The only  public events, is the sale"of goods and  the dance in the evening under the auspices of the committee of the church  of England. A traveling comedy company will play in the auditorium in  the evening.  A numerous attendance at last night's  Knights of Pythias ball, which was a  very successful affair. ,  Today's arrivals include J. S. Wilson  of Nelson."   .,.**,.  Fatal Accident at Sandon.  SANDON, November 27.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Louis Kroton was killed  and Mike Gvora injured on the K. & S.  railway near the Last Chance bridge  today. The men were employed.on the  section, and were doing some track  work when a rock rolled down on top  of them. Gvora is not seriously injured.  Both men are Galicians.  Ledge Cut on Tuesday.  J. C. Drewry arrived in Nelson yesterday from the True Blue mine, near  Kaslo, Lhe development of which he  has in hand for the Canadian Goldfields  Company. He is in high feather over  a very" important strike which was  made in the lower level iu the past few  days and one which should have a very  marked effect on the stock of the company. The preveious showing in the  True Blue was counted pretty good in  itself, but it sinks into comparative insignificance when compared with tho  showing in Lhe lower level. A week ago  Mr. Drewry thought his company had a  big thing.witlfa 16-inch stringer of high  grade copper ore "in the " 50-foot "level  which assayed 20 per cent copper,, with  gold values ranging from'$2 to ?8 per  ton, but on Tuesday the ledge was cut  at a depth of 140 feet when the miners  broke into a body of rich ore 4% feat  wide.  It is too early at present to say just  what the ore will carry at this point-  but in appearance it is identical with  that in the rich stringer above. Should  tests upon it prove the larger body in  the lower level to carry the same values  as those obtained in the upper workings  they wil stamp Tuesday's strike as the  most sensational in this season's mining operations throughout the province.  The ledge in which this pay chute occurs has a width of several feet in the  upper workings, the bulk of which will  stand shipping as soon as the property  is equipped with a tramway, but selected  ore from it can be shipped even under  present conditions. It is what the company designates as second-class ore,  -Dut=samples=at^4i=per-*=eent=copper=*with=  small cold values.  Tuesday's strike will not make any  difference, with respect to thc True  Blue's shipments this winter, as arrangements have been made to get out  all the ore possible over the rawhide  trail while the snow lasts. The output  of the True Blue this winter will come  to the Nelson smelter, Mr. Drewry having signed a contract with the local  smelter upon the basis of $4.50 -per ton  for freight and treatment from Kaslo..  This is considered a very advantageous  arrangement for the mine, and one  which should leave a handsome margin  over the cost of mining and treatment.  Among the large holders of stock in  thc Canadian Goldfields arc Messrs.  Gooderham & Blackstock of Toronto,  Hodgson of Montreal. R. K. Hope, registrar at Hamilton, Thomas Wilson of  Clarence, Ontario, Alc.v Fridham ��� of  Grenville, Quebec, J. W. Graham of  Montreal, and J. C. Drewry of Rossland, and they will have cause for  thanksgiving whether they know it or  not.

Thc trend of public opinion remains strongly in the direction of  the settlement cf the canal question on  any terms which will enable the American government Lo construct the waterway and promote the welfare of the  world.  :   ���  Services for Count "Wildenburg..

PARIS, November 27.���-The publication in tho Matin and other morning  papers November 26th of alleged ex-  rtacts from the confidential report of  general Voyren, the former commander  of the French troops in China, has revived interest in that alleged looting  in Pekin. In a published interview M.  Pichon, who was the French minister  to China at the time of the Boxer outbreak, denies that any women connected  with the legations engaged in the looting. After Pekin had been relieved he  ordered that all baggage of French people leaving Pekin be searched.

