 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:   THURSDAY MOENING DECEMBER 13  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  THE CONVENTION OF MINE OWNERS  if  Smelter Matters to Receive Considerable Attention���Some  of Those in Attendance.  WORK ON HOMESTEAD. GROUP TO COMMENCE SHORTLY  The members of the Mine Owners'  Association are in the city today in  strong force,  a  special  convention  having been called by the president.  A meeting takes place this morning  at 10 o'clock, and tonight  the/association will dine at tlie Hotel 'Hume.  Among   those  -who   came  in   last  night was a strong delegation from  the   Slocan    camp,    including    E.  Griddle,   of   tlie   Wakefield   mine,  Silverton, and  the  following San-  doni.es:   H.  B.  Alexander  of   the  Ruth, L, Alexander of the H. E.  Lee, W. E. Zwieky of the Payne, A.  W. Wright of the Ajax, George II.  Ransom  of  tlie  Slocan  Sovereign,  David Heap of the  Last Chance, J. *  A. Whittier of the Reco, and  E. M.  Saudilands.      In    addition,   James  Croniu of the  St.   Eugene  mine at  Moyie and P. Robbins of the North  Star at Kimberley came. in  on  the  Crow's Nest boat.    It i3 noticeable  also that tho name  of D.  C. Johnson,  who  represents   the  Everest,.  Washington, smelter, follows  tliat.  of the mine owners on the register  at  the  Hotel  Phair.    Tlie   Nelson  association   met   yesterday   afternoon and  considered various  matters,  tlie nature  of  which  is  not  divulged.  It is understood that the docket  of business contains several items of  special interest to the association  aud that the organization may before the meeting closes be iu tho  -position of the shepherd receiving  into the fold a wandering sheep.  Among the matters of more public knowledge is that arising out of  the smelter question. The American smelting combine has refused  to renew its contracts with the  silver-lead producers of the Kootenays for the present, at least, and  the suspicion is rife among the  mine managers that the combine  meditates a general and sharp advance in rates. The alleged reason  brought forward by the combine is  that recent discoveries of great deposits of lead ores in South Africa  has knocked the bottom out of  prices. The immediate result of  the refusal to renew old contracts  has been to divert ore from many  Slocan properties to the Nelson  smelter within* the past, week or  two, and now the mining magnates  are putting their heads together to  devise a scheme whereby they can  set the combine at naught. Naturally the point at issue is of grea'fi  importance to the industry.        ���.���>���::������*;  To Resume Work.  Tlie Porter  Brothers,  J.  C.  and  *=^Da=vid"rare*_rranging"to~re^orximen^e=  work on the Homostako group on  Porty-nhie creek in the vicinity of  the May and Jennie property. A  small crew will probably start work  on Monday next, and operations  will be continued for some time,  possibly,-;.all winter. The Home-  stake is a promising property, one  of the best showings on the creek,  The work up to the present time is  not sufficient to demonstrate the  merit of the claims and the Porters  propose to develop to a.stage where  exact data cau be secured.  Incorporating New Company.  Application has been made for  articles of incorporation for the  Rossland Proprietary Company,  Limited. The new corporation will1  have its headquarters in Nelson  and will operate the Derby and  Nelsou No. 2 mineral claims iu Rossland recently purchtised at $50,000  by Lucien Weyl, actiug for the  French capitalists who are interested in the Chapleau company.  -       _���        .- $, .- .  Seized Kaslo Claims. - '   ,  The sheriff has seized the R. O.  R., Red Elephant and Albert claims  on Canyon creek, a tributary of the  south fork of Kaslo creek. Tlie  seizure was made to satisfy a judgment for .$117 and cost3 secured by  Harry Klapach against Madison  Hicks. Little is known about the  claims here except that they are  located in a section that is  thoroughly prospected.  Gone to Lardo.  A. II. Gracey, engiueer for the  Imperial Development Syndicate,  has recovered from his recent indisposition and left last night" for  the north. He will look after-tlie  work on the Lexington, mountain  properties which the syndicate has  under bond. The operations consist at present of development work  for the purpose of determining the  nature and extent of the ore body,  and the conditions are such that  more than foot per foot is gained iii  depth.  More Men for tho Molly.  Tlie management of the Molly  Gibson mine is increasing the crew  on the property today. This morning twelveor fifteen miners left for  the Molly Gibson landing to go up  to the mine.-.' All are experienced  underground men. The property is  shipping ore steadily to the/' Hall  Mines smelter, although the shipments are not as frequent as will  be the case when the teaming facilities are improved by snow ou  tlre~Avagom*oad7^ ~ ~    ~~  One of the Proclamations.  