 ESTABLISHED   1892  TUESDAY .MORNING,   AUGUST  27,   1901  DAILY EDLTfON  BRATNOBER   AND   BRADEN  'JJ-2.1Ja.-SHJ  ARE AT ROSSLAND LOOKING- OVER  THE LE ROI AND WAR EAGLE.  Outside   Mine   Managers  Said to  Be  Plugging for McDonald������Geiser of  Oregon on the Ground.  ROSSLAND, August 26.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���In addition "to Henry  Bratnober, tlie San Francisco mining engineer, whose presence here at this time  continues to excite local comment, is  William Braden, formerly superintendent-of the United States assay oflice at-  Helena, Montana, and now the western  representative, of the United States  Smelter Trust. Like Mr. Bratnober, Mr.  ' Braden has nothing to say for publication, but he is unquestionably here in  connection with Bratnober and the Le  Roi mines. . Both men went through the  ��� Le Roi and War Eagle offices and surface works today and spent the morning on the hill, and it is rumored that  .both these properties may in some way  lie included in a.,pending, deal'for all  of the Red. Mountain mines.  E. Si Clouston, general manager of the  Bank of Montreal, arrived here this  evening,  Al Geiser, the Oregon man who has  made a'contract to work the Le Roi  mines and the Northport smelter, is  making preparations to start. One of  his sons arrived this evening and Geiser  himself is expected tomorrow.  A rumor, evidently inspired, was current this afternoon that one of the last  official acts of Whitaker Wright was" to  re-engage the. services of Bernard McDonald as manager of the Le Roi group  for a further period,"of three years. As  manager McDonald is entering into various contracts in connection with the  mines and smelter, the reconstructed Le  Roi directors will have their, hands full  at the start if they discharge McDonald  and repudiate his recently made engagements.  It is openly stated that the recent  meeting of mine managers held at: the  Le Roi offices hero last week a warm  cable message Avas sent to London  strongly supporting McDonald, and advising that he be retained as manager.  ���Just/at present it is said that the: cable  business from Rossland; is:,,.uh"usually  brisk, but the real work was done oyer;;  six weeks ago,. and cables now won't  save the .manager.. McDonald is making a hard fight, but it is generally believed that he is over-matched and  beaten. Tlie, striking miners are hopefully looking for a conference, with tile-  management and believe that a satisfactory agreement can be arrived: at. ������> ���": -  Geiser Fixes the Rate of Wag'' s ���  ROSSLAND,  August, -26.���[Associated  - Press.]���Work will be resumed at the'  Le Roi mine at once. Albert Geiser.  the ��� well-known contractor and mine  operator of Baker City, Oregon, arrived  vin the city tonight to get the work under * way. He recently obtained an important contract-from the Le Roi company and comes prepared to fulfill the  contract. When interviewed by a representative of the Rossland Miner, Geiser  said he expected to enter on the contract at once. He hopes to obtain s  full crew in this city at an early date.  ^=if-not=immediatel>vas=a=large-numbei-of=  miners who left after the last payday  expected to return on learning of the  resumption of work, for the reason that  wages and general conditions are much  more favorable here than in any camp  in the Northwest. Mr. Geiser states the  wages and hours will be: Machinemen,  $3.50, eight hours; shovelers and unskilled'labor underground," $2.50, eight  hours; common labor, surface, $2.50:  carpenters, $3.50, nine hours; machine  blacksmiths, $4, ten hours; engineers,  $3.50 and $4, eight and ten hours.  Geiser has opened an office at the coiner of Spokane street and Third avenue.  will be submitted to the property owners tomorrow. They will also decide  the riuestion of the new name of the proposed amalgamated cities. Three  names, Miner, Empire, and Amalga, will  be submitted.  B. Lequime of Midway will erect a  sawmill here immediately.  E. R. Shannon, John Layeux, and C.  F. Harrigan, all of whom are practical  minors, - have leased -the Hummingbird  mine, north fork of Kettle "river, for  six months. They will continue the extension of the tunnel and within a fortnight expect'to bo able to ship several  carloads weekly to the Granby smelter.  The Hummingbird is a high-grade proposition, the returns from previous shipments to the smelter here averaging $20  per ton. A large portion of the stock  is owned in Spokane.  MAKING NEW DISCOVERIES  LOTS OF SMELTER RUMORS  THREE DIFFERENT SCHEMES NOW  BEING DISCUSSED.  One Man Will Build a Smelter to Treat  an Output of Sixty Tons of  Oro Per Day.  In the Canadian Alps.  FIELD, August 26.���Mr. Whymper's  party returned here on the evening of  the 23rd from a month's exploration of  the Yoho valley and contiguous country.  Preliminary examination from Mount  Cathedral showed that a new and easy  route up the valley could be made by  keeping on high ground instead of at the  bottom. This course was adopted and a  new trail made. On July 30th the party  descended into an attractive valley off  the main valley to the'west. The name  Upper Yoho is suggested for this. On  the 31st two peaks were ascended at the  head of Upper Yoho valley7 and two  passes discovered, one a glacier pass  leading across the Emerald group to  Field and the other trending westward.  On August 3rd Whymper and Klucker  walked through the Upper Yoho valley  to Field in ten hours by the Glacier pass  and returned to the camp on August  7th, and on. the Sth crossed the pass  from the^Upper Yoho valley into an entirely new valley, for which the name  Verdant , valley is suggested, and got  into ..Field in 15 hours. , On the 14th the  ascent was made of a mountain called  Insulated Peak, to inspect the high  mountains of Waputtchk range. Mount  Habel, sometimes called Hidden Peak,  was ascended on August 15th,: Mount  Collis on" the 19th, and Trolltilderto on  the*21st. The whole of the Emerald  group has been explored and its princK  pal points ascended, mainly by Rev. J.  