 A CONFERENCE MAY BE HELD TO  Adjust the Transvaal Difficulty.  London, September 14.���While the  stall* of the foreign ollice still maintain  continuous communication tonight with  Mr. Chamberlain at Birmingham, it is  not believed now that the result of the  debate in the volksraad will be received  before Friday. Dispatches from Capetown dated tonight attach great importance to an article in the Onsland, the  organ of the Afrikander Bund, which  urges the Transvaal government to renew its offer regarding a conference, declaring that there is no reason why the  Transvaal should not accept a conference,  and calling attention to the fact that the  word "suzerainty" is not mentioned by  Mr. Chamberlain, and that, therefore,  there is nothing to indicate an obligation  on the part of either government to  abandon its view on the subject. This  article is understood to be the outcome  of an important Africander caucus held  to discuss the Chamberlain 'matter,and it  is understood that the argument has  been fortilied by strong messages to  Pretoria, urging "the volksraad to  forego the suzerainty objection,  and        to        concede the        British  proposals. There is every reason to believe that Mr. Holl'meyer, the Afrikander'  leader, has wired Kruger to the same  effect, and that similar representations  have been telegraphed from the Orange  ��vec State.  Pretoria,    September    14.���The   discussion of the first draft'of the reply to  the   British   note   ended    this   evening,  president Kruger having left at 4 o'clock  and not  having returned.    It   is   understood that the government will draw up  the reply in its final form tomorrow and  immediately submit it to the volksraad.  The reply will be  in   terms  strongly influenced by the ..Orange Free State, and  :  among other features the maintenance of  ���   the convention of 18S4 will be strongly  j   asserted.    The situation   this  evening is  not considered  as   favorable  as  it  was  during the forenoon.  London, September 14.���The Pretoria  correspondent of the Daily Chronicle  says that when Conyngham Greene, the  British diplomatic agent, has suggested  forty-eight hours as the period within  which the South African reply was expected, the Transvaal 'representative replied : " If your suggestion is serious the  reply will be ready in forty-eight minutes." President Kruger's intimations^  according to the Daily Chronicle, aie pessimistic regauling the situation. The  Precoi i.i correspondent of the Times  ~.tys: "It is \cry doubtful whether an  unqualified acceptance of Great Biitain's  demand-, will beghen."  The Paris correspondent of the Times  sa vs that M Doloasso, the I<Yonch foreign  minister, has diiected the Fiench consul  in the Trans\aal to endeavor to persuade  picsident Kiuger to accept Mr. Chambei-  lain's proposal. The Protoiia correspondent of the Daily Telegraph says:  "The inembeis of the volksraad iccyived  Mr. Chainbei Iain's dispatch defiantly today, (Thutsday), individu.il membcis declining Great Britain must moderate her  demands. On the other hand a rumor Ls  current that Kruger faAors compliance  and ha*, even suggested that he desires  the irrcconcil.ibles to lea\e Pretoiia and  consult their constituents, theieby avoiding their opposition. This belief is held  in Johannesbuig and accounts for the  hopeful condition of the market, but the  general public is pessimistic."  The Times publishes the following dispatch from Johannesburg: "The attitude of the Orange Fi eo State continue-.  President Stem's silence is inteipietod as  showing an intention to support the  Transvaal tluough thick and thin, though  -his influence at present is on-tho-side of  peace. Public feeling is running very  high, and unless Kruger makes an emphatic pronouncement in favor of conciliation, the great majority of the Boers  Mill inevitably ' vote against any concessions beyond a seven years' franchise.  The Capetown correspondent of the  Daily News s.'iys: "A thousand men are  ngaged iu stiengthening the defences of  3 .etoria, tienehes arc being excavated,  aud earthworks converted. It is reported  that both mads will adjourn at the end  of the week to enable meinbeis to consult  tlwir constituents on the questions raised  in Mr. Chainbei Iain's dispatch."  ^  "/_  V,  ���t^.  7  FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 15, 1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR; WEEKLY, $2.  that the ship had been altered in her interior arrangements since the original  inspection on the issue of permit to carry  passengers, with the result that it is now  fully in accordance with the requirements  of the British law, even for the 1200  troops on board. It is said at the state  department that the Hong Kong authorities must have taken this view ami have  acted voluntarily in releasing the ship,  for there was not time before to have  heard from London.  