 f&  MR. POPKISS ENLIGHTENS THE  **---4-^y  British Shareholders.  The directors of the  London & British  Columbia Goldfields feel they  can  justly  congratulate the .shareholders  upon   the  prospects of the company  and  the welfare of its subsidiary companies, when  the company has, as pointed out  by  Mr.  Popkiss, been so singularly fortunate  in  its staff, and in its acquisition of properties, and it is most satisfactory  to   learn  that  tin*  business   recently acquired in  the Enterprise and Cascade Water Powei  Companies bids fair to  continue  the record of success. In view of the continued  .success of the company's operations since  its reconstruction,   the  directors  of the  London   &  British  Columbia   Goldfields  might  have announced   tlie payment of  an interim dividend, but   having   regard  to the fact that its   funds  are  being  so  profitably employed,  they  tire satisfied  that it would not be to   the  interests  of  tho .shareholders to do so at the moment.  When the returns from the Yukon-Avash-  11 p  .and   other  sources are   received,  an  early distribution may be anticipated.  Regarding the Ruth mines, Mr. Pop-  kiss reports tliat this property is not at  the present time in so satisfactory a condition as he should wish, as owing to  some geological disturbance/the vein has  been cut off in its continuation into the  hill. "This circumstance is considered to  be quite phemcnal, and contrary to all  experience, "whether local or otherwise,  but other veins undoubtedly do exist on  the property. Tliis mine lias produced  large profits from its shipments of clean.,  ore, for which a complete concentrating  mill, capable of treating sixty tons of ore  daily, was being erected and equipped at  the time of iny visit, which should be in  Avorking order in the course of about  two months.  Other veins are said to, and undoubtedly do, exist on the property, but covered  as the whole surface is witli forest* and  -earth' it is quite impossible for nie to  form'any idea of Avhat they are likely  to be.  The Ruth mines aro surrounded by  important properties, which, until the  strike occurred, were being satisfactorily  worked, thus leading me to believe tliat  other important veins do exist upon the  property, and''will be found as time  goes on."

Kicthener May Have Trouble.  London, September 29.���General lord  Kitchener, after a somewhat prolonged  and mysterious expedition to tlie remote  regions of the Soudan, is back again at  Kliartoom, and is understood to be., devising a great scheme of capturing the  fugitive Khalifa. General Kitchener sits  at the telegraph wire and nothing is allowed to get out of the country in the  way of news which he does not approve,  but the information has reached England  in private communications from British  officers, which'indicate that things are  not going so well as Kitchener would like.  The Khalifa has largely increased his following and has been able to suppress  several small risings of chiefs personally  hostile to liim, and he is certainly getting  arms and ammunition by way of Abyssinia. The latter fact goes .far to explain  general Kitchener's anxiety. His great  desire is to capture the Khalifa and consolidate the Soudan with the assistance  of the British troops or even the Egyptian troops beyond those now in his com-:  maud.  General Kitchener's chief anxiety is believed to be the dubious attitude of the  Abyssinians, in connection with which he  sent to Loudon reports which the government would scarcely like to have  published. King Menelek has the bulk of  his big army mobilized, and is concentrating troops at points in a manner perfectly aimless unless lie entertains the  design of interfering with Kitchener's  plans. If it had Hot been for the Anglo-  Egyptian conquest of the Soudan Menelek  would have extended his frontiers to the  Nile. He bitterly resented being warned  off, and still claims an outlet of that  great river. Hence his coquetting with  tlie Khalifa, of which Kitchener has  ample proof, and. his "benevolent neutrality," which enables tho dervishes to���gpt  SHOULD NOT ENTER INTO A HARD  And Fast Agreement.  In dealing with the Hall Minos, Limited,  for a water supply for its  smelter,  tho  city council should not make a hard and  fast agreement, nor should it demand an  unreasonable rate for tho water supplied.  Tho Hall Mines smelter is the largest industrial enterprise in the town, and  its  operation has been a factor in giving tho  town that permanency which has placed  it in the front rank of the solid towns of  the province.    Many towns  would   willingly bonus such an enterprise.    Nelson  is    a    growing    place   and    its    water  supply     should    be    carefully    looked  after.        At    present    there     is     probably  an  ample   supply   for   both   the  uses of the city and the smelter ; but-experience shows that tliere is  a wide difference in the available supply at different times during a year.    While there  is   ample    Avater   now   to   supply   the  smelter %vitli one hundred inches  (about  its requirements), there might be a shortage in mid-Avinter.    Until  such  time  as  the city has a supply that can be depended on at all times, ifc  Avould   not be  wise  to make an agreement to   supply   one  hundred  inches,,or any other  quantity,  for  a  stated  period.    The rate charged  for the  Avater  that is  supplied  should  not be more than the cost of maintaining  the Avater flumes in good repair.

