Array -.-?-*v3?l  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  TUESDAY MORNING OCTOBER 30  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  What Is Being Done in the Champion Creek Section in  Developing Its Resources.  MINING   STOCK  QUOTATIONS.  The following were the quotations of British Columbia mining  stocks on the Toronto Stock Exchange yesterday:  INTERESTING DETAILS OF PROGRESS AND POSSIBILITIES  During the approaching winter  the Champion creek section of the  N'elson mining division will enter  tlu- producing stage unless some-  thing altogetherunforeseenarisesto  interfere with the' plans of the  Onondaga Mining Company ��� of  Syracuse, New York.' The company  has purchased the Yellow Jacket  group, ordered a 10-stamp mill  with steam plant and has a considerable force - of men on ��� the  ground at the present moment.  Their intention is to erect the mill  without delay and to enlarge it  next spring by the addition of  twenty stamps.  The Champion creek country  came into prominence last spring  sifter an era..of <|uietness covering  several years. The district was  prospected and staked about the  time of the boom in the Rossland  camp, but the prospectors iii most  instances permitted their locations  to lapse. Last spring, however,  tho Syracuse syndicate, of  which Louis Will, the millionaire  wax dealer, is the head, entered the  field. They took up the Yellow  .Jacket group, comprising the Maud  S., Standard, Toueh-Me-Not and  Yellow. Jacket claims. Thomas  ��� James, who had been identified  with Mr. Will in various mining  properties in California and elsewhere, took charge of the proposition and commenced work in May.  His report wa.s satisfactory and on  August 4tli "the first payment of  $10'000 was made on the purchase  price of $05,000 through a Nelson  hauk. The company? has during-  fiie summer and fall ' expended  $30,000 in demonstrating the  claims.  The battery of stamps was ordered in Sherbrooke, Ontario, some  time since, and Mr. James is in Nelson today sending tracers after the  plant and arranging transportation  matters with local C. P. R. officials.  The method of reaching , the property heretofore has been via Waterloo, on the Columbia, between Robson and Trail. Ho proposes, in order to facilitate handling the machinery, to put - a ferry at the  mouth of' the Kootenay river with  a siding from the railroad. ; This  will then., be the point/of transshipment, and the. change, is of .im-.  portance to Nelson inasraucli as supplies will be forwarded from here  rather than from Rosslaud. Application has been made for a trail to  -the-propert3vand_W.=A.=McLeau,=  district superintendent of roads,  will go over the ground next week  Tt is thought that a practicable  route will be found along the ridge  to connect with the Whitewater  trail which runs within six or seven  miles of the Yellow Jacket. This  will give transportation facilities  direct from Nelson.  At the present time a crew of 27  men is employed on the Yellow  Jacket, and 25 men will be worked  all winter. Ten men are excavating on the mill site, two shifts are  workiug in the lower tunnel, six  men are building a road from the  camp to the government road on  the hill and five are engaged in  widening the government trail  from Waterloo to five feet so that  the machinery can be hauled in.  The camp is well situated and the  cabins are comfortable. The property is a free milling proposition  with two principal leads. One  ledge is on the Maud S and has IK)  inches of-ore carrying $22.50 in  gold all across. The second ledge  on the Yellow Jacket is IS inches  wide and averages $35. A sawmill  plant is now being taken up from  Waterloo to cut lumber for the  stamp mill. Mr. James speaks with  confidence of the future of the property. "Before the winter is over,"  ��� he says, "yon will see the Yellow  Jacket turning out $10,000 bricks  every month."  Building a Trail.  A trail is to be built this fall to  re*ach properties oh the divide between Forty-nine and Eagle creeks  which cannot be served by the  wagon road now being constructed  along the bed of the creek to the  May and Jennie and other groups.  