PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $2.  The following officers were elected: J.  S.C. Eraser, president; .J .Roderick Robertson and G. O.Buchanan, vice-presidents;  Duncan Ross, .1. A.Harvey, Hon. T. Mayne  Daly, K S. Topping, T. L. Haig, and  Smith Curtis, executive committee; IT.  W. C. .lackson, secretary-treasurer.  RAILWAY MEN_ARE PROMOTED  In Kootenay and Yale.  Superintendent Beasley returned from  the Coast Thursday evening where together with manager Wliyte and general  superintendent Marpole, they were in  conference with A. E. Stevens, assistant  grand chairman of the Order of Railway  Telegraphers, and- A. G. MeArthur of  Saiidon, local chairman. The subjects  which wore up for discussion were: the  wages of the agents of the company in  Kootenay who arc also operators, and  the claims of the Kootenay men for positions and promotions on the new line to  be operated by the company in Southern  Kootenay and Yale.  The result of the conference was quite  satisfactory to the men. One result of it  will be that the agents, who are also  operators, at Nelson, Rossland, Trail,  Robson, Nakusp, Sandon and Greenwood  and Grand Forks, when the road reaches  them, will receive an advance of 25 per  cent in their salaries. Another result  will be that the claims of the Kootenay  ���men will be considered for new positions  which will be created upon the opening  of the Robson-Pentictpn road.  At the meeting in Vancouver the railway officials also made arrangements for  the dispatching of all trains over the  Kootenay and Southern Yale branches  from Nelson. This will mean the stationing of train dispatchers at Nelson, and  the "probabilities are that the work will  be found sufficient for .three men. At the  start they will have the handling of  about thirty ;traius each day. At present  these trains are handled on the several  branches.  Czar Wants to Abdicate.  Si'. Petersburg, August 4. ~M.

Cotton, chief commissioner  of lands and works, has written to city  clerk Strachan upon the matter of the  closing of certain street in Nelson. When  the Economical Gas Company began  dickering with the Hall Mines, Limited,  for a site, the discovery was made that  the Turner government had given the  Hall Mines, Limited, a crown grant for  certain roadways in the Nelson townsite.  The chief commissioner in his reply stated  that the crown grant in question was  issued to'the. Hall Mines company .in  September, 189(5. He also enclosed a map  showing the portions of the streets and  alleyways so granted. The grant takes  in Slocan street from Victoria to Carbonate street, the alleyway in block 95 and  in block 90, a small piece of roadway at  the western end of block 90, the alleyway iii block 97 and pieces of the roadway on Carbonate and Railway streets.  A second enclosure fromthecoinmissioner  of lands and works is the copy of a letter  from H. E. Croasdaile of the Hall Mines,  in which a denial is given to alderman's  Fletcher's statement that the effect of  the granting of the roadways was the  closing of a public highway.  Rival Parties Now Equal.  Special to The Tribune.  Victoria, August 4.���The feature of  the political situation is an authoritative  statement from New Westminister, where  Semlin is now consulting with party  leaders, that Henderson has not been  offered the attorney-general's portfolio.  It is suggested that he may be got out  the way with a county court judgship  waiting to be filled; and a seat thus provided for Aulay Morrison as attorney-  general. In the meantime Higgins.; is  widely advertising his defection, another  interview appearing today. In this lie  states that the offer to Henderson was  made without the knowledge or consent  of the party and manifested the intention  of Cotton and Semlin to throw overboard  their friends and sell the government: to  L$h^b4:n:>p$,itjpn.^  , r ,.^1-ij. making, "���tlie��� ofte^^xe^^i^M^si^.

