 ��*>*?i*f-dr  y-  r J.      '-'"I  DAILY EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR .  -,. ���  --'el  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:   WEDNESDAY MOENING DECEMBER 5  1900  PEICE FIVE CENTS  MINING INDUSTBIES NEAB NELSON  Sinking on the Rosebud Claim Has Been Commenced  by the  Lessees.  THE OUTLOOK FOR 1901 AND OTHER INTERESTING NEWS  R. C. Campbell-Johnston, acting  for himself and the other owners of  the Bondholder group on the north  fork of Springer creek, has made a  lease with P. Hancock, I.  Beau pore  and O. -Horrie of Slocan City for  work on the property.   The lessees  have started sinking on the Rosebud claim  where a vein  parallels  the Arlington vein and it is figured  this  vein will  intersect the main  Bondholder ledge, which is  .an  extension of the Enterprise ledge, at  a distance of 200 feet.    The lease to  Slocan City parties for work on the  Graphic claim has been extended  also, and operations will, therefore,  be carried on at two points on  the  property.     The   Bondholder   is   a  promising  property  and its shipments to the smeiter have turned  out exceedingly well, running  150  ounces in silver and $8.50 in gold.  Dan McCuaig and partners are now  working on the Murillo group  below the Bondholder and expect to  ship ore during the winter.  The Outlook For 1901.  Local men who are credited with  having a finger on the pulse of the  mining industry do not hesitate to  predict the best season in years for  the year 1901. While the promoters who operate in England report  that the stringency in the money  market attributed to the Transvaal  xyjEiv has not passed, this difficulty  is not felt as keenly as was the case  at this time last year, and it is  noticeable that many propositions  are being prepared for launching  on the London market. Canadian  capital is again becoming an active  element aud it is thought that the  small investor who was as a rule  the victim of the wild cat schemes  growing out of the Rossland boom,  will be sufficiently encouraged by  the entry of a dozen or more properties into the shipping and dividend-paying stage to become interested again in mining ventures.  American capital within the last  year has taken hold . in British  Columbia and the number of companies operating with funds from  across the line is^likely to be largely  increased. Right here in Nelson a  large amount of capital has been  and is being invested in mineral  properties aud this is regarded as  one of the most promising signs of  the times.  1  J_  Litigation over Slocan Claims.  A writ was issued yesterday by  -Galliher &-Wilson-acting-on-behalf-  of Hugh Cameron, Peter Lindquist  and James Campbell of Slocan City  against .Tohn Lawson of San Francisco, the action thus instituted involving valuable mineral land on  Springer creek. The plaintiffs seek  to secure a declaration that the  Bald Mountain fraction is a valid  claim as against the B fraction,  which overlaps the same ground,  and that plaintiffs are entitled to  the land and mineral contained in  it. They further ask for an injunction restraining the defendant from  trespassing on the ground and for  damages." ���  Other Slocan Jottings. 'Z  John C. Holden of Slocan City is  working a crew of five miners on a  promising property on Republic  hill near the Tamarac and Ottawa.  It is a gold proposition and the  claim is made that the ore will average $60; Portland, Oregon, parties  are behind the venture and satisfactory arrangements have been  made to continue work all winter.  The showing on the Ottawa group  continues to improve as the development advances. A quantity of  fine ore is in sight and the owners  expect to ship this winter.  Mining Records.  Yesterday's mining records were :  Transfers: The Faith Hope and  Charity claims, 2i miles up Barrett  creek, by Frank Glencross of Rossland to Oscar P. Anderson of Ymir.  Locations: The Iron Duke on  Kootenay river, near Slocan junction.  Certificates of   work:   To  J.  P.  Swedenburg on the Red Point; to  R. W. Bacom on the Francis B  fractional; to C. J. Andei'son ou the  Faith; to James Gill on the Heather  Dow fractional.  Diamond Drilling.  Phoenix Pioneer.  Since last August the Diamond  Drill Contracting Company of Spokane, has been at work in Phoenix  under contract with' the Miner-  Graves Syndicate, doing prospect-  work on the properties of that syndicate. The original contract was  for a minimum of 2000 feet, but altogether * 2700 feet of holes were  bored. Tuesday the work was completed and the outfit shipped to the  Highland mine at Ainsworth, on  Kootenay lake, where the new company has secured another boring  contract. Tho company is also do.-  1000 feet of work on the White  Bear claim in Rossland camp.  TORONTO   STOCK   EXCHANGE.  TUESDAY**"   QUOTATION'S.  stock.                                        Asked.

