CENTS  m mm of the coal minebs  It is Thought a Settlement Will Soon be Effected, but  President Mitchell is Reticent.  A CONVENTION TO BE GALLED TO CONSIDER THE TERMS  ..Hazelton. Pennsylvania, October  7.���A representative of the Associ-  :t(ed Press learned touighb that  .sheriff Harvey has reached the  limit of his patience in regard to  i he marching of large bodies of  men. The action of seA'eral hundred men in running across the  property of Calvin, Pardee and Co.,  at Lattimer yesterday has much to  ��lo with the decision to be more  stern hereafter.  Tonight, n carload of the sheriff's  deputies, fully armed, lies in the  Lehigh Valley railroad ready to  shirt at a moment's notice. l_ was  also learned, owing to tho rumors  of contemplated marches tomorrow  morning,  thab- all   the   industrial  .companies in this region have extra  policemen on duty tonight. All  tiie Lehigh Valley Coal Company's  collieries iu this city are heavily  ���guarded.  ., .Sheriff. Harvey called on president Mitchell ab the.strike headquarters and requested him this  afternoon,   as    president    of   the  ��� United Mine Workers, to use his influence to have them refrain from  farther marching and that if he dkl  not then  Mitchell would be held  'morally responsible for whatever  happened. Mr. Mitchell, it is understood, - informed   the sheriff that  ��� orders for the marching  did - nob  emanate   from  headquarters,   but  ^nevertheless he would do all in his  ���power to haAre the men on strike  preserve the peace in every possible  -manner.  - As far as could be learned tonight  ,��� there.will be no marching tomorrow  jybrniug- in '.which event, there is  'nOTdry"likely"W bVrin jrtrouble/ W.  -.J. Elliot, an aide on major-general  Miller's staff, Avas called ou tonight  'by   president Mitchell.   .The two  -were together a short time.     The  '.object   of   the  conference   is not  known as neither Avould have anything to say regarding their talk.  .President   Mitchell   will    go   to  Shamokin Tuesday morning for the  "purpose "of   participating   in   the  labor demonstration at that place.  From Shamokin he will go direct to  Scranton Avhere another labor  demonstration will be held on  Wednesday.  Miners May Accept. ,  Hazblton, Penn., October 7.���A  conference Avhich is? believed to  mark the beginning of tho end of  the anthracite coal miners' strike,  Avhich enters upon its fourth week  tomorrow, was held at the headquarters of the United Mine Workers here this afternoon.  ��� Although tiie information was  not given out, ib is known that the  question of issuing a call for a joint  convention was the principal matter discussed.  President Mitchel, after the conference, said he would have nothing  to say tomorrow in regard to tho  convention. If the date has been  fixed only Mr.-Mitchell and his col-,  leagues know it. Of course .the  principal.matter to come before; the  miners Avill be the acceptance. or  rejection of the 10 per cent net increase offered by most of the operators.  President Mitchell said today not  one official of the mine workers  AA'ill take a hand in any action the  convention might take, as the men'  must themselves settle everything  that comes before them. The belief is general that the miners will  accept the increase.  To. Gall a Convention.  Philadelphia, October 7.���It is  the general belief that president  Mitchell of the United Mine Workers will tomorrow issue a call for a  convention of ..miners Jo consider  the offer o"f increased" wages, to be  held at Scranton, and the supposition is that next Thursday Avill be  named as the time.. Mr. Mitchell,  however, declined to give publicity  to the matters discussed by himself  and other officials of the organization at a secret conference today at  Ila/.elton, and he gave no intimation as to when the convention  would be held.  the bitter feeling between those  who use out of date fishing apparatus and those who employ the  latest contrivances.  A dispatch from "Vigo says that  the naval commandant of the post  who AA'as attacked yesterday, as already cabled, took refuge on a German warship and a strong escort  Avas needed to protect him against  the populace on going ashore.  ���   Great Northern Train Wreck.    '  Tacoma, October 7.���A Great  Northern local passenger train  southbound, and a local freight  train bound north collided on the  <,coast line just south of Edmonds  yesterday. Sam Work, engineer of  the passenger train, was killed, and>  engineer Smart of the freight  fatally injured. Horace Hollyburn  and Mrs. Marshall, both of Everett,  were seriously injured.  LORD STRATHCONA'S HORSE  COWBOYS AND SCOUTS WHO SAW  MUGH   FIGHTING.  CHINA AFFAIRS IN STATU QUO  THE IMPERIAL FAMILY NOT YET  READY TO RETURN.  The -Washington Government Desires  to Have the Emperor in Fekin  as soon as Possible.'  COST   OF   MACADAMIZING  Pointers for Rossland.  