Array X  SHIPMENTS MADE IN ONE DAY  7, y Wholesale Merchants in Nelson.  A week or so ago tlie Fernie Free Press  said: "One good effect of the construction of the Crow's Nest Pass railway will  be felt by wholesale merchants in Winnipeg in the neAV fast freight just established by the 0. P. II., by which goods can  now be sent from Winnipeg to Nelson,  Rossland and other Kootenay points in  live days.'" In commenting on the words  quoted TnI': Tkimi*n'K said: "The people  of Nelson and' liossland and other points  in Kootenay are just a trifle'ambitious.  They do not want to be a tail to anybody's kite. They want to be the kite  themselves and let someone else be the  tail. They want wholesale houses near  homo, and they aro getting what they  want. There are today a dozen houses in  Nelson that do an exclusively -wholesale  business. The merchant at Fernie who  deals in Nelson saves four days iu time  over the merchant who deals in Winnipeg. What the people of Kootenay want  is a Winnipeg in Kootenay." All of  which appeared to be news to the Fernie  Free Press, as the following from-its last  issue goes to show:'.  TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 20, 1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $2.  We wore not aware that Nelson hurt so many wholesale houses, .������.ml we doubt very liiticli if there are two  lnerehants in l��'ernio who know that they have any at  all. A close scrutiny of the advertising columns of The  Tiihuno failed to disclose anything in the way of wholesale dealers in anything except fresh meal. In these enlightened days live business men make known l.o the  nuhiio through the press what lliey hiivo 1.6 oll'er. If  Nolson has a dozen exclusively wholesale houses that  are anylhiiif? like uj>-to date tliey should make il. known  and ko'o|> I hut fact continually heforc the people they expect to do business with. If (hoy expect lo do business  in l''ornio thev should let the business men of tho fowu  know t.liroiiKh the columns of 1 he I'Vee I 'reus what they  have for sale. Wc do not think there is a business man  in Kornio but who would rat her deal in Nelson, when so  much time can ho saved, provided they can do so satis-  I'o'olorily, which no doubt they etui.  Nelson has houses that do a straight)  jobbing trade, that is, they sell direct to  dealers and secure orders through regularly employed travelers. The merchandise sold is shipped from Nelson, where  the  stocks   are   carried.    The  ran go   of  D country supplied from Nelson is hot a  small one, by any means, and the lines of  goods embraces everything in the way of  provisions; hardware and mining supplies,  liquors, cigars, dry goods, drugs and as-  " sayers' supplies. Ti us Tim hunk called ou  the wholesale dealers yesterday and asked  for a list of. the ,: points to which goods  were shipped during the clay, .aud iu every  instance the information was given cheerfully, but in several 'houses- it was remarked tliat the showing would be better any day in the week than on Monday.  In the list given below, only four of the  firms named do a  retail business as well  -'as  wholesale,   namely,  TI.  Bycrs  <fc Co.,  Lawrence   Hardware   Company,   W.  F.  . Te'etzol & Go., and  P. Burns <fc Co".    It is  safe to state that ,thero is not another  ' town in Canada of the size of Nelson that  can make as good a showing, either as to  -.the variety of goods -handled or the area  of territory covered. -  .

