 DAILY  EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR_  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  *���  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  FRIDAY MORNING NOVEMBER 30  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  THE LOWER SIMILKAMEEN COUNTRY  About the District Around the Weil-Known Nickel Plate  Mine and Its History to Date.  PRINCIPAL GAMP IN SECTION NAMED AFTER NELSON MAN  Tlio lower Siinilkamoen country,  occupying n territory, approximately 20 miles square, lying between Twenty-mile and Keremeos  creeks, is a mineral district fully  equal in merit to the upper Similkameen country and undoubtedly  I ono of the most important of tho  newer mining sections of the province. Much has been written and  said regarding the copper belt of  the Similkameen, but there seems  to be little doubt that the great  copper-gold veins of the lower  country will eventually be regarded  as among tho most remarkable deposits in British Columbia. The  district in question abounds in  strong veins of copper-iron pre resembling the mineral of the Rossland camp and free-millingorecarry-  ing high values in arsenical iron.  The hills have been extensively  prospected and many locations recorded, but generally speaking development has not reached an advanced stage because of the fact  that it has been difficult to bring  in supplies. The altitude is well  onto (JOO0 feet, which explains one  of the drawbacks surrounding min-  i ng. The district is divided into  camps, among these being .Hedley,  Vnneman, Pearson and Black's.  The Nickel Plate, now a widely  known property, isythe ^center  round which the history of the section revolves. It was staked in  I SOS by Arundel and Woolastou,  who took samples of the ore to the  coast quite unaware that\tl_*eir .find  was-anythiug"more than an aver-  ttge-"prospect. Assays disclosed the  fact that the specimens ran $100,  and a meeting took place between  the prospectors and M. K. Rogers,  a representative of the Marcus  .1 )aly-oSjrn'dicate.- As a result the  Nickel Plate was bonded for a year  at $60,000. Mr. Rogers started development work, and at the expira- I  tion of the bond was so well satisfied that the purchase was closed.  When it became known; that the  Nickel Plate deal would go through  a rush ensued, and all the surrounding ground was staked during  the winter despite the fact that  four to six feet of snow lay on the  ground. Even before tho Nickel  Plate was located R. -R. Hedley, manager of the Hall Mines  smelter, had a partner, nanfed Pete  .Scott on the ground, and several  claims were staked, among these  being    the   Rollo    and    Mountain  Tlipn. When it became desirable-  to designate the locality definitely  a meeting was held and the prospectors united upon tlie name of  Canip Hodley. A townsite has  been laid out at the foot of the hill,  and this is called Hedley City. The  Nickel Plate people have a number  of claims adjoining their original  purchase. Since the bond was  taken up as large a crew was employed as was possible under the  circumstances, when all supplies  and material had to be packed up a  trail from the creek 2000 feet almost perpendicularly. The government road promised from Keremeos  to Princeton did not materialize,  and when the necessity for transportation facilities became a burning question Rogers olfered to pay  half the cost of a road to Princeton. This was done at an outlay of  $0000, and is now completed. The  road will enable supplies to reach  the camp, and a stronger crew  will be worked on the property  with air compressor and other plant.  Ore will also be shipped out. The  Nickel Plate has $250,000 worth of  ore on tho dump, ranging in value  from $40 to $400. The high grade  product only will be shipped and  the result will be awaited with  keen interest. C. Arundel, one of  the locators of tho Nickel Plate,  owns tho Bulldog claim adjoining  and the development work to date  indicates the presence of a vein  which will probably be as rich fis  anything in the camp. The Mound,  also adjoining the Nickel Plate, is  owned by two Swedes, who have  refused $10,000 for the property.  While the rush to Camp Hedley  The claims are now surveyed  group of eight called  the  was in progress, Nels Steele and  Louis Vunainan, well-known prospectors/crossed to an adjoining  mountain and in prospecting  tlio east slope discovered indications of similar conditions to those  of tho first camp. In prospecting  the hill where the wash had  not covered everything they  found the red earth impregnated  with gold colors which was  lirst noticed in the early days of  the Rossland camp and since has  become a feature of all tlie well-  known Boundary camps. The two  men located four claims and with  the assistance of Frank Richter, a  wealthy cattle rancher of the Similkameen, spent the winter on the  ground. They worked steadily,  demonstrating the presence of a  very large vein of high grade ore  carrying gold, silver and arsenical  iron. It was also demonstrated  that the mountain was a network  of cross veins from six inches to  two feet in width carrying unusual-;  ly high values, assays having been  secured of $79, $10S, .$274-.and so  on  into  a  Black Pine group. The property  was purchased last spring by Edward Bullock-Webster, and during  the summer the vein was opened  and traced for almost the distance  of two claims. Because of the difficulty of getting in supplies before  tho Rogers road was completed operations were suspended until  spring. Around this group is the  Savage owned by O. De B. Green,  P. L. S., and partners. The showing is excellent and some of the assays have gone as high as $1200.  : Pearson's Camp was established  by Nels Pearson, a prospector of  more than average judgment, who  is known throughout the Kootenays. He located on Pearson moun -  tain above the timber line a quartz  ledge with clean walls which could  bo traced for 3000 feet, which he  staked as the Independence. Adjoining this is the Monarch, a great  mass of pyritic ore, the extent of  which has not been established.  These properties are Under bond to  a Cripple Creek, Colorado, party, at  .$50.00.  .���-...-;    y  Black's Camp was located by  Dave Black and his brothers, who  are largely interested in claims.  Tlie Dividend property in this camp  was located by Joe Marcel four  years ago, and a half interest purchased by R. L. Cawston. Recently  it was sold to the Keremeos Mining  Syndicate for $2000. The Dividend  jias^tjarge body^pf coppejMi'onj*��j*e,  carrying some gold, and the^ vein  has been traced for a considerable  distance, indicating tlie enormous  extent of the deposit.  The discoveries on Stag Horse  mountain, a grassy peak S000 feet  high overlooking all the hills between the Similkameen and Okanogan rivers, were made almost by accident. A trapper named C. Allison was looking for horses when he  stumbled over a large outcrop, and  staked the Ram's Horn claim,  James Riordan of Princeton, took a  half interest in the property and  eventually acquired tlie whole  claim. He has worked up to the  present time and because of the  peculiar formation has been able  to demonstrate the presence of a  fine body of ore carrying values as  high as $65, an unusually large assay considering the size of the ore  body. When Riordan acquired  control he made over a half interest to the Keremoes Mining Syndicate and a bond was taken at $30,-  000. on tho Rani's Horn by .John  Micklejohu of Vancouver, who is  now in Glasgow floating a company.  Elkhorn mountain at tlie juncture of Olalla and Keremeos creeks  three miles north of the Similkameen creek, is a great red bluff resembling the Red mountain of the  Rossland camp, aud has been a conspicuous feature of the country. In  the summer of 189G Messrs. Coute-  ney, Williams and Sharp, traveling north from the Colville reservation, decided the mountain was rich  in mineral and located the ground  together with other claims across  the creek.   Last year they sold out J  to W. C. McDougall and C. S. Morris, and this led to the formation  of the Keremeos Mining Syndicate  backed by J. B. McArthur of Rossland.   The syndicate has acquired  between  50 and 60 claims in  the  district and 320 acres of land  near  Elkhorn   mountain,    where    thoy  have   laid   out   the    townsite   of  Olalla.    On the Bullion claim across  the creek a tunnel has been driven  400 feet.    It is to go iu a  total distance of S00 feet for the purpose of  crosscuttmg veins exposed  on the  surface.     The syndicate has purchased the   Opulence  claim from  Riley and Sproule and  interests in  tho Flag Staff and Copper Kettle,  rich- in  bornite, among other properties.      The    Something    Good  claim in this district also has an  accidental discovery in its history.  In 1SS7  while   on a hunting trip  Charles    Richter    and   C.   Allison  chanced across the ledge from which  they chipped specimens for assay  purposes.   It proved to be a tellu-  ride proposition and the two specimens ran $1500 and $2000 in gold  respectively.   The company owning  the cyanide plant 311st across the  boundary   line   bonded   the claim  and     shipped     fifteen     tons     of  ore,     but      as     the      ore      did  not prove amenable to the method  of treatment the bond was thrown  up.   Two years ago the Something  Good was purchased by E. Bullock  Webster and C. de B. Green, the  latter afterwards disposing of his  interest to the  Beally Investment  Company of Greenwood, and a contract was let for 50 feet of additional tunnelling.   The owners are  now awaiting the advent of railroad facilities before doing further  work.   The Roadside is an adjoining property, owned  by Shatford  and Mangot of Fairview.   It gives  good values in gold and copper, and  development will be continued in  the spring.    Higher up   the mountain-is  the   Copper King with an  enormous lead of low grade copper-  iron ore.   It   is   owned   by   John  Buchan and John Stevens, the lat-*  ter being the  fortunate  locator  of  the Knob Hill   and   Old Ironsides  mines at Phoenix.    Below-the King  is; tho Golconda, owned; by Archie  and Dan McEachren.   The owners  have plnckily started in" to develop  the   property ou their own hook  and have tunneled  80  feet to tap  tho Copper King vein.   They .are  confident   of   success  this winter.  The Dolphin claim is on the hillside   across   the   valley, and  was  located by Pitman and .lordan, who  have done considerable work.   The  property was bonded last year, but  the deal fell through.  The principal town in the district is Keremeos at the junction of  Keremeos creek with the Similkameen river. It is the commercial  center of the country, from which  the trails leading up the river and  the Fairview and Penticton wagon  roads branch out.  Lack of railroad facilities has  heretofore been a great drawback  to the progiess of the lower Similkameen, aud the want is still unfilled, although the C. P. R, has lo-  cated^ay in e.==th L*ough=the=district.  from Midway to Speriice's Bridge.  When this is an accomplished fact  it is understood a smelter will be  instituted in the heart of the  country.

