 l,-*-  K  MACNITUDE OF MONDAY'S FIGHT  Boers. Suffered Heavy Losses.  London, November 8.���The Boers acknowledge having  suffered  hctivy losses  in men  and horses  in  previous battles.  General .Tan  Kock,  wlio  was  second in  command  in  the Transvaal 'forces, and  Avho was injured in  the btittlc of Elandslaagte, died in tho hospital at Ladysmith  on Monday night.    Little light is thrown  on tho actual  situation  by the news at  hand todtiy.    The magnitude of Monday's  fight, however, is more than evident. Virtually thi'ce fictions  were .-raging simultaneously; but it  is  obvious that the intention to roll back the Orange Free State  troops was not achieved.'   The correspondent of the Daily News-tit Ladysmith,  telegraphing. Tuesday,  says:  ���"Dr. Hor-  nabook, while searching  for the body of  lieutenant Clapham on Umbulwanti hill,  which was  in  possession of the enemy,  met many Boers.    On  stating the object  , of his quest, he was kiudly received.  The  consensus of opinion among the'Boers', he  thinks, is  that they are sick of lighting  and would like  to throw up the sponge.  They said their.heavy.loss yesterday was  chiefly due to our artillery fire."  Descrpitions of the Battle.  London, November 2.���A dispatch to  the Daily Telegraph froni Ladysmith,  filed Monday night, giving a description  of the battle, sjiys: "A similar stampede  occurred to lieutenant-colonel Grimwood's  column in the Bulwan side; the ammuiii-  tion was lost, but our infantry quite held  their own. It was a sei'ious misfortune  that the Powei-f ill's bluejackets were not  summoned soon er,��������� as the result of the  engagement would have been different."  London, November 3.���The Daily News  has a dispatch this morning 'from Ladysmith, dated Tuesday at 10:30 a.m., which  gives the first independent account of  the cutting off of lieutenant-colonel  .Carleton's column iu the engagement at  ��� Farquhar's farm. The correspondent  says: "The column was sent out Sunday  night, made it wide detour, and reached  -.the.: spurs of the Drakensbuig before  dawn. Colouei-'Carleton stormed the  heights with the bayonet, and maintained  his position ag.iinst grctit odds until his  ammunition was exhausted and surrender  liad become inevitable. Nearly two  hundred had then been killed and  wounded."       Casualties at Far _nar's Farm.  London, November 3.���At 12.40 a. m.  the war office issued tlie text of the dispatch which is dated Ladysmith, November 2, 10 a.m., giving the list of casualties  among the officers, which is as follows :  Royal artillery���Killed, lieutenant J. T.  McDougall; wounded, major John Daw-  kins-, slightly, lieutenant Harold Belcher,  severely. King's lloyal rifles- Killed,  major "\V. T. Myers, lieutenant H S. Mars-  den, and lieutenant T. L. Forster;  wounded, major Henry E. Bnchanau-Jlid-  doll and lieutenant II. C. Johnson, both  severely. Royal Irish iVusilcer***���  Wounded, Captain. G. B. IL Rice and captain W. B. Silver, both severely. Gloucestershire regiment���Wounded, captain S.  Willcock, captain B. O. Fyfe, and captain  F.   S.   Stayner,   all   severely. Natal  Mounted rifles���Killed, lieutenant William Chapman. Medical corps���Killed,  major Edward Gwiy. The list of the  names of the non-commissioned officers  aud men killed and wounded is promised  tomorrow.       Three Hundred Killed and Wouded.  London, November 2.���General White  .ha11! cabled the war office, tluit in the e n-  giigement on Farquhar's farm, near Ladysmith on October 30th, when lieutenaut-  coloncl Carleton's column was compelled  to surrender, six officers were killed tind  nine wounded. Among the non-commissioned officers and men the casualties  were 54 killed and 231 wounded. General  White -promibes a list of the missing  later.  Wi(^^^  FRIDAY MOBBING, NOVEMBER 3, 1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR; WEEKLY, $2.  A report that a, Boer force from Koom-  atpoi-t is making its way through Zulu-  land is held to indicate an intention to  seize the railway between Colenso and  Pietermaritzburg, if it has not already  been seized. This, however, will soon be  known, as armoi'ed trains are patrolling  tho line. The real question now for the  British public is, can general White hold  out another ten days or two weeks, until  the urmy corps nrrives. Less anxiety  would be felt on his account were it not  that every day seems to bring a fresh  list of casualties.' At best, the coining  week must prove a critical tind iinxious  time.  The Times this morning, commenting  editorially upon the fact that news, appears to an'ive in Belgium from South  Africa from'.some channel uncontrolled  bythe British censorship,, reminds the  government that information valuable to  the enemy can similarly leak from Europe  to the Transvaal. It suggests thtitcthe  government should fully exercise their  right, under existing conventions, if auy  .such channel has been for special reasons  left open, and it appears to think there  may be some truth in yesterday's Berlin  and Ptuis stories.  