 ��� r_%_l  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  *-V*J?I  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  ���  - *    ** .&.  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSQST:  TUESDAY- .MORNING NOVEMBER 20 1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  THE CHBONICLE OF MININB SEWS  Information   Regarding   Sandy    Creek,   Which    Runs  Through  the  Great  Free  Milling Belt. ,  ITEMS FROM KETTLE RIVER AND OTHER MINING SECTIONS  ' A report of an extensive deal  pending in connection with Sandy-  creek mining properties has directed  attention to this section of the  free milling district west of Nelson.  Whether or not this particular  proposition is taken np, it is likely  that the section will receive the attention of promoters when the  mining .season opens' up. Sandy  creek rises on Morning mountain  and ilows almost south to Koote-  nay river, draining the west . slope  of the mountain between Eagle and  Smelter creeks. There are' indications along the banks that the  creek was worked in the seventies  by placer miners, but there is nothing _on record to indicate that pay  dirt was' ever taken out in any  quantity. The creek-was first prospected for quartz in 1896 by George  De Maine,' who is still largely interested in the section. Since then  a large" number of locations have  been staked, and in some cases considerable work done. The formation is diorite and'granite with eon:  tact veins varying from three to  ten feet^in width and carrying low  to medium free milling ore.  A-number of claims are staked  on the east fork of the creek in the  vicinity   of   the Venus  and Juno  ��� -creeks; most of   which' have been  ' mentioned in connection with the  Eagle creek section. On 'the main  ���creek is tho   Jumbo  group owned  , by George De Maine and comprising  the .Tumbo, Jumbo Fraction, Merri-  iield, Sovereign, Morning.Glory and  Gold Standard. - About $1500 has  been expended on the. claims and  they show np well.." "There "are  several veins ranging from three "to  eight feet in width and ,a fair  average of the ore is probably $10  ner.ton. Adjoining the Jumbo is  'the Superior group owned. by Ed.  Brannigan.- The group consists of  four claims arid has several promising veins which * have been uncovered at various points. The  aggregate of work is not sufficient,  however, to demonstrate the merit  of the property.   -  Down the creek from the Jumbo  are the Last Chance, Tiger and  Kitchener claims belonging to Andrew Thorn, on which considerable  work has  been done.    One  vein is  "ten feet in width and has been  prospected by a twenty-foot shaft.  East of this aro the Golden Key,  Gold'Prospect, Salisbury and Missing Link claims, owned by T. J.  -- Scanlaur-John-Richardson-and- Gr  DeMaine. These locations were  staked but recently, and no work  has been done beyond sufficient to  indicate the presence of several  veins similar to those of the  vicinity.  To the east of the last-named  claims are a couple of locations  owned by A. J. Marks. S. M.  Brydges and others have tho Kingston claim, on which enough work  has been done to show the property  to be promising.. .John McAlmon  owns the Keystone and J. MeLeod  has the Golden Key, the second  claim of the same   name on   the  ' creek. These properties were  worked - during the summer with  satisfactory results.  These surface showings on Sandy  creek are very promising and with  . the increase in values as depth is  secured such as has been the history  of other sections in the same formation, there are a number- of pros-  . pects which might become extensive  producers ��� 6ft J1- comparatively  economical basis.  It is once more reported that the  Galena Farm property, near Silver-  ton, is to resume work and this  time the date for operations to begin is set for the spring. Similar  rumors have been circulated before  and proved inaccurate and there  seems to be no official statement on  which to base the latest report.  Should the management decide to  begin work again, the buildings,  plant and mine aro in splendid  condition, although the property  has been closed down hard  and fast for almost four years.  Two men have been retained in the  camp to keep the pumps going and  tho machinery in good shape so  that no delay would be encountered.  The fact that the company has  taken such excellent care of the  property indicates that "they have  confidence in the merits of the  mine. The Galena Farm, was purchased by its present owners at a  large figure, said to be a quarter of  a million.         ���  The London & B. C. Gold Fields  has seven men at work on the Olds  property in the Kettle River  country. The proposition comprises -three claims at the headwaters of the main fork and is regarded as a big free milling property, the owners having refused  to bond the group last summer at  $100,000. The principal ledge is  five feet wide, and average values  of $30 are claimed for it. The London & B. C. Gold Fields has an option on the group and are prospecting the claims thoroughly.   ,  ���Dunsmnh-.-and Rithet of Victoria,  who purchased the - well known  Monashee group in the Kettle River  country this fall, have not started  work on the group as yet and the  general impression is that they will  defer operations until spring. The  prospectors interested in the Kettle  River claims are awaiting with  keen interest the course of events  at the Monashee, believing that if  the mine is worked on a proper  basis, "such as will be the case with  the new owners, it will become a  big producer and incidentally give  the district the impetus necessary  to attract attention. From. all reports to .hand the Kettle River  country is particularly .well adapted  to working mineral properties satisfactorily. .The district is not too  wet nor does it lack water, supplies can be procured readily and  almost anywhere by  while the climate  transported  pack trains,  moderate.  is  The sheriff has seized a quantity  of mining, property in the Ainsworth camp to.satisfy .a judgment  against the Britannia Company,  which was represented by the late  Alen Haley. The seizure includes  the interest "held by Haley as trustee in the No. 3 claim, the No. 1 Extension Fraction, the Oneida claim  and the concentrator at the No. 1  mine. The judgment is for $17,794  and interest at 0" per cent since  August last. '  Acting under the advice of  Charles Parker, consulting engineer,  the Referendum property has been  shut down until spring. It was  found difficult to handle the mine  at this season owing to the depth  of water in the shaft.  Mining Records.  Yesterdays mining records were:  Locations���The Republic Fraction,  on the west side of Eagle creek, by  Joseph Duhamel; the Lucky Monday, on the north side of Champion  creek a mile from the Columbia,  river; the Pat, adjoining the Yellowstone claim, by the Yellowstone  Mines, Limited.

The General Committee in Session at  New York Make an Onslaught  r  on Their Sister'Religion.  New York, November 19.���Two  -fierce onslaughts on the church of  Rome enlivened the proceedings at  today's session of'the general missionary   committee. *. The  general  committee, which' is composed of  all the bishops and leading divines  in the Methodist church of America,  has   been  in session  daily at St.  Paul's'   M. E.   church   since   last  Wednesday.    Tlie first person to  advance to this attack was bishop  Goodsell   of   Tennessee.      In   the  course of an address on the work  of .the Methodist .Episcopal church  in various parts of Europe he had  occasion to speak of the work done  in Italy and conditions obtaining  "there. - It-is , in the recital of the  latter that the bishop .used such  strong language against the church  of Rome.    "In northern Europe, for  instance    in"' GeVmany . and   the  Scandinavian countries," the bishop  said, "we have made satisfactory,  progress, though, *we ' have had a  great deal of indifference.and even  opposition to contend 'with..  "Statistics show that we have'not  made as much headway during the  first 35 years in:Eiirope as we'have  in the same period in this country,  which offers a more congenial- soil  for our creed. ^Southern-Europe  the conditions are somewhat different. There - tho struggle has been  harder. There;~ are many who  doubt whether, we may have any  work at all., in Italy, that land of  superstition.' and-- . priestcraft,  whether we could'ever hope' to accomplish.anything there in the face,  of the tremendous .presTs "of adverse  thought with ���''\viiich,'-w'e; are 'confronted. The fact is that Ave projected one* of our -workers into  Italy. He soon made up his mind  that in Rome he had to do as the  Romans. He began training the  young by taking them into our  schools and seminaries. " The work  is slow, 'but its value has been recently testified to by the pontiff  himself, who has honored us by excommunicating everyone, teachers  and pupils alike, connected" with  our institutions of learning. In the  effort to preserve for himself the  triple crown of papacy- he has issued a sweeping interdict against  the schools, and every one passing  through their gates. This/how-  ever, has only made us more determined to wipe out a system which  has created out of- the former man  of empire a cringing beggar with a  monkeyand-ft-griiid-organ-r5   The applause which greeted this  sally was deafening.. Tho next  speaker threw down the gauntlet  to the Church of Rome in terms as  direct and condemnatory as did  bishop Goodsell. This was the Rev.  Dr. C. W. Drees, who for a number  of years had been identified with  the work of the Methodist Episcopal church in South America and  was appointed, by the committee to  take over the supervision of the  work among the Spanish-speaking  nations on this, continent. Besides  bishop Godsell, lie is the only member of the committee who in the  course of his labor has come in  direct contact with the work of the  Roman Catholic church.  