 V    *"v"=-__  1 -&v .  Ix.  4  I  it  Ism  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  '-��-':"'  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSOtf:  TUESDAY MO&NTNG DECEMBER 18 1900  PRICE IWE CENTS  AND If THE PALMETTO STRIKES IT  Managers  of the Mine  Sanguine They Have the Extension of the  Queen  Bess  Vein.  WORK TO RESUME ON THE MARIAN-OTHER MINING NEWS  Following  the   recent strike on  the Queen Bess mine comes the report of another discovery of mineral,   this  time   on   the  Palmetto  group an adjoining property owned  by the Palmetto  Mining  Company  and managed by A. W. Wright.   A  crosscut tunnel to tap the lead at a  depth of about 50 feet came into an  ore body which Mr. Wright states  is two feet in  width, aud' of fine  quality.   The Palmetto was taken  over by tlie present company about  three years ago but was shut down  for   some   time   during  the  labor  trouble.    When work was resumed  recently the crosscut was started  to tap the vein, Avhich ifc did as intended.    Development is being continued steadily, and while the management is not stoping ore the ton  or more of clean shipping ore taken  out daily in the course of development is being carefully sacked and  will be shipped during the  winter.  The Palmetto ore runs  HO to 150  ounces in  silver aiid  00  per  cent  lead, and   as   the  management is  convinced they have the extension  of the Queen Bess vein, the  proposition is naturally regarded as  one  .���.'v.vthe most premising in its particular section.  I  The Marian to Resume.  i  J. K. Clark of New Denver, a  well known Slocan mining man,  was iu the city yesterday on business. * 'He is manager of "the Marian  property on which work is to be resumed shortly. The Marian is a  silver-lead property adjoining the  California on the northeast and the  Hartney on the southwest. It is in  the same belt as the Bosun, Alpha  and other well known properties.  Touching his proposition Mr. Clark  says: "The Marian is au excellent  prospect." lb is owned by E. L.  Sawyer and .T. G. Chapman of Toronto, who are said to be contem-  platingstockiugtheproposition. The  ore is high grade and* particularly  strong in lead values, the latter  being said to average 70 per cent,  while the silver values usually run  as high as 150 ounces. A considerable amount of work has been done  . on the Marian and several carloads  of ore are sacked'ready for shipment. This will be.got out when  work is resumed early in January.  On the California a small crew is at  work steadily, aud a crew of 15  to  ~20"is"at~work*on-th"e"Hartney group  which gives every indication of becoming one of tho leading producers  in the New Denver camp. The  Hartney has been developed extensively for over a year and when  it commences shipping, which may  be the case this winter, will have  an extensive ore body in sight and  . be. in a position to mixke heavy  shipments.       -  From the Kaslo Group.  George Gurd has returned from a  visit to the Kaslo group on the  south fork of Carpenter creek which  ho is working under bond for an  eastern syndicate. He brought  back a number of handsome samples  of dry ore and states that the  property is looking well. A new  tunnel has been started to form a  third level and this is projected to  tap the vein at about 050 feet. The  second crosscut opened into ten  inches of ore which runs 400 to 800  ounces of silver. The values are  found in stepbauite, a sulphide of  silver of an iron black color otherwise known asblack silver or brittle  silver orev Au upraise has been  started between No. 2 and No. 1  levels for the purpose- of exploring  the ore body, and the completion of  this work will be awaited with interest. The ore can be readily  sorted by hand, the difference in  weight between that containing  values and the barren rock being  perceptible at once. A feature of  the vein is that sections of galena,  resembling closely the high grade  product of the Slocan Sovereign, a  promising adjoining property, are  found frequently. This would seem  to indicate the presence of a vein  ���of galena, probably in close  yproximifcy     to     the     dry    ore,  Afc the other end of the  group from where operations are  being carried on at the present  time is a strong vein of^galena  which is to be developed next  spring. Considerable ore is being  taken out of the Kaslo in the course  of development and the high grade  quality is being sacked away for  shipment at a-later date. An experiment will be made shortly as to  the best method of treating the dry  ore from the Kaslo. A couple of  systems are said to be practicable,  one being that of crushing the rock  and washing away the silicates as  is done in Mexico, while the second  is a new idea of an apparatus on the  ground to smelt the "ore, utilizing  the sulphide? as a flux. - Adjoining  the*Kaslo and further up hill are  the Trade Dollar aud Sunset properties, both of which are shipping  and promise to be permanent producers. Further up stream is the  Mountain Cow, recently acquired  by an English syndicate, and described as a promising proposition.  Also in the same district is the  Vulture ou which a parallel veinis  now- being tapped by a crosscut.  The Vulture is to ship this fall.  ning order quickly, and after the  end of this month a close record will  be kept of the mill in order to make  a test run. The apparatus is handling 25 tons of ore daily.  