 THE LAW AND THE LAW COURTS  More Expert Evidence.  All of 3*_s_erday was taken up in the  hearing of the wise for tlie defence in  Kelly vs. Hall Mines, and H. E. Croasdaile,  F. Fletcher, Randolph Bruce and M. S.  Davys were examined. Their evidence  went to show that to operate such a  tramway a right-of-way 200 feet in width  was required. Mr. Fletcher's evidence as,  an expert was objected to on the ground  that he was not an engineer. Mr. Fletcher however stated that he was a qualified civil engineer.  The evidence taken J. IT. Bowes proceeded to address the court on behalf of  tlie defence, and cited authorities to show  that whore a company was not acting  mala lido tlieir engineer was the .judge of  what wasor was not requisite for thepro per  construction of legitimate works. About  ���1:30 p.m. his lordship wished him to touch  on the point as to whether the aerial ,  tramway now in operation was the kind  of tramway contemplated by the Companies Act of Incorporation Mr. Bowes  said that he had understood that the defence had agreed not to press this point,  and that consequently he was rather  taken by surprise. Eventually adjournment was taken until this morning at  10:30 when the point in question will be  argued.  Rossland Sitting Cancelled.  The sitting of the supreme court, which  was to have taken place in Rossland at  the close of the present assi/,e has been  cancelled. There is now no prospect of  completing the business of the present  assize before Saturday and this will barely allow justice Drake time to reach the  .coast'for ths sitting of the full court,  which has been set for next week.  tttt��  THURSDAY MORNING, JUNE 15,-1899/  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.

In the familiar old case of Dunlop vs.  Haney a''motion was made yesterday before justice Drake to have the case dismissed for want of prosecution. V The application was not granted, but an order  was made that the plaintiff go to trial at  Vancoliver on the 27th inst. The mineral  ground over which the parties to this  suit are contending has so far occasioned  more work for.' lawyers'.than most mineral claims iii Kootenay have occasioned-  for working .miners', and as yet very little  progress appears to have been made towards a settlement.

Poiucare had requested the  president to grant him until tomorrow to  form a, cabinet, as he had been unable to  see certain .statesmen whom he i.s desirous of consulting.  M. Poincare is continuing his efforts to  form a cabinet but meets with numerous  difficulties. He has been especially-desirous of having'M.^ Bourgeois,-M. Kraut.*  and Delcasse in the ministry. M. Bourgeois declines to abandon his mission at  The Hague. 31. Delcasse declines to take  anything but the foreign office portfolio,  while M. Poiucare wants him.at the ministry of tlie interior or the ministry of  marine, and M_ Kraut*, raises difficulties  concerning the Dreyfus trial, pointing  out that he has discussed the matter with  M. Casimir-Perrier. *���'  It is ������ understood that several other  prominent men have refused to enter the  cabinet. These rebuffs are likely to discourage M. Poiucare, who is modest aud  diffident and is inclined to steer clear of  political troubles.  Kruger is Defiant.  Pretoria, June 14.���The Volksrad luis  resolved to accept president Kruger's  franchise, proposals and to refer them to  the people before putting them into  operation. President Kruger, in thanking the Raad, said that in these troublesome times they could not know what  was going to happen. , England, he said,  had not made one little concession and he  could not give more. He reminded the  Raad that Germany had always stood by  them. AVar, he asserted, he did not want,  but he would not relinquish anything  more.  Transvaal's Gold Output.

THE CRANITI^jlESUIVIES WGEK  Union Wages Will Be Paid.  Work will be resumed at the Granite  mine today and the men employed Avill  be paid the 'iinion scale of Avages. This  result has not been secured by tiny conference between the Duncan mines and  the miners' union, but is tho working out  of the policy of the Duncan Mines Company in letting a contract for such work  as the company desires to have performed  at the property. This contract was secured by Fi. Mo.Carty, who is a member of  the miners' union,  the work was let is  is said.that McCarty's arrangement AA'ith  the company is such that he is to have as  much Avork as he can perform for one  month, Avith the oi'tion of renewing .the  contract from month to month. Under  this arrangement contractor MeCarty  will-take eight miners and two muckers  out to the Granite "tomorrow, Avho Avill  work eight-hour shifts and be paid $3.50  and $3 per day respectively.  It is said that the difficulty at the  Royal-Canadian mine Avill be surmounted  in the same Avay. Contracts for Avork  have been offered on this property also,  but so far have not been accepted. It is  likely, hoAvever, that a contract Avill be  signed Avithin a day or tAvo for considerable 'work, in Avhieh case the Royal Canadian Avill be., reopened at the union  scsile of AA'ages. The officers of the union  are uot shoAving any disposition to split  hairs, and the prospect of a settlement  Avith local properties  is considered good.  YR. E.. Burns .Missing.  R. E.

