 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  -*��i  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR.  NELSON:   THQRSDAY MORNING NOVEMBER lo  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  :#���  MOLLY TOON TO SHIP STEADILY  Tramway Is Now Running and Contract for Teaming  Ore Has Been Let.  THE PROPERTY HAS $500,000 WORTH OF ORE IN SICHT  Lehigh Valley Railroad Company,  the plaintiff was awarded a verdict  of $5000. Miss Anderson rode on  the track on a bicycle and a train  struck and killed her. Her heirs  claimed .$20,000 damages.  The Molly Gibson  tramway was  started yesterday and this with the  i losing of a contract for the hauling of ore marks the beginning of  ii new era in the history of the  |i-'operfc3r.      Heretofore   the   Molly  Gibson has been known as a splendid mining proposition from whieh  several successful shipments have  been made, but in. future it must be  regarded as a mine in  every sense  of the word and. added to the list  of producing properties.which will  eventually make the Nelson carrip  known wherever mining is followed.  Tlie    tramway    which    1ms   just  commenced operations is 8033 feet,  probably one of the longest in the  province.     Most of the outfit came  from    the   Lanark   mine- in    the  lllicillewaet district, and as reconstructed theytram is substantial and  complete   in every 'respect...   The  contract for teaming has  been let  to   Edward Conetre arid' L: Mackenzie.     The agreement   calls  for  hauling twenty tons of ore to the  lake daily and the product will be  shipped to the Hall Mines smelter  for treatment.  During the coming winter the  present force of 10 men will be increased to 00. A boarding house  intended to accommodate 80 men is  under way and should be ready for  occupation in a fortnight." The  .shipments during the winter will  be clean ore, the cone- ntratiug ore  being saved on the diinip for future  treatment when a/concentrator is  erected. In - this connection it - is  interesting to note\that last year  500 tons of ore - was \shipped from  the mine, realizing $17,000. During the four months covered by the  teaming contract the value of the  output will represent a small fortune.  The history of the Molly Gibson  mine has had its incidents like all  other big properties; In 1890 R. J.  Willie and P, W. George staked the  lirst claims, which are twelve miles  ul) stream from the mouth of Koka-  nee creek. They gave Patsy Glark  of Spokane an option on the claims  at $30,000 at once but the deal did  not go through. Then Rufus Pope  of Sherbrooke, Que., became interested through the efforts of Bruce  White, and a bond was made at  $00,000. Meantime the property  became plunged in litigation, the  result of which was that the litigants came together and arranged  a settlement^whereby--George_and_  Willie were bought out at $30,000  and another, man named Callahan  who had become interested received $18,000. Then all interests  were consolidated and a company  formed and since then about $00,-  000 has been expended in   develop  ment, road making aud plant.  The general formation, of the  country in the district of the Molly  Gibson is granite, and the veins on  the property are true fissure,  standing almost perpendicular, and  cutting the granite at right angles,  and being intersected at intervals  with cross veins. The ledge matter  is altered granite .and oxidized iron,  the pay chute containing galena,  copper, magnesia, iron and a small  percentage of gold. The ore also  carries lime, which makes it very  desirable for smelting purposes.  The group includes the Molly Gibson, Aspen, LaPlatta,' Little Duke,  Florence Fraction and Little Fraction, in all, 275 acres of mineral  laud.  The property is developed to a  stage where it can produce indefinitely. There are 2000 feet of tunneling onfive levels, aud a reasonable estimate of the ore iii sight  is said to place its value at $500,-  000. No. 1; tunnel hits been driven  on the Florence vein arid is in 130  feet. It shows a chute of ore 100  feet long and 12 inches wide, which  ass��ays 00 ounces in silver and 15  per cen t lead. The second tunnel  is also on the Florence vein 100 feet  lower, but is in 310 feet. It is  estimated that 7000 tons of ore  averaging 50 ounces of silver and  10 to 15 per cent lead is in sight.  No 3 tunnel is on the La Plata  claim about 300 feet below the  second level. It is driven (58 feet  all in ore which assays (50 ounces  silver and 20. per cent lead. The  principal tunnel on the .mine is No.  4, starting on the Aspen .vein and  tapping by crosscuts the Florence  vein. On tlie Aspen vein the tunnel was run 203 feet, and -ore was  found about 30 feet from the  mouth, the quality being indicated  by the fact .that several carloads of- ore from this chute  gave results of 200 ounces in silver  and 20 per cent lead. The crosscut  north from this tunnel struck the  Florence vein at .a distance of 58  feet and the tunnel was then continued along the Florence vein for  S00 feet, making the total length of  the drift 1000 feet. The ore chute  opened up is continuous and assays  30 to 200 ounces in silver and 5 to  25 per cent lead. Tunnels 1, 2, 3  and 4 are estimated to show an  aggregate of 12,300 tons of shipping ore in sight. No. 5 tunnel is  to be a crosscut and is located on  the Little Duke, 225 feet below the  fourth level and is now under way.  