SPOKANE,    September   25.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Before' a   crowd   of  2000 people in tho big-tent used by the  Elks' carnival shows, the Butte drilling  team, Bradshaw and   Freethy,   tonight  defeated Ross and MeLeod, representing  Sandon.   It was only by a close margin  that Butte carried  off the  money,  for  an inch' or more by the Sandon team  would  have   turned   the   tables.'    Tho  .Butte team "drove the   drills   down 52  inches, while the Sandon team had 51  1-4 inches to its credit when time was  called.    Both   teams  wero  unfortunate  in'selecting the spot to start the drills  The granite must have  been  obstinate  when tho drills began to penetrate to  a depth, for drills stuck for both teams  and there was considerable time and distance lost 'because of that fact.    Ross  swung the hammer  like a demon  and  MeLeod came down on the steel with  tremendous   force,   but-  the   luck   was  against the1 men from _>ritish Columbia  It seemed to be an even thing to  the  /betting   fraternity,   and.-Butte   monev  iound ready takers at evens. '.Ross and  MeLeod  were  Lhe last  to  drill.of  four  ���teams in last night's .tournament^ and  the excitement was at l'evei* height'du-  - _*ing /��� the   last   moments.' *   "When,  the  judges announced that 'Butte 'ha'd. car-  Tied off the $1000   purse   there 'was a  groan of disappointment from a large  .-contingent who fanciedHhe Scctchmen  from' the Slocan.

These  teams had better luck with their rock  than the other two.  Tuesday's Contest.  .Yesterday The Tribune 'gave   a fu.i  report of how W. M. Ross and Georiie  ,   S. MeLeod put a hole.51 vinches deep in  -- ^aJrtockJp^graniteUn X-drilling contest  ^ at Spokane''on' Monday^ and 'today], is  - printed an account of. how their work  was surpassed, by a team from Butte,"  Montana. _ The   following   is   from the  .Spokesman-Review of Wednesday:* ,  The;prizes given for the rock drilling  ���   -contest have been won as follows:  First prize, $500���Walter Bradshaw  and Joseph Freethy of Butte, Montana,  ���distance drilled 55 inches.

Walter Bradshaw and Joseph Freethy,  the Butte team, yesterday smashed all  known records and distanced state records by many inches in the second day  ������0f-theTccl--drilling-meet7-,_A_-52 inches  they broke through, the bottom cf the  block, and taking a dulled starter they  run a new hole down three inches be-  lore the fifteen minutes elapsed. Their  record of 55 inches raised the record  made the night bofore by Ross and MeLeod of British Columbia four inches.  The exhibition, yesterday is without  doubt one of the most remarkable ever  made in the whole world. It is hqrd to  compare it with records made in other  parts of the world, as granite varies in  hardness, and the Spokane is rather soft  on account of its low percentage of  quartz.  The commonly accepted drilling record for the world was made'by Huppi  nnd Lindquist at   Leadville   on Labor  Day, when they drilled 41 1-2 inches in  Gunnison granite in 15 minutes.   On the  other hand, Bradshaw and Freethy, who  won here yesterday, drilled 42 1-2 inches  in Montana granite at Helena on Labor  3. ay.    Stewart and   Make  at Colorado  ,  Springs in August drilled over 51 inches  in soft granite, and went clear through.'  tbe rock.    No   record   that   is known,  however,   comes ; near   the'remarkable;  ���performance made . here   yesterday by  Bradshaw andYFreethy.'.in' drilling 55:  inches, and the title of champion drillers  of the whole world may be safely be-,  .stowed Aiponrthein. .

