 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSOIST:  MONDAY MORNING OCTOBER 15  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  A MINING DISTRICT OF PROMINENCE  The Goat River Country is Fast Coming to the Front as  an Ore Producer.  i ���  MANY CLAIMS ARE BEING LOCATED AND MUCH WORK DONE  The Goat River mining district  has come into prominence during  the summer just closed because of  soveral extensive deals  which promise to bring the country to the  front as a mineral   district.   The  effect of these has been  to stimulate interest in the mining possibilities of the division, and if "matters  take the turn which is predicted by  those familiar with the situation  there would seem  to be brighter  days  in  store for that portion of  the Kootenays.     The Goat River  district is one of the largest mining  divisions in British ; Columbia.   Its  northern limit is at Pilot Bay,-'from  where the district extends south to  the   international   boundary' line,  east to the summit of Moyie, and  ,west'to. the  divide between   the  Kootenay arid Salmon rivers.   The  principal mining sections are on La  France, Midge; Grey's, Granite, Mar-  tell,  Boulder,   Fort  Sheppard and  /Duchv creeks,  the divide  between  ' -Arrow creek and Goat, river and  - -the   White Grouse  district.     The  country is full of mineral, however,  all the creeks having more or less  promising locations.   The   characteristic ore is gold, silver and copper,   although   there are   sections  having   free   milling ore, such as  Midge creek, on which the -Valparaiso property" is   located.   In the  White Grouse section- gold, silver  and copper is found in a granite  formation, while about -Duck creek.  . considerable vlead. ��� is   encountered.  -The" best^sra*mp[e'*vof"this- class of  proogrties is the Alice group,  now  ��� under bond at $25,000 to- the Manchester, England, syndicate  repre-  .- sented here by T.   G.  Proctor - of  Nelson.  Generally speaking the Goat  River district is undeveloped.  Most of the work in the country  ���hai been done by locators and has  been confined, with few exceptions,  to assessments. Enough has been  accomplished, however, to indicate  that the country has a great future  ahead. The opinions of men who  have seen considerable of this province are that Goat River will yet  be as good if not better than any  other district. The great drawbacks are lack; of- transportation  and smelting facilities. The construction of the Crow's Nest and  Nelson & Bedlington roads helped  matters somewhat, the former tapping the White Grouse country via  ^Kitcheneiuand=tlie=latter==affording=  facilities for the southern section.  .The C. P. R.has run a preliminary  survey up Whitefish creek, and if  this road is constructed it means  much to White Grouse property  -owners, as tho line will run into the  Storm King basin, which is the  heart of the section, besides bring--  ing transportation into the St.  , Marys and Perry Creek sections.  In connection with the Perry  Creek country it is interesting to  note that this was one of the first  sectioas of the Kootenay country  to become known** to the outside  world. TJie Wild Horse placer rush  of a quarter of a century ago  brought many prospectors to Perry  creek and a large sum was taken  put. The placer deposits were  worked until the old methods could  not be profitably employed, when  it was practically deserted up to  last year, when reported discoveries of rich quart?; inaugurated another rush.  The only survival of the old  placer days is the Perry Creek Mining company which has been workingajhydraulic proposition for sev-  eraM*years. The Petty syndicate  has acquired sdm'e 30 claims in the  St. Mary's country, about half of  which have been - crown granted.  They have a crew at work and will  continue operations for an indefinite period.  Another important deal in the  White Grouse section was closed  last week. A San Francisco syndicate headed by Senator Burns acquired a bond on the Last Chance  group from D. McLellan and N.  Murphy, the consideration being  $30,000. Philip Corcoran, the syndicate expert, was   Identified   with  Mackay, the California millionaire  of Pacific cable fame in the latter's  Comstock transactions and represented the syndicate in the Goat  river deal. He was in Nelson last  .week en route to San Francisco to  lay his report before the principals.  Senator Burns was to have visited  the properties.but on reaching Port-  laud, Oregon, was'summoned home  by wire. The same people bonded  the Harris group from Mrs. Harris  of Kaslo at $125,000 and the Maple  Leaf group on Goat river from Mrs.  