C, MONDAY, AUGUST 5, 1901  FIVE CENTS  NELSON AT LAST A WINNER  VICTORY PERCHES ON HER BANNER IN A CRICKET GAME.  The   Hoodo   Lifted   and   a   Rossland  Team Easily Vanquished in an  Interesting Game.  'the cricket match on Saturday between the Rossland and Nelson elevens  resulted in an easy victory for the Nelson team, and as it is about the only  victory which has come~*to Nelson in  the sporting world this season, it is  doubly welcome. The game was wit-  nessed by a good company of-spectators,  ' and it is only fair to presume that if  the local cricketers would show themselves a little oftener a nearer approach  to general interest 'would be taken in  tlio game and the matches of the team  would in a measure be followed by the  people of the city as events in which the  [/ city and not the club merely had an  interest. .  The Nelson team won the toss and  elected to bat, Sargeaunt and Booth  being sent in to face the bowling of  Hodges and ' Sykes. Sargeaunt Avas  quickly disposed of for three and Avas  followed by Stocks. The latter had a  short life, being retired by a brilliant  catch by Seatle after he had contributed two runs. AVilson then joined  Booth, but the latter was retired 'a, few.  minutes after by a very fine-ball from  Hodges.' "Atkinson, who. came after  Booth, was quickly retired and the score  ���stood 4wickets for 45 runs, of Avhich  20. had been contributed* by Wilson by  clean, driving. Hay followed Atkinson  and was bowled on the first ball, making room for Forbes, v Forbes and Wilson then made rtuite a .-stand, and car-.  \-Tried the score to ,04, when .'-.Wilson %vas  caus*j*t and bOAvled by Hodges for a  Avell-played 33. Wilson's score included  one hit to the mattress factory and three  fours right to the fence. Elliot then  came in; but was apparently never at  home, being . retired for three runs.  Forde then joined Forbes, but the latter was retired a few minutes later on a  miss hit. AVetmore then came in only  'to be bowled on the first ball., He vwas  'followed by 'Criddle,' 'the last.'Nelson  man,' who, after a, few valiant'hits, was  boAvled by a full pitch. This closed the  Nelson innings Avith a score of-'80,. and-  _ outside of Wilson's score, Avho was the  only man to get into double figures, and  "Forbes, who played very good cricket,  the batting called for. no .comment:  Hodges' bowling was very good throughout the .innings, taking seven Avickets  for 24 runs. ..-������  .  The Rossland men went in for their  innings after lunch Avith Forbes and  Wilson doing the- bowling for Nelson.  From the start it was evident that the  Nelson trundlers had the Rossland men  at their mercy, as they Avere both Avell  'on the Wicket, and only 19 runs were  scored throughout the. innings, of, Avhich  .1.3 were from the bat. Forbes took four  ���wickets for ��� six runs and AVilson five  -wickets for seven. They.-Avere only re-  ���quired to bowl 13 overs, of Avhich six  Avere maidens.  Nelson opened .its second innings Avith  Forbes and Atkinson facing the bowl-  Hng=of==Hodges=and=Mori-ish=r=It==w"as"  soon seen that Hodges was tired from  his previous exertions and the first two  Nelson men carried the score to 15 bofore Atkinson was caught. Stocks who  followed, was soon retired by a well-  thrown ball by Seatle after he had contributed three to the score. Sargeaunt  then went in and was bowled by the  Jtii-st ball. Booth then joined Forde, but  the latter soon gave place to Wilson.  Booth retired shortly after for a well-  played nine, the score then standing  32 for 5 wickets. Forbes then came in  and he and Wilson carried the score to  ,58, when the former was bowled by  Morrish in attempting to slog. AVetmore,  who followed Forbes, was bowled on the  I-first ball, making a brace, and leaving  ihe score 5S for 7 wickets. Criddle  -then joined AVilson and slogged at every  7j-all that offered getting 10 runs before  lie- was bowled by Morrish. Elliot ro-  f placed Criddle and then Avas seen some  (magnificent 'free   hitting   on   AVilson's  part,   and   he   and   Elliott  carried   the  ,score from 78 to 185 before they Avere  jparted by Wilson being caught at. the  cover, Elliot being not out for 20.   AVil-  [son's performance at the bat in this innings' was a very good display of hit-  jting, his "on drives" being remarkably  ine.   His score included four hits over  the fence and 15 "fours." He Avas missed  rjfour times,  but this  does  not detract  jfrom   the   merit   of   his   performance,  ���which was certainly the best ever seen  In Nelson.   During this innings Morrish  IjoAvled verw well.   He took eight Avick-  |*ts for 102 runs during the two innings.  When the Rossland men Avent in for  their second innings they had to face  li score of- 246  to  19.    Mackenzie  and  |Iodge�� Avere sent in to open the hillings.    The former  was  foolishly  run  Jjmt and g-iye way to Seatle.   This cou-  fde made quite a stand and carried the  icore to 33 before the partnership Avas  Ifrissolved   by   Seatle   being   bowled   by  Forbes for a well-played nine. Rolt followed    Seatle   and   another   Rossland  picket  fell  for  one run.    Gordon  fol-  rJ-Wed Rolt and he and Hodges carried  ! he score to 45, when Gordon was bowled  by Wetmore,  bringing in Renwick.  (lodges continued to hit freely and he  ,nd'Penwick had lifted the scores to 59.  ,/hen' the latter was run out through  ver eagerness.   Morrish then came in,  nly to be retired in the next over, mak  ing room for Sykes. Rossland then lost  Hodges, Avho Avas put out on the catch  of the day, which aviis made by Elliot,  w'ho surpassed his feat of last season.  This sealed the Rossland men's fate, as  the innings closed Avith an addition of  but four runs, leaving the Nelson team  ahead 170 runs on the two innings.  NELSON���FIRST INNINGS.  Booth  b.

