London, October 0.���Sir Henry Camp-  bell-Banncrnian, speaking at Maidstone  today at a. luncheon especially arranged  to give the leader of the Opposition in  tlie House of Commons an opportunity  of expressing the view of official Liberalism in regard to the Transvaal crisis, said  that the door had not been shut upon  further negotiations.  "Great Britain," ho continued, "lias not  made her demands as a sir/erain power  but in virtue of international law, and as  tlie power responsible for tiie well being  ot South Africa. if the Boer government has refused the reasonable requests  contained in the dispatch of the secretary  of state for the colonies on September  Stli, through fear and suspicion regarding a possible attack upon tlieir independence, the speeches of the duke=of  Devonshire and sir Matthew White Ridley, constitute assurances which ought  to extinguish suspicion and fear.  These speeches are quite as authoritative as any dispatches and bind the  honor of the government  and  the conn-  O  try. Tliey ought to open the way to an  agreement. Party interests must stand  aside at this "juncture, as Avell as the  reputation of the ministers, f do not  believe that diplomacy has said its last  word, although the country is on tlie  brink of Avar. It is a remarkable  thing that when tlie question is  asked, what are we going to war about,  no answer can be given. This country  has never yet gone into a great War in .  such a state of uncertainty. From  patriotic motives Liberals cannot and  should not embarrass tlio government,  but the time for free speaking will come  bye and bye. At present common interest aro at stake: reputation of ministers and our estimate of the- conduct of  the government must all stand aside  as the only thing that matters is  . this question of peace or war."  Pointing out the absurdity of'going into a war for a 'difference of two years in  the opposing franchise proposals, sir  Henry Canipboll-Baunerman declared  that the claim of suzerainty had been  finally exploded by sir William Vernon  Harccuft aud sir Edward Clark.  "It  was  an  evil   day," he  continued,  "wli.n this claim was dug from the grave  :   in wliich it  was   decently buried in ISS-t  bythe  wise. and.: experienced men  who  then "conducted  British alVairs���-the men  ��� who buried  it because they knew it was  devoid of efficacy and  a fruitless source  ��� li'oft difficulty-."���=": S^elleye. ^tl'ie^*(MiBtJi*y��has  wf-pSj.^Ms-M^jj W".-*fAV.

As to the justice of the wai1, Mr. Hammond did not wish to express* an opinion;  but when asked, whether the war would  be a short or a loiig one, said: "It will  be a short war, ending with the capture of Pretoria after which the  Boers will recognize the futility  of further fighting. The Boers today  ��� are not as formidable -lighters...as they  were fifteen years ago ; for exam pie, their  former enormous advantage in marksmanship over the British troops no  longer exists because game has considerably disappeared, Tlie Boers now liave  little experience in shooting at moving  objects. A few old doppers are still good  shots, but they are fast dying out. Moreover the British Lee-Metford rifle, with  its " remarkably flat trajectory, puts  Tommy Atkins quite on an equality with  the Boers so far as inarkniauship is concerned."  "Quasi friends of the Boers," continued Mr. Hammond, "deluded them  into the belief that Great Britain would  not resort to war in any event, and unfortunately thereby provoked a.spirit of  opposition to the British demands, resulting in the present diplomatic, im-  pass, which I fear makes Avar inevitable. Encouraged by the present  Aveakness of the British gari'ison  the Boers evidently hope to occupy  strategic positions, and by rapidly assuming the offensive to forestall the British  army."

It is stated that right  honorable-Harry Escomb, former premier  of Natal, is going to Pretoria in the interest of peace.  SHORT BITS OF NELSON NEWS.  Dilwell Davenport of San Francisco is  now at Avork upon the readjustment of  the fire-insurance r.ites in Nelson. He  will probably complete the Avork this  evening. The .., impression is gaining  ground that the readjustment Avill not  effect so inucli in the way of a reduction  in the rates as most of the local agents  expected, but nothing definite Avill be  known until the report is returned from  Vancouver.  Major-general Hutton, commanding the  forces in Canada, aiid lieutenant-colonel  Peters?, D.O.C. of Victoria, are expected  to arrive iii Nelson on the 20th instant  t> inspect the Nelson, company of  Kootenay Rifles. -.

