Gates' One-Tlme Partner Sought to Recover 1150,000, but Failed.
San Francisco, May :il.���The Grubstake, one of the most honored of California Institutions, hus apparently ut-
terly done away with by a circuit court
decision. Ever since 1849 the system
of grubstaking hy prospectors for the
privilege of sharing In whatever he
finds had been In vogue, and more than
one great fortune on this coast has
come to homestaycrs who have outfitted
mlnehuniers. In fact, the validity of
such contracts had never before beon
questioned In this state.
.Now Swiftwater Hill, who, on a $1000
grubstake found a fortune of 1750,000,
Iiub won a verdict declaring that the
grubstukcr cannot collect.

HaaneK's Report on Latest
Thermo-EIectric Treatment of Canada's Ores Will Sare Many
Values Now Wasted.
Dr. Haanel, Dominion superintendent
of milieu, In his excellent report upon
the experiment made last year in smelt,
Ing of Canadian oreB by the thermoelectric process at Sault Ste. Marie,
gives the following summary of results:
lal���Canadian ores, chlelly magnetites, can be economically Bmelted as
hematites by Uio electrothermlc process.
2nd���Ores of high sulphur content
can be made into pig iron containing
only a few thousandths of n per cent, of
3rd.���The slli'-on content can be varied as required fur the class of pig to be
4th���Charcoal, which can be cheaply
produced from mill refuse or wood
which could not be otherwise utilized,
and peat coke, can be substituted for
coke without being brlquetted with the
5th���A ferro-nlckel pig can be pro-
dticed practically freo from sulphur and
of line quality from rousted nlckell-
ferous pyrrhotlte.
6th���Tilaniferous iron ores containing
up tu five per cent cau be successfully
treated by the electro-thermic process.
Dr. Haanel in his general remarks
saya: "The far-reaching consequence
of the gratifying results achieved by
these experiments will be at once apparent. Many of our magnetites are
too high In sulphur lis he handled by
the blast furnace and consequently have
so far been of no commercial value,
Uut the very best of pig Iron, as have
been proven, can be made from ores
which contain aa high as 1.5 per cent.
of sulphur. A blast furnace will not
usually handle an ore which contains
more than U.l per cent of sulphur, and
requires, therefore, an ore which cannot
be obtained at a low figure.
"Regarding the water power required
for the application of this process it
may be Btated that many powers exlBt
In Ontario and Quebec surrounded by
Iron ore fields, in localities 111 adapted
fof the application of electric energy
for any other purpose, which could be
developed to furnish an electric horse
power yearly for from $4.50 to $6. With
such a price for the energy required,
the small consumption of electrode, the
cheapness of the ore employed, nnd the
peculiar excellence of the iron produced, electric smelting of iron ores in
Canada In properly constructed furnaces, using charcoal or peat coke,
made from our enormous pent bogs of
enormous extent, may bo pronounced
commercially feasible. Under the prevailing conditions in Canada It now only
remains for Ihe engineer to design a
plant on a commercial scale, say of 100
to 160 tons output, with all the necessary labor-Baving appliances. JttBt as in
the case of the blast furnace bo likewise
with the electric furnace, experience
gained will result ln further economy
and the duy may not be far distant,
when the carbon monoxide, which Is
of high calorific value, and what at present as a product of the renction taking
place In the electric furnace Is allowed
to escape without utilization will be em
ployed for Increasing tho output by
something like one-fourth. When this
ls accomplished, the blast ftirnnce could
nol compete with the electric furnuce.
even under conditions in which coke
might be cheaper thnn nl presenl quoted
ln Ontario and Quebec.
"With the present ndvance which has
boen mude ln the transmission of electric energy, batteries of electric fur
nacOB could be set up at various iron
ore deposits, whlchAioiild he fed with
electric energy from some centrally lo
cated water-power, thus affecting a saving of Iho transportation oosts of the
ore from the mine lo thc furnace."
It Is eallmutod that a 10,000-hors-S-
power plunt, capable of producing 126
tons of pig Iron per dny, of 24 houns,
would cost. $700,000. This, with Interesi, depreciation, etc., allowed for,
would niako tho expense of production
$2.43 por ton for 43,200 tons. Adding
to this the cost of ore, charcoal, labor,
electric energy, general expenses, etc.,
the eslimale It made that a ton of pig
iron can be produced for $10.69.
The olectrlc smelting plant at present
under construction at Welland, Ont., ls
expected to produce 35 to 40 Ions of pig
Iron per dny. A second furnace Is to
bo built, the produce of which will ho
used In a new-process steel furnace for
tho manufacture of hlghgrado steel

