What the Men Who Are Mining Are  Doing Around Nelson to Get  Action on Investments.  capitalized for ��1,000,000, in shares of  the value of ?1 each, and of the entire  stock authorized one-half will be put  ���into the treasury for development purposes. The company has '4500 acres of  coal lands in the Boundary district,  about four miles from Princeton, and  lying between the Similkameen and Tul-  ameen rivers.  John McKane, who has probably done  more than anyone else to encourage  the investment of capital in the'mines  of Koolonay, was in' Nelson yesterday  on his return from the Lavina group  in the Lardo, which is being developed  by the Lavma'-Butte Consolidated, a  company in which; Mr.-McKane is the  heaviest shareholder. . It was from the  top of Lavina mountain that John last  fall heard the call of the Conservative party for a man to lead the forlorn  hope in the race against Big Bill Galliher and Chris Foley, the labor loader.  McKane made a good race of it, and  supplied all the ginger of the campaign,  but he did not win out. Since then he  has been pushing development on'the  Lavina property and he now stands to  make a big winning. The Lavina is  . about eight miles from Argenta, and  Mr. McKane figures that he now has  $250,000 worth of ore in sight. The'  Lavina, vein is from five to six feet  wide, and up to the present about 170C  feet of work las been done upon it.  The paystreak in the vein is about a  foot wide, nml*'carries silver and lead  values wliich average ?100 to the ton,  as well as small gold values. A sample shipment was mado from the property some time ago, consisting of 10  tons, which after deducting exceptionally heavy transport charges,' as well  as treatment charges, netted the com-  pany ?53. In addition to Uns clean ore  the lodge carries large quantities ol  concentrating ore, which has not beer,  figured on by the company so far. Mi.  McKane contemplates shipping about  2000 tons of high grade ore this season,  which will make a record for the Lardo.  A small crew of ,mcn is employed on  the property, working three shifts.  .."Provincial .constable-..Wilsoh of. Ores-,  ton, who  was the first white man on  ' the scene of the gold discovery made by  "Whito'Louie, the Indian, on the mountain between Summit and Corn creeks,  ��� was in Nelson yesterday. lie was taken  to the spot by the Indian and made hie  locations" on what appeared to be a  ledge of discolored quartz, but so fai  has not boon able to, secure values from  the ledge equal to those secured from  tho iloat brought in by the Indian, al-  - though other float can be found from  whicli good assays can be secured. Mr.  Wilson says the new field is about six  miles distant from Creston in a straight  line, and is on a hill which has a total  elevation of about 3000 feet.above the  lake. The Indian's discovery was made  where :*. number of trees had beer,  blown over, the float being found ir.  the roots of the trees. This is 'at c  point about a quarter of a mile from tin-  top of the hill. An open,cut was rui  in at this point, and a two-foot ledge  was encountered and contained about  four inches of quartz. Several othei  locations were made further down the  hill, but as  the entire hillside is cov-  ~~ere"d~wit!r~a_lreuvy^w*aslr^ef'r=little=ef^  fective work has yet been accomplished.  The Indian's sole idea in reporting the  discovery was his hope that from tin  proceeds of his find he might secure  sufficient.to build a church, and if the  property turns out well he will have  his wish gratified.  Johiio Lynch, who has charge of the  development work outlined for the Referendum group this summer, was ii.  Nelson yesterday. He has a lot of machinery which he "is taking in to this  well known Forty-nine creek property,  and as soon as it is on the ground will  make a start upon the programme outlined bv the owners. H. T. Sleeper  is now engaged in packing tho machinery in to the property. It includes the  five-stamp mill which was formerly o:i  the O. K. property in the Rossland  camp, as well as a small cyaniding  plant, and an engine and boiler. The  main shaft on the Referendum is at  present full of water, and the first work  undertaken will be the fitting up of the  steam pump. Mr. Lynch expects to  have his pump working; inside of a  week. A contract has been let for considerable work on the Referendum vein,  and this will be got well under way  before the. stamp mill and cyaniding  plant is put up.   The people of Kaslo have renewed  hopes of the ultimate success of their  customs smelter scheme. W. J. Jeffrey, the- consulting engineer for tlie  local company that has the project in  hand, has recently received very favorable assurances from the Chicago peoplo  who contemplate the erection of the  smelter, and something in the way of. a  definite announcement may be expected  in the course of a few days. The Chicago people have an option upon th3  smelter project and if. was feared fori, a  time that they contemplated dropping  it, but the tenor of the communication  recently received by Mr. Jeffrey froAi  them puts an entirely different aspect  upon the whole question. \  The Similkameen Valley Coal Conv-  pany, Limited, expect to have their incorporation perfected within the next 30  days, when they will be in shape tp  commence the work of developing their  coal properties.    The company will lie  A Boer Stowaway.  NKW YORK, July 9.���One of the Boer  prisoners recently taken to Deri-ill's island, I'erni'ida, from South Africa was  a stowaway on the. steamer Trinidad,  which arrived here today. His name is  William S. Dupley. On Friday he escaped by throwing himself into the  water off- the island. Kb floated about  for hours, finally being' picked ap by  two Bermuda fishermen, who took Iiim  to Hamilton The authorities then- mado  a search for him, but-he eluded his pursuers and induced two stokers aboard  the Trinidad to stow him away in the  coal liiuikors. When the .Trinidad; arrived hen*, captain Fraser was notified  that an escaped prisoner was rbelieved  to be stowoo away in0the steamer. -The  captain instituted a search and found  Du ploy covered with coal dust and nearly dead from hunger. An examination  before the board of inquiry will be held.  The board may do one of two things  under the law. Dupley may be sent back  to Bermuda or he may be fined $10. It  is said that if the" latter course is pursued, Boer sympathizers in New York  will pay the fine that the man may be  set free. Dupley was detained at Ellis  islard as a pauper and not as a fugitive.  . NEW YORK, July 9���In the afternoon  Dupley was arraigned before the special  board of inquiry. The .young man admitted that he was a Boer soldier arid  that he had escaped from the British  military prison recently, established at  Bermuda. He said that he came to this  country prepared to earn'.his own living  and there was no chance of his becoming a public charge. His case was deferred until his friends can be heard  from. He was sent back to the detention  pen. Sir Henry Sanderson said that he  had not been officially notified of Dup-  Icy's escape.  FROM PROVINCIAL  POINTS  Quiet on the Fraser.  VANCOUVER, July 9.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The lack' of a run  large number of boats, being out, prevented any further trouble on .the "Fraser 'river ��� this morning. Tonight the'  ���'whitb'"-iniion:-fisli'erm'en~ha"V'e~-_,entirely'  "abandoned * the river for the time being, to 'hold mass meetings in Vancouver and AVestminster to consider the  situation. 'In the meantime a full Japanese fleet of 1500 boats is out, protected by a police steamer and 40 Japanese patrol boats. The latter are alarmed and are simply coasting around  the outskirts of the fleet to insure protection. A bis; kick was made to the  police this morning by th'e white fishermen for allowing the Japs to buy up  practically all the ammunition in Steves-  ton. Nearly all the Japs are discharged  soldiers. Last night, out on the gulf,  the Jap patrol boats outnumbered those  of the union, so that ,when one of the  latter appeared the Japs tacked on two  of their boats and simply followed the  white men around wherever they went.  Both.white.men and Japs are going out  in the niorniri's.  Ainsworth's Close Call.  AINSWORTH, July 9.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Ainsworth had another  jiam*ow=lescape=from=J*.ein.g=destroyed=  by fire today. Dr. Henry's store and  the postoffice caught fire about 1-o'clock  p. m. and was completely destroyed, as  well as a large building in the rear  which was used as a public hall and  offices. The latter was blown down Jjy  powder and the town was saved, but  by hard work on the part of the citizens.  The origin of the fire is a mystery.  Buffalo Hotel Rates.  BUFFALO, July 9.���A meeting of the  Buffalo Hotel Association'-was held this  afternoon to take action on the reports  which are said to have been spread  broadcast that the hotels of this city  were charging Pan-American visitors  extortionate rates. The Iroquois, New  Tifft, Genessoe, Cheltenham, Crandall,  O.istlo Inn, the Stafford, and the Mansion houso were represented. These retorts were emphatically denied. A  f.tatcment was prepared for the press  advising the traveling public-!bafc first-  class accommodation could be secured  iii any of the American plan hotels for  from $2 to ?4 per day according to location of room. The prevailing European plan rates ;>ro from $2 to $5 per  day for one person and from ?3 to $10  per day for two persons, according to  the class of accommodation. The maximum riites as above stated represent  the b"st ���'���(. accommodations to be had  in the city. The hotels have accommodations for all persons desiiing first  class entertainment during the Pan-  American exposition.  Lost at Sea.