Butte, team. An  ���ihour'after the end of the match yester-:  <_a.v articles were drawn up, for a match  '��� between* the twoteamsr with a;side i-e-  of ?1000, to take place tonight at the  Elks' carnival, tent. Considering the  truly remarkable drilling of these two  ���teams'- and their confidence in their  ���ability-to drill over '55 inches, the contest   promises   to prove   ay-battle   of  -giants. ��� ��� *.'  ,"' In addition to their'match another of  ���scarcely less importance was ma.de to  -take place tonight. Davey and Stevens,  the team'that had trouble with the bad  hole on the fn*3t night's drilling, believe  they can raise the record of Ross and  MeLeod. Patterson cf the Osburn team  ������and Stevens of the Murray team, think  that together they can make Davey and  Stephens work to  their* limit, and  a  match between them has been drawn up  with a side bet of ?500. The last match  has aroused almost the interest of the.  battle between the champions, and the  greatest rock drilling ever held in the  northwest is expected, to result from  these matches. The first team will come  on at 8 30 tonight. The judges are  David O'Neil, Thomas Ryan and Peter  Joyce.  At the carnival tent the flrst team to  'contest in the drilling match yesterday  was C. M. Patterson and M. M. Cum-"  mings of Osburn, Idaho, who came on at  2:30. They worked steadily with Hardly,  the expert drill changing of some of the  other teams, but they made a driving  finish. Patterson in paiticular struck  hard and fast in the last two ~rainutes.  Their hole measured 47 3-4 inches.  The lasttteam to contest in the meet,  Walter Bradshaw and Joseph Freethy"of  Butte,     Montana,     followed    "closely.  Throughout their drilling, the crowd realizing that the men were out for the'  record, kept up encouraging comments  and applause, and during the-last two'  minutes, when thev broke through the  block, the entire crowd stood- upj and  yelled.   The team started in hard from  the   beginning.     They   hammered   the  starter like it was a long drill, and they-  changedsin pretty fashion. They showed,  a perfection in team work that delighted  the   critical   audience.     Bradshaw   and  Freethy each represented a distinct style  in hammter   work,   Bradshaw  hit -very  rapidly and used a short handled hammer, while Freethy swung longer and  harder.   Freethy is pei haps the smallest  of the men drilling, and as he was the  drill changer of his team he introduced  a trick in the changing of long drills  that was new to most of the contestants.  When'"change" was called he rose to  his' feet,   and 'drawing   the dull'-steel  with him   he dropped   the   sharp drill  into the hole and allowed his partner ���  to  duve it down on the next stroke.  Both men were fine ptiysical, specimens  and were in no way ^exhausted after the  killing   work.     Bradshaw   struck   588-  times in the 15 minutes and Freethy 440  ���a  total  of   1028   blows-, to   drive 55  inches.  Freethy, in speaking,'of the contest,  said "Bradshaw's. style_ of rapid striking is perhaps better than mine in this  soft granite, as he cleans his hole better by not cutting so much rock to a  stioke. If it were hard rock the hard,  blow is almost necessary to do-anything, but speed is the thing in this  match.  Look    at    Bradshaw's - record.      He  struck-148 times moie than I did, and  that means  inches  in that rock.    We,  used Crescent special hand drill steel;  the starters were 1 1-2 inches at the bit*  PRINCETON GOAL MEASURES  A NELSON COMPANY TO DO DEV-  '     BLOPMENT WORE.  *'Jud_;e" Murphy, of Granite Creek, an  Aspirant for '<_ flice���New Poli-  - ���   > > *j .,   .__ i i  tical Party Formed.  with 7-8 inch shank.-,,rhe last drill we,  used was the same size at the bit as at.  the shank, and was 59 inches long.

CLAIMS BONDED FOR $35,000  Wagon Road Nearing Completion.  KASLO,   September   25.���[Special   to  The Tribune ]���The Fletcher, group on  .Lyle creek at Whitewater' was bonded  on Monday to George Alexander of  Kaslo for $35,000, and 10 per cent of the  purchase pi ice was paid m cash to the  owners, Messrs. Fletcher Brothers and  Moulse. Mr. Alexander intends to commence work on the property immediately. A surveying paity left this morning for the proporty and will bo followed  in a few days by a force of miners. The  Fletcher group is a gold proposition,  fiom whicli some very high-grade ore  has been taken. It was under bond a  year ago to Charles Plowman, who  dropped the bond without doing any  work.  Foi eman Thomas Melrose and, his  gang of thi'-ly-five men who have been  at work on the South Fork of Kaslo  liver wagon road, returned today.

He had made his first  success in,the fame ot his cooking, for  he was an unrivalled chef then, but as  he got in with the boys the kitchen was  not stylish enough;   he was always in  the dining-room and the cooking being  left to hired men became like all other  woik in the city.