Harris also at $50,000. Mr. ��� Corcoran will come north a inonth  hence and is expected to announce  the syndicate's intention with regard to commencing work. He is  said to have asked for a. working  capital of ' $400,000 and to have  stated that if his syndicate goes  ahead with the properties the - construction of a smelter to handle  ores therefrom will be a feature of  their program. *  The Imperial Mines, Limice^, of  Kaslo have bonded the WiHIam  Toll, Marratt and La Belle groups  from Joe Martell and H. T. Buf-  meister on a basis of $30,000. They  have 15 men at work on the properties and propose to continue development all winter. The Alice  group at Dutch creek is now being  developed under the direction of I.  G. Proctor and is showing up well.  In addition to . these there have  been a number of minor deals, all  pointing to a remarkable increase  of activity in the mining lino.  ��� The London & B. C. Goldfields is  interested on* the divide between'  Arrow "creek" "and" Goat -river'���At  this point there is an iron ledge of  great width "carrying gold values.  The ledge outcrops fdr miles and is  staked at probably 50 places. On  the London & B.C. claims eight or  ten men are at work. On this  ledge is tho Crackerjack, a promising group owned by parties from  Port Hill, Idaho. The Jolly Boy is  in the same section, and a half  interest in - it is owned . by  Mrs. Clark of the Queen's  hotel and John Longridge, the other  interest belonging to C. P. Hill  of Port Hill. Considerable work  has been dono on the Jolly Boy,  which is regarded as one of the  best locations on the ridge. F. W.  Peters and W. IT. Dowsing of Nelson are also interested with E. J.  Matthews, who represents Braden  Brothers in British Columbia, in a  promising property in this section.  Copper, camp on Boundary creek,  near-the^IdahoHinefis^lookiirg=i=npr  well. Rossland parties are largely  interested and are putting in funds  to demonstrate the merits of the  camp. Some of .the finest sjpeci-  raens of mineral ever obtained in  the province have come from Copper camp.        :  More work will be done this winter in the Goat River district than  during any previous winter in the  history of the division, and it La expected that next spring will witness the opening of a substantial  boom. ... '.- .���   .   .-" ,f"-  IN FAVOR OF THE DEFENDANT  Tried in All the Courts.  A case of much more that ordinary interest in legal and mining  circles has just been concluded by a  judgment from the supreme court  of Canada in favor of the defendant in the suit of Callahan vs.  Coplen. The action was an adverse  stilt and was commenced about ii  year age. Plaintiff Callahan  claimed ther Cube Lode claim adjoining the Freddie Lee, oue of the  pioneer properties in the Slogan.  The Freddie Lee people had done  about $25,000 worth of work on the  property under the impression that  the land lay inside their location.  Coplen staked a claim, believing  that his location was the Freddie  Lee extension. Later Callahan discovered that neither Coplen nor  the Freddie Lee people had staked  the Freddie Lee extension, and  staked ifc himself. Coplen applied  for a crown grant and  Calkdiau  adversed him, thus precipitating a  legal contest which was carried  through every court in Canada.  On the first hearing judge;Martin  decided that Coplen. had- a good  ease. Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper  appealed on behalf of Callahan and  the full court'reversed the judgment. Daly & Hamilton of Rossland then appealed to the supreme  court of Canada and the matter  was argued at the last sittings of  the court prior to the long vacation  by A. B. Aylesworth, . Q. C, of  Toronto for Coplen and sir Charles  Hibbert Tupper for Callahan.  Judgment was reseryed and has  just been handed down in favor of  Callahan, dismissing Coplen's appeal with costs.  J The main point of interest to  egal and mining men in the case is  that by the decision of the supreme  court of Canada a certificate of  work on a mineral claim is robbed  of many of the qualities heretofore  ascribed to it. - Legally speaking  the decision is that a certificate of  work is based upon and must presuppose a valid location, or, in  other words the onus is upon the  persons setting up a certificate of  work to show that prior to .the  certificate of work he "had a good,  valid and subsisting title to the  location.       .     *   -  WALDERSEE EXPLAINS DELAY  OPERATORS DON'T LIKE IT  END OF GOAL MINERS!

The rifle company's first annual  shoot took place at the ranges on  Saturday and was most successful.  The turnout of members was excellent and the shooting as a rule  very fair, considering that many of  tho members are unable to leave  business for the' regular Saturday  afternoon practice. The day was  showery, but the absence of wind  about counterbalanced this and the  scores iu the nursery match for  militiamen who had not previously  won $3 or over with a military  rifle indicate that the company  has excellent material for good  shots.

