C, THURSDAY MORNING, MAY 30, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  NELSONITES IN GOAT RIVER  ARE   MAKING   MINES    OUT    OF  PROSPECTS.  T. G. Procter in the Alice and CN. W.  Rolfe in   the   Delaware Have  Two  Good. Properties.  The Goat River district is going  to be tlie scene of great activity  this summer unless all the signs of  the time fail. During the past two  months a number of promising  claims have passed into good hands,  upon neatly ,all of wliich active  work' is being done.  The chief event of the past  month has been the cutting of tlio  Alice ledge, in tho No. 2 tunnel.  The crosscut tunnel, which is some  (500 feet long, .cuts the ledge at a  depth of 200 feet and exposes a  vein (5 feet in width, four feet of  wliich is clean shipping oro and  two feet' of concentrating ore.  ���Since T. G. Procter, ,representing  the York <fc Lancaster company,  bonded the Alice group front  George Alexander of Kaslo in September, l'JOO, development has been  prosecuted vigorously. Drifts have  been run north and south'on* the  vein in the 'upper. level, and a winze  sunk 75 feet, all opening up the ore  body. The work lias been carried  on in a very systematic maimer  under the foremanship of J. H.-imp-  ' son. The Alice can liow be classed  as one of the big silver-lead mines  of British Columbia.  On the Erie, owned by W. E.  Forsfcer, and sibilated near the  Alice, a large body of galena was  uncovered last week in doing  assessment. " Since the strike was  made work has beon continued on  the ledge and ifc is showing up ex-  trqjnoly .well. It is undoubtedly  the Alice ledgethat is, exposed ou  tiie Erie. '"'.' V-2  ".-���.---'��������  ������   '���-*..  Another strike of rich gilena  that gives promise of being ft big  thing was made last .week by  Charles Diamond near the town of  Kitchener! upon which he and his  partners staked four claims. The  vein is four feet wide with about a  foot of clean, ore. Diamond and  his partners have already commenced driving a short crosscut  tunnel to tap the ledge, and if the  vein shows up well when cut, work  will be carried on extensively, as  tho owners are in a position to do  considerable development. The  claims are situated within two  miles of the "'Canadian Pacific railway.  The Wilson ��� brothers, who recently took a lease and bond on  the Waverley group of claims near  Kuskonook, are clearing'out the  _traiLu ]_J3oulder_creek. preparatory-  to "packiug down the ore for shipment, a carload being sacked ready  oh the dump.  Oh the Delaware group, owned  by Messrs. Rolfe and Hill, considerable work is being done under the  supervision of N. W. Rolfe. The  government has completed a trail  of six miles leading from Creston  Junction to the Delaware. Tho  showing on the Delaware group is  regarded as the best in Goat River  district.1  Work on the Valparaiso and on  the Imperial companies' properties  on Goab creek has been discontinued. A dispute arose as to the ownership of a certain piece of ground,  both companies claiming it, and not  being able to come to an agreement  amicably, they intend to settle it  in the law courts. Through an  oversight on the part of the Valparaiso company they allowed the  Franklin mineral claim to elapse ou  the 15fch of May, through the nonperformance of the assessment. W.  A, Davies, president of the Imperial company, promptly staked it as  the Climax on the IGfch of May,  and he has commenced an action in  the supreme court adversing the  application for a crown grant of  the Valparaiso company's government claim, ou the ground that ib  conflicts with the Climax.  Will Be Sent Back.  Ogdknshurg, N. Y., May 29.���  Tlie cases against 00 of the. 99  Chinamen held at the county jail  for unlawful entry into the United  States closed here today, after two  days'session before United States  commissioner' Gray. H. E. Owen,  assistant United States district  attorney of Port Henry,, and Ran- ]  dolph Isarr, Chinese inspector of  Boston, represented the government, with T. W. Wallace of Platts-  burg, inspector. Decisions have  been rendered in 25 cases, in 20 of  which deportation back to China is  ordered. A large percentage of the  remainining cases will carry deportation. A strong point urged  by the government is that certain  ports are stated afc which Chinamen may enter this country. North  Berk, on the border, where all these  Chinamen w^re' arrested, is not  such, a port, hence the action.  Racing to a Banquet.  New York, May 29.���The steamer  St. Paul Avhich sailed for Southampton today carried Clement A.