W. A. McLean is going over the  ground today to determine the  most advantageous line to take.  Two routes are under consideration,  one via the Granite wagon road, to  the Star group from where the new  trail will be extended as far as  necessary, while the alternative is  to extend the old wildcat trail.  Either line would serve the section  well. Among the properties which  will benefit by the work are the  Pingree, Royal Arthur, and King of  Forty-nine groups. In connection  with the Forty-nine wagon road,  foreman William Waldie notified  John A. Turner, government agent,  yesterday that almost 2_ miles of  the road was completed. * W. A.  McLean has expressed the opinion  that the work is. the. best piece of  road building he has seen in the  Nelson'district.-! A team of horses  was sent'out yesterday. Twenty-  one men are employed on the road.  Boston Syndicjite Buys Stock.  Tlie Broken Hill Mining Company of Ymir has made arrangements to place a large block of  stock with a Boston,-Massachusetts,  syndicate and will start work  shortly on the Wilcox group. A  strike of high grade sulphide ore  was made last week on the upper  level, and the vein will be worked  during the winter. The company  expect to ship several cars of ore to  the Trail or Nelson smelter, and are  figuring on net returns close to $50  per ton. In handling the ore from  the upper level it is interesting to  note that the grade is too heavy  for a horse to ascend, and the ore is  brought down the first 400. feet by  fastening the sacks in rawhides  and shooting them down over the  snow to a-point where horses can  be taken. In the spring tlie erection of a ten stamp mill to handle  the free milling ores from the  lower   levels is contemplated.  A favorable report is to hand  from the Robin Hood group on the  east fork of Cottonwood creek. It  is stated that as development continues the lead is widening and the  class of ore encountered is improving consistently. The group is  under bond to a coast syndicate,  represented by Bruno Thomas, and  they are well satisfied with the  showing. The characteristic of the  section is harrow leads on the surface cwith much fiee gold. If the  veins prove continuous and reasonably wide with depth the section  _will go- ahead _wi tli aboom ,^i [ ___  stock. A��ked.  AUiaboscu  S 5 Su  B. C. Gold Fields.        . :.

Took Away Their Breath.  London, October 20.���Sir Charles  Wilson, president of the Grand  Trunk railway of Canada, and other  officials of that line have not yet  recovered from their surprise at  the resignation of Mr. Charles M.  Hays, general manager of the Grand  Trunk, and his acceptance of the  position of president of tho Southern Pacific railway. Sir Charles  said this evening that tlie three  days of London holiday since the  announcement of Mr. Hays' resignation had'hot given the directors  a chance to consider the future.  '���So far," he added, "no definite action has been taken:"  It is reported that there is a  strong current running in favor of  vice president E. St. John of the  Seaboard Airline. This movement  is believed to have originated  among the Canadian stockholders.  0  :*  8  2i  ������B  38  9  G  ���l.i  10  3  3  0  8  A  45  " .I.1  ..in"  :i  no  15  f:  .  2fi  m  r.t  1 05  :'i  n  ���til  Bid.  $ 5 00  i!'j  10  i;  u  OP  120  ri 4i-  45 00  :t  jjj  fii  U  CASES ON CIVIL-CALENDAR  California    Deer Trail Consolidated   Kvening Star   Colden Star .'.

A Democratic Crowd Refuses to  ten to the Great New  York Orator.  Lis-  Cobelsk, Illinois, October 29.���  Five hundred men undertook to  break up senator Depew's meeting  here this evening and. partially  succeeded. Mr.j Bryan had spoken  here in the ��� morning "at. the fair  grounds. When senatoi Depew  arrived he .was conducted to a platform in the main street and faced  six thousand people. The disturbing element manifested its intentions before the meeting began.  One drunken man was hustled, out  of the crowd. Others iu like condition resented this. Then there  was a fight. Senator Krum, whose  home is in this district, tried to  speak and was howled down. Then  he appealed to the disturbers to  respect senator Depew personally  if they did not respect his party.  The ugly element jeered at this.  