MARVELS "WILL BE EXHIBITED  % lie Explorers Heard From.  St. PUTEBSMtftt-o-v September 14.���A  dispatch from Hamtuerfest, the norther-  most town of Norway, announces the arrival there of the British commercial expedition, wliich vainly attempted to explore the mouths of the river Obi aud  other Siberian streams. The expedition  Was .turned'back by ice, after losing its  ship,"the Arthur, which was crushed  the floes.   There was no loss of life.   .  by  The Tartar Incident Closed.  Washington, September 14.���The Tartar incident is regarded here as closed.  It is learned at the state department that  the representations made by Mr. Choate  at London on this subject were in the  nature of a protest. The authorities here  had convinced themselves that they had  no right to claim exemption for the Tartar from the operation of British law in  a British port, because the nationality of  the ship had not been changed- by the  mere fact that she had been chartered  for a certain specific duty by. United  States officers. The basis of application j  to tlie British. government was the fact i  At Paris in 1900.  Paris, September 14.���-Tho exposition  of 1000 is assuming form. Exhibitors  arc beginning to get their marvels under  roofs. For the lirst time in history an  international show will open on time.  ��� The growth ofthe great white buildings  brings to mind the. mushroom rising of  boyhood's circus tents. The great and  little art palaces -are almost completed,  and the ugly buildings which hid them  from tho ever-passing throngs on the  Champs Elysee have been torn down.  The beautiful bridge across the Seine,  which was, in a. moment of hysteria,  named after the c/.ar of Russia, and  which will, of course, have to be renamed  in case the Russian bear snarls tit France,  is nearly .finished. ' The builders are  changing their attention from the framework to the decorations of the buildings,  and the railway lines are already beginning to feel the great rush of freight  business which will clog their lines from  now until after the exhibition opens.  The most interesting of the scientific  exhibits will be the great telescope, built  on an entirely new plan. The difference  between 210,000 miles and��� '-forty-two.  .miles is said by its projectors to be what  this great instrument will bring about  when the .anxious American looks at the  moon through it. It will magnify the  moon 10,000 times. The highest magnifying'power obtained through any other  telescope so far has been about 4000  times. An object on-the surface of the  moon 700 feet long will be visible to the  eye at the telescope's big reflector as an  object one-thii tieth of an inch in length.  The veiy largest ocean steamer that sails  earthly seas would look, if transported  aud set alloat on a moon lake, somewhat  smaller than this when gazed at by the  aid of the big -telescope. -This machine  will cost, completed, more than $800,000.  its object glasses will weigh 500 pounds  and cost not less than $120,000.  Of course the crank has had and is still  haA ing his day in connection with the  Paris show. A list of the wild schemes  which have been submitted to the mana-  geis of the exposition would fill all the  columns of a paper. The Eiffel tower  and the great wheel already stand on the  exposition grounds. Another plan which  will ]3i obably be carried out consists of  an immense umbrella with its stem oi  handle planted fitmly in the earth. To  the end of each of its ribs will be attached a car somewhat smaller than  those in the Ferris wheel. When the  steam engine opens the umbrella, these  cat.s will, of com so, be carried up into  the air by the libs. Just where the fun  of being slowly laised to a height of sixty  or seventy feet at the end of a big umbrella will come iu must be for the gentle  reader to figure alone.  ���The-biggest room iii-tho-world-will also  bcafeatuie of the Paris show. Tliere  aie laiger buildings than Machinery Hall  a\ ill be, but according to the claims made  by the Parisian promoters, none has ever  had so great a single floor space���12,541  metres. The amphitheatre has been  planned to seat 15,000 spectators, daylight being admitted tluough an immense cupola of glass.  Two interesting raihvay features are  under way. One is an American raihvay  tiain consisting of ordinaiy coaches,  palace car and express car, wliich will  run frequently between the main grounds  of the exposition and the annex at  Vicennes. The other i ail-way novelty  will be au ininiOuse panorama of the barbaric   scenery  along  the czar's famous  trans-Siberian railway. .   '.'���  ___.        ,       _, ^. ^  Overwhelmed With Communications;;'-  Wasu iNG.TON, Septeniber 1_.���President McKiuley is daily receiving letters',  petitions and resolutions from various  parts of the country, urging bis 'mediation in behalf of Dreyfus, and suggesting  that he tender his good offices in: the  pending dispute between Great Britain  and the Transvaal. These have come in  such volume that there has not been any  acknowledgment in many cases. All  these communications are being turned  over to the state department" as they arrive. The administration will take no  action, holding that until the interest of  the United States or the rights of her  citizens tire involved it is not within, the  province of this country to meddle in  domestic or foreign affairs of other  countries.  NELSON HAS MANY BRICK BLOCKS  And More Are Being Built.  When the buildings now in course of  erection are completed Nelson will have  more brick buildings than all the towns  in the interior of the province combined.  Placed side by side the completed anrl uncompleted brick structures would give a  frontage of ouc-cighth of a mile. In the  west ward the frontage Will amount to  .��>75 feet, consisting of the London <fc B. C.  offices, Bank of Montreal, Oddfellows  block, McKillop block, Hebden <fe Hebden  building, Elliot block, Mara-Barnard  block, Hudson's Bay block, and Lawrence  Hardware Company's block. In the East  ward the brick frontage will be 400 feet,  as follows : Madden block, Burns Bloek,  Victoria block, Aberdeen block, Clement  & Hillyer block, McDonald block, Turner,  Beeton & Co. building, Houston block,  West block, Malone & Tregillus block,  and Hall-block. It is not much wonder  that a gentleman connected with a large  fire insurance company remarked that  Nelson had as low rates of insurance as  cities like Portland, Oregon, and Oakland,  California. The town has lowr rates because its business men have had the foresight to substitute brick and stone aud  iron for wood.    That is the only  reason.  MINE MANAGERS RAN AGAINST  RAILWAY" NOTES.  W. P. Tierney & Co, will probaby complete their contract on the Columbia &  Kootenay line inside of two Aveeks. Nothing has yet been heard from Montreal  with respect to further appropriation for  the improvement of the roadbed.  There arrived in Nelson yesterday over  the Canadian Pacific one car of hogs for  P. Burns <fc Co. and one car of butter for  the Parsons Produce Company. The hogs  were shipped from Toronto and the but:  ter from Calgary.  Complaint is made by travelers that  the Canadian Pacific does not allow refreshments to be sold on its boats between Nelson aud Kootenay Landing.  Passengers are on tho steamer for several  hours, and those who are hungry must  remain so until breakfast is served in the  dining-car attached to the Crow's Nest  Pass train.  - The Future For American Catholicism.  London,   September   15.���The   Times  prints this morning a four-column article  from its Homo correspondent on the pope  and Americanism which says:    "The  recent conflict was  of intense interest for  Englishmen because behind the name  of  Hecker, and all it implies lies  the  wider  and weightiest question in Roman Catholicism with its  infallible authority and  ironframe work of dogma."  After giving  the  stoiy  of father  Hecker, hit, movements, aud of the recent conflict the correspondent concludes  as  follows :     ''So  long as the American Catholics formulate  no doetiine, claim no  libeity  and avoid  all action w hich might give a  handle to  their foes, they may hope to live in peace.  Yet the question arises how long will respect for their past, their independence  in spirit, and especially the constant influence   of   the   Amciican   en\ iromueut  permit them to hold their tranquility on  sufferance or to enjoy their  freedom by  stealth.    The duel  between  the  Anglo-  Saxoirtemperament and the"Jesuindiscipline   will  be  worth  watching, for  the  stake of civilization in its outcome is  by  no means small." ,  A Minister That Was' Posted.  Some four months ago II. E. Croasdaile,  J. Roderick Robertson, J. J. Campbell  and other reputed mine managers had a  conference behind closed doors with minister of mines Hume, and they did not,  make it particularly pleasant for him for  about an hour. But the tables .are .sometimes turned, .and the same men got more  than they bargained for yesterday from  ono of Mr. Hume's colleagues.  