Nearly  every point entitled to delegates was represented, which shows  that the supporters of the party are not confined to one locality  or to one section of the riding. A farmer was down from Fire  Valley, a miner from the Silver King, a hotelkeeper and farmer  from Creston, a log scaler from Salmo, a lawyer from Ymir, a  ranchman from Willow Point, a merchant from Trail, a prospector from Hall siding, and a sprinkling of miners, ranchmen,  and prospectors from other places. There was rivalry for the  nomination, the partisans of each candidate claiming exceptianal  strength for their individual favorites. The Trail delegates  were" solid for the candidate from their little city, claiming for  him, man}' years legislative experience in the Northwest. The  Ymir delegates had a candidate, who they claimed had exceptional popularity in that particular section of the riding. Other  delegates claimed that neither the Trail man nor the man  favored by the Ymir contingent could make the best fight  against the nominee of the Liberal party.  The convention was called to order about half past two, aud  George F. Martin of Trail was voted to the chair, aud R. R.  Lowe of Willow Point made secretary. After holding a consultation with his friends, D. F. Jelly of Trail decided not to allow  his name to be placed in nomination. John J. Burne of Ymir  placed Harry Wright of Nelson in nomination and L. A. Snyder  of Erie seconded it. John R. Reilie of the, Silver King mine  named John "Houston" aiid"' the nomination was "secohded"by"J."  A. Kelly of Fairview. A ballot was taken aud resulted in 15  for Wright and 12 for Houston.

[Associated l'ress to The Kvening Tribune.]  San Fhancisco, August 15.���According to tho official couut, ten thousand people viewed the contest between Corbett  aud Jeffcries. Tho gross receipts amounted to ��(!_,'340, of this Jeffries receives .*588,-  728, while Corbett gets ��10,510. There  was practically very little money bet on  tlie light at the local pool rooms, but the  heaviest money wagered was by friends  of Jeffries, who came from southern California to see tlie champion win. Nearly  all the money went at odds of 2 to 1 on  Jeffries. Tlie reason given for so little  betting is generally conceded to be that  the betting publio had very little conli-  dciic:u in Corbett.  San Francisco, August 14.���Tho big  light is over and Jeffries retains tho championship. In the tenth round of a hard  fought battle Corbett's second, Tommy  llyiui, threw up the sponge after the ex-  cliampion had been severely punished by  the boilermaker. c After being nearly  knocked out, Corbett made a plucky attempt to continue the fight, but a second  of the champion's battering ram punches  put him completely out of business, and  his seconds wisely admitted defeat.  The complete story as told by tlie bulletins from the ringside follows:  Thc crowd gathered early. The plain  people were in line when the galleries  opened at 0 o'clock, and it did not take  long to lill the upstairs section of the pavilion. In the street where the main entrance is located great throngs gathered,  while si big ��� force*., of policemen kept the  sidewalks clear and the long Hues which  were formed 011 either side of the doorway were overflowing with people.  The pavilion had been laid out in circular fashion, and the arrangements are  such that it looks as if there will be no  confusion in seating. The size of the  riag-attracts ���attention; it being' niach  larger than the one used iu local contests.  It is fully 24 feet square and as smooth as  a billiard table. It is well padded with  felt, over which is stretched a mat of  brown canvas. The brown mat has been  thoroughly dusted with powdered white  rosin.  The feature of the gathering is a pugilistic party, giveii by chief Wietinan of the  San Francisco police. He has as guests  upwards of a dozen chiefs of polico from.  California cities and points beyond and  also a number of sheriffs.  The lirst preliminary bout, between  Harry Sheridan and Jack Smith, at 118  pounds, ended after six rounds of hard  lighting, in a draw.  The second event of thc evening was  between Jack Evans and Jerry Fairbanks  at 120 pounds, and was won by Evans.  By the time the ring was cleared of the  preliminary lighters the big pavilion was  packed from end to end. It could hardly  be csdled a sea of faces, but there were  tiers and tiers of them rising on all sides.  Jt_wasJjcyondaLdoubt��tho-banner-guther--  ing so far as San Francisco pugilistic  events is concerned.  Jeffries came along shortly after i): 1*5.  He was in his ring costume, black trunks  and American.' flag. He was loudly  cheered. Corbett came right after him  clad in a long, light-colored bath robe.

When  Billy Jordan introduced Corbett there wtis  tumultuous applause. Champion Jeffries  received a similar greeting as he shook  hands with friends through the ropes.  When Corbett'tlirew off his bath robe,  Jeffries set his head and eyed him across  thc ring. The hue of Corbett's flesh was  pallid and in comparison with those of the  champion, his legs seemed like pipe  shanks. He suffered in every way in  physical comparison. Corbett received  plenty of encouragement from persons  close to the ring who cried out, "You  can't ,'lose, Jim."  They stepped forward for the lirst  round at 9 :80.

SATUBDAY, AUGUST 15, 1903  It takes time and a great amount of  kicking to secure what every section of  the coantry is entitled to, that is, good  mail facilities.   The Crow's Nest railway  has been in operation five years, yet yesterday was the first time a Sunday mail  'was ever received over it; but from this  time on there will be a daily mail service  "oii the Crow's Nest road. For over a year  there has been a rail and steamboat service between Nelson and Trout Lake, yet  the mails between the two points are sent  around via Revelstoke,  part of the way  'over a wagon road.   Travellers and express and freight leave Nelson for Trout  Lake'at half -past two o'clock in the af-  noon, and are at Trout Lake the same  evening.   A letter from Nelson for Trout  Lake leaves Nelson at 6:40 p.m. and goes  through  to  Revelstoke,   reaching   that  place'in 28 hours.   It  lays  there  over  night, and the next day it is carried back  the same route which it came the day before, and reaches Trout Lake on the evening of the second day from Nelson.   If  the Nelson Liberal Association'would devote just one meeting to discussing adequate mail facilities between Nelson and  /Trout Lake, and pass a resolution demanding the establishment of a mail route be-  7 'tween Nelson and Trout Lake, and wire  th** resolution to W. A. Galliher, M.P.,  Ottawa, the chances are the new camp at  Poplar Creek would get a postoffice and  the people of Nelson, Kaslo, Trout Lake,  and Ferguson facilities they are entitled  to.   Grits, get a move on!  "Thl^CraSbrcM^He-ard says: "JoEiT  " Houston, of the Nelson Tribune, has  " brought forth the time worn bogie man,  " tariff for the farmer, and is endeavor-  " ing to infuse it with the breath of life.  " Houston is a politician, first, last, and  " all the time, and is willing to sacrifice  " his Fhonest convictions to pamper to  " political expediency. He is a reader  " and a close observer and, perforce, must  " know that tlie old theory that thc tariff  " is a benefit to tht* farmer bus been ex-  " ploded long ago. Tlie Republican  " party of the States fooled tlio fanner on  " that proposition l'<��r years. In tinns,  " however, the fanner Ix-came intelligent  " and the clap-trap argument had to be  " dropped." If the contention of the Herald is right, why litis not the Liberal  party had the courage of its convictions?  It is a Free Trade party b_* conviction and  a Protection party in practice, just ns is  the Democratic party ii* the United States.  