 j^M^M  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  tlGHTH YEAB.  NELSON:  FBtDAY MORNING OCTOBER 26  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  TO PENETRATE THE HUMAN FRAME  A Thoroughly Equipped Roentjen Ray Machine is Now  in Operation in Nelson.  AN INTERESTING  DESCRIPTION OF ITS POSSIBILITIES  -The latest addition to tho agen-  .���it\s possessed by the medienl fraternity in Nelson for successfully  overcoming disease is a Roentgen  nr X-ray machine recently set\ up  in the office of Dr. D. LaBau. The  invention of X-rays has revolutionized ; tlie treatment of certain  i.htsses of eases and afforded the  physiqian a means by which he can  examine the bones of a patient as  . readily as he can read the symptoms discernable on the cuticle,  and during recent years the discovery lias been widely adopted,  with splendid success in the practice of surgery. Tlie introduction  iif  the  machine   into   Nelson   has  ��� created great interest' and among  others several patients from the  general hospital have been treated  by nieans of the X-rays.  Dr. LaBaii's.machine is known as  tlie Static machine. The electrical  current is generated by sixteen insulated plate glass disks enclosed in  m. glass-case. Eight of these disks,  each 27 inches in diameter, revolve  on an axle, the power for this purpose being obtained from an electric motor. The remaining eight  disks, each 30 inches in diameter,  are stationary- The interior of the  cabinet is kept free of moisture and  a cushion of dry air lies between  the disks. When these are set in  mor'nu tbs eflect is to produce a  dfrSfeatTof' electricity of 2,500,000  volts. The��� current thus developed  is carried through heavily insulated  wires to the Crookes tube, - which  .is-the final stage of the operation.  The tube has a four or five inch  globe from which all air has been  excluded in raanifaefcure and contains platinum wires leading from  either   end to disks of the same  , metal. The disks are several  inches apart and the X-ray  is produced by using a current of  sufficient voltage to pass from one  platinum disk to the other through  ���die intervening vacuum. When  this is accomplished the glass globe  of the tube becomes incandescent,  presenting the appearance of a ball  of olive "green light. The machine  is placed in a dark room and can be  used directly or for the purpose of  photography. An essential to the  use of the X-ray for direct examination is\ the fluoroscope. This is  a pyramidal box open at the apex  and closed at the base with a sheet  Mining Records.  Yesteiday's mining records were:  Locations���The Caledonia, ten miles  west of Nelson and two and a half  miles north of Kootenay river, by  Weldram Moore; the Ashland, same  location, by J. O.

Lovell on the Good-  enough Fraction, to Alfred Bunker  on the Royal Charter, to E. D.  R.iuear on the Cracker Jack..  Found Dead.  Indianapolis, October 25.���Leole  Wilhelm Avan found murdered today on the west bank of White  river, in the heart of the city.  Apparently she had been strangled  and robbed. John Wilhelm, bus's band of the ffomauj' John Maladay  and Felix Bobbins have been arrested.   Union Men Walk Out.  Quebec, October 25.���There is  trouble on again between the Quebec shoe manufacturers and the  *nen.   It .grew out of the refusal of  of pasteboard covered with barinm-  platino-cyanide. If a hand, for instance, is to be examined it is  placed about ten inches from the  Crookes tube, the fluoroscope is  held before the eyes with the hand  between the tube and the instrument. The bones of the hand can  then be seen as distinctly as would  be the case if the bonas were denuded of every particle of tissue  and exposed to the eyetmder ordinary circumstances. Should there  be a ring on the hand or any body  opaque to the ray, such as metal,  etc., it stands out prominently and  can be located accurately.  The second method of utilizing  tho X-ray is by photography. This  is done by means of an ordiuary  photographic plate within a wooden  plateholder. The portion of the  body to be photographed is placed  on the plate and the tube adjusted  at a proper distance above. The  exposures range in duration from a  fraction of a moment to an 'hour  according to the thickness of the  portion of the body to be photographed. The photographic plate  is more sensitive than the eye and  will record impressions. .which  would otherwise escape observation.  The apparatus without the  Crookes tube is used extensively  for therapeutic purposes. The current is under the absolute ��� control  of the operator and in any' event  would not be fatal even at full  strength.  Since installing the X-ray machine Dr. LaBau has conducted a number of interesting experiments. The  penetrating power of the ray is,.almost beyond belief, as will be realized when it is stated that on one occasion a wooden case two inches  thick, containing surgical instruments, was used' for experiment.  Between the".ease and, the fluoroscope was placed a book four inches  thick and three inches of oak.  Viewed through the fluoroscope,  book oak and-case became invisible,  nothing being in sight save the  metal instruments within the box.  