THE TOWN AND THE DISTRICT  The Yellowstone Mine Trouble.  J. J. McLennan,  avIio  was foreman at  the YelloAA'stone mine until the day before  yesterday, is in   Nelson.    He stated yesterday that the  trouble at the mine Avas  occasioned  by superintendent  Haul tain  discharging four muckers.    Of the eight;  teeii nien employed  underground tit the  mine   four   avc re   muckers.     AVhen   the  muckers had put in their eight hours underground  they AA'ent  to the boarding-  house, just as did the miners.    They did  not refuse to Avork;  they simply refused  to put in a two-hour shift on the surface  after A\rorking eight hours underground.  For this  they were  discharged, and the  foreman was instructed to hire others to  take their places, the new men to Avork  eight hours only.    The foreman told the  superintendent that the ineii discharged  Avere good men, as  good as could be got,  but he refused to  re-employ them.    The  ���miners and  the  foreman  then  told him  they did not  think  the four discharged  men were, beiug  treated fairly, and they  quit work.    Yesterday a conference Avas  held betAveen the  officers  of the miners'  union    and     superintendent    Haul tain,.

Daily Edition. ::��� Fikst Year, No 138  AVkeklv Edition   Skvknth Ykak, No. :.()  The Miner postures as the mouthpiece  of the "respectable" element  in  Kelson,  but its utterances  sound much like  the  ravings of the  wilcl-eycd. ,iinar<.hist  ancl  the labor thug..   Yesterday  it" said that  premier Semlin   aud his  cabinet  .should.  ** i *>  not only be kicked out of office,'but some.  of them should-he kicked into the Pacilic.  Such utterances are attempts" at intimi-"  elation, aud are therefore unlaAvful. We  hold that the five .Canadians in premier  Seniliu'scabiiiet are entitled to protection, and timidly suggest, that chief-justice Selous or associate-justice 'Jowett * be  empowered to SAvear in a sufficiently  large force of .s2-uci.1l constables "to pi-o-  tect them from the laAvless 3Iiner and its  bloodthirsty editors. ' <-  -  TiiFi mine owners and mine  managers  Avho can get down  off the pedestal  oil  which somauy of thom haA*c climbed, are  -beginning to realize that public opinion  is strongly opposed to their action,  and  the utterances  of  their  newspaper and  legal mouthpieces.    They are also beginning to realize that business men AA'ill not  have the interests of tlie country put in  jeo]lardy  merely  to  gratify a lew self__  opinionated  men  -who by chance  have  been made managers of mines.    The business men   of   Southern   Kootenay have  held up many of these iii.n for years, and  thoy   do not   intend to til Ioav  them  to  cither ruin the country by an indefinite  stoppage of Avork, or by the importation  of  cheap  labor from   Kafctcrn  Canadian  mines.    British  Columbia  and  its  business men have been  kind to these  alien  mine managers and will -land  but little  nonsense at their hands.  Kootenay so long as they can maintain  tlieir dividends." Tp do. this they Avould  be content to flood Kootenay Avith cheap  labor. The merchants of Kootenay Avill  not have much difficulty in "making up  tlieir minds whether their oavu, or the  interests of Kootenay as a whole, lie in  fche direction of furthering this policy of  tlie mine OAvners or not.  TUJ-.TKJH_>*_���. has boon informed, upon  what    may   bo    considered   as   reliable  authority, that the members of the mine  owners combine, Avhohavu the interests  of Kootenay so much at heart, arc considering a scheme foi-the importation of  cheap labor into  Kootenay  to  take the  places of the striking miners.      It is further said  tliat   negotiations   are   being  made Avith the Canadian Pacific Raihvay  Com2)any for the  Livinspo-lafcion at half  fares of all men engaged in the east for  cin2)loyment in the niines.    These cheai>  miners are to be engaged in Nova Scotia,  and at Sudbury, Ontario, where the rate  of wages for miners is  $2 per  day and  less.    The plan of the- mine OAvners coin-  bine is to offer these men $2.50 per day.  It matters   little   for present purposes  ���whether'this scheme is carried into effect  or not, but the fact  that sucli  a scheme  is seriously considered by .the 'members.  Of the mine-oAvners combine.. shows that-  tlie  members" of. this combine' l_;_vc_   no  concern   whatever   for   the   inthn-sts of  A Boston Romance.  Pacts are  sometimes more interesting  tis Avell as stranger than fiction.    A modern  Boston   marriage   recently resulted  from a  combination of romantic circumstances that make the ordinary society  novel dull,  stale ancl unjM'ofitable.    It is  not often a real romance is  attached to  the  modern marriage, but there  can be  such a  remarkable  combination,  for it  has occurred in all places of the world ���  in Boston.    Less than a  year ago a swell  young bachelor, breakfasting at his club,  began reading his morning mail, Avliich a  servant  considerately  brought   in  AA'ith  the first  course.    Among various invitations  *was one for  a dinner party in a  fashionable subui;b, but,the hostess' -name  Avas  utterly uhknOAvn to the.recipient.  Who  could this  lady be'?   J-Tad he ever  seen her?    No,  he thoughtYnot, yet the  note AA'as  so eh regie and the address all  right,  so fearing   to make a blunder the  young  gentlemansaid   it. was bettor  to  accept than to offend some one whom ho  had probably met in his various Avander-  ihgs,.andh.e "would go.   The night of the  dinner he therefore presented himself at  "the house designated,Tint pnly to find his  hosts utterly strangers and they  eciually  surprised to see a gentioman A\rho had not-  been   invited.    A few  explanations  foi-*  lowed, to the mutual amusement of guest  aud host, i'or it seems the note of acceptance had puzzled the latter quite as much  as the iirvitation had the guest.    But, as.  it pleasantly turned out, both Avere soon  iu possession of those clues to  common  acquaintances by Avhieh the elect of Boston  society    band    together,   and     the  "wrong"  guest avus  cordially given  the  2**rettiest girl in tlie party,  and avIio happened to be the   hostess* niece,   to take  out   to  dinner.    Tho accpiaintance thus  begun  iu an anti-Bostouese fa-shion, was  continued   through   the    summer,   aud,  -Avheii-a-fo-M���weeks-ago cvclia fining���wedding took place Avith this young man and  young lady for chief actors, the conventional, and   Braliininical   rules   of   Boston   society  receiA'ed  a   shock  that  did  them   a heap of good.    Kate sometimes  resorts   to devious   Avays to  bring  true  hearts together,  and in spite of  it being  a   selfish,   yractical   age,   romance  still  flourishes in it.  Ball Games Yesterday..

