CIVIC MANAGEMENT.
They are holding a. municipal
election in Spokane today and
judging from what appears in the
press of that city the issue to be
decided by the ratepayers is economical vs. extravagant administration.
As is usual in all American cities
the Democratic and Republican
parties have each a candidate for
the mayoralty and a ticket on
down throughout the list of offices
to be filled. There are other party
tickets but tbe main iuterest centers on the contest between the
Democrats and Republicans, aud
the fight for the mayoralty is the
chief of these.
It appears however that a municipal league was formed aud that
its chief feature was an emphatic
protest against some of the extravagance of the previous administration and an insistence for the
future oj greater economy.
Evidently the leagae is a stroug
organization, as both candidates
for mayor and their respective
friends are tumbling over each
other in their haste to proclaim
their adherence to the views insisted on by the league.
Some of the details of the extravagance objected to have a
curious likeness to sundry items
of expenses which the Rossland
city council will be called upon to
pass on almost immediately. If
our city fathers will take thc
trouble to ascertain what are
"necessaries" they will be somewhat surprised to find how many
things they can really do without,
at least for the present, and if they
will confine their expenditures
strictly to these "necessaries" they
will quickly ascertain that such a
policy meets with the approval of
the ratepayers at the present time
and under existing conditions.
A TURN FOR THE   BETTER.
The chief mines of the camp
have been preparing for an extensive output for the past three years
and we are just now commencing
to feel some of the results attained.
With the weekly output well over
the ten thousand mark we might
all feel that a new era had commenced in earnest. This is so or
partly so now, but at the commencement of the summer season we are
met with the unpleasant state ol
affairs current in the War Eagle
and Centre Star mines. If only
these two properties were iu a satisfactory shape and the public-
made fully aware of the fact the
summer of lyoi might very well be
looked to, to prove the best and
most satisfactory season the camp
has ever seen. VVe can only hope
that a turn for the better will be
announced regarding "The Heavenly Twins" and all that concerns
them and that by degrees -by even
slow degrees—confidence in these
properties outside and in the camp
may in a measure be restored.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Rossland Industrial World
has become a daily, and is now
The Evening World. It is well
patronized by advertisers, neat
typographically; gives a full telegraph and local news service, and
is independent politically. The
Miner wishes the World success.
—Greenwood Miner.
If instead of asking their solicitor to write long letters to the local
papers protesting  against  provin
cial legislation providing for proper
mining returns being made to the
minister of mines for publication
the "Heavenly Twins" would
make a point of issuing weekly
bulletins showing the progress
made and the position of the mines
they would fill a long felt want.
On Saturday the C. P. R. Telegraph company had some trouble
with their wires and it was late in
the day before the Associated Press
dispatches started coming in the
World office. Eater a lot of matter arrived aud the local notes
written earlier in the day got
knocked about the paper and pie-
sumably lost, except to a close
reader. That people read the
World over was proved by the
laughing comments subsequently
made on some of the supposedly
lost matter. Advertisers will
kindly note.
The position of War Eagle and
Centre Star stock on the share list
is indicative only, that up to a certain point at all events the president ignored the market aspect of
the case. Whether he and those
with him who control the shares
have now determined to take a
hand in the game and make some
money out of the situation or
whether the shares are still being
allowed to drift along is only
guessed at.
Minister Wu Is a Hero
Chicago, May 7.—"Minister Wu
is a hero and is entitled to the lasting gratitude of every American
citizen. The statement now being
circulated that I ever challenged
his truthfulness or his honesty of
intention is absolutely false." In
these words Major E. H. Conger,
United States minister to China,
disposed of the charge that he is at
enmity with Wu Ting Fang. Minister Conger is on his way to
Washington where he will remain
two weeks.
The President's Present
Denver, May 7.- A special dispatch from Santa Fe says: Four
beautiful turquoises from the Por-
terfield mines iu the Burro mountains were presented to President
McKinley yesterday by Governor
Otego at Deniing. The largest
stone weighed 20 karats and was a
superb specimen.