Of the visitors Hodges displayed his aeknoAvledged ability as a  batsman as weir as a boAvler. Rolt Avas  very unfortunate in that he was retired for a single, as he is regarded as  a very dangerous man and a hard hitter, and Avhen set very difficult to get  rid of. W. Seatle, Avho played Avith the  Rossland eleven, proved himself a very  able substitute. In fact, the Rossland  men are prepared to concede that they  are uniformly fortunate in their Nelson  substitutes.  Of the Nelson team it may be said that  their fielding Avas very fair, and the  three Nelson trundlers bowled to great  advantage, AVetmore's 5 Avickets for 35  runs being particularly welcome in the  second innings. J. Laing Stocks surprised everyone as a Avicket keep, al-  ^oughJie^hims.ellL^declar.es^that^he^is^  sir EdAvard Grey was rewarded for the  courage of his convictions by flouts  and insults from the irreconcilables on  the Nationalist side. Commandant Kritz-  inger has confounded the pro-Boer partisans here just as Mr. Kruger succeeded in doing tAvo years ago, Avhen he issued his ultimatum. AVhether the British Avere right or Avrong in ordering the  punishment of notorious Cape rebels, the  slaughter of Avounded soldiers and captured blacks Avas not a policy Avhich the  most infatuated Radical could condone.  There cannot he clemency to murderers  even in time of Avar. .>���  NAVAL MANEUVERS.  Accounts of the sham warfare conducted by the fleets are confusing and  long dispatches describing complex maneuvers v are dull reading. Possibly Mr.  Kipling, who is afloat, may succeed  finally in exciting,enthusiasm for'this  costly naval practice-. At present the  main thing proved seems to be that  luck is more important than naval strategy in determining the fortunes of Avar.  The fleet standing: for home defenses  Avas prevented by fog from detaining  the hostile fleet on its Avay to the Sicily  islands, and it has been baffled by fortune at every turn. It had-the Avorst  of the cruiser action, yet was able to  raise the blockade of Alderney. It is  difficult to strike a balance between the  performances of the admirals aiid decide  Avhicti has proved the smarter tactician  arid this seems to be the chief object of  naval maneuvers. There are a good  many sceptics Avho question'the utility  of sham battles at sea and class-them  with the Aldershot revieAvs as poor  training for ��� actual Avar. Comment is  often heard that the Americans, Avhen  the war Avith Spain came on, profited  by their constant target practice, and  kneAV how to handle the big guns and  that the same kind of expert training  in shooting to hit would be more \-al-:  uable than tactical maneuvers, which  can never be on the same level as in  war. The battle of Colenso was lost to  Aldershot, and the croakers suggest that  a future Trafalgar cannot be won,by  maneuvers under imaginary conditions.

