 DOMINION   DAY    CELEBRATION  SUBSCRIPTIONS AND COMMITTEES.  Manage. Waterman and assistant  manager Thompson are meeting with  great success in securing subscriptions  for the ninth annual celebration of Dominion Day at Nelson. Already the subscriptions amount to as much as the total subscriptions last year. Tliey report  that no single subscriber, so far, has  offered any objections to the action taken  by the nieeting that started the ball rolling. The lew who want a public meeting called have never yet subscribed a  doilar towards any public" function or  aided in any .way any previous celebration at Nelson. There is not likely to be  a celebration at any other town in southern Kootenay on that day. Iiossland  has heretofore celebrated Labor Day,  nnd will no doubt do so again this year.  Tlie following are the subscriptions secured yesterday:  Previously reported       California Wine Company   P. Burns & Co   Lawrence Hardware Company   Jacob Dover    H. Byers & Co   W. F.

London, May ���"><).���The letter addressed  by Conynghain Green, the British agent  at Pretoria, to Wynberg, president of the  Transvaal South African League, with  reference to the petition signed by 21,091  British subjects, iind addressed to the  queen, reads as follows :  " I have instructions to inform your  petitioners that their petition has been  receiving the serious consideration of her  majesty's government, aud without expressing an opinion at this stage of the  proceedings on the several allegations  contained in tlie petition, her majesty's  government cannot but express a general  feeling of sympathy with the memorial,  and is earnestly desirous of seeing a  speedy anil substantial change effected  in their petition.  "That the government refrains from  further reply to the petition at this  moment, is due to the fact that a meeting is arranged between a high commissioner and the. president of the republic,  at which it is expected these questions  with others now at issue between the  two-governments, will be discussed iu a  conciliatory spirit. Her majesty's government regards the agreement of the  president of the republic to meet the  high commissioner as an indication that  both the Volksraad and the government  of the republic are sincerely desirous of  arriving at a solution which will satisfy  the reasonable aspirations of the unenfranchised population."

The steainer International is now laying off getting her boilers cleaned and  repaired. She will be off the run for a  week, the Alberta taking her place.  J. C. Eaton and wife have left lvaslo  for Spokane.  The lvaslo <fc Lardo-Duncan Railway  Company are now rushing things, and it  looks as though they were going to make  some new move on their opponents. Monday night at <S o'clock another gang of  men under surveyor Holmes left lvaslo on  a special train over the Kaslo & Slocan  for the head of Trout Lake via the Arrow  lakes. This is the second party that has  left Kaslo during the last few days very  quietly and'mysteriously.  The steamer Alberta brings in gangs of  Italians on every trip for Bonner's Ferry,  nearly all of whom leave at once for the  scene of railway construction in the  Lardo.  Kootenay lake lias risen nine feet at  Kaslo so far. But the last few days being  cool, Kaslo river has gone down eighteen  inches.  It now looks as though the South Fork  wagon road would not be built this  summer. Messrs. Fleutot and Mansfield,  the directors of the Excelsior Mining  Company, do not seem satisfied with the  result of their mission to the Coast, the  government guarantee not being strong  enough. Tliey now want the citizens to  subscribe $4000 towards the cost ofthe  road, the company to pay the balance. If  this is not done, the company will make  a cheap trail, to do them for their own  purposes, until such time as the government is willing to go ahead with it.  The eight-hour law is still the leading  topic of discussion in Kaslo, and the final  action of the Sandon and Silverton  Miners'Unions is aAvaited. ���'*���  NEW   DENVER.

