James Rutherford of Rossland.- manager of the Lardo Valley Mines, Limi-  itecl,  was  in  Nelson  yesterday,  having  just returned from'the properties which '.  his company is developing in the ,Lar-  deau district. The Lardeau Valley Mino_"  is a development syndicate formed for "  the purpose of opening up a group of  claims  on  Tenderfoot- creek,  about six  miles from  the' now townsite of Twin  Falls, which thevCanadian Pacific Railway Company has just put on the market. The stock in the syndicate is held  in Rossland, 'Spokane and Sweden and  the property which, it  proposes to develop  consists of six > or seven  claims.  Up   to   date   there   ha.&   not   been   very   "  much   done   on   tbe   property, * but   in  speaking in a general way of the dis-' ."  trict  in which  the claims are  situate,  Mr.   Rutherford   said   that  the   section  appeared to be traversed by a series of -  quartz and galena ledges, all of which  gave  good  assays  from  the  croppings.  The.bulk of the work-which the Lardeau Valley Mines have done so far is ���>  upon the John L. claim.  The showing  upon  this property 13 a strong quartz  ledge upon which a tunnel has been run  in for a distance or 70 feet. This tunnel  '  is in-ore alLthe way and the shaoe of \  tne  hill   is'such   that-foot  for  loot  is"-*  gained   in "the   driving  of   the- tunnel-""  ln the tunnel the showi.ig consists bf a"  three foot body of quart*, rather heavily'  impregnated   with   iron.   This   ore,.has  "7  sampled very uniformly from $18 to 920.   -���  in gold, in addition to smaller values in'  silver, lead and copper. On the surface  it looked as if the ore would mill, but  ���-  in the tunnel it has shown to be more  refractory **o that how it is put' down  as a smelting proposition. It will, how-  ,  ever, admit of a process of concentration, and in the opinion of Mr. Rutherford it should concentrate 12 to 1. This  would  give a  very  high  class  product -'  and one which would make transporta-  . tion  and.'treatment  rates  a  secondary , '  consideration.   There  are   other "ledges '-,  occurring 011 this claim, but so far,they, .  "have- not-bear.'. pros'pectGy'l'ufliciehtly^xd'**  speak  intelligently" nf them.- - *"     " 3-  . Lower down on the creek some sur- .  face work has been done on the Maggie  claim. A fine surface snowing of galena  has been found on this claim and a 12  foot  ledge  traced  through   the  Maggie    ���  and the Spokane claim which adjoins it.  This   ledge   runs   with   the   formation  while  the  gold   ledge  on   the John  L.  cuts the formation. The showing on the  Maggie is about 130 feet above the creek  and a tunnel has been'started to get in  under it. The ore in this ledge is altogether different from  that in the ledge'  opened up on the John L. It is purely a  silver-lead proposition, there being an 18  inch stringer on the hanging wall which  as_ays $100 in all values. Mr. Rutherford  says it is the intention of his company  to continue work all winter, and,'to this  end additional quarters will'bo ."put up  =af-=once,=As=lhe^compa*iy=i_^a=dov-elop-   nicnt company rather than a mining  co'mpauy an effort,will be made to get  (lie property in shape for a sale as soon  as possible.   ,-.���������  One of the principal men in the Lardeau Valley Mines is count Wachmcis-  tcr of Sweden. The count has beeu up  on the property for the past few weks  watching th development and left yesterday lor Washington, D. C, on his  way home to Sweden. A month ago he  had' the Swedish and Austrian representatives at Washington out to inspect the  property and it is likely that they will  be represented in the company which it  is expected to organize to take over the  property when It is ready for the market. Although he is not a mining mau.  count Wschmelstor knows a 12 foot  ledge when he sees it, and as he took  samples of the rock from the tunnel -  on the John L. as the shots were fired  he will know just what there is in it,  and upon his representations there will  be no difficulty in organizing a company to take the proporty over. The  count is a descendant of one of the German families which settled in Sweden  several years ago. He is the son of an  English mother, being born in London  while his father was Swedish' representative at. the court of St. James. He will  return tb British Columbia next summer when Mr. Rutherford expects . to  have the property rather thoroughly developed. ,  An Author Sentenced to Death.  PARIS. August 29.���George D'orys,  son of the late prince of Samos, a former minister of the sultan of Turkey,  and formerly governor of Crete, has  been condemned to death by the sultan's courts, at the direction of Abdul  Hamid II. This action was taken iu  Constantinople because of the publication of M. Dory's book. "The Private  Life of the Sultan." The book so angered Turkey's ruler that he exerted  his influence in diplomatic channels to  have it suppressed in all European countries. His efforts succeeded in Sweden,  but the popular outcry against such action in Paris was so strong that the  government declined to exert itself.  M. Dory secretly left Constantinople -  some time ago and is now 'a resident in  Paris, whore he has identified himself  with the Young Turkish Party.  .," '*!  -> ~l  -~v'i  V'*.

