At Two Million Dollars.
W. M. Botsford, Vancouver manager of
the Merchants' Bank of Halifax, reached
that place on Tuesday after a three
weeks' visit to the Atlin goldfields. Mr.
Botsford brought back witli him $200,000
Avorth of dust and nuggets. Speaking of
his trip to a, News-Advertiser representative, Mr. Botsford stated that he was
very pleased with the prospects and indications of the Atlin gold field; notwithstanding the drawbacks it had had itAvas
bound to make a. splendid showing. He
estimated that this season's output would
be at least $2,000,000. He had personally
visited a large number of tlie creeks
and felt .satisfied that in putting the output down at two millions I'or this season
he had not over-estimated the figure.
This too was being accomplished with
the.crude methods at present in vogue,
rough sluice boxes and, in many cases,
hand panning, no machinery as yet being
installed. Next year, when the work got
more organized and a modern mining
plant was introduced, he felt sure that
Atlin would go ahead with big strides,
and Avould become one of the greatest
mining camps in the country.
The recent troubles had been enlarged
upon. He had talked with many ofthe
Avorking miners, and they all appeared
Avell satisfied. There was little doubt
however that the majority was bitterly
opposed to the alien huv. Had it not
been for this laAV there would be more
people than money in the country today.
Many hoped that the laAV would be repealed aud thus remedy Avhat they considered to be an evil and drawback to
the development of the country.
The decisions of justi-.e Irving are
giving general satisfaction, and the government's decision to issue hydraulicing
leases will assist in firmly establishing
and deA'elopiug the camp.
At the present time Avork is progressing on nearly all the creeks-although the
high Avater has stopped work on Pine
ereek. The bench claims have hardly
been touched yet; these show Avell and.
there are some good grade gravel tracts
that Avill pay well for hydraulicing.
Wright creek has made a A*-ery good
shoAviug; tAvo of the largest nuggets Mr.
Botsford brought-out Avere from this
Creek, one weighing 10] and the other 14
ounces. The Atlin gold is also of a high
• grade. Some had assayed at $17.59 to
• $18 to the ounce. ..'■'■'."'■;."■.
Speaking;of Atlin itself,  Mr. Botsford
from Calamba in canoes   said a hundred
insurgents held the town.
A force under captain McGrath of the
Twenty-first infantry, and captain Eltou-
hord, landed east of the town, but found
a river intervening. Captain McGrath
and liciitrii.'int Balson swam the river
under a fire from twenty Mauser rifles.
Having crossed the stream the officers
procured a easeor to ferry the troops
over. The insurgents retreated through
the town shooting from houses aiid bushes
as they fled lo the hills.
Three members . of the Washington
regiment waded from Gascons through
swamps, often shoulder deep, while a
group of Filipinos,'concealed in haystacks,
were shooting at them until the Naphtha
focused her fourteen-pounders and gatling guns on the stacks for a few minutes,, Most of the work Avas done before
the Washington A'oluntecrs could reach
the toAvn The Filipinos left three dead.
Of the casualties on the American side
two of the killed and wounded belong to
the Twenty-first infantry. There Avas
much shooting by Amigos, Avho emerged
from the bushes AvitliAvhite flags.
For the Office of Attorney-General.
Vancouver, July 27.—A special to the
Province bearing upon the recent government caucus says: It has been learned
that the government members at the
caucus endorsed the action taken by
premier Semlin in asking Hon. Josepli
Martin to resign. Mr. Martin, it is understood, some time ago announced that he
would resign should those present at the
caucus decide against him, but up to the
present Avri ting, no resignation has* been
received from the deposed attorney-
general. There is nothing in the talk of
a coalition goArernment Avhatever, nor is
there any further change to be made,
saA'e in tlie portfolio of attorney-general.
At present the likely successor of Mr.
