London, Aug. 21.���The cable dia-
patches received by English rirms interested in Chilean trade continue to
minimise the damage done to the business section ol Valparaiso. Thus rar
uo English rirms have suffered any
heavy loss to their business premises.
Some of the buildings were damaged
but none of them were destroyed.

exceeds the damage done by   the  fire.
Santiago has apparently suffered much
less."
Private cable dispatches from Valparaiso say:

POLICE WILL ORGANIZE
Chief  Jams   Proposes  Association   foi
Mutual  Assistance  and   Cn-op-
eration.
Chief \V. ft. Jams of the city police
(Qrcp if. t'luk'iivming io orsunize a police association for Kootenay for mil-
tuul assistant*,, which will render the
work in each city and disiriei caslei
and morq elTicient.
Seen Today, on the subject of the
invilaiioii to him to attend the convention of Canadian chief constables to
he held in Toronto next month, which
was read last night at the council
meetirm and referred to the police
commissioners, the chief remarked
that he bad no expectation and little
desire tu attend, He doubted whether
Hie experiences of Kastern chiefs
would he very helpful to Western policemen on account of the gfe&t
differences in conditions.
Tht* chief lien disclosed a project
he lias bei-n cursing for iwo years.
He BboWBd a Circular letter he bus
prepared t<> be sent to the chiefs of
the provincial police forces in each
district. The substance of the letter
is contained in the following sentences:
"I propose asking the chief of police of each city lu tbe Kootenays and
also the chief coustahles of the provincial police, lo attend a convention
here during the time of the fair In September, for the purpose or formint. an
association for mutual assistance iu
police matters.
���'I suijKfst that the first meeting
sliould take place here and afterward
periodically at such places as may be
agreed upon by those present.
"1 believe that such an assoeiaiion
would he of great help to the police in
the whole country.*'
The organisation of such an assocf'
ation aud QO-OperaUon among its mem'
hers, lhe chief points out, would, withoul any cosl, greatly reduce and expedite lhe work of all.
One of the most tedious and unsatisfactory tasks o il.e police in Kootenay
is that of keeping ttggfftl-U and sns-
pi eted characters on tlie move. I'tv
der the present condllions such persons ar-> merely sent from town to
town, and Nelson as llle center receives lhe largest. As it would defeat
the object of each city force, which is
merely to get rid of them, to give any
warning to lhe authorities (if the town
to which they are sent, no such warning is given, and tho cure is merely
temporary.
Chief Jarvis proposes such co-operation anjong ���l'*' police, civic and provincial, of the county of Koolenuy, as
will make o man "known lo the police" In any one town or disiriei
known everywhere by appearance.
Character and record, and that (he
movements of all suspecls shall ho
promptly reported.
lie believes that any extra clerical
work involved In the ' undertaking of
such correspondence would be far
mott than compensated hy ihe great
reduction nf work in identifying nnd
locating  undesirable  visitors.
Tlie suggeHtion has been siilmillied
to Ihe chiefs i��f poller. ,,f several cities and has met with Iheir cordial an
proval.
On Duty For Officers of
British Warships
A SEVERE REPRIMAND
Is Sentence Imposed on Navigation
Officer and Commander of
Battleship.
Portsmouth, England, Aug. 21.���The
court-inartial which tried Captain
'1 nomas B. S. Adair and Lieutenant
James H. Dathan, respectively lhe
commander and navigating officer of
the British battleship Montague, which
went ashore on May 30 _, has reprimanded Captain Adair and dismissed
him from his ship and has severely
i*' priniander Lieutenant Dathan, dismissing him from hig ship and depriving him of two years' entry.
The verdict is regarded by all the
Loudon morning papers as just and as
Ueiug inevitable, hut great sympathy
is extended to Captain Adair and
Lieutenaail Dathan on account of the
-idmittediy fatiguing circumstances of
the case. They are considered to be
the victims of ill fortune rather than
carelessness. Bod were officers of
excellent record and the evidence
showed that they were tired out by 48
hours more or leas incessant duty.
Numerous suggestions are made as to
Uie outcome of the disaster to the
Montague, the first being that the fog
signal a-! Lundy appears to have Inadequate range, and into this the hoard
or trade inquiry will probably investigate. The second suggestion is one
that a single navigation officer on a
man-of-war is not sufficient. Captain
Adair's orders were to carry out important wireless experiments, and lhe
evidence showed that he was almost
constantly engaged in the wireless
room.
ln some quarters it fs suggested
that the judgment is a concession to
the public disappointment over the loss
of the battleship, and the Standard
complains that the government has
taken the moment when the nation
has been deprived of a first-class battleship to still further cut the naval
program.
