 yy?iiss��  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  ��Y MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  MONDAY MORNING NOVEMBER 2.6 1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  BOSEWATER METHODS UNPOPULAR  Military  Journals Complain of the  Present Manner of  Suppressing Boer Outbreaks.  FORD'S   TELEGRAMS  TREAT  ON  VARIOUS  SUBJECTS  New York, Noveniber 23.���In a  special despatch to the New York  Tribune dated London, 6 a. m., Mv.  Isaac N. Ford says of military operations in South Africa: The resistance of the Boer guerillas con-  oontinues unabated, but does not  Jearl to any   decisive   results.    Ap-  " parently there is only one commando with a strength of one  thousand men and that is the one  which has been fighting Smith-  Dorien's brigade. The other bands  engaged in what the English leader  writers describe as brigandage do  not exceed 500 men, and the bulk  of the fighting for the Boer cause  is now done by bands of two hundred men without artillery. These  hostile forces recruit wherever they  go and maintain their strength unimpaired, notwithstanding the conV  starit capture of prisoners and  slaughter of men by twos aud  threes. These operations cannot  be prop.-rly dignified with the name  of war aud the ingenious and imaginative Dr. Leyds will find it hard  to make out a case of international intervention. Military journals here continue to complain of  rosewater methods   of suppressing  . these Boer outbreaks and reluct-  tantly admit that sentimental considerations will prevail until general Kitchener replaces lord Roberts.  Kruger's Reception.  If the barometer is falling in the  financial exchanges and cautionary  signals are flying in Lombaid street,  it'is not because the currents of  French opinion are markedly adverse to EJugland. Paris, even with  the exposition closed and Mr. Kruger the hero of the hour, is not a  storm center. The English press  ��� candidly admits that while the existence of considerable hostile feeling is unmistakable, there is no  real ground for national complaint.  One journal quietly remarks that  the demonstration of English feeling against Austria at the time of  the reception of Kossuth was at  least as violent as the outbreak of  French enthusiasm in favor of Mr.  Kruger and against the government  which has deposed him.  The Czar's Illness.  A real source of uncertainty and  alarm is the illness of the czar,  >rjth its 'bearing'on the Chinese  complications. The Lancet, reasoning''from "^e^te^gmph^e^lJOTti-^of^  %Jjg*^ffiellical=diagTIb^i"-r=5f"the czarT  asserts that the range of temperature and rate of pulse indicate a  mild attack of enteric fever and  that convalescence will be speedy  and sure. There are various sensational reports from the continent,  including a Paris rumor that the  attack of typhoid is acute and  has  faffected the patient's brain. The  latest telegrams tend to increase  rather than to diminish the apprehension respecting the czar's condition and there is apparently a deep  feeling of alarm . and uneasiness  among the great dignitaries at .St.  Petersburg, although the rumor  about a regency has not been fully  confirmed. When special prayers  arc offered throughout Russia by  the holy synod for the czar's restoration to health there may well be  uncertainty in all European capitals  respecting the maintenance of the  strongest bulwark of peace in the  far east; While the czar lives  there is reason to expect a prudent  and statesmanlike settlement of the  Chinese question.  The Knotty Chinese Question.  The latest report from Tien-  Tsin point to a serious disagreement  of the powers respecting the enforcement of the death penalty  against the guilty mandarins. The  powers are rumored to be divided  into two equal groups, the United  States, Russia, Prance and Japan  opposing rigorous action, and Germany, England, Austria and Italy  strongly favoring it.  The logic of the situation forecasts a promise of some kind, aud  an   agreement    upon   a   practical  scheme of peace proposals. The attitude of the United States is not  sharply condemned here, since there  is much latent sympathy with it.  English censors content themselves  with describing the-American policy as unintelligible, although  there are clearer and more explicit  accounts of it in New York and  Washington dispatches than are received of the diplomatic course of  any other government. They are  too ready to assume that the state  department is willing to leave the  empress a free hand in dealing with  the mandarins responsible for the  outrages, and to demand almost a  nominal indemnity, and since the  presidential election is over they  are now forced to attribute what  they consider vagaries of American  diplomacy to a deep suspicion of  Germany and anxiety to retire  from China, and to complete the  conquest of or pacification bf the  Philippines.  