 [fot ���������������/.��.<  .;u tftfa***?  el#ati  THE TRIBUNE IS THE OLDEST NEWSPAPER  PRINTED IN THE  KOOTENAYS  Saturday, August 8, 1903  XE__ON* IS THE TRADE CENTER OF SOUTH-  EASTERN*  BRITISH  COLUMBIA  GIVE THE  COLUMBIA SMELTERS FAIR  PLAY, FOR WITHOUT THEM THERE CAN BE NO PROSPERITY  The practical value of the $15 bounty on lead ore is yet to be  proved. In the opinion of The Tribune, its greatest practical  vahre to the country will result from smelting the ore in British  Columbia. While it is true, smelters cannot be operated without ore, and the ore supply depends entirely ou the mine  owners, yet the general welfare of the country should not be  lost sight of, and this will be.lost sight of if only the good of  the silver-lead mine owners is considered. For every man that  could be emplo3^ed in a silver-lead mine another could be employed in dry-ore mines or in iron-rock aud lime-rock mines and  quarries, were the silver-lead ores mined in British Columbia  smelted iu Britisli Columbia. If these ores are to be smelted  outside the province, our d^-ore mines aud iron-ore mines and  lime-rock quarries will remain uuworked.  ...The silver-lead mine-owners, or some of them, contend that  they should not be placed at the mercy of the British Columbia  smelters, for if the}' are the smelters will take the big end of the  $15.bonus hy increasing their freight and treatment charges.  Such a contention appears rather far-fetched. The owners of.  smelters in British Columbia are as fairly entitled to make a  profit on their invested capital as are the mine-owners, and none  of the smelters have been declaring regular dividends from the  profits of their operations. But apart from the right to make a  profit on their investments, why-, should a smelter in British  Columbia, be treated in a way different from a pork-packing  house in Toronto or a fruit cannery in Hamilton.. The products  of the Ontario farmer, such as fruit and hogs, are not canned  or packed in New York state, aud there has been no outcjy  raised by the Ontario farmers because of being compelled to  sell their.products'to Canadian manufacturers. If one portion  of Canada is prospering through the working of its general  laws, why should not British Columbia be equally prosperous  under the same laws?  British Columbia needs building up, and the way to build it.  up is to manufacture its raw materials and products in British  Columbia. The smelters in British Columbia are doing their  share in the upbuilding, and their operation should be encouraged, not discouraged. What would the town of Trail be  were the Trail smelter to be closed down permanently? It  would be deserted within a month'." What would-Trail be were  its smelter (in which nearly a million dollars of Canadian money  has been invested) operated at its full capacity? There would  =n oUbe=a=vacan tJbu i ldi n af____i .n___the__J:o_v_n .____Whai__^^uJdJIj:ajJ_be  It has been charged that trade unions  have uot bettered the condition of the  workers, yet statistics show that wages  have been doubled in tho pasi fifty years,  with the hours of labor considerably reduced, and the cost of living only advanced 6 per cent. During this period  working conditions in factories and workshops have been vastly improved, education lias boon made cheaper���in some instances free���and parliaments have been  compelled' to pass legislation protecting  workmen in many ways. All of which,  and more besides, has been accomplished  by trades unions. Therefore the statement that the workers are no better off  by reason of trades unions is not in accordance with facts. It is not claimed  that trade unionism is a cure-all for the  thousand and one social evils, but it is  claimed and has been proven, that trade  unions lighten and brighten the homes of  thoso who toil for a livelihood.  the churches are found many earnest sympathizers with the Salvation Army, so in  the trade unions are found many earnest  sympathizers with'Socialisni.  Labor unions at 'Charlotte, North Carolina, have originated an educational plan  worthy of imitation. The typographical  union is educating? a girl taken from one  of tlie cotton miUs;there. ' It has sent her  to school, supported her, and appropriates  about ."52-IO a year for her benefit. Other  labor organizations in Charlotte have  adopted a plan similar to that formulated  by the typographical union. The street  car men, the Federal Labor Union, and  the bartenders all send children to school.  is comprised of persons skilled in a handicraft requiring an apprenticeship. A labor union is comprised of persons not necessarily skilled in any craft, or composed  of skilled and unskilled workers, in latter  clays sometimes called an industrial  union. ���   -  The Nelson Typographical Union at its  last meeting declined to endorse a proposition from the Ottawa Typographical  Union, insisting on a vice-president of  the Intel-national Typographical Union  being a resident of Canada.  The trades and labor movement iu Victoria is marking time. Under present  conditions it is not likely to advance in  the near future at any rate. Three years  ago organized labor could muster 200 men  in Victoria. 'Today there are 2000 and  more trades and labor unionists in the  city. The work of organization during  tlie several years past was conducted  along trade autonomy lines. In other  words, all unions organized by the organizing committee of the Trades and Labor  Council have been chartered by the international of their craft, or by the Dominion Trades ..Congress wheu an international of a (particular craft or calling did  hot exist. The. growth of unionism has  been phenomenal for an old conservative  city like Victoria. All at once a halt is  called, and, as stated, the trades and labor  movement is marking time.  ���Socialisnia^th^Salxatioiv.Army"*^-tb-e:  Labor movement, and sooner or later will  take its place as such. Meanwhile the  advocates of agrarianism will cause more  or less friction in labor unions in their aggressive crusade to convert1 all organized  workers to their faith. As the Salvation  Army finds its field of labor outside the  churches, so will Socialists find then* field  of labor outside the trades unions.   As iu  At a recent conference of delegates from  the New Zealand trades aud labor councils,  resolutions were passed iii favor of an increase in the laud if ax and a decrease iu  customs duties on; the necessaries of life,  the establishment of government boot-  maldug, tailoring and clothing, aud saddlery and harness factories, public ownership of coasting steamers and other means  of,transit, fire insurance, and amendment  of the,'Industrial Conciliation and Arbitration Act. '  In an open letter to the membership of  the International Barbers' Union. Secretary W. E. Klapotzky says he is compelled to retire owing to broken health,  brought ou by working for 12 years from  12 to 15 hours a dayi When Klapetzky  becauie secretary there were 421 members  in the organization, carrying a debt-of  $11,000. Today the order has 22,000 members and a surplusyof $71,000.  John Mitchell has refused an offer of  ��50,000 for 100 lectures of one hour each,  and travelling expenses. The important  feature of his refusal..is that it came at  once, without asking time to consider the  offer. If anybody doubted .that Mitchell  ���has- coiicentrated^l&HmSelf ^to"~ the---mine"  workers' cause, that' doubt is how dispelled.  A lodge of the Brotherhood of Loco-  tive Firemen has been organized at Nelson.  There is a difference between a trades  union and a labor union.   A trades union  School teachers of Santa Clara county,  California have organized a union, with  jurisdiction over all schools outside of the  city of San Jose, where a similar union  already exists.   Salem, Massachusetts, has 2000 employees, at wages of ��800,000, making $i5,000,-  000 in shoes a year; 1000 workmen at  wages'of $500,000 a year, making $8,500,-  000 of, leather. .  Last year the Order of Railroad Telegraphers secured 20 new and revised  schedules that brought.more than $1,500,-  000 increase in wages to the men benefited.   , _______  ��� John Mitchell has been sued by a New  York' lawyer for $200,000. The latter  claims that he worked out the plan of  settlement of the anthracite strike.  The Railroad Telegraph ers' Union report shows that the organization increased  from _0,!J39. to 25,284 members in the year  ending AprnJ.0.  ��� The executive council of the American  Federation of Labor has sent out a strong  appeal to all organizations to stand by  any and every contract entered into.  - wThe cheapest.-niunioipal tenement-*; aro  those owned by Dublin, where two rooms  can be rented for*2s a week.  It is said that Japan has a Federation of  Labor with almost '$00,000 members.  