Buchanan Wins His Appeal in  the SawLoff Case of West vs.  J    Buchanan, With Costs,  The judgment of the court in the celebrated case of Marino vs. George Alexander, Florence L. Mclnnis and Alexander Sproat has been framed 'and approved of by.Mr. Justice Irving. It orders that the plaintiff shall recover  .from the defendant Sproat the sum of  $500, with interest upon the said amount  from the 17th of December," 1898, at the  rate of 10 per cent; and for the recovery  of a like "amount from, the defendant  Florence L. Mclnnis. An amount of  ?22.50 is allowed on the counter claim  of Sproat. The court further decrees  that Sproat and Mclnnis were copartners  in operating the Marion mine from the  15th of October, 189S, and that the partnership continued until the third day of  August, 1900. An order_is also made for  the taking of an account by the registrar of the dealings and transactions  between the plaintiff and defendants as  copartners, to inquire into what the  said partnership assets consist of, and  in what manner and upon what terms  the same may be most beneficially realized. The court directs that in taking  the account the plaintiff shall be allowed his wages as foreman at the rate  of $5 per day. and that the defendant  submit such claims as he may have  for his work of managing the Marion.  she showed immensely improved form.  Outsailing the Shamrock I on every tack  she led the latter by a half mile off Little Cumbrae, five miles from the start.  The yachts beat out past Cumbrae in  long tacks, the Shamrock II still opening out until her: lead was increased  to nearly a mile. \ The wind softened  and the cup challenger squared away  and ran back to her opponent. Reaching  up the firth the yachts were both helplessly becalmed and. the trial was abandoned. The challenger's exhibition' of  sailing earlier in the day is taken to  indicate that the smoothing of her hull  and the slieht alterations made in her  trim have brought the Shamrock II to  her proper condition and showed her  true cualities. ..".'������'.  CLAIM OWNERS ARE BUSY  AT WORK TRYING TO MAKE PROMISING PROSPECTS SALABLE.  G. O. Buchanan was in Nelson yesterday shaking hands with himself over  the outcome of his appeal in the case  of West vs. Buchanan. This was an  action in which W. W. West sued Buchanan for the balance due upon a contract which Messrs. McFarland & Sher-  rand had for clearing a portion of a  timber limit. Instead of performing  their contract they cleared off only a-  portion of the logs and gave West an  order on Buchanan for the amount of  the contract price/1B,uchanan made pay-  ~merits'"'up'6n" the" contract" iip "to" "within"  ?200 of the entire amount and withheld  the balance pending the completion of  the contract. The case was tried before  Mr.' Justice,.Martin, who gave judgment  for the plaintiff, but the full court- has  seen fit to reverse this, with the result  that West has now an adverse judgment  against himself with the costs of the  trial and the appeal, which will amount  to more than the amount originally in  dispute.  It is said that an appeal will be taken  in the case of Vice and Williams vs.  Brydges. This was an action to recover the,sum of $100 from the defendant, which represented a portion of the  first payment upon some Nelson property, the sale of which was never completed by reason of some misrepresentations made as to the mortgaged encumbrance against the property. The case  was tried before judge Forin, who gave  judgment for the plaintiffs. A claim  which was made for damages by reason  of the misrepresentations was not entertained.  China Wants Indemnity.  WASHINGTON, July 9.���The Chinese  government, through minister Wu, has  filed a claim for indemnity to the amount  of half a million dollars on account of  the alleged treatment of Chinese at  Butte, Montana. There is a-suggestion  of Boxer outrages reversed in the presentation of'jhe case&to the state department, the\ti*eatm'ent infliced upon  the Chinese at Butte being claimed to  have been cruel and oppressive. It is  charged that some of them were killed,  others lost their property andr nearly  all were ruined in business and many  of them were driven out. The claimants  number several hundred.  Want the Mayors,  BUFFALO. July 9.���Director-general  Buchanan of the Pan-American exposition has invited the mayors of three  thousand cities of Canada and the  United States to visit the exhibition on  municipal day, August 26th. Invitations  have also been extended to the inten-  dente of the City of Mexico and it is  hoped these officials will be present.  Some of the South and Central American cities will be represented.  Crazy Man Runs Amuck.  DENVER, July 9.���Mrs. Amelia A.  Bullis, 60 years of age, was stabbed to  death last night on a highway in the  outskirts of the city. Jessie Kinport,  aged 1'4, was assaulted and terribly mutilated with a knife at her home while  her mother was absent and may die.  Carl Jensen, alias Johnson, aged 25, who  is in custody, has confessed both crimes.  He is believed to be insane.  Challenger Again Victorious.  ROTHESAY, July 9.���In the first five  miles of the racing trial between the  Shamrocks this morning, both yachts  were apparently sailing for all they were  worth and the challenger beat Shamrock I quite half a. mile. The boats  started to windward with a steady,  gradually strengthening breeze, about  sufficient to cover the America cup  course. The challenger had just come  out of dock and her hull was clean and  Spanish Rioters.  ",, SEVILLE, Spain, July 9.^-There was  a serious conflict in a street here today  between workmen and gendarmes. Owing to the^'refusal of groups of the forin er to disperse, the gendarmes arrested  a workman. The latter's comrades  thereupon dug up cobble stones and  threw them at the police, injuring five  of them. The gendarmes charged, shots  were exchanged and several persons  were hit. Women actively participated  in the disturbance. The prefect, who  intervened, was stoned. Finally a force  of cavalry dispersed the rioters.  Will Leave France.  ROME, July 9.���The Vatican has received official information that in consequence of the enactment by the French  parliament of the- law of associations-  bill, many congregations-in France will  transfer their headnuarters to Brussels  or other Belgian cities and that millions  of francs have already been withdrawn  from the Bank of France. It is said that  the pope is watching the exodus with  anxiety.  Wiil Not Combine.  LONDON, July 10.