ASSASSIN HAS DEPARTED
Leon Czolgosz Was Electrocuted
This Morning.
HE WAS NOT SORRY FOR HIS AGT
Made a Brief Speech-A-tthe Chair-Only Expressed
His Regret at Not Seeing His Father-
Slept Quietly.
Auburn, N. Y., Oct. 29.—Leon
Czolgosz was electrocuted at 7.12$
this morning. The prisoner wakened at 4:45, having had a night
of almost unbroken rest.
He laid down shortly after 5
o'clock but did not sleep again.
Shortly after six he   got   up   and
dressed in the clothes in which he
was executed. A few minutes later
a substantial breakfast was sent to
him.
The prisoner made a brief speech
in the chair. He said he was not
sorry for what he had done but
expressed regret that he had not
seen his father.
THE MOST
DEMOCRATIC
No Pro-Boers-The  Franchise Is  Practically
Universal.
In a letter written by one of the
followers of the Duke of Cornwall
and York's party on their great
colonial tour, appears the following
remarks on New Zealand:
"Here in New Zoaland we have
the most democratic of all civilized
communities. What to us in Great
Britain would seem the wildest
Socialistic doctrines are carried
into practice, and yet one finds in
New Zealand above all countries a,
warm imperialist sentiment, a universal and warm patriotism and
loyalty to the British throne.
"There is no foolish talk here of
the dangers of militarism, the abolition of war, and the brotherhood
of nations. There are even no pro-
Boers.
"Thc Socialists of this colony
have nothing in common with
those of Battersea Park, who would
fare badly did they ventilate their
theories in this country. During
our stay I had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of all the
members of the New Zealand Ministry, and have had frequent opportunities of conversing with
them—tho very able man who is
premier, the Right Hon. R. J. Seddon; the Hon. J. G. Ward, one of
the most clever and justly popular
men in the country, now postmaster-general and minister of
railways; the Hon. James Carrool,
the native minister, himself a
Maori and a man of great ability;
and the other men who compose
the government of this nourishing
colony.
"These are the men who have
been chosen by the most democratic people under the British
flag to represent them, in a land
where the franchise is universal,
every man and woman of age having a vote, and where the Maoris
also from their own territories
send their delegates to parliament."

A FATAL
ACCIDENT
Drilled Into a Hissed Hole
at the Iron Mine Near
Kitchener.
A fatal accident occurred at the
iron mine near Kitchener on last
Wednesday afternoon about five
o'clock in which " HugTi English,
a miner, lost his life by drilling into a missed hole.
Hugh English and Frank Shannon went on shift shortly after
four o'clock. They had been
warned of the missed hole by the
men coming off shift. They mucked back and searched for the missed hole but could not find it,so they
went to work, euch working single
hammer. They had not worked
long when English's drill struck
the powder and an explosion
followed. English had a leg and
an arm blown off and was otherwise badly torn by the flying rock,
and Shannon was somewhat in-
injured about the face, but not
seriously.
English lived only a few hours
afler the accident and waB buried
at Kitchener on Friday. He haB
several brothers living at Kitchener. Shannon is a brother of Wil-
iam Shannon, the packer, well-
known in east Kootenay.
MILNER IS
DOUBTFUL
"Let Us Not Count Upon
it Coming in  a
Hurry."
Peitermaritzburg, Natal, Oct 29.
—Lord Alfred Milner, governor of
the Transvaal and British high
commissioner in South Africa, is
not among those prophesying a
settlement in South Africa. Replying to an address from the corporation on October 25th he Baid
he hoped his visit to Natal would
lead to a few tentative steps in the
direction of his desire for a peaceful and prosperous South Africa,
one great community under tho
British flag. "But," added Lord
Milner, "let us not count upon it
coming in a hurry."