MONTREAL, 29.���I Franklin of  409 La Gauchetiere street this city  has received a letter from the  militia authorities at Bloemfontein,  dated April 27th, announcing the  death of-'his son, Joseph Franklin,  which occurred April 23rd in the  military hospital of that place of  enteric fever.  HALIFAX, 29, - There is a  possibility of a strike in Sydney on  Juno 1st. The bricklayers, masons,  and such workmen some time ago  notified the contractors that they  were expected to put.the nine-hour  system in force on that date. The  contractors have as yet taken no  definite action and the labor  unions here are calling for a meeting this week to take action.  Jesse. Coulter of   Spokane, who  was formerly connected  with  the  local hydraulic compauy operating  ou  Forty-nine  creek, is registered  at the Hume.    Mr. Coulter will  be  remembered by a few Nelsonites as  the man who. a few years ago they  confidently  expected would  make  them  all   rich   with   the   gold  of  Forty-nine creek.    Mr. Coulter was  not the originator of the hydraulic  scheme, but he was called in after  the directors, composed of lawyers,  real estate agents and surveyors,  had chubbed along for three or four  years   and   accomplished   nothing.  The   combined knowledge   of   the  lawyers, real estate agents and surveyors was not equal to the task of  getting rid of, the  big boulders in  the creek  diggings, and until they  were got rid of it was impossible to  continue washing.    It was for this  'work  that  Mr. Coulter was called  in, and  in three days after he got  upon the ground  he had the boulders shooting over the waste dump  like   pieces  of   cork.     Everything  went along fine, a cleanup of something   like   $5000 was   made   and  everybody was happy, and they remained  so  until  Mr. Coulter  told  them  that their ground, so'far as  successful operation by a company  was concerned, was worked oufc.  Mr. Coulter is no longer connected with hydraulic propositions, being novv manager of the Second Relief miue, near Erie, which he secured1 some years ago for Messrs.  Finch,-& Campbell of Spokane. Development'.lupqii _fchisproperty, has  advanced steadily ever since,"and it.  can now be said to be a mine.  Three tunnels Have been run in  upon the property, the longest of  which is about 1000 feet, which  give backs of fully 400 feet. The  ledge is a good quartz, with considerable iron?in it, the average width  being about four feet. Much of the  ore goes $05 in gold, and it is  thought that the ledge will average  $30.  The property - has now reached  the shipping stage, and after extensive experiments the owners have  decided upon a concentration and  amalgamation system for the treatment of the ore, and are now proceeding wifch the installation of a  ten-stamp mill for coarse crushing,  a Huntington mill, wi (ley tables  and Hue vanners. By utilizing tho  -Stamp-milLfor���the-coarse_crushing-  and the Huntington mill for the  liner work it is thought that the  output pf the plant can be brought  up to 45 tons per day. The bulk of  the machinery, including a compressor plant, is now on ythe road,  and it is Mr. Coulter's intention to  have the plant in operation inside of 90 days. In the meantime a sawmill is being set up  for the purpose of getting out  lumber for the flume and tramway,  which will it ia expected be completed before, the crushing aud amalgamating plant is in readiness.  This preparatory work will furnish  employment for something like 00  men. Mr. Coulter says Messrs.  Finch & Campbell have spent  already something like $100,000 in  developing the Second Relief, and  fully $9000 in improving the means  of communication with the property. His present mission to Nelson  is to secure joint action on the part  of his company, the Hastings Exploration Syndicate and the government to replace the bridge over the  Salmon near Erie which was taken  out during tho recent freshet.  Powers Begin to Agree.  Berlin, May 29.���The correspondent of the Associated Press  learns- authoritatively that all tho  powers have accepted Germany's  proposition to withdraw field marshal count Von Waldersee from  China and surrender the chief command. In accepting the proposition the United States expressed  satisfaction at the extremely tactful and skillful manner in which  count Von Waldersee discharged  his most difficult duties and at his  great; courtesy toward American  officers.   The   other pow'erp,  espe- J  cially Great Britain, have expressed  themselves similarly.- In German  circles the British, proposition that  China pay the indemnity by issuing  bonds, making the interest and  sinking payable thereon yearlj', is  now regarded as certain of being  accepted. Perhaps the acceptance  will be unanimous. Germany's contingent remaining iii Pe Chi Li, it  is learned on authority, will be  somewhat over *4000:men. The officials here deprecate' tho idea that  Germany has any private scheme  ) in view in keeping so many men iu  China. Tlie troop's, are staying  there only as a guaranty of the fulfillment of the peacefconditions.  Knocked Out in/tho Fifth.

