NELSON:   FRIDAY MORNING NOVEMBER 16  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  -��5*1  THE ANGLO-AMERICAN COMMISSION  Boundary Lines and Regulation of Traffic on the Great  Lakes to Be Settled.  OTHER NEWS OF INTEREST FROM PROVINCE AND DOMINION  S'  Washington, November 15.���  ��� (������ >s have been taken for resuming  l 'if important work of the Anglo-  American commission, made up of  ��representatives of the United  States, Great Britain and Canada,  and consideration of the subject  now in progress probably will determine -within a few days what  course will be pursued. It is  understood the American commissioners wish to remove the possibility of such ineffectual results as  occurred at their last sitting. Tlie  indications are that this can be  done through  tho co-operation  of  the state department by omitting  tlie Alaskan boundary question  IVoni those to be considered, thus  removing the -chief . object* to  progress.  Tho purpose of tlie committee  is  to frame a new treaty between tlie  United   States .and  Great  Britain  covering    the    various    questions  arising along the Canadian  border,  i,hus disposing of a wide range of  controversy.    The questions before  l.lie commission are of long standing  . and  include  the  establishment  of  ,,he boundary between  Alaska and  British Columbia; the issues  over  t.he Behring Sea and  the  catcli  of  fiu* seals;   the unmarked boundary  between   Canada and  the United  ���States near  Passamaquay Bay  in  ,   Maine and at points between Wisconsin and Minnesota and Canada;  the northeast fisheries question, involving the rights of fishing in the  north Atlantic off .* Newfoundland  and other points ; the regulation of  the   fishing    rights  on   the" great  lakes;     alien   labor   immigration  across the Canadian American borders;   commercial   reciprocity between the two countries ; the regulation of the bonding system  by  which goods are carried in  bond  across   the   frontier  aud also  tho  regulation of traffic by international  railways and canals of the two countries; reciprocal mining privileges in  Klondyke, "British  North  America  and other points, wrecking and salvage on the ocean and great lakes  coasting waters;  the modification  of the treaty arrangement on  the  great lakes with a view to allowing  warships to be built' on the lakes  and then floated out to the ocean.  Progress has been made on some  of these questions and a practical  agreement reached  on   several  of  them, but in each case the settle-  ^ment-was-dependent-upon���a-dis-  posal of all of them.     With the  prospect of omitting Alaska from  the points involved the chances of  reaching   a   ready   agreement   on  the other points will   be   materially improved.  The personnel of the commission  is an unusually notable one. The  British government was represented  by the late lord Herschell, former  chancellor of the exchequer, but  his death shortly after the last adjournment leaves a vacancy and  although no appointment has been  made, the name of lord Alverstone,  better known as sir Richard Webster, is being mentioned.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, premier of  Canada, heads the Canadian representation, with sir Louis Da vies*,  minister of marine and fisheries and  the premisr of. Newfoundland  among his assistants. Senator  Charles Fairbanks of Indiana, is  the chairman of tlio Ameiican representation, witli ex-secretary John  W. Foster, reciprocity commissioner  John Kassou, ex-senator G. J. Faulkner of West Virginia/Mr. T. Jefferson Coolidge of Boston, and Sereno  Payne, chairman of the ways and  means committee, as associates.  competition of the two railway  companies. Tlie effect, too, will be  that freight consigned to Boundary  points and to Trail, coming from  Canadian and American points by  American railwaj's can now go on  from here to their destination without breaking bulk.

Rossland, November 15.���The  rival railways here, the Great Northern and Canadian Pacific, joined  tracks today. This is the outcome  of four years' rivalry.