In one instance a miner consulted  Dr. LaBau with regard to a chip  from a wedgeLwhich had lodged in  his leg some years ago and could  not be located. An application of  the X-ray rendered the splinter visible arid it was extracted without  trouble, tin examining fractures,  etc., the condition of the bones is  revealed as plainly as though the  flesh was taken away.  a union man to work for-weekly  wages instead of piece work. He  was discharged and a. non-union  man engaged. As a result all the  men in the factory went out. The  raaniifacturers' committee thereupon decided to shut down until a  better understanding is obtained.  About thirty factories and a thousand men are involved.  Fixed a Wage Scale.  Pittsburg, October 25.-���The National Association of Bridge and  Structural Iron' Workers, in session  here today, adopted a universal  wage scale, fixing the rate of wages  at 50 cents an hour, with eight  hours a day's work. The scale will  go into effect next May. It was  also decided to send an organizer to  South Africa and Egypt to organize structural iron workers in those  countries.   Preacher Went Wrong.  Delhi, New Yoik, October 25.���  Lyman S. Brown of Liberty, formerly a Methodist preacher, was  found dead this afternoon in his  room at the Central Hotel. He had  evidently taken laudanum. There  was a complaint against him for  forgery before the grand jury now  in session, and it is supposed he  feared an indictment by the grand  jury. , . .   -���  Takes a Pessimistic View.  London, October 20.���Sir Robert  Hart, director-general of the Chinese imperial maritime customs, in  an article in the November number  of the Fornightly Review, takes a  pessimistic view of the Chinese situation. He frankly declares his  opinion to be that the Boxer move  ment is national and patriotic, haa  taken hold of the Chinese imagina  tion and will spread like wildfire  throughout the length and breadth  of the empire. "There is not the  slightest doubt," he says, "that  fifty years hence there will be millions of Boxers in serried ranks and  war's panoply at the call of the  Chinese government."       '  Discussing the alternative course  open to the powers, sir Robert sees  a very real "yellow peril" ahead  and no hope of a permanent solution.  The morning papers, dealing editorially: with sir Robert Hart.'s  article, admit its importanee, but  considers that his views are too  gloomy and that his ideas of the  Boxer movement are a phantasm  of a too sensitive imagination.  Got Double Price.  Copenhagen, Denmark, October 25.���Dr. Hanzen. who was  a member of the, Estrup cabinet  in which he heldTthe portfolio of  war, is now being sharply attacked  by the Liberal and Radical papers  because while minister he obtained  140,000 kroners .'from the national  invalid fund by mortgaging his  estate which has recently been sold  for only 70,000 kroners.  IT IS STILL IN ABEYANCE  COULDN'T LOSE THE COUNT  EXCITING   SCENE ;0>T   STEAMER  LEAVING  NEW   YORK.  A   French-Italian   Nobleman    Didn't  Want His Wife to Escape Him .  and Swam After Her.  JUDGE  WALKEM  RESERVES  HIS  DECISION.  Case of McKay vs Phillips,- in Which  '   Much Interest Has Been Taken  By Mining Men.  The case of McKay vs. Phillips  was closed at. the courthouse last  night, Mr. justice Walkem reserving his decision. Another interesting feature of mining law was  evolved during the sittings which  cropped up for the first time in a  Nelson, court. ..AVhen the --.session  resumed yesterday" morning ' his  honor announced that after considering the objections raised by R.  W. Hannington, counsel for the defence, he had.decided to uphold the  defendant's contentions generally  and that relating to lack of proofs  of measurements in particular. The  plaintiff was therefore non-suited.  Under the former procedure this  would have settled the matter  finally, the defendant's title being  regarded as established through  the failure of the plaintiff's case.  Recent amendments to the Mineral  Act, however, place tho onus of  establishing his own title upon the  defendant in addition to defeating  tho attack made by the plaintiff.  Evidence was submitted during the  day to establish Philips' title, and  the judgment on this point will be  handed down later.  i-==-=The__-Surprise_i:_mineral?&claini_=infe  volved in the suit is regarded as a  valuable location. It was one of a  group in which Nelson men are interested, bonded to a syndicate at  $10,000. The deal is understood to  be hanging fire pending the result  of the litigation.  Deserved Promotion.  The friends of lieutenant V. L.  Beer, R. G.-.A., at Victoria, will be  glad to hear of his recent promotion to the rank of captain, and  also of his selection for colonial  employment to fill the appointment  of commandant of the permanent  garrison at Albany, West Australia,  made vacant by the death of captain H. G. Moor, R. A., who was  killed in action in- South Africa,  whilst employed with the West  Australian contingent. Captain  Beer graduated from the Royal  Military College of Canada in 1894,  and was posted to this station last  year. . '  Shipping Disasters.  