 52235*5;  if  m  ESTABLISHED  1892  WEDNESDAY  MORNING,  DECEMBER  11;   1901  DAILY EDITION  .-���im  'i-I.  r'��  MANYWANTTOGO  NO TROUBLE GETTING RECRUITS IN NELSON.  CAPTAIN LECKIE SELECTED TEN  FROM THE NUMBER OF .  APPLICANT?.  Captain J. Edwards Leckie had a busy  lime in this city yesterday in" enlisting  men fnr the Canadian Mounted Infantry  contiVigent -which is to be dispatched to  South Africa. Although those who desired  to go had but a few hours' notice as to  the arrival of the recruiting oilicer there  were two men to volunteer for service for  every one that the recruiting oilicer was  authorized to take, and had anything like  ample notice been given of the time for  enlistment it Is safe to say the number  of voluneors would have been more than  doubled, as there are a number of men  employed in the mines who had expressed  a desire for service when the opportunity  offered. What was true in thc case of  Nelson was also true in" the case of Rossland, where some th.irty-1'ive men volunteered for the ten places authorized, and  the same will doubtless be found to have  been the case in every recruiting station  in ~the-province. This goes to show that  it is money rather than men that the imperial government is short of.  - Captain Leckie did not get down to the  work of enlisting until about 2 o'clock in  tho afternoon, and when he was ready lo  do business there were a. number of volunteers anxious to get their names on the  list. The Greenwood contingent were  among   the    first.     This    included   J.    L.  "Meiklejohn, the big townsite boomer and  prospector, who had rseen service in thc  Klondike in tbe management of one of the  first papers in tho land of the midnight  sun, and who is taking chances that military duty Is no harder than the editing of  the overdraft column of a newspaper.  Meiklejohn it is understood had a close  call in getting away with the contingent,  as he is a big load for any horse to carry,  but his ability wilh the ride' and his undoubted horsemanship won the day for  him. He is the Scotch representative of  the Greenwood party. ";  ./��� R. J. Coulter was Ireland's representative, who while in Green^vooij -wan on*the  staff of the local branch of thc Bank of  British North America, and F. AV. Gladden, who has been roughing'.it in the hills  of the Boundary for several seasons was  England's representative.  There were six Nelson'men .who secured  places on thc list, the remaining, place being secured by Trail. , All told there were  nineteen applicants, made- up as follows:  J. L. Meiklejohn, R. J. Coulter and F. AV.  Gladden of Greenwood; "IS. Kerfoot of  Greenwood and J. .L.' McRae of Similkameen; S. Neelands, J. Simms, Fred Ellis,  P. F. Horton, E. S. Tuck, G. C. Murdock,  E. C. King, K. TT. Marlott, AV. Somcrton,  Thomas Dunn and Clarence Howell of  Nelson; G E. McMullin of Ireland; and AV.  Isley of Trail. Dr. Kennedy, of the Northwest Mounted Police, who conducted the  examination of the applicants, said they  were, with'one'or two exceptions, a remarkably fine set of men, but as there  were places for but hall of them the other  half were bound to be disappointed.    The  children. Tho family settled in Caledon  township, Peel county, Ontario, in 1S3G,  and had thc hardships and privations and  blessings of thc average old country people  who as pioneers settled In the Ontario  bush when there were no roads and no tea,  and very little of .nything except  frosts and disappointments. Yet today  that portion of Ontario Is one of the garden spots of Canada. AVilliam Houston  was n fair type of the Canadian farmer.  He never mortgaged his farm, nnd always  managed to have teams that could take  prizes at thc township fairs, nnd around  his barn could always be found plows or  wagons or other farm Implements that  took high rank as specimens of the skill  of local mechanics. He was a Reformer  in politics, and had read the Toronto Globe  for 57 years, and probably never voted for  a Conservative in his life. A Presbyterian  In religion, no "Sunday was loo stormy to  keep him from attending church. He had  his faults. He Hketl his friends and was  not on speaking terms with his enemies.  One of his sons and a grandson live In  Nelson.  nnd in transit and supplies of the total  value of 11,016,000. At the mine, the low-  grade oro dump is valued at $100,000 net."  The directors add there is $100,000 owed  the Le Roi by olher companies, but that  this will shortly be paid. The directors  nl.-'o say the assets will exceed the total  liabilities of the company by about $250,000.  A GREAT FACTOR  CITY AND DISTRICT.  ten successfdl applicants were J. L  Meiklejohn, R. J. Coulter and F. AV. Gladden of Greenwood; Thomas Dunn, J.  