Columbia avenue in Rossland is  ' to that town what Baker street is  to Nelson, and as' Baker street was  ' at one   time, Columbia avenue is  .still, that is, muddy Avhen wet and  dusty when dry.: Commenting on  its present condition, the Itossland  ~Mi ner'says':-- --���  "After this was done it would be  .necessary to remove from nine  inches -to a foot of the upper surface of the roadway and then thoroughly consolidate to the lower  surface so that it would be a solid  ?"bed which would be drained by the  ('gutters provided. After this is  ,done the road metal could be put  upon the street, but not before else  the stone would sink into the soft  places and the result would be a  mud road as before. The mebal itself would nob be difficult to obtain  as some of the waste dumps of the  adjacent mines if screened Avoiild  afford excellent material. But a  steam roller at the cost of $3000  would haye to be bought, or the  city might 'borrow one from Nelson. As the cost of crushing macadam is about 50 cents a yard and  the cost of laying is about the same,  to leave aside the cost of excavation at 35 cents a yard, it will be  seen that the cost of macadam ination of Columbia aArenue and the  approaches to the depots is something which will run iuto a sum  which cannot be estimated at much  less than $10,000, if it can be accomplished for that figure."   '  The Rossland Miner is away off  in its estimates of the cost of macadamizing. Columbia avenue is 100  feet wide. 'Allowing for 20-foot  sidewalks on ea eh side of the street,  : would leave 00 feet of street to be  . macadamized. Stone curbing will  cost-$1.25 afoot, and stone pavement for crossings 50 cents a foot.  Broken stone suitable for macadam  .will coat, not less than $1.50 a yard,  and it is safe to estimate that the  cost of puttiug it in place will be  another $1.50 a yard. If this estimate is ,a fair one, Rossland can  macadamize Columbia avenue���first  spending $5,250 for a road-making  plant���for $8 a lineal foot.    '  Foreign Missions Board.  Si;. Louis, Missouri, October 7.���  Next Wednesday the American  board of- commerce for foreign  =mis^jmisJwilLbegin=its^90th-meeting-  at Pilgrim Congregational church  in this city. The meeting will be  iu session three days and will be replete with matters of interest and  great importance. Samuel B. Capen  of Boston will preside. Between  200 and 300 members, returned-foreign missionaries and workers in.  home fields, and their wiA'es, officers  of the various women's mission  boards and theological students will  be present, in addition to many  prominent Congregational ministers  and laymen from different parts of  the country. Those will be.the  most important of" any meetings  ever held by the board since its  organization in 1S10 owing to the  famine in India and the crisis in  China. - .  The Emir Arrives.  Suez, October 7.���The American  steam collier Emir, which recently  sank in the Suez canal while on her  way to Manilla with coal for the  American fleet, was successfully  floated and has arrived at Sue/,  roads. She is unable; however, to  enter the port as she draws too  much water. Her cargo is being  discharged and divers Avill examine  her bottom to ascertain the extent  of her injuries.  Spanish Fishing Troubles.  Madrid, October 7.���The Spanish  government is devoting serious  consideration to the rivalry among  the fishermen along the Galacian  coast Avhich culminated yesterday  in firing on the Spanish gunboat  Vasco Numez de Balboa as she was  leaving the port of Vigo. There is  apparently no means of removing  Washington, ��� October 7.���Developments of auy consequence in  the Chinese situation are not looked  for until the return of president  McKiniey to the capitol. He is expected on Tuesday morning and on  the afternoon of that day a cabinet  meeting Avill probably be held,  when tho question presented by the  French'note will be gone over iu an  informal way. The French note  which recently, has been addressed  to the poAvers is not regarded as  just now of pressing necessity for  action, as several of the nations interested already have   instructed  their representatives - in Pekin- to'  ascertain .whether"' "the " imperial'  edict complete names- the persons  deserving of punishment and other  features of 'the proposition. This  goA'ernment does not consider seriously the proposition which looks,  to the prohibition, of the importation of arms into China and the dismantling of the fortifications. Interest meanwhile centers in the report whicli Mr. Conger will make  regarding the adequacy of tho punishments to be meted out by the  Chinese goA'ernment to those persons Avho Avere instrumental in the  Boxer revolt, ancl the future course  of this goA'ernment may depend  lai'gely on what the investigations  now being conducted develop. No  advices have as yet come from Mr.  Conger on the subject, but this is  not surprising, as the work to be  undertaken is of considerable magnitude.  ===sThe-AVar=department=offieials=ex==  pect that all the- American troops  which are to be sent from Pekin to  Manila will be out of China hy the  21st instant.  Such efforts as have been made  by the state department urging the  return of the imperial family to the  capital city seem up to this time to  have been ineffectual. The last  official advices of minister-Wu now  about a week old indicated that the  province of Sheii Si is peaceable.  