 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS'A YEAR r  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING OCTOBER  a  J 900  PRICE FIVE; CENTS  r   A LEN&THY ORATORICAL FEAST  Several Hundred Persons Gather at the Opera House to  Hear Political Discussion.  CONSERVATIVE, LIBERAL AND LABOR ADVOCATES SPEAK  Several hundred people attended  tlie Conservative mass meeting at  the opera house last night and were  entertained to a lengthy feast of  oratory by home and foreign talent. The building was not nearly  as full as has been the rule heretofore at local political meetings, but  the audience was appreciative and  the speakers were applauded whenever they waited for it. The meeting opened at S.30 and lasted till  "after 11 o'clock. Very little time  was lost in introducing the speakers, and if all the facts and arguments adduced struck home those  present will certainly have added  greatly to their stock of political  lore. Mayor Goodevo of Rossland  made the hit of the evening in a  speech of an hour's duration. Ho  proved to be.a fluent speaker with  a ready knack of producing telling  arguments against the Liberal administration.  IX Al. Carley was not present to  take the chair, and tho duties of  the position were pleasantly discharged by .lohn Toye. In addi-,  tion to the candidates and speakers,  W. A. Macdonald, Chris Morrison,  J. E. Amiable, John Elliot, John A.  Irving and H. G. Neelands had seats  on the platform. ��� Candidate MaeNeill started the speeehniaking. He-  ; opened by informing his "aifdience  4 that on all- public questions" he  -~*wnld be found strictly within the  four corners of the Liberal-Conser-,  vative platform. After .expressing  the Opinion that there.jyas no.room,  for;a thlrd'party in Dominion politics, this being his sole reference to  the existence of the Labor candidate. Mr. MaeNeill devoted somo  attention to the charge of broken  pledges laid at the door of the Liberals. .This introduced the question of public expenditure, the tariff  and the Chinese question. The  rase of IT. IT. Cook and the senator-  ship he wouldn't buy and corrupt  administration iu the Yukon were  touched on, Mr. MaeNeill then turning to redistribution and the imposition of' duties on lead products  which the Conservatives were the  ouly party who could consistently  grant.  In closing, the Conservative candidate argued that the Liberals  were entitled to no credit for the  era of "good times" during their  regime, for the same wave of pros-  perity had been felt in the United  States and'EhglandT^while thlTEib-  erals' measure of preferential trade  with England had not had a good  effect, for the trade returns showed  that Canadian exports to England  had increased on a smaller scale  than the commerce to any of the  other large markets.  Chairman Toye called on candidate Galliher, expressing the hope  that the audience would give him a  good hearing. Tlie applause which  greeted Mr. Galliher was sufficient  to sot all doubts on the point at  rest. The Liberal candidate apologized for appearing without having  prepared a speech, but remarked  that a good and worthy cause such  as he advocated did not require  much preparation. He could find  nothing Jn Mr. MacNeill's address  to show why any voter should  cast a ballot for the Conservative candidate, and thought  most - of his hearers would  agree on this point. (Applause.)  One of his opponent's points was  that the Liberals deserved defeat  because they had ' failed to fulfil  their/pledge to wipe out protection.  Now the: Conservatives declared  that such a step would ruin the  country totally, yet they asked the  electorate to dismiss the Liberal  Administration because theyj had  not brought about; this ruin.  {Laugnter.) The Liberals had increased the expenditure of the  country, but the funds had been  invested "wisely and would bring  "McTc big returns. The revenue had  increased and was constantly rolling tip, yet no charge had been  brought that the money expended  was not laid out honestly and  wisely. On the prosperity topic  candidate Galliher elicited a round  of applause by admitting  that the  Liberals were not entitled to all the  credit for   tho "good times," but  that they had   the  right men  iu  office to grapple with tlie situation  aud navigate the wave of prosperity in such a   manner as to land  Canada   in   a    foremost    position  among the nations.   Another laugh  was raised when Mr. Galliher started  to discuss the Chinese question  by  referring to his opponent   as   "my  learned   friend."      The   quotation  smacked so strongly of a   court   of  law that the audience had a   'quiet  laugh.   