Boundary Creek Creates Havoc.  Greenwood, May 28.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Heavy rains the  past few days have caused disaster  along Boundary creek, w_hich__ has  risen considerably. In town the  Dead wood-street bridge and the  bridge leading to the smelter were  washed away, as also the crib work  on Boundary avenue, entailing a  damage of $4000. The bridge connecting the railway station wifch  the city is in a precarious condition. Down at Boundary falls the  old Dewdney bridge was washed  out, and at -Midway the timely action of the citizens in blowing out  a log jam saved the bridge there.  Determined Tramps.  Greenwood, May 29 ���[Special to  the Tribune].���At the point of a  revolver three tramps attempted to  board the Eholt-Phoenix combination train near Oro Denero siding  last night.

"   ANOTHER NEGRO ROASTED  KITCHENER'S GREAT FUTURE  ._  MAY BE THE HOME OF A GEEAT  IRON INDDSTBY.  Montreal  Men   Are   Now Exploring  Goat River's Big Iron Ledge with ,  Diamond  Drills.  Brutal Crime .Quickly, Avenged.  ' . Bartow, Florida, May 29.���Fred  RochelleJ" a negro," SS^years" of ago,  ; who'at noon yesterday criminally,  assaulted and then murdered Miss  Lena Taggert, a well known and  respected white woman bf this city,  was burned at the stake here this  afternoon in the presence of a  throng of people. The burning was  ou the scene of the negro's crime,  within 100 yards of the principal  thoroughfare of this city. The  assault and murder was one of the  boldest and coldest-blooded crimes  ever committed in Florida. At 10  o'clock yesterday morning Miss  Taggert, who was born and raised  in' this place and was a woman of  good family and reputation, went  fishing alone in a small rowboat  she kept at the citybj-idgejvver  "Piaco"creek"-"Tllis is~in~fnil view of  the public thoroughfare.  A few minutes before noon deciding to return home, she rowed  her boat to the bridge and made it  fast. A negro man was fishing  from the bridge at the time. Miss  Taggart started home, and had proceeded only a few steps iu the  swamp toward the open prairie,  and thence to the street, when she  was approached by Rochelle, who  had been hiding iu the swamp. He  seized her and she broke loose and,  screaming, ran from the swamp  into the prairie, where he overtook  her. After the assault, while she  was prostrate, he held her with his  hands and knees and taking his  knife from his pocket, cut her  throat fiom ear to ear, causing instant death.  He then walked to the negro who  had been fishing on the bridge and  who was thoroughly frightened  and asked him what he should do  with the body. He was told to  leave it where it was, but unheed-  ful of this request, he took the  bleeding form in his arms and carried it back to the swamp, threw it  down and escaped into the interior  of the swamp. In a few minutes  the crime had been reported, and in  less than an hour practically the  entire city was in arms and a well-  armed posse was moving in every  direction in search of the criminal.  Bloodhounds were secured and all  night a fruitless search was continued. This morning no trace of  the negro had been secured, but  about noon he was captured and  turned over to the authorities. A  mob quickly gathered, tore him  away from the oflicers, and, taking  him to the scene of the crime,  burned him at the stake.  * v"  Some    interesting    'development  work is now going ou in the Goat ;  River mining division,  which may',  result in the establishment in that,  district of the greatest iron industry iu Canada.

Newport, Rhode Island, May 29.  ���The Constitution left here at 9:40  this morning for a practice spin up  the bay. While she was out the  wind hauled about until it blew  from the southeast and became  stronger and when she returned it  was enough to give the big boat  something of a test and to drive  her fast enough to throw the foam  from both sides of her bow as she  reached up the bay. She was  maneuvered considerably during  the two and a quarter hours she was  out, the crew showing life in the  tacks and the boat coming about ia  magnificent style.  Strikers Win Out.

