 ESTABLISHED   1S92  SATURDAY  MORNING,  NOVEMBER  9,   1901  DAILY EDITION  TflENEWPLACERS  HORSEFLY  COUNTRY DESCRIBED  ^BY ONE  WHO  HAS BEEN THERE.  FISH AND  GAME IN  Y    " ABUNDANCE.  f  .' GREENWOOD, November 7.���[Special  ^Correspondence of Tlie" Tribune.]���Tho  ���story sent to eastern newspapers by a  'Vancouver correspondent " attributing  ;to A. Druclcer, an English ex-M.P., the  recent discovery of a new placer gold  [field on a creek tributary to the Horsefly  Jriver, in the Cariboo district, is, it appears, only a fairy tale. Knowing that  .Mr. Ducker, who has been interested in  ���somo. mineral claims near Greenwood  for nearly five years, left Greenwood  pearly last summer <��� in company with  *L. S. Moulton Barrett of that town on a  ���trip to the Cariboo, The Tribune correspondent at Greenwood asked Mr.  sSarrctt what truth, if any, thero was in  (the statements connecting Mr. Ducker'-*  (name with the nc.w placers. That gentle-  /man replied, in effect, ihai*. having re-  iJ.ceived a communication from some mea  !^.vho had taken up leases on the upper  Ja.aiu Horsefly and wliich they offered to  i-sell to him, he induced Mr. Ducker to  {accompany him for the purpose of looking over the ground. They left Greeu-  [wood together on .Tune 7th and spent;  Jabouttwo months in tho Horsefly eotut-  ftry. Mr. Barrett took somo men in from  (Harper's Camp, and, after testing tha  *|ground,.secured the leases to'about fou;v  imiles of the upper .'Horsefly'riyer.. Two  jmen, R M. Campbell and il'. Stirsky,  1 who'worked for him whilst trying the  | ground he now holds, afterwards went  | prospecting up a creek which joins the  i maiii or south fork of the main Horsefly���  f about two milesaljove his ground, and  { he had lately be-on informed that they  | found placer gold in payable Quantities.  |; He had intended going np thii creek  f himself before returning from that part  i, of_tho country, but a cable message re-  f calling Mr. Ducker to England'followed  ���- him.up there, so that their stay"was conT  ��� sequently shortened, and he had toaban-  | don. his intention to prospect the creeks  V above his lenses, .and return with Mr.  Ducker to Ashcroft, whoncD the latter  went East on his retiiM. to England.  Respecting the country in which tho  new find hasbeen made, Mr. Barrett said  thnt; it is rough, heavily timbered, and  tlitle known. It is reached by tho stage  road from the C. P. R. at Ashcroft via  Lac La Hache to Harper's Camp, in '.ho  vicinity of which, en the Horsefly, is  situate the property of the Mioeen.. Gravel Mining Company of Cariboo, Limite<j|��  of which senator Campbell is managerf;  One of the larger maps of the Cariboo"  and surrounding country published "by  the provincial government shows the  river coming from the eastward to Harper's as the Stillwater river. Thi., Mr.  Barrett says, is a mistake, for it is tho  main.- fork  of  the   Horsefly.    What   is   shown _on_-the_same__niap__as__St,illwatei'_  lake is merely a marsh, through whici)  the Horsefly river flows. From Harper's  up to Mr. Barrett's leased claims is about  .5 miles of which 30 miles are through  heavy timher. and for this distance Mr.  Barrett's men had' to cut a trail. Just  below this leased ground there aro falls  in the riVer of some 60 feet drop. Another way in is frcm Harper's, seven  miles to Horsefly lake, on thc little  Horsefly, thence up the* lake 38 miles,  nnd thence over a divide S miles to t.h-.  main Horsefly. The headwaters .f tho  Horsefly rivor are on a divide distal-:  only about five miles from the Clearwater river, to the eastward, which runs  south and is an important branch of thc  North Thompson river.  Tho formation in the ��� neighborhood  is chiefly slate or scist, with big quarts  ledges, some running ncrosr. t.he rivet  and others parallel with it, in places  standing out from tho slate, which has  been - eroded from tlie harder quarts.  The value of theso lodges is not know;:,  for they have not yet been prospected  The hills rising from the valley of tha  river are steep and high, running -o  2300 or 2400 feet above the river and  about C400 feet above sea level. They  rise above the timber limit, the upper  ���parts to their summits being covered  with the moss well-known in the Cari-  * hoo: The timber is chiefly white pine.,  cedar, and hemlock. Game is plentiful,  including caribou, black tail deer, bear  <black, sheole, grizzly and cinnamon),  whilst marten, beaver, otter, wolverine,  find other fur animals aro also there.  There are as well plenty of duck., ami  wild geese, and fish in a.bundance (rainbow and-silver trout). Mr. Barrett states  that when coming down stream to Harper's on one occasion he caught 10 troiit  ranging from 2y2 to 5 pounds each.  The lower Horsefly river has long been.  