Four New Veins Discovered.
Auother important strike was made on
the Granite group on Saturday, one which
greatly enhances the value ot the property. No less than four new veins were
discovered while driving a crosscut on
the Red Rock claim for the purpose of
obtaining depth for stopes wliich already
had been proved. Tbe four veins lie
within sixteen feet of one another, and
aro all of quart/.. The first, where crosscut, showed .111.1 eight inches wide and
carries visible free gold, the second i.s
eighteen inches wide and also shows free
gold, the third, which is four inches wide,
shows mineral,'and the width of the
fourth has not yet been determined.
Samples of the ore ace being assayed and
the result will be known today. The existence of these veins was unsuspected
as they do not come to the surface but
are overcapped by country, rock. This is
tbe second strike ou the Granite group
since R. C. Campbell-Johnston was appointed consulting engineer. Readers of
■This Tribune will remember that a short
time back ground sluicing operations on
the Nevada disclosed a new vein, a sample
assay of-whieli subsequently gave returns
of $102 a ton..
The mine generally is looking extremely
well and the ore body in the Granite has
proved its continuance with depth, the
horse that appeared in the Drummond
shaft having been completely got rid of.
The upraise from No. 2 level to No. 1 level
from the above shaft is all in ore, and in
No. 1 level upraises are being driven every
seventy feet for the purpose of stoping
ore for the stamp mill and they are all in
good ore. The erection of the twenty-
stamp mill, wliich is being put iii by the
AVilliam .Hamilton Manufacturing Company of Peterborough, Ontario, started
yesterday. D. J. McNally is the foreman
in charge of construction for the company. .
Will Wait for the Water.
A meeting of the directors ofthe Kamloops Placer Mining Company was held

was learned that on the advice of H. R.
Bellamy and W. Wilson of Woodstock,
Ontario, who represent the eastern
shareholders, it Avas decided not to start
work" for a week or two, the water being
still too high. Messrs. Bellamy and Wilson returned on Sunday from a visit to

Victoria, July 10.—The following appears in the Globe .this afternoon: The
Globe is in a position to announce that
arrangements have almost been perfected
for a coalition between the opposition
and tlie government, wliich arrangement
will obviate the necessity of a general
election. Unless all present plans be
changed.'Mr. Martin's successor will be II.

Victoria city. Two -other members of
the opposition Avill be given portfolios

with the Way she answers her helin, and
her Cliiiekness in the /stays. While
it is impossible to .fully" guage tlie
qualities of the clip challenger*
at present, her supporters believe she will
fulfil all expectations, unless she encounters heavy weather while crossing the
Atlantic and strains her exceptionally
light hull.
The management of the Noonday mine
are putting more men to work daily.
Five miners went up. to the mine on Sunday and no idle men are left in town. Up
to date considerably over 150 tons have
been sacked at the mine and the daily
output is increasing. Two car loads a
week, forty tons, is what the lesses ex-
poet to ship.
Nothing new is happening around the
Four-mile mines. The surveyors are still
busy around the Wakefield laying out
the site for the new concentrator. The
right-of-way for their tramway is about
cleared. All trees have been cut down
for fifty feet on each side of the tram
line, which is 6000 feet in length.
A few men are at.work on the " Willa,"

Rioting in London.
Windsor, Ontario, July 10.—Forty local militiamen left this afternoon for
London hi response to a call from the
district officer for troops to aid in quelling the street car riots there. It is believed that the presence of the troops

any actual fighting.
Grand -Duke George Dies.
St. Petersburg, July 10.—Grand duke
George, brother of the e/ar is dead. He
was born April 7th, 1851, and was in ' ill
health for a number, of years, suffering
froin consumption. The heir apparent
died at the imperial palace in the Cau-
Lively Board of  Trade Meeting.
At a fairly well attended meeting of
the South Kootenay m Board of Trade,
which was held last evening the majority
of the. members present voted against
the local board taking any part in the
conference of the boards of trade of
Kootenay and Yale which i.s to take place
in Rossland next month. The chairman,
however, did not catch all the votes and
declared the division a tie. He then
gave the casting vote in favor of the
board being represented and refused all
demands for the yeas and nays.
When the meeting was called to order
John Houston was voted to the chair but
before any new business was reached J.
Roderick Robertson, president of the
board, arrived and the chairman retired
in his favor. After J. J.-. Campbell, had''
been admitted to membership the meeting proceeded to discuss matters in connection with the proposed board of trade
The first resolution on the question
was offered by John A. Turner who
moAred "that the motion to represent the
board at the joint meeting of the boards
of trade at Rossland, which Avas passed
at the last meeting of the board be rescinded, aud that this board be not represented at the joint nieeting of the
boards of trade." This was seconded by
John Houston.
Frauk Fletcher asked for the reason
for the motion to rescind. He thought
that it was childish.
• J. Roderick Robertson called John
Houston to the chair and took the floor
in opposition tP the motion. He asked
for some "explanation. He said that he
had been appointed a delegate against
his wishes but that the board having
gone so far in the matter he considered
that it .would be an act of discourtesy to
the other boards to withdraw at the;pre-
sent stage. He moved in amendment
that the board maintain its present position in.the matter and added that if it

