NELSON MINES AND MINING  Valparaiso Mine Excursion.  An excursion from Nelson to the  Valparaiso mine is on the cards for  / the near future, Captain Angus  ���v'ampbell,���of-the-tug���HerculcSj-is  one of the large stock owners in the  property and it is understood he  will take the party up ou his craft.  A similar excursion was run last  week from Kaslo, where most of  the stock issued, to date is held.  Joseph Warner, one of the principal  owners, is in the city for a few days.  The stockholders meet at Kaslo  next week to authorize the commencement of the work for the  winter on an extensive scale. The  crew is to be increased to fourteen  and extensive development done.  No shipping beyond sample consignments is contemplated. The Valparaiso ledge is stated to be forty  feet wide carrying values all across  and with a paystreak of clean shipping ore six to seven feet in width.  Resuming Work.  ���-. Several properties at Ymir have  resumed work recently. The Sum-  mit-Ymir Company has recommenced work on the Summit claim,  about two'iuiles north of the Ymir  mine, on .the north fork of AVild  Horse creek. The British Lion Gold  Miriing'Syndicate have also resumed  work on the Big Four group on  Porcupine creek. The tunnel which  , is being ruii to tap the vein is  within about 30 feet of it. .  The Simcoe Mining & Development Company has let a contract  i'or the completion of the crosscut  tunnel, which is in some 290 feet.  The face of the tunnel is in quartz  which is becoming more mineralized as the work progresses.  The Shiloh claim, recently sold to  AT. Harris of Spokane, representing  a syndicate of Spokane capitalists,  is being developed with very prom  ising results. The property lies between Wild Horse and Bear creeks,  and overlooks the town about a  mile away. It is traversed by an  immense vein of quartz, which in  some places outcrop with a width  of about 00 feet. A shaft is being  sunk in this vein and has attained  the depth-of-about-50 feet���follow-  ing a paystreak of about four feet."  The ore from this streak carries  considerable galena and copper.  The situation of the property is  such that the cost of Avorking would  be remarkably low.  Confirmation of Sunset Strike.  J. C. Drewry of Rossland was in  the city yesterday en route to  Crawford Bay, where he will go  over the'.Commonwealth group. A  discovery of unusually good ore  was reported from this property  recently and Mr. Drewry is going in  to ascertain the exact particulars.  The big strike on the Sunset property in the Slocan is confirmed and  at last report the crew were still  working in the bonanza ore. Mr.  Drewry will visit AVhitewater before returning home.  Boundary Creek Mines.  The local syndicate which owns  the Tarn O'Shanter claim and other  properties in Deadwood camp,  Boundary creek, has under consideration a proposition to bond the  Tarn O'Shanter at a good figure.  Work is being done on the claim  now and the property is turning  out well.   Miscellaneous.  T. G. Blackstock.-of Toronto, manager of the Gooderham-Blaekstock  syndicate's interests in British Co-  lumb'ia was in the ciby last night.  A. H. Gracey, engineer for the  Imperial Development Syndicate,  has several fine samples of ore from  a Lardo property under bond to  the syndicate. The specimens are  thickly studded with free gold and  are as handsome as anything in  the district in the shape of gold  ore. The group from which they  are taken is said to be turning out  remarkably rich.  George Gurd of this city has taken  an option on the Kaslo group on  Cody creek, and has several men at  work on the claims. If they prove  satisfactory a Toronto syndicate  will take up the property.  George A. Hunter who has arrived home from a trip through the  Cariboo country, states that mining  matters are quiet in the Barkerville district, but that about Quesnelle Forks and Horse Fly a number  of big propositions are preparing to  open up with next season's water.  .

