A HUGE WAR LEVY
South  African   Mines  to
Stand Cost of War.
ARE TO BE TAXED $250,000,000
Consternation In Etirope---Strong
Protest from Germany-Stockholder* Are Amazed.
New York, June 13.—A dispatch
to the World from London says:
"The British government has decided to levy $250,000,000 on the
Transvaal gold mines to help to,
pay the cost of the war. Sir David
Harbour, formerly finance minister
for India, who was commissioned
to report upon the taxable capacity of theHO mines, advised Colonial Secretary Chamberlain to
levy $175,000,000 but Mr. Chamberlain after consultation with
Lord Milner, increased the maxium
to the amount stated."
"This action, when it becomes
known, is certain to cause consternation among the Kaffir stockholders, who fancied that the idea of
taxing the mines which are mostly
owned in England, had been abandoned. As these very gold mines
were the real underlying cause of
the war, manyhavemaintained that
their British owners should be
made lo bear a large share at least
of its heavy burden."
Germany Protests.
Berlin, June 13.—The report of
the British Transvaal concessions'
committee is severely condemned
here by the whole press, as being
high handed and denying private
property rights in war, against the
practice and theory of all civilized
countries. The correspondent of
the Associated Press learns from a
reliable source that the German
government has instructed the German embassy in London to protest against the gross wrong meditated against a large number of
German stockholders in the Netherlands-South African railroad
whenever it appears certainor even
likely, that the British government
will adopt the committee's report.
Germany takes the ground that
the German stockholders have an
undoubted right to full compensation from Great Britain for their
shares. Germany recalls her own
proceeding after the war of 1870-71
when she purchased at a high price
the French Eastern railroad, in
Alsace-Lorraine, although the road
aided France in every possible
manner during the war. The society formed here for the protection
of German stockholders of the
Transvaal railroad says steps have
already been taken to compel Great
Britain to do the stockholders justice.

schooner Czar, bound from Labrador with fishermen and their families, seventy persons in all. was
driven ashore on Itabot Island, on
the North coast of New Foundland,
in a dense fog Sunday night.
A desperate struggle with the elements ensued, the men trying to
land the women and children in the
teeth of a gale. The latter were
finally saved, but four men were
drowned and six others were injured in the undertaking. The survivors were ou the island two days
without food or shelter.
The Czar became a total wreck
and those on board of her lost all
their belongings. The women and
children were in a pitable plight.

Yesterday.
Chicago,    June   Ki.—During   a
storm last night the residence of
Kire Marshal Driscoll of Chicago
was shattered by lighting.
The marshal was stunned and
left unconscious by the stroke. His
wife quickly relieved him by
sprinkling water on his face, but
while she was thus engaged the fire
cut off the exits in front and the
marshal upon regaining consciousness had to carry his wife, her
mother and his children to a place
of safety. Then he directed the
department in its work, both upon bis own residence and a neighboring house, which was first
struck.
A number of other buildings
were struck by lightning throughout the city and suburbs and much
damage was done by wind and
water.

Tacoma, June 13.—The grand
lodge of Masons have rescinded the
resolution adopted two years ago
recognizing negro masonry. The
action of the lodge at tbat time
was severely criticised all over the
United States and as a result the
next session of the grand lodge attempted to return lo the old estab-,
lished principles, but the resolution
was so artfully drawn that sister
lodges refused to construe it as an
honest expression. The grand
lodge has now, in unmistakable
anguagc, made its views known.

Pittsburg, June 13.—A confer-
ference at which the wages of the
next year of over 50,000 workmen

The new scale of wages adopted
by the Milwaukee convention of
the amalgamated association last
week will be presented at the Cleveland conference and what is decided upon there will be regarded
as final by all the asso- mtion's
workmen affected. The/ advance

Viper's Consumption of Coal! Upset
Channel Co's Plans.
London, June 13.—The naval

the three week's trial of the British
turbine torpedo boat destroyer Viper, which was conducted under
regular service conditions, and during which she developed a speed of
30 l-'Jknols.iuid was also pronounced capable of doing 31, says her
coal consumption was enormous at
top speed, which, the paper adds,
militates against the plan which tho
Dover-Calais Company is now
maturing, to build two turbine
channel steamers and reduce the
time of crossing between England
and Franco.