London, December 4.��� United  States ambassador Choate had a  long conversation today with the  secretary of state for foreign affairs,  the marquis of Lansdowne, in which  the proposed alternatives and  amendments in secretary Hay's recent note and the notes of the other  powers were fully discussed. Noth-  ing-definite-was-arrived���at.���Lord-  Lansdowne showed the most friendly spirit and no difference of any  importance came up. Mr. Choate  is notifying secretary Hay of his  lordship's views. A further consultation will follow soon  Was Not an Act  of War.  Berlin, December 4.���During the  debate in the reichstag today on  the supplementary credit for  China, baron von Richthofen, secretary of foreign affairs, informed  Herr Bebel, the socialist, that the  China expedition was not regarded  exactly.as an act of war, but as  armed intervention against an anarchic state of affairs, not preventing a continuance of a certain  amount of intercourse between  Germany and the government of  China. The minister of war, general von Crossler, declared that  while epidemics were rife among  the troops in China; the deaths were  only one-third per cent of the entire expeditionary corps.  Rhodes to be Captain.  New York, December 4.���It was  announced here today that W. B.  Duncan, junior, who will manage  the yacht now being built to defend the American cup has selected  Uriah Rhodes for captain of the  new boat. Captain Rhodes com*  manded the old Defender in her  trial races with Columbia in 1899,  A French Murder.  Paris, December 4.���The severed  head, arms and legs of a young  man have been discovered in some  waste ground near the Rues Des  Platriers at Belleville, and* another  package containing a disemboweled  and otherwise mutilated trunk was  found in a gateway on the Rue Du  Faubourg St. Denis, a mile and a  half distant. The two discoveries  apparently refer to the same murder. The first" package was deposited late last night by six men, who  were seen from a dwelling house opposite. The crime has caused a  great sensation.  Thinks Four Months Will End War.  London, December 4.���Mr. James  G. Stowe, the United States consul  general   at   Capetown,   landed   in  Southampton today.   He will sail  for the United   States   December  15th on the steamer St. Louis.   In  an interview today he said: "I give  the   war   in   South   Africa   four  months to come to an end. - In my  opinion-, it is bound to be snuffed  out during that period.   I do not  believe lord Kitchener will do much  more than any other general.   The  present   plan   of the British campaign is bound to  bring about the  result.    Moreover there are  10,000  Boer prisoners in Ceylon, St. Helena  and  Capetown   all   of   whom  are  anxious to have an end of hostilities."          ���   "  Cost Almost a Million.  Washington, December 4.���Commissioner Peck's report of the expenditures of the Paris commission  for the year ending November 15th,  1900, was sent to the senate today.

