IS HENRY BRATNOBER IN ROSSLAND TO TAKE CHARGE?  Is the End in Sight of the Bickerings  That Have Existed in Rossland  o -        ���       7 -  for Many Months?  ROSSLAND, August 25.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The arrival this evening of Henry Bratnober, the San Francisco mining engineer who has figured  so prominently of late in all the Le Roi  matters, has aroused a good deal of  local  interest. oMr. Bratnober came di-  ��� rect from Spokane and is quartered at  the Allan. He is alone and declined to  make any statement for publication this  evening. It is stated, however, that; he  ' is here especially on Le Roi company  business, and that in the event of his  'friends in London succeeding in reconstructing the directorate at the meeting on the 29th instant, he will take  charge here for the time beiug until  some definite arrangement is made. It  is generally admitted that Bernard McDonald  is  entirely  in  the  darkTas  to  ~ what will be the policy of the new Le  Roi board, but his own removal appears  to be a .foregone conclusion. Ex-governor Mackintosh appears to be well contented with the way matters are shaping. He declined to make any statement .this evening after he met Mr.  Bratnober, but apparently the two men  understood each other thoroughly and  are working together. Some very interesting developments are expected in a  day or so. J. Rodrick Robertson of Nelson is still here. -  'Robert James ~Trechcville, a well  known English mining engineer is mentioned as the man who. will take Whittaker Wright's place in London on the  Le Roi board.  News From Ymir Town and District  YMIR, August 25.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���The. item that'appeared in  the Ymir special Saturday re the Liberal  Association meeting thaf unanimously  indorsed Dr. A. C. Sinclair of Rossland  as senator for the Kootenays, created  some comment. It has since been learned- that ��� the doctor 'was not the choice  of the Liberals of - Ymir, but- of three  members of the alleged Liberal:Association who were the only ones present,  the balance of the Liberals in camp  not knowing that such an association  existed. This association is composed  of men who are like the doctor���out for  everything political in sight, as it is  generally known that Drl Sinclair, while  he resided in Port Elgin, Bruce county,  Ontario, always had his "mit" out for  anything .within the gift of the people,  but always being turned down.  An agent" of the Toronto Globe was  in Ymir yesterday soliciting, subscriptions and any old thing he could get.  When he learned of the hold The Tribune had in the'- camp, he hied himself  hence. The people of this camp don't  want "down home" news. 'Tis up-to-  date reading they are after.  At present Ymir is bounded on the  north by a bush fire and on the soutl  by another big blaze.  There's  an  opening in camp  for ar  assayer.

This property har  been idle for quite a while, but it is understood will resume operations in r  " week or 10 days.

There's a lot of birdr  in this vicinity, and are coming dowr  from the hills.  The Porto Rico -mill has shut down.  The   cause   is   a  broken   engine  shaft,  which was sent to Spokane to be re  paired.    About the middle of the week  the sawdust will be flying again.  The Spotted Horse, adjoining the-Por-  to Rico, owned by Cole, Ditten & Mc  Mullen, is looking fine. At the Portr  Rico siding about. 50 sacks of ore art  lying ready for shipment. It was visited  by an expert Friday and he pronounced  it some of the best rock he has seen ir  the district, being free milling'. A mil'  test is to be given.

Pionesr Society  GREENWOOD, August 24.���[Special  The Tribune.]���The Boundary Pioneers'  Association will hold its fourth half-  yearly dinner and reunion at the Pioneer hotel, Greenwoofl, on the evening  Ot Monday, September 2d.    The Labor ;  Day celebration arranged to take-place  in Greenwood on that day will in any  case attract*many of the old-timers to  the town, and now it is anticipated that  this additional inducement will lead  others to come in as well. The association was organized at Boundary Falls  about two years ago, and its flrst reunion was held at Thomas Wake's Boundary Falls hotel. The second social  meeting took place at Thomas McAu-  ley's Boundary hotel, Midway. The last  social gathering was at Hugh Cameron's  hotel at Camp McKinney, and now it is  to fall to J. W. Nelson to see that his  many old-time friends have a right good  time. Deaths and removals have in  some "measure reduced the membership  of the association, but among it's" present members are some of the oldest pioneers of the Boundary country.  UNION   LABEL   SALVATION  CHINESE SMUGGLED ACROSS  FROM    MEXICO    INTO   ARIZONA  THROUGH THE CONNIVANCE '  Of a Corrupt United States Collector  and an Equally Corrupt Immigration  Inspector.  Now in Great Demand.  Some amusing stories .are now going  the rounds as to the-lengths to which  ardent sympathizers of the striking  trackmen went in their efforts to secure  a favorable verdict' for the men who  were trying to get more favorable terms  from the rail-way .company. Men who  were bold enough to take employment  with the company in the places of the  strikers, or even went so far as to offer  for service as patrolmen, were marked  and pursued by those who disproved "of  their' conduct as far as pursuit could  ���well be carried, even the kingdom, of  Heaven not being too remote as a field  for recording such condemnation as was  considered should follow the man who  in'any way whatever assisted the railway company .in its fight with the trackmen. One man whoc got mixed up in the  affair used to play the euphonium in the  Salvation Army band. He went out as  a patrolman or on such service for the  company,: with the result that a number of his fellow bandsmen refused to  play any longer in the same band. They  wero stout union men, and while they  were preaching "room" for the vilest  sinner they evidently wanted it distinctly understood that there was no  "room" for any they regarded as a scab.  Like the members of the Slocan City  council they believed in the union label,  and wanted it on their brand of salvation. As a result the euphonium player  went, and he never came back.  There was another case of somewhat  similar nature. One of the men who had  charge of a gang of patrolmen and  watchmen has a voice which is in demand in tlie city church choirs. When  he .was not engaged in looking after  the watchmen he was singing in the  the Congregational church This was resented by some of the'������.���'(lent sympathizers .of the trnckmen.The result was that  tho pastor,o��..the.church was waited upon and given an intimation.-that 'it-  would be better for the church if the  sweet singer's voice were hushed. The  parson was in a quandary as to what he  had better do. There *yas in the congregation however' a politician: of many  year's standing. He considered the sweet  singer a good card to draw to, and refused to be driven out. The result was  that the singer kept on singing, and a-  year from now it will be difficult to get  anyone to believe that such' a thing  could -happen in a congregation of professed Christians.  Boundary Ore Shipments.  GREENWOOD, August 24.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The tonnage of ore  shipped by Boundary district mines during August, to 21st instant inclusive,  as-far as has been ascertained from the  mines, is as under: ���     V.

