 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  4  EIGHTH YEAR;  NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING OCTOBER 20 1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  fc���   "Ir^*  NINE MILE GREEK TRAIL FINISHED  Making   Easy   Access   From   the  Lake  to Promising  but Undeveloped Section.  OTHER MINING NEWS FROM  NEIGHBORING DISTRICTS  At the government office yesterday:, the accounts for. the Nine-mile  creek trail were closed up and the  crow paid off. The trail is practically, completed and runs -up. the  creek for 13 miles, affording easy  access to a section of the country  about the divide between Nine-  mile and Midge creeks, which will  probably be heard from frequently  .'from-.'this out. Seven men; were  employed on the trail for a month  and they have done good work. '  Among the properties in the district are the Rawdon', Manila and  War Eagle groups, with, other  claims, twelve or fourteen in all.  The claims are showing up well for  the amount of work on them and it  is probable that several of them  will be worked extensively next  year. .    .     ' .  The first property ���on Niue'-mile  creek is- the Rawdon group, eight  miles from the lake. It is owned  by W. Eames and J. Huff and comprises three claims. The ledge is  four to live feet in width all  well mineralized carrying copper and silver. The lead has been  opened up in four places,  and two shafts, one 30 feet and the  other 40 feet, have been sunk. The  two partners are working on the  property at the present time.  The Manila and Cougar group  comprises the- Manila, Cougar, Silver Tip, Columbia fraction, Black  ���.C!''flV�� and Silver Queen claims,  &WoAvriers being Joe Clubb, H. A.  ���IVosser,- captain Robinson, Charles  Orandon, A. H.Fischer,,.W.  Salis-  Entry "and 3": McKay.' J"Tt i's a'silv  '.le/v^'f'ciposition, with two parallel  .ledger one ��f which outcrops for  2000 feet. The main'lead is from "2  l,o -U feet in width, while the sec-  nnd "ledge ranges from twelve inches  to 2 feet. Assays from the group  ,'ini from eight ounces of silver and  Ml per cent of copper to 4S ounces  of silver and SO per cent copper,  with from a trace to $2.50 in gold.  The work on the group includes  (!2 feet of tunnelling projected to  crosscut the main lead 20 feet further in, and at a depth of 80 feet.  A second tunnel has been run sixteen feet at "another point. Joe  Clubb was in'the city yesterday in  connection with the trail construction accounts. He returns on Monday, and will erect a cabin in order  that work may be continued till  Christmas at least.  ��^The War Eagte_gigup includes  six claims owned by. Goodlad and  Blanchfield of Ymir and is regarded  as a very promising property. It  is a gold proposition carrying some  free gold and a little lead and silver.  The lead is three to six feet in  width, and last week samples taken  all across the face gave an average  of $10. There are two tunnels on  the ��� group, one 20 feet and the  second 35 feet. The partners, are  starting to drift on the lead and  will continue this work until they  come out for the winter a couple.of  weeks hence.  ' Fred Hamlin and a partner have  been working a gold proposition  comprising three claims during the  summer. They have the same class  of ore as the War Eagle and a lead  of 3 to 4k feet. Hamlin came out  on Thursday for the winter.  The work on the other locations  in the vicinity has been confined  largely to assessments, but the  showings are good. The miners of  the district. liave been at a disadvantage heretofore through .the  lack of transportation facilities  now removed by the construction,  of the trail and believe that their  properties under favorable conditions will receive the .attention  which will demonstrate their merit  on a proper scale.  Bonded the Commonwealth.  - W. A. McLellan, superintendant  of the crew at the Commonwealth  group on Hooker creek, was in Nelson yesterday for the purpose of  purchasing supplies for the camp  and arranging to double the crew at  an early date. The Commonwealth  was bonded recently by T, G. Proc  tor and other3 to the Canadian  Goldfiolds.Limited.audJ. C.Drewey,  manager of the latter syndicate,  made a very favorable report on  the ���; property early in the week:  Superintendent McLellan's opinion  of the group is summed tip in the  words: "I have worked in many  British Columbia properties, and  none of them look as well as the  Commonwealth. I have no hesitation in predicting that it will be a  mine.". !    >  The Commonwealth is located on  the divide between Kootenay and  St.   Mary's   rivers   and   comprises  three claims, the Sultan, Republic  and Commonwealth.   It is a silver,  copper, gold and lead proposition.  The present crew is sinking a shaft  S by 41  feet in  the   clear.     The  shaft is now down 50 feet and is in  solid ore all the. way.   Assays are  now being made from  which large  returns are anticipated.     The last*  assay was taken about a year ago"  and-went $1S in gold, 00 ounces in  silver and 13 per cent copper.    The  Canadian Goldfields   will continue  sinking to the 100 foot level and  will drift each, way for1 100 feet.  This will take all winter and a fur-,  tlier program  will  be determined  upon according to the results attained.    During the fall a cabin 12  by     IS     feet     was     constructed  and     it    is    proposed    to   erect  another   bunkhouse  ' immediately  25 x 18 feet, and todouble the crew  when this accommodation is available.   Ore is being taken  out constantly   in   development,   and   by  spring a substantial sum will be represented by the dumps.   An excellent- trail   connects    the   cainp  "wi"th"'*tHe'��� Crawford" creels wagon'  road 4i miles distant.  . In" the immediate vicinity .of the  Commonwealth   is   the- California  group, owned by. Mike Johnson of  Pilot Bay and others.   The Hidden  Treasure is across the gulch and  below the.California.   It belougs to  Sawyer Brothers of Pilot Bay, and  was worked during the spring, a  quantity   of   unusually    rich    ore  being taken out.    Operations will  be resumed on the Hidden Treasure  in   the   spring.     Jack  Reddin of  Pilot Bay has several claims near  the  Commonwealth.     These have  been prospected  in eleven places,  and ore found in every ease.   Red-  din   has   a quantity of good  ore  ready to ship.  Bonded the Iron Horse.  Mark Mauley of Slocan City is  attending the sittings of the assize  .count.���Hejs^the^plaintiff^in^the.  action of Manley vs. Collom, which  is among the firsc of the cases on  the civil list set down for trial.  During the week Mr. Manley, in  company with W. S. Rogers and  Wrighter of Spokane, and others,  bonded the Iron Horse claim and  London fraction on Ten-Mile creek,  adjoining the Enterprise mine, from  A. L. McLean and A. McDonald.  The Iron Horse has a narrow lead  of clean galena said to average 200  ounces of silver. The bondholders  have planned a comprehensive program of development and are to  commence work at once.  -\  '���a  8  fti  21  3ri  U0  fi  21  4  21  Jesse Graham is exhibiting a  number of fine mineral specimens  at his shooting gallery on Baker  street.

