NELSON:  TUESDAY MORNING NOVEMBER 6  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  JX-IANAGERBABRED OFF PROPERTY  J. Mallinson Williams Must Not Enter  Chapleau Mine  Until Pending Action is Settled.  DIRECTORS TURN THE TABLES BY SECURING INJUNCTION  The matters at issue between the  (" i-'pleau Mining Company and J.  Mtllinson Williams came to a head  \ csterday when Mr. Justice Wal-  k'-m granted an injunction restraining Williams from trespassing on  the Chapleau ground or in anyway  interfering with the conduct of the  mine. The story of the events leading.to tho introduction of the matter into court are of considerable  interest in Nelson, where all the  parties are known.  On September 20th last viscount  Phillipe de Grammont and marquis  ���liistin Dusmet., directors of the  Chapleau Mining Company, were  appointed a committee of the directors and authorized in writing to  net  with "all   the   powers   of the  .board.    This fact was cabled to .f.  . M. Williams, who has been man-  .���ijjerof the property since March  hist. The two gentlemen arrived  i<i Nelson on October 5th and left  next day for the mine. The first  friction arose over the stamp mill  lu:ing constructed nt the property.  Prior to their departure from Paris  the directors ha~d been advised by  c.ible that the mill would commence  operations about the end of Sep-  t ember, but on reaching the ground  they found the machinery at the  railway station and scattered along  I he road for a distance of seven or  Vight miles. -They concludad that  t lie work should be hastened, but  Williams disagreed, stating ein-  I ihatically that he was manager - of  i lie company and would erect the  plant'  without   interference- from'  \, t k-jihr or - anyone else.' Then Williams instructed all the men in  ciinp to take no orders from Grammont and Dusmet. The latter exhibited their' written power from  i he board of directors, but refused  t) part with the document  because of the insulting manner iu which Williams addressed them. Further the visiting directors informed Williams  i hat while they had not intended  i.i have any trouble with him  1 hey would not tolerate insult, and  if this was persisted in his services  would be dispensed with. To this  he replied with a letter in which he  *tated his intention of proceeding  to England to appeal to the directors as a whole. Meanwhile the  visiting directors had advised the  board of the condition of affairs,  and a meeting was held in Paris on  October 27th, at which Dusmet and  Grammont were authorized to ap  point and discharge officers and  agents of the company- here at  their discretion, and a cable forwarded to this effect. In October  the visiting directors decided to revoke all Williams' powers, but on  the revocation being delivered to  Williams he sneered at the directors, "who discharged him on the  spot, afterward forwarding the dismissal in writing.  Williams refused to accept the  situation, and on Friday last, when  the marquis de Dusmet and viscount de Grammont went to the  Chapleau mine, James M. Williams,  the ex-manager's brother, refused to  admit them to the cabin they had  previously occupied, and instructed  several men to throw out their baggage, which wa9 promptly done.  James M. Williams was then discharged instanter, but he also ro-  fused to accept his discharge. This  was too much'for the.directors who,  immediately started the machinery  of the law, with the result that J.  Mallinson Williams will not be  permitted to set foot on Chapleau  ground until after trial of the action of Chapleau vs. Williams, and  is also taxed with the costs of the  injunction.  In his affidavit filed .at the court  house yesterday marquis de Dusmet  charges Williams with looseness in  the management of tho company's  funds aud business. Since March  last the company sent out over  $90,000 for developing the mine  and purchasing plant and the secretary has never received any detailed statementofthedisbursement  of this fund although a monthly accounting is required under the  'agreement. -Further than this, no  account was ever opened at the  bank iu the company's name. Wilr  liams had a private account.for the  company's business, but until the  injunction was issued the directors  haTl no means of finding out where  they stood. Their impression is  that the fund has vanished. Williams also applied in his own name  for a mill site near the mine and  has refused up to the present to  turn the same over to the Chapleau  company.  At the court house yesterday the  company was represented by R. S.  Lennie, while H. A. Stewart appeared for Williams. After hearing the facts, Mr. justice Walkem  granted a sweeping injunction referring at the same time in terms  of unmeasured criticism to Williams' conduct to the gentlemen  who had come across the Atlantic  to conduct business in this province.  Are Fulling Straight.  Rossland, November 5.���To the  editor of The Tribune: Referring  to your editorial today, on behalf  of the Rossland Liberals, I desire to  assure you that Galliher has no  more ardent supporters than the  Liberals in this city. The views of  the Rossland Miner are' not shared  by a single Liberal in this community. The Rossland Liberals are  confident of giving Galliher a" good  majority in this city and riding.  II. W. C.

