Array DAILY EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  MONDAY MORNING OCTOBER 29  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  DAYS OF OLD, THE DAYS OF GOLD  And the Days of Forty-Nine, Liable to Be Reproduced  in British Columbia.  THE GREEK BEARING THE NAME FULL OF POSSIBILITIES  No section in the immediate  -��icinity of Nelson has achieved  more prominence during the .season  just closing than that along Forty-  nine creek and tlie divide between  Forty-nine and Eagle creeks. The  district has tlie distinction of being  ' ��� one of tlie oldest in the Nelson  mining division, Lmt its progress  has been slow for various reasons.  This year has scon greater advances  than tho preceding half dozen years  and it would seem as though the  turning place iu the long lane had  hi'en reached at last.    Some of tho  finest specimens of lloat obtainable  anywhere have come from  Forty-  nine creek.and it has always been  regarded-as a most promising  section, but it  was  only  within  the  past few mouths that capital went  in and commenced work on a scale  - which   will prove  the permanent  merit of the country.    The bonding  of the May aud Jennie and Northern  Light groups and  the a commencement   of    the    wagon    road    are  features   which    may    fairly    be  said to mark the beginning of an  era of   unusual activity.      Forty-  nine creek is staked from mouth to  source, probably six miles in all,  and its locations in some instances  have been worked from eight to  eleven years. Some of these old locations are admittedly rich and would  have  been taken over long since  L>y companies   had  an agreement  - as - to", the financial arrangements  been arrived "at.   The parties who  a'fe working along Forty-nine predict that their sectionjwill-eyentu-.  -ally be the most active and'-pro-  ductive portion of this district, and  l he strongest evidence of their confidence is the manner in which they  have held on to claims year after  year, disregarding the attractions  of   alleged   greener fields beyond.  Up to tlie present the prospector  -   has had the creek all to himself;  but there are indications  on  every  hand that capital is directing the  attention to the section which its  possibilities would seem to merit.  The claims on the lower stretches  " of the creek are, generally speaking, free-milling properties with a  low or medium grade of ore. The  leads are strong, however, and the  conditions are such that they can  be worked on a ijrofitable basis.  The upper half of the section includes many concentrating propositions, the ore carrying as high as  $50 or $00 and copper to the ex-  ���tent-in���soiue-casea-of���25-pei-cenfc���  Some claims carry free gold, and  assays have been had of over $100.  Taking the section as a whole, it  may be described as undeveloped.  AVith few exceptions the claims  rarely have over a couple of hiui-  - 11 red feet of work done, but even  this is sufficient to demonstrate  their value as properties.  The May and Jennie is perhaps  ~ the best known property on..the  creek because of its having been  bonded this summer by A. H. Kelly  to .T. J. Fleutot at a figure known  to be in. the neighborhood of  $100,000. Some S00 feet of work  has been done on the group showing strong leads of free milling ore,  an average of which is said to be  about $150. The bondholders have  taken hold in good style and now  have a crew atwor.kerecting cabins  and makiiig^ready for an active  season^ It is understood that when  the .wagon road is opened up a  quantity ot machinery will be taken  in, and a stamp mill is known to be  one of the features of the1 program.  The fifteen or sixteen men now employed will be-increased materially  during the winter. /  * The Northern Light group further up stream is now under bond  to the Imperial Development Syndicate of Nelson, which has a small  crew at work. A. H. Gracey, engineer for the syndicate, states that  work has not advanced sufficiently  to warrant any rosy predictions as  to the group, but it is significant  that the property was only taken  up after an exhaustive examination, and that the bondholders are  well enough pleased to continue  work all winter.  