If Free Trade would be such a good thing  for the farmer, is it not strange that the  farming provinces of Canada and tlie,  great farming states of the United States  should send so many Protectionists to parliament aud to congress? The Cranbrook  Herald in saying that " John Houston  " sacrifices his honest convictions to  " political expediency " is probably not  aware that John Houston is a printer and  not a politician, and, judging from tbe  Herald, printers are always looking for  the side of the broad on which the butter  is.    The employees of the Canadian Pacific  railway, as has been their custom for  many years, hold au annual picnic, and  these picnics have been great successes.  This year the picnic is to be held at Rossland. The members of the Rossland Miners' Union and tlie citizens of the town  joined in extending the invitation, and  promised to do everything possible to  make the picnic a success.   The date fixed  for holding it (the Siith and 20th of this  mouth) insures splendid weather at Rossland, and the picnic promises to be a  splendid success. But Rossland lias two  milling companies, both employing a large  number of men, that are apparently managed by men who are as lacking in public spirit as they are short-sighted. The  manager of the War Eagle and Center  Star mines, so it is said, has given the  "tip," and the men working in these  mines have decided to work on the days  the picnic is to be held. If there is a lack  of good feeling between the union miners  and the non-union miners at Rossland,  the feeling is not likely to be made less  strained by the action of the War Eagle  and Center Star management.  No time should be lost in making representations to W. A. Galliher, M. P., at  Ottawa, of the necessity for a postoffice at  both Poplar Creek and Gerrard, and for  the establishment of a mail route between  Nelson and Trout Lake. It is useless to  send communications to the postoffice officials; "Big Bill" is the man, and the  men to urge him on are the men who are  doing candidate Taylor's campaign  work.    Grits, do your duty!  There is said to be irreconcilable differences in the rank and file of the Liberal-  Conservative Party in Nelson. If there  is any such feeling it is not the result of  party-line politics, but of municipal politics. The municipal politics of Nelson  need not be injected into everything, from  business to church attendance, and those  who insist on airing their individual  likes and dislikes on every occasion are  not likely to have any great political influence either at home or abroad. The  Liberals of Nelson have nominated a candidate, who, if elected, will be able to  hold his own in the councils of the party.  The Liberal-Conservatives, if they hope  to either succeed in winning the election  or to have influence in the party councils, must also nominate a strong man.  If the Liberal-Conservatives wish to follow the lead of politicians who live at the  Coast, then they should nominate for  their candidate a man who has no enemies.  Such a candidate might be elected, but  what use would he be after he was elected?  ''Alderman Selous at the last meeting of  the city council suggested that Nelson  -have-an^ArborDayr-Thesuggestioiris^ir  good one. Nelson is a city of homes, and  the streets on which the homes are would  be all the more attractive were they lined  with shade trees. While there may be  no law, either Dominion or provincial,  setting apart a day as Arbor Day, as there  is in tlie United Statas, municipalities in  Britisli Columbia have tho right under  the Municipal Clauses Act to pass n bylaw "for planting shade trees along roads  "and streets, and for protecting the  "same." The city council might puss a  bylaw making a certain date Arbor Day,  leaving the rest to the public spirit of" the  people.           The city after a long wait secured title  to the water front between Ward street  and the eastern boundary of the city. The  reasons the cit3" gave the province, in order to secure title, was that the waterfront should be at the disposal of tho city  so that manufacturing industries could be  dealt with directly. The property i.s valuable and it should not bo leased indiscriminately to every applicant. An application now before the council should be well  considered before definite action is taken.  The owners of launches arc asking for a  lease ol* the water front between the sawmill's ground and Cherry street, with the  privilege of driving piles on two sides of  the area leased. It' the owners of launches  must have a place to moor their craft, let  ti portion of the water front suitable be  reserved for them; but it -yvould be most  inadvisable to grant a lease to niryono for  such a purpose. The property interests  of the city on the water front should be  kept so that the city can have a free, hand  to utilize it to the best advantage, and  the fewer leases granted the better it will  lie for the city.  Hail via Nelson.  Lardeau Eagle, Sth : Three months ago  the  postal authorities were reported to  have promised a tri-weokly mail .service  over the Lardo branch of the C.P.R. from  Nolson to Ferguson, but we hear nothing  more about it and evidently the department believes the people of the Lardeau  will let the matter rest here until next  year; but the people are suffering too  much hardship and loss to permit the  matter to drop so readily. As it stands  our mail till goes and comes through the  Revelstoko post office, and our express  freight goes and comes via Nelson, and  the arrangement is very unsatisfactory  and works great hardship. One can take  the boat and go to Nelson and return in  two days, while it takes live days for a  letter to go and a reply to come from  Nelson. Since the Poplar creek district  has opened up the need for a mail service  from Nelson is much increased. Deals  arc pending and business beiiigattemptcd,  yet it is most unsatisfactory to be unable  to send a letter, and expensive in that it  involves the necessity of a visit iu many  cases where a letter would answer. Why  the department is so slow in this matter  we are unable to find out, but it is hoped  that a move will be made soon.  Will Not Stop Work.  Rossland World, 10th: "It is reported  on good authority that on Saturday last  the head officemnn of the War Eagle and  Centre Star was of the opinion that the  men employed in the CJoodorhaui mines  would not wish to close down during the  celebration. On Sunday a ballot was  taken aud his words were completely verified. Most extraordinary coincidence! It  is explicable on the understanding that  the men were thoroughly posted as to the  feeling of the office. This would have  been of little use had the ballot been taken  properly. So far was this from the case  that it is stated a list of the men was  drawn up and each asked the question  point blank. Fearing the result of expressing an opinion contrary to the known  wishes of the office the employees naturally, unless they wished to ask for their  discharge, declared their desire of working through the general holiday. Rather  than believe that the employees of the War  Eagle and Centre Star, the majority of  whom are loyal Rosslauders, were, guilty  of this sin against the community, the  World will place this foul and petty act  at the doors of the management. Every  other mine in the camp will close down,  the War Eagle and Centre Star will remain in their domineering and jealous  isolation. The World declines to believe  that the men are responsible, and places  the responsibility where it belongs, namely on tho shoulders of E. B. Kirby and C.  V. Jenkins. These are the men who  want to run .every thing, social and mining, in the camp and this is their fitness."  Got a Good Sendoff.  