St. Johns, Newfoundland, October 25.���The British steamer Ala-  raanea, captain Anderson, from  Philadelphia and bound to Glasgow  laden with grain, put in here this  afternoon with leaky decks. The  vessel will be delayed about 24  hours repairing. <  Four vessels from Oporto, laden  with salt for the local fish trade,  have been reported as lost, having  been out over 00 days.  Fell on a Lamp.  Elmira, New York, October 25.���  Mrs. George Abbey of Wood hull,  aged 55, fell upon a lighted lamp  which she was carrying last night  and was burned to a crisp.  New   York,   October    25.���The  passengers on the'Hamburg-American line steamship Kaiser Friedrich,  which sailed today for Cherbourg  and   Hamburg,   witnessed   an exciting scene just'after the steamer  had put out 'from   her dock.     A  woman with  .at maid  had" hi red a  stateroom on the vessel and they  were on board when she sailed.   As  the ship left the.dock this woman  was seen to niake signals to a man  who was standing at the end of the  pier.    As soon a'S'tbe man observed  the signals he'boarded  a  tugboat  which was lying on the' other side  of the doek.Tvith steam up, and  ordered    the     captain     to     follow  the      steamer,     remarking-    that  he    would    pay.   him    well    for  his trouble.   The., tugboat put out  at once in pursuit of , the steamer,  which was now,, in  midstream, and  soon rangediip alongside "her.   As  soon as it had done so .the woman  who had made the signals and her  maid came down a rope ladder and  were received aboard .the tug. They  had hardly-reached the tug when a  man jumped i'overboard ��� from' the.  .steamer and landed on.the deck7' of  the tugboat. 'C This man was count  Michonoy, a "French Italian. ._ He  said that thewoman was his wife  and that she ..was. trying to escape  from him.    It'Avas learned from-the  woman's   brother-in-law, the man  who-followed the - steamer. on the  tug, that"'th'e ��� count and countess  Michonoy were, married in Hacken-  sackthree monthsago against the  .wishes-of dfe^oman's-iamily...; ., ���  Ever since nTrrJmarriage,''"accord-"  ing to the brother-in-law,. she had  to support her husband. . When the  count landed on the tugboat the  captain of the vessel threatened to  throw him overboard, whereupon  the count drew a revolver and" dared  the captain to carry out his threat.  Finally, the captain steered for. the  New York shore and landed. Here  the sergeant at the' harbor police  station was called upon and he, .it  is said, compelled the count to leave  the tugboat. The boat then put  back to Hoboken; ....  The brother-in-law stated that  the countess would'institute proceedings to-secure a divorce.  SENT A SPECIAL BLESSING  Mgr. Franconio's Visit.  ^���The-visit-oC .morisejgneur^Fijin-^  conio to Nelson yesterday was an  event of very special interest to  every member of the"-. Roman  Catholic faith. His excellency  spent the entire'day here, met  many of the members of his church  and departed leaving a very pleasant impression behind. The apostolic delegate traveled without  ostentation. He was attended only  by his seeretary.father Fisher, aud  was accompanied by bishop Donten-  will who remains ��� with him until  tho limits of the bishopric of British  Columbia are reached. The distinguished visitor was met at the  depot by fathers Ferlaml and Cote.  During his stay he was a guest at  the parsonage where a number of  citizens called to pay their respects.  Yesterday afternoon Mgr. Falconio  was taken over the Hall Mines  smelter with father Ferland aud R.  Kerr. Tlie party was piloted by J.  J. Campbell who explained the process of smelting at length.  Last night a most interesting  service took place at the, church of  'Mary Immaculate. After the usual  benediction .a delegation consisting  of T. J. Scanlan,-R.Kerr, Martin  O'Reilly and J. O. Patenaude presented an address to his excellency,  assuring him on behalf of the Catholics of Nelson of the honor his visit  conferred and of their love and  reverence for the head of tho  church, pope Leo. Tho hope was  also expressed that his holiness  might speedily become reinstated  in his rightful position as temporal  ruler of the holy city. Mgr. Fal-  conio's response was received by  the congregation standing.   He re-1  fferred eloquently to the unity of  the Catholic church throughout the  world, and after enlarging.on this  idea at some length* gave expression to the great pleasure  it afforded him to see Nelson's  handsome church and the convent  now in course, of erection. These  facts assured him that the Catholics of Nelson were doing all in  their power to follow the directions  of the church and to rear their children in the love of God and country. His holiness pope Leo appreciated the devotion of .Canadian  Catholics, and had sent them a special blessing. Mgr. Falconio then  dispensed the papal blessing, a ceremony of marked solemnity.,  Sharkey Won't Fight. _  New York, October 25.���Tom  Sharkey today made a public answer to Tom O'Rourke's challenge  in behalf of Joe Walcott.