The Referendum group is fairly  well known because of it having  been stocked some time ago. The  property was shut down during  the spring and summer, but work  is now being started again under  the direction of Charles Parker,  mining engineer. One drawback to  the Referendum is that it is a  shaft proposition, and water causes  trouble at this time of year. These  difficulties will be overcome, however, if tho company concludes to  continue work, and it will surprise  no one acquainted with the vicinity  if the Referendum becomes a profitable proposition at au early date.  The Pingree. group is among the  best-known properties along the  divide of the creek. It is owned by  John McRae, Angus Shaw and .Tohn  A. McRae, and . comprises the Pingree, Mayflower, Blake, H. G. N.  and Mayflower Fraction claims.  Mr. McRae is just winding up his  season's work on the group and has  stated that the property is showing  up remarkably well. A - 35-foot  shaft has been sunk on the Mayflower. On the Pingree 75 feet of  tunneling has been driven and a 30-  foot crosscut is now under way 50  feet lower. The other claims have  been well prospected on the surface, showing well-defined ledges  running across the entire group.  Asbays have been taken from the  property as high as $00.  The Steele brothers, George and  .Teff, have a promising proposition  in the King of Forty-nine." They  have 95 feet of shaft on the two  ledges, which have been worked up  to-the present. A feature of the  . King of Forty-nine is its perpendicular walls, which are said'to be  almost as regularrin. conformation  as an artificial wall. .  The oldest location in the section  is the Paradise and Majestic owned  by Paddy Miles which was staked  eleven years ago under the old  mineral act. Some samples from  the Majestic are magnificent specimens .of-of ore carrying free gold,  one of these being in the possession  of Thomas Ward. Negotiations  have been carried on at various  times for the purchase of this property but no sale has been made up  to tho present time.  The Royal Arthur group is well  known. It contains eight claims  all crown granted and a considerable amount of work has been done  above the amount required to crown  grant. Sol Johns of the Royal  hotel, John McLatchie, P. L. S., and  others own the Royal Arthur. ^  Alex McDonald of Nelson owns  -the-Gold���Hill���andHSilver-Grown-  claims on which he has several men  working at the present time. It is  a free milling proposition with leads  of two to three feet on the surface.  The reports from the property for  the last two months' work are  awaited with interest.  J. C. aud Dave Porter have the  J. C. P. and Homes take claims  across the creek and a little above  the May and Jennie. They have  done work on the claims from time  to time and have strong leads with  a fine showing of ore. Samples of  the white quartz carrying copper  pyrites from the property can be  seen at J. Lawrence's store.  The North Star group has been  brought to the front on various  occasions, the last being early in  the summer when the group was  bonded to San Francisco'capitalists.  The bond was not taken up, and it  is understood that another deal is  on the tapis.  R. B. Dougan has several claims  which are now attracting attention.  He has been working them for some  .years and has a large amount of  development done. Joe Chipman  owns a number of locations which  he has worked for eight or nine  years. W. Murphy, Larry Gallagher and Mike Monahan are also  among the well-knowu prospectors  who are working on Forty-Nine.  In addition to the above mentioned  properties there are numerous  claims which have been worked  more or less and that will come to  the front when the Forty-Nine  creek boom starts in earnest.  The wagon road is well under  w/��y and will probably bo continued  to the May and Jennie property  this winter.  Slocan Lake'Ore Shipments.  Thirty-five hundred and sixty-  nine tons of ore have been shipped  from mines on Slocan lake since  January 1st last. The' shippers  were as follows:  TonH.  Kntcrpriao  '.ISO  Bosun yo  Wahelleld (concent rnte<-l 1180  Arlington (MO  Vancouver    100  Hewed 7">  Black I'rlnce ��0  Kilo  20  Two Friends  HO  Galena mines 20  Emily Edith  20  Hartnoy  20  Capella    7  Ncepawa    7  The Bosun ships from a landing  near New Denver; the Enterprise  and Neepawa from Enterprise landing at the mouth of Ten-mile creek;  the Emily Edith, Hewett, Vancouver, Wakefield and Galena mines  from Silverton, and the Arlington,  Black Prince, Kilo and Two Friends  from Slocan City. It is safe to estimate the value of tlie 35G9 tons  at $300,000,  THE EMPEROR HAD TO SHOUT  NO HONOR AMONG THIEVES  HOW ALLEGED SWINDLE ON THE  C. P. B.WAS WORKED.

