 eh  ����*!��  ANOTHER PARTY OF EDMONTON  Trail Unfortunates.  Vancouvku,     September     13.���After  traveling   continuously   for  almost  two  years, members of a. party men Klondike-  bound arrived in Vancouver this morning  by the steamer   Cnpilano.     During  tliis  time they have been nearly all  over the  northern part of British  Columbia, and  for some time at least suffered very much  like many other men who traveled by the  .Edmonton trail.    The party lei'b Edmonton two years ago.    They had ironic from  Wisconsin, and the members of tlio party  wore Jim Rrean, .T. N. Braggor, and K. C.  Cabberg,  all   hearty looking men.   They  arrived  in   Vancouver   this   morning  a  tired looking lot.      Bagger, the leader of  the party, left for Seattle, and  tho principal feature of his appearance is that he  has    nob    shaved    for   two    years    and  liis    hair    and     beard     unite    behind.  C'alberg talked volubly of the troubles of  tlie trip.    There were few days last summer when he had not waded for long distances in water up around his waist.    In  the heat of the  day  his   head   would be  burning, while his legs would   bo  chilled  by  the  icy   waters  of tlie rivers which  tliey navigated.    Then, frequently   they  would be partially wrecked and upset in  water, and again   the  experience  would  be varied anil they would have   to  swim  ashore.    In winter tlieir sufferings   were  terrible.    During the first  summer   they  had   a  good   deal  of   trouble   with   the  Indians,     wlio      wanted       to      collect  money    for    allowing    them     to     pass  through the co'untry, but  if  ib  liad   not  been for the Indians in the winter time a  good many of  the   men   in   the country  Would have  starved   to  death.    Calberg  said that a great many deaths had surely  occurred of which no tale would ever  bo  told.    Members of his   party  saw  other  men who said they had   lost  their  companions   up  in   the  hills, and  when the  Indians went to search tliey could not be  found.. Tlie men had. probably wandered  oil' the brail and got lost.  THE  SOUTH AFRICAN  MUDDLE  <**_  ^s^a*-*:'  TUURSDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER  U, 18!I9.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  "WfiBfiLY-,  Not Particular as to an Hour or Two.  Pretoria, September 'Vi.���A communication has been received from the imperial government stating that, although  anxious for a-prompt reply, the imperial  authorities don't desire to tie the Transvaal down to forty-eight liours. The reply will possibly come before the volksraad tomorrow. The decision of the  executive will undoubtedly be influenced  by*tho action ot the Change Free State,  The government is still-willing to attend  the joint commission ouginally proposed.  A Decision Anxiously Awaited.  Priitoiua. Septomboi Vi.���President  Kruger and the executive council reassembled this evening to considei the  reply to be made to tho British secretary  of state for the colonies, _ili. Chamberlain. They aie sbill conferring by telegraph with bhe Orange Kieo State. The  decision in anxiously awaited by the  crowds of outsidoi s.  also owned a large amount of stock in  the Michigan Central, Lake Shore fc  Michigan .Southern, Chicago ��*_ Northwestern, and Big Four. While he owned  stock in half a hundred railway corporations, yet his largest holdings were in  these companies. It was in these corporations tliat lie took an active part, and  with which his name was most closely  allied.    THE LEGISLATURE WILL MEET  On the Fourth of January.  Special to the Tribune.  Victoria. September 13.���The Ga/.ette  this week will contain the proclamation  convening the legislature on Thursday,  January 4th, 1900. This does not look as  if the Semlin government was afraid to  meet tlie legislature. The session of 1899  commenced on January 5th.  Trouble Over a Troop Ship. ��  Nrcw York, September 13.���A despatch  to the World from Hong Kong says that  tho United States transport Tartar,  which is expected to sail today, has been  detained by the harbor authorities under  bhe British Merchants Shipping Act,  whereby her'capacity is limited to 7:50  passengers, though she has a licensed  capacity of 13'10. Consul Wilclina.ii, representing the United States government,  book the matter at once before the local |  government authorities, and maintained  tliat the Tartar was an American troopship, although Hying the British flag,  and not subject to the Mercantile Shipping Act. The authorities have been considering the matter all day, and  it is probable that 450 soldiers  on board the Tartar will' be; left behind  when she is permitted to sail for San  Francisco. Several of the discharged  soldiers on board the Tartar filed complaints of her unsanitary condition, which  started the proceedings to. detain her.  