Senator Depew started tq;talk, but  hundreds of men hurrahed for  Bryan, hissed McKinley's name and  cat-called senator Depew. Three  .clergymen^of^the^towniStoocLbefore.  the crowd and begged and asked for  fair play. Senator Depew got started  again and at last, made himself  heard. His voice was so distinct  that, tlie crowd became quiet for a  moment. "Did Bryan leave orders  today to break up this meeting?"  he asked. Following this he continued: "No Republican would ever  break up a Democratic meeting; no  Republican is afraid of free speech.  Are the Democrats who are engaged in this effort to break up  this meeting afraid of the truth?  Ts your leader, Bryan, afraid of free  speech?" c. i  This was followed by a renewal  of the disturbance. There were  hurrahs for Bryan and cat calls for  McKinley. Senator Depew began  his speech on the acquisition of the  Philippines, but the uproar continued. "You remind me," said the  speaker, "of copperheads who used  to come to the Union meetings during the civil war."  More noise and.hur'rahs for Bryan  greeted ��� this statement. Senator  Depew cut his speech short and  walked from the platform to his  train, followed by nearly 1000  people.  Bryan Feels Well.  New York, October 29.���"And I  am feeling tolerably well, I thank  you," was Colonel Bryan's response  when told tonight that he had  made thirty speeches during the  day and thus broken his own record  for speech making. As a rule the  speeches were not so long on most  occasions, but they exceeded in  number by nine or ten those of  any previous day during the present campaign.  The long drawn' out case of  Waterland ats. City of Greenwood  was concluded yesterday afternoon  when the jury returned a verdict  awarding plaintiff #3000 damages  and costs of action.,-. The suit is  the lengthest one on "the records  of the court for tlie present sitting  and was notable for the amount of  expert evidence submitted by engineers, architects .and builders. A.  Leamy, city solicitor of Greenwood,  and W. A. .Galliher- conducted the  defence, Macdonald & .Johnson appearing for plaintiff.  Tho action of Stamford vs. ITed-  dle did not occupy the court long  yesterday, a verdict? being given in  favor of defendant/ The suit was  instituted . to recover $'i00 and  12,500 shares of stock in the Venus  Gold Mining Company which plaintiff alleged was due him as conimis-  'sioh on the sale of the Venus group  to the Toronto.-* people who now  j hold tlie property. The defendant-  maintained that his interest in the-'  Venus was obtained by. him for his  services in connection with the deal,  and as the matter.- resolved into a  question of deciding between the  oaths of the litigants, the suit was  thrown out. -R.rM. Macdonald appeared for the'defence and W. A.  Galliher represented the plaintiff.  When court > opened yesterday  morning two\ prisoners were arraigned to elect as to their trials.  One was William Harris, the wealthy Slocan City;man who attempted  to kill'himself.-.nie was very weak,  and his. counsels'W._-A. Macdonald,  requested time ^6"*cou9ide/his plea.  This was granted.: The.^ bullet  which passed through Harris' body  one inch over his heart is in the  possession of the court officials. It  is a 38-caliber ball and a small piece  of the shoulder blade ��� is imbedded  in the tip. Mrs. Harris .was in the  cityon Sunday, but "left yesterday  for her old home in England.  The second prisoner was Esrner  Wallace alias J. A. Sheets charged  with theft from the C. P. R. He  was represented by W. A. Galliher  and choose a speedy trial, requesting a brief delay before the date of  the trial should be set, which was  granted. --'  The action of Jenuings vs. Van  Arsdale et al. will be withdrawn  from the civillist; for this court, a  settlement having been reached.  Taylor & Hannington have arranged  tlfalftlunf^1 i en f"^  ceive the property claimed in the  action, each party to pay its own  costs. The suit involved the ownership of the Little Greenhorn fractional adjoining the North Star  group and was notable because the  litigants had gone through the entire list of pleadings down to a re-  lenter, thus constituting a record  for British Columbia.