Percy Dickenson of Slocan City has secured a bond on* a five-sixths interest of  the Kootenay Queen and Slocan Chief  No. 10 claims, ou the head of the south  fork of- Kaslo creek. The principal holder  in the properties was Alex. Sproat of New  Denver, Avho conducted the negotiations,  having associated with him AV. Francis  of Spokane, and Frank Locasto, who is  now in the Boundary country. The bond  is for .$IS,000, covering a year, and a cash  payment of 10 per cent. There has been  considerable work done on the group,  upon which is a body of high grade ore  exposed. Locasto's interests were advertised to be sold by the sheriff on  Thursday last, but the matter was satisfactorily adjusted. Tho remaining sixth  interest is held by Bort  don, who preferred to  while yet.  CONTRACT SYSTEM IS ADOPTED  Piorson of San-  hang  on  for a  By the Slocan Star and Bosun.  Special to the Tribune.  Neav Denver, September 25.���Tlie  Bosun started operations this morning,  four men going to work on the first shift.  A great many rumors regarding this  property and its probable workings arc-  in circulation, much to the annoyance of  the management. At the local ollice of  the Northwest Mining Syndicate it was  stated this morning that the men were  being put to work on recently .purchased  properties to enable the company to secure crown grants for them. On the  other hand it is believed by tho miners  that the preparations of today are but  those for the installation of a much  larger force on the first. However, it is  a satisfaction to know that the men were  employed and that they arc getting $3.50  per day.  Contract work has been started on the  Slocan Star, being confined to the No. 5  tunnel.    Four men are employed.  There is a much better feeling prevailing in the camp now, as the properties are  resuming operations. The forces may  not be as large as formerly, but the contract system enables both sides to feel  satisfied���tlio owners, that an easy way  has been found to Jet them down easy ;  and the men, because they realize that  victory rests with them and that they  arc getting $3.50 per day at least. It is  likely now that tho present friction will  be removed and that =the mines will'get  down to tho basis-of $3.50 for, "eight  hours. ' - .  RAILWAY   AND    STEAMBOAT   NOTES.*  ' The Hall Mines, Limited,' shipped  two  . carloads of matte last evening to the refinery   at   Newark,   New   Jersey.     The  matte went over the Crow's Nest branch.  A carload of 28-p'ouud rails arrived in  Nelson yesterday for the Nelson Coke &  Gas Company.' The rails were purchased  from the Canadian Pacific company- at-  Trail, and will be used by the coke company in moving material around its  works.  The steamer Minto is now relieving  the steamer .Trail while the Latter is being repaired and put in order for the  winter. Captain Forsland is iii command  of the Minto.  The Canadian Pacific Telegraph Company is building additional telegraph  lines from Nelson to Rossland and Boundary. There are already two wires to  Rossland and one to Boundary, but they  .are insufficient for the company's  business.              Practical Charity.

T. G. Proctor, wlio returned from a trip  to Elko yesterday, says mining is brisk in  that sectiou of East ��� Kootenay. The  B. A. 0. has a large force of men doing  development work oii the Maple Leaf,  Wyustay and Burton claims. The Cliicka-  maustone, on Bull river, has now become a  mine ready for sliippiug.  It is reported  <fe Mann  stock   in  Elko  are  have secured  this venture,  several engi-  tha't Mackenzie  a big block of  In the town of  neers, who are making reports on the  water power to be obtained there from  the Elk river. A big scheme is on foot  for utilizing this power for calcium-carbide and pulp works, as the quantity of  spruce timber in the immediate vicinity  is an important adjunct iu pulp manufacture.  THE BOARD OF TRADE ACCEPTS  An Invitation to Visit Spokane.  A meeting of the board of trade was  held yesterday to consider the invitation  received from the managers of the Spokane exposition. There were present the  president, the secretary, and Messrs.  Banner-man, Bellamy, Dowsing, Gamble,  Holt, Kelly, Jowett, MacLeod, Procter,  Renwick and Sherwood.  The secretary read the formal invitation Avhich invited the board of trade to  be present on the International day in  particular at the exposition.  W. A. Jowett then read some extracts  from a letter he had received from Mr.  Bolster showing that every convenience  and a hearty welcome would await the  expected visitors from Nelson. He then  said that both he aiid W. H. Dowsing  had been active in beating up names of  those who intended to visit the exposition  for the International day and had secured  39 promises. A good many of those who  had been asked expressed an opinion to  the effect that a lower rate than a single  fare should be allowed for from Monday  to Thursday. He himself Avas also of  that opinion.  