Washington, September 13.���It was  stated at the war department this afternoon that the Tartar matter had been  referred to ambassador Choate, which  makes an international question of it.  The opinion is that notwithstanding the  Taitai flies the British flag, the assumption of the authoiity over her is unau-  bhoii/.ed, as she is chartered by bhe  United States government.  THEIR ACTION DID NOT APPEAR  No Truth m the Rumor.  Loniion. September Vi.���Tlie rumoi  curient this afternoon th.it tlie Roths  childs had icceived woicl fiom Ru is that  Dreyfus had been paidoned, is absolutely  denied by them. Such action, they said,  Avould be absolutely impossible until tlio  council of revision passes on  bhe appeal.  Dreyfus Not Long to Live.  Paris Septemboi 12���Dr. Voa/.\, the  physician attending captain I hoy fits, says  that the condemned man it. hopelessly ill.  The physician say, that 1 hey his may  -Ii\e only-ii few���we_k=, and���tliat-he can  li\c in any case only a few months. He  says the condition of Dieyfus is such  that milk and soda water only foi m liis  nourishment. His stomach can hold  nothing more. Figaio says that particulars icgaiding I)_o\his* health liave  been communicated to the goArer irment.  Tho matter will bo con-iduicd .it the  cabinet meeting today. It is the only  point on which the govei innent will pi ob-  ably intervene in the canying out of the  sentence of the court martial.  Fife Will be .Supreme.  Nbw York, Septembei 13,- -The name  of designer Fife of the Shamrock 1 uis  been ultimately, connected in the public  mind with tlie fortunes of that craft, but  until today his official relation to the  boat has not been definite. Sir Thomas  Lipton cleeins it wise now that the. fact  should be known that Mr. Fife is here,  nob only in his interest as designer, bub  he will be supreme in commanding the  races. He will, indeed, sail tlie Shamrock. His will and rule will 'dominate  tlie craft from this time forward, and so  thoroughly that even the .Shamrock's  ovvuer will stibin.it to suggestions.  , His "Wealth Not Known.  New York, September 13.���While it is  generally known that Cornelius Vander-  bilt, who died yesterday, was an enormously rich man, yet little is known of  his .actual fortune, says the Tribune. His  fortune has been variously estimated at  all the way from $80,000,0*00 to $200,000,-  000. Ib was mostly in railroad stocks,  bonds and securities. He was nob interested in the new industrial companies  that have been formed, and in fact had  no holdings of any corporations aside  from his own railways.    He was  a large  ��� owner of New York  Central stock.    H,o .  Declined to Answer Pointed Questions.  Xkw York, September 13.���Perhaps  the most important and interesting witness at today's session of the Mazet legislative investigation committee was F. If.  Piatt, son of United States senator Piatt  aud junior member of the law firm of  Tracy, Boardman & Piatt. Piatt was  called as a witness for the purpose of  throwing additional light upon the organisation and the plan aud scope of the  llamapo Water Company. As a matter  ot fact he was unable to give very much  information in 1 cg.u d to the origin of  this watei company, which hoped to  secure a 200,000,000 gallon a day  contract from the        city        of  New Yoik. Questioned by Mr.  Hoflm.m, who represents the democratic minoi ity in the Maxot committee.  Mr Piatt declined to answer regarding  tlie amount of ��toek which he hold in the  CityTiust Company, and when piessed  for an explanation said, "It is none of  your-businessr'-"���Silas-B���Dutcher,~the~  president of the Rumo-po Water Company, was also on the stand, but he wras  unable to give details concerning that  organization because of the absence of  the secretary A number' of other witnesses weie cm lied to the stand, but nothing of geneial importance was elicited.  "Let Us Have Peace!"  Paris, .September 13.���Alluding to the  foreign comments on the verdict of the  Henries court martial, the Temps says:  "The inveterate enemies of France, who  aie exploiting the Dreyfus affair- as they  do nil incidents of our national life,  would have made as much capital out of  the accjuittal as out of condemnation.  Their hatred will not change, but they  will not always have so many listeners,  for simple people don't hate France* but  sincerely believe her dishonored. They  will soon return to a more just appreciation of things,:-and they will find that we  are not devoured by fire from heaven,  and that we don't devour any one Ourselves. Let us work in peace, arid tlie  sympathy of foreigner's will be' restored  with the rest."      '":.:y  The Richelieu Looks Like a Mine.  Henry Roy, superintendent of the;  Richelieu Mining Company, is in Nelson.  His company is operating on Crawford  creek, to the east of Pilot Bay. The  work is not only progressing satisfactorily, but the showings are that the company lias a mine. Eighteen men are employed, and superintendent Roy says he  will be pleased to give the members of  the Canadian Mining Institute his opinions of the eight-hour law as an economic measure. His opinions would not  agree, however, with those of such eminent scientests as H. B, Croasdaile and  J. Jtioderiek Riiberfcyon.   .  To Be That of Impartial  Scientists.  With profit and pleasure one listener,  at least, followed the deliberations of the  Canadian Mining Institute at their meeting held in Oddfellows' hall last night.  As the meeting was an open one to the  public, the Institute cannot object to receive public criticism. Up to that point  where the resolution condemning the  eight-hour law was introduced, no subject but that of scientific mining and  treatment of ores was broached, which  was in accordance with the generally  understood principles of the Institute.  The unfortunate consideration given to  the eight-hour law will doubtless sink  the dignity of the Institute to an uneiif  viable degree in the estimation of the  public.  The indelicacy of those from other provinces mixing their Institute in the political affairs of British Columbia is unpardonable in the extreme, and the ridiculous is fairly approached when those gen-,  tlemeu calmly discuss the advisability of  their bringing weight to bear on the Dominion government to disallow the eight-  hour law. Fancy a meeting of less than  fifty persons arrogating such poAvers to^  themselves. While all its technical members command respect, as being in the  field of scientific research, they have  hardly a modest conception of their influence with the representatives of five millions of people.  It may be said on behalf of the  members foreign to the  province that they  were the victims of the skillful use ofthe  long-bow; but some think they fell easily,  and even willingly, as its  prey.    If any-  -one were to cast doubts as to the veracity  of H. E. Croasdaile, resident manager  of;  the Hall Mines, Limited, a panic in stocks  might ensue in  London. . Let  us,  therefore, concede that the company's management has not selected such an irresponsible  person  to  guide  its   comparatively  large interests.    In introducing the resolution at the meeting, the gentleman  referred to seriously told his auditors  that  iuen were, or could be, worked  twelve to  fourteen hours in raihoad tunnels, while  he could not, by Iawr, work his men more  than eight  hours  on   their  barren  rock  tunnels.    If the Silver King tunnels  are  in barren lock, as  Mr. Croasdaile  says���  and   Mr.   Croasdaile    should    know���it  would be  an interesting  piece  of news  for the stockholders of the Hall  Mines,  Limited.    Mr.   Croasdaile   also said the  miners themselves weie strongly opposed  to the law.    The piesident  of the Institute considei cd the exception in the Jaw  a gi cat injustice.    As  a means  of overcoming the  difficulty, it  might be  suggested   that   the   Hull   Mines, Limited,  would apply for a railroad char ter, and  drop tlie word   "mines"  from  its  name,  when it would surely have the same privileges as railroads.       E. P. Brkmnur.  Nelson,, September Kith.  [The Canadian Mining Institute is a  tail to B. T. A. Bell's kite. Mr. Bell is  not a mining man or a scientist, but he  knows how to butter his bread on both  sides. He is the reputed owner and  publisher of a mining paper, named the  Review,  which is published at Ottawa.  The    president   of   the Institute_k_a  brothel-in-law of the man Bell, and is a  mining expert of more or leas weight. Ho  recently made a icport on the Silver  King mine and other properties of tlie  Hall Mines Limited. The Institute has  not been much of a factor heretofore in  mining in Canada, and it is not likely to  he much of a factor in British Columbia  as long as its few membeis allow themselves to be used, as catspaws for such  men as H. \i. Croasdaile and .1. Roddick  Robertson. ��� Kujtor Tiurunk.J  That Bad Man, Tom Burns.  Nurtliport. News.  Tom Burns, who escaped from the city  bastiie hero last week while awaiting  action by the British Columbia 'authorities for breaking jail at Nelson, was  dressed in a full suit of Michael Maloney's  clothes, which he borrowed from the hitter's homestead cabin while lie Avas aAvay.  The articles thus surreptitiously borrowed were a pair of gray pants, a Mackinaw jacket, new hat, razor and knife,  valued at about $20. The most .remarkable thing about it is that he did not-'  take a. pistol hanging over the bed or a  fine meerschaum pipe from a pocket of  Mike's Sunday coat that was hanging up  in the room.     '      '  The Generals Said to be Weakening.  Boston, Septeniber 18.���The Post today announced that it has received the  following private dispatch from Paris:  "Generals Rouguet and Mereier have offered on tlie part of bhe army to demand  from president Loubet the pardon of  captain Dreyfus, if the Jewish committee  will drop the matter, and on condition  that Dreyfus shall live away from the  large cities of France for three years."  A MEMBER OF THE LEGISLATURE  Says the Miners Are in  the  Right.  To the Editor op Tim TnutUNti:   I desire to make some slight reference to the  present  difficulty  in   the  mines  of  the  Slocan district.   This is made necessary by  the  many   false   statements  constantly  being    published    reflecting    upon    the  miners in this trouble.    Ib has been said,  and is believed by many people, bhab the  mine operators offered $3.25 to the miners  after the passage  ofthe eight-hour law.  I take the entire responsibility of asserting that this is altogether a mistake.   The  ���miners'   association has neyer been approached by the associated operatorsatall.  Notices were posted at the mines stating  that the wages would be $3 per day after  the 1st of June, actually a few days  before the enforcement- of the eight-hour  law.     The   mine   operators   refused   to  recognize the  authority of the miner's'  association at all,and then the miners very  properly   considered   themselves   locked  put.    There Avas only one  operator  who  approached the miner's at all fairly. Tliis  Was from the Slocan Star, an operator not a  member of the Mine Owners' Association,  who offered $'125 to his  men.    The  men  refused the offer, but allowed  members  of the union to  go  to  the  mine  at the  manager's  request   to   make   it secure,  pending..a. settlement   of   the   general  question.    I desire to say, also, that when  the offer was made by the  manager of  the Slocan Star, the  men  refusing, they  requested  him to try for one  month  at  the old rates, implying at least that they  would   be   willing   at  the  end  of that  period to discuss the results, and  at  the  same time give the  miners  a  chance  to  see what they  could  do  in  the  shorter  day.  I consider that the  policy  pursued by  the operators of these  closed mines  has  been arbitrary, to  say the least.    When  we consider  that the   government   was  simply enforcing a law in  keeping  Avith  the hours of labor in mines  in  England  aiid in  Australia, and  even  in  the coal  mines of this province, they ought to have  continued   their   business   for    a  given  peiiod, giving the men a chance to piove  what could be done under the  new conditions,  and that   if   the   results   weie  proven to be  seriously against  them, to  meet the  miner's' union, lay their  business before them, and I am certain tliat  the  Avhole   question  Avould   have   been  settled     Avithout    any    trouble.       Instead  of  that,  hoAVoA'cr,  they  foolishly  thought that  by  continuing their business  undei   the  new  Uiav that any consideration   of   tlie    matter    afterwards  would   be   legarded   as  a ieduction  of  Avages, apart fiom the iact of having any  iclation  to  the  reduction  of  hours per  day.    Instead  of going ahead Avith their  business as did the mine owners of Rossland, Slocan mine owners have done nothing to give the men a fair oppoi trinity (as I  believe from experience Avould be proven)  to prove that as good lesults could be got  from eight hours as ten.    They aie Avasb-  ing then eneigies in drafting petitions to  the goA'ernment in favor of lepealing the  hiAv.    They  have made  it  impossible to  get any public sympathy, and  certainly  impossible to make out any good case for  the consideration of the question in the  legislature.    The sooner the better they  _i��sl"P_��e_of_the_behef _that_it_is probable  the law may be lepe^^Ied. The law is  there to stay. They must .settle the mat-  tci outside of that, but they must first  recognise the miner's' association as a responsible and constitutional body, as worthy of legaid as their own, When they  do this fairly, their side of the ease will  receive sonic consideration by the miners  When A\e consider the position  of the miners of this pai t of the province, they are very poorly paid, indeed.  Those of them who have wives and families cannot live at home, with few exceptions, and nie compelled to pay one  dollar a day foi board, leaving them in  the best paid mines? $'3.50 a day.  They lire not by any menus over-  well paid, and Ave are in a position to  make coiitrasts4f necessary that would  make -their proposed reductions look very  mean indeed.  