Here is the opinion of a gentleman who is conceded  to be the best posted lire insurauce  agent in Nelson:   "Nelson  should  " have a paid fire department, with  " a chief who has' gained his ex-  " perience   in   paid'   departments,  " There is, no doubt, good material  "in the present department out of  " which to make firemen; but fire-  ���* men must have someone to train  "them, and   after   being trained  " someone    to     command    them.  "When   experienced underwriters  " come here   from San Francisco,  " they simply smile when asked to  " compare' the fire department of  " Nelson with the fire department  " of Rossland.   In addition to the  " paid department, Nelson should  " have au   up-to-date   fire   alarm  " system.   I have no personal feel-  " ing against the' suspended chief,  ���* but I do   not * consider that he  " made a capable: head of the de-  " partraent when he had the chance.  " The mayor is* taking  the stand  " thatrhas the approval of men who  " dofthe insurance business of the  " city."     The     opinion     of  - the  gentleman      quoted      above      is  worth  more  thaii  that of all the  life insurance agents in the   city  on the question at issue.    The man-,  ager.of the largest wholesale house  in- Nelson   stated   yesterday:   "I  "approve     of   ;rthe -course  . the  " mayor" has "taken*'ii^-suspendihg-  " the   chief  of; the   fire   brigade.  " Nelson should- have a first-class  " fireman in charge of a paid fire  " department."   The proprietor of  the   largest   dry   goods  house   on  Baker   street   says:   "The mayor  "has my support in the fight he is  " making for .ran efficient fire de-  ".partraent.''    There   is   altogether  "too much politics in the fire hall."  A gentleman who is.called a "King"  in more than one pursuit remarked  yesterday:   "The mayor is making  "the right kind of a fight, and he  ������*. has the backbone to win."   These  men represent thousands of dollars  of money invested in improved real  estate and in stocks of merchandise; none of them are politicians.  They have their money in Nelson,  and they want to see   the  town  keep pace with the growth of the  country, of which it is the commer-  cial   center--^?STclson can have���a  paid fire department, in charge of  au experienced and capable chief,  within a month if the aldermen  will only co-operate with the  mayor. Tho people demand it, and  what the people want they generally get.  CANADIAN  SHIP r BUILDING  To Be Revived.  Montreal, November 29.���A big  company is on tho eve of organization, which will, its promoters confidently expect, restore the prestige  of the maritime provinces of Canada as a ship-building center, a  prestige shattered by the passing  away of the wooden ship. The  company is being organized for the  building of steel ships, and, it i��  asserted, will be the largest concern of tho kind on tho continent.  The yards will be located at St.  John, New Brunswick, and Halifax,  Nova Scotia. Already the Dominion government and ! the governments of Nova Scotia and New  Brunswick have been approached  and. have agreed to liberally subsidize the now company in much the  same way as the big Dominion Iron  and Steel Company, whose plant is  located at Sydney, Cape Breton, is  subsidized.  This latter undertaking plays an  important part in the new company, as the Sydney concern will  supply the steel necessary. With a  steel supply almost at the doors of  the shipyards and an inexhaustible  supply of coal equally placed it ii  said that steel ships will be turned  out by the new company at lesn  than Clyde prices. Several Nova  Scotia shipbuilders are interested  in the new company but the principals are members of the Dominion  Iron and Steel Syndicate, the president of which is H, M. Whitney of  Boston. ���   A Chinese Typhoon.  * Victoria, November 29.���China  news from Hong Kong by steamer  Progress reports a typhoon n/t Tou-  rane in October lasting 48 hours  ' and destroying villages and buildings.