MERCIER CREATED A SCENE  IN   THE   FRENCH   CHAMBER   OF  DEPUTIES    YESTERDAY.  Thinks France Is England's Equal and  Wants to Hold the  Screw  Over Her Head.  Paris, December 4.���General  Mercier caused a sensation m the  senate today during the debate on  the naval bill by pointing out the  ease with whicli England could be  invaded. He demanded that they  introduce into the plans for mobilization of the army the naval  methods for the rapid embarkation  and debarkation of an expeditionary corps. The president declared  that such-propositions-were-out-of-  order and the senate adjourned.  What He Said.  In the course of an extraordinary  speech general Mercier said: "In  view of the possibility of a war  with Great Britain the use of the  army is not sufficiently taken into  account. The Transvaal has shown  that the British army, although  brave, was not equal to the tfisk  which England expected it to perform. The British navy is powerful, but it has many coasts to defend. Prance, therefore, is numerically England's equal at certain  points and is even their superior in  the instruments of destruction. A  landing in England is therefore uot  beyond reason. I venture to think  that the work I prepare while commanding an army corps could serve  as a basis for such a project which  would not be expensive."  At this point protests were made  and M. Falliers asked general Mercier not to enter into the details of  the scheme. General'.. Mercier replied that the screw could be held  over the head of England, and he  proposed a revisiou. The senate  should invite the government to  complete immediately preparations  for the mobilization of the army  and navy by praparing everything  necessary to embark and disembark  as rapidly as possible an expeditionary corps. Protests were raised  from various branches, and M. De  Lansen, minister of marine, followed  the president's ruling that the motion was out of order in the present  debate by declaring, amid cheers,  that the government could not possibly accept it.  The Independent Labor party  publicly closed the campaign with  a successful mass meeting at the  opera house last night. The building was well filled,and considerable  enthusiasm was manifested ��� during  . the evening. A couple of rows of  seats were reserved. for ladies and  the fair sex took advantage of this  courtesy in some numbers; * An innovation was introduced in the  shape of campaign' songs sung by  Charles Clayton, Robert Thompson  and A. Steele. The selections were  well rendered by ' the soloists, but  the audience did not seem to get  into the spirit of the thing* and the-  choruses fell rather short.  Walter Kee, secretary of the campaign, occupied the \ chair. About'  him were candidate Foley, S. S.  Taylor, Q.C., James Wilks, "Robert  Robertson, president'of the carpenters' union, G. -Thorpe,**- vice-president of the same organization, J.  Matthews, president" of "the laborers' union, Charles fClayton, president of the Trades,and Labor Council, and W. Thompson of Whitewater. ��� ;���' -.     ���  The spell binders of the evening  were candidate-"-Foley and.James  Wilks for the Labor party and S.  S. Taylor,. Q.e.',l'-for the Liberal  party.? An invitation was extended  to any gentleman * present who  might desire to champion the Conservative cause, but no one volunteered to undertake* the task.  Candidate Foley received .an excellent reception,, was liberally applauded at intervals-and. at, the  conclusion' of-his" ^ddress^was*. ac- *  corded a hearty evidence,- bf the  audience's good will. His speech  was ��a clever effort. The Labor  ���-candidate confined his remarks  very largely to issues' which the  Labor party has brought prominently to the front during the campaign, namely the Mongolian and  alien labor questions and the matter  of anti-monopoly legislation. On  these Mr. Foley dwelt at great  length, and it is within the bounds  of fact to state that he made a  deep impression. The " yellow  danger" was painted in its true  colors by the speaker, who produced facts and statistics to support his statements and predictions. He forsaw a period not so  remote as most people seemed to  believe when the Mongolian question  in British Columbia would plunge  the country into a race war surpassing in vindictiveness the race  war now in progress in the southern states of the Union. His solution of the problem was to send  representatives from tho province  to Ottawa who would place the  matter in its proper light before  the house of commons and fight for  legislative barriers to further inroads. .Such a fight he pledged  himself to wage if elected. Mr.  Foley's reference to the Conservative candidate was brief but sarcastic. It was not worth while, ho  said, to discuss McKane. Barnum,  the great showman, would find candidate McKane a valuable acquisition to the sideshow aggregation,  and the Conservative party bad received enough hard knocks without  his dwelling on the subject further.  S. S. Taylor followed in a neat  speech of half an hour's duration.  