h'he  court   will   not   sit   again   until
Kfter C. .1. Tuttle's evidence was all
ken  yesterday  afternoon,  four olher
���finesses were examined.
!_li_al*eth  Reece deposed    that    sinks  living  at   the  time  about  a  mile
Tom  Lever's cabin.    She suw the fires
flung the right of way. Smoke, sparks
Mui ashes went us fur as her house,
the  ashes  falling  in   tbe  spring  from
fvJiieh  she drew water.
She had lived there for three weeks
aud knew of no other fires In the vi*
( cfnity except that on the right uf way.
Tlie house was burned about  noon of
the 2Srd.
Morenco Bullen gave similar evi*
dence, as did also Cornelius Ueece and
Thomas Plants. All agreed that the
whole country wus on fire on July s\B,
L904, and that a high wind was blowing.
When court resumed this morning
Cameron's evidence was taken. Ho
thut he had lost nothing by tbe
and bud no interest in the case,
pn the morning of July 2.S, litO-J, he,
Qualffe's request, and paid by
hiaiffe, begun fighting the fire und
fn iin ned lor two days. He thought
Jul] 88, in the morning, it waa
Ilm, with very little wind.
Id oss examined by Mr. Hodwell���He
|d nol know that an old Bra had been
uiuing or smoldering for a week He
at work on bis own place and nt
fs! thought the fire w&i not serious,
is positive that thore was no
to speak of."
���tr. Hodwell allowed the witness to
111 ttt a conversation hinted at on his
���reel examination. He had ��� said to
"Hy Jove, you have done it now, old
���How; you're in for it."
'.ualffe had    said:     "It    was    quiet
alien   we   started, bul   this   wind   has
taken it awuy from    ns.      Hut    get a
bucket and help us   and    keep    your
pnouth shut."
The   witness  admitted   that   he   had
���kept silent; had not attended the flro
���nquest;   had  "kept his  mouth   shut"
|until ahout  two weeks ago.    He took
up his  ranch  four years ago, but  has
ever sold   any   timber    to   lhe    mill
Company.     He   has   good   timber,   but
puts ft   Inlo  fence  )tosts.      Was    sure
Uiai  the mill    company    had   bought
nothing from hiiu.
At  this point the witness, peroelv-
|n:* or thinking that    he perceived, tho
drifi   of  tbe  questions,  exclaimed
oily:      "Perhaps      you      think    I'm

Fowler   elicited   nothing   of  Impor*
Sg James  Manning, teamster, was next
Palled.    Mr.   Hodwell  objected   that   he
lad   not   kissed   the  book.    Many  wit-
esses, he snid. abstained.
His   lordship���I   don't   blame   them.
If Ihey  have    nny    rogurd    for  Iheir
health  they shouldn't.      Swearing    hy