London, December 12.���Forty-  one proclamations of lord Ro.berts  have been published. They have  been mostly summarized previously  in the newspapers. The last one,  dated November 18th, says: "As  there appears to be some misunderstanding as regards the burning of  farms, the commander-in-chief  wishes the following to be the lines  upon which general oflicers commanding are to act: No farm is to  be burned except for an act of  treachery, or when our troops are  fired ou from the premises, or as a  punishment for the breaking of tho  telegraph or railway, or when used  as a basis of operations for raids,  and then only with the direct consent of the general officer commanding. The mere fact that a  burgher is absent on a commando  is on no 'account to-be used as a  reason for 'burning his house. All  cattle, wagons and food stuffs are  to be removed from all farms. If  that is impossible they are to be  destroyed, whether the owner is  present or not."  ... Winter Precautions.  Washington, December 12.���  With a view of avoiding the danger  of having any of the United States  vessels caiight fast in the ice in the  gulf of Pe Chi Li, at the mouth of  the Pei Ho river, during the present  winter the navy department has reduced its representation in that  quarter to two ships. One is the  Monocacy, which has been ordered  ytoto �� mud dock in the Pei Ho river  near Taku, where she will serve as  a station ship. She will be closed  np tight aud will be perfectly safe  in her dock from the ordinary  vicissitudes of the winter. The  other vessel is the New Orleans,  which has been turned into a dispatch boat for the time being, plying between Shang-Hai, Chefoo  and Taku at regular intervals. But  she will bo kept clear of the ice at  Taku as far as possible and will not  be expected to enter the river mouth  in case , of a freeze. The army  transport service has landed all of  the supplies that are deemed to be  necessary to carry general Chaffee  aud troops comfortably through the  winter, so that it will be unnecessary for any other ships to enter  the Pei Ho.  Mrs. Maybrick Finds a Friend.  London, December 12.���Mrs.  Maybrick has found a new and  powerful champion in the person of  Adeline, duchess of Bedford, who  since the tragic suicide of her husband has devoted herself to philanthropic enterprises, giving much of  her attention to the great female  penitentiary at Aylesbury, where  Mrs. Maybrick is working out her  term of penal servitude. This, according to English prison regulations, will be brought to a close by  means of a ticket of leave about1  two years hence, and possibly a few  months earlier.  The duchess, who is a sister of  lady Henry Somerset, and with her  a co heiress of the late earl of  Sorners, is a frequent and constant  visitor at the penitentiary, and not  only endeavors to alleviate the lot  of the unfortunate inmates, but endeavors to.provide for their welfare  after their restoration to freedom.  She has been especially interested and attracted by Mrs. Maybrick, who through h_r birth, education and refinement, as well as  by'tho dignity and patience with  which she bears her lot, presents so  striking a contrast to the other  female convicts.  The duchess has become convinced not only of the fact that  Mrs. Maybrick was unjustly convicted through not receiving a fail-  trial, but likewise that she is innocent of the murder of her husband.  The duchess has in consequence become one of the most enthusiastic  champions of Mrs. Maybrick and is  more powerful tliau friends whom  Mrs. Maybrick has yet won, for she  exercises an immense amount of  influence. ,      ��  Even should the duchess be unable to obtain any remission of ..the  sentence, she is in a position as>  official visitor of the female penitentiary to secure many little  privileges and favors for Mrs. Maybrick which will tend to lighten her  punishment and will prove most  useful to her when she emerges  sometime in 1902. Thanks to her  action, many leaders of society here,  including the adopted daughter of  the duchess, the-young countess of  Dudley, are interesting themselves  in behalf of Mrs. Maybrick.  MORE OF THE KRUGER AFFAIR  COUNT     VON    BUELOW    AGAIN  RISES TO  EXPLAIN.  The Boer President Was Courteously  Informed in Paris That He Could  Not Be Received.  Berlin,   December   12.���In   the  reichstag today the imperial chancellor, count von  Buelow, referring  to the complaints.which have arisen  on account   of  emperor ..William's  failure to receive Mr. Kruger, went  lengthily again into the reasons for  the  non-reception  of Mr.  Kruger,  covering new ground in a statement  which he made as to  the  relations  between     Germany     and      Great  Britain.   He said the announcement  that  Mr.  Kruger  was coming was  made  twenty-four  or  at the most  forty-eight   hours   before    leaving  Paris.    Up to that moment* it had  been   thought    that...... Mr,   Kruger  would go from Paris to Holland.  