 ���xrov  CHEAP LABOR TRIED AND FOUND  tssr- To be Too Costly.  Spokanm-, Juls*" 20.���The Japanese laborers empkiyed on tlie various section  gangs along the entire line of tlie Great  Northern must go. Such is the edict sent  out from the general ollices of the road  a few days ago, and as soon as white labor can be secured to take their places  the change Avill be made. Tlie cause alleged by tlio railroad company is incompetence, and on good authority it is  learned that, within sixty days there will  not be a .Japanese section hand at work  on the road. In new construction work  alone will this class of labor hereafter be  employed by the Great Northern.  During the past year the road has furnished employment to nearly 2000 Japanese, a large portion of whom were  shipped out from Seattle for section  work. As tho various inspections of track  by division road masters were made periodically it was noticed, it is said, that the  roadbed was not materially improving,  although large forces were constantly  kept at work. On some divisions, it is  claimed, the ties have been rotting underneath, while on the surface tliey are  apparently sound. The Japanese, it i.s  stated, have been slow to discover this,  and the decay has been allowed to run on  for such a length of time as to leave portions of the roadbed in bad condition.  These facts, it is reported, have been  known in St. Paul for some time, but it  has been almost impossible to secure  white labor.: ��� and the condition was allowed to'remain as it was until a more  favorable time. It will now, it is alleged,  cost the road many thousands of dollars  to rectify the alleged errors of the Japanese and Mr. Hill, it is said, has decided  to get rid of them.  While all of this is said to be the direct cause of the change tliere is another  reason back of it which to all intents and  purposes might be called a victory for  labor unions in Montana, says the Seattle  Post-Intelligencer. Ever since the Jap  auese laborers were imported into the  state the white labor unions haA'e been  opposing thein. On three different occasions, it is alleged, the Japanese at  work have been assaulted, and in two instances death is stated to have claimed  some of the victims. The unions, however, kept up the fight, and with sections  of the roadbed becoming impaired, as is  alleged, through Japanese handling, the  unions found a way to enlist the sympatic of the Order of Railway Traiumen.  A committee was'appointed and in per-  SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 30,   1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Mkuioi'KN'io, Victoria, July 30.���The  colony of Victoria, as the result of the  referendum held on the subject of the  commonwealth bill, drafted by representatives of lhe Australasian colonies of  Great Britain in 1898, and revised by the  premiers last January, has decided by an  overwhelming majority for federation.  Inasmuch as New South Wales, without  whose adhesion none of the other colonies  is willing to federate, gave a majority of  22,000 for the commonwealth bill at the  referendum of June 20th, the action of  Victoria as showing the sentiment of the  younger colonies shows the union of the  Australians in a commonwealth of Australia is assured. The colony of Queensland will hold its referendum on the  question on September 2d.  Big Smelter at Grand Forks.  Guano Forks, July 27.���The board of  trade tonight tendered a banquet at the  Alberta hotel to the visiting directors  and shareholders of the Granby smelting  company, the City of Paris, Knob Hill  and Old Ironsides. The guests included  S. H. C. Miner, W. II. Robinson, Granby;  Jay P. Graves, A. L. White, Montreal;  1_. M. Carroll, New York; E. Stephens,  Waterloo, Que.; William Farwell, general  manager of the Eastern Township bank,  and H. B- Brown, Sherbrooke, Que. The  guests exceeded forty. Richard Armstrong, president of the board of trade,  presided. The affair proved very enjoyable aud the utmost enthusiasm was  aroused wheu the various visitors outlined the scope of their mining operations  in the boundary. S. H. "0. Miner announced that the smelter uoav building  here would- be enlarged to a capacity of  3000 tons daily.  THE DISTRICT AND THE TOWNS  KOOTENAY MINES AND SMELTERS  Rapidly Assuming Shape. \  The  ride association  Avhieh   is   being  gotten up under the auspices of  the Nelson   rifle  company, is  rapidly assuming  shape.    A council to regulate the  target  practice and to pass upon the  bylaws  of  the association has been   formed and will  meet   in   the near future,    it consists of  captain   Hodgins,   president;   lieutenant  Beer,  sergeants  Dickson  and  Day, corporals   McLeod   and   Beasley   and   five  privates.    