 uS'v xJ~y izhyrMi  m^mmm  :r_,^_:m30_%  If*  DAILY EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  - 'Si  ETGIITH YEAR  NELSON":   SATURDAY MORNING NOVEMBER 24 1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  MINIM DEAL ON FORTY-NINE CREEK  Charles  Parker  Bonds the Republic Claim for Thirty  Thousand Dollars.  AN EXPLOSION OF POWDER NEAR THE SILVER KING  Charles Parker, mining engineer,  has bonded the Republic claim on  Forty-nine creek, owned by Joseph  Duhamel and Arthur Powis, two  well-known prospectors who have  worked in tho Forty-nine creek section for a number of years. The  consideration is $30,000. Tf the mine  proves satisfactory on further examination by a consulting engineer  the claim will be purch.-ised at once.  The bonding of tho Republic is regarded as of "more thau ordinary  importance to the district. The  claim lies in the heart of the lower  free milling belt and all the ^neighboring ground is staked. One property working on a comprehensive  scale will mark the opening of a  new era on Forty-nine creek.  The Republic is located seven  miles west of Nelsonon the government trail. It was staked five  years ago by Joseph Duhamel aud  since then the history of the property has been a long search for  the vein. The ground is covered  with 20 feet of wash and to prospect this with any measure of system would have - necessitated a  much larger outlay than the average prospector could afford, but  fortuue finally smiled on the' owners of the Republic and about three  months since they struck the long  looked for vein. - It proved to be  unusually wide and to carry values  above the average for a ledge of  equal width. .The contact* is said  to be well defined and the ledge  quarters up the hill in a westerly  'direction. Should it' continue in  place the vein will run 'through' a  number of adjoining claims, and  any work on- the Republic will  greatly enhance the value of surrounding ��� properties. Had the  claim' not been bonded the owners  were so well pleased with their  prospect that they would have put  in a live-stamp mill next spring.  A Similkameen Pioneer.  C.-Murphy, one of the pioneers of  the Similkameen country, spent  yesterday in the eity on business  connected with his interests in the  new mining camp. - He speaks enthusiastically of the Similkameen  .and predicts for it a bright future.  ������The new district," says Mr. Murphy, "is as near an ideal mining district as I have yet encountered.  The mineral belt I estimate to be  25 miles long by 2i miles wide. The  copper occurs in "strong veins, located  on.  the   watershed   of   the  ~l'V,1fs~er~7uid_Columbia_"rivers- The"  laud is rolling, the hills grassed to  the tops, the country splendidly  timbered and well watered. Almost all the country is available  either for ranching or grazing and  the Indians and half-breeds who  follow these lines are an exceptionally intelligent class. Their farms  and stock look well, particularly  the bands of horses which graze  over the country. These animals  are well bred and often Weigh 1200  pounds each and the Indians will  reap a harvost when hoavy horses  for teaming are in demand.  "The Similkameen bids fair to become a great copper ���country. The  copper occurs in strong veins. I call  them, so because thoy can bo traced,  but which are usually termed  dykes. The average of the ore will  run, I should estimate from my personal experience, about 12 per cent  in copper throughout the whole  camp. One strohg point which  will be an important factor in the  future history of the Similkameen  is that within a distance of 12 to 15  miles great deposits of coal are  found. This fuel is claimed to be  somewhat superior in quality to the  Crow's Nest product and the coal  beds are very extensive. A great  need' within the next few years  will be transportation facilities.  The roads are excellentnow and tlio  Indians will pack goods anywhere  at a low rate, but when the proper-  o ties are developed to the producing  stage, a railroad will be necessary  to bring in coal and carry ore to  smelters or the finished product if  smelters are established in the section as   will undoubtedly  be   the  the  The  As-  the  case. The district's history is practically that of the present year and  taking this fact into consideration  its advances have been remarkable.  1 look forward to a, busy season  next year and expect to see the  Similkameen one of the banner  camps of the province within a.few  years." *  Mr.'Murphy is interested with  W. E. Boie, formerly superintendent at Camp Mansfield,-in the Pearl  group comprising five cliiims, the  Vancouver of four claims and  Enterprise of five claims,  three properties are located at  pen Grove about the center of  mineral belt.     Mysterious Explosion.  - Shortly after midnight yesterday  a heavy explosion south of the city  was heard by scores of citizens and  many houses were shaken by the  disturbance in the air. A mystery  surrounds the explosion!. Yesterday afternoon The Tribune - telephoned to the Athabasca mine and  was informed that the blow-up occurred at the Silver King or iu that  vicinity. At the King mine the  clerk in the office denied that any  explosion had taken place there and'  further asserted that he had heard  no explosion. The general impression is that the powder house at  the Silver King blew up withoutin-  juring anyone.  Mining Records.

