Array WAR NEWS FROM SOUTH AFRICA  -London, November 9.���The war office  lias received the following dispatch from  general Buller, dated Capetown, Wednesday   evening,   November   8 :      "Colonel  Kekewich  telegraphs   from   Kimberley,  November Sth, that all is well and  there  hits  been  no  serious attacks as yet.    A  slight bom bard men t did no damage.    Information   from   Mafeking   shows   that  place was safe on October 27th.    Colonel  Plumer had a successful engagement near  Port Tull,  on   October    27th.     General  White leports by pigeon  post  that  the  wounded and some civilians from  Ladysmith   have   been   removed   four   miles  down the  railroad   by  an  arrangement  with general Joubert to ti neutral   place  to save them from bombardment. Ninety-  nine wounded  from   Dundee  have  been  sent in under iv (lag of truce.     They are  all doing well.    The  bombardment  was  discontinued on November 4th  and  fith,  and it is expected to commence November  (5th."  The absence  of   stirring    war    news  rehabilitates general White in  the  estimation of the public, who since liis reverse  at Nicholson's Nek certainly appear.*"-'  to  have lined his central position to successfully  strike at different   points of   the  circle of investment, thus restoring confidence in his jibility to hold the Boers in  check, have permitted public attention to  momentarily revert to the political feat-  nres of the South African conflict.    Lord  Salisbury, at  the loid  mayor's  banquet  tonight will outline the government's policy   in   regard   to   the   future   government . of the Ti'ansvaal and the Orange  Free Sttite, and explain the references in  the  queen's  speech  to '-military  operations "   (not    " war"),     and     restoring  peace and good government to that portion of "my empire" meant nothing more  or less than that, in the  opinion  of the  government, president Kruger, by making  war on the queen, destroyed all claims to  independence granted by the conventions  of 1881 Jind 1884, and  consequently the  country luid reverted toitsprevious status,  and is.  theoretically part of the queen's  dominions.    The Associated Press pointed  out at the time that the phraseology of  the queen's speech could not be otherwise  explained than that at  the time  of the  speech the republics of South Africa had  already ceased to  exist as  separate  nations, but if Salisbury is prepared at this  early stage of the operations to definitely  announce  a policy of the future, when  apparently so inany problems remain to  be solved, both during.aud after the war,  he  must have already rejiched a  more  definite  understanding   with  several  of  tjie powers than the public' is aware- of.  Tlie     piemier's     speech,    therefore,    is  awaited with   unusual  interest,  and   it  seems eertjiin he will at least be able to  POBLISHBD ^9/rJ?jQf^fifi^J3n COLUMBIA.

It is a*-; follows: "Ladysmith,  Tuesday, November 7.���I sent you November 3rd by uathe messenger ji report  of the engagement of that date, but I  am not sure if it reached you, as the  messenger has not returned.

The Price Will Astound the World,  London, November 9.���Tiie morning  papers have long account- of an interview with Dr. Leyds, the special representative in Europe of the Transvaal,  who argues that the Transvaal has everything to gain by remaining independent,  and that her niining laws are the most  liberal of any in tho world and prevent  capitalists from obtaining monopolies.  In the course of his remarks Dr, Leyds  repeats president Kruger's assertion, that  if the republics must eventually belong  to England, the latter will pjiy a price  for them, which will astound the world.  The war to which the Transvaal has been  forced, Dr. Leyds asserts,' luis demonstrated to the whole world the courage  and chivalry of these little people, which  even their enemies do not hesitate to  recognize.   A Transport Disabled,  St. Vincent, Cape Verde Island, November 9.���The British transport Persia,  with a squadron of the Eliniskillen dragoons, a hospital detachment aud munitions of war on board, has been towed  here in a disabled condition.

London, November 9.���The movement  recently started in Loudon to raise a fund  to equip an" American hospital ship for  service on the South African coast is  meeting with great success.