Hono Kong, October 25.���Advices from .Lien Chu on the north  river say that the American mission  property there is threatened with  destruction by Boxers, who have  posted the following. proclamation:  "We have organized to protect our  property and our homes and we  rely upon one another to support  the order to drive out the foreign  devils. They are mad, their folly  passes description. They are the  usurpers' of our land. They disturb'  our borders. In all the provinces  and prefectures chapels have, been  opened and our people are deceived,-  while the foreigners grow fat on  the revenues of China, insulting  our officials and. merchants and  seizing our temples and palaces.  Rip them open and disembowel  them^-  "The emperor is indulgent and  permits this. Who can fortell the  intentions of the foreign devils.  Day by day, they act more outrageously. When we behold the  present condition of affairs, our  hearts are bruised with grief.  Therefore we have organized our  strength to destroy the devouring  wolf throughout the empire."  The Boxers took the American  Presbyterian mission buildings, but  have not destroyed them. The  rebellion is spreading along the  PJast and North rivers in the province of Kwang Si. It is supposed  to be aimed at the overthrow of  tlie Manchu dynasty, but the reports are so contradictory that it is  next to impossible to tell what is  intended. In Canton the Chinese  officials are taking tho insurgents  so lightly that the foreigners believe it will bo very difficult to  suppress.  Has Occupied the Town. .  Lonoon, October 25.���The following dispatch from general  Gaseloe, commander of the Indian  troops at Pao Ting Fu, has been received by the secretary of state for  India, lord George Hamilton: "Pao  Ting Fu, October 20.���The allied  troops under my command arrived  here yesterday. British, Gorman,  French and Italian guards have  been posted at the gates. Today  all the generals with small escorts  went through the town, after  which they arranged for the allotment of quarters for occupation.  I shall keep most of the British in  camp for the present. Am awaiting orders from Walderseo regarding their future disposition."  IlAzioi.TON, Pennsylvania, October  25.���The mine workers strike has  been declared off against all companies which have agreed to the  miners' demands.  IlAZEi/roN, Pennsylvania, October  25.���The following statement was  given out for publication by president Mitchell, of the United Mine  Workers: Temporary headquarters, United Mine Workers of America, Hazelton, Pennsylvania, October 25.���To the miners and mine  workers of the anthracite region���  Gentlemen: After carefully canvassing the entire strike situation,  wo, your officers, district and national, have concluded that your  victory is so nearly complete that  no good end can be served by continuing tho strike longer. The'con-  test has been in progress for thirty-  nine days and the companies employing you, have, with few exceptions, signified their willingness to  pay the scale of w^gos formulated  by the Scranton convention of October 12th and 13th. We are aware  that some disappointment aud dissatisfaction has been caused by the  failure of the operators in district 1  and 7 to separate the reduction in  the price of powder from the advance in wages, but after careful  inquiry, we are satisfied that each  mine employee will actually receive  an advance of 10 per cent on the  wages formerly paid. -  In the SchuylKill and Lehigh regions the largest companies have  agreed that the sliding scale should  be "suspended;-"! .and' thatvsvagep)  should rernaiu stationary at 10 per  cent until April 1st,1901, thus removing one of the iniquities of  which you have complained for  many years.  -   While it is true that you  have  not secured redress for   all   your  '*     -" -.i-*'__l  wrongs, while it is true that the in-~^P  crease in your   earnings will not~';,��L  fully compensate you for* the ardu- ?'$%l  ous labor you are compelled to per- :>fj'|  form in the mines, you have e3-"il  tablished a powerful organization, {'_��  which if maintained and co'nductiedS^  on business principles will enable}-^  you to regulate many of your Joeal f<?__  grievances and "make your employ-..-i%|  ment less hazardous aud more pro'-'^-JjT  fi table than before the strike began'.^^l  Tlie companies   agree' in"- their^'jM  notices to take up with their.' own'���-��._'  employees all grievances complained'i-i^\  of.