Martin is beiug discussed, and the opinion
Avhicli gains the biggest following is that
the •■'position Avill be filled bya man not at
.■prensen*e'«aii:;^]ie.^gislaM :iB™"
No Progress Made Yesterday.
The   saAvmill   men  of   Kootenay  had
another conference yesterday Avith aA'iew
to perfecting their organization  for the
control of the lumber business of Koote
nay and Slocan Lake points.     The Sawmill men of Nelson,  Kaslo,  Slocan   City
and Pilot Bay were represented.    Their
chief aim was to raise the price of dimension lumber from $0 to $12 per thousand.
Tlie scheme as  developed tit yesterday's
meeting was to establish a central selling
office at Nelson.    The yard .for this selling office it was proposed should be supplied by the several mills iii the combine
upon the basis of a certain percentage of
tlieir output.    To make  this effective it
was further proposed  that  none  of the
mills in the combine  should  sell  except
through the selling office.    In this Avay it
was argued that not only Avould the.mills-
be able to regulate  the price  of lumber
but they Avould also be able to economize
in their expenses.    No definite conclusion
was arrived at,  however,  and  the  mill-
owners' combine is at present as far from
consummation as it.Avas tAvo weeks ago.
Just wlntt the stumbling block Avas none
of those present at yesterday's meeting
would disclose, but from the fact that an
adjournment    Avas   taken  Avithout   any
date being set for a subsequent meeting,
it may be inferred that the  projected
combine has fallen through.     Whjle this
may be regarded as unfortunate by the
saAvmill meu,it Avill occasion no complaint
from those Avho are purchasing lumber
at $9 per thousand.      "'-.'■'■•

Encouraging News From the Slocan.
Nkw Di_nvior, July 27. -The news of
the sale of the Galena. Miues has caused
much genuine satisfaction in the camp,
as this removes at once from the escutcheon of the Slocan a somewhat darkened spot. The successful operation of
the group will go a long way towards
strengthening the position of silver-lead
properties on the Bristish market, the
past reputation of the Galena Mines to
the contrary notwithstanding. W. S.
Drewr'y of, the firm of Drewry & Twigg
of this toAvn was the purchaser of the
property, having secured it for W. L.
Hoge of Anaconda, with Avhom was afterwards associated the McCunes of Salt
Lake city. Those interested decline to'
name the sum paid, but assert it is a bona
fide deal. Plans for future operatiaus
ai-e iioav being perfected.
'The scarcity of meu in the. camp is
most marked, and several outfits have
had to look elsewhere for the desired
help, eA'en at the $3.50 figure.
Mark Mauley, avIio is superintending
the development of the Black Prince on.
Springer creek, has the most unbounded
faith in that property. The ledge is six
feet wide, three feet of which is shippiug
ore, ancl Mr.-.-Mauley says the -mine••■will
rank as one of the big shippers of the
camp. Seven men are employed, which
force is to be increased. . Au early shipment is to be made, to be followed by
Adjoining the Black Priuce is the Two
Friends, Avork on Avhicli has been resumed
by a small force. The lead of the former
is believed to be continuous into the latter, forming a most valuable group.
}', Work done recently on the Bondholder
group, from the Springer slope, has disclosed a chute of clean shipping pre,
.which has been proAren for some distance.
: Springer creek is more lively than for
years, pro'iDerties A\r"orki n g from one en d
to the other, forming a lively camp—a
big contrast to other sections of the
tional minors luwe been put to work on
properties in the Slocan City district
during the past month, all of whom are
working on eight-hour shifts and besides
these there are a large number of men
doing development work on their own
properties. Among the working properties  are  the Arlington,  Two Friends,
Chapleau, Kilo,  Tamarac,
and Bank of England.
Black   Prince
The management of the Athabasca
mine is calling for tenders for au 1100-
foot flume to be constructed to their
mill. Tenders must be sent in by the
81st instant. "„
Nothing is being done at the Monitor
group, near Three Forks, Avhicli is under
bond to the Wilson "brothers of . Nelson,
as under the conditions of sale Avork is
only to begin on September Sth, when
the second payment falls due. There is a
large;quantity"of ore in the stopes, and
shipments will begin on that date.
