'_ '■ V:
Mills of the Eastern  Portion   Have Been Remarkably
Busy the Past Season.
Within a few weeks the lumbering firms of the Kootenays will be
i 1 the midst of the season of 1901,
l.iie present, season having closed so
i'.ir as active business is concerned.
Tlie mills are operatiug on their
stock of timber cut last winter and
the rush of, business is over until
next spring's demand commences.
Generally speaking it may be stated
that business has been livelier all
over tho country than last year. In
"West Kootenay the demand was
hardly up to tho record of the previous season, but in East Kootenay
tlie mills did a considerably larger
trade than in any former year, thus
bringing up the_ aggregate output
to a high standard.
'The Nelson Saw <fe Planing Mills,
..united, have imported a Jarge'
iimouiit of.timber from Bonner's
Kerry and have also cut logs on
Corn creek in the Goat River district. J. A. Say ward fc Co. have
taken about half their raw material
from Idaho and tho balance was
<_.it in the Goat River country. P.
Genetic & Co., now affiliated with
the Yale-Columbia Lumber Co.,
operated mills at Robson and
Nakusp, securing their logs from
tho Genelle timber limits ou the
Columbia river and from dominion
lands as well.
In East Kootenay the industry
lias been better than ever before.
The biggest output was turned out
from the Cranbrook Lumber Company's ' mills" at Cranbrook and
Palmer's Bar, the latter . mill hav-
ingVi contract for'"75,000"""ti'es'for
the'Lethbridge narrow gauge road.
Ilobinson & Mackenzie's mill at
Cranbrook was also run to its full
capacity, while Leask  & Slater of
Cranbrook ran for a considerable
portion of the season on lumber for
the four miles of flume to the St.
Eugene Consolidated mill at Moyie.
At Fernie the Fernie Lumber Company had a splendid season. The
great boom in East Kootenay resulted from the unprecedented demand for lumber in the Northwest
Territories. It is estimated that
not . less than three million feet
were exported across the divide
during the season to be used by the
settlers and in railroad work.
The construction of the Crow's
Nest road give3 easy access to the
Territories, where no timber grows,
from the Kootenays, and has materially stimulated the lumber business.
During the year tho demand for
timber limits has been active. In
the-Trout-Lake district 5000 acres
have been taken up, through the
Nelson government office; ;,In Lardo
west at'the head of Kootenay lake
fully 4000 acres have been reserved
and on Elk river in East Kootenay
the timber limits taken up during
the year aggregate 7000 acres. All
the big firms' operating in the
country now have considerable
timber reserved for use when the
supply from Idaho, now utilized-
wherever transportation by water
can be had, is depleted. In addition
to these mentioned other areas have
been taken up here and there"
throughout the Kootenays.
Within a month logging will be
under way and an unusually large
cut is looked for because of the expectation that the demand for export lumber will be„quite as' large
as dtfring the season-just closing:
and also that considerably more
building will- be done in West
Kootenay than has been the case
this year.    »
plained his aims and emphasized
the indespensible necessity of a
strong and united government in
order to carry out the domestic
policy whieh the country demands
and requires.

men all over the United States, once
a backer of John L. Sullivan, was
arrested tonight on a charge of uttering forged paper knowing it to

London, October 24.—Lord Roberts has sent the following dispatch
to the war office: "Pretoria, October 21.—Referring to your telegram
of October 9th, no orders have been
placed by colonel Girouard in America. I believe Weiner, Beit ifc'Co.,

M. S. Logan of Rossland spent
yesterday at the Juno mine with
Charles Parker, the company's engineer. The latter, in referring to
the property, says: "The Juno is

Announced His Policy.
Berlin, October 24.—Count von
Buelow, the new imperial chancellor, while presiding yesterday at
the ministry of state, made a
lengthy speech   in   which   he   ex-
Esroer Wallace, alias J. A. Skeets,
was committed for trial yesterday
on the charge.of theft from the Dominion Express Company. A. M.
Johnson appeared for the company
and the defendant was represented
by P. E. Wilson. The case has an
unusual feature, inasmuch as an instance is given of how circumstances will sometimes allow a man
wanted by the police to be within
easy reach for a considerable period
and escape detection.
