 Mil  If-!  SITUATION IN THE PHILIPPINES  According* to Admiral Dewey's Views.  New   Y'okk,  Sopteinbei*  .'50.��� Admiral  Dewey lias given the press tin   interview  upon the situation in tlie Philippines,   lie  takes ii   very hopeful view of  the  situation.    Me sa.il! : " l��Jver since I left the islands I htive read every thin}; that I could  obtain bearing; upon tlio islands and what  has transpired there  since   we  left.    At  the time 1 left I stud that   the insurgents  were on their last legs.    I   believed   then  tliat they would be unable  to secure  the  arms   and   nmniuniUon   without  which  they  could   not  Avage war,   but   I   have  learned   through   the   newspapers  since  that   they  have  received   the   necessary  supplies.    That must lie stopped and  the  insurgents will then be of little strength.  They   are good   soldiers,  splendid  ones,  and their powers  of endurance  aro   remarkable."  "Do you consider that the h'ilipinosare  yet capable of self-government, tit least  enough so to allowof the withdrawal of  American forces?"-'  "No; they tire not; but in time they  will be. I will say this inucli, though,  for the Filipinos. They are more capable  of governing themselves than the Cubans  are. pSome of them, 1 doubt not, are now  capable of administering affairs, but the  great majority of them have the crudest  ideas of an honest and ellicient government. Their greatest fault is this: They  don't know the meaning of the word  'honesty.' Of course, like all Malays who  have had an education, tliey are wonderfully capable of imitation and are admirable artisans when trained.  '"Aguinaldo is nothing but a figurehead.  He is of only average, intelligence and  ability. The brains are back of him. In  Manila he is held at his true worth, and  there they know who is responsible for  what success, if any, has attended the  efforts to rebel against our government.  Aguinaldo was only a clerk in the navy  yard at Manila before he took the field  against the Spanish. The men who  actually.have the most influence among  the Filipinos are a number of lawyers,  unquestionably' able men. General Lunti,  who was killed by Aguinaldo's orderly,  was the ablest insurgent general. Pate mo  I should say is the ablest of them now."  Admiral Dewey is an admirer of general Otis. In speaking of him he said:  "Generai Otis is an unusual painstaking  man, and he's not only governor-general  and directing the movements of the army  iu the field, but he's working withn might  SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER I, 1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR; WEEKLY, $2.  and twenty-one cents an hour from King  street establishments, eighteen cents from  Queen street stores and eighteen and  nineteen cents from Yongo street firms  and other houses on adjacent.side streets.  The minimum weekly wage from King  street employers is placed at $12, witli  from $10 to $11 iu the other streets.  These wages htive been paid till along by  live King street merchant tailors, but  other employers htive cut down the price  paid until it was as low tis ten cents an  hour in some places.  LEAD MAY BE SMELTED IN BOND  And Admitted Duty Free.  .Sir Henri .I'oly received a telegram  from Ottawa yesterday afternoon to the  effect that the Dominion government had  decided to ad mit free of duty into Canada  all lead, which being mined and smelted  in Canada,is refined in the United .States.  This concession -will mean a great deal to  the Hall Mines smelte-i and the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company's smelter at  Trail in their efforts to do a customs  smelting business in lead ores.  The proposition to lnwe lead, mined and  smelted in Canada, readmitted free of  ditty after being refined in the United  States was first advanced by the South  Kootenay'board of trade in March last  when ,T. J. Campbell of the Hall Mines  addressed the members of the board upon tlie question and urged that lepresen-  tations be made by the board to the  authorities at Ottawa to this end. When  he addressed the board Mr. Campbell  pointed out under the present arrangements the United States refineries took  advantage of tlie customs regulation,  which permitted the  refining  of lead  iii  IT DOES NOT PAY TO IMPORT  Men From the. East.  .  Smidon 1'ny.st.roiik.  The first imported  laborers  to arrive  in Sandon  since  the strike  commenced  came over the C. P. II."on Tuesday. There  were five in   the  party and  they were  ticketed through  from Montreal.    They  were met at the station and conducted to  the mine via tho  K. <fc S.   by  the superintendent.     When   the   officers   of   the  union    wore    informed   that   men   had  arrived from  Montreal' to  work  at the  Payne, they went up to ask tlie strangers;  if   it  was  their intention   to  take   the  place  of strikers.     Upon   learning   the  'situation the Montreal men indignantly  refused to go to work and came down tho  hill immediately, thus averting a general  walk-out by the other employees at the  mine.    They have all since found employment at other occupations, two going to  woik for the city and the others for other  companies. These men say that they were  employed    at    the    Montreal   office  of  the   Payne   company,   that   they   were  to    get   $.3   for   eight hours   or   $3.50  for ten; that they  were informed tliat'  the.   eight-hour   law   referred   to "minors," and that there  was no trouble and  no strike in the Slocan.    As the men had  tlieir fare paid and the price of their outfit advanced, the company will be about  $300 out0 on  the  transaction.    Only one  of the men understood mining.    They all  carried Winchesters, but not with any  intention of inaugurating Coeur d'Alene  methods.    This is the second consignment  imported by the Payne, but the first did  not get past Slocan lake.  xiMtl!e?if IM 'luUbhy  ,e,ouh;  outk.

