 ROSSLAND SOOTH BELT MINES
Are Showing Up Well.
Rossland, August S.—Tlie second annual meeting of the shareholders of the
ITomestake Mines, limed, was held at the
offices of the company in Rossland today.
A large and enthusiastic gathering of
shareholders were present to hear the report of G-. It. Bayne. The vice-president
of the company occupied the chair.
After the usual preliminary business the
reports of the directors and of R I).
Howe, the consulting engineer of the
company were made. It had been known
for some time that the Ifomestake development work' in the lloniostake was
of a nature satisfactory to the management, but few shareholders were prepared for the splendid statement shown in
the report referred to.
The present company began active operations  .about  the   first  of   November,
1S!)S, and since that time 110 feet of sinking and i)f50. feet  of  drifting   have  been
done, besides the cutting of stations and
the installation of a. pumping plant.   The
amount expended  by  the--- company  to
date   is  about $25,000.      The   principal
work consisted in sinking a shaft  begun
by the former company  to  the  200-foot
level and running  a  drift  457  feet, and
the making of crosscuts thereupon  north
and  south.     Thedrift  on    the  200-foot
level was begun on a small vein of arsenical iron and continued ISO feet to a dyke.
West of the dyke a large body of characteristic   Rossland   ore  Avas (.encountered
continuing to the west about 125 feet aud
of shipping values.    West''of this chute
the level has been continued some SO feet
showing a. mass of lower grade ore.   This
drift from the 200-foot  level   was begun
for the purpose of developing a rich surface showing of ore about 520   feet  west
of the main shaft, and the ore  chute referred   to  was  unexpected.     Work was
being actively  pushed and in about six
weeks the levels wotdd be continued to'a
point   underneath   the   valuable'surface
showing.       At       the        same        time
crosscutting     is      being     done      from
the  tunnel and  a  raise-is being  made
on the ore chute.    Mr. Howe has spent a
great deal of time in the Rossland  camp
and is thoroughly familiar  with the formation   of  the north  belt.    He assured
the   shareholders , that   the   formation
found in the Home-stake  was. similar in
all   respects  to  that  in the  Le Roi and
'War.'Eagle,'- and   expressed  the greatest
confidence in the same and  that  further
development  of   the   Homestake  would
it a paying mine.

tration, following the United States lead.
We believe president McKinley to be
thoroughly in earnest in his endeavor to
have the question honestly settled. The
misunderstanding of sir Wilfrid's remarks by the United States press is unfortunate, aud bitterness or abuse by the
Canadian press is absolutely unautlior-
r/.ed. The negotiations .arc progressing,
and I believe a satisfactory settlement of
l,he-Alaskan question will be achieved.

KEEP YOUR WEATHER EYE ON THE
C. P. R. and Its Land Agents.
The fine Italian hand   of the  chairman
of the public works committee, who is also resident .agent of the hind department
of the Canadian   Pacific, is beginning   to
show  itself already  in    the 'Hall-street
wharf question,    lie wants to know who
owns the land  over which  the wharf is
built, also who  owns the  approaches  to
the wharf.    The question   might be asked, who owns the land over which the C.
P. R. wharf is built,  and the approaches
thereto ?   Tlie Corporation of. the City of
Nelson owns Hall street from end to end,
also all  the foreshore rights at the   end
that   happens to  disappear' in the west
arm of Kootenay  lake.    It hits long been
known that the C. P. 11. would like to see
the Hall-street wharf .abandoned  and  a
new wharf built at the  foot of another
street, on both sides of which the C. P. R.
ownes  the  land.    It is   always  well  to
keep  your  weather eye  on the C. P. R.
and its laud'agents.    There  is one thing
they, never  overlook, and   that  is  their
own interests.
Gold Standard for India.
London, August 8.—In the house of
commons today the secretary of state for
India, lord George Hamilton, introducing
the Indian budget, said after careful consideration the government had deliberately concluded that a gold standard was
required in the interests of India, and
that they would not be deterred from
prosecuting the policy by all the meaus
in their power merely because tlie next