Wallace was in charge as relieving agent of Crow's Nest station on
the Crow's Nest railroad
from June the 8tli   to ther22nd.
During that time three C. O. D.
parcels were sent to his agency and
two others for $12.75 and $41.30,
the last two being from J. Dover's
establishment in Nelson. A money
order for $15.20 was also sold at
the office. No return was ever
made of the respective transactions
and the company allege that Wallace appropriated the funds. On
July 1st or 2nd the traveling auditor, G. W. Lawson, detected the
discrepancy and :his report to the
head office lead- to an information
against Wallace'who had not been
seen since June 22nd. It seems,
however, that lie went to various
points and finally came to Nelson
securing a position at the C. P. R.
depot. His shift was during the
night when no trains arrive or depart and tho public is rarely or
ever about, lie passed under the
name of J. A. Skeets and did his
work so well that when it became
necessary to send a relieving
agent to Slocan Junction, he
was chosen for the position. This
proved to be Skeets' undoing, it
was part of his duties to meet passing trains at the; junction with running orders, and the express agent
on the first train going, through recognized him as Wallace, the
alleged defaulter. The police were
notified, and a constable went to
Sloean Junction, found his man and
executed' the warrant. < AVallace
pleaded not guilty on being arraigned, and will probably take,a
speedy trial at an early date.
An Additional Week.

• Grand Forks," .October 24.—A
private dispatch received here today conveyed the intelligence that
the" • Dominiop, „ government ' will
shortly, announce-ine • disallowance
of an act passed by'the British Columbia legislature at' its last session
incorporating the Grand Forks &
Kettle River Railroad Company.
This would be following the precedent establishedjiearly ten years
ago when" the federal authorities
vetoed a measure of the Manitoba
legislature authorizing the extension of the Northern Pacific railroad into Manitoba...
The ground taken by the Dominion government! iu declaring tlie
Manitoba r--legislation . unconstitutional was that' the British North
America Act, an imperial measure
creating' the Dominion confederation," expressly reserved to the fed-
eral'parliament tlie right to incorporate railways "connecting~ with
extra territorial.railways. Provincial parliaments, however, are
authorized,to grant charters for
railways .which.shall hot cross railways chartered'" by the Dominion
parliament, and .which shall not
connect with foreign railways. The
veto power on-provincial legislation
is conferred-diifithe federal authorities by virtue .of the British North
America Act. ■   '"'
The Grand Forks and Kettle
River Railroad .Company purposed
to connect at' the international
boundary with an American railway projected^).run north from
Republic, -■;Washington. - ■' Its pro-,
ton and T. P. Coffee of Toronto.
In McKay vs. Phillips.
When the court resumed. yesterday morning the list of civil actions
set down for trial was commenced.
The first suit was- that of McKay
vs. Phillips in which a number of
points of unusual interest arose.
W. A. Macdonald appeared for
plaintiff and R. W. "Hannington
conducted the defence. The plaintiff's case was concluded last night,
and the defence.will submit its testimony this morning.
- The story of the case is that at
an early hour on the morning  of
August 20th, 1S99, Steve McKay
and Arthur Phillips, plaintiff and
defendant respectively, started out
to locate the same piece of gi'ound
on the St. Marys river. A previous
claim staked on the same ground
had expired at midnight, of which
fact both men were aware. McKay
staked the Northern Light claim
and Phillips located the Surprise.
The actionfesolves into a question
as to which man can prove the
priority of his location. The ground
is regarded - as a very promising
prospect- and. sufficient work has
been done to crown grant it.
When the evidence for the plaintiff was taken Mr. Hannington applied for a non-suit on a long list of
reasons'. His objections wero that
no proof had been submitted to
substantiate the following essentials:
First, that the Northern Light
claim was situated on waste lands
of the crown.
Second, that legal posts had been
erected to mark the boundaries of
the claim.
Third, that the location line followed the lead of mineral as nearly
as practicable, as laid down in the
Mineral Act.
