 WILL FLOAT TWO COMPANIES  Both Up in the Millions.  The report that Mackenzie & Mann, the  Avell knoAvn mining operators and railroad contractors, intend making a flotation of a large part of their British Columbia mining properties, Avhieh AAras published in Tiik TiununM- several daps ago,  has been officially confirmed. The properties Avill bo floated in Canada and  England in two great companies, one of  Avhieh has already beeu organized.  Dan Mann recently gave out a number  of interesting facts in an intervieAv with  an Ottawa reporter. He said that all  tlieir properties in the Boundary will be  floated in one company with a capital  stock of $5,000,000. The North Star,  near Fort Steele, will be incorporated by  itself, but tlie arrangements for its flotation haA'e not yet been completed. It i.s  understood that the North .Star will be  sold to the company for $1,500,000, part  ���;, cash and part stock, but the terms of the  deal were not gi\ren out. The company  into''which the Boundary properties avi'11  be consolidated was organized several  Aveeks ago, but has not yet been_ registered. It is officially known as the Dominion Copper Mines, Limited. The  capital stock is $5,000,000, divided into  5,000,000 shares at $L each. Of this capital stock 3,000,000 shares Avill be giA-en  for the properties and 2,000,000 shares  have been placed in the treasury.  The properties Avliich the company acquires under this deal are six of tlie most  promising claims in the Bonudary���the  SteniAvinder, Brooklyn, Idaho, Moute-  i-unia, KaAvhide and Golden Eagle. While  all are good properties, the development  Avork has been chiefly confined to the  Brooklyn and SteniAvinder. The Brooklyn is a croAvn granted property, located  under the old mining act, and is consequently 000 by 1500 feet. The ledge  runs north and south and is 100 feet in  width. The limestone Avail is easily dis-'  ��� cernible ou the surface, and the lode can  be traced the entire distance to the opposite wall. A double compartment shaft,  9x4A feet inside the timbers, has been,  sunk to a depth of 250 feet. This shaft  is at an angle of 70 degrees. There are  two leA-els, one at 50 feet and the other  cat 150 feet. The greater development  Avork has been done at the latter level.  The ledge has been crosscut the entire  distance, of 150 feet. There is also a 75-  foot drift on the ore body. It is the intention to crosscut aiid drift at 250  feet.  fey-  lT1ciaj  4%��  urte  THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 20, 1891).  PUBLISHED AT NELSON.

Nkw York, Jiily 19.���The Washington correspondent of the Herald quotes a  member of the cabinet-is follows: "Either  major-general Otis or tiie neAvspaper correspondents inns- go. To deport the correspondents has been accepted at home  and abroad as a return to the old Spanish  method of mu///.liiig the press. To relieve  major-general Otis Avill mean an official  acknowledgement of his failure and a demoralization of military discipline." The  above statement was made when the  member of the cabinet Avas asked to discuss the problem which confronts the administration as a result of the publication  of the newspaper correspondents' "rounds  robin" protesting against the course of  general Otis in preventing the real facts  regarding the Philippine situation from  being known.  AVhafc every army officer in Washington has long feared, but for obA'ious  reasons declined to discuss in public, and  Avhat ciA'iliaus Avere beginning, umvill-  ingly in most instances, to belieA'e, is  precisely confirmed by the remarkable  cable dispatch from Hong Kong, AA'hich  AA'ill take rank as a Avar .paper with the  celebrated Santiago round-robin of last  summer.  In the war department for more than  a mouth the feeling existing among the  higher oflicials that general Otis AA'as misplaced in command at Manila has been  groAviug impressible. His official reports  Avere seen to; be non-corroborative and  even the-pi-esideidvwa �� up longpi-���miaA*vap;  "5MtM5i&smd5sei^  Poorman Shareholders Meeting.

Arthur HarA'ey, furnished a  A'ery exhaustive report of the company's  properties, showing the work that had.  been accomplished since he took charge  on June 15th last, and his ideas for  future Avorking. The report A\ras considered inost satisfactory and ordered to  be filed. At a subsequent nieeting of the  directors, C. C. Bennett Avas elected  president and managing director and W.  L. R.

It is declared that even if governor Roosevelt beeame secretary Of Wai* lie Avould  c^ have to employ A'olunteers in Lu/.on, so  the situation would not be so radically  improved as the Americans seem to  imagine. No doubt it is entertained that  the Washington " government means to  crush the rebellion, but it is felt that the  absence of a large regular army in tlie  Philippines renders the solution longer  aud more difficult.