Washington, November 23.-���The  state department today issued a  warrant for the surrender to the  German authorities of Johanu Baur,  now held under arrest at New York  under commitment by Commissioner Seinple, charged with murdering his father at Munichmunster,  Bavaria.     The   allegations   show  that the father was a dissipated old  locksmith and had signified his purpose to marry again, thus cutting  off the children's inheritance. The  son, advising with his sister, decided to make away with his  father. One morning he went into  the fields and dug a hole, then came  back and informed his sister that  he had prepared a grave for the old  man. When the father returned  his son beat him to death with a  shovel and put his body in a sack,  loaded it into a wagon and carried  it out and buried it in the place  lie had prepared. Then Bauer fled  to America where he was arrested  on the confession of his sister.  The Czar's Condition.  St. Petersburg, November 23.���  It is rumored here this afternoon  that emperor Nicholas is threatened  with pectoral complications, which,  if they exist, would materially  diminish his chances of recovery.  Inflammation of the lungs is a common complication of typhoid fever  in Russia. Thus far there is no  official confirmation of the rumor.  A diagnosis of the czar's malady,  says a dispatch from St. Petersburg  to the Siecle, shows that he has  typhoidic enteritis. His brain is  affected and his intellectual powers  are endangered.  Philippine Government.  Manila, November 23.���The  Philippine commission has enacted  the firstlegislation establishing provincial civil government in the  Philippines', namely, an act for the  government of the province of Ben:  gnet. This was adopted and it coordinates with the act passed yesterday of the establishment of the  township government in that province.          THE CUBANS IN CONVENTION  DISCUSS     FUTURE     EELATIONS  WITH UNCLE SAM.  General Sanguily of War  Fame De-  ' clares   He  Is  a  Patriot  and  "~       Beady for, Anything..  Havana, November 23.���The  question whether the future relations of Cuba and the United States  are to be considered simultaneously  with the drawing up of the constitution gave rise to a spirited argument between senor Gualberto Go-  mer/a and general Sanguily at today's session of the Cuban constitutional convention. Senor Gomes-  said: "The relations must depend  on the constitution and not the constitution on the relations. General  Wood's address at the opening of  the convention outlined the course  for us to take, namely, first, to  draw up a constitution and then to  discuss the question of relations. I  believe it was not the intention of  -the-United-States-to-have-the-con-  stitution of Cuba depend on the relations and I would refuse to act  further in the convention if any  other view,prevailed. This is not  the time to discuss the relations."  General Sanguily, who made a patriotic address, said: "Our future relations will be an important factor  in the development of Cuba ' and  the convention should ��� flrst settle  what the relations are to be. I am  a patriot and ready for anything."  Dislike the Note.  London, November 23. ��� The  Times this morning comments editorially in a somewhat incredulous  way upon secretary Hay's fresh  note to the powers, saying that "It  cannot imagine secretary Hay objecting to the execution of the  guilty officials after, as,was understood, assenting to the French proposals." It admits, however, that  so far as outsiders can form an  opinion, "the United States appears  to be the leading obstacle to the  working of the concert of powers in  China." With reference to Wu  Ting Pang's speech in Cincinnati,  promising the United1 States better  commercial chances when peace is  restored, the Times says, "We  would not advise Chinese ministers  in Europe to venture upon such a  line of argument, as there are  countries where so gross a proposal  would be resented as an injury."  The Sullivan Obsequies.  London, November 23.���By the  queen's command the funeral service over the remains of sir Arthur  Sullivan will be held in the chapel  at St James palace on the 27th.  MAKING A HERO (OF KRUGER  HIS RECEPTION IN MARSEILLES  IS REPEATED. . v  'Vive Kruger" and "Vive Les Boers"  Enthusiastically Shouted at All  Stations En Route to Paris.  Dijon, France, November 23.���  Mr. Kruger has become for the moment at least, the popular idol of  the French. His triumphant passing northward through, the country from Marseilles "to.