 DAiLY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  umtt  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  SATURDAY'MORNING OCTOBER 0  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  1/  BEGINNING OF THE END OF STRIKE  Coal Mine Operators Have Made Concessions That May  Be Satisfactory to Miners.  TEN PER CENT INCREASE IN WAGES AND CHEAPER POWDER  Piiilaoemihia, October 5.���Today's decision of the individual coal  operators to offer a 10 per cent increase iu wages to the striking  mine workers is regarded throughout the anthracite region as the beginning of the end of the strike.  Nearly all the individual operators  today made announcements of their  willingness to grant the increase  and notices to this effect will, it is  expected, be posted at tho various  independent collieries tomorrow.  .Some have already been posted. Tt  is fully believed that the few operators who have not' yet" expressed  their intention will fall into line  tomorrow and grant the increase.  According to some operators powder will be sold to the miners at  . Jfjl.fiO per keg instead of at $2.55 as  heretofore, but this reduction will  be taken into consideration in figuring the net 10 per cent advauce.  No other concessions to the strikers  are hinted at and, iu fact, it has  been openly declared by some of  the officials of the big companies  ' that ..no further concessions- be  . granted.  The individual operators delayed'  announcing   their   willingness    to  grant the increase pending the report of a committee sent by them  to New York to endeavor to secure  - some concession from  the carrying  companies. . The   committee   wa.s  . successful. and* so reported -to the  operators'* "The  feeling that fur-  ��� < ther opposition to the big companies was useless decided'them to follow' their} lead- and -grantrthe ad-  ���vance.'  It  is tho   general  opinion  that   a   great'   majorityQ of    the  strikers will be satisfied to accept  the offer.and return to work.  Further Concessions.  Philadelphia, October 5.���There  are indications that the individual  coal operators in the anthracite  field have agreed to a ten per cent  advance in mine', workers' wages  made by the big coal companies.  Representatives of the former who  have been in New York since Monday to secure concessions from the  coal carrying roads, returned to  Scranton today, and it is expected  that the entire region will be  posted tomorrow with notices from  the individual operators granting  the increase. It is believed this  will be followed by the return of  the men to work on orders from- the  leaders.    . Will Oo No Further.  New York, October 5.���The  Evening Post says: President J.  Rogers Maxwell of the Jersey Central and the president of another  coal carrying railway, who declined  to be quoted for publication, made  the definite announcement, today  that no further concessions would  be granted to the striking miners,  and that if they did not accept the  10-per cent offer the strike would  be fought out. It is supposed  that this decision was reached at a'  joint meeting of coal railway presidents and operators wliich was held  in this city last evening."  A Ten Per Cent Advance.  . Hazelton, Pa., October 5.���A.  Pardee &-Co., operating the Cranberry and Crystal Ridge mine, and  "employing-about 1000 men, posted"  a notice at its colliery this afternoon of an advance of 10 per cent.  A RDSH OF HOMESTEADERS  To Colville Reservation.  Considerable   interest    is   being  ���taken along the boundary  in the  opening of the Colville reservation.  The   territory   extends   from   the  .Columbia to the  Okanagan rivers  and is to be   available for home-  .steaders on Wednesday next, preemptions being   accepted   at   the  ,land recorder's office after noon on  that day.   The C. P. R. is likely to  reap a harvest from  the opening,  as their line to Midway runs within  30 miles of the heart of the reser-  =^vatiou-and=is=the=closest=rail=con���  nection by 50 miles.  ���    F. W. Peters, assistant general  o  freight agent, has returned from a  trip over   the   reservation, made  Cwith a view to sizing up the situation and determining on the volume  of business in prospect.  ''.:. In referring, to the reservation  Mr. Peters says : "I do not look for  as great a rush into the reservation  ns was anticipated. While there  are many fine valleys the country  is not so suitable for farming as,  was reported, a dearth of water being one of the most serious drawbacks. There does not seem to be  any excitement, and while a large  ���number of people will undoubtedly  go in, the rush will be nothing like  the Oklahoma or similar affairs.  Personally I was more interested in  the mining outlook. The country  is more like the Republic district,  heavy.rolling, prairie rather than  rocky hills, and mining development will necessitate a large amount  of sinking to reach the values. There  "are a number, of properties working aud the owners are very hopeful. The ore is free-milling and is  said to carry excellent values. On  this side of the line in the Beaverton district on the north fork of  the Kettle river a number of properties are being worked and the  outlook is very bright.  "In the Boundary Creek country  everything seems to be booming.  