Was   Hard of  Hearing and William  Showed a Disposition to Ignore-Him  on Important Occasions.  Berlin,     October    28. ��� Prince  Hohenlohe, in conversation with a  representative of   the ~ Associated  Press, made some interesting statements regarding his resignation of  the chancellorship.     Although expressing himself with great caution,  he cited as the principal reason for  resigning   the fact that   he   had  noticed for sometime a growing desire   to ignore him on important  occasions. " He admitted that, his  increasing   deafness,   especially in  the left ear, had made it- annoying  for emperor William' to .converse  with him. ' While prince Hohenlohe  would not say precisely what very  recent   occasion  had   particularly  emphasized    this    inclination- . to  ignore him, he asserted that this  was the   immediate   cause  of his  going to Hamburg with a written  request   to   relinquish   his official  burdens.  This, he said, he presented in person to emperor William, who  seemed astonished, but replied that  in view of the advanced age of the  prince he would not urge him to  reconsider the resignation. It also  appears that his parting with the  kaiser was with affection and that  both are on good terms. When  prince Hohenlohe returns to Berlin  for the winter he intends to attend  the courts and its festivities; his  physicians having urged him to this  -conrseras���they���consider-that-the~  total absence of excitement would  endanger his life. He is about to  go to his ancestral home at Schillings Fliers. Later he will go to  Munich and then to Mo ran, in the  Austrian Tyrol, or to Italy, where  he hopes to get relief from an annoying cough.  Miner Killed at Moyie.  Moyje, October '..28���[Special to  The Tribune].���On Friday night at  9 o'clock Thomas Munn, a miner,  was instantly killed when putting  iu a plug in a boulder in front of a  raise chute in a stope. The chute  bursted from the weight of ore, and  tho timbers and ore buried him.  He was taken out within 20 minutes. A gash over the left eye and  a broken nose were the only visible  injuries. Men working near heard  the crash and escaped. The above  facts were elicited at the coroner's  inquest yesterday, the jury being  D. J. Elmer (foreman), J. Mc-  Eachern, W. Reid, A. Stephenson,  T. Lee and P. J. McMahon. Munn  leaves a wife in Spokane. He was  a member of the miners' union of  Moyie, aud he will be buried here  tomorrow.  Weil-Known in Shipping Circles.  San Francisco, October 28.���  Captain H. T. Emory, manager and  secretary of the Merchants' Exchange, died in this city today after  a long illness. Captain Emory was  well-known in shipping circles  throughout the world. He was 64  years of age.  Brussels, Oct. 29.-���The Transvaal agency announces that Kruger  will be in Marseilles November 12.  Station agents on the C. P. R.  and other railroads who wish to defraud the, company have -various  opportunities to work their game,  and F. M. Medhnrst, formerly agent  at Cranbrook)��� struck a scheme  whicli worked' Smoothly'for "some  time. His plans necessitated the  assistance of another agent and the  former agent at Moyie, L; M. Mansfield, went into the proposition.  This accomplished the fraud was  successfully worked and might still  have been making' money for- the  alleged conspirators had' not' outside circumstances intervened.  It is claimed that Mansfield sent  goods to Cranbrook without making out' bills of; lading. - Medhurst  received and deliyere.1 the merchandise, collecting kin vthe usual  way and ..without,departing.from  the regular "tariff. No bills of lading having been-made out, no  record was take>n, and.a snug sum  was realized. .It is stated that the  proceeds of the| alleged- steal were  to have been divided equally, and  that Medhurst's failure or refusal  to do the. square thing led' Mansfield to split .in the hope that by  turning queen's evidence he would  secure revenge,on his pal and save  his own skin. ' Tlie C.' P. R. police  state that, they- have a confession  from Mansfield*- implicating Medhurst to the;-hilt. The latter was  admitted - to - bail. at Cranbrook.  Further developments of an interesting nature.are expected in'a day  or two." ���'.���,'������'   '���  -  WRITTEN    BYll CONSERVATIVES.  Ore Shipments to Trail Smelter.  The smelter at Trail is keeping  up its record. Last week it received -1050 1-2 tons of ore from  mines in the Slocan, East Kootenay  and Boundary camps and at Rossland. The following are the individual shippers:  Tons.  England Begins to Weary of Hearing So Often of the  Boer Successes.  Confer Star  I.e Uol   Iron Mask..  War Eajjle  B. C.......  AthclBton..

