There was au instant, or ahniisi coin-
plele silence. Tlie president si ond
stuck still with a look of hesitancy, nl-
Minst ■ if licwildcrnienl, on his face.
Then he retreated a slep.while a pallor
begun to steal over his features.
Tlie iniiliiiiide, only partially aware
that something serious hnd happened,
paused in surprise while necks were
erntied and all eyes turned as one to
the rostrum where a great tragedy
was being enacted, Then cuine a cunV*
million. Three men threw themselves
forward as with one iinpul-e and
sprung toward Ihe would-be assassin.
Two of I hem were U, S. secret service
nun who were on the lookout and
whose duty it was lo guard against
just such a calamity as had here he
fallen the president and the nation.
The third was a bystander, a negro
xx ho hnd only an instant previously
grasped Ihe hand of the president. In
a twinkling the assassin was borne tn
l he ground, his weapon was wrested
from his grasp and strong arms pinioned him down. Then ih>-multitude
whieh thronged the edifice begin to
come to a realizing sense of the a» fulness of the scene of which Ihey had
been unwilling witness. A murmur
arose, spread and swelled to a hum of
confusion, then grew to a babel of
sounds aid later to a pandemonium of
ii uses. The crowds that a mo.neni be
fore had stood mule aud motionless as
in bewildered ignorance of tlie enormity of Ihe thing now will) a single
impulse surged forward, while Ium
deeds outside struggled blindly tti*
until the stage of the horrid drama,
while a hoarse cry went up from a
thousand throat- and a thousand men
charged forward to liy hands upon
lbe perpetrator of .the crime.
Por the moment tlte oort fusion was
terrible. The crowd singed .forward
regardless* of consequences. Men
sli.iut.eil an'l fought. Women fainted
and children screamed. Many fled
fiom the edifice in fear of a stampede,
while hundreds outside struggled
blindly forward in an effort to penetrate the crowded building and solve
the mystery of the excitement, and
panic .whicli.every moment grew and
swelled within Ibe congested interior
of the edifice. '
Inside on lhe slightly raised dais
wns enacted wil hin a few liniments a
tragedy so dramatic in character, so
thrilling iiuits Intensity that few who
looked on will he ever able in give n
clear account of what really did transpire. Even those who attended the
president came out witli blanched
faces, trembling limbs and beating
hearts, while their brains tliroiiliiid
wilh n. tumuli of coiitliiting dilutions
which could uot. he elKHtted into a
lurid narraiive of evenis as they
really transpired.
Of the multitude whicli witnessed
nr bore a part in the scene of turmoil
inui the turbulence I here was bul one
mind which seemed to relain ils
ii|iiililiriuin, one hand that remained
study, one eye which gazed with un-
lliuching calmness, and one voice
which retained its even tenor and
faltered not nl the most critical June
lure. They were Him mind and hand
and eye and voice of President McKinley. After the first shock of the
assassin's shot, he telrenled a step.
Then as the detectives leaped upon his
a*sall*uit, 'he walked slowly tn a-rluih-
aiid-seated himself, at Ilie same time
removing his bal and liowing his head
in his hands. In an instant Secretary
('ortelyou and 1'iesideut Milhnrn were
at his side, His waistcoat was hurriedly opened, tlie president meanwhile
admonishing those almut him to he
calm and telling them not lo lie
al iinned,
"But, you are wounded,"' cried his
secretary, "Let me examine,"
"No, I think not," answered the
president, "I am not hadly hurt, I
assure you." Nevetlholess his garments wei*e hastily loosened and when
a trickling stream of crimson was seen
to wind its way down his breast,
spreading its telltale stain over his
white linen, Iheir worst fears were
confirmed. A force of Exposition
guards were soon nn the scene and an
effort was made to clear the huilding.
By this time the crush was terrific.
Spectators crowded down the stair
ways from the gullet ies, the crowd on
the floor surged forward toward tiie
roBlrum, while, despite the strenuous
efforts of police and guards the throng
without struggled madly to obtain
Immediately the president was cared
for at the exposition grounds, director
geneial W, I, Buchanan started for
ihe Milhnrn residence >.u forestall any
information that, might, reach there by
telephone or otherwise. Luckily he
was first 10 arrive with the informs
lion. The Niagara Falls trip had tired
M"s. McKinley, and on returning to
the Milium residence she took leave
of her nieces, the Misses Barber, and
the president's niece, Miss Duncan, as
well as theii hostess, Mrs. Milhum,and
went to her room to rest. Mr. Buchanan broke the news ns gently as possible
to the nieces uud consulted wilh them
and Mrs. Milhiun as to the liest course
In pursue in breaking the news tn Mrs.
McKinley. It was finally decidid lhat
on her awakening, or shortly thereafter, Mr. Buchanan should break the
news to her, if in the meantime her
physician, Dr. Rixey, had not arrived.
Mrs. McKinley awoke from her sleep
at about 5.30 o'clock. She was feeling
splendidly, she said, and at once took
up her crocheting, which is one of her
favorite diversions. Immediately on
Mr. Buchanan's arrival at the Milhnrn
house, he had telephonic communication cut otf. and he decided on this as
the wisest course lo pursue, lest Mrs.
McKinley, hearing the continual ringing of Ihe bell, might inquiie what it
While the light nf day continued
Mrs. McKinley continued her crocheting, keeping In her room. When il
became dark she began to feel anxious
concerning the president. "I wonder
why lie does not come?" she asked of
her nieces. There was no clock in Mrs.
McKinley's room, and when it wns 7
o'clock she had nn idea it was so late,
and I hen il was she began to feel anxious concerning her husband, for it
was time fnr him to return to the Mil
burn home.
At 7 o'clock Dr. Rixey arrived at the
Milhnrn residence. He had lieen driven hurriedly dnwn Delaware avenue
in an open carriage. As he came up,
Mr. Buchanan wae out on the lawn
conversing with a reporter. "Do you
know," said Mr. Buchanan, "I had a
sort ot premonition of Ihis. Since
eaily morning I had been extremely
nervous and feared that something
would go wrong. Our trip to the Falls
was uneventful, but what an awful sad
ending to our day.''
At 7.20 o'clock Dr. Rixey came out
of the house accompanied by Webb
Hayes, n son of former President
Hayes, wlin is a friend of President.
McKinley's. They entered a carriage
and returned to the Exposition hospital. After Dr. Rixey had gone, Mr.
Buchanan said that the doctor had
broken ihe news in a most gentle manner to Mrs. McKinley, He said she
stood it bravely though much affected.
If it was possible to bring him to hei'
she wauled it done. Dr. Rixey assured
her that the president could be brought
wilh Mifely from Ihe Exposition
grounds, and when he left Mr. Mil-
burn's it was to complile all arrangements for 'lie removal of the president.
A big force of patrolmen was assigned
to the Milhiirn residence. At 7.30 Secretary Wilson and Mrs, Wilson called
and were admitted to the Milhnrn residence.

