 .**���  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  #��� *  EIGHTH YEAR,  NELSON:  WEDNESDAY. MORNING OCTOBER 17 1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  CORPORATION TO RESUME WOBK  Principal Coal Mine Operators, However, Are Not Yet  Ready to Accept Terms.  TROOPS LIKELY TO BE CALLED OUT TO PREVENT MARCHING  Hazelton, Pennsylvania, October 10.���Prank Pardee of A. Pardee  A: Company made a demand on the  governor for troops this afternoon.  TJie Lehigli & Wilkesbarre Coal  Company has also requested that  soldiers be sent to McAdoo. The  request, if complied with, will have  the effect of bringing troops into  Lucerne county for the first time  since the strike began.  Did Not Ask For Troops.  Hazelton, Pennsylvania, October  10.���The report that Prank Pardee,  manager of the Calvin, Pardee &  Com pan v colliery at Cranberry had  requested the governor to send  troops into Lucerne county is not  exactly correct. Mr. Pardee tonight denied that he had done so,  but said he and governor Stone had  - talked on the?advisability of having soldiers, in this region. It is  Mr. Pardee's belief that if troops  were stationed here it would have  considerable effect in the way of  keeping the peace and preventing  marches. Mr. Pardee added that  ,the governor told him he would refer the matter to brigadier-general  Gobiu, who is now on duty in  Schuylkill county.  This was an   exceedingly quiet  day around the headquarters of the  ,.United Mine Workers. President  Mitchell spentmost of the day in  disposing of the mail which had ac-*  cumulated during the miners' convention last: week. Mr. Mitchell  said he had received' no communication or, even, an intimation that  'the "operators '-wxiuld"--accept'"the  "proposition * made  tion. -  by the conveu-  lt was long after nightfall when  the la9t of the strikers who marched  to the Panther Creek valley returned. They were for the most  part foot-sore and weary. The distance of IS miles from Hazelton to  Coaldal is principally down grade  and the walk there was scarcely  noticed by the enthusiastic strikers. The uphill march back, however, with the added facts of a  sleepless night and failure to accomplish their purpose tended to  dampen their ardor somewhat.  Will Resume Today.  Scranton; Pennsylvania, October  10.���The Gibbons Coal Company's  colliery in South Scranton is being  put in order for work and the company says it will, begin operations  tomorrow or next day surely. The  company has agreed to grant the  strikers' demands if the strike is  raised and further that it will only  mine enough coal to fill its' contracts with the school district. District secretary Dempsey of the'  United Mine Workers said today  that the board had not acted upon  the matter but that in all likelihood  the request of the company will be  granted. The Delaware and Hudson  company's two washeries at Car-  boudale and Oliphant have resumed  operations after an idleness of a  month beyond the beginning-of the  strike.  Regarding the placing of long  trains of empty coal cars at some  of. the Lackawanna company's  breakers chief clerk, Tobey of the  coal department said today there  was no signifiaance in the move  other than the railroads yards were  overcrowded-, -and the-^breaker  switches were being used to accommodate the empty earn.  maus are making their-base of operations iu Shan Thug:" The Japanese are in force in Pekin, while  of the movements of the Americans  little is known, the present rumor  being that they have nearly all  been ordered to Manila. The whole  American policy is causing great  perplexity here, the American residents finding it difficult to answer  the foreign criticisms as to the cause  of its seeming vacillation. ���  The typhoon which visited this  vicinity on Friday last, though  brief, was of unusual severity  throughout the central portion of  the empire. Not many casualties  are reported, but the minor damages to roofs and houses will aggregate a large sum.  ,  THREE CASES DISPOSED OF  HOWARD RECEIVES FIVE YEARS  FOR  HIS -POJ.LY.