The Phoenix camp looks better  every day, and 1000 tons of ore was  shipped from the B. C. group last  week. The Mother Lode has  started to move ore down from the  ^mine   to   the smelter bins.     The  superstructure of the smelter is  completed, and the machinery can  be placed in position as soon as it  arrives. The Standard Pyritic  Smelting Company is going ahead  rapidly, and I am told that their  plant is on the cars for shipment  from the manufacturers at Denver,  Colorado."  Had His Fortune With Him.  iNDiANArOLis, October 4.���W. V.  Wolcott of Boston died at St. Vincent hospital from a stroke of apoplexy sustained on a Big Pour  train yesterday. Mr. Wolcott located in St. Louis about 30 years  ago. ~ He became a member of the  firm of Wolcott & Hume, publishers  of the Journal and Times at St.  =E6uisr'an^=latei^\'��l=pTiesident^f  the St. Louis Car Coupler Company.  He owned large interests in Missouri zinc mines and at the time of  his death was senior partner in the  banking firm of Wolcott & Co., of  Boston and New York. A search  of his effects brought to light the  fact that he carried with him a  large fortune. He had in his valise  $500,000 in government bonds and  about $2000 in cash on his .person.  Immigration returns show that  24,000 persons settled in Canada  the past six months.  MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY  Centering at Nelson.  In this issue appears the advertisement of the Mansfield Manufacturing Company. It will be remembered that iu April last, Ernest  Mansfield purchased the. business  and good will of the West Kootenay Brick & Lime Company, Ltd.,  the price paid being $25,000 net  cash. This investment was purely  a private affair, there being no  partners whateA'er in .the concern  except the purchaser. Mr. Mansfield informs us that he is now  making arrangements to provide  the latest machinery for the manufacture of brick and lime and he intends to get heavy cranes for the  marble quarries, from which it is  expected a big demand will set in.  The marble is a first class building  stone and is undoubtedly the mak  ing of one of the finest industries in  Canada. Enquiries have already  beeii' made from United States  cities for the stone, as well as Canadian cities, but orders would not  be entertained at the time owing to  the absence of Mr. Mansfield in  England. The Mansfield Manufacturing Company intend to hold  stocks of cement, fire brick, tiles,  etc. The lime now manufactured  by this company is in great demand, the contractors of Nelson affirming it to excel any importation,  and these are now using it for finishing purposes also. The company  have secured first prizes and medals  at the Spokane Industrial Exhibition for brick and lime rock, and  other prizes for ornamental and  building stone this year. The  goods of the firm are noted for  their merit and there is no doubt  but that a prosperous future is in  store for the new company.   '  THE AMERICAN CANDIDATES  Bryan and Roosevelt.  Rock Island, Illinois, October 5.  ���Governor Roosevelt spoke in this  city.aud Davenport, Iowa, tonight,  thus closing another day of hard  campaigning, and is beginning to  feel the effects of the arduous work  undertaken by him at the request  of the Republican campaign managers. Governor Roosevelt since  his itinerary th roughs tiie" northwestern states has been speaking  from ten to twenty times each day,  closing the,, day's labors usually  with a night meeting. He has now  been on this journey for more than  thirty days; andthoiigh beyond the  powers of^inost men/to" endure, he  is beginning to show "signs of distress and a failing voice.  Anderson, Indiana, October 5.���  The meeting which closed here at  10 o'clock tonight was the last of a  series of remarkably large political,  demonstrations made in connection  with the appearance of Hon. W. J.  Bryan in Indiana. Mr. Bryan left  Indianapolis''early this morning  with the-intention of .-visiting;- during the-day^as, many'places'as' possible in what is known as the gas  belt of the state and he almost circled the city of Indianapolis, visiting no fewer than nine counties and  making an even dozen speeches.  A Tough Sentence.  Washington, . October 5.���Private , Frank Miller, company I,  Twenty-third United States Infantry, was convicted by court martial  at Cebu, Philippine Islands, of the  charge of criminal assault, and sentenced to be "shot to death with  musketry." The case having been  submitted to the president for his  action, he commuted the sentence  to "dishonorable discharge, forfeiture of all pay and allowances and  confinement at hard labor in a penitentiary for twenty years." The  penitentiary at Port Leavenworth,  Kansas, has been designated by the  war^department^as^the^Dlace^Tof"  confinement.  THE ELECTIONS IN ENGLAND  COMPLEXION  .Of    PARLIAMENT.  MANY   CONTESTS  Mark Twain on the Stump.  Only once did Mark Twain appear in public as apolitical speaker.  As a conscientious Republican in  his political preferences, Mr. Clemens  took an active interest in the presidential campaign of 1880. While  visiting in .Elmii-a, New York, in  the fall of that year, he made a  short speech-one Saturday night,  introducing to a Republican meet-;  ing general Hawley of Connecticut.  