H?:--^  TROUT LAKE TO ARROWHEAD  To Extend the Line.  A party of surveyors under the  command of F. M. Young, assistant  district engineer of the construction department, left Robson last  night for Arrowhead, their mission  being to locate the Lardo railroad  through from Trout Lake to Arrowhead. The line is already located  from Argenta to Trout Lake and  twelve or fourteen miles of grade  were built in 1898, but contrary to  expectation nothing was done this  year as had been promised by president Shaughnessy. Why this  location^ party is being sent into  the Lardo with winter coming on is  known only to the head office staff,  but it will be regarded generally as  an indication that the road is to go  ahead at a much earlier date than  waslooked for. At any rate the  people of Lardo will be delighted  to learn that the C. P. R. is taking  action again. The country is regained as a coming mining section,  but the conditions are such that the  mineral propositions cannot become  largo producers without better  transportation facilities than are  afforded by the trails they now  possess. The Nelson wholesale  merchants also regard the construction of the road as important, because the Lardo is already a large  purchaser and with the development which will naturally follow  better facilities is likely to become  as important customer as any other  ore district supplied from the queen  city of the Kootenays.

St. Pi**ters*~$urg, November 5.���  Prince Khilkolf, Russian minister  of railways authorizes the Associated Press to deny the assertion of  a leading German newspaper that  Russia is planning to construct 'a  a railway from San Markand to  Hankow via the Cashgar valley,  lake Kukunor and the Wei Ho and  Hoang Ho valley or any other  route. He asserts that the intervening mountains are all but impassable and that such a line would  cost a billion dollars, though it possibly may be built a hundred-years  from now.  "Russia," said Prince Khilkoff  "formerly contemplated a line from  San Markand to. LomisKa, but she  gave up the project when the Chinese troubles began. The direct  branch line from St. Petersburg to  the Siberian railroad has also been  abandoned for the" present. The  only line "now in process'- of or  planned is a line-from Orenburg on  the" Ural 'to TasKkut" in" Siberia".  There is not much chance of Americans supplying Russia with railway  material in the future. The Russian shops have a capacity of* 1,000  locomotives annually, whicli exceeds the demand of the country.  They could build 2,000 cars a year,  whereas Russia ordered only 100 for  1901."  Mr. W. R. Holloway, U. S. consul in St. Petersburg, recently received many enquiries regarding an  alleged railway for which America  is to supply the capital. Prince  Khilkolf says that no such road is  contemplated. He thinks it probable that unauthorized .agents are  appearing in the United States.  -  Wrecked Boat Found.

