 ESTABLISHED  1892  MONDAY MORNING,  NOVEMBER  11,  1901  DAILY EDITION  A TAME AFFAIR  ,....  LITTLE INTEREST IN LORD  MAYOR'S BANQUET.  FORD'S WEEKLY REVIEW OF ENGLISH AND CONTINENTAL  HAPPENINGS.  NEW YORK, November 10.��� The  London correspondent ��� of the New York  Tribune, T. N. Ford, cahles as follows:  Tho lord mayor's banquet at the .Guild  Hall last night was a brilliant assemblage of glittering uniforms, with an air  of forced gayety and an undertone of  discontent and pessimism. Tlie king's  health Avas drunk with unwonted fervor, since it was his birthday libation,  tho prince of Wales received his flrst  bumper with signs of heartiness and appreciation of his services to the empire,  and the prime minister and other guests  of honor were greeted with rounds of  aiTaluse. There was a ghoul at the  feast ai:d it could not be exercised. Lord  Salisbury, was optimistic in a perfunctory way and spoke with his usual air  ���of distinction and intellectual pre-emi-  i.ence. He said-nothing, that a politician of ordinary caliber might-not .have  said. There were no epigrams, no passago of grim pardonic humor and no evidences that the prime minister had a  more, comprehensive knowledge of the  situation than his huuioiest auditor. It  'was a dull speech, delivered languidly,  and studded with commonplace phrasing. There were adroit-references to the  Jndiaii mutinyJaiut the Bosnian- insurrection, illustrating the difficulty in the  way of irregular warfare and there were  consolatory reflections on the unbroken  peace- of Europe and the formidable  attitude of the. powers during the prolonged struggle. Therp was also a clear  and emphatic declaration that when the  English people had made up their minds  thnt a common course of conduct was  duty nothing would deter them froni  cai rying; it." out with dogged persist-  ,'fii ee.arid- inflexible, courage, to the end.*  it was not, however, the bracing," invigorating speech which Pitt would have  made in a similar . connection. There  was no inspiration in-itfor the nation  "whrch.had- made- tremendous sacrifices  and was not��� convinced"'*';that the ministers were equal to the suprcnie occasion.  It was the speech of a weary Titan  "playing with illusions of political fatalism.  MAYORALTY ELECTIONS.  Tho mayoralty    elections    yesterday  ���w <?re conducted with t.he usual decorum  anj apathy.   Nearly all of the. tw.urty-  eieht ��� mayors of   the   metropolis   were  chosen: without   contest,' the   dukes   of  Norfolk and'Bedford- retiring from municipal politics, and candidates from the  populous boroughs being selected after  friendly consultations among the coim-  cilmen.   The lord mayor of this city was  elected as a rich banker who could en-  ��� dure the strain of. the. expense of constant entertaining at the Mansion Housa  ^duHng^cor"oimtion~year*:--and-sir-Toseph=  'Dirasdalc will be rewarded with a peerage at the close of his year of .office.  .Provincial   mayors   have   been   chosen  throughout England and Wales with few  contests,   their  functions  being mainly  ornamental, the municipal councils being tho. real strongholds of the executive administration.  GLASGOW'S EXHIBITION.  Tho Glasgow international exhibition  ���closed last night after a remarkable record of financial success. The aggregate  ���attendance has been nearly double that  'of previous exhibitions and the gross  receipts were largely in excess of those  of ISSS. There will bo a handsome surplus at the disposal of the town corporation when all expenses have been met  'There has been no sacrifice of Scotch  principles, for the gates have been  (closed every Sunday. The business  nnanagement has been excellent and the  rmost progressive municipality of th3  United Kingdom has profited in many  ���ways by.its enterprise. One secret of  its financial success has been the pains  taken to make Glasgow the meeting  place of scores of conventions and representative bodies during the summer  and autumn.  END OF A LONG' FAST.  Madame Christiania completed last  -night her 30-day fast at tho Aquarium  without suffering effects more serious  than the loss of twenty-six pounds in  weight and a temporary depletion- of  -strength.   * Pulse   and   temperature   re-  ��� maineel nearly normal at the close of  the fast. Shfi intends going to New  York after a brief holiday and breaking  ���Tanner's record.  KING'S BIRTHDAY.  'The king's own birthday today is cb-  ���served more quietly, flags being run up  ever tho p.ublic offices and salutes and  illuminations being ordered in Downing  -street for the evening. Thc king himself has seemed anxious to differentiate  "his own birthday from that, of queen  Victoria and has not claimed an equality  in national honors. This sf;lf-constraint  is itself a royal tribute to the memory  ��� of Victoria. The celebrations at Sand-  ringham and Windsor wero modestly  ���ordered and the birthdayhonors bestowed with a lavish hand are the principal  record of tho day. Tho new title for the  heir to the throne, has been awarded at  the close of an imperial mission conducted with tact and discretion. The  ���other decorations and honors mainly fall  to public  servants  who  have  rightly  earned them like tho duke of Bucclouch,  sir Harry Johnston, Robert Anderson,  the lord mayor, and Clinton Dawkins.  Otherwise the king's birthday is not obtrusively made an occasion for the display of personal loyalty and in London  is overshadowed by the mummery of tho  lord mayor's show .and the oratory at  the Guild Hall banquet. Today's procession is markedly in contrast with last  week's stately reception of the heir to  the throne. 3t is a burlesque carnival  with a motley cavalcade and incongruous reproductions in tinsel of the splendors of rnediaevalism.  FRANCE'S DIPLOMATIC STROKE.  The fog has lifted from continental  affairs. Mitylene is no longer tho center  of disturbance, since the sultan has been  coerced more rapidly than had been considered likely by a, naval demonstration.  