In the course of his���.;remarks Mr.  Clemens said :  "General Hawley is a member of  my church in Hartford, and the  author of 'Beautiful Snow.' Maybe  he will deny that, but I am only  here to give him a character from  his last place. As a pui e citizen I  respect him, as a personal friend of  years I have the warmest  regard for him, as a neighbor whose vegetable garden adjoins  mine, why���why I watch him. As  the author of 'Beautiful Snow.' he  has added a new. pang of winter,  He is a square, true man in honest  politics, and I must.say he occupies  a mighty lonesome position. So  broad, so bountiful is his character  that, he never turned a tramp  empty-handed from his door, but  always gave him a letter of introduction to me. Pure, honest, incorruptible, that is Joe Hawley.  Such a man in politics is like a  bottle of perfumery in a glue  factory���it may moderate the  stench, but it doesn't destroy it. I  haven't said more of him than I  would say of myself. Ladies and  gentlemen, this is general Hawley."  "A Seat Lost to the Unionist Government ' is a Seat Gained oy the  Boers," Says Chamberlain.  ��� London, October 0.-1:30 a.m.���  Thirty-two contests took place yes-  terday in the parliamentary general election. Most of them were  in rural districts and the results  have not yet been announced. So  far as known, however, 4.41 members have-.been, officially declared  elected and the relative strength of  the parties is as follows: Ministerialists 301," Liberals 77. Nationalists  00, Laborites 3. ' ~"! *  In the . Stretford and Widnes  divisions of Lancashire, sir John  William McClure and John Saunders Gilliat, who respectively represented those constituencies in  the late parliament, have been returned by the Conservatives with  enormously increased majorities.  Sir Robert ^Ballantyne Finlay,  attorney-general, was' re-elected as  the 'Liberal-Unionist _ candidate in  In verness. At Maidstone the Liberals  captured a seat,.their candidate; J.  Barker,, .receiving 2200 votes as  -against 2102 cast-for his Conservative .opponent, " F.-. Cornwallis, who  represented in the -late parliament  from 1899.     -/'  Thus far- the rninisterials have  gained 23 seats and the opposition  15, which would "give the government an additional 10, votes oh a  division in the* house of commons.  Last   evening Mr.   Chamberlain,  secretary of-state for the colonies,  sent the following telegram  to a  candidate :    "Let all patriotic Englishmen remember the words of the  mayor of .Mafelfing : 'A seat lost to  the Unionist government'is Na seat  .gained by"the Boers.'"  $. . .__  Pearls' From Milk.

In preparing the button  material the milk is placed iu a  large vat and curdled with -rennet.  It is kept at a certain temperature  till of the proper consistency, when  a fine white powder is added and  the whole is cooked for an .hour.  After this the curd is separated  from the whey, and the solid part is  ready for packing off to a button  factory to be molded into the desired shape for buttons.  CANADIAN IVULITIA AFFAIRS  A Visit From" Colonel-Foster.  Colonel Foster of Ottawa, adjutant-genera! of the Canadian mili-  ;tiaTis'a^guest~at^tlie^HoteI^Ph^irr  He is on a trip through the province and will run up to Kaslo today, returning by way of Slocan  lake.  Colonel Foster is on a month's  leave of absence from the militia  department, but is gathering pointers as to the condition of the militia  in British Columbia. The Rocky  Mountain Rangers in particular,  being a new corps, has enlisted his  interest; He states that iii his opinion the various companies should  have drill halls if their efficiency is  to bo maintained and states that,  if his recollection is correct, a recommendation was placed before  the minister of militia through the  proper official channels to the effect that frame drill halls should be  erected at each company headquarters on sites to be given by  the municipalities where the buildings should be located or the 'citizens of the towns.'.-.- He also eon-  firmed the report as to the grant of  $300 for rifle ranges and was pleased  to learn that the local Rifle Association had manifested great interest  in rifle shooting.  Touching on possible changes in  tdie militia regulations, colonel Foster remarked that while uo action  had been taken as to uniforms, his  idea was that the experiment of  allowing regiments to parade during the summer in shirts of a uniform color and pattern without  jackets or tunics should bo continued, the experience at the last  camps being that the men did their  work better and more willingly in  shirtsleeves than when attired in  conventional uniform.  He expected  also to see the straw hat made a  permanent feature of summer.  The straw headgear was supplied  to the government at the rate of  eight for a dollar, and the hats  were just the thing for- a brief  training. For active service a felt  hat of similar shape and size could  be substituted, and the necessary  wearing qualities secured without  inconvenience to the militiamen.  In peace the felt hats, which co9t  about $0 apiece, were too expensive. Any change along this line  would not, however, affect the  Rocky Mountain Rangers, who  have the distinction of being the  only regiment in the service to be  equipped with felt headgear.

