 ���;'i^^iv^f  DAiLY EDltiON   BV MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WilRLY EBlf\6H ��Y MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  MONDAY MORNING NOVEMBER 19  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  THE MIGHTY WHEEL OF PROEMS  Has Turned Onward in the Kootenays in 1900���Review  of the Mining Industry.  A CHRONICLE OF LEADING EVENTS INCIDENT THERETO  During the present yoar the mining industry has made remarkable  progress in  the district of which  .Nelson is the recognized commercial  ii-ntiM*.    There  has been no boom  in  the objectionablo sense of the  ,  ������xpression,  in  fact  tho  work  has  " gone forward so quietly that few  persons outside of those who  make  it, a business to keep infonned realize the amount of energy nnd capital devoted to the  development of  mineral resources during the  year.  That the country is entering upon  an   era   of exceptional prosperity  must be admitted when tho  record  of the last six  or  eight  months  is  scrutinized    even     lightly.       The  t ransportation    companies   arc   in  close  touch  with  the    mining  industry for reasons obvious  and in  t.his connection it  is  interesting to  noLe   a   remark   made by   F.  W.  Peters,   assistant  general    lreight  agent, who said:     "The production  of ore is inreasing so  rapidly that  1 believe we will soon be confronted  with a difficulty iu finding smelters  to handle the supply." Should such  a contingency arise it   is safe to  predict that  smelter facilities will  be forthcoming, indeed it is a well-  known fact that one strong corporation, the Loudon   and   Richelieu  Consolidated, has already in contemplation the erection of a smel-  t er to treat the output from their  Crawford    creek    properties,   and  other mines in  that vicinity.   The  San   Francisco    syndicate,   which  bonded several   extensive propositions in the White Giouse section'  of the Goat River district this year,  has also announced that the construction of a smelter is part ...of  their program of development, from  which it will be  seen  that lack of  smelters is not likely to become a  burning  issue  for   any   length  of  time.  The producing mines in the Nelson district, the Athabasca, Ymir,  Yellowstone, Bunker Hill and Gran-  ite-Poorman, are too well known to  require further comment. It may  he said, however, that the addition  uf the cyanide plant, now almost  completed, at the Athabasca, will  turn into bullion what has hitherto  been saved in the shape of tailings,  and that the recommencement of  work at the Granite mine should  very materially increase the values  produced at the Granite mill, now  largely employed in reducing Poor-  nian ores. It is further intimated  "tliatlbhe program of development  for the winter at the Yellowstone  mine will probably result in the  addition next spring of ten stamps  to the battery now in operation.  The inauguration of the sleighing  season, now only a matter of days,  will be followed by extensive and  regular shipments of ore from  the  Molly Gibson and Silver Hill mines.  Tho former will ship 20 tons daily  and the latter will ship 5000 tons  during the winter. Both properties are high grade shippers and are  about ready to take their proper  . places among the big mines  of the country. Nearer Nelson, the  Silver King will eventually assume  its old position at the head of the  list of producers. The policy of  the old management stripped the  mine, and it has been necessary to  develop extensively. This work is  now under way. About 00 miners  arc employed, thousands of dollars  have been expended in new plant,  and the superintendent, captain  ���Gilford, is understood to have a  free hand. When the King com-  alienees shipping it will not be on a  small' scale, nor irregularly. The  ���output, it is promised, will be larger  than ever before, and the production regulated to keep a constant  How of ore iu movement between  mine and smelter. The city of Nelson, in a sense, grew up with the  Silver King mine, and citizens generally will be pleased to sec the  property enjoying its old true prosperity. Another Toad mountain  property which has its best days  ahead is the Exchequer. The merit  of the Exchequer is admitted, and  as it comes shortly into the possession of the Athabasca company, it  goes without saying that the Exchequer will be placed on a producing basis as rapidly as a comprehensive system of development  can be carried .out.  Few sections have made greater  advances than  Morning mountain,  and this is not intended  to include  the country outside of a  radius of  three or four miles from Nelson,  beyond which the district is better  known by the names of the creeks  draining through it into  the river.  The Athabasca, of course, heads the  list  of  Morning mountain properties!   Above this is the Birds Eye  group,  whicli  will bear watching.  It -has   been   predicted   that   the  -Birds  Eye, with  its  strong  veins  and high values, will one  day  be  the   greatest   free   milling   proposition in tho Nelson camp.    Be this  as it may, the property is certainly  looking unusually well,  and" there  seems to be no further .doubt that  its owners  have a mine.    Development is to be continued all winter  and it is on the cards that a mill  will be placed on the group next  fall.  Tiie Venus group has received  considerable notoriety during the  year   for   several   reasons.       The  mine     would     now-   have     been  on the producing list had  its  management not experimented with a  rotary mill which failed to do the  work expected of it, and it  is probable that a stamp mill would have  been installed ere this had it not  been for the interesting discovery  of uranium in the mine, which has  delayed matters until a system is  evolved by which' both gold and  uranium values can be economically  recovered.