Now that the affair is virtually ended  the English press preceives the great  gain in prestige mado by the French  government in the vigorous management  oi diplomacy and naval armaments and  the importance of the moral support derived from the dual alliance. France has  reasserted a protectorate over the sultan's Reman Catholic subjects oand  strengthened her position materially in  the near east. This is tho English view  frankly expressed and the German emperor is credited with sagacity in remaining* in the background and not. offering tc interfere. The Liberal followers of Gladstone naturally poiut the  moral that the Armenian .atrocities  would have been punished if not prevented by an energetic demonstration by  a British fleet in the Mediterranean. The  eastern question involves a complex  system of checks and balances which  wculd be disordered by a sudden infringement of any new force. What has  happened in this instance has received  tho full approval of the powers in advance. Not only Russia, but all the  powers understand how far Franc  would-go and M. Delcasse was assured  that no offense would be taken in any  quarter. The equilibrium of the European concert has not been disturbed and  no redistribution of forces has been-required. The chief result produced is the  increased importance of France in af-  f ai rs i ft th e nea r east; i n which the Ger- :*.  man er. pernr alone has. taken any interest in recent yenvs-y___  A POLITIGAFMOUNTEBAh'K  One of Smith Curtis's Lies Nailed.    .  S-V_ith Curtis of Rossla.nd, ,'M. P. P.;  has been airing his views at Phoenix and  other points in the -Boundary. As is  -usual with Mr. Curtis,-he takes--iipon  himself the credit, for doing things .that  others did, and"attempts to show that  other members are' inconsistent on  the question of redistribution. The Tribune believes Smith Curtis to be not  only a political demagogue, but a  malicious political "knocker," using the  word "knocker" in the same sense as it  is used in mining. :     *  In an interview with the Phoenix  Pioneer; the member for Rossland  riding is reported as saying: "Tha first  thing to be done when the government  meets, no matter;who is in power, is redistribution. At the last session,, as the  reports will show, I fought for,this continually, and it could have been had if  the government had been in earnest  about the matter. 'Mr. Houston of Nelson, who is now writing in such good  shape for this reform, was" one of the  members who voted against taking up  the^redistribution=question=at=the=last=  session."  The journals of the legislative assembly show that a resolution re the redistribution of seats and electoral districts  was moved by J. C. Brown of New Westminster and seconded by W. B. B. Mclnnes of Nanaimo, and that it was defeated on Thursday. August 23rd, 1900,  by the following vote.  Yeas���Mclnnes, Gilmour, Stables, E.  C. Smith, Oliver.

The speaker, Mr. Booth, in the  chair���1.  The above clearly shows that Mr,  Brown of New Westminster, and not  Mr. Curtis of Rossland, is entitled to the  credit of introducing the question in the  house in 1890, and that Mr. Brown was  supported by Mr. Houston of Nelson as  well as by Mr. Curtis of Rossland.  The journals of the legislative assembly show that a resolution re the redistribution of seats and electoral districts  was again moved by J. C. Brown of New  Westminster and again seconded by W.  B. B. Mclnnes of Nanaimo at the session  held in 1891, and that it was on March  14th, 1901, again defeated by the following vote:  Yeas���Mclnnes, Gilmour, Stables, E. C.

Tho   speaker,    Mr.    Booth,    In    the  chair���1  Thc members have thus nad an opportunity on two diffCK_.it occasions to  place themselves on record on the question of redistribution, and on both occasions the question was brought up by  Mr Brown of New Westminster, and not  by Mr. Curtis of Rossland, as he would  have thc people believe. On neither occasion was the question opposed by the  member for Nelson; but, instead, he  voted for it the flrst time and was absent  in Nelson on tho second occasion. .  Now, it is safe to say that Mr. Curtis  will not hire a type-writer to flood tho  different ridings of Kootenay with a  disavowal of his pretentious claims, or a  disclaimer of his statements regarding  thc honesty of purposo of other members of tho legislature irom Kootenay.  That is not the way the member for  Rossland does business: His methods  are just the reverse. According to himself, he is the one Moses that is blazing  trails for the people to follow; hi  is the one member ��� of tho legislative  assembly that is always consistent.  What a political mountebank the member for Rossland is!  Russia's Great Railroad.  ST. PETERSBURG, November. 10.���  Replying to a congratulatory telegram  from tho finance minister, M. De Witte,  announcing the completion of the Siberian railroad, the czar telegraphed as follows: "I thank you sincerely for your  joyful communication. I congratulate  you on the completion within so short a  timo and amid incredible difficulties of  one of the greatest railroad undertakings of the world.".,.M. De Witte's telegram recalls the fact that the czar  turned tho first sod of the. railroad to  Vladivostock May 19th, 1891, and that  on the ariniveisary of. his accession the  lino was completed. The minister adds:  "With the laying of rails a'Jdistar*.ce of  2400 vc-T-'i.s, frcm Transbakal territory  to Vladivostock and Port Arthur, our  enterprise in .Manichuria is practically  though not entirely concluded. Temporary traffic is now possible along tho  whole system and we hope that within  two years it will be opened to permanent regular trafiic.  Jeffries Will Have No Walk-Over  SAN FRANCISCO, November 10.���  Interest in.the Jeffries-Ruhlin fight for  the.championship of the world increases  as the, time for the contest approaches.  Betting has not been heavy as yet and  all the money placed has leen at oddds  on Jeffries, Many pugilistic experts  however, declare that in his admittedly  improved; form Ruhlin will prove a  dai.gerous antagonist and that it will  not; be any easy task for the champion  to maintain his title. Jeffries., who has  beer, training; at Harbin Springs, came  down to Oakland last night and will  do the remainder .of his preliminary  work in the rooms of the Alliance Ciub  and tho clubs of; the city across the  bay. Gus Ruhliii is training at a wayside house near this city. Ruhlin is in  good form and.confident of success. .  WAS A KNOCKER  LOOMIS TAR AND FEATHER  INCIDENT.  HAGGERTY ACCUSED  OP GIVING  CAMP   A   BLACK   EYE   ON  PERSONAL GROUNDS,  Beresford to Enter Politics.     *  -.-LONDON. November 10.