WEDNESDAY' MORNING,  OCTOBER  23,   1901  DAILY EDITION  INCALCULABLE DANGER TO  THE EMPIRE.  ���SOUTH AFRICAN WAR AND ITS  IMMENSE EXPENSE CAUSES  PUBLIC  ALARM.  LONDON, October 22.���In any country  whoso constitutional traditions were  less deeply rooted than Britain's what  is now transpiring here would be a certain prelude to revolution. Evidences  are accumulating on all hands of a gre__  wave of public alarm at the incalculable  ���danger to the empire arising fiom the  paralysis which has overtaken England  in her attempt to subdue or extern.mate  the Boers. There is fierce public indignation at the inconceivable levity and  ignoiance with which the ontcrprise was  begun and tho criminal stupidity with  which it has been conducted. The opening of the third year's campaign is sig-  jialized by the publication in both the  jingo and. the anti-war press of retrospects of the government's war, the lecord fully justifying the^ gloomiest .apprehensions.  It was first estimated that the co_t of  the war would be $50,000,000, with a held  foice of 47,000 men, which parliament  was assured would complete the conquest of the republics in three months.  Toda., .when prospect of conquest was  never less certain, it has cost $700,000-  O00, besides 18,000 lives, the aggregate  ,of casualties tfeing 75,000.    Since lord  Robei ts declaied the war o\er, on the  eve of the geneial election last Scplem-  _bei, it1 has cost $360,000,000 m money,  * 8000 lives and   27,000   other casualties  Paul Kiuger's   historic   pledge   to   the  world   that  the   pi ice  England   would  have to  pay  would   stagger   humanity  'is now   on   everybody's   lips.    Il-.was  jeered at when originally, published in  'i.ho   newspapers,   but   at   the   height  of this present supreme) crisis the public  is dismayed by the intemperate, undic-  ' ciplmed outburst against .critics by. general Bulleirdemonstia'ting the demoial-  'zation which has been-'produced m'the  ai_ay by the stress of this ignominious  - can;paign.'-.Meantime the, ministers aie  doing* nothing���or worse'.  Wai   secretary Brodeiick, broken by  the combined   weight  of   domestic  be-  leavemetft and the oppiessive responsibilities of the post he was never fitted  to occupy, feebly'attempts to stem the  swelling torrent of public obloquy by,,  throwing tbo responsibility on the gen-^  orals     The proclaiming of martial law  thioiighout Cape Colony is the crowning  blunder   of   the   Butish   policy.    It   is  "known   here   that   the   Cape   premiei  warned both the impenal  government  -'iid lord Kitchener that   it   inevitably  -would mean tho ultimate loss of South  A.-rica,  but tbe government gave lore  kitchener absolute discretion,  and he,  .rendered reckless  by  the  hopeless en-  ���t-.ng.len.ents of the desperate situation,  iiefuw.d to listen to reason and insisted  (on having his will obeyed.

Basly,  - socialist, for a day's work of 8 hours for  miners and a pension of two francs' pei  ��day after 25 years ot work. The motion  ���was rejected by 321 to 251 votes. M  IBasly's motion was intended to test the  spirit of the chamber on tho question  of the mineis' demands. If. Waldec.  Rousseau vigorously repeated that he  would not concede the demands l eferred  tc Tho constituents of M. Basly ar��-  ehicfly minors, belonging to the Pas de  Culas region.  PARIS,    October    22.- During    the  comse of Lis remarks in the chamber  of deputies trday, regarding the question  of  miters'  wpges and  horns,  M  Waldeck Rousseau said that tho government had alieady anno'inccd that it .va'  oposed tc fixing a minimum wage, but  vjis disposed to con time its examination of the question of miners' pensions  and see if it cculd not incoipoiate it  in   the   general   question   of   pensions  As to the eight hours work per day, tht  go. crximcnt  was   desirous   of  amelior-  .ating ^conditions <?. eryv here latoi, but  it was jjnpossibte'to settle hastily such  a,   quesiJon   without  injuring   national  production.