-���There - has -never been-  any doubt   that   the   Venus as a  straight gold proposition is a valuable property, and with the addition of a. rare metal its merit is  now   beyond question.     The property is well equipped with  roads  and buildings and development is  being prosecuted steadily.   The incoming year will see the Venus in  full swing again.   Above the Venus  is the Juno group, from which most  satisfactory reports are to   hand.  The property is in tho hands   of  strong company which is tackling  the proposition   in a  businesslike  manner.   Development to date has  confirmed   their   estimate   of   the  Juno's  merit and with consistent  improvement the property is certain to become a producer at an  early date.   The latest addition to  Morning mountain operators is the  Rayston Gold Mines Limited whieh  controls some eight or nine claims  adjoiningthe-Venus.���Asmallcrew  is at work on the Rayston  and  its  career will be watched with keen  interest, particularly as the company's stock is largely held in this  city.  Further west is the Forty-nine  creek section which has come prominently to the fore this year. The  principal factor in this was the  bonding of the May and Jennie  group at a figure said to be $125,-  000. The French company which  acquired the property now has - 2f>  or :i0 men on the ground, and intends at the time of writing to con--  tinue development all winter. So  far as can be learned they aro well  satisfied witli the.prospect, as disclosed by their work, and have  already graded the ground for a  5000-foot flume, which points to the  construction of a mill at no distant  date. No one familiar with the  facts would be surprised to  see a dozen free milling properties on Forty-nine creek  under bond and working on a large  scale next summer. On Rover creek  the Whitewater group has been  worked all summer, and development will continue next year. The  owners of the Whitewater talk but  little of their property, but the fact  that they have planned a comprehensive program of work for next  spring and summer is significant.  On Champion creek, the Onondaga  mining company of Syracuse N. Y���  has gone into the section on a scale  which must bring the vicinity to  the attention of investors in a favorable light. The company bonded  the Yellow Jacket group last spring,  spent upwards of $30,000 in satisfying themselves as to the nierit of  the property, and then concluded  to purchase. Their next step was  to put in a ten-stamp mill, which is  now being set up on the group.  Early in the year the Yellow Jacket will be banking gold bricks in  Nelson, and the reputation of the  district will be made.  In tho Whisky creek country two  properties are rapidly advancing  toward the producing stage. The  Arlington in particular is ."a big  proposition, well-, developed, and  the general understanding is the  Hastings and British Columbia Development Syndicate purposes installing a mill in the spring or  earlier if building can be carried on  under favorable circumstances.  The Keystone, as was recounted recently in The Tribune, is being  worked under bond by L. C. Davenport of Spokane, and the adjoining  properties are also being represented to Spokane capitalists. On  Sheep creek of which the Arlington  is the show property,, much has  been accomplished in tho direction  .of development, and when spring  opens it is more than probable that  the section will be heard from in  no uncertain manner.  About Ymir there have been several features to accentuate the activity in mining circles. The Ymir  mine doubled its milling capacity  during tho year, and now has SO  stamps in operation constantly.  The Tamarac group is to enter the  shipping era of its existence at  New Years when the tramway now  under construction is to be completed. The property has large  bodies of low grade ore and promises to become an extensive producer. The Broken Hill Mining  Company will ship high grade ore  from one of the veins on the Wilcox  group and has in contemplation the  erection of a stamp mill in the  spring to handle ore from the free  milling ledges.  The Dundee has not made the  progress expected of it, largely because the management expected to  make a transfer of the property  The deal did not eventuate, but is  understood to be still pending.  Work was not suspended, however,  and development is now carried on  rin-the strong ledge uncovered by the'  disastrous fire which passed over  the district last summer. A number of minor propositions have been  worked during the year, especially  in the vicinity of the Ymir mine,  and several fine showings are  reported.  Capital has been induced to interest itself in the Cottonwood creek  district, -and the bonding of the  Robin Hood group means much for  this section. The claims bonded  arc only a small proportion of the  locations staked, and if the Robin  Hood proves as good as is. freely  predicted, the East fork will become em important factor in the  Nelson camp. Juct across the creek,  on Toad mountain, are the Red  Rock and Princess properties.which  will be worked next spring if  the Minneapolis, Minn., parties -who  hold the bonds go ahead as anticipated,   In_tlie"Ainswortirrlistrict~marked  advances have been made, first  among which is the bonding of the  Highland property. This proposition is now on a shipping basis  and should shortly be numbered  among the leading properties of  tho district. 'Work has progressed  satisfactorily on the Highlander  property, and tho diamond drill  outfit recently ordered by the management ���will bear an important  part in the future development of  tho claim. The Tariff has been  practically closed down for a couple  of months, but it is whispered that  matters are maturing which will  bring about a new order of things.  