William Alperson, Representing the Richmond Company,
Visits Nelson After a Long Absence.
AVilliam Alperson, one of the pioneer mining operators ol' Kootenay,
is iu Nelson renewing old acquaintances .- and  incidentally looking "up
tlio interests of the Richmond Mining   Company   of   New   York,   of
wliich  he is vice president.    "Bill,"
as he was familiarly called  by all
the'-old-timers yesterday, has covered a good deal of the globe since
his  last visit  to Nelson.    Ho came
■to  Kootenay in 1S89, when  Nelson
was   playing  second fiddle to the
old town of Ainsworth, and acting
with Steve Bailey, whose' "name is
inseparably   associated   with    the
Payne   mine   in   the  Slocan, ■purchased  tho Dollie   property in   the
Ainsworth cam p.    The vendors  of
the Dfillie used  to tell  Iioav Alperson   did   them   up   on- the Dellie
deal, but   Bill   and    his   partners
have   not   yet   realized  anything.
They spent   about   $25,000 on the
property, which is now owned by
an incorporated company, and  expect some day to get all their money
back.      Another    property   whicli
Alperson   purchased  in   the Ainsworth   camp was , the Jeff Davis.
This he purchased upon the day the
claim was located, and afterwards
spent $7000 in development. Saving
the returns  upon  a carload  shipment of Jeff Davis ore, none of the
expenditure upon this  venture has
returned, but Alperson is confident
that it-is .-only a  matter * of time,
lie regards the Jeff Davis as  the
greatest-property of the Ainsworth.
oanfyyarid'iscoiifident that his pre'-r
diction will-be realized.
Mr. Alperson-has had his ups.and
downs-like?most mining men, but is
now-on easy street, and spent
$14,00.Q_some two years ago. in seeing what the people on the Euro-'
pean continent looked like.    Since
"his... return, he has carried on a
mining broker's business in New
\*"orky\where he is now located.
Here the Richmond Mining Company was\formed, in which some
very wealthy eastern men are interested, anil in which Bill was
named as vice-president. The company hit upon the Windermere district of East Ko'otenay as the most
promising district to prospect, and
its efforts in this direction have
been eminently successful. It is
Mr. Al person's aim" to build the
Richmond Company up.into a rival
of tbe Anaconda'. Copper Cohipanjv
cess in the "Windermere district his
dream is-in a fair way of realization. He lias just returned from
East Kootenay, and the story of
success which he tells is sufficient
foundation upon which to build almost any hope in the mining world.
Among the properties which his
company now control are tho Morning Glory group of two claims, located on Toby creek about 22 miles
from the Columbia river. The vein
on this property as shown up for
200 feet is about 10 feet wide and
assays 19 per cent in copper, $5 in
gold and H) ounces silver, One mile
nearer the Columbia on the same
creek is the Monarch and Majestic
property. Upon this the vein has
been stripped for 1500 feet, with
cuts 12 feet deep. This work has
disclosed a vein 10 feet wide from
which assays have been' secured
showing 7 per cent copper and 32
ounces silver.
The Silver Pass and Silver Peak
properties, however, aro what Alperson regards as the most valuable
of i his company's holdings. These
.properties are located on McDonald creek, about 35 miles from the
Columbia river. It is a silver-lead
property, upon which development
has disclosed a ledge carrying 2h
feet of solid galena, assaying 71
ounces in silver and 20 per cent
lead. Along the side of the galena
is also a six-foot body of decomposed quartz carrying good lead
values. This vein has been developed to a depth of 14 feet, and
traced for 400 feet. It is an adjoining claim to the Iron Cap and Red
Line, now being developed by Col-
lett and Starbird, upon which some
15 men are employed.   Thie so far
is regarded as the biggest thing in
"Windermere, but it has no advantage over .the Silver Pass and Silver
Peak. The Richmond Company
owns one-half of these properties,
and for the remaining half Alperson last week offered $8000 in cash
and $200,000 "in stock, biit the offer
was refused.
