 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  4 ��-Jl>      at*  EIGHTH  YEAR.  NELSON":   WEDNESDAY  MORNING NOVEMBER 21  1900  PRICE  FIVE  OBNT8  MINING  MATTERS OF INTEREST  Headquarters of the Chapleau Company Has Been Removed From  Slocan to Nelson.  NEWS FROM  VARIOUS  PROPERTIES  ALONG THE LINE  The Canadian oflico of tho Chapleau Consolidated Gold Mining  Company has been transferred from  Slocan City to Nelson and is now  located at the residence of G. L. R.  Weyl who has been duly appointed  the company's attorney for British  Columbia. Mr. Weyl resides on  Observatory street and will conduct his end of the business from  Nelson, visiting the - mine when  necessity demands. The mine manager, as has been stated, is P. Mourgues, the French engineer, sent out  at the time of the recent trouble.  Viscount de Grammont, one of the  committee of directors, is still in  Nelson, but leaves for Prance on  December 5th. The company has  all its business arrangements  straightened out, and within a fortnight the Chapleau will enter the  producing stage. * .-  From the Similkameen.  W. R, Boie,- formerly superintendent at Camp Mansfield, has returned from an interesting trip  through the Similkameen country  from Nicola to Princeton, He testifies to the remarkable copper  properties located in tho district  and expresses the opinion that a  couple of years will see the Similkameen properly opened up and  the transportation facilities necessary to its growth provided. Tlie  copper is found in immense bodies  and some of the largest deposits'  are said to run as high as 24 per  cent, while properties, averaging 12~  to 15 per cent are not by any means  uncommon^ In places the wash is full  of native copper and great lumps  of the virgin metal can be seen in  the rock. At one property Mr.  Boie saw 30 sacks of native copper  which had been dug out of the  wash with a pick. This native  ccjpper is said to rim 80 percent  pure.- -At Nicola eight cabins were  erected this fall by men who purpose remaining on the ground to  work their claims, and at Aspen  Leaf, a new settlement round which  some of the richest ore is found,  a number of properties will be  working through the winter.  At the Venus.  Development work is being  prosecuted steadily at the Venus  mine. The winze from No. 3 tunnel  was sunk 103 feet and a tunnel is  being driven from the surface to  tap the vein at the foot of the  winze. The shaft was _in good ore  all the way down and^tKe-tunnel-  -projected is expected to tap the  richest chute yet discovered on the  property. It is intimated that the  company will do nothing this winter in the direction of installing a  stamp mill. . '��� '���  In the Hands of the Sheriff.  The Heather Bell Mining & Milling Company, operating in the Slocan, is in trouble. The sheriff has  seized their property, including the  Heather Bell, North Star and  Atlanta mineral' claims, located a  mile and a half from Three Forks,  to satisfy a judgment in favor of  Angus McDonald, a miner, for $308.  The claims will be offered for sale  on the 28th instant. The Victoria  No. 0 claim, situated a quarter of a  mile from Sandon, has also been  seized to satisfy a" judgment for  $159 wages in the matter of G. D,  McMartin vs. A. D. Williams.  Will Complete the Tunnel.  Jean B. Richard, the Belgian engineer who came out from London,  England, on the 13th inst., is in  Camp Mansfield. When work was  suspended there a tunnel to tap the  ���Toker vein was under way and constructed to within ten feet of the  ledge. A small crew of men* has  been put on to complete this work,  after, which it is presumed Mr.  Richard will make his report on the  properties.   More Development.  In reviewing the advances in the  mining industry for the" year on  Monday The Tribune did not refer  to the.operations of the Manchester  Syndicate or   the Canadian ..Gold  Fields, both of which  corporations  have bonded properties in the district of which Nelson is the distributing center and are now working   their   new   properties.      The  former has taken over the Silverton  Boy near Silverton, -the Alice at  Creston and   the Elgin  group- on  Procter creek. .All are now working  under the director of T. G. Procter,  who   represents ' the syndicate  in  Canada.   The  Silverton  Boy is a  silver-lead proposition adjoining the  Emily   Edith   property on   which  an important strike was  made recently.   It shows up splendidly for  the amount of' work done and promises to become a mine.   The Alice  is one of the few properties working  in  the immediate vicinity of  Creston and is rich- in lead values.  