It is charged by the faction who supported  the candidacy of W. W. Beer for mayor at the last city election,  that the small property owners should not be entrusted with  managing the city's business affairs. The small property owners elected Dr. Rose and aldermen Irving, Kirkpatriek, and  Gilker, aud these four constitute a majority of the present city  council. The faction who supported Mr. Beer for ma}'or elected  aldermen Bird, Selous, and Hamilton. This faction oppose  every effort mayor Rose aud aldermen Irving, Kirkpatriek, aud  Gilker make to retrench expenses, and have placed themselves  on record as being opposed to retrenchments in any of the civic  departments. Notwithstanding' their opposition, substuntial retrenchments have been made by the men who are charged with  representing a class who, had they the opportunity, would ruu  the city into debt.  The financial statement below, when compared with the first  six months of last year, shows very clearly that the city business affairs are being carefully and economically managed.

Tlio company agrees not to discriminate  against tlie union men without admitting  that they have ever done so in the past.  Preference will be given, to former employees as and when places can be made  for them at rates of pay goA'erning such  positions.

The union  had an agreement with the .firm. This  was violated by the strikers. It is owing  to the conservative policy of Donnelly  that over $1,500,000 has been added to the  pay-roll in less than two years, and without a serious strike. .,  Employees in the Allis-.Chalmers shops  in Scranton, Pennsylvania, have organized an aid society, through which members receive 7*5 cents a day iu case of sickness or accident. The services of a doctor and medicine is supplied without cost,  and a death benefit of- $100 is provided for.  The company has agreed to contribute a  sum equal to that paid liy the employees.  A peculiar case arising out of the painter's strike, at Toronto lis causing a good  deal of comment in Eastern newspapers.  A painter bought a stove on the installment plan for $(J0. He paid $56. Then  the strike came and he missed two payments. A bailiff was put in his house,  and he must either pay $20 in laAV and  laAvyer's fees or lose his stove.  The senate has given; the union label  bill the six month's hoist. It is ten years  since the bill was introduced. Each session finds its advocates, headed by D. J.  O'Douoghuei the fatherjof the Canadian  labor movement, pressing then* claim be-  before that despotic and witless body of  legislators. j  The world's typewriting record is  claimed by Miss Mary Pretty, a clerk in  the patent office at Washington, who has  accomplished the remarkable feat, of typing 20,400 words in six [hours. She had  only ten minutes rest ana refreshed herself with beef tea and bananas.  they did seven years ago. If this amount  were equally divided each individual  would have about $6.50.  "My religion and niyj politics are two  things I will allow no man to interfere  with," said a member id a trade union  meeting last week." While sentiments of  this kind exist in trades unions, there, is  little likelihood of Labor succeeding as a  party. ______  Guolph, Ontario, city council are desirous that tlie city purchase the street railways from the present company.  Statisticians figure out that the people  of the United States are carrying $500,-  000,000 more money in their pockets than  "Don't be afraid to ask for small subscriptions. The poor give much more in  proportion and more Avillingly than the  rich," said the Rev. F. B. Savage, in giving instruction to ministers on "the only  way to pay a church debt."  A development of the myriad of labor  troubles to which the industrial interests  of the country have been subjected is the  the proposed "fonnation of a company for  insuring employers against loss through  strikes. _______  The Western Federation of Minors  claims to be the richest labor organization  in the Avorld, with $3,000,000 in its treasury. The union is twelve years old and  claims a membership of 75,000.  By a referendum vote the Associated  Iron and Steel Workers of Great Britain  have declared - against an 8-hour work  day. Only one-third were in favor of 8-  hour shifts. y.'  It is said Victoria is supplying Vancouver with' non-union bricklayers. The  non-unionists are members of an alleged  union of bricklayers in Victoria.  The Chicago Typographical Union will  erect a lrailding for its own use and for  rental purposes, the cost of which will be  $100,000. .  The United Mine Workers will spend  $1,000,000, if required, to organize thc  workers' in tlie Irwin, Pennsylvania, coal  fields.    The bartenders of Fernie are asking for  a Avage scale of $70 a mouth.  COURT-HOUSE TO BE WILT.

Kellie, who, sat in the legislative assembly from 1890 to 1S98 as a member for  Revelstoke riding, asked for and got permission to reply. Mr. Kellie is likely to  be the Liberal candidate in- tlie Revelstoke riding this fall. Oii his return, to  Nelson next Aveek, premier McBride will  arrange for commencing work ou the new  court-house. Speaking in a general way  of the political situation throughout the  province, the premier was sangnine that  the victory would be with the Conservatives, as thc party was united in nearly  every riding.   Referring to the effort that  is being locally made to make it appeal*  that the party is split in Nelson, and that  he, as premier, should step in and decide  who should be the candidate of the party  in Nelson, the premier said that the.

Hodgins, when iii London en" route from  Johannesburg to Nelson, met three men  who were well-known iu Nelson in the  early days.   One was T. J.

Si  Mr. Justice Armour of Canada Died in London Today; His Holiness the Pope Still Alive  [Associated l'ress to The Evening- Tribune.]  Roans, July 11.���Today brought to a  , close a full week since pope Leo Avas  stricken \Arith illness, and it found him  still battling against death. Last night  he enjoyed considerable periods of repose.  Dr. Lap-JOn^'eniaiued ueai-^the sick room  nthroughtout the night. There was little  occasion for his services. When Dr. Maz-  zoui joined him in the sick-room at 8 :30  this morning, they found that their patient had not suffered any serioxis depression, in the night, although the same terrible weakness Avas manifest. The usual  bulletin Avas issued at 9 o'clock and it  shoAvcd conditions in thc sick-room practically unchanged, the pulse, temperature,  and respiration being almost identical  with that maintained yesterday. The  most cheering feature of the bulletin wns  the silence concerning any aggravation of  tlio pleuric conditions.  Within tho great collonuade front of St.  Peters' there continued the same gathering of anxious crowds, with steady lines  of cardinals and distinguished members of  the diplomatic corps to learn tlie result of  the doctors' conference. Even beforo daylight groups gathered at thc entrance  seeking the latest information. The  weather continues ideal and contributes  greatly to the comfort, of the patient.  Usually the room reeks in summer with  the fierce heat of thc sun and the exhalation from surrounding marshes, but now  the elements are lending every encouragement towards the recovery of the illustrious patient. The sun shines from a  cloudless sky and the heat is tempered by  balmy westerly breezes. The temperature seldom rises above 85 degrees Farne-  hoit in tlie day and fhe nights are refreshingly cool. An affecting intervieAV has  occurred betweeu the pontiff, cardinal  Statolli, and three other cardinals of the  various degrees of the sacred college.  