 ii tmn^iT*uMfir:*m*���t^  k  AN ADMIRAL SENDS RELIEF TO  The Wreck of the Charleston.  Washington, November 14.���Admiral  Watson cables to the navy department  the following official report of the wreck  of the cruiser Charleston :    "Charleston  wrecked on  uncharted coral  reef three  miles northwest of Gtiinapa rocks, north  coast   of Luzon,  at  5:30  o'clock  on the  morning of November  2nd.    Everybody  safely landed on Kamiguina island  with  rifles  and two colts.     The natives  are  friendly.       McDonald    made   Lingayon  gulf in a sailing launch.    When  he left  he  had  had  no! opportunity for the examination   of    the    wreck.      Northeast  monsoon aud heavy sea  prevailing.-   Reports ship  struck easily, then  thumped  violently.    The fire room compartmont is  flooded ; the first watertight doors were  closed promptly.    The  ship lies  settled  aft, water one foot  from  name.    Well  out of water  forward; apparently very  steep bank.    Ten days' provisions landed.  Tlie Helena dispatched from Lingayon by  ���the Oregon to Kamiguina is due today."  There is a discrepancy iu the date of the  wreck    of   the  Charleston  as   given  in  admiral  Watson's   message  and  in  the  press dispatches.    It is probable that the  seventh instant-is'the correct date, and  Watson's dispatch was confused in transmission.���?  There was  some  surprise expressed that so long a time  had  elapsed  since the wreck before news  of  the fact  reached the navy department. It appears,  however, this delay was inevitable owing  to  the  isolated  position  of  the .wreck.  Kamiguina island is a small island lying  about north of Appari, which is the most  northerly point on  the island of Luzon.  It is distant about 150 miles  from  Lingayon gulf, where,are stationed the nearest  of the warships of Watson's fleet.   Watson appears to have acted at once upon  receipt of the news, for he  informed the  navy department  that he  cabled Hong  Kong to secure the  help  of experienced  wreckers to proceed at once to the scene  of  the wreck.  WEDNESDAY MOftNING   NOVEMBER 15   1899  5_=  -Wjgifr-  PtiBLtlSHBD AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILV (B_- MAIL) $6 A YEAR; WEEKLY. $2.  Don't Shout Until Out of the Woods.  Nkw YoiUv, November 14.���A dispatch  to the Tribune from London says: There  are signs of the recurrence of the spirit  of over-confidence in the certainty of the  success of the British arms, Avithout a  further setback or reverse to the British  troops. The situation surely is steadily  improving every- day with the arrival of  tho reinforcements at Cape Town and at  Durban, and also with the increasing  knowledge-that the Boers have made a  fatal mistake in scattering their commands at too mitiiy points, instead of-concentrating their forces against Kimberley  and Ladysmith, or marching, like Sherman, to the -sea and sweeping down "on  Durban.- The British campaign, however,"-  has not been won, and it full fortnight remains during which Kimberley may be  attacked and Ladysmith exposed to a  steady long-range fire. While the meagre news received from Natal and the  western border hVfavoiable, the best military writers in today's London journals  caution Englishmen against shouting until well out of the woods.  4,396,951  pounds of metallic copper and  237,951 ounces of silver.    The copper was  worth  at that time 12i cents per pound  and silver $1 pe,r ounce.    In March, 1888,  W. A. Clark of Butte, Montana, came into  possession of the United Verde, which at  that time had a reduction   plant of. 100  tons daily capacity.     In  the  following  May the furnaces were once more blown  in  under Mr.  Clark's management, and  then begau the successful history of tliese  mines.    From time to time additions and  improvements  were made  iu the plant,  and  at the present  time the property is  thoroughly  equipped  with modern machinery and labor-saving devices, which  have enabled it to make a  large output  at nominal cost.    The plant now has six  water-jacket furnaces, having a capacity  of 200 tons each, a reverbratory furnace of  ordinary  type,  one tilting furnace and  six converters.    A battery of ten boilers,  having  in the  aggregate a capacity  of  1500 horse power, furnishes power   for  these works.    A complete electric plant  lias  also    been   installed.      Cranes   and  travelers handle the matte, conveying it  from the furnaces to the converters and  also  carrying the  bullion from  the converters  to the   refining furnace.      Tlie  slag pots are handled by electric motors,  and everything about the mine and reduction   works is conducted on a  large  scale.    The mines  are making an annual  output approaching 40,000,000 pounds of  refined    copper    and   several   hundred  thousand ounces of silver, the enterprise  giving employment to nearly 1000 men.  IT IS BRAINS AGAINST CAPITAL  THE LATEST EBOM SOUTH AFRICA  In the Slocan.  Demands the Release of an Alleged Spy.  London, November 14.���A special dispatch from Capo Town, dated Friday,  November lOtlvsays that state secretary  Reitz has demuuded that general White  shall immediately release the supposed  spy -Nathan Marks, who is confined at  Ladysmith, coupling his demand with a  threat to execute six British officers.  General Buller replied, according to the  dispatch, that he was entitled to  hold the man until he should render a satisfactory- account" of" himself  Considerable feeling has been aroused by  the announcement that sir William Butler, fornier commander at the Cape, will  nob command the troops on the occasion  of the Queen's visit to Bristol tomorrow.  