Al&skan Negotiations Progressing.
London, August tS.—Joseph B. Choate,
United States ambassador to Great Britain* was interviewed today by a representative of the Associated Press ill regard to the recent War or arbitration
speech delivered by sir Wilfrid Laurier,
tiro Canadian premier. He said "there
will bo no war. It is safe to say no
amount of politics or politicians iu either
country could occasion war in this connection." The ambassador continuing
said, the Canadian parliament was on the
CVe of dissolution andtlie leaders of both
parties had to speak. "Mr. Choate seeilicd
to think these latter circumstarices explained. Laurier's position, and was inclined to attach small importance to the
premier's remark. Mr. Choate added that
negotiations were progressing, "but," lie
.explained, "they are always slow, and I
can say nothing at present as to their
status."
Regarding Mr. Clioate's statement, the
Canadian high- commissioner, lord Strath-
cona aud Mount Royal, said to a representative of the Associated Press: "Sir
Wilfrid Laurier's remark was merely a
figure of speech and not a political dodge,
as intimated by Mr. Choate. Sir Wilfrid
could not descend to such a thing, nor
did he in any way mean to challenge the
United States. No sensible man cou'd regard war as possible, but Canada in sinir
ply taking a leaf out of the United States'
book in demanding now what the United
States demanded in the Venezuelan case.
Canada is now a nation, though closely
allied to Great Britain, and as such she
must protect her rights. We merely.ask
for an equitable settlement through arbi-

Italian embassy, on his in*estiga;ti.0n of
the lynching of fiye Italians in Louisiana.
Tlie report presents the iyifah: in a §eri6us
light and shows that the Italian, avithorv-

were no^jiiftigatiiig cireumstances, that
DrTHotlge^firltllrew a Weapon ji-uicnth'at
the first shot fired by Defatto was in defense of his, brother, and not a wanton
attack. Describing the alfair in detail,
the report points out that some time
after the first two. men were lynched the
mob made a second then a third visit to
the jail from whence they removed and
lynched the thyee other Italians, all of
whom, it is contended, were in utter ig*
norauce of the Wounding of Dr. Hodges.
Conceding some extenuating circumstances in the lynching of the two men
immediately concerned in Dr. Hodge's
case, marquis Romano contends that the
lynching of the other three was a thing
of particular atrocity.
Dreyfus' Health Disquieting.
Rennks, August 8.—The condition of
Dreyfus is disquieting. His wonderful
will power alone is lending him strength
to go through the 'present ordeal. Physically he is extremely weak. His stomach
refuses all solid food and he is only able
to take milk. His family is anxious.
The correspondent here of the Associated
Press learns that the court martial was
only able this morning to consider part
of the secret dossier. The documents
were submitted to the judges in the order
in which they were classified. General
Ohauohie gave lucid explanations of
points which were not clear to colonel
Jouast. General Chanoine took the documents individually and examined them.
Major Carriere will later on state the
conclusions he draws from the dossier,
and Maitres Labori aud Demange, who
listened with close attention to general
Chanoine's explanations did not enter
into a, discussion on the subject, today's
consideration of the dossier being of a
general character and more in the nature
of a iireliminary examination.
THE DISTRICT AND THE TOWNS
Hospital Directors Meeting.
The  regular  monthly meeting of the
directors of  the Kootenay Lake General
Hospital was held last night.in the office
of the secretary.    There were present W.
A. Jowett, D. McArthur, A. L. McKillop,
A. G. Shaw,   K. A. Crease, A. Ferland, I'1.
W. Swannoll,  and   Mesdames Robertson
and Stocks,    hi the absence of the president W. A. Jowett presided.    The treasurer's report for the past month showed
disbursements to  tin;  amount of $301.32,-
leaving a balance on hand of $951.HO.   For
the building fund  the collections to date
are   $1,7H).(>0.    Accounts   amounting  to
$387.20 were passed for payment.    Votes
of thanks were passed to Mesdames Robertson and Stocks for having secured so
large a subscription to the building fund
of the hospital; to Dr.  G. A.-B. Hall for
his faithful, work' in the past in connection with the  hospital;   and  to the city
council for the grant of $500 in aid of the
building fund.    A  committee consisting
of Judge Forin, C. E. Miller, A. L. McKillop  and  Mrs.  Stocks  was appointed to
draw up new regulations ..for the hospital
and submit them for approval at a special
meeting of the   board  to  be held  next
week.  D. McArthur and Mrs. Stocks were
appointed visiting  directors  for the ensuing month.    The building committee re-
ported.that they had instructed the architects to call  for tenders for the erection of the addition to the hospital building. - .'-.,.
The Exact Date Uncertain.
Cascade Record.-.
Just  exactly when  the trains will be
running into  Cascade over the Columbia
& Western extension with some degree of
regularity,  is still a  debatable question.
■Probably, in a  couple .of weeks after the.'
long Kettle river bridge, east of town,:-is-'
crossed, it will be done—if the inspectors
get through their work by that date.    At
this' writing—Friday afternoon—the end
of the track  is in sight from the Record
office, a couple of miles up the grade ; but