The  preparation  of  the rifle  range  has   been   undertaken   by captain.  Hodgins  at his  own expense, and. when  completed  will  amount to about  $175.  To recoup him for this  expenditure and  to meet current expenses, the  rifle  company will donate $50 out of the company  fund, and civilians who join will liave to  pay a $5 entrance fee.    The shooting Avill  be entirely under the control of the company, but the  council above mentioned  Avill confer  as  to  rules  and regulations  governing the practice, more especially of  civilans, and of the management  of  the  ground Avith civilian marksmen Avho take  an  interest   in   target  shooting.      Any  civilian, properly proposed, may join the  association, and a certain number of rifles  Avill  be set aside for their use, and for  Avhieh they Avill   be   responsible.      The  rifles are  valued  by the government at  $25 apiece.  The butts have been finished and the  distances measured off, and carpenters  are uoav employed in putting up the targets. Captain Hodgins goes out Monday  morning to inspect the range and see  that all available precautions luwe been*  taken. ./  Anotlier Discovery on the Gold Belt.  Six miles southwest of Nelson, ou rCagle  creek, prospects are being made mines hy  capital and clainis are being made prospects by labor. The Poorman and Granite and Royal Canadian are in the hands  of capitalists and they are likely to be  developed into paying mines Avithin a  year. The Greenhorn Fraction is a'claim  owned bsr men without capital, on which  a 15-foot prospect shaft has been sunk.  The A'ein is three feet AS'ide, tlie vein matter being quart/, carrying free gold. The  claim lies between the Poorman and  Granite, the vein being about 500 feet  above that of the former. The owners,  E. O. Nelson and J. P. Swedberg, believe  they have the makings of a mine aud are  Avilling to put all the elbow grease they  haA-e in an attempt to prove it.  be $30,000, the greater part of which Avas  saved on the plates. Although the mine  amis not worked full handed, owing to the  difficults' in securing miners willing to  work for tliree dollars a dajr, the mill was  run to its full capacits1*, there being no  dispute between the mill men and the  mine management as to wages. The  mouth's product was $500 to each and  every man employed at the mill, mine,  and the compsiny's ollices in Nelson and  London.  Rossland Ore Shipments.

Paris, July 29.���The Echo de Paris today prints ex-judge Beaurepaire's promised' revelations in tlie Dreyfus case, Tlte  first article names four Avitnesses who.  heard some anti-Semites say, '* We will  get Dreyfus back or drag Franco into  Avar." They did not care for his innocence, but only foi' the glorification of  their sect. The second article cites witnesses Avho allege they Avere offered JeAV-  ish bribes to support Dreyfus. The tliird  article relates Iioav Dres'fus AA'as seen  talking to some Germans. The fourth  says that Dreyfus was extravagant, and  the fifth gives opinions of certain French  . ministers and Others on the prisoner's  guilt.'  The whole revelation is of the flimsiest  character and obAriously trumped up.  There is oue point upon which both  Drcyfusites and anti-Dreyfusites are in  perfect accord, that is the importance of  l-sterhazy's presence as a Avitness at the  new trial at Rennes. Disgust is therefore general at the news that he has refused to attend, notAvithstandiug the safe  conduct given him by the government,  Avhicli . guarantees him against arrest  until after the trial is concluded.

Chadbourn is making good hea'd-  Avay in the Avork  of  collecting mineral  specimens for the proA'ineial exhibit at  tlie Paris exposition. The district allotted  him comprises the Nelson, Ymir and Goat  river- sections   of   West Kootenay.    He  has two men Avorking in  Goat river who  haAre informed him that they expect to  secure at least forty good specimens.  Mr.  Chadbourn has been \Arell OA**er the Fmir  camps, and Avill secure specimens from all  of the  Avorking  mines and many of the  prospects.    From  the  Nelson   mines  he  "has secured specimens that will probably  be the finest in the  province's collection.  The Athabasca- mine has  sent cIoavu   a  /specimen that sIioavs the full AA'idth ofthe  vein.    The   specimens * from  the   Sih'er  King mine are the finest  that eArer came  from that mine.     When  the  specimens  are all  in Nelsou,.. "which, "will be by the  15th of August,  they  will be packed in  boxes or   barrels" and  forwarded to the  proA'ineial mineralogist at Victoria.    One  of the specimens that Avill  be sent is a  block of Kootenay lake marble a foot and  a half scpiare, Avliich Avill be cut and polished.

