 ���E-  WBBm  assss  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  t3��b DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSOTST:  FRIDAY MORKlN^ NOVEMBER 2  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  STANLEY FALLS TO KEBFER LAKE  'Adventures - of  a   Party   of   Prospectors  Through   a  Country   Rich   in   Mineral. ��  CAME  OF ALL  KINDS   ALSO   FOUND   IN  ABUNDANCE  George If. Keefer of Stanley  .���'ulla, Fire Valley, who hau come  into the city to spend the winter,  wns one of.a party whicli made a  most interesting trip last summer.  In company with W. Hiuehlifl'eand  John Laritss of Robson, W. K. Richmond of Sandon and A. L. Marsh,  an old Kettle river prospector, he  .-"pent July, August, September and  ()ctober in the Pinnacle and Cherry  creek headwaters districts, both  north of what is usually termed  the Kettle river country. The out-  lit was the first to prospect for  quartz showings iu both sections,  and their report is of more than  ordinary interest for this reason.  The general characteristics of the  whole country proved to be big  strong leads of quartz carrying low  grade ore.  The party left Stanley Falls on  June 24th, following tho Kettle  river north to Keefer lake, which",  by the way, is not named after G.  IE. Keefer, then on to Marsh lake.  The latter body of water is fed by  streams from the watershed, and  ultimately discharges into the  Columbia.  On the other side of the watershed the streams flow into Cherry  creek aud gnally reach the Fraser.  Keefer and Marsh lakes were  thoroughly prospected with no results. The lake section has big  timber and fine townsites but no  mineral. The upper affluent of  Marsh lake is Poola creek and at  the head of this stream the party  -?.tuTi*bd eight claims asl'the.Satellite  group. The claims have a strong  galena lead carrying low grade silver and copper. The formation  here is diorite and schist.  On crossing to the Fraser river  .side of the watershed it was found  the formation changed to slate.  Cherry creek has five main feeders-  from the divide and on the extreme  western fork the party located another group of claims. A 2C-fobt  lead of quartz was stripped for  ���some distance aud fifLy feet of  drifting done on the lead in ore assaying from a trace to $14. in  gold.  On Cherry creek placer mining is  carried on now, and the creeks have  been worked steadily for 30 years.  A number of Chinamen and a few  white men are working the creek  claims. The latter are old Cariboo  miners and lead an easy life. They  work a few days each week and  spend the balance with rod and  gun. All have comfortable cabins  and little gardens. Mr. Keefer  states that colors can be found in  all the streams, and that at many  places ruby sand, always esteemed  by placer miners, is to be found in  liberal quantities. In panning out  ruby sand the party secured a pint  of rubies and garnets. Few of the  jewrels have any commercial value  except to watchmakers who could  utilize them. He believes that  many places could be found where  the ruby sand would yield good results, but the profitable spots are  so scattered that the country is not  likely to attain any importance on  the strength of its  placer claims.  The country through which the  party traveled was magnificent.  The valleys were filled with splendid timber, while the upper levels  were park-like with jack pines and  bunch grass. Along the cieeks  trails had to be cut to get the  horses through, but on the hills  traveling was easy. The whole  section teemed with game. The  party saw deer, cariboo, bear, goats  and grouse galore. They shot for  the pot only, but managed to get  away with five deer and a couple  of goats, not to mention birds. The  lakes were'' full of rainbow and  Beardsley trout. The outfit never  had difficulty in, securing all -the  game it could use within a mile or  two of camp, and several fine heads  were taken, but could not be preserved. The summer was unusually  wet this being the only drawback  to the trip.  The party reached Vernon about  the end of October when the snow  became deep and disbanded for the  winter. Some of them will go iu  again in the spring to work the  claims located.- A. L. Marsh is now  at Stanley Falls, where he is mayor,  council and citizens combined,  being the sole resident of the town-  site.  four celestials were concealed in a  hay ear and were discovered when  they were knocking off a board in  order to get out of the car. They  were arraigned before United  States commissioner Cameron and  committed to -jail.  Entertained Canucks.  LiVRRPOor., November 2.���The  lord mayor of Liverpool entertained  yesterday at luncheon 24 invited  Canadians from South Africa, who  are to start home on the Carthage-  nian.