Outram, who has been attached to the  party for the last fortnight and has  proved a valuable coafljutator. On August 22nd, in company with'the guides,  he'madc the new pass from Yoho valley  by the Lower Bow lake to La?gan in 12  hours, ���Tlievweather was bad'until the  end of the journey, "but" since{ then has  been fine.- Photography : and ���instrumental observations were much impeded  by smoke and forest fires. '-���  Accident at Greenwood.  GREENWOOD, August. 26.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���A lad-named Jeffrey  Robertson, son of the C. P. R. station  foreman at Greenwood, last Saturday  morning had a narrow escape from  what, at the time, threatened to result,  in a serious if not fatal injury. A team"  attached to Cameron, Brothers' passenger bus ran away from the C. P. V{.  depot just before the morning train left  for Robson. Young Robertson seeing  them start bhdeavoreel to stop them,  but was knocked down and rendered  unconscious. Upon examination the  doctor found that lie had receive'd ~a  severe blow on the side erf the head and  tliat he was much bruised in several  parts of the body besides. Later he recovered consciousness and is much bet-  terutex1 ny -��� ���      - ������  Low Treatment Rate Offered  SANDON, August 26.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���Tho Byron N. White company is cutting down the force at the  Slocan Star mine. Negotiations aro on  with the Selby and Trail smelters for  for a rate which will permit the White  company to ship the ore in a.crude state  and save the cost of milling and the loss  which always attends the concentrating  of the high-grade ore of the Slocan.  There is reason to believe that th'  smelter people will give a rate away below anything ever before offered for  lead ores.  A man named Monkhouse, recent! *.*  from the St. Eugene mill at Moyie, got  hurt at the Minnesota Silver company's  mill last night. He fell into the pulley  on the main line_ shaft and suffered a  compound* fracture of the right leg.  Fire destroyed the finest part of the  green timber in the Carpenter creek  gulch on Sunday and Monday. This timber-was on the big hill between Carpenter creek and Cody creeks, just back of  Cody. The fire is still burning p��ad the  Noble Five has a gang of men protecting their flume.  ��   News Noies From Grand Forks.  GRAND FORKS, August 26.���[Special  to The Tribune.]��� Q. C. Hodge, district  superintendent of the Vernon & Nelson  Telephone Company, has returned here  from an inspection of the company's  lines as far west as Camp McKinney.  He was accompanied by the secretary,  R. Kerr-Houlgate. who also visited the  Similkameen and Okanagan.  Frederick Elliot, barrister, late of Nelson, has opened a law office here.  The by-law providing for the amalgamation of Columbia and Grand Forks  E. S. Clouston, general manager of  the Bank of Montreal, arrived in "Greenwood yesterday, having come in by way  of Camp McKinney. He is making one  of his periodical official tours in the interests of tha ba.ik.  W. T. Hunter, manager of the Greenwood branch of the Hunter-Kendrick  Company's Boundary mercantile business, went out on today's train, en  route to his old home in North Dakota.  He is now convalescent after a severe  illness that extended over several  weeks. Ho will be absent about twc.  month.'*.  Granby Company Elect Officers.  MONTREAL, August 26.���The flrst  general meeting of the Granby Consolidated Mining and Smelting and Power  Company took place today in the head  office of the company in the Canadian  Life building. Mr. Miner occupied the  chair. . The company's by-laws were  adopted, and the annual meeting was  fixed for October 2nd, 1902. The following directors and officers of the company  were elected: S. H. C. Miner, president;  J. P. Graves, vice-president and general  manager; J. H. McKechnie, Fayette  Brown, and A. C. Flumerfelt, assistant  general managers; W. H. Robinson and  A. L. White, secretaries; N. H. Galer,  assistant to the manager; R. R. Mc-  Aulay, assistant secretary; G. W. Woos-  ter, treasurer; W. A. Matley and Gardner Stevens, auditors.  Fired in Self-Defence.  CHICAGO, August. 26.���David Lind-  skog, son of the Rev. Herman Lindskog,  pastor of St. Angsgarius Swedish Episcopal church for 15 years, was shot and  killed yesterday by police officer James  H. Wiley. The shooting took place within 50 feet of the rectory, and the minister hearing the shots rushed out of the  rectory and aided the policeman to lift  his dying son into the ambulance. The  policeman declared he fired while defending himself against an attack by a  band of young men, who had been in the  habit of congregating at Oak and Sedgwick streets. Wiley was badly cut and  bruised in the encounter. Seeing that  he was unable to cope with the gang  he drew his revolver and fired. Later,  three young men, said to have been  companions of Lindskog in the fight,  were arrested.  NORTHPORT, August 26.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Unless all indications  fail, other smelting plants are to be  built near Northport in the near future.  Dr. George H. Wells, owner of the hospital here' and a close personal friend of  James Breen. the pioneer smelter man  of this district, has recently made purchases of real estate in the Onion Creek  valley, about five miles south of town.  