THE GREATER PART OF IT IS SHIPPED AS BULLION  pay a fair rate when they used  electric light, and used it all night,  are now using gas���but they do not  use it all night. They do not even  keep one gas jet burning, to enable  policemen to see through their premises when making their rounds.  NEW COUNTY HEARD FROM  - Nearly all of the mines in what is  generally designated as the Nelson  district are gold mines,  the only  notable exception being the Silver  King.     The best known-of these  mines that are in tho class  of producers are the Ymir, near the town  of the same name; the  Athabasca,  two   miles south of   Nelson;   the  Duncan mines, six miles southwest  of   Nelson;   the   Yellowstone, ten  .miles east of Salmo; and the Bunker  Hill,   fifteen    miles   up   the    Pen  ���    d'Oreille river from Waneta.    All  ta'cse mines have their own mills  ' ' tiiu  by   water power.    The  Ymir  T,,i!-.a,n has 80 stamps, the Athabasca' j  ���-wlO, tii'i Duncan-mines  20, the Yellowstone 10 and the Banker Hill. 10;.  or a  total  of  130 stamps,  falling  . steadily on  ore1 that is" classed as  free milling.    Of the values, fully  75 per cent  is saved on the plates,  is retorted at the mill, and shipped  cither direct or through the banks  to the United States 'government  assay ^.ofiico   at Helena, Montana.  The remainder of' the values are  saved in  the concentrates,, which  are treated at the smelters at Trail  and Nelson.  The value of the ore milled varies.  The greater part of it will average  about $10 a ton, while some of it  goes as high as $40. When run  continuously the mills treat on an  average about 8000 tons a month.  The bullion shipments aggregate  somewhere in the neighborhood of  $05,000, aud the value of the concentrates is not far from $15,000.  The Ymir mine also ships some  clean ore direct to the smelters.  This is a very creditable showing  for a district that receives no  "booming." In fact, it is doubtful  if Nelson district is known as a gold  producer outside of the province  except to the few who happen to  own shares in the Athabasca. The  Ymir and Duncan Mines are both  owned by. old country, companies  and the Yellowstone aud Bunker  Hill by private  parties in Ontario,  Besides the producingminesabove  mentioned, there are fully a dozen  more that will be producers within  a year, and it is not beyond reasonable limitations to predict that  Nelson district will be the largest  producer of gold in the province  within live years.  Developments at the Reco.  In connection with the recent  strike on the Reco property at Sandon, J. Morgan Harris, president of  the Reco-company, gives some details of interest. The strike was  made   on ��� the lowest level on the  ' property,   a   tunnel" having   been  driven /to "tap -theAveiii-200' feetv-  ,'Jowei' than, had been reached pre-^  ajaiipusly; Some difficulty "was" erP"  countered in finding the lead,' a  eoupte. of years elapsing before it'  was definitely located. The lead is  only 12 inches wide, but iu places  it is solid galena carrying silver up  in the thousands of ounces. At  other points the galena is mixed  with sulphide or porphyry. Where  tho galena is clean no assays are  taken, but at a couple of points  where it was thought to be indifferent in quality samples were taken  and gave returns of 414 ounces in  one instance and 549 ounces in the  other. Mr. Harris was notified of  these figures yesterday. He states  that it is possible to secure assays  of 10)000 ounces at. almost any spot  in the mine, and that'- assays of  twice this amount are not uncom-,  mon. The property has not,shipped  extensively in the ordinary sense  of the term, its mining season/being  limited   to   a   few mouths in each  -year.���Great-bullcinshippingis not"  essential to the prosperity of a  property like the Reco, however,  when the average carload gives  half a ton of pure silver. One banner car ran 500 ounces over a ton  of silver bullion. The total output  of the property has been $550,000.  Mr. Harris states that the company  will recommence mining "in December and will take out ore for two  or three months.  Mining Records.  ������/'Yesterday's.mining records were:  Transfers,' a quarter interest in the  Blue Dick and Cliff claims on the  north fork of Salmon river twelve  miles above Erie, by W. J.

