 Hi  ���ft  fr-l*  ft ft  8  ft'  '.-J  I  ���*���_*  DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  &i  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  MONDAY HORNING DECEMBER 3  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  I  .%  CHAPLEAU MILL 1W IN OPERATION  An Event Which Is of More Than Ordinary Interest to  This Section of the Province.  _ >t        _ Q '_'������-  OTHER  MINING  MATTERS  IN  AND  AROUND  NELSON  Today marks the commencement  of the producing era in the history  of tlie Chapleau mine. On Satin*-'  day a quantity of-ore was sent  down from the mine on the new  tramway and the mill .'began ensuing. Today it is in full swing and  barring accidents the apparatus  0will run steadily excepting, of  course,-' the stoppages necessary to  adjust the various parts. Prior to  his departure to France last week  F. Mourgues, the company's engineer, put the mill in motion and  satisfied himself that the machinery was working smoothly. Lucien  Weyl, who at present lias exclusive  coutrol of the property, will be ou  tlie ground today and expects before night to cable the company's  head offices in London and Paris  that everything is working smoothly and the mine at last on a producing basis.  The event is of more than ordinary interest in the Nelson district  for various reasons. First the company is foreign and has manifested  creditable enterprise not only in  investing its capital at long range  but in going into a section of the  district where* no other property  was on a producing basis. Tt is  important in the interests of the  mining industry here that such enterprises should be crowned with  success because success in one venture will naturally encourage the  capitalists interested to extend  their field of operations, a sequel  greatly to be desired. - Again, the  Chapleau an assured success' means1  a steady and growing market for.  Nelson as a commercial center. For  these reasons the future "prosperity  of the property will be gratifying  to everyone interested in the. progress of the mining industry, and  this class includes all.  The Chapleau group of claims includes 40 acres of mineral land on  Lemon creek, 1_ miles from' Slocan  City. The property was purchased  from the original owners for $30,000  by the Chapleau syndicate put of  which grew the Chapleau Consolidated Gold Mining Company Limited organised under the British  Companies' Act with" head offices at  London, England and Paris, France,  tihe stockholders being almost exclusively Frenph and. including  xnanynoblernen and distinguished  Parisians. Since taking ijp the  property an aggregate of n $1Q0,P0Q  has been expended in bringing jt to  =it.9"piesent=state=of=developmentr  ���J-lie liaine is located at an altitude  . of Q00Q feet froin the level of the  lake and js a high grade gold and  "silver.proposition. It is estimated  the ore will average not less than  $30 per ton, tho gold values largely  predominating. In the course of  development tin* vein was lost, and  for two months all efforts to   relo-  ���eate'it -by. -drifts, and extensions  proved futile. It is reported that  when Mr.'Mourgues took charge of  tho mino he issued instructions for  the sinking of a winze from the  tunnel and in less than a week the  vein was discovered, the fault hav-  iug arisen through a slide in the  formation.  The Chapleau is Avell developed.  Putside of the underground work,  which is well advanced, the company has followed a comprehensive  rogratti of improvements. The  ujhiings tj-re comfortable and commodious, anjple to accommodate tl\e  e-'pw whiely'-.'ifc is expected to em?  ploy. Then , a wagon; roai| was  Oiult'-Avi.th''-tUe ' assistance of the  government. This road was completed a couple of months ago and  js to be further extended next year  tn reach the Kilo properties upwards of a mile further up strearp.  The stamp mill was then started  and completed a week or ten days  since.  - The mill was supplied by Fraser  & Chalmers of Chicago and is complete and modern in every respect.  It consists of a grlz7.lv, 4x10, made  of taper bars, f-xl by .3 inches, with  H inch spacing bars and four tie  rods. The crusher is a 7x10 Blake  with two ore gates and two automatic feeds of the Challenge type.  B  The battery is of ten stamps, each  weighing 850 pounds,  all  bearing  parts being of steel and the mortars   of   the   Hohiestake   pattern.  The  cams and  cam shafts are arranged   for   Planton    keys.     The  copper   tables   are    ;**($x9G    inches  and  are placed on frames having  a    device   for   altering    the    incline   of   the   plates, . while    the  frames are on rollers and track to  expedite their removal for the replacing of, shoes and dies if necessary.   