���Contrary to the  opinion expressed in Vienna, says a Berlin dispatch to the Daily Express, it is  held that there is no possibility of a  general European trade combination  against the United States, Germany's"  ���relations with the United States being  too extensive to permit her to assume  ,an attitude of hostility.  AN UNPLEASANT INCIDENT  IN   CONNECTION _ WITH   RECENT  HENLEY REGATTA.  Loose Remark hy One of the Pennsyl-  .vanias Angers the Leanders.  May Bar Foreign Crews.  LONDON, July 9.���Both the Americans . and British have been congratulating themselves on the fact that the  Henley regatta passed off without international friction of any kind.: The  congratulations were premature. Friday night the Leanders gave a dinner  to the Pennsylvanians. All the prominent rowing authorities were present.  The speeches teemed with compliments.  The/British said that they had nevu*  met a better or more sportsmanlike  crew. The Pennsylvanians replied that  ~th~ej^hTTd_lie"ver���bean, more-fairly and"  S'.uiarely b'aten. The only explanation  was that the LeandiT .we tlie better  crew. The speeches were all of this  tenor, till one of the American crew  said he wiohi'd to say that their treatment at Henley was splendid. Thoy hud  found all the arrangements in regard  to tha races perfectly fair, "contrary  to what they had been told." The British oarsmei wvns dutnfonnded and did  not answer while the Pcnnslyvanian'*  were there. The. storm broke out immediately after they had departed and still  continues.' Tlie Leanders are bitterlv  indignant and say they will not row  against them again.    ���  LONDON, July 9.���The.head master  of Kton writes to the Times today advocating the exclusion of all foreign  crews from Henley. "If the result of  Friday's race had been different," writes  Dr. Warre, "whatever wo might have  thought we could not have uttered our  thoughts without inviting the disagreeable retort that we did not know how  to take a beating. As it is, wc may  speak, and it being so I wish to avoid  any' imputation of churlishness or discourtesy. I have nothing but admiration for our American brethren who at  the cost of infinite pains, months of  preparation and great expenditure have  come to partake in our regatta. Th'e  good nature of the stewards of the Henley regatta in permitting tho rowing  trophies entrusted to them to be contended for by all tho world will endanger the best interests of amateur  rowing, for tho encouragement of which  they were originally presented. I do not  wish foreigners excluded out. of any  selfish fear lost the prizes go io foreign  lands, f'ji* 1 feci convinced we are good  enough to hold our own. But J most certainly desire that our amateur oars-  menship may be preserved from the  deadly inroad of professionalism which  is already making a business of so much  that ought only to be pleasure and  threatens to crush the life out of sport  in England. If an international regatta  is thought to be desirable there will be  no difficulty in providing suitable trophies and a proper course. By all means  let us preserve our Henley, which was  founded for the encouragement of ama-  etur rowing in the United Kingdom  from the professionalism which seems  now to menace its raison d'etre."  The Mountain to the East of Pilot  Bay the "Center of Active  Operations This Summer.  caused the wreck is not definitely known  but it is thought a portion of a freight  train that was broken in two had rolled  on to the passenger tracks. No passengers were killed. The dead are:  Frank Anderson, engineer of the passenger train of Buffalo, and O. G. Mc-  Cullen of Cincinnati, mail clerk. The  injured are: William Elliott, Buffalo,  fireman of the passenger train; will  probably die; W. M. Baker of Columbus, mail clerk, injured on head and  body; E.,F. Loveless. Cincinnati, mail  clerk, slight injuries, and an unknown  tramp, badly hurt.  THE DIFFERENT  STRIKERS  TBACKNEN  SEEM  TO BE  DAILY  LOSING GROUND,  PILOT BAY, July 8.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���The present season promises to be a record-breaker in mineral  development so far as this section of  the country is concerned. Two more  strikes are reported today; both in the  Canyon creek camp. William Hazzard,  who began his season's work by stripping the 20-foot ledge on the Daisy,  has brought in samples of copper pyrites  in quartz which in appearance are ahead  nel on the edge, and claims to have ore  some time. Hazzard has started a tunnel on the ledge, nd claims to have ore  all through the face. He intends to  open up the ledge as rapidly as possible.  George Matthews, who has been prospecting his claims at the 'mouth of Canyon creek, has discovered a fine ledge  three feet in width, carrying a high  grade of galena throughout, and expects to prove the property a mine, as  he has uncovered the ledge in.two prospect tunnels and finds it consistent in  width throughout.  Ii. L. Workman and Mike Johnson,  former owners of the Silver Hill, have  another nice property nearly ready for  the market in the Grand Prize group  on Rose pass. Here they have traced  a four-foot ledge for over 1500 feet on  the surface, and have 18 inches of clean  galena in sight. No depth has been  gained on this vein as yet, hut the owners are now at work on the showing  and expect to have it pretty well ex-  plored. before the end of the season.  The Grand Prize group lies over the  summit from the Humboldt, and is  thought to possess the same lead. There  are several other very meritorious showings of galena in the vicinity of Rose  Pass.  - After doing considerable surface work'  on the Lakeshore, a claim half a mile  from town on which there is a showing  ���of- copper, Joe Ruderfidorf and J. P.'  ' Schmlick"-have, taken afiSmtfit'to Whisky'creek, where they wilPwork for the  balance of the season on the Elkhart,-  Ontario and Hamilton. These --claims,  the owners say, have a surface showing  150 feet in width with considerable ore  which assays ?9 to ?16 in gold and copper.  ��� Prospectors and ranchers along the  lake are complaining of the depredations committed by the siwashes. The  aborigines, who have always been a  source of trouble to' owners of movable property, are evidently encouraged  by their long immunity from punishment and are growing bolder in their  work. Several Indians who were caught  literally red-handed: in the act of picking strawberries on a ranch owned by  a Swede near Sanca, not only refused  to desist, but at the point of a revolver  forced the Scandinavian who challenged  their right to his fruit, to vacate the  ranch while they calmly stripped his  vines.