The government has been informed of his  impending visit.  SOME OF THE UNFORTUNATES WERE BURNED TO DEATH  San Francisco, California, November 29.���By the collapse of the  roof of the San Francisco and Pacific Glass "Works, at 15th and Bryant  streets, this afternoon a number of  people were killed and about 50  more or less injured.     c-  The victims were watching a  football game between Stanford  University and the University of  California teams, when the roof beneath them gave away, precipitating them to the floor of the factory. Some of them fell upon the  furnaces and one man of unknown  identity was burned almost to a  crisp. The crash of the falling  roof was heard a great distance  away and thousands of people hurried to the scene. Messengers were  sent to the - city hospital and the  morgue and all the available ambulances were hurried to the spot.  At the central hospital at one  o'clock five of the injured had been  received. At the time of the accident there was but one doctor on  duty at the hospital and he was  totally unable to attend to the  cases as they came in. A summons  was sent out immediately, calling  on doctors in the neighborhood to  come to render assistance.  The crowd was gathered on the  roof of the building directly over  the furnace of the glass works.  When the roof collapsed the occupants were precipitated upon the  heated top aud rolled oft. Fully. 30  were killed, several of them being  boys ranging in age, from 10 to 15  years..;..They werefound lyingin a  row/ many, of them badly mangled.  There were more than 200 people on  the roof when it collapsed. Those'  fortunate enough to be on 'a side  section j of the building hurried  down and helped remove the in-,  jured. The heat around the furnace was so great, however, tluitno^  | assistance   could be rendered, aud  they slowly roasted to death.  Not 200 yards away were 2000  people watching the football game.  When the news became known  there was intense excitement among  them. The ushers went through  the crowd calling for doctors, and  many surgeons hurriedly left the  game. The living victims of the  disaster were taken to various hospitals.  The Southern Pacific hospital,  within two blocks of the scene, was  soon overcrowded. Many of the  wounded had to be turned away. -  They were hurried to St. Luke's,*  the receiving hospital, and nearby  drug stores, and so scattered were  they among the various institutions  that it was at first impossible to  tell exactly how many were hurt or *.  how seriously they wore injured.  The coroner did not have enough  wagons to  remove  the dead, and  they were taken away in express  wagons.   Many   private   carriages1"  were waiting outside the football  grounds, and   these' were  pressed',  into, service   to    take   away   the*  wounded.  A high fence surrounds the glass  works   grounds and  thousands, of'  people attempted to get inside- the''"'  enclosure.   They   were   restrained,  with difficulty by a large  force of  police.    The following is a list of  the identified dead: . George Extell.y  William Valancia, William Vanlina'i '  of   Pasadena;   J: ��� A.    Mulrooney,"4 >"*  Thomas Rippon and John Oakes.  One unidentified body of a boy  was also found.    So far as knownj*  this list comprises all the dead, as *  the first reports were exaggerated.   '.  It is reported that one man, Joseph-~  Gt'imper,"*fell into the furnace and'-  his body was incinerated. The manager of the glass works realized the  danger before the accident occured"  and had sent for the police to compel the crowd to��� leave.    Just as a  '*-  squad of   polico" arrived   the*- roof"  went down."   ^       "  y*i  k  ���h  -\:<?*:_?,1  ilpL  SESSSI  &:&m_  c*��iV35js  .?;.\_.%k_v  '"'V-iV****--*.  fit  CAPTURE OF DEWETSDORP  Disturbs Great Britain.  London, November 29.���Lord  Roberts cables irom Johannesburg  under date of Wednesday, November 28th: "The Dewetsdorp garrison of two guns of tlie 08th field  .battery, witli detachments of the  Gloucestershire regiment, the Highland light infantry and Irish rifles,  four hundred in all  surrendered at  5:30 p. m. November 23rd. Our  losses were 1:1 men killed and -12  wounded, including major H. J.  Anson and captain Digby. The  enemy is said to be 2500 strong.  Four hundred men were despatched  from Edenburg to relievo Dewetsdorp, but they did not succeed in  reaching there in time. Knox  joined this force ��aud found Dewetsdorp evacuated. Seventy-live sick  and wounded had been left. Knox  pursued and is reported to have successfully engaged Steyn and Dewet  near Vaal bank November 27th.  They retired west and southwest.  Knox's messenger failed to get  through so I have no details."  London, November 30.���The disaster at Dewetsdorp has sent a  thrill of alarm throughout Great  Britain. The censorship continues  so strict that there is no hope of  arriving at a clear conception of  the actual position of affairs in  South Africa. For instance, independent accounts of the subsequent  proceedings and the recapture of  Dewetsdorp give simple details, not  omitting to announce tho capture  of two Boer wagons and a quantity  of loot, but there is not the slightest mention of the surrender of -100  British troops and two guns.  "The ubiquitous Dewet" seems  to have gotten away aud so far  there is no news that the captured  have been liberated. Taking into  consideration the enigmatical military situation north of the Orange  river, the smoldering rebellion in  Cape Colony, the rumors that  France has promised Mr. Kruger to  press arbitration on England if he  is   able   to    obtain    the    support  of Germany, and that lord  Kitcnener after all is not  to be given the chief eo.nmand in  South Africa, the British" government will meet the new parliament  next week at an exceedingly inopportune moment.  Lobs of the Yosemite.  Manila, Noveniber 29.���Rear admiral Remey has as yet received no  official report of the loss of the  United States auxiliary cruiser  Yosemite, which parted her cables  and struck a reef off the harbor of  San Luis D'Apra, island of Guam,  during tlie typhoon of November  13th. According to advices received  here from unofficial sources the  wind was blowing at the rate of 100  miles an hour. The Yosemite had  her anchors down but both dragged  across the harbor entrance. At 11  a.m. she struck the reef. She  drifted for an hour and at noon  struck the rocks, carrying away  her rudder and damaging her propeller. A launch had been sentlo  find shelter'but it capsized and the  occupants were drowned. They  were coxswain Swan son, seaman  George Aubel, engineer J. J. Mal-  ancey,and Firemen J. L. Davis and  Joseph Anderson. Finally 138. of  the Yosemite's crew, 20 marines  and 9 officers were transferred to  the United States collier Justin, together with $48,000 Mexican money.  The Yosemite soon plunged headforemost and sank. Tho mombers  of the crew were provided with  temporary quarters in Agana, which  suffered badly from the hurricane.  A Slight Mistake.  Alhanv, November 29.���An attempt to kidnap Mae Stebbens, a  dancer at Proctor's theater, was  made by Geo. Fletcher Hewitt of  London lato last night, whom "he  mistook for his wife Alice. He, in  company with Reginald Duraut, a  lawyer from Howe <fc Hummel's office, New York, wont to the rear  of the theater with a cab. When  Miss Stebbens stepped from the  door he seized her, exclaiming:  "Alice, my wife" and attempted to  force her into the carriage. The  lady's screams attracted a crowd  and Hewitt/ was arrested.

This will'be news to the following-named printers who are employed in the office of.Tiie Tribune,  namely, Charles II. Ink, Charles V.  "~DakerH7'H7Watts,-.T���Or" Fletcher;*  J. W. Mclntyre, A. It. Hoerle, Fred,  Meuary, William M. Dooly, J. Peck.  MacSwain, S.  D. McGrath, -W.   J.  Ilill.'Frank McGanna,  and  Charles-  Webster.5, It will also be news to R.  ���A. Renwick,  who is an honorary  member of Victoria Typographical  Union, and John Houston, who is  an honorary member of Greenwood  Typographical Union, both of whom  are employed on The Tribune as  editors.   It will also be news to the  traveling printers who have found'  hospitable treatment in The Tribune office since the first day of its  publication,   in   1892.    When   the  union was formed in  Nelson, printers were wording on the Miner for  $15 and $18 a week.    They wanted  a raise to the in-ices paid  by The  Tribune, that- is, to $21 and $25  per week.-   They could not get the:  raise without the support of the  men   working   on   The- Tribune.  They got that- support, and  now  they are -receiving   union   wages,  much against the wishes of the conductors of the Miner.    The Miner  is disgusting even to its few friends  with its constant villifieation  of a  man who happens to be the editor  of  The  Tribune   and   mayor  of  Nelson.  of justice in the federal government,  -iiicceotlin-,' Hon. David Mills, who  is to go upon the supreme oonrf;  bench. Should this prove to be well  founded it will be had for the present Taiberal government in the  premier's province. That Ontario's  legislature is Liberal today is almost solely due to the aggressive  policy which premiei Ross inaugurated. He was the central figure  in the fight to preserve the natural wealth of that province for its  people, and his determined stand  for export duties upon timber and  ores drew to the Liberal candidates a strength which they  would otherwise have failed to secure. Ontario is -just now beginning to re.ilize the benefits of this  policy. It created what is now  known as the New Ontario, Avhich  is destined within a very few years  to be the greatest manufacturing  center on the American continent.  Premier Ross set an example in his  treatment of the mining resources  of Ontario which British Columbia  could follow with advantage. Ontario owes him much for his pro-  gressiveness, but once he is out of  provincial politics his successors  may find some difficulty in collecting the debt.  What the Government Promises.  Rossland, November 28.���To the  Editor of The Tribune: I have read  with a great deal of interest Mr.  Topping's letter which appeared in  yourissue of- Monday *last-and-your-  comments -thereon. As one who  has taken a great - deal of interest  in the various questions affecting  the mining. and smelting interests  in British Columbia, I desire to say  a word on the mattei-.  