He put himself on record as  opposed to the Orientals tooth and  nail aud pleged himself to do all in  his power to stem and   stamp   out  the tide of immigration across   the  Pacific.     The   Labor   party   came  in    for    attention,    the    speaker  drawing     a    doleful    picture    of  j Mr. Foley sitting by   himself  in   a  corner of the   house   of   commons  mistrusted and:suspected by  both  of the old parties.   This was   common sense he asserted  and a  man  who shouted "rats" from .the   gallery was described as knowing nothing of the matter.    If elected, Mr.  Foley   to   exercise   any    influence  would be forced'to   affiliate" witli  one or the other of the old   parties  and then his' independence   would  go to the winds.    He asked the laboring men to compare the records of  the two great parties now before  them, aud to mark their ballots for  the side which had evidenced a disposition   toward  granting  legislation   along   the   lines   desired,   by  workingmeu.  "I expect," concluded  Mr. Galliher, "to get so .many;.yotes*  when T have tiine"fcbVi>i'epare a'-reais  jam  up speech  that .1 shall   have  easy sailing into the house of commons."  James Wilks followed in the interests of candidate Foley, speaking  for thirty-five minutes. He was  surprised, he said, that the gentlemen who had preceded him had advanced no convincing reason why  either of them should bo supported.  So far as he could see tho two parties were about as one, the Liberals  declaring for free trade, yet retaining the protective tariff practically  as it stood, and the Liberal-Conservatives declaring for protection,  with Hugh John Macdonald,  the much vaunted new leader,  promising the abolition of the tar-  iff on agricultural implements in  Brandon, and sir Charles Tupper  assuring the'people of the east that  all industries would be protected.  "TKCTdistiuction existing-between  Liberal and Conservative policies  was about the same as the distinction between tweedlededee and  tweedlededum. Both parties had  toyed with the Chinese question  and neither accomplished anything.  The Independent Labor party now  proposed to grapple with the problem by sending men to Ottawa  who were pledged to devote their  special attention to these matters  and who were capable of fulfilling  their pledges. Such a man was Mr.  Foley, the candidate in this riding.  (Applause.) One of the great issues  from the Labor party's standpoint  was the need of legislation to bring  about compulsory arbitration. He  didn't like the idea of compulsion and to justify such  legislation it was necessary  to take it for granted that laborers  were unreasonable, which he admitted, and capitalists equally unreasonable, which he believed. An  act which would force the respective parties to bring their complaints  before a properly constituted tribunal, with the power -to make  both adhere to any decision arrived  at would be a boon. He wound up  with an appeal to the voters on behalf of candidate Foley.  Mayor Goodeve concluded the  speeehniaking with a rattling address.- He attacked the legislation  enacted and attempted by the Liberal convention, dwelt at length on  the corruption in various eastern  ridings and spent some time with  the broken pledge question. The  Yukon railway bill came up first  and Mr. Goodeve, after detailing  the tremendous concessions which  the Mackenzie-Mann syndicate  Would   have   secured   under   the  proposed legislation told, how, the  bill was thrown out by the  senate. "If the much discussed  senate never does anything else  during the life of its members it  has earned a right to existence by  its action in throwing out the Yukon railroad bill," announced the  speaker, and the same remark was  made to apply to the Drnmmond  county railway legislation. Coming to the matter-of corruption ' in  elections Mr. Goodeve charged the  Liberals with having stolen the suf-  rerages of the people by stuffing  ballot boxes, etc." He aroused the  attention of candidate Galliher  when starting to give figures from  the West Elgin affair from manuscript.  "Show us  what  you're reading  from," demanded Mr. Galliher, and  the demand   was reiterated until  Mr.  Goodeve replied: "My notes."  "Yes, his notes," interjected.candidate Galliher. facetiously.    "I'll tell  you all about it," said Mr. Goodeve,  turning to the audience, "and then  he'll be glad to take it all -back."  "It will be the first time," was Mr.  Galliher's retort, aud he stoutly refused to admit .the impeachment  that "the   burning   of   the   ballot  boxes was a Liberal dodge.    