Mr. Hodwell���I should    be    content,
ny lord, but I know that    many    wit-
|SBS think they are not bound if they
not kissed the book.
Mr. Davis���My learned friend seems
|o be an expert on the Bible,
Mr. Hodwell���I can't return tbo ac
The witness told little of the fire
lhal was new. He thought Ihe clearing of the right of way properly and
V'arefnlly should hnve lieen worth $1&0
nu acre. Quuiffe's piece was the hard-
I'st In the road, on account of vines,
old  -slashings*  slabs and  stumps.
Ho did not see Quaiffe do nuy piling
or firing.   A small pathway, eight or
���> fet   wide,  was cut  on one side of
the rtgh) of way.   He knew of.no oth-
but brush wns piled, he knew, to-
[ward  the centre of the right of wav.
Mr. Davis���D|,| you ever make a different statement in writing?
Mr. Hodwell objected that Mr. Davis
[was cross-examining his own witness
Without   having   proved   hlm   adverse.
Mr. Davis announced that bo would
show tbe witness' present evidence
wus contradicting the testimony bo
gave at tbe fire inquest, and intimated that, he suspected that the witness
had been seen hy some one, "not of
course of counBel or solicitors on tho
other side.
Mr. Davis then proceeded to take up
the witness' testimony at tho fire Inquest    He varied  slightly.
He did not see the fire start when
he suw it first; everything was alight
along the right of way. He helped
Quaiffe with water buckets, lie knew
nothing of Stewarts' camp at or near
Lever's house.
Argument again arose as to Mr. Davis'  methods.
Mr. Hodwell���My learned friend fs
trying to road his own brief to tha
The witness' conduct led his lordship to ask: "Have you ever given evidence In court before?" Witness
said be bad.
Witness said he saw two men on tho
right of way as the fire escaped. They
wero idling up brush on a fire. There
was "quite a wind blowing, and hn
thought they should not have been
feeding the fire. The flames were already outside the right of way and
spreading up the hill.
Mr. Hodwell drew attention to the
fact that in ihe witness' written statement, it first appeared that he said
he saw two men working on tbe right
of way trying to put out the fire. That
was scratched out and "pillI ig brush
on  the fire" was Inserted instead.
tne witness' former written statement wns then entered as evidence
nnd read to tho jury. He described
regular methods of clearing, to which,
he said, Quaiffe did not conform. All
brush, he said, should be piled in the
centre of the right of way. Burning
should be done only at night, only for
a short distance at a time, and with
plenty of men and water available. All
the subcontractors except Quaiffe followed that method.
To the court witness said thnt his
first statement was a mistake. He
did not remember any change being
Mr. Ross offered to make an explanation. Mr. Hodwell objected. Mr.
IJavls offered to have Mr. Ross enter
the box. Mr. Hodwell thought it unnecessary.
His lordship���I don't think It matters at all.
Mr. Bodwell���I withdraw my objection.
Foreman H. Bird asked if It were
necessary to 'sit on Saturday. It was
then  agreed not to sit on  Saturday.
The court then rose.
When the court resumed this after-
noon at 2 p. m.. Manning again enter-
er the tiox.
\V. R. Ross, K. C, made a statement that he had taken fn long hand
Mr. Manning's statements; all changes
hnd been made at Manning's instance
and  before the  statement  was signed.
Mr. Hodwell then allowed Manning
to go.
J. Waters, superintendent of the Elk
Lumber company, was next called and
his examination  is  now  proceeding.
Pocket of Escaped Gas   In    Main Subway  Results in Death, Injury and
Destruction of Property.
Philadelphia, Oct. 5.���A terrific explosion of illuminating gas in the subway of the Philadelphia Rapid Transit company, under contract at Sixth
and Market streets today resulted in
the death of seven men, the injuring
of about u dozen others and caused a
property damage of thousands of dollars. Resides the seven known to be
dead it is said that at least three
others ure buried under tons of earth
In tbe wrecked subway.
lOxtraordfiinry efforts nre being
made to clear Ihe excavation, but It
will ho lute in the day before this cau
be accomplished. The explosion oc
curred shortly before 7 o'clock and in
consequence of the early hour but few
workmen  bud gathered  there.
The explosion was caused hy a leak
in lhe gas main thai had been Improperly repaired last night. The escaping gas formed iu a pocket of the subway and it Is believed lhal a workman with a letup ignited the gus. The
corner of Sixth and Market streets Is
one of the business sections of the
city, but thore was fortunately little
trufiic there when the explosion oc
Philadelphia^ Pa., Oct. 5.���When the
explosion occurred Its force wrecked
the subway for half a block and all
the heavy timbering and other structural work, including tons of earth,
fell into the excavation. Just as tho
gas blew np a double-team dirt cart
wns being driven directly across the
covered subway. The vehicle, horses
and men were blown high fn Ihe air
uml the horses and cart fell into the
bole. The driver landed In the street
and was only sllghily hurt.
Several workmen standing near a
derrick were blown across the street
and either killed or injured, and u
number of pedestrians were hurt hy
falling glass and signs. Those portions of the subway that were not
covered wiih dirt burst Into flames,
and for time no person ventured near
the place for fear of further explo.
Firemen were quickly on the spot
hut water was of little use and dirt
was resorted to.   In a couple of hours
all the flames had been extinguished
except those from the large main. As
Boon as the fire hud been extinguished
in this manner hundreds of men were
put to work clearing out the wrecked
In addition to the damage done to
Hie subway, to the gas mains and water mains and tlie electric light and
telephone conduits, all the windows
from Fifth to Seventh Streets on Market sireet and on Foran square, on
Sixth street, both north and souih of
Market, were broken and thousands
or dollars' worth of goods In the shop
windows were damaged. Signs wero
torn from the sides and walls of
Victoria Ratepayers Defeat the Water
Works  Bylaw by Big Majority.
(Special lo The Daily  Canadian.)
Victoria, Oct. 5.���There is still great
dissatisfaction among Conservatives
here und un tbe mainland at the fact
that the new editor of the Colonist is
a pronounced liberal aud some more
serious talk of another dully puper being established. It is said it is Inevitable that such wilt be done as Conservatives cannot stand for the present arrangements.
Many citizens got a great surprise
today as a resiut of the vote on the
water works bylaw, to borrow (100,000
for improvements. The bylaw was
killed by a big majority. Water Is
not scarce in Victoria., but it Is filthy,
uud next summer the city will be up
against a real crisis In connection
with the problem of an Improved supply.
Owing to the scarcity of cars and
their inability to secure the same, the
Nanaimo lumber mill will be closed
down for the next week or teu days
until sufficient cars can be obtained
to move their lumber. There are
plenty of orders booked and delivery
promised. At the present time over
150 cars of lumber have been promised.
It is very likely thut Alderman
Stewart will oppose Mayor Morley,
who. It is said, will run again at the
approaching civic elections.
Mystery Cleared by Surrender of Sua*
pect, but No Jury Found.
Albany, N. V., Oct 5.���Two weeks
have elapsed since Uie beginning of
the trial of John C. Hammond, inJicl
ed for the murder of his wife in this
city last November, hut thus fai all
efforts to complete the jury have been
unavailing, although f>__ men have
been examined. This is a re:>rd foi
ihis county, for only 10 have quuiified
as jurors. Panel after panel has beon
drawn without success, which facts
are the basis for a motion for u
change of venue by the defence today.
Justice Glenn denied the motion.
The crime for which Hamnxnd Mas
been indicted was a somewhat sensational one. The body of his .v.f< was
found packed in n trunk at thilr homo
with strong evidence that ahe hi-i been
strangled to death. Her husband
could not he found. While the police
of the ntire county were &oaivhn:*g