KOOTENAY MINES AND SMELTERS
Payroll a Thousand Dollars a Day.
James   McCrcath   of  Greenwood  is in
Nelson.    He  says   that   business   is good
throughout  the   Boundary  district  and
that  the  country   is   making   rapid progress.    In the opinion of mining men, the
Phojiiix camp will   be  one  of tlie richest
in British Columbia.   The Ironsides, Knob
Hill, Gold Drop, Brandon, Golden Crown
and Winnipeg  are  employing about 250
men on eight-hour shifts at $3.50, so that'
the iiayroil of the camp is close on $1000
per day. The Stem winder and the Brooklyn are the only mines closed'on account
of the refusal of the owners to accept the
eight-hour law.    Over $150,000 worth of
new mining  machinery  has  been taken
into the  camp   this   season;  and all the
working niines  are   now  well equipped
with  the   most   modern   machinery.   ,A.
cable railway  will  shortly be built connecting  Phoenix and Greenwood, a distance of four miles.    The recent fire gave
Greenwood' a slight setback, but preparations are  being'made to  erect substantial structures on  the  site of the burned
buildings.    The town   now   boasts  of a
population of 1500.    Thirty-five thousand
dollars are  being  expended in  a waterworks   system   and    in   improving   the
streets.    The   townsite   of   FJiolt,   nine
miles east of Green wood, has been cleared
and surveyed, and. lots  will be placed on
the market  this  week.    Spurs are being
graded from Eholt  to  the loading niines
of the district.
tions of Bessarabia (a government of
Russia, bounded on the south by the
Danube and the Black sea) have revolted,
being driven desperate by famine.
Troops, it is .added, have been sent there,
and several encounters have taken place.
A score of peasants have already been
killed .and many have been wounded.

The Trouble Over.
Ci.bvMlaxd, August 8.—Tlie last
■paiiy of militia left the city today,
authorities have decided there is
probability of any further trouble in connection with the street car strike. So
far as tlie strike itself is concerned there
is not the slightest sign it is any nearer
a settlement today than when it was inaugurated. As a result of the organized
fight against the boycott by the wholesale aud retail merchants, it is rapidly
losing its effectiveness. Tlie big consolidated continues to operate all of its
lines with non-union men, tlie cars in
many cases being well filled with passengers.