Notably, the con-  A'ention stands by the eight-hour law.  Tlie only pjint of serious dispute  among the delegates Avas the proposed  division of provincial parties upon Federal party lines, Avhich the Avhole of the  Victoria delegation had been instructed  to oppose, and Avhich Robert Green,  M.P.P., of Kaslo, and the Kamloops delegates also protested against. All, however, had voted to abide by the decision  of the majority,.which in this case was  for the reaffirming of last year's resolution. The convention Avas AArell attended,  some 140 delegates being present.  Tlie platform as adopted is a fearful  and Avonderful production, slipshod and  i-ambling. After reciting the cardinal  virtue's attributed to Conservativisnl it  proceeds to confirm last years resolution :  "That in the opinion of this coiwentiou  it is desirable that the Liberal-Conservative party should, as a party, take part in  provincial elections for the purpose of  ensuring the government and legislation  of this province on Liberal-Conserv.atiAre  principles; and,in oi'der to carry this into  effect tit tlie next general election for the  province, that candidates be invited' to  stand for such constituents as are likely  to return Liberal-Conservative members  pledged to primarily support a Liberal-  Conservative government asdistinguished  from a government composed of Liberals  or partly, of Liberal-Conservatives and  partly of Liberals."  The details of what the ConserA**ativcs  intend to do for tho pro\-ince aro then  given including these most interesting  features.  To provide an efficient system for the  settlement of disputes between capital  and labor.  To.adopt the principle of the government ownership of railways se far as  the circumstances will admit, and the  adoption of the principle that no bonus  should be granted to any railway corporation Avhicli does not give, the government of tlie province control of the rates  oArer the lines bonused, together Avith the  ojition pf purchasing.  To actively assist by state aid the development of the agricultural reserves of  the province.  To make the London agency of British  Columbia more effective.  In the interest of labor the Liberal-  Conservative party sympathizes Avith  and endorses the principle of the eight-  hour law.  To actively, support the advancement  of the mining interests of British Columbia.  To aid iu tlie immigration of domestic  servants. The object of this is to displace Chinese house-boys, and in this connection the conA'eution in conclusion  viewed with alarm: "The introduction  of large numbers of indigent aliens into  the Dominion to compete Avith our own  people iu the field of laboi", aud regrets  that the federal administration has  failed to introduce legislation respecting  Chinese immigration'which Avas pledged  to the people of the province by the present prime minster."  ConseiwatiA'e party loyal support in federal affairs, it declines to take any course  or endorse any line of action that may  lead to a rupture between it and tlie  friends with whom it has worked Avith  the single object of promoting the cause  of good government. The delegates  from Victoria were E. G. Prior, Thomas  Earl, M.P., D. M.cEberts,"II. D. Ilehncken  and G. McPhillips, the present representative of the city in the legislature; 0. F.

Tiie agreement  Avas submitted to the British foreign  office about six Aveeks ago for ratification, Avithout which it would not be operative.

The Transvaal trouble has eclipsed the  Dreyfus ease ; and though the international yacht race has caused a temporary lull in the excitement, the duel  between Joe Chamberlain and Paul  Kruger is the all absorbing topic of the  hour.  Readers of 'The Tin hunk have to  gather their news from the Associated  Press telegrams, and the manner in which  names of the different places in South  Africa are sprung upon one, aie perplexing to anyone who is not personally  acquainted with that country. It is almost impossible Avithout a map to follow  the various movements of troops. The  ordinary reader, who reads in the morning paper that the ."7th Hussars have arrived at the Cape", immediately supposes  that the regiment has reached the place  whore hostilities might break out. By  tlie word Cape is usually understood Capetown, the capital of Cape Colony. Port  Natal, (or Durban), the nearest port to  the Transvaal border, is over S00 miles  from Capetown by sea.and the Tiansvaal  border is over 300 miles by land from  Durban.  Perhaps the difficulty chiefly lies in not  understanding the geographical position  of the pSouth African colonies, in the  first place it must be remembered that  these colonies have a total area of some  300,000 square miles, about 83,000 less  than the area of British Columbia. These  colonies are the Cape of Good Hope, or  Capo Colony, Natal and Basutoland.  Bechuanaland and the territories of the  British Soutli Africa Company are not  colonies, but under the British protectorate. The first among the colonies in  wealth'' and importance is Cape Colony,  which covers the southern portion of the  continent from ocean to ocean and contains  an area of 277,151 square miles.