The" stamps have a capacity  of two and one-half to three tons of  ordinary ore per day.   After passing over the tables and quicksilver  traps the pulp passes into a Brown  hydroraetric sizer where it is graduated aud   the   different   sizes  of  pulp discharged into Frue vanners  where   the   pyrites are   separated  .from the gangue.    The mill is operated by water power obtained from  Lemon creek.  The millsite is a trifle over a mile  below the mine and a tramway was  plauned to deliver the ore. The  contract for the tramway was let  to A. Painter of Nelson and the  work completed under the direction  of Fred E. Beer.  An interesting chapter in the  history of the Chapleau * was  recently enacted. Two distinguished Parisians, the marquis de  Dusmet and viscount de Grammont,  came to Nelson in November empowered to act with the powers of  the entire directorate. Their visit  resulted in a change of management whereby the commercial  direction of the company in British  Columbia was placed in the hands  of G. Lucien R. Weyl whose _ office,  is located on Observatory street  and the mine management vested  in P. Mourgues. The latter is now  in France arranging to move his  family to this city.  The future history of the Chapleau mine will be watched with  keen interest.   Will Be a Good Camp.  On the headwaters of the west  forjc of the Kokanee creek, less than  20 miles from Nelson, is a mineral  section of whicli but little is known  save among prospectors and others  whose attention has been drawn  directly to tlie fact. The' section  was prospected and staked some  years ago and now gives every iq-*-  dication of becoming a prosperoijs  camp. Five groups of ciainis are  located on the west fork of the  Kokanee, the principal one at the  present thi*e being the Lone Dutchman. This property includes three  -clSiTprth^^L^^^nutphmanT^Ifori"^  zontal aiid North Star, the owners  being IJenry Reichart and Thomas  Henderson of Nelson, J. A. Butler  of New Denver and J. Radcliffe of  Slocan Cjty. The ledge is very  large and can be traced for the full  length of the three claims. It is an  iron cap carrying good values iu  gold, copper, silver and nickel.  The owners have done 2500 foet  of work at various points and  report that the showing improves  consistently with depth. For the  amount of work done on adjoining  properties the showing is excellent.  The great drawback to the development of the section is the lack of  transportation facilities. The only  means of access now is a trail from  Slocan City built by Harry Reichart  and other prospectors, but' as the  jirail crosses tlie dVv-de it is not  passable nntil '.July owing to thp  snow. Eventually a trail will be  constructed to connect the new  camp with the Molly Gibson wagon  road, a distance qf five miles. This  will bring the camp within nine  miles of Kootenay lake and be twofold in its benefits, enabling prospectors tq get on the ground in  May instead of July and bringing  grist to Nelson raerch.auts who will  outfit parties going in who have  formerly purchased their supplies  on the Slocan City side of the  divide.    Among the Assayers.  Among tho assayers gathered in  the city for the examination in proficiency under the auspices of the  provincial government is W. A.  Williams, who has charge of the  laboratory   work   at the   Granby  smelter in Grand Forks.     Mr. Williams begrudges the time which the  examination will cause him to lose  from his duties, and is of opinion  that   the diplomas of   recognized  foreign schools of science such as  the Colorado School of Mines, from  which   he   graduated,   should   be  accepted   as   satisfactory   in  this  province, but he  is  thoroughly iu  accord with the principle   of   the  government test and  now that he  is in Nelson is disposed to commend  the idea as one which will not only  afford protection to the profession  but will safeguard prospectors and  mining men  generally against indifferent assaying.    In referring to  smelter matters Mr. Williams says :  ''.'The   Granby is  proving a great  success both from the financial and  metallurgical standpoints;   We are  smelting an average of 600 tons per  day and have put through 750 tons  in 24 hours, which is the record for  the institution.     Next spring the  syndicate contemplates adding two  furnaces   and a converter. to' the  plant and thus materially  increase  the capacity." .  How Turkey Will Pay.  Constantinople, December 2.���  Hassan Pasha, Ottoman minister of  marine and General Williams, representing the Cramp ship building  company of Philadelphia, have  signed a contract for the construe*  tion of a "cruiser - for the Ottoman  navy. The price is to be #350,000  which includes ^623,000 as indemnity to the United States for losses  sustained by the Americans during  the Armenian massacres.  