 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  .-n-L  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH TEAR  NELSON:  SATURDAY MOKNTOG OCTOBER 13  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  MINING AND MILLM DEVELOPMENT  The Kettle River Country and What Is Being Accomplished   There.  MINING   STOCK  QUOTATIONS.  A TERRITORY RICH IN MINERAL FAST FORGING AHEAD  The Kettle River country and its  ���lOrisibilities   are  topics  which  in-  irti'ost everyone who desires to see  ���au extension of British Columbia's  mining fields.   The proposition has  a special interest for Nelsonites, inasmuch as the country will be a  large purchaser from' local wholesalers when its mineral properties  reach a more advanced stage.   Attention has already been  drawn to  the desirability of opening the Fire  Valley road via whicli shipments  from this point can reach the heart  of the  Kettle  river  district more  expeditiously and cheaper than by  any other route.     In some measure  t.he country has been a disappointment this year.    Great things were  expected-to follow* the rush of the  early spring, but these hopes were  only  partially   realized*.     A  large  number of men went in  and many  <:laims were staked,  but  the prospectors as a rule were not in a position to work their locations  and  a  large number came out intending to  go iu again next spring with a stake  .���md     develop     their     properties.  Enough work has been done, how-  over, to demonstrate that the country is one0 of remarkable promise.  Those who are familiar with  the  .. facts have uo hesitation in predicting a bright future for  the  Kettle  River district.  Robert Shiell, one of the pioneers  of'the   Kettle   River   country,  is  /^pendiug a few days in Nelson on  ~" business, and   discusses   the prospects of the district in an interest-  -vv. ii��g-*veh��.-.'-.'Siuce;hig .last visit-to .the  city comparatively   few  important  changes have eventuated, but there  -  are indications of substantial  progress withal.    Among these is  the  .sale of the Monashee mine by Mclntyre and Lisle  to Dunsmuir  and  Rithet of Victoria.    The property  is situated on the mountain of the  same   name  about 27   miles from  Vernon, from which point a good  wagon road was constructed some  time ago. The Monashee is in every  sense a pioneer, having been staked  20 years ago and crown granted  about   14 years   since.   It   has   a  .strong continuous ledge averaging  $10 to $15 in free milling ore on the  eastern claims of the group, and almost any amount on the western  end, where the ledge carries free  gold.   An old fashioned  mill was  placed on the group some time ago,  ���and=thi.3=has=proved==one=-of-H;he=  greatest drawbacks to   the   prop-'  perty, as the plant would uot save  values. The owners have planned an  extensive program of work, including  ;a modern stamp mill.   The Monashee is regarded as a coming property. Active operations will probably not be commenced j till spring.  The   claims   owned   by   George  Doyle,   formerly   of    Nelson,   are  three miles north of the Monashee,  and are looking particularly well.  He has a strong lead of amenical  iron with two feet of solid ore.   An  assay from the group made here on  Wednesday last gave   returns of  $101.   The work to date has been  for assessment purposes and  confined largely to the surface.  The Olds property, owned by the  Olds brothers and Page, is fairly  well known. They have five claims  oh which the lead is opened up for  almost the full length of two  claims. There are three parallel  ledges and an average assay for  the center 500 feet on all three is  $30. An expert recently visited the  property and took samples from  various points on the ledges,<from  which, he secured an average of $15.  The Olds brothers recently returned  from Eugland and have resumed  .work on the claims! They intend  sinking on the central lead and will  .continue operations all winter.  Fred ''Williamson' and Albert  Stanfield have a group called the  Eureka, from which some remarkable assays have been obtained.  They have done considerable work  on the property and are now driving a 60-foot crosscut tunnel. The  values are found in tellurium, and  assays have run as high as $320.  The Shiell brother* are working  the Ballarat claim, one of the few  copper propositions in the district.  Their work has been largely on the  surface, but enough has been done  to indicate that the lead, now four  feet wide, improves steadily iu  width and richness with depth.  The coal properties of the district haA-e not been exploited to  any great extent as yet, but further  developments may be announced  shortly. The Kettle river and its  affluents contain hundreds of tons  of float, and the coal is a lirst-class  steam product which will eventually be of great value for domestic  use.  One of the disadvantages under  wliich the prospectors labor at the  present time arises ont of the arrangements of mining districts. At  one point a radius may be drawn of  a mile, in which the Vernon, Kettle  River and Arrow Lake districts all  enter. A prospector may locate a  few claims and be compelled, in order to record or look up previous  records, to travel as far as Greenwood, a distance of almost 200  miles. The outlay in cash and time  thus necessitated is a large item  and works a. hardship. Tho solution is to form a new division, with  a recorder's office at a central point.  This step will doubtless be taken  when the business of tho district  assumes sufficient magnitude to  warrant action.