Further details of the progress of  development    will    be    to    hand  shortly.   The Elgin group is near  the head of Procter creek, which  empties, into the lake atvthe new  town'of   Procter.-  _ Only-'a' small  crew can be utilized at the present  time owing to the difficulty encountered in getting up supplies during  the winter, and the syndicate is to  be   congratulated   on keeping   up  work even on a small scale.   The  progress of operations in  this section will  be   watched   with keen  interest, as the district is practically virgin, and success means the  addition of a new camp to  the list  of Kootenay mining centers.  This fall the Canadian Gold  Fields took over the Commonwealth  group on - Hooker creek which  empties into the lake in the Crawford Bay district. The reports from  the properties are most encouraging,  and from- appearances -it- looks- as  though' the company's good fortune, first manifested in connection  with the St. Eugene mine at Moyie,  was following them in their later  ventures. The same corporation  lias the True Blue group on the  south fork of Kaslo creek and the  Sunset group in the Slocan camp  under bond.  Another deal which went through  quite recently was the purchase of  the Mastadon property oh Lost  creek by the International Gold  Mining & Development Company of  Stansted, Quebec, the company being formed for the express purpose  of acquiring the claims. It isunder-  stood they will commence work on  a good scale in the spring and the  advent of capital on Lost creek will  do much to secure for that section  the attention it merits.

Kingston, Jamaica, November  20.���It has been ascertained that a  fortnight ago the Colombia government was negotiating with the  Pacific Navigation Company for the  purchase of one of its coasting vessels for war purposes. In consequence of tho rebels' activity and  the advance of the rebel forces on  Panama that city was placed  under martial law November 10th.  The steamer Taboga is .believed to  have been sent November 13th to  bring in reinforcements from the  coast. But it is not known positively here whether the Taboga  was seized by the Colombian government. Letters from Colon say,  several people, including foreigners,  have been lodged in the prison at  Panama on suspicion of helping the  rebels.         THE KAISER 18 CRITICIZED  By Hen* Richter.  ���* Berlin**, November 20.���The debate on'the government's policy in  China was criticised in the reich-  stag today. Herr Bassermann,-  National Liberal, endorsed the policy and expressed the gratification  of his party at the* Anglo-German  agreement. Herr Richter declared  that the Radicals were of the  opinion since the assassination of  baron von Ketteler that a military  demonstration in China was absolutely necessary, but that,the dispatch of an ironclad division was  superfluous. He alluded to the  public declarations of emperor  William and said they were obviously intended to influence public  opinion. Herr Richter added that  he thought the emperor shouldfirst  have had an* understanding with  competent ministers regsirding the  tenor and, wording of these declarations, asserting that much that was  objectionable and displeasing would  thus have been .-obviated. .^Polities  and religion, he continued, ought  not to have been mixed up as they  had been in the emperor's speeches,  because the effect was to spoil  both. "The greatest mistake of  our China policy," concluded herr  Richter, "was after the Chino-Jap-  anese ��� war when we joined with  Russia and France in opposing  Japan." Herr Richter's advice to  the emperor to consult his ministers  elicited marks of approval.  Grounding of the Indiana.  -Washington, November 20.���  Quartermaster-general Ludington  received a cable dispatch today  from colonel Miller, chief quartermaster at Manila, confirming the  press report of the grounding of  the transport Indiana on the east  side of Isla de Polio, one of the  smaller islands of the Philippine  group, east of Luzon. Colonel Mil-  -ler'sdispatch-is-as-follows:   "Indiana, aground November 7th;  is reported as not damaged. Charles  D. Palmer, quartermaster, with the  transport Pennsylvania and a  lighter -draft vessel left Manila Monday in order to relieve. Nothing  more necessary."  When the Indiana ran aground  she was loaded with supplies and a  company of the 22nd infantry destined to act as a garrison at Baler.  Bank Robbers Foiled.  Ashley, Ohio, November 20,���  Eight men made an unsuccessful  attempt to rob the Bank of Ashley  early today. After using four  charges of dynamite and shattering the outer doors of the vault, a  number of the citizens gathered.