CANADA SUFFICES FOR HERSELF  Says the Saturday Review.  London, July 29.���The Alaskan boundary,, dispute again looms large in the  newspapers and a heated discussion is  raging for and against the latest suggestion that a harbor sliould be leased to  Canada. The ollicial A'iew seems to faA'or  this compromise as a general basis foi- a  friendly arrangement. It is pointed out  that as the United States, Canada and  Great Britain haA'e to live as neighbors,  and in their hearts desire to live as  friends, neither, should or can afford to  assume an attituduof non-possumus or  act if that were to be the last transaction .to be arranged, especially as the  main question at issue, though almost  lost to view among the multitudinous side  issues, Avas the means of access to the  Klondike. =The lease of a harbor avouIcI,  seem to meet the difficult needs of  Canada.  .!'On the other hand, the Saturday Re-  vieAV voices the feeling of a considerable  section of the public in pointing out that  by accepting the" suggested settlement,  Canada debars herself from again raising  the question of territorial rights and becomes a mere licensee where;.she claims  to be the owner in fee simple^ Many  think the proposed compromise would.-..;  lead to endless complications, acts of retaliation and attempts on one side to exceed the other side or restrict their  rights. Under the proposed compromise  the Saturday RcA'ie%v thinks Canada  ought, in ho eA'ent, surrender her rights  in international la av, unless she concur- ;  rently i'eceiA^es considerable concessions  from the United States.  On the questions before the commission, the Saturday Review proceeds to  claim that Canada uoav suffices for herself, both politically and economically,  and has no further need of the United,  States, aiid that only the most factitious  policy on the part of Great Britain could ;  give the annexationist party, iii Canada  an excuse for existence. - The  eludes as follows:  "With thousands of Americans slaughtering Filipinos:.whom they Avent to free,  while the truth is concealed from the'y  public by methods Avorse than Russia's,  as au instance of external aggression, and  Avith a reign of terror in Cleveland, AA'here  a tram strike is conducted Avith nitro-;  glycerine bombs, as an example of intei--  nal coiiA'iilsions, there is raised the grave  question of A\'hat Avill happen Avhen the  present tide of prosperity turns;.^ Tliere-^  ,���fore;to urge, Canada', ito^ gC-'sbes��)hdstlie '  article^cph-  f iheh.i%s a^^tei^dii^.fiape'is ffmmtlyr^^  itlie l^^ilrspiel^r  - t"en "Scored" l|y &'e��rih"'-ii''"Pfe"ss."

When the Queen Bess Proprietory Company took over the Queen Bess mine,  about eighteen months ago, the engi ileer's  report estimated there was about $2-10,-  000 of ore in sight. The report recently  submitted to the shareholders states that  that amount of oro has been shipped during that time, Avhile it is estimated that  owing to recent development about half  that amount of ore i.s blocked out now  ready for stoping. The mine originally cost about $120,000 and is one of the  mines whose local manager says it cannot  be Avorked profitably unless he is allowed  to import cheap labor from Eastern  Canada.   ''���-,  Over Five Hundred to the Man.  Although the actual figures a re, not'at*  hand, it is estimated that the* product of  tiie i'uiir mill for the month of July will  Hone. The fageblatt considers that the  form of ai'fci&ratioii adopted marks an important step towards securing the peace  of the AVOtid, and adds:  "���Whoever knows the toilsome way the  progress of international JH'Ay is made avU-I  be satisfied Avith this result."  The l_reii/,e Yjeituhg, referring to the  United States and BnglalKl. says;  "flic nations tliat boasted loudest of  .tlieir humanity;, made the stoutest i-esist-  auce to really practical .luiuian-iuuian  propositions."  It further points out th.-Vt while Kng-  land and tlie United States stood together in opposing the prohibition of  bombs filled Avith noxious gases;* tiro  United States backed up Mngland's refusal to abandon the fiiim-duiii bullets,  "Tlte platoiiic declaration, of the conference for the principles of the czar's proclamation," the Jvretr/e Zeilnng continues, "introduces absolutely no change  iu existing conditions."  The A-wwaerts gives tlie confcroiieo a  parting shot, calling it a coiueds'.