The completion of the Molly  Gibson tramway has been delayed  somewhat through waiting for rope  to complete tiie work. Tt is estimated by the management that tho  .trarn wilKbe-joperatingJn a^.month.  Meanwhile work is being proceeded  with steadily in the mine. A. crosscut tunnel has been started at a  point 210 feet below the fourth  level. This will give a maximum  depth of 1100 feet. The vein  quartets across the hill and when  the tunnel crosscuts the lead drifting right and left will be started.  The company figure on starting  regular shipments at an early date  to the Hall Mines smelter and expect to ship 800 to 500 tons of ore  monthly. The Molly Gibson will  pay a dividend next spring.  To Visit Their Mines.  .T. A. Macdonald and F. W. Rolt  of Rossland were in the city last  night en route to Crawford Bay  where they will go over the London  Consolidated and Richelieu prop-  =ertiesfof-whieh=companies=Mri=Mac-=  douald is an officer. Mr. Rolt is  actively identified with the Tamarac  mine at Ymir, which is preparing  to enter the active stage of shipping.  He anticipates the tramway now  under construction at Nelson will  be complete and in operation by  the first of the year, when the  Tamarac will commence shipping to  thecyanide worksatSilica. Thecrew  at the property will be largely increased when shipping is inaugurated, the present crew being  employed on development exclusively.  The Great Britain Group.  ' D. D. Birks of Lardo is in the  city on his way home after a visit  to Rossland. Since his last trip  through Nelson Mr. Birks states  that matter's have been progressing  satisfactorily at the Great Britain  group on the dividebetween Meadow  and Cooper creeks;. which he has  under bond. The cabins have been  completed and the seven-mile trail  connecting with the, main trail to  the lake is practically finished, thus  making access easy to the property.  Development work is to be started  at once. "A crew of nine men is at  work, and operations will be continued all winter.  Stick to Their Dutch.  Cape Town, October 12.���The  South African league today passed  a resolution in favor of a preferential tariff on British manufactures and adopted a resolution  adverse to the Dutch language  being abandoned, which was a suggestion of Cecil Rhodes. Sir Alfred  Milner, the British high commis-  Bioner, has gone to Bloemfontein.  PROMINENT U. S. OFFICIALS DOWN  WITH THE DISEASE.  One    Hundred * and    Thirteen    New  Gases   Reported   at   Havana  Since October 1st;,  Havana, October 12.���One hundred aud thirteen new cases of  yellow fever have been officially reported since October 1st. There is  uo longer any doubt that the di Please has attacked - major Peterson,  chief commissary, and Frank Ilayr,  geueral, manager of the^Hava��.*v-  branch of the North American  Trust Company, who were taken ill  yesterday. Miss Natalie Brown, a  stenographer in the employ of  the Trust compauy, is also  down   with   the   disease.  Four hundred and twenty-eight  Spanish immigrants are in quarantine here owing to the existence of  smallpox in the vessel on which  they arrived.  Withdrawn Today.  Montreal, October 12.���The C.  P. R. limited train which has been  running between this city and Vancouver during the past summer,  will be withdrawn tomorrow.  .Travel by this train was phenomenally large.  A COLF CLUB FOR NELSON  a Is Being Agitated.  An organization for the purpose  of fostering interest in the ancient  and honorable game of golf will  probably be instituted in Nelson  this fall. In event of it being considered advisable to postpone organization, the proposition will be  gone into next spring.�� This point  will be determined when the local  enthusiasts meet to discuss the  matter thoroughly.  Judge Forin is one of the leading  spirits in the movement, and in regard to the matter he says: "A  number of citizens have spoken to  me about organizing a golf club  and I am convinced that it would  be popular. There are several old  players in the eity and many others  who seem to be anxious to go in  for the pastinie. I find we can lay  out a first-class six-hole course, on  the flats. The'visit of the British  Columbia team to. Spokane, where  we were hospitably treated, has  added an impetus to the proposal  and I hope to see it take shape in  the hear future. ._ ,  The -flats along the city front  from the Nelson Ice Company's slip  west will afford a splendid course.  There are marshes,.sand pits, embankments and other obstacles  which the golfer delights to overcome, and the additional advantage that any point in the course  could be reached from the center of  the city in a few minutes.  Berlin, October 12.