-Dijon has  placed this beyond doubt. He met  with a tremendous.' reception in  each town along the route where  the train stopped, culminating in  scenes of frenzied enthusiasm here  this evening, calculated to turn the  head of any one. The population  of Marseilles gathered in thousands  this morning to escort; him   to the  railroad station jmd gave him a  rousing sendoff, while at Tarascon,  Avignon, Valence, Lyons, Macon  and Dijon. the inhabitants who  crowded tho railroad stations made  the rafters 'tremble with enthusiastic shouts-of "Vive Kriigcr" and  "Vive les Boers."..-.;._, "  The demonstration was .all the  more significant "because -it shows  that the perfervid acclamations vat  Marseilles were not*: merely an - explosion of exuberance oh the part  of the warm hearted and exciteable  population of. a sunny clime, but  sentiments shared with even greater  intensity by the usually less demonstrative'-and colder blooded inhabitants of the riorthern'provinces.  The warmth of,"the reception increased instead of", decreased as  might have been expected from the  difference, in character of the inhabitants of the provinces through  which Mr. Kruger passed, but one  of the most- important phases of  the demonstration-was the turn it*  took in an anti^British- direction.  The few Englishmeiftvtio^elll-timed  levity at the Hotel du Louvre in  Marseilles* exasperated the people  in the streets there, never dreamed  of the serious consequences of their  folly. They sowed the wind today and the English people are  reaping the whirlwind.  The news of the supposed insult  to Mr. Kruger seems to have spread  across France and at all stations,  but especially Lyons and Dijon,  shouts for the Boers were mingled  with loud cries of "Down with the  English." Indeed at Lyons, the denunciations of the English drowned  the shouting for the Boers. This is  the disturbing feature,that. is universally discussed.- "Fears are expressed that tomorrow's ' reception  in Paris may assume^' a character  calculated to arouse the feeling of  Great Britain against France to  such an extent as to result in unpleasant���relations^betweeh* the"  countries. The warmth of enthusiasm reached in Marseilles yesterday  palpably raised the spirits of Mr.  Kruger and his advisers to a high  pitch.  The faces of Dr. Leyds, Mr.  Fischer and others, which on the  eve of the arrival of Mr. Kruger revealed the anxiety -they felt regarding his reception, were today  lightened up with happiness and  confidence. Evidently hope had revived in all that his mission to  Europe would be crowned with  success.. Mr. Fischer spoke to Mr.  Kruger today regarding- the visit  of the Boer onvoys to the United  States and told him of tlio welcome  they had received there from the  American people.  He expressed himself grateful to  know that so many Americans had  displayed sympathy with the cause  of tho Transvaal, adding that he  was not at all surprised to learn  this, as he had expected all along  that the citizens of the American  republic would stand by-the Boers  in the struggle to defend the liberty which they had previously  won for themselves.  How Paris Will Receive Him.  Paris, November 23.���The peaceful but enthusiastic manner in  which the people of Marseilles  greeted the arrival of Mr. Kruger  yesterday and the warm welcome  extended to him iu the cities he  passed through today, all occurring  without any anti-British demonstration of any consequence, have  made the authorities feel confident  that his reception . here tomorrow  will- not result in any unpleasant  incident. M. Lepino, the prefect of  police, said today: "We have full  confidence in the people of Paris  and count upon them not to do  anything likely to cause diplomatic  complications,  However, the police have tho  strictest orders to permit any cries  which are complimentary to Mr.  Kruger and the Boers, but they  will not tolerate any cries uncomplimentary to a neighboring friendly country. Any persons uttering  such uncomplimentary cries will be  arrested.  Mr. Kruger will arrive at the  Lyons railway station at 10:34 a.m.  where he will be met by committees  representing the Boers, deputies,  senators, etc. -After an informal  reception he will be escorted by  way of the grand boulevards to his  hotel, which is situated on a promi- ,  nent boulevard. His time of passing through these thoroughfares  will be coincident with the lunch  hour, and many of the stores, etc.,  will be closed for the rest of the  afternoon. - There is certain to be  an immense concourse of people  along the route.  