I *��*~       London, October 4.���A meeting of  the  i Liberal  members  of  tlie house of  coin-  *; nions, including several former members  '���> of  tlie  Liberal  cabinets, was  held  this  ���i morning at tlie private residence  of tho  j! leader  of  the Liberal  opposition in the  !! house,  sir  Henry  Campbell-Bannerman.  II The subject under consideration  was the  li government's  Soutli African   policy, and  the meeting resolved to support the government on* the reassembling of parliament even at the expense of placing tlie  present official leaders of the Liberal  party in conflict with tlieir former colleagues, sir William Hareourt and Mr.  .John Morley.  Gavin  Brown     Clark,   Liberal    member    of    parliament   for   Caithncsshirc,  who telegraphed to Pretoria portions   of  the   speech   delivered last  Saturday   at  Manchester by the lord president  of the  council, the  duke  of Devonshire, which  Mr.   Clark   thought   an   opening   for a  peacific settlement, has   received the following reply from  Pretoria   under  date  of   October 3rd:    "The   government   of  the South African Republic arc gratified  to learn that powerful  influence's  are at  work-to   seen re  a   peaceful  settlement.  Considering,   however,   the   manner   in  wliich tlieir five-year franchise proposals  worn' rejected, after the government had  every reason to believe that these would  be accepted, considering also the abandonment of the joint commission proposed  by Great Britain, as well as the  declaration that the British government regarded   all   former   proposals   as   abandoned  and   are   formulating    fresh   proposals,,  tlie government of the South African Republic do not feel  at liberty  themselves  to reformulate the rejected proposals.    If  the desire for peace be earnest.aud sincere, an excellent opening is afforded by  the Transvaal's acceptance  of  the-joint  commission,   a    proposition    emanating  from the  British   government,  which   if  carried  out would undoubtedly bring  a  satisfactory- and  honorable settlement."  A special despatch from Johannesburg  says that the Boer officials tliere continue  to urge the British subjects  who  remain  to leave at once, and ib  is  believed  that  all who do not will be marched under escort along  the  railway  until  a train is  reached to carry them off.  Orders have been issued from Pretoria  closing all the saloons in the gold fields.

In  the Law Courts at Victoria.  Special lo the Tribune.  Victoria,  October   1.���Though  grand  juries from time  immemorial have  tendered  advice  on  public   matters  of  all  kinds, there   is  no  local   record  of the  slightest official attention being paid   to  their  presentiments.    Therefore  at the  assizes today, "when judge  Walkem  sug:  gested the   customary presentment and  instanced the Bings murder as a subject  for  comment, foreman   Tlirschcll  Goheii  replied that they had come  to the  conclusion that  to  prepare  a  presentment  ���would be simply wasting time and therefore  would  offer   none.      A   discussion  took place on the Nichol libel ease, which  the counsel for the defendant held should  not be called this assize as it was ordered  to   be   held    before,  the chief   justice,  while  Walkem  was  now presiding.    It  was decided,' however,  that a reference  to the chief justice was made  under the  impression that he would  take  the  present "assize  and  that  tho case may be  called if desired.    Chief  interest  centers  in the Trent River bridge- case, in which  the crown  proceeds  against the Union  Colliery Company, for alleged negligence  in causing the deaths of those  who  perished by a  train  crashing  through the  bridge.    In the preliminary  argument it  was brought out that as  the defendants  .are a corporation no punishment  other  than a fine can be 'awarded  if the  case  goes .against them.-..'���        v '"  GREAT STRIKE IN GOAL MINES  TRADE AND COMMERCE.