The company refused to deal with their  union. Yesterday the strikers prevented the company from shipping  goods and today held up the company's coal pile. Tho local police  are powarless. The company had  to_have_ooal_ or shut down, conse-  queiitly a message was sent to  Montreal asking for military assistance. It arrived at 4:30 this afternoon and consisted of two companies of the Royal Scots. The  embargo on the coal pile was  promptly removed. At dusk a big  crowd gathered and there was every  evidence of trouble. About 8:30 a  crowd of strikers aud sympathizers  gathered at the Empire mill and  stoned tho windows. Troops charged  the mob with fixed bayonets. They  were driven back. Eight men were  wounded, two of them seriously.  The strikers had 15 men injured,  one fatally. Reinforcements have  been asked for from Montreal and  word has been received that 300  men and medical assistance would  arrive at 2 a.m. The condition of  affairs is very serious.

Turner, minister of  finance, who is touring the Boundary district, stated that it was not  likely that the government would  build the Victoria, Vancouver &  Eastern railway, and that instead  they were considering the building  of a road from the Boundary west  to Penticton. When this is completed a"fast line of steamers would  be put on Okanogan lake, thus connecting the new road with the  Shuswap -it Okanogan branch,  thereby lessening the time between the Boundary towns and the  Coast by one clay and effecting a  large saving in passenger and  freight rates.

With the present division of forces  voters in bunches of sixty are  worth looking after.  It is not-likely that the city  council will entertain any proposition" for lighting the streets front  the tramway company or any  other corporation. The council  may entertain a proposition for  furnishing power from any one  that has power to sell. But dual  ownership in electric lighting in  Nelson will not for one instant bo  entertained.  Just.at what time the Evening  Miner became a recognized  Conservative paper, history revealeth not.  TherO lias been a suspicion,  however; in these parts for  some time,  ' that the Miner was the recognized:  organ of any party or clique  who  had a dollar, and the "price"  may  be considered exorbitant when the  ��� value'of the services  rendered  is  taken into account.  ������-"The Evening Miner of Nelson  says it is the only recognized Conservative paper in Yale-Cariboo  district that is not carrying in its  advertising columns the card of the  Conservative candidate. It is just  possible [that tho Conservatives do  not recognize the Miner'as'an organ  of their party; and it is just possible,  besides, that the managers of the  campaign know best how to spend  The city council should not forget  one thing,- that is, the people of Nelson do not- want to be mixed' up  with" the' tramway company- and  the"Bonniugton'Falls power company in its ownership- of the electric lighting plant. If the tramway  company'can sell "power that is generated" by 'the" Bonnington" Falls  power compjtny, then' why does1 it  not collect "the monthly "sum that  P. Burns- & Co. pay for power?  /The truth of the matter is, the tramway company lias' an" agreement  ���with the'Bonnington Falls power  companythat is so one-sided that  it is no agreement at all. The city  should steer'clear of the whole out--  a .1  Bt.'    The Evening Miner is trying to  create dissensions in the Conservative ranks. If it were not an accepted legend that the Miner could  not be purchased,- the impression  might go abroad that'some- designing Liberal had" been- "seeing"the  amateur editor of that publication.1  The'young man is too honorable  for that sort of thing. - Indeed,' it  is unnecessary to mention this i'aet,:  for does he not say that the Miner  "has done its duty, and that,'too,  __-<as-__it__has_always__-done.--without.  "price,"providing, of course,"nothiug  in this choice sentenco may betaken  as' referring to dealings with' the  Hall committee during the provincial campaign.  Tub Conservatives "will-not'have  anything to do withthe'newspaper  that was the organ of the Mine  Owners'"Association. The Liberals  will not touch it. The Independent  Labor party cannot patronize it  because ' it called the members of  tho party anarchists and thugs.  Tiie newspaper referred to is the  Evening Miner of Nelson; a newspaper that never supports a candidate for high office without demanding tribute. For once, the  candidates of all -the political parties refused to have anything to do  with it, and the editor of the venal  sheet laments the :fact in a column  editorial,-then abuses the editor of.  The Economist and the'-;editor of  The Tims.;nk for having the hardi-  .hood to exercise their political  rights without first receiving permission from the Miner.  If there is one thing more than  another that has characterizeil the  policy of the Liberal-Conservative  party, it has been their ability to  conceive and carry out great ideas.  