Misleading Statement Attributed to V.
W. Odium by Vancouver
The Vancouver province of Wednes
nesdny, May 39th, contains the following remarkable Btory:
"The water In the rivers of Kootenay ls
rising steadily, and people In that district fear that the Hood conditions of
1894 will be repeated again this year,"
declared Mr. V. W. Odium, editor of the
Xelson Daily NewB, wbo arrived here
this morning on a business trip which
will keep him on the Coast for four or
five days.
"When I left, tho water ln the Kooteuny river had rlBen to n point only six
feet below high-water mark of the year
of the big floods, und lt Is believed that
Ihere ls sufficient snow in the hills to
keep the river rising for another month.
Everything polnta to dangerous conditions."
Presumably Mr. Odium has boen misquoted.
For tbe benefit of strangers who
might bo misled, it may bo Btated that
the water Ib not within 20 feet of the
level of 1894, that the level has been utmost unchanged for the lasl four dnys,
and thut, those with longest experience
are convinced that there Is not the
slightest danger of high water this year.

||"" ..ice Commission of
No Value
Chief Beneficiary is G. F. Shepley,
K" C���Here Political Trick
���No Good Results.
Ottawa, May 31.���It is now recognized that whatever value the report of
the Royal Insurance Commission may
have as political literature, lt Is of no
great service lu the matter of insurance. The one thing that the organization as a whole seems to have taken
seriously was a political inquiry. All
the rest Is a tumultuous jumble, and
the report itself now appears to be
an object of ridicule to every person
who has knowledge of insurance. The
government has taken no action on the
report, and has paid uo attention to
the draft bill submitted by the commissioners.
But the Inquiry was an excellent en-
gagement for those employed ln lt.
Parliament has voted already $105,000
to pay the bills. Probably there will be
other votes next year. There was a
vote of $2ii,0Dt), then one of $10,000,
then one of $75,000. The way some of
this money went has been explained.
Other explanations will perhaps be
made next year.
Mr. Shepley, counsel for the government, wub paid $100 a day aud moving
expenses during tbe time he was employed. He also received a counsel fee
which was not fixed until after be had
finished his job. His pay went on after
he bad finished examining the witnesses
and all the time the commissioners
were supposed to be preparing the report. As Mr. Shepley is believed to
have written the report, thus acting as
prosecuting counsel, judge and jury, he
probably earned his money during tbe
period of the hearing as well as before.
Down to April 10th Mr. 8hepley had
received $8,000. It may he remarked
here that his firm drew $8,266 ln the
previous year In connection with other
government business. This Included a
round sum of $7,500 for professional
services ln connection with the Grand
Trunk Paclflc contract. Also It maybe said that this professional child of
fortune is now acting as counsel for
the government In the Bell Telephone
inquiry. There is a minister of justice,
a solicitor-general, a deputy minister of
justice, and two or three legal advisers
to the department of railways, but they
cannot get along without Mr. Shepley,
even though he comes high.
Mr. Tllley was Mr. Shepley's assistant. He got $50 a day and expenses.
and had drawn $4,000 when last heard
Mr. Dawson, principal actuary, was allowed $50 a day and expenses, and had
two assistants at $20 a day and expenses. Altogether these actuaries received $7,743.80
Then we have the commissioners
themselves. They were nllowed $30
per day ln addition to their moving ex
penses. This pay seems to have gone
on continuously. Payments on account
down to April last were $2,500 to Commissioner MacTnvlsh, $3,000 to Commissioner Langmulr, and $2,000 to Commissioner Kent: Chairman MacTnvlsh
ls a county court judge and hae been a
commissioner before. Sir Wilfrid Laurler appointed Judge MacTavlsh to Inquire Into tho Brockville und West
Huron election steals nud other frauds
of a like character. Tliess- matters had
been under discussion ln the privileges
committee and discoveries were made,
lt became necessary to choke off the
Inquiry and bo Sir Wilfrid used his inn
Jorlty In the House lo refer the charges
to n commission, it need only be said
that the Inquiry was never held.
Judge MacTavlsh was also appointed
by the Ross government as commissioner to Investigate the West Elgin
election steal. He held nn alleged Inquiry nud reported that while there
were some Irregularities, nothing hnd
been done "by which llle Integrity of
the poll wns violated, or the will of the
electorate subverted." He refused to
believe men who Bwore that they themselves had switched ballots. He did
not hear the evidence of scores of Conservative ready to swear that their
votes had not been counted. After his
report making light of the whole affair,
the Ross government candidate wub
brought to bay ln the courts. He then
confessed thut fraudulent nnd corrupt
means hnd been used tn secure the election, Hint strangers hnd been brought
lo hold pollB under assumed nnmes. Hint
the votes were falsely counted, thut the
bullets were manipulated, that agents
of the government cnndldnto hnd concealed lu their homes lho strangers who
noted us deputies and who corrupted
the electors. But Commissioner MacTavlsh discovered none of these things.
Such Is Mr. MacTavlsh's record as a
commissioner In election  inquiries.
The other two election commissioners do not appear to have exercised
much influence. It has come about that
the Insurance commission report Is absolutely valueless for the purpose Intended and so far as can now be seen
for any other purpose. Even the political scheme has failed. The two Immediate results are the expenditure of a
large sunt of money and the origination
of the "wine, women and graft" episode, resulting In the precipitous retirement of Mr. Emmerson from office and
pei-lmps in delaying the return of Mr.
Hymnn to his native land.

