 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  ritmne  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR,  NELSON:   FRIDAY MORNING NOVEMBER 23  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  EXTREMELY ELUSIVE MOTHER LODE  Prospectors  in  the  Rover  Creek  Section   Vainly  Endeavor  to  Locate It.  PLACER POSSIBILITIES AND OTHER MINING  MATTERS  The   Rover creek section has a  genuine romance in the shape ..of a  mother lode which has defied the  researches of prospector's*, for years.  Any mining,mail familiar with the  l(      country believes in the mother-lode  theory.and believes that some- day  l'? ^ the parent vein will be found and  "���*''    its lucky locator transferred into a  millionaire   instanter.     As   Rover  creek is staked from source to mouth'  -it is probable someone has the great  ledge located arid that further work  will reveal its whereabouts. In any  event Rover creek will always be a  good section, as a number of properties live showing up well.  The mother lode theory is based  on the fact.that float as rich as anything found in the wide world, has  been taken from the bed of Rover  '-.-reek.' A number of these specimens can be seen in Nelson, one for  instance at- Vanstone's drug store,  though there aro many richer  samples than this particular piece.  This rich float is literally studded  with gold and would run many  thousands of dollars to tlie ton.  Many specimens have been found,  and the conclusion very .naturally  is that somewhore along the creek  is the vein from which tlie iloat  was ei'Oded. Three years ago there  was a rush to the section and the  country was prospected and staked,  but no 'one ever- got-!the mother*  lode or. any ore remotely resembling in richness the float from tlie  creek.-- The great trouble encoun-  . tered in the search for the elusive  veiii;is that tlie wash is from 30 to-  (50 feet deep .and it is next to impossible for the average prospector  to work under these conditions.  Therefore the Rover creek mother  lode remains undiscovered, and  . what is probably the richest free  gold vein in British Columbia has  yet to be uncovered.  Work was recently suspended  for the year on the Whitewater  group on Rover creek. The season's operations were satisfactory,  and the property has a splendid  showing. Further development  will be carried out next spring.  Placer Mining Near Nelson.  One of the very few points anywhere within many miles of Nelson  where placer mining is followed  with any measure of system is on  Rover creek. Three partners have  had a camp a couple of miles  above the mouth of the creek and  Jiaxe^=worked=iall~summer.i==i:Itys.  stated they have netted $90" a  month for. the whole summer and  that the trio will remain on the  creek for the winter. The creek  was originally washed by the  French Canadians who worked up  the Columbia river after the Forty-  nine rush to California. These  men came in a quarter of a century  -, ago, worked the creeks draining the  '' free milling belt of Nelson and  passed on years before Nelson was  thought of. They took the cream  off the.placer ground, but left much  gold behind, as . according to the  traditions of the 'camp, the forty-  niners would work- no sand in  which they could not see gold. The  days of the big placer strikes iu the  Nelson district are gone, but it is  not at all unlikely that .with modern apparatus for saving fine gold  a number of creeks might be  worked to advantage.  It is reported that a lone miner,  a survivor of the great Cariboo  stampede," is';working the headwaters of Hall creek with good results. The old miner comes into  Hall with a little sack of dust sufficient to purchase enough supplies  for a couple of weeks and a moderate supply of "red eye" and then  travels back to his placer claim  without divulging any particulars  ���as to his lay. The general impression is that * he is doing well. Up  to last year the bed of Forty-nine  ���creek was washed by Chinamen,  but so far as is known no placer  gold was taken out of the stream  last summer. There is an impression among mining men who have  gone over the ground, that the  ���creek has changed its course some  what at some period and that if the  ancient bed was located and worked  the results might be startling.  A Splendid Showing.  . ' ^Vork on the Juno group is progressing steadily under the direction" of - Charles Parker, the company's engineer, and the showing  on the property at the present time  is very gratifying. -Mr. Parker  spent Wednesday at the Juno and  returned with a niii-hber of specimens from the workings in which  free gold is found in every direction.