Shot Guns Will Prevent   It.  Vancouver, November 5.���[Special to the Tribune]���At the request of the executive committee of  the - Conservative association here  Donald McMaster the eminent counsel of Montreal has given his opinion oh the .Tapaneso franch ise i n  British Columbia. He says he believes that according to the Canadian statute passed by the Laurier  administration in ' 1898 that all  naturalized Japanese and Chinese have a right to vote in the  forthcoming Dominion oleetion.  His opinion is backed up by E. P.  Davis, Q. C, a prominent Liberal  in British Columbia, and several  other lawyers. It is officially announced that the r department of  justice at Ottawa has decided that  returning officers must act under  the guidance of local counsel in the  matter,   Murdered His Wife;  Portland, Maine, November 5.���  Charles Davis, aged about 30 years,  shot and killed his wife at their  home here at noon today and then  attempted to take his own life. He  ha9.a bullet wound in his head, but  may recover. His wife was about  25 years of age. The story of the  affair as gathered by the police  shows that owing to the quarrelsome disposition of Davis his wife  had refused to live with him. He  called today and the couple almost  immediately became engaged in an  altercation. The shooting occurred  without any warning.  The steamer Angerona is to be  raised and-"towed" to Busk's ranch  where the enginei; will be taken  out and stored in one o* the ranch  buildings. It is ccasidered that the  hull is past repair, and as the craft  was never well suited to tlie passenger or freight* service in inland  waters, the loss is not regarded as  might be the case under other circumstances. The engines are powerful, and in good shape, but the  boiler is in poor condition, and the  hull useless.  The sinking of I the Angerona recalls the stories circulated as to her  record on the' coa^t prior to her purchase   by   Captain   Busk.     There  seems to be no" doubt that the little  rstoamer was one of. the most successful opium! arid Chinemen runners that ever,, plied in the North  Pacific.   A   maiuVwho   claimed to  Jiave   sailed   on' her   during   this  period was around ;the water front  recontly for several, days, and recounted several ..interesting   chapters in the Angerona's lively history.   Tlie   boat',   he   stated,   was  built    specially;.'  for    the   smuggling   trade, * hence'   her     narrow  hull, fast lines, -tow structure" and  engines out of '^proportion to, the  balance of thesteamer.    The bo.it  was never-registered-and never ran  in the daytime.--'Every day  she  could be seen tied'up .hard and fast  in a little bay nbt far from Vancouver, her smokestack^ and npper  works covered with'tarpaulins and  hatches battened down' as though  she   had   never \iuii'. a, day. -since  latinched.--"*-"fWlifcu:';:niglit"'-:feir "the  tarpaulins were stripped off, steam  raised and the steamer made  her  regular trip with opium or celestials  or both.' This continued for several  years and the Angerona escaped detection although there,were narrow  squeaks on various  occasions.     It  was whispered that on one occasion  the Angerona was running fifteen  Chinamen and was sighted by the  revenue cutter doing patrol duty in  the vicinity.   The rumor continued  that the captain of the craft asked  the   orientals   to   get into gunny  sacks   so    that    they   might    be  passed over as cargo and thus avoid  imprisonment for themselves and  "confiscation for   the    craft.     Tho  Chinamen assented, and according  to the yarn the whole outfit was  heaved overboard.    The ex-member  of the crew stated that there was  -not-a-word-of���truthir-in���this-storjv  but there are many whose belief, in  the story will not be shaken by this  denial by an interested party.   He  told, however, ot one occasion when  the Angerona was hard pressed by  a  gunboat and. ran   into shallow  water from where her illicit passengers escaped to shore by wading.  The gunboat thought her quarry  had gone ashore and ordered all  hands away as  a boarding party.  While the naval men"were" rowing  in the Angerona quietly, backed out  and   got    away    at    top .   speed.  On another occasion   the smuggler  was running a valuable consigment  of   opium   and    was     chased .'.. to  a standstill.   Again she ran inshore  and discharged tho chests into   the  sea with weights attached.    At low  tide the crew returned and, recovered the opium   which   was   uninjured being packed in water   tight  cases.  The profits in the business wore  large, one trip alone when a number  of celestials were safely landed in  Uncle Sam's terrirory, riettiug several thousands, of dollars. By tho  time the Angei'Oha became notorious and a fast gun boat was detailed to watch her constantly the  owners had realized a great profit  on their outlay and were content  to go out of the smuggling business. Accordingly she was sold  and brought'in to the Kootenays on  a flat car. The craft's boiler was  then equipped with a safety valve,,  which important adjunct was not  considered essential in the days  when every ounce of steam was often valuable and the crew was willing to take long chances, and the  boat was registered and put incom-  mission.  Sympathy for Kruger.  Paris, November 5.���The municipal council has adopted a motion  expressing warm sympathy and admiration for the Boers "in their  heroic defense of their independence," and resolving that the  president and other officers of the  council shall welcome Mr. Kruger  at the station upon his arrival in  Paris and invite him to an 'official  reception at the Hotel de Ville. The  Nationalist group in the chamber  of deputies today appointed a delegation to meet Mr. Kruger at the  station.