Paris, October 5.���Regarding  China, the peace congress, after recognizing and pointing out the primary causes of discontent upon the  part of the Chinese, urged that the  solution of the conflict be just and  equitable and in conformity-, with  the inalienable right of populations  to freely dispose of themselves.  The congrcssalso characterized the  Armenian massacres as the most  odious deed of recent times and expressed the.hope that the universal  indignation of the civilized world  would force the governments to  find a radical solution.  Continuing, the congress pointed  out the moral and material injury  rising from formidable armaments  and recommended, the governments  to study these questions, on the solution of which' it asserted depended the prosperity and the very existence of the nations.  The congress then recommended  international arbitration and urged  the conclusion of treaties making arbitration permanent andobligatory.  It is claimed:the congress has .thus  placecrbefore'the- world''the'basis>  for a preliminary study of international differences as they occur in  order to facilitate pacific solutions  before irritations spread to the ill-  informed masses.  Princess Hatzfeldt Gets Her Million.  .. Princess Hatzfeldt, the daughter  of C. P. Huntington, is in no danger  of losing the legacy of $1,000,000 in  trust bequeathed to her by the  Southern Pacific millionaire. A  dispatch from San Francisco says a  search' was being mado for adoption papers, H. E. Huntington having made a fruitless search in New  York for the documents, and being  much worried because they cannot  be found. It is said in the Southern Pacific railroad office' that Mr.  Huntington's wiil left tho trust  fund i'or the princess especially,  aiuLitmade no-difference^wJietheik  adoption papers could be produced  or not. It wa3 also said there were  no adoption papers on record and  never had been any, consequently  no search has been made for them.  The princess was the daughter of  Mrs. Pi-en tis,. a sister of Mr. Huntington's first wife.  Lord Roberts in Brief.  Lord Roberts became commander-  in-chief on his birthday.

Vancouvrh, October 5���[Special  to The Tribune].���Mayor Garden  tonight accepted the Conservative  nomination for Burrard district,  MINING INDUSTRIES OF MM  Two Distinguished French Visitors Who Are Interested  in the Chapleau. at Lemon Creek.  GOOD PROSPECTS DEVELOPING IN VARIOUS SECTIONS  The marquis de Grammont  and  viscount de Dusmit of Paris, France,  were in the city yesterday.   Both  gentlemaen   are. directors   of the  French   syndicate which   controls  the Chapleau mine on Lemon creek,  and are here for the purpose of inspecting the property.   They "will  remain in the district, making Nelson their headquarters   until- the  mill at the'Chapleau is in good running   order.   The   plant   is to be  started   within   a   few   days  and  should be running smoothly by the  end of the month.  Viscount de Dusmit states that  his company is well satisfied with  the Chapleau up to the present and  believe they have a good' investment. "If the property proves as  good as we believe it to be," he  says, "We have the capital in Paris  to take up.other promising properties. Comparatively little French  capital has come into this district  so far as I am aware, but the result  of our experiment at the Chapleau  is being watched with considerable  interest, and success with us means  more capital for the .Kootenay.  Our syndicate has done everything  possible in the direction of development and plant to thoroughly  demonstrate the merit of the Chap:  leau and undoubtedly a portion of  the French" capital awaiting profitable investment will come this way  if our venture is as successful as we  hope and believe. Capital seeks a]  good investment regardless' of.  other-circumstances, of course, but'  aside from that.Fi-enchmen. are par-~  "^ticiilaVly^vell^'disposed-'-toward'-  Canada. " The Canadian, mineral  exhibit at the Paris -exposition was  admirably arranged and. attracted  great interest. - I should think the  display would attract general attention, though I was-, naturally  greatly interested because of my  connection with the Chapleau."  