BOX were appointed ilelcgntos, with
Judge I-'orln and II. Mclulyro us alternates. They wen- Instructed to
vote for Rowland if llle Kossland club
wished the bonspiel IIiIb year. Since
then the application of Cranbrook has
lieen made, anil some of the Nelson
men think lhal the bonspiel shoulil
come here, as Kossland had It last
year. It Is possible, Ihorefore, that
lhe Instructions given to the Nelson
club's delogates may be revised tonight.
The Sandon curlers met last week
and organized for the winlor. The
Klocan Mining Review says thai the
prospect! of the former invlnclbies ure
brighter for this year than for many
years past.
The following are the officers and

President, G. 0. Buchanan; vice
president, S. II. Green; secretary-
treasurcr, .las. J. Anderson; delegates
to the annual convention of the Kootenay Curling association, G. O. Buchanan and P. H. Walsh.
The delegales were left unlnstruct-
ed as to the hnnsplol.
The annual meeting In Rossland,
Wednesday afternoon, will for many
reasons lie one of the most Important
In tho history of the Kootenay Curling association. In addition to all the
matters of Interest already outlined,
the delegates will have to consider a
long list nf amendments to the constitution, prepared by G. O. Buchanan
at the request of the last annual meeting, which was held In Nelson.
French Government Make Further Efforts to Compete With St. Johns
as a Port of Call.
Sydney, N. S.. Dec. 3.���Alarmed by
tho rapid decrease In Ihe population
of St. Pierre and Miquelon the French
government has revised the customs
tariff for tho Island ln order to stimulate business Interests. For schooners entering the port for shelter or
supplies lhe tax has been placed at 9
cents jier ton Instead of 25 cents ,as
heretofore. For vessels entering for
the purpose of trading bait 25 cents
inslead of 55 cents, ns previously, will
be the charge.
The reduction of the tariff will have
the tendency, the government hopes,
to induce vessels seeking shelter, bait
or supplies, to run Into St. Pierre instead of St. Johns, N. F., as under the
old schedule. For the past two months
the imputation of Miquelon and St.
Pierre, Ihe last remaining possessions
of France In America, has been steadily decreasing liy emigration lo the
Canadian West and Northwest. The
reason of abandoning the Island Is
poor conditions.

How the Manila Prisoners
Were Poisoned
Doctor at Fault Will Not Be Prosecuted by the Philippine
Manila. Doc. 3.���An Investigation
made ut Fillsid, where the 10 prisoners who havo been Inoculated with
cholera serum recently died, has disclosed traces of plague germs in the
dead bodies. No formal report ou
the result of the Investigation has
been made and the government has
reached no decision in the case.
lt is asserted that tubes containing
plague germs and others filled with
cholera serum, which are so much
alike that it ls almost Impossible tu
distinguish them apart, were mixed ln
the laboratory by a visitor who examined the plague germs and by mistake
placed them In a rack with the serum
tubes. This is said to have occurred
during the temporary absence of Dr.
It. P. Strong of the Bureau of Science,
who has been conducting serum exper-
ments and Inoculation of the -prisoners
with cholera serum to test its effect.
The natives generally are in ignorance of the situation, but the native
newspapers are indignant and bitter.
It Is nol believed that criminal charg
es will be preferred, but il is possible
that Strong may resign.
Case Against Fernie Lawyer Collapsed
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Ferule, Dec. 3.���L. P. Eckstein,
charged with interfering with the
course of Justice, wae tried on Satur
day before Judge Wilson aud was acquitted. W. A. Macdonald, K. C, who
defended the accused, characterized
the prosecution as persecution, and
said that if there was any conspiracy
it seemed to bo one designed to shatter the character of a respectable and
prominent citizen. In all his experience he bad never known or heard ot
the vilest criminal being pursued as
his client had been.

