J. Deaue, publisher of the Nelson Daily News, to contest that  riding in the coming election, and the Kamloops Standard publishes the following information as to the amount Mr. Deane  drew from the Dominion government for playing secretary to  the Chinese-Japanese commission a year or so ago:  Audit Office, Ottawa, August 8, 1902.���Sir,���I am in receipt of your letter of the 9th ultimo, inclosing statement of the  number of days in which you were engaged on work of the  Chinese and Japanese Commission. According to your statement you were engaged 349 days in all: of these however 45  were Sundays and 4 at least were statutory holidays. The commission themselves were not paid for Sundays nor for holidays.  I have accordingly to disallow these 49 days unless 3'ou can  show that you were actually engaged on the work of the commission, or were actually travelling ou these days. I also find  iu your account a charge of $7.50 for a despatch bag. An  Order-in-Council of Juty 26, 1889, directs that 'No despatch-  boxes , or brief bags shall be issued for the use of members of  any Government Commission.' Under these circumstances I  am obliged to disallow the item iu question. Your account as  I now pass it may be summarized as follows:  Expenses in connection with Commission, viz.: Janitors,   rent  of   halls,   advertising,   stationery,   etc.,       .  $422.25 less $7.50 for despatch bag disallowed $   414 75  Travelling expenses of yourself, including board, etc.   1,850 06  Services, 300 days at $20......:........ :...>..,..... ���   6,000 00  8,264 81  Less pa3nneuts ou account     7,750 00  $  5H 81  for which amount I am today authorizing the issue of a cheque.

At Clifton Forge, the two  negroes were taken on board to be brought  to Covington, Virginia. The engineer  and conductor saw lights waving on the-  track after leaving Clifton, for as the train,  was brought to a standstill a rnob surrounded the train and threateued to shoot-  the engineer if he moved the train. The  conductor was prepared for the mob and.  ordered all the doors of the cars locked.  Finding it impossible to obtain the negroes the crowd gathered around the-  smoking-car, in which tlie negroes were  guarded. The conductor.cautioned passengers to lie flat on the floor as the mob began  firing into the windows of the smoker.  Not a passenger or trainman was injured.  The engineer dm-iug the firing had sat  upon his engine covered by revolvers in  the hands of several members of the mob,  and when the mob had almost exhausted.  their supply of bullets they left the engineer unguarded. Left alone, he pulled  the throttle wide open and the train began  to move. The mob climbed upon the  platform of the cars and attempted to  stop the train by applying the ah* brakes.  They were unsuccessful, however, to apply them at full pressure, as the train had  gotten under such headway. The mob  then jumped from the moving train and  fired several farewell shots into the car  windows. The train gained quick momentum and did not stop until Coviugtou  was reached, where the negroes wore  placed in jail. The negroes for whom the  train was held up are from Lynchbm-g,  Virginia, and are supposed to be the men  who shot and seriously wounded a white  brakeman, Edward Hite, on the Chesapeake & Ohio excursion between Clifton  Forge awl Lynchburg a few days ago.  [Associated l'ress to The Evening Tribune.]  London, August 1.���A supplementary  estimate issued this morning grants an  additional $250,000 for the aid of the royal  commission to the St. Louis exposition for  the period ending March 31st, 1904. An  explanatory note says all further contributions will be provided in the budgets of  subequent years.  What men are depends, first- on what  they bring into the world���that is, heredity; and, second, on the conditions nnd  influences of every sort into which they  are born and in which they live���that is,  environment. Inasmuch as heredity of  the individual is as unchangeable as the  past, our only hope of improving him is  to improve his-environment. This may be  done in numberless ways���by giving him  better food, better air, a more sanitary  home, by educating him, by bringing to  bear the best moral and spiritual influences, and by inspiring noble aims and  worthy motives..  A movement is already on foot for tlie  erection of a $50,000 memorial to chief  Arthur. The matter will be brought up  at the next annual meeting of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers at Los  Angeles, California. It is intended to  make the memorial a tribute from railroad men all over the country. The death ���  of chief Arthur, and since'then the death  of acting chief Youugson, has given rise  to talk of his successor. The appointment  rests with the ten grand lodge officers.  They will probably name a temporary  successor, and leave the election of a per- ���  mauent head to the Los Angeles meeting.  At a recent meeting of the Academy of  Sciences at Paris, M. d'Ai-sonval gave a  description of a new invention for typesetting by telegraph, the electric current  being made to perforate the characters on  a moving _band connected with a typesetting machine. It is claimed that the contrivance, .which is the work of- M. Roz'al,  will dispense with transcription altogether  for press purposes. ��� ���. ;   't  ��� Tlie Seattle Central Trades Council are  holding a two weeks' carnival in the hope  of raising sufficient money to complete  then* labor temple, on which work has  been stopped for some time because of  lack of funds.   .   .The output of coal of Great Britain last  year was 327,000,000 tons more than ever  before.'"'"

Within certain limits, a union man has  a right to interfere with a fellow-unionist  as to whether the latter sljpuld hot leave  the employ of an einployeijjwhois employing non-union labor contrary to the laws  of the union. The case hai.not been actually embodied as law;byxk formal decision, but the words of chief justice sir William Meredith at Osgoode hall, Toronto, a  few days ago denote theHJopinion of the  courts as to the interferance by a union or  its members with employees, and the distance that interference can go. , In the  case of S. G. Brnch, contractor, of Preston, against George Roth, of the same  place, an injunction was :asked to be continued to restrain Roth from interfering  Brnch's workmen. In (adjourning the  motion until the trial of the suit, upon the  undertaking of Mr. Seeordj the counsel of  Ro th, th at the latter would not interfere  any further until the disposal of the suit  with Brnch's workmen, it j was virtually  laid down by the chief justice as a principle of law that "A, B.'-.C can agree not to  work for firms that employ non-union labor, andthat one union member can\tell  another who is working oil a non-union  job that he is doing sojaga'ihst the rules of  the union:"      -     \     ������ ��� 'J ���  . The ingenuity of the wildest sensation  novelist could scarcely conceive a horror'  such as this: Robert Hogg- a young man  of 22, was caught by the shaft while working at Wood &Rushton's mill, Blackburn,  England, whirled around the shaft, and  literally torn to pieces; But this is not  the worst." His remains fell on the looms  worked by his equally 'young wife underneath the shafting. (The poor woman  was carried out fainting and has not yet,  recovered from the-fearful shock.  After eleven weeks, '^tlie striking builders' laborers of Toronto have returned to  work at the old rate"; of,: 25 cents per hour.  The ,labprers;-;sfe*uck for 80. cents aiid refused to compromise at- 27% "cents. At  one time 3000 men*, were drawing strike  pay, $30,000 a week being paid out.  The 125 Scotch moulders brought to Toronto tov take the plaqes of strikers are  -veiy-much.dissatiSfie<i|��Theh^e_aployers-,i  the Canada Foundry Company, are not  prepared to free thejh from their contract.  Last week two union moulders were ar  rested for speaking with one of the non-  unionists. To prevent the Scotchmen,  who are nearly all union men, from learning the true state of affairs, they are  lodged and fed in tents and sheds on the  premises, and are not permitted to leave  the works except under the guidance of a  company policeman, eight of whom are  employed.  The Slater Shoe Company of Montreal  have concliided that a union not affiliated  with the international of its craft is nothing but a medium of industrial disturbance. Tiring of continuous squabbling  with a local union of shoe workers, calling themselves the, Canadian Federated  Shoe Workers, the firm has signed' an  agreement to employ only members of the  International. Boot and Shoe Workers  Union.- . Some 200 workers have been  given then* choice of joining a legitimate  trade organization or quitting their job.  The Durham (England) miners will  take a referendum vote, the ballot paper  being in this form :  "In favor of securing tlie eight-hour day  by trade union effort, ������.   -  ' 'In favor of securing the eight-horn* day  by act of parliament, -���-."

