 TAMARAC MINEBEGINS SHIPPING
To the Hall Mines Smelter.
A carload of ore from tho Tamarac
mine, whieli is situate on Springer ereek
about four and a half miles from Sloean
City, has reached the Hall Mines smelter
at Nelson. One of the owners of the
Tamarac, Neil Gething, i.s in Nelson, and
in an interview stilted that from 75 to
100 men ;ire at work in niines and on
prospects iu the district tributary to
Slocan City. All the miners employed
underground are receiving $.'-S.50 for the
eight-hour day. Six ineii are at work on
th<> Tamarac, II on the Arlington, (i on
the Two Friends, Iii on tlie levelling Star
No. S, () ou the Black lYineo, and the
Others are scattered throughout the district. Heretofore the men who sought
to acquire bonds on Slocan City claims
were.men with very limited means, and
the result was that little actual work
was done. Now the men who are acquiring bonds make .substantial cash payments and have nioney to carry on
development work. Mr. Gething, who
has been in the Slocan since 189.1, says
that the Slocan City end of Slocan dis-
triefc\will yet be a large producer, and
that business tit Slocan City is on a substantial and permanent basis.

Mining News From Silverton.
Silverton, June 11.—Dr. Bell-Irving,
one, of |the directors of the Comstock
mines, arrived in town this morning and
ieft at oiice for the mine. This property
has been lying idle some months. It is
said to' start up as soon as the road up
Pour-Mile receives its spring cleaning out
but,as no one here knows what work will
be done, or when, on the road, the starting up of the mine and mill for some
time seems doubtful. Some work, $500
■worth, has been done ou the road, clearing about one-third of the way up to the
Comstock.
IS. B. Fraser, local manager for the Vancouver <fc British Columbia General Exploration Company, limited, returned on
"Wednesday, from England. Since Mr.
Fraser left here last fall he has visited
South Africa to examine some mining
properties for a company in the Transvaal. He speaks enthusiastically of the
good tinies in store for that land when
their political-, differences are adjusted.
He will begin work, here for his company
in a short while.   *
The Wakefield mines have had to send
to Sandon for men to "work arouud that

Vkjtohia, July 11.--Mirschull Cohen
talked like a father to. tho board of trade
at its annual meeting today, his text
being that the mining committee of the
board have not the experience necessary
to deal intelligently with the subject and
that the 'mining laws of tlie province
must be thoroughly revised before it can
attract English investors. He explained
in detail that tho niines should pay more
taxation for the benefit of the whole
community; that no secrecy should be
allowed concerning tlieir operations,
but that particulars of their
output should be regularly published; and that charges for the incorporation and registration of companies should be higher.
lie held that the mining revenue ofthe
province was absurdly small, last year's
revenue being from West Kootenay $32,-
0.00: Cariboo, $10000; and for all the rest
of the province $2023. He wanted to
know how in the face of these paltry
figures the people in England were expected to believe that we have got Avealth
in minerals. He advocated the compulsory working or forfeiture of claims, and
a charge of $50 a year for each claim.

NELSON.
Max Johnson   was  sued   in   the  small
debts court yesterday by L. MacKay to
recover the sum of $17.50 which  ho said
*was owing to him for  services   rendered
as clerk in Johnson's store on Hall street.
It was a peculiar case in that MacKay said
that he went to work for Johnson Avithout any agreement being arrived at as to
salary.    He said he Avorked ten  days in
all and paid himself $5 out'of sales which
left a balance of $17.50 by calculating his
wages at $2.50 per day.     Johnson on the
other hand said that he did not consider
that MacKay was a clerk.    From his conversation he gathered that lie was a capitalist looking over the country and .that,
lie assisted him around the store merely
as a friend.    As an evidence  of  the unreasonableness  of  MiicKay's  contention
that he was engaged its a clerk he cited
that the sales made in the store did not
average more  than  $0  or  $7   per  day.
There   being   merely   the   unsupported
story of the oue man  against the other
magistrate Crease non-suited the plaintiff.

