Array CHAMBERLAIN PLAYS FOR TIME  To Land British Troops.  London, September 22.���The corre-  *��� spondence between sir Alfred Milner and  president Steyn strengthens the.current  belief here that tomorrow's cabinet council will decide to send out from 10,000 to  20,000 addition.al troops to South Africa  and leave all questions of diplomacy open  until tlieir arrival. Meanwhile the Orange  Free State leaders and the Afrikanders  will bestir themselves to keep peace between England and tlio Transvaal and  will have the best wishes of the English  Conservatives like sir Edward Clarke,  who are hoping war may be averted.  Leading financiers in the city are convinced that war is inevitable, since neither president Kruger nor Mr. Chamberlain can retreat with honor, find tliere is  no other way out of it. That is the commonest expression heard in Lombard  street, that each side has gone* too far to  turn back, and hence there is nothing to  do but fight it out. An experienced  banker remarked that the government  here is waiting in order to put all the reinforcements ashore, and the Boers are  holding back for .rain, which will give  water and grass on the veldt for tlieir  cavalry, and that in tho course of six  weeks there will be a quick three weeks'  campaign.  Mr' .Chamberlain will provide a draft  of an alternative policy when the cabinet  meets and his friends assert that it will  turn on the pivot of the paramount authority of the British government iii  South Africa. Rumors that the Transvaal government will be asked to disarm  and abandon its lines of fortifications in  Pretoria and. Johannesburg are premature, but not unfounded. Mr. Chamberlain keeps his own counsel and shows no  sign by which the next movement in the  game can be anticipated.  London, September 22.���The cabinet  council was held today beginning at  12-yO p.m. Large crowds assembled  about Downing street early in tlie day.  The cabinet ministers were loudly cheered,  Chamberlain receiving the lion's share of  applause. Previous to the meeting ofthe  'cabinet baron Rothschilds visited first  lord of the treasury Balfour. The circumstance is unusual and is said to be in  connection with money'difficulties the  government is encountering regarding  the prospect of tlie military campaign.  When the cabinet went iiito  session no new developments in the  Transvaal situation had transpired.

DENIES THAT DEWEY IS A HERO  iBC*':  Crt'-wiVSstm^  Tupper Version of the Deal.  Special to the Trilmnc.  Victoria,  .September  22.���In  connection with  the  allegation sent out from  Ottawa that sir Charles Tapper's attack  on major Walsh was because of the  hitter's refusal to recognize a  whisky  permit held by the Klondike  Trading Company, of which Tupper senior was a  director, an   explicit, denial-is  made  that  the   company   had    tiny    such    permit.  It is explained that the suggestion to apply was made the directors and discussed  at a meeting, when it was stated  by  sir  Charles Tupper that as he was a member  of parliament  he did not wish to be involved in any way in such an application  wliich  therefore  was" not made on the  company's  behalf.     It  seems,  however,  that.the Hon. Edgar Dewdney, the company's manager, took up  the  suggestion  as a personal venture, and the suit now  pending against major Walsh is  strictly**  his personal suit.  An Old Tub Sinks.  Victoria, .September 22.���The stc-amer  Barbara Boseowit/,, engaging in coasting  trade between Victoria aud northern  points, lies in shallow water on the  bottom of the Skeena river at Aberdeen.  She was going alongside the wharf there  for a salmon cargo on the 15th instant  when he keel caught on submerged crib-  work which had formed part of an old ice  breaker and had carelessly been allowed  to remain in the stream. She could not  be freed and as the tide went down became strained and took in water, flooding  five thousand out of six thousand cases of  salmon,  the..property  of Bell-Irving  &  ���'^mimiMm^  j&vilf?ftf^in^  '������ideibidin^t^  ���y ������i'fcySy as 'Seai'Celyyliel^ $aMfM' d;dlo|--'  .^iiiiiaticih #6uld. .\b.���e .Miyiioiincetl: -ihiij'iedS  ���*. ���jsv.eljj''     ���.���������' ...y.''������: , ���; ��� ������  ���'./' ^Piiyiji'ikH'i*:^ ^xeeu-  -. :in:ve, eOuucl I sa&Wn itil; "fiyo '^^loek*;. y.gsfcpt1'--.-  '.���'���'do$.. evening/..-.-. ������^.-������jE'el^iiitii'ij' :eoii*taini_ig  ' '.prjSs'ffl'eTy^ British^  ;Sigiiy#%i.)ii^ifeii^Ni]^,--'^^'^"-.j��:f rhsa WaS  . -.iuHd|y;>e1i'(feived^ .Aliir^^^rderyjto^'hoi'sjssy  lias%een given iii M\d:'��range -iFree'Sita'te'.