One of his investments was the Peter  Ellisohn ranch, which lies on the south  bank of the Columbia river at Little  Dalles. ��� Dr. Wells paid' $5000 for the  ranch, and it. is said that it is intended  for, a smelter site. At Little Dalles, the  whole volume. of the Columbia river  passes through a narrow gorge, and it  would be possible to dam .the stream  and secure almost unlimited power. It  is claimed that Dr. Wells and associates  have seen the excellence of the location  for a smelter and intend.to erect a plant  there which will utilize the power furnished by the Dalles and thus add to  their profits the cost of steam power,  which amounts_to; a very considerable  sum in the course ot a year's operation  of a big smelter.   ." ��  'H.! W. Brooks, who has.been in charge  of Oliver Durant's property z&t Sheep  Creek falls, left Saturday for the east,  where he'.will purchase machinery for a  sawmill, to be installed immediately on  his return. The"mill is to run by power  furnished by the falls, arid it is. rumored  that its: installation is but the preliminary'.'step inthe development of plans:  laid long since by, Mr. Durant for the  improvement of the Sheep Creek water,  power. Among other projects said to  be enteftaineel by Mr. Durant; are a big  smelter and refinery; an electric power  plant, and a .new town, all to be built  on his property "at Sheep. Creek falls,  which is located. on the Red Mountain  railway; about three mues north of this  place, and thirteen miles from Rossland.  :--.John- W.: Waits,- a -wealthy,, oil oper-  * ator of Oil City, Pennsylvania, is-,also  considering the erection" of a sriielter.  His plant is to be built.on Cedar creek,  seven miles southeast of Boundary and  about fifteen miles from Northport. Mr.  Waits has spent considerable money in  opening up a number of properties on  Cedar creek and is hampered by lack,, of  transportation. At the Lakeview, one  of his properties, there are now ten cars  of ore on the dump, which carries good  values, but cannot be shipped "because  of the cost of hauling over the rough  mountain roads. Mr. Waits intends to  bring the smelter'to the ore, as he cannot profitably ship the ore to the smelter, and intends to build a small smelter with a capacity of about 60 tons per  day. The plant will probably prove a  great stimulus to mining all through the  lower Pond de'Oreill and Cedar Creek  country, which is very rich, but without  adequate facilities- for shipment and  treatment of its ores.  the czar's presence at the maneuvres  which are -of great importance to the  nation." Whether the czar himself suggested the visit, M. Loubet replied:  "These visits are not decided on without a previous exchange of views, which  has-been progressing for some time. I  personally inspected, the negotiations  which led to the result now known.  When I learned that the czar intended  to review the German fleet in the Baltic,  I deemed it more important than ever  to secure a visit to France, and I myself,  with the co-operation of M. Delcasse,  prepared this great event, for which the  negotiations were pursued with. the  greatest secrecy." M. Loubet is further.  \ reported as saying, that thanks to the  Franco-Russian alliance war with China  had been averted. He added,"that up to  now the programme for. the journey  accepted by the Russian chancellor did  not include a visit.to Paris;  OVER IN THE SIMILKAMEEN  ALL  THE  TALK  IS   NEW   FINDS  AND RAILWAYS,  The Tribune Is the Only Newspaper  That Keeps a Correspondent  on the Ground.  STEWART RIVER DISTRICT  =Commissioner=Cleared.  ATLIN, August 17.���The royal, commission to investigate charges against  the gold commissioner and other government officials, met on the 12th instant. Two or three complaints respecting the granting of leaves of absence  on placer claims were lodged, but these  were of an unimportant nature, and apparently arose through a misinterpretation of the law ia each case. Belyca,  K. C, appeared for the -gold commissioner; Sawers for the complainants,  whilst Jenns watched the proceedings  on behalf of the crown. The commission sat for a shon time only, and  closed yesterday at 3 p. m. Chief Justice  McColl leaves Atlin today for Bennett.  He will probably pay a visit to Dawson  before returning to the coast.  Will Keep the St. Lawrence Open.  MENOMINEE, Mich., August 26.���A  deal is about to be closed for the purchase of the ice crusher Algoma, which  was used to break up the fields in Green  Bay last winter, F. H. Clergue of Sault  Ste Marie, the. wealthy railroad and  steamship owner, is the intended purchaser. It is sai'd thai he will use the  boat on the St. Lawrence river between  Montreal and the Gulf, in order that  the steamers of the Algoma Steamship  Company may navigate the river all  winter. *  Something Slow Wanted.  OTTAWA, August 26.���Hon. Mr. Muloek, in an interview, says that it is necessary for the Australian trade that  Canada send shipments from Atlantic,  handicapped by no" haul across the continent. It wants a sailing summer fleet  from Montreal, calling at Quebec, St.  John, and Halifax, reaching Adelaide  first, then Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. He thinks the vessels could get  return cargoes of sugar from Queensland.    The Visit Was Prearranged  PARIS, August 26.���The Patrie today  charged that president Loubet, in conversation with a prominent person two  days ago, with having made the following remark: "I always considered the  Franco-Russian alliance exceedingly  ���useful and fruitful to our country. I  think the moment oppotune to obtain  It Will Pay-Well.  VICTORIA, August 26.