Dr. Crapsey Condemned

Antiquated Methods Criticized, Right
or Wrong Still Open to
Tin- trial of Dr. s. A. Crapsey, a
anted clergyman of the Protestant Episcopal  church,    which    In  tho  United
itee is the same us lhe Church of
England in Canada, was held several
weeks ago, and upon which a verdict

religious und secular, all over thcfxm-

Tin- substance of the charges preferred agalnsl Dr. Crapsey was that ho

more serious objection mav be
taken to the whole antiquated meihod
of the heresy trial. Whether Dr. Crapsey was right or wroag is an unimportant matter compared with the altitude
of the church towards the men who fall
Into error. The one Instrument of tho
church for overcoming error Is truth,
and tho one spirit in which the church
can deal with men Is a Bplrlt of love."

Company Hes Nothing
But Liabilities
Shareholders' Annual Meeting Receives and and Files Report,
Adjourns Without Comment
The statutory annual general meeting of the Venus Mining Company was
held in the company's former office
Tuesday morning al 11 o'clock. The
shareholders present were R. Heildle,
W. W. Beer, Dr. B. C. Arthur, J. J.
Walker and F. W. Swannell. F. \V.
BwannelJ was elected secretary pro
tern., and read the brief statement from
the directors of Ihe company. All that
the latter vouchsafed was a statement
of assets and liabilities. The report
was received In silence. When It ended the shareholders present looked al
each other In bitter amusement, and
then quickly adopted two resolutions,
one to file lhe report, the other to adjourn. No directors were elected or reelected, no Information was asked for,
no recommendations offered, no comment made.
The affairs of the Venus are in a
rather tangled state, and the management evidently felt that "least, said Is
soonest  mended."
The company Is heavily In debt, has
no available funds, and is still involved
In llllgatlon with the Athabasca-Venus
merger company. The Venus directors
allege that an agreement for sale was
made, which the Athabasca-Venus managers deny. ^
Of the condition and prospects of the
Venus mine no one now in Nelson cures
to express an opinion. It is conceded
by those interested that no one is likely
to offer to explore the property nt the
cost of assuming lis liabilities. There
are about twelve stockholders at present, or lately, In Nelson, Including besides those present yesterday H. and M.
llird. J, F. Weir and E. C. Trnves.
The Impression accepted by those at
yesterday's meeting was that the career
of the mine as such Is over, and that
all chances of Its creditors receiving
payment depend on the result of litigation, not of mining.
Married Yesterday.
In St. Saviour's church, Nelson, on
Tuesday, the 6th of June, 1900, Edward
James Dutton, of Medicine Hat. was
married by the rector, new F. II. Graham, to Miss Lydia Reynolds Christie.
The bride Is a sister of Mrs. J. E. An-
nable and Mrs. J. A. Cryderman.

The bishop then rend his charge,
which was referred for consideration
anil report to a commllleo consisting of
Revs. B. P. Flewelllng nnd H. A. Steele
and Messrs. Venublos and Cock.
Archdeacon Beer and W. A. Jowett
were re-elected clerical anil lay secretaries respectively.
Archdeacon Doers' report referred to
the    destruction    of churches In San
Francisco and In Italy. Ho detailed
changes In the ministry by resignations
and removals. He expressed regret at.
tbe fact tbat seven parishes were still
vacant. The scarcity of ministers was
referred to as a serious problem, especially in view of the rapidly growing
population. He also had to report decreases in ninny other things, In com.
munlons, In baptized members and In
missionary collections. He advised tho
formation of a diocesan branch of the
Woman's Auxiliary. He referred with
satisfaction to the bishop's plan for a
theological college at New Westminster.
Archdeacon Beer also reported for
Ihe book committee, showing a balance,
and recommending lhat the books be
sold under direction of Rev. F. H. Graham.    The report was adopted.
On motion of E. A. Crease, tbe constitution, rules of order and canons of
the synod were adopted.
A. E. Phipps presented the treasurer's annual report, showing total receipts of $9,5-1:1.75, disbursements of
$5,203.01, the total balance being $4,-
280.14. The bishopric fund now amounts
lo $1,079.96.
Rev. H. A. Steele presented tho report of the committee on "The alienation of the worklngmaii." The following exlracts are taken from it:
j "The socialism prevailing in this district is the same as the communism of
Karl Marx, with this Important difference, that it Is evidently Christian in
sentiment and ethics.
"The reason of this Is perhaps to be
found in the fact that many were some
time members of some denomination,
and it is in this that the hope of rec-
oaciliatlon lies. >
"The socialistic workingman criticizes the church adversely because he
maintains that she has stultified herself
and failed to properly, expound Christianity by allowing herself to be dominated by a social system which he
claims to be la opposition to our Lord's
own teaching, and with which he is In
opposition. -��-
"The committee would warn the cler-
gy and the laily alike of the harm of
palronlzlng, or assuming an air of condescension, towards the proletariat, who
desire justice and not charity.
"They would nlso respectfully urge
the importance of n chair on sociology
in the proposed diocesan school, and
commend the serious attention of all
to the subject of co-operative commonwealth, If they would wisli to come
nearer to the woikingmuu, especially at
Ibis time, when so many nre making it
their chief study."
Mr. Phipps' resignation was accepted
with regret, and a vole of thanks was
Rev. F. H. Graham reported' for the
delegates to the general synod of the
Canadian hurch. He dwelt on the debute on the remarriage of divorced persons which wus raised by a memorial
from Kootenay diocese.
The next subject discussed was the
report on relations with workingmon.
It was spoken to by Revs. H. A. Steele,
J. Lambert, F. V. Venables, E. W.
Flewelllng, C. A. Procuuler and F. H.
Graham, With the exception of Rev.
Steele, all Ihe speakers opposed Ihe
adoption of the report, on the, ground
that It would commit the church to approval of socialism. J. T. Uiwrence, a
member of the committee, and a union
Workingman and socialist, also spoke,
und pleaded for lhe adoption of the report.
George Johnstone thought the real
cause of alienation was the demand for
social equality by the uneducated���a
demand that no canon or resolution, ho
.-aid, could gratify,