PHILIPPINE COMMISSION REPORT  ENGAGED IN A SER  Opinion of a Fighting General.  London, Novembei' 3.���Lord Frederick  Roberts of Candahar, commander of the  forces in Ireland, while reviewing the  tj'oops Jit Kilkenny, said : "It is useless  to disguise the fact that we are engaged  in a 'very serious war; a war which will  put our resources and courage to a severe  test."  Apparently extensive preparations are  in progress at De Aar, Cape Colony, for  the concentration of general Buller's  army. Thousauds of mules Jire corraled  in that neighborhood and transport ran-  tei ial is being hurried up from the south.  According to another despatch, the  naval brigade tit Ladysmith has mounted  four more guns from Durban.  The report comes fiom Rome that Portugal will permit the landing of British  troops at Lorenzo Marque/. This coincides with the views strongly prevalent  in some quarters here that the British  invasion of Transvaal will be made from  that point. Themoiniug papers are divided iu opinion jis to whether general  -White's list of casualties include the  losses of licntenant-colouel Carleton's  column befoi'e its surrender. The preponderance of opinion is inclined that  those are not included, since if they *were  general White would probably have mentioned the tact.  To President McKinley.  Washington, November 2.���In accordance Avith an understanding  reached at  the conference at the white house yesterday,  the  Philippine commission   today  subihitted  to   president    McKinley the  preliminary report which it had promised  to prepare.    The commission tells how it  concluded the task entrusted  to it, hearing statements from all classes of  people  in Manila jis  to  the capabilities of   the  Filipinos for self-government, the habits  and customs of the  people, and also the  ..establishment' of  municipal  government  in many towns. The report states :   "The  Filipinos are not a nation, but a varia-  gated assembly of  different tribes, aud  their       loyalty       is       still      of     the  tribal    type."     Concerning    their    in-  iutcllectual    capacity,    the    commission  says:    "As to the general intellectual capacities of the  Filipinos, the commission  is disposed to rate them high.    But, excepting in  a  limited  nuniber of persons,  these capacities have not beeu developed  by education or expeiience.    The masses  of  the   people   are   uneducated.     That  intelligent public opinion on which popu-  lar government rests  does  not exist in  the Philippines, and it cannot exist until  education 1ms elevated the masses, broadened their intellectual horizon, tmd disciplined their judgment. The most that can be  expected"of them is to co-operate Avith  the Americans in the administration  of  the   general affairs   from  Manila   as  a  centie.  aud   to   undertake,   subject]}  to  American couti'ol or guidance as may be  found necessary, the administration  of  provincial and municipal affairs.    In. this  way   American   soveieiguty   over    the  archipelago will prove a political boon to  these people.     Should our power by any  fatality be withdrawn, the commission  believes*   that    the   government of the  Philippines���would -speedily- lapse���into  anarchy, which Avould  excuse, if   it  did  not necessitate, the intervention of other  powers and the division  of the islands  among them."  The Situation in the Philippines.  ManiI/A, November 2.���Aguinaldo litis  issued a proeUunjition announcing that  the American congress meets in December to decide whether "the imperialistic  policy" and "this bloody woik" is to be  contiuued. IIo exhorts his soldiers to  conduct themselves so that congress will  consider them worthy of independence,  and i equests* the priests to abstain from  politics and to redeem the church from  the bad name the misdeeds of the friars  have given it. A crisis in the Filipino  cjibinet is predicted as the result of the  lesignations of Patei-no and Buenacami-  no, two of the Filipino lejiders who have  lost the confidence of the rabid revolutionists. Some Filipinos Avho started to  come to Manila with the Spaniards received a message from general Otis saying the women and children would be  given protection, but the men who had  cast their lot with the insurgents must  lemain with the insurgents. The party  included the brother of general Luna,  who was jissassinated by the guard at  Againtildo's house, with his fiimily, aud  the Filipino secretary of the treasury aud  family. The families returned to Tailac.  The Americans occupy Iloilo and the adjoining towns of Jaro Jind Molow with  4000 men, consisting of the Sixteenth and  Twenty-sixth regiments, two battalions  of the Nineteenth regiment, a detachment  of the Sixth legimeut, and a battery of  the Sixth artillery. TJie insurgent foi'ce  is iioav supposed to be between 3500 aud  5000 armed men and many more unarmed.  