London, November 9.���At the Guildhall bjmquet the marquis of Salisbury,  lord "Wolseley, Mr. Ritchie, lord George  Hamilton, lord Halsbury, the lord chief  justice, the duke of Marlborough and a  few minor diplomats were i-U'esent. Mr.  Chamberlain was absent. Lord Salisbury  and lord Wolseley were warmly cheered  as they passed from the reception room  into the banqueting hall. The lord mayor  proposed, "The Ministers" in a speech,  and denounced the "ignorant arrogance  of the invader," dwelling on the fact that  sir Alfred Milner, in spite of herculean  efforts, was unable to "prevail with the  overbearing corrupt oligarchy, therefore  othei s of our cbiimpions have the business  in hand." During the course of the banquet, lord Wolseley announced that  orders had been given-to mobilize another  division tor South Africa, anel that" the  government was quite prepared to mobilize a second army corps.  Admiral Dewey Married.  Washington, November 9.���Admintl  Dewey and Mrs. Mildred Hazen were  married quietly at the rectory of St.  Paul's Catholic church in this city shortly  before 10 o'clock this morning. The  ceremony was performed by Rev. James  F. JMcKim, pastor of the church. The  ceremony was of the simplest character,  according to the rites of the Catholic  church, jmd the only witnesses besides  tlie officiating clergyman were Mrs. Washington McLean and Mrs. Ludlow, mother  jind sister of the bride, and lieutenant  Callowell, Dewey's secretary. The arrangements for the wedding were made  with all the secrecy which lut-j attended  tlie whole affair. As Dewey is not a  Catholic, a special dispensation was required for the performance of the ceremony. Admiral aud Mrs. Dewey left at  12:45 p.m. for New York.  The Old, Old Kick.  The following are extracts from a letter received by The Trujunk from a resident of Robson : "Something seems to be  wrong with the mail set vice between  Nelson and Robson. THE Tkiuunk has  been reaching your subscribers jit this  place in bunches of two or three at a  time, instead of daily. Another kick here  is that the mail from the Coast is sent  direct to Nels<*m and then back te Robson, passing this ollico and returning the  next day, thus keeping us out of our mail  for 24 hours." The fault for non-delivery  of The Tribune cannot be laid at the  door of the postoffice at Nelson, 'for it is  not sent to Robson through the mails.  There is no reason why Robson mail  should not be pouched at Revelstoke  direct to Robson, except it be that the  postoffice people at Revelstoke are short  of sacks.   The Attempt Will Be Frustrated.  Kamloops Sentinel,  In response to st telegraphic enquiry as  to what steps the government would take  to enforce the Alien Labor law in the  Slocan and so frustrate the efforts of the  Silver-Lej-id Mine Owners* Association to  import cheap foreign labor, sir Wilfred  Laurier wired the Sentinel this afternoon  that the government had not as yet received the detailed information which  had been sent forward fiom the Slocan to  Ottawji by mail. From the tone of sir  Wilfrid's dispatch it is safe to assume  that the government will not hesitate to  give the Canadian residents of the Slocan  the protection they asked for.  Everybody is talking about trusts, and  almost everybody is opposed to them.  They fail to see that trusts are a natural  growth of the industrial system that has  been controling the world since it had a  history, just as kings controled it until  later centuries. People do not understand what a trust is. They notice it  when it gets very large and powerful,  but fail to see the same principle operating in even the smallest business. But it  is there, just the same. Each is doing  business on exactly the same principle  and for the same object, viz., to sell as  much as possible and to make the largest  profit possible."  Now, trusts .arenot necessarily bad.  Trusts benefit those who are on the inside. If the whole people own the trusts,  the whole people would be benefitted by  them.  There is one real complete monopoly in  this country. Tuat is the post-office.  That monopoly is upheld by law, no per-  son'or firm being allowed to engage in  engage in the business of carrying written  letters. Yet you are not complaining  about the oppression of the post-office.  It has never made a millionaire, except  through the extortion of railroads for  carrying the mails. So you see a monopoly is not {necessarily bad. Public  monopolies are good, private monopolies  are bad for the-people.  The days of small businesses have  passed. The great factories and corporations are here to stay. They are better  and can produce and handle everything  to better advantage than small concerns,  hence the small fellows are failing, just  as the shoemakers failed on the perfection of the shoe making industry.  You can see this developing on every  side of you. There is not a single indication that it is ever going to be otherwise.  In the very nature of things it cannot  but continue, unless society is going back  to a primitive state, which you know it  isn't.  