Saturday the Mountain Chief mine resumed operations, after being  idle for a  number of years.    Four men went up to  the property from New Denver to clean  out  the  workings  and get   things   into  shipshape,   preparatory  to  the  employment  of a   large number of'men.    The  Mountain  Chief is one of, the   pioneer  shippers  of the   Slocan, and has  today  large ore reserves.    In the early days it  contributed largely to  the prosperity of  New Denver, and  it will act as the same  important factor uoav.    It  is connected  with New Denver by a good wagon road,  which is to  be  cleaned out to make it  available for the liauling of supplies,'affording an excellent opportunity for the  local merchants to demonstrate their enterprise.   The new owners of the Mountain   Chief is  the  Manchester Smelting  Company,  Avho have   secured   it   under  bond   from  George   W.   Hughes.    They  mako  a specialty  of zinc  ores, and  the  product of the Chief carries  a high percentage  of the  desired  mineral.    There  are a number of ].romising claims in the  vicinity that will be materially benefitted  by.the working of the Mountain Chief.  Across Carpenter creek from the Mountain Chief, J. C. Bolander and J. Austin  have a good property in the Emma, upon  wliich they are now working. It is a dry  ore proposition, with a four-foot ledge,  Avell defined through tAvo claims. The  Avork now being done has this Aveek disclosed a nice chute of ore, Avliich giAres  exceeding high assays, and is A'ery similar to that on the Turn's group, near by.  This is adding another to the list of  healthy properties on' Goat mountain.  Ou. the Tunis group, Avest of the  Emma, tlie OAvners are busy Avith their  development and are continuing the  sacking of ore. They propose making a  test shipment in a.few-days of three or  four. tons. The ore aA*erages over '100  ounces.  Dining the last day or so the showing  on the .Neglected ha __���greatlyYimp.'OA:ed  steadily shipped to the Nelson.'smelter  and crude ore before long will'be hauled  doAvn from the mine. Two engineers  went up yesterday to inspect the Evening Star and brought down some rock  from the ledge wliich is four feet thick  anil looks most promising.  .J. 1_. Saucier, president of the Ross-  land-Vmir Mining and Development  Company, left yesterday for Kaslo. During his stay here he acquired of or his  company the Golden Ridge Fraction adjoining the Bruce group.    .  Will Back Up the Minors.  At a  public   meeting   held   in   Slocan  City on last Friday night  the. following  .resolutions Avere passed :  AVhorea-s certain mine owners have publicly announced  their intention of reducing the wages of all mine workers upon the taking ollect of the eight-hour law; and  whereas their reasons, as set forth in such announcement, for attempting such are either the result of selfishness or lack of sound reasoning, and show an unfairness  in attempting lo arbitrarily establish a reduced scale of  wages; and we further belicvu th .t well paid, healthful,  'nlclligeni workers inakc desirable residents of a country, and that huinanity and civilization in North America now demands better conditions and better wages for  its workers than prevail in Kuropcan and other countries, and that the government has done a commendable  act in establishing the eight-hour law in mining; unci  believing that the best interests of the country will be  promoted by the enforcement of the eight-hour law and  maintaining the regular rate of wages as heretofore paid  in mines.  Therefore be it resolved, that wc, the miners,, prospectors and citizens of Slocun City, hereunto subscribed,  pledge ourselves to abide by the actions of the ./liners'  Unions of the Slocan, and wc extend to them' our sympathy and support in their dibits to maintain the present,  scale of wages in the mines, and tliat we will not. work  for less nor pay less than the union rate.  The resolution's, as above, were ordered  sent to the different miners' unions in  Kootenay and to the press, and bear the  signatures of a committee appointed for  the purpose. The committee is A. E.  Teeter, It. M. Covington and J. E. Skinner.  ^eh*Ki_t^he:.jM  __*_.-/-.._   �� -.^0 .^r���i<'-l*l..L.."Y>,^Y.rL��.v_ umi#-  ���jyM-|?^tj>��_ |is Kfo$".��i$l  Balfour Def-at-d by; PiBcington.

It appears, however, tliat only one channel  is thus affected, and even if this does  close it means only that Aressels coming  from the south will have to take a roundabout course to enter the port.

The  present sitting of the courtis remarkable  by reason of the length of the criminal  docket, and the gravity of the offenses  recited in it. With the exception of one  case, which is of minor importance, all  come from outside points.  The grand jurors, Avhose names appeared in yesterday's issue, selected  W. A.

Vancouver News-Advertiser.  Tho  time litis assuredly  come for Dominion  legislation   to impose  reasonable  safeguarding    conditions,   requiring   at  least sufficient -proof of due qualification  in open court, upon the naturalization of  foreign  settlers in  this province.    There  is not the slightest doubt that by swearing,  practically   unchecked,   under   the  rough-and-ready system, large numbers  of Orientals���Chinese and Japanese���are  ..now acquiring rights of citizenship after  altogether inadequate residence and settlement in the province.    These Orientals  have recently been, and are being, naturalized  by.   hundreds,   though   many   of  elieni are undoubtedly  but recent incomers,  amongst whom  not a feAV  are   in  reality migrants, who make from and for  Japan    before   and    after   our   fishery  seasons.  The  hasty  and wholesale  naturalization, without  scrutiny, of Orientals of a  low grade, and this for  material reasons  only,  is rapidly  approaching,  if it haAre  not already reached, the dimensions of a  public scandal.    Yet sir Wilfrid Laurier  and liis colleagues  seem as usual regardless  of the .lust claims in   the matter of  tlie  ordinary  British citizenship of this  province.  Mr. Mclnnes  alone among  our British  Columbia members pf parliament on the  government side seems to be active in assertion  of the claims' for reasonable protection in this matter of the interests of  the masses of our white laboring population,  and . lie,   unfortunately, allows his  zeal  to outrun  his discretion, by asking  rather  too much, which  all'ords the  Dominion  government a ready way of escape Xrom action in the case.    Under existing circumstances the ordinary white  labor.of bur  province  stands at grave  risk of.being:swamped in the early future  by a vast  i nun ignition of sweated labor  from the Orient, which is already steadily displacing  the  .Canadian  worker in  nlany employments in'this province..  _   Meanwhile,  the' fact- that  this  cheap  /Mongolian labor is becoming abundantly  available is,  in   particular,  being freely  ������ advertised in England, as an inducement  i'oroutside capital to enter the province.  Thus, the prospectus of a recently organized and  already floated   hyduaulic  gold  mining  company in  Cariboo,  having an  authorized capital   of no less than ��350,-  000���we refer to the Cariboo Consolidat-  edj Limited���recently stated, as a special  ; hidu^enieut to  iuyestoi's,   thajj.