- The crew is drifting on what  is termed the Venus vein and are  in 00 feet. The ore removed is  carefully saved on the dump, and,  as it assays over $20, the work to  date has more than paid for itself.  The tunnel is to .be continued 890  feet to tap the Juno vein, which  crosses at right angles. This ledge  is ten feet in width and averages  $10 to $12 across.  Struck a Rich Pocket.  One of the Wilson Brothers came  down from the "Birds Eye mine  yesterday and confirmed the report  as to the discovery of a pocket  carrying highi.values in free gold.  The strike was made in the drift at  the foot of the shaft and the ore  was sacked up at once. Work has  been suspended on tho Birds Eye  for the present, one reason for this  being the extreme difficulty of  .keeping the trail open. It has' not  been decided whether the property'  will be shut down.fo'* the balance of  the Avinter or work; recommenced  in a .few days. .  A, New'Wagon Road.    -  It is stated that work will be  commenced about December 1st on  a new wagon road four miles long  from Slocan City to Lemon creek.  This will eventually connect with  the Lemon creek road and forms  another link in the network of  roads with which the country is  being covered. It is expected also  that the road will materially benefit Slocan City business men. The  town has been more active during  the last year than at any time since  the boom several years ago, and  with the properties opening up on  Springer and Ten-mile creeks the  advance should be even more  marked next year.  Position of the French Fleet.  , Paris, November 22.���The admiral in command of the French  fleet in Chinese waters cables"that  _he^has,divided his ^vessels into three:  more death, that of Clayton Tucker,  has occurred near Columbia, making a total in that .section of 24.  Three members of the Ellis family  at'Walnut lake were killed. - Clarence' Thomas living near Corinth,  Mississippi, was carried away by  the wind and no trace of him has  been found. In Arkansas six dead  and 25 injured have been reported.  The victims are principally negroes.  The streams are"swollen and altogether the storm section presents a  scene of terrible devastation. "  squadrons in accordance with instructions to make the best showing  of the French flag. The first  squadron will be stationed in the  gulf of Pe Che Li, which will be  the base of operations, one vessel  at Nagasaki and another at Che-  Foo. The second squadron will be  stationed at Shang-Hai, its duty  being the surveillance of the Yang  Tse Kiang and its contiguous  islands and the coast as far as Foo  Chow. The third squadron will  .cover the coast from Fod Chow to  tlie Tonquin frontier.  A British Dreyfus Case.  London, November 22.���The extraordinary interest taken here in  the Dover canteen scandal, which  has been dubbed tbe -'British Dreyfus case," was accentuated today  by the acquittal of master gunner  Acheson, accused of initiating a  conspiracy against second lieutenant Beckett of the Royal Garrison  Artillery. The latter was acquitted  on October 13th of embezzling canteen money and Acheson demanded  a trial by court martial on the allegation 'that he had hatched a  plot. His acquittal is taken to  mean the reopening of the charges  against Beckett. As a coincidence  DuMaurier's son was selected as a  member of the court martial,- while  Beckett's father was a colleague of  DuMaurier of the staff of Punch.  Denounce the Edict.  London, November 23.���Nine  ministers, says the Pekin correspondent of the Morning Post, wiring Wednesday, have written long  letters denouncing the punishment  edict and declaring that Tung Fu  Hsiang must be punished. Dr.  Mumm yon Schwartzehsteiu told  Li Hung Chang' that the, foreign  powers themselves must punish the  guilty officials. It is reported that  Chinese troops have repulsed a German expedition, but no details  have been received.  AFFAIRS IN THE DOMINION  C P. R. STEAMSHIPS WILL  CALL  AT VICTORIA  The Phaeton May Follow the Pheasant  to Panama Waters-.General  News Items.  Emperor Improving.  London, Noveniber 23.���Better  news has been received of the emperor's condition at Copenhagen, A  courier has arrived with news that  the doctors believe the crisis has  passed.  PROTEST FROM AMERICANS  ATTITUDE OF THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT UNSATISFACTORY.  Think It Is Simply Fighting for Time  find That the Rebellion Will Be  ."-  Renewed in the Spring.  Disasters of the Storm.  Nashville, Tennessee, November 22.