VaiiuoHver Province.  The Tribune is firmly opposed, to the  adoption of a "wide open" policy in Nelson, very, wisely remarking that "one  honest laboring man and his family are  worth more to a town than a dozen tinhorn gamblers and sure-thing fakirs." It  is surely a gross insult to the people of  any city or town to tell them that they  must allow gambling and other vices wide  license iu oi'der to attract population.  There can be no true prosperity built on  any such basis.  *^^E"^<3n'wy"^ICu6w?i" '^Hem^^a^aBi^.;  ''���'��� ''Ofleyliiyi'ilif^ ���*t_yy*I;jii��_i  ; j-irfts'K)^vy*bi:.iS.li'e"<ft  "Cut-:  .Ktivft-  New York, October 4.���Referring to  yesterday's yacht race the Tribune says  editorially : Sir Thomas Lipton has had  the pleasure of bringing over a yacht to  America that has done better in sailing a  light Aveather race against a cup defender  than any racer that ever A'isited our  shore. Columbia is practically the offspring of tlie former defender and the  latter boat has systematically beaten the  far-famed racing machine of.'ISOS.  Columbia is an exceedingly fast boat.  Yesterday the challenger sailed almost  a full thirty.mile course against Columbia and finished ahead. The mere fact  that Shamrock was able to hold Columbia  all day in the: defender's oavu Avind  should call forth the heartiest congratulations to the owner and designer ofthe  boat and to the Royal Ulster Yacht Club,  Avhose representative she is. Shamrock  is a Avon derf ul vessel. Too much stress  will not be placed on the fact that in the  alternation of .luck she happened to  finish first. Luck varied greatly yesterday.  The real cause of the congratulation  Avhich is here extended sir Thomas Lip-  ton is that he sailed all day On practicaliy  even terms ..against the yacht that Americans have been led to regard as almost  invincible in light airs. Yesterday's race  on a " Columbia " day. is sufficient proof,  therefore, that Shamrock has a brilliant--  future before her. She may not take the  cup but she Avill certainly come nearer to  capturing it than has any other challenger.  The Sun says : "As to Avhere AA'e are  on the sea knoAviug ones, must differ.  That Columbia held her oavu iu reaching  had been expected. On'.wind times and,  AA'e should say at times when the boats  appeared to be sailing under like conditions, Columbia distanced her rival, so  that for the greater part of the beat  home, Avhile tliere Avas any . wind .worth  speaking of, Columbia had the lead. On  the other hand, Shamrock now and again  movedup in  a  manner  to  perplex  the  THE FAMOUS BOSUN WILL AGAIN  Commence Shipping Ore.

Sir  Thomas  Lipton  says  he  wants  a good  breeze, howeArer,  so   that   the   relatiA'e  speed of tho defender and challenger can  be  thoroughly demonstrated.     He   had  just  returned  from  a visit to Shamrock  late this afternoon Avhen seen by the Associated     Press      representative.       Sir  Thomas spoke about his sail on the grand  old  schooner  yacht, America, "the boat  that caused  all  the  trouble,"  to  quote  him exactly.     He says he had a splendid  sail around the bay for about tAvo hours  and that from  the  speed  the  old  boat  made in  the  still' soutliAvesterly breeze,  he did not wonder that she had " lifted  the cup  on  the  other  side nearly  fifty  years ago.  Sir Thomas has received hundreds of  cablegrams today from all parts of the  Avorld congratulating him on the splendid  showing his boat made in the light air  against the defender. "Some of the  cables," he said, "are from people I do  not know personally, but that only goes  to shoAv Avhat great interest is being  taken.in these races. One of them read  thus: 'Tommy don't make room for  your uncle,' which you "will probably recognize on account of its similarity to  the old English song."  Speaking about the manner in wliich  the course aviis kept clear, sir Thomas  said : " I cannot get over tlie great organization that has been here to keep the  Avay clear. Yesterday's course AA'as the  clearest we ever hadVor I ever saw iii  England."  "I may as avcII say noAAr.that Shamrock  is the fastest boat eA'er built iu Britain  and the AA'orkmanship was the best that  money could buy. I cannot tell what her  cost Avas, but it is probably more than  you have any idea of. She cost as much  as six-Valkyries.- The estimates already  given are away aboA'e the mark.

The city Avill be given the use of  the site for thirty days, and if tlie garb'  age ground is not too great a nuisance  the privilege will be extended. There  are no residents Ayithin a fj.uarter of a  mile f rohi the site.  The local telephone company will be  alla-tyed to have its Avay in the matter of  erecting telephone poles and stringing  wires on Baker street. A special committee of the city council Avas appointed  for the purpose of ascertaining Avhether  the company could not be induced to  string the Baker street Avires in the alley-  AArays, but the telephone company raised  all manner of objections, and as a result  the iietAvork of Avires will go up on Baker  street.  It is reported that the residents of the  Chinese quarter 'have.reciuested the Canadian Pacific raihA'ay authorities to provide them Avith a uoav location. Their  desire is to get away from the seAVage  Avhich is being distributed along the lake  front. For some time.past; the pipe Avhich  conveys the sewage into deep water lias  been stopped up, and the sewage is discharging from the manhole on the bank  beloAv the railway siding.