���The government's naval policy is soon likely to be  brought prominently and perhaps ' im-.  pleasantlv/tr, public notice, as rear ad-  mil al lord Charles Beresford will shortly  be relieved of his post as second, in command .of the Mediterranean fleet and is  coming to enter parliament at the earliest opportunity. Lord Beresford intends to devote his energies to a [joliti,-  cal career until it comes his turn to command the channel squadron, which has  always been the height of his ambition.  While on duty in tho Mediterranean,  lord Beresford has won every sham battle: in wliich he was engaged.  OLD LAWS MAY BE REVIVED  To Aid Conscription.  LONDON, November 10.���During the  lengthy  cabinet conferences this week  a representative of the Associated Press  learns tho question of reforming the  old ballot laws came up for discussion.  Many of the cabinet ministers wor'}  strongly in favor of putting in practice  this form of conscription for which  certain obsolete laws already, provide  Thus new legislation would be obviated.  War secretary Broderick has caused  guarded feelers on this mailer lo be  circulated in the press. Tor it appears  almost impossible to keep the home  forces up to adequate strength and supply tho necessary reinforcements for  South Africa on the volunteer system  of enlistment alone. Such a strenuous  measure, however. doubtless would  cause a strom of disapproval in Greit  Britain and it will not be enacted unless the war situation becomes graver.  What changes have come over the state  of the country in two years may lie  judged from the fact that the war office  has examined closely, the old ballot  ���laws and it has prepared an elaborate  plan by which they can be s-prung on  the public at a moment's notice.  Celebrated Tayapi Mines Found  TuCSON. Arizona. November 10.���A  Star special from 'Juayamas Mexico,  says: The lost Tayapi mines, celebrated  in Spanish annals as having produced  $SO,000.000 in silver and gold in the  seventeenth century, and described on  Spanish maps as being situated . in  Norwesterr. Mexico about fifty leagues  from the sea. near Dos Pilares, have  been found. As far back as 1859 Robert  L'Aulmie, a celebrated French expert,  declared the locution of Cienteguita, in  the Saburia district, Sonora, to be identical with the lost Tayapi. The Spanish  owners are said to have been murdered  by their Indian slaves near Lhe close of  the* seventeenth century, and it is stated  that about 100 years thereafter no one  was allowed to enter that region. Explorers who, however, recently returned  from Cienteguita report having discovered the old stone prisons, old smelters  and also stupendous works accomplished by the ancients,  Granhy Makes a F.ecord.  GRAND FORKS, November 20.���During the week ending yesterday the  Granby s.r.e!ter treated 40S2 tons of or a,  an aver-rge of 711 tons daily. This  breaks all previous records for any corresponding period. Total treated to dato,  252,179 tons.  LOOMIS,. Washington. November 7.-���  L Special Correspondence of The Tribune.]���The mining camp species of the  "Knocker with his little hammer" received a well-merited punishment last  Friday, at the hands of indignant citizens, ir. the shape of a coat of tar ar;d  feathers. The man who stands today as  the most despicable object in Loomis  and the entire Okanogan country is  James M. Haggerty, ex-newspaper editor and mining company promoter. Yet  to satisfy a personal, spite, real or fancied, toward one man in this community,  against whom he has taken umbrage, he  has, through the columns of the Spokesman-Review, attacked tho industrial interests of.the Okanogan country, especially in this vicinity involving large and  valuable mining enterprises. In the  words of a set of resolutions passed by  the citizens Haggerty's action is. denounced as contemptible, unwarranted  and despicable, and he is declared to be  unworthy of the confidence or respect  of honorable men.  'One of the largest and most conservative mining undertakings in the state of  Washington is that of the Palmer Mountain  Gold Mining, &" Tunnel  Company.  This concern owns a solid group of 5<i  claims situated' on; the southeast slope  of Palmer mountain. - The company has  been developing the group almost continuously for the past three years and  is amply backed with the necessary capital to carry out the. principal object of  its incorporation���-the driving of a crosscut tunnel a distance* of 8o00 feet.   Already the bore is in 4000 feet.  ��� At the head cf the company and the  originator of the idea is John Boyd.   ,It  is against Boyd and his company, and  the Washington Develop-nent Syndicate,  inwhiclfho is also interested, that Haggerty" has; been   venting   his   personal  spleen thrcugh the columns of the Seattle Times  and the Spokesman-Review,'  in an ineffectual 'effort; to "knock." Both  papers have come in for a large share  of criticisms locally, for lending their  columns  for  the   publication   of  Hag-  gerty's self- written and slanderous interr  views, without any apparent attempt to  investigate the truthfulness of the statements made.   Haggerty's character and  standing * has been outlined.   -Mr. Boyd  is known on both sides-of the line as a  man of unimpeachable integrity and a  capable mine   manager.     In   attacking  Mr. Boyd,'Haggerty failed most miserably and   instead   brought   down   upon  himself the indignation pf every mino operator, claim owner and prospector of  Palmer Mountain.    At a  dignified and  orderly meeting Haggerty was given a  chance to retract his statements in the  press.   He crawfished and proved him-  =sdf=the=miserab]e=cur=that"=he=is*=*=Had=  it not been for the prompt action of tho  cooler heads of the community his punishment would have assumed a far moro  drastic, form.    Haggerty tasted exactly  what he would have inflicted on Jerry  Lincoln, a lawyer, who he himself caused  to be run out of camp one summer day  in 1892.    He has boen taught, a lesson,  it is hoped, that will cause him in the  future to attend strictly to his own business.  