The friends of "Dave" Rutherford met  last night at the Hume hotel and gave  him a good sendoff. The members of the  the lacrosse team were present in 'force,  and their manager, George E. McLaughlin, in presenting Mr. Rntherford with a  gold watch aud locket, the latter studded  with diamonds aud pearls, delivered the  present after making the following speech:  "A manager of a lacrosse team can have  no more pleasant duty assigned him than  what has been assigned me tonight. The  players on the Nelson lacrosse team, since  I became its manager, have all striven to  do their best, and none of them have striven harder than the one we assemble here  tonight to honor. It gives me great pleasure ou behalf of the Nelson lacrosse team  and the boys of the city to present you,  Mi-. Rutherford, with this watcli and  locket as a slight token of their regard for  you as a lacrosse player and esteem as a citizen. In leaving Nelson to take up duties  in Winnipeg, a city noted for its lovers of  outdoor sports, we commend you to the  lacrosse players of that city, and hope  that in your new home you will be successful and have all the pleasure that is  coming to you. Our loss is Winnipeg's  gain and oiu- only condolence is the knowledge of your personal advancement."  A. R. Poole was present on behalf of  the boys who are not lacrosse players and  Jiackedj^-rMii.^McLaughlin^s^speech-With.  another. "Dave" left on this morning's  boat en route for Winnipeg, and he goes  with the good wishes of many friends in  Nelson.         A Scotchman's Friendly Offer.  At the Portsmouth luncheon to the  American squadron, United States consul  Swalui, of Southampton, who was stationed at Montevideo during the war with  Spain; told the following story: "They  were expecting the Oregon during the  Spanish-American war, and they also expected that she would be short of coal.  Ho could not buy so much as a pound of  fuel, but one evening a Scotchman came  to his door and said: 'You want coal!'  The consul replied that he never wanted  a drink as badly us he wanted con) at that  moment. The Scotsman hud no power to  sell, but he pointed out that he hnd eight  hundred tons ou board, and said lie pitied  the American captain who could not put  his ship alongside, take out the bags of  coal, and then 'cut the painter.' It so  happened that the Oregon did not call,  but such an act of friendship which defied  law and order touched his heart."  Discretion.  An officer in the army, who is very  much disliked by his men, was returning  to barracks recently, when he slipped into  some deep water. A private in his regiment happened to see the occurrence, and  with great difficulty pulled the officer out.  The latter was very profuse in his thanks,  and asked his rescuer how ho could reward him. "Thc best way you can re-  wardme, sir," replied the private, "is to  say nothing about it." "Why, my good  fellow," said the astonished officer, "why  do yon wish me to say nothing about it?"  "Because if the other fellows knew I  pulled you out, you can depend upon it,  they'd "get even on me by promptly throwing me into the water."  Cai'k Town, August 12.���Princess Rad-  eziwill, who was sentenced to two ye;u\s'  imprisonment by the supreme court on  April *S0th, J !)0'3, for forgery in connection with notes purporting to have been  endorsed by the late Cecil Rhodes, has  been liberated from prison and has started  for England.  GOLD  Poplar Creek, the scene of the recent  gold discoveries, wtis swarmed over yesterday by excursionists Irom Nelson,  Kaslo, and way points on Kootenay lake,  the Canadian Pacific running a special  boat which enabled sight-seers to take in  the now finds and get back home on tlio  evening of tne same day. There were upwards of "00 mining fever patients from  Nelson, and as many more boarded the  boat at Knslo. It was an ideal day for an  outing and the party reached the upper  end of Kootenay lake in high spirits.  Here they got a tonic for the mining  fever by which they were afflicted by the  way of glimpses of the old townsites of  Lardo and Argenta, which ten years ago  were keen rivals for the mining boom in  the Duncan river country, which failed to  keep its date. The former is now buried  tinder 40 feet of wash which swept over  the old townsite during the freshet of  1S94, but a new town has sprang up to  the north of Lardo river, and is now receiving attention chiefly as a stopping  place on the road to the new discoveries  of Poplar creek. Across the lake Argenta  is playing the role of a deserted village,  and its sole inhabitant holds undisputed  sway alike over the townlots of credulous  investors of J89;M and the abandoned  railway grade whicli skirts the upper  shore of the lake.  From Lardo the journey to Poplar creek  was continued over thc C.P.R. branch  line, which connects Trout Lake with the  great waterways to the south, the scene  of the gold strike being about 18 miles  from Lardo as the railway line runs. A  first-class coach, two box cars aud a  caboose were brought into requisition to  move the excursionists, and Poplar creek  was reached about 1 o'clock.  The land along the Lardo river falls  chiefly into the selections made by the  K. & S. railway company, but in the rush  to get the camp started, those who desired to do business iu it have squatted  where it suited them best and will take  their chances with the railway company's  laud agent who will shortly be on thc  ground. At present the camp is wearing  its swaddling clothes and consists of an  hotel, two buildings which promise to  blossom out into general stores, aud a  number of prospectors' tents scattered  along the river bank, or hidden in among  tlie big timber which clothes the entire  section up to au elevation of 1500 or 2000  feet above the level of the river. Just  what the future of the camp will be can  be more safely predicted in the course of  a few months than at present.  The excursionists were given f our hours  in which to see the strikes that have been  been made in the camp. The show claim  of the camp is the Lucky Jack. This  property is but a few minutes walk from  the railway track and the excursionists  made straight for it when the train pulled  into the camp. The owners profess to  have about ten distinct veins on the property, on six of which they have free gold  showing, but the}" have done nothing but  surface scraping, and on "the big showing  on the property they have done nothing.  In view of this the showing must be regarded as one of the most sensational in  the history of mining iu Britisli Columbia. A little to the south of Poplar creek  rises a sheer bluff, which appears to be  about 50 feet high, and from the crown of  thiB bluff for a distance of about 40 feet  there outcrops a ledge of white quartz,  standing out boldly iu the face of the  bluff in a manner one would think would  challenge the atteution and investigation  of the first prospector that came that way.  But it did not. Where it outcrops tho  ledge looks to be about two feet wide but  the owners say its average width i.s nearer  four feet. There may be a question as to  the width of the ledge but there can be ho  question but that tlie quartz exposed is  the richest that has been found iu Kootenay. Between the bluff from which the  ledge is showing and the river there has  -been a-rock-slido,=-biit-through thisandon^  down to the creek there are disclosed out-  croppings of quartz. These may be large  pieces of float or thoy may bo outcrop-  pings of thc ledge, but it will require work  to determine which. The great body of  the excursionists wero compelled to content themselves with looking at a number  of boulders which had been dug out of  the rock slide referred to, a small boy  with a big gun keeping the curious back  from tne place where the ledge outcrops  in the bluff. The boulders, however, wore  interesting, thero being a great deal of  free gold showing wherever the rock was  broken and these were promptly seized by  tljo oxctu'sfonists as mementoes of their  trip.  