The King Solomon mines on Woodbury creek above Ainsworth have  been reorganized during the year,  and while it is early to make definite statements, the understanding  is that the property is to be developed on a large scale; Further  up Woodbury creek are the Pontiac, Tecumseh, General and Grant  claims, referred to in The Tribune  last week, all of which are expected  to become shippers this winter.  The district back of Slocan City  has made splendid progress during  the year. It is only necessary to  refer to the Arlington as a steady  shipper, the bonding of the Speculator, Mabou, Tamarac and other,  properties to demonstrate this  fact The purchase of the Hampton group above the Arlington was  another factor, and the remarkable  values obtained from a trial shipment of Hampton ore is likely to  stimulate development further. On  the Lemon creek side of the divide  the Kilo and Chapleau  well known!  claims, is very properly regarded as  one of the greatest propositions in  the Kootenays, One thjng; accomplished by the Warner M'* Her syndicate which controls the'Kilo is that  an exceptionally economical method  of treating Kilo ores has been discovered, and this will doubtless be  followed at an early "date by the  construction of a mill. The Chapleau mine will be on a p"oducing  basis- before the end of the -year unless something ainforeseen arises.  Their mill is almost ready, to start  work and should be crushing ore by  December Isty ;   -  The , foregoing conveys but a  superficial idea of the advances  in the mining industry'-during the  year, a detailed statement of which  would require a cou'ple::of editions  of The Tribune. Enough lias been  said, however, to indicate the general trend of events, "and it is-not  difficult to imagine whatwill transpire next season. In"recent years  the development of the Kootenays  has been retarded by ^.Klondike or  Nome excitements, and, perhaps,  tlie South' African war. With no  like distractions in view, it seems  as though this portion of the province will receive the .attention its  wonderful resources merit.  TEN THOUSAND TONS OF ORE  ARE    SECEIVED ' EVERY    WEEK  AT  LOCAL  SMELTERS.  The Smelting Industry Is One Worthy  to Be Encouraged by the  Government.  For the week ending Saturday,  the 17th, 4518�� tons of- ore mined  in Kootenay and Yale were received  at the smelter at Trail. As much  more was probably received at the  smelter at Grand Forks, and the  receipts at the smelter ��dt Nelson  must have been well Up, as a furnace with" a "cap'aclby"' of-, 200- tons  a day is running steadily. This  means thatl 0,000 tons of ore mined  in the province are treated every  week at smelters in the province.  These smelters use coal and coke  from mines and ovens.in British  Columbia, and every ton of the  haulage goes to railways whose  operatives live in British Columbia.  This is the kind of business that is  making British Columbia .attractive  to men who have money to venture  in speculations and investments.  All legislation that will tend to increase this business will be legislation in the right direction.  The following were the individual  shipments to the Trail smelter referred to above:  Ton-).

THE  Other Craft Suffers in-the Blizzard of  Saturday and Sunday,  Whicli  Was the Worst in Years.  The steamer Moyie .arrived in  . port at noon yesterday after the  most exciting trip in the history of  the craft. Sho had a couple of  holes in her hull tho result of an  encounter with a reef in the lake  and the crew were thankful to  escape with their lives. The Moyie  left Nelson as usual on Friday and  made the run to Kootenay Landing  without difficulty although the  waves were running at a height  which made the west arm seem like  a mill pond in comparison. The  Crow's Nest train was seventeen  hours late and the steamer started  back at her scheduled time without  waiting for the .connection. - On the  return trip her troubles commenced,  groups are J The waves broke over her bow con-  The Kilo, with its 28 j tinually, and the flying snow was  so thick as to blot out everything.  The searchlight did not penetrate  to the jackstaff and blasts of the  whistle raised no echo, thereby depriving the crew of a safeguard  ordinarily used on dark nights. Ifc  was absolutely impossible to tell  where the steamer was, and finally  she punched a couple of holes in  her bottom. At the moment tho  craft was backihgy the skipper having heard bseakers ahead. This  saved the boat from stranding, in  which event she would have  pounded to pieces in a few moments. At the point where the  Moyie met with the' accident the  shore rose precipitously from the  water, affording no landing place,  and there was no course open other  than to run to Procter, ten miles  further. The trip was a hair-  raiser. Water poured into the  craft as fast as three syphons and  a bucket brigade could keep it out.  One side of the furnace was  swamped and the other side was  only kept running by stiff doses of  coal oil. Finally the boat made  Practer and tied up. The company's office was notified by wire  and the Procter left yesterday  morning at five o'clock to take the  run to the Lauding. The Moyie  went to the shipyard, where she  will be tied up for several days to  undergo repairs.  Fifteen minutes before tho Mojde  grounded, the crew saw the lights  of a large craft ashore. It is  thought this was the Kaslo, recently launched by the K. R. & N. company. If this should prove to be  the case, it is probable the craft  may be lost, as no light draft  steamer could stand the pounding  of the sea which raged on Saturday  night for more than a few minutes.  The tug Proctor also got into  trouble on Saturday afternoon,1  She was bringing down one of the  big C. P. R. barges with twelve  cars and a rotary snow plow, when  the barge grounded hard and fast  nn the bar at Five Mile point. The  tug cut loose and ran to Nelson.  The -barge will probably be pulled  off today.' The,K R. & N. steamer,  .Alberta,-which has been-takingthe  'International's trip-, between Kaslo-  and- Nelson since Monday last, tied'  up at the railroad wharf on Five  Mile point on Saturday morning  and could not get out all day because of the he��avy wind.  