Victoria, July 19.���Lieimtem.nt-gov-  ernor Mclnnes has been making a speech  at Atlin indicating his intention of taking the initiatiA'e in securing an amendment to the placer mining laAVs on his  return to the capital. It AA'as his great  object, said the lieuttnant-governor, in  making his tour through Bennett and  Atlin districts to meet personally the  mining and business men and to obtain  froni tliiem their A'iews and suggestions  on all matters affecting the Avelfare of  their portion of the province.

Jt is  a fact tliat none of them have had an  opijortunity to present any sijateineut re-  gardihg them since their accounts of the  opening of hostilities early last I?ebruai'y.  Senator Knute Nelson of Minnesota in  an ihtervieAV upon the Philippine situation today said Ihat he rtgreed Avith the  statement that niajor geiieiral Otis Whs  not handling the campaign properly and  tliat tlie president sliould put another  man in charge.

Corning, New York, July 19.���Mrs.  Birrolio died yesterday at Blossburg,  Pennsylvania, as the result of the inhuman Conduct of her husband. Tavo  A\reeks ago he set fire to the clothes oil his  AA'ife Avith burning paper, and then held  her hands Avhile she burned. The shouts  from the suffering Avoman brought in  neighbors avIio rescued her. She Avas  taken to the College hospital and died  from her burns yesterday. Birrolio is in  jail charged with murder.  The Shamrock an   Easy Winner.  Coaves, July 19.���As AA'as the case yesterday the Shamrock showed her superiority very soon after the start was made.  Beating to the Avindward she ran aAA'ay  from her opponent to the Nab lightship,  and again put about in ten seconds, the  Britannia occupying twelve seconds in  the turn.. The Avhole .race showed that  the challenger is far ahead of the Britannia, although tlie, unfortunate becalming of the boats precluded the finish.  Wants to Keep in Touch.  C. C. Chipnian, commissioner and chief  executive officer in Canada, of the Hudson's Bay Company, arrived in Nelson  last night with a party of Canadian Pacilic officials en route to the Boundary  Creek district. Mr. Ghipmaii stated that  in order to keep in touch Avith the  rapidly changing business conditions in  the west, he finds it necessary to make,  frequent A'isits to Kootenay district. He  noted with great satisfaction the progress of Nelson, as evidenced by the  number and substantialcharacter of the  buildings in course Of erection, Avliich in  his opinion Avas conclusiA-e proof of the  faith of the citizens in the future of the  city. As far as the Hudson's Bay Company is concerned, the'-commissioner added, it is the intention of the company  to finish their new building in the most  modern and best possible stylo, and on.  its completion to give the people of Nelson a store Avorthy of the city and in;  keeping Avith the past reputation of the  company. Mr. Chipnian leiwes today for  the Boundary district, driA'ing through  to Penticton. He "will look into the business conditions and prospects of the different toAvns AA'ith a vioAvto establishing  branches and extending the business of  the Nelson-store in that part of Yale.  NELSON.  Dan McLean, an AinsAvorth miner, Avas  brought before stipendiary magistrate  Crease yesterday for examination'.-', as to  his sanity.

THE ROADS TO BE CONNECTED  After All These Years.  An arrangement for the exchange of  traffic between the Canadian Pacific and  the Nelsoii and Port Sheppard railways  has been practically completed, so William Whyte. superintendent of the G. P.  R. lines west of Lake Superior, informed  a Ti-iH-'.vi- reporter last night. Negotiations to this end haA'e been going on for  some time, and are at last nearly concluded. 'Mr.,Whyte expected to meet C.  Shields, A'ice-president of the Spokane  Palls & Northern, here and make final  arrangements, but Mr. Shields failed to  put in an appearance. This arrnugement  Avill be of great convenience to shippers,  stud especially to the coal niines of tlie  Crow's Nest Pass, as coal and-coke lose  largely in handling. The connection is  practically made already as there are  only about 1000 feet of track to Jay to  join the tavo roads. The company is enlarging tlieir siding accomodation at  Pernio and are also "improving, their  track to the coal niines there. Mr.  Whyte also stated that it AA'as not settled  Avhether the line from here to Kootenay  Landing Avould be constructed this year  or not, but it AA-as epiite probable that a  portion of it Avould be. Mr. Whyte is  here on a tour of inspection, and is accompanied by senator Cox, Robert .TalTray  'and C. C. Chipnian.  A Serious Assault Case.