A CORRUPT POLICE FORCE  . 1S72  .  1.77.-1  . l.GW  . 1,010  Prior,  THE CHIEF HIMSELF IS  NOT  EXEMPTED.  Dr. Blausman Accuses   Them   of Accepting: Bribes  and  Encouraging Criminals.  Washington,. November 15.���  Before the industrial commission in  session here today.Dr. David Blaus-  lein, superintendent of the educational alliance, described the details  of Jewish immigration. He took  up" the question of immorality:  among the people of the east side  of New York, and said that in the  last few years immorality had secured a hold in the tenement houses  of New York never before known;  that children .are used as agents for  lewd women and that it is impossible to suppress the practices because of the corruption in the police  force of New York. On account of  this condition it had been impossible to get even one case to court.  The witness said in reply to ques-  - tions~that_the���police-levy-tribute"  upon the persons engaged in the  immortality practices; that this  levy system extends to the Avhole  police force and that the saloon  keepers generally are employed as  intermediaries in this system.  "Why do.you not go to the chief  of police?" he was asked.  "We have gone," was the reply.:  "He, too, is in the conspiracy."  Mr. Blausman said the new residents were greatly impressed by  this defection on the part of the  police force and that it was having  its effect in causing them to form  unfavorable opinions of our government. On account of this condition  of affairs the new people, while confessing themselves better off physically because of their residence in  this country, generally express the  opinion that the moral conditions  are poorer than in Europe. Speaking of the sweat shops Dr. Blau-  man said many Jews were driven  to them because this system allows  them to observe their Sabbath  when the factories do not.  Tramps Ditch a Tram.  Bethel, Pennsylvania, November 20.���Tramps last night threw  open a switch on the Lehigh &  Lackawanna railroad ten miles  north of here and the expresss  from Bath, Pennsylvania, to this  city was derailed, running into  Monocaco creek, but not overturn--  ing.

The prisoner is a man of  30 years of age and is a native of  Woodstock, Ontario. His alleged  victim was a- Barnardo boy who  served for a short time as trumpeter in the mounted police at  Edmonton and latterly had been  working as .a laborer about Peterborough. A couple of years ago  Dando served time in the provincial  jail here for -.stealing cigars. Collins is in poor health and a physician was ealled-to see.'him yesterday. - ", .  Dando was killed in the Delphiue  hotel   at   Peterborough   about'''0  o'clock on the morning of October  9th. An hour previous to that time  Collins went into  Harry Munson's  store and said Dando ,had ��� been  to  his place.on "the previous night and  he wanted satisfaction.    ' Miinson  went to magistrate Collins*  office  with   Collins';' and   requested  tho  magistrate to) issue a warrant for  Dando's   .arrest.     Mr. Scovil sent  Collins to see- Lawyer Hugh Macdonald, but instead of doing this  Collins went to. tlie Delphiue where  Dando lived.". A-number  of men  were in the bar ,of the hotel and  heard Collins apply a vile epithet  to Dando.   He exhibited  an  ivory  handled revolver and left the bar  by a.door letiding^to'the stairs at  the    head "--of" '-which"' --Dando's  room    was . situated.        A     moment        later    .a      pistol      shot  rang out followed by-a scuffle and  another shot.   The" men from the  bar ran upstairs and found Dando  partly dressed- on   the   bed in a  dying condition.   He had been shot  through the lungs and groin, and  his trousers were burning around  -the second" wound.   Dando never  spoke, and ceased breathing a  moment or two after the witnesses arrived.   Suspicion immediately fell  on Collins, who was found a couple of  hundred yards away from the hotel  with blood streaming from his face.  He was arrested by J. J. Quinlivan,  barrister, and G. A. Starke, one of  the owners of the Delphine.    The  preliminary   examination followed  and on the strength' of the facts  brought out in evidence Collins was  committed for trial on the charge'  Since  mangled One of the butlers of the  restaurant car, who was slightly  injured, became suddenly insane  and walked to and fro amid the  wreckage singing at the top of his  voice.

