Ottawa, Aug. IB.���Canada is prepared
to shoulder half of the required subsidy
for the Atlantic end of the projected
fast service "all red lino." A company
of capitalists behind the enterprise have
asked for an annuul subsidy of |2.500,*
000 for tiie proposed new four-day service  between  England and  Canada.
The Canadian government, through
Sir Wilfrid Laurler. has promised to
pay half of this amount, viz., $1,250,-
1)00, leaving the Imperial government.
Australia and New Zealand to pay the
other half. Thut arrangements will be
linally effected among the interested
parties Uj the agreement looking to a
realization of the enterprise is confidently  expected  by  the premier.
Delays In working out the details of
the scheme are. of course, necessary,
but assurances by members of the Imperial government when the matter was
discussed at the colonial conference.
Indicative of the desire of the Campbell-
Bannorman government to establish a
direct fast transportation line connecting Great Britain with Canada. Australia and New Zealand, still hold good,
and after Ix��rd Strathconas return to*
Kngland It expected that some definite
announcement will be made by tbe Imperial authorities looking to a consummation of the scheme.

New Brunswick Operators Report Poor
Season���Prices In England  Have
The lumber Industry In New Brunswick Is now experiencing the best
manufacturing and the worst selling
season in a number of years. Condi-
lions have arisen during the past few
months which have resulted in heavy
losses to some of the largest shippers,
and from present Indications tbe depression will continue the remainder of the
summer at least. The English market
has dropped two dollars and a half per
thousand feet.
Early in the spring the outlook was
promising. Deals are always bought
early. Tonnage Is arranged tn advance,
and some of the deals are resold. Deals
at the beginning of the season were purchased at from $1.60 to $15.00, and several shippers, following their usual plan,
secured large contracts. They made the
charters, and now whin the English
market Is away down are practically
compelled to ship even at a direct loss.
A few shippers, however, who felt suspicious of the market .limited their purchases and now count themselves extremely lucky. Yet In spite of this precaution, the whole output of New
Brunswick mills has been contracted
for and up to date about 50 per cent,
has gone forward. There are very few
deals now on the local market, some
small quantities being* held by lnde

Secret Service Men o
Authorities   Dislike   Necessity   of
Trusting to Confessions
for Convictions.
Chicago, Aug. 15.���The Record-Herald
today says secret service agents of the
United States department of justice,
working through the bureau of corporations, are sold to be on the payrolls of
all the big railroad corporations and
trust combines in the country.
In Chicago alone lt is said that there
are at least 150 special men who are
working for railroads and for packing
house companies and are watching
every move that is made with a view of
ascertaining -whether the corporation
laws are observed In letter and spirit.
While no proof Is obtainable aa to the
presence of these spying employes, in
several instances men have been
removed from their positions on the
ground that they were tn the employ of
the government as secret spies. One of
the officials of this end of the department of justice when asked if such an
army waa at work for the government
said, "If it were so I could not tell. I
know of cases where men have lost
their positions unjustly from falling
under suspicion. I have heard that
statement made before but 1 shall
neither affirm or deny It. If such work
Is done agents of the bureau of corporations are those most likely to be engaged in IL" The rumor that the government had placed all of the big rail*
ways and corporations under surveillance was revived forcefully by the al
leged rebate case which the government is Investigating against the Sch
warsxchlld and Sulzberger company.
The Information, where disclosing a rebate or simply a clerical error, was
given to the department here by an employee of the packing company. Officials of the government refuse to deny
that he was an agent and that two ol
them are employed by the packing firms
The story Is told that the alleged spies
were obliged to draw their revolvers in
order to make their escape with the
evidence. It is thought the government
has grown tired of prying evidence out
of corporations and in return giving a
contract of immunity. In every wrong
act that has been uncovered thus far by
departments of the government, the evidence has been given by one of the
parties guilty of the alleged crime. All
the railway officials Interviewed yesterday seemed to be convinced that the
secret service agents were In their employ, one official stating that he understood the espionage extended to station
work on the line of his road.
"If the government is looking for old
offences," said the official, "they may
be found, but 1 do not believe the
strlcteat system of espionage will disclose any thing wilfully wrung on the
part of railroads now."
Charge that Dynamite Which Exploded
Was Not Properly Cured.
Essex, Ont., Aug. 16.���Was the dynamite which exploded last Sunday morning with such disastrous results, prop
erly cured? This is one of the Import
ant quest Itons which the Jury empanelled by tho coroner, J. W. Broen, will
have to answer when they are consider*
Ing how Joseph McNary and George
Conlln met death at Essex station.
The Inquest commenced yesterday.
George Delong, who has had sixteen
years experience with highly explosive
materials, was the principal wltnoss. He
stated that when dynamite was no*, sur
flclently cured nitro-glycerlne sometimes leaked from the absorbent and
this could be readily exploded by friction.
It Is probable that an attempt will
yet be made to show that the explosive
was not In a safe condition for shipment. Alter a number of witnesses
were heard adjournment was taken till
August 23rd.