It was his first appearance in the  local campaign and his contribution to the spellbinding was well  worth listening to. Mr. Taylor is a  fluent and easy speaker, who discards oratory in favor.: of a plain  presentment of facts and arguments  delivered in a manner, which convinces his audience of the reliability  oi his facts and the logic of his arguments. In opening Mr. Taylor  touched a warm spot in the hearts  of Mr. Foley's friends by describing- the labor candidate as a "noble  fellow and a man who must on his  merits command the respect and  admiration of all. The fact remained, however, that the labor  element had succeeded in enlisting  the support of the great Liberal  party and the return of a labor  candidate in opposition to a straight  Liberal nominee   would   set back  their cause until such time as the  labor element had elected a majority of the members of the house, a  matter of a century more or less.  This was the pith of Mr. Taylor's  address. To substantiate his statement as to the friendly attitude  taken by the Liberal party toward  the labor element he reviewed the  special labor legislation enacted  during tho Liberal administration  of the past four years, and recounted "the difficulties experienced by  the Liberal government in securing  the passage of this legislation  through the Conservative senate.  James Wilks closed the meeting  with a neat address calculated' to  strengthen the cause of the Labor  party. Mr. Wilks was in good form  and spoke well.'  A Fat Snap.  Washington, December 4.���In  the senate today Mr. Stewart introduced a bill creating a supreme  court of the Philippine islands with  five judges who are to be appointed  for life and each of whom is to draw  a salary of $20,000 per annum. The  bill provides for appeal on writs of  error to the United States supreme  court in all cases involving "more  than $20,000 and in those in whicli  the' constitution of the United  States is involved. .Speaking of his  motive for placing the salary at so  high a figure. Mr. Stewart said he  had.done so in order to secure men  of character and professional standing for the offices of judge.  Will Be Like the Others.  Glasgow, December 4.���Discussing ^the American cup challenger  with a noted dwner Mr. M. L. Watson,' the designer" bf Shamrock II.,  said today: "There is not a bit of  truth in the report's that" the'new  boat will embody striking novelties.  A'clip challenger is scarcely the  kind of a boat a designer would  choose for experiments. The Shamrock If. will be like some of the  other big boats in existence. Whatever novelties there are will be .in  "the construction details."

The Southern Pacific Railroad,   Near  Suisun, California, the Scene of  a Terrible Wreck.  Sacramento, California, December 4.���A work train carrying its  crew of between 25 and 30 track-  repairers backed into a freight  train a few miles east of Suisun, on  the Southern Pacific, today and in  the wreck which followed eight,  men were killed and twenty more  injured, many of them seriously. It  appears that the freight train had  theright of-track-and-was-running-  f ull speed in order to meet and pass  another freight at Suisun. The  work train should have been on a  siding and was making for it at a  good rate of speed, when it collided  with the freight. At the time  there was a heavy fog prevailing  and it was possible to discern objects for only a short distance, so  the shock of the colliding trains was  terrific. All tho casualties are reported to be among the men of the  work train, as the engineers and  firemen jumped to save themselves.  Over 200 feet of track was torn up  and the cars were smashed and  piled upon each other in every conceivable shape.  The Maybrick Case.  Renewed efforts in the interest  of Mrs. Florence Maybrick will be  made by ambassador Choate, in  connection with instructions by  secretary Hay, says a Herald dispatch from Washington! Additional evidence, showing that Mrs.  Maybrick was addicted to the use  of the drug from which he died has  been gathered and , forwarded to  ambassador Choate for presentation  to the Right Hon. C. T. Ritchie,  who has succeeded sir M. White  Ridley as secretary of tho home  department in the recent reorganization of tho British cabinet.  The officials of the United States  embassy say they have not received  any instructions in connection with  taking further steps for the release  from Woking prison of Mrs. Florence Maybrick, who is undergoing  imprisonment for life after being  convicted in 1SS9 of poisoning her  husband with arsenic.  Grand Forks, December -1.���-Hon.  Richard McBride, minister of mines,  reached here last night on a tour of  the Boundary district.   The members of the Grand Forks board of  trade made various representations  to him in regard to public matters.  The   provincial    government  was  asked to begin the proposed bridge  across   the   north fork of   Kettle'  river at Eagle City without delay,  extend the north fork wagon road  to Franklin road, provide additional  school accommodation   for Grand  Forks, revise mining Laws, extend  operations of Rivers and Streams  Act to the North Fork of Kettle  riyer, permitting that stream to be  improved for lumbering  purposes,  to build a new wagon road connecting   Grand   Forks    with   Summit  Camp, and lastly, make a mineral  exhibit at the Pan-American  exhibition at Buffalo.  , Hon. Mr. McBride in reply said he  would submit- the representations  to his colleagues for consideration.  He was banqueted in the evening  by the board of trade.  5__ai  '���**-����� L  *- '���*_" p  -���"���?__-  .. -$^i \  To Double Its Capacity.  Grand Forks, B.