It is to be hoped that the next person avIio takes over tho captaincy of the  Nelson team in the place of Mr. Forbes,  who is about to leave for China', wil]  see to it that the Rossland matches are  not dropped. There is also eA-ery likelihood that matches could be arranged  with the Greemvood team, and in this  way interest In the game could be maintained, o  HASTENINC  TO  SICK BED  Of Empress Frederick.  HAMBURG, August 4.���Crown prince  Frederick William, prince Eitel-Freder-  ick and prince August AVilliam arrived  at Cronberg, where the dowager empress  Frederick is lying dangerously ill, at a  late hour tonight. Other royal personages Avho have arrived are prince Adolf  of Sithaumbeig-Lippe, prince and princess Friedrich Carl of Hesse and the  crown prince and princess of Greece.  The following bulletin concerning the  condition of the illustrious patient avis  issued during the afternoon: "The external disease from which her majesty  is suffering andj which for.years has  been slowly increasing has in the course  of the last few Aveeks extended to the  internal organs. Her majesty's strength  is diminishing rapidly owing to inability  to take sufficient nourishment. She is  conscious and at the present AVithout  pain." Emperor William has not yet  arrived at Cronberg. He is expected  there at 3 a. m. tomorrow. Professor-  Renevers, the specialist, wired his majesty to come in all  hasts.  LONDON, August 4.���King Edward,  who has been staying at Cowes, has arranged to leave Portsmouth at 3 a. m.  tomorrow by special train which is due  to arrive in London at 5 a. m. He will  proceed immediately from London by  special train and boat via Flushing to  the bedside of his sister. It is not yet  knoAvn whether queen Alexandra will  accompany him. The duke of Cambridge is already in Cronberg.  LONDON, August 5, 0:20 a. m��� King  EdAvard has postponed his departure  from Portsmouth for Cronberg until 3  p. m.  NEW YORK, Auguac 4.���In a dispatch from London, I. N. Ford, correspondent of the NeAV York Tribune,  says: Empress Frederick's condition is  eA'idently precarious and her end cannot  be deferred many days. The German emperor would not have charged the crown  prince Avith the duty of representing  him at the festivities in Hamburg on  the arrival of count von Waldersee if  there had not been an alarming change  in his motner's condition. 'The reception to von Waldersee Avould have offered to the monarch,-Avho understands  the art of stage management, a remarkable opportunity for commanding the  attention of Europe, and nothing short  of compulsion would have deprived him  of the advantage of a dramatic situation.  These inferences are confirmed by information 'from those in touch with the  court here.that the empress, like her  mother before her, has Avished to have  her condition pass as far as possible  AVithout observation and that she- has  steadily been losing strength with the  progress of her trouble. The had neAvs  has been kept back for a week, as Avas  done when queen Victoria was at Osborne after her first stroke of paralysis,  and public announcements made when-  the situation had^ become serious. Queen  Victoria's last days were darkened by  ���the, knowledge that the empress' malady had been pronounced cancerous, and  she insisted upon having detailed reports of the medical examination and  Avas unable <tos dismiss the subject from  her mind. _ The king and queen may be'  summoned any day;,to Cronberg., The  king's recent exclamation that scientific  experts ought to discover some method  of curing cancer is explained by his  grief over his sister's struggle for life  and his brother-in-law's death from the  same, disease, -There liave been rumors  that the king. himself was in dread of  an attack of the ���saint' malady; and had,  appointed a German specialist to keep  Avatch over his throat, but these may  be dismissed as morbid fancies of court  attendants. The king has a German physician, but his health is better than it  has been for a long period.  BOERS ON PORTUGUESE SOIL.  The mystery, respecting the passage  of a Boer commando into Portuguese  territory is not fully cleared up. The  section where the Boers are now making a desperate stand is a large quadrilateral of mountainous country  stretching from De Aar to Stromberg  and Beaufort Avest to Queenstown. They  are divided into small roving detachments, which are alternately iriassed  and dispersed. - The section of Cape  Colony exposed to the raids of these  bands of Cape rebels and Boers is equal  to about half the area of the Orange  River Colony. In the clearance of these  mountains general French is finding an  undertaking of exceptional difficulty,  -when=the=rebels=are=ai.ded-by-their-for-=  mer neighbors and knoAV every'foot of  . the ground. 7  CHAMBERLAIN'S NERVE.  Whatever may be said about the moralities of reprisals on ruffianism there  is a sense of relief in having a strong  man at the front with the courage required   for   speaking   plainly.     British  politics has reached a stage of flabbi-  ness where the functions of the opposition are paralyzed by faction feuds and  intrigues   and   the  ministers   lack  the  energy needed for pulling themselves together and winding up the session with  dignity and strength.    Suddenly there  is leadership by a statesman who takes  a serious view of a war employing more  than two hundred thousand British soldiers for two years and who knows his  own  mind.    Mr.  Chamberlain's  speech  last night came like a strong gale after  a stagnant  calm.    It created  a great  uproar among the Irish members and intense excitement in the house, and Avhen  the last word Avas spoken it was known  that the government had decided upon  a policy of reprisal in answer to commandant    Kritzinger's   ,challenge.      It  would not be an eye for an eye, or a  tooth for a tooth, but all Boers shooting wounded soldiers or killing natives  in the service of the British would be  court-martialed and sentenced to death.  Mr. Chamberlain did not flinch from, the  start to  the finish.    He  declared "that  houses which sheltered those concerned  in outrages Avere to be burned; that the  policy of devastating the enemy's country was a natural operation of war; that  concentration camps had been humanely  designed  and  administered' in spite of  terrible mortality; that the guerilla war  entered into a campaign of brigandage  and   outrage;   that  mistaken   leniency  was  the policy of the past,  and that  atrocities   and  crimes  against  the  law  of civilized  warfare Avould  be severely  dealt with.   Mr. Chamberlain Avas terribly in earnest and represented the common sense of the middle classes of England, nbAV as always the real stronghold  of political power, when he contended  that the time for illusions and sentiment  had passed, and that a Avar with irresponsible brigands and marauders must  be brought to an end in a business-like  way.    Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman  enacted   the  part  of  a  captain  facing j      It sometimes happens that a Avoman's  both ways for the Liberal factions and J hair is a bit of fiction founded on fact. J  TELEGRAMS IN BRIEF FORM  FROM    VARIOUS   QUARTERS   OF  THE  GLOBE.  Interesting Occurrences of Yesterday  Condensed and Printed in a  General Way.  James D. Byrnes and Phil Corcoran  of San Francisco, Avho have been stopping at the Hume for the past two days,  left last evening for the White Grouse  district. Mr. Byrnes, who is state senator for California, is one of the most  prominent' members of the company  which has the bond upon the Harris  and Fisher groups of claims in the  White Grouse district. Mr. .Cochrane,  Avho "accompanies him, is the man Avho  secured the bond upon the groups for  the company. They are going to look  over the properties and Avill then see  Avhat can be done toward reconciling  the contending factions among the owners of the property Avhich are represented in the litigation -vyhich has been  _started___under__the_"suit oLHari-is _vs-  Fisher, If this matter can be arranged  satisfactorily Avork upon the property  will be started, as the company holding the bond upon the property has ample funds available for development purposes, but it does not intend to buy into  a laAv suit. The bond upon this property has been hung up for more than a  year, to the detriment of the entire district. There has not been very much  Avork done upon the property, and the  entire section is in a measure awaiting the development of the Harris and  Fisher groups.  Senator Byrnes, who is a man of some  74  years of age,  has but recently returned from a trip to New York, wl.era  he became interested in the manufacture of a new explosive, which has been  named  electrite.    This,  it is expected,  will  altogether  supplant  the  dynamite  and giant powders now used in mining.  From   experiments   which   have   been  made  with  it,  it  is pronounced  to  be  very  superior  to   both   of  these  explosives,  in  that it not only has a  third  greater power but that it is smokeless  and gives forth no gases or fumes.   It  is said to be a vegetable preparation, and  is* the result of  elaborate experiments  extended over a period of two years.     It  is said to be entirely harmless in that  it Avill not freeze, nor will it explode  without  the aid  of  a certain   cap.    A  powerful company has been formed for  the purpose of putting the powder, or  Avhatever   it   might   more   properly   be  called,   upon   the   market.     The   chief  manufactory for the United States "will  be in the vicinity of Niagara Falls, New  York.    Senator Byrnes has an arrangement with the present company for the  manufacturing   of   the  preparation   for  the  Dominion   of  Canada  and   is   now  considering the best-method of meeting  the demand which the introduction of  the article upon the market is expected  to create. P. J, Russell will he. the local agent for the Canadian makers, and  in the course of a few days -will have  samples of the product on hand so that  those who desire can test its worth.    It  is said that the new article can be nnarm-  factured so cheaply that it has nothing  to fear from any competition which tlie  makers of the old line explosives may  be expected to put up.

