 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  TUESDAY MORNING NOVEMBER 13  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  ir  PROPERTIES ON WHISKY CHEEK  Ally Are as Good as the  Name Implies and None Are  Below   Proof.  THE MOST INTERESTING  CLAIM  IS  THE  ARLINGTON  Over   tlie   divide    from    which  (���'.n'ty-nine, Angle, Bird and Sandy  c f-eks How into tlie Kootenay river  i-; 11. groat section of country rich in  minerals.   It is drained by several  (���reek's  whicli  lead into the  north  fork of Salmon  river and is- undoubtedly one of the coming mining centers of the Kootenays.   One  of the principal streams is Whiskey  creek, and  during  the  season now  closing   the   properties    along   its  banks have made marked advances  toward the producing basis.   The  creek rises across the divide from  the source of Bird creek  and  flows  for 15  miles  to  its  mouth on the  north fork of  the Salmon river at  Sal mo, and the country was staked  in 1890, following the  discovery of  the Second' Relief -and Arlington  miues.     Originally   most   of    the  ground ,was   taken  up, but since  chen many locations have lapsed.  The. mineral   is  usually  found   in  quart/, carrying gold, with iron and  some galena  in  places.    Tree milling ore is found, but most of the  claims promise to be profitable concentrating propositions.  The greatest interest on Whisky  creek centers about the Arlington  property, 3A- miles up the creek  from Erie. This group was staked  in '90 by William Boyd and Henry  Jfulbert. The following year it  was bonded to Finch & Campbell of  Spokane, who worked . it for- a  couple of months. When their op-  Lion expired an extension was applied for, but refused, the property  ��� reverting, to the owners;--Themthe  Arlington was bonded to the Hustings" & B. C. Exploration Syndicate  Ltd., who placed the late Morris  Much in charge. This bond was  tak^en^up, and the mine is being  " worked on a layge scale. It is estimated that the present owners have  expended" not less than $100,000,  and it is evidently- their intention  to make it a mine in every sense of  the word. Between 50 and 00 men  were employed on the property this  summer, and extensive improvements were made outside of the development work. A bunkhouse to  accommodate 40 men, a two-story  l)oaiJding house 35 by 70 feet, a  blacksmith shop 25 by. 30 feet, an  oflico 20 by 25 feet, and other  smaller buildings were erected.  Tlie company had intended to  (erect a concentrator this fall and  1500 cords of wood were cut and  .stacked in anticipation of the mill  _b"eing"in~operatioirthis"wiuter. No-  steps have been taken as yet, and  the presumption is that building  operations have been postponed to  hater in the winter or spring. The  company divulges no information  regarding their workings, but it is  known that several trial shipments  to Nelson and Northport during the  summer realized $35 to $40 per ton.  With this property iu full swing  the section will have one of the  best advertisements available.  The Keystone claim, located two  miles from the Arlington road, was  bonded recently to L. C. Davenport  of Spokane by the owners, C. C.  Ladd and John Shuttleworth, the  consideration, it is said, being $20,-  000. A three-foot vein was located  on the surface, and a 35-foot shaft  on the ledge demonstrated that the  ore widened out to six feet at that  depth. Assays from the claim  range from $10 to $150, $30 being  probably, a reasonable average.  The Keystone.' lies between the  Delaware and Cable claims, owned  respectively by William Barbour  and John Shuttleworth, and the  facts relating to the history of the  Delaware and Cable, together with  the Ten Brock, also owned by John  Shuttleworth, have a flavor of  romance such as is often met with  in fiction dealing with mining districts. Barbour staked the Delaware on June 20th, 18.90, just the  day before the Arlington was located and very shortly after  Shuttleworth staked his -claims.  Both men worked year after year,  but failed to find mineral. So  fruitless weretheir efforts that last  year they were on the point of  throwing up the sponge and allow  ing the claims to lapse. At this  time Ladd staked the Keystone between the other claims and had not  woked long before he discovered  the vein within 250 feet of the Delaware's sidelines aud heading directly  for that claim. Barbour and Shuttleworth are still willing to'part  with their properties, but the. consideration has risen somewhat from  the figure they would have accepted  a year ago. The three claims are  now being presented to Spokane  capitalists. A short time since an  excellent wagon road was built to  connect the Keystone with the  Arlington road. The grade averages 10 per cent, and,the road has  been accepted by W. A. McLean,  superintendent of roads and trails  for the Nelson riding. William  Barbour was foreman on the work.  