Kimberley  was safe up. to tho night of the 22nd.  The story comes from Ladysmith that  the Boers shelled Dundee on .Sunday  evening with heiivy guns, aiming at the  magazine.

London, October 24.���The war office  published this evening this dispatch from  colonel Baden-Powell, British commander  jit Mafeking, dated October loth and forwarded from Capetown: All well here.  In a fight today four miles*from Mafeking, the armored train, a section of  police, and two squadrons of the protectorate regiment repulsed the enemy,  losing two killed and fifteen wounded,  the latter including lieutenant Bentinck,  Ninth Lancers, 'and lieutenant Bi'ay of  the protectorate regiment, both slightly.  Not Liable For Such. Claims.  London, October 21.���The first lord of  the treasury and government leader, A.  J. Balfour, replying iu the house of commons to a question regarding the-damage  done the Roman Catholic missions jn  Somoa by the shells of tho British  ships,  said  only  a single case had  war-  been  brought to the notice of the government,  adding that any claim would be fully  considered. But, he pointed out, according to principles of international law, the  government was uuder no liability to  compensate for losses caused by operations of war.  Short on Marksmen.

Police Scandal in Victoria.  Victoria, October 24.���Some interesting revelations in police methods are  . promised during the next few days,  hastened by the falling out between-  senior sergeant Walker and constable Clayards whom tho latter suspended for neglect of duty. Clayards  after his suspension came into court  as Avitness on behalf of the prostitute  whom Walker had summoned, and  backed up her story that the sergeant  had attempted to extort money from her.  The troops Will "Remain.  WASHINeTON, October 24.���Governor  Steuneiiberg of Idaho had another con*  fereuce today with-Secretary Root respecting the maintenance in federal custody of  the miners who are now held as prisoners  iu Idaho by the ti'oops. The war department is anxious to escape the responsibility for the further care of these prisoners.  On the other hand,governor Steunenberg  can not see his way clear to accept their  custody, because he has uot a .sufficient  force to take care of them, Secretary  Root suggested that the governor issue a  call for a special session of the legislature  to deal' with the question. Meanwhile  the war department will continue, for a  time at least, to hold the prisoners.  JOINT ATTACiUIN KIMBERLEY  Is the Boer Programme.  London, October 25.���The Daily Tele-^  graph has the following from Deear,  Cape Colony, dated Monday evening:  The Ti'ansvaal government are about  issuing a proclamation declaring the district nortli of the Vaal river and including Bechuanaland, to be Boer territory.  Commandant, Cronje, who has been  twice repulsed at Mafeking, is said to be  advancing on Kimberley, and to be im-  prifoiling men and seizing stores and munitions in British territory. He left a  small force investing Mafeking. The  Free State Boers are moving westward  iii order to join him for tin attack on  Kimberley.  The despatch riders who are coming  down to the; Orange river from Kimberley are .performing daring feats. They  ride through the Boer lines under cover  of darkness and get to the Orange river'  without taking tiny rest save for a  change'of horses. The distance is�� sixty  miles.  A dispatch from Kimberley, dated  October 21st, says the position in Kirn-  berly is unchanged. The siege continues.  Yesterday the armored train found the  enemy in the same position in the Spyt-  foutein neighborhood. The prisoners  who wei'e captured when the armored  tiaiu was destroyed by the'Boers at  Kraaipan, are now reported alive and  well treated.  The Boers hoisted the flag of the  Transvaal over Vryburg on October 18th  and aro about issuing a proclamation that  Bechuanaland now forms a part of the  Ti'ansvaal. This is regaided as a movement to induce the colonial Dutch to  join the republic without incurring a risk  hereafter of the chargo of liigk treason  if the Boers are ultimately defeated.  Colonel Kekwich, on hearing of it,, im^  mediately issued a proclamation notify^  ing the people that if any British  subjects wore found assisting her  majesty's enemies, either dii ectly or indirectly such persons would be punished  as rebels.  AN INTERVIEW THAT MAY LEAD  BY A SWIFT MARCH GENERALYULE  Effects a Junction "With General White.  London, October 25.