NEW.,YOEIC August 4.'���The full executive committee of the Amalgamated  Association of Iron, Steel and Tin Workers arrived here.Saturday morning. They  .were to hold,, a conference with J. P.,  Morgan, president C.;M.��� Schwab of the  United States Steel Corporation and  other- officials of the big; trust, during  tho day. ,      A  .The steel conference held yesterday-  failed to arriA'e at an agreement. The  proposals of J..P. Morgan through president Shaffer and secretary Williams of  the Amalgamated Association one week  ago are still open, but the strikers',rep-  ��� rcsentatives showed no.inclination to  accept them. The representatives of the  strikers left the conference at which  they have failed to agree with the announcement that they Avould go' into  secret session themselves later in the  afternoon. It Avas admitted that there  might be action at that meeting Avhich.  would change the situation.  NEW YORK, August 4.���After the labor men Avent into session it was given,  out by one of their number that the  proposition made by the United States-  Steel Corporation would not be accept- ���  ed and that there would be no further  conferences betAveen the corporation._and  the Amalgamated Association unless it  should he asked for by the former. It  was also said that the Amalgamated Association representatives probably would ���  leave for Pittsburg tomorrow morning-  PITTSBURG August 4.���It is now a.   .  fight to -the bitter finish betAveen. the  great billion dollar trusts and organized  '  labor.   Mr." Shaffer says that he is ready  by  every  peaceable  means  within  his  power to win a victory.    No quarter is  to be.given and none will.be requested.  The entire"management of the strike has.  been  placd   in  the  hands  of president  Shaffer.   He has absolute power, to call  out every man Avho is connected with tho  organization  and  he  intends to do  it.  He is satisfied with the progress,of the  fight to date.   He finds-jthat none of his  battle   lines   have   been   broken.