The  restaurant car came into terrific  collision with the tender and rolled  down the embankment. It was  luncheon hour, and'out of 31 passengers in the train 30 were at luncheon.   The bodies wero   terribly  London, November 10.���The impression exists in most European  capitals that the illness "of emperor  Nicholas is more serious than it is  reported to be, but this is probably  based on the knowledge that the  czar's constitution is not strong  and is little likely to resist a serious  attack.  In Copenhagen tlie illness is attributed to overwork in view of  the Chinese crisis and there is also  a suspicion that hygienic conditions  and water supply at Livadia may  be faulty.  The dowager czarina receives  news by courier each day. Her departure from Fredensburg had;  been officially fixed for November  20th. Preparations have since  -been-made-for-her-to-leave-at-any-  moraent and the fact that she has  not started indicates that there is  no immediate danger.  It is feared, however, that even  if no complications ensue, the attack may be of long duration.  There is no news from St. Petersburg on the subject beyond the official bulletins which indicate that  the attack is" only slight, no high  temperature having yet been  reached.   -������ '"     '   Ouiteau's Widow to Marry.  CuiCAfio, November 15.���A license was issued for tho marriage  of Mrs. Anna Punmire and Enoch  Allen. Mrs. Dunmire was the  widow of Charles J.

Wolseley to Travel.  London, November 15.��� Lord  Wolseley, it is asserted, intends us  soon as the opportunity is offered,  to visit the scenes of his campaigns  in Canada (1807), South Africa  (1779), nnd Egypt (1SS2).  The construction of   roads  and  trails   in   the   district  under   the  jurisdiction of   government  agent  Turner is about completed.   During the   season just closing very  much has been accomplished in the  direction   of  opening  up   various  sections which have suffered in the  past through lack of facilities. The  principal undertaking in the vicinity of Nelson has  been the wagon  road on Forty-nine creek, .which is  yet unfinished; although foreman  Walby, who was in the city yesterday, states that he will complete  the work inside of two weeks. This  road, while only 3A miles in length,  taps one of   the   most important  sections of the great free milling  belt"west of Nel&on.    Several companies are operating on  the  creek  and have reached the stage where  they require machinery for further  development.   The road will  give  them .the facilities for  taking in  plant and will be one of the leading  factors in  the growth of the district.   The wagon- road does not,  however, serve the mineral properties on the head of the creek and  on the divide between Forty-nine  and Eagle creeks.   To open up this  section .a trail  is being built from  the end of the Granite road to the  head of the creek./ This work has  been under way for a week.  East of the city a number of men  have been employed. Eleven miles"  of trail was built up Nine-mile  creek to the divide where a number  of promising claims are located. As  a result of-this work many pros-:  .pectors arerworking-all winter-who;  would"otherwise have ~come~out till"  spring. On Duck creek in the Goat  River district seven miles of trail  was constructed. The creek is regarded as one of the leading sections of the divisions and the opening of the trail will have an important bearing on its development.  The Goat River trail was also ex-  terded six miles and four miles of  road   was built between  Rykert*s��  and Creston.   Seven miles of trail*  was built on Porcupine creek to theji"  summit, connecting with the Midge��  creek   country..

One Good Chinaman.  London, November 15.���The Rev.  Evan Morgan, the last foreigner to  leave Sian Fu, has arrived here.  His life and the lives of the other  missionaries in Shen Si province  were saved by governor Tuan, a  kinsman of the - notorious prince  Tuan. (Governor' Tuan, when he-  received a decree from Pekin to kill  all foreigners, warned Mr. Morgan  and-hiscolleagues���and-gave-them  an escort. Mr. Morgan describes  the governor as a "brave, friendly  and noble jnan, who ��at the risk of  his life saved us." The only foreigners left in Shen Si are 20 Presbyterians, mostly Italians, and 12  nuns, who are occupying a sort of  fort near Sian Fu, defended by  machine guns. It is thought probable that father Hugh of London is  in the fort and possibly it is to relieve this party that field marshal  count von Waldersee's expedition  under colonel count Von Warten-  berg lias gone from Pekin. The  German move towards Kalgnan  and the combined march down the  Grand canal indicate, the Rev. Mr.  Morgan says, a movement of the  allied troops to Sian Fu.  May Fight Again.