the murder, he walked Into police
headquarters in this city and surrendered himself, after m.ikiiif a com

Test Case to Recover Immense Fortune
Frenzied   Financiers   Make  Enormous Haul on New York
Stock Markets.
New York. Oct. C���The World today
says. "A Huit, an echo of the sensation
attendant iiikjii the collapse of the International Mercantile Agency a year
ugo, was begun yesterday in the supreme court by the McClure Adjustment company against 16 prominent
business men in tbe United States and
Canada, and also against Thomas N.
McCaulI, the Canadian who organized
ihe institution. Bach of the defendants was a director of the agency and
It is alleged by the, McClure company
ihat each conspired with McCaulI, who
disappeared soon after the failure, to
sell to tbe Investing public Its stock,
which they knew to he worthless.
The defendants are Harry K. Pom-
eroy, president of the New York Stock
exchange; Malo M. Belding, the silk
importer; S. F. McKlnnon, a merchant
of Toronto; Robert Mackay, a capitalist of Montreal; John D. McFarlan, a
wholesale iajwr man of Montreal;
George W. Sadler aod .lames Robinson of Montreal, W. H. George of Toronto, Lerol Baldwin. M. M. Belding,
Jr., Duncan D. Parmly and Charles A.
Sanderson of New York, and Edward
L. Gold of Hrantford, John Flett of Toronto and Delos P. Phelps of Chicago.
The McClure Adjustment company,
the plaintiffs, was organized a little
while ago to undertake such action as
that of the International Mercantile
agency. It holds now 11,200,000 worth
of stock of the McCaulI company,
which was purchased by tbe public
and which, it Is alfcged, was sold for
the interest of the defendants named.
The stock has been assigned to lt
(I'he McCaulI Adjustment company)
and tbe complaint In the case sets
forth that each one of teh defendants,
who were directors of the International Mercantile agency, became such at
the dissolution of the McCaulI company and for the express consideration
of allotments of stock ranging from
1000 to 50,000 shares. Further, the
charge Is set up that the reputation
and prominence of these men was the
means by which McCaiill deluded the
public and specially the clients of the
McClure company.
In this action $1,200,000 is sought to
be recovered from the defendants, but
il was announced yesterday by Dim-
can McClure, president of the McClure
company, and George B. SIdener, its
general counsel, that the case was
more of a test than anything else, although they fell sure of ultimately obtaining judgment for the entire