But on the other hand Chris Foley  hardly appears to have lived up to his $25 per diem, as his total  expenses for that luxury during the eight and a half months  that he was engaged in the service of his country were only  $1.50. For the honor of B. C. he might have charged up a  little more even if he never paid> it. It may be, however, that  Mr. Foley was unable to find a white laundryman and went unwashed rather than employ a Chinese washeeman."

Contracting to De1k>er\ the Labor Vote  To LaJfryer Suhey Stockton Taylor  There is trouble in candidate Taylor's  camp over the new postoffice building.  To begin with: W. G.  Gillett,  who is a  local contractor,' J. A. McDonald, who is  the architect in charge of construction of  the post oflice building, and John Burns,  a member of the local carpenter's union,  are all three members of candidate Taylor's campaign committee,  and are supposed to be doing their utmost to secure  his ��� election   over that bad   man, John  Houston, who has always been so un-  -fi-iendly-to-labor.���The-man-who-has-the.  contract  for   the postoffice building believed it to be only right that he should  get the job of laying the concrete sidewalk around the building, as is the usual  custom.   But to head him off,  contractor  Gillett and architect McDonald,  so it is  said, sent in a bid for the  work without  his knowledge, or, bids being called for.  Contractor Lemoiue, who has a pull at Ottawa, said he had been awarded the contract for the work,  notwithstanding the  bid sent iu by Gillett and McDonald. This  put Gillett and McDonald on their mettle,  and they got John Burns, so it is said, to  go to Candidate Taylorandsny, thntif Gillett did not get the work ho (Taylor) would  lose the labor vote at the coming election.  As Taylor knows he must have the labor  vote to get within a chance of winning,  he began spendiug money on telegrams to  Ottawa, and the result is that contractor  Lemoiuo got left, and contractor Gillett.  has the contract for the sidewalk.   The  question the labor men of Nelson are asking themselves is, ''whogave John Burns,  carpenter, and W. G. Gillett,  contractor,  authority to deliver the labor vote of Nelson to Sidney Stockton Taylor, lawyer?"  The boys who work at skilled and unskilled   labor are beginning   to  wonder  where they are at; if they are to be delivered over at will to candidate Taylor by  two of his committeemen.  The Liberals of Cranbrook held their  second or third nominating convention at  Cranbrook this week, and, after wrangling, adjourned for two weeks. It seems  the Druryites picked up two delegates at  Kimberley or Marysville, and tho auti-  Druryites did the same, and the wrangle  was over whicli of the two should have a  vote in the convention. Tho Conservatives are well organized throught Cranbrook riding, and will hold their nominating convention on Saturdav, August  15th. '  Thomas Hardy, ex-mayor of Greenwood,  who was a candidate before the Liberal  convention for nomination for Greenwood riding, publishes a card thanking  the Liberals who supported him'.- He also  says he will take under consideration the  advice that he run a.s an independent candidate. The Conservatives of the .same,  riding are getting the party machinery in  good order, but it is not likely they will  nominate a candidate on August'J5th.  The nomination will be made a week or  so later.  At the provincial election held on June  9th, 1900, the total vote polled in the districts now embraced in the eleven ridings  of southeastern British Columbia was as  follows:  Nelson City ': :.;   Itosslund   C'rand Forks ,    Greenwood   Ymir   Slocan......

The Tribune wired the collectors of voters of thc several ridings this  morning for the number of names registered, and got replies as follows:  Nelson City  SI'S  Kosslti nd  7(i_  C!rnml Forks  77l*>  (Ireenwood  G-7  Ymir  717  Slocan  Gta  Kaslo  710  Itcvelstoke   Col inn bin '.

If he does not accept, tho nomination, it is said, will be  tendered John Keen, the president of the  Provincial Miniug Association. Mr. Keen  is a late convert to the party, but he  didn't flop from one party to the other  any more suddenly rhau did the Liberal  party's nominee for Nelson City riding,  who is charged wit li making a red-hot  Conservative speech in Kaslo on the night  of his arrival in that town from Edmonton, Alberta, and on his arrival in Nelson  the next day, sending in an application to  join the Liberal association, of which Jack  Gibson was president. But this may only  be a "campaign lie.'*  John Sprunt Hill, tho young attorney  who was a Tammany candidate for congress last fall in a Republican district in  New York city, ami was naturally defeated, says that his \ mlitical situation was  not so bad as that of it Republican lie once  met in his native st.it'', North Carolina.  This man had worked long and earnestly  for his party without reward, and someone suggested that h- should make application for the post ofnVo in his town. "No  use," said the other, "I belong to a minority faction of a n-inority division of a  minority branch of .1 minority wing of a  minority section >>l' the Republican  party."