The splendid foresight and sagacity  displayed by the late sir John Mac-'  donald and his colleagues, are in  the light of the tremendous developments that have taken place  in Western Canada since the inception of the C. P. R., truly wonderful. There are many who admire  Cecil Rhodes and see in him the  foremost imperialistic mind of the  day, in his immense ideas regarding  the development' of Africa, but  great as they are iu territorial expansion, they will hardly compare  with those that culminated in the  binding together "of scattered provinces by a three thousand-mile railroad projected into what was then  an absolute wilderness, having no  natural productiveness and across  a sea of mountains where the cost  was brought to no mean item per  foot. And this same Liberal-Conservative party which went boldly  ahead some twenty years ago on  this great enterprise is the one for  which those who are wise and wish  to see a masterly, active, western  policy pursued will vote for at the  coming contest.  Tt is to be hoped that all those  who wish to have a clear and' concise statement of the reason why A.  IT. MaeNeill should be elected next  month will attend- this evening at  the opera house, where they will  hear -speeches by the candidate,  mayor Goodeve of Rossland and  others. , Judging by theviews given  in the'recent issues of this paper of  the'Liberal'and Labor'platforms, a  cordial'invitation-mny well-be extended to those who coutemplate'  voting for either 'W. A. Galliher or  Chris Foley, so that the'.cobwebs  that are at present' clouding their  minds may be dusted'away.  ���^���^���*__v ��>-__*. *^. ���^���^..���^���W"^'^  '��  ERMINE & GO  ets and Men's Furnishings  .Ladies*  Department;  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  'S  mm  u  ^Bl0���^.-v.-|  ���BRACING;^  ftoCvj, 'Amii- '2X,A-  Wilson  I Diva  Port  Specially roeomtnended  lor  dyspepsia,"  loss 'ot  appetite,   (.lceplf-ssneart,  indlgoition,    weakness  r       from 'whatever 'cause,  '  nervousness,"      fever..,  .      consumption,    malaria  :i*   and general debility.-  Women complain of a  tircrl feeling.

The one industry on 'which the prosperity of this constituency is  almost Avholly-dependent is mining; anil we believe that our mining'in-  dustries are as fairly entitled' to protection as the manufacturing industries of Eastern" Canada ; therefore, we advocate that the "duties on-lead  "and^lcadTprodiicts-b"oinci,eased7's?rt-iat"t}re^  imposed by the United Stateson the .same articles.  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 bo that of pur 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 tlie adoption of the principles of tlie 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'is;ini^e.that this constituency shall-be given representation acccirding.to its population.

Morrison,  the well-known Canadian newspaperman, now serving with the-  Canadian troops in South Africa,  does not hesitate to denounce the  emergency rations scandal' of the  Laurier government. In a letteiy  to a friend in Ottawa, lieutenant  .Morrison says:  "It is very sad about young:Uor-  den ; he was a gallant .officer, and  would have been mentioned in dispatches if he had lived. As you  sasr, the event will soften the feeling .against the minister on the,  emergency rations scandal, but it  was a disgraceful thing for all that.  To give a soldier a useless emergency ration is like throwing a useless life-preserver-to a sinking man.  The ration is never, opened, except  in cases of great extremity, such as  the 2oth of July,.when: we made a  forced march of 21 miles to Balmoral in bitter cold. We had  started before daylight with liard-  | Tub Tribune has placed a part of one column  mi r.lie: disposal -of the Independent...LibomH,  v hose views will he expressed therein from  r me to time dnrlug I he campaign, A like prl-  . vil ge is accorded the Conservatives and the  l.itiKrala.   ,  Tlie workinginen of British Columbia are pleased to acknowledge  tlio friendly expression of their Conservative friends "that is is refresh-  ing for them; to believe; that' they  will poll a good majority above  I heir opponents in the Slocan district" and beg to assure both- Liberals and_;Conservatives - that they  iii* end to do so. ���  The statement that "every horny,  handed son of toil" is not necessarily a "labor man" is such a palpable absurdity that it is only surprising that the writer was sufficiently educatedto be able to spell  the words correctly, although that  was probably owing to the  expert assistance of the compositor.  We can assure our friends of both  parties that. the workers of our  western province are possessed of  such keen intelligence that they are  thoroughly ..capable. of estimating  the value of each-of the old parties.  