STRIKE IN. KOOTENAY MINES  ORE SHOOT POUND ON THE THOUSAND FOOT. LEVEL.  Were Formerly Known as the Columbia and Kootenav���New Superintendent for White Bear.  Rossland, October 19.���The ore  shoot of the" Kootenay mines has  been found on the 1000 foot level.  The pay shoot has - been found on  this level in the west drift, 116 feet  from the shaft, and another in the  east-drift, 104 feet eaat-of the "dhaft.-  The Kootenay mines, which formerly were known as the Columbia  and Kootenay, have been developed  by a series of tunnels running into  the side of the sloping hill, six in  number, one above the other. These  tunnels have been driven about 1HOO  feet each and are almost at the  western end of the property. From  No. 0 tunnel, at a distance of 1000  feet from the entrance, a vertical  "shaft was sunk this spring to a  depth of 400 feet. This was sunk  upon the ledge and so wide did it  prove that, notwithstanding the  natural dip of the vein, the bottom  of the shaft was found -to be- still  within ledge matter. It was found  that the vein was much mixed with  ahantmsion^of^country-rock^ancL  the values as. a consequence were  too low for the stoping of ore.  Drifts were run to the east and the  west.   ���.-.'"  Last week a strike of ore of a  good grade was found in the western end of the drift, and yesterday  it was made in the eastern end" of  the drift. This latter strike is regarded as of the most importance,  as it is found to be directly under  the raise connecting the sixth level  with the fifth. By this strike additional backs have been obtained for  400 feet. The width of the'new  finds is not known as yet, as they  have not been crosscut. The one in  the east drift is 16 feet wide on the  fifth level.  F. W. Guernsey, M. E., late of the  Center Star staff, has been  appointed superintendent of the  White Bear mine. Preparations  for pumping out are going ahead.  Pumping will begin Monday. The  contract for diamond drilling has  been let.   ,' '        .     ���  Empress Frederick's Condition.

The first member of the Canadian  contingent   for   service   in   South  Africa to reach Nelson is private  Rea who enlisted at Rossland and  was invalided home-i^ter the capture of Bloemfontein. .-"I will fight  in defence of the country but will  never look for a scrap _ again" is the  way   Rea   expressed^ his feelings,  and   it may be said*^ that similar  sentiments seem to animate 'all the  returning Canadians/' He arrived  in Nelson on Thursday and left for  Rossland yesterday jtn'orniugV   Rea  wore the uniform of vthe- Canadian  contingent,  khaki' .trousers" and a  jacket, brown crush^felt hat, turned  up on the left side a^d pinned with  the   regimental  crest? and   white  puttees neatly woun^d' from knee to  ankle.

Last night after the Conservative meeting adjourned, secretary  Starkey of the campaign committee said that there were 135 present  by actual count.    A minute afterwards Jacob Dover was met, and  he said that there were over ,200  present.   James McPKee, who was  not present at  the meeting, being  too good a Liberal, but who was  within   Jfearing   when   Mr, Dover  was making his  enthusiastic estimate of the size of the meeting,  said:   "Talk   about   your crowded  meetings; wait until the night of  the joint debate. bet ween 'Jakey'  and myself at the opera house next  week, when he will deliver an oration in English and I will "make  a   speech    in    Gaelic.