women, after they had been drifting
for i'i hours, They had almost cot*
lapSOd from exhaust ion and were carried on hoard the Kohsy Chang, being
unable to walk. Chief Engineer Dowse

"Previous to starting on the voyage
to Hongkong the Charterhouse landed
700 emigrants at Hoi How. She departed at _{::I0 p. m. September 28,
bound for Hongkong with 97 persons
on hoard, Including six Hritish officers,
the doctor and a full cargo of sugar.
Six hours later she was overtaken by
a typhoon and provisions were made
to ride out the gale, the officers being
posted at their respective stations.
The wind increased, carrying away the
masts and the vessel was tossed like
a cork on the mountainous waves.
The engines were -slowed down but
the winds increased, and between 8
und It o'clock p. in. on September 29
word was passed along that the ship
was foundering. The boats were made
ready and the crew lined up on deck.
"Owing to the heavy sea it was
found impossible to launch the boats,
but the passengers and crew got Into
them and awaited the sinking of the
ship. They hoped that the boats
would chance to float when the ship
went down. In tbe darkness and the
danger there was an entire absence of
panic. The officers did their duty
calmly, and the Chinese passengers
and crew emulated the officers by
their courage in the presence of death.
When finally the charterhouse settled between the waves only the after
boat got away. The others were
"The others were smashed. The
ship's officers were in an after boat
which capsized. I managed to reach
a raft containing seven Chinese. Afterward I saw Engineer Forbes and
Maurmann upon another raft. They
called out to me that they were all
right. I afterward lost sight of all
craft until Sunday, when I met a raft
carrying two firemen. We kept togeth
er all day and toward evening found a
vacant raft which 1 lashed to the one
I was on. We were cramped for space
and found It impossible to lie down to
sleep. The next day we sighted a
lifeboat but it disappeared tbe following morning."

bis brother-in-law, W. C. Rudd, will admit tbat they know where he Is. He
has not attended church for three

the "murder" doctors, as they called
the board of health physicians, were

tn the public schools in the Williams-
burg section of Brooklyn, 1500 women,
nearly all of them Italians, stormed
the school builtftng in an effort to
reach the little ones. Before the riot

For several days physicians of the
board of health have been examining
Ihe eyes and throats of the pupils.
Contagious affection of the eyes had
spread from the homes of the Italians
iu the vicinity of the school and the
doctors were directed to make an Investigation to learn the cause and nature of the disease. A number of pupils on going to their homes told their
parents that the "murder** doctors
wanted to cut Iheir throats and frensy,
tnat does not listen to reason, spread
among the mothers of the  pupils.
Today they decided to make an investigation in a body and marched to
the school building 1500 strong.
Teachers who were warned of the approaching trouble locked the doors and
windows of the building and sent a
cstll for assistance to a nearby police
station. Before the police had arrived the women rushed toward the main
eutranee of the school building and
finding the way barred against them,
made frantic efforts to batter down
the door. One had been smashed
when the vanguard of the police squad
approached the scene and sought to
put a sudden end to the trouble. The
women turned upon the policemen and
tore their clothing, scratched their
faces and put them out before a detail of 15 more officers reached the
scene. After the reinforcements came

the rioters  from  the 'square.
When the woman who was arrested
was arraigned In the police court and
asked by the magistrate to account
Tor her conduct, she replied: "What
would you do if you knew the "murder" doctors wore cutting the throats
of your children? I will not let them

Severul serious riots of a similar nature of the one of today have occurred
In vorious sections of the great city.