In his address Dr. Drees said: "A  former speaker has said that a condition where half of the world is  pagan and the other half Christian  cannot endure long. The same can  be said with as much truth of a  state of affairs where Christendom  is divided into two camps,- with  Protestantism on one side and Greek  and. Roman Catholicism on the  other. The time is now,-upon us  when a new question which appears in the Protestant.reform will  begin to agitate the world and demand to be pushed to its final issue.  After slumbering for four centuries  this self same question was  awakened through the last act of  infamy of the Pontiff in declaring  himself infallible. . Within 24 hours  after that blasphemous declaration  had been written on the triple  crown of Rome, the Prussian armies  invaded Catholic France. Forty-  five days later the battle of Sedan  was fought with Protestant Prussia  the victor, and twenty days had.  only elapsed when the united armies  entered the "holy city" where the  pope held sway, bringing with  them carloads.of bibles. The pope  lost his temporal power and since  that day the creed has been weakening.  "The Roman church at one time  held sway everywhere, but now  both that church and Spanish domination have fallen off their high  pedestals. When Spain is arraigned  the Roman Catholic church should  be arraigned with that power as  co-respondent. Ever since Isabella  signed away Spain to the pope  there has been an illegitimate alliance between statecraft and priestcraft against human liberty and  human progress."  . The applause was^as tremendous  as it was spontaneous. Dr. Drees  said in - conclusion that a most  promising field among the Spanish  speaking populations in America  was opening in Porto Rico and advised the committee to spare neither  expenso nor labor to oust Rome in  that island.

New Haven, Connecticut, November 19.���When W. D. Holmes, who  was once rich, fell down in alcoholic  coma in the Hoffman,. House, New  York, a few days ago and died  friendless and alone of whisky and  opium .poisoning, the last ��� chapter  was written in a story of love and  millions.  Holmes, who sowed.tlie wind.and  reaped the whirlwind,- left, behind  him. a wife,.an actress,,who was  driven from,his side by. his wild  habits'. She was.Marjorie ReaTyea,"  who left here for ��� New York tonight after closing an engagement  at the theatre here. She has gone  to settle up the affairs of her unfortunate husband. ��� She told the  following:  I was married to Mr. Holmes, on  July 11th, 1894, in Fargo, North  Dakota. Everything looked bright.  We believed we had a life of happiness before us.  Tho wedding took place at the  largest church in Fargo. It was  followed by a big supper at the  Hotel Metropole, at which one hundred guests were present.  Unfortunately the conviviality  that marked that occasion in my  husband's career continued. His  life was one big festival. Ho never  drew a sober breath.  -^���He���was- as- extra vagai.t-"as-his-  friend Thaw, the man who gave  such extravagant ontertainraents  at Pittsburg. Holmes came from  that city, and was not only a friend  of Thaw, but was like him in his  reckless methods.  My husband was always liberal  to me. He gave me a four story  brown stone flat house in New York  City, a victoria and a footman and  treated rae to a year's travel in  Europe. He gave me $20,000 worth  of jewelry, principally diamonds,  and a lot of antique furniture,  which I still have in my flat in  New York.  ���He graduated at Cornell in the  class of 1881, and he knew overy  one. In Germany Andrew D.  White entertained us, and in Paris  James Gordon Bennett.  Mr; Holmes was a man any  woman might be proud of, but  drink was his ruin. Twice I took  him to a Keeley cure establishment  once in New York and once in  White Plains. ���������'������'���,.'"/���->�����,-  But nothing could bo done for  him. Whisky, that awful sdul-  killer had him; in- its grip. He  could not escape.vJ was: forced to  leave him.. I could not spend my  life upon the horrible task of nursing a drunkard who grew worse  every year.  I have my husband's will in my  possession. I know its contents. I  am his sole heir. I think that he  left some valuable personal property, but I believe all the real  estate he owned was mortgaged up  to its limit of value.  We never had any children, but  Mr. Holmes had a son by his flrst  wife, who was Miss Lillian  Nearly  Ready and  the  Are Being Printed.  Specifications  TENDERS FOR THE WORK MAY BE INVITED BY FRIDAY  The Tribune has incurred some expense to find out where the town  is at with respect to the public building, for which an appropriation of  $20,000 was made at the last session of parliament.     Our correspondent  at Ottawa was instructed to interview the public works department in *  regard to the matter and he wired the following:  Ottawa,- November.^.���Your message- received.

