Several horse races were won by local  horses, which had the field to themselves.  In the firemen's races, Greenwood  won the hub-and-hub, with Trail second. The wet test also fell to Greenwood for first; but there was some dispute as to the time of the Trail and  Mother Lode mine teams for second  place. Eventually the second prize was  awarded to the Mother:Lode team. The  Cornish, wrestling match was the last  event on the. program, and this caused  much amusement.  The day's proceedings wound up -with  a" Miners' Union ball. The Midway  band provided.'excellent music throughout, the day. ;  WILL SHIP ORE TO NELSON  Sunset Signs a Contract.  .

'  ROSSLAND, September 2.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Today has been the  quietest Labor Day ever witnessed in  Rossland; more like an ordinary Sunday than anything cjoo. Only a comparatively few journeyed away for the  holidays. The only excitement was  a tug-of-war this morning between the  fire brigade team and one chosen from  the masons and other workingmen on  the federal building. The firemen won  easily in three straight pulls. A ball  is being held at Miners' Union hall this  evening in honor of the day.  Further dispatches from England concerning tlie Le Roi meeting confirm  those already published, and a searching investigation in the affairs of the  Le Roi and allied mines will be made  by; Messrs. Frecheville and Bratnober  jn about a fortnight's time. The exhibition made by the manager of the Le  Roi on the streets of Rossland on Saturday continues to be the talk of the  town, with naturally very unfavorable  comment.  Colombia's Little War.  COLON, August 31.���(Delayed three  days by the censor.)���Bocas Del Torro,  140 miles west of Colon, is beseiged by  the Liberal insurgents. They number  at least. 200, and as already, cabled occupy Provision Island, which is opposite the town and commands the entrance to the harbor. They are fairly  well armed, possessing two small modern cannon, as well as plenty of ammunition, and are commanded by a Nicaraguan. Among them are many Nicaraguan and Costa Rican Liberals. The  opposing forces have occasionally exchanged shots, although with the exception of one wounded, there have been 1  no casualties. Martial law prevails In  Bocas Del Torro. The authorities have  stopped communication with other ports  except one. Tho Unitcu States, French,  British, and German consular agents in  Bocas Del Torro told the Colombian  commander that if the harbor restrictions interrupting commerce were not  abandoned they would call for gunboats.  These representations resulted in a limited improvement only in harbor conditions.   The local trade is virtually dead.  WILL MILL   NEXT MONTH  FAIRVIEW WILL THEN BE DROPPING 26 STAMPS.  A CITY UNDER SOCIALISM  An Interesting Topic.  The address of E. A. Crease on Sunday before the members of the Nelson  Socialistic Club was by far the most interesting of any that has ben presented  since the club began its series of set  subjects., The subject chosen by Mr.  .Cr,ease was "A Municipality Under Socialism," in the course of which he dealt  particularly with the proper treatment  of municipal monopolies, advocating in  all cases the possession by the municipality of such public utilities as waterworks, electric light and gas plants,  street railways and telephone systems.  Taking up first the matter of waterworks systems he directed attention to  the very recent rapid growth in public  ownership sentiment to the end that  public franchises should be conserved  for the benefit of the people. Waterworks systems were naturally the first  singled out for the operation of the new  condition for the reason-that they were  essentially services in which it was not  usual to expect competition, and in  every instance in which private corporations had been engaged in supplying  communities with water they had proven  to be money making concerns. In fact  it had long been the boast of dealers in  waterworks securities that no company  of any standing whatever had-ever defaulted its bonds. In this"connection it  was also pointed out that municipal corporations could always secure as favorable rates of interest for money borrowed as individuals, so that the objection to the inception of tlie system on  the score of funds for its proper carrying out rtidnot lie.  In illustration of the results following  the operation of the two systems Mr.  Crease cited a case wliich came under  his own observation in the town of Barrio. In this case a company of Water-  down, 'New York,' capitalists'constructed the. waterworks system for the  town."-There, was but oi)e._engineer..employed at the 'works to riin and fire_ the  engine, and .'.'another'.man to look "after  the pipes. A man whb was a telegraph  and express manager sent out the accounts monthly, which were made payable at one of the town banks, and the  money was remitted to the head office  of the company at Waterdown, New  York. Private ownership in that case  meant virtually that every dollar : received from the patrons of this system  went directly.out of the town to enrich  an alien company.  Taking up the question of lighting Mr.  Crease claimed that it was a distinct  advantage for a community to engage  in its own lighting, quoting extensively  from professor Commons in support of  his position. He held that a very good  illustration'- of this was to 'be had in  the financial results of municipal lighting in the City of Nelson,'the wisdom  of the council's action in deciding upon  the purchase of the private company's  ^charter beiiig_manifest in the light of  results attained. In furtherance of~tHl!r  move he advocated the securing by the  city of its own power from Bonnington  Falls, power nature had been so prodigal with. By'possessing its own power  from Bonnington it would be possible  for Nelson to foster industrial enterprises which, from its central position,  it was but natural for it to expect.  In touching upon the desirability of  municipal ownership of street railways  franchises Mr. Crease recalled the circumstance that when the Toronto street  railway was operated by sir Frank  Smith, it was the boast of the company  that by 10 o'clock in the morning the  working expenses of the road for the day  had been earned, and the rest of the  company's takings for the day were  profit. He then reviewed the interest-  pany by which this company was enabled to control 36 subsidiary companies in the United States and received  from each company the rental of ?6 for  each compound instrument. He held that  in the present day of rapid transaction  of business the telephone had become a  public necessity and he urged municipal  control for them the same as for other  public utilities. The address was well  received and provoked an interesting  discussion.  Have a Large Body of Gold Ore From  Whicli Re-organized Company  Expects Good Dividends.