One Body Recovered    ���  CLEVELAND, August 25.'���The body  of Albert Valincourt, one of the victims  of the Crib No. 3 disaster, was recovered  today by divers. It was found in the  air shaft, 80 feet below the surface. The  bodies of the other four victims are believed to be buried under 30 feet of mud,  and it will be several days before they  can be recovered.  On the Way to Apologize,  BERLIN, August 25.���Prince Chun,  brother of the emperor of China, and  members of the Chinese mission, on the  way to Berlin to apologize for the murder of baron von .Kettelei'j German minister in Pekin, have arrived at Basil,  Switzerland. Prince Chun, who is ill,  will remain there for a few days.  Makes a Record Shipment  PHOENIX, August 24.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���This week's ore shipments break the record from the Granby  Company mines at Phoenix, being over  200 tons more than last week. The shipments for the week were 5476 tons.  Burred at the Stake  WINCHESTER,   Tenn.,   August  25 ���  Henry Poles, who killed Mrs. Williams,  was taken from the jail here and burned  at the stake.  WASHINGTON, August 24���Probably  the most important arrest ever made in  connection with smuggling of Chinese  across the Mexican border into the  United States was made yesterday in  Arizona, when W. M. Hoey, collector of  customs at Nogales, B. F. Jesse, an immigration inspector, Frank Howe, a.'Chi-  . nanian living in Nogales, and another  Chinaman living at Clifton, Mexico,  across theborder from Nogales, were  taken into custody by special agents of  the treasury .and secret service. operatives., Other arrests are expected to follow within a day or two. It is stated  that with two or three exceptions the  whole customs and immigrant administrations .at Nogales are involved. Some  time ago an official of the treasury department, with Nogales as his head-  . quarters, wrote the department that he  had reason to believe the official force  at that point was corrupt, and that Chinese in large numbers were being smuggled across the border for a consideration. A secret service operative was  sent there at once, and plans laid to secure evidence against the" persons under  suspicion. Several Chinamen were furnished with money and sent on to buy  their way through the official cordon.  This was accomplished without difficulty, the price demanded being from $50  to $200. The secret service men also arranged with one or two employes whose  honesty had been tested to go into the  collector's office and ascertain and demand a share of the money being received from Chinamen and to be admitted into the combine, so thatthey might  get their part of'the proceeds of future  deals. This was reluctantly agreed to;  and considerable sums of money were  handed over in the presence and full  hearing of a secret service man who  had previously secreted himself in a  near-by closet. The officials soon found  that Chinamen who presented a certificate marked with the letter were allowed to proceed without question, while  .those having certificates but did not-  bear the cabalistic mark were turned  back- without ceremony.  PHOENIX, Arizona, August 25.���William M. Roey, collector of customs at  Nogales, left for that place last night  on a call from McLean Lemor, special  assistant to attorney-general Knox. It  is understood that Lemor holds warrants for the arrest of Roey and B. F.  Jessey, Chinese inspector, charged with  smuggling Chinese from Mexico into the  United States. He.was accompanied by  assistant; United States attorney T. D.  Bennett: The implication of Roey caused;  a sensation. It has long been known  that secret service officers were laboring  to stop the smuggling of Chinamen, but.  with little success. Several Chinamen  have been captured and deported, but  many more and many Chinese girls have  been brought across the border.  It Has Lasted Forty-three Days.  PITTSBURG, August 24.���The closing  =6f=tlfe^sixth=week=of=the-general^teel"  strike finds the controversy apparently  as far from settlement as it was the 13th  of July, when the joint conference of  manufacturers and workers disagreed  and president Shaffer of the Amalgamated Association of Iron, Steel and Tin  Workers issued his first order calling  out the employes of the Sheet Steel and  Steel Hoop Companies. After 43 days  both sides maintain the same firm front,  and the contest which has been waged  bitterly, with varying success, gives  promise of continuing for an indefinite  period. When seen this morning, president Shaffer expressed himself as well  satisfied with the situation up to the  present time. He reiterated his former  statements that the association still had  several surprises in store for the manufacturers, but he refused to give any  information as to what they were. At  the offices of the Steel Company, it is  said the situation was generally satisfactory in all the plants in the Pittsburg districts. The postponement of the  attempt to start the Demmler plant of  the 'American Tin Plate Company until  next week was said to be for the purpose  of having the plant in order when the  men start work. It was also stated that  idle plants qf the National Steel Company at Bellaire/ Ohio, would be started  next week.   Riflle Association Tournament.  NEW YORK, August 25.���The teams  which will represent America in the international rifle shooting contest which  takes place during the tournament of  the National Rifle Association of America at Seagirt, New Jersey, during the  next two weeks, have not as yet been  selected by brigadier general Spencer.  The general has decided on choosing  the eight men arid two alternates who  will take part in the American centennial trophy contest. This match will  be shot on September 5th, and it is for  the championship of the world for teams  of eight men, open to riflemen of all  countries, with the conditions that each  team must use the military arm of the  country which it represents. The only  foreign entry for this event this y<*ar  is "that of the Dominion Rifle Apf-oc.ia-  tion of Canada. Major Mason of Hamilton will be the captain of the team  and his men will be selected at the conclusion of their annual meeting which  is being held* in Canada this week; On  September Cth the revival of the Creed-  moore-Gollymount matches will take  placo between teams representing the  New Jersey State Rllle Association and  the Ulster Rifle Association of Belfast,  Ireland. General Spencer has deferred  the selection of the American team for  this match until after the arrival of the  visitor's, who are expected here on the  steamship Servia next.Wednesday. The  conditions of the match call for teams  of not less than five or more than eight  men, and the number is to be decided  on the arrival of the Irish team. The  Irish and the Canadian visitors will be  the guests of the National Rifle Association during the tournament, and colonel Thomson has loaned his steam  yacht to the reception committee for  the purpose of meeting the Ulster rifle-,  men on the arrival of the, Servia.- By  special permit the Irish passengers and  their baggage will be transferred, to the  yacht when the Servia reaches the quai*-:  antine station.  TWO NELSON MEN WOUNDED  CANADIANS   DRIVEN   BACK   BY  DE WET'S TROOPS.  Sergeant Hit-lop Tells How the Trick  Was Done by Which They Were  Nearly All Bag/red.  WEIGHTY EVENT PROMISED  By Steel Corporation Managers    .  PITTSBURG, "August 25���Some events  in the mills, of the United States Steel  Corporation are promised for, the present week, which will change the aspect  of affairs considerably if carried out.  It was stated on good authority today  that before the end-of the week those  of the plants which have been operating  on single turn would be run with full  force and for the usual three full turns  each day. Men enough' have been secured for this purpose, the officials say,  and the managers, of the various mills  say they will be ready with all the skilled men required to start up the. machinery and turn out a heavy tonnage. The  most interesting situation is in the Star  mill of the American' Tin Plate .Company in this city. Tho company had,  it is said, decided to abandon -the mill  and move the machinery elsewhere.  Since the strike-has come on them and  it was demonstrated that tne operation  of the mill with non-union men was  possible, under the protection of an  equipped force of police, the officials decided to keep the mill a permanent fixture of the company. The most significant feature of this plan was carried out  during the last week, when the former  eight mills wero changed to four double  mills. Other improvements have v been  added that will give a large capacity,  increase the force of men, and make it  one of the. most modern of all the tin  plate mills of the country. With the  completion , of the, improvements, the  company will be prepared to slace a  sufficient number of men in the plant to  work four .double mint, mree full-turns.  'Before Saturday next', according'to su-'  perintendent Piper, the Star .plant will  be in operation to the full extent.  Betting Like to Be Even Money  NEW -YORK, August 24.���Professional betting men are beginning to  show a keen interest in the coming international yacht race, and some men  who are well known in the . sporting  world are inclined to give the long end  to Shamrock. One of the most prominent of these sporting men is quoted  as saying that the men who make bets  are disgusted "with1 the trials of the  American boats and that those with the  bank xolls do not like the, performance  of the Constitution. The opinion is  that even money on the race will prevail. Another high authority of this  class says that he has found feeling and  sentiment in favor.of Shamrock and he  cites an Instance of a bet by a Chicago  man of $100 to ?250 that sir Thomas  iwould=win.