Alike privilege is accorded  the Labor party and the Liberals.]  Some people are magnificently  dense and beautifully precise. - It  is given out - that - the statement  made under this heading, that  every "horny handed son of toil"  is not necessarily "a labor man." In  simpler phrase let us say then that  every man who styles himself a  laborer does not necessarily endorse  ..the ten commandments of the Labor  party, as given in these columns,  notwithstanding any fraternal bond  that may unite"-'him otherwise- to  the members of that party.  As a matter'of fact the working  classes have never had a better  friend than the Liberal-Conservative party. From the time of the  downfall-of-the-McKenzie-govern-  ment, when the manufacturing industries of the Dominion were  drooping from unfair competition,  down to today, the great labor  marts of Canada are the result of  the national policy which made  possible the establishment of great  enterprises within our gates and  protected them from bitter American competition. And all these are  now giving employment to tens of  thousands of working men, a large  number of whom recognizing, these  facts will vote,for tho party that  has always advocated "Canada for  the Canadians," and that party will  be represented in Yale;Curiboo by  A. H. MaeNeill.  Like unto tho views of tho Socialist���beautifully impracticable is  the platform of the Labor party.  It's all very well to talk about  "paltry dissensions being discontinued," "selfish considerations vanished," "unity," "fraternity" and  many more chimerical ideas, but  what we are called upon to consider is a business proposition, and  that is which of tlie two great parties will give this Canada of ours  the best government. Let the electors of Yale-Cariboo figure out  what they can hope to obtain for  this district if Chris Foley is elected  with either a Conservative or Liberal government in power at Ottawa. He may possess the oratory  of a Henry George or the tenacity  of a John Houston, but he would be  absolutely ignored and find great  difficulty in obtaining the most  pressing appropriations for the district. As things now are, the Labor party is merely an idea, it may  come to be recognized as a power  The accession of marquis  power has been received in a  of congratulation.  Ito to  spirit  MINERS WILL RESUME WORK  PRINCIPAL     COLLIERIES     HAVE  POSTED REQUISITE NOTICES.  Increased Wages for the Men Is the  Satisfactory Conclusion of the ,  Great Coal Strike.  WiiaivRSnARRK, Pennsylvania, October 28.���All the coal companies  in the Wyoming valley with a few  exceptions have posted notices  granting their employees the ten  per cent asked for by the Scranton  convention. The exceptions are  individual operators who do not  employ many hands. But it is said  that when the men employed at  the collieries report for,work "tomorrow they will be told that they  will receive the same ��� wages paid  by the other companies. The King-  .ston Coal _Company.,.'Jiad"aiotices'  posted "today'" granting 'tlie"irier"ea*se/  This company employs "2200 men  and was the last of the big individual companies in the valley to  grant the increase. The officials of  the Susquehanna company had a  conference with their employees on  Saturday night and agreed to  grant them the advance.  Preparing for Work ,  PniiaAnBTaPiiiA, Pennsylvania,  October 2S.���The Ledger in its coal  article tomorrow will say: "The  anthracite coal trade is everywhere  preparing for the resumption of  mining this week and a brisk season  at full work is anticipated at the  mines. ''t  COAT RIVER MINING NOTES  'Frisco Syndicate's Program.  Philip Corcoran, the engineer who  represents the Senator Byrnes syndicate of San Francisco, is expected  in Nelson within the next fortnight. The syndicate has bonded  a number of White Grouse properties, and Mr. Corcoran went south  about a month' ago to present his  reports on tho properties and make  further arrangements regarding  them. No official intimation iias  been given as to their program, but  the expectation is that beyond  prospect work little will be done  until spring. Tho syndicate's bonds  represent a very largo sum and  their course is being watched with  keen interest by Goat river district  mining men. In the event of their  taking up the bonds it is known  that tlie construction of a smelter  in the White Grouse section, convenient to the various .properties,  is a feature of the program outlined. Such an institution to handle  the copper ores of the district will  mean a big boom in mineral claims.  The same syndicate owns the Maple  Leaf property near the Poorman  mine, and a report is current that  they will commence active development this winter.  