MINING   STOOK  QUOTATIONS.  HE IS SATISFIED WITH NOME  W. B. AKERS RETURNS TO NELSON  AFTER A VISIT NORTH,  The case of Henley A's. Iteco Mining company, which was set  down  yesterday for  trial  ut  the assizes  will be one of the most  interesting  actions ever  tried   in this district.  The suit arises out of a poker game  in which .1. M. Harris, president  of  the ltoco, was fleeced to a finish by  I jew Jlouek,  ono  of the cleverest  card sharpers who ever came west.  The case is robbed of some interest  by the fact that llouck  is   dead.  Had he lived the sharper would undoubtedly have been  placed in the  wintess box. It is asserted he worked  tho "Montana sleeve" game at Sandon, and in  the approaching  trial  the defence will  produce  tlio  evidence of the ��� tailor who ��� made  the  . sleeve.     Houck's ability   to palm  cards is evidenced  by the fact that  Harris had no suspicion he was getting  the double cross  until  some  time later    when    he   learned   of  Houck's identity.   In the meantime  he settled his debt to the sharper  in, Beco shares.    Houck  sold- the  shares and the purchaser, is bringing the action to compel the  Reco  people to honor the transfer.  The story of the game at Sandon  i.s worth telling.   A Spokane business man had A'isited the Slocan  metropolis and   played  poker for  high stakes.     He lost, and J.  M.  Harris got the big end of the game.  AVhen   the   Spokane man arrived  homo   he   secured   a tip   on Lew  .v Houck, and put up a.deal with the  i^.C*inous4shafp''l;o secure" revenge "oif  . Harris.    They went to Sandon and  worked the job smoothly.    Harris,  lost $1000 in cash and several I. O.  U.'s at one   sitting, aud between  $2500   and   $3000   in cash and   a  bloeiy  of   Reco stock in   another.  Then the visitors pulled out, and  ���   when  Harris became informed of  _ the proposition he had gone against.  a notice was posted repudiating the  stock certificates.  Lew Houck was one  of  Lhe most  remarkable   gamblers   of    modern  times.    He did seven  years  in the  Ohio penitentiary  from 'S3  to '90,,  and  during  this  period   practiced  unfair  dealing daily until  ho  became a past master at the art.    It  was said of him that no man in the  world had his dexterity with��cards.  Prior to his  imprisonment he had  been  in Belgium,  Holland, North  Africa   and   South  America.      On  being  liberated  ho started on  his  remarkable career as a card sharp.  The   man   who   had    secured   his  conviction     was     a      Jew      and  for-this   reason   Houck   harbored  a deadly hatred against the Jewish  race and made   them   hi.s special  prey.    It was his   boast   that he  robbed  none but Jews  and those  who were able to lose.     He became  an accomplished  linguist, speaking  five'languages and in his trayels acquired the manners of a gentleman.  His good address obtained him entrance to the Fifth Avenue  club of  New York, where he proved an expensive member for his new friends.  On coming west he became-a member of the swell jockey club in the  City of Mexico and made a fortune.  From Mexico llouck went to South  Africa and became a member of the  Royal Club at Cape Town.   Thenco  he went to Johannesburg and was  speedily elected a member of tiie  fashionable Wanderer's Club.     His  success was phenomenal; but was  attended by no scandal.    Iu company .with several .South African  millionaires Houck went- to London  'aiicT' secured" membership ' in   the  Grosvenor Club where he is said to  have    met    andv  vanquished   the  prince of Wales.  Houck dropped dead at Durango,  Mexico, only a short time ago, and  some hitherto unpublished passages  in his career are likely to come out  during the Henley-Harris trial here  next week.

St. Louis, October- 9.���Requisition papers, issued by governor  Sayers, were served on; governor  Roosevelt here today for the extradition of John D. Rockefeller,  Henry M. Flagler and other Standard Oil men for alleged violation  of the anti-trust law of Texas.  Governor Roosevelt said he could  not act on the requisition as long  as he was out of New York state,  as he is technically not governor.  He said he would look into the case  when he returned to New York.  Just When Bodrook was Struck and  Wealth in Sight He was Held  , .- -   Up by U. S. Troops.  Wily B. Akers, well known *iu  Nelson through his connection with  the Athabasca mine, and later as  foreman of the Exchequer mine, returned to the eity last night after  spending the sumtfuir in Nome.   He  for most of the stuff shipped  in.  The result waa that goods fell to a  comparatively low price and finally  the big trading concerns bought up  the balance at a  ridiculously low  figure.    Then, too, a   tremendous  quantity of machinery,  estimated  to be worth over two millions, was  brought   in   and   dumped   ou  the  bench.    With   tho  exception  of a  very small percentage, all this machinery   has   lain   on   the   beach  throughout the entire winter.   The  iron and steel is deeply corroded  by the salt spray, boilers, engines;  etc., are-half buried in  wet sand  and tlio entire" lot i.s ruined beyond  possible repair, a  Ayaste of money  painful     to     contemplate.