The meeting held in the committee rooms of the Conservative  party last night was attended by  over a hundred���most of them  workingmen. It was called to order  by D. M. Carley, chairman of candidate MacNeill's campaign committee, who made a short and  pointed speech in introducing Hon.  T.M.Daly of Rossland, who was  minister of the interior in the late  Conservative government. Mr. Daly  made a good speech, and it was listened to with attention., He  presented arguments without abuse,  and stated facts, that Liberals cannot well dispute. If all the campaign speeches are delivered in the  same spirit as was the one delivered  by Mr. Daly last night,, the campaign will be a clean one, and the  electors should cast their votes intelligently.  After Mr. Daly concluded the  chairman called upon John Elliot to  address the meeting. Mr. Elliot  spoke with considerable effect, dealing with the record of the Laurier  administration, and concluding  with the remark  that the policy  Tirn-Tsin, October 10.���Reliable  unofficial reports" say the advance  guard of the'allied forces ,entered  Pao Ting Fu on Wednesday?

A  motion to endorse candidate Foley's  nomination was carried unanimously.  HE ACCEPTS INCARCERATION AS A MEANS TO AN END:  -:���>  . ^ <~ -* - u-:  Ernest   Mansfield,    mining   promoter and business man, "has occupied cell 33 at the provincial jail  since Wednesday' night.     He was  arrested on a capias taken out by  the   men  employed   in the Camp  Mansfield . properties   which   Mr.  Mansfield   has   been   working   for  some months in the interests of a  French syndicate, among the principal members of   which is Rene  Laudi. The miners have notreceived  their   wages   for some  time,   the  aggregate due them being $2000 or  thereabouts.     In  addition certain  accounts for supplies furnished the  camp are unpaid and the business  men have also taken legal, steps to  protect their claims. ^ 11 is thought  that   the   money   to liquidate all  claims will be forthcoming today or  tomorrow.  No discredit is reflected on Mr.  Mansfield through his arrest. ' He  was the means of bringing capital  estimated to exceed $100,000 into  the Kootenays, and is personally  well-to-do. His private interest in  the Mansfield Manufacturing Company is placed at $25,000, and lie  has real estate in "Nelson ;on Baker  street and elsewhere which are  worth alone more' than. five times  the^amount of the' claims -made  against his syndicate. Neither was  it necessai'y for him to go to,1 jail.  Within a few hours of his arrest at  least three prominent *, citizens off-���  ered. in the presence of 'the", jail,  officials to' put. up any amount'of  l>ail-nedessary^tb^Tsecure^his. imnio-:  diate release. Mr. Mansfield took  the ground, however, that he would  not put up a cent of his private  means to meet the claims for work  done on the syndicate's properties  at their instructions, and he preferred a few days' confinement to  jeopardizing his own funds.  Further he intimates ' that  his agreement with the French syndicate is of such a nature that their  tardiness in forwarding funds will  be actionable, and that he proposes  to make them pay roundly for  every minute he has spent within  prison walls.  The trouble commenced some  weeks ago, when the remittances  from the company's headquarters  in France failed to arrive. As days  grew into weeks and no funds came  the men became dissatisfied and.on  Thursday of last week the camp  shut=down?=HVfrriMansfield=went=to=  Kaslo and consulted with the men,  among whom he has always been  very popular. They demanded a  settlement .and. he explained the  situation.    A cablegram was writ-  -^.���^l  ten to be forwarded to .    ie Laudi       ~/^  informing him of the trouble and"    -"*  urgently requesting a remittance. <>. Xl"  When   this   was    dispatched   Mr. ~\ f\c  Mansfield requested the men^to takex   ,*.--?  no further action until. Monday at ,'X ^  2   o'clock., --After   consulting �� the v ':'���?$  miners consented to .the arrange- ���*'-- >/  ment and extended the period of "      ~  grace to Tuesday at 2 o'clock.     * '-    , - },;l  Meanwhile a cable- arrived   in-,. ,"VJ*��>  structing Mansfield to draw on thevAJL?^  French capitalists.   He refused-to'.f"?^;!  consider this proposition, cabling in ^'-"S^f-Ll  reply that financial arrangements -v^,.'��'  must be made attheotherend. The -  necesfaary funds failed to turn up  and the men took action by issuing ��� -  a capias which was served-- in 'the -  ordinary way by sheriff Tuck.   The \;  ordinary   course of   action  would v  have been to place a mechanics' lien   "  on the Camp Mansfield.Jbut.. aU.ther  claims were recorded -in**_the name  of Rene Laudi and the' men were '-  hired by Mr. Mansfield. A difficulty *  might   have   arisen, therefore,   hi  proving that the latter was authorized, hence the capias.--It will be  noted,    however,    that  ^Mansfield  made   no   attempt   to   leave   the '  province    surreptitiously,    having ^  announced his intention of leaving %  for England on Thursday through '"  The Tribune and otherwise.   J l '   :  During  the last summer things ^  have not gone smoothly in connec- '  tion with the properties taken upV"  by the French capitalists at the-re���**  commendation   of    Mr.'. Mansfield,  and in which he retains large; holdings.   The Joker, for instance,-;was ^: v^f  located as a remarkably "richV'pro*: "���V i3}  perty,,engineers and practicahmin-^ ^  -ing^nfeu^having .reported**to rthis^'^srf  ettect, - 'Ihero seems to ,be  no  possible reason to doubt- the  merit of  the Joker,  yet  the "property was  suddenly shut down and allowed to  fill with water,'and no attempt has  been made to proceed -with development for several months.    This  points to the accuracy of Mr. Mails-  field's     contention   that    a    conspiracy   exists    to     defraud   the  smaller      shareholders       in   - the"  property, many of whom bought at  a   considerable advance   over par  value,   lie announces that on his  return to England he will  take action to compel  the directorate to  reopen the Joker and  recommence  work.    The result of thib effort will  be awaited with keen interest.  The entire incident has eauseJ a  mild sensation in Nelson, where  MansGeld is well known and .re  spected. It will be satisfactory, to  =Mr.=Mausfield-s^friend5rhoweverf to-  know that he is not repining under  the circumstances, and that tho  situation, when thoroughly explained, will not redound in the  slightest to his discredit.  THE MACKENZIE SYNDICATE  A Talk on Railway Matters.  William Mackenzie of the Mackenzie Syndicate was in Nelson for  several hours yesterday. He came  in on the morning train from the  coast in his private car and was  accompanied by his daughters. Mr.  Mackenzie is largely interested in  Boundary mines, and would have  gone to Greenwood and Phconix for  a day had the weather been more  favorable. Instead, he left last  night over the Crow's Nest road,  and will stay over a day at the  North Star mine.  Three years have elapsed since  Mr..Mackenzie's last visit to Nelson, and he refers with surprise and  pleasure to the substantial business  blocks and other indications of the  city ^progress in the interim. That  a city of Nelson's size should have  an excellent street ear service  struck him as remarkable, and he  was keen to acquire information regarding the system.  In regard to railroad matters,  Mr. MacKenzie states that his syndicate has nothing on hand or in  view save tho Canada Northern, on  which John W. Stewart, who built  the Balfour Extension, has a con- _  tract.    Their project to build thei  Vancouver/Victoria & Eastern rail��  road has'been allowed to drop since  the   anti-subsidy   legislation   took  effect a couple of years ago.  .._.. "We are doing absolutely nothing  in connection with;the "WV.'&.E.  line," is Mr. MacKenzie's comment  on  the matter.