HOW THEY WILL PUNISH OFFENDERS  The Chinese Imperial Edict Dealing With the Leaders  In the Late Uprising.  TAKEN A FAVORABLE TURN  -    The Czar's Illness.  St. Petersburg, November 20.���  A" medical practitioner of- high  standing in this city, who' is not  connected, with the state service,  after an analysis of the bulletins  from Livadia told the correspondent of the Associated Press today  that the illness of the czar had  taken.^an unusually favorable  course. "Apparently," he said,  "there is more anxiety abroad than  there is in Russia. " This may be  due largely to the statistics of typhoid mortality ��� in this country.  Death at this time would be peculiarly bitter to emperor Nicholas,  for he is again hoping for the,birth  of a son within a few months. It is  an open secret that the czarevitch,-  grand'duke Michael,'now about 22  years of age, is not a favorite of-  the emperor, whose supreme desire  is to "leave a son as heir to the]  throne." '   WRITTEN BY LIBERALS.  Tins TniBUNi; has placed a part of i>nt) colifimi-!  nt the disposal of   tho Liberals, whose views  will be expressed therein from time to time during tho campaign,   a like privilege is accorded  the Labor party und the Conservatives.  The Liberal committee rooms  were crowded last night by supporters of W. A. Galliher, who  were anxious to hear Frank Oliver,  Jtf. P., fresh from his triumph in  Alberta, and P. J. Deane of Kamloops. James Bannerman was in  the chair and introduced Mr.-Deane,  who gave a most encouraging  account of the feeling in various  parts of the constituency. Mr.  Deane has recently been along the  main line of the C. P. R. from  Golden to Agassiz and has just  completed a trip through the Slocan  and therefore knows whereof he  speaks.  Mr. Oliver was the next speaker,  and he delivered a most carefully  reasoned and convincing address.  Tostartwithhe-pointed���out-that-  the electors had not to consider the  question of electing Mr. Galliher,  Mr. McKane or Mr. Foley. There  was a larger iuterest at stake than  that of mere personalities. West  ern Canada had special needs, and  the Liberal government had introduced a policy designed to coyer  those needs. If the electors of this  constituency approved of that  policy they.., should vote for Mr.  Galliher, the Liberal candidate. If  they voted for one of his opponents  and Mr. Galliher were not returned,  they could blame the government if  they accepted the verdict of the people and reversed or discontinued  that policy. It was not a question  of candidates or parties, but a  question of endorsing or condemning the Liberal policy in so far as it  concerned tho west, a policy*which  had been one of justice for and development of the west.  Referring to the reduction in the  tariff, Mr. Oliver pointed out that  last year the customs collections  were $4,500,000 less than would  have been the case under the Conservative tariff of 1896, a sum of  money which was a direct saving  to the Canadian people at large.  The preferential tariff was said  to only favor luxuries, but cotton  goods had been reduced 7 per cent,  which meant a saving of $280,000  on $4,000,000 of imports, and  woolens 9 per cent, a saving of  $075,000 on $7,500,000 of imports, or  a total saving of $950,000 on two  classess of goods used by all kinds  of. people. Was not this a tariff  policy which worked to our benefit?  The Liberal policy was a tariff for  PRINCE  TUAN  SAVES  HIS  NECK  BUT  IS  BANISHED  -������-:<-_  Washington, November 20.���  The Japanese legation has received  from the foreign office at.Tokio the  text of tho Chinese imperial edict  dated the 13th instant on the pun-  ishmentof the anti-foreign officials.  It is to the following effect:  Orders have been already issued  for the punishment of the officials  responsible for opening hostilities  upon friendly powers and bringing  the country into the present critical condition by neglecting to suppress and even by encouraging the  Boxers. ' Biit a9 Pekin and its  neighborhood have not been entirely cleared of the Boxers, the  innocent people are suffering terribly through the devastation of  their fields and the destruction of  their' houses, a state of affairs  which cannot fail - to fill one with  bitterest feelings against these officials. And if,they are not punished  how can the anger of the .people be  appeased and the indignation of  the foreign powers allayed.  Accordingly prince Tuan is hereby deprived of his  title and rank:  and   shall,   together   with   prince  Chwang, who has already been de- ���  prived of his title, be  delivered  to  the clan court to be kept in prison  until the restoration of peace, when,  they shall  be banished  to Sheng  Leug to   be   imprisoned   for   life.;  Princes Yi and Tsi Yung, who have!  both been already deprived of their;  titles, are now also to' be delivered;  to the clan court for imprisonment,!  