Iat4i;  BOERS DECEIVED BY KRUGER  TRUSTED" IN  GOD,  BUT LIED TO  HIS   GENERALS.  Interesting  Story  From  an   Englisii  Telegrapher, Employed by the  Transvaalers.  London, October 12.���The Pretoria correspondent of the Daily  Mail sends the following interesting  dispatch : "From an English telegraphist who was in control of  things for the Transvaal, 1 learn  that there was a systematic tampering with all telegrams during  the war in order to misrepresent  operations -in��� favor-of- tlie-Boers.-  He says Mr. Kruger was constantly  wiring to the commanders inquiries  as to how many of the British had  been killed, and that general  Cronje, after the fight at Magersfontein, wired Mr. Kruger that he  had counted many thousand British  dead on the battlefield.  "Early in the campaign commandant-general Joubert appealed to  Mr. Kruger to stop the Boers looting, but he received no reply. Later  on he wired from Colenso adAising  the president to sue for peace. Mr.  Kruger replied: 'Have you lost all  faith in God? On another occasion  when the Boers were suffering severe reverses Mr. Kruger wired to  all the generals that ten thousand  men were coming to their assistance from the Cape.".  Kruger Will Land in Holland.  Paris, October 11.���It is semiofficially denied here that the  French government has been approached on the subject of the suggested disembarkation of former  president Kruger at Marseilles,  whence he could cross. France to  The Hague. Ou the contrary, it is  added, Mr. Kruger is expected to  land directly iii Holland.  Horses Bring Good Prices.  London, October .11.���Some hunters and harness horses from Hollo-  way's farm, New Ilochelle, New  York, were sold at auction here today and fetched 2400 guineas. Ben  Bolt was sold for 310 guineas, Hereford for 200 guineas and the Dude  for 160 guineas.  Count Waldersee will leave Tien-  Tsin tomorrow for Pekin.  In acknowledgment of the presentation- of the gold medal won by  British'Columbia in,the state exhibit of minerals! W..-.H. Dowsing  of Nelson, who received the medal  for the province^' inhde a .reply of  interest oii Tuesday * night. Mr.  Dowsing said:  "In responding to, yqur courteous  remarks regarding our exhibit from  British Columbia', and in accepting  the grand prize ��� for' the province,  the exhibitors from the various districts and for myself, I beg first of  all to thank you-as"manager of this  exposition and your superintendent  of the mineral department for the  uniform good fellowship displayed,  the thoughtful provision made for  our entertainment and. for the opportunity . afforded    of    showing  something   of ' the   great  variety,  abundance and value of our ores to  those who have never before studied  the mineral resources of our country.   Speaking for all the exhibitions from jour province, I wish to  say that while we' are' aware that  our laurels were by no means light-  won in competition against no less  than four of your best mineral producing states, we'feel that a great  sense of fairriess':.igoverned  the decision of your judges.  We feel that"  we have great reason to be proud  of   our   success,' and' believe" the  awards were most-properly made.  "Speaking for-myself, while sensible of the excellence of the other  displays, and while f had - hoped to  capture the prize for. the best district exhibit, I quite agree with the  decision of,the judges in*, awarding  -that medal toob.^steeined.":friends_  from Rossland, nor do I'wish them  to forget that'they, won their prize  in competition against several extraordinary displays. ��� Theirs is all  the greater victory from this  fact.  None can say, who have seen these  exhibits, that they had no competition, for wasinot the Silvery Slocan,  Ymir, Ainsworth, Nelson and your  own Index each of unusual merit?  "While Nelson would have been  proud to secure the district first  pri/.e, we are quite content for the  time being at least, with the second  award. Next year we hope to be  with you again, and we shall do  our best to excel, if possible, the  exhibits made this year."  Killed by a .Falling Tree.  David McGee was killed yester-  day-at-W-inslow-s-mill_on_the-SIo--  can branch of the C. P. R. nine miles  this side of Lemon creek. McGee  was cutting timber for the mill  when a tree fell on him, causing  death. The news was brought to  Nelson yesterdey afternoon by au  employee of the mill, who desired  to secure a burial permit. He could  give little or no information as to  the fatality, and the coroner, Dr.  Arthur, leaves for the camp this  'morning to hold "an inquest. The  remains will be brought to Nelson  this evening. ' They will be embalmed and shipped to Beverly,  Ontario, where the deceased man's  people reside.  PRAISES AMERICAN" POLICY  Interview With American Minister.  