Coming to the broken pledge matter,  Mr. Goodeve said amid   laughter:  "Since Moses, coming down  from  Mount   Sinai, ' found   the   people  of Israel worshipping' the golden  calf and flung down the tables of  stone,   thereby   breaking   all   ten  commandments, tlie re   has   never  been   such   a   record    of    broken  pledges as that made by the' Liberal  party."   This line of thought .was  followed up at some length, and,  with other points briefly touched  on, concluded his worship's excellent speech a'ndthe meeting. " ~ *  MINES AND MINING MATTERS  CHAPLEAU  OFriOlALS   SOON   TO  RETURN   TO   FRANCE.  Nelson's Exhibit at   Spokane   Was a  ..   Good Advertisement, Says  Mr. DowsiDg.  RAILWAY AND STEAMBOAT  SOME     LARGE    FREIGHT    SHIPMENTS   ON   THE   C.  P.  R.  ^Tlie Storm ..of Last Week,the .W.orstjn  Years on the Lake���The Kaslo  - Still   Tied   Up  The freight department of the  C. P. It. in .the Kootenay and Boundary districts has just, made a new  record. The returns for last week  indicate that 10,200 tons of freight  were' handled, making it the  largest' week's business since the  road was put in. The largest increase is'on the Boundary section  where ore shipments are ,heavier  than ever before. In this section,  East Kootenay has had a large output, the St. Eugene being one of  the principal factors. The Slocan  shipments are also larger than ever  before'ahd"there=is=a=probability'of  still further growth in the immediate future. The Ivanhoe will  enter the shipping list at an early  date and the Arlington is to increase its output shortly.  Building a Pontoon.  The C. P. R. shipyard's crew is  engaged in building a pontoon for  the slip at Procter. It will be the  first pontoon apparatus used at  any of the interior ports, but the  merit of the idea has been demonstrated at coast ports. Instead of  building an apron of the description used on the Nelson and other  slips, the track is laid on the pontoon, which roughly resembles a  barge and can be floated to the position desired. By submerging a  part or all of the craft the track is  brought to the level of the barges  and cars hauled with ease. The  pontoon is intended to rest on the  ground, which makes its use impossible in very deep water such as exists at Nakusp where the end of the  slip is in 40 feet of water.  Miscellaneous.  The lake was calm yesterday  morning for the first time since  Sunday. The storm Avas the worst  in years and seriously interfered  with the towing of bargee, although  the passenger service was run almost on time. The steamer Marion  had to tie up on two different occasions at Balfour.  The steamer Kaslo, recently  added to the Kootenay Railway &  Navigation Company's fleet, is still  tied up in the bay at Kaslo. Her  only business trip was one ruu with  a load of ore to. Kootenay Landing.  The marquis de Dusmot returned  to. the   Ghapleau mine yesterday  after "transacting private business  in the city.     He>-s'tat"es that the  tramway and mill; are; progressing  steadily, and. that pre will probably  be run through the'mill about November .15th.   After waiting a few  days to see that everything is running smoothly Messrs. de Dusmet  and de Grarnniorit -will return to  "Paris, France,' to lay' their report  before   the   shareholders    of    the  Chapleau company.   In the, interim  they will examine several ��� properties and secure.other, information  regarding 'the  district.   Both   expect to return'next summer, and if  the Chapleau proves to be as good  as they anticipate further investments will probably follow.  j �����   Showing Up Well.  T. G. Procter''has returned from  East Kootenay after an inspection  of the work done,on the Alice property. A large. ^reWv'is employed  at the "present .time,.'considerable  outside work, including the erection  of cabins aud other buildings, being  under way. He brought back several sacks of ore from the Alice.  The product is silver-lead, with  close to 00 per cent lead. The ledge  is showing up welLand if the winter's work is as satisfactory as is expected, the company will consider  the advisability of erecting a concentrator and train way on'the/property. The Alice' is so situated that  the difference saved in the cost of  handling the output by ;"means of  meehanicalfaoilitiesris -in "-itself a  handsome profit, so that beyond a"  few trial shipments during the winter, no effort will.bejnado to market the ore until spring.  Was a Oood Advertisment.  W. H. Dowsing has returned  from Spokane with the exhibit of  Nelson district minerals. During the fruit fair Mr. Dowsing  states that he was kept busy constantly answering questions with  regard to British Columbia mines  and expressed the opinion that the  advertisement afforded the country  was beyond estimate.

