 ^__A  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDif JON BY MAlL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  NINTH YEAR  NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING JANUARY 5  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  SOME VERY RICH BONDHOLDER ORE  Rumor That the Payne Has Been Forced To Close Down  By the Smelter Trust.  WHAT THE MINING MEN ARE DOING IN NELSON DISTRICT  The Bondholder ' group on  ' Springer creek has created a new  record with a shipment just sampled at the Hall Mines smelter. The  ore was brought in several days  ago, and the smelter returns are  224 ounces silver, and 7 per cent  lead, ou 18J tons, netting $2-100 per  car after deducting freight and  treatment charges. This is a larger  return than was had from the  former shipments.  The property, which is owned by  R. C. Campbell-Johnston and  others, is in splendid shape to make  further shipments of high grade  * ore. There is a continuous ore  chute of 150 feet of clean shippiug  ore, and this will doubtless be extended further as exploration progresses. At the face the depth  attained is 300 feet, .aud ��� a great  quantity of ore is in sight, as the  floors are untouched, and only a  small amount stoped overhead.  'Has the Payne Closed Down?  A Sandon man who came iu on  yesterday afternoon's train is the  0 authority for a report that the  Payne mine has shut down. No  further particulars could be obtained last night regarding the  matter. The rumor would carry  no weight, as it is well known that  the Payne has large quantities of  or_*r blocked out, but the stand  taken by the American Smelting  a Company in refusing to accept Brit-  -, ish Columbia lead ores alters the  situation.*1'The Payne ore carries  00,.:,tat_gp, xpe>.\,..cent ]ead,-, and ,the  smeltei-"combine has declared that  it can no longer handle lead ores  from Kootenay, which would naturally put the Payne in a quandary  to dispose of its output, which has  always gone across the line. It is  stated tliat the Trail smelter could  not touch Payne ore for several'  months, and the commencement of.  shipments from the Silver Hill to  Nelson will probably give the local  smelter ore to its utmost capacity.  With the American smelters refusing the business and the Canadian  smelters running to their capacity  on other ores, it would be a natural  . course for the Payne to stop work  ���until-a-market-was-secured���for-its-  product.   Further particulars will  '"be to hand today.  Finishing the Contract.  A. W. Garnbs returned to the  Alexander Dilley mine this morning  After spending a couple of days in  the city on business. He-has had a  ���small crew of men at the property  since September last on a contract  for the owners, a Rosalia, Washington, outfit, and will finish the  work laid out this month. The  showing developed is not as good as  was anticipated for the reason that  the.crosscut tuunel did not tap the  oro body, the vein apparently dipping.at a more acute angle than  was estimated. Some unusually  fiue. ore has been encountered and a  quautity could be shipped which  would net a'handsome return. The ;  Alexandra is ' near the summit  of Six-mile-Lenion creek divide  ���where the snow is now ten to fourteen feet in depth. '������ Mr. Gambs  made the trip on skis.  Tn the Silverton Camp.  The first contract for 250 feet of  tunneling on the Silverton Boy has  been completed and another contract has been made for an additional 200 feet. Recent work has  uncovered some fine ore, of which  samples were brought to the city  .yesterday./' Further work to explore the pre body will be awaited  with interest.  The Emily Edith, adjoining the  Silverton Boy,., is being developed  extensively under the direction of  E. Rammelmeyei- of Nelson, and it  is probable that some of the clean  ore taken out in the course of development will be shipped this winter. When the company starts  ���stoping the Emily Edith will be a  heavy producer. One of the features  of the Emily Edith , is the manner  in which its camp is equipped.  Everything has been done to pro  mote the comfort aud convenience  of the men, even to the lighting,  which is provided from a dynamo  furnishing 200 incandescent lamps.  The Peruvian' Contract.  A representative of the B. C. Riblet Company will, leave from New  York on the 20 instant, to superintend the work of installing tramways for which a contract was  closed recently.: The trams are to  be constructed at the mines controlled by the Andes Mining Company, an English company operating at Chimbote, - Peru, and the  contract represents au outlay of  .