 ��*  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL.  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  v.. -5  NINTH YEAR.  THE TRIBUNE: NELSON B. C. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1901  PRICE FIVE "CENTS  TIME HOT YET OPPORTUNE  FOR    PROMULGATING    GOVERNMENT'S   INTENTIONS.  Withheld in Deference to the Wishes  of Kitchener and Milner���Proceedings in Commons.  *��  ^London, February 19.���Ia the  house of commons secretary Broderick gave an official "denial to the  story that orders had been issued  that, all Boers captured in khaki  uniforms were to'be shot. _  Colonial   secretary s Chamberlain  informed the house that a proclamation setting forth the intentions  of the government in the administration of the South- African colonies had already been drafted, but  had not been issued, in deference to  the opinion of general-Kitchener  and sir Alfred Milner that the time  was not yet opportune.3-  ' When the debate on-the address  in reply to'the king's speech at the  opening of parliament was resumed,  Herbert Henry   Asquith,   Liberal,  the former home  secretary  characterized rthe speech of Mr. Chamberlain - yesterday afternoon as  a  , revival of the "billingsgate of the  general' election."    He repudiated  the suggestion that .the opposition  favored the' undoing the annexation  vpf the. two .republics, but he said  a'settlement would'not 'be' acceler^  ated by truculent language-but  by-  the combination of a-strong army  capable of commanding respect and  terms not derogatory s to. either the  victors or_the vanquished. 'V1-* , _. -  i War   secretary.- Broderick, f who  .-followed,-.declared that the^/terms  "offered the^Boers^^erefbettw than  -'ever 'before"''-tendered^to^tt^-van-  quished,enemy.-   Leniency .to men  onv parole" .had: been a disastrous  failure.    He'appealed to the' opposition to stop the'delivering of mis-  ��� ohievous speeches and -the circula-  ~ tion of pamphlets which did an immense amount of harm in -South  Africa.- In.defending the govern-'  ment against the charge of failing  to reinforce general 'Kitchener,"Mr.  Broderick jaaid   30,000 horses, had  been sent out within three ^months  "and   they   hoped   by the end ,.of  March -to- liave increased \ general  Kitchener's   mounted .=���* forces   by  20,000 men." -   *��     "  Manila News Notes.  Manila,   February   19.���Colonel  Schuyler with 100 men of the 46th  regiment   on   the . gunbeat rBasco  landed on the Cavite coast near  Ternate and proceeding inland captured a small rebel garrison. Continuing hislnarch along a mountain  trail colonel Schuyler was attacked  by rebels'bf Tria's command. After  a sharp fight the enemy was beaten  and scattered. One American' was  killed and one was wounded.  The United States - transport  Rosencrans lias returned here from  the island of Guam after landing  there the Filipino prisoners who  have been transported to that place.  The prisoners were landed January  12th.. They- -occupy an - elegant  prison site four miles from Agana.  The prison is called the presidio. It  was situated on an ascent and strict  discipline was maintained.  The officials of the branch' of the  Hong Kong bank here have announced that Ross, the Englishman  who wrote a letter published in an  Australian paper criticizing the  Philippine -commission, American  officers, and'the American policy, in  general, has been ordered to ���' proceed'to Hong Kong. ' The British  community is well pleased that the  man has been sent away.  A Suggested Tariff.  London, February 19.���The Daily  Mail, in view of the necessity of  raising money for the war in South  Africa, still "in full blast," advocates a tariff for revenue purposes,  which ib says differs entirely from  a protective tariff, the virtues and  vices of which it is needless to discuss, although the speed and precision with which Russia has  brought the United States to their  knees by retaliation are most instructive. It suggests a 10 per cent  ad valorem, duty on foreign manufactures. This suggestion will probably find considerable support in  view of the almost- certain increase  pf the income tax.  Smelters Badly Needed.  , "Unless we can find a market for  our ore we will be forced to shut  down all operations by the middle  of next week." This was the statement, made by David Heap of  Sandon, secretary- of the v Last  Chance-Mining Company," who was  in Nel^ssJast evening en route to  TraiLflltlPfe��-5r  ._ Th^__l_8^OTife?B��SfeiPpi,,g  its orar^^aSgaQj^P^Brks at  Kaslo, but as th&r&3^^^&on- has  'now on handmuch more^Sre than  it   can " handle it   has refused to  accept any'further shipments/ The  'mine is looking much better than it  has since dewlopment was started.  Active work is being carried on, and  as the company is now running a  long     crosscut     tunnel,    in , ore  at a heavy expense, it would be impossible to do any more work unless  they could get returns from the ore.  Miv Heap said that they proposed  to continue work if they could.only  market .the ore.   The tramway has  for some time past been working to  its full capacity and��now all the ore  bins are full and there is no room  for further storage.  ,_ Mr. Heap leaves this morning for  Trail, where he will try to arrange  with the Canadian Smelting Works  so as to gain a temporary relief.