Ven-'zuela Will Take a Hind.  CARACAS,- Venezuela, September 2.���  The official Gazette today published the  memorandum of the minister of foreign  affairs to all friendly nations, explaining the complaints made by Venezuela  against Colombia. The case is to be  a causus belli. There is much comment  and excitement.  Emperor William Sees a Fight  BERLIN, September 2.���Emperor William and the foreign military attaches  today witnessed a sham fight of garde  du corps regiments near here in lieu  of the customary autumn parade.  Holders of stock in the Fairview Corporation, Limited, which has. been operating a gold property at Eairview, B. C,  will do well to remember that the time  for the exchange of stock of the old company for that of the reconstructed company will expire on the c10th Instant,  after which all the stock not duly transferred will be cancelled. Holders of stock  in the old company may have the same  transferred by forwarding it to the head  office of the company at Fairview.  This is the company which E. Ram-  melmyer, formerly manager of the Emily  Edith mine, has been engaged to manage  and it looks very much as if he will be  required to repeat the performance with  the Fairview property that captain Gifford was called upon to do with the Silver King mine, that of galvanizing into  life what appeared to be a dead property. The Fairview company has good  assets, but up to date it appears to have  been unable ��� to turn them to account.  In addition to its gold property the corporation has extensive townsite interests, as well as coal lands, said to be of  considerable value, but the gold mine is  the main spring, the. successful operar  .tion of, which is in-a measure necessary  to give value to the other holdings.  This is the work which has been cut out  for" manager Rammelmeyer, and if it  can be done he may be'depended upon to  doit.  The Fairview company was originally stocked for $1,000,000 in shares of 25  cents each,.considerable quantities were  disposed of at this figure. An unsuccessful attempt was made to float the property on the London,: market, and failing this a loan of $40,000 was secured  for development': purposes from the  , Gooderham-Blackstock people in Toronto. A mortgage, was given to secure-  this loan, "and at-'thesame-time'the Toronto people took an option on a considerable block of the Fairview stock. It is  altogether likely that, this option would  have been taken up but for the slump  in War Eagles which occurred some  time later. The circumstance that the  option was allowed to lapse.was not  unwelcome to the principal holders of  Fairview, however, as in the development resulting from the proceeds of the  loan a much higher grade of ore was  struck than any previously encountered  in the property. Considerable shipments  of ore were made to mills in the vicinity,, and from the proceeds a substantial portion of the loan was paid back.  It was decided, however, if the company  was to work the property itself, it  would be necessary to proceed with reconstruction and the result -was that  the old stock was called in and new  stock issued on which 22 cents were  credited as having:been paid, with a  call of a cent and a half to be paid upon  ;the=cancellation=ofvthe=old-stock=andfthe=  issue of the new.  The company is now proceeding with  the installation of a stamp mill, and  by the first of October expect to be dropping 26 stamps, which it is estimated  will render possible the treatment of  75 tons of ore in the 24 hours. The property itself is opened up to a depth of  300 feet by means of a shaft, and the  showing consists of a large body of ore  varying in width from 20 to 30 feet,  which it is estimated will yield from  $5 to ?9 per ton. Success or failure therefore depends upon, the average. value  this ore will yield across the entire  body. Careful figuring has led the officers of the company to believe that  with a uniform return of ?6 per ton  in gold a good return can be secured.  Previous tests with the mill now being  erected has shown that 80 per cent of  the values of the ore can be retained in  the milling. There are at present considerable quantities of ore on the Fair-  view dumps which is said to run from  ?4 to ?5 per ton. This in itself would  ytelda good return on milling, now that  it is out, but the program of the company at present is to keep this in a  measure as a reserve and operate the  mill as largely as possible from the  output of the mine, using the dump  more for maintaining a uniform grade  of ore than for any other purpose.  Fairview is one of the best known  British Columbia stocks on the eastern  Canadian markets. It has gone from  par to almost nothing, so that success  in bringing [t again upon its feet would  be a great feather in the cap of any mining man. For this reason the progress  of Fairviews under the management of  E. Rammelmeyer will be followed with  interest not only by those who have invested in the stock but by mining men in  general.  The Change in the Cabinet.  The Victoria Times of Saturday says:  "It is not improbable that the present  week will practically see the completion of the labors of hon. J. H. Turner  as finance minister of this province. It  is understood that the premier's decision in regard to a successor to Mr.  Turner has been communicated to J. C.  Brown of New Westminster, and that  that gentlemtn will be sworn in as a  member of the cabinet early in the coming week���possibly on Monday.    Hon.