He says they had a sure thing for  second place in the senior race, but lost  that position through an accident. When  within half a mile of the finish, a piece of  floating board got caught on the fin of the  boat. The crew kept rowing in th'e hope  that it would fall off, but it didn't, and  the boat had to be slowed down to get rid  of it. Before the board caught the fin,  Nelson was a boat length behind Portland  -and-tlnec ahead-o��Vancouver,=-and-waen-  they got rid of the board, they wore three  lengths behind Vancouver. Nelsou is seldom a tail-euder in anything, and the four  in' Nelson's boat determined they would  beat out Vancouver and they Jdid. Their  effort, to do this was the one feature of the  race that excited the spectators. It was a  magnificent spurt nnd the boys wore  heartily cheered when they crossed the  line a boat's length ahead of the Vancouver four. Mr. Winter is tlie only one of  the Nelson crewewho has returned, tlie  others remaining for a few day's sightseeing.           While there were threats that many appeals would be taken to tho courts from  the decision of the court of revision on the  city assessment, for J9l)!i, only one property-owner appealed, and tlie appeal was  heard by judge Forin today, li. H. T.  Simpkins made the appeal. He owns four  lots on the corner of Mines Koad and  Kootenay street and running back to Hoover street. The four lots make a piece of  ground (II feet by 100, and the assessor  valued them at ��1000. Mr. Simpkins had  A. G. Gamble and S. M. Brydges a.s witnesses and the assessor had T. M. Ward  and J. E. Annable. S. S. Taylor, K. C,  represented the city.  TV''*^I  10c For Three Months;  The Saturday edition of The Nelson Tribune will be sent for 10c for --���  THREE MONTHS from August; ,  1st, 1903, to the address of any per^: 'a.  son who is a registered voter in the,;. :j  following" named election districts ? J  Ymir, Kaslo, Slocan, Greenwood,  Grand Forks, Revelstoke, Columbia,. J  Cranbrook, and Fernie. The Nelson o;  Tribune is the only newspaper in,.:^  British Columbia that has, from its* .1?  first issue, steadfastly stood fotC.vS  Protection, and has always maim,45  tained that the people of the miriingi:i|  districts of British Columbia shoiild^  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^sp^nd^arpnc^  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 province.  Hon. Charles Wilson, K. C, and Hon.  R. F. Green arrived in Nelson yesterday  afternoon on the steamer Moyie, having  stopped over a day at Fernie and Cranbrook, being entertained at the latter  place to a dinner given by the leading  Conservatives of the town. They left on  the morning boat for Kaslo, where they  will spend a day, returning to Nelson tomorrow. From Nelson tliey go to Victoria. They are not talking politics for.  publication.  Thc city assessment in 1!)02 was $l,-.'(iS,-  075 ou land and $1,0!)!!,o:i5 on improvements. This year the assessment is $1,-  249,540 on land and .*JJ, 1 TO,*-'75on improvements. The decrease! on land is $18,5:15  and the increase on improvements is $77,-  740; but as improvements are practically  exempt from taxation, the real estate  taxes for KKW, if Ihe rate of taxation is  the same as last year, will be *j52!IO less  than for U)02.  The Hall mines smelter at Nelson received 12 carloads of ore from the Rambler-Cariboo mine this week.

In Nelson,  i*_ule,John Houston has not personally  iterviewed .638  electors,   as  candidate  Caylor,j6h^,;he has seen to it that those  vho *_-_ll vote for him have been placed  on ~ thX>oters'  list.   In   Kaslo,  "Bob"  }reenJs friends-are -doing-more-effective-  vork thtin,has yet been done by the friends  ai the Liberal candidate, John L.  Retal-  ck, who is Still in the East.   Much the  ae 'conditions exist in the other dis-  icts where the Liberals have made nomi-  itions.   By making their nominations  an August loth, the Conservatives are,  for all practical purposes,  on an equal  footing with the Liberals.   Any district  the province can easily be canvassed in  wo months; in fact, with a few exceptions, like Cariboo, Alberni, Skeena, aud  _tlLu, they could be canvassed in a month.  Victoria and Vancouver nominations  fill probably not be made beforo thc mid-  le of September, as neither party has,  i yet, been able to pick out available can-  lidates.   Tho claims that have been made  by enthusiastic party men on the result of  |the election 'should he discounted, for no  t>ne of these ehtuusiasts has reliable data  ->n  which to   base   an   estimate.     The  roters' lists are incomplete, and of the  mndreds of new  names already on the  Usts in several of the ridings  little is  iowu as to tbe political leanings or bias  of their owners.   In the five city districts,  vhich return 12 members, the Conserva-  ives should elect 3 in Vancouver, 2 in  Victoria, and 1 each in Nelson aud Ross-  id.   In the seven country districts on  Vancouver Island the Conservatives have  igood show to win in Esquimalt, Saanich,  .owichan, and Comox. In the four lower  Eraser  valley   districts,    Dewdney   and  .ichinond are more than likely to go Con-  ervative.   Of  the nine members to be  bleeted in  Yale, Lillooet, and Cariboo,  phose from Kamloops,  Okanagan,  Simil-  leen, and Grand Forks, and one from  "yariboo can be placed in the Conservative  bolumn.    Skeena and Atlin may break  even.   Of the seven country districts in  Cootenay, the Conservatives should carry  fmir,   Kaslo,   Slocan,   Revelstoke,   aud  "Jranbrook.   This estimate would give the  conservatives 24 members in a house of  i, or a majority of five not counting the  speaker, which is a majority large enough  for all practical purposes.  The Victoria Times, a newspaper owned  by a politician who has never been able to  get an oflice through a vote of the electors  of the city in which he lives, is rampant  because premier McBride allows one oflice  to remain unfilled, the office of provincial  secretary. If the office is not filled, no  one can be drawing the salary, so the province is saving $333.33 amonth. The Victoria Times is the mouthpiece in Victoria  of the Liberal soreheads and Conservative  mugwumps, and soreheads and mugwumps when not ignored are distrusted,  not only in Victoria, but in every riding  in the province, for they are maliciously  mean and spitefully vindictive.  The Cranbrook Herald puts itself on  record by saying that "The Tribune knows  " it is talking the worst kind of political  " rot when it says the Ontario farmer or  " any other farmer in Canada is protected  " by the tariff."   The Herald;, says "the  " product of the fanner": is an export pro-7  " duct, and the price is governed by the  "surplus shipped to foreign countries."  The farmers of Ontario, and for that matter the farmers of Canada, produce grain;  fruits, dairy   products,   and   live  stock.  Their home market is saved to them by  protective duties that range from 25 to 100  per cent.   The Canadian fanner does not  compete in the home market-with' the  farmers of any other country.   The Ontario farmer in selling his produce in Toronto and Hamilton and London does not  compete with farmers from New York  state and Michigan.    The Ontario farmer,  if he produces more than is required for  the home market, sells the   surplus in  Great Britain, and the price he receives  depends on the quality of the product.   If  his butter is of an inferior grade, the price  will be low; but if it is of a superior quality, the price will be correspondingly high.  