WRITTEN    BY    CONSERVATIVES.  [The Tribune has placed a part of one column  at the disposal ot the Conservatives, whose views  'will bo expresaed'thoroin from time to time during the campaign:   Alike privilege.is accorded  the Labor-part}'and thc'Liberals.'      ** -     J '*  Don't let any wavering elector  imagine that a government by the  Labor party would be spotlessly  pure. Given a government at  Ottawa composed of laboring men  and it would be no better than Sir  Wilfred Lauder's. For a certainty  there would be some one who could  beat Sifton on jobbery, and Tarte  on rascality. No one denies the  possibilities open to any laboring  man ; he can and has risen to the  highest gifts a country has to offer,  and the followers of Chris Foley  may yet have a chance, to buy him  a senatorship when his party gets  into power. Meanwhile the wise  will vote for the Liberal Conservative candidate as representative of  all that is best and lasting in political administration.  ���Theshoepinches-on-that co-operative stoie question. Ifc is pretty  well known that the co-operative  store has" the moral and tangible  support of the Labor party. That  is a question beyond discussion and  it is too late in the day for the west  end committee to attempt to fool  the electors over it; more, it is generally understood that a store on  similar lines will be opened here,  where the workingmen and their  families will receive -'just and courteous treatment.". It may well be  repeated that labor is quite capablo  of taking care of itself even unto  assessing the union members a day's  pay for incidental campaign expenses, . a tutor: for Chris, and a  bonus to the new co-operative store  to be opened in this city���"After  the Ball!"  The Labor party bobs up serenely  this morning over the statement  made in this column that education  in a candidate is a factor to be considered and intelligently acted  upon. The fact that Chris Foley  apologizes for his deficencies on  that score is evidence that he looks  at the matter in that light. The  writer in the Labor column then  flies off at a tangent and says that  "Chris Foley is a man of tho masses  and that every thinking and highly  educated man would consider him  as an equal aud would not disdain  to associate with him." Quito so���  delighted to meet Mr. Foley socially;  but that is no reason why he is  fitted to become a member of parliament and assume responsibilities  that do not always sit lightly on  the' shoulders of men who by reason  of education and experience are  more able to undertake them  than he.  �� New York,   November  5.���The  most   interesting   development   in  New York on tlie eve of battle is  an indictment found by the local  grand jury against chief of police  William S. Devery, on the charge  of interfering   with the work of  state "superintendent   of   elections  John  McCullagh.    Chief   Devery's  bail was fixed at $1000 and arrangements have been made for hearing  the case the day after the election.  The   indictment   has   attracted   a  great deal of attention in political  circles. The points involved appear  to hinge upon the rights  of men  to swear in their votes when challenged by any of the deputies of  tho state superintendent of   elections.     The   legal   aspects of the  case are interesting to the Republican and   Democratic leaders for  the reason that it has been  feared  that a clash might occur at the  polls tomorrow between the 8000  policemen   and   the   800 deputies.  At   all   political    headqurters,   at  tho  office  of the   chief   of   police  and ��it tho   Democratic   club the  consensus of opinion seemed to   be  that the election   would   prove   a  quiet one despite the difference   of  opinion between the chief of police  and the state superintendent unless  the   unexpected happens.   Every'  where confidence is expressed .-that  a full vote will be polled   and   Republicans   and    Democrats    alike  agree that more than'* 000,000 citizens of Greater-New York will  tomorrow deposit their   ballots   for  the men " of -".their, choice.   Indications are thattho"vote in  the   city,  will be at least 55,000   larger' than  ever   before"' in   the   history   of  Greater   New    York.      Generally  speaking Republicans concede that  Bryan will carry Greater New York.  On the other hand Democrats   admit that McKinley will carry the^  state if Greater   New York is ex-  eluded.