A deal was closed in the Goat  river' district tho other day by  which the Valparaiso Mining Company of Kaslo, operating-the Valparaiso group on Goat creek, have  acquired the Sunset, an extension  of their property, owned by August  Short and Henry Steffins. The sale  was made on the basis of $10,000  cash and 200,000 shares of Valpa- I  raisn stock.  departure   lias  long to permit  New York, October 28.���Referring to the renewed activity of the  Boers in South Africa and its effect  on the government's military policy, Mr. Ford  in his special cable  letter from   London  to   the New  York Tribune says: "The military  journals are greatly exasperated by  the recurrence of Boer activity in  South Africa.    The  critics do  not  hesitate to say that lord Roberts'  been   delayed   too  of a speedy settlement there, and that his method of  dealing with  the insurgents does  more lnirm to  his heart than his  head.   The Jacobsdahl  affair   has  been the last straw, and military  men   now   blurt. out  their impatience over the "employment of a  field marshal and an immense army  for the " suppression of brigandage  and   for , other   police   work   and  assert that lord Roberts can guin  no   further   distinction   in   South  Africa,   and   that   lord Kitchener  should be allowed a .free hand and  the means for operating with energy and mobilizing the disturbed  districts.  ���  The same authorities are opening  their eyes to the truth that the  presence of a large British force  will be required in South Africa  for a long time. Raiding and armed  resistance are in .progress simultaneously at a ' dozen" points long  distances apart, and there will be  great'risk in releasing the 10,000  Boer "prisoners now. under-' guard,  since there can be no guarantee tHat"  they will not reinforce' the . raiders^  and haye access'to secret stor.es '{of:  arms and ammunition:'*-'���' The" "pointf  now made by. military experts is  that there ��� will" be concurrent  necessity, for maintaining a large  army in ' South Africa and for  organizing another great force for  foreign emergencies and home defence. They hold that the attitude,  not of the French government, but  of a large section of the French  people is hostile to England and  that it is actually necessary that  the British army should bo strengthened and rendered more efficient.  There is considerable Chauvinism  even, iu staid and sober England  when these dangers of foreign hostilities are made the basis for demands that the military establishment should be increased by 50,000  men.  Another significant fact is the  willingness of the forward party in  the army-to-makc-the-best-of���the-  present situation and assume that  lord Lansdowne will not bo displaced at the war office. The plea  offered is that there is no time to  Avaste and that the programme for  an increase of the military forces  needs to bo initiated at once and  that it is more important that this  increment of 50,000 men or a largo  proportion of it should be set out  in the army estimates than that  lord Lansdowne should be relieved  from duty at tho war office; So  much stress is laid by the professional elemdnt iu the army upon  the necessity for strengthening the  establishment with more officers,  more men and more guns that the  suspicion is excited that the reorganization of the military service  is a question of merely academic  interest."   The Agreement With Germany.  New York, October 2S.���Tn his  special cable letter from London  this morning Mr. Isaac N. Ford, referring to the understanding between Germany and England regarding China,.says: "English opinion, with hero and there a croaking  note of protest, continues favorable  to lord Salisbury's agreement with  Germany. Tho objectors urge that  he did the right tiling in a wrong  way in entering into a special agreement with Germany without securing the co-operation of the United  States and Japan and without acquainting Russia and France with  his design. The prevailing opinion  is that the agreement simply registers the principles of an enlightened  policy in which the world is agreed  and pledges to them the support of  the contracting powers and their  diplomatic co-operation in obtaining recognition for them. ���  The   third   clause   is not inter-y  preted as a menace of either pun-i  ishment or war,, in   certain   corir"  tingencies,   but   as   a    pledge . preconcerted action.which may exer<"i  cise   a   strong '.restraint upon-the,:  ambitions of Russia'aud France and.;,  prevent   the   occupation .of Man-T  churia.