Dr. Fagan, secretary of the provincial board of health,  has purchased a largo amount of Mr.  Turner's furniture and) has taken a  lease of his house. His effects are now  beingcmoved into the finance minister's  residence. A private dispatch from  Vancouver this afternoon states that  it is believed there that the advent of  Mr;* Brown will mean the disruption of  the cabinet. Hon. Richard McBride,  who has completed a tour of the upper  country, one of the objects of which  was supposed to be for the purpose of  "booming"; Mr. Murphy for the portfolio,: is expected to return to Victoria  tomorrow." ���  HIGH TREASON IS CHARGED  THE CANADIANS WERE THIRD  COLUMBIA TEAM WINS THE HILTON TROPHY.

InstanUjL  NEW YORK,.September 2.���The team  of the District of Columbia, made up of  twelve men, won the Hilton -trophy  .at the Seagirt ranges today from eleven  teams .of twelve men each, who shot  for, this prize, and the contest, was so  keen that the result was in doubt .until  ' the last bullet flashed through the target. In winning, the District of Columbia team broke the record which it  established in 1895, making a score of  1098. The best individual shooting  done in this match was that, of sergeant  Corry- of the Twelfth regiment, New  York,' who made a possible at the 600-  lyard range, and was only. six points  from a. possible at all the. ranges, the  distances being 200, 500, and 600 yards.  The New York team had a lead.of 17  points when they left the first stage,  but the marksmen from the District-of  Columbia overcame this in the last two  distances.- A bull was made by Wells of  New York on the wrong target; and according to the rules'this was marked a  miss. If it had not been for this error  the New Yorkers would have< had the  same score as the winning team.  The Canadians who arrived yesterday  were in eighth place, .when- they left  the 200-yard range, but their shooting  at 500 yards and 600 yards placed them  in third place at the finish. The New  Yorkers' score was 1093, the Canadians  1077. ���       -  RATE WAR ON THE YUKON  "a~Boer discharged two mines, derailing  the train, while a body of Boers poured  in a heavy fire; Lieutenant colonel Vandeleur shouted to the women to lie  down under the seats/and ordered his  men to return the fire.

Dr. William S. Webb  of  the  New  York  Central  railway  is  NEWPORT,   September  2���The  second official race of the Columbia;and  Constitution  today had  practically  no  result.    The  yachts  for  lack  of  wind  were unable to finish within the time"  limit of five and a half, hours.7 At-6:30  this evening the Constitution came "to  that  inglorious   conclusion,   two- miles  to the eastward of Benton's Reef lightship.    At the time Columbia led by a'  quarter of a mile.*   The course was triangular,, ten  nautical  miles  to  a leg. -  the   first   being   a   beat, to   windward,  cast by southj the second X reach with  the wind about beam; and -the ithird a.  run before the wind, .which "hauled  to  make it another stretch witli the~wind  abeam/until the race'was declared off.  After crossing tho line at exactly the'  same moment with the Constitution - in  the windward, the Columbia worked out  and getting her wind free, forged ahead.  The: Constitution tacked off-shore and  shortly after the Columbia followed,  going up to windward.and passing her.  From then on the windward mark it  was nothing but a steady gain for the  old boat, and when both, had rounded  it was found that the Columbia' had' -  gained four minutes and 55 seconds,  the worst beating the Constitution has  yet received.  On the second leg the wind fell very,  light and the Constitution" bringing it  up with her gained slightly. After  rounding the second mark, four minutes and thirty seconds behind, they  started for home. The Constitution  carried up about all the wind and passed her rival.