Known as gold-bearing, the first d.scov-  erv of gold in it having been made, so  it is stated, in April of 1S59.   The Horse-  I; ily Hydraulic Mining Company is open-  I  in" up its mine for operation on a large  |( scale by the drifting and milling process.  1/ From official publications it is lsarned  I  that   up  to the  close of last year  thc  workins: cut and tunnel had been driven  about 1200 feet,  and  that 3165 feet of  working gangways and drifts had been  driven "through   the   deposits   at   right  r angles to the main   tunnel,   to   explore,  W block out, and open the auriferous gravel  V for extraction  by  the drifting process.  | During the progress of opening up tho  I mine for operation by the drifting and  V, jailllng process 9901 tons of cemented |  gravel, bedrock, etc., mined from the  various drifts, were put through tho  company's 10-stamp mill, and produced  $1-1,504.21, an average of about $1.46 per  ton. ������-���'.  The Miocene Gravel Mining Company  had when the, last report was published  sunk a shaft a depth of 550 feet to bedrock. At that depth a tunnel was driven  500 feet and from this a short upraise  reached the main channel, which gave  much promise of yielding a deal of gold.  The result of the operations during the  season now closing has not yet been  made public. The Horsefly Gold Mining  Company has also been doing effective  work in this neighborhood. -Last season  it spent about $13,000 ir. opening ap its  ground, and towards the close of the  season some very rich gravel was encountered, $7000 having been recovered  from 500 cubic yards of gravel. Other  claims are also being operated on a  smaller scale, with promise of profitable  returns. It would seem, therefore, from  the fact that much gold is known to be  in the lower part cf the river, there is  good reason to anticipate that the upper  creeks that feed it should be well worth  extensive and systematic prospecting.  DICKINSON IS HANDICAPPED  In the Stone Case.  SOFIA, Bulgaria, November s!���The  government caused the airest last night  of ������������"a" man who was visiting United  States consul-genera?; Dickinson and  seaiched him, presumably thinking he  wasi an emissary of the brigands and  expect ing to seize a comm unication to  or from Miss Stone, the, American missionary. The man was subsequently released. This action of the authorities  was r-eemingly an attempt to* frighten  delegates 'who might visit Mr. Dickinson and thim- prevent negotiations from  taking place in Bulgarian territory.  Th? attitude of the authorities hampers Mr. Dickinson, as the brigands refuse to treat-in Turkey.  Mr. Dickinson in his' reply to Miss  Stone's letter urged the brigands to reduce -till further their demands aud  accept tbo "mount subset ibed, in -view  of the determination of the government  not to contribute towards the ransom  and impossibility *of .collecting further  subscrii'tidns. It is believed the brigands'.will agree to this, as they are  now beginning to feel hard pressed and  wane money fr;r current expenses, such  as the bribery of officials, pennants and  others. The letter.insists that the surrender of the prisoners must precede  or bft simultaneous with the payments,  hut' leaves the '"question of the place  open., A messenger; last'" night brought  a letter from -Miss Stone written in  English All her ; previous' communications havo been in Bulgarian. The letter says f,ho is still well and gives valuable irformatioa.about hei- captors and  other circumstances which Miss Stone  Avas debarred from sending in Bulgaria-  Big Street Eailway Deal.  SAN FRANCISCO, November 8.���The  entire system of the Market street railway company has practically been sold  to the Baltimore syndicate which has  been negotiating for its purchase. Tho  deal is understood to have been closed  at a conference between Huntington and  I. W. Hill-man, representing themselves  and other stockholders of the Market-  street company, and George R. Webb of  -BaltiniorerBf=e=Hanford=and=atfomey^  general F. L. Ford of this city, representing the Baltimore syndicate. The  terms of the sale are not definitely  known. The Call states that $26,000,000  in cash is to bo paid for the property  and that final papers will be signed to1  day. It adds that the syndicate, w/11 expend at least $4,000,000 in improving the  property.  j A Fruit Canning Trust  SAN FRANCISCO, Noveniber 8.���According to the Chronicle a deal is abou-;  to bo consumated by which all the leading fruit canning establishments outside  of the California Fruit Canners' Association will pass into the hands of an eastern syndicate. The combined capacities  of the plants to be included in the proposed deal, it is said, will equal that of  the existing combine. The annual output will not be less than 1,500,000 cases  or 36,000,000 cans. It is understood  from reliable authority that nearly all'  of thc twenty odd outsnlo cauneiv. have  given options to a firm of. attorneys and  that the new company will soon be incorporated under tho laws of New Jersey with a capital of $5,000,000. The  names of the capitalists are not given.  