^Reports=received=fi*om=De-=  troit tell bf a bet of $500 to $300 made  by a Toronto man with a United States  army officer that Shamrock would be  the victor. Even money bets are reported from Indianapolis, and word  comes from St. Louis that the prevailing  odds there are four to five in favor of  the American boat. No heavy betting  is reported from any place.  Government Owneshrip in Natal.  In a letter from Natal, James Cummings, Dominion trade commissioner to  South Africa, says: "The colony of Natal owns all the lines of railway, 550  miles, and transports Natal products for  about one-third less than foreign, in this  way protecting the farmers. The net  revenue from the railways pays the  interest on the entire public debt and  a large portion of the ordinary government expenditure, reflecting much credit  on the general manager, David Hunter,  and the colonial government. Little Natal in her railway policy has improved  very much over Canada. If all the  money expended by municipalities and  governments in Canada for railways,  canals, and harbors had been kept in  the ownership of the people, managed  for the benefit of Canadians, made self-  sustaining and patriotic in developing  our own cities and harbors and carrying Canadian products for lower rates  than our neighbors, nothing would be  heard about a railway commission."  Was Given a Vote of Thanks.  . NORTH BAY,' Ontario, August 25 ���  The conciliation committee, whoso services were accepted by the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company and their  striking trackmen, presented their report here on Saturday to a meeting of  all the brotherhoods. The report had  been adversely commented on by some  members of the different brotherhoods,  but after a full explanation by Charles  Pope, chairman of the conciliation committee, and the presentation of the full  minutes of the meeting, which makes  some rather interesting reading, it was  decided that the conciliation committee  had done everything possible and that  the trackmen should accept the proposition made. Chairman Pope was complimented on his handling of the case  and a vote of thanks was given him,  The Nelson boys who are serving with  the South African constabulary have  had a brush with the.wily De Wet and  letters that are now coming to hand tell  of the skirmish which took place more  than two months ago, in which three  western men were killed and a number  of . Nelson and other Kootenay, men  wounded. The Canadians who were in  the mixup were members of the 17th  troop, division A, of the constabulary,  and "the party in addition\.to the loss  of the three Canadians and the wounding of several others.lost a. 7-pounder.-  Sergeant Hislop in a letter to a friend  in Nelson describes the affair in the  following way: On July llth a small  party of about 100 men under captain  McDowell was scouting about four miles  from Hout Kop. McDowell's force consisted of two detachments from the 10th  and 15th troops of the constabulary,  which were largely recruited in England, and 23 mounted and 7 men on  foot from tho 17th'troop, which is composed very largely of; Kootenay and  western Canadian men. Sergeant Hislop  had charge of the dismounted' squad,  and consequently did not see as much  of the affair as the mounted men. The  Canadians were on- the right flank' of  the scouting party and opened-fire on  the Boers firs.-;. Captain McDowell'soon,  .ascertained that the Boers very greatly  outnumbered his force and he ordered  the boys to retire. The men, of troop  17 however were too much in advance,  or for sonic reason they did not hear the  order to retire, but kept pumping the  lead into the Boers whenever the opportunity offered. The result was that they  drew a great deal of the Boer fire and  lost three killed and several wounded.  The killed were: Sergearit major Chambers, who enlisted at Calgary, Alberta;  trooper Sproulc, who enlisted at Fort  Steele; and trooper Begg, who enlisted  ���at Revelstoke. The wounded included  trooper Mclntyre of Revelstoke, trooper  Curtis of Nelson,- trooper Herchimer of  .Rossland,- and trooper Gravely -of  Nolson." .  Captain McDowell's force ��� inflicted,  considerable damage to the forces of  De Wet, but could not maintain their  position and were forced to retire, leaving a 7-poundcr in the enemy's hands.  From reports received after the skirmish the Boer loss was 25 killed and  25 wounded. The Boers were evidently  very much in need of clothing, as they  stripped-the dead and wounded, as well  as ten Canadians whom they, captured.  The latter were, sent back to camp in.  their bare feet and in most cases with  but a single article of clothing lef I  them.  - , v  Of the wounded the most serious if  trooper Herchimer. He was shot through  the head while in the act of mounting,  his horse. In his case there is a possibility Of inflammation setting in. He if  a nephew bf colonel Herchimer of the  Northwest mounted police. Cf the Nelson men wounded Curtis -was hit twice.  ^He^=yyas^sl,..ot=.tliiLo.ugh=tlie=i'ight^c!i.3i!k  and through the right shoulder, but is  not in"any danger. Gravely, the otliei  Nelson man, was also hit twice, once in  tlio left arm and again in the right  thigh. All the wounded were doing well  at the time of sergeant Hislop's writing. From the tone of sergeant Hislop's  letter it is evident that the novelty of  the service is wearing off and most of  the boys would very much prefer to be  at home in Kootenay to chasing Boers  who refuse to be taken. That they will  get back as soon as possible is certain,  as the pay in the civil service and police in South Arfica is not what they  thought it would be, the pay for men on  tho civil police at Ladysmith and other  points being but $50 per month. Sam  Calkin has boon discharged from the  service as medically unlit. He is endeavoring to get permission to stay In Durban, where he has a number of friends,  otherwise he will be returned to Kootenay.  as is always possible among the Malays,  it would be better to have a sufficient  body of troops available for such an  emergency. General Chaffee says he  considers the city of Manila to be perfectly orderly, and can see no prospect  of an uprising. Commissioner (, Wright  thinks the people extremely peaceable  and is satisfied, although among a certain class there is some discontent on  account of the land tax. which is not  yet understood. This class, however,  is riot likely to foment trouble.' Word  was received today that the insurgent  colonel Lorrel, with 17 oxcers and -13  men, surrendered yesterday to -.aptain  Brown of the Fourth infantry at Lalisay.  The surrender of numerous other smaller contingents last week brings the total to more than 100.  THE GAME OF HIDE AND SEEK  WEEKLY BATCH OF GOSSIP  The Sale Likely to Be Ratified  COPENHAGEN, August 24.���A prominent politician in the counsels of the  ministry today told a representative of  the Associated Press that the sale of  Danish West India, it was confidently  expected, would be consummated before  the close of the present year. The king  and the new cabinet have both concluded  that it is absolutely necessary for-; Denmark to dispose of the islands and a  majority of the rigsdag favors the sale,  as does also the public: The only dissatisfaction arises in connection with  the price ($3,000,000) being too small.  However, tho final approval of the rigsdag is believed to be assured, and it is  expected that legislative ratification will  be given in Washington in December.  Large Force Maintained at Manila  MANILA, August 25.���In the city  there are now no fewer than 10.000 effective soldiers, and it has been decided  to increase that number by four companies of infantry. The official reason for  the increase is that the guard duty is  too heavy for the present force. As a  matter of fact, however, there is a feeling that, although there is no apparent  prospect of trouble, nevertheless, in the  event of an uprising in the future, such  From a London Special.  NEW YORK, August 25.���The London  correspondent of the New York Tribune  sends the following cable" dispatch this  morning: " .!-";: ^*  The German crown prince is the chief  .lion in the" Scotch castles. The season  in the Highlands is now. at its height  and is a brilliant one despite the court  mourning. '...-'-. x..:--.'---_  The duke of Cornwall; who; is a more  capable prince than is ordinarily supposed, has created a fine impression  everywhere on his tour by his tact and  dignity, and has imparted a fresh impulse to the cause of imperial federation upon the future of which each and  .every Briton largely depends.  Ceplius Brainerd of New York presided over the most important four sessions of the International Law Association in Glasgow. When justice Philli-  more read a paper on- marriage laws  and there was a long discussion the do-  bate disclosed little faith among lawyers that civilized nations would agree  upon a uniform code of marriage and divorce law. Scotland was -described as  the country where marriage could : be  most hastily projected and South Africa as the land where it could be most  easily be dissolved, twenty- four hours  desertion being sufficient ground for an  absolute decree of divorce.  