TELEGRAMS IN BRIEF FORM  "pTesiclent _qt the company, and John  Jacob Astor.and other New York capitalists are on the board of directors.  As a preliminary step, the company  has secured- an assignment., of the subsidies, granted by the Dominion government and the province of Nova Scotia railway system.- These capitalists  have been in the.business of railroad  construction in the United States, but  in their country they receive no subsidies, they have to carry passengers  for two cents', per mile, their freight  rates are subject to public regulation,  and they have to pay state and municipal taxes on their property. In Canada  they get subsidies from the Dominion,  from the province in which their line  is located, and frequently from the municipalities through which it passes.  They get three cents a mile for carrying passengers, their freight i-ates arc  practically unregulated, and they pay  municipal taxes only, these being levied  not oii the value of their road and equipment, but on the value of the right of  way before the railroad was built. Is  it any wonder that American capitalists turn tlieir eyes northward, while  the people from whom their profits come  continue to move across the line?  Negro Escaped Lynching.  PITTSBURG, September 2.���William  Jones, colored, was mistaken for a nonunion workman by the Star tin plate  strikers late this afternoon and narrowly escaped serious injury. Police  lieutenant Crossan, who came to the  man's rescue, was badly used up. A  crowd of 2000 quickly gathered and cries  of "Lynch him!" were freely made, and  if it had not been for the prompt arrival  of a number of policemen the threat  would have been carried but. Jones was  with difficulty taken to the police station and the crowd then dispersed.  Ordered to Get Out.  PARIS, September 2.���The result of  Munir Bey, the Turkish ambassador to  France, coming to Paris, in spite of tho  rupture of France-Turkish relations,  and holding a fete in the Turkish embassy yesterday in honor of the anniversary of the sultan's accession to the  throne, was that the French government sent him a request to leave France  immediately. Munir Boy departed for  Switzerland in the evening.  From Various Sources.  BERLIN, September 2.���Count von  Buelow,' imperial chancellor," is formulating proposals which he will soon submit to the German states for the formation of a colonial army.  ���SYDNEY, Now South Wales, September 2.���A.masked cyclist last night held  up the White Cliffes mail coach, wounding a passenger, secured the mail, and  opals valued at $1400, and escaped.  NEW YORK, September 2.���John  Flanagan threw the 16-pound hammer  151 feet 9 inches7at" the. Irish Athletic  Association games at Celtic: Park today . This makes a new record.  LONDON, September 2.���Andrew Carnegie has given ��1.00 each to Sheddon,  Law, Jones, and Dick, tlie four miners  who displayed conspicuous bravery in_  "tlie rescue of-tlieir-"comrades af-the-  time of the recent Dolnibrislle (Perthshire)   colliery  disaster.  PIKETON, Ohio, September 2.���Israel  MeCollaster was stabbed to death last  night while endeavoring to fill the role  of peacemaker in a quarrel at a dance  held at Salt Creek. : wnen MeCollaster  fell, knives and revolvers were drawn  all over the hall, which was crowded  with dancers. In the excitement those  who had stabbed MeCollaster escaped.  Two suspects have been arrested.  BERLIN, September 2.���In spite of  efforts made to preserve the non-political aspect of the coining meeting between the emperor and the czar, the  Schlesischc 5-Ciliing's St. Petersburg correspondent declares that the czar has  been in autographic correspondence  with the emperor, special couriers posting between Berlin twice weekly, bearing letters which have not passed  through the hands of any officials.  BERLIN, September 2.���A private dispatch from Cologne says many laborers  are being discharged from the coal  mines and industrial establishments  owing to the declining business . The  men discharged are mostly Italians and  Poles, who are returning home in  troops. The weekly decrease in the  miners' wages amounts to 400,000  marks. The papers say that considerable quantities of old iron have been sold  to the United States and will be shipped  from Hamburg in a few days as ballast.  WASHINGTON, September 2.���Owing  to the fact that before the Boxer trouble developed in China, that the government appointed Kuei Chun, a member of Tsung Li Yamen, to the post of  Chinese minister to St. Petersburg, minister Wu is not inclined to credit the  press dispatch from London stating that  the Chinese minister at London is,to  be transferred to St. Petersburg and  that minister Wu will be transferred to  London. Mr. Wu said today that recently he had read in a Chinese newspaper that Kuei Chun was making preparations for his departure from Pekin  for the Russian capital. Mr. Wu arrived in Washington today from his  trip to Narragansett and other points  north. . Owing to the press of matters  demanding his attention, he will not be  able to be at Buffalo on president's day,  September Gth, but he will send one  .or two more members of his legation  staff lo represent him on that occasion.  m  _n TBE  NELSON  TRIBUNE,  TUESDAY MORNING,  SEPTEMBER  3,  1901  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  /fl  is.   ��__*  INCORPORATED 1C70.