T. G. Procter thought that the single  fare was low enough and those who  wanted to go would not kick at $2 or $3  more or less for traveling expenses.  The president was similarly inclined  aud stated that the rate from Nelson was  on a par with all other rates from all  points north of Spokane. There were no  discriminating rates offered to towns over  the line.  A long discussion followed on the rate  question but no decision was come to on  that point.  On the motion of W. A. Jowett the  invitation was accepted, and after passing  a vote of thanks to W. A. Jowett and  W. H. Dowsing for their services and a  request that they continue their good  work, the meeting adjourned.  Orangemen Welcome Clarke Wallace.  N.  Clarke   Wallace,   M. P.,   sovereign  grand master of the Orange Association  of Canada, was given a most enthusiastic  reception at the opera house lasteveniug.  When it is remembered that the meeting  was somewhat of an impromptu nature,  and that .the -subject of tho address was'  more.ot; less hackneyed, it" must be considered .as  complimentary-"to the visitor  that-close upon 300 "people turned out to  listeu to him.    It would   be  difficult for  anyone to give an-address upon-Orange-*  ism without touching  more or less upon  Canadian politics.  'This- almost impossible feat was not.essayed-by Clarke Wallace last  evening. , He  said that the underlying principle of the  order was loyalty, and when the members of tlie order  ' considered tliat the interests of the em-,  pi re wore being  subjugated. to those of  any foreign power, the order became not  only political  but aggressively political.  The  several  occasions   upon  which the  association in Caiiada injected itself into  politics were referred  to,  and the statement made that ��� in  each  and  every instance the,motive was loyalty and the result the public good.    Throughout his remarks  the   speaker   leaned toward the  Conservative  party.    He   denounced,  of  course, the action  of the late Conservative ministry in endeavoring to force its  -remedial legislatioiiwith-i'espect-to-Mani-  toba through the -house of commons, but  ho added  that the Liberal government  which succeeded  it  had  done  worse in  seeking the intervention of foreign church  dignotaries in a purely provincial dispute.  That the speaker was not in accord with  the dominant' federal  party was further  emphasized when he contrasted the public works policy of the two governments,  and addedthat lie  could not agree with  the finding  of  sir  Richard  Cartwright,  since he had assumed office, that the Liberal party was  responsible  for about 95  per  cent  of   the   prosperity  which  the  country was enjoying and the Almighty  for the remaining five per cent. Throughout his remarks the speaker was warmly  applauded.    On the platform With him  Avere Rev. Robert Frew, chairman; John  Toye, master of the Nelson lodge; Rev.  John Robson, and W. A, Jowett.    Upon  .the-conclusion of the address, John Toye  moved a vote of thanks to Mr. Wallace,  which "was seconded by Rev. John Robson.   The chairman,   after   putting the  same to the audience, conveyed it to Mr.  Wallace,  avIio   acknowledged   the same  briefly, __^ ;__  The Victoria Globe Dies.  Victoria,-, September 25.���After eight  months' existence the Daily Globe has  quit, there- being no issue today. The  Globe appeared to have a two-fold mission  of disciplining senator Tern pieman for his  want of sympathy with certain local  Liberal aspirations, and to accomplish  the downfall of the Semlin ministry.  The senator has been unresponsive except  that five cents a week was docked from  the price of "his paper, tlie Times, to meet  tlie Globe's cheaper rate; and the Semlin  ministry also has survived the assault  which cost several thousand dollars hard  cash.  ONE MORE TIME AND DISTANCE  Saver for Kootenay Towns.  The Nelson & Bedlington railway is  Hearing completion, and when in operation, Kootenay points like Nelson, Kaslo,  Ainswortli, " and Sandon, will bo two  hundred miles and from twelve to twenty-  four hours nearer Montana points liko  Kalispel, Great Falls, Helena, and Butte.  Now travelers are required to go out via  Spokane, Avhich is two hundred miles distant from Nelson, thence east over the  Great Northern or Northern Pacific.  When trains aro running over the Nelson & Bedlington road, the 200 ,miles between Nelsoii and Spokane Avill be saved,  as the distance from Nelson to Bonner's  Ferry is but 105 miles as against 104 from  Spokane to Bonner's Ferry. Travelers  for Montana .jioints Avill be able to leave  Nelson or Kaslo at 7 o'clock in the morning and make connection tit Bonner's Ferry at .1.40 o'clock iu the afternoon with  the Groat Northern's "Pacific Fast Mail,"  and passengers for Kootenay points arriving on the "Pacific Fast Mail" at Bonner's Ferry at 4:20 o'clock in the morning  will be able to take dinner in Nelson or  Kaslo.