When the'sailors of the cup" yachts and  their attendant 'vessels Lturned out for  the last week of preparation .today, a  30-mile wind'was kicking up the white'  caps m Sandy Hook Bay, and outside a  heavy sea was running and vessels were  pounding along, under close ree_ed sails.  While the wind died with the sunset  th,e weather wise say it'will come again  with the morning. Neither sir Thomas  nor Mr. Duncan cared to-" risk a trial  under the' conditions ~of the wind and,  water,that prevailed in" the flrst half of  ,the,day, but at 2 o'clccn: ywhen'the wind  had fallen, the Columbia's mainsail was  hoisted and a few* minutes she1 sailed  away under mainsail, club'topsail, stay-'  sail and jib. She (returned-in less than  .two hours and made fast to her buoy  for the night. _ y[ t  _  'After  a  consultation ' 'with'' manager  Jamieson   and   designer" Watson", * * sir  .Thomas decided that it was-not necessary to take the Shamrock out for a trial  spin, so she lay moored" at-her buoy all  day. When sir, Thomas was-told today,  that'as'a result of the'.officiarmeasurement of yachts Shamrock would have"  to allow the Columbia '43v seconds in a  30-mile course,  he'was-much-pleased)  /'Don't you think we ^ have, a splendid  chance to wm the cup?'; he remarked.  "We fully expected to have allowed time  but of course we are .very well satisfied  with the result. And again 'I say may  the ".best  boat,win.   If  the-,Shamrock  should lose/1 can certainly say that I  have "done eveiything'that'a' man can  do to put the yacht m perfect-condition  tor; the race, and I think everyone ad-"  mits that she is as. nearly perfect as  can be.i; ,     !  " Theitwoiyachts lie within hailing-dis-  tance of each-'bther. None of the principals will make' a prophecy as to' the  outcome.. Only the  betting shows  the  trend of .opinion, and the prevailing odds  are 10 to 8 on, the American boat. In  some   instances   these   have   been   increased to 10 to 7, but so far as can be  learned no no large wagers have been  laid.   The   final   arrangements   for   the  races are, complete and the regatta having the matter in chaige feel assured  that everything possible has been done  to give each yacht a i.ur show. As was  the case two yeais ago, the course "will  be patrolled by a "fleet of revenue cutters in command of captain Walker of  the revenue service, and the yachts will  have an obstructed course 'of at least a  mile wide. As is usual in-all Amencan  cup contests, clubs will be represented  on the opposing yachts. Butler Duncan,  -who-dunng-the-past-year-managed-the"  Constitution,   will   represent   the   New  York Yacht Club on board the Shamrock II. On the Columbia will be H. M.

HALIFAX, September .25.���The jury  in the case, of Sydney Sargent, for having , murdered   his   three   children   at  In tbe Islander Inquiry.  VICTORIA, September 25.���Evidence  of rather sensational character was  -broughrout=at_the~enquiry"in--"tl--"loss'  of the steamer Islander, which was continued this afternoon. Dr. A. W.  Phillips, who lost his wife and daughter  in the disaster, said he could find no  life preserveis in his stateroom, and  wheu he did find them in the cabin  there was nobody to assist or instruct  them how to put them on. He was not  aroused and only went out because his  wife heai d a noise and was uneasy.  When they reached the deck all the  boats and rafts had left, and thoy were  drawn down with tho steamer. He  came to the sui face again but his wife  and daughter did not.  W. G. Preston of Seattle, testified that  the boat In wliich he left the ship only  contained fourteen people, one of whom  was a fireman.  They did not pick up  otheis  as  theit   boat was  leaking aud  they were not oarsmen. No one seemed  to have charge of the boats, but when  he left the steamer there seemed to be  no more passengers to take off.   It took  the men about two minutes to lower a  boat. They did not seem to.understand  it. In one boat there were only seven  men, and they all looked like members  of, the crew, one of them having a uniform on. He judged they were members  of the crew   because   they   had   rough  clothes on. They may have been laborers or miners. No one aroused the passengers, and no one ordered the boats  to.stand by. He heard a man at the inquest, at Juneau give evidence to the effect that the pilot was drunk, and his  wife remarked as he came aboard the  ship at Skagway that he looked as if  he had been drinking.  Mate Greon of Tacoma, swore positively that the captain and pilot were  drunk. The captain was at the bar for  two hours,, and he had seen him take  two drinks. If all the boats had not left  tne ship many more lives- would haye  been saved. Two of the life preservers  picked up after the wreck had been  weighed at Juneau, and weighed 45 and  46 pounds respectively. The inquiry goes  on tomorrow.  -'*__!_  '��� 'Bm  ^_|  z.Wl  ' *"'--.-.._  i,"S-/__  I  *-i  VKl  .-vfl  '..J  Greenwood Local News.