Simms, Fred Bui's, c. E. King, E. S. Tuck  and J. Fry of Nolson, and AV. Tsley of  Trail. They will leave on the Crow's  Nest boat tomorrow morning and catch  the train for tho east. As the contingent  will not leave Halifax until the middle of  January there will bo a month in which  tho men can brush up on their drill.  Captain Reekie left this morning for  East Kootonay and Fort Steele whero he  will complete the work of recruiting. Tt  is said that a number of local men who  passed the necessary examination here  but failed to get on thc list will follow  him in the hope of meeting with better  luck over there. Among those will be  Fred AVollaston.  AVhile captain Leckie was in the city  yesterday .captain Macdonnell of.the local  company, of ,R. -M. R. broached the matter  to the district officer-commanding at Victoria of the desirability of forming a packing corps for service in connection with  the troops,, the idea being to do away with  th'e cumbersome transport arrangement  which In the past has very seriously impeded the movements of the troops in the  field. It was pointed out that such a  corps could be raised and the work of recruiting the same had been volunteered  by lieutenant Tom Brown of the Nelson  company of R. M. R., who, had.also seen  service in South Africa with the second  contingent of Canadian Mounted Rifles.  In support of this suggestion It was urged  that with 100 or .150 pack animals.it would  be an easy matter to carry provisions for  the entire battallion for a period of ten '  days, which would enable them to operate  a considerable distance from their base of  supply and to leave the roads entirely,  something utterly impossible with a  wheeled transport. The D. O. C. at Victoria referred the matter back to captain  Leckie and by him it was passed on to the.  authorities at Ottawa, so that it is likely  that the suggestions will receive attention  in plenty of time to permit of its adoption  if the scheme commends Itself.  Died at Alton, Ontario.  William Houston, senior, died at Alton,  Ontario, a week ago. Born in Renfrewshire, Scotland, he came to Canada in the  j;arly 30*3 along with Ms parents ana lhelr  The deceased was 00 years of age, several  of which wore spent in this eity, in the  course of which ho made many warm  friends. He was a sufferer from asthma,  wliich was thc cause of his death, together  with other complications.  Frank Grantham of " Ymir and Miss  Maude Crease of this city were married  in St. Saviour's church yesterday morning by bishop Dart. 'The bride Is the  oldest daughter of the late Charles Blandford Crease of Barrie, Ontario, and a sister of police magistrate Crease of this  pity.--The bride was attired in a traveling  'dress of grey broadcloth with satin trimmings. Mr. and Mrs. Grantham left on  tho morning train for the Ymir mino,  where Ihey will mako their home.  The members of the iNelson Operatic  Society held their last rehearsal last evening for the production of the Chimes of  Normandy, which they contemplate giving In the opera house on Wednesday,  Thursday and Friday evenings. Those who  have .witnessed the. rehearsals are unanimous that the forthcoming production  wil! be the most successful of any attempted by the local operatic oociety. Therp has  been a very good advance sale for seats  for the two first performances, whloh has  given rise to the report that there are no  good seats remaining lur either of these  nights. This story is denied, however, by.  the management and those' who contemplate taking in the performance on any  of the. nights may be assured of good  seats.  Frecheville's Loudon Cable.  ROSSLAND, December" 10.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Frecheville's cable from  here on November 25tli reads: "The auditors make thc profit from the Le Roi  mine and smelting works for the year ending June 30th, 1901, $5S5,000, all of which  was used for improvements. . All the plant  is flrst-class. I estimate the reserves of  ore at date above the 900-foot level at  4S4.O0O tons, of the value of $11.75 per ton.  The total cost per ton in the future ought  not to exceed $9. The lowest level in the  mine so far driven shows a shoot of ore  21 feet wide, which gives average assays'  of $15.75 per ton. The shaft is down 1050  feet. Thc inventory of November 23rd at  thc smelter shows oro aud matte on liand  Greenwood Local News.  GREENWOOD, Decomoer 10.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���A letter received by a  Greenwood friend from AAr. S. Keith, at  one time editor and part proprietor ot the  Greenwood Miner, and later employed ln  the local customs olllce, who joined the  South African contingent, states that he  has been seriously and probably permanently injured. He was thrown from his  horse and hurt his spine. Ho Is incapacitated, being now unable to ride horseback. He would like to return to Greenwood If he could obtain some office or  other light employment.  James Lawrence of the Lawrence Hardware Company was the only Nelson arrival here today.