The Gold Hills Exploration & Development Company of Torouto,  with British Columbia head .offices  at Jubilee Point, on Hawser lake, is  the most extensive corporation  joperatiug__lu^the__JIppeiv _Duiicai_i_  river country. They own twelve  groups aggregating between 70 and  80 claims and have done more or  less work on each of tho groups.  At the head offlce on Jubilee Point  the company has comfortable buildings, including a complete assay  outfit which is kept busy on specimens from the company's many  properties.  James M. Anderson, manager of  the Gold Hills Exploration <fc Development Company, was registered  at the Hotel Phair yesterday and  talks in an interesting vein of the  district where his syndicate is  operating. "The Upper Duncan  country will be a great district in  the near future," he says. "We  have magnificent timber, tho hills  being timbered to an altitude of  5000 feet, and the water power is  unsurpassed, there being quite forty  creeks running into the river. The  Lower Duncan, Hawser lake and  the Upper Duncan afford a great  central waterway which will render  . transportation charges low. The  lower river is navigable six months  in the year, the lake is always open  of course and the upper river is  navigable nine months out of every  twelve. None of the properties in  sight at present are over four miles  from the river and the majority of  them average two miles. Tramways can thus be run from the  mines to the water further reducing  transportation charges.   .  "The groups operated by our  compauy are the Chicona, Jubilee,  Merry England, Sutherland, Gertrude, Gopper Queen, Pudding  Bowl, Golden, Jessie, Glacier,  Whistler and Bear creek properties.  JSiuce  going  into   the  country  a  couple of years ago we have done  little beyond thoroughly prospecting the claims. No ore has been  shipped but we know exactly what  we have, and next* year expect to  open up several of the groups on a  large scale. Among the most promising properties are the ' Copper  Queen, on which Ave have uncovered several line ledges averaging $10.60 in gold, and the Chicora.

Along the great  limestone dyke which constitutes  the divide betwreeu the Lardo and  Duncan districts a number of galena propositions have been opened  up. As development proceeds the  galena plays out and gold rock is  encountered. This is the case on  our Gertrude group, which started  in galena and is now in free milling  ore carrying gold values of $15 to  $20. This formation is rare. Since  going in wo have built SO miles of  trails and are in good shape to proceed extensively next year.  A Promising Property.  Robert Shiell of Melbourne, in  the Kettle River country, was in the  city yesterday. He is working a  promising property of which more  will be heard a little later. Mr.  Shiell confirms the report of a strike  on claims near Wauehope owned by  George Doyle, formerly of Nelson,  and states that the Kettle River  country will have a number of first  class propositions when a sufficient'  time has elapsed to permit-of. some  development work.  The Northern Light.  A. 11. Graeey returned to the city  pesterday after spending a couple  of weeks at the Northern Light  group under bond to the Imperial  Development Syndicate. A small  crew has been at work on. the  property under his direction for  three weeks, a portion of which  was spent in cleaning up the camp  and plant. For two weeks the  crew has been drifting on the lead  from   the   bottom of   the 56-foot  MORE ROOM FOR THE SICK  AN ADDITION TO THE GENERAL  HOSPITAL TO BE BUILT.  to purchase one  of the hundred engines in sight you  is in splendid health and  spirits, is [ cannot locate the owner or any per-  well satisfied with-'his.trip and pur- j son who knows anything about the  matter.  "The great drawback to Nome  is the litigation into which  half the countsy is plunged. The  original locators of claims used but  one stake, which is illegal, and the  2000 Klondikers who packed across  the ice from Dawson in February  proceeded to jump every . good  claim in sight, and I believe tlieir  locations will eventually be declared good. In.tho meantime the  military are holding all the claims  involved, and iu several, districts  United States receivers are taking  all the gold produced, and banking  it, pending a decision from the  . courts as to the titles.  "it was amusing to note the actions of many of the people who  came in expecting to be able to  pick up nuggets anywhere. Nome  "is a country which requires experienced prospectors and hard work.  When a man strikes a paystreak he  is'a made man, for the dirt is rich  and there are lots of good locations."  Mr. Akers has a small quantity of  dust left after liquidating the expenses of the trip. It is fine dust  worth about $18 an ounce. He  states that in the outlying camps  dust is the ordinary currency.  TUAN   SAVES   HIS  NECK,  BUT  WILL   BE  f -.'/*  Directors  So Decided at a  Meeting  Held  Last Night���Cottage  Also, to Be Erected.  An addition to the general hospital is to be erected at once. This  decision was arrived at last night  when the board of directors met in  secretary Swannell's office to  sider   the   building   matter.  con-  sorae time past the hospital has  been crowded to its utmost capacity  and recently the nursing staff was  compelled to vacate its quarters to  enable extra accommodation to be  given. The directors have now to  rent rooms in private houses and  this outlay equals the interest and  sinking fund on a building such as  is contemplated. The increase in  patients must not be taken" as ar.  indication that sickness is more  prevalent than formerly. The very  reverse is the case in Nelson  and immediate vicinity, but  surgical cases are now being  treated at the hospital here  which formerly went to Spokane and the coast. The special  demand is now for private wards  to be occupied by patients who are  able to pay well for the service and  by providing this accommodation  the earning capacity of the institution will be very materially increased.  The directors have concluded to  proceed at once with the erection  of a six-room cottage on the hospital  grounds. The building will be neat  in design and substantially put together. If thepresent demand for  accommodation holds steady the  four private wards can' be kept  filled, and in any event the building  ean be utilized for the nursing staff'  The arrangements have been left in  the hands of a special committee  consisting of Mrs. Stocks, judge  Forin, AV.