ALL GOING DOWN
The Manager,   the Cage
and the Shares.
LEROI STOCK TAKES A TUMBLE
From £8 5s to £6 10s—What Is
the Matter?—Is it Stock Manipulation Again?
The great Le Roi mine appears
to be having rather a run of bad
luck of late.
First the able, general manager
was dropped out.
Then the mine cage dropped 600
odd feet.
And now the Le Roi stock has
dropped from £& 5 s. to £6 10 s. on
the London market.
What is going to drop next?
Le Roi £5 shares stood at £8 5 s.
in London on last Friday. This
morning the shares are quoted at
£6 10 s. on the English market.
No reason has been assigned for
the sudden drop, and it is presumed that the shares of Le Roi
No. 2, Rossland Great Western and
Kootenay have also been correspondingly depressed.
The whole matter may be merely
another case of stock manipulation
or as suggested by a Rossland
broker this morning, Mr. Frecheville may have sent over a report
which has caused the drop.

Write Your Name and Addreaa Plainly.
A stray Englishman, a mining
engineer, or more likely a London
stock jobber, who is wandering
about the Kootenays taking in the
situation generally, is writing a
series of letters to the London
Financial News.
The correspondent's views on
mining matters are worthy of note,
and we do not doubt that his statements will be read with peculiar
interest by every dweller in the
west at the present time.
Speaking generally, the writer,
says:
"It is claimed by managers of
English mining companies that
mining in British Columbia is unprofitable, because mining legislation has been unfavorable to the
mine owners, and also on account
of the constant troubles with the
miners resulting in strikes. The
facts are that want of success has
been due firstly to the mines being overloaded with promotion
money; secondly, to insufficient
working capital having been provided; and thirdly, to incompetent
management. It is true that some
unwise legislation has placed heavy
burdens on land owners. Much of
this will be remedied by the Conservative government now in
power, and there is not the slightest chance of the demagogues who
fathered this legislation again getting into office."
Referring to the situation in
Rossland, the correspondent writes
his paper as follows:
"The strike in Jthe Le Roi mine
was occasioned by the refusal of
the manager to pay the muckers
as high wages as are paid in other
mines. The muckers—the men
who remove the valueless rock,
simply laborers, not miners, in any
sense of the word—receive 10s. per
day, and struck because they could
not get 12s. Twelve shillings is
paid in some mines, although it is
4s. too muoh. The muckers in the
Le Roi mine were to some extent
justified at any rate in asking for
as high wages in one of the most
valuable mines in the world as are
paid in other mines."
In conclusion, the writer says
that no attempt has been made to
injure the mines here because
it would not be tolerated,
and he adds "the best course
is to deal fairly with the men and
replace the strikers with a better
clagB of men."
Accustomed as we all are out here
to the remarkable statements made
in home papers by traveling Englishmen from time to time,no great
fault can be found with the views
of this particular writer, who is evidently sincere. But he might
have been generous enough to
have given our working miners
due credit for honestly obeying
the law. He might also have
stated that "the better class of
miners" could not be got so long as
the strike continues. In place of
of saying that some of the other
mines pay muckers $3 per day,
he should have frankly stated that
all other working mines in the
Kootenays except the Le Roi
group are paying these wages today.
The writers views on "the conservative government will be relished by readers of the morning
paper.
Three hundred and sixty-two
cases were recorded in 1900 in
which recourse was had to the
means provided by the French
Conciliation and Arbitration Law
of December 27th, forsettling labor
disputes. The number of cases, in
which recourse was had to that
law in 1899 was 197. The number
of disputes involved in the 3G2 applications of the law in 1900 was
234 (including nine disputes in
which no stoppage of work had
taken place), as compared with 190
(including two disputes in which
no stoppage had taken place) in
1899.
CHAINED
FOR TEN
YEARS
NOTICE!
There is nothing like Asthmalene.
It brings instant relief, even in the
woret cases. It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa
Ridge, 111., saye: "Your trial bottle of
Asthmalene received in good condition.
I cannot tell you how thankful I feel
for the good derived from it. I was a
slave, chained with putrid sore throit
and Asthma for ten years I despaired
of ever being cured. I saw your advertisement for the cure of this dreadful
and tormenting disease, Asthma, and
thought you had overspoken yourselves,
but resolved to give it a trial. To my
astonishment, the trial acted like a
charm,   Bend me a full size bottle."
An   amusing  incident occurred
during the Btay  of   the Duke and
Duchess of York at Poplar Point
which evidently escaped the notice
of the correspondents accompanying the party.     When   the Duke
returned   to   the   railway station
from the  lake he was met by the
Duchess, who embraced her Royal
spouse affectionately.     The greeting   was   scarcely   over   vihen   a
buxom woman,   who  was among
the country folk assembled to Bee
the party   depart,   bounced   up to
the Duke, caught him in her arms
and planted a   smacking kiss on
his cheek.   The DuohesB laughed
heartily   and   the   Duke  likewise
seemed   to   enjoy the   experience
immensely after he recovered from
hiB amazement.     The   good lady
explained that she just wished to
have  the  distinction   of    having
kissed the future King of England.