Several members of the Mine Owners'  Association    liad    a    conference    with  finance   minister    Cotton,    when     they  stated their objections to the  eight-hour  law,  and  asked  for  its suspension until  evidence could be taken by a commission  as to thp effect of the legislation upon the  mining-industry.-There were in the party  T. G. Procter, J.  L.  Stocks,  J.   Roderick  Robertson,  .7.  J. Campbell, H. E. Croasdaile, T. J. Duncan, H. A. Barton, E. Nelson Fell, George Kydd;  11.  S.  Kinghorn,  Percy Chapman,  II. It.  Bellamy,  Bruce  Archibald and two or  three  others, but  when   the   conference   was   over   there  was   no   occasion   to   waste   any   sympathy   upon   the. finance  minister.    He  was    well    informed    and    refused    to  be   taken   in   by   broad  general   statements.       When    the    mine    managers  asked for the suspension of the law until  a commission could make a report  upon  it, the finance minister replied that  the  mine  managers  would  be in no position  to give evidence upon the eight-hour law  until they worked their mines  under  it.  He mentioned  the suggestion that  the  mine  managers  should   give  the  law a  trial before they  condemned  it.    When  the mine managers attacked the law, upon the economic basis, the finance minister- asked what the increase in cost would  amount to per'ton,upon- the  ore  mined.  They could not answer.    He then  asked  them if it wits' not true  that  since  the  eight-hour law came into  effect  greater  reductions had been made in the smelting  charges upon ore than the increased cost  of labor amounted to. The mine managers  were not in a position to deny that this  was  so.     The mine managers, thenyat-  tempted to show that the legi|l^tjiKe||i|||ife!;  imposed heavy charges upon fee^nuningl  industry, but the  finance  niiHStei'SiSi'S-/  duced "figuies which  showed%t*hp?:��tli^.  aggregate of ,the mineral  t4t^JI;^ii'|i?tlt^  the metalliferous mines of the��b^ir^yrncp^  did not exceed $10,000 per anpum!":'; ��pl|i|>^  sum   represented  the   total :.%tS.".^li|y'iejl;  upon all the metal mines of tli^:pj|fei|rce^;  and was in   leahty  less  than.y iihey-t?^e��  contiibuted by some of the ftw'hilug/.diS:-  tricts along the Fiaser river. ;='T|ie;rO::W%5i  nothing indefinite in t>he financfeMinifetei^  announcement of the governmehpsyp^cy'  with respect to the eight-hour.tla*wi. -rimi&l  government will enforce the la^v ttiid Vi|J::  attempt    will   be   made   to .gefiilt'e.��� :'xW  repeal.

The   mine   manager"  quitted' tin*  conference with the conviction that; they  have bitten off moie than they can chew  in the eight-hour matter.  saries of the insurgents who take all the  natives have got, the latter are iii a state  of semi-starvation. They have no faith  in the Tagalos and earnestly Wish American protection. The insurgent leader,  general LucaBanata, has bolted to Japan,  taking with him $2000 collected for tho  insurgents. The condition in the island,  it is asserted, is rapidly approaching riot  and anarchy, as the heavy and continued  drag on the natives in the form of  tribute exasperates, and tliey threaten  desperate,resistance if it continues.  NO TRUTH IN THE REPORT THAT  Insurance Bates Are to be Eeduced.  T. J. A. Ticdmaiin of San Francisco, inspector  of  the  Scottish   Union and National  Insurance  Company,  and   A.  A.  Boak   of   Vancouver,  president  of   the  Mainland board of fire underwriters, are  in Nelson on business connected wyith fire  insurance.      Both   gentlemen state emphatically that they have  no  authority  to reduce rates for fire insurance at Nelson or anywhere else, and that no reduction is contemplated.    Nelson now has. a  lower rate of insurance than  many more  pretentions American cities, and'tis low a  rate  as any city  in   British  Columbia.  Rates   are   not   arbitrarily lowered by  board   companies.     Brick   buildings   in  Nelson take the same rate as brick buildings in Vancouver  or Victoria,  and the  more  brick buildings in a block the less  will be the rate on frame buildings iu the  same  block.    This  is   the only  way  in  which insurance.rates Avill be reduced in  Nelson.  Both gentlemen expressed themselves as fairly  well  satisfied with the  means of fighting fire in Nelson, but both  are much in  favor of chemical  engines.  They maintain that a  too  liberal use of  water often does more damage than fire,  and that such losses are prevented by the  use of chemical engines.    With a moderate-sized , chemical   engine   and   a    fire  alarm   system   installed,    Nelson,    they  claim, would be in a very  good  position  from an insurance man's point of view.

