Railway Graders Strike a Bonanza.
A strike of good oi'e was made last
Week along the line of construction of
the Canadian Pacific railway one and a
half miles from Duncan City. After the
workmen had quit on Saturday night,
several blasts were lived, with the result
that they uncovered soinefine looking gold
ore. .Tames McVeigh, one of the contractors, at once located a claim,and A. L. Dolan
another. Since then there has been eight
claims located on the lead, which is about
twenty inches wide. Samples of the
rock were sent to Nelson this week and
assays running as high as .$2000 were obtained.
North Side Won.
A cricket match was played yesterday
afternoon between men whose business
places are on the north side of Baker
street and those .on the south side. The
latter went in first and compiled 73 runs,
W. A. Jowett being top scorer with 22
runs to his credit. For the north siders
Walker, who went in first with Sykes,
did well, making 13, but the other batsmen failed until Forbes came in and made
25 by hard, clean batting. Towards the
end the game became very exciting, and
when the last man went in two runs were
still wanted to tie, but Christie and Courage hit out, winning the match by eleven
runs. Williamson caught and bowled
tliroe men, two of the chances being very
hard ones. Hardie also brought off a
couple of good catches. There was no
time to play two full inniugs, but the
south siders went in again and knocked
up 1(5 runs for 8 Avickets before time was
called. Following are the names and
full scores:

Both pleaded guilty when arraigned be*
foro magistrate Crease. In the first case,
in which it was shown that a regular
business was made of the illegal stile of
liquor, the magistrate imposed a fine of
$100 or three months imprisonment. In
the other case a fine of $50 or two
months imprisonment was imposed. The
prisoner Annie White paid'her fine while
the other woman went to jail until the
required amount' is raised. In these
cases tlie warrants wore not issued till
Friday night. They were then taken to
Robsoh, executed and the prisoners sentenced inside of twenty-four hours.
But the Work Not Completed.
W. P. Tierney & Co. will probably finish their  contract   for  straightening out
the  Columbia <fc   Kootenay   branch  between Nelson and  liobson  by the end of
the present   month.    As  was expected,
the amount 'appropriated  for the work
.has proven  to   be   insufficient,   and  al
though the  work  done  will   greatly improve the line there  remains a' great deal
to be  done.    It  is  just  possible  that a
further appropriation   for the work may
be had this  fall.    If not it will probably
go over till next season.    Before Tierney
& Co. commenced work this summer there
were no less than 82 bridges between Nelson and liobson.    The work in hand Avill
reduce  this   number   to   about   71.    As
these bridges require to be repaired from
time to time, it  would be much cheaper
for the company  to  have  them all filled
in, and this will probably be done before
the work on the  branch is considered as
finished, such wooden  trestles as it is impracticable to fill being replaced with iron
and Steele  bridges.    Tierney  & Co. have
now but two pieces  of work to finish in
order to   complete'-their 'contract,' and
their force has  been cut down to about
40 men.    They are  now  at Avork on the
road around the big bluff and at another
place  three"miles  beyond  the crossing.
The big  bluff section Avas considered as
the most dan gerous piece, of road on the
jbvaneji&but" -'the/Avork™ now* in handSwilP
Friday night eleven men were transferred from a Canadian
Pacific steamer to a special train in waiting- at Five-mile point and
conveyed thence to Ymir. From that town they were taken to
the Ymir mine, a property managed by J. "Roderick Robertson,
president of the board of trade of Nelson. The men are under
contract to the "Nelson District Miners' Association," which is
made up of the Hall Mines, Limited, the London-&_British- Columbia Goldfjelds, Limited, the Athabasca Gold Mine, Limited,
the Duncan Mines, Limited, the Exchequer Gold Mining Company, and the Dundee Gold Mining Company. They were secured
at Sudbury,  Ontario, through an agent sent from   Nelson.    The
in full below:
contract which the imported men signed is
Memo, of agreement made the thirty-first day of July, 1899, between Ben
Gilbert of Sudbury, Ontario, and John'E. Mitchell of Nelson, B. C, witnes-
seth that the said Ben Gilbert covenants that he is a competent and reliable miner, and that he will work tit the mine or mines, managed by the Nelson District Miners' Association, or such other mine in the Nelson district
as may be directed, for six months from the date of his arrival there ; and
John E. Mitchell covenants that he will find employment for Ben Gilbert as
a miner for six months, subject to good behaviour and capability, and that
he'will guarantee his pay at the rate of $3 per day for an eight-hour day
and $3.50 per day for a ten-hour day. (Signed) B. GILBERT.