Mayor Goodeve of  Rossland hold the floor for one and  a half hours in the most eloquent  and telling speeches of the campaign. It was a grand effort. Galliher's friends are dumfounded.  The exposure of Galliher's duplicity iu connection with signing the  eight-hour law petition as given by  Goodeve last night had a most telling effect. McKane will get a majority in Revelstoke.  Ralph Smith spoke here on Saturday night and made a straight  Grit 'speech,, hardly mentioning  Foley at all.

In a letter just published  by a  prominent woman of Lexington, the  interesting fact i3 made* public for0  the first time that General _Roberfc_  E. Lee, the great Confederate com-.  mander,   was   buried   in   a   coffin  caught in the flotsam and jetsam of  the great flood of 1870.  The terrible freshet of October, .  1870, occurred a few days before  general Lee's death. Lexington,  where he died, was utterly cut off  from the world, the canal being  destroyed and the little college  town not then being connected by  railroad. "Three days before general Leo's death," writes this  woman, "four daring men undertook to search tho flooded district  for a coffin. The party came almost  upon an island which was covered  with wreckage. One of the'men  swam across the rushing torrent  and found a coffin. He succeeded  in putting it in a canoe, but it took  almost superhuman efforts to bring  it safely to town."  A Good Pair of Boots.  Alonzo. P. Kin nie, a farmer, of  South Gibson, is.wearing daily a  pair of boots that were made for  him forty years ago. He has worn  them regularly ever since, and there  is no sign of them giving out for  another two score years. The old  pair of cowhides testifies continually to the honest workmanship of  other davs. Mr. Kinnie got the  boots when, he was a young man,  and they ' have grown old together.

The first signature was attached to the petition between  11  and 12 o'clock'on Monday forenoon'  and it was laid before the council'  at 4:15 o'clock in the afternoon. Instead   of being  in circulation for  three days, it was not in circulation  three hours altogether.    There are-  names attached to it who are not  political supporters of mayor Houston, but these men are heartily in  favor of a radical -change * at the  fire hall, as aro a large majority of  the representative business men of  the city.   It is   needless   for   the  Miner to slur at or question  the  } motives of the men who signed the  petition,  that does  not alter the  situation.    Mayor-Houston may be  an adventurer andeverything the  Miner-says he'is,-but "that* does not  alter   the' situation   either.     The  business men of Nelson have a right  to petition the council; they did so,  asking that the fire department be  reorganized.   The   council  treated  the petition as if the petitioners  had no   rights   which   they were  bound   to    respect, and   now the  Miner says the council were perfectly right in slapping the business   men   in   the   facea   The suspended chief of the fire department  must stand or fall on the charges  preferred .against him as an official*  He has been paid a good salary for  every day's service he ever rendered  the city in any capacity. The City-  of Nelson * does not owe him anything other ' than fair treatment.'  He has never made any sacrifices in  order that the city should prosper;  no more than hundreds, of  young men in Nelson who have  never drawn a dollar from the city  treasury. There should be no mere  sympathy-in this matter. If the  people of Nelson have been paying  for something that- they did not'  get, they want to know it.  The campaign that closes today  has, on  the whole, been conducted  without mud throwing or unseemly  indulgence   in   personalities.     Mr.  Galliher, the first candidate in the  field, has from  the  platform   declared   fealty to   the party   that  nominated him and has not-made  dem'ogogieappeais'for supportrfrom-  the Labor element.   He has f ought  fair, and has made but one mistake,  and that was in denying he had-  signed a petition without -first 'refreshing   his memory before committing   himself.    