As Butler commands tho western district,  liis absence from the ceiemony is remarkable, and is attributed to fear of a hostile  demonstration, owing to his unpopular  attitude with reference to the Transvaal.  Stormed the Trenches.  London, November 14.--Special dispatches from Manila say seven Americans were killed and fifteen wounded in  Wheaton's daybreak attack this morning  on the town of Salinda, whieli was stubbornly defended. After a heavy fire, the  Americans charged and stormed the  works." Seventy-seven dead Filipinos  Avere counted in the trenches.  'Tin-owing Shells at Kimberley.  Kimkkkl'-Y. Tuesday, November 7���  morning-���via Hopetown, Friday, November 10.���The Boors are now throwing  shells at the reservoir and water-works.  The weather is fine.   One of the Largest in the World.  The largest copper mine in the southwestern United -States, aud one of the  richest in the world, is the United Verde,  at Jerome, Arizona. The district  was discovered iu 1875 by a party of  prospectors wlio mado numerous locations on the hills where tho great copper  mines now are, among them some of those  now forming the United Verde group.  During the following seven years the  original locators did development work  on some of the claims, and in 1882 . o'.d  their interests to ex-governor Tritle of  Arizona and F. P. Thomas of California  for $15,000. A 30-ton smelter was built  in   188.1, which    produced  in  289 days  Sandon, November 14.���That the miners' unions of the Slocan are conducting  every whit as energetic a campaign as the  Silver-Lead Mines Associations is being  abundantly proven. The efforts of the  latter to obtain men on the outside,  though persistent, are'uot meeting with  the success hoped for. P. A. Wood, of  the Last Chance mine, has been doing  missionary work in Seattle, where he has  beeu telling the men that he would be  jailed for Hiring them there', but if they  would come to British Columbia everything would be all right. But he has  failed to connect. Yesterday morning  the* following telegram was received  .from the union's agent in Seattle:  "SEATTLE, November 12th, 18_).  F. A. Woods left here (his moriiinp.   No men left here,  tinloTC met on way."  It also appears the mine owners have  beeu hiring men in Eastern Canada  as well, as a, second telegram was received  yesterday from the union's agent at  Winnipeg. It stated that the agent of  the union in that city had just stopped  ten men there, who were hired for the  Slocan mines. The mine owners and  their hired secretaries might just as well  accept the fact that the miners have  vigilant watchmen everywhere in Canada  and the United States, men who are fully  alive to the situation here. What men  have been hired "in Seattle and sent  in have beeu mainly returning Klondikers  "who were hard up. When tliey arrived  here tliey were cordially received and  treated by the union men, who paid their  expenses out of the camp. It looks as if  the fight was one of brains against  capital?  Making Ends Meet.  The directors of the Kootenay ��� Lake  Geueral Hospital Society met yesterday  afternoon, when tenders for the supply  of groceries' and drugs and for the installation of furnaces for the heating of  the hospital were received and referred  to a special committee with power to act.  The report of Dr. Rose was submitted,  showing that the accommodation of  the hospital was at present fully taxed.  Judge Forin gave notice of a motion to  change the name of the society to the  Nelson Hospital Society. The finances of  the society are in a very satisfactory  shape. It will be necessary to raise  about $2500 to complete the payment for  the $0000 addition which has been made  to tlie hospital, but the receipts of the  hospital are now sufficient with the government grant to meet the charges for  maintenance. As the society has a'crown  grant for two acres of very desirable  land, ic will doubtless be easy to raise the  amount required by mortgage.  John A. Logan's Son Killed.  Washington, November 14.���A cable  dispatch received at the war department  announces that major John A. Logan, of  the Thirty-third infantry, has been killed  in a fight in Luzon. He was the only son  of the late senator Logan of Illinois, who  was a famous general of volunteers during the war between the North and the  South.    What Has Become of Them?  Manii-A, November 14.���Escaped Spanish prisoners at San Fabian report seeing  lieutenant Gilmore ou November 1st in  Tarlac with five men, all well. He had  crossed the mountains from Balera in  May with'thirteen men. The location of  the other eight men is unknown.  London, November  14.���That general  White's relief is considered a matter of  pressing importance is again  evidenced  by the satisfaction with which the officials  heard   of the arrival of the transport  Armenian at   Cape Town  yesterday, a  couple of days before her time.   The non-  arrival of her precious freight of field  guns and ammunition threatened a ser-,  ions delay in general Methune's arrangements .for the relief of   White.     The  division, still   lacks cavalry, but in fall  probability the first arrival of that arm  at Cape Town will be sent to Durban,  irrespective of which division they w^ere  originally assigned to.   There is no doubt  that the bombardment of Ladysmith has  increased in intensity during the last few  days, and though all messages from tliere  speak     pf     the     confidence     of   ' the  defenders,     loads     of    anxiety      will  be      removed      from      the      country  when unrestrained communication  with  the beleaguered men   is    reastablished.  