When the Hon.-Mr. Sifton was in  Rossland last week I took occasion  in my capacity as. provisional president of the chamber of mines to  bring to his attention its objects  and to point out to him what the  Dominion government could safely  do. to advance the mining and  smelting interests, of f5riti.-".h Col-  umbia.  The latest political rumor from  the east has it that Hon. ,G. W.  Ross is about to resign the-premiership of Ontario, to become minister  I found in discussing these matters with him that he had a larger  grasp of the importance of those  interests and of the- mining re-  .sonrces as well than any public  man I have met in Canada. I found  him also keenly desirous of taking  hold of them in a way that would  gratify tho most enthusiastic of us.  I am safe In saying that so far as  he is concerned that no effort will  bo spared to effect the following  objects:  1. The establishment of a, first-  class miniug journal in London  Eng., for the publication and dissemination of the greatness of the  mineral resources, and the development going on in the mines; and  the establishment and operation of,  smelters in British Columbia. All  this news will have the .authority  and approval of the Dominion Government.  2. Tho immediate appointment  of a commission composed of the  best men obtainable in America to  thoroughly investigate the reduc.-  tion of oresj and the refining of  their product in Canada, whether  the same be gold, copper, silver or  lead. This commission will be .asked  to advise the government whether  it should in anywise aid that industry either by a duty or a bonus;  The- report bf the - commission. will  belaid before the parliament during the coming session.  3. The appointment of an eminent geological and mineralogical  expert who will devote himself exclusively to the investigation aud  production of theses on the best  and latest methods of mining, the  smelting of ores, the refining of tho  product, and other  phases of both  these (iiiestious  whicli  will   iu any  way tend to the adoption of cheap  i and economical methods nf mining,  ' smelting and refining.  I am quite sure that if Mr. Sifton  will put into these matters the  same energy, skill and judgment  which lie has shown in the settlement of Manitoba and the Northwest, that British Columbia will  have great reason to be thankful  that they have such a young, able,  and vigorous minister of the inte-*  rior as they possess in Mr. Sifton.  It will be of immense importance  to mine owners, especially of'tho  Kootenay-Yale-Cariboo districts, if  they secure the ear of the London  m.arket through the good offices of  and backed by the very great influence and power of the. Dominion  government.  It seems to me that in view of  the very probable adoption of this  policy by the Dominion government  at once that every mine owner,  miner and those interested in the  kindred industries and Avho are dependent upon the successful" operation of them should rally to the  support of Mr. Galliher ou the Ctli  of December in order tl^,t Mr, Sifton may have a man who is iu his  confidence and with whom he can  readily advise aud easily seek counsel in regard to these matters.  Mr. Sifton was wonderfully impressed as well as pleased with the  development which* he saw going  on in the .mines of the different  camps he visited,-with the hundreds of coke ovens at Fernie, the  large smelters at Nelson, Trail,  Grand Forks and Greenwood, all  largely in a measure the result of  the construction of the Crow's Nest  railway, for which he was chiefly  responsible.  There can be no two opinions  about the desirability of strengthening his hands in all these matters  by the election of Mr. Galliher.  ���T. B. McAimiuto.

Wilson, one of  the principals in a divorce bureau  in New York City. Following is a  description .of the method': employed in its conduct:  Documents show that the conspirators had handled thousands of  case9 within the last three j'ears,  and that money had poured into  ; them: in a steady stream. On an  a'verage..$70 was paid'for. each decree, and in some cases as high as  $2">0. The raid was directed by  assistant district attorneys Unger  and Gordon. Zimmor's desk was  forced open at first. It contained  hundred's of letters from men and  women all over tlio country regarding the progress of their suits. In  Alaison's desk were a large collection of the same nature, along Avith  OOOO or more specially prepared  blanks of enquiry.- Nearly all of  those letters were marked with the  amount their client had -forwarded, and Messrs. Unger and  Gordon took all the'"'papers they  could find respecting the cases of  Hopper and Herrick, on which it is  hoped to base the indictment.  Mrs. Herrick was taken to the  district attorney's office, where she  made a statement telling all she  knew of the.affair.   ...  Mr. Unger. refused to make public  the details of Mrs. Herrick's statement, but said: "Mrs. Herrick's  statement shows an extraordinary  condition of-affairs in our laws and  courts."  