Almost all these annual gatherings  have some distinctive feature by which  tliey are remembered by those who attend them.. Will any one who saw it  ever forget the display of suspenders and  open-backed shirts at Put-in-13ay ? Will  any one ever forget the surprises that  were sprung on the crackajacks at Chicago this year? Two or three comparatively-unheard of clubs, from whieh no one  ever expected anything in particular,  came very near carrying off all the  championship honors. These were Racine, Wis.; Toronto, Oaks of Austin, 111.,  aiid Indianapolis.  Tlie Minneapolis team started their  match against Indianapolis in the second  round of the trial heats for the Hamilton  trophy with a sort of half chuckle at having drawn such, a snap. So little did  they think of the Hoosiers that they did  not even stop to ask them what system  they were playing, and after they had  lost the match, and with it their only  hope of the championship, they were the  y s  :Wi&Mtl^  :^th*--.a"seye*|.vLot l-tlfeivMJl^iilij^; y py.y^hOa,  **Sti^i-faTj_t';f&^  "GhictVgo;;  ���jjlayliVg;*^  tfe:;  ��^-tliduglraie\_?o:st?'iii 'idanypawled  "'hi\\ l<^^j$ir-tf%7;��" ^11^611^ f^U^eefciii^.  /Inii^i-fking-'atf^' tie��e.; ��^]?lrtyer'��6iinth"e��-.'rigli:t j  "g.o^ilVaild;���ctxifiei hat^Ayithiiie 5 iBiggtir-  drops,the deiice, tljeji falls |roin tlie qi_-  I gii),if leader aiulr$i&oSje4$ "vyifijsi, Q^liei-y  ^-Wlreiie :ire tlie sjjadfs:?:,  ::- Tlie ;Oaks"tea.mO--A;uStij*i, .JUniois,, were  airather sui',j3tsisee,.

All this Only goes to prove  tlie truth of tlie asset'tioi^ so often put  forward by The Sun that if some of our  youiiger teams could only bG persuaded  to try their skill against some of those  witli a big reputation, and would avoid  going info the match scared to death before, the play began, they would find their  cli.-inces much better than they think.  As usual, there were a great ninny  things expected at the ninth congress  that didn't happen. There was no change  in the rules about tlie turned trump, although all the progressive games were  played without one, clubs being declared.  In the championship events a trump was  turned in all cases, probably so thatthe  " turned-through-the-honor-called " fellows might have a chance.  As to systems of play, it would seem  that little or no attention was paid to  them, although some one did make a motion to adopt the league system as a  "standard." The only team of any importance that luwe made a. profession of  this system for'important work arc from  Toledo, and they certainly did not make  a success of it at the congress which has  just closed: Although they got into tho  finals of the Hamilton they finished with  the lowest match and trick score.  All the winners of the big events at the  congress played the long-suit game pretty  strictly, and so did all the losers, because  there was nothing else played. Tliree of  the Toronto team are in the habit of  playing the common-sense game, but in  deference to the wishes of tlieir fourth  man they dropped it at the congress. It  was a subject of constant remark that  the matches won and lost did not turn  upon the nse of any system, but simply  upon the want of care and steadiness in  critical situations. Simple blunders were,  to blame for the loss of the most important matches in-many cases. Walbrook  lost five tricks by leading trumps once  too often, and so shut themselves out of  tlieir chance for the challenge trophy.;  One little finesse against Chicago shut out:  the Minneapolis team, and Toledo drop-;  ped the two tricks that would have de-i  i$^t"eclyG-^ $$utb>  al   iiroperties   in   that   province.     These  journals and the'mine-owners with whom  they sympathize have  given a black eye  to  the British   Columbia "propositions,"  which   have tempted the  speculative enthusiasm of  the eastern   investor.    British Columbia, journals and British Columbia  mine-owners must, know their  own  business, and  their actions indicate that  they have set an unduly  high  value on  the mines, which are working so close to  the margin that a difference of two hours  a day means the difference  between profit and loss.    British Columbia mine-owners  have been  dealing with  the eastern  investor as if their properties were amazingly rich.    Some  of these  mine-owners  give  the lie  to their  own   pretences by  professing that their  mines will not pay  on an eight-hour basis.    These mine-owners  have a good case against the eight-  hour  law. ^They  should   be  freed from  the  restrictions of  that  statute,  and at  the same time the eastern investor should  allow able and patriotic journals like the  Vancouver  World and   Nelson  Miner to  open his eyes-to the   truth that he  is  asked to pay too much for  stock in Bri t  ish Columbia  properties which  aie capitalized for one, two or three  million dollars, aud are yet so poor that they can be  put upon the road to ruin by two hours'  difference in   the  day's   work   of   each  miner.    When  it is a  question of selling  stock a certain class of British Columbia  journals talk as if every property in the  province were  worth millions, and when  FULL LINE OF  it is a question of paying wages these  same papers talk as if there was not a  property in British Columbia which  would not bv. pushed into bankruptcy by  a decrease in the length of the working  days and .such a decrease docs not necessarily imply a decrease in the working  power of each niines.