The Ontario Powder Company's  tug, the Red Star, is hard aground  between the C. P. R. and Nelson  Ice Company's slip. She came  down the lake on Friday - towing a boom of logs and the launch  Maple Leaf owned by Martallette  brothers. The Star could not  handle the tow and grounded herself, while the boom broke up and  incidentally smashed the Maple Leaf  hopelessly. Captain Back and engineer Lester of the, Star remained  aboard their boat until Saturday at  noon, when they came off. The  tug is full of water and her hull is  probably damaged considerably.  MUD'S USUAL BTOET FROM LONDON  How Kruger's Visit to France is Viewed by the English Press and Public.  BULLER'S RECEPTION AND OTHER CONTINENTAL NEWS   ^_Tho_Kaslo_Ashore   The craft sighted by the Moyie  on Saturday proves to be tho Kaslo  on the beach at Fourteen Mile  point, in the main lake. On her up  trip the steamer Nelson went in  and made an effort to pull tho  Kaslo off, but without success, ft  is thought the Kaslo will escape  Avith comparatively light damage,  as she is on tho beach instead of  the rocks, as was feared.  Arrest of a Deserter.  London, November 10.���Jus. Fer-  liugcr Thompson of Ontario was arrested on board the Cunard liner  Campania, at Queenstown yesterday morning just before sho started  on her westward voyage. He came  to London last April on an extensive tour of England, Scotland and  France, patronizing the best hotels.  While in Glasgow he enlisted iu the  Roj'al Irish regiment, and ho had  been stationed at Clonel, but deserted and took passage for the United States. Thompson, who is said  to be very wealthy, is the son of a  Canadian merchant. The police  handed him over to tho military  authorities.  Increased Shipping.  Washington, November IS.���  Tlio report of commissioner of  navigation Chamberlain, made public today, shows that tlio past fiscal  year has been the most prosperous  period known to American shipping  for some years. Returns for the  current fiscal year promise an even  more satisfactory record. For the  first time since the civil war the  documented tonnage of the United  States exceeds 5,000,000 gross tons.  New   York,   November   IS.���In  this morning's special cable letter  from   London   to the  New   York  Tribune,    Isaac    N.    Fori    says:  "There is a broad streak of thick  water    in   foreign   and   political  affairs.    There would be almost a  dead calm on the continent if the  expected arrival of Mr.  Kruger at  Marseilles was not causing a ripple  of excitement.     The English press  is wisely adopting a course  which  tends to minimize this source of  disturbance.   Ohe journal has foolishly published a cartoon of Mr.  Kruger as a muzzled dog.    This is  meant   as   a hint   to the  French  government.      That    government,  however, does not need to muzzle  Mr.   Kruger,   but   to  repress   teh  ardor   of    the   excitable    French  sympathizers standing around the  dog   pit.     Otherwise   the English  press regards the reception of Mr.  Kruger   with   good    natured   indifference   and   refuses  to take  a  serious view of the affair."  Referring to the illness of the  czar, Mr. Ford says: "The illness of  tlie czar increases the inertica in  continental affairs. While reports  oii his health are reassuring, there  is still some alarm. The presumptive heir, the grand duke Michael, is  an unknown figure in Europe, and  the influence of Nicholas is one of  the.strougest bulwarks of European  peace. The illness of the czar paralyzes the energies of the Russo-  Freneh alliance and also induces inaction on the part of the powers in  China. Sine* hi3 ministers cannot  venture to act without consulting  **him-." "there-*'is a complete. uncertainty respecting the outcome of  negotiations at Pekin."  Renewed industrial activity in  both Great Britain and Germany  and the causes leading to the stimulation of trade and industry are  discussed by Mr. Ford as follows :  "Financial questions are of paramount importance in Germany and  England.  "A remarkable result of Mr. McKinley's triumph has been a rise in  all classes of industrial securities in  Germany after a long period of depression. Business in England as  in Germany has been more active  since the American election,*'  The reception of sir Redvers Bul-  ler at Windsor is referred to by  Air. Ford as follows : "The royal  borough received sir  Redvers Bul-  Tiio  and  him  car-  - *.-j-i  ���M  ���il;*  lor with every mark of lienor,  town  fluttered  with  bunting  the mayor formally welcomed  and lady Audrey.     The royal  riage awaited them and they dined  -with the quee�� and remained at  the castle over night.    They will  receive the congratulations of their  Devonshire   neighbors next week.  General Buller has conducted himself modestly since his return and  the military experts have avoided  contentious questions."  Regarding the situation in South  Africa, he says:- "The guerilla wai"  fare in   South Africa has   become  less   formidable.- The   centers   of*'  hostile operations in Dutch" terri-'  tory have multiplied, but the Boer  commanders are thinning out from  death, illness and desertions.    The  skirmishes reported  daily by Lord'  Roberts .are petty affai rs in whicli'  scores of Boer combatants are engaged where formerly there were  hundreds,   and    sometimes    thousands.       Consequently,   casualties  are light, and few prisoners are ta- :  ken.   The British army is adapting -  itself to the altered.conditions,.and*.  is gradually wearing out the ener-*  gies of its persistent and- obstinate,;  foe.   Where once there were divis-.  ions, with a complete staff organiza-'*  tion, there are- now   brigades   and ";  light equipped mobile columns sent  tin pursuitof small bands.