SEVERAL IMMENSE BUILDINGS RAZED TO THE GROUND  "NOVEMBER 29 SET FOR THANKSGIVING  DAY.  Text of McKinley's  Proclamation���A  Prosperous Year Has Been the Portion of Our Neighbors.  Washington, October 29.���The  state department today issued the  following: "By the president of  the United States of America (a  proclamation.) It has pleased Almighty God to bring'our nation an  safety and honor through another  year. The works of religioh and  charity have everywhere been  manifest. Our country through all  its   extent   has been blessed with  abundant harvests. Labor and the  great industries of the people have  prospered beyond all precedent.  Our country has spread over the  world. Our power and influence in  the cause of freedom and enlightenment have extended over distant  seas and lands.  "Tho lives of our official representatives aud many of our people  in- China have been marvellously  preserved. AVo have been generally exempt from pestilence and  other great calamities and even the  tragedy which overwhelmed the  city of Galveston made evident the  sentiment of sympathy and Chris-  tia1rclaaxitjrb"y_virtue_of_whiclrwe"  are an united people. Now, therefore, 1, William McKinley, president  of tlie United States, hereby appoint and set apart Thursday, the  29th of November next, to be observed by all the people of the  United States at home and abroad  as a day of thanksgiving and praise  to Him who holds tho nations in  the hollow of His hand.  "I .recommend that they gather  at their several places of worship  and clovoutly give Him thanks for  the prosperity wherewith He has  endowed us for seed time and liar-  vest, for the valor, devotion and  humanity of onr armies and navies  and for all His benefits to us as individuals and as a nation, and that  they humbly pray for the continuance of His divine favor, for concord and amity with other nations  and for righteousness and peace in  all our ways."  A Lively Shake-Up.  Caracas; Venezuela, October 29.  ���At -l:15 p. in, today Caracas was  visited by a severe earthquake.  Fifteen persons were killed and  many others injured. Great damage was done to buildings, including  the Pantheon and churches. Tho  United States legation was badly  damaged, but all the occupants  escaped unhurt. President Castro,  who leaped from a balcony on the  second floor of the government  house, had one of his legs broken.  William Henry Dovoton Haggart,  the British minister, had a miraculous escape, the ceiling of tho first  story of the British legations having  fallen upon him and buried him in  the debris.  New York. October 29.���The big  building of Tarrant  & Company,  makers   of   medicinal    specialties,  standing at the northwest corner  of Greenwich and Warren streets  and filled with chemicals, took fire  in some way that may never be  known at about 12:15 this afternoon.   It was sixteen minutes after  noon that a citizen rushed into the  house of fire engine 20 on Chambers  street near Greenwich, and shouted  that Tarrant's drug house was on  fire.  ' He   had  seen   a  volume  of  black smoke coming from the third  story   window.    . An   alarm   was  turned in.    Soon afterward second  and third alarms were turned in.  One lire  company from  station  00  had just arrived Avhen a terrific explosion occurred and threw the entire engine  crew down  the  stairway.   The   firemen,  realizing   the  danger   of   their position,   rushed  from   the building  to tlie street.  The explosion had filled the street  in front rwith a shower of falling  glass and small debris, which sent  the crowd which was already gathered on the opposite sidewalk fleeing for safety and caused the horses  hitched to the engines -to rear and  try to get away.  The second explosion, occurred  about five minutes after the first.  From tlie accounts of witnesses the  building seemed to leap into the air  and in a moment masses "of. brick  wall, timbers and stone were falling,  into the streets. The force of ��� tlie  explosion tore away the walls of  the big commission store houses  fronting on Washington^ street and  caused them'to collapse, falling all  atonce.in.'a mass of timbers, boxes  and barrels from which the flames  burst out from the Tarrant building  like the belching of a cannon.  Across Warren street to the opposite buildings the flames leaped  setting them all afire also, the force  of the explosion demolishing windows and all wooden structures  about the houses. In a moment  Warren street was choked up with  a mass of debris and the whole  place was aflame. ��� The great explosion was followed by half a  dozen scarcely less intense aud by  a countless number of smaller ones.  Half an hour after the explosion  the streets for blocks around the  vicinity were crowded with fire apparatus and a score of ambulances, while hundreds of police  were being rushed from all the  lower precincts of the city to form  lines aud many priests from near-  by parishes were going here and  there in the smoke-obscured thoroughfares seeking for injured who  might need their aid. From the  buring district a column of smoke  was rising high in the air, mingled  witli llames that could not be controlled by the hundreds of streams  thrown upon them.  The second explosion  carried de  struction in every direction.   That;,  it did not cause a wholesale loss of t;  life was due to the fact that almost ;-.  ten,minutes'  warning came aftei'V  the first cry of fire���a cry that wast/v  a real warning to the people .who;,:  knew the character of the chem- -'.,  icals in the^burning buildings, and ^'|  fully five minutes occurred between"-;'  the first and minor explosion, whichy  warned everybody within . hearing,%��\  and   the   second   one.      ImmenseY;,  masses of masonry, pieces of cor- ���  nice, great beams, windowj casings f1.':!  and an indescribable mass of wreck-"^'  age of every description tumbled-'-  suddenly into the street in front" bt'S'  the building.