meeting, and if Sir. Turner Avas present
he should have been able tp grasp the
meaning Pf it.

on the'question after which the di vision

ten or eleven against but the cliairiiiail
declared the A'pte a tie and said that lie
would ghre a casting A^pte in favor of liis

Several ilieinbers protested against the
decision of tlie chair and. asked for yeas
and nays, but the ehairiiia.ii refused to
■liavo the vote recorded,
John A. Turner—l)o you rule that the
yeas and nays cannot be taken?
J. Roderick Robertson—-The chair has
ruled that the amendment lias beeu
S. S. Taylor endeavored to set the
chairman right. He said tliat he had
voted in favor of his amendment but he
thought that parliamentary rules governed the deliberations pf the board
which A*ery clearly provided that di\-isions
could be recorded.
The chairman replied that he had not
a copy of the constitution and that Avithout it lie did not prpppse tp give way.
Jphn. A. Turner said that in calling fpr
the yeas and days he contended that tlie
vote Avas not correctly taken by the
chairman. There Avere Several other protests against the arbitary ruling of the
chair, but as the chairman persisted in
his refusal to take tlie yeas and nays the
motion Avas alloAved to drop.
The chairman then read tlie list of
questions which the council of the board
had suggested should be discussed at tlie
board of trade conference. They were
briefly (1) the encouragement of the lead
mining industry by increased duties upon
lead products; (2) the encouragement, of
sih'er-lead smelting by tbe admission,
free of duty into Canada of lead .bullion.,
smelted   in   Canada and  refined   in ■ the
United States; (:l) the desirability of increasing the representation of Kootenay
in the house of commons; and (I) the
consideration of the eight-hour law and
its eifect upon the  district.
S. S Taylor said that he would object to
the consideration of the eight-hour law.
In the first place the eight-hour law had
been passed by the legislature, it was a
.reform in the labor laws of the province,
and it was well known in the history of.
all countries that when any such reforms
were once passed they were never repealed. To set up a. discussion upon the
question of the repeal of the law was
therefore attempting the ' impossible.
Such legislation Avas neA'er A'aried or
materially amended. Another objection
Avas that the board in taking up the
question invited a clash with the interest
in the community known as the labor
interest. It Avas stepping in between
two factions and would thereby
destroy the .usefulness of the
board. The question was also at
the present time a political one.
For this reason the board of trade
could not take the question up without
stultifying itself and injuring the usefulness of the board so far as the general
public Avas concerned. He thought the
delegates should be instructed not to discuss or A*ote for or against any current
political question.
J. Roderick Robertson said that he
would like to discuss the question, and
called upon John Houston to take the
chair. He said that he did not regard
the eight-hour question as settled and for
that reason desired to have it discussed.
He said that the measure had been put
through the legislature at the extreme
end of the sessipn.
Johu A Turner here took the point of
order that the president Avas talking
Tlie chairman held that the point was
well taken and instructed the speaker
that he might tell the members Iioav
the operation of the law affected him as
a mine owner.
The president-theu proceeded by say-

when the question came up of appointing
delegates to represent the Nelson board
it never occurred to him that tlie delegates would have their tongues tied so
far as not being able to express their
opinion upon any question which might
come up. At the time no such idea was
suggested. He had expressed at the tinie
a desire to be relieved of the office- of
delegate and he would inform the "members that he would probably exercise his
right of appointing a substitute to proceed to Rossland in his place.
The question   Avas  then   put  and   the
.motion instructing  the  delegates   to let
the  eight-hour  question  se\rerely  alone
..was.carried on a vote of eleven to six.
John A. Turner then moAred that the
three other questions recommended by
the council of the board for consideration
at the Rossland conference be struck out.
This was seconded by John Houston and
carried without any attempt at discussion.
John Houston then moved that the
secretary of the board be* instructed to
inform the postmaster-general by Avire
that the Crow's Nest Pass railway i.s
running daily trains, and that it is desirable that a, daily mail should be instituted. This was seconded by A. R. Sher-
AArood and carried.

