A Flag Incident.
The day after the formal opening
of (be Rossland court house, Hon.
Mr. Justice .Martin was greatly
concerned at the disappearance of
tbe red ensign fi'om the court house
(kg pole. The sheriff and the gold
Commissioner were called to account and it is said that the latter
gave as an excuse for the non-hoisting of the flag that "it looked like
rain and they feared the bunting
would be Boiled." Tho learned
judge promptly ordered that the
flag be run up and kept in place
during the, sittings of the court
"rain or shine." This was of
course done and although Mr. Justice Martin has long departed, the
flag still floatH—day and night—no
one having been found brave
enough to haul it down, after the
judge's order.
EIGHT MINERS WERE   KILLED
Stored  Dynamite Caused the Explosion—Men Were All Married
—Children Fatherless.
Iron Mountain, Mich., June 4.—
Eight miners were killed today in
the Seventh level of the Ludington
shaft, Chapin mine, by deadly
fumes following an explosion of
dynamite.
Nearly 30 children were rendered
fatherless by the explosion. The
men entered the level early this
morning and it is supposed they
forgot to keep the powder thawing
machine supplied with powder.
The reason of the explosion "probably lies in the fact that the machine soon became red hot and set
off a quantity of dynamite stored
near by.

STEAMERS
RACE TODAY
Erie and Tashmoo Started
from Cleveland on a
Ten-Mile Run.
Cleveland, Juiie 4.—Stripped of
everything that, would unnecessarily catch the wind the two modern side wheel passenger steamers
City of Erie, of Cleveland, and tho
Tashmoo, of Detroit, lined up this
morning for a ten mile race from
Cleveland to Erie to decide the
speed championship of the great
lakes. Long before starting time
Cleveland harbor was alive with
crafts and the wharves wer,: black
with people. Whistles, blew beHB rang
and the din was deafening as the
two racers glistening in the morning sunlight steamed up to the
starting boat. Tbe patrol boats
busied themselves keeping the
course clear. Apparently both
bonis are evenly matched the Erie
is 3'23 feet over all, and 78 feet
beam against thi! Tashnioo's 320
feet length and 70 feet width. The
Erie was built to make fast schedules between Cleveland and Buffalo
under all conditions and has twice
the power of her rival. The Tiisli-
11100 was made for river work,draws
much less water thiin I be- Krie and .
is built like a cigar, with a sharp
tapering prow.     it  was estimated
that over if.100,00.1  will   phange
bands over the result of the race.
The belting was even, ranging from
sniall sums to thousands of dollars.
Tht! Cleveland and Buffalo
Transit company posted f 1000 on
the Erie against a similar amount
put up on the Tashmoo by the
White Star people,
Cleveland, June 4.—The City of
Erie csossea tbe starting line at
9:37.50; the Tashmoo at 9:38.31.