Lord Kitchener's Promotion  Discussing military affairs", especially the promotion of lord Kitchener, Mr. Ford says: The promotion  of lord Kitchener to the rank of  lieutenant-general was the chief result of yesterday's cabinet council.  Ha attains this dignity at the age  of 50 and is now-fully equipped to  take lord Roberts' place in South  Africa without exciting jealousy  over points of seniority and military etiquette. Lord Kitchener is  almost the only general in the  British army who is without a social clique in London. He detests  society, and is no carpet-knight.  He even has the reputation of being a woman-hater. He has, however, what is more valuable ��� than  social prestige, namely, the active  support of the prime minister.  Lord Salisbury has the greatest admiration for him, and is probably  responsible for his succession to thp  chief command in South Africa, as  he was for his appointment as chief  of staff last December.  last night. No arrangement has  been made for carrying the pouch  mails over the new fast route as  yet but it is understood that a report on the matter has been forwarded to the post-office department.  TONNAGE BONUS SUGGESTED  Military Matters.  The Times is publishing an important series of articles on the  weak points and general inefifici**  ency of the present military system. Mr. Broderick is making an  exhaustive study of the subject, but  war office and military experts are  not looking for radical or far reaching reforms. Although the canteen  scandal is a minor matter, it excites  even more discussion among military men than projected reforms on  a large scale.  The acquittal^f^botliTlieiTtenant  Breckett and master-gunner Acheson by a court martial has left the  mystery of the marked half crown  unsolved. If they are innocent nobody is guilty, unless  there be a second underling ready  for trial. The whole affair has. been  badly managed from the beginning,  and another inquiry, if ordered,  will leave the matter still in an unsatisfactory state.  RAILWAY AND STEAMBOAT  The New Schedule.  The new schedule went into  effect yesterday on the Spokane  Falls and Northern road and on the  K. It. ifc N. system between Kaslo  and Spokane. The Spokane train  left Nelson several hours earlier  than usual and returned about the  former hours. The effect of the  new arrangement was very apparent on the road. The only accommodation provided for passengers  on the evening train was a combination baggage car and smoker into  which all the travelers, including  several ladies, were crowded. The  train made long stops along the  road and altogether the service was  unsatisfactory. A number of persons coming through from the  coast via. Spokane, desired to take  the new route over the Nelson and  Bedlington to Kuskonook but wore  informed that their tickets only  called for transportation over the  S. F. & N. The steamer International arrived here about on  time  Interfered With the Work.  Last week's cold snap interfered  with   the   work   in   the   C. P. R.  yards, but operations are again in  full swing aud a large number of  men are  employed   principally in  laying the new tracks.   The yard is  in bad shape, a natural sequence to  the process of taking up old tracks  and laying new ones throughout,  but the usual routine of work is  carried   on    without   delays.   The  non-arrival   of   barges   while   the  storm lasted on the lake  gave the  yard crew a couple of days' holiday,  but when navigation r"eopened they  were compelled to make up for the  lost time by extra hustling.     Since  then the business  has been heavy  and there is every indication that  the usual Christmas rush is getting  fairly under way. Passenger engine  No. 25 which broke an  eccentric a  few days ago went into the round  house for repairs and was sent out  again yesterday.  Raised the Flags.  New York, November 25.���Details of the veteran corps of" artillery of the military society of. 1810  at sunrise this morning raised flags  over the blockhouse in Central'Park  and in Battery . Park. The event  was in commemoration of evacuation day, the day that the British  troops left New York.  BURRARD NOW VERY CLOSE  TO   PROVIDE VESSELS   FOR THE  COAST LUMBER MILLS.  American    Ships   Now   Discriminate  in Favor." of Puget Sound. and  California  Points.  GARDEN HAS AN EVEN CHANCE  WITH PARSON MAXWELL.  Both   Sides   Now   Claim   Majorities  Ranging From 200 Up���Betting  Men Now Hedging.  -���- Vancouver, November-"' 25.���  [Special to The Tribune.]���With  the polling day in Burrard still a  fornight off, political feeling has  been running very high here during  the past week. The bitterness  which has been engendered by the  sectional, social and religious animosities, developed by overmuch  campaign speaking, is increasing,  aud if the Liberals should proceed  with their determination to telegraph for sir Wilfrid Laurier and  Mr. Tarte to meet Clark Wallace  and sir Charles Tupper on a common  platform, the result will hardly be  for peace or harmony. Each side  claims victory in sight. Mayor  Garden "has counted noses and  thinks he see3 250 majority. Rev.  Mr. Maxwell, who clairae.d 500  majority^=montl*ragorirSs^latteTry"  pruned his estimate down to 200.  The betting which was two to one  in favor of Maxwell, is now at oven  money. ���. ���    -  - ���'  A Noted Jockey Arrives.  New York, November 25.���The  new French line,La Lorraine, which  arrived this morning, experienced a  hard time crossing. Tn addition to  the weather, which was exceedingly rough, several accidents oc-  eurral to the machinery, which  caused the vessel to slow down  while repairs were being made. Her  rail was smashed in and there was  a dent in the smoking room roof  caused by the giant waves which  broke over her forward deck.  There arrived on the La Lorraine  Cash Sloan, the jockey, who has  been riding in France. Sloan was  under contract to the duke d'Gram-  mont, baron Leonine having the second call on his services. He said  that he had ridden in "about 114  races, winning one out of every  four, which gave him the highest  percentage of any jockey in France.  He came in second in 20 races and  in many others secured third.  Arrival of the Campania.  New York, November 25.���The  Cunard liner, Campania, which arrived in quarantine Saturday evening, came up to her dock early this  morning. She had a rough passage, experiencing gales .and squalls  almost all the way across. None of  the officers cared to discuss the decision of the admiralty court  against the Campania for running  down the bark Embleton last July.  Vancouver,     November    25.���  [Special to The Tribune]���Great  dissatisfaction exists among local  lumbermen and millowiiers regarding   imperfect    shipping'facilities  and  the freight rates prevailing on  oceanic consignments. /The suggestion is being- seriously' considered  by the trade that the  provincial  government   be   memorialized   regarding the matter, and asked to  grant a tonnage bonus for< the construction    of    "British     Columbia  owned ships for the lumber carrying trade.   The statements of local  lumbermen are - to the_ effect that  San   Francisco   and   Puget Sound  shipowners have increased freight  rates.from  British Columbia ports  to such anextent fchat'Jlumber cannot now be shipped-, from -Vancouver to foreign ports at a'-profit; - As  deep water ships are difficult to obtain,   owing   to    morcf...profitable  freight   carrying    trade - in   other  parts of the world, -,the SanFrah-  cisco and Puget Sound 'shipowners  are able to materially injure the  lumber trade of British Columbia.  As soon as it became" apparent that  British Columbia lumbermen were  dependent on ' American   shipping,  the freight rates were-increased, so  that now a ship can,-be loaded at  Puget Sound or California ports for  00 cents per thousand less than in  British Columbia. .

Kruger in Paris.     -  Paris, November 25.���Mr. Kruger  passed Sunday with his family at  the Hotel Scribe, observing the  Sabbath in accordance with the  customs of his fatherland. His  apartments were closed to visitors  and he remained in the hotel for  perfect rest. The boulevards were  alive to a late hour last night with  merrymakers.     The Hotel Scribe  was   cordoned   and the   revellers  did   not   disturb   his   rest.     This  morning found him quite refreshed  from  fatigue.      After   au    early  breakfast   he   conferred   with Dr.  Leyds.   There being no church of  his own denomination in  Paris, he  held a private service in his apartments surrounded by his entourage.  Mr. Kruger read a portion of scripture and a member of his suite read  a sermon prepared in advance. The  Boer statesman expressed  a desire  to have an organ to assist the singing, but this could not be obtained.  . At an early hour free circulation  was resumed  in the streets about  the hotel, whose only   guardians,  two policemen, stood on either side  of   the   principal   entrance.     The  number   of   passers-by   were   not  greater than the ordinary Sunday  crowd.    