New York, October 10.���The  New York state medical association  adopted a new constitution at its  session in this city today, declaring  in effect that it was the only state  medical organization, and providing  for aggressive action to drive out  all other societies and to take their  places. The ��� constitution divides  the state into (ive sections, in each  of "which there is to be a branch of  the pareut society. These branches  are to admit to membership all  county societies that will join.  Several hundred doctors are present from all parts of the state and  from New England and the west.  Several were also here from Can-  -ada,-among-them���being���sir-James-  Grant, court physieian of Canada,  who made an address. The election of officers will take place tomorrow. The paper that attracted  the most attention today was one  on "Cocaineism" by Dr. Brothers of  Hartford. He took the position  that the use of the drug was spreading to an alarming extent and that  it was becoming one of the greatest dangers of modern society.  Locating the Thieves.  Havana, October 10.���The police  of this city have cabled to the  French authorities that on September 27 two well-known and suspicious characters, Jimi/.e Capote and  Hernandez. Febles, sailed for Spain  on the same steamer as Mrs. Horatio Rubens, who was robbed of  money and jewelry estimated at  more than $20,000 in value while on  a train between Madrid and Paris.  Tiie police authorities in Spain  were also informed that a third  man was on board the steamer and  that he also is suspected of knowing something about the robbery.  Attack' Hungarians.  Clinton, Massachusetts, October  10.���The striking laborers at the  Wachusett reserve numbering more  than 200 attacked 45 Hungaiians  imported by the contractors to  take their iilaces today and several  cut aud bruised heads and a complete suspension of all work resulted.  The laborers struck yesterdajr, demanding higher wages.  Found the Bodies.  Alamo Gorodo, New Mexico, October 16.���The charred bodies of a  man and a boy, "supposed to be the  remains of colonel A. J. Fountain  and his son Henry, have been found  in the Sacramento mountains.  Colonel Fountain and his son disappeared in January, 1S00. Later  their buckboard was found near  the chalk bluffs by a pool of dried  blood. Fountain was a prominent  lawyer, and when, he disappeared  had indictments for the arrest of a  number of persons charged with  cattle stealing. Several men suspected of the murder were arrested,  but were acquitted for lack of evidence.  Two Hundred Massacred.  Rome, October 10.���The Tribuua  publishes correspondence today  "from Asmara, southwest-of"Masso-  way, describing the massacre of an  expedition to take Assan. The expedition is said to have been composed of British, but it is more  likely that the. members were  French, as the lake is situated in  possessions ceded to France by emperor Menelik of Abyssinia. It  seems that the column numbering  200 went to lake Assan to obtain  the tax ou salt exported. Tho natives replied that they had no  money but would give cattle. To  this the chief of the expedition  agreed. Thereupon a large number of natives entered the camp of  the expedition on various pretexts  aud massacred the disarmed members of the expedition during a  bi vouac.      Steamship Collision.  Siiano-Hai, October 10.���A collision between the Norwegian  steamer Calander and the Isle Maru  of the N. Y. li. lino in Nagasaki  harbor on Thursday last resulted in  the sinking of the former in less  than ten minutes. Seventeen foreigners including five Americans  were drowned. Among the latter  the names of Mrs. Mara, Mrs. Davidson and Mr. Richardson have been  ascertained. Mrs. Davidson Avas  the wife of the manager of Clark-  son & Co. of Port Arthur, while Mr.  Richardson was connected with the  firm of Middleton & Smith of this  port.           Movement of Troops.  Shang-Hai, October 10.-A British squadron is guarding Chin Wang  biy, Russian troops are marching  on Than Hai Kwan and the Ger-  Victoria, October 10.���The folr  lowing letter was given by United  States minister Conger to the missionaries at Pekin: "Besieged  American missionaries, one and all  of you so providentially saved from  certain massacre, I desire in this  hour of our deliverance to express  what I know to, be the universal  sentiment of bur diplomatic corps  ���sincere appreciation of and profound gratitude for the help you  and the native Christians under you  have rendered toward our preservation. Without your intelligent and  successful'planning" "and the uncomplaining execution of "the Chinese I believe our salvation-' would  have been impossible. By your  courteous consideration of me and  your continued patience under  most tr3**ing occasions I have been,  most deeply touched, and for it all  I thank you most heartily. I hope  and believe somehow in God's unerring plan your sacrifice and danger will bear rich fruit in the material and spiritual welfare of the  people to whom you have so nobly  devoted your lives and work. Assuring you of raj1* personal respect  and gratitude, I remain, very sincerely yours,       E.H. Conger."  Disastrous Storm.  New York, October 1G.