The supporters of candidate Galliher held a rousing meeting at  their committee rooms, corner of  Ward and Vernon streets, on Saturday night. The meeting was for  organization purposes and had not  been extensively advertised, despite  which fully 125 Liberals were present.  ^^^he^gatheringjocas^not^only^en-  thusiastic, but thoroughly representative, many leading professional and business men' being present, and a striking feature was the  very large number of workingmen  who attended and manifested a  keen interest in the proceedings.  After Johu A. Gibson had been  chosen chairman and H. W. R.  Moore secretary candidate Galliher  addressed the meeting. lie devoted  a few minutes to^ refuting some of  the charges brought against the  present administration by the Conservatives and then turned to the  local political situation.  Mr. Galliher stated that he had  recently t&ken a trip through Boundary, Rossland and East Kootenay,  and had paid a flying visit to the  Slocan. Everywhere he had been  most encouraged by the reception  accorded him. Though Mr. Foley,  the labor candidate, might take  away a few votes, he was no longer  in the least afraid of the latter's  candidature. The working men at  large recognized the great services  rendered by the Liberal party to  organized labor. They knew their  real friends and were not supposed  to be ungrateful. He-anticipated a  hard tight, but withVthe stauuch  and veteran workers he saw about  him had no doubt ho would head  the poll.  Mr. Galliher's speech was warmly  applauded. Dr. Forin, who has  just returned from Greenwood, followed. After paying a tribute to  Mr. Galliher's popularity he referred  to the excellent work done for the  miners by R. C. Clute, Q. C, late  commissioner into the effects of the  eight hour law appointed by the  Laurier   government.      He    also  pointed out that R. C. Clute, together with Messrs. r Munn and  Ralph Smith, had recently been appointed by the Liberal administration as a commission to investigate  the Oriental immigration question.  Dr. Forin concluded an effective address by telling of the great  streugth attained by the Liberal  cause in Greenwood. '.  The speech-making was closed by.  a.stirring address from W. A. McLean who, amid thunders of applause, pointed to the great position among the nations of the  world to which Canada has risen  mainly through the exertions of sir  Wilfred Laurier and his cabinet.  He accused ��the. Conservatives, of  having no platform *und, no policy  save a desire to get into oflice  again.   _.._..  Organization was proceeded with  and H. W. Si. Moore was appointed  permanent secretary of the local  organization and R. J. Steel, George  S. Beer and James McPhee assistant secretaries. Some 75 names  were proposed for the general canvassing committee. Other committees will be appointed in a day or  two. The committee rooms in the  old Tribune office oii Vernon street  are,now open, and all supporters of  candidate Galliher will be welcomed there during the campaign.  I. fl. FOBD'S WEEKLY CABLE&BAM  Religious Questions  Cut  No  Figure  Whatever * in the;  Recent Elections.  ILLUSTRATES THE NEGESSITY FOR MILITARY REFORM  MMl  HIS BODY IN THE ICE BOX  A NEW YORK SALOON KEEPER'S  METHOD OF SHUFFLING OFF  Hangs, Shoots and Inhales Gas in Order  to Make a Complete Job,- in ���  Wliich He Is Successful.  New Yo'iik, October M.���Henry  Wilkin's, a Nassau street-saloon  keeper, killed himself today. ' He  was despondent over continued ill  health. Wilkins left his home in  Brooklyn in-the morning afteivkiss-  ing-his wife several" times.- When  he got to his saloon in this city he  telephoned an undertaker, telling  him a friend of his was dead and  the undertaker would presently get  the job of burying him. At noon  he sent a bootblack with a note to  Mrs. Wilkins and followed this  with another by a second bootblack  to the undertaker. The two notes  announcing his suicide brought the  wife and'undertaker to the saloon.  Not beiug able to get in the police  were summoned and broke down  the door. On the bar was a note  which read: "Body in the ice box."  Wilkins was found in the ice box  dead, in the cellar. The door of it  was shut tight and gas fumes filled  it. The body hung by apiece of  clothes line from two hooks driven  into a joist overhead. A 45-caIibre  revolver was tied_about_hischest,.  and a rubber hose fastened to the  gas fixture hung at his side. The  arrangements of the revolver  showed great care and pains. " It  was fastened with a piece of  clothes line, the strands of which  had been unwound and so fastened  to the Aveapon as to make it point  almost direct towards the man's  heart. A yard of twine fastened  to the trigger had a loop in the  other end of it, so as to make it  possible for Wilkins to slip his foot  iuto it and pull the trigger in that  way. He had evidently stood on a  half barrel near by, adjusted the  rope and revolver and had turned  on the gas aud put the end of the  tube in his mouth. He had then  stepped oif the half barrel. There  was a bullet wound in his chest  and two cartridges in the revolver  had been discharged.  