Fatal Stabbing Affray.  VICTORIA, November 8.���Tom Notes,  a Greek fisherman, unmarried, aged 30,  was murdered on Herald street here this  morning by Frank Nicolas, aged 47, an  Italian fisherman. The- two men had  been drinking and when visiting some  resorts below the dead line they quarreled over catches of fish and after  fighting' a few minutes Nicolas stabbed  Netes in thc .abdomen and left breast,  the latter wound causing death in  twenty minutes after the murdered man  was carried from where he was found  on the street to the police station.  Nicolas fled to the fishing village and  made off in his sloop. The police pursued in a steam launch, but the fugitive  has so far avoided capture.  counts. It is asserted"that most of the  money was stolen before July 1st, on  which date the auditors of the order furnished the bonding company then on  Thompson's bond with a statement that  his accounts were. correct. The statement, it is said, releases the bonding  company.        .      __1_  The Price of Beef.  . A well-known cattle raiser and a well-  known meat market manager and a well-  known' newspaper man were holding  friendly converse on Baker street one  day this week. The meat market manager contended that the pioneers of Nelson paid IS cents a pound for their tenderloins when they purchased them by  the quarter, whereas those who were  able to purchase tenderloins now could  obtain what they could pay for at 10  cents a pound. ��� The. newspaperman contended that the pioneers of Nelson ate  juicy steaks in the early-day palaces of  comfort aud good cheer that cost the  proprietors of these places, less per  pound than is now being paid for the  same steaks. The cattle raiser was no.  posted on the price of beef.-.teaks, but he  knew what he had been selling 2-year-  olds and 3-year-olds at for the last 37  years. .A wager was. made, and the-  newspaper man hunted.up some old bills  rendered by "Jos. Wilson" in 1S90 and  1891 and by "Wilson & Perdue" in 1892.  On. October 21st, 1890, ��� 169 pounds of  beef was hi. led at $16.90- Oh January  20th, 1892 162 pounds of beef was billed  at $19.44."On Marcli 9t.h, 1.891. 104 pounds  of beef was billed at $13.52. On February 3rd, 1S91,158 pounds of beef was billed at S3 8.96. On* June 1st, 1892, 170  pounds of beef was billed at $18.70. These  figures show that, in the early days, the  price of beef, when; purchased by the  quarter, ranged from 10 cents to 13 cents  a pound, the price varying according to  the season. Beef is now selling in Nelson at 10 cents a pound by the quarter,  and three, months ago it was selling for  i:_ cents. The cattle raiser says he sold  prime beef steers in 1890 and. 1891 at  $85 a head on the range. He now gets  $48. a head for deliveries .at''shipping  points.^  ���'-.' y'x- ' v'v * -." * ;.    ���_-..  x-7 Russia's.

PURSUIT OF THE PRISONERS  Who Escaped Yesterday.  " LEAVEN WOR TH, Kansas, November  8.���Forty mounted guards- are beating  the country for a radius of five miles  around the federal penitentiary at Fort  Leavenworth today in search of the escaped convicts who succeeded in escap-  jng_f rom_the_ guards Jate_yesterday._The.  country is wild and rough and affords  ample opportunities for escape, and as  all of the convicts aro desperate and  armed conflicts will doubtless result before they are captured. The net known  result of the mutiny and the following  fight with the guards was one convict  killed and four guards shot or ot.herwi.-se  hurt, but it is believed that many of the  fleeing convicts received wounds from  the bullets sent after them by pursuing  guards.  Advices received at the prison today  indicate that the convicts are making  for the Indian Territory, a hundred  miles south, with all speed. Warden  McClurgy is making efforts to head tham  off.    Wreck of a Michigan Schooner.  KINCARDINE, November 8.���The  crew of tho schooner Eureka, wrecked  about twenty miles from here, reached  here at 6 o'clock this morning in an exhausted condition. They had been tossed  about on a raft all night. One of the'  number, Mrs. Bigger, thc cook and wife  of the mate, was drowned. The schooner was leaded with lumber and .was on  her way to Lorain, Ohio, from Tawas,  Michigan, when wrecked. The crew belonged to Michigan.  NORTHPORT, November .8.���[Special  to The Tribune.]-���Superintendent Jules  Labarthe of the Trail smelter is not to  be manager of the smelter here. Mr.  