���According to  advices  received  from Dawson  by  the  Hating,   considerable   mining   development is being done on the Stewart and  its tributaries this summer. There are  in   round   numbers   over   C00   men   engaged,, 230   of   them   being   on" Dublin  gulch,  Clear  and "Haggard  creeks; "an  equal   number  is  employed, along  the  main river to Fraser Falls, and about  450 beyond the falls', on the two main  forks.   Good -prospects  are reported   to.  have  been discovered  on several new  streams .that   promise   development of  the  most  gratifying .character,' and   it  is thought that on the south fork some  important strikes have been-made. ���-,-.,  . J.  A.  Cameron;.a well known_Klon-  , dike miner, has made a trip along tlie  Stewart.-going as far as the Falls, and  says .that  he^ met several parties  who  reported   strikes   recently   made   along  small   creeks  and   says  there  are   be-  , tween  CO  and-^75  men; rocking* on the  heads of bars .along the main stream."  They are; taking out from $4'vto $6 per  day and prefer this remuneration to the  more  uncertain results of prospecting.  Joe Barrett,; a mine' owner of Eldorado and Bonanza has.feturned to*Daw-  '.'son from the Stewart river. He says lie  '. is fully convinced that" there will sbnie  day be opened in that part of thb: world  a field that will be second to none, and  also.that there is nothing there at this  time to  warrant a stampede.  Recently  at the goyernment auction Mr;,Barrett  purchased 1C5 claims :on Barlow creek.  He owns all hut twenty claims of the  whole creek.' He took a gang of men and  three   tons   of  provisions   in"  order   to  prospect his:proporty;%Tp.do ihe,assessment y'prk he says4hat it .will' eost;thc  handsome sum  of ��32.000, yet he proposes  to  expend  more  if necessary  to  find0what is there,   f  Gold has been rocked out, of these  bars since 1886 and it .was a somewhat  noted stream before Forty-mile creeks  were found. They never paid -very big  but have been worked every summer  by a large number of men and have always been looked upon as a safe "grubstake" proposition. On account of the  extreme fineness of the gold, quicksilver  is used to catch it in the rocker bed.  Twer men a week ago" made a fair  strike on a small stream flowing in about  12 miles above the Falls, on the right  limit. The discovery is located about  five miles from the Stewart proper, and  it yielded 70 cents to the pan, bedrock  being struck at a depth of five feet. The  creek was all staked when Mr. Cameron  visited  it.  A large number of prospectors are en-  cam pjid^around the Fraser Falls, most  "6f"them~"preparihgrto~push��� iir~over~the~  forks 70 miles above. Reports of fair  strikes are given by some of them. One  report is that a discovery has been made  at the South Fork, about 50 miles from  its confluence. Another report tells of a  strike on the North Fork, 20 miles from  its confluence. If true, this will be the  first find of gold made on that branch.  The South Fork is navigable for heavily  laden canoes for 125 miles above the  confluence. There is an abundance of  game in that section. On the McQues-  ten branch of the Stewart���the most important tributary���are located the creeks  where the main mining is being done  this season. On Clear creek SO men are  busy shoveling into the sluices and considerable money is being taken out. The  best part of the paystreak is between  discovery and 57 above where the most  part of the work is being done. There  are as many men on Taggart creek as  on Clear, and pay has been struck in  many places in quantities which will  warrant summer and winter work. Bedrock is shallow, having a depth of 10  feet. Sixty men are working in Dublin  Gulch and about a dozen claims are  yielding well. Counting in Clear, Taggart and Dublin Gulch creeks, Mr. Cameron says the output for this summer  will reach over half a million dollars.  Smashed all Previous Records.  NEW YORK, August 26.���Bobby Walthour of Atlantic in a match race motor-  paced against Johnny Nelson of Chicago  defeated the latter tonight, and in doing  so smashed all previous indoor paced  bicycle records from one to fifteen miles  inclusive. Walthour jumped into the  lead at the start and rode rings around  the plucky little Chicagoan, who had  the misfortune to lose his pace frequently and one of his motors broke  down. In the fourth mile Nelson  changed pace for the first time and lost  no distance in doing so. After that  point he never had a chance and was  riding without pace at the finish, Walthour winning by 14 laps.  Were Denied Admission.  VICTORIA, August 26.���Ten Portuguese gypsies seeking entry to Canada  at this port were refused landing by inspector Ellis. It is said these arc the  vanguard of several hundred others now  at Seattle, where the refusals returned.  PRINCETON, August 22.���[Special to;  The Tribune.]���The Roche-River camp  continues to excite much interest/arid  during the week the following Pririce-  tohians left for the new El Dorado: Sanr  Spencer, T. J. Swansborough, Charles J.  Mcintosh, Van Mills, and Wiuianv Martin. C. Christien came in from the camp  yesterday to record some locations, and  reports that the hills are full: of prospectors. "Several new finds have been  made, proving thatthe mineralized area  is much larger than the original locators had any idea- of. He and his  partner, James Hamilton, -located "thec  Minto, Vernon, and Chickadel. On the  Vernon they are now engaged Jn sink-,  ing. a shaft. The veins of this camp are  narrow, but the ore, in-many case running up-into the thousands in value.'as  the richest yet discovered in the Similkameen. The camp.has been little prospected until the past few weeks, when a  typical rush set in.    :.      ������ ��� ���'������'���': x ":'-.  Forest fires are raging all over the  district, especially along, the Similkameen valley between: Sterling creek and  Bromley's ranch.