Mr. Rochester could  only continue the work at immiuentT'  risk to the lives of his party, and J  much as he regrets abandoning the  work with the completion almost  within reach he deemed it prudent  to take no risks, but to return to  Telegraph creek while he had  the  chance.    "Arrangements   may   be  made to bridge the gap with Indian  runners, but nothing definite can  be said on this point by Mr. Charle-  son until he has conferred with Mr.  Rochester, who is on his way out.  found A BUSHEL OF DUMBS  '<?-  A Missouri Blacksmith Returns From South Africa and-  r-'-  The following were the quotations of British Columbia mining  stocks on the Toronto Stock Exchange yesterday:  ~~~ stock;  Athabasca   B.

VALLEYFrEl.n, Quebec, October  20.���Iu spite of many threats made  during the day. that with the advent of darkness the Montreal  militiamen would be sorry that  they had struck Valleyfield, the  evening passed off without the  slightest disturbance. A couple of  hundred men belonging to the Oach  battalion at- Montreal arrived at  ten o'clock, bringing the number of  men on duty up to six hundred.  The soldiers were kept inside the  mill enclosure, The people are  very anxious that the troops should  go.

Jewett, formerly  horseshoer in this city, ha9 - re- -  turned from South Africa with a ���  dozen large diamonds and a mar- J  vellous story. Jewett declares that!  he found a pocket of diamonds  the Drakenberg mountains in Cape-'  Colony, more than a bushel of the'  -precious stones in one pile, but-  nearly all of them slipped from his!  grasp while he'stood gazing on the5  untold wealth.  Jewett left St. Joseph three years;  ago and went to Chicago, where he:  met a young man named Evans,  whom he befriended. Evans died,;  but before his death he gave Jewett;  a map showing the   location   of   a  pocket of diamonds in South Africa.  Jewett carried the map in his pocket for six months before he decided to hunt for the diamonds.      j  "After landing at Cape Town i!  went at once into the country  where the. map-showed the dia-!  monds to be, but could find nothing:  I suppose 1 must have travelled  thousands and thousands of miles  around Beaufort looking for the  place, and at last was rewarded.  "It is a queer feeling you ' have  when you look down on a pile of  wealth greater than that of any  one man", in the world and know  it is*all" your own.