discussion deferred for u year.

000 feet a Day.
Among the new members of the
Mountain Lumbermen's Association
present at yesterday's meetings was
W. E. Cooke, of Harvey, North Dakota,
the purchaser of the Kaslo sawmill,
formerly operated by G. O. Buchanan.
Mr. Cooke has many timber inteiests
in the northwestern states, but, like
many other keen American capitalists,
be has been attracted to British Columbia by its unlimited forest wealth
and by the magnificent opportunities
presented by the development and
growth of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and
In the course of conversation with a
representative of The Daily Canadian
at the Hume last night, Mr. Cooke
spoke frankly of his plans.   He said:
"I intend to remodel and re-equip
the mill from end to end. When I am
through it will be practically a new
mill, with entire new machinery, boilers, engines, saws, carriages and everything.
"Yes, I intend to enlarge it, too. It
was designed at first for a capacity of
about 30,000 feet a day. I will double
that for an ordinary working day, and,
when I am ready for It, will operate
with two shifts. Increasing tbe cut to
120,000 feet a day.
"O, yes, the outlook Is magnificent.
The timber of Kootenay is splendid and
the market Is practically unlimited. No
one has any reason to hesitate about
investing any sum required for a plant
to develop the forest wealth of this
Mr. Cooke is a deal American man
of business, quick ... think and decide,
plain of speech and frank, and with a
spirit of enterprise; and business courage that accepts present good without
looking for possible future ills. His
advent will undoubtedly prove a boon
to Kaslo, and he will prove a valuable
member of the Mountain Lumbermen's
His timber limits In Kootenay are on
streams flowing Into Kootenay lake
from the west and northwest. In Kaslo
district and in the Lardeau. The operation of his mill will give employment to a couple of hundred men when
it Is In full operation as intended. While
not all of them will be resident in Kaslo, the old lake town is certain to ben-
fit very largely.
Manager T. H.   Trethewey   Describes
New Concentrator snd Speaks
of General Outlook.
Tho concentrator at the La Plata
mines la now In operation, and though
designed for only 75 tons u day, It can
treat 80. The plant Includes, as explained by T. H. Trethewey, Jiggs of five
compartments, Overstrain tables, six
Hue vanners, a Blake rock breaker, two
sets of 36x14 8lar rolls and a flve-
siamp battery.
Asked how be proposed to separate
the lead and zinc, Mr. Trethewey said:
"By water concentration. The lead Is
heavier. It will fall Into the first and
second compartments, lead middlings
Into the third, cine into the fourth nnd
zinc middlings into the fifth."
To the question, "Isn't the five-stamp
battery an Innovation?" he said: "Yes.
II Is to crush the finer ores, the lead
und zinc middlings, to grind them again
nnd facilitate separation.
"The mill is u good one," he continued, "and every credit Is due to
Charles Culvor, who designed and Installed It. The machinery was supplied
by the Jenckes company.
"Iy will be a month before the mill
Is perfectly adjusted.   Till then    we
shall treat only tbe low-grade concentrating ores. Shipping ore will be sent
to the smelter.
"How much ore now In sight? Enough
to supply tbe mill for three years at SO
tons a day.
"Our arrangements? "They're simple. The mill hi 8.500 feet distant from
the mine and 2,400 feet lower. It will
take three men to run the aerial tram,
two for the mill, and I want 45 in the
"We have a good mine, lots of ore
and a good mill. All we want now is a
good road. It Is ten miles from the
mill to the landing. I want to ship a
half car, that is, ten tons, a day. Two
teams should be able to haul that. At
present It takes three. I expect that
the government will put the road in