E*trl Russell Released From Prison  LONDON, October -22 ���TSarl Russeli  tlris morning finished the three months'  ���sentence ��� of imprisonment in Holloway  .iail. imposed upon him by the house of  lords for bigamy, and was immediately  released. There were few onlookers  when the earl,- unaccompanied, came  Sfirib from the jail and jumped into a  closed carriage. He appeared in excellent health and spirits, but declined to  say anything as to his plans. When  asked ho.v he stood his imprisonment  he said he could not complain of the  treatment by the governor and, wardens  of tho gaol, and smilingly added that  the only thing that did really annoy  him he dici not care to mention. Being  pressed, he answei ed , laconically:  "Bugs " The earl left the city at once  and went to Brighton, where Mollie  Cook or Somerville, for marrying whom  he was., charged with bigamy, has been  residing for some time...

LOUISVILLE,   October   22. ��� Henry  Watterson,' editor of the Courier-Journal, who led the bolt against Bryan m  1896 and who is now engaged m a controversy with the Nebraska man, has announced himself as a candidate for governor of Kentucky in 1903.    For some  time Mi. Watterson has been busily'engaged in trying to heal the breach between the disrupted factions of the Democratic party,   ln Kentucky he has been  completely,successtul.   The first notice  of his proposed candidacy was made this  afternoon in the Evening Post.--It said:  "The most inteiestiiig political event  of the last few weeks is the announcement by Henry Watterson of his candidacy for the Demociatic nomination  for  governor.   During   the* past  week  .Mr.  Watteibon  has told  a number of  gentlemen in this city that he is already  a candidate for the nqmination before  the noxt Demociatic convention, and has  solicited their support.   So far his canvass has been much in the natuie of a  still hunt, and it was doubtless intended  to keep it a secret for some time to  come.    The friends of other aspirants  for   the   governorship  wero  not  slow,  however, ot hearing of the work being  done in this city to pave the way for Mr.  Watterson'? candidacy, and, upon making mquries, haye learned that Mr, Wat,-  terson   is   an   avowed   candidate    Not  only is Mr, Watteison a candidate for  governor at the piosent time, but he is  said to che. ish the most profound ambitions foi tutnrp prcfei ment.  He new" desires to be tbe candidate of the Democratic party for president in 1904, and  behoves that if he can carry Kentucky  in 1903 he will put himself in line for  the nomination for president one year  later.   With this-in view he is doing all  in his power to undermine the power of  Mr. Bryan in tho party, and at the same  time to ingratiate himself witli the: men  in this state whom he has opposed in  the past.   He is working hard to. induce  the.silver Democrats of.the state to forget the past arid is holding out the olive  branch to the business men of Louisville."