Fall Assizes.  The fall assizes open at the court  house tomorrow. The criminal  docket for the assizes is one of the  longest on record, and it is extremely improbable that the civil  list will be reached before the  middle of next week. Court opens  at 11 o'clock tomorrow morning,  and the first proceedings will be  the submission of cases to the  grand jury. No session will be  held on Thursday, which is Thanksgiving day. H. A. MacLean, deputy  attorney-general, arrived in the  eity last night and is registered at  the Hotel Hume. He will prosecute  the crimiual cases for the crown.  London, October 11.���A special  from Shang-Hai says dysentery is  raging among the troop3 at Tien-  Tsin.  New  York, October  14.���Isaac  N. Ford cables the Tribune at  1  o'clock  this  morning  in regard to  the elections.   Touching upon the  position  of the  church in politics,  and the latest returns, he says: Religious questions have been virtually excluded from the  elections.  The.Church Association, which was  well   supplied   with money for a  canvass in the interest of Protestant principles, has pledged more or  less directly a large number of candidates to  act in conformity with  its ideas of discipline in the English  church.     But   except  in two   instances it has not thrown its influence," with decisive  effect against  the   men who refused to commit  themselves.   It has driven several  candidates from one seat to another  and has-helped to defeat oue Liberal in Sunderland and' one Conservative in Torquay.    Its secretary  asserts that 'its   work   has    been  highly   successful,    but    practical  politicians had not been seriously  impressed with the results of the  anti-ritualist agitation.  The chief- ritualistic Liberal,  George, has not been a candidate  for parliament, so that there has  been no prominent target for Protestant agitators. It is asserted  that the first test vote on the religious question will reveal a great  accession to tho Protestant strength  in the new parliament. A more  reasonable view is that the Bishops  will be allowed a long interval in  which to exert theirpersonal -influence over the extremists and that  "botlr-'-vparties'- -in -parliament.' will  keep ritualism out of "polities as  long as -possible. A three clays'  conference on ritualism has ended  in Fulham palace after a prolonged  discussion of the doctrine of, the  holy communion. It has been a  round table conference in the in--  terest of peace in the church,* and.  Lord Halifax has been the chief  representative of the English church  union with its thirty- thousand  members. Fourteen churchmen,  more or less representatives of different "schools of thought, have at:,  tended its sessions and an important report of the points of agreement reached will be prepared.  As the extremists oh both sides  favor disestablishment, the general  trend of religious agitation in the  English church is unmistakable.  Politicians assert that disestablish-'  ment cannot-be^made^wbu rnin g=\  question in England until it has  been taken up in Scotland, and that  the latter result lias been deferred  for ten years by tho fusion of the  free and united Presbyterian  churches, which will be pre-occu-  pied for a long period by the details of their new organization.  The few Liberals in sight in the  empty clubs at midnight were not  disposed to believe that the remaining elections would disclose  gains for their party. Three seats  had been won including Tnvernes-  shire, and one lost on deferred announcements of Friday's polling,  and all but one of the districts  polling on Saturday were Liberal  at the last election. The Unionists  will probably win at least one additional seat next week, and they  already have a margin of one over  their majority of the last parliament.  mental canteen testified against  him and his superior officers had  found the coins when he was  searched. '   -  The defence was a counter.charge  of conspiracy to destroy 'his reputation by convicting him of- theft.  This defence was accepted and the  young officer was honorably acquitted. The pleadings of a white-  haired man lent, pathos to -the  scene in court. This was the  young artillery officer's father,  whose joy was unbounded when his  son was acquitted.  Empress Frederick's Illness.  In regard to the illness of empress Frederick, Mr. Ford cables as  follows: There are no clear accounts of the nature of empress  Frederick's malady or the gravity  of the case, but there is a general  agreement that her- condition is  critical, and that, the aged queen is  destined to' have another* sorrow -  darken her declining years/ The  journey of the duke and duchess1 of ���.  Connaught to Germany is probably  connected with the sad tidings of  the empress' illness. Like all royal  journeys since the attack upon the  prince of Wales, it was "planned  suddenly.