3. 3. Campbeil reminded tlie board that
they had passed resolutions dealing witli
the lumber industry and lie expressed
the opinion that ifc would be difficult for
that questions Avliich affected the interests of the community Avere proper
subjects for discussion. His impression
was that the members of the dilfereiit
gpArernments w^ere glad to get tlie ideas
of boards of trades upon such matters.
S, S. Taylor in. reply said that tiiovo
was a 'difference between the ({iiestioii of
lead duities and the eight-hour law. Tlie
question of duties was an open question
in that the govern m0i.it..AvaS' pTcpiired to
adniit certain articles &ee and impose a
dttiiy upon others. Tlioro wits iiothing
fixed about it. With the eight-hour law
it was altogether different.- A dominant
party had taken a definite stand and
luado it a 'political issue of the party.
No other member wishing to speak,
the motion was then put and carried on
a division of 1'3 to (5, Avhicli struck the
eight-hour law question off the list.
John Houston then moved that if the
question of the eight-hour law was referred to the conference of the boards of
trade or put to a vote that the delegates
from Nelson be instructed to vote against
tlie consideration of the question and refrain from speaking upon it.
A, IT. Kelly opposed this motion also,
lie said that he knew it would be useless
to speak against it, but lie regretted tliat
so many members held opinions differing
from Avhat he considered made for the
best interests of the country.
At this Stage of the proceedings Frank
Fletcher consulted the secretary as to
the right of certain members to vote.
The consultation was carried on in whispered tones. but the mission

with derisive laughter, and some,

And Award Tenders.
At the meeting of the public Avorks
committee yesterday afternoon Campbell & Deacon's tender for the laying of
sewer pipe Avas accepted. They offered
to lay all sizes of pipe for (S8 3-5 cents
per foot and $3 pei- cubic yard extra for
the removal of rock encountered in digging trenches. The other tenders were :
Josias Thompson, 75 cents a foot for 12-
inch pipe, Oil cents for 0-inch, 00 cents for
S-inch, and $3 per cubic yard for removing rock; and If. IT. Macdonald, SO cents
for 12-inch pipe, 7:*5 cents for 9-ineh, 70
cents for S-inch and $0 per -yard for removing rock.
The city engineer reported that he had
been over the ground where  the electric
light Hume is to be   laid, and   on   his recommendation   the offer  of McBeath &
Peters for its  completion   was  accepted.
Their offer amounted to  $1580—$200 for
finishing the grading and $13S0  for the*
carpenter  work, the  Avhole  to  be* completed by August 1st. ■'■■'•*:'■'.'
A letter Avas received from G. HolbroOk -;
and John  Croft, city scavengers, asking:
that a regular dumping ground be allotted
them, and also as to whether the city intended te take  PArer the  scavenging  pr
npt. The Aviitors laid the blame of dumping garbage in authorized places on the
drivers pf store wagons.    This statement
was receiA'ed Avith some incredulity, and    .
it was also pointed out that the  scavengers had receiA'ed permission to dump on
C. P. R. land not far from the Hall Mines
road.    As tliere was some reason to believe that the  Gas  and   Coke  Company
niight burn the refuse, it/was decided to
take no action till  the company's representatives  had  been  seen,   and  in   the
meantime the scaA'engers aviII be notified
only to dump their garbage on the ground
provided for that purpose.