WASHINGTON, , October '22.���Nearly  a billion and a quarter dollars is the  enormous 'sum of money .which th3  United States treasury, has now in its  possession. This is an aggregate of  wealth never before equaled in the history of this or any other country. The  exact total of the amount held by the  treasury-is-$l,190,225,224."r=Of_this_sunr  $796,547,089 is held asra trust. fund for  the redemption of outstanding notes  and certificates; the gold coin and bullion amounting to, 4150,000,000' constitutes the regular reserve'fund; there is  gold coin and bullion in the general  fund to the amount of $73,399,276, or a  total of $145,549,038/ representing ..11  sorts of available notes and coin, and  $110,143,772 in national bank depositories. Included in this great govern meital  wealth'are $534,000,000 Jn gold and $193,-  000,000 in silver, a part of each being  bullion and the remainder coin. The  subsidiary sil. er coin held by tho treas-  uiy amounts to ^8,785,875. Fractional  currency and minor' coin aggregates  moie than $482,000.  But a comparatively small portion of  this colossal fortune is contained in the  tieasury department vaults heie. For  business and accounting purposes the  treasury is held to consist of the de-  paitment in Washington, the nine s>ub-  tieasuries in the large cities, the mints  and assay offices and the national banks  designated as depositories. New York is  the great financial center, and a large  portion of the government's wealth is  held there, warrants being issued from  the treasurer here for its disposition.The  material bulk of all the "government's  resources is contained In the sub-treasuries at New York, Boston, and Philadelphia. The new bullion is nearly all  in the mints and assay offices. As a  matter of fact there Js not today more  than $3,000,000 of gold, either of coin  or bullion, in the treasury department  heie The chief item of money here .s  something like 150,000,000 silver dollar .  The remainder of the silver is in the  sub-treasuries and mints. The $150,000,-  000 in- silver * here in the: department  weighs 8,887,500 pounds. The coin is  tied up in bags and corded like wood in  the big steel vaults'. *..   .  Under the... government's ..system ��f  recognizing till the sub-treasurios, assay pfflces, etc., as'parts of'the treasury itself, no clumsy problems of transportation arise. Nov.; a warrant is given  a man or firm to whom the government  desires to pay mpney drawn on the  nearest sub-treasury.: He receives his  money from the funds on deposit at  that point; It would require a train of  14 big freight cars to carry the $534,  United   States   represents   more   than  2,000,0.0 pounds. *   '   , ���      ���    '"  It is computed' by treasury, officials  that at the er*d of this fiscaryear, June  30th next, the���government will have  $70,000,000 left clear alter paying all  running T debts. With this prospective  surplus in sight the noxt congress, may  have a little leeway for larger appropriations, but the River and Harbor  Bill, which failed at the last session,  will be'enacted this winter ''and' will  carry at least $60,000,000, enough practically to wip^ out the surplus. AU" the  financial and tariff experts., in . Doth  branches of congress are already busy  seeking to evolve as scheme by, which  the. enormous sums of money locked up  >by the government tcan be put into circulation. At the same time it is hoped  to reduce taxation so that "all'the peo-  people' may be benefited by lower rates.  ,<It is now held by,treasury, department  officials that nothing further can be  done to relieve financial stringency by  putting accumulated funds into circulation. Some relief might be. had through  increasing the number of national  banks designated as government,depositories, but it is not intended to 'make  any addition at this time? 1 "' '        '  Representative Fowler of New Jersey,  has a plan to.retire,some.of .the outstanding   greenbacks   and , thus   bring  more  money  into  circulation.'

It was about 3 30 o'clock, just  after the first act of "Tennessee's* Pai d-  ner.'^when the cry of "Fire" was raised.  Women and children mado a rush for  the dooi.   The panic seized the gallery.  Meanwhile those who had retained their  presence of mind endeavoied to stop the  mad rush for the doors.   The ushers and  theater attaches acted  .vith great coolness.   The orchestra played and Charles  T   Bates, a member of the stock company,   danced    This   was  effective  in  quieting those nearest the stage.   At the  point where the stairs come down from  the gallery the two  mad   ciowds   met.  The weaker people were soon knocked  down and trampled under foot, but the  crowd went on  pell mell   through   the  doors and rolled down >He long flight of  stairs.   Every patrol wagon and ambulance in the city was soon engaged in  conveying the most seriously injured to  tho hospitals or their homes.   The play  was finished.    Clarenco Meffert, an at-  tachee of the theater closed the wide exit  doors as tho rush began.   He called a  number of men and by main force held  the.crowd back.   But for this hundreds  might have been' injuied.    Just as the  doors were closed,   Mrs.   O    W.   Blunt  pitched her one year old child through  the exit to a policeman..  He caught it  in his arms, but it slipped to the floor,  sustaining,  however, no serious injury  except   slight   bruises.   There   was   no  damage by fire.  ' England's Tobacco War  ; NEW YORK, October 22.���The London correspondent of the Herald cables  the following additional details concerning the tobacco war in Great Britain. Developments are still awaited in  the struggle, whicli -seems pending bo���  000,000'in gold which the government    tweeh  English  and  American  tobac/.o  li^s >yailable. Thei gold owned by. tha ' rikanufacturers for supremacy'ia trade.  J. B. Duke, leader of the American combination, .who is at present'in Liverpool,  is reported to have said that he would  capture the Biitish trade within the  next four years or less. This challenge  has been accepted by the foremost British manufacturers, ,who are mustering  their1 forces as quickly 'as, possible.  Since' the list of firms who have banded  themselves togetfier^to .fight the _ American invasion was published the English combination have received several  additional, supporters. Other". firms are  expected to ���join in when" the stiuggle  has ^commenced in real earnest For  the present both sides appear to be playing a waiting game. The ^American,invaders made a move when>they granted  a'^concession to retail tobacco firms, encouraging* them to stoc!_5uRSwith their  brands, but'jEngJish manufacturers1* regard It merely as a Jfeint;;|?|f -   .    .J  CASE OF H-ANLYlHi-Jf  .-j.  _��0,l. ^(.v      ���!���������!       ���  _     ���i ���_^--*^^;^*^y..^*Vi^   rK.        n  Z t.