The welding of any  one class into a political party usually  defeats its own object by causing the opposing class to combine also. Let labor  profit by the fate of tlie Patrons of Industry. Independent action is one tiling,  tlie formation of a -party is another. The  labor vote is big enough to get Avhat it  Avants from the politicians, but is not big  enough to form a successful political  party-  Men Who Mean Business.  Ex-senator Warner Miller of Ncav  York and party are in the Slocan.  Through Percy Dickinson of Slocan City,  Mr. Miller and hisjassociates have bonded,  among their properties in the same locality, the Mogul group of three claims  in the proximity of the Molly Gibson, on  .which is a fine showing of clean ore. The  bond is for .$30,000, with-' a* ten per cent  payment .down, the balance being spread  over one year. Work on this group, as  on the other properties ��� .-bonded by the  same firm, commences at buce and Avill be  continued through the Avinter. Mr. Miller's associated capital has upwards of  $100,000 ���"��� worth of investments in the  Kootenay district north .of Nelson, of  which'the Slocan has a fair share.

It seems that when he lived in Colorado,  Mr. Cotton made speculations that did  nob turn out well. All the facts' wore"  published live years ago, when Mr. Cotton  Wiis in trouble with a  man named  J. * '  _   A" Manly Utterance.  On behalf of the French-Canadians La  Presse, the most influential French  journal of .Quebec, has made a spirited'  but moderate and manly, reply to such  Ontario journals as tlio Toronto News  and the Hamilton Spectator, which accuse  the French-Canadians of disloyalty to  Britain and of cherishing hopes of a  French- republic on -the St. Lawrence.  We iind in the Stratford Beacon the following translation of some of La Pressc's  remarks, which Ave should like to see reprinted in every ncAvspaper in Ontario :  "Our allegiance to the English cioavii  is as natural as the air aa'o breathe, because avo are borne in it. Wc see nothing in this respect Avhich distinguishes us  from our English fellow-citizens. Naturally Ave do not deny that our ancestry is  of French origin. For there is nothing  to be ashamed of in it, and if we a. ere  ashamed the true Englishman Avould  despise us. AVe strive to make our  French-Canadian nationality more manly  in its spirit and its method of work. Is  _thero_anything_evii-in-that?���It-is- tJm.s-  that avo bring to Canada nn clement of  lively originality which does not-  hinder its progressive march, Avhich  does not harm any one, but Avliieh works  without prejudice and Avithout fee for  the common good. We usurp no position,  not even tliat of first minister, for we  haA'e not given -sir Wilfrid that position.  There arc other people that have given it  to him of their own free Avill. Certainly,  avc love France deeply, our ancient mother  hind, but avo have no longer any friends  there, avo have no relations there, and of  all the glorious principles and ideas of  Franco we adopt but few. None of these  things hinder us from giving Avithout  (jue.stion, our loyalty to England."  Cigar Makers Want More Protection.

