Yokohama, Jan. 24, via Victoira,
Feb. 4.���There was innch expectation
here over the arrival of the Shinauo
Maru, a steamer belonging to the
Nippon Yusen Kaisha, from Seattle.
It was understood that she was bringing back F. S. Mayer, who is wanted
here on a charge of forgery. Mayei,
who is a Chicago man,, lived here
some years nnd married a beautiful
Eurasian girl by whom he bas two
children. He is a bright young fellow
and threw himself into several enterprises, amiiDg them being the business
managership of a foreign loual paper
and the secretaryship of a steam laundry company. Mayer lived at a gcod
pace, in the meantime speculating,and
circumstances led to the proprietor of
the local paper having the books ex-
pertod, when it was found that Mayer
had taken liberties with the funds in
his control to suoh an extent as to
render himself liable to penal servitude. Personal considerations, however, effected a compromise, Mayer
giving some collateral for his indebtedness and the newspaper proprietor
refraining trom prosecution. Then ii
was announced that Mayer was returning to Amerioan with his family
and;, they duly sailed. They had
hardly reaohed America, however,
when it was discovered that as secretary of tne laundry company, bo had
manipulated tho shares so as, it is
charged, to obtain some thousands of
dollars from the Russo Chinese bank.
The latter put the cable to work and
was soon informed that Mayer had
been arrested in Minneapolis whence
he would be brought back to Yokohama on the arrival of exiradition
papers. Iu some way the rumor became prevalent that he was on the
Shinano Maru, the boat which, after
starting on her last trip from Seattle,
put back with her cargo on fire. Thia
was not the only bit of bad luck on
ber voyage, for as she was Hearing
Yokohama sho ran aground in a neavy
fog on a sandy spit nud stuck fast,
being only got oft in 24 hours after
discharging her cargo into lighters.
In the meantime it wns nscertalnd
thnt F. S, Mnyer was not on board, so
thnt public expectation, mingled with
much sypmathy for the wifo and
family, is still on the alert.
J. H. Brooke, an Englishman, proprietor nnd formerly editor of the
Jnpan Herald, the oldest foreign
newspaper in Yokoliamn, Cied recently at the age of 07, of pneumonia
and organic complications. He was
foremost in fighting treaty revision
and always maintained thnt Japan
was not nullum enough to be trusted
with foreign interests. His vigorous
pen was quite a feature of foreign
Japanese journalism. The destinies
ot the Herald nre now in tbe capable
minds of E. J. Harrison, a young
Canadian,well known in Victoria and
San Francisco.
The British ship Brilliant, tho
largest ship carrying the largest oil
cargo, 17.1,000 cases, consigned to the
Standarl Oil Co.'s branch here raced
the Acme, another oil ship, from New
York to tbls port, nnd arrived here on
the 51st inst. The Brilliant left Now
York July 29th and the Aome on
August 1st, but the Acme bas not appeared within tbe two days margin,
no that the Brilliant claims the honors
of the long ocean race.
An unfortunate incident occurred
here in connection with the visit of
Jack Slavin, a middleweight pugilist
from Australia, who is well known
in the United States and South Africa.
Slavin gave an exhibition, one of bis
opponents being a colored man named
E. F. Padmore. This man put up a
very tamo light and tho sports present
wero inclined to resent the easy way
Slavin lot him off. Nu evil results
of his bout were apparent to bim
after the contest but about midnight,
however, Padmore, who was attached
to Ihe United States bosnital corps
hero, sent for Mr. Slyck, ol the hospital,   saying that  his feet ware Oold
and numb and that his left side in
tbe vicinity of the heart was causing
much uneasiness. Dr. Taylor,attaobed
to the hospital, promptly attended
the patient acoompanied by two other
physicians, but they were unable to
render any effectual assistance and he
died at 1.80 a. m. The tbree doctors
who also witnessed the fight, held a
postmortem examination and stated
that death was the resnlt of what is
popularly termed athletu's heart.
The affair created a sensation but no
blame is attached to Slavin. The
latter is to fight William Lucifer,
the strong man and contortionist, for
a purse of 8500 and the gate money,
next week. J. McAuliffe, anothei
Australian pugilist, who bas been
several months in Shanghai, writes
that he will shortly visit Yokohama,
when more boxing bouts will be in
order, en route for Snn Francisco.
Jack Slavin claims to be a brother of
Slavin who was once a claimant of
the heavyweight championship iu tlie
United States.

