 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH TEAK.  NELSON:  THURSDAY MORNING OCTOBER 11 1900  PRICE FIVE CEOTS  ���^  LIBERALS SHOW A  &  FRONT  Candidate Galliher Has  No Intention of Withdrawing  in Favor of Candidate Foley.  ALL THREE PARTIES ARE NOW FIGHTING FOR BLOOD  Candidate Galliher is somewhat  annoyed at the misleading statements regarding his candidacy and  i lie attitude of his party toward  him that have appeared in the  Miner; but he should be aware, by  this time, that that newspaper is so  unreliable on all questions not directly affecting the little'crowd  that use it as tlieir mouthpiece  that the general public pay no attention to its .utterances. It pretends to be ultra-Conservative, but  the Conservative candidate cares  nothing for its support, and the  rank and file of the party in Nelson  have long since repudiated it.  Speaking in a general -way of his  prospects, candidate Galliher said  yesterday, that his party were  united and in excellent fettle for a  .short and decisive campaign, and  that encouraging reports were be  ing received from all parts of the  constituency. P. .T. Deane of Kamloops, who was in Nelson yesterday,  and who has left for Kossland,  brought encouraging reports from  Kamloops. He is a staunch supporter of the Liberal party candidate, and not a subtle enemy, as  the Miner would have it"appear.  The head push of the party held  a meeting last night, and devised  ways and means to thoroughly canvass Nelson riding. They claim  they can carry Creston, Ymir, the  Duncan mines and Nelson.  The Conservatives are also hard  at work, and the sporting members  of the party claim that Nelson will  give MacNeill a majority. The  Labor party people are sawing  wood and looking wise. There are  just twenty-three more days in  which work can be done, as all  three candidates are Sunday obser-  vauce men, and will ..not ask their  adherents to work on Sundays. '  running smoothly the property will  be added to the list of largo producers. The output is not definitely fixed, but will be well up to  the total capacity of the mill. A  large reserve of ore is on the dump,  and tho crew in the mine is to be  substantially increased. Mr. Yaw-  key leaves this morning on a business trip to Spokane.  BOARD OF Ti. ".DE MEETING  FIRST SESSION .THAT HAS BEEN  HELD IN  MANY MONTHS.  NELSON MINES AND MINING  Will Ship to Nelson Smelter.  The American Roy group will be  . added to the list of Slocan shippers  this   wiuter.      The   property   has  shipped more or less regularly for  , some time but the work carried on  was   exclusively development and  the shipments were of ore taken  out in the course of drifting.   The  mine is  now ou an excellent basis,  and the management has concluded'  : to ship regularly.    Negotiations are  \iiudef-'way to*T6"r\vafd.thfeir output  '*"~?o the Nelson smelter. The crew at  the limine will be increased to 75  this winter and as the shipping ore  is higli grade' the group promises to  become one of the -best, properties  in the Slocan. Tho American Boy  is just under the Last Chance and  the latter company has leased the  two upper levels of the American  Boy to take out ore. The American  Boy has made connection with the  Last Chance tramway and is now  Jn a position to bring its outfit to  the railroad at a low figure instead  of having to depend on pack animals or rawhidiug as has been the  case up to the present. L. Pratt,  secretary of the company, left today for Sandon, where tho business  office of the company will be located  an future.  Work Suspended.  John Mean, one of the best  known prospectors operating out of  this city, returned yesterday from  East Kootenay, where he has spent  the summer on a couple of claims  which are showing up well. The  claims are located between Port  Steele and Windermere on Skoo-  kumchuck creek, a tributary of the  Kootenay river. The section has  been prospected superficially, and a  number < of locations staked, but  comparatively little work, has been  done, Mr. Mean's claims being further advanced than any of the  others. If the spur line to Windermere along the east bank of the  Kootenay ever goes through, as is  confidently predicted, the value of  claims in this section will be materially enhanced. Mean has two properties, the Iron Mask and the  Rossland, the latter being so named  because of the resemblance between its surface showings and  those characteristic of the Rossland  camp. The ore is a pyrite or  magnetie.iron, and assays from surface specimens give returns of $5 in.,  gold and two per cent copper. The  lead is four feet wide. It has been  traced by three open cuts ten feet  in depth, but no assays' have been  made below the surface. The Iron  Mask has a thirty-foot tunnel, and  a depth of twenty feet. The lead  ia four feet wide and carries copper  pyrites assaying $2 in gold and  eight per cent copper. Work has  been suspended in the section for  the winter.      _  Uranium Found.  A remarkable discovery in the  pre from tbe Venus mine was announced  yesterday when  it  was  stated that uranium, a.rare metal,  had been found to exist in paying  quantities. Uranium is an element  of the chromium group and is reduced as a heavy, hard nickel-white  metal which is quite permanent.  