Among the other properties secured by the company are the
Moonlight and Daylight on No. 1
creek, some 22 miles from the Columbia river. They have been developed to a depth of 40 feet. The
vein upon them is 4Jt feet wide and
gives assays of from $10.00 to
$19 gold, with 17 ounces silver and
a uniform assay of 7 per cent, copper.. The Pasco is another property which has been secured by
the Richmond Company. It is located some 000 . feet , above the
Morning Glory aud has a'-.S} foot
vein which has been developed to a
depth of 19 feet. It carries pyrites
of copper, samples of which show 9
per cent, copper, $9 gold and 8
ounces silver. The ledge has been
opened for the full length of the
Speaking generally of the "Windermere district, Mr. Alperson says
that from the tshowings his company has it is destined to be a very
busy mining center.   The showings
|'on his company's holdings are sufficient to warrant this, and what his
company holds is but a very small
fraction   of   the  holding of   individual miners.   What is necessary,
however, to secure the development
of   the   district   is to secure   the
-transfer of the,properties..from the
present holders wlio are unable to
work them to companies who can.
The Deal Closed.
< An * announcement - was .. made
yesterday that the Fletcher gronp
at Whitewater had been taken up
by the syndicate recently formed
by Charles Plowman in England. A
substantial payment was made at
Kaslo yesterday, thereby closing
the deal. The bonding of the
Fletcher group was one of the most
rapid mining transactions on record.
From the time that the documents
were signed at Kaslo to the date of
the first payment only 21 days
elapsed, Mr ."Plowman." crossing the
Atlantic in the meantime and forming his syndicate. This is an indication that the confidence of
English capitalists in British Columbia's mineral properties - is unimpaired. The deal was made on the
The group comprises five claims
about one mile from the Whitewater mine and a mile and a half
from the Kaslo & Slocan railroad.
A splendid trail leads into the
camp aiul a comfortable cabin,
large enough to accommodate a
small crew, is on the ground. The
ore is free milling. There is a fine
showing, the ore ranging from
eighteen inches to three feet in
width and stripped for 700 feet.
A number of assays have been
had, in all cases high gold values
having been obtained. An average
assay from the property is about
$50; while assays have been had as
high as $127. New buildings are
being erected and it is the1 inteu-
tion of the new owners to proceed with development on a comprehensive scale. The work to
date has given satisfactory results.
A tunnel has been driven on the
vein exposing a solid body of ore
two feet in width, from which a
series of assays gave an average of
$05 in gold. Jt i.s proposed to drift
on the lead for 500 feet when a
depth?uf 390,feet will be secured.
The Fletcher group cannot, be excelled for ease of access and experts
have given the opinion that it is
likely to become a large producer,
and in view of the program outlined by the syndicate this will
probably be achieved at an early
Bonded Lardeau Property.
The Imperial Development Syndicate of Nelson closed a deal yesterday for a bond on a promising
Lardeau property. The syndicate
acquires the group including the
Highland Mary, Eva, Last Chance
and Iron Dollar claims on Lexington . mountain at the junction of
Poole and Fish creeks. The property is free-milling, carrying free
gold and has several paystreaks
from which assays ranging .into
hundreds of dollars have been obtained. As a whole the group is
medium grade free-milling, but the
unusually large ore bodies give it
exceptional merit. The lead is from-
six to fifty feet in width with values distributed throughout. The
bond is drawn on a cash basis, a
substantial price being paid by the
syndicate. Some work has been
done on the group, arid it is the intention of the company to put on a
crew of men at once. A. H. Gracey
and several directors left for Lardeau last night to go over the
property. ','■•■ <

Madrid, October 17.—General
Linares to whom the Premier,
Senor Silva, has offered the portfolio of war, stipulates as a condition of acceptance that heshall have
perfect freedom t6 introduce
sweeping military reforms and
to reorganize the entire army.
He also stipulates that his
method of reaching those ends must
rest solely with himself. Senor
Silva, it is understood, has signi
fied his acceptance, of the conditions, and the nomination of general Linares is therefore practically
assured.    . ^_

Chicago, October. 17. — Johnny
Nelson, tho middle distance bicycle
champion, cut 32 1-5 seconds off the
world's indoor motor paced record
for 15 miles at the Coliseum tonight

Anent' Buller's Recall.