Details    of     Terrible     Disaster
Eighteen American Soldiers.
Victoria, Feb. 4.���Manila papers received by tlie Empress today have
particulars of the recent attack by
bolo men, on a ,company of the 9th
infantry, in Samar, Tihich resulted in
the death of seven, of the 18 attacked,
and the wounding of eight others,
five seriously.
The detachment from company "B"
was struggling through a thicket near
Dundap Pueblo when a large band of
bolo men rushed upon them, having
been awaiting in ambush. The band
of Americans were surrounded by bolo
men and a bloody hand to hand combat ensued. The detachment clubbed
their rifles and standing baok to back,
they swung them at the heads of the
enemy.
Several eventually managed to
bring thalr rifles into play and the
bolo men gradually fell away, leaving
the small force of Americans with but
lour of tbem unwounded. The bolo
men lost heavily. A detachment of
native soldiers, attracted by the sound
of the firing, hurried to the scene, but
arrived too late to take part In the
combat. It is bolicved that it was the
expected arrival of these reinforcements that caused the bolo men to retreat and saved the entire detachment
from annihilation.

With several companies operating |
the immense coal measures of the
Crow's Nest Pass in British Columbia
and Alberta, with enough coal there
to last a century, provided the entiro
North American continent demanded
it, the cry that there will be a shortage is too peurile to need oontrover
sion. The organs wiil, however, keep
it up, and hope to alarm the public
and the government to such an extent
that it will be able to secure for the C.
P.R.or un allied company the coal land
in the Crow's Nebt section whictt bas
been reserved by the government lor
the people. It has secured a monopoly
of everything tbat it could lay its
selfish hands on and it would now
like to obtain control of coal.

THE ORGANS HOWL.
As expected the Rossland Miner yes
terday contained the attack on the
Crow's Nest Southern railway and the
Crow'B Nest Coal company, which appeared in the Nelson Tribune of the
previous day. According to the
schedule of the former crusade the
same article should in turn be repro
duced iu the Vancouver Province, the
Trail Creek News and then in regular
rotation in tlie various organs that are
so strongly deovted to the interests
of the Canadian Pacifio railway
This article among ot er things
states that Paul Johnson, who is the
minager of the smelter at Greenwood,
is anxious to secure a reduction in the
price o! coke. This is very commendable in Mr. Johnson; Le is working
the interests of the company which he
represents and naturally desires to
operate the smelter as cheaply as pos-
Bible and to purchase his coke as well
bb the other supplies which he finds
necessary in operation of the plant for
as low a figure as he can. No sort
of fault can bu found with Mr. John
son for doing this. He should, however, be consistent and if he desires to
secure the coke for less than at present ne should ask the Canadian Pacific
railway company to give him a better
figure than tho very extoitionate one
which is charged by that corporation
for hauling eike from East Kootenay
to Greenwood. The prices charged by
the Crow's Nest Coal company for
coke and coal at Fernie are not large
when corapaied with the price of coal
and coke in the east and at the ooast
in Doth of which places the conditions
are more favoiable and the prices of
labor anil supplies cheaper than thoy
are in the Crow's Nest coal fields.
One reason tor the oxcessive cost of
Btipplies is tho exceedingly high
charges for baulago charged by the 0
P.R. for delivering them^to the several
coal companies operating in the pass.
If the railroad was satisfied to charge
a reasonable figure for the haulage of
supplies to this section, both from the
east and the west, it ia palpable that
the cost of the production of both coke
and coal would be considerably re
duced. If they would scale down the
haulage of coke aud coal to Nelson, to
Trail, to Grand Forks and to Green
wood the smelter men would be
enabled to secure fuel at a considerably lower figure than nt present.
It   is  as plain as a pikestaff, there
fore,   that   the   obtaining  of cheaper
fuel for the smelters lies,   entirely   it
the hands of the Canadian Pacifio rail
way nnd that Paul   Johnson   and   the
other smelter men should   petition the
officials     of   thnt   company   for    the
desired relief.      Doubtless,    if this  is
done tne price of crke may be reduced
a dollar or two lower than at present.
If ihe C. P. R. does not   reduce   the
price   of   haulage   it is very probable
that   Mr.    Hill    will when the Crow's
Nest line is   completed   to   Jennings.
Then the Grent Northern   can   delivor
coke, and coal at Nelson, Grand Forks
and   a   little   later on at Gieeuwood.
Tbo  Great   Northern   can   oven reach
Trail by   boat   from   Nortbport.   but