The Boers protested and finally fought for  their indepeiidance. After the disaster ,  of Majuba in .1881 Great Britain agiuii  reeogniv.ed their independanee, but, by  the 'convention of 1884, retained the '  power of vetoeing any treaty Avhich the  republic might make with any foreign  power save the Orange Free State,  The largest  town in  the Transvaal  is  Johannesburg Avhich  is  about  25 miles  distance' from Pretoria* the capital.    The  southern boundary is delineated by the  A^aal river, a branch of the Orange river,  which  is crossed   in certain   places by  "drifts" or fords.    Maf eking is situated  in British Bechuanaland, near  the western frontier of the Transvaal, and AVas  formerly  the terminus of   tlie railway  from CapetoAvu.

They profess to be Avilling to sacrifice an  interest Avhicli cost them, nothing in order  to staiAre out the members of labor unions.  It Avould be interesting to knoAV whether  the men whose Iioldings cost them something Avill saciifice tiicm to gratify tiie  spleen    of   tlieir promoting   managers.  They may recognize the fact that it Avill  be impossible to cut wages in the Slocan  when wages for all  classes  of labor are  steadily advancing all over the continent.  When   the   contractors   for   the Rainy  River raihvay are obliged  to pay $2.!50*  per day for ordinary laborers, tlie Slocan  shareholders, who paid, lor  their .stock  and  expect  tor realize something on it,  mayturn cIoavii managers Avho prefer to  stop: work  rather   than   pay  .153.50  for  skilled miners.    Tliey will recognize that  the advance in wages all over  the continent is due to the uniform industrial revival.   They should knoAV that au industrial revival Avill maintain^ if not ad-*  vance, the value of the lead  and  silver  products   of. the   Slocan mines.     They  should know tliat" it ,avi11 pay them better  to AVork and-market their ore while business is good than it will during a  period  of   depression.       Industrial    depression  Avill furnish cheap labor, but cheap labor  will mean cheap lead  and  cheap  silver.  Fifty cents per day to  skilled miners  will mean  a great deal  less to Slocan  shareholders than   one or  two cents  a  pound clipped off the price of lead,  or a  fall of three or four  cents  in  the  price  of silver. None but fools Avill expect cheap  -labor���Avithout-cheap-leall-siTul-cheap  silver.  The mine managers threaten to close  down every metalliferous mine in the  province. We believe the Criminal Code  of Canada contain., a section that av ill, if  made operative, stop any such action.  The attorney-general might bring the  members of the Slocan Silver-Lead Mines  Association and of the Nelson District  IHiiic Owner.-' Association up Avith a  round turn by arresting them on tlie  charge of conspiracy. A little good  Canadian law would do some of these  foreign gentry good.  C. P. R. Machinists on Strike.  The machinists employed in the Canadian Pacific  Railway shops,   from   Fort  William to VancouA'er, are on strike.   The  strike is the  result  of   a  movement, by  Avhich the machinists wish to have their  order���the International Association  of  Machinists  of   America���recognized   by  the   railway   company.     The   delegates  met at Winnipeg for  several days, but  could  come to no  agreement Avith  the  company,  and  the  strike  was  ordered.  W. McLean of VancouA'er, A'iee-prcsident  of the union, stated the case for the men  as follows : "What we want may bo summed up under three heads: (1) recognition  of   our   union;   (2)   establishment   of  a  minimum  Avage  clause,  and (.'5) increase  of   the   allowance   made   for   overtime.  The   members have  come  to Winnipeg  from points all the Avay from Fort Wil-  li.am to Vancouver, and on arriving here  the manager of the company  refused   to  see them, thus failing  to  reeogni/.o  the  union.    We arc also taking advantage of  the busy season of the year to press our  demands, as we feel  that they  are perfectly ";just, and  that the  company has  had ample  time  to  consider them  and  procure any information as to the rates  paid on other i-oads.    The minimum AA'age  asked for is:    From Brandon to Fort William, 25 cents per hour; from Laggan to  Brandon, 27|-cents  per hour,  and from  Vancouver to Laggan, 80 cents.    I might  say that this schedule is Arery reasonable  and considerably loAver than the rate of  wages on either the Northern  Pticific  or  the Great Northern railways."    It  is reported at Vancouver that the engineers  and apprentices, all in  fact, beloAv  the  first and second engineers, on the Empress  of India, uoav at Vancouver, Avill join the  strike, and that the Empress aviII  not be  able to sail on Monday next.  American {Versus Australian Canned Meat.  Brjsijanj".