Cardinal Statolli and his companions  were admitted to the presence of the pope  as a. special favor following his earnest entreaties. In the gentlest manner, cardinal Macchi speaking for all told the pope  the universal interest taken in his condition, adding, "Prayers are going up everywhere that the Lord may preserve for the  benefit of the church the precious life of  vour holiness."  "I thank your eminence," replied the  pope, "it will be as God wishes; we must  submit humbly to his holy will.'' So saying the sufferer pressed the hand of each  of thc cardinals as they withdrew.  One of the cardinals present at the interview spoke afterwards of the remarkable changes that had been wrought since  he last liad seen the pope, only last Sunday night, when extreme unction was administered to his holiness.   The cardinal  said "the appearance of the holy father is  insensely   painful.     He   maintains    his  mental acumen but his brave spirit is ter-  ribly_broken.__ This was jg______U^appjir_s  ent'to me. I have observed a great change  in his physical condition during the last  live days. His words are littered A\Tith  difficulty, and he raises his head only after  an effort. His face is emancipaten, and  his eyes deeply sunk. His extreme weakness is evident at the first glance. There  remains only a shadoAV of the man."  (Associated l'ress to The Evening Tribune.]  Rome, July 11.���A rumor has gained  limited circulation here that the pope is  failing rapidly, but the report is not traceable to any authoritative source, and is  entirely without confirmation.  [Associated l'ress to The livening Tribune.]  London, July 11.���Sir John Douglas  Armour, a justice of the supreme court of  Canada and a member of the Alaskan  boundary commission, who has been ill  for some' time, and recently suffered a relapse, died at the London residence of his  son this morning.  [Associated l'ress to The Evening Tribune.]  London, July 11.���Danny Maher, the  American jockey Avho Avas injured iu an  automobile accident near Caterham yesterday af terroou, and Avas taken in au unconscious condition to the hospital, is reported to be better this morning. His  chauffeur, who was injiu'ed at the time,  is in a precarious condition.  [Associated Press to The Evening Tribune]  Bisley, England,* July 11.���Half of the  teams contesting in the rifle shooting  match for the Palma trophy finished at  first range this morning. The English  team led with a score of 282, and thc Americans were second with a score of 277  points to their credit.  Pekin, July 10.���The demoralization of  the administration in the province of  Kwang by the lately cashiered officials is  indicated by the reported desertion to the  rebels of 1(!00 soldiers Avith their arms.  Notwithstanding this the conditions are  better as the famine is disappearing. According to reliable foreigners, the leader  of the Honnan rebellion, Avho Avith his  mother was beheaded by the governor,  Avas not defeated but surrendered on advise of the French consul, to *>vhoin he  appealed and said he had been forced to  usurp the authority for self-preservation  from the opposing factions. He requested  the con.sul to represent the situation to  the governor. These representations were  made and the consul advised the rebel  Jeadei^tO_sui-reiKlei*.^^.The=coiu*t.reAvardedi  the officers concerned in the subsequent  decapitation of the rebel leader. Foreigners regard the affair as an act of treachery  and fear difficulties to the French on account of tho consul's connection with it.  Cues-ion, July 10.���A Liberal-Conservative association has been organized at  Creston. A meeting for the election of  officers wa.s held in the hall of .the local  labor union, kindly lent for tlie "occasion.  There was a very good attendance of tho  residents of the district, Avhich distinctly  shoAvcd that Liberal-Conservative principles had a very strong hold in the minds  of those living in this part of the valley of  the Kootenay. The following is thc list  of oilicers: President R. J. Long; vice-  president, James Compton; secretary-  treasurer, A. Okell; executive committee,  George Hobden, William J. Dow, E. Mal-  laudiiinu, James Huscroft, and Thomas  Qnuif. Tho choice of a. president is  looked upon as a good one, ainurcpopnlar  man in this district it would be very difficult to find.  The crops with the advent of wu*m  weather should be vo_y plentiful this  year. For a timo the root crops were suffering for the want of rain, but the late  wet weather has more than supplied any  deficiency in this respect. Sunshine, and  warmth aro what are required by the  rancher to gladden his heart.  J. A. Kelly of Nelson has been here for  a few days making calls upou some of his  former patrons in fruit trees. He mot  Avith very good success, and many Into  settlers have giveii him orders for trees to  bo delivered this fall. Although Creston  produces quite a largo crop of straAvber-  ries, the supply Avas not nearly adequate  to tho demand for this kind of fruit from  tho towns further cast on the Crow's Nest  road.  C. P. Hill, thc founder of Port Hill, Idaho, arrived in Creston yesterday, and  left for Port Hilll on tho Kootenay Valley  road this morning.  Another Conservative, has been added  to tho population since the association was  organized. A son has been born to Mr.  and Mrs. R. J. Long.  The international boundary survey  party are at present camped at 'the. mouth  of Boundary creek on the eastern side of  the Kootenay valley.   Tho weather has  been very unpropifcious so far for work,  and consequently little progress has been  made.  Rome,   July   !-).���Monsignor   Volponi,  who was stricken  with synocope early  ^ye.stei-day^died.this^niorning^shortly-af-  ter   the   doctors in attendance had announced that all hope had been abandoned.  Although the condition of the pope is still  the center of interest, the case of monsignor  Volponi has attracted much attention, not only because of his office of secretary of the consistorial congregation, to  which he was appointed by pope Leo, but  also on account of tho manner in which  he Avas seized by his fatal illness, and it  is hardly possible to describe the sensation and emotion which has prevailed at  the Vatican when his death was announced.  From the moment he avus stricken and  fell on the floor, monsignor Volponi lost  entire   power  of speech and the use of  the entire right side of his body, and he  was apparently unconscious when he died.  It will be impossible to keep tlio news of  the death of monsignor Volponi from tho  pope, as the office of secretary of the consistorial congregation, to which pope Leo  had ��� appointed the deceased prelate on  July 5th, the last appointment mado by  his holiness, must be filled without delay  in view of the possibility of a papal interregnum.    As it is known, at the moment  a pope dies the secretary of state ceases to  exercise his functions, which  pass to the  hands of the secretnry of the consistorial  congregation, whoso career i.s from that  time assured, as oceording to custom he i.s  the first cardinal to be appointed by the  now pope.    The sarcastic humor of the  Romans reveals itself even at this solemn  and sad-moment.   The remark has been  made that pope Leo,  not satisfied with  having killed all tlie cardinals created by  his predecessor,  except cardinal Croglia,  and over a hundred of those created by  himself, now begins to kill those created  by his successor.  Fokt Ai.niUK, Ontario, July !).���At  11 :'J0 tonight two cars on tho street  railway collided at (lie corner of Cumberland and Bay streets, resulting in the injury of several people. Motorman Tapp  had a leg cut off above the ankle and sustained other injuries. Harry Scott of  Fort William had Iii*- headjdriven through  a window and was cut badly on the face  and head. Mrs. King of Fort William  was injured slightly. The front of one  car was badly wrecked. Motorman Tapp  Avas pinned under the wreck, and wa.s  Avith difficulty extricated from the posi  tion.