France Increases Expenditures.  ��� Paius, September 14.���The French  budget for the year 1900 shows an increase in the estimated -expenditure of  4,500,000 francs. The war and marine  departments ask for 3,600*000 francs for  the supplementary force in Algiers and  iii the building of new warships. The  national debt amounts to #0,000,000  francs.

NEW SCHOOL OPENED AT NELSON  n  First Day's Exercises.  The first session of the fall term of the  school of practical and scientific mining  by political methods opened in the office  of the government agent at Nelson yesterday, with headmaster Cotton presiding. There were in attendance Henry  Croasdaile, Tom Procter, Laing .Stocks,  Tom Duncan, Roderick Robertson, Percy  Chapman, Byron Sharp, J. J. Campbell,  Monty Davys and a number of others.  The headmaster welcomed his pupils in a  neat and appropriate speech, and the  regular exercises of the session  commenced with singing " We Can't  Work Mines Under the Eight-Hour Law,"  iu which every pupil present took part,  and, for a wonder, none of them sung out  of-time. The first lesson heard was  "Political Mining," with Roderick Robertson at the head of the class.  The headmaster asked Roderick how  many votes could be polled at the Ymir  mine Avith -the polling clerks Avorking  eight-hour shifts? Answer���I don't  know, I ha\7e not tried to work anybody  on short shifts except .Sudbury miners,  and they did not stay with me long  enough to get on the voters'-list. ^  The next question Avas asked Henry  Croasdaile, but he passed it on to J.

Kx-Pi5K.ahkh TuiiNKU, according to the  Colonial Coldlields C'a/.ettc of London,  Kngland, is one of those avIio hold that  mining com pan ins in this province do not  make a .sufficient contribution towards  the provincial treasury in the shape of  royalty, licenses, company registration  and transfer foes. Kx-prcmior Turner,  while in ol'liee, imposed the present mineral tax on the'output of metalliferous  mines. Mine-owners opposed it just as  they are opposing tho eight-hour law today. "Tel, the mineral tax is so light a  burden that it is hardly felt. " Wore the  mine owners avIio aro raising so much  fuss over the eight-hour law to give it a  trial, the chances are a year from now  they Avould not care to acknowledge that  they made fools of themselves in opposing it so vigorouslj.  Tuu Victoria Globe uoav admits, that  the political situation remains the same.  One would have supposed that after the  labored efforts of the Globe and the Colonist and the Nelson Miner there would  have been, some change. These three  neAVspapers cut just about as A\ride a  swath in British Columbia politics as J.  Roderick Robertson and II. E. Croasdaile  and B. T. A. Bell do in scientific research.

Senor Don llMunrdo Lopez do Ilomana,  the new president of Peru, was sent to  England by his parents when ho was only  ten years old, to be educated at Stony-  hurst college. From that institution he  went to the Royal institute of engineers  at London, where he obtained the degree  of civil engineer, and became an honorary member of the institute. His professional knowledge was the cause of his being sent to Brazil by a syndicate which  .was building a railroad in tho mountains  of that country.