Lawson on the  Amphion and Cross Bar;  Dislikes the Kaiser.  Berlin, October 30.���On absolutely reliable authority it is ascertained that emperor William and  count von Buelow alone negotiated  the agreement to the entire exclusion oi priuce   Hohenlohe,   whose  policy had as its pivotal point  closer relation with Russia and  France. It was mainly- for this  reason that prince Hohenlohe tendered his resignation. It also appears that in addition to a number  of reasons of earlier date, emperor  William considered Russia's behavior in connection with' the appointment of count yon Waldersee  "aiid'thewithdrawal "of her-"troops'  from Pekin to be distinctly unfriendly actions. Hence the ap-  proachment between Great Britain  and Germany.  Those who give this explanation  assert that emperor Nicholas dislikes the kaiser and personally distrusts him and they suggest that  this feeling may have had something  to do in bringing about the agreement with England.  Rambler-Cariboo a Mine.  Late news from the Rambler-  Cariboo, a Slocan mine, is of an encouraging nature and shows that it  is a. mine of more than ordinary  worth. This" is shown by the returns from 38 tons of ore which was  the last shipment made. This shipment went 541.9 ounces and 03.3 per  cent in lead to the ton. The 38 tons  yielded $14,508.20. "Seven other  carloads were recently sent to the.  smelter and yielded from $1200 to  $1500 net each to the company.  These seven carloads were taken  from the old workings. The 38  tons were from a new find on the  350-foot level going north into the  hill. In the bottom of the winze  on the 450-foot level while drifting  on the ore body there has just been  encountered a full face of ore that  carries over 202 ounces and over 00  per cent lead to the ton. During  the past summer there was installed  on the Rambler-Cariboo the largest  plant in the Slocan. ,  Smallpox Among the Indians.  Washington, October 30.���Smallpox has broken out on a number of  Indian reservations in Idaho, Oklahoma .and Washington and it is  feared that when the cold weather  sets in the epidemic will become  more widespread and assume a ihore  malignant form. Every possible  effort is being made to stay its progress and the Indian bureau is forwarding vaccine virus to the various  agencies.  Economical-Gas Consumers.  Last night was an exceptionally  dirty, wet night, but Baker street  at 10:30 o'clock was Avell lighted,  although there are only four arc  lights between Railway and Jose-'  phine streets. The light did not,  however, come from the business  houses that use gas for illumination. The houses that use gas weie  dark and deserted. The houses  that use electric light supplied by  the city were as bright as day.  Some of tlie people who loudly  howled   because   they were made  Empress Dowager Again.  London, October 31.���Most seii-  ous trouble, says the Shang-Hai  correspondent of the Daily Express,  is developing in the Yang Tse  region, whither the empress dowager has sent emissaries to raise  powerful armed bodies to exterminate converts and expel  foieigners. She has appointed Yu  Chuan, a notoriously anti-foreign  general, to be military governor of  Vank Tse district.  Poor Old Wang.  Washington, October 30.���The  Japanese legation received a dis-  cTatch today giving the "death of  Wang Weng Shao, imperial^treas-  urer of China. Wang Weng Shao  w.as one ot the most loyal adherents  of the imperial family, and when  they took flight from" Pekin he insisted on following, despite his advanced age. Bis death came from  natural causes, probably from old  age and the fatigues of the flight. .  JUDGE  WENT  ON STRIKE  st  NELSON'S COURTROOM UNFIT FOR  HABITATION.  Harris vs. Curlin, a Sandon Townsite  Case.   Occupies   the   Court's  Attention.  When court resumed yesterday  morning, Mr. Justice Walkem stated  that he would hold no furthur sit-  tings'in the courtroom proper and  adjourned to judge Form's chambers where court will be held until  the docket is concluded. On the  'pl'evious^ayliislorclsliipconfcrSc'ted  a heavy cold and narrowly escaped  an attack of pneumonia as the result of sitting for eight hours continually in the draft from the  windows at the rear of the judge's  alcove. ' The local bar and the  grand jury have drawn attention  to the urgent necessity of repairing  and improving the present courtroom and the fact that the presiding judge cannot fulfil his duties  without seriously endangering his  health will probably be the culminating stroke which will compel the authorities to take immediate action. There is talk of a  meeting of the local bar for the  purpose of representing to the  proper authorities at Victoria the  bad state of the courthouse with a  view to securing improvements in  ventilation an"d~other matters!  