CHEMICAL FOODS.
One of the dreams of chemists has
been the extraction of foodstuffs for
mankind direct from the earth without the intervention of seed time and
harvest. The life sustaining materials
in foodstuffs are in tbe soil and in
the air but it takes the magic of vegetable life ��o make it fit for consumption by man and animal kind. If a
direct method of extraction could ,be
found there would be no more plowing, sowing, reaping or threshing.
In France experiments have been in
progress for a long time in the direction of chemical foods. Prof. Berths lot, who has a high opinion of the
value of chemical foods, recently experimented with them on six volunteers, four of whom were men and
two women. They were given no
othor food^but chemical pellets for a
period of three weeks. These pellets
contained combinations of carbon,
azote and hydrogiene. During tbe
period that they consumed the pellets
the volunteers showed no distress.
Three of them lost flesh, the weight of
two remained stationary and one
actually gained in weight. Taking
this experiment in connection with
the iact that horses have recently been
fattened on mashes of sawdust it
would seem that the way had boen
opened for experiments along similar
lines which may lead in the end to
the time when mankind will live
entirely on chemical foods instead of
animal and vegetable foods. The
scientist who finally perfects the dis
eovery of cheap chemical foods will
havo done more for mankind tlmn all
previous discoverers. ne will virtually have removed from man the prim
eval curse that he must oarn his liv
ing by the sweat of his brow, as witb
chemical food, cheap and plenty, no
ono will need to work very hard to
obtain a living.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
"Warlike Colonel Watterson advises that we occupy Canada when she
gets fractious," says tbe Milwaukee
Sentinel. "We tried it, Colonel, a
long, long time ago, when tbe popula
tions wero relatively the same. Our
school histories properly say very
little about what happened. Let us
not occupy ourselves with occupations; let us pray rather for our
young sister whenever she goes
astray."
The report of tho department of
Indian aaffirs for the year ending
Juno 30th has beeu issued. It shows
that for the year the Indian births
numbered 2,740 and deaths 2,240, bo
that the birth has exceeded the death
rate by 289. There was, as compared
with the provious twelve months, an
increase of 140 births, and a decrease
of !!17 deaths. Tho total Indian population is given as 00,527, which is a
gain of 517 over 1000.
Estimates of thu mineral production
of the United States, for the year
1H01 which have beon made by
the treasury bureau of statistics, reveal that it will exceed those of
th2 previous yesr. Not only are they
larger than for any other year, but nre
greater In nearly every case 'than that
of any other country. In pn1d, silver,
iron, steel, aud coal and in mineral
oil Ihe products of the United States
in 1��01 exceeded those of other
countries, except possibly copper, and
also beat any rccoid made in the
United States, in any previous year.
Tho estimates pleco the gold yield of
1��01 at 880,218,800, against $79,171,-
000 for tfce previous year, whieh was
the biggest yield of gold yet made up
to tbat time for tho United States.
The silver production of 1901 Is estimated 59,653,788 ounces, against 57,-
874,000 in 1900. The pig iron production is estimated at 15,MX),000 long
tons against 13,789,242 long tons in
1890. Thc coal production is estimated at 207,850,000 long tons ln
1901, against 240,905,917 long tuns in
1890. Of petroleum thc production Is
estimated at 2.772,000,000 gallons,
agaii.st 8,681,885,568 gallons in 1900,
which was the largest production up
to that date. Copper it is estimated
was produced to the extent of 2115.025
long tons oi about 5,000 less than in
1900. This is the only item oa the
list that showed a decrease.

derived from it. I was a slave, chained

saw your advertisement for the cure ot
tbis dreadful and tormenting disease, As

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful elfect of yonr Asthmnlene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for tho past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th strept, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmalene.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.

Nelson Expects Two Companies and
Soarcely Room Fur One Provided.
Militia men are pleased tbat tenders
have been oalled for the erection of a
drill hall in Nelsou to the extent that
it shows that the department is giving
attention to the matter, but the plans
that have been forwarded to the resident architect do not meet with approval. Tlio building will be altogether inadequate as to size, as it will
give no room for drilling ln squads
iisir for gun drill, in fact little oan be
none in it but the manual exercises.
The Nelson company iB 45 strong and
at the last inspection 40 turned out, or
practically eveiy man wbo was not
on leave outs'de tbe city. Some of
thc companies of the dlstlrot did not
appear for inspection at all and Col.
Holmes. D. 0. C, recommended that
one of these companies he removed to
Nelson. Wero this done and a suitable armory built the officers of the
local company state that it could be
filled np within four hours and that
two efficient companies could be maintained. So long as the drills looked
as if they were in earnest there would
be no difficulty in getting full attendance at drills an] a general interest in
the work, but'to put up snch a building as that indicted by the plans
would be a damper on the present
enthusiasm of the men. W. A. Galliher, the member for the riding, and
Col. Holmes have been very active in
the matter and the local men are confident that when Mr. Oallihor gets to
Ottawa, he will take the matter up
again and the required alterations
will be made to the plana. In addition it is pointed ont that the site
which had been selected for the drill
hall some time ago, is now within
the city fire limits and a building of
thc desoriptiou of that for whioh tho
plans have been sent would not be
permitted' on the site by tho city
authorities.