Their lines are about eight hundred yards  from Jaro, wliich is occupied by the  J Twenty-sixth regiment.  THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STORY  A Boer Account of the Situation.  Paris, November 2.���The Ha vas Agency  this evening publishes the following, extraordinary dispatch, which the agency  says came through its correspondent at  Brussels: "Capetown.���The news of the  Boers two victories' around Ladysmith  has created considerable excitement  among the Afrikanders, avIio do not conceal tlieir joy. Sir -Alfred Milner, the  British high commissioner, is much perturbed at their attitude. General White,  in these two engagements, lost about 350  men killed, Avounded and prisoners. The  second victory avjis Avon by the Free  Staters, commanded-..by Lucas Meyer,  wlio seized Colenso, thus cutting off the  retreat of general White, Avho is surrounded. The investment of Ladysmith  is complete-and the Boers are masters of  Pietermaritzbiirg and the Durban railway. News lias .reached general White  that Mafeking is closely beseiged and  that the Boers; have successfully repulsed  the sorties. The surrender of Mafeking  is expected. It is also confirmed that the  Free Staters have seized Colesburg."  London, November 2.���The secretary  of the Avar office, who was .shown the  CapetoAvn "dispatch of the Ha vas Agency,  said the statements made Avere utterly  baseless. Brussels, Avhere the Ha vas  dispatch originated, is the headquarters  of Dr. Leyds, the diplomatic agent of the  Transvaal,, and it is .thought the Capetown dispatch may be an exaggerated  Boer version of the recent fighting.  The Losses of a Year.  Washington, November '2.���A i-recapitulation of the casualties in the  actions and deaths in the regular and  volunteer armies between May, 1898, itnd  June 30th, 1899, contained in the annual  report of the adjutant-general of the  army, shoAVS a grand total of 10,076 men.  THE JEFFRIES-SHARKEY FIGHT  For the Heavyweight Championship.  New York, November 2.���Who Avill  win?   This is the question Aviheh  sporting men Jire asking each  other tonight.  This  city is  full  of sporting men, and  they represent nearly every city or town  of prominence from  the  Pacific to  the  Atlantic, and from the Gulf up into far-  northern Canada.   Jim Jeffries and Tom  Sharkey will meet tomorrow night in the  arena of the Coney Island Sporting Club  for a 25-round battle, the result of which  Avill decide for the time being the heavyweight pugilistic championship   of the  Avorld.   Jeffries, by his defeat of Fit_-  simmons, earned the title of champion of  the Avorld iu  the heavyweight class of  pugilists.     Many    of   those   avIiq   have  ttickled the game of chance say that the  big   fellow   Avill  be   defeated   and  the  championship avj'11  revert to the Irish-  American stiilor.    On the other hand, the  big Californian boilermaker has a host of  friends.    They are sanguine  of Jeffries'  success, and their_firm_belief thjit_he_Avill  win  is  backed  up  Avith dollars.    Many  stiange stories have been told of Jeffries  since he Avent to England  and since  his  return.   Billy Delauey of Sau Francisco,  who trained Corbett for his successful  ventuie against the  then heavyweight  champion,  John   L.  Sullivan,  and  Avho  brought Jeffries east to defeat Fit/sim-  mons, aa'Iio whipped his  former protege  (Corbett)   at Carson  City, said   today:  "My man (Jeffries) will be heard from to  good advantage tomorrow night,    1  told  you five months ago, before he met Fitz-  simmons,  that  it  was  a  sure thing for  him.    Now, take my advice, don't Avorry  about all those stories which you hear  about .Jim's sickness. He's all right; he'll  win sure."   They arrived here late  this  afternoon and immediately  repaired  to  the Vanderbilt hotel, where Jeffries Avill  rest until tomorrow morning.  Seeks Belief.  Chicago, November 2,���Liabilities  amounting to $5,000,000 tire scheduled in  a petition filed hi the United States district couit today by Sevier Doty, a capitalist, avIio seeks relief under the National  Bankruptcy Act. The petitioner is president of the Northern Fuel Company  and the Lehigh Coal & Coke Company.  His scheduled assets aggregate $100,000,  consisting prinoipally of capital stock.  The heavy liabilities result from the fail-  uie in 1S93 of several large coal companies in which Mr. Doty AVas interested.  Much of the indebtedness results from  lesponsibility, Avhich Mr. Doty took himself, by endorsing notes for other persons.  The creditors aie not secured except by  the notes Avhich they hold.  A Bulletin.  New York, November 2.���Dixon got  the decision over Curley at the end of the  25th lound.  BOUNDARY MINES WELL TREATED  By the Canadian Pacific.  