The chancellor added : " We apprised' him courteously through the  Paris embassy and Dr. Leyds that  the emperor regretted that he was  not in a position to  receive him.  Notwithstanding^_this_Mr Kru gei_.  started. He was told again at  Cologne, in the most considerate  terms, that the emperor was unable  to see him."  Count von Buelow repudiated the  suggestion that it was due to any  wish or proposal from the English  court or government to the emperor to himself:. "For the emperor" lie said, "only German national  considerations were authoritative.  If family relations or dynastic considerations influenced tlie foreign  policy, I would not remain minister  another day." Continuing the  chancellor said the Anglo-German  agreement of 1S00 did not contain  a provision relating to war between  Great Britain and tho South African republics and the Yang Tse aud  Sanioan agreements had no secret  clauses. When the emperor, in  1890, sent the telegram to Mr.  Kruger there was no question of  war between the states. It was a  matter of a filibustering expedition.  The chancellor did not repudiate  the telegram whereby the emperor  gave a correct expression of his  righteous feeling regarding international law.  Improved Ordnance.  Berlin, December 12.���In the  reichstag today, referring to there-  ports that a division of the German  army had been recently armed with  a new rifle minister of war von Gos-  sler admitted that in order to keep  abreast with modern requirements  the war office was negotiating with  a Scandinavian inventor for the  pattern of an automatic breech  loading rifle. The pattern, however, had not yet been supplied.  TRAMPLED  ON  THE FLAG  AN INCIDENT TK_Y�� MAY CAUSE  ItUSSIA TROUBLE.  ,T6ro   Down  the  British   Colors and  Almost Fired on the Troops-  Boxers Are Still Active.  Shang-Hai, December 12.-���Field  marshal Waldersee recently gave  orders to hoist the Russian flag at  the landing place at Shaii Kwan in  place of  the  flags , of the powers,  which   had  beeii  hitherto  hoisted  .... *--.,fcjj*..-  there, but the English officers in  that place, saying that no order  had-been received from their commander, general Gazelee, left the  English flag .flying . and put Sikh  guards over it. Meanwhile the  Russian oflicers, with sixty or one  hundred soldiers arrived and presumptuously pulled the flag down  aud trampled it under foot. English officers thereupon protested  and hoisted the flag again. The  Russian troop-* were so ��� much excited that they almost opened fire  upon the Euglish. The Russian  troops excused ��� .-themselves and  apologized afterwards; but according to the opinio'n-of naval and military comman J ers a collision between  England and Rusaiia is unavoidable.  Further fighting took place near  Kao Mi on Noveniber 1st. A large  number of Boxers.assernbled there  and strongly fortified two villages  which wero known as turbulent.  As interference by.them .with railway work ,was . apprehended the  German marines;;with 400 men, attacked' the two villages. These  were captured..;;-;After all the women and children aiid old people  had been sent'away the villages  were burned to the ground. The  German troops had one trumpeter  and seven men wounded, while 200  dead Chiuese wpre,lef___n the field.  The.same-special^says.thkt, detachments of the allied forces have been  despatched to various localities in  order to put down the remaining  Boxers.  THE MEETING WAS SECRET  Mining Commission  Discussed.  The executive of the associated  boards of trade of southern British  Columbia met in-Nelson last night,  the members present being J. Roderick Robertson, president; T.  Mayne Daly, proxy for president  Lalonde of the Rossland board; G.  G. V. Holt, Nelson; Gr. O. Buchanan,  Kaslo; James Cronin, Moyie; colonel  E. S. Topping, Trail, and H. W. C.  Jackson, Rossland, secretary. Mr.  Robertson held a proxy for Scott  "Gal lS\vtCy"of=GfeemVdotlT"-  The business in hand was the  consideration of the proposal by  Hon. Clifford Sifton, minister of  the interior, to form a special commission to inquire into the  relation of the public policy of the  Dominion as to the mining industry,  including transportation, smelting,  refining and marketing of ores and  their products. The committee  commenced business at 8 o'clock  and discussed the matters in question until 11:30 o'clock. On the  adjournment the president and  other members stated that certain  resolutions had been adopted and  would bo forwarded to the ministers of the interior and finance, but  that the meeting had decided the  interests of the mining industry  would be best served by their not  disclosing the terms of the recommendations until the government  had indicated its line of action.  Hence they declined to divulge any  further particulars of  the meeting.  Suit Over the Marian Claim.  O. J. Marino, plaintiff in the  action of Marino vs. Alexander, was  examined for discovery at the  court house yesterday. R. S.