KANSAS CITY, Missouri, November  27.���A special to the Star from Medicine  Lodge, Kansas, says: David Nation was  today granted a divorce from his wife,  Mrs. Carrie Nation, the joint smasher.  The court exonerated Mrs. Nation from  the charge of cruelty to her husband  and divided the property. Mrs. Nation  said that one reason she fought the proceedings was that she wished to continue to share the pension money  drawn by her husband.  MEDICINE LODGE, Kansas, November 27.���Judge Giilett granted the divorce upon the ground of gross neglect  of duty. When Mrs. Nation first started  out on her career of joint smashing  over a year ago Mr. Nation seemed to  be in sympathy with her raids, but  when she spent all of her time away  from her home crusading or serving sentences in jail for destroying property  he went to the home of his daughter in  Indiana and lived. He was Mrs. Nation's  second husband and was nearly seventy  years old. TU? couple had lived together  -for many years.  DETROIT, November 27.���One of the  most disastrous wrecks in> the history  of the V/abash railroad or any other  Michigau railroad occurred at Seneca,  Michigan, a small way station about  thirty miles southwest of Detroit between 7 and V.30 tonight." Train No.S,  an immigrant train, with two engines  west bound collided under a full head  of steam with train No. 4, east bound,  about one mile from Stneca. The result  was that five or six coaches on the immigrant train were crushed and its load  of human freight sent into eternity in"  a moment, while oue coach on train No."  4, which consisted of a parlor car, dining and baggage car was also telescoped,  and four dead bodies ha.e been taken  from the wreck so far: . It is not  known how many people there were on  the. emigrant train, but the death list  will be anywhere from U0 to 130. The  people oh that train were caught like  rats m a trap and ciushed. Then the  wreck caught fire and those who were  not instantly killed were slowly roasted  to death, au'd none of the spectators, who  quickly gathered from thc farm houses  nearby, were able to give aid. the  whole emigrant train was soon con-"  suhied by the-flames and every ptrson  oh the traia, it is reported, was killed.  The.larmers residing along the track  rushed among the blazing mass to rescue those who they thought might "be  alive. The bodies hauled out of the  wreck were taken to nearby farm houses,,  which are filled with dead and a large  number of injured were cakeirto a hospital at Peru, Indiana. Along the tiack  long lines of burned bodies he covered  with blankets, presenting a gruesome  sight. It'may be that the exact number  of killecL-or- wcundeJ-, will,. never be  known. At present it is .impossible to  get anything resembling a list of Lhe  injured from Seneca. It is said here  that the accident was the result of a  misunderstanding of orders. It is reported in Seneca that No. 4 shoula have  waited at Seneca station and No. IS  should have taken the siding. This was  not done. Then tho crash came. The  net result is that one whole train, No.  J3, is burned, tbe engines are complete  wrecks on both trains and on No. 4 the  coaches between the dining and thc  baggage cars are crushed into Icindiing  wood.

'���    The~Victoriari'03t7^ditcd by David R  13ogle, formerly of New Denver, has a  fine sense of humor.   He says the recent  public meeting in the Victoria theatre  was attended "in fact and intention" by  members   representing    70,000    people.  David, there is a rlace called "hades"  that is said to uo paved with "good intentions."   So with your public meeting  in tho Victoria theatre.   It was attended  "in fact" by McPhillips and Helmcken  and Hayward and *'Dave" Iliggins and  McBrido and in  "ir.xtntion"  by Curtis  and Tatlow and (Tiftord.    All these "in  fact"   and   "intention"   spellbinders   do  not represent 70,000 people.    I-i'ayward  no more represents Esquimalt than does  Poolcy;   McPhillips   and   Helmcken  no  moro    represent    Victoria    than    does  ."Dick"   Hall.    Wo  will   admit  "Dave'.'  Iliggins represents some one, for he represents   "Dave"   Higgius.    Curtis   imagines he represents the whole of Kootr  enay and part of Yale;' but he merely  represents a few "wild cat" mines and  townsites  with   the   Crow's   Nest  Coal  Barons of Toronto thrown in.    