Chief-engineer Tye, who has charge of  construction Avork on the Robson-Pentic-  ton branch of the Canadian Pacific, arrived in Nelson yesterday. He says that  owing to the contractors' inability to se-  'cure steel, the road for tho present has  been stopped nt Greenwood. As soon as  the steel arrives it will be continued to  Midway; but it is simply a matter of  conjecture Ayhpn the steel can be obtained. The great bulk of the business  for the branch will originate Avith the  mines ai'ound Greenwood and Phceriix,  and'the company some time ago decided  that it Avas more important to build  spurs to the mines from Eholt and Greenwood than to carry the main line through  to Midway.  In speaking of the company's action in  building the spurs to the mines, chief -engineer Tye said that he never before saAV  such uniform treatment by any railway  company of the mines of any district as  avjis ..'accorded to the likely mines of  Boundary district by the Canadian Pacific. Virtually, every property of immediate promise in the district aviis being  tapped by .the spurs from Eholt and  Greenwood. Not only Avere the spurs  built right lip'to the dumps, but in several instances the grading of the roadbed  had disclosed, mineral showings Avhich  greatly enhanced the market value of  the property itself.  Although the Robsou-Peuticton branch  was an unusually expensi\re piece of  railroad work, there Avill not be more  than 10 per cent difference between the  actual cost of the same and the company's  estimate. The road Avhen completed���including the long tunnel���will''Stand', the  railway company an expenditure of  $4,000,000 for "a mileage'of 125 miles.  till operating chiefly tit the betid of Ten-  mile creek, has secured an option on the  Daisy and Black hawk claims from J. M.  Rue and D. Graham. The sum involved  is $7000.   The Battle Renewed.  London, NoA'ember 3.���A special despatch from Ladysmith, dated Tuesday,  gives further details repardiug the renewal of the bombardment. TJie Boers,  .having reoeeupied.their old positions, remounted their big guns. Their firing Avas'  accurate, but almost harmless. Some of  the troops Avere slightly injured by splin-  tei'S. -Lieutenant-Egerton and his men  from the Powerful did splendid work"and  quickly silenced the Boer guns.  Has He Gone to Ottawa for Advice ?  Victoria, November 2.���[Special to  The Tribune].���What little interest is  shown in provincial politics just now centers in the visit of lieutenant-governor  Melnnes to Ottawa. The foundation for  the suspicion that he has gone there for  advice bodes no good to his constitutional adyisers here, avIio do not appear  to have been consulted about his trip.  LATE SLOCAN LAKE MINING NEWS  Mine Owners Meeting Announced.  Neav Denver, November 2.���Another  meeting of the mine ownei-s is billed for  the 7th instant. Judging from the"  activity displayed on several of theyprop-  M 4 ***  ei^ies in the jissociation, their managers  are evidently anticipating the action of  the meeting aud getting ready for the  expectant rush.  Additional buildings are being erected  at the Hartney, on Silver mountain, forming commodious and substantial winter  quarters. The management are Avorking  on business principles, and have this  Aveek increased the force. It is the intention to keep a stjiff of ten men developing the property throughout the  winter. In the new avoj kings commenced further down the hill, two inches  of clean ore is showing in the bieast,  Avith indications of widening.  The OAvners of the Mollie Hughes arc  running a crosscut to tap tlie main Arein  at a lower depth. In the drift jibove ore  is .showing for the entile length of 100  feet. The propei ty is iu good shape.  ___\V.__ V.__ Varnerjias secured a contract  for several hundred feet of additional  Avoi'k on the Madi&on. It consists of  drifting and raising. The same company  are interested in the .Sovereign.  Operations Avill be commenced on the  Sarah Jane claim near the town next  week. It has a strong ledge exposed by  surface cuts.  There is a lack of puck horses for the  business offering at tlie foot of tho lake.  A pack train of supplies was sent up to  the Capclla group, on Goat mountain, yesterday, upon which woi-k Avill be prosecuted throughout the winter. Suitable  quarte'rs have been erected.  The Chapleau has eight men employed  putting up the new winter quai'tors,  which are capable of accommodating a  large force. J. M. William��, avIio is operating the pioperty, is on his Avay back  from England, and on his ariival a full  force of miners will be put on.  The Iron King group, on Evans creek,  on the Avest side of the hike, lias passed  under the control of Bruce White and his  associates, who purpose developing Avluit  is practically new and virgin tenitory.  The surface showing on the group is immense, being upwards of 100 feet in  Avidth of ledge matter and quart/., Avith  a heavy iron capping, which carrion excellent values in gold.  The Black Prince lead has been tapped  by the crosscut on the Two Friends  claim at about 100 feet from the sinftice.  Drifting is now being done on the vein,  Avhich parallels that of the Two Fi tends,  and from which sc\'eral carload1, of oi'c  Avere shipped.  C. W.