J. M. Williams, manager of the  company, leaves this morning for  the Chapleau. He will be accompanied by the marquis de Grammont and viscount de Dusmit, who  will spend several days at the mine.  Some Kich Quartz.  Sol Johns of the Royal hotel has  a couple of remarkable specimens of  gold ore from the Elk claim, one of  the Royal Arthur group, owned by  a local syndicate of which he is a  member. The rock is decomposed  and=is=literallyJield=together-by=the=  wire gold running through it in  every direction. One piece is'about  two inches square and is estimated  to contain $00 worth of bullion,  while the second piece is claimed to  contain $25 in gold. The specimens  were found-buried deep in the  wash, and further investigation  was prevented by a rush of water.  The Royal Arthur group is crown  granted, and $8000 has been spent  in work outside of the figure originally paid for the claims. Several propositions to handle parts of  tiie group havo been submitted to  the owners and are now under consideration.     ________  Nelson Takes a Prize.  Word was received here yesterday by wire of the result of the  judging at the Spokane fruit fair.  The British Columbia mineral exhibit was awarded first prize, and  the Nelson section took firsb 'prize  -for the best individual district display. The Mansfield Manufacturing Company of Nelson was  aworded first prize for tlieir display of brick and lime and second  prizes on their ornamental and  building stone. The Nelson mineral exhibit included specimens  from sixty-two properties.  Kearnes Has a Good Mine.  John MeLeod, postmaster at  Tii'iir, was in the city yesterday,  lie stated that Henry Kearnes,  formerly of the Nelson Transfer  Company, is developing tho Carthage claim northeast of,the Vmir  mine, and that specimens from the  claim equal in appearance anything  in the district. It is asserted that  Kearnes has found the Vmir lead  ���S31  T  on   the   Carthage.    The le-.  described as running, in a ���  westerly direction without t , _���'-. $'$��  or break, and while the abs '   -."&!:,��.  any outcrop on the adjoining ;������&��;���*����.  erties has made it difficult tey'^0^S%  .the mineral, its discovery won' jSj^'j^i  Carthage demonstrates the cohtin--?��  nance of the ledge..

He   is  working the  Tamarac  group on Springer creek -'  in the interests of a Seattle syndi- I  cate arid states that matters are"  progressing satisfactorily    at "the ~  property.     A    comfortable    bunk  house, '10 by 24, is about constructed,.  the intention of the syndicate be- ,  ing'to work a crew of 10 or  12 men _  all winter.     Mr. Holden  has  with '  him a number of specimens  of ore  from the property.       lt -is gray ^  "copper      carrying"    high ��� values  aud the specimens indicate a first-  class paystreak.   The present crew  is drifting  on   the lead at   three  points and a large amount of ore "  will be taken out in  the course of  development. ���'. A "wagon  road will  probably be built to the  group so  that this oro may be shipped during  the winter.    -  Struck* it Rich.  George Doyle, a well known Nelson man who went into the Kettle  River country last spring and  opened a general store at the new  town of-Wauehope, seems to have  made a strike. He acquired a  claim near the town on which development has been done all summer. An excellent lead has been  located, and samples were sent here  to be assayed. The result was even  better than, had been anticipated,  and a deal for the property is on  the cards. The oro is arsenical  iron, carrying high values in gold  and some silver. It" is reported  that a number of Fire Valley  claims are showing up well, and |  that the prospectors who went in  with last spring's rush are building  permanent camps, and many intend  to winter there.  Sparrows Nest in a Clock.  In the face of the clock of the  clock of the parish church of St.  Matthew, Bethnal Green, London,  aro two small holes, which from the  pavement do not appear large  enough to admit even a tiny bird.  Vet these apertures have been  chosen by sparrows as nesting I  places, and the birds can be fre- 1  quently seen flyiug to aud from I  their strange abode.  ^IjjSii  'W  toS_w THE TRIBTTNJ3:  NELSOtf B.