The correspondent of The Tribune was  up at the Palmer Mountain Gold Mining  Sc Tunnel Company's group today. At  present operations are being confined to  the development of several of the most  promising veins crosscut by the big tunnel. On the surface thirty veins outcrop  running in a general course northwest  and southeast. The veins cut quartering  through the formation and are true fissures. These veins are aU that have  been discovered as outcropping to the  surface in a distance of 8600 feet, but in  driving the tunnel a distance of 4000 feet  2S well-defined veins have been crosscut. Where crosscut by the tunnel the  first vein has a vortical depth of 150  feet; the last (number 2S) has a vertical  depth of 1390 feet. From this point the  mountain ascends rapidly. In 8600 feet,  under the Grand Summit veins the tunnel will have attained a vertical depth  of 4200 feet. The amount of ore thus far  crosscut is very large. By calculation  frcm figures submitted by Mr. Boyd, it  is found that in a distance of 4000 feet  thero is a total of some 200 feet of mineralized matter, with an average depth  of SOO feet, that can be worked at a  profit. The tract of land owned by tht;  company is almost a mile in width at  Uie base of the mountain, about one-  half mile in width at the summit, and  approximately two miles in length. Each  of the 56 claims has its individual surface showing of gold -bearing ore. The  tunnel is eight feet in height by nine  feet in width for double tracks.  During tho past five months there ha3  been formed by Mr. Boyd the Washington Development Syndicate, a close corporation. The object of this company,  as outlined iu the articles of incorporation, is to acquire minoral claims on  Palmer mountain, between here and Oro  and developing same by a long tunnel.  Assoct&ted with Mr. Royd is Clyde  Preston of Blanchard, and H. R. Turner  of Fargo, North Dakota, both capitalists interested in mines in British Columbia and this vicinity.  Tho syndicate lias secured contracts  for tho purchase, covering a period cf  twelve months, of JoOl claims en bios  lying within tho iccopnized mineral  zone on Copper mountain and stretching batween Loomis ou tho southwest  slopo clear across to Oro on ihe Similkameen river. W. M. Hol/blns of Chicago, the consulting engineer, spent  two months on the mountain studying  the geology and formation and taking  hundreds of samples from the numerous  surface exposures found between the  points outlined. His opinion iu that at  depth' the ores of Falmer mountain  will bo found to be largely copper sulphide. This,is known to be the case  of the ore exposed by workings on the  north and eastern slopes. On the southwestern slope whero aro situated the 56  claims of the tunnel company, the  veins on the surface are quartz, adaptable to a milling and concentrating or  cyaniding process for tho extraction of  the precious metals. At depth, it' is.  proven by the tunnel the character of  tho ore changes perceptibly, with copper conring in. On this assumption Mr.  Robbins' theory is endorsed by other  prominent mining engineers who have  spent weeks in a thorough examination  of Palmer mountain. It is apparent that  the future treatment or the ore will be  by a smelting process. ,  The syndicate is now in negotiations  with the repn-sentatives of the copper  combine; who are desirous of purchasing the v-hole group. If this dealis not  consummated arrangements are~ already well advanced for the purpose  of floating an issue or guaranteed  bonds, and with the proceeds the syndicate will itself take up fhe contracts  and carry out the proposed plan of development by driving: a tunnel; clean  through the .mountain., "approximately  a distance of ten and a half miles in  length- This gigantic bore will in reality bo a continuation of the present  Palmer mountain tunnel, and will De  continued, according to the preliminary  survey, to tap at great depth the veins or  ere bodies of the Copper World, Ivanhoe, Triune, and Spokane groups, besides the veins of numerous other  claims lying between these w>ill known  properties. The. Spokane, the Black  Bear and the War Eagle are owned and  controlled by Canadian capital.  Power to carry out this truly stupendous undertaking, which when  started will proceed simultaneously  from both the Loom:"***, and Oro ends,  will be furnished by electricity gene-  rated_ on Toat's Coulee creek, about  one and a half miles from the Loomis  end of the bore, where over f:000 horse  power is capable of "-boing develops.  Below the mouth of the tunnel; at Oro  is .surveyed , the proposed line. of the  Great Ncitheru railway. Here, too, will  ba located tho reduction works. Tno  plan outlined will require tbe expenditure of vast sums of money, well up in  tho, millions,.and the tunnel itself will  necessitate four years' time to allow of  its completion The project on its face  appears tc be almost an impossibility,  but as the matter of engineering ft is  entirely practicable, given eaplcai.  brain power and muscle v/ill not be  lacking to carry Mr. Br.yi's scheme  through to a successful completion.  ling, now" of Phoenix, is taking the  Church of England services at Greenwood and other ministrations of Rev. W.  A. Robins, who is taking a three weeks'  vacation ln the Similkameen, whence he  is gone en a hunting trip with Rev. H.  Irwin (Father Pat), now of Fairview.  Bishop Dart came over from Nelson a  day or two ago on a day's visit to Rev.  E. P. Flewelling to make himself acquainted with the nature of that clergyman's work and the* prospects of his  newly organized charge at Phoenix,  where the completion of the church  building is being delayed by reason of  the non-arrival of the requisite seasoned lumber from the coast.  It is announced that Andrew Laidlaw,  under whose direction the incompleted  pyritic smelter was built near Boundary Falls, will, with his family, shortly  leave Greenwood for Chicago, where he'  will reside for a time. He lately returned from a business visit to the Windy  City, where he had been endeavoring to  irterest capitalists to take over and operate the pyritic smelter and to invest  in Boundary mining properties.  Dale Brothers are down from Carwin,  on the West Fork of Kettle fiver, with  some good looking ore from the Butcher  Boy claim, which adjoins the Carwin.  The latter last winter shipped SS5 tons of  oreto tho Greenwood smelter and received returns which left a satisfactory  margin of profit, notwithstanding the  Ihigh cost of hauling ore about sixty  miles;1. * ��� ������'��� -, ��� ���"_'*���.    ; .>.��� '������*���.*������  Provincial engineer F.