Toward ���*. o'clock, however, |  pedestrians increased and along the  boulevard came one hundred shouting and singing boys.   Their advent  increased   the   enthusiasm,   which  was greatly worked   up and   the  streets began to  fill.     Cheers for  Kruger began and tho police immediately   established    a    cordon  about   the   hotel.     Several    companies of republican guards quickly  arrived.    In half an hour the scene  resembled that of yesterday.   Responding to cries and plaudits, Mr.  Kruger came for a moment upon  the   balcony   accompanied   by his  grand-daughters; again at 5 o'clock  the tumult was such that he reappeared   but   only   for   a moment.  During   the afternoon and   early  evening, there was no falling off in  the number of spectators.  QUEEN RECEIVES A DAILY TELEGRAM FROM THE SICK BED  A FATAL SALOON QUARREL  YOUNG     MINNESOTA     MILLIONAIRE THE VICTIM.  Minneapolis Newspaper Man Uses  Knife and Must Answer to  Charge of Murder.  a  :.- '-/Minneapolis, Minnesota", November 24.���Frank H. Hamilton, a Minneapolis newspaper man, is a prisoner at the central police station  with the charge of murder against  him as a result of stabbing to death  Leonard Day, a young millionaire society man of the oity, at the  West Hotel today. The tragedy  took place in the billiard room of  the West Hotel at 2 o'clock in the  morning, after a quarrel participated in by Hamilton, Day ,ind a  number of other prominent men.  All had been drinking, it was said,  to a considerable extent.  ; The men who had taken part iu  the affray at once left the place,but  ���were later found by tho police, who  took charge of the case. There  was a long cut on the top of the  man's head, his face and wrist were  Jbadlybruised.and^a^knife^thrust:  on the left side of the neck had severed the sub-clavicle artery.  Coroner. Nelson, at the request of  friends of the prisoner and of the  dead man, held au inquest this afternoon, when all the witnesses of  the tragedy testified. No one saw  the fatal blow struck, but all agreed  that Hamilton was the only man  with whom Day had been fighting.  NELSON MINES AND MINING  Trout Lake Properties.  Thomas Taylor, M.L.A., of Trout  Lake city, is in the city for a few  days. Referring to the conditions  existing in the Trout Lake district  Mr. Taylor says: " The mining industry has been more active than  for several years previous and.  while only two properties arc on a  shipping basis this winter there aro  various factors which point to an  active season next year. The Nettie L. mine, owned by the Great  Western Mines, Limited, will ship  1100 tons of ore during the sleighing season and it is estimated that  the shipment will net $100 per ton.  The last shipment from the property did not run as high us this,  but it is asserted that the ore was  not properly assorted at the mine.  Tho Silver Cup mine expects to  ship 500 tons of high grade ore  during the winter. This property  is owned by the Sunset Mining  Company, an offshoot of the Horne-  Payne syndicate. The greatest  drawback we have to contend with  in the development of our district  Berlin, November 25.���The following dispatch dated Si. Petersburg, November 25, 3.40 p. m., has  been received here: " It is persistently rumored in St. Petersburg  that the condition of emperor  Nicholas is critical. Well informed  people here declare that the disease  has made far greater progress than  the Czar's physicians have published. A fatal issue is now gravely  feared."  St. Petersburg, November 24.���  From three sources of information  directly connected with as many  ministers of state the correspondent of the Associated Press ascertained that imperial officials are  extremely pessimistic regarding the  condition of emperor Nicholas and  assert that the Livadia bulletins  conceal the gravity of his illness.  In spite of the notorious ease with  which an alarmist rumor can be  put in circulation in the Russian  capital, many good judges believe  that the chances of the Czar's recovery are' diminishing.  One report says that the emperor  in addition to typhoid fever, with  pectoral complications, has brain  fever, the result of a blow he received from a fanatical policeman  during his tour in Japan, and it is  even asserted in some quarters that  trepanning has become necessary.  Although the imperial ministers  have assumed wider powers of administration since his majesty's illness, the whole machinery of government is affected by his disability  and many departments are almost  at a.standstill.._ "Russians-laws and1  customs'impose an immense burden  is the lack of railroad facilities.  