VHg^^eeg&t&** M .*&3&&&&&&*&&*'  ��tte ��rtbune  There   are people who Wonder  why more British capital does not  come to this province for investment in mines  and  other business  ventures.    If   these   people would  only look into the situation a little,  they would not wonder.' How many  mining and'.'industrial, companies  organized in the old country, doing  business in British Columbia, have  paid dividends?   Has there been a  return on the actual capital, so invested  of 2 per ceiit in the way of  dividends?   This may be the result  of bad management, or it may be  because   our   mines   are   no good.  Capital will not continue to flow to  a country that returns it nothing.  That there  is  mineral   iu  British  Columbia cannot be.disputed; and  it cannot well. be said   that  the  country is lacking  in other natural  resources.      But,    somehow,    the  dividends   earned   by the' mining  and   industrial   companies,   whose,  head offices are in the old country,  are not so large in  the aggregate  as   to be' enticing   to   capitalists.  This is the reason why capital is  shy of coming here,  aud  all  the  yarns .told    about    capital   being  scared away from the province by  bad   laws and   labor troubles are  mere moonshine.  NELSON, May 29th, l'OI.���To the Editor of  The Tribune���Sir: In reference to your'article  of today, in regard to materials for the new public building, I may say that it is not the intention  of the department of public works to substitute  Calgary fand stone for local marble.: My instructions are, te have the work'done in accordance  with the specifications, giving preference to local  materials when up to the standards called for in  iho specilications. ,  -,-, '*,- JAMKS A.

Leading Liberals are of, the  opinion that instead of taking in  another Liberal like Brown of New  "Westminster,. premier Dunsmuir  should reorganize his cabinet and  make it straight Conservative.

Be Bonus on Eefined Lead.  To the  Editoi-  of The  Tribune:.  As   the   federal   authorities   have  granted a bonus of five ($5) dollars  per   ton   upon   all   lead   products  refined in the Dominion, which was  suggested by the large and influential delegation from . this province  to Ottawa, it should behoove the  citizens of British Columbia to take  the necessary steps for the erection  of such works for the  manufacture  and refining of lead products in this  province.    Nelson being situated inc  the center of a lead < producing dis-'  trict   and   accessible   to.   different  transportation companies,with coal,  coke and wood at their door, should  put forth every effort to have these  works established iii that city.  Our  citizens  should  offer; such inducements to a bona fide coin pany that  would   secure these works".in the  leastpossibleltime. i^_This_mightj3eJ:  done in several ways,* such as'offer-'  ing a free sight, free from taxation,  or a cash bonus. /  I have noi doubt that some of the  eastern cities will take up - this  question shortly, and if the people  of British Columbia don't make a  move, this industry will" be irre-'  trievably lost to oiir province,  China being the "great lead market.  TheC. P."R." Co. no doubt would  give every inducement as regards-  rates and the finding of a suitable  market for the manufactured products. Knowing the interest which  you' have always taken ,in any  movement whicli was for phe benefit of our citizens and the province  in general, I hope that you will  through your most valuable paper,  The Tribune, keep this matter before the public until such time as  said works are an established fact  in some part of our province. Nelson, in my opinion, is the proper  place for these works. Thanking  you in advance for space,  J.F.Hume.  Victoria, May 27 th, 1901.  Abrogated the Agreement.

FRANZ  JOSEPH UNBOSOMS HIMSELF  TO A FEIEND.  Austria's Aged Monarach  Reviews  a  Tragical Past, a Melancholy Present  and Sees Only a Dark Future.  from  Mme.  in  a  Paris, May 29.���A letter  the emperor of Austria to  Smirnoff, who recently died  convent near here, has been found  among the deceased's effects. The  lady was at one time a-member of  tlie emperor's court and they became so intimate that a scandal  was created. The letter is written  in French and is as follows :  "Dear Friend : It is not at 50 that  these* reflections, come;';* it is when a  man is, like myself, over seventy  years old, and there can no longer  be any illusory.negligence.of-figures  in his thought. I, yes, have reached  the point where! cannot blind myself to the fact that most of my  contemporaries have gone. At  seventy the human machine is  pretty well played. If the thing  keeps on running,as in my cane, it  is anomalous, and tho granted extension cannot be long. I brood  over tliis continually, and I really  cannot conceive how a man of my  years can think of anything else  but approaching death. With mc,  .death mingles.wit.h every thought-,  every action of the day. Each  pang -of'rheumatism, each twinge  in any of my little infirmities, stares  mo questioning my old body, wondering whether this is the tinip.   .  "I would not like you to misunderstand me, dear friend, and to  construe these feelings into an undignified fear on my part. You  know nie well enough, I* hope, not  to deem me craven before the" ordeal which is soon coming. In all  sincerity I consider tliat I am old  enough, tliat 1 have suffered enough,  and I.wish' that God would now recall me. Yet tliis precarious hanging over the side of the bomb is not  gay. And when you, ray, best  friend, the only companion who is*  leffc to my heart toward tho linisli  of . my weai*y journey, speak of  abandoning mo my sadness' becomes extreme. Would! then have  =n ono=to^con v ei'so^o hfcoimno i r-^pas fc=  but the.ghosts of those who once  peopled my life? Ah! tho terrible  position of the man who survives  all those once'clear to him! Yesterday I received your letter toward evening, and it quite upset  mo. .I dismissed my attendants  and sat near the window from  which you and I gazed, upon the  moonlit park���how many years ago  I daro not recall���and from which  I can still seo the roof of the little  cottage, now shut and deserted,  where you used to dwell. I sat far  into the night, thinking with regret ol: years gone by, as impotent  old men must do. Regret? lie-  morse also���for who has done what  ho should?,  ''I thought: 'Now comes the time  when I shall have to account to  God for the power he has given me  pver millions of fellow-creatures,  aiid'could not the judgment of God  be, justly, very severe? For the  latter part of my life, at least, I  absolve myself of all selfish motives, haying done my best in the  intorest of my people. Yet all  sorts of doubts assail me. How  much I need your encouragement,  dear woman, at this hour! If those  men, women and children who  slept in towns aud countries for  leagu.es aud ��� leagues around could  have seen their old ruler last night  ���broken, alone, anxiously questioning his conscience���even the  most bitterly opposing of them  would have forgiven me for not  having been equal, perhaps, to my  mission toward them. They surely  would have pitied ine. Is there  any one living today who shall  depart life under more gloomy conditions than those under which I  myself am slowly taking leave of  Will Restore Bates.

I ascended the throne  iu the midst of a fratricidal, turmoil of races. I received successively right in my heart the three  stabs of ���= Magenta, Solferino and  Sadowa. Soon afterwardjT-was  taken by the scruff of the neck, so  to speak, by that freebooter Bismarck, and, howling, with rage; I  was compelled to sign the treaty of  Prague, that forever consecrated  the supremacy of Hohenzollern  over Hapsburg aud debarred oiir  house from the imperial crown of  Germany.  "I have   seen  my only  son, my  only heir, the supreme hope of my  empire,   kill   himself  and  scandal  foul his  death.   -J  have seen  my  wife murdered   and  die far away  without the possibility of a word of  affection   passing between  us.      I  have seen my  nephews  grow up-  each a sure disgrace and each a possible calamity to  the land  of his  birth.     A  week  ago  I  read  in a  French review a  very  able  article  forecasting the strife that  will immediately mark my demise.     According   to   the   writer,   only my  presence at the helm  still  succeeds  in  holding  the  radically different  and violently hostile  races��of  my  empire together.      When I  am  np  longer here disruption will immediately take plaee.amid a general and  inevitable    European    war.      God  forbid that  the  prediction  should  come true!    Yet it were useless to  deny the  possibility of even that.  And at any rate imagine if you can  what I must have,, felt during all  these years when this  subject has  been opeuly discussed  in every diplomatic; center in  the'world, and  ai tides like the one of the French  review have been ...published periodically by the  political experts  of  eyery country.  "My empireissaidtobecrnmbling;  in my private life and in my  mission as a monarch there is little  but disappointment and tragedy;  can you wonder that bitter despair  fills my old heart wheu I sit alone,  as I did last night, and iri the long,  silent hours rehearse these thoughts?  I do not know why I should have  added to your uneasiness by thus1  enlarging upon mine. All this, I  fear, will sound like tlie selfish  whining of an old man who wants  tobe pitied. Yet now that it is  written I shall send it, if only to  make your own lot seem more bearable by comparison. Dear friend,  do not forgot that I want to be informed about your health. As soon  agjyoiLget this write me that yon,  are better���that you are quite well.  Your auxious and very'devoted,  ^F.J."  Christian Scientists' Row.  Boston, May 2!).���The trial of  the libel suit of Mrs. Josephine A.  Woodbury of this city iigain.se Mrs.'  Mi>ry Baker G.Eddy oi' Concord,"  New Hampshire, the Christian  Scientist and founder of that sect,  was begun in the Suffolk County.  Superior Court here today, and  according to tho statement of' the  different counsels it is likely to consume the greater portion of three  weeks. The suit was brought by  Mrs. Woodbury on the ground that  two years ago Mrs. Eddy in a message to the First Christian Science  church here, which was read  four times and afterwards published iu a local paper, had in  mind Mrs. Woodbury when she  used the words "the doom of the  Babylonish women referred to iu  tho Book of Revelations is being  fulfilled." ��� Previous to this Mrs.  Woodbury had been excommunicated by the church. Mrs. Woodbury brought a suit against Mrs.  Eddy for $150,000. In her answer  Mrs. Eddy says the phrase was used  simply to describe a type of sin.  Mrs. Woodbury was present in  court today, being represented by  F. W. Peabody, but Mrs. Eddy  would not appear, her deposition  having been taken for introduction  in the case as evidence. The court  room was crowded with spectators  when the case was called, while  several Hundred men and women  clamored in vain for admission.  IMPERIAL BAM  OIF    a^JSTA-ZD-A.  HKAD  OFFICK.