The case of Harris vs. Curlin was  continued at court yesterday. The  case is of considerable interest to  every citizen of Sandon and was  warmly contested. Argument commenced shortls" after 10 o'clock and  lasted until 5 p. m. It would appear from what was stated that the  legislation relating to crown grants  of mineral claims is anything but  clear. Counsel for plaintiff contended that his crown grant gave  him surface'rights to the ground  at issue in addition to minerals, the  opposite contentions being that  mineral rights only were conveyed,  the surface rights being not included. The judge allowed counsel  to put in charts of the statutes  from 1892 up to date, showing what  amendments have been made in the  legislation in dispute. This  gave counsel the advantage of  considering each other's arguments and respectively answering deliberatively on paper at any time before December.  The'main contention on behalf of  plaintiff was that his crown grant-  was, on its face, a;grant in fee of  the disputed lots together with  much other land comprising the  Harris addition to the townsite of  Sandon, as well as all minerals,  precious or base, which might be  found on it, and that such a conveyance carried with it the surface  rights. The contention for the defendant was confined to the one  issue as' to whether the surface  rights were conveyed or not, pointing out that the Mineral Act never  contemplated the creation of town-  sites under its provisions.  FALLS   CREEK   CAMP   ANOTHER  PROMISING VENTURE.  Much  Work Has Been  Done During  the Past Season and Indications  for Permanency Favorable.  The general revival of activity in  mining circles' which has been a  feature   of   the present year  has  affected the Falls Creek camp in  common with the^hther sections of  the Nelson districts-More work has  been done on the tfroek during the  season just closing than in any one  season for several/ years, and the  country has conie into the  public  eye as a most promising  field for  further development.   Falls creek  rises in the .Slocan divide and Hows  into Kootenay  river opposite the  mouth of Forty-nine creek.   It is  seven miles in length and claims are  scattered .along both banks.    In its  course ,to  the "river the creek descends   fully   3000   feet,   and' the  stream   could   be   profitably   harnessed at scores of points, a feature  which will doubtless.play an important part in thefuture of the section.   The.characteristic ore of the  Falls Creek district is iron pyrites  carrying gold aud;'eopper, closely  resembling the ores produced in the  Rossland camp. -;<At tlie headquarters of the stream, however, several  fine ledges.of free milling ore have  been located.    --^-  The section was* prospected first  in 1890 and 1891, when William  Moore, M. Monahan arid other pioneers went through - and staked a  number of- claims. The best evidence of the section's" possibilities  is that several-of .these pioneers  have stuck to. the country ever  since and worked their claims from  year to year. Capital has not been  interested in the, properties as yet,  but"for r.'-purel^'pfdspbctors'Z" district it is well developed.-"Nothing  has been accomplished further than  prospecting, but in a number of. instances this has been sufficient to  demonstrate that several" of the  claims are excellent propositions.  One of the oldest' locations on  Falls creek is that of- William  Moore, who lias six or eight claims  within a couple of miles of the lake  on which he has worked steadily  for years. He has six feet of low  grade ore which will probably average seven per cent copper and $3 in  gold. Moore has 100 feet of tunnelling, a shaft and open cuts, aggregating about 200 feet of work.  The Elk and Monarch claims are  located a mile north of the lake as  the crow flies and are owned by  Mike Kealey and Mickey Monahan,  two well-known prospectors. They  have worked" the claims for four  years and have 50 feet of shaft_and_  various other prospect work on the  lead, which ^has 14 feet of ore running 0 to 7 per cent in copper. The  latter figure is about an average of  all the properties in the copper section.  