Omineca Will Produce Gold.  Victoria, 'September 22.���Among the  passengers who arrived by the steamer  Princess Louise today, were a number of  ���miners from the Omineca district, wliich  they say will add much to the gold of the  world. The manager of the St. Anthony  Mining & Exploration Company of Santa  Barbara, California, brought with him  $5000 in gold.as a sample of what the  Omineca country is producing, and with  him were G. W. Otterson, ofthe Deleware  Company, Herbert Hall and H. C. Ack-  royd. The St. Anthony Company owns  and is preparing to operate properties on  Evans, Gennausen and Manson creeks.  They are putting in a ditch several miles  long at a cost of. $50,000, and hope to  take that amount out of the ground this  season.

Toronto, September 22. ��� Goldwin  Smith, Avriting in a local paper, says:  "Nothing could show the extent to which  the head of Columbia has been turned by  tho war more than her adoration of the  hero Dewey, What did the hero Dewey  and his comrades do? They sat in almost  perfect safety* and destroyed at long  range a line of helpless tubs with some  hundred of the poor Spaniards who  nlanned them and who alone had no  opportunity of showing heroism on tho  occasion. .So perfectly secure did the  Americans feel that they adjourned to  breakftist in the middle of tlieir sport.  There was among them a single casualty  and had they all gone tiger hunting one  casuality at least probably would have  occurred.  Fortius, however, Dewey is declared  to be the equal of the great seaman who  conquered in the terrible days of Abou-  kir, Copenhagen and Trafalgar. If he  were so inclined he might probably be  elected president of the United States.  Canada cannot possibly take part in the  celebi-atiou of Dewey's triumphs Avithout  an evidence of discourtesy towards Spain,  a friendly nation, which has doiie Canada  no wrong. Spain, let it be remembered,  though deprived of her possessions in  this hemisphere, is still a Mediterranean  power, decayed at present, but capable.of  restoration: The British government  will hardly thank the Canadian government for making her an implacable  enemy."  Fatal Shooting Accident at Ainsworth.  F. J. A. Bennett; who for the past summer has been doing mission work for the  Presbyterian church at Ainswortli and  Pilot Bay, met with a fatal accident on  Thursday. While out shooting with'a  companion above Ainswortli Mr. Bennett's gun was accidentally discharged,  .and the contents of the gun tore one of  his arms from the elbow to the shoulder.  The accident occurred six miles from  Ainswortli, and at the time Mr. Behiiett  was separated from his companion^ ^The  GAPE COLONY AGAINST BRITAIN  Latest Rumor From the Transvaal.  London, September 22. ���Tho Johannesburg correspondent of the Morning Post  says it is asserted here that an understanding exists in Pretoria, that the  Cape Colony government will at the hist  moment declare in favor of the Transvaal. It is reported that fresh arrests of  journalists and Uitl.-i.nder leaders are imminent in .Johannesburg.  Prbtoria, September 22.���A green  book has been issued containing the report of sttite attorney Smuts to the government on the pour parlers between  himself and the British diplomatic  ���agent, Conyngham Greene, leading  .to the conditional five years  franchise proposal. Mr. Saints asserts  that the proposal was the result of a private discussion and an arrangement that  both governments should informally decide about the offer and its acceptance  before the offer should be formally submitted. He also contends that the exact  draft of the offer.was Wired to the British high commissioner, sir Alfred Milner,  aud that the Imperial government sent a  sdespatch to Mr. Greene which he 'interpreted as an acceptance of the offer. Mr.  Smuts said that had the Transvaal known  that any difficulty was to be made about  suzerainty his government would never  have made the proposals, but would probably have immediately have accepted  ���the invitation to a joint commission of  inquiry regarding; the proposal,  lie also denies that he promised Mr. Greene that the new- members  of the raad would be allowed to speak  English. All he said on this subject, was  that the matter would easily settle itself,  and states that in the telegram to sir  Alfred Milner no mention was made of  this subject. The government denies that  state-attorney Smuts has informed Mr.  Green that further mobilization will be  regarded as  an   unfriendly act.    F. W  ;Reitz, the state secretary, says that when  martial law is proclaimed it ���will apply to  the whole country.

