Eleventh  Year
Victoria Seafaring Men Consider the Design no
dor may possibly have sailed direct to
the Pitcairn islands which was her
ultimate point. She was provisioned
for four months when she left.
Diligent   Search   Finds   no
Trace   of   British
Victoria, Jan.21 ���Tho cruiser Phaeton is to onll at Astoria for further
orders from the admiral, after searching for traces of the missing Condor
along the Vancouver Island, Washington and Oregon coasts. If the Moana
now due brings no advices, the Phaeton will then proceed to Honolulu.
Capt. Simpson of thc survey ship
Egeria, now in command or this station, said today tbat in his opinion
the Connor had broken down, and
being a poor sailor she would not
make the speed of an ordinary sailing
vessel, if having to fall back entirely
on her canvas. Ue does not think that
the Condor has gone to the bottom,
and reasons so from the fact that sailing vessels have taken as long as forty
days in which to make the Jvoyage,
turning up ultimately without mishap.
The Condor could not carry a great
deal of coal. Tne Phaeton, which
has now gone in search of her, is capable of storing away about 1,100 tons
in her bunkers and the Condoi could
not And room for little more than a
fcurth of this amount. The Phaeton
is as fast as a mail steamer. On the
trial yesterday morning, her engineers
succeeded in getting 111.2 knots out of
her machinery. Her best performances were a little hotter than 18
knots per hour.
Other thin the naval officers, some
of whom aro also pessimistic, the im
pression prevails that the warship has
been lost. She is one of the typo of
small craft recently built by tbe
admiralty, in which service writers
arc showing defects She was a vessel
of the model of the lost sloop Wasp
whioh was lost as the Condor has
probably been. She left port and was
never heard of again.
The last hope held out for the safety
uf the missing boat's crew of the
wrecked steamer Bristol, was shattered this morning on the arrival of the
steamer Amur from the north. On tho
up trip.a searoh was made, thc steamer cruising around both Green and
Cray islands in the expectation of
some evidence of the lost ones being
found, but without avail. It was
night time when the steamer arrived
off the sceno of the disaster, but in
order lo assure himself of whether or
not tho men were in the vioinity, dead
or alive. Captain McLeod remained by
until after daylight. Nothing of the
liritsol herself could be Been, not a
panicle of wieckage was found in
the locality, little if any having come
to the surface. Tho mainland was
only threo miles distant and here as
elsewhere there were no signs of life
a,hore. A number of cannery steamers from Ketchikan also searched
without avail.
Capt. (iaudin, local agent of the
department of marine and fisheries,lias
�� pair of binoculars for presentation
to M. I), Clarke, lighthouse keeper at
Entrance island, at the entrance of
Nanaimo narbor and his assistant
John lloberts. Tho glasses are pre-
Huntrd by the Dominion government
in recognition ol tho horoio rescue by
the two men of a couple of Indians on
July 10th of last yoar. Thu latter were
thrown into the water by their canoe
Cttpilzlng and thoir position was very
Perilous. Thu light keeper i.nd his
assistant at onco put ont to the rescue
nnd succeeded in saving both Indians.
The nominations for tho vacant seat
in the Houso of Commons by the retirement of Col. Prior, took place
today, Frank S. Barnard, local director of the I). C. Electric Tramway,
was nominated by the Conservatives
and Geo. Riley, gontleman, by the
Liberals. Tho election will bo hold