"Thomas F. Bayard avIio, as our embassador in EnglaMd, laid the foundatiGlis arid
itccohjiplislicd the marvelous work of pre-
pa-ring the way for a grand revolution in
po|.)iil;tr  sentiment on   both sides of the
Atlantic which has brought   the Knglish-
spenking nations back to back.''     Is that
so?    It  is true   that  Thomas F.   liayard
was abject   in   his   toadyism,   but   then,
what about einbu.ssa.dor Phelps, and   before him, James Hussell Lowell?    We beg
to  say   that   the  action   of  one   George
Dewey   in Manila   bay about  a year ago
had more to do   with England's desire to
stand   dos-it-dos with  the United States
than  did all   the embassadors   that ever
our country had in Great Britain.    Prior
to  that day, when  the war with Spain
was talked of, Great Britain behaved very
splendidly.    The press and  statesmen of
continental   Europe had  been trying for
three  years   to  "isolate Great  Britain,"
and when  they in chorus joined in sympathy with Spain, Great Britain, knowing them like ti book, and knoAA'ing* very
well that if Cuba  lay within  sixty miles
of the coast of Great Britain, Great Britain   Avould stop   the deviltries going on
there,  joined in earnest sympathy Avith
the   United   States.    'Up  to this time it
was   pure selfishness  on  her  part.    But
after that  performance of the American
fleet  in Manila  bay, a deeper chord Avas
touched.       Englishmen   talking   among
themselves said :    "There is a Nelson OArcr
there,  or a Drake,  or a  HoAvard.    They
They, are a crowd that will do to tie to."
And the  other performance off Santiago
harbor intensified that feeling.    The cannon-shots   from the  OlmypiaJ'- from the
Baltimore, fiom the Raleigh, the Boston,
the Brooklyn, the Oregon, the Texas, the
Iowa, the*Indiana aud the  little Gloucester  Avere   the   arguments  that touched
John Bull's heart, that stalwart old heart
that for a thousand years has beeu holding ships up to storms and to battle, and
it gave a .responsive, throb, and it Avas

This man has held office for a number of
years and never misses a chance to put

when he meets a government official or

hand and welcomes them as a lost brother

A Cabinet Wrecker.
Toronto News.
Premier Semlin's request for Hon. Joseph Martin's resignation is a justification for his exclusion from the Dominion
cabinet. There is in Hon. Mr. Martin's
record ample eA'idence of his public
spirit, but unfortunately he. does not
combine Avith that a temper fit for a
cabinet minister. His conduct at the
Rossland banquet, where he is-reported
to haA'e acted in a most insulting manner
to the guests, Avas an exhibition of the
turbulent spirit that controls the man
and makes it unwise to entrust to him
affairs of state that require delicate
handling. if 'every political question
could be settled by brute force Hon. Mr.
Martin Avould be an iuAralviable member
of a ministry. His fighting qualities are
superb. But statesmen must be able to
control themselves in order to succeed
in their efforts to advance the public interest, aud this unfortunately is beyond
the powers of Hon. Joseph Martin. If he
can so quickly disrupt the British Columbia cabinet, how could he have, been
restrained in the federal cabinet? From
a party standpoint the course adopted-
by sir Wilfrid Laurier in preferring Hon.
Clifford Sifton to Hon. Joseph Martin
Avas good tactics.

To which the head-master  replied ; "Dear Madam : So long as your  boy behaves well and his fees are paid  regularly, no inquiry will be made about  his antecedents."  In spite of the humor in his poems,  John G. Saxe was extremely sensitive to  being made fun of, as Richard Henry  Stoddard discovered. The two met one  day in Broadway, aud the old poet was  feeling in a particularly good humor.  "My son," he explained, "is doing better  than I expected. He is making a great  success." "How?" Stoddard asked. "He  has started a lumber-yard up in Albauy,"  Saxe replied. All out of his own head ?"  the younger man asked, and Saxe immediately left him in a huff.  One evening at a social function where  Sarasate was among the guests, a young  violinist had the bad taste to play one of  Sarasate's compositions with variations  of his own creation. The latter were iu-.  'appropriate'and inartistic, and jarred upon the ears of all.