Paul Johnson, late superintendent of  the Guggenheims' lead and copper smelting plants at Aguas Calientes, Mexico,  which plants he remodelled to a total  smelting capacity of over 1000 tons per  day, has been in California for the last  three months, where; ho has located and  planned extensive smelting works for the  California. Copper Company at Madera,:  Madera county. Mr. .Johnson will from  there start for- Greenwood, British Columbia, where he will plan, build and take  charge of smelting works for the British  Columbia Copper Company, Limited.  Ernest R. Woakes, who has been manager of the Daricn Gold Mining Company's  mines in the Republic of Columbia, South  America, for the last seven years, lias recently resigned the position of manager  and has been appointed consulting ..en gin  ,'eer to the company. Mr. Woakes passed'  'through New York last week on his way  to Nelson, British Columbia, where he  will reside for some months looking after  the interests of the Duncan Mines, Limited, in  that country.  Slocan Ore Shipments.  The mines in  the Slocan  shipped   15,-  920A tons of ore from January 1st to July  29th.    The  shippers and  their  tonnage  are as follows : .     ���  pies of ore which he expects will give big  assay values, as they carry more or less  native silver. He says the ledge upon  the'property is two feet wide, and that  the paystreak, which carrys some very  rich ore, is eight inches wide.  The directors .of the  Mining Company have  appointment of  Nelson-Poorman  ipproved of  the  Dr. G. A. B. Hall as phy  sician   to  the  mine.    The  selection was  made by the miners at a  few days ago.  meeting held a  ada and refined iunSoud "In the United  States should be re-admitted to Canada  free of duty,'that Canadian import duties  on white lead aiid lead used for paints  generally, should be increased to 30 per  cent. In connection With the resolution  and the anieiidiuent Mr. Aldridge made a  liuiijbct of important statements concerning the present condition pf the smelting  industry in Caivadai pointing out that it  would bo to thp interest of this, province  to support the smelting industry by  smelting all Ores at home and thereby  getting the full value out of the product  of the mines.  Alfter a lengthy debitic in which most  of the delegates took part the following  resolution was unanimously agreed upon:  "Resolved, that it is the sense of this  association that the largest possible  amount of relief would be given to the  lead mining industry in British Columbia  by a reciprocal arrangement with the  United States if lead, in bullion and in  ore, would be admitted free of duty into  the market of the United States, and that  Ave shall continue to urge upon the Canadian commissioner to the international  conference the paramount importance of  using every effort to secure such an  arrangement; that pending the conclusion of such a treaty, or in the event  of the final failure of his negotiations for  such a treaty it is the sense of this  association: (1) That lead smelted in  Canada and refined abroad should be readmitted duty free into Canada; (2)  That import duties upon manufactured  lead coming into Canada should be increased to a parity with the duties levied  upon other lines of manufactured goods ;  (8) That the bonuses already earned by  the Canadian smelters from the government should be adjusted and paid forthwith. .  ^l!ii^s6W^BiSsiQn-Hsp;�� ����He^.|'v|.seirts;���th"at/i-trw?t'S  : d^ciM^^pOi^niie^l^i^x^y^fox' t* ;a ."rear"!  ison "wliicfe jldjiiitt^JPf. ho";|41ay/!^^iid���  ";tli;enftiergly'ea |i#.stotl3?j whicli'.he ^i^s^lie-  "Has from, "a  souijcp   to/whieJi ak-wife :  boiiild  to "attach   importance;"  Tills" Is  , tlfe explausttibli ;*?������" '..  ���.-;���"... ������ ...���;.'"���.������ -,.

After several months of inactivity the  city council has made another move in  connection with the hospital account  which Mrs. Gilbert has rendered to the  corporation for the hospital treatment of  paupers sent to her hospital by the members of the former council. The matter  came up yesterday at a special meeting  of the council, when the report of the  special committee upon the same was received. Unfortunately for Mrs. (Gilbert,  the work of the special committee docs  not bring her any nearer the payment of  ���the. same. The members of the committee found that the paupers in question'  ��� Aver'e sent to her hospital by the officers  of the corporation, but they contend that  the provincial government had assumed  responsibility for the hospital treatment  of the men in question, and ��� Mrs. Gilbert  must wait for the payment of her account against the city until it is ascertained whether the city cannot get the  money out of the provincial government."  The report of the special committee  which was adopted and turned over to the  city solicitor for use in his interview with  the provincial authorities reads as follows:  "This account is for hospital fees for  men from the Crow's Nest "railway last  fall. The business arose in this way.  The patients came into town from Goat  river and there being no provision made  for their treatment acting mayor Teetzel  went down and interviewed . the gold  commissioner, 0. G.

