SEVERE   CRITICISM
British Public Far From Satisfied With
Lord Lansdowne's Entry Into the
Foreign Office.
London, Nov. 3.��� "Clad iu tlio robes
of dazzling failure" 18 tho way one
Liberal newspaper describes the Marquis of Lansdowne's on try into tbe
foreign oflice. This, undoubtedly expresses the opinion of a preponderance
of the British public, irrespective of
patty lines. Kven among these organs feebly upholding the advisability
of Lord Lansdowne's appointment
there is a tendency to allocate him to
the position of a mere nominal head
of the foreign oflice, blindly following
out every wish of the Premier, This,
the Associated Press learns is quite
opposed to Lord Salisbury's own idea.
lie does not share the general belief
that in the war office he did badly.
In fact, the Premier is so convinced
of the reverse that ho gave Lord Lans-
downe the option of continuing in
his former oflice or taking the new
billet. Lord Salisbury was delighted
that Lord l.ansdowne was willing to
accept the foreign oflice portfolio, lie
believes he will make a strong for
eign secretary and had long contemplated Lord l.ansdowne as his successor should the doctors refuso to allow
him to continue the severe duties he
undertook during the last I-lriament.
One of Lord Salisbury's closest friends
said to a representative of the Associated Press:
"Lord l.ansdowne, by his training
and social career, is more fitted and
available to meet diplomats and decide
large issues. Should ho fail of sue-
l<ss it will only be because ho is too
lunch of a gentleman."
With reference to liish matters, an
amusing Btory is going the rounds j
about the Duke of Marlborough,whom
the papers frequently witliout basis
mentioned as Earl Cadogan's successor
in the Lord Lieutenancy of Ireland.
On the strength of  this, it   is  said, a
large amount of Irish literature has
been imported to Blenheim, where a
recent visitor is alleged to have found
the young Duke almost buried amidst
stories of Ireland. How bitter polities are growing in Ireland can be
judged from an open letter from Mr.
Will. O'Brien saying ho re-enters Parliament with the utmost repugnance
and with no more satisfaction than he
would enter an English jail. But Mr.
O'Brien adds, he considers it a national duty. He also says the exclusion of Ilealy and his faction from the
Irish party is the only means of enab
ling men of honor to remain in it.
The Prince of Wales' dismissal of
Toil Sloan is received with joy by the
racing world of England as a significant indication of feeling against
American jockeys and trainers. Tho
Prince of Wales yielded to the popular clamor, while the methods and
manners of a number of self advertising American owners have undoubtedly given the .Jockey Club an excuse for
its present attitude. Sloan is much
chagrined, liis retainer was to have
been ��5,000. He had other offers of
like amount, but now tho Prince of
Wales has thrown him over, no English owner is likely to employ him as
first jockey. Sloan roturns to tho
United States, November 14, but the
atory that he does not intend to apply
for a liconse hero in tool, is regarded
as being at least premature. Leigh,
the trainer of Mr. Frank Gardner's
stable, which Sloan manages, and
whose application for a license to
train at Newmarket caused so much of
the present trouble, has secured quarters at Epsom. Rtgby will not apply
for a license for 1001, as he is engaged
by Madame Memier to ride in France.
Morgan, Edie and .lone- go to Austria.