Tho  contents of the one to her father  were alone made public. She  begged his forgiveness for what  she was about to do. ��She left some  money and valuables for him aud  bade him farewell. Mr. Wickham  is worth from fifty to seventy-five  thousand dollars and is the owner  of valuable property here.  Victoria, December 12.���Tlie Empress of India, which arrived today  after   a     most    stormy    passage  brought news of a great typhoon  which ravaged Hong Kong November 10th, effusing heavy los_ of life  and shipping. Wreckage and debris  were strewn everywhere after  the  blow.    The British  gunboat  Sandpiper foundered and some  of her  seamen lost their lives. The American   ship   Benjamin   Sewell   went  ashore and in all 77 steam launches  were wrecked and over 2500 natives  were drowned.   At Kow Loon  and  other points there also was very  heavy loss.    The Empress of India  was at her wharf at Kow Loon and  she was badly shaken.   Kow Loon  suffered   even   more    than    Hong  Kong.    The troops fared very badly, the whole of the temporary barracks collapsed completely and  the  European troops had to seek refuge  from   the   flooded   camp   grounds  where they could.  A British warship anchored in  Kow Loon in a grievous plight.  The gunboats Wivern, Firefly,  Tweed and Sandpiper dragged their  anchors aud it looked as though all.  must drift ashore. Those on shore  could do nothing but stand by witli  buoys and lines should the vessels  drift ashore. The gunboat Sandpiper was in the worst fix,'- as she'  was rapidly filling and" could not  float many minutes. Then creeping out of the spume arid spray the  steamer Ottei from Hong Kong  came in sight and took on board the  crew of the Sandpiper. The editor  of the nong Kong Press, who  watched the rescue, said lie could  not see with the spume aud thick  spray how the crew of the Sandpiper, with one exception, safely  got 911 board the Otter before their  gunboat foundered,,but the work  of rescue Avas accomplished and the  Otter steamed away.  At daybreak on Saturday naval  yard police Duncan lost his life in a  gallant attempt to rescue two sampan women, whose boat was dashed  to pieces against the embankment.  Thoy were struggling in the water  when he went to their assistance.  Sergeant Laurence threw him a  rope, whicli he seized, but a. wave  carried-Dnncan and the women out.  Tlie women never returned, but  Duncan managed to get back twice,  and was just on the point of getting  on to the embankment when a wave  came and forced him back and he  iwas-never-seen=agaiu.-==Duncan=was=  an old 9lst Argyle and Sutherland  Highlander's man. He had been  away from homo since 1880 and  was looking forward to returning  to his home in Edinburgh in about  two years.  Want a Mining Bureau.

More votes were polled east of   the  Columbia river than were polled iu  Vancouver, or  in   Victoria,   or   in  Westminster district.    This is sig-  T=*nincant^and=;indicates=that=in=a=re*-=  distribution of seats, that part   of  Kootenay   east   of   the   Columbia  river will   have a representative.  Rossland -will be thrown into Yale,  With one   member.    Cariboo,   Lil-  looet.audCassiar, although probably  not entitled to a  member because  of   population,   should   have   one.  Westminister district will get   one.  i Vancouver city one,   and   Victoria  city one.   The sixth seat going   to  Vancouver Island.   Imt it is Avith  the district east of   tho   Columbia  ; river that the people hero   are   interested.   At the late  election, as  | far as returns have been   received,  Foley polled  1523   votes,  Galliher  1.331,' and McKaue 108-1.    In a three-  cornered fight, with a  good   candidate, the Independent Labor party  would win.    This is  the one constituency, outside   of   the   one   in  which Nanaimo is situated that the  Independent   Labor    party    could  carry.   