Is  it any  wonder  that  men,  as  they    meet   on  the  streets, in ominous tones ask  each  other   "what next?"    It is a sad  commentary on our much-boasted  civilization that such degenerates  as John Houston and the editor of  the Economist should be permitted  to hatch their devilish conspiracies  against a high-toned organ of public opinion, and against the peace  of our sovereign lady the queen.  The question which seems uppermost in the minds of the people, is,  when and under what circumstances,  was this black, malignant, malevo-.  lent   design   incubated?      Anyone,  who is at all conversant with .the  topography of Nelson and the surrounding country will at once comprehend its natural advantages for.  concocting and disseminating  conspiracies. The mountains, the lakes,  the.lumber,yards,  the, alleysJand'  the back offices of printing- establishments, all seem to vie with one  another .as. offering superior, attrac-  hard most of these kind of- gin mill  operators close up, beat their creditors and emigrate, while responsible  hotel men with the proper kind of  houses have to struggle along and  hold -up people who cannot pay  their board. The license commissioners in all parts of Kootenay  should exercise more .judgiiieht in-  granting licenses to sell boozerine.  There is room for just so many  hotels and no more. Fewer licenses  should mean better service to tho  public, and bettor liquor. As it is  there is no restriction upon the  adulteration of liquor. It is high  time that fools and knaves were refused licenses, if the hotels of  Kootenay are to be saved from  sinking into mere dives for the sale  of jiiu jam promoters and the robbing of men at cards when they  cannot tell a deuce from a knter.  .^K  Pretty High Returns.  ,/    Slocan-Drill.

The Rossland Miner is in sore  distress. Its editor would like it  to support the Liberal party, with  whicli he has affiliated in the past;  but the man in Montana has pulled  the string, and the editor is silent.  The Evening Miner of Nelson is  not consistent. On Thursday it  swore it was the only Conservative  paper in all Yale-Cariboo. On Friday it was not the organ of any  party or of any class. Tlie Miner  was the organ of the mine owners,  as long as they paid it a monthly  stipend ; when the stipend stopped,  the organ grinding stopped. Thie  Miner was a self-proclaimed organ  of the Conservative party until  yesterday, When it found that there  was no subsidy in sight, and it  quit grinding out ; Conservative  music.' What will it'be tomorrow?  Tnrc boards of trade of Victoria  and Vancouver are both striving to  secure for their   respective; .towns  the location of the "projected   Canadian  mint.'   The   Canadian   mint  should be established   at   Ottawa,  the capital of Canada.   Instead   of  striving to secure something they  are not entitled to, the   boards   of  trade of the coast cities should   be  at work trying to get an assay   office established at. some   point   on  the coast in order to stop the   gold  that Is mined in  the.[ goldfields   of  northern   Canada   from   going   to  Seattle.

The undertaking was  simply a proposal to close up the  Miner newspaper, and thus deprive  the citizens of Nelson of- their inalienable right to read soul-stirring  sea    serpent    stories    and    other  thoughtful essays from the pen of  the youthful philosophe*' who  left  his happy home in  Minneapolis to  edit the Nelson Miner.   I submit,  that   inasmuch   as  John Houston  and tho editor of the Economist  only pledged themselves to close up  the Miner, they are under no obligation,   implied   or   otherwise,   to  close up the building now occupied  by that paper.   They simply covenanted to close up the Miner; the  landlord will do the rest.

The 'one industry on whicli the prosperity of this constituency'is  almost wholly dependent is mining; ami we believe that our mining industries are as .fairly entitled to protection as the manufacturing industries of.Eastera Canada---..therefore, we advocate that the duties on lead  =anrt=lead-produc��-ts=beMnereasedfSO-tlmt=they-shaH^  imposed by thefUnited States on the same articles. : ;-  That the out put of the precious metal mines, is largely increasing,  therefore we favior the establishment of a mint, so that'the specie in. circulation, shall beithat of our own instead of that of a foreign country. ;  We advocate the restriction of the immigration of Chinese and.Jap-~  auese, and all classes who cannot become good citizens of the Dominion  of Canada, and suggest the adoption of the principles, of the Natal Act.