While lie did not bring out  a' big bag of gold dust, Mr. Akers  dug enough to enable him to split  even on the trip, and has several  claims located which he figures will  well repay development. "His conclusion as to Nome's possibilities is  that while the country was greatly  overdone this year, it is a rich district and the man with the experience to locate likely claims is surer  of making a "stake"' than nn any of  the new districts he has been in.  Mr. Akers left Nelson on March  22nd last and-Jsailed from Seattle  on April 5th. lie made ��� the trip in  the steamer Dqvp, and was '37 days  en route, the craft being in an ice  pack for 250 miles! On' June 14th  he landed at Nome City and after  spending two-xdays in the city  struck out' for; the diggings. His  iirst work was| on . Solomon river,  which he prospected without*locating any claims. Then he went  to Tnpkok,'"afterwards to Galovin  Bay, theii'"��� to, Chechalker creek  "where several 'claims were staked  aud abandoned;- on to the foothills  and back to'.Nome, whence - he  ; leffc for . Dawson, City,, on' August  22nd, spent 22 days oh-the" trip~and  arrived,in Seattle on October Oth.  At Tupkok Mr. Akers came within an ace of making a stake. He  and a partner located a claim on  the tundra 00 by -200 feet. The  beach at this point was only about  a mile long, confined between two  rocky points and' bisected by the  old channel of a stream. Prior to  Mr. Akers' arrival the beach was  exhausted, it being estimated that  a million dollars 'had been washed  out. The miners were "then  turning their attention to  the tundra, whicli required  thawing before it could be worked.  Akers and his partner sank a shaft  to bedrock, 13 "feet down, and on  the bottom of the shaft they  cleaned up $120 for one day's work.  The_dirt_pannedj)n.tlJiW-biand^thr.ee.

