WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  - NELSON:  FRIDAY MORNING OCTOBER 5  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  if  FOLEY IS THE LABOR NOMINEE  The Convention After Deliberating- At Length Decides  on a Candidate.  WHILE AT WORK IN THE DEPTHS, HE RECEIVES THE NEWS  From the 400-foot level of tho  Centre Star mine at Itossland Chris  Foley yesterday accepted the invl-  .tation of the Labor convention in  ' this oity to carry the standard of  the Independent Labor party in the  forthcoming campaign.  After   failing to   induce   James  Wilks of Nelson to accept the nomination, the delegates turned to Mr.  ���   Foley, and  a telegraphic message  was "sent to leading Rossland labor  men, who were requested to place  the convention's message before the  nominee.   A delegation was gathered together and Mr.  Foley was  found at work in the Center Star  mine at the 400-foot level.   The details of the interview are not to  hand,   but   the deputation   wired  back to Nelson that Mr! Foley had  accepted the nomination.  ' ' The convention resumed business  at 9 o'clock   yesterday    morning.  After some'discussion the question  of nominating a candidate was gone  into.   The poll-being declared open  four names were placed before  the  convention,    these    being    James  Wilks,   secretary   of   the    Nelson  Miners' Union; Chris Foley, of the  Rossland   Miners'   Union;   Arthur  Ferris, president of the   Rossland  . Trades   and   Labor    Council,   and  John  McLaren,   president   of   the  Rossland Carpenters'.Union. Messrs.  ��� McLaren and Ferris were present  at the convention as "delegates and  l&jpth .withdrew from the running,  -agreeing that with such strong men  1 available as the other gentlemen  ' name _it��"w6uld bei unfair to the  party   sfioulfl^" thoy   permit   their  names to go to a . ballot.   This left  James Wilks and Chris Foley alone  - in the field and on a division Mr.  AVilks carried' the convention by a  liberal majority.   The nomination  was tendered to Mr.  Wilks after  lunch and declined. ���  lu view of Mr. Wilks' stand it  was concluded to offer the nomination to the convention's second  choice. Mr. Foley was not present  at the convention, an important  contract on which- he is engaged  having detained him iu Rossland.  , Ife is one of the most enthusiastic  and capable men in the new independent labor party, and although  it was distinctly understood that  he did not seek the nomination, the  Rossland delegates stated that iu  the event of it being deemed essential to the party's success, Mr.  TFoley~would~step_into~the���breach?  Accordingly an urgent message was  dispatched to him tendering the  nomination and assuring him of the  party's undivided support. After  some delay a reply in the affirmative was received. The nomination was then made unanimous.  The discussion of ways and means  of conducting tho campaign was  gone iuto and resulted in the formation of a general .campaign committee as follows: Rossland,  Thomas Brownlee; Greenwood,  Charles Wilson; Sandon, Percy  Johnston;   Moyie, II. II. Dimmock ;  Kimberley, Harry White; Slocan  City, Johu A. Foley; New Denver,  Duncan J. Weir ; Silverton, Joseph  Brandon; Whitewater," J. J. Macdonald ; Ymir, Alfred Parr; Kaslo,  Duncan McPhail; Nelson, Walter  Kee; Phcenix, James Riordan;  Revelstoke, Frank Craig.; Kamloops, John Savage. The committee  was instructed to add to its number  at points not-already represented  to the number of twenty-four.  James Devine, ex-secretary of the  Rossland' Miuei'9' Union and the  president of tho District Miners'  Association, was appointed secretary-treasurer of the general committee.  The convention closed with cheers  and a tiger for candidate Foley.  On being interviewed by a reporter of Thi;: Tribune last night  at the conclusion of the convention  of the Independent Labor party,  Mr. James Wilks, whom it was generally considered would be the candidate of the party in the approaching campaign, made the following  statement:-   "It was simply a case  of selecting the strongest and best  candidate and   one   that   is most  likely to carry the party through a  vigorous campaign to victory.    It  was a case upon which the political  aspirations of individuals must be  subordinated   to   the   triumph of  principles.-   It is true my friends  in the convention urged me strongly     to    accept   the    nomination.  But   after    careful   consideration,  fully convinced that in the event of  my declination the unanimous choice  of the convention would fall upon  the one man whom '"I believe .to  possess the confidence of the people  equally as much as myself, and a  man better, able in many, .respects  to conduct the campaign to successful issue, I consider it my duty to  retire.     In my opinion the convention has exercised excellent judgment in selecting Christopher Foley  as their standard bearer.   He is a  man   of    years. and    experience,  cautions and careful in his utterances, conservative and practical in  his ideas, and a powerful, convincing  debater   and   an  eloquent   public  speaker.    Yes, indeed, you may say  we are in the fight to stay.   We do  not in any way underestimate the  powerful    influences     against    us  in    the.     fight,     and     we     propose to  give the two old parties  a   good   race.       We   have    live,  active organization in every town  in   the Kootenays  and  Boundary  which   will,   we    think,   prove   a  strong advantage to us, and as soon  "a~s"~the~campaigiTis~l>7r~wir~wi I Hiave  our campaigners at   work in the  Yale, Lillooet and Cariboo districts,  and we confidently expect that the  results will  surprise many of the  professional politicians. We have no  hesitation iu saying that Mr. Foley's  nomination   will 'be   hailed   with  satisfaction    by    organized   labor  throughout tho constituency, and  he will havo my undivided and unswerving support throughout the  campaign.     Wo have our best and  strongest man as   our candidate,  and we will do our best to make  him win."  ceived 5032 as against 4041 cast for  the Liberal candidate, professor  Mnrison.  At Portsmouth the Conservatives  have also gained two seats, the  polling being as follows: M. L. Ma-  gendie, Conservative, 10,818; R.  Lucas, Conservative, 10,883; T. A.