Montrhat., September 22.���Hon. J. I.  Tarte* minister of public works, returned  from Europe today, and in an interview  discussed the elevator question. He declared that he was in favor of the government building grain elevators at Port  Colborne, on the Welland canal, and at  Montreal, so that the government could  keep control of the rates and save the St.  Lawrence route from falling into the  same position as the port of Buffalo,  where the elevators were in the hands of  a syndicate which has become a serious  menace to trade.

A Token of Friendship and Esteem.  While there is business rivalry between  Rossland and Nelson, there is also  much  good  fellowship  between  the people of  the two towns, which is shown on'opportune  ocasions.     One of Nelson's  oldest  residents,  A. H.  Buchanan, .manager of  the Bank of Montreal, is  well  known at  Rossland, for he opened the b.-ink's branch  at   that   place in April,  1S90, and  the  friends he made there seem to  have, the  faculty of rembering  events.   They remember that Mr.  Buchanan  became   a  benedict recently, and to show that they  had notforgOtten him they quietly decided  to surprise him  with "a testimonial of  their friendship and  esteem, and delegated Hector  McRae, John  McKane and  Archie Mackenzie to do the honors, which  they did last  night at the Phair  hotel.  The  testimoniiil  is  a handsome casket,  containing a solid silver service of knives  and forks and  ladles and  spoons.    The  casket   bears   a   gold    plate   inscribed:  "Presented  to Mr.  and  Mrs. A.  H. Buchanan of Nelson  by Rossland Friends,  1809."   The presentation  was   made  in  the dining room of the Phair, after which  those  present partook of refreshments.  Mr. McRae made the presentation in his  usual happy style, and Mr. Buchanan returned thanks  for Mrs.  Buchanan and  himself in a neat speech.  Toast were proposed and replies made by  George Johnstone, F. Peters, Grange V. Holt, Halifax  Hall, captain Duncan, Frank Fletcher, A.  E. Hodgins, John Houston, and Mr. Need-  ham of Nelson, and  by Messrs.  McRae,  McKane, and McKenzie of Rossland:    All  agreed that Mr. Buchanan personally was  entitled to all  the  good  things  of this  world, and-.those who had  known him  during his  residence in  Kootenay ga\^g  *���.