* If  he can get a market until such time  as contracts can again beanade the  I operations   atT the  mine will not  have   to^ be   suspended.   t-As rthe  "smelter trouble has been brewing  for some time''the' company was  forced at the beginning of the year  to reduce its force from  100 to 75  men." Mr. Heap was   afraid 'that  another'^ reduction   of    the- v staff  would soon have to take place, in  any event.  _ ���,,^   ."Becoming Aroused:"Y     _r^  -E. S. Tapping, president ofthe_  -Trail board "of trade, was'in the-eity-  yesterday for a few   hours.    Mr.  Tapping has had - considerable experience in mining in this'province  and of-late has-been looking into  jthe question of, the .smelter .trouble.'  He^ stated "that, the .country was  being greatlylaffected by it'. - He is  in favor of having- an export "duty"  on the   production   of   silver-lead  mines.    The board of trade' has already taken this question up and it  ' lias authorized its delegates to. the  meeting of ��� the associated boards of  trade, which is held at YGreenwood  on   February ' 28th,   to make this  question one of the -main features  of that'meeting.   They -will try to  bring about a resolution by which  ' the Dominion government will be  ' asked to give a bounty on the productions of smelters .and' refineries  'and thus encourage such institutions  to   be jestablished in British jDol-  umbia at once.  18 IN NO HURRY ABOUT'IT  NICARAGUA CANAL MATTER CAN  BIDE ITS TIME.  Von Waldersee Has England and the  United States Guessing as to  His Latest Move.  .   London,  Lansdowne's  Mine Owners to Meet.  W. E. Zwicky of Sandon, man-  ageV^of_the_Payne_mine_and^.presU  dentLof the Mine Owners' Association, was in the" city yesterday en  route to Rossland. There he will  meet the central executive committee of the association, of which-a  meeting has been called to discuss  the American trusts and the relation they bear to the local smelters  and mining industries. Mr. Zwicky  would not express an opinion in the  matter as he thought that it should  first be discussed before the executive. He was 'satisfied, nevertheless, that if some immediate steps  were not taken to remedy the situation that a number of the galena  properties, and especially those of  the Slocan district, would be forced  to shut down.  February   ��� 19.���Lord  notification   to   Mr.  Choate may safely ^be taken as an  indication that the British government does not desire to force the  China' or Nicaragua questions to* an  issue any earlier than is absolutely  necessary.    It is   understood that  the United States ambassador was  responsible   for   bringing , up ^ the  ���Nicaragua matter, pointing out how  short'a time was left for an answer'1  before   the   lapsing   of   the  Hay-  Pauncefote treaty. - The reply of  lord Lansdowne did not by _any  means positively pledge the British  cabinet   to   make   a* decision,^ although it indicates that the United  States might expect, that so" far as  the Nicarag'uan question was concerned, any further consideration  on the part of the cabinet would.be  merely   informal,"as" the,foreign,  office has known the.nature.of the  replyTfor some weeks, which will  not vary, from the forecast, already  made1 in these dispatches. ���; -^ y:.-'" *  China; however, is ''another "matter:. .The   foreign . office    appears'  genuinely in,the dark as'to the real  significance of count ,voh' Walder-  sse's last order's.-' 'It is-.hoped that  by Friday information will be forthcoming to enable'Great Britain to  decide as to what is really going on  in the far east. ~ At 'present' she is  not more anxious than ,the United  States to take part" in an extended  campaign ihtb,the interior of China,  but.! the, repqrla^from the^jeat J>f  "action" are" sof-^  lord Lansdowne refrains from sending mandatory, dispatches or .committing himself to any definite line  of international action.  The American opposition to count  von Waldersee's' reported action receives cordial .sympathy from the  British, though it ,is thought -they  are inclined to doubt whether the  right'construction is placed upon  his motives. -Lord Salisbury has so  often put'England on-record as  oppoeedto aggressive military operations iii China that, officials here  can. scarcelyt conceive that count  von Waldersee would issue' orders  so utterly at variance with the attitude of Great Britain and the  United States.  warned to prepare for the resumption of operations.   "__'  The Bluff Worked.  -   London, February;! 9.���Dr. Morrison, wiring the Times from Pekin,  says: The Chinese "declare that the  threat of the Waldersee expedition  has been successful and that the  court has yielded and; issued a decree fully complying "with the demands of the foreign envoys on the  question   of  punishments.   'These  statements  require -corroboration,'  but  they   are   generally believed  here.   Commenting -editorially on  this   and   other  dispatches   from  'China, the Times says: The blank  ignorance of  the^'government regarding 'the WalderiseeV expedition  seems more suVprisin^than ever in  view of thetelegr'ams'we published  today. ��� If our Pekin news is correct  'the foreign envoys will have a curious experience in - discovering that  the most important" .feature of- the,  negotiations, has been" settled by an  expedition^ which 1 they ~w'ere' unaware of .      y. -_.._  WANTED TO TALK IN IRISH  REMARKABLE  COMMONS  SCENE    IN  YESTERDAY.