As more perfect machinery is developed, as it will be; as more system is injected into the affairs of men, as it will  be, it will require capital in greater aggregations to operate things, and the  greater the capital necessary the fewer  the people who-will control it. This will  tend to increase monopolies. Competition is dying. There was a time when it  may have served a ,good purpose, but  that time having passed, it is now writhing in its last death agony-    -  From now forward we "are to have  monopoly. You have no choice as between monopoly and no monopoly. Nor  have the people of any country on earth.  You have the choice only as to whether  it shall be public monopoly or private  monopoly.  This is all the choiee you have.  "Be it enacted th��it the trusts disolve"  will never put the monsters to flight.  Put not your confidence in the pretended opposition to trusts by politicians who  have stocks and bonds in them.  Ljiws to tax trusts will not dissolve  them, for they will immediately add the  tidditionjiiil costs of articles and you will  have to pay the tax.  Laws denying them the courts to collect debts will not dissolve them, for they  -willonly sell for cash in advance and will  use the hiw as $m exevse for their action.  Laws declaring them conspiracies will  not disolve them, for it will be impossible  to prove in any court that tliey are con-  spiiing, or doing business on any other  basis than any other firm.  Laws that attempt to compel them to  compete will be inoperative, for men who  can make more by not competing will not  compete. Besides, when there is a complete monopoly, how can it compete.  Laws that will put the prices on their  products will be denying the right of  private property, and they would at once  cut the wages of their employes to make  more profits.  Laws that would regulate the wages of  their employes would be nullified by their  instantly increasing the price of the products to make it up, and more, too. '  To destroy the trusts by law, if that  were in the realm of the possible, would  be to do away with all the great machinery and force the world back into the  days of the stage coach and wooden stick  for a plow.  To enable a small dealer to compete  with one who does an enormous business  is impossible, except by giving him a  bonus out af the public treasury, which  would again tux the people already  groaning with burdens.  The Price of Silver.  Nkw York, November 9.���There was it  sale of silver certificates for 40,000 ounces  today at sixty days buyers' option at  prices ranging from (50 to OOAe, and a sjile  of 50,000 ounces at (50c regular.  New Restaurant.  C. II. Stipp, well-known in Nelson, has  taken over the management of tne Nelson  House cafe. He promises to run a first-  class establishment.  NEW   ZEALAND   EXPERIMENTS.  William Pember Reeves, agent-general  of New Zealand, read a paper before the  oommercial congress at Philadelphia upon  what he called the "experiments" which  his colong is trying. One of the laws  prohibits the "employment o^ women and  boys under 18 for more than 48 hours a  week in factories, and limits the number  of hours for which women and girls may  work in shops to ot a week. Factories  are practically closed on Saturdays and  shops on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Far twenty days in each month every  mercantile or financial establishment  must elo.se at five p.m., and on Saturday  afternoon...  The government is endeavoring as far  as possible to retain the fee simple of all  the land, which it leases out iu small allotments. It "is repurchasing large estates and dividing them up among "a  state tenantry." Women are allowed to  vote, and Mr.. Reeves says that they cannot be said to have produced any material changes in parties or politics. In fact  he says the complaint is that their influence is exceedingly limited, though he  himself thinks they have done some good  aud will do more.  Mr. Reeves laid most stress upon the  'Compulsory Arbitration Law," of which  he was the author. He thinks it the  most advanced piece of labor legislation  that the world has yet seen. We quote  his observations on this poiut in full.  I WJint to refer especially to the measure which is known as the New Zealand  Compulsory Arbitration Law, which I  regard as the keystone of our labor legislation. This measure of compulsion is  designed to protect working men against  powerful corporations or combinations of  capital. In fact, the whole object of our  labor system, so far as legislation is concerned, is to secure freedom. Our object  is to prevent people from doing wrong to  their fellow-citizens.  Now, having regard to civilized countries generally, the condition of workmen  is  better than  it  was  two generations  ago, yet in the endeavor to deal with the  problem of capital and labor there has  been jaiiure wherever we direct our attention.      The conflicts" between   these  two  interests have   increased,  and  the  remedies   once propounded   with  confidence���especially between 1800 and 1890  ���are now regarded'Avith much less hope.  