$05,000. Tho machinery and plant  will be constructed at St. Louis,  Missouri, on specifications prepared  by Mr. Riblet, the cost of transportation making it necessary to do  the work a& near the point of delivery as possible, particularly in  view of the fact that all the timbers for the platforms and ore bins  must be cut and matched for delivery on the ground, ready to assemble, the supply of skilled labor  in Peru not being adequate to the  task of preparing the timbers on  the ground. Mr. Riblet is likely to  spend a month in Peru before the  woik is completed,'which will be  nine months hence.  Maple Leaf to Work.  Philip Corcoran, a mining man  from San Francisco, is in the city  today. He is tho engineer of the  Maple Leaf Mining Company, which  owns the Maple Leaf group of  claims on Forty-nine creek, adjoining the Nevada property owned by  the Duncan Mines, Limited. --Tlie  Maple Leaf is crown-granted and  wa9 acquired by the present owners  a couple of years ago. Themoney  expended in development was not  utilized in a manner calculated to  show up the property to advantage  according to Mr. Corcoran, and of  late the company has, in a sense,  been lying on-its oars awaiting the  result of operations on- adjoining  properties. He states, however, that  a new program has been arranged,  and that as soon as the snow is off  work is to be started on a good  scale. It is proposed to put in a  power hoist and employ as large a  crew as is practical. If the development is-satisfactory the plant-will^  bo extended by the addition of a  stamp mill.  An Engineer for Africa.  S. G. Pearson of this city left this  morning per C. P. R. for New York,  whence he sails on the 12th instant  for England per the Canard steamer  Servia. ' After a short' stay in  London he goes to Africa and will  lead an exploring party into the  Lake Tanganyika country to determine the mineral and other  resources of the district for an  English syndicate which has a concession in the interior. The country  over which the party will go has"  been covered by other explorers,  but no attempt has been made to  examine into its mineral possibilities-,  so that in this respect Mr. Pearson's  party will be pioneers. A few years  ago Mr. Pearson spant some time in  South Africa at the head of an exploration outfit and the merit of  his services at this time lead to his  selection for the Lake Tanganyika  expedition.  R. R. Dougan of this city has  given an option on two promising  Forty-nine creek claims to .local  parties. The consideration is  $10,000.   -   H. E. T. Haul tain has resigned  the post of managerof the Yellowstone mine.   Certificates were issued yesterday  to A. H. Kelly on the Gold Bell,  Golden Grant and Tip-Top Fraction  claims. ' ���'        :    ������' ������       '  Latest News from Dawson.  Vancouver, .Tauuary 4.���The  steamer Victosia has arrived from  Skagway with 40 passengers, mostly  from Dawson. They had left as  late as December 10th, making  quick time over the ice. A. F. Lauder of Seattle was the latest passenger, and he came out on a bicycle.  Mrs. Ballinger, wife of Dr. Baliin-  gcr, who left Dawson on December  0 th for Skagway and completely  disappeared, also came out. by the  Victorian. She heard nothing of  her husband, who, it is feared, met  with foul play, and she. is now on  her way to seek assistance of relatives in Seattle. She will immediately return to the north to further prosecute the search. There  is no clue and the conclusion that  lie was foully dealt with is entirely  theoretical. An application for a  new trial for John F. Slorah, who  murdered his mistress, was refused  at Dawson on December 14 th and  the sentence of hanging on March  1st will probably takes  its course.  Three Murderers Eeleased.  Kingston, January 4.���William;  Henry and Alexander Freemau,  three brothers sentenced to imprisonment for life for the killing  of policeman Rankin at Chatham,  Ontario, on January 24th, 1893,  have been released from the penitentiary.    M'KINLEY ROUNDLY SCORED  FOR   HIS   ALASKAN   BOUNDARY  CONCESSION  POLICY.  An Angry Senator Declares That the  President Relinquished   Sover-  -   eignty to Great Britain.  Washington, January 4.���During the discussion of the army .bill  in the senate today, senator Carter  reviewed the action of "congress  through7which the Philippines had  been acquired. "The moment the  treaty of peace was ratified," said  he, "that moment it became the  supreme law of the land. If the  president had refused to maintain  the sovereignty of the United  States there, he would have laid  .himself liable to impeachment.".  '������ "Has he". not already given . up  sovereignty oveKa? portion of Alaska?" inquired .Mi'. Wellington.  Mr. Carter'replied-tliat what the  president had done as to the Alaskan boundary had been accomplished through a modus vivendi, a  purely temporary arrangement.  "It is nevertheless a fact," declared Mr. Wellington, "that territory over which we had undisputed  sovereignty has been abandoned.  The British flag has been raised  over it, and it is controlled by British constabulary."  Mr. Carter���"That is the alleged  fact only."  Mr. Wellington said the Alaskan  -boundary���was-dintinctly-marked-  by stones, and tVie territory acquired  by the United States from Russia  was clearly the property of this  country, adding : "If the president  should be impeached if he relinquished territory in the Philippines, he should likewise be impeached for relinquishing soverignty  iu Alaska."  Chinese Pay in Forged Notes,  Shanghai, January 4. ��� The  French intend to send a force overland from Tonkin to Chen Tu,  should the Chinese court go there.  "It is reported on the best authority," says the Chinese newspaper  Cheng Weic Ci Pao, "that a foreign  power, probably the British, will  resort to force, first seizing Chu  Ran, unless the persons guilty; of  the massacre of Christians at  Cliuenow are beheaded. It is considered' possible that sir Ernest  Mason Satow, the British minister  to China, is moving in the Chuenow  affair. Among the bank notes  which the Chinese paid to the  foreign consuls, as indemnity for  the missions destroyed at Shetung,  were five pound notes that had  been raised to 15 pound notes, and  10 pound notes that had been  raised to 100 pound notes."  ' The Canadian Makes a Winning.  Boston, January 4.���Archie McEachern, the clevli? rider from Toronto, led at the finish on the Fifth'  day's riding at Park Square garden,.  The finish was neither warm nor  exciting, two of the best sprinters,  McLean and Walthour, having fallen  a quarter of a mile from the end.  Old Man Burned to Death.  Brighton, Ontario, January 4.���  The hov;se of John McLean was  destroyed by fire this morning.  McLean's father-in-law, William  Lawson, ninety years old, perished  iu the flames.  HOW MUCH CAN CHINA PAY?  THIS   NOW   CHIEFLY   CONCERNS  THE  ALLIED  POWERS.  Explanations -Will Be; Asked for Regarding Russian Aggression .in  Manchuria .Province.  Washington, January, 4.���The  state department is making, a  strong effort to secure an understanding among the,-powers which  will serve as a basis .for the adjustment of the question/of indemnity  to be paid by the Chinese government. The principal difficulty in  the way is believed to be the enormous indemnities demanded by'the  powers. The efforts-of the Chinese  government to secure better terms,  so far as they can protract ."the negotiations, are also expected,' to  have the result of adding considerably to the sum total to be paid-in  the end. This is > because the expense of maintaining tho force  establishments in China probably  -will be assessed against tlie Chinese  government.       *' ^  It is believed ' that' the , bill of  -Germany wih\be ISy far the largest.  The German government has allowed its officers in'servicein China  five-fold their* regular salaries, a  rate of pay' hitherto unknown in  military . history .y ThS * Chinese,  however, are expected to pay - for  this. The; attitude. of Russia,-in  Manchuria, has "gjveri - rise to considerable apprehension; here.' As  indicated in recent*news dispatches,  a series of - regulations, has 'been  promulgated by the 'Russian government for the administration" of  affairs in Manchuria,,--which would'  seem to the officials here to warrant  an apprehension that a; permanent  occupation of that territory, with  its- population of "twenty. millions,  isin contemplation.^ -jjo "clear j lip  any doubt on this poijaC-iL is,-probable that an explicit -official declaration from Russia will be .-invited on this point.  St. Petersburg, January 4.���The  Novoyi Vremya * characterizes the  Chinese acceptance of the peace  terms of the powers as being a  formality due to China's inability  to oppose the European armies.  The paper adds that the next  catastrophe is probably not far distant, and that it will' far surpass  the recent occurrences. The paper  fiercely attacks German plundering,  vandalism and the destruction of  the libraries and other.monuments  of the ancient civilization by the  German and other troops.  NELSON'S TRADE IS BRISK  With All Outside Points.  The wholesale trade has been unusually lively during the past week.  The rule heretofore1 has been that  the quiet season following the holiday trade set in immediately after  New Year's, and the local dealers  were somewhat pleased to note that  this week, as a rule, business was  brisk, better in most cases than  during the last week in December.  The next two months, however, are  likely to. see tradeu considerably  quieter. This is a normal .condition-  of affairs, and will; -afford the  wholesalers a breathing spell.