An Explanation.  Hockey Last Night.  In the hockey match which was  played at the'rink last evening between the clerks of the'wholesale  firms and the C. P. R. the latter  won by a score of 5 goals to 0. As  the teams are evenly matched the  game was strongly ' contested  throughout, and when time was  called the score was even, each side  having secured 5 goals. ' The game  was resumed and only a few minute elapsed before the C. P. RYhad  won the game by scoring the sixth  goal. About a week ago the two  teams played and the wholesale  clerks won.  To Start March First.  London, February 19.���The Waldersee expedition, according to a  dispatch to the Morning Post from  Tien-Tsin, is to start March 1. Its  motive and the mystery surrounding it are the subject of much comment. The Daily Graphic considers  that, whether it is a bluff or in  earnest, the whole thing is "stupid  and mischievous, tending, only to  make the powers ridiculous in the  eyes of the Chinese."  Berlin, February 19.���It is understood that United States ambassador White made* representations today to the foreign office regarding the reputed expedition of  count von Waldersee- into the interior of China, and that the foreign office gave him reassuring replies. It is understood that the  foreign office told Mr. White that  such expeditions, weve designed  chiefly to convince the Chinese  government that the powers would  not be trifled with.  The National Zeitung and other  inspired papers assert that field  marshal count von Waldersee has  no intention of embarking on a  large expedition in the interior of  China, but they say the Chinese  will find strong forces ready to act  if they continue to procrastinate.  Von Waldersee's sphere of action,  it is pointed out, is to be limited to  the province of Chi Li.  Chinese Notified.  London, February 19.���The Reu-  ter Telegraph Company has received  the following from Pekin, dated  February 19: The German, British  and Japanese legations notified the  Chinese that the allies were preparing an expedition toward Sian  Fu in the event of the court persisting in its present unsatisfactory  attitude regarding the punishments.  Thereupon the Chinese plenipoten-  tiaiies wired * urgently to Sian Fu  counseling immediate compliance  and pointing'out that now there  was only the question'of the death  of a few persons really deserving  such a fate, whereas an advance of  the allies would mean the death  and distress, of thousands, besides  causing the powers to treat China  with greater harshness than if a  settlement were arrived at without  further military operations.   Five I  Identified ^by 'Three  Perssons-'Police  Think They  Have a-Cltte to  Another of the Bandits^    -   -  O.UAHA, February 19.���The police  have under arrest James Callaghan,  charged with "complicity in.the ab/  duction of-Edward Cudahy/ jr., on  'the night of December 18th. *  Callaghan was arrested last Saturday, but the police have kept it a  secret in the hope of securing other  arrests. Young Cudahy has positively identified him as, the < man  who accosted him near the Cudahy  residence and represented himself  to be a sheriff from an adjoining  county and forced him into a  buggy, and also as tha man who  kept guard over him at the Melrose  mill house, during the thirty hours  he was kept a prisoner pending the  negotiations for the ransom of  $25,000 which Mr. Cudahy paid for  the return of his boy.  Dan H. Bussis, who sold a horse  and buggy to the two men who are  supposed to have used it to procure  the abduction, also identified  Callaghan as one of the men with  whom he made the deal.  Marie Larsen, a servant in tlie  employ of J. N. Patrick, of whom  the kidnappers rented a house, was  the, third person to identify Callaghan and says he is the man who  paid a month's rent in advance for  a cottage in Happy Hollow which  the bandits abandoned two weeks  before the abduction fearing discovery.  Tonight the police secured information which they expect will  lead to the arrest of another man  connected with the crinie. He is a  coachman of a family friend of Mr.  Cudahy, and it is claimed that he  has been aoting very queerly in the  matter ever since the kidnaping.  