McBride aspires to leadership in the Conservative  party,  and the majority of the party  have always  taken  kindly to men  of  action;  men always willing to do battle for the party as .-well, as to hold  the   offices    within   the   party's   gift.  Were Richard McBride to send in his  resignation as minister of mines, stating  as his reason for so doing that he could  not be a party to a deal with the enemy,  and that he considered Mr. Brown's appointment such a deal, and at the same  time  announcing  that   he  would  contest Mr. Brown's seat at the bye-election, he would show his party that he  has, at least,.one of the qualities that  no great leader is lacking, that is, courage.   If he won, it would be an intimation     to     premier     Dunsmuir     from  onq    constituency     that     he     cannot  be premier and at the same time dicker  and  trade  with  the  honorable Joseph  Martin, leader of the opposition.   If he  lost, he would at least have the respect  of his friends and his party, and a law  practice in a flourishing town like New  Westminster, .is surely as remunerative  as a portfolio. -Richard, it is up to you!  * NEW AUTUMN  to  fl\ Call and see our Fall Mantles and Ladies' Ready-to-wear Felt Hats.

A contract has  been  given a  man named Geiser of Baker City, Oregon, to take out 150 tons of ore a day,  ���or as much More as he can.'- Not being  able to secure men in Rossland to work  for him, he is sifting in men by twos  and "threes from the United States and  placing them at work.   These men undoubtedly have a right to accept em-:  ploynient under any conditions that suit  them; but the average man, whether he  be in' sympathy with the Le Roi management or with the Rossland Miners'  Union, will say that they are "scabs,"  which is a term of reproach and'not a  term   of  endearment.

If the census department, without the help of -Thomas Cote, was not  competent to count heads;in Quebec,  that same department was not competent to count heads in Ontario without  the help of the English equivalent to  Mr. Cote, v There is the double-distilled  essence of untruth in the Globe's pretence that identical, conditions governed  the count both in Ontario and Quebec.  ���'The' appointment of Mr. Cote proved  that the Dominion government did not  trust Mr..

Mr.  Thomas Cote represented the enthusiasm of the Laurier government for a  full and ample count in Quebec. There  was no Mr. Cote to represent a similar  enthusiasm for a. full and ample count  in Ontario, and .the inference is that  there was no such enthusiasm to be represented.���Toronto Telegram.

John Houston, Manager. Nelson, B. C.  Advices from Victoria are that the  honorable Richard McBride of New  Westminster, minister of mines in the  Dunsmuir government, is displeased because honorable John Cunningham  Brown of New Westminster is to be  taken into the same government as  finance minister. McBride is a Conservative and Brown is a Liberal. McBride is a native son and Brown is an  Irish Presbyterian. McBride is a young  man and Brown is well advanced in  years. Suppose when Brown goes  before his constituents for their approval of his acceptance of oflice that  McBride makes the race against him.  If he is a man of principle he cannot  well do anything else.   He cannot well .  only Liberal in the Dunsmuir government, and he lias made much of- it.  Now that John Cunningham Brown,  who is also a Liberal, is to become a  member of the same government, the  honor of representing the great Lib-  ral party in that government will be  much the same as a divided skirt. Will  the honorable chief commissioner try  to get both legs in the skirt, or will he  be satisfied to run a three-legged race  with John Cunningham as a running-  mate?  Labor Day is as generally observed  throughout the United States and Canada as any other public holiday, and  in much the same way. Labor men  should make every effort on that day  to show the relation that labor bears  to capital, and the best way to show  it is by object lessons. A few hundred  dollars expended in giving people an  opportunity to see a machine drill in  actual operation in a Labor Day parade will do more to educate people as  to what skilled labor really is than  twice as much expended for platform  oratory.*  ��� Several of the owners of land along  the north shore of the outlet are annoyed because people will trespass on  tlieir property. As none of the land is  under fence, those who trespass do so  unwittingly. Before owners of land in  this section of country take upon themselves the rights and privileges of the  landed aristocracy of the "old country"  they should do as the landed aristocracy of the "old country" do, fence in  their holdings. Once they begin fencing  in thoir holdings they will wish they  Were not landed aristocracy.