John Kane, who is employed in the Calgary branch of the business of P. Burns  & Co., was In Nelson yesterday visiting  friends. He Is on his way to the Greenwood branch of the firm.  J. Labarthe of Trail, who for a day or  so filled the post of superintendent oflthe  Northport smelter, but who resigned  rather than have the responsibility without full authority, was in Nelson yesterday.  The C. P. R. bridge over the Columbia  river at Robson is now receiving the finishing touches. With the completion of  tho work on the approaches the structure  should bo ready for use within a week or  ten days. " - ��� . -n-  , Another week of fine weather will complete the work for this .season upon the  postoffice building. The contractors are  desirous of finishing the flooring for the  second story, when the" work will be  roofed in and the doors and windows  closed for the winter.  The Nelson -Operatic Society, a purely  local organization, will render the "Chimes  of Normandy," a comic opera, at the  opera house tonight. Those who have witnessed the rehearsals claim the performance will be better than any of Jthose  -"previously girfjn 7>y the society.  Complaints are being made against the  Crow's Nest Coal Company for refusing to  nil orders " for coal to be delivered at  points in Kootenay. It is claimed there  is no scarcity of cars on the sidings at  Pernio, so the coal company cannot have  the excuse tbat the Canadian Pacific is  responsible for tho coal shortage at points  like Nelson and Rossland.  At the Nelson record office yesterday a  bill of sale was recorded in which Charles  Munroe transferred lo AVilliam Allen the  whole of the Minnietta mineral claim situate on McGarrity creek, some ten miles  southwest of Nelson. Certificates of work  were also granted to Jens Olsen on the  Sunset minoral claim, and to W. B. Mc-  Isaac on  the Express.  AAr. P. Robinson, ex-sheriff of South  Kootenay, died at his. residence in this  city shortly after 10 o'clock last evening.  Another Securities Company.  NEW YORK, December 10.���The Commercial Advertiser has the following today: "A" charter was filed here under  the laws of New Jersey this afternoon  which apparently is intended for a combination like that embraced In the charter  for the Northern Securities Company,  which is absorbing the securities of the  Northern Pacific, Great Northern and  other northwestern railroads. The title  of this new corporation is the Southern  Securities Company and except as it differs in certain provisions which have been  the subject of adverse criticism, it is on  substantially the same lines as tho Northern. Securities Company.  BRIDGE PLANS ARE DUTIB6LE  Seizure Made at Victoria.  VICTORIA, December 10.���The plans for  the New Westminster bridge, for which  the government is calling for tenders,  were seized today by the collector of customs for duty. They were" prepared at  Kansas City by Mr. AVaddell, the bridge  expert, and the collector of customs contends that they are liable to $3000 in duty,  this being twenty per cent of two and a  half per cent of the estimated cost of the  bridge. The plans of the Puget Sound  Bridge & Dredging Co. for the proposed  bridge at Point Ellice were seized for the  same reason. The provincial government  is appealing to Ottawa against the action  of the collector. . The amount of duty  claimed on the plans irom the Seattle  company Is $460.. ���   .  Premier Dunsmuir has decided to- close  the Alexandria mine on account of the  action of the miners in quitting work last  Saturday to attend a meeting for the purpose of forming a confederation of all the  coal mining unions in the,.district. The  miners decided to confederate. Premier  -Dunsmuir says he will always treat with  his own men but not with representatives  of a con federation whieh includes employees of other companies.  The ten men from Victoria for the Canadian Rifles which the Canadian government is raising for service in South Africa  left for the east tonight. They are corporal F. H. Anderson, H. Robinson, E. C.  Carey, N. McDonald,- J. A. AVarleigh, H.  'Little, R. C. Martin, A. C. Poyce, A. A.  Haggarty and J. Pauline.  Investigation has proved that the fire in  the Extension, mine, where the terrible  disaster occurred a few months ago, has  not been smothered through thc air being  shut off and it will likely be necessary to  flood  the ..mine,   as   was- done  at  Comox.  This, besides being a costly operation, will'  take a long time and after the fire is out,  It will take longer to pump out again, so  that the mine would be closed indefinitely.

AVASHINGTON, December 10���Following is a, synopsis of minister Rockhill's report to the prssldent on his negotiations  with the powers in the settlement of the  Chinese   indemnities  and   punishments:  As regards the punishment of the responsible authors and actual perpetrators  of the anti-foreign outrages. The government of the United States, while insisting  that all should be held to the utmost accountability, declined to determine in every  case the nature of the punishment to be  inflicted, and "maintained that the .Chinese  government itself would in every case  carry them out. As^ soon as tho chief  culprits had been punished, considering  tlie terrible losses in life and property sustained by China, not only through the  Boxers and their adherents, but by the destruction of Tien Tsin, Pekin and the  military occupation of a large portion of  the province-of Chi Lt, the United States  threw the weight of its influence on the  side of moderation and the prevention of  further bloodshed. To this it was mainly  due that the long list of prosecutions  which had been .prepared by the representatives of the powers of Chinese in the  provinces charged with participation in the  massacres or riots were repeatedly revised  before presentation to ��he Chinese government. The demands for capital punishment were finally reduced from  ten to four and many on the list, for want  of sufficient eveidence, were removed or  lighter forms of punishment asked for.'  AVhile seelting with the other- powers the  best means to prevent the recurrence ol  such troubles and guard in the future  American residents in Pekin from such  dangers as they had passed through tho  United States did not lend its support to  any plan whicli contemplated cither the  prolonged occupation by foreign troops of  any portions or points in China or 'the  erection of an international fort.i>*UtlieJcity .  of "Pekin hem which to carry on-friendly  relations with the Chinese government,  and their rights, under the treaties.  