Litigation of this nature is slow, aiid  rather than lose the summer Akers  pulled stakes and moved on. The  claims on which he bases his hopes  were staked by his partner on Gold  Run, a tributary of Blue-stone  creek, wliich empties into Clarence  Bay. Four properties on this  creek have turned out big, thus demonstrating the merit of tlio  section.  Referring to tlio destitution and  sickness said to exist in Nome, Mr.  Akers said: "I heard the stories  but saw little of the facts. In the  outlying camps everyone had money  and outfits, but in Nome City there  were many men who knew nothing  of practical prospecting and who  had settled down in tents or without shelters after a half-hearted  effort in the country. - The city  was unsanitary and foul besides  being-crowded with 'people and was  anything but a desirable place to  live.. There was much sickness  about the. native- villages. The  Indians died off. in scores, some  villages being so depleted that the  survivors were unable to bury their  dead, who were left lying-'around or  buried by white men. Personally I  helped to bury half a do/en  natives. They did not seem to  be able to stand the approach of civilization. The greatest loss of money in Nome was encountered by men who made commercial ventures. Every ship coining in brought thousands of dollars  worth of merchandise, and as the  majority of the incomers had outfitted at Seattle, there was no sale  Court .Was Adjourned on Account of  the Prisoner's Hysterical  Condition.  9.-  Gkorgrtow.v, Kentucky, October  One of the most remarkable  scenes ever enacted in a Kentucky  court occurred tonight in the trial  of Henry Youtsey, charged -with  ;.beiug=implicated-in=the=shoofcing=bf=  governor Goebel, the defendant  himself being the other participant.  The court room was crowded afc the  time and tlio excitement was intense.  Arthur Goebel was put on the  stand and judge AVilliams, who for  tho first time appeared for the  prosecution did the questioning.  Arthur Goebel said: "I talked  with Youtsey tho day he was arrested and later in the afternoon in  the jail in Frankfort in reference to  the murder of my brother."  Jusfc at this point Youtsey arose  behind his attorneys aud in a loud  voice said: "It is untrue; it is a lie.  I never spoke to thafc man in'my  life."  Colonel Crawford told him to be  quiet and sit down and others took  hold of him. '���!. will not sit down.  I never said a word to that"man; it  is untrue."  He was shouting by this time and  every one was becoming excited.  Youtsey's wife sprang to his side,  and while endeavoring to make  him sit down could be heard saying: "Now you havo killed iny husband I suppose you are satisfied."  Then Youtsey shouted again : "I  am innocent, -there is no blood on  my hands ; these men are swearing  my life away." Two or three deputy  sheriffs went over and grabbed him.  He struggled wildly and said : "Let  .me alone I will nofc sit down."        ��  Arthur Goebel meanwhile sal;  sphinxlike in the witness chair and  never turned his head. Finally  after Youtsey was forced to his'aeafc  he shouted again : "Goebel is not  dead, all the demons in hell could  not kill him." ���  Court was adjourned on account of  the prisoner's hysterical condition.

Sanca, October {'>.���To the Editor  of The Tribune: Several notices  have recently appeared iu tho  Nelson press for and against the  removal of the recording office from  Kuskonook to Ci,e.stoii_.^_;_As_a_in,oj^i  pector of eight years' standing in  this district, I beg leave to express  my views of the matter. About a  year and a half ago the record offlce  was removed from Rykerfs solely  because it was at one end of the  district;,  and  was   consequently a  very   great   inconvenience  to the  great bulk of the prospectors.     At  that time a suitable location for the  offlce was  pretty thoroughly gone  into, and  Kuskonook  was  decided  upon to bo the most desirable.    By  consulting a map of the mining district, ifc is easy to see  that  Kuskonook is nearly   the   center.     Tho  great  majority  of the  claims  are  situated  on  the following  creeks,  which are all north of Kuskouook,  namely, Lockhart, La France, Goat,  Granite,   Martell,    Midge,    Cultus,  Shaw,      Boulder,      Gray's,      and  along       the       east      shore       of  Kootenay lake.  The idea expressed  in   the Nelson  Miner of a recent  date, that the White Grouse mine-'  ral   claims   are   more adjacent; to  Creston  than  to Kuskonook is-altogether  wrong.     Parties  leaving  White Grouse or the  Storm   King  basin   can   make   Kuskonook,   via  Sanca, in one day (a  distance of 24  miles), whereas, on tho other .hand,  by going via Kitchener to  Creston  is 4i>  miles, and   according   to present   accommodations   would   take-  three  days  at  least.     As a proof  fchafc fche White Grouse claim  own-,  ers do nofc want the office removed,  every  one of  them have attached  their names to a petition forwarded  to the minister  of  mines, praying  him to leave the record office where  it is.    I would  like to know what  particular advantages Creston  has  over Kuskonook ?   In conclusion I  would add that it would be well to  build   the   new office   at   once at  Kuskonook, as this district is rapidly coming, to the front.as wrfc  nessed by tho recent heavy invest-,  ment at Goat creek and' in the'--1  White Grouse.

October    9.���The.  board of   ordinance  and  fortifica-,  tions has been holding^a^protractedi!  session   in   Washington, and   ad;  journed   today   after   taking   im-::l  portaiit action regarding disappear-^ |  ing gun carriages.   The board has'-  recommended to  the secretary of  war that no disappearing gun car-;  riages  be made.    There  has'been  much contention among array offi-'  cers    for    some    time,   especially |  among artillery officers as to the f  value of disappearing gun carriages  upon   fortifications   for   coast defence.    Tho consensus    of opinion i  has been fchafc the disappearing carj  riage was good   for low sites, but  the  majority thought ib was uot  best for high sites.