The fact that the C.P.R. surveying  party is now working west of  Trout Lake points to a resumption,  of work on the Lardo road in the  spring, and this impression is confirmed by reliable information from  other sources.  The Bur Nugget.  So far as is known the biggest  nugget ever taken from Forty-nine  creek was that weighing nine  ounces washed out in McVicar's  last cleanup. The nugget was  found in a hole on bed rock and  was about the size and shape of an  egg with a smoothly polished surface. Three men, W. Murphy,:Tora  Rogers and Harry Wright, were  working in one pool, and Rogers  ,tiu*ned=^the=,big==ttugge.t^o.vei^with=  his pick. He was greatly excited  over the big find. Grabbing the  nugget Rogers raised a shout and  without waiting to show his partners what he had found rushed  around a bend in the creek where  the balance of the outfit was working. Everyone crowded around to  admire the lump of gold aud it was  some minutes before work was resumed. In this cleanup it is stated  that over 100 ounces of coarse gold  was taken off bed rock exclusive of  what went into the sluice boxes.  Walter A. Segsworth, formerly  assayer at tlie Venus mine, returned last night from Victoria  where he has been laboring in the  provincial assaycr's office for the  past two months. In the fall examination for proficiency in assaying Mr. Segsworth passed second,  thereby securing the certificate now  required to practice in the province.  A. Powys contradicts the report  of the bonding of the Republic  claim.  A Better Understanding.  Washington, November 25.���  Such information as has come to  the state department in tho last  few days is said to indicate a favorable condition of affairs respecting  the chances for a more satisfactory  understanding among tho ministers  of the powers than during the early  part of last week, when a dead-lock  seemed imminent. Just what is  the nature of the information is  not known but possibly it came as  a result of secretary Ha5r's last note  *-, -t  THE CZAB'S CONDITION IS CBITICAL  It Is Asserted That the Bulletins Conceal the Gravity  of His Illness.  of detail work, principally   in   the  matter of signature upon the   czar;  for example, numerous special pensions, whose payment on each   occasion requires the emperor's nam e.  St. Petersburg, Noveniber 25.-���  12 midnight.���The following  bulle- -  tin was issued this morning at   Li-,  vidia: "The czar passed a quiet day  yesterday.   At 3 o'clock yesterday  afternoon his temperature rose   to  103.5, the   pulse   being   88.    At   9  o'clock in the evening the tempera-, .  ture was   102.2 and the pulse 80.

London,   November   26.���While  the latest   bulletin   regarding the-  Czar's condition is much less favorable than its  predecessor, there is  nothing as yet to confirm alarming  rumors.    Queen Victoria  daily receives  a  telegram from  the Czar}  and it is understood that no excep-  tional  anxiety   is   displayed.    According to' the Moscow correspond-  -  ent of the' Daily Press, an examiha- *  tion of the water  taken ~from the  well used'for drinking"[purposes at' -  Livadia   proved   the  presence . of.-,  typhoid germs.

Manila, November 25.���Funeral  of baron Duraaraisk, the Frenchman who was killed by the insurgents while within their lines last  year, where he had gone to intercede with Aguinaldo for the release  of the Spanish prisoners, took place  today in the church of San Augus-  tin, in Manila. It a'as attended by  a distinguished concourse, including  generals, commissioners, consuls,  and hundreds of Americans who  were on each side of the catafalque  in front of the altar. Archbishop  Clmpelle blessed the remains.  An Electrical Test.  Sciinectady, New York, November 25.���A test of great importance  to the electrical world is to be made  at Niagara Falls tomorrow, when a  party of   leading general   electric  officials and experts will experiment  upon a new high  potential switch.  Preliminary tests have  been  made  with the 1.0,000 volt current at  the  Mechaniesville   station,  but   these  were  not   considered  satisfactory,  as they left somewhat in doubt the  limit of the machinery, hence the  experiments to be made at Niagara  Falls, where a power of 20,000 volts  can be had.  Request Denied.  London, Noveniber 25.���"We understand." says' the Daily Express  this morning, "lordRoberts recently  requested the government to send  20,000 regulars to South Africa to  relieve the same!number still in the  field, but that his request was de��  clined on the score of expense,"  'fi-l  to the powers setting out afresh,'  the object of the United States',*"  government as to China.

