without avail  for the motion went through with  practically the same vote.. Under  this head the question of finances  rame up and the Rossland delegation  was strenuous in support of the  contention that a fund ample to  meet all legitimate expenses of the  campaign could be raised without  difliculty. They pledged the Rossland labor unions to give a day's  pay per man toward the campaign  fund and suggested the adoption of  a similar scheme by unions throughout the riding.  The active supporters of the candidate resolution submitted figures  showing the strength of organized  labor in the riding, and confidence  was expressed that the rank and  file of labor organizations could be  swung into line. This feature was  discussed at considerable length.  '  The balance of the session was  spent iu drafting a platform, and  the delegates . put three solid  hours on the task.  The platform was finally adopted  in the following shape:  '. No.  1���Free compulsory   education. \-'  No. 2���A legal working day of  eight'hours.  No. 3 ���Government inspection of  all industries.  No. 4���The abolition of the contract system on all public works.  No. 5���The public ownership of  all franchises, such as railways, telegraphs, waterworks, lighting, etc.  No. G���The abolition of Asiatic  immigration, the application of the  educational test and the abolition  of inducements to foreign immigra-  -tion to settle'in the Dominion.  No. 7���The abolition of child labor by children under 14 years of  age-  No. 8���T|ie adoption of the $250  deposit required of candidates for  the Dominion house.       ,  No.. 9.���Compulsory' arbitration  of ,labo��tdispivte8;v.%-".-.L--'-���..-���.. ,~. s---  No.   10.���Prohibition   of   prison  labor   in   competition    with    free  labor.  . No. 11.���Compulsory exercise of  the franchise.  At 12:45 the platform was finally  adopted, and ,the ,delegates determined to leave the matter of selecting a candidate over till morning.  Accordingly an adjournment was  made to 9 o'clock, a. in. The balance of the convention's business is  to choose a man to carry the Independent Labor ' Party's banner in  the coming struggle. The task is  one of no small magnitude, and if  the whole truth must be known  the delegates were in somewhat of a quondary on- the" point.  Before the convention opened  James AVilks was regarded as the  best available man, although Chris  Foley of Rossland was approached  on the subject aud would have been  strongly supportedjiyjihejlossland  "contingeut^had^he not positively  refused to permit his name to be  mentioned. Mr. ,\ Wilks' stand  against a labor party and candidate  has set the delegates guessing aud  none of them could say last night  who would be offered the ���nomination. Had it not been for this  feature the candidate, would have  been selected at last night's sitting.  By many of the delegates it was  still believed that the nomination  should and would be offered to Mr.  Wilks, but, the. respite has given  the convention time to look about  for another man to fill tho vacancy  should Mr. Wilks decline. It  is said, further,, that another  desirable man will be placed  before the canvention if an acceptance is procured for him by wire  before this morning's sitting.  The matter will doubtless be settled this morning, as the visiting  delegates, particularly the Rossland  contingent; desire to return home  on this afternoon's trains.  Don't Tempt the Soldiers.  London', October 3.���Lord Wolseley, the commander-in-chief, in an  open letter asks the public wishing  to honor the returning soldiers to  refrain while extending them a  hearty welcome from offering them  intoxicating liquors, as, like all of  us, they are open to temptation.  The commander-in-chief also says  he trusts the greeting to. the brave  soldiers will be something more  than excitement to excessive drink.  The Villalobos Safe.  AVashington, October 3.���The  dispatch from general MacArthur  last week announcing the disaster  sustained by captain Shields' party  on the island of Marindigue left in  doubt the fate of the gunboat Aril-  lalobos, which had conveyed the  troops to Torrijas. In consequence  the navy department has beon receiving a number of telegrams and  letters from friends and relatives  of the crew of the gunboat, asking  for information as to the affair.  