the Cr.-inbrook Herald. And what is
more, the work is bringing forth the most
satisfactory results. Southeast lvoote-
nny is looked upon today as one of the
most promising mining fields iii British
Columbia, and it will fulfill every promise.
In the Slocan District.
Notwithstanding the fact that reports'
are sentcbroadcast that mining in the
Slocan is at a standstill* the following
items of mining news were clipped from
the Sandon Paystreak of .yesterday:
The Bank of Montreal yesterday exported a gold brick to the United States
assay office at Helena, Montana. The
brick wascyahicd at $3400, and is probably the output of the Athabasca mill.
Thomas Kane, of Kane Brothers, general merchants at Erie, is in Nelson. lie
says work has commenced on the Relief
mine, which is situate thirteen miles from
Erie. The work is driving a tunnel 100
feet by contract. John; Campbell has the
contract and he employs seven men.
The Noonday, on Four-mile, made ii
temporary layoff of most of its force on
Tuesday. On Wednesday the men working on the development broke into two
and one-hiil f feet of ore. The force is being put on again as fast as possible.
Another,, big strike was made in the
No. 5 tunnel at the Payne last Saturday.
'"-The ore chute has widened to nearly two
feet, showing solid geleiia of ah unusually high grade. No. 5, which is in 1400
feet, is the deepest working in the camp.

order-iii-coiindl had been passed vesting
all interest in the wharf in the Corporation of the City of Nelson. The order-in
coiincil, which is dated July Slst^ 1899,
reads: " On the recouimehdatioii of the

lauds and works, his honor the lieutenant-governor of British Columbia, by and

Illegal Litraor Sellers Sentenced.
The provincial police gathered in two
Robson women last evening upon charges
of selling liquor without licenses. There
litis been several complaints of illegal
liquor selling in the vicinity of Robson,
and as a starter the police gathered in an
Italian woman named Nellie Collavica
and another woman named Annie White.
The former was conducting a blind pig
at West Robson and the other was selling
liquor in a brothel near Genelle's sawmill.

fiaM^et to Alderman „ T&oinsoii.,
The banquet which was tenclergd tb
Henry B, Thomson last evenings ifppil the
occasion of his departure from this city
tp engage in business, at the loO-mile
house in Cariboo, Avas one of whieh any
mliu inight well feel proud. It Was at-
f riendsliirTMr. Thomson has gained since
his arrival in this city, and the wavmth
of their reception of the toast to the guest
of the evening showed that Mr. Thomson
has more friends in Nelson than could be
mustered by two tramway 'companies
with a gas company thi'own in.
The toast of the evening was proposed
by W. A. Macdoiiald. He prefaced his
remarks with a. neat tribute to the good
qualities of Mr. Thomson and the regret
which all experienced at his departure.
He then read tin tiddrcss, which will stand
framings in which one hundred citizens,
through the medium of alderman McK.il-
lo'p, expressed their regard fpr Mr. Thomson and requested'him to accept as a souvenir of the same a handsome gold watch
and chain.
The recipient acknowledged tile good
wishes of his fellow citi/.eus hi a nianly
speech. He said from the first he had
received uniform kindness from the
people of Nelson, and whether or no he
deserved the manifestation of good Will
which had been displayed in such tangible form on the eve of his departure, he
had endeavored during his stay in the
city to earn it. He had been made to
feel that Nelson Was his home and the
opportunities which the Cariboo offered
to him in a business way was the sole
excuse which he could plead for relinquishing for a time at least the many
friendships which he had formed in Nelson.
That everyone enjoyed himself at the
banquet goes without saying. The arrangements came as near the perfection
mark as such matters ever reach. A
quartette composed of Messrs Thompson,
Caldwell, Prosser and, Hardie gave a vim
to the singing while B. E. Phair maintained his reputation as a host and gave
good fellowship every aid to put in a
thoroughly enjoyable evening.