The officials ,of the Congregational church figure on opening  their new edifice at the corner of  Stanley and Silica streets on the  first Sunday in November. -Building operations have progressed  sufficiently to warrant the belief  that everything will be in shape by  that date. The first coat of paint  on the exterior is dry and the  plaster on the interior is well set.  A large staff of carpenters is rushing the woodwork ahead rapidly.  The new. Congregational church  promises to be one of the neatest  and most attractive places of worship in Nelson and it will be the  first church in the city to have a  gallery. The auditorium is 42 by  50 feet with seating room on the  ground floor for 225 persons and in  the gallery for 175 more.-' The aggregate ean be increased by fifty  .by. opening,the.parlors.,, The pulpit  and choir gallery is located" in the  northwest corner of the building  and the pews will be arranged in  semi-circular order, facing, the pulpit. The building is well lighted  and will be heated with hot air.  On the Stanley street front of  the - church are two large rooms.  These will be utilized as headquarters for a young men's club.  One of the apartments will" be furnished by the ladies as a parlor and  the second, which is the larger of  the two, will be devoted to recreation. A third apartment, located  in the basement, will be fitted with  gymnastic apparatus. The club is  to be quite undenominational, and  a score of young men have signed  the membership roll now in circulation. Rev. William Munroe hopes  _to_haye_the_cIuban_operation-with--  in a couple of weeks.  Rev. father Welch, parish priest  of Rossland, was the guest of Rev.  father Ferland yesterday. Father  Welch is returning from a lengthy  visit to England where liis relatives  reside. He also ran over to the  continent and was present at the  Oberamraergau Passion Play. Father  Welch refers to this in similar  terms to those used by other clergymen in commenting on the production. "It was," ho says, "a marvelous" play. The peasants who took  the various roles seemed to have  transcended the stage of acting  and actually lived their parts. I  saw strong men shaken with feeling  aud after the most powerful situations no applause was heard, the  spectators being too intensely impressed to express their feelings in  the conventional manner. The  Passion Play alone is well worth a  trip to Europe."  A project is under way to have a  union church service in Nelsou on  Thanksgiving Day, the 18th instant. The idea is to have all the  congregations and pastors imite for  the occasion and to take a collection  to be donated to the hospital building fund or a similar worthy cause.  Rev. father Drummond, who conducted the Catholic mission here  last week, has returned to his home  in Winnipeg. His lecture at Sandon  was a great success. The house  was crowded and the lecturer quite  surpassed himself.  Professor Seymour Dead.  Toronto, October 4.���Professor  Seymour, the hypnotist, is dead.

The  tended by  ceremony was at-  officers and  men  of H.  M. S. Pylade/'and United States  steamship-Abaronda. The memorial stands on-the site given by the  German government. . It is subscribed for by crews of the United  States steamship Philadelphia and  H. M. S. Royalist, Porpoise, Tataur-  anga and Torch.  News is also given of a sensational gold find in 'New .South Wales."  A Sydney paper t says: A sensational gold discovery has been made  at a mine at" Long -Flat' near Gun-  dagai. Pieces': of gold, as large as  lemons, coated 'with oxide of iron,  were found, many, pieces weighing  up to threerquarters of a pound  troy. Fully. 20,000 ounces were obtained. In a' later issue it says in"  connection-with.the recent sensational - discovery! at tl?e Robinson  and Rios* min'eV.at' Long- Flat, in  Gundagaiv -district,. .nothing was  done on .the property from Saturday last until,, yesterday, wljen  George, R.