London, July 9.���President,   Loubot's  visit to London was brought to a close at  8:40 o'clock today, when tho French chief  magistrate left, Victoria station for Dover.  The scenes and incidents of his departure  testified to Iioav the republican  president  had captured   all   classes   and Avon  the  popular good will.   Despite  the earliness  of his departure, croAvds lined  the route  from St. James palace fo the rnihvay station,   and   the   British   " Hurrah "   and  French "Vive Loubet"  reechoed through  the streets until the president, liad entered  the station.   Hero the nation's guest wa.s  met, by the king and his suite and members   of   the  French  embassy.     A.s   M.  Loubot's carriage dreAV up, king Edward  advanced  with  outstreched   hand,   and  taking   the president familiarly by  the  arm, led him through  tho Availing room  to the royal car.    King Edward grasped  M. LOubet's right hand and shook it Avith  extreme cordiality, Avhile with  the left  hand   he   putted   the   president   on   the  shoulder.   His majesty showed the president  into the  royal car, and stood chatting Avith him until  the train pulled out  amid cheers and shouts of "Vive Loubet",  mingled with the strains of "Tho Marseillaise."    President Loubet stood avuv-  ing his hat in  his gloved hand until the  royal    special    disappeared   from   vicAV.  Upon his arrival at Dover M. Loubet embarked on  the French cruiser Guiehon,  and tho vessel sailed at  once for Calais,  escorted by a British flotilla and followed  by   farewell salutes from  tho  fleet and  castle.    Before his departure from Dover  president Loubet telegraphed to king Edward thanking him  for the hearty reception accorded him  " as the representative  of France, the friend of England."  London, July !).���The Tokio correspondent of Tho Times says: Thu Japanese  cabinet crisis i.s still unsettled. The leading journals bitterly lament the incident  which they claim tends to create a false  impression regarding the nation's mood  on questions of foreign policy on  which Japan is unanimously resolute. It  is understood that the crisis is due to the  interference of the elder statesmen who  hamper tho action of the ministry. The  Russians, continues the correspondent,  have laid 11 cable from Autung to Yong-  anipho-without consulting Corea. Japan  has protested. that_Cprea_is bountLto^nrtK,  vent a foreign poAver acquiring,- any telegraphic privileges interfering with Japanese interests.

These  men are placing themselves oh record as  being willing to support candidates of a  political party whose leaders are pledged  to deal with one section of the province  in a manner different from the way in  which other sections of the province aie  dealt with.   Ahd in doing this, the leaders  of the Liberal party are only carrying out  .the'views''of'-the leaders of the Liberal  party in the Eastern provinces.   When  the people of Kootenay, irrespective of  occupation, asked the federal government  for the same treatment, in tlie way of  protective duties, as was freely accorded  the people of other sections of Canada,  what they asked for was denied them.  When a party shoAVS itself willing to discriminate against the people of ii section of  the country, it should not be given additional power.   The return of a majority of  Liberals to the next legislative assembly  means to Kootenay the same discriminating treatment in provincial matters as has  just been accorded Kootenay mine owners  by the Liberal party in Ottawa in the  matter-of-^protection=to=the=-product=-of-  their mines and smelters.  Accordiug to a statement made by a  syndicate that is developing mines near  Ymir, the cost of smelting and transporting ores iu Kootenay is very Ioav. When  small lots of ore can be hauled by rail-  Avay twenty-five miles and smelted for  $3.15 a ton, surely the charge that the local customs smelters charge unfairly high  rates is not based on fact. Six years ago,  F. Augustus Heinze of Butte, Montana,  built the smelter at Trail and secured a  contract to smelt ore from the Le Roi  mine. The rate lie obtained for hauling  the ore from the mine to Trail (less than  a do_cn miles) and smelting it wns $11 a  ton. Today the owners of the Trail smelter charge $4.50 a ton for hauling aud  smelting Rossland ores. The saving to  tho mine-OAvners is $0.50 a ton, nnd there  is a further saving of $1.00 per ton in percentages of metal returned. If tlie mine  owners of Rossland are saving $8.10  iu smelter charges over the rates charged  six years ago, British Columbia should bo  congratulated on having within its boundaries smelting works that are so manifestly operated iu the interests of the country in which they are located.  Finding fault with the federal government for substituting a bounty for increased duties on lead and load products  will do no good. The Liberul party, on  principle, is opposed to protective duties,  and it is always more willing to experiment with neAV fiscal ideas than maintain  a fiscal policy that it has not the courage  to abolish altogether. The people of  Kootenay were almost unanimous in favor of increasing thc duties on lead and  lead products to at least a parity with the  duties ou other raw and manufactured  products of Canada; but tlio people of  Kootenay have little Avcight at Ottawa at  best, and none at all when their views  ran counter to th'e "free trade" sentiment  that controls the party in power in Canada. Tho bounty of $500,000 a year is 2  per cent on tho actual capital invested in  the silver-lead mines in East and West  Kootenay, and if these mines have not  been able to work, or pay dividends, the  bounty will not, in our opinion, lift them  into the column of dividend payers. But  finding fault now Avill not help matters.  It is in order for the provincial government to place a reserve on all the land on  Poplar creek and adjacent thereto, because of its supposed great mineral value.  Poplar creek is in Kootenay, and once  anything valuable, whether it be gold,  silver, copper, lead, coal, or oil, is discovered in Kootenay a reserve is at once  placed on it, so as to keep it out of the  hands of "speculators." The lauds in  southeast 'Kootenay are under reserve���  no one knows for what purpose���and  prospectors Avho have made coal and oil  locations under the general laAvs of the  province are denied then* plain rights  under these general kws. The peoplo of,  Kootenay are beginning to ask whether  they have the same rights, under the laws,  as have the people of other districts of the  province. They are not being fairly  treated, but they have a way to redress  their wrongs. This fall there will be a  general election for members of a legislative assembly. From the members elected  a responsible government Avill be formed.  Two parties Avill have candidates in every  constituency in Kootenay, and tho professions of these two parties should be well  considered beforo a ballot is cast. The  Tribune has stated, and the statement has  not been contradicted, that the men who  are admitted to be leaders of the Liberal  party, namely, Joseph Martin, W. "W. B.  Mclnnes, and John Oliver,- favor passing  special laws to deal with the coal and oil  lands iu Kootenay. They would shut out  the prospector and sell the lands to the  highest bidder. The Liberal-Conservatives of Kootenay, with the exception of  a few corporation lawyers, are in favor of  administering the laws as they are in the  statute-books, without fear or without  favor. They believe that Kootenay can  best bo made a hive of industry through  giving every man a chance. The prospec-  tor who locates coal or _oil_.jand one day.  may within a year be a capitalist employing hundreds of men at good wages.. This  is thc incentive that keeps men in the  'mountains enduring hardships. Take  away this incentive by special legislation,  as advocated by Messrs. Martin, Mclnnes,  and Oliver, and Kootenay will become an  abiding place for men without either courage or enterprise.  