The management estimates that if  jthii*LNQ.^5_tunneis=j;levelops^as^good=  a showing as No. 4 they will have a  million dollars worth of ore in  sight. When the vein is reached  drifts will be run east and west to  develop the Aspen ground where  the work has been confined to the  surface up to the present.  Not Altogether a Frost.  New York, November 11.���The  jury in tlie case of Joseph W.  Frost, against Robert A. Pinkerton  and the Brooklyn jockey club for  damages for false arrest and imprisonment, returned a verdict today in the supreme court for $5000  damages for Frost. Frost sued for  $50,000. It had been alleged by  the defense that Frost and his companions were furnishing information from the Gravesend racetrack  to tlie poolrooms.

Washington, November 11.���It  is said that the details of tho propositions before the council of ministers at Pekin as set out in the  London special dispatches aro substantially correct. However, they  are not included in any one note so  far received here officially, but are  rather comprised iii a series of  notes and telegrams that have been  exchanged between the state  department and minister Conger  day by day as the negotiations proceeded. The state department  has regarded several of these  propositions as extremely unwise  or undesirable, but has not felt that  that fact justified the United  States in withdrawing singly from  the concert of powers.  "We  News,  Cannot Withdraw.  London, November 15. -  understand," says the Daily  "that lord Roberts has intimated  that it is impossible to withdraw  more troops from South Africa."  Looting the Tombs.  London, November 14.���Dr. Morrison, wiring to the Times from  Pekin Monday and referring to the  German expedition to the tombs of  the Ming dynasty and Kalgnan,  says : "Opinion hore condemns the  looting of the tombs, although no  punishment could be excessive for  the cruelties recently revealed. One  English missionary had his eyes  burned in their sockets with incense  sticks. Ho survived his agonies for  30 hours. A loyal Chinaman today  discussed with ino the probability  of general Tung Fu Hsiang raising  a rebellion among the discontented  Moslems in western China."  Serious Fire.  Detroit, Michigan, November  14.���A fire which started in the engine room of the Detroit Bridge &  Iron Works early today did between $00,000 and $75,000 damage.  Five hundred men are thrown out  of work. The loss is covered by insurance. The works will be started  again as soon as possible.  A Missing Soldier.

Anderson, as administrator of Anna  L. Anderson, deceased, against the  St. Petersburg, November 14.���  Prof. G. Fred Wright of Oberly  college, and his sou, Fred' Bennett'  Wright, have arrived' here after a  five months' journey in Siberia and  central Asia.  They sailed from San Francisco;  in the same steamer that carried  Mrs. Conger, wife of the United  States minister to China, aud Mrs.  Williard, spending a month in  Japan and reaching* Pekin about  the end of last April. Mr. Conger  procured for them a permit to  travel in the interior of China.  They spent a week on the Mongolian plateau and returned to  Pekin May 25th.  When going to Mongolia they observed the Boxers drilling and prac--  tising contortions outside of Pekin  with wooden swords and spears.  Upon their return they heard Chinese gun practice 15 miles distant  from the capital, whicli was ridiculed in Pekin.  While in Tien-Tsin they were  stoned by the mob until they  bribed the police to interfere. The  Russian vice-admiral Alexieff for  warded them June 4th by a construction train and wagon under  Cossack guard to Harbin, the triangular crossing ��� point of the Siberian railway where American material is brought up by the way of  the Amur and Sungari rivers.  Eighty miles below Blagovost-  chensk, capital of the Amur government, communications were obstructed, but they got within 30  miles by wagon. The Chinese were  e-x^p^^dyc^a^a^k_thejvjnagj=aud  "the entire population, with the exception of Prof. Wright's party and  the Cossacks, fled. Prof. Wright  observed Cossacks burning Chinese  villages, and he passed through a  burning city of ten thousand people. He counted one hundred bodies in the Amur river within five  minutes. Ultimately he managed  to secure a boat going up the river  to the railway at Vrotinsk, and  reached Omsk, after a fortnight.  