There is all kinds of exaggerated talk as  to what the owners of the Lucky Jack  property arc going to do. They have a  big thing if they (jo not uncover another  pound of ore than what, is showing, but  there is enough hot air jn tlie camp just  now to make tho stranger giddy, and any  old thing in tlje way of (marts* is readily  given a value of $100 to the toi).  The Lucky Jack is by no menus the  only good thing that has been found in  the camp. There are a number of others,  some of which, m. the opinion of good  miners, are held in much higher regard  than the very showy Lucky Jack, and  what is of equal importance, the entire  section is being closely prospected. There  are at the present time upwards of 800  prospectors working along Cascade, Poplar, Rapid, Tenderfoot and Lake creeks,  and they are said to be meeting, with  every encouragement, so that there is  ever3r likelihood of busy times in that section of the Trout Lake district for many  months to come.  Tom Collins, the well-known verse-  building prospector of Kootenay, who has  been in' the Poplar creek district for the  past week, had a narrow escape from  drowning on Sunday. Tom had been  over on the north sido of the Lardo river,  and in order to avoid the necessities of  walking a mile through the bottom lands  to a log jam crossing, he undertook to  ford the stream. When Tom got nbout  J00 feet into the stream the current carried him off his feet. This did not bother  him very much, and he made up his mind  that he would swim tho balance of tho  distance. In this he made a mistake, as  the currant "swept him alomr like a cork  in spite of his best efforts.   With a bend I  in the stream Tom saw that he was to go  up against a short log jam. He made his  calculation as to how he was going to get-  on top of the jam, but again the current  fooled him and he weut under the jam.  He was very much the worse for wear  when he came out on the down stream  side and too weak to make much of a  fight against it second jam which he could  make out a short distance below him.  When he went under the second jam Tom  had just about lost consciousness,' but with  rare good luck ho came from under the  second jam without getting caught on  anything. He wns then being swept  down stream without any effort on his  part when his feet struck a sand bar. He  was too weak to stand, but the touching  of the bar put new life in him. Ahead of  him was a third jam, and as he was  swept up to it Tom managed to catch a  small log aud drag himself safely on top.  When he got out he lost consciousness.  Wheujie came too he found that tlio jam  he was on wa.s thc one he should have  walked to in order to cross flic river, and  he hoofed it, back to camp the sorest, prospector in the district. He says Sunday's  experience is by long odds the closest call  he ever had for his life and he won't attempt to ford the Lardo any more.  Tom Bennett is up from Salmo and  brings tidings of a strike that has bee*;  made on Sheep creek byF. P. Drummond  The location is a new one, and is not  more than 2000 feet from tho Yellowstone  mine, and only a short distance from the  Queen, on whicli William Waldie is now  at work with a force of men. The ledge  is 2}i feet 'vide aud holds that width for  750 feet, but it can be traced for nearly  two miles. The ore is free milling,  gold being visible with the naked eye.  Prospectors acquainted with the country  say that the free-gold belt extends to the  Bayonue group of claims, on the Koot-  eua3* lake slope, a distance of ten miles,  and that the country has not been prospected. These gold finds, scattered as  they are, should attract hundreds of prospectors once more to Kootenay, which is  recognized as the best poor man's country  on earth.  G. W. Stead of Philadelphia has bonded  a number of claims near the Granite mine,  six or seven miles southeast of Nelson.  One of them is the Star, owned \>y John  Biomberg and the Johnson brothers,  Oscar and Mike. The bond was for $30,-  000, ten per cent of which was paid in  cash. John P. Swcdberg i.s the owner of  the other claims, and it is reported his  bond is for $] 5,000, of which ten per cent  was cash. All these claims are on the divide between Sandy and Eagle creeks,  about a mile and a half from thc Granite  miue, and the ore is all free milling gold.  Building a Copper Smelter.  Paul Johnson, who built the Hall Minos  smelter at Nelson and the smelter at  Greenwood is in Nelson for a two-days'  stay. He is down from Prince of Wales  Island, where he is building a copper  smelter.   In an interview he said:  "We have a large force of men at work  on the new smelter at the Mamie mine,  owned by the Brown-Alaska company on  Prince of Wales Island. Five or six buildings arc now in course of construction.  The new smelter, which will handle all  the ore from the Mamie, will be in operation by the first of the j*ear. The smelter will havo a capacity at the beginning  of about 400 tons a day, but, we hope in  time to increase the capacity to 2000 tons  daily. Excavations aro being made and  grading is being done for buildings. An  office,assay building, warehouse and blacksmith shop are building. In two weeks a  sawmill will bo in operation. Altogether  the investment at the mine and in the  buildings and smelter will amount to $300,-  000. The Mamie mine was openod about  a year ago, but no ore has been shipped  yet. HadlejT is about 2S miles from  Ketchika, Alaska, two days' sail from  Victoria. We are working 70 men. One  of our hardest troubles has been to clear  the ground from timber. Vegetation is  wonderfully dense ou the island, because  of tho mild climate and tho intense rainfall. There is a solid forest, of trees out of  which we had to excavate a space large  enough to place the smelting works. Tlie  trees range from 2 to J1 feet in diameter.  A crosscut iu the new lower tunnel of the  .Mamie-shows-tho-ore-to^be^f'eet^wider  raugiug from 7 to 8 per cent copper, with  perhaps $1 in gold and silver. It is of  equal size with the wonderful deposits in  the Boundary, and has the same self-fluxing qualities, but it carries three or four  times as much value. It will make one  of the greatest copper mines in the world.  Ours is not the only big thing on tlie  island. The Crackerjack is a free gold  proposition whicli. promises to be a wonder. Thero i.s from 8 to 17 feet of high  grade gold ore there, and Charles Lane,  the San Francisco millionaire who made  a fortune in Nome, is developing it with  a crew of 70 men. It has beon under development, for about a year. We expect,  to contract for about 100 tons of its silicious ores daily as a flux with our copper,  but in addition the Crackerjack will have  a stamp mill of its own."  Mr. Johnson's family have been living  in Nelson since he went to Prince of Wales  Island, but. he intends taking them with  him on his next trip, which will be in  about a month. Paul has many friends  Nelson, nnd none of them will be envious  if he has got info a good thing,  A Railway War Ended,  Blairmore Times, Sth: "An amicable  settlement has been arrived at, pending  the decision of the courts, in the dispute  over the possession of the Grassy Mountain railway, between contractors Poupore & McVeigh aud the Lille collieries.  The road is now being operated by the  company, and the much needed material  for the coke ovens is being rushed up to  the site selected for them, a short distance  above No. 1 camp. These ovens are what  are known as the Solvey oven, the material for their construction coming from the  old country, and they will be the first to  be built iu Canada. Development work  at these collieries has been under way for  some timo and now that the railway "is in  operation there should be nothing to stop  the heavy shipments of* co 1 to the market."