The "judgment in the case of Clever vs.  Lacasto litis been satisfied by the payment by the ^defendant, Frank Lacasto,  of $245. In order to satisfy this judgment the sheriff some time ago seized the  defendant's interest in the Slocan Chief,  No. 10 and Kootenay Queen.  . R. F. Pcrryvyesterday paid into .court  the sum of $70125 the amount of the fine  and costs imposed by stipendiary magistrate Crease for an infraction of the  License Act of 1899. On Wednesday tho  license commissioners will sit" to consider  the application of Mrs." Alice Perry for a  license for the same premises. As it appeared from the evidence taken" during  the prosecution of Perry that ho has aii  interest in the premises this fact will,  probably debar His wife from receiving a  license.  An effort is'being made by the house  surgeon of the Kooteiiay Lake General  Hospital to liave Henry Murtou, who is  at present an inmate of the hospital, admitted to the old men's homo at Kam-  loops. Murton-is now fSG years old and is  unable to work. He lias followed mining  all his life, the.last three of wliich htive  been spent in Kootenay.  Nothing new. has been heard from Vancouver with respect to the readjustment  of iusurauce rates iu tlie business portion  of the city. Some weeks ago Inspector  Hobson, representing the Mainland board  of underwriters, went into the matter  with the local agents in Nelson, who pre-  -pared-a-list-settiug-out-theirviews-Avitir  respect to the readjustment, and as the  general agents are not expected to visit  Nelson again for some time, it is not improbable that the board of underwriters  at Vancouver will accept this list and act  upon it. When the readjustment Is made  it* will materially reduce the insurance in  blocks 5 and 10. In the former it will  probably reduce the rate from 0.j to 31  and 4 per cent, with lesser reductions in  block 10.  The Iloman Catholic choir had a rehearsal of the mass for the opening ceremony on Sunday in the new chinch.  They have made real progress.  R, R. Head Icy, the superintendent of  the snlelter, who. has been laid up fov the  last fortnight with a orushed foot, is now  able to get about"again.  Dr. Keliar's infant son was buried in  the Nelson cemetery on Sunday morning,  the service at the grave being conducted  by the Rev. H. Irwin of Rossland.  Fred Irvine & Co. of Nelson, by actual  count, shipped five more mail orders, yesterday to points in the Slocan and on  Kootenay lake than- were forwarded by  the express company as coming from T.  Eaton & Co. of Toronto.  E. J. Haughten, who was formerly connected with the Outlet hotel, opposite  Balfour, lias applied for an hotel license  at Nine-Mile point. As there is no travel  to Nine-Mile at present it is supposed  that the application for a license is made  with the idea that construction on. the  Crow's Nest Pass road around Kootenay  lake Avill be commenced shortly.  The tramway company expects to have  its roadbed completed and the steel laid  to the skating rink by the latter part of  October. The rolling stock is expected  by the middle of the month  and  it will ]  Power Company and the installation of  electrical machinery when the company  can commence operating.  An order has been issued by the supreme  court staying the execution in the case of  Callalian vs. Coplen. In this action the  defendant Coplen secured judgment for  .$02(i. costs in an adverse action and the  court gave permission for an execution  to issue against Charles Callahan .as administrator of the estate of William  Callahan. , Under this the sheriff seized  the interests of Callahan in the Cody  Fraction tind Joker Fraction claims near  Cody. .  TRANSVAAL TROUBLE CONTINUES  Text of Chamberlain's Despatch.  London, September 25.���The officials of  the foreign office this evening gave out  the text ofthe letter of Joseph Chamberlain to sir Alfred Milner, dated September  22nd. The British reply expressed regret  that her majesty's offer (number five) of  September has been refused and says the  "one subject her majesty's government  has in view in the recent negotiations  has been stated in a manner which cannot  admit of misapprehension, viz, to obtain  such substantial and immediate representation for the Uitlanders as will enable them to secure for themselves that  fair and just treatment which was formally promised them in 1881, aud which  her majesty intended to secure for them  when she granted privileges .of ..self-government to the Transvaal. No conditions  less comprehensive than those contained  in the telegram of September 4rd can be  relied on to effect this object.  THE   CITY   FINANCES.