The statement of tlie Queen Bess
Proprietary Company shows that the
galena shipped from the Queen Bess
mine in the Slocan realised over $S6 per
ton and the carbonates OA'er $_8. The
average value of the mine's shipments of
galena and carbonates Avas OArer $04 per
ton. After the cost of .mining, sorting, hauling,.freight, treatment and duty
were deducted the ore'shipped netted the
company oArer $20 per ton. It is for this
mine that captain Duncan of Nelson says
that he must import cheap miners from
Ontario and other eastern points.

Cheap Labor for the Queen Bess.
At the second ordinary general  meeting of the Queen Bess Proprietary  Company, operating the Queen Bess miue iu
the Slocan, which was held in London on
Thursday, July 13th, Edwaj-t Hart, chairman  of  the company,  took  the  shareholders into his confidence and told them
of the plan of captain  T.  J. Duncan  of
this  city  to  import  cheap miners from
Ontario  and   the east; and displace the
union miners in the company's property.
In order that there  may  be   no   misconception   of captain Duncan's  intentions
the remarks of the chairman of the coin-
pany in this connection are giveu in full:
" Captain T.  J. Duncan  had   recently
been appointed general  manager.'of the
company in British  Columbia,  and   in a°
cablegram received on the  previous day
he'gave his views of  the position of the
mine at the present moment.    It  Avas as
follows:   'The  wagon   road  is  now   repaired and 250 tons are bagged ready for
shipment;   shipments  of this  Avill commence  on  Monday.    Regular shipments
cannot commence until the strike is over.,
Am making arrangements for importing
miners from Ontario and east.   'Regarding the building of the Ctinadian  Pacific .
raihvay tramway, the Idaho Miuing Company think yoii may.expect a.'competing-'"'

Estimating the Shamrock's Chances.
Lt-.S-i-OX, July 27.—The Yachting Woi'ld
issued today contains a long article on
the Shamrock's eliancOs in the contest for
the American, cup. Starting upon tJie
assmnption that the Vigilant and Britannia were equal the writer argues that the
Shamrock showed herself to bo 'capable
of beating the Britannia in a moderate
breeze by from 25 to 20 minutes over a
thirty mile , eourse. With the time
allowance the Shamrock's net superiority
would be from fifteen to twenty minutes.
A.s tlie Defender's superiority over the
Vigilant in sailing the same course is
estimated at six minutes, and the Columbia's superiority over the Defender i.s
assumed to be three minutes, it is esti-
ni.'ited that the Columbia's superiority
over the Vigilant is nine minutes. Therefore, according to: the Yachting World's
eeriied the line is purely iluagiuary,, tlie.ft.

Ottawa, .July 27.���It is understood  that the senate reform resolutions which  Avere introduced by premier Laurier will  not be gone on with this session. There  avus another profitless discussion on preferential trade in the house today on the  motion for supply. It was "started by  McNeill, who refused to accept the resolution which sir Wilfrid Laurier had  given him, and which was along the lines  of the recent tar ill" matter. NcNeill  wanted a resolution confined to the tariff  preferences only, and sir Wilfrid included other concessions. McNeill moved  his own resolution, and finally sir Charles  Tupper got him to withdraw it to see if  oui! which could not be unanimously  agreed upon would not be put through.  Mr. hid wards made a iree trade speech.  <^fe *���-_?*;_? *a? S^S*: *  #  vine  Strike Eeaches Philadelphia.