Tatlo\y  no   more   represents   Vancouver   than  does   "Joe"   Martin  or  Hugh  Gilmour,  McBride does not even live among the  people he represents, and poor old man  Gilford  does 'not  know  how  he  came  to defeat "Winchesccr" Brown at New  Westminster.   One of the most promin7  ont politicians and public men in Kootr  enay  attended  that public meeting in  Victoria, and his opinion of it expressed  in a few words is:    "The meeting was  " not largely attended; the only speech  "worth listening to was made by Gor--  "don Hunter, who riduculed  the pre-  "tentiens of both McPhillips and Mc-  " Bride; fully half of those present left  ". the theatre' before the vote was taken  " on the resolutions.   In my opinion the  " meeting was a very tame affair."  Vancouver, McPhillips gave the lie diri  ect to Hugh  Gilmour,  who  is  one of  Vancouver's four representatives in tho  legislative  assembly.     Gilmour   stated  that McPhillips'had voted against railway competition m the Boundary country.   McPhillips said it -was a lie.   Gil-  mbui   produced   the   journal's "of   the  house aud proved  hisk statements correct.   Continuing Giluiour said:    "What  " a nice coalition Curtis' and McPhillips  " and MeBude wculd make.   At the last  "session they voted together just three  "times, and one of the times was on  "the game law."   Those three.men aie  acting together now,''not-because -they  believe iu the same political'principles,  but  simply  because   they ��� want, to  be  revenged �� on . Jaraes   Dunsmuir.    They  want to turn down Dunsmuir because  he wont stand for che'Vi'V. & E. subr  sidy.    There is no hatred so, bitter as  that engendered thruugh- the .baulking  of schemes to make money.   The V. V.  & E. subsidy schemers have so far been  baulked   in  all   their 1 attempts  to  got  tntir bauds1 intu, tho provincial  treasury, and the-man who is held responsible for the good work is premier Dunsmuir.    The  vct'es ' and- proceedings   of  tiie"  legislative   assembly    show   that  Smith Curtis has nothing whatever in  common with McPhillips and Helmcken  and Tatlow and Cxaiden and Hayward  and Murphy and McBride.-   The seven  last-named hold to views' that are radically Jiffeient to cnose held by Curtis;  then   common 'ground is the granting  of a big subsidy to a bhert piece of railway that when built will be owned and  operated' in,the interests of a railway  system that is milking Canada in the  interest of aliens.   This may be a principle that overshadows all other principles   involved   in   good   government;  but  it   will   be' haid'to  convince the'  people that it is an> thing more than a  clear case of "graft."  to  to  to  to  We will offer our complete stock of Furs at prices never before equalled in this city.

Thei Fvletc,her-Seloui=j*  gang haye so decided, and as there are  four sure votes'in the gang, what they  agree on goes. The cityv engineer has  very decided views of civic ownership  of an electric power plant, and his estimate of the cost of such a plant is well,  within $125,000. This is not in accordance  with  the estimates  of the West  Kootonay Power & Light Company,  and as the estimates of that company  are   those   used   in   argument   by   the  Metchqr-Selous   gan^r,  ,the   gang/ will  cut off the head of the city enginer in  order to prove that his estimates are  wrong. The city engineer has been in  office since the summer of 1897, and all  the  public  work  done  in  Nelson  has  been in accordance with plans prepared  by   him.   Whether  the  work  done  has  been done as well as it could have been,  is a question of opinion. But there is  one thing that is in the engineer's favor,  which   even, the   Fletcher-Selous   gang  will   be  forced  to, admit,  and  that is  that A. L. McCulloch, as city engineer,  has been an honest and upright official.  If he has erred, it has been to protect  the city's interests.' j. ��as is a qualification that no one will ever charge any  member   of   the   Fletcher-Selous   combination with  having to an abnormal  extent. While mayor Fletcher has the  authority to suspend the city engineer,  and :alderman  Selous .and. his two. coadjutors-in the council can make the  suspension final,* the electors of Nelson  have it in their power to retire mayor  Fletcher and alderman Selous, and they  v/ill surely do it in January.