Steel Workers in the Coming Conference Likely to Effect a Satis-  factory Compromise.    .  EASTERN CANADIAN NEWS  Canadian Cricketers  JSTEWLYORK,  July 9.���The Canadian  cricketers Wound up their trip today at  Bayonne, N. J., by defeating 11 representatives of the Metropolitan District  Cricket League by au innings and 122  runs. When the first day's play was  ended last evening the visitors had made  147 runs for the loss of one wicket,  while the Metropolitan players had only  made 97 in their first innings. On the  resumption "of play today the Canadians  continued their first innings and Laing  and Henry made a splendid stand  against bowlers that were frequenly  changed, until the score passed the 200  mark. Laing made 103 before he waa  clean bowled by'Tyes. This was the only  occasion during the trip of the Canadians that any of tho-number had made  "century." William Henry of Halifax  had put together a careful 41 before he  put leg "before wicket on Worm's bowling. The entire side was not disposed  of until the total reached 266. After  luncheon the home players went in to  try and save defeat by an innings, but  they were unable to do so. owing to the  splendid bowling of McGiverin and  Rookc. Jack Adam who. by the way, is  the best all-round cricketer on the Metropolitan eleven, was tbe only one to  reach double figures, as he made 21  runs. Fifttcn of these were made off  Rooke in one inning, a six, a four, two  twos and a single. The wickets foil  very cheaply. Four of the players were  stumped by Wright, three off McGiverin  and one off Rooke. In all McGiverin took  six wickets for 18 runs and Rooke's  four wickets for 35 runs. The bowling  and fielding of the visitors was very  much superior to the local men and  the result was a foregone conclusion  early in the game.  A Bad Wreck.  CLEVELAND, July 9.���A special to  the Leader from Nottingham, Ohio, says:  "One of the worst wrecks on the Lake  Shore railway in years occurred at 2:30  o'clock this morning, in the center of  this village, 10 miles east of Cleveland.  The Southwestern Limited on the Big  Four, from St. Louis, Cincinnati and  other western cities, and which goes on  to the Lr.ke Shore tracks at Cleveland,  was ditched through collision with a  portion of a freight train.