At the headwaters of Whisky  .creek is the Second Relief group of  which' comparatively little is known  beyond the report that ifc -is thebig-  gest proposition ou the creek. It is  owned by Finch <fc Campbell of  Spokane, who have done nothing  on the property for two years.  On Brooklyn mountain near the  Keystone is a group of three claims,  about the only .straight free milling  proposition in the section, owned  by Andrew Sosted. There are two  ledges on the claims from which the  last nine assays have ranged from  $10 to $50 with an average of $20.-  Sosted - has 100 feet of tunnelling  on the vein and" the property is  looking well. - -    .  The Armstrong group, two miles  from Erie and a mile from the Nelson & Fort Sheppard track, is  owned by William Feeney aud two  partners, and is now under bond to  an English.company which is building a .'bunkhouse and boarding  house this fall, and will probably  work a crew all winter. The proposition is silver and gold, assays  of 200 ounces of silver having been  had.  Guyette and Quinlan have a  group of claims near Craigtown  which run high in copper. They  are said to have refused an offer to  bond the property at $50,000. The  partners are not working on the  claims at the present time.  A number of other claims are  held along the creek by prospectors  who confine their work to annual  assessments. As the section becomes opened up many of these  will undoubtedly prove .as valuable  as any of the propositions already  developed. The conditions are  favorable toward economical de-  velopraenton-Whisky_creek-~~"The-  stream affords splendid water power  and the side hills are heavily timbered.         To Try Six Negro Soldiers.  Er. Paso, Texas, November 12.���  A special venire of 300 men has  been summoned from which to  select a "jury to try six negro soldiers of the Twenty-fifth infantry,  accused of raiding the city police  station here last winter and murdering policeman Newton Stewart.  The incident attracted widespread  attentioji at the time. The soldiers  stole guns and axes.at Fort Bliss  and went to the city jail to liberate  one of their comrades. Officer  Stewart, after parleying with them,  opened fire and killed, a corporal.  The soldiers fired many shots into  the building and killed Stewart.  Their alleged leader, sergeant John  Kipper, lias been tried, found guilty  of murder and sentenced to life im-  prisonmeut.  Starving Indians.  Tacoma, Wash., November 12.���  Mrs. James W.Smith, just returned  from Cook's inlet, Alaska, says that  fully half of the thousand Indians  in that section, comprising five  tribes, are slowly dying of starvation. The influx of white prospectors has resulted in the killing of  much game, with the result that  the Indians are deprived of flesh for  food, and furs for clothing. They  dried salmon last summer, but not  enough to go around, and winter  finds 400 to 000 of them without  food enough to last until December.  Mrs. Smith, who is a wealthy miner's wife, divided her stock of provisions with the destitute Indians,  and now appeals for further aid.  Most of these Indians belong to the  Russian chnrch, but it is powerless  to help them. Unless provisions  are sent in by steamer at once she  says hundreds will die While living at Gray's harbor eight years  ago Mrs. Smith, then Mrs. Martha  White, swam into the surf and rescued three shipwrecked sailors from  drowning, for which congress voted  her a medal.  Steamer Went Ashore.  London, November 12.���Tho Wilson line steamer Angelo, bound  from Christiania, Norway, for Hull,  is ashore near Withersea on the  coast of Yorkshire. The Angelo  carried 100 Norwegian immigrants  for the United States. She went  aground Sunday night. There was  considerable excitement on board,  but the sea was calm and the shore  sandy. The captain declined assistance, and when the tide receded all  waded ashore, the men carrying  the women and children. The Angelo, which is in a precarious condition, is jettisoning her cargo.  Death of Noted Inventor.  New York, November 12.���  Frank Jarvis Patten, inventor of  the multiplex telegraph .system,  which was purchased by the Western Union Telegraph Company, and  of the groscope used on ocean vessels for giving the position of the  vessel in mid-ocean, died suddenly  in his rooms at Thirty-second street  tonight. ���-' ���'  Crooked Naval Officers.