At this point Prof. Wright and his  sou left the railway, taking the  Irtish river to Pavlodar, Thence  they proceeded 1300 miles by wagon  to Tashkent, making 70 miles as a  daily voyage, and one day covering  132 miles. They visited Samarand,  Baku, Tiftis, Vladikavaks and Moscow. The object of the journey  was to study glacial phenomena in  Asia for comparison with American  phenomena,"  Winter in Dead wood.  DEADWOOD, South Dakota, November 14.���A great storm began  this morning with .a gentle snow  aud mist. Reports from surrounding towns and mining camps state  that the storm is general.  "No," he said, decidedly, "women  should not have the ballot." "Why  not?" she demanded. "Because of  her uselessness in case of a conflict.  The one who votes should also be  of service when it comes to fighting." " I should think," she returned thoughtfully, " that woman  might be of value in putting patches  on the seat of war." Thus again  was woman's resourcefulness in  argument demonstrated.���Chicago  Post,  Loyal to Spain.  Madrid, November 14.���The  queen regent today received the  delegates to the Spanish-American  congress and their families. Senor  Zandivar, the representative of Salvador, expressed on behalf of the  Spanish-Americans their love for  the mother country, "whose glories  and sufferings they shared."  The Kaiser Is Hot.  Berlin, November 14.���The  Frankfurter Zeitung prints a dispatch from China saying that dis-  head of   beef, cattle.  left. Dawson on the  October 17th, on' the  which was said to"be  that would make the  between Dawson and White Horse,  where railway connection  is made  with- Skagway.   Tlie trip in or out  of Dawson is now easily made.  Mr. Perdue was, oue of the first  men who undertook to take fresh  beef into the Yukon, and he now  considers it no. greater an undertaking than he often experienced in  the early days ��� in bringing beef  cattle over from ��� the Kettle River  country to Nelson. On the last  trip iritj he drove 150 head of fine'  steers from Pyramid Harbor to  Selkirk, a distance of 300 mile's, in  seven weeks. . Jle had six men in  his party. At' Selkirk the steers  were killed, and the dressed beef  put on scows1 and run down the  Yukon to Dawson." He sold the  meat to P. Burns & Co. at a good  profit. When he left Dawson the  stock of fresh 'meat iu hand there  was about-as'follows: 1000 carcases of beef, 1000 hogs, 2500 sheep,  and 75 tons of dressed fowl. This  would be ample to carry the country through raie winter.  Speaking- -in a ' general way of  Dawson, Mr.. Perdue-says the town  is quite modern;'arid that living  there now is very little different  from living in .any of the up-to-date  towns in ' British' Columbia. The  streets have been graded and; improved,- and^th.qr^tow.n-ids. 'well  drained. * Fine, 'warehouses have  been built along the water front.  There are both warm and cold storage warehouses in the city, and  electric lights aud 'power plants.  . The general belief is that next  year's output of gold will be the  largest the country, has had. This  is not because richer ground is being  worked, but because' of tho introduction of machinery .and better  appliances for working. The country, in Mr. Perdue's opinion, is good  for several years yet.  Among the Nelson boys whom he  met there were Bob Wiseon, Bert  Good, and Ed. Beer.  He brought out.. copies of the  Daily Klondike Nugget and Dawson Daily New?, both of. which contain much that is political. Neither  of the two supported the government candidates, but each accuses  the other of being willing to sell  itheir*"infliience"to=these ���candidatesT  The people's candidates were A. J.  Prndhomme, who is one ofthe pioneer contractors and builders of  Dawson, and Arthur Wilson, a  miner. The government candidates  were Tom O'Brien and a lawyer  named Noel. Prudhomme and Wilson were elected; The issue was,  practically, local self-government  and a government assay office.  There is little question that the  men who have held and now hold  office in the Yukon wero and are  not popular.  Emperor to Return to Pekin.  Tien-Tsin, November 11.���It is  reported that an imperial edict has  been issued announcing that emperor Nwang Su and the empress  dowager will return to Pekin.  A Russian column of 330 men,  with four guns, which left here  November 4th, returned November  Oth, having engaged tho Chinese.  At Hsia Tian the Russians fought  2000 Chinese troops, dispersing them  and killing 200. The Russians had  no casualties.  cord prevails in Pekin between the  military and the diplomatists, and  that the latter are also .at loggerheads among themselves. The Vor-  waerts, the Socialist organ, says:  "AVe are informed that the kaiser  is indignant over the letters from  soldiers in China, showing German  atrocities there, aud has ordered au  immediate investigation. An army  order of this character is inpre-  paration. Jb is incomprehensible,  however, that siieli letters should  cause displeasure in army circles,  since they only show that the soldiers correctly execute the orders  given by their superiors."  