With the  completion of the line to Grand Forks  there has come a big cut in rates, the  company quoting a 2o-ceut rate for ten-  word messages with two cents for additional words. The rate will be the same  to Greenwood when that point is reached.  W. S.

By the payment of $1125 the city purchases lots 0,10, Hand 12 in block 23,  lots 1 and 2 in block US, and lot 2 in block  .34, or 13 lots in all.

Hod gins, architect for the new  Madden block, wrote to the council ask- *  ing how Mr. Madden should proceed to  obtain permission to htive an open area  on Ward street for entrance to a barber  shop in the basement of the building.  The opening required would be 3 feet  by 12 feet G inches. If the council  had power to grant this permission this  letter must be taken as Mr. Madden's ap-*"  plication for the same.  Alderman Hillyer was in favor of the  matter being taken up by the council.  The city was rapidly increasing and similar applications would soon have to be  dealt with. Even if a special bylaw had  to be passed it should be done.  Alderman Fletcher rather begrudged  the expense of a new bylaw unless paid  for by the applicant. Anyhow lie said it "  was a question of give and take and  ought, to be referred to the board of  works with power to act. A resolution  in accordance with this proposition was- *  passed. . "    ,  S. Y. Parr wrote applying for the sole .'  right to number  tho  houses  in  Nelson.  The householders would have to pay him  for this,  the city simply  ordering  the-,  numbering and giving him the exclusive-  right.     On motion of alderman McKillop .  the application was laid over until alderman Beer's bylaw*was passed.  The B. C. Pottery Co. wrote suggesting  ,  that they should be permitted to deliver  the whole of the pipes called for in their  ,  contract  forthwith.    The  city  engineer  pointed out that the  terms  of the. eon-   ��  tract" called  for the  pipe  being shipped  when required.'    On the motion of alder--  man Fletcher it' was . resolved, that "tlie  pipe should be delivered according to the  terms of the contract.  -A petition signed by thirteen of tlie  barbers of- Nelson- was read1 praying for  the,passing of the barbers' Sunday closing  bylaw. The petition .stated that there-  were but thirteen barbers in Nelsou.J On  the motion of alderman' McKillop the  petition was held over until the reading /  of the said bylaw.  Alderman Hillyer, who had given notice of introducing this and- the other  Sunday closing bylaws, then asked -for  leave to withdraw the same,- which was,  granted. ' ' '  Two tenders for fire alarms were referred to the board of works to report on., ,  The mayor stated that the late chief of  -police-had-been-supplied bythecityavitli���  ti new uniform two days before his  resignation. Chief Jarvis had purchased  tut uniform at his own expense. The  couucil left it to the mayor to arrange  how the new chief should be refunded.  An application from  A.  Steel for tho  position of collector of road taxes, which-  was backed by the signature  of several  citizens wtis received and filed.  Alderman Hillyer said tliat during a  recent visit to Spokane he had been tip-  prnached .by a theatrical speculator as to  the advisability of building a music hall  and beer garden in Nelson. He (alderman Hillyer) was of the opinion that a  well conducted respectable institution of  that sort would be a great benefit to the  '"boys" of the town and would moreover .  keep a lot of money iu the town. During  the long winter evenings there was little  or no amusement for young men in Nelson and the consequence was th.-.t, hours  of leisure wore spent in saloons and elsewhere. Something on the lines of tho  'Vancouver music hall could not be objected to by anyone save narrow-minded  chapel folk and saloon keepers who would  fear loss of custom. He had been asked  to sound tho city council as to what they  thought of the scheme. The mayor and  alderman Fletcher seemed to think that  a properly conducted music hall would,  be an acquisition. However, the council  did not see their way to coming to any  decision that night on the matter, so alderman Hillyer gave notice of bringing  in a bylaw tit the neyt regular meeting  dealing with the subject.  Tho road tax bylaw No. 49 was then  put through its various stages and a  meeting was called for tomorrow m order  to finally consider it.  The Sunday closing bylaws will come  up at the next tegular meeting.  r,-r; pfC?-       ,��. ���**  v ;;i  THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON, B.C.