Officials at Cape Town are now stopping  all foreign telegrams, whether in code or  otherwise, except messages to the governor   of   Portguese East Africa   and .to  Portugal.  London, November 14.���It was officially  announced this afternoon that the troopship Britannic had arrived at Cape Town  and the troopships Lismore Castle and  Yorkshire had arrived at Durban. The  admiralty has chartered the White Star  line steamer Majestic to convey troops to  South Africa immediately after she returns from her present trip to New York.  The troopship Oriental has sailed from  Cape Town for Durban. The steamer  Carisbrook Castle, from London, October  27th, with the cavalry brigade staff and  naval reinforcements on board, has arrived at Cape Town.  London, November 14.���Por once the  censorship is blamed on account of laxity.  It is asserted  that  the  censor ought to  have   suppressed   the   story   of    father  Matthews "regarding   the  surrender   at  Nicholson's Nek, which, while too vague  to be considered evidence, must cause uneasiness.    The  feeling  is  that until the  facts can be ascertained it would'have  been wiser not to circulate mere gossip.  The great delay on South African cables,  now amounting practically to five days,  and  the   lack   of    any    definite    news  from Ladysmith gives   rise to some apprehension," which is only relieved by the  fact that no adverse advices have come  from either British or Boer sources.  Nothing is known' as to the whereabouts of  general Redvers Buller.     The Powerful  has arrived at  Simons Bay fiom Durban  and began to coal.    The cruiser will return to Durban immediately with more  guns.  Lord George Hamilton, secretary of  state for India, announced in a speech  last evening that a relief force would be  immediately sent to Ladysmith, but beyond that nothing is known of the British campaign, and equal secrecy shrouds  the movements of the Boers.  The Morning Post, which complains  that it was unwise on the part of the  British officers to leave the railway intact  in their retirement to Ladysmith, says:  "It is another illustration of British contempt for the Boers, that they treated  the retirement as though it were an  advance, and preserved the enemy's lines  of. communication as carefully as if it  had been our own."  Dr. Jameson, the hero of the raid, left  Cape Town for England last Thursday.  The Cape authorities have seized a wireless telegraph plant found on board a  vessel destined for Delagoa Bay.  $2400, and lots 15, 16, 17 and 18 in block  87, on the same street and opposite the  Sh'erbrooke liouse, for $3200. He will  hold the lots for speculative purposes.  Harry McLean has surprised his friends.  He. was married at Choteau, Montana, on  the 8th instant to Miss Jennie Drake of  that town. Mr. and Mrs. McLean arrived in Nelson last night.  John A. Turner will turn over his official duties to W. J. Goepel this afternoon,  and he hopes to be able to leave on next  Wednesday for New York, where he will  take the steamer Teutonic on the 29th  for Liverpool. Mrs. Turner and the  children will accompany him. W. A.  Jowett has also arranged to visit the  old country, and will probably make the  journey with the Turners.  George McL. Brown, executive agent  for the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, and superintendent Marpole arrived  in Nelson last evening from the Coast.  Before leaving they will submit a proposition to the city council with respect to  the* making of a divisional point at  Nelson.      , '*���' '.-..'''���;  J. M. Bulger, foreman in the Canadian  Pacific, shipyard, returned yesterday  from his honeymoon trip to Spokane. '  The steamer Nelson is now commanded  by captain McLennan, who wtis first  officer on the Moyie. '  Dr. Welch, oue of the best known dentists on the Coast, who for a long time  practised his profession iu New Westminster, is iii Nelson, and will probably  locate here.  BY MAIL AND TELEGRAPH  Spokane has practically got rid of the  slot-maehiue nuisance. Of the 40 i.'er-  chandise machines that formerly paid a  quarterly license, licenses -for but six  were renewed.  Admiral and Mrs. Dewey returned to  Washington from New York. A navy  department official met and escorted them  to the admiral's*) carriage, in which they  -were driven to their home on Rhode  Island avenue, which was presented to  the admiral by the American people.  The arrival of the distinguished  couple at the station was unmarked, by  any popular demonstration.  The people of Grand Forks arc evidently getting ready for another banquet, as" 300 cases of champagne were  shipped from Nelson yesterday for dealers in that town.  The schooner Mermaid arrived at Victoria last night from a sealing cruise.  She had been driven off the entrance to  the Straits repeatedly. Her crew lived  on flour and water for three weeks. She  reports seals plentiful off the Copper  islands.  The proposed visit of the German emperor to England is the chief topic of  serious discussion and ingenious conjecture in London. On the continent lie hiis  suddenly loomed up as the commanding  figure in European diplomacy, wlio has  thrown his influence on the winning side  at a moment .when England is making a  supreme military effort.  THE LOCAL NEWS OP NELSON  E. A. Crease has returned from the  Coast, where he was attending tlie synod  of the diocese of New Westminster, at  which the new diocese of Kootenay was  created. . He says that tliere is a great  deal of preliminary work to be attended  to before the new diocese is properly constituted. In the first place, bishop Dart  has yet to receive the consent of the archbishop of Canterbury for the division of  the present diocese of New Westminster,  and then necessary legislation for the  proper incorporation of the synod of the  new diocese must be secured from the  legislature. A meeting of the clerical and  lay delegates of the synod will shortly be  held in Nelson for the purpose of taking  steps to perfect their organization.  