Pique and Resignation.
Secretar of Slate Justice O'Farrell.
who was acting as secretary of the in
terlor, has resigned from the cabinet
This action was due to ptque, because
President Palma criticized him for not
being in close touch iwlh the insurrec
tionary movement and for not slrongl>
grasping the situation. This culminat
od in the appointment yesterday of
General Rafael Montalvo secretary of
public works to the dictatorship of lhe
military operations against the insur
gents.
CONFIRMED BY TRUSTEES
City  School   Board  Requires  Non-Resident Pupils to Help Pay for Their
Education  in  Nelson.
The adjourned    regular   meeting ot
the board of school trustees was held
last night iu Dr. Arthur's office, those
presenl being Hr. Arthur, Ur. Hall, H.
3. Steel and F. W. Swannell. The minutes of tbe last meting were read and
approved. The salaries for August
ami small accounts totalling $5.55 were
ordered to be paid.
The salary of Miss Wade, the new
appointee of lhe teaching staff of the
public school, was fixed at $50 a
mouth, the minimum rigure.
Dr. Arthur reported recommending
$0 ami $'J for short and long terms respectively as lees for nonresident pu
pils, based on the per capita cost ot
education in the public school, exclusive of tlie government gram. Tbe report was adopted and Ibe fees for the
fall lerm. $<i. were made payaible to
Ihe principal on enrollment.
There being no other business the
board adjourned.
Edison's New Battery.
Montreal, Aug. 21.���The famous inventor, Thomas A. I.dlson, staled here
today that the perfection of his accu
tnlll a live storage battery may mean a
great deal to the Canadian West. He
adds that the battery can be applied
lo wheat harvest machinery and thoroughly believes harvesting will he operated in this way ln the near future.
Mr. Edison also believes that the electric fertilising process just discovered
by a German professor on the Rhine
will in the near future be successfully
applied to the worn out lands ln Eastern and Western Canada. Being asked
if he thought Marconi would span the
ocean with his wireless system he replied that the Italian would have succeeded ere now, but he went ahead
and got married, thus delaying the
trick, it will come, however, tn the
near future.
PACIFIC MAIL STRANDED.
E-fforts to Float Manchuria Are So Far
a Failure.
Honolulu, Aug. 21.���The efforts to
float ihe Pacific Mail steamship Manchuria, which was stranded of Rabbit
island haivlng failed a cable may be
sent asking for tugs from San Francisco. Another attempt will be made
to haul the liner off the reef at high
tide today. The Manchuria lies unmoved and there is no immediate danger of her breaking up, but It fs believed it will be impossible to get her
from her present [Hisition. It is reported that the steamer is leaking and
thart the pumps are at work.
The steamship company made arrangements for accommodations for
the night at Waimanalo and the plantation managers threw oj>en their
homes lo many of the passengers. The
road io Honolulu from Wadmauola
over the mountains Is a difficult one
and has heen rendered much more so
by rains. It Is believed that the passengers will not arrive here before
night.
Still Throwing Bombs.
Warsaw Aug. 21.���Cap   Golchew   of
Siedlice was killed and two policemen
were wounded today by the explosion
of a bomb al Giedlice.
NEW USE FOR TRAMWAY
Citizen    Suggest.   That   Cars    Might
Serve as Traveling  Letter  Boxes
for Collection.
A suggestion which merits consider-
iiiimi by lbe tramnvuy committee uf the
cily council has been made by a cltl-'
zen resident on the rar line. It is
lhat the tranicars shall bo eqnliiued
with letter boxes .for the mailing of
letters, and that Iheir contents bo
turned into the postoffice twice a day.
So far as known to the author of the
suggestion, Berlin, Germany, is the
only city where such a system Is now
in force. But that need not retard the
citizens of the progressive capital ot
Kootenay.
It is pointed out that the cost of a
letter box on each car would be insig-
nilicaut and the extra work lnvposetl
on conductors practically nothing. All
letters for mailing must, of course, be
lully stamped. Clearing ut Lhe post
office need only be done twice a day.
nt li p. m. for the coast mail, and
rrotn the last car al nlghl for all
others.
The street car service is dally be.
coming more popular in Nelsou, and
the parcel delivery system Is greatly
appreciated by the merchants. "Why,"
asiks the proposer of the performance
of another utility, "should they not be
used to carry letters to the post office
when the cost in time and money
would be trivial?"