witness, Iloggs, who has a record ot
five convictions, got two girls who
camo from Spokane with Beggs' lover, a keeper of a brothel, to leave the
province. Beggs was arrested anil
placed In solitary confinement. lAf-
ter being there for four hours he went
before Chief Constable McMulllu and
Lawyer Herchmer, to whom he made
a declaration confessing what he hau
done, but saying Mr. Eckstein had so
adviBed him. Thereupon Ihe charge
against him wus withdrawn and one
Inld against Mr. Eckstein, who was
dragged from his bed at midnight,
though he could have been taken in
Ihe morning.
It was shown that Hoggs expected
freedon for himself nl the expense
of Eckstein. Eckstein and his partner testified Hint they hnd shown
Hoggs the criminal code and pointed
out that IT lie Interfered wllh Witnesses he mlghl be punished. In disgust
with what Beggs had done Mr. Eckstein retired from the woman. Simpson's defence.
The case has cosl the crown a large
sum. Two counsel. It. M. Mncdotialil
of Nelson, nnd Sherwood llerehmer ot
Kernlo, prosecuted for Iho crown.

Basis of Settlement of
Lethbrldge Strike
Arbitration Will in Future Be Used,
Ro Recognition of Union
by Company.
Lethbrldge, Dec. 3.���The long-stand
ing coal strike is over, thc operators
and employees having come to terms
this afternoon. The large number ol
men will return to work immediately.
Arbitration is provided for ln advance
of further dispute. Needless to say,
the news has caused great rejoicing
and was hailed with delight throughout the entire WeBtern country.
The strike which has been settled
dated back to last March, when it was
called by Mr. Sherman, the local president of the United Mine Workers ot
America, consequent upon the coal
company refusing to concede certain
terms, which included such Increase
ln wages as would make a minimum
scale rate of $3 for an eight-hour day
aud the recognition of the union, together with tbe adoption of the check
system, whereby the company would
collect the union dues from the men's
wages aud hand them over to the
union. Upon the company declining to
grant these demands the union men
struck and the mine bas since been
partially operated by non-union labor.
The negotiations, the successful outcome of which relieved the local situation, which threatened to darken the
winter months, waa inaugurated by
Mr. Mackenzie King, deputy minister
of labor at Ottawa, who came west
about a month ago. The local manager of the mine, P. C. Naismith, as representing the company, and Mr. Sherman aud Mr. Shapp, and members of
the American Federation of Labor,
held a couple of conferences and a certain basis of agreement was arrived
The company agreed to make an increase tn wages, which will work out
at 10 por cent. They, however, refused to recognize the union to the
extent of making the mine a closed
mints, but said they would be willing
to meet cf fleers of the union to discuss q.ies'.lons ln which members of
the union employed In Ihe mine were
interested. The eight-hour -day was
not agreed to. This was not regarded
as important, because it was understood that the local legislature would
pass at the forthcoming session an
act limiting the hours of employment
In coal mines to eight hours a day.
Mayor Keary of New Westminster Reelected by Acclamation.
New Westminster, Dec. 3.���The civic

from Montreal several months ago,
was asphyxiated by gas ln a Third avenue lodging house last night, where
she had made her home ever since

Gore was always well supplied with
money and appeared to be In comfortable circumstances. Miss Gore was 78
years of age.   She was an old maid.
Lethbrldge Police Chief Dignifies Real
Estate  Men.
Lethbrldge Dec. 3.���Chief Parry suggested to the city council at Monday
night's meeting that a tax should be
imposed on real estate agents, aemen
whom he considered vagrants, aB they
spent most of their time loafing aud
gambling, put up the plea that they
were real estate agents and he had
no way of dealing with them. He
thought a tax of $60 would show them
in their true colors.
The city solicitor was instructed to
prepare a bylaw Imposing a license
of $50.
As a matter of fact tbere are one
or two young fellows around the city
at present posing as real estate agents
who are nothing more than deadbeats.
They hand out checks freely bnt
never have any funds to meet them
with. Thev t>uy typewriters, never
pay for them, trade them off for fur
coals and then have to return the
coat and typewriter. Men of that sort
are nothing but rank impostors and
���they should be treated as vagrants or
New Furnace Building.
Grand Forks, Dec. 3.���Six furnaces