prizes aro offered and as there are
valuable trophies to be oompetr d for
the event will be such as will offer

BOY BUILDING
That Ib the Mission of Good Food
There is an abundance of proof that
food can be selected that will build up
a brain as well as body.
One case is that of a boy and the
description is given by his mother.
She says, "This particular son has
always had a delicate stomach, and
when he was an infant had cholera
infantum two or three s%isons in suc-
ession; He wns exceedingly hard to
raise, and was not well enough to go
to school when he became old
enough."
The mother says, "Finally we con
eluded to put him on drape-Nuts ex
clusively and seo what the food would
do for biro. We did, and to our great
astonishment our boy improved daily.
He is now hearty and getting along
in school unusually well. He still
depends upon Orope-Nuts for a goodly
share of his diet.
Whenever children are hungry at
bedtime it is always safe to let them
eat Crapo-Nuta and let them go to
heil. I came to know the value of
(Jrape-Nuts by using it myself, and
found that 1 was unusually well
nonrishod and gained, rapidly In
btrength.
Please do not use my name. By the
way, we abandoned coffee in our
finnly several years ago nnd have
always used I'ostnm since. Would as
soon have the floor barrel empty as be
out of I'ostum." Name ean bo given
by PcBtuuj Co., Battle Crock, Mich.

A considerable patch of open water
appeared through the ice on the lake
opposito shore will be difficult. J.
Buggins, who arrived in the city on
Monday with a carload of stock for
his ranch at Six-Mile point found
himself in an awkward predicament
as there was no way of getting the
animals and poultry across to the
other side, tbe ico not being strong
enough in places to risk driving them
over and yet too thick to get a tug
through. It is probable that iu a
conplo of days more there will be a
wide enough channel open foi tbe
steamers to come in again.
At a meeting of the members of St.
Savior's ohoir on Monday evening
sum important changes weie made in
tho organization. The ohoir was
formed into a guild to be known as
the St. Saviour's Choir Guild, with
the following officers; President, Rev.
F. H. Graham; vice-president, Mrs.
Goepel; seuretary, P. Jrickmay;
treasurer, Lawrence Smith; choirmaster, K. McDonald; organist, K. A.
Weir; assistant-organist, W. A.
Jowett. It was decided that the choir
should be attired iu suiplices as soon
as arrangements could be made, and
also that a number of boys should be
trained with the object of having a
boy choir in addition to tne present
one. Meetings of the guild will be
held once a month.
Dr. C. E. Doherty, who has been
superintendent of the Kootenay Lake
General hospital, will leave shortly

chief surgeon and Drs. Doherty and
i'i.rum will be assistants for tho
Crow's Nest company. Dr. Doherty
will leavo as soon as the hospital
yesterday, and it is probable tbat by
tomorrow communication with the
board can find a surgeon to fill tbe
place, Dr. Doherty during the period
he lias praoticed in Nelson has made
an enviable reputation for himself
as a surgoon and physician, and
besides has endeared himself to a
large circle of friends who will learn
of his intendeu departure with deep
regret.

FALLING HAIR STOPPED.
Baldness Cured liy Destroying tbe
Parasite derm That Causes It.
Baldness follows falling hair, falling hair follows dandruff; and dandruff is the result of a germ digging
its way into the scalp to the root of
tlie hair where it saps the vitality .of
tho nair. To destroy that germ is to
prevent as well as cure dandruff, falling huir, and, lastly, baldness. Thore
is only one preparation known to do
that, Newhro's Herpioide an entirely
now, scientific discovery. Wherever
It has bem tried it has proven wonderfully successful. It can't be otherwise because it utterly destroys tbe
dandruff germ. "Yon destroy the
cauEe, you remove the effect.''
Becauso an evening dress suit looks
smooth and glossy and has some clienp
silk trimmings, 'that's not saying its
good. The. proper cloth is an all
Botany wool, chevoit "special dve"
that looks soft and rich in artificial
light and the pants won't hag at the
knee. Our sort.���Tlio Wallace-Miller