���The proposal of the Russian government that  in case of a protracted, divergence  of views regarding equitable indemnities, tho matter.might bo commended to the consideration of the  international court oi.' arbitration  at The Hague, is  regarded as the  most important development in the  Chinese  situation*.      Nothing   was  known publicly in Fiiirope concerning it prior to the publication of  president McKinley's answer to the  note of M.  Deleasse. . Most of the  papers comment uhsympathetically  upon   the   suggestion.       Germany  looks upon the report of the death  of the empress dowager" as a new  Chiuese_intrigue,     lt is* supposed  that;she intends to disappear temporarily   "in     order      to     escape  responsibility      for       the ���    misdeeds     of     high ��   officials,     and  perhaps     to   ' prepare  -  another  anti-foreign   movement.      A high  official of the foreign office asserted  today   that a telegram  had been  sent to the Chinese government demanding direct information as to  whether  the  empress   dowager  is  dead.   No reply has been  received  and the fpreigu-.office   draws the  conclusion that the Chinese government is not kept'informed as to the  plans of the Sze Hsiah.   ' The German foreign ��� office js hot satisfied  with the list of  culpables  supplied  by the Chinese government.,    "The  list is notoriously -incomplete," said  an influential official today, "as it  ^oinits atleas^a schre.of .prominent  persons who'were-active leaders'.-in'  the massacre of'foreigners." .  "This is borne out by all the legations and by -the consular reports  from China. It is also borne out  by Mr. Conger's statement. Germany, however, is not disposed to  insist upon the punishment of all  the guilty. What she demands is  that an example be made of persons of high rank in order to show  the Chinese strikingly and convincingly that the powers have enforced a severe expiation of misdeeds and to teach a wholesome  and lasting lesson, the lesson that  the lives and property of foreigners  must be safe in China."  a verdict of accidental death. Dr.  Arthur returned from the scene of  the fatality last night, and the  body was brought in to be shipped  east.  When the death was reported  the coroner ���* was informed that a  tree had fallen on McGee, and no  apparent reason Avas given, hence  the inquest. A "jury was .empanelled on the ground and the evidence of eye-witnesses taken. It  eventuated that one tree had been  knocked partially down in felling  another and had rested in a crotch  of a third. McGee was a teamster  and had driven his wagon to a  point where the balance of the men  were working and halted under the  leaning tree, which looked quite se-~  cure. -Apparently the animals detected the tree falling, for they  ���jumped from beneath it, and as  McGee moved to quiet them the  tree came -.down, striking him on  the top of the skull and causing injuries from which he died in a few  minutes. Two other men only escaped by jumping quickly to one  side.  The late David McGee was 83  years old and came west from Artemisia, Grey county, Ontario, where  he leaves a wife and three small  children. He was a member of the  Canadian Order of Foresters.  MaefflLL OPENS THE CA1PAM  Addressed   the   Citizens   of Greenwood  on   Thursday  Evening.  ALSO EXPRESSED HIS VIEWS TO THE PEOPLE OF MIDWAY  NO SETTLEMENT PROBABLE  TEN   PER   CENT  INCREASE   NOT  ALTOGETHER   SATISFACTORY.  Delegates Consider That Other Griev  ances Should Be Rectified Before  Accepting Terms.  The Hospital-;.Addition.  The special committee appointed  to proceed with the erection of the  =addition=^tb=^tlie-=general^hospital=  met yesterday on the grounds with  a view to selecting the most suitable site for the projected cottage.  This proved to be a delicate proposition. Some 9000 square feet of  ground is available and to choose  the exact site just near enough and  sufficiently distant from the main  building to insure the most satisfactory results demanded further  consideration and the matter was  left open for a few days. Plans are  being prepared for the cottage and  will be submitted to the committee  with estimates shortly. The new  appliances for the operating room  at the hospital are expected almost  daily from the eastern manufacturer. These include a modern  operating table and a complete set  of surgical instruments. With  these additions the directors believe  that any class of operation can be  performed in Nelson.  Shot Dead.  Canterbury., B. C., via Golden,  October 11.���[Special to The Tribune.]���Arthur Dando, who has  lived in Argenta, Kaslo, Sandon  and Edmonton, was murdered Tuesday morning in Peterboro by Fred  Collins, a painter, formerly of  Woodstock, Ontario. Dando was  shot through the left lung and  groin. Collins was committed for  trial. He appears to be insane  from being struck by a bottle by  Dando Monday night in a house of  ill fame.   