Kolapore Cup Shoot. •
Touonto, July 14.--Following is the
cable to the Kveiling Telegram, dated
Bisley Camp, July 14: The mother country Avins the Kolapore cup, but her
greatest colony, Canada, only stood eight
points behind when tlie "aggregate score
Wiis announced. The score of the victorious team was 70S, Avhile the eight which
represented the Dominion had 700. At
000 yards the Canadians ran the mother
country a very close nice, being only one
point behind. Though the Canadian
team loses the much coA'oted honor of
capturing the Kolapore cup, the colonial
prize of eighty pounds goes to them, the
'•prize being aAvarded to the team that
makes the.highest aggregate score . in the
Kolapore competition exclusive of the
mother country.
The Canadians'shot splendidly, captain
Rennie of the Queen's Own rifles particularly* distinguishing himself by. making
the highest Individual score of the eight.
He was the only member of the team who
landed Avithin the bullseye every time at
any of the ranges. At 500 yards he succeeded in gaining that distinction. In
shooting at the 200 yards range the wind
proved A*ery strong and' the light was
cloudy, but tit the 500 yards range "the
light Avas much better and the Avind
steadier, and at that distance the Canadians did much better.
The scores for the Kolapore cup were
as folloAvs: Mother Country at 200 yards
243, at 500 yards 205, at 000 yards 200,
total 70S. ,
Canada at 200 yards 240. at 500 yards

The city council has decided to adopt
the proposition of the Kootenay Electric
Supply and Construction  Company, aud
as soon as the   necessary  material" is on
the ground   Avork  will   start  under  the
supervision   of    W.   P.    Dickson.      The
mayor,  and   aldermen   Kirkpatrick  and
McKillop   were- present   at  the  special
meeting of "the council   hist night, when
alderman   Fletcher   read   the  company's
offer its  received   by  the   committee  of
public Avorks.    The committee had gone
into   the   matter  carefully   with   \V. P.
Dickson,   the  company's   engineer,  and
had come to tho conclusion that his plan
of   splitting   tho   existing   system   into
two,   with   a  direct  system   for Baker
street and vicinity  and  an   alternating
system   for   outlying districts   avus   the
cheapest   and   most effective   that   had
been  submitted   to  them.     The  system
would supply 5000   lamps,  and   in  the
opinion of Mr. Dickson and tho  city  engineer sufficient extra power could be obtained from the available water supply.
About  $10,000  Avould   coA'er  the  Avhole
cost, including fixing the dam, Avhile  the

$15,000."
W. P. Dickson   was  asked   to  explain
his plan, and said that as the city already
possessed ; low,   tension     machines    he
thought it best to  haA^e  a  direct  three-"
Avire system into the following  districts:
From    the     corner     of,.    Falls    street
down        Carbonate       to       Josephine,
doAvn    Josephine ■ to     A'ernon,    thence
. to Fill Is street and to  point  of starting.
Under present system about 20 percent
of the poAver was Avasted, but this could
be   obviated.       The  further    got    froin ;
the  poAver  liouse, Mr. Dickson  said, the
more expensive tlie  low  tension  systemV
became by reason of the amount of heavy
copper Avi re necessary.   This  was  saved,
in the 'alternating system with / whieli he.;-;;'
proposed to light the outlying  districts^
putting  in  alternators  about every 200;;
lights.    He thought, and   the   city  engineer agreed Avith him, that 'when- the dam2'2y
Avas fixed and the flume completed, there
would be sufficient water power  to , ruii ;;
the  city  for  the Avinter, assuming that,
not more than 3500 hiinjis Avould be: connected, "■(y.-i.yy
Speaking   of   the   expense    the    new <

3,   ft.   Robertson  of   Nelson   resident
manager  of  the  London  company operating the   Knterprise, paid  a visit to the
mine  last week  and inspected tlie workings   on   the   property.     He was highly
pleased with tin; property, and freely ox-
pressed himself  so.    The only  drawback
in the immediate Avorking oE the miue is,
he states, the question of getting miners.
Under  different  conditions and in some
other  countries this  would  be  ait  easy
mutter,  but not so  now in  the Slocan.
Fabulously rich as  the Enterprise ore is,
yet the management  refuses to  pay its
miners more than $.'5 a day, and  the result is that it cannot get miners.