As regards tho third point of the negotiations, the equitable indemnification oi  the various states for the looses ,and expenses incurred by thtm in China and in  sending expeditionary forces to relieve tho  legations and foreigners at Pekin and restore order and also the securing of in-  edmnities to societies, companies and individuals for their private losses through  tho antl-foreign riots, the government of  the United States advocated that the sum  total of these indemnities should not exceed a reasonable amount well within  the power of China to pay. After careful  Inquiry we reached the conclusion that  with her present resources and liabilities,  China could not pay as indemnities to the  powers more than two hundred millions of  dollars, and that the exaction of any larger  amount would not only entail permanent  financial embarrassment on the country,  but might possibly result In either international financial control or even loss of  "terri tory. The representative 6 f life"  United States was Instructed acordlngly,  and he was further told that in the opinion of our government tho amount should  be asked of China by the powers jointly  without detail or explanation, and afterwards divided among them' according to  their losses nnd distributed among them.  You also stated that every facility for  payment should bo accorded China and  the debt should be paid by bonds issued  at par and bearing thc three per cent in-  toress running for thirty or forty years.  Though lt became necessary after protracted discussion in the conference, to  accept the proposition of the other powers  to demand of China the r>um total of their  losses and disbursements, reaching tho  enormous sum of $3_:t,000,000, our Insistence  in pressing for a much lower sum nnd the  weight of the arguments'adduced In favor  of such a policy resulted-in closing thc in  demnltles nt the above lump sum' whr-n  they bid fair to go on swelling indefinitely.  This and the acceptance of your suggestion that the Indemnities be paid In bonds  issued at par and bearing a low rate of  interest (four per cent) was finally agreed  upon, running for forty years, resulted In saying a vast sum to China and  hastened the evacuation of the country by  the expeditionary forces and the restoration of order and normal relations with  the Chinese government. '  In connection with the question of the  indemnity, I should particularly mention  that it having been proved necessary to  the powers in their search for revenues  applicable to the service of the indemnity  debt that the existing normal five per  cent ad valorem customs tariff of foreign  imports should be made an effective five  per cent ad valorem, the United States  declined to consent to the above increase  of the customs tariff un imports unless  (1). All tho treaty powers and China  agreed to co-operate in the long desired  Improvement of the water approaches to  Shanghai and Tien Tsin, and (2) that specific duties should be substituted for tho  present ad valorem ones in the tariff on  foreign imports. Both of these conditions  were ultimately agreed upon. No divergence of views existed,, fortunately, between the representatives of the powers  on thc question of improving the channels  of direct communication between them and  the Chinese government. Thc long vexed  question of the ceremonial to he observed  In the public audiences granted by tho  emperor of China to foreign representatives was finally settled by the plenipotentiaries on lines perfectly satisfactory  to all parties to thc negotiations.  The tsung II yamen, or bureau of foreign" affairs, which the experience of forty  years had shown Chinese and "foreigners  alike to bo unwieldly and incapable of discharging the duties devolving upon it was  altered in the way suggested by the conference, changed Into a responsible ministry of foreign affairs and organized on  lines similar to these adopted in every  country in the world.  Such in brief, has been thc role played  by the United States tn the conference at  Pekin. While we maintained complete influence, we were able to act harmoniously  in the concert of powers, the existence of  which was essential to a prompt and  peaceful settlement of thc ��� situation. We  retained thc friendship of all the negotiating powers, excited a salutary influence  in the cause of moderation, humanity and  justice and secured adequate reparation for  the wrongs done our citizens, guarantees  for their future protection, and labored  successfully in the Interests of the/whole  world in the cause of equal and impartial  trade with all parts of the Chinese empire.

DIFFERENT METHODS FOR  WORKING PRODUCT''  WORK OF THE FEDERATION  NICARAGUAN CANAL  BILLS  Senator Morgan Again to the Fore.  AVASHINGTON, Deeomuer" 10.���After a  number of nominations had been confirmed  senator I odge called up thn IIa.y-Pn.unce-  fote treaty and made a brief statement  regarding thai convention. The senate  then adjourned in order to sive the Democratic caucus committee an opportunity  to hold a meeting. Mr. Lodge contended  that the new treaty does away wilh all  the objectionable features ot tho treaty of  the last congress and enumerated the particulars in which the revised agreement  conforms to- tho action of the senate in  the last congress when the old treaty was  before it. lie analyzed thp new treaty from  beginning to end, showing that in specific  terms it abrogates,. lh(i ..Clayton-Bulwer  "treaty of 1S50, which, ho said, had stood  constantly in the w'ay of the construction  of the isthmian canal." The abrogation of  this treaty, he contended, was a most important achievement and he did not believe that the United States should or  would lose an opportunity lo secure the  concession. Senator Lodge said further  that practically Great Britain had agreed  to turn over tho management ofthe canal  r  i ,  to the United States, not only in timo of  peace but in tini3 of war. It is understood that the treaty "will be called up tomorrow.  Senator Morgan introduced a bill providing for the construction of the Nicaraguan canal. The bill provides an aggregate  of $l.SO,OOn,000,:*1 of which $5,CO0.*'OO is immediately available, and of which aggregate sum such amounts as arc" necessary  to be appropriated by congress from timo  tn time. The control of thc can.il and of  the canal belt Is vested in a board of  eielit citizens of the United Slates, in addition to 'he secretary of war, who is to  be president.

There is a provision authorizing thc establishment of a regiment  from the regular army on thc canal belt  lo guard it properly, and conrls 'ire also  authorized conformable to the powers  granted bv tbe governments of Nicaraguan and Costa Rica. There Is nl'-o  a provision making three divisions of the  canal during tho construction and there'  Is to bo a Thief engineer and two n0"^-*  tont engineers o" oach division, the chief  to receive a salary of $0000 and the h'ssls-  tnnts $3000.  Many Animals Purchased.