Argument   in   the   case;   of   the City  against E. C. Traves Avas resumed yesterday   morning   before  police  magistrate  E. A. Crease, Avhen W. A. Galliher rose on  behalf of the city.    He spoke for about  tAA/o   hours,  dealing  seriaturn   AA'ith the  points raised by S. S. Taylor the day  before.    He  argued   that the  information  AA-as properly drawn, in that it folloAved  the wording of the  statute, and. further  that   frame  and   wooden    buildings,  as  spoken of in this country  AA-ere  synonymous  terms.      It   AA'as not  necessary to  read the bylaw in <|uostion  three  times,  nor to  seal  and  sign  it, as   the  bylaAV  which enacted   the  consolidated  byhuvs  AA-as duly read, signed  and  sealed.    The  clause permitting the  mo\ing of  buildings did not invalidate.' the  bylaAA', as it  came under the head  of reA'ision.    Webster's standard  dictionary  shoAved that  to   revise  meant   "to   reA'ieAA-,   alter   or  amend."    The  objection  would  only "be-  good if  legislation  or  totally  neAV  subjects AA'ere introduced.    In ansAver to the  objection that thecity had ho  power to  establish fire limits, ;Mr. Galliher argued  that under sectiou   50, sub-section  28, of  the  Municipal Act  the  corporation had  poAver   to    regulate    buildings  "AA'ithin  specifiedoparts" of the  municipality, and  it did not matter AA'hat designation Avas  given,'to  such  specified parts.    The objection that  undue po\Arers  Avere  gi\ren  the fire chief turned oii   the; iuterpretti-  tion of the AA-ord enforcement.     He  was,;.  properly  empowered to   cause   the   enforcement of the bylaAv setting the: regular machinery in  motion.      The   bylaAA'  did not constitute him a "court, to adjudicate upon such matters.    The council had  general poAver to regulate  the construction- of buildings, and its  officer had a  right   to   enter   buildings   to   see-that  these    regulations    AA'ere     carried    out,:;  and      refusal      to     admit     him    constituted       an       infraction        pf       the  bylaAA'.    He contended that the addition  in question-was a separate building, in  that it  had   four  Avails  and ti roof, aud  Avas subject to the jurisdiction  aforesaid  of the council.    He combatted the objection that the  building Avas not  erected-V  It had four'walls and a roof, and  there- j  fore- Avas  orected, although it might hot S  be completed.    He  contended  the  ques-'y  tion   of  the right 'of  rhe council to pullX^  doAvn the building Avas not  at  issue, but;�����.

William Coutts, late superintendent of  Nell field cemetery, Aberdeen, who had already been committed for trial on  charges of having desecrated graves and  perjured himself in a civil action against  the Baker incorporation, was again taken  before sheriff Burnet in chambers on Saturday afternoon. Examined on nine additional charges of desecrating graves  and mutilating bodies, which luwe been  preferred against hini as the result of the  week's investigations by the crown officials, he pleaded not guilty, and declined,  on the advice of his legal agent, G. M.  Aitken, solicitor, to answer any further  questions. The application for bail Avas  renewed, Mr. Aitken urging that it was  most- unfair to the prisoner that he  should be kept in prison while fresh  charges were being continually accumulated against him, and that he had no opportunity of instructing liis defence or of  taking any steps' whatever to meet the  charges brought against him. The procurator fiscal deputy said he had instructions from the lord advocate to oppose  the application in the public interest, and  in these circumstances the sheriff refused  bail.

