THE KING IS SAFE
Latest from Southampton
This Evening.
A VERY NARROW  ESCAPE
Was on Board the Shamrock When
the Accident Happened—Maintained His Composure.
.The following dispatch arrived
at 3:30, showing that the king was
on board Shamrock II this morning
and had a verp narrow escape.
Ryde, Isle of Wight, May 22.—
There was some delay in establishing a starting line. The wind
freshened considerably and blew
twelve to thirteen knots. King Kdward, desiriug to take an active
part iu the proceeding, was taken
ou board the challenger.
While the yachts were manoett-
vering for the start a squall came
up without the slightest warning
aud the bowsprit of the Challenger
was carried away short. The extra
strain thus thrown ou the topmast
proved too much for the spar, it
whipped, broke and doubled off to
leeward, carrying the whole weight
of the jackyard and the gear over
the side in a terrible tangle. Almost as the topmast fell, the great
steel mast weighing over two tons
and earry ing spars and gear weighing an additional threeor four tons,
swayed for a moment and then by
great good fortune, plunged over
the side into the water with the
sound of breaking wire aud tearing
gear in the air.
The members of the royal party
were seated on deck, close to the
companion way. The yacht was
racing along at a formidable angle
aud the sloping deck with a mere
fringe of rail seemed a rather perilous place for the accommodation of
the visitors. As the wreckage
swept the deck it was most astonishing that no one was injured.
For a moment or two the situation
appeared to be very grave. The
king maintained his composure.
Most of the head men went overboard.
Within live seconds Shamrock I
b ire around to render assistance,
when she in turn was caught by
the squall and her topsail spar collapsed, making her helpless. The
press tug following lhe racer ranged
alongside the helpless yachts and a
torpedo boat which was in the
vicinity and the Sybarita sent bouts
to the scene. In answer to a hail
Captain Sycamore sent the reassuring message that all on board had
escaped without injury.
As quickly as possible tho King
and the royal party were transferred to tho Erin and later the King
accompanied by sir Thomas Upton lauded at Southampton enroute to I.ondou. The yachts were
towed bin k to Hytllo to await a
decision as to what should bo done
towards repairing them.

A   HORRIBLE  STORY-
Political Prisoners at Bogota—Revolting Scenes in Colombian Jail.
New York, May 22.—General
Rafael Uribe-Uribe, the Colombian
revolutionary leader, now in this
city, issued a statement last night
regarding the treatment of political
and military prisoners hy the present Colombian government. He said:
"The penitentiary at Bogota is a
small one and in it has been crowded moro than two thousand political prisoners besides five hundred
ordinary criminals, in order to get
sleep the prisoners have to take
turns in lying down, an there is not
enough room for all to lie down al
once. Their beds are tho damp.
cold and filthy pavement of tho
prison. There being neither water
nor sanitary facilities. The wretches
breathe only poisoned air and smallpox, dysentery and typhus fever
have been playing havoc among the
unfortunate creatnres.
"These statements have'been confirmed in the records published by
the official board of health. Well
known and promiuent men have
been loaded with chains.
Among the prisoners are a large
number of boys, from 10 to 12 yersa
old. The methods followed for
sending people to the dungeons
have been copied after those ot the
inquisition- that is, the anonymous
denunciations.
General Marceliano Velez, the
commander in chief on beiug appellee! to by the prisoners and finding himself powerless to put a stop
to the horrors, resigned.
"The governor promised to release the prisoners if I would issue
a manifest advising tho liberals to
stop fighting in. spite of the fact
that the government has not kept
its word, the lighting will cease for
a time. When, however, the liberals have succeeded in gathering
sufficient money and ammunition,
the fighting will be resumed. When
it begins again I shall return to
Colombia to lead the liberal army."
The Peoples' Store got in a large consignment of Clothing misBsent on December -28th, and on refusing to accept
it they got an allowance of 40 per
cent. This enables them to sell for bo
much less. This is no fake. Sec the

SHAMROCK
WRECKED
Sudden Squall Took the Mast Out
of the Challenger-Fortunately
no One Was Hurt.
Southhampton, May 22.—The interest shown in. the event by King
Edward added special zest to todays trial of the Shamrocks. His
Majesty, who was accompanied
only by his personal attendants,
was met at the pier by Sir Thomas
Upton and W. G. Jameson.
Although it was originally intended that the King should sail
011 board the Challenger, it was
pointed out tnat there was a considerable element of danger when
a lightly built racer was hard
driven, so the programme was
changed and it was decided lhat
His Majesty should witness the
race from the Ki in.
3:20 p.ia.—A dispatch says a
sudden squall struck the Shamrock
II in the Solent today and her rigging wont by the board. No one
was hurt.
3:3.'! p.m.—A further dispatch
says the mast and the sails of the
cup Challenger were carried away
and that she appeared to be a
wreck. Shamrock I lost her topsail in the squall.
King Edward witnessed the disaster from the Erin.
Tho topmast of the Shamrock II
was carried away and then her
mainmast went by the board, carrying all her sails with it and leaving
her practically a wreck.
Southampton, May 22.—Tho disaster occurred while preparations
were being made for the start off
tpo Brambles Bury.
THE BIG STRIKE
Many Machinists Joining
the Strikers Today.
NO CHANGE IN SITUATION
President O'Connell Says that All
Their Demands Will be granted
by Monday Next-
San Francisco, Cal., May 22:—
Absolute order -has so far been
maintained in the strike of machinists here. Thirteen shops have
granted the workmen's demands-
The Fulton & McCormick Iron
Works have been virtually closed
by the strike of moulders employed
iu these places. Moulders in other
shops did not strike because they
say the movement has not yet received the sanction of their national
hody in Cincinnati.
Henry T. Scott, of the Union
[ron Works, declared that the em--
ployers were ready and willing to
hold a conference with the men
employed by the Union Iron Workers or other places affected.
Buffalo, May 22.—Supt. VanAl-
lan said today:
"Our locomotive shopmen at Buffalo are out. Total 254 out of 354
being on strike. Their places, are
being filled with new men. We
have at work today 148 and everything is moving eihoothly.
"There is nothing iu the report
of the strike of our switchmen.
Some irresponsible -parties attempted to stir up discontent with
them last night, but were unsuccessful. Tho rank and file after a meeting in which certain matters wero
discussed, repudiated the efforts of
the parties roforretl to."
Demands Will B° Granted.
Washington, May 22.—President
O'Connell of the International Association of Machinists, estimates
that the number of Machinists engaged in the strike today is 40,000.
Hy next Monday morning, he said,
"probably 90 per cent, of those
who went out will be back at work
with their demands granted. The
other 10 per cent, are mostly on the
Pacific coast aud in several Ohio
cities. San Francisco is the only
place where we look for a protracted
strike.