The side of his head was completely  stove in, where he hit tho iron work  of the  bridge when falling.  LANCASTER. Ont., July 9.���-An attempt was made Saturday night to burn  the residence of Mrs. Cooper of South  Lancaster. The building was saturated  with coal oil, and set on fire. Mrs.  Cooper and husband live apart and are  bad friends. The husband is suspected  and was arrested today and,committed  for trial at the Cornwall assizes.  BROCKVILLE, Ont., July 9���Speaking at a bnquet tendered by the Forty-  first regiment on Saturday evening colonel Otter defied any person to say that  he .had ever acted in a harsh or arbi-  -trar-y=manner-=while=commanding=the-  First Canadian contingent in South Africa. He said a portion of the press  had attacked him, but he said he would  never reply to them; that there was  one place at headquarters where all  complaints can be heard and all wrongs  righted and only there would he make  reply.  TORONTO. July 9.���A few days ago  George Pierce, one of the evangelists  connected with the Twentieth Century  gospel tent, on Parliament street, was  arrested, charired with kicking out the  front teeth of David >. ..ite during a  row. When searched at the police station letters of a questionable nature  were found on him, inviting young girls  who had been in attendance at the  camp to take trips with him. He was  sent to jail for 60 days on the assault  charge. His career as an evangelist is  ended.  The Filipino Wife.  The Filipinos are much as the Spaniards have made them. The upper  classes' adhere closely to Spanish custom, so, barring certain foolish restrictions, and too much "duenna." the women are treated with the utmost respect  and consideration. Among the lower  class natives conditions, are more interesting. Long contact with the Spaniard  has ��� removed whatever prejudice concerning women there might have been  in the Malay breast���for among his race  in general she is looked upon as decidedly inferior���and now we are able  to observe very amicable family arrangements in which the woman is the partner of her husband, and apparently regarded as of equal importance, though  no particular deference is paid to her.  In this marital partnership the wife  is often the active member, displaying  great energy, especially in goading her  indolent snouse to effort. Sometime:*  one of these little women supports the  whole household. Generally speaking,  she is the more ambitious of the two,  and if she does not actually perform  all the labor of support, the fortunes  of the family may be dependent on her  wit and enterprise.' It is not at all uncommon for a Filipino wife to apply  to an American officer in charge of a  department for a job for her husband.  TORONTO,   July   9.���D.