Company  are moving their stock from the  Lardeau road.  The firemen are engaged in flushing the city water mains. This  process will improve the quality of  the water now being supplied to  consumers, as the mains were very  dirty.  Mayor Fletcher returned from a  trip to Boundary yesterday. He  says the Kettle river is very high,  and that the people in the lower  portic n of Grand Forks were preparing to move out.  The attention of the local health  officer has been called to the circumstance that one of the Chinese  wash houses on the water front,  near Stanley street, utilized the  liquid from the outlet of the city  sewer for the washing of clothes.  Ymir had another freshet on  Tuesday when the river took out  about 75 feet of the -bank, as well  as the house occupied by Mr. Taite,  who does the express business for  the Ymir mine. Taite got his  furniture out, but the building is a  total wreck. ���  The boys who like baseball as a  sport will meet in the Tremont hotel tonight and perfect an organization for this season. The game  fixed for an early date is between  the Nelson and the Trail clubs, and  not with the Northport club, as  The Tribune stated yesterday,  P. Lnfrance, who employs himself  in securing driftwood from the lake  aud turning it to commercial account, complained to the police  yesterday that the Chinese on the  flat were stealing his stock-in-trade.  When interviewed by the police  every Chinaman in the colony professed ignorance of even the existence of the driftwood.  Two of the three men who were  implicated in the contemplated  holdup in Greenwood are known to  the local police. Hogan, the cook,  was mixed up in a row in this city  and got out of town to avoid-  arrest. Glencross, the tinhorn, was  summoned in the police court-upon  a 'charge of gambling, and ��� also  ' skipped out, a bench warrant being  issued for his arrest.  A. B. Buckworth, deputy census  commissioner, was in Nelson yesterday. He says the work in his district is completed, but that he will  hold the schedules until some un-.  derstanding is arrived at with respect to the remuneration of the  enumerators. Upon the basis of  five cents a- name he considers that  the meu would be insufficiently  paid, their pay for some days at  this rate beiug less than 25 cents.  The fire, water and light committee had a meeting yesterday to consider the tenders for supplying the  city with 100 poles for the electrie  light system. Some -eight tenders  were received, but the issue was  between the tender of John Lynch,  at 7 cents per lineal foot at Mountain station, and the tender of G.  Bagley at 0 1-2 cents per foot in the  boom at Nelson plus 10 cents per  pole delivered on the beach. The  tenders figured out $3.64 and $3.48  per pole, but the Lynch tender was  accepted as the cheaper in view of  the cost of delivery over the city.  TALKING AGAINST CHINESE  REASONS WHY THEY SHOULD BE  EXCLUDED.  W. H. Bullock-Webster Considers Their  Presence a Menace to th<* Preservation of the Peace.  One Carried and One Defeated,  The voting on two money bylaws  at Rossland was very close. The  waterworks bylaw won by 116 to 73,  or just three votes more than the  three-fifths required. The sewer  bylaw lost by 80 to .108, or by 4  votes.   Retail Clerks Form a Union.  The clerks in the retail houses of  Nelson   organized   an    association  and applied for a charter from the  Retail Clerks' International Protective Association, whoso headquarters are at Denver, Colorado.  The officers elected last night are:  W. M. Irving, past president; M.  McSwoyn, president; II. Mills, first  vice-president; llv H. Bradley,  second vice-president; D. McNicholl,  corresponding secretary; G. TC. McLaughlin, financial secretary; H.  Bush, treasurer.  MINING   RECORDS.