while prince Tsai Lien, also already?  deprived of .title and rank,- is\to.be}  kept confined in   his   own 'house. '-  Duke Tsai Lie Lan shall, forfeit'his-  ,.ft,jSI  '_'S%,  <���  >.~L  : r'it  *'^P  m  ���SJI  ���<m  M  revenue not'protection*, but - maun-.'  factured lead products were entitled;  to be raised to a parity with other,  imports, and thus entitled to the  incidental protection of such a  tariff.  The speaker believed in the government ownership of railways, but  was that a reason to block all" rail-.'  road enterprise until Canada at  large accepted those views.' The  Conservatives aided railroads unconditionally, but tho Liberals imposed conditions. The control of  rates inserted by Mr. Blair in the  Railways Subsidy Act had excited  the enmity of the C. P. R., who had  done their best to drive Mr, Blair  out of public* life, but the people'of  St. John had defeated tlie Hon.  George B. Foster aud the C. P. R,  by a majority of 1037. The control of the rates was even more im-  poWalTt"tban���th"e���bwnerahip"of"the"  road, and the reservation of running rates was also most important,  as it insured competition, and  he instanced the new daily service  to Spokane by the Nelson & Bed-  lington road over a portion of the  Crow's Nest railway. The payments made were as much for these  conditions as the construction of  the roads, and the government was  now in the position to prevent any  industry, district or town being  strangled by the railroad.  The Intercolonial railroad cost  Canada $51,500,000, and until 1897  had been run at a loss as a feeder  of the C. P. R. and Grand Trunk  railways. By its extension to Montreal it had been elevated to the  position of a competitive and paying road, notwithstanding the bluff  of Mr. Shaughnessy to take his  terminus away from St. John.  if the electors approved of these  measures and this policy, it was  their duty to show it in the only  way in their power, namely, by  voting for the government candidate, W. A. Galliher. Any other  selection must be infallibly accepted  as a condemnation of this and the  other policies of the government.  Will Not Start a' Paper.

Ii*;-the'Nelson Miner would confine  itself-to criticism of the acts of Mr.  Houston as a public-man; very little  fault could be found with it. But  the Miner has gone -further���it has  discussed-tho private affairs of an  individual, with which the public  had no concern. In doing so,-more-  over, it has resorted to villiflcation,  ancTwhen desirous of -gaining un-  usnal favor with-the eneinies-ofJVIr.  Houston, it has descended -to base  inuendo and cowardly ��� -negative  assertion. Ever ready to stab, it is  of raid to strike the blow. In this  way it deals with -Mr. Houston's  private affairs, always eluding the  point where it will render -itself  aetionable.-Eresumiug.THR Tribune  resorted to similar methods in dealing with the-affairs of the editor of  the Miner, would not that gentleman feel aggrieved ? Certainly the  public -would resent such use being  made of the columns of a paper  which should confine itself to  legitimate criticism and news.  ���Frank Oliver of Edmonton, Alberta,-who has been  re-elected to  the house of commons .by a majority that is now reported at 1150,  and-which-is likely to be increased  by the returns from-the back-townships,   was   in   Nelson   yesterday.  Although he is a strong Grit, he  called at The Tribune office, and.  during an hour's stay he had the  hottest time he has had since he  entered jpolitics in trying to convince the editor of,this -paper that,  the people of this section were not ���  reasonable in asking that --the present duties on  lead and lead products    should    be   raised   to   a  parity with the duties imposed by  the United States on like products.  Mr. Oliver had been at Sandon, and  someone there had told him that the  lead ores of the Sloean couldbe smelted as cheaply as the copper ores of  Rossland, and that the mino owners  of the Slocan who shipped their ore  to the smelters at Trail and Nelson  were being robbed, in being required  to pay   a   freight   and treatment  charge of ,$21 por ton, which is the  samo   rate paid.for  treating tho  same oro when shipped to smelters  at   Omaha,    Nebraska,  or Pueblo,  Colorado.   And Mr. Oliver believed  what he had been told at Sandon,  and the editor of this  paper could  not convince him that he had been  "stuffed."    He  was   told that tho  freight and treatment charge was  based    on    the   Helling    prion    of  lead    in    New    York,   and    that  the    cost    of     hauling     a     ton  of     lead     ore     from     a     mine  in the Slocan via the Trail  smelter  to New Yoi*k was ,j nst the same as  hauling a ton  of load ore from a  mine in the Slocan via the Omaha  smelter to-New Fork; that the cost  of labor at Trail  or Nelson was 2!