THE CONSERVATIVE RALLY  Bad Wreck on Mexican Central.  San Antonia, Texas, December  2.��� A. terrible wreck, in which-- a  score of persons were killed and  about 00 injured, occurred on the.  Mexican Central railroad on Thursr  day afternoon between Iamanacha  and Symon, 50 miles south of  Jumilico.        "           -  THE FIGHT AT RIETFONTEIN  A    DESPERATE    ATTACK     AND  -- ���- ���    SEVERE "FIGHTING.  General Eoberts on His Way Home  Inspects Historic Majuba and  Laing's Nek.  Bloemkontrin, December 2.���  Further details have been received  regarding the fight near Rietfon:  tein between the British under gen-_  eral Paget and the Boers under  commandants Viljoen and Erasmus,  -November 28 th and 2Pth. Gfeneral.  Paget, toward evening qf the second  day, closed in upon the Boer position with the intention of attacking  next day at dawn, The Boers, however, with reinforceinents, including three guns, made j^lesperate  attack and severe fighting ensued,  The Boers, who were repulsed with  heavy loss, withdrew in a north--  easterly direption. General Paget  having occupied their position sent  mounted infantry in pursuit. The  New Zealanders displayed great  gallantry, having five out* of six  officers wounded.  London, December 3.���No further  details have been received regarding the capture by the Boers of the  British garrison at Dewetsdorp on  November 23rd, but it is said that  general Dewet had seven guns.  Ladvsmitij, Natal, December 2.���  Lord Roberts, who arrived here on  Friday, had inspected Majuba and  Laing's Nex while en route. Replying to an address from tlie  townspeople here, he expressed his  Admiration of the gallant defence  o.f the town, which he character-.  i?ed i\. a -glorious niei**",orial of  British pluck and endurance only  equaled by the determination and  bravery of the relieving force."  Increase of Immorality.  Toronto, December 2. ��� James  Noxon, provincial inspector of  prisons and public charities, says  that immorality and drunkenness  are on the increase among girls and  young women employed in factories  and shops. He attributes it to the  large number of girls coming into  the city from the country and who  are removed from the restraining  influences of home life.  Diaz Takes the Oath.  City  op Mexico, December 1.���  President Diaz today took the oath  as president of the republic for the  next four years.  SIB CHARLES TUPPER MAKES AN  ELOQUENT ADDRESS.  Candidate McKane and Hon.  Clarke  Wallace    Also   Elucidate   the  Principles of the Party,  The Conservatives fired   the big  gun in their campaign at the opera,  house Saturday night, and in   several   respects   the    meeting    was  among the   most notable political  gatherings in the history of Nelson.  First .among the special   features  was the   presence   of   sir   Charles  Tupper, the venerable leader of the  party.    Owing to sir   Charles'   advanced age and the fact that he  had   announced     his     permanent  withdrawal from the active   political arena it is extremely  probable  that his address on Saturday night  will be his last iu British Columbia,  and probably one of the addresses  which will go down , in history as  among the closing appearances in a  political   fight .of   the    venerable  statesman.  Then,Mr. McKane made  his initial appeiafrancebefore a general Nelson audience, and , considerable interest-was manifested in" the"  Rossland gentleman who ...snatched  up the Conservative banner when  the former standard bearer laid   it  down on the eve   of. the   election.  Again hon. Clark Wallace made his  initial bow to'the electors bf Nelson,  affording them an, opportunity- of  'estimating his calibre alongside the"  leader   to   whom  'he   has been   a  sturdy supporter for many   years.  Another feature was the ' presence  of many ladies, allowing the orators  to preface their, addresses with the  conventional opening "Ladies   and  gentlemen" for the first time in the  campaign. -   '*>  The opera house was crowded to  its utmost capacity.and*-the,audi-v  ence was certainly-disposed to back  up the speakers. From start to  finish the interruptions wero only  such as were caused 'by the applause. John Toye occupied the  chair and on the platform were several representatives of the local  Conservative executive cornnjuttee  and party, including .John A. Irving, Fred 'S,tarkey, j. A. Kelly, W.  A. Macdonald, Frank Fletcher, Q.  L. Lennox, D. M. Carley, and John  Elliot. Generally speaking, ]\Ir.  McKane de.vqted his' attention to  his own candidature and local  issues, sir Charles tq the record of  the Conservative party as a natibn-  builder and J>fr." Wallace to the  trade and general policy of the  party.  