U. __^__a__n, eeo-  If the next provincial election -is  fought on party lines, which is not at all  unlikely, who will lead the different  pai ties, for there will be three parties  in the fleld, namely, Liberal, Conservative, and Labor? The Liberals have but  one logical leader, that Is, Joseph Martin  of Vancouver. He is head and shoulders  above any of the other aspirants, not  only in knowledge of the game of politics, but in knowledge of parliamentary  procedure. Mr. Martin, however, is not  in favor at Ottawa, and the powers  there will do everything that is possible  to thwart any effort he may make to  obtain the leadership. George M. Maxwell, M. P. cf Vancouver, is aspiring for  the position, and he will undoubtedly  have the support of sir Wilfrid Laurier.  Maxwell has been long enough in ofllce  to learn some of the rules of the game,  and the rules he has committed to  memory are those that mean: If you  want the spoils, you must he in a posi  is a good stumper, a Scotchman, and a  Presbyterian, all of which are factors  in politics.    E. V. Bod-weH'of Victoria  may have had aspirations at one time,  but he stands to win too much in the  game that he js playing J;o( leave it for  a game in which the cards are^ not always dealt fairly.   There are no prominent Liberals   in the   interior, .except  "Big BiU"  Galliher.   M., P.. of Nelson,  and he has his hands full in attending^  theSvants of'60,001. people in liis constituency. ' The 'Conservatives   have.'any  numtjer of leaders, but'the people have  ho "confidence" in   them."-YThose -that  have been8 tried   are   discredited,   and  'those that are not" discredited, afe^ untried. " Taking' everyth'ing (i'nto * consideration, sir Hibbert' Tupper of Vancouver is ,th'e best ofthe lot'that'have been  tried.

It is to be  presumed the unions are willing to accept this as a just interpretation of the  law, provided always that the same interpretation is given when employers  assume the responsibility of smashing  unions. A labor union that has acquired  property in itself, and whose members  aro taxpayers in the community in which  thoy work is as fairly entitled to have its  propo;ty rights protected as is the min-  bers to sacrifice their property Interests  in order to .obtain work elsewhere. The  Le Roi Mining Company, through its  manager Bernard McDonald, has-threatened to smash the Rossland Miners'  Union, an organization' that has large  property interests in Rossland, and  many of whose members are taxpayers  in that city. The Rossland Miners'  Union, in self-defence, Is protecting its  own vested interests and that of its  members, and for. doing ��� so, suit has  been entered by the I_=. Roi Mining Company against it and its members, claiming thousands ,of .dollars in damages,  The mining company'relies on a decision of the British house" of lords; the  miners" union relies simply on' British  fair play. "Which will, win?.  ered by doing so.. Mr. Brown's defeat  was looked on in two ways. Conservatives generally were "tickled." Liberals  looked upon it as a party defeat, though  many of them do not* like Joseph Martin. The political shuffles at the Coast  have not produced any excitement in  Kootenay, and the,only intense feelings  raised were probably raised In the  breasts of .Kootenay .M.P.P.s, who are  either in premier Dunsmuir's cabinet br  who want to get into it.'  *************Hi*************7  *     - -   tfi  Hi  tii  H,  tir  tii  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  *  9  9  9  9  9  9  9-  9  9  9.  4, 2***********9************<���? *  APIARY AND GREENHOUSES  A.