Labarthe came down from Trail Wednesday accompanied by several men who  .had been working under him. there and  whom he had. selected for foreroen at  Northport. When he went tc�� the smelter a, difference arose between him and  manager Kadish, .who refused to turn  the plant over to him. Director Frecheville was summoned, from Rossland to  decide the matter. It is understood that  Mr. Labarthe was asked to agree to koap  the non-union men now at the siuelter_  as a condition of an agreement he was"  to sign before taking charge. At any  rate something came up which altered  his relations.with the company and he  will return to Trail; today. Director  Frecheville said this morning: "Mr.  Labarthe, after considering all phases of  the situation here has declined to accept the management. Mr. Kadish has  resigiied and as soon as we can find sonn  one in whom we have confidence to accept the position we will turn tho plan-  over to him. Until then things will remain ai. they ;,.are' iiqw." Probably the  most powerful reason for Mr. Labarthe's  failure to take charge ar the smelter is  the-attitude of the ;non-union men, who  feel sure * of their "positions as long as  Miv Kadish'-remains'in charge. It is  pretty certain'-that there are numbers  of them who would not hesitate to resort  to violence if they thought that by so  doing they could retain jobs-and kc-3p  otit;a n.anager.who has no interest _n  the strike, and - no reason for keeping  anything but the most efficient labor bh-  tainable. "Mr. .Frecheville has undoubtedly been influenced and awed by the-at-.  titude of these non-union .men, and by  - the fact-, that -th ey~ may., do some - damaga  to the plant if they are disappointed in  their expectations of keeping the  smelter on a non-union-basis.  A Valuable Gold Brick.  YMIR, November 8.���[Special to Tho  Tribune.]���It is reported here that J.he  gold brick representing the values recovered ou the plates of the Ymir mill,  during the recent cleanup was something over. $10,000. ln addition to this  the company will have the'value of the  concentiates and the values which remain] in. the* tailings which will be  eyanided. ��� - -  Exports via Northport.  NORTHPORT, November f.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���During the past week  "the import of ore and bullion from the  mines of the Slocan and the Hall Mining Company's smeltrr at Nelson amounted in value to close upon $35,000.  The imports from the Nelson smelter  amounted to 90 tons of bullion valued  at $24,211, and the ore imports consisted of-64 tons of Rambler ore value! at  $7105, and 21 tons of Reco ore valued  at $2709.        Japanese Coal Steamer Lost.  VICTORIA. November 8. ��� The  steamer Queen Adelaide arrived this  morning after a ttormy passage of  twenty days from Kobe. Japan. She encountered very heavy weather off the  Japanese coast and made very littl3  headway for three days.

The steamer was carrying coal from Kobe to Hong Kong. .  States government is not concerned immediately in the republic's doings in  view of the French statement that it  was not proposed to affect our trade interests unfavorably.

ROSSLAND, November 8.���[Special to  The Tribune ]���The non-union men at  Northport got thoroughly scared over  the advent of Jules Laba_-the at the  smelter, and they formed a union of  their own and made a demand that their  services should be retained. Labarthe  announced that lie wanted' only good  men, and did not* care whether they belonged to a union or not. The non-unioa  men threatened to strike unless thoy  wero protected. Director Frecheville  was sent for from Rossland and the result has been that Mr. Labarthe has re-  turned*ito-hisiold=occupation-=at-theiTrail=  smelter, along with Messrs. "Chambers,  Williams, and Hall, whom he brought  with him. The new manager iusisted  on a free hand in employing .men and a  closo down of the smelter so that he  could inspect the plant and take stock  properly before starting. Frecheville  has given in to the non-union demands  and lost a competent smelter manag-.-  thereby. No first-class smelter man  would attempt to commence work at  Northport except under just such conditions as Mr. Labarthe requested. Bernard McDonald went down to Northport  this afternoon and Frecheville is still  there. .

AN ACCOUNTING ASKED FOR  Premier Sued by His Mother.  VICTORIA, Nnvemher S.-Mrs. John  Dunsmuir, widow of the late Hon. 1..  Dur.smuir. founder of British Columbia's wealthiest family, has entered an  action against her son, Hon. Jac.-._s  Dunsmuir, premier of British Columbia,  which involves _a_p��r-tiou-of-_<ho-big_-esr_  tate. Mrs. Dunsmuir asks for the delivery of 4998 .hares in the Robert Dunsmuir Company. Limited, which controls the Esriuimalt & Nanaimo railway, Wellington collierie?. Cornox and  Extension mines collieries, coasting  steamers and an immense amount of  ether property.