Journeymen Tailors on Strike,  Toronto, September 30.���Yesterday  morning a strike of the journeymen  tailors was inaugurated and in the forenoon there was over two hundred men  and women, engaged in it, but before  night many of the employing tailors met  the demands of the strikers, and at the  present time only about half the original  number are out. To secure a uniform  and a better scale of wages and to enforce  the adoption of the union label on garments is the object of the strike. Members of the executive committee of the  union visited the employers,who refused  to accede to their . demands during  the day, and by night a majority of  the merchant tailors had come to terms.

Ciiicac.o, September 30.���American  horses will drag English ammunition  wagons and heavy artillery over the  plains of the Transvaal in tho event  Great Hritain and the Poors clash at  arms. Orders came from London by  cable yesterday to a firm of horse dealers  at the Union stockyards to buy up all the  1200-pound "gunners" the western market afforded am! make arrangements for  immediate shipment. Stress was laid  upon the fact that tho animals were  wanted for the impending Soutli African  campaign, and the commission was  marked "rush" and "imperative." The  horse market at the yards was stirred by  the news. Telegraphic orders were flashed  to breeders in Illinois, Missouri and Iowa  for reservations of choice stock, with the  expectation that the first consignment  will leave Chicago for England the latter  part of the week.  Tho specifications that must be adhered  to in the selection of the artillery horses,  dealers say, will make the filling of such  a wholesale order somewhat difficult of  accomplishment at this time. It is demanded that the animals be "full-made"  and Aveigh not less than 1200 pounds. The  prices Avhich the British government set  as a limit mnge from $110 to $125 a head.  The order for English artillery horses  revive the fears entertained by some  American breeders that the heavy and  growing European demaud for American-  bred horses presages a deterioration in  the standard of domestic breeding, because of so much choice stock leaving the  country. T.he American animal, it is  said, has in a large measure supplanted  the home-bred horse in Europe, because  of its greater speed, endurance aud  , tractability. In Austria and Germany  the horse of United States birth enjoys  the greatest popularity. England and  Prance come next in tlieir affection for  the American-bred steed,' while-Russia is  the directorate. The company has been  formed for the purpose of developing the  California and Clipper niines on Silver  mountain near New Denver. Considerable Avork AA'as performed on the California last summer under tho direction of A.  .1. Marks, which resulted in a Areryfavorable shoAving. The now company will  put a force of men to Avork oil the property at once, the Avork being done by contract. As soon as necessary preliminary  arrangements are made a block of the  company's treasury stock Avill be placed  upon the market.  SOME  LONDON  CRITICISM ON  A Commercial i&lan's Version.  A. A. Youi]g,a Seattle eoiiiniercial man,  arrived in Nelson hist evening from Cascade. He AVtis stopping tit the Grand  Central hotel, and When the alarm Avas  given, lie saw* the fire from the hotel  Avindow, It then appeared to be burning on the outside of a smaUsliack, Avhich  had been vacant for some time. In about  an hour from the time the alarm was.  sounded the greater part of tlie town had  been destroyed. Mr. Young says that  the burned portion of the toAvn Avas looked upon as the permanent portion of Cascade. During the past tAvo weeks there  had been quite an exodus from the place,  but those in the burned section had decided to remain.  Illness of G. E. Maxwell, M. P.  Vancouver, September ,30.���G. II, Maxwell has been removed from his residence  to St. Paul's hospital, Avhere a consultation Avas held at which Avere pi'esent  seyeral physicians. At one time it Avas  thought that as a last resort an operation  Avould have to be resorted to, but considering his condition it Avas decided to  postpone it. Later in -the day it AA'as  reported that the patient. was slightly  better and some hope of his ultimate re-  ; co very is uoav held out.  '��� ..'The.