There  was a fair attendance, but no great  amount of enthusiasm. The speakers - were A. L. Sifton of Calgary,  S: S. Taylor of Nelson, and G. O.  Buchanan of Kaslo. From reports  received from different places, there  is no such earnestness in this contest as was displayed in the provincial contest last summer.  Thr Labor party of Vancouver  has decided to nominate Robert  Maepherson as its candidate for the  vacancy in Vancouver caused by  ���the resignation of mayor Garden.  While Maepherson says hejwill be a  straight Labor man, it is evident  from his utterances that ho has little sympathy for the present administration, and in event of election may safely be classed as an  oppositionist. In the last general  elections Mr. Maepherson offered  as a Martin candidate, but was defeated. In a by election his chances  should be very good as a Labor-  Liberal candidate.  TnE new arrangement over   the  Great Northern railway   system in  this section of the province went into effect yesterday.   The   steamer  International' leaves   Nelson   at   7  o'clock in the morning and connects  at Pilot Bay with the Alberta,   the  Alberta connecting   at Kuskonook  with a train that   runs   direct   to  Spokane.    Returning, the International leaves Kaslo at 2:20   p.   m.,  connects at Pilot Bay with the Alberta returning   from   Kuskonook,  and arrives at Nelson at 0:20 p. m.  The Spokane mail now  comes over  the new route, and it  is  sent  on 1  through to Sandon the same day it  leaves Spokane. There is now no  Sunday train out of Nelson on the  Nelson & Port Sheppard.  Colonel Topping, of Trail, is one  of the Liberals who believe in home  smelting.   That he holds views upon this question differing from the  majority of the Liberals is due   no  doubt   to   the   circumstance   that  colonel Topping   understands   the  question, and the importance of its  bearing upon the industrial   development of Southern British Columbia.    From colonel Topping's letter,  which appears in another   column,  it is evident that he does not   stop  at lead ores.    He  points out   that  the ores of the Trail   Creek   camp  can be smelted as   economically  in  British Columbia as at   Northport,  Washington; but simply because it  suits the   purpose   of   the   British  company owning.the Le Roi   mine,  to treat its ore in the United States,  the province of British Columbia is  deprived of what should rightly be  its monthly   pay   roll   of. $10,000.  That colonel Topping's-views upon  this question are shared   by many  other Liberals in British   Columbia  is no doubt true; but the   fact   remains that there is. now less hope  for a satisfactory solution* of   this  question   at   Ottawa  than    there  would be at- Victoria.   While the  tariff in a measure has ceased to be  an issue in Canadian [politics, there  is   nevertheless   a   deeply    rooted  prejudice in the minds  of Liberals  of the old school against any further protection.   The Tribune agrees  ���heartily with colonel Topping,   but  it cannot close its eyes to   the fact  that the doughty colonel will have  much difficulty in  overcoming   the  prejudices of the members of the  party with which he has identified  himself.   The  home smelting and  refining of Kootenay   ores   would  benefit, not only the mining centers  of the province, but  every   farmer  from Manitoba to the coast; but before this phase of   the   matter   re-  ~ceives due~consideration"th"e~"Liber="  als must strive to forget the   theoretical trade teachings which  they  have been .nursing for the  past   20  years.

There being only ten more days,  they should be devoted towards  convincing the opposition that the  Liberal-Conservative party intends  to return John McKane by an overwhelming majority on Wednesday-  week.          TOPPING   ON   LIBERALS.      .  Editor ov The Tribune: . I - aim-,  a fairly strong Liberal, and admire  the liberal action of your paper in  allowing either party, to express-  their political faith through your  columns. I also like your advocacy  of an export duty omores. You  might think that the Liberal party-  do not believe in adding to the duty  on either incoming or outgoing articles, but when it is shown to be  necessary to a section to protect  them, the Liberals have and will  continue to do so. .  One reason.why I am a. Liberal  is, because of the fact that they  are not "iron clad," and that their  policy., is to do the best they can for  any and all parts of Canada. I  have believed iir an export duty  for years, and would have advocated  it earnestly'and all the time but for  one fact, which was, that it would  have beena direct tax on the Slocan and other lead ores. But now,  when-people of our section of the  province are unanimous in asking  for an imposition of duties on the ���  manufactured products of lead,  when every indication points to the  fact that we will get the legislation  that we- desire, allowing us a market for our-lead, while competition  will keep down the cost of smelting,  therefore, I believe the time has.  come to advocate the imposition of  an-export duty "on ore of at least  .