A special examiner of the pension office is at  Oswego, New York, investigating the  matter and his report will be kept on  file at the bureau in readiness for submission* to congress in case that body  should call for it. Commissioner Evans  explained today that he had no authority  to revoke the woman's pension.  United States Is Favorable.  WASHINGTON, November 8.��� Tho  answer of the United States government to the French overture respecting  France's movement in Turkish waters  is undei stood to have been conveyed  already by Mr. Hays to M Margery, the  French charge here, and to have consisted of a statement that the United  King Bestows Honors.

NEW YORK, ..ovem.ber 8. ��� Bob  Fitzsimmons, the pugilist, has finally  foresworn allegiance to king Edward  and became an American citizen.The papers were issued to him by judge Aspin-  wall of Brooklyn, before whom Fitzsimmons appeared in a fashionable suit  and baggy overcoat with a silk hat in his  hand.  "What is your occupation?" asked the  court.  "I am an actor now, sir," replied the  blonde giant.  Fitzsimmons has lived in the United  States thirteen years and took out his  first papers eight years ago.  Had Money to Burn.  HOT SPRINGS, Arkansas, November  8.���Harry Toughbaugb, now undor arrest in St. Louis, is believed to be the  party who flooded this city with Helena,  Montana, bank notes. It is claimed that  Toughbaugh while here had his hair,  eyebrows, and moustache dyed by a barber. He is thought to have left here  Wednesday or Thursday of last week.  Tho officials of the banks here estimate  that no less than $2000 of the stolen  bank notes were left in this city.  PEKIN, November 8.���A violent dispute with M. Paul Lessar, Russian minister to   China,   over  tho   Manchurian"  treaty appears to have been the immediate cause of the   death   of  Li   Hung  Chang.    The diplomatic events preceding   this   tragic   climax  have  enabled  Japan for a moment to frustrate the designs of Russia.  A  fentnight ago  the  Japanese legation secured a reliable outline of the terms of the treaty and thereupon demanded that the Chinese plenipo-  tentaries officially lay before them thc  text, basing this demand upon the allegation that Japan's interests were,involved in- any change of the status of  Manchuria.    The  Chinese  plenpotenta-  ries refused to comply-with thc demand.  Thereupon   the   Japanese   government  from   Tokio   communicated   with   tho  southern viceroys and induced them to  use tlieir influence wkith  the empress  dowager   against   tho   treaty.     In   the  meantime the empress dowage_r instructed Li Hung Chang to communicate tha  treaty; after   certain   modifications,   to"  the ministers of the powers and,,if they'  did not object, to sign the same. Li Hung  Chang visited M. Lessar and explained  to him the instructions.    The Russian  minister strongly objected to revealing  the text of the treaty to the ministers  of tho other powers and a stormy interview ensued. Li went home in a violent  passion     and      hemorrhage      endued,  which      the      doctors attributed .   to  thc over-exertion of a weakened system.  While those things were happening iu  Pekin the southern viceroys sent to the  empress dowager a memorial against the  treaty.  .On receiving it she telegraphed  to Li Hung Chang countermanding thn  order to sign.     This' instruction   came  after Li Hung Chang had become unconscious.   When M. Lessar endeavored to  have Li Hung Chang's.seal affixed to tha  treaty,   Chou   Fu,  provincial   treasurer  had   arrived   from  Pao Ting Foo  and  taken charge of the seals   as   the   temporary successor (to Li Hung Chang.  PEKIN, November 8.���-The flag of the  United States was the only one half  masted in Pekin today. The government  and the family of Li Hung Chang will  burn paper effigies tomorrow, in accordance with custc-m, for the use of hia  spirit in the other world. The street is  hung with mourning emblems. All tho  a-t.ei-dar.ts at the; yamen are richly attired and many of them gaudily dressed.  Today musicians beat arums about th<.  hotise." Li Hung Chang's estate will remain intact for the use of his eldest son,  who will provide for the other members  of the family.  Yuan Shi Kai's successor in the governorship of the province of Shan Tung  is an unknown man who has been koM-  =ing=an-unimportant=of_ice-as=grain-com���  missioiier in one of the inland towns of  the province. He will be watched with  the deepest, interest and the peace of  China will largely depend upon his  course.  Wang Wen Shao, who is 74 years of  age and deaf, was never rated as a  statesman or a diplomatist. His appointment is probably temporary. ^Tele-  graphic communication with princo  Ching was obtained today. Ho is hastening to meet the court. After consultation  he will return with Fang Wen Shao,  who is accompanying the court, whicli  is now five days' journey from Kai Fong  Fu.  Emperor Kwang Su, report says, is asserting himself and leading the imperial cortege on horseback. Native papers declare that he proposes to inaugurate a revival of military spirit, assuming the honorary pe-sit'.on of coni-  nandor-in-chief and wearing a uniform.  They also assert that he will compel tha  nobles to follow his example to take  military positions and to study military  science. A private letter from a European ne.w in Tai Yuen Fu says that, two  British officers and a party of Indian,  soldiers who encountered the imperial  precession were suspected of unfriendly  motives and were detained as prisoners  hy tho t-mperor's body guard for a few  days. Apparently this was an exploring  party commanded by major Manifrad  and captain Hunter which has been operating in that region for some time.  Reception to the Delegates.