Potatoes grown around Hillsburgh, On-'  tario, sell in Philadelphia and Cincinnati  for a better price than potatoes grown  anywhere   in   the   United   States,   yet  the   potato    growers'    of    the    United  States, like the potato growers of Canada, are protected by a 25 per cent duty.  The apple growers of Annapolis valley,  "NovarScotia, can "sell-their product any--  where in the world at a high price, because of thc superior quality of the fruit;  yet when these apples are canned as pie  fruit, the product is protected by a duty  of 100 per cent.   Locality has much to do  with prices.   On last Wednesday creamery butter was quoted in Toronto, Ontario, for 18 to 19 cents; yet thc price in  Nelson is 80 to 35 cents, and in Spokane,  Washington, 35 cents.   Eggs were quoted  in Toronto at 10 to 20 cents.   In Nelson  the price is 35 cents, and tlie price in Spokane on Friday was 30 cents.   Dressed  fresh meats were quoted  in Toronto on  Wednesday at 8)<_ to 10 cents by the quarter.   Tho price in Spokane on Friday was  9 cents.   Will  the Herald contend that  the prices paid the Canadian farmer for  his eggs, butter, and fresh meats is governed by the prices in foreign countries to  which he ships his surplus?   If there was  no home market, such a contention would  hold good; but there is a home market in  Canada, and that home market not only  largely governs prices, but was created by  the adoption of the fiscal system known  as Protection.  a vote in every riding-which will uot be  swayed by party feeling or party prejudice. There seems to bo a very general feeling throughout Kootenay aud  the Boundary, and the feeling is not-  confined to one party, that the members  elect from Kootenay and Boundary should  be more assertive than they have- been in  the past; that in the past, the members  havo been altogether too willing to be kept  in leading strings. The southeastern portion of British Columbia is the one section of that has for the past ten  years attracted capital to the province, and it is the one section that has  always paid its way. Its people, irrespective of party affiliations, are becoming a  trifle restive, and it would not be surprising if the next legislature had among its  members men from Kootenay and the  Boundary who. would give, not take, orders.  If the Nelson Trades and Labor Council, made up as it is of the members of a  dozen labor organizations���the silk-stockinged Lawyer's Union not being one of  them���is wise it will not take any part in  politics as an organization, leaving to individual members perfect freedom of political action. The membership of the  Trades and Labor Council is made up of a  fixed number of delegates from each of  the unions in Nelson, and these delegates  have no power to control the political action of the members of their respective  unions. Then is it not a piece of folly for  the members of the Nelson Trades and Labor Council, who at the same time are  members of one or the other of the campaign committees in Nelson, to force a  declaration that the members of the unions  affiliating with the Trades and Labor  Council will unanimously support the candidate of either party. In 1900, the Nelson  Trades and Labor Council, believing that  legislation favorable to labor was in jeopardy, indorsed the candidate put up- by  the Provincial Party; but any one who  had the slightsst knowledge of the workings of that campaign knows that the en-  dorsation did not change the vote of a  member of a labor union in Nelson.  ;���". The hostility to Nelson of adherents of  the Liberal party, men who aspire to seats  in the legislative assembly, is most pronounced. At Revelstoke James M. Kellie, a prominent Liberal, and an aspirant  for office as a Liberal, at a public meeting  denounced the government foi- appropriating money to build a new court house at  Nelson. Were the Liberals to gain control of the legislature at the coming election the money appropriated-for the new  .court-house at Nelson would remain unspent, if'any number of men like, James  M. Kellie are successful at the polls.  Apart from, the actual necessity for the  building, the construction of a new court  house means more to laboring men and  j mechanics than to any other class in Nelson. : A Conservative secured the appropriation. Is it wise to allow Liberals like  Kellie of Revelstoke to prevent the money  appropriated being spent? Laboring men  and mechanics, think for yourselves and  do not allow* a few paid "boosters" in can-  date Taylor's committee room to influence  you. .-���'.:"'.���  The decision of judge Forin in the case  of an appeal from the city's assessment  for 1903 is merely in line with every decision that has been made by a trial judge  in a case wherein the City of Nelson was  a party. The City of Nelson, according  to the ferial judges, has always been wrong.  Appeals to a full court, however, have  =generally=resulted-in=reversing=the^decis���  ions of the trial judges. Municipalities,  according to trial judges, are seldom right  in any case, no matter what the interest  involved may be, and as a result of these  decisions, they have been "milked" for  hundreds of thousands of dollars in the  way of court costs and lawyer's fees.  Municipalities are good pay.  It it yet too early to make more thau a  rough guess at the relative chances of the  two parties who iu*e contending for political control of this province. There is a  very fair registration of voters in the different districts; larger in some districts  than in others, which must menu that  the people tire interested. In some districts the Conservatives nre the better  organized and the more harmonious; iu  others, the Liberals havo that advantage.  There is ono point generally conceded, and that is wherever Labor or  Socialist candidates run, the Conservatives will be the gainer over the Liberals.  The result of the election in Manitoba  will have little effect, but what little it  will have will be to the advantage of tho  Conservatives. A good deal will depend  on the candidates nominated, for there is  The Kamloops Sentinel says there is little chance of the Conservatives carrying a  constituency in Kootenay or the Boundary section of Yale. The Sentinel need  not worry over Kootenay and the Boundary. The people iu the eleven constituencies in this section of the province nre  as able to take care of themselves as arc  people in any other section of the province, and the Sentinel will not claim that  the Liberals will make a clean sweep in  any other section. Thc publisher of the  Sentinel is the Liberal coudidate in Kamloops riding and it will take him all his  time to get within reaching distance of an  election.        The Liberals have tried to make political capital out of a letter James Dunsmuir  wrote to some one iu Ottawa regarding  the admission of Chinese into Canada.  Will the Liberals explain how it is that  the chairman of the Liberal Association  iu Victoria employs Chinese, and no  white labor, in his shirt and overall factory  in Victoria? A man must be prominent  in the councils of a party in order to be n  chairman of a party association iu a town  of 30,000 people.  Members of labor organizations iu Nelson, like business men in Nelson, Have  their political affiliations; and like business men, will vote as they affiliate. Labor men who are Liberals will vote for the  Liberal candidate, for the same reason  that the business men who are Conservatives will vote for the Conservative candidates, and the sooner they get into candidate Taylor's committee rooms, and stop  posturing on street corners a.s independents, the greater they will be respected  by their fellow-workers who are Conservatives. The fight in Nelson will be for  "blood" and no quarter will be asked or  given. There is no gratitude in politics,  aud the candidate who expiets votes for  work or favors done individuals or organizations will get left. The Tribune has  no more use for a Labor doughface than it  has for a silk-stocking Sorehead.  