Washington, October 11.���Andrew D. White, the American ambassador to Germany, had conferences with the president and with  secretary Hay today preparatory  to returning to his post in Berlin  next week. Mr, White, in an interview, said that having,been so long  absent from-.-Berlin,-he could not  give the latest phase there regarding the Chinese matter, .but that  when he left it was felt by some of  the brightest people that he met  that the course pursued by the  United States was wiser than that  adopted by the European powers.  One of the longest headed men in  the diplomatic corps had congratulated him on the fact that  while the other powers almost  universally had lost hope aud were  ready to proceed at once to the  most      extreme      measures      on  the    supposition   that    the   diplomatic corps in   Pekin and  indeed  tho whole foreign population there  had been murdered, the American  government  had been patient and  wise, aud it was due to this attitude  that the United  States  had been  l-he first to communicate with Pekin  and was  really  the  power  which  saved the foreigners there.    Events  since then, Mr. White pointed out,  have justified completely this view.  To the quotations from a hostile  element in the German press in the  morning    papers   Mr.   White   attributed   no    special   importance,  saying the papers quoted had been  the most virulent enemies of the  United States throughout the Spanish war and at all times since.   The  ambassador expressed the opinion  that in spite   of some friction  between the various powers an ultimate fair undei standing concerning  China was altogether probable.  TEXT OF BEPLT TO FUME'S ITE  The  Washington  Government  Would  Negotiate  at  Once.  Be   Pleased   to  . SSI  Will Open, on Tuesday.  The fall assizes will open here on  Tuesday next, the attorney general  having    declined    to    make   any  change of date even for the civil  cases.    It is anticipated that several cases will not be entered on  the   civil list which would otherwise have come up.    The criminal  cases will come up on the opening  of court and it is estimated, that  they will take fully a week, particularly as next Thursday being a  legal holiday for Thanksgiving will  necessitate an extra day,     SS.  A.  McLean,  deputy attorney-general,  will attend the assize and conduct  the crown prosecutions.     It- is reported that   Mr. justice Walkeni  will preside on the" bench.  Mines to be Opened.  Pittsburg, October 11.���The  Pittsburg &-Buffalo.Coal Company  has opened one mine near Gannan-  burg and is arranging for the opening of two more in the same place  today. The company has let contracts i'or mining machinery aggregating over $500,000.  MANILA COURTS ARE ROTTEN  "JUDGES  AND JUSTICES* ARE.IN  OFFICE FOR WHAT'S IN IT.  The   Commission   Is Disgusted  With  Conditions   and  Will Replace  Oflicers With Americana.  Manila, October 0.���Via Hong  Kong, October II.���The administration of Manila's civil courts by  Filipino magistrates, which has  long been scandalous, is now much  worse than than ever and has  been brought to the commission's  attention with requests for rectification. The courts are composed  of four justices of the peace and"  four primary courts. The magistrates are all Filipinos and developments have proved that the incumbents are utter failures as administrators of justice. Chargeshave been  filed aiid evidence is in the bauds of  tho authorities which it is claimed  -will show that the magistrates  have been guilty of the grossest  corruption and malfeasance in  office. One magistrate was recently  suspended on suspicion of criminal  abuse of power and attempt to defraud. The monthly collection of  lines of four>native justices is estimated at $(3000. The amount collected by the primary courts for  the same period, is much greater.  The eight magistrates persistently  ignore the regulations established  by the authorities for the supervision of commitments and the accountability of-moneys. They deposit less than a hundred dollars  monthly and are alleged to appropriate the balance of their collections.  It is further claimed .that the  magistrates are in collusion with  the native police in compromising  offences on the basis of "cash for  freedom" and that in many instances the magistrates committed  men to jail over a j'ear without  trial.  Serious charges of favoritism  havo lately been made against the  civil branch of Manila's supreme  court. Tho members of the commission are disgusted with the condition of the courts and intend to  substitute honest Americans from  the United States for the native  magistrates.  PUNISHMENT OF THE GUILTY THE PARAMOUNT ISSUE'  WASHiNGTON.October 11.���There-  ply of the state department to the  French note relative to the basis of  Chinese negotiations was made public late today.   