These mine operator's must understand  that the miner's of this province are o-r-  ganreed for political purposes, to -got protection to labor; and if we have a  Avealthy province (which we undoubted\y  have), Ave intend that the men avIio make  it by their labor shall receive a fair-share  of it, and to this and avc are able by our  votes to get legislators who are willing  to protect us in this 'matter. Tlieir wise  policy would be to deal with us as citizens in the business Avith them,-and nob  as mules, made useful for hauling out  the minerals for a piece of grub and a  feAV clothes. We are men, capable, of  knowing our fair claims, and avc have the  power to insist upon them. We arc not  anarchists ; Ave are law abiding, and Ave  insist on being 'recognized and met on  these matters, and not be forced, to do  just what a few men (few of Avhoiu arts  citiz,ens of our country) think fit to dictate. ........--,  The miners .of the "Slocan arc. . sensible  men, just as  much  so  as in other parts  of the country where all  business is done  amicably   between   employers  and   employees. Rali'ii Smith.  Nelson, .September' 12th, 181)9.  FREE DISCUSSION NOT WANTED  By the Mine Owners' Push.  Why did .1. Roderick Robertson, head  push of the Nelson District Mine Owners'  Association, and B. T. A. Bell, secretary  of the Canadian Mining Institute, want  the remarks made by Messrs. Dick and  Mann in opposition to scientist Croas-  daile's resolution on the eight-hour law  suppressed? If the question is one that  concerns the Avelfare of the mining industry, it should be discussed openly and  fairly. The truth is, that men like Robertson and Bell and Croasdaile are not  fair. They sire more self-seeking jobbers, and they jobbed the Canadian Mining Institute into passing a foolish resolution.  A Bail way Man Ban quetted.  Medicine Hal.

LARGEST   STEAMSHIP  AFLOAT  Makes a Successful Voyage.  New York, September 13.���The great  steamship Oceanic of the White Star line  Avas   sighted  east   of   Fire   island   this  morning at three o'clock. She left Queens-  town at   4:45   p.m.  last Thursday,  and  estimating that she Avill reach the lightship at 10 o'clock, the time of her passage  Avill be about six days and two hours.   It  is   probable  that   owing   to   her great  draught she Avill not attempt to cross the  bar till high tide,  which is at half-past"  one this afternoon at .Sandy Hook, so her  appearance in the upper bay can  hardly  be expected   before three  o'clock.    The  time made by her may be considered \rery  good, as severe gales have been reported  on the Atlantic during the passage, and  compares   favor-ably   witn   the  swiftest  ocean greyhounds in such Aveather.     As  compared Avith ocean  records,  however,  there aro half a dozen steamers ahead of  her.    The best is that of the Lucania,   5  days 7 hours and  23  minutes,  and the  Teutonic, 5 days Hi hours and 31 minutes,  the next following being theUmbria, the  Majestic, and the Ebruia.    The Oceanic is  the largest vessel ever built.    Her dimensions are 704 feet long, 72 feet beam, and  OS feet'deep, Avith draught, light, 22 feet,  loaded, 32|  feet.      She  registers  17,000   A  tons. Herengines are designed to develop  45,000 horse power.'  Her coal capacity is  about  0000  tons.    She   consumes  about  500  tons'" daily.'.-. She' has  two  funnels,1"/..':  each   20   feet  in  diameter and  80 feet    .  above tlie fire grates.    Her passenger ac^  commodation is 025 cabin and 1000 steerage.    She carries a crew .of 450.    When  she sailed from QueenstoAvri on her present  trip  she  had  on board 2014 souls.'-;"  So  much  larger  is  she  than the  other  White Star  steamers  that the line has  built a new dock on the  North River to  'accommodate   her.      The Oceanic's  displacement is  30,000  tons, and  compared  av. th the Great Eastern, tlie greatest'.ship.'-'."..:'-,''  ever   bililt   before   her,' she? is  24 feet  longer,   with   horse  power  over   35,000  greater.  No day's run   exceeded   500  miles, but"  the   steamer  is  said  to  have  made  no  attempt  at a  record  or even   to  make  great speed.    The  voyage  Avas  pleasarit, :-:  and uneventful.    The  engines  Avere rrrriy  through  without- a  hitch, neither  stop- :  ping nor  slowing  on   the  Avay, and lier V  builder, the Right Hon.

Coruer of Bakor mid Stanley SLroote, Nelson
does not seem to worry many pcojile outside the .Slocan district except those who
are interested in mines in that district.
In all other sections of the province, the
law has been accepted in good faith, and
the mining industry has not been perceptibly affected through its enforcement.