fereflce to the present: unsettled condition, of European politics.. The appearance of the United States as a World power
iB priniai-ily responsible for this distxtrb-
friction between Germany and the United
States, the latest being Dewey's alleged
Avarlike statements, which give European
Statesmen cause for uneasiness and are
regarded as a motive for emperor William's overtures for a reapproachment
with; France. France is still smarting under the humiliation of the Pashoda
affair, and is inclined to meet William
if once convinced that the Russian alliance litis no real value. The primary
object of Delcasse is therefore to get piib-
lic evidence that the allionce holds good
by persuading the cssar to A'isit the Paris
■exposition', and by personal contact with
the Russian court aiid statesmen to ascertain to what extent the alliance may
be relied on.
The visit of lierr Fischer, special agent
of the Orange Free State, to Pretoria is
regarded suspiciously. His influence,is
not expected to lead president Kruger to
accept the British proposal for joint inquiry into the effect the franchise bill
Will     have      upon      the      Uitlauders.

Mine Workers' Union to a finish: "Some

Mine Owners' Association at the meeting

taken on the labor question. We have
no authority for saying so, but still believe our surmise from, the first is correct
—that the governinent will be induced
to suspend the penal clauses of tlie act,
and that the mines will start Within a
few weeks,as they were before—on eight,
nine or ten hours as may be agreed, on.
The owners do not object to an eight-
hoitr law oi' eight hours as the basis of
payment, but they do to the penal clauses that tienp the liberty of the subject.
We should not be surprised; if in the
meantime the government and the mine
owners jointly submitted these clauses to
the privy council in England for their
Opinion as to the validity of the law.
The mines, Under suspension of the penalties, could be operated til! the .same
while the matter was being considered in
England. It is Whispered in some quarters that more than the Slocan owners
will shortly be in the association—its influence will be provincial in. extent."

As They Are Contrary to Law.
British Columbia has a law entitled
"Master aiid Servant Act." It was
amended last February. The imported
miners-from Sudbury, who are now
working at the Ymir mine, of which J.
Roderick Robertson of Nelson is manager, should be made aware of the act.
Sectiou-3 reads as follows :
3." Any agreement or bargain, verbal
or written, express or implied, which
maybe made between any person and
any other person not a resident Of British Columbia, for the performance of
labor or service, or having reference to
the -performance of labor or service by

previous to the migration or coming into
British Columbia of such other person

Manihi. Hong Kong having been
made to hot for the FIHpinas through
tlie efforts of consul general Wild-
ma h, the rebels decided to
establish hetidqua iters in Manila.
They were encouraged to try this daring
■experiment by the fact that under a recent decree of general Otis the Philippine courts are now conducted by
natives. So Crisanto Lechancho,
treasurer of the junta, went boldly to
Manila and professed friendship for Otis.
The scheme worked so well that the delighted junta has celebrated its victory