There will be a test of the effectiveness of the Alien Labor Act, and of the  sincerity of .the law department of the  province in enforcing it. The test will  be made at Rossland., The management  of the Le Roi mine have entered into  a contract with an alien, named Geiser  of Oregon, to work that mine. It is  well-known that he cannot-obtain men  in Canada to work for him, and he can  only obtain them in the United States.  Few men will come from that country  of their own free will to Avork in a mine  in British Columbia at Avhich there is a  labor difficulty. But men can be found  who will come on contract. It is alleged such 'men are already "arriving at  Rossland and' are being smuggled into  the mine.   Theattempt will be as futile  fas was a like attempt made eighteen  months ajro when men were imported  into Nelson and Slocan districts to work  in mines whose managers refused to pay  the standard rate of wages prevailing  -in the country. There should be no  room in British Columbia for alien law  breakers, and it is' to be hoped that  thoso at Rossland will be given a dose  of British Columbia justice that- they-  will-remember as long as they live.  j-|-Hritzxxxixxxxxl_________xt*_________ja  5     LADIES' SUNSHADES     i  �� AT HALF PRICE.

The irregularities of the government  agent at Revelstoke, who is said to be  short in his accounts, will not be a great  surprise to anyone acquainted with-him,  however much of "a surprise it will be  to the people who imagined that the  days of defaulting officials was of the  past in British Columbia. A few years  ago, a number of officials, who had been  long in oflice, were fonud to have gone  wrong. Some of them left the country  and' were never apprehended; others  were arrested, tried, convicted, and  given sentences in the penitentiary. The  Revelstoke man was appointed by the  present government after it lied been  repeatedly warned that he was not to "be  trusted; but the appointment had to be  made to satisfy the demands of a faction  that were instrumental in sending J.

John Houston, Manager. Nelson, B. C.  The special telegrams to The Tribune  contain encouraging reports. One comes  from Vancouver, to the effect that the  Van Anda copper mine on Texada  Island is being taken over by an English  syndicate. Another comes from Greenwood, that a good strike has been made  in the Winnipeg mine, near that place.  Sandon says that a good strike of concentrating ore has been made in the  Silversmith, one of the Slocan Star  group. But the most encouraging report of the four is that from Cranbrook,  East Kootenay. It conveys the information that the owners of the Sullivan  group of silver-lead mines are preparing to erect a smelter at Marysville. a  small village near the mines. This all  goes to show that men with money are  pot afraid to invest it in British Colum-  A comparisonJLof���the Jadvertising-and_  news columns of The Tribune and the  Rossland Miner would convince the most  skeptical that the former is the more  representative, daily newspaper. The advertisements in The Tribune show that  it is supported by the business men of  Kootenay. Its news columns show that  it gives all the news of that portion of  the province in which the business men  of Kootenay are dominant. The advertising columns of the Rossland Miner  show that-its patronage comes largely  from foreign business men, and its news  comes from a section of the province  whose people are striving to wrest the  trade of Kootenay and Yale from the  merchants and manufacturers of Rossland and Nelson.  .