HUMOR IN POLITICS  There are amusing incidents in politics, just as there are iu  other games, and the successful politician must be more or less  of a humorist; he must not take everything seriousry. Last  week the Independent Labor Party held a public meeting, and  it was fairly well attended. Among others who attended was  David Woods, a man who has lived in British Columbia for over  fort}*- 3**ear's, and who mined in Cariboo in the earl}' days. He  has been a resident of Nelson for seven or eight 3'ears, and  works as a day laborer ou the streets, and the city has no more  faithful man 011 its payroll. He attended the meeting of the  Independent Labor Part}', and when the announcement was  made that only those who signed the platform of the party  could vote or take part in the proceedings, Mr. Woods advance I  to the secretary's table to sign his name. The secretary refused to allow him to do so, sa3'iug: "You are an avowed Hons-  tonite, aud you have no right to sign this platform." The  secretary of that meeting is an avowed Ta3'lorite, 3'et he signed  the platform; and took a very prominent part in the proceedings  of the meeting. Although Mr. Woods did not vote at the  meeting, his friends did, and the}' outvoted the secretaiy and  his friends on every vote., That is where the humor comes in;  but the secretaiy can't be made see it.  SPECIAL ADVERTISING^  The merchants of Nelson should do a little special advertising, now that there is a stampede to Poplar Creek. Hundreds  of men are daily reading the reports of the richness of Poplar  Creek's gold finds, and man}- of them will be in on the stampede. The bulk of these men will come from the States, and  most of them will pass through_3p_____________Nelson's .merchants-.  have the supplies needed in a new mining camp, and the}'  should make the fact known. A hundred dollars or so spent in  advertising in Spokane will bring hundreds in return.    Tiy it!  We earrv 11 very largo  Stuck of ____  The Latest Patterns.'.

Hy the   GKO. C. TUNSTALL, JR.  District Mgr., Nelson, B.C. The Nelson Tribune  . Wilmor Outcrop, 0th: "It i.s quite probable that, politics in this ridiiif? will be in-  terestiiiK within a week. Tlio Conservatives hold a meeting Saturday evening to  select delegates to attend u convention ut  Golden on the Kith to nominate a candidate. This will stir up the Liberals to do  something. A rumor is afloat that W. C.  Wells will come out as im independent  candidate, but many Liberals state thoy  do not believe the riiinoi* at all. Tho rumor is general and causes uneasiness and  as The Outcrop reporter has just returned  from a trip where there wns a good opportunity ot* si/.ing-up the situation we  can say the general feeling favors party  lines. ' A few people believe that if Mr.  Wells decides to run independent that thc  Conservatives will run a Conservntive-  Litbor candidate or give thoir snpport to a  straight Labor man, but the latter is not  at all likely and tho former is very improbable. However, some definite action  will soon bo taken." ��  An ad���ourued meeting of the Liberal-  Conservatives of Pairview was held last,  night to elect a delegate to attend the nominating convention ot" the party for  Ymir riding. H. Fotherby was voted to  the chair and C. J. Robertson made secretary. After an interchange of views,  Duncan Darraugh nominated J. A. Kelly  i'or delegate, and the nomination was seconded by George Keyes. No other name  was placed in nomination nnd the chair  declared Mr. Kelly the delegate-elect, It  wtis decided not to give him any instructions a.s to whom he should support. Mr.  Kelly i.s tin old Outario politician, and has  * resided in Britisli Columbia, for five years,  and is engaged iu selling fruit trees.  From reports received today, the public  meetings held on Saturday at the various  places in Ymir rihiug, to elect delegates  to the Conservative convention, were well  attended. At Trail five delegates were  elected, and instructed to vote for Mr.  .Telly of Trail for first choice. A few reports have come from outside ridings.  Cranbrook elected five delegates to attend  the convention iii Cranbrook riding and  'instructed them to vote for Thomas Cavan. Fort Steele elected four, and instructed them to vote for J. A. Harvey.  The contest will be close between Cavan  aud Harvey.         The Campaigner Liar is abroad, and he  has his headquarters at the oflice of the  the Nelson Daily News. On Sunday the  Daily News reported that an enthusiastic  Liberal ineetiug_\vas hely in Fairview to  elect delegates to attend the Liberal nominating convention for Ymir riding.  No one attended the meeting and the  delegates were appointed pro forma, The  Conservatives of the same sbburb held a  meeting the same night, and it was attended by four good citizens; but tliey  adjourned their meeting until tomorrow  night, when they will elect their delegates.    At the Liberal convention at Cumberland, Comox riding, held on the (5th, F.  McB. Young of Nanaimo received the  nomination on the second ballot. On  the first ballot, Mi*. Young received 11  votes, Dr. Millard 9 votes, and C. H. Lu-  grin ii votes. On the second ballot the  votes were: Young, 14; Millard, 9; Ltt-  griu 2. On motion the nomination of  Mr. Young was then made unanimous.  Young is a lawyer.  At a meeting of the Liberal-Conservative Association at Duncans ou Friday,  with over GO members present, Ernest M.  Skinner was unanimously requested to  stand for Cowichan riding, and Mr.  Skinner has expressed his willingness to  make thc race.    The newspaper at Sandon has changed  its name. It. is now named the Standard.  It declares that politically it will be independent, with leaning toward the Conservatives.    Preposterous Americans.  ���A-pseudonjTinons.iournalistr"who*-calls"  himself "Montague Vernon Pousouby,  Esq.," has written a most amusing volume on his American observations, which  he calls "The Preposterous Yankee." Mr.  "Ponsonby" declares in his preface that  he is "a candid friend of the United States,  not an enemy," yet lie admits thnt some  of tlie things he has written sound so disagreeable that he is aim at; ashamed to  have penned them. "L" .de Sam," he  says, "paints himself a.s a ....'. ���..mvii man  with whiskers. This i.s a fallacy. He is  a raw, gawky youth, and lie might better  lie called 'Nephew Sam'." After declaring iu his opening chapter that "tlie  is free only in the Declnnitinn of Inde  pendence." tlie writer goes on to describe  in detail the manners and customs of a  Yankee as he found him. Hero is an account of how a business man goes to  lunch in New York:  After he has sat half baked iu his ovenlike ollice for three hours, he suddenly  jumps, up and exhibits all the symptoms  of a madman bent ou escaping from his  cage. With a wild scramble he seizes his  unbrashed hat, puts on an overcoat, made  of a sort of shoddy felt, and, before it is  fairly on, is rushing through the corridors "and yelling for the lift, which has  has just passed his floor, to stop for him.  Half dazed, disheveled, frantic, and hysterical, ho arrives ou the ground floor.  