In labor difficulties the public is thc  final arbiter.  cA Political Lacrosse Game Results  In a Victory for Houston's Team  were the Le Roi smelter at Northport closed and the ore from  the Le Roi mine diverted to the Trail smelter? The population of the town would be doubled.  Just as much consideration should be given to the owners of  the smelters in British Columbia as is given the owners of the  silver-lead mines. If the smelters are closed down, the capital  invested is lost, and in addition the people who own real estate  and other property in the smelter towns are ruined.  The smelter at Trail, like the smelter at Nelson, is operated  as a customs  smelter.       It   is  not operated  on   ore   from   its  INDEPENDENT LABOR TARTY MEET  Tlie public meeting called in the interest  of the Independent Labor Party wa.s held  in Miners' Union hall last night. About  fifty people wore in attendance, bnt only  those who signed the platform of the  party were allowed to vote or take part  in the discussions. John H. Matheson,  president of the party in Nelsou, was in  in the chair, and Charles A.' Mackay was  secretary. William Ebbs was one of the  speakers. He said that Labor owed uo  more to the Liberal Party than it did to  to the Conservative Ptirty, and that the one  was no more entitled to eudorsation the  than the other. Charles A. Mackay, the  secretary spoke in favor of endorsing  either one or the other of the candidates  ���Sidney Stockton Taylor or John Houston���and was strongly opposed to bringing out an Independent Labor Party candidate. Thomas H. Rankin was a party  man and wanted the party to nominate a  candidate, and eveiy vote that was taken  showed that Mr. Mr. Rankin voiced the  views of the majority. Mr. Rankin's contentious were also backed up by Frank  Phillips. The speeches were well delivered and the chairman kept the meeting  well under control. Judging from expressions of opinion heard on the streets  today, t-he meeting did not do what it was  expected to do by candidate Taylor aud  his campaign committee.  The registration in Ymir riding will be  near J000, as 055 names were on the list  at noon yesterday, apportioned to localities as follows:  Nelson anil X.lsim Mines   Trail   Ymlr nnd Ymlr Mines   Creston   Krio und Mines   Sulnio   Kire Valley   Kossliind  mines   Sirdar   Waneta   (JustleKur   Sloe-tin Junction   Willow l'oinl.iinil Kokanee   1'roetei- ami Halfour   Kitchener   Kuskonook     Sheep ('reek (I'altcrson)   Hall Siding   Delegates from the several districts of  tbe Chilliwack riding met iu convention  at Upper Sumas on Monday to choose a  candidate to support tlio Conservative  party. The names before the convention  were Atkinson, Cawley, and Hill-Tout,  aud J. L. Atkinson of Snnias, receiving a  majority of one vote over Cawley, was declared the caudiditte.  "Bob" Coleman is back from a trip to  the Boundary, where he went to have a  day or two's outing. He reports politics  the one question that is interesting the  people of" Grand Forks.  The political lacrosse game, for the benefit of the public library, was played this  afternoon, and John Houston's team won  over Sidney Stockton Taylor's by a score  of 7 to 0. The players wero not lined up  as originally selected, and Joe Thompson,  =oue-of=Houstoi-is--starL_pla_*_i-s,^had_to_go.  over to tlie Taylor team in order to oven  the teams up. With Joe in center and  Paul Greyorbeihl in goal, Taylor's team  was the stronger, and for tho first three-  quarters it looked as if that team  would be tlie winners. In the last quarter Houston's team got on their mettle  and kept the ball hovering around tlie  Taylor goal most of the time, shooting four goals to one for their opponents.  When time was called, the "reds" had  downed the "blues," and were cheered by  both tho crowd and their opponents.  Some of the youngsters, like McBeath  and Shnrpe and Wallace, played like seniors. Dannie McNicholl and Dudley  Blackwood and Arthur Perrier, on the  one side, nnd .Toe Thompson and Taylor  and Archibald and Fox on the other,  played  good lacrosse.  Mayor Rose faced tho ball and R. S.  Lennie wns referee, with Fred Starkey  and Or. Hall umpires. Mr. Poole wa.s  timekeeper.   The line-up  was a.s below:  as varied as the metallic values in the  ores. The climate is good, and the laws  are inost liberal. There is no end of  wood and water. There are no labor  troubles and none likely to occur. No  mining country ituywhere has as good  ^iransportationJ'aculitieSj.aiKLsuielters^iUte  within easy reach. Kootenay is once  more the el dorado to which prospectors  and speculators and investors are heading.

On Eagle creek, six miles southeast of  Nelson, enough prospecting work has been  done on a number of claims to show that  one of the big mines of Kootenay is in  sight. The ledge has been stripped for  more than half a mile and shafts sunk at  places to depths of SO and'JO feet. Tlie  ore carries gold values only. The discovery of the rich gold-bearing veins ou Poplar creek, Trout Lake district, and theun-  covering of immense ledges of gold-bearing ore near Nelson, means that the tide of  mining prosperity is turning and will  soon be running strong towards Kootenay. No country presents so many advantages. The mining districts are varied,  When "Alf" Parr, who is posturing for  the Liberal nomination in Ymir riding,  was secretary of the Ymir Miners' Union  every man was a "scab" who worked for  less than the union's scale of wages. He  insisted that all laborers employed by the  government on road aiid trail work lie  paid the union settle, *?���! a day. Last summer he worked as n laborer for the government ou a public road and was paid  $') a day. This siiiinner lie worked as a  laborer in a sawmill at Ymir and wns paid  "$���2.50 ..a day. Yet. strange to say, the  scale of wages of the Ymir Miners' Union  is still!?:{ a day for laborers. AVns Parr  "scabbing it" when he was working in  the sawmill for $-2.Ml a day? But probably Parr was nn Independent Labor  Party man when lie was working for the  government and n Liberal when he was  working at the sawmill.  It is now au almost established fact that  the blowing up of the Bunker Hill nnd  Sullivan concentrator near Wardner, Idaho, in 189!), wa.s planned by designing  mine-owners and carried out by traitors  who held official positions in the miners'  unions. It is to be hoped that British  Columbia has no such scoundrels aniong  either miuo-owm-is or miners' union officials. The relations between union wage-  earners and fair-minded employers tire  too often disturbed by designing men,  and these desigiiiiii: men aro not always  "labor agitators.'*  tinct understanding that then- grievances  will be considered and concessions granted. General Arsenieff received instructions July 30th from St. Petersburg enjoining him to refrain from active interference with thc men, provided thoy  maintained order aud obeyed the police.  In the event that tho mob became recalei-  "ti*aiitrheiwas'-dii,eeted="to"havoiithei'troops-  fire blank cartridges, and then, if necessary three rounds of ball cartridges. The  correspondent says the strikers made no  serious attempt to resist the police, and  that general Arsenieff's action in the alleged riots is freely condemned as unwarrantably precipitate. He says: "This  collision caused a feeling of pain and indignation over the ruthless methods of  Russia's strong man, Von Plehve, to  whose instructions it was due."  London, August 7.���Tho Times this  morning prints it despatch from Kieff,  Russia, "dated Auj-ust 1st, which says that-  general ArsenietV. governor of the district  of Odessa, together with a committee of  influential citizens, have induced the  tramway strikers, m resume on the dis-  Lo.vdox, August 7.���The Standard's  Odessa correspondent, under date of August Jind, says that all the trades have  now resumed work and thnt. the strike is  practically ended; bnt that the city will  remain under martini law for at least another ten days. Tlio strikers do not get  all limy demanded, but in most cases wore  met with fair spirited compromises on tin-  part of employers. According to the correspondent, flit! ltK-iil Odessa papers on the  day the despatch was sent announced that  the governor had issued a statement- to  the effect that he hud summarily convicted seventy-one persons and had sentenced them to three months' imprisonment for disturbing public, order. The  names giveii iiijitide many .Tews and a  few foreigners. The strike ended -just in  inn. o avert so -,ins food riots, its the  high price for provisions had led to popular threats to storm the bakeries and Hour  mills. There have been a few fatalities,  but no serious disorders. It is stated that  while the strikers were trying to prevent  it train starting ou Saturday night, four  of the strike leaders were run over and  killed.   