CURRICNT RATJC OF INTEREST PAID  MINERS   FROM   AFRICA.  Revelstoke Mail.  Startling as the above headline is, it  but goes to show how far the mine owners may go in their fight against the miners and their cause. Last Tuesday superintendent .Patterson of the Wakelield  Mimes,Limited, atSilverton,dee],*u*ed that  before ho would receive a committee  from tlie miners, or treat with the union  in any way,''he would bring miners from  Africa to operate tho mine; and that<was  what he intended to do. c  It might be asked what kind of. men  Mr. Patterson expects to bring from  Africa., white or black. ..There can be  little doubt that Kaffir labor.would suit  some of the mine owners.  As more complete reports come in  from the Slocan camps, it is shown that  the miners' liave a good fight arid the  owners a very bad case. Some of the  methods .used to secure riien for the niines  were exposed by the Mail last week, but  it js evident that the general public has  no idea of the.lengths to wliich the mine  owners, will go in getting help to operate  their mines.  Charles Lawson, the delegate sent to  Silverton by.the Revelstoke miners to report on the conditions under which the  men would have to work at the Wakefield, -returned Saturday night. On being  seen, "1VIi\_Lawspn most  emphaticnliy de-  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Sl^aguay, U. S., Atlin,, B.C, and  Dawson City, Yul\ori District.  Edith, and they have a policeman guarding them."  In conclusion, Mr. Craig said: "lam  not a member of the carpenter's union,  nor of any union, but this is every work-  ingnian's fight, and the man who will go  to work there now is the dirtiest kind of  n scab."  The miners of Revelstoke havo made  many friends in the south country, and  the union men feel like cheering when  Revelstoke is mentioned. The Mail is in  receipt of a letter from the miners thanking it for exposing the methods used  by the managers, and the secretary of the  secretary of the Silverton miner's union  has written A. C. Thompson, thanking  him for his aid, and making a. thorough  explanation of the situation. In relation  to Mr. Patterson's statement that miners  of any kind could not be secured in tho  Slocan, he said that the union could  furnish the Wakefield or any other mine  with 800 union niinersA'ony:forty-eight  hours' notice. ���       .      ='  A Leaf From Laurier's Book.  Toronto Telegram.  Why should W. W. B. Melnnes, M.P.,  be so energetically assailed by friends of  the Laurier. government for remarking  that-the.' people of British Columbia,  might have to solve the Chinese question;  by an appeal to force? No "word iii Mc-'  Innes' speech canbe construed into meaning that British Columbians should forth-  Avith proceed "to' accomplish by force  what the Dominion government has failed to perform. Melnnes did nothing  more than suggest the duty of the people-  in case of a certain eventuality; suggest-,  ing that conditions were possible which  would require the application of a remedy by those who suffer, from the almost  unrestricted importation of Oriental  labor. Three years' acquaintance with  the sunny smiles' regime of sir Wilfrid  Laurier has dimmed the memory of those  of his following who are now denouncing  Melnnes for his alleged heinous offence in  foreshadowing tlie possible necessity of a  resort to force. Melnnes had only to  consult the record of "the leader he was  sent to Ottawa to support" to find a precedent for his utterance at Nanaimo. It  was Wilfrid Laurier, was it not, who, on  the floor of parliament, gave a most unqualified endorsation of rebellion as the  proper moans of the half-breeds of the  Northwest securing redress? He abetted  a disposition to resort to arms���declared  that in such a holy conflict his heart, his  FULL LINE OF  musket oven, should be with the uprising  against the law. Laurier. was ready.to  secure by force what the authorities were  not prepared to concede. Wherein the  greater offence of W. W. B. Melnnes, M.  P., who in language not approaching the  severity of his leader's, suggests that  the people of British Columbia may have  to remove by force a grievance which the  Dominion government declines to remedy? British Columbia is stirred by the  government's inactivity in a matter of  vital concern to the province, as were  the people Wilfrid Laurier championed  in the Canadian Northwest. Before the  friends of the Laurier government begin  screeching about Melnnes' indiscreet  words on the stump, they might justify  Wilfrid Laurier's pro-rebellion speech  made on the floor of parliament.