Gentlemen: I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the

afflicted with spasmodic asthma for the past 12 years. Having exhausted my own
skill as well as many others, I chanced to see your Bign upon your windows on

commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed a radical I
improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared and she is entirely free from all symtoms. I Icel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.

Lawlees conduct on the
strikers is practically unknown,
except where the men have been
aggravated beyond endurance by
the lawless conduct of their employers. This reputation is a
proud one, and one that every effort should be made to maintain it
unblemished. Yet, if conditions
are to be perpetuated whereby certain classes of the community have
just grounds to believe that they
cannot look for justice from the
law officers of the Crown, frequent
and disastrous breaches of the law
may be anticipated. The invaria
ble result of unjust administration
of the law, is the creation of contempt for, and violation of, the
law by those unjustly treated.
Nothing more fatal to the well being of this province can be imagined than the perpetuation of
conditions which make manifest
to a large proportion of our population that, under certain circumstances, they cannot hope for a just

The Victoria Times in a long
article on success of mining says
in part:
"This never dying wail about oppressive taxation of mines is getting positively tiresome. The chief |
object of all the governments
British Columbia has had, in recent years at least, has been to encourage the development of the
mineral resources of the province.
* * * If London promoters
choose to increase stock beyond
the limit, they need hardly expect the people of British Columbia to provide them with facilities
for carrying on their operations
free of cost in order to enable them
to declare dividends. ThiB is a
point it is necessary to speak plainly upon. There is no charge of oppressive taxation heard from the
Mount Sicker district, and surely
the nre of the Lenora is not more
valuable than that of Le Roi.

The lttght Argument nt Last.
The striking Iron WorkerB
of Seattle refuse to budge a bit in
their fight for a nine hour day,
and they give an unanswerable
reason in a letter to the mayor's
political committee.   Here it is?
"It so happened that the American workman has discovered that
he is not receiving his due profit
from the existing prosperous eon
ditions in the United States. Improved machinery has made the
cost of production bo oheap that
the average created wealth, according to the very latest figures of
the labor commissioners, tor every
worker is $1888 per annum, and
the average rate of pay is ..347 per
annum. The percentage iB so
much on the wrong side that we
believe our modebt request for a
nine hour day with a day's pay
should be granted without more
delay." .
When the American working-
man, all of him, really discovers
that he creates $1500 a year more
than he gets, he will not stop at a
"modest request for a nine hour
day with a day's pay," and have
to fight for years to get' that, but
he will grasp the ballot and overthrow thoBe conditions that preserve the wage system with its awful robbery.
Boys, you have been making a
splendid struggle for five months
at the greatest personal sacrifices,
and all you will get afler all is a
gain of one hour a day. You may
may possibly get $400 a year instead of $347. But how about the
other thousand or so dollars that
you create and don't get a cent
of? When and how will you get
that?
The same brave fight put up at
the ballot box will make you rich
and independent and happy.
That is what the Socialist party
Btands for. Is not that the real
workingman's party? Ie there
any hope for labor along any other
line?—The Socialist.

METEOR
is the new high-grade mining
camp in the south half of the Colville Reservation, seven miles west of the Columbia river, eight miles southwest of Daisy and 28
miles by good road from Meyers Falls. The town-
site is in the centre of tne rich aggregation of
mines comprising the Meteor, Stray Dog, White
Swan and Given groups, all of whioh are working
in high-grade shipping ore. A great number of
very promising properties are opening up in the
vicinity. It is surrounded by a splendid agricultural, fruit growing and stock raising country,