The Queen Victoria claim, owned  by Jim Burr, is crown granted and  regarded as the most promising  property on the creek. Burr was  one of the first men in the country  aud is numbered among the strongest believers in the future of the  section, lie has drifted 75 feet on  a strong lead-of medium-grade ore,  and the-claim shows up well.  The Copper King, adjoining the  Queen Victoria, belonged until  recently to a Montreal syndicate,  which did practically nothing after  taking hold of the property and  selling a few blocks of stock. The  syndicate was not represented on  the ground aud allowed the location  to run out. It has now been staked  and recorded by Joe Duhamel and  is said to have a first-class showing  similar to adjacent properties.  In 1890 and '97 Mike Egan staked  the Rio Tinto, Orinoco "and Maine  around the Queen Victoria and.has  done about $1500 worth of work  since. He has twelve feet of six to  to seven per cent copper ore.  Three years ago Joe Sturgeon of  the Sherbrooke hotel bought the  Copper Clown from Perkins and  Duhamel and has expended about  $1000 on the claim since. The  Columbia & Western railroad runs  through the claim, which has the  distinction of being the highest  grade copper property in the district. Specimens can be obtained,  without trouble which will run 35  per cent, and a fair average of the  whole property is said to.be 13 percent. The lead lias a foot of solid  ore, and the work done consists of  50 feet of tunneling and a shaft on  the vein.  David McBeath of Nelson is interested in the Lo Roi and War  Eagle claims, extensions of the  Monarch and Elk. The properties  are similar in most respects and  will doubtless be valuable propositions some day.  The principal" free milling properties are the Irish group owned by  John McKernan, Alex Carrie and  H. Mason, and the Red Bird and  Britisher owned by R. J. Elliott,  Thomas Moran and George Thur-  man. The Irish has been worked  on a good scale this season and is  showing up unusually well. They  have a good .ledge and the values  are eminently satisfactory considering the depth attained to date.  The Red Bird and Britisher has not  been worked to any. extent but is  said to be a valuable prospect.  With few exceptions the prospectors have come out of the country for the winter. They fully  anticipate that the strong ledges of  their section will eventually attract  the capital necessary to place the  properties on a productive basis  ,and predict a bright future for Falls  creek.  GERMANY SEEMS SATISFIED  AFTEBMATH  OF THB EXFLOSIOf  Four Bodies Have Been Recovered, but There Are Still  Thirty Unaccounted For.  ���frj  SOME OF THE REMAINS CRUSHED BEYOND RECOGNITION;  ANSWER OF THE UNITED STATES  FORESHADOWED.  Ministers Will Act in Unison in Im-  1    posing Conditions of Settlement With China.  Berlin, October 30.���The answer  of the United States government to  the Anglo-German agreement has  not yet arrived here, but an official  of the German foreign office informed the correspondent of the  Associated Press 'today-that Ger-  many was aware of- what the  answer would be, namely a full  acceptance of clauses 1 and 2. The  official ' also asserted that the  answers of Russia and France  would soon bo received.  Bishop An/.er, the German missionary bishop in the province of  Shan Tung, has arrived in Pekin,  where he will assist the German  minister. Dr. Mumni Von Sen war t-  zenstein, with his valuable advice.  Six fathers connected with the  Steyl missions have joined the German troops in China as official interpreters. From official dispatches  it is ascertained that the disturbances in Shan Tung are now  quelled and the construction of the  Shan Tung railway has been resumed. The section from Kiao  Chou to Tsin Tan will bo completed  by-next-spring.   The National Zeitung says: "The  report that Mr. Conger has received  orders to act under certain conditions independently of the other  ministers in Pekin is false. The  ministers, among themselves, without consulting the Chinese plenipotentiaries, intend to establish complete unanimity regarding the conditions to bo imposed on the  Chinese."   How They Size It Up.  iYrcw York, October 30.���Plenty  of money for election bets Avas  offered in Wall Street yesterday,  but aside from a few very small  and generally quiet bets between  friends or acquaintances there was  none actually placed.  