Half a prospecting dish of fine dirt taken from the  bag panned out about 25 ounces of  gold. Gold still shows quite as  good in the roof drive, there being  apparently a seam of almost pure  gold.  In a recent parliamentary discussion on the proposed Pacific cable  between the colonies and British  Columbia, right honorable R. J.  Seddon, premier of New Zealand,  said: "The position on the great  imperial work is not of an altogether satisfactory character. Prospects, however, are much more  favorable than they were some  little time - ago,_ for it looked as  though Victoria and New South  JtVales_were_prepared_to_acoept_anT  offer made by the Eastern Extension Company, which would have  prejudiced construction of the  Pacific cable. 1 am glad to say  that theso governments are again  in line with Great Britain, Canada,  Queensland and Now Zealand. This  being the case, there is overy  reason to anticipate that construction work will soon be put in hand,  Since the matter was last brought  under your notice tlio committee  reports that representatives of  colonial and other governments interested in the cable havo met in  London and have gone very carefully into details, the nature of  which has not been published, the  report being confidential. From  what I can gather tenders will soon  be called for by the board appointed  for laying the cable. Owing to the  increased'cost of copper, gutta per-  cha, etc., it is estimated that the  expense will exceed the amount calculated upon,"  Afraid of Socialists.  Brussels, October 4.���The festivities arranged for Saturday and  Sunday in order to celebrate the  wedding of prince Albert of Belgium to tho duchess Elizabeth of  Bavaria, threatened to be troubled  by Socialist demonstrations. The  Socialists propose to gather Sunday  on the square in front of the  Bourse, where the prince and his  bride are to witness a procession of  7000 school children. The Socialists' organ, Le People, calls on the  populace to demonstrate that they  are in favor of amnesty and universal suffrage. It deprecates disturbance of order, declaring that an immense clamor for justice will suffice  A Fool Butcher.  Paris, October 3.���There was a  serious accident today in the menagerie of a county fair held near  Piivas, in the department of Ard-  reehe.    A large audience gathered  to witness a local butcher enter the  lion's cage, play a game of cards  with the lion  tamer and drink a  bottle of champagne. The perform.-  ance   was    successful    until    the  butcher    foolishly,   and    without  warning approached the lion and  held     a    glass   . of     champagne  under his nose, whereupon .the lion  bounded upou the butcher, ground  his shoulder0 within his jaws and  mauled his body dreadfully.  AVhen  the butcher was removed he was  almost dead.   . In  the meanwhile  the audience   was panic stricken,  and   in   the   stampede   to   escape  many persons wero  trampled   on  and badly injured.