Richard  Popkiss, the dneetor of The  Ymir   Gold   Mines   who    made    a   trip  through Kootenay a short time ago, has,  issued a report to the .shareholders con-;  corning the ore bodies of the Ymir mines*  the  pragramme  for  their development;  and the profits which may be made from  them,    fie says: " The mine workings already carried out  have  proved  the reef  to a depth  of something over 400  feet,  opening up two ore chutes in  close proximity   to   each   other,  which  in  places  attain a width of .30  feet or over.    This  pay  ore  is  of three  classes,  one  being  capable of treatment in the mill at the  mine, the others consisting of galena ore  and carbonate of lead���both rich in gold,  and which are sacked   in   tho  mine and  shipped direct to the Hall Mines smelter  lit  Nelson.    As   this   rich  shipping   ore  occurs throughout the reef in streaks and  patches, it is most difficult to  arrive at;  any definite conclusion as to the average ~  valiie of tho vein  until  it  has been fui--  ther  worked  into.    However,  from  thet  work already carried   out,  Mr.   Fowler.^  '���puts the value of the milling ore at frOni%  ��2 to ��2 10s. per ton, and  the  shipping;0  ore at from ��12  to ��15  per ton; - Theil  manner in which the mine has  been de-y^  veloped reflects the greatest credit upon ��  the  local  administration,  and  is  consequently capable of the most economical :  working. ** ,-?  "Mr. Fowler considers that lie will  be y;  able to bring down  the  cost of mining  and milling to $4 (about-IBs. Sd.) per ton, v  thus giving a profit upon the milling prey:  of from 24s. to 34s. per ton, less the cost_y  of freight and smelting 'treatment- of the  concentrates   produced.       The   cost   of C  freight,   smelting,   duty   and   all  other^y  charges upon tlie rich ore which; is saekedKSsfl  at  the  mine  and  shipped  direct to thecal I  smelter, can be taken to produce  half itsffy  value  in  profit, i. e., from  ��0 toy'��7"10s.yy;��  per ton.

The above is from the Kaslo Kopte-  naian. TJic party or candidate pledged  to repeal the eight-hour law would not  stand a ghost "of a show in any constituency in the province. A largo majority  bf- the people believe in the principle;  they believe tliat eight Jiours a day in  this age of machinery is long enough to  work. They know that the eight-liour  law does not make it obligatory oii iriine  owners to pay $3 or $3.50 or any other  .sum for a day's wage,.and they believe  that tlie question of wages will adjust  itself. The eight-hour law stands, aud  tlie mine managers, of the Slocan should  not be buoyed up by any such foolish  hope that it will be repealed.  Wkre a general election held within a  week, the opponents of the present government could not carry one of the six.  Kootenay constituencies, on the eight-  hour or any other issue. If the fight  ~weiTe~nurde"oir"stiraight" party-! iiics~how  inany constituencies could the Liberals  carry if they stood pledged to the repeal  of the eight-hour law? The leaders of  the Conservatives are in such bad odor  in Kootenay, that the rank-and-file "would  not follow any,one of thein in a jDan-ty  fight at a provincial election.' In the  Nelson ruling,, their -only leader who  might win would'be David Mark Carley,  and ho would have to get down oil" the  fence, on which'ho is now perched, so  sudden that ,thc jolt would disable him  for life.  Titi'j organ of the Nelson District Mine  Owners' Association, which is paid for its  work at the rate of fifty dollars a month  (cheap labor prices), and which is now trying to work a fake ou both the mineowner.s'  association and the real estate dealers, is  sorely distressed because it is not allowed  to work its fake schemes without opposition.

The eliai-acterisfcics of .second-hand play  wliich were discussed in last week's  article were those which are othodox anrl  respectable, and wliich have received the  indorsement of the apostles of the true  faith. '.But there are others. Tliere arc  characteristics about the second-hand  play of some persons which are so far removed from respectability that they suggest the bushwhacker and the robber.  It is the unconventional player that  gathers in most of the tricks which should  have been won by the other side.  The respectable elements of secondhand play are easily recognized. Upon a  small card led the second hand protects  himself by playing one of his high cards  whenever lie holds any combination from  which he would have led a high card.  Any card played in second hand absolutely denies the card next below it in value,  except in signalling for trumps. Any  honor played second hand shows another  honor, or no more of the suit. An honor  upon an honor shows a short suit or a  fourchette, the exception being the play  of an ace on a jack. With the second  and third best of a suit, the second hand  protects*himself by forcing the command.  