They carry from 1000  to 1500 animals, and will be loaded as fast  as possibl.;.- The announcement is made  that these Inc.vm.sp:! shipments of mules  and horses to South Africa will continue  for several months. A cable dispatch to  the Inter Ocean from Cape Town states  that the colonial government had made  a requisition for over 1000- riding horses In  the Cape division. The owners are prohibited from selling their horses to anyone except the representatives of the  government.  A New Switnmine Record  PHILADELPHIA, December 10.���F,.

John  Arbuthnot was reelected mayor by about  (100 plurality. D. A. Itoss was second,  with 1"I0 votes, nnd captain Cirruthers  third, with 79'. There were several exciting contests for aldermen in lhe wards.  ���Tho. results are:   ;Ward 1, C. Campbell;  Sound on Chinese Exclusion.  SCRANTON,   December   10.���The   exclusion   of   Chinamen,   Japanese   and   other  Asiatics   from   American   territory,   ticket  scalping   legislation   and   advisabilities   of  adopting  a. universal  label  for  non-union  made goods,   were  the  ,/nncipal  questions  that claimed attention of the delegates at  today's two sessions of the American Federation  of  Labor.    The  resolutions  advocating  the exclusion of tlie Chinese wero  adopted   by   the   convention   without   consideration, but in the matter of excluding  natives of Japan and other Asiatic lands  a  snag was  struck  and  this  part of  the  anti-Mongolian   agitation   was   killed   so  far as the present convention is concerned.  The   special   committee  having  charge   of  the exclusion matter was  unanimously in  favor  oi"  i'.v.-ot-ibiy  reporting  tha  Chinos-  sectio.n' of the resolution,  but was divided'  in   regard, to   the   Japanese.     Tho   Pacific  coasl'delegation, wliich led the discussion  on  Chinese  exclusion,   wero  divided  when  it  came  to  exclude  other  Orientals.    The  burden  of  the  remarks  of  those  opposed  to   the  Japanese  resolution   was  that  the.  Chinese   immigration   law   to   prevent   a  Japanese invasion may endanger the passage by congress of the Chinese'act.   The  ticket  scalping debate  was  quite" a lively  affair.

Before leavliig he  gave The Tribune correspondent some iii*  formation  as  to  what  the  company proposed   to   do   In ��� the   near   future.   As   is  1 known,   the*, company "has   been   looking  around with a view to arranging for'the  -reduction of the great tonnage of ore'that  the Snowshoe is now'capable of turning'out  whne the company, sees fit to do so���this -  being'the'result of two years or more of C  steady development that has been going on  at this property. Mr. McMillan stated thnt  two kinds of experiments were being mado ������  with the- Snowshoe ore. One of these was *���  by the electric process, and Is being con- x  ducted   personally   by   the   great   electric- '���  ian  Thomas  A.   Edison  at  his  laboratory  In   New, Jersey.   The  other  is.'bjy the\oil  process,; and wlll'-Jbe. do.ue' Hby \ the JElmpn  Oil  Concentrating-Works' In-Engrland.Thl's .  latter,   though   still   to  a  large  extent  in-  the experlmental'stage,' Is ��� said ��� to-be-quite, ���  inexpensive, the cost' being not more- than  $1 per ton. A pl(ant, in fact', is .now, being*:,  installed,-at- Stratton's"Independence  mine'-.  at "Cripple  Creek,  Colorado,  of which  the-'  earl of Chesterfldld'is chairman, the same  gentleman   being  chairman  of ��� the- Snow- ,  shoe  mine.   Mr. ��� McMillan--expects -to *ax-Zf  rive In London in ,tlme to see the. experl-"-  men tins with'the Snowshoe ore -by, the-oil  -.iroeess.   " ��� '"'',, '   '    7   Z  ���   Recently  large  Improvements-have  been"  going on  at  the. Snowshoe mine,, lndteat- *  ing that the company Intends toowork.the   -  proper yton an extensive scale at" an .early,-  date. Buildings costing nearly $10.000" have' '.,  been erected, including newbunlc-and new  boarding  houses,   office  buildings' and' .superintendent's   and   foreman's   residences.,:.  All  of  these  were  constructed  in" a /most -  substantial  and modern  manner.  In  addl-'-  tion to this the C. P. R: spur at the'mine  has been extended so as to allow, the load- -  ing of  ten  cars  at  a  time,  and  new  ore,  bunkers   have  been   built.    In  every  way .'  possible  preparations have been  made-'for..,;  working the mine on a large scale before''  .  long. . -   ._   . .      -\-j..f. ���  Mr.  McMillan also placed an order this .  week with tho Jenckes Machine Company.''  of  Sherbrooke,   Quebec,' for-, the  first -half-   .  of   a   Rand   duplex   air   compressor   of  30-. '  drill   capacity,    the   same   company' also'  supplying two SO-horse power boilers. The - '  whole new machinery plant Is to 'be dellv-.' ���  ered by  the end of February or sooner.  Mr. McMillan .was asked the direct qties- ���  tion as to whether his company really intended to erect its own smelter for there-''  duction   of   Snowshoe   ores,   as   has   been -  commonly   believed   for   some   time.   The  Snowshoe  manager  did  not  give  a  direct  answer, .but  said   the  company  was  ln^_a_"  I  1 Ji  I  -   '-r  ���r ���   I.  ,  SE  , "��� 'I'l 1.  X   ,--��� 'i,  ��� *V*-�� j  -,-  position to do so if It seemed best. The  impression was left that lt was the full  Intention of the company to do this Just  as ��oon as It had been decided which was  the best and most economic process for  treating the ores.  Late developments on the Snowshoe  have shown that the ore bodies are getting larger, to say nothing of the immense  tonnage of decomposed ore on the surface  of the property, which the management is  now preparing to shfp. Experiments with  the diamond drill have been going on for  .some months with most satisfactory results and are still being continued.  Proceeding in Senate and House.  WASHINGTON, December 10.���The opening session of the senate today was devoted to routine business such * as tha  presentation of petitions," memorials and  bills. The senate then went Into executive  session on motion of senator Lodge, who  has charge of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty,  and adjourned nt 5:5f> p. m.  Speaker Henderson, at the session of the  house today, announced the appointment  of committees. Usually thei committees  are not appointed until after the holiday  recess, but speaker Henderson had the  situation weir In hand when congress met  and having completed the lists, he announced them. The early appointment of  the committee should facilitate legislation   considerably.  A speech on the Philippines was delivered by the venerable ex-speaker Calusha  A.  Grow  of  Pennsylvania.