Its yellow oxide is used to impart  to glass a delicate greenish-yellow  tint, which is accompanied by a  strong florescence, and the market  value is $0 per pound. A well-  known Toronto analyst reports that  the percentage of uranium is .31,  and experiments are now being  made to determine if the rare metal  can . be * saved. In this event .the  Venus property will assume an entirely new complexion.  Work to Begin on the Juno.  M. S. Logan, managing director  of the Juno Mining Comprny, was  in the city yesterday and spent the  clay on the hill with Charles Parker, the company's engineer. A  point was selected forty feet above  the Venus line, from which the big  900-foot tunnel will be started.  This will give the property tho  maximum depth obtainable' by  drifting with room on the group  below the tunnel for a dump. The  first shot will be fired on Monday  when the permanent camp will be  completed and everything ready to  proceed with work uninterruptedly.  The strong feature of the Juno is  that no dead work is required. The  Juno vein runs at right angles to  the   tunnel   projected   and   inter  sects the Venus lead on which  the drift will be run. By drifting  on this lead the company commences to take out pay ore with  the first shot, a desirable condition  of affairs which is only encountered  occasionally. The estimate is that  the drift will tap the Juno lead 900  feet in and at a depth of 300 feet,  and crosscuts can then be run east  and west on the big ledge. The  company-will employ nine men on  the start and this staff will be increased if it is deceded to work  threo shifts. 'The management is  greatly interested in tho discovery  of uranium on the Venus group, as  any mineral found on the Venus is  naturally present on the continuation of tho Venus lead on Juno  property.   Will Commence Crushing Ore.  The forthcoming week will inaugurate a new era in the history  of the Minnesota Silver Mines, Limited, wliich is operating the Ivanhoe mine at Sandon. The company  has a first-class high grade galena  property, a large sum has been expended in development, and within  the next week their new 100-ton  concentrator will commence crushing ore. The property is in shape  to ship regularly and on a large-  scale, thus making it one of the Slo-  can's best propositions. The mill  was designed by the best people in  the mill-building business and is  ready to commence operations. The  tramway from the mine to the mill  was built by Riblet of Nelson, and  is almost ready to carry ore. W.  II. Yawkey of Detroit, president of  the compauy, was at the Hotel  Phair yesterday, and states that  the concentrator will be started  hext week.     When the plant   is  The marquis de Dusmet and viscount de Grammont will return to  the Chapleau mine on Saturday.  The tramway to the mill is almost  completed, over half of the cable  being strung. The plant is being*  set up and should be ready to commence crushing by November. 1st.  The visiting directors are well  pleased with the outlook at the  property.   MINING   STOCK  QUOTATIONS.

Would     Not   Surrender,   but - Were  Riddled With Bullets by a Large  Force of Boers.  London, October 11.���A special  dispatch from Lydenberg says: "A  Boer prisoner tells the story of the  way in whicli a patrol of five troopers of Strathcona's Horse under  sergeant Brothers met death. It  "appears^tlwt^they^-wcw^sucrdgnly"  surrounded by a strong force of  Boers. The Canadians indignantly  refused to surrender and a murderous fire was discharged at short  range until every man in the party  was riddled with bullets, but not  before each Canadian had accounted for three Boers.  Sir Redvers Buller while passing  through Machadodorp and bidding  farewell to the troops said he should  be greatly pleased to tell Lord  Strathcona of the magnificent work  of his troopers."  English Elections.  London, October 11.-3:30 a. m.���  The Liberals havo been doing far  better in the counties in the parliamentary general election than they  did in the boroughs. Yesterday  they gained two more seats, Cardiff  and the Otley division of Yorkshire, thus equalizing the party  gains.  The Ministerialists aud the Opposition have now gained 27 seats  each. Apart from sir Henrjr Campbell Bannermau's reduced majority  in Stirling borough, ancl the success  of sir Edward J. Reed at Cardiff, a  seat formerly held by Mr. James M.  MacLean, prominent in Indian affairs, who did hot seek re-election,  there is little of special interest in  yesterday's returns. The Ministerialists now hold 257 seats aiid the  Opposition 205. Sir Henry Campbell Bannermau, While addressing  his, supporters after the poll had  been declared, said he was satisfied  with the result, considering the  state of the register and the "most  disadvantageous circumstances for  an election that an ingenious government could devise."  The Nelson board of trade held a  session last night, the first in several months. A number of matters  were gone into, soiae of which were  laid over to the ribxt "session, when'  their discussion promises to be of  an animated nature.'  Chairman Holt reported having  interviewed president Shaughnessy  of the C. P. R. with regard to the  completion of the Lardo railroad.  