The Dominion is Doing Weil.  The colleetioiis at the port of Kelson  for the mouth of Suptetnbor aggregated  :$1.',7S0.0|, being close upon $2000 iu excess of the collections of the previous  month.. The imports eutei'ed for the  mouth Avere valued at $75,*3(i,'* of Avhich  $00,111 represented the value of those  duitiibleand $I:*5,252 the value of the free  imports. The statement Of tlie exports  foi' tlie month has not yet been completed, but the value of the mineral exports  is given as .$175,248. Nearly all. of this  amount is credited to the Hall Mines,  Limited, some exceptionally heavy shipments having been made from the smelter. The value of the smelter's copper  exports is giA^en as $129,203 and that of  the silver-lead bullion shipments as $33,-  015. The other items in the mineral reports were : gold bullion, $12,81.8 ; coke,  $178 ; and coal $89. The value of exports under all other heads Avill probably  swell the total for the month to close upon $180,000. '  Delegates to the Conservative Convention.

Lon'Oon, September 30.���The publication of the full text of the last cabinet  dispatch to the Transvaal government  does not add materially to the general  knowledge ot the situation. Neither  does it give much comfort to those avIio  persist in taking a hopeful vieAV of the  matter. Indeed, the London critics of  the dispatch, avIio are friendly to the  Boers, declare that it is a final closing of  the door against peace in  South Africa.  The declaration that the British government litis not asserted any rights of  interference in the internal affairs of the  republic, other than those derived from  conventions between the tAvo countries, is  considered the pregnant clause of tlie entire dispatch.  The use of the Avord convention in the  plural is taken to mean that the government will rely on the preamble of the  convention of 1881 to make good its claim  to suzerainty.  W. T. Stead, avIio is the ablest apologist  for the Boers avc have here, declares: "In  that little letter 's'.the Avhole contnrversy  is bound up."  On the other hand, it is pointed out  that the dispatch practically pledges the  British government in respect to'the. internal independence of the Transvaal and  concedes all that the Boers have asked...as,  a'i-ea^sidei'afi^  ff^^iySffis^^  1$\^i^^^^n^^j��Sl^Mk ''ifueStiou^''  'n^i.-ri "v. ���n-_V- .->    *   '-.-JSV?'