Charlie Olson of Ainsworth was in Nelson today, and, ns usual, had only good  words to say of the oldest mining camp  camp on Kootenay lake. In conversation  with The Tribune long-hand journalist, ln-  said : "Why the miiiesat Ainsworth never  looked better. There is the Highland  mine, that I staked on August 17th, 18K-I,  nineteen years ago, is ready to ship 200  tons of concentrates a month ; yet 1 hold  that mine for years and could get no one  to look at it. Then- nre other good properties scattered between Coffee and Cedar  creeks, and some day they will pass into  the hands of men who will work them to  advantage."  H  own mines.     It is one of the most complete plants in America.  It not only smelts ores, but refines the product of the smelter; -  and if given a little encouragement, every pound of lead used in  Canada would be   lead  mined, smelted, refined, and  manufac--".  tured in Canada.  Turner, Beeton & -.Company, Limited, of Victoria, is giving  the people of that city and of the province an object lesson as  to how-Chinese can- be -"dispensed-, with in a manufacturing in-<  dustry,   the  output  of  whicli is sold in a competitive market.'  Up to about a year ago, 90 per cent of  the overalls and shirts  manufactured in the province were made by Chinese.    Today,.  90 per cent is made by'white labor.    A year ago last June, H.  B. Thomson, who was for a time manager of Turner, Beeton &  Co.'s  branch  house  in  Nelsou, and  who is now manager of  *  Turner, Beeton & Company, Limited, decided to manufacture"  overalls and shirts with white labor.   ,; ' '..-^  .OnJune 2nd, 1902, twelve Wheeler & Wilson  sewing  machines   were  installed, along with other necessary machinery.'.2  Four girl  operators  started to work  on  the^first day-and one^"  more was added on the second.    .The second week nine were at   i  work, and before the end of the month the twelve machines were/  in operation, and eight more had to be  installed in  July. . Inv  November ten more were put in, and in May of this year eight-yj-'l  high-speed machines were added, and today the factory has 43 j;-'^  operators ou the payroll, and these operators are turning oufev,*;*  550  dozen  articles  a  mouth.    All the machine operators are7??l  girls, men and boys being emp^ed in the cutting, buttoning^)?  and   packing  departments.    The  machinery is run by a.-.2j4i��jp  hjorse7po\^er.^electric. motor,  and.the  factory__js^__pomy/^w_4__j|^"^  lighted, and clean. . *   :'.  The  output  of  the   factory is of so high a quality that _.t is .  sold in  the mining-camps of British Columbia and the Yukon -  in competition with  thec output: of ��� the old-established factories  of San Francisco. ���.  -.      ���  Everygarmeutma.de bears two labels. One is the label of-  the Garment Workers Union of America, which can only be"  used by manufacturers who employ union -labor exclusively.  The other label is the company's brand, "Big Horn." Any  article with the "Big Horn" label stitched on it is made in  British Columbia by white union labor, and there are few clothing stores in the province not handling the goods.  By   employing  white  labor,   Turner,   Beeton   & Company,  Limited^forcecL^tke^conipan^ds^stroiigest-Competitorto do like-__j  wise, and it is estimated that white labor has displaced fully 150  Chinese who formerl}' worked on overalls and shirts in Victoria,  factories.  Thc girl operators work eight hours a day, except on Saturdays, when   they   work   four, unless   there are rush orders on  hand.    After  a  short  apprenticeship, they are paid from $1 toy  $1.25 a day find   a   bonus, which runs from $4 to $12 a month,  according to the expertucss of the operator.  British Columbia can stand a few more just such object lessons.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 8, 1903  "No one man has done more to build up  Spokane than D. 0. Corbin.   He started  in the 80s and built a narrow-gauge road  that  diverted  the   trade   of  the  Coeur  d'Alenes to Spokane, and Spokane thrived.  He sold the Coeur d'Alenes road and used  the  proceeds   to build the  Spokane  &  Northern,   a   railway   that   for   years  brought the cream of the business of the  Kootenays to Spokane.   In 1893, he built  the Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway, and  in 1896 completed the Columbia & Red  Mountain  railway  to  Rossland.    Both  these roads helped Spokane and tho state  of "Washington.   Mr. Corbin sold these  railways a few years ago, and invested a  portion of the proceeds in a beet sugar  factory at Waverly, a small town near  Spokane.   That beet sugar factory now  supplies one-fourth of the sugar consumed  in the state of Washington.   Men like D.  C. Corbin build up a country, and it is  noticeable that they always build up the  country in which they live.   British Col-  -tunbia needs men like D. C. Corbin of  Spokane, and if it had a few of them,  politicians would not need.make pilgrimages to Ottawa seeking better terms from  other politicians.   We have the raw material in abundance.   What is wanted is  men who will manufacture tlie raw material into products that will not only  keep money in the province, but bring  money in from tlie outside,   such a policy  could  have but  one result:   Prosperity  to tlie people of British Columbia.  When did The Tribune encourage or  advocate the_giving'of contracts, either  "fOTbuildings or for anything else, to outside contractors? This question should  be answered by W. G. Gillett, contractor,  and John Burns, carpenter, both of whom  are on candidate Sidney Stockton Taylor's campaign committee. These two  men imagine they carry tlio Labor vote in  their pockets, nnd can hand it over to candidate Taylor at will.  While tlie yacht designers and ship  builders of Great Britain have been uniformly unsuccessful in building a era ft  that could "lift" America's Cup from the  Yankees, the American yacht designers  and boat builders of tins states bordering  on the great lakes have been as uniformly  unsuccessful in winning a victory from  the designere and boat builders of Canada  in the many yacht races that have taken  place on the lakes. If sir Thomas Lipton  and Shamrock III do'not "lift" America's  Cup this year, why not "pass the buck"  to the Canadians. Surely there tire Canadians who would chip in money enough  to build and maintain a yacht, and tlie  designers aud boat builders and sailors  who make winning racers and sail them  on the lakes could be depended on to-do  the rest.  Candidate Taylor aud his campaign  managers now know that their efforts to  || get an indorsement for Taylor from the  union labor organizations, represented in  the Nelson Trades aud Labor Council,  C have been in vain. The Nelson Trades  and Labor Council represents union labor  [i in Nelson just as the Nelson Board of  Trade represents the commercial interests  of Nelson. The Nelson Board of Trade,  made up as it is of men who affiliate with  both the Conservative and Liberal parties,  H would not make an attempt to force its  members to vote for any one candidate,  for it would be against common sense. So  ���with the Nelson Trades and Labor Coun  cil. Its members affiliate with different  political parties, and each reserves to  himself the l-ight to vote according to his  political convictions. Taylor nnd his  campaign committee, in planning for  such an indorsement, show how ignorant tliey are of the principles that  govern union labor organizations.  What is the bond of affinity or affection  or interest between the Liberal and the  Independent Labor parties, that they  should look on the Conservatives as their  " common enemy?" Do the Liberals pay  better wages than the Conservatives when  they employ labor? When in control of  legislative bodies, do the Liberals pass  more labor legislation than the Conservatives do when they are in control? Is not  "common enemy" a claptrap phrase used  by laborers of the "Alf" Parr stripe, who  are Liberals because they wero born  that way ?   According to "Alf" Parr, the Conservatives are the "common enemy" of the  Liberals and Independent Laborites. Yet,  a few years ago, when the Miner's Unions  were fighting for what they believed to be  their rights, the only newspaper that  stood by them was a Conservative .newspaper, edited by a Conservative, and  the government that refused to Q aid  them by enforcing the laws of the land  was one made up entirely of Liberals.  Who was the "common enemy then?"  Men like Parr are " common blatherskites."   