The reply was that the road would  be proceeded .with in the near future," but Mr. Shaughnessy declined  to define what "the near future"  was. He intimated, however, that  the C. P. R. had too much money  invested in grade x\\6w to allow it  to be idle. ���    ;       ;"  A question was asked as to  whether the K. & S. road, .which  had been subsidized, had been  started. - The > reply was in the  negative and a,'suggestion was  made" that the Dominion government be* ihemoralized to'stir up the.  subsidized road. It* was finally resolved that the Kaslo board of trade  be requested to ,co":operate with .the  Nelson board in", urging both' the  railroads" projecting branches in  the Lardo' to commence the work.  A hearty vote"\of thaiiKS was  passed to W. H, Dowsing for his  efforts iu connection with the successful exhibit of Nelson district  minerals at the Spokane fair. Many  pleasant references were made to  Mr. Dowsing's services.  President Holt informed the board  that the'Kootenay Lake Telephone^  Company had replied to a communication from ..the*, couricil'of the board,  stating "that "the company would;  build a line into*'- the Slocan when  they thought there was any business in sight.   He suggested that  as the K. L. T. Co., took this view,  of the matter, the board   should  place the  proposition   before   the  rival company.   The matter of telephone connection with the Slocan  was one of   great  importance to  Nelson".    Tts   establishment   would  very materially increase the business of Nolson wholesalers.  G. E. Martin, manager of the  Kootenay Supply Company,-, heartily coincided with this view, remarking that only on the previous  day a Silverton merchant told him  that he ordered goeds---daily from  Sandon which he would buy in Nelson if there were-telephone connec-.  tion.   He was assured there were.  mines, in Rossland, Nelson and Slocan camps, had waited on Mr. Dunsmuir and from the questions he  asked it was evident the premier  did not know how the tax operated  in this district. One of his questions had been as to whether or not  the tax was on net profits.  11. E. Croasdaile suggested a resolution which would point out that  for the past two years every act of  legislation passed had tended to  discourage rather" than foster the  raining industry. The suggestion  was not acted upon.  Captain Duncan gave notice that  he would introduce a motion calling the attention of the government  to the anomalies existing in the aet  relating to the collection of timber  dues.  The members present at the meeting were: G. V. Holt, president; P.  W. Swannell, secretary; II. E. Groas-  daile, G. E. Martin, P. Lamont, J.  M. Lay, captain Duncan, A. R. Sherwood, T. C. Crofts, J. R. Rowley, T.  Morley, O. Newliug, J. Roderick  Robertson.  DUPLICITY OF BUSSE EIPOSEM  War Correspondents  Tell of Her Intrigues After  Siege  of Pekin. ��  the  FEARS ENTERTAINED OF AN UPRISING IN SOUTH CHINA,  _\'&\  An All-Water Route.  Cleveland, Ohio, October 10.���  The Carnegie Steel Company.has  taken the first step toward the  building up of an all-water transportation of export steel from Lake  Erie points to Europe, in chartering four vessels to load with steel  at Conneaut, Ohio, and steam  through via the Welland canal and  the St. Lawrence to Liverpool.  Their capacity is about 2500 tons  each in 18 feet of water. It is the  intention to load each vessel with  1000-tqns of steelat Conneaut and^  fill out at Montreal with -1500 tons"  of wood pulp. Going through the  Welland canal the vessels will draw  only -12 feet of water, though 14  feet draft is possible,  The New Yacht.  London,' October-10.���Ifc is reported that the challenging yacht  will be built on the Thames and  that she will be named -Shamrock.'  Aceordiugto rumor, Robert Wringe,  one of the commanders of the old  Shamrock, will command the new  racer.        -....-.   .   .    -'-        ��� ,  NO WORK UNTIL STRIKE ENDS  many silriilar cases.   ~  The board resolved to send a circular letter to the leading miners  and business men of the Slocan  with a view to ascertaining what  amount of business could be secured for a telephone line. The information thus secured is to be laid  before the Kootenay Lake Telephone company for the purpose of  inducing them to build the suggested line.  The members wore unanimous in  agreeing that a telephone line  would be of considerable commercial importance to Nelson and every  means will be taken to induce the  telephone company to proceed with  the work.  A. J. Kerr was proposed for membership in the board by F. W.  Swannell, and on motion of J. Roderick Robertson Mi\ Kerr's election  was by acclamation.  A. E. Croasdaile gave notice that  at the next meeting of the board  he would move that in future no  motions of the board or council  could be rescinded or altered without each member receiving due notice of the rescinding motion.  G. E. Martin gave notice that he  Would bring up the matter of the  2 per cent tax on the output of  mines. The mine owners, he said,  had been discussing the matter, and  he thought it was proper for the  business community to assist them.  President Holt expressed the  opinion that to tax the net smelter  returns was opposed to good policy,  as the mining expenses were thus  levied upon.  J. Roderick Robertson remarked  that the government did not seem  to know how the act was working.  A private deputation, including  representatives   of   the   principal  COLLIERIES  NITELY--  SUSPEND     INDEFI-  WORKS GUARDED.  A Clash Occurs Near Hazelton and a  Striker is Killed���A Policeman  Is Also Injured.  .