���The Capetown  correspondent of the Daily Mail, telegraphing at 9.45 p.m. yesterday, says :  " General Yule has performed a brilliant  stategical movement. By a swift march  to tho south, leaving Gleneoe empty, he  has effected a junction of his forces with  tho.e of general White, slightly north of  Ladysmith. The two are now in a position to offer battle. I believe the first  attack will be made on the Free State  foice which entered Natal by way of  "Tintwa-pass-rand-which-lias-siiiee-beeu-  harassiug Ladysmith. The military authorities decided that by joining their  forces the two generals would be better  able to cope with one large force at a  Lime, than having two small detachments  to oppose simultaneously. Accordingly,  after defeating the Free State troops,  they will oiler battle to commandant-  general Joubert. Only forty miles now  septu ate the two Boer forces, Iience the  need for swift and telling action. The  two suctions of the Boor army together  outnumber the entire British force three  to ono. Hard fighting is cei'lain at a  very early date. Our men are confident,  and theic is much enthusiasm. The  fighting today outside Ladysmith was a  mere brush. The losses on oithcr side  were insiguificent. It was an artillery  duel, in which the Boers came oil" decidedly the worst."  Dawson Wants to Send a Hundred Men.  Victoria, October 24.���News from the  nortli todtiy is that Dawson has caught  the war fever, and her citizens send an  offer to contribute a hundred men aud  the money to equip and pay them on  service, to fight for the British cause in  South Africa, Many of the volunteers  are time expired men of the Northwest  Mounted Police, and splendid cavalry  soldiers.           EobberietJ at Montreal.  MontiikaIj, October 24.���A daring burglary was committed hero early Sunday  moining on the premises of the Ljing  Manufacturing Company, wholesale biscuit and candy manufacturers. The  burglars bound and gagged the night  watchman. They only secured, however,  about $250. Gurd & Co., ginger ale manufacturers, were also robbed of $250 on  Saturday.  To Satisfactory Kesults.  The interview which  mayor Neelauds  and city clerk Strachau had with  presi-  dent Shaughnessy on   Monday evening  was highly  satisfactory.    Their mission,  in tho first'instance, was to place before  the    railway    president    the   difficulty  which had cropped up between the city  and the railway company with respect to  the Hall street recreation grounds.  They  found  president Shaughnessy prepared'  to discuss the matter without quibbling.  In the first place, he stated that if there  had been any agreement, verbal or writ-]  ten, ou the part of the  railway-company'  to transfer to the city the lots  embraced  within the present recreation  ground, it  would be carried out.     The representatives of the corporation had no difficulty  in convincing Mr. Shaughnessy that there  had  been  such an  agreement, and  the  prospect of the city's securing the lots in  question   is now higher  than  ever.    It  will  now be  referred  to Mi". Hamilton,  the company^s land commissioner, and a  settlement satisfactory to the city may;  be expected. '  Mr.   Shaughnessy then  proceeded   to  talk of matters of general interest to tlie  people of Nelson.    As a beginning, he offered it as his opinion that the future of:  Nelson  was  assured.     He followed this  up with the statement that the Canadian-  Pacific Railway Company had decided to:  make Nelson a divisional point.     In line.'  with this policy, the company would proceed at once with  the  rearrangement of.  ��� the-company's.yard in this city.    This he  said would embrace  extensive improvements along  the  water  front, including  the building of shops, a new station, and  and another  wharf.     Mr.  Shaughnessy  stated   that   he   had   looked   over   the  ground  and   appreciated the inconvenience which had been  occasioned -during  the high water of 1894.    He  added, that  in the rearrangement contemplated such  provision would be made as  would prevent   a    reoccurrence  of   the   difficulty  of 1894.    As the company  contemplated  large expenditures in Nelson in the eree-  tiou of divisional facilities, Mr. Shaughnessy  sttited  that  the  company  would  naturally expect some consideration from  the city in the  way of exemption  from  taxation 'for a given period, at least of  the works which it was proposed to put  up.    In this he was met  by the mayor,  who assured him that he was satisfied in  his own mind that the  eity would deal  generously  with   the   company in this  respect.  In speaking of the company's intentions with respect to the completion of  tlie Crow's Nest Pass branch, by building  the connecting link between Nelson aud  Kootenay1 Landing, t Mr. Shaughnessy  plainly intimated that the company  would not attempt to complete its contract if au extension could be secured  from the Dominion government. The  only portion of the road which the company contemplated building at pi'esent  was the line fiom Nelson to Balfour.  This, he said, would be undertaken at  once. Its completion would enable the  company to make the transfer from  Kootenay Landing in about two hours.  A MILLION A YEAR TAKEN FROM  Curling Club Meeting.