A Million Dollars.  The Chinese and Japanese send 'more,  than a million dollars a year out of the  province. This money goes to their  relatives in China and Japan. It is a  ') drain that impoverishes the province,  and the only way to stop it is to dis--  courage the employment of Chinese and  Japanese. The Victoria Outlook is.devoting much attention to the subject,  and in its last issue the following is published: - ��� x, ;...  Without waiting for full particulars of  the census enumeration in British Columbia, it may be figured, approximately, that after deducting Chinese and  Japanese, there are 35,000 able-bodied  men in the province.  Of the above 35,000 white men it is  safe to say that 3-1,900 would like to  see all further Mongolian immigration  stopped and those Mongolians now in  our midst sent easterly, westerly, northerly, southerly, perpedicularly, uply, or  .downly, to the boundless hence. Of tho  estimated 34,900 white men who would  like to see the exclusion and expulsion  qf the Mongolian, how many are making  any active effort to bring about such  exclusion and expulsion?  Five or six.  ,' Is-that all?  So far as we know, that is all.  Supposing that a Chinese and Japanese agent should make an annual round  and collect from each of the 35,000 able-  bodied   white    inhabitants  a  siim    of  ?171.45, would they go on paying it without protest?    Would   they  leave  it to  'five or six individuals to do all the agi-  .. tating?    --:'  yNoty likely.    They would all agitate,  individually and collectively. *  yvWhy don't they agitate now? "'''_���'    ���  It can only be supposed that they do  not agitate  now  because  they cannot  believe ythat the Chinese and Japanese  are taking the money out of them.  Can they be made to believe?  That is the question. '  :^Postmaster, Shakespeare stated before  the--Royal' Commission  that tlie Japanese had'piirchased money orders to the  amount of $133,913 during the year 1900  that the Chinese had  sent 5000 registered letters during the same year.   He  had ho means of knowing what su iris of  money these registered letters contained.  Th'e Chinese did not buy'money orders;  they used bank drafts. .,   ".''.  From a young man formerly employed as a clerk in one of our city banks  -(a bank doing much less business with  the Chinese than some of the others)  we obtained the information that the  drafts sold by that bank to the Chkiesc  ranged from twenty-five dollars to three  and four thousand; and that several  Chinamen doing business in Victoria  regularly crossed over to Vancouver anc!  purchased their drafts there, because,  in that city, there was no agreement  between -the banks, and rates of exchange,, were lower than in Victoria.  It is as easy- for the reader as for  anyone else to guess the ynqiint^of^cjish^  =sent^to'ehina=in=tlie=i5000TTegistered letters mentioned by Mr. Shakespeare. Bu  we have estimated, by other means, thai  the sum sent from this city, not iucluding remittances for goods imported by  Chinese merchants, is more than sir  hundred thousand dollars a year.  Leaving the province out of the calculation and estimating, by the usual computation, that the city contains 2 _0C  able-bodied men (other than Mongolians), it appears from actual fignref-  that the Japanese took last year $55.80  from each full-grown male inhabitant,  and the Chineso by a careful estimate  $250���$305.80 in all; or enough to enable every man in town, rich and poor,  to enjoy the luxury of two Mongolian  servants.  We have, as stated many times already, calculated the loss to Victoria  with the. assistance of several practical  men, well posted, regarding the Chinese, and believe that, if anything, the  totals arrived at are within the actual  figure; but private estimates, without  au official stamp, are not convincing;  and, to bring home to the people of  this city the fact that they are losing  three-quarters of a million dollars,  steadily, ��� every year, by reason of the  Chinese and Japanese, it will be necessary for the board ol trade, the city  council, or the provincial government  to appoint two, or more, officials for'the express purpose of going into this  matter and finding out, exactly, how  much the loss amounts to.  The evidence 'taken by the Royal  Commission was of a general nature.  ,Valuable though it may prove to bo  in educating the public men of ,]3astern  Canada (if they ever take the trouble  ito read it), it contains nothing which  he people of this province have not  .'known for years; but,, if the amount of  ���cash being annually sent to China and  [Japan could be definitely ascertained,  nd made public, it is certain that our  Ibusiness men would take counsel together and make an immediate and de-  ermined effort to have the leak stopped;  ut, until the amount is ascertained and  ^certified, in some authoritative way,  he people of Victoria will continue to  irift along and treat the matter with  arked indifference. It has been sar-  astically remarked that eels get used  o being skinned.