Settlement of Lethbrldge Strike Conies
Too    Late���Railway    Companies
Co-operate   With   Government.
Winnipeg, Dec. 3.���The news of the
settlement of the Lethbrldge strike
will be received with the greatest rejoicing throughout tho province.
Hopes of a settlement bad somewhat
dwindled during the last few dsys and
Saturday's announcement was therefore all the more welcome.
While the government recognised
that even with the opening up of the
tiiins-s the situation will require all
possible attention during the next five
or six weekB in order to prevent great
suffering, the impression prevails that
with the steps which have been taken
and the co-operation ot the railway
companies, the situation will at any
rate be manageable.
Regina, Dec. 3.���Little new In the
fuel situation has developed today. It
is expected that immediately upon the
arrival here of Premier Scott and the
other members of the government, a
cabinet meeting will be held for the
purpose of arranging for the distribution of the coal supply arranged for
by Premier Scott with the C. P. R.
while In Winnipeg.
It is possible that the first shipments will be distributed through
the mayors and reeves, the object being to insure un impartial distribution
of the much sought for mineral.

Cause Celebre Winding
Up This Evening
Final Witnesses Are Called -Judje
Devendori Proceeds  to
Summing Up,
Herkimer, N. Y, Dec. 3.���Chester
B. Gillette probably will know bi*
fate before another day. The final
scenes In the remarkable trial of tlie
young factory foreman of Cortland
who Is charged with having slain
Oracle Brown, his sweetheart, will be
enacted today. Dlatrlct Attorney Ward
will review the evidence which haa
been placed before the jury and demand tbat the prisoner be forced to
answer with his life for the happenings of that day on Big Moose lake,
when Grace Brown went to ber death.
Gillette's counsel will argue tbat Miss
Brown went to her death a suicide,
the result of her own action.
The opening of court waa delayed
for some time, aa Judge Devendorf
waa obliged to open a regular term uf
court before the Gillette case waa resumed. The judge haa said that the
lateness of the assembling will not be
permitted to Interfere with the completion of the case today. He haa announced that a night session will be
held if necessary to give the attorneys
time to conclude their arguments.
Silas D. Feeler, a civil engineer,
was called by the defence when the
trial wad resumed. He said he had
been to South bay and Big Mooae lake
within a few days after that and made
measurements at the point where the
overturned boat was found. "At that
place the water ia seven and a half
feet deep," he said.
Mr. Ward objected because conditions are not the same now aa they
were on July 11, when Grace Brown's
"death occurred. It has been testified
by witnesses for the prosecution that
the water waa four and a balf feet
deep where the boat was found, and
on cross-examination Mr. Footer admitted that there was a difference ln
the water line when he made the
soundings and last July, when the alleged tramp tragedy took place. "The
summer shrubbery that was growing
last July ls now covered with water,"
he said.
District Attorney Ward called Julian
Vanwle .manager of a cycle company
in Cortland. The only question asked
tbe witness was objected to and the
objection was sustained. "The people
rest," answered Mr. Ward.
'VAny'Mng for the defence?" (then
asked Justice Devendorf. ""Nothing
more" was tho reply, and all waa
ready for tho summing up. Justice
Devendorf asked If the counsel wanted to be limited in time for their addresses. "I do not propose to limit
you unless you desire it," he aald.
There was no request for time limitation.