-  ��� The first number of the Marysville  Tribune is to hand. Whie Marysville  is npt a largo town and is not .an'old  town, the Tribune looks as if it had be^n  printed .a hundred years. "Marvelous  Marysville" and its newspaper will be  heard of from thic time on.  Of Lighting Plants!'  The people-of Nelson.are confronted  with an issue that they mustdecioe for  themselves. The ' issue is municipal  ownership of utilities/ It ,i& an issue  that is being squarely met in other  cities, not only in Canada, but in every  civilized nation throughout the world.  Below will be found two ai tides on the  question.j"The.first; is fiom, the Toronto Glober-orie'-of'-'the most ��� reliable  newspapers .in J ^Canada _ The other ' is  from a well-kriov^n resident of Nelson.  Municipal , management of the' gas  servicers not an,.experiment, writes F.  S. Spence, continuing his consideration  of tlie'present situation in Toronto. It  is rapidly growing, in public favor and  produceing-satisfactory results .in nearly every part of' the world. ��� Municipal  gas plants are in, successful, operation  in the, cities of Mexico' and Yokohama.  Kicardo Bachi, in, Municipal Affairs for  September, 1900, gives," details - "of the  working , of similar _ undertakings .-"in,  nine, Italian.cities. Dr. Milo K. juaitbee  has recently published information concerning 'municipal gas .'works in Bel-  gium.-Holland, Austria, Norway, Sweden',-Switzerland and France.- Of the German cities each having a population  of over 50,000, numbering fifty-four in  all, there are forty-one 'in which the  gas service is owned >and 'operated as  a municipal undei taking..-  , In almost all these cases.the change  from private to public ownership "was  followed by an important reduction in  the price of gas. The examples that have  in them the most 'instruction -and -information for Canadians'are'those of  English-speaking communities. ��� Figures  herein quotdd are not intended ,to' indicate what' the price pf gas ought "to  be in Toronto. They are simply'*pre-  sented as evidence of the practicability  of the municipal method, and as illustrations of the success that has attended its adoption.  Of 661 gas undertakings, in Great  Britain in 1899, authorized,.by .the local  goyernment board, 439" were privately  owned, and 222 were owned and operated by municipalities.- Loans for the  niunicipilization of gas plants had amounted to ��28,614,971, of which"��6,-  74o,715 had been repaid. That municipal  interests of this class are increasing is  shown by the fact that between 1835  and :189a, the investments in ithein increased .'��3,147,000. .'" ������'"..*  - From: evidence presented-before an  imperial government commission^ last  year it. is found, that the ".profits "of the  22 municipal gas* undertakings were  ��1,811,675, or 6.3-per.'cent,.'ahd that-the  nrnflt.Q   roali^n^   K.,   +1.^   ^on''��^i -_^*���_���_-_ f  'I  4>   0^Y^n^7k> tduU CrtnArf- *ns  4k*H0fiii0atA��i  d^Hr ifer/  TELEPHONE.39.

NELSON; November 27 ���[To the Editor of The Tribune.]���The writer has:  been informed hy the'manager of the'  gas company that his company would,  very much like to enter'into a contract-  to siipply the city with gas for operating:  gas engines for producing electric,  power, but the directors do not feel  warranted in expending a large sum of:  money unless they could get a contract,  for five years.

In doing this the corporation Avould be  able to make the power at a lower cose  than they can procure it from either tne  Bonnington Falls company or the gas  company, or from a plant on the Kootenay river, aud owing to the increase  in the make of gas would cheapen the  product, so they could afford to supply  the gas for light, heat and power to the  citizens at a great deal less price than  what the: gas company is charging at  the present time.  .In large cities in th& East, such as  Toronto, the gas company owing to its  large output is supplying gas at 80 cents  per thousand cubic feet and pay handsome dividends to the stockholders. Iu  England the prices at municipal gas  works aro somewhat lower than the gas  supplied by companies, and vary from  40 cents to 80 cents per 1000 cubic feet,  and most of the plants at the end of  the year hand over to the city a considerable sum of money, the amount being-  the surplus over the cost of manufactur-  .ing the gas, interest on debentures and  W.