Mr.-Ford  says :    Sir Redvers Buller's  return  to England is a great surprise-to  military   men-here, who had ex-  ; pected that he would succeed lord  Roberts. " It is   intei-preted-'1as* a  sign  that  lord   Kitchener  willHbe.  left in  command  in  South Africa.^ -  This result causes -.satisfaction ,ih  two quarters..  The Aldershot gang-  is relieved because it   dreads"the  transfer of lord Kitchener to London, where he might turn the,military service upside down if allowed  by lord Salisbury to  have a free  hand ;   the    South - African   community     here     is     also     pleased  because-  it-   is.   weary    of   what;  it    describes'  [as    'lord   Robert's  "soft hearted leniency" and regards"  Lord KitchneV as a rough and resolute soldier who will not bo swayed  by sentimental considerations,, bufc  will restore order in the* two new  colonies by drastic methods.   .This  feeling is shared without doubt-'by  a large section of the public, -wliich  reads with impatience the accounts  df^raiding^operatioliF^by^oiVeral"    "  Dewet's burgers and the Transvaal  trainWreckers.   General Buller has  been relieved of command and .allowed to return in advance of   lord  Roberts in order that he may not  suffer the humiliation of being  set  aside in favor of lord Kitchner.  Charged With Embezzlement.  Mr. Ford, in speaking of the necessity for military reform, relates  the following incident: The necessity for military reform on a small  scale has beeu illustrated by a veritable Adelphi drama upon which  the curtain has fallen at Dover.  Lieutenant Beckett of the Royal  Garrison Artillery was arrested a  inonth ago and subsequently kept  (Under guard'of-his younger bi other  to stand trial for embezzling or  stealing two half crowns from the  regimental canteen. Hcwassearched  when accused of the theft and two  marked coins were found in his  pockets. The military trial has occupied several days and has attracted much attention. There was  a strong circumstantial case against  him, for two subalterns of the regi-  VIOLATED THE CAME LAW  Indians Arrested.  Chief  Andrew,   the    hereditary  head of   the Colville   Reservation  Indians,  is  in   the  provincial .jail  here with one of his warriors, Edward.       The    charge     registered  against the noble red men is that of  killing  game in British Columbia  contrary to the Game Protection  Act, which expressly sets forth that  none   bufc   Canadian; Indians may  kiirgame on this side of the international   boundary.        Complaints  had been made to AV  IT.  Bullock-'  Webster, chief of provincial police,  that American Indians were kiJliuj?  deer nt Slocan Crossing and selling  venison   to   Nelson   hotels.      Constable   Alan   Forester   of   Robson  looked into  the. matter and found  that the small amount of  venison  sold here had been legally killed by  Baptisto  and Alex, two  Canadian  Indians well known at Robson.   On  visiting chief Andrew's camp, he  discovered  thafc  tho chief and his  henchman had killed one deer aud  some small game, all of which had  gone into the camp kettle.    The infraction of the game law was evident, however, and he arrested the  two.   They wero brought   to the  city, yesterday and will be brought  before magistrate Crease today.  *M  *H  -4--KI 2  THI"' TRIBUNE:  NELSON B.C.

IS.  Coursier, esquire.  The Seattle papers make  much  of the fact that over eight hundred  individuals deposited  gold in the  Seattle assay oflice since the first  day of July of this year, and that  the greater number of these individuals mined the gold they deposited  in mines located in Canada.     The  assay office at Seattle was estab  lished for the purpose of securing  the trade of the gold seekers of the  I north, and  its  establishment was  brought about by the business men  of   that city for selfish purposes.  The operation of the assay office  han   brought   them    hundreds   of  thousands  of dollars  in trade, for  every man that sells his dust atthe  Seattle assay office spends more or  less money in Seattle in purchasing  supplies, and many of them make  permauent investments there. Why  should this trade have been entirely  losfc to British   Columbia?     Is the  province   too   poor   to    equip  an  assay  office?   .  Are  the  banks  of  Victoria less able ^to  purchase the  gold certificates issued by a government assay office than the banks of  Seattle?   No.     The   province   has  money to squander on useless mining   commissions.       The  banks of  Victoria have ample ready money  to purchase all the gold, mined on  the Pacific Coast., What is lacking  then ?   Simply,- some one to take  the initiative.     Some one strong  enough to act without paying heed  to the selfish cries of rival  towns.  No such man ;has yefc appeared in  either Victoria or Vancouver, for  the reason  that neither town has  other than one-idead men.  issuing an evening paper for the remainder of the campaign.  The Fort Steele Prospector sa5's  that little or no interest is being  taken in politics in southeast Kootenny.  According to the News-Advertiser, Mayor Garden's' acceptance of  the Conservative nomination in  Burrard wa.s not what tho Liborals  wanted.  Tho Sandon Paystreak says :  "Chris. Foley will get three votes  in the Slocan" for ono that will go  to Galliher and McNeill. Tho old  parties are as dead ns Julius Ca'sar."  Advices from Nanaimo are that  Tully Boyee, the well-known labor  leader of Nanaimo, is about to tako  action for criminal libel against the  Nanaimo Herald for alleged defamation of character. Tho trouble  arose over politics. Tully Boyce  and W. W. B. Mclnnes are fighting  Ralph Smith and supporting Sloan.  Mclnnes admits that Ralph Smith  has the pull in "the city, bufc contends that -itf-the. district -lie'is  powerless, as the farmers, have little or no sympathy with'" what is  generally termed the labor cause.  In commenting on the political  meeting held at Greenwood last  week, at which candidate McNeill  of Rossland, W. A. Macdonald of  Nelson, and R. B. Kerr of Phoenix  snoke, the Greenwood Mines says  the speeches of the three gentlemen  can be found in the campaign litcr-  erature of their respective parties.  It also says : " Both are clever manipulators of the truth, and good  stump orators. Mr. McNeill is a  forcible speaker and his statements  carry weight,-though he apparently has little experience in campaigning. Perhaps with greater experience he would carry less weight."