Kruger's Purpose.  Brussels, November 23.���The  Soir-this evening says: Mr. Kruger  on his .arrival at The Hague will  ask for mediation and if unsuccessful he will make public all the documents of state in his possession  showing the secrets of the war.  The paper adds th.atMr. Kruger-believes that when Europe knows the  truth it will produce such an outburst of public opinion that Great  Britain will be compelled to be less  harsh. The Soir adds that failing  this, Mr. Kruger will return to the  Transvaal.  THEY SBCUBE FIVE MILLION SHABES,  THE STORM AT 10S ANGELES  PRACTICALLY     ISOLATED     FOR  TWENTY-FOUR   HOURS.'  Rain    Fell    in   .Torrents,  ���   Traffic   and   Flooding  '." lings and-Stores".'  Stopping  Dwel-  Los Angeles, California, November 23.���Los Angeles was practically cut off from the outside world  during the 24 hours ending at noon  today. The telegraph, telephone  and railroad companies had scattering connections with points more  or less distant at that time, but the  service was generally anything but  satisfactory. Such ��a condition of  affairs has not been known in this  section for several years. The rain  fell.in sheets until last night, the  total precipitation being 0.54 inches.  Street car service was entirely suspended last night, the tracks being  covered with mud. making them  impassable.  The property damage during the  storm can not as yet be estimated.  It will, however, reach into thousands, the railroads being the worst  sufferers, with the traction lines a  close second. Had the rain continued until this morning more  than one dwelling and store with  their contents would probably have  been washed away. The Los Angeles river at noon today was wide  and high enough to float a fleet of  fair sized gunboats. The Southern  Pacific's C'ovina branch was washed  out, but train service on the line  may bo resumed tomorrow.  The Pomona and El Paio lines  via Schorb .were reported in bad  condition at noon. The linos to  Pasadena via Schorb to.Santa Ana  and Downey are washed away.  The Sunset Limited, as well as  the regular westbound trains due  today, are tied up at Pomona.  They reached that point last night  and have been stalled - ever since.  No traius to .San Francisco or east-  bound left the Arcade depot last  night, although an attempt will be  made to send out the "Owl" and a  traiu east tonight.  The Santa Fe, like the Southern Pacific, is practically tied up in  all directions except the lino to  Red lands.   Honor a Boer Commander.  Alb an v, New York, November  23.���Colonel Arthur Lynch, late  commander of the Second Irish  brigade of the Boer army, was entertained at lunch today by governor Roosevelt at the executive  mansion and later was dined by  John H. Farrell.  And Gain Control of the Dominion  Properties.  Copper Company's  OTHER NEWS ITEMS FROM PROVINCE AND DOMINION  Rossland, November   23.���It   is  reported that a big   deal  has just  been closed by   Mr.   James   Breen,  representing himself   and   a   New  York syndicate, who   has   secured  the control of the five million shares  I of the Dominion Copper   Company.  The consideration is withheld.  The  owners of   the   Dominion   Copper  Company were Messrs. Mackenzie &  Mann,   the    railway    contractors;  hon.-George A. Cox, of Toronto; Mr.  J. Ross, a mining man of   Spokane;  Robert .Taffry,   of Toronto;    Hugh  Sutherland,   of    Winnipeg;   A.   J.  Roberts, of   Spokane   and   W. T.  Smith of Greenwood.    It is   understood that the new parties in   control will at once begin   active   development and that a smelter   will  be built to smelt   the   ores.    It   is  said that some point on the   Kettle  river will be selected as a   site   for.  the smelter.    The idea seems to be  to use the   ores   of   the   Republic  camp with those of the Boundary,  as they pioduce.a perfect flux. .The"  properties owned by the Dominion  Copper   Company, consist  of   the  Brooklyn,      Stemwihder,      Idaho,  Standard and Montezuma,   all   adjoining the Phoenix,  . The Brooklyn has been developed  by a shaft 200 feet deep and 2000  feet of drifts.   The development ou  the Stemwinder consists of a shaft  300 feet deep and 700 feet of drifts  and crosscuts.   The Brooklyn and  Stemwinder are provided with'...  small plants. The vein on thesei-i'  properties is crosscut for over dO':y  feet aud carries high values in" gold'._'.  and copper. The pay chute has,'-,  been exposed for 500 feet,-on one ?'i  of the levels.