Hy Justin McCarthy, JI. P.
J heard tlie duke of Wellington make a
speech, and, although it was but a short
speech and not remarkable for eloquence,
it astonished and impressed' me more at
the time than the greatest oration the
'greatest parliamentary orator could have
done. The duke, as I gathered from the
speech of another peer—a law lord, I
think it was—had already been offering
to the house his opinion on the measure
under consideration,' and the noble and
learned lord was now criticising his remarks. In the course of his criticism the
noble and learned personage ventured on
the observation that he feared "the illustrious duke" had not quite understood
the measure now before the house. This
drew the illustrious duke. The duke of
Wellington sprang to his feet to reply,
and he struck the table with indignant
gesture. "My lords," he said, "the noble
and learned lord has said that I don't xin-;
derstand this bill. Well,-, my lords, all 1 *
can say is that I read the bill once, that
I read it twice, that I read it three times,
aud, if after that I don't understand the
bill, why, then, my lords, all I have to
say is that I.must be it damned stupid
fellow." Then the duke resumed his
seat, and that was the only speech I ever
heard him deliver.
Iliad
many opportiuiities  of meeting
not given any clear evidence at home.
lie became one of the most delightful
and fascinating after-dinner speakers I
have ever heard. I rank, him second,
tti id only second, fco Charles Dickens as
an after-dinner speaker, lie never said
anything which was not fresh, original,
and striking; Ins made the most commonplace theme sparkle with fancy and
humor, with exquisite phrase anil poetic
suggestiveness. I think the famous old
illustration about the orator receiving in
a vapor from his audience that which he
gives back as a flood, would have applied
admirably to Lowell, for it seemed to me
that the manifest delight of his London
audiences, had the effect bf making him a
great after-dinner speaker as he went
along. Yet I cannot help saying again
that I liked him best as I knew him first;
that the Lowell of Cambridge,-Mass., was
more to me the real Lowell, the poet and
the critic, the moralist, the thinker, and
the dreamer, than the Lowell of London
society, the Lowell of London public dinners, and fashionable dinner-parties, and
fashionable drawing-rooms.
Thomas Carlyle had a fashion of expressing his opinions Avhieh was likely
enough to make any modest young beginner in the literary craft think twice
before he ventured on the expression of
any views of his own in the presence of
such ti master. Perhaps I ought to explain' here that when I spoke of the literary triumvirate who then ruled over
England, I Avas not forgetting the.rule of
Thomas Carlyle. Such a forgetfulness
Avould be impossible ; but I felt that his
was not by any means a purely literary
force, but something quite different-
something like that of a philosopher Avitli
his  school.    To return,  however, to my
immediate subject, I should say that the
dread I felt of Dickens was not at all
like the dread I felt of Carlyle. In the
case of Carlyle, I did not like to run the
risk of being snubbed ; in Dickens's case,
I knew there was no such risk—I knew
that he was far too sweet and kindly in
nature to snub me, but the very exuberance of his good humor bore me down
and kept me in my modest place.
Bright told me  that  he and  Disraeli
were sitting together one night—I  think
in   the  smoking-room  of  the  house   of
commons—talking, like the pair in Kirke
White's   poem,   "of   various  things—of
taxes, ministers, and kings," and, among
other subjects,  of  the  amount  of time
that had to be given up to the work of
parliament.    Disraeli paused  for  a  moment, and then said: "You know, Bright,
what     you    and    I    come    here    for—
we     both     come      here      for      fame."
Bright     earnestly     insisted     that     he
came for no purpose of the kind; but he
assured me that it was impossible to convince Disraeli that he was serious iu the
disclaimer.     Disraeli ceased to argue the
point, aud listened with a quiet, half sarcastic smile, evidently quite  satisfied  in
his own mind that a man who could make
great speeches must make them with the
desire  of  obtaining  fame.    Bright's objection to Disraeli  was  founded  mainly
on the assumption that Disraeli was, and
must be, a radical reformer at heart; that
a man of his intellect could not be anything    else;     and    that,   therefore,   he
had      become     a      Tory      with      the
object  of   making his  way   to   a   high
position   in  parliament and  in  society;
This sort of assumption or conclusion belonged to Bright's whole habit of mind,
and he could uot free himself from it. He
judged everybody by a rigid moral stan-