Tiik members of the Dunsmuir  government who were expected to  take a run up to Kootenay seem to  ...   be so busy at Victoria that they  y:-_ cannot find the time.     Provincial  * -| secretary Prentice i.s "subbing" for  * finance minister,Turner, which may  mean thafc Mr. Turner is on his way  to Kootenay.  Is it not a trifle inconsistent to  oppose candidate Galliher and candidate MacNeill because they are  adherents of political parties and  support candidate Foley because he  is riot a party man. What is the  Independent Labor party if it is  not a political party? Would its  sponsors not like to see it Jn control  of the government, or are they  mere Don Quixotes, who go forth  to defend the oppressed and'avenge  theinjured as knight errants without hope of reward ?  Thr   notice given* by   the  Victoria Colonist that there would be  changes which  would   startle  the  people of   the   province   as soon  as premier Dunsmuir returned wa.s  evidently   official.       The   changes  have   been   made, and   the country  is   yelling   itself   hoarse   because of the far-reaching benefits  that will be felt by all the people  from'  making   F. G.   Fauquier   of  Nakusp,  esquire, to be stipendiary  magistrate, government agent, as-*  Tun Mining and Scientific Press  of San Francisco, in commenting on  the question of taxation of the output of  metalliferous mines,  says:  "The   difference - between   theory  " and condition is exemplified  by  " the approved suggestion through-  " out   British Columbia   that  the  " provincial  tax on metal ores be  "made differential;   that i.s, that  " the tax be doubled in the case of  " ores sent out of the province ��� for  " treatment, the idea being to en-  " courage local smelters, Avhich, in  " the main, is a good plan, but un-  " der   the   existing   conditions   in  " British   Columbia is   not   to   be  "given      serious     consideration."  What are the existing conditions in  =BHtisirX'olulnbia?~    The province  has the largest and best developed  coal mines on the Pacific coast, and  more coke ovens than any state or  territory west of   the   Mississippi  .riveri    Lime rock and iron ore are  abundant. The province, -therefore,  is not lacking in some of tthe essentials necessary  for the successful  smelting of ores.    Has the province  metal ores ?   West Kootenay is today   producing hundreds  of   tons  daily of silver-lead and gold-copper  ores, and other sections of the province   have   promising   metal   ore  mines.   What is to prevent these  ores being successfully smelted  in  the province?   Is it a lack of smelters?   There is a smelter in operation at  Nelson, another at Trail,  and a third at Grand Forks.    The  combined capacity of these  three  smelters is between  1500 and 2000  tons a day, which can be increased  on short notice.   If these are statements of fact, legislation that would  discriminate in favor of smelters  located   in   British    Columbia    as  against like enterprises located at  San Francisco should nofc only be  given serious consideration, but no  time should be lost in  putting it  into effect.

The sultan is the corapletest autocrat iu the world. The czar has his  bureaus, the dowager empress has  her Li Hung Chang, the sultan has  his own despotic will.  A week sultan might be run by  his ministers.   This sultan is not  weak.    He is the sole power of the  ���'empire.    He crushes the strong and  exploits the feeble.    All the  palace  '-officialsare his creatures.  v    He does every thing, from twist-,  ing the lion's tail to selecting the  details of a new uniform and checking the household   bills.   That is  one reason for the hopeless muddle  of Turkish affairs.    One man cannot run  an empire, and  so things  that ought to be done, even  tilings  that the sultan desires to be done,  lie on  the  shelf   for  months and  years,  until intrigue and bribery  bring them before the  royal notice  at some odd moment.  There is no law bub the sultan's  word.; The legislative council is  nominated by himself, and the  council does what it is told.  ���Justice is a travesty. In its ideas  of public morality Turkey is  purely oriential. .fudges and officials buy their places and they  have to get their money back somehow. They never get it from the  sultan. "We lost," said a Levantine litigant; "but that was he-*  cause the judge was bribed." "And  what shall you do?" "Take it to  appeal, amLbripe the judge ".there..'''���  The whole system reeks with cor"  rnptson. There are three possible  careers open to'the Turk. He may  join tiie governing class, he may be-.  . come an officer in- the army, or he  " may go on the land���a person of no  account. He has neither the head  nor the heart for trade. The officials and the soldiers may get their  pay, or they may hot���probably  not.   Tliey must live.  The officials swindle the sultan  and tho people; the sultan swindles  everybody. There .is a sort of  rough balance about it .wliiclr enables the officials to live. Some  grow rich. The people are bled  without having a chance to bleed  anybody in tuiri, and swift vengeance follows on the murmur of  discontent.  Constantinople is full of spies. A  disavowal word or the hint of; a  movement for reform is promptly  reported to the sultan. Then, at  =tlro=elq)ellieTrtT^  is quietly carried off to jail aud his  friends see him no more. Whether  he is in a filthy dungeon or his  body is racing down the Bosphorus  :becomes a matter of interesting  speculation to be discussed in private.  The wily Turk knows a good  thing when he sees it. Therefore  ho turns tho system to legitimate  profit. In the remote corners of  the empire an officer longing for  his unpaid salary will dream that  lie has evidence .of,- disaffection  against the rich men "of the'place.  Ho puts a few of them into jail and  keeps them there until they pay a  ransom according to their means.  Whilo the state becomes poor the  Sultan becomes rich. After the  Sultan, the officials. Say that you  waut to buy a plot of land. You  ngreo as to a price; you pay the  money over, and then buyer and  seller go to the government offices-  to complete the transfer.. The seller proves that the land was his;  the buyer proves that he has bought;  and the buyer is at once confirmed  iu his title. It is a relic of Byzantine custom with a touch of French  law granted on "it; and it is far  simpler than our English' system.  When it is over the; official asks  you the price. Yon gave ��500. He  knows it.iis well as you do; but the  record price governs the transfer  duty aud the subsequent taxes. He  suggests that ho shall write down  ��200���for a consideration���and you  agree.  You pay a. smaller duty���swindle  number one. The basis of taxation  is lower than it ought to bo���swindle number two. The valuers come  und agree, for taxation purposes,  upon ri sum which i.s a compromise  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Established in Nelson in 1890.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, TJ. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  .between the nominal value and the  real���swindle number three. Naturally the valuers get their bribe.  They also must live. In the end  you have escaped extortion by  three separate swindles. Everybody else does it, and so must you.  If you don't you would pay more  than your due proportion, for low  assessments mean high i*ates. Furthermore the first assessment is  final; there is 110 chance of redress  in Turkey.  Wholesale and Retail  Success  DEPENDS  in Business.  ON HOW YOU BUY  Wholesale and Retail  He Was Going.  St. Paul Dispatch.  It was a one-horse wagon loaded  with boxes and barrels, and the  driver suddenly turned into the  curb and got down and stood off a  few feet and looked earnestly at  the horse. Four or five pedestrians  came to a halt and one of them  promptly called out: ,.  ��� ' '  " That horse has got a chill and  you ought to unhitch him!"  "It's a ease of bots," added a  second.  "He's got the blind staggers, or  I don't know anything about  horses," put in a third.  The four or five pedestrians grew  to five or ten, aud ten to twenty or  thirty.  "He's balky. - ch?" queried a fat  man, as he forced his:way into the  crowd.  "Holler in his ear!" shouted a boy  who was iip on balky .-horses.  ���'All you fellers get hold and push  the wagin!" commanded a citi/.en,  who appeared to be a born leader  of men.  The crowd grew to fifty, eighty,  one hundred and the street was  blocked. Men examined the wheels  on the wagon, the feet of the horse  and the harness. The driver stood  there with lines and whip in hand,  and said nothing and made no move  uutil a policeman forced his way  into the crowd and excitedly asked:  '���Now, then, what's all this about?  What's the matter here?"  . J,'.Nuthin,I' was the calm.reply.  ?'Horse sick ?"  "Naw."  "Then; why don't you go on ?"  "I'm goin'."  And he put his foot on the hub  of a front wheel and sprang to his  seat and drove off at a sharp trot,  and all the wondering crowd said  as it looked after him was :  "I thought so all the time."

The department in each  case has notified the claimants that  as yet it has not taken up for consideration the method of collecting  such indemnities and has supplied  them with the regular circular containing information as to the means  of filing claims.