ARMY  WILL BE DBOPPED TO THE OLD  LIMIT BY JULY.  Five Powers Are Agreed.  Washington, November J.���The  .alignment of the powers on the  iQerman-British agreement is now  .complete. Aside from Italy and  Austria, whose adherence to the  =iigreetnent-was-expected=owing=to=  their political relations with Germany, Japan is the only one of the  powers which has given unconditionally assent to the agreement. As  the matter now stands, five of the  powers are united in all the terms  of the agreement, viz., Great  Britain, Germany, Italy, Austria  and Japan; three of the powers���  United States, France and Russia���  accept the clauses relating to the  open door and the territorial integrity of China, but withhold  action on the third clause as to  future procedure in case any power  siezes territory. Neither the state  department nor the Russian embassy has received information of  Russia's answer, though the Associated Press in its London dispatches announced that the reply  had been received at the British  foreign office on October 30th, and  unreservedly accepted the first two  .clauses. In regard to the third  .clause, Russia referred the two contracting parties to tho Russian  fireular of April 15th, saying that  she 'wouldymodify her attitude  according to circumstances.

The  War Department at Washington Issues  a Statement as. to-the  .. . . .'  -..Decrease   New York, November 2.���The  Republican national committee  issued a statement concerning tho  United States army today which  says:  "Reports received from the war  department at Washington by the  Republican national committee  gives news of the gradual reduction  of the forces of occupation in the  army. General Davis, commanding  the army in Porto Rico, recommends that the troops on that  island be withdrawn almost entirely.  "Orders have been issued for the  reduction of the troops in China,  aiuLplans ju ade=foi*=thei r-fi naUwi th-=  drawal. It is hoped that when the  election is over the situation will  improve sufficiently in the Philippines to warrant a" materia] reduction of the force there.  "Secretary Root recently called  attention to the fact that iu the  fall of 1898,.when president McKinley recommended the retention of  100,000 men in the army, he was  arguing for a decrease and not an  increase, for then there were 272,000  men in service. The war with  Spain was not ended, for the peace  treaty had not been ratified. In  the meantime people should remember that unless there is further  legislation on the subject, the army  will drop back to its former limit  of 27,500 men next.

POISON   EVIDENTLY   USED  ������'���'���  NEW YORK ATTORNEY SUSPECTED  OF ATROCIOUS CRIME. '.'  The Sudden Taking Off of Millionaire  Rice Is Being Investigated  In Gotham.  Nrw York, November 1.���The  death of the wealthy William  Marsh Rice at his MJi-.1:**on avenue  apartments on - September 23rd;  the attempt of his Ne\y York attorney, Albert T. Patrick, to cash  cheeks for large amounts which  purported to be signed by the millionaire ; the refusal of tho bank to  cash the checks drawn on it and the  discovery by the bank officials that  Rice was lying dead at" the time  the checks were presented; the  subsequent claim by' Patrick that  Mr. Rice had made him by (will the  trustee of his estate which amounts  to any where .-from $3,0.00,000 ' to  $8,000,000; the' charge of'forgery  both as regards the.checks and the  will placed against Patrick and Mr.  Rice's valet, Charles P. Jones ; the  arrest of Patrick and Jones and  their lodgment in jail by the developments of today promises'" to  become the most celebrated of the  many celebrated crimes which the  courts of this city have been called  on to investigate." The first incident which led up to today's climax was the fact. disclosed yesterday that. Jones had -been taken  to the district attorney's office  and the subsequent rumor that he  had made a.. confession .to. the  authorities. Before the. public had  time to learnof the report of a confession came., the' news that during the silent hours oi the night  Jones had in.his cell in the'-'Tombs  . attempted.' - suicide by.' cutting * his  throat witlva-'psnkiiifts;,.