New   York  Judge's   Novel   Decision   in
Blgsmy Case.
New York, Aug. 15.���Justice Warrr
G. Foster, of general sessions, has j.
disposed of a bigamy case In a highly
unusual fashion, suspending sentence
on the bigamist and allowing him to
choose which wife he would live with
after the prisoner had promised to support both women. The man in the case
was Herman Kuhn. a hatmaker. It was
brought out at the trial that he lived
with a woman in Austria and they had
three children. Then he came to this
country and married Sadie Rosenberg.
His lawyer argued that there was no
proof of the flrst marriage, and there
was doubt in Judge Foster's mind of
the sufficiency of the evidence, but the
jury convicted juat the same. The two
women did not want Kuhn to go to jail.
The older said that If he did she and
her three children would have to go to
the poor house. When Judge Foster
suggested that if he would support both
women and the children sentence would
be suspended, Kuhn promised. "And I
can keep them both," he said. Judge
Foster replied thane could not do tbat.
Kuhn wanted a decision as to which
was his legal wife. As Kuhn bad -been
convicted of bigamy Judge Foster was
puzzled. "You will have to decide,"
said Judge Foster. Kuhn did lt with a
jump. He grabbed the young woman
he had married here and kissed her.
The other, when she was told in Yiddish what happened said that she did
not want It tbat way
Profits of New Canadian Mint Will  Be
Reduced by Circulation of American Coin.
Ottawa, Aug. 16.���United States silver is circulated as largely as ever In
the Dominion, and the government Is
again much concerned. Two years ago
it took such steps as checked circulation of foreign coin In Canada. This
check was removed, and the average
citizen now receives as many American silver coins from banks and business as current Canadian silver coin,
notwithstanding that banks were being
paid commission for deportation of
American silver.
In 1905 over $500,000 was sent. This
commission ceased and American coins
are becoming as plentiful as ever. The
cry Is going forth that unless some restrictive action is taken Canadian silver
will be second to American.
The government's recent endeavor to
secure deportation of American silver
and restrict Its circulation was intended to prevent Canadian stiver coin from
being displaced, and to secure for the
government Itself the 50 per cent, profit
that accrues from Canadian coinage of
The more American money there Is
in this country the smaller will be the
Canadian government's profit from coining. This is now realised by Canadian
business men in view of the fact that
the government has about completed
the erection ot an expensive mint at

'���^nqnized Now as Land
Minister of Agriculture, Home From
Europe, Tells What He Saw-
Fine Exhibitions.
Ottawa, Aug. 16.���Hon. Sydney
Fisher, minister of agriculture, has returned to Ottawa after a trip of two
months to England and the continent,
and is now hard at work cleaning up
departmental business and preparing
for the coming session.
"I spent a month in Europe this summer," aald Hon. Mr. Fisher, " and I
waa greatly impressed with the increase
of knowledge concerning Canada, particularly In countries In which Canada
has made a display at exhibitions. Exhibitions are spreading knowledge about
this country to an extent that Ib hard
to estimate. As a result ot the display
made at Milan, I found this summer, In
Italy, in the post offices, at the Intelligences offices and among the common
people knowledge of Canada that never
existed before. This la bound to produce good results for Canada. When a
man now makes up his mind to emigrate, Canada la one of the first places
he considers and Inquires about before
leaving his native country.
"Manufacturers and commercial men
now consider Canada as a possible
source of materials which they use In
their business and capitalists are bound
to look upon the Dominion with increasing interest aa a field tor investment.
Conditions ate quite different from
those of tan years ago when the United
States waa the only part of the North
American continent where the European knew anything about. When you
registered at a hotel as coming from
Canada, the clery would probably ask
you In what part of the United States
was that."
Mr. Fisher was much pleased with
the display that Canada is making In
Dublin. The Canadian display is spoken
of by everyone from the aristocrats to
the working men. "Their majesties,
the King and Queen, visited the show
when I was there and both expressed
their appreciation and pleasure at the
display made by Canada."