'  DIAMONDS   WORN   BY   THE   UNHAPPY EMPRESS.  The Jewels Said to Be Worth $75,000  Were Taken by New York Police  From Two Mexicans.  New York, November 12.���Two  Mexicans who gave their names as  Velino M. Preza and Alejandro A.  Maroucci were arrested here today,  charged with smuggling into this"  country part of the famous jewels  at one time worn by Carlotta, the  widow of emperor Maximilian of  Mexico. The jewels in the men's  possession are said to be worth  $75,000.  It was learned that .among the  papers whicli Preuza had on him  when he was arrested was a bill of  sale for the diamonds for $20,000.  It is said that one of the men told  the officials  that the stones wero  given to them to sell by a woman.  This woman is said to be Prenza's  fiancee. The jewels were in a red  leather case. In the case was a  piece of paper on which was written iu English: "Diamond necklace  is from Maximilian's crown; 1800."  Collector Bid well refused to talk  of the seizure, but it was learned  that the custom house received a  tip from an informer that the gems  were in this country. The case is  now in the hands of the United  States district attorney. The gems  will be'appraised, and on the  amount of valuation the charge  will be based. The informer will  receive a certain amount up to 50  per cent of the net revenue to the  government, as may be decided  upon by the secretary of the  treasury.      -.; ' "     -     ��� ���' -  Kick From an English Trust.

Morine, Blandford and  Chaplain (Reidites)'..have defeated  Messrs. Cowan, --Hatchings .and  Martin, Liberals, by an average  majority of 580 as against 1680 at  the previous election. The Liberals  are jubilant over this reaction, because Mr. Reid had exerted every  influence to secure < the election of  Mr. Morine. Mr. Reid's son canvassed the district with Mr. Morine  and the contractors' steamers and  trains were used to help him. The  Liberals criticize' the fact that Mr.  Morine is Mr. Reid's general* counsel, Mr. Blandford ��� his "shipmaster  and Mr. Chaplain his outfitter. They  contend that this 4s not a seemly  situation for members., of. the  legislature. '     , .--  In St. George'sV^istrict, Mr.-How-  ly, Liberal, won the seat byTa majority of 333.

The report of the trial shipment  from the Hampton group in the  Slocan division forwarded to the  Trail smelter last week has been  received by N. F. McNaught of Silverton, who acquired the property  last spring. The information is  eminently gratifying on the whole,  but, unfortunately, did not give the  details as fully as was desired.  This arose through an error at the  mine whereby the sacks containing  the clean ore from the paystreak  were mixed with those containing  the ledgo matter forwarded with a  view"to_a"scertainin"g".iust^h"ow���val"-"  uable this mineralized ledge matter  would prove. The first lot was 78  sacks with a net weight of 4905  tons. This averaged (507 ounces of  silver. Tne second lot Avas 00 sacks,  net weight 4352 pounds, and as-  saved 209 ounces. Through tho  error at the mine a few sacks of  low grade ore was mixed with the  high grade lot and vice versa, the  result being to lower the assay on  the clean ore, which Mr. McNaught  estimates would,run about 710  ounces. The net proceeds of the  shipment, which aggregated a little  over four and a half tons, was  $1133.80, certainly a very handsome  figvre.   Wagon Road Almost Completed.  Henry Roy, manager of the London Consolidated and Richelieu  properties, returned yesterday  from Crawford creek. The thirty  head of cattle brought in from Port  Hill, Idaho, were safely delivered  at the mine and Dr. Armstrong,  V. S., will visit the property today  to inspect the animals. The wagon  road on Crawford creek is completed except for several culverts  now being constructed. About 40  miners are employed between the  Silver Hill and Richelieu mines .and  the company's program for tlie  winter's work is well under way.  En Route to Manila.  Columbus, Ohio, November 12.���  Detachments of the 10th, 17th, 19th  and 23rd infantry regiments and  the Fourth cavaliy, 847 men in all,  left Columbus barracks for Manila  today via New York. They will  sail on the transport Kilpatrick.  The'' Result's   Were   "Gratifying,' but-  Through an Error Reports Not  ;ia Detailed an Desired.  "A report is current that a deal  is pending by which the Arlington,  Speculator, and   Mabou groups of  mineral claims in the Slocan mining  division will be consolidated and  placed on the London market at a  capitalization  of   $5,000,000," said  Robert    I.    Kirkwood,     a      well  known   mining man from   Sloean  City yesterday.    "The three groups  comprise   .a number   of   the most  promising claims in the Slocan and  every one who knows  the history  of  the   camp is aware   that this  means something.   