Mrs. May Wright Sewall was elected  president of the Woman's International  Congress as the successor of the countess  of Aberdeen, at tlie recent session in London. The next, nieeting will be held in  Berlin.  In a letter to the Brooklyn Eagle accompanying a check for twenty-five dollars to, be added to the Dewey Home  Fund, governor Roosevelt expresses the  opinion that tlie admiral's services to his  country "have justly rendered him the  man of all since the civil Avar who stands  highest in the  popular regard."  Lord Robert Cecil, third son of lord  Salisbury, is a practicing lawyer, aiid has  been made a queen's [counsel at an unusually early age. ''He*devotes himself to  to the " parliamentary bar," wliich is the  British equivalent for the work done in  this country by the lobby. The practice  is described as dull but lucrative.  Charles C. Moore, the infidel editor of  the Blue Grass Blade, who has just been  released from the government penitentiary at Columbus, Ohio, to which he was  sentenced for sending obscene literature  through the mails, received a warm welcome in Lexington on July Sth. He was  met at the station by a number qf friends  and a brass band, and was escorted to  \ the Phamix hotel, where over two'thous-  rand   persons   congregated   to   seo   him.  'Moore addressed chem'from the'balcouy,  thanking them for tlieir reception, and  promised to devote the remainder of his  life to the betterment of the people  among whom he lived.  The will of Johami Strauss, the great  " wait/, king," is to be contested. He left  his property to a Vienna musical society,  providing small life pensions only for his  tliird wife, his stepdaughter and sisters,  but nothing for the families of liis two  brothers. The chief contestant, however,  will ho his second wife, from whom he  secured a divorce, and who is employed  in a Berlin photographic establishment.  Tliey were both Catholics when they  married, but as Austria does not permit  divorce, Strauss went to the Duchy of  Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, declared that he had  become a Protestant, resided in the duchy  for the legal term, and them obtained a  Coburg divorce and married again. As  Austria docs no. recognize sucli divorces  and the Austrian inheritance Jaw secures  at least a third of the property-, to the  =wklo;w?=Stivatiss^divoreed=second-=wife=  seems to have good chances of getting a  large share of what he left*  Miss Amelia Kussner, the young American Who has achieved a high reputation  iii; 13urope and America as a miniature  painter, receii-iy returned to London  from Russia-, where she had some interesting experiences. Site went to St.  .Petersburg to paint a miniature of the  grand duchess \nadimii,v aud had been  'there only a few days .when she was  summoned to the Winter palace to paint  a likeness of the czarina. BefOl'C she  had finished, the czar ordered a .miniature  of himself. Miss 'Kussner .speaks with  much enthusiasm of the kindness and  consideration with which she was treated by the impel-ial circle aud the simple  uiuiriectedness of their life. Her first  sitting were at the winter palace at St.  Petersburg, and the last at the summer  villa ab Zarskoe-Solo. Tlie czar gave  Miss Kussner eight or nine sittings of  several hours each, and talked most freely with her. He is a great admirer of  America and Americans, who, he said, he  admired for their intelligence and independence.  Letters from Buenos Ayres give details  of a remarkable duel, of which the famous  Italian fencing-master, Chevalier Pint,  was the hero. Pini recently opened a  school of arms in the Argentine Republic,  and, having been subject to some criticism by a local journalist, told the scribe  in his own frank, pleasant way what he  thought of him. Reparation was demanded, and pistols were the weapons  selected. The conditions of the meeting  were singular. The adversaries were to  be placed back to back, and at the word  of command were each to take fifteen  steps forward, and then "to turn round  and lire simultaneously. On the ground  the men were placed as arranged, and at.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlin, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yuk,on. District.  1.11e given signal, began to march forward, one of tho seconds counting the  steps. Pini liad only made five strides  wlien lie heard a report anil the whistle  of a bullet past his ear. He turned and  saw liis adversary with the smoking pistol in liis hand. Pini, in a, furious rage,  dropped his weapon, rushed at his man'  and gave him a sound thrashing with his  fists. The .seconds took sides for their respective principals, and a general melee  went forward until some gendarmes arrived. Pini's adversary then took to his  heels, and has not since been seen.  