In the Slocan all the big mines except
one were; closed down without even an
effort being made to adjust the question
of wages. The miners were simply notified by printed notices, posted up at the
works, that the rate of wages from and
after June 1st would be $:i a day. In
other words, the miners were told by
jirinted notices, signed not by individual
mine owners, but by the members of the
Mine Owners1 Protective Association collectively, that if theydid not want to work
for $8 a day, that they must pick up
their -traps and get out. Like self-respecting men they took the hint. They
did not stop to argue the question of
their dismissal; the}' quietly left and
sought employment elsewhere. This was
not exactly what tho mine owners
expected. Some of them expected
that the miners would commit infractions of the law, and by so doing
incur the displeasure of the public, without whose sympathy laboring men have
never yet won a fight. The miners, had
they.been .approached as men having a.
voice in the consideration of affairs that
concern them, would; without doubt, have
discussed the questions at issue fairly and
acted with reason. Tin-* Tinhunis is of
opinion that the miners are just as reasonable now as they were in May last, and
that if the mine owners wish to discuss
the matters at issue, the representatives
of the miners will meet them half way.
It takes two to make a bargain,' and it
usually takes two to settle a dispute.

Mr. Cotton says the legislature will meet

Tlie mini of tho present hour ami of the  present crisis���the man to whom all eyos  are turned today-��� is sir Alfred Milner,  governor of.the Cape and high commissioner for .South Africa.  And who, is. ho? What, has he done?  What is his personality? How does it  come that at this supreme moment he  carries on his shoulders the Tate of the  British Empire?  Sir Alfred Milner is a man whom all  parties and'all sections unanimously pronounce to be the right man in the right  place, because to all who know him he  has, shown himself at once strong,.capable, and tactful. His past career has  been one of uninterrupted success.  He began with academic honors. Educated as a boy at a,German school, where  he imbibed the German thoroughness and  thirst for solid knowledge, he went on to  ���King's college and Oxford. .He swept  the board of prizes, and Avon the reputation of .being tlie ablest of living Oxonians. Yet this avjis not all he owned to  his alma mater. Oxford at hei best inspires a high devotion 'and a sense of duty  in her sons, Avhich have 'marked sir Alfred A^ilncr throughout his career. She  teaches men not only to live, but also, in  the subtle words of the Greek, to live,well.  When Milner weut up Lo Oxford the  Fap of Imperialism was barely beginning"  to rise in the tree. It was then' astrahge,  dreaded doctrine���almost .a heresy. It-  was still the fashion to Avish to be rid of  our Empire, that Avu-miglit settle down  to a placid life of enjoyment. That Avas  the time of the tyranny of bhe Manchos-  Lerschool, against Avliieh sir Alfred Mil:  nor.'s whole nature rose in revolt���though  perhaps revolt is too strong a- Avord to  use for this restrained, equable, serene  nature. But It would bo true to say that,  he disliked the weakness and cowardice  of'such a policy.  Ho had no wish to become a professor,  and so, on leaA'ing Oxford, he entered the  ranks of journalists in London as assistant editor of the Kadical L'all Mall  Ga/.ette, under the tuition lirst of Mr.  Morley and then of Mr. Stead.  Under Mr. Stead sir Alfred Milner has  always said that ho learnt very much.  "It was an invaluable education," were  his words. And from the close association and known ability of these two men,  It Avill be interesting to recall Mr. Stead's  opinion of sir Alfred.  "He succeeded in combining an ox-  _treniely_level_head_Avith_an_ _uupci'Liirba_  bility of temper, which enabled him to  ftvoid the blunders, Avhicli mar most men's  careers. He never generated sufficient  steam to blow up' the boilo'r;. He never  went off at half-cock. . He- never, spoiled  things by over-vehemence. There was  in Ids writing in those fkiys a lack ofthe  fervor and vigor that Ire displayed in his  'England in Egypt,' He was apt to be  soinewhafc Woolly When you wanted him  to be its sharp as the point of an assegai."  Iii liis inte"rconrse with Mr. Stead lie  must have come to understand that  mystin'ioits entity known as the "Non-  coui-ortnist conscience," of which Mr.  Stead is popularly supposed to be the  .keeper. Perhaps he learnt tliat tlie "conscience" respects the strength, of inWai'd  conviction, the sense of duty.  Leaving the Pail Mail he stood as a  Cfladstoniau candidate in tlie election of  1885, before home rule. In his address  to his constituents at Harrow he suggested that England should clear out of  Europe and attend only to Iter Empire.  He avjis Mr. Goschen's private secretary  from 1887 to 1889, when in the latter year  he went to Egypt as under secretary "for  finance.  