 y,*-.-*,-?-.?!  DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  -,/.  EIGHTH YEAB.  NELSON:  FRIDAY   MORNING DECEMBER 7  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  11 INDUSTRIES OF NELSON  The  Monument   Group,   a   Dry  Ore   Silver   Property,  0.  Likely  to  Change Hands.  PNEUMATIC GATES FOR THE LE ROI AND OTHER MATTERS  The Monument group on   the divide between Six-mile and  Lemon  creeks  is  likely  to   change  hands  next spring- and the  merit of  Lhe  property is so well known  that  its  future history will be '.'watched with  keen interest.    It is a:dry ore silver  proposition and  but for the location, which is comparatively difficult of access,  would  undoubtedly  have been  developed  considerably  before this.   The Monument group  comprises three claims,  the Monument   No.  2  and   No. '������"' and   the  'Monument'Fraction,   it was staked  in   .Tuly, .1890,   by   Joe  Duhamel,  Steve Hawkins  aud  Louis  Strand,  who still retain their intorest.    On  the following day Sloean Gity parties located the Railroad  group  on  the same vein.   Two ledges parallel  each other across  the  claims,  the  principal averaging  If)  feet  wide.  Assays of the ore run  from   .0  to  ls��00 ounces, and an average of nine  assays was I'M ounces.   The property was bonded at one time to  H.  E. Croasdaile at $90,000 and at  another stage to M..S. Davys. Neither  of the deals went through and it is  expected that new parties will take  a bond next spring on the same.  Pneumatic Ore Gates.  A set of pneumatic ore  gates are  being manufactured at 1$.  G.  Rib-  ��� ".let's"  foundry  on  Front street  for  ".4the 1.6 Roi mine at Rossland. The  gates are used in discharging ore  into cars, their strong point being  that as a lever releases the com-,  pressed air necessary to open or  'close the���gates without- manual  labor, a much Larger gate can be  ., employed than would be the case  under the old system when tlie  miners had toJiaudle tho gates by  sheer strength. The tramway for  the Tamarac mine at Ymir is well  under way and will be shipped  shortly.   It should be in operation  ~t>y the 1st of Janiiairy next. Mr.  Riblet returned yesterday from  Grand Forks, where he was called  in consultation with the management of the Granby smelter. The  latter are going into the matter of  extending their plant, the proposed  additions being in the shape of an  extra furnace and a converter.  Some additions to the power plant  would be necessary to furnish  power for both, although enough is  generated at the present time to  operate either one. The additional  hydraulic plant, however, would  only  reciuirejthe^in.stallation^of a  few extra wheels.  The Glad Hand Looks Well.  James Hickey came in yesterday  from the Glad Hand group on the  east fork of Cottonwood creek  where he has been working for the  past month with a partner. The  property is just across the creek  from the Robin Hood now under  boud to Vancouver parties, and  Hickey has,done considerable work  on it. When staked the Glad Hand  showed a narrow showing on the  surface carrying gold, silver and  lead.' A 25"foot shaft has been  sunk and 25 feet of tunneling done,  and the vein has widened out to 21  feet of pay ore in the shaft, while  the appearance of the rock indicates  that the. lead is going out and  giving placo to gold and silver  values only. Later the owners will  drive a tunnel from a point 200  feet lower down the hill and tap  the lead. This will enable them to  block out ore and place their property, on a much bette'r basis than  the ordinary prospect. Hickey  states tliat work is being carried on  steadily at the Robin Hood and  that the showing is reported to be  improving constantly.  Developing the New Lead  . Charles Dundee of Rossland was  in the city yesterday. He is one of  the largest owners of Dundee stock  cind states that the property is in  good shape. A small crew of men  is at work on the Dundee group doing development on the vein which  was disclosed after the forest fires  last summer swept the ground clear  of timber and brush.    The ledge  averages .12 feet and has a good  paystreak of clean shipping ore.  