London, October J ti.—Under re-,
serve the'Daily Express published a
report that general sir Redvers
Buller had been summoned from
South Africa to suceee'cUord'Wolseley as commander-in-chief, - lord

Hong Kong, October 17.—Advices
from Canton say it us reported there
that Sun Yat Sen, the reformer,
captured Hui. Chow last Monday.
The Cantonese assert that if Hui
Chow, which resisted the insurgents
in the Tai Ping .rebellion, falls, the
rebels will be able' to take Canton
within a week.  * .%■
Admiral Ho, -with the bulk of his
forces, left Sam China this morning

Russians Had No Easy Thing.
St. Petersbuucj, t.Ojptpber 17.—.
Detailed reportsto-the war office of-
the occupation of Mukden, Manchuria, show that the Russians met
with strong opposition at Schacho,
where the Chinese with-thirty battalions, twenty field guns, Krupps
and Maxims, occupied the railway
embankment and heights. The
fighting continued from 9 in the
morning until 1 in the afternoon.
After artillery preparations, the
whole Russian column was thrown
against the Chinese, who by eveniug were in full retreat. Next day
the Chinese made a stubborn stand
in a strong position in the' mountains. The position was captured
at noon, but the Russians were unable to pursue-tiie Chinese owing to
extreme fatigue and: the difficult
nature of the country. The ^Russians, in the course of the two days'
operations, lost fifty killed and
wounded.   Thej' captured  several
.guns.=^     ■        __=__^t_. —L-~__
Suffering From Beri Beri.
Falmouth, England, October 17.
—The Norwegian bark Brilliant
from .Newcastle, New Brunswick,
today landed at this port with
eight seamen suffering from beri
beri and the body of one man who
had died from the disease, all of
whom had been taken from the
Norwegian bark Homewood, which
was spoken by the Brilliant on October 8th in aAvaterlogged condition
in latitude 48 north and longitude
25 west. Captain Potter and six of
the crew of the Homewood refused
to leave the vessel. The Homewood
will proceed for Havre. The Norwegian bark Homewood is of 1020
tons net. She was built at St.
John, New. Brunswick, in 1874, and
is owned by John Johnson of Cliris-
tiauia. ' '
Important Capture.
Manila, October 17.—Under cover
of a stormy night captain Elliott
of the Forty-ninth infantry surprised the rebels' headquarters near
Oroquita, island of Mindanao, and
captured without fighting general
Alvarez with In"!' staff '.Mid twenty-
five soldiers.     ;
The capture is important aud
will tend to pacify the district.
Alvarez had for a long time been
provoking hostilities in Mindanao.
It was he who effected the disastrous attack on Oroquita some time
ago, and he was preparing for another wheu he was captured. Detachments of the Twenty-sixth and
Eighteenth regiments engaged the
rebels near Tunbungan, in southern
Panay, routing them, killing 20 and
wounding many.
The Labor  Candidate Fills the Committee  Rooms and
Makes a Spirited Address.
"We must show the government
of Canada that the laboring men of
this country will  no.t, tamely submit to surrender their birthright to
the Orientals   who   are swarming
across the Pacific ocean !"  was the
concluding sentence of   candidate
Foley's address at the Independent
Labor party's rally last night, and
the words epitomize the sentiments
which underlaid his  remarks from
start to finish.     The   erection   of
legislative barriers against Oriental
and pauper immigration is evidently
to be the slogan of Mr. Foley's campaign, and the idea found a hearty
endorsation "judging from the warm
applause whicli greeted its elaboration.
The committee room was packed
to the doors, and the gathering was
enthusiastic. C. J. Clayton, president of the Trades and Labor
Council, presided, and brief speeches
were made, by James Wilks and
Walter R. Kee, secretary of the
campaign committee in Nelson.
Candidate Foley was well received'and made a stirring speech.
In opening, he said he would endeavor to show why the Labor party
had entered the political arena.
They had crossed the rubicoh and
burned their bridges behind. The
light was on in earnest, and he
hoped every man would consider
the contest his personal struggle
rather than that of any candidate.