The chief of police says this man  will be arrested tonight or in the  London, -February 19.���Thomas  O'Dorinell,   Nationalist,   began his  address in'the' Irish language and  the  speaker   called   him to order  after he had spoken three or four  sentences,   reminding him that to  speak Irish was an unknown 'practice in the house of commons.   Mr.'  O'Donnell continued to speak in the  Irish tongue, greatly to~the Nationalists .around  him.   The   speaker  severely requested him to desist.  ; Mr. John Redmond, the Nationalist leader, said:*  "There is no written- or ^ unwritten*" rule' against a  member'using'the ilanguage. which  is-most   familiar   to him.,_I once'  Heard a'jnenabef of the * New ^Zealand house of representatives speak  in'the'Maori.language."

At this  point the speaker, stopped him- peremptorily:*- Several ��� other .< Irish  members denounced the limitation  to English imposed by the speaker.  ���A Rumor.  It was rumored here yesterday  that the Slocan Sovereign had suspended operations. As no definite  information    could    be    obtained  THE Plan an Aerial Railway. -  The Gravity Railroad Company  is   the   latest organization  in St.  Louis   county, Missouri.     It-was^  formed by several citizens' of Pat-'  tonville, who say it is designed incid-.  en tally to unravel the tangle caused  by the fight between certain citizens,-of  Pattonville and; the   St.  Louis, St. Charles & Western Rail-'  way 'Company,   but primarily to  demonstrate    that    aerial    transportation is not impracticable/"'  The officers of the association say,,  the device by which their aerial car]  'will be navigated was furnished to  them by an inventive genius-in a  St. Louis .department store - who  conceived the idea thatthe bundle-  carrier principle utilized in large  stores J*could' be adapted to the  transportation of cars carrying passengers. The basket, or car, which  will be constructed will hold eight  persons.', It will be operated by  ,electricity and on precisely the plan  of.the department store basket. A  strong cable wire will be suspended  -in midair and on this cars will'slide  from Pattonville^to Damon's, farm.  It may^be raised and" lowered, and  is expected to make very fast time.

The shut-down is said to be due to  the smelter trouble. There is no  doubt there is a number of other'  mines in thatdistrict which will  soon be in the same position. The  Whitewater ' mine, near Whitewater, has already'greatly reduced  its force owing to this trouble.- It  is said the company has on hand  over 700 tons -of sacked ore which  it is impossible to market. A reduction in the force at tliis mine  may shortly take place.  Sells Horseflesh as Meat.  John Ram, 52 years old, the proprietor of a butcher shop in New  York, was sent to prison in default  of a fine by justice Jerome for selling horseflesh as first-class sirloin  steak. Counsel for Ram asked that,  as it was the butcher's first offence,  the court extend clemency by a  suspension of sentence. Assistant  corporation counsel Steiuert, who  prosecuted, opposed the request/  saying .the practice of selling horseflesh was becoming too prevalent in  New. York and must be stopped.  Justice Jerome said the offence  with which Ram was charged was  a most reprehensible one and sentenced him to pay a fine of $100 or  30 days in the city prison, whither  the butcher was taken.

When we have done  that<<  we are ready to go back  to South <  Africa to fight  for   the   empire." .  The   Strathconas are   being overwhelmed with kindness everywhere.  EASTERN  CANADA   TELEGRAMS.  Opposed to Hostile Expeditions.  Washington, February 19.���Minister Conger has been instructed by(  cable to communicate to the foreign  minister at Pekin the feeling of the  United States government that further hostile .expeditions should not  be indulged in at this time.  Brief Precepts.  It is a jellyfish creed that has no  bones of difficulty.  Abiding achievement is greater  than restless activity.  Evil fastens on us only because it  finds affinity in us.  Too much service steals our time  for serious thoughts.  A good man not only knows how  to live; he knows how to die.  Charity draws from an exhaust-  less fountain; the more it gives the  more it has to give.