An Englishman who saw this performance wouid be inclined to think the performer was a defaulter escaping with all  the available assets of the bank. Bnt he  would be mistaken. It Is simply the  president of one of the largest financial  institutions iu New  York going out for  ��� his lunch. Like a lion, or other wild  beast, the now thoroughly aroused man  dashes along Broadway. He darts, with  the air of something that is being hunted,  into a sort of cellar, a den that has not.  been ventilated since last summer, in  which pie���the American national dish���  sandwiches, hash, crullers, and all sorts  of viands invented by the dyspepsia doctors' are displayed in large bowls. With  the avidity of a shipwrecked sailor who  has seen no food whatever for at least  three weeks, the banker grasps a handful  of pie, and stuffs it into his mouth. Evidently he is panic-stricken tit the thought  that the pio will be taken from him be  fore he can get away with it. The observer imagines that a cablegram has reached  Wall Street announcing that a blockade  will occur that evening, and by the following day there will be nothing left in  the whole of United States for hungry  bankers to on*.. Having made away with  as much as hewill hold, and packed it into himself very much a.s a comniercial  traveller squeezes three gallons of shirts  and socks into ti two-gallon dress-suit case,  the eyes of (lie banker suddenly bulge out  iu strange alarm. It has occurred to him  thut while he has ��� been gorging himself  the trusted cashier of t he bank has probably bolted with all tlie money. In a  wild way he pays his bill and starts on a  sort of a steeplechase back to his cage.  There, frequently, he iinds, to his satisfaction, that, both the cashier and the  nionev are still there.  Is Laurier to Retire?  There is pertnrbntion in the Liberal  camp. All sorts of rumors tire flying  around. Every Liberal member from  Quebec recently assembled in Mr. Fielding's room aud wore in caucus there with  premier Laurier aud Mr. Fitzpatrick for  nearly two hours. The object of tho meeting, it is said was to consider a proposal  for the retirement of premier Laurier ou  account of ill-health. Lady Laurier is  insisting on her husband quitting political  life, and the great question is whether  tins will be immediately after the present  session of parliament or after the general  elections. French Liberals dread an appeal to the country without Laurier at  their head and they were most emphatic  tonight that he must remain prime minister until after the election. At the caucus the Manitoba school question came up,  incidentally, and sir Wilfrid took the  sense of his followers on the question, urging their acqtiiesence in the proposed policy of " jollying " the minority in Manitoba for another further indefinite period.  Sixteen years ago JohnF. Ward planted  a staked tout in Nelson and opened its first  hotel. Tho tent hotel stood on the ground  now occupied by the court house. Afterwards Mr. Ward built a log hotel on the  ground'On which the new postoflicc building stands. He made money, andinlSSO-  1890 spent it in booms at Fairhaven and  other Puget Sound points. In 189*3 Mi-,  ward was in Kaslo and making money.  In 1S95 he was in the thickest of the swim  at Rossland. Of late he has been living  in Spokane.- Today ho went north on the  Kokanee, en route to Poplar creek, where  ho expects to again be in it. Ward street  is named after John F., and Josephine  street after his wife. Mr. Ward has been  in many a stampede, aud can give pointers. He says Nelson merchants should  got in and advertise that they can furnish  everything in the way of supplies for  prospectors at Spokane prices, as hundreds of men heading this way, do not  know anything about the country, and  many of them ai*e likely to purchase supplies in Spokane through mistake.

C  St. Pi*ti*rsi*UI*u, August 10.���Tim assassination of tbe Russian consul, M.  Rostkovski, at Momistir, the second murder of n Russian consul oflicnil in "M-'ce-  donia witbiu a month, has created intense  indignation here. In reporting die occurrence to the foreign ollicials, tlie Russian  ambassador nt Constantinople telejrraphed  August Sth: "The Russian consul at  Mouastir has fallen the victim of an  atrocious crime. The grand vizier and  tlio Turkish foreign minister have come  to with expressions of regret in the mime  of the sultan. Ferid Pasha, tlie grand  vizier, informed me that tlie assassin was  a gendarme named Hnliuiu, and that he  will be subjected to the severest punishment, and the vnli of Mouastir will be removed from his post." In reply, count  Lamsdorff, the foreign minister, telegraphed to the ambassador, August 9th:  "His majesty Las received a telegram  from the sultan expressing his deep regret at the death of the Russian consul  at Mouastir. When I submitted your  telegram to the emperor, his majesfcj- gave  orders that you should not confine yourself to receiving explanations from the  grand vizier, but should make the most  energetic demands on the Turkish government for real satisfaction and immediate and- exemplary punishment both of  the murderer and all of the military and  civil officers on whom responsibility for  the audacious crime may fall." According to the report made by the official now  in charge of the Russian consul at Mouastir, the murderer is a gendarme. The  consul asked his name, because, in defiance of instructions, the' gendarme did  not salute him. The gendarme thereupon  fired several shots, mortally wounding -the  consul iu the head and hip. The horse  drawing the carriage in which the consul  was riding received two bullets, and shots  were also fired at the coachman.  Albany, August 12.���A gang of workmen today began to dismantle the machine shops of the Boston & Albany railroad at Renssjilaer. wlisiv tlie machinists  are out on strike. Division master mechanic Berry declared that the shop would  be permanently closed, in accordance witli  the ultimatum delivered on Monday (o the  striking machinists. Locil nie.cliauts  heard the news with consternation, as the  removal of tlie shops would be ti serious  blow to thorn. There was no change iu  the-a nitride of I lie strikers todiiv.  London, August 12.���The Times prints  a despatch from Tokio which says that  Korea has granted the Russian Lumber  Company n 20 years' lease of 850 acres at  Youginnpho, with the right to purchase  at reasonable prices all the timber floated  down the Yalu river by Korean subjects,  thereby conferring a practical monopoly  of the lumber in the Yalu valley. Thus  Russia, while opposing the opening of  Wijn, herself obtains free access to the  Yalu valley aud the command of the estuary.  New York, August 12.���The World  says* Justice McColl of the supreme  court g ranted an injunction yesterday re-  straiaiLg the Tiffany studio from altering  wu paintings made by William DeQ. Left-  wich Dodge as decorations for the new  King Edward hotel in Toronto, Ontario,  the injunction to stand until the justice  shall have passed upon the right of Mr.  Dodge to have his paintings remain as he  finished them. Mr. Dodge's paintings  were to be historical, acceptable to the  architect, .and-were to be retouched by  him in Canada. They were approved by  Mr. Lennox, architect of the hotel, and  now Mr. Lennox wants them changed  and refuses to pay the Tiffany studio the  balance of ��80,000 unless a Canadian artist be permitted to change the pictures.  Rome, August 12.���The pope this morning left his apartments for the first time  since his fainting fit yesterday, going for  a drive and walking in the Vatican gardens. He remained in the open air about  two hours and returned to the palace feeling much better. All that remains of yesterday's collapse is a slight feeling of lightness in the head. Doctors Lapptini and  Davenezi visited Pius today, and though  they found him almost entirely recovered  they continued to recommend that he  should take a rest and abstain from all  work. "But this will mean such an accumulation of work that it will kill me  afterwards to eaten up with it," said the  pope in reply.

The Nelson Tribune  also stands for the up-building of  Kootenay as against the up-building of localities in the state of  Washington.