���A  storm struck Newark, New Jersey,  about_4_olelock this_afternoon_with  frightful force, and caused the  death of three men, fatal injuries to  at least two others, and seriously  injured three more. The dead, who  all lived in Newark, are William  Ruble, mason; Robert Warm, hod  carrier, and Joseph Bauragartner,  mason. When the storm came up  these men were at work on the new  building of the Maim Linoleum  Works. Tho building collapsed,  and the mon were buried under the  bricks and steel. Rescuers were  quickly at work, the dead bodies  taken out, and the injured removed  to the hospital.  Waldersee's Troubles,  Berlin, October 10.���The Frankfurter Zeitung prints ta telegram  from Shang-Hai today which says  that emperor Kwang Hsu has arrived at Sian Fu. The foreign  office has no official information of  the whereabouts of the Chinese  court. A high official"of the foreign office, discussing the general  situation this afternoon, said: There  is absolutely nothing new in the  diplomatic situation. We have received no information as to the  alleged difficulties encountered by  count von Waldersee in getting all  the allies to recognize his authority,  but it lies in the very nature of the  case that he would meet with solne  trouble in bringing 'them all under  one hat.      Street Car Collision.  Seattle, October 10.���Fourteen  persons wero injured today in a  collision of street cars on the line  between Seattle and Renton. A  serious disaster was prevented by  a motorman.  The fall assizes opened 3re3terday  morning as,announced. Mr. justice  Walkem presiding oii the bench.  Three cases were concluded, Dan  Stadlander receiving., eighteen  months, Fred Howard* five years  and young Maslonka-'one year.  The, sessions will be"'resumed this  morning at 10 o'clock.  H.- A. MacLean, deputy attorney  general, was present <tb conduct the  crown prosecutions, afnd the other  outside legal men in attendance  were Hon. T. Mayne Daly, Q.C, aud  A. H. MacNeill,Q.C., of Rossland, and  W. A. Whealer of Kaslo. The grand  jury was impaneled as follows:' John  A. Gibson, -foreman; James Banner-  man, R. M. Bird, J. C. T. Crofts, I.  J. Duncan, *A. H. Gracey, D. O.  Lewis, G. McFarlane, C. Miller, H.  G. Neelands'and If. R.Stewart of  Nelson, James Stewart of Rossland  aud W. E. Haddeiv of/Kaslo. Iu  opening judge Walkem explained  the duties of the grand jurors at  some length and outlined the nature of the cases, which would be  brought to tlieir notice. He also  drew attention to the fact that of  the nine criminal cases on the list  six had been brought in from Rossland and other points in the county  of Kootenay. At.the conclusion of  the charge, his honor referred in  happy language ��� to the numerous  evidences of Nelson's' prosperity,  congratulating the "grand jury on  this fact.  The grand jury retired to consider the' case of Regina ys Daniel ���  Stadlaiider.-returning shortly witli  a ^true .bill. /Stadlander -was then  put on trial for "stealing"- a "ballot"  box used at the Wassa polling  booth in the ' electoral, division of  East Kootenay at the election on  June 9th last. He was not represented by counsel. After hearing  the evidence the jury returned a  .verdict of guilty, aud the prisoner  was sentenced to IS months impris-  ment. After learning. of the verdict Stadlander maintained his innocence.  A true bill for attempted muider  was returned against Fred Howard,  who shot William T. Muller on  October. 7 th. He pleaded not  guilty and a jury was impaneled.  Howard then asked the court to  allow him a lawyer. ..This was refused, whereupon the prisoner said :  "I guess then 1 may as well plead  guilty." Mr. MacLean for the  crown said he would   accept the  held on Thursday, this being a Ie-jal  holiday for Thanksgiving.  For Galveston Sufferers.  London,  October   10.���The Galveston relief fund benefit performance packed^the Drury Lane theatre' to the utmost this afternoon.

A  INERAL SECTION  ���<Sr  Additional  Details  of the   Kettle River  Its Prospects.  Country arid  C. W. RILEY   TALKS   ABOUT   FUTURE   POSSIBILITIES  amended plea on the minor count  of shooting with intent to do bodily  harm instead of attempted murder.  In sentencing Howard to five years  imprisonment in the penitentiary  judge Walkem scored him severely.  The prisoner, he said, should have  remembered that he was on British  ground. This reminded him of a  witness, an American, who had  come before him in Rossland  in connection with a shooting  case and had shouted to  another man who was drawing a  revolver: "For (tod's sake don't  use your gun ; remember you're on  British soil." This wholesome fear  of the law, the judge concluded,  should be inculcated into the minds  of men who had a disposition to  resort to firo arms. It is stated  that as Howard was taken out of  the court room he remarked to one  of the witnesses who had testified  at tho preliminary hearing: "I'll  fix you later.'1  The last case was that of young  Maslonka, aged 10 years, who  pleaded guilty and was .sentenced  to 12 months' imprisonment in the  gaol, the crown being granted permission to send tiie lad to the reformatory if deemed advisa.ble. In  referring to the case judge Walkem  censured Maslonka's father for the  manner in which the lad had been  allow to growed up.  Court adjourned at 3 o'clock until this morning to enable the grand  jury to prepare bills. The first case  today will be Regina vs Kettner  and Frederick, in which the defendants are charged with fraud in connection with a mining deal.  During the day his honor announced   that   no court would be  Honors for Roberta.