BECOMING  LESS FRIENDLY  Chinese A^ain Showing Their Teeth  PEKIN, August 4.���American and European residents assert that the demeanor of the Pekin populace is constantly becoming more unfriendly and  that if the allied troops depart tlio Chinese will resume their old habit of jostling and cursing foreigii'.-rs ln the  streets. The legation defenses are now  approaching completion. Generally  speaking, they consist of brick walls  from 15 to 20 feet high and from thr.ie  to four thick, loopholed Tor rifies. The  ministers of the powers ignored tho  plan "for a uniform system oi defense  submitted by the general and consequently tho governments are working independently. It is the policy of the ministers to avoid conspicuous works of de-*  fense, lest these should prove an irritant, provoking instead of preventing  hostilities. . Most of the engineers have  recommended stronger defense than th?  ministers will sanction. Major Robertson of the Ninth infantry, v.lio commands the United States legation guard,  has written to Mr. Rockhill to protest  against what he calls "the defenseless  position of our legation," representing  that it is exposed to attack dii four  sides. Mr. Rockhill has replied that it  is not intended to maintain i, fortress,  but merely a wall for protection against  unexpected mob violence, 'me wall is  made of brick out of deferenoe to Chinese pride. The French *i.ml Italians  still remain here, The non-fulfillment  of the agreement to evacuate public  places in a fortnight causes some inconvenience to the military authorities.  Only the German barracks have been  completed. The French barraclts have  hardly been begun. The t-oops are  grumbling over being compelled to give  up comfortable quarters and to find temporary camps.   ,  AVhen a boy begins to wash his face  without being told he is passing through  the ordeal of his first love affair.  From San Francisco.  SAN FRANCISCO, August 4.���Mayor.  Phelan's efforts to effect an amicable;  settlement of labor troubles in this city,  have not yet been productive of any-  definite result. At the mayor's request,,  the City Front Federation lias agreed  to let the existing conditions remain unchanged for a short time, to give him  time to secure a final settlement off  terms of compromise from the Employers' Association. The labor council has*  given its executive power to call out  whatever unions it ; may deem neces-  sa��y_Jf_th^^ril-_e__is_not_endecl_by_to-^  night. The council has manifested a.  disposition to inaugurate a Avar of retaliation against the employers who persist in an attitude of hostility toward  the unions. The 'Longshoremen's Union  has. appointed 50 extra pickets and  adopted resolutions censuring all persons who have engaged in quarrels with-  non-union men or the police during the  strike and calling upon all union men.,  to do all in their power to preserve the>  peace.

Wilcox of AVashington, D. C.  and Henry G. Bryant, ex-president of  the Geographical Society of Philadelphia, accompanied by two Canadian Pacific Swiss guides, were defeated in an  attempt to reach its summit, although  an altitude of 11,125 feet was attained.  This is a much higher point than has  previously been reached. Frcnz the  chief Swiss guide, says that Mount Sir  Donald, the highest of the Selkirk peaks,  is a morning walk compared to Mount  Assisiboia. Professor Fay of Tufts College, Boston, and Messrs: Scattegood and  Oitram of Philadelphia, accompanied by*  Swiss guides, succeeded in making the*  first ascent of Mount Vaux and Chancellor peak, but were defeated on Mount  Goodsir. Messrs. Charles Thompson of  Dallas, Texas. C. AV. AVecd of New York  and W.