Jfo man should go into that conn-  try} unless it be to see the niiiiers engaged in one of the best fights ineil can make  for what they think is right,, and I believe will win. Iii filet "they can't help  but win, and the way to help them is to  stay away. The miners are gentlemen.  Tliere was no begging, no soliciting, no  threatening. They simply put the case  plainly to the men, thou leave it to themselves to decide if they will go to work.  Tlie quiet dignity of tlie miners, their  manliness, and consciousness that they  had right and justice ou their side, has  never* failed to impress the men, and all  through this long struggle, with two exceptions, every miner has refused to go  to work. It was very different witli the  superintendent, the contractors, and  others about tlie mine. They were shifty  and evasive, and a straightforward story  could not be secured from one of them.  Patterson said he expected to have the  concentrator up in a very short time and  the whole mine in operation; but he  talked like a man with no hope of success, and was.much discouraged; later in  the conversation he said that before he  would receive a committee from the min-.  ers or treat with the union in any way  lie w.onld bring iu miners from Africa,  and that was what he intended to do.

THE LOCAL NEWS OF THE TOWN
More Power Thcan Was Expected.
City engineer McCulloch  made  a  trip
over the electric light fluino on Saturday
for the purpose of  ascertaining  why  no
water was Ikrwing through it.    He found
tliat someone had turned tlio water off at
the dam.    As   the drop in tlie water at
the electric light  power house   was   not
noticed   till   late   Thursday  night, it is
thought that tho water   was  turned   oil'
sometime  during  the   forenoon   of  that
day.    When the city engineer turned the
water buck into the   Hume   he  measured
the volume passing through  and  found
that there were fully  •17')   miners' inches
Avith  lifty  inches  going to waste.    The
city  engineer  estimates   that  with   the
present   head at  the   power  house   the
water   [lowing   through   the   Hume  will
furnish 200 horse power without storing
the   day   How.     When   horse  power  is
quoted to the city nt *!?*)() per  annum   by
big power companies it is not  difficult to
appreciate  that   in   the water which the
city has  brought  in   by means   of the
present flume it has a very  valuable  asset.    There   is   move   than   double   the
quantity of water ilowing  through the
flume than was estimated  by  the  engineers before the  work   was  undertaken.
This is explained by  the  unusually wet
season and further by the  circumstance
that the current in the stream  is  much
greater than was at first estimated.
Hugh Nixon is one of the all-round
workers in the city's employ. He lias
built bridges, repaired flumes, laid sidewalks, put in street crossings, and is now
engaged at setting up a 5-ton scales.
"Alec" McLeod of Ainswortli, who was
rather roughly hand led ji short time ago
by an angry bear, is able to be around
again. He attributes his escape tp the
circumstance that when the bear knocked
him down he remained perfectly  quiet.