The vote upon the two money  by-laws yesterday was unusually  light. The reason for this can  doubtless be accounted for by the  fact that most ratepayers looked  upon the submission of the by-laws  in the light of a bookkeeping expedient, and not in the light of any  fresh liability. The passage of the  by-laws will now give the present  council a clean sheet and the spending of the whole of the current  revenue without any charges  against it for the previous year's  work.

SUNDAY  OBSERVANCE.  gainidg ground in Canada, California and the hill districts of British  India. *  There are orders, such as tho Poor  Clares, Trappists and Carmelites,  which go iu for fasting and  other mortifications of the body,  but they are by far the least numerous. Most religious communities  live well. Loyola expressly forbids  mortification of the body, which  might render the Jesuit a less efficient Soldier of tho Cross. Ho  wanted his disciples to be able-  bodied, enterprising, resourceful.  Saint Vincent forbade every attempt to rise above the common  law, unless in observing the law of  celibacy and rising at cock crow in  the morning. His daughters kept a  plain,'excellent table.  JUDGMENT FOR DEFENDANT  During the past four days no  Eastern Canadian mail has been received in Nelson over that branch  off James J. Hill's railroad known  as the Nelson & Foit Sheppard.  Breaks of four days in the mail  service are inconvenient to business  men, and attention is called to the  matter in the hope that the postmaster-general may make such  changes as will ensure something  like a regular service, even should  it be found necessary in doing so to  pay the Canadian mail subsidy to a  Canadian transportation company.  The Vancouver World says there  are untold millions of tons of coal  lying   hidden   in ' the ���   bosom    of  mother earth, and   therefore   the  people   of   Kootenay who   oppose  James J. Hill's attempt  to corner  the present available fuel. supply  are acting the part of dogs in the  manger.

Methodist church,  the -Young People's Union of the  Baptist church and the Christian  Endeavor of the Presbyterian  church met in St. Paul's church last  evening/ During the .course of the  meeting some consideration was  given to "the matter of the obt<  servance of Sunday in Nelson when  the' following resolution-was moved  andfadopted ::" r* >^,  ���\ "Wliereas/there exists in the city  of Nelson a condition' "of affairs  utterljrat variance''with Christian  principles,* good .government, and  the' laws of*ourv"country; saloons  are publicly kept open beyond'the  hours allowed by statute and* only  ostensibly closed" on-tlie Sabbath;  and, whereas, gambling -is known  to exist in'saloons," aiid in the _ rear.  , of cigar stores and news stands;'  and, whereas,, the t Sabbath is  flagrantly desecrated By' tlie playing of , baseball ahd^'other ''games  .upon the.public' recreation grounds,  disturbing the" peace of our citizens  [and setting a bad example'to the"  young 'growing up" in our midst,'  and disregarding the divine intent  of the* Sabbath as a day of rest and  worship, and turning it into one of  hilarity, and, in many instances, of  "dehauchery r*, ' Jr  Be it therefore Yresolved,'!. That  'we, the United Young People's"Societies' of" Christian Endeavor of  ithecity of .Nelson, desire to plac^  ourselves on record as " opposed to  the above recited violations of both  the moral, and- civil laws, and are  determined that we will' use every  -lawful and-persuasive.means in our_  power to bring about a better condition of affairs. 2. That we are  heartily in sympathy with the  movement just inaugurated to form  a local branch of ��� the Lord's Day  Alliance of Canada in j^ur city and  will aid it by every means in our  power. 3. That a copy of these  resolutions be entered upon the  minute book by the secretary of  our local union of Christian Endeavor, and that a copy of the same  be given to the press for publication.  j    Fortunes of Great Orders.  Paris, February 18.