David B. Bogle says the Memorial of  the Mine Owners' Association is not a  complaint against legitimate grievances  nor an appeal for necessary reforms, but  an indictment against the province. It  Is based upon a supposed condition of  affairs Avhich does not really exist and  buttressed by an ex parte and disingenuous citation of circumstances which are  distorted from their true meaning and  unfairly applied in their real bearing.  The memorial is weak, inaccurate, disingenuous and fatuously impolitic. It  is apparently, designed to lower the credit and sully the reputation of the province among outsiders who are unable  Victim of Italian Brigands.  Italian railroads seem destined to  maintain their reputation for insecurity, and those who travel on them are  just asymuch in danger of brigands as  wero the tourists Avho in times gone by  were wont when traveling by post chaise  and by stage coach to be held up on the  banditti-infested high roads of the Italian peninsula. The latest victim of these  Italian railroad brigands is the duchess  Sophia of Bavaria, married to count  Hans Torring, daughter of that dulcc  Charles Theodore of Bavaria, who is so  famous as- an oculist, and who is the  eldest brother of the late empress of  Austria. While traveling the other'day  on the line between Milan and Genoa  she and hci* maid were suddenly seized,  bound, gagged artd blindfolded by three  well-dressed fellow occupants of the  compartment and robbed of all the valuable jewelry the duchess had Avith her.  Tho crime was not discovered until the  train' was on the point of reaching Milan, and in spite of every effort, no trace  has been found of the robbers. Duchess Sophia, Avhose sister is married to  prince Albert, the heir apparent to the  crown of Belgium, and her third sister  to the heir presumptive to the throne of  Bavaria, is a very attractive young wo-  man, who until her marriage used to  assist her father in his operations find  in nursing his patients. Her husband,  count Torring, is the chief of one of  those mediatized and formerly reigning  families who at one time exercised sovereign sway over the petty states of  Germany, and who retain a number of  royal prerogatives including that of  meeting on a footing of equality Avith  the reigning houses of Europe.

The report which the directors of the  London and British Columbia Goldfields  presented to their shareholders at their  last annual meeting .comprises much  more pleasant reading than most of the  reports which find their way to the  people who put up the cash for the  development of mining properties acquired in this province by British companies. The subject matter of the report is contained in the following:  ������'���������������.     THE YMIR MINES. - / 0  One of the company's principal assets  J; Is still represented by shares in this company, the enhanced value of wliich is  fully demonstrated by that company's  improved position and the large profits  now being made from month to month.  During 1*00 extra stamps and other machinery have been : installed, whereby  the revenue earning capacity of the mine  lias been more than doubled. The cost  of this machinery; etc., was entirely met  "but of;the profits of that year..::Orere-  iserves'have been blocked out for a depth  'of about 400 feet, and the vein sunk on  for a' further depth of 200 feet or more,  |- where it was found to carrv similar  widths and values to that above.  A tunnel is'also being driven for the  purpose of. working the mine at a depth  vof ��� 1000 feet below the surface, -and - is  ; expected to be completed by the end of  ���this year. "  ������',.. The present, operating profits amount  to about  ��5000 per month.  Practical bulk experiments have also  taken place .proving the 'suitability  of  cyanide to the treatment of the tailings,'  from which a further monthly profit of  nearly ��1500 is expected.   ': ...  The   London   and   British  ''Columbia,  i j    'Goldfields  Company's .. share-hoi:liug  in  this   company   is   a   considerable   one,,  ���forming a valuable asset which 1 ho di-  xectors are anxious to, as tar as pessi-  ."ible, retain..  '       THE  WHITEWATER  MINES.'  The London and British Columbia  Goldfields Company's share iuwrest in  this mine remains practically lire' same  as at the end of 1S99.     '. \  The miners' strike did not terminate  until February, 1900, and as some cUfli-  culty was then experienced in getting  a suitable labor force together, it n;,3  not Until somewhat later that the mine  -was able to resume shipments, v-lv-ch,  liowever, were again suspended at The  ���end of last year owing to tho action of  i=^he=vAmericaa=Smelter=Coml*inatiouHn*  refusing to renew their contracts for  dealing with the silver lead ores in  the- district.  This latter circumstance was uinr-  tunate, occurring as it did just at the  time when the mine had' commenced  to pay dividends, which, from the appearance of the developments then being carried out, gave every promise of  continuance.  From these and more recent developments our engineers report the mine as  looking far better than it has done for  a long period previously.  Under these latter circumstances, and  in view of the assistance recently granted to the local silver lead smelters by  tho Canadian government, your directors look forward to an early settlement  of the question and a resumption of  shipments which it is believed would  soon put the company again in a dividend-paying position.  THE ENTERPRISE (B. C.) MINES.  At this mine also the miners' strike  prevented work from being carried t.n  until about tile end of February, 1900,  when a sufficient labor force was procured and mining operations were commenced as soon as possible.  These operations soon revealed the  fact that it was not practicable to handle and separate the ore by means of  hand sorting without undue expense and  considerable loss and consequently steps  were taken for the erection of a suita-  Trte concentrator for the mechanical  treatment of the ore, pending which  only small shipments have been made  and work principally confined to the  further development of the mine.  These developments have been satis  factory in largely adding to the ore reserves previously opened up.  The shares held by the London and  IZ British Columbia Goldfields Company in  this company remain practically the  same as when last reported.  THE   RUTH  MINES.  It will be remembered that the prin-  \.   cipal  vein on this  property which in  the early history of the mine produced  [:   such large quantities of rich ore  ���*  cut off by a huge fault, and appeared to  I   he    lost    altogether.    A    considerable  amount of development work has since  '.'' been  carried out for the double purpose of again finding the vein, and in  [:' looMng for others,, -with the result thai I  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker  Street.