man, and said he belonged in Delmlt,

for Denny.
At 10.25 p, in. Hawkins made his appearance, closely followed by Denny,

from his supporters. Referee Oxley
started the men off in good shape after
having warned them. The first round
was tame, hoih men fiddling a good
deal and hardly a blow being struck.
In the second ihey mixed up a little,
seemingly getting warmed up a hit.
The third round was lively, and honors
up to Ihis stage were easy. In the
fourth round Hawkins started in to
make things hot and he chased his
man all over I he ring. Denny at this

get up. In Ihe fifth rouii.1 Hawkins
rushed his man and knocked bim down
four times, each time Denny taking
the full lime limit to recover, Denny
was plainly groggy, and it was seen he
could nol hold out another round. The

Mr. Cmiis has never regarded the
governiuenl survey as an hnncL under
taking to locate a feasible puss, hut
more as a din ice to doilge a political
issue. He declared at a public banquet
given here a mouth ago I ha', he was
inclined lo helieve that a report would
be made against a railway through
the Hope range in favor of one starting from Spence's Bridge, on the main
line of the Canadian Pacific railway,
He also announced that ilinli g lhe
summer months he would personally
explore two or three of the other
known passes through the Hop.- range.
Previous lo lhe ha,tiquet he had nl
ready forestalled Ihe government's
survey by taking levels from Princeton
via Otter flat up to Suniiiiii City cump,
wliere Mr. Dewduey hns nnw his head*
quarters, Ou arriving at, whnt is
known ns Railroad pass Mr, Dewdney's
party found blazed ou a slake the
following terse notice : 'Smith Clink
August 2, 2U50 feel, and don't you fo '
Mr. Curtis failed to mention Ihis
'act at ihe banquet however, when he
said thai a grade of less than two per
'cnl throughout this puss could he oil
tained. He said Ihal afler visiting
Victoria lie would run In Hop., lo
compete his self imposed task of taking levels of nthei passes.
Private advices received hy mail say
ihat, he has outfitted u suney part)
and it is believed his ntrt.y Is on the
trail of lhe governiiieiii. engineers,
checking up the level-, and grades on
the Coqulinlla to the siiinnlil. In n
few weeks lime he will again stmt
frnm Hope to explore the Similk i-
meen pass and the Rociie river pass,
about 40 miles to Ihu south of Railroad pass, which he has already in-
specied. This route i.s nearer to the
Iiiipinaiiin.il boundary line. The
people of Princeton and lho disiriol
.ire pleased with the action of Mr.
Curtis. They say that it will now lie
hutushort time hefore the government will be compelled lo reopen
negotiations for the early construction of the Cnasi-Knotenay railway.