The baroness von Sutter���who recently left The Hague, where she watched  the peace conference, in order to attend  the International Congress of Women in  London���occupies one ofthe most distinguished positions''in the modern humanitarian movement. A well-known and  charming figure in Austrian society, and  at the same time a novelist of European  fame, she has for many years devoted  herself unselfishly to the propagation of  the idea of peace, attending the unofficial  congresses that "have'met in leading continental cities, and editing a monthly  magazine called after her great novel,  " Die Wai-en Nieder! " ("Lay Down Your  Arms ! "). It is by this novel, -which has  passed through some thirty German  editions, that her talent has become most  widely appreciated. Its subject-matter  is the foili' wars which ravaged Central  Europe from 1859 to 1S71, and it is full of  terrible and thrilling episodes told with  the skill of a great artist. Besides her  other novels, the baroness wrote some  years ago a volume of philosophical and  ���esthetic essays under the title *' Das Mas-  chinalter." This remarkable book was  for a long time attributed to various  great Germans-till the true authorship  became known.  safety valve of energy and pull wide open  the throttle of conscience ; where gold is  a substance���the one thing sought for���  and God is a waste basket for our better  thoughts and good resolutions ; where  we pay $15,000 for a dog and 15 cents a  dozen to a poor woman for making shirts;  where we teach the 'untutored Indian'  eternal life from the Bible, and kill him  with bad whisky ; where we put a man  in jail for stealing a loaf of bread and in  congress for stealing a railroad ; where  the cheek book talks ; sin walks in broad  daylight, justice is asleep, crime runs  amuck, corruption permeates our Avhole  social fab.iic, and the devil laughs from  every street corner.  Come to us, Fillies, we've got the  grandest aggregation of good things and  bad things, big things and little things,  cold-things and hot things and hard  things, all sizes, varieties and colors ever,  exhibited under one tent. We've got  guns, more Bibles and more whisky than  any two shows on earth. If you don't  come we'll fetch you. That's what our  gnus are for. Of course when you fellows 'jine' us you will have to stop eating each other. You will be our meat  then. Our people won't stand to see a  lot of good meat wasted that way. Yon  can eat each others substance that  makes the flesh���we do that, but uot the  flesh. You can eat dogged bologna or  canned horse meat. It will be almost as  healthy aiid will expand our meat trade.  Come to our arms. Buzz Saw.  FULL LINE OF  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  U   I'. Hamilton, Sirdar  If P. I.inghiim, Creston  W. P.

The chain gang are employed levelling  off and grading the school house grounds.  The work is progessing rapidly and  should soon bo finished.  Ifc is now four weeks since the celebration and Hags and bun Ling.'ire still strung  across Haker street. The celebration  committee next year will again be wondering what has become of them.  The gas company have got down to  business, and are pushing construction.  They started yesterday on Kootenay  street, and by the middle of the afternoon liad a. 1-inch pipe laid from J.akei'  to Victoria.  Mrs. iMalhstte returned yesterday from  a three weeks' visit to Duncan City.  A. IO. Hodgins is getting out plans for  the Madden block, whieli is to be erected  on the corner of Ward and Haker streets.  Yesterday men were put to work trenching for the foundation Avails. As there is  some uncertainty as to how far down it  will be necessary "fco go to get a solid  foundation this work will be done by day  labor.  The time for receiving tenders for the  construction of tlie Burns block expires  at noon today. Contractors desiring to  figure on the work are required to have  their tenders in the ofiice of A. E. Hodgins by 12 o'clock noon. As an unusually  large number of contractors are tendering on the work, some very close figuring  may be expected.  W. P. Brougham of the Miner staff desires The Tribune to state that he is not  the Miner reporter who contributes,the  letters appearing in the Miner over the  signature of J. Y. Clarke. He adds that,  though it may seem strange, he still possesses sufficient self-confidence not to be  ashamed of his own name. While The  TiiiiJUNi- considers that the Miner is the  journal in which Mr. Brougham sliould  disavow authorship of articles appearing  therein, it has no objection to affording  him an opportunity, through the columns  of The Tribune, of placing himself right  with his friends.  The tug Kaslo brought to Nelsou yesterday four rafts containing 300,000 feet  of dry building material for G. O. Buchanan's lumber yard.  The water in the hike is falling at the  rate of from four to six inches per day.  Died in Nelson on ^ Thursday, July  27th, the infant daughter of J. F. Povah.  ���..