CURRENT RATE OK INTEREST PAID  AN EPISODE' OF WESTERN WARFARE.  The Sibley scouting expedition is one of  the bravest episodes ih Western warfare.  CaptainVR W. Sibley, now of tlie Second  United States cavalry* is famous among  the army in the West for his daring as a  scout   in the   Sioux campaign.    In   the  summer of 1870,   after Sitting Bull   aud  his   thousands   of   Sioux   warriors  had  swooped   down   upon   General   Custer's  force in the valley of the Little Big Horn,  and had annihilated every white   in the  valley, the savages stole away aud went  into camp miles distant, among the vast  region   of barren   hills   and   sagebrush.  General Terry and his army Avere on the  north.    General Crook and his force were  more than   100 miles to the south.    The  Sioux, some G000 strong,   were in secret'  camp in a valley among the trackless hills  and valleys between the two generals iind  their forces.    The slaughter of troops under general Custer 'and the unusual mili-  ���tary skill of Sitting Bull aud the savagery of the Sioux   made brave   men timid  and headstrong   scouts  thoughtful.    No  one knew how far the Sioux were camped  from the two forces, how many warriors  the chief had or what their plan of operations were.  As days passed the situation became  more grave. General Crook had to know  the .location of the Indians and the routes  to and from there. Lieutenant Sibley,  whoihad done some creditable, scpiitiujg  l_wi_ IvkiMws the^ndnvuS". nvays Bfairly .well,"**  s**.olurifeered*to^  _"i"."".*'^_". i"y"i-,��i.-��,\ yp'^ . ��� ", ���Si"*'"'.*_"��.-f._^^.".-B��J,.'s��'w��S4  riiifeaiiclous'"' tiha&tak'hiKSvlijcfei^  i*lK\rfeti"after-Ifonsidcirafeton ?of the.\y  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on S!*ag*uay, U.