W. P. Tierney, local agent for the Gault  Coal Company of Lethbridge, yesterday  received a telegram from E. T. Gault announcing that the trouble at the company's colliery had been adjusted, and  that the company would be able to resume shipments in a couple of days.  The steamer Moyie went into commission again yesterday. She tows thirty  cars at a time between Kootenay Landing and Nelson. The Canadian Pacific  company has now three barges, with a  capacity of fifteen cars each. Yesterday  they moved the full number of cars (45)  into Nelson.  H. R. Cameron, assignee for the Nelson  Sawmill Company's estate, will shortly  distribute another dividend among the  creditors of the estate. It will be made  up chiefly from the insurance money received on account of the recent fire and  the sale of machinery.  Provincial constable Robert Bullick  yesterday brought Charles Harrison of  Fernie into Nelson upon a charge of  attempting to commit an unnatural  crime. Harrison was committed for trial  I by stipendiary magistrate Armstrong of  Fort Steele. The prisoner was brought  before judge Forin last evening for election, and decided to take speedy trial.  He will come up for trial before judge  Forin upon a date to be fixed by the  crown.  Lieutenant-Colonel Peters, D. O, C, of  Victoria, arrived in Nelson last evening.  He will inspect the local company of  Rocky Mountain Rangers on Friday.  The next sitting of the supreme court  in Nelson will be held on December   1th.  Alexander Grant and Arthur McRob-  bie, the two men charged witli escaping  from custody at Moyie while under sentence .of six mouths'1 imprisonment for  assault, came before judge Forin yesterday upon a charge of escaping from custody. . Both men pleaded guilty, and  were sentenced to .six months' imprisonment at hard labor.  P. E. Wilson, solicitor for the Noonday-  Curley Mining Company, left for .Silver-  ton yesterday to attend the first annual  meeting of the company. The election of  officers and the planning of the company's* work for the season will constitute the chief business of the meeting.  Advertisers wishing space in the Saturday edition of Tub Trihunm can secure it  at the following rates; 50 cents an inch  for one column or less; over one column,  50 cents an inch with 20 per cent off.  H. D. Beck, an old man who has made  Nelson his home for several years, and  who was employed on odd jobs from  time to time by the city, died on Monday  night iii his room on Stanley street.  Heart failure is given as the cause of  death.  W. McBratney of Great Fall*, ai rived  in Nelson a few days ago with $0000 to  invest in real estate. From Frank  Fletcher he purchased the two Baker  street lots, to the west of the London &  British Columbia GoldfieSd.s offices,  for  PLANS MADE AND AWAITING THE  Approval of Superintendent Marpole.  The plans for the Canadian Pacific  yard, wliich if adopted will make Nelson  a divisional point, have been prepared  and await the approval of superintendent  Marpole. Should the present plans be  approved, the depot will be on the flat  on the north side of Baker street and the  freight sheds on the south side of the  same street. Nothing in the way of  plans for the depot has been attempted,  as the drawings for all such buildings  are invariably made at the'head office in  Montreal. With respect to the freight  sheds, the proposal is to make a building  400 by 40 feet, so arranged that an additional 100 feet may be added tothe-length  as occasion requires. The arrangement  of the yard is such that the company  will be able to handle almost any number of cars. It embraces ten straight  through sidings,'each of which will be  capable of accommodating from 25 to 30  cars. The round-house is located in the  centre of the present Y. It will probably  have ten stalls. The coal-bunkers will be  located on'.the side of Smelter hill, so  that coa! can'be loaded on the tenders  from chutes.  The Rifles Were Baffled.  Not long since the managers of the  Pnyne mine in Montreal hired several  men in that city to work in the Payne  mine at Sandon, and before starting  them to the wild and woolly west presented each of the men with a brand new  Winchester rifie, telling them that the  rifles would come in handy for hunting  big-game, which abounded-in the Slocan.-  The men duly arrived at Sandon, and  were sidetracked by the members of the  miners' union, who prevailed on them not  to go to work. Tlie men turned their  rifles over to the boys, and they were raffled off, the proceeds paying tho expenses  of the Montreal men while at .Sandonand  their fares to the Coast. Tliis i.s the real  reason why the Payne mine failed to pay  its last monthly dividend.  Five Gold Mills in Operation.  The Granite mill has been started on a  trial run, and it is said to be working  smoothly. The tramway from the Poor-  man mine to the Granite tramway, about  a half mile in length, is also completed.  It is claimed the mill and tramway are  the best that have yet been constructed  in Kootenay. The mill has 20 stamps,  and will crush from 10 to .30 tons  of ore a day. There is said  to be enough ore in sight  in the Granite and Poorman aud  Royal Canadian mines to run the mill for  months. This*- makes five mills, with  a crush ing capacity of 300 tons of ore  a - day, in actual operation in Nelson  district. The bullion product of the five  mills should be not Ies-* than $100,000 a  month.  