Kruger at Port Said.  Tort Said,'November' 14.���The  Dutch cruiser Gelderland, with Mr.  Kruger on board has arrived here.  FATAL ACCIDENT AT THE4E Bi  Norman  McDonald,  Feet  a Carpenter,  Falls   One  Hundred  From  a Scaffolding.  NEWS OF GENERAL INTEREST THROUGHOUT THE DOMINION  A SUNDAY MAIL  SERVICE  BOARD OF TRADE WILL AGITATE  THE MATTER.  The Tax on Gross Output of Mines  Was Also Considered���Other Business Before' the Meeting.  The Nelson board * of trade has  taken   up   the matter of securing  mail service in aud out of the city  on Sundays over the Crojvs Nest  road.     The desirability of such a  service   goes   without   saying, .and  was drawn to the attention  of the  postmaster-general some time ago.  At that time the reply was that the  department had no mail car on the  road and could not give the service  without putting on an additional  clerk.    In the interim a combination postal and express car has been  placed on the run between Medicine  Hat .and   Kootenay   Landing, and  comes in daily, but carries no mail  on Sunday.   The mail clerk comes  through-to Nelson - and lays  here  over Sunday when he would probably prefer making mileage back to  Medicine Hat.   These points willbe  impressed on the postofflce department, together with  the  necessity  of having mail for and from Nelson  forwarded   promptly   instead    of  holding two mails a week for twenty-four   hours   at    Medicine   Hat.  Such was the decision arrived at by  the board of trade last night, and  the   secretary   was   authorized   to  draft the necessary letter at once.  The meeting also tackled the two  per cent tax levied by the provincial government on the gross output of "mines less treatment and  freight charges. The subject was  broached by George E. C. Martin,  manager of the Kootenay Supply  Company, who moved that in the  opinion of the board the tax had  been insufficiently considered and  requires amendment. In this form  the resolution did not meet with  approval ancHtjwaa finally resolved  "to ieave~~the question with a committee who were empowered to  consider the matter and report at a  future meeting. Tho president  nominated II. E. Croasdaile, G. E. C.  Martin, J. Roderick Robertson, J. J.  Campbell and T. G. Procter as the  committee to go into the problem.  A communication was read from  the Vancouver board requesting  the Nelson board to affiliate with  trades organizations throughout  the Dominion in securing tlie passage at the next sitting of parliament of an equitable bankruptcy  act which would be uniform in its  workings from Atlantic to Pacific.  The method of action suggested  was that of interviewing candidates  for parliamentary honors and securing pledges that if returned they  would support such legislation.  The members present agreed that  such a statute was desirable, and it  was resolved that the Nelson board  should help the movement along,  and John Bannerman, M. Ferland  and T. Morley were .-'authorized to  interview the candidates.  On motion of H. E. Croasdaile  and F. Marley it was- resolved that  in future no resolution of the board  or council could be repealed or  amended without notice iu writing  being given to all members in  attendance at tlie meeting when  the resolution to be rescinded or  amended was passed.  The members in attendance at  tho session were: G. V. Holt, president; J. J. Campbell, T. Allen, M.  Ferland, A. J. Marks, T. G. Procter,  C. Hillyer, F. Fletcher, A. G. Gamble, John Bannerman,  G.  Kydd, G.  E. C. Martin, II. E. Croasdaile and  F. W. Swannell, secretary.  - Rossland, November 14.���A   fatal accident occurred in the Le Roi  this morning at   10   o'clock,   when  Norman McDonald, a carpenter employed in the Le Roi, fell 100 feet  in the main 9haft and subsequently  succumbed   to   his   injuries.     Me-.  Donald was working on a scaffold  in tho main or Black Bear shaft ��� of  tho Le Roi   at the 700   foot   station.     The scaffold   was stretched  across the shaft and McDonald was  timbering.    It is said that   he was  placing-a wedge   in   between   the  timbers   and   missed  his   balance,  causing him to   stumble   forward.  The plank on whicli he was   standing turned over and   the   unfortunate man was precipitated headlong down the shaft, falling a full  hundred feet to the   800  foot   station.   The injured man wa9 at once  brought to the surface   and   taken  to the Sisters' hospital, where Drs.  Bowes and   Senior   attended   him.  McDonald was too   badly   injured,  however, and never had any chance  of recovery.    He died within a very  short time after he was brought to  the hospital without recovering his  senses.   He was single, aged 28 and  came from Kinross, Prince Edward  Island.