The offices of the Irvin"g?r7.|  Bank and of Maclem Bros., bankers ?(  and brokers, were nearly wrecked.";;  At the first explosion an -attempt/'  was made to gather all the monejr>><|  and papers that were lying on- the!  counters   together and to   thrbw",,k|  them into the safes and it was sup'./-*' 1  posed that this had been done when"*_J  the second explosion brought flying'*';!  glass and plastering from the sky-^'"  lighted   ceilings   down about" theu^  heads   of   everybody .and'  caused':jj  them to flee in a hurry. ; Captain^  McCIuskey, of the detective b^xreau;"';?|  who hurried every'available'marr'^  of his staff to the fire, was appealed^,  to to protect"the funds of the bankV;��1  he being told that they Yferein theiSl  Ivault, the door of'Avhich was_sup%"i.F  'posed   to , be locked.

Ross i, a NO, October 29.���"White  Bear workings are now clear of  water down to the 170 foot level.  It is anticipated that the workings  will be completely clear of water  to the '}r>0 foot level by next Sunday  night. From this level diamond  drill borings will be made for the  purpose of locating the extension of  the south ledge of the Le Roi, which  is supposed to run through the  northern portion of the White Beat-  property.  The Velvet mine, on Sophie  mountain, has let a contract for the  hauling of 2fi tons of ore a day from  the mine to Velvet siding, about  two miles below Sheep Creek  station. This ore will be shipped  from there to the Northport smelter. Fred Lindburg has been  awarded the contract for hauling  tho ore, and shipping will commence just as soon as sleighing is  possible. He has returned from  Myers Falls and Chewelah, where  he purchased a number of horses,  which will be engaged in hauling  the ore over tho new wagon road.  Five four-horse teams will be in use  and the hauling will bo continued  all winter. There is more ore on  the dump at present than can be  hauled out this winter without  going into the mine for.it. This  will add a new shipper to the list.  Thoie are 120,000 tons of ore iu  sight in the Velvet.  Train Wreck.

The committee   had    a   conference    with  representatives of the Bonnington  Falls   Power   Company    and    the  tramway company yesterday, and  tlie result of the conference  is a  proposition   from   these   two corporations   (through  the   tramway  company) to sell the city power to  operate SO arc lamps for tho sum of  $00 per annum per lamp, and if the  city is not in  a position to put in  the plant and  pole  lines  that the  tramway company "will bear that  . burden on condition that the city  purchases   it   at the end of   tAVo  years at cost, plus the amount expended   in   keeping   it   iii   repair.  The cost of   the  plant is put at  $5300, approximately; and the cost  of trimming the lamps is placed at  $2 per.lamp per month.    Summed  up, the proposition  is: If the city-  bears the expense of installing the  street electric lighting   plant the  tramway company will furnish the  power to operate the plant at: $8  per lamp per month, and charge  .another $2 per lamp per month to  keep them  trimmed.      Or, if  the  city does not wish to install the  plant  tlie tramway company will  do it on  condition that the  city  takes  it off   their hands   in   two  years at cost, plus the amount expended iu keeping it in repair.  /k. proposal also came from the  gas company. It estimated the  cost of operating a 50-horse-ppAver  gas engine for seven hours a day  for 805 days in the j-ear at $193.05  a month. The city would be required to purchase the engine and  install all the>plant.  The Nelson Saw & Planing Mills,  Limited, offered to deliver the city  power at the company's sawmill on  Hall street wharf for .$5 per horsepower per month ; or furnish them  an engine and boiler of from 50 to  00 horse-poAver capacity for $4 per  day.   The Kootenay Electric Supply &  Construction Company offered to  furnish and operate fifty 2000 c.p.  arc lamps for $10 per month on a  two-years' contract. The only expense that the city Avould incur  under this proposal would be for  erection of the pole lines and hanging the lamps.which would be about  $1500.    The aboAre is a fair presentation  of the several proposals. The tramway company Avants $S per horsepower per month���that is, if the  current required to keep each 2000  candle-power arc lamp burning  efficiently is equal to one horsepower; the sawmill company Avill  furnish steam for $5 per horsepower per month; the gas company  will furnish the gas to operate a 50  horse-power engine for $103.05 a  month, and the Kootenay Electric  Construction ��fc Supply Company  will bear all the expense, except  erecting pole lines, and operate fifty  2000 candle-power lamps for a term  of tAvo years for $10 per lamp per  month. The tramway company  seem to be unwilling to sell the city  power at so much per horse-power  per month. They evidently want  to be in a position to say to the  people: "We are in partnership  with the city in the' 'street-lighting  business, Avith the hope that aato  Avill in time be a partner in that  far-better paying business, incandescent lighting." Another point:  It sells electric power "to P. Burns  & Co. for $5 a horse-power per  month; but if the city wants poAver.  