We are showing a nice line  of suitings in VENETIAN  CLOTHS  both Liberals, will be re-elected' in  Vancouver and Westminster districts. In Yale-Cariboo, MacNeilli  and Galliher and Foley have commenced counting noses; but the  constituency is so large that they  will be unable to get through before  election day. The Tribune predicts that the delegation from  British Columbia will be three and  three, counting Ralph' Smith as a  Liberal���and he is fche ablest of the  bunch.   A coNPfiitroNCio was held last  night at tho Hume hotel between  F. J. Deane of Kamloops and .Tames  Wilks of Nelson. Both would like  to see thn Liberals and the Laborers united on a candidate, and  either would be willing to be the  candidate. It is too late now to  repair political fences that should  never have been allowed to be  blown down.  From $8.50 to  $16 per Suit  the: newest shades out.

Aulat Morrison will have a  walkover in Westminster running  against Edgar Dewdney, who has  already been honored far beyond  his ability by the' Conservative  party. v     '  Ymir will give candidate Galliher  a majority, so ifc is said by men  who-know the political leanings of  the people of that uncertain town.  On tho othor hand, Kuskonook will  give candidate MacNeill a majority.  Mayor Gardrn of Vancouver,  had he voted right; on several questions during the last session of tho  legislature,would not now be up  against as hard a game as he is. He  is a good fellow, and all that; but  he lacks sand at times.  Tub Conservatives of Revelstoke  are not a band  of brothers.    One  ^faction   i.s called  "Peanliters," and  fche   larger   and  more  respectable  crowd   aro   named "True   Blues."  The  "True Blues"  are supporting  candidate MacNeill to a man; tho  "Peanuters"   are    doing    nothing  more than working the  provincial  government for offices.   The "Peanut" crowd came to "Revelstoke all  in   a. bunch   from  the Northwest  Territories,   and   immediately,   on  their arrival began hunting for soft  government positions and not for  hard work.   The "True Blues," on  tho other hand, are old-time-employees  of   the   Canadian    Pacific  Railway Company, prospectors and  miners and business men of repute,  as the following-names go to show :  William Newman, Thomas Kilpat-  rick, William; Cowan, George Mc-  Cartoiy J.

An increased activityjs shown afc  the present time among the silver  properties of Montana. Two causes  are attributed for this stato. of  affairs. One is that- the silver  market has shown a healthy  strength lately, coupled with the  iu 1893, the smelters have materially*  lowered the charge for treating  ores; and this is especially thecase-  in Butte. Another reason is that  some of the western smelters find a  fact that since the great fall in silver  shortage of silicious ores, because  the silver lead ores of the Coeur  d'AIenes and British Columbia are  produced uowr in greater abundance.  This has caused the works at  Tacoma and Everett to skirmish  for silicious ores. A number of  silver mines which havo been idle  in Butte and vicinity for years are  either in operation or are making  preparation to s';ai't up owing to  this increased demand for tho class  of"- ore they can furnish.  HOWARD DID NOT~~TESTIFY  Committed for Trial.  Fred Howard is now lodged in  the provincial gaol awaiting trial  on the charge of attempting to  murder William T. Muller on Sun-  day lasfc. The preliminary hearing  was concluded at the police court'  yesterday, when evidence-for the  prosecution only was taken, Howard declining to give any testimony.  He had no counsel, bufc when the  case comes before the assizes, the  court Avill appoint a lawyer to conduct the defence.  The most interesting evidence  given at yesterday's hearing was  that of George Robinson; who swore  that when he entered the room  where Howard shot Muller, Howard  pointed the revolver at .him and  said, "I'll fix you too!" snapping  thehammer half a dozentimes.  The balance of the testimony  submitted threw no new light on  the matter. Muller is resting  easily at the hospital aud continues  to gain strength. Thebnllotinhisleg  is giving him no-trouble and unless  something unforseen arises it may  be allowed to remain where it lies.  g-g-^-^;g-'g'g^*,^*-&*g-'Sl,fll:flLg-g-fl��rg;g-gr-g:fig'^'^  ^^-^A^AA^AA^dA^^-A^d^^'  it)  \l/  to  \i/  vto  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  it)  il/  <& CO.  ���VVWMWtfWl^i<^^W/VV��rVM  DRY GOODS AND CARPETS  ���^^^<i^>V^^V��n^WWV\rW^^*^^rw^A^r*at^^^1-><t^,J  AT EASTERN PRICES  FRED  IRVINE <&  CO  A  ^���s-'a-s,^'^'&'^'S'S'>'S'S*^'X-&,a*&-ft*^,ar>-'a>'ar,'r',st,a,^-2fc ___-___\___\___.___\___  ���J��<**-m>-^'&-_m'-*9-A*"*9-**-0*99-t*999-si?taTS99999  ^���VQ-VW'  Y^'AA'^-^.l  *\W  to  \l>  \l>  \l>  W  it/  to *  il/  il)  it)  it)  it)  it)  il)  to  to  to  it)  il)  il)  il)  il)  il)  it/  il)  il)  Nelson Furniture Co.