In, his. judgment* Mr. Justice Irving'says in part:|.�� ��� y ',  1 'IThe framework of ttii^'case^is very  , simple. On the 29th >Noven_ber.<l897, the  "Native SilVer"*- claini ''was' lo-iated* by  lone Cooper for and in'th'e name of one  (Halpin,   who   at  once, s 2nd ''December,  {1897,  conveyed/ one- moiety t to1. Cooper  'and the other moiety to ono Haller. Tha  plaintiff, 19th July, 1900,.purchased Holler's half interest, and on the 31st Aug-  'ust, 1900, obtained 'and/recorded a cet-  , tificate of work in respcct-rof,-t_ie"said  jClaim. Two certificates,inlreepeet of the  [said "claim had ,been 'obtained, by Hal-  tier vprior to. the sale*'totIhe'-Jplaintia.  lThese certificates were*reeorded on*?tho  ,7th Octoler, 1898, and 15th November,  '1899-       ^\        '      ,., k.7*   i'f.t  * ,  I "On the 25th of April, .1900;.the defend-'  [ant, knowing fullj> tha'-position- of "af-.  -fairs/ decided   to   and fedi'd , jump /the  'claim, relocating it as-ftfi..'"Arlington  'No. 1--Frsctirn." The defendant/began  , work "at  once, 'and  obtained?'five cer-  .tlficates of work  The datejof the carl-  Host recc:ded being lOtti^'August/ 190'��,  jand the other, four weretfecouled in October, and applied ior^a;. crown giant,  whereupon the plairiti_f,:?vi;ho obtained "H  Ithird--certificate," 8th fAugubt,    1900,  . brought-the-present .ud\��'f_ve- claim ., ��� \  ,���By section 23 "it is provided 'as^fol-'  lows: "Upon any dispute as to the tit" .  'of any mineial; claim, no  nregularity  happening-previous to, the date of thi-  record "of iho  lpst certificate  of woi'i  shall affect tho tijlt thereto, and it shall  be assumed that up to that date the  title of tho^ claim was< perfect, except  upon suit by the attorney-general based  upon fraud."   ,  Looking- at the section, and the simple  facts above set out, the first thing that  strikes one is that both parties having  obtained cert'ficates of work aro equally  entitled to claim against the other b^iii-  fit of the section. That, of course,'' makes  the section nonsensical ���-  Then the first qeufrtion is to determine  wliich of the two is the person who.ii  ceitificate is t.  rrevail. To answer that  one must look at the fact�� and ask oneself, how' did the dispute arise   Theie  can  b<*- cily one answer.  The dispute  arose, or was brought into existence by  the-deiendant-plaL ting his'RtakpTin-the"  land   occupied 'by' the   plaintiff.    Ihe  plaintiff then it is whose title is to be  deemed perfect if section 2S covers the  inegulaiities  which  the defendant alleges made the ' Native ,Silver" an illegal clain  The lrrcgularMies complained of ire  1. That tho plaintiff is locating and recording the Native Silver described his  loeatier lino betveen No. 1 and No. 2  as   running   in   an   easterly   diioction,  whereas ir truth and in fact It was very  rcarlv duo norfh. I do not think that it  can-be denied that this is a veiy soilou.  emission   to   comply  with   the   statute,  which requires the locator to stake tiie  approximate compass bearing  2 The second point is that one or  more of the free miner's licenses under  whicl- the plaii.tifl derived his title wa��  lssi ed by a perr.on without proper authority  ' 3. That the locator of the Native Silver did not in fa"t find mineral in place,  and  4 That the native Silver location was  a location over an abandoned claim by  the samo pecplo, and was illegal undti  section 32.  ' As to the point rcised. (1) As to thr  approximate compare bearing, the tri ii  judge as ho gave judgment for the plain  tiff, must havo been satisfied that it did  not ln fact mis-lead iP. 1G9.) This point  cannot be in doubt, as it was only at th"  trial that the defendant raised the question. Ha.ing rogaid to the plan annexed  to the location affidavit, and tho description of the ground as a "relocation  of Arlington Fi actional claim, lying bo  tween the "Ailingtcn" and "Builin.  ton,' from whicli���and not from tho  posts���the defendant got his information. I think it was not calculated to  mislead, at or,y rate, section 2S would  cure that irregularity.  2. The contention as to free miner's  certificate being irregularly issued it-  set at rest by the Mineral Act.  3. The positive evidence of tho find  ing of mineral in place is sufficient  (see Cooper's affidavit). His stntemont,  that he was satisfied _hat it wis mi'i-  eral in place. (Q. and A. 739 and nailer's evidence, Q. and A. 149-152). There  was no cross-examination of Cooper or  Haller as to lhese.  And the fourth would be answeied  by section 28, which would. c*\cuse the  failure, ty- comply -vylth the requirements  of section 32.

I ;Mayor FletcherMs credited with mak-^
ing the following statement in public*:'
"The best clags of people in.Nelson are
" in favor of the proposed deal with the
" power company."   The majority of .the
people .of Nelson   must   belong   to the
"worst class'.' then, for a large majority'
of-the people of Nelson,are opposed to
the Pletcher-Selous   spoliation   scheme,"
under which-the city   closes   down   its:
power station, which costs less than $250
a month to operate, in order that the-
West Kootenay-Power   &   Light   Com-"
pany, Limited, of Rossland may sell the
city power at "a cost of $1000 a month."
The mayor evidently made a mistake;*
he probably intended to say, the "worst
class" in Nelson favor the deal that he'
and alderman Selous are engineering.   7
Mayor Fletcher wants to be interviewed; and he wapts to be interviewed
so bad that he has the Interview in
his pocket nicely typewritten. He is in-
doubts as to whether he should take it
to The Tribune or to The Miner. He |
doesn't like The Miner any more than he
likes The Tribune, for both are oppos?
ing his scheme of giving the cream of
the electric lighting business to the
West Kootenay Power & Light Com-'
Dany. We' timidly suggest that the
mayor should take his little interview to
the editor of The Economist, if it is on
the electric light question; but if it is
on the question of horses, either The
Miner or The Tribune might find space
for it on a third page.