He said that the effects of the  fraudulent acts of the. persons involved would be far-reaching... All  the divorce decrees procured by  the bureau through.. its criminal  methods can be set aside. either by  motion of the court which granted  the decree or by application of the  party to the action who had been  imposed upon. In cases of, subsequent marriages.by those who had  used the bureau, the results aro  likely to be, embarrassing. ��� Mr.  Unger said that the case would be'  placed before the grand jury on  Monday, so. that warrants would  be speedily issued. This action is  taken so that extradition papers  (.���an be readily secured for those  who have already escaped and may  subsequently be found in other  states.  A number of divorce cases are  cited where Wilson under different  names gave corroborative testimony  of wrong doing and ic was his frequent appearance iu suchcases and  his being recognized by a court  =stenographer=thatled"to;the-arrestsr  Miss Tompkins declared today that  she had known Zimruer only a few  weeks and had appeared for him in  only two cases. From this it is. inferred that the bureau employed  other women in fooling the courts.  The charges are that- the scheme  was operated thus : An advertisement appeared in the paper-- which  read:  "Divorces quietly; desertion, non-  support, insanity, separation papers, accident, breach of promise.  Consultation free; confidential.  Attorney Maison, 239 Broadway."  It is said that when a patron answered tin advertisement he or sho  was assured   that by agreeing to  is the man that the world iu its  heart counts upon.  There is a singular illustration of  this going on at present in the last  place in the world you would look  for it. That is in international  politics.  'There is a czar of Russia that  honestly loves peace and hates war  ���honestly wants to have people  happy just as much as he wants to  be happy himself; It is his misfor-'c  tune:, to be a czar. If he was a  plain everyday citizen,- as he would  be in a truly civilized age, he could  do good and not have to dodge  Nihilists. But being a czar with a  sincere desire for peace is a hard  job.  For years this czar lias been tlie  subject of= the light-hearted abuse  of the entire press of England and  a large part of the press of Europe  outside of France. They ridiculed  his talk about peace and attacked  his motives. They were always  sure he'/was, up to some deviltry  about it. When he got up the  peace conference ' at The Hague  tlicy ha-haed. Funny idea to talk  .about peace, wasn't it'** . And when  he wanted to withdraw from China-  be fore the soldiers had stolen the  last dollar, there and killed thelast;  Boxer, tho English editors had no  en d of fun abusing him for the suggestion and guessing what dark,  villainous scheme, of conquest he-  had-up his sleeve.  But now the czar is sick. He lias  typhoid fever. Czars, like other  people, can die of typhoid fever.  At the mere suggestion the press of  England breaks out in a sweat. The  idea of the removal of this influence  for peace is so sobering that their  real faith in the.'man comes instantly to the surface They don't want  him to die, they don't want the  howling war lords tliat hold the  center of the stage to have free  rein   to   run    things..

But what  is beautiful to think of is that what  they are saying now is what they,  really believe, and what they said  before they Avoro trying to make  themselves believe to lit schemes  of their own.  All this may not make a great  deal of difference to us, in one way.  We are a long way from any possible European battlefield, and don't  care ��� much about czars, anyway.  But it is instructive to everybody  in another way. Because what is  true about a sincere czar is true  about a sincere man in any other  walk of life.  #  Buy Your Xmas Presents..   early and Avoid the Ptt^h       ~*  ALL  ENGRAVING   DONE FREE  OF  CHARGE.

The first was  solemnized by Rev. Robert Frew,  pastor of St. Paul's Presbyterian  church, at his residence, the contracting pairties being Albert Benson and Miss Mary Syversrudd, both  of Nelson.  The second happy event was the  marriage of Hall Isham of Sandon>  to Elizabeth Conroy. The: bride  arrived in Nelson yesterday from]  Janesville, Wis. Father Cate celebrated the nuptials at the parsonage last-night. Mr. aud Mrs. [sham  leave today for Sandon, where they  will reside.   THE OUTLOOK FOB HOCKEY  Reorganizing Local Chib.  Tlie hockey enthusiasts are commencing to figure on the prospects  for a successful season this winter,  and it is agreed that if the weather  is propitious tlie game will become  more popular than ever l)efore. The  desirability of reorganizing for the  season at once is urged, particularly  in view of the fact that tlie Rossland, Revelstoke and other clubs  are already in line. Last year the  experiment..���������was tried of forming  two independent chilis' but the concensus of opinion seems to-be that  the division of forces and the rivalry naturally engendered did the  game harm. This year it seems  likely that all the local;players will  be marshaled under one banner.  In order to afford all the players an  opportunity to indulge in the pastime two teams will be organized  under the same management, and  described as the first and second  sevens respectively. This -will  make the first team representative  of the city's best hockey talent, and  in games with outside aggregations  all the Nelson players will be .available for selection, whicli can be  =governe(L=solelyJbyJlie^mejiits;j=ofi  the candidates for the team.  