in favor  of an   extended

had a far more liberal mind, and was
quite able to understand that a man
might differ absolutely from him on the
most essential principles of radicalism
and yet be deserving of confidence and
admiration.

visits to Boston, find afterwards when he
caliip to London merely as a traveler; and
still later when lie aviis settled in London
for some time as American minister here.
I admired him always; but I may be forgiven if I say that I admired him niost iii
bis own home, and amid his own familiar
surroundings at Cambridge, Mass. It
seemed to me that I understood him best
under such conditions, perhaps because I
had for so many years come to associate
him with the poets, and scholars and
essayists, the workers and the dreamers
who made that corner of the United
States so dear aud so fascinating to admirers in the old country. Lowell was,
as everybody knows, oue of the most
popular American ministers Avho ever
came to London. London society thoroughly appreciated him, welcomed him,
'.'went for" him with hpmage and rapture,
did all it could to spoil him w\th praise
aud social flattery, but could not prevent
him from being tlie poetical, fanciful,
dreamy Lowell of the college halls, and
the homes, and the lanes of Cambridge.
Indeed, Lowell developed in London a
gift of which, so far as I know,  he had I

It was stated yesterday on the unimpeachable authority of the Minor that  forty-five thousand tons of dynamite  were stored in the niaga/.iiie of the Hamilton Powder Company across the lake.  Tlie printers devil of Tin-: Tiiii:i*NK i.s of  an arithmetical turn of mind, and he litis  made some interesting calculations.  Dynamite is put up in HO-pound boxes,  so that -Iii.OOO Ions of dynamite means  I.SOO.OOO boxes. The storage of this  (|iiantity would take a building 2000 feet,  long, 100 feet high and 10 feet wide to  contain it, not counting passage space, so  the Hamilton .Powder Company i.s to be  congratulated on getting that (|tianti(y  into a building 2Ox I ;*>x 10. The same  mathematician shows tluit it avou Id take  __���"> trains of 10 cars each to transport  ���15,000 tons of dynamite, though one train  about IH miles long would dojustas well.  It may be further noted that, supposing  the dynamite to be manufactured in  .sticks nine inches long, these sticks sot  end to end would roach a distance of  51,MO miles.   NELSON.  The Eureka, claim, on Toad mountain  adjoining the Star, was bonded yesterday  by Johnson __ Co. of Rossland, acting on  behalf of tin English syndicate, from A.  Leiteh and his associates. The consideration could not be learned, but ifc i.s  understood that it is a substantial one.  A cash payment accompanied the closing  of the deal.  "Jack" Nolan, her majesty's custom  house officer at the outporfc of Waneta.,  arrived in Nelson last evening. Jack has  spent the last five years in Waneta Availing for the place, to blossom out into  some sort of a toAvn, but up to the present the yelp of the coyote is the sole  answer to the shriek of the locomotive  whistles.  The Topic of Trout-Lake has been enlarged and is now a, six-column quarto,  printed on good white paper. Trout  Lake is dependent entirely on the mining  industry, and the improved appearance  of the Topic is good evidence that the  mining industry is not at a standstill in  that section of Kootenay.