The Arlington  is now on a producing basis.    From  00  to  80  tons  are shipped-weekly  now aud the net returns  are $1000  a car.    Ore chutes are being built  at the mine and at Slocan City to  facilitate the handling of ore,' and  it is likely the output will be largely  increased. On the Speculator group  a good sized crew is employed and  .the property is looking particularly  1 well.   They have two parallel veins  on the group and are - drifting' on  both.    One ledge is 25 to 30 feet in  width with a paystreak of two feet  while the ledge for 15 feet around  the "clean ore is heavily mineralized.  In the paystreak the ore runs 80 to  800 ounces of silver with high average, while the balance of the mineralized ledge matter runs from 25 to  300 ounces.    The Mabau group was  bonded recently but no work has  been done by the bond  holders as  yet.   We expect to-see operations  commence   at anytime.    Knowing  as   we   do   that the veins in (the  Slocan camp are permanent aud the  values increasewith depth.' tlie-siim  at which these three groups  are to  be capitalized does not seem to be  as  large as  would  appear at first  sight."  Referring to other  properties in  the Slocan City section, Mr.  Kirk-  wood says :   "A small crew is work-;;?,  ing on the Neepawa group recently-,1; -  bonded to the Warner Miller syndi-*  cate.   The company has let a* eon-'i  tract for 300 feet of drifting on they  vein and have a small force' of, men'^  at   work   on   their   own  account;^  From'what we know of,,thisi pro*i$,  perty it i9  the general iinpressioiiV  that   the   Neepawa   will   soon bey  added   to   the   list    of   extensive,'  Slocan producers.    In  Slocan "City-  it is stated that the second pay-;  ment of $4000 has  been  made on>-?  the Iron Horse   group   bonded a'  short time since  to Mark Manley'^  and other parties.    The Iron Horsey  is regarded as a first-class proposi- ��  tion and the fact that the secpndy  payment has been forthcoming ;is^|  evidence, of course, that* the  bond-i^  holders are well satisfied with theirs^  bargain.

With reports of new strikes in  old mines, steady shipments from  new mines, and increased development work in new districts, is it not  a trifle inconsistent for the province  to pay officials in its mining depart-  , ment who, are unwilling to either  see or report anything that is encouraging in tho mining industry  anywhere in the province ?  The   greatest   industrial   enterprise  at  Nelson  is  the Hall Mines  smelter.    It employs about 100 men  in working  up  raw material.    The  raw material comes from different  sections of Kootenay and Yale districts.   The iron ore   used   comes  from' a mine near Kamloops, coal  and coke from mines and  ovens at  Fernie, tlio lime rook from qnariies  on Kootenay lake, and  the silver-  lead ore from East Kootenay and  Slocan mines.   Nelson district furnishes   mill    concentrates    which  carry   gold.    These'raw-materials,  are smelted   tind   the   product   is  shipped east in the  shape of base  bullion.    This is an industry that  benefits   Nelson   directly   through  the men employed at the smelter,  and one that benefits hundreds, indirectly in  other portions  of the  province  through   employment in  mining   coal and making coke, in  quarrying   lime   rock and mining  Iron ore, for were the smelter not  A political campaign   generally  .-.hows up a newspaper  in   its  true  colors.    If it is fair, the  newspaper  will always strive to state; facts, and  it   will   not,   under    any   circumstances, impugn the honesty or the  motives of individuals  who are not  candidates for office, and  who are  simply exercising one of'the rights  of citizenship.    The liossland Miner  is one of the papers  that cannot bo  classed from this time on  as anything other than a  newspaper that  deliberately    publishes   falsehoods  and misleading statements in order  to score a point against a man who  is  not a candidate for office, and  who is not in any way  interfering  with others iu the exercise of their  political rights.    On Sunday morning,   in   its   editorial   columns,   it  states that John Houston of Nelson  worked and voted for Hewitt Rostock, a Liberal, for member of parliament in   1800.     This  is  an  unqualified untruth in every respect.  It also says that Mr. Houston voted  for   J.   Fred   Hume, a  Liberal, as  against A. S. Farwell, a  Conservative, for member of the local  legislature in 1S98.    This statement is  intended to mislead.   There was no  contest between Liberals and Conservatives as political   parties, in  1898.    Mr. Hume was the candidate  of the Opposition party, who recognized Charles A. Semlin of Yale  (who by the way was then  and is  now a good Conservative) as leader.  