EXPORTS FROM PORT OF NELSON  Show -targe Gains.  The returns of the port of Nelson -for  the month of October, which AA'ere completed yesterday, show that theexports  of the district have kept pace with the  imports, the gain in each instance being  o\'er oue hundred per cent as compared  Avith the corresponding month in 1.898.  For tho mouth just closed the gross vjilue  of the exports Avas $83,405, of which all���  save $1910 worth... of mjinufucturcs���  represented the value of the mineral exports. The bulk of this Avas copper  matte and bullion from the Hall Mines  .smelter, valued at $51,005. The gold bullion exports'Avere'valued at $27,500; the  balance being made up of 710 tons'of  coke, valued at $2857, and 21 tons of coal,  valued at $43:  Tlie value of the exports for October,  1898, Avas $35,131, and aside from tlie fact  that, compared Avith October, 1898, the  past month shows an aggregate gain of  over $48,000, the most striking feature is  the A'lilue giA'en for the exports of gold  bullion. These exports represent the  gold bricks from mines in the vicinity of  Nelson Avhich have entered upon the  shipping list since October, 1S9S, and the  $27,500 credited to them is a distinct gJiin,  as there was no gold bullion AvhateArer  exported from Nelson in October, 1S98.

Thoii experience Avas that Avhon they hit  the market Avifch their goods they hit it-  big, but failures to catch the market  meant corresponding losses. Mr. Parsons  ii just two weeks out from Dawson, and  .iipc leaving he has been advised that a  shipment of potatoes which his firm got  into the Klondyke's capital sold at $500  and $000 a ton, Mr. Cholditch's star ex-  pi-iicnce avjis A\ith a $15,000 shipment  which his iirm took in about the close of  navigation. Jn the shipment was a small  (piantity of oats. They hit the market  right and realised enough to pay for the  entire .shipment.  Failure of a Private Bank.

The town wiis''at-first called Snubb's  Flat; later, the name was changed to  Darlington, as shall appear. As commonly happened in the territoi-y, the sitewjis  selected arbitrarily by the railroad company. This paternal organization was in  Ifi the habit of establishing a town on its  fc-A lines every twelve miles, i-egardless of  everything. Tlie practice avjis snid to  have originated with the chief engineer,  who got the idea from the rows of rivet  heads along a bridge-girder. The plan  was betmtifill in its simplicity, and greatly expedited the -preparation of the timetables, since exactly one hour was allowed passenger trains for making the distance between towns.  It may be supposed that the names for  the  new urban  creations wei'e prepared  at the company's central shops and sent  out along    with  the    material  for  the  .station  building, but such was not the  case    Tlie matter was ������ taken out of the  hands of the engineer, much to his disappointment, since he had intended to letter  ;     them A, B, C, and so on, and given into  i     charge of tlie financial committee.    These  j     worthy business men evolved the notion  |     of naming each town after tho man who  j     furnished tho company the land on which  .     to plant it, this ambitious candidate for  !     fame, of course, making the transfer for  |     the nominal sum of one dollar.  |     '  Snubb���the honorable Potcr J. Snubb  *     ���supplied  the local  litibitation jind the  1     name for Snubb's L^hxt.    Snubb had been  ";     in the legislature, or served on the jury  !   .or in some  legitimate way acquired" the  j     title of honorable,   lie considered himself  ^    a  man of parts,   though  he was of few  '-S*-words,  and he  posed as  a  plain,  blunt  citizen.    Though well-to-do, he was of a  frugal mind, and, when the weather permitted, always eschewed shoes and stockings.    He had some soft of theory about  absorbing  electricity from  the   mother  earth  in  so doing,  and  even  when he  visited the post-office���hoofed ib uptown,  in his own gi'aphic langtuige���he made it  a bootless "joui-uey.   There  wei-e quantities of electricity in the silo, he explained;  the ycarth was full of it.  For the fii*st year Snubb's Flat certainly grew and prospered. Snubb himself  wjis satisfied. "There's been a right  smart bit of building," ho remarked.  Most lines of business were repiesented.  