-given -Kim,  he says, by attorney - Patrick, also  confined in the Tombs.  That portion of the confession  which has to do with the last moments of Mr. Rice is. the following  given out by the authorities as coming from Jones: "Rice said, 'I am  very nervous, Mr. Patrick, I wish  you would not trouble me. Please  go away.',  "Patrick replied: 'I have some  salts here, Mr. Rice, that will cure  your nervousness.'  "He produced a bottle and uncorked it. The contents smelled to  me like some very strong liniment.  Then Patrick said to.me: 'Get me  a towel and a sponge.' . I got him  both. Then Patrick said : .'Jones,  you have to leave' I left. As 1  was leaving, Patrick said : 'I'll remain here until Mr.. Rice gets to  sleep.' He closed tlie door behind  imer-=Pstoodnn=th'e=ahall=for=a==few=  minutes and soon I heard Mr. Rice  laugh. I thought this was queer,  so I pushed open the door. I saw  Mr. Rice lying on his back in bed.  The towel I had given Patrick was  wrapped around the sponge in a  cone shape. This cone was lying  directly over Mr. Rice's eyes .and  nose. Patrick was pressing it  down with his right hand. Patrick  did not see me and of course Mr.  Rice could not. After seeing what  I had seen I went and lay on my  bed. Mr. Rice grew very sick.  Patrick said to me: 'Go get a  doctor;"''I went for one. He pronounced Mr. Rice dead."  Attorney Patrick denies having  furnished Jones the penknife, and  he also denies the statement in the  confession.  Jones, after his suicidal attempt,  was taken to Bellevue hospital, hastily summoned physicians having  just been in time to save him from  death through loss of blood. At 8  o'clock tonight the hospital surgeon  said he was slightly better, and the'  chances are that in a few days he  will again be placed in  the Tombs.  The coroner's investigation into  the death of millionaire Rice, which  was to have been held today, and  which had previously been adjourned to await the report of the  chemist who had examined portions  of the remains for traces of poison,  was again adjourned because of the  new developments iu the case.

Seventy^Four   Natives   Bayonted   Because  a German  Patrolman  ^ Had- Been Killed. ���  BfiRMN, November 1.���Considerable impatience at the meagreness  of the news from China is finding  expression here. Letters from privates iu China begin to find their  way into the social Democratic  papers showing that the German  troops give no quarter. The Bremen Buerger Zeitung publishes a  letter from a soldier in Pekin, who  said he witnessed the following  scene : "Sixty-eight captives, some  of them not yet adults, were tied  together by their pigtails, beaten  bloody by tlie Germans, compelled  to dig their own graves and then  shot en mass."  The Halberstader Volks Zeitung  prints a communication from Pekin,  in which the   writer says:     "No  prisoners are, takeiiT All are shot,  or preferably sabred to save ammunition. On Sunday afternoon  we had to bayonet 71 prisoners.  They had killed four of our patrolmen. An entire battalion pursued  them and captured 74 alive. It was  cruel.    It was indescribable."  Threw the Frenchmen Out.  Tien-Tsin, November 1.���Via  Shang-Hai.���Yesterday at Yeng-  Tsun a party of French officers occupied a coach of a special train assigned to carry the 14th United  States infantry to Tong-Ku and declined to leave when requested to  do so. Colonel Daggett of the 14th  called the American guard and  forcibly ejected the officers. The  French are greatly incensed over  the incident and demand an apology.  Wolseley's Declares Himself.