Fourth, that the location line
had been blazed in such a. manner,
as to be distinctly seen.
Fifth, that a location affidavit
had ever been filed with the mining
recorder for the district.
Sixth, that the mining recorder
had been furnished with the particulars placed on the location
Seventh, that the ground mentioned in the records is tho same
ground as that plaintiff located.
Eighth, that the ground plaintiff
claims is the same as defendant
Ninth, that the ground had even
been measured.
Tenth,that an adverie survey
was made and signed by a provincial land surveyor.
Eleventh, that the plaintiff's
claim was in the Fort Steele division', where it was recorded.
His honor remarked that some of
these objections were brought to
his attention for the flrsttime during his experience on the bench.
He held with Mr. Hannington on a
number of points and granted the
plaintiff leave to reopen the case
and prove the various points.
" Yukon Elections.
Victoria, October 24.—Dispatches brought froni Dawson by
the Danube dated October 17th,
give particulars of the elections for
seats in the Yukon council. The
tight was a closely contested one.
T. W. O'Brien and A. Noel represented upholders of the administration and Arthur Wilson and Alex.
Prudhomme the reform party. At
9 p. m. on the date of election, when
the dispatch' was sent, the reformers believed they had succeeded in
returning . both . candidates. • The
election of Wilson is conceded, but
there being still twenty polling
places to hear from, O'Brien might
make a/close race with Prudhomme,
with chances iu favor of the latter.
The total votes of the entire' territory less the twenty polling places
referred to, were Arthur Wilson
490, Alex. Prudhomme 401, Thomas
W. O'Brien 359, Auguste Noel 254.
American Interests to Be Advanced in
Korea—Why Japan Will Keep
Her Army in China.
; "Victoria; B. C/Oc1;bber' 24.—The
steamer Kinshumars, arriving this
afternoon, has advices that late
engagements resulting in the occupation of Petang and Lu Tai forts and
other actions have been made independently and show that the alliance of nations lias dissolved.
Russia, Germany and France alone
attacked Petang and Lu Tai, giving no notice, but simply communicating the result to the commanders of the other powers.
Advices from Chemulpo say Mr.
Sands, American adviser to the
Korean court, and Messrs. Bostwick
and Collbran have induced a number of pro-American ministers to
assist them in an advancement of
American interests. Conferences
were~held~with~thc emperor regard"
ing borrowing a five million loan
from America on security of customs
revenue, but there was a hitch and
the scheme seemed to be unsuccessful.
R. M. Collins, war correspondent
at Hong Kong from Pekiu, had his
loot and arms confiscated.
The Pekin correspondent of the
Kobe Chronicle says the object of
Japan keeping the 5th nrmy division
in China was because of the failure
of Russia to abide by tho proposal
to withdraw from Pekin. He praises
the stand taken . by the United
States and says no one can accuse
her of self glory or gain. In taking
the punishment of rebels into their
own hands, the powers destroy any
semblance of authority remaining
in the Chinese government. Kven
if the emperor withdraws from tho
influence of the empress dowager
he would fall an easy prey to the
stronger minds. Tlie correspondent
fears that the powers, viewing each
other with suspicion, will, be unable
to agree on so difficult a matter.

- Berlin, October 24.—Discussing
the present stage of the relations
between the Chinese government
and the powers, a high official of
the German foreign office made the
following statement today: "Before Li Hung Chang can be accepted
as negotiator by the powers his
credentials must of course be examined. So far earl Li on various occasions has refused to exhihit
them. When Dr. Mumm von
Schwartzenstein was in Shang-Hai
he requested earl Li to show them.
Tiie Chinese . statesman replied
evasively. However, Germany will
not raise difficulties. If earl Li's
credentials will suffice for the
"United States they will for Germany. Furthermore, all tho legations must jointly agree upon the
precise wording of the demands to
be addressed to-the Chinese government as a preliminary to actual
peace negotiations.
"These demands will be framed in
accordance with the German and
first French circular notes. It is
another question whether earl Li
will have power to enforce these
conditions in case they are agreed
to. All the powers earnestly desire
to show all possible advances making toward the conclusion of peace."