The membership of the club  wtis limited to fifty. Tlie date of the  next meeting will be duly announced  by the secretary.  What Samuel Smith Thinks.  Toronto, October 24.���In a lectin e at  Knox church last night on ritualism in  England, Samuel Smith, M. P. for Flintshire, predicted that England was going  to pass through a time like that of Laud.  He said that there would not be civil  war, but a bitter fight between Piotest-  antism.Jiud Romanism.  Spokane Toilers by Gamblers.  Spokane Chronicle.  During the recent reform agitation the  gambling question received more or less  attention, but there are few who  have  any idea as to the extent  to  which  this  business is carried on in this city, unless  they have made a personal visit to the  gambling  halls.    Everyone knows  that  gambling   is   and   has   been carried on:  openly in this city for a number of years  uuder "police protection," but many have  an idea that it is only followed by ii certain small class and that no great amount,  of   harm   is   done   thereby.      One  trip  through the  gambling houses,  however,  is all that is needed to convince one that,  gambling is today one of the leading "industries" of the city, and  that as  much  money   passes    through    the   gambling  houses as through the banks.  There are now in the city five gambling  houses conducting  what are  known  as  banking games, where the outsider plays  against the house.    These are all located  within  three  blocks  of   each  other,  in  what has come to be known as the "down  town" portion of the,city.    They are the:  Coeur d.Aleue, the  Owl, the  Stockholm,  Harry Green's, and tlm Le Roi.    There is  but  little   difference in  the  manner  in  which they are  conducted, except, perhaps,  that the  two last named have a  better class of customers���those  Avho do  hot like to play at the same  tables   with  the  Chinamen who frequent the  other  houses in larger numbers,  y   Some idea  of the magnitude  of   the  gambling business in.this city can be had  from   the   statement  that   one   of   the  houses alone  employs  over  fifty dealers  for its  games, at average salaries of $6  per day.    This means a monthly expense  of .$900.0 for salaries - alone, to  say nothing of the other expenses,' including the  regular monthly fines,  which amount to  several   hundred   dollars.       The   exjict  amount paid for .fines this month  is not  yet  ascertainable,  as  nearly  all of  the  houses have been putting  in additional  tables and getting ready for the increase  in business which always  comes  at this  tiihe of the year, when the men who have  been away to the miuesand harvest fields  woi king for the summer are beginning to  come back to the city.    It is estimated,  however, that the daily expense  of running the Owl, which is. perhaps, the best  patroni'/cd of the gambling houses, is not  less than $1000 per  day.    But, notwithstanding   this   enormous  expense,  it  is  making big jnoney for its proprietors.  When one is confronted with these figures, the question naturally arises as to  where this money comes from. To answer this it is necessary to visit the house  and take a look at the players. The hall has  been enlarged recently to accommodate  the rush in business, but still when  one steps in there on a Saturday night it  is like trying to force his way through  the crowd at the opening of the amusement-tent at the exposition last week.  Always well filled up, the gambling halls  are literally packed on Saturday nights,  when the working men of the city receive  tlieir wages.' Every table is crowded  with playeis, with others cagei'Iy trying  to get in reach that they may place their  bets. Sitting side by side and rubbing  elbows with etich other may be seen till  classes of people, fi om pi'omiheht biisi-  ness men to the lowest type of rounders  who has been "staked" by some fallen  women. Here may be seen young  men holding j'esponsiblc positions,  who come in and make their bets  as though they were ashamed to be seen,  but who can not rosist the temptation to try their luck ou the green cloth,  in the vain hope that they may be able to  add something to the salaries that they  receive for their work. It is a nighlly  occurrence to see the*-e young men "go  broke" and leave the hall vowing that  they will never come imck again, but  they always return on their next pay  day to try and retrieve what they have  lost.  