LEE'S HOME COMING.
Nothing Yet Done to Provide a Public
Reception For Him.
Private A. S. Lee, ono of Nelson's
quota of volunteers for service in
South Africa, is on his way westward. So far as The Miner can learn
nothing lias yet been done toward
ten ..ring him a public reception.
Elsewhere in Canada the returning
veterans are being received with open
anus. Nelson should do likewise.
Some one should take hold of the matter, raise enough money by popular
subscription to defray what slight
expense there will be and arrange a
programme, The Miner would suggest
that T.Q.Procter, Arthur Sherwood or
some otner equally energetic person
take hold of the a flair.
TROUBLE
Misunderstanding In Connection With Chapleau
Mining Co.
Quebec, Nov. 3.���About 10 o'clock
this morning as the procession con
ducting tho returning soldiers was
ascending the hill, a gallery In the
rear of the Chicn Duex D'Or Hotel, on
whieh somo :.'(> people wero standing,
gave way, precipitating all to the
ground, a distanco of 2"> feet. The
Injured are: Ueo. Adams, a waiter,
spine broken; Miss McCauslamland
Frederick Letournea, barkeeper, broken logs; old widow named Coulonb,
skull fractured. The accident was
due to too many on tho gallery which
was docayed, and the weight of tho
people was too great for It.
Toronto, Nov. :i���Torontoians are
making extensive preparations to give
her returning heroes from South Africa a welcome   never to bo forgotten.
Cancellation of   His   Prince of   Wales
Engagement.
New York. Nov. 8.���Tod Sloan's
temper is seriously ruffled by tho loss
of his engagement with the Prince of
Wales, says a London dispatch to The
World.
"Have you been notified that you
will not be retained by the Prince of
Wales?" tho jockey was asked.
"No, but I guess it's true all the
same," was Sloan's reply. "The feeling that has been stirred up against
American jockeys here by some of the
swells and sporting papers is tho
worst l ever knew. The Prince could,
not stand against it, I suppose, and
I say nothing against him."
"Do you intend to give up racing
hero?"
"I don't Intend to do anything of
the kind. 1 have still as many offers
to lido from the best owners as I
want. I ride fair, do my best eveiy
time and am not beaten. You can tell
them that in New York."
Marsh, tho Princo of Wales' trainer,
furnished the information before It
was communicated to Sloan and the
Prince, it is said, has rebuked him
for it. Despite Sloan's confidence in
himself this cancelling of the Prince
of Wales' engagement iB considered
the worst blow he has every received,
as other owners will surely follow
suit.
Mr. F, Mourgues and two directors
of the Chapleau Mining Co., were refused admittance to the property of
the company yesterday under instrue
tions of Mr. .1. Malliuson Williams,
manager for the Chapleau Mining Co.,
in British Columbia.
About a week ago Mr. Williams received from t.10 managing director of
the company in Paris a letter stating
that a Mr. F.Mourgues, a French mining engineer, was being sent to British Columbia to look at the Silver
Plate and Exchange claims under
bond to the writer of the letter and
some associates. Mr. Williams was
informed that M.Mourgues would present a letter of introduction to him
and was atked to do all he could for
him. This Mr. Williams wiu prepared to do and has awaited   the   coming
of M. Mourgues.   That gentleman ar
rived but much to, Mr. Williams sitr
pirse did not present the letter of introduction. Instead, ho, or some one
connected witli him. caused to be inserted in the columns of The Tribune
a Statement to the effect that Mr. Williams hail been relieved of the management of the Chapleau mine. This
was somewhat of a surpiise to Mr.
Williams, lie had, however,the satisfaction of knowing that the statement
was untrue.
Some time ago Mr. Williams fractured a leg and since that time his
brother, ,1. W. Williams, has been in
charge of the mine, lie is under in
structions to allow no trespassers ou
the property, and when Mr. Honrgues
and tho two directors called at tbe
property yesterday they wero refused
admittance. They threatened to secure an Injunction and departed.
This is how the matter stands lit the
present time. Further development!
aro expected in a few days.