One of the charms of England in summer is that you can get to London to  the heart of au ideally rustic and sequestered country in an hour. The train  whisks you away from the roar and turmoil of the_ huge, heated city, dusty,  squalid, and sweltering in its summer  drouth and glare, to the still, green tranquility of one of those beautiful southern counties���peaceful, sleepy, and verdant���of which England is justly proud.  From the carriage window one sees far  across -the rich, level meadows, bosomed  .deep in immemorial trees, with here and  > there a little village drowsing, or the  gables- and greenhouses of a country  house emerging from the massed green-  cry of luxuriant gardens.  Nothing can surpass the richness, the  fertility, and serenity of such a landscape. It is curiously interesting to an  American as being so essentially differ-  .cnt from one's own Vast, primitive, and  undeveloped land. This is a country that  is complete, finished, has reached its meridian. Every inch of it is cultivated  and has been for centuries. These deep  leaved iriant trees have taken hundreds  - of years to attain this noule.grow tli. The  velvet lawns one sees stretching from  the fronts of chimneyed and gabled  manors and granges, have been rolled,  watered, and weeded into their present  state of perfection* by the care of generations.- A long and laborious past has  - been necessary to produce -this luxurious present. The very stillness and  peace  of  the  landscape  suggests  com-  , pletion, rest after labor. It is the quietude of old age. How different from the  half-reclaimed wildness. the primitive  discomfort, the savage, untamed majesty  of the western American country, which  suggests nothing so much as youth.  To escape from London into the heart  of perhaps the most beautiful of all  these counties���Surrey���in the midst of  a broiling July was grateful as the  shadow of a rock in a weary land. My  destination was a small "country place  close to one of those quaint, picturesque  ���little villages that gather round the -Surrey Commons, and there appear to fall  asleep and never again to wake. All  through the district about are scattered  ��� the homes of gentlemen, gentlemen farmers, yeomen, and county families. Just  what constitutes these different distinctions I don't know,- but I do know  that there are distinctions and-'very  marked ones. Here the .green aud fertile summer passes through its variou.  stages of blossoms and fruit, the liltL  - village looks sleepily out on its common, and the dweller's -in the countrj  houses lead that uneventful and rural  existence  which   the- English   love   so  . and have reduced to a science.  .To au American���restless, energetic,  loving the excitement of business, oi  society, or the great world in "one oi  other of its phases���this existence would  be impossible for long periods. For  short ones it charms our countrymen,  aud quantities come over every summei  and rent estates for from three to foui  months. But the English love theii  ���country-l:fe,-and-want-to-leadno-otherr  Some of them go up' to London for a  -month or two in the season, but many  of them remain throughout the year in  their manor, or grange, or cottage, onl*,  visiting the great city to shop or now  and then go to the theater. Their rural  _li��e is as free from care as it is from  excitement. The turmoil and trouble  of the world is shut carefully out. From  their awakening cup of tea, served in  bed in the morning, tp the moment when  tlieir ascending candle breaks the dimness of the stairway at night, the>  breathe an atmosphere of tranquility a.',  marked as that which distinguishes the  landscape.  The dreary isolation which is so often  the lot of the transplanted Englishman  who attempts to lead a rural life in California, is averted by the continual presence of -juests. The English, in then  own country houses, are delightful hosts.  The reason of.this is that they never  try to amuse their guests. Every one  does what he likes. If you are.reading  under an apple' tree in the garden, nc  kindly but ill-inspired hostess comes and  drags you away to take a drive, or play  tennis, or talk to a visitor. You can  sit and read your book to your. heart's  content. Suggestions for your amusement are made to you which you can  refuse, shqiffil the spirit move you to  do otherwise,'and nobody's feelings will  be hurt and no law of politeness be split  up the back. It i�� all delightfully easygoing and informiflil: Your time is your  pie in the world. Whore-wc" telephone,  where, we- telegraph, where wo pay a  call, or send a message, they write a  letter. Members of. families who see  each other weekly write letters; friends,  who'in the regular round of visits are  perpetually meeting, write letters. Men,  who are uot in the least, inclined to be  lovers, write letters to women who have  not the slightest intention of fostering  flirtations. In this country-house life  everyone seems to spend part of the day  writing letters, and the budgets that the  postman leaves each morning indicate  that their,..correspondence is faithfully  answered.  The 'afternoon is the time for driving  and taking-tea.   It was very hot during  my first days in Surrey, so wc did not  start till the fierce power of the sun was  beginning  to  soften.