TO  Bankruptcy of a Leading American Firm  in Yokohama���Business Generally Bad;  Yokohama, October 8, via Victoria October 10.*���The cabinet crisis  in Japan still  continues, marquis  Ito remaining obdurate and declining to take up the task of forming  a new ministry.   As he is the man  to whom the whole country is looking for guidance at an extremely  critical   juncture   in international  affairs, it is quite generally conceded that his reluctance "will soon  be   overcome.     The  latter -. arises  solely from - the fact that the new  party organized- by him. and upon  -which he must depend to carry out  his measures, is composed of chaotic  elements, entirely undisciplined as  'yet, aiid  his task  in- taking ..upon,  himself  cabinet  responsibility will  be unprecedentedly difficult.    All  this  is. acknowledged, but  at the  same time there is such unbounded  faith  in his ability and the firm  conviction that he is the only man  competent to cope with the present  international situation  that party  exigencies  must  yield  to those of  the country at large, and it is confidently expected that in, a day or  two the new ministry wilL-be announced. .  Speculation is of course-rife.as to  the personnel of the new cabinet.  Admiral Yaraamoto of the navy department is the only one of the old  ministry who will remain. Count  Inouye will doubtless be at the  head of the foreign office. Baron  Kaneko, who is well known in New  England,-is by the native papers  generally conceded "TiTphtce"anfoiig  marquis Ito's official advisers.  The bankruptcy of one of the  leading American firms in Yokohama, that of Middleton & Smith,  announced yesterday, is attracting  much attention, although it has  been known in private circles to  have been for some time pending.  The debts of the firm aggregate  some 230,000 yen, mainly to the  principal banks of tho city. There  is no doubt that business generally  is in a very precarious condition,  the troubles iu China having produced all sorts of untoward complications and stopped the wheels  of trade more effectually than  could any great calamity happening  to Japan itself.  The present disposition of the  Japanese to refuse to take delivery  of goods ordered if the market happens to be against them has come  to be a standing menace to foreign  trade. Fully 2,000,000 yen worth  of imported goods have recently  accumulated in the customs warehouses in Yokohama and the  authorities are greatly perplexed to  know how to deal with them, while  tho houses of the foreign firms are  filled to their utmost capacity. if  i eliefdoes notspeedilyeome through  some possibility at least of a settlement in China further disaster must  follow. It is now stated that the  government has decided to have the  whole of the Fifth division in north  China during the winter, it having  been noticed that the other powers,  not even Russia excepted, tire fully  increasing their forces. It is also  lemarked that there is an increasing  tendency toward independent action  by the different allied contingents.  C. W. Riley returned yesterday  from a two weeks' visit to the Fire  Valley and upper Kettle River districts whither he went to inspect a  property and to secure' a general  idea of the country from a mining  possibility.     Mr.   Riley  takes- an  optimistic view of  the future of  the Kettle River country, predicting  a marked increase in mining activity  during   the   next   year.     He  has  secured a quantity of data relating  to numerous .properties which indicate a wide field for profitable investment.  Referring to his  trip Mr.  Riley  says:     "The   first properties   encountered on entering the country  from Page's'Landing, to which point  merchandise  from   Nelson  is  consigned, are'four miles north "from  Wauehope.     Among these is ' the  Eureka   owned by   3eorge Doyle,  formerly, of   Nelson,   A. Costley,  Robert Stanfield and Fred Williamson.   The group comprises five or  six claims  on one ledge and was  staked last fall.   The lead is a very  dark colored quartz and about 00  feet wide, carrying, high values at  various points   in telluride.     The  work   on the   Eureka   consists of  about 100 feet of tunneling and a  drift is now being run to crosscut,  the   ledge.     -The   "owners   expect  within a few days to tap .the foot--  wall where the best values are supposed to exist,'at a depth of   75 to  100 feet from  the apex.     