V ��� ������-_ '������  Denis Murphy of Ashcroft, member  for West Yale,-when here recently informed the correspondent of The Tribune that there will be no:'further-delay  in the.repair of the Summit City camp  and Roche River trails. Instructions  have been issued from. Victoria to start  work. An appropriation of $500 was  provided for each trail. The work on  the Roche River trail will be given to  Gus Pouwels and Charles Bonnevier. the  original discoverers of the camp. They  located the Goden Crown cairn in the  summer of 1896, and by their faith and  persistency have received this recognition at the hands, of the government.  Mr. Murnhy also stated that the srover-.i^  ment will build a jail, immediately at  the back of the new provincial building,  now rapidly nearing completion. Two  "hundred^dollars^has^also^been-provided5  for the Copper Mountain trail, pending  the expenditure of the appropriation for  the new  government  wagon  road.  Mr. Barnes, a well-known Vancouver  livery stable keeper, has purchased a  fine lot of driving horses from William  Manning. He took the band over the  Hope Mountain trail to Hone, where  they are to be shipped by rail to Vancouver.  Word was received in town during the  week that the survey parties in the field  for tho provincial government, with a  view to finding a pass through tne Hope  range for the proposed Coast-Kootenay  railway, were being followed by another  party of engineers. It is surmised here  that the second outfit represents the  Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern railway.  This makes the survey more interesting  than ever, as when the legislature next  meets, there will be an abundance of  data bearing on this much discussel  question. Here the opinion is unanimous that there does exist a pass  through the Hope range sufficiently, low  to permit of the building of a railway.  Honorable Richard 'McBride, minister  of mines, accompanied by Denis Murphy  of Ashcroft, member for West Yale, have  been here investigating the requirements of-Princeton and the district. ��� On  Sunday last, under the guidance\of mining recorder Hunter and colonel Robert  Stevenson, they took in a number of the  claims on Copper mountain", and both  express themselves highly dengue*:!,  with the showings. It is the first time  that a minister of the crown, in his official capacity, has visited here, and the  occasion was taken advantage of by the  correspondent in obtaining from Mr.  McBride an expression of opinion on  several subjects of local interest. Thn  burning topic of the day���the govcr.*.-  ment's railway policy���drew from the  minister the followin---: "I wish to  deny emphatically that a proper survey  of the Hope mountains for a fc'asible  pass for a railway, has ever been made.  A certain portion of the press has attacked the government for sending out  an engineering party, claiming that  others interested in the construction of  a railway for tlio Mope range have already made surveys. This is not. the  case, and no attempt to properly locate  a lino of railway through this portion  of the proposed Coast-Kootenay railway  route has ever been made. The government proposes to make a compre  hensive survey,  and  for  that purpose*  has placed in the field a party of prominent engineers  under the direction of  ex-governor Edgar Dewdney.   We hope,  and firmly believe, that the mission will  be successful in discovering a feasible  pass.   The information plans and other,  data resulting from this survey will be  laid before the legislature.    With this  before each member an intelligent discussion can be had on the subject that  may be fruitful in arriving at some understanding or basis on which to negotiate for. the early building of the Coast-  Kootenay railway.   The survey !s an independent one, and it is all nonsense  to say thatjt is being done.for the bene- |  fit of any particular railway company.  It is being done for the benefit of the  people of this  province and for them  only.   Beside, when negotiations for the  building- bf the proposed road dp come  before the legislature, .the government  will  make  ample  provision  for  a  full  reimbursement of all moneys expended  now on the survey."    Continuing, Mr.  McBride pointed out that at the time o'  negotiations  for the  construction  of a  railway   between   the   Coast  and;  the  Boundary district, during the last session, that E: V. Bodwell, solicitor for the  Victoria, Vancouver ;& Eastern railway,  refused to give any security, for ^building  through the Hope range.   On behalf of  his company he had agreed to buituing  30 miles from each end.   When it came  to discussing  the  Hope  range portion  he had declined to-go on.    une reason  for this, in Mr.. McBride's opinion, was  that" a   practicable   pass   through '.-���.���'the,:  range had  not at that time been, located.'   Regarding the'appointment of-a  gold commissionerfor the SimiiKameen,  with   headquarters   here,   the.! minister  said:    "One of the ^.principal objects of  my trip was to look over the ground  with this end in view.   The government  has promised that a gold commissioner  should be appointed.'   The new government buildings now nearing completion  here contain offices for-such an official.  Oh my return to Victoria the matter will  be taken up, and in all probability a selection made."   As a result of the minister's visit'an expenditure; of $200 was  authorized on the trail'to Copper mountain. ��� Work on..clearing-.:and repairing  both" the Summit City camp and Roche  River camp trails, for which an appropriation of ?500 has been made, is io  start at once.