Liberal candidate Taylor i.s the attorney  of the Western Federation of Miners, and  in addition to the cash he receives for his  services demands that the members of the  Nelson Miner's Union shall deliver their  votes to him, irrespective of the party affiliation of the men who have the votes.  The members of Nelson Miners' Union  who are Liberals will, no doubt, vote for  Sidney Stockton Taylor, the Liberal candidate, but that they can influence the  members who are Conservatives to vote  against the Conservative candidate is  doubtful.  "Canadian" and "American/*  With increasing frequency, as the spirit  of Canadian nationality becomes more robust and assertive, there breaks out the  old protest from this side against the habit  of calling the people of the United States  "Americans." Etymologically and geologically the protest is quite justified, but  in such matters usage is all powerful. It  seems quite certain that, exentually the  term "Americans" will be restricted to  . our neighbors, and that we shall be known  as "Canadians," just as those to the south  of the United States are called anything  but "Mexicans."  On a calm consideration of the situation,  we believe that it will be better so, and  for this- reason an intelligent Canadian  should begin at once to use these terms as  they are used iii the United States. No  foreigner who takes enough interest in  Canada to tall*: about us is likely to forget  that we live in North America, least of  all our somewhat jealous and overbearing  neighbors. We know our history and ua  tianal .evolution, hot so well as we should  know them, but better than most foreigners know theirs, and we feel that there is .  much in the name "Canadian" of whicli  we may well be proud. There is for us  no significance in the word "American,"  no tradition to cherish, no achievement  to connote, no hero to idealize or idolize.  Let it go to those who are so unfortunate  as to be afflicted with-a name which cannot be converted into ah adjective.  If a serious side to this controversy  were sought for it would not be hard to  find,'but it would not lie in the line of  misappropriated title. There seems: no.  reason to doubt that Canadians are coming; face to face with a grave crisis in their  political history, and that on both sides of  the Atlantic, aniong aliens hardly less  than among our own kin, this is becoming  clearly recognized. The French have  known about Canada for a long time; the  Germans got recently a reminder of our  existence they will not soon forget; the  British are beginning to realize that the  United States does not include the whole  of this continent; and the; Americans are  awakening to the fact that it is not likely  to do so. Some of then* publicists are  good natured and even cordial about onr  confirmed separatism, but others are  querulous and malevolent. ;  Harper's Weekly, once, a high-class  journal, tells Great Britain that "in the  reasonable hope of the indissoluble friendship of the United States," not "in the  fautistic dream of a consolidated British  Empire," lies "the key of her safety and  prosperity," and adds, "that hope will  scarcely be fulfilled so long as Canada remains an alien and a rival country, but  nothing would stop its fulfillment were  Canada a part of the United States."  Without venturing any rash prediction  one may assert that Canada is likely to remain indefinitely foreign to the United  States and an industrial competitor  in the common markets of the  rest of the world. Canadians generally  believe that for a variety of reasons such  a future will be better for civilization, and  a little consideration __ffin._prQ_ably._con__  vince most of them that the separatism is  likely te be promoted by the use of two  names which will indicate clearly two  distinct nationalities.  but when I got ou my feet the thought  that the president was interfering with a  coordaiuate branch of the government to  the extent of practically commanding the  senate to stay in session all night, made  my gore rise, and I concluded to show  Grover that there was one pop senator  from the woolly west that he could not  cork up. So I talked along easily. My  populist training had caused me to road a  wagon load of books on political economy,  and I had discussed the silver question  from every phase, up one side and down  the other. Occasionally I would 'spell'  myself by sending some book or paper to  the clerk's desk and have him read it as a  part of my speech. Then I would read  long extracts from books myself. In this  way I ran along until 8 o'clock the next  morning.  "Senator Voorhees was in charge of the  bill which I was opposing. Most of the  night he was my sole auditor. He was  asieep, too, most of the time and sat there  with his mouth open. Along about S  o'clock in tho morning Fred Dubois  slipped up to me and told me that Martin of Kansas wanted to speak.  " 'The morning papers are on the  street,' said Dubois, 'and they've printed  Martin's speech, which he hasn't had a  chance to deliver.'  "Well, I'd been riming along for 15  hours, so I thought I would let Martin  have a chance. I announced thatl would  yield the floor to the senator from Kansas.  "That made Dan Voorhees mad, and he  jumped out of his chair.  " 'You can't farm out the time on the  floor of the United States senate,' he declared, and I could see he was mad all  over.  " 'All right,' I said, 'you can take your  choice between listening to the senator  from Kansas or listening to me for 12 or  10 hours longer.'  "Old Dan just threw* both hands iu the  air.  " 'I'll take the senator from Kansas,'  he said, with almost a groan, and my 15  horn- speech was over."  The Rossland Carnival.  The chairman of the carnival committee is of the opinion that there will be no  trouble iu i*aising the $3000 necessary for  the proper celebration of tho carnival,  |350O if necessary. Over $2000 are already  in sight and the remainder will easily be  reached by the unremitting efforts of the  really excellent finance committee at  work. This sum of money has allowed  the general committee to be generous in  its dealings with the demands of the subcommittees and altogether the celebration  will be of no mean order. The sum of  money mentioned is, of course, exclusive  of the gate receipts, -which should easily  total if J 500'with the attractions afforded.  The only hitch would seem to be with  the lacrosse people. Undoubtedly popular as the game is, it will- not remain so  for very long if its exponents are ever out  with the bigmitt. There is every disposition on the part of the sub-committee on  this sport to meet the demands of outside  teams in any fair -way. They are willing  to put up the legitimate expenses of board  and railway fare,; and to hang up a good  purse for the winning team. This is going far enough, forin the interests of true  sport the English rule should be adopted,  which is that any amateur competing for  a money prize is thereafter debarred from  all amateur competition. On the other  hand if sport is brought down to a professional basis it will soon die out. A handsome trophy of substantial value should  be the only prize offered.  