The Molly Gibson Shipments  The Molly Gibson mine is now  shipping a carload of ore daily to  the smelter. The output averages  eighty ounces and nets the management a neat daily income. The  enlarged underground crew is at  work and everything is in splendid  shape at the property for a successful winter's operations'. I  TORONTO STOCK EXCHANGE.  BATTLE OF HEAVYWEIGHTS  A Deal at Ainsworth.  A deal was closed recently at  Ainsworth whereby A. D. Westby  of Minneapolis, Minnesota, acquired  the Golden Nugget group on the  north fork of Crawford creek from  Charles D. Taylor, .tlie locator and  owner. The group includes the  Golden Nugget,--Bryan-and-Atlanta  claims and is regarded as an . excellent prospect iu a district which  gives indications of eventually becoming an extensive producer. Two  veins cross the claims, one carrying  gold values and the other silver.  The former is four feet in width  and can be traced for 200 feet, while  the second vein is traceable  for 1000 feet and is claimed to  run 200 ounces of silver. The negotiations were clo.-ied too late for  development to be started this  winter and oper.ations are therefore  postponed until spring. The group  is a mile east and almost on the  same ridge as the well known Pontiac property. Elias Fitterliug of  Minneapolis, who is identified with  Mr. Westby in the Golden Nugget  deal, is also interested in the district. He is part owner with Norman Perkins, superintendent of the  United States'postal car service between Chicago and Spokane, of tho  Blue~Bird-property~which"~they~ac--"  quired about a year ago. Development will probably be commenced  on the Blue Bird also next summer.  On the Mountain Con.  The Mountain Con group, located  about four miles up the south fork  of j Carpenter creek from Cody, is a  proposition about which much has  been said during the last few weeks.  In this period W. W. Warneivof  Sandon, who held a lease and bond  on the three claims comprising the  group, turned his title oyer to an  English syndicate at a figure said to  be $25,000, of which $5000 was paid  dowu. The new owners have been  in possession for three weeks and a  comfortable camp has been constructed with the object in view of  continuing work all winter. During Warner's regime he shipped  three cars of ore which netted him  a trifle over $7000, from whicli an  idea of the possibilities of the property may be deduced. The name  is rather odd, and s'o far as The  Tribune has been able to learn no  one seems to know where the word  Con is derived from. It is not an  abbreviation of consolidated, but  may allude to the view obtainable  from the property or any other of  the half dozen meanings attached  to the expression.  Chapleau Mill Works Well.  Lucien Weyl, acting manager of  the Chapleau mine, came down from  the property yesterday after a  couple of weeks absence, in the  course of which the company's  mill was started. Mr. Weyl states  that the mill is running smoothly  and that matters at the mine are  progressing most satisfactorily.  The machinery was got into run-  MONDAY'S   QUOTATIONS.  -  stock. A-*_e_.

FOR FILIPINO GOVERNMENT  Politics in Manila.  ��� Manila, December 17.���The first  political party tinder the, American  "regime"is~ih"'process of formation.'  ��� Its principles" have been embodied  in a platfarm which will shortly be  made public. It is understood that  the declarations of the platform  give the fullest recognition to American sovereignty and also favor a  considerable degree of native autonomy in - internal and local affairs.  Several of the most intelligent Filipino leaders, who have been instrumental in bringing the matter to a  head, have been in conference with  those interested and the platform  :will be outlined in the Philippine  commission by senor Ruencamino,  former premier in the so-called government of Aguinaldo, and Dr.  Frank E. Bourne, an American, formerly chief surgeon with the rank  of major and health officer of  Manila. Mr. Bourne " was with  Prof. Deane of Worcester prior to  the-Ameriean-occupation-and���has-  confidential relations with the Filipino leaders. The commissioners  are not likely to give public expression to.their views regarding the  formation of political parties, but  the principles of the new organization so far as made known seem to  be favored by intelligent Filipinos.  Fought in the Mud.  The big corporation road roller  had a stiff fight with the mud yesterday; The apparatus was being  moved to Baker street west and  had to pass - the corner of Ward  street, where no macadam has been  laid and the mud has collected  ankle deep. The machine could not  get through with smooth shod  driving wheels and the engineer  substituted the spikes for the flat  plugs. Thus armed the roller made  the trip with flying -^colors before a  couple hundred citizens who gathered to witness the performance.  All Six Failed to Show Up.  There was no meeting of the city  council last night, none of the aldermen putting in an appearance. As  the mayov cannot dp.business alone,  or with the assistance of the city  clerk and The Tribune and Miner  reporters, an' adjournment was  taken. A special meeting will be  called some time during the week  to pass the accounts and payrolls,  in order that the city employees  can enjoy Christmas with a few  dollars in their pockets.