A cablegram was sent to. rear admiral Kempff at Cavite asking for-  news, and the followiug response  has been received:  "Cavite, October S.���No truth in  any unfavorable reports concerning  Villalobos or her crew. Manila  paper of September 28th published  a false report. Kempff."  THEIR FATE IS UNKNOWN  -    Boxers Attack a Mission.  Tien-Tsin, September 5.���Thirty-  five miles from Tai Yuan is the  British mission Hsion Chou on the  great road. There are at Hsin  Chou six persons, and their fate is  unknown. They"were Mr. and Mrs.  Dixon, Mr. and Mrs. McCurran and  an unmarried man and woman. At  the outbreak of the trouTble it is  thought that the entire party fled  to the mountains and escaped safely  from the village. - Since then no  word has been heard 'of V them ^ahd:  their fate is only conjectured.  Owing to the friendliness of the  local official at Tai Kua, which is  about 20 miles from Tai Tuan, the  American board of -missions there  escaped'the first attacks upon for-"  eigners. - About July 31st, a band  of 800 Boxers swept down upon the  place ,and attacked the mission  premises. One of the native missionary assistants was killed and  the Boxers, smashing the gates of  the compound, effected an entrance.  There were six people in the mission with F.' Davis, C. D. Williams,  D. H. Clapp and wife, Miss; Rowen  Ford and Miss , Susan Partridge.  The three men took positions on  the roof of the mission building and  ^madeTaTgairaiit defe'nee: until their  ammunition was exhausted. The  Boxers rushed them and they were  cut down, fighting to the last'  with clubs and guns. The three  women then fled to the rear court,  where they weie found and slain.  There was a native woman teacher.  The bodies were thrown into the  flames of the burning mission building after being * beheaded. The  heads were taken to Tai Yuan and  placed in the baskets on the gates,  and it is said the "hearts of the men  were cut out and carried to Pekin.  One hundred native Christians were  killed at the same time. These  people had iio,means of resistance  and were simply slaughtered.  'Among the missionaries whose  fate is unknown lip to the present  are Mr. and Mrs. Ogden of the Swedish mission at Yung Ning Chou.  They escaped with their child in a  boat, but have not since been heard  -of.���At Clnen-Tei-two-womenrMiss  Palmer and Miss French, were stationed. They are known to haAre  escaped as far as Hung Tung.  Chinese soldiers say that some of  the foreigners were killed iu that  vicinity.    A Rescue at Sea.  Boston. Massachusetts, October  3.���The British steamer, Amen,  captain Carr, from Sam a rang, Java,  via St. Michaels, arrived this afternoon, having on board the captain  and 13 of the crew of the Liverpool  ship EHerslje, which was abandoned  at sea and dismasted and waterlogged. The steamer rescued the  men on the afternoon of September  29th, after they had been buffeted  about by fearful seas for ten days.  One member of the crew, John  Graham, a native of Glasgow, aged  21, was lost overboard on the morning of September 18th, by falling  from aloft, where he had been sent  to furl the upper main topsail,  Endorse the Emperor.  London, October. 3.���The newspapers here unanimously applaud  emperor William's championship of  the combined interests of civilization and Christianity, as contained  in his reply to the message of the  emperor of China.- At tho same  time the commentators find in his  majesty's telegram a new bridge  upon which the Chinese authorities  may approach the demands of the  allied powers.  Berlin, October 3.���The reply is  generally regarded as conciliatory.  The National Zeitung things it affords "au indisputable basis for  sober and effective common action  on the part of tbe allies." J  THE END NOT YET IN SIGHT  ...

Today president* Mitchell  was informed of the'wide eiicula-  tion of a story to the effect that he  had reached an agreement with the  presidents of the coal mining, and  coal cariying railroads, and, "after  verbally denying?'the report, , he  issued the following: To the miners  and mine workers of the anthracite  region.���We haye/jns-t been informed that the report has been  circulated at Ashland to the effect  that in a conference at New York  this morning'between coal presidents and myself an agreement was  reached which will end the strike.