The tunnel" on this vein was in 176  feet on Sunday last and gives  every indication of becoming one  of the company's most valuable assets. The deal for the transfer of  the Dundee to English capitalists is  on the verge of completion and  would have been closed on the first  of the month had hot the illness of  one of the parties delayed tho negotiations.  Excellent Shipping Facilities.  McBeath ��fc Peters have brought  down their plant from Crawford  Ray after finishing the work on the  wagon road. The companies operating along the creek, the London  Consolidated" and Richelieu being  the principal corporation at present, now have exceptionally good  shipping facilities. The road is  substantially constructed and has  au easy grade. At the,lake front a  wharf has been built to which the  craft of greatest draught can tie  without trouble at extreme low  water. The ore which McVeigh  Brothers have contracted to team  should begin moving shortly and  the Silver Hill will then enter the  producing list.  and prince Ching and Li Hung  Chang are awaiting a more satisfactory edict. The impression is  growing among men of all nationalities that peace is impossible;  tliat a resumption of the campaign  is inevitable, and that partition  will be the only solution. Two  American missionaries complain  that the Germans, at Cho Chan loot  converts equally with other  Chinese. '  __^  Important Improvements.  ', Washington, December 0.���The  war department today sent to congress reports on a number of important river and harbor projects,  ^including that for connecting the  Mississippi river with Lake Michigan by means of the Illinois river  and the Chicago sanitary canal, and  also for the extensive improvement  of the Saul t S te. Marie river, con -  necting Lake Superior and Lake  Huron. The total cost of the project for connecting Lake Michigan  and the Mississippi river is placed  at $7,317,977 for a seven foot depth  or $8,653,270'.'for 'an.'.'eight foot  depth.

Another tunnel has been started  on the Venus. This will be the  fifth tunnel and its effect will be to  block out .an immense tonnage tf  ore. No. 1. tunnel was driven on  the lead for a sufficient distance to  prove tlie vein in place and stronger  than in any of the preceding workings. No. 5 was commenced another 100.. feet,Jower on the vein,  aud when this and the other items  on the program for the winter's  work are completed, the Venus will  have ore in sight representing several hundred thousand dollars.  At the Republic.  .Toe Duhamel, one of the owners  of the Republic claim on Forty-  nine creek and the working member  of the firm, was in the city yesterday. He is anxious to see  the deal recently recorded go  through and stated his intention  yesterday of seeing the parties interested and arranging an amicable  settlement whereby the bond could  be proceeded on without further  bickering. Duhamel is working  steadily on the Republic in which  he believes implicitly. On discovering the lead some months ago he  started a tunnel, which is now in 05  feet.    The quality of the preylas^  changed, from a decomposed to hard  quartz and the showing impr  oves  in appearance with every shot.  TORONTO   STOCK   EXCHANOE.

Colony, December 0.���Abqut_ six', thousand  Dutch assembled in the open air at  the gum tree plantation on'the edge  of the town to take part in au Afrikander congress. Horsemen from a  radius of sixty miles had been riding in all night. ' Mr. 8.' C. Cron-  wright made a speech in which he  attacked sir -Alfred Milner, the  British high commissioner and gov-,  ernor of Cape Colony, saying there  would be no peace while he was  governor. A number of violent  speeches, the speakers, however,  repudiating all idea of rebellion and keeping within stricter  limits than had been anticipated.  Three resolutions were carried by  acclamation and a delegation appointed to submit them to sir Alfred Milner. The first resolution  demands the termination of the  war, with its untold misery, and pro*  ���tests against the devastation of the  country and the burning of farms,  Which "will leave a lasting heritage  of bitterness" and declares that the  independence of the republics will  alone insure peace in  South Africa.