It may safely be said that his Egyptian experience was an education in the  management of affairs. His daily experience of the difficulties to be encountered  from the foreign powers, France, Russia  and Germany-, and from the Egyptians  themselves, taught him statesmanship,  while lie Avas under one of the greatest  pro-consuls England has produced in this  century���lord Cromer. He saw when it  was Avise to be conciliatory and when to  be firm. His vieAVs of policy were profoundly changed. Pie realized that England cannot neglect Europe, but that by  our skill upon the European chess-board  theenipire is to.be held or.lost... "  He drew upon his store of knowledge  to write his famous book on "England in  Egypt." Till that book appeared, it has  been said by Mr.-Stead, avc woro as a nation ashamed of Egypt. Milner showed  what England had done, and thrilled us  with a new and justifiable sense of pride.  In every page the man's tolerant nature  reveals itself. He makes largo allowances for the conduct of the Khedi\re.  He does not overlook the claims,,of  .Franco. He is tactful, restrained and  sympathetic.  Returning to England, he was appointed 'chairman of the board of inland  revenue, and served two chancellors of  the Exchequer���sir W. Harcourt and sir  M. Hicks-Beach. Thus it fortunately  happened that he was able to render  great aid to both our parties by assisting  in the preparation of their budgets. Finally, in 1897, ho Avas appointed governor  of the Capo, upon lord Rosemead's breakdown.  This .appointment came at a very critical time. Then, as now, South Africa  was- seething Avith unrest and with resentment produced by the Jameson raid.  It aviis felt by all that a man of exceptional force and character was required.  He must be a statesman of exquisite tact;  he must be approved by both parties;  and, above all, he must be strong, for he  would have to deal Avith a strongman,  Mr. Kruger. Yet, sir Alfred Milner aviis  hailed by all as fulfilling the desiderata.  The Daily Chronicle, Daily News and  Westminster Ga/.ette vied Avith The  Times, Standard and Morning Post in  praise of him. He Avasthc choice, it may  truly be said, of both parties, and he  Avent forth to his work with the proud  consciousness that tho nation stood behind him, confiding in his judgment.  What strikes all those avIio come into  persona! contact Avith sir Alfred Milner is  his strength and quietness. He is not  one of those who talk big and a few days  later are found backing doAvn. The keynote of his character,is its determination  to rest true to .himself: Ho is not'a man  who wouldx-ling,to office if he found himself unsupported. But, - Avhile he is  strong, he1 is moderate, and" Avill -never  embark upon :i- rash or foolish course.  Risks he may have to take, as any statesman may, but he Avill oniy take them  whore  not  to   risk  Avould   be  infinitely  oo-q-er.  Beer or HaLlf=  -and=HaIf....

He is one who is wholly  averse ,to the use of force AA'here it is  possible to do Avithout it.   ^~vr  At the great banquet given to hour r  him on his departure to South Africa,  Mr. Asquith truly said that "this remarkable gathering is as thoroughly representative of every shade of political opinion  as could possibly be gathered together  within the compass of four Avails in this  country." Mr. Courntney. Mr. Asquith  and lord Battersea sat cheek by jowl  Avith Mr. Balfour, Mr. Chamberlain, Mr.  Goschen and Mr. Cur/.on.  In his policy at the Capo, sir Alfred  Milner has behaved as a man who represents the best traditions of Liberalism.  He has been kindly and conciliatory to  the Cape Dutch, Avhile losing no opportunity of reminding them of Avhat they  owe to England. He has not entangled  himself in any,party struggles. He has  Avatched and studied Mr. Kruger, to discover what his aims arc. There is not  today in the empire a man more competent to form a sound judgment on the  position in South Africa.  The conference with-Mr. Kruger showed him at his best. There Avas no bluster, no shilly-shally, no indecision on his  ���jKirt, but the resolute firmness of a man  who knows hoAvfar he is prepared to go,  and -who will go not one step beyond.  That'lie broke up the conference���he, the  conciliatory, gentle Milner���is the surest  proof that compromise and negotiations  are helpless.  Whatever sir Alfred Milner bid the nation do it must do. We have made shipwreck before through not trusting the  man on the spot. The cowardice wliich  shirks a decision is not the frame of mind  FULL LINE OF  for a ruling race. Nor is is it for one  moment true that the situation improves  with time.    Tt grows steadily worsx  As a nation Ave have prayed for a leader and worked for a leader. Our race is  never so lion-hearted as when it has a  great man whom it can trust directing  the advance. In sir Alfred Milner Ave  haA'e one avIio is bravo, firm, true and devoted; we cannot abandon him.  A Marriage at High Altitude.