MoNTl'EAr,, November 1.���The  big fire boat AV. S. Grattau, built  for the city of Buffalo, passed  through Montreal today en route  from Elizabethport, New Jersey, to  that city.   Betting in Toronto.  Toronto, November 1.���The betting in this city on the Dominion  elections is 5 to 3 that the Laurier  administration will be sustained.  Money is being freely shaken in the  opposition faces, with heavy odds,  but no takers are to be found.  A strike of free milling ore the  equal   of   which has seldom been  heard of in this district is reported  from the "Republic, claim between  Forty-nine and Eagle creeks owned  by Joseph Duhamel   and Arthur  Powers.    Duhamel is in the city today and states that for the last  two months he has been working  on a free milling reef  thirty-five  feet wide carrying average values  of $27 clean across.    The figures  are almost staggering, for such a  property means a. fortune for the  fortunate   owners.     Joe   Duhamel  lias a first class reputation for veracity, how-ever, and furthermore he  invites any person   who cares to  verify   the   figures   to   visit   the  property and investigate the statement in person.   The  Republic is  seven miles out.on the government  trail, and its location is indicated  by a signboard so that the skeptical  may- convince themselves with comparatively little trouble and outlay  of   time.     The   only   remarkable  feature of the strike is the great  width    of   the   lead. .   Everyone  familiar with   the district knows  that   the   richest"   float   in    the  country   comes from this, vicinity  prospectors and companies having  spent much time and   many   dollars in endeavoring to locate the  mother lode.   The Duncan Mines,!  Limited, is said, to .have expended  $50,000 on its Nevada group, and  on  the principal claim owned by!  this corporation wgreat   masses, of  float'hav;e'beon'*-found,from'' which'  the original owners used to pan $.">  to $7 a day when water was available.   Paddy Miles has found float  weighing   hundreds of pounds  on  the Paradise, which assayed away  up in the hundreds of dollars and  Joe Duhamel contributed a 20-pound  chunk of float to the mineral  exhibit at Spokane,  specimens  from  which assayed $2000.    In view of  this it was only natural  that the  lead should be discovered eventually.    What baffled the prospectors  was the twenty feet of wash which  covered   the   entire   section,   and  made investigation purely a matter  of chance.  Joe Duhamel staked the Republic  five years ago and has worked on it  every season since." Two months  ago he crosscut what is claimed to  be the long looked for lead, finding  it   to   be   porphyry, decomposecL  quartz alternating with hard  and gradually consolidating into  hard quarts' with depth. The  walls are well defined and an  average assay across the lead gives  returns of $27. Under the wash  the vein matter was badly decomposed, one shot taking out no less  than sixteen barrowsful. The work  on the claim consists of one open  cut 300 feet long, 200 feet of crosscuts at other points and two tunnels, one 20 feet and the other 55  feet. There is a comfortable cabin,  and four men will work on the  claim all winter. The owners intend at the present time to put in a  small stamp mill next spring if  water can be obtained to operate  the battory. The latter is doubtful, as the Duncan Mines have corralled about all the water in the  vicinity.  The Republic lead quarters, up  hill in a westerly direction. If it  continues in place, as seems probable in view of the well-defined  contact, this would take the lead  across the Majestic, owned by John  Miles, the Free Gold, owned by  Miles and Mickey Monahan, the  corner of the.Royal Canadian and  through the Nevada, the latter belonging to the Duncan Mines.  Below the Republic are the Coon,  Redlaudsanda couple of otherelaims  owned by Henry Sinkan. About  $2000 has been spent on the group  and a 12-foot lead, said to average  over $10, has been uncovered. It  is understood that the owners of  this and adjoining claims "will  ground-sluice the whole hillside iu  the spring with a view to carrying  away the heavy wash which has  impeded prospecting up to the  present time.  Below  the  Nevada property is  the St. Mary's group, while adjoining the Duncan Mines ground is the  Maple Leaf, a crown granted claim-  owned by the Maple Leaf Gold Mining Company,   of    whice   senator  Byrnes of San Francisco is president.   This company has been resting quietly on its oars awaiting the,  result of "work on adjoining properties, but it is  reported now that  they will start work at an early,  date.  Mining Records.

The eagerness with which men,  who are wanting in qualification,  try  to   grasp  the  nomination   for  parliament, is frequently due,to the  fact that, whether theyare elected  or not, the ramlidatn ofthe winning  party controls the patronage of the  constituency.    In ridings where the  odds are  so  great as  to  frighten  away those who are   tempted  into  public life'by an honorable ambition  or.a desire to serve  the country,  there   is   no   difficulty  in  finding  party standard bearers among  the  class who are in  politics  for  what  there is in it for them.     AVe  need  not dwell on  the viciousness  of a  system which gives men  who have  been   rejected   by  the   electors  a  power and-influence in  their constituencies greater than is possessed  by those who have been chosen by  the    people    to    represent   then,.  Candidates of.the type we speak of  consider it their lirst duty to provide  for themselves,' and  their next to  provide for their friends aud followers, who in most cases are the  riff-raffof the party machine.    The  result is that many persons who  are neither' fitted by character nor'  ability to fill' responsible positions  creep into and disarrange the public service.. It is a matter for profound gratification to' the electors  of Toronto- that' the" candidates of  both parties in the city constituencies are men of .high character,  none of whom is likely to misuse  such   an] influence   should    it   be'  thrown into" his'hands. Tne chances  of the Liberal-candidates are' very  slight, but their standing in the  community and'the reputation they  bear   give   us the assurance that'  they are not in the field in order'  that they may secure fat offices in  case of.the return��� of, the Laurier  government.   Moreover, we believe  that in such a contingency they  could be' relied on to take fitness  into account in recommending appointments.  WRITTEN   BY    CONSERVATIVES.  mittee, and certainly the $!>000,  which is annually dumped into the  Duncan river, ostensibly to clear it  of snags, might be laid out to better  advantage elsewhere. The Liberal  'government' does not know the  Heeds of the far west and has not  considered it worth Avhile to Jind  out -what thoy really are.  Tlie fact thnt the labor organization, in' Rossland is running a cooperative store, .and that successfully, is in itself good evidence that  the Laboring clement will extend  its operations to other towns; as  stated in this column on Tuesday.  Nobody blames them for this, but  the laborer who wrote the special  appeal Lo tlie merchants of Nelson  made a bad break, for it may be  stated beyond contradiction that,  given a co-operative store in this  city, precious little labor money  wiil find its way into the Baker  street tills; and right' here we have  a goodly illustration of how Labor  knows how to take care of itself as  well as Capital.'