London, November 19.���Dr. Morrison wiring' to the Times from  Pekin Sunday, says: "In communicating the punishment edict dated  Sian Fii, November 14th, to the  foreign envoys Li Huug Chang submits it as the final punishment the  court is able to inflict and repeats  the stereotyped plea of plenipotentiaries, namely, that the emperor  threatens himself and prince Ching  with severe punishment if they fail  to induce the representatives of the  powers to accept the compromise.  The mildness of sentences excites  ridicule and strengthens the minis-  ters.in their determination to de-  mand tho death penalty. The death  punishments are illusory. Prince  Tuan is merely banished to his  home and others undergo merely  lowering of rank. Perpetual imprisonment means a life of honored  retirement."  Interesting Military Maneuver.  An interesting experiment in the  transportation of cavalry across  a stream was recently made by the  Fifteenth Regiment of Dragoons.  The problem was to ferry the  regiment, men, horses and baggage,  across a river in boats improvised  of the troopers' lances and waterproof cloth. A quantity of this  material sufficient for two boats  was carried on the back of a single  horse.  The experiment, which was made  on the little river III, near Strass-  burg, was a complete success.  . The boats were put together in  less than twenty minutes. Lances  served as oars as well as for the  frames of the boats. Each boat  .carried four men who held tho  'bridles of their horses, whieh swam  behind the boat.  The whole regiment, about 900  strong, crossed. the stream in less  than an hour and a half.  A few weeks ago a similar experiment was made on the Rhino near  tho floating bridge at Gamsheim.  The river, which at this point is  more than 600 yards wide, was  crossed in less than three hours by  two regiments using the samo  methods and materials as' in the  Strassburg experiment.

They  kept up  this    vilification'   and    abuse-" all  through   the    year    1891),   during  which  time the man whom  they  were abusing occupied  no offici��al  position.  This-year the same course  has been pursued.    The people of  Nelson   are   now    slandered    aud  scolded for daring to elect that man-  to   offices   of    responsibility    and  trust,   for   no other reason   than  1 localise he is interested in the public  cation  of a newspaper that competes with the Miner-for  the  business of Nelson   and   the . country  tributary to it.     Competition   in  any branch of business is   legitimate, and the fittest survive.   If  THE.  DRINKING  qualities in the cup are the important features  to be considered in purchasing tea.

The Miner under its present management, simply disgusts  people with its' coarse abuse of  John Houston, who happens to be  an employee of Thk Tin hunk.  Tiik Liberals are giving their  party great praise for introducing  a fair-wage clause in all contracts  in which the Dominion government  is interested. The city council of  Nelson in 1897 caused the following  words to be inserted in every contract let by the city council during  that year: "And the said contraet-  ** ors further covenant and agree,  " that in consideration of * 95 per  '���cent of the value' of the work  " done being * paid to them fort-  " nightly, that they' will pay each  '* workman engaged upon the work  " not less'than the daily wage of  ���$2.50; payable fortnightly,-aud  " that the engineer shall have the  " right to discharge any workman  " engaged at a lesser rate at any  "time upon 12 hours notice."  POLITICAL'-- POINTERS.  There is no truth in the rumor  current on the street yesterday  that senator Tern pieman of Victoria  had the Grit sack while in Nelson.  The senator is an old friend of both"  the chaii-manand the, treasurer of  the Conservative, campaign committee of Nelson, and being one of  the most liberal men -in the province, he would have offered to di-,  vide with them had ho had anything to divide.  "All their victories are won the  day before election?,"is the way ��  well-known Eastern politician sizes  up the Conservatives of Brandon,  Manitoba. "Yes; and that is the.  way the Conservatives from Brandon who are in Nelson have won  elections since coming here," was  the retort of a well-known Nelson  politician.