Shaffer of the "Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steel  Workers tonight" declared absolutely  that he had no knowledge of such proceedings, and that if such a move had  been started-it did not have the official  sanction of the organization. Nevertheless the subject will'not down, and tonight it is said the conciliatory committee of the Civic Feueration, already  prominent in the matter, is fully prepared to carry on negotiations and \vili  if necessary endeavor to secure the good  offices of archbishop Ireland, bishop  Potter, Daniel Hanna.and Seth Low  and members of their organization to  give such prominence to the committee  that the proposal "will bear with the  steel company. In the meantime both  sides remain firm."The steel people point  to the gains they have made all along  the line in the way of securing men  and starting plants, while the amalgamated   officials ^ay_tliat   instead   of  "lMin^~gr6irnd=tlre���associ at ion- is-gain5"  irig every day, and while that the combination has succeeded in starting a  few plants they are not turning out mercantile matter and are losing money and  are breaking valuable machinery. The  steel people ridicule the claims of the  association and point to the fracuire in  the ranks. .    Testing Race for Boilers.  LONDON, August 2C���The Admiralty  has issued a highly technical record of  the boiler testing race between the  cruiser Hyacinth, fitted with water  tube boilers, and the cruiser Minerva,  having cylindrical, or Scotch boilers.  Rear admiral sir William Domville,  chairman of the boiler committee, "refrains from expressing an opinion, but  he points out that the Hyacinth's coal  consumption was 550 tons, and that the  Minerva's was 451 tons. The maximum  horse power developed during a certain  two hours' run was 8700 for the Minerva, and 10,000 for the Hyacinth, without the latter perceptibly gaining on  the Minerva. Radius of action so far  as ��� coal was concerned at 7000 horse  power, was for the Hyacinth, 2930 miles,  and for the Minerva, 3000 miles.  Wiman's Company Fails.

Tennessee Town Burned.  MEMPHIS, August 26.���Tiptonville,  the county seat of Lake county, Tennessee, was almost destroyed by fire late  yesterday.   The loss is not yet known.  LONDON, August 26.���A  from lord Kitchener,' dated  today, says: "Three officers and 65 meu  who were sent north of Ladybrand,  Orange River Colony, on the right of  Elliot's column, were surrounded on unfavorable ground and captured by a" superior force on August 22nd. One mail  was killed and four wounded. The prisoners were released. Am holding an inquiry. Have received a long letter from  Steyn, containing an argumentative  statement of the Boer's case and saying  he' will continue fighting; also a short  letter from De Wet to the same effect.'  Botha wriics acknowledging the receipt  of my proclamation, and protesting  against it. lie says the Boers" intend  fighting. On the other hand the surrenders lately have increased considerably."  LONDON, August 26.���Newton Crane,  on behalf of the American embassay,  has presented another claim to the  South African Compensation Commission, that Charles B. Nelken, a native  of Prussia, and a naturalized: American  citizen. Major-General -sir John Dar-  agh, representing the foreign office; t  pointed out that the claimant's letter '  said lie had joined the Boers iu order  to ��� protect his property seized by the  Boers, and-remarked: "No person who  has fought against Great Britain will  receive any compensation on the recommendation of the commission." Nel-'  ken, said Mr. Crane, was a man who  had laid down his arms and resumed his-  neutral status at the time he was^ reported, and was ontitled to the benefits  of his neutral status. ���  ��� Another dispatch from lord Kitchener  says: "Since August 19th, 32 Boers have  been killed, 179 have been made prison-'  ers, and 185 have surrendered, including  Kruger, a nephew of the ex-president.  The columns are meeting with no appreciable opposition in Cape Colony. The  rebels and armed bands are hiding and  avoiding our columns ..with some success,  goneral Beatson alone 'having- been in  contact with the command of Scheeper.  whom he is driving north."  Kruger Interviewed,  LONDON, August 27��� The Daily. Telegraph publishes today a long interview  with Mr. Kruger at Hilveisun on lord  Kitchener's latest proclamation. The  correspondent says: Mr. Kruger, who  seemed greatly improved in health;  spoke vehemently and with intense feeling, rejecting the idea that anything had  been changed except the attitude of the  British. He insisted that the tactics of  the Boers were still as regular as at the  beginning of the war. Tiicy were smaller  :and were divided into small parties because the British had divided their  forces into innumerable small columns.  He declared that ever since the capture  of Bloemfontein the British had trampled upon the code of international law.  =As^for_provision transports_and_cattle_  the British are continually seizing, Mr.  Kruger said these were intended not for  the Boer commandoes, which live from  hand to mouth, but for the women and  children. He contended that lord Kitchener's proclamation itself recognized  that the Boers had a regular administration and army. The proclamation could  have but one effect���to embitter and intensify resistance. He said the question  whether any protest against it woulel  be issued was still under consideration,  but this matter was of little importance  to the burghers who did not look to  Europe for approval, but to America.  Having characterized tne proclamation  as the blackest crime committed against  the Boers, Mr. Kruger closed the interview by calmly calling heaven to witness that the story of a Dutch conspiracy against the British was an "abominable lie, the most mischievous and  diabolical lie ever coined since man first  appeared in the world." He said, however, that peace was still possible on the  basis of give and take, and that the  Boers were ready to make reasonable  sacrifices and to give satisfactory guarantees on the basis of independence and  free pardon to colonial Africans.  Came to Learn Conditions of Labor.  NEW YORK, August 26.���On tho  steamship Ethiopia, which arrived tonight, came twelve British workingmen,-  who have been sent by an English paper  to tour the country and study its trades.  The men were selected by popular vote.  A. Nicol Smithson, who will act as conductor for the expedition, says: "We  shall visit Washington, Pittsburg, Philadelphia, Cleveland, East Liverpool,  Buffao. Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal.  The delegates came over here to study  questions in which the British artisan  is vitally interested. We will inquire  into the conditions of the American  wage earner, how they are housed and  live, their hours, unions, and other  things of interest to us on the other  side."  Naval Officers Too Talkative.  WASHINGTON, August 26.���The navy  department has written a letter to captain Forsyth, asking for an explanation of the interview with him bearing  upon the approaching inquiry into admiral Schley's conduct in the Spanish  war which was published today,  si  ;*  MSI  '!���!