���Latest reports from the  districts swept by Tuesday's storm  show that seven persons lost their  lives in Williamson county.    One  New York, November 22.���A  copy of the following letter addressed by V. C. Lymau, secretary  of the American Association of  China, to- W. W. Rockhill, United,  States ��� commissioner, tjo -China, has  been received here:  Shang-Hai October 23rd, 1900.���  Hon. W. W. Rockhill, United States  commissioner to China.���Sir: Being strongly impressed with the  critical situation and the unsatisfactory nature of the attitude 'presented by the Chinese government  at this time, the committee of this  association desires to present its  views with reference to the following matters which we trust will appear to you to be of sufficient importance to warrant the transmission of the substance thereof to the  state department by telegraph.  1. This committee most strongly  deplores the appointment to high and  important government positions in  the central and southern provinces  of reactionary men who have given  the strongest evidence of their  sympathies=with=the=whole=Boxer=  movement and uprising and who  are thus appointed not only to  counteract the influence of the  friendly provincial officials from  the viceroys down, but for the purpose of eventually inciting the  people through this whole district  to a renewed uprising of vastly increasing magnitude against the  powers.  2. Believing that the isolation of  the court at Si Ngan Hu means a  dangerous delay in the conduct of  negotiations and the impossibility  of bringing them to a satisfactory  conclusion we believe that strong  measures should be employed to enable the emperor to escape from  the dangerous influences of the reactionaries by whom he is surrounded and to facilitate his return  to Pekin or such other place as he  may be accessible to the foreign  representatives.  3. Wo would most strongly urge  and represent that the imperial  edict denouncing prince Tuan and  others high in rank is both insincere and meaningless, that it was  issued merely in an attempt to delude the powers and without the  slightest intention that it should be  carried out.  4. We sincerely believe that'  every function of the central government is now being employed  with a view of renewing the movement against the foreigners in the  near future, that it is fighting for  time, with the hope that by next  spring the whole empire will act as  a unit in a final attempt to drive  out the foreigners. I have the  honor to be, sir, yours respectfully,  V, C. Lyman, Secretary,  Montr ia Ala, November 22.���An  official of the steamship department  of the C. P. R, today denied the report published in Pacific coast  papers that the C. P.'R. would fight  the Great Northern Oriental steamship line. He declared- there was  no truth in the story- that the C. P.  R. boats might not call at Victoria  going up, as the Gulf of Georgia  route   was not practicable.     The  company might cut-down the time'  by twenty-four or thirty hours, but  that had not been definitely decided.    Weil-Known Canadian Dead.  Montreal, November ' 22.���Wm.  Evans, a Avell-knp wn Canadian  seedsman, died this afternoon, aged  80 years. ....  Ottawa Recount.  Ottawa, November 22.���Tho recount in Ottawa was* concluded today. The result is the cutting  down of the majority of Belcourt,  Liberal, from 20 to' 17.  A Mamnfotn Hotel.  Toronto,^ November 22.���Work  was begun today tearing, down the  old buildings on the site of a new  hotel costing a-million and a half  dollars to be erected'here.  May Follow* the ^Pheasant.  Victoria, November 22.���II.M.S.  Phaeton, flagship. of commander'  Fleet, senior .officer of the Pacific  fleet, has\_beenyordered by the  admiraltiy'tVoe keptvih readiness  to follow H.M. S.*: Pheasant, whieh  sailed thisinorning.to Panama; ��� '-  Insurance Company to Build.  Montreal, November 22.���The  Liverpool and Loudon and Globe  Insurance Company has purchased  the premises adjacent to their present building, paying $60,000, or  oyer $21 a square foot. The intention is to erect a new eight or ten  story building.  Barns and Contents Burned.  Canning, Nova Scotia, November  22.���The big barns of R. G. Kinsman & Company were burned last  night with their contents. They  contained nearly one hundred head  of cattle, twelve horses, 350 tons of  hay and $2000 worth of farm  machinery. Insurance $10,000,  about half the loss.  Lace Workers' Troubles.  ==WASiilNGTON,=-November-=22i���=  Secretary Gage and assistant secretary Taylor today gave a second  hearing to the legal representatives  of the lace workers imported by Dr.  