The Time for the Exchange of Stock
from the Old Company to the
New, Expires To-morrow,
Holders of stock in the Fairview
Corporation, Limited, owning the
.Steinwiiiileriit. Fairview, cannot after
to-morrow, Sept. 10. excliHiige stork
of the old company for that of the
reconstructed company, and all stork
nut. duly tninsfnilil liefore that dale
will he cancelleii.
This Is I he conipany which E. Ifnni-
iiiehneyer, f.ituerly manager nf the
fiuiily Edith mine, hns heen engaged
to manage il and it looks very much as
if he will lie required to repeat the performance with the Fairview property
thai Captain Gilford was culled it pun
to do with the Silver King mine, that
of galvanizing inlo life what, appeared
to he a dead property. The Fairview
company luis good assets, hut up tu
data it appears to have heen unahle to
turn them to account. In uddilion to
its gold properly the corporation has
extensive townsite interests, as well ns
coal lands, said to ho of considerable
value, hut the gnld mine is the main
spring, the successful operation of
which is in h measure necessary lo give
value to the nther holdings. This is
the work wliieh has heen cut nut lor
manager Itnniiueluieyer, and if it ran
he done he may he depended upon to
do it.
The Fairview conipnny wns original
ly stocked fur ijU.IXKMIIK) In shares of 25
rents each, considerable quantities
were disposed of al. this figure. An
unsuccessful attempt wus made to float
lhe properly on the London market,
anil failing this a loan of $40,000 was
secured for development purposes from
the (loiiderhuin-ftlackstiick people in
Toronto. A morlgiige was given lo
secure ihis loan, and at the same time
the Toronto people took an option nn
a considerable block of the Fairview
stock. It is altogether likely that this
option wnuld have lieen taken up hut
for the slump iu War Eagles which
occurred fume I iine later. The circumstance that tlie option was allowed to
lapse was not uii welcome lo tbe principal holders of Fairview, howevei, as
in ihe development resulting from the
proceeds of the limn a much higher
grade uf ore was struck lhan any previously encountered in the property.
Considerable shipments uf ore were
made to mills in the vicinity, and frnm
'he proceeds a substantial portion of
the loan was pnid back, lt was decided, howevei', if the company wns to
work the property itself, it would he
necessary lo proceed with leconstruc-
tion and the esult was lhat theold
stuck ivas called in and new stuck is-
sued ou  whicli 'ii cents were ceilitctl
as having been paid wilh a call of a
cent and a half to be paid upon the
cancellation of the old slock and the
issue of the new.
The compuny is now proceeding
with tbe Installation of a stamp mill,
and hy lhe Hrst of October ex pert to l-e
dropping 3f stump*, which it is estimated will render possihle the treatment
of 75 tons of ore in the '11 hours, The
property itself is opened up to a depth
of 300 feet by means of a shaft, and
the showing consists of a large body of
re varying in width from 20 toSOfeet,
which it is estimated will yield from
$5 to $9 per tun, 8uccess or failure
therefore depends upon the average
value tbis ore will yield across the entire body. Careful figuring has led
the officers of the company to believe
lhat wilh a uniform return of $6 per
ton in gold a good return can he secured. Previous tests with lhe mill
now being erected has shown that 80
per cenl. of the values of the ore can he
retained in tlie milling. Thete are nt
present considerable quantities of ore
on the Fairview dumps which is said
to run from fft to #5 per Ion. This in
itself would yield a good return on
milling, now that it is out, hut the program of the company at present is to
keep this in a measure ns a reserve and
operate the mill as largely as possible
from the output of lhe mine, using tlie
dump mote for maintaining a uniform
grade of ore lhan any olher purpose,
Fairview is one of the best known
British Colunihia stocks on theeusteui
Canadian markets. It hns gone frnui
par (o almost nothing, so Ibat success
in bringing it again iipnn its feet would
lie a gnat feather in the cap of any
mining man. For this reason the pro
gress of Fairviews under the manage
ment of E, Iiainmelmeyer will he ful
lowed with interest not only by those
who havo invested in the stock but hy
mining men in general.

Springei, president of the Chicago-
British Columbia Milling Company,
announces (hat a group of Chicago
manufacturers and capitalists has
taken an option on the controlling
inlerest in the Standard Pyrilio Smeller Company at Oreenwood together
with all the smelter company's assets,
which include the Marguerite properly
adjoining the Mother Lode, alio] the
Standard, a promising property, Tlie
npi ion is fur a short tune only, and he
expected thut the matter would he
closed favorably shortly afler the arrival of himself and friends at Chicago.
If a sale be consummated as he expect -
ed, as the Chicago people have lieen
very fivorahly impressed with the
niiilonk, h« snys the plant would he
blown in at an early date. Hedeclan d
he is fatisiled that there is abundant
ore available to keep the plant in