The Nelson Economist says the Dominion Day celebration at Nelson would have  been a greater success "had there been a  " small amount of intelligence displayed  " in the arrangement, of tlie various  " events." At present the Economist is  a trifle "sore" on Fred Starkey for calling  it down for making untruthful statements  regarding a question of local politics, and  as Mr. Starkey was secretary of the celebration committee, anything he may do  from this time on will uot meet with the  approval of tbe Economist���unless he  (Starke.*) sweetens it (the Economist)  with "sugar" from the bar'l.  One of the most outrageous frauds  practiced in this province is that practiced  by lawyers, who act as the legal advisers  of men appointed a.s assignees and liquidators. For every- dollar general creditors  get out of the estates of assignees the  laAvyers get two. Innumerable ex-parte  applications for orders are made in chambers before judges whose only concern appeal's to be to see that the lawyers' costs  are taxed up against any money that may  be in the hands of the assignee. Nelson  has a number of these legal sharks, who  play the game for all it is worth.  The celebration has demonstrated beyond a doubt that wcll-plnyed games will  attract gate receipts in a wonderful manner, and that (here i.s practically no risk,  beyond the weather, in bringing a good  lacrosse or basebidl team here to play,  so  long as the public is satisfied that it Avill  see good play. The hold that those two  games have ou tho people of Canada is  truly marvellous and shows that the love  of honest sport is as active as it was with  the Greeks of old, among whom the  Olympian games were only regarded as  second in importance to their religious exercises. Last week's success in this direction should be taken up by those who  have the agricultural and race track  grounds proposition in hand, for it is a  tangible argument in favor of the citizens  taking a practical interest in it. There is  no doubt whatever that a good race track  with grounds for games fitted up-to-date  ind accessible by tram could be made pay  handsomely. The initial investment may  be somewhat heaA*y, on account of the  situation of the city, but a substantial interest on the investment is in sight, as  evidenced by the crowd at the baseball  and lacrosse games last Aveek. So far as  horse racing is concerned, Nelson is far  more favorably located to make this a  success than if it wero located on a prairie  country. It can draw from the Northwest and East Kootenay on the east, the  Boundary aud Okanagan on the west, and  the state of Washington on tho south.  With these three horse-raising districts  around there should be witnessed here, in  the near future, sport worthy of the name.  A LOYAL CONSERVATIVE.  [\7ietoria Colonist, July 3rd.]  It is not often that Ave deal with the individuality of any member of the Liberal-  Conservative party. But the Conservatives of Victoria are having thrust at them  daily that the party in Kootenay, particularly in Nelson, is being split through the  factious individuality of Mr. John Houston, just as the Conservatives at Nelson  are haA'ing it thrust at them that the  party is split iu Victoria, through the factious opposition of one or two of its members. Neither statement is true, but both  statements are likely to damage tho  party's interests where their falsity is not  known. Mr. John Houston of Nelson has  been a force in politics municipal, provincial, and federal in the Kootenay country  for quite a number of years. During these.  years his loyalty to what he considered  the interests of the city he lived in, the  province, or the Dominion of Canada has  neA*er been questioned, nor has his great  ability nor his zeal.   He has perhaps been  too little ready to give credit to those who  differed from him for disinterestedness  equal to his own, and he has been a heavy  and an unmerciful castigator of his foes ou  various issues.   He has therefore many  enemies and these are not confined to any  particular party.   But he has also many  friends, more friends than enemies.   A  party  line   fight   in  provincial   politics  meant more to Mr. Houston than possibly  to'any other politician in the province.  For two 'reasons.   In the first place, many  of his friends and supporters in the past  have.been Liberals, and a small group of  Conservatives have been very bitter opponents of his in municipal politics.- They  have evidently uot ceased their opposition  at the call of the party, while he,  at the  call of the party, has divested himself of  some of his strength in dealing AA'ith them.  To oiu- mind, such men'disgrace the name  .of"Conservative, because they are' trying  to use the party to wreak a private animosity.   Upon what question of provincial politics do they oppose Mr. Houston?  Do they subscribe to the Revelstoke platform?   He helped to frame it.   Do they  protest against the Redistribution Act?  He was the main instrument in passing  such of its provisions as apply to Kootenay.   Do   they  disapprove of the constitution   of    the   Conservative   Union  of  the  province?   He is the  president.  We  of   the  Coast  cannot  be  expected  to   know    the   ins   and   outs   of   the  local   situation at Nelson;     But we do  knoAv enough to knoAv that loyalty to the  Conservative party, the situation of the  _pro\-iuce.andj-_.the,government,^caU-ini-^  pei-atively for a very different attitude to-,  wards Mr. John Houston, the president of  the    Conservative   Union,    than    that  adopted by a certain clique in Nelson.  In  the second place,  Mr.  Houston finds a  demand made upon his party loyalty,  by  the fact that his allegiance and co-operation is required for men to whom ho has  been opposed upon issues not uoav drawn.  If John Houston chose to bolt the party,  we venture to say he would emerge individually triumphant in NelsonAvliilo some  other peoplo in Kootenay would not.   He  does not so choose. Why? Because ho is a  loyal Conservative. In his paper last week  ho quoted a very ignorant statement as to  the attitude of the provincial Conservative party on A*arious questions affecting  labor.   He confuted that statement by the  records of Charles Wilson, R. F. Green,  captain Tatlow,  aud Richard   McBride,  and said not a word about his oavii. Every  one of these were gentlemen belonging to  a section of the party to Avhich Mi*. Houston, prior to the introduction of .party  lines, was opposed.   Not one of them has  done as much for the working men of  British Columbia as Mr. Houston himself.   How easy it would'have been for  him to have let the weight of the accusation he quoted rest on them, and to have  absolved   himself!    But   no!   He   gives  them credit, where credit is due, and winds  up by saying:   "Legislation that really  benefited labor lias not' been secured by  the 'professional' friend of working men;  but, instead, it has invariably been secured  by men who are broad-minded enough to  legislate for all classes. The 'professional'  labor legislator is not better than the 'professional' corporation legislator, and sometimes is even worse'."That is what we call  party loyalty.   His reference to men with  whom, if he were factious, he would be  at daggers drawn, is that in a very important respect, they are "broad-minded  enough to legislate for all classes."   If  the party iu Nelson desires Mr. Houston  to be its standard-bearer and duly nominates him, we hope that those Conservatives   now   endeavoring   to   prevent his  nomination will loyally assist in electing  the party candidate, and we are pretty  sure they will.   A split con fined to Nelson would not do any injury there, but its  effect  throughout the province would be  bad.    We  need united effort everywhere  to insure victory all along the line.

