MRS. BRESCI
EXPLAINS
Anarchy  Not  Practical   and   Too
Good for This World—Bresci's
Last Days.
New York, May 23.—Speaking
of her husband's act in killing the
King of Italy, Mrs. Bresci said :
"He did not plan it with others.
Now that ' he is gone there is no
reason to conceal anything, and I
can say absolutely tbat there never
was a plot. It was said my husband was a leader and the agent of
a baud of anarchists in killing the
king. This is not true. His act
was entirely an individual act. He
conceived it himself. The Paterson anarchists wore as surprised he
did it as I was."
"Anarchy, from thelittle I have
reau of it, is a propangade that is
too good for this world. It is not
practical. that is the trouble
with it, and that was the trouble
with my husband."
Ou tbe wall of Bresci's cell the
word "vengeance" was scratched
with his bloody thumb nail. Bresci's violence last week culminated
in his attacking a jailor, in consequence of which he was placed in
a straight jacket. Later the prisoner feigned docility' iu order to secure au opportunity to commit
suicide, which he accomplished by
honging himself with an improv-
ished rope attached to the ceiling.
Iu the earlier days of his imprisonment Bresci resented orders to keep
silent and threatened to kill himself.

A LOVE FEAST. '
Readers of the morning paper
must have rubbed their eyes in bewilderment when they perused the
leading editorial iu yesterday's
issue. The World man, upon
glancing over the article iu question, abandoned his breakfast and
hastily proceeded to the head office
of the Le Roi company to make
kind inquiries after Mr. Bernard
Macdonald's health, because newspapers as a rule do not speak of
anyone as the Miner did, without
special cause, 'unless he is either
dead or in a very bad way. We
were relieved to learn that the general manager was no worse than
was to be expected under the circumstances. He offered no explicit explanation concerning the
editorial in question and in fact declined to speak for publication, but
the writer has a distinct recollection that at the conclusion of the
interview he was thankful he was
not the author of the article, which
will explain Mr. Macdonald's keen
relish of the matter.        ,
Everyday people will talk of
such things, and the number of
queries which reached this office
yesterday and today concerning
the real, true meaning of the article, is simply amazing. A few of
them were put like this:
Does the Miner own the Le Roi
—and the manager? or does the
manager own the Miner? What
was paid—in cash or otherwise—
for the "leader"? or did the mana
ger refuse to pay so much per line
for keeping it out? (We acquit the
Miner on these two charges.) Was
the article "inspired"? aud if so,
why? ? Is it true that the Miner is
now an out and out manager's
paper? Does it really and truly
love the uuions as it did? aud if
not, why not? What next? Won't
the Miner please tell us just how it
all happened?
[Since the above was written Mr
Macdonald and the editor have
again spoken. We extend to both
our sincere sympathy.]
THE ORE  SHIPMENTS.
In another column in this issue
we give the corrected ore shipments tor the week's endiug May
u and ifc respectively, aud a summary of the three record weeks in
the history of Rossland camp in
corrected figures. We also republish the estimates appearing in the
Rossland Miner's Sunday mining
review for the three successive
weeks in question. The Would
has already mentioned the difficulty met with in making up the
weekly estimate of the Le Roi, Le
Hoi No. 2 and Rossland Great
Western shipments owing to the
four different classes of ore cars in
use on the Great Northern railway
and the way in which these cars
have been loaded, but, after making all due allowances, the difference between the Miner's weekly
estimate and the corrected figures
is unreasonably great and as the
total shipments as published in the
morning paper are not corrected
week by week it will be easily seen
how unreliable it will gradually
grow. It will not do to let the
impression go out that the weekly
bulletins of the ore shipments from
Rossland are "padded," and a little care will prevent this.
There is no particular   trick   in
getting at the camp's weekly ton
rr.ee.   The War Eagle and Centre
Star shipments are well known and
as to the others a   little   care   in
watching the daily output will enable anyone who is careful to come
fairly close to the week's total every
Saturday.
SUGAR.
A striking paper on the "Dietetic
Value of Sugar'' appeared recently
iu the British Medical Journal by
Dr. Willottghby Gardner, says the
Spectator. Roughly speaking, the
world's consumption of sugar in
the last 15 years has doubled, while
in Great Britain it has trebled per
head in 40 years. Another interesting point is "that the English
and Americans stand easily at the
head of the list as the sugar eating
nation',. Dr. Gardner establishes
the fact that sugar is a potent creator of energy ancl maintainer of
stamina. This he contends is not
only proved by laboratory experiments, but by the case of the date
eating Arabs, the fine health of the
sugar cane eating Negroes, and
the results attained by Alpine
climbers, Arctic explorers, athletes and German soldiers fed on a
special diet. The doctor's general
conclusion is that the increased
height and weight aud the improved
health of the English people in the
last half century are largely due to
the increased consumption of sugar.

GOOD CLAIMS.
Assessment Work on the Dardenelles
and Liverpool.
Messrs. Charrington, Bath and
Brokeushire, the latter representing W. Hartley's interest, have
j 11st returned from doing assessment work on the Dardenelles and
Liverpool claims on the west fork
of Sheep creek. The shaft is now-
down 20 feet and a fine two foot
ledge of quartz ore has been opened
up. Mr. Hartley has a good looking specimen from the ledge
and is having assays taken. On
returning yesterday the party
found that the bridge on the Dewdney trail over main Sheep creek
had gone down with the spring
floods. They were unable to cross
and sent young Ed. Paul over to
the Velvet mine for assistance.
The manager sent Armstrong to
help them out and after au hour's
hard work the party got over.
Commissioner Kirkttp's attention is
called to the fallen bridge.

Contractor Caine Arrested for Murdering William   Harrington,
Fears of lynching,
Erie, Pa,, May 23.—Contractor
John Caine shot and killed Wm.
Harrington near the Anchor Line
Wharves last night. Caiue claims
Harrington threatened him.
Trouble lias been brewing for
some time on these docks. The
longshoremen's unions objecting to
the contract system and men refusing t go to work. Caine had
contracted for holding freight and
twice brought gangs of men from
Buffalo, the last one on Tuesday.
These men after being seen by the
longshoremen, declined to go to
work and were sent back to their
homes. The feeling has grown
more bitter every day and last night
when Caine was taken to tho police
station, a crowd of nearly 1,000
men surrounded the place. The
' aspect was so threatening for the
life of tne prisoner that the police
quickly transferred him to the
county jail.