$2:00 per ton.  As all are aware, though it has  not' receivd the attention that it  deseryes, more than half .'of the ore-  mined at Rossland is smelted within the boundaries of the state, of  Washington, taking away- from the  legitimate  A good old Tory meeting, which  must have recalled to those present similar  ones in  other parts  of  the Dominion, was held at the McKane committee  rooms on Saturday evening.   Tho crowd gave  unmistakable evidence that the   recent apparent Conservative apathy  is only on the surface and that it  needs very little  to bring   about  great enthusiasm  over  John   McKane's  election.    Telegrams    wero  read from sir Charles Tupper and  Mr. John McKane announcing that  they would be in Nelson on Saturday   next ;   communications   were  also   read  from   the   Hon.   T.   M.  Daly and others, all showing the  fresh interest aroused in the coming   contest.       Stirring,, speeches  were delivered by John Toye, W.  A.   Macdonald,  D.   Carley,   J.   A.  Irving, W.  E. McCandlish, G. Mc-  Nabb,   G.   L. Lennox    and   Jacob  Dover, while Messrs. Lennox and  Murray further enlivened/the meeting . with   cheerful   songs,   which  dispersed at a late hour.  A public meeting will be held in  the opera house on Saturday next  at which sir Charles Tupper and  Mr. McKane wiil address the electors.      Further   particulars   later.  province a legitimate pay-roll-of  about $40,000 per month. Tb.o -moment this ore crosses the line, that  moment it ceases to benefit Canada  or Canadians.  Why should we favor Washington state that will not allow us to  locate or buy a mineral claim or  town lot? It would bean excuse  if ore could be reduced more cheaply  there, but I know that it can not.  Since the completion of the Crow's  Nest Pass railway, coke���and good  coke too���can be laid down at Nelson or Trail at least $1.00 per ton  more cheaply than at Northport.  Limestone, the only other foreign  flux required, is also found in quantities in this section of the province, and I venture to assert that in  no part of the world can ore be reduced more economically than in  southern British Columbia.  I sincerely believe that for the  more complete protection of Canadian labor and Canadian business  men, that wo should do all in our  power to impress these facts upon  I the government.

Douglas Staden, the American  newspaperman, has finished a  graphic account of the welcome accorded the imperial volunteers by  the City of London upon their return from South Africa. Though  reports differ as to the utility of  the imperial volunteers as a field  force they were received as the  flower of the army in London and  the deduction is made from tlie  welcome that henceforth the loug  snubbed volunteers will be regarded as an integral part of the  army. In his account of the reception Stader says:  Monday's procession mas* be regarded as the marking of the com-  ing-of-age of the volunteers, and the  spectacle was worty of the event.  Never probably in the history of  the world has there - been such a  crowd. The Jubilee crowd in the  city was nothing to it. In Fleet  street it was nearly twenty- deep on  each side of the thin red line sta -  tioned there, which was to keep .a  lane for the procession, but looked  more like the ham in a sandwich.  There was no lane left at all until  tlio mounted police and the staff  and their escort of lluss.ars, riding  four abreast, trampled one out. <-.  ������F-rom the duke of Wellington's  house at Hyde Park corner to the  Ciuildhall, London lost its_ shape in  banners, like a man-of-war on the  Queen's  birthday.-     Tlie  Baroness  Uurdett-'Coutt's  house, which  she,  has so generously gave up to tho  C. I. V.  and their relations,  presented -the most tasteful  appearance, with its handsome bunches of.  Union Jacks.  The three best-decor-  .sited  buildings in Pall Mall   were  the war  office, where the bunting  w.as managed better than anywhere  else;   the   Carlton Club, with   its  rich   draperies of royal blue and  gold,   the    United   Service   Club,  where lord Roberts spends so much  of his time when in London, whicli  was decorated rather similarly to  the Carlton, but. with additions of  crimson cloth and bunting.    It was  in the Strand that festoons of. flags  and flowers hung across the street  became general.   Many buildings in  the Strand were very handsomely  and   effectively  draped,  but none  were attracting so much attention  as two in Fleet street.   Right opposite to where I sat, a. hundred  yards' on" the city side of the Griffin  which marks" the site   of   Temple  Baiythe west gate of London, there  was   a   tall' Venetian   palace, dec-'  orated with great taste and elaboration.   