Portsmouth, N. H„ Aug. 29—Peace between Russia and Japan was practically concluded at this mornin-j's session
of the Conference. , For ihe sake of peace the Japanese with a magnanimity worthy of their heroic achievements in the
war, met lhe ultimatum of tlie Czar and abandoned their demands not only for re-imbursement for the cost of the war
but for the re.purclinse.of the Northern half bf Sahklin;> Russia at the same lime agreeing to the division ofthe Island.
The Japanese also withdrew articles 10 and.. 11 ofthe Peace Conditions originally proposed :—(demand for the„ sui render,
of the interned warships and limitation of the Russian.-Naval "power in llie Far E.ist) The delegates,of the respective
missions were called on at tlie afternoon session and'the actual work of formulating the treaty of Peace began. An
arnistice probably will be arranged at once. The news'that peace had been agreed upon caused the most. intense excit-
ment at the hotel where the convoys hnve.heen'sutiohecl.' Everywhere there was a deliiium of jubilation.. A scene of
'the greate'st excitement'followed the'receiptof the news "in the lobby of the Hotel Wentworth. -The peace-bulletin was
telephoned-to tlie Conference room at the'Navy Yarduby Mr. Sato and like an electric thrill flooded through the room.
There were screams of joy. Men threw their hats alofi, want actually wild,'then there was a rush for the telegraph
office and in an instant the news was spreading to the remotest corners of the earth. '      -
M. Wilte accompanied bytBaron de Rosen came to the hotel for luncheon.     There was a wonderful demonstration
upon theirarrivAl. - . -'.   ' •"    * '- ,"*■•*     ' ,

' The rumor is circulated that'there is some sort' of secret understanding behind the'peace treaty. ' The two plenipotentiaries have respectively proposed to their Emperors the conclusionof an immediate armistice. °
,. M. Witte in an interview said :., It seems increJitabfe.,.' I" do not believe any other man in my place would have
dared to hope for the possiblity of.peace on the conditions to which we have just agreed.' From all sides, from President
Roosevelt down to my own friends in Russia I received up to.the last moment this morning urgent representations that
something should be paid to Japan. * Not only.ive do not pay so much asa kopeck, but we obtain half ofSahklin, now in
their hands., Atthis mornings meeting,I presented my written proposition which was the Russian ultimatum. .It was
iL'cepied by the Japanese.'- Iwas^amazed and until I was in the conference room I did not think what would happen.
I did not anticipate such a great and happy issue.77-7,.-        ;    -'. - • k

. • The people of Fernie ; are not much
alarmed about prolonged strikes and
consequent stagnation of business.
Recent events strengthen them' in the
opinion that there is very little likelihood of serious 'trouble between employers and employees in the great
coal and coke, industry which contributes so largely to the welfare of this
part of the province.
Building is going on just, as if no
strike had been declared. While the
miners were thronging the streets during the few davs they we're off duty,1"
the' owners of the lots from which the
buildings had so lately been swept by
the relentless nre fiend were redoubling their efforts to replace them, with
much belter and larger structures.
The sound of the hammer , and the
clink of the trowel never ceased. The
only possible,check of the progress of
building operations was the inability of
the city government to keep out of the
way of the-ae enterprising builders with
their grade regulations. Instead, of
sitting down and waiting for the city to
Ull him how high .or how low he
should4'place his-,floors,,inv-.his new
.building.^Mr." ".Henderson" established
his-'owri grade and went orTwilh his
work; We haven't arty doubt but that
'he .city will come along some of these
lays and-establish their, grade in conformity with that adopted by Mr.
Henderson. The days of doubt ns to
the future of. Fernie have past.' The
probability of serious difficulty arising
between the Coal Co. and their men
grows less every day, And when wc
have a cily council sufficiently wiso to
obey the advice of the city instead of
that of people who are trying to fasten
upon us a monopoly of the water supply
at figures that would compel us to pay
into the pockets of noil resident people
$75,000 to 8100,000 In profits during
thc next ten years, we shall have laid
the foundation of the most- prosperous
city in eastern British Columbia.