GRATEFUL FOR- A KIND ACT  An Indian's Reward.  In "Travels in New England and  INVw York" president Dwiffht of  Yule university tells a good story  oi' Indian wit and friendship.  In the early days of Litchfield,  Connecticut, an Tndian called at the  ,i4.Hvara and asked tho landlady for  food, frankly stating that he had  no money with which to pay for it.  Hluj refused* him harshly, bnt a  win!? man who sat by noted the  'ivJ- man's half-famished state and  ofl":j-ted to pay for liis supper.  Tie.ineal was furnished, and the  hiGi'ifl, his hunger satisfied, returned to the (ire and told his benefactor a story.  ''You know the Jlible?" said the  redskin. -  The man assented.  I? "Well;" said tho Tndian, "the  Rible says. God made world* and  then he took him and look at him  aud say, 'lie good, very good.' lie  made light and ho took him and  look at him aiul say, 'Ife good, very  good.' Then he made dry land and  water anil sun and moon and grass  and trees, and took him and look at  him and say, 'He good, very good.'  Then he made beast and birds and  lishes, and took him and look- at  him and say, 'Jle good, very good.'  Then he made man', and, he took  him and look at him and say, 'He.  good, very good. Then he made  Woman, and took him and look at  him, and he no dare say one' such  word 1"  , "That last conclusion was- uttered  with a meaning glance at the landlady-;;-'    Some' years after this occurrence  the man who paid for the Indian's  supper was captured by the redskins and carried to Canada, whore  he was made to work like a slave.  One day an Indian-came to him, recalled to his mind the occurrence  at the Litchfield tavern, and ended  by saying:  "I that Indian. Now my -turn  pay. I see you home. Come with  me."  And the redskin guided the man  I lack, to Litchfield.  Bather High an Estimate.  "Canada will produce $50,000,000  iu gold iu 1000," said a well known  "mining   engineer.    "Klondike will  produce $35,000,000, British Columbia about $12,000,000, and the rest  _ofith&.countrvi.$3tQ()0.000." -1 am  inclined to think that this estimate  is not so far astray as the first  glance might seem to indicate.     I  have met a dozen mine owners from  [ Dawson, and all assure me that  fully half the gold mined in the  Klondike is sent unrecorded out of  the country.    Mine owners tlo not  |, like the ten per cent.royalty on.the  gross   output.      They, manage to  | evade the royalty altogether in  some cases; and they never pay  more than sixty per cent of what  the law calls for. Hence.wholesalo  deception to evade the royalty, and  the consequent inability of the  statistician   to   discover   the  real  'amount.of gold coming out of the  district. Klondike has had an  enormous output this year,' and I  really believe $35,000,000 is not an  excessive estimate. . Moreoyer, a  vast amount of machinery is being  imported, and claims are how being  worked summer and winter, .with  the result of a greatly increased  output. Indeed, the country, I believe, will in due time "exceed, the  wildestpredietionsma.de for it a  fe'w years'ago-  Oratorical Methods.  London News.

Whilst one has almost an unlimited  supply of money at- his command,  and is not too grievously hampered  in disposing of it for campaign purposes, the other has but a meager  subscription list, and is bound hand  and foot by the Corrupt Practices  Act.

WE   HAVE   THE   STOCK  Wholesale and Retail  Now For  Where the Gold Goes.  The amount of gold turned into  coin each year by the mints of the  world is a mere nothing to the huge  quantity used in gilding picture  frames, painting signs, binding  books, designing on furniture and  on pottery. The world's entire  stock of gold is about 1100 tons,  but of this only 100 exists in the  form,of coin.  This stock is increasing by about  three and a half tons a year. Four  tons and a half are minted, but a  ton is lost by waste. This is a  small item compared with the 120  tons which "jewelers and gilders use  up every year, and none of this vast  amount is recoverable. France is  the largest consumer of gold for the  arts. She uses .'J5,000 pounds a  "year. Great Britain is a good second with 3-1,100. Tho United States  follows next with 31,000 pounds.  Some things marked "Made in Germany" must be genuine, for her  craftsmen use 20,040 pounds. Switzerland, with her big watch industry, absorbs 18,000 pounds;' Italy,  0100 pounds; Russia, 0000 - pounds,  and the smaller nations the rest. It  is estimated/ too, that in India gold  to- the value of nearly $5,000,000  each year is withdrawn from circulation by native hoarders, and in  other countries,- bunching them all  together, a similar amount.