Must Be a Free Trade Country.
London, October 24.—The chancellor of the exchequer, sir Michael
Hicks-Beach, in the course of'an address before the Liverpool Chamber
of Commerce yesterday advocated
closer commercial union between
the different countries and the empire and greater organization for
the empire's common interests.
He said, with regard to the former,
that it was impossible for Great
Britain to be other than a free
trade country and that he sympathized with sir Wilfrid Laurier, the
Dominion premier, in his opinion
that an imperial zolvereign was unattainable without free trade with
the empire. So far as imperial organization is concerned, he said he

MacDonald, a prospector, was run  over by an engine that was being  shunted iu the G. P. B. yards at a  late hour last night and both feet  were so badly mashed that they  were amputated this morning below  the knees. MacDonald is very deaf  from injuries sustained from being  thrown from a hoist two years  since, and on this accouut lie did  not hear the engine wheu it approached him. MacDonald has resided hero since 1S05 and owns several prospects on Sophie mountain.  He was resting easy late this: evening, and the physicians think that  he will pull through, as he has a  splendid constitution.  Unfortunate Mistake.

The" average  elector is prone to regard his own  views upon public questions as the  only tenable views; and the average aspirant for political honors is  so fearful of losing the vote of the  before mentioned elector that he  does-not hesitate at pledging anything. Few of these pledges are  carried out; and it is probably just  as well that the political road-  agents who exact pledges from candidates are in this manner circumvented. It is just possible that preelection pledges are given in view  of their effect upon the voting. It  does not follow that ���public policy  demands compliance with the political exigencies of the politicians  on the stump.  The.men   who are   behind  the  Independent Labor movement probably do not realize the magnitude  of the- task which they have set  their fellows.    In  creating an Independent Labor party theypre-  sumably cut loose from the two old  time-parties.    They have therefore  to build up a party which at least  must maintain the balance of power  between the two great parties of  the Dominion.     As  there are but  two or three straight Labor mem-  ,'bers in the house of commons, this  means that the newly-born Labor  party must strive for  recognition,  as an independent party, iu a body  It must be refreshing to the Labor  party to be informed that Chris  Foley will poll more votes in ,the-  Slbcanthan the combined opposition candidates. That party, however, is blind to the fact that every  "horny-handed son of toil" is not  necessarily a "labor man." There  are hundreds of them who arc good  old honest Conservatives, and who  are going to vote for Arthur MaeNeill.    The Liberal-Conservative party  will be restored- to power next  month,- not on account of any  c'apriciousness on the part of) the  electors   of   Canada,   but because  ���they know that thepolicy of- that  party in the past is the true reason' j  of   the   splendid    progress   made  -within-the-last-twenty-yearsin-this  Canada of ours ; and further, they  realise that disorganization on the  one hand and false promises on the  other were alone the causes' that  led to the election of the Liberal  party in 1S90.  The electors of the Pacific slope  will do well to  bear in mind'that  what we need at Ottawa is a government that will give ear to our  wants.    We require an administration that will show no parsimony  in voting sufficient funds for public  works that come within the federal  works   department;   we want no  flippant opposition to railway development, nor  oily smoothness of  argument against lake   and  river  improvements; and locally we want  that postolllce which Mr.  Galliher  brought    back    with    him    from  Ottawa���on paper���last year. Four  years have given  the electors   of  Tale-Cariboo     unmistakable    evidence that they can hope for very  little fronrthe present administra^-  tion; it takes the sagacity and foresight of the Conservative party to,  grasp the necessities incidental to a  new and undeveloped constituency  such as the one of whichwe form a  park1 _____________     ���-'  !