Hon. F. C. Cotton arrived in Nolson today. J-Ie was interviewed by the city  authorities upon two mutters. The most  important was that with respect to the  question of the title to the recreation  grounds. It was found with respect to  this question that the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company desired to crawfish  from its agreement; with the provincial  government, and although there was a  (lofinito agreement with superintendent  Mnrpole with respect to tho exchange of  certain properties for the present recreation grounds, the company now seeks to  refer the matter to president Shaugh-  nessy, who is expected to visit this province within the next two months. The  minister of finance has promised to look  after the city's interests in this matter  and to nccr.nipa.ny Mr. .Shaughnessy upon  his trip through the country.  J. 11. McCollum, the purchaser of the  Nelson city debentures to the amount of  $1)0,000, paid $02,-100 into the Bank of  Montreal today. The matter of the  accrued interest upon the debentures will  be adopted upon the basis of what the  city authorities consider reasonable time.  A meeting of the citizens of Nelson  will be held this evening to consider tho  report of the finance committee with respect to the mineral exhibit to the  Spokane fruit fair.0  A. Fcrland & Co. announce that they  have done a bettor business for the past  five days than at any corresponding  period since they have been in business.  The reason is not far to seek. Thoy advertise in a newspaper that circulates  among people who have money to pay  for what they purchase.  An effort is being, made by the'city  authorities to obtain title to tlie land on  the eastern limits of the city known as  "The Park." Part of it has been deeded  to the Kootenay Lake General Hospital  Societ3'.  Angus Shaw, is going to be a mining  man. He has a group of claims on Forty-  nine creek, known as the Pingree group,  and is making preparations to develop  them.  OUR  GREAT  BARGAIN  S-A.LE  "WILL  BE  CONTINUED  THIS  WEEK  Born yesterday, to tho wife of A. Fcrland, a son.  The tenders for the foundation of the  London <fc British Columbia Goldfields  ollico were op'oned yesterday. Ellis <fc  Martin were the lowest tenderers, and  pending changes in.the plans for tho  building the contract for the basement  will be awarded to thorn. The building  is to be !)0x52 feet and tenders will be  called for the superstructure at once.  Hugh Sutherland of Toronto, who is  interested in mines and the Miner, arrived in Nelson yesterday.  P. Burns, who gets a rake-oll' on every  pound of beef sold in British Columbia,  is at the Phair.  \V. !.<\ Robertson, provincial mineralogist, loft Nelson last night for Montreal,  via Crow's Nest Pass road, owing to the  dangerous illness of his father.  George AV. Hughes, manager of t.he  Idaho and other mines in tho .Slocan, was  in Nelson yesterday.  Mica Coming to the Front.  Among the minor mineral products  which have been attracting attention recently, mica seems to hold a prominent  place. This is largely due to the increased demand, duo to its use as an insulating material for electric work. "We  are in receipt of inquiries from all parts  of the country as to tho uses and value  of mica; and these show that prospectors aro on the lookout for the mineral  and have large ideas of the value. There  certainly is a demand for mica which is  in excess of the homo production, as is  shown by the considerable quantities imported, and a market could be found for  an increased output. It is a mineral  which can bo found in many places, but  unfortunately the deposits of commercial  value are very few. The quality regulates the price entirely, and "mica which  comes up to the requirements of freedom  from flaws, evenness of structure, and,  abovo all, size of sheets or blocks, is comparatively rare. Prospectors should bear  this in mind and not be carried away by  indications, which are apt to be very deceptive. It is also to be remembered that  in mica mining there is always a VL'.vy  large proportion of dead, work and waste  material, so that only high-grade deposits  can be made to pay.  Skilled Labor Scarce.  The men who arc managing manufacturing enterprises in Nelson say that,  it is difficult to get skilled labor as re-  quirqd. First-class mechanics are looking  for steady employment, not, for jobs that  are intermittent.  BUSINESS   MENTION.