He was an implicit believer in the
axiom laid down by- the famous
Jefferson:; "All men are born, free
and equal," but Jefferson' did not
realize that in 135 or 140 years the
work of the revolutionary fathers
would be practically undone. Corporation greed was getting the
upper hand in the United States,
and in Canada we were
drifting along the same channel as
the Americans and would shortly
arrive in the same harbor. It was
therefore essential for labor to safeguard against such a result by taking independent political action.
He believed that as labor constituted an immense majority of the
electorate it should the conceded
protection against aliens. As citizens liable to be called out in event
of war they should be guarded
against the importation of the ignorant foreign element brought into the country with a view of reducing the Canadian workingman
to the level of the   native   of   the
countries from whicli-"they —come.
The same reasoning applied to this
as might be used against piling
passengers into an open boat already filled to the water-mark. Labor organization could do nothing
by boycott or strike in the face of
constantly arriving hordes of Chinamen, Japanese or foreigners from
the downtrodden European countries. The mechanical ingenuity of
man had Avrought a revolution in
tho last 50 years, but the advantage had accrued to the few and
these were using the power thus
obtained for the damnable end of
securing political supremacy by
bribing or coercing governments.
The press had become the mouthpiece of monopolists, while the military strength of the country had
been transferred to the industrial
aristocracy. The militia was utilized to tie the hands of labor while
the cannery princes robbed the
The cry was raised that labor
must learn to respect the law aiid
he agreed with this, but held that
the law should be the same for all.
Industrial corporations coerced
their employees forcing them to
live in company boarding houses,
trade at company stores, refrain
from speaking what tliey thought
in public and even forcing men to
lie in the witness box lest they
should lose their, jobs. Despite this
coercion, the laboriug man was decried when he endeavored to retaliate. The authorities did little
to discourage coercion on the part
of corporations. Witness what
happened in the Sudbury nickel
mines when the miners wished to '
form a union as had been attempted
on several occasions.    Every time a
miners' union represen tati ve entered
Sudbury   he was shadowed by a
detective   and   every   man  found
speaking to the delegate was discharged, blacklisted and turned on
the world with the mark of industrial  Cain  oh  his forehead.     The
^government  should have put the
sleuth hounds  of the  law on  the
track of these industrial coercion-
ists, but they did nothing. When the
laboring   men. grew restive under
the injustice meted out to them and
sought to retaliate the mailed hand
of the warrior was stretched out
and the  people were crushed beneath the  iron heel of militarism,
or buried in a dungeon by the cold
and unrelenting hand of the law.
The laboring men had begun to
realize that nothing was to be expected from the old political parties.   They had lots of sympathy
and a wilderness of promises, but
no practical relief.    The leaders of
the Conservative ' party had cut-
lived their usefulness and had written across the -. path of   progress:
"No thoroughfare here."   To adapt
Ingersoll to the situation he would
say: "Sir Charles * Tupper and his
colleagues are old, blind political
owls occupying dead limbs on the-
tree of   progress and hooting.the
same old hoots they had hooted for
thirty-five years.   [Laughter.]   The
-protective tariff, originally intended
to benefit all classes,' had' worked to
build up gigaptic monopolies, while
an open door for cheap labor had
forced-down the price.,of. labor as
low, if not lower, than would liave.
been the case without a protective
-tariff."- /The Conservatives had built
the.C. P. R., but at what an awful
cost?   Canada paid $110,000,000 iu
cash and lands, and the country had
not a single spike from Vancouver to
Montrealtoshowforthe outlay. The
Conservatives were quoted as the
greatest   friends   of the   working
men, but it was a fact that they
allowed 8000 Chinamen to be imported to work on the Onderdonk
contract.   These Orientals were to
haA-e'been deported but were, instead, allowed to flood the country,
destroying the labor market,driving
white men out of" the mines, the
farms, the fisheries and the canneries.    The tide of Orientals were
driving the white man further back
into the hills  every  day and  this
•would'-continue until the white man
was caught by the current of cheap
foreign   labor   from  tho  east and
crushed beneath theopposiug forces.;
and it was best to keep it in  the
grave.   ...'.■-,
Turning to the Liberals, Mr.