"Pinion advanced here thia evening by
ome naval officers was that  the  Con-
It She Does Not Return She   Will    Bo
Tried in Spokane.
Grand Porks, Jan. 21.���The police
authorities here havo been notified
that Mrs. Annie [lamer,who lied from
here to escape sentence on a charge of
procuring, is applying for a writ of
habeas corpiiH at Republic in order to
obtain her discharge from custody.
The argument was to havo boen heard
at Republic today. Police Magistrate
Johnson,of Orand Forks, stated today
that he was communicated with by
telephone by the prosecuting attorney
at Spokane, and that the latter stated
that the Blue Ooose would bo brought
to trial at Spokane on a similar
charge, should the efforts to bring, tho
prisoner back to Canada prove unsuccessful.
It is conceded that the offense in not
an extraditable one but prior to the
habeas proceedings,it was thought the
woman would consent to return here
for sentence. B. J. Taylor, father of
Mrs. Sim Galloway, Ihe victim of the
machinations of Mrs. Hamer. and
Oaliowav, it said to favor bringing
the woman to trial in the American
courts. Police Magistrate Johnson
today formally sentenced Oalloway to
six months in the common jail at hard
labor, the term to begin after the
prisoner lias served the 23 months'
term imposed in the County court by
Judge Leamy last week.
Challenges Riley to Provo That He
Tampered With a Witness.
Victoria, Jan. 21.���At a political
meeting held last night at Eqnimalt,
Geo.Riley, Liberal candidate, charged
Col. Prior that he and Thus.Earle and
Robert Cassidy had offered an elector,
who was a witness against Prior and
Earle in Sn election petition, $250 to
leave the country. Tonight Prior at
a meeting held at the Victoria theatre
characterised the statement as a deliberate falsehood nnd put up an accepted cheque for 9500 in the hands of thc
chairman, challenging Riley to put up
a like amount and produce evidence
before Rev. K. C, Rowe, Methodist
minister, and if he failed to prove his
charge, forfeit the $500 to the Jubilee
hospital. Further, tbat if Riley failed
to accept this challenge Prior would
take action against Riley and the
Times newspaper for criminal libel.
A Much Wanted Man in Canada Arrested by Americans.
Ogdensburg, N.Y., Jau. 21.���A man
said to be Melvin Hall, alias James
Smithe. was brought hero today
heavily ironed, shackled to a sheiiff
and guarded by two special officers.
Hall was arrested at the instance of
the Canadian authorities who charge
him with grand larceny, for which
there aro said to be several indictments, with attempted murder and
wilh blowing up dwellings at Mor-
risburg, Ontario,  with dynamite.
He was apprehended at Watertowu,
were he was living as a farmer. He
refuses to go to Canada and has engaged attorneys to fight extradition.
Jefferson City, Mo., Jun. 21.���J. L.

(Saturday, Mny llth, 1800, Craft escaped
from   the   Missouri     penitentiary   In