He states   that   V  the property is" showing   up   un- "-  usually' well.    In   regard   to   the - /  strike reported recently Mr. Holden e  says:   "The*facts were greatly exaggerated.   On the upper level we  came into ore and have a paystreak , -  of ten  inches  which "is improving  steadily.    Tlie discovery was made  in the ordinary course of develop-,  ment   and   was found just" about  -whoro-we-figured-oiii���Jt-was-grati-1-^  fying, but hardly of  sufficient' importance to be heralded as  a strike  in view of what we expect the lead  to become when development has  advanced further."   The Tamarack  is   regarded   as   one of  tho   most  promising     propositions    on     the  creek.      Comfortable   cabins   have  just been completed and the crew  is settling down to a steady winter's work.   A  few shipments will  probably bo"'made duringr the next  few months, the ore being rawhided  down to  the  wagon   road.    Wiley  11.

At the Ottawa property, belong*  ing to Slocan City parties and adjoining tho Tamarack, development'  is progressing satisfactorily.'". High  grade ore, carrying native' silver,  has been found in promising  quantities.  Awaiting Trial.  William Harris of Sloean City  was brought to the provincial jail  on Saturday to await trial on the  charge of attempted suicide. Harris  is a mining man reputed to be fairly  well ofi'as the result of a successful turn in mining property. About  a month ago he shot hiiuself, the  bullet entering near the heart and  passing clean through his body  without causing a mortal wound.  Domestic troubles and liquor are  supposed to have caused the at>  tempt. Harris was taken to the  New Denver hospital and arrested  on recovering sufficient strength to  bo moved. He was brought in on  Saturday by constable Black of  New Denver and will probably be  released on bail today. THE TRTB1TNE:  NELSON B.

Steam power that is  available can be procured without  ^qny_iexpense_to the city for.installa-  tion of either boiler or engine at a  monthly rate of $5 per horse power  on a contract that can be terminated at any time on a month's  notice. The cost of installing a 50-  arc light dynamo and 50, lamps of  2000 candle power each should not  exceed $-1000. Making due allowances for depreciation of plant and  cost of trimming lamps would bring  tho cost of lighting the streets to a  figure in tho neighborhood of $150  per month, or $0 per month per  lamp. The city of Spokane paid  for tlie year ending June 30th, 1899,  the sum of $0017 for street lighting, or about 30 cents per head of  population. Cannot Nelson afford to  pay in the neighborhood of a dollar  a head until such time as adequate  power can be secured?  Tt seems strange that the men  charged with the conduct of the  postoffice business in this section  cannot adapt themselves to changed  conditions as other business men  so readily do.   The Canadian Pacific runs  trains   between   Nelson  and   Rossland   both   ways    every  morning.   These trains carry   the  mail for points in  Boundary   district,  but the mails from   Nelson  for Rossland and   from   Rossland  for Nelson are sent by way of trains  running over the Great Northern  system.    The   one   from  Rossland  reaches Nelson so late in the evening that it is seldom distributed  The   railway policy of the provincial -government has not been  announced from any source  that  can     be     deemed     authoritative.  Building railways to divert trade  from established towns in Kootenay  and Yale to towns on the coast will  not be considered a far-seeing railway   policy;   no more would   the  building of a railway to the north  end of Vancouver Island, in order  to shorten the time between coast  cities and Alaskan points. ' What  the people "want is a general act  that will allow the building of railways   anywhere   within   tlie province   without   special legislation.  If  the  government intends to go  further than this, let tlie policy be  a   broad-gauge.; one,   and not one  that will .merely tear   down   and  'depreciate values in one section in  order - to   build   up   and   enhance  values in another section.   If given  a free hand, railway men will build  all   the   railways   needed   in   the  southern   portion of the province  without a dollar or an acre of land  granted   in the [way.-.of subsidies.'  The southern portion of the province is no longer in need of the  nursing'bottle; it is lusty and able'  to take care of itself.   The northern  portion   of   the   province, on   the  other hand, needs developing.   It  has all the ontwa'rd indications of  having   great    natural    resources.  Why not build a railway through  it?    The   building   of   a   railway,  would attract thousands of adventurous men, who could prospect and  develop the country with the aid  of a railway.   The development of  that portion of the province would  not   tear   down any' section.   Inr  ahead, its development would build  up other Nelsons and Rosslands and  Greenwoods and Sandons and Ver��  -nonsr-_^.nd^inoreover,���the���coast  towns would receive a share of the  business that is always developed  in new sections of the province.   A  railway could be built in the north  without a dollar of cost to the province, and operated so as to be a  source of revenue.   There are not  less than 150,000,000 acres of public  lands in the north.   One-third of  this land will build and equip the  railway.    The  province need   not  operate it when built; let that be  done by privato parties.    Rut tho  province could control the rates for  both passengers and freight.   This  would be a step toward government  ownership of railways, and a step  in   the   right   direction.     Premier  Dunsmuir, be far-seeing   and you  will have the people behind you.  a bigger mistake in their lives."  .Tolm Houston.is today the same as  ever: a man with convictions of his  own and fearless in expressing  them. There is no man in this  province amongst..the. labor leaders  who has dono so much for the  toilers and received so little pay  for it as-.lohn Houston..^ The labor,  lenders, unless they wish to earn  tlie reputation of forgetting friends  and being most ungrateful for past  favors, should muzzle those of their  followers who are easting insinuations upon a man because he dares  to exercise his right as a citizen and  happens to differ with them in his  political views.  Not Popular in Yukon.  11.  G.   Dnggan  of   Victoria  has  arrived home from Dawson, but he  left prior to the elections.