Foley said that while the party
contained many good frieuds of the
working men,' there were two or
three incidents in which sir Wilfrid
Laurier had proved that he was not
an honest friend of labor. For instance, the importation of men
from Michigan during the recent
strike was well known. Petition
after petition was sent to the premier urging, him to enforce tlio
Alien Labor Act, but itAvas not until the mine owners had accomplished their purpose that a man
came to Rosslaiid and secretly notified the mine owners that the importation of alien labor must cease.
Then when the men employed in
the salmon fisheries struck, Japan-
es6 imported for that express purpose were used to fill all vacancies,
and Canadians were compelled to
submit to this usurpation of an inferior foreign race by the military.
Up to tho present the laboring
men had fed on crumbs and their
political stomachs revolted. Now
they proposed to secure a better
diet and before they were through
would make Premier Laurier dish
up the best in liis pantry. (Laughter.).
As to his opponents in the campaign Mr. Foley had fow personal
criticisms to make, save that both
were lawyers. He did not like
lawyers aud particularly criticized
Mr. MacNeill because of the company the latter kept. A feature of
the Conservative hippodrome in
the riding was Mayor Goodeve of
Rossland, a serpent  in the  grass.
Mayor Goodeve was the man who

Men Were Out a" Month.
Philadelphia," October 17.—The,-1
great strike of the anthracite/miner
workers of Pennsylvania, which began September 17, practically ended .
today,   when the   Philadelphia &
Reading Coal & Iron Company and ,
the   Lehigh Valley  Coal Company
agreed to abolish the  scale in their .
respective regions and- to grant au.
advance  in wages of  10 per cent,",'
the advance to remain in operation
until April,   1901, and'.'thereafter.'
This action meets  the demands of
the Scranton   miners'  convention.1
The decision was arrived at after
a conference between representatives of the individual coal operators and * tho large coal carrying
companies. The conference began
yesterday. Today's action was the
culmination of tho recent meeting
of the individual operators at Scranton following the mine workers',
convention in the same city.
Nearly all of the collieries in. the
coal regions had previously to the
mine workers'   convention   posted
notices granting an advance  of   10
per   cent.   The   mine   workers   in
considering this demanded that the
sliding scale   in   the   Lehigh   and
Schuylkill   districts   be   abolished,
th'e increase, to be   guaranteed   until April 1, 1901, and all other   differences to be submitted to arbitration.      Tho   individual    operators
agreed, to everything and ' the   appointment of a   committee   to   induce the Heading and Lehigh  companies to abolish the   sliding   scale
and make the wage increase permanent followed.
Just how soon the official order
notifying the men that the strike
is ended and to return to work will
be issued by president Mitchell can " j
only be conjectured. It is the belief here that the order to return"
will not bo issued until a notice
similar to or in line with that of
the Reading and Lehigh companies
is posted,, at all the mines.

The  Tribune will, therefore, not be  published on Friday morning.   The , Semi- Weekly Industrial,  World of Rossland and the. Evening  Miner of Nelson are of one opinion.  The former is said to be the official  organ of the Western Federation  of Miners in this province,- and is  owned by the Miners' Union of  Kossland; the latter is the official  organ ot the Mine Owners'As9ocia-  * tions and is owned by Hugh Sutherland of Toronto. When the one  was fighting for Smith Curtis, as  the embodiment of all that is pure  and potential in politics, the other  was denouncing the members of  Miners'    Unions    who . supported  j Curtis as anarchists and thugs.  Now these two journals are  battling against the common  enemy; but if the Industrial  World has no more influence at  Kossland than the Miner has at  Nelson, the enemy will not be  badly injured. '  " It eaniiot be denied that the  " postponement of the Yale-Cariboo  " election for two weeks will give a  " decided advantage to.which ever  " party wins in the east." The  words quoted above are from the  Nelson Economist, an orthodox  Conservative newspaper. The  Kcouomist will now be read out of  the grand old party for daring to  express views that are not in accord  with those who, in times past, have  considered themselves   entitled to  the right to do the thinking for all  the men who call themselves Conservatives.       