Dowie for employment at the lace  establishment which he projected  at Zion, Wisconsin. The lace  workers, four in number, accompanied by their families, were detained at Philadelphiaon the ground  that their admission was a violation  of the alien contract labor law. It  was contended by the lace workers  that they were establishing a new  industry. The representatives of  the lace workers in this country  denied this and after two hearings  before special commissioner Rodgers  in Philadelphia the latter decided  against their admission. The case  was then appealed to the secretary  of the treasury and last Saturday  he gave a hearing at which Samuel  W. Packard of Chicago, Dr. Dowie's  attorney, advanced legal authorities for the admission of the lace  workers.  Clinton Rodgers Woodruff of  Philadelphia represented the Amalgamated Society of Lace Workers.  There were also present Mr. Gom-  pers, president of the American  Federation of Labor; commissioner  of immigration. Powderly, James  Stevenson and John Paulison, officers of the lace workers' association and several others. Mr. Woodruff argued that the facts elicited  before commissioner Rodgers upon  which the latter's decision was  based could not be controverted.  An affidavit offered by Mr. Packard  to prove that there were no operatives in this country who could  work the Nottingham machines was  ruled out. Mr. Woodruff's argument was largely a legal one based  upon the decisions of the courts.  Associated Press Directors.  New York, November 22.���The  election of fifteen directors of the  Associated Press was held yesterday. As the balloting was very  heavy the result was not known  last night. The count shows the  election of the following gentlemen:  Frank B. Noyes, the Washington  Star; Charles W. Knapp, the St.  Louis Republic; Victor F. Lawson,  Chicago Record and Daily News;  Stephen Omeara, Boston Journal;  Albert J. Bahr, Pittsburg Post;  Harvey W. Scott, Portland Oregon-  ian and Portland Telegram; G. E.  Thomson, St. Paul Dispatch; W." L.  McLean, Philadelphia Evening Bulletin, and Don C. Seitz of New York.  The six others are as yet unknown.  Defeated the Rebels.  Colon, Colombia, November 22.���  Via Galveston.���The rebel forces at  Buenaventure have been completely crushed by the Colombian  government troops, who captured  three cannon and two generals.  General Albana, the governor of  Panama, personally directed the  operations on board the British  steamship Taboga, seized by the  Colombian authorities, and saved  the situation .there.  BULLER PRAISES THE TROOPS  SAYS  NO ARMY EVER BEHAVED  BETTER.  Some German Critics Sent Him a Lot  of Old Iron, Which Was Significant of Uselessness.  London, November 22.���Speaking  this evening at. a banquet in his  honor, general Bnller defended the  British army against the charges of  ravishing women and of barbarous  Vtreatmen t^ of. Boers . declarin g, ,that  "all were false. He said "that in  three cases of alleged assault upon  women that were brought to his  attention.two of the accused were  Hottentots following the forces and  the third was a local Kaffir. "No  army   ever behaved better," said  general Buller.  There is no doubt that the fact  that the war has come to a crisis  induces severe treatment, but why  is it so ? Are the real patriots  fighting for the country? The  whole people whom we know as  Boers either have already surrendered or are prisoners'/or are doing  their level best to surrender.  People left in the field are either  mercenaries or bandits."  General Buller qnoted an Orange  River Colony judge .as saying that  the moment when the men in the  =field=ceased=to=be=paid=the=war-  would end.  They Sent Him Old Iron.  London, November 22.���General  Buller, the former commander of  the British troops in Natal, during  a speech today at Exeter on the  occasion of a sword of honor being  presented to him said he had received-a quantity of old iron sent  by German critics while trying to  relieve Ladysmith. He said the  laugh was oh his side, because when  the iron came he was inside Lady-  smith. There is an old saying in  Germany "He should.be thrown  upon the old iron heap," meaning  that the person referred to is of no  good. It may be presumed that  the sending of old iron to general  Buller by his German critics had  reference to this saying.  Died From Morphine.  New York, November 22.���An  overdose of morphine taken to relieve suffering caused by an overindulgence in liquor today ended  the life of Dr. Robert Acton, a physician and well-known football  player of the Harvard team in 1893.  