Nr.w York, August 4.���The London  coj-respondeiit of the Herald says London  is Avjthin sight of a seHous Waiter famine,  according to the testimony of* unbiased'  experts. It is already rumored that the  Supply of the east end, which is served  from the river jLea-, is about,to be cut off  during the greater part of the day and  night, with wha.t consequences to the  teeming population of the east end niay  be easily imagined. The major portion  of London's water supply, however,  comes from the Thames, which, according  to the latest report is practically drying up.          -  Prominent People Said to be Engaged.  Cowks, August 4.���While lieutenant  Churchill, son of lady Randolph Churchill,  denies the reported engagement of his  mother to lieutenant Cornwallis-West,  ...brother of the princess Henry of Pless,  the matter continues to be the subject of  much conversation among their friends.  Neither lady Churchill nor the other interested party has been seen since the engagement was reported.  The Queen is at Cowes.  Cowiss, August 4.���The queen, more  brightly dressed than usual, with a white  silk cape, and accompanied by the duchess of York and the princess Victoria of  Sehleswig-Holstein in cream boating costumes, drove through the town this evening and passed ,the squadron just as the  prince of Wales was holding a pleasant  little reception under the shadow of the  eastle.  ppwjS's  In |M pdininion Btpuse,  .    .DTi'AWA,  Aiign^t   4,^Tl\e   house   de?���  ypted all the" tprenopn to "discussing 'tliif"  subsidy to build?a &a)"ioh rpad from An^"  ler,��� iiOrtli pf  ffi&ose mountain foi'  500 '  iniles.

Si5ATTi;i3, Augitst 4.���-Ex-congressman  Jjuiles Hamilton Lewis left for Washington today to present to the state department the claims of American miners,  against the Canadian government for  damages sustainpd through the enactment of a law by tlie provincial legislature  of British Columbia debarring aliens  from locating placer claims in the Atlin  mineral district. It is expected the proposed claims will be made the subject of  arbitration before the joint 'high commission. Mr. Lewis represented about  one thousand miners, whose claims aggregate $3,000,000.  Has a Wide Choice.  London, August 4.���The Daily News  says that if the heir of the duke of York  eventually comes to the throne he will be  called king Daivid. The News says that  upon the authority of the prince of  Wales the child has always been called  prince David. It is customary, although  not obligatory, to perpetuate a princely  name in kiughood. The full name of the  youthful prince is Edward Albert Christian George Patrick David.  Port Arthur & Duluth Eailway Bought.

which would have to be paid for an extension of the Lake Teslin tramway. A
large cash subsidy would have been
needed to develop the Sifton scheme into
an all-Canadian railway. A large cash
subsidy is all that is necessary to the
constructian of an all-Canadian railway
today. The senate preserved the Yukon
goldfields for the Canadian people, and
in fair and open competition the country
can now gut a genuine all-Canadian railway for less than the price Messrs. Mackenzie iv Mann would have put upon their
consent to extend the Teslin Lake trani-

The following soi'inoii was delivered on  Christmas, 1SS7, by the bishop of London.  I have seen the sennon lloating jti'oinul,  but this is the first time I have been able  to get authentic information: as to its  author or as to whether it had ever been  really delivered.  .Although, years have passed since its  delivery, it has only lately found its way  into the columns of the public press. It  is not difficult to understand the motives  which have led to its partial suppression.  True and faithful Avords are not relished  in these days of apostacy.  When Ave consider that the position of  this bishop and the condition of-his congregation is but one among many thousands, avc can in some measure understand  Iioav far away from honesty and truth  the religion of Christendom has departed  since the times of the apostles.  We trust our readers will carefully  consider the confession of this hitherto  head of one of the most aristocratic sects  of Christendom, as well as the burning  words of denunciation which fell from his  lips against the proud hypocrites avIio  too surely represent the strength of today's Christianity.  This sermon was delivered in Westminster abbey, and while it shows that  Christ has nothing Avith that aristocratic  temple,   it   in   principle   declares"������what  ..;>bearS'^|iS'4i-jOi'ies: ">He;\rg-'0i1i-tpiae'-the/:cai.i-i.;pf,  If^ilsijl f*i'iLlRJatfc g,(y* $fro&^csj-e" "oid^M- the-  '.\;=:cajnp-to.'H:inj, -   ��� ���  "��'�� *n,f Ski:.���"G'ffi tO^iow; ye rich flicii',p^*ocp';iiild"li6wrf��oni"   =..;...��....���:^.. ii.i.v j,;v.���ii ...v-^t.v. ..:��^;.u,.^���;'.    uij.a*i."..m>',i... i.:;..i  your miseries thSiishall.coTiieupoiryoii.. ���Jiehlild'thchirc  ,of).i:.li'cnlabQrci.is >yhp" * ���--���--���> ���'-'--- -a .:<.,.., ......:���..,.