Samples  have been taken from the footwall  of this ledge on the surface from  which assays have gone as. high as  $354.- ���-    . ���..'.'���  "The Olds "property is on the  same hill about three miles wester1  ly. This group was located in 1897  by J. R. and A. H. Olds and W. M.  Page, and includes five claims, the  whole being termed the Paladora  group. All the claims have good  ledges. The main ledge on which  they are working at the present  timo is ou the Paladora claim and  ean be readily traced for several  hundred feet, the ledge ranging in  width from three to seven feet.  The work on the property includes  au eighteen-foot shaft, a thirty-five  "-���%_  Ml  *m  foot tunnel and stripping for about  200 feet.    I saw assay certificates^?-^  of samples from the shaft that ran '''*"  from $22 to  $48.     The thirty-five^  **  foot tunnel is on another claim in a^i-^:  ledge   which   carries   much Jof ^its^vSg  values   in    free    gold. '   Por^ttie"  amount of work done on this pro-'J  perty it has shown up remarkably'  well and will  undoubtedly become  a producer.      The   Paladora, was.  under option to a syndicate when I *���  visited   it, but   the   names of the *  parties were not divulged. ,      ���  "A number of other claims are"  staked about "the Paladora and  there are several excellent showings.

This is the common sense way to look at the mat-  tor, and it is shared alike by Liberal.1? and Conservatives. But it is  not satisfactory to the man of principle that edits the Evening Miner  of Nelson.   THE LOOTING OF TIEN TSIN  Described by a Canadian Soldier.  Toronto Slur.  One of the few Canadian boys  who have found their way to the  land of the Celestials during the  recent troubles is Mortimer Montgomery of Hrantford, who was in  St. Paul, Minnesota, when the call  for United States recruits came last  spring ami who forthwith seized  the opportunity to seo active service in thefar east. Two brothers  at present reside in Toronto, and in  a letter to them from the camp of  the 3rd Artillery in Tien-Tsin, under  date of September,2nd, Mr. Montgomery gives the following description of the goings-on there:  "You-can't imagine what the city  looks like. All the buildings near  the walls are like so many sieves  ���I mean those still standing. One  of   the boys,   writing home,  said  that the place was all shot to ,  and I think that is tho truth.  "Since we came here Ave. have  been doing like all the soldiers of  the other nations���looting stores,  houses-and Chinamen. Every soldier in Tien-Tsin has pockets full  of jewelry and silver bullion from a  mint, /as- well as all kinds of silk  robes -and wearing apparel. Dead  Chinamen are ���'. lying- -around tho  streets, and every day the river receives a-consignment of their bodies.  "Of all the nations the American  government i.s the only one that  pays the poor, half-starved beggars  for working. The Russians make  them" work all day without a thing  to eat, then shoot them at*night if  they" give out. Dogs are treated  battel in our country than the Chinamen are here. Pigtails are scattered all around in the streets like  pieces of rope.  "Here at Tien-Tsin are stationed  soldiers of every nationality���British, Americans, Japanese, Russiaus,  French, Germans, Italians, Chinese,  Sepoys from. India, and marines  from all the-ships at Taku. The  Third-Artillery will stay-here all  winter"and do garrison duty, for  the fighting is over-as far as the  American soldiers- are-concerned.  We move into our new canning  grounds in** a day or so, and will  stay there till we rig up some building to serve-as barracks during the  winter.   "l~enelo.se a piece of ribbon which  I took out of a Chinese store here.  The Chinaman that used to keep it  tried to stop a bullet with his chest  tho day before 1 got it, so he didn't  charge me anything. I would send  a silk robe if I could put it in a"  letter, but as I can't you can keep  this bit of ribbon as a souvenir of  the fall of Tien-Tsin."  Tvould make it subservient to their  own selfish ends, or convert it into  a political engine. They should  also be jealous of the reputation  and good name of the rank and file  of the society as well as of its  chosen leaders. For while the association is ennobled and commands  the respect of the public by the  moral and civic virtues of its members, the scandalous and unworthy  conduct of even a few of them is  apt to bring reproach on the whole  body, and to excite the distrust of  tho community."