Premier and Gosnell Present Case for B. G.
Railway, Fishery, Forest aad Water
Rights and Monetary Claims
of Province.
Hon. Richard McBride, who left
on Tuesday morning for Ottawa to attend the conference of provincial premiers, went well equipped to present
the case of Brinish Columbia. He waa
accompanied by R. E. Gosnell, formerly editor of Uie Colonist, who prepared
tbe case for the province when Hon.
James Dunsmuir attended the first
The matters to be taken up are
many and of great importance. Apart
from tbe question of "better terms,'
which may be given the first place
there are severe* things of more than
passing interest. One that bas recently cropped up as a result of tbe
Forestry association to conference; is
the question of who owns the beds
of navigable or semi-navigable
streams. The governmenl of Ontario
claims an absolute right to dispose oi
these sub-aqueous lands, which claim
ls being contested very forcibly by tbe
Dominion. So far as ls known the
subject bas never been placed before
the authorities of this province for decision, but it will most likely iorm a
theme of animated discussion at the
conference that opens next Monday.
Dual control of the fisheries has
also caused a considerable amount of
friction. There has been mention
made of the province relinquishing Its
authority In consideration of some adequate return by the Federal authorities. Such a disposition of the trouble
was mooted originally In Quebec, and
was received with a large measure at���*
favor. If some principle can be decided upon by the assembled leaden ut
local governments, there ls a reasonable probability of an equitable arrangement being arrived at
Another question that has -ajsed
trouble Is another matter ot dual con
trol. The provincial legislature Ib empowered to grant charters to rai.wava
running wholly within British Columbia, but at any time, an act of the
Dominion pariament can declare the
same works as of benefit to Canada aB
a whole and assume control. Iu this
connection there has been a large
amount of friction, particularly regarding branches of the large railway
systems, that has resulted ln acrimonious debates In the local house and an
unwarranted amount of mud sh..gin_.
Indian reserves, also, and the actual
status of the reversionary Interest will
certainly come up for discussion. Ontario has claimed an absolute right to
these lands on the demise of the las;
of the holders and In respect to the
Sougbees reserve adjacent to Victoria
tbe proposed removal of the occupants has brought about an interesting
Btate of affairs. The premier holds, oc .
authority of the attorney general as
legal adviser to the crown, that In the
event of the Indians on the reserve
mentioned being removed the landr-
now held by them revert to the province. This, In his opinion, ha. been
so far decided that a crown grant has
been prepared in favor of the oil/ ot
the portion north of the railway, where
It is proposed to locate the new sciool
and a public park. Until a decision
has been arrived at the document: haj
not been signed.
Tbe Peace river grant of 3,500,000
acres given to the Dominion uy tho
Island railway act and its final disposition will also come up for ducus
sion. There was mention made of i:
being used as a foundation for a provincial university by the devotion of
the money received from sales io thta-
purpose. Probably the most active
agents In this connection were members of the Methodist conference held
recently ln Victoria. As the Dominion
had a survey party In the fUld for '.he
past two years looking over th- lands
In question, and it is believaj Is by
now in posessslon of a scheme of delimitation, there ls every probability ot
this matter coming up.
Whether tho Pacific coast Is to he
slven a national free port or nol Is an-
nthst question that Mr. McBiido will
take up. The awakening of the Orient
and the coming battle for -lyremacy
<n trade with the Far Kust. in Its re-
latlon to Canada against th: United
States and Mexico, Is a very live topic
and the premier expects to return here
with a> declaration on the -jhject
It will be probably a couji3 of
months before Mr. McBride returns.
The conference of premiers will, he ue-
Heves, consume the balance of October