MINE REPORTS.
The World gives some figures
today taken from the last official
report published of the Le Roi and
L,e Roi No. 2. Manager Macdon-
ald's reports are sent to England
every month or oftener—interim
reports as to shipments, values,
etc., being cabled weekly—aud the
directors promptly publish the information in the London financial
papers. It seems a pity that much
of the information mentioned cannot be given out here at the time it
appears in the English papers, but
we get it in the long run even if
we are obliged to wait more or less
impatiently for it.
As we pointed out yesterday,
other Kootenay mines are publishing monthly reports and an act
was passed at the recent session of
the provincial legislature requiring
certain information be supplied
the minister of mines by all mining companies monthly or quarterly, and it is stated in the act that
the information so supplied is for
publication.
It is a matter of regret that some
mine managers should apparently
fear to let the facts be known about
the properties in their charge and
that it required an act of parliament to get the desired information, but now that the act has become law we trust the minister of
mines will strictly enforce it.
In due time, when the facts and
figures are obtainable, it may be
possible for the every day mining
man to find out some ot the details
of management—good or the reverse—which are now so jealously
withheld.
foreemcutrif compulsory arbitration in New Zealand must admit
that so far as it has gone a prima
facie case has been made out in
tavor of the system. It is certainly reassuring to know that there is
one country which, though having
many labor disputes, has not had
a strike within its borders for years.
New Zealand may be more happily
situated for the working out of
such a principle than other countries, but if a beginning is needed
on this continent it could nowhere
be more justly enforced than on
those public companies and their
employes which enjoy at the hands
of the public great privileges and
owe it corresponding duties and
obligations.''
A year ago in this camp we all
witnessed what could be accomplished by arbitration, and if any
any dispute arises here again settlement by arbitration should be at
least attempted before war is declared.

The earlier dispatches this morning contained a circumstancial account describing King Edward's
narrow escape from death on board
the yacht Shamrock II during the
third trial race.
The later news, however, stated
that, while the yacht was practically wrecked, His Majesty was
not on board, he having been persuaded at the last moment to witness the trial from the steam yacht
Erin.    "God save the King."

ARBITRATION.
When an industrial strike happens, arbitration by neutral parties
is apparently thelast thing thought
of. The interests of the whole
community may be most vitally affected by the result of the question
at issue between the contending
parties, valuable lives may be lost
and immense sums of money may
be practically thrown away in the
struggle, but it is only now and
then that a successiul appeal is
made to arbitration, and usually as
a final, in place of a first attempted
settlement of the difficulty.
It is quite clear why the labor
leaders in America have not looked
favorably on "compulsory arbitration" as carried out in New Zealand. The working man in the
States thoroughly distrusts the
judiciary aud believes that with a
judge as umpire or sole arbitrator
he would stand no chance whatever of getting fair play. He believes that rich and powerful corporations would, to all intents and
purposes, control the court to
which he and his co-workers are
asked to submit their case, and
with the history of the elective
bench in the United States in later
years as a guide, it would be very
difficult to disprove the working-
man's contention.
In the Dominion, whatever faults
the superior court judges may
have, they are at least incorruptible and could be appealed to con-
dently by all classes to assist, as
they do in New Zealand, in settling
industrial disputes.
Referriug to the Albany strike
aud its consexuences the Toronto
Globe has this to say about arbitration:
"Those who have followed the
series of articles relating tD the success which has   attended   the   en-
Now York, May 22.—President
I.oube't has received J. Pierpout
Morgan, tho American financier.
The United Slates ambassador presented Mr. Morgan at the Ely see
Palace, and the banker thanked the
president of the French republic for
the decoration of the legion of
honor which was presented as one
of the honors conferred upon fjr-
eiguers in connection with the
international exposition of 1900.
All rumors to the contrary, nothing was raid about the Panama
Canal. The visit, however, was
wrapped in the deepest mystery,
the French authorities fearing it
might be connected iu some way
with Mr. Morgan's financial scheme.
The interview lasted ouly a few
minutes.

CONSCRIPTION.
Statement by   English  Under Secretary for War Last Night,
London, May 22,—An ominious
statement on the question of conscription was made by Lord Raglan last night. Speaking at the
united service club, he said that
Englishmen must not be frightened
at the idea of conscription. There
were only two ends of getting mon
for tho army. They could pay
them and make their lot comfortable, or they could press them.
It is interesting to note that the
militia ballot has just been put into
operation in Guernsey to strengthen
the lecal militia, Guernsey is the
only portion of the British empire
where conscription is in force.