House he stole a Winchester ride and
when Henry Spicker, a member of tho
possu enmo suddenly npon him, Craft
shot and fatally wounded him. Later
Cralt was shot and recaptured.
Irish Members Question Him
About War Expenditure.
Ministerialists and Imperialists Applaud Spirited
London. Jan. 31,���Right Hon. A. .1.
Balfour's spirited rebuke last night to
the Irish Nationalists in the House of
Commons for an imputation on the
louylty of Canada and Australia was
warmly applauded in ministerial
Connor O'Kelly, M. P., for North
Mayo, asked whether any steps bad
been taken to induce the colonies to
pay their shares of the coi>t of the
Balfour, the leader of the house,
evoked loud ministerial and Liberal
imperialist cheers by a grateful
acknowledgment of the contributions
the colonies have already voluntarily
made in men and money. He said the
imnutation conveyed by the question
was uncalled for and was expressed iu
quite unnecessarily offensive language.
W. Redmond, M. P., for East Clare,
asked what the colonies had paid The
speaker rnled him out of order.
Mr. Redmond, whose wife is an
Australian, shouted : "Why not ask
Australia to pay as well as Ireland?"
which evoaed loud cries of "Order."
The iucident illustrated the solidarity of tbe Ministerialists and Imperialist Liberals in appreciation of the
parts Canada and Australia huve played iu the war, although Mr. Chamberlain has criticized the Liberal press
for insisting that colonies have some
say in Sonth African settlement.
Senator Lodge Warns the Senate
Against Mortgaging the Future.
Washington, Jan. 21.���For nearly
three hours today the Senate had
under consideration the Philippine
tariff bill. The measure was made
the unfinished business and probably
will hold that position of preference
until it shall have been voted on
The debate was opened Dy Mr.
Lodge, chairman of the committee en
tbe Philippine. He sketched in a free
handed way the reasons which had
actuated the majority in presenting
the measure and urged strongly its
enactment into law at an early date.
He explained Tiith some minuteness
the nccesaity for the legislation embodied in the bill and conclundod
with an appeal to the Benate and to
congress to deal with questions relating to the Philippines as they might
arise and to keep clear of vague word:,
and vaguer promises which were
likely to be misinterpreted and to
raise false hopes in the minds of the
Filipinos. In an impassioned peroration he besought co ogress not to give
loortgagoi on an unknown future.
Interesting Address to New
York  Bar Association.
Objects Sought and Progress
Made   ln   Recent
of the prize laws robs the combatants
of that attribute which does them the
j most honor���disinterested sacrifice in
their Country's cause. While much
still remains to be done, said the ambassador, each day sees the nations
grow more considerate to one another
and their mutual intercourse It is a
notable fact, he said, that after the
recent happenings in China, France
sent to the Chinese government tbe
works of art whioh had heen shippoa
to her, while President Roosevelt has
just rostored to China the sum of
8370,000 which had been seized in
Tien Tsin. Such generous proceedings would have greatly astonished
our ancestors.
He   was followed by Mr.   Beck who
spoke on the suppression of anarchy.
Dnvid, W, Va., Jun. 21 ���The hotel
at tho Hamilton lumber camp was
bmned today and probably a dozen
lives were lost. A nnmher of others
were injured. An expbsion is supposed to havo started the flames which
quickly cut off all ordinary means of
escape. The names of the dead have
not yet been obtained owing to the
isolated situotion of the camp.
France Demands That China Avenge
Father Julion's Death.
Paris, Jan. 21.���The Foreign office
heie has received confirmation of the
statement contained in a dispatch
from Pekin, that tbe French minister
there, M. Beau, has declined to preseut his credentials until China hns
taken steps to seouro reparation for
tho murder of Father Julien, a French
priest, and two Chinese converts at a
village in tho north of Kwang Si
province M. Beau took the same
stund at the beginning of January
in connection with the murder of
missionaries in Kan Su provinjo.
Uticn, Jnn. 21.���Angus Brown,
division superintendent of motive
power of tho Ccntrnl Hudson railway
wns instantly killed at West Albany
this afternoon. He was walking on
the westbound passenger track and
started to cross thc enstbound piissen-
gor track when he was struck by an
express train which was about an
hour late.
Allan Lino Not Yet. Included in
Morgan Steamship Scheme.
Loudon, Jan. 21.���No confirmation
is obtainable here of the statement
that the Allan line is included in the
plan now being submitted to J. l'ier-
pont Morgan for a gigantic trust of
trans Atlantic steamers, although
steamship authorities here sny that
doubtless the Allans and likoly most
British firms would sell thoir ships if
sufficiently big prices were given.
Albany, N.Y., Jan.21.���The feature
of the twenty-fifth annual meeting of
the New York State Bar association was the gathering in the assembly chamber this evening of a distinguished audience that filed every
inch of available space in it to greet
the French ambassador, M. Jules
Cambon, and the Hon. James M.Beck,
assistant attorney-general of the
United States. M Cambon's subject
was "Relations between Diplomacy
and Publio and Private Law."
M. Cambon had chosen a most Interesting subjection. He opened his address by saying tbat there were few
callings which are more misunderstood by the public than that of a
diplomat. It is readily assumed in
some quarters, he said, that the prime
function of a diplomat is simply to
serve oa all occasions of international
courtesy while in others it appears to
be the idea that the paths over which
the diplomat travels are deep and dark
and that consequently diplomacy, in
its essence, is inturigue pure and