Rutledg'e and Thomas  Jess, which cases involve the extradition treaty of 1899. between the  United States and Great Britain,  negotiated by secretary Blaine for  tho United' Stixtes and sir Julian  Pauncefote for Great Britain. Mr.  S. II. Trude of Chicago, representing the petitioners, moved that  they be admitted .to bail and the  attorney for the British consul  moved to dismiss or affirm the decision of the court below, and failing in that that the case be admitted to .an early hearing. The case  comes to the supreme court on .appeal from the decision of the circuit court for the northern district  of Illinois and involves a number of  interesting questions. The motion  to admit to bail is exceptional in  the-supreme courtand���is~iir_itself  an innovation.

This town has more than  a local reputation for its splendid  stores, andthe merchants are bound  that they will maintain the town's  reputation.  The Sandon Paystreak admits  that there is a smelter trust in the  United States, and that no competition in the purchase of Slocan ore  need be looked for from that quarter, but it contends that the smelters in Canada are also in the trust.  If that is true, is it not better for  Canadians to be cinched by Canadians than robbed  by  Americans?  The   Bonnington    Falls    Power  Company crowd   are just a  trifle  surprised     to     find   that    Prank  Fletcher will oppose the candidate  they brought out for mayor*.   Mr.  Fletcher's record in the council is  not at all satisfactory to the Bonnington   Falls , Power-,. Company.  They want men in the city council  who will split hairs over technicalities,   not.   men   who   will   say:  ." The City of Nelson will have no  ���" competitor in a business that the  "city is engaged in."  According to statistics compiled  by the officials of the United States  mint at San Francisco, the gold  mines of the Klondyke produced  over $21,000,000 this year, every  dollar of which was assayed or  minted in the United States. This  /goes to show the great advantage  that would, accrue to the business  interests of Canada, were.... the gold  mined in Canada marketed iu Can-.  - , _af,-.J   _,  ada. Were assay offices established  at Victoria and Vancouver, the  merchants of these towns would  get the bulk of the trade incident  to the selling of gold that now goes  to ^Seattle and San Francisco. A  government that does not protect  the interests of its own people is  not doing its fullfduty, and if the  Laurier government does not establish assay offices at both Vancouver  and Victoria at an early date it  will not be doing its full duty to  the people of Canada.  An Outside Opinion.  Lardoau En-jle.  The general get-up, streets, etc.,  of Nelson would do credit to any  town in Canada.    Mayor Houston's  progressive ideas of municipal government   are   all right,   whatever  his personal faults JJ^ayJbe.^ Any  man   who  holds "higher   ideals of  government than the  average citizen is too  often jumped upon  because  of jealousy  rather than because there is any real grievance.  It seems to be human nature.    Any  person living a public life, especially those who entertain ideas of  legislation which are beneficial alike  to all, may expect   to   be made a  mark   for   every   Tom,   Dick  and  Harry's  criticism.     It  is  an ��� easy  matter to misconstrue the actions  of anjrone and attribute all kinds  of motives; but  it is not  so dead  easy to iind men who have backbone enough to carry out a certain  policy in the face of every opposition.   This western country needs  more, men  of back-bone and common sense, and as distasteful as it  may be to a few jealous disgruntled  weak-kneed  fault-finders, the general principles must be adhered to  to ensure   protection from greedy  private corporations.   A man may  have faults in his personal make-up  (who  has  not?)   but  so long as he  sticks to principles which  the best,  of economic students contend, are  i-ight.and just, he is entitled to the  hearty support of all in helping  to  bring.about a perfection of that  system.    For this   reason,   in   the  absence of a known  better qualification, John Houston should  consent   to   remain mayor of Nelson.  He has just commenced the idea of  municipal ownership and control of  municipal utilities,  and he should  be allowed to carry out his purpose,  if Nelsou wishes to retain  the high  position     ifc     already     holds     iu  Kootenay.      '  Mining. Becords....  Yesterday's mining records were :  Transfers: The Shiloh claim on Bear  creek '\ of a mile "from Ymir, by  Andrew Dods to the Silver Crown  Consolidated Mining Company.