The supposition that in  volnntary. arbi-  ���bralioii we wei'e to have  a panacea ior  the disputes between capital and labor is  now given up.    So little has the example  of Great Britain affected other nations  that not even a single one of her colonies  has adopted j the system : this, moreover,  is also true of the continental nations���of  France, Germany, Switzerland and Denmark.    But the.se countries Inive adopted  the  optional conciliation laws  proposed  by the state.   Yet, as I am sorry to say,  these laws have failed without a  single  exception.   Moreover, most of them were  stillborn���they were put on the statute  book and nobody has heard of them since.  Some laws of this kind have been  pathetic failures,  like  the    conciliation  law  now ia operation iu Enghuid, for it  in-  varijibly fails when put to the test of an  important dispute.  What then, is to be done? We in the  Australian colonies ���were _ not���lucky  enough to escape the labor problem, for  where you get the industrial system of  the old world, there you are sure to have  the labor-iuid-eapital disputes of the old  world. Several strikes���wasteful and  troublesome strikes���took place, and the  public conscience revolted at them. The  humanitarians were disgusted with tlie  warfare and its results; the laboring  people disliked the trouble; nor was it  pleasant to the politicians, to whom tlie  workpeople came for help and for intcr-  pfcrence. It was about this time that  the progressive party came in power and  took office. A government was formed  of which I happened to be a member;  and upon my .shoulders wjis laid tho  startling and unexpected task of finding  a remedy. I made a special study of tlie  labor problem, and tho outcome was the  Compulsory Arbitration Act. It was  drafted in 1891, passed into law ia 1894,  and has been in practical operation for  the last four years. Being satisfied that  juiy half measure: would fail, I asked the  upper chamber, for we have one, to make  the experiment purely as an experiment;  jmd in that spirit they agreed to accept  the mejisure. The jiot has been successful beyond my utmost expectations.  The basis of the nature is this : One  of the most marvellous tendencies of the  time is the tendency to combination, felt  both by capital and labor. It avus per-  fectly useless to try to abolish this tendency, and so it seemed to me that it  was possible to utilize it in the interest  of both sides, as well jis of the genenil  public. The result of the experiment is  that every trade union of the slightest  importance is now registered under the  act. At the beginning of the year there  were registered 2") associations of employers and 107 trades unions. The  working of the system is such  that the  parties most concerned are impelled to  join it in their own interest, since by  registering they obtain the right to participate in the choice of officers, whereas  if they don't join, the legislation affecting  their interests goes on without them.  It might be of advantage to British  Columbia to study the workings of this  law, which has now had five years' trial.  Possibly some suggestions would bo  thereby obtained which might be applied  with advantage to our own province.  NEWS BY MAIL AND TELEGRAPH  Latly Smith, from whom the beleaguered town in Natal takes its name, was  a Spaniard. Her husband, sir Harry  Smith, was at one time governor of Cape  Colony. Many years before, during the  Peninsular war, a detachment of troops  commanded by him were occuping a captured Spanish town. Two beautiful  young Spanish girls of noble birth appealed to him for protection, which avjis,  of course, given. The young English officer fell in love with one of his charges,  and she became his wife, little thinking  that she would give her name to a little  South Afi'ican town which would be a  centre" of world-wide interest.  An Admirable Labor Organization.  S_ okano Review.  The presence in Spokane of president  S. B. Donnelly of the International Typographical Union will direct public attention to that admirable hibor organization.-  It is, perhaps, the most conservative  of  all the trades unions in this country, and  yet it is also the strongest and most successful.     It is to the credit of the I. T. U.  that no one ever hears of its officers dragging the organization into the doubtful  arena of partisan politics.    No one ever  hearsof the members of subordinateuuious  resorting   to   violence.       They   accomplish     their      ends     by     lawful,     intelligent   action,    and    employers     all  over    the    United     States     are     glad  to put their composing rooms under the  union, because  they feel  that iu return  for fair wages they will receive fair treatment and efficient service, their newspapers will be printed  on time 305 days in  the year,  and  their materials and machinery will be well  cared for.    As a result, employe and employer enjoy mutual  respect and  confidence, and each is glad  to advance the other's prosperity.    