Not one colliery is now in full  operation in the Hazelton district5  Cox Brothers & Company have  guards stationed at every approach  to the Oneida and Deringer collieries tonight. All the officials of the  company are on the ground, and a  special train with steam up is waiting to carry them anywhere along  the line of tho Delaware, Susquehanna & Schuylkill railway.  Strikers and Officers Clash.  Hazelton, Pennsylvania, October  10.���A gunshot killed Mills, a striker, and a small shot struck policeman Kelncr Leskc. The striker was  struck by a ball from a revolver  with which all the officers were  armed. After the shooting the  strikers dispersed.. Sheriff Toole of  Schuylkill county, in whose territory the clash occurred, was in  Philadelphia and could render no  assistance. His chief deputy, .Tames  O'Donnell, arrjved here this afternoon and went to the scene with a  force of men. Rev. Carl Houser,  a Lutheran minister from Freehold,  who baptized a child at Oneida just  at the time of the shooting, was  mistaken by the strikers for superintendent Kudlick and narrowly  escaped being stoned. He was soon  recognized by a friend and escorted  safely to the station.  Premier to Resigu.  Perth, West Australia, October  10.���The premier, the right Hon.  Sir John Forrest, in introducing the  budget today asked to be relieved  of the premiership early in 1901.  He says Freemantle will be the San  Francisco of Australia.  Victoria, October 10.���Japanese  papers   received   by   the   steamer  Olympia have many stories of and  suggesting   instances   of    Russian  complicity with  China.   One correspondent   says   that   when   the  allied forces entered Pekin the Russian minister alone possessed information  as to the whereabouts' of  prince Ching, and he dispatched a  secret letter to the prince, setting  forth that China might count on  the support of the Russian government to extricate her from her difficulties; that at the proper moment  the  withdrawal of foreigu  troops  from Pekin  will  be proposed; that  France and Germany would assuredly accede to the proposal, and  that Great Britain, Japan and the  United States would be reluctantly  compelled to follow their. example.'.  Meanwhile the.Russian  minister in  Pekin was speaking  of increasing  his country's forces in the capital  and displaying a warlike and un-;  compromising front.  By and by���he-communicated to  his colleagues the information that,  prince Ching was in Hwai Lai, and  suggested that he be given safe  passage if he came to negotiate for  peace.- As soon as Ching,was safely:  in Pekin and in full communication'  with Li Hung. Chang, Russia suddenly put forward- her evacuation  ���proposal. He says Russia, despite  her declaration' that the territory  occupied by her in Manchuria  would be evacuated as soon as order  was restored,'-actively -carried-on  ,the work of conquest. . "  - ^Advices received by the Olympia  include tho confession of the murderer of baron." von Ketteler, who?  was arrested by Japanese gendarmes while endeavoring to sell the  .minister's watch. His story was  that prince Ching, who lately has  been appointed to the board of war,  issued orders that all foreigners  should be killed. Subsequently as  Wan and a party of Boxers were  going round the country, they met  baron von Ketteler and his people.  Wan states that the first shot eamo  from the side of the foreigners 'and  that fire was then opened on ba ron  von Ketteler, who fell by a bullet  fired by Wan himself.  The wai correspondents say that  the story of the British having  been  the   first   to   enter   Pekin is  false.    The Russians were before? r?|  them, but the British were first- at ??[  the legations.   The town of'Tung.?'j  Chow, says the correspondents.-haslf  been damaged more than^Tien-Tsin^  or Pekin.