One of the first enterprises on the ground  wjis the Snubb's Flat Torpedo, a fearless  weekly paper conducted by a man from  Iowa, named Boswick.  By the end of a twelvemonth the rail-  rp!_.4____iRail*zJn____^^  Flat through the sale of most of its lots.  At this time the bacillus of an evil thing  crept in. Nay, it was whispered that the  railrojid company actually promoted it  through' its hireling, the station agent.  This was nothing more nor less than ji  change of name for the place. Tlie  towns twelve miles to either side made  sport of the njune, and called the inhabitants "Snubb's Flatterers," or "Smibb-  ites." Finally the Torpedo took a stand  for a change. "It is unworthy our beautiful city," said the Torpedo. "Our  valued fellow-citi'/on, Pete Snubb, is a,  good man, and a great success as a reversed lightning-rod in yanking the electricity out of the earth, but he hasn't got  ji nice name."  A mass-meeting was called. * Boswick  was elected chairman. He had just risen  Jind sjiid, "Gentlemen, what is your  pleasure?" when a dark shadow noiselessly glided down thejiisleand took ji front  seat. It was Snubb. Melancholy had  marked him for her own. But even his  presence did not stay the iron hand of  sinister fate. Speechmaking began ; the  honorable D. J. K. Clark, tho leading  lawyer, made a speech. The meeting to  the last man (except Snubb) said openly  or to himself, "Yes, let u.s name it after  somebody who will do something for the  town!" Snubb slowly ros-e, turned and  looked at the cold faces behind him. But  there was no sympathy in any face. He  sat down agJiiu without a word.  The discussion which followed was  long and careful, and it was finally decided to reehristeu ^the place Darlington���a  pretty iiame, and, better, one borne by  M the honorable Sterling Darlington���the  millionaire senator from a neighboring  state.- He had the repjittitipn.of being  liberal, and it was expected that he would  ?*$*.

He  had drunk a republic's cup of ingiutitude  to the di'egs.  Fi'oin this time forwai'd 'a blight fell  upon the place, it was the blight tluit  so often settles upon a man with "expectations." Darlington was going to "do  something for the town"���why should it  do anything for itself? The Emigration  Promoting Association sent out no more  prose-poetry circulars to the hesitating  East. Even the Torpedo lost its accustomed vigor, and Boswick ceased to go  out of his wjiy to abuse his esteemed content poiuj'ies twelvenules to either side..  But there is a limit to all things; .so it  was that an end came to the patience of  the citizens. Two years had gone by,  and the senator had done nothing. He  had not even visited his namesake, nor so  much as written another letter, except  briefly to acknowledge the regular invi-  ttitions to be present sit the county fair  and the fourth of July celebration. And  these letters were signed "Sterling Darlington, per P." "Per P, forsooth!" exclaimed the citizens at last; "who is P?"  Finally the Torpedo, from printing his  speeches and laudatory editorials 'con-,  cerning him turned against.'hiin, aiid  another .mass-meeting was held to consider the mime of the town.  As Boswick arose to call the meeting  to order a foi-in floated in the door and  down the aisle. Need I say that it was  the form of Snubb ? D. J. K. Clark made  another speech. For volume of .sound  and piping hotness it was never equaled  iu the Territory. Sterling Darlington  got what he deserved. D. J. K., like the  others, had come with the intention of  selecting an absolutely new name for tho  town. But the silent, pathetic figure of  the godfather of the town was too much  for him, and for all present; the heart of  stone must have been moved thereby. A  resolution was passed unanimously to restore the name of Snubb's Flat. Then  tihey adjourned. Snubb ptissed out,  silent but not ungrateful. lie took,his  stand iu the middle of tlie public square,  A SNAP IN    '.  MINING.SHARES  and as he shook hands with his friends,  began to absoi-b a supply of electricity  for two years untouched.  A month later the Bureau of Geographical Names at Washington took up the  case of the town, threw out the Flat and  the possessive, and left it plain Snubb;  and Snubb it is to this day.

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 stiver. 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.