PRINCE TUAN AND OTHER LEADING BOXERS IN A BAD FIX  NELSON MINES AND MINING  The Forty-nine Wagon Road.  William Waldie left yesterday  for Forty-nine creek with a crew of  men to begin work on the Forty-  nine wagon road.' The work is to  be done under the direction of W.  A. McLean, superintendent of roads  and trails for the Nelson riding,  "and is to be pushed ahead rapidly.  It is figured that the road can be'  completed in five weeks. The syndicate which recently bonded the  May and Jennie property has,  through its British Columbia representative, J. J. Fleutot, contributed one-half the cost of the road  and it has been projected to their  mill-site. , ,���>  The road was* surveyed by James  Maberg. The "line commences at  the end of the Royal Canadian  road arid runs,.southwesterly one  mile- over a" 6 \perjV-.cent grade  through heavy brush. - -Thenco the  line is along Forty-nine creek on a  0 per cent.grade" two' miles and nr  half to the M^y-'arid: ifeuaio~;-rn.ll~  site, a total length of three autl.a  half miles. For the first mile and  a quarter the grading will be light,  growing heavier over the last half,  where'a number of small bridges  require to be construoted. The-  road wiU be nine feet wide and is  -to cost about $12,500.  Burno Thomas of Vancouver is  registered at the Hotel Phair, and  will remain in the city for some  time. He is the representative of  the syndicate which has - bonded  the Robin Hood group on the east  fork of Cottonwood creek, and has  a crew of men at work on the property. At ]3resent-they are drifting on one of the free milling leads,  and this, with other prospecting, is  to~ be-earried- on���throughout- the"  winter. Surface assays of $2-1 to  $50 have been had oif the ledge, but  Mr. Thomas states that it is much  too early to form any opinion as to  the real merit of the proposition.  Tho Robin Hood group has no  fewer than .five distinct lodges, in  nddition to which the Glad Hand  lead, on which a fine showing of oro  has been found, crosses the group.  Development at the Itobin Hood i.s  somewhat hampered because of tho  lack of transportation facilities.  Tho only means of access to the  group is by the trail along the Nelson & Fort Sheppard track from  the head of Stanley street. This  route is dangerous, a couple of narrow escapes having been reported  during'the last fortnight, The old  Ymir wagon road up Cottonwood  canyon runs within a stone's throw  of the property, but it is in such  bad repair as to be impracticable  even for pack animals. The whole  of the east fork district is staked  now, and the prospectors and others  interested hope that something can  be done to improve the road.  Captain Duncan came in yesterday from the Granite mill with a  $7000 gold brick, the result of the  last clean-up at tho mill.  Astrup's Party Arrives.  Copenhagen, October 4.���Lieutenant Astrup's Greenland expedition has arrived here on board the  Aritartic. Tho members of the expedition explored and mapped a  hitherto unknown stretch of land,  extending from Capetown, latitude  09 degrees 28 minutes north, to  Agasiz land, 07 degrees 22 minutes  north.  Washington, October 4.���Propositions of a far-reaching character  concerning   China   are   being presented in rapid succession, to this  government.      The   state   department had no sooner disposed of one  of these propositions today by delivering a response to the German  government than it was confronted  by an even more important proposition   submitted   by   the   French  government, and   within   half an  hour " formally   seconded    by   the  Russian government.     The answer  to Germany covered the subject of  punishing   Chinese   offenders and  made known that the United States  had   instructed    minister   Conger  along the lines suggested by Germany. "   These instructions look-to-'  wards securing  the names of persons deserving   chastisement, also;  whether the punishment   accords'  with .the gravity of the crimes committed, and finally iu what manner  the     United     States    and   other  powers     are     to      be      assured  that    , satisfactory ��� - punishment1  is inflicted.  Aside from these speci-'  fie purposes the note is regarded as  important   chiefly   in establishing!  the most satisfactory relations between the governments at Washington   and   Berlin.   The  Franco-'  Russian   proposal -takes ;a*, much'  broader scope and submits a pro-'  gramme under whicli the -negotia-.  tions for a complete settlement can  be  carried-forward. - The1 French'  charge, M. Thiebaut,   handed' the;  proposition to. secretary Hay .today,  and held a brief conference concern-,  ing it. - Half an hour later  M. De-;  wollaut, the Russian charge, arrived  at'the^state department and handed  :-tb:^Mi\r-Hay--aI~note -expressing., .Russian approval   of the propositions'"  just submitted-to France.   Mr. Hay  gave no formal answer to the communications, as they will go first to  the president at Canton.  The Franco-Russian proposition  is under four heads,' namely:  First���Punishment of the guilty  parties.  Second���Interdiction of the shipment of arms into China.  ��� Third���Permanent indemnity to  the powers.  Fourth���Sufficient guarantees for  the future.  In addition a suggestion is made  for the establishment of a permanent legation guard at Pekin, for  the razing of the Taku forts and  for��� the-maintenance-of_ a_ line_of_  communication between Pekin and  the sea.  Tlio impression, here in advance  of action of theso propositions by  the United States is that they con-  in  unfitting" VH  ���  a .fiiial^r  tain nothing essential  :them for consideration  settlement. ���   '     ".-���-"     Nv^  The difficulty which is likely ���tof>:  arise lies in the  placing "of 'proper;^ J  limitations upon the scope' of^ eaclr^M  head.