Shearman, a well known citizen  of Brooklyn, New York, especially  well known in economic circles for  his free trade views, a note left by  him; was read over his grave by the.  officiating clergyman. It read as  follows: "I made a note several  days ago. I wish au inexpensive,  unostentatious, cheerful funeral,  with no gloom, no 'darkened room,  no dreariness of any. kind. While  I" have-.had,-many- happy- days in  life,.I look forward to the- day of  my death as-the happiest of all; not  that I imagine myself prepared for  the presence.of God, but .because I  believe, that the work of preparation.will go on more rapidly in. the  future life than.in the present, and  because I have entire.confidence in  Surpassing1  Display in  All the fashionable creations  in Fall and Winter wear are  included in my last consignment of Scotch and Irish  Serges, Tweeds and Worsteds, and Fancy Trouserings  E.

'   A Fair Statement.  Mr. iloblin, the new, premier of  Manitoba, is not one of ?yonr cocksure election prophets ol' the Tapper type. He was in Belleville a  day or two ago on a visit, aud was  asked what the outcome of the  fight.betweeu Mr. Sifton and Hugh  John Macdonald would likely-be.  "Well," said Mr. Uoblin, Mr. Sifton  is a man,of very considerable energy, he has a very perfect organi-*  zation, he has all the implements of  war and will make a determined  fight, but Hugh John can oppose to  Sifton his personal popularity, his  consistency in public life, in so far  as his pledges to the public are couj,  corned, and these make him an  ideal candidate, so much so that  those in a position,tp*know believe  he will win. Mr.Sifton is personally a gentleman,' yet. hi.s record, or  rather the-record\of his party, does  not commend itself to the people  of Manitoba." Now, 'coming from,  a political opponent of Mr. Sifton,  that is a very, fair statement.  Nelson Opera House  October 12th and 13th.  I-Vl Famous  JUJL=  WHITE  PEOPLE  NEWEST .    COSTLIEST . .

Deane���of Kamloops, was in  the city yesterday to consult with  .lames Wilks on political matters.  The result of the conference has  not. been divulged.  The remains of the late .Tames  Campbell, who died at .the hospital  on Monday, ^weie sent.east last  night. The body will be interred  at l<]xeter, Ontario, where deceased's  parents reside:  W. H. Johnston oC Vancouver  will -visit Nelson on Monday night  next. Tie is deputy grand master  of the T. O. O. F. in, this province,  and will be entertained on Monday  night by the local Oddfellows in the  lodge room.  The regular meeting of Court Star  of Kootenay, Ancient Order of  Foresters, takes.'place tonight at  Fraternity hall. Tt is expected that  Tt. MeLeod, tbe court's delegate to  the district high court, will give his  report.  Provincial constable A. D. Drummond has been transferred to Moyie  vice Cox who goes to the Victoria  district. Constable J )rnmrnond was  formerly at Plumpeis Pass, Vancouver Island, and was moved from  there to Teslin Lake, Cassiar district, from which he has recently  returned. "  5 Ij. Pratt of Spokano arrived in  Nelson last night ori�� route to Sandon, He is secretary of the American Boy Mining Company operating  at Sandon, and will make his headquarters at the American Boy mine  in future. It is understood that  Mr. Pratt is arranging to purchase  supplies for the party in Nelson.  The advance sale] of tickets for  the Alba Heywood concert to-'  night has been large and a good  house is assured. The firemen's  benefit fund is an excellent cause  and the entertainment itself merits  a crowded house. With these  features combined it seems likely  that the Heywood .company will be  greeted by a bumper house.  No further light' has been shed  on the cause of the death of Eva  Moser, who was found lifeless iu a  shack on Ward street Monday  night. The general surmise is that  she succumbed to the effects of  heavy drinking, or to an illness resulting from this cause. Dr. Arthur, the coroner, will hold a. post  mortem examination this morning,  and if anything to justify the step  is ascertained an inquest will be  held.  ASK FOR A POSTPONEMENT  Until November.  The Nelson Bar Society has applied to the attorney-general to  postpone the assises set down for  Nelson on the ifith instant to a  date in November after the elec-  .tions. A telegram was dispatched  yesterday morning signed by all  the lawyers practicing in the city  urging the postponment. The excitement naturally attending the  election campaign is brought forward as a reason for the change,  besides which the legal fraternity  would like to tako part iu the fight,  but cannot do so if the assi/.es are  held as originally intended owing;  to tho unusually large number of  actions coming up. There are a  number of precedents for postponing tho assi/.es, but the initiative  has always been taken by the department.  Cases for the Assizes.  The first batch of civil cases for  the assizes was entered yesteiday as  follows:  TOWN LOTS  FOR SALE  o good bus!  .10 feel, frontage.  Two good business lots in the town of rhocnix,  ge.