"��\  Grand Trunk Manager.  New York, November 14.���President sir Charles Rivers Wilson of  the Grand Trunk "railway and vice-  president of " several , railroads  arrived from London today,' and  has left the city for Montreal to  make such arrangements as may be  necessary in' view'of the ~resignation of general manager Charles M.  Hays to become president of the,;  Southern Pacific. It was stated  today that they are likely to shortly  announce the selection of general  superintendent F. H. McGuigan as  general manager of the Grand  Trunk. He has been the chief  subordinate of Mr. Hays in the  operating department during the  latters's administration of the  Grand Trunk. He was formerly on  the Wabash when Mr. Hays was  general manager of that company  and went to the Grand Trunk in  February, 1890;   The Ottawa Tire Fund.  London, November 14.���The lord  mayor of London in summing up  the achievements of his year's  mayoralty notes that ��54,000 was  collected for the Ottawa fire fund.  A^somewhTit^lml^i^  ever, is created by the fact that the  public has never been informed  how the-money was spent. These  criticisms are pointed, because it  was asserted before the fund .was  closed that the Ottawa fire committee already had more money  than they knew what to do with.  In Anglo-Canadian circles the  opinion is freely expressed: that  lord Minto and sir Wilfrid lAurier,  under whose auspices the English  money was collected, should at once  make a full public statement. Further criticism is provoked by the  publication in the Times today of  an appeal from tho bishop ot Saskatchewan on behalf of the Calgary  bishopric fund. It is pointed out  now that Gauada has become a  nation and she should cease to act  as a mendicant in England.  ' Montreal, November 11.���Harry^,.

There is no finer strategistin Canadian politics than Hugh John Macdonald. It was a master stroke,  his raid on Brandon, and failure  does not alter the essential fact  that he sacrificed himself to save  his friends in the west. There is a  line contrast between the defeat of  sir Charles Tupper in Capo Breton  and the election of hon. Clifford Sifton in Brandon. Sir Charles no-  ���glccted his own interests to fight  the battles of his friends. Mr. Sifton attended principally to his own  interests, and his friends were  largely left to take care of themselves. . If the resources which  were concentrated upon Brandon  had been distributed over Manitoba  and the west tho returns might  have recorded a Liberal triumph.  Hugh John Macdonald seems to  have sacrificed himself to save his  party, and Mr. Sifton seems to have  sacrificed his party to save himself. <a  4/  1i*HE TEIBUNE: NELSON B.