GUN FIGHTERS FROM JOPLIN  Causing Trouble at Northporb.  NORTHPORT. November 10���[Special to The Tribune.]���A number of Joplin^ smelter men were in Almstrum  Brotlf��rs'^sfncroir^i^''oWtirit*)^t^e^  terday afternoon at 4 o'clock when Ed  Kennedy entered. Kennedy was singing a scng which mado some reference  to "scabs." The Missourians asked >f  it was meant for them. H* answered  that it was meant tor anyone who now  worked at the smelter. A fight ensued  and as it was in progress another Joplin man named Stark came in at the  back door and began Miooting. Several  shots were fired, the last one taking  effect in Kennedy's back just hp h-_ was  gettirg cut of thc back dorn. He is in  a very critical condition and it is  doubtful if he will recover. Stark was  arrested and taken to Colville on a light  engino last night by deputy sheriff Anderson. Ar other Missourian named A.  L. Coons is also under surest and in  jail here. It is charged that he hammered Kennedy over the head witi a  gun. Kenredy was for years blnst foreman at the smelter here and fnr some  time he occupied a similar position in  the Heinze smelter at Butte.  This morning another Joplin man  whose name cannot bo learned went to  Paul Podany's saloon at the corner of  Summit avenue and Fourth street, and  declared himself, displaying two guns.  Ho was promptly disarmed, badlv  beaten, and then thrown into the street.  He started for reinforcements and more  guns, but was arrested by deputy sheriff Anderson before he got in fighting  trim again. The. Missourians have benn  inclined to carry things with a very  high hand of late. For several evenings  they have been coming down town getting full, and then going tack to the  smelter firing off their guns and shouting through the residence district.  Tho city council met last night and  appointed four extra policemen. Gambling was closed immediately after th'>.  fight yesterday afternoon.  Things are in a very critical and dangerous state, and unless something is  dono in the near future, it. rray be necessary to declare martini lav. Thc Joplin men arc fighters and they ;tre elaf<vl  by tho victory they won over the smelter management when they forced  Frecheville to remove Labarthe. Feeling has never boen hichcr than at the  present moment, and it will be lucky  if very serious trouble is averted.  In Excavating for Building.  HELENA, Montana, November 10.���  Tho site of the new federal building in  this city is the scene of a rich gold  strike and by the terms of a clause inserted in the contract between the construction' company and the federal govern ment tho latter -wi 11 be thc sole bene-  ficiary of the discovery. This -clause  provides that all minerals found on :he  property shall belong to the government, consequently the construction  company will be compelled to mine, the  ore while the government will receive  the profit. Assays made show, free milling gold ore to the value of ?1S and  ?20 per ton. AVhile the exact width of  the vein has not yet been ascertained,  mining experts estimate that it will.be  fully 25 and perhaps 40 feet, making it  a strike of immense proportions. Tho  vein extends across the entire block,  from southeast to northwest, and the  quartz is highly stained with iron. Continuing in a northwesterly direction the  vein gees directly beneath the residence  of colohel Thomas Cruze, the millionaire banker, who twenty years ago discovered the richest gold mine in Mou-  Jana.^the Drum Lummon. which he af-  terwards  1500,000.  sold   to   the   Rothschilds   for  Greenwood Local News.

McGregor,  a real estate broker, is thc f ecretary of  thc conimitte having the meeting in  charge, and he has wired invitations to  all the members of the legislature to 4e  present. It is not likely any of the up-  country members will attend; but a  packed house, is counted on, for the political managers here have been discomfited by premier Dunsmuir, who refuses  to do the bidding of Helmcken and McPhillips, two members that were a year  ago hostile to every interest that in any  wey interfered with the C.P.R., and they  will make every effort to show lhat their  clamor in Victoria is public opinion  throughout the province.  Easily Insulted in Hard Times.  BERLIN, November 10.���The cases  of lese nia^este. which were greatly diminished during the summer, again begin to assume, serious proportions. It  is remarkable that the offense increases  ���whenever there is industrial depression  as now. Two of the strangest cases are  thoso of a newspaper which condemned  the kaiser's reception of prince Chun  and of a man who would not riso from  his eeat when a "hoch" was called for  t.he kaiser at a meeting which he attended. The editor got six months, thc  other man three. A Kohrgsbwg man  accuse.d of this crime committed suicide.    Construction Is Stopped.  ORO, Washington, Noveniber 10. -  [Special to Tho Tribune.]--J, H. Kennedy, engineer in charge of the construction work on the Great! Northern  lino from Marcus to the camps of tlie  Bour.dary, was recently hero exami^  ing the work of the sun overs. He had  intended to have kept the force in tho  field, if necessary all winter, surveying  up tho Similkameen vf.lley to Princeton. Inrtructions came from St. Paul  to discontinue the work; fo the men  wero discharged and the camp outfl*:  stored hero ready for uso when headquarters  should issue  instructions.  SOFIA, November 10.���Information lias  been received here from Doubnitz-that  the band of   brigands   holding  captiva  Miss, Stone called about a fortnight ago  at the *��.illage of Smetchevo and subsequently proceeded to the monastery at  Rilo, but the movements of the troops  compelled the brigands to flee towards  the frontier, where they are now hiding.  ���It is also asserted that the brigands have  recently teen treating Miss Stone with  more severity in order to exercise pressure and compel a more ready accep-.  tance of their conditions.    Consul general   Dickinson   is   inflexible.    He   insists that the surrender of Miss Stone  must prccedo or  he simultaneous with  the.payment of the ransom.   Hi's attitude is justified by tho known determination of some members of the band, particular the captain, Yanne. Sandansky.  to kill Miss Stone and her companion  as soon as tho ransom is'received, owin^  to the fact that the captives have now.  acquired   it-formation   concerning   ,the  secret committees.    Competent persons,  however, express the opinion that.the-  cupidity of tho brigands .will overcome  tlieir.fear of revelations and' these approve the action of Mr. Dickinson.   Yesterday Mr. Dickinson made another energetic   presentation   to   thec Bulgarian  government against the movements' cf  the  Bulgarian   troops,  reproaching the  officials with thc fact that, notwithstanding their solemn promises, to give him  all assistance in their power their action  was embarrassing the negotiations, retarding a settlement and placing in jeop-  ardythe life of Miss Stone.- He made a  definite declaration that the Bulgarian  government would be held responsible  for the death of Miss, Stone and of all  the consequences of her death should it  be proved that the attitude of the Bulgarian government forced the brigands  to,kill their captives.  Corrupt From Top to Bottom. ���  NEW "SORK. November 10.