Gormley is the   kind  of a man who will pay five   dollars  for   defence   before   he   will   pay  twenty-five cents   in   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 mbuey  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 money under false pretences in connection with a milling  deal. His partner. Fred Frederick,  was found not guilty and discharged. The trial lasted all day,  and was not concluded until 9  o'clock last night, when the jury  returned with their verdict.  The fraud transpired in connection with the sale of a mineral  claim in the Burnt Basin district.  John H. Dilberger of Tacoma was  induced to "purchase the property  an the strength" of specimens which  Kettner 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 Kettner, and  were translated to the court by H.  E. McDonald. ��� Mr. justice Walkera  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. Mac-  donald of Rossland defended.  The grand jury concluded its  work yesterday, finding 13 true  bills out of!"i-P 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 theirattention. 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 cases 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.'.

In fact in  the two last-named districts ham-  mersmen-get-$3.r50^a���day,-or���25  cents more than the scale. The  management of the Ymir mine, iu  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 Bally.

MINING  STOCK QUOTATIONS.  Tho following were the quotations of British Columbia mining  stocks on the Toronto Stock Exchange yesterday:  RETURNS FROM BOER WAR  OTHER MINING NEWS FROM  NEIGHBORING DISTRICTS  At the government office yesterday; the accounts for the Nine-mile  creek trail were closed up and the  crew paid off. The trail is practically completed and runs up the  creek for 13 miles, affording easy  access to a section of the country  about the divide between Nine-  mile and Midge creeks, whicli will  probably be heard from frequently  from this out. Seven men were  employed on the trail for a month  and they have done good work. '  Among the properties in the district are the Rawdon", Manila and  War Eagle groups, Avith. other  claims, twelve or fourteen in all.  Tho claims are showing up well for  the amount of work on them and it  is probable that several of them  will be worked extensively next  year. .  The first property .on Nine-mile  creek is; the "Rawdon group, eight  miles from the lake. It is owned  by W. Eames and J. Huff and comprises three claims. The ledge is  four to five feet in width all  well ' mineralized carrying copper and silver. The lead has been  opened up in four places,  and two shafts, one 30 feet and the  other 40 feet, have been sunk. The  two partners are working on the  property at the present time,  .The Manila and- Cougar group  comprises the"Manila, Cougar, Silver Tip, Columbia fraction, Black  p!-������iond and Silver Queen claims,  iSt&j&vners being Joe Clubb, H. A.  'Prosser, captain Robinson, Charles  Orandon, A. H.JHscher, 3V. Salis-  ' &iti-y and J. McKay. Tt is a silver-  ^leftal^oposition, with two parallel  ledges^ one of which outcrops for  2000 feet. ' Tho main.lead is from" 2  ..to -U foet in width! while the second "ledge ranges from twelve inches  to 2 feet. Assays from the group  riiiufrpm eight ounces of silver and  31 per cent of copper to-48 ounces  of silver and 50 per cent copper,  with from a trace to $2.50 in gold.  Tho work on the group includes  ($2 feet of tunnelling projected to  crosscut the main lead 20 feet further in, and at a depth of 80 feet.  A second tunnel has been run sixteen feet at another point. Joe  Clubb was in the city yesterday in  connection with the trail construction accounts. He returns on Monday, and will erect a cabin in order  that work may be continued till  Christmas at least.  The War Eagle group includes  "sisTclaims-owned_by_Go~ridlad���and"  "Blanchfield of Ymir and is regarded  as a very promising property. It  is a gold proposition carrying some  free gold and a little lead and silver.  The lead is three to six feet in  width, and last week samples taken  all across the face gave an average  of $10. There are two tunnels on  the ��� group, one 20 feet and the  second 35 feet. The partners are  starting to drift 'on the lead and  will continue this work until they  come out for the winter a couple of  ���weeks hence.  ' Fred Hamlin and a partner have  been working a gold proposition  comprising three claims during the  summer. They have the same class  of ore as the War Eagle and a lead  of 3 to Ah feet. Hamlin came out  on Thursday for the winter.  