They took one  prisoner, who stated that Dewet  was suffering from continual trekking and had abandoned a Krupp  gun near the south bank of tlio  Caledonia river. The prisoner also  asserted that the British prisoners  captured at Dewetsdorp had been  liberated, with the exception of the  officer."-.   Czar Steadily Improving.  Livadia, December fl.���The czar  now leaves his bed each day and  spends au hour or two in an armchair. In sleep and appetite he is  steadily improving, though he is  still limited to a liquid diet. It is  probable that tho; bulletins will be  discontinued . next Sunday. The  czarina is much thinner, but her  general health is excellent.  Emperor Gets Funny.  Bnrmn, December 0.���Emperor  William, adopting the role of a  practical joker, has just sent count  von Buelow a large package containing one hundred pounds of  soap with which to clean the chancellor's palace, the count having  complained that the countess was |  afraid of a grand cleaning.  London;   December    0.���A   few  minutes after the speaker had taken  his chair in the house of commons  this afternoon, the  lord  chancellor  read the queen's speech as  follows:  "My Lords and  Gentlemen:     ft  has become necessary to make further provision for the expenses incurred by the   operations   of my  armies in South Africa and China.  I have summoned you  to hold a  special session  in  order that you  may give your sanction  to cthe enactments required for the purpose.  You will not enter into other public matters requiring your attention  until the ordinary meeting of parliament in the spring."  In view of the debaile on the address in reply to the queen's speech,  a large number of peeresses and  diplomats gathered in the galleries  of the house of lords. The earl-of  Latham moved the .address. He  thought it could now be safely said  that the end of the war was in  sight. The volunteers had made  their mark and the colonies had  shown that they were united to  the mother country never to be  separated.  Lord Kimberley, the Liberal  leader in the house of lords, adverted strongly to the sudden dissolution of parliament and to the  imputation on the Liberals during  the election. He objected to the  brevity and abruptness of the  queen's speech and demanded a definite pronouncement of the government's policy in view of the novel  and dangerous character, of the  recrudescence of hostilities iri  South Africa aiid explanations of  the alleged cruelties to the Boers,  the burning of farm houses and  similar acts. lie concurred in the  annexation of the republics, but  trusted the government possessed a  definite policy for speedily concluding the war. His lordship was  gratified at the Anglo-German  agreement, but he said an attempt  to capture the emperor and the  dowager empress of China would  be an alarming undertaking.  Lord Salisbury paid a tribute to  the skill of lord Roberts and general Kitchener and to the bravery  of the officers and men. In South  Africa, the premier said, Trans-  vaalers, Free Staters and the world  should understand there could be  no deviation from the policy of the  government as already outlined.  Anything resembling independence  never could be granted. The war  must proceed-to the-inevitable-  issue. We must let it be felt that  no one by the issue of au insolent  and audacious ultimatum could  force the British government to  humble itself aud abandon its  rights. He could never allow that  a scheme of independence should  be left. How soon the Free Staters  and the Transvaalers would have  anything like self-government  powers depended upon themselves.  It might be years and it might be  generations. Speaking of China,  Lord Salisbury said he was unable to revealanything, as it would  be betraying governmental secrets.  He was happy, however, to be able  to quiet the fears of lord Kimberley regarding the pursuit of the  emperor and the empress. He had  never heard of such a suggestion.  The concert existed and the latest  intelligence showed that it possessed a very reasonable validity.  He was more doubtful of the time  when a satisfactoiy reside would  be achieved than of the fact that  the concert of Europe would be  successful.  The feature of the -session was  lord Rosebory's spirited attack on  tho government. He was unsparing  nt his criticism of the dissolution of  parliament, the conduct of the war,  the policy of the government towards China, and everything  handled by the cabinet, congratulating lord Salisbury on being the  chief of a family numbering so  many capable administrators, the  reference being to the inclusion in  the cabinet of so many of lord Salisbury's relatives.  Lord Rosebery's comment on the  I charges against Joseph Chambor-  -���'-'Tw*"  lain, the secretary of state for the y  colonies, was severe. He did not '*-"���  believe in the credibility of all the /;���  charges, but it was evident the;;,'*;  cabinet had failed in a proper snper-jVvs  vision and the pride of England iri^-Ai  the purity of its public men had -*;-;���  suffered.