Some   of   the   spellbinders do not take  kindly  to the  idea that the people of Yale-Cariboo  can best be served by a member of  parliament who is in  accord   with  tho  party  in   power.    ,Of course,  these spellbinders are sticklers after  principles;     principle    alone   controls   all     tlieir    actions,    but    it  i-     difficult     to     make     common  everyday    business    men    believe  any such twaddle.    This is a practical nge, and tho people want men  in oflice who can accomplish  something.       What  has  either   "Tom"  Rarle   or   "colonel"   Prior   accomplished for British Columbia during  tlio years that the Laurier goA'ernment   has   been in   ollice?   What  could Aulay Morrison or "Kill" Galliher accomplish for the province in  the next five years.were Hugh John  Macdonald to carry the country on  November 7th?   It will be argued  by a few that there are principles  at stake.    The average man can see  little difference between the principles   of   the   two  parties.     The  Liberals   out   of   office were   free  traders.    In office they are protectionists, for they found  that the  government could not be carried on  successfully by any other system  of taxation than the one that had  been     adopted     by     the      Conservatives. Conservatives     out  of     office     are      shouting     "re-  (renchnient."      Vet were  they   to  gain office they would find that in  a   country growing as  Canada is  growing, the government expenditures must of necessity increase as  the   business   of   the  country expands.    For taking a practical view  of these questions, The Tribune is  denounced by the spellbinders of  both the Conservative and the Lib;  eral parties; but as The Tribune is  an independent newspaper,' it cannot change its views as readily as  spellainderscan,their drinks or pol-^  iticians their principles;  Canada paid six millions, of dollars  less in customs taxation than they  would, have done had the Conservative tariff of 1800 remained in force,  a reduction equal to very nearly $1  for every man, woman and child in  the Dominion, a reduction that  means that every man, woman and  child has had an extra dollar to  spend. This i.s a very appreciable  reduction, the yards of editorial  aforesaid notwithstanding.  Favors the United States.  Lon'mon, October 17.���At the  meeting of the Chartered Bank of  India, Australia and China today  the president referred to the bank's  important interests in tho Philippines, and said he viewed with  equanimity the transfer of the  islands to the United States, as he  anticipated that Anglo-Saxon vigor  would create a strong government,  crush the rebellion and foster commerce.

MEALS  GENTS  ROOMS LIGHTED BY ELECTRICITY  AND HEATED BY STEAM  s  PLATFORM  Adopted by the Liberal-Conservative Parly in Convention  at Revelstoke, September 15th, 1900  We, the delegates of the Liberal-Conservative party of Yale-Cariboo  constituency, in convention assembled, reaflirm the principles of the  party, and more particularly that cardinal principle, protection to home  industries, and that that principle be carried out so that all sections of  the cdtmtry. shall equally share its benefits.  The. one industry on -which the prosperity of this constituency is  almost wholly dependent is mining ; and we believe that our mining industries are as fairly entitled to-protection as the manufacturing industries of Eastern Canada ; therefore, we advocate that the duties on lead  and lead products be in creased jso that they shall be as high as those now  imposed by the United States on the same articles.  That the output of. the precious metal mines is largely increasing,  therefore we favor tlio establishment of a mint, so that ..the specie in circulation sliall be that of our own instead of that of a foreign country.  We advocate the restriction of the-immigration, of Chinese and Japanese, and all classes who cannot become good citizens .of the Dominion  of Canada, and suggest the adoption of the principles of the Natal Act.  British Columbia lias not now the representation in the federal parliament that she is entitled to: therefore we advocate that When the-  redistribution of seats is made that this constituency shall be given representation according to its population.  That it augurs well ��� for the success of tho party that Hugh John  Macdonald has decided to leave the field of provincial politics to take  part in the larger one that affects the people of the whole of Canada.