>  per   C(*nt   higher   than   afc   either  Omaha or Pueblo; that it was better   for.   Canada   to  have  its ore  smelted   in   Canada   than' in   the  United States, oven if the cost -was  a trifle higher.   This question does  not seem to be understood by members of parliament.   When a western .member like Mr. Oliver does not  understand why the'silver-lead ores  of the Slocan cannot be smelted at  as low a rate per ton as is charged  for smelting the copper-gold ores of  Rossland and Boundary, somebody  must     begin     doing     missionary  work.    The farmers of Mr. Oliver's  district raise a surplus of food products. Thoy want a market. Naturally they look to the mining districts  of Kootenay for that-market.   The  lead miners  of Kootenay want a  market   for   the  output   of   their  mines.    Naturally, they say  they  should have the home market -without competing for it, and -the only  way they can get it is by a tariff that  will place them on .an even footing  with   the   United  States.     There  should -be-.- reciprocity- between the  farmers of Alberta and the.miners  of Kootenay, but that reciprocity  cannot be obtained if the farmers  of Alberta are made believe that  the local smelters in Kootenay are  robbing the lead mine owners of  the Slocan.     No such robbery is  carried on; but the point is to convince members of parliament, like  Mr, Oliver, of that fact.  There are two questions that  concern the people of Yale-Cariboo.  One is the duty on lead and lead  products; the other is adequate  mail facilities. These, are questions  that the member-for-.the district in  -the house of commons :should.;be  able to explain explicitly and forcibly. If a member is not posted on  ���these questions, or is not particular ly-i nterested-in^them ,-what- can ,-  or what will, he accomplish? What  is-the use of sending to Ottawa a  .member who is versed in tlie ancient .history or traditions of  his party, and .totally unversed in  practical questions, like freight, and  treatment charges on lead ores or  tho shortest and quickest route  over which to dispatch mails ?  WKITTEN    BY    CONSERVATIVES.  [The TiumJNB'hns placed a part of-one .column  nt the dUpoBal.of tho Conservatives, whose vlows  will 1*o expressed therein frmn time to time during tho campaign. A like privllci-c 1h accorded  the Labor party and the Liberals.)  The Edmonton chinook which wo  have been enjoying the past few  days has not dimmed-the -ardor of  the McKane committee. In thunder, lightning, hail, rain or snow  they will be found every evening  at the committee rooms and invite  all supporters of the Conservative  nominee to join them.  The announcement that the long  looked for $20,000 public building  for this eity has got as far as "the  plans nearly ready and tenders  may .be called any .day" stage, is  certainly very welcome news, and  with some may occasion sympathetic outpourings in favor of the  government. It smacks slightly,  however, of the proverbial red herring, aqross^the.elector's trail, for ib  is a bit odd tbat this political  bonne bouche -should, be trotted  out at this convenient hour of the  day. We ,may .get -the government  building, and when it conies it will  be welcome���but it will have been  a .-struggle to obtain, and just faney  $20,000 in exchange for the -contri-  ibutions of Yale-Cariboo to the federal till.  Some time back the Liberal column enlarged on the $3000 appropriation for renovating the Duncan  river, and the writer was evidently  greatly tickled at being able to  state that Mr. Mara was the first to  obtain money for that purpose. As  the Liberals have continued it  yearly since thoy came in power  they evidently thought Mr. Mara's  judgment good. One would  imagine, according to the writer,  that the traffic results of this  $12,000 investment were on the eve  of equaling that of tho Soo; as a  matter of fact, a pollywog called  the steamship Marion has made a  few trips into Howser lake at-flood  time; it is even rumored that she  was able to reach Call creek���  always of course "at flood time; at  other times authentic information  says that a -man can 'stand--anywhere- in the Upper Duncan and  tli row a east. As to the twelve-  mile stretch between Kootenay and  Howser.lakes, there.are at present  two lines of rails constructed, and  with these no waterway freight  ciiviying will be tolerated. The  Liberal column conveniently forgot  to enlighten the electors as to the  rejection of tho Kettle River railroad bill last year, a proposition, of  infinitely more importance to Nelson than the snag-pulling and sand  bar leveling .scheme..on .the Duncan.