The fact that the acting governor  of the province was directed to  "refrain from all extravagant preparations" in making arrangements  for the imperial family, is in Mr.  Wu's mind au indication that their  sojourn at Sinan Fu is to be but  temporary.  Conditions respecting the food  and telegraphic communication  Avere unsatisfactory in Tai Yung in  Shan Si province, where the court  has beeu located since its departure  from Pekiu, and these essential requisites haA-e improved in their new  abode.  Mr. Wu believes that earl Li, the  principal peace negotiator, already  has started for :Pekin. As a message of several days ago indicated  that it was impossible to reach him  by Telegraph at Tien-Tsin as he  had started for the capital.  Cut Down at Sea.  New York, October 7.���The old  Dominion line steamer Hamilton  brought to this port today captain  Smith and seven men, who comprised the crew of tho Philadelphia  schooner Shaw, bound from Philadelphia to Providence with 900 tons  of coal.    The vessel lies on the bot-  The High  Commissioner  Arrives and  Talks About English Elections.  A Boost for Chamberlain.  New York, October 7.���Lord  Strathcona, the high commissioner  tof the Dominion of Canada, arrived  on the Cunard steamship Etruria  today. Lord Strathcona-furnished  aud equipped a regiment of six  hundred and fiftj' horses, and sent  thein." from Canada", to fight the  Boei-s at his owii-^expense. The  regiment consisled'eliiefly of scouts  and cowboys and AA'as commanded  by colonel Steele.  "Much against my Avill,"said lord  Strathcona, "the regiment has been  named Strathcona's Horse, and being composed of' co\vboys and  scouts, it did duty as scouts in general Buller's forward march, a fact  I regret to say, Avhich ^accounts for  the regiment's depletion. Many  have been killed and a very large  number Avounded. v They lefts, in  March- and f dc��> not know when  they Avill be back."'.-' '-J-  The high commissioner left" -.for'  Montreal tonight and when asked  Avhat he thought of the", result; of  the English elections, said -witli a  smile: "It would.,hot be proper'for  the high commissioner of Canada to  permit himself,'to'discuss Englisl^  politics, but I;may,say that there is  a wave of imperialism sAveeping  irresistibly over Europe. As for  Joseph Chamberlain, Lhave known  him forty years back,-have known  him outside of politics rfnd'very intimately indeed; and a more .upright, honest man .1 liave never ��� in  my life met."  The British consul'"general, sir  Percy Sanderson, returned :f rom' a  visib^to:.E.ucope"-6^"th;e^steauiship  Etruria today.' '-'I have not'a .woi'cT  to say about the" English elections  or anything else,"'said sir Percy, "I  spent' most of 'my vacation , in  Germany and have not been in  touch with either English or American affairs for some Aveeks."  sn  MINERS' WAGES RAISED  Georgo McAulay, manager of  the Cariboo mine at Camp McKinney, in Yale district, has  raised the wages of the men  employed at his mine from $2.50  and $3.to $3 and $3.50 a day.  All carmen and shovelers underground and all surfacemen are  now paid $3 a day, and all  haramersmen $3.50.  A DEATH DEALING TORNADO  Six Killed, Many Injured.  'Biwa'bik, Minn., October 7.���Saturday a tornado passed -through a  Finlander settlement on Pike river,  about two miles north of Biwabik,  wiping out an entire family of six.  The killed are Mr. and Mrs. Maro-  witz, William Hulabrom and a family of six neat* Pike lake, names unknown, j  Severely injured���Andrew Anderson, F. Murray, Andrew Debb  and John Morrison. About 25  others Avere more or less severely  cut and bruited. The house in  whicli the Marowitzfamily lived was  completely wrecked and the body  of Mrs. Morowitz was.crushed and  bruised. William Hilstrom Avas  struck on the head by a falling tree  and his skull crushed. He afterwards died at the hospital. The  engine house of the Duluth, Mesaba  & Northern railroad Avas completely  Avrecked and a number of locomotives and cars Avere lifted from-the  tracks and pounded into scrap iron.  Several cars were blown from the  tracks and found hundreds of feet  away.- Many buildings .destroyed  wore owned by the mining companies. The duration of tho tornado, Avhich Avas preceded by an  unusual thunder and rainstorm,  AA'as less than live minutes.  W. J. Macauley Avas shot, and  killed last night in West Virginia  by.-Pearl Newman, an actress.  torn with all sails set ��� and masts  sticking 12 feet out of the water in  the course of coastwise vessels. The  schooner was cut down in the dense  fog by the iron stem of the Hamilton three miles northeast of the  lightship at 7 o'clock this morning.  Accepted the Cut.  Danville, Penn., October 7.���The  employees of the Danville Rolling  .Mills decided to accept the 25 per  cent cut in their wages against  which they struck last week. The  fires AA'ere started today and AA'ork  will be resumed tomorrow.  OBJECT TO THE TWO PEB CENT TAX  Bubonic Plague in Scotland.