CllJESS AS TO FUTURE RAILWAYS.  Vancouver World.  We have the best reason for be-  1 t-ving that there is a perfect nn-  tl-rstanding between president Hill,  ( f the Great Northern, and Alacken-  y.i.s & Mann, who claim that the  control of the charter of tho Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern railway  i -i vested in them, as to the build-  ing of the projected line in lower  l'Yaser valley. .Mr. Hill's system in  t,li<- interior enters Nelson and  Kaslo and thereby taps the trade  of Kootenay lake, the . Lardeau  country and Whitewater valley to  S.indon. By the Red Mountain  railway the Great Northern competes at Rossland with the Canadian Pacific, as it does also at Nelson, Sandon and at New Westminster. Mr. Hill is most anxious to  secure control of the Victoria traffic  to and from the interior points wo  have named. He likewise desiies  an outlet in British Columbia for  Eastern Canada, British and European freight and. passengers, as  well as procuring a share of east-  bound traffic. The only plan by  which this can be accomplished is  by utilizing the charter of the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern railway,  or such portion thereof as will  serve his purposes. It is quite  within the probabilities that the  Eraser valley division of the Great  Northern will include the construction of a line to Chilliwack,  and thereby secure control of an  exceedingly, rich traffic-producing  country on the south side of. the  Eraser, from the coast to the Garden Valley City, traversing the  municipalities,. 'of Delta, Surrey,  Langley,- Matsqui, Sunios, -and  Chiiliwack, in all of which the .settlers at certain seasons ~of the'Vear *  are badly handicapped for want of.  railway -or, other .transportation,  facilities..- *  The building of such a line as is  now contemplated, as the World  has-in by-gone years repeatedly  pointed out, would afford a very deserving class of settlers relief in  this respect. Not only this, but instead of the country being sparsely  settled, as it now is, and there be-  i ng thousands of acres of very desirable laud still in its virgin condition���but in many instances heavily timbered1���new settlers would  tfo in, and .those now there would  Lake f resh courage -and - make sub-,  stantial improvements upon their  holdings, knowing that in doing so,  the producing capabilities thereof  would be largely increased and accessible markets found therefor the  year round, conditions which do not  now exist. Of course the main object  the people of Victoria have in view  in this matter is to have transcon-  -tinentaltrains-arrive-in-and-depart-  i'rom their city; to draw the trade  of the south side of the Praser  river in the lower valley to their  city, as well as secure a more direct  connection With the great interior  than they have at present. The  cost for all this will not deter the  lieople of Victoria from taking the  plunge they arc about to do. It is  1 /with them, at the present juncture,  any port in a storm, so eager are  they for the entrance1 of another  railway line into their city.  But there is more than the building of the line, and the ferryp con-  1 nection we are referring to, in the  scheme. It is no secret that the  Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway  Company would not object to dispose of their interests in that cbri-  cernj provided the consideration for  so doing was satisfactory. The  belief is that this, once: accomplished���and it is on the tapis, to  do so���the Island railway would be  extended to the upper end of- Vancouver Island, to a point at or near  Cape Scott,'from which a superb,  fast,' up-to-date line of : steamers  would ply to and from Skagway  and other northern-ports. The federal as well as the ^'provincial'''' gov-;  ernniehts will be asked for heavy  bonuses, in aid of the undertaking.  Our esteemed . contemporary, the  Victoria Colonist, has of late been  urging the adoption of a "progres-  ive policy" upon the government.  Now,that the cat is out of the bag,  ��� ili- is easily1 imderstqod why, the  warning notes were sounded[so far  in advance. As we havefrequently  urged, the Island Of^Vancouver is a  valuable one to the province.. Its  capabilities are very great,; and - in  ordefto make the most of "its "vast  - THE BMK:01  MlTiSH   CdLOTBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  'Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U.