They are reported  as haying entered into-a bargain-to  allow Maxwell, the Liberal candidate for the commons,, to be returned by acclamation. In.return  :for this, mayor Garden, who is also  a member of the local legislature  and the candidate of the Conservative party for the commons, is to  be allowed to accept office in the  Diuismuir government without a  contest. It is a cold day when  Vancouver gets left. And . the  people of the interior sit still and  take their medicine as if they liked  it. What does the Dunsmnir government represent today other than  the interests centred at Victoria  and Vancouver? Who in that  government represents either the  political ambitions or the business  interests of the fifty thousan.1  people who live in the stretch of  country east of the Cascade range  aud north of the international  boundary line?  WRITTEN  BY  LIBERALS.  Tiik Tribune lias'placed a part oC one column  at the ��� disposal of the Liberals, whoso .views  will be"expressed therein from limo to Mine during thecatnpa'K'). Alike privilege is accorded  the Liibor party and I ho Conservative:1.  The Rossland Miner," whose opinion on questions political is worthless, says Hon. Clifford Sifton when  he arrives here will advise candidate Galliher to drop out of the  race in favor of candidate Foley.  . W..A. Galliher, Liberal candidate  for the constituency" of Yale-Cariboo, is conducting a most vigorous  campaign with the best possible results. Last week he addressed  crowded meetings at Slocan ' City,  Silverton, New Denver and.Nakusp  and throughout he . was well received. In the Slocan, as in ' other  sections of the constituency, Mr.  Galliher is g'ainingmany votesfrom'  the ranks of his opponents, and in  Silverton and New Denver the  chairmen of/.his meetings were  prominent Conservatives who are  supporting Mr. Galliher, and who  gave the audiences excellent reasons for their action.  On the main line of the C. P. R.  Mr. Galliher is meeting with equal  Tiir question of the quick despatch and receipt of mails throughout southern British Columbia  should bo taken lip in' earnest, not  by.boards of trade; for ;they are  more or less, discredited organizations, but by the people in : mass  meetings. The government should  be made understand just what is  needed, and then should be made  carry out the will of the people.  One of Lauricr's ministers is to be  in Nelson in a day or two, and instead of giving him a political reception at the opera house, he  should be given an earnest talk up  in the vicinity of the city cemetery.  Ten days hence, the Great Northern    railway    intends to   begin,  giving Nelson tlie marble heart. Instead of a through passenger train  service between  Nelson and   Spokane, as has been given  for years,  .a jerkwater is to be put on between  Nelson   and   some point down  in  Washington.       It   will    probably  start when it gets ready and pull in  when it has nothing else to do.     Ifc  is not of this  that  the  people  of  Nelson need complain, for if "Jim"  Hill does not want to do business in  or with the town,  the people and  the town can both get along very  well without doing business with  him.     Hut there is one thing in  which the peoplo of the town  are  interested.     The Great   Northern  parries   Canadian   mail, and   the  Put Youp .....

Prominent supporters of Mr. Foley  have been diligently circulating reports that Mr. Galliher will retire,  and even that the Hon.

MacNEILL  of Rossland  Candidate of the Liberal-Conservative Party for Member  of the House of Commons for Yale-Cariboo.  PLATFORM  Adopted by the Liberal-Conservative Party in Convention  at Revelstoke, September 15th, 1900  We, the delegates of the Liberal-Conservative party of Yale-Cariboo  constituency, in convention assembled, .reaffirm the principles of the  party, and more particularly that cardinal principle, protection to home  industries, and that that principle be carried out so that all sections of  the country shall equally share its benefits.  The one industry on which the prosperity of this constituency is  almost wholly, dependent is mining; and-we believe that our mining industries are as fairly entitled to protection as the manufacturing industries of Eastern Canada ; therefore, we advocate that the duties on lead  andjead^pj^djicj^-jjjeyncreased,s^i^^  imxiosed by the UnitedStates on the same articles^ -���       -^  That the output of the precious < metal mines is largely increasing,  therefore we favor the establishment of a mint, so that the specie in circulation shall be that of our own instead of that of a foreign country.  AVe advocate the restriction of the immigration of Chinese and Japanese, and all classes who cannot become good citizens of the Dominion  of Canada, and suggest- the adoption of the principles of tho Natal Act.  British Columbia has not now the representation in the federal parliament that she is entitled to: therefore wo advocate that when the  redistribution of seats ismade that this constituency shall be given representation according to its population. ,:���*���  That it augurs well for the success of the party that Hugh .Tohn  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.