Candidate Taylor's campaign committee put up a nice little "job" to get Taylor endorsed by the labor unions and the  Independent Labor Party. The trouble  with the jobbers is that they are not only  new at the business, but are governed by  spite more than by principle. There are  many Independent Labor Party men in  Nelson who, on principle, would vote for  an Independent Labor Party candidate,  were one to be nominated, but thoy will  not vote for Sidney Stockton Taylor, the  Liberal candidate, merely because two or  three of his committeemen axo members of  labor unions. The man who is likely to  receive the Conservative nomination has  been a member of the typographical  union for over a third of a century, and  still works at his trade six days a week.  He may not be the same kind of n.union  limTnT_rthose~w]Ib~hang out at candidate  Taylor's committee rooms, but ho is of  the kind who believe that labor unions, as  organizations, should keep out of politics.  The Liberal-Conservative Association of  Nolson, through its executive officers, has  rented and furnished the corner store iu  the Scott building at tho southeast corner  of Baker and Josephine streets. The nominating conventions of both Nelson City  and Ymir ridings will be held in this  room on the date fixed by the parly's provincial executive���Saturday, August l/ith.  Tlie party in these two ridings is prepared to win both, and doitou the square.  The party has not entered into any entangling alliances, and tlio wishes of the  majority will prevail. For a dozen years  Nelson has been the political capital of  Southeastern Kootenay, and through it  being such a center, the southeastern portion of the province will be fairly represented in the next legislative assembly. It  takes time to work changes in this province, even when the changes have every  merit. Another change is slowly working, that is, the breaking up of what is  known as Coast Domination. Every government the province has had has been a  Coast government. It is about time the  Upper Country had its innings.   ���  There is said to ce a hitch in tho Liberal-Labor combination in Ymir riding.  In 11)00, "Alf" Parr, who postures us a  representative of Labor, would not abide  by the decision of it convention oi* Labor  men, and since then Labor men look ou  him with suspicion. They now say, if  he wants their support he must come out  as a straight Independent Labor Party  caudidate, leaving an indorsement of the  Liberals to follow. This does not suit  the Liberal leaders in Nelson, who are  playing for the Labor vote for Sidney  Stockton Taylor, lawyer.     They argue  that if Parr runs as an Independent Labor Party candidate in Ymir, the Independent Labor Party will put a candidate in the field in Nelson, nnd if they do  Taylor's goose is cooked, as he is relying  solely on the Labor vote lo pull him  through. The Liberal-Labor combination,  being one in which the Labor men are to  do the voting aud the Liberals are to get  the offices, will go to smash lief on) election day.        The following letter explains itself:  Ymik, B. C, June ���.'*.-���, I(KM.  Dear Sir : Mr. Bnckworth, whom you  have met recently, has just informed me  that you wero one of tlie staunch supporters of our party, and I tako tho liberty  of writing you to say that the members  of our Liberal association here have urged  upon me to accept the nomination for the  Ymir riding. Pursuant to this request, 1  would be pleased to have your support in  this direction. I might say thnt 1 have  held the office of pre.ident of the Ymir  Liberal association for the past two terms  and still hold that office. I have also  held the office of financial secretary of  the Ymir Miners' union for live successive  terms, ending March HI, 11)02, and tit the  same time held the office of .secretary-  treasurer of the district association of  minors'unions iu B. C, which has given  me an extensive acquaintance with the  working classes throughout the Kootenays.  The Ymir Miners' union, numbering  three hundred and fifty members, tendered me the nomination to run as a  straight.labor candidate, which I promptly  declined", as I would not run against a  Liberal candidate, and I am satisfied that  a three-cornered fight would only bring  success to the common enemy. They  have tendered me their support provided  I received the nomination of the Liberal  ticket as a straight Liberal. You will  plainly sec that this consolidation of  Liberal and labor vote will insure a successful result at the polls. Personally myself I have always been a Liberal, and  would refer you to the Hon. Joseph M-u--  tin, Smith Curtis, or locally to Mr. S. S.  Taylor, Dr. Hall or any of the prominent  local Liberals, and I heartily endorse the  platform which was issued by our party.  I am an advocate of the public ownership  of public services and utilities, and believe that the public lands should be reserved for actual settlers and that a system of dyking should be conducted by the  government and such lands sold to settlers at the cost of dyking. I am bitterly  opposed to any further laud grants to  railroads, and favor the construction of  roads and trails to further the agricultural and mining interests of theprovince.  The conciliation of labor disputes is one  of the most important questions absorbing om* attention, and I believe all these  subjects should be settled definitely, and  I hope that when the Liberal party takes  office that they they will make a clean  record, that will insure them along lease  of office. I hope to meet you soon and  become acquainted with you personally,  and also with our other Liberal friends.  Hoping to hear froni you, I am, yours  truly, Alfred Parr.  Attacked by. Grizzly Bear.  Ferguson Eagle, 31st: About the middle  of the afternoon of Tuesday last George  H. Bayne and J. A. Kennedy had  an experience that does not often fall to  the lot of man, and one from which both  men may consider themselves fortunate  in having escaped alive, and yet one that  Mr. Bayne may never recover from.  An Eagle reporter met Mr. Kennedy  yesterday and got the following particulars :  About a week ago Mr. Bayne came in  from Rossland accompanied by Mr. Kennedy, and went directly to Hall creek,  camping at the Jewel cabin, 16 miles  above Ten-Mile, which is reached by a  very rough mountain trail. Mr. Bayne is  interested iu several properties on Hall  and Haley creeks and he and Mr. Kennedy intended to spend about two months  doing assessment work and examining  different properties iu the vicinity. Tuesday the two walked to the "Little Tommy," across the big lime dyke and over  -three-miles-distaufc-^Tliey^had^finished"  their examination and were returning to  camp, walking through thick undergrowth, when they heard an animal  growling and snorting, presumably a beiu-  warning her cubs to seek shelter from  possible danger. Mr. Kennedy continued  as follows.  "We stepped upon a largo fallen tree,  where there was u little opening in the  undergrowth. We turned, and looking  behind, saw a large silver-tip bear jump  on tho log some 10 or Jo feet from us. We  both jumped to escape down the hill, but  Bityne's loot caught a bough and he fell  by the side of tho log. I got about 40  feet away when I knew the bear had attacked Bayne. AVe had no weapons of  any kind and we had very little time to  have used them. The bear having passed  on, I returned to Bayne at once. He was  quite conscious, but bleeding profusely,  and said when he fell the bear jumped on  him and bit his hand, face, and head, and  also clawed him, but though perfectly conscious he lay without flinching aud the  bear passed on after lingering but a few  seconds and evidently feeling assured that  no harm could' be suffered by the cubs  from that source, and thinking no doubt  of fetching the cubs to partake of it meal.  "I returned to my partner," said Kennedy, "and found him badly lacerated  and I was afraid of him bleeding to death.  I bound up thc wounds as well as I could,  and he having expressed a desire for water, we walked to tho creek J500 feet below. I asked Bayne to wait here until I  got a horse to convey him to camp, but  he insisted on walking with mc stud Ave  reached camp about 7 p. m., and were rejoiced to find captain Davey and James  Curry had arrived during our absence.  We again bound up the wounds and tit 5  the next morning we mounted horses aud  rode through to Ferguson without stopping find arrived at 2 :30 p.m."  Kennedy said Bayne's fortitude and  splendid nerve were remarkable, and although lie must have suffered intense agony during the 9|-_ hours ride, ho did not  refer to his wounds except to speak of his  lacerated hand.  