The Inspiration of the suggestion
was utterly commonplace, and is probably a familiar experience to nearly
every married man ln Nelson. As told
by the mover:
"About 11) o'clock last night my wife
asked me if I were going down (own.
I said I was nol. She told nie lhal
she wanted a letter mailed lhal nlghl.
So 1 had lo go down although I hail
no olher object In going. As I went
n car passed me, and I thought, 'Now,
why couldn't the car carry my letter
and save me from walking half a mile
or more und bank?' "
The Rpheine. If adopted, would undoubtedly be widely Imitated antl
would spread lhe fanis' of Nelson ln n
way lhal would gladden the hearts of
the 20000 club toilers, and withoul
expense.
"It ls now "up lo" Aldermnn Amiable
nnd his colleagues of tho tramway
committee.
CAR STRIKE IN GEORGIA.
Strikers Offer to Submit Grievances to
Arbitration.
Macon, On., Aug. 21.���All care of
Ihe Macon Hallway & Light company
were called In last night, the few men
and conductors who remain loyal to
the company finding It practically Impossible lo oporulo tho cars. Hundreds of people, the strike hands and
their sympathizers, paraded tho streets
rejoicing In the calling In of the cars.
There were several small riots, a
few peopln Injured, hut none seriously.
An exploding torpedo laid ou lhe track
by one of the strike sympathizers hit
1'ollco Officer Lavender   und    he was
taken home In an ambulance in a aeri-
OU6 ao_.dlt.on. The strikers ottered to
leave their ooatentlona with an arbitration committee and the company at
midnight agreed to this. Mayor
Brydget. Smith will Issue a proclamation today calling for the regular op-
"ruling of ihe cars, ln default of which
the franchise will be cancelled.
FATE OF EIFFEL TOWER.
Valuable   Asset  of   France   In  Case   of
War.
The ultimate fate of the grent Eiffel
tower in Paris has been ln doubt for
some time, but it is not likely now
that it will ever be pulled down, says
Winnipeg pajier, as the lease held by
the proprietors from the municipality
has been extended from 11110 to 1916,
and It Is unde'rstood that long before
the expiration of that period the |>er-
manent use of the structure will have
been determined. Whatever may be
decided, it Beem secrtain that the lofty
edifice in itself offers advantages
which It would be foolish to throw
away. To begin wllh, It Is a huge
lightning conductor, capable of guaranteeing a great part of I'aris against
damage by electricity. There are in
struments on top of it which register
all sorts of atmospherical impressions,
and give the local weather prophets
much valuable information. Moreover, it might be a valuable asset in
the national defense. If France were
at war on the eastern frontier her
armies might be directed from Its
summit. It would become the central
signal.-union from which all the wireless Instruments would be directed.
From it the head of the general staff
could direct the movements of every
army corps In the field. If Paris were
again besieged the Eiffel tower would
be the eyes and ears of the place, a
practically unassailable means of communication with the outer world. Even
If wireless communication were interrupted. It is said that visual signals
could be read 80 miles away, or as far
as Rouen.
GLEANED AT GREENWOOD.
Particulars of the  Recent Fire Which
Devoured Midway.
Special tn The Dally Canadian.)
Greenwood. Aug. 21.���It Is evident
tlial some burglar was responsible for
the fire which burned the townsite office, the pnsiofi'if,'. Ham & Co.'s
store and au empty building owned by
Norris in Midway Saturday morning.
About 2:-U o'clock several people were
awakened by a shot or explosion, but
could not locate it. Nearly an hour
later JameB Bush, one of those awakened, discovered the tire. It is supposed that some. blankets or other
goods placed on the safe when blown,
either caught lire or the burglar fired
the building in resentment for finding
little of value in the safe.  .
The po-toft'lee Is in Ham & Co.'s
store, but the safe is seldom ' locked
and Utile of value left In it. Friday
night the [mstinaxier'ss partner, liutt la
the building, inadvertently closed the
sale. It was ouly utter the fire waa
over and the ruins cold enough to explore Ihut the discovery was made
lhat the safe had been blown.
Later tn the day some articles ot
merchandise and some small matters
from the safe were found by the river
a half mile away. Hani & Co. owned
one of the store buildings the firm occupied, on which aiud their entire
stock they carried J2000 insurance.
The stock would Invoice about $6000
and their loss be over $-000.
The postoffice building carried $500
Insurance In the Western, and* was
owned by Mrs. Mary Munro.
Municipal  Light Pay*.