One of the  most successful, and at the same  time one that is   making   Nelson  known   beyond   Kootenay,  is the  Mansfield Manufacturing Company.  Tliis compauy manufactures brick  and lime and owns the only marble  .   quarry opened in the province. The  products of   the   company are in  great demand, because of their excellence.     In competition with the  products   of   the   industrial   companies at Spokane they are found  ^to-bo-of-superior-qualityi���The-de--  mand for one of the products (lime)  is so great at present that the company finds difficulty in furnishing a  supply.     This is noteworthy,  because lime can be readily imported.  At the Spokane exhibition the lime  and brick of  this company were  awarded,   in   each   instance,  both  first prizes and medals.    The company intend to keep pace with the  growth   of. the country, and   are  making preparations to build lime  warehouses, for the better storing  and handling of their product.   It  is also contemplated to install new  machinery in the brick yards and  put in hoisting cranes at the marble  quarries.    Nelson   is   to the front  now, and  industrial  ventures like  that of the Mansfield  Manufacturing Company will keep it there.

Socialists Make Trouble.  Ghent, Belgium, October 5.���A  serious conflict took place today between a number of Socialists and  soldiers during a performance by a  regimental band. The latter was  playing a royalist air and the Socialists began singing revolutionary  songs and stoned some soldiers,  who were in company with the  bandsmen. The soldiers thereupon  drew their swords and in the fight  which followed several persons were  wounded, especially the bandmaster  and an officer. Many arrests were  made.

In the course of the terrible march  of the Irish Fusileers from Dundee  l o Ladysmith tho men were much  fatigued, owing to the rough journey. One man in particular stumbled along as if walking in his  i-leep. An officer passed. "Sir,"  said Michael, "what country is this  .we're marching over?" "The Natal  tableland, my man," was the reply.  "Bedad, sir," said Michael, "I think  t.he table's turned upside down, and  .we're walking over the legs of it!"  The night clerk of a leading hotel  of Washington, J).

"  The following excerpt from Margaret Macaulay's little volume'On  her brother, whicli was printed in  1804 for private circulation, shows  Macaulay's cat-alike ability always  to fall on his feet: "One day Tom  said jokingly that there are some  things which always inclined him  to believe in the predominance of  evil in the world. . Such, he said, as  bread alwayafalling on the buttered  side, and the thing you want always being tho last yon come to.  ���Now',! will take iip" volume after  j volume of this Shakespeare to look  for "Hamlet/' Ton will see that I  shall come to it the last of all.' The  (iirst volume he took up opened on  'Hamlet.'       Every    one    laughed.  j'What eah be a stronger proof of  what I said ?' cried he ; 'for the first  time in my life I wished that what  I was looking for would come up  last, and for the first time in my  life it has come up first.' "  Henry W. O'Melveny, of Los  [Angeles, had a unique experience  j last week at Madern, where he  Iarrived at midnight, flirty, unkempt,  and unshaven, -after a ten-days'  [fishing trip in the interior.     After  Is now prepared to' issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  sitting down in the deserted station,  to await the arrival of the Los  Angeles train, O'Melveny decided to.  purchase his railway ticket before  the ticket-window opened. Only a  week before, the railroad agent of.  a neighboring station had been-  robbed; so when the traveler opened'  the side door of the ticket-room and  walked iu, the Madera agent instantly sized him up as a road  agent, and, drawing his gun, held it  in his right- hand, awhile with his  left ho drew his money from the  drawer and, thrusting it into the  open safe, slammed the door. Theii,  keeping O'Melveny covered with  his revolver, he reached over and  rapped out on the telegraph key  for the benefit of -the assistant-  operator in the next room.thesingle,  word "tough," while the assistant  answered in tho same fashion, "Yes;  very tough." fn the meantime  O'Melveny had extracted a twenty-  dollar bill from hi.s pocket and requested a, ticket to Los Angeles.  The tender of so much wealth by  such a disreputable fellow was, positive proof in the agent's mind that  it was a scheme to have him open  the safe for change and then rob'  him. Backing away as far as the  partition would permit, and holding  his revolver ready to fire, the agent  was about to take desperate mens-  nres, jyjiejijfchj^assistant^recognizecL  the supposed robber and rapped out  on the key : "Los Angeles lawyer;  O.