FORD ON THE ELECTIONS  Mine Owners Say it is Unfair to the Men Who  Invested Their Money Here.  Have.  BUT CAN THEY PROVE THEIR CONTENTIONS BY FIGURES  A COMPREHENSIVE  REVIEW  THE CORRESPONDENT.  BY  Says Chamberlain is the Master Spirit"  of the Unionist Canvass   and?  does not Hide His Light.  NFaW Yohk, October 7.���Mr.  Isaac N. Ford, reviews the parliamentary elections in a cable despatch to the Tribune filed at London at 1 o'clock this morning as  follows: "There are no signs'of a  -reaction in the counties against the  overwhelming Unionist "majority  registered in the boroughs. There  are feAver party gains, the opposition winning only one'' seat in  tAventy-four conbests, .that in the  Appleby district of Westmoreland'  where the population -is mainly  agricultural and the Liberal candidate exceptionally popular. The  Unionists - greatly j increase' their  vote in all industrial communities.  The two Durham districts^ which  have been strongholds of Liberalism,  are barely held and the' Liberal  majority in Wansbeck, in Northumberland, is reduced over 2000.  The temper of the masses of work-  a-day England is unmistakable.  It is deeply interested in the Avar  aud has responded with enthusiasm  to the khaki appeal. The Liberals  have gained ground mainly in out  of the way boroughs and sparsley  populated districts.  Sir Robert Reid has. held Dum-  freys burg with slight shrinkage of  his previous majority. This has  been a surprise to the politicians  for he has been a.cousistent Radical,  who has spoken most bitterly  against Mr. Chamberlain and the  South African wai. He lias a strong  hold upon the affections of his constituents. Mr. Asquith's majority  iir"Fifeslrire"h;aTbeTh=^euT51ed7_this_  tribute was well earned for he never  swerved from his attitude of loyal  support of the cause of the empire.  The elections have greatly increased  the prestige of Mr. Chamberlain.  The ministerial ..majority, according  to most careful estimates, will not  fall behind that of the last elections,  and as ho has been attacked as the  author of the Avar, affronted with  charges of having been blackmailed  by Cecil Rhodes' lawyer, and even  taunted with making money oub of  admiralty contracts, this victory is  particularly'his OAvn.  This is one of the penalties of a  campaign of slander. The victim  of abuse i.s honored and exalted  AA'hen his enemies are overthrown.  Mr. Chamberlain continues to speak  nightly in doubtful districts, and  eA'ery morning ho sends a sheaf of  helpful or congratulatorydispatches  to candidates. Ho is the master  spirit of tho Unionist canvass and  does nob hide .his light.- His influence in the next parliament AA'ill be  greater than ever, and he knows  how to extend it and obtain virtual  control of the Unionist cabinet and  press. His position in the cabinet  is the prime factor;pf. the problem  of reconstruction which lord Salisbury must speedily solve. The  opinioii i.s gaining ground that he  AviII remain in tho colonial office  unless sir Michael Hicks-Beach retires from the treasury. The argument Avill be that his office avos constantly undor fire from bhe opposition, and that he must not retreat  from it when his course has been  vindicated by the country, but remain and settle the South African  question in his own way.  John O. Regan, superintendent of  the Last Chance," one of the famous  mines in the Slocan, was in Nelsou  on Saturday.      In a general eon-  ATer8atioh with a Tribune man he  said that the   mine had resumed  .shipments,   all the   buildings and  plant destroyed by the recent fire  having been replaced ; in fact, the  property is now in-better shape for  economical AA'orking than ever before.     The big tunnel is well under  way, and when it reaches the vein,  the mine will be opened to- a depth'  of 1000 feet.  V Mr. Regan has been iu the country since lS90,'and is Avell posted on-  the conditions prevailing here. Like  all other men intrusted Avith the  management of mines, he says that  the 2 per cent tax uoav imposed by  the "province on the output of  metalliferous mines is-unfaii. To  back up his contention, he cites the  Last Chance as an ��� example. The  value of' the ore produced by that  mine, for argument's sake, is placed  at $100 a ton at the mine. The cost  of freight and smelting is placed at  $21 a ton. This leaves'$79 on which  the 2 per cent tax is.to be paid.  Tho tax Avould therefore be $1.58 a  ton. The mine management claim  that they employ 80 men, aa'Iio  under present conditions mine 100  tons of ore a Aveek, and the cost of  mining the ore is .placed at $10 a  ton. They contend that,it is .unfair to levy a tax on.this $10;_ that  the tax should be levied on the-net  '-.'i'i  FIRST   SHOOTING  A'alue of   the  ore;    or,   in . other *  AA'ords, that the tax should be 2 percent on $30 instead of $79 a ton.'1.* ;$  Taking $100 as.the .actual valued;  of Slocan ore, and $21 as*"the'actuaL&  sum paid for freight and treatment,  -a mine that ships' 100 tons a week,; ;  and keeps' the shipments at that .  rate for a year, will pay the" prov- -  ince $8216 iu taxes, and make a net  profit of $194,58'!.