Bernard McDonald is probably a greatly  over-rated man, and little attention should  be paid to his reports as a mining expert.  No mining country has made either a  great or a lasting name for itself on the  mere reports of experts. In fact, some of  the best mining districts In America have  been turned down by experts; but the  turning down did not afterwards prevent  their mines from being developed into  great properties. Rossland has been  turned down repeatedly by experts, yet  mining men still have faith in Its mines.  The ore may not be as high-grade today  as It was -in 1895,. but where one ton was  mined then twenty tons can be mined now,  and the cost bf freight and treatment has  dropped from $14 a ton to tl. People should  not lose, faith In a camp because of differences of opinion between experts. Rossland Is a great camp, and will be a greater  one once Its mines are managed by honest,  cl^ar-headed managers,, who are willing to  treat mine workers fairly and will attend  strictly to mining, leaving the politics of  the country ��� to be looked after by politicians and. lawyers.  The city* auditor does hot seem to be persona grata with either mayor Fletcher or  the mayor's right bower, alderman Selous.  If :the, city, auditor does his work well,'  the people of Nelson will care little  whether auditor McDermid Is liked or  disliked, by: other officials. It is a, noteworthy fact that the auditor-general of  the Dominion of Canada is .often*disliked  by the government in power and ��� Is cordially hated by many subordinate officials  who would like to get something  from the Dominion treasury to which they  are not entitled by law. So with the city  auditor of Nelson. He may not be liked by  mayor Fletcher and alderman Selous and  may be cordially hated by other officials,  but the people have. confidence In him.  He not only safeguards the interests of  the people, but the interests of the city  /officials as well. If he discovers where  they have made errors, le It not better for  Jheiti  a��  Individual?   to  bftve  their  Wie-  takes shown them within a month after  they are made than after a year or more  has elapsed? City auditor McDermid has  done the city good service In the last two  years, and if his services can be aeoured  ,for another year it would be a mistake  to allow him the chance to refuse because  of a difference of a few dollars in salary.  The property owners of Nelson, if they  would have their property increase In  value-must see to it that the city is absolutely independent of the West Kootenay Power & Light Company. That company will not give anyone wishing to start  an industrial enterprise' near Nelson a  special rate for power, and why make people who wish to locate in Nelson pay it  tribute? The wishes of mayor Fletcher and  alderman Selous should have no weight  whatever with property owners. One Is a  reactionist by inclination; the other is  black today and white tomorrow. "Work  for' your own interests and not for the interests of the West Kootenay Power &  Light Company. Vote FOR by-law No. 102.  It is noteworthy that not a single public meeting has been held in the following  constituencies-, to condemn the government"  on Ita railway policy, towit, .Dewdney,  Richmond, Cassiar, Cariboo, East Lillooet,-  ���West Lillooet, West. Yale, ' North Yale,  East Yale, Revelstoke, Golden, . Fort  Steele, Slocan, Nelson, or Rossland. The  people of these fifteen constituencies may  not have a very high opinion of the Dunsmuir government, either singly or collectively, but they have no use* for the crowd  of V. V, & E," subsidy shouters who have  been trying to manufacture public opinion  ln Victoria, * Vancouver, Chilliwack, and  Delta,  If every alderman who has .served the  city had been like alderman Selous, that is,  ."sweet" on some fad, the , city would  probably have . had Un bonded indebtedness Increased by a hundred thousand  dollars and its, running expenses. doubled,  for fads, like' alderman Selous' isolation  hospital, after . being' built must have  money to operate them. ���';  To make Nelson a manufacturing city  should be the aim v- every property  "owner. Cheap power, water, and light  will help to do it. Therefore, vote for  Bv-law No. 102.  Wearing Them Down Slowly.  LONDON, December to.���Lord Kitchener  in a dispatch from Pretoria, dated-Monday,  December 9th, reports that the result of  the week's work is 21 Boers killed, 17  wounded, and 352 made__prisoners,_35*_sur--  rendered, and quantities of supplies captured. By advancing the Une of- block  houses ln the eastern Transvaal, lord  Kitchener is now a*ble, for the first time,  to carry out systematic and continuous  operations in the vicinity of ��� Ermelo,  Bethel, and Carolina. Columns have cleared  the southeastern portions of ��� the Orange  River Colony and are now operating northward of the Thaba 'Chau line. The Boers  are still In force in the extreme west of  Cape Colony.' They are there commanded  by Maritz, who recently atacked Tentel-  boschop. The Boers were driven off and  Maritz was severely wounded.  Bushing Railroad Work.  PHOENIX, December 10.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Tierney & McPhajl, the C.  P. R. contractors for Kootenay and.Bounr  dary branches, are now hard at work on  the last piece of work for the railway  company which they will handle this year.  