Montkral, September 29.���Two hundred and fifty scantily clad, baggage  bereft men, Avomen and children Avere on  board of an intercolonial special which  steamed into Bonaventure depot this  evening. They comprised the greater  number of those Avho sailed from Liverpool on September 14th on board the  Scotsman, bound for Montreal, and Avere  Avrecked on the shoals in the Straits of  Belle Isle at half-past two on the morning of the 21st. It was not only a tale of  shipwreck they had to tell, but one of  death, suffering and pillage, for fifteen at  .least of the Scotsman's passengers  perished. All suffered terribly fVom cold  and privation, and almost the Avorst horror of all, the men avIio were supposed to  succor and assist those committed to  their care, in the hour of need, turned on  the helpless passengers and Avith loaded  guns and l'cvolvers, compelled them to  ���part with tlieir valuables saved. Captain  Skrimshire aud his officers Avere exceptions. The passengers ascribe to them  the role of heroes.  For the honor of the British merchant-  marine, the crime may not be ascribed to  the men engaged in it, but to a gang of  wharf rats and hangers-on picked up on  the docks at Liverpool to replace the  usual creAV of the Scotsman, Avhich joined  the seamen's strike on the other side.  The list of thpse who perished is : First-  class passengers���Miss Street, Montreal,  companion to Miss Duncan ; Mrs. Childs,  wife of the stage manager of the Sign of  the Cross Company; Mrs. Dickson; Mrs.  Roberts and infant ; Mrs. M. Scott; Mrs.  Robiuson, Avifeof the manager of the Sun  Life Company' of Toronto; Mrs. Robinson,Avife of a former editor of the Toronto Globe. Second-class passengers���Mrs.  M. Seott, Mrs. Watson, Mrs. Talbot,- Mrs.  Tuthill, Mrs. Skeltou, Mrs. Eliza Watkins,  aud Miss B. Weavers. It will be noticed  that all avIio perished Avere women.

Many, of the  passengers suffered from the exposure.  After much difficulty, some overcoats and  shaAvls Avere secured for the wotneti,  nearly everyone of Avhom had left the  ship in her night clothes. The passengers Avere obliged to climb up a rocky  cliff nearly 390 feet high before they  could find a place largo enough to  rest. Here    tliey    stayed     on     the  bare rock for fou��� days and nights.  The first night they had absolutely no  shelter, but on Saturday the captain sent  up some tarpaulin and blankets. These  were very acceptable as it had rained  hard all night antl was most bitterly cold.  A number of passengers attempted to  reach the lighthouse, Avhich Avas about  eight miles aAvay, as the crow flics. To  do this it Avas necessary to climb about  1200 feet higher, before a practicable  path could be reached; and there the  difficulties had only begun. The 'path"  Avas rocky .and uneven and Avas crossed  by huge clefts and gullies, Avhich Avere  very deep; altogether the distance by  land must have been over eight miles  and one gentleman took eleven hours to  reach it, and rested only half an hour on  the Avay. It Avas not until the 2Gth that  the Montford came along and Avas signalled by the Belle Isle light house.  Rover Creek. ;y  A district of great possibilities is the  tract of laud lying between Bird and  Rcver creek Avhich empties into the  Kootenay river near Slocan Junction.  Rover creek can be reached by rail or by  the old trail from Nelson. Up Bird creek  are a number of claims the principal  of Avhich is the Ophir group now  under option to a Rossland outfit.  The rock from this property is a schist  containing fiue iron pyrites which run  high in gold. The lead is of varying  thickness and at present it is difficult to  judge of its depth as not sufficient development   Avork  has   been    done   yet.

MORE WARLIKE PREPARATIONS  Continue in England and the Transvaal  Capktoavn, September 29.���A despatch  from Glencoe, Natal, says : " Telegi-aphic  communication betAveen here and the  Transvaal is temporarily interrupted.

The camp is free from  sickness and patrols are regular,  especially in the direction of De  Jager's drift on the Buffalo river,  Avhere the Boers aro reported to be  laagered. The greatest enthusiasm prevails. The second movement of troops  from Ladysmith to Dundee Avas carefully  concealed and expeditiously carried out.  Tho townspeople only know of the  mannmver by the presence of troops. It  is stated that tho burghers have requested  permission to either return to their farms  or raid Natal.

South  African telegrams receiAred at the ''colon-'  ial office this ;morning did not contain  president Kruger's reply as supposed, but  referred to other matters. The cabinet  therefore was unable to discuss the reply.  Significance is attached to the fact that.:  Mr. A. J.