Mr. Farwell was the candidate of  the Government party, who recognized J. H. Turner of - Victoria as  leader.    Mr. Hume's chief support  came from men who were then and  are now Conservatives.    The same  conditions prevailed   in, Rossland  riding, where the - candidates were  .Tames Martin, who is a Liberal, and  .John McKane, who is a Conservative.  Mr. Martin was the candidate of the  Opposition party, and Mr. McKane  of   the   Government   party.     Mr.  Martin   was ' supported, by   many  good Conservatives,  among  others  A. II. MaeNeill, who is now the candidate of the  Conservative party  for member of the house of commons.   The Miner also says. that  Mr. Houston opposed the candidate  of the Conservative party in Nelson  riding at the last provincial  election.    This is also  intended to mislead." A majority of the electors in  Nelson   and   Slocan   ridings   were  opposed   to   the    introduction    of  "party^line politics   into provincial  elections, aud they proved by their  votes that they had the courage of  their convictions.     John  Houston  was elected  as a Provincial  party  candidate   over   a  candidate who  ran as a   party-line Conservative  and another who  ran as an  Independent Liberal.    The Miner also  says that Mr. Houston was  elected  by the votes of workingmen, whose  votes  were   obtained  under   false  pretences.   This is another unqualified untruth.    The Rossland Miner,  in    tho    present    campaign,    has  repeatedly shown  that it is without political principles, and it is  showing every day of  late  that -it  has no scruples whatever in disseminating untruths about private  citizens.

PLATFORM  nAdopted by the.Liberal-Co.nservative Party in Convention  at Revelstoke, September 15th, 1900  We, tlie deleg.ates of theXiberal-Conseryative party of Yale-Cariboo  constituency, in convention assembled, _reaffirm the principles of the  party, and more particularly that cardinal prihciple/protection to home  industries, and that that principle be. carried out so that all sections of  the country shall equally share its benefits.  The one industry on which the prosperity of this constituency is  almost wholly dependent is mining; and we .believe that our mining industries are as fairly ��u'titled to.protection.as the manufacturing industries of Eastern Canada ; therefore, we,advocate that the duties on lead  aiid_Iead-pr6ducts"beTncreased7sothatthej'-shall-bea.s-higli-asJtliose-now  imposed by the United States**on the same articles.  . That the output of the precious metal mines is largely, increasing,  therefore we favor the astablishraent of a mint, so that the specie iii circulation shall be that of our own instead of tliat of a foreign country.  We advocate the restriction of the immigration of Chinese and .Tap-  anese, and all classes who cannot become good citizens of the Dominion  of Canada, and suggest the adoption of the principles of the Natal Act.  British Columbia lias not now .the representation in the federal parliament that she is entitletl to: therefore we, advocate, that when the  redistribution of seats, is made that this constituency shall be given representation according to its population.  That it augurs ,-well for the success of tlie party that Hugh John  Macdonald has decided to leave the field of provincial politics .to take  part in the larger one that affects the people of the whole'of Canada.

The night when the Hamilton  volunteers wero weleomed homo  IV. un South Africa will long be re-  iif.-mhereil sis one of the greatest  iiijjhl-3 in Hamilton's history. The  y'va-lt-'onie demonstration was the  rni'.st   impressive   and  successfully  - organized demonstrations that has  1 i-v'-r taken place in this town, nnd  . i lie  enthusiasm  of the  thousands  who thronged tho streets was spontaneous and genuine. Those who  w.ere present at the great welcome  demonstration in Toronto on Monday say that the Hamilton affair  was the more impressive of the two.  Lieutenant Marshall and tho men  of his* company, in whose honor  tins great manifestation of popular  enthusiasm was given, deserve all  tlie honor which has been accorded  them. And sc, of com se, does the  Canadian contingent as a body,  which was honored last night in the  honor paid to Hamilton members,  l'"or tlie Canadiai volunteeis had  ' their full.share, if not more than  their share, of all the dangers and  hardships of cue of tho most trying  campaigns that British soldiers  ever went -through. The greatest  glory won by the Canadians was at  . Paardeberg, where, upon the testi-  - mony.of lord Roberts, they earned  the chief credit for the capture of  general Cronje and his 4000 Boers,  and proved by their steady valor,  coolness and dash that Canadians  are not inferior to any soldiers in  the world. Their splendid reputation was earned at Paardeberg at a  terrible cost.of life; but the price  paid,.was.; none too- great for the  glory gained, and the memory of  those Conadians who fell on that  fateful 'Sunday will be cherished,  and honored by their, -grateful  country. But not at Paardeberg  alone was Canadian mettle shown.  