STILL SQUABBLING OVER PAY  BADEN-POWELL   MAY   NOT  GET  THE CANADIAN RECRUITS.  The Roslyn Castle Expected to Arrive  at Halifax Tomorrow With the  Second Contingent.  Ottawa, January, 4.���The Ben-  net, offerr to supply one hundred  men . for- Baden-Powell's force in  South Africa is still the subject of  official communication between the  militia department aud the imperial government, and will have, to  wait awhile until the matters under,  discussion by the two governments,  are decided.

If the imperial authorities require attestation by imperial officers, then it is  represented than an officer from  Halifax or Esquimalt could be appointed to attest.

L. Lawsbee in  relation to the receipts and expenditures in Cuba, in violation of his  his official duty, and the fundamental principles of the government of  a good administration thereof. Consideration of the resolution was  postponed until tomorrow.  Railway Man Buys Mining Interests.  Greenwood, January 4.��� [Special  to The Tribune.]���', one-fifth interest in the Lake Shore & B.C.

LAMER AS PEACE COMMISSIONER  Daily Chronicle Favors the Suggestion That the Premier's  "Sunny Way" Be Tried.  BRITISH FORCED TO DESERT FIGKSBURG WHICH BOERS LOOT  London, January 5.���The earl of  Kandahar and Pretoria is already  immersed in his arduous new duties  at the war office. , He will take no  holidays. There is no further news  from lord Kitchener, who, according to a Cape Town dispatch, is  calling for five -thousand men to  guard the Rand mines. Enlisting  in Cape Colony continues active,  and five hundred men will leave  Cape Town for the north within  the next few days.  Information regarding the invasion is scanty. Colonel Williams  attacked the eastern" invaders on  January 1st, near Middleburg, but  failed to dislodge them. : He has  since been joined by lieutenant-  colonel Grenfell, and the Boers have  retired.  General Brabant has arrived at  Graaf Reinet. Advices from Maseru, Basutoland, dated yesterday,  says that three separate columns  are still pursuing general Dewet,  but with no success- beyond taking  twenty-eight prisoners. - Cannon  firing is continually heard.  The Daily Chronicle advises that  favorable attention should be given  to a movement, reported by its  Montreal correspondent, to induce  sir Wilfred Laurier, the Dominion  premier, provided the colonial office  consents, to proceed to South Africa  as'a* commissioner empowered to intervene, with, a view tp1 the restoration of- peace.  All.' the .English have   deserted  Ficksburg, taking their stock of  grain across the border, and the  Boers have looted the town. According to the Daily Mail's correspondent at The Hague, the directorate of . the Netherlands South .  African railway has applied to the  Amsterdam courts for a sns-pensioii  of payments.  .