'"'  The f,llossland correspondent of  the Galliher committee is a trifle  weak on facts "judging by the report in today's Liberal column. Mr.  Sif ton's meeting is reported to have  been an unqualified..'success'; unbiased reports'��� of same, however,  state that it was very/* feeble and  that John McKane carried everything before him, particularly on  that petition which Mr. Galliher  duly signed and over which there is  much ado in the Liberal camp, contradictory telegrams notwithstanding. As a matter, of fact Mr.  Sifton did not speak in Trail as  reported, his voice having failed  him under the strain of bolstering  -up the Nelson barrister's cause.  There will be a Liberal landslide on  December 0th most assuredly, for  that party's principles are built on  sand.  The advent in our midst of the  "Hon. Clifford Sifton and brother  and other smaller lights in the Liberal government conveys the im-.  pression that Lawyer Hill is by no  means to enjoy a walkover on December 0th. A clear month will  have elapsed by then between the  main elections and this bye one,  which will give a large body of  electors' time for meditation and  sway a considerable number who  were at first carried away' by the  shout that went up that sir Wilfrid  had swept the country.' Recounts  are modifying this somewhat, nnd  the Liberal-Conservative party- is  as much alive as ever, and without  doubt will benefit largely by this  defeat, A now and more progressive platform will arise, baf-ed on  standard ideals and traditions, yet  standing square to the four winds  that blow and free from unholy  alliances with those of different  tongue or tho deceiving smiles of  Romish emissaries.  ���^rP' 00 ' 0*' 0* ' 0*' 0*'0*' & ' &' 0* ' *-*' i-0 '-***.! j&'j**' 0jt>:.00- ��!^ <��������* -ST* >5 ������aaS ��� **5 -���aST* ^^'S^ ���f--*^ -S' a-S1. *^.*afi**: *<a^:'&��&**---  TV'*"'-'  m  <& CO  'MY-  to  to  Dress ^^��^,  Carpets and Men's Furnishings  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  -fta.

London, October 20.—It is doubtful if interest in tlie general elections caused discussion equal to
that -now going on nhont the invasion of the American jockeys and
their followers at the race meetings.
At first there was 'somo irritation
under the ridicule aimed at the'riding of Tod Sloan, whose style was
something new and utterly opposed
to all turf traditions, but  when his
7 success continued, the chafing became apparent in several quarters.
Sloan was not the first American
jockey given a mount at P'nglish
meetings. Donahue made no mark
here, and Sims, who rode for Dwyer
and Croker, was not a brilliant
winner. Sloan was fortunate in
the beginning, and then good
mounts came to him. The Keiff
brothers, liigby and Martin, and
later Danny Maher, followed him.
All have achieved success, and the
smallest and youngest of the lot,
tiny Lester Reiff, is now at the head
of the list of winners for the season.
Mornington, Cannon, Sam Loates,-
and Jones have seen their laurels
fade, and though Loates has taken
nearly as many firsts as any of the
Americans, he has been in so many
more races that his average is.
lower than that of the three leaders-
among the visitors.
Naturally, this has disturbed the
usual course of events. Followers
of the races have taken to backing
the American riders without regard
to the quality of their mounts, and
have won.heavily. This might be
regarded*with toleration if attend-/
ing circumstances had not given
scent to the suspicion of sharp-
practice. The American method of
riding with -short stirrups,, the
jockey crouched low over the
shoulders .of his mount, with, his
hands low,- prevents a perfect' control, and there are many instances
where a foul is claimed that might
be unintentional or impossible to
avoid'through his helpless posture.