A NEW REFORMER.
Justice William Travers Jerome
of New York, the man who personally raids the gambling bells of
the big city, is destined to become
a personage of account in municipal affairs. He comes from a prominent New York family, and graduated from Amherst and from tbe
Columbia law school in 1884. He
is relentless and uncompromising,
and has had an ambition to be district attorney of New York.
Mr. Jerome does not share in the
popular belief regarding Richard
Croker and Tammany. He says:
"There have been many accusations
to the effect that the sinews of war
are procured by Tammany by a
systematic levying of tribute upon
gambling bouses and those who
live by every other form of vice in
New York. In my judgment,
founded upon evidence, I do not
believe that Tammanygets a single
dollar in this way. What I mean
is, that Tammany does not collect
any money from these people and
give a guarantee of protection as a
consideration.
"The money paid for protection
goes to the men who aro able
to furnish protection and-
they are in the police department, But they do not stop these
things because it is not profitable
to do so."
"Tammany does get a large
amount of money from gamblers
and keepers of resorts. Before elections it is certain that these men
go deeply into their pockets and
furnish large sums to belli Tammany win and there may be certain leaders who get a share of this
protection money, but it is not
right to connect the Taniany organization with the acts of individuals."
Mr. Jerome, who has Democratic
inclinations, makes some very fine
distinctions about the exact way
"corrupt New York" is corrupted
and most people will differ from
him, but he is in a position to
know and has shown by bis public
actions and utterances that he is a
practical lighting reformer of the
stamp wanted in New York's municipal affairs.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
Ireland, which has 16,411 less
population than Scotland, lias 10.)
members in the British bouse of
commons while Scotland has only
72. England, which contributes
80 per cent of the revenue, has
little more than 70 per cent of the
representation.
It cannot be said that the stale
of affairs in South Africa is partie-
larly encouraging to the mining
companies, says the Engineering A
Mining Journal. Military rule is
hardly compatible with mining and
milling operations on a large scale.
As long as it lasts there can be
very little expansion in production,
and the limited number of companies which have been allowed to
begin work can hardly be increased. Moreover, the accounts of Boer
operations received by telegraph do
not point to an early ending of military rule. The outlook for large
production is not nn encouraging
one as yet.
The situation at 'Northport is
just where Manager Macdonald
left it when be said to the Wniii.i)
last week: "You may slate that I
have read President Shed's letter
in the WORLD of Thursday and am
content to leave the matter as bo
puts it."
THE   TRAIL  SMELTER
Has Mr. Aldrldge Got Good News for
the Smelter City?
AV. H. Aldridge, general manager of the Trail smelter, came back
from tbe east yesterday, accompanied by Dr. Ladoux of New
York. Dr. Ladoux is ono of- the
experts who examined the Canadian smelter for the Gooderham
syndicate recently.
Mr. Gooderham stated some
weeks ago that the deal for the
plant was not over but "was still
pending." Since then nothing has
been heard of the matter.
There was a rumor around town
last evening that Mr. Aldridge had
good news for Trail concerning tbe
new refinery but whether the plant
is to be erected at once there or
just what the manager has accomplished is not known.

THE CENSUS
OF LONDON
What   Partially   Revised
Ffgures of Greater London Show.
The official figures of the British
census gave the growth of London
—that is, the area under the jurisdiction of the county council—at
less than 7 per cent. This did not
seem much; but a further set of
official figures now available puts
the growth of London in its proper
light. The latest statistics apply
to what is called the "outer ring,"
reaching from Enfield to Croydon
and from Brentford to Ilford. The
increase in this outer ring has been
45.3 per cent. The increase in,the
previous decades, 47.8 in 1881-.ll
andriO.r) in 1S71-S1, were higher,
but the actual increases of population were smaller.
The following table presents a
view of the growth of ti renter London, which approaches a million in
ten years:—

Thomas Sullivan, Leadville.
The Federation decided to establish permanent headquarters in the
city of Denver and will very likely
erect u building of its own at some
time in the near fiituje. Denver
won hy a vote of 156 to 145. It
will lie some weeks before a change
of headquarters is made.
The unions have decided upon
the formation of a new and independent party which will act in the
interests of labor at the coming
elections. Tlie resolutions protest

unanimously and members of the
unions will bring all influence possible to bear upon members of congress looking to legislation favorable to exclusion.

ANOTHER
ACCIDENT
Joseph  Gill Meets Death
in the Black Bear Shaft
This Morning.
Shortly before 8 o'clock this
morning Joseph Gill, cage tender
in the main shaft of tho Le Roi
mine, fell from the station at the
seventh level to the bulkhead at
the 800-foot station, a distance of
100 feet. When found by the mine
foreman Gill was just able to speak
and in answer to tho question
"how did it happdn" had jukt
strength enongh to whisper "fell,"
and then lapsed into unconsciousness from which he never rallied.
He died at the Sisters' hospital,
where he had been removed, about
11 o'clock this morning.
At the company's office it was
stated this morning that the fatal
accident could not be accounted
for. Gill had been employed as
cage tender for the past three years
and understood his work thoroughly. He went on shift tbis morning
as usual and bad sent up one load
of oro from tbe 700-foot station. At
the time tbe accident happened he
had given tbe signal to hoist the
west skip. In response to his signal tile skip was run to the surface
and found to be empty. The engineer informed the mine foreman,
Fritz Damuth, that something
must have happened to the tender and Damuth on reaching the
800-foot station found Gill lying on
the bulkhead as already described.
The deceased was alone at the
time of the accident and no positive statement could be obtained
this morning as to just what happened. There is a striking similarity between the last fatal accident
in the camp—the case of Gillan's
death in the Nickel Plate shaft two
weeks ago—and the fatality this
morning.
Dr. Angus Kenning, who attended the deceased at the hospital this
morning, said that when be arrived
Gill hardly showed any sign of life.
His left leg was badly broken and
be had a bad scalp wound and
some bruises about the body, but
the doctor could not say what was
the exact cause of death. An inquest will be held tbis evening
when the factB of this distressing
case may be brought out more
fully.
Joseph Gill was just 25 years of
age, was born in Yorkshire, England, and resided with his aged
father upon the War Eagle flat in
thiB city for the past three years.
He was an exemplary young man
and an active member of the miners union. His untimely fate is
deeply regretted by all his comrades and many friends.'
The funeral will not take place
until the elder brother of the deceased, John J. Gill, is hoard from.
At present he is mining on Sheep
creek somewhere and word has
been sent ont to him.
The flags on Miners' Union hall
and the shaft house of the Le Roi
were flying at half mast this afternoon out of respect for the deceased.

Shreveport, La., June 13.— Later reports lrom the Foster Plantation, where John Gray Foster was
murdered yesterday, say a dozen or
more frightened negroes are cowering in tbe Kiunebrewsteie surrounded by a big mob which threatens
every moment to lynch the whole
party.
Prince Edwards, the negro who is
charged with firing tbe fatal shot,
has not yet been apprehended, however, and it is the desire to get him
that has restrained the mob thus
far.    Bloodhounds are being used