Falls Power Company is authority  for the statement that a by-law  will be submitted to the people of  Nelson at the next eity election  providing for the installation- of a  street lighting system. It is a  pretty come to pass when a city  like Nelson cannot devise ways and  means to light the streets without  lirst seeming the consent of the  Bonnington Falls Power Company.  One   hl'.ndkkd   thousand   dollars or more will be spent  in carrying Brandon.    Sifton has money  to spend  that came easy, and the  \inen  who made  it are all on the  ground spending  it.     Hugh John  . will have all the money  that  the  ��� Conservatives can make and scrape  that can be spared from the east,  and he also has men on the ground  willing to spend it.   That is how  elections  are   conducted   in    this  ' Canfida of ours ; a country in whicli  bribery and corruption is said to be  ��� an unknown quantity in  conducting elections.  The Liberals are now adopting,  the   idol plan of* campaign���they  are abandoning public display of  their feeble principles in favor of  hero worship in the' person of sir  Wilfrid Laurier.   A Baptist minister in Toronto went recently so  far as to say that the only thing he  had really to be thankful for on  Thanksgiving-dayrAvasthat we had-  sir Wilfrid with us in the flesh.  The majority of the people of Canada do not share with the Liberal  party that eagerness to sit at the  feet of the present premier.   What  they want is to know what that  party has.to say about unredeemed  pledges and to listen to the Conservative side of   the   question   and  judge accordingly.    Of course  few  doubt tho issue of November 7th.  However lofty sir Wilfrid may appear to his friends  he will  nevertheless be dethroned and  relegated  to the cold shades of opposition for  which many think he is  eminently  fitted.    Chris Foley apologizes  for  being  an uneducated  man, but no  doubt  entertain."*   the   idea   that   mental  accomplishments cut no figure in  politics.   Surely in the light of experience   it   is   wiser  to   send   to  Ottawa a man who can not only express his views in   an  intelligent  manner, but has also the advantage  of a liberal education, followed by  a study of the' effects of political-  issues in wider circles than Canada  affords.    "Whether or no the electors vote for ��� Conservative or  Liberal, all thinking-persons will agree  that education in a candidate is a  factor to be "seriously' considered  and intelligently acted upon.