For particulars apply to  MISS PALMER, Jowphlne Strati.  Steve McKay vs. Arthur Phillips,"  in which the plaintiff seeks to adverse the defendant's application  for a certificate of improvements  for the Surprise mineral claim on  the south side of the west fork of  St. Mary's river, five miles from  Sawyer's pass, and to obtain a declaration that the Surprise is an illegal location in so far as it encroaches on the Northern Light  claim, also for a perpetual injunction restraining defendant or his  agents from trespassing on tho  Northern Light claim.  Waterland vs. City of Greenwood, in which the plaintiff claims  $5000 from the City of Greenwood  for damages for alleged negligence  of the defendants in constructing  and maintaining a certain canal in-  ( tended   to   divert   the  waters   of  Boundary creek from their natural.  course "j^-they flowed through  Greenwood, whereby plaintiff's real  and personal property on Copper  street was damaged. Au injunction is also asked to compel defendants to maintain a sufficient outlet for the water to preventfurther  flooding of plaintiff's lands and premises. .Plaintiff Waterland is the  proprietor of the Miners' hotel at  Greenwood, and it was the hotel  which suffered from floods.  Daniel W. Henley of Spokane vs.  the Reco-Mining,. & Milling Company, Limited, of Sandon, promises  to be one ol* the most interesting  cases on. the docket. In this action  plaintiff asserts that .lie purchased  on November Stli, 1S08, :t:.()0 shares  of Reco stoek from L. K Houck  and L. Peterson, and on January  10th, 1809, h'o also purchased 2500  shares from Houck and S. T. Arthur. Subsequent to the last deal  ���plaintiff--''���' applied to the Reco  company to have the transfers of- the shares registered  whicli was refused, the company  denying that plaintiff had any  title to tiie stock. Henley asks the  court to declare him to be the owner  of the shares and that he is entitled  to have'the'-. transfers registered, a  mandatory injunction directing the  Reco company to enter the transfers and $5000 ~ damages -for the  ������wrongful refusal of the company to  enter the stock. In its statement  of the defense the company claims  that L. E. Houck aud L. Peterson  were never the owners of Reco  stock, or that if Houck was the  owner, which is deuied, he became  the owiier thereof by fraud. The  fraud alleged is that llouck. Peterson and Arthur conspired to cheat  .1. M. Harris, president of the Reco  company iii a card game in which  Harris lost money to the face value  of the shares. The stock was issued before 'the cheating became  known and then the.Reco company  refused.to acknowledge the loyalty  of .the transfer.     .  James L. Staiiifor vs Robert  Heddle, an action arising out of the  sale of the Venus group on Morning mountain. Plaintiff states that  he, negotiated the sale of the  property to Toronto parties, and  seeks to recover 10 per cent commission on defendant's share of the  proceeds ofrthe deal, which netted  him $3000. in cash and 125,000  shares of stock. Stamford's claim  is, therefore, for $300 cash and 125,-  000 shares of Venus stock.  These cases tire set'down for trial  on the 20th/instant, when the civil  cases will be taken up.  NELSON JflNCERF SHOOT  Takes Place Saturday.  The annual shoot of the Nelson  company Roeky Mountain- Rangers  will be fired at the ranges on Saturday next unless the weather proves  altogether-.too stormy. The shoot-  iug is to commence at 8:30 a; m.  and will continue without cessation  until the program is concluded.  The'inembers of the company will  parade in ^uniform, and tho match  is for militiamen, exclusively. Three  targets will be used to expedite the  matches and a caterer will be on  the ground at noon.   The_!_exec_utivo__of the__company_  meets tonight to arrange the card  for the day, and it is probable that  the principal events will be the  nursery match for members who  have never won over $3 with a military rifle, a match standing at 200  yards and the g rand aggregate.  The class firing'for the year as required by the militia department  will be done on Saturday aiid the  result forwarded to Ottawa. If  possible .the Maxim gun will be  taken to the ranges and fired by  twojteains. This event will be decidedly interesting as the gun has  never beeii used with ball ammunition in Nelson. A splendid assortment of prizes has beeii secured,  headed by the corporation's donation of $25, which may be added to  and invested in a handsome silver  trophy. "  .  PERSONAL.