Mr. Hales, the special correspon-  11 nt of the London Daily News, in  mi amusing account of an early  morning scouting expedition with  i lie celebrated scout, Driscoll, fiays :  As we rode, the little track brought  ii ��� hard up ou ono side against the  bosom of a mountain; on the other  t.linre was a ravine, deep, black, cov-  cred with loose boulders and dark  green bushes, a nico place to bo shot  in. Driscoll, who rode rifle on  thigh, had no such thoughts, for as  lie rode he sang once more his etor-  iml refrain:  IJ [ion my life,   said the   silly  old  wife,  There's a malm   Suddenly, without any warning  of any kind, tho hills rang with tho  echoes of a dozen rifles, and the  lead spit-spattered on the cliff sides  all round us. "Come on," yelled  Driscoll, and, driving the spurs  home in the big gray, ho dashed  along that narrow goat path as if  ho had been on an open race track.  1 got as close to my horse as I  could. On wo went, and in tho  midst of tlie echoes from the rifles  I caught his voice howling: "Upon  my life, said (ping, ping) the silly  ', old wife (ping, ping, pash), there's a  malm (ping,ping, pash). We rounded  a Lttu*n in the track, . and my  heart nearly fell over my horse's  head, for I saw that we were- in a  blind alley; a mountain rose in  front of us like a wall. " "We are'  nailed, Driscoll," I shouted ; "trapped like rats." "Not yet, sonny;  we've got a good chance yet," His  Irish voice was steady- and calm  .now. Out of his saddle he slipped,  and, running to the cave, iii tlie  track, he dropped on one krtee, and  began to shoot. I saw a man in a  tweed suit leap half wav over a  boulder, then sprawl down ou top  of it on.his belly, and lay where  he sprawled. Another darted from  a rock toward a clump of bushes,  but,he, never reached them. He  stopped suddenly, dropped his rifle,  and tumbled backwards towards  the spot he had started from, Then  the rest took cover like a lot of rock  rabbits. They knew by. this time  that there was a man behind the  rifle in the top end of the gully,  and they knew too well what a man  and a rifle could do in such a position to dare to take any liberties.  Then the scout gave me my orders,  sharp and clear: "Take your horse  by the head," he' said, "and climb  up the side of this ' kopje. Keep  your horse between you and those  fellows down there. I'll drop the  first man who shows himself. When  you reach the top put your horse  over the brow of the hill, and then   tako-cover. Don'kexpose^yourself,.  but make them think that you are  there to shoot; then I'll follow  you." I did not waste any time in  argument. There was no time for  folly of that kind. But just lugging  my clever" little Basuto by the  bridle we made the climb. It was  a terribly stiff place for a horse to  go, but that Neddy was as tricky  as a oat on his feet. Once or twice  I heard tho bullets whizzing overhead, but Driscoll's rifle cracked at  the same time, and I kneSv there  was little danger for me, for men  can't shoot without showing themselves, and I knew no man down in  that ravino would pop his head  above a rock for many seconds with  the grim scout watching from  above.  As soon as I reached tho top I  was out of all danger. Grabbing a  few loose rocks, I rapidly built a  schanze, such as the Boers use when  they are going to lie down and wait  for a shot at a passing enemy, and  there I ensconced myself. The ruse  was successful. The Boers, think-,  ing I had a rifle and meant to use  it, lay quiet until Driscoll clambered  iip the same way he had sent rae,  and neither of us had a scratch.  As we galloped homewards, I said;  "Well, do you think you'll ever  coax me out on such a fool's errand  again?"  "Yer a hard malm to plaze," he  paid, dropping into his native  brogue, "A; rael hard malm to  plnze. -You growl about monotony  of camp life, 'nd. phiu Oi give ye a  good day's outing ye grumble the  more, ye onthankful lump ov quill-  drivin' sin."  "But what blessed good did it all  do?   Tell we that, you Irishman?"  ALL  mmsms sold 25 per cent cheaper than any other  HOUSE IN NELSON.  Latest Up-to-Date Stock.