It was *".'->  nearly 11 o'clock' before he rose to-.' ;*:  reply to the avalanche of attacks- -?'?  launched agaiust him. How great, ,y  a strain* he ��� had undergone was. *\  evident in the scarcely suppressed  excitement of tone on' the-  part of one rarely known to  show feeling in the house. He de-"  nied that he had ever accused Mr.  Ellis of being a traitor. He denied -  also that he had decried any acc'u-  satious against his own personal integrity. He declared that the  special purpose of the meeting of  parliament-had���boen-forgotten-in-  the attacks upon him. r  The duke, of Devonshire replied  to lord Rosebery and lord .Tweed-  mouth closed the debate for the  Liberals. The address was tlien  agreed to and the house of lords  adjourned until Monday.  Si  To Pay Taxes for Japanese.  Vancouvkh, December fl.���The  British Columbia law making any  one employing Japanese responsible  for their taxes has been sustained.  Last season 0000 Japanese were engaged in fishing on the Fraser river.  The salmon ennners employed theiu  for the purpose of breaking the  strike of the white fishermen. When  the tax collector made his rounds,  however, the Japanese had disappeared. The government at once  demanded of the canuers $3 a head  taxes on all Japanese employed. A  test case before magistrate Anderson has resulted in the magistrate  ordering paymont by the canneries  concerned of the taxes of every Japanese who naught fish at any time  during the season for these canneries. The legislation making sueh a  verdict possible was passed at the  .suggestion of labor unions here.  Germans Get Demonstrative.

Only 223 men in Rossland could  muster up courage to vote for ,-t  great political party whose candidate happened to be a Nelsoii man.  Yet Rossland polled 1050 votes.  How different at Nelson. Five  hundred of the. 850 votes polled  were cast for candidates who live  in Rossland. Rut Nelson has the  satisfaction,of not only being free  I'rom local prejudices, but having a  citizen who is elected to represent  Kootenay in tho parliament of  Canada for the next five years.  While the returns are as yet incomplete,, the indications are  that  candidate Galliher of Nelson,   Liberal; has  carried the constituency  of  Yale-Cariboo by- 200 plurality;  over candidate Foley and 500- over,  candidate McKane.    The total vote-  will be in the neighbqrh.ood of 8500, j  or 3000.less than was polled at the  provincial   election    in   June  last.  Mr. Galliher was elected because he  was the candidate of the party that  is in power at Ottawa.    That fact-  influenced more than .200 votes.of  the 8500 polled.   The Conservatives  had an   uphill  fight, not only in.  making a contest. against a victorious party,-but in making a contest  with a candidate,   who   had., bub  three weeks in which to canvass a,  constituency  that  could   not   be i  covered in three months. Candidate McKane ��� need not be ashamed  of the support he received,;and the  Conservative party need not be  ashamed of having supported John  McKane. The. Labor... men proved  that they, can carry any riding in  Kootenay, with probably the exception of the Golden riding of East  Kootenay, in a three-cornered contest. In a party-line fight for the  provincial legislature, Labor candidates would carry Rossland, Slocan,  and,the Fort Steele riding* of East  Kootenay hands down, and would  have an, equal break in both Nelson  and Revelstoke ridings. When  Boundary district is given representation, they will carry that riding. These are not .mere surmises,  but the figures of the election of  yesterday,  prove    it.     Candidate  Foley made a splendid fight, and.  Chris Foley will be a factor in  Rossland politics as long as he  chooses, to engage in politics, fie is  a man that laboring men will rally  around, not only because he is  one of themselves, but because with  a little .more experience he,will not  have an equal in Southeastern  Kootenay as a platform speaker.  Chris Foley will be in Rossland  what Ralph Smith is in Nanaimo.  When men without organization or  money can come as near winning a  contest a*- the Labor men have in  Vale-Cariboo they cannot bo ignored by. party-line men. Tho present contest is over, but the groundwork has,been laid for future contests, the result of, which will mean  much, not only to Kootenay, but to  the province of,British Columbia.  Chris Foley carried  the incorporated   cities,   as   the, following  figures go to show: He polled 1385  votes, Galliher polled 1370, and McKane  polled   12-3.   Thr Triblt-vi"*  some time agP estimated., that, the  incorporated.cities would  poll,4000  votes of the total vote east, and the  ballots actually total 4.00..-  Not a  bad  guess.   The  guess as to how  the .vote would go was. not quite so  good.    It was.:   Galliher,��� 150.0,. McKane 1350, Foley 1150..  Unknown M��n-.KiiledL,  BUTTE, Montana. December-. 0.-���  ,/\ serious wreck occurred   on   the  Northern Pacific at Rocker, three  miles west of Butte, at 11:30 p. m.  yesterday, in which two unknown  men lost their lives. Eastbound  passenger train No. 2,'with eight  heavily loaded car.-', jumped" the-  rails at Rocker switch, tlie locomotive, two baggage cars' and one express car being demolished and left  crosswise on the track. One passenger coach also left the rails, but  was not overturned. Engineer  Nath Kellam was badly injured.  