"Some time ago," said the governor at a recent dinner, "a man came to  me and asked to be appointed to a minor  office. He was very 'hot' when I told  liiin he would have to stand the civil-service examination. 'Why, I have tried  the pesky thing,' lie said, 'and tliey  wouldn't pass me,' The liian had such  good backing that I told liinl to try the  examination again.' '-You have them  sized up noAvt sir,' I said, 'and you can go  through flying.' Today he caine to me  again, about the angriest politician in  Hev,' York. 'Do I get that office?' he demanded. 'Have you passed the examination?' I asked. 'Passed it!' he raved;  'how could I pass it when they asked me  the same old questions ?' "  Labouehere tells an amusing story of  how he did a good turn for a legal friend,  who, although accustomed to address  ���juries and judges, was afraid of the house  of commons. "One day, Avalking home  with him," says Labouehere, "I told him  that he should get over this curious  dread. A matter was coming under discussion whieh involved a good deal of  law.   .I said to him :    'If you like, I will  get up and speak against the government  view. You must jeer at me. I will complain of this, and suggest tluit a.s you are  an eminent lawyer you should express  your objections articulately, then you���  having prepared your speech���must get  up iind crush me.' This was arranged.  AVhen 1 laid dxiwu the law, he laughed.  I looked indignant. J went on ; hc uttered sarcastic 'Hear, hears.' On this I protested, Silt down, and invited liiin to reply to me. He got up and made an excellent speech."     The old duke of York, Avhose effigy  looks down from the top of the column in  St. James's park, was once commander-in-  chief, and frequently entertained fche officers under his command. On one occasion the empty bottles had accumulated  inconveniently, and the duke called to ii  servant: "Take away these marines!"  Now a distinguished officer of marines  was present. "May I ask your royal  highness for an explanation of that  phrase?" said the undaunted representative of the "sailors and soldiers, too."  The duke Avas the last man in the world  to take refuge behind his dignity as royal  highness, or even his exalted rank in the  service. "I wear a blue coat, and you  knoAV Avhore to find me," he had Avritten  to colonel Lennox, AA'hen there Avas a  quarrel between them, and he had "gone  out" AA'ith the colonel as if he had been  only plain major Dobbin. But on this  occasion  a readiness  of wit, Avhieh Avas  H. D. Ashcroft  BLACKSMITHING  AND EXPERT  HORSESHOEING  not usual Avith him, saved the situation.  "They have done their duty," he said,  "iind are ready to do it again. That's  Avhy I call 'em marines!"  His Power Will Last.  Toronto Telegram.  All theMacken/.ie-Maim-C. P. R. papers  hasten to write an epitaph over the alleged political tomb qf Hon. Joseph Martin. A government satisfactory to the  monopolies which inspire their newspapers in Ontario and the Avest to curse  the name of Martin will not be serviceable to the people of British Columbia.  It is possible that the surviving members  of the British Columbia goArernment may  be strong men, devoted to the public interest, and iu that case they will come in  for the criticism which has been aimed at  Joseph Martin. It is hard at this distance to measure the rights and wrongs  of the dispute over Deadman's Island,  which is said to be separating Mr. Margin  from the other members of the government. There seems to be a good deal of  force in Mr. Cotton's contention that the  laud, if it belongs to the province, should  be sold to the highest bidder. Mr. Martin seems to bec conforming to the local  sentiment which would utilize the island  for the establishment of a great industry.  If he retains his strength in Vancouver  he Avill still be in a. position to appeal to  the industrial element in British Columbia, and inside or outside the government  will remain a figure in provincial politics.  Keeps on Fighting.  Hamilton Herald.  Fighting Joe Martin ought to be happy  now. After fighting sill the enemies of  the British Columbia, government, iu  -which he is attorney-general, he is now  forced to fight the government itself.  FULL LINE OF  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  HUME.

One of the bridges is  1000 feet long. Part of the mill (tlie carriage, saw frame and planer) was sold  by Mr. Pjuchanan to manager llaiiltain of  the Y'ellowstone mine, which is located  near Salmo. The price paid for the Lavin  mill outfit was $2025. it i.s said to have  cost four times that sum. The Nelson  Saw and Planing Mills, Limited, purchased the horses and harness for $'350.  NELSON.  The promoters of the gas and coke  works arc still dickering with the Hall  Mines, Limited, for a site on that company's property. It is generally understood that the promoters of the gas and  coke company prefer to be near the  smelter for the reason that they expect  to quote a sufficiently low rate to the  Hall Mines for eolce as will ensure them  the business of supplying all the coke required. So soon as an agreement is arrived at with respect to the site work  . will be commenced at once. The coking  plant which the company will put in at  first will have a capacity of about 75  tons per day, which will be more than  sufficient to supply all demands ofthe  local smelter.  Sheriff Tuck will offer for sale in front  of his office this morning at 11 o'clock  tlie building and set of shoemakers' tools  belonging to Nicola Palorcia of Sandon,  which were taken iii execution at tlie  suit of 3.