Replying to an address froni the-  mayor and corporation of Burnley,  he reciprocated the wish that American friendship might never be  disturbed. "I venture to express  the belief," he said, "that, future .]  national conflicts will be in the  (jelds of industry and commerce  rather than in the field of battle  and that any nation which indulges  in tlio destructive luxury of war  will fall sadly behind iu tho peaceful arts." Mr. Choate added that it  would not do to rely too much upon  Anglo-Saxon supremacy, as Germany was making a bold bid. The  United States, however, had no intention, he declared, of being loft  behind.  The Official! Version.  Bkki.in, November 15.���An official version of tho recent affray between German and British soldiers  at Shang-Hai says that two Germans had a row with the landlord  of a tea house and a British police  patrol arrested the Germans.

Licenses will fall short about $1000,  the estimate being $13,500, and the  collections are only $12,500 up to  date.   Sewer rates will exceed the  estimate of .$1500.    Road tax colj  lections will not be up to the estimate by at least $1000.   The scavenger department, instead of'making a profit of $750, as was estimated, will run: that much behind,  The   other    sources    of    revenue,1  namely, weigh scale receipts, dog  1 .axes,   police   court   fines,  miscel  laneous supplies sold, etc., will be  up to the estimates. The expenditures vary almost as much. For  the fire department, the expenditures will exceed the estimates by  $1000. The police department expenditures will not be above the  estimate of $4500. Legal expenses  overrun the'estimate by $2000, all  of which is a legacy from last year.  Printing and stationery, public  buildings and grounds and salaries  will be well within the-$9450 estimated. Maintenance of sewers,  water works and electric light  systems will exceed the estimate of  $0000 by about $2500, owing to the  costref the new "dam- at the'electric  light reservoir being wholly charged  to maintenance account. The estimate for miscellaneous '��� purposes  was $3500. This will be exceeded  by $2000 at least, owiug'to the disbursements on-acconnt of the smallpox scare and the unusually large  drafts-on account of fire-ravages at  Sandon and Kuskonook. But, on  the*whole, seeing- that the council  had to make- provision for over  $23,000 debts ��� contracted in 1899,  the-showing this year will not be  at all a'had one. Next year's council will nob be troubled with tlie  presentation'and payment of bills  about whieh they know little or  nothing. The indebtedness that  they will have to deal with will all  beat one place,-and there will be  sufficient assets,- in. tho way of  arrears of-taxes and'rates, to offset  the indebtedness.'  POLITICAL POINTERS.  Some-good Conservative has been  babbling-party secrets to the Evening! Miner of Nelson. As neither  thesurnameoior-the Christian name-  of anyone-prominent'in the party  in Nelson begins witli a "B," there  is-no-chance to make a "Babbling-  Brooke" pun. There might be a  chance to-use the letter "W,"'but  there are-said to be no "Whispering  RWillies" in the- party in Nelson  either:    The ill-advised utterances of-some  of the Liberal push- in Nelson ��� are  hurting-the-candidate-of the party.  This is-a free- country, and one  class of-men-have as much-right to  be-politicians as another class.

McLean, whose speech from the  beginning was constantly interrupted, stated that James Wilks on  various occasions had advised that  W. A, Galliher, the Liberal candidate, be withdrawn, so that the  Liberals and the Labor party might  unite against the Conservatives,  the common enemy. When the  answer came: Why not withdraw-  Mi'. Foley? Mr. Wilks answer- was  that that was impossible and, rendered so hy the ignorance of many  of Mr. Foley's supporters. Amid a  tremendous uproar Mr, Wilks de--  nied the statement. Tho speaker  said he could produce witnesses,  and called on some of tlie audience,  one or two of whom rose, but were  shouted down. Mr. McLean's  veracity has been formally challenged by Mr. AVilks, and the former intends to secure affidavits in  support of his statement.  SATURDAY, NOV. 17  at 2 o'clock.