Outburst, Spokane;    -' *
It is generally understood that the
Grand Jurv has been  partially occupied'during the week in an-investi-
gatlon of the charges ot persecution
and protection meted oat to immoral
women on Front street by the police
department. 'The matter should lie
sifted to the bottom; it is one ot the
foulest biota upon our civic life.   The
Odthurstdoes not believe that any
city which levies tribute upon th.e
degrading arid disgusting   human 1
traffic, can lay claim tothe condition I
of higher civilization, whether such
tribute be collected officially .in the
name ofthe ctty, by human . ghouls
in its, employ' who blackmail the
hunted creatures by virtue of their
paltry official positions, or by private
citizens whousc the cloak ot moral
crusaders in their attempts to extort
illegal gain.':   "     • '*
In this connection it will be remembered . that an agitation was
started las'; summer with the osten-.
slblo object-'of driving immortil
women 'from Front3 street. Tiie
agitation was Btarted by A. A. Rratt,
of tho Kraft Harness Company, and,
as a result, Mayor Boyd served notice
that ail houses of prostitution in the
neighborhood should be closed within sixty days.-About the time this
period expired, owners of property
used for immoral purposes and the
prostitutes themselves were notified
that the agitation.would be stopped
upon payment of SflOOO to Mr. Kraft
and $300 to a very prominent law
firm which had acted as Kraft's legal
adviser.   -
The property ho'dere got together
as a result of the intimation, and the
money was subscribed jointly by
them and the immoral women most
interested. Tlie negotiations were
conducted by Archie Ash. on behalf
oi the property holders arid prostitutes
and by tlte aforesaid law firm on behalf of Kraft.    -
In order to cover up the transaction
and avoid future disclosures, it was
decidetl-that Ash should take an 6p;
tion on a block of the capital stock of
the A. A. Kraft Co. at par/puvjng
down the Bum ot $1000, the balance
being payable at a future date.
This arrangement was carried out,
and it isneedless to say that Ash did
not exercise hiVoption.  "
The property holders and immoral
women had been led to believe that

Cslttry Tt*tm]A,
A very general cry of fnko has
been raised ovor tho Fernlo-Ohlfjary
ball irame, A well known business
roan came into tho Horold ofiice today and declared that the scandal
over the baseball lake of tho rooont
tonrnamont has spread over tho north
and aouth country until ovory other
person he mot was dcnounclm? Cal*
gary for tho homo of crooked sport.
Ho declared his readlnois to contribute a share of tho expense of holding
the proposod investigation. Ho do*
clarcd his conviction that If any city
official was gollty of participation in
a plot to okeat by means of a' fixed"
game, ho should bo instantly discharged. The gentleman said there
was a growing feeling tbat the
criminal law against cheating by this
kind nf jobbery should be invoked, ,
Ho pointed out tbat a number, of

that something was wrong. Tho

sum ot $1300 they expected that the
agitation would cease.,; But on the
day following the settlement, B. B.
Dempsie started the second aglt.itlon
whlch-is still being carried on.
In making these assertions, the
Outburst realizes that, it is. making
serious charges; but.it wlll 'substantiate every..statement it has made
when the occasion arises. It believes
that such a transaction is one that
should bo sifted to the bottom by the
Grand "Jury. '• Tho prostitute upon
whom blackmail is lovied is pure as
an angel compared to the cowardly
blackguard who extorts it, whether
he be dressed ln overalls, or in the

hnvo found In tho course of your
labors, that tho charges so fur made

•  Crows Nest mountain, the" f,*imous
""peak of th's southern country,  was.