The Boers are,  alert, but only able to operate on a  small   scale'  against  outposts  and  their cattle and horses are constantly-,  taken f roiir them and here and there  small squads are killed, wounded or  taken prisoners.     They   have  not  had a single success in the last six  *��yeeks and the sum of their losses is  considerable.    It is not strange that  optimists are predicting the close of  hostilities by the end of the year."  '#1  3��l  i 9*1  ~-<r;  m  ���\- ���-&-  fi  A Chinese View.  New York, November IS.���The  special correspondent of the New  York Tribune in his special cable  letter from Paris this morning says:  "One of the principal events of the  week has been tho interview with  his excellency Yu Kin, Chinese  minister at Paris, published in tho  Matin. Tho chief utterances  attributed to Yu Kin are: 'There is  only one way to save Europe from  sanguinary surprises and to servo  as a foundation for pacification and  complete accord, and that is the  disappearance of that woman (the  empress) and tho restoration of the  emperor." If his excellency bo correctly quoted ho will do well to  keep out of tho reach of the empress' "celebrated cutting process."  The other utterance contains food  for reflection���"all the diplomatic  measures which could be subscribed  to will not succeed iu suppressing  the Boxers."   This would  indicate  the existence of a Chinese national  movement, and if this is so fearful  a   menace to tho future peace of  Europe, the opinion is general here  that by renewing the mistakes  of  the past  "a Chinese  question  will  bo created which will   predominate  during the whole of the  twentieth  century and oblige Europe  to continue indefinitely her present costly  efforts.    After'all this might result  in great good to the civilized powers  by   putting   an  end  to their own  squabbles, causing a general  coalition   against   the common  enemy  and realizing the Utopian dream of  a united state of Europe.  Decadence of Hawaiians.  Washington, November 18.���The  decrease of the Hawaiian  race has  been steadily lessened for  decades,   the  especially  past  several decades, especially tlie-  female population, according to the  annual report of ex-president .San-  ford B. Dole, governor of Hawaii.  The increases of part Hawaiians  tends to keep down tho number of  the pure Hawaiians. While the  figures show race progress the census  reports as to surviving children are  discouraging. Tho ex-president reports that thoro is reason that annexation is going to influence  Hawaiian character very favorably  through tho changed conditions  effected. Their old dependence on  their chief has ceased and they are  forced to rely more upon tho United  States and the footing with the  white men in the future will be  equal.  The Regular Revolution.  KiNi'iSTON, Jamaica, November  IS.���The British steamer Atrapao,  captain Copp, which left Southampton October 7th for Barbadoes,  arrived hero today from Colon,  Colombia. Captain Copp reports  that tlie insurgents had gained several important victories during tlie  fortnight that preceded his departure, and that when he left Colon  they wero marching in force against  Panama, where the stores had been  closed in momentary expectation of  an attack. The military difficulties  of the situation are complicated by  an outbreak of yellow fever.  Only Short $200,000.  Cincinnati, Ohio, November 18.  ���United States bank examiner  Tucker today took possession of the  German National Bank at Newport,  Kentucky. Examiner     Tucker*  claims that the bank is short about  $200,000." ����� 2  THE TKTOOTE.

Either would  be acceptable to the element who  favor the tramway company in its  efforts to get a share of the electric  'lighting business in Nolson, and  both are said to be "solid" with  what is commonly called the church  element. The poor but honest  business and working men will probably, later on, have something to  'say as to who will be the next  mayor of Nelson.  ���    In  proclaiming   himself just as  good a Liberal as Mr. Galliher, Mr.  Foley is blundering politically.  Mr.  Galliher is a Liberal, nominated at  a duly constituted Liberal convention, which was attended by none  but professed Liberals.   Mr.'Foley,  on the other hand, was nominated*  by delegates from  trades' unions,  whose membership is made up of  men who are just as good Conservatives as Mr. Foley is a Liberal.    In  taking part in  the convention of  the Independent Labor party they  cut adrift from  the  Conservative  party,   but    (fley   did   not    join  tlie   Liberal   party;   they became  ' Three political conventions have  been held in Kootenay since September iith last. These conventions  were attended by some thirty-odd  residents of Nelson, who attended  as duly accredited' delegates.   All  of- these men have abided by the  decisions of  their respective conventions. All are making individual  efforts to elect to office the candidate of their party; but no one of  them has-turned over his individual!  property or business ventures to  his party, however -much of their  means   they   have contributed to  the party campaign fund.    