Wholesale and Retail  The  was  In a letter to the Rochdale Ob-  R-rver''- trooper Harvey Rigg, a  lsiember of the Duke of Lancaster's  Own Yeomanry, thus describes an  incident which occurred during the  iiilvance of sir Charles Warren's  v. '11111111 through Griqualaud West.  A Dutch girl, about 20 years old,  was leaving her house a. short-dis--  i a nee 'from -where a picket was  posted. In a pitch dark night,  amid the rain and. thunder and  lightning, the sentry could just discern some human form. Irarae-  tliately.he challenged, "Halt! Who  goes' there?" . But the girl was  scared and ran away. Twice after  in quick succession came the challenge, but tlie girl ran on.  only result that could follow  for the sentry to level his rifle and  fire. He did so, and most unfortunately brought down his victim.  The poor girl fell to his bullet,  being shot through the abdomen.  Of. course, the darkness of the  night and the awful weather contributed greatly to the accident,  because if the sentry could have  >">uen that it was a woman I don't  f.hink he would.have fired.  This happened on Saturday, the  night we arrived, and on. the Monday afternoon sir Charley Warren  ordered all troops to attend her  funeral. It was a most impressive  wight to see. hundreds of soldiers,  with heads bent.and arms reversed,  ..howing their- sorrow.for the victim of this most unfortunate accident. Sir Charles Warren, avIio  was accompanied by the- whole-of  his staff, expressed his sorrow to  tlie bereaved parents at the graveside���the grave was dug in the  grounds attached to tho farmhouse  ���and hardly a man- in the whole-  ii'ssopj'bly but what was touched- to  tl.c><piickr    ���     --*- -   -  The Fight in Canada,  New York Tribune.  The Canadian-contest this year is  a straight party fight between the  Liberals and the Conservatives, between the Ins and the Outs. There  are no issues of race or religion.  There are no party schisms. Louis  Itiel's rebellion, the Manitoba  schools and all such -matters are  shelved. It is a contest between  the Liberals, who are^in power and  who are led in entire harmony by.  men so widely differing- in repre--  sentative capacity as. sir Wilfrid  Laurier, sir Richard Cartwriglit  ,'ind Mr, J. Israel Tarte, and the-  Conservatives'who are out of power  for the first time in many years  and are led by such aggressive  loaders as sir Charles and sir Hib-  bert Tupper, father and   son,   and  -tliat-promising���son���of���a- famous-  father,   Mr. "Hugh. J. 'Macdonald.  :.. With such leaders, and with followers worthy of them, as lively a  three weeks' carapaignis to be expected as any outside of Donny-  biook could reasonably wish.  We have said it is a straight party  fight. But the principles are mixed  in a way that might well cause  Macdonald and Mackenzie to turn  in their graves. The Liberals are  traditional Fre Traders. Vet they  have ipaintained a stiff protective  tariff against all the world save the  Mother country, to which they have  been granting that most hateful of  all things to the true Cobdenite, a  preferential tariff. They are traditionally anti-imperialist. Yet, despite the obstreperous objections of  Mr. Tarte, they have been sending  khaki-clad legions to Soutli Africa  and vaunting themselves upon their  loyalty to the empire. On the other  hand, the Conservatives, who have  hitherto been loyalists and iniper-  ialists^to the centre of the spinal  marrow,, are now carping at the  ���Liberal policy because it so closely  identifies the dominion with, the  affairs and interests of the United  Kingdom! It is right about face  on both sides.  The result seems likely to be close.  .Canada is probably naturally. Conservative. The Conservativeftliave  won live of the seven general elections in the history of the Domin-.  ion. We may therefore scarcely  expect the Liberal majority of four  years ago to be repeated, and it  may be entirely wiped out. Yet  the Liberals are good fighters, and  they have the enormous advantage  of patronage with which to aid  their cause, such patronage as  neither the United Kingdom nor  Capital Authorized  Capital Paid up  Rest  $2,600,000  $2,468,603  $1,700,000  D.