Sunday Closing Laws Not Good.  Much interest has been ai-oused throughout the province by the announcement of  the privy council on July 14th last, reversing the decision of the Ontario court of  appeals in the case of the Attorney-General vs. the City of Hamilton, by which,  their lordships held that laws relating to  Sunday observance are'ultra vires of' the  local legislatures. A provincial case which  is recalled with interest at this time is  that, of the City of Vancouver vs. Lambert, for keeping a barber shop open on  Sunday, which was brought up on appeal  from the police magistrate before judge  Bole. Mr. Cane, for defendant, raised  tlie -������-  Champion Long Speech Makers.  Ex-senator W. V. Allen of Nebraska,  was at Spokane last week, and his visit  leads .the Review into stating that the  ex-senator made the longest speech on record, which is a mistake. The longest  speech on record, iu America, at least,  was made by a member of the British Columbia legislature, who spoke for 22  hours. The present premier of British  Columbia, Richard McBride, i.s also on  record with a long speech, made during  the session of the legislature iu 1902. He  held the floor for over nino hours. But  the Nebraska ex-senator's speech was on  a question then believed to be of great importance to the United States, and his  own account of how he came to deliver it  is of interest to the people of Kootenay.  It was against the repeal of thc Sherman  silver-purchase law, and was delivered in  the United States senate, in the fall of  1893.   Mr. Allen says:' ,'..'  "We had been debatingthe bill for three  months, and it had resolved iitself into a  mere question of physical endurance. I  had just been elected to the senate, and  had made my maiden speech against the  bill. I had spoken only an hour and a  half, and had. determined, out of deference to senatorial custom, uot to speak  again. I didn't, want to 'butt in' too  early in my senatorial career.  "One afternoon senator Teller came to  me and told me that Vilas of Wisconsin  had brought the word from the White  House direct that the senate was to be  kept in session all night if necessary to  tire out the silver senators. Teller told  me our friends were pretty well used up,  and asked me if I would speak that night.  I demurred because of my newness in the  senate, and because of having already  spoken once. But he persuaded me to  make the effort. I told him to get tin-  floor and hold it till I could get a bite to  eat.  "I went out, aud when I came back Teller was talking. The old man wa.s so fatigued by the long fight that he wa.s swaying on his feet. He saw me come in and  sat down. I got the floor aud started to  talk.   It was then about 5:15.  "I hadn't intended to talk very long,  "tbe^qrre~stiou~of  the act, and it was finally agreed to let  matter be governed by the decision of the  Ontario court of appeals. As this judgment declared the Sunday law ultra vires  of the local legislature, the appeal was  dismissed, but when doing so judge Bole  took occasion to point out that he respectfully dissented from the .ruling of the appeal court as not being sustained by adequate reasons. The right to legislate on  Sunday observance, by the privy council's  decision, thus belongs to the Dominion  government and the bylaws of cities aro  consequently ultra vires.  How the Pennant Was Lost.  Although  worth   perhaps $500,000, 75  cents separated colonel Rogers from his  life's ambition���a championship ball team  for Philadelphia.   It was iu 1900 that tho  blow hit him; when the  team  of which  Rogers was president was twelve games  ahead in thc pennant race, and, he thinks,  was certain of the bunting.   Then it was  that Lajoie and Flick quai-reled over the  ownership of a 75-cent bat, and the former struck at the latter and missed him  and fractured his thumb in three places  against an iron grating.    "We knew the  pennant was gone right there," said Rogers.    "The   people of Philadelphia were  un in arms that Lajoie should take such  chances over matters so trivial to him and  yet so important to them in a baseball  way.    Some demanded a fine of $1000.  Others suggested many intemperate things  but  the directors waited until the had  cooled off, and Lajoie lost a month's pay."  But this was not all.   "Besides the pennant, I am satisfied that indiscreet act of  Lajoie's cost ns $50,000 in money through  loss   of attendance,"  said Rogers.   The  same   loss of a month's pay���$_(>(!���was  still sticking in Lajoie's craw when he  went to Rogers'  law office after the famous decision in the courts, enjoining the  fonncr   from   playing   in    Pennsylvania  with any other team than the Phillies, to  settle their differa:ccs,  and after everything else had born agreed upou Lajoie  demanded a retm n of the ��4(1(5.    "I told  I would not do that," declared Rogers.  "I had already agreed to pay him at the  rato of $4000 for the season, and he had  agreed to join the team, then in Chicago."  "Somersof Cleveland held $0000 under  his nose in the Bingham, house, and the  next day he jumped."

BE UP AND DOING  The prize list for the first annual fair of the Nelson Agricultural and Industrial Association is being distributed. Apart  from its neat typography, it is a most complete prize list and  programme, probably the most complete that will be issued iu  British Columbia in 1903. The fair is to be held at Nelson on  September 24th and 25th, two months hence; and it is the duty  of every resident of Nelsou to do something to make it a success,  not only in the excellence of the exhibits but in their variet3'* and  number. "Nelson has probably a ���;hundred ladies who' pride  themselves on their bread, their preserves, their needlework,  their flowers, or their painting. Adjacent towns has as many  more. There are farmers in Kootena}'- who can make splendid  displays of vegetables, fruits, and live stock. The mechanics of  Nelson and Rossland have no equals in the province. While  the Coast cities have large manufacturing establishments, those  of Kootenay are varied, so that their exhibits would be bound to  attract attention. And when it conies to making a mineral  exhibit, what country stands a show with that of which Nelson  is the center?  PLAYING FOR POINTS  An effort is being made b}' Liberal Candidate Taylor's Cam-  1 1  paign Committee to get the Nelson Trades and Labor Council  to declare in his favor. That is a game that two can play at,  and while the Liberal-Conservatives have not nominated a  candidate, yet their organization is in good working order. In  the game of politics, points count, just as in other games, and if  Candidate Taylor can get the Nelson Trades and Labor Council  to declai'e in his favor, he knows that the influence of such a  declaration would -not hurt his candidacy, even if such a declaration did uot change a single vote of those who belong to the  diffei-ent labor organizations in Nelson. The Tribune cannot iu  fairness be accused of hostility to labor organizations, although  individual members of labor organizations iu Nelson are bitterly  hostile to The Tribune and its editor, and it is a trifle amusing  to hear these hostile Labor men use the same arguments against  The Tribune and its editor as have been repeatedly used by the  silk-stocking Liberal Mugwumps and Conservative Soreheads  in their denunciations of the same paper and the same man.  Politics makes strange bedfellows, and no stranger bedfellows  could be picked out than woolen-socked Labor men aud silk-  stockinged Mugwumps.  