The Methodist Congress in London  promises to be a most important religious event.  ��� The Deutchiand, the Campania, and  the St. Louis havo gone out with every  berth occupied and another- steamer  could have been filled with Americans  seeking passage to' New York.-The ac-  "commodation offered by the trans-Atlantic lines was never larger, but during the next six weeks it will be unequal to the demands oi travelers. Tourist traffic while unusually heavy does  ,not explain this rush for places on westward bound ships. The tourists, with  few exceptions, are booked"-for"a- re-,  turn passage when they sail from America. There' has been a marked increase in traffic between the two countries, and business men who are unable to time their journeys with precision are* crowded out when they attempt to secure passage at the busiest  time of the steamship trade.  The archbishop of Canterbury, who is  in his eighty-first year, did not marry'  until he was bishop ot Exeter and consequently he celebrated today his silver wedding. The festivities occured in  archbishop Temple's new house in  ���Canterbury, withvtwo sons from his  own college (Balliol) joining in them,  and are most hearty, for he has lived  down the Laspersities of controversial  dialectics, once bitter enough, and commands respect as one of- the greatest  primates in the history of the English  church. While he was once reproached  for being a radical bishop, yet he insisted on marrying a relative of three  =dukes=Mrsrs-Temple=-has=-proved=a=model=  of democratic simplicity and has endeared herself to the masses.  Whitehall, for the third time in six  years, is being repaved and the contractor is attempting to break all records of London street repairing by do:  ing the work in ten days. The pathos of  London poverty is disclosed day by day  in this historic year. A record of children with sacks and barrows removes the  old wood as fast as it is loosened by the  pickaxe. Claims are pegged off as if  Whitehall were a mining belt, and fire  wood.is collected as eagerly as if there  were gold in each broken block.  Attempting a Great Swimming Feat.  LONDON, August 21.���Today, the anniversary of captain Webb's swim from  Dover to Calais. France, a once famous  cyclist, Mr. Holbein, left Dover for Calais, .whence he will attempt to swim  back to Dover.  BOLOGNE SUR MER, France, August  24.���Holbein, who was apparently in  excellent form, entered the water at  4:15 p. m. He was accompanied by a  tug and by a steamboat The sea was  choppy, but Holbein, who has done tome  of his best cycling at night, said lie preferred night swimming and that he  would take only 18 hours to cross the  channel.  Didn't Accomplish It  ��� DOVER, England, August 25.���Hol-  b'ein, who yesterday started from Cape  Grisnez (between Boulogne-Sur-Meir  and Calais) in an attempt to swim to  Dover, narrowly escaped drowning. He  covered the course to a point within six  miles of Dover and then collapsed after  having been in the water 12 hours and  45 minutes. The tug which accompanied  him took him from the water and  brought him to Dover at 6 o'clock this  morning. He was carried to a hotel unconscious, and subsequently, on the advice of his. medical attendants, was removed to a hospital, where he lay for  some time in a serious condition. It was  found that his eyesight had been badly  affected by the salt water. Tonight,  however, he had recovered and announced his intention of trying again.  Holbein's exploit was very remarkable,  considering the rouehness of the sea.  and has established a record.  WITH   VARYING   CHANGES   CON    <>  TINUES IN SOUTH AFRICA.  Delarey  Issues a Counter  Proclamation Warning the Boers Not  to Surrender.  NEW YORK, August 25.���In a dispatch dated at 1 o'clock this morning  from London, Isaac N; Ford, London  correspondent of the New York Tribune,  says:  The game of hide and seek goes on  in South   Africa, with   small   success  scored from week to week by the British  army.    General    Kitchener's    estimate ���  that  there were  13.500  Boers  in  arms   .  early in July is reduced by recent weekly  reports to a little over 10.000.    Where  the fragments of cammandoes making  up this aggregate are is a mystery.   The  largest hostile force is  in the  eastern*  Transvaal, but probably it does not exceed '800 burghers.   Scheeper's comman- -  do is the only one south of the Orange -  river, and general French is operating  -  against it.   Kritzinger and Wessel have .'  been reinforced in the .Wepener district  J.  by the bands which Knox was driving :  through the Orange River Colony, butv"  this   Boer   force   cannot   be   above   400 '  men.    This force will be between two  fires,  but wil  probably "escape by-subr  "  dividing and scattering the commandoes,   ,  which has often been done before in the  same section by Dewet, Oliver, and other   *  Boer generals.  Royalty comes out of the storm and  stress of the war period more creditably-",,  than the government or the opposition^ '  The military campaign from the'outset^"  has-been blocked and thwarted by lack  of  official   foresight  and  practical. talent.    Blunders have followed blunders/  but  the  final   exhibition  of* incapacity' -  was ��� the   recruiting  of  16,000   imperial   (  yeomanry largely with men who could  neither ride norvshoot. Lord Kitchener's  ironical   description   of   this   corps   of.  unsuitable and invalid soldiery has dis- -  credited  the .war-office,  which  paid  a  premium   of  five  shillings    a   day   for  troopers of this class as substitutes for  seasoned   men.    The  opposition -would  have been .able to make effective use*of  this demonstration of official inaptitude  if it had taken a patriotic stand from  .the.outbreak ofjhe war.   Faction feuds  and thVpro-Boer attitude o'Mhe extreme" '  Radicals have broken the"force of Lib- ,'  eral  criticism   of  government  failures.  Royalty is not held responsible for these  blunders of administration and is cred-   ���  ited. with  sagacity  for  forecasting the  trend  of imperialistic tendencies.    The  tour of the duke of Cornwall and York   '  is a practical contribution to the cause  of'imperial   federation   and   without  a  single disagreeable incident. It has been  well timed at the close of a campaign   '  in which some of the best work has been  done  by  colonial  soldiers.    The  Canadians   wero  the  heroes   of  Paardeburg  and the Australians have shown remark- ,  able endurance and fighting power. Wil-�� -  Hams'   column,   which   has   captured  a  Boer convoy  this  week  after covering    .  60 miles in 27 hours, was made up chiefly  of colonial troopers from the South seas.  Mr.    Kruger's   protest   against   lord  Kitchener's proclamation, when it is addressed to the powers committee at The    <  =Haguerwill-loso-much-of-its-force-from���  the fact that the South African Repub- '  lie and the Orange Free State were excluded   from   the  peace  congress.    The  government of the Netherlands, before   '  issuing the  invitation  to the  congress  included tho two republics of South Africa, which had consular officers at Tho  Hague, sent it to St. Petersburg, but it  was   returned   with   the   names  of  the  two republics crossed  out.    Either tho  czar was unwilling to offend England or  the   forei**rn   office   here   had   Intimated  that it would have nothing to do with  the peace congress if the two republics-  wore   invited.    The   Dutch   government  did not enter a protest and the congress  was held without the presence of delegates from South Africa.    Mr. Kruger's  protest will be made in the interest of  the two states  who were specially excluded from the convention.   This may  be an advantage for England at a time  when  the resources  of  the  Boers aro  nearly   exhausted;   but  it   would   have  been a greater gain for England during  the last two years if the two republics   -  had  been  represented  in  the congress  and had  been  under obligations to respect the enlightened principles adopted ������  by it.  A casualty list given out last night  betokens a serious fight which had rot  been adequately reported.  The latest dispatches from Holland  indicate a despondent and almost hopeless feeling among Mr. Kruger's friends.  LONDON, August 25.���The war office  has received the following dispatch from  lord Kitchener, dated at Pretoria today:  "Delarey has issued a counter proclamation warning all Boers against my latest  proclamation, and declaring that they  will continue the struggle."  PlaciDg the Responsibility.  CLEVELAND, August 24.���Coroner  Simon today rendered his verdict on tho  disaster at Crib No. 2, which caused the  loss of a dozen lives 10 days ago. He  finds the City of Cleveland, the sub-contractors, and the crib engineer jointly  responsible. The former because the  officials knew, through inspectors, of the  absence of ordinary precautions for saving life; the sub-contractors because  they failed to provide protection to life;  and the engineer because he permitted  the smokestacks to become overheated.  iii  51  I  :m  "-.���I  *-hI  -" I  -*-' I  I  111  H  III  4.  ��� its  I? .-Jr-iL^-i^i;- l^^l-^-V-tf^fwy-J^y-ft  '*}���$  !:ht_'  M  m  INCORPORATED 1670.  ������MirA*'-h~ii��^ iw>r^al*-a**-*lM*��***q*-*ry^  THE NELSOJST��� TfilBUNE, MONDAY MOBKIM, AUGUST 2<3, 1001  _^y~z       _t__t;_ .-^. .^^j^.���-���~.    ���   r_. -^ _. ���,��� _. ^^._,. _ ���HK.. ....