These smiie scenes are enacted at till of  the gambling houses, and the propiiotois  are getting rich, while those who ftitni-h  the money are getting deeper and deeper  in the toils till they become confinned  gamblers, and many end by going into  crime to secure the means to gratify  their passion.  In biicf, Spokane's gambling halls, it is  estimated, take from the working men of  the city between *. 150,000 to $200,000 per  month, for which they give nothing in  return.    Worked to His Satisfaction.  A. II, Gracey, who for nearly a pa^t  has had his headquarters in the .Slocan,  was introduced on the Toronto Mining  Exchange the other day. lie litis been  engaged in supetintending the development of a number of mining propei ties  ���in which Toronto people are interested,  and his woivk has been successful, in regard to his own work Mr, Gracey declined  to make tiny statement beyond the fact  that the miners' strike there had been of  the utmost help to him, says the Toronto  ��� Globe. He paid the full scale of wages  demanded by the men, and in that way  was able to command the very best labor  in the country. All his miners were  skilled and experienced men, and while  he paid the highest wages the quality  and quantity of the work amply repaid  the extra outlay. He is operating the St.  Louis group on Lemon creek, and the  Silver Queen, near Burton City. Mr.  Gracey avjis previously engaged in mining  ���in California and the western states, and  was also employed as an expert by the  Ontario government.  THE ALASKAN BOUNDARY DISPUTE  Still Hangs Fire.  Washington, October 24.���It is said at  the stjite department  that the proposal  as to a permanent Alaskan boundary laid  down bp sir Louis Davies is nothing more  or less  than  a  summary  of the  claims  heretofore   preferred.    When  the  commission  was in  session  hist spring, and  the  Cauadi.au  proposition was  made  to  settle the boundary question by arbitration,the American commissioners replied  with  an offer  to accept arbitration  on  condition that no point occupied  bythe  Americans for a specified  term  of years  should be  submitted to arbitration.    In  other words, the  question  was  so  fixed  that by no possibility  could the title  to  Skaguay or   any  other place  that the  Americans  had occupied  for the period  represented by the discovery of the Klondike gold fields be called into question by  the arbitration.    This   was   one  of the  final propositions rejected by the Canadian   commissioners,   Avhich    caused   the  failure   of   the   join   conference.    Since  that time there  have'been���-��� several  suggestions  in the nature of  compromises,  and including among  these was one like  that   embodied    in    sir   Louis    Davies'  proposition,   namely,   that   the   United  States should confirm the Canadian title  to I_iittle Pyramid  harbor in  return for  Canadian confirmation of the  Ameiican  title  to  Skaguay.    It  is not possible to  accurately   forecast  the  view  that tlie  state department will take of the propo-  sition, but it may be proper to recall the  fact that, in the  opinion of the  department, Canada has no more claim to Pyramid harbor than it litis to Skaguay and  J)yea, and the   British  government has  already been   informed  of   that belief.  Therefore,   it   seems   probable  that  sir  Louis Davies' proposition Avill not niatcii-  ally advance a, permanent  settlement of  the boundai-y question, tind that the two  countries -will continue to act  under the  terms of the modus  A'ivendi recently tir-  ranged by secretary Hay aud Mr. Tower.  As   to   the merits  of   the  last mooted  proposition,    it    can   be    stated    that  tit    no    time    since    the    negotiations  have   been    in    progress   ,for    jui   adjustment    of    the    Alaskan    boundary  line has the  United States  government  given serious consideration to the cession  to Canada of a single inch  of ground on  the shores of J_ynn canal.    That position  litis uot been changed in any essential re-  syeet, and as J^yramid harbor is certainly  on a branch of the canal, it follows that  the United States government bad never  had it in contemplation to  surrender its  possessions.    Of Mr.   Lewis'   mission   to  London  regarding   claims of   Ameiican  miners in  the  Atlin  district in   British  Columbia,  the  state department knows  nothing ofTicitil Iy.    lTe~d id~hot~appear at"  the department to secure tiny credentials,  and so Avent entirely on his own responsibility.    