Of these  thirty-odd men, only one has been  treated asif he had no right to individual action, no right to manage  property iii which he  has an  interest, no right to vote as he deems  best, no right to bo  treated as a  private citizen.    "Tot that'man has  not offensively paraded his  views,  has not "been oh the public platform  urging mon to accept his opinions,  and is not consigning to a political  hades the men who differ with him  on political questions.   Yet the men  who have singled this one man out  for   denunciation   .and   abuse  .are  loudly clamoring for political freedom of   action.     Are they either  'ada. It is /much the same in respect  to religious views. Men affiliate  with one or the other of the orthodox churches simply because they  were brought up to believe in a  certain religious faith. If the  above is, in a general way, a correct  reasoning, have not the miners'  unions, to speak figuratively, bitten  off more than they can chew in  attempting to change public opinion to believe that all the political  ills the people suffer from can be  cured by electing to office only men  who happen to be members of  trades unions?  Carpets and Men's Furnishings  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  Departm ent.  honest or sincere?  Wiirn the miners' unions  wore  fighting   for   their    existence    in  Kootenay they had to have public  opinion in their favor in order to  win.    Public opinion  was against  them, because of the supposed action of the miners' unions in the  Crenr   d'Aienes,     Members of tho  unions were denounced as murderous   thugs  and   destructive anarchists.   Public opinion was finally  won, however, and the unions have  increased in number and are strong  in membership.   That fight was for  an eight-hour day and a fair day's  wage, an issue in which every man  working in a mine had a direct individual interest.    Now these same  miners'   unions   have    decided   to  make another fight;   one in  which  individual miners cannot possibly  have any great direct individual  interest.    The fight, this  time, is  for   political   supremacy.      Public  opinion on  political questions  is a  good  deal like  public opinion on'  religious views; it is to a great extent inbred.     Men are  Conservatives because when boys they heard  their fathers say that the Conservative party could do no wrong,  and men are Liberals because when  boys they heard their fathers declare  that-George Brown and Alexander  McKenzie were the only true exponents of political wisdom in Can- J F, Green and .Tolm Houston? After  District Union   No.' 0, Western  Federation of Miners, has an official  newspaper organ.     It is named the  Industrial World, and   it   is published at Rossland.    It is to be presumed this newspaper organ voices  the opinions of the men at the head  of    the   Western   Federation- of  Miners in this province, if it does  not voice-the views of the men who  make up the membership   of the  different miners' unions in the federation.    The president of District.  Union No. 0 is James Wilks of Nelson ; the secretary is Alfred' Parr  of Ymir.   Now it is' a -well-known  fact that both ''Mr. Wilks and Mr.  Parr were opposed to the unions  taking independent action in  the  present contest for member of the  house of commons.     The one spoke  against it in a convention  of delegates of tho  unions, and even refused   to accept a  -nomination at  their hands.    The other was, and  presumably is yet, president of the  Liberal Association of Ymir.  They,  no doubt, had reasons satisfactory  to themselves for thinking and acting as they did.    A majority of the  delegates in the convention referred  to   insisted   that   a  candidate   be  named, to enter the- contest, and  Christopher Foley, a-work ing miner  of   Rossland, was named   and  accepted the nomination, although he,  even, had expressed himself as op-  posed-to-independent^-political-ac-  tion at this  time.    Mr. Wilks and  Mr. Parr, as good union  men, are  supporting the   candidate   of the  unions.      If   such action  on their  part  is   to  bo   commended,  why  should men who" affiliate with the  Conservative and the Liberal  parties be condemned, and even traduced,' for abiding by the action  taken by regularly constituted conventions of their respective parties;  more particularly when   the conventions of both the Liberal and  the Conservative parties were held  before   the   labor   unions decided,  even, to call a convention ?     Why  should the newspaper organ of the  Western Federation of Miners, of  which Mr. Wilks is president and  Mr. Parr secretary, be unwilling to  concede to Smith  Curtis of Rossland, Thomas L. Taylor of Trout  Lake, Robert F. Green   of Kaslo,  and John  Houston  of Nelson, the  same rights and privileges as have  been accorded Mr. Wilks  and Mr.  Parr? Are they not just as worthy  of fair treatment and fair  play at  tho hands  of men who   work in  tho   mines    as    are    Mr.   Wilks  and     Mr.     Parr ?