That Has Occurred'in Nelscv  William Miiller' AA'as shot and  badly injured yesterday afternoon  by Fred Hoard, otherwise known  as "the French cook." The reason  of the shooting has not developed,  but it is said that it arose out of a  card game that took place on Saturday, in Avhich Hoard dost money.  Midler Avas shot in the abdomen  and iioaa' lies at the general hospital  in a critical condition. Hoard Avas  arrested by chief of police Jarvis  within a few minutes of the trouble  and is confined in the city lockup.  The weapon used was a "S-calibre  Smith & Wesson. Three shots  AA'ere fired, only one Inking effect.  William Muller, the victimjo.lLtho-  "shooting, has been in Nelson for a.  couple of mouths. He is the OAvner  of the Queen s hotel at Clurksburg,  Ontario, and has a wife and family  there. Some months ago he rented  the hotel and came Avest to look  over the country. Since coming to  Nelson he has spent most of his  time at Joe Howson's store on Baker  street, waiting on customers and  looking after the business generally.  Muller is said, by-those- who knoAV  him, to be a quiet, respectable man,  Avho gambled but little.  Hoard has been in the city for a  month or six Aveeks. -Prior to that  time lie was employed as a cook by  Mrs. Gorman, avIio runs a boarding  car on the Balfour extension. This  statement is made on the authority  of a couple of men avIio identified  the prisoner after the arrest.  Yesterday afternoon -Muller Avas  at the Bodega.   Tiie proprietor Avas  in bhe front part of the room Avhen  Hoard- came in.    Hoard   used vile  language and was ordered to leave  the house at once.    "All   right," ho  said, "if 1 can't uso my'mouth, I'll  go up to my room and take a sleep."  AVith this  lie  started toward   the  back door.    On reaching  the  door  of   the  room  Avhero   Muller    Avas  seated,   Hoard   turned  in,  and    a  moment later three shots rang ont.  Mr. Robinson, the proprietor of the  Bodega, ran back and found Hoard  and Muller alone.     Muller AA'as partially behind Hoard and had   both  arms around him.     Hoard had tho  revolver in his right hand Avith the  muzzle'pointing around to tlio  left  an inch or two from Midler's body.

At the  hospital Muller stated that he did  not know the man Avho AA'ielded llio  gun.  .Meanwhile Hoard   Aveiit   to  the  Klondike hotel, on Vernon street,  and tojdJthemen^about^tlie^placo^  that he. had killed a man, pointing  to tho blood on his hands in proof  of his statement. Chief of police  Jarvis was on Vernon street and  Avent into the Klondike a few minutes after Hoard arrived. The  chief did not knoAV of the shooting  and supposed the fellow to be bluffing. Hoard, kept, one hand  hi'."his" hip. pocket and warned  the officer to keep away remarking  that lie --Avon Id kill someone else if  he got a rope round his neck. Under  pretense of handing him a pack of .  cigarettes Jarvis put the handcuffs  on-him. Just as the arrest was  made Mr. 'Robinson came in and  confirmed tho report as tq_ the  shooting. Hoard,Avas taken to tho  lockup. On being searched his  effects gave no clue to his identity.  The only money he had Avas 25  cents. At the lockup he cursed the  oflicers roundly and otherwise  acted as though drunk. Twenty  minutes after the door. AA'as locked  tlio prisoner fell asleep and re-  majued in that condition until 5:30  o'clock when he awoke, and talked  at random for a few moments,  making no reference fco the episode  of the afternoon.  The police AA'ere informed that  during tho morning Hoard said to  Malcolm Ross, a foreman on the  Balfour extension, "I am. going to  kill a man today." While being  locked up he said to the officers,  "I Avish 1 had killed half a dozen  moro of you."  A Million Dollar Mino.  Bakkk Citv, Oregon, October 7.