it must' pay $8. This is'hardly a  fair Avay of doing business, seeing  that the tramway company is asking the city to help it out on a  losing proposition.  If the tramway company has  power to sell, and has offered to  sell it to private firms for five  dollars per horse-power per month,  why cannot it sell power to the  city at the same price ? The city  pays its bills as promptly as any  private firm. The city is not in  need of a partner to help it operate  the public utilities it now owns, and  the sooner the . tramway company  people realize this the better it will  be for the tramway company.  educated, class. The doing away  with the senate is. also a weak  point, but Mr. Foley did not take  that plank up Avhile here. Perhaps  it Avould be Avell to lower the Liberal party's prices. There are very  few labor candidates ; in the field,  and if all were to succeed they  would still have to cling to the  party in control of affairs in order  to pass any bills through tlie house.  I have heard a great deal about  their finding Mr. Foley underground. Where would they expect .to find him during working  hours? If they had come around  earlier they might have found him  at his boarding house.  Joseph Irwin.  WRITTEN  BY  LIBERALS.  Tiif. Trihusk has placed n part of one column  al the disposal of the liberals, whose views  will be ovpres'wd therein from time lo time during the oampu'Kn. A Hke privilege te accorded  tlie la.iliur part.y and the Connervaiivos.  As statements of intelligent and  unbiased, observers the following  citations will be of interest: "I have  always avoided introducing politics  into the pulpit, and I will not do  so now; but I cannot help instancing as one of tlie reasons for  thanksgiving the fact that we have  a premier Avho has proven himself  so statesmanlike in the administration of the high functions of his  office; avIio is so stainless in his  character; who is so jnst and conciliatory in his public utterances;  Avho is so broadly and unselfishly  patriotic that, although a Catholic  in his religious,faith, he commands  tho confidence and loyalty of Protestants as no other man in political  life at the present time could."���  Rev. Dr. Thomas of Jarvis Street  Baptist Church, Toronto.  Labor Candidate Criticized.  ���Nrw-DENVERr-October���29.-���To  The Editor of The Tribune:     I believe there is going to be a Dominion election next month, although  political matters are very quiet as  yet in our town.     We have only  had   one   of   the   candidates���Mr.  Foley���to give an  address, though  the other two may do so before  polling day.    It is usually admitted  that   the    labor    unions   will go  pretty strong in favor of Mr. Foley,  but they, did the same for It.  F.  Green.last summer.    There is still  a large vote to be counted for the  others if they get around arid show  themselves.       I   fancy   that   the  majority of those in this town who  supported J. Keen last election will  support A.    H.   MaeNeill for the  Dominion.   There are many weak  points in Mr. Foley's address, the  opinion of his friends to the contrary notAvitlistanding.   If both the  old    federal    parties   are  as poor  legislators as he states they are,  Avhy    would . he   have the Labor  party make itself a sort.of cats paw  for either one?   He states that his  party does not want to be iu a position to take control of affairs and  yet he would like them to be in  such a position as to say to the  premier:     "You    must    legislate  along  our   line   or   off goes your  political head."   In such-a case why  should they not step in and make  the   laAvs   themselves ?      He also  seems    to    boast      that     he     is  not educated, and yet he says he  has common sense (?).    Surely common   sense  would advise him   to  leave these matters for the public  to find out.   Of all classes to bo deliberately chosen as our-lawmakers  the worst, in .my opinion, is the un-  "The steamer Manchester  Commerce  brought  to   Manchester  on  Monday  1,000 -eases   of Canadian  pears   (Bartlett,   Flemish   Beauty,  Duchess, Howell, Clargcau and An-  jou), tAventy-five cases  of peaches  and one  hundred, and twenty-five  cases  of dessert apples.   This is a  special consignment, shipped under  the   auspices   of the lion. Sydney  Fisher, minister  of agriculture for  Canada. "Hitherto  Canadian  fruit  has suffered a little in transit.    It  is noAV  thought, however,  that a  perfect   system   of    packing,  and  refrigeration has been devised, and  the condition in whicli the present  consignment    reached   Manchester  bear's   this   out.