These broad - belts of crimson cloth - wreathed   with flowers  and decorated with bunched Union  Jacks"^ncl^tlre~arm75^i'ial:Tshields_of~  the great powers, ran  right round  tlW building.    Over its    door was  a huge shield painted like. Britannia's,   with   the- Union-Jack,   and  with the portrait of lord Roberts  embossed in its center, while the  three   stories     of    its   bay   were  decorated with the   Royal Standard,    the   City    arms,   and   the  Royal   .arras      respectively,     embedded inJittle   forests   of   Union  Jacks.   The.City arms, whose white  ground   with  a   red   St.   George's  cross and the  bloody   dagger   has  been adopted as the C.   I.   V.   flag,  were more   handsomely presented  here than in any other decorations.  I saw.    It turned out to be the office of Joseph Lawrence,   the   new  sheriff, who was all but elected   M.  P. for Cardiff a week or   two  .ago,  and is. chairman   of   the   Linotype  Company.   The other building   to  which all   eyes   were   directed   in  .Meet.street was the khaki colored  house given up to the  survivors of  the charge of the   Light   Brigade,  which bore the inscription,    'Welcome companions   of   victory! the  survivors   of   the   Light    Brigade  ��� greet their young comrades.'     Volleys of cheers greeted the   veterans  from the passing crowd. One of the  most touching points in the whole  of the decorations was tlie   inscription   wreathed   in   flowers    hung  across the street just before the entrance to the Guildhall, 'God   bless  Bobs.'  " The procession was a trifle late.  It reached the gates of the city  about halfrpast three. There was  ho lane for it.. The little posse of  mounted   police,   and   the Hussar  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N.W. T.  escort of the staff had  to act  the  snow-plough   all . the   way   from  Temple Bar eastwards; thei'e never  had been such a crowd in the world.  All the. millions of London, reinforced by all the people that trains  could  bring in from  the country,  were out in the streets to welcome  London's regiment back from  the  war.     And now with  the  Grenadiers' band playing    ' The British  Grenadiers,'    which    melted   into  ' God Save   the   Queen'   as they  passed the threshold of the city,  the C.I.V.,s.were upon. us.   Every  man's head was   bare, x and,; more  handkerchiefs   wero   waving than  ever   were    seen ' together     before.        Splendid    felllows    they  were, these   C. I. V.'s;   so   quiet,  such   mighty, men   physically,  so  burned with Africa's  sun.    Very  wisely the guns, the   gallant   12-  poundersi painted khaki to render  them invisible to the enemy's gunners, were put first, guarding   the  Boer   standard captured . by   the  C.I.V. at Jacobsdaal, the first victory in the great turning movement  of   Lord Roberts, which was the  turning   point in the whole war.  As the stalwart, bronzed men, - so  modest over their honors, but so  resolute looking,- sat back on their  merry Irish gun-horses  the crowd  cheered until it  was hoarse.   The  mounted   infantry,    poor   fellows,  when they came, did not���have half  a   chance, .marching    dismounted,  with nothing to distinguish them  from the infantry pure and simple  but the lack of bayonets.   The rain  had ceased, the autumn sun was  shining out fitfully, just enough to  give fresh glitter to the long line of  bayonets   which   stretched    down  Fleet street from .end to end.

STRACHAN BROTHERS, Plumbers  KOOTENAYS WEED A JUDGE  Court Business Warrants It.  Each succeeding sitting of the  supreme court at Nelson and Boss-  land emphasizes the necessity of  having .a judge of the supreme  court resident in the Kootenays.  During the recent sittings here and  at the session now in progress in  Rossland more legal business has  been disinatched or is pending than  has come up at Vancouver or Victoria in any ordinary year, this on  the authority of an official who is  familiar with the statistics. Such  a condition of affairs would seem to  justify a supreme court judge being located in the Kootenays when  four are provided to hear cases at  the coast.  The supreme court sitting at  Rossland is still in session, Mr.  justice Walkem presiding. Court  has been in session daily for two  .weeks and is now in the midst of  a jury trial which will be concluded  on Tuesday. There then remain  twelve cases on the docket, a couple  of which are likely to take three or  four days each, so that the sitting  is likely to last well into December.  During Last week Mr. justice  Walkem received a wire from the  attorney-general's department requesting him to return for a full,  court sitting. This would have  left the Rossland court only haljf  J. Lonsdale Doupe of tlie C. P. R.  land department was in the city yesterday.  . Thomas Taylor, M. L.