LAY, Manager.  the United States knows.* In Great  Britain patronage amounts to little  or nothing in elections. In the  United States it is far less influential than is commonly supposed.  But in "Canada, with pra.otically the  whole railroad system of the country as a political machine, it is a  vital and potent reality. We may  therefore look for a vigorous fight  by the Liberals for a renewal of  their lease of power, and we may  confidently expect that, whichever  party wins, the attitude of the  Dominion towards the United States  will remain practically unchanged.  The Ohio to Beat All.  The Union Iron Works of San  Francisco, keeps to the fore. The  eastern papers are making a great  ado over the exploits of the new  battleship "Wisconsin," turned out  a few days ago from the Union  yards. The contract required that  she should develop a speed of sixteen kuots an hour, whereas in this  trial, in comparatively rough water,  she made a maximum of 18.54 knots  and nn average, for the whole run  of 17.25 knots, This beats even,the  "Oregon," and leaves all the eastern  battleships in the lurch. The remark of the Mail and Express is  that "the construction of these two  magnificeut vessels by a single firm,  each surpassing all standards for  craft of their type,. is one of the  most brilliant achievements in  the annals.. of American  shipbuilding." By the way, the  "Ohio" is nearing completion at the  sameshipyards, and-wo' think by  the preparations being made the  "Ohio" is going to surpass all the  achievements .of the "Wisconsin"  and* the-'-'Oregon;'- and, going, to., be  the most formidable and swiftest  battleship that ever went to sea.  Suspect Li Hung Chang.  Paris, October 21.���There is considerable mystery about the health  of the French minister at Pekin, M.  Pichon. The- French government  has. received- through the Chinese  minister, here a cable message.from.  Li Hung Chang, saying that M.  Pichon is sick, and suggesting that  the French government appoint  another     plenipotentiary. The  French, minister of. foreign affairs,  M. Delcasso,. having received the  same day a dispatch from M.  Pichon which did not refer to his  health, it is thought that Li Hung  Chang's suggestion.is open to suspicion, and he cabled to M. Pichon  on the subject.' The latter's reply  has not yet been received.  tn  DEPENDS ON HOW YOU BUY  Wholesale and Retail  ft  QUB  STOGK  OP  GOODS  BOUGHT  THIS  NO  EQUAL  IN B. C.

An Indian rider brought  the news today that fifty Indian  families are dying, and that itr is  doubtful if supplies can be sent to  them quickly enough; to save their  lives. They have caught no salmon  this season, their potato crop has  failed and their stock has been  drowned by the floods. Recent  heavy rains have caused the Harrison river to overflow its banks,  and the whole country is said to be  flooded. Conditions are said to be  worse now than during the disastrous floods of 1894, when the district was under six feet of water.  Supplies are being rushed from  Vancouver to the starving Indians.  Strike Continues.  London,   October   24.���The employers of the striking  lightermen  today   declined   the   men's  conditional offer to resume work.     The:  strike, therefore, continues.

Hocking, who are to serve sen-  teneesin the provincial penitentiary.  The members of the BaptisL  church having received an invitation to attend tlie sessions of the  Presbyterian Sunday school convention, there will be no prayer  meeting in the Baptist church this  morning.  The steamer Marion came into  port yesterday several hours ahead  of time having been unable to cross  the lake from Balfour to Pilot Bay  because of the heavy sea and wind.  The storm is said to have been the  worst of the year.  Alex Stewart, who for the past  two years carried on an insurance  and real estate business in Nelson,  left for Toronto this morning,  where he will engage in a general  brokerage business. Mr. Stewart  will be remembered in Nelson as  one of the greatest real estate rustlers that the city has known,  Jacob DoA'er yesterday received  a new consignment of manicure sets  and chatelaine bags. This completes the $GO,000 stock which_ he  has secured for the approaching  holiday trade. All the goods are  purchased by Mr. Dover personally  from the manufacturers and he says  that as a result he can sell 25 per  cent cheaper than his competitors  and then make 50 per cent.  A. H. MaeNeill, the Conservative  candidate, and mayor Goodeve of  Rossland will address a meeting in  the opera house on Friday evening.  The chief object of the meeting is  to afford candidate MaeNeill an  opportunity for becoming acquainted with the electors of Nelson, and secretary Starkey says  that the number whom the candidate will have to address will tax  the seating capacity of the largest  auditorium in the city.  