Indicative of the strength and quiet influence  of the International Typographical Union  is the fact that, with the single exception  of a Los Angeles paper, every daily journal of note  or  influence on the Pacific  coast is under the union.  In Kentucky, the Democrats claim that  Goebel, their candidate for governor, wjis  elected by 4000 plurality, and the Republicans are making like claims for Taylor,  their candidate. Both sides are charging  fraud, and the official count may hot  even decide who will be the next  governor.  General Wheaton successfully landed  his expedition at Linsayaa, west of  Djigupau, against considerable opposition  without casualties.  English Miners Arrive.  The rear guard of the English repi-e-  sentatives of the mining companies in the  Rand has straggled into London0by the  last steamship arriving from Cape Town.  Its leitders give a fantastic and dramatic  account of the_dosing scenes at Johannesburg when the mining camps, crushing mills and the "Gold Hunters' City"  were abandoned by the English residents;.  The evacuation had been in progress for  ���w��p_^- before the final��� signal ,'for���,war.  iinu t-heu the English rear* guard, the  confidential advisers and trusted employees of every great mining corporation, were told to go. The richest  goldfields in the world, with the costliest  mechanism for crushing and chemical  treatment of sandstone, conglomerate  and deep-level mining, were left under  the charge of foreign underlings and native servants. Palatial residences were  turned over to the caretakers and the  oecupjuits locked and barred the front  doors and drove to the station, convinced  tliat the furniture, art treasures, etc.,  would be looted before the end of the  war. Strange as had been the mushroom  growth of the English niining city with  it& tawdry splendor, its sudden desertion  was grotesque, showing the marvelous  vicissitudes of human fortune.   -A-Born Naooleon.  The campaign of the Boers shows rc-  markjible strategical talent. It is, of  course, impossible to say at this distance  as to who ib responsible for their movements, but the man who mapped out  the Boer campaign is a military genius. A short review of their tactics will  prove this. Throwing apparently their  strongest and best-equipped commando  into Natal, they diverted attention, Jmd,  before the Rritish were aware of what  was luippening, Mafeking Mas surrounded by n part of geneia! Cronjo's  force. Then, when British attention was  centred on Mafeking, commander All*  richc, with ,8000 Free Staters, crossed the  border near Jjicobsdal and surrounded  Kimberley. This last was certainly a  stiokeof genius; for if Kimberly and  Cecil Rhodes, who is cooped up tliere at  dresent, should fall into the hands of the  Boers, England would havo to pay a ransom tlmt would moan absolute independence for both the Fvee State Jind the  Transvaal.    Want to Follow the Dip.  Before judge Forin in ehjimbers yes-  terday application was made by the defendants in the case of Bniden vs. the  American Boy Mining Company, for Security for costs. The order was made.  This is a ease in whieh Braden, as owner  of the Treasure Vault mineral claim, is  seeking to set aside the crown grant to  the American Boy mineral claim and re- ;  strain the American Boy company from  working the American Boy vein, the apex  of which it is claimed i.s on the Treasure  Vault ground. The Treasure Vault is an  1891 location, and under the Aliuera! Act  of that yejvr its owners have the right to  follow the dip of any veins that may  have their apex within the side lines of  their ground.  To Get All That Was Asked For.  Mayor Neelands and city clerk Strachan  had au interview yesterday with Hon. J.  Fred Hume upon unsettled business matters between the city aud the provincial  government. As a result of their interview they were informed that the provincial government had decided to pay  the account of Mrs. Gilbert for hospital  attendance upon pauper patients from  theCrow's Nest railway construction. The  accounts of W. F. Teetzel <fc Co. and doctors LaBau & Forin for drugs and medical treatment upon the same' account are  recerving the government's attention.  With respect to the promised order-in-  council vesting in the city the approach  to the city wharf, and the land on both  sides to the width of Hall street, the  minister of mines stated that he was of  the opinion that the desired order-in-  council had beeu passed by the executive.  He was present at the meetings of the  executive when the matters advanced by  the city were discussed, and his recollection was that every icquest made was  granted. The matter of the sewer pipe  which was to be turned over to the city  was being attended to by the minister of  finance, but Mr. Hume's recollection of it  was that the -executive had decided to  meet the wishes of the city in every particular, and turn over what pipe remained  jind give the'eity an order for any monies  which had ,been received on account of  the pipe sold.