Stor.-tf-x���I have a large warehouse for storing household or other goods.  H. A. Prosser.  There are complaints as to the way  in which appropriations for roads and  trails are expended; but never a word  is heard of the schemes that are concocted to influence the government to  expend large sums on roads and trails  that are not needed. Recently a government agent was asked if the government  would build a bridge across a river and  make three miles of wagon road provided two Quarter sections of land in a  certain neighborhood were taken up for  actual settlement. The bridge and the  road would cost not less than $3000.  Another instance is cited of this abnormal craving for appropriations by self-  seeking individuals. A speculator purchased several small lots of land from a  railway company, and after selling one  lot for more than he paid for the several  lots, he is quite wrathy because the gov- ,  eminent does not at once make wagon J  roads to each of his unsold lot*". . East  and West Kootenay have been very liberally treated in the way of appropriations for roads and trails, and the discontented ones should realize that roads  and trails cannot be built to every isolated mineral claim and unworked preemption in the two districts.

Richardson, ex-M. P. of Lisgar,  Manitoba, now knows what it is to butt  his head against a party wall. He  claimed to be a Liberal, but not being  able to convince the party that his ideas  should be adopted, he rebelled, was  caught, tried, and is now undergoing  the punishment meted to him by the  party leaders. When in politics, if a  party man, do as your leaders order you  to do. When you become a leader powerful enough, adopt your ideas, and see  that your followers carry them out. A  political party is like an army; it must  obey its leaders to be successful.  Stragglers are of no use to an army;  independent quitters are of no use to  a political party. Men like Richardson  should keep out of politics. They are  not. forceful enough to lead," and not  powerful enough to keep in office once  they aro ejected, This may not be right;  but, it is politics, ''���'���-*->.��.<_  toto  to  9\  9}  LADIES' SUNSHADES  AT HALF PKICE.

Manitoba ought to beat the Roblin  government, and to that end the opposition should offer the province something better than the shreds and patches  of the Greenway party under Isaac  Campbell, K.C. A Campbelite opposition can have/no charms for the anti-  Sifton: Liberals, who took the province  away from the Greenway government  and away from the Laurier government.  A. party led by Isaac Campbell will mean  a'continuance- of Roblin government under a new name, just as a party led by  hon. R. P. Roblin has implied the continuance of Sifton methods with ; a  change in name only. Manitoba may  as well tolerate a Roblin government as  embrace a Campbell opposition. ..

Whin rayspictable English people go to  war, they don't expict to have to keep it  up foriyer. They'se other things to do.  But - th' Boers wudden't stop.

Nawthin' wud give us more  pleasure thin to provide good target  practice f'r ye'er gallant la-ads,' they  says. 'They need it,' says they.

A few clays were  sufficient to convince them that they  could npt make the work pay at the  price and they panie down the hill yesterday. The tunnel is now sajd to be in  exceptionally hard rock and another  150 or 200 feet remains to be driven  in ordor to catch the vein.  THIRD   AVENUE.   ROSSLAND.