Over Five Hundred Active Members.  It lias been said that there are few  miners at work at Sandon. The miners'  union of that town has 512 members in  good standing, and tho society has several thousand dollars in the bank. Of  the total membership, 75 per cent are  known to be British subjects, who have  tlieir names on the provincial and dominion voters' lists. The union is an incorporated society and owns its own hospital. The hospital staff is an excellent  one, and patients are not better treated  at any hospital in Kootenay.  THE PORT OF NELSON RUN VERY  Economically.  Hon. William Paterson, minister of customs, is expected to arrive in Nelson this  afternoon   over   the Crow's Nest road.  During the minister's stay in this city  representations will be made to him, not  ouly as to the urgent necessity for public  buildings, but also as to the need  of increasing the present head office  staff at  the port of Nelson.    Bythe auditor-general's report for the past year it is shown  that the port  of  Nelson's  revenue  is in  many   instances   double  that   of   other  ports which have a head office staff ranging from three to  fifteen  men, while at  Nelson a staff of four is required to perform a great deal  more work.    The  unfair manner in which the officials of the  Nelson port are treated is  illustrated by  a comparison between the returns of the  local port and those of Kingston.    Por  the year ending June 30th, 1898, the revenue of the port of Nelson was $251,084.43,  the  expenditure  $12,788,  and the  head  ^office   staff   four   men.     For the   same  period the revenue of the port  of King-  stan   was    $124,003,   the    expenditures  $12,473, and tlie head office staff fifteen  men.    For a portion  of the period covered  by the last  report of the auditor-  general   the   oiitport of   Rossland   was  attached to the port of Nelson, but since  Rossland and Kaslo have been cut off, the  growth of business in the reduced area of  the port of Nelson has beeu  such that it  promises to equal the revenue yielded by  the   larger   area,  the  monthly  revenue  being now about $20,000 per month.  The Million-Dollar Sawmill Combine.  Commenting on the reported deal by  which certain sawmill interests in Kootenay and Yale have been consolidated  and capitalized for a million dollars, a  sawmill man of a good many years' experience said: "You newspaper people  make some queer blunders and tell some  great yarns." The newspaper man retorted : "We have to be pretty good  liars to keep even with you sawmill  millionaires." "Yes, that is so," was the  admission of the sawmill man, "and there  is nothing in that million-dollar sawmill, !  combine yarn. Why, all the sawmills iu  Kootenay and Yale, with all their timber ' "  limits thrown iu, are not worth the sum  for which four or five mills in this section  are reported to have been sold for." Continuing the sawmill man. said: "If the  sawjnill business was so profitable, ^why  are all the sawmill men so hard up ? They  have not speculated, as have some other  business men. To my mind, there is little  money iu manufacturing lumber in Koot-  enay or Yale, either by combining^ or  running independently." After, inakhig  the above statements, - the sawmill man  wandered off towards the water front,  saying as lie went that he was going  down to find out how much Tom Gray f  had saved during his thirty years' experience in the sawmill business in British Columbia.   Prosperous Presbyterians.  Rev, Robert Frew returned from Sandon yesterday, where he dedicated the  new Presbyterian church. His impression  of the people of Sandon is that they are  very cheerful, considering the present  difficulty between the miners and the  mine owners, He also say.1? that they ap- '  pear to have plenty of money. The new , "  church cost $3000, and it is now virtually  free of debt. The dedicatory services on  Sunday were followed by  au  enter tain-  _ment_on Monday_evening,_and _the pro*-.   ceeds aggregated $3-15, the greater part  of which was placed upon the plates.  Rev. John Clclland, who has been  stationed at Sandon, and bo whose efforts  the new church is in a measure due, has  accepted a call to a congregation in  Eugene, Oregon. He will be succeeded ��t  Sandon by Mr. Ferguson, who has been  doing missionary work at Whitewater.  The Liquor Dealers' Association.  , The executive committee of the newly  organized Licensed Victuallers' Association of Nelson met yesterday afternoon  in,the Hume hotel. Ou being interviewed  one of the members said : "I caunot tell  you much at the present time concerning  the organisation, as arrangements have  not yet been completed. The committee  on organization met this afternoon and  considered a constitution and bylaws.  These cannot now be annouued as they  are yet to be adopted or rejected by the  association, but the association will be  run on much the same lines as are similar  organizations iu other cities."  Beginning to Revive.  Business is improving greatly at San- *  don, merchants and commercial men alike  testifying to this fact. On Saturday  night one merchant took in $200 in cash  after six o'clock. Pack trains are going  daily to the mine--, taking up winter  supplies, Even those properties popularly supposed to be shut down are laying in their season's stock.  Held a Meeting.  The members of the Silver-Lead Mines  Association met in Sandon yesterday.   It  is rumored that one faction introduced a  resolution  that the   association be dis-   **  banded, but it was voted down by tlie  Robertson -Alexander -Dunsmuir -Mediae  crowd.