Secretary Archibald of the old  Lacrosse-Hockey club has received  a letter from the secretary of the  Revelstoke club asking about games  for the winter, and inquiring as to  the possibility of a league being  formed. It will be remembered  that a hockey league'was organized  last winter, but as Nelson was the  only club to put up the $10 membership fee, the local men are somewhat dubious about the proposition  this year. A meeting is to be  called shortly under the auspices of  the City and Lacrosse-Hockey clubs  when this and the matter of amalgamation will be gone into thoroughly.       ENGINEERS ALMOST BURIED  In a Snowslide.  A party of engineers and surveyors had a narrow escape from a terrible death in a snowslide at Camp  Mansfield. The party included  .Te.an Richard, the Belgian engineer  who is said to represent English  capitalists interested in Camp  Mansfield properties, J. Fred  Ritchie, P. L. S. of Rossland, Charles  Plowman, the promoter, .and .Tolm  P. Miller. Mr. Richard had been  working a small crew of men in the  unfinished tunnel projected to tap  the vein on the Joker claim, but on  the day of the slide was surveying  the vein on the Mona Fraction. ,  With Mr. Ritchie he had set up the  theodolite and Messrs. Plowman  and Miller had gone further up the  canyon, at one side of which the  mountain rises : very precipitously.  Suddenly the snow started to move  and before the party could escape  they were overwhelmed. The slide  did not move far, else all  four would have been killed.  The men at the instrument were only. covered to their  waists and took the matter as a  joke-until startled into a realization of the serious aspect of the  matter by discovering that Plowman and Miller had vanished.  After a brief search a hand was  seen above the slide and a little  work brought Charles Plowman to  the surface little the worse. As  they turned to look for Miller a  groan was heard from the slide and  the trio hurriedly set to work on  the snow bank. Four feet from the  surface they found Miller black in  the face and on the verge of suffocation. Two or three minutes  longer would have settled his case,  ns he could not get air beneath tho  hard-packed snow. In a few .'minutes Miller recovered.  The inspection of the property  by Mr. Richard is said to have been  satisfactory to him, although he is  reticent on the subject and declines  to discuss it in any shape.  SIR CHARLES TUPPER HERE  He Speaks on Saturday.  Sir Charles Tupper, Bart., the  veteran leader of the Conservative  party, arrived in Nelson last night  and is registered at the Hotel  Phair. He is in excellent health  and spirits and full of hope for the  successful outcome of the elections  in Yale-Cariboo and Burrard. The  executive of the Conservative association was notified last night that  sir Charles would come in on the  10:10 train, and the-executive of  the association was well represented at the depot, among those  present being Fred Starkey, Fred  Irvine, W. E. McCandlish,. D. M.  Carley, T. Bennet, F. Forbes, T. P.  Drummond, H. R. Cameron, W. A.  Macdonald, W. McNabb, Chris Morrison, J. E. Amiable, John Elliot  and others.  A cordial welcome was extended  to sir Charles, -who responded  viyacionslyand immediately started  in to find out what the local party  leaders were doing-to accomplish  the success of-candidate^ McKane,.  who.carries the Conservative banner. .In'the few. remarks which the  venerable statesman ^na'de regarding'political matters-in general, he  pointed out that in Nova Scotia the  party had only lost three seats  since dissolution, and drew attention to the contract .for cars let ito  a Nova Scotia firm by Hon. A. C.  Blair whereby the Liberal campaign  fund was enriched to the tune of  $100,000. The Liberals, he said,  Avere ashamed of their victory in  Quebec and sought to cover their  tracks by asserting, that many of  the Quebec members- were English  speaking..Prqtes'tants.ySir Charles  did not consider this' improved' the  situation, as his experience of English Protestants representing Quebec constituencies were more intolerant because of their peculiar position than French members themselves. '���:,������       . yy,-..-.>_  Although sir Charles will be in  the city today, no ceremony of a  pnblie_natiire will_be tendered him,  the distinguished poliftcialTlmvirig*  specially requested that he be permitted to rest, particularly as his  work in the interests of the party  through the Boundary during the  past few days has been of a most  fatiguing nature.    ,'  Hon. N. Clarke Wallace speaks at  Trail tonight, and will arrive here  tomorrow evening. !'>He will be accompanied by Hon. T. Mayne Daly  and candidate McKane, all of whom  will participate iii * the meeting tomorrow night. The executive of  the Conservative association meets  today, and it is possible a meeting  will be arranged for Saturday  afternoon.  Sir Charles Tupper leaves on Sunday for Vancouver, accompanied by  Hon. T. Mayne Daly.  Professor Alexander's Program. .