The emperor of China has not always been the conservative individual we are inclined to think him,  ���lorthe royal personage who bore  that title in the year 17 IS went so  far as to consider the feasibility of  allying himself matrimonially with  .some reigning house in Europe, and  witli that end in view wrote a letter to the pope requesting his good  influence in .securing the necessary  princess. This letter was translated from the Chinese by the secre-  of the Indias of the Company of  Jesus, residing in.the city of Home  in 17'18, and sent to his holiness,  Pius Benedict XIV. An account of  this correspondence is to be found  in ah old boolc, "Lalhistracion Mox-  icana," published in the City of  Mexico in I8s5l. ' The curious document follows:  "To the blessed, above all blessed,  Pontificate of all the Pontificates  aud Christian Pastors, Dispenser of  the Annointing Oils of the Kings of  Murope, Benedicto XIV.:  "The most powerful of all the  most powerful ou earth ; the highest  above all the highest beneath the  -moot), who is seated in the emerald  chair of China, on one hundred  golden footstools, to interpret the  words of God to the descendants of  Abraham, and who gives life to one  hundred and fifteen kingdoms and  one hundred and sixteen islands;  writes with a quill from a virgin  ostrich, and sends' health and long  life.  f'The_time having arrived when  the Howe r of bur royal youth should  mature the fruits of o'ir old age for  the consolation ��� of our devoted  people, and disseminate the seeds  which produce the plant necessary  for tlieir protection, avo have resolved to unite ourselves with one  young and lofty, nourished at the  breast of the strong lioness and of  the gentleewe.  "For this reason, having always  imagined your European llomau  country as the source of unconquerable women and offspring, we extend our powerful hand to ally ourselves with one of them, who must  be a niece of your own or of some  other great Latin priest, who looks  upon God with pious affection, and  preserves in herself tho authority  of Sarah, the friiitf illness of Rachel,  the faithfulness of Esther and the  wisdom of Sheba'  "We- desire_^that_she.may havgy  "tlfeleyes"of_tlie���dove7"tliat see the-  heavens   and   earth;   a mouth  of  scarlet, like blood, which feeds upon  dew or  holy   thoughts.   Her   age  must nob have passed two hundred  courses ef the.moon (a little more  than 36 years).   Her: stature must  be like the dry grain.  We will send  ;her raiment with   our   mandarin,  |j ambassadors who will conduct her  to our empire, and we  will go out  to receive her at the .banks of the  Great River, admitting her to our  royal coach.  "Living with us, she may adore  her own God, with twenty-four female slaves at her disposition, and  with them she will sing like.the  turtle dove in springtime.  "Our father and friend, iu agreeing to the consummation of our  wishes thou wilt be the means of  uniting the perpetual friendship of  thy principality and authority with  this dominant empire, and we shall  embrace thy laws, as the ivy the  tree trunk, and we will diffuse'.our  royal blood in our states; warming  the blood of our princes with the  fire of our amazons; our subject  niandarins will carry with themv  pictures of some of these princes. u  "We beseech thee to preserve in  peace tiie two good and religious  : families of the negro missionaries,  sons of Ignatius, and the black and  white sons of'Dotniugo; the advice  of the one and the other serves us  as guides in our government, and  as a light to interpret the laws, as  the splendor of the oil makes the  sea clear.  "With this, rising from our  throne to embrace thee, we say to  thee that this our letter goes sealed  with the seal.of our empire, in the  eity, head of the world, oh the fifth  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  day of the second lunation of the  fourth year of our reign."  "Tho seal is a sun," so the book  reads, "surrounded by rays and  swords." The annotations are as  follows : "The grandfather of the  present emperor wrote ti similar  letter to the king of France, Louis  XIII., and they named a princess,of  the blood, and a Venetian lady of  the house of Cantarini; but neither  consented to the journey,,: because  ���the emperor of that time ���������was* old  and sick. '  Oriental Knavery.  The notion of using Routgen  rays as an aid to the discovery of  stolen property supposed to be concealed in the body of the thief was  put into practice in a Calcutta jail  recently, but with small success.  The subject of the experiment was  a man accused of having stolen and  swallowed a diamond worth 10,000  rupees in a Calcutta jeweler's shop.  The investigation disclosed that  he had something in his throat���  the Rontgen rays did not say what  ���and the local doctors are considering the question of extracting it,  the jeweler meanwhile anxiously  awaiting the result.  lt seems that in some of the  thieves'schools in India a regular  course of training i.s gone through  in the art of "pouching" or concealing articles of value in the  throat.  The Englishman, a newspaper  published in Calcutta, thus describes the process:  "At first a small piece of lead attached to a thread is swallowed and  guided by the action of the tongue  to the orifice of the sac in the  throat. As soon as this has been  thoroughly learned the lead is coated with lime. This cuts into the  sac and enlarges it. The size of the  article to be 'pouched' is gradually  increased until it is said that many  of the Indian thieves can 'pouch'  eight or ten rupees at once."  The diamond swallowing case was  before the court and was adjourned  for a further medical examination.  The prosecution produced an old  convict who, in the presence of the  court, swallowed and produced dice  the size of the missing diamond.  Interesting.