A Passenger's Story of the Wreck,  William Gray of Gait, Ontario, Avas on  the Avreeked steamship Scotsman, fie  saved nothing from the Avreck except a  field glass, an overcoat,-and the clothes ou  his back. He states that the first intimation he had of danger Avas a series of  great bumps, accompanied by a sound as  of Avater gurgling and rushing into the  vessel. The alarm spread Avith great rapidity, and- soon all hands -were up and  on deck. Tlie night was as dark as Erebus, and the air wna bitterly cold.    As \  soon as possible the officers began to lower  tlie boat sand transfer the Avomon to them.  Many had life preservers on, but some  were clad simply iu nightshirts. When  tlie boat Avhicli SAvanipcd aa'iis lowered  it filled at once, and the people in it  floated off like corks. Some of them  were paralyzed Avith fear and died  Avithout a struggle. Some Avere Jiauled  back by the head, and others Avere more  or less damaged by the necessarily rough  treatment in hauling them in again. Mr.  Gray says that the stokers and greasers  acted like fiends. Almost immediately  after the accident, and when the passengers Avere all in a state of groat  excitement, the stokers began to pillage  the state rooms. They to.ik possession  of everything, and their language and  conduct towards the ladies were simply  i ideseribable. Many of them haA'e gone  back to England, but instructions Avill be  cabled to have everyone of them searched  on tlieir arrival at Liverpool. Mr. Gray  Avas in the first party Avhich AAralked oArer  from the wreck to the lighthouse, a  distance of seven miles or so. The  journey Avas over the roughest sort of  country, rocky at places and at others  soft and marshy, tlie travellers sinking  to their knees in soft moss and native  heather. One night Avas spent at the  lighthouse, and next day the party returned to the ship. On the third day another visit AA-as made to the lighthouse,  and shortly afterwards tlie Montfort Avas  ..sighted. The captain of this steamer, on  the Aroyago up the Gulf in the dense fog,  acted Avitli extreme caution, stopping the  boat at frequent 'intervals to take soundings. Fuel at the scene of the Avreck Avas  entirely absent. cThcre was hot as much  as a sliver of Avood, but after a Avhile  some coal AA'as obtained from the bunkers  and it was used for the making of tea and  coffee Mr. Gray Avas among those robbed  by tlie stokers.

It wtis at 'Manila, a day or two before  tho famous ��� .colloquy between- admiral  S'ou Diediichs and the British captain  of tlie cruiser Iniinortalite, in which the  former asked what attitude the latter  would assume in case trouble arose  between the Germans and the Americans,  Chichester replying that information on  that point could best be obtained from  Dewey. On this occasion Dewey was  dining with Chichester, and over the nuts  and wine they got swapping stories. The  host expressed his admiration of the confidence of victory exhibited by the Yankee sailors, and his guest replied that  there might be too much confidence in  one's ability to win a .fight. The Englishmen did not see how that could be,  and Dowcy proceeded to illustrate his  remark with a little antidote. Said he :  "An old friend of my grandfather's up  in Vermont lent some help to his country's cause in the war of 1S12 by fitting  out a fine privateer. He took command  of her himself, having had- some experience iu sailoring and'called her the New  Jerusalem. She was a smart little barken Line and mounted six twelve-pounders  and a sixteen-pound ph-ot gun forward.  In the course of the first voyage she took  two or three prizes of no great value,  and two months or so elapsed before she  got a whack-at. something really worth  capturing.- ���       *-  "ft was on-a foggy morning, in-the re-  * gion of tho tropics,,olie wind having died"  " down to ti mere catspaw, that she sighted  tlieroyals and gallant stuns'Is of a huge  1 merchantman  carrying  the British flag.  It was a spectacle to make any piratical  person's mouth water.    Tho privateer, being to windward,  crept up to the prey,  herself unobserved in tho mist, and presently hove to within half a cable's leiigth  of her.  " 'Heave to, or I'll sink you,' yelled my  grandfather's friend, thinking gloatingly  of the silks and laces, with who knows  what other spoil, he was going to take  back to Vermont.  " There wtis no reply, and just then a  puff of wind blew away some of the fog,  revealing  instead  of a  merchantman, a  That room of yours needs  "freshening up" for the winter months.