The Methodist church officials  who took up theofl'eringon Thanksgiving day for the general hospital  fund were surprised to find among  the coins in tho plates an English  penny. Tlie coin was kept until  yesterday-when it was claimed by  -aJady^who-said=it=wa.S--=a=-S-aluecL  pocket piece and had been placed  on the plate in mistake for a four-  bit piece. She handed in the fifty  cents and secured the copper coin  in returned.  The funeral of tlie late Mrs. John  Scoley took place yesterday afternoon to St. Saviour's church, thence  to the Union cemetery. Rev. IT. S,  Akehurst conducted services at the  church, which was filled with sorrowing friends. The Oddfellows  and Sons of England, of which the  bereaved husband is a well known  member, were represented by large  delegations. The pall bearers were  A. H. Clements, E. C. Traves, Fred  Irvine, W. Glover, P. .1. Squire and.  John Watson.  Bishop Dontenwill of Victoria  who accompanies mgr. Falconio on  his visit to Nelson, has just returned from a visit to Rome. At  the time of bishop Dontenwill's arrival in the holy city, the great jubilee pilgrimages were under way  and over 200 bishops were in the  city. After waiting several weeks  he obtained an audience with the  pope and took occasion to present  his holiness with the souvenir  spoon sent from Nelson. The gift  was graciously received and examined with interest.  ciation of this fact H. Allenberg,  manager of the company has presented Mr. -Ellis with a handsome  gold watch. Vice-president G. A.  Tarbell also forwarded him a fine  leather wallet as a further evidence  of the esteem in: which he is held at  the head office.  Services Appreciated.  W. E. Ellis, general agent of east-"  ern British Columbia of the Equitable Life Assurance Society of the  United States with headquarters at  Nelson, has made a record for hi in-  self. During the first nine months  of the present year he has written  more business than any other agent  representing the Equitable Life in  the'province.   As a mark of appro;  Attended Paria Exposition..  James Connacher arrived in the  city last night after a pleasant trip  to England and the continent.  When iu France Mr. Connacher  naturally took in the exposition,  which was then, "during August,  drawing to the close. He spent  some time in the Canadian exhibit,  which he describes as very comprehensive and well arranged, though,  in his opinion, the building suffered  somewhat in comparison with the  structures erected by. other countries. As to the exposition generally, Mr. Connacher says he found  more pleasure in visiting the historical spots about Paris- than wax-  to be had within the exhibition  grounds.   WILL ATTACH THE PROPERTY  Commence Proceedings Today.  Ernest Mansfield promises to fire  the first gun in' the legal battle  arising out of his arrest and imprisonment in the provincial jail  today by instructing his Nelson  solicitors, Taylor <fc Haunington, to  file liens against the Camp Mansfield properties to insure the recovery of $14,000, the -sum Mr. Mansfield states is due him for advances  to cover wages and supplies during  this and last year. Only a four-  fifth interest in the claims will bo  filed on, the.balanc'e being the personal property of Mr. Mansfield, as  hih commission for putting through  the deals by which the syndicate  became interested in the district.  It is extremely probable that Mansfield will sever his connection with  the present syndicate because of  the trouble that has arisen. It is  understood that as engineer for  this outfit he drew the comfortable  stipend of ��1000 per annum, travelling and general, expenses over  actual cost of living, a quarter interest in all properties taken up,  and a month's vacation annually,  with ��100 for traveling expenses  during the holiday. The agree-  riient setting .forth the above  conditions is ' now in the  hands of Taylor & Hannington. ' Within;the.p_ist few clays tho  syndicate formed the Mansfield  Gold Mines of 13. C. Limited Company, with a capitalization of a  million dollars and a working capital of $200,000. TJiis company is to  work several properties in Camp  Mansfield. As to'- his threatened  action for damages!'Mansfield states  that he will go into the matter on  his arrival in England, whence he  sails from New York per tlie steamer  Campania a fortnight hence. His  present intention is to sue for  ��10,000, aud it would seem as'  though he had an ������ excellent prima  facie case for damages. " .." _  In connection with the arrest of  Mr. Mansfield at the instance.of his  miners, it may be said that an interesting object lesson has been  taught. Few representatives of  foreign syndicates will care to incur financial obligations in future  =withoutrhs.ving=ithe^cash=actually-  in hand when delay in remitting  may land them in the unpleasant  predicament from 'which Mansfield  has just emerged. !