Nsw Pier at Montreal.
Montreal, Aug. 14.*���There has Just
been completed the building of the new
Tarte pier, at the eastern end of the
city. By another season the harbor
commissioners of Montreal will prob-
���ably have under their control this
structure, one of Its biggest of its kind
on the continent. It will add to this
city's accommodation for freight for
large ocean going vessels and wtll go
fur to lessen the difficulties now experienced of finding room for ull the
vessels which seek to make this port
their terminus.
Ottawa, Aug. 15.���By the failure of
the government to provide a silver refinery as an adjunct to the mint, which
It Is planned to open next month or not
later than November, the profits figured
upon by the construction of this, one
of the world's llnost mints, will be reduced to a cypher.
Without this necessary addition the
government will, lt Is stated here, be
compelled to send tbe silver to the
United States to have It refined there
and shipped by to thu Dominion at
great expense, practically exhauslng the
other profits of the mint, as there is
not In Canada an electrolytic process
or the equipment to meet the demand.
Sliver refined In any other process Is
said to be wholly Insufficient.
Rather than lose these profits It is
expected that the government will make
amends for the oversight by the Immediate erection of the necessary addition and plant. It Is thought that tho
government may use some of the copper from the smelter at Trail, but It
will have to secure a sliver purifying
process of Its own or lose the profits of

.j- rtaken tlie advocacy of those principles of reform adopted by the Dominion
Liberal convention of 1894, advocated
during the prolonged campaign that preceded the elections of ltS'Jli, and decently buiied immediately afterward. Mr.
Huuiutisa was oue of tho young and enthusiastic Liberal who believed lhat
Sn Wilfrid Laurier really meant what
he professed.
On this subject Mr. Bourassa will
have many sympathisers, and possible
[ollowers, noi only in Quebec but in all
thi provinces. Never before In the history  Of Canada lias the  partisan spirit
so thoroughly dominated all appointments tu and in promotion in the civil
���ervtce as during the regime of Sir
Will rid Laurier. It has resulted In a
murked decline throughout Cauadu in

thai Sir John Macdonald more frefjueut-

made on the ground of professional eminence und Integrity. Since 1896 but
one Conservative  haa  been appointed
lu Hie bench ��� Wallace Nesbitt. and he
las since resigned. But, without any
personal roloreticea, every one knows
that very few of tho recent appoint1
ments to the bench can be justified on
tbe score of character, learning or ability. In the protest against tlie system
now lu vogue Mr. Ilourassa may count
upon a large measure of support.
It is impossible to say in advance
what Influence Mr. ilourassa can wield
in his own province. The Quebec elec-
Lorate Is notoriously volatile. No leader
wus ever idolized thero like Jiouore
Mercier, and yet he sustained a ruln-
i u - defeat and died in disgrace. The
aame Of Laurler is a potent force among
Hu ETrenoh Canadians, but it is hard
to say what may be the effect of a
crusade by Mr. Ilourassa and the young
enthusiasts who follow him.

Belfast, Aug. 14.���The most serious
rioting that the recent strike haa produced filled the narrow streets in the
notorious Falls road district for many
hours tonight, and led to several bayonet charges by the troops. The trouble
began when a mob tried to rescue two
men who had been arrested by the
police und for a long lime it was a tussle of the familiar lielfast type, a mob
with slunes against the police with
clubs. There were many broken heads
and smashed faces, but for reasons not
immediately apparent the mob seemed
determined tu indulge in a big orgy of
lighting. They could not get enough
Irom the noliee. Their ferocity increased as their numbers continuously grew
uud troops were called from Ormeau
park, where  they  were  camped.
About ow, accompanied by a mag-
istiate, marched into the slums composing the Falls road quarter. They
no sooner appeared than they were
greeted with showers of cobblestones,
which had been diligently torn up in
anticipation of their visit. These and
bricks and small stones rained from
the lop windows of houses as well as
from the crowd. Several soldiers were
severely injured, some being incapacitated. The detatchmentS moved forward, headed by the magistrates, shouting the terms of the riot act. The stoning continued and the soldiers were ordered to charge with bayonets bared,
ihe streets' were pitch dark, the mob
having extinguished the lamps, aud the
work was moal dilHcult. The charges
were frequently resisted, and several
were struct with the bayonets. There
were many women In tlie crowds, aud
frequently, aa the soldiers came in contact with lhe mob, a mau would seize a
woman aud ihurst her before him,
ihoutinff, "Coward, aud you couldn't
stab a woman."
At the same time he wuuld allow her
to receive the bayonet's point, while he
himself escaped unhurt. In Culling
Tree road dragoons charged with
swords, from which many of the rioters received wounds, but as Iho weapons wero blunt nobody was seriously
The mob lied shrieking before the
troopers, whose charge was more effective than that of the Infantry. Many
of the latter were placed hods do combat und returned to camp with pulpy
faces. Sevural limped badly, their feet
having been injured. The fighting seemed general in practically every street
of the quarter, which is a Nationalist
ono. More troops are being hurried
to the scene. Some are cordoning the
approaches so us to confine the outbreak. It Is rumored that a child wns
killed, but no reports of death are yet
authenticated. There aro plenty of
wounded police, troops and civilians.
Many have been taken to the hospitals.
The ferocity of the mob may be gauged
by the fact that a drenching rain
throughout did not have the least effect
in dampening Its ardor.   At a :nte rnur
the fighting continues,