A^anco cjvbe, October - 3.���The  boundary dispute at Mount  Baker has come almost to an  international crisis. .^Yesterday,  a paefc-fram~of<-gooa$ - brought  iuto Chilliwack Mras seized by  American' customs officers, who  alleged that^ it crossed into  American territory. The goods  were for American owned mines,  and the American merchants  made the trouble on account of  losing trade. J. Deane, provincial surveyor, who is. endeavoring to locate the boundary line,  says it will be definitely fixed  next Saturday. It will give  Canada two miles more extent  of territory than was thought  on this side of- the line. A post,  always thought > to mark the"  boundary, was found half a  I mile out, and the line run from  < its direction wa.s consequently  > erroneous. There i.s-much ex-,  s citeraent aiid bitterness ex-  \ pressed over the seizure of the  $ goods.  lished by G. A. Bigelow in 1890.  In 1897 Mr. Bigolow sold to M.  Desfirisay, aiid he in turn transferred the business to the AVestern  Mercantile Company, Limited, iii  which company he is the principal  shareholder. Mr. DeBrisay is in  Nelson making tho transfer. AArhile  here he made many friends, who  wish him good luck in the new field  that he has chosen. What is Nelson's loss is Arancouver's gain.  Jt is understood that Mr. McCammon   will   remain   with    AA'illiam  Hunter & Co., and that the biisi  ness will  be in charge .of  Harry  AVilson.         *_  hews r oTthFIlections  f ' ���- '  Little Change, in Parliament.  London,-October i, 2 a. m.���The  results of yesterday's polling iu the  parliamentary general elections  were less striking than those of  Tuesday. The Conservative majorities still show increases in number of contests, but in a less  marked degree." On the other hand,  'the Liberals have gained additional  seats. On the whole, the indication  tips morning is that there will not  be much change in the complexion  ,of the new parliament., As matters  now stand, out of 287 candidates  returned the relative .strength of  the parties is asufollows: Ministerialists, 212; Liberals,% including Labor' member's/47; Nationalists, 28.  , Altogether the" Liberals have  gained ten seats, and the Conservatives,3 seven. ..Only ;one Conservative seat was gained'yesterday, but  -it was a-very important victory.  In the Brightside division of the  field, an industrial "constituency  held for ten years by-the. late, Anthony J. Mundella, who was-'succeeded hy Fred Miiddison" in< 1897,  the Maddison majority of. 183 was  converted by J.

AVilliam Hunter of Silverton, one  of the pioneers of Nelson, has decided to again make a business venture here. He has purchased the  stock of the AVestern Mercantile  Compauy, Limited, doing business  in the Aberdeen block as wholosalo  and retail dealers in groceries and  "provisions. The deal was completed*  yesterday, and today the patrons  of- that well-known and popular  store will be doing business with  AVilliam Hunter & Co. <>  Mr. Hunter's first business venture in Nelson was as a partner in  the International hotel, which stood  at the corner of Vernon and Stanley streets, and which".was destroyed by fire in the spring of  1S94. In the fall ,of .1.891, having  sold his interest in the hotel, he  started the first general merchandise store opened at New Denver,  then the only town in the Slocan.  The venture proved a success. He  also managed the pioneer steamboat oif-'Slocan.-'lake, a boat that  was sold to the Canadian Pacific  when that company took over all  the steamboats on the Columbia  river, and Kootenay lake. Mr. Hunter is now interested in the AVilliam Hunter Company, Limited,  carrying on business as general  merchants at Silverton, Three  Forks and Alamo.  The business that Mr. Hunter has  taken over in Nelson .was. estab-l  elections of 1895 "from; sir- AVilliam  Harcourt and sir Thomas Roe, by  sir Henry Howe Bemrose and  George F. Frey Drage.  The result of the election, in  Methyr Tydvil district of AVales  was as follows: David A. Thomas,  Liberal, 8598; James Koir Hardie,  Labor, 5745; AVilliam Pritchard  Morgan, Liberal, 4004. The Labor  party thus gains a seat from the  Liberals by the defeat of Mr. Morgan. The latter is well known in  America in connection with mining  affairs in Chiua and elsewhere.  The report of the poll at Westminster was Mr. Burdett Coutts,  Conservative, 2715; Mr. Smith, Conservative, 439. At the last election  Mr. Burdett Coutts was unopposed.  