Grand Forks, Trail, and Nelson, with.the exception of J that shipped from the LeRoi and Kootenay  mines, which went to the Northport smelter. The output  of the Yniiij, Wilcox, Arlington, Second Relief, Silver King,  Venus, andjGrauite mines, all in Nelson district, cannot be  given, as tlie ore is treated in mills at the mines and only  the concentrates shipped to the smelters. The shipments  from Slocan mines were small last week and are not given.  It is safe to|  $150,000  estimate the value of the ore mined last week at  The owners of claims on the divide  from which flow Lemon, Springer, and  Six-Mile creeks are agitating for roads and  trails that will enable them to work their  properties to the best advantage. Most of  the claims are in the Slocan City mining  division, and all are in what was formerly  the Slocan riding. Tho money appropriated for roads and trails for that riding  has been used to the best advantage, no  doubt; but many of-the claim-owners are  of the opinion that Nelson is their best  trading point, and the route to reach Nelson is down Six-Mile creek., A few years  ago parties who had interests neai* Oro  built a wagon road up the creek for a distance of nine miles; and this road could  be put in good repair for the expenditure  of $1000. Were this road extended seven  miles many groups of claims could be  reached by wagon from the steamboat  landing at the mouth of the creek, a point  passed by three steamboats daily.  Among others Avho,favor the Six-Mile  creek route are C. B. Hittle, Pat Nolan,  Thomas Benton; and Gilbert Finkle, all  of whom have had interests in that section for a number of years and none of  whom are residents of Nelson. The groups  of claims that would be reached by the repairing of the Six-Mile road and its extension are the Lady Franklin, Crazy  Jane, Alpine, Emmet, Ocean, Lone Dutchman, Black Prince, Two Friends, St.  Louis, and Maple Leaf.  Six-Mile creek'is now in Ymir riding,and  John Houston, ex-M. P. P. of Nelson riding, has written the government urgiug  that the portion of the road now built be  repaired as soon as possible.  In addition to the concentrating plant  to be installed for the Silver Cup and Nettie L. mines, Trout Lake district, a chlor-  idising plant Avill be added for extraction  of gold and.silver values from the concentrates. The second-class dumps of the  Silver Cup for instance will average ��9 in  gold, 8 ounces in silver, 10 per cent zinc,  and 5 per cent lead, so that by concentration good values in goldland silver will be  obtained and by chloridising the remainder, the, extraction .will.probably.be. 85 per,  cent of the total gold and silver contents  of the ore. Tavo hundred tons of salt has  been ordered for tho chloridising plant.  L. P. Hornberger of Philadelphia, manager of the Nortli Fork Placer Company,  operating at Erie, is at the Hume for a foav  days, nursing a badly sprained knee. Mr.  Hornberger is avoII satisfied with the progress made this season, a ditch 227 feet  long has been run on dry ground, the  gravel beloAV the six-foot level averagiug  50 cents a cubic yard. The work necessary for installing a giant is being proceeded with as fast as possible, and it  is expected thnt all will bo ready for extensive working in about three months.  W. Blakemore of Montreal and Fernio  and O. P. Hill of New York and Port Hill  are in Nelson. Both are interested in  iron mines near Kitchener, in Goat River  mining division, and both are of the opinion that a bounty of $15 a ton on the lead  contents of oiu- galena ores, paid for a  period of five years, should give an impetus to mining in the Slocan and other  silver-lead camps in Kootenay.  The Canadian King mine, near Erie,  has shipped a car of ore to the Trail smelter, the returns of which were $57 per ton  ���the value is gold with a little silver.  The mine is under lease to William Connolly, who is doing well. Helms anothei  car ready for shipment, and expects even  better returns from it, as the assays are  much higher.   F. C. Green of Nelson is locating tlie  stations for the Silver Cup tramway near  Ferguson, in the Trout Lake district.  The Riblet Iron Works of Nelson have the  contract for putting in the tramway,  Avhich Avill be thc Riblet system, now recognized as the best iu use on the Pacific  Coast.   Lardeau Eagle: "It is said that the section hands at Lardo are making lists full  of money these days pumping gold seekers  from Liu-do to the scene of the recent, excitement ou Poplar creek and charging $5  a head.    The distance is about 12 miles.  The Canadian Pacific is on the- lookout  for coal lands, and A. H. llwder, of  Easton, Pennsylvania, is in Nelson in the  company's interest.  Chicago capitalists have secured interests iu the Alexandria group of gold claims  on the divide between Forty-Nine and  Bird creeks, 13 miles southeast of Nelson  and about four iniles from tho end of the  Forty-Nine creek wagon road. The  group is made up of tho Alexandria, Prudence, and Ladysmith claims, all of which  arc crown-granted. Considerable prospecting development work has been done  on the claims; enough to prove that the  veins are of good sine and thc ore of a payable grade. L. J. D. Berg has had control of the property, and he has induced  Chicago men to go in with hhn. These  men have ample capital to develop the  property and purchase mill machinery.  No stock Avill be issued until the property  becomes a producer, as a market for  shares in mining companies no longer exists in Chicago. There is, however, plonty  of money for developing mines.  u One of the men interested iu tlio Alexandria group is George Goddard, who for  many years had charge of "a deportment  in the Armour packing works at tho  Union Stock Yards in Chicago. Mr. Goddard, who is also interested in several  mining ventures in Idaho, accompanied  Mr. Berg from Chicago.  Mr. Berg says a force of from 12 to 35  men Avill be employed at once in sinking  a working shaft and doing other development work. Tlie ore is free-milling and a  mill Avill be built as soon as development  work justifies such au expenditure.  The Standard Development Syndicate,  Limited, of Nelson, has issued a circular  to shareholders, which contains a statement showing that the final settlements  on oro shipped netted, after payment of  railway freight and smelter charges, nn  average of $i!".30J4 per ton on shipments  from Double Standard, $3 7.8!) per tou on  quartz from Donble Standard, $12.47 per  ton on ore shipped from Hunter V., ��7.30  per ton ou ore shipped from Hunter  V., and$9.54 and ��9.54 per ton on oro  shipped from the Hunter V. and Double  Standard. The average for all shipments  was ��30 per tou. Tho ore was smelted at  -the=Hall"Miiiessiiielterat"Nclsoii7'aud=tri6"  freight and treatment charges ranged from  ��ii.J5 to $5.SO a ton. Surely such low  charges must be an advantage to theniine-  OAvncrs. Tho force at the'mine of the  Syndicate has been increased. The mines  aro situated on the divide between Hidden and Porcupine creeks, about seven  miles from Ymir.  Tho directors of the company owning  the Molly Gibson mine, at the head of  Kokanee crook, Nelson district, have decided to resume operations. A concentrator will bo built near the mine, as tlie lead  and zinc values in the low-grade ore are  worth saving. Instructions to begin work  are looked for daily at Nelson.  M. S. DiiA'ys i.s down from the Silver  King mine. Ho has 2(> men on the payroll and ships 220 tons of ore every ten  days to the Hall Mines smelter.  Can Make Copper at Seven Cents.  (Iloslnn Commercial.]  The mines of the Granby Consolidated  Mining Company, at Phoenix, British Columbia, aro described by thoso who have  recently inspected them as a proposition  of tremendous possibilities. Its ore body  is fully proved for 2500 feet in length by  4000 feet wide and 'J00 feet deep, making  a total of fully 20,000,000 tons in sight.  This ore is not broken by dikes or other  rock intrusions, and carries just enough  iron, sulphur, silica, etc., to make it a  perfect smelting proposition. It i.s figured  out that it can be mined at a cost of ��3  per ton, and it. is believed that it can ultimately be smelted for another dollar per  ton, though this is yet to be demonstrated.  The ore has a value of ��4.50 to ��5 per  ton, yielding from 25 to 27 pounds of fine  copper and ��3.75 in gold and silver. It  costs from lj_ to \% cents per pound for  refining and freight on the bullion from  the time it leaves the smelter till it is  ready for sale in the market at New York.  If the ore c-nn be handled and all costs  met Avith a total expenditure of S'S.50 for  each ton, therefore, it will represent only  a 7 cents per pound cost for tho copper.  