They know how to value the  smiling acquiescence and political  sympathy expressed-for their welfare, which, when iu power, usually  ends in a contemptuous indifference  and total disregard of their previous  promises, and the, sturdy.-meii of  our western unions are determined  ~ to show their brethren in the. east  that they will be united in a solid  phalanx to obtainrthe proper.repre-  sentation in their house-of legislation that will cause their grievances  to be^mlressed and their ,rights to  be established.-  Now, fellow workers, you have  ' tlie chance of showing your power  and letting the world know that  you are alive to the importance of  .raking .advantage of the opportunity. In this province, you are  "thoroughly organized,, your- labor  associations are a credit tothe-com-  uiunily, your leaders are manly  and straightforward, and you have  selected a candidate who has no nxe  to grind and is wholly unselfish in  Ids wish to1 ameliorate'the conditions of his co-workers and to insist  upon their rights being . legally  established.  Tho intelligent -worker, in the  election,; will, treat .with- contempt  the gushing effusions of- the.' fawning political hacks of either party  and will rally round the banner of  freedom aud equality. We are  bound to acknowledge -with shame  that boodling, corruption and every  conceivable form .of misgovernment  is not restricted to either ��� party,  -and���every���honest^workor���must-  exercise all his influence to elect his  own candidate in order to counteract the political evils which are unfortunately becoming so prevalent.  Now is the time,, citizens,: mechanics, miners, laborers, :all must unite  not to merely oppose those whose  interests are prejudicial to yours,  but to have your .own.,representative in the house, ever on. the alert  to champion your cause. All paltry dissensions must be discontinued, every selfish consideration'  must vanish, and in, order to secure  your aim let your watchword,  "Unity and Fraternity," be carried  out to its.fullest extent.

None of our  battery died,;but seven are in the  'hospital..at' Pretoria from the effects  of that; night. The < whole ration,  even to the box and label, was so  cheap and nasty that we thought  it had been given to the contingent  by some firm as a cheap ad. We  never imagined it was a government affair until we saw the row in  the papers."  Historical Errors.  Spokesman-Re vie w.  "In 1S90," says . the Brooklyn  Eagle, "the people voted on the  personality of Mr. Bryan, on 10 to  to 1, on.government.by injunction,  on tlie independence of the judiciary  and on the paramouritcy of national  law. Exactly the same subjects  are before the-people again. In 1898  the beginning of expansion were  brought-befbre-thc people., There  was opposition to it then, but-the  president of the United States put  it before the people in a series of  remarkable addresses. The people ���  elected a congress in favor .of it,  thus anticipating the only issue.be-.  fore us in 1900 that was not -.before *  usinlS90."  After   citing   historical contests,  wherin-the-people'refused to reverse their, political judgment, the:  Brooklyn paper says :    "Those who.  suppose that in 1900 tho people will,  reverse - their   verdict  of  189U  on  issues - they   then   decided   should  remember that this people -never  reversed a national verdict- in . all  their history.     They have invariably repeated every verdict that  has been challenged."   .  This is a shallow, reading of .history. The American people have  again and again reversed their  political..verdicts. Four years ago  they reversed their immemorial  verdict for the- double standard;  and-elected to try the single gold  standard. In 1884, when they defeated, Blaine, they reversed their  verdict in support of a high tariff.  In 1888 they elected Harrison and  reversed their verdict for low tar-  iff;aud in 1892 they swung back to  OleA'eland.and "tariff reform."  They have reversed their verdict  on .the   "bloody   shirt",   and   the  VASES, Metal HandrPainted, in Different Colors.  ^CANDELABRAS, in Silver, Brass and  Enameled.

In 1792 .they voted against the.  "personality of John .Adams;".;four,  years later they elected-Adams. In  1792 and again in, 1790 n.Tefferson  was a candidate and was defeated.;  In the third contest in 1S00 he was,  elected.  In 1824 Jackson was defeated; in  182S he was elected.  It is straining history for the  Ragle to say that the people voted  for expansion in 1898. In that contest we were emerging from a successful war, with Spain, and the issues of expansion, "imperialism";  and "militarism" hadscarcely been;  broached. In that contest the Democracy made the fight on the raalr.  administration of the war department, and the verdict was so close  that the republicans earned the  house of representatives by the  narrow margin of 13."-  What tho American people may  have done in one election is a poor  criterion of what they will do in  the next.