Cissie Loftus, the clever English mimic,  who secured a divorce from Justin Huntley McCarthy some months ago, has announced   her    engagement   to    Herbert  Stewart Stone of Chicago.     Mr. Stone is  one of the three sons of Melville E.Stone,  the  general manager  of the Associated  Press, who was atone time the proprietor  of tho Chicago Daily News, which he disposed of at an extremely  large   figure.  The prospective bridegroom was graduated from Harvard college, and while at  Caniaridge, in company  with a  fellow-  student  named   Kimball,  a   bi-monthly  magazine was published under their direction and called The Chap Book.    After  leaving  college, yonifg  Stone continued  the publication of his magazine in Chicago,  making it   distinctly   of  a  literary  character.    During  its  success  he went  abroad to engage authors for the magazine, and secured Justin Huntley McCarthy to write for him. , It was during this  time that Mr. Stone and Mr. McCarthy  became friends, and this resulted in tho  first  meeting between  Miss Loftus and  Mr.  Stone.    When  the actress and her  husband came to this country last winter  they visited Chicago, and were entertained by Mr. Stone.    About a year ago the  publication of the magazine was suspended, and the H. S. Stone Publishing Company, now one of the largest  publishing  concerns  in   the  West,  was   organized.  Associated  with him  in the  business is  his brother, Melville E. Stone, Jr.  GEAVE   AND   GAY   STORYETTES.  A pugilist, in Chicago, was giving an  interview to a reporter recently.

A British tourist wandered into the  Rustlers' Retreat, in an Arizona town recently, and languidly asked for a 'igh  ball. "Jake," called the accommodating  barkeeper to his assistant, "the gent  wants a eye-ball: I tlunno wat for, but he  wants it.    Go out and ketch a Chinaman."  :d_ "__cf*___EToa: u s, & co.

A discussion arose  one day as to the meaning of "official"  language and "private" language.

He made a couple of quartz  locations and will return in the spring to  work them. Ness says that there is no  truth in the reported wealth of Kennedy  and Watson, the former Nelsonites. His  version of it is that they are both broke.  ".Jack" Ciimniings and Jlilliard Richardson aro both doing Well. They have a  con [lie of stores,, which do a large business, and iu addition they have good  mining property.  A meeting of the city council has been  called for this evening at 8 o'clock. The.  meeting has been called for the purpose  of considering the report of city clerk  Strachnii upon the several matters in  dispute between the city, the provincial  government and the Nelson City Land ��fc  Improvement Company.: It is understood that the city cierk made quite a hit  in the role of ambassador.  T. G. Roy left last evening for the  Richelieu Mining Company's property in  the Crawford Bay section. Me took  three additional miners back with him,  which will make eighteen union men employed o;i the property.  The sale of Frank Lacasto's interest in  the Slocan Chief No. 10 and the Kootenay  Queen mineral claims, on the south fork  of Kaslo creek, has been postponed until  Thursday morning, September 21st.

According to n writer  in  the  Chicago  Times-Herald it is no longer considered a  disgrace among the English  aristocracy  t.o work.    A glance at the list of t.he   nobility shows that some of  them   are   not  above   making    the   convenient   dollar.  Lord   Cheylesinore   derives   the  greater  portion of ids   income   from   his   ribbon  maim factories in and  around   Coventry.  Lord  lMasham   is  a,  wool-spinner,   while  lord Armstrong may be described   as the  British Ivrupp.    The earl of  Dysart   formerly, edited   Vanity  Fair, and   is  now  one of that publication's  regular  contributors,     while      lord      Montmorres    is  editor     of     lady      Colin      Campbell's,  weekly    paper,    the    Realm.     Another  journalist is  lady Greville, wife of lord  Greville, who sends weekly articles to the  London Graphic.    The marquis of Lome,  son-in-law of the queen, adds  to  his income by his work as a designer and partner in a linn of   house decorators.    Lord  Londonderry  ami   lord   Dudley,  besides  many other peers, not only mine coal, but  retail it, having it peddled  in tho streets  of London,.in carts  bearing   tlieir  names  and coronets.    It is in   vehicles similarly  adorned      that     lord     Rosebery,     lord  Ra.yleigh   and   the    marquis   of    Abergavenny retail milk to metropolitan customers.    On several occasions have these  noble lords been found suing petty dealers in the London courts  for   having encroached upon   their milk   routes.    Lord  ^Portsmouth does not scorn to gain additional income as a greengrocer, and carts  bearing his name  aud title   may be met  selling vegetables from house to house in  the neighborhood'of his  beautiful place  iu Hampshire.    The 'number of .peers who  are interested in thebee r, ale  and liquor  trade is legion, some of them   even   owning   the   public   houses,   or   saloons,   in  which the liquors are retailed.