CRANBROOK -- The building of  Marysville and the great increase in  importance of Perry creek, has brought  about a condition which demands a  bridge o.er the St. Maryjs river near  Iho mouth of that creek. This, with a  road built from CranbrooU to the Mission ro.d, a little more than five miles,  would give a short route from Cranbrook to both Perry creek and Marysville:  NEW WESTMINSTER���Some weeks  ago the Great Northern'railway had an  expert here looking ovei the timbcj*"  limits.

Truxton Beale, tho former  minister to Greece and Psrsia. was interviewed a few days ago in regard to the  safety of travelers in foreign countries,  apropos of the capture of Miss Ellen M.  Stone by brigands in a lonely pass m the  . mountains near the Turkish-Bulgarian  ���frontier, on September ��, ho emphasized  the fact that, although such a largo portion ot the laws of civilized states are  devised to insure the safety of life and  property, it.was surprising to find such  comparative security in many of the  semi-civilized and .uncivilized portions  of tho globe.  "In many parts of Siberia,' Central  . Asia, and China," Mr. Realo said, "you  can travel with as much safety as yo'ii  can in this country. This condition oi  affairs has been brought about in many  strange ways, seme of them which arc-;  historic. For instance, in the southern  * part of Persia, the Zil E Sultan (Shadow  of tho King) made life and property se-  !* euro by holding the tribe in which the  depredations were committed responsible  ���for-theract H^w6ul_l~go~in~"the~n_iasr  of the tribe where the murder or th.  robbery transpired and, after picking out  twelvo or sixteen of the men, would  make an example of them. Holes would  bo dug in a semicircle in which tho victims were placed so that they were  forced to face one another, and then  gatch���a.sort of plaster which the Persians use on . their walls���would be  poured in and the tribesmen left to die.  No ons was allowed to alleviate their  sufferings by giving them water. The  members of one tribe- once tried to remonstrate with tho Shah for this barbarous treatment, on the ground that tho  men taken were innocent, but he replied:  / "Think what I would have done, had J  happened to catch the guilty." After resorting to this means for a short time, he  made tho caravan route down to the Persian Gulf as safe for travelers as Markel  street is to the people of San Francisco.  In fact, you can lie out at night on thc-  Creat Desert and watch the moon rise  over the mountains of ancient Media,  and enjoy tho solitude of the desert  with all the sr��nse of security and safety  that you could if you were admiring the  Golden Gate from the Cliff house.  "Of course, occasionally a life is lost,  but that is rarely the case in that part  of tho East. Now and then the Lurs  from Luristan travel down across the  caravan route with their flocks, and, if  they meet you, the worst they will do  is to cut down your baggage from your  camels and mules, and sometimes run  them oft'.    But the seventy of the Zil's  . punishment, and the fact that, he make's  the tribji'responsible for any depredation  that occurs in their midst, has effectually  stamped out all assaults on travelers.  But ail parts of the East are not so safe.  For instance, in going from Badghis to  Babylon, and thence to the Mediterranean Sea, your property and life are in  constant danger, sometimes from mere  3'obbers, but for the most part from religious fanatics, who attack you when  they find that you are a koffer���that is,  unclean or an unbeliever."  When asked whether Central Asia and  most parts of Siberia were sale to travelers, Mr. Beale said:  "Yes. The Russians havo dono wonders to make life and property secure in  all parts of Central Asia, which  they  .have recently conquered. Occasionally,  murders and robberies are committed,  but these are unusual. They content  themselves with sneaking up on you  from behind when you are traveling in  your sleigh, and cutting down your baggage" and looting it.   Ia fact, even in  countries like Chinese Turkestan, wliich  aro outside of the pa... ot Russian influence, one is comparatively safe. I have  traveled with perfect safety for weeks  among the Kirghiz, who, iu Spencer's  'Sociology' are described as being a  very fierce race. I have gone into their  tents, lain-down, and rested sometimes  night and day. They might have harmed  me, for they must have known that a  traveler has largr'sums of money on his  person. To show how much they needed  and valued money, I once hired a Kirghiz to,guide mc through a Siberian storm  to-another Kirghiz encampment, and,  when I reached my desiination, I gave  him what would amount to about seven  or eight dollars here. He danced around  my tent with delight and gratitude. During my stay among these people not an  article of mine was stolen. In fact,  when I perfoi med my daily ablutions, I  found it difficult to keep the -men and  women out of my tent, as they seemed  fearful lest [ might steal something  wliich belonged to them."  "Did you ever cross Afghanistan?"  "No; for such a journey is fraught  with peril for the traveler. I looked  longingly over the Oxus, wishing that 1  could travel across Afghanistan to reach  the beautiful valley of Cashmere.- But  few Russians or other Europeans who  enter it never return.   ___/  ..  '��� ���. ��� *".*.-  "Years_agoT_a���Swedish-explore-^-went"  into the adjoining cottiitry ��� Chinese  Turkestan. He was traveling to one of  the little provinces, into which the country was broken up in these days, to give  a present to the khaii. But, unfortunately,- he met another khan on tho way who  demanded the gift for himself. The Swedish explorer demurred, ahd the impatient khan immediately ordered him  killed.  "Six years ago. two Frenchmen, who  were sent out by the Fronch Academy,  were also killed. They had had relations  with the women of the village;- and further aroused the anger cf the natives by  an unpardonable act. They went into  the drove of horses owned by the village  and picked out one for themselves, to  replace another that had been stolen  from them. The villagers set upon them,  and when tho Frerichmc.n jumped into  the river they rah along tho banko and  stoned them to death I me1; a Cossack  who had been with tin--,Frenchmen, and  who succeeded in making nis .escape.  This incident reminds .one of Kipling's  story, 'The Man Who Would Be King.'  CORPORATION OFTHECITYOF NELSON  BY-LAW NO. 101.

BOOK BIDDING  SP��G!Al nUiED 81AM E00_(S  SPECIAL BUU0 FORMS  The directors cf tho Yeliows.ono  mine have decided to close the mine  down for the winter. The miners* havi  be'en laid off aiid them aro but a few  men left at t.he property getting things  in shupo. It is reported the rtlroctor..  have under consideration tho adoption  of a moro economic method of treating  the Yellowstone ore. There are also  said to be bodies.of low grade oro on  the property, which, while it would  harly offer much of a margin on milling treatment, would yet give good returns on cyaniding. While the consideration of the improved methods for  treatment is the principal reason for  the shut down, the bad condition of tho  Yellowstone road is said to have hastened matters, as tbe road is too heavy  to permit of the moving of concentrates.  The strike made recently on the Hideaway fraction, in t.he vicinity of the  Yellowstone property, continues to improve in appearance. The Hideaway is  a small sized claim lying in between  the Yellowstone, the Marie and the  Yosemite. A number ot assessments  have been done on a large ledge which  runs through the center of the property,  but with rather indifferent iosults. The  recent strike is upon a spur which runs  from the main ledge. The discovery was  made at a point on iho spur about .UO  feet from the main ledge and consists  of a body of Quartz which varies in size  from ono to four feet in width. Assays  made from the decomposed ledge matter give returns of $..fi in gold and from  the solid quartz assays as high as $15  have been secured. A few shots were  also put in the ledge at the point of contact with the spur. At this point tli 3  ledge is ten feet wide and shows up well.  The Hideaway proporty was at one time  under bond to the Yellowstone Mining  Company Their work was all done on  the main ledge which ihen had an-indicated value of 14 feet. !t is said tho  holders ol the bond got a sansple assay  of ?8 across the entire face of the ledge,  but for some reason the bond was not  taken up. The Hideway ledge runs into  a oorner of tho Mamie property and on  through tho Yosemite.  Rev James Turner of tho Methodist  Church, ono of Kootenay's pioneer  preachers, is in Nelson. Since leaving  here he has been in many lands, and on  his return was astonished at the growth  ot the town and at the fact that all .it  his old-time friends were alive and glad  to see hint. While in Nelson he will bo  the guest of John A. Turner. o  Anniversary services will be held at  the Methodist church tomorrow, the  (sermons morning and evening being  preached by Rev. James Turner, one of  the pioneers of Kootenay.. The following  special music will be rendered by the  choir. Morning anthem: "Sun of My  Soul," Hall. Evening anthem: "Yo  Shall Dwell in the Land." Stainer; and  quartett: "Sing on. Oh Blissful Music,"  Swaney.  A. L. Davenport arrived iu Nelson  yesterday from Spokane. He came in  to make a payment upon the bond  which he has on the Bayonne group  of mines at the head of Summit creek.  The payment due amounts to ?2000, and  will be turned over to the locators of  the property on Monday. Mr. Davenport  has a email crew of men with him  whom he will take out to the property  next week. Provisions for six months  will be taken in and work will be continued all winter. Marc Gilliam will  have charge of the work during Mr  Davenport's absence.  A meeting of the assayers of the  province was held in the' Hotel Phair  last ever ing for the purposo ot taking  the preliminary steps toward the organization of the British, Columbia Institute* of Assayers.