I  -*���**!  '<_\  **?l  '��  ���-*- *��� THE*"--DOMINION* OBNSUS.��� '~!  -   (   . _ -   w _, '    -  Montreal, January 4.���The pre-':  parations for' taking the Dominion  census are now well in hand, the  count being made during the first  week in April next, but the ta*sk of'  enumeration will require at least  one month in which to complete.  It will cost about three-quarters of  a million dollars to take the Canadian census, and it will occupy the  space of three years to complete the  whole work. The census of Great  Britain will be taken on Sunday,  the 31st of March, and the enumeration is supposed to be made in one  day. The same plan is adopted in  France and Be]giiim,-but-in_each-of_  these cases no attempt is made to  do more than secure a count of the  heads of population, while in Canada, as in the United States, the  custom has been to aim at securing  a record of the industri il life of  the country and other data. To  make the forthcoming "solemn inquest of the nation" and to complete the Canadian census of 1001  will require a small army of between 8000 and 10,000 enumerators  and other officials. The last decennial census of the dominion  is conceded to be unreliable.  Census-taking is an old institution  in Canada. The first official census  of New France, as it was then called,  was taken in.10(55, a little more than  half a century after Champlain laid  the foundation of Quebec. The population of the country was then  3215 souls. During the remainder  of the seventeenth century eight  censuses of New France were  taken, and twelve in the eighteenth century. When, in 1790,  the year in which the first census  of the United States was taken, the  population of the American union  was found to be 3,929,214, the population at that date of what is  now the Dominion of Canada was  220,000. In 1861 all the Canadian  provinces - were taken, except  British Columbia, but ten years  later all were enumerated. The  census of .1881 and that of 1891  were taken on the 5tb of April, the  date then .fixed for census-taking  throughout the British empire. It  is probable that the Canadian  census of 1901 will be an imperial  census also, although it is not the  best time of the year for getting  about the country.  Express Messenger Jailed.  Montreal, January 4.���-W. H.  McGowan, a Moncton, New Brunswick, messenger of the Canadian  Express Company, is under arrest,  -'"chfti'geTI-with-^steaHn'g't'money-from  parcels'1 entrusted;:*to his care; "He ',  has roade--"*flyconfession, ackno"*--*.  ledging having taken sums aggregating $355'from parcels containing  remittances from oue bank to  another.

HUDSON'S BAY  STORES.  - The Chronicle of .Spokane is  authority for tlie statement that  "Jim" Hill of the* Great Northern  railway has given orders that all  Japanese employed on his railway  . must go as rapidly as white men  .can be got to take their places.  The Japanese are employed, so it is  said, through a contracting firm of  Japanese at Seat tl_, at the rate of  . one dollar a day, the firm paying  the men ninety cents out of the  dollar. This firm also supplies the  Japanese laborers with all their  food  supplies,  which   the railway  _carries^free The_Japanese_have_  worked .-their   way   to   St.   Paul,  where a gang were put at work one  -'day cleaning up Mr.. Hill's private  car.     They   made   a   mess of   it,  ��� putting ice in the stoves instead, of  in the water tanks. This displeased Mr. Hill, and the order for  the "Japs to Go" was the consequence.  ��� '__ ���       .  With   fair   chances of   railway  construction in the Lardo and the  completion of the Kootenay Lake  gap in the Crow's Nest railway, the  building of   a   bridge   across   the  Columbia river at Robson and the  erection of   machine  shops  .ind a  Dominion    public    building,     the  chances are Nelson will be a busy  and   prosperous : town  during  the  year 1901. __________  The three candidates who have  offered themselves for aldermanic  ' honors in the East ward and the  three in the West ward are rcpre-  s mtative citizens in every sense of  the word. All are fairly well to do,  and what they own they have  made in Nelson. All six are conservative business men; no one of  them can be considered either a  crank or a faddist. If elected al-  dernien, thny will be neither self-  seekers nor jobbers after cheap  notoriety.    No one of the six  can  ��� be called a politician, although all  > six have political convictions. Three  are Liberals and two are Conservatives, the sixth being an Independent. ��� ���  ������  "William G. Gillett will stand  for  alderman iu   the East ward.  .Since coming to Nelson Mr. Gillett  has been a building contractor, ard  has been successful. He is well  known to, and well liked by, the  men of Nelson who work for a clay's  wage.   Mr. Gillett will be elected.  Thomas Madden will make the  race for alderman in the West  ward, and as he is one of the oldest  residents of tliat part of the city,  no man knows its needs better.  Mr. Madden has served one term in  tlie council, and the experience  then gained will stand him in good  stead this year, for his election is  certain. ���       John Hamilton has consented to  'make the race for alderman iii the  Westward. Mr. Hamilton is trainmaster of the Canadian Pacific railway and is well known to the people of NelsoD. among whom he is as  well thought of as he is among the  employees of the railway.