Special to the Tribune.  Cascadr Cit.% September30.���Cascade  City AA'as visited this morning Avith a fire,  Avhich virtually Aviped  out  the business  section of the toAvn.    The fire originated  in an empty shack, and spread with great  rapidity   to   the  solid   block  of   frame  buildings on the main street.    The alarm  AA'as gi \'cn a feAv minutes to one o'clock,  and   by tAvo  o'clock  the  fire had spent  itself and six  hotels  and  soA'eral  other  buildings   AA'ere  a smouldering  heap of  ruins.     There  is  no fire department in  the town, and as soon as the alarm AA'as  sounded,    eA'eryono    took   a   hand    in  the    AA'ork    of    stiA'ing     such      effects  from the buildings  threatened as it Avas  possible to move. As the fire spread from  one building to another it was feared that  tlie  Avhole town  Avould go, and the decision AA'as hastily arrived at that it would  bo necessary to Woaa' one of the buildings  ��� up AA'ith dynamite  in order to check tlie  flames.    This  had   the  desired effect of  checking the fire, but Avas attended with  fatal results.    While the fire AA'as in progress a bartender, named Eric Arvall, had  busied himself in  dragging out of one of  the hotels  some drunken  men.    He had  just made one  trip  into the hotel Avhich  it had  been   decided  to dynamite and  had rescued one  man.    He; inade a second   trip,  into    the   building,   but   before   he   could   get   out   the   explosion  too place.    The force  of the  concussion  threAV Arvall almost to the edge  of the  sideAA'alk, biit the front end of the build- .  ing fell uppii his legs and pinned  him to  the   ground.

Expense of Railway Ballast.  'Several months ago a Kansas City  smelting company bought a. truck-load of  crushed gold ore���Avhich looks as much  like coarse yelloAV sand as anything else  ���in Mexico. Advices were received in  due course that the stuff���tAveuty tons  of it���had been "loaded up" and dispatched. Weeks passed aAvay, but the  oie did not come to hand. Finally a  station-mastci stai ted out a "tracer'* in  quest oi the cai-load oi ore, and it was  tiaced fiom its patent nnue in Mexico to  the i ail way company's goods yard at  Kansas City, wheie it had been shunted  to .i siding ueai tho lound-house, and  consigned to the keeping of the master-  mechanic. The i.uluay officials sent a  note to him, asking about the disposition  of the cai, and giving its number. Having 1 cad tho note, he tin ned it over and  uidoi sed it as follows . "The car contained sand of a bad quality. Some of it I  used in the sandboxes of the engines,  but ltw.is not sei vie cable,'so I had it  scatteied along the pctmanent way."  Shoitly aftei this the lailAA'ay authorities  found themselves constiamed to indemnify the smelting company for the "bad  "and" at the late oi one hundred and  eight j- dollai s pei ton  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  m  #  ���;��S <8r.*"sC.��"^ <K^"s-��.*"sr.

"Well,"  replied the archbishop, "it is diiliculb to  say what it is. Here, however, is an instance of what it is not: Only this  morning a clergyman in my diocese wrote  to me, 'hi consideration of your grace's  many infirmities and failing powers.'.  That was not tactful!"  Peter F. Dunne of "Dooley" fame,, has  been telling in London a story about the.  evening paper in which Mr. Dooley first  made his appearance���an ill-fated sheet  which the gods loved. . One day, just before the end, a funeral passed the office  with a band playing the "Dead March"  from "Saul." The editor and Mr. Dunne  Avatched it with emotion and fear. "Can  it be," they whispered, "our subscriber?'.'  After his son's great success with the  "Dame aiix Camelias," Alexandre Dumas  Avrote to him as though a stranger* con-  giatulating him on the book, and evpi ess-  ing a desire to make the -author's acquaintance. "1 myself am a hteiary  man," said he, in conclusion ; "and you  may have heaid my name as the author  of 'Monte Gusto.' " Dumas fils was equal  to the occasion. lie wiote immediately  in leply, expressing the great pleastue he  would have in making his coriospon-  dent's acquaintance, piincipally on account of tho high terms in which he had  always heaid his father speak of the  author of "Monte Ci i\,to."  In a pretty Wisccm-Mii town, not far  fiom Milwaukee, theie is a "spite fence,"  which cuts oil a view aeioos a nnmbei of  beautiful lawns. The man who lives on  one side of it (the Kansas Cihy .Star explains) evidently tea led that the fence  would bring down on his head the condemnation of his neighboi s. Not wishing to be tin justly blamed, he has theie-  fore painted on his side of the fence, in  letters that can be lead a block away,  these words: "Jle built this fence. 1  didn't do it." The man on the other side  also liad no idci of letting a false impies-  sion get out. Aecoidingly, he has painted on the other side of the high barrier :  "[ had to do it."   When sir John Steel, the noted English sculptor, had tlie duke of Wellington  sitting for a statue, he wanted to get  him to look -warlike. All his cffoi ts weie  in vain, however, for Wellington seemed,  nudging by his face, never to have heazd  _of_Waterloo  oi __T.il;*-. vot n At_last__sii_  John lost patience. "As I am going to  make this statue of your grace," he ex-  claimed, ''canyon not tell me what you  were doing before, say, the baittle of Siiltt-  manca? Were you not galloping about  the field cheering on your men to deeds  of valor by words and aetioli?"' "Ball!"  said tlie duke in evident scorn, "if yon  really want to model mo as I.wtis-on the  jnoi'uing of Salamanca, then do nie crawling along a diteli on my stomach, "with a  telescope in my hand."  Wlien Grant wtis president (according  to an old OJHicitll quoted in tlie AVitsFiing-  ton Post), lie used alternately to "chuckle  and i'uiininate agaiiust the expei'iditure of  good government coin for the "iniprove-  ment" of little streams that could never  be made fit for any lmmaii purpose.  There was a Virginian, who, failing to  get congress to stick in an appropriatioii  for the dredging Of a little stream down  in his section, finally importuned Grant  in  the matter.