The company now has four furnaces  and is installing two more. Tlio six will  be capable ol' treating 2000 to 2500 tons of  THE LEAD BOUNTY.  The conditions on which the federal government will pa)' a  bounty on the lead contents of ore mined in Canada were foreshadowed iu a letter received from John L. Retallack by Bruce  White of Nelson yesterday. Mr. Retallack is in Ottawa as a  delegate of the silver-lead mine-owners of Kootenay, and it is  largely through representations made by him that the bounty is  not ou a sliding or disappearing scale. While the resolution  authorizing the payment of the bounty, as telegraphed from  Ottawa, does not contain all the conditions that will be made, it  is sufficiently explicit to be understood by the people of the  silver-lead camps.  The mine-owners who affect to believe that the local smelting  and freight rates are too high are protected, as the government  will exercise the right to allow these mine-owners to ship their  ore to the United States if it is shown that the local smelters  are charging unfair rates. This should be most satisfactory to  them, as it would appear through all the negotiotions leading  up to this action on the part of the federal government that the  ore producer, uot the ore smelter, was the one whose interests  were considered. The government maintained from the start  that it could not grant a bounty to the ore producer until the  existing bounty on lead refined in Canada was done away with.  The one aid to the smelting industry mest be repealed before aid  should be given to the producer of raw ore. The smelters knew  the}*- were up against it, and it was agreed on their behalf to accept the government's ultimatum. Such action is not encouraging to the men who have invested thousands of dollars in experimental lead refining works; but the government,Under the  customs regulations, which can be changed without an act of  parliament, ma}' grant the smelting and refining interests concessions that in a measure will help to offset the repeal of the  bounty uoav paid for refining lead bullion.  The resolutions as introduced by finance minister Fielding  are as follows:  1.���The goveruor-in-council may authorize the payment of a  bounty of 75 cents per 100 pounds of lead contained in lead-  bearing ores mined in Canada, provided that the sum to be paid  as such bounty shall���not exceed $500,000 in any fiscal year.  Provided also that when it appears to the satisfaction of the  minister charged with the administration of this act that the  standard price of pig lead in Loudon, Kngland, exceeds ��12  10s. per ton of 2240 lbs., such bounty shall be reduced proportionately by amount of such excess.  ���  2.���Payment of.'said bounty may be made from time to time  to the extent of 60 per cent of the full bounty authorized, subject to adjustment at the close of each fiscal year. If at the  close of any year it shall appear that during the year the quantity of lead produced on which the bounty is authorized exceeds  33,3.30 tons of 2000 lbs. each, the rate of bounty, shall be reduced to such a sum as will bring the payments for the year'  within the limit mentioned in section 1.  3.���-If at an}' time it shall appear to the satisfaction of the  goveriior-iu-couucil that the charges for transportation and treatment of lead ores in Canacla are excessive, or that there is airy  discrimination which.prevents "the smelting of such ores in Canada on fair and reasonable terms, the goveruor-in-council ma)'  authorize the payment of. bounty at such reduced rate, as may  be deemed just, 011 lead contained in such ores mined iu Canada,  and exported for treatment abroad.  4.���Said bounties shall cease, and determine ou the 30th day  of June, 190S.  ore per day. With copper selling at \A%  cents per pound, there should be a net  profit of $1.80 per ton on the ore treated,  or at the rate of $3,290,000 to $1,020,000  annually, equivalent to better than a dollar per share on tho' company's outstanding stock.  ,. At present smelting operations are curtailed by inability to get an adequate supply of coke. This trouble Avill be remedied shortly. Coke costs $0.50 per ton at  the smelter. Miners are paid $3.50 per  day and surfacemen ��53. It is the plan of  thc management to continue smelter op-  eratioiissisa^present^until'the-matter'Of*  costs has fully been demonstrated, after  which the question of doubling the number of furnaces Avill receive attention. In  the meantime additional exploratory work  is being done.  It is declared that the estimate of 20,-  000,000 tons of oro in sight is very conservative. It is based on a measurement  of 2500 feet in length aud a depth of '100  feet, while a shaft is already doAvn 100  feet deeper, and in ore all tho way. John  Stanton believes the Granby Avill make its  copper at a cost of 7 cents per-pound.  The Deal is a Good One.  The Seattle syndicate that litis closed a  deal Avith .Tames Dunsmuir for the purchase outright of 50,000 acres of timber  land on Vancouver Island have, according to the Nanaimo Herald, a good tiling.  Cruisers estimate that there are 2,500,000,-  000 feet of lumber on the land that will  bo   selected by the Seattle men.     Just  what are the plans of the syndicate have  not  yet developed.   They may build a  mill and manufacture the lumber for market."   If they prefer to ship the logs to the  other side, however,  there is nothing to  prevent it.   The timber being on crown  granted lands there will be no duty, either  import on the purt of the United States or  export on the part of the Dominion government, on logs sent out. The syndicate  can ship the logs to Puget Sound or any  other part of thc United States for manufacture   into   lumber if they so desire.  Part of the land is on salt water but most  of it is on Campbell river.   It Avill not be  known for some time yet Avhether a mill  will be built.    Most of the timber is fir  and cedar and is said to be of fine quality.  The three Seattle men in the deal are all  well known businoss men.   Mi-. Brownell  lives in Everett.   All are men of ample  means and despite the big price paid for  the tracts there will be no lack of money  to build a mill or to carry out any other  project to get tho timber out.  On account  of its magnitude the deal'will attract the  attention of the lumbermen in all parts of  the country and especially in the northwest, where   there   is plenty of money  seeking    valuable   timber   investments.  Those Avho know the location of the timber say the deal is a good one for the pnr-  clirsers and  of   tlio   best   quality.     Tho  purchase price was $1,000,000.  Lardeatix, Lardeau, Lardo.  The name of the district in which Camborne is situate should be changed from  Liu-deau to Fish River, and the uauiO of  the district in which Trout  Lako   and  Ferguson are situate  should bo   named  Trout  Lake.    Before  mineral   avus   discovered in paying quantities, the country  on Fish creek and around Trout lake AAras  known as the "Lardeau," and the only  way of reaching it was from Revelstoke  via the east arm of Upper Aitoav lake.  In 1892, G. B. Nagle, who has made his  -headq_artera^in=Revelstoko~for=a^d6z__r  years, purchased a piece of land at the  head of Kootenay lake, not far from tho  mouth of Lnrdeaux river, and started a  townsite which he named Lardo.   About  the same time, if we aro not mistaken,  James M.  Kellie, who also  makes" his  headquarters at, Revelstoke,  secured an  interest iu a piece of land at the head of  the east arm of Upper Arrow lake for a  townsite,   and   christened   it   Lardeau.  From this it would appear that the original spelling of the word Lardoaux was  changed in both instances by men who  made then- home at Revelstoke.    Since  then the peoplo on Kootenay lako spell  thc Avord Lardo and thoso of Rovelstoke  spell it Lardeau.   A map issued by the  provincial government in 3895 shows the  town of Lardeau on the east arm of Upper Arrow lake aud tho town of Lardo at  the upper end of Kootenay lake.   It also  shows a Lardo creek emptying into   the  upper or western end of Trout lake, and  the Lardo river, running from that lake  to Kootenay lake.   The only object The  Tribune has in referring to tho matter is  to sIioav that no one in Nelson had anything whatever to do with changing the  spelling of the word Lardeaux.  The Black Watch.  The curious name of tliat famous Highland regiment, the Black Watch, goes  back to its origin. About 1729 it occurred  to the government to raise and organize  independent companies of Highlanders.  