As  soon jis an upraise is made, Avhicli will be  in about two weeks, the" Avorking force  Avill be increased to 50 men. The Rambler-Cariboo is not now and never has  been affected by the prevailing labor  trouble-. The mine has been worked on  business principles, and the management  has neA-er considered $.j.50 for eight  hoTvrs" "wSrlc-too Touch under the "circumstances. The property hits been strictly  a ''grass root" mine, de\'eloped from the  pi'oceeds of its own product-ion, aud paying dividends, too.  The Tramway Company's Bluff Called,  The attempt of the tramway company  to blufl the city out of $800 for a roadway across five lots to tho Nelson At Fort  ���Sheppard depot has failed. The company's action in barractuliug the roadway ��ui**cd the merchants of Xelson a  gieat deal of inconvenience btit otherwise failed in its object. Dave .MeBeath,  the best roadniaker iu Kootenay, i*> now  putting in another road whieh avi'11 ensure the merchants of Nelson an outlet  to the Xelson Ac Fort Sheppjird depot  without paying the tramway company  one cent. The cost of tho road now-  building will be borne by the piovincial  government, the Nelson & Fort Sheppard  Railway Company, and by public sub-  *>criptions. Alderman .Fletcher interested  himself in the building of the new road,  and had the satisfaction of seeing that  not a cent went to the train way company  by its bluff. The tramway company has  downed alderman Fletcher several times,  but tliis is one in which he downed tho  ti-amway company.  A Million Dollar Trust.  CoiX'miha, November 9.- ~G. O. Buchanan, Kiislo's Avealthy lumberman,  arrived here yesteiday. He luis perfected the organization of n lumber syndicate whieh will have its* headquarters  in Columbia. A capital nf $1,000,000 is  said to be behind the enterprise. E\'ery  mill in the Boundary as well as unutilized sites have been secured and all timber lands tributary. It is promised,however, that the price o�� lumber is nob to be  advanced, but rather the contrary,  - I  ti 2  THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON, B.C., FRIDAY," NOVEMBER 10, 1899.  B  H31  The Great Removal Sale  GOES   MBRRIL.Y   OIN  B  B  B  From morning till night our store is crowded with buyers eager for the  bargains which here invite everyone, man, woman or child. The business transacted during the last three weeks has exceeded our most s.'inguine anticipations. Ifc  would not have done so had not the values been right. But now comes the most  interesting part of the ssle. Carpenters and masons still claim the right of way in  our new premises, wliich will make it necessary to postpone our removal one week.-  During this week we will oiler the balance of our stock of mjintles���41 in number���  at prices that will discount anything we have heretofore attempted. These goods  are fresh from the best manufacturers, and are the most stylish giirments of the  kind shown this season. We still have an immense range of ladies' suits, dress  goods, collarettes, ruff's, gloves, corsets, underskirts, etc. We consider it no trouble  to show goods, and will not force you to buy.    These goods sell themselves.  w  w  MARTIN O'REILLY & CO.  %  BANK OF  B. O.  BUILDING, NELSON.  <=��.<=-�����  ���&.&1  T_I!_S*IV_S   0__3"*E_:  _F  OVER 100. PAIRS JUST TO HAND  ALL WEIGHTS; AND.

The streets of Nelson are for all the  people, and not for tlie exclusive use of  the  train Avay coinpany.    For the privilege of using the streets, tlie tramway  company has agreed to keep certain portions of the streets in so good a condition'"!  that no loss or injury can resulfc to others  Avho may htiv-e occasion to use them.   If  the company's rails cannot be crossed by  wagons Avithout danger of  injury to the  Avagon, then the company is at fault, and  Hie mayor should see that the terms of  F. A. .Wood op, Sandon, manager of  the Last Chance, mine, is iu Vancouver.  He is reported-as saying,that the Silver-  Lead Mines Association do not intend to  bring in alien miners. If that is a state-  . mentof fact, the association had .better  cancel its advertising contracts Avith  American ueAVspapers and AvithdraAV its  orders for men from the Seattle employment agencies*;.  As an alien .manager of ix, foreign  mining company,,Mr. Wood might state  how long his.company intends to deprive  ��he-- province * of British Coli^bi^ofc  revenue it fairly- owes as* a' return, for  past favors.    "- -   '  The owners of the Last Chance, a  Slocan mine that has paid from tlie  grass-roots, have'not invested in British.  Columbia a dollar of the thousands that  they have avou here. Instead, they- invest all "their -winnings in the United  States. ��� Yet there jite no louder shouters  against the eight-hour laAV, and the.'  people of. Bi'itish Columbia, generally,  than these self-same "beggars on horseback." '   It is.stated that the people of- a neighboring.town are to be coerced into supporting the mine managers' contention  for the $3 Avage by threats that the oue  company interested in the fight in that  -section���aviII���start���a���company���store-  in the toAvn unless the business men  declare themselves opposed to the mine  workers.