This is the building of the loop at Hartford junction, near Phoenix, for the purpose of doing away with the switchback  which has been used since the railway was  completed, nearly, two years ago. The loop  will be about 1600 feet, long and. there are  about 2000 yards of rock to be removed.  The contractors, who have been delayed  by the engineers 'for some time in starting, now have the work well under way,  and say that the snowy weather will not  delay them in the "least. The* work Is under, the Immediate charge of A. W. McPhail, who expects to have the grade completed In another month's time. When, finished the running time of both passenger  and freight trains will be materially reduced between Phoenix and Eholt, a distance of ten miles, and where there are  some of the heaviest grades on the entire  Boundary railway. In addition to this Tierney & McPhail have recently completed  considerable other work in this vicinity  for the C. P. R. At Eholt large additions  to the tracking facilities have been made,  to accommodate the Increasing traffic of  the Phoenix branch. A ten car spur has  been put In at the Sno*vahoe, and an additional house track hns been built nt  Phoenix. In addition to this the Knob HIII  spur has been extended a distance of about  2000 feet so that ore trains can run right  lip to tl}8 mouth Qf the \ong tunnel. The Q,  P,  R,  track.  It Is evident from the foregoing what  the C. P. R. has been lately doing in the  way of improvements in and around Phoenix that the company expects to do a large-  'ly increased business on this branch in  the near future. Two properties, at least,  the Granby and the Snowshoe, will contribute  largely  to  this  tonnage  in  the  new  *"���*"������ - i iiiiM! ffl  HE STEPS DOWN AND OUT  �� ���   '^���k ���.*;���  ���ffi?-0'-i  ' '00 ' 000''-00* .  \* ^""l*** *���  V* ^0 * ^00* ^0 * ^^0' 400 ' J  ���*��&.   ��� '  . ��� *��&. ��� ^ ���  Croker No Longer Leads Tammany.  NEW YORK, DeccuiDcr 10.���Richard  Croker today practically gave up thc  leadership  of  Tammany  Hall.   He  said:  '"You won't see much more leading on  my part In the future. I am getting old  and worn out nnd I can't be a field horse  for everybody any longer. I admit that the  leader of Tammany Hall should stay in  New York all the year round, and I can't  stay here for more than part of the year.  If I tried to stav here all the time 1 could  do no work at- all.  "All this talk of my being state leader  and trying to dictate in national politics  Is all nonsence. I am in no condition to  do any kind of leading, but, of course,  I will always take a deep Interest In Tammany Hall and advise the best I can."  When asked if he was training anybody  to succeed him as leader he replied:  "Oh, I have not come to that yet, and I  have not planned my future, except that  I will go to England In January or February. The Tammany executive committee  will ineel* next month, and you may hear  more of the matter then."  When ho was asked as to the reports  that Edward M. Shepard was to become  Democratic leader he said:  "There's nothing in that. Sheppard does  not want s.uch a position and he is not in  politics. He simply expresses his views like  anyone else when asked  to ,do so."  Concerning Deverey, Croker said: "He Is  a good chief of police, but what he did as  deputy commissioner I don't know, as T  was away part of the time. If he did all  they say he did he ought to be hung.  "They say all kinds of things about Deverey during the campaign, but I did not  notice that they proved anything. It is  easy enough to make charges. Why didn't  they prove them , legally? They had the  district attorney's office and all the machinery. ' But they' proved nothing. T am  not defending Deverey or anybody else,  but  I like  to  see  fair  play.V  Concerning Tammany's future Croker  said: "Some mugwumps are talking about  Tammany going to pieces. Nonsense. Tammany will be stronger than ever two years  from now. A defeat once In a while is a  good thing for an organization. After the  fusionists have been in office a few years  the people will see that the Tammany administration was" not such a bad thing  after all. We .have been downed before by  reform movements and always -rose up  stronger than ever before after a few  years. Jt will be the same story In 1303,  Tammany ^Is close to the common people  of  New  York.''  The Tammany "executive committee will  meet early in Januiiry, and it is expected  that Croker will deliver his farewell address at that meeting. John F. Carroll will  acting his place for a time, at least. Whether he will succeed to the leadership depends on circumstances. He is the choice  of the whole gambling element in Tammany Hall, that dictated all the Tammany  county nominations last October, bu there  Is a comparatively respectable element In  the Tammany executive committee, though  it Is small, that may rebel against Carroll  and call for a reorganization. At present  it looks as if Sullivan and CarroJJ were  ln the lend.  Croker's Influence may decide whether  the gambling "combine" Is to remain in  control. Up to date he has shown no opposition to the "combine." This morning  he had a long conference with Tlmntb'-  D. Sullivan, who' Is about to leave town  "for. his health." and parted with him affectionately in the corridor of the Democratic Club.