Is  it any wonder that our year books are  ancient history and our school books  so grotesquely inaccurate.  A silver-lead smelter in East Kootenay, where there appears to be great  bodies of workable ore and where coal  and colce" is within easy reach, should  be a practicable and profitable business  venture. The more smelters there are  in British Columbia, the more prosperous will be British Columbia.

[This offer holds 7 good to shareholders  Resident"in Europe until August;24th,  land" to shareholders not resident in Eu-  Tope until September 19th. .:���..,���'-.���  In connection with the plans of the  reorganized company the liquidator of  Ithe   Granite   encloses   the   report   of  FMe-"srs.7:Archbold"--'&"Pearson   on   the  Kiropertiesof the Granite- Mines,- which  are now being advertised; for "sale by  rthe court to satisfy a judgment of the  [Duncan Mines for the sum of $140,000.  i Since this report was received in London  the company's engineer has reported the  finding'of another vein on the property  ���which he lias'called the west- vein. This  vein has been traced across Eagle creek,  and the ore from .it assays as high as  $38.80 "per. ton.,.'The first work to  be  undertaken by the new. company will  be the sinking of the underlay shaft  from the No. 4 level of the Toorman to  a depth of 300 feet.,. This is; in line -with  the recommendation of engineer Woakes  >and is expected to increase the ore reserves and enable the company to keep  [going the enlarged battery which it is  'proposed to install whilst further devel-  f-opments upon the property are being  tcarried out..- Plans showing the work-  Fings on the Poorman Granite group have  Valso been submitted.    They show that  Kipon the group  there have  been two  kshafts sunk 250 and 210 feet respectively  land eight tunnels driven a total length  jof^4700^feet,=from_whicii^h^j3OjnPAnj7  [.extracted and crushed 16.356 tons - of  lore which yielded in values $139,S0o.  [Engineer Woakes proposes to concen-  Itrate his development work, upon the  IGr'ifnite-Poorman group, from winch he  lexpects to obtain an output of at least  13000 tons of ore per month. This output  ie expects to obtain after carrying on  lis development program for six  lonths. ���    ,,  The   renort  of   Messrs.  Archbold  Ar  3earson on the property makes interest-  ling reading.   In their opinion the Poor-  Inan vein is the principal  one of * the  Granite-Poorman  group,   and   for  this  reason they recommend the exploitation  it it upon the lines proposed.    It has  jeen opened up by four levels connected  to the surface by cross-cut tunnels.   In  Eheir report they set out that the ground  ibove the No. 2 level on the Poorman  i-as worked out by the,former owners.  U the time that the report was mado.  En November last; the No. 4 level south  lad just passed through one of the dykes  If eruptive' rock which are met with in  Ihe Poorman, and the vein on the south  \t the dyke stood stronger than it had  Jreviously .been in that level.   This level  driven 540 feet on the vein from the  itersection of the cross-cut tunnel.   No.  is in 120 feet on the vertical above No.  and an intermediate level is driven  lalf way between the.two.    The intermediate and No. 3 levels are not quite  far in as the No. 4, but the vein in  III   bf. them   is   looking  exceedingly  jtrong.   A rise was then. being put up  ~ove No". 4 to communicate with the  fitermediate, where there is a vein 3 1-2  pet in width.   When the Communication  made driving on the No. 4 will be re-  jimed, and if the vein continues in this  |vel, the interme'diatg, and No. 3 at its  resent size: and Vfflifes, the value of the  fine will be greatly enhanced.   The en-  J.neers remark" that they had been in-  Irmed by the company's  engineer  in  jiarge of the development that he had  liked the directors for .��10,000 or ��12,-  |)0 for the purpose of opening up and  iiuipping, the mine with a view to in-  [easing the output, and handle the out-  it in the most economical manner, and  \ey add that in their opinion the mine  till repay-the cost necessary to put it  pi a better footing.'  (Their estimate of the ore to be had  ��om present development is 5500 tons,  Thile the raise in the end of No. 4 south  ���ill open up 2000 tons more.  The capac-1 be lessened in conseijuence.