Fireman Ole Johnson was cut.  about the head and had his back  wrenched. Singularly, not a passenger was injured beyond a severe  shaking up. The two men killed  were beating their way on the  blind baggage. Tlie cause of the  accident is unknown. Engineer  Kellam claims that the switch was  properly set.  Want Cramps' Shipyard.  New Yomc,. December 0.���The  Evening Post says:  According to a report that  reachedWall street today, Viekers'  Sons ��fc Maxim, Limited, of London,  England, have instituted negotiations for the purchase of the Mid-  vale Steel Works and the Cramps  Ship Building Company of Philadelphia. It is believed to be the  purpose of the English company to.  secure a share of. the United States  government contracts for warships,  armor plate aud ordnance. The  report has it tliat $5,700,000 has already been offered for the Mid vale  company, and that the Cramps purchase will probably be partly effeet-  .ed by.issuing stock of the new corporation to be formed when the  ��� deal has been completed. -  ; It is said that final arrangements  for the deal are to be attempted  next week in this city, when Charles.  IT. Cramps will come here to meet'  a New York banker, who will represent the English company. ���  Regarding the efforts- made to  secure the Cramps' -shipyard one  man, who is well informed in steel  matters, said :  "More than a year ago John-  Crossley, manager of* Viekers' Sons  & Maxim, came to America to purchase the Cramps' shipyard. At  that time it .was understood that  the negotiations fell through. Beginning these negotiations a second  time means probably that a purchase has been, made. Viekers'  Sous & Maxim are the giants of the  business���the Krupps of England���  ���and have unlimited capital. They  can afford to buy. Cramps and the  Mid vale outright, if they care to,  but more likely it is to be, a stock  purchase. That the English concern will complete the purchase I  do not doubt."  .Henry Seligman, of the firm of J.  & W. Seligman & Co. and a director iu the Cramp Shipyard Company, saidno sale of the property  has been made, but added : "There  is something in the air. That is all  I have to say at this time."

The  seal life in 1899 is reported-.to. be, 20.  per cent less,than in  1898, which,is  attributed to the effect of pelagic  sealing.

Army and ji  minister.  In 1804 his father lived in the  southeastern part of Oklahoma,  bordering, on Texas, lie was one  of a -haurlful- of-.hardy. Americans  who formed a small-settlement on  the site of what is now Gainesville,  lu the spring of the year the  Kiowa Indians, who were aggressive  and skilful in war, made a raid on  the settlement, and killed..all the-  whites except a few whom they  took as captives. Mrs. Griflis fell  in the conflict, but the old Kiowa  warriors even to this day remember  that she defended her life and that  of her sonwith fierce courage, and  killed two redskins before she was  fatally wounded. Mr. Griflis was  away that day and when he re-  ������wrned ho found the body of his  wife, viewed the. scene of carnage  and guessed that his two-year-old  sou, Joseph, had,been stolen. Inspired by the terrible blow that  had been dealt him, he fought the  Indians until he was killed.  .Toseph, the present Dr. Griflis,  was taken into the family of Big  Bow, the war chief of the - Kiowas,  and brought up.- tenderly by the  wife of-the chief. He roamed about  the country with the Kiowas,  learned their language, loved Big  Bow and Mrs. Big Bow as mother  and father.  When he was ten years old. the  small band of Indians with whicli  he was traveling with was captured  by a company of American infantry.  One day a soldier took particular  notice of the white boy and observed a vaccination mark on his  arm. The commanding.officei* went  to Big Bow and asked him to tell  him the history of the boy prisoners. Big Bow at first denied that  the prisoner was a white man's son,  but subsequently confessed that he  was and told the full story of his  capture: =     =  The boy did not believe it until  Big Bow had assured, him time and  time again of its truth. The commanding officer took him in charge  and, with the aid of Big Bow, got  in communication witli an uncle  who lived in Texas. Thus at the  age of ten years Griflis was sent  into Texas and placed in the charge  of his uncle.  Life in civilization was irksome  to the boy. He longed to be back  to the. roving, venturesome life. So,  after spending a short time with  his uncle, he departed secretly to  join the Indians. He journeyed for  days over prairie and mountains,  and at length fell iu with straggling  Utes, Oheyeunes and Kiowas. For  six or seven jreai*s he lived a nomadic life.  In 1880 he enlisted in Company  K, Sixteenth Infantry, and did  scout duty for some time. His  superb horseback riding attracted  the attention of captain Crews, of  the Fourth-cavalry.   ,  The Fourth went out in -1881 to  quell aii uprising of the Cheyennes,  and the boy ;scout went with it.  The captain told young Griflis,  after the performance of a daring  feat, that he would: make him a  present of a good horse as, a reward  for his excellent service. The word  was never, kept,, and. the boy soldier  decided to. desert forthwith, little  considering limy serious an offence  desertion was., lie. and another  soldier ran away one night and a  few days later were, captured.  Griflis was tried by a drumhead  court-martial and sentenced to be  shot at. retreat. .Tust before the  execution was to take place captain  THE BANK* ��2E  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared'to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, XT.