Tun Triku.vi: has placed a part of one column  at the-disposal of the Liberals, whose views  will bo expressed therein from time to timo during the campaign. Alifeo privllcgo is accorded  the Labor party and the Conservatives.  In the matter contributed by  Conservatives to the columns of  The Tribune of November 2nd appears a statement to the effect that  the administration of affairs in the  Yukon by the Liberal government  is indefensible to the same extent  as has been the expenditure of  $3000 per annnm on the Duncan  river which has been, says the  writer, thrown into the river under  the pretense of removing snags.  The first appropriation. .of $3000  for the Duncan river was made by  the Conservative party at tho request of Mr. Mara. It was expended under the supervision of Mr.  Gamble, chief engineer forthe province under the Conservative administration. This expenditure  was made in contemplation of further appropriations to follow and  without these would have been  practically wasted.  Three appropriations of $3000  each have since been expended���  $12,000 in all. The result is that  the Duncan river for 40 miles above  Kootenay lake is navigable during  the summer season for all kinds of  steamboats.  Tho Argenta, specially built for  the run with good passenger accommodation and ot 40 tons freight  capacity, has been on the route for  the whole of last summer, landing  prospectors and their freight at  Hall Landing in a few hours from  Kalso.  With loaded boats this trip  formerly meant a week of toil,  accompanied with some risk of fatal  accident. One item of the work  done on the river was the blasting  out of "government rock" at the  mouth of Glacier creek a ledge 100  feet long, which whilo it remained  made the river impassable for any  steamer, except possibly at full  flood.  Prominent Conservatives such as  Jamps   McK. ' Anderson   and .the **  Simpson brothers have been amongr^:  those most ��� actively interested in ?  securing these appropriations, and ~"  the expenditures have been .made- j  with so little regard to party -ad-"-  vantage that tlie remark has often  been   heard   in   Kaslo    that   Mr. i-  Bosto'ck if in the  field  would lose- ���  votes through his failure to-protect -  adequately the interests of his sup-  porters.    .          .    -  .^._  One thing more, this appropria- -'  tion   which   has    been    kept* up  through the whole term of Laurier's   '  administration   has   been   discontinued on this the election year.* Or '*  if the appropriation has been made <-  the Liberals of Kaslo know nothing  of it and no attempt has been made  to use it in any way for the good  of the party.  The subject is worth this much  comment only because the writer of  the insinuation has coupled this  with the Yukon question as a  parallel instance of corrupt maladministration. The contention of  the Liberals is that the charges  against the government in Yukon  matters are as useless and baseless  as arc those made by this writer in  regard to the Duncan river, and  that they have been invented in  the same spirit of malicious ignorance by people who knew nothing  of .what they were talking of.

Rut  now it says The Tribune and its  editor have basely betrayed the  cause of the men who labor for a  day's wage; because the one does  not publish fulsome eulogiums of  the independent Labor party, and  the other does not write 'what:-he  ��� ���-���-,��� .   .-   ..i  does not believe in.

It is only in British Columbia that the matter has any interest, and in British Columbia the  laws of the province do not allow  the names of Asiatics to go upon  the voters' list; and it is even betting they never will.  The Rossland Minor flopped from  Curtis to Mackintosh in the provincial campaign, nnd Curtis was  elected. It has flopped,in the present campaign,- from Galliher to  MaeNeill, and from MaeNeill to  Foley. This is a sure sign that  Foley, will be defeated. The Rossland Miner is as much of a hoodo as ���  its Nelson namesake. ���  -*"VL-'<V  *"3"---��  .poIlT Wine  .flfeuVa/W*.

These  votes were not misplaced, notwithstanding tho cry of "traitor" that  has   recently been  raised  against  the   members    from   Slocan    and  Nelson by men who are not above  suspicion.   Both Mr. Green of Kaslo  and  Mr.   Houston   of   Nelson   are  Conservatives.    Both attended the  Revelstoke   convention.     Tlie  one  nominated and the other seconded  tho nomination   of   the candidate  who is now asking for support from  the Conservative electors of Yale-  Cariboo.      Both   are   giving   that  candid.ite   loyal  support, as they  should.     The Independent 'Labor  .party was not then in existence.  It  had no candidate*in the field.   Because it is now organized and has a  candidate of its own, is no reason  why men who participated in either  the   Conservative or Liberal conventions should turn tail and  become traitors.    The men and newspapers   who   are   now   so loudly  shouting     "traitor"     will      bear  watching.  Like all converts to a new faith,  the Rosslaud Miner is exceedingly  zealous. It is even abusive. Last  year when the mine workers were  lighting for the eight-hour day, the  During the last provincial campaign, the Rossland-Miner started  out as a supporter of Smith Curtis,  the Joe Martin candidate, and  wound up by supporting C.

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 advocalte-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'Cohuubia has not now the representation in the federal parliament that she is entitled to: therefore we advocate that when the  redistribution of seats is made that this constituency shall be given rop-  rosentation according to its poiDulation.