Crcelinan of llosslaml, who  is building tho now C. P. It. roundhouse, is getting ahead rapidly  with the work. The sills aro in  position and the frame will be  raised in a day or two. The building is to be equipped with a turntable of tho most modern description. . Three carloads of apparatus  for the table have been delivered  at the station, and it can be proceeded with as soon as building  operations have reached the proper  stage. The engine house is to be  modern in every respect, with all  the latest conveniences for handling locomotives.  The new Kootenay Railway ��fc  Navigation Company's steamer  Kaslo camo within a few miles of  Nelson on Wednesday, when she  brought J. N. Hill and party to  their car at Five-mile point. The  craft was in chargo of captain McPhee Mowat, formerly of tho Alberta, and made the trip from  KaslO to Five-mile and back, including stoppages, in four hours  and forty-five minutes, which is regarded as an excollent performance  for a new craft. It is stated that  tlio Kaslo can steam seventeen to  eighteen  miles an hour now with  her ordinary pressure. When an  additional coat of paint is given her  interior and the upholstering of tho  cabins completed tho Kaslo will be  ready for business.  Tho  C. I  ment  has  . It. steamship depart-  linen notified that tho  engines for tho now tug now outho  stocks at tho shipyard hero wero  shipped from Toronto some timo  ago and should be in Nelson about  the 15th. The boilers for the tug  were only shipped last Saturday.  Good progress is being made on tho  hull at the yards and the engines  will be placed in position as soon  as they arrive.  An announcement is made that  the steamer Marion will sail out of  this port in future. She leaves the  city wharf daily at S o'clock a.m,  for Crawford Bay. Tho craft belongs to the Lode Star Gold Mining  and -Development' Company and  was given a thorough overhauling  last spring.  E. B.

In refusing'to accept the nomination tendered him by tin* Independent Labor party, .lames AVilks has  shown that ho is a man of more  than average moral courage. Few  men can resist such temptations.  By refusing, Mr. Wilks has strengthened himself as an individual,  and has done organized labor much  more good than his election to par-  1 iamen t would do.

Wxz f&vxbtxxttei  A well-known Baker street business man remarked yesterday: "I  am going to quit politics from this  timo on, and attend strictly to my  knitting." "Jimmie" McPhee was  not tho man.  David Mark Carley and Johu  Houston are of one mind. They  are old-time union printers, aud  have seen many unions smashed to  smithereens by politicians, but  never knew of one that was organized and built up by politicians.  The Grits were a trille sad-eyed  yesterday when they heard that  "Jim" Wilks had been nominated"  by the Independent Labor party  convention, and some of them went'  so far as to say that the delegates  were merely playing into the hands  of the Conservatives.  , Those of tho Labor party delegates from Nelson, who favored  placing a candidate in the field  claimed that the candidate would  receive 000 votes in Nelson riding,  or one-half of the votes likely to be  polled. Three hundred would be  nearer tho mark.  ,"    Tun men who affiliate with what  they call the Independent" Labor  party have the same right to their  opinions,' as   have the " men   wlio  affiliate with the Liberal party .or  the Conservative party or tho Prohibition party or  the Sunday Ob-  ' servance party, and they have"- the  same right to give their opinions  expression   by   nominating  candidates', for    elective' offices,     But  once they take such action, they  then place themselves in a position  to be criticized.    They-cannot ex-  . pect to be treated as members of  trade organizations, for.they make  their   organizations   secondary   to  the furtherance of   their political  schemes, and  ambitions,  aiid few  ^oTganizatioVis^wlfether^labor   or  social, accomplish the one Avithout  damaging the other.    The question  for- all sincere members of labor  unions theii is:    Is it better, as iu-  i dividuals, to be members of a suc-  cesef ul. trades union or adherents of  . a successful political party?    Individual members of  trade organizations can no more live off members   of   such organizations,   than  can individual business men live off  members of the particular church  or society with which they affiliate.  The Tribune is of opinion that individual   members of the miners'  uniono and   the carpenters'  union  and the bricklayers' union and the  ' barbers'union of Nelson have much  to lose   and   nothing   to gain by  making their organizations political  clubs"at'a time''when the principle's  of   their   respective organizations  are not in any,way.in jeopardy.  The Vancouver newspapers are  making much over-the fact that the-1 Hard Coal  , a_ .���������������.���       Anthracite  water power   on - Stave river has  The vote in the Labbrconvenljon  was. J 0 against making a nomination to 40'in favor. Of the 10 who  voted against a nomination, 0 were  delegates from Nelson. This shows  clearly that a newspaper has little  influence with workingmen unless  it agrees with their views on all  questions.  Conservative Association.  The Conservative association met  last night to discuss organization  for the approaching campaign. . Tt  was decided to form a committee  for the purpose of completing a  "scheme of organization, and -this  was drafted as follows: John Toye',  convenor; W. E. McCandlish, Jacob  Dover, J. E. Annable, John Houston, J. A. Kirkpatrick, F. Starkey,  W. A. Macdonald, II. R. Cameron',  Severe Storms in France.  Paris, October 4.���Heavy storms  throughout Franco have done much  damage to property and live stock.  Many of tho rivers are overflowing,  devastating wide districts. The  wine growing districts are the  greatest sufferers. Over a large  area the vineyards havo beon terribly injured. Tho vines have been  beaten down, and iu many cases the  crops are almost ruined. The damage done the Haute Pyrenees  amounts to a disaster. The situation is so critical in Burgundy,  Auvergne, the Rhone and Llie Sonne  vineyards that in response to the  urgent request of tlio growers the  minister of war, general Andre, is  sending troops to aid in tho harvesting.