Crews said he had concluded to  postpone it for thirty days, during  which time the- condemned, youth,  should be held in the guardhouse  at For.t. Reno.- He was conveyed  thither by a strong guard and  orders were given to a blacksmith  to put him in chains. Griflis knew  the blacksmith, and whispered to  him to make the manacles large,  which the blacksmith did ; so large,  in (fact, that Griflis. each night drewr  hisifcet out of> them and enjoyed-  good- rest.-  The young scout had for a prison  mate a soldier who had thoainiquo  pseudonym of Gee Whiz, a daring  chap. After he and Griffis had  been confined about twenty-five  days in the guardhouse .Gee Whiz  cut a hole through tlie roof, and  then one night he and Griflis  crawled out into the world, much  to the surprise of the sentry, who  let two poorly aimed bullets drive  at them. Camp was in a commotion in an instant, but Gee Whiz  and Griflis were fleeing wildly  across the plains and were out of  immediate danger .by tho time- a  concerted measure.foi' their capture  had,been undertaken. They.went  seventy-Jive miles, south,, nearly,  starving en route, and finally  separated.  For,- three years Griflis roamed  about the country, traveling in all  the ways known to hoboes.*  lu 1S8-J, in London, Ontario, he  was converted.. He was iii that-  city . as- a tramp when a. sermon  which he heard delivered in the  street by a member, of the Salvation  Army made.a deep impression- on  him. He at length joined the  Salvation Army. While., still in,  London lie was sent to jail for  beating a-drum in the streets - con.-  trary to law and during his incarceration ho began a study of the  English language, lie worked in  the army-two or three years, be-  camean evangelist, and ten years  ago, having been ordained .as a minister, came to Buffalo.  Not7till four years ago did this  remarkable man. secure immunity  from the; death sentence,-which was  pronounced upon him in 1881.  Through the,good offices of two  well-known Buffalo men he secured  a full pardon. lie returns to Oklahoma as presbyterial evangelist or  pastoiyat-large and his work will,  be among whites as well aa Indians.

The Athabasca salooa was the  headquarters of everybody last  night. There jubilant Liberals  jostled sanguine Labor men and  sedate Conservatives, all in the best  of humor. P. J.

At Wardner, the only voters were  the deputy returning officer and  his clerk, and they couldn't vote  against Galliher without being  found ont.  FOUND THE PARADISE LEAD  Want a Jury.

When the crew were starting  to move the roller from its position  in the city quarry on Victoria  street, a section of the roadway  crumbled beneath the weight" and  for a few minutes it looked as  though the ponderous engine would  take a short cut down the hill to  Baker street. The balance of the  roadway held, however,- and the  engine was pulled into a safe position with block and tackle.  ^  m  Groceries, Crockery.