Trout Lake Topic.  For the past two weeks preparations  have been going on on a large scale for the  commencement of an active campaign of  development iu the Trout Lake district.  Never before in its history has there been,  at this season of the year, so feAv idle men  around town, and never before has tliere  been such an extensive scheme of devel-.  ment planned as next winter is likely to  see cji rried ou t. All the properties which  haA-e concluded to become shippers during the coming season are, packing up  supplies, the quantity of, which, .would  lead an observer to form the opinion tliat  they are intending to employ large forces  of men. Although it is by no means certain Avhat amount of skilled labor each  mine Avill employ, still from information  gleaned from responsible parties the fol-  loAving computation Avill be found to be  well Avithin the mark:  Silver Cup  35  Sunshine  5  Towser  12  Nettie L  23  Silver Queen  .. li  St. Elmo  3  .Silver Bolt :  5  Silver Bell '.... ��  Beatrice .;   12  Old Uoldand Primrose  0  Rob Roy'   4  May Bee  8  Othei properties ;  30  Total .......: 151  Of course this calculation is based on  the present capacity of most of these  mines to employ labor. The Silver Cup  is an exception, however, and if worked  to its utmost capacity could easily find  find.Avork for 150 men.  The Nettie L, the moment the long  crosscut is completed, Avill find; employment for an increased force of men, as  Avill also the Mjiy Bee nnd adjoining  properties.  Qas.Engines,Using Producer Gas.  The entire operation of a large .shop;by  gas engines using producer gas is. new in  this country, and the first instance deserves special notice.   The: produqers. are  of the Taylor pattern, using, rice coal--  the smallest and cheapest size of anthi-a-,  cite���and. the plant is a. simple and* com-.;  pact one, taking up much less, space, and;  requiring far less; labor and: attention  than would steam boilers furnishing p-the  same power.   The working; of . the plant-  thus far has been entirely- satisfactory,  and the records show a consumption .of  only 1.1 pounds of the rice coal per horsepower hour, Avhile they average: duty of  the. engines is equaL to 22 peiv cent of; the  theoretical   efficiency   of   the  fuel .consumed, i These.I'esiilts; would* have been  considered impossible  only a few years  ago; but they are uoav attained, not in  liny special .'trial,-but under .the conditions  of regular daily   service.   They   reflect  great credit upon the designers and^'constructors of the plant.   We may add-that  in   its construction-  machinery is  nsed  wherever possible, so that the"  operation,  is largely automatic, and.labor is reduced  to the loAvest possible point.   This isario-  ther instance shoAving the great economies  possible  in  furnishing fuel  to our  cities in the form of gas, instead- of coal.  ��� What can be so successfully done in, one  large industrial, establishment can be.carried' out equally well* on a great scale  ' Avhile  the economy .and convenience of  transporting and delivering the gas will;  add to tiie gain.

THESE SHARES A(|E DESIRABLE BECAUSE
The Noonday is virtually a developed
mine. The work done upon the property consists of a main tunnel, which
has been run in on the vein for 226
feet, and the vein where cross-cut
shows an average width of from 8 to 10
feet. The vein matter is made up of
about 20 inches of clean ore, the- remainder being composed chiefly of
concentrating ore which samples 60
ounces silver. From the main tunnel
level there has been shipped 520 tons
of clean ore, which netted the company,
after deducting freight and treatment
charges, over $1000 to the car of from
18 to 20 tons. From the main tunnel
an upraise has been driven for 100 feet
and a stope-75 feet long opened up.
About 150 .feet below the main tunnel
a cross-cut is being run. This tunnel
is now.in 125,feetand it(is estimated
that the lead exposed in the main tunnel will be reached in another 30 feet.
A force of 18 men is at present employed upon the property, all but three
of whom are employed on development.
The company has another three cars of
clean ore ready for shipment.