Candidate McKaue opened' the  speaking and received - a cordial  welcome, though the audience had  not developed the enthusiasm at  thiS'Stage-whieh^was^demoustrated^  as the meeting progressed. The  Conservative candidate made a  good speech. At times he hesitated  but was never lost, and throughout  his address was characterized by a  spirit of manliness which could not  and did not fail to excite admiration. There was no cringing or  playing to anything but the finest  sentiments of the audience. Mr.  McKane spoke as a man holding a  good brief, for which neither  apology nor excuse was needed or  offered. Among his strongest poiiits  iu regard to the local issues involved  were scored at the exppnse of the  Arbitration Act passed by the  Liberal administration, which he  described as replete with "ifs, ands  and mays with no shalls and therefore utterly worthless,'-' and in  attacking an administration which  would tolerate legislation such as  permitted Japanese to vote. Both  points went home, and on concluding Air. McKane was accorded warm  applause.  Sir Charles Tupper followed and  was received with an ovation which  must have impressed -him deeply  despite his familiarity with such  evidences of esteem and respect.  Whether this had any effect or not  oil the venerable statesman, it was  a fact that sir Charles made one of  the greatest speeches ever delivered  from the platform of the opera  house. Prefacing his speech by  pointing out that his withdrawal  from politics placed him on the  same footing as any citizen present,  he proceeded in a masterful manner  to sum up somewhat briefly the record of the Conservatives and to  place it alongside that of the Lib  erals, very greatly to the disadvantage of the latter.   Sir Charles was  in splendid voice and spoke with a  force and vigor altogether astonishing   in  view  of    the   arduous  labors  he   has   undergone  during  the campaign   elsewhere throughout   tho Dominion.   In the course  of his review of Canadian history the  man of eighty years  became the  orator of forty, aud for an hour and  a half was the "Lion of Cumberland"   again.   He   threw out   the  challenge on the start that if he  could not conviuee his hearers of  the justice of the great cause he  presented he would ask no one to  attach siny weight to anything he  might say in the course of the effort.   The close and respectful hearing, punctuated by hearty rounds  of  applause, evidenced the effect  which his arguments carried.    One  of the many noteworthy features of  sir   Charles'   magnificent   address  was his reference to the statement  that   he   had   read   in    Saturday-  morning's issue bf The Tribune of  a   Canadian   official appointed by  the    Liberal   administration   and  resident in Paris, France, had  presented Paul Kruger, late president  of. the Transvaal republic, with a  copy, of   the life of Washington,  expressing regret at the same time  that France had not intervened   to  prevent the British   conquest, and  the hope . that   such   intervention  might still eventuate.   This was.re-  ceiyed with a deep silence which  the. Conservatives   present   would  probably regard as ominous to the  Liberal cause,  Honi Clark Wallace closed with a  strong speech full "of arguments,  facts and figures intended to advance the interests of candidate  McKaue. He is an admirable  speaker and accomplished what few  others would have succeeded in doing, holding the attention of the  majority of the audience from 11  o'clock to within afew minutes "of  midnight.   GERMANY DONT WANT HIM  KRUGER WILL. .PROCEED, DIRECT  TO; HOLLAND;      " '"' S  The Cologne Gazette Thinks"It Wo^lc}  Be a Grave Political Mistake  To Receive Him.  Berlin, December 2.���Mr. Kruger  has abandoned, his proposed visit  to Berlin, qwing to the receipt of  an official intimation that emperor  William regrets that in consequence  of previous arrangements he will  heunable to receive him. The Boer  statesman will, therefore, proceed  direct from Cologne to Holland. He  telegraphed to this effect this afternoon. The Cologne Gazette in an  inspired communication says: "Mr.  =I_ruger!s-visit-=is=not=agreeable=to=  Germany, his plan being, to obtain  intervention in South Africa. It  would be a grave political mistake;  it would be even a great crime to  allow him to even entertain a spark  of hope that Germany will render  him any practical support.*' This  declaration is accompanied with  reproaches, Mr. Kruger being  charged with "having encouraged  a useless guerrilla... warfare ftfid  having disregarded Germany's advice when he might still have followed it."      _____  Pleased in England.  London, December -3.