Frederick Sandys, whom some  one has called the greatest of English draughtsmen and Milla'is said  Avas worth any five academicians,  Avas waited upon in his young days  by a deputation from a corporation  Avhich wanted a portrait of an.esti-  -lnablegrocerptheirfimayorr^Wheir  the question of terms was reached,  the spokesman of the party announced that they were willing to  pay the magnificent sum of. two  hundredand fifty dollars. As the  painter's faeelfell, the worthy town  councilor hastily added. that they  only wanted a half length. "Oh, of  course, that makes a difference,"  said the artist, urbanely; "which  half would you prefer, gentlemen?"  Prof esspr Tai t of Edinburgh, after  having subdued a lady pianist who  annoyed him by taking to the bag-  ".pipes, vA'as troiibled by an amateur  elocutionist in the house. One day,  the story goes, when the house was  filled with oratory, a volley of explosions came; from Tait's room, followed by smoke and unearthly  smell. The lessons in.oratory were  suspended, and every one in the  house collected to find out what  the trouble was. Tait, with unmoved' countenance,. said to the  landlord: "As there seems to be  no restraint on the nature of the  studies pursued in these lodgings, I  have begun a series of- experiments  in high explosives, from which I expect to draw much advantage."  The elocution ceased.  Mrs. Mutsu, whose death has recently been announced,-was one of  tho most attractive women who  ever presided at the Japanese legation at Washington, D. 0. Her end,  it is said, was hastened by the sorrow for the death of her husband,  which occurred three years ago. Mr.  and Mrs. Mutsu were a most devoted couple, aud when Mutsu was  stationed at the national capital  they were constantly seen together.  At a puppet-shoAV held some  months ago in one- of the small  towns of Germany, the proprietor,  who did a turn himself, Rave* what  he considered to be the chief characteristics of tho three famous men  who have occupied the exalted position of German emperor���William  the First, Frederick the Third, and  the present kaiser.-William the  Second. "Kaiser William," said the  public entertainer, "will ever be remembered by his saying, 'I have no  time to be weary!' The emperor  Frederick's most characteristic  utterance will undoubtedly be for  all ages : 'Learn to suffer without  complaining!' - And the present  illustrious ruler will ever be inseparably associated Avith his familiar expression : 'Augusta! pack  the trunks !' But the enterprising  'showman's remarks were reckoned  by the law an insult to his imperial  majesty, aud the offending speaker  had .to pay the penalty of two  mouths' imprisonment for his  temerity.          Tn the early days of the Third  Empire, the chief of the Paris  omnibus service, an ardent horseman, appeared on the Bois de  Boulogne driving a mail-coach  drawn by six spanking horses. He  Avas notified that only the emperor  was entitled to indulge . in the  luxury of a six-horse equipage. So  a few days later he astonished the  Parisians by tooling along the Bois  Avith the same co.ich, drawn by four  very small horses aud tAvo large  donkeys. The next day he was  commanded ta appear before the  emperor, who was really fond of  liim. After some general conversation, Napoleon said: "I hear,  Jbaron, that you are infringing court  etiquette by driving through "Paris  first with six horses and then with  four, horses and three donkeys?"  "Only two donkeys, sire," respectfully insinuated the baron, who did  not feel quite comfortable, despite  his habitual audacity and recklessness. "But there Avere three donkeys in the affair,"., insisted Napoleon. "Milie pardons, sire, I fear  5*our majesty has been.tnisinformed.  Four horses and two donkeys."  "But," said the emperor, with a  :jjjuig*"ical smilcy'yoiiJgi,'gej;_thejpne^  on the box!" FronTthat day forth  the baron contented himself with a  more modest equipage.  A Man Without a Friend.  Alfred G. Hales, the famous war  correspondent of the Daily News,  who has returned to London has  in an interview with a representative of that paper given the following impression of lord Kitchener:  "I have seen men," he said "go  into Kitchener's quarters swaggering and laughing and come out  looking like plucked birds." '  "All the fine feathers gone?"  "My word! I've asked more than  once what -happened. 'Well,' came  the answer 'one look is enough for  me.    It made my blood run cold.'"  "And do you think that such a  man is likely to inspire confidence?  Lord Roberts is loved by hisarmy."  "A man might disobey lord Roberts, but Kitchener!���"  "Well, did Kitchener come into  touch with his men?"    ���  '���Yes, and when he did their jaws  fell, I can promise you.