With such combinations as queen, ,iack  and one small, or jack, ten aud one small,  one of tho high cards is played if a small  caid is led.  Hamilton, in his "Modern Scientific  Whist," gives us an appalling list of the  combinations of cards wliich the second  hand may hold with which it would bo  judicioub to cover coitain iu tenor and  fourth best leads. Tliere are sixty  tpages of these diiections, with intricate  tables to show the proper card to play  second hand fioin the many and vaiious  combmatioiib which fall to the lot of the  average player, and theie are whole  chapters full of illustrations of special  play.s on an eight led and special plays on  a seven led, to say nothing of seven  tables of hands which mu��t be played in  certain Avays. All this, wisdom is based  on the assumption tliat the adveisaries  aie highly respectable and. truthful lead-  civs, who never heaid of the eominon-  sent-e game, and Avould not lead a short  suit for a farm.  As tho good book says, we haA'e  changed all that. The Philistines have  made short work of all this learning and  havo rendeied most of it useless by refusing to make the opening leads of such a  nature that they shall be a safe guide to  the second hand as to what he should  play in order to protect himself. It was  the consider.i-tion of the gieat advantage  given to the second hand by the use of  the eleven rule, especially7 oiT~the~secohd~  round of the suit, wliich first induced  Cavendish to doubt the value of the second maxim of American leads and finally  to a\ ithdraw his support from it entirely,  riayers soon tire of cutting sticks for  their own backs.  There is one peeuliaiity about secondhand play, as distinguished from that of  any other position at tho table, and that  i\ thatit isu.sually the player's own fault  if ho lets any tricks getaway. Jt is hi*,  duty to protect himself above everything  else; to prevent, if possible, the establishment of the adverse suits; to protect the  suits in which he has reason to believe  that his partner is weak, and to save his  partner's reentry cards when playing a  forward game. Theie A\a& a time when  the second hand had a nice easy job of it  and always knew just what to do, because the leader and his partner played in  strict accordance with a Avell-defiued system in which everything Avas open and  above board, and the strategy of the hand  was based upon the very comfortable but  erroneous belief that information was of  more value to the partner than to the adversaries.  The short suiters have changed all  that. In nine out of ten of the games  played today the second hand does not  know whether he is -afoot or on horseback. The Philistines lead the ten from  A J 10, the king from K, J 10, the jack  from A Q J, and the nine from A 9 5.  The invitation players lead a deuce from  AKQJ and two others, and the ten from  a suit of seven cards headed by the K 10  9, They Avill lead the eight of trumps as  a fourth best, as the higher of two, or as  the top of six, and when they feel like it  "they Avill lead a deuce from a three-card  suit six high. ...  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on S^aguay, U. S., At I it], B. C, and  Dawson City, Yul^oq District.  The modern' Ishmaelito Avill sometimes  make a practice of covering everything if  lie   can,  and   sometimes  he   Avill   cover  nothing.    Some of tho so-called non-in-  fonnatory school always play down with  two cards only, neither being as high as  the ten, when an honor is led, varying  the  monotony  by  occasionally   playing  down Avhen they hold five or six cards of  the  suit.    When  a  higher  card  is  led,  common-sense  players never give up as  good a card as the ten in playing down,  unless they hold the card next is value  beloAv it.    It is argued that such a system  of second-hand  play  gives  the partner  many opportunities to  place  the. cards  with greater accuracy.    With Q J 10, for  instance, they will play the jack first and  then the queen, showing that they must  hold  the ten,  because Avith  queen jack  only, the queen -.would have been played  first,  and .with  queen  jack  small  they  would have played the small card.   Those  avIio  make a practice of  playing  doAvn  seldom or never cover Avith such combinations as queen jack and one small, king  queen and small cards, or ace queen and  small.    If they hold A Q J or K J 10,  they invariably play the middle card, in  order toconce.il the fact that they hold  major or minor tenace, if the suit is returned. - .- . ���   .       ���  Those who believe in playing all two-  card suits doAvn, are forced to play any  honor second hand if it is accompanied  by only one small card. It is certainly  surprising in how many cases a queen  jack or ten will hold the trice Avhen played in second hand in this manner, especially against those Avho make a practice  of leading away from tenace suits.  