The creek  miners   were   for   tlioih  in overwhelming'majorities.; "Mr. Duggan;  says no one who has been connected  with    the   administration  in   the  Yukon could be elected to anything.  The   government   has   been   very  obnoxious to all classes except those  seeking special favors.   The enmity  of tho laboriug classes particularly  has been aroused on account of the  fact that -judge Dugas' rulings have  left no recourse to them for their  wages when working for a lay man.  He has held that the  claim-owner  gets his share of the gold taken out  of the claim free from any lien of  the wage worker.'    A case in point  was that of judge'Dugas' own-son.  He toofca lay on a claim belonging  to his father, the judge.     He lived  in great style.   "'Champagne flowed  freely, and women- of questionable,  reputation made the claim a frequent   resort.     At   the   clean-up  there was 17 cents on the dollar for  laborers,   while   judge1 Dugas  got  his half of the gross output free of  all expense.    The case was taken  into   court   and   tried  before the  claim-owner, who gave himself the  ruling.    There are 0000 laborers on  the Klondike creeks, and 1500 of  them did not get all their pay on  account,of   the rulings   of  judge  Dugas.

The one industry on whicli 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, wo advocate that the duties on lead  andjeadlproducts be increased, so that they shallbe 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 the establishment of a mint, so that the specie in circulation shall 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 has not now the representation in the federal parliament that she is entitled to: therefore wp advocate that when the  redistribution of seats is made that this constituency shall be given representation according to its population.  Tliat it augurs well for the success of the party that Hugh .Tolm  Macdonald has decided to leave the field of provincial politics to take  parr;, in the larger one that affects the people of the whole of Canada.

VANDERBILTS IN CONTROL  Of the Southern Pacific.  iVew York, October 2S.���The  VaiKlerbilts have obtained control  oi* the Southern Pacific system.  Negotiations aiming at this accomplishment were begun two years  ago, but were summarily disposed  .of by C. P. 'Huntington. The property was his, he said, and owning  it ho proposed to keep it. He  wanted no alliances which could  only in extent make him dependent  upon others for what he himself  stood responsible.'....This important  d<'al to which New York, London  and Berlin houses had committed  themselves was disposed of.  Tho death of Mr. Huntington  brought about a complete change  in the situation. The personal  equation disappeared. A German  syndicate bidding for a large block  of the stock in September was hot  without encouragement that its bid  would be accepted ; for 100,000  shares en bloc at an average of $42  per share. For reasons which on a  business ' basis were considered  satisfactory both here and at London, however, the bid for this 100,-  000 shares was rejected.  During the past week "Wall  street has been excited over the  discovery that Huntington's Pacific  Mail had passed to B. H. Harriman  and associates, including James J.  Hill and W. K. Vanderbilt. Explanations giveu much currency  have aimed to represent that only  Mr. Harriman had become controller;- that Mr. Hill's interests .and  Mr. "Vanderbilt's interests were relatively insignificant.  ^"However this may be, it is certain that in the Southern Pacific  * dcah (whereby- A^ahderbilt -interests  will control) the cooperation of  the Pacific Mail Steamship Company can be of vast interest. Aside  from tlie y��Qdei'Dilt' ambition, to  establish and maintain a transportation line from the Atlantic coast  to San Francisco and thence to the  far ��� east (made practical by the  New York Central, Pacific ' Mail,  UnionPacifieand the Northwestern)  made this accomplishment greater  than any consolidation heretofore  forecasted. ,  ft is believed by practical railroad  managers that with the Southern  Pacific system under, a direct Vanderbilt   control   there will   be   at  ' once a complete disposition of those  elements which have hitherto been  interfering with far western and  southwestern traffic rates. Vanderbilt control of the Southern Pacific, declared one in authority''yes-  -tertlayrwili-produce'actnal^revblii1?1  tion in southwestern railroad business. We will have fair dealing.  