LATE OF THE ROYAL HOTEL, OATJBASfg  VOTE  FOR . . . .-.,  AH.  MacNEILL  of Rossland  Candidate of the Liberal-Conservative Party for Member  of the House of Commons for Yale-Cariboo.  PLATFORM  Adopted by the Liberal-Conservative Party in Convention  at Revelstoke^ September 15th, 1900  We, the delegates of the Liberal-Conservative party of Yale-Cariboo  constituency, in convention assembled, reaffirm the principles of the  party, and more particularly that cardinal principle, protection to home  industries, and that that principle.be carried out so that all sections of  the country shall equally, share its benefits.  The one industry -on which the prosperity of this constituency is  almost wholly dependent is-raining ; and we believe that our mining industries are as fairly entitled to protection as the manufacturing industries of Eastern Canada ; therefore, we advocate that the duties on lead  aud leadproducts.be increased, so that they shall be as high as those now  iiapose"d"by"the"Uriited"States"on"the"same"articles; ~-���"-^ ^   That tlie 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 Jap-  Lighted by EJectricityj and Heat-    anese, and all classes who cannot become good citizens of the Dominion  of Canada, and suggest the adoption of the principles of the Natai Act.  British Columbia has not now the representation in the federal parliament that she is entitled to: therefore we advocate that when the  redistribution of seats is made that this constituency shall be given representation according to its population.  That it. augurs well for the success of tho party that Hugh John  Macdonald has decided to leave the field of provincial politicsto take  part in the larger one that affects the people of the whole of Canada.

A crowd of United States surveyors and allotting agents were recently working in the reservation
of the Comanche Indians, surveying, establishing corner-stones and
getting everything ready to divide
the land into quarter sections. The
Indians did not take very kindly
to the division and allotment, of
their land, arid, seeing that the
whites were scared, they decided
to act. Tho surveyors were all
tenderfeet from Washington, Suddenly, without warning, their camp
was invaded by a yelling, hooting

could not stand the pressure, and

Confirmation has been received
in Washington of the execution on
July 20th of Chang Yen Hoon, the
former Chinese minister to the
United States. Chang was a loyal
adherent of the emperor and a
warm supporter of the latter's reform movements. When the empress dowager supplanted the emperor two years ago Chang was ordered to be beheaded, but through
the intervention of the American
and British ministers his punishment was commuted to banishment
in the district and province of
Kashgaria. It now appears that
the empress dowager, taking advantage of the late reign of terror
at Pekin and knowing Chang's influence with the emperor, ordered
his execution by decapitation.
Chang was (Considered by those
familiar with his affairs as one of
the ablest men in China.
The mantle of W. G. Grace lias
fallen upon worthy shoulders, for
prince Raivjitsinhjiihasagain proved
himself the "champion batsman of
the year in England and, by compiling an aggregato of 3005 runs,
has once more exceeded the 3000-
mark, a feat never accomplished by
any other batsman in a season's
first-class cricket. Han.jitsinh.ji is
28 years old and is the second son
of Jiwan Sinhji, who is' connected
with the family of Jam (or sovereign) of JsTawanger, the largest state
under British protection, in Kathi-
war. Ranjitsinhji's remarkable average of 87.57'for 40 innings will-be
better understood by a comparison
with the figures of some of the
other first-class players in England
this season. After Ranjitsinhji tlie
.next man on the list is C. B. Fry,
whose average is 30 runs per inning
lower than that of the prince, and
these two are away ahead of any
other batsmen in England this year.