Since the. great discoveries of  . piM i�� the Klondike the world has  I niconic so familiar with tlie won*  <!'-i ful opening up of. that country,  ittiil fche-enterpr.se of the transpor-  cuion companies1 in providing  mc'ins for travelers to get in ��nd  nut of the north in comfort and  i-ven luxury*that it was no surprise  when the government of Canada  ���announced its intention of building  a telegraph line to Dawson. The  telegraph line from Dawson lo  White Horse, and from there to  Skagway has now been in working  order for some time, but a telegraphic message from Dawson out  must come by mail from Skagway  down the coast. It is no news that  the government telegraph party  under the superintendence of .1. B.  Charleson has been constructing a  line over what is called the old  telegraph trail from Quesnel to  Ha/elLon to connect with'the Atlin-  White llorse-Dawson line, giving  communication with the outside,  and connection with the C. 1\ R.  telegraph system at Ashcroft.  It is with this old telegraph  trail, and what it means, that this  article has to do.  Early in the fifties, the necessity  of telegraphic communication -between the United * States- and  Europe, as the business. relations  between the two countries increased  so rapidly, was made- manifest, and-  cvery scheme at all feasible was*  suggested * by some * promoter or  another. For several years a man,  then in the thirties,-named--Cyrus  West Field, had been--advocating/  the laying-of-a submarine-cable-between- this- continent- and Europe.  He had been laughed at and looked  upon as a visionary, but with, the  determination of a-genius,- stuck-to  the idea.until capital becoming interested an attempt was made" to  lay.the first Atlantic cable in 1S57.  .'���'The atte^jik* was a failure, the  cable parting in mid-ocean.  The civil war in the UnitedStates,  aud the coiisequentfinancial negotiations with the money centres in the  (Jnited Kingdom and'-on.the-conti  nent of Europe rendered-telegraphic communication absolutely necessary. Time and again the success  of either parties to the conflict de--  ���pended upon.the funds for theconr  duct of- the war, and payment of  the soldiers, and these funds had to  be obtained-in the European money-  centres. Immense amounts were  borrowed, and after the war was  over Cyrus W. Field again succeeded in inducing capitalists to take  hold of the Atlantic, cable scheme,  and to make another attempt to  ~carry itTthrongliT- Tliis:was"irriS0o7  and it was again unsuccessful.  Electrical experts throughout the  world then came to the- conclusion  that the thing was impossible.  That the idea of connecting Amer-  if?a ai>d Europe by submarine wire  was a chimera, and from- the contour of the ocean ^ed was" an impossibility: Still the necessity of  telegraphic communication remained, aud other ways were  searched to obtain it. It was decided eventually to run the wire  overland, westward across the continent to British Columbia to go  north to the - narrowest. part of the  Bering straits, cross there, and  build down: through Siberia into  ii.ussia, from whence the principal  cities of Central and Southern  Europe could be reached. This  scheme was takeiv up eagerly.  What is now the Western Union-  Telegraph Company took hold of it.  The route was necessarily through  British Columbia,:, as the Cariboo  gold fields had caused an excitement similar to the present Klondike movement, and the impelial  government' had '���'���'-.built- the great  Cariboo road.  So it was, that in April in 1805,  the first work wasstarted, tho line  being/laid:from the city of New  Westminster. Therq-. were not  many inhabitants in British Columbia in these- days' but what few  were in the Royal City then turned  out en masse to see the first spade  full of earth thrown out, and the  flrst hole dug, and they cheered  loudly when the first pole was  shouldered tip and placed in position to hold the wire that was to  transmit the lightning- message'  /wi'inti  the  world.