A few extracts from the report  and evidence bf the royal commission on the Chinese' immigration of  .1.8S4 nre given , below. Sixteen  years later a similar commission  has been appointed to perforin a  like service, and it is to be hoped  with a better method than was employed by its predecessor. " I?ew  people had any faith in the commission of 188*1. ,In Victoria a pub-  lie meeting was held on August  11th, to which the commissioners���  then in the city���were invited but  declined to attend.' Tlie following  sentencefrom resolutions passed at  this meeting is expressive of the  public feeling against the commission: "This meeting is of tho  opinion that the appointment by-  the Dominion government, at this  stage of the question, of commissioners to enquire into the subject  instead of legislating as requested,  is uncalled for and superfluous and  is equivalent to doubting the correctness _of the information supplied through our constitutional  representatives."  Sir-Matthew Begbic, chief justice  of British Columbia: After all that  I have said about Chinamen, I" can  lay no more claim to consistency  than anybody else in British Columbia. They are generally abused,  and yet everybody emploj's them.  1 have asserted their good qualities;  but I have never in twenty-six  years had a Chinaman in my house,  an expensive whim that nobody  else has indulged in.  E, V.-Bodwell: The wages paid  forwhite labor is.about $2 per day  on tlie average, and the cost of living 3?>); per cent greater than in  Ontario. . . .- No,matter what  price a white man will .do a job for  ' a"Chinaman will "undertake/it' for,  say 25 per cent less; but having  driven the white laborer from the  field competition ceases, and having ho competition they .are not  slow to take advantage of their  monopoly of labor privileges.  John A..BraeIe'y, a Victoria worlc-  ingman: Contractors employ Chinese, .not because their labor is  cheaper than white labor, but because they give less trouble about  pay, food, or lodgings than white  men..  . James B. Kennedy (New West-,  minster): Look at one of our sawmills employing other labor than  Chinese. In the immediate neighborhood there springs up quite a  village, with stores, schoolhouse,  church and other places of public  benefit; while a cannery with the  same capital in vested,, and employing mostly Chinese, will only show  ^one^large^barn-like^building^nfor^  their use. -  Nanaimo Trades. Association : To  be consistent, ** either the Chinese  should be placed in possession of  immense tracts of coal lands and  be permitted to ;Compete with our  capitalists, or that wo like those  capitalists should be placed beyond  all fear of competition with them.  Rev. Philip Dwyer, A. M, Victoria: The term "agitation" is  hardly the term which strictly applies to designate the feeling and  action in this case, "Self defence"  would explain the principle more  accurately.  Henry George, San Francisco :  The essential thing about Chinese  laborers is that they are cheap, and  an injury, by reducing the rate of  wages, and not lowering the price  of the article they produce.  No universal national feeling can  arise or exist in any country which  allows its labor to become degraded.  ���Prom statement of: Knights of  Labor, Nanaimo.  ���Hon Huang Sic Chen: The  Chinese are charged with the habit  of opium smoking, and-'this habit is  said to be demoralizing. If this  charge is .true, who is to blame:  The Chinese who use the vile drug,  or the ^English who introduced it  and forced the trade upon us in  defiance of the .repeated protests of  the Chinese government?  Mr. Buuster, M.P.P.���The feeling  of the masses of the people in Brit-  is h Columbia is strongly against  Chinese. I now refer to the people  who manufacture and the people  \v ho ace trying to build up the  country, and  the merchants  and  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U.