DISPATCHES
Copies of Those Passing Be
tween Lord Roberts
and Col, Otter,
Are in Connection With the
Return of Canadian
Volunteers.
The Miner is tlie first paper in the
Dominion of Canada to publish exact
copies of the correspondence between
Colonel Otter and Lord Roberts in regard to the departure of a portion of
the H. ('. R, from South Africa. The
inform:.tion conies in a letter from
Mr. \V. J. (1. Dickson t.�� Mr. K. IM.
Maedonald,    Mr. Dickson says:
I will try to fully explain the circumstance connected with the dividing1 of the regiment, and why some
eompanies havo yune home and why
we remain. When we went with Gen*
eral Hart's Brigade, Colonel Otter informed the regiment that he had some
time previously written to the Canadian military authorities that hy tlie
terms of our eon tract of enlistment
we had to be landed in Canada hy the
15th of October, 1900, and discharged
by that date. That he had also informed Oeneral Roberts to the same
effect and that he hoped that we
would be. While here on the nth
Inst.Colonel Otter received the following telegram from Lord Roberts.
"From Lord Roberts, Belfast,
(Transvaal) to Colonel Otter, Royal
Canadian Regiment, lirst e r'abriken,
7th September. I trust that as many
us possible of the Royal Canadians
will prolong their service until the
end of the war. Tin \ bave performed sueh gallant serviee that it would
be a great pity for any of them to
leave now that the end seems si. near.
Acknowledge.    (Sgd.)    Roberts.1'
To this an answer was sent the
tame day by Colonel otter.after a consultation with his ollieers at battalion
headquarters, as follows:
"Krom 1.ieut.-Col. Otter, Commanding R, 0. R., ESrste ETabriken, to l.ord
Roberts, Belfast:   Reply  to yours of
yesterday. Your wishes will he gladly complied with. Would ask p6l mission for one or two officers and a few
men, whose cases are urgent, to return home at once."
On the Uth instant the following
was received by Col. Otter:
"From Lord Roberts, Belfast, to
Col. Oter, Erste Fabriken: Many
thanks for your satisfactory reply.
Ky all means give leave to one or two
ollieers and a few men whose cases
are urgent to return   at onee.     I Sgd.)
Roberts."
The Colonel thought that   after    the
request of Lord Roberts  the regiment
would he willing to remain and so did
the officers commanding.   There was.
however, some dissatisfaction in the
regiment because so many of the men
wished to go home, and also because
some of them thought the colonel
should have consulted the opinions of
the men themselves as well as those
of the ollieers. Then tlie ollieers commanding eompanies were instructed
to report what their companies
thought about the matter. The result
being that "A" and "If Companies
wore willing almost to a man to stay,
while the other companies almost to
a man wanted to go home. Thu Colonel therefore sent the following telegram:
"From Lieut.���Col. otter, R, C, I;..
to i.old Roberts, Commander _n*Chief,
al  Maehoiloip:    Keferring   to yOUrfl of
the .lb inM,,   I regret   to Inform vou
that, owing to a fear of los* of Bra-
|i)nvinriil or b'USfnew, the great majority of men ami ollieers   of the It. C.
ii. feel that they cannot with  justice
to   themselves   or   families   rc-engnge
for further service   in   this   a .try.
They dcsiri* their uir-clwin- ��� '-nada
on October l.-th m\t, in ftcoortlttfl i
with terms of their eonlraet, und 1
must therefore, ask that such inavbe
done,     i Sgd. ) Otter."
The following telegiam was received, in answer to the above, by Col.
Otter, from Lord Roberta.
"From   l.ord Roberts,   Machodorp,
to Lieut.-Col. Otter, Commanding 6.
i.j... Erste Fabrlken{ 0, 4698 [13th
Sept.) I much regret the decision
which the ollieers and men of tbe Royal Canadian Regiment have come to.
It is Unlikely that their services
would be required much longer and
their going  away  now  win  prevent
them taking any pari in the annexation eerenionv I bopc to bold in Pretoria, and being present Bt the parade
I understand Her Majesty contemplates honoring by her presence on
the return of the troops that have
been taking part iu this war. If on
receipt of this you inform me that the
ollieers and men '���till wish to return
to Cunudtt the   DOoMM!? transport ar
rangements will be made. (Sgd.) Roberts."
The ollieers commanding companies
were again instructed to lind out the
fecling\jf the men and    report to    the
commanding officer, as soon as possible, with the result I have already
mentioned, namely that "A" aid
"11" Companies, agreed to stay, with
a few men from tbe other companies.
Coal.[Otter therefore, telegraphed the
following to Lord Roberts, after receiving the report from tho ollieers:
"About 300 non-commissioned ollieers and men of the 11. C. R., with
proportion of ollieers under my own
command, will gladl> prolong service
until end of war. The remainder regret that for reasons already stated
they must ask for return to^Camuia in
shortest time.possible.''
To this the following answer was
received by Col. Otter from Lord Roberts:
"Your telegram of 18th. I am very
glad that 300 of tlie U. CJ. R. under
your command will continue serving
until end of war. Early arrangements
will be made for dispatching those
who have decided to return to Canada.
Telegraph to 1). A. 0., Pretoria, full
particulars and numbers by ranks of
those   returning.     (Sgd.)    Roberts. "
All of tho above telegrams nre exact copies of the messages exchanged
between Lord Roberts and Colonel Otter ro tlie above, having been copied
by me from regimental orders and are
correct. I am glad for one that I remain ami 1 may say that all the 11. C.
men were willing to stay, except one.
All the Kootenay men at the front
stay. I see that Hilly Patterson got a
commission in the Knst Lancashire
regiment at home ami is at home
now, so 1 don't suppose wo will see
him again in Nelson, ('apt. Hodgins
and Lee are still at liramfontein, 1 believe, so I am the only Nelson man
here.
ROBERTA   APPEAL.
Asks   That    Welcome   to   Soldiers lie
Not Turned to Drunken Orgies.
London, Nov. 3, ��� Lord Roberts sends
from Pretoria a striking appeal to his
countrymen to refrain from turning
the welcome of the home-coming of
the troops into a drunken orgie. lie
expresses tho sincere hope that the
welcome will not take tbe form of
treating to stimulants and "thus lead
to excesses that will tend to degrade
these whom the nation delights to
honor ami not lowei the soldiers of
the Queen in the eyes of the world,
whieh has watched with undisguised
admiration the grand work they have
performed for their sovereign ami
country." He says: |- am very
proud to bo able to record with the
most absolute truth that the conduct
of this army from the lirst to last has
been excmpl iry. Not a single case of
serious crime has been brought to my
notice, indeed nothing deserving the
name of crime. I have trusted to tin*
men's own feelings and good Sense
ami they have borne themselves like
heroes on tin? battlefield, and like the
gentlemen they are on other OCOO
sions." Lord Roberts explains that
he thus appeals because of the distressing and discreditable scenes resulting from InjudlcoUB friends speeding
tbe parting soldiers by shoving bottles of spirits into their hands and
pockets.