As to tlie alleged disappearances of jewelry and artificial  teeth buried with corpses, one rumor  sJiys that a set of false teeth was sold in  Aberdeen for 1.2s. 6d. Another statement refers to the interment of the wife  of au actor on, a touring visit to the city.  She was buried, says the story, in a hand-*  some oak coffin, and this coffin was  broken up, and the grave l-e-sold. A man  named Hay, who Avas for some time gardener at the cemetery, says he has seen  coffins lying in the tool house for five or  six weeks at a time. Often they could  not get their tools out of the tool house  for the smell. He remembered a body  . being taken out of the coffin and put  back into the ground, while the coffin was  burnt. As to lifting coffins containing  bodies from the strangers' ground and  putting them into holes in the walk he  had seen that clone frequently. He had  often left the tool house where seA'eral  children's coffins had been lying, and returned after breakfast to find there were  . no coffins left. When he asked what be-.  came of these coffins, he was told that  they had been buried-somewhere. Bones  had been taken away from private lairs  and put into the walks. He had opened  holes iu the walks himself for bodies to  be put there. He could point out a place  where   nearly thirty   bodies were   once  THAT    INDIA    COMMISSION    KEPOKT.  j\ion-ton   I'Yewen, who is an  authority  on    the silver   question   says  there  is a  want of substance behind   the report of  the  Indian commission,   how the   report  was  anticipated and discounted in   London  long ago ; how   the majority  of the  -commission was   made up of English salaried   officers, -who   Avant  their  pay in  gold,  ami   finally the  impotency of the  whole business, wliere men gravely favor  the gold standard  knowing all  the time  that  the only  way to  establish  it is by  borrowing the gold, aiid  that every* door  is   closed   against   their   desired,   loans.  But it is pitiable to contemplate the condition of India under their cruelty.    The  fields are going back to jungle ; the crops  measured by tlieir depreciated rupees are  almost"-valueless;   the    only   substance  Avhieh they ever esteemed to be money is  a  mere  commodity  AA'hich  they  can no  longer   rely upon   as a   means  through  which    ,to   purchase    tlieir   necessities.  Tliose officers watched  Avhile some  millions  of Avretches died three  years ago,  through a famine more of money than of  food ;  the   statesmen   who   control  the  finances  of Great Britain watched also,  but tliere Avas no compassion.    The farmers and mechanics of England petitioned  them to act; tlie governments of France  and  the  United   States   niade  a direct  proposition for a   restoration of  silver :  they   did   it,   too,   upon   an  invitation  coupled Avith promises from the financial  secretary   of Great Britain  and on  the  unanimous   vote of  parliament,  but all  Avas  turned  down,  and  as  Mr. PreAveu  says,   India AAras  left to  drift and Is still  drifting.

Things   haA'e   changed  since   then.    The  destruction of a large  number   of   French   vineyards   by   the  phylloxera   reduced   the Avine-producing  zone, and to replace the old natural wines  large   quantities  of   highly   alcoholized  artificial   wines   Avere circulated,   Avhicli  acted  disastrously upon   the habits and  life of the people.    At the same time the  progress of science Avas revealing new and  cheap  sources   of   alcohol.    Corn,   beetroots and potatoes began to  yield large  quantities of  it.    The  rich agricultural  districts, allured by great possibilities of  gain, turned to alcohol-making.    Distilleries   sprang    up    everyAvhere.      They  placed large quantities of cheap and poisoning alcohol within easy reach of the industrial masses.    The republic also unintentionally  helped this evil.    Instead ofthe stringent laws of the past, restricting  the opening of new saloons, no other formality   was required   than a declaration  at the mayor's office, and no other limitation existed than the inadequate i.erson-  al record of the saloon-keeper.    Condemnations  for   crimes,  theft, SAvindling or  any violations of the criminal code Avere  the only hindrances.    This measure, enacted in the name of liberty, AA-as folloAV.  ed by the addition to the original number  of saloons of 100,000 new ones.    At the  present  time  there is  one   cabaret for  eighty-_iAre    inhabitants,   or   for   about  thirty  male adults.    In the department  of the Nord tliere is one saloon for forty-  six Inhabitants���that is, about one for  every   lifteen   male   adults.    There are  streets  in Rouen in .-which for every 100  houses  there are  fifty saloons.    It must  be  remembered that  cases  like  that of  the Nord are  not general, and that the  oue of Rouen Is exceptional; still, the development of alcoholism in France is appalling. .       .

THE LOCAL NEWS_0F THE TOWN  Where the Tram Will Go.  Tlie street railway company will soon  begin construction Avork, and in two or  three day's time will apply to the council  for permission to use the streets  selected. The entire route of the road  has not been decided upon yet, as negotiations with the JJogustown people have  not yet been concluded. A Ti.iii_\n._ reporter yesterday enquired what streets  within the city limits would be used by  the raihvay, but the oflicials of the company declined to give any information  until the formal application is made to  council. It has been gleaned from other  sources, however, that the route will be  much as follows: A line will run from  tlio C.J*. I {-.depot to Baker street, thence to  J-ogustown if the negotiations before  mentioned are successfully concluded. A  branch line will run up Stanley street as  farasl-lines road, thence to Kootenay  street, and from there to the skating rink,  at the corner of Houston and Stanley  streets, which belongs to the company. A  line will also run along Observatory  street, or possibly Robson street, to  Josephine street, and thence down to the  main line on Baker street.  Two hundred tons of steel rails "were  received yesterday by the company, and  a gang of workmen were engaged who  will he kept continuously at woi-lc.