Although samplings  of the ore give $14 per ton, it has been  found impossible to get mill feed samplings- so -high on account of country  rock being unavoidably sent down, with  the ore. They express themselves as. of  '"the opinion, however, that with extra  sorting and picking the grade of the  ore could be kept up to $10 per ton,  and a total extraction of $9 per ton is  what might be looked for. With the  present mining and milling costs, $7.50  per ton, a total yearly net profit of  ��6480 is set as the limit of the present  plant.  By doubling the capacity of the mill  to 3600 tons per month, 40 stamps, and  calculating the cost of production as it  now stands, the company should show  an annual profit of 10 per cent upon a  capital of ��120,000, at which figure the  company was floated. On the larger  output, however, the "cost of mining  would be greatly.reduced, and although  it would be impossible to state exactly  the cost .of mining on the basis,of 3600  tons per month; the engineers expressed  the opinion that when, developments  necessary to carry on this proposed output are completed, the ore could be  mined for $4.50 or $5 per ton. Allowing  for mining .and milling - $6 per ton,  which would be ample on a basis of  3000 tons per month, there should be a  profit of ��9000 per month, or approxi-  ; mately ��21,000, representing 18 pier  cent upon a capital of ��120,000.  The scheme of development recommended by the engineer in charge is to  sink a shaft from No. 4-level on the  Poorman vein, near thei intersection of  the vein by the cross-cut; to increase  the mill from 20 to 40 heads; to alter  the. position of cthe aerial ropeway so  as to save'extra handlings of the Poor-  man ore. At present the ropeway runs  from the Granite to the mill, and Poor-  man ore; is brought by -..tram wagons  from the .Poorman bins, a "distance of  2200 feet, =to the;-. ropeway, where it is  again loaded into the buckets to be conveyed to the mill. The engineer also  includes in his scheme the continuation  of the main cross-cut "(No.; 4) tunnel in  the Poorman in order to intersect the  Greenhornvein, and one other vein that  is known to exist between the Poor-  man and Granite veins, and to get a  depth of 500, feet ,on . the. .Gr.anite vein  below the' White tunnel. This long  cross-cut "tunnel would-be approxi-  mately;1200 feet and would cost $10 to  $12 per.foot. In order to complete all  these alterations. and developments  aearly ��12,000 will be required, but the  engineers express themselves as con-  pvinced that as a result of them the  Granite Mines could be put upon a footing, which would prove.them to be of  great value.. This proposed expenditure  provides for a larger compressor capable of supplying eight or nine drills.  On the other properties in the Granite  Mines holding the engineers dismiss the  Royal Canadian group in a few lines.  The work done upon it has shown the  ledge to be about 14 inches wide and  'he average assays "of the ore are something lower than $4 to the ton, 264 tons  from the dump yielding on a mill test  less than $3 per ton in the clean-up.  Of the Granite the engineers say:  The principal workings on the Granite  or White vein consist of Drummond'-  =3hafti=sunk=to=a=deDth-=of^250-feet-on-  the underlie of the vein, and four levels  driven off north' and south at intervals  of about 50 feet on the vertical. The  total drivage of these is 1400 feet, and  the greatest distance in any level is in  the No. 1. where the vein has been explored for.a distance of 570 feet. Prom  the surface down to No. 1 level the  worked-out ground shows the vein to  have varied from one to four feet, narrowing towards the back of No. 1 level  and splitting at a depth of 75 feet in  the shaft. Beyond the stoping done between No. 1 level and the surface, little  exound has been taken out. In driving  the levels some very rich stringers have  been met.  In the bottom of the No. 4 level north  the vein averages some 20 inches in  width for an unbroken distance of 100  feet, but within 30 feet from the face it  is again split up, and it seems that the  best part of it will be found on the  hanging wall. Within 28 feet from the  shaft in the south level the vein is 1 1-2  feet wide. In levels No. 2 and No. 3  there are no very strong points about  the vein, but there is one bunch of ore  that assays as much as $38 per ton. This  is at the back of No. 9 level. Estimating  as carefully as possible the ore obtainable from the present workings on  this vein, the engineers find approximately 1540 tons. But as they considered that the prospective value of the  mine was undoubtedly from depth they  did not recommend that the ore be returned-from it until such time as the  development proposed was carried out.  The work proposed' was the continuation  of the White tunnel to communicate  with the No. 4 level north in the Granite.  This would drain that part, of the Granite standing above the No. 4 level and  obviate the necessity; for pumping engines, which cost $360 per month to  work. When this tunnel is completed  sinking could be continued in the Drummond shaft for a matter of 150 or 200  feet, proving the vein to this depth and  opening up reserves of ore, while such  payable portions of the vein as are  already opened up could then be worked  at a reduced cost. A further driv&ge of  270 feet will effect this communication,  and the cost of so doing will be probably  $9 per foot, pr $2330. The engineers did  not anticipate that water would be encountered below the No. 4 for at least  200 feet and the cost of sinking would  Capital        -      -      $2,600,000  Rest       ...    $1,850,000  H.