The Morocco and  Newfoundland questions may at any  moment briTig the English face to face  with France; the Nicaragua and Alaska  anestions are full of perilous possibili-.  ties; those who know India best are  most anxious as to the trend of affairs  in that part of the world.

Within this area are contained the Rossland and Boundary districts, already-the most important mining districts of British Columbia.  The advancement of the Boundary  district has recently been so appreciable  that it is confidently expected that that  district alone will require more power  than the Kettle river power undertaking will be able to supply when developed to its full capacity.  Owing to causes over wliich your administration could have no control, it  became quite impossiblt during the, last,  year to realize the company's share assets except at a large sacrifice, which  your directors did not feel it would be  to^the interests of the company to do,  and consequently the.cash profit on  shares sold amounted "to only ��9517  19s. 9d., wliich, after meeting general  administration and other expenditure,  gave a net balance of ��3012 19s. lOd.  -���The policy adopted by the Ymir company in putting its largo profits into the  mine instead of distributing same as  dividendsJalso had an unfavorable effect  upon the profit and loss account herewith presented; as otherwise by its large  holding the London and British Columbia Goldfields Company would have  been entitled! to some ��12,000 from that  .source alone; which, with the balance of  ;��3012 19s. 10d., would have been sufficient for a-' 10 per cent cash dividend  on the capital of the London and British Columbia Goldfields Company.  The mining claims and options which  appear at ��6766 lis. lOd. are takea at  their actual cost, notwithstanding tliat  included in these: are the Alma claims  adjoining tlie Ymir.  Having regard to these valuations,  and to the fact* that the company's very  large interest in the Kettle River Power  Company also appears at the actual  amount expended upon it, the directors  think the shareholders will agree that  they have dealt with the valuation of  assets on a very conservative basis, the  benefit of which policy will be felt at an  early date.

Personally, I have always maintained that the  so-much vaunted modesty of Anglo-  Saxon women is much exaggerated. So  think all the stars of the operatic stage  and concert platform, who, when they  return.home to France or Italy boast  of successes which have nothing to do  with their art, and which ought to put  English and American women on their  guard and make them very careful in  their dealings with them.  a     *     a  The Boers declare they can hold out  another year, and everybody believes  it.

Its hair, skin  and flesh are absolutely preserved, and  there are remains of undigested food in  its,stomach. This is a wonderful find,  as the mammoth must have lived  five or six thousand years ago. Of, course  there are still existine- today restaurants  that supply food which would take longer than that to digest.

Professor Gerhardt, a famous Berlin  physician, has delivered a very Interest-"  ing lecture on the duration of life. He  stated that' far fewer persons lose their  health through overwork than from the  enjoyment of the good things of life.  .He might have mentioned Gladstone and  Littre, undoubtedly the two men who  ���worked most hard in life. They died  at 88 and 90. Of all followers who learned professions, he says, the evangelical  clergyman has the greatest prospect of  long life. He,advocates early marriage,  and a strict time.table. Alcohol and  tobacco are poisons and calculated to  shorten life; their very moderate use,'  however, has no serious effects.-v Affluence, vwriti plenty of work, is excellent,  but affluence combined with ease curtails  life." The lecturer concluded by saying  that the greatest aids to the attainment  of'old age are moderation1 in all things  and plenty of 'occupation.; He should  have added, and an amiable philosophy  and a happy disposition.

He  .has been warning- the extremists in his  diocese that they must abandon the  practice of the reservation of the sacrament and remove the tabernacles from  ritualistic churches. -No general order  has been issued and a compromise may  yet be effected, hut the bishop is now  credited with a firm determination to  forbid certain ritualistic practices which  the archbishops have declared to be illegal. The bishop was Known to'be in  sympathy with- the ritualists when appointed, but the best informed churchmen were convinced that this would be  a strong: resource in regulating the excesses of the extremists and enforcing  compliance with the archbishop's advice.  * ;;The man who boasts of being able.to  spell every word correctly may lot be  much good at anything else.      ���    .."  .J. .J. .J. 7.J. .1. .J. ,T. .!. .J. .J.