A pleasant social functiou took  place, at St.. Paul's Presbyterian  church last night, when the officers  and members of the church held a  reception in honor of their pastor,  Rev. Robert Frew, who returned  last week from an extended tour in  Europe. The congregation turned  oufc in force and a delightful evening was spent. In opening Dr.  Arthur read an address on behalf  of the members, setting forth their  pleasure at having Mr. Frew with  them again, and the deep gratification it afforded all to note the signs  of renewed health and vigor. Mr.  Frew responded in felicitious terms,  expressing his keen satisfaction at  being in the harness again and fche  hope that his long vacation had not  overtaxed the patience of his Nelson friends and parishioners. His  remarks were neatly turned and  elicited hearty applause.  The balance of the evening was  spent in social exercises. The ladies  of the church had prepared an inviting collation, which was served  in the schoolroom. . The apartment  was handsomely decorated and a  lively staff of waiters ministered to  the wants of the gathering. A  musical program was contributed  by Mrs. Murray and* Messrs. Mc-  Adam, Kydd, Grizelle," Murray  Chadbourn.  and  Trade of the Antipodes.

He suggestsr*  that   Canadian   dealers   send, out  agonts while this uncertainty, ex-S  ists in order to place Canadian goods ���  before tho wholesalers, who so far-  carry no' lines of Canadian  goods.41  Ho also suggests the establishment  of Canadian export agencies in  the,;  antipodes in order to deal directly?  with commission merchants.   These  are constantly inquiring for Cana-5  dian exports., .. ; .- ������;'3  Cabinet Rumors.  London, October 11.���Baron Cro-'  mor, British diplomatic agent and.  consul-general in Egypt, has been  summoned to England according to  the Cairo correspondent of the  Daily Express. It is understood iu  Cairo that he will-not return to  Egypt, and it is believed that he  will become a member of the new  cabinet. The Daily Express suggests that it is possible that lord  Cromer will replace the marquis of  Lansdowne, secretary of state for  war, and says 'that "a combination  of Cromer, Kitchener and Roberta  would ensure public confidence in a  thorough reform of ..the,war office."

II )W THE DOCTOR COT THERE  A Rough Trip.  The other clay a country physi-  v'mn received a call to j?o -from his  place into a lumber camp in the  J'.ir Rrassau region and it was such  a call as a doctor cannot well refuse; .su'ys the Lewiston, (Me.) .Tonr-  ^nal. So he went to West Cove on  Moosehend with a big coat nnd  ���wearing leggings and shoe packs*-, as  (lif low moccasins are called.  A lumberman was there, and this  man had made arrangements to  'carry the doctor up as far as West  "Outlet on a hand-car on the Canadian Pacific road.. They had to  stop once and unload the hand-car  on to their backs in a gully so that  a freight train could go past.  Above West Outlet a certain portion of the lake surface was free of  snow, and the doctor and the woodman guide strapped on tlieir skates  and started.- There were numerous-  '���wrinkles," huge bulging rifts in  the ice where the moving of the  mighty surface had met ancl made  ruin. When they came to one of  these wrinkles ^the woodman-'-went*  aliead-and prodded-and poked until"  ho found a place where they could"  cross.  It is possible that more men-have-  been drowned"in tho waters of' the"  Moosehend by carelessness-in cross-  I   ing wrinkles   than   by any other  cause.  By the   time   they got   to  the  mouth of Moose river the. doctor  was obliged-' to own to-his" .sturdy-  companion" that he was fair tuck-'  ered.   .Tiie. man Jind a_ mposo sled  lihere^h'tliVblishes. . He had left it  there when  he came out after the  doctor.    He piled the'medicine-man-  on with his case, wrapped-him in.  blankets and  sot away along the  (oto road...Theie'was no team-out,  Tor there was much uncertainty as  to when  the doctor would  be able  to got along,.  When'he could he walked. " Tiie'  rost? of-the time he rode. Tho tough  little-man.of >the-woods- seemed in  no wise wearied. He told- the-doc-  'tor. .that it was easy enough to  make those kind of trips when one.  was toughened to it.  Iu the camp was one of the bosse3  who had been caught in a snub line  and who had had most of the flesh  on the calf of his leg rasped oif by  the cruel cable.  TlieTdoctor did what,- he could for  ^the=sufferei��^Refore=ho=finished-a=  messenger came from a camp ten  miles' above. -They had learned  that a physician was in the section,  and they Avail ted him. Teh men  were down with the grip and colds  and two had pneumonia. So the  doctor went up to that camp.  There was.nothing.else to do. He  says that 'if he had refused he  ,guesses 'tliey would have loaded  him on a sled willy-nilly and would  have taken him along. He came  out after six days in the woods.  Strike at Seattle.'