-    Then  we  would  fool alone the quiet, deeply hedged lanes  or the white, high  roads, through the  greenest and mosL curiously mouonlesb  landscape 1 have ever seen.   There was  not a breath of wind, the massy foliage  of the oaks that once covered (his part  of the country iu a vast and unexplored  forest, did not show the quiver of a loaf.  The fields of level grain, deep gold and  heavy-headed with tho ripening seeds,  bowed to no passing breezes.   Here and  there a film of blue smoke rose where a  cottage   lay   embowered  in  clumps   of  trees.   Yet along these sequestered roads  we kept continually meeting carriages.  Some were of the most elesrant description, with two men on  the box and a  pair of noblo,  sleek-skinned, horses at  the pole.   More ofcen it was a dog-cart  driven  by a  fre-*h-faced  girl  in  white  summer raiment, or a sun-burned youth  in tweeds.    Again it would "be a pony  carriage, with two women in pale-tinted,  muslin dresses and-widc, flower-trimmed  hats, for its occuur.nts.    Ones or twice  we  met automobiles whizzing by in a  cloud of their own dust.    But the auto  is not popular in England, as the Briton  loves the horse too much to alloy him to  be siincrseded.  Bowling along in the still, golden afternoon, we caught glimpses' of the  dwellings from whence these passers-  by had emerged. They were of all sorts'.  Sometimes, for a mile o:- two. we would  skirt the od*rc of some stately o-'late,  with its wild expanse of rolling park  land, dotted.with huge trees, and showing here and there groups of small door.  In the distance the gray gables and  spreading front of the mansion showed  up from its surrounding trees, and below a series of connecting ponds, sprinkled with water-lily pods,-gleamed under arching bridges. - T;ess pretentious  places, old houses with stacked chimneys and mullioned windows, stood in  the "midst of their fertile acres, with the  velvet patch of a tennis lawn on one  side and the glass of greenhouses catching the sun. Almpst the most picturesque "of all were the roadside cottages,  homes of the upper gardeners on the  large estates. Some of these places are  many centuries old, the oak beams that  cross their faces being seasoned to a  fiber hard and durable as iron. From  their slanting and sagging roofs great,  wide-mouthed chimneys project, and the  ivy is cut away in places to give room  for the old-fashioned latticed casements  of tiny windows to open freely.  I went into one of these cottages on  the place of a friend, which the tradition  of_Jjie_Bjirroui^in^coj^try^,says_iS-_six.  hluTdi-elTyears old.   The owner had just  repaired. it,   replacing  the   old   "wattle  Nelson Branch���Bunis Block, 221 Baker  Street.  J. M. LAY, Manager.  And not by any means least are the  pets���always dogs and sometimes cats  ���which are part of every English household, and come trolling up for tea in  company with their masters.���Geraldine  Bonner in San Francisco Argonaut.  Mark Twain in a Fix.  Mark Twain had a peculiar experience  when he attended his first great London  banquet, at which there "were between  eight hundred and nine hundred guests.  "The lord mayor, or somebody, read out  a list of the chief guests before we began to eat," he says. "When he came  to prominent names the other guests  would applaud; I found the man next  hie rather a good talker. Just as we  got to an interesting subject there was  a tremendous clapping of hands. I had  hardly, over beard such applause before.  I straightened up and set to clapping  with the rest, and I noticed a good many  people round about me fixing their, attention on me, and some of them laughing in a friendly and encouraging way.  I moved about in my chair, and clapped  louder than ever. 'Who is it?' I asked  the gentleman on my right. 'Samuel  Clemens, better known in England as  Mark Twain,' he replied. I stopped clapping. The life seemed to go out of me.  1 never was in such a fix in all my days."  England in Upper E_ypt.  The Egyptian government is not satisfied .with the great dams at Assouan  and Assiout now approaching completion.   The works already completed and  in course of construction have cost Eng-.  land since 1S85 something over ?35,O00J-  000, but the returns seem to justify the  outlay.    So  sir -William Barstin, who  cleaned the White Nile of the sudd, has,  with earl Cromer's approval, proposed  to dam one of the great lakes at the  head of the Nile, and thus form a gigantic  reservoir  which   will   be  to  Upper  Egypt and the Soudan what the present  works aro to Lower Egypt.   The proposals are to construct a reservoir in Lake  Tsaina;   to store  sufficient  water  both  for Egypt and the Soudan and at the  same time improve the navigation of the  Blue Nile" during the summer months.  To, supplement that by utilizing the Upper  Nile  water," 'at  present  wasted   in  swamps, either by embanking the Bahr-  el-Gabel or by using the Bahr-el-Zerahf  as an additional channel for the summer  supply, and finally to construct a reservoir at Lake Albert-Nyanza sufficiently  large to supply the wants of Egypt and  those parts of the Soudan north of Khartoum.   The first proposition will involve  some serious diplomatic difficulties, as  Lake Tsama belongs to Abyssinia.