Then will occur a sort of holy alliance of  the three repnblics, France, Italy and  Spain, apainst the German empire. Afterward there will ensue a prodigious conflict between the English and the Germans for the possession of Constantinople. The prophecies are interesting���extremely interesting.

Butte Mining World.  There tire prospectors aud���prospectors. There are those who liave followed  the calling of the prospector for years.  They occasionally strike a good tiling  which they partially develop, and then  sellout. They prospect for the love of  the business, aiid seem to be happy only  when with burro, or old gray mare, loaded down with blankets, pick, pan and  shovel and "grub," they roam over mountains in search of something good���something that will fetch them a "homestake"  or enough to go to their native heath and  dream away the rest of their lives. They  seldom or never realize the fruition of  their hopes. They are prospecting still.  No climate is too torrid, none too frigid  to deter them from taking their chances  in the "stampede." The farther off the  country the more alluring the prospect  appears, disfcauce seems to lend enchantment to their view.  Then again there are prospectors who  engage in the work from the force of cir-  cumstances. They camp with the first  prospect they come across and make or  break by it. They don't last long. If it  i.s a bonanza they have struck they realize what they can out of it and return to  pleasanter fields of labor. At all events  they quit the business and follow some  other calling. Mountain trails know  them no more forever. In tlie early days  tliey were called "summer prospectors,"  for they hugged warm stoves rather than  ���a cold blanket on frosty grouud. They  may have beeu wise in doing so, as far as  their personal comfort was Concerned.  But tliey * never founded new mining  - camps, never opened new mining section's,  ' nor called new mining territories or  states into existence. The summer  prospector is a weak brother in "roughing it."  The great northwest is the creation of  prospectors, The Forty-niners deopened  the tracks made by the first settlers of  Oregon, and later by the pioneers of Salt  Lake, and made a great state upon the  shores of the Pacific. The genus prospector sprang from the golden sands of the  land of sunshine and flowers. He panned  from Orescent City at the north to San  Diego at the south. They have hewn the  way, blazed the trails and pointed others  to the wonderfully rich mineral fields in  what was then howling wildernesses in  the "Great American Desert," but are  now the states of Nevada,, Colorado,  Utah, Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. These great, prosperous, woalthy  poiumonwealths are the fruits of the  -prospectors'- toil,of-their-daring,-of- their  persevering industry aud of their bulldog-  hang-oii-ativeriess to the place where  "colors" were found.  One may say what he will, but he must  admit that the prospector found the  camping grounds iipon which western  towns and cities have since been built;  that he opened the way which made it  possible for tho iron horse to race around  our great mountains into thriving mineral centers, and that through his never  tiring industry Alaska and Northern  British^ Columbia may yet enjoy the  fruits which an advanced civilization  yields in this smiling northwest.  Why Army Officers Expose Themselves.  An Ottawa man, who has himself seen  service in the British army, sends the following interesting letter regarding the  question of officers exposing themselves  to the enemy's fire :  Permit me to say a word about officers  standing up under fire, and consequent  losses, which very naturally have excited  public sympathy and query as to the propriety, etc.  First of all, believe me, it is not done  '��� from bravado or foolishness, but is simply  done because it is a necessity in the modern method of infantry attack, and the  losses are consequently severe, owing to  such exposure.   It is the heavy price of  ;   success, perhaps   better exemplified   at  Gleneoe thau anywhere recently.   That  our men were unable to follow up their  success afterwards, does not detract from  the sound policy of a rapid advance in  the first instance, and to obtain this eoni-  :   paratively rapid advance it is essential  :   officers must expose themselves freely iu  guiding, directing   and controlling, the  movement.  -*   In the modern infantry attack, a com-  *pany of say a hundred  men has three  officers���the actual front firing line will, J  Pined for Shaking Dice.  In the police court at Nanaimo, ou Friday, before justices of the peace Hilbert  and Shakespeare, William Steele, proprietor of the Grand hotel; William Patterson, Henry Bra-zoo and Walter Tre-  velyan were fined .$10 each, with $2  costs, for the crime of shaking dice for  the drinks. Constable George Thompson  laid an information on Tuesday against  the above four men for shaking dice for  money. Constable Thompson deposed  that on Tuesday morning about twenty  minutes to four o'clock he had heard a  noise in the Grand hotel. He went over  and looked in through the door. Tliere  appeared to be a dispute over $1.50. He  swore that they shook dice for two lots  of money while he was looking in. He  went further down the street, and when  he came back shortly afterwards he said  the crowd were gettiug pretts' well  ginned up, and said they would  bet 25 cents, and started shaking dice  for it.    It turned out latter that Thornp-  .6  *9  Fur trimmings just opened. Grebe skins, sable tails  and heads fer millinery purposes. Lovely lines just arrived.