Had a'  strong patrol gone into that blind  alley, how many men do you think  would have come out alive?-Mighty  few, my friend. And let me tell  you, that there have- been enough  saddles emptied in that fool's fashion already in the British army. A  good morning's work I call it!"  And so did the general   when he  heard of it.  Lardeau Claims Bonded.  Ferguson Eagle.  It is with more than a degree of  satisfaction that tho  Eagle can announce  the fact that the Towser  Mining Company, so well known iu  this district, have decided to accept  tho liberal offer of the owners of  the Towser mine,  D. Ferguson and  J.   Knowles,   and   will   commence  work with a full force of men in-a  few days.   It Avill be remembered  that early last spring this company  discontinued work, pulled up the  rails, brought -down their supplies  and outfitaud stored them in Batho  iS: Company's warehouse, but it will  also bo remembered that tlie company were anxious- to acquire the  property at a smaller figure.   Failing in this, nothing has been  done  all  summer long.   The owners*;  at  ���that time offered to give them IS  months iirwhich to prove the pro-'  perty   and   make   the    payments.  And this is what has taken place.  The balance, $37,000, $3000-having  already been  paid, is divided up,  the first one due in six months,- and  the balance divided up for the following     year.       The     managers,  Messrs. G. P. Ritter and J. M. Skeaif  of. Chicago will arrive in a few days  to take charge of the work.   John  Sweeney will likely be foreman.    It  is   thought that at  least twenty  men will be employed.   The company" did some 500 feet of development last winter, and as they buy  all   their   supplies l' in    town���an  example for one or two further   up  the hill���it will help materially   to  liven   things   up   this   winter.    S.  Daney, having received instructions  by wire, is busy packing the outfit  back to the property.   The Towser  Mining Syndicate is one of the best  concerns that ever operated iu this  district,*aud if tlie Eagle is rightly  informed' great credit is  due   Win.  Cowan for having re-interested the  company and bringing  them   back  to the country again.   Mr. Cowan  like other men���except a few wiseacres who are paid for their knowledge   (?)���has   confidence   in   the  Towser.   There are no unnecessary  officers, directors, clerks, red   tape,  etc., and the manager's word goes���  no instructions by   cablegram.   It  is not a stocked company, but a cooperative syndicate   consisting   of  Chicago, Indianapolis and St. Louis  capitalists.   With such a combination things should go with   a   vim  this winter, and if the   Eagle   can  rely on the opinion of local miners  the Towser will be.shipping ore before next spring.

To Build Their Own Road.  M. H. Cowan, the representative  of the American syndicate which is  opening up coal lands in the Pincher I  creek section, states that his syndi- |  cate will have a new railroad to  carry the output of their mines to  a market. "We do not expect the  C. P. R. will give us a"fair shake in  competition with the Crow's Nest  Coal Company, but we have the  money to make our industry a success and are prepared to build a  road altogether independent of the  C. P. R. and Great Northern if  necessity demands such a move. I  am just on my way through to  Livingstone after transacting some  business at Spokane. AVe have 40  men at work on the property and  are pushing development ahead  rapidly. Only one tunnel is started  but we five taking out coal constantly, though" not for shipping  purposes. Six months hence we  will be taking out two thousand  tons of coal daily, which is just  double the production of tho Crow's  Nest Coal Company.  Kootenay Valley Railway.  Bonner's Ferry Herald.  Arrangements are being made for  a through passenger service on the  Kootenay Valley railway, so agent  Casey informs us. Commencing in  about ten days, a through service  will be established between Spokane  and Sandon? The train will leave  Spokane about 8 a.m., reaching  Bonner's Ferry about noon, and  Sandon at 8:15 p.m. The train  leaving Sandon will depart at 7  a.m., connecting with the Kootenay  Valley railway at Kuskonook at  2:40 p.m., reaching Bonner's Ferry  at 5 p.m., and Spokane at 9:30 p.m.  These trains will connect with  steamers at Pilot Bay for Nelson.  The Nelsou passenger train on the  Spokane Falls & Northern railway  will be taken off and a mixed train  run on that road, the intention  being to handle all tho Nelson passenger traffic via Bonner's Ferry.

Fleutot  and reported to be very valuable.  -In his .'statement of claim Briggs  asks the court to declare that he is  entitled to a half interest in tho  claims or to order, as. an alternative, that the defendants incorporate a company under the statutes  of this.province to work, the property in'question and issue to him  one-half-of the capital stock.  Tlie claims are located on the  south fork of Kaslo creek which is  rapidly forging to the front-as a  mineral. district. The defendant,  Newswander, purchased from the  plaintiff the Monarch and the Two  Kids claims alleged to occupy the  same ground as the' Cork and Dublin, and Briggs alleges an agreement by which he was to receive a  block of ..stock in a company to be  formed to operate the claim. He  asserts, however, that defendants  allowed the Two Kids and Monarch  to lapse,and then had their own locations, r"tne. Dublin and Cork,  crown granted, and maintains that  in equity he is entitled to his interest in 'tlie ground. ,   .-  The Highlander mine at Ainsworth is to be equipped with a diamond drill .for the purpose of prospecting the face of the big tunnel  wliich is now in 1000 feet.