���Two closely  printed volumes of 1000 pages each  have been distributed to the members of the chamber. The printing  of them has cost ��800. They are  packed with statistics on the fortunes in real estate of the religious  orders, and show their progress  since 1850, wheu the worst wave of  reaction that France ever experienced set in. That year they  owned properties valued at ��2,000,-  000. Their ostensible real estate  has since risen to ��14,000,000, but  the wealth held in trust and otherwise kept out of sight must, it is  thought, considerably exceed ��120,-  000,000. Should this ratio of increment continue they would in  another half century possess ��400,-  000,000 to ��800,000,000. t  Therearealtogether 3210 religious  houses in France. Of these 2784  have schools of various kinds. Since  1877 the religious orders have  swarmed in Algeria, where they  number 30,130 members. The numbers are not given of that swarm to  the.other French, colonies, and to  Canada and British . India, - where  Roman pathplic. enterprise is very  'great. Sacred -Heart, convents, go  in for elegant education for young  women.   They have beens rapidly.  Supreme Court- Business.  When the supreme court opened  yesterday morning Mr. Justice Irving, gave his judgment in the case  of Briggs vs. Newswander, and it  was in fayor of the defendant. He  stated that he had found all the  facts in favor of the plaintiff, but  he held that" the contracts which  were made between the parties involved were so vague that it was  Impossible for any court to enforce  them. He therefore gave judgment  in favor of the defendant without  cost. Action has already been taken  to appeal the case. _   "    ���  The  next case before the court  was that of Wigen vs. the Nelson  & Bedlington -Railroad  Company.  It appears that the plaintiff owns  a mineral claim near  Creston, and  some time   ago the railroad company constructed its tra.cks across  it. -: Mr. Wigen is j-sning.l for - what  damages' the,* court  might" award.  >Mr..Wigen was   the-first', to' give  evidence, and-'if went-to show that,  five tons of'goocTqre were'destroyed  .and covered up,,aud that a tunnel  and 'shaf fcwvera. closed-which' made-  it impossible to develop the claim''- *-  , M.'S.'Davisf Mr.'Nelson1 and J/Bf  Church also gave evidence on behalf  of*the~plaintiff.~" When the case; of  plaintiff.was-completed the- solici-  - tors moved for a non-suit,  but- the  judge ruled<-against it.- -J. H. Gray,  aTcivil engineer of Kaslo, was giving  evidence'for the- defendants when  court adjourned-at' 4:301 yesterday  afternoon. - He stated that the'tun-  . nel and shaf t had -been Opened, up'  and that the property,was- iu good-  . condition for being developed.---  ., -The old story connected with this  -trouble - is an' interesting one. -As  -the construction of tlie,road approached-   the    property-  Wigen  'warned the men that they should  advance no further.   He also built  [a. fence across his place in order to  stop   their-   advance. - The- road  gradually advanced, and as it encroached upon the edge of \the property more exciting events occurred.  Wigen had the- engineers ~arrested  and they retaliated in a like manner.    A special train tdok them all  away to be tried before a justice of  the peace. - The various cases were  dismissed with costs.*   Wigen then  -tried --for-an-injunction���but-that-  failed, and now he is after damages.  mimiilr,trrnliiiiilllliilitilirmn|j  Y Ladies' Misses' and I  Children's Under-muslins   Ij  |       at Unheard of Prices       |  xxxxxxxnnx  ���*____.!__2fe ___2___*~__S_ -__S.r______t ________*_____!* "__2_r_____s ���_______����� ^ ���.______*��� ^k *^�� ^ ��� !��*t  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  TITnTTTT*nHTTTTTTTTTTrTIIIIimiTTT*>fTT��  to  to  to  to  to  Irvine & Co.

ON  THE EMPEROR'S THRONE.'
BY PETER SHONFKLD.,
,.    Tn'these days, of-^keen--.compete
tion',  money-making : and1 sensual
r*     - v, - -i      ■",       v -
indulgence, thoughtful'; peopleVcan",
"discern   unmistakable   signs   of   a
coming regime that will Jbe totallyr
different to • all' previously existing
institutions. Great revolutions have
taken place in many countries with
theii'j attendant horrors of rapine
and ."bloodshed,   but1" in  the -near
future we shall'find a complete subversion of- the -present^social sjrs-
-tem introduced in a quiet ariH'pekce-
ful manner.   The great majority of
the people have in their blind ignorance   submitted' to the will and'
caprices of their powerful masters.'