He died in the Presbyterian hospital.           Still Unsettled.  Lonoon, November 22.���Contrary  to expectations the racing calendar  today did not give the decision of  the stewards of tho jockey club in  the case of tlie charges brought by  lord Durham against Leister 'Reiff  the American jockey, and it was  learned that the investigation is  still in progress.  KRUGEB'S RECEPTION IN FRANCE  He   Is   Enthusiastically   Received   by   the   Residents  of Marseilles.  SOME COIN THROWING ALMOST PRECIPITATED A RIOT  Paris, November 21.���The program of the welcome to be extended to president Kruger is held  in abeyance for the scrutiny of the  president. The whole of the second  floor of the Hotel Scribe has been  retained for the use of Mr. Kruger  and his suite.  Marseilles, November 21.���Mr.  Kruger bore the sea voyage very  well. Many of his friends say he  looks in better health than before  he left Pretoria. The heavy gale  and rough cross seas which the  Gelderland encountered in the  Mediterranean, however, proved too  much for the distinguished traveler  yesterday and for the first time  since he started for Europe he was  seasick, but Mr. Kruger showed  little effects of his seasickness today and ate a hearty luncheon.  Afterwards he received delegations from various municipalities  and societies in the hall of the  hotel. This proved to be a severe  trial, as Mr. Kruger had to listen to  a couple of hours of eloquent but to  him unintelligible addresses in  French, and he left the hall visibly  fatigued. He retired to his apartments for an hour's rest, and  Michael Davitt delivered a short  jiddress on behalf of the Irish people, which evoked most enthusiastic  applause from those present, during which cries of "Vive la Ireland-  aise" resounded. The gist,of Mr.  Davitt's address was interpreted to  Mr. Kruger, who is pleased with  his reception. Mr. Kruger only replied in the hall of the hotel to the  first address delivered by Mr..  '.Thouree,- president of the Marseilles  commission, 'who_ presented - the  traveler with a symbolical bronze  group entitled "The Defence of  Home." Mr.     Kruger's     reply  breathed the same determination  to resist to the end as expressed in  his speech at the landing stage. He  said the situation was terrible for  the Boers, but it was no wise inextricable or definitive. They now  appeared to be crushed by numbers  but he was still firm in the hope  "that the reign of the sword would  ere long be overthrown by that of  justice."  , Oom Paul received a great ovation  from" his hearers. Although the  former president had retired for  rest, the crowd still remained in  front of the hotel aud horse cars  and carriages could only pass with  difficulty. The crowd called upon  the party throwing sous from the  balcony^of^the^hoteWto^take^ofl^  their hats as Mr. Kruger passed,  but the seemingly plausible explanation was given that they were  Englishmen and did not understand  French and foolishly threw small  coin into the crowd, which they  had frequently done on similar  occasions in England. The Frenchmen misunderstood this and imagined the sous were thrown insultingly at Kruger, hence a tumultuous crowd endeavored to invade  the hotel. The police prevented  this, but the hotel people were  obliged to close the doors and late  this afternoon an unfriendly mob  was still stationed before the building which was cordoned by police.  Marseilles, November 22.���Today proved a triumph for Mr. Kruger.   An assembly of such  masses,  exceeding even most sanguine esiti-  mate, may be partly   explained by  the ceremonious obsequies of the  bishop of Marseilles, including an  imposing religious procession  from  the cathedral.     Kruger delivered  his manifesto in a low voice, but  one vibrating with emotion, accompanied by energetic gestures of the  right hand.    Tlie last sentence of  his declaration was  uttered with a  vigor, and decision, which  bore out  his reputation as the incarnation of  iron, will  and stubborn  resistance.  His mere delivery of a declaration  of   such    far-reaching   importance  testifies to tlie independence of his  character, as it came as a surprise  to oven  his  intimate  political  advisors, who  up  to the last were in  ignorance of his determination.  He announced to the world this  morning that the Boers would be a  free people or die and tho faces of  f.  >  j  -     7?1  -��*'  * -"v-i-I  the men about him���Fischer, Wes-  sels, Grubler, and the other Boer  representatives���bore the look of  fearless determination reflecting  the spirit that Mr. Kruger declared  animated every man, woman and  child in the Transvaal.  The unfortunate occurrence at  the hotel on the main boulevard  alone marred the character of the  demonstration, which up to that  moment had been unanimously and  exclusively a tribute of sympathy  and admiration. "Vive Kruger,"  "Vive les Boers" and "Vive la  liberte" were the cries that formed'  a hurricane of cheering and *swept  over the city. Unfortunately the  highly reprehensible foolishness* of  a half dozen persons in throwing  small coins into the crowd as Kruger  passed acted like magic in conjuring  an anti-British outburst "which it  needed all the promptitude and  energy of the police to prevent becoming a serious disturbance.  Everyone' expressed astonishment  at the robust and  healthy appearance of Mr. Krnger,' considering'his  advanced ago.    He walked firmly,  leaning but lightly upon his cane'  when he crossed the landing "stage '  to the landau -in  waiting, containing Dr. Leyds and MM. Pouliat and *  Thouree.    Tiie landau was followed  by five  carriages  containing Boer -  officials, and these were followed  by six others convoying'the officers J  of the Gelderland and the^members :���V"?^  of   the   Marsqilles^n-eception 'eom-'^^  mittee,'" all   forming .'a   nVqct-s.-ion "���-,"<$.  headed   by��� .various   societies   with .^rr*Jf^  handsome banners and' escorted by'":. ��  a large police force: -    ;-"���;-?,' .nr- , 'i^\%  Mr. Kruger  repeatedly ackuow- k   '- .  ledged   the    acclamations''of .the  crowds oir the 'sidewalks and -bal-*  conies of houses,  black with sight--  seers   waving   handkerchiefs. ��� At  soveral     points    along    the   route  bouquets were pre*-ented him  and  on the balcony of the military club"  stood a  group  of officers in   gala  uuiforms who heartily joined in the"  ovation.    On arriving at the hotel*  Mr. Kruger's ears weregreeted with  the strains of a Boer hymn, played  by a local   band, while the standard bearers drew up in  two  rank's  at   the   entrance and   waved   the1  standards   as   Mr.    Kruger ."bareheaded     passed   v between   to   his,  apartments.  Soon after in response  to  a   thunderous  ovation   he   appeared on the balcony and  repeatedly bowed, but as some  ten   minutes   elapsed    without   a,  sign  of  abatement  in   the   enthusiasm he  spoke a few words which were interpreted JutoJSren^ Leyds_  and were followed by a renewal of  frenzy. Finally, to testify his gratitude he took in his hands a French  tri-color from the balcony between  the Transvaal and Free State flags  and pressed it to his   heart again  and again.    The enthusiastic people  cheered him until he retired to his  rooms, which: he found  half filled  with   bouquets and garlands presented by his admirers. .  After luncheon and a little repose  Mr, Kruger descended to the hall of  the hotel, where he received the  delegations. He sat in a gilded  chair immediately in front of the  fireplace, Dr. Leyds and Messrs.  Fisher and Wessels standing near  him. Dr. Leyds briefly interpreted  the addresses of the various  speakers; but it was evident that  Mr. Kruger was fatigued and found  it a great strain to follow the gestures of orators speaking a language  unintelligible to him. While these  wero in progress his eyes frequently  roamed about the room, but ho  listened attentively with his hand  to his ear as Dr. Leyds gave  him the gist of what had  been said. Eventually the effort  becoming too fatiguing, he asked  that other addresses be presented  to him- in writing and then withdrew again to his apartments where  he passed tho evening quietly, receiving no one.

Unsuccessful Holdup.  St.  Louis, November 22.���News  wasreceived here last night* of the  holding up of 'the-Iron" Mountain  Cannonball passenger train northbound, at Gifford, Arkansas,  a few  miles this side of Melvern Junction..  The large safe was   charged ' five  times with dynamite, each explosion  making   a  terrific noise and  tearing off portions of the car.    A  large hole was bored--into the.door,  of the safe, but an entrance  could  not be "effected. Tlierobbers finally,  announced thatthey had no more  dynamite and   then gave up the"  task of forcing the- door.     Then,  picking up the local express boxes,  several packages, they ran to their-  horses,   which -had   been' hitched-  near by," and  hurried' away.   No.  attempt- was made, to disturb or  molest the passengers.   Trainmen  say there was about $.100'in  the  boxes taken.