As   it  was, he:  only signed the petition as the vice-  president   of   a mining, company.  Mr. Foley, the candidate of the Independent'Labor'party, has shown  himself a good campaigner.    Without political experience, he has gone;  from town to  town in  this almost  limitless     constituency    unaccompanied, and  everywhere has been  treated as a man of strong convictions, able to hold his  own in debate.    Mr. Foley's candidacy should  be an object lesson  to the people  who believe that the men'who labor  are lacking in the qualities that are  required in men who become political leaders.    The last candidate  in  tlie field was .Toliri McKane, and today he is the best known of the  three candidates.    This is because  he took advantage of one or-two  weak spots in his opponents, and  made the most of his  opportunity.  This is politics, and Mr. McKane  must be  recognized hereafter as a  politician  that   no   man   need   be  ashamed : to follow- into a contest.  Thereaders of'The Tribune,those  of them   who  are voters,  will  on  Thursday make no .great mistake  by   placing a   mark   opposite  the  ���WRITTEN  BY LIBERALS.  Tun Triu-xi* has placed a part of one column  at the disposal of the Liberals, whose views  will be expressed therein from time to time during the campaign. A like privilege is accorded  the Labor party and the Conservatives.  There was a crowded and enthusiastic rally at W. A. Galliher's  committee rooms on Monday evening, at whicli S. S. Taylor, Q.C., was  the principal speaker. Mr. Taylor  traversed a number of the extraordinary statements which' sir  Charles, in the absence of all opposition, made in the opera house on  Saturday night.  Amongst others he completely  answered the charge brought by  sir Charles .against the Liberal government of having changed the  election act so that Japs and Chinese might, vote.  Under the old act fresh lists had  to be made at each general election  at a cost of millions to the country  and to tho great advantage of the  government in power. The Liberals did away with this abuse by  adopting the Provincial lists all  over the Dominion.  In many provinces provincial  officials such as judges, sheriff's and  policemen were, though their  names might be on the lists, disqualified from voting at provincial  elections. There was, however,  no reason why they should not  vote at Dominion elections, so a  general clause was introduced permitting persons laboring under a  provincial disqualification to vote  at Dominion elections. Chinese  and J.aps were not mentioned in the  clause and no one intended they  should be covered by it. In fact no  one thought of them at all, but, by  a legal quibble, the clause had been'  strained to include the" Japs and  Chinese according to the judgment  of chief justice McColl, which will  probably be overruled on appeal.  But what avus the existing situation? In no ease could the Japs  and Chinese vote at the present  election, for.the elections will be  held on the lists"as. revised last  May, and no'. names subsequently  added can'be voted on now. Thus'  if the judgment were quashed the  Mongolians would not be able to  vote "and no harm is done; while if  the judgment "were sustained the  election act will be amended "before  the next general election, and again  no harm is done. At the worst it  was an oversight whicli could not  result in any harm and which could  not end in a single Mongolian voting. Neither could sir Charles Tup-,  per gird at this oversight, for, like  most of the clauses in the act, it  was passed unanimously, sir Charles  Tupper, the hon. Clarke Wallace  and Mr. Puttee, Labor member for  Winnipeg, being among those who  voted for it. . So -much for the latest Conservative mare's nest, a fair  sample of the desperate straits the  Tories are drivento to obtain votes.  ^. 0* .-. ��� p0.00 ��� j*. ^. ^0.00 ��� ^. 00 ��� 00- 00' 00 ^. >^, .^. >���*. .^ .����__ --"ST* ,,*����. *"*����� ��� ^ �����T��~>*-^ ���^Hr* ^* ���'*��__-'��� **��?��� 'Vijf**"  i*-_t*c_3xxit*s**:n_i-r'q     /,7~:  C*n_u-_uuix*__xxx-EX*cxxx~-:-x*'xr*-;  h   Holiday g  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  h  Novelties  Arriving Daily.