GENERALWHITE MEETS THE BOER  Forces Near Ladysmith.  London, October 25.���The following  dispatch from general White to the  secretary of state for war, received last  evening at 11 o'clock, avjis posted at the  war oflice ��oon after midnight:  "Ladvs.mith, October 21���9 p.m.��� lii-  fo.'jnatioti received yesterday shows that  the Boers had established themselves in  cons-idej'able immbci's in tin exceedingly  good position west of the main road  leading from Iptidysmith to Dundee. I  also hud infoi ination that the Dundee  forces, formerly commanded by general  .Symons and since his Avouud coniui.uidcd  by general Yule, was falling back on  Ladys-mith by way of tho Hclpmakarr  road, and wtis expected to reach Sunday  liver A'ttlloy on Monday. I thcrefoie  nuned out a strong force to cover the  movement of Yule's command, flu*  enemy avjis discovered about se\on miles  out from Lady-mi tli, a position of exceptional iicutial strength Avest of the  j'otul. When he saw that preparations  were being made against him, he opened  fire A\'ith one gun with great accuracy. Our artillery soon got into  position and the gun was silenced. Troops  A\ere otdered to occupy a strong ridge,  parallel to tho enemy's position, but  nearer the rotut. I con-fined; my efforts  to occupying him and hitting him hard  enough to prevent liis taking action  against Yule's column. Numbers ofthe  enemy filed to'the .west .'and firing had  practically ceased at two o'clock.  WHAT COMES JMI WORKING A  Mine in the Slocan.  New Dknvki'j, October 24.--A strike of  importance and encouraging' proportions  was made on  Friday  on the  California  group, Silver mountain, the particulars  of Avhich arrived down the hill Saturday  evening.    The  oi-e avjis  encountered  in  the raise being driven from the No. 3 to  the   No.   2   tunnels,   and   the  chute  is  eighteen     inches   in    Avidth    of    clean  shipping oi'e, giving high values in silver  and lead.    The raise is iioav up  55  feet,  Avith 85 feet more  to  run   to  catch  the  foot of a ten-foot winze sunk  from  the  No.   2   workings.    In   the   winze    nine  inches of galena and fourteen  inches  of  carbonates are exposed, wliich, Avith  the  strike   now made,  gives a  fairly  lai-ge  chute   to work   upon.      New Avorkings  were commenced this fall on the Clipper  ground, Avhich -will be knoAvn as the No.  4 Avorkings, there being  three  drifts  on  the California above.     No. 4 i.s in 24 feet  and will be driven 2;*55 feet  to  catch the  Clipper A-ein ; thence 170 feet along that  to   tap  the  California  lead.    This  Avill  prove the property at a great depth and  give ample  stopiug  territory foi   shipments.     The  Avork  on  the  property  is  being done in an admirable manner and  the results are proving alike beneficial to  the owners and the toAvn.     Considerable  supplies htwe been sent up  the  hill, including a number of rails  for  the No. 4  tunnel.    It is the intention  of  the  management to increase the force at once to  fifteen men, and larger as  development"  warrants.      The    California-Clipper    is  stocked  for $1,000,000,  divided  into  $1  shares.    Of this  amount 250,000  shares  are placed in the treasury, to be sold at  25 cents, and as the certificates are now-  printed, they Avill be issued at once.   The  remainder of the stock  is  pooled.    Two  cars of ore Avas shipped last October and   .  netted splendid  results,  one car  giving  returns of 192 ounces silver and  70 per  cent lead.  The pi-ogress of the California,  Avhich   is   to   be   energetically   Avoi'ked  throughout the Avinter,  means  a great  deal to Ncav Denver, as affordiug one of  the principal payrolls of the toAvn.  Good Reports From Other Mines.  The Marion, another of the Silver  mountain properties, never looked better  than it does at the present time, the ore  chute still continuing in the main-drift.  There is more than sufficient ore now iu  sight to pay the bond on the group aud  its development to date. The Toronto -  bonders have made a most fortunate in;  vestment. Oi^NoA'einber 4th, the first pay- "*"  iuent falls due and Avill be promptly met.  "  On   the   Hartney,   also, in'tho   same  neighborhood, development is proceeding '-���  'in-an-"energetic - manner, aud   manager  ,  Bluemeiiauer is   Avell   pleased with the  showings so far made.