Expected at Dreyfus' Trial.
Rhnnix,   August  S.—-Emily Crawford
writes as follows on the trial   of  captain
Dreyfus : Maitre Demange, the principal
counsel   for  captain   Dreyfus,   expressed
himself as well satisfied with yesterday's
proceedings.      General   Mereier "remains
here, the guest of general Saint Germain
who tells his friends  to be prepared for
sensational   evidence   that   must   crush
Dreyfus and many others with  him.    M.
Cavaignac   said  that   he  expected  two
coups  de  theatre.    We  now hear  that
one will be an avowal  by general   Billot
that  he said  on his  soul and conscience
Dreyfus  was  a traitor because  he  was
misled.    The other will be Morcier driven to bay.    The  latter issues  from  this
.trial ruined, if Dreyfus is acquitted.    I
hear   he   intends   to  throw    a  searchlight   on    the   secret    councils   of   the
Dupuy government  of  which he .was-a-
member   in   1S94,   and   to   show   what
diplomatic wires were pulled between the
arrest of Dreyfus  and  his  embarkation
for Cayenne.    Mereier refuses to  be interviewed.    He looks bowed  down.'with
care.    General Billot, on the other ..'hand,
seems to have taken out-a., new- lease  of
life.    He also is extremely reticent as indeed are al 1 the witn ess of note.
Mr. Jaures only arrived last night. He
claims to know much that is in the secret
dossier. An intercepted correspondence
between two military'attaches who Avere
mixed up in the affair, is said by M.
Jaures to be a shame to human nature.

CLAIMED $6250 FOR LAND VALUED
52.S- By Appraisers at $350.«
A special meeting of the city council
was held yesterday afternoon for the
purpose of instructing the city solicitor
as to the amount which the city council
is prepared to offer the Nelson City Laud
«fc Improvement Company for the land
expropriated for the water-works reservoir and such other adjacent hind as the
corporation may consider desirable to
secure.
The report of the valuators was substantially the same as outlined in. The
Tm hunk of yesterday. They valued the
seven lots covered by the reservoir at
$350, and found with respect to the other
lots which the land company claimed
had been damaged that the location of
the reservoir enhanced the value of the
surrounding property instead0 of damaging it.
In discussing the  matter the members
of the council expressed the opinion that
when negotiations are opened by the city
solicitor for the  payment  for the land it
would bo  well   to secure   five additional
lots^making  twelve   in  all, and that he
should offer the land company's solicitors
a lump sum of $750 for the whole/   With
respect to the  flume,  the solicitor is instructed to state that the city will remove
the same from the  private property and I
throw it upon  the roadways.'   The offer
of the  $750 will  be  without any conditions imposed upon the city with respect -
to the supply of water'cither in the Dayies   ;
addition or  in  Bogustown.    If the land .
company desires any concessions from tbeV
city for the supply of water, the city will  ;
ex;pect the  land company  to throw the
site in free.    If the offer of the city is declined, an arbitration Avill  folloAV to fix:
the value of the  land,  and the residents
must then make such  terms as they can
with the city for Avater. ^
The city solicitor  Avas  also  instructed  •
to take up the question of the city Avharf  -
Avith the government.    As matters stand
the wharf has been vested  in   tlie  city,
but nothing has been done  with  respect
to the land upon Avhich it stands or the
approach to the wharf.   The governmentT':-;
Avill also be requested to explain the position of the Nelson Saw & Planing  Mills,
Limited.    This company claims  to have
an agreement with  the gOArernment forv.-
the nniin tenauce of a thoroughfare over - -
the wharf to the company's mill, ,which<>-
would  exempt the  company   from ;:the>;>

Baker Street, Nelson.  their denunciation of the government"and  ic province, it is just possible that the  provincial exhibit will be a splendid one  without the aid of these churlish mine  managers. Were till the people of the  province to act as these men are acting  eA'ery time a law was passed which they  disapproved of, the province would soon  je depopulated. What makes thenctions  of these churls disgusting to fair-minded  people is the fact that every one of  lein is under obligations to the province for every dollar they tire possessed  of. No mining country on earth litis more  liberal laws than British Columbia, and  no people have been more liberal in helping men to their feet than the business  men of Kootenay, who are today so  roundly denounced by those ingrates. As  an instance: Had it not been for ad vances  made by .1. Fred Hume, Avhen a merchant  at Nelson, a well-known mine owner)  operating' at Sandon, would ha.ve been  compelled to sell his interest in a mine  that has since made him wealthy; yet  that 'Operator today'- litis nothing but  abuse to heap on the head of Hon..J. Fred  Hume, minister of mines. A little c'oei  cion on the part of the government might  bring some of these gentry to time. A.  10 nor cent tax on the share capital of  all mines uiiAvorkcd after a certain date  might bring some of these alien soreheads  into line.