"' I was about to say,' shouted the  commander of the privateer, ' that, while  inviting you to surrender, in case you  don't want to do so, I will.'  "And ho did," said Dewey. "Which  will serve to illustrate my meaning when  I say that too much confidence in warfare i-s not always a good thing. Your  very good health, Chichester."  o    Australia's Great Eleven.  The tenth Australian eleven brought  its tour to a close by defeating a south of  England team which was almost representative of all England in its strength'.������For  about' four months the antipodeans have  been measuring.. their strength' against  various teams in England, and after  thirty-five engagements they can show a  record of 1(3 wins, 10 draws and 3 defeats. From these figures it will be  readily understood that the colonial band  of 1899 was a terribly hard side to beat.  This was the . keynote of the tour, and,  as was only fitting, they gave in the last  engagement a splendid exhibition of those  qualities which they possessed in a higher  degree than any previous team from  Australia.  Teams including far more remarkable  batsmen and more distinctively greater  bowlers have left Australia, but no band  of players who were really so difficult to  evercome as this eleven of 1899; They can  claim the great distinction of having lost  fewer matches than any previous band of  cricketers from the colonies, and to them  also belongs the questionable distinction  ���of having left more games unfinished���-  since the tours Avere restricted to eleven  a side matches���than any team except  that unsatisfactory set of men led by  H. J. H. Scott in 1SSG. These records  show the greatness and tho shortcomings  of the men. No matter how hopeless the  game appeared they were never beaten  until the winuing hit had been made and  the last wicket had gone down. In the  last game of the tour against the South  of England, and in the return encounter  against Marylebone, this eleven demonstrated the qualities of pluck and determination most successfully, for after having much the worst of the opening stages  of the contest they pulled out of the  game aud in each case finished with a  handsome victory.  Brilliant as these achievements were,  they will probably be forgotten before  the performances which saved the Australians from defeat in three out of the  five test matches. At Leeds, after being  nine runs behind, with five wickets down  in their second inning, they set England  177 runs to win. At Manchester, following on with 175 in arrears, they closed  their inning when 170 ahead, witli three  FULL LINE OF  FOR SALE  BUSINESS AND RESIDENTIAL  PROPERTY  30 by  120, Baker street, between Josophino  and  Ward streets .$8000  50 by 120, Bakor stroet, between Josophino and Hall  ���s'trools, corner..'.' -....'..'.<..'..-. ....'.   25 by 120 with improvements, south side of Vernon  stroot '.  15000  50 by 120 with improvements, south side of Vernon   -  street  6000  2J lols with cottage rented at 315 per month, Victoria   '  street  3500  2 lots with cottage rented at ��20 por month, Stanloy  street   3000  G lots in block 1W, all cleared and fenced in  2500  AOENTS FOR  ' ���  J. & J.

Avickets still in hand,  while at the Oval,  where they  again   followed   on 221 rims  behind, they left off "40 runs to the good,  with   five   wickets  to  fall.    These  Avere  some of the  great triumphs of the Australian team of 189!).    Their great object  was, of course, to  win  the rubber with  England, and  iuasmnch as  they gained  a great triumph  iu  the one test match  which  AA*as  brought   to a  definite  conclusion    they   are     entitled     to    claim  superiority.    Beyond  all  question, they  demstrated clearly that it Avas impossible  to  beat  them  in  three days on a really  good   Avickot.      The    greatness   of   the  colonial side Avas  proved  not only in its  practical immunity from defeat, but also,  and perhaps iii a  more striking manner,  by the splendid Avay in Avhich  it  played  up Avhen most was demanded of it in tho  last games.    Even Avhen they fared, badly  for  a time  they  always retrieved their  ground, Avhilo some of their predecessors,  most  brilliant if less determined, failed  at  times  upon  the  most important occasions.     Not a   single member  of  the  team has been a  failure, and  in   beating  All England decisively on a hard Avicket,  as  they did  at Leeds, the colonial team  accomplished  a feat  which  no pi-evioris  band  of cricketers from Australia could  claim.

The fines and costs, together  with the assessment for damages, amounted all told to $:il.  The city clerk is collecting all the  arrears owing to the corporation which  can be recovered under any known process. The arreas under the head of water  rates is considerable, some consumers being in arrears for the entire year. The  clerk now proposes to give notice to all  in arrears for more than six months that if  the said arrears are not paid on or before  a given date that the amount of the arrears will bo recovered by distress without any legal preliminaries.  An English gentleman who, being a.  large landed proprietor in the old country and somewhat of an amateur architect, was passing through Nelson yesterday was much struck with the manner in wliich sonic of the residences here  are built. Noting in particular the  Roman Catholic church, he asked if the  columns in the interior and western portico were made in the States or Eastern  Canada, "lie was, surprised to learn that  they were of local manufacture.  The Independent Order of Foresters  yesterday paid this.widow of AVilliam  Hodson $1000, being the .amount the deceased had insured his life for in that  society.  A lady in Fire Valley wrote toa Nelson  merchant as follows: "1 read your advertisement in Thi*i AVi-'Uki.v Thihunk.