D  Dr. Aromstrong Is a boo fancier, and on  Saturday had all the small boys in town  searching for a hive that had swarmed and  went: astray. One hive has swarmed seven  times since Miry 1st and the doctor claims  he has 200 pounds of honey in sight. Me  presented the agricultural editor of The  Tribune with some of the honey, and that  scientific gentleman pronounces it the best  that he has.ever tasted.  Tony Leyden, who made his escape from-  the Nelson jail last.week, is still at largo  and the police have about gven up all  hopes of recapturing him. There is now  just the odd chance that he may be  taken along somo of" the trails in the vicinity of Trail or Rossland, but this is  about the last chance the police have.  Should Leyden get across the boundary  he will be safe, as the offence for which  he was serving time is not an extraditable one.  *   ��   *  Alexander Swanson died at his residence  in this city yesterday.

Ills  funeral will take place this afternoon  from the undertaking parlors of J. G.  Bunyan & Comapny.  ...  A.   E.   Rand  of  New  Westminster,  who I  not' take kindly to the attempt which is  being made by a certain portion of tlie  press to make him wealthy by reason .of  the ��� reported oil discoveries at Grand  Forks." Mr. Rand says, that the reports^  are correct in so fan as-- they state that  he is interested in the work whicli is now-  going on for the discovery of oil, but so  far the oil has not been discovered nor  dobs lie expect to come upon oil for some  time, although he has seen it in: print that  he* has a well flowing already. In conversation with a Tribune representative last  evening Mr. Rand stated that so far nothing had been attempted beyond the sinking' of a prospect hole. This was now down  something over 100 feet, but it had not  yet struck solid rock and he had no means  of knowing whether he should expect oil  at 500 feet or at 1000 feet. One thing he  was sure of and that was that there were  all the indications of oil on the ground and  he proposed to prospect the ground thoroughly in the hope of striking it.  Mining News Is Encouraging".  Tlie Sandon Paystreak of Saturday says  that operations have been resumed at the  Whitewater mine and yesterday a gang  of ten men was put on fixing the ..road and  22 started to work in the mine, besides a  small force in the mill. By tomorrow the  force will be complete with 50 men on the  payroll at the mine, mill and dumps. This  force will operate, the mine and mill for  ono shift.. There is nothing definite as to'  when another shift will be put on. Dan  McKinnon will manage the mill. It is reported that the Whitewater has contracted for. its whole output, with the Trail  smelter. Already 000 tons of concentrates  have been shipped from the ore; stacked  at the K. & S. sidetrack. Manager Wheeler  was in town yesterday and stated; that  there was no necessity for any more men  going to Whitewater as he is'giving the  old men the preference and there are already,  several  men  there  from  Rossland.  The Minnesota mill commenced to grind  yesterday, on rock from the dumps at the  Ivanhoe mine. P. J. Hickey stated yesterday that as soon as some slight repairs  to the tramway were complcVted the payroll would be increased to 30 or 35 men  and the-mill run steady on ore from the  dumps. At present there are about 25 men  working at the mine, and mill. There are  500 tons of rock in the feed bins at the  mill. The tram will be working full swing  by tomorrow.  For the month of July the following  named mines shipped 1000 tons of ore,  namely: Slocan Star 519 tons, American  Boy '143, Noble Five 25, Payne 25, Last  Chance 20, Trade Dollar 20, and Queen  Bess 257.      ,r ;.  .Dr.' Hendryx is managing the Last  Chance in the absence of Mr. Heap,'who  is very sick at Banff.

AVUeu  the  Handled Detectives Roughly.  NEW YORK, August 4���The attack upon  Robert McLellan, one of the detectives  employed by the Society for the Prevention of Grime, who was assaulted and  injured in an alleged poolroom in the rear  of 724 Broadway, is attracting unusual  interest here because of the prominence  of.the location of the room and the circumstances connected with the assault.  War on poolrooms in this city has been  unusually bitter for some time, and McLellan and another detective were in the  room securing evidence at the time of the  attack. The place was crowded with patrons betting on the,races when the detectives were recognized. Some of the employees and a number of the patrons  formed a flying wedge and separated the  two men. McLellan says he was then assaulted with a blackjack. He drew his  revolver and fired in the air. This created  considerable excitement amoni' the inmates, who made unavailing efforts to escape, the doors of the place being locked.  A crowd, however, collected on Broadway  and reports being circulated that agents  for the Society for the Prevention of  Crime were being assaulted, Frank Moss,  the president of the organization, was  notified by telephone. He hurried to the  place with a half dozen of the society's  oflicers and succeeded in releasing McLellan and'the other detective.