Gilker's*  ������������������������������������������������������������������������������$  Government Ownership.  Victoria Colonist: "Of all thc pleas iu  favor of the Grand Trauk Pacific road, the  plea that it is a step in tlie direction of  the government ownership of railways is  the most nauseating. Government ownership of railways must mean something  apart from the mere payment hy the government for the roadbed. It must mean  something in connection with tlie control  of the traffic; and the service given thc  people. If it has no meaning in relation  to these two things it is absolutely unintelligible. Yet we find there i.s nothing  iu tlie charter whicli differentiates the  Moucton-Winnipeg section of the Grand  Trunk Pacific in its operation from a road  owned by a private company. If another  company wants running rights over the  road it must make terms satisfactory, not  to the government that owns the road hut  to the company which operates it. The  government designates the terminals of  the rails, but not the terminals of thc traffic. The government has no share iu the  returns of the road. It receives a fixed  rental at a lower rate than it can borrow  the money with which to build tlie road,  and even that it only gets after a fixed  term of years. The only advantage the  government gets iu the light of govern  ment ownership is the right to resume the  road in fifty years. There is nothing  else. The government receives no concessions as to the operation of the road  it could not demand from any private  company, and it lies trader tho very great  disadvantage of having the people's money  invested in a road either properly operated or starved, as happens to suit tho convenience of the private company operating the road. It is certainly not government ownership iu any sense in which the  advocates of that principal think it should  be applied.']   Child Slaves in Free America.  The brief life history of Sarah Solomon,  one of the little child slaves of Chicago,  who took her own life at the age of 14, is  oue of the most pathetic ever recorded,  the following tragic story is clipped from  Boyce's Weekly: Drudging from early  morning until night, working day by day  day to earn food for herself and parents,  Sarah Solonian, a 14-year-old child labor  slave, found life's battle to hard for her  frail constitution, and she ended the struggle last night by drinking poison. Though  'the^law^seeks'W  dor age, Sarah Soloman had been forced  to work in a laundry. The task was  great, and feeling that her strength was  failing her she gave up her place and went  home���home to die. In front of her home  at 0 Liberty street iu Chicago, her aged  father, Aaron Soloman, found her writhing in pain at 11 o'clock at night. In her  hand slie clasped an empty bottle, and on  her lips there was the odor of carbolic acid.  Her lustreless eyes and the white scarred  lips, burned by the poison, told the rest of  the story.  "It wa.s the hard work, pupa," sho  gasped, "the hard work. I couldn't���  stand it."  Sarah Snloniaii was a laundress. Only  II years old and yet she wa.s compelled to  do llus work that mat lire and stronger  women shirked. She labored until lior  strength had left her and then slie decided to die. She returned shortly before  supper ami told her father sho had i|uil  her place.  "It's too hard work, papa," she said.  "I cannot stand it. I just work from the  time I get there until the whistle blows,  and then I am so weak that it seems my  head goes round and round.  She ate sparingly of the evening meal,  and when slie had washed the dishes and  cleaned up thc room she spent an hour  reading the paper in search of a more suitable place. Slie then left the liouse and  was not seen again until her father heard  her pitiful moans in front of the house.  If Sarah Soloman's death did no more  than call attention to the system which  takes the child from tlio schoolroom and  places the bunion of factory work on its  puny shoulders, slie did not live iu vain.  A peculiar commentary on the twentieth  century civilization.  Alfred Parr is the nominee of the Liberal Party for Ymir riding. He has lived  iu Ymir for four for or live years, and  worked in the Ymir mine for awhile as a  mine laborer. He is not a miner, although  he has been secretaiy of the Ymir Miners' Union. He has enthusiastic friends  among the members of the Miners'Union,  and an effort will be made to pi ill the solid  vote of the Union for him.  The men who, in the past, have been  true to the best interests of Nelson will  elect their candidate at the provincial  election in October.  cArlists' Materials  Engineering and Mining  Books  typewriters  cMimeograpks  'Photographic Supplies  SMusical Instruments  Morley&Co, Nelson,B.C  THE TOWN AND THE DISTRICT.

There is every indication that tlie question of the employment of barmaids is  about to come to the front in Loudon.  The authorities concerned in Loudou with  the employment of barmaids are the licensing magistrates, who control licensed  premises, and the theatres and music halls  committee of the London couuty council.  Tho former body have been memorialized  against the employment of barmaids by  the National Union of Women Workers.  The latter has been similarly approached  by the Britisli Women's Temperance Association. The theatres and music halls  committee, which have jurisdiction over  the various places of public entertainment  in Loudon, recently discussed the memorial and displayed a markedly sympathetic  attitude towards the proposed abolition of  barmaids. "We shall not act precipate-  ly," said a prominent member of the council afterwards. "JWe shall try to avoid  thc mistakes made in Glasgow, when a  similar scheme was adopted there. I ex-  peetvthat an intimation will bo issued first  to theatrical and music hall proprietors  stating that we consider the abolition of  barmaids desirable."

Chicago, August 13.���General manager  Gooduo of the Rock Island road stated  this morning that no passengers were injured in the McFarland wreck, and all  trainmen but the fireman escaped. He  was probably drowned. The train, which  left Kansas City at 10:30 last uight, ran  into a washout, two miles west of McFarland, about 8 o'clock this morning.  The engine, mail car, and accommodation  car went into the opening. The washout  was caused by a cloudburst, that caused a  torrent of water to rush down an ordinary  dry bed which was spanned by a bridge 20  feet long.       Lead Ore Contract's With Trail Smelter.  The Trail smelter has con*alled the contracts for the entire output of the St. Eugene mine at Moyie and the Slocan Star  mine at Sandon. These two properties  are the biggest producers of silver-lead  ore in the country. The St. Eugene has  acapacity, _of_l 00_toiis of concentrates, per  day, this' having been attained for five  mouths in succession before the mine suspended shipments. The Slocan Star's  production is not nearly so large, but the  ore carries a higher percentage of silver as  compared with the St. Eugene, which  runs high in lead and somewhat low iu  silver. At tho Trail smelter one lead  stack is now running. Tho second stack  is ready to blow in and it was expected  No. 2. stack would havo been in operation  ere this, but the statement, is now made  that within the next few days tlie furnace  will be put into running order pernian-  tly. The No. :i stack is well under way,  and will be completed at au early date, It  is expected t hat by this time the shipments of lead ore will be heavier than  ever before, which wih enable the No. !)  .stack to blow in at once.

He wtis linked and almost dead  from exposure. After tIn��� lad had been  revived somewhat he told captain Preseott that with two oilier buys lie was fishing outside the harbor of Havana, when  the boat broke adrift and I hey were unable to row it ashore.