Kind Queen Margherita.  An   American    woman    abrond  aiys:  "Queen Margherita is, in the parlance of her Alpine subjects, 'our  kind queen,' with a strong emphasis on the adjective. She charms  every one with whom she comes in  contact. A little housemaid in t-he-  mountain hostelry of Casa Yanzo,  where, the queen stopped on two of  her excursions from flressoney,  "said: 'The queen patted my cheek.  Just think how friendly is our kind  queen! She is far more affable  than even her lady in waiting.'  "The 'kind queen'- heard of a peasant girl who had met with au acci-"  dent and broken her leg. Forthwith her majesty dispatched a messenger with inquiries and a present-  ancl a promise of a carriage -to convey the doctor and' patient to the  nearest hospital, which was - a  whole day's drive from where the  accident happened.  In one of her long walks queen  Margherita passed the charred remnants of the hamlet of San Antonio.-  She made instant inquiries as-.to-  the   condition   of   the' burned-out  families," and the result" was that  each family   received  a $20 noter  from the queen���a veritable fortune''  in a poor valley, and being wholly  unexpected a welcome fortune, too.  To a-foreigner who had been  help-  fnl-to some Italian peasants whose  industry is as. great as their poverty", the queen'devised an enchanting surprise, making the stranger.,  the channel of tho royal'"bounty to  a number -of- Pied mon tese-toilers;  These are random  but typical instances of the queen's-tactful kind-:  ncsses."���Philadelphia Record.

"Various plans were meditated, "particularly "his proposed  marriage to one of the- daughters  of Joseph Bonaparte, who was then  living in Bordentown, N. J��� and  who was even solicited to- place  himself actively at the head of the  Bonaparte interest in France,after  the death of Napoleon at St. Helena-.  But 'Bo,' the pet name she gave  heu=son>=wasJittlejucline(Lto=helpj  along these matrimonial speculations. Her special desire was that  lie would not fall in love with--ah'  American, and that he would-al-'  ways bear, in mind the possibility"  tliat the French people might call a  Bonaparte like him to the throne.  "But all madarab Bonaparte's-  daring hopes for her- son were;  dopmed'to disappointment; In 1819;  while, she was in Europe, she  learned that he had married: an  estimable young woman in Balti-:  more. While the second Jerome  ���Bonaparte, who was a graduate, of  Harvard college, was never naturalized as an American citizen, he became a highly respected** gentleman-  both an this country and- abroad.  It was frequently observed in Europe that he resembled his uncle,  the great emperor, more than-' Napoleon's own brothers or any others  of his kinsmen. Indeed,, his figure,  the cast of his head, the regularity  of his features and his eyes were so  much like the emperor's that there  was some fear in France during.tlie  Louis Philippe monarchy that-the  resemblance might stir the Napoleonic affections of the people, and he  was forbidden to visit Paris even  while traveling incognito."

A stay of-proceedings has been  secured in the matter of Regina vs  Algiers, and an interesting point of  law has cropped up in connection  therewith.. The defendant Algiers  re-staked the Velvet group at Rossland, claiming that the original location had "lapsed because of the  owners neglecting necessary records. The .affidavit of location contains a clause setting for tli that the  locator does, not know of any dwelling house1 or building within the  curtilage of the claim, and the prosecution '^-secured Algiers' commitment bii the charge of perjury,  asserting that hi.s No. 1 post was  almost against the "ore-bin on the  Velvet. The defense now- brings  up the claim that the form of the  affidavit overrides the act.  "An Old Case.  Tho oldest case unsettled in the  records of the court of Kootenay  was set down for trial at the approaching assizes yesterday.

The  plaintiff asks possession of lot 4,  block' 1 in Sandon, an injunction  to restrain defendants from -tres-  passihg.---thereon and .damages to  the extent of. $180. The defence is  that plaintiff'is not. entitled to.  possession.