It Avas at the fust break of dawn when  the horsemen Avere pushing their jaded  horses as best they could  up the mountain sides of the  Snake Mountains.    Tlie  Sioux had spent a precious hour in finding  the trail, and were now coining fast several   miles   in.the  rear on ��� their   fresh  Tpouies, yelling, screaming and shooting as  they   rode.     The   soldiers   forced  their  horses  through a pass among the rocks  and on into   a growth of timber on the  mountain side, and forded a little branch  of the   Tongue river.    The Sioux weze  coming on faster, yelling and shooting at  times.    Some of the Avarriors had spurred  their broncos  ahead and were trying to  flank the detachment on the right.    By a  supreme effort the soldiers reached the  heavy timber.*   They tied their horses in  a second, aud lay doAvn among the fallen  logs and  behind the horses, resolved to  sell their lives as dearly as possible.    Fortunately, they had an abundance of cartridges.    In another moment the fighting  AAras oil in dead earnest.   The Sioux Avere  coming like painted demons up the steep  and rocky grade of the narroAV pass. Tlie  soldiers had a good vieAV of the pass, and  they kept up a continuous discharge of  bullets  into  the   swarm   of   advancing  Sioux.    A dozen Indians fell in the first  two minutes.  "Make every ball count; keep your  nerve and expect no quarter," shouted  lieutenant Sibley to each man as he  dodged from tree to tree. He then lay  behind a log and made plans Avith scout  : Gruard for a possible escape for the detachment. The barrels of the carbines  greAv so hot from the firing that the sol-  Vdiers could scarcely load them. The Indians had older and sloAver-fire guns. At  length a warrior of some importance fell  dead from liis horse just as he; came up  the grade Y of the pass.

The firing was'to continue as long as possible. The purpose  Avas to deceive the Sioux, who, seeing the  horses and camp outfits still there, Avould  not knoAV that behind the cloud of powder, smoke, and the trees and logs, the  soldiers Avere slowly disappearing among  the mountains.  Immediately tlie hostilities were renewed, and, amid a flame and a pattering  of bullets among the timber and on the  rocks, the detachment sloAvly melted  away. Seven men in the detachntent  Avere shot dead that early morning. Two  had crawled to the rear and Avere just  about to get behind the rocks when'stray  bullets felled them. The men waited  about ten minutes between one another's  departure to attempt escape by retreat.  The men avIio remained on the firing line  kept ceaselessly at work Avith their hot  carbines, in spite of blistered fingers and  palpitating hearts. Lieutenant Sibley  A\*as the last to leave the line of battle,  and when he had eraAvled back and joined  his surviA'ing comrades among the rocks  he ordered tliree niore volleys. Then the  soldiers  scrambled'over  rocks  and  ran  down the main part of Tongue river like  madmen. At tho same moment the Sioux  made a rush upon the supposed line of  the detachment and carried'the position.  One may imagine their disappoinment  AA'hen' they found twenty-six dead or  dying horses, a lot of rations and a good  camp outfit. They scalped the dead  soldiers and, gathering up their own  dead, went back doAvn into Hie A'alley.  The famous sub-chief White Antelope  was killed that morning.  The story of the hardships the sur-  A'ivors of the Sibley scouting expedition  endured during their retreat to general  Crook's camp is a dreadful one, but in the  end all managed to reach the goal.   ���-i=>?72>-(=}-e3-  'tz3-(=)'C3-  m  t=3't=3-(z3.c=3-p3V^).^.

The savages seemed to rise by  [the score from behind every bush, to leap  j by the hundreds froin the ground. A  [dozen sentinels, less than half a mile  [aAvay, whooped and yelled as a signal to  J the camp below.

But a faint  hope   existed   that   the   soldiers  might  reach the   rocky and timbered foothills  over to the  Avest.

A business woman from San Francisco,  Mrs. Tcniiaii- by name,, i.s now endeavoring to track lier missing manager through  this country. JIe i.s variously known as  Bruce and White. It appears tliat she  was going from San Francisco to Los Angeles for her health with her mother, her  business manager, Bruce, accompanying  them. On the way, according to Mrs.  Teimant's story, lie levanted with her  valises, containing over $2,000 in money  and about $3,000 worth of jewels. He  came north, picking up a lady friend on  the way. Mrs. Tenna.nt went after hi in  and tracked the pair as far as Spokane,  where she swore out a warrant for liis arrest, but the man had gone on to Kootenay. lie came back from Rossland to  Northport to get a trunk that was being  sent after him, but for some reason the  police tliere neglected to arrest him. Hc  is supposed to have then come through  Nelson and gone up the lake. On Thursday last Mrs. Tennant was in Nelson enquiring for Bruce and her "jewels, leaving  town on Friday. The man is now somewhere in the Lardo country, and the proA'ineial police are after him.