Pat Burns Secures Control of One of the
Richest   Copper   Mines  on  the
American Continent.
Somo years ago when Patrick Burns I
was just beginning to gain his rcpu- |
tat Ion as thu "Cattle King of the
West" he assisted a young Knglish
mining expert and engineer who was!
iu financial or other difficulties. The
young man was grateful and always
made it a point to keep in touch with
Mr. Bums in the hope that some day
he might be able to repay him for the
favor shown. Hut as time went on
the Englishman drifted to other parts
and for a few years Mr. Burns heard
nothing of him. Less than a year
ago, however, a letter came from this
mining engineer. He had loeated in
Mexico aud said e had discovered
some very rich copper deposts. lie
had uot the funds to develop the prop
eity and he was anxious that Mr.
Burns should take hold of it, because,
as he expressed it, there was millions
in it. Mr. Burns had enough faith
in his friend to send a man down to
look at the property. This man eaine
back with a confirmation of the report
of the Englishman. Then Mr. Hums
Consulted with M . Itruee White, of
Nelson, and the conference resulteri
in Mr. White's departure for Mexico.
When Mr. White left Nelson ho did
not say where he was going and so far
as the newspapers were concerned
thoy never knew until now. Mr.
White went directly to the property
and examined it. Everyone who
kuows Bruce White knows him to be
one of the most coiirvrvative mining
men iu Hritish Columbia and when hi
came back and told  liis associate. Mr.
Burns, that the Mexico   property was
a wonder, Mr. Hums was sure the Englishman   had   not    overestimate!     bis
tind.  When a man gets bold of a good
thing   he   usually    likes to see   it for
himself, and so Mr.  Burns   decided to
pay a visit to Mexico.     He did so and
has only recently returned,   lle didn't
go to confirm Mr. White's report,   for
he knew that was   right   and he came
back just as   enthusiastie ns the Kng-
lishmau   himself,    'ibe   several   visits
resulted in Mr. Hums taking   hold   of
the property, or in other words securing the controlling interest, it is said
to be a   veritable mountain of   copper
and to be one   of   the largest deposits
of   copper     on   the    continent.      Tne
property is within a   few miles of the
sea. whieh renders the   transportation
of tbe ore easy.     Steam   wagons carry
the output of the   mines to   the water
where it   is   loaded on   steamers   and
carried tothe nearest smelter. Already
there are over 200 men at work on tlio
property.    It is   reported     that     Mr.
Burns  was  offered two   millions  for
his interest, but   that   he   refused   t��j
sell.    Mr.  Burns   admits  that a   high
figure   was   offered   hi in,   but   he believes  that  when   the   property   bus
been fully developed it will command
a  greatly   increased   price sliould   be
then be inclined to sell.
It   is   understood    that   Mr.    Bruce
White is Interested with Mi. Burns In