Accidental Death.  The outcome of the coroner's inquest iuto the death of the late  David A. McGee, who was killed at  Winlow's sawmill on Thursday, was  Scranton, Pennsylvania, October  12.���The mine workers' convention  adjourned, to meet at. 9 o'clock tomorrow morning. Froth the trend  of the remarks of the delegates it  was gathered that the ten per cent  proposition as it now stands has  very litcle.chance of being accepted.  The delegates seem, it was learned]  to be almost unanimous that the  operators should first make concessions in the other grievances before  the increase is accepted by the thine  workers. Great stress was laid on  the necessity of abolishing the sliding scale and substituting therefor  a tonnage basis on which to fix the  rate of wages. The proposition of  having the operators guarantee a  fixed time for paying the advauce  was also thoroughly discussed,  Avhile not a]'few of the delegates  said they would be satisfied with  nothing but a more liberal increase  in wages.  That the present .convention will  not come to .a definite conclusion is  the general belief tonight.  NELS0N=RIFLE=CL0B^SH00T  Good Work Expected.  If fair weather favors the occasion the first annual match of the  Nelson rifle company today should  be a great success. The prize list is  worth $125 in round numbers, and  has been arranged so that tho inexperienced men will have an excellent chance of making a comfortable winning. The nursery match  has been made one of the principal  events of the day, and the militiamen eligible to compete in it will  not be pitted against experienced  shots. This provision should insure a, full turnout of the company.  The orders for the day provide  for a company parade in uniform at  the ranges at 8:30 o'clock this morning. The firing is to commence  half au hour later at the 100-yard  target. The class firing required  by the militia department ia five  shots per man at 100, 200, 300 and  ���100 yards. The result of the shooting is forwarded to Ottawa and figures in the annual departmental  statistics. The-nursery and grand  aggregate matches are to be fired  at 200, 500 and 000 yards. The  members in attendance will be  divided into teams .for jt, team  shoot. A couple of targets will be  used for volley firing, the'team  scoring highest after several volleys  to win the event. Each team will  then be provided with a target and  instructed to commence independent fire. After a certain time the  targets will be taken down and results figured out.  Greenwood, October  12.���[Special     to     The    Tribune]���A.     H.  MacNeill, Q. C, the Liberal-Conservative candidate for Yale-Cariboo,  opened his campaign in the Boundary district on Thursday, the 11th  instant, having reached Greenwood  the previous night.   He was accompanied by W. A.  Macdonald, Q. C,  of Nelson.    As no intimation of the  intention   of   these   gentlemen   to  visit   the   chief  of the  Boundary  towns this week and address the  electors was received, other than a  telegram, which came too late to  allow of   their coming being   announced in Wednesday afternoon's  issue of the Greenwood  Times, the  attendance at last night's meeting  was not nearly so large as it would  have been had more publicity been  given'.   ���  During the afternoon Mr., MacNeill visited Midway and held a  small meeting there.    Iu the evening there were about 150 present in  the Auditorium, Greenwood, and 11.  C. Shaw was voted to the chair.  Mr. MacNeill opened by announcing .himself as a party man puro  and   simple,   and    expressed    the  opinion that there was plenty of  room in one or the other of the  two great political parties of Canada for all the electors without the  introduction of a third party.    He  reviewed the record of the present  government   during    its   term   of  office aud  contended that it was  more remarkable for what it had  neglected to  do than  for what it  had done.   The Liberals had  gone  into power with declared intentions  * to bring about-free . trade, but  the  total  reductions tliey had "made on  the tariff- were very  small, in   fact  the only thing in  which  they  had  ..been  true  to their free trade professions  was   in    connection  with  labor, in whicli they had permitted  the Chinese to continue free to compete against the workingmen of the  West.    At the last Dominion  election they had gained much support  in this province upon the  strength  of sir Wilfrid Laurier's telegram in  reply to  one  from  J. C. McLagan,  of   the  Vancouver  effect    that    since  question   was   the  affecting    British  opinions     of     the  the     province     upon     it     would  prevail.    