The presence of guests or the guest  is universal. In the cottage or in the  castle there will be the visitors washed-  out and weary from the rigors of the  London season. One week in the country will restore them' as not tonic ever  invented can do. Nothing can be imagined more wholesomely restful than  this life, When the weather permits,  most Of the day is spent out-of-doors.  The hours pass in the dreamily desultory  sort of fashipn, with nothing particular  to mark them.. One reads, one talks,  and above all things one writes letters.  The English, who hardly ever use the  telephone, and who keep up acquaintances once made and approved forever,  write more letters thau any other peo-  and dab" with brick, and re-tiling part  of the roof. The interior was left almost  as it had been, and was remarkably curious and interesting. The ceiling was  crossed by heavy oak rafters, almost  black, .'and so low that-one's hat brushed  them. There were two groups of sniall-  paned windows, -and- an enormous fireplace inside which one could sit. The  woman who lived in the house had complained of this, as the chimney was simply a large-hole through which the  smoke issued and the rain entered. So  it had been closed, and the vast fireplace fitted with a modern range. This  woman, by the way, was not the least  interesting feature of the cottage. She  was singularly nice-looking, and ladylike in manner, and iny friend told me  that her husband's family had once been  people of consequence in the district and  lords of a small manor still standing..  So here was a sort of peaceable, untragic  Tess of the D'Urbervillcs.  The drive usually was interrupted by  dropping in somewhere for tea.. Once  we stopped at the inn of a tiny village  grouped round a great, breezy common,  where in the queer old inn parlor wo  were given an excellent tea. I' do not  believe that in Central France there is  a hotel where you get n bad dinner, or  in England an inn or hostelry of any  kind where you are given a bad tea.  Generally, however, our teas were partaken of at the houses of friends of my  hostess.  Tea is, as I have said before, the most  attractive meal in England. Rich or  poor, high or low, all the world knows  how to serve it, to make it appetizing  and dainty. In the placid Surrey country homes it was an out-of-door function  to which visitors dropped in. It seemed  to represent English outdoor life at its  most gracious best. Under shelter of  some great tree the tea-table was' set  forth by servants, and about it, on the  cropped, fine turf.. chairs were drawn  up, and family and guests assembled.  It makes one of the prettiest moments of  the day. The Avomen. in their light-  colored summer muslins and brilliant  parasols, come sweeping across the grass  from the tennis ground or the house.  The trim- maid servant, in her black  dress and shoulder-strapped apron, after  the tray is arranged, leaves. Such men  as happen to be present do the waiting.

The interpleader motion of the sheriff  of South Kootenay in the case of Van  Norman vs. MacKinnon came before'  judge Forin yesterday.

There are at present 20,000  men employed in gathering in the wheat  offour'coachesTbaggage car and engine,  with William Mosher at the. throttle.  Chester Flagloe was fireman and conductor H. S. Merriman of Sodus Point  was in charge of the train. The train  was running nearly 40 miles an hour.  Approaching the station, at Fairville,  there is a curve and gravel pit. For  somo reason the engine jumped the  track while passing the gravel pit. The  force of the accident turned the engine  around, throwing the five cars on their  sides. The train load of some hundred  and fifty passengers was thrown into tlie  ditch. The engine and all the cars were  badly broken in several places. This  acounts for the large number of persons  scalded.  Help was quickly summoned from the  neighboring houses and all the -assistance possible was rendered. . Word was  sent to Sodus and Newark for physicians and a special containing five doctors left Newark at 6:45 o'clock. Upon  its arrival the Newark passengers were  placed aboard and hurried to Newark.  Rev. Dr. Burgess, one of the injured,  was for 20 years pastor of the Park  Presbyterian church at New York, and is  the father" of W. C. and F. H. Burgess,  editors of-"the. Arcadian Weekly Gazette  of this place. He is73 years old, and it  is doubtful .whether ��� he-will -recover.  Mrs. Burgess is among the seriously injured.'      . '   ,z.  Coroner. 'Thatcher took charge of  Mosher's body and will hold an inquest  The news of the disaster spread with  remarkable rapidity, and upon the arrival of the special at Newark- with the  injured aboard a .most pathetic scene  was enacted. Friends and relatives were  anxiously awaited, and it was pitiful  to see the injured and dying carried  from the train by their friends.  The private car of superintendent  Spencer Mead was attached to the train.  His wife was seriously ill. The car- was  derailed, but the occupants were not injured. The cause of the wreck is not  known exactly, but it is thought the  rails spread. There have been heavy  rains recently, and probably in this way  the tracks were" loosened.'- When interviewed by an Associated Press correspondent the officials of the road had  nothing to say. ��� ���   ��� ���  Howard Tubbs, the ticket agent at  Sodus Point, who was on the engine  with   engineer   William   Mosher, ��� was j  badly scalded and otherwise injured.  -He died shortly before 11 o'clock on the  hospital train at Newark.