THE  BAREST  METALS,  London Express.  Some people are -untler- the-ini--  pression that the ��� now fairly^fam-  iliar whitish metal platinum is one  of the few substances more expensive than that* fascinating yellow  material we-spend-so great a portion of our lives in hunting.  This, however,, is not, so, oven  allowing that, bulk -by biilkrplati-  num is hardly less than twice as  heavy as gold. At the .-standard .-  4 rate of -C'J 17s. lOicl. per troy  ounce, gold is worth nearly ��47 a  pound, platinum only -620'.'  If, though; you were-the fortunate-possessor of a lump- of platinum equal in bulk to a pound of  gold the silvery looking, lump  would be worth, not ��20, but -C85,  for platinum,' if not the dearest, is  the heaviest thing on earth.  Three times as costly*and practically as heavy is that wonderful  metal iridium, known to the-users,  of gold-nibbed pens as furnishing  the intensely^hard, non-corruptible  silvery- points. Pure- iridium- is  priced at-6(50*per pound,'and-'is so  heavy relatively that, this.-weight;  of it .would be in bulk rather larger  than half the size of a pound of  gold.  Yet-the so-called ������iridium'-.points  of a gold nib are not - of pure iridium, but of a natural blend of iridium and another rare metal, osmium. This blend is found in the  form, of scales���some;, flattened,,  some of a pin-head shape���in -localities where placer, gold is got, placer  gold being the sort that is obtained  by washing .loose,dirt and, not-by;  crushing. -  Of these "iridosmine" scales the  pin. head type alone are suitable  for pen- points, and do not exceed a  fifth .of the - entire yearly * find,  which "may- average ' three ">aruKa-,  half to four- ounces- of gold obtained.  Of the pin head scales  10,000  do.  not weigh more than an ounce, and  arc worth about ��50.    Pure iridium  is allowed -with - platinum . to -make  the closing. faces- of breech-blocks,  for modern artillery.-this.compound.  being   the   only . thing  that   will  stand the corrosion of the gases and  the enormous heat���about 4000 degrees centrigrade. .   Over, a thousand rounds have been fired from a  trial gun without the vent showing  the'slightest-sign of wear.  For pure osmium there is not a  great deal of use, except, in.chemis;  try,:yet'thea-arity. of it drives up  the price to ��10- an- ounce. ��120 a  troy pound. At a temperature of  100 degrees centigrade this-singular inefal vaporises and gives off a  gas;which stains-the experimenters  skin a permanent black, and which  ^may~bIind"hira"by-dopositirig"a"filin"~  of the metal on his eyeballs.  Rhodium is another of the precious metals belonging to what is  known as the ^'platinum group,';: It  is one of the hardest metals to melt,  and will only yield to the electric  are or the oxyhydrogene lime'-fin'-,  nace,- It can-be used, like-iridiuin,  for pointing gold pens.---: Its cost  figures! out to ��85^ a pound, but^ at  tliatitis a'trifle; lighter than,gold,  when taken: bulk:for .bulk. ���  The curiously namedanetal "palladium" stands at ��75 per pound,  and its* appearance is of a silver  white to steel grey. One per.cent  of it makes gold brittle and yellowish white, twenty per cent turns  the compound quite white. The  air has no influence whatever upon  palladium, nor does it tarnish in  sulphuric.gases. Por these reasons  it is used, in alloy with gold, for  the finely graduated scales of valuable astronomical instruments. If,  instead of a silver currency, we  employed- any of these almost incredibly costly; metalsTr-supposing  we could get enough of them,  which w^ould be difficult���our ideas,  of value would undergo a sudden  change.  An iridium "sixpence," without  looking any different, would'.jbe  worth half a sovereign, and an  osmium one would have fin ex-  ehangable value of twice the  amount. Small' change in either  metal would have to be made by  an expert. ���,:  The  Days to Wash:  The woes of washing.day. in the  flats have reached such a stage in  Chicago that the circuit court lias  THE BAN^OrY  BRITISH  COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, V. 8.,  Atlin, B.

The- landlord was  appealed to, and, horrible-to relate,  he favored  the -newcomer.- ��� Then-  tlie court was appealed  to, and the  judge has docided.-that-tho-second  floor holds Tuesday- and- the-third  floor takes Wednesday, or putsher  washing out.

Clements, provincial land  surveyor, returned yesterday after  spending a couple of months surveying mineral claims in the Sandon and Cody sections. One feature which impressed itself on his  mind was that The Tribune was  the only newspaper circulating  among the working miners of the  district and that it could- be found  in��every camp. Almost every miner  who struck the surveyor's camp  had a copy of The Tribune in his  possession and it was the only  paper they encountered during the  long weeks in the mountains.-   = -JWas_an jOld.Soldier.^   John McVeigh, of the firm of McVeigh Brothers, has taken charge  of the affairs of . the late George  High, who died at the general hospital on Wednesday night shortly  after being removed to the institution.