As a matter of fact, the  Queensland canuers, anticipating, a'large  demand, had prepared, 'increased stocks,  which.;'will now possibly be a drug on  their hands.  Comes Early This Year.

SAVINGS BANK BRANCH.  .     CURRENT RATB OF INTEREST PAID  NO EXPRESSION IN THE EYE.  There are no'expressive eyes. The expression of the eye is really in the lid.  Tlie eye itself, independent of its surroundings, has no more expression than  has. a glass marble. A prominent English oculist makes this daring statement,  and he defends liis position with emphasis. "Tlie eyes have no expression  whatever," he says. " How do yon explain the.fact that the eyes of one person  tire more expressive than another? They  are not. The -difference consists in certain nervous contractions of the lids peculiar to the individual.  "Observe for yourself, and you will  see that I am right. We "will say that I  am greatly interested iu something, and  my attention is suddenly called from it  by an unexpected interruption. My  upper eyelid raises itself just a little, but  the eye proper does not change an iota  in appearance. If the iiiterruption is but  momentary, the elevation of the lid will  be but momentary. If the surprise  caused by an interruption is continued,  the lid may be raised even .a little more,  and, in fact, the whole of the forehead,  including the eyebrows, is raised and  wrinkled; but the.eyereina.ins the same.  ".When' a person is excited much the  same emotions are gone through," con-  piuued the doctor.

Toronto, October 0.���The latest complaint received here from Dawson City is  that Canada is rapidly losing the Yukon-  trade and   that Americans   control- the  business   of  Dawson.     A Toronto man  writing from the Klondike says  that  of  400 merchants doing business in Dawson  today not six  are  Canadians.    All  the  others are from the United States.    The.  great food  supply is  in  the   shape   of  canned goods, and the Canadian article is  not much seen, as compared  with the  Chicago product.     The Canadian reports  of tlie latest Yukon grieArance are frank  enough to admit that it is  largely Cau-  ada'sownfaulfcif sheis losingher hold upon  the business of supplying the Klondike  country. Even in the quality of the butter  tliat is being shipped to Dawson, Canada  is said to be  doing -much  to injure  her  reputation as  a  great agricultural  and  dairy country.    It is uniformly bad  and  brings only. $1  for  two pounds   while  American  butter brings  $1.75   for two  pound   lots.      The    correspondent   who  makes these complaints points out that  tliere are visitors fiom all over the world  at Dawson. They naturally expect to  get everything in the dairy line there  from Canada, but when they are told  that the butter they are eating is American and that the Canadian article is not  fit for the table, these people are likely  to advertise the United States and American products abroad, on their return  home to Europe or elsewhere, to the  great disadvantage of Canada. Hence  the prevailing complaint. o---.-.  No Rough Play.  No rough play occurred during the first  game between the New Westminster and  Toronto, lacrosse teams, says the Vancouver Province, .and "Chub" Quigley as  referee did not even -warn, any of the  players. Tliat. tliis unusual gentleness  was entirely due to the New Westminster  team is perhaps open to doubt, especially  on the part of such of the ��� ..Vancouver  players who saw the ..match. The Toronto  men indulged in no heaA'y body work,  and looked, especially at the start, as  though they were afraid of their heavier  opponents. A witty spectator remarked:  "You would think they had an idea that  the wild woolly westerns all had tomahawks concealed iu their suits," and  there    certainly    seemed    to   be   some  FULL LINE OF  FOR SALE  BUSINESS AND RESIDENTIAL  PROPERTY  30 by 120, Haker  street, between  Josephine and  Ward streets.... v..:....