NEWEST ENGLAND.
H. D. Lloyd of Illinois has just
published a new book, "Newest
England; the Notes of a Democratic.Traveler in New Zealand—
with Some Australian Comparisons," and his latest effort promises to be as successful aB his
"Wealth Against Commonwealth."
In the concluding chapter of this
interesting book the writer Bums
up the record of ten years work in
New Zealand thus:
"The policy of taxation is reversed. The general property tax
on improvements, enterprise and
poverty is abolished, and the taxation for national purposes of land
and incomes introduced. Taxation
is taken off from capital that is
working and put on capital that is
idle. The small man, because
small, is exempted, and tbe rich
man, because rich, is made to pay
more, progressively, the more land
and income he has. The burden
of the old property tax forced the
poor men who worked their places
to sell out to the rich neighbor,
who escaped taxation and grew
rich by making no improvements.
The new tax is planned especially
to make the rich land owner sell
to his small neighbor or to the
government, which will sub-divide
and sell to them itself. The old
taxes built up monopolies; the
new taxes, 'buret them up.' To
check speculation, to equalize pov-
er y and wealth, to prevent great
estates, these are some of its avowed objects."
By compulsory arbitration the
public gets for tbe guidance of public opinion all the facts as to disputes between labor and capital,
puts an end to strikes and lockouts,
clears its markets and its civilization of the scandals and Iobscs, of
street fights between the buyers
and sellers of labor, und enables
both sides to make contracts without strike clauses for years abend
In New Zealand the best stock
of civilization was isolated by destiny for the culture of reform, as
the bacteriologist isolates his culture of germs. New Zealand has
discovered an anti-toxin of revolution—a cure of monopoly by monopoly. New Zealand, because
united, was able to lead; because
she has led, others can follow.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The situation at Northport today
is an object lesson in favor of compulsory arbitration. An independent board of arbitrators could do
justice to all concerned and settle
thc difficulty in one session.
The connection between the situation on thc London exchange
and thut at Northport is being very
closely followed in Rossland. The
matter should be cleared up in a
dav or so.
"Knocking" flourishes in this
camp in some quarters. It is a
business we could all do without.
A firm over the border recently issued a business card with "Don't
be a Knocker" on the back of it
and the following good advice
(which applies to Rossland at the
present time): "Don't knock. Help
yourself along by becoming popular, and push your friends with
you. It's dead easy. Re a good
fellow and you will soon have a
procession of followers. No man
ever helped himself by 'knocking'
other people down in character and
business. No man ever got rich
by trying to make others believe
that he was the only man in town
who knew anything. You can't
climb the ladder of success by
treading on others' corns. Keep
off the corns and don't 'knock.'
You are not the only. There are
others, and they have brains and
know something as well as you.
There is no end of fun minding
your own business. It makes other
people like you. Nobody gets stuck
on the 'knocker.' "
As summer is now here, and your
clothes are getting shabby you will want
a new suit ol clothes. If you will call at
McMillen, the tailor, yoa will be euited
in prices and clothes.    'Phone 256.      tf

The   Constitution    Dismasted    This
Afternoon
Newport, R. I., June 4.—The
Constitution was dismasted while
on her trial spin this afternoon.
The accident happened off Bren-
tan's Reef lighthouse, three' miles
out from Narragansett pier, about
'2.15 o'clock.
To all appearance the Constitution is badly crippled. From the
shore the mainmast appeared to
have been broken about half way
up. The boom swung to the lee
side and the mainsail and rigging
were carried overboard. The tender Mount Morris was beside the
boat in a few minutes and began
picking up wreckage. At 3 o'clock
she took the Constitution in tow
headed for Newport. The wind
was strong from thc Bouthwest
when the mast went down, and the
yacht was on the starboard tack
and making headway,

St, George's Ohurch
There was a largely attended
meeting of the members of St.
Qeorge's church last evening and
it was the unanimous feeling of the
meeting that a new church building
should be erected at once.
The whole question was referred
back to the special committee
which will report again at a later
date.
Will Wait Now
The Roman Catholic churcn authorities have obtained an option
on Mr. Dundee's two lots to the
south of the church aud on the adjoining lot to the wost. It was intended to make extensive improvements here, erect a Rchool house
move tho church aud make other
changes but owing to the trouble
at Northport it is likely that the
matter will be allowed to stand.

grain belt 18 miles south of here.

China Casuallty List.
London, June 4.—The Exchange
Telegraph company has published
a dispatch from St. Petersburg saying the Russian disutility list in
China, including the storming of
Pekin, shows 31 officers and 682
men killed or died of injuries.
Large Building Burnt to the Ground-
Loss $25,000.
This would not have happened if the
building had been lighted by electric
lights. Besides coal oil is costly, and there
is the trouble of filling lamps, taking
care of wicks and the breakage ot chimneys. Eleclric light reduces the cost of
your insurance, lessens the danger from
fire and adds to the comforts of the store
and home. Electric power supplied for
mining and manufacturing purposes.
Motors for rent or sale. Estimates furnished for wiling and lighting. Ring