The Congregational Bazaar.  The bazaar in Kirkpatrick ��fc Wilson's new store under the .auspices  of the Ladies' Aid Society of the  Congregational church opened yesterday and promises to be most successful. The booths are arranged  on the west side of the building  "andl_rendevot"e1:rtcf_tl^^Usplay"~of  an attractive assortment of fancy  articles, the. product of the skillful  fingers of the ladies of the church.  At the rear of the building is the  dining room section, where substantial meals and dainty lunches  are served at various hours of the  day. The bazaar is well worth a  visit.  A  Runaway Car.  The tramway system had troubles of its own yesterday. One of  the winter cars was stalled. at the  corner of Stanley and Baker streets  for some time during the afternoon  through troublo with the current.  It was finally moved, and No. .3, the  big combination ear, came down to  the rescue. Not long after No. .Ts  brake apparatus got out of kilter,  and as sho came down Stanley  street her speed was greater than  would otherwise have been the  case. Conductor Campion, who  was in the rear end, was in the  Kootenay street accident last year  when M; P. Peters lost his arm, and  apparently was unwilling to take  any chances on another spill, for he  alighted hurriedly as the car  approached Baker street. Motor-  man Coyle stuck to his post and  stopped the car without difficulty  soon after it rounded the corner.  John Miles' Good Fortune.  .Tohn   Miles,   better    known   as  'Paddy," and one of the old-timers  on Forty-nine creek, was among the  prospectors who spent election day  in the city.    Miles has  been   hammering .away    on   his   Forty-nine  creek claims, the Paradise and Majestic, for nearly  (en   years.    Both  were   staked   under   this   old   act,  -which   permits   miners   to * follow  veins anywhere they  may  lead  to  from a point within  the limits of  his  own   claim,    ii  now   looks  as  though Miles  was to reap the harvest sown in a decade of work, and  this arises out of the fact that he  has succeeded in locating the vein  on the Paradise claim.   The ground  was staked because of the masses of  'rich float found on it,  indicating  the presence of a lode in the vicinity.   Prospecting  proved   to be a  difficult proposition because of tho  fact that   the   whole   claim  was  covered with wash not less than 15  feet   deep   at   any    point.     Miles  worked  along   steadily   with   the  exception of-.*a few years spent in  the city, but was unable to find tlie  vein in place, although assured tliat  it-existed.   Apparently  his confidence begat confidence, for various  offers to purchase were made, ono  at least being $15,000 cash.   The  offers were not accepted, however,  Miles' theory being that if he found  the   vein   in", place   his    property  would be cheap at three times this  amount.  Within the. last few weeks the  long-looked-for vein was- located.  It is between:walls of granite and  porphyry, and, while -.nixed with  gangue. on' the surface, gives evidence of coming into solid ore with  a comparatively little depth. Miles  has started a tunnel on the vein  and is in a short distance. The  tunnel is -six feet wide between  walls and is all. in ore. The only  sample of ore from the tunnel  assayed up. to the present time  went .$152.20.; 'Various prospectors  aud mining men have seen the find  within the last week or two, and  their reports confirm the foregoing.  There seems to be no doubt. that  the Paradise-vein is a strong ledge  of free milling ' ore which will run  high in values.  The question has arisen among  the prospectors interested in the  section as. to. whether the new  Paradise vein is not identical with  "that on the Republic which adjoins  on the north. The owner of the  Republic figures that his lead runs  east and west quartering up hill,  while it is claimed that the Paradise lead runs almost due north  and south and is really the same  vein, the fact that the mineral is  -deposited-in-air-oblique-formation-  across the fissure leading to a confusion of directions. Further work  will demonstrate one or other of  the theories; the solution of which  is naturally of importance to the  owners of adjoining ground.  THEY ARE FACING A CRISIS  Library Needs Funds.  The directors of the public library  are facing a,'crisis in the history of  the institution. They require funds  to carry on the library and unless  this essential is forthcoming during  the present'month it is extremely  likely that the library will close its  doors and go out of business. The  directors met yesterday afternoon  and the treasurer reported that the  funds on hand were" not sufficient  to see the library through the  month, particularly as the subscriptions to the periodicals for the  free reading room must be renewed  before the first of the year.  The library has been run under  the present system for two years  and seems to be appreciated, the  secretary's', report indicating that  the attendance in the free reading  and recreation; rooms average 100  daily. An effort was made this  year to induce the city to take over  the library, but the aldermen did  not consider the proposition in a  favorable light and the old directorate are still endeavoring to keep  the institution afloat.