Mr. Bayne arrived at the Lardeau Miners' Union hospital at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, and under chloroform it was found  that tlie left side of the forehead and face  are torn away, laying bare facial muscles  and bone; left eyebrow and e_*elid lacer  ated and torn; left ear torn to pieces;  scalp from forehead to neck literally torn  and chewed to shreds, one large lacera-  ation extending from left eye to left ear  and around back of head to near right ear.  Mr. Bayne remember.-' distinctly that this  latter wound was caused by a blow from  the bear's paw. The right hand is badly  chewed and bruised. There is no signs of  fracture of base of skull, although slight  symptoms of internal hemorrhage nro  present. Mr, Bayne is very weak from  shock, loss of blood, ami lung journey after the accident.  Mr. Bayne is a well-known and well-to-  do mining man. He is one of the principal owners in the Honiestnko of Rossland,  as well as being president of tho company.  His relatives live in Halifax, to whom pai--  ticulars of the accident have been wired.  Nelson's Financial Condition.  Tlio city council met last night  and spent the session in considering  the city's financial condition. If all the  arrears of taxes anil rates aro collected  anil the estimated expenditures not exceeded, the city treasurer will have  $3004.18 to the good on December 31st,  1903. But. as the arrears of taxes, etc.,  ore estimated at $21,8(M.98, it is safe to  say that the city's overdraft at the bank  on December 31st, 1903, will be fully as  much, if not more, than the amount of  arrears. The council also fixed the rate  of taxation for the year at the rate of 21  mills on land and 2 mills on 50 per cent of  the assessed value of improvements. The  estimates of revenue and expenditure  submitted to the council are as follows:  ASSESSED  VAUTE.  Lands   Improvements  East Ward ?

Parker, as presented  at the recent annual general meeting of  shareholders: Whilst uot finding any  large deposits, thc work done during tho  year in conjunction with previous work  lias fully demonstrated the fact that tlie  porphyry contacts possess a most important bearing on the ore deposits, and judging from the length of the principal  ore shoots, and the smaller ones, which in  each case were lying iu contact with the  porphyry dyke, some very close relation  between the two must exist. Drill  holes were therefore placed in such a position as to prove that these dykes probably extended to the deep, and a stringer  of ore was also followed down, at the  north end of the No. 1 ore bod3*, by a  shaft.  The shaft which is known as the east  incline shaft, is 200 feet deep, and drifts  aud crosscuts havo been driven with tho  result that stringers of ore have been encountered, which, while low grade, averaging 8 to 10 ounces silver and 28 to SS  per cent lead, show that there is a possibility of striking something better later  on. The shaft will be sunk deeper a.s soon  as the necessary buckets, which have been  ordered, have arrived.  The north incline has been driven 250  feet and has followed the ore channel all  this distance and good stringers of ore  have been met intermittently all the way  down, which have assayed as high as 90  ounces silver, and 70 per cent load.  The total amount of development work  done during the year amounts to 12,100  feet of drifting, crosscutting, sinking,  raising and diamond drilling.  During the year 15426 tons of ore have  been shipped the assay value of whicli averages 29.5 ounces silver and 'JO.2 percent  lead.  In conclusion tho manager states that  the conditions are more encouraging than  at this time last year and that he has cer-  Alberta Railroad War.  Blairmore Times, 1st: This week has  seen the climax reached in the dispute between Poupore <te McVeigh, the contractors who lirst built tho Cirassy Mountain  railroad, and the purchasers of the road,  the Gfold Creek Collieries. On Monday  the contractors who wore building the  piece of road to connect with the C.P.R.  were about ready to connect with the  main line at the top of tho hill, drivo the  golden spike, and throw the road open for  traffic to the mine. Just at this juncture,  however, a small but determined band of  men took possession of the first big cut at  the top of the hill, tore up a few sections  of rails, proceeded to pitch camp, and soon  the canvas walls of Port Ciunmiugs wero  flapping in tho Prank breeze, and Briton  and Gaul were again about to struggle for  supremacy in the golden west.  Fortunately, however, this dispute had  already been referred to the courts, and  Poupore & McVeigh had secured an injunction against the road being used until  thc matter was settled, so they felt secure in making an armed resistance  against the passing of trains over it. Mr.  Fleutot, manager of the coal mines,  thought otherwise, and threatened to force  a passage through and run his trains. He  found it impossible, however, to secure  the necessary laborers, who apparently  with equal respect for the law and the determined men in possession refused to  proceed with the work.  Tuesday a detachment of mounted police arrived, commanded by inspector Davidson of Pincher Creek and captain"  Wickman of McLeod. They at once proceeded to the scene of threatened hostilities. After going into the matter carefully thoy decided that the contractors  were more or less within their rights, and  informed Mr. Fleutot that the orders of  the court must be obeyed.  Meanwhile the lawyers for both parties  in the dispute were more than busy, and  several times an agreement was almost  reached. On Thursday, however, all negotiations were broken off, and the officials of the railway were cited to appeal- before court at Calgary. Port Cummings  still stands, while the proud motto,  "What we havo we hold," still floats  aloft. , ���"���"������  Meanwhile the end of the railway is at  a standstill, and the sidetracks at Frank  stand crowded with care loaded with much  needed material for the mine and coke  ovens, which cannot be moved until this  injunction is dissolved.  Sir Hector Madonald's Will.  The inventory of tho personal estate of  sir Hector Macdonald, brigader-geueral,  and the relative deeds have been registered at Edinburgh. The total moveable  estate amounted to ��4402, and the duty  paid amounted to ��121. The estate was  principally made up of foreign bank  shares and bonds, and included a balance  at his bankers of ��S75. The will was.  written in Sir Hector's own hand, and  was dated December 27, JS99. He appointed Mr. Turner, Wigan Junction  Collierp, to be the guardian of his son  Hector. Mr. Turner, however, predeceased sir Hector. After payment of nil  his just debts, sir Hector bequeathed all  he was possessed of to his son Hector.  -Gertaiu"irticles-were"direOted*"td*"o^k'ept~  as heirlooms by his son. Those include a  portrait of her late majesty, presented to  him hy queen Victoria; caskets containing addresses presented to him by various  towns and associations, presentation  swords of honor, his medals and decorations, and the thanks on vellum of both  houses of parliament. His old charger,  Kuowall, he directed to be shot, desiring  that one of the hoofs be mounted and  given to general sir Charles d'Aguilar,  and another mounted and kept as an  heirloom by his son Hector. The remainder of his goods to be sold, witli the following exceptions: Plate, the Mahdi's  banner, selected pictures, chain armor,  stationery racks, swords and spears. The  will was signed at Umballa before proceeding on active service to South A fries-,  December 27, JS90.  Work to be Resumed.  Work is to be resumed on the Alice  mine, three miles from Creston. T. F.  Proctor, the manager of the property, has  had word from John Hampson, who is in  the old country, that he has persuaded  the owners to resume work. A concentrator will be built at the mine to treat  the low-grade ore, which will concentrate  4 to 1. Tho concentrates will carry 20  ounces silver and 70 per cent: lead, and  the clean ore will run even higher in  values. There are over 20,000 tons of ore  blocked out. The Alice is an old location, made away back in the early '90s.  .It has had a great deal of development  work done on it, and would have paid  from the start had the prices of the metals  not dropped to so low a figure. Mr.  Hampson is expected back this month,  and as soon ns he returns tho work will  be commenced.  Thero is no truth in (he report that  four and a half feet of high-grade ore has  been struck in the No. 5 level of the Silver  King mine. The mine is under louse,  and reports of rich strikes, as was printed  in the Nelson Daily News this morning,  might be all right a.s coming from Poplar  Creek, a camp in which all tho strikes  are rich, but coming from a mine like tho  Silver King, tire only misleading. The  ore in No. 5 level of the Silver King instead of being high-grade and worth ��50  a ton is low-grade and worthless than .12.