M-oni   the   days  when I Avas a humble curate until UoaV, I  hafve  had a large and varied experience  =^of=cathedi"als^c;hiii'Cli,osf-=preachers=and=  sermons, but I baAre neA'er yet heard  a,  discourse based on  these A\rords, and  I  catliiot learn  from, any1 of my brother  bishops and priests that they have used  theni, or heard them so used.  1 can see by your uneasy demeanor that  you ai'e asking yourselves Avhy, on this  Christmas day, Avhen in accordance Avitli  custom I should be pi'eaching smooth  things to you, J should be mad enough to  offend; your delicate susceiitibilities by  (pioting the saying of one of the common  people���words written eighteen centuries  ago which might have done A'ery Avell  then, but which cannot possibly be applied to you and your class today���you  who come here clad in purple and line  linen, who, some of you, live in king's  houses, who fare delicately every day,  and Avlio consider that you have fulfilled  every moral obligation when you haA*e  dropped a, coin in the collection box before you step into your carriages to be  driA'on to your luxurious homes. It is because I believe that Snot only James, but  .Jesus Christ Himself, if he could stand in  my place today, Avould hurl these Avords  at, you with' a force and a passion of  Avhich Ave in the nineteenth century have  but little conception. Not as= a bishop,  but as a man, I repeat them to you, hardly hoping that they may touch your  hearts,but more as a justification for my  new and strange position.  For years I have been one of you. My  home has been not where Christ's home  was, Avith the masses, but Avith the  classes. I have an abundance of this  Avorld's goods. I haAre lived Avith the  fashionable and Avealthy, and lnwe been  a dignitary of the church AArhich is the  church of the rich, and not the church of  the poor. Without'' a protest I have  mixed in society Avith men and AA'omen  'whom Christ "-would, lnwe denounced as  bitterly as he denounced the scribes and  pharisecs. In. the house of lords I lnwe  silently sat side by side with Avhoremon-  gers and adulterers, and silently haAre I  welcomed as my personal friends highborn Avomeu���some of Avhom I see before  me today���with Avhom no decent Avork-  ingman would alloAv his Avife or daughter  to associate.  I have seen among you, spreading like  a canker, the lust of the flesh and the  pride of life, and instead,of reproving you,  as Christ ; would have done, I have taken  refuge in generalities, and lnwe not dared  to denounce your individual sins.

Too long have I neglected the miserable  social facts of our so-called ciA'ili/.ation.  Too long have; I spoken to you smooth  things and cried peace when there was no  peace. 1 have known by repute that  there was misery among our people, starvation in our midst, and prostitution upon our streets, but hitherto I have taken  these as something for Avhich you and I  were not responsible, but Avhich wore  really due to the inherent wickedness of  nature.  But now I haA-e learned that our pleasures and our wantonness have been built  upon this hideous foundation and, having  learned this���asy.^u may also learn if you  will���I have reso]V<^I that this Christmas  day my new life shall begin. Today I  lay doAvn my robes, I give up my bishopric, my palaces and income ; I giAre up my  seat in the house of lords ; I giAre up my  pleasures of society- and the Avorld, and  at last I take my place as man among  men.      '  It is, I knoAv, a bold step that I haAre  taken, but I lnwe fully counted the cost.  Resolved no longer to live on the labors  of others,'I shall probably have to join  the great army of the unemployed. To-  moi-roAV  I  shall  attempt  to preach my  first .sermon to them in'Trafalgar Square  from the same text that I have used here  today and it is likely tnat I shall pass tomorrow night in a prison cell.    But there  I shall be no worse off than Jesus Christ  Avould  be  if he   attempted to enter this  (Westminster)  abbey iioav, for he Avould  be arrested and locked  up as a- A'agabond  without visible means of subsistence.    To  you and to your class he would simply be  a laborer whose hire you lnwe kept back  by fraud.    To the abolition of this fraud,  and to the misery and degradation Avhich  result from it,  1 shall   henceforth devote  my life.    It aaMU be no easy task not near  so  easy as being  bishop of London, but  the reward of a good conscience and of a  noble Avork Avell done, is better far than a  palace and ten thousand ($18,000) a year.  h\   this   place I   shall   probably   neArer  speak  again.    But   when   freedom   shall  have  opened out her  arms and gathered  all   men  into  her  wide,  Avide  embrace,  Avhen justice and truth shall have taken  the pla'ce  of oppression  and fraud, some  men of the people shall stand in this temple of the dead, and inspired by the best  traditions of tlie past, the noble inspirations of the present,  and the ideal hopes  of the future, shall send  ringing through  these  lofty aisles  that living Christmas  message  AA'hich till  then can never-have  its full significance���"Peace on earth, and  good Avill to men."