���All the  London morning papers comment  with unbounded enthusiasm upon  thp abrupt snub administered by  emperor William to Mr. Kruger,  which is all the more noticeable  when contrasted witli the Boer  statesman's concededly successful  visit to France. The snub is ver  garded as further evidence of the  better relations existing between  Great Britain and Germany. Emperor William's telegram to the  German minister at Luxemburg was  the outcome of a despatch whieh  Mr. Kruger sent to the Kaiser on  arriving at the German frontier:  "On reaching German soil I hasten  to express to your majesty my sentiments of respectful devotion and  cordial sympathy." The official explanation offered through the German press is that steps had not  been taken to ascertain whether  Mr. Kruger's visit would bo agreeable. The Bper delegates admit  that they have received a serious  check and Mr. Kruger is said to be  extremely   disheartened.  KITCHENER WILL BE AGGBESSIVE  And Tireless in  His Efforts to Capture  Boer Leaders  and Crush the Rebellion.  FORD'S TELEGRAMS TREATING ON VARIOUS SUBJECTS  New York, December 2.���In a  special dispatch dated London, 2 a.  in., Mr. Ford, correspondent of the  New York Tribune, says: ";-'.'"'" ���:  GenerarKitfchener's first bulletin  is business-like. It is dated from  Bloemfontein and opens with a  summary pf Knox's rear-guard action, the pursuit of Dewet and the  attack upon Hertzog. It takes Knox  in touch with Dewet 12 miles north  of Bethulie and confirms the impression that Kitchener will hunt  down the dangerous Boer leader by  relays of mounted men, continually  reinforced and relieved. The capture of Dewet and Steyn is really  the first great stroke he has in  mind, and the same tactics of sending, out' mobile columns of a thousand men and keeping them in motion on the trail of the commandoes  will be adopted. This is indicated  by his account of Paget's fighting  with Viljone and Erasmus and his  comment that Littleton is operating  with the British flying column.  The success of the Boer leaders in  keeping their forces in the field  when they have been cut off from  every base of supplies is explained  by veteran soldiers on the theory  that there are secret storage places  for provisions and ammunition to  which .they return from time to  time.  General Dewet's fresh exploit excites admiration here, since Englishmen admire pluck in even- an  enemy and they have a true sense"  of fair play. . They- welcome lord"  Kitchener's- sviecession to-the chief,  command," because they consider  lord Roberts is too magnanimous a  general to deal with guerrilla bands,  and are convinced of the necessity  of some change in the taotics. Lord  Kitchener is understood to favor  the organization of a considerable  number of mobile columns of  mounted men ranging from f��00 to  100,0 strong for running down  Dewet and other Boer generals.  This plan of- operation does not  differ materially from lord Roberts'  recent tactics except in a single  point ���- reduced strength of the  columns and exclusive.employment  of mounted men. The infantry  battalion will be mainly used in  guarding towns , and lines of  column.  Full justice will be done to lord  Roberts on his return to England.  General Buller is already honored  with hero worship. There is an  eVidelTt"^etWminlStioii---=in official*"  and military circles to justify everybody who has been fighting on the  English side in South Africa. The  graveyard of military reputations  has been closed and padlocked.  Lord Wolseley leaves headquarters  with an elaborate tribute from  every journal on his military  career and receives tonight the  honor of a farewell banquet from  his colleagues of the war office and  the Junior Constitutional club. He  deserves every tribute of respect,  yet there is a grim irony in the retirement of a once lauded reformer  at the close of a year when military  experts themselves being witnesses,  the inefficiency of tho entire system  of training and tactics in the  British army has been demonstrated. '  Reception of Canadians.  Referring to the reception bf the  Canadian troops Mr. Ford says:  "The Canadian troops wore heartily  cheered on their march through tho  embankment yesterday. They disported themselves like tourists at  tlie tower, but regained their military form when marshaled in the  Egyptian hall, and tlie Mansion  House for inspection by the lord  mayor. Lieutenant colonel Buchanan made a soldierly speech in  which ho oxpressed the satisfaction  of the Canadian troops in having  fought side by side with the British regulars and Australians for the  salvation of the army. Compliments were exchanged at the Guildhall and St. Paul. The evening  was spent at Kensington barracks  and the bulk of the contingent will  attend   service     in    Westminster  '-._ I  -VI  "*--*; i  ' abbey.      