That party could not carry  Yale, even  with   the Lillooets and  Cariboo-cut ..'off.    Including   these  districts, at the last election, as far  as the returns have been  received,  Galliher polled 1709 \Totes,  McKane  3 410, and Foley 1130.    These figures  are interesting, as indicating the result of future contests.  esting, not only because of the  contentions of the writer, but because of the statements therein  made of the daily receipts of ore  at Trail from mines that are noAv  world-famous. The writer is just  as contentious for the building of  smelters in British Columbia today  as he Avas then. He Avas in Nelson  yesterday,and made the remarkable  statement that the parties who  recently secured control of the  Dominion Copper Company intended  to erect their smelter just across  the line in the state of Washington,  just as did the owners of the Le  Roi mine. The owners of the Le  Roi mine,-by building their smelter  at Northport, built up a town iu  Washington, whicli in no way  benefits British Columbia. But the  letter is Avhat is interesting :  TRAIL, December 5 th, 1S93.  =_=To^th'e=Kdllbr^ofc=ll'he=Ti,Ibuno:=__-you=iiivvo=  called upon nie to refute statements made by the  Northport News, in regard to Northport being  tho proper outlet, for the Trail Creek ores and tlio  proper site for the proposed pyritlo smelter, 1  will do ao. 1 have been told that the mucli-  Uilked-of smeltor is to be run by wind. If that is  so, Northport is the best site available*, because  of the motive power being so handy���in tlio N'ows  olllce. As to the outlet for ore, Northport. is  twenty-two miles from the mines, Trailbutfour.  The mines are reached from Northport over un  iiiditrcrcnt cattle trail; from Tiail, by a good  wagon road. Hut why refute hy words what  mature has made impracticable by mountains,  swamps and distance! Asa mattni of fuel,  twelve tons of oro are being lauded dally -it flic  Trail wharf from the Le Hoi, Josio nnd Nickel  i'latc mines. E. H. TOPPlNcJ.  Seven short years and smelters at  both Trail and Northport, treat'sne;  1200 tons of ore a day.    Seven short  yeas*s and Trail   changed   from   a  hamlet to a good-sized   toAvn,   and  the Trail Creek camp from   a   half  dozen miners' cabins to a city of  eight    thousand    people.       What  changes Avill the next   seven yeai*s  bring?   Gray hairs and wrinkles to  men like colonel Topping and other  pioneers who had faith in the country, and millions of wealth   to   the  men who followed when the   cattle  trails and wagon roads were obliterated by railways.  The following letter appeared in  The Tribune on December 7 th,  ,1_93-���seven years ago.   It is inter-  Hon. Richard McBride^ minister  of mines, has spent three weeks inspecting mines, mills, and smelters  in Southern Kootenay and Yale,  and interviewing mine-owner and  business-men delegations. Yet in  all that time he has not heard a  word as to the one question that  Avas a burning issue here a year ago.  That goes to sh'ow how soon some  issues die from the effects of prosperity. A year ago mine-owners  and business men controlled by  mine-owners Avere loud in proclaiming that the country would be  ruined if tho eight-hour laAVAvas not  repealed. The eight-hour laAv Avas  not repealed and the country is  prosperous. But there is another  issue whieh the same element that  opposed the eight-hour laAv are deciding, that is, the two per cent tax  on the output of metalliferous  mines. A year from now that issue  Avill be as dead as the eight-hour  law. Time and good times AA'orks  wonders. No section of Canada has  so good a future in prospect as has  the section of Avhich Sandon, Kaslo,  Moyie, Nelson, Rossland, Trail,  Phoenix, Grand Forks, GreenAVOod,  New Denver, Silverton, Ymir and  Slocan City arc centers. Squelch  the blue ruin shouters, and give the  agitators who..want the earth witli-  out paying for it the go-by.  **xzirmzixi_zzii_*q  Holiday  " *" |  Novelties tj  Arriving Daily.