Mining development is not  wholly hiis])cii��lc(l. it is true,  ,   but it has been alarmingly  eui tailed.    <  ' The Nelson Miuer is the subsidized  organ of the Nelson District Mine Owners'  Association, find its utterances voice the  views of tlie members of the association.  The Kaslo Kooten.uan is also controlled  by men who, as individuals, are opposed  to the eight-hour law. The JBLootenaian  makes a statement of fact, while the  statement of tho Miner is wholly, untrue.  The Joining industry, taken as a whole,  "was never on a better footing than it is  today.' It is true, some of the Slocan  mines and one mine at Ymir are not  working full forces because of the refusal  - of��� their-managers���to recognize_miners  as business men who have something to  sell; but it is also true that hundreds of  men that were formerly employed in  these mines are  now  engaged  in  doing  PETER GENELLE & CO.  work that is developing properties into  productive mines. A visit to Rossland,  Avhich, wo believe, is in Kootenay, would  convince even the most skeptic that mining was not wholly suspended. A visit  to the IlalllMines smelter at Nelson would  have a like result. A visit, to the little  town of Moyie, in lOast Kootenay, would  convince even the editor of the Nelson  Miner that the industrial situation there  is not at all gloomy. A trip to Ainswortli  would prove tliat the oldest camp in Kootenay is a hive of industry. Over in Boundary district, hundreds of men aredevclop-  ingiuincsaiid buildingsmeltcrs. Kootenay  is all right, and the little friction that  exists "between a few pompous mine'  managers and tlio. mine workers would  disappear within thirty days wore only  such newspapers as the Nelson Miner  muzzled for a time.  Vancouvkii is moie or less agitated  over a propos.il that in the suggested  amendments to the city charter, which  are to bo municipally recommended to  the favorable consideration of the provincial, government and legislature next  session, there be included a clause  making it  lawful  for the council, in lp_t__  then prevailing in the town ($2.50 per  day), and as all contractors were re-  i|iiired to put up a certified check for  one-fourth of the amount of tlieir contracts, there was no successful attempt  nia.de to evade the clause, and Nelson  has had little trouble with either contractors or laborers. It is true, contractors did not like the clause, but they  had either to accept it or not bid. It has  worked well in Nelson, where there is no  organized Trades and Labor Council. If  such a clause will not hold in law,  then the legislature should make it law.  Such a clause and the requirement'  that the contractors shall in all cases put  up a cash bond ensures a city good workmen and good work.  TiiKRi'" would be no professional   temperance   agitation   against    the    liquor  traffic, were it not for the fact that  one  per cent of those who drink do so   to excess; these extreme cases  furnishing almost the entire stock in trade of the professional  temperance  agitators.      Were  all the men engaged in the traffic  to refuse to sell liquor to habitual drunkards,  or to men intoxicated, the  traffic  would  not be held in such ill repute as it is, aud  the men who  so   refused  would  not be  made to suffer for the sins of those wlio are  willing     to     sell     liquor     to     anyone  having    the    money    to     pay    for    it.  So   with    gambling.      It     is     an    evil  that     cannot     be     suppressed.       Men  will gamble ; but were those who gamble  protected from the professional tricksters  that are allowed to frequent premises, in  which gambling is carried on, little would  be  heard  of the  effects  of  the   "evil."  But too many of those  who  allow  gambling on their premises arc  not  satisfied  with a reasonable rake-olf, and the result  is that those  that  are  fair  are  classed  with those that are unfair���and gambling  is suppressed.    The fanatical temperance  advocate   would   close up  all  places in  which liquor  is  sold  every  day in the  week, simply because a few  of the  men  avIio sell liquor  are  lacking  in  common  sense     and     common    decency.       The  suppressor      of      the      gambling     evil  Avould        do        likcAvise        Avith        all  places     at      AA'hich     men      meet      to  play  a  game  of   " sluff" or a  game  of  " draA\y" simply because a few prefer" to  rob those Avho frequent their resorts.    In  both instances, the innocent 'arc  always  made  to suffer AA'ith   the   guilty when  the civic authorities are lacking in moral  courage.  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.

That  is  a question which  Mr. William Archor considers in tho Pall  Mall Magazine.    "Most  Englishmen," ho  remarks, "are still guilty of a thoughtless  captiousness toward Americans, wliich is  none the less galling because it manifests  itself in   thp  most   trifling  matters.'    A  friend  of my own returned  a few years  ago  from  a-short tour   in   tlie United  States, declaring that he heartily disliked  the  country, and  would   never go back  again.    Inquiry as to the grounds of liis  dissatisfaction elicited no more definite or  damning charge than tluit 'they'  (a collective   pronoun presumed  to  cover the  whole   American  -people)   hung   up   his  trousers instead ol folding them���or vice  versa, for I am heathen enough not to remember  which .is.'the orthodox process.  Doubtless  he  liad   other,   and   possibly  weightier,  causes of complaint; but this  was  the  head   and front of   America's  offending.    Another Englishman  of education and position, being asked why he  had  never crossed the  Atlantic, gravely  replied that he could not endure to travel  in  a  country where  you  liad  to  black  your  own boots!    Such  instances of ig-  liorance and pettiness may seem absurdly  trivial, but they are quite sufficient to  act as grits in the machinery of social intercourse.    Americans are very fond of  citing as an example of English manners  the  legend of a  groat lady  who, at  an  American breakfast, saw lier-husband cle-  .  dining a dish which was offered to him,  NOTICE.