To guide and  direct the movements, and control the  fire, to gauge accurately the range, to  observe the enemy's movements, etc., it is  imperative the officers must not get under cover or ' kneel, except for brief  snatches, which wholly depend upon circumstances.  Moreover, the morale of the majority  of the men must not be impaired by seeing those to whom they have been taught  to look for direction, example, etc., keeping too close to cover. In peace, the officer is accorded the greatest honor���in  danger, he nuist take the greater risk-  that, he does so gallantly, is the British  officers' greatest pride and the greatest  source of-making them the most beloved  and trusted by their men of any officers  in all the armies of the world. As the  distance lessens in the attack���and the  time for a rush has come���the officers  step to the front, and lead���it is then  "come on," not, "go on," and, of course,  the officers must suffer, but I do not see  how it could be otherwise, without impairing the quality of infantry, speaking  of it generally and as a Avhole. Believe  me, therefore, nothing is done from a  foolhardy point of vieAV���it is because  long experience has shown it to be productive of best results in the long run.  Personally, I shall never forget the impressions of my; first action. For nearly  two hours, we were lying down, under a  heavy shell fire from twenty Krupp field  guns, too far away for rifle fire. Our  .commanding officers, alone erect and observant, stood, glasses in hand, on a little  eminence in our immediate front. The  shells, shrieking overhead, and bursting  short and right and left, were most "trying to the nerves, and one felt all one's  assurance, oozing away, while the only  feature to give confidence was the apparent indifference pof our major. Had  lie been hugging the ground, hundreds of  men, nerved and supported by his coolness (he was au old campaigner), .would  have been deprived of what to them was  everything, in that their first action.  And so it is in the attack as at Gleneoe  and Elandslaagte���the officer must take  the risks. It is a heavy price, but it is  the price of victory.  I don't wonder at all at the query as  to it being the better way. But imagine  yourself out in the open, with the great  responsibility of commanding a company  in the attack of a position. To conserve  your own men's lives���to inflict the greatest damage upon the enemy���to close  with him as rapidly tis possible, to escape  loss���these you would' feel were the  things to be done, and to do them you  would admit you mtsst not take cover, except sparingly���else soon the line would  not advance. By its stoppage, the enemy  enemy would soon geb your range, your  losses become greater, and soon you  would be unable to advance however  much you wished to. With the officers  it must be tlie old case of "noblesse oblige"���and it is the British officers* glovy  that they invariably do it.  sou had three   cigars   with   the party  whilst they were shaking these dice.   Ou  cross-examination bythe lawyer for  the  defence, Thompson swore he heard them  .say they would shake the dice for 25  cents* a corner.      The   four  defendants  swore  positively  that they  had shaken  for drinks and had not gambled for money in any way.    There may have been remarks passed such as " I'll  bet  you  two  bits," " He wins," etc., but no money was  put up and  there was no intention of  putting money up.    Lawyer Yarwood, in  addressing the justices, said that  he was  willing   to   "admit,   and    iu   fact   had  done     so      from      the      start,      that  the   defendants  were shaking dice   for  the drinks.    He   said   it   was  done   in  every  hotel  in  every   town   iu   British  Columbia and was looked on as a harmless pastime.    Everyone did it. He urged  the   justices   to let  the defendants off  with a warning as it was a  first  offence.  Justice Hilbert said, in   reviewing the  case, that there were worse instances of  gambling in Nanaimo, and he would like  to see the city police look into the matter. He said that this case was, however,  contrary to "the bylaw, which distinctly  prohibits shaking dice   for the  drinks.  The justices imposed a fine of $10 and $2  costs, or in default seven days' imprisonment in each  case.     As this case was  looked upon more or less as a test, a large  number assembled in the police court to  hear it tried.  A Persistent Rumor.  Montreal, November 14.���-The report  that sir A. Lacoste is going to step down  from the bench and go into active politics  as the leader of the Dominion Conservatives in the province of Quebec is put  forward with so much persistency by  those.who are acquainted with the political situation in this province, that many  are accepting it as correct. It is also  said that in-the course of time he would  be made leader of the party in the  country. This is said to be the best way  to work up a great opposition to sir Wilfrid Laurier in Quebec, where he is now  holding nearly all the constituencies. Sir  Alexander Lacoste would go into practice  in this city, and make more money than  he does on the bench.  International Law Association.  New Haven, Connecticut, November  14.