London. M*iy 3'tJi���John Morley js going  to lead tlie fight against the hero  worshippers and general Kitchener, the ob-  i|-ct of their adoration.   He  will do this  |;as a protest against the alleged deSecra-  | tion of the mahdi's tomb and the indig*  i:5ty shown his body when the proposal  Is made to vote a money grant to the sir-  1 dar.    In a recent speech delivered before  the   Sydney Liberals Morley made the  following reference to the matter, which  was roundly cheered:  "The mahdi was an Ai'ab who rose  against the misgovernment of the Egyptian ailthorities, but when the British  jook Omdurman they hacked off his  head, cut off his beard, and, according to  the statement of an artilleryman, the  head was placed inside an empty kerosene dan. '  "I suppose that before long it will'be as  much out of order to utter a word of  criticism about general Kitchener as it is  now to speak words of criticism about  the judges of our courts. At all events,  I intend to make a fight for it.  "It will be proposed  within  the  next  -few weeks that no special mark of honor  shall be shown  to the commander  who  Is i-|_w prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlii], B. C, ar.d  Dawson City, Yul^oq District.  admits that he is responsible for the  heinous transaction 1 have described. 1  myself shall vote that no mark of honor  sliall be bestowed upon any general who  is answerable for an act of barbarism so  deplorableaudso inexpressibly revolting."  The Dingley Tariff Caused it.  Washington, May .'30.���The problem  that involves the lumber trade with Canada, and whichisarelicof thofailuroof the  joint high commission, is realty the fruit''  of the Dingley tariff. .When the duty  on lumber imported into the United  States Avas increased from $1 to $2 per  1000 foot by the Dingley tariff bill the  Ontario government* in retaliation, put  an export duty on logs for the purpose  of compelling Americans, who own large  tracts of timber in Ontario, to move  their sawmills t, across the border, cut  their lumber on Canadian soil and  pay duty to .the United States. The  American lumbermen regard this as a  discrimination, because it practically  prohibits the importation of logs into the  United States, and they are asking the  president to retaliate by prohibiting the  importation of lumber.  Although not officially admitted here,  there is little doubt that our government  is being'inclined to these retaliatory considerations by the discouraging results of  the negotiations in London looking to  the clearing of the field for the reassembling of the joint.Canadian commission.  It is gathered that the British foreign  office, whieh had seemed inclined to meet  Mr. Choate's advances in the spirit of  compromise that promised well, has been  again influenced by Canadian opposition  to anything less than a concession of all  their demands, which has stopped all  progress.  An Expensive Monopoly Wiped Out.  Havana, May 30.���By civil order No.  S general Ludlow has annulled the so-  called "O'Reilly concession," Avhicli has  been a monopoly since 1704. Under this  concession the grantees hud the exclusive  right to. cart1 all beef from tho .^public  slaughter house to the butcher shops,'  and theu "collected 50 cents" a carcass  -from the butchers for such service.. As  there are iioav 213.9 cattle killed: every  day on an aveiuge, this gaA'e theni an'  incomo of $30,000 a year. For thd  last ten years the concession  has been owned by the countess of  Bucna Vista,_ of the celebrated O'Reilly  family, and a Dr. Duplcssis, and they.  have sublet it to a Senpr Canossa. The  lessee bears all the expenses of the Avork  and pays the owners' 20] per cent of his  gross receipts, so that the concessionaires  receiA'ed over $10,000 a year and rendered  no service for it. The lessee naturally  made his profit, Avhieh is estimated at  $12,000 a year, from his oavu statements.  In his order general LiuUoav has directed'  the city to perform this serA'ice, and has  left it to the courts to decide Avhether  under the treaty of Paris the commiss-  ionaries have any right for compensation.  iu the case of Hobbs vs. the Esquimalt &  Nanaimo Railway Company. Hobbs  bought from the company 100 acres of  land near Nanaimo, and by the company's  land commissioner's mistake no reserva-  tion of mineral and coal rights was made  in the agreement for the purchase. The  reservation was inserted in the deed, but  Hobbs objected and sued the company  for specific performance of contract.  Chief justice DaAMe decided against  Hobbs on the ground that the land commissioner had no authority to make such  an arrangement as appeared in the  agreement for purchase.  The full court differed to the extent of  holding that minerals other than coal  should not have been reserved in the  deed, but tluit coal Avas properly reserved.  Hobbs appealed to the supreme court,  which now.appears to decide in his favor  as to the coal. Further appeal Avill of  course be taken by the company to the  privy council. The coal in dispute is of  immense A'alue, the Extension mines, the  largest on the island, being partly on  this hind.  FULL LINE OF  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  PHAIR.  It. AV. MiicFiirliine. Yinir  .1. C.