The visiting delegates liave had a  very good time and have been recompensed for their self sacrifice in listening  to oratory through the day by relaxations  not permissible at other times. The conference failed to excite the remotest interest among the people of Rossland, and  like the kingdom of God came aud went  without observation. There Avere five  main issues discussed.  1. Roads nnd trails.  2. Postal facilities.  3. Separate, representation of the  Boundary country in the provincial parliament.  4. Separate representation of Kootenay  in the Dominion parliament.  5. The lead question.  ��� The discussion on each and all of these  points was purely academic except on the  last where a very wide divergence of  opinion manifested ^itself, not reconciled  or even touched by the resolution finally  adopted.  Roads and trails found tlie convention  unanimous on one point, namely, that a  great many were required. This is not  remarkable as a great unanimity has prevailed for some years on this point. As  to the means to be employed.to raise this  money the convention was vague aud  non-comniittah favoring iti an Indefinite  whore   the   products  of lend were used.  There are only two final   solutions of the  lead   quesiiini,   either    abandonment   to  the United States market, or   heavy pro-  leelioii i-o local smelting and   refining by  the iihposi'. ion of duties  on lead products  made abroad, whether made out of  Canadian ores or not.     It is not necessary to  adopt  either   to recognize the   weakness  .of the convention resolution.    The fact is  that   the load   question   is politics,  high  politics   involving  tlie   root   idea of  the  national   policy.    The convention  dared  not be political if it would.    The convention has  proved   that the only function a  board of trade can successfully discharge  is tlie acquisition and compilation of facts  and   statistics.    As  soon   as they   touch  controversial   matters  their influence  is  shot   all    to   pieces   by    the   divergent  opinions of their members.  was of course carried���.but her career in  English waters was disappointing, for  she won only four races to the Britannia's  twelve. Yet American enthusiasts can  remember comfortably that the conditions are not now so disadvantageous to  the British challenger as they, Avere to  tlie America in 1851, as that craft had  not only the above-mentioned handicap  to overcome, but had in addition to sail  against the Avhole fleet, of which some  Arossels were more than twice her size.  The two boats this year seem to be so  much alike that the result will depend  largely upon handling and seamanship,  and however the races terminate, they  should arouse more enthusiasm ami more  anguish among the sea-sick throng of  sporting land-lubbers than ever before.  While sir Thomas Lipton is a gentleman  who lias heretofore succeeded in pretty  much everything   he tried, and while all  THE PRINCE   OF  WALES SNUBBED.  _  _ etl^L  sV^^slvoidd^tosrefvU'iIet:  The prince of Wales says he never enjoyed ii Goodwood week more than this  one. This expression of opinion evidently is intended sis a snub for his former  host, the duke of Richmond, who had ignored the prince's presence.  The duke of.Richmond-is. the lord of  the manor, and the race track is in his  private park. He did not even invite the  prince to his special stand or give him  the privilege of entry by the private  gate. So each day the prince drove up  accompanied by" host and hostess, the  .Jameses, and. entered the ordinary grand  stand, where he remained during the day,  while the duke and duchess of York Avere  close by the duke of Richmond's private  enclosure.  As further evidence of displeasure at  the prince's throwing-' him-over to stay  with the Jameses, the duke of Richmond  did not invite the prince to any of his  luncheons or parties; though 'everyone  of the prince's fellow guests received au  invitation. In fact, the duke did all in  his .-power..-to. make the prince's stay as  lcli-&t&%&a'i^  "iiC* J'!��'T."'V.V4l>0.*��i*��"  *"��i\n* iiV* ��-Ay.