To distinguish them from the regular  troops they were dressed in tartan of a  black, green, and blue pattern. As the  regular troops were known in Gaelic as  "red soldiers," so these Highlanders were  on account of then* sombre appearance,  called ,' Am Freiceadan Dubh," or Black  Watch. Then years later more Highland  companies were raised, and tho whole of  them were formed into a regiment of the  line. This regiment was embodied in  Perthshire, and since then it has written  thc name of the Black Watch into many  a page of British history.  Only Three Nominted.  Only three.candidates have so far been  nominated in the province, namely, T.  W. Patterson for the Islands, S. S. Taylor,  K. C, for Nelson, and T. W. Sterling for  Okanagan. -* '" _. ���-*<���: .���.'-'*-;'��� ^'1''1vvi-*"-i;V: ^*^V^.l  ��� ^vV:';-''/'^^'frl^>i*-^^  The Nelson Tribune  Evansvh.lr,   Indiana,   July   0.���Race  prejudices   tetween   blacks   aud   whites  brought on a reign of terror here on Sunday.   All last night and all day yesterday  armed mobs threatened the lives of citizens.    Gnu-stores Avere broken into and  Ave;:pons-'.net ammunition wore soiwd by  blacks and whites.   Two thousand whites  broke into the county- jail  to hunt for a  black victim; the Avail was forced with a  battering   ram.   Negro dives were ransacked and shot to pieces in the search for  the blacks,  and au  armed  company of  drilled blacks inarched through the streets  threatening the lives of whites.   The government has ordered out troops to quell  the disturbances, but thoy have not. arrived.     At  d-iylignt   Ibis   morning "'CO  armed white men started for the po,vder'  magazine near the city to secure explosives  with wlikh they would blow up the entire  negro colony of B-jptisttown, a suburb of  the city.       ���  Trouble lias been browing for months  '   :'.ud came to a crisis on Friday, when Lee  Bro>Au, a negro,  shot and killed-. patrolman Murray, who Avas trying to arrest  him while bent on the murder of a man  with whom ho had quarrelled.   Threats  of vengeance Avere followed by the surrounding of the jail.   Tho negro Avas removed  secretly from the city yesterday.  Patrolman    Massey    died    in    terrible  ogouy   aud   the   crOAvd become   menacing.   Twenty-five policemen Avere mobilized in the. jail and repulsed the'first attempt to force an entrance after the gates  avere crushed in.  Finding the negro gone,  the crowd raised the cry of "lull the negroes,"   and   arms  Avere*demanded.   A  company of. armed negroes,  aroused by  the race troubles, marched through the  streets shouting, "down with the Avhites,"  and threatening death to all if the negro  Avas lynched.   This started a rush for the  gun-stores by the Avhites.   Three  were-  broken open and foiu* hundred rifles and  revolvers Avith ammunition seized.  One negro Avoman is knoAvn to be dead,  and a .boj*' named Logan -was shot and  seriously Avounded by a negro. Tho mob,  shooting, Avent through streets inhabited  by negroes, and the confusion has prevented houses being searched for dead and  wounded. The armed company of negroes  had disappeared. All blacks fled the  streets, and failing to find victims, the resort of Budd Fruit Avas visited and shot to  pieces. Whether any wore killed there is  not yet knoAvn. The officials were power-  less. The negroes, after,the first armed  display of resistance, scattered and have  not made a stand since. They are flying  in disorder. Thousands of shots were  fired during the fight.  Evansa-ille, Indiana, July'7.���Six shot'  dead and twenty-five injured, four fa-  . tally, is the outcome of the race riots that  havo caused a reign of 'terror iu this; .city,  during the past four days. Atl0.:_0 last  night the Evausville company of national  guards, assisted by 200 special deputy,  sheriffs sworn in during the day, while  gum-ding the county jail in Avliich Avere  sixteen negro prisoners, poured a deadly  volley of buckshot and bullets into a crowd  of several thousand people led by a hundred armed rioters, Avhich was pressing  them back amid jeers and threats, accompanied by stones and missels. When the  smoke cleared'away thirty-one wounded  and dead lay on the pavements.  London, July 0.���The St. Petersburg  correspondent of the Standard telegraphs  that official circles there are nervous over  thc situation in the For East, especially  over count Cassini's diplomatic methods.  The Russian ambassador at Washington  is accused of malting too much of the petition regarding the Kishiueff massacre  and too little of the American policy in  the Far East. The Russian government,  continues the correspondent, Avohld have  looked AVith'equanimity ou thc presentation of the Kisheneff petition, which binds  nobody, if in return an understanding  could have been reached respecting Russia's claims to Manchuria. It is uoav  -fciired'that-Russia-Avill-beobliged-to-fore-^  go count Lamsorff's plans concerning  Manchuria and China, which depended ou  separating the United States from Japan  and Great Britain.  Kinx'icau, Manchuria, July  8.���All the  prominent Russian officials in Manchuria  aud Korea are attending the conference  at Port Arthur.    Aniong them are minister of war Kiiropatkin, admiral Alexiefl",  the Russian minister at Senol, (lie political agents in China and Korea, including  M. Pokotiloft', recently financial representative in Pekin; general Dessino, the military agent iu China, civil and military  officers at  Mukden,  Harbin,  aud Kirin,  and the administrator of New Clnvang.  The proceedings at the conference are en-  volved iu secrecy.   It is popularly supposed that the Russian officials are considering war questions.    The foreign commercial of!icials at NeAV Clnvang and Port,  Arthur believe that the possibility of war  is increasing steadily.   The Russian policy is believed to be to hold the present  positions   in Manchuria, including New  CliAvaug, and to take no steps to avert  trouble Avith Japan, as it is inferred that  Japan Avill bo.frightened.   The Avar feeling among Japanese in the northern part  of China is intensifying.   The Russian  civil 'administrator, 'with the   governor-  general of New Chwang, has commenced  the erection of a government building, designed to hold all the Russian officials, including the telegraph and telephone departments, in the center of the foreign  settlement, partly on land ceded by the  Chinese, according to Russian explanation, and partly on the   public  square,  about which the foreign consulates are  congegated.      The   residents    of    other  nationalities  are   preparing   to   protest  against this encroachment on the public  square.   A Russian company yesterday  completed the purchase of the river steam  tugs a business heretofore controlled by a  British company.    This is regarded as an  important step towards Russian control  of the harbor, as the neAV company is apparently acting on behalf of the Russian  government.   The British company had  four boats and the Russians have imported  two more.   All six A'essels are armed and  commanded by Russian officers and the  crOAVS aro composed of soldiers.  Athens, Greece, July S.���The agitation  regarding the currant monopoly is daily  gi-OAving more serious in western Pelipon-  esus. The peasants iu thc neighborhood  of Pyrgos are practically in revolt. They  have 'destroyed the railway at several  points, because they were prevented by  troops from seizing the trains on'which,  they wished to go to Athens in order to  represent their views to the king in favor  of granting a monopoly. Many of the ad-  minstratiors at Pygros are armed and they  keep up "a continuous fusilado and are parading in the town shouting, " The Monopoly of Death," thereby voicing their  belief that the granting of the monopoly  is necessary to enable the' currant grow-  ers to live.  Victoria, July 8.���Friends of colonel  Prior, when shown the statement' telegraphed' from Vancom'cr yesterday, intimating that he Avould not be a candidate for re-election in the coming provincial election, say that he may not be a  candidate for the provincial legislature,  but that he is likely to again make the  race for election to thc house of commons.

Although  I undenvent considerable hardship for the  ton days, the treatment received on the  Avhole AA-as not bad. During the last  every kindness was shoAvn me. The  tribesmen did not make pecuniary demands.. I was captured merely ns a  means of obtaining tho release of rebel  prisoners. The tact and energy of the  British minister effected my release."  London, July G.���The Shanghai correspondent of the Times says the bankers'  commission has fixed the rate of exchange  for the half-yearly payment of indemnity  due June 80th at 54 cents, involving a  total loss to the Chinese government of  over $200,000.