theft and this one on a charge of conspiracy to defraud the company. The
scene during the arrest which took
place iu the early morning, was probably one of the most exciting ever

OPINION   BASKl) O.N  KXOVYI.
EDUK.
The Conservative managers in Ontario were fortunate enough a few
days ago to get their hands on Mr.
.lohn Lowles, a former member of the
Hritish Houso of Commons,and Induce
him to take interest enough in our
Canadian elections to make a speech
at Cornwall. In 1890, it will be remembered, Sir Wilfrid Laurier came
out flat-footed for Imperial preferential trade, and promised that if his
party were elected to power be would
send a deputation to London to urge
it upon the authorities there, lie was
successful at the elections, hut he did
not, send his deputation; he did not
even hold out for a unitual preference, but hastened to give the Colonial
ease away by offering the present jug
handled arrangement, His excuse
for dishonoring his own pledge has
been that it' fcvas useless to ask the
Hritish for a Canadian preference, as
the feeling in that country was unanimously and resolutely against any
such poliey. We purpose to allow
Mr. Lowles, an old Knglish Parliamentary hand, to reply to Sir Wilfrid
Laurier.
In this Cornwall speech he said that
"of his own personal experience he
knew that gicat changes were taking
place in tho industrial districts in
(Ireat llritain. Everything there was
ripe for Mutual Preferential Trade.
In the Colonies, Australia for instance,
the people wero asking what was the
Old Country going to give for the preference. That was a question the Colonies should ask, and he urged Canada
to join the demand on the Motherland. (Ireat llritain had a population
of forty million souls living on the
manufacturing industries, and could
not raise the food products, and there
was no better place to secure these
products. Canada could supply all the
wheat required, Australia the meat,
and South Africa could furnish their
own products, It was quite natural
that England should give a preference
to the raw materials of the Colonics.
and in return they would give a preference to England in manufactured
ai tides.
l'So long as the Colonies remained
as they were they would he exposed t"
severe competition from foreign countries with Colonial products. At the
present time Australia grew enough
.sugar to supply all persons in tile Colony, The Oerman system of subsidising steamship lines enabled Germany
to compete in tbe sale of sugar in
Australia itself. A mutual preference
would remedy all this  ami  stimulate
Australian trade. Everything was
now ripe for obtaining such a preference. "
Mr. Lowles continued: "In England, as here, there has been a great
change in public feeling dining the
last five years. I myself have- gone to
the heart of the cotton dislricis. lo
Lancashire, and the other Industrial
centres, and discussed this question of
preferential trade. In 1-'."'. I weul to
Australia to see what the feeling nl
these Colonies was, on this question.
Wc knew what lho feeling was in
Canada. Sir Charles Tuppor had told
us so often that we did nol have lo
come to Canada to find oul what the
feeling was. The lirst thing they asked me. when I got io Australia, was,
'What will the old Country give us
In exchange for preferential trade in
our market?' That Is the question "c
are .''ski.;' ourselves the question that
we want the Colonies themselves to
formulate, what will they give US (or
preferential trade in our markets, in
order to bring about this great I nil-
ed Empire preferential trade, ami ��������
have the right to ir-k for it." "Hritish statesmen," he added, 'were very
sensitive about touching the |uestion
of mutual preference, because it was
to a gicat degree a Colonial question
ami the Englishmen waited for the
Colonies to take up the question, In
this eonneetion he spoke the   Iiiind   o
Mr. Chamberlain, with whom he had
often oonverscd regarding prefor
ence.''
The coming Imperial policy, of far
greater importance than the open door
into  China,   Is  mutual    profereutlal
Says The Victoria Colonist: "The
great development of the gold-copper
mines of the Kootenay has come about
since the Laurier Oovernment has
come into power, and the production
of tlie silver lead mines has vastly increased. One might almost say that
Kootenay as a mining district had
only become known since 1890. The
people interested in mining have urged over and over again that steps
sliould be taken to remove certain
drawbacks under which metalliferous
mining is laboring by reason of the
6seal policy of the tlovernment. Absolutely nothing whatever lias been
done. The request lias been treated
A'ith indifference, not to say contempt. Resolutions have been passed
by boards of trade, milling conventions and other bodies. Petitions
have been circulated. Exhaustive articles have been printed. But It has
all been so much waste labor. The
Government has simply ignored the
whole matter."