At the next session of the legislative assembly bills will be introduced that Avhen passed will repeal  all acts that now give lawyers a  dead cinch and special protection,  Lawyers will then be on the same  footing ns other trades and crafts.  9fe f&vibiim.  ,   The   Triuuxr   may   not  knoAV  anything Avhatever about provincial taxation, and if Jay I'. Graves  of .the   Grand   Forks    smelter   is  quoted correctly in -the- press, he  knows a great deal less than The  Tribune.      The   Cascade   Record  slates that Mr. Graves in an  interview at Rossland, said:    "We Avill  " haA'e to'restrict the output of-our  *' mines, because Ave cannot afford  " to pay the provincial government  " a tax of 25 cents a ton on ore that  " returns us a net profit of HO cents  *' a ton.    Smith Curtis was the only  " member of  the legislature that  _" presented the right vjcav of. the  " question when  ib Avas being dis  " cussed   in   the   house."     If  the  ���words quoted above   are the   expressed opinions of Mr. Graves, Mr.  Graves is evidently trying to mislead  the public.    As a matter of  fact, Smith Curtis in discussing the  question stated that the Boundary  district ores   contained  values of  gold and copper aggregating $7.75  a ton, and that   the freight and  treatment   charges    amounted   to  ��   $5.50 a ton.    If this is a statement  of fact, the output of the mines  OAvned by tho syndicate .of. .which  Mr. Graves is manager is taxed the  enormous sum of SIX AND ONE-  HALF CENTS A TON.    To make  it plain to the people of the province, who are alone interested in  the question of provincial taxation,'  th'e owners of the low-grade mines  in Kootenay and Yale will.be called  onto pay, in lieu  of all  taxes on  their mining property, less than ten  cents for each ton of ore mined and  sold.       Surely ." this     will    not  Avork      a      great    hardship     on  mine    owners.     The     low-grade  mine    that    has    an    output    of  1000 tons   every day  during   the  year will bo required to pay the-  province $23,705 a   year in   taxes,  provided the ore is worth  $.%25 a  ton over and above the sums paid  for hauling it to and treating if) at  A smelter.  tJi coal mine with an output of  NELSON MINES AND MINING  Mining Magnates iu Nelson.  J. C. Drewry of Rossland, general  manager of the Canadian Gold  Fields, Limited, Avas in the ciby on  Saturday with several Avell knoAvn  Canadian capitalists. They wero  George Sumner of Montreal, president of the company, J. C. Hodgson  of Montreal, secretary, and R. K.  Hope of Hamilton, a member of the  board of directors. Tho first two  gentlemen are the senior members  of the firm of ..Hodgson, Sumner &  Co., one of the -leading AA'holesale  drygoods concerns in the Dominion,  and all three are heavy shareholders in the Canadian Gold Fields.  This company is rapidly becoming  one of the most extensive mining  syndicates in British Columbia and  its various -ventures ��� to date haA-e  turned but unusually well.  Within the last day or two  Mr.  Drewry was apprised of a most important   strike   on'-.the   Cbmmon-  Avealth group   recently /purchased  for $50,000 from T. G. Procter of  Nelson   and   others.      When   the  Canadian Gold Fields-took hold of  the property a contract was let for  100 feet of sinking:-*  This lias been  progressing   steadily{and   an   ore  body was encountered last   week  which will place the Commonwealth  on a level with the richest mines of  the Kootenay if the body proves to  be   continuous.     Specimens taken  across the face were sent to Nelson,  and on being assayed gave returns  of   20   per   cent   copper   and   170  ounces of silver, over $102 per ton  in all.    The importance of tho discovery can readily be  appreciated.  At present, however, the Sb. Eu-  geue Consolidated at Moyie is the  best property OAvned by the Canadian Gold Fields, aud is easily the  finest concentrating  proposition in  British Columbia.    The pay roll at  the Sb.  Eugene now numbers 320,  of which 100-are employed on development exclusively.     The con-  cenbrator is  turning out 400 tons  daily.