Now that they have 'acquired.in'-
telligence aud havei-been sufficiently
- educated  to think.foTr themselves-'
they are rapidly freeing themselves,
from their slavish surroundings.;   ,:
The grand-aud noble spirit of democracy' has   produced ' men   .of
" worth   Who have" proved * conclusively that "blue;blobd" is of'little
value unless backed up'by brain's
and intelligence.'   The great "Labor
Movement" is spreading 'slowly; but
surely in every civilize-d country,
and its influence 'and strength are
viewed with the utmost alarm by
its opponents.   The note of warn-1
i _   ing is.constantly.being sounded in
their   ears   and   their    uneasiness
is plainly visible by their peculiar
ahd forcible antagonism.   At one
time rigorous and -repressive measures are introduced, to be succeeded
byaseries of concessions.   In the
old worM"many~time-honored instil
tions that have  existed . for. centuries   and   were   supposed to be
firmly rooted in , the hearts*- of- the»
people have had their, foundations
undermined  and "have ' been'   replaced by others more conformable"
to the spirit of progress and liberty
that is advancing, with such rapid
strides. '. , ■
The.extension of.the franchise and
the introduction of the ballotjiave
placed a wonderful weapon' in-the
hands of the masses'which will assuredly yield' most extraordinary
results. The recent Dominion election in Yale-Cariboo is a convincing
proof of the power of the workers,
when a little more unanimity would
have achieved a grand success. The
workers of every degree and calling
must cordially co-operate and fight
the good fight together, ever onrthe
watch to meet and conquer the •. insidious proposals and nefarious
schetoes that are so continually introduced to thwart the- higher objects of the toilers.
The grand old statesman Gladstone in many of his wonderful and
eloquent speeches often alluded to
the distressing conditions that
operated so biCnefully upon the
masses and urgently advocated the
great need of popular reform, predicting the great changes that must
inevitably take place in our social
and industrial relations. . His prophetic voice is often now echoed by
broad-minded statesmen, even those
connected with the highest aristocracy. . They- cannot disguise the
fact that the people will no longer
consent' to be mere drudges and
-' Only one woman  in the world
has ever sat on "the^ throne of the
emperor of China. She is an American girl, Miss Mary Conger1-Pierce
of Des Moines. American girls-have
become   noted for  attaining' high
positions abroad and making a conquest of princes and dukes.   But
Miss Pierce has reached the highest
position'of all, a seat on the throne
reserved for the supreme; ruler/ of
the largest and most autocratically
^.governed   country, among" all jthe
nations of history, ancient, medieval
or modern.   This enviable position
came to. Miss Pierce as the happy
climax to the most perilous experiences during" ttie'siege of Pekiu., As;
the ward and niece of major Edwin
H. Conger, American  minister to-
China,'- she shared; the   privations^
an i terrors that befelluall-the foreigners in the. legation buildings. *7
Ou the 28th day of August, 1900/-
the allies, conducted thejiistorical
triumphal, march through, 'the em-]
peror's" -''Forbidden City:" This step
was taken' in ordef-that^tKe most'
^supreme disgrace 'should"' be visited
upon the-riiliug^dynastyin China.
The "Forbidden City" was sacred
."ground, and" the pressure of a for-
' eign foot upon its sacred flagstone
,wafc,as great an' ignominy as could
befall the -government of the Chinese empire.   No foreigner had ever
before caught a glimpse of tbe mysteries that lay inside the Kou Tou
..gate and'beyond the moat that surrounds the high wall oftheHsu-
Ching-Cheng.;-. The   allied   troops
marched through, the Purple palace
without a halt.   Then the' general
officers,   their respective  staffs, a
-handful 'of.othervofficers and & scattering of newspaper correspondents,
members of the various diplomatic
corps,   and t missionaries   .walked
through"    the    "Forbidden   City"
slowly^ enough to view some of its
.wonders and magnificence. "~        ,_
YA'fewwomeni among whom was
lady Claude Macdonald, wife of the
British minister at' Pekin, accompanied  the   little, party.       They
passed straight through the palace
grounds, along the" Courts of Harmony and Secure Peace, out of the".
Kou Ton gate'and over the bridges"
across the moat.     The gate, was
closed  behind   them,   and   orders
were given that no foreigner should
be  allowed   to 'pass "through   it
again.   It was then thought that
no "foreign devil" would ever see
the interior of the Forbidden City
again.   Miss Pierce was not one of
the  favored  party    who    passed
through   the; Forbidden   City   on
August 28th, but she is an American girl and did not give up '-hope
of seeing the emperor's palace, notwithstanding that orders had been
given that no -one should re-enter
it.     Brigadier-general Wilson" arrived in Pekin too late to take part
in the "triumphal march," and on
September 22nd he and the American commissioner, Mr. Rankin, decided to visit the Forbidden • City.