And 'yrhenever. you hear a voice  ithat is'clear?anfl distinct?and yet withal  how, it ip becaii.se the; ftUesj; .tone, is employed..* '  And to conic back then to our subject,  ^������and to the lesson of this little discourse,  ���l*it is this:   Do not for one moment imar  figine you are giving your children a good  editor and manager being of the west  ,Thiity-iwo ytars ago its lctning editor,  Chailes C. Goodwin, was writing editorials for the Inland Empiic, a daily  newspapei at Hamilton, Nevada, and  patriotic orations in blank vcise for  Fourth of July celebrations. Few men  on tho Coast arc moro gifted than  "judge" Goodwin, and none have been  truei to their principles. On retiring  Irom the Tribune, its editor says:  "The foregoing  explains   itself.   The  change has come.   It is immediato and  ladical.   The men who have been in control of The Tribune for the past nineteen years, in giving up their places, arc  glad to feel that the trust they have held  goes into entirely   competent   hands���  hands which supply full promise that the  much-loved journal will advance and fll  its place in the front of the progress of  this great state.    There   13   not   much  moreJto   say,   except   that  no  self-reproaches are mingled with this parting.  With the lights that have been given  thom, the old managers have performed  their *}Vprk with  such  ability as they  could command, and without  ever   deviating from wh'_s_  they believed their  duty.   The Tribuno has never for money  published anything that ought not to  have been published,  it has nevej' fpr  money withheld anything from publication that ought not to nave been withheld.   It has neyor truckled to any man  or power.   There is no claim fpr special  credit for thi., because those in qhaigc  have been conscious aU the time that  there are no concealments in a newspaper; the thoughts  behind   tho   pens  shino ��� out through the types, and. the.  page had to be eleanto.hold the splendid friends whose loyal support bas been  $he go. .ifest honor that.any newspaper;  .c'o.ujd reeeiye,   Those friends have made  ���Thb 'Tribune -pe>sslVi9 for two : decades,  for, it had no other .(jepegjloijee-   It has  ���had to be self-suppprfin'g in. .oj-dur. tb  live.   Those friends never jailed .it.   In  tija days of the panic, and the: hard times  The Trihune, through them, was the only  j Criminologists say "t^at" the greatest,  terror that afflicts that, fraction of hu-(  'inanity, suffeiing from an uneasy, con-5  science is not dieadof tho police, by any1  means, nor awe of any o��her. acknowl->  edged enemy4 of law defiers. V/hat tne{  criminal dreads is sleep. Sleep is, it ap-  jpears the friend1 of the rigntecus only.  >To the men with the knowlcdge.of [dark  i i ���< *���    '      ..  deeds stored within them sleep is the  most treacherousiof foes.   The countless,  poems that have been written-in praise  'of it veiy naturally appear as so much-  cold-blooded mockery to such as are mj  hourly dread of   betiaying   themselves.  under its influence    An untold number1  of (cumes have been confessed by iheir  peipctrators during sleep. Js it jiny-won^  ~der"that-those conscious^-.f"irregularis  ties of conduct piefQi to remain awake'  It was recently thr-t a *. cl! known New  Yoik detective happened to be���traveling  in a sleeping' car.' The detective, who  chanced to be occupying a ceitain Iowei  berth, heard-the sleeper above him bmst  forth into *a'long-winded confession regarding several daring jewel lobborios"  'wherein he had taken pait    Much impressed tho official kept an eye on him.  Further inquiries proved that the confession had been an oxm-i. record of what  had takon place.  Many 'years ago a common lodging-  house was the scene of a sleeping criminal's confession. The room was_occu-  pied by himself and one other���a young  sailor. While the sailor was lying awake  ho suddenly .heard a curious and ghastly  laugh Issue from his room companion's  lips. Tho laugh was followed by a long,  and rambling description of a murder  he had committed, horrible in its details. The sailor crept downstairs and  Informed the landlord of what had.oq-  curred. The latter at once summoned a  policeman, who recognized the sleeper  as the man ."wanted" for the ciime in  question. At the trial which followed  he was found guilty cvnd sentenced to  death." As. for the sailor, he, came in  for a considerable reward. ���  ' Perhaps the entire history of crime  contains no mor(e dramatic episode-than  that'which'occurred s^ome years ago in  a ^ Prussian township/'The husband <o��  ascertain attractive^young 'woman had  vanished'"mysteriously from his, home?  and all attempt to trace his whereabouts"  failed i completely. Ivleanwhile a ,neigh-  bor/called Schmidt, who had been' de-;;  votedjto the-young wife before-her marriage-reappeared on tne scene* and paid  her assiduouslattentions. So successfully  did he- press his suit that within a year  of ihis'crival's disappearance the'woman  consented-.ojmarry him,.and they, weret,  united-at-the parish*church.aNow comes'  the sequel. On the second night follow-*  I  sleeping foim beside her, and a moment  later ^the man, leapt nfrom;his,bed and  f declared ' fh'at"he" had killed ttie missing .husband, jan^d had buried i thei'body  in a'neighboring w;ood.