The owners of the Gold Cure group on  Briggs creek which puts Into the south  fork of Kaslo creek, have completed the  survey of their claims and will apply  for a crown grant. There are six claims  and a fraction in this group, but tliey  are cut in two by the two original locations on the ledge. The group is owned  principally by Nelson men, namely,  Drive McBeath, Larry Peters, \V. 0. McLean, Charles Moore. Fred Stanwitz,  and the Bell Brothers. There has been  a great djal of work .done on .the.property, but it did not result in showing it  up to advantage, as' the tunnels were  run off the ledge. In surveying the group  however some very c.1,11 ore was uncovered, assays from the croppings giving returns of 132 ounces Bilvef and Ci  regular shipments are being made from  the "property. At present prices he considers Noble Five stock the best buy  in the Slocan. The owners of the Surprise on the top of the. Noble Five hill  have also a good showing. At the Payne  manager Garde is getting things 'in  good shape and predicts that he will  soon have the property looking as well  as at any former period in its history.  There are large quantities of concentrating ore on the dumps and in the  Payne stopes wliich will receive immediate attention. At the .Last Chance  Dr. Hendryx professes to be very successful in the experiments which he has  been making with the electric mineral  finder. The use which this system was  put to was the tracing nf the ledge  across the several claims in the group  and in this Dr. Hendryx professes to  be highly pleased with the results attained. At the Slocan Star work is going ahead nicely with a good force of  men and at the Ivanhoe the mill is employed in working up the dumps while  others are at work on development.  School Principal Selected  The board of school trustees met last  night and selected a successor to principal Soady, who has sent in his resignation to take effect September 30th.  They selected Albert Sullivan, who' is  now principal of the Revelstoke school.  Mr. Sullivan was offered the principal-  ship of the Rossland central school, but  preferred Nelson. He has a good reputation as a teacher. Principal Soally has  come to the conclusion that working for  $80 a month as a school teacher is not a  paying business, and will hegin tho  study of medicine after leaving Nelson,  There were a number of applications for  the position, and the trustees believe  they have made a good choice. If the  choice proves satisfactory the salary  should .not be less than ?125 a month,  Want to Borrow $2,400,000.  MONTREAL, August 26���At the annual meeting of the shareholders of the  C. P. R., which will be held on October  2d, the'shareholders will-be-asked to  adopt a resolution authorizing lhe issue  of bonds to the extent of ��480,000 sterling. The loan will be utilized to aid  in the acauisition of steam vessels and  (heir complement.  An informal discussion upon the question of the city's water supply was the  only interesting feature at the meeting  of the city council last evening. Th-*  subject was introduced by the city engineer, who informed the council that  the_ dam at the outlet of Cottonwood  lake had been completed but that- by  reason of the low stage of water there-  had as yet been no appreciable raise in  the level of the lake. While: he was up  tlio creek, however, he had recommended the diversion of a small stream  into; Cottonwood creek. He had represented to the mayor that the diversion  could be effected by a flume from 35 to  40 feet long and the "mayor: ordered the  necessary work to be done; As a result  this stream was added to the supply for  the .electric.light power wheels and.in  the' opinion of the city engineer it  would furnish sufneint water to make  up' the supply which the local smelter  was at present receiving from the city.  The supply of water from Whitewater  creek was at the present time equal to  520 inches, so that in addition to the  water of Cottonwood creek the city was  receiving all told 580- inches. With respect to the scarcity of water during the  two nights last week the city engineer  reported that the shortage was due to  the -burning out of the .Whitewater  fiume in a couple places by bush fires.  The necessary repairs to the flume had  since been made however and there was  at the present time no scarcity, there  being a considerable overflow at the dam  at, 6 o'clock. ' '    ���  Alderman   Patterson   directed   attention to the fact that there was a great  waste of water from the Anderson creek  supply. He said that he had visited the  flume   and   was   convinced   that   two-  thirds of the water which the flume was  carrying was  being wasted instead of  being   turned   into   the   reservoir.   He  also   complained   of   several   imperfections in the arrangements made for the  diversion of the water from Anderson  creek.   City   engineer   McCulloch   disagreed  with  alderman  Paterson  as  to  the waste of water, but it was decided  in an informal manner to have some repairs  made to the-flume and dam as  soon as a heavy rain sets in wliich will  permit of the shutting off of the Anderson creek supply for a day or more as  may be necessary.     -     *  ��� In this connection the council author-  Hzed=the=i)urchase=df^a,=cutoff "nozzle" for"  the Pelton water wheel in the electric  power station.  For this contrivance it  is claimed that it will effect a great saving of water in the running of the. electric  light plant in that it will render  possible the utilizing pf the entire head  of water during the light portion of the  night load on the machines without the  ; waste which goes on at present.  It was also decided to purchase a  number of transformers for the electric  light system so that certain lights in the  outlying portions of the city could be  operated from the alternating machine  instead of from the direct current machine, the idea to save the heavy wire  at present being used for these services  for other portions of the system.  City engineer McCulloch reported that  the sewer connection desired by Messr.s.  Emerson & Reisterer for their brewery  ���would cost about $450. The council  ordered the work to be done.  The application of the Lawrence  Hardware Company for the payment of  $6 for work in thawing out a water pipe  on the street was refused on the ground  that the work was not ordered by the  city.  Alderman Hamilton reported that he  had. interviewed John A. Turner, government agent, with respect to the payment of progress estimates on the new  school which was being built jointly by  the city and the provincial government,  and he had been informed by Mr. Turner that he had received no instructions  in the matter whatever. Alderman Hamilton intimated that it would be desirable to have the. school board communicate with the ggvernment so that somo  joint action with-respect to the payment  of progress estimates could be decided  upon,  THE   PROSPECTORS   EXCHANGE  No. 4>, K.