The work on the other locations  in the vicinity has been confined  largely to assessments, but the  showings are good. The miners of  the district have beferi at a disadvantage heretofore through.the  lack of transportation facilities  now removed by the construction  of the trail and believe that their  properties under favorable conditions-will receive the attention  which will demonstrate their merit  fin a proper scale.  Bonded the Commonwealth.  "' W. A. McLellan, superintendant  of the crew at the Commonwealth  group on Hooker creek, was in Nelson yesterday for the purpose of  purchasing supplies for the camp  and arranging to double the crew at  an early date. The Commonwealth  was bonded recBuitly by T, G. Proc:  tor and others to tho Canadian  Goldfields, Limited,and J. O. Drewey,  manager of the latter syndicate,  made a very favorable report on  the property early in the week.  Superintendent McLellan's opinion  of the group is summed up in the  words: "I have worked in many  British Columbia properties, and  none of them look as well as the  Commonwealth. I have no hesitation in predicting that it will be a  mine!"  The Commonwealth is located on  the divide between Kootenay and  St. Mary's rivers and comprises  three claims, the Sultan, Republic  and Commonwealth. It is a silver,  copper, gold and lead proposition.  The present crew is sinking a shaft  S by 41 feet in the clear. The  shaft is now down 50 feet and is in  solid ore all the, way. Assays are  now being made from which large  returns are anticipated. The last'  assay was taken about a year ago"  and-went $1S in gold, 00 ourices'ih  silver and 13 per cent copper. The  Canadian Goldfields will continue  sinking to the 100 foot level and  will drift each, way for 100 feet.  This will take all .winter and a fur-,  ther* program will be determined  upon according to the results attained. During the fall a cabin 12  by IS feet was constructed-  and it is proposed ��� to erect  another bunkhouse ' immediately  25 x 18 feet, and to double the crew  when this accommodation is available. Ore is being taken out constantly in development,- arid ' by  spring a substantial sum will be represented by "the dumps. An excellent- trail connects the camp  ,wi"tir*tKe' Crawford'" ��reelc"wafeori  road 4h miles distant. .  '. In" the immediate vicinity .of the  Commonwealth is ~ the California  group, owned by Mike Johnson of  Pilot Bay and others. The Hidden  Treasure is across the gulch and  below the.California. It belongs to  Sawyer Brothers of Pilot Bay, and  was worked during the spring, a  quantity of unusually rich ore  being taken out. Operations will  be resumed on the Hidden Treasure  in the spring. Jack Reddin of  Pilot Bay has several claims near  the Commonwealth. These have  been prospected in eleven places,  and ore found in every case. Red-  din has a quantity of good ore  ready to ship.

Rossland, October 19.���The ore  shoot of the Kootenay mines has  been found on the 1000 foot level.  The pay shoot has ������ been found on  this level in the west drift, 116 feet  from the shaft, and another in the  east-drifMOtfeet eaob-bf the.ahaft.-  The Kootenay mines, which formerly were known as the Columbia  and Kootenay, have been developed  by a series of tunnels running into  the side of the sloping hill, six in  number, one above the other. These  tunnels have been driven about 1500  feet each and are almost at the  western end of the property. From  No. 0 tunnel, at a distance of 1000  feet from the entrance, a vertical  "shaft was sunk this spring to a  depth of 400 feet This was sunk  upon the ledge and so wide did it  prove that, notwithstanding the  natural dip of the vein, the bottom  of the shaft was found ��� to be** still  within ledge matter. It was found  that the vein was much mixed with  _an_intrusion_pf_country__rock_and.  the values as a consequence were  too low for the stoping of ore.  Drifts wore run to the east and the  west.  Last week a strike of ore of a  good grade was found in the western end of the drift, and yesterday  it was made in the eastern end of  the drift. This latter strike is regarded as of the most importance,  as it is found to be directly under  the raise connecting the sixth level  with the fifth. By this strike additional backs have been obtained for  400 feet. The width of 'the'-'new  finds is not known as yet, as they  have not been crosscut. The one iu  the east drift is 10 feet wide on the  fifth level.  F. AV. Guernsey, M. E��� late of the  Center Star staff, has been  appointed superintendent of the  White Bear mine.