Calgary, Aug. 21.���The Calgary electric llghl plant Is a little more than
paying expenses at the present time,
ami long before the lirsl of the coming year sliould be paying handsomely.
Hy April 1 Ihe plaint was paying ordinary expenses. During the mouth of
June Ihe plant paid ordinary expenses
and aboul half of the charges upon Interesi and sinking fund.
This year, according to tho estimate
at preseut, which esiimute seems more
than likely lo be realized, the plauc
will pasy for ordinary expenses and
have qulle a neat little sum over alter
lhat. The business; being done is increasing rapidly. With the addition
of the new plant, which will be Installed ln a few weeks, the earning
capacity of Ihe planl will be doubled,
wlille the only additional expense outside of the coal aooount will be inti't-
esl und sinking fund.

The trustees of the Hume school
took -.Wantage of the presence of the
chief commissioner of lands and worka
lu the city yesterday and waited on
him In the government buildings at 5
p. m. to present the case of their district for a new school to be built at
the expense of the government. While
the minister was noncommittal, the
matter not being directly connected
wlth his own department, his reply
was not unfavorable.
Messrs. G. Gilchrist and G. H. Playle
represented the district, E. A. Crease
the third member of the board, being
absent at the coast Mr. Gilchrist
briefly stated the requirements of tha
district, referring to the utterly unsatisfactory nature of the present accommodations, and to the steps that
were taken some time ago lo provide
new ones, including the acquisition of
building lots.
Mr. Green explained that in the
matter of school buildings the department of lands and works invariably
acts only on the recommendation of
the department of education. He was
not ln a position to make any definite1
promises nor even lo explain the poat.
pouemeut of the decision to build.
But be assured Messrs. Gilchrist and
l'tayle that be would oommuni-aste at
once with the minister of education,
Hon. F. J. Fulton, and secure for them
at least an early and definite reply.
The trustese thanked him and withdrew.
Later, to a representative of Tha
Dally Canadian, Mr. Green said:
"While I could not make a definite
promise on behalf of a department
other than my own, without consulta.
tion wllh the head of that department,
"l may say that, personally, 1 am la
favor of building the school at once.
"1 really don't know why it haa
been deferred; I presume that the tenders, or some of them, were too high,
or otherwise unacceptable. AU the departments of the government exercise
the strictest economy.
"But I quite appreciate the situation.
The residents of Hume district really
need a new school building, and 1
think, under the circumstances, they
are entitled to have it built for them
by the government.
"I have no doubt thnt it will ba
done within a very short time."
Mr. Green left for Kaslo this morn

Uolse.
The men were engaged ln dumping
ore Into the furnace from the top
top when there was an explosion of
accumuluted gas. The flames enveloped
Andrew Marsley and he fell over unconscious. His brother George went
to his assistance, but he, too, was
overcome and Michael Boise, who followed him, was also rendered Insensible. In spite ot their realization that
the same fate awaited them, each of
the eleven meu remaining attempted
to succor those first attacked, and every one in his turn v.'as overcome. By
this time notice ot the accident had
reached the workmon below and the
gas was shut off. The men were then
rescued and taken to the Companions'
Emergency hospital. The three named
died. The others were promptly re-
Bucltated but only two. John Marsley
ami George Olu, were able to go U>

aN8EATED FINANCE  MINISTER.
ln announcing in its Issue uf Sunday
th* uns-aiing by thf election court oi
tho Hun.  W. S   Fielding, finance minister of   Canada,    our    contemporary
breuka into a rhapsody over this greal ���
and good man, and of tbe unsmircbed  \
record ol hiin who in this case i.-> made  j
tu Bntfer in consequence of the "undue '
zeal'   ior political  parti]   of Ins India*
crtet supporter:;.    To  those  irtw have  [
r-sKid the said editorial and who have
followed the record of the Finance mln-  j
lster, it  will not   be B   mftttei  of surprise that we are nut able tu take the
view uf our contemporary of that po*
Uticaj   record  and Of  him   who is  the j
object of that rhapsody.    Our view  la,
however, entirely consistent  with  the
facts of the cas>_\
Onr readers will doubtless remembei
that a convention was held i:i Ottawa
iu 1903 which was attended by hundreds of protnlnenl Liberals from all
pa rth of Canada, Mr. Fielding iiichul
ed, at which various principles wei
enunciated as the fundamental principles of that party. Tiny are doubtless familiar with them, as they have
frequently appeared In print. And the
question will naturally occur to any
one who now recalls the resolutions
which were then passed, aud the Inter
veniug record of the government representing those who passed them, Is
there one, and if so. which one, of tbe
foundatlun principles then enunciated,
uf the resolutions men passed, to
which that party, or the government
representing it, has since that time
paid the respect of recognition ajid
obedience in the 10 years during which
they have been in power? The only
reply which we can make to this
question���and winch we now make,
subject to correction ii we are In error���is that each one of them has
been repeatedly, constantly and flagrantly violated, No effort, and latterly scarcely any pretence, has been
made to show that affairs of the country have been carried on by ihis Liberal government���the government of
which this finance minister wax a
member���in accordance with the principle! then enunciated. On the contrary, the government baa even gloried
in so doing. Is this a commendable
record ?