National   Seamen's  Union   Haa  Called
Out Every Sailor, Including
Naval Reaervee.
Paris, May 31.���French commerce Is
threatened with complete paralysis as
a result of the general strike of sailors
belonging to the naval reserve which
went Into operation at daylight today
at all the ports of France. The naval reserves comprise almost all the maritime
population devoted to seafaring life.
Tbey number about 117,000 men of
which 2,500 belong to the war fleet. The
executive committee of the National
Seamen's Union ordered the strike because the members of the union regard
the government's new bill Increasing
pensions from $40.80 to $52.60 in the
case of seaman, and from $156 to $200
ln the case of captains, as being Inadequate.
The reports thus far received Indicate
that the tie-up Is complete. At the
Mediterranean, Atlantic and Channel
ports, the men generally left their ships.
The government promptly ordered the
army transports at Marseilles to be
placed in commission in order to insure
a mall service between France and
South African ports, but the transportation companies were taken by surprsle
and are at the mercy of the strikers.
The officials of the French Trans- Atlantic company hope that the Bteamer
La Provence will be able to sail from
Havre tomorrow. Legally, the companies are in a position to coerce the
men. Being members of the naval reserve the crews are subject to a heavy
jk unity for Insubordination, but it ls
regarded as more likely that they will
try to effect a compromise.
Urgent orders have been forwarded to
Toulon to prepare the transports Nlve,
Vlnhlong, Mlcho and Shamrock for sea
duty In cnse the strike of seamen Bhould
niuke tbelr services necessary. The torpedo boat destroyers at Marseilles are
being held with steam up In order to
carry tho mulls should this become necessary. The seamen at Havre have decided to strike today, and that town is
being placarded with notices to attend
the seamen's meeting. In accordance
with Ihe notification recoived from the
defence commitlee of the National Seamen's Union, the seamen at Dunkirk
nre preparing to go on strike,

Grand Forks Girl Killed
by Ber Sister
Emma Daman, Former Pupil of Helton High School Dead Fran
Blow From Small Stick.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Grand Forks, May 31.���Coroner Kingston's Inquest on the remains of the
late Miss Emma Donnan, who died suddenly yesterday morning after being
struck by a small stick thrown by her
elder sister, Bella, the result of a dispute between the two sisters, returned
a verdict at a late hour last night, the
purport of which Ib that the late Mlsa
Elmma Donnan came to her death by
being struck by a stick thrown by her
sister, Bella, but not with intent to kill.
Great satisfaction ls felt here at the
result of the coroner's Investigation and
much sympathy ie felt for the grief-
stricken family.
Miss Emma Donnan ��� was for two
years a pupil ot Nelson high school. She
and a younger sister, Ida, came to Nelson in September, 1901. Miss Donnan
lived here, at different times, with the

Mr. Dover was engaged ln the jewelry-

Since his retirement he haa amused
himself by selling cigars and pianos.
His declining years will be spent superintending a loan offlce in the metropolis

Mr. Dover will long be remembered
In Nelson where his many talents have

Perhaps his chief claims to enduring
fame are based upon his celebrated
'stated case,' "Suppose the dealer

"splits" and the glories of "a unity."

any news since the inquiries made during the night refilled the story that the

be expected. He has promised to make

Decoration of Graves of America's Dead
Washington. May Ml.���With solemnit>
and promptitude ceremonial day was observed in the national capital on a mon
elaborate scale than usual. Business
was suspended throughout the city. People of all classes united in perpetuating
the memory of the thousands of her
dead in the eight national cemeteries
here. At Arlington the principal exercises occurred. The 16,000 graves in
the cemetery were strewn with flowers
and each grave maiked by tiny American flags. A touching feature was the
decoration of graves in the part of the
cemetery where lie Uie Confederate
dead. The tomb of the "unknown
dead" was decorated by a special committee and the marine band rendered a
dirge, the same programme being followed in the section allotted to the
Spanish War dead and a wreath placed
on the anchor of the battleship Maine.
Later, in the ampitheatre, with n large
crowd present, the impressive service
for the soldier dead was conducted,
after which the unveiling of the monument to the memory of Major-General
Joseph A. Mower by the Society of the
Tennessee took place under the auspices of that society.