Roscian  Opera  Company   Better.than
Ever and Duly Appreciated by
a Crowded House.
Sherman's opera house was crowded
to its fullest capacity last night at tbe
presentation of "Martha" by the Roscian Opera Company. When the play
was over there was only one opinion
expressed by tbe pleased audience that
when W. Cranston promises Nelson a
good play by a good company he may
be trusted to make good.
Most of the numbers of the company
are well known In Nelson, and fully
sustained the reputations they have
made In former appearances. The
songs of Lucia Nola and F. W. Walters
were a treat, and were fully appreciated. The acting was fully up to the
standard of the Roscians, and the
choruses went with a spirit and dash
that were refreshing. Though the stage
was never crowded, the volume of the
chorus wan excellent, and many favorable comments were made on the
splendid management of voices that
produced sol striking an effect.
But while old favorites were welcomed and heartily applauded, the
chief interest of the audience wns centered In Wlnlfrid Crowley, the young
prima donna who has so recently made
her debut in opera. All who have
heard Miss Crowley sing know the power and sweetness of her voice and the
perfection ot its control. But few
even of ber most enthusiastic admirers expected to see the young actress
so perfectly at home on the stage, and
displaying dramatic ability of so high
a quality. It Is not only In exquisitely
sympathetic rendering of her songs
that Miss Crowley shows her genius.
Every gesture, every look and pose
show a thorough appreciation of all
the dramatic possibilities. Throughout, in addition to faultless singing nnd
acting, there was an Indescribable
chnrm about Miss Crowley's appearance. She was fully earning the enthusiastic applause which greeted her
evory entrance, und could not but be
conscious of Ihe fact. Bui her silent
appeal lo Ihe audience wus the saunas on her first appearance iu Nelson
on the concert stage.
Miss Crowley will be warmly welcomed In Nelson us often an this city
is favored by her, and nowhere will
news of the successes that certainly
await ber be more gladly received.
Of the Betting of the play and, the
general management of the production,
It is only necessary to any that even
Mr. Cranston never made stage arrangements so perfectly before in Nelson. Tho entr'actes were very brief,
and the transitions from scene to scene
wero excellently  managed.
The house Is sure Io be crowded
again tonight, when ">��� company presents the old favorite melodrama, "Fro
Church Struck by Lightning.
Newburg, June fl.���Trinity Methodist
church, one of the finest churches In
the New York Conference, was badly
damaged by fire last night. In a heavy
thunder storm lightning struck the
spire, which rose to a height of 180
feet. In a few minutes the steeple was
a mass ot flames and Anally It fell. The
tower was burned out but the body of
the church was saved.
Stormy Session of
Lower House
Ministers Practically Driven From
the Rostrum���Must Dismiss
Cabinet or Fight.
St. Petersburg, June 6.���The lower
house of parliament and the government are rapidly coming to close quarters, and the conflict which became evident the moment the assembly presented its demands in the address to
the throne cannot be much longer delayed. The excitement In the Interior
Is increasing daily. Strikes have begun at Kieff, Odessa, Moscow and other cities, and tbe peasants in soma
provinces are no longer restralnable,
and have commenced to seize the land
of the proprietors. Since the government declined to give the house satisfaction regarding the continued executions in the provinces, or to bring to
book the local officials whose tyranny
is fanning the flames of popular indignation, parliament has had no alternative except the immediate insistence on
its demand for the dismissal of the cabinet. The scene at yesterday's session
when the house refused to listen to tho
ministers and practically drove them
from the rostrum, clearly presents the
issue. The emperor must dismiss the
cabinet or fight. In yielding to the
militant spirit of the radicals upon this
point, the constitutional democrats
again solidified the opposition, which
was on the verge ot dissensions over
the agrarian question. Tbe spirit ot
conflict which prevailed at yesterday's
session continued, at the siTiing~ioday,
although some of the leaders of the
constitutional democrats went Into the
breach to stay too hasty; action.
M. Vinaver's project, of which he
gave notice yesterday, to change the
regulations of the house so aB to eliminate all control of the ministers, either
in the drafting or manipulation of bills,
was introduced today. Messrs. Anna-
tian and Alladit, tho peasant and party
leaders, used the occasion to make violent speeches, in which they argued
that it was useless tor parliament to
proceed in the regular way. The government Intended to rely on bullets and
bayonets, and It was parliament's duty
to recognize a banner under which the
people would fight when the Inevitable
collision comes.
The debate of the agrarian question
was then resumed. The ministerial
benches- were empty today. A prominent leader of the legislation and democrats informed the correspondent of
the Associated Press that members of
his party wero confident the government would H3t dare to resort to extreme measures, as they must know only too well that the dissolution of parliament would set tbe country in flames.