Can Be Had Free.  The most interesting monthly report of  the department of trade and commerce  ever issued has just been published by  that department. Besides containing, a  wealth of information upon trade statistics, accompanying it are five diagrams illustrating at a glance the tremendous  growth of exports in certain commodities  since Confederation to date. There are  also eight valuable reports from 1 he Canadian financial agents in the West Indies,  Australia, England, South Africa, Norway, and France. Another new feature  is a table showing the growth by decades  of the material industries of Canada in  every avenue of progress and development. The report can be had free upon  application to the department at Ottawa.  The Liberals say they do not gerrymander districts when they get a chance. In  dividing British Columbia into seven election districts, the Liberal government at  Ottawa split the provincial riding of Richmond into three parts. One part is tacked  on to the City of Vancouver; another  part to Com ox-Atlin; and the third part  is kept1 in New Westminster, a constituency in which the whole of the riding  should have been kept. The Nelson Tribune  W$-  Pekin, July 27.���The growth of Japanese inflnenco in China since thc upheaval  in  1900 has attracted little attention in  Europo and America,  largely because it  has   developed gradually.   Nevertheless,  it is one of the results of that campaign,  which should bo considered iu connection  with  tho future politics of the fm* east.  Moreover, there are indications that Japan  is striving in every way to advance that  influence with the Chinese government,  and it is even broadly stated that her ultimate object is.to strengthen her own position by au alliance with the celestial empire, using the argument that together  both could resist the aggressions of the  the  western  powers.   Japan's meteoric  rise since she began   to  adopt western  methods, a little more than a century ago,  has impressed many Chinamen, who are  now fully awake to the helplessness of  their country, whicli was so strikingly illustrated by the easy capture of their capital.   As au oriental people, who understand the Chinese as no Eiu*opean people  can, and as only the Asiatic Russians can  hope to do, the Japanese may be able to  make headway in then- undertaking.   It  is certainly true, as the records of the  Japanese legation here show, that a very  large number of Japanese* have invaded  Northern   China  since   the Boxer war.  Not counting the Russians, they are perhaps equal in number to all the Europeans  au<l Americans in New   Chwang,  Port  Arthur, and Dalny.. There are over 1300  at Tien Tsin and more than 500 in Pekin.  Before the troubles   they  were a mere  handful.-   To attain her political objects,  Japan's agents are trying to win tlie confidence of the more powerful Chinese officials,   notably'-tlio   progressive   viceroys  Chang Ti Sung and Yuan Shi Kai.   Several Chinese of late have been induced to  visit  Japan.   They  were   warmly  welcomed aud Japan sought to impress them  with the community of interests between  the two countries.    It is said that Japan  is also seeking to effect a re-organization  of the Chinese army and that  there arc  many Japanese instructors in  the army  who have   superceded' Europeans,   Germans and others, who were in the service  before the Boxer troubles.  Lowell, Mass., July 29.���Twenty-five  killed and 55 injured is a conservative  estimate of the result of an explosion of a  magazine of the United States Cartridge  Company. Shortly after nine o'clock this  morning a report like a crash of thunder,  followed by a roar resembling a 'discharge'  of artillery shook Twekebury, a suburb of  this place, wrecking houses and killing  or maiming the occupants: * The concussion was felt in the surrounding country  and shattered windows twenty miles  away. Boston, .forty miles away,: distinctly felt the shock, and police stations  were besieged with telephone calls as to  the cause. Wild rumors were spread  throughout the surrounding country, and  it was reported that hundreds had beeu  killed or injured. The scene in the city  was one of panic. The streets were  crowded with men, women and children,  rushing about in terror at the rumors of  an earthquake. All the available police  wero rushed to the scene of the accident.  Crowds flocked to the plant of the company, where all was wild confusion.  Buildings had not a whole pane of glass,  dwellings were raised from then- foundations, and many were in a dangerous condition. Four companies of militia were  hurried to the scene to restore and maintain order and protect property. Exaggerated reports as to the number killed  and wounded continued to create excitement. Because of the completeness of  of the wreck, it was impossible to obtain  the exact number of casualties. At noon,  however, a conservative estimate was  made with the result of 25 killed and 55  injured.

San Fhancisco, July 28 ���Troops and  posses organized by the sheriffs are keeping in close touch with the convicts who  broke out of the state prison at Folsom  and thoir prisoners (the guards nnd jail  officials whom they have taken with  them.) Tlie party is moving towards Co-  loma, where tho citizens have armed  themselves aud aro preparing to resist  attack. Tliey have been warned of the  advance of the convicts and will aid the  authorities to put an end to their existence. It i.s reported by the driver of a  stage which passed between Pilot Hill and  Coloma that he saw the convicts walking  close together. They all wore citizen's  clothing and were accompanied hy men  who were evidently residents of the vicinity, whom they had evidently forced to  go with them as guides. A posse from  Placerville, under sheriff Bostwick, wns  reported no far behind them, following  their trail. Tho result of the fight between the convicts and the officers at 7  o'clock last night near Pilot Hill was the  death of Fred Howard, a convict, killed  outright, and the wounding of another  convict, a negro named Seavis. The coroner at Placerville, at the request of the  prison officials, will hold an inquest on  the dead convict. When last seen the  convicts were in citizen's clothing, while  their prisoners wore the stripes. The  latter appeared to be having a hard time  of it, as they were heavily laden with  bundles and ammunition. The latest information is to the effect that another encounter has taken place between the fleeing convicts and then- pursuers, resulting  in the death of John Allison, a convict,  and another whose name is -..unknown.  The posse and militia are closing in on  the desperadoes and it is expected they  will soon be surrounded oh all sides.  Calgary, Alberta, July 28.���Ernest  Cashel, at present under sentence iu  Stoney Mountain penitentiary, is now  charged with the murder of a farmer  named -Belt, who lived on Trail creek,  some miles east of Red Deer. The alleged  murder was committed last autumn.  Cashel is a young man not yet of age. He  came down from Ponoka, aud weile here  passed a worthless check oii' one of the  merchants. Chief English went north  and arrested the young man near his  home. This side of Red Deer he jumped  through a window while tho train was  running at full speed and escaped. For  some weeks there was a merry chase; and  from every .quarter there were reports  that Cashel had been seen, or that he had  committed some desperate act, but it was  Impossible for the authorities to lay then-  hands on him. At one time he was settled at a breed camp out of Calgary. Finally he went a bit too far and was gathered in by the authorities and was sentenced on charges of. forgery and horse  stealing and on another charge. After  his sentence he created a scene, iu the city  driving to the barracks wrapped in his  mother's arms, both weeping audibly.  