It appears that some raining operators who became discouraged through
the business disturbance caused by tho
Eight-Hour law, and left the country,
have recently returned to it witll the
intention of engaging in further operations. They do this in spite of the
Eight-Hour law and in the face of a
double tax on mineral output. Will
nothing keep these bold, sanguine
speculators out of Hritish Columbia?
We suggest that the (lovernment pass
a Four-Hour taw and quadruple the
tax: perhaps that would accomplish
the purpose. For in the minds of a
certain class it would Seem to be regarded as in the highest degree desirable to strain the conditions of mining in this Province to the extreme
limit of profitable operation. That
wc have not yet reached the point of
driving out those we have is proof
that they can be made to stand further exactions.
The simple minded Times of Victoria quotes a list of orders given by
the Imperial Government and filled
In Canada dining the past year, as
evidence of the blessings derived from
the Laurier preference. It does not
appear to realise that every one of
them was an emergency order. The
goods were for use in South Africa,
were wanted in a hurry, and had to
be obtained regardless of cost. If our
contemporary can get access to the
records, it will ascertain that for
every dollar's worth of supplies ordered in Canada the I'nited States got
ten.    So much for the preference.
.Mr. Donley says that the I'nited
States should have one place for a citizen to vote for his principles and another to vote for his candidate. The
Laurier Liberals might lind it a convenience   if   they   were   similarly ac-
1 miniated.   The principles in which
they were educated io not always
harmonise with their candidate, and
there are twitches of conscience
among the thoughtful ones as they reflect that the latter gets all the votes.
The election in Yale-Cariboo has
been deferred, for the reason, it is alleged, that during the usual week between nomination and polling it
would he Impossible to cover the territory and distribute the ballots.
Thai is a good reason, Ho far as it applies io the polling; but why delay
the  illations,',' The two weeks necessary for ihe distribution of the bal
lots might us well be running now as
any other time.

Sir Thomas bus been trying to corner

is possessed of large means; but tho

who also are wealthy, and have large

with in this game, which, of course,
is being played in Chicago, the greatest pork and provision market in the
world, and not hero in New York or