For the in forma tion of fche Miner, the  ofiice of Till-: Till BUNK i.s not a rendezvous  for people that play at politics.  A lad named Gill broke his right forearm yesterday while playing on Cedar  street.  One of the features of the Methodist  picnic yesterday was a game of baseball  between nines captained by Miss Maltby  and Miss llatx-h. One side won by a score  of 21 to hi, but when the game was over  it was not definitely known whieh side it  was that won.  The horses purchased for the city by  Dr. .1. A. Armstrong arrived in Nelson  last evening and it i.s announced that the  corporation will make a start today in  the handling of the scavenger business.  C Iveland, or George' Johnson as he  was better known, the victim of the  drowning accident between Hal four and  Queen's bay, was buried last night on the  lake shore near his camp. Dr. Form who  went up the hike to eiujttire into the circumstance of the drowning did not deem  an inquest necessary.  The smelter band wants a little encouragement. Its appeal to fche cifcy  council for a donation of $10 a month,  the baud to give an open air concert on  Saturday evenings, was refused. Now it  wants the citizens to subscribe that  amount for a like service. Tin: Tunti'XR  will start the list with a dollar a month.  The ball team which will represent  Nelsou in the game with Grand Forks on  Sunday will be as strong as any team  which has worn the Nelson uniform.  Houston will be behind the bat. while  Rockenfieid and Waters will divide the  work at short and in the box. Partridge  will be at the initialbag with Eacritt at  second and Blackwood afc third. The  outfield will be made up of Campbell,  Phair and Mills. Ifc is understood that  Sam Neelands 'will have charge of the  team while aAvay on the trip.  A meeting of the householders and  Freeholders in the Hume addition and  Bogus town will be held at 2 o'clock on  the afternoon of August 7fch for fche'piir-  pose of nominating a board of school  trustees for the newly created school district to be known as the Hume school  district.  co  oo  <=>  C/3  PRESERVE THIS LIST AND ORDER FROM IT  PHONE 8        BOX 98  Anchovies  Anchovy Paste  Catsup of all kinds  McLaren's Cheese  Condensed Coffee  Condensed Milk  Condensed Cream  Devilled jriam  Devi I fed; Chicken  Devilled; Turkey  =_)evilied=Crabs**  CO  OS  CO  CO  co  co  1.4  'VT��    fi  CO  oo  CO  CD  Diamond Prices  Are Climbing Up  BUT HAVE NOT REACHED  TOP NOTCH YET  THE   FINEST   PLEASURE   RESORT   IN   KOOTENAY  Devilled Tongue  Devilled Beef  Finnan Haddie  Honey in Bottles  Nam in Tins  Irish Stew  Jams and Jellies of all kinds  Lime Juice  Lunch Tongue  Lamb's Tongue  Lobster  Marmalade  Macaroni and Cheese  Olives  Pig's Feet  Roast Beef  Corned Beef  Relish  Sardines Iri oil  Sardines in mustard  Salmon  Trout in tins  TrufFes  Herring in torn sauce  Herring in anchovy sauce  Herring a la sardine  Kippered Herring  Boned Chicken  Boned Turkey  Boned Duck  Potted Ham  Potted Turkey  Potted Tongue  Potted Rabbit  Potted Bloater  Potted Beef  .