THOMAS SPHOAT.   -  Nelson,:B. t".,Septejiib'ei'!)Ili..' :  aud  called across the table,  'Take some,  my dear���it  isn't   half as  nasty  as  it  looks.'      Three    different   people    havo  vouched to me for the truth of this anecdote, each   naming tlio heroine and each  giving   her a.   different   iranie.    True   or  false, it is held in America to bo typical;  and it would scarcely be so popular as it  is unless jpeoplo had suffered a good deal  from the   tactlessness which   it exemplifies.    The same vice, in a more insidious  form, appears in a remark made to me  the other day by an Englishman of very  high   intelligence, who made a long tour  in America, 'and  was,   in  the main,  far  from  unsympathetic.    'What I folb,' he  said, 'was thesuburbanism of everything.  It jjwas all Clapham or CamberwoII on a  gigantic scale.'    Some justice of observation may possibly have lain  behind this  remark,    though  I   certainly   failed   to  recognize-it.    But in the form of its expression   it exemplified that   illusion of  metropolitanism which is to my mind the  veriest cockneyism in disguise, and which  cannot-but  strike Americans as either  ridiculous or offensive."  A Successful Detective.  I suppose the joke is on me, said the  detective, and if it wasn't for the fact  that others are telling the story I would  s.ay nothing about it. I was called into  the chief's office the other day and given  a burglary ease to look up. The only  possible clue that existed was a description of a suspicious character who was  seen near the house where the burglary  was committed, shortly before it happened.    The party who had seen the suspic-  FOR SALE  BUSINESS AND RESIDENTIAL  PKOPERTY <��� .   '.  30 by  120, Maker  Ward streets   street, between Josephine and  SSOOO  ions  character liad beeu able to give a  good description of him, and I was instructed by  the chief to visit the shady  spots in the .city and see if I couldn't run  him down and make him give an account  of himself.    I   have tackled worse cases  than  that, and  I  started out with the  idea that I would have the man wauted  behind the bars before the day was out.  But it wiis not as easy as I had anticipated.    The  description did not fit any old  crook that  I knew, and I Avas  i>o.sitive  that I was on the trail of a new and dangerous num.    I spent the day making the  rounds of the low joints and dives where  the thieves gathered, but without finding  any one that answered to the description  given  mo.    Along about  night, when   J  was tired and discouraged, I chanced to  catch a glimpse of my own reflection in a  mirror behind the bar, and 1 was thunderstruck to see that my own reflection  answered to the description of the party  that I was looking for.    Liko a flash it  dawned   upon me  that I had passed the  house  whore   the   burglary   liad  taken  place shortly before it happened.    With  a     horrible     suspicion    of   the    truth  of the   matter   I  looked    up  the    party who had furnished the description and  wtis readily identified as the man he had  seen.    I had been chasing about town all  day in  a  vain  attempt  to  run  myself  down.    But then I succeeded, and that is  some satisfaction.   Millionaire Troubles.

A small country paper announced that Mr. Rockefeller  intended  to  buy   half  the Adirondacks  and make them into a park.    The article  wtis widely quoted, and soon letters  began to pour in.    The letters tvere  soon  followed by brokers, fanners, real estate  agents and speculators.    Mr. Rockefeller  at first denied the report, but this had no  effect.     His  secretary   answered   every  letter in the negative, but this proved ineffective.    His clerks were instructed to  tell all callers that their employer did not  want any Adirondack land, but even this  wtis futile.    Not long ago Mr. Hockefeller  was driving, according  to the  Philadelphia Post, anil stopped to rest his horses,  when a man  suddenly  walked out from  behind  the trees and asked  for a match.  Mr. Rockefeller went through his pockets  aud handed the man three or four.    The  man  struck  a match and  said :    "I am  very much obliged to you, sir; I wanted  a match  very badly, and you  came just  in the nick of time.

The question as to the accrued interest

the payment of some $300 odd being the
amount of the accrued interest upon the

were issued till the money for their purchase was paid into the bank to the credit
of the city. The city lias offered to divide the pot Avith the purchaser of the

likely that this offer AA'ill be accepted.