They mind their  business and don't care for anything else. They are soldiers, and  their duty is to fight, and win. If  not, to die. I believe that this war  would have been over months since  if Kitchener had been in command."  "Good heavei.9! 9urely lord Roberts has done splendidly?"  "A magnificent soldier, but 1  think Kitchener would have done  the work quicker."  "How's that?"  "Those brilliant Hanking movements are slow. Kitchener believes  in frontal attacks."  "But what 'slaughter!"  "Well, there woiildu't have been  thousands of deaths from enteric  fever, anyway."   ���.  This is Mr. Hales' view. The war,  in his opinion, teaches  this  lesson.

Now tho sight of our transports crawling, lumbering along  used to make my blood boil. Kitchener would have cut the baggage  down by half. Half of the wagons  laden with officors'luxuries���Tommy  never got any. He did cut them  down when he had the chance.  Mind, these are no hasty conclusions. I was there for nine  months, and I didn't go about with  my eyes shut. He's a fine judge of  men, too. Do you think he'd let  his officers go loafing about cities  and towns?   No fear."

IL. M. Thorburn of Silverton, was  married last night to Miss MeLean  of Fredericton, iV. R., by Tlev. Uob-;  erfc Frew, pastor of St. Paul's Pros;1  byterian church.

During the last few weeks the  buildings erected near the Athabasca road during last winter's  smallpox scare, have been entered  and ransacked by sneak thieves.  Two cots, a table, blankets, stovepipes and crockery were stolen  from the pest house, and six or  eight pairs of blankets from the  detention hospital. It is thought  that Chinamen are responsible for  the theft.  It is proposed to start a branch  of the Theosophical society in Nelson. F. W. Pettitt will communicate with anyone who may be already a member, or otherwise interested. A lecturer will probably be  sent in the near future from San  Francisco, and an effort is being  made to induce Charles Leadbeater  of London, a* great student of occultism, who is now in tlie west, to  come here and give a lecture.  The meeting   of   the   Epworth  League of the Methodist church tonight will be of a specially interesting nature.   The social committee  has charge of the proceedings and  one of the features will be the production   of   the mock   trial from  Dickens'    "Pickwick   Papers,"  the  parts being taken by members of  the league.    Following this will be  the reading of the first edition of  The Parrot, a monthly publication  devoted to chronicling  matters of  interest to members of the league.  =The'officers-of^the=7Nelson���rifle*  company are arranging a reception  for private Alexander S.

The   annual  dinner of the   corps  takes place shortly   and   this   will  probably take the form of   a   banquet to Lee.  NELSON MINES AM MINING  ��� Promising Claims Bonded.  A. II. Kelly has bonded the Little Joe and Montagu mineral claims  from the owners, George II. Keefer,  Joe Chipman and M. C. Monahan.  The claims are on Forty-nine creek,  below the May and Jennie property  and are regarded as promising. Mr.  Kelly will probably put a crew at  work on the property when the  wagon i'dad up tho creek is completed.     .. ���  ceed to work the property in a  manner which will demonstrate the  merits of the True Blue in particular and the section.in general.    .  The creAV at tho Venus mine is  still engaged in sinking on the vein,  the winze" having attained a depth  of SS feet from No. 3 tunnel. Some  unusually high free gold has been  discovered on the Venus recently  and the management is hopeful of  locating the mother lode from  which it came. No announcement  has been made anent the installation of the stamp mill at the  Venus, but this is not surprising as  the understanding always has been  that the company would wait for  sleighing before0 taking their plant  up the hill.  W. H. Dowsing has returned to  Spokane, where ho will make his  headquarters. A comprehensive  display of mineral from the Nelson  district together with photographs  typioal of British Columbia mining  operations will be on exhibition at  his'Spokane olllce.,  Henry Ray, manager of the London Consolidated and Richelieu  properties on Crawford creek, is in  the eity en route to Port Hill, Idaho,  from where he is importing thirty  head of cattle to supply the camp  with beef during the winter. The  animals will be- slaughtered on  reaching the mine, and frozen for  use as desired. -Work has recently  been started on the Richelieu property, thus materially increasing the  crew at the mine. The wagon road  is sufficiently advanced to permit a  team to get through to the terminus.  ���w  EC.   BTEES  & CO.  "tSrELSON  KASLO  SJ&.3STX30-N*  STOVES!   STOVES!   STOVES!