The'Virginian, who  remembered the crossing of the stream  pretty well, replied affirmatively. "Look  hero," said Grant, after a pause, his face  lighting up suddenly, "why don't you  niacadami/.e it?"   Some  years .ago tin   affray among the  miners  of the West  resulted in murder,  jind senator Thurston, believing the accused to have been innocent in intention,  took  up his case and greatly  mitigated  the lad's punishment.    Six months aftcr-  w.ard ti man firmed to the teeth appeared  in   Thurston's  oflice.      "Be  you   squire  Thurston ?", "Yes."    "Be  you  the  man  that  defended   Jack Bailey   at  court?"-  The  senator, thinking  his last hour was  come, again answered "Yes."    "Well, I'm  Jack Bailey's  pardner, and I've come to  pay you.    I haven't got any money, but  I'm a "maii of honor.    Anybody in town  you don't like?"    As the senator smilingly  disclaimed  any thirst for   booty   or  blood,  the" caller  insisted iiicreduously:  "Put on  your hat, squire,  and just Avalk  down the street.    See anybody you don't  like, throw up your thumb, and I'll pop  him."      __________  "The Man With the Hoe."  A now opportunity for poets is offered  by an Eastern gentleman avIio, according  to the "-New-York Sun, feels that Edwin  Markham's poem, "The Man with the  hoe," misrepresents the agricultural  laborer. He says that tliere are lots  of young meii in this country who  have been educated up to the point  Avhere the farm-work their fathers did is  distasteful to them, and multitudes of  young  men  everywheie  who   feel  that  common Avork is beneath them, and that  they must earn their living in some Avay  that is "genteel.'' These, he says, are the  real brothers ofthe ox, and continues:  "Who shall tell their story? Who shall  best sing the bitter song ofthe incapables  avIio Avalk the earth, driven hither and  thither like beasts by the implacable sentiment of a false social education, suffering the tortures of the damned, and  bringing distress upon those dependent  upon them, because they have lost that  true independence of soul that comes to  him who dares to labor with his hands,  avIio Avields the hoe, and is the master of  his destiny?" For him who best sings  this "bitter song" he offers a purse of four  hundred dollars, Avith two hundred dollars for the next best singer, and ono  hundred dollars for the third.

In another paragraph the same paper  says : "The reports prepared by R.

The management on both  sides of the Atlantic enjoy the confidence  of tho respective shareholders who, from  the reports published, can clearly realise  that in the Enterprise' mine there is a  large quantity of rich ore opened up,  only awaiting the introduction of labor  to produce good returns, Tho unfortunate strike of local miners has also retarded operations on the AVhitcwater,  but these are temporary drawbacks ami  do not alter the potential value of the investments."