Did  they, as members of the legislature,  vote for any measure that would in  any   way,   directly   or indirectly,  nullify-'legislatibn enacted for the  benefit of organized labor  in this  province?    If they did not, why  are-they now denounced and abused  for doing what-Mr. Wilks  and Mr.  Parr are doing,-that is, supporting  the candidates placed in nomination  by the political parties with which  they have affiliated in  the past?  Smith Curtis attended the convention of the Liberal party at Revelstoke on September- 5th as a delegate.    That convention made W.  -AT"G alii licT^tlier-candidate- o f- the-  party, and Mr. Curtis, as an honorable man, is abiding by tho action  of his party.    Were he to do otherwise he would-not be an honorable  man.    Robert, F. Green and John  Houston attended the convention  of the Conservative party at Revelstoke on September 15th as delegates.    That  convention  made A.  II. MaeNeill ihe candidate of tho  party,, and as honorable men, Mr.  Green and Mr. Houston are giving  the party candidate loyal support.  Now these three men are threatened"  by   the   newspaper organ of   the  Western Federation of Miners with  political   death for daring   to   be  honorable.     If the Western Federation of Miners is to be used as a  club to beat into political graves all;  men *who have the courage of their  convictions,   Thk   Tribu.ve   is   of  opinion that the declaration should  be made over the signatures of the  president and secretary of District  Union No. 0, for then it would have  authority and weight.  Thr iFaveiiing '- Miner occupied  nearly a column of space, usually  devoted to extolling the virtues of  the Bonnington Falls Power Gom-,  pany, to elucidate its relationship  to the political-parties of the day.  In fulfilling;this task, it reveals its  gaping political wounds and incidentally  explains its stand in the  provincial   contest   of    last  .'July.  Careful perusal   of the   Miner at  that-time- seemed to indicate that  its   support was; divided between  Mr. Fletcher, an avowed follower of  Charles   Wilson, and   Dr.   Hall, a  meek and lowly supporter of the  turbulent    .Toseph    Martin.     One  page of the paper pinned its faith  to the-undying principles  of Mr.  Wilson,  while   the   other  gloated  over what at that time seemed to"  be   the -demise of Tiirnerism.   It  was no great secret that the Turner  party, as. it was called, denounced  Mr. Wilson as a- usurper, and refused any political affiliation  with  that   gentleman or   his followers.  On the   other   hand, Mr. Wilson  strongly-   denounced   Mr.   Turner,  and is it  not a fact that AV. A.  -Macdonald-ron���whom-"-Mr.-Fletclier-  leaned   throughout the  campaign,  grow almost furious at the suggestion offered at Ymir, that. he and  his candidate were followers- of Mr.  Turner and  Mr. Eberts?   Yet, the  Miner,   which   received   a   goodly  sum from Mr. Fletcher for advertising, etc.,' on one pngo,  shrieked  itself hoarse for the Wilson candidate, and on   the other, page was  quite   as    emphatic    in   declaring  "Tiirnerism is dead."    Now, after  .a lapse of four months, it declares  that "in provincial affairs it (the  Miner) believed the party associated,  with the name of 31 r. Turner was  the. least hypocritical and the most  honest and progressive, and supported   it."      If  the   Miner   were  really honest, it would confess that  at no time under its present management   has  it known where .it  stood.    It simply quails, when its  tyrannical taskmasters   crack . the  lash, and abases itself in the presence of the Almighty Dollar.  SAW & PLANING MILLS  Limited.

The  country villages and districts voted  for Dewdney, the Conservative candidate, as the table published below  shows.    Yale-Cariboo is a large district, and has no less than 140 polling places, exclusive of the  10 incorporated   cities.   The   10   incorporated cities . will poll 4000 votes.  The 140 polling places inside the incorporated cities will poll not less  than 5000.   Will these places follow  the  lead   of  the   country polling  places   in   Victoria, Westminister,  aud Nanaimo districts ? If they do,  John   McKane,   the   Conservative  candidate will come to the cities  with a majority that W. A. G.illiher  may not be able to overcome,   Sandon will give candidate Foley a majority, and. McKane will get more  votes , than ��� Galliher.    Kaslo   will  give Galliher a, majority.   Nelson  will probably do. the. same, as it is  Galliher's   home   town.     Rossland  will break even between McKane  and Foley.    Grand Forks will give  "Galliher a majority; so will Greenwood.    Phoenix  will -give -Foley a  majoritj-, and split even "oh Galliher  und   McKane.     Vernon   will   give  McKane   a    majority,     Kamloops  will give Galliher a small majority,  as* will also Revelstoke.    McKane  will poll 2000 votes in the  country  and 1350 in the cities, or a total of  .l.iaO votes.    Galliher will get 1S00  votes in the country and 1500 in  tho cities, or a total of 3300.   Foley  will get 1200 votes in tho. country  and 1150 in the cities', or a total of  2350.

He stated thatv W. G.  Galliher had signed a petition  against the, eight-hour law. This  is absolutely untrue, and a telegraphic enquiry of Mr. Galliher on  Saturday elicited the following reply:  "McKane's statements re eight-'  hour law untrue.        Galliher."  S. S. Taylor Q.

The eight-hour law is not only a  provincial, not a Dominion issue,  but it is also a dead issue. -There  is no excuse for attempting to drag  it into Dominion politics, especially  where, as in this base, the allegations are absolutely-false." It would  be interesting to know who it was  that thus deliberately misled Mr.  ��� McKane.  In the meantime the Liberal campaign is progressing most favorably. Mr. Sif ton's meeting in Rossland, notwithstanding the weather  and the McKane incident, was an  unqualified success, as was his  meeting yesterday at Trail. Today-  he and his brother, the Hon. Clifford  Sifton, speak at Grand Forks and  tomorrow at Greenwood. "- Frank  Oliver, M.