The   Canadians   are   the  guests of the nation   during " their  stay   in   London   and   are   made  thoroughly   comfortable    through   -.  constant thoughtfulness of the duke   ���.  of Abercorn's committee,  The Chinese Situation.  Mr. Ford says in reference to the  peace of Europe and the settlement    *  of the Chinese question:   December -'  opens with better omens for the -  maintenance   of   European    peace  and the industrial seeurity of the  world.   Not only has Mr. Kruger's ,.  mission to Paris proved  a  failure,   * '  but   the   French people, as   their   -.  most   censorious   critics   here   are     ���  constrained to admit, have acted in   ���'  perfect form aud with sobriety bf  judgment, abstaining from any de-'  liberate affront to   England.    Mr.^ :'  Kruger's journey to Berlin is re-'~*  garded  with indifference,  because  the Germans will be certain to take  their cue from their emperor.  Discussing developments in  the  Chinese embroglio,  Mr. Ford, says:  The czar is reported out of danger  from typhoid fever,  and  although*  his    convalescence    may    be    protracted,   there   is  little, reason to'  dread   a   change   of rulers   which'-  might be a serious menace to peace  in China. A settlement is approach-,  ing slowly, but surely.    The powers  are not following  tho lead of theyrH,"jj  ..-Til  - .'-SSI  ��t_x L  1      -  51  ^���fft.*- ���*>*"���  y,cq  - ?A-l  __   ���<���*;  .   il  German emperor and the wily empress is slowly wearing out their  patience.   ��� -��� . '   V  "Cynical commentators oii events ;-  already-foresee"the virtual triumph-,'  .of Chinar*rover -Europe.

The  return  of   the,  empress  to * Pekin after   arrangements have been made for the pay----  ment   of a nominal indemnity is'-  regarded here, as a necessity of the  situation and a foregone conclusion.  If justice  be  sacrificed  to  expediency yand the empress be allowed  to score   the   main  points  in  the*  game,".the English will console them- -  selves with the reflection that they  are not responsible for the practical  collapse of the concert of   retaliation and .vengeance, since they have  an awkward war on their hands  in  South Africa and are forced to consider the plain facts of the case. .  There are some singular com- .  ments in today's Spectator on the  trend' of affairs in China. The  action of the American government  in-^favor'-'oi���mild���sentences_andar  moderate indemnity is considered a  decisive factor in the problem.  Russian support on lenient measures is recognized, with the certainty that the government will  rivet her grip ou Manchuria. France  and Japan are expected to throw  their weight on the same scale, and  only Germany and Great Britain  remain as strenuous advocates of  co-action and reprisals. The question is raised whether tho German  emperor, who has been suspected  of having a strong desire to acquire  possessions in China, will quietly  endure the failure of his hopes.  The Spectator seems to anticipate  that he will fall back upon Gei-  many's direct claim for an enormous  indemnity for the murder of her  minister in Pekin and seize tho  province of Slum Tung as a  material guarantee that his demands will bo complied with.  He will consult England, as he is  pledged to do by the dual agreement, but will probably reject her  advice and retain Shari Tung, which  is rich in minerals and will enable  him to meet all expenses of the  campaign in China, and no great  power will make war upon him.  This cynical view of the probability  in China is expressed by the in<_st  optimistic English journal, and it  fully justifies the American distrust  of tho German emperor's ulterior  purposes and the Washington government's suspicion that the European concert is a reed shaken by the  wind. Tho occupation of Shan  Tung would be a sorry sequel to au  Anglo-German agreement based  upon the integrity of China and the  freedom of commerce.  y>��J  AC..  y*sH  '-$,1  ��� i 7!V  HE TRIBUNE:  NELSON B.

This is probably a  fair comparison of prices on hundreds of .articles that aro required  in the households of Nelson, and  which are purchased in Toronto by  too many-people who imagine they  are making a saving.  Evert newspaper in the mining  districts of the province contains  notices that go to" show that the  amendment' to the Mineral Act  allowing the advertising-out of  delinquent co-owners is working  satisfactorily. This was a piece of  "legislation-that- required twelve-  years to bring about, the first newspaper published in Kootenay advocating it in 1888. It took almost  as long' to bring about legislation  abolishing the five-dollar tax on  men working in mines.  