He had bought the  ticket eleven - years. ago, and as it  was unlimited as to time he claimed  the right to use the ticket on hi.s  return trip. The railroad officials,  on the other hand, argued that as  it was a half-rate .ticket good, for a  child under twelve years of age, he,  a man .of. ,twenty-one, could not  ride oii ifc. The contract on the  back of the ticket did not specify  that the child was to stop growing,  however, and now the question-is:  Can the young, man compel, the  railroad to carry him on that  ticket?

MacNEILL  of Rossland  Candidate of ihe Liberal-Conservative Party for Member  of the House of Commons for Yale-Cariboo.  PLATFORM  Adopted by the Liberal-Conservative Party in Convention  at Revelstoke, September 15th, 1900  We, the delegates of the Liberal-Conservative party of Yale-Cariboo  constituency,  in  convention  assembled,  reaffirm  the  principles of the  "party, and more particularly that cardinal principle, protection to home  industries, and that that principle  be carried ont so that all sections of  ���the country shall equally,share its benefits.  The one industry on which the prosperity of this constituency is  almost wholly dependent is mining; and we believe that our mining industries are as fairly entitled to protection as the manufacturing industries of Eastern Canada ; therefore, we advocate that the duties on lead  and lead products be increased, so that they shall be as high as those now  imposed by the United States on the same articles.  That the output of the precious metal mines is largely increasing  therefore we favor the establishment of a mint, so that the specie in.circulation shall be that of our own instead of that of a foreign country.  We advocate the restriction of the immigration of Chinese and Japanese, and all classes who cannot become good citizens of the Dominion  of Canada, and suggest the adoption of the principles of the Natal Act.  British Columbia has not now the representation in the federal parliament that she is entitled to: therefore we advocate that when the  redistribution of seats is made that this constituency shall be given representation according to its population.  , That it augurs well for the success of the party that Hugh John  Macdonald has decided to leave the field of provincial politics to take  part in the larger one that affects the people of the whole of Canada.  CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE ROOMS IN NELSON  Houston Block, Corner of Baker and Josephine Streets.  m  TO  Contractors and  Builders |  Having disposed of our business to Mr. Ernest Mansfield, we OT  bespeak for him a continuance of that liberal share of patronage ($1  which has been extended us during our career in Nelson. We ean (Jf^  only say that those traits which have built up for us and maintained fan  our reputation for reliable dealings will be continued throughout fik  by the new firm. We therefore take great pleasure in recommend- W  ing him to all our old customers, and also to any new ones who OT  may honor him with their patronage. OT  GITY LOCAL NEWS  An unusually handsome specimen  of oro from the G'ranilo mine is on  exhibition in J. Dover's window.  It is pure white .quart'/ studded  with large nuggets.  Rev. S. Rhodes will lecture tonight on "Belief in the Supernatural", in the Baptist mission room,  Home Addition. The lecture will  follow after a short service.  The special committee appointed  to construct the cottage addition  for the General vHospital have  chosen a site for the building.. The  spot selected is about 75 feet due  east of the main building and liiO  feet from the street. Work is to  be commenced as soon as the plans  are completed.  Monseigneur Falconia, apostolic  delegate to Canada, is now in Vancouver and an effort will probably  be made to have him visit the Kootenays before returning east. He  is the head of the Roman Catholic  church iu the Dominiou, and a visit  to Nelson would excite general interest.  Additional interest has been added to the Independent Labor  party's rally tonight by the announcement that candidate Foley  will be present aud deliver an address. He is coming in to confer  with Jim AVilks and the other leading labor men here and has beeu  induced to speak at the rally.  The sheriff has seized the interest of the Two Friends Mine Limited in the property known as the  Two Friends, located on the divide  between Lemon .and Springer  creeks, also the company's interest  in sixty tons of ore at the mine to  satisfy a writ issued by the Bank  of Montreal for $2089 and interest  from September 20th. The Two  Friends is a well known Slocan  property and has been shipping  for some time.  Thanking you for past favors,  The West Kootenay Brick & Lime Co., Ltd.  T.  G.