Lhe disposal of the independent Laborers,,  whose views will bo expressed therein from  timo to lime during the campaign. A like privilege Is accorded iho Conservatives and the  Liberals.  The time has arrived, the crisis  is at hand,when tho workers of  British Columbia will prove to their  fellows in the Dominion that they  tire stanch in their, determination  to uphold the cause of labor in the  house of parliament.  Fellow workers, artisans, mechanics, laborers of .all descriptions,  if you throw away this golden opportunity you will become the  laughing stock of all the politicians  aud their toadies who have endeavored to beguile you from the  straight path which lies before you.  At present you are enjoying a  higher wage and you live in superior domestic comfort than your  fellow laborers in the east, and  above all you can command the respect due to you from men in superior positions. It is only a few  years ago that your eastern brethren enjoyed tho same advantages,  but owing to their inaction -and  want of organization they have had  their privileges curtailed to such an  extent that they have been reduced  to the position of mere nonentities  and are perfectly unable to rise  from their present dependent position. ���  Now, union men, members of the  powerful organizations ' that have  been established in this progressive  province, do not let any party considerations induce you to fail in the  great obligations you are tinder , to  your families audfriends. All political measures will go on without  the addition of another political  partisan in the house. Yourboun-  den duty is to,keep-up.the great  structure of freedom aud equality  that you have raised and not show  by indifference to your own Labor  cause that you are willing' to become the political tools of either  party.  Every worker and especially  overy union man must ignore his  own political tendencies and vote  for the Labor candidate, who is  certainly able and worthy to champion their cause.  Do not be deceived by the specious arguments of the political deceivers who arrogantly boast that  they hold-the working voters under  their . thumbs. Certainly all previous experience warrants their assertions. They know that all.the  concessions granted to" labor have  never- been detrimental to their  own interests, and have always-  been given with an abundance  of oily flattery to . take" away the'  sting of the harsh measures that  j*-gneraUx accompany them. ___  The matter is very simple.  Throw away your chance now and  in a very short time you will most  heartily regret your stupidity.  As soon as the employers and  their friends find that you are not  faithful to your professions, that  you play ftist and louse with your  privileges; that yon cannot resist  the opportunity of becoming a  political body, you can say goodbye to your present proud position  of being an equivalent factor in  labor operations.  WRITTEN    BY    CONSERVATIVES.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  without   saying   that   the matter  will be ventilated and the man who  will take an active   part therein*  will   be   our   prospective member,  John McKane.  Among the various and sundry  advantages which have accrued to  Vancouvor during the past four  years at the instance of Mr. Maxwell, the Liberal member, and which  number exactly 09, is a tea taster.  It is pleasant to know that a paternal government is seeing that no  poisonous adulteration of the favorite beverage is palmed off on a  trusting public, although it hardly  occurs to one that in a more than  one way wet place like Vancouver  such precaution was necessary with  -regard to tea. Rather that due  diligence should be exercised to see  that the more "gingerly" bever-.  erages pass muster to a grade to  befit an advanced populace such as  the Terminal City, which from reports received is doubtful.  Prom all quarters come the most  encouraging   reports of John McKane's   prospects    on    Thursday;  thei e is h.ardly a doubt but that he-  will go in on a good round majority.  The-people are going  to vote for-  him largely on account of his  personality and for- the  reason that-it  would be fatal to send sir Wilfred,  another supporter.   Anyway, this  constituency  is   and   always   has  been Conservative to the backbone.  Mr. Bostock captured it in 'f)0  and  paid high* for, his' whistle and has"  since found out that political and  journalistic ambition is  rather expensive  and   better   left  to those  whose fortunes run into six figures.

It is unfortunate for this district  that organizations formed on commercial lines and for the benefit of  all, should fall into the hands of aspiring politicians; who eventually  succeed in shearing them of useful--  ness. The recently projected  chamber of. mines for Yale and  Kootenay is the latest bird to be  plucked for political purposes, and  at wliicli task J. B. McArthur of  Rossland. the president, is now  busy. Not satisfied with lending  his energies to help elect the Liberal candidate, this overzealous  and restless politician mustV needs  drag the barely formed chamber  into the arena and blow himself  "as president" to the minister of the  interior; for plain J. B. McArthur  to do so would fall short of his  views of self aggrandizaement at the  expense of an absolutely non-partisan combination for mutual assistance and advancement.