The fiscal years of this  company ends on March 31st, and although tho report of the directors  shows a tidy balauco upon the year's  operations they did. not, feei warranted  in declaring a dividend. The mining  operations cf the company show a  balance on the right side of ��5891 is  6d, and to this is added interest on deposits, etc., amounting to ��331 7s,  making a total of $6222 lis 6d. The deductions made from this include London offlco expenses of ��.'.088 7s 3d,  mine management ��1.37 35s, and sundry expenses of ��1725 _5s lOd, which  leave 'tho profit on the ycur's operations  of ��1970 J3s fid. Against this, the directors decided to reduce capital expenditure by writing off ��498 Uf _0d for  depreciation. This brought the balance  down to ��1.72 Is 7d, to which was added the credit balance of ��-428 9s E>d  brought forward from the previous year.  Thi.. gave a total balance of ��1900 lis  from which the directors wrote off  ��1500 development, leaving a balance  of ��400 lis to be carried forward to  the next account.  In their explanation of the accounts  the directors express regret that the  condition of the mine did not peniiit  of larger shipments being made, the  increase over the previous year being  but 125 tons. A further factor which  affected the results was the continuous  fall in tho price of lead, representing  about ��4 per tun. and as about 303  tons of lead were extracted from the  ore they point out but for the price of  lead tho result would have been much  more satisfactory.  Development work upon the property  has been followed up energetically. The  main tunnel was extended to 1670. feet,  and the main shaft from tunnel No. 5  conrected therewith, and intermediate  levels Nos G, 7, 8, and 9 were started.  In the No. 6 the ore chute was found  and various raises put up to connect  with tunnel 5, but up to the date of the  making of the report the ore had not  been found in tunnels 7, 8, and 9, nor  in the main shaft. In this connection  the engineer of the company, E. R.  Woakes. is cited as of tho opinion that  a bad fault has occurred between tunnels 6 and 7. but that the ore chute that  was found iu the upper levels was continuous in depth, coupled wilh this a  NELSON.

The output of the mine for the fiscal  year was 733 tons of galena of a gross  value of ��12,0S7,7s, and 677 tons of carbonates of a gross value' of ��5595 (>s  7d. Of this there were 230 tons of ore  on hand of a value of ��2145 3s, so that  the rctual output of the property for  the year was USO tons of a value of  ��15.537 10s 7d. The gross value of tha  galena per ton was ��16 9s 6a, and of  the carbonates ��8 5s 3d. Tito average  cost per ton of mining, sorting, haulage, etc., is given as ��3 14s 6d, and th-3  cost of freight and treatment ��4 19s  9d, making a total of ��8 14s.3d.  An ir teres.ing. feature is the report  of the directors to the effect that the  increase of lis Kcl in. thc cost of mining,  sorting, haulage, etc.. is due to tho  higher wages ��� granted by the terms of  settlement of 0 the strike. This would  be interesting as bearing on the increased cost of mining as a result of  the strike compromise were it not for  the fact that, the-director? also state  that, the Queen Bess faulted badlv.  This admission opens up the question  as to whether tho increased cost per  ton was due entirely to the advanco  made Iv tho wages of the miners or  whether the increase was in a measure  due to tlio-increased trouble of finding  the vein in the. lower levels or the  tearching for it since it does not appear to have, been found.  The repor lof the directors suggests  the i ecessity for some outlet for the  ores of-the province other than that  offered by tho I'nited States smelter  trust and the few independent smolters  in the Urited States. The directors recite that great difficulty was experienced during the year in getting ore  smelted, owing to tho -action of the  American smelters, and that as a result many of t.he mines in the district  had to close down. They themselves  consider they were fortunate in obtaining a contract fat thi. Nelson  smelter) for smelting all the company":,  ores at slightly increased charge. This  they explain accounted for tho increased  cost of freight and"treatment, amounting to 2s Id per ton.  THE CITY AUDITOR'S REPORT  Receipts and Disbursements.