MURDERED  HIS   BROTHER  Tor the Eeward Offered.  A brother commissioned to kill  In-other; justice in the hands of one  meted out to the other hy an order tjiat  must be obeyed; man against man, yet  in tho veins of each the same blood, in  the infancy of ea-jh the same father and  mother. Such is the peculiar circumstance that marlce the closing of an  Indian's career in Nevada.    A fugitive  > from the law, with a price of $2,000 upon  his head, Joe Fete &layer of white men  and red men, eJuding vengeance for the  last time, has fallen, shot to thc death,'  a victim of the unerring aim of his  brother. The deed was done by command of the Washoe tribe. No incident  in modem history so clearly illustrates  the strange stoicism of thu Indian race^  as this. Among no other people coiud"  so unnatural' and &hnddersomo a tragedy have had its counterpart, for, while  men of kin have too often slain one  another, it is, happily, yet to be recorded that a white man has deliberately  o hunted to the death a brother, and  coldly,  and without a trace of human  ' emotion Taken his life���furthermore,  taken it for pay. it-seems, indeed, incomprehensible, but it is nevertheless  the case, that tha brother of Joe Pete  was not only willing, but eager, to send  his soul into eternity, hence his prompt  acquiescence whou the members of his  tribe appointed him to cairy out their  wishes. He has iosfno time in putting  in a claim foi thc rewards, most of  which specified that the. sums would be  paid for the apprcnension of the criminal, dead or alive. Cupidity, rather  than revenge, seems to have beeu the  ' impulse that urged the Indian fratricide  to his task, aud underlying the real motive lay the treachery that ever lurks  in the Indian nature.  - Nearly every town in the state of Nevada has its little suburb of Indian  camps. .Bardiie**\*iville, . m Douglas  ronntv. is ono of tncae. Thc most pros-  perous farmer and stock '-raiser in that  locality is Chris D'augberg, an old German with a large family and many  acres of valuably lands, whose holdings  . arc rated near the million- mark. He  has- several sous. One of these was  named Will. The ranch ailorded a home  for several Indians, who occasionally  worked a little there, but the Indian is  so well treated in Nevada that he contrives to get along" iiuite comfortably  without much lauor.^. Among the Indians frequenting tiie place was Joe  J?et-e,- a"sffapping young buck of twenty,  ~ 'Will Dangberg's ago; a typical "Washoe  full-blood, tall, wfcil proportioned and  pleasing. Young Dangberg took a liking to him, loaning him his gun, ammunition, and sometimes money, as well  as other articles coveted by all Indians  in every tribe. For these kindly favors  Joe Fete professed a great deal of gratitude, but that tho gratitude was merely  assumed to secure further kindness, and  that ho was in reality as treacherous as  any of his tribe was later proven.   One  ���day-during-the-fftU-of-lSM-Will-Dang--  beig, Joe Pete ano 'another Indian were  together in the kitchen of tbe Dangberg  Jumie. No one else was present, and the  truth of What-happened.there will never  be-known, A. shot was heard, and Joe  rete rushed out" of the hose and to the  stables. In the house young Dangberg  lay. dying; past aU human aid, murdered by the red man whom he had generously befriended. The other Indian  could give no intelligible or reliable information of'the al'fair. The perpetrator of the 'crime mounted the first horse  he found in the stables. Fortunately  for him it was one of the fleetest in all  that country of ilset hpr-ses, He fled to  the-mountains, Pubses were swiftly organized, and tlie dust raised by the hoofs  of Tetc'sTiorse was yet discernible at  tlie edge of the valley leading to the  mountain trails when the*start after him  was made. Word, of the killing was  quickly spread and a dozen parties of  determined men touk thc trail. But even  the most determined among them did  not overtake the Indian. They followed  him for days through the mountains  into Alpine county, California, sometimes'doubling on the trail, again Josing  it for hours, only to persist until they  !>ad regained it. After a while they  found the horse where the creature had  fallen from exhaustion.  