Wilkio, General Manager.  K. Hay, Inspector.  When Robert Toombs of Georgia was a young man in his twenties he raised a volunteer company  and joined geueral Scott, who was  then conducting a campaign against  the Indians in Florida/ Scott  knew the character of his red enemies, and was in no hurry to attack  them in'tho positions which they  had chosen. His delay did not suit  theiGeorgia captain, who ono night  paid a visit to the general's tent,  wliere he found Scott engaged in a  pleasant conversation with a dozen  oflicers of high -rank. When asked  what he desired Toombs said in a  stern tone: "I desire to know, sir,  whether the army will march  against the enemy within the next  few days." "I am not ready yet to  answer that question," replied the  general, with a smile. "Then, sir,"  continued the youthful captain, "I  will notify you that unless the  army marches tomorrow I propose  to go forward with, my company  into the very heart of the Indian  territory! " When this astounding  declaration was made the oflicers  expected the genoral to administer  a withering rebuke; but as Scott  admired the youthful captain's  bravery, and was willing to overlook his breach of military discipline, he contented himself with  answering in a quiet, soothing tone:  "Very well, captain���very well,  captain, use your own pleasure, by  all means. Take your company tomorrow and march into the Indian  country.    We may follow you a  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Stroet  J. M. LAY, Manager.  few weeks later. But don't wait  for us. Take your-company ancl go  ahead. Good night,' captain I"  Toombs, of course, did not march  his company agaiust the enemy the  next day, but remained at his post,  and was an exemplary officer during the remainder of the. war.  Great Britain's Weakness.  San Francisco Argonaut.  Even if the war in .South Africa!  were over, and the burghers. of the  Transvaal had been nominally subdued, England's weakness, from a  military view-point, would still be-  . deplorable. To the unpleasant but  undisputed facts bearing on this  subject attention has been of late  directed in the Loudon Times^and  National "Review. It seems that  the total number of men landed in  South Africa'from the outset (exclusive of the forces furnished by  the Cape Colony, Natal, Canada  and Australia) has been 204,000, of  whom 71,000 belonged to the army  reserve or militia reserve, 21,000 to  the militia, and 20,000 to the yeo-  manryj or volunteers. A deduction  of the reserves, militia, yeomanry  and volunteers, who cannot long.be  kept under the colors in foreigu  parts, leaves 02,000 regulars still  liable to service, from which figure  must be deducted however, at least  J.O,OOO^time-oxpii'ed==meir;="anotheF  14,000 to replace the men drawn  from India and the coaling stations;  and, finally, the losses through  death, wounds and disease, which  cannot be far short of 7000 in the  aggregate. That leaves just 01,000  nieu, every one of whom will be  needed in South Africa for at least  six months after this writing, wliile  it is admitted that 50,000 or more  will be needed for a year. Thus,  automatically, does the bulk of the  British army vanish, so far as the  defense of the British Islands is  concerned. It may be that lord  Salisbury has these facts in mind  when he shrinks from embroiling  England with her continental  neighbors on account of divergent  interests in China.

The cast for "Mikado" had a  splendid rehearsal last night at the  opera house, the orchestra practicing wifch the chorus for the first  time.

A Nelsou wholesale merchant  Avho has just returned from a trip  through the-Kelowna, Vernon and  Kamloops districts, speaks enthusiastically aboub the fruit crops there,  and particularly wibh reference to  the Alexander apple; which is largely grown and comes to remarkable  perfection.  . He says: '.'I havc never, seen anything to equal.the display of .apples  at the.<;Kelowna and  Vernon .fairs.  -The largest gipple exhibited  ab  the  Chicago ...exposition    weighed    25  ounces,   but. an. Alexander apple  was shown at Kelowna which tipped the scales at 28  ounces, and 25  ounce   apples   are   common.     The"  fruit is really magnificent in  appearance and in quality it closely  resembles Ontario fruit.   It is  so  abundant that chickens are eating  apples under the. trees in the orchards.   I asked* one grower why  these   splendid 'apples   were   not  gathered, and his' reply Avas, 'The  market'is not good enough to make  it Avorth while/   The Coldstream  ranch, owned "by   lord Aberdeen,  Avill ship 250 tons" of fruit to the  North west and Kootenay this fall.  The ranch started out. with a production of five tons-and . their output increases rapidly year by year.  It is a. model farm.