According to statistics   compiled  by the Silverton Silvertonian,   the  mines that ship from points on Slocan lake have produced and shipped  32S9 tons of ore since January 1st,  1900. The Bosun shipped S00 tons,  Hartney 20, Capella'7, ISmily Edith  20, Hewett 75, Vancouver 100,  Wakefield 6S0 tons concentrates,  Galena Mines "20, Enterprise 900,  Neepawa 7, Arlington 410, Black  Prince 00, Kilo 20, arid Two Friends  20.' The ore was worth about  $300,000.  RAILWAY AND STEAMBOAT  A Change in-Time.  , Yesterday at . midnight a new  time card went into effect on the  C. P. R.- system, aud the changes  affecting Nelson are of a radical  nature. The schedule as arranged  i.s practically the same as was in  force last winter, and the changes  from the summer system is as follows: The morning" train for Slocan  points will leave in future at 9  o'clock instead of 7:30, the Robson,  Rossland and Boundary train will  depart at 8 o'clock a. m. instead of  3:30 p. m., as before, the train for  Robson, Rossland and the Pacific  coast will leave at 0:40 p. m. instead  of 7:10 a. m., as formerly, while the  steamer for Kootenay Landing.now  leaves at 5 a. m. instead of 10:30 p.  m. No change has been made on  the Kaslo steamer, which will depart at 4 p. m. and arrive at 11  a. m. as before. An equally sweeping change has been brought into  force in connection wifch the arrival  of trains. The Slocan train 'now  comes in at 2:40 p. m. instead of  7:30, the Rossland and Boundary  pulls iu at 11:35 a. m. instead of 0:45  p. .'m., the Rossland and Pacific  coast train gets to Nelson at 10:10  p. m. instead of 30:35 a. m., and the  steamer from Kootenay Landing is  now due here at 5 p. m. instead of  2:30 a. m.  Only one steamer is required to  handle Crow's Nest business under  the new schedule and the Nelson  will be withdrawn from the run.  For a few days she will make a  daily trip to Kaslo while the Kokanee ties up for miuor repairs. After  the Kokanee resumes her run, the  Nelson will be used as a handy boat  about the port. The C. P. R. towing fleet is at present unable to do  the work required of it. During  the recent weeks the Crow's Nest  boats have helped, out in towing  during the time they laid over here  after each trip. The Moyie ,will  not be able to do this in the future  and the NelsonGwill be utilized for  towing unless business slacks up.  The reverse is expeeted, however,  and it is probable the craft will be  in active commission for several  months.  seven engines are running out of  Nelson, and it is generally believed  that in the Ordinary course of  events the building will have to be  enlarged by this time next year.  Enginesto be Placed Today.  The engines for the new C. P. R.  tug will be unloaded at the shipyard today and the work of placing  them in position will probably be  commenced this week. The task is  one of the most delicate operations  in the construction of the craft.  If the weight is a fraction of an  inch to one side equilibrium of the  tug will be seriously disturbed, and  to avoid this exhaustive calculations are made before the machinery is moved.  Robert Armstrong of Illecille-  waet has taken over the dispatchers key at the C. P. R. depot vice  Thomas Henderson who will take  another position on the line. Mr.  Henderson is one of the most popular railroad men in Nelson and has  made a host of friends in the city.  The contractor who was' taking  out rock near,Robson for the Columbia bridge" has thrown up his  contract and gone back to Winnipeg. Apparently he had taken the  contract at Winnipeg prices and  failed to make both ends meet.  mU_W  Blew In Yesterday.  The Hall Mines smelter blew in  yesterday after a brief shut down  caused by failure of water supply  and other minor causes. - The  smelter has .now connected direct  with the city water system and  while they do not anticipate having to fall back on this source are  assured of ari'abiindant supply of  water should any ..contingency - interfere with the ordinary supply.  The blowing iii .process was satis-  factorily^accomplishedrand .with, a  large stock ahead of coal, lime and  ore the smelter will be run close to  its capacity for several months at  least. The construction of the mechanical roaster is progressing  slowly but surely.  �� PERSONAL.  Business Increasing.  Freight business .on the lines op-  ~eratin"g"iirth"e~Nels6n"district"is"betT  ter today than has been the case  for a couple of years and the class  of business is of the variety that  grows constantly. The big Boundary properties which have commenced shipping have made a  marked difference in freight traffic,  the Rossland output is gaining in  magnitude with the prospect of  much greater improvement in the  near future and a steady stream of  ore is flowing into tho Nelson smelter. The latter item will be much  larger when the smelter blows in  again. The outlook for business  was never better. Within a couple  o�� months the list of shipping mines  will be lengthened by the addition  of several important properties of  the Mollie Gibson, Ivanhoe, Silver  Hill and Emily Edith class. All  this brings grist to the railroad mill  and incidentally interests the whole  community.  New Freight Shed.  It is stated that the contract for  the new C. P. R.  freight shed has  been awarded  to H. G.  Creelman,  who   is  now building the roundhouse afc the depot.    Some minor  changes   in   the   plans   are   beiug  made by the engineering staff, but  work is expected to commence in a  few days, as the   contractor will  naturally be anxious to take advantage   of   the few   weeks  of   good  weather before the snow flies.   Excellent progress is being made with  the engine house, aud the probability is that the big stable will be  ready for the iron occupants before  the date called for in the contract.  In designing the building accommodation has been provided for eight  locomotives.   Atthe present time  ,E. Nelson Fell returned on Saturday from a trip to the Boundary country.'  Charles A.

It consists entirely of  colored performers, who have been  identified from the start with the  initial success of th'e play at the  Great Northern theatre, Chicago.  The plot is a simple one: A  stranded theatrical company succeeds in landing an. "angel," one  major Wayback, who desires, after  having received proof of the ability  of the compauy. to take them to  Honolulu to entertain prince Malakii  of the Hawaiian Islands.