An Ogre for the British Press—Morgan's New Ocean Liners Are
to Be Magnificent.
New York, May 7.—J. P.Morgan remains an ogre for the sensational British press, and Mr. Carnegie's forecasts of the develop
ment of American industrial resources are printed in the largest
type. The consolidation of rail
way and shipping interests of the
Atlantic and Pacific seaboards,
with the possibiliiy that one capi
talist can fix through rates and
ocean transportation, is now
stock item \vifh financial writers
in England, who display remarka
ble credulity in accepting elastic
statements of the ulterior purposes
of American multi-millionaires, at
the same time they deplore English inability to form counter com
binations.
It is reported that Mr.   Morgan
is having two steamers   built   ex
clusively for first-class passengers
between New York and England
and on a scale of magnificence ex
ceeding anything hitherto   antici
pated.
if you want the litest styles ia cloths,
go and see K D. McMillen, next door

Tha Canal can ba Built for Laaa Than
$2S,000'000.
New York. May 7.—It is under
stood that the engineers who have
been making test borings and surveys for a route for the Nicarau*
gnan Canal, Bomu of whom just arrived here from Greyton, believe
that a canal across Nicarauguan
costing less than $25,000,000 iB
feasible. Tho work would include
ahout fifty.miles of embanking and
the cutting of rock for eighteen
miles from Lake Nicarauguan to
the Pacific ocean. The total length
of the route is 181 miles. The
highest ridge which it would be
necessary to cut through is slightly
more than 300 feet high. Great
care has to be taken to avoid sand

New York, May 6.—A. L. Trues
dale, president of the Delaware
Lackawanna and Western railroad
when asked yesterday about the
strike of the company's employes
at Scranton said: "I understand
that all the men employed in the
car repairing, blacksmith and
paint shops, to the number of 1,000
have struck because he suspended
an employe. Their action was
very unjust, because, the man
Hicks, grossly disobeyed the com*
pany's rules in quitting work aud
leaving the groutids with out a
permit. I am not informed
whether the men will go back to
work or not. If they do not their
places will be quickly supplied.
Their going out will make no real
hardship for us for several weeks
to come because our rolling stock
is just now iu first class condition.
R. D. McMillan, the merchant tailor,
owing to an increase of business has
moved next door to the 0. P. R. ticket
office.         tf
Tha Shamrock Trial.
London, May 7.—The Shamrock 11 lay at her moorings today
to allow her crew so tauten her rigging, stretched by the trial spins
and alter her running gear. The
main sail is not considered quite
satisfactory and Patsey has been
ordered to supply another which
will probably be used the next time
the yachts go out.
Captains Sycamore and Wingel
speak highly of the new boat, hut
Sycamore ' is still credulous. H ;
says it would be a  mistake   to
make much of a days sailing like
yesterday when nothing was intended but an informal trial.
Neither of them had been sent
along at full sketch. From Captain
Sycamore's remark it is gathered
that he considers the cup challenger had a good deal iu hand most of
the day.
PHOENIX  BOOMING
GraatOra Shipment* from camp Thia
Year So Far.
The record of ore shipments
from Phoenix camp for the Bret
four months of 1901 show that the
Miner-Graves syndicate sent out
to the company's smelter at Grand
Forks a total of 73,522 tons, or an
average of till) tons daily, Sunday's
included. The shipments by months
were as follows:
January, 18,000 toiiB; February,
16,360 tons; March, 19208 tons-
April, 18,904 tons. Total 72,522
tons.
At this rate 610 tons per day,
if there was no increase in the rate
of shipments, hy the last, day of
the year there would be shipped
222,657 tons of ore,* or the same
amount that was sent of Rossland
camp, during 1901. But there is
no doubt whatever but that late in
the year, as soon as the smelter
can handle it, the output will be at
least doubled, It is therefore perfectly reasonable to estimate now
that the years output will reach
close to, if it does not exceed, 300,-
000 tons. —Pioneer.
A Body Found.
Chicago, May 7.—The body of a
man found in the slip at Morgan
street, and the south branch is believed by the police to show a
murder committed during a strike
last winter.
The man is thought to have been
Bert Shaw, formerly of Greene,
N.Y., and a member of the local
union No. 7 of the woodworkers.
The police think Shaw was concerned in the strike at auger's
plaining mill and that he was murdered and thrown into the river.
There were signs of violence ou the
body. A letter of recommendation from a manufacturing company of Greene, N. Y., was found
in his clothing.
Police think the man was killed
about the time of the murder of
the non-union man Farrass, in
November and they believe that
the man met death at the hands of
the same gang.