There ure two centers ot political activity in Ontario at tht- present time
both of which is Interesting In the
ethical ideals presented by a study of
eaoh separate case. The election of
Hon. C. S. Hyman is being disputed on
the ground that a corps ot corruption-
lata engineered an elaborate system of
graft. Hyman is a member of the
federal government and il the evidence may he believed, is not much
better off in the selection ol election
agents than the recently disqualified
finance minister.
It ls loo soon to pronounce as to the
probable outcome of the Investigation
but there is an apparently growing
laxnesb in the conduct of election campaigns all through the easl aud a corresponding decrease iu the moral tone
of the people in their estimate of the
sanctity of the franchise. The purity
of the ballot can never be maintained
while men can purchase their way Into
power for there will always he those
weal*: enough to sell their votes and on
the other hand those who have hut
small BOrUplQB in the mutter of purchasing their way inlo the seats of
the mighty.
Mr. Borden's plea for purity in elections und administration of public offices is not second in Importance to
his pronouncement in favor of the general ownership of public utilities by
the people themselves. In fact it may
be said that the one cannot be successfully initiated till we have the other.
Where cabinet ministers look upon the
public domain as so much material
with which io purobase the electorate
and maintain themselves in power,
there can be no successful administration of public affairs by the government in office. Mr. Borden shows
that he well undertands how these two
Lmust stand or fall together,
Moreover   it   is  a   serious   reflection
Fon the Libera! party, that during the
yenrs they have bean in power the
standards of election campaigns have
suffered  notorious   deterioration   and
while this has been the case during
their term there is little hope ihat
they have either the ability or the will
to take the drastic measures that are
necessary lo purify political lire.
On the other hand, oven his political
opponents have constantly admitted
that Mr. llorden's ideals of political
life are of a high order and it is not
too much to predict thut when the
e|lectorate of Camutu become seized
of the knowlerdge tbat the Conservative leader stands irrevocably committed to purity in political methods,
he will be the Muses who will lead
them out of their present wilderness
of indefensible corruption.
The other case of broad federal interest. Is the campaign now just closed
In the Essex Peninsula, in which
Hon. A. B, Aylsworth is taking part.
It is alleged thnt arguments nre being
freely  used  which,  in  effect,  toil   the
electors thai if tbey wish lhe construction of a certain line of railway they
must return the federal candidate.
While We are unprepared to believe
that a campaign so brazen Is being
conducted, we fear the effect of such
suggestions as are obviously being
made by the stump orators fn the case,
will lie so understood by the weaker
elements in the electorate and the
effect will be lhe same as an open
There is the greatest need for tho
adoption of some more transparently
honest method of conducting campaigns and winning elections than
those which huve come to be the rule
with the federal authorities.
The premier, who left on  Tuesdaj
morning to attend the sessions of the
provincial premiers, was accompanied
by Mr. It. B. Gosnell, late ediior ol ihe
Victoria Colonist. The suggestion was
recently made by one oi the opposition
papers that It would have been a
graceful thing for Mr. McBride to have
invited tlu* leader of the opposition
to assist in the presentation of the
claims of the province upon the fed-
oral leaders.
To have done so would have been
Indeed unique, not only in ihe conception of the plan but iu the results
that would have followed. What right
the leader of the opposition has to he
taken into secrets of cabinet ministers
does not readily appear, but so long as
Mr, McDonald does not disavow responsibility foi* the manner In which
the newspapers supporting him have
been conducting their campaigns he
sliould expect to receive so important
a recognition at the hands of tho
In any case, if as is reported Mr.
McDonald is to have the vacant judgeship we fancy he will not take the
same Interest in political affairs as his
presenl position has obliged him to do.
Xo objection would have been offered if the premier had chosen to take
Mr. McDonald with him to Ottawa at
the country's expense, but us soon as
tbe premier selects Mr. Gosnell, a
thoroughly Qualified student of the
country's relations to the federal
grants, he is immediately called down
for carrying wiih him a gentleman
who is to acl as his "prompter."
Thus are the opposition tactics il-
lust ruled. Anything but a square deal
may be anticipated from the organs
of tlie Liberal party within the province of Hritish Columbia.
Tin* Victoria despatch appearing in
yesterday's Canadian containing tlie
Substance ol a suggestion made by
Kan Grey, in respect to the manner
In Which the Immense areas of land
suitable for the production of fruit
In British Columbia, will have been
jvad wiih Interesi as well as hope.
The assurance���tor it really amounts
lo that���which was given hy Earl Grey
sufficient capital could easily be arranged for to exploit many of these
vast ureas und bring them into a condition of productivity, thereby providing homes and employment for thousands of England's unemployed, offers a
solution of one of the most serious
problems with which the investors
Within the province have had lo deal.
There need, therefore, be no flattery
or insincerity in paying tribute to the
originative genius of the governor
general. While he has on many occasions shown a remarkable degree of
astuteness, diplomacy und administrative tact, this will probably be one of
the crowning  recollections of his life,
if fhe suggestions he makes are car-
rled out.
The mere fact lhat one who stands
so highly iu the confidence of the people of both Canada and Great Itritatn
us does Lord Grey, wfll in Itself guarantee the sucess of the proposed
scheme. We may expect that Earl
Grey, having publicly made the suggestion, will ally himself with such a
proposal as he intimates can tie made
a success aitid the yeurs will tell lhe
lale, Immensely redounding to his
credit in this matter.