By a notice appearing elsewhere  it will be seen that tenders are being called for the erection of a public building at Nelson.  Miss Gray was added to the  nursing staff of the general hospital  yesterday. She is a graduate of a  well-kuown Scottish hospital.  Mary Gooderow will be arraigned  before magistrate Crease this morning on the charge of selling liquor  at Pilot Bay wit bout a license.  Guy Carlton was removed from  the Clarke hotel to the general hospital yesterday. He is suffering  from the effects of an ax wound  which injured the bones in the  knee.  The election of officers for the ensuing year is the special business at  tonight's, meeting of JNrelsOii)s .Queen  Lodge, Sons of England Benefit  Society. A strong turnout of members is requested.  The collection taken in * the  city churches on Sunday for the  Ladies' Hospital Aid fund, will realize a neat sum. The secretary,  Mrs. Stocks, has received $100 to  date, with a couple of other chu relies  to be heard from.  John W. Dow of Creston is at the.  Queen's. He reports work on the  Alice mine as progressing steadily.  He also says that the people of that  section of Goat river division are  well pleased with the way the  money for roads and trails has been  expended.  Some of the property owners  whose premises are unoccupied at.  times complain of the wasteful destruction of their property by in-r  traders. The police are as watchful as men can well be; and if anyone is caught in the act of trespassing on private property they will  be made au example of.  The city rock crusher has been  working satisfactorily for two days,  and Baker street should be macadamized as far as the Bank of Montreal corner by the end of next  week. Two more sidewalk gangs  will be put on tomorrow, so that  the sidewalks ordered to be laid can  be completed before cold weather  sets in.  H. B. Thomson, ex-alderman of  Nelson and now managing a trading syndicate at the 150-Mile House  in Cariboo, left Nelson on Saturday  for a trip to his old home in Ireland, where he will probably spend  two months before returning to  British Columbia. May he have all  the pleasure that he is able to  stand. o  The Miner says that insurance  companies can fasten on any excuse  for maintaining the."robber tariff"  that prevails now. Yes; some of  them are beginning to believe that  the "robbers" are not all connected  with theinsurancecompanies. Some  of the "robbers" are men that get  insurance and afterward refuse to  pay for it.           Gas at Spokane.  Bruce White returned yesterday  from a brief run to .Spokane. Mr.  White states that mining matters  are^veryJlat.at^Spokane.aiumarked^  coatrast to the feeling in the Kootenays. He rati across some Califor-  nian natural gas experts who  claimed to have discovered an excellent illuminating and heating  gas near the city. The Los Angeles  men had experimented with the gas  and were going out to investigate  further yesterday.  Chief Jarvis arrived soon after the  lad was locked up and took the boy  home. Then the chief looked on  benignantly while (he maternal  parent applied a rough shingle  vigorously. Last night there  wasn't a single small boy in evidence, for the word had gone  around that * the next offender  would sleep in the cells over night.  WANT A  BRICK ADDITION  To General Hospital.  Several of the directors of the  Nelson general hospital have started  to discuss further additions to the  institution and to point out that  any further increase in the building  should be built of brick rather than  wood. Dr. O. Meredith Jones, the  well-kuown coast surgeon, who was  here a week or so ago, strongly recommended this move, and the directors have gone into the matter  briefly. The completion of the cottage addition how under way will  temporarily relieve the 'congestion  at the hospital, but as- a .portion."of  the building must be reserved for  the nurses who now room outside  it is more than-probable'-that if the  patronage of the hospital increases  at anything like the rate of progress for the last six' months the director** will be faced with a pressing demand for more room, the alternative being to refuse to accept  patients, a course which would  speedily undo the good work which  has been done in the interests of  the institution.  A number of the .directors feel  that brick should be used iu the  construction of the wing as proposed for next year. Their reasons  for this are that the cost of material is not so far apart as has been  the case heretofore 'a'n'd- that the results are very much more'satisfactory. A brick buildiug is cooler in  summer and warmer in winter, both '  important factors in the management of .a hospital.'-'- Possibly the  strongest recommendation for the  brick building is the protection it  .affords against fire. It is felt that  to house an additional twenty or  thirty sick and helpless people in  another frame" building would be  unwise anda strong effort will be  made to introduce brick into any  further additions.  E.  It saves many dollars,  our goods and our prioos.  opposim  fOtnOVWlOB.  STRACHAN BROTHERS, Plumbers  Where Ts William Hickey ?  Chief of police Jarvis was requested by wire yesterday from  Rossland to give any information  he might possess as to the whereabouts of William Hickey, who was  known to be in Nelson not long  ago. James Hickey, a brother, was  killed in the Nickel Plate mine on  Monday night and the authorities  desired to secure information which  might lead to the location of the  unfortunate man's relatives.