PREACHING PEACE  Since publisher Deane of the Nelson Daily News has become  a nominated candidate for the legislature, he has become real  peaceful and his daily newspaper is preaching peace and goodwill to the politicians in Nelson who 'are striving to hive all  the voters who are laboring men under nominated-candidate  Sidney Stockton Taylor's wings. Deane and Taylor both profess to belong to the same political party. Deane has credentials to prove that he is of the party, for did not the party pa}'  him $6000 for acting [as secretary of a Chinese commission?  Taylor is not to the party born, for he was a Conservative when  he landed in Kaslo a few years ago; but, no doubt, the party  will take him in. His reward, however, will not be an election  to the British Columbia legislature, with its paltr}* $800 a 3'ear  and mileage, but a judgship at $5000 and traveling expenses.  This will be the balm that will heal the wounds received in his  unsuccessful campaign in Nelson. Candidates Deane and  Taylor both love the working man, but only when they want to  use him for election purposes. That bold, bad man, John  JH{*mston,_bjMng=_aJ  tricks that are played on laboring men by politicians, hence the  sermon in the Nelsou Daily News on peace and harmony. If  laboring men want to know how much the candidates of the  Liberal party realty think of them, all they need do is read  "Alf" Parr's letter, which was printed in The Tribune yesterday. Parr gives the snap away. He is posturing as a candidate for Ymir riding. He claims to be a working man, through  being an office-holder in the Ymir Miners' Union, but does not  want to run as a Labor candidate. Instead, he wants to be  classed as a silk stocking, and run as the candidate of the  Liberal party. If laboring men have good sense they will chuck  the Parrs and Taj'lors, and vote for men who do uot posture as  their friends only once iu four }Tears���that is during election  campaigns.  POPULATION INCREASING  The registered vote is rapidly increasing in nearly every riding in southeastern British Columbia, and the indications now  are that the vote polled this year will at least be 10 per cent  larger than the vote in'1900. This has more than a political  significance, because it means that the population of the eleven  constituencies in southeastern British Columbia is increasing,  not decreasing. A comparison of the registration in the eleven  constituencies in the southeastern portion of the province with  the same number of ridings in any other portion of the province will show that the present redistribution of seats is not an  unfair one to the older portions of the province, as claimed by  the politicians at the Coast. It is possible that the registration  in Nelson and Rossland will not be quite as large as isit will be  in the cities of New Westminster and Nanaimo, but the registration in none of the coast ridings, outside of the cities, will  equal   the   registration   in   our   ridings.     On   Saturday,  The  [Continued on Third Page] The Nelson Tribune  [Continued from Second l'age.]  Tribune printed the registration of the several ridings, and  among others gave the registration of Cranbrook riding at 790.  These figures were telegraphed from Cranbrook. Yesterday  J. F. Armstrong, the collector of voters for the riding, writes  The Tribune from his office at Fort Steele that the registration  for the riding is 903, apportioned as follows : Cranbrook 543,  Fort Steele 128, Moyie 63, Marysville, 53, Wardner 41, Yahk  and Ryan 35, Kimberely and North Star 29, Wasa 11. The  growth of Cranbrook is not dependent on mining. It is a railway and sawmill town. While mining is the chief industry of  Kootenay, yet the fact must not be overlooked that lumbering  is beginning to take an important place in Kootenay's industries.  MAKE IT A SUCCESS  The success of the first exhibition of the Nelson Agricultural  aud Industrial Association will have a far-reaching effect ou the  future of the countiy tributary to Nelson. The impression on  the outside is that Kootenay and the Bouudaiy is only a mining  country, and that there are few opportunities for the farmer and  the gardener to make a living in it. As a matter of fact, there  is room in Kootenay and the Boundaty for hundreds of small  fanners and gardeners. For men who can work intelligently at  these pursuits, no section on the Pacific Coast presents so sure  returns. The certainty of returns is based on a home market.  The men who work in the mines alwa}^ buy the best of every-  thing. They will not purchase "case" eggs when they can get  them "fresh from the rauche." They will not purchase "cold  storage" chickens, when they can get "spring broilers."

Tally Boyce on Politics.. .  Nanaimo Herald: ' 'How's politics!''  asked a Herald man of Tally Boyce,  the genial secretary of the Liberal association, last evening.  Mr. Boyce smiled a knowing smile as  he replied:  "Politics, my boy, just at the present  time is a hard nut to crack. It puzzles  the best of them except, of course, those  who are in the know.  "Now Nanaimo looks like a three-  cornered fight, don't it? Well, don't be  too sure, my boy. The Socialists and  Conservatives' haven't been holding this  little flirtation for nothing. These Tories  say thy're going to bring out a candidate  anyhow. Why don't they tell us who  he will be? Very simple reason, my boy;  they can't do it; simple reason for that  again; because they ain't going to have a  candidate.  "How do I know? There yon are again,  right at the point of commencement. As  I said before, Nanaimo looks like a Chinese puzzle; but there i.s a solution that  will work just like oil.  ^JA__ne^lung_moi*e_I^caiu,tellJI.you.i=_A]L  ner, and Bailey, executive committee. A  nominating convention will bo held as  soon as arrangements can be perfected.  these jay reporters who get special dispatches announcing the next candidate  for Nanaimo are away up a tree. These  dispatches are written right here in Nanaimo and wouldn't deceive a kitten.  "That's one point; another point is tho  Liberals are going to elect their man  right here in Nanaimo. No; I don't  know who he will be; it don't matter.  He'll be elected, that's sure. Also, the  Liberals will probably hold a meeting  next Saturday night to put the finishing  touches on the voters' list and talk matters over generally.  "We're going to have a nice time, all  right. As I said beforo, Nanaimo is a  hard nut to crack, but there's a good, rich  kernel in thnt nut, aud ninybo the result  will surprise you; see?"  And with a wave of the hand the jovial  secretary walked away, leaving the reporter rather dazed to know what was at  the bottom of it all.  Victoria Colonist: "That was a great  note you had iu about Joe Martin, yesterday," a local Liberal remarked to a Colonist reporter yesterday. ' 'It hit close to  the bull's eye. He's keeping us all guessing, is Joe. I'd give something myself to  know what he's really up to. Do you  know, scribe, when the Liberals of British  Columbia turned down Joe Martin, they  literally knocked the brains out of the  party."  "But," protested the reporter, "surely  there is plenty of good brains left iu the  Liberal party yet!"  "TJni���well, yes; but, dash it all, they're  the fried and breaded sort!"  Ymir riding Liberals will hold a nominating convention at Fairview an Monday next. Delegates have been appointed  as follows: Trail 4, Fairview 4, Ymir IS,  Salmo 2, and one each from Patterson,  Castlegar, Silver King mine, Hall Siding,  Arlington mine, Waneta, Prootor-Balfour,  Sirdar, Kitchener, Fern mine, Ymir mine,  Kootenay - Columbia mine, Athabasca-  Venus mine, Second Relief mine, and  Erie���29 in all.