It reads as follows,  The secretary of state to the French  charge d'affaires:   The government  of the United States agrees with  that of France in recognizing as the  object to be obtained from the government of China appropriate reparation for the past and  substantial guarantees for the future. The  president perceives in the basis  of  negotiation forwarded in the memorandum of October 4th the spirit  that has animated the declarations  heretofore made by all the .powers  interested and would be pleased to  see the negotiations begun immediately upon the usual verification of  credentials.   It may be convenient  to enumerate" the   clauses of the  memorandum and to add some observations dictated by .the. attitude  of the United States in the present  circumstances: .  1. The punishment of the guilty  parties who may be designated,by  the representatives of the powers  at Pekin. The Chinese government  has already indicated its intention  to punish a number of those responsible for the recent disorders.  The representatives of the powersc  at Pekin may suggest additions to  that list when negotiations, are ^entered upon. . .  2. The continuance of the interdiction against the importation, of  arms. " It is understood* that this  ihterdiction-is.to be'pe'rmanent and  its" duration and details, of-its regulation seem a proper subject of discussion by the negotiators.   .  3. Equitable indemnities for gov-  ���^l  *- _jft  rnments, corporations and private. *���-.-<.'I  individuals. This is an object desired by all the powers. The ^Russian government has suggested that  in case of protracted divergence ot��i^J_\  views this matter might be cohtf "'"  mended to the consideration of the  international court of arbitration" :'.?  of The Hague. The president thinks *$v  this suggestion worthy the atten- ~~��  tion of the powers. '   ���..   .-<U  4. The organization in Pekin of a-xT f  permanent guard for the legations.-.

The dismantling of the forts  at Taku. ��� The president reserves -*_jj!  the expression of his "opinion "as to. ,~7;\  this measure pending the receipt of J*.'":  further information * in regard "to, r?  the situation in China.

The Final Rehearsal.  The final dress rehearsal for the  production of Gilbert & Sullivan's  tuneful opera "Mikado" by the  Nelson amateurs took place last  night at the opera house and was  most satisfactory. All the principals, the full chorus and the complete orchestra were present and  the opera was gone through with  from start to finish as ifc will be  produced before an audience on  Monday next. In tackling tho  "Mikado" the Nelson operatic  society   have  undertaken  a  much  more extensive    proposition   than  "Pinafore," their first effort. By  dint of hard work on the part of  the management and assiduous  practice by chorus and orchestra,  together with exceptionally good  fortune in securing talented principals, the society has reached a  degree of excellence in the "Mikado"  which cannot fail to surprise and  delight the citizens who patronize  the opera house next week. The  "Mikado" will be ��� costumed and  staged with a taste, skill and lavish-  ness which adds very materially to  its interest. The costumes are  faithfully modeled- after Japanese  designs, and permit of a striking  arrangement of colors, while the  scenery is the most elaborate and  effective ever placed on a Nelson  stage.          Couldn't Stand the Loss.  Philadelphia, October 11.���Edward Eyre, president of the Ard-  more Hardware Company, committed suicide today by shootiug in  the stable at his home at Ardmore.  He left a note saying he had been  robbed of $17,000 -by his partner  and that a suit to recover the  money had been decided against  him. He leaves a widow and family.  One of his sous is chief clerk to  general MacArthur in the Philippines.    He was 50 years of age.  ...       Racing in England.

The mills at Buffalo and Milwaukee are reported to have been  leased to their original owners, and  this plan, it is said, will be adopted  with the mills at Syracuse, Superior, Dnlutli and other places.  Trouble Feared in South China.  Berlin, October II.���According  to a dispatch received by the German navy league, the situation in  south China is exceedingly critical.  The dispatch says that Chang Weill  Hodg, who advised the dowager  empress to enroll the Boxers  in tho army, has been  appointed governor of the new  Chinese capital San Fu. lt is further asserted that many Chinese  have been decapitated at Chin  Kiang, provinco of Kiang Su, and  that general Shi Kai has increased  his army to 40,000.  ��� ��� v ������- # Vi\"��� :*';;���*'^y^<i^r^'A*mVT?m " 2  T1TR TRrtimEV N'ELSON .a.CPRTDAY OCTOBER 12.1900  HUDSON'S HAY  COMPANY. ���  INCORPORATED 1670.