There are a few  ���would-be aristocrats who like to  put on frills, and they are fond of  having Chinese servants.  Sergeant Flewin: Their promises  (Chinese) are filthy, and their urine  is kept in barrels and tins, on tho  premises, and which is used for  fertilizing. They never take it  away uutil the vessels are full,  which aro than taken Off by Chinese  gardeners.  Municipal and provincial tax collector W. K. Bull said'that there  was about 3000 Chinese in Victoria  in 1884, but ;he was only able to  collect taxes from 750, the rest  evading payment.  He holds the balance of power  (the Chinaman) against Bridget, as  he does against trades unions.���F.  A. Bee, for the Six Companies,  Chinese claimed that the Six  Companies which are responsible  for bringing Chinamen to this  country charge nothing for transportation, but collect 2J per cent of  all the earnings of Chinamen after  they have arrived and during their  stay in this country.  As rebuttal of this the -Hon. John  .Robson, provincial ^secretary, asserted on the authority of the principals.of railway companies employing Chinese that wages were paid  not to the individual workers, but  to.the-companies, who only turned  over a portion of it to the Chinese  laborers.  Mr. Tuckfleld, of a local br.anch  of the Knights of Labor, appeared  before the royal commission, but  the chairman" (Hon. J. A. Chapleau)  declined to recognize the association as a legal body. Mr. Tuckfield  handed to the commission resolutions of the laboring classes pointing a way the commission could get,  atthe evil of the Chinese," but the  chairman said they could not investigate anything, concerning the  duties of the government or the  commission. The commission,' however, condescended to hear Mr.  Tuckfield (briefly) as a member ofva  committee of the working classes.  Mr. Booth, president of the.-spciety-,  was afterwards examined, when  Hon. Mr. Chapleau said he wouldn't  have time to hear him, and suggested he should put his views in  writing.and send them to Ottawa.  Senator Cornwall: Q.���How do  Chinese compare with whites in  point of intelligence? A.���Well,  that depends on what you call intelligence. If by that term you  mean smartness in the way of  roguery, I think they can hold  their own with any class.  Dr. Melnnes, M.P.P.: Q.���How  long do they remain (Chinese) in  the country ? A.���They generally  remain from five to .ten years.  Whenever they save from $500  to $1000. .- . . they can go back  to China nnd buy half a dozen  wives.  Senator Macdonald: It costs a  white man 50 cents a day to live in  British Columbia. . . . white  =labor=must=**--como"=do*^"r"iu��� pficeT  They prefer to be idle (white men),  unless they are starving, rather  than take less than the sum of $2 a  day. I have offered white men  $1.50. a day and they have declined  it, and consequently I have been  forced to employ Chinamen at a  low rate of wages ($1.25 a day.)  Sell on Merit.  FortSteele Prospector.  There is a growing tendency on  the part of the prospector to sell  his claim on its merits rather than  what he thinks it may be worth  with development. A good surface  showing does not necessarily mean  a good mine; this is for the mine  investor to find out. The stock  manipulator will pay more for a  prospect, or rather promise to pay  more, than the man who is in  legitimate mining, for the reason  that in one case the development  depends entirely on the sale of  stock, and in the other for this purpose comes from the pocket of tho  investor. At the present time, and  for several previous years, mining  the public has been the favorite  method, but this idea is gradually  giving way to. the commercial aspect of tliecase and it will be difficult hereafter to form companies on  a ten-foot hole in the ground with  the issue of meaningless prospectuses. Once on a legitimate basis,  the mining industry will forge  ahead and make British Columbia:  the wonder of the world, and East  Kootenay will come in for its share  of the great prosperity that is  coming.        .