That  is  evidence that the local .com- " (  mittee are not being truthfully posted. ��,  MONTREAL,  July 9.���Mr.   McNicoll, - "  when seen tonight about the item which    ������  appears in an evening paper' to the ef- ^  feet that both parties desired a coinpro-     -  mise,  and  that   negotiations   towards *  that end   were  in progress,  said: -  "I '.'<i  know of no such 'negotiations.

Association, who is secretary of the  Ohio state board of arbitration, arrived  today and went at once to the amalgamated headquarters. Asked if the  board would join in the effort to settle  the strike, he said: ' "While a large,  number of the sheet mills are in the  state of Ohio, this strike is a national  affair and does not exactly come under  our jurisdiction. I am here to inquire  into the situation, and if our board can  be of any assistance in adjusting the  difficulty we will give our services. I  do not care to^ express an opinion of  the-'strike;'*'PresidenrS6EaffeT^rdlarfeir"  that the conference on Thursday must  be final, and nothing short of a complete surrender would be accented.  Pi'i ��oi-iURG, July 9.���A more hopeful atmosphere pervaded the headquarters of both the steel combine and the  Amalgamated Association today as the  result of the preliminary conference between president Schaffer of the Amalgamated Association and Warner Arms,  representing the combines interested'  last evening. The Wellsville trouble,  which yesterday threatened, to undo  what had been done towards effecting  a speedy settlement of the strike, was  not referred to today and everything  pointed to an amicable adjustment of  all differences.  Rochester Laborers.  ROCHESTER, July 9.���By the arrival  here early this morning of CO laborers  from New York city, Imported by the  contractors to take the place of the  striking street laborers, a crisis seems  to have been reached in the labor strike  inaugurated last week. The contractors  say they will resume operations today  if it is in their power, assisted by the  police, to do so. On the other hand the  leaders of the strikers are equally determined to hold up work on the many;  contracts.  Minister White Hears the News.  SYRACUSE, July 9.���A cablegram waa  received from ambassador White this  afternoon acknowledging receipt of dispatches announcing the death of. his  son, F. D. White, in this city yesterday.  The cablegram contained nothing to indicate the intention of ambassador  White to resign, and his family here  deny that they have ever received any  suggestion from him to the effect that  he intended to retire from the diplomatic service. Mrs. F. D. White received  hundreds of telegrams from all over  tlie United States expressing sympathy  and condolence.

It is claimed that the  '-British Columbia system not only works-  a hardship on the mine owners, but tends  'to drive capital from the country..   The  '' Tribune claims that there is little- difference-between the Montana and Brit-  ash Columbia tax rates; so little as to bo  hardly apparent.    The  Payne  mine  in  "  tho   Slocan   is  rated   as   a  good .property.    According to the last statement  .made to its shareholders it has asscto  of the value of $2,757,015.

The  Montana rate of taxation,  3 per  cent,  would have given the province $10,035.50.  The cost of freight and treatment, oh the  ore  shipped   by  the  Payne  was   f209J- -  '   225.05, which  deducted from  the value,  of the ore, leaves $507,831.02, on which l  the province collects 2 per cent.  .The1-  ,2 per cent on the $507,S31.02 amounts tor  '$10,15CG2,   or   just   $121.0C   more "than!'  jwould  have been paid  had  the Payne!  mine been located  in Montana instead  of.in British Columbia.

Responsibility for  the disasters which ' had occurred, tho  duke said, could not be attributed to the  Conservatives, but must be credited to  the Liberals. The Conservatives had not  permitted.the intervention of the United  States'in the question of Cuba, and they  had refused several times to sell the  United' States the island. If the Conservatives had remained in power the war  ���with the United States would not have  broken out. Among the errors of tho  Liberal party, continued the duke, must  figure the recall of Weyler at a very difficult moment.

It has contained column after column of double-leaded- editorials denouncing.the government and,  agitating for a ��� repeal of the different.  ' laws relating to mining..- No member of  the government,' and no member of the  ^legislature, except Smith-CurtilTof "Ross7  land and W. D.

Now, after months of the  most rabid agitating, the Miner lias the  Sail to read the miners' union of Ross-  kind *'. double-leaded lecture on the  evils of "agitating." All disinterested  observers will agree with The Tribune,  that the agitators who are damaging  the country are' not' members of tho  Rossland Miners' Union, but, instead,  are. the three Inch managing the Le Roi  ���and War-Eagle mines and the Rossland  Miner.-j rThe two-former are the agita-  tors-in^chlef;" the latter is merely their  puppet' '..'"' ''"''    While the "blue-ruin" press, is shouting itself hoarse, hundreds of' men are  rjuietly, at work.trying to make mines  .out rof prospects.