The Liberals retain their seats in  Dundee with majorities showing  that Scotland has not been affected  by the Khaki boom. Gilbert Par-  ker. the.Canadian novelist. has_been_  elected to Gravesend, securing a  Unionist majority of 738 over the  Liberal candidate, Hildebrand  Harmsworth. A curious accident  prevents the result at Newcastle,  where captain Lambton of the  British cruiser Powerful is standing, from becoming known tonight,  ft seems that a cab horse bolted  and overturned and smashed one of  the ballot boxes.  T. S. Brassey, Liberal, who was  defeated by 81 votes at tho last  general election, has reduced that  majority to three in his contest  with i major., Balfour, tho present  Unionist candidate, and the Liberals have demanded a scrutiny of  the votes.  The notable triumph of Mr. Burdett-Coutts at AVestminster is regarded by the Liberals as almost  equivalent to a victory for themselves.  Mr. Bell, has been very prominent  in railway disputes, and Derby is a  great railway centre.  Sir Ellis Ashmead Bartlotte, Conservative, has been re-elected for  the ecclesiastical division of Sheffield with an increased majority.  The following is the result of the  polling in London: Sir Thomas Roe,  Liberal, 7917; Richard Bell, Labor-  ifce, 7640; sir Henry Howe Belluse,  Conservative, 7389; Geoffry Drake,  Conservative, 0770. Mr. Belluse is  the general secretary of the Amalgamated Society of Railway Solvents. The outcome, therefore, is  one Liberal and one Laboriteelected.  A smelter at Crawford creek is  among the enterprises which events  of the next twelve months may  bring forth. The proposition ex-  ists now in the calculations "of 'the  London Consolidated > and-Richelieii  mining_companies,-now -operating  extensively on Crawford creek, and  they are prepared to go into the  matter on a proper basis' if their  properties turn out to be as good as  existing circumstances indicate.  - The Silver Hill mine promises to  become one of the most extensive  shippers in the district. This winter 5000 tons will be shipped from  the Silver Hill, and more, too, if a  larger quantity can be handled  while the snow lasts. The crew at  the mine will be employed largely  in driving a main tunnel 1000 feet  long, which is figured to tap several  large leads aud to develop the main  ore body. When this is completed  the company will know'-what its  production can be brought to, and  the smelter proposition. wilLbe disposed of. '        '-  - There are various points along  Crawford creek which will afford  ideal smelter sites. Splendid water  power, fine timber, an abundance  of lime rock in the immediate vicinity and easy grades are available,  .and the institution would draw  largely from silver-lead properties  along the lake which are now shipping, to Nelson and Trail. The  plant at the" Pilot Bay smelter  might be utilized, and the management figure that an outlay of $250,-  000 would give them a smelter in  first-class shape.

Procter returned yesterday  from Silverton where he completed  arrangements for the prosecution of  development on the Silverton Boy  group. AVork has been under way  for some time and the property is  showing up well. A crew of seven  men is at present engaged, and the  number is to be increased as the  work progresses.  The Silverton Boy adjoins the  Emily Edith, and in referring to  this property Mi. Procter says:  "Mr. Rammelmej'er was - kind  enough to show me over the camp,  and from my observations I should  say that in the event of the lower  levels now under way exposing as  good an ore body as that tapped  by the upper workings, the Emily  Edith will become one of the most  extensive���silver-lead���propositions-  in the Slocan, The crew , at  the miue numbers forty. Two tunnels are already completed and two  other tunnels are being run to tap  the lead at 100 foot levels respectively, Upraises aro also being  driven to supply the mine with air  and to drop ore into the lower  levels. The Emily Edith camp is  very properly regarded as one of  the most comfortable in the Kootenays. The bunk house is large and  includes card, writing and reading  rooms, bath rooms equipped with  hot and cold water, and individual  sleeping apartments.

New   Zealand,    which   i'or  years has been among the;more ad-,  vanced "of those political laborator-  ies where experiment and theories  regarding the   betterment  of-the  conditions of the  human  race are  being put to the practical test is  ,  the   country   without   strikes,   of  which Mr.  Lloyd, a   well   known  United   states    writer    on   labor  topics,*5 writes.   In-order that his  readers .^aright :have> the-benefit of  the widest possible knowledge  of  . the plans which apparently = are  so  successful    in    New Zealand, Mr.  Lloyd spent last year in that coun-:  try.