And yet nothing had been  done to cheek  this  evil  until just  before the time for the elections to  World,  to the  the     Chinese  only one  then  Columbia,    the  electors     iu  come on, when the poll tax had  been raised to ��100 instead of $."500  as asked for by the workers of the  province. True, a commission had  been appointed to enquire into this  question, but he doubted if it would  ever agree upon any effective rcc-  oraendation, or would icport whilst  it had on it Mr. D. J. Munn, presi-  deut of the Salmon Canners Associ-  ENDS THE SEASON HAPPILY  With a Dinner Party.  The Nelson Quoiting Club wound  up the season of 1900 last night  with a very pleasant dinner at the  Waverley hotel. The club's first  season has been eminently successful and the organization is to be  floated next spring on a more comprehensive scale. It is proposed to  erect a club house on new grounds  to be decided upon at a future date  and to invite all citizens interested  in the healthy pastime to become  members.  The party assembled last night  included John Watson, judge Foriu,  R. Weir, J. Irvine, W. Miller, J.  MncKenzie, B. Walley, A. II. Clements, J. F. Weir, T). Hardie, E. G.  Smyth, .Tames O'Shea, captain Mc-  Morris, A. W. Purdy, J. H. Wallace,  A. M. Snyder and George Nunn.  John Watson occupied tho chair.  In the club tournament which concluded recently A. IT. Clements  capiured the championship with J.  H. Wallace as runner-up. Handsome gold scarf pins in tho shape of  miniature quoits with a monogram  ation of B. C, which was about the  largest employer of Chinese and  Japanese labor in the province,' to  stultify any remedial action Mr.  Ralph Smith���the most suitable  man obtainable for the commission,  by the way���might desire to recommend. He compared the mining  towns of Vancouver Island, where  Chinese are freely employed, with  those of the Kootenay and Boundary, and contended that the "contrast gave ample evidence of the  necessity for protecting labor  against the Chinese. But labor  must look to the Conservative party,  for such protection, for the Liberals,  would not carry out this policy,  which is the right one.  The   speaker   referred   to   the**  Liberal administration of the affairs  of the Yukon, which he contended  ho Liberal can look on with pride";-  to the delay of the government in *  sending   troops   to South   Africa-  until forced to do so by the strong  protests of the people of   Canada,  and to the scandal in  connection -  with   the   supply of   food  to  the  ..volunteers.      He next commented  upon   the  published Liberal- plat- '  form, one plank in which however  he agreed with, viz :   the  necessity J  for the imposition  of a sufficient '  duty upon lead  products so as to  benefit the .silver-lead  mining, industry of this  province,  but; this  protection, he declared,  would, not  be granted by the present  Liberal  government. - Whilst on the other,  hand   the    Conservatives     would **'  readily give it.   The speaker dealt  with* several other  matters*;-mentioning   particularly   the unsatisfactory . attitude   of   the. Liberal  government iriXegard to redistribu- _  -tion   and   the * much-needed ."sub- -  division" of "* the - enormoii3<">Yale-  Cariboo constituency - into' at- least  three electoral districts.    He closed,  after pointing out the impossibility  of a thorough canvass of  so  big  a  constituency, by an  appeal to all  not to be over confident, but to  do  thoir utmost to secure his election.  R. B. Kerr, barrister of  Phoenix,  next addressed the meeting, claim- _.  ing that  the  unprecedented  prosperity of Canada today was  due to  the wise'government of the  Liberals, and speaking in terms of warm  praise-of their  leader  sir Wilfrid  Laurier.    He was followed by W.  A. Macdonald, who maintained that  the Liberals came into. power just  at the time that the ebb of  depression had  ceased and the  glow of  prosperity had    commenced.     He  spoke   effectively   for    about   one  hour. ~  Tonight a public meeting will be  held at Phoenix and tomorrow  night at Grand Forks. Mayor  Goodeve, who arrived late last night  from Rossland, will also speak at  one of these meetings. Mr. MacNeill will return to Rossland on  Monday and go thenco to East  Kootenay.  "N. Q. C\," were purchased by the  club and presented to tho winners  last night by Mr. Watson and judge  Forin respectively.  Au inviting collation was served  by mine host Stevens, after which  a toastlist was introduced. Speeches  were contributed by Messrs. Forin,  McMorris, Wallace, Snyder' and  others. A. thoroughly pleasant  evening was passed and the affair  was voted a marked success.  Want $50,000.