Champion, Bon-  New Denver, Aug. 3.���-The Independent Labor Party convention held here on  Saturday was attended by delegates from  Slocan City, Silverton, Sandon, Three  Forks, Nakusp and-New Denver. The  convention was most harmonious and resulted in the nomination of William  Davidson . of 'Sandon to contest Slocan  riding in the interests of the Independent  Labor Party. The platform adopted reiterates the cardinal principles of the  party, demanding:  ���1. Signed resignation of nominee to be  placed in the hands of convention.  2. Government ownership of railways.  3. Favors retention by the government  of coal and oil lands.  4. Restriction of Chinese.  5. Municipal control pf the liquor traffic.  6. Woman's suffrage.  7. Compulsory education, with free text  books, board, etc.  S. Compulsory exercise of the franchise.  S). Exemption of producer and products  "of producer frohTfaxTttibif:  10. Compulsory arbitration.  11. Adoption of initiative and referendum.  The nominee, William Davidson, is a  miner, and Avas working at the Last  Chance mine when it closed down some  mouths ago. He is highly spoken of by  those who know hhn, and should poll the  strength of his party.  The Liberal-Conservatives of Nelson ore  not likely to pay much heed to the vaporing* of the Rossland Miner. The editor of that newspaper wa.s a resident of  Nelson in 1-97, aud edited the Nelson  Miner during Nelson's first municipal  campaign. Hisvaporings then, as they  will now, disgusted even those who were  politically opposed to the man they were  directed against. Nelson's two daily  newspapers are not interfering in tho affairs of Rossland's politicians, as they believe that the people ofD each riding are  well able to take care of themselves. The  Rossland Miner has no political status in  Rossland, where it is well known, and its  effort to lead public opinion outside of  Rossland is absurd.  Duncan Ross of Greenwood, secretary-  treasurer of the Interior District" Grit  Council, returned last week from his organizing vacation in the Similkameen.  He reports having organized several strong  associations. He lost his geographical location of the country, drifted across the  the line, organized a Liberal association  at Molson, Washington, and as he wa.s  about to bombard Bolster, was called  down by the American oilicers, who told  him they did not want any Clan-na-gael  societies over there.  Slocan riding has two candidates nominated. R. A. Bradshaw of Slocan City,  Liberal, and William Davidson of Sandon, Independent Labor. Thc Conservatives will hold their nominating convention at New Denver on the loth, when it  is likely that William Hunter of Silverton  will be nominated.  The Nelson Daily News says thc country is prosperous because of the Liberal  party being in power at Ottawa.

Skattij", August G.���A.s a direct result  of the treasury department's recent ruling  permitting American salmon packers to  recover a drawback on duties paid on foreign fish caught for export, thc Canadian  canners have sought a truce iu the warfare going on near the border waters. A  conference has just been held here between J.A. Russell of Vancouver, British  Columbia, and T.B. McGovern of the Pacific Packing & Navigation Company, at  which it was agreed that the Canadians  would cease fishing iu American waters  and buying American fish, aud the Amor-  cans, so far a.s the salmon combine is concerned, will keep out of Canadian waters.  The Canadians for years have encouraged  fishing in American waters for the canneries, but the duty on .salmon prevented  retaliation by the Americans. With the  drawback allowed by the treasury, the  Americans wero put iu a position to retaliate.  Nicw York, August 0.���The stock market opened rather excited today find there  were wide declines in the number of  securities, caused presumably by fears of  failures. After the first few minutes  trading it became apparent that supporting orders in the market leaders had been  placed, and the tone became steadier.  The unexpected has happened iu the  election of cardinal Sin-to of Venice as  pope. His name was not mentioned for  the high office.  The Liberals of Grand Forks riding  have not yet agreed on a date on which to  hold a nominating convention for the riding-    PoDlar Creek Gold Mines.  Trout Lake Topic, 1st: Ed Morgan  came up on Tuesday's boat, bringing with  him specimens of the gold discovery on  the Lucky Jack claim on Poplar creek.  Tho rock simply beggars description.  That Morgan, Hamilton & O'Connor have  staked another Independence mine, not  one who has seen the gold specimens that  are now on exhibition in Trout Lake and  Ferguson doubts for one moment. There  are several specimens from the size of the  fist down to about the size of a walnut  that are almost solid gold. The gold is  not in it in specks, but is sticking out of  the quartz in nuggets from thc size of a  pea up to that of a Lima bean.  The specimens on exhibition have created the wildest excitement and before the  month of August has well begun there  will be a couple of thousand people in and  around Poplar creek. Charles Copp, who  was on the ground when the new strike  wa.s unearthed, says that never before in  Canada has he seen gold quartz anyway  nearly so rich as that on the Lucky Jack.  One boulder of quartz which has fallen  away from the vein is so heavy with the  the gold it contains that, no ordinary man  can lift it. The lead where these phenomenal values were obtained cuts into the  bottom of a bluff and from it has fallen  away pieces of .quartz and formed a small  slide, and in this small slide is believed to  be a fortune, for almost every piece. of  quartz on it contains free gold.  Before coming up the owners of the  claim panned a double handful of the dirt  alongside the vein after extracting all the  gold visible by this process they roasted  the residue and were astonished to see  several little beads of gold form on tlie  bottom of the pan.  Some of the samples brought up have  tbe gold associated with a fine-grained  blueish mineral of an opaline cast which,  is believed to be tellurium.. With a glass,  and in some of the pieces of quartz, 'with  the naked eye, minute particles of gold  can be seen all through the stuff.  The immense value of the new find has  necesssitated the placing of a guard  over the exposed part of the vein where  the new discovery was made and now two  shifts of a couple of men each keep prowlers and specimen hunters within bounds.  The place where the strike was made is  about 300 feet from the railway, and the  vein bearing these heavy gold values  crosses Lardo river. The river bottom has  been staked and. several more claims up  the opposite mountain.  It must not be supposed that the Lucky  Jack is the only property getting rich gold  values. There are several claims lying  between the Lucky Jack and the Gold  Park that have remarkable showings of  free gold. But the men owning these  properties, among whom are-Henry Magnuson and Frank Carlson, are very cautious about exposing their veins, for the  reason that the moment a showing of any  value is obtained they have to mount  guard over it. This is not because the  men down there are more dishonest than  anywhere else, but the crowd is thickening and the specimen hunters are as thick  as bees, aud it would take but very few  visits of these men to account for many  dollar's worth of gold. Harry Sheran said  he came onto one man who was digging  into his vein with his fingers and a prospecting pick, and while he was looking ou  the man drew out several nuggets of gold.  This was on Magnuson's claini. The parts  of the vein prospected as soon as gold is  found are immediately covered up.  ===N]3-"\v-Yo'KKT=Augustr_6f-^A=special=cable=  despatch from Rome to the Tribune says:  "It is learned from an authorative source  that the much talked of right of veto in  the conclave, by many considered uo longer  a right because it had fallen into disuse,  was actually used by Austria. On Sunday cardinal Rampolla stood far ahead of  all others on the ballots aud would Have  been elected, when suddenly the conclave  was thunderstruck by receiving a telegram fr:)in emperor Francis Joseph, saying that he exercised his veto absolutely  against cardinal Ranipolla. The greater  part of the sacred college was much irritated, especially the French cardinals,  who declared that they would not recognize the veto. But a night's rest brought  better counsels, and the conclave decided  that in the present position of the church  in France, the holy see could not fail to  give heed to the protest. It was thought  that the Austrian emperor's despatch  might have been the result of the joint  wishes of the triple alliance. This did  uot, however, allay the irritation of  France, which found itself powerless.  AMOUNCEMENT.