Learning of their intention," Miss
Pierce   so   arranged matters that'
when   the  paity- started   on   the
morning of September 22nd she was
a member of it.*.-
No less a personage.than;,the old
Chinese comptroller of the Purple
Palace, theY emperor's residence,
acted as guide for the interested
and delighted Americans. They
did not leave a nook - or cranny of
the curious historic palace unvisited,
and they were the first, foreigners
to view many part of-the residence
of the "Son of Heaven," which tha

visitors on the 28th of August had
missed in their tour of observation.
The crowning episode off- the day's
adventures came when the Ydoor of
the throne room was opened by the
attendants, at the reluctant-command of the Chinese comptroller.
For the first time in history a~.white
man's foot was placed on the"marble
flagstones that led to the beautiful
carved^ gateways  and barriers of
stepsv and   railings    which,    surmounted with vases of carved jade,
guards the !'Sacred Pearl," as ythe
seat of the Dragon Throne is called,
from contact with. mortals.   Miss
Pierce glanced,up at tthe roof of
gilded woodwork above the throne
with an expression of wonder and
"enjoyment. < -r
"Oh! I wonder if I could sit on
the throne of the emperor of China?"
she exclaimed.- _.
General Wilson -gravely assured
her that while such a proceeding
on her part would be entirely
foreign to precedent; there were no
objections to her doing so. So tbe
fair American girl ran lightly up
the steps and with a charming little
laugh of satisfaction sat right down
in the place which had never been
occupied by anyone save an emperor
of the Flowery Kingdom, and will,
in all-probability, neyer again be
occupied by anyone outside the
royal family in China for _ all. time
to come. The Chinese attendant,
the imperial- comptroller, horrified
at the sacrilege, fell-forward on his
face as if suddenly stricken dead..
It is an' honor that" not even the
crafty and, powerful empress-- dowager of China can ever hope to' attain. There were many other^ interesting things .which Miss "Pierce
enjoyed.on that day when she was
queen.       "        -      -    ^„

He has  listed his watches at eastern prices.  - The Crow's Nest Pass steamer,  due to arrive here from Kootenay J  ��� Landing at 4:30 last, evening, was  over nine hours late.

Hughes of Alamo, who is  largely interested in mining properties of that section, arrived in  the city yesterday. The properties  tliat he is .'interested in. are the  Idaho, Trade Dollar, Sunset of  Jackson Basin' and Utica groups.  These properties and others of that  district are snowing up well as. far  as development work is concerned,  but the smelter trouble, which is  causing no small alarm, has had its  bad effect on the country already.  The shipments which fised to be  comparatively good are now small  and in some cases no ore is being  shipped at all. In many instances  the different'companies have, been  forced to store their ore and'now  have ajarge quantity on hand. /The  staffs' at\a number of the ..mines  haveYbeen reduced and work" is progressing slowly^ Mr. Hughes'"went  on to'say that ''if - the trouble was  not soon settled tlie result would be  that a niinlber of mines would be  dlosed down.y*  The 'Trade 'Dollar and Sunset  groups, which*"are situated in the  Jackson'basin in the Three Foiks  section, are ftow looking exceedingly well. They are situated on  the same .vein, _. but on opposite  slopes.._ Eight men are engaged at  the^Suiiset and twelve at' the other  mine. The development consists of  tunneling, shafting and upraising.  There are^ two veins-on the property and they average from three  to six feet in width. Several ship:  ruent's have1 been .made from these'  properties and the returns obtained  were good. >.���/;       >   -  The Idaho is situated some distance from these, and it 'is also a  promising property. Extensive development has-been done on it "and  operations will be continued during  the winter Vith a force of 20 men.  The work consists of - upraises and'  tunnel's. Although no, new strikes  have been, meide,,some new bod es^  of goad^/orgjiaye.. been uncovered  and therein ^promises to be/as rich  as depttfjs obtained.;.-_..., -. ���-    ->-  The 'Utica-fclaimr situated,, ac the"  head-;,of ,Twelve-mile creek,.on the  divide bet^eW;tlie south forks . of  the Kaslo.^ afja .Carpenter.- creeks,  proves',asf riches the.-other claims.