"Japan, the United States, Russia  "and"Prance -favor demanding* a  milder punishment than the execution of prince Tuan and tho others,  while Great Britain, Germany, Austria, Hungary and Italy deem any- '  thing less than the death penalty  useless. An important decision has  been arrived at, however., that this  divergence is not to interfere with  the general peace negotiations.

Nelson during  the recentprovincial campaign, has  been selected as the labor candidate for the vacancy in Nanaimo  City created by the return of  Ralph Smith to the federal house.  Hawtliornthwaite is a Robins candidate as'well'as a'labor man.  Thrre is no man in Canada-today upon whom tho leadership of  the Conservative party can fall  with more universal approval than  upon Hugh John Macdonald. His  defeat in Brandon cuts no figure,  in Brandon he sacrificed himself to  his party. His defeat in no way  lessens-his claim upon the leadership ofihis'party.  The business men of Victoria aro:  far from* being-off one'mind upon  the proposals of the railway promoters who are seeking to connect:  Victoria with' the   United States-  railway systems, and continue* the*  Island* rail way north to catch* the  northern  trade.      From the- complexion of the committee appointed  to  fight  the  scheme, it- may be  guessed that the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company does not regard  tlie scheme favorably.     Many of  tlie men who are now opposing tlie  present scheme were prominent in  their opposition to Corbin's Kettle  River Extension  proposals.     They  then insisted that the trade of the  Boundary country should be preserved for an all-Canadian line  which tlie Canadian Pacific projected from the Coast. ' They had  influence enough to defeat Corbin ;  and'when he was out of the way  the Canadian Pacific tapped the  Boundary from the East instead  of from the Coast. The result was  the shutting out of Victoria from  participation in the trade of the  Boundary. Had Corbin succeeded  in his scheme the merchants of Victoria would have had an immediate  entrance into the Boundary ; and  when the Canadian Paeifie built in  they would-have- had competition;  Instead of this they have no entrance, and when the C. P. R. builds  in they will have an entrance  without competition. Since Victoria decided against railway competition iii 1890 it is not improbable  that it will again-'so-decide*-when  tho-; present, railway bylaw, conies  np for nonsidemtioi).

There is.  yet considerable work to. be done  and it-is quite-possible that there  are some spellbinders in the crowd  .who are hiding their'light under a  bushel and holding b.ick valuable  campaign knowledge that the  friends of John McKane'are thirsting to know.

The "Ward street Afternoon Tea  Chronicle" took occasion some short  time back to be greatly horrified at  the idea expressed- in this column  thatdt is a wise policy for us to  send a member of one of the two  great, parties- to Ottawa, if we  would obtain even a small per cent-  age of our contributions in the shape  of customs, inland revenue, etc., to  the general fund; that paper went  on to say;that such ideas were inimical to good politics, in fact- debauching and demoralizing in the  highest.