He was the founder of no fewer than

Blue Army Uniform to Stay.
Washington, D. C, Oct. 5.���The
army quartermasters who have to do
with the dress of tlie soldiers have
about decided to retain the blue shirt
as a part of the uniform of the army.
Ji will not be replaced entirely by the
olive drab, or khaki, garment, of which
there is some dislike, especially among
the troops in the western part of the
country, lt is found, too, that there
is a partiality for the blue shirt among
soldiers in tlie tropics; if is more comfortable than the khaki shirt, and does
nor show the dust and dirt us plainly.
There is much discussion in the military service regarding the use of
khaki, and it is coming to lie realized
that it is not in all respects a worthy
substitute for the blue, although it has
the effect of contributing the element'
of invisibility which is lacking in the
blue uniform.

From the late-Ht. advices Unlay it lo
learned that there Ih every probability
41I the Oranby smelter being able to
weather the storm   of   the   present
Strike and nut he forced to close down
as was expected. Superintendent A.
li. W. Hodges in using every endeavor
to Semite coke from markets nol affected by the strike, und it Is more
than likely that he will be successful
in securing enough coke at least to op*
envte tour or the eight available fur-
Duces. It la needless to say thut the
directorate of the Granby company
ure most anxious to keep the red tic-
thm works running even if they huve
to pay a higher figure for their coke,
for at tii** present price of 17 cents a
pound for copper there Is uu ample
margin tor a good profit even if the
cosl of treatment is considerably In-
ar_Utted. It ir- stated that the new
coke supply will be obtained from
Vancouver, and some from the state
of Washington, and possibly some
from  Colemun, Alta.
Word has reached here today that
last Friday the private dwelling of the

been broken into and his trunk forced
4i|m:ii and the contents ransacked and
a cash box also forced open and relieved of Its contents, amounting to a
few dollars. The robbers also took
with them an electric flashlight which
the old gentleman had heen In the habit of using. Not the slightest clue hns
been obtained as to the Identity of
tue burglars,      indignaihm   runs high
at Cascade, where the Rev. Mr. Fernie
is held ln very high esteem by all who
know him.
There Is considerable talk here of

view of preventing the city council
from completing the purchase of the

When George Reynold's house at
Fairvlew was built, six years ago,
close to one of the walls was a little
Cottonwood tree. This tree has had
a marvellous growth aud worked iis
way into une of the sidewalks, with the
result that the building in one place
has been displaced at least three inches. In order that the house would
not be shoved over on the street, Mr.
Reynolds has cut down the tree and
repaired  the break in the house.
The Sutton company played again
last night to an increasing house and
their specialties were much enjoyed-
Particular mention should be made of
the performance of Mr. HJmll Chevriei,
the trick solo violinist who is with the
company. While all the specialties
were worth noting it is rarely that
Nelson audiences have had an opportunity to see such finished trick performances on the violin. Tonight, "A
Husband for Sale" will be given, and
tomorrow afternoon there will be a
matinee, the piece selected being "A
Family Affair."