Bell & Co., who have put out  $17,500 on Bryan at 1 to 4, reported  no new bets yesterday.  George S. Lancon & Co., of the  Stock Exchange, had $20,000 for a  client'to wager at odds of 4 to 1 on  McKinley. Cooper, Cramp & Boad-  leston, also members of ..the exchange, offered $1000 to $1000 on  McKinley. ���   '   >  In the outside crowd John J.  Judge had $10,000,tobet at 4 1-2 to  1 on MeKinley,'in ;lpts of $500 and  upward, and $20,666 even each that  McKinley would carry Nebraska  and Indiana. E. L. Mordecai offered $8000 at odds of 4 1-2 to 1 on  Republican success.  Colonel Joseph Rickey of St.  Louis walked into Bell & Co.'s office  in the Hoffman house yesterday  and offered to wager $200 against  $2000 that McKinley would not  carry 15 states. The colonel waited  a long time for an acceptance, but  did not get it.  New  York, October  30.���Only  four bodies have been discovered  up to tonight in the ruins caused  by the explosion yesterday in the  Tarrant drug house.    Of these only  one body has been identified, that  of August Schmidt, an engraver, 40  years old, of Brooklyn.    His body  was found pinned down by a six  ton   safe.     The" remaining   three  bodies probably never will be identified,   as   they   are   crushed   and  burned   beyond, recognition.     Indeed, so frightfully have the bodies  been crushed that the sex is undeterminable.  Smoking and steaming  sullenly, the ruins left by the explosions well nigh bafiled the efforts  of   the   thousand   public   workers  today, and "the task of clearing the  streets and digging down into the  debris' on  the fire-swept area for  bodies  of victims proceeded haltingly- .     ...

E. S. Willard, the English actor,  told a story, lately, of the famous  Maybrick case which was so remarkable that those who heard it  have wondered that it has not been  generally known, ���-as it seemed to  suggest that Mrs. Maybrick, if she  is guilty of her husband's murder,  obtained the- plot from an unsuccessful play in London.   .  The exact year of the occurrences  related by, Mrv Willard has faded  from - the. memory./ of ^.'thqsel who  ^heardrthe story,"butf it,jmust^liave,  been between 1880���when Florence  Elizabeth Chandler, the "beautiful  Alabama girl, was married to James  Maybrick, the Liverpool '. cotton  buyer���and 1889���when/ the husband's death and the wife's /arrest  aroused an international interest  which, instead of diminishing, seems  to grow as time passes.  According to Mr. Willard, a play  which had been in rehearsal for a  long time in one of the London  theaters had reached an advanced  stage of preparation and a trial  matinee was decided on. No  tickets were sold, but invitations  were issued to critics, literary men  and prominent actors.  The performance resulted in the  condemnation of the play, and it  was never publicly, produced. In  the critical audience were a man  and woman who were afterward-  ���identified-as-Mrs-Maybrick-and-Mr.-  Brierly, whose name was associated  with hers iu the subsequent scandals.  When James Maybrick's brothers  charged his widow v. ith poisoning  him by administering arsenic in his  medicine after he had contracted a  cold by being caught in tho rain at  a race track, and the details were  published, thosj who had witnessed  the play found its plot reproduced  with startling fidelity as the development proceeded in the courts.  h\ tho London greenrooms the  belief is firmly held that Mrs. Maybrick, if she poisoned her husband,  found the suggestion of the manner  of doing it in the play which the  public has never seen.

Wilkrsuarre, Pennsylvania, October 30.���A heavy explosion of gas  occurred in a slope of No. 1 shaft  of the Kingston Coal Company at  Edwardsville todaj" in which three  men lost their lives and six others  were badly burned. Several of the  injured are in a precarious condition and it is doubtful if they .can  survive. The dead are Peter Lfso-  vige, aged 23, miner; Frank Mac-  Kalouski, nged 22, laborer; John  Dclane, aged 21, miner. The accident was due.to an employee who c  diverted tlie air course unwittingly"!  and allowed the gas to accumulate  in the place where the men"were at  work. Tho latter had been, warned  in time to vacate, but they did not  think they were in danger ', and  went on with their work.  Rounding Up Boers.