He  presented arguments ���without abuse,  aud stated facts that Liberals cannot well dispute. If all the campaign speeches are delivered in the  same spirit as was the one delivered  by Mr. Daly last night,, the campaign will be a clean one, and the  electors should cast their votes intelligently.

Ernest   Mansfield,    mining   promoter and business man, has occupied cell 33 at the provincial jail  since Wednesday,"night.     He, was  arrested on a capias taken but by  the  men employed *in the Camp  Mansfield . properties   which   Mr.  Mansfield   has   been   working   for  some months in the interests of a  French syndicate, among the principal members of   which is Rene  Laudi. The miners have notreceived  their   wages   for some  time,   the  aggregate due them being $2000 or  thereabouts.     In  addition certain  accounts for supplies furnished the  camp are unpaid and the business  men'have also taken legal steps  to  protect their claims. - It is thought  that   the   money   to liquidate all  claims will be forthcoming today or  tomorrow.  No discredit is reflected on Mr.  Mansfield through his arrest.' He  was the means of bringing capital  estimated to exceed $100,000 into  the' Kootenays, "and' is personally  well-to-do. His'private interest in  the Mansfield Manufacturing Company is placed at $25,000, and he  has real estate iu. "Nelsonr^bn 'Baker  street and elsewhere" which -are  worth alone more' than. five times  the:*amount of 'the claims -made  against his syndicate. Neither was  it necessary for him to go to: jail.  Within a few hours of his arrest at  least three, prominent'.citizens' offered] in/the presence of "the^jail  -officials'!.tolput.ivip any amount'ofr"  f]iail-tiec'essary'-to-;secui5e?his .anime?;  diate release. Mr. Mansfield took  the ground, however, that he would"  not put up a cent of his private  means to meet the claims*" for work  done on the syndicate's properties  at their instructions, aud he "pre-"  ferred a few days' confinement to  jeopardizing his own funds.  Further he intimates ��� that  his agreement with the French syndicate is of such a nature that their  tardiness in forwarding funds will  be actionable, and that he proposes  to make them pay.roundly for  every minute he has spent within  prison walls.  The trouble commenced some  weeks ago, when the remittances  from the company's headquarters  in France failed to arrive. As days  grew into weeks and no funds came  the men became dissatisfied and on  Thursday of last week the camp  shut down.���Mr.-Mansfield-went-to-  Kaslo and consulted with the men,  among whom he has always been  very popular. They demanded a  settlement and he explained the  situation.    A cablegram was writ-  2*V  ���f-AI  ~\f I  :-(�����!  ���*VQ  t -  ten to be forwarded to .   -ie Laudi - v  informing him of the "trouble and -   '  urgently requesting a remittance.   ',.  When   this   was    dispatched   Mr. ,; -  Mansfield requested-the men,totakecv>>  no further action ."until1 Monday at ;*'.  2   o'clock.,. vAfter   consulting * the" T>  miners consented to -the arrange-"1' '  ment and extended the period of  grace to Tuesday at 2 o'clock.      "-':'    :  Meanwhile a cable- arrived   in*-, J...  structing Mansfield to draw on. the'- ^i  Frenchtcapitalists.   He refused>to i>i"  consider this proposition, cabling in^/:  reply that financial arrangements <  must be made attheotherend. The -  necessary funds failed to turn up '  and the men took action by issuingv  a capias which was served" in -the  ordinary way by sheriff Tuck.  The '  ordinary   course of   action would ��  have been to place a mechanics' lien ���'  on the Camp Mansfield..but, aU.the  claims were recorded "in*' the name  of Rene Laudi and the,"men "were  hired by Mr. Mansfield. A difficulty  might   have   arisen, therefore,   in  proving that the latter was authorized, hence the capias.   -It will be  noted,    however, "that   Mansfield  made   no   attempt   to - leave - the.'  province   "surreptitiously,    having 'i;  announced his intention of leaving.* {'"  for England on Thursday- through������:<  The Tribune arid otherwise.", V;_ ? ���-"  -   During   the last summer  things   -7  have not gone smoothly, in connection with the  properties taken up'-r.^iS  by the French capitalists at-the re- ^','tr'^l  commendation   of -_ Mr.'jMansfield; 7*i~>w|  and in whicli he,retains larger. hbldr; ;iv^|  ingsi   The "Joker, for instance,^ was!' r.>;~^  located as-.a^remarkably rielr/pro^..- Xt&i  pert"y,;engineers7and:"practi&  .-"A.