GITY LOCAL NEWS  A number of small boys had "the  first skating of the season yesterday on the flats east of the C. P. R.  docks,  J. J. Duncan has resigned the position of secretary of the Nelson  Tramway Company, and expects to  leave for Arizona shortly.  A. L. McKillop aud H. Harris  have been appointed special examiners at an examination for efficiency in the practice of assaying, to  be held in Nelson on December 3rd  and succeeding days, ���  The chief of police has notified  the principals of city schools to  warn their pupils against sleighing  on the sidewalks. The pastime is  regarded as dangerous to pedestrians, and will not be permitted.  The tramway company got their  cars moving Saturday afternoon,  about 3 o'clock. The break in the  line was located 10 miles, west of  the city where a tall pine had fallen  across the feed wire. In repairing  tlie break Frank. Pullen received a  painful but not dangerous shock.  Hon. Clifford Sifton reached Nelson last night on tlio steamer Nelson and was met by a number of  Liberal stalwarts who, after ex-^  tending .1 warm welcome to tlie  city, congratulated him warmly on  his :personal victory in Brandon  and on the government's success  throughout the Dominion. Air.  Sifton is scheduled to leave this  morning for the Boundary and to  return to Nelson for a meeting on  Friday night.  W. 11. Bullock-AVebster, chief of  provincial police, and constable  Young raided a cabin near Roberts'  ranch on Saturday and found a  pair of oars stolen last August from  Austin Appleton of Eight Mile  point. James Laughtou, the owner  of the cabin, was arrested on the  charge of theft. The cabin was  stocked with hams, bacon, tools,  canvas, wall paper and crockery,  which the officials believe are also  stolen goods.  The telegraph wires came out  second best in the contest with  Saturday's storm, but the system  was patched up on Sunday and was  in good order again'last night. The  wire between here and Kaslo was  particularly "unfortunate. In one  stretch of a mile 31 trees fell-across  the wire and.this was no sooner  cleared up when the line broke  down a short distance further on.  When this was repaired the line  went down between Balfour and  Kaslo, but the third break was  quickly repaired.  BACK FROM THE KLONDIKE  A Railroad That Pays.  Severin Ferland, an old Nelson  boy who has spent the last three  years in tho Klondike, is in the city  for a short time the guest of his  brother A. Ferland. Mr. Ferland  went north with the Mackenzie-  Mann syndicate whicli was to have  built the Yukon railroad, and has  been connected with the railroad  business throughout his stay there.  For tlio last year he has been with  the Whitehorse railroad in the  capacity of checking agent. This  1 ineJs-said-toJaejthejiiost^Yalnable.  dust is shipped about, but familiarity invariably breeds the contempt  which has caused the producers to  take what looks like long chances.  Referring to the labor conditions  prevailing in the north, Air. Ferland says there are no trades unions  because there has been nothing to  demand co-operation. The wage  scale ranges about 50 cents per  hour, and it is more common than  otherwise for men to work twelve  to fourteau . hours ; per day in the  summer, when there is practically  no night for several months.  Board costs about $12 per week.  The rule heretofore has Keen that  no man who really desired to go to  work in the spring needed to be  idle, and as many men came south  at the close of the season he saw no  one suffering for work at good  wages.  An Unlucky Miner.  Neil Nicholson, a miner from the  Ymir mine, is lying at the general  hospital suffering from a compound  fracture of the hip. He was caught  by: a rush of 'rook- in ---a- stope and  pinned down in such a manner that  tho six niineiy*'a^'rwprk with him  were unable to release him from  the pilo. Nicholson was laid up for  some time with a broken collarbone and had just secured the job  at the Ymir and been at work for a  couple of hours when the accident  happened on Saturday. Dr. Rose  reduced the fracture.  Land Grant to the Troops.  Toronto Globe: We have the  good fortune to be able to communicate this morning to our returning soldier lads two pieces of pleasing news.. The first concerns our  Ontario boys alone; the second is  of interest to every volunteer who  went, to South Africa from the.  Dominion. The first is that the  Ontario government' is determined  to give every soldier who volunteered in'Ontario a grant of 100  acres of land; the other is that Air.

In  its first year the road earned a  profit equal to one-half the capital  invested and this year's business  paid off the entire cost of construe?  tion, rolling stock and maintenance  and left a snug profit beside. The  charges for transporting freight  range from three to four cents per  pound and the freight business is  very heavy. The, passenger fare  from White Horse to Skagway, 110  miles, is $20, and three to five  coaches crowded with passengers  are hauled over the linedaily during  the summer.  Air. Ferland has done no mining,  but in his capacity of checking  agent has handled many hundreds  of thousands of dollars' worth of  dust in transit. The banks ship  the dust in eases about the size of a  Lee-Enfield cartridge box, each containing 350 pounds. These cases  are piled up on the platforms and  trucked about with as little regard  for their valuable contents as is  bestowed on ordinary merchandise.  As it would take four men to get  away with a box of bullion, and no  one could get far enough away to  escape detection, the danger of loss  is reduced to a minimum. On one  occasion Air. Ferland checked  through a shipment of 42 cases, the  aggregate value of which was something over $3,000,000. Aside from  the bank shipments, many companies and individuals ship their  dust in ordinary boxes made after  the style of the ��� boxe3 in  which axes are forwarded and  frequently these are not sealed, but  merely closed with nails.

The prophets of the  sect have fixed a near.date for the  end of time and tlie revolution of  all terrestrial things. The sect  originated in Scotland and tho  flight of tho faithful will be taken  from some mountains there.