TO THE ELECTORS OF KELSON:  At the request of a number of electors, I have  decided to oll'er myself as a candidate for mayor  at the coining civic elections. 1 have served as  alderiiian two years of tho four during  which the city has been conducting its own affairs, and my record while in the council on tho  questions that arc now the most important, issues  before tlie people of tho city is such as will bear  inspection.  ���  1 believe that the city 1ms valuable ass.ti in the  water and elect r'o Hijlit systems, and while in  the council T did everything possible tosafeguard  these assets; and if elected mayor no act or vote  of mine wi 1 be in favor of allowiug any outside  corporate interest to become a competitor with  the city in tho business of electric lighting, a  business in which the city "has already invested  fjrO.OW).'-  While in the council in IS'I", 1 voted in favor of  incorporating a fair wage clause in all contracts,  and that principle was carried out in both lei ter  and spirit. T see no reason to change my views  on that question now. And 1 believe, further,  that with competent foremen and superintendence that the city cui get as good value for tlie  money spent by having the great bulk of its work  done by day's labor as by the contract system,  and no gorul reason can bo advanced why the  city should not pay the same rate of wages and  work men the same number of hours a-s pro vails  in private enterprises.  I am in favor of giving the busines* and property interests every safeguard possible, and to  that end I believe the' Are department should bo  made as efficient as possible, consistent wit h the  revenues of the city. _.  Nelson should be kept in advance of its rivals,  nnd everything possible must be done to induce manufacturing enterprise* to locate here,  for it is tlie payrolls that build up the cities of  today.  Nelson, a western city, is as orderly and law  abiding as eastern cities. This is because the"  people of Nelson are tolciant. I believe that this  spirit of toleration should be continued, and I  ���will it elected mayor do no act,to abridge or curtail the rights o. -piivilcgcs of one class of our  citizens merely because another class may. have  different views, -  The city lias made a start in permanent.street  improvements, and lam in favor of .continuing  tSese improvements as fast as possible, with due  regard to tho revenues of the city.  ' If elected mayor, I am in a position and will  pledge myself to devote, my time to the conduct  of the city'a bur-lncs?.  FRANK FLETCHER.  Nelson. "December loth, lflOO.

Savings Bank Branch  CUHHKNT HATK OK INTRUKRT PAID.  Coinage of Silver Resumed.  Denver (Colorado) Mining Reporter.  Upon the closing  of the   Indian  mints in ISO',  to  the free  coinage  of silver  rupees,  tlie  government,  who had accumulated quite a stock  of  gold,   decreed   that   the  rupee  should be considered as the equivalent of 1!) /. English pennies in gold,  and that all rupees brought to  the  mints would be exchanged for gold  coin at that figure, which was the  equivalent  of -IS-1- cents  American  currency.    All rupees so redeemed  were at once  melted down to bars  and sold for gold at tho commodity  value of silver at the time of sale,  and all gold so obtained was added  to tho redemption fund and used to  buy'more  rupees.    Of course  this  produced more or less  contraction  of the rupee circulation, and resulted in  something  of  a loss  to  the  government;   as    the    commodity  value  of   silver   was   always   less  than   its    coinago   value.    But   ifc  was     believed     that      this     loss  would   be   easily  borne  if fluctuation   in the value   of  the   rupee  could be stopped, and if gold could  bo forced  into  circulation.     However, very few silver  coins  were���  after the first  few  months  of  the  new    regulations���offered- for  redemption, only such in fact "as  represented   net   payments   abroad;  and as the general balance of trade  lias   been  uniformly  in   favor   of  India, such were light.   After seven  years of trial, the government has  ^ .been forced to abandon the scheme,  and is now coining rupees as fust as  ic was awhile ago  engaged  in  destroying them:    This is ono  of the  circumstances that have caused the  price of silver to advance.    The de-  maud*for silver coinage in India is  now said to be-so* strong- that  the  government has been compelled* to  resume rupee   coinage  to  prevent  financial disaster.     In other words,  the efforts to introduce gold coinage  among the people of India is so far  a failure.    , .   Dowie Again in Trouble.  London, December 17.���The reverend William De Ronden Pos is  taking legal action against John  Alexander Dowie, the zionist of  Chicago, claiming that he was  libeled in tlie issuo of "Leaves of  Jlealing" of October Kith in which  the reverend Mr. Pos is accused of  fraud and immorality. Counsel for  the plaintiff describes Mr. Dowie as  a British subject and said ho was  now in Paris on his way to Switzerland, and asked for the court's permission-,to serve a writ out for its  jurisdiction. Leave was granted  subject to Mr. Dowie having liberty  to appeal against the order.  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAl> OFFICE, TORONTO.

T.  of the British suggestion still fails  to show that it is in any sense material.   As already  stated, it appears to be nothing- more than the  elimination     of    an    explanatory  phrase which in no degree affects  the action proposed in  the  section  of the   agreement   to   which   the  amendment applies.   Thus the action is left to stand by itself without a  statement of reason  which  would' even qualify or limit  the  action, which in this case relates to  the punishment of the Boxer leaders.    Consequently   it   is   believed  here that this disagreement will be  merely   temporary   and  the most  serious consequence be another delay at a moment  when  the  worst  phase of the negotiations seems  to  have passed safely.