He announces that on his  return to England he will take action to compel the directorate ��� to  reopen the Joker and  recommence  work.   The result of this effort will  be awaited with keen interest.  The entire incident lias cause.1 a  mild sensation in Nelson, where  Mansfield is well known and re  spected. It will be satisfactory to  Mr.-Mansfield's friendsrhowever,-to--  know that he is not repining under  the circumstances, and that the  situation, when thoroughly explained, will not redound in the  slightest to his discredit.  THE MACKENZIE SYNDICATE  A Talk on Railway Matters.  William Mackenzie of the Mackenzie Syndicate was in Nelson for  several hours yesterday. He came  in on the morning train from the  coast in his private car and was  accompanied by his daughters. Mr.  Mackenzie is largely interested in  Boundary mines, and would have  gone to Greenwood and Phoenix for  a day had the weather been more  favorable. Instead, he left last  night over the Crow's Nest road,  and will stay over a day at the  North Star mine.  Three years have elapsed since  Mr..Mackenzie's last visit to Nelson, and he refers with surprise and  pleasure to the substantial business  blocks and other indications of the  city's progress in the interim. That  a city of Nelson's size should have  an excellent street car service  struck him as remarkable, and he  was keen to acquire information regarding the system.  In regard to. railroad matters,  Mr. MacKen/.ie states that his syndicate has nothing on hand or in  view save the Canada Northern, on  which John AAr. Stewart, who buill  the Balfour Extension, has a con  tract.    Their project to build th<  Vancouver, A^ictoria & Eastern railroad has been allowed to drop since  the anti-subsidy legislation took  effect a couple of years ago.  "We are doing absolutely nothing '.  in connection with the V., V.'&.E.  line," is Mr. MacKenzie's comment'  on the matter.    He knows'of no  projected roads in  this province;-"  stating that the syndicate is not .  interested   in   the   proposition- to  build a road from Republic to Car- ���  son on the international boundary'  line and across into Greenwood.'  Referring to his mining interests,  Mr.MacKenzie states that he is satis-  fiudwith the prospects ahead of the  North Star mine. The property is  a steady shipper and improves constantly with development.

The Conservative committe-room  rally,last night was fairly representative of the men that make up  the rank and file of the Conservative party in'Nelson! More  than one hundred were present,  and fully one half of them were  men who worked for wages. It is  possible that they were" not all  qualified voters, and it is '.iiis't possible that they were not all supporters of the Conservative party;  but that so large a numheV of  worKingmen should attend a committee-room meeting ispretty good  evidence that the workingriien are  jiot all of one-way of thinking, and  ^y of them will votefbr the  of the political party  h they have affiliated in  works, electric lighting system,  sewers aud permanent streets than  Nelson, and no town in Canada of  its population has as good a showing in the way of business buildings and private residences.

Few visitors to the Provincial  exhibition'failed to notice and admire thd fine display of J. Henry,  the nurseryman of Vancouver. Tt  occupied a conspicuous place opposite the west entrance to the main  building, and"was so arranged that  at a glance one could se'e at once of  what it consisted and what it represented."  One of Mr. Henry's strong lines is  bulb's, and each year "sees his importations increasing to suit the  growing'dematids of his - customers.  Three days before the show opened  a shipment of no less than two tons  of bulbs were received direct' from  Holland and Japan, and samples of  the numerous varities" were there-'1  fo're conspicuous. A portion of  tliese were "used in the forniation of  the letters of the sign "bulb's," and  the same idea was' carried out regarding tlie seed 'department,  "seeds" being spelled in everla'st1  ings, etc.  Mr. Henryis'going in more largely  than ever for seeds,"arid customers  can now "count on' getting good,  fresh seeds,'; home-grown -"or imported, just a's.he can obtain" from  thesame sourcegbbcT reliable bulbs;  The display "of cut flowers, _ (lowering and foliage plants, etc! which  helped to make the display so  attractive, were really only to show  the excellent results ' from bulbs,"  seeds, etc,, in stock. Another portion of the display was formed by  young fruittrees, hardy evergreen  shrubs, etc., which represented the  excellent.stoek in the Henry nursery, and profusely scattered with  the flowers and plants were ripe  apples, pears, grapes," etc., showing  to prospective purchasers the superior kind of stock grafted to the  trees for sale.  Yet another large section of this  interesting display was devoted to  the exhibition of stock carried in  connection with Mr. Henry's apiary.  Bee culture is a branch of industry  which has been a life study of Mr.  Henry, and he not only carries on a  large and-profitable business in this  line, but sells all kinds of beekeepers' supplies. Those at the top  fear'Uot-^competition,_which_is_the_  life of trade, and anyone contem  plating  keeping bees could: not;do  better than consult Mr. Henry.  The greenhouses and apiary are  situated on Westminster road, at  the city limits, Vancouver, and the  large nursery, containing some 12,-  000 trees, is situated a mile or twb'  farther south.

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'dutiea on lead  and lead productsbeincreased, so that they shall be as high as those now  imposed by the United States on.'the same arti(ilos.  That'the output of the precious metal mines is largely increasing,  therefore we favOr the establishment of a mint, so.that the specie in circulation' shall be that of our own instead of tliat'of it foreign country.  We'adv'OCate the restriction of the immigration of Cliine.se. anil Japan esej 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 has not now the representation in the federal parliament that she is entitled to: therefore we advocate that when the  redistribution of seats isi made that this constituency shall be given representation according to its population.  That it augurs well for the success of the 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.  ���  ���"    ' ��� ���"���----       .