Thnt this convention reaffirms the policy of  the party in matters of provincial roads und  trails; the ownership and control of railways  and the development of the agricultural resources of the province as laid down In the pint-  form adopted iu October, 18!)!), which is as follows:  " To actively aid in the construction of trails  throughout the undeveloped portions of theprovince and the building of provincial trunk roads  of public necessity.

Asotin, Washington, August 5.���Despite tho efforts of sheriff Richnrds of  Asctiu county, the fnther of the victim,  who hnd sworn in 25 deputies to gunrd  him, William Hamilton, n well-to-do  farmer ahd the self-confessed murderer of  little Mabel Richards, was forcibly taken  from tho Asotin county jail shortly after  midnight and lynched by a mob of over  one thousand men, which had been congregating all yesterday from all parts of  Asotin county. Tho oilicers and guards  were overwhelemned by the mob and the  keys wero taken from the jailor. When  Hamilton's cell was readied no key could  be found and the mob sawed through the  bars until the door could be opened, and  after 16 minutes delay the prisoner was  dragged out of the cell and down into the  yard. Meanwhile another company of  masked men kept back tlie crowd, which  had filled the streets all night.  As the prisoner came from the -jail yard,  masked men clutched the murderer's  arms. Behind him, another,masked man  pressed closely with his hand over tho  murderer's mouth. As tlie group came  forward,- the masked men who had beeu  guarding the entrance to the jail formed  a chain about captive and captors, nnd iu  this manner tliey proceeded, keeping the  crowd at respectful distance.  When the lynchers with Hamilton  reached First and Fihnour streets they  halted under a guy wire which crosses  the street and connects electric light  poles. Here one of the leaders asked  Hamilton if he wanted to confess. He  did so, and asked that his jewelry, some  trifling trinkets he had in his possession,  and his watch be given to his father and  mother. Then there was another delay  while the method of Hamilton's death  was under consideration. Some of the  mob wanted to torture him, but the  original plan prevailed and it was decided  to hang him. A black mask was put  over Hamilton's head. It reached down  to his shoulders. The rope was then  placed about his neck and thrown over  the guy wire. It was secured by many  hands and the body lifted about four feet  off the ground. The man began to gasp  for breath, and his efforts were plainly  discernable a distance of two blocks. After Hamilton's body had been held long  enough to make certain that he was dead,  the rope was tied to a telegraph pole and  the body left suspended. The crowd,  satisfied that he had breathed his last,  quietly dispersed and the streets were  soon deserted.  Rome August 4.���-Cardinal Macchi,  secretary of apostolic briefs, announced  to the crowd assembled before St. Peter's  that cardinal Sarto had been elected pope,  and that he had taken the name- of Pius  X. The troops on duty immediately  lined up on the piaza and presented arms.  At ten minutes after twelve this afternoon pope Pius X appeared inside the  balcony of the basilica, and blessed the  populace amidst the acclamations of the-  enormous crowd assembled upon the  piazza.  Cardinal Giuseppe Sarto was born at  Riese, province of Venice, June 18th,  18.15. He was created cardinal and patriarch of "Venice June 12th, 1893. He is  very learned in the ecclesiastical doctrines, is modest, energetic,' a good administrator and organizer, and a patron  of the arts, and his seriousness always has  been proverbial. Early in April pope  Leo, in a conversation with father Perosi,  thc Italian composer, said in speaking of  cardinal Sarto: "Hold him very dear,  Perosi, as in the future he will be able to  do much for you. We firmly believe ho  will be oiu" successor, as he has been  known for many years as one of the  greatest preachers in tho church."  DisNyEit, _ Colorado,_.

The printers' union  at yesterday's meeting expressed the intention of its members to oppose the Alliance to the utmost. Tlie resolutions of  tho printers state that tlie attitude of the  Alliance i.s fraught wilh peril to the  liberty of the people awl is nn inceiilivp  to lawlessness. The Typographical union  condemns such steps as outrageous and  uiiiirchistic- in the extreme, concluding as  follows: "Resolved, that we warn members of the Denver Citizens' Alliance  against taking such action, because of the  consequences that will occur; and further warn them that members of organized labor will be assoeiiitcd in such a  manner us to protect themselves to the  fullest extent."  Euwooi), N.W.T., August 4.���A startling report reached here today. It staled  that a timekeeper, named VanAlstyne,  employed at a Canadian Northern construction camp, (i0 iniles west of here,  shot aud killed a man. Upon further investigation it was learned that it wa.s a  row between a gang of Galncian hi borers,  who wanted their time checks, which wa.s  refused by VanAlstyne. The laborers assumed a threatening attitude, and VanAlstyne, in self-defence tired into the  crowd, killing one of their number. VanAlstyne litis loft camp and the polico have  not been able to apprehend him.

London, August ii.���Whittulcer Wright,  the arrested promoter and director of the  London ��fc Globe Corporation of Loudon,  the hearing of whose case was yesterday  adjourned to August 24th, is still in Brex-  ton jail, some of the proposed sureties for  his bail of *250,000 uot having yet beeu  approved.  London', August 5.���The papers this  morning comment on the conclave's  choice as a wise and excellent one, and  say that although the new pope is less  brilliant as a scholar than his predecessor,  there will be ample compensation for this  iu his modem tion and single-mindedness  ou the question of the relations, of the  Vatican to England. Opinions, however,  differ.  The Daily News says: "We are at  least preserved from tho questionable intrigues of Ranipolti, who is friendly to  England." 'The Standard, on the other  hand, fears that the new pope sympathizes with, and to an extent will be  guided by, Rani polio's ideas, but admits  that if he is as tactful and conciliatory as  his friends represent, there is no need to  apprehend any violent reversal of policy.  The Telegraph'considers the choice of  the title of Pius X tis strange when the  character and career of the name Pius  is remembered.  All the pipers express curiosity to learn  the new pontiff's policy towards Franco  and Germany, but almost all anticipate  the opening of an era of peace and conciliation.

The Nelson  Tribune is the only newspaper in  British Columbia that has, from _its___  first   issue,   steadfastly   stood   for  Protection, and has always maintained that the people of the mining  districts ofBritish Columbia should  have   the   same  Protection   as   is  given the people of other sections  of   Canada.   The   Nelson  Tribune  also stands for,the up-building of  Kootenay as against the up-building of localities   in  the   state   of  Washington.    Every   ton   of   ore  mined in Kootenay and the Boundary and smelted and refined in British Columbia means work for men  who would live in British Columbia,  and who would spend a portion of  their wages in building and furnishing homes in towns in British Columbia.     The Nelson Tribune also  stands for equal rights in provincial  politics, believing that British Columbia as a whole cannot be best  governed by men who are all from  one town or one section of the prov-  ince.