Nothing succeeds like  success. In order to attract capital to  British Columbia, it must'be shown that  there is something in the province that  will pay good returns for the capital  invested.

Bring About tho Wanted Change  The following letter to the editor  the Rossland Miner Is printed in  lmper without a. word of comment,  reasoning  is  so  at  variance  of  that  Its  with, the  rantings on the editorial page of that  paper, it is a wonder that it was printed  at all. The writer of the letter was at  one time, if lie is not now, connected  with' the largest mining company operating at Rossland. The letter is reprinted in The Tribune-because it contains much that is good common sense:  ROSSLAND, July S.���During the last  few weeks.several letters have appeared  in the press of the'province, criticizing  our mining laws and in some instances  making comparisons as to certain details with the laws of Australia, Montana, etc., apparently much to the disadvantage of British Columbia.  Ono of the great bones, of contention  is the eight-hour law. I admit that it  is a very great mistake, as a rule, for  legislatures to interfere between employer and  employed.  I believe that any fair-minded man  will admit, that cases without number  occur where both parties would be benefited were they in a position to arrange  such matters for themselves. The law  is on the statute book, however, it has  been worked and recognized for two  years, and I am bound to say that insofar as the act itself is concerned, is  not now prejudicing the -introduction  of foreign capital.  Again, while I delineate all such  legislation, time has convinced me that  in tliis instance our political schemers  blundered into a good act. I mean by  this . that the question would - have  arisen���in the case of large properties  at all events���sooner or later. The result would have been the same, only  at great expense and loss to all concerned, including the province.  -With respect to taxes, on output I  think it most unfortunate that the industry is hampered by taxation of any  kind, that eventually it would be fat-  better for the province to get along without '.this revenue and for our worthy  representatives to lend themselves to  acts encouraging the future development of the mining districts rather than  in racking their brains for schemes to  suppress it.  I presume the answer of this will be:  ''We need the revenue and must have  it, we cannot reach an equilibrium between 'Revenue and Expenditure' without the proceeds from this tax." To  this I would reply: If you cannot af-  ��� ford to have deficits���not bad things  for young and growing provinces in a  temporary way���then reduce your expenditure, and in this connection bear  in mind that "There are more ways  than one of skinning cats, but none  if yon don't try."  If, however, the tax must be paid, is  it not possible to And a better way of  levying it���one that will bear more  equitably? Tax, say, the net returns.  I believe _it_ would be quite possible to_  ���aifiencTTIlfe- liiwlir this-respect- to^the-  advantage of both the industry and the  province. I am not prepared to make  comparisons, as to taxation, between  the laws of this province and the states  of Montana, Colorado and Idaho,, being  without copies of their several mining  acts and knowledge of just how thoy are  applied. It might, however, be desirable for a committee of Mr. Dunsmuir's  government to visit the states adjoining us and study tho workings of their  laws in this respect. It is quite possible that out of the wider experience of  these states, laws "have been enacted  which, making duo allowance for local  conditions here, could ��� ho applied to  advantage, Tho foes for registration  of companies aro much too high; these  should, be cut down noxt session.  ' In re holding claims, about which a  great deal has been said in abuse of  our system, 1 am of the opinion that  tho British Columbia belt is too long  and too wide, for us to cavil about the  number of claims any one prospector  may hold. Rather let us have more  prospectors. I don't believe for one  moment that the Australian laws in  this respect could be advantageously  applied in this 'country, but am strongly of the opinion that. the very contrary would result. The time may  come when the conditions governing  ownership of a mineral claim can perhaps be amended to advantage, but it  is not lret.  Improvements in our mining laws can  be made without doubt, but if a move  in thi.-* direction .should unfortunately  result in many and continuous changes,  I pray Heaven they will be let alone.  Bad and prejudicial as our laws are  said to be, they have not to my mind  one tithe of the effect on foreign capital that has the glorious uncertainty  as to what legislation may be passed  next. In other words, given an absolute guarantee tliat the mineral act  will remain practically undisturbed for  a period of years and criticism of our  mining laws will soon be a thing of the  past.  . The correspondence hitherto published in criticism of our mining laws, and  quoting them as a reason why capital  is withheld from British Columbia does  not appeal to me as being sound, and I  have   always   been   inclined   to   think  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed ou deposits.    Present rate  threo per cent.  GRANGE V. HOLT,  JManapfor Nolson Branoh.  that our critics, through ignorance or  intent, have avoided the issue. We who  live here and know the facts are perfectly aware that capital can be profitably invested in our mines, notwithstanding the existing laws, and that, I take  it, is what. capital requires���is what  capital demands. '  The investment of capital does not  depend on the laws of the country as  they affect" a certain industry, but it  does depend on that certain industry  proving sufficiently profitable notwithstanding all the conditions. As well  might we argue that capital should not  have gone into the*Rand mines. Is any  one prepared to quote the laws and conditions that existed in South Africa  as an example for British Columbians?  And yet English and foreign capital  poured into that country by the million pounds. Why? Was it because bf  its very favorable laws?  Capital is sensitive. Treat capital  fairly, pour regular dividends into the  pockets of the investors and there will  be no occasion to waste so much energy  in advertising our bad mining laws.  In conclusion, I am strongly of the  opinion that the press throughout the  mining sections of British Columbia is  making a mistake in not giving more  attention to the advantages of the province as a fleld for investment instead-  of devoting so much space to holding  up our legislators and laws to, public  ridicule.