CITY LOCAL NEWS  The report from the rink is that  sufficient ice has been made to secure au excellent bottom and that  the surface is now being prepared.  Tlie bazaar at the opera house  under the auspices of the ladies of  the Catholic church was well  attended yesterday and the sale of  fancy goods was lively. The affair  will be continued today.  Duncan McLean and Miss Florence Ethel Gardner, both of Ainsworth, were married yesterday at  the residence of T. C. Gray, Silica  street. Rev. Robert Frew, pastor  of St. Paul's Presbyterian church,  officiated.  The storm ou the lake and west  arm is over, and the ^weather sages  look for a rise in temperature  shortly to be followed by a winter  resembling that of '9S-*90. The  storm was in some respects one of  the worst in years.  Robert Irving of Kaslo was < in  the city yesterday. He is manager  of tlie K. R.--& N. company's lines  and was in the city on business  with the G. P. R. The new time  card between Nelson and Spokane  and Kaslo and Spokane has not  been made0public as yet.  The Nelson plumbers have not  been as busy as might have been  expected in view of the sudden cold  wave whicli struck the city. While  there have been a number of cases  of frozen pipes the aggregate is not  nearly as large as has been the case  on ..previous? occasions.       ,.'.'������  McVeigh Brothers have a gang of  men at work building the approaches for the new bridge at  Robson. When these are completed  a track will be put down so that  contractor Gunn can lay down  material for the piers and abutments on the edge of the river.  The reception to young men at  the new Congregational church tonight is open to all and promises to  be successful. On Sunday the Con-  gregationalists worship in their  new church for the first time, and  on December 23rd the dedication  services will be held, when Rev. Dr.  George of Montreal will be present.  The contract for the plumbing at  the cottage addition to the general  hospital has been let to TIebden  Brothers while William Lawr's  tender for plastering has been  accepted. The cold snap has interfered with the work on the cottage,  but building-operations are to be  recommenced when the weather  relents.'  The local hockey enthusiasts are  beginning to bestir themselves and  discuss the prospects for the season  'which might have been started  already had the cold snap been  anticipated. It does not seem  likely that Nelson will have two  distinct hockey clubs this winter as  the general opinion seems to favor  a combination of forces with two  sevens under one management.  Professor Robertson of the agricultural department at Ottawa will  pay his brother, Robert Robertson,  of Nelson a visit this week. . When  here:he will deliver a lecture on  "Technical Education," in the school  room of the Presbyterian church.  There will be no admission fee  charged, as the lecture is under the  auspices of the Women's Council.  A number of interior changes  have been made recently at the fire  "hltllr==ATiTO"-Jg'tlresl-ris=the=fi  sitting room whicli has been connected with the office by an arch-  . way. In front of the chemical  wagon the floor has been lowered  to make a graduated descent to the  door instead of having the wagon  begin the descent to the street from  the door.  Marsh Adams of Kaslo, who died  at the Sisters' Hospital in Spokane  this week, was a native of Ohio,  and came to British' Columbia from  Sedalia, Missouri, where his relatives reside. He was chief of police  of Kaslo for several years, and was  a popular official, being true to his  friends. Marsh, may you have a9  much pleasure in the next world as  yon had in this.  Provincial constable Young has  one interesting curio which he  picked up last summer below the  water line in the lake at Howser.  It is an ancient Indian corn grinder,  the smooth surface of which is  eroded by water in such a manner  as to indicate that the article must  have been immersed for Centuries.  There is nothing to indicate that  the Houser district was ever populated by Indians and the discovery  of the grinder is of unusual interest  for that reason.  OPPOSITE  P08TOFFICB.

The latest development arises out  of the'application made by R. S.  Lennie on Monday for an order instructing R. Marpole, general  superintendent, to make discovery  of documents iii-his possession relating to tlie matter at issue. A  similar order had .��� been granted  previously, but in the affidavit filed  by Mr; Marpole in reply thereto one  of the items .described was "a  certain bundle of papers numbered  from 1 to 10." The solicitors for  plaintiff did not..-regard this as  sufficiently explicit for the purposes  of action and secured the order for  discovery in order that the documents might be' 'enumerated. Yesterday R. S. Lennie was served with  a notice that the,, granting of the  order would be appealed and that  the appeal would be-argued at Victoria on the 28tli instant. The  C. P. R. claims that the documents  are privileged,, having been prepared for the information of the  company's solicitor in anticipation  of possible litigation.  PERSONAL.  .?���"  D. F.