The accomplishment of this would reduce  the time consumed in reaching  either Skagway in the north, Vancouver, Victoria and other points  in the south, by many hours, and  assuredly would speedily become an  exceedingly popular route.  AN   ELECTRIC  GOVERNOR.   ,  Edward Thunderbolt, a native of  Melbourne, Australia, is in England,  having perfected a patent electric  governor. Soon after his arrival  lie was fortunate in having his gov-'  ernor brought under the notice of  lord Kelvin, who took such great  interest in it that Messrs. James  White, who are so well known as  the manufacturers of all lord Kelvin's inventions, took it up, and are  at present having most extensive-  trials made with it at their pre--  mises by Mr. Thunderbolt. -  ���  There are two types of electric  governors that Mr. Thunderbolt  has designed, and they both act  perfectly in controlling any desired  uniform speed for any kind of stationary or electric engines or turbines notwithstanding the most  violent variations of load, and they  further have the power of entirely  stopping the motors should any  accident occur.  The first type, which is actuated  by the electric power of the circuit-  is arranged to act directly on the  throttle of the engine or turbine',  and is suitable for engines up to 15  or 20 horse power. In the second  type of governor a small air pump  is required,-which exerts a pressure  on a piston whicli is so arranged as to control the throttle or valve gear, the air pressure  being regulated in a most ingenious  manner by mechanism controlled  by the -electric circuit. This type  of governor is suitable for engines  up to any size. "One of these gov-'  ernors has been running for some  time on the electric light engines at  the general postoffice, Melbourne,  and ono has also been recently fitted'  with very marked success on'the  large engines driving the electrical  machinery'for generating the power  for the Liverpool Overhead Railway. .  The governor possesses very  marked advantages over any other  electrical governor, both from the  point of efficiency and also as regards simplicity, and ease of work.  It possesses two very sensitive elements acting in unison���namely,  electricity and- compressed air.  They.act simultaneously and automatically, when the load is increased  Trr_decrertsedrby~turning~on���or_olf_  exactly the desired amount of  steam or water required for working the engine or turbine at the  correct speed, thus affecting a very  great Baving in wearand .tear, more  particularly-as regards lamps' s and  fuel.-. ��� :  Dawson is Booming.  A writer from Dawson under date  of October 4th thus summarizes  the late news of the Klondike camp:  The first sale of government fractions and claims closed yesterday.  Pricesi were good, $20,000 being realized/ Announcement was made  at the close of the sale that all the  ground would be thrown., open for  relocation in November, which was  greeted with cheers and clapping  by the large crowd present. Many  miners were unable to be present  .on account of .the quarantine at the  Forks of Bonanza and Eldorado.  Eldorado is 20 miles from. Dawson,  Smallpox is epidemic there; also  twelve cases on Isolation island,  two miles below Dawson. An isolation hospital, is in course of.construction. No personal alarm is  felt by the citizens of" Dawson, and  there is some uneasiness lest Dawson be quarantined by the outside  world. Half a million of golddust  was, shipped up the river on the  Yukoner on October 2nd. A total  of twenty-five millions has been  shipped out by both routes up' to  date whicli closes the record of the  output for this season. Alex.  King, who murdered Davenport in  July, was executed here yesterday.  Business is very brisk. Dawson is  booming in real estate and building, and has had a large influx of  people during the last two months.  Goods tliat.

The new board of license commissioners of Nelson district met  for the first time yesterday. The  members present were: AV. F.Teetzel, J. A. Gilker and J. H. Matheson.  Two applications were considered.  One of E. J. Curran for a license at  "Bogustown," which was not  granted because of an informality  in the application. The application was opposed by tlie tramway  company because it is said the company wants . "to go into the retail  liquor bnsiiiess atv the same place.  The law as it stands allows the  board to consider applications  based oh plans of a building to be  erected for hotel purposes as well  as for a building erected. Mr.  Curran merely filed plans of his  proposed hotel. Had the application been granted no license would  have been issued until the building  was "completed. The other application was. for a hotel at Crawford  Bay, and was,made by Alexander  McGregor.   It ,was granted.  Mining Records'.

Toronto  Telegram. '"����  Tory Toronto is a phrase which  implies that a great city can be the  property of any faction which may  capture a certain party name. A  Grit Toronto- would mean exactly  the same craven subordination of  patriotism to party. Canadian Toronto is the right phrase, and when  the people learn that the parties  exist" for them and not they for the  parties, Toronto "may imitate the  English cities which go Liberal by  4000 at one election and Unionist by  3000 at the next chance.