Robitaille, who is charged with the theft  of the landing floats of the tramway  company which got adrift in the lake,  occupied the whole of stipendiary magistrate Crease's, time yesterday and was  not completed when the court rose, the  case being adjourned until Friday. It  is not likely that the crown will be  able to secure a conviction in this case,  as the accused bids fair to establish at  "least" a coloi*-ofTighTt-t^tff-TTloats-in"  question,  John Lindblad and William Waldie  will -leave this morning on a three  weeks' prospecting trip. Before their  return they will take in that section'of  country at the headwaters of Summit  creek, in the Goat River district, in the  hope of coming upon the quartz ledges  which have occasioned so much comment in the vicinity of Creston. They  intend to go in over the divide between  the Kootenay and Salmon rivers. They  have more faith in prospecting from,  the summit than in following the float  up the slope of the hill.  ������-Mr. and Mrs. A. H.

The Tribune wishes  him every success wherever he may locate; but expects to see him back in Nelson before a year has rolled by.

That the men who bought land from  the Kaslo & Slocan Railway Company  in the vicinity of Creston made no mistake is being evidenced how-almost daily  in the fancy 'prices which intending  settlers: are now offering for it. ��� Perhaps7 the highest pric-> > ��c paid for any  land in the bottom was that secured by-  Dick. Beaver for his 40 acre patch.  Nothing in the way of improvements  have been-made to this land, but Beaver  recently made a cash sale of the 40  acres for $1000:; ��� He bought. the land  from the railway" company for $7.50 an  acre one year ago: Fred Little also received an offer of $2500 for 20'acres of  land which-hei'has partially .improved,  and upon which ;he has about 150 young  bearing fruit trees. The offer.was declined.  This section-is going to he the garden spot of Kootenay, apples and fruit  doing .remarkably well. ������ There are ,at  present about 50 settlers, in the neighborhood, but as yet very little has been  accomplished in the way of raising market stuff, but all that is raised finds a  ready market at Cranbrook, Fernie and  other points along the Crow's Nest.  Fred Little has so far accomplished  the most in the way of improvements,  and stands to* do very well Wiui. his  fruit crop this summer. Bill Hushcroft  has 25 acres of his land in clover, which  he will use for.his stock, of which he  has now some 30 or 40 head, v  An idea of/-the growth in population  of this district may be gained from the  fact that t the recent school election  there were some 35 votes est. The trustees elected were. J. Wilson. Ed Mallar-  daine and William Crawford.  Benefits of Advertising.  "Wanted���A young French woman to  give lessons to an American gentleman.  Apply Hotel  , 10 o'clock Friday."  The foregoing advertisement, printed,  in a Paris paper, almost caused a riot at  the hotel at .the hour named. The  American gentleman was Webster  Jones of San Francisco. Mr. Jones left  orders that he would receive applicants  in a room at the hotel, and they might  be admitted to the corridor pending  his arrival. When he got there he  found a line that reached out into the  street and extended all the way to the  Place Vendome. Five hundred dashing  Parisian ladies were clamoring for a  sight of the "American gentleman."  They were unanimously resolved to give  him lessons.  Jones was paralyzed at the sight and  fled, leaving the hotel people to get  out of the scrape as best they might.  The managers and clerks argued in  vain. The ladies would not be pacified.  They clamored for a sight of the  evasive American. The police were  called. The women were put out. but  more women kept coming all day. The  hotel was under police protection for  24 hours. Jones fled to another hotel,  a wiser, and, perhaps, a better man.  He is now convinced that people read  advertisements, but he has retired from  the business.���Paris  Messenger.  Marvelous Railway Speed.  Now that parliament has consented  to a franchise for the Behr mono-railroad, to be worked by electricity, between Manchester and Liverpool, the  world will have an opportunity of seeing  what can be done in fast speeds. There  is a short overhead one-rail road in Germany, which is operated with some success, but the English project calls-for  speeds ranging from 100 to 150 miles an  hour. This looks fast for the mother  country. Yet it will not do to say that  150 miles an hour is impracticable.  Reputable engineers testified before a  committee of parliament in favor of the  scheme. We are now familiar with  speeds of 60 and 80 miles "an hour,  though 30 miles was formerly deemed  impracticable. An unobstructed overhead train has a fairer chance to realize  high speeds than has a heavy surface  train.  TELEPHONE 27  EL    ^"STIEIR-S   <fe   OO.