The Sikhs who are just now overrunning the country In one of tin- most
extraordinary movements of populations of modern times, presenl a dll-
flctilt problem to deal with. Ii Is not
too much to say on the one hand thai
they are utterly unfit for this climate,
and on the other that they are distant
cousins of the people of this country.
What is to be done with Them? It is
urged that luws sliuiilil be enacted
which will have the effect of entirely
excluding them, bin it Is put forward
by many who nre poaseaaed or lie

ests In India.
One form of the argument is. tha'
Great llrltaln. having derived ull nl
its wealth from India, cnniuii well deny lo the Sikhs that right or living
all over the empire which she Claims
for her own immediate eillzs'iiH, An
other is Unit the Asiatics are predestined to overrun the whole of the Pa-
clflc slope and it is merely a t|iii-n-
tlon whethere we of lhe West shoulil
put off that evil day as long ns possible or try to meet the Inevitable in
a friendly way, and so make the beal
terms possible with the future pos
sessors of the land.
Yet another Is that, as the Sikh

northweal of India.
To the gentlemen who .-ire so pessimistic as to look forward to ilu* overrunning of Hie West liy the Asiatic
very little can be said. There Is not
one Canadian, not one American In u
thousand who would assent  lo such a
biting cold of tin- Interior. It will
mean pneumonia anl pulmonary affections of all kinds, which will scourge
them as with a plague. They themselves will realize this and lhe Immigration will dry up even ns it began.
Hence there is probably no necessity
for any drastic measures. The matter
will right itself. Hut in Un- meantime there Is no reason that the transportation companies should not be

proposition. When the while race
cannot hold the Pacific slope against
all comers they will not be able to
hold any part of the world, but will
exist on sufferance, as do some of the
neutralized nations of the world, political communities which have lost
their virility, being afflicted with what
Kipling calls "green sickness." As to
Un- Hritish subject part of the question, those that put this forward prove
too much for their case. There are
people of all nations, Including many
thousands of Chinese In Hongkong
ami the Straits, Ilurma and India who
are British subjects. These Canada
excludes, ami why should that exclusion not also apply to other Asiatics
if it lis- so desired? Nor is there likely to be ill feeling bred In India over
such exclusion. Hindoos are kept out
ssf Australia by the government of
thnt country, and there was no trouble in India over that exclusion. Australia goes a good deal further than

A recent Issue uf Collier's Weekly
bus a striking cartns.n. It is a representation of Mr. J. J. Hill speaking at
Chicago on the question of the ruture
of Canada and on Ihe question of tar-
Uf reciprocity. Mr. lllll is in characteristic attitude and is represented as
extending a compass, one point of
Which is set ut Chicago and the other
extended lo the southern coast ot
Florida, the extreme limit of United
states territory in tlie south.
Tho compaSB Is then swung around
and extended so as to show how far
the distances comprehends Canadian
territory, and the point falls less than
half way below the centre of Hudson's Hay.
While there ls a general Impression
that Canadian territory is greater
Ihan that of the I'nited States the
fact ls Impressed by Mr. Hill's illustration in a way that is unusual. A
few years ago the United States w-as
considered the whole of the Nortb
American continent, and even yel In
most of the European countries tho

There are not a few Canndlans who
still feel it incumbent upon themselves to apologize for their country
when in the presence of the American
magnate, the disposition being increased by the plausible Belt-approbation of the average American ciiizs-n.
H is time, however, that Canadians
should cultivate a spirit of national
pride. In no other matter than lhat
et population need Canada how to our
cousins at the south, and even in thu
matter of population time will doubtless work the miracle for Canada that
she lias done for the other country.
In climate, resources, territorial extent and a thousand other things Canada is in the making of the biggest
nation, at least upon American soil.
That Canadians should realize this
and begin the cultivation of a national spirit and the fostering of a national pride goes without saying. In size,
potential wealth, present spirit aim
capability of indefinite expansion the
Dominion need fear comparison witli
no country, wherever situate.

"The elephant's trunk,*' said the
lecturer, "originated through a shortening of tlie lower jaw. Therefore, 1
am sorry to upset Mr. Hudyard Kipling's explanation thai the length of

having been pulled by the crocodile."
A picture of a tapir, with its long