One  day in May he paid us a visit and  placed a very large order, going, in  I'sict, to tho extreme limit of his  credit. He explained its unusual  M'/is by saying that ho was about to  enlarge his establishment, that he  had allowed his stock to run down  preparatory to making a big splurge  to wipe out a rival establishment,  and, iu short, told us such a pleasant  story that 1 at once approved the  account.  "That afternoon a- young   man  from a furnishing store dropped in  and asked whether captain ,  mentioning the merchant's name,  had left the city. 'I am sorry,' he  remarked, when he learned that he  had gone. 'Tlie captain placed an  order with us for a couple of suits  of extra heavy underwear, and was  anxious to have them delivered  next week. I wanted to tell him  that we'd have to send north for  the goods,' he added,'and they may  be delayed.' That incident set mo  thinking. There might be a thousand perfectly natural and innocent explanations of the order, yet  it certainly carried the inference  that our friend was contemplating  an .early-'trip ton cooler- climate;*  aiujc*---well, -t liad ft .strong- pre-  . monition, or whatever you choose  " to call it, that something wrong  lurked in the background.  "The more I thought.about it the  more uneasy I became. It seemed  absurd to turn down an old friend  and lose a handsome sale simply because he ordered some heavy underwear, and 1 knew I was risking  severe censure, if not my situation  as well; but before night I countermanded his purchases aud notified  him by wire that wo had decided  to trim our'Credit.lines for the summer, and Ayere sorry- we could' not'  oblige him. lie sent back a furious  letter aud placed his order with an  opposition firm, who accepted him  gladly.  "My bosses looked pretty black  when they heardthe, story, but  they changed their expression early  in June, when the worthy captain  suddenly disappeared, after turning,  every thingJie-hadinto^cash.^Justi  as I anticipated, he headed for. a  cooler clime.

This will certainly be news to many  mining men of this district. It is a  fact well known to mining men  that ores containing as low as 3 per  cent copper are now being treated,  aud at a good, fair profit, too.  When ores carry less than 3 per  cent copper, it would be a crim'e  against the creator to take it out of  the ground, on account of the  marring effect it would have on Lhe  contour of this fair earth. J'fc costs  the large smelting plants less than  ���10 cents a ton to concentrate the  ores in Butte, and less than $5 per  ton to smelt these concentrates.  There is no likelihood of tho cost  being reduced for many years to  come.

Louisvn.u", November 1.���The  Louisville Evening Post today prints  an affidavit of Finley Anderson, the  telegraph operator upon whose testimony Caleb Powers was convicted  of complicity in the murder of governor Coebel, in winch Anderson  swears his story told on the stand  at Georgetown was perjured.  After -telling of a conversation  with attorney Campbell' at Cincinnati in connection with the Coebel  case, tlie affidavit continues:  "1 remained iu Cincinnati after  this conversation with Mr. Campbell, and some time after that Arthur Goebel, in his store up stairs  on the fourth floor, where'I"had  gone at ,his request, asked me if  Powers had not in my presence at  Barbourville in January said to me  in substance these words, referring  to William Goebel: 'They say he  wears a coat .of mail, but it won't  do him any good,' or something  similar to that.  "I told Arthur Goebel that Powers had never said anything of the  sort in my presence to the best of  ray knowledge. He told me to  think and-see if I could not remember. I could not remember such a  remark and I know that Powers  never did make such a remark or  anything resembling it in my presence, but being urged by Arthur  Goebel, I finally concluded to state  that he did make such a statement  and so swore upon the trial, which  testimony was false.  -"Before making my statement to  Campbell, Wharton Golden told me  to make it as strong as possible, as  they (referring to Campbell and  Goebel) would take care of me and'  ISrotectTme.        ~~  "I desire now to say that I never  had but one conversation -with  Caleb Powers, and that was in relation to my going up to Frankfort  with tho men on tho 25th of  January and at no place was-the  name of William Goebel mentioned  or referred to in any way or in any  connection by Caleb Powers.  !'I desire furthermore to state  that either upon the occasion of the  first conversation with'Campbell or  the day after I received from him  $10 in cash and since that conversation I have received from him,  both before and after I was a witness at Georgetown in the Powers  case, various sums of money, and I  have since such conversation "with  Campbell and Arthur Goebel received from Arthur Goebel various  sums, aggregating about $300, and  upon one occasion $10 from Justus  Goebel.  "The last sum I received was on  Tuesday, October 23rd, 1900, which  was $;���) given to me by colonel  Campbell at his office in Cincinnati.  Just prior to giving me this $!>  Campbell had telephoned to Arthur  Goebel to come to his office, which  Goehel did, and when he arrived-at  Campbell's office he went into a  private office with Campbell and  Campbell came out and' handed me  $5."  Anderson further gives alleged  ���dates and details and concludes his  affidavit thus:  "I believe my testimony in the  trial of Caleb Powers aided in his  conviction, and I am unwilling  longer to suffer in conscience by the  thought that the falsity of my  statements have aided in convicting Caleb Powers."