Whilst The  Tkidunis has no data on which to  make .an estimate of the amount of  gold purchased at these assay offices  and branch mints, it is safe to assert  that one-half of the gold dust aud  bullion--handled, at the assay offices  at Seattle and Helena and- the  branch mint at San Francisco is tlie  output of Canadian quartz nnd  placer mines.

Gallihor, the Liberal candidate:  Because the Laurier government  abolished the sweating system on  government contracts, it system  which flourished under the Conservative rule.  Because the Laurier government  has caused a fair wages clause to be  inserted in all government contracts; and" insists on the clause  being obeyed.  Because the Laurier government  by appointing a board of conciliation has taken a long- step in the  direction of preventing strikes and  lock-outs. The Conservatives during eighteen years of power neglected the matter altogether.  Because the Laurier government  has established a labor-bureau and  issued a Labor Gazette,- a step in  the interests of labor- which the  Conservatives never took though  often asked to.  Because the Laurier; government  has appointed'union men-to government positions which' affect' the-interests of organized'labor, as-for instance the-appointments of Messrs.'  Donoghue and E. P. Bremner.  Because the Laurier- government  has increased the- head tax on Chinese which the-Conservative government refused to do, and because  it is certain to increase it again  when returned to power.  Because the Laurier government  passed a bill providing that the  union label on manufactured goods  have the same-position as the-trade  mark. This bill was killed by the"  Conservative senate, and the fact  should be remembered by Conservative workingmen.

A like privilege is accorded iho Conservatives and the  Liberals.- * f  It was most* remarkable to note  at the beginning of the present  campaign with what energy both  Liberals and Conservatives'tried'to  impress the workingman  with  the  idea that their party was  his  best  friend.    They have evidently since  come to the conclusion that their  efforts -have   proved to  be a Hat  failure, so they have come out in  their  true  colors;   Mr. Galliher, in  his address in the opera house last  Friday  night,  undertook  to show  just how partial he and   his party  are to the cause of labor and with  what  love and  appreciation  they  stand ready to receive any proposition or effort on thepart of labor  to better  existing  conditions.   To  make this plain, he painted a dismal  picture of Mr. Foley standing alone  in parliament,   unable   to   receive  either a hearing or a recognition  from either   party.    Of course he  could not speak for the Conservative  party, but he spoke for the Liberals  as   one   having    authority.   This  argument was practically endorsed  by Mr. MaeNeill  when he assured  those present that there is and can  only be two parties- in  the house.  This is emphasized by.the writer to  The Tribune in  the Conservative  column when lie states that Chris  Foley,  elected  with either a Conservative or Liberal government in  power at Ottawa,'may possess the  oratory, of a Henry"'George' or the  tenacity of a John.Houston, but he  would  be absolutely ignored   and  find   great   difficulty in obtaining  the most- pressing appropriations  for the district.