Tho Buffalo correspondent of the New  York Herald reports that Czolgosz carried with him the creed of the Anarchist  society to which he belongs, and a  pamphlet detailing adyice for successful assassination-issued by an organization whose avowed purpose is murder.  Those have been found by the police*  and are m full below. They comprise  two- of the most cruel documents ever  issued by human beings. In full detail  and with marvelous cunning such recruits as Czolgosz were initiated into the  mystcues of the order. A manual purports to gne instruction for assassins.  It is constiucted in so cunning a manner that a man like Czolgosz must have  surely been impelled with, a desire to  follow out its directions. This manual  13 the work of the Free Society, of which  .the Anarchists now under arrest in Cln-  <cago, are said to comprise many of the  members of the executive committee. It  is the most sensational proof of an existence ot"a plot yet-discovered. A copy  of it is as follows:  ANARCHISTS' MANUAL.  -."We hereby bind oursol.es together  to advocate and work for the destruction of the existing social jpidev, with  Ats laws and institutions,! and the com-'  'mon division of property. xWe hold it to  be self-evident that the government, the  law, tho schools, the churches and the  press are in the pay and under the control of the capitalists, and will; never  consent to.the laborers' demands unless  -.compelled'by foice. We maintain that  all property owned by coiporations and  individuals should be destroyed, and all  capital which' has been produced^ by  labor should bo transferred into common property, for it is only when capital is made common ~aud indivisible  that all can be made to partake fully  and freely of the fiuits of, common, activity. Only byvthe impossibility of ac-4  qumng-v capital can everyone be"~ compelled1-to work who* claims a right to  live As in-former times' no privileged  class ever relinquished its tyranny. No  moro can we take it for granted that the  capitalists of the present day will forego their privileges and their authority  without compulsion.' -*���  "It is, thereto e, self-evident that the  light of the prolotariat against the upper  and middle classes must'he of a violent  c_.ai_.cter, and that mere wage conflicts  can never lead to the goal We show by  numerous illustrations that all attempts  that have been made in 'the past to do  .i'.av with existing monstrous social  systems through peaceful means���for  c> ample, the ballot box���have been utterly useless, and will be so m the* future We know, therefore, that the ruling  olass will not voluntarily relinquish  their prerogatives, and" will make no  cone, ssions to us. *  "Under-all these circumstances theie  is cnlj-_pne_remedy_left__force,  "Our platform is simple, and divided  as follows*  "(1) ' Destruction of cxistms diss  domination through inexorable revolution and international aetivitv.  "(2) The building of a fi ec society on  communistic organizations or productions.  "(3) Free exchange of equivalent pro  ducts through the productive organisation, without jobbing and profit-niakln*.  "(4)  Organization of the education .1  system upon non-religious lines and on  an ooual basis for both sexe*\  ,   "(5) equal rights for all without distinction of race or sex.  "((j) The regulation of public aff.irr.  through agreements between the independent commune and confederacies."  THB CENTRAL SOCIETY.  Leon Czolgosz. asserts that he belong-  to the   International   Arbeiter Ze.t_nr,.*|_iea��� to detection of'any'kmd" This rule  which is divided into eighty .groups of  Anaichists. It _. rule, by a central  committee, located in Chicago, of which  the members are said to be ,Abra . __..  Isaak, Michael Ro.o, Alfred Schnider,  Henry Trevagilo, and Morris Pox.  Indirectly the Free Society is connected with the Arbeiter Zeitung. The Fiee  Society has issued large quantities of  printed material, 'a key to which is now  in the possession of the police of Buffalo  and Chicago. Physical force is the doctrine that is"taught at all times Opposition to society as it now exists is  the watchword. Special stress is laid  .ipon success.  Among the belongings of Czolgo.z was  found a manual of instructions for the  successful execution of An irchical assassinations by knife or buHet, together  with complete details or plans and a  method of supplying the assassin with  funds Rules for his conduct under all  circumstances are supplied The word**  "murder" and "assassination" are not  used, but for them is substituted "cv.nt"  and "action."  HOW TO BE AN ASSASSIN  Tho manual contains the following  "There will be three periods in a**y  event:   (1)   The period  of preparation  for the action;  (2) The moment of the  action Itself; .-(3)  The .portion of time  ������which'- follows the deed.  .   "It is easily comprehennible to every.  body that the danger of,discovery is the  Y-atcater' the more* numerous .the number  '���of'''people or the group which contcni-  usual way, who does not live at the placo  of 'actiori.'  "Whoever is'selecteu and willing to  execute the'deed must put the question  to himself and answer it to the satisfaction of his comrades, as well as his  own, whether he is able or not to carry  out the action himself. If he gives perfect assurance of sufficient mental control and resolution to perform the deed  singly, let him absolutely initiate no  one in the matter, and let him act alone.  But if that is not the case, let him look  with greatest care' for just as many fel-'  lows as he must absolutely have���nai  more, no less' Let there be no discussio/  of the deed in groups, for uselesss debates develop and the danger of discovery is .enhanced. Let the. con_rad6 or  comrades observe pei feet silence. If  there is any talk then the thing is at  once hung upon a. great bell, and it  would soon reach the ears of the 'men  who hear the grass grow and the fleas'  cough.' 'Does the selected man1 possess,  head as well as hea-;?'*'Ha_ the formation of the plan been perfected?' 'Is  the manner of execution clearly understood? These answered in the aftTrmative  then let 'action' follow with the'greatest  possible, swiftness! Let there be no delay, tor now you move within the scope  of tho greatest danger, for you may be  detected; you may have committed treason or conspiracy, and may, be apprehended before you have an opportunity  of leaping the* piecious'. fruit of your  design. So, let us repeat, when these  points are settled,,strike without delay.  POISON AND SUCCESS. j  "As to 'action' and me scene.of 'action,' select personally that point' of  vantage which seems to absolutely insure success, even, though some.com-'  lade must absolutely sacrifice himself.  ".Success' Success! Success!, must be  the watchword, for there is nothing .like  the success of an action to "inspire an  impulse for a new deed. Too great care,  therefoie, cannot be exercised in select-'  ing the scene 'of action. If a sacrifice is  necessary; let the comrade leinember  that his death is a martyrdom to.the  cause, and his memory will be cherished  as a patriot Life at its -best is fleeting  and. full'of mystery. What comrade  would hesitate to'give away his breath  tor 'such-a-glorious moment' But'valiant comrades must not _acnfi.ee themselves needlessly, lecklessly, or foolishly, "so it. is imperative that all deeds  should be done singly when practicable,  or, if not, by as few a number as possible.  "Owing" to a failure of a number of J  'actions' the idea is hereby suggested of  poisoned weapons intended to be used  ior assault; the best suggested is cur-  ari, for it is absolutely fatal, whether  admmistcied through the*agency of a  knife ,01*^ a bullet It is, however, very  high-priced.