SERVANT GIRLS  DECEIVED  Left Penniless in Winnipegr  TiasL .spring it was decided to  si-lid someone to England, in order  (ii.'it a' number of servant girls  might be brought out for the people  of the Northwest, says the AVinnipeg Telegram, ancl W. F. McCreary,  , commissioner of immigration, sent  n a lady by the name of Mrs. Ellen  Sanford. A number of people, who  were iu want of servants, paid Mrs.  Sanford $30 apiece for the passage  money of the girl which would be  kept from them. Mrs. Sanford left  this city some time during May-and  started to get girls in Ireland, and  it then went to Scotland aud England.  From time to time she wrote to Mrs.  McCreary, telling of the success she  was meeting with. On August oth  .she returned to this city and most  of the girls she brought were given  employment.  Beatrice Lavelle, one of those  who came out with Mrs. Sanford, is  now in the city and gives the following account of her experiences:  "I had a good position in England  and was visited one day by Mrs.  Sanford. She asked me -if .1.-would  like to go to Canada. I said "I  would, but did not want to leave  the situation I then had. She offered rae a position-iu a fruit store  at Pincher Creek if I cared,to come.  All she required me to do was to  , give her ��0 ($29.10) for an intermediate , passage to. Winnipeg... .By  leaving without .giving sufficient  notice to my employers I" forfeited  three weeks' wages. I was ��� to sail  by thej jbake ���. Champlain. - -When- J  gob on. board. I saw Mrs. Sanford;  aiid asked, her to show me to my  berth. She said she had not time  , then, and.gave the. same answer to  a number of the other girls who  had made ���the same request. -Before we went on board I under-  . stand that this woman had told all  the girls that she was not connected with any immigration office,  and that she was paying her own  expenses. She certainly told me  f.his. In addition she said that she  would travel with the-girls. - I  shall never forget that passage;1 It  v?frs lawful. With some rough  boards cattle pens were made into  berths for us on. the lower deck.  "The smell was terrible and I was  I obliged to spend most of my time  on deck.

Tea   was   served   in   a  I large bowl, into whicli we   had to  dip our cups.   The food was served  iii the same way.   There, was a terrible light for soap, but I was more  1 fortunate than the Vest, for I had a  j small piece on the fourth day out  j,nd kept it concealed for   my own  use for the rest of the voyage.   No;  I jilrs. Sanford did not travel in   this  way, as,sho had told us she would.  She went saloon.   I was tliankfuj  when we reached  Montreal,  as   I  thought my troubles oyer, but they  were not.   Mrs. Sanford had a greed  to feed us on   the   train,   but   we  hardly had enough to   keep. body  and   soul   together.     During   the  whole trip I did riot taste any milk.  JAt last we   arrived   at   Winnipeg  I after experiencing a terrible time.  jUpon getting off the train here we  (were marched to the immigration  j hall and given breakfast. It was  Ithere I asked Mrfi. Sanford about  jthe situation she had promised me  ���in the fruit store at Pincher Creek.  |1 was informed that it was' can-  Belled and I must get   a   place   for  [myself^ '  "There was I, left in a strange  [city,with neither money nor friends.

Mrs. Sanford managed to get  Ihold of my trunk and held it for  ���repayment of my passage money,  jl did not get a situation according  Ito her agreement with me so I did  Jnot think she was entitled to it.  [She held my trunk for over a mouth  land only after several threats, of  [Jegal proceedings did she give it up.

"Winter is coming," said the man  in charge of an express elevator in  one of the skyscrapers in lower  Broadway.  As he spoke he wiped the perspiration from his brow with a dirty  handkerchief,and the winter seemed  far off indeed.  "Why don't you ask me if it's  warm enough for me?" growled the  grumpy tenant; "or whether I  wouldn't like to be the iceman?"  "I didn't mean it that way at all,  sir," said the elevator man. respectfully. "I was just wouderin' how  inany of us would go next winter."  "Go! C4o where?" asked the  grumpy man. "Don't they run as  many elevators in winter as in summer?"  "Lord, yes!" was the answer. "I  didn't mean that we'd lose our jobs,  but that some of ns will go where  we won't want any jobs. We're a  doomed lot, we elevater people, and  no one seems to have noticed it." .  "I don't understand how that is,"  said, the grumpy man. "You have  almost no accidents now, with yoirV  electric brakes aud safety catches,"  "Did you ever hear of elevator  consumption?" asked tho elevator  man. "That's what is the matter  jwith us. Tt comes from shooting  Tip and down these draughty shafts  foi1 twelve hours a ' day.