while the intoxication exists' that
changes the real into the unreal,
thinks that no one is right bub himself and every one should be subservient to his desires. Religion
intoxicates, but in a different
manner. People who practice it by
praying to some imaginary spirit
aro ever seeking to intoxicate themselves until the realism of this earth
becomes dim and they dwell in the
sweet beyond, where all is bliss and
Jesus leads the orchestra, while

the nectar that flows eternally in a

for. Without them all is hell.. If
a man wishes to go fishing or play
ball ou Sunday he should have perfect liberty to do so. If he wishes
to read that wonderful literary production known as the Bible, or sing
to"iTesus"until_the—gray "matter^iu"
his upper stope becomes delirious
with feasting on the glories of a
future life, he should have perfect
liberty to do so. The man who
likes Sunday ball should not try to
stop him. It would not be gentlemanly.    Tt would be rude.
The Creator' will not interfere
with anyone, no matter what they
do on Sunday. Man says he will,
but then that human atom, known
as man; is such a liar. He always
talks to suit his views, or the echo
of some tradition dinned into liis
ears, wheu as a helpless boy his
parents plastered his soft mind
with the teachings of mythology.
The creator does not care whether
a man fishes on Sunday, sings
hymns, drinks beer, or lies in the
shade reading novels. The laws of
nature when properly observed
bring pleasure. When broken it
is not necessary to ask a- priest
what hell is like. The Creator pays
no attention to creeds or prayers.
If he did Galveston would not:have-,
so much crape in sight just now. I
believe in a day of rest, but if one
kind of...people.seek to dictate how
that day shall be spent freedom
should get into the green timber of
opposition before the enemy pinion
it to religious delusive dreams.
A Wise Answer.
A bright young man of wealth
and social position, but with had
habits; recently asked a young
woman to be his: wife. Many girls
would have felt flattered, and.
would have accepted him. Her
answer was sharp and decided;
"You say-1 have qualities you wish
in the woman who is to be your
wife.   I do not know as to that.

these habits I am not willingto become your wife. Nothing but misery would come of such a union;"

Lindsay, Ontario, is doing nothing more than justice to a bravo
man in preparing a great welcome
to colonel Sam Hughes. What
errors colonel Sam Hughes has committed he has paid'for in the sacrifice of personal interests. His soldierly achievements in South Africa
stand to the credit of colonel
Hughes, to his town, his county and
his country as well. In the face of
jealousies .and. spites colonel Sam
Hughes fought himself to the front:
He proved himself a skillful commander and a soldier of unquestioned courage. The greatest demonstration that the.-town of Lindsay can plan is the just due of its
distinguished soldier-citizen.

A team of Nelson riflemen will be  entered in an international match  which is being arranged by the  Rupanyup Rifle Club of Vietoria.  This organization has invited the  Nelson men to compete in its fifth  imperial match, between teams  from volunteer corps' throughout  the British Empire. The Nelson  men will shoot over their own  ranges and the result will be cabled  to Australia. The idea has been  successfully worked heretofore and  creates considerable interest among  riflemen.  The arrangement, is that the  match' shall be fired on the day  deemedmost suitable between the  12th and 29fch of October, each competing team to use its own range.  On the conclusion of the shooting*  the scores are to be forwarded 7to  W. A. Whitehead, secretary of the  Australian club, who wjll notify all  the teams of the ultimate result.  It is provided that teams shall comprise ten men and that Martini-  Henry or Lee-Enfield rifles may be  used, teams using the latter to concede a handicap of 40 points to  those firing with the Martini-Henry  weapon. Each man is allowed two  sighters and seven shots standing  or kneeling at 200 yards and a similar number prone at 500 and 000  yards. Either or both' sighters may  be counted on score if competitors  so decide immediately, after firing.  MINING   RECORDS.