TninuNE contains a greater  number of advertisements than any  daily paper in the province, not  counting the dailies printed in Victoria and Vancouver.  .Tames Cfilker, George Steele, Fred  Bradley and Charles Griffin have  returned-, from a shooting trip to  Kootenay Landing. They had  fairly,good sport, but tho weather  was erratic, and several days were  practically lost because of heavy  wind. '���?:  David Mark Cfirley, will occupy  the chair at the opera house tonight,  which is a guarantee that all the  orators will receive fair" treatment.  It is expected that both candidates  MaeNeill and Galliher will speak.  Candidate Foley is in Fast Kootenay and cannot be present.  One-third of the advertisements  that appear in the New Denver  Ledge are of merchants doing busi-  nessin Nelson. This is an indication that the business men of Nelson are rustlers, and, also, that they  know a good advertising medium  when they see it.  Weather permitting, the gun  club will shoot two matches; this  afternoon and wind up the trap  shooting season. The fate of the  three badges presented to tho club  some time ago for competition will  be decided, and the event will probably attract a large turnout of  members. If the weather is unfavorable a further postponement  will be made.  - The many friends of Mrs. 15. R  McDermid and Mrs. S. D. Lester of  this city will regret to hear of the  death of their father, Mr. A. P.  Coddington, which occurred at his  home in Tecumseh, Michigan, on  Tuesday evening. The sad "news  was quite unexpected. Although  Mr. Coddington had not been well  of late, his illness was not considered serious.  At yesterday's sitting of the  assi'/e court J. H. Bowes applied to  the court to quash the conviction  of John Bulko, aged nine years,  sentenced to two years in the reformatory for the theft of several  ducks at Slocan City, on the ground  that theconvicting justices of the  peace exceeded their powers. The  motion was granted and the Bulko  lad was set at liberty.  An observing man visiting Moyie  would notice that the tramway that  is working so successfully at the St.  Eugene mill was built by B. C. Rib-  letof Nelson; that the hardware  and.mining, supplies bear shipping  tags of Nelson hardware merchants;  that the castings are all from  the  the company located a branch yard  at Rossland, which is already handling a large quantity of lumber.  A. Ferland & Co. are issuing invitations to their customers to  attend the classes in fine art needlework which Mrs. W. D. Cranston  will open on Monday morning. Mrs.  Cranston, who is a graduate of the  Ontario School of Decorative Art,  will arrive in Nelson today. Messrs.  Ferland &.. Co. will make an announcement; tomorrow as to the  hours of the classes.  Plans Accepted.  Tlie plans prepared by Kwart ��fc  Carrie for the addition to tho general hospital have been accepted by  the directors and tenders will be  taken when the tracings .are completed. The addition is in the  shape of a neat cottage containing  four large rooms on the ground  floor and two other large apartments on the second floor. It will  be heated with hot air from a  furnace in the basement and lighted  by electricity. The rooms are  arranged to enable the medical  staff to attend to patients with the  maximum degree of expedition! and  conveniences tof various descriptions  are provided. The structure will  cost about $2000 complete.  The Bridge at Robson.  ��� F. J. Cambie of Vancouver, resident engiueer of the Pacific division  of the C. P. R., is in tlie city for a  few days, his mission being to get  the work on. the Columbia river  bridge at Robson under way. He  states that operations will be commenced within a few days, as the  contractor who will build the stonework has his plant on the way to  Robson. The bridge is to bo of  iron and masonry, and while it will  only, be in third-place among the  bridges of the province in point of  length, it will have two 200-foot  spans, which are longer than any  others in British,,Columbia. The  channel at the site of the bridge is  27 feet deep at low water, but only  one central pier will be located at  deep water, the two long spans extending in each direction, toward  the shallower water. The swinging  section to permit of steamers passing is located near the east bank of  the river. When the work is  started an engineer will be located  permanently on the ground until  construction is completed. The  undertaking is a large one and the  work is to be proceeded with as  rapidly as circumstances will  permit. ���   '    "'I1'  MINING   STOCK  QUOTATIONS.

In referring to the lumber interests of Kootenay yesterday mention was omitted of the Porto Rico  Lumber Company, whoso head office is in Nelson. The firm have  had a busy season and their mill at  Porto Rico siding has been cutting  steadily all season/ The logs handled  by the mill are cut on Nelson &  Fort Sheppard h\nd aud the railroad pays tho royalty to tlie government, and the oversight occured  through this fact.