There is one part of second-hand play  in.which-the neAV school of com mon-sense  players are particularly proficient, probably because they have made a study of  it in connection Avith their theory of the  niauagement of long suit hauds, and that  is, saving partner's cards of re-entry.  When the ordinary long suit player  starts out with a small card from his best  suit such an opening does not convey to  the partner any information as to the  side strength in trumps or re-entry cards,  nor does it give him any particular encouragement to take a chance iu difficult  situations. But when a common-sense  player starts off Avith Avhat looks like a  good suit his partner is always safe in assuming that there is a good chance to  make that suit, because it is probably  Avell  supported  by  trumps  or   re-entry  FULL LINE OF  cards, or both. A little attention to the  fall of the cards Avill usually show in  Avhat suit the re-entry card is held and  the eonimon-sense player then devotes his  energies to the preservation of that card  until the proper time has arrived for its  use. He may try to saAre this card by  carefully avoiding the suit himself, refus-  ; ing to open it until the trumps are out of  the Avay or the time has come to put his  partner into the lead, or he may jump in  second hand Avith high cards from all  sorts of curious combinations on tho  chance that ho Avill save his partner's reentry by so doing.  If avc examine all the games played for  the championship during the years that  the long-suit school Avas in its glory avc  shall find that they do not offer a single  example of this particular coup, although  there wore many opportunities for it,  had the players been alive to its value.  It is one of the new things in tho game  aud is still little known.

A petition is  being  circulated asking  the provincial government to make some  needed repairs to the main trail between  Nelson and Ward's  Crossing.    The trail  serves a A-ery important section of conn-  try from a local  point of  view,  having  tributaries up Sandy, Eagle, Forty-nine,  Bird and Rover creeks upon which more  or less work is going on all tho time.    As  the trail stands at present it will  be impassable in the spring as the bridge has  gone out at Hover creek and the cross-  ways, such as corduroy and small bridges,  arc sadly in  need  of  repairs.    Between  Rover and Bird creeks a positive danger  to travellers  exists   iu   the   form   of an  eight-foot prospecting  shaft  which  has  been sunk so that it encroaches upon two  feet  of   the   trail.     Tliere   is   no  guard  against this and persons travelling over  the trail in the dark run the risk of losing  a horso or tlieir life.    The petition recites  that for a small  expenditure  the Rover  creek tributary to this trail could be extended to catch the trail to the head of  the north fork of the Salmon river. From  this summit to the Columbia & Kootenay  railway the distance is  but  12 miles as  against 23 miles from   Erie,  the present  starting point.      With this connection  made   it   is  thought that   considerable  business might be  secured  for the local  merchants.  Until the .Sandon stock is sold, A. Fer-  Jand & Co. are not only selling tlie goods  in that stock at extremely low prices, but  they are selling their ordinary stock, including new goods that are being opened  daily, at reduced prices.  The ladies' aid society of St. Paul's  church have had their opening meeting  aud given out the work for the sale which  the society .will have during the month  of November. The opening meeting was  in the nature of a social and was attended  by a large number of ladies.  The Blue Bird Mining Company of  Spokane has <a number of men at work  building a two-mile wagon road in from  Deer P.'irk to the mining property which  hits  been  under  development for  some  p.-ist.

A depth  of about 100 feet has been attained upon  the propert3r '"id ore from the paystreak  gives assay values of from .$50 to $12S in  gold.  Hon. _���"**. Clarke Wallace, grand master  of the Orange Lodge of British America,  passed through Nelson yesterday on his  way to Kaslo. Upon his return the grand  master will be given a reception by the  members of Nelson Lodge No. 1002 in the  opera house on Monday evening.  The architect who has charge of the  work of constructing the Baker street  offices of the London & British Columbia  Coldfields announces that there has been  no change of mind with respect to the  company's lirst intention of putting up a  brick building. It will be a two-story  building and entirely devoted to the  company's use.  Edward A. Crease will leave on Monday on a trip to his home in Barrio. On  his return lie proposes bringing his mother and the other members of the family to Nelson to reside.