Secret rate cutting will stop. Iri-  ���' stead of deception, secret cuts, disturbances, losses and reprisals we  can have profits. In American railroad financiering nothing during  the past 20 years has been of so  jnij'-'h consequence as the possibility that William K. Vanderbilt  takes oyer the Southern Pacific and  puts it upon a level with the Union  Pacific, Chicago- <fc Northwestern  and the New York Central. Acquiring control of tho great Southern Pacific system (approximately  8000 miles) is an accomplishment  which makes relatively Insignificant  the recent acquirement by the  New York Central of the Boston <fc  Albany property.  Conspiracy of Catiline.  Victoria Times.  As Liberals, it is impossible for  us to overlook the fact that prior  to the last session of the legislature  a conspiracy, was on foot to run  provincial politics on party lines.  Certain Conservatives,figuring upon  a putative majority in the local  house, demanded a strictly Conservative cabinet, and in this demand they were tacitly seconded���  if not actively -prompted���by  Messrs. Eberts and McBrido.

As in  the case of Catiline, their conspiracy having been disclosed, it deserves tho punishment which  follows non-success, and when the  Liberals have been triumphantly,  returned to power throughout the  Dominion on the 7th of November,  the first demand of the party locally  will be that Messrs. Eberts and  McBride bo replaced by men in  whose political integrity all parties  of the province, have confidence.  With such gentlemen in the house  as Messrs. Helmcken, Martin, Curtis  and others to choose from, the premier can form a strong cabinet aud  a strong party.

It is much to be regretted that  such an exteusive constituency as  Yale-Cariboo should be restricted  to only one ''member for Dominion  representation, but tlio expansion  of the. present and tlie creation of  new cities and'tdwns with the consequent increase of population will  soon --emedy>|;his - defect. The  whole district is entirely dependent  upon ���'the mining population. Without tliese workers the engineers,  brokers, superintendents, managers  and others who occupy superior positions would find their occupation  gone, and as a consequence our progressive and thriving cities and  towns would speedily lose their  prestige and become a thing of the  pas.t. Where then would be the  merchants and traders who have to  depend upon the presence of the  workers for the continuance of this  prosperity? A largo majority of  them have migrated, from eastern  districts, knowing that they could  command'higher prices- and obtain  a larger connection simply owing  to the fact that the workers in  British Columbia have a 'much  higher rate . of wage and enjoy  many more privileges than -cheir  brethren in the east.  Business men then especially, if  only for the selfish motive of assisting themselves,'ought to co-operate  with their principal clients and  endeavor to advance their interests  by voting for the Labor candidate.  The fact of our one candidate  being admitted to the Dominion  house will not cause the disintegration or impair the usefulness of  either of the great political parties,  It simply means that the vast  majority of electors will have the  satisfaction " of having. their own  representative; tp~ champion their  cause in the legislative hall.  All previous. jLabor representatives have been compelled to consider the various questions that  arise and to vote,with one or other  of the parties for the introduction  of measures they may consider to  be conducive to the country's good,  and so it will be when our present  candidate takes up bis future position. The working men, therefore,  have a natural'claim upon the merchants and traders of the entire  district and venture to hope that  when polling day arrives they will  not be found.Ranting.