Theone is said to be the  organ of'the labor unions of- Rossland for what there i.s in it,!the  ���othet-was-the���organ���of-the-Mine-  Owners* Union of Nelson so long as  thero was something in it.  ��� 'Tub provincial government made;  no mistake in selecting the members  of the board' of licensingJc!ommis-  sioners for Nelson license district;*'  All three have lived in Kootenay*  since 1880, and in Nelson since 1891.  -All are business men, and no one of  the three is a politician. ,; One is a  Conservative,   another   a   Liberal  and the other is an Independent  Labor party man.    It is safe to say  * that'when they grant a* license, the'  applicant will be a fit-and proper  person to sell liquor at retail, and ���  the premises will be up to the full  requirements of the law.  -The  returning officers" in- Yaie-  Cariboo   and -Burrard constituencies will iihdoubtedlyuso.itheir discretion in'naming the day on; which  polling will take place'in their eon-  .atitueneies.   Nomination day is set  for the last day of the -month, and  it would bedifflciirfc for the returning officer, located as he is at Kamloops, for Yale-Cariboo to deliver  ballot papers and  ballot boxes to  all the outlying  polling places in  hi.s immense constituency-within a  week, and the party in rpower will  see to it that all the advantages  that will accrue from < the result of  the elections in 'other portions  of  the   Dominion   will   inure   to the  benefit of the standard bearer of  the party in this constituency^' and  the one advantage is: Many \ieo->  pie like to be on the winning side.'  If the east goes Liberal, Yale-  Kootenay will do likewise. Sb in  Burrard. The returning officer  lives in Vancouver. It Would be  impossible for him to deliver ballot,  papers and boxes at tho outlying  polling places iu Cassiar within a  week after nomination day.

Nanaimo, B. 0., October 5);���Hon.  .Inmes Diinsniuir denies in a special  telegram  to the Free Press, pub-  . li.ihedin this evening's issue, astute:  ment made by the Scotch  miners,  i 11 an interview with a Free Press  reporter, to the   effect that they  could not make more than $2 a day,  and had to have a Chinese helper.  He says that the miners will be'  pruaranteed $3 a day if they go to  work.    Thoy   were,   he   also says,  brought out to replace  Chinamen,  and will not be expected to take  Chinese helpers.   The miner leaders here think that the Scots - made  a mistake in leaving Union so hurriedly, and weakened their case, especially in coming here, instead of  - attempting amicable - negotiations  with Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir regarding  the ' difficulty. Mr." Ralph Smith  went to Victoria this morning, to  interview lion. Mr. Dunsmuir in a  friendly consultation on behalf of  the Scotsmen, after which-he will  follow 'Messrs. Sloan and Mclnnes  in their > tour of the Saanich and  C'owichan districts.  ���There   was a rumor   yesterday  that the revolt among a section of-  tlio   Scotch, operators   engaged to;  work in Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir's mines  had-been transmitted to^the. party,  hooked to arrive on the Imperial  f/tinited yesterday.   This proved to;  be   absolutely    unfounded.   "The  miuers arrived  all right, but-the  tv revolt'did'not materialize.  - ^TheJjimited arrived "at 11 o'clook  lust night,, and tho miners," 75  in  .viiiimbeivwere sooii-on the.platform.  ' Newspaper ' reports _  had -reached  -   rhem en route of tub-disagreement"  :   that had occurred with "those who.,  fame  before them, and  naturally  ���  enough they.looked for some one to  - explain the situation.  .   A" News-Advertiser  reporter  interviewed several of the men, and  was" informed that'the understanding upon upon -which-' they- agreed  'to'come to -'British'.Columbia".was  :tliat their wages- should be. $3 per,  -dayraud-that they could   work  in  I>airs.if ��� they so desired.  Mr." F.'T). Little; manager of the  mines;-was at the-depot when-the  train arrived. He was met by the  miners iu the most friendly way,  with good-natured - Scotch ��� jokes  and workmen's badinage. Mr. Lit-  ;tle:explained to-the-men that the;  terms of the company were that  =they=sliould=make=$JUper-=day?=as=a-  minimum wage. If their location  chanced to permit better.pay:to be  earned in operating the coal, they  could make more. The company  would contract to employ them for,  two or three years at $3 per day.  ; Tliey. would not allow a man to.get  . down in tho mine, smoke his pipe,  and defy the "company to discharge  him.   He asked if they had nnder-  ��� stood that there was to be such an  agreement as that.   A dozen voices  ' answered "No" to this question,  and the men one and all agreed  that the statement of the manager,  was iu strict conformity with the  . understanding they had ��� before  leaving the old coiintry. That was  what the agent had represented  when engaging them.  