Towards the end of the match  tho visitors weakened perceptibly, and  one of their foremost pl.-iyers remarked  to the Province representative that it  w.-is not altogether a matter of strange  sticks, and that he thought they were up  against a better team. However, they  are not discouraged, and in tomorrow's  game they promise to make a supreme  effort to reverse the score. They wjll  then be in better condition and will be  provided with their own sticks. That  they will make a closer game of it is conceded, but not .a man, woman or child in  New Westminster Avill admit tliat they  have a ghost of a chance to win out���  and they didn't, for they were defeated  in the second game by a score of 7 to .'���".

Yet so  great has been the demand for these goods, we have  found it necessary to wire for another car, which will  reach Nelson this week. We would ask the citizens  of Nelson to continue in showing their appreciation of  our efforts to give them the opportunity of enjoying  the luxurious furnishings of an eastern home in the  midst of the Rockies.  #  *  <���$  B  Headquapters for Miners and Prospectors  THE BEST BRANDS OF  and  Cigars  ALWAYS ON HAND|  One  of the best and most popular hotels in Nelson.

Tho Spokane Northern Telegraph Company opened its ollico in Grand Forks  yesterday, and met the Canadian Pacific  company's cut in rates. It is understood  that the two companies agreed in the  first instance that tlie rate from Nelson  to Grand Forks and other Boundary  points should-be 50 cents for ten word  messages with throe cents for additional  words. The .Spokane company reached  Greenwood first and put on the 50-eo'nt  rate, but the Canadian Pacific reached  Grand Forks first and cut the rate down  to 25 cents. Tlio Canadian Pacific company has not yet reached Greenwood,  but when it does tlie rate to that point  will be cut in two.  A carload of matto from the Canadian  Pacific Company's smelter at Trail went  out on the steamer. Moyie last evening  to New York.  A use has finally been found for the  big granite boulder which disfigured the  recreation grounds on Hall street. Stone  masons are now at work upon the boulder,  splitting it into stone steps for the Bank  of Montreal, the Hudson's Bay Company buildings and sills for the Land  Registry office. The Bank of Montreal  steps are the most difficult to get out as  they require to be over eight feet in  length.  One of the men who assisted in extinguishing the fire in the rear of Turner,  Beeton & Company's warehouse, early-  yesterday morning, he s��ays that for almost half an hour the chances were good  for a big fire. When first noticed it was  blazing brightly, but it failed to attract  the attention of either of the night  policemen or of night watchman. MeKinnon. If the three men who are on  duty for the purpose of detecting criminals fail to notice a fire blazing in the  . business portion of the city for close upon half an hour what chance is there of  their detecting burglars?  A second militia company is being  organized in Nelson. All those "wishing  to join can do so through lieutenant Beer  or any of the non-commissioned officers  of the existing company. Tliere will be  a company parade on Sunday to one of  the churches, and members are expected  to be at the aimory at 10:-30 o'clock  sharp.  The Nelson Saw & Planing Mills Company has secured the contract for erecting the Lawrence Hardware Company's  warehouse on the Canadian Pacific siding  between .Josephine and Hall streets. Tlie  warehouse is to be 50x75 feet and'covered  with corrugated iron It will cost when  completed $1000.,  Provincial Government Offers Rewards.  Spcrml l�� the Ti-iluiuc.  Victoria, October 0.���Stirred by the  death of Mike Powers, which made two  mysterious murders hero within two  days, the provincial authorities have  taken an action which the city council  ponuriously refused, and tonight issued  proclamations offering a reward of five  hundred dollars for apprehension of the  murderer in each case. In tho meantime  the police are inaugurating a hunt of a  most thorough description for the fiend  who killed Mrs. Bing.

Tlie Times very naturally dissents from  the Colonist's view of the relative strength  of parties in British Columbia. It claims  to have to have discovered that British  Columbia is filling up with good Liberals,  which may or may not be true, but if it  is true they are rapidly becoming Conservatives. Liberal neglect is telling  tremendously against tlie Laurier government in this province. It is disheartening those who were active supporters and is completely alienating those  who are lukewarm. The Times professes  to believe th.at Vancouver is Conservative, but it is hardly serious in this. Still  less is it serious when it professes to believe that the Liberals have any kind of  a chance in Victoria. The Liberal party  in British Columbia is afflicted with a  set of leaders who would ruin the chances  of a successful government, and are simply like so many Old Men of the Sea on  the shoulders of the Laurier cabinet.