French    Authoritlea     Dlacuaa    Recent
Boaat of German Officero���
Can't See  lit
la a German invasion of Kngland possible? This Ib the question that some
of the French newspapers are discussing. The discussion was started by the
recent publication in Germany over the
Blgnaiure of officers of rank and credit
thai ;iC hours after tho Kaiser expressed
hla desire to settle with England Loudon would fall into the hands of an imperial army.
The affirmative Ib based on the assumption that Germany would not wait
for the declaration of wur, but would
take Kngland by surprise, making a
dash al some unguarded spot on the
English coast somewhat as Admiral
Togo began his operations ut Perth Arthur. The dafth would be made from
Wilhelmshafen or the mouth of the
Elms. A few hours sail at a time Judiciously chosen would suffice to land
an army before the BrltUh ships could
rally to stop it.

Admiral Aube and an expert writer on
strategic questions, is one of those who,
in the abstract, consider an invasion
of England possible. The defective English army system, he thinkB, subjects
the country to constant danger of Invasion. There is nothing, he believes, to
prevent the landing of hostile troops at
several points on the English coast simultaneously.
But M. Fontln thinks tbat at present
France is the only power that could
carry out this enterprise with any prospect of success. Germany is for the
present totally debarred from undertaking it alone by the "absolute and Irremediable Impotency' of her fleet. She
has gone altogether on a wrong tack,
he thinks, in building battleships and
cruisers, in which she cannot hope to
rival  England in years, lf ever.
"If, however, Gprmany had 100 submarines," he Bays, "and Bhe could secure them at the cost of two battle
shipB, England would be on the verge
of Vuin. T^ie submarine will make
the blockade of the future effective, and
England cunnot poBslhly stand a three
months' blockade."
M. Lauheuf, engineer-ln-chlef of the
French navy, who is credited with the
creation of the efficient submarine ser
vice of France, ��aid in answer to a
"If you had asked me five years ago
whether England could be successfully
invaded by Germany I would have said
'Yes.' But now that Engand has submarines I do not hesitate to declare
that it is Impossible. German threats
are absolutely vain. England is well
guarded today."
Edouard l^ockroy, who was formerly
minister of marine, considers the German'proposition a wild dream.
"Invade England!" said be. "Easy to
say, but hard to do. The German navy
is ceiiainly not of the build to do it.
As for surprise, lhe distance between
German ports and the English coast Is
too great to make such a thing possible.
Long before the invading ship could
arrive the Channel fleet would he after
"The invasion of England, lt will be
admitted, could not be undertaken with
less than 100,000 men. It would take
150 ships to transport them, along with
the munitions of war. Where would
Germany get the ships���of a sudden, to
take England by surprise?
"And what would 100,000 men be doing on English soil without a regular
system of supplies? Modern war is a
war of provisions. The surprise over,
the English fleet could certainly cut off
all aid from the Continent.
"The army of invasion would be an
army of prisoners. As for the rising of
150.000 German waiters In London to
assist their compatriots���well, If Germany counts on the mobilization of the
cafe help to conquer England she is
certainly trading ln chimeras."
Admiral Bienalme adds just a word to
the controversy.
**To Invade England," said he, "the
invader should be sure of the command
of the sea. I don't see how, in view
of the present naval strength of England, Germany could figure on such
command, even in a fog."
She Thinke Men Do Not ae Quickly Appreciate New end Better Ideas.
Women are not as conservative as
men. They are more quickly ready to
thrown away a worn-out custom or
creed in favor of something better.
A lady recently remarked that If she
and other ladies could buy their costumes as men can buy semi-ready tailored business or dress buUb it would
only take about two weeks for all the
world to know it. "We are more patient than the men," she said, "but we
don't like the fussing and waiting for a
new dress. I wish we could get a
"Semi-ready" dressmaking shop so that
we could get the same selection men

Found Dead.
Michael O'Brien, a well-known old-
timer of Victoria, was found dead in
his fiabirj early [his week. A coroner's
jury returned ft vprdict to the effect
that O'Brien died from natural causes.
Richard Jeffries, who for years had
been an intimate friend of O'Brien, was
the principal witness, ond as he told
what he knew of the circumstances of
the death he was visibly affected with
grief and apparently suffering from the
shock which the event caused him. He
was with the deceased Sunday afternoon, and knew from the way he acted
that he was going to die. He was in
bed and asked to be lifted up. Jeffries
assisted him to a sitting posture, but
he was so weak he could not retain it.
He took on a ghastly look, which to Mr.
Jeffries' mind indicated the near approach of death, and, as he explained to
the coroner, he could not stand seeing
any one die. so he bolted from the
place, lending tbe suffering man to die