a nation when lis people become seized

the political history of Russia lias been

be said thai Russia had no political history, as the barbarous relations existing between rulers and ruled have
been unspeakably more harsh 'ban in

civilization. For centuries the proleta

the later years have been comparatively free from anarchistic outbreaks, and
thai there no longer exists the active
propagation of that species in the land
of the Muscovite. The men, and sometimes women, who were banded together in ibis horrible work, were fully
uwurc thai they carried their lives with
a breath, nnd thai they were equally at
tbe mercy of their associates and their
enemies. What they did they were
prepared to suffer, and, it ii ho transpired, to die for; but as a class or or
ganization, they are now discredited
even in Russia, and their deeds when
perpetrated are usually tbe crimes of
the vicious ami abandoned, just as they
are  of  thai  class  in other countries.
The schools, the radical press and the
general advance iu the intelligence of
tbe middle classes must be credited
the milder measures from which the
masses are said to expect redress. It is
not improbable that the socialistic
teachings which have been so persist'
ently and successfully advocated In
Germany and other European countries have had much to do with the
change In popular sentiment. It
Is not surprising that to people, no matter how exasperated and
made vicious by the cruelties of their
oppressors, the tenets of socialism,
while promising all tbat the nihilists
hoped for or desired, should appeal lo
the latent humatiitariauism of society.
So that the secret societies which once
were a menace to the safety of society
have been changed into schools for the
Bpreadlng of socialism, with secret
emissaries who have woven a network
of chains around the empire until it is
Inextricably bound in the toils.
The demands which were made yesterday in the lower bouse, while extreme and impossible of realization, will
he held out for firmly, The only prospect of amicable adjustment lies in the
hope thai the discussion of these demands may serve to bring the conflicting parlies lo a better understanding
of each other's rights, and that counsels of moderation, patience and conciliation may prevail.
The visit of Premier McBride and
Chief Commissioner of Lauds and
Works, Hon. R. F Green, on official
business in connection with the departments of tbe government which
they recpectively administer will be received with cordiality and appreciation
iu every part of tbe interior they may
find time lo inspect. Hitherto tlte
tangle in which they found everything
in these departinenis when they took
office and the necessity of reducing tin-1
work of their departments to something
like tinier, together with the fresh
tasks which each day has imposed has
prevented thorn from more frequenl
personal Investigation of the claims of
tlie districts which Me so far away from
the capital. Now thai their work Is
running with something approaching
order and smoothness they are availing
themselves of an opportunity to make
persona] observation of the needs of the
constituencies, which until the advent
of the present govornmenl were left to
go at pretty much their own. gait, in
ihe management of mining matters in a
comparatively new country Buch as
ibis, where, notwithstanding the success of many mineral operations, development may lie said to have only well
begun and with apparently untold resources yet. to bo exploited, the office of
Minister of Mines affords no sinecure to
its occupant The Just and equitable
operation of the mining laws, their a-
mcndmonl when necessary, the incidence of taxation and a score of other
considerations make a demand for the
most strenuous application of executive
ability. In man*' Instances representations made to the department can he
best understood only when the minister
In charge has made n personal examination into the cases and deciding thereupon tbe course of action for which he
will    be   held    responsible to his col
leagues in office and io the country
at large. Tbat mining matters in British Columbia are running with so little
friction, and on tbe whole the industry
is in a prosperous condition throughout
the province, speaks well for the manner in which the duties of tbe premier
as minister of mines are discharged.
The once vexed question of taxation on
these industries has been happily adjusted, and, with tbe bead of the executive ia close touch with these Indus
tries us a result of his extended tour,
ihe whole countl'J will he advantaged
bj the trip.
In the department of lands and works
the surveys being made, the multiplying applications for land rights and
limber privileges, the opening id' roads
and means of transportation, travel and
communication necessitated by lhe
comparatively rapid settlement ot tin
interior, make the visii of the chief
commssloner exceedingly opportune,
and ihe close relation existing between
the development of mineral properties
and Ihe opening of roads affords a
pleasing reflection upon llie fact that
the premier and  chief    commissioner