��� **���.*
As editor of the Halifax Chronicle,
the chief organ of that party iu the
province of Nova Scotia. Mr. Fielding
came Into prominence In the easly
confederation era as an anti-confederate, advocating annexation to tlie
United states as preferable to confederation for that province. Becoming
leader of his party and premier of the
legislative assembly, he managed to
secure control for his party of the local machinery, and hy padded voters
lists he and his party have retained
power in that province almost continuously until the present time. We
Inow whereof we write and the means
used by the Liberal party In retaining
power. The result may show "smartness"; the means used must have
been base. In the early 'Sua he and
bis party were sturdy advocates ot
commercial/ union with the United
States, of a fiscal policy which at the
least would discriminate against the
empire and would have resulted In the
annexation of Canada to the Cnited
States, as the Hou. Edward Blake admired in his famous Malver-g speech
of that time. He opposed the con*
struction of the Canadian Pacific railway, blatantly joining those who armed themselves against it by getting
u(i a bogus opposition company, their
aim In the matter being the defeat uf
the bill for that purpose which was
then before the house of commons, as
the leader of his party in the house
saw. and which he (Hon. A. Mackenzie)  voted against.
At the last election of the Dominion parliament, he and his allies
managed to secure the defeat of
Ji 1. Borden iu Halifax; but by what
means? By throwing into Halifax un
the eve of election a large amount of
money contributed fur that purpose
by Portland (Me.*���at the time stated
to nave been about ISu.uuu���for use
among the electors to defeat the lead-
���r ot the opposition, who had strenuously advocated the restriction in the
charter granted to the (i. T. P. Kail-
way company of Portland as the eastern terminal of the railway and making it necessary tu use an Eastern
l a ta llan port There is no question
that it was the money from Portland
which defeated Horden, un patriotically
made use of bj the minister of finance
and bis associates to further the interests ol a foreign  port.
Hm why continue to dive further
Into the past record of the minister of
finance? His record Is to us a
mosl unsavory one. Vet it js that
record which, to onr contemporary, la
so inspiring: To us, however, political tergiversation excites only opprobrium. If we worship at all, we greatly prefer that the object of that .worship be more worthy of It than such a
clay god.

While ii would not be politic to announce the amount of money the government is prepared to Bpend in the
('instruction of the new provincial
quarters here, at leas; before the tenders are opened and work begun, it
will b-.1 some satisfaction to read ihe
announcement that every convenience
Will be provided and a model building in every way will be erected. The
action of the chief commissioner or

Sume mailers of detail as to the ma-
ler.al of which the new building Is to
l>e constructed will have to be settien
before tenders are called for, but the
initiation of the work will not be delayed.
The visit of the chief commissionet
had uo  political  significance.
The announcement made in the news
columns   of   the   Canadian  yesterday
ihat  Immediate steps are to be taken
to commence construction uf the new
courthouse   for   the city and dlstrlol
will be hailed with  pleasure by every
resfdanl o the Kootenays,   The necessity   for  this  new   structure  has  been
feii for fl long time ami frequent comment on the Inadequate and unsuitable
quarters  in  which  his  majesty's  business  has  been   transacted    has    mure
than once been the subject of resolutions by the board of trade, the grand
jury   and   or  judges  themselves.    The
present   government,   while always  admitting  the    crying    need   tor  a   new
building,  have had  a general  linlnclal
status of the province to face and  it
has not  been until quite recently  that
the administration  could  see its  way
clear to provide the necessary hinds tor
the work.    We believe ll will be generally conceded that It has heen better to
wall   till   the   credit   of   the   province
could   be   re-established   and   provision
made for a building In every way agitable than to have taken earlier measures and to have erected a courthouse
unworthy of the city and the country.
There is always some  virtue ln  patience especially when it results ln tne
production  of   more   suitable  premises
than   more  cheaply   financed   ventures
could have    produced.      Thut  such  a