TIIK  HANGING OF KING.
Society and the Murder of Davenport
Avenged.
Seattle. Nov. II.���A special to the
Scuttle Times from Dawson says:
Alexander King's body was cut
from the end of the hangman'8 rope,
in tbe prison yard, this morning und
placed in a box. ready to roturu to its
mother earth.
The murdered and murderer both
died violent deaths, only there is a
difference. One was murdered, tho
other executed and this is the twentieth century, when the Mosiac law is
not spoken of except as u relic of antiquity.
The killing of Davenport by King
wns one of those particularly atrocious and cold-blooded affairs which
startled communities once in a decade.
The murdered man   in   this  instance
wus wholly defenseless, unci completely ut the mercy of his slayer whose
sole excuse for his crime was that, to
use his own expression at the time.
"ho hud liumfoz/.lcd them long
enough."
While hung up on n sand liar on the
Yukon near the mouth of ihe White
-liver, en route from White Horse to
Dawson with u Boowload of goods of
which he was acting as pilot, Davenport made n short excursion in corn-
puny with one of tlie other liuncls. in
u cunoe, to useeituin the correct clinn-
ncl, and on liis return to the scow
and just before he got out of the
canoe. King leveled a ll-culiber Winchester rifle, und with the remark-:
"That he (Davenport) bud liiiinfo/./.led
them long enough." pulled the trigger and sent u hull Crashing through
the heart of his victim, sending him
before tlio bar of eternal justice without a minute's warning.    The intense

brutality of the man's nature was
shown when the body was removed
from the conoe to the seow, after being covered with a tarpaulin by some
members of the crew. King then desecrated the body by throwing it head
foremost down the pump hole of the
seow.
King's trial in the territorial court,
befoie Judge Craig and a jury, was
one of the most sensationally dramatic
ilTairs which ever occurred in any
court room, and Alexander King, as
in the first chapter of the story
which olosed with a scene in the prison yard this morning, was the principal actor.
Z During all the time of his imprisonment King remained impassive, giving no sign hy word or in his appearance, of any effect the anticipation
of his appoaohing end was having upon him. and notwithstanding the report of a recent interview with him in
which it wus stated he was breaking |
down King hits remained firm to the |
end. showing no signs of repentance
or even regret of his deed.
At two minutes   before S o'clock tho |
morning King   mounted   tho stairs to
the scaffold, his tread was us firm und
decided ns if   he   hud   been   walking
down tlio street a free man.
In accordance with an expressed
wish he was permitted to wear tlie
clothes which he has worn dining
confinement, which consisted of mocu-
sins, blue jeans and a blue shirt
much tlie worse for wear. His arms
were securely strapped behind him he-
low the elbows, then ns he stepped
toward the center of tho platform he
turned his head to one side and looking meditatively und soiuownat curiously at tho rope und beam, said: as
if speaking of somo trivial mutter,
"I guess that rope will do me the
rest of my lifu." The noose'being
fitted und the black cap adjusted the
executioner shot buck the lever und
the trap opening In the center the
body shot downward to the end of the
rope und it needed no medical certificate to convey the information thut
Alexander King hud paid the penalty
of his crime.
Society and tlie death of Herbert
Davenport had been avenged, the outraged law had been appeased und
blindfolded justice hntl been sutislied.
THAT   AIRSHIP.
Count Von Zoppclin Claims to Have it
I _der Perfect Control.
Now York. Nov. 3.���Count von Zeppelin is satisfied with the performance
of his airship, suys a Herald cablegram from Friederchafon. He says it
has been proved that it wus uhsolutcly
under the control of the steering apparatus. This apparatus, howevor,
wub not in most perfect order on the
first ascent. One of the two rudders
below the machine at the stern would
not work freely. Thus instead of
moving parallel with each other, the
rudders frequently formed an angle.
This defect hampered Count Von Zeppelin very much indeed. Opinion in
general is somewhat unsettled.
The decisive trial has not yet been
made, for the machine is -till in experimental stage, though an undoubted step toward the achievement of
aerial flight has been made. A former
nautical engineer of Oeneva who is
Watching* tho trial, tciventiaal .by
name, expressed himself as being dubious of the machine's ultimate success.
^"Theprimo condition of a nuvigable
airship." he said, "is that it must be
able to go windwurd. This was not
done in the presont trial; at any rate
not conclusively nor do I think it can
be done.''
The technical observations noted
during the trial trip and other instructive details will not be available
for several days yet and until they
are known it is impossible to do more
than register Count Von Zeppelin's
summing up of the trial:
"It proved that my airship is absolutely under my control."