Readers of this morning's Tribune  should note the changes in three advertisements, namely, W. F. Teetzel & Co.,  Fred Irvine & C, and the Canada Drug  & Book Company.  The two-year old son of J. Donaldson was brought to the Kootenay lake  hospital yesterday with a broken arm.  The little fellow received his injury  while playing with some other children  on the street.  There is not a vacant bed in the  Kootenay lake hospital. Most of the  patients come from outside points,  which may be taken to mean that the  excellent reputation of' Nelson's hospital is more than local.  Both the Madden and Silver King  hotels are undergoing interior alterations, which, when completed, will be  decided impi ovements. In both, comfortable offices and reading-rooms are  being fitted up separate and apart from  the bar-rooms.  James Adams, an employee of the  steamer Rossland, was brought to the'  Nelson hospital last evening with a  number of knife wounds in > his back.  It is said that Adam got into a row near  Arrowhead, in which he was rather*  badly used up. It required several  stitches to close his wounds, but they  are not regarded as serious!  J. A. Macdonald, the architect in  charge of the federal building, will take  a trip to Robson within.the next few  Relays to inspect the pressed,brick.which  are being made at the Robson yard. If  the product of the Robson .yard is up  to the sample the brick 'will be' used,  but otherwise pressed granite brick will  be imported from Spokane.  The broken weather, is having its effect upon the completion of tbe road  to* connect Nelson with .the properties  to the south of the city. W. A. McLean,  road superintendent in' charge $>f the  work, says that with two weeks more  of good weather he'will, have connections made with the roads to the mines  so that the, road can be used for moving supplies. It has not ye. been decided  whether the road will be continued any  further than the necessary* connections  this season.' ���   o  WE ARE SHOWING THE FINEST STOCK OF RATTAN  GOODS EVER SHOWN IN.THE CITY  " -,. ���....>  HAiiOOK  ���/_'..'Now "is your ��� time''to get "a-bargain in ��� these .lines , as, Ave  ".must dispose of them all this month.

The case will come hefore  judge Forin at the approaching session  of the county court, which opens here  bn the 30th instant, and will be followed  with interest, as it is said that there are  a number of other persons who have  claims for alleged damages resulting  from the fumigation of their premises.  Captain Hayward-, who for several  years was connected with the steamboat  services on Kootenay lake, is spending'  a few days in Nelson. The captain is  now giving his attention to mining and  has just returned from a trip through  the Windermere district, in which his  people, a. New York syndicate, have  several claims. Captain Hayward says  there are a number of fine showings in  the district, but it is very backward in  respect to work done when the age of  the district is considered. From the small  amount of work performed he says It is  evident that the system of restaking property must have been followed to a very  considerable extent. The captain says  there are one or two outfits in the district that are making their work count,  but in the greater number of cases the  work has been misdirected.  Nothing new has transpired with respect to the London & British Columbia  Goldfields bond upon the Imperial and,  Eva groups on Lexington mountain in  the Lardo. The second and third pay-  ments-on the bond are now said to have  been passed, but matters have not been  brought to'a head between the holders  of the bond and the Imperial .Development Syndicate.' While the failure of the  London ���& British Columbia Goldfields  to take; up..their bond would be a great  disappointment to! the directors of the  development syndicate it will not deter  them from proceeding with the devel-  opmnt of the property themselves should  such a course be found necessary. The  syndicate has.a heavy payment to meet  upon its'bond upon the property next  month, and while it was expected that  this paymentt would be met. out of the  proceeds from the London & British Columbia  Goldfields   bond,  the -syndicate  have the funds necessary and will meet  the payment. This payment is said to  be in the neighborhood of $27,000.'  -   ��� Ml. l  IMPROVED AIR-COMPRESSOR  NELSON, B.C.  KASLO, B.C.  ESTABLISHED 1892  SANDON, B.C.