HOLT,  MmraKor Nolsou Hranch.  Mongolians? Would any ordinary business man, knowingly submit ot an annual heavy loss without taking trouble  to find out what.it amounted to, and  what means would be necessary to  avoid it?  Not likely.  Yet every member of the board of  trade, the council and the provincial  legislature knows, perfectly well, that  the hard coin is going across the Pa-  fic in a steady steram growing larger  every year.  For the mere satisfaction of checking  the figures of the Dominion census enumerators (not a two-bit piece to be  lost or gained whether they were right  or wrong) the city council freely undertook the expense of an independent enumeration.  > It is not weir worth while to appoint  say two reputable,men and have them  find out, exactly, what the city is losing by reason of the Mongolians.   '  The expense of such an enquiry should  not be more than five hundred dollars  per month for six months. Any capable  business man could get it done for half  the money or less.  Will   the   provincial   legislature,   the  city council or the board of trade take  the matter up?   '���'..'  Not for the present. '  If the expenditure of three thousand  dollars would save au annual loss to  the community of seven hundred and  fifty thousand, would .the expenditure  of that sum be��a good investment? .-..���  Individually the business men of Victoria would say "Yes," but collectively,  they do" not seem to know or care.  "Yet, regarded from any standpoint  under the sun���moral, religious, industrial, financial���as a question affecting  the public health, the reputation; of the  city in the opinion of outsiders, who  may think of coming here for pleasure,  for business or to become workers,  householders, taxpayers, and useful citizens, could any question be more worthy  of the most earnest consideration-  more vital to the present and future,  welfare of_the town?    .  ,', ���������.'.'  A specific complaint will be listened  to and acted upon when-a general complaint will get the go-by. If the exact  amount of the Mongolian drain were  ascertained and made public by. either  of the three business, municipal, or  legislative bodies before mentioned, it  could not fail to arouse prompt attention followed by prompt action.  It is l'or the citizens at large to say  whether three-quarters of a million of  dollars a year is a sufficiently large  sum to be worth looking after or not.

Henry Roy of the London Consolidated Company,- which is operating the  Silver Hill and Richelieu properties  at Crawford Bay, is in Nelson on business connected with his company.  S. A.