THE HAT THAT KRUGER WORE  An Auction in London.  London, October 20.���Exactly  one year ago the Transvaal government rsent her. ultimatum to Eng-  Irtiul; by a-strange coincidence Mr.  Ki'iiger's hat was sold at Stevens'  miction rooms on King street, Co-  vent Garden, on the anniversary of  the historic event.  The room was crowded by enthusiastic relic  hunters, and the  passage leading thereto was filled with  breathless   people    who    had   left  their lunch half eaten  only to find  that.they  could   not  gain  admit-'  tan oo.   ,  ,,Ay''for  tho  hat, it did  duty for  -Mio ex-president's head on the end  of.a'long pole.    Its  intrinsic  value  Whs' nil, for it  would be hard  to  , "Aiil a more disreputable tile in all  London.  Everyone in the room wanted  to  talk at once when  they saw the  lint:  "Is it hall-marked?"  '���Was it ever cleaned?"  "Send  it to the next Karlscourt  exhibition."  "Pity we have not got the proper  head for it."  Finally, the auctioneer had to  call for silence while he talked.  ��� The hat was to be sold for a  charity, he said, and the owner had  refused ��100 for it in Pretoria on  purpose that it might be sold in  that room.  After one or two facetious remarks abont his owii halts as compared with Mr. Kruger's, Mr. Stevens; proceeded'to put the object of  interest up at auction.   '  The bidding started at ��5; a  clean-looking youth began it. Then  frofe-all parts of the room came of:  fers, made with feverish baste.  Six pounds! ��8!. ��10! ��20!  "Will no one bid more than ��20 for  this unique-article, the only-one of  its kind in London? Twenty-five  pounds! Thank you, Mr. Wobster,"  Mr. Webster -was really Peter  Keary, managing director of a  weekly paper, and he left tlie.rooms  with satisfaction expressed on every  feature of his face.  " I meant to have that hat," he  said, "and funnily enough I gave  exactly the sum I said I would  for it."     '  "What will 1 do with it ? Well,  f am going, to make a present of it.  1 dbri't'.'qVu('e know-.to whom* I shall.  give it, but possibly one:of< the subscribers of our paper will* have an  opportunity of wearing it on Christmas Day."  Mr. Keary omitted to say if he  intended to play Santa Claus and  r^^put-the^hatin-the^lucky-subscriber-s-  stocking.  Kruger's hat is thus not "a closed  incident."  A pipe, once the property of Mr.  Kruger, and bearing'.marks presumably made by the presidential  teeth, was sold at the same time  for ��8.     . -  .     fJOW   IT   WAS   TAKEN.  An English war. correspondent  writes the following graphic description of the siege of Pekin:  " On each side of the street, ,the  centre of which was a long streak  of green stagnant water, were the  .lap.soldiers, lying fully equipped  in marching order, with their rifles  lying beside them.  "We got along the line with  difficulty, and then, by stepping  over some that were asleep, got  into a-little mud-floored shop;where  we got two boards to lie on and  wait for the explosion which was to  announce the blowing up of the  wooden door of the gate, and which  would be thesignalfor the advance.  "We could hardly have been  .asleep a minute when a dull boom  roused us, followed by a heavy  rumble. This was followed by a  rattle of accoutrements as the men  rose to their feet; then a shrill order  was shouted, echoing down the  ranks. A pause, then another shrill  voice, and the little men were running past the door of the shop to  the accompaniment of the Japaueso  'One, two; one two,'  " The ��� One; two ' soon broke into  a cheer, and the pace grew quicker.  The huge imposing gate building  loomed up in front of us in the light  of a misty moon.   There was a ro! i-  Xs now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U.

Then   swish, swish,  and   a  perfect hail of bullets hissed down  the street.   The Japs were  going,  up either, side clo.se to the houses  and most of them on the left hand  side,. which   offered   the   greatest,  amount of protection.    As the  fire  intensified they hugged the corners,  darting forward from one to the  other   in  single  file.     There Avas  never for a moment the least sign  of hesitation or funk, but merely an  avoidance of useless sacrifice of life.  "J paused in the last refuge corner, in the midst of an intensely interesting and  exciting scene.    On  came the stream  of men unfalteringly.    When a particularly severe  gust of bullets would sweep down  the street all would lie back against  the closed shop fronts, packed like  sardines, and a ringing cheer would  break   forth,, to   be  taken  up  by  those along the street behind.  "At such close quarters the rifles  spat metalically with venemous  bitterness, and bits of plaster or  chips of masonry came down the  walls.  "The first gate was low and deep  and at right angles to the wall. On  passing through this we came on  the high main gateway. Here the  terrific force of the explosion was  evident. The huge wooden doors,  clamped with iron bars and bossed,  with knobs, was lying inwards,  aslant the entrance, wrenched from  its* hinges.  "It was like drawing aside the  curtain of a darkened theater. The  city of Pekin lay stretching, away  in the monlight behind���silent,  mystic, wonderful.