It was generally understood that  this sewer was down to a sufficient depth  to permit of the draining of ordinary  basements fronting on m. street, but the  architect~'in"charg. ofthe work on the  Salvation Army barracks is credited  with the statement that the sewer main  has not' a sufficient depth to drain a  7-foot, basement in the army building  and permit of the fall called for under  the city by-law, It is said that the sewer  main tis .? inghes too high and $i& it  ^vill have to be relaid in order to' take  care 'of the drainagu irom the army  building, ,  Recent arrivals from Manitoba report  that the harvesting in that province,  which has furnished employment for  some 18,000 men is about over and that  a considerable number of the men who  have been engagod in the work may. be  expected to move west in search of further employment on the railroad work  now going on in this province. Most of  the men employed in the harvest fleld3  of Manitoba wero drawn from different  paits of Ontario. This season harvester's  wages have ranged from $1.75 to $2 per  day with board. It is said that there will  be employment offering on the different  .railway lines now in course of construction in this province for at least 1500  Of ,the harvesters if they care to take it.  Herbert Preen, the Grand Forks man  arrested at Robson on Tuesday evening  upon a charge of obtaining: goods upon  false pretenses, has decided to comn*gnqe  an action against the men in "Graijxf  Forks who are responsible for his arrest, Qrcon adimits that he oTVed- a  small amount for board, but that just  having recovered from an attack of illness and being unable to work he p .id  what he could on account and retained  only sufficient money to take lum to his  home at/ High River. If tho. payment of  the amount of the account is necessary  to the securing of hig liberty Green saya  he will pay, but this will not affect his  suit for damages against those who are  responsible for his arrest and detention,  in the city lockup.  Patented by a Nelson Man.''  ���-Aldefman ��� Patterson is an inventor';  an inventor' who *" has  obtained ' letters  patent from the United States for a creation of his brain.'    The invention is  a useful^improvement in hydraulic air-  compressors, and the letters patent are  dated September 17th, 1901.   The s'peci-  flcations/which are a part of the letters  patent, ^describe   the   invention ��� as   a  simple andi.efficient apparatus for com-;  pressing, air.,aV mines and other places  -in districts'where there are streams' of  -water having a high head "and whose energy is available for'the purpose of compressing air, the' latter adapted to.be  utijized for operating drills, hoists, and  other mechanical appliances. , A further  object of the" invention is to brovide an j  apparatus'/of a portable ' nature  which I  necessitates the construction of certain  of the parts of comparatively light ma-  , terial, which is a feature of considerable  importance "in a mountainous country,  because ofthe fact'that the apparatus  must. ofttimes be transported by pack-  animals, and, furthermore,, to provide  means for (reinforcing ��� these   comparatively light parts of the apparatus in  order- to secure the requisite strength  and stiffness to withstand' the service.  '  The invention   cannot   well   he   described with a drawing.   The water received at the upper part of the machine  is allowed to come in contact with the  free air as it traverses a long pipe or  conduit,    and    during < its    progress  through the upper, section of the machine the water becomes   impregnated  or   commingled   with the   air   which  passes through the conduit with it, said  -conduit���being-provided���to-convey���the  air and water from the upper part of  the machine1 to the lower part thereof.'  This water and air conduit may be laid  down in the most convenient manner  to suit the inclination of a mountain or  other    elevation.      The     commingled  water and air on arriving at t;l_. lp-wer  part, of thg machine, iu.Jliere separated,  the water being allowed' to escape, while  th'e air, being under compression, is con*  veyed away from the apparatus to tho  machine whioh is to be operated by its  energy.  The patent was secured through the  agency of Marion & Marion of Montreal.  PERSONALS.
