Stock   Market.
The mining situation shows little
change during the week, span from the
closing down of the La Plata. Bxcepi
at Silverton mhlch Is experiencing a
peculiar kind of boom, there is a general
tendency to suspend operations. With
metals at their present prices, theallver,
copper and lend properties of Kootenay
can no doubt be operated at a small
profit, imt with ihe expectation or higher
prices the owners naturally decline lo
sell their product at what they regard
as slaughter prices.
The stock market for the past week
showed but few changes, prices remaining flim, with tradings showing a slight

about Thursday, when a slight decline
was noticeable. Dominion and QronbJ
showed almost no change, fluctuating
only a point or so throughout.
Alberta Coal and Cuke and International Coal continued firm, though the
latter sold oft a fraction, with but little
business offered. Diamond Vale Coal
made a slight gain, selling up about :S

Ottawa. Dec. 21���Tlie most sensational episode in the address debate was
the challenge lo Mr. I'ugsley. Four
tlm.-s outside of the bouse the minister
of pul,lie works lias talked of disclosure.--
that lu.- could nuke respecting Conservative campaign expenditure iu ll,f--:
Before the House met Mr. Hon!-n,
whom Mr. Pugsley connected with the
trausarlions. challenged the minisiir i-i
uiai.e good his statements. In the lirst
,lliy's debating Mr. Borden repeated the
Invitation to the minister to tell all *..-
knew. Ye, Mr. I'ugsley kept sttenl. Day
after day he was reminded thai heoughl
u. speak, yet remained dumb. But on
Tu. sd.tx Mr. Kemp, of Toronto, put tbe
challenge in a foun which allowed of
00 escape fur Mr. Pugsley without exposing himself to the contempt of the
Mr. Kemp gave a sketch of Mr.
l'lm.sSoy's political activities Immediately before the elections of 19U4. The
persons accused by government organs
of a dark conspiracy to overthrow the
government wiih the help of an Immense
corruption fund, were then intimate and
conn.l..niial friends of Mr. Pugsley, and
were trying to make hlin minister or
railways. Tbe head ot this alleged eon-
.-pilar.. Mr. llaviil llussill. gave a great
banquet to Mr. PngSley a month before
the election where speakers nominated
him to lb.. Dominion ministry, and Mr.
Russell's newspapers in lhat connection
announced it as the opinion of the ban-
quit,ers thai Mr I'ugsley must be pro-
moled Immediately after this, accord
Ing to Mr. I'ugKh y's own statement-
large contributions were made to defeat
Mr. Km,nersoii in Westmorland. Mr-
Kemp pieced together the evidence to
show thai whatever was done for the
defeat of Mr. ISmnierson was dono by
Mr. Piigsby's friends and in his Interest. He read from a New Brunswick
paper a statement that .Mr. I'ugsley was
aware of these proceedings and In the
opinion of that journal was the chief
advisory  man in the scheme.
Mr. Kemp pointed out lhat Mr. Em-
merson was weakened ln St. John by
lack of newspaper support and Mr.
I'ugsley controlled a paper there, the
purchase of which Mr. Knimersons
friends were negotiating. Without giving Mr. Kmni.'is.n notice, a few weeks
hot'ore the election when the paper was
most needed. Mr. Pugsley sold it to Mr.
Russell who ai once turned it into an
antl-Kmmc.suti organ. This showed
what kind of Liberal Mr. Kinnierson was
|utri before the election of lnm.
There was a continued round of Conservative applause as these facta wen
revealed. but ll"'.' became stronger
when Mr. Kemp again ami again challenged Mr. Pugsley n. tell all he knew.
"I doubt." said Mr. Kemp, "whether
he lias the courage to Stand up and repeat In this house what he said upon
ihe public platform."
Mr. Kemp added: "So far as I am
concerned and i believe any other member en this side of the House, we desire lo see him go lhe full length. 11
does not make any difference whom
ibis hits, be they high or low. bo they
In this House or ...it of Ihe House: we
want to see Ihls mutter brought lo light,
and WO want to know what there is In
It     If the honorable gentleman refuses
to k" further, if he is satisfied to make
Insinuations l" lhe way he has done outside of Ihe House, wlthoul Inking steps
to make bis position good, I cannot bul
feel that he is rondo,lined before lhe
country for making statements which
he knew were not true. Sir, he sahl
tilked of these things on the hustings:
but he Inn* sal In this House not dating
to open his mouth. He Is now nl th.
bar or public opinion and let hlni choose
Sits court."
In various forms this challenge was
repeated l.y Mr. Kemp amid approving
-h'-ers Net one word could be got
from the minister. He sat In the fash
Ion described by Mr. Kemp, to the great
Confusion ami disgust Of many govern
ment supporters, some or whom two
days  inlet- in  the  government  caucus
made strong complaints against tblr
course. From Ibe Liberal benches Mr.
I.avergne. nn Independent member of
the partv. repeated the demand that
Mr. Pugsley should speak. "If he has
anything In say," said Mr. i.avergne.
"1.1 him say It now." A little later he
added,  "Tho minister of  public  works
should not wait to be forced to speak,
and if he does wait he should be forced
���if be knows of any corruption it is Safe
duty to himself, to the Liberal party and
to his country to bring these facts to
light." The member added a sting by
comparing Mr. Pugsley to the Trojans
who challenged the Greeks to combat
and then ran away.
Thus the matter stands. Nothing can
be got from Mr. Pugsley. Mr. Ayles-
wortb who made his first appearance
this week will next be Invited to make
good bis statements on the stump concerning Mr. I'.orden's connection with
the corruption fund.
The country and the Conservative
pany has suffered a severe loss by the
d-atli of Mr. Benjamin Gunn. the late
member for South Huron. Warm tributes were paid bv Mr. Fielding and
Mr. Horden to the character of their departed   colleague.
The estimates for next year, brought
down this week show that the extravagance which lias marked the last few-
years ls to go on increasing. Though
this year's expenditure will far exceed
that, of any previous twelve months it
is proposed to spend a great deal more
next .ear. Here are some comparisons:

There will be supplementary estimates but tbe above ii, a comparison
between the main estimates of last year
and thnse of this year, each deal.ng with
a period of twelve months. No doubt
the supplementary estimates ol this year
will also l>e much in excess of the last
yeur. Those of last year Increased the
appropriation by over H.8,000,000. The
total outlay for next year will therefore
be $|:sr,.0ll0.000.
To show how things are going this
year, we have the othcial announcement
of expenditure for the last eight months
compared with the same period last
voar.    It shows the following:
Ine rease of  taxes $7,900,091
Increase of total revenue.... 9,148376
Increase   current   expenses.
Increase  capital  expenses..
Total Increase of expense..
Increase   of  expenditure  over
increase of revenue   7.004.125
We have also the statement of Mr.
Fielding In the House that, whereas
when he took office he floated a loan at
two and a half per cent. Interest a little
below par making the net cost less than
three per cnr.t., he is now paying four
per cent, on bonds lhat cc.me due last
year, and are continued lor four years
to cime: that he Is paying four and a
half per cent, on two and a half million
dollars borrowed from banks, nnd seven
pev cent, on overdraft of 81.500.000..
while be has large debts falling due
within a few months.
It cost 842.0(18.00 to pay experts last;
vear lo put the marine and fisheries ac-|

third $5,282.
lt cost $88,306 to build an addition

Lunatic   Drowned.
Jacob's creek. Pa., Dec. 21.���ln the
short distance rescurers were able to
penetrate the Darr mine, the scene of
Thursday's awful disaster, last night
hail" a dozen bodies were found and
brought to the surface, making the total
number that has reached the morgue up
to this morning 12. While a vast amount
t.f work was done during the night not
much progress was made towards the
<_ntnes la which the great mass of
bodies are entombed. The danger of
another explosion is imminent and the
rescuing forces dare not venture far
ahead of the forces erecting the temporaries battrlces. Vast quantities of
gas have been encountered and the volume scms to be str-adily increasing,
due possibly to the opening of new fissures in the earth, a lesultanl prompted
by the waves of hot air that are said
to come from that direction. A fierce
fire is alnady raging far back in the
workings and if the flames should reach
the deposits of coal dust known to lie in
the p)oms nothing could prevent a new
catastrophe which would have the rescuers for its victims.
The company officials have ordered
that exploring parties shall advance only as fast as the iwissage way can be
cleared of gas, ventilated and otherwlso
made safe.
��� So bad is tlie general idea of the
conditions in the mine that contrary to
all precedents in mine disasters, there
is no enthusiasm over joining the rescuing parties. Few volunteer for the
service and those who do enter are exercising the greatest caution. While
what appears to be the most reliable estimates on the number of victims are
near 200, there are many who insist
that the final list of dead will contain
many more names. Conspicuous among
these are Michael Hallahy. national organizer for the United Mine Workers
of Am.er.ca, who has assumed charge ol
the organization.   Mr. Hallahy says:
"I have made a house to house can
vass among  the  families here  and
certin there are 300 dead  men  in
One of the most serious dlfficultier
encountered, one that may explain the
delay in bringing bodies to the surface
is to get the bodies across the river tr
thtir former homes. The only direct
means of communication between the
two points is the "Sky Ferry" used by
the miners. This is a basket car travel
ling on a cable and will not hold a cas
ket alone, not to mention the men that
would have to accompany It to propel
the car. There are bridges some miles
above and below the mine but it would
be almost impnsible to have the caskets
cross the country on either side of the
river to and from the bridge. It may
be decided to erect a "Sky Ferry" on a
larger scale to accommodate the coffins
and their attendants.
Evidence of much suffering and distress among those dependent noon the
victims has already been disclosed and
steps have been taken to organize relief
Clark Adams, said to be the son oi
wealthy nnd indulgent parents, living in
New York, a young man just out of h'w
teens, Is said to have met death in thr
mine. Three months ago Adams sought
employment as a day hand at the mines.
He intended to leave for the east now
Sunday. . His body has not yet been
recovered but a summons has been sent
to his parents.
London, Dec. 21.���John Strong, inmate
of the Insane asylum, drowned himself

London, Dec. 21.���The Associated
Press is in a position to state on the
authority of the British admiralty, that
there is no truth in the assertion, published in the Standard today, that the
admiralty has decided to establish next
May a Pacific and North American
squadron, the base of which would probably be at Esquimau.
. "There is no shadov of foundation for
this story, it is the veriest buscombe;
it must be obvious to anvone who gives
the subject a moment's thought that
such a move would be the last thing we
w.ul think of at the present time," was
the statement by one of the highest officers of the admiralty.
The emphasis.of this denial Indicates
that the admiralty was anxious that the
report Bhoutd l>e promptly put at rest
with the view of allaying any suspicion
that might be aroused In America connecting the alleged formation of i Brit
ish Pacific fleet with the sailing of the
American battleship fleet.