One by one tho men dropped out of  the chase and returned to their homes,  until .fiually the hunt was maintained  by individuals. Several of these came  upon Pete m the mountains, but the  first knowledge they had of his presence  they were looking into lhe muzzle of his  rifle at very close range and wore compelled to save theii- lives by getting out  of the vicinity.  The state of Nevada offered the usual  reward for the apprehension of the outlaw, Douglas county added to it and the  relations of the murdered boy swelled  the amount until it reached the total of  $20,000. Then the pui&uit was taken up  again with renewea vigor. It lasted for  months and was a failure. Prospectors  and lone herders now and then saw  Pete. Sometimes they felt a bullet from  his rifle cutting thc air close to their  heads, but they did not -succeed in returning the coini'lunent, I-fow Pete  managed to secure ammunition was his  own secret. The white people then decided that their only hope was to use  Indian trailers, which they did. If it  takes a thief to catch a thief, it certainly takes an Indian to catch an In-  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Intorest allowed on deposits. Present rate  threo por cent.  GRANGE V.

They kept him moving fiom one point  to another until, without rest or food,  he could not hold out much longer.  Then, three of the Indians came to  Carson City and suggested a plan to an  attorney. He was to arrange with a  friendly officer of Douglas county to arrest Pete, who would be at a certain  point at a specified time, the ofllcer-to  claim the reward, dividing it with., an  attorney for defending Pete at his trial.  A lawyer was found who would lend  himself to the scheme.  At midnight a deputy sheriff drove to  a desolate canyon outside of Carson,  alone and unarmed, as agreed upon. A  signal was given and from thc darkness  sprang othe forms of Indians, who inspected his outfit, then produced the  prisoner, tattered aud gaunt. He was  put into a cart aud taken to the city  prison. By giving himself up in Ormsby  country he was not forced to await the  time of his trial in the jail of the county  where the- crime was committed, and  evaded the risk of lynching. The transfer was later .made secretly, in the night  under a strong guard. Pete was convicted of murder in the first degree and  the reward was paid. He was locked in  a strong cell. It happened that this cell  had a stoue floor and an underground  tunnle told the-story. Again Pete was  a fugitive. Again big rewards were of-,  fered. Mouths went by. Then began  a series of depredations that were the  terror of all the women and children in  Alpine and Douglas counties. Mysterious  shots were fire-d from unseen sources,  horses were stolen, homes were burned  to the ground..  At a lonely spot on Carson river  lived an old hermit. One day a party  of duck hunters found the bones and  ashes where his cabin had been. A few  weeks ago some Indians rushed into  Markleville, California, with the news  that Pete had visited their camp the  night before, shot his father-in-law and  beaten his old mother to death with a  stone. The situation was now so serious that the .white people called the  leaders --of. the Indians together, told  them about the rewards and said that  they must deliver Joe "Pete, dead or  alive. The red man grunted and went  into powwow for two days. Joe Pete's  own brother John, ~ was tho' orator of  the occasion and swept away the reluctance of the older Indians to give up  one of their number. He was then  commanded to kill his brother. When  the result'of the council was given out  that a decoy would be sent out to bring  tlie murderer iuto camp, the whites  asked governor Sadler of Nevada to prepare requisition papers to bring him  into Nevada jurisdiction, as the capture  was to take place" across the California  line. Joe Pete's brother started on the  trail. One morning, just as the light of  a new day was piercing thc thick  growLh of trees and bushes, John' saw  the familiar figure of his brother in the  path. He was apparently well fed and  certainly well clothed, and carried two  rifles and cartridge belts. From a tree  two thin puffs of rifle smoke rose in the  -aiiv���The-stillnessr-sharpij-broken���was-  followed by thc sound of feet quickly  crashing their way to the dead man's  side. To make doubly certain his deed,  the living* Indian stooped over the prostrate form of the. fallen one and sent a  dagger into his heart. Thc reward will  ���be paid. And so it lias been proven by  the records of Nevada that for money  a Washoe Indian may violate all of human ty's instincts.  