The respective claim holders and  mine ~  operators* ou .Silver mountain are  agitating  strongly for  government action  in  putting ti road up tliat hill Avith tis  little  delay   as  possible.    To the citizens  and  business men of the town, it menus much  to have  the  road  built, and' It is -high  time some' move was being made to have  things put into proper shape.    The  distance is not over three miles, andaneasy  grade can  be had the  entire  way- from,  the   New Denver   Avagon  road   up   the  creek.     Mine  operators  are at  present"-  working under a  hardship,  as  it  costs   .  .$30   per   ton   to hirve   supplies   packed  up,    while    $12    per     ton    was     paid,  by   tlie   California   to   have    their   ore  packed down  last fall.   .Coal -costs, here  $80   per  ton,  and  an  additional $30  to  ,  liaVve "it-packed" up" the_J)ill makes-it n.���  costly necessity.    The developments now  going on at tho California, Marion, Hart-    ���  ncy,   Lost   Tiger   aud   other properties  makes a Avagon road tin imperative factor  for  future operations.    Its  construction  would lessen the  cost  of  transportation  fully  '55  por  cent.,  and  be  of  immense,  benefit lo tlie  toAvn.    The  business men-  .should move in this all-important matter  and not merely  sit  by and contemplate,    .  as  !tu-> been   tho  invariable  rule iu the  past. ' It is high time New  Denver began  to bestir herself and utilize the many ad-  A-,a nt ages'    Jind     resources    nature    has  bhwed her with.  New buildings aro being constructed  on the Chaplotiu, and so soon as they tn*e  completed active development on the  property aviII be commenced. The quarters will accommodate a large force.  On the Arlington, Springer creek, more  than.twenty men are employed, and the  management i.s spending a heap of money  in proving iip this most promising property. _ , ���  Merchants, as a rule throughout the  camp, report a revival in business, there  being tin increase in the staff pf men employed and more money iu circulation.  Tliis is especially noticeable in Sandon.  Tho day of the calamity howler is drawing to a close.  An American Swindler Sentenced.

WEIR  MEN'S OUTFITTER  Sign ot the RED  HAT, Baker St., Nelson  linotype, who is sick at Baltimore with  little chance of recovery. This man  thought out and brought to perfection a  plan for a machine Avhich Avould do more  speedily and more extensiArely the Avork  of setting type, and his invention has  proven one of the greatest labor-saving  devices of late days. Saving labor, it  has earned money and made some men  rich, but the inventor is not one of them.  Like lminy another man of genius, he  had no money to put his product on the  market. He turned it over to a syndicate to handle and the syndicate has  handled it ever since. It has also  handled all the profits. The man wlio  made possible the earning of the money  got none of it. His dream of success and  resultant Avealth, if ho had one in his  earlier days, had an abrupt ending, and  of late he litis had a chance to meditate  on the uncertainties of life in a little shop  Avhere he litis earned a living by making  various small parts of his machine for repair purposes.

The  prizes for tlie mineral exhibit at  the Spokane exhibition liave been awarded,  and we  must say- that we consider  them  far from  satisfactory, and  many  others express the same opinion.    In the  district exhibit Sumpter, Oregon, with a  large display of ore of one cluiracter, gets  first, Buffalo Hump, with a small exhibit  of inferior ore, gets second, aud Boundary  Creek, with the largest exhibit of ore of  every  character' and  gra'de,  gets   third  prize.    This is manifestly unfair, aud the  making of such awards will not be conducive  to large,  or  any,  exhibits from  the surrounding distiiets in future years.  In the individual exhibition the Boundary  Creek Mining  & Milling Company's  properties take second prize.    In the copper  ores Boundary Creek,  with  its fine  showing* of chalcopyrite,  bornite, glance,  and native copper, gets no mention.    In  the copper-gold ores Rossland, with less  .than a dozen specimen exhibits, gets first  place ; jtndBoundary Creek,, with-tons of  ore well exhibited, is relegated iigaiu to  second place.    AVe have no hesitation in  nfiirining   thtvt Boundary  Creek  district  has the finest mineral  exhibit at the exhibition, consisting its it does of rich gold-  bearing    quartz,   high     grade    galena,  tcHurides, and chalcopyrites, and should  havo j-eceived tho  first prize in the dis--  trict   exhibit, instead  of being insulted  with the third. <���  state  Bi'itish Columbia;  Tin-!