���News was received in this city that  the executive council of the International  Law Association, in London on October  30th, elected judge Simon Baldwin, of  the supreme court of errors in Connecti-  eul, president of the association, to succeed sir Richard Webster, attorney-general of Great Britain, whose term expires  this year. It was decided to hold the  next conference of the association in  Rouen, France,next August, probably on  August 14th.             An Unrighteous  Judgment,  Toronto, November 14.���In the division  court this morning   John  MeNally  sued  James Burke  for  $23' for  board  Burke went to McNally's  to  board, but  FULL LINE OF  he wasn't in bed two hours the first night,  when he *n?as called to Fort Erie and was  away two ��� weeks. Then he was tak< n  sick and had to go to the hospital, and  was there" about two weeks." All this  time the McNallys wanted to charge him  for his board, although he had not had a  a meal or slept there for nearly a mouth.  Burke did not like paying two months'  board, wliich he didn't get, but the judge  thought differently, and gave judgment  against"liii|i for the full amount. Burke  had left liis goods and chattels in the  room.  ^Time is Our Friend.  Toronto Telegram.  Every day which  passes  without  disaster to sir. George White's army in Natal  is a day lost  to the Boers and a day  gained to-the British. Measure the power  of  the nations ,in   immediate    military  strength aud at the outset  the Boer  republics were  three or four  times  more  powerful   'than     the     empire    whose  territory   they   invaded.      In   ultimate  power there is no comparison between  two small republics and the greatest empire on  earth, but in immediate power  the whole force under sir George White  compares to Joubert's army as one  compares    to    three    or    four.        It   was  the   hope   of   using   its   great   superiority    of    intermediate   power    whieh  induced   the Transvaal   government to  end the armed peace with its ultimatum.  These hopes have  not  been  realized  by  the performances of Joubert's army. The  capture of a few hundred British soldiers  was a notable achievement, but it is not  the dazzling success which Joubert hoped  to win and use  as a  means  of forcing  peace on his own terms.  Britain will owe  a great debt to the troops at the disposal  of sir George White if the leadership and  fighting   power   of   the   field   force in  northern Natal proves equal to the great  task of thwarting general Joubert in his  plans to use his overwhelming strength  at the outset to secure some really signal  triumph over British arms.  0  W  mm  :gl  "���"-"i&t  *.**s**  WE IjAVE THESE  MATTRESSES  IN STOCK  HAVE YOU EVER  SLEPT ON THE  0STERM00R ELASTIC  FELT MATTRESSES  IF NOT YOU HAVE  m  B  B  B  B  B  B  m Tfemont Hotel  IY|AL0f*E & TREGILLUS  PROPRIETORS  Headquarters for Miners and Ppospeetors  THE BEST BRANDS OP  Liquorsand Cigars  ALWAYS ON HAND  Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  Windows  Inside Finish  local and coast.

P. C. Cotton in reply to his communication upon the -subject of the sewer pipe wliich has been  held by Turner, Beeton <fc Co. for the pa.st  three years upon the provincial government's account. The reply of the finance  minister was as satisfactory as it could  be. It recited that the government took  tlie view that the pipe, -which was intended for' use in Nelson prior to incorporation, was virtually the pipe of tlie  municipality, and that the city was entitled to the free ownership of it. The  communication further authorized the  city to make such arrangements as it desired with Turner, Beeton <fc Co. for the  delivery or otherwise accounting of the  pi pep The invoiced value of the pipe  transferred to the city is given as  .$2175.5.5, which with freight added  amounted to $3253.90. As soon as he received the reply of the finance minister,  city clerk Strachan called upon Percy  Griddle, local manager for Turner, Beeton  & Co., aud received delivery of the unsold pipe, as well as a check for $780.95,  being the proceeds from such pipe as was  sold.

SUCCEEDED   IN    INTERESTING  Capital For Mine' Development.  Charles McKay, president of the Nelson  Miners' Union, who has been in the East  for close upon three months in the interests of the several miners' unions in  Kootenay, lias returned to Nelson. He  says that throughout the Dominion, from  Halifax west, the country is enjoying  more prosperity than it has for years  past, and while there may hot have been  any appreciable advance in wages, there  is work for almost everyone [who wants  it. This condition he thinks very largely  contributed to the failure of the efforts  of the Mine Owners' Association to import laborers' from the East. While iu  the East, Mr. McKay did a stroke of business on his own account, having arranged  with capitalists to interest themselves in  the Fuller group of mineral claims, which  he owns iu East Kootenay. These claims  are situated on White Fish creek, a, tributary of St. Mary's river, and considerable surface work has been done upon  them. The ledge, which appears to be  from five to eight feet wide, is in a granite  formation. It carries a copper ore which  assays about Oh per cent copper with gold  and silver values ranging iu the neighborhood of $5 to the ton. * As Mr. McKay  intends to personally superintend the development upon the property, he will  probably tender his resignation as president of the Nelson Miners' Union, as it  is necessary that the head of the organization should reside iu Nelson.  toves!  toves!