The Opposition press, however, with
iis usual proneness to sensation, see in
ibis tour no more than a campaign
jaunt at the country's expense. Ever
since the present government assumed
lhe reins of power the Opposition press
has been cudgelling the ministers for
alleged indifference to the welfare of
these outlying districts and clamoring
loudly for them to forsake their posts
at Victoria ami acquaint themselves
with the province whose affairs they
conduct. Now that they have been able
to take the time to do so, the tongue of
scandal is let loose and columns of insinuation and Inuendo abound.
Tbat these will have any effect upon
cither the ministers or the people Is too
absurd for belief, aud the affairs of ute
province will continue to enjoy the
same careful administration as before.
The Vancouver World has recently
suffered another eclipse of its sanity,
and broken out with a rash thai reveals
Ihe venomous condition of its political
humour. During and since the last session of the provincial legislature it baa
repeatedly used the expression, which
hps now become a political classic with
the opposition papers, "Adventurers,
mule and female." I'ntil lately it has
nol been sufficiently explicit in its references to the department of lands and
works to require more than a touch
with the flat of the sword. Exasperated
beyond all forbearance hy its failure
to catch the smile of tbe gallery, it
launched forth last week and deliberately charged that SOmej one had bad
access lo Ihe secret and confidential
records of that department. Willi undisguised malevolence it suggests lhal
the administration of that department
is corrupt and unworthy of public confidence.
The Colonist, pricked out of its usual
complacency, unslieaihed its rapier and
challenged tho World to make good its
libellous assertions or amply, honorably
and fully retract them. That i. cannot
make good is understood by no one better than by the World Itself; that it
will honorably rotract, nobody but an
idiot would expect. Tbe World, ever
since its inception, has had a weakness
for the "yellows," and Its jaundiced
face has of late been giving Increasing
evidence of the progress of the disease.
Still, it is too bad that a respected minister of the crown should have his
name larnished by baseless Insinuations. It might be wise to give the
World Ihe chance for notoriety it so
much  craves.
A farmer in the delta of the Kraser
river Iiuh Imported a plow tbe motor
power of which Is gasoline, somewhat
on the same principle as the engine of
an automobile. The results of tbe trial
of the machine so far nre said to have
been very satisfactory. The smooth,
level, mellow soil of the delta yields
readily to the mould boards of tbe new
Implement with even furrows. When
lhe varied and extensive applications
of gasoline motor force are considered,
and the many new forms In which tbat
latent force Is used. It is not beyond
the pale of possibility that lhal fluid
ma> some day displace electricity
where the expense of generating Ihe
latter power is of more than average
cost. Denaturalized alcohol, too, is
proving to lie a good Substitute for and
much cheaper than even gasoline, so
that fnn field for new inventions to
control nnil apply Ibese forces may afford profitable Investment of time nnd

The te1 harmonium has arrived. It is
an invention for producing music by
electricity without sitings, reeds or

reproduced, at each telephone. You
don't have to put the receiver to your
ear to hear It. You let the waves Into
a paper cone, and the sound that rolls
out will (111 a great auditorium. The
inventor says the music can be produced a thousand miles from the place
where the performer Is depressing tho

Attention was called today to tbe ed

long time resident of Nelson. He Btotes
lhal they were both originally tho prop-
orty of the South Kootenaj board' of
tiade, the llrst of such boards to be
founded in the Kooleuays, There was
in those days a strong rivalry betwei 0
Kaslo aud Nelson, and ouce a contln
genl arrived from Kaslo with the object of securing a transfer of the board
of trade to /that city. Tbe office of the
board was then iu the Victoria block,
aud the N'efsonites, learning of the purpose of the Kaslonlans, packed the
house and outvoted them. The Vlctoris
block was at that time owned by George
Bigelow, and as the meetings languished and rents ran into arrears, he seized
possession of the office furniture. Being associated wiih John Houston in
some business matters, in a final adjustment of their affairs the desk and
chair came into Houston's possession.
White The Daily Canadian is now the
owner of these ancient relics, they are
about the only antiquities thai are
kept aboul the office.