He will be married at the capital  on Saturday next to Miss Constance  Fletcher, daughter of Dr. James Fletcher,  Dominion  entomologist.  Dr. James Christie of ��t, John, New  Brunswick, arrived in Nelson yesterday  on his way to Kaslo, where he will "visit  his daughter, Mrs. Gerrard, wife of the  manager of the Kaslo branch of the  Bank of British North America. .  Frank Clarke and Coote Holmes spent  Labor Day fishing at - Kokanee creek.  Clarke returned with the fish story and  Holmes is expected home today with  the fish. Clarke says they caught a  fish as large as that taken by Ernest  Mansfield, but the fish has not yet'been  produced. ���   ' CITY AND DISTEIOT.  F. G." Fauquier, the defaulting government agent at Revelstoke, will receive his preliminary hearing before police magistrate Sibbald-'on Thursday,  provided the prosecution is ready to  proceed.  F. J. Painton, formerly of this city,  who is at present building a residence  for himself near Grand Forks, recently  met with a painful accident through the  falling of some joists which he was  erecting. He received injuries to ��� his  spine.  L. Ernst of this city is applying for  100 miners' inches of water from Baty  creek, about half a mile from Trout  lake, It is understood that Mr. Ernst  contemplates putting in a water-works  system to meet the requirements of  Trout lake. There are a numbr of  others after water' for the same purpose.  Provincial constable Alan Forrester  =arrived=in-=Nelson=last=:evening-in=ehargei  of John Burgman of Deer Park, who  has been sentenced to thirty days' imprisonment upon a charge of assaulting Harry Oakes. burgman's offense  consisted in pointing a shotgun at Oakes  and threatening to shoot him. The gun  was taken away from him and then  Burgman got an axe and threatened  to dispatch Oakes by that means. In  view of the offense Burgman can congratulate himself that he got off light.  Passengers arriving on the Spokane  train last evening report that the management of the' Northport smelter  brought in a crew of (il men yesterday  to. work in the smelter. Tlio men wore  brought from.'one of the middle states  and were given the assurance that there  was no labor trouble on at the smelter  whore they .were to work. As they approached Spokane thoy were made acquainted with the situation by members  of-the Smeltermen's Union and forthwith appointed a committee to meet  the union men at Northport. The imported men made no secret of it that  if they found things as represented to  them by the union men they would refuse to1 go to work.  Developing Erie Claims.  William Davis of Erie, manager of the  Transvjaal-Zambesi Mining Company, is  in Nelson on business in connection  with his company. This company, as its  name would imply, was organized for  the purpose of engaging in.mining in  South .Africa, but by reason of the disturbances created by the South African  campaign, its shareholders were induced  to invest in mining properties in this  province. As a result the company became interested in a number of claims  on Erie mountain, a short distance from  the town of Erie. These properties Mr.  Davis is developing by means of a crosscut tunnel, which has been run in a  distance of 120 feet to tap the lead.  Where the ledge lias been tapped by the  tunnel it is very wide, the crosscut being in a distance of 42 feet, and the second wall not having been met with'. The  crosscut has disclosed two stringers of  ore which yield good values in gold and  silver, each of which, from the little  work that lias been done on the prop  erty, having tin indicated width of two  feet. These stringers for the' most part  are of quartz, in which occurs considerable galena and iron, the latter appearing to carry the values. Mr. Davis  considers that the ore will require smelter treatment, and he will make arrang-  nients for a sample shipment. Speaking  in a general way Mr. Davis said that  the development of the Erie mountain  properties had been highly encouraging  so far, but sufficient work had not been  done to speak-with any degree of certainty with respect to the property.  Mr. Davis has spent several years in  mining in South Africa and in his opinion the labor conditions which obtain  there very largely acount for the preference shown by the English investors  for South African properties. In South  Africa the bulk of the mine labor was  performed by Kaffirs, who received but  (JO cents for a day of ten hours. White  labor was almost wholly restricted to  overseeing, Mr. Davis' experience was  that the Kaffirs made good miners  when their energies were properly directed. They were as a rule able bodied.and  not afraid of work. It was customary in  starting holes for the overseer to show  the Kaffirs just .how .ho desired them to  be driven, but: once they were started  they could be depended upon to do just  as;good work and as much work as the  ordinary white miner.  Henry Asquith.  The name of Henry '__. Asquith has  been frequently mentioned in dispatches  referring to the split in the ranks of  British Liberals and tbe following article by Charles Benham from the London Daily Mail will be of interest, . Mr.  Bonham  says:  Between 1874 and 1876, when he got  himself called to the bar, Henry Asquith actually earned his livelihood as  an assistant master at his old school!  Let him obtain the premiership, as he  may do after his great speech to the  South Essex Liberals, he will be almost  the first premier who at the age of  twenty-four was not either still at the  university or doing the grand tour.  Fortunately humble beginnings have  no power to keep a man back in law.  Blue chins are more plentiful in the  temple than blue blood. Moreover, As-  quiths do not pay bar entrance fees  merely to adorn briefless chambers and  back benches. In this particular instance it needed only fourteen years to  gather a practice both in town and on  the northeastern, circuit sufficient to  justify silk.. But though Mr..Asquith  made his living at- the law,' still he  looks like a lawyer, nnd, contrary to  all precedent, Is back at the law after  his interval as home secretary, he has  always been a politician before anything  olse.      ~  In August, 1892, when the Salisbury  cabinet^came back from the country with  j a minority, Mr. Asquith was deputed by  his leader to move the "no confidence"  amendment to the address to the throne.  His reward was the post of home secretary in the new Liberal administration, Several of his party considered ho  hod received more than he deserved.  He succeeded as an administrator, but  showed himself ��� hard and unbending,  gaining many enemies who may have  to be reckoned with. The fatal coal  strike riot at Featherstone in August,  1893, when the mob was fired on by the  military and two men killed, is perhaps  forgotten by laboring men. Is it forgotten by their leaders? Ghosts of  executed murderers may not rise to  stand between an ex-home secertary and  his legitimate ambitions, yet very few  respites came from Mr. Asquith, a fact  which indicates the uncompromising  temper of his mind in little things.  This modest estimate of his prospects  would not be impartial were it to ignore  unpalatable truths. Mr. Asquith is generally esteemed for his brains and decisive character. But he is not a popular  personality in the house of commons, or  he used not to be, to within a very recent date. His eloquence is of the mind,  _not_of_the3eart. He_is_called_cynical  He lacks genial ways. "What can you  expect from a cabinet," Dizzy asked  once, "that is not even in society?" Mr.  Asquith at he start was not even in society. Society has taken him up since;  a little too much, someof his friends  may think, who recall that almost royal  wedding at St.-George's.