David, Who Are You Hitting at?  Nelson Economist.  Tlie   student   of   human nature  finds    variety    for    the    exercise  of his talents in an   election   campaign.    In   the   committee   room,  where the wheels  of   organization  are continually   rolling,   all   sorts  and conditions of men are gathered  together, and here they   give free  rein to their faculty for   invention.*  Nearly every man believes he is   a  politician, and it   is   a   fact   that  ^niany who, in other avenues of life,  '^aro not susceptible,  to   the   gentle  arts of flattery, can be   easily  convinced that*, they wield great influence iu the sphere of politics.   In  my own day; I am free to   confess,  lhave held exalted   views  of   my  own ability to move large bodies on  the political field.    Experience   has  convinced me of my error, aud incidentally the belief has been forced  upon me that men   who   scorn   to(  utter an untruth iu any   other   re-.  gard, unhesitatingly avow their determination to   deceive   when   engaged   in   a    political "campaign.  Again, there is a class of men  who  are always anxious to   bo   on   the  ���winning side.. Perhaps  the result  of the recent  election   is   the besfc1-  evidence of this fact, but  I. cannot  refrain from giving the instanco of  a very shallow   young - man,   who  was loud in   proclaiming   tho   unqualified support of   his family to  the   Conservative   cause.    On   the  evening of Novomber-7th he learned  tliat the   Conservatives   had   lost,  and     immediately  ^ started      for  the    Liberal     committee     room.".  His presence there was regarded as  an inOr'asion.    Someone asked this  young political  profligate: "What  are you Conservatives doing in the  Liberal  committee rooms?"      Uu-  blushingly this young man resented  the insult, remarking:  "Couservar  tive?   Well, .if you only, knew it,  perhaps I ani just as good a Liberal  as you are; and.I have intended all  along to vote for Galliher."    In the  campaign through which we  have  just passed I devoted much of my  time to study of the different types  of men who attended the committee  meetings, and it  was  not long before  1  could gauge  with absolute  ���certainty their specialties.    I knew  that one man  would report every  one he knew as a supporter of our  candidate;   another  would  tell us  that on  the previous day he had  met a life-long Liberal who had'become   thoroughly   disgusted   with'  his party aud would now vote Conservative; another knew the political   affiliations   of   the family   of  someone at  Kuskonook   for  three  generations, and so  ou.   All were  wise in their unlimited  knowledge  of how to conduct a campaign suc-  _ces-_ully,=but,alLtheii_cwisdom=Avas=  eclipsed by the man who, on enter-  ing-the room, would call the secretary to one side and whisper secrets  in the ear of that functionary.  His  specialty was a pompous pretence  of knowledge and of possessing the  confidence of those high in political  authority.   This master mind was  constant source of amusement,  [lis various schemes to entrap the  unwary voter would, if detailed in  full,"fill an oncyclopasdia of the  di'iiensions of the Jkitannica,  printed in pearl type. .

WHAT  MILITIAMEN  WANT  clean sheet and a fair chance to  succeed. The officers, generally it  is understood,"would be glad to  have a change in uniform. When  the regiment was mooted it was to  have a distinctive uniform, and  lieutenant-colonel Peters, then district officer commanding, designed  a handsome .uniform of Khaki  faced and piped with scarlet. This  would have been neat, novel, serviceable and cheap. Instead * of  carrying out the original idea the  department'forwarded the regulation rifle uniform worn by more  than half the Canadian militiamen,  but supplemented the issue with a  felt hat which is not universally  admired. The militiamen believe a  distinctive uniform is coming to  them and are urging its adoption.  There are several other matters  which the militiamen would like  attended to and it is safe to predict they will secure all it is possible to get through influence at  the capital. '������'���* *  They're Canucks Now.  At the county court which closed  on Tuesday, a number of American  citizens became naturalized citizens  of the Dominion of Canada.

OPPOSITE  -pjtfjromcH,  STRACHAN BROTHERS, Plumbers  For the Year 1901.  Militia officers, representing the  Nelson and Kaslo companies, had an  informal'interview yesterday with  W. A. Galliher, M. P., in regard to  matters concerning the regiment.  It was pointed out to the new member for Yale-Cariboo, although the  fact was probably known to him  previously, that the Rocky Mountain Rangers had suffered through  lack of drill hall facilities. After  the first burst of enthusiasm attending the organization of the  corps the members tired of eternal  drilling without any of the social  features on which the eastern  organizations depend to a great extent'to* encourage recruiting and  keep up the interest among the  older members. With drill halls,  such as have been promised, the  social features could be introduced  and much accomplished in the  direction of recruiting and maintaining strong companies at the  various headquarters. Nelson and  Kaslo each have excellent building  lots available and the department  has made some move toward establishing the drill halls, but the  militia officers want some energy  instilled into the ' official red  tape in order that their . companies  may commence next year  "3-=  .    .._.          12 !l  Brandon & Golden Crown  9 4  Canadian Goldfields Syndicate... 8} 7_  Cariboo Hydraulic  149 1_  Centre Star \.  1 49 1 _  Crow's Neat Pass Coal...;'  57 50 50 to  California  0 4}  Deer Trail Consolidated  _** ��� ��� 'ih  Evening Star.....  8 fij  Fairview Corporation.  2A 2  GoldenStar    Hi '.'*  Giant'.  3 <i\  Iron Mask  28 2U  Knob Hill......  ffl ���  Lone Pine-Surprise Consolidated.'. i) (!