Ran Into a Slide.
A bad wreck occurred yesterday
morning on the Crow's Nest road:
The extra freight westbound ran
into a big rock slide four miles east
of Creston at a point where the
embankment is 100 feet high.
When the engine struck the slide
she left the track and plunged down
hill taking three ears along. The
cars were reduced to matchwood
and the engine was badly wrecked.
Engineer Hugh Brock was seriously
cut about the head and his fireman
had a narrow escape. The Cranbrook emergency train leached the
scene of the wreck quickly and
trains were delayed only a few
hours. Tl le steamer Nelson, which
connects with the westbound passenger train, was 3i hours late into
(Tiie Tribune bus placed a pari, of one column
at. the disposal of the Conservatives, whose views
will be expressed therein from time to timn during thecampaign. Alike privilege is accorded
the'llaborparty-and^the^lnerals.l^ =
The principles that governed the
actions of the Conservative party
under the able guidance of sir John
A. Macdonald were not far removed
from those which characterized tlie
magnificent diplomacy of the earl
of Beaeonsfield, to whom sir John
was by many compared. The fundamental points of these principles
are the conservatism of all that has
induced to the 'upbuilding of the
body .politic at home and a firm
conviction that active imperialism
abroad is the I'l-ue solution to the
problem of En gland's greatness.
Tlie Conservative is he who lops
the mouldering branch away iu
contradistinction to tlie axe-leveling propensities of the Liberal,
national and socialistic classes. Iu
Canada, of necessity, politics beget
local coloring; nevertheless, let all
remember that in voting for the
Conservative party one is best upholding that imperialistic policy
which has within this month received such a splendid endorsement
at the -hands of the electors of
Great Britain and old Ireland.

Nelson, B. C.
Those whose minds are still wavering, and who missed hearing
mayor Goodeve on Friday, lost a
treat, for it was one of the ablest
addresses on the political questions
of the day ever given in Nelson. So
much so that we hear of masterly
activity in the Liberal and Labor
camps and a general hustling to get
a sneaker who will offset in some
measure the good effect produced
by Mr. Goodeve. Even if the
Liberal ranks contains such an exponent of its principles he will find
it hard plonghiug through the maze
of facts presented by the mayor of
Rossland. Of the many unredeemed pledges none stands more
prominent than the tariff. There
can bo no straddling the fence on
this issue—it must be free trade or
protection. Tlie Conservative platform on this point is clear and unmistakable, that party advocates
protection' to infantile industries,
but no more. It does not endorse
the continuing of the duty on agricultural implements now that the
Canadian manufacturers can compete in the markets of the world;
neither does it approve of handing
the coal oil business in tho Dominion
over to the Standard Oil company.
At present rate Ave may anticipate
the advent of other gigantic trusts
and schemes to secure a general
mortgage on us all in favor of
Uncle Sam.    	
The Labor party appeals this
morning particularly to the merchants and traders of Nelson on
the general ground.") that without
the laboring element they would
require to close their doors. One
might.go a step further and say
that without, capital they, the' laborers, would be iii the poor house
and soon. All the parties whose
platforms - contain revolutionary
principles are " more loyal than the
king" ; in this instance it is well
known that* the Labor party in
Rossland have started a co-operative
store and contemplate extending
their operations to this and other
towns. One rises to enquire how
much it will profit the merchants of
Nelson to vote for Chris Foley if
the laboring element is going to do
its shopping, on a co-operative
basis? And echo answers Jmot
much !" Beyond a doubt when
labor gets too much power it becomes quite as despotic as capital
and for thafcreason the electors of
Yale-Cariboo, and particularly the
merchants, will not be led away
by such salmon-roe bait as the appeal above referred to.; '