• the honor of baing-'the- first party of
amateurs to liave ever'accomplished

" who'reached the summit two years

'   noted VV. Wliymper; and forestalled

famed mountain/   prher.riw'uhtaijis

that have "such dangerous surround
it-igs, arid   hitherto  all,.attempts  to
.ficale'the hill by amateurs have been
The party making the ascent last
> Sunday was comprised of K.- Wliim-
" ater, Frank-*\P, D. McTavish, Calgary; D. G. Himower, Lethbridge;
and D.L. Stauffuv.Coleman; , They
.' had been preparing for the trip for
some time and went  fully equipped
„ having axes, topes, provisions; water
bottles, camera, etc., along with
them.   .'
, A start was made from Coleman at
3 a. m. - Sunday,0 "the men taking
horses from there to an pid logging
camp of the McLaren' Co.,1 about Ave
miles north of Pawls' ranch, close up
■to the foot of the mountain.  This wiis
1 the/route traveled by the Wliymper
party two' years ago. There' the
horses were lelt and the men followed
..the  .Whymper^ blaze, through the
1 'bush till it was lost, when they struck
outfor themselves, traveling tour, or
five miles before the edge of the timber line was reach-id'7 This was ,accomplished and the base of the maiu
hill reached, at its:-southwest corner
'  at 8.30 o'clock.'
The real climbing then commenced
tlie party gradually working around
"/•ou.the shale slides to the •■ northwest
' "corner ot the hill.   There they "struck
.   a narrow ravine or crevice running
.,up the'mountain -for- some' distance
and in it"was a glacier.   An attempt
was made to  ascend .the, precipitous
wall, but alter going up 200 ieet the
„ men found .their   progress. blocked
and they - were  forced  to' descend.
-Going about halt way up the crevice
they again attempted the precipice
op the north side and after, a hard
struggle succeeded. For 500 feet it
was almost straight up, footholds being had on narrow,ledges and knobs
of rock. . Mr. Whimster was in the.
lead-and the others followed as"closely as possible, ropes being -'used
several,times. "Onceor twice members of the party became faint and
had to be field up hy the; ropes, for
a-slip would have meant a horrible
death.    - ■   '"
"■ Alter scaling the precipice, which
was the most perilous part of the
whole climb, a series bf shiile slides
'and short cliffs. were met. with for
several hundred feet. \.- Thenco;'the.
men worked northwards "along the^
incline finally hitting the base of tlie
con*, on tho.north slope.- Then for
half a mile it was a stiff and dangerous climb until - the summit was
reached at 12.15 o'clock.a There the
party found a : stone cairn built bv
the Swiss guides two, years ago, an
empty Dewar whiskey bottle, and a
red flag. The climbers erected another cairn close bj and carved their
names on top. They also wrote their
names on a paper and left the slip in
the bottle/ Besides this they, stretched a cord between the two cairns and
tied to ic a ,white handkerchief, which
may still be seen floating on the summit. _ As a memento-of their trip the
men brought down the Swis9 fliig and
a number.of photos they hud talien
of the marvellous views to be hadjup
there. '*, They state the .panorama
from the top ot the Crow is one of surpassing beauty, everything being
disccrniible for miles'in all directions.
The descent. commenced at 2.15
p in. and was negotiated in safety,
McLaren's camp being, reached ,at
6.30 and Coleman at'. 8 30.;':. The
Crow's N^est'-is 9,800 feet liigh arid the
sides aro a succession of steep precipices and shale slides, cohstituting-
a/dahgorous' and difficult piece of
work,to scale.' The weather for the
trip was perfect 'and, the atmosphere
clear, with a cold breeze on the summit. , The ascent and descent were'
made without accident of any kind,
tlie men being careful, to blaze their
route wherever possible. They feel
highly elated' at their success and
state their reward has been  ample.
The honor ot being the first amateurs
tb make the ascejit was great, while
the- views obtained are.interesting
and valuable. S-
, Other parties have been stirred up
since to make the ascent and it is
quite probable that the attempt will
be made while the weather is good.

The Lndjr of Lyons
Miss Maragret Neville, the celebrated English actress and a most effective* cast will present at Stork's
Opera House, Thursday, September
14th. Sir Edwin Lyt'ton Bulwer's
romantic play, "The Lady of Lyons"
Though very beautiful in many respects, the play is undoubtedly to some
extent faultly and forced in' construction, yet at the same time, thc quickness of action, telling points, and
beauty of language, rivet and'please
an audience and push aside any imperfections. . '.        -
The most glowing econiums possible
were passed upon Lord Lytton in every
circle, when his name became associated with the authorship of 'The Lady
of Lyons," at the Same time "Black-
Woods Magazine" said of him: .-.