A meeting of the members of the building committee of the Kootenay Luke  General Hospital Society wjis held yesterday for the purpose of opening the tenders for the supply of heaters to the new  hospitiil. Tenders were received from  the Lawrence Hardware Company and  the Vancouver Hardware Company. The  committee decided to lay the matter over  until the directors meet next week.  B��st Roslyq Coal $9JO par Ton  Leave Orders With CaSV-       Qamble   &   O'Reilly,   Agent S  In view of the difficulty attending the  delivery of sufficient coal over the Caim-  dian Pacific lines for local consumption,  Gamble & O'Reilly have ordered a consignment of coal from Roslyn, Washington. Those wanting coal had better  phice their orders early, as every ton of  coal coming into Nelson is contracted for  before it reaches the city.  Harry Mui'ton, the old man whose admittance into the Old Men's Home at  Kamloops was urged upon the provincial  government by the city council, is still  jm inmate of the Kootenay Lake general  hospital. The trouble appejirs to be that  the order for Miu-tou's admittance, which  was promised, has not arrived from Vic-  toriji.  Louis Ilartwill and Pat Casey, who ai'e  making the excavation on Josephine street  for the water main, cieated a sensation  yesterday by their cjirelessnoss in blasting. They loaded two holes and fired  them. Tlie first shot threw off whatever  protection there wjis ;igainst flying rock,  and the second spread rock in every direction. The Clarke hotel got ji perfect  broadside of flying rock, sevei'jil lights of  glass being broken and the rustic in the  front of the building being smashed iu.  Glass was also broken in the Scroggs  block and the Victoria block, Jind rock  thrown Jicross the top of the buildings  over on to Baker street.  The Tribune depends on the two. ex-  piess compjinies doing business in Nelson  to" aid in the prompt delivery of its  edition to news agents. The oue does its  work well, and never a complaint is heard  of failure to deliver papers promptly on  time. As much cannot be said of the  other.    The attempt of the directors" of the  tramway company to drive a hard bargain with the city over the right of way  for the road to the Nelson & Fort Sheppard l'ailway depot is bearing its legitimate fruit. The city engineer has now  decided upon the performance to the letter of the tramway company's contract  with tlie city. He has notified the engineer of the 'train way "company that its  tracks on Front, Water, Baker, and Stanley streets are an impediment to traffic,  and that they must be put in proper  shape. It begins to look as if the directors of the tramway company had woke  up the wrong passenger.  The JjYont street warehouse of the  Lawrence Hardware Company is Hearing  completion. It is the largest in Kootenay's  wholesale center.   W. H. Gallon, for many years foreman  of the Victoria Colonist, was in Nelson  yesterday on liis way to Kaslo.1 Tt is  hiuted that he may become the publisher  of a Conservative "newspaper in that  town.    Provincial constable S. A. Kelly arrived in Nelson from Lardo on Wednesday evening. He brought in n, woman  named Rita, who was committed by  stipendiary magistrate Carney for medical examination upon a charge of insanity. The woman's other name is not  known. She arrived in Argenta hist  summer, and ran the restaurant_in_Ha!Ty_  Williams' floating hotel. Local medical  men who examined the woman yesterdjiy  are not yet convinced whether she is insane or not.  The case against Robert Kerr, contractor, for a breach of the Water Clauses  Act, in connecting with the waterworks  system of the city without the consent of  the corporation, was called before mayor  Neelands yesterday. S. S. Taylor appeared for the defendant Kerr and W. A.  Galliher for the private prosecution. It  wjis suggested to mayor Neelands that, as.  he was the chief magistrate of the city,  it would probably be more satisfactory  to luive someone else try the case. The  mayor agreed with this and the case was  adjourned until Saturday afternoon..  Joseph Maslonka was brought before  stipendiary magistrate Turner yesterday upon ji charge of stealing 53 cords of  wood from his brother Albert Masloiikn.  As the magistrate was obliged to go to  Kaslo, the case was adjourned till Saturday morning.  James DjiIIjis, a flourishing hotelkeeper  of Greenwood, is in Nelson. Yestei-day  he superintended the putting in of four  of the finest panes of phite glass in the  province. One pane, 9 by 10 feet, was  put in W. F. Teetzel & Co.' store in the  Victoi'iji block, and three, 10 by 12 feet,  were put in the Houston block.  HOTEL ARRIVALS.  At the Phair.���H. It. Stovel and J.  Walkei, Kaslo; A, Whealler, Kaslo; J.