Got His Blankets.  Sam Gormley, of Ymir,  is registered at the Madden.    He spent   his  first day iu Nelson in  bucking   the  N. & F. S.   railway   company   and  succeeded in   doing   ifc.   When   he  bought liis ticket he had liis blankets   checked   through   to   Nelson.  When he   called   at   the   baggage  room he was referred to   the   company's up-town office. Here he was referred to the oflice of a local transfer company,  where he   was   confronted with a demand for twenty-  five cents before the blankets would  be   released.    Gormley,is the   kind  of a man who will pay five   dollars  for   defence   before   he   will   pay  twenty-five cents   iu   tribute.    He  was entitled to the blankets   without paying the twenty-five cents so  he engaged Galliher &   Wilson   to  secure them for him. They killed  two birds with one stone getting  the blankets and the five dollars  and Gormley considers it money  well spent.  EIGHTEEN MONTHS IN JAIL  Yesterday's Court Proceedings.  At yesterday's session of the  assizes Fred Kettner, a German  prospector, was sentenced to  eighteen months' imprisonment for  obtaining mouejr under false pretences in connection withamining  deal, liis partner, Fred Frederick,  was found not guilty and discharged. The trial lasted .all day,  and was not concluded until 9  o'olock lasfc night, when the jury  returned with their verdict.  The fraud transpired in connection with the 'sale of a mineral  claim in tiie1. Burnt Rasiu district.  John H. Dilberger of Tacoma was  induced to'purchase the property  an the strength" of specimens which  Ketfcuer claimed to have taken from  the claim. When Dilberger visited  the claim he failed to find mineral,  hence the prosecution. A number  of letters in.German were produced  as testimony against Ketfcner, and  were translated to the court by H.  E. McDonald. Mr. justice Walkem  agreed with the verdict and censured Kettner severely for his  fraud. The prisoner defended himself stoutly, maintaining that Dilberger had perjured himself. H. A.  MacLean prosecuted and J. A. Macdonald of Rossland defeuded.  The grand jury concluded" its  work yesterday, finding 13 true  bills out of"! "Vi 'cases presented, to  them, the. exception being that.of  Regina vs Carlyle and Sutherland  arising out of the change of management in the Lode Star Mining  Company. The jurors visited the  gaol and the hospital. They were  also taken for a run over the street  car line as the guests of captain  Duncan. The jury asked to be discharged, but his honor declined to  fulfill the request on the ground  that new cases might crop up during the next week which would require their'attention. Accordingly  an adjournment was made to Monday next.  No session of court will be held  today because of the statutory holiday, but court will resume tomorrow morning, when the Albi case  will probably come up. The criminal eases will.occupy the attention  of the court well into next week.  AGREE TO PAY UNION WAGES  Ymir Mine Falls Into Line.  The wages, for mine workers in  Kootenay. has been as follows for  months: Men working in shafts,  $4; machine men, $3,50; hammers-  men, $3.25; carmen, muckers and  laborers, $3. ���. This is known as the  Slocan compromise scale, and is  now paid byj every mine working  in Slocan district, every mine in  Ainsworth district;, every mine in  Nelson district, every mine iu  Moyie district, every mine in the  Boundary district and every mine  in the Lardo district. In fact in  the two last-named districts ham-  mer3men=get^$3r50"==a=i=dayr=or=i25=  cents more than the scale. The  management of the Ymir mine, in  the Nelson district, have caused  notices to be posted at that mine  that the standard scale would be  paid, in future. This is gratifying  news to the men who work in  mines, for it means that the cause  for friction between employer and  employee is reduced to the minimum.  .',-. Conservative Rally.  The Conservatives of Nelson will  have a rally in the committee rooms  in the Houston block on Friday  night. Local men will make short  speeches, and some of them will be  worth hearing.

To  stamp it out thoroughly a line of  hose was laid and a section of hose  placed from the nearest hydrant.  'Chief Thompson and firemen  Houston and Archibald had an unpleasant experience while working  at, the fire. They took the line of  hose iuto a boat beneath the deck  of the wharf, but the craft filled  and upset throwing the trio into  eight feet of water. They escaped  none the worse for the ducking.