���Th? sultan's yielding lo the French demands  brings out tho full gravity of the possibilities of the effect of French seizure  of Mitylene upon tho crumbling edifice  of Turkish despotism, says the Constantinople correspondent of the World1-  The whole of Europe in Turkey Is  reeking with disorder. In Armenia the  annual butcheries have boen in Cull  swing for the past three months and rn  the remainder of the empire ther-)-is  the perrennial violence, corruption,  waste and lawlessness. From the army  down to the magistrate every machine  of the government is in a hopeless con-  dition.^In the_opjnlcri of^the^dipjornatie  body at Constantinople any attempt at  patching things up will be merely a  futile effort. The news of French Intervention was suppressed at Constantinople for threo days, but the sultan's  the perennial violence, corruption,  showed that a serious crisis had arisen.  The sultan has been in a condition'iif  epileptic fury and his ministers, who  live in perpetual (error of their lives  at his hands, were heipless and afraid  to do or suggest anything. It is believed  in Constantinople Russia is behind  France in this business ond it is felt  tho present trouble is inevitably destined to lead to developments in which:  England will be powerless to make,  hor influence felt.  Rossland Local News.  ROSSLAND, November 10.���[Special  to Tbo Tribune.]���The murder of Kennedy, a well known union xoan, at  Northport by a lot of Missourians last  night has caused a great deal of comment here. Tho Missourians have made  a practice of carrying firearms at all  times and what has happened at North-  port may occur here at any time.  McKenzie King, deputy minister of  labor, arrived here last night. It is noc  expected that his visit will result ia  any adjudication of rho strike.  The lecal rifle eompany and the Canadian -"eteraus attended St. George's  church this afternoon, where a special  service was held in honor of the king's  birthday.  Oscar Szontagh of San Francisco is  oxpected to arrive at Northport early  in the week to take charge of the  smolter on the conditions refused by  Jules Labarthe of Northport last week.  Hector McRae has returned to Rossland after a two months' visit in the  East.  Tunnel Under Caucasus Proposed.  ST. PETERSBURG, November 10.���  A bold, remarkable project is receiving  attention among Russian engineers. It  is proposed to construct a tunnel under  tho main chain of the Caucasus mountains from a point forty miles south, of  Vladikavkas. The- tunnel will be  twenty-three miles long ar.d cost $75,-  000,000. As soon as the trans-Siberian  railway is finished it is believed that this  Caucasian tunnel, which, has the warm  support of the czar, will bo. commenced,.  ���1  Yi  fir  ..-'! i-S*  li  THE NELSON TRIBUNE,  MONDAY MORNING,  NOVEMBER  11, 1901  -. \  ;ii  4*^SfcS fc  to  to  to  *$\  m  to  to  f\\  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  i  &'6is&r-    w  to  to  to  iNCOltrOKATKI) 1070  o o zMziP-A-irsrir  LIQUOR  DEPARTMENTS  WHOLESALE RETAIL  to  to  \     to  r          ��  Y, ���       ffK  i   '      *  "*?  v                               ���*���  Yf        /f\  vr   *  'Y    z   to  to  The following goods are now in stock, or  will arrive in the course of a few days:  Two carloads of Ontario Canned Goods.-'  One carload assorted-Groceries from the: East,  One carload assorted Groceries from the West;  A direct shipment J from England of Peek,  Freen & Go's Fancy Biscuits, of Pascal's Sweets]-  and of Rowntree's Confections';  New Evaporated-Fruits direct from California.

OTIS, NELSON'S PIANO TUNER, HAS  returned from bis vacation trip and is again  ready far im-incas.  For  stating  that the ore  shipments  Irom the Slocan were greater during,the  month of October last than during ths  same month in any p'evious year of the  ���camp's history, The 'Tribune is brought  to task by the Sandon Mining Review,  a publication that hates itself, 3ia.es the  people of the community in which it is  published,   hates ' the   province,"''hates  prosperity,  and,  above  all,  hates  The  Tribune and its editor. No words of "blue  -ruiri" havo ever appeared in- Thc Tribune; 'instead,' The Tribune has held to  'tlie' opinion that" all events are 'ordered  'for the,best: it bas preferred to.look on,  the bright side of things.   In tne days of  -depref-sion  iu  IS&o and _S&4, when sil/er  'was dropping fronva dollar an ounce'tc.  sixty cent'., and uo one had a good word  ,to say for silver or a dollar to invest in  silver mines, The Tribune, week after  ���week, attempted to show,that the silver-  lead mines of the -Slocan, 'even with sil- ]  ver at sixty cents" aii ounce, were bonanzas. In 1S05, ;t change came for the"  better, and the Slocan had three years of  'great prosperity. Iu ISM; the legislature  passed what is now known'as trie "eight-'  hour   law"   for   men   worlting   underground in mines.   With lhe passage,of  ,that   law,   The ��� Tribune   had   nothing,  whatever to dol'   Neither directly .nor'  indirectly did the editor of The Tribune  hear of, take part in, or ratify any deal  or agreement, political or otherwise, in  which the eight-hour   day   was   to   be  made the" price of the delivery of certaia  support or votes to J. Fred'Hume;6f Nelson, who was then minister of rcine-3,-  or. to anyone else. Once the law became'  operative, it.had the support:of The-Tribune, a support that was given witho'it.  a single promise, implied or otherwise,-  of future assistance, financial .or ppliti-  :calf-"=from~ahy���man-^or-^ciass^of^menr"  During' the  year that'law was  under  fire, tho "blue, ruin" press tried to. make *  it appear that the country had gone {pi  the devil.' The Tribune took'the bright1  side; and predicted'a great'future' for'the  mining  districts   of  British -Columbia.  The eigh-hour law is no, longer an issu..,  and few people in tho province would  care to have it repe'aicu.    Now, when  these "blue ruin" newspapers are litter-.  ing doleful cries as to the condition of  the country, Tho Tribune prints statistics that go to show that British Colum-.  bia is getting -along as well as any othor!  'section of the world that depends almost'  : entirely on the precious metal' miriin'g"  industry.. All of which is exceedingly  distasteful to newspapers like the San-:  ;don'Mining Review.   The Tribune-se-ia  no good reason to change its policy, ind  .whilst it is hard scratching at timed io  n.ake ends. meet in a business that is - as.'  overcrowded as ��� the newspaper business  is in Kootenay,-this newspaper will al-^  ways be fouriri'telling the'boys that there  , are .as good mines in bur. mountains'.ds:  those that are .being worked; that new*  methods* of. treating 'ore will overcome'  tlie'loss'es caused by the' fall in prices of  silver and  lead;   that'there is always;  standing room at the top for those who  ���have the courage to keep climbing.  During-the las*, ten days, the V.V. & E.  press of 'Victoria and: Vancouver -haVa'  given much space to announcing* the doings atid proposed doings"' of the' men  who got the people of .Victoria.to.votie'  half a million dollars as a subsidy towards the operation of a ferry boat be-,  tween the Sydney end of the* Victoria &  Sydney   railway    and    Liverpool,' tho  Fraser river end   of a branch  of the'  Great Northern railway system.   These  announcements are now followed by aln-  announcement that a public meeting will  be held on Monday liight (tonight) at a  theatre in Victoria "to discuss the political situation." Jnvitat>ons to attend this  meeting have iseea telegraphed to aU. trie  members pf tlie legislatiire, as if tho  to  to  to  IRVINE   &  CO  36 Bakep Street, Nelson.