Calling one day on a Miss Ferguson, and  observing a fine honeysuckle in full blossom over the door, sir Walter Scott congratulated his friend on its appearance.  She spoke of it as a trumpet honeysuckle.  "AVeel," said Scott, "ye'll never come out  of your ain door.without a nourish of  trumxiets."  A certain judge In a western state who  was noted for. his disinclination to admit  that he was ill, was recently approached  by the state librarian, who courteously  asked after his health. "'William," said  the judge cautiously, "I am not very well,  but I am better than I was when 1 was  worse than I now am."  Not long ago a western Kansas politician was asked by his vuc to lay politics  aside long enough to dig the potatoes In  the garden. He consented, and, after dig-  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.   Present rate  three per cent.  GRANGE V.

He put it into his jeans and went  back to work. Presently he went to he  house'again and said he-had found another  coin, fie washed the dirt off it and this  time it was a silver half dollar. He put  it in his jeans. "I guess I will take a short  nap." When he awoke he found that his  wife had dug all the rest of the potatoes.  But she found no coins. It then dawned  on her that she had been "worked."  As a young man Paul Kruger was regarded as an authority on psalm singing,  and the farmers used to come to him to  learn the key notes for starting the  noxt Sunday's psalm. Kruger, even in  those days, was no believer in giving anything away���not- even a note of music���  so he Had a uniform charge of a handful  of dried peaches for his instruction.

The  result when the pious Doppers attempted  to raise their voices in sacred harmony  next Sunday may be imagined. The result  was that each man concluded that he had  lost the key, and had to return for a further lesson. "I nearly banKrupted them of  their   dried   peaches,"   said   the  president.  The other day Miss Norman Adams and  Samuel Gardner who live on adjoining  farms, began suit to determine the ownership of a brood of fourteen turkeys.  The brood, headed by . the old hens, a  white and a bronze, "had been running the  farms of both all���_summer. Miss Adams  owned the bronze hen and Gardner the  white.

It  measured,   he  said,  21  feet    from    nose    to    tail-tip.    Everybody  "gasped^ a   little, . but   nobody , ventured   to  express lack of faith in the accuracy of the  'figures. However, there was an old Scotchman present, -who capped the Englishman's  tiger story with a fish story.  He said he  once  caught  a  fish  which  was  so' heavy  that he could not land it.  He had to call  on six of his friends to help him' bring lt  to shore.  "Tt was a skate," he said,  "and  covered two acres." The Englishman soon  found   occasion   to   leave   the   table   and  tho host took the Scotchman to task," saying:   "That  two acre,fish, story  of  yours  was   a  reflection   on   him���an   insult.   You  must  apologize."   "Weel,"   said   the   Scot,  "just you go  back to  the injured gentleman, and tell him if' he wllf take ten feet  off that tiger's tail, I'll see what I. can do  with the fish."  itang  OFFICER BAKER STREET WEST,.

British ard German Troops Fight.  BERLIN, December 10.���The official report of the affair at. Tien,'Tsin says that  an Indian soldier ran amuck, invaded the  German commlsslarat quarters, ���shot and  mortally wounded a ���quartermaster and  wounded three other'men severely, whereupon he' was shot down by a German sentry. According to a dispatch from Tien  Tsin to the Associated Press' last night,  a sentry belonging to an Indian regiment  stationed there, ran amuck during the day  and killed two of his comrades. A company of Punjab infantry was at once  turned out to secure him. In the meantime, the sentry had been shot by German  troops, who opened fire on the Junjabees.  The result was a free fight, In* which a  German private was killed and a German  officer was mortally wounded, whilo three  of the Indian troops were killed .and several wounded.  Won on a Foul.

M. S.  Empress of India arrived tonight from  tlio Orient with :35>saloon.and 275 steerage  passengers. SheVjbrought advices to the  effect that princV'"Tuan and.general Tung  Hsiangr are planning a rebellion - in Mongolia and Shen' Si'"to invade China, and  crossing into Shen Si to capture that city  and use it as a base for raids into Chi U  or the capture of Peking. They are busily  nuying mules In Mongolia and recruiting  troops. The news of large purchases of  mules is confirmed from several sources.  Arms and ammunition have been secured  ���by the insurgents to arm 100,000 Kansu and  Mongol troops who are expected to join  their standard. Alashan, a Mongol prince,  3ias also brought 20,000 norsemen to their  standard. Some. of the Tokio papers publish a story that on August 20th the late  -viceroy, Li Hung Chang, sent a letter to  Yung Tu, who is now the prime favorite  at the Chinese court, in which Li set out  that as he was about to die he deemed  it his duty to submit a policy for China  to the throne. He was against opposing  Russia in Manchuria, for with Russia In  Manchuria Japan would seize Korea and  their territories adjoining and war would  probably result.