Nkw York, October 24.���An informal  luncheon in honor of sir Thomas Lipton.,  owner of the Shamrock, was given today  in the rooms of the Transportation Club  iu the Manhattan hotel. A number of  railway and steamboat officials were present. SenatoriChivuncey =M. Depew, president of the club, was selected to receive  the guest of honor, Tho senator, in air  address, said: " It is the sporting spirit  in its be^t sense that cari'ies 3_ngland's  Hag over the world, aud it is the sporting  spirit in its best sense that carries our  flag to the other side of the world. The  same feeling stirred us when we received  the news of the battle of San Juan, and  the same spirit stirred- us two or three  days ago when we received the news of  the fighting in the Transvjial" In reply,  sir Thomas Lipton said he was deeply  liioved by the sincere greeting accorded  him. "I have been asked," stiid sir Thomas, " if I would challenge again. Unfortunately, Mr. Fife, the designer of the  Shamrock, has been ill, and we have not  had the benefit of his advice during the  whole series of races. After the laat race  he was too ill to be told, although I suppose he knows now. I am prepared to  make another challenge when Mr. Fife  regains his health and I can discuss the  matter with him."

The  first witness called was captain Skrim-  shire of the ill-fated steamer. His evidence was taken with closed doors.

A Modern Solomon.  Chicago, October 21.���Forty-two wives  scattered throughout tho world, four of  whom are in Chicago, was tlie confession  made today by Walter Farnsworth, ji  Chicago candy manufacturer, who was  arrested yesterday chai'ged with bigamy.  " I cannot tell exactly how many women  I have married," sjiid he. " I know of  eleven in Europe, four in China, three in  Peru, one in England, siud over twenty  others in diiferen. pares of tho world,  but to save my soul I could not tell how  many women I married. They will tell  you I wjis good to them."  The Tremont Hotel  IVfALO^E & TREfiiLLUS  PROPRIETORS  :*3:t  Appreciation  %  Headquarters ftp Miners and Prospeetors  %4  To dispose of an entire car of high-class iron and  brass beds in a western mining town in less than two  months is certainly a record to be proud of, and one  seldom equalled in the large eastern cities. 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.

JACOB DOVER, Jeweler  WE SELL AT WHOLESALE AND RETAIL  THE LOCAL NEWS OF THE TOWN  Shortly before eight o'clock last evening the fire department received a call to  H. R. Cameron's residence on Front  street in the Fairview addition. The fire  was caused by a defective fireplace, and  upwards of $75 worth of damage was  done. It was a long pull for the hook  and ladder truck, but the boys made it in  good time. The fire was extinguished  with the Babcock extinguisher.  The West Kootenay Power & Light  Company, which is putting in the power  line from JJonnington Falls to Nelson for  the use of the local tramway company,  has the line completed to within two  miles of the city. Tho power company  announces that the power will be on tap  before the ti-aimvay company's cars arrive from Peterboi'o.  Jacob Dover leaves on a trip through  the Boundary today. His mission is to  supply the merchants of that section  with jewelry-and plated wjue for the  holiday trade. On his return he Avill  take in the points along the Crow's Nest  Pass line.  W. J. Mitchell of Toronto, formerly, a  Avholesale druggist of Montreal, is on a  visit to Nelson renewing old business jic-  quaintauces. He is accompanied by Mrs.  Mitchell.  The local fire insurance agents have  not yet received the new ratings on  blocks No. 1 and 5, which were prepare��d,  by Dixwell Davenport during his recent!  visit to the city. The Mainland board of-  underwriters had a meeting in Vancouver yesterday, and the new ratings lire  probably now on the way.  Anyone knowing the whereabouts of  Edward Neville Smith, described as tall  jind thin, wearing eye glasses, 20 years of>  age, was iu Nelson last July, should address Max Johnson, Hotel Hume, Nelson.  The case of Kerr vs P. Burns & Com-'  pany occupied the whole of yesterday's,  session of the supreme court. It will go  on again today.  The fire department had a call shortly  after one o'clock yesterday to the Hudson's Bay Company's stoi'e. The alarm  was necessitated by ix candle having  burned down into the block iu which it  was set, and through the head of a barrel  in which there was some straw. There  Avas a great deal of smoke but mo damage.  The locsil tramway company has got  over the difficulty wliich stood in the  way of its extension from the city limits  to the Nelson & Fort Sheppard raihvay  depot. The company has purchased outright five lots which enables it to cross  oyer to Oak street in the Fairview'addition.'  * Geoi'ge TV.