There arc a dozen or mora  seats in the'Dominioh house of Commons'-  vacant irom- one cause or another, and  the Laurier, government takes" its own  ,time to  issue  writs  for  bye-elections,  yet the rnere"fact that these vacancies  exist does not cause the people,of Canada to go into hysterics and .declare that  there "is a political situation" that must  be discussed instanter at public meetings  in thesters and at extra sessions of the  house of commons.   If the people of Canada do not take alarm at such vacancies,  why'should the people of British Coluii-'  bia be hysterical because there is ono  vacant seat in the legislative assembly  and tliat vacancy>in the city of-Victoria?  At no period m the history of this province have the people been so persistently- pestered by a gang of political subsidy-hunting'parasites "as: "at the present  time.

The owners of this company  have engaged the services of politicians  to secure for them (the owners of the  company) the right to take from the provincial treasury millions'of the people's  money, and these politicians are doing  their utmost'to manufacture public opinion as approving of their'methods.   Tho  public meeting in the Victoria' theatre"  tonight is merely one of the acts in the  play.   The people of the province will  probably give it as-inu'ch heed, as, th6y  would an announcement that the "Pir--  ates of Penzance" woiilcl. appear at the  Victoria' theatte on a,- given- date.  ,of the piovince is divided as near as  can be' according' to popu'fation and  ���community of interest: The Trib'une  does not contend that every riding  should have-just'So many pec pie, but it  does contehd'that'3500.people in Koote-  nay-and'Yale districts are'as fairly entitled to be represented m the legislature as a, like .number: of ieople ln  New Westminster district or in Iho  farming*or mining districts on Vancouver.Island; 'and it also; contends that no  section -"should be made into a riding  merely to'give this or lhat man a safe  scat. The Trib.une is not a believer iu  the divine" right" of kings oi lhat any  one class has an mheicnt right to hold  office. Such ��� principles- are, of course,  abhofent to men like.'J. M. Kellij o\  Revelstoke and thp newspapers of Golden and Canterbury and of the retainers at the country seats of cur present  finance minister.  The Lardeau Eagle, published in the  center of the Trout Lake mining division, a.section.of country which is attracting the attention of mining m.m,  ���says.:   "This   province" must  and   will  "soon" have a redistribution -of rebrc-  ^sentationr^And-^after^all^ie^Eaid-^and^  ." done  the   Nelson" Tribune   comes' as  "near being right as can be expected.  "Wo must''be as fair as possible, and  "though 'we,'_iave'���'to a'coept now terri-  " tory aind acquaint ourselves with new  '.' associatesi the.

" the Kootenay and along the line of  " the Crow's Nest road as far west ^s  "Kootenay Landing, with Cranbrook  " and Mcyie and Creston as central  "towns, to constitute the "second rid-  "ing."  The Fort Steele Prospector says:  "The Prospector is in favor, of and would  "like to have a redistribution bill  "passed at tho next sitting of the local  "house. As to the division * of South-  " east Kcotenay into two ildings, th3  "people of this district will have somu-  ." thing to say on the matter when re-  " distribution' is in sight."  Of the members from Kcotenay, E.  C. Smith of Southeast Kootenay can be  depended on to support a ecjuare deal;  Smith  Curtis' of  Rossland  has  placed  himself on record; R. F. Green of Slocan will rot stand for anything except  a   fair   redistribution   of   seat's;.   John  Houston,  of  Nelson   maintains   that  a  redistribution' measure should be submitted to the house once it meets, find  that the measure should be considered  and passed before a vote is taken on an'.y  other question;   Tom Taylor bf ReveT-  =stoke=has=decla.red"*=himself^'on**revery*i  other issue or question except ��� that of  redistribution; ' Wilmer   C.    Wells   of  Palliser can be depended on to vote with  the men-bers from the pocket boroughs  on  every  proposition,  for  he couldn't  hope to be elected in   any. riding   in  Kootenay unless it was one carved out  for him specially.    In Yale, both Price  Ellison of Vernon and-P. J. Fulton of  Kamloops can be depended on to vote  to do away with pocket borough representation.    Dennis Murphy of Ashcroft  will have to mc.ve to Princeton if ho  wants to continue   to   represent   West  Yalo,  but Ho will  probably vote with  the old gang who want tlio dd order  of things to remain as they are.  would have had $5219.95 to the good, for  distribution as; a yearly dividend on al  share capital issued of ?485,000, which is,  equal to 1.07 per cent on the capital invested, i  ,Dqwn in California there is an organization known as "The California Stated  Miners' Association." The object of the  organization is to protect the interests,  of the men engaged in mining as owners,  not as workers. At its last annual meeting,'which was held in San Francisco  on October 21st, nearly 500 delegaten-  were in attendance. Its sessions were  open and above board. It is just what it  purports*.;to be.