Auont> ten years ago New Zealand  had a:strike whielh!.alniost rplunged  the country into civil war.. To prevent; thft.reeurreiice:- ofc labor i difficulties, not'less terrible in1 -theiivre-'-  suits than war itself, those whose  duty, it was to legislate for the people determined to.-adopt.auy,_meas-  ures; however bold or novel,.-which  would put au end to the conflict between capital and ��� labor. - Accordingly,.the minister :of rl&bor, :the  Hon/ William Peraber Reeves, made  it careful "study of tiie- legislation in  r 13 now prepared to* issue Drafts and  Letters rof-Credit-on:-Skaguay, U.- S.,  Atlin, B. C.,.and Dawson City, N. W. T.  the different countries of the world  designed to harmonize  the  laborer  -and   capitalist.     The   working   of  their industrial conciliation-and arbitration  tribunals   was carefully  examined by him, witkthe couclu-  =sion^that^in=E!igland,r?thrqughont=  Europe,   America ,aud ,���>. Australia  ��� voluntary.arbitL-ation.hadJ:ailed for  generations."   There was but one  " conclusiou.and the new thing suggested was compulsory arbitration.  rMiv Lloyd gives its main  points as  follows:  1. It applies only to industries  in which "there are trade unions.  2. It does not prevent private conciliation or arbitration. '?>. Conciliation is exhausted by the state before it resorts to arbitration. S. If  conciliation is unsuccessful, the disputants must arbitrate. 5. Disobedience of the award may be  punished or not at the discretion of  the court.  -The compulsion of the law is  three-fold ��� compulsory publicity,  compulsory, reference to a disinter-  : ested arbiter���-provided the disput-  -ants, will not; arbitrate voluntarily,  compulsory obedience to the award.  It does not forbid or prevent disputes, but makes the antagonists  light their battles in. court according to a legal code instead of the  ordinary "rules of war."  There are twokinds of tribunals  ���-boards of conciliation and a-.court  of arbitration, and in both the  workingmen aud the employers are  equally represented, by men;of.their  own choice. There is a board :of  conciliation to : every "industrial  district,'- and the country is divided  into as many industrial districts by  the governor general as seems advisable. .There is but one court of  arbitration for the whole country.  The court of arbitration consists of  three- persons, who hold for three  years, appointed by,the governor  general, and of three appointees.  One ' must be chosen by hira from  Imperial Bank of .Canada  ��� HKAD,OFFICE-TORONTO.  Capital Authorized- $2,500,000  Capital-Raid up r.$2,468)603  Rest S 1,700,000  I), R.

Seventeen . new  ���local unions have. been, established  and-nearly forty per cent gain is  noted in the general membership.  An effort is to be made to organize  the women workers in tho trade.  men-nomiuated by. the workingmen  .and one from men-nominated by  'the capitalists. The third is a judge  of the supreme court.  Among other provisions no attorney general is allowed to appear  =bei'ore=theTboard3-ror=eourt=exeept  by consent of both parties, which is  "practicallyonever given." Precaution is taken to prevent'-"injurious  publicity tOithe secrets of the business. Pending.the decision -by-the  .court of;arbitration there can be no  strike or/-lockout, nor^must one be  entered, upon -to forestall such intervention except it can bo made  clear. tOrthe courtthat the business  has-been**stojiped because it Avas  unprofitable.  The conclusion; arrived at by Mr.  Lloyd is compulsory arbitration  has been a success in New Zealand  because the' people wanted to arbitrate. In-exhausting private effort  to*-establish arbitration they became educated up ���, to compulsory  arbitration. It does ; not follow  from this,.according to Mr. Lloyd,  that compulsory, arbitration would  succeed in other countries, "for a  .people? not -yet -developed enough  for the majority-to seek to arbitrate voluntarily," would be folly.  He does not claim that all capital-  :ists.:are satisfied, liortthat all laborers are satisfied, but the New Zea-  lander claims that all are at work  though not satisfied, and that compulsory arbitration .law works  ^"steadily as a force to honesty in  trade."  'While admonishing the reader to  remember -that New Zealand is the  only-country;in the world which  has inaugurated a compulsory arbitration law; he is of opinion that  similar laws might operate differently in different countries.  . The United States census of 1S90  shows that 22,700,000. persons over  ten-.years of age are ..engaged in  ���gainful occupations. Of these 18,-  000,000 are ..males and 3,900,000  -females.

An investigation by. thestatisti-  ��� cal society of 0reat ������ ���Britain proves  that Avhereas in ISOO -the unemployed numbered 2.70 per cent, in  1S90 they totalled ��.25 per cent.  From the report w*e learn when  money wages rose employment and  marriages rose and indoor pauperism fell. When wages fell all fell  but -indoor'-pauperism. "That  shows," continues the report, "how  perilously near to the line of dependence the majority of workmen  live." _______ ������  The various national organizations, as well as the American Federation of Labor, continue to report  a steady and sure growth both.in  membership and financial strength  despite unfavorable tracle conditions and many big strikes in different sections of the country.