Gloomy Trade Prospect?.  NEW YORK, November 27.���According to the Loudon correspondent of the  Tribune, the Daily Mail, whicli has been  inquiring into the cause of the trade depression in German says that many of  the great merchants of yesterday stand  today ruined, manufacturing circles are  full of hungry men, numbers of works  are closed altogether and others are  greatly reducing their output, and the  stocks of the German iron works are  being sold in Belgium and England for  what they will fetch. Germany attempted too much and is reaping the inevitable harvest. Bad finance, over capitalization and excess of credit are mentioned as causes. In England the general  trade outlook is worse than at any time  since  1894.  Activity Among Insurgents.

THE CHINESE EXCLUSION AOT  Minister Wu on the Subject,  WASHINGTON, November 27.���Wu  Ting Fang, the Chinese minister called  upon president Roosevelt today. It was  the flrst time he had seen the president  since he took the oath of office at Buffalo. In the course of an interview which  took place in the cabinet room, the  re-enaotment of the Chinese exclusion  act was discussed. When the Chinese  minister emerged from the White  House, he declined to tell a group of  newspaper men whether his government  was protesting against the re-enactment  of the exclusion law. "All we want,"  said he, "is justice and fairness." As  he was saying this the minister was  greeted by senator Foster of Washington, who is himself -very much interested in the act. "Senator," said the  minister, turning to chim, "you' are a  fair man; .remember that justice and  right have neither, color nor race. - We  do not ask for favors, we only ask for  equality." In the course of his conversation with the newspaper men minister Wu suggested that he would be  .willing to meet any three of the American editors who favored Chinese exclusion and debate the question before an  imnartial tribunal.

Ostensibly Chin  Kai Yut's-mission to the-United" States  is that of joining the Chinese, embassy  at Washington, but it is rumored that in  reality he is here to defeat the proposition to re-enact the Chinese exclusion  act.

The order for the  amendment was made with costs in  th.Q cause.  Work on the Lardo branch is now  moving ahead again. The 500 foot trestle, about three miles this side ot the  second crossing, is now completed and  the steel is now laid to the second  crossing. This trestle has caused the  most. delay and now that it is completed there is every chance of the road  being finished during the early part of  the winter. A temporary structure Is  being put in to cross tlie Lardo at the  second crossing, the piles being driven  in the bed of the river and caps laid  upon them. This will have to be replaced  by a truss bridge in the spring, but  the present make-shift will assist in  the completion of the work.  v Next week The Tribune will move  into the brick building on West Baker  especially erected to house it by Alec  McDonald, the Forty-nine creek ma i.  The men working in the mines stand  by The Tribune, and some of the men  who rustle money to keep the boys at  work in the mines see to it when the  pinch comes that it has a roof over,its  head. Good staying qualities are almost as good as a big bank account.  One of the reasons assigned for so  many of the Italians quitting work on  the grade of the Lardo branch is that  a considerable number of .them became  poisoned by eating the red fish with  which the stream is full. Whenever they  had a chance the Italians on the work  insisted on boarding themselves, and  in almost every case in which they were  permitted to do so the red fish formed  their .chief food staple. All were fish  that came to their net and the result  was that a number of them were taken  violently ill with symptoms of poisoning and  left the grade.  