Some of  them may bo-good mine managers,  but none of them"~are good politicians.      .  -Two. Prosperous Towns.  Real estate in Phoenix and Moyie,  two towns that are dependent entirely on mining, is increasing in  value, and selling readily. A year  ago Bruce Crdddick _ and James  Dawson, both old-time business men  of Nelson, but now" of Trail, made  investments at Phoenix, and' today  their holdings are worth 100 per  cent advance.

The New Westminster Columbian  says "that Canada* presents a ter-  " rible    indictment    against    the  " Laurier government."    It is just  such rot as the above that makes  people tired of newspapers that are  organs of political parties.   Canada  has been fairly prosperous under  the.: Laurier government, and  the  affairs   of   the.---government,  have*  been carried on much the same as.  they were when the Conservati ves  were in power,and much the same  as they would be carried on were the  Conservati ves io gain power, at the  coming: election.  Liberal politicians  are not all above reproach, in.or out  of   office;    neither    are   the   Conservatives.  Spokane Won.  The team of.

FORREST FRIGHTENED HIM  Roland Reed'ti First Venture.  Roland Reed's manager, E. B.  J 1 elc, has a. number of stories about  liis star, and Mr. .lack, by the way,  is a son of the veteran John Jack.  "Roland, like most actors," said  Mr. Jack the other day, "had his  0 little slips.and contretemps, in the  early days, and one.of the most  amusing occurred'. when he was  quite a stripling', acting at John  "Drew's Arch street theatre in Philadelphia. Edwin Forrest was then  playing a starring engagement in  his classical repertory. He was notoriously severe and exacting with  beginners, but he seemed- to take  kindly to Roland, who was also the  call boy of tho thoatro. One even-,  iug the great actor called young  Reed into his dressing room and  - said:  " 'Now my lad I'm going to make  au actor of you, and I think you've  got the stuff in you. "Richelieu"  will be tomorrow night's bill, and I  sliall cast you for Francois. You  must take great pains, as the part  is an important.one.'  "Roland was in the seventh heaven ot delight at this, as he had  never yet played so important a  part. It will be remembered -that  after Richelieu's great soliloquy  Francois rushes in and the cardinal  exclaims: "The dispatch boy! Life  ���death,' in breathless excitement.  '?At this supreme moment Forrest  gave a tremendously grim aud pro-.  longed.'IIa' which so frightened  the young^actor that-he fell  on his  ." knees mute. Forrest repeated the  lines, but Francois*was -still dumb,  cfipkilYg'With nervous excitement.  Again Forest demanded the . dispatch, but instead of uttering, the  lengthy and important speech K regarding the conspiracy all .poor  Roland could stammer out was:  "I���I���haven't got it.' Forrest  growled out inaudibly: 'Oh, d���u  vou. You're ruined.' Roland got  off the stage as best he could. He  liid himself. Jn the- dressing-room  and cried like a child.  "Before, the perform!'uce on   the-  ' next night Forrest sent. for Reed,  who obeyed the summons tremblingly, but to his intense relief the  veteran said to him, in gentle and  kindly fashion : 'Come here my  boy. Why, how nervous .you are.  You'll  be nil  right tonight, hey?'  - 'Air. Forrest,' said Roland, 'it was  - that dreadful "Ha!" You didn't do  it at rehearsal.'. At this the old  tragedian laughed outright. The  second performance of 'Richelieu'  found Roland all right in his lines.  . .But he says that the Forrest "Ha!'  will resound in his ears to his dying  day." . ...  ..Gladstone's Mistake.'  Toronto Telegram.  To Gladstone is due the glory of  winning great battles for the Liberal party of England, and to Gladstone is also due the odium of leaving the Liberal party of England in  such a position that it can win no  great battles on its own account,  ��� It was an evil day for Liberalism,  and in a sense for England, when  Gladstone estranged Chamberlain  by his. efforts to pluck the rose of  success from the thorns and briars  of the Irish question. The Salisbury government is no friend to.  reform in the United Kingdom. It  would, have been better perhaps  for England and better for the empire, if .Gladstone had steered clear.  . of home rule and had been succeeded by;Chamberlain as the rightful  leader of a -Liberal: party. pledged  to imperialism abroad and to progressive legislation at home.  Silver: Sixty-Four Centa.  