Rome, July 8.���Physicians in attendance upon pope Leo at a quarter to 10  this morning posted tho following bulletin :  -'The night passed tranquilly enough  although tlie pope had no real rest or  sleep. The pulse Avas frequent and regular. Breathing was not free as last night.  Tlie condition of the pope does not permit  of long examination, but it seems the  pneumonia tends to solvo itself and the  pleuric liquid is not regatheriug. How-  ever, the general coudition of the patient  is not, tranqnilizing because of the state  of depression Avhich at intervals increases."  The only nourishment pope Leo uoav  seems to prefer is the yolk of an egg  mixed with uiarsala. Seeing Dr. Mazzoni  shortly after he Avoke, the pontiff said,  "This is the first time since the beginning  of-my illness that I have had some really  peaceful sleep." Dr. Mazzoni replied,  "It is the effect of the operation." The  .pope then observed, "There is one thing  your skill cannot accomplish���diminish  my ninety-four years."  The most important thing uoav recommended by Dr. Mazzoni is - nourishment  for the patient saying, "Plants need water  Avhen dry.'' The pope on aAvakening during the early hours of the morning did  not speak. He Avas someAA'hat irritable,  and it seemed as though the blankets and  other bedclothes were too heaAry, so he  kicked them off, at the imminent risk of  taking a fresh cold, which Avould be absolutely fatal.  9:40 a. m.���As a consequence of the operation performed yesterday, the cynaosis  of the last finger joints has disappeared,  proving that it AA'as caused by vitiated circulation, due to the pressure of the pleura  on the lungs.

CONSERVATIVE CONVENTIONS;  At a meeting of the executive of the Provincial  Conservative Association, held at Vancouver, the  province was divided into five divisions for organization purposes. The Kootenay-Boundary  division is made up of the .following provincial  election districts: Kevclstoke, Columbia, Fernie,  Cranbrook, Ymir, Kaslo, Slocan, Grand Forks,  Greenwood, the City of Eossland and the Cfty of  Nelson. At the same meeting the following resolutions were adopted:  1. That conventions for nominating candidates  for members of the legislative assembly be made  up of delegates chosen as follows:  (a) In city electoral districts, ono delegate for  every fifty and fraction^of lifty votes polled at  the provincial election held in 1900, and If-the  city is dh'ided into wards, the proportion of delegates for each ward shall he based on the vote  polled in each ward at;t.he; last municipal election.

The election of delegates shall be at public  meetings, held at a designated central-place In  each polling division, or in each ward In city  electoral districts, if :he city is divided into  wards.

He is cultivating the labor vote; nursing it  even as if it was a fruit of his first political love. Yesterday he  approached Thomas Powell, who is a bricklayer and who has  alwa3*-s voted Liberal, and asked him for his support, first on  part}- grounds, then because of his (Taylor) having secured so  many promises of support from the workingmen of Nelson.  Mr. Powell has taken part in several elections in Nelson, both  provincial and municipal, and has very pronounced views pn  questions in which the public are interested. Replying to candidate Taylor's prayer for support, he said he intended to support and vote for John Houston, who, in his opinion, had been a  very good friend of workingmen, not only in Nelson, but in  j Kootenay.  The reply was not such as candidate Ta}dor expected, and  being a lawyer skilled in debate, he commenced a debate with  Mr. Powell, who also has a gift of putting his political views in  words. Candidate Taylor opened by sa3'ing the workingmen  of Nelson had changed their views in regard to Houston; that  they did'not believe in him as they did in 1900.  "What has John Houston done since 1900 to workingnien that  they should go back on him?" asked Powell. "Did he help  throw down union men on the postoffice building? or has he  advocated a reduction of wages "any where in Kootena}*'? Some  of the men who are shouting for you, Taylor, got $5 a day from  Houston when he built the Houston block, and Avhat did they  get from the postoffice building contractors, who' are such good  Liberals?"        . .  "Well, Mr. Powell," replied candidate Taj-lor, "men like Parr  and Burns and others have no use for Houston now.    What has J  made them change?"  "Parr and Burns, and men like them," said Powell, "went to  the Kamloops convention as Labor part}' men; now the}' are  boosting for the Liberal party. If they were good Labor party  men a year ago, what kind of Liberals are they now? They are  as changeable as the winds! No, Mr. Taylor, I do not want to  be classed along with Parr and Burns, and men like them, and I  believe I am as good a. workiugmau as either of them. I will  vote for John Houston, and I will come back from Edmonton,  where I am going for work, to do it.   Good day, Mr. Taylor."  The debate was rather heated at times and candidate Taylor  was not interviewing skilled workingmen today.  Registration of A*otes is very slow in Slocan riding, tlio total on '.'.Saturday being  185, and most of tlieni from Slocan' City.  It is likely R. A. BradsliaAV of Slocan Cit_*  Avill he the Liberal candidate, although  his nomination has not yet heen formally  made. W. T. Shatford and "William  Hunter are spoken of as available timber  for the Conservatives. The Labor men  Avill also have a candidate, and have only  been Avaiting for the initiative to be taken  in sonic tho other riding, Avhich has been  done in the Grand Forks riding. There  the 'Labor-Socialists have nominated "as  their candidate, John Riordan, secretary  of (ho Phoenix Miners' Union.  Matters political arc moving along  sIoavIj- in Fernie riding, according to the  Morrissey Mines Despatch, none of the  parties having taken any" decisive action  tOAvards selecting a candidate. It is the  general opinion that the Labor party and  Socialists Avill have much difficulty in  uniting ou a man, and even if they could  unite on one it would be still more difficult to find one Avho is both capable and  Avilling to represent both elements. The  Conservatives have more men than one in  sight, but no doubt the party Avill unanimously support the choice of the convention. The Liberals at the present time  appear to be like a lot of sheep Avithout a  shepherd. There are seA'eral would-be  candidates, but none, Avith the exception of  E. C. Smith, appears to have anv strong  folloAving. Some doubts exist, however,  as to his AA'illinguess to seek re-election.^  John Riordan, the nominee of the So- -  cialist's party in Grand Forks riding, has  been a resident of Phoenix for four years,'  aud has been the secretary of Phoenix-'  Miners' Union since its organization.   He �����-  has been a member of the city council for   ~  tAvo tenns, and uoav holds that position.  Mr. Riordan, says the Phoenix Pioneer,"' "^  has the, respect aud confidence of all* who i  knoAv hhn, and is the best man the Socia-'��-,  lists could have put up. a  At the ConserA-ative convention in the '  Cranbrook riding there aatII be 17 dele- *  gates entitled to seats. The number of*. ,,-.  delegates is based on the vote of the dif-'(,  fereut tOAvns at the last election". .Each*"  town is entitled to one delegate for * every '/  50 votes or fraction thereof. Fort Steele, '\  Avill have 4 delegates, Moyie 8, Cranbrook *"  5, "Wardner 1, Wasa I, Tracy Creek 1, and'  Kimberley 2.  The Liberals are distributing broadcast  throughout Kootenay a small folder con-  taiuing James Dunsmuir's let-er'bri the' i"  admission of Chinese and comments there-��� -*,  on by The Daily NeAvs of Nelson."