CORPORATION OFTHE CITY OF NELSON  questions that aro now the most important issues  before the people of the city is such as will bear  inspection.  1 believe that the city has valuabloassstsin the  water and electrlo light systems, and while in  tho council 1 did every tiling possible to safeguard  these asset-*; und If elected mayor no act or vote  of mine will bo in favor of allowing any outside  corporate intorest to become a competitor with  iho city in the business of elootrie lighting, a  business in which the city has already invested  $70,000.  While in tho council in 1S!*7,1 voted in favor of  incorporating' a fair wage clause in all contracts,  and that principle was carried out iu both letter  and spirit. I see no reason to change my views  on that question now. And I believe, further,  that with competent foremen and superintendence that the city can get as good value for the  money spent by having the greatbulk of its work  done by day's labor as by the contract system,  and no good reason can be advanced why the  city should hot pay the same rate of wages aiid  work men tho same number of hours as prevails  in private enterprises.  lam in favor of giving I lie busines*: and property interests every safeguard possible, and to  that end I believe the lire department should bo  made as efficient as possible, consistent wlih Ihe  roveuuosof theci'y. ���-���   .   ���  Nolson should be kept in advance of its rivals,  and everything possible must be dono to induce manufacturing enterprise* to locate hero,  for it is lhe payrolls that build up lhe cities of  today.     *".'���  Nelson, a western city, is as ordorly and law  abiding as eastern cities. This is because the  people of Nelson aro tolerant. I believe that this  spirit'.of-toleration should be continued, and I  will if elected mayor do no act to abridge or curtail tho rights or privileges of one class of our  citizens merely because another class way have  different views.  The ci'y liasmideaslart in permanent street  improvements, and T am in favor of continuing  these improvements hs fast as possible, with due  regard io the revenues of the city.  If elected m-iyor, I am in a position and will  pledge myself to devote lnytimoto Ihe conduct  of the city'o bu-iness.  ;���-���. l**lt\NK FLETCHER.  Nelson, December loth, 1900.

The report is neatly and well gotten, up,  and rellects much credit on the  new secretary, P. M. Draper, of  Ottawa.    The Dominion Labor Gazette is a  little late in reaching the west this  month, being two weeks behind tlie  time it was received by subscribers  in Ontario. The correspondents report the state of trade throughout  Canada as in a fairly prosperous  condition, taking into consideration  the season of the year. Five complaints were made, of tlie importation of alien labor in Canada. In  two instances, one alien iu each case  was ordered to be deported.  During the month of November  thirteen trades unions wore organized in Canada, so far as reported to the Labor Gazette, in  addition to a trades and labor  council at Brockville, Ontario. .  .Samuel C'ompers, (cigarmaker)  has beeu re-elected president of the  'American Federation of Labor and  Frank Morrison (printer) secretary.  .1". _ ft. O'Brien will represent the  Federation as fraternal delegate at  the next meeting of the Canadian  Trades Congress.

Tho foreman  refused to be dictated to about  what he wore, but the firm, to get  the girls back to work, transferred  the man with the shabby tie to au-  otheridepactment. _ _ ��� _^r..,  The Toiler is tho name of a new  labor paper published by the  Toronto Trades and Labor Council.  The paper is distributed free.  Trades unions are doing a great  deal to bring about peace and  friendliness between the nations.  National hatred runs high in  France against Britain, yet only a  few days ago the Nottingham Lace  "Workers' Union voted 2000 francs  for the immediate assistance of the  Calais lace strikers. They will  send 1250 francs weekly during the  continuance of the strike, and will  advance 25,000 francs to the Calais  "tinion. *~~~       ,  ACCRECATE RESOURCES OVER $65,000,000.

It is iigured out that the increase  of wages in the hard coal region of  .Pennsylvania amouts to $1,200,000  n year, while the increase in the  price of coal, due to the advance of  HO cents a ton, further enriches the  barons to the extent of .$27,000,000.  According to the report of the  United Staters labor commissioner,  it costs the railroads about fourteen cents to carry a passenger 100  miles. _______  If our legislators are looking for  a worthy example to emulate they  might transcribe the coal mining  regulations of British Columbia on  our statute books.���Seattle Record.