The smelting of ores mined in  British Columbia is doing much to  upbuild the following towns,  namely, Nelson, Trail, and Grand  Forks."'When the smelters now  under way at Greenwood and  Boundary , Falls are in operation  these towns will feel the good  effects. Yet there are people in  British Columbia who believe the  mining industry would be hampered if all the ores mined in the  province were smelted in the  province.-"  "   Two ladies living   in   the   East  ward   are   wont   to   spend   their  leisure time in knitting slippers for  tlie members   of   their -respective  households.'   One sent to   Timothy  Eaton's store in   Toronto for  the  Holes for her slippers,  a,s   she said  the prices in Nelson were too high'.'  The other does not  buy   anything  outside of the town, and purchased  tlie soles for her slippers  from  the  Neelands Shoe Company.    The lady  who sent to Toronto paid 30 cents a  pair for one size and 20 cents a pair  for another   size,   besides   express^  charges.   The lady who patronized  The advent of politicians from  the East has not been .altogether  a blessing. They have brought  with them the prejudices that exist  in the communities in which they  live, and which are npn:exis.tant in  British Columbia. Here there are  no prejudices as to race and religion. The native of Quebec who  speaks French lives on neighborly  terms with the native of Ontario  who speaks English. The men from  Glengarry who were born Catho-  . lies work alongside the men   from  Bruce who were born Presbyterians. Enmities between neighbors  can be raised re.adily enough without introducing racial and religious  cries.  Sm Charles Tupper is fairly entitled to be called the Grand Old  Man of Canada. Over eighty years  of age, he is as bright mentally as  at any time during the forty-five  years that he has been at tlie front  in political strife. While in Nelson  ho passed one night in attendance  at a Scotch dinner, and the next  night was for hours on a platform  in a public hall listening to and  making speeches. There is one  thing that the average Canadian  likes, that is, pluck, and  when pluck is coupled with  brains, the man that has both com-.  mands respect. Sir Charles Tupper  left Nelson with the respect of  m.any young men who heard him  last night, young men who were  reared in the Liberal faith.  The Vancouver News-Advertiser  says that provincial mineralogist  Robertson is a careful and conscientious official., The provincial  mineralogist may be lipth^ca.refu]  and conscientious, and yet believe  that there is no mineral in British  Columbia. What the. people want  is a mineralogist that lias faith in  the   country.   One that when lie  Visits, a new district will say some;  thing; encouraging, rather than  something, discouraging, to. the men  who are trying to develop it, often  under great disadvantages and  hardships. There are enough  "knockers" and pessimists in every  mining camp now without adding  to the number the men paid by the  province to investigate thoroughly  before making reports either for or  against a camp or district. What,  is.wanted i.-i a provincial mineralogist' that is careful and conscientious and hopeful, and, above all,  one who lias sense to keep his mouth  shut when the showings are not  altogether to his liking.  .Shipments to the Trail Smelter.

(The Tkiiiuni* has placed a part of one column  at the disposal of the Conservatives, whoso .views  will bo expressed therein from time to time during the campaign. Alike privilosro is accorded  the Labor party and the Liberals.'  The Galliher committee has apparently decided   to draw  public  attention from now on to the- excellence of the present government  iu general'and of Clifford Sifton in  particular.    With th.at end in view  it has induced colonel Topping- of  T*ail to air his views in print and  -J^on Friday morning we were regaled  with   a   somewhat, lengthy letter  from J. B. McArthur of llossland,  wherein he labors to show that the  member for Brandon is  all right,  that he knows our wants���in fact  .always   has   but they have  been  overlooked in the pressure of business and it won't occur again, etc  If we mistake not, J. B. McArthur  was once upon a time a resident of  the   prairie   capital   but left that  city for fresh fields and pastures  new after certain compromising developments had , taken place over  the Northern  Pacific  railway agitation.    History  records  that his  personality did not on that occasion  inspire any great excitement among  the electorate, any more than it does  today. "   '  What will strike most thinking  people is the delightful presumption of these prairie Siftons, Olivers  and others; they come among us  loaded with a paternalism that is  immense and proceed to enlighten  us how to run a mining country;  whereas, the best people here, are  beginning to find after some years  ���j-, ,- of experience that this mining busily, noss is considerably more complicated and difficult than growing  No. I. Fife or raising shorthorns.  