The Spokane Falls <fe Northern  road has a crew of men at work  making improvements to the track  at Seven Devils with a view to preventing the delays and disorganization caused annually in the  spring through mudslides. The  locality is well known to most Nelson people, bnt it may be stated  that Seven Devils is the name applied to a series of clay points coming down to the Columbia river.between Bossburg and Marcus in  Washington. The Spokane Falls &  Northern track runs along the foot  of these points, which are all included iu the space of a mile or so.  Every spring the passing of the  frost=is=marked=by==heav-y-=iuud-  slides. The right-of-way is invaded by a semi-liquid mass of  clay, which runs in as fast as it can  be removed by shovellers. Last  spring the trains from Spokane  were more often from two to ten  hours late than on time, and one or  two trains were cancelled altogether. The company proposes to  overcome the difficulty by cutting  down the great clay wall on the  upper side of the track for 100 feet  back. A hydraulic plant has been  placed on the ground and is hard  at work washing down the bank.  The water is brought to the desired  spot in a twelve-inch pipe and discharged through a one-inch nozzle,  thus obtaining a pressure of 100  pounds. The work will bo continued for several weeks.  Almost Beady.  The new engine house at the C.  P. 11. depot will be ready for occupation two weeks hence. The riveters rigged up a furnace at the  building yesterday and commenced  work riveting the deck of the turn  table, while a large force is engaged  on the exterior.' The construction  gang will commence within a few  few days to lay the new repair  tracks north of those now used for  "bad order" ears. When this is finished the old repair tracks will be  torn out aud the sidings projected  under the, plan for rearranging the  yards will be started. In a couple  of weeks, therefore, comparatively  little will be left of the present  yard. The new tracks will be considerably above the present level,  having been designed to come well  over the  average high-water mark.  ���W  The Change in Time.  The new time card on the C. l\  II. is running smoothly now, the  main line trains having made* up  the time lost through t.he change.  The alteration affects the local division but slightly as far as the  arrangement of train numbers and  crews are concerned. The numbers  are as follows: No. 41 due to leave  Nelson at S o'clock, No. 43 due to  leave at 9 o'clock, No. 45 leaving at  18:40 o'clock, No. 42 arriving at*  11:35, No. 44 arriving at 14:40 and  No. 40 arriving at 22:10.  DREW ANOTHER GOOD HOUSE  Second Production  of Mikado.  "The Mikado" drew another  crowded house last night. The attendance was even larger than on  the first night and equally appreciative. Beautiful boquets were  showered on the principals aud the  applause was even more enthusiastic if a superlative is possible. In  several respects the production was  an improvement on tho previous  performance. The'caat Avas thoroughly at home ou . the stage and  there was noiie of the stiffness incidental to a first night. ' The soloists were in splendid voice and  gave to their selections all the taste  and skill born of carefuL training  supplemented by confidence in  themselves. vTho orchestra's work  wras excellent from start to finish.  Tonight "The Mikado" will be  presented iri; Nelson for the last  time, and another bumper house  will doubtless be accorded it. The  society merits all the citizens can  do for it in the way of patronage.  Tiie ainouht/.bf practice required to  bring an opera of the "Mikado"  class to" fchejaitch of perfection attained by tiie Nelson amateurs can  be appreciated by none outside of  the participants, and much is accomplished in the interest of music  locally.        ';'  Tomorrow! morning the entire  company, including management,  principals, chorus and orchestra,  leaves for Rossland, Avhere "The  Mikado" willbe produced for two  nights. A number of citizens will  take advantage'of the Thanksgiving rates and accompany the  society. -'     MINING   STOCK  QUOTATIONS.  jB-y-IEDRiS   &o   OCX  *N"E331iSO"ISr  KASLO  s-A.3sriDO"*Nr  STOVES!