The price of silver has been vising  for some time past, and is now  about 01 cents in New York, the  highest point it has touched since  February, 1897. The advance has  been about Sh cents an ounce since  the opening of the year. It does  not appear to be in any way a speculative anoyement,. but it is.rather  the result of a steady demand for  the metal. We haye heretofore referred to the large;shipments to  the east/this, year,, and we find, that  the quantity sent to China has not  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   eOLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on.Skaguay, tJ. S.,  Atlin, B. C��� and Dawson City, N. W. T.  decreased in consequence of the  troubles there, but has rathei' increased. The foreign forces in  China are making payments of some  amount, and in the ports which are  open the Chinese merchants prefer  silver to goods in trade. In India  the-gpvernraent has been a large  purchaser,J;he; necessities- of trade  compelling it- to coin silver -rupees  for circulation. Outside of the  Eastern demand the sales in Europe,  chiefly for industrial purposes, have  been good. The large consumption  of the metal has naturally tended  to support prices, and a further  moderate rise is probable.  Fought on a Coach Roof.  On the top of a Chicago & Alton  passenger; train, moving at, the rate  of forty miles an hour, William  Burke of St*. Louis, aud an unknown  man, fought a duel to the death  recently. The two mon were beat-  ing,their way to Chicago. Aftei1  the train left East St. Louis the  stranger drew a revolver and demanded Burke's money. Burke refused to comply with the request  and grappled with his antagonist.  During the struggle which followed  the unknown man shot Burke in  the side, but the latter finally managed to push him from the top of  the coach. He was picked ui"> with  his skull crushed in and otherwise  horribly injured and barely alive.  Burke will recover.  Established in Nelson in 1890.

Within three  months the man whose name it is  has made the rulers of every European monarchy tremble. He has  made president McKiniey surround  himself-with armed guards. It is  believed he conceived the plan  which resulted in the assassination'  of king_Humbert of Italy.  Boynich, who wrote the "Gadfly,"  might have-had a man of Malates-  ta's nature in his mind for his hero  ���Arthur Cesare. Such a character  might have walked from the pages  of one of-Marion Crawford's weird  novels of Italian intrigue, life and  death.   Read his. record:  Italy's police believe that he has  been at the bottom of every anarchist scheme-conceived in Italy for  twenty years.- Russia's police start  w.hen,jthey hear his name. Scotland  Yard has for mouths devoted  its keenest talent to-watching him.  There is not a police station in Germany that would not spring into  activity should, ho cross the boundary line. From France Coehefort  has sent detectives into England���  these funny little French detectives  ���to wateh him closely. In the  United States Malatesta's name.has_  "become a bugaboo to chief Wilkie  and his secret service men.  Who is Malatesta ?  He is merely a little Italian, ',5  feet 0 inches tall, who looks stumpy  because he weighs 108 pounds. His  complexion is swarthy, his eyes are  dark aud deep.-set, his expression is  alert. The alertness is not that of  the clever business man, but the  furtive look of the man who is  hunted. lie wears a long, sharply  pointed black beard.  On September lst,M889; Malatesta  first landed in New York.. His given  name is Enrico, and'previous to his  arrival in London he had been in  exile on the Isla Salvadore, near  Sicily. A group of anarchists in.  Paterson, assisted by anarchistic  capital from Hoboken, New Jersey,  and Barre, Vermont���both hotbeds  of anarchy���had started the newspaper called La Questione Sociale.  It needed an editor.     '  That they sent an expedition to  this little island there is no doubt.  They rescued Malatesta and landed,  him in New York. For some reason  the authorities took no action, although he had three times been  under sentence of death for fomenting rebellion in South American  states.   . '  When Malatesta went to the  United States the police of Europe  breathed easier, because' he had  come to be considered the stormy  petrel of political crime.  Ten . months ago he went to  Loudon.  Since then king Humbert has  been killed, the prince of Wales  has beeu fired at, two attempts'  have been made upon the life of  the .shah-.of Persia, a serious plot  against president McKiniey.is supposed to hare been discovered, em-  We make every effort  wishes of our customers.  to know and meet the  9  Our assortment is larger than ever before, and /,  the newest designs.are more attractive.