There are three men alive., today  and residents of British Columbia,  who took an active part in the construction of that telegraph line.. It  was called then.the "Collin's Overland," and the building went on  from both ends. Men were working in far-off Siberia, but it is with  the brief story of the British  Columbia part that wc have to do.  J. Maclnre, the well known  farmer of Matsqui, who, by the  way, is father of Mrs.' J. C. Mc-  Lagan of this.city, was locating: engineer of the line. His duties were-  to select the* best route; to pick'.out  likely places for telegraph stations,  to avoid costly mountain work���in  fine to give the general and particular direction of the line. T. D.  Conway, now of Chemainus, Avas-  another who then helped to make  history. His brother was superintendent of construction. The other:  British Columbian, who had to,do  with-the-line was J.- McCutcheon, a  well-to-do farmer of Chilliwack,  and the C. P. R. telegraph: agent at  that place. The last-named gentleman-has the unique experience.of  sending messages today at the end  of the nineteenth century over part  of the line which he helped to build  some-.thirty-five years ago. The,  line was strung from- New Westminster along the' Eraser to- Ashcroft; from there to Quesnel in the  Cariboo' country, and almost"  directly north.  The construction department  reached Fort Stager, a point,'a- few  miles north of Hazleton in August,  186(>: For in 1866 the great Cyrus  AV". Field succeeded in again securing capital enough to make another attempt to lay a cable Hinder  the-water -of- the broad Atlantic,  and this time the .attempt was successful. The Atlantic cable: as .we  have it today became an accomplished '��� fact, and messages flashed  under the ocean between America  and Europe.' Even the parted  cable of the-year, before was picked  up in mid-ocean and the ends  spliced together.- So there was no  necessity for the overland line.  Word was rushed to New : Westminster 'to stop construction, and  to show how slowly news got out to  British Columbiain those days the  building-pautyihadsgot^ovei^sixtyu  miles of the line built overr rough  country from the time thenorders  were sent from;the.head, .offlbes until it reached them by>wire from  New Westminster. Work was  stopped at once, and leaving JMiv  McOutcheon with an assistant in  charge of supplies at Fort Stager,  the most of the party made their'  toilsome way back to civilisation.  Mr. McCutcheon stayed at his post*  during the winter of '00 and������* '67,  when it was 'decided to abandon  the line from Quesnel i lor tli, ami  he was recalled.  On account of the local business  in the Cariboo the line eastwards  from Quesnel to Barkerville and  Richfield, and southwesterly to Ashcroft along the Cariboo road wa��  kept up by the government, and is  in use to this day. Only some 50  miles of wire have been replaced,  for the wire was not galvanized iii  those days, and that part of it wore  out and was destroyed, When-'the-  government party constructing the  present line to tlie far north were  on the Ashcroft trail they* came  across-and followed the old abandoned line from Quesnel, and used  it in sending messages, and also in  parts as a portion of the main line  they were eonstructin g.

The directors of the general hospital desire to acknowledge a generous contribution of $">S from the  Dominion Express Company. An  operating table and other supplies  for the institution were carried  gratis from Toronto.  The auction sale on Saturday of  water color paintings from the  brush of Mrs. J. A.

The granite quarry opened by  John Gunn near Roberts' -ranch  will be in operation shortly. Transportation fjvcilities have been arranged for and tho derricks and  other plant are in position. Shipping will probably be started next  week.  The report is current that the  reform movement instituted in  Sandon last month is now .a dead  issue and that gambling games 'are  running wide open again. The result of the reform wave was, however, to drive a number of tin-horn  sports out of town.  Tom Kinehan, office boy at the  C. P. R. freight sheds, narrowly  escaped severe injury yesterday.  He was crossing a slowly moving  freight train when, his foot was  caught between the draw-heads and  crushed about the toes. Had his  foot been in an inch or two further  it would have been hopelessly  mangled.  Ernest Mansfield has commenced  action in the supreme court to recover $05,000 damages from the directors of the company which is  operating the Camp Mansfield properties. He claims $14,000 is due  him for advances to cover the cost  of work on the claims and $50,000  for breach of contract on the part  of defendants in not forwarding  him funds to pay for work ordered  under their instructions aud as a  result of which breach he was  forced to undergo a term of imprisonment.