GREENWOOD, November 10.���[Special  Correspondence of The Tribune.]���  Yesterday's mail brought me a copy of  '   the  Toronto  "Monetary Times"  cf the  list instant, in wliich is thc concluding  portion of aiv account of a visit to the  Sault   Ste.   Mario   industries,   in   which  conclusion the writer made "a series of  reflections on tho meaning and use" of  what he saw in the���to the eye of many���  uninviting   country   lying   immediately  north of Lake Supoiior.    The article is  too long to hero quote, in full, but iu viow  of'the  disposition  envinced  in  certain  ��� ���'quarters  to   "knock"   the   mining   and  .smelting   industries   of   this   Boundary  .district in -particular, and indeed of the  province in general^ it appears probable  .'that there arc many...who will fe2l encouraged to persist in having faith in  their district and province if they .read  .the more pertinent of the "reflections"  alluded to.   They are as follows:  "No one who sees what we did ami  hears explanations of the gradual and  natural evolution of these industries, the  one from the other, is likely to have  anj- patience with the people���there are  such people���who say: 'All very fine,  no doubt. Mr. Clergue is a clever and  adventurous man. an optimist, who bores  with a large auger, and spends money  like water. But he isiVt making any  money.' Let us suppose that he. is an  unpractical idealist. But tho eastern  capitalists he has behind him, putting up  their fifteen millions of dollars or more,  aro among the very shrewdest and most  hard-headed people in the States. Thoy.  or some of them, visit those works ones  a year, some of them probably oftener.  _=it.=is=ocnceivable-that=such=men=as=these=  would continue, year after year, to invest the money of themselves and others  if they were not either getting returno  now, or satisfied that the returns will  come? Besides, whoso business is it  but their own whether the Clergue syndicate make,money or no? It ill becomes  nny Canadian to find fault with people  who put their own money into our waste  places and cause them to blossom.  "Thc tesimony of the rocks is proving  what riches wo have in northern Ontario. It is hardly wonderful that many  people of no imagination, seeing 'hat  rugged const line of Superior, should  say: 'Behold! here is naught.' Scrubby  woods���weatherbeaton, unlovely rock's:  these to tlie iminstructcd eye, aro 'al'  thero is to if. But the prospector, thc  miner, the scientist discover in .such elements minerals of both use .and beauty  . . . . Theso things being demonstrated, along comes the capitalist in hia  turn, and puts up his money to transform them into a mercantile commodities, yielding him so much per cent. All  this cannot go on without benefiting -civs  country. > These people buy food, machinery and clothing from us and employ  our citizens. If the usufruct of the capital so used goes in part out of Canada,  it is a pity; but Canada and Canadins  meanwhile benefit enormously by- the expenditure of this capital."  Of course similar reflections are only  in part applicable to the conditions obtaining in the Boundary district, yet  they do apply in sufficient degree to hav-3  considerable force here. But we need  not depend upon others for encouragement through this our time of building  up. Wc have-much to justify the faith  Jthat is in us; i.e. our faith in our min-  or.al resources. It is not necessary now  to d.we.11 on the progress the provinco ns  a wht>".lG has made in this connection, but  attention may bo directed once again  to the great advance in total values ot  its mineral production that has been  made in ten years. In 1S9.1 tho total  value of minerals produced in Briti__i  Columbia was p,521,-02; in 1895 it was  555,643,0-42, whilst in 1900 it reached the  comparatively large total of ?.6,344,751.  Theso figures tell their own tale of material progress.  The progress of the Boundary district  though, concerns us more nearly, so .-t  will be used as a set-off to tho insinuations of the "knocker." Prior to 1900  practically no ore had been sent our.  from the'mines of the district. During  ���the first half of that year production was |  on a small scale, total shipments bavins  been only about 4000 tons, and not a single ton smelted in the district, but early  in the second half progress was fairly  entered upon, and by the close of th.  year the output of the district aggregated 97,741 tons, of whicn quantity C2.387  tens were smelted at the Granby company's smelter at Grand Forks. In February of the current year the British  Columbia Copper Company's smelter, at  Greenwood, commenced operations and  thereafter both production' and local  treatment substantially increased until,  today we have good reason to be proud  of the progress made, the output of the  mines of the district for ton months to  October 31st having been ::05,S6S tons, of  wliich 2S0.454 tons were smelted at the  two smelters True there have been  and still arc drawbacks and disappointments, but these are inevitable in a new;  country. Admitting- that this district  lias had its downs as well as, its ups, it,  nevertheless, lias made very substantial  progress on the whole. In particular one  great point has been gained.vlz: that hot'  only have the mining companies found  that operations must be'on a large scale  to mako thei enormous bodies of low  grade ore characteristic of the district  yield profitable returns, hut two or three  of them-are adapting themselves to the  conditions, and herein lies' our chief  hope, "knockers" to the contrary no_-  withstaiding.  Let us, therefore, adapt to our own  case the closing "reflections" of the  writer above quoted: The value of the  advent of these industrial* combinations  is not that they have shown us what  we had there, but that they have shown  us how to utilize our richesi. If they  have not found our resources for the first  time,- they have shown us what they  were sood for, and have railroaded into-  tbe wilds for neglected wealth. They  have been a stimulus to this district  of ours, to both our enterprises and our  self-esteem. They must have worked  'and=explored=to=rcaoh=^where-they=now*=  stand. ' Such heights and depths of mineral riches as they reached in searching  Were not attained by sudden flight,  Hut they, while their companions slept,  Were toiling upward in the night.  And though in some respects it is yet  night with us, the cheering signs of  dawn are certainly to be seen.  E. JACOBS.

Young of the provincial police  returned on Saturday from Erie, where  he went in the hopes of capturing tho  convict Reilly who escaped from the  Nelson jail some two weeks ago.

The escape of Reilly from the  country is not so much due to his own  shrewdness as to the indifference.of the  people with whom he came in contact.