The manager further explained  that the men might work iri Paris,  hire help, or do as they chose: On  that score. There was nothing in  the report that they were obliged  to work with a Chinaman; in fact,  it was because they wished to introduce white labor intotho mines  altogether that-they were engaged.'  The men inarched from the train  to tiie"C- P. It. >'��� wharf; where ~ the  steamer Thistle was lying, headed  by a>,iolly;fellow*with a concertina.  They exchanged jokes in a good  Scotch brogue as,they went. There  was no mistakiugrtheirMiatioiialty.  The Thistle was commissioned to  carry them to Union, and after  getting tlieir baggage transferred  the miners took a stroll up town,  andihad'a'jolly hour. The-steamer  sailed at 2 o'clock-this morning.  Mr. Little was spoken to by tho  -reporter relative to the* trouble at  the-inines.' * He'said'that the news-  '*-*paper' reports* had _ misrepresented  the situation.    Speaking generally,  he7 said that there were about 122  - men in-the first company ithat came  out.    Of this number there  were  only 30 who had-refused to work.  Their grounds for   striking -were  certainly not because of breach of  faith by the company.     The company guaranteed to the men  that  they,'should ^make. $3 . -per' day,  whether they worked in one- inch  or ten feet of coal.    If the deficient  eies of- the location prevented them  from  making the .$3 per day.-the  company ageed to make tJie difference good.   The $3 wage was- .the  minimum, and  there had been no  retraction    from    the   agreement.  The men now   at* work, he   said,  were a splendid lot of' fellows ���- and  good-miners, and apparently they  were   contented    with    their   lot.  "Their ouly   objection,"   said  Mr.  Little, smiling, "if there is any, is  that they have to live in wooden  houses.     In   Scotland  the miners  scarcely   know   what    a   wooden  house is.  - Bees* Produce $20,000,000.  "When the story of the twelfth  census is fully told it will show in  an interesting way the astonishing  -development of. the apiarian industry in the United States," said  Prof. L. O. Howard, chief of the  bureau of entomology and known  all over the country as Uncle Sam's-  "bug man."  ' "Bee culture is practically a development of the last forty years,"  he continued, "although isolated individuals were engaged in the work  long before that time; The importance of the industry at the  present day is not generally realized.  There are more than 300,000 persons'  engaged in the culture of bees in"  the United--States-alone, and the  present census will show the present  annual value of aparian products to  be in excess of $20,000,000. There-  are 110 apiarian societies. Eight  journals of. some magnitude are de-'  -voted to the industry. Fifteen  -steam power.-factories' are- engaged  in the.production of.supplies for.'  the bee industry. ' Mr." Benton, our"-  befa expert," estimates'that the present existing flora of the United'  ���States could -undoubtedly' support  -with"the same average profit ten*  times the number of colonies: of-  bees it now supports. Think what  that means. An industry of  $200,000,000 a. year- supporting  3,000,000 healthy, happy workers.  "Once the possibilities'' of- the  ��� Americaiv-apiary are*���"thoroughly  understood,- many of-the .'-thousands'  ���barely-existing in-the strenuous life  of the great cities will turn to bee  culture, which well .repays" the'intelligent andearei'nl worker."  Cure for- Malaria.  Passengers from the Orient'report* that professor-Koch has'arrived at Hong-Hong. ��� The eminent'  bacteriologist of Berlin has devoted  a year to scientific inve'stigatio'ns"  =in^he���Dutch���West-rndies*=and=iir  the German colonies of East Africa  for the purpose of testing his cure  of malaria, which was only partially successful* in Germany before  his- departure. The scientist now  announces to the medical world  that his cure is positive and that  every malarial district can be absolutely purged.  Since his stay in Java professor  Koch procured several gorillas, infected with malaria, whom he gave  hypodermic injections of -his virus,  and in their food he mixed a medicine which contained; about 50 per  cent of quinine. The doses* were  much larger' than : those intended  for human'-beings, and the results  were: eminently satisfactory. ��� Dr.  Koch announces that his medicine  is both for curative and preventive  purposes.  He wants it known that he has  found a way of ridding countries of  malarial parasites, the mosquitoes.  On his arrival at Berlin he will present his official report to the; government and will recommend - that  'measures be taken at once to use  his method of exterminating parasites and; his cure for malaria,  which he claims can be manufactured in all countries.  in  DEPENDS ON HOW YOU BUY  Wholesale and Retail  XMmi&TOGK  OF  GOODS  BOUGHT  THIS  YEAR  HAS  NO   EQUAL   IN  B. 0.