The Liberal-Conservatives of Nelson  held two public meetings last night, one  in the East ward and the other in the  West ward, and elected delegates to attend the nominating convention on Saturday. Both meetings were well ateuded,  and there were no clashing of rival interests.  The East ward meeting filled thc rooms  ofl;l_e^ib1^tl-C^^  overflow. Mayor Rose was voted to the  chair, and Frank Clark was made secretary. The chairman explained the object of the meeting, and no time was lost  iu getting down to business.  The following named were placed in  nomination for delegates, namely, George  W. Bartlett, hotelkeeper; Gus Erickson,  hotelkeeper; James A. Gilker merchant;  John A. Irving, merchant; Fred Irvine,  merchant; John A. Kirkpatriek, merchant; John J. Malone, hotelkeeper; W.  E. McCandlisli, hotelkeeper; W. lt. McLean, manufacturer; Dr. W. O. Rose,  physician; Thomas Sproat, carpenter;  Charles H. Sewall, railway hriikoninii;  Fred Starkey, merchant; VV. F. Teetzel,  merchant, and Robert AVeir, clerk. No  other names being placed in nomination,  the above named were declared elected by  acclamation. The following named were  then placed in nomination as alternate  delegates, namely, H. H. Avery, agent;  John Biomberg, hotelkeeper; Siegel Boyd,  cigar dealer; ' Jacob Dover, speculator;  John Hepburn, contractor; J. W. Holmes,  manufacturer; John Houston, printer;  A. J. Marks, painter; Duncan McArthur,  merchant; Robert McLean, blacksmith;  James L. Porter, merchant: Robert B.  Reilly, blacksmith; August Thomas, hotelkeeper, and Jnnies D. Wightman,  teamster. There being no other nominations, the above named were declared  elected by acclamation.  The chairman then called on a number  for speeches, and responses were made by  John Houston, J. W. Holmes, W. lt. McLean, John A. Irving, Jacob Dover, Fred  Irvine, John J. Malone, C. H. Sewall, and  Robert Craig of Montreal, who is visiting  relatives in Nelson. The tenor of the  speeches showed that the meeting was  made up of men who had no grievances  against either individuals or parties. Liberals were not abused and individual Conservatives were not villfieth The sentiments expressed were that Nelson should  be represented in the legislature by a man  able to shape legislation and look after  the interests of the country of which Nelson is the center.  Tlie West ward meeting was hold in  the Board of Trade rooms. William Irvine was voted to the chair, and George  A. Hunter was made secretary. Nomi-  titins were declared in order, and a ballot  resulted iu tin.' election of Joseph Bradshaw, railway conductor; J. 7i. (,'hoaie,  railway bridge superintendent ; (leorge A.  Hunter, insurninvagent; William Irvine,  merchant; William Macnab, locumotive  engineer; Thomas McAstoeker. locomotive engineer; David McBeath. eoulnic-  rur; Duncan M. McDonald, el'i'l;, ami  Robert Pebbles, locomotive engineer. The  following mimed were then eleeird uller-  imle delegates, namely, .1. E. Amiable, insurance agent : it. .1. Coleman, jail guard ;  James W. (irier, printer; Krnosi 1 larrup,  mine owner; Alexander Munro. railway  roailmasier; A. \V. Munroe, merchant ;  F. W. Pettit, accountant ; (iillieri Stanley, merchant, ami Harry IT. Ward, accountant.  The only speech made at the meeting  in Ihe West ward was made by chairman  Irvine, who in answer to a query as lo the  legality of the meeting said: "in my  opinion this meeting is strictly in accordance with the instructions adopted hy the  executive of the Liberal-Conservative Association of the province, and that this  ward has been allotted a fair percentage  of the total number of delegates. There  has been no attempt made to treat this  ward unfairly iu any way, and I am of  the opinion'"that the delegrtes we elect  will go into the nominating convention  freo to act as they deem to be for the best  interest of the party, not; only in Nelson,  but in the province."  About forty voters were present, and  the delegates and alternates elected show  that the Liberal-Conservatives in the  West ward of Nelson are. largely men who  a 1*0 wage-earners.  The nominating convention will be held  on Saturday night at 8 :'i0 o'clock in the  rooms of tlie Liberal-Conservative Association, corner of Baker and Josephine  streets.    Nanaimo Herald, llth: "The minister  of mines, minister of education, minister  of agriculture, acting chief commissioner  of lauds and works, and provincial secretary, will arrive here on Wednesday at  noon and attend the Conservative meeting to be held in the Eagles hall on Wednesday evening. It must not be understood that there are five gentlemen in the  delegation, as all these titles are held by  the Hon. R. F." Green. Mr. Green will  probably leave for Vancouver on Thursday morning."  According to advices received by the  steamer Tees premier McBride and attorney-general McPhillips held most successful meetings at Bella Coola, Port Essing-  ton, and Port Simpson. They wero accompanied on their tour by O. W. Clifford, Conservative candidate for Skeena.  At Port Simpson, Messrs. McBride aud  McPhillips were awaiting the Princess  May, on which steamer they were to proceed to Skagway, en route to Atlin.  "The English language is too limited to  deal with the man we are condemning."  was an utterance of one of John Houston's opponents at the four-lawyers-and-  one-deutist meeting last night. The man  Avho uttered tlie utterance was iu the  sauic frame of mind, regarding W. A.  Macdonald, K. C, in the fall of 1000. He  was so utterly opposed to that more or less  eminent politician that he would not allow him to go to a convention of the party  at Revelstoke. But time and money work  many changes.   There are a number of construction  camps on tlie Nelson-Robson branch of  the C.P.R., and most of the men engaged  on the work are registered voters. This  morning at a camp near Nelson, the men  were discussing the political situation iu  Nelson, and one of them got off tho following: He said, "Thim silk-stocking  lawyers in Nelsou are trying to down  Houston ; and, be Jasus, do you know the  reason why they are down on John?"  and uot getting a speedy reply, he answered his owu question by saying,  "They are down on Johu because he sympathizes with the Irish."  Tho delegates in attendance at the nominating convention of the Liberal Party  for Ymir riding started to do business iu  Nelson this forenoon and finished up in  Fairview, ono of Nelson's suburbs. Two  names were placed in nomination, Alfred  _Bai-r--o___-_ni--=and_-_x-mnyor Biuus^oL  Trail. Parr was nominated, Binns withdrawing.          John A. Paul, Salmo; A. B. Buck-  w< r:h, Ymir; Miss Maggie McLeod, Miss  Jessie McLeod, Miss Etta McLeod, Ymir;  James Grant, Chesley, Ontario; R. Mnl-  indes, Chesley, Ontario; John Leslie, Toronto; Dan Kline, Vernon; F. E. Fortiu,  Penibrooke, Ontario, and CharlesLenioine,  Rossland, are registered at the Queen's.  Four lawyers and one dentist met  last night iu the Hoard of Trade rooms,  and amid applause resolved that Fred  Starkly and John Houston were bold,  bad, unscrupulous, successful Conservatives, and that they (the four lawyers and  one dentist) would not piny in tlie Conservative Party back yard any more.  Last, night when the four lawyers and  one dentist were roasting Fred 'Starkey,  president of the Nelson Liberal-Conservative Association, fhatgenial politician was  being toasted in an Eagle Aerie. The  chances are Fred feels bettor today than  do the four lawyers and the one dentist.  W. J. Goepel, inspector of provincial  offices, arrived home last night after an  absence of four months. He was a.s far  north as White Horse. He reports the Atlin country as prosperous, and predicts  that, the prosperity will continue.  J. K. Johnston, West Lome, Ontario;  C. F. Foster, Spokane, and F. Hii.shy,  Spokano, are. stopping at the Lakeview.  P. Daly and John Philbert of Ymir are.  at the Madden. They are delegates of the  Ymir riding Liberal convention.