Sketch   of   Exploits   of   Desperado   Who
Haa Lately Eaoaped from
The mason Hill Miner has not written the Htory of hlu life Ib because that
life !a far front  being completed.
The most thrilling events of that
long and chequered career of lawlessness may follow the hour of his escape
at the age of sixty-five from a life term
in New Westminster penitentiary.
These are the outstanding features
of Miner's reniarkahle record:
Held up a stage In Colorado In 1874.
For this he served five years in Sun
Quenqln penitentiary*. Released In
Hold up a stage near Del Norte, Cal.
Cumpanton, Leroy, captured and hanged hy a vigilance committee. Miner escaping with the coin, $3600.
Again held up the Del Norte stage
In March, 1881, with Stanton T. Jones.
Captured, but escaped, wounding sheriff and ofTIcers. Caught at Sacramento.
Sentenced to twenty-five years in San
Quentln penitentiary. Served every
day of It. less good conduct time, being
releusod June 17, 1901.
September, 1903, held up the Oregon
Hallway & Navigation Company's express at Corbett. For this there ia atlll
a $1500 reward   for Miner's capture.
September, 1904, took part in C.P.R.
holdup at Mission Junction, when $7,000
was   lifted   from   the  express car.
The Kamloops 1906 holdup of the
C. P. R. transcontinental was on the
night of May 8, 1906.
A Btage robbery back In the seventies earned for Miner a five-year term
in San Quentln penitentiary from which
he was released iu 1879.
The next heard of him was his arrival in Denver, Col., in 1880. While
there he met the noted Hilly Leroy. a
desperate Rocky Mountain highwayman
who had gi'*en the United States government and the express companies
of the southern stateB great trouble.
.Miner adopted the name of W. A. Morgan, and together the pair with a recklessness which only highwaymen can
assume, did all the principal towns of
Colorado. About the end of December,
1S79, they robbed the Del Norte stage.
for which desperate work they received
$3600. Leroy was later captured and
hanged by a vigilance committee. Miner

with his usual good luck, escaping with
the coin, evading the most vigilant
search ever instituted in that state lor
a fugitive highwayman.
Miner soon returned to Denver, wh-jre
he met Stanton T. Jones, formerly of
Ohio, and the two started for ths It 10
Grande on a forging expedition.
In March, 1881, they again held up
the Del Norte stage but the booty paid
them poorly for this risk. Stealing
two horses near Del Norlo they iTed
After a search of four days the robbers were seen about dusk riding leisurely across a bridge near Del Norte.
They were armed, but be', tg covered
with the rifles of the officers, were
captured. Sheriff Brenaug'a tied tb.*
prisoners with wire, put them on a
freight wagon and started for I>el Norte
the same night.
They were compelled to camp a* a
place called Wagon Wheel Gftp for the
night, but tbe sheriff ani hi;* officers
were so completely exhausted that they
fell into a deep sleep, leaving the
teamster tn charge of the prisoners.
Early in the morning the officers were
aroused by loud cries of the teamster.
Springing from their beds they were
startled by the sharp report of a revolver. The flrst shot broke the arm of
Goodven, one of the sheriff's officers.
The second Bhot broke the sheriff's
right arm at the Bhoulder. The third
and fourth again struck Goodven's left
arm and the two desperados dashed
Into the darkness.
Miner went direct to San Francisco,
travelling the entire distance on horseback, taking him five days. Dut he was
still pursued. In company with another
of his gang named Muller he continued
on down the Sacramento river. Here
they were pursued by Capt. AuII under
whom Miner had served five years in
San Quentln penitentiary.
Anil came upon nib men suddenly
and commenced firing upon them. At
the flrst round Muller threw down his
gun and came running to Aull with
both hands In the air. Miner took
flight but was pursued by one of Aull's
men and finally forced to surrender.
Both men were taken to Sacramento.
The confession of Muller made the case
an easy one. The men pleaded guilty.
Miner and Muller getting twenty-five
years each.
On June 21, 1901, Miner was liberated from San Quentln, where he had
served twenty years, five years being
taken oft* for good conduct. Then he
came north, the O. R. & N. holdup four
years ago being the first of his more
recent performances.