Some person, supposed to be a  small boy, threw a stone through  one of the plate glass windows in  the office of the Iiotel Hume last  night.  Allan Brothers, contractors, have  purchased the steam launch Mischief. It is understood they will  build a new hull and utilize the  Mischief's engine for the craft.  :, Rev. Mr. White will preach at  the Baptist church tomorrow,  morning ancl evening. "'Morning  subject, "The People's Service."  evening, "Whose Sons Are Ye ?"  "The Devil's Advice" will be the  subject of Rev. William Munroe's  sermon on Sunday evening in the  opera house. There'will be the  usual good music by the choir. A  cordial invitation is extended to all.  A full rehearsal of the-principals,  chorus and orchestra" of- the "Mikado" will be held at. the opera  house this afternoon at 1:JJ0 o'clock.  The managent of Gorton's Minstrels,  who have the opera house engaged  for the day, have courteously permitted the amateiu\s to uso the  stage.  The-Liberals will have their first  general meeting tonight .in the  Hume building on Vernon street.  All voters who intend supporting  candidate Galliher are invited to be  present. The Conservatives are  holding meetings nightly in their  committee rooms in the Houston  block. The Labor party men are  workiug quietly and they say successfully. ���  Fred Irvine & Co. claim that by  constantly' using the Daily and  Weekly editions of The Tribune  as an advertising medium, and  .making their -prices right, they  have put a stop to the people of  Nelson and Slocan ridings sending  orders Cor millinery and dry' goods  to department stores in Toronto  and Montreal, lb pays to advertise  in a newspaper that hns a standing  in a. community.  Gorton's minstrels entertained a  large audience at the opera house  last night and entertained them  well. - The company's first part is  splendidly produced and is replete  with new songs well sung and  humorous dialogue which kept the  audience intensely amused. The  olio comprises a series of original  and catchy features, iu addition to  which the work of the orchestra is  excellent. The stage setting is  handsome, and altogether the show  merits patronage. Tonight the  minstrels hold the boards again  and should have a crowded house.  .The Nelson Mattress Company is  now turning out'goods aud will be  placing its product on the market  extensively.when all the plant is installed and working smoothly. The  firm has orders ahead for some  time. One of the ingenious mechanical contrivances is the machine  used for shredding the eottonwood  used in the center of mattresses. It  shaves off long thin strips which  retain tlieir resistence indefinitely,  and are unimpaired long after the  excelsior from fir and other woods  used in the east have become brittle  and flat. The company is turning  out a triple cable mattress which is  as near the ideal product as possible. -  Will Blow in, on "Wednesday.  v: The second furnace of.vthesGraiid  -F6rks sinelter will be blown' in on  Wednesday next.

A large sized discord exists iu  connection with the newly reorganized Smelter band and the Citizens'  baud, which ."went out of existence  recently after lasting over the summer months. Certain musical instruments are the bone���of contention and the proposition has already  reached the stage where the assistance of the law^ has been enjoined  to secure an arrangement. The  original Smelter band went out of  business last winter when the Hall  Mines smelter shut down. A number of the members went into the  Citizens' band on its organization  and used the instruments they had  received from the Smelter baud.  Then the Citizens', band was laid  away in the local musical cemetery  aud the Smelter band was reorganized. It is asserted that the instruments in question belonged to  the smelter, band a3. a. whole aud  not to the individual members.  Hence the new Smelter band claims  ownership, which is now denied by  tlieiparty now.in- possession. Tiie  Smelter bandjlias placed their case  in the hands of Galliher & Wilson,  who will.apply to the court for a  writ of replevy., .    '  ~~Notice/  Books writ! en up to date, and audi I nd.