Morrison & Caldwell  * In the case bf Waterland vs. .the .City  of Greenwood, the appeal hook was settled by the register yesterday, W. A.  Macdonald appearing for the respondent;  and R. S. Lennie for the appellants.  This case arose out'of.the action'of the  city of Greenwood ir damming . up,  Boundary creek, .whereby the plaintiff's  hotel was, flooded. The case was tried-  before Mr. Justice .Walkem and a specJ*  ial jury in December lost, when a verdict of ?3000 and costs was secured by  plaintiff. From this the city. of Greenwood is' appealing ond the appeal will  ,be beard at the sittirgs of the full court  at Vancouver in November.  '��The,city_of Nelson has decided to on-_  Tforce a strict quarantine aeainst Bonner's Ferry. As. intimated in The-Tribune a few days ago smallpox broke out  in Bonne's Ferry several days ago. Owing to tha laxity of the health authorities, the disease had every chance to  spread throughout the entire town. The  local health authorities have now been  informed that 25 per cent of the entire  population is down with the disease  and the condition i_< so serious that an  effort will be made to have a duly qualified medical practltior.er stationed ,*ai_  the.boundary, in addition to the ordinary health officer, in order to prevent  tho introduction of the disease into  Nelsou.

W. H. Aldridge, of*the Trail smelter,  was  in  Nelson yesterday on  business  connected   with   the   refinery   project.  Mr.   Aldrige   had   an   interview   with  mayor Fletcher and with several of the  men connected with the mines of the  Nelson and  Slocan district.  From the  remarks dropped by him it is inferred  that the chief difficulty contemplated by  the .'Canadian Pacific Railway Company  in the matter of the operation of the refinery is the supply of ores. It i3 not  suggested' that  the  necessary tonnage  is not in the country, but the men who  control it do not appear to be anv too  favorably inclined toward the refinery  project and so far have not evinced any  desiro to contract for the delivery of  .heir ores to the Canadiar smelter and  refinery. It is said,the mining men resident in Nelson are new r-11 ln line and  that a meting of the Mine Owner's Association  will  be called with as lit.Ie  delay as possible with a view to securing the guaraileed tonnage nece.sary.  The tonnage is the lirst consideration  of the men behind the refin.ry schemo,  and any bonus which may bo offered by  rival bidders for the refinery will be a  secondary matter. Nelson's chances for  securing the refinery are said to be excellent,   but  everything  depends  upon  tho willingness '.of the managers of the  producing mine,   to treat the new industry fairly and not play it against  the smelter trust for temporary competitive lates.  Although thero can be  very little doubt but that the requisite  tonnage would, offer in the event ot the  refinery being established Iho promot-  Total    ?321 50  Profit    542 79,  ' In addition to the profit in money,  .47 passes were given to the performers,  the press, and tbe friends of the performers.        Should Send Them to McDonald.  A man named Keeble, who is a  farmer in North Dakota, has been over'  in .the Similkamen country in quest of  mines. His quest has been successful. On  his return to Nelson he was asked if  be would pay miners tho standard rate  of wages, ?3.50 a day. His answer was:  "Not much! You should see the boys  back in Dakota driving pegs for the  guy ropes of a steam thresher. I tell  you what those fellows would be all  right pounding steel, and they will work  for a dollar a day. Next spring I am  coming back here, and will bring four  of them along with me, and I will develop that mine, even if it costs me  ?1000."