Graham by  their power of attorney in fact -to  V. W. Keech sell to F. W. Block-  berger of Rossland a half interest  in the Tiger, Owl, No. 20 and  Mother Lode mineral claims on the  head of Copper creek on the north  fork of the Salmon.  The people of Nelson had an opportunity yesterday of seeing for  themselves how the members of the  Chinese and Japanese immigration  commission, do their business, and  of appreciating the far-reaching  nature of the competition which  Chinese, and for that matter Japanese, enter into with white men  aud women in almost every field of  manual or menial labor.    H  To begin with, the application of  the several members of the commission, their stenographer, the provincial counsel and his clerk, is in  itself a study. The proceedings  are opened by the secretary who,  as a rule, . reads the royal commission as a starter, but this  was dispensed with yesterday,  as there were only two or three  spectators present, and the active  participants had heard it read so  many times before that they knew-  it by rote. Then the witness is introduced, and being uncorked, the  three commissioners commence to  race down on foolscap an outline of  his testimony, the stenographer  pounds away' with, his pot hooks,  while the lawyer and his clerk set  down so much ��� of it as they consider important. This, rule . is observed almost as closely when the  witness is venturing an opinion  upon some abstract question iu  economics as' when he is reciting  what he actually knows.; and when  one considersthescopeof the inquiry  the w'onder is that the commission  should have approached so near the  end of its labors even after three  months' sitting.  ..None of this evidence.brought out  yesterday was sensational,, butit  showed,to'what extent the-'Chinese  have encroached in the field of do:  mestic labir,-in-the sawmill business, in the laundry business and  upon manual labor. As to the general trend ''of the evidence, it was  all against the Chinese, the Ja'pa-.  nese being - apparently, overlooked.;  There was; only one witness who  looked askance at -exclusion, but  even he upon cross-examination  said he would not be opposed to  exclusion except in . so. far as it  threatened to dislocate the domestic servant situation, and provided  the change was brought about  gradually he thought it would be a  good thing.  W. H. Bullock-Webster, of the  provincial police department, was  the first witness called. His evidence showed that he was not partial to Chinese, nor did he consider  them necessary to the province. He  did not consider their presence  necessary as a solution of the  domestic "servant problem, and as  for their vegetables, he did not consider them fit to go upon the table.  Asked as to whether the. presence  of Chinese injj^^ounU'ymightj3b^  "lead'to-disturbances of the peace,  the witness considered for a moment and then answered in the  affirmative, the little disturbance  at Phoenix being cited as an instance. The witness had a fund of  information on this point, but the  commissioners did not tap it. He  could have told them thafc^were it  not for timely interference a Chinaman would some years ago have  cut hi* life short at New Westminster, and that upon another  occasion at Fairview four other  Chinamen started at him with  knives by way of protest against  paying the provincial revenue tax.  But tlio commissioners wero content to take tlie opinion of the witness as tendered, and therefore  missed.tlie story.  II. E. Croasdaile was the second  wi tn ess. He was examined chiefly  upou the domestic servant phase of  the question, and was of the opinion that Chinese were necessary for  this service, but. in the end lie  thought something in the way of a  gradual exclusion would probably  be a good .thing. He was also of  the opinion that from a provincial  point of vi$w it was bebfcer to employ Chines'etlabor in manufacturing than to send money to the east  for goods made in cheaper labor  markets. Mr. Croasdaile said he  had spent about 21 years in the  province, and had he beeu any  longer here commissioners Foley  and. Munn would probably have  him qu; the witness stand yet, so  varied and complex-were .1 hie -questions which they fired at him,  Tlie manner in which the Chinese  competition affected the lauudiy  business was   made plain by  the  ssaassmmse^e:  TKLKPHONffi 27  HI.

Charles Hillyer testified  to the effect of such competition  upon sawmijling and factory work.  Charles J. Clay ton of the Carpenters'  Union explained the impossibility  of local factories meeting the competition of Chinese employing factories on the coast, even in filling  orders for finished building materials used, in Nelson; George Payne  gave his testimony on behalf of the  Laborers' Union, touching on what  laborers had to fear in^the future  rather than what they had suffered  so far; and chief Jarvis of the city  .police also told what he knew about  Chinese and their methods.  .