Through   the   official, announcement that Austin Lee, second-secre-'  tary.of the British embassy  here,  has been nominated t>y lord Salisbury   for   promotion  to a knight  r'ommandership   of the   Bath,  his  American wife, one of the most conspicuous figm-es of.the foreign, colony on the banks of the Seine, receive.-* an English title and becomes  lady   Lee,"     Her ��� advancement in  | , J^ank   coincides   strangely   enough  *���'  with the-financial andsocial eclipse  of her particular enemies, the.connt  and countess Bonide Castellane.  Lady Lee, althoug.rno longer in  tlie first bloom of youth' still remains a most fascinating, and: brilliant woman, possessed of. 'ranch  elegance and personal attractions,  and'shares- with her- English?husband a knowledge- ot the ins- and.  outs of French society that is  unrivalled among foreigners. Prior  to her marriage with Austin Lee  she was Mrs. De AVollf Taylour, and  it was not long after her arrival  from New York that she became  famous here for her magnificent  voice. Indeed, she is acknowledged  to have the most glorious voice in  the French capital, either on or off  the stage, aud is consequently- in  great demand among the most exclusive salons of the noble Faubourg.  When Anna Gould first arrived  here .as-the. bride. of-count^Boni de-  Castellane-she found an- invaluable  adviser, friend .and. social mentorin-  Mrs. Austin. Lee, who helped her  to avoid..those many, social, pitfalls  that await the foreigner. Indeed,  such social attention as Mme, de  Castellane received was owing to  her countrywomen, .her husband,  count Boni, having but.little status  or influence' in the great world,  s.ave through the family of his  mother.  All went well until Boni de Castellane chartered the big English  yacht Walhalla .and invited a party  of friends to join him on a trip,  which, beginning, with Cowes, was  to comprise visits-, to. Stockholm  and Copenhagen, as well as to the  Island of Tethon,*some miles west  of Alderney, in the British Channel,  which belongs entirely and solely  to tlie Austin Lees. t,  At Cqwes Mrs. Lee was instrumental in securing the presence of  the prince of Wales at a dinner on  board the yacht, and. the- superior  consideration manifested. by the  British heir apparent to Mi's. Austin Lee was not without arousing  the ill will of the countess de Castellane, who ��� considered that as a-  hostess she had the first claim on  the notice of his royal- highness.  -During-the-subsequent���trip��� tho-  ill-feelingthus engendered became  more acute. The countess began to.  complain that Boni manifested a  preference for the society of-" Mrs.  Lee to that of his lawful wife, and;  finally at Copenhagen matters  reached such a pitch that an angry  discussion between the two ladies  ' onsued, culminating in a request  I' preferred by the countess that Mrs,  Lee leave the. yacht.  The very fact that Mrs. Lee  should have been subject to such  a humiliation, implying as it did  misconduct of the most llagrant  character, would have been sufficient to impair the social position  here of any woman less gifted and  experienced than the fair American  member of the British embassy.  Returning; to Paris, she gave it to  be understood among the great  ladies of the Faubourg St. Germain  that the vocal services which she  had given at their request in behalf of charities organized by them  in behalflot. the Roman Catholic  church had developed in her mind  leanings towards that denomination. Now, if there is one thing  that these great ladies delight in  more than another, it is in being  able to place to their record here on  earth and up above the conversion  of a "heretic."  Accordingly, as soon as ever the  stout, kind-hearted and cheery  duchess de Rohan, who is facile  priuceps the leader of the Parisian,  great world, became aware of the  disposition manifested by Mrs. Lee  she carried her off- to her country  seat, the Chateau.de Josselin, where  she completed Mrs. Lee's religious  i nsfcriictions,   and   iu   the   private  THE BANK.

Thisshrewd move on the part of  Mrs. Leo completely discounted the  social effects.of the affront to which  she had been subjected by the  countess de Castellane, and before  six months had passed the Castel-  Innes found themselves cold-shouldered: iu tlie noble Faubourg, -where;  Mi 8. Austin Lee was received ��� with*  open arms and as a universal  favorite  That Mrs, Lee; should be transformed into lady Lee.within a few  days of the Castellanes being virtually pronounced by the French  courts bankrupt and deprived of  the control of the remnant of their  fortune may be said to constitute  the climax of this feud between  two American women on the banks  of the Seine. It may be added that  sir Austin Lee, as he now is, is the  representative of the British government on the directorate of the  Sue'/. Caual Company, besides holding the office of consul-general.  Moreover, he is known its a species,  of;diplomatic dry nurse, being entrusted with the delicate task, of;  making newly appointed - ambassadors and secretaries assigned to  ;Paris acquainted with tho ropes of  the Parisian capital.

The central scene is a bit of scenery  from Banff, while a section devoted  to P. Purns &. Company's advertisement depicts their Baker street  window as sketched by Mr. Halton  on the day that private A. S. Lee  returned from the Boer war. The  effect of the whole is excellent. Mr.  Halton leaves today for Sandon,  where he will make the scenery for  the new opera house there.  A Big Contract.  John W.