There.'is-''one..commodity in the Montreal market which' is bought and sold,  which several firms are virtually making  barrels of money out of and which thousands of people get bills for every month,  yet it cannot be stolen. The firms that  deal in it produce plenty of it and deliver it to their customers in all parts of  the city, but nobody can steal it; there  are laws-protecting these firms in their  ownership of the strange commodity, but  they are not aimed against larceny  and several persons are now under surveillance for taking the stuff without the  consent of tlie manufacturers, but tliey  are not and cannot be classed as thieves.  The commodity is electricity. Gas can  be stolen by the bucketful, and is every  day in the week. Thousands of feet of  the gas company's product is every year  diverted from the meters arid used illegally. But the cleverest thief cannot  steal electricity. He hiay tap the wires  of either the Lachine Hydraulic, the Imperial or the Royal Electric companies  and use the "fluid" to light his saloon,  but after the current passes through tlie  apparatus it all goes;back to the various  plants. There is none of it used or  wasted. The companies get back just as  many volts as they .sent but, whether  the current is used for ten incandescent  lights��� or  10,000. :. Therefore,the  subtle  "%  .^i  ^tgf^^Jiie'rg^lie. ^onjplari^  C /^]^it��|t}] i o"ee��.* Is��0 i-sl.^s-^iii&e.iS't^Sla.lf1' Ji^g'^iiVs^".-;;  b%in]Dern,i^Nath^*-hfe ^raes\.;6'f f:tli'efsCO?i^|  "And you have to pay for  them," says  (lie electrician.  CHICAGO ��of course.'"  " Well, why not get enough electricity  for your money to light up the whole.  There's your a,re light out there, and you  pay for all the ciirrent^that goes through  it. The tire light will mini just as good  if the wire is supplying your saloon, and  you're entitled to till the current on that  wire because you pay for,it."  If the saloon man relents, and there is  evidence in the Grose Secret Service  Bureau that he lias in numerous instances,  the electrician -makes a bargain for ^a  couple of dollars to supply the instrument  which will do the work. This is a piece of  iron fitted with clip springs which is put  in where the feed wires of the company  pass through the building. Then, taking  another wire, he lays it close against the  springs, and that night when the  company turns on the current  the bulk of the electricity is diverted  from the meter, by the cut-in wire, and  flows into the saloon, which is at once  brilliantly lighted at a trifling expense to  the saloon man.  Just how difficult it is to discover this  sort of swindling'is apparent at a glance.  In some instances a flat rate is charged,  and there is no chance of an employee of  the company dropping around and making a discovery.  "Where ameter is used," Mr. Walbauk,  of the Lachine Hydraulic Company, says,  "it is mucli easier to detect the fraud, as  the amount which passes through the  machine is so small as to excite the suspicion of the inspector who goes around  every thirty days. Of course, this other  sort of work is discovered only by accident in some cases by an inspector stumbling on the wire or something of that  kind." !-"A" .���  .

It is probable that general Wheeler  will be given command of a  brigade of cavalry in general Lawton's  department. The boundary line of Law-  ton's department will embrace the territory in which there will probably be the  heaviest fighting, so Lawton will be in  direct charge of the most important forces  in the field, and iu this Avay general Otis,  while not being officially discredited, will  be relieved of much of the l'espousibility  in the conduct of war, and will be left  free to perform the duties of military  governor.  . Secretary Roots short experience in  the war department has already convinced him that the views of the military  commanders sub-ordiuate to general Otis,  who favor a larger military force  than  recommended by that officer, are worthy  of serious consiilertition. There are reasons to believe he will recommend that  the force be further augmented.  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  HUME.  J. M. Coombs,  R. McLean. Kaslo  J. A. Harvey, Fort Steele  E. J. Walsh, Eort Steele .

On Friday night two men were  observed opposite Roberts' ranch with a.  sieve net which they dragged up towards  Five-mile point;. Night lines are also  nightly set in that vicinity, with  the rcsidt that theiw are practically no lish iu that part of the  river at all. It is believed that the fish  so caught is sold in Itosslaiid, as fresh  trout are obtainable in the restaurants  there every day, which is certaintly not  the case here. Such methods of fishing-  are not only depriving Nelson of one  its great attractions during tlie summer months, but they are contrary  to the law, and attention of the provincial police authorities is directed to  these depredators.  lias   fallen   so  days   that the  Just a few left of these nice crash suits  Just the thing for this hot weather  Come and get fitted out and do not suffer  with the heat  We also have a nice line of crash hats which  we are selling at very low prices  J.

The evidence went  to show that Moore did not know that  Hardie was a policeman and the magistrate dismissed the case with a warning  to the defendant.