After the completion of this work- the
city workman will he engaged in laying a sidewalk on  Latimer Street.
The new turntable at the C, P. R.
yards was used for the lirst time this
morning and everything worked with
the best of satisfaction. Krom now on
it will be used and this will do away
with the use of the "Y" which is
now being torn away. The roundhouse is not completed owing to the
delay in receiving material. When
the material arrives, only a week will
be required to complete   the building.
The grading of the line between

till ten o'clock refreshments were
served. A large crowd was in attendance aud thoroughly enjoyed the informal programme Interspersed with
games.
A (ireenwood dispatch says: In connection with the trial of Waterland
vs.Greenwood,it appears that city Engineer Alston, who was subpoenaed
and left lucre with other witnesses,
went as far as Kossland. but failed to
put in an appearance, thereby losing
to the city his evidence. At the council meeting last night a deputy sheriff
served a garnishee on the city f,u-
8950 in an action brought by the .ale-
Columbia Lumber Company against
Waterland.
Fred W. Grant, the well-known
printer of (irand Forks.who has a host
of friends in Kossland, Nelson and the
Boundary country, says the Kossland
Miner, wishes it to be thoroughly understood that he is not the individual
who. under that name, was mentioned
in Tuesday's Miner as having been
lined 820 for gambling in Kossland.
He thinks it was a ease of "mis-deal"
and asks that the .matter be explained
and set right, which we are sure this
item will accomplish. The former is
still traveling in the stiaight and narrow path whieh leads on to "30."

II. T. Ceperly, of Vancouver, It. ('..
was in the city yesterday, says the
Spokesman-Review,     Mr. Ceperly   is
one of the principal members of the
Mainland board of fire underwriters.
That body fixes tbe rates to lie paid
by people who want to be insured
against lire in companies which are
represented by agents who live on the
mainland Ol Hritish Columbia. (If
late years there has been complaint in
the Kootenay districts against some
of the rates established by the mainland board. The association recently
sent two experts iqi from the coast to
see what ground there was for the
complaints. On the advice of the
agents the board made little change
in the rates iu force, it befog considered that the risks warranted the
prices asked. .Mr. Ceperley's firm in
Vancouver represents a number of the
principal United States companies and
J\lr. Ccperley   is a constant visitor   to
=?==!=-
the Kootenay on  account of   the business which Is done there.

Win. Davitt, of Trail, one of the
best known ollieers of the Provincial

totia on Sunday after a stay of several
days here. Bays the Vancouver World.
Mr. Davitt will return to the interior
after a few days at the capital. He
brought three prisoners flown fcr the
Westminster penitentiary. Trail has
gone ahead icccntly by leaps and
hounds,' 'said Mr. Davitt, in conversation witli a World representative.
"A person who visited tne place a
few months ago would not know' it
now. Many new buildings have gone
iqi and Ihe business of tlie place has
Increased remarkably. The smelter is
doing very well. Under the management of Mr. Aldridge. a new stack is
being placed in the smelter and a very
large business is now being done
there. It is expected that the capacity of the plant will he well over "itio

NEWS OF THE MINES.
(ireenwood, Nov. .'). ���At a depth of
335 feet ore has been encountered in
tlie long tunnel on the Review mine,
in Myers Creek district. Information
was received here last night by telephone from Holster, and there is considerable rejoicing among the local
shareholders in the Review Gold Mining Company, who have waited patiently while the Ouo-foot tunnel was
being driven.
Thomas McDonnell, the largest individual shareholder In the company,
stated last night that the ore was encountered by a Bhort crosscut driven
south from the end of the long tunnel. The crosscut penetrated the footwall of the vein and continued on into several feet of bluish quartz. Of
live samplings of this ore the lowest
went a fraction ever S'iO and the highest 10 ounces in gold, or 812(1 per ton.
This is a most remarkable showing
for quartz at this depth. It means
also that the veins in that district go
down to depth and   carry   value also.
The Relvew will shortly ship ore to
Laidlaw's pyritio smelter and the
force will be largely increased. Seattle, Spokane and (ireenwood mining
men are interested in the success of
the property, which has so far handsomely realized the most sanguine expectations of the shareholders.