This Avill preclude in future any curtailing of  output such as occurred during  August and September as a result  of the drought. A gravity tram  has been started recently rwhich  conveys the ore from the Moyie  claim to the upper level of the  Lake Shore, Avhence it is dropped  through the ore chutes to the lower  level and remoA'cd by mule tram to  tho mill. Messrs. Summer, Hodgson and Hope spent several days at  Moyie last Aveek and were delighted  wibh the condition of affairs at the  mine. c  Excellent reports'are also to hand  from the sunset group, a Slocan  property bonded some time ago to  the Canadian Gold Fields. Eighteen men have boon at Avork on the  property for several months and it  is showing up well. Development  has been carried on by drifting on  the, load and according to Mr.  Drewoy,-, suflicient ore has been  taken out in the course of this work  to recoup the company for its outlay to date.  Miscellaneous.  Joe llnland has resigned his position as superintendent of the Venus  mine and will be connected Avith a  property in tho St. Mary's district  for the win tor.  The 13. A. C. company of Rossland  has a group of claims adjoining the  Ymir mine on which development  will be carried on this winter. A  compressor plant working on a now  principle has been installed and was  started last Aveek.  Another party of meu Avent out  to the May and Jennie property on  Saturday to strengthen tho creAV  already on the ground. A permanent camp is to be constructed,  cabins erected aud a trail cut to  enable pack horses to reach the  property until the Forty-nine creek  wagon road is opened for teaming.  J'. ,T.

C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  ^"wise Mrs. Wilfrid Francis Brougham���had been engaged to sing  Fides in Meyerbeer's "The Prophet"  " at the coming grand opera season  in New York that prompted the  desire- to seek an interview with  her. That fact, which included the  success of a Calfornia giri, was interesting in itself; but then thn  public, is accustomed to hear of the  successes of  California   girls,.land  Jyeariis more for the 'gossip .which  tells of a nativp daughter's chances  of becoming a titled lady.  ������--..Well, it's true. The handsome,  buxom, good-natured singer may  some day discover tliat she is the  spouse of an English lord. Be-  tvveen;her, husband and the title  and estates there hangs but a thin  spun thread of life of a wealthy  cousin, and it may be snipped at  any time. The present lord Brougham is the third baron, Henry  Charles, baron Brougham aiiiLVaui.  He has but.one son,,a. delicate, boy  of- thirteen, and if the youth should  drop out, tiie title;woiild pass to  the eldest son of the presen t lord's  brother���to wit, the Wilfrid Francis  iBrougham aforesaid, musical dilettante and husband of. an opera  singer. When this happens, and if  it/happens, the lady who has so  often played the grand dame on the  stage will bo the real thing off tho  stage.     The   vision   of > title and  ���wealth and a.coat of arms and a  gallery of celebrities, beginning  with the first Brougham, has not  dazzled   Miss   Graham a   particle.  . She does not* seem to care very  much, about the chances of hobnobbing with the nobility���and to  think .that there -are some, native  'daughters-who would care and that  ��� some of them will never have the  chauce!   This is bow she talks :  "I'm1 just going to sing." That is  what I like ; that is what I want to  do and that is how I came to meet,  my husband. Never heard the  story, did you. I had my first engagement in London with the Carl  Boss Opera Company.. ��� It's gone up  now. My husband-was always fond-  of-music���knows all the.operas.by  heart. We met and married, went  to Paris, where I studied, and then  I continued my stage career, and  here I am. There, my husband will  tell you the rest.'.'  With Salasso and others, Mrs.  Graham-Brougham passed into the  California theater and the husband  of the singer remained behind to  produce the telegrams which announced his wife's latest engagement and to proclaim his gratification thereat.  "I don't suppose my people will  like this thing to come out, and-I  don't know how-it got out. We  have been here since January, and  no one found it out before. You  see, I had money onco and went in  for operas and all that sort of thing,  aud when 1 married a singer there  was the deuce to pay, but what do  I care for that? Now, f suppose,  when this thing is made public they  won't like it, either; but my wife.is  jnnrrtisLT^aiul her al5ility~is being  recognized.- She learned all her  operas from me, or rather with me,  and she is making a name for herself, v  The man who may some day be  lord Brougham takes more interest  in his wife's family connections  than his own.  "Why, she's a Californian, you  know. Her father is the commandant of the Soldiers'JIome at Youht-  yille and her brother is secretary ;to  IT. TO. Huntington," so ho rattled  on, and whether the lady is proud  of the fact that her husband is the  scion of a famous English house, it  is evident that he prides himself  not a little on the fact that his wife  is a native daughter and an opera  singer.