Mr. McArthur. seems .to have been  carriedaway bySiftonianpromises,  there is a gleeful, childlike trust  running through his letter, ending  in a thanksgiving that we h.avo  such "a young, able and vigorous  'minister as Mr. Sifton."*.* The mining journal, in faondon and the appointment or. a geological- expert  may be good moves, albeit, it is  ���open to discussion whether foreign  mining investors would bank very  lavgelyon what a minister might  say of a certain property, not to  mention tlie temptation to give undue prominence to their own properties or those of their friends,  should they have any they, wanted  to unload.  But when  it   comes to eommis-  I*    sions w�� |UaJ wel�� he spared.    The  present    government    is   nothing  ',    without   a   few   of    these   handy  screens; iu fact they are even now  talking of resuming the Washing-  *    ton "commission," which means a  1 -joIlyLgood time^at the-capital^and.  not   forgetting   a  the Canadian pub--  I''  i*  K  barren results,  good fat bill for  lie to foot.  The presence in our midst of the  Conservative chieftain will give all  an opportunity of hearing a clean-  cut statement of the present political situation, after which the literary contributions of colonel Top-  'ping and J. B. McArthur will be  consigned to the graveyard of useless campaign twaddle.  WRITTEN   BY   LABORERS.  Tin* Tiiiiiun'k has placed a part of ono column  at tho disposal of tlio Independent Laborers,  whose views will bo oxprcssod therein from  time to lime during the campaign. A like privilege is accorded the Conservatives and the  Liberals.  The grand old Canadian veteran  statesman, sir Charles Tupper, received a most cordial reception at  the opera house on Saturday evening to which his long experience  and constant attention to the requirements of the country justly  entitled him. After 45 years of  arduous legislation in the interests  of Canada everyone will .wish with  all sincerity tliat he will: enjoy tlie  repose which his advanced age and  indefatigable public duties have"  rendered necessary.  In his speech lie clearly proved  that the Conservatives, who originated the national policy, had.  consistently striven for the pub-  lie benefit, .had given the people their great national highways,  had promoted manufactures, had  fostered and encouraged home, and.  foreign trade and had laid the foundations for the progress, and development of our future great Dominion. Then With the most powerful  arguments and scathing denouncia-  Ia now prepared to-issue Drafts-and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  tions he accused the Liberals of obtaining power in a most   treacherous manner,   by   means   of   lying  promises which   have   never   been  fulfilled.     He. showed   that   their  "Free Trade" pretended policy had  resulted in their retaining the Conservative tariff? and instead of following out their war cry of "Economy" had considerably augmented  the national expenditure and  were  now simply trading, upon   the late  yeavsiof prosperity which were   a  national boon   and   entirely   independent of .any Liberal operations.  Sir Charles then, with his sphyux  like   countenance,   beaming    with  legislative   philanthropy   and   his  whole   aspect   gleaming with   po*  itical effulgence,  began to Hatter  and sop the workingmen of British  Columbia.    He spoke of the necessity of having a  keen intelligent  man to represent them in the house;  one who was thoroughly conversant  with   the   mining    interests;    one  whose knowledge of men and matters   would   entitle   him   to   the  cordial     respect   of    the    house;  one       whose        integrity       and  actions were   unimpeachable ;   one  who was determined to uphold the-  just and rightful interests of labor,  and when he had  worked up the  enthusiasm   of   his audience, who  held their, breaths in the full expectation of hearing him pronounce  the name of   Chris   Foley as  the  rightful exponent of their requirements, to their utter astonishment  and dismay he uttered the name of  John McKane as  in duty bound,  although his eulogiums and pointed  remarks could only by any possibility, have referred  to the Labor  candidate.  The Labor party have a clear  conception of the inside workings  of our glorious constitution. They  know that sti-tesmen actuated by  the purest motives have been compelled to pander to the political  harpies who fatten upon the boodle  .that is wrested from labor and  theyare. also painfully aware that,  this debasing system is common to  the two great parties.