At Sunnyside, Thaba Mountain,  Y*esternek, Houtnek, Zand River,  Winburg and many other battles  and'skirmishes the Canadian boys  wore sorely tried and not found  wanting. Then there were the interminable forced marches over  the sand and under a tropical  sun, months of hard work on fortifications at Belmont, the terrible  enteric fever, insufficient rations  and bad rations, worn-out boots  and i agged clothing, tortures. from  thirst that could be.allayed only by  drinking putrid water, and a thousand other dangers, hardships, and  annoyances, large.and small known  only- to- the-soldiers themselves  And through-it all the Canadians  bore themselves not only, with  courage and fortitude, but with. a  patience and cheeriness which have  ���drawn-the-highest-praise^from-the_  commander-in-chief and many gen-  - eral officers and won for them the  admiration of their comrades from  the other colonies and from Britain.  The record of Canadian volunteers in the war has done much to  bring* honor to Canada and to  strengthen the bonds of empire.  They were our representatives.  They represented us nobly, and  they should be honored as heroes���  every man of them. ,  A Succession of Strikes.  Sandon Paj streak.  Another important strike was  made at the Reco <this week. Jn  tlie upraise from the No. 8 tunnel,  where the find was made about a  month .ago,another streak of seventeen inch P3 of clean ore was opened  up. The ledge in the Reco seldom  carries much, vein matter, and  where it does not carry ore the  walls are usually tight together,  leaving only a seaui to indicate the  course of the ledge. In this particular spot there.is a foot, of ledge  matter between .the walls. After  finding the six-inch ore chute and  opening it in several places it was  considered ad vis.able to - cross-cut,  so as to discover the exact nature of  the vein, and in so doing the recent  strike was made. . This last strike  has, caused something.of a local sensation, as the well-known richness  of the Reco. ore makes it a very important one. The company has  paid to date some .$280,000 dividends, and shipped the highest  grade galena ore ever produced in  Canada ..or the states. There are  at present fifteen men working at  the mine opening up the ore chute,  and as soon as the rawhide season  opens shipping will be commenced.

An incident of special interest to  Forty-nine creek miners and to  prospectors generally transpired  last week. A man named Clark and  a partner went onto the ground  lying between the Royal Canadian  mine and Kootenay river and proceeded to pre-empt 320 acres in a  strip one mile long and half a mile  wide. They made entries for the  pre-emption, stating therein that  tho ground applied for' did - not  cover any mineral claims. The two;  went back to the land and commenced cutting wood, y ,  This was a surprise party for .Toe  Duhamel and other prospectors who  have valuable mineral claims on the  land pre-empted. They immediately laid the matter before Joliiv  A. Turner, gokV commissioner, who  cancelled the1" pre-emption and  authorized notices instructing the  parties-to-clear-out  The point involved is that a  miner locating a mineral claim cannot be ousted by a pre-emptor for  homestead purposes and it is just as  well that an object lessou has been  given along this line.

Hon. W. C. Wells, commissioner  of lands and works, spent yesterday  in Nelson attending to business  connected witli his department.  He had not time to pay Kaslo a  visit, and R. F. Green, member for  Slocan riding, came to Nelson to  talk over matters concerning his  riding. Mr. Wells is finding it  difficult to please everyone, and he  also finds some difficulty in expending appropriations for roads and  trails without waste. He left Nelson for Victoria last night.  Fay More  as a Rule.  The   Nelson  business man   who  contracts   for   work  with outside .  firms in preference to doing busi- I  ness with local industries is likely  to pay dearly for his purchase as a  rule; One firm of lawyers had an  experience yesterday which supports this statement. A representative of a coast firm of bookbinders called at their office (: and  was invited to figure ou binding  the British Columbia Gazette for  the current���=; year. The coast man  quoted $2.25 for the job, and on  looking up their books the Nelson  lawyers discovered that a few  weeks ago they had their Gazette  for 1899 bound for $1.75. The  work in Nelson was done by The  Tribune Association, Limited.' The  point is obvious.  PROCEEDINGS IN CHAMBERS  Before Judge Forin.