The terrible cyolono that daiu-  ".iipfOfl'"'Galveston  Island is not the  lirsb calamity of the kind that has  occurred in the Mexican gulf.    It  vividly recalls an incident tiiat will  overlive in memory.   Over  forty  years ago there was a similar calamity in the destruction  of Last  Island, off the Louisiana coast by a  cyclone on September 12th,   18;")0.  Last Island was a delightful summer resort not very much  known  to the outer world.   The season of  1850'.. was   particularly   charming,  and     the     watering    place    was  crowded with Louisiana's representative   people.     The   morniug   of  September 10 bh was one of almost  unearthly  loveliness.   The   Sunset  that evening affrighted the  timid  souls.    It went down in the west,  and the sky red as vermeil, an angry sun, and left the Occident blazing across the waves as  though a  world   was   in  flames.     All   that  night the Dago fishermen (a curious  superstitious   class,   half   Snanish-  1 talian and half Creole), taking to  tho waves-like seagulls, heard  out  tit sea strange sounds, moans,  as  though   some   supernatural   being  was in awful agony.  The morning of the 11th was like  that of the previous day. Towards  night there came; up a terrible  thunderstorm. The thunder- Avas  ns unlike that of the northern dash  of storm as a fire-cracker is to the  ci^qk and' roar of a ��� (5-ineh gun.  Tltyo-uweller on the mainland-and  the Teche and Lafourche painters  liacl ixe,vejx^beCo^e7.seen such flight-,  "nlng. 'ItSlashed t'rotnthe zenith to  hlieV.ias.tern and western horizon in  great', broad green, purple and  flamed colored bands of electric  blaze a degree in width. And after  each awful crash, that almost rent  the ear drums, there would bo a  distinctly sulphurous.tinge perceptible in the air. Toward the morning of the J2th the thunder and  lightning ceased, but-the 'rain con-  tinned and the wind grew stronger  from the southwest. The sailboats  of the frightened fishermen ' could  lie seen in the early morning light'  Hying before the- wind for secure  landings in the side streams and  waters of cheniere caminada.  There was at the. principal hotel  that evening, the grand ball of the  season, for it was to be the'last.  The "band of the French Opera  House was there from New Orleans,  j then   unequaled   for its  music, in  America.  At 10 o'clock the dance was at its  height. Outside- the storm .was  raging. The intense blackness was  brokehby the constant broad flashes  of lightning and phosphorescent  blaze of the sea. A terrible wind  blew, .with torrents of slanting rain  ��� that was as warm as newly-drawn  blood. The band was playing one  of Gottschalk's sweetest ''dreamy.���  waltzes (he was a Louisianian, you  know), "Creole Eyes," when a girl  screamed. Her white satin bottine:  had been wetted by water coming  up through the floor. Terror then  beset all. A rush was made for the  hotel, but the covered way was  gone. It had been carried off by a  tremendous wave of the raging sea!  Mothers had left their little children asleep in the other house. How  should they, get to them ? It was  utterly impossible unless one had  .';Wings to.pass through the tossing,  boiling flood of maddened sea....that  rolled between. Of the horrors that  followed no living tongue could  ever tell.   But about midnight a  strange sea moan that became a  roar grew neare��- and louder,  until  >it was like. 10,000 thundering  Niagaras. It was a tidal wave 1000  miles long, 10 miles wide and 00  feetihigh I And as it rolled-resistless,  hotel, ballroom,: all���all   was  -swallowed up in- the-maw of the  pitiless.sea. Men, women and little  ones were parted never again to  meet until that ;final day "when the  sea shall give up its dead I"  Such a tragedy had never been  known before in the nation's history.

In one instance the body of a  lady in the last putrescent stages  was identified by nearly $50,000  worth of diamonds she had worn  that fateful night. Think of the  ghastliness of it. The only two  survivors were a strong, powerful  negress, who blindly caught onto a  door that was floating by aud was  carried in to the mainland, and the  other was a tiny girl baby, not  more than 18 months old. She had  been placed upon a billiard table,  andthere she was found on the Lafourche shore 48 hours after the  storm. Nearly every household in  southern Louisiana was in mourning, for 490 adults were lost." How  helpless we are when old Nature  looses her awful mystic force and  turns upon man!  Interrogating! Officially.  "When I was in Maine a week or  two ago," said a commercial traveler, "I had occasion to visit a town  near Hangor^ and one morning,  having an idle hour, I, for the v sake  of killing time, strolled into the  country court room, where I witnessed an amusing scene. - The  trial, justice, a big pompous official,  with a voice like a trombone; took  it upon himself to examine a witness, a little withered old man,  whose face -was as red and wrinkled  as. a.herring.  ' " 'What's your name?' asked the  .justice.  " 'Why, squire,' said the.aston-  ished-witness, 'you know-my name  as -well as I know your'n.'  " 'Never you mind what 1 know  or what 1 don't know,'was the-caii-j  tion given, with. magisterial severity. 'I ask the question :in ray official capacity, and you're bound to  answer it under oath.'  "With';a:contemptuous snort the  witness gave his name and the questioning proceeded.  " 'Where do you live?'.  " 'Wal, I swum !' ejaculated the  old man. 'Why,' he continued, appealing to the laughing listeners,  ���I've lived in this town all "my life,  and so's he,' pointing to the justice,  'an', begosh, to hear him go on you'd  think���' o  "'Silence!'   thundered   the irate  Surpassing*  Display in  Fall Suitings   OUR  STOCK  OF  GOODS  BOUGHT  THIS  YEAR  HAS  NO   EQUAL   IN  B.