Sloan has been , disciplined -by the
stewards of the Jockey Club for
four riding, and his excuse is not a
good one. "Worse than this, however, is the charge, made opeuly by
several of the turf-writers, that
drugs are used ..on the homes, and
AV-onderfi.il bursts-of speed induced
on occasion that could not be repeated, oi*, at least, were not
repeated. ,
Another fact that has stirred up .
feeling.is the engagement by the
prince of Wales of Tod Sloan. It.
is said that .$25,000 was paid the
jockey as a retainer, the largest ever
known in turf history, and criticism of this  royal liberality was
^general. Now it, is  rumored  that
the jockey has been released, on account, of the attacks made upon
American methods and the reputation of the followers of the visitors,
who include some sportsmen, of
questionable standing. Lord William Beresford, the first to encourage the visiting riders,, is still...'firm'
in favoring thatn, as is sir cWaldie
(iriftith.. Thei attack -by lord Diir-
ham. at a speciaU.nieethig of the
Jpckey-Clnb, a report of -which np-
pe.ared.ih;the Racing Calendar, lias
. so .changed . the atmosphere, that
somei of their., patrons are sure to
follow the ..example,, of the prince of
Wales. Lord Durham said, that the
present condition of the,:,turf is
worse, than it has been for. twenty-
live years, and he attributes,if entirely to the.; American influence.
He declared .that Newmarket..was a
dlimping,- ground for American
jockey's and their followers.
Tlio national sport .has; a truly
royal patron in the prince of Wales.
His breeding establishment at San-'
tliinghani is probably the finest in
the world, and: his racing stock,
since he secured tlie wonderful mare
Perdita IL, has won high honors.
For years the royal colors never
showed at the front in important
events, but at last the: racing luck
turned. In 180(5, Persimmon won
the Derby and St. Leger, and other
victories brought the total of winnings up to $135,000. This year
his royal highness has been even
more successful, winning not so
many races, but a greate.r amount,
$1-15,000 so far, in seven events. All
of these, except two small races,
have been taken by Diamond
Jubilee, who won the triple crown—-
the   Two  Thousand   Guineas, the
Is now prepared to issue Drafts and
Letters of Credit on Skaffuay, U. S.,

Derby, and the St. Leger. He was
expected also to win the Jockey
Club stake of $50,000, but was
beaten by an American horse. Disguise I'..owned by .Tames 11. Keene,
and ridden by Cannon, an English
jockey. Sloan's disagreement with
the Keeues, before ho came over,
probably prevented his appearance
on the winner at that event.
John A. Drake, tho. American
sportsman, who has been very successful on the English turf, winning
iu a little more than five months
the immense amount of $945,000, is*
selling all his -horses, and will no
longer have any interest in a racing-
stable here. Mr. Drake, with his
trainer, Enoch Wishard,' has.been
called before the , stewards twice,
and questioned about the running
of his horses, and though both
owner and trainer were exonerated
by the investigation, the ordeal
was resented. Mr. Drake called
the criticism intolerable. . In his
remarks, published by one of the
sporting papers, he said that American jockeys and trainers needed
no defense at his hands. His horses
won fourteen successive races - at
the Doucaster meeting, and the
record speaks for itself. His trainer,
'Wishard, will probably be taken by
lord William Beresford.
There is something to be said for
the American jockeys. They have
certainly introduced methods which
seem to be worth copying. .-A number of onr jockeys have adopted
their • "monkey-on-the-stick" style,
and have won races riding in that
fashion. Their plan of getting
away with speed and riding to win
from the post has advantages that
can not be gainsaid. But there is
also opportunitity for well-founded
criticism. That Sloan was not more
severely disciplined at the Don-
caster meeting is, undoubtedly to
be attributed to the fact that lie
was riding for the .prince of Wales.
Who his next employer will be is
unknown at present. His pay for
the year- must - bo "large,