There was no: cheering or exultation then, but just a quiet ripple  of satisfied laughter, and smiles  passed around as one talked to  them. They had cheered in .the attack aad took the fighting with the  frolic welcome of schoolboys; but  now thatit was" over and well done  they-seemed to take it in a matter-  of-fact way���as if that was what  they had come for and had been  drilled for.  "There.seemed to be no suspicion  of. doubt in their minds that the  final result might have been otherwise ;.and after jostling along with  these cheery little men I doubt if it  would have been, even had the  walls been defended by better  troops supplied by better weapons.

"Comparing, them with other  troops under the same strain and  struggle' of battle, their feelings  find other'vent than in angry or  grumblous curses, and in every  little Jap's heart burns a vital  patriotism, and pride of his country.  'What have men got blood for but  to shed it?'are the words spelt by  their actions."  A letter from general Bennett,  under date of August .10th, from  Pekin, has just been received by  his brother, colonel O. W. Bennett  of Philadelphia, which briefly, yet  graphically, depicts the scenes just  prior to and directly after the' entrance to the most - sacred spot in  China.   It reade as follows:  "I came up through the Peiho  river last week. Hundreds of dead  bodies were floating down the  river. Cities were burning, joss  houses destroyed, as a result of this  most terrible war. The day before  yesterday I witnessed the great  parade of troops through the Forbidden City, never before trodden  by foreigners. The natives were  sullen andcowed, the attendants of  the palace never looking at the  troops, but with downcast eyes and  with right hand extended toward  the northern gate, were pointing  the way out. Their holy city destroyed, their women bayoneted by  Russian soldiers, they appeared to  have accepted their fate with stoicism and. to have lost faith in  everything.

Many  of them had small; deformed feet;  they could not run; in fact, could  hardlywalk, and all transportation  was wanted for the flying dowager  empress and the Manchu dynasty,  which is now in the mountains or  near there. Not one of them is  suing for peace or mercy, and no  one is left who is authorized to do  so. Mr. Conger, our minister, told  me that he hoped somethiug.in that  direction would be done in a few.  days.  " The great pagoda on top of the  southern gate of- the imperial city,  20 feet high,-is burning and crumbling to the ground; the wall and  gateway here is 100 feet thick and  solid stone. The Fourteenth Infantry boys, without scaling ladders, scaled the" wall, which is 30  feet high,. planted the- flag,- and,  driving the Chinese from the front,  entered the city in that way."

Aldermen Irvine (chairman), Hall  and Wilson ot the public works  committee decided to at once hold  a meeting, and they did hold one;  and they passed two resolutions,  with the approval of directors  Duncan and Peters of the tramway  company: The resolutions read as  follows: c  1. That it be recommended that  the council either enter into a contract with "the Nelson Tramway  Company, Limited, to furnish to  the city sufficient power to  operate fifty 2000 candle-power electric arc lights at the rate of .$00 per  light per annum for a term of two  years, the city to have the option  of continuing the contract for a  third year.  2. That it be recommended that  the council enter into a contract  with the Nelson Electric Tramway  Company, Limited, to supply and  install anlaalect.ric light system for  fifty 200|^candle-x)owei' are lights  for streetJjg)itiiig.,at a cost of not  exceeding $5000*'Hhe'')cost of supplying andin^taa^igrsueh electric light  system to ]Se':paid.^b'J the city at  the date of ythe^expiration of the  contract between"the eity and the  company.   -  This action of tho public works  committee would indicate that the  members of the committee were not  exactly fair when they asked, at  the regular session of the council,  for further time to consider the  street lighting question. If they  were not prepared to make a report  at 8:15 p.m., how could they be any  better prepared to make a recommendation at 8:15 p.m. ? There  were four proposals laid before the  committee, made by four different  companies, all of equal responsibility to carry; out their respective  proposals."'���"{' But, as it happened,  only, one of'.' the companies had  representatives present when the  committee rendered their decision.