Shortly after the escape of. Cashel, the  man Belt disappeared. He went suddenly, and there wa.s not the slightest indication of his whereabouts. From the fact  that Cashel had been seen in the district,  and latter he liad in his possession a horse  and saddle'belonging to the missing man  it is beheved that he knew something of  his whereabouts. But nothing in the way  of a charge could be. made until the man  or his body were found. The police  then began to make a search, and a large  reward was offered for the recovery of the  body. A very close search was made of  Trail creek was end to end. Until  last week there was uo trace of the  missing man. Then some people near the  mouth came upon the dead body of a man.  An inquest was held, and a relative of the  missing man positively identified him as  Belt. A bullet was found in his shoulder.  The coroner's jury listened to some of the  evidence which the police had secured and  brought in a verdict of wilful murder.  -The'preliuiinaiy-hearing^wilHbe���hekHn"-  Calgary or Red Deer as soon as Cashel.  can be  brought from the penitentiary.  Cashel originally came from Montana.  i  ,���.���.  New Yohk, July 28.���The news that  Reliance has been selected to defend thc  cup pleased sir Thomas Lipton. Ho said,  "I am very glad to hear this news. Had  I been a member of the New York Yacht  Club committee, I would have voted for  the selection of Relinnco. I believe she is  the best boat. In Shamrock 111, I know I  have the best yacht that ever crossed the  Atlantic to challenge for America's Cup.  If I win I want to compete against the  best boat that America can produce. I  believe that in Reliance they have.a perfect American, boat. I am* confident as  ever I will lift the cup."  London, July 28.���The Goodwood race  meeting, the last fixed society function of  the season, was robbed of some of its customary attractiveness by the absence of  the king, who is in Ireland. The principal race of the day, tho Steward's Cup,  (threo sovereigns) added to a handicap  sweepstakes of ten sovereigns each, four-  year-olds and upwards, 5 furlongs aud 134  yards, which brought but a field of 21  horses, was won by Dumbarton Castle;  Nabob was second, and Lablizon third.

Rome, July 30.���The picture presented  by the procession of cardinals in violet  dress and red caps bordered with ermine,  supported by noble guards in scarlet uniforms with drawn swords, the scene being  softened by thc clouds of incense and the  chapel resounding with the strains of the  incomparable Sistiue choir singing "Libera Me Domino" was impressive. In the  church of Rome today began the offering  of prayers to the holy ghost to assist and  enlighten the cardinals to choose the right  uian to sit in the chair of St. Peter. During the conclave the blessed sacrament  will be exposed in several churches for  the special prayers of the faithful with  the same object in view. The-mayor of  Carpineto, the birthplace of pope Leo,  who proposed to erect with local contributions a monument to pope Leo on top of  the Lepini Mounts surrounding the village  of Carpineto, finding that his project was  thecked by the large amount of money  cequired, intends to make international  rribute to the late pope and will ask all  countries to join in the movemeut. People  now recalling a prophecy which at the  time it was made produced considerable  tallc among the superstitious, who held it  ' to be an indication of who was to be the  next pope. Many years ago the late cardinal Parocchi, who was not then even a  bishop, one day met an old woman in the  country. She was a typical witch in appearance and planted herself before Parocchi, saying "The bishop of Santa Ru-  fina will be the next pope."

Dowd  chased him through a back yard and was  almost upon the young thief when the  boy turned and fired two shots.  Dowd fell fatally wounded and sergeant  Vogt who had joined in the chase was not  far behind Dowd and saw him fall. The  boy fired a shot at him but it went wide.  Vogt went' to assist Dowd and the boy  escaped.

Captain Nice claims that unless the depredations are stopped, the Pribyloff islands  seals will disappear iu a few years.

McDowell, secretary. ^^^^^  Camborne Miner; '2fith: ' 'One hundred'  and sixty-two'applications to be placed on  the voters list-have been taken so far at  Camborne. It is estimated that before the  list closes on August 14th the applications-  hero will number ;250."  Robert Grant, a partner of Louis  Mounce, the late member, is likely to run  in the Conservative interest in Comox  riding, though Mr. Manson of Union Bay  may be the man.   In the city of New Westminster 1305  had registered up to Friday evening, and  the district ridings stood: Richmond 50'J,  Delta 495, Dewdney 484.  It is expected that' J. L. Atkinson of  Sumas will be the Conservative standard  bearer for the riding Of Chilliwack.  Samples Bring Good Figures.  According to the Trout Lsike Topic, a  newspaper published but a few miles distant from the new v. Poplar Creek camp,  gold ore from Poplar creek is so rich that  spcciuient_seUfor ahunckeddollnrs apeice..  It says:. " Yesterday morning Orange  Hamilton arrived in Trout Lake from  Poplar creek with several .samples of  quartz which have created a sensation in  the camp from their richness. One specimen now on exhibition at the Tront Lake  hotel, is about 10 inches square and in  one place for half the breadth of a palm  it is almost covered with gold in small  nuggets. Another specimen which is  about the size of a mini's list to till appearances i.s more than i.-uu-'-iutrtur pun; gold.  In fact it i.s such a fine sample that one of  the owners refused *?J00 for it.  "Ou tlie Lucky .luck, the property fr   which this iininensi-ly rich ore has been  taken, there are no less thau four fissure  veins which cross a formation ol'imrphyry  at about right angles. These veins have  been traced clear across the property anil  all contain free gold.  "Somo of Ihe quartz has in he panned  to get colors and this method has always  liecii successful in showing values when  the gold was not visible to the naked eye.  All who have seen J lie pn>i>erty, and  among them are men who are conservative almost to the verge of pessimism, say  that it is out! of the richest gold properties  ever discovered. Certainly then; is no  gainsaying the value of tlie specimens  mined'from tho vein and which passed  from hand to hand in town yesterday.  "Unfortunately there has been much  written of the new camp which has been  grossly exaggerated, causing mining men  to Ionic ou thc camp as a boom one with  no bottom to it, but recent developments  and the convincing evidence of the metal  in huge chunks of quart/, mined from the  vein proves that while some exaggeration  has been indulged in there is no question  but that the realities arc quite sufficient  to place the Poplar Creek cainpamongthe  lirst of the gold camps of the future.  "The Lucky Jack group, the ('old Park  of (Jilbert and Mari-uis, the locations of  Frank Carlson and partners���extensions  of the Cold Park vein���till have showings  of free gold, so thai it is apparent that the  deposits of gold tire wide spread and have  an assured future before them."