It  says: A new aspect of the: war, which  seems to kindle anew .with the help of  "foreigners, who threaten the frontier,  places the government under the necessity of assuming a different attitude  from that maintained hitherto,and resort to preceedings which it has tried  to avoid. It- has been resolved, firstly,  to suspend the payment of all accounts  for. war materials pending and to limit  the expense to the payment of the armed  forces and administration. Secondly,  to proceed to appropriate all the necessary elements for the feeding, equipment  and mobilization of the army. Thirdly,  to levy forced and voluntary loans according to circumstances and to impose  war contributions in order to meet the  expenses of each department without  depending on the national capital. The  governors are hereby amply authorized  to prpceed in these matters according  to the requirements of circumstances  without the need of approval from the  government and each governor must assume the responsibility in order to save  the situation within his territory.

PEKIN, August 23.���-The delay of the  Chinese plenipotentaries in signing the  protocol is causing some uneasiness in  the foreign communities here, although  the powers do not think that China intends to defy the powers by ultimately  refusing to sign. Indeed they believe  China is anxious to wind up the negotiations rapidly. Decrees reciting the  punishment and suspending the examinations will be issued before the signatures are affixed. Prince Ching at the  request of the empress dowager tele-  exaplied to her verbatim the restrictions as to the importation of arms.  Li Hung Chang having practically conducted all the active negotiations, has  retired into the background, leaving to  prince Ching the responsibility of consummating the work. Earl Li finds himself in the same precarious position he  occupied at the peace negotiations following the war with Japan. The native  press is unanimous in violently denouncing him for what is called his  surrender to the foreigners, and a number of officials have petitioned the emperor to punish him for betraying his  country.