French Publicist Warns Britain and His
Own Country���Other Powers Still
Paris. Aug. 15.���A powerful article
on "The Dupery" of Disarmament," by
M. de I-anussan, appears in tho Siecle.
M. de l.iuu's.s-m points out that the
false beliefs and Insincere arguments
which prevail on this subject are made
use of chiefly In Great Britain and
Krance, the two most hlghly-clvlllied
and well to-do countries In the world,
and that the result Is the gradual but
steady decay of their national rlrlllty
and military power.
He says that France Is disarming at
such a rate that In a short time people
will be asking whether she has an
army, for during six months of every
year her whole force will be represented hy 200.000 moderately trained
men scattered over tho length and
breadth of her territory. Tho decadence In the navy Is more pronounced
than In the army. France having sunk
to fourth place among naval [lowers.
M. de l.auessan declaros that the
efTect of the propagation of pacificist
Mens haa been the sain,* In Kngland.
There are signs that the standard of
naval strength lo which the llrltlsh Admiralty Ib pledged��� that of equality, If
not superiority, of any two powers���Is
no   longer   kepi   up.
The programme of construction hns
ben limited, recruiting haB slackened,
and fewer boys are entered In the training schools. In a few years, If this policy of disarmament la kept up, Great
Hritaln will be beaten in the rnce for
naval supremacy by both Germany and
the  United Slates.
M. de Lanessan asks: Of what use
then, will be the grouping of nations
which far-sighted Hrlllsli -iitateamen
have brought about if the nations concerned have disarmed before an International convention allowB thorn to do
so  without   danger ?
Disarmament as It Is being practiced
in Britain and Franco Is all the more
dangeroiiB becauso Germany and the
and the United States and Japan are
every day Increasing their power and
their armaments, Germany at least with
unmistakably   aggressive   Intentions.

Promenade   Concert.
The prominade concert held last night

Hometeeker's  Excursion.
Several Nelson gentlemen are Interesting themselves in a proposal to arrange a homeseeker's excursion from
Manitoba to ihe Kootenays. If the matter can be arranged with the C. P. R.
the excursion will take place during the
-Nelson Fair. This is something that
should Interest every resident of the
Kootenays and no effort should be
spared to carry it out.
20,000 Club Finances.
Although the returns from last night's
entertainment will not he very considerable, the 20,000 club has a brighter
financial outlook now than before, and
the danger of compulsory dissolution
is averted. Promises of subscriptions,
Immediate and deferred now total nearly $600, or half of what is actually required for the current year. As the canvass is not by any means complete, it
in safe to assume that enough will be
raised for all necessities and to enable
some new work to be undertaken.

Caught In the Act.
It is not often that papers are called
upon to chronicle acts of theft on the
part of Chinamen, but that the almond-
eyed celeBtlal is quite as prone to appropriate the goods and chattels of
others as the white man was proven

manufacturer, caught one of them robbing his house.    For some month** Mr.

summer residence be was surprised to
find a Chinamen hurriedly leaving.
When he entered the door he found
that his clock, a valuable timepiece,
was missing, and looking around he
found It and tome other articles rolled
up In a coat behind the door. He then
started In pursuit of the Chinamen, and
after a struggle succeeded in overpowering him. On his person were several
other articles belonging to Mr. Kelly.
When the Chinamen realized that It was
all up with him he showed fight, but
Mr.   Kelly   stood     over     him   with   the
Colt's pistol, which lt will he remembered he took from the Hoer Chief near
Pretoria. Finally Acting Chief of Police WIg/itman was called up by telephone and he and Mr. Kelly succeeded