HfJiullock-Webster, chief of  provincial"police, returned yesterday from itossland after looking  up witnesses in criminal cases coming .before the assizes. A large  number of Itossland people have  been summoned to give evidence.  Good minstrel shows are always  popular, and Gorton's New Orleans  minstrels form one of the best burnt  eork combinations that has taken  the road since "the time when Jack  Haverley was iu liis prime and  Billy Emerson's .iokes were new.  They are billed to appear in the  Nelson opera house on October 12th  aud 13 th.  Judge Korin leaves this afternoon  for "Rossland to accompany the golf  team to Spokane where they are to  play a Spokane team tomorrow.  The members of the Canadian team  as arranged at present are: Judge  Forin, captain;-Messrs. Dickson, Mc-  Naughton, Cowan and P. McL.  Forin of Rossland and Dr. Carruthers of Kevelstoke. Several  others are expeeted to accompany  the golfers.  Another case has been added to  the ciiminal list for the assizes. In  Regina vs. Hocking the defendant  was to have had a speedy trial, but  the case will now remain oyer to  the assizes. ��� The charge is bigamy  committed at Moyie. George Bulko,  the lad sent to the reformatory  from Slocan City, is held here pending the arrival of further instructions from the department ��� of  justice.  The Nelson firemen havo a benevolent fund, the existence of which  is not known to the majority,-of  citizens. AN donations received  from parties whose property has  been saved by the brigade or sums  received by the department as a  whole are turned into this fund and  from it members of the brigade are  assisted in sickness or accident. The  proceeds of the Alba Heywood concert" on Wednesday night will go  iuto tho fund, and citizens attending will -support a worthy cause,  outside of witnessing a performance  which is said to be unequaled in  the entertainment line.  RAILROAD AND STEAMBOAT  The New Turntable.  The big turntable for the new  roundhouse will be placed in position today. Tt is seventy feet in  diameter and so mounted that one  hostier can   swing   a. locomotive  around to any of the stalls with  ease. The operation of setting up  the turntable is a delicate one, as  ranch i1 depends on having the  weight properly pivoted. A number of bents for the building are in  position and the work is progressing rapidly. The excavations for  the passenger and freight depots  are under way and the contract for  the latter building will probably be  let today. .,  Stoam Shovel Again^at Work.  The steam shovel is hard at work  in the C. P. R. yards and is gradually removing tho bluff at the foot  of Railway street, the material  from which is now being placed  along the Crow's Nest siding, where  another track is to run. Fifty or  Bixty feet of Vernon street has  been dug out and the only approach  to the depot is by way of the now  extension to Baker street. On Saturday eighty carloads of material  were taken out.  NELSON TENT AND  AWNING  FACTORY  The best equipped establishment in British Columbia for turning out  all kinds of canvas goods.  A; FERLAND & CO,  Tied up Craft.  Among the craft tied up at the  eity wharf yesterday were the Hercules, Halys, Marion, Red Star and  Angerona. The Hercules has recently been equipped' with a search  light and sundry touches of paint,  which give her an exceedingly  smart appearance. She is towing  lime rock for the Trail smelter,  pressure of business having caused  the management to doubls  its standing order for lime rock.  The Halys steamed in yesterday  afternoon with a barge containing  several hundred cords of wood for  THEO tyADSO/f, Proprietor.  Baker Street,, Nelson.  a local dealer. She is a neat little  craft and is getting a liberal share  of the lake business. The Marion  made her regular run to'������Crawford  bay returning in the evening. The"  trip ���with regular allowances for  landings-takes'-eight hours. The  craft is comfortably fitted-rip for  passengers and her owners have  consulted the convenience of the  public iii arranging her hour of departure at 8 a.m. The Red Star is  the Ontario Powder Company's  boat, and is used largely foi' carrying powder to lake, points. The  Angerona belongs to captain Bush  and lias been tied up here since the  big camps on the Balfour extension  closed down. She is a speedy craft  and came to Kootenay lake some  years ago from the coast wifch an  alleged ��� record in the Chinese  smuggling line.  , ���  Troup's New Launch.  The work of setting up captain  J.W. Troup's new launch has been  commenced afc Hale's boathouse  and the steel frame is now in position. A feature of the frame is  that every third or fourth rib is  continued six or eight feet above  the gunwale to support a cabin or  canopy as may be.desired, thus securing the maximum degree of  rigidity with, the minimum of  weight. In" size and strength the  craft will excel,1 anything, ever attempted in the launch line in the  interior of the province.  WORK ON THE REFERENDUM  A Ten-Stamp Mill.  J. E. Saucier of Rossland, one of  the largest holders . of Referendum  shares, was in the city yesterday  and confirmed the report as to the  recommencement of work on the  Referendum. The Forty-nine creek  wagon road will be continued past  the May arid,,Jennie group to the  Referendum, the latter company  having contributed $500 tp the  cost.' The company has a ten-  stamp mill bought and paid for and  the plant will be delivered on the  ground and set1; up as soon as the  new road affords transportation  facilities. Since" the present company took over the group about  $7000 has beeirsexpended in development and a large amount -of  medium grade'free milling ore is on  the dump and blocked out in the  workings. Mr. Saucier states that  the capacity of,i the mill will probably be increased by ten additional  stamps at once. The company is  assured that they have a first-class  property in the Referendum and  will proceed without delay to place  it on a productive basis.  BUSINESS   MENTION.