You say, Why? The answer is simple, Because we give these two lines  our undivided attention. We study our samples. We test all of them before placing our orders. So that when we place  an order we are in a position to buy larger, because we know the Tea or Coffee that we have selected will give satisfaction  to nearly all. Then we buy in quantities effecting a saving not only to ourselves, but to the many customers to whom we  have the honor of both pleasing aiid satisfying in the Tea and Coffee line. .  There is no getting over the fact that our Teas and Coffees are without doubt the best that money can buy. But kindly  bear in mind if you are accustomed to drinking cheap Tea or Coffee don't change, because a high priced Tea or Coffee would  taste like so much weeds to you. We guarautee to suit you if you will only give us an idea of the grade of goods you use.  We recommend in all cases our high grade Tea and Coffee.    They are the purest and best.

James Finley, in charge of construction work at the Columbia river, bridge,  near Robson, expects to see trains running over itrjsome time in November.  ��� v .'��������������� -  . The secretary, of the Slocan Miners'  Union writes The Tribune that all existing differences between the management of the Arlington mine and the men  have been amicably;adjusted.  from this city. His first business will  be to go to the Silver King mine to  count the noses of captain Gifford's  children of school age. To secure a  school it is necessary to produce ten  children of school age. If captain Gifford has not the requisite number of  children he must wait for his school,  as in matters of this kind "the department requires the delivery of the goods  before the school is granted The request  of the men employed at the Ymir mine  for a school will also receive the attention of inspector Wilson. At the Ymir  mill a number of the married men are  obliged to live in the town in order to  secure school advantages for their  children.  The R. M. R. band has decided to  discontinue the street concerts which it  has been giving on Saturday evenings.  The effect of this will be to break the  agreement with the city council, by  which in return for a stated number of  street concerts the band was to receive  a grant of $100. It is said that this decision is the result of internal trouble  in the organization itself, growing out  of the failure of the excursion which the  band held last week, and another reconstruction' of the band is said to be  among the possibilities. The causes of  friction are said to be the "spread  eagle label," the uniforms, and the  bandmaster.

NOW WHILE THE WEATHER IS HOT THE BUSY HOUSEWIFE SHOULD USE  "Mat" Garity is in the city jail awaiting examination as to his sanity. Garity was picked'up on the street as a  disorderly, and from the observations  which have escaped him since his arrest it is thought he is not right in the  head. He tells one rather good story on  McKinnon, the former chief of police.  When taken to: the cells Garity remarked that he hoped that he would  not receive the same treatment as when  arrested by McKinnon. He was asked  what happened him on the former occasion and replied that after locking him  up McKinnon forgot all about him for  two days. -  Henderson 'Brothers of Vancouver,  who are the -largest creditors of the estate of H.

The Miner says the present city  wharf was built in 1894, and that when  built there was a question as to whether  the foot of Ward street would not be a  better location., The city wharf was  built in the spring of 1891,. and there-  was no question raised at that time  as to its location. If there is a question  now, it. is - raised by the men whose  interests are in having all business centered west of the present business center. It is not likely that the city wharf  will be moved, merely because one member of the present city council favors" it.  -He is not likely ever to be a member  of the council again.

The suggestion has been made that  the directors of the hospital put a turnstile in the fence which they have erected around the hospital so that the old  trail would, be available for pedestrians.  This was one of the best walks in the  city and the hospital directors might  very well meet the request for a turnstile so that the walk would not be  completely closed.  The crews that remain of those  drawn for the next boat club regatta  are putting in some hard training and  some very good' races are in prospect.  The boys are having more or less  trouble . in maintaining their seats in  the new boats and there is some talk  of having them made fast, to prevent  accidents. The critics say that the  trouble is that a number of the boys  do not handle!themselves right in the  boats, but the boys themselves say that  the trouble is occasioned by reason of  the fact that the crews are not well  balanced.  In the ..case of McDonald vs. Botsford  and McQuillan the costs were paid on  Saturday. This was an action in which  the plaintiff, A. A. McDonald as the  owner of the Cristine mineral claim,  ad versed tho defendants in their application for a certificate.of improvements  for the adjoining property. The case  went against him and to secure costs  the defendants issued an execution  against the Cristine mineral claim and  the same was advertised for sale on the  29th instant. McDonald on Saturday  paid the costs amounting to $327, so th**-  sale of the property by the sheriff is off.  D.

In speaking of the  miners' strike at Rossland Mr., MaeNeill  said that the general;opinion in Rossland was that the retirement of Whittaker Wright from the Le Roi directorate would have a far reaching effect on  the strike situation. The retirement of  Whittaker Wright was taken to mean  a victory for ex-governor Mackintosh  arid the opinion that it would be followed by a complete change was shared  by the London press. A change in the  management of the company certainly  ^would=have=a=good=effect=inJ-ringing=  about a settlement of the strike.  Great Deal of Woik Being Done.  Everything seems to be moving along  fairly well in the Slocan. Around Slocan City times were never better. William Koch, who has the contract for  handling the Arlington ore, will be kept  pretty busy for the next four months.  The big contract of 1000 tons per month  will run until Jaunary 1st, and, as his  stock is all employed, he will have to  purchase additional outfit. There is a  great deal of work being done in the  camp. Around Sandon, the Goodenough  has again become a shipper, a car of  high-grade ore being billed to the Trail  smelter last week.