G. O. Buchanan of Kaslo was in Nelson yesterday for the first time in quite  a while. In fact, he was in doubt as  to what kind of a reception he would  get if he did come. The sheriff mig'at  "nail him*', for neglecting to obey a summons to present himself as a grand  juror; and the health authorities.might  take him in charge as a suspect from  the Bonner's . Ferry , small-pox zone.  ���>But he came and went as he came. Mr.  Buchanan is of the opinion that the  health authorities should enforce the  health regulations vigorously, and more  especially the one regarding vaccination.  B. C. Riblet has returned form a trip  to the Silver Hill mine m the Crawford  Bay district.. He says work upon the  tramway is well advanced and that it  should be completed and in operation  by the middle of December. Work has  now been commenced on a 400 ton ore  bunker at the landing. This is designed so; that two cars can be loaded  at the same time, the ore entering each  car from three chutes. In this way it  will be possible to load a barge of cars  in half an hour, so that there will be  no handling of the ore from the time  it leaves the bunker until it arrives at  the smelter at Trail. Between the end  of-the-tram line and the bunker there  is a gap of about nine miles over which  the ore-has to be teamed, but it is not  unlikely tliat. some . improved: method  of moving/this ore will be found in  the near future, the feeling being rather  firmly rooted. that the C. P. R. will  build' thev_projected line from Marysville in'!*Ea'st 'Kootenay through to  Kootenay lake via "Crawford creek.  A. L. Davenport has decided to take  in another toh'of supplies to the Bayonne mine'at the"1 head of Summit creek,  so-that there' will be no shortage in the  spring O. F, Kiebcl, the mining expert,  spent several days at the mine withii  the past week and expressed himself  as very favorably impressed with the  showing. He is the representative of  Ohio men Who are interested in the development of the property. The present  program for development includes the  driving of a 150 foot tunnel, which will  tap the vein at a depth of 50 feet and if  this shows the property up in a way  such as anticipated work upon a com-..  ��� prehensive scale will be undertaken  next summer." The trail "from Kootenay river is  now put at 25 miles in  'length and for the convenience of travelers Mr. Davenport has erected two  cabins at intervals along the trail, as  well as one on the Kootenay river end.  These   will   be   provisioned,   so   that  =when=the=going=becomes=difiicult=it=will=  be possible to make the property in easy  stages.  iiiiriii��mrim��mm"rri��i>Yir��riTi'>>*^irfa->na7<^  ..... _~:7:'-.. .^-.������_.-.r,-.-.^ ,- -ViTnf rf,ry'  ^^s^s^^^^^^fs^^a^s^^s^^^^^aa^^a^^^.  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  BYERS & C  ESTABLISHED 1892  &.

He does  not take kindly to the  legal paragraph which appeared in the  Miner of yesterday respecting the settlement of the case of West vs.  Buchanan, in that is was made to appear  that he paid the full amount of West's  claim as well as his own costs rather  than have the case go to the supreme  court of Canada after a judgment had  been  given   in  his  favor  by  the  full  court of the province. Tbe case was an  action brought by West for $856 under  an   assignment  of  a   jogging  contract  which Buchanan had with Messrs. Mc.  Farland   and   Sheridan.   This  contract  called  for the  clearing of  Buchanan's  timber limit at Crawford Bay, it being  specifically stated that all  the timber  reasonably fit for mill purposes should  be taken off. West, however, delivered  a quantity of logs at the mill and demanded $856. He was offered $656 and  tbe  remainder  when  he  delivered the  rest of the logs. This offer was refused  and the case went to trial, C. W. McAnn  appearing for the defendant Buchanan,  and S. S. Taylor for West. Justice Irving  gave  judgment   for  the   plaintiff  West, and an appeal was taken from  this decision to the full court. The full  court found in Buchanan's favor with  costs.   Negotiations  were  then  opened  by West for a settlement, with the result that he agreed to deliver the balance of the logs and accept $500 as settlement in full, the remaining $356 going to pay in part the costs of Buchanan in the litigation.