simple. It would be difficult to conceive a grosser error, said the auibns,
sador The fundamental duty of diplomacy, the ambassador said, is to
enforce respect for the provisions of
international law aud to foster their
continuous development, thereby rendering essential service to the ad-
tancement of civilization and
strengthening the social bond which
links together the nations of the
Little remains, he said, of tbe
events which brought about tbe congress of European nations at Varis in
1855 after the war in the Orient, yet
its rulings have left a lasting trace
on international law. The full portent of the new principles proclaimed
by the conference at The Hague, he
continued, is not altogether understood as yet, but those principles are
destined to become engraved on tbe
conscience of humanity,
In this connection, he paid a tribute
to Lord Pauncefote, who took such an
active part in the conference at The
M. Cambon entered upon that phase
of his subject which touched private
interests and thc relations between
nations as regards the application of
their private laws to foreigners.
While we are free to admit common
rules in the domain of public law, he
said, we are forcod to acknowledge
that nothing is moro mutable than
private law and the rule of diplomacy
is to understand the divergence of
these laws, to seuk to reconcile them
and thus to endeavor to protect the
rights of private parties even in a
foreign land.
He pointed out that France was tne
first nation to enter upon this field,
when, in 1700 she concluded witbj
Sardinia a treaty which allowed the
execution in France of judgments
properly rendered In Snrdinia. In
certain countries, ho continued, ihe
mode of organization creates at times
unexpected obstacles to tbo carrying
out of the international agreements
and in this connection he called attention to tho fact that thc individual
rights of the states which form the
United States nt.tlmes complicates thc
task of tlm government with a foreign
power. It seems, he said, that since
thc status can have no individual intercourse with foreign powers, the
federal government, which alone
pussescs the right to negotiate on
their behalf, should be empowered
to see to the complete execution of the
agreements which it bus made.
We must aim, said M. Cambon, in
concluding his address, to destroy all
those barriers between civilized
nations which maintain between them
a certain indefinable spiiit of latent
hostility, a lingering vestige of old
barbarism. Iu time ol war private
property Bhould receive thc same protection in naval an in land campaigns,
said tho ambassador, and he gave it
as his opinion   that   the maintenance
i Toronto   Club   Defeated   In
the   Stanley   Cup
Secretary Hay Will Not Discuss Joint
Note on tho War.
Wabington, Jan. 21,-The State
department will not be drawn into
the controversy which has sprung up
between the European powers respecting the efforts made by them to pre
vent the United States from going to
war with Spain. Lord Camborne's
statement in parliament yesterday is
recognized as absolutely correct so far
as it went, but there are chapters in
the story which he did not touch upon
and it is recognized here as inexpedient to develop all the facts even now,
lest animosity spring up without
sufficient reason. The frank statement
of Lord Cranborne touching Austria's
earnest efforts to prevent war caused
uo resentment here, where it is realized that thero were dynastic and
sympathetic reasons that justified, or
at least extenuated the Austrian purpose.
New York, Jan. 21.���Mayor Lowe
tonight announced that on the day of
the launching of the German Emperor's yacht he will give a dinner to
President Roosevelt and Prince Henry
at the Metropolitan club. Tbis will
be followed by a gala performance of
opera, to be concluded through the cooperation ot Mr. Gran, under the
auspices- ol a committee which Mr.
Low has appointed. Tlie dinner will
be given by the mayor personalis',and
the guests will be, in the main those
whom the official proprieties of the
occasion indicates.
Why Austria Tried to Prevent the
Spanish War.
Vienna,Jan. 21.���Inquiries made by
the Associated Press at the Austro-
Hungarlan Foreign office confirm the
essential points of the stattnents mado
by Lord Camborne, the British
Foreigu under-secrotary, in the House
of Commons yesterday. The dynastic
relations of Austria witb Spain, the
Queen regent being an arch-duchess of
Austria, led Austria, before the declaration of war between Spain and
the United States, to begin a peace
propaganda, which was carried on not
only in England, but throughout
Europe. France was ready to seeonu
tbe efforts of Austria. Ocrmanv aud
Russia maintained a passive attitude.
Great Britain was at first disposed to
sign the proposed note,but aftei a con-
lldeiitul report from Washington declined either to sign such a note ns
the Austrian ambassador proposed, or
to tako any further steps. Afterwards
Anstria and France made direct representations at Washington, hut teased
their efforts after the declaration of

The messenger will deliver copies

the cast and west, including Detroit,
Cleveland, Minneapolis, St. Paul,

in the series for the Stanley Cup and
the Canadian hockey championship,
was played here this evening between
the Winnipeg Victorias, delenders,
and the Toronto Wellingtons, champions of the Ontano Hockey association. The result was 5 to 3 in favor
of the Victorias. Thu weather was

under which the Ontario champions
are accustomed to play. An enormous

Wm. P. Robertson, provincial mineralogist, has issued an estimate on
the amount and value of the mineral
products lor British Columbia for the
year 1901, which places the yleid at
$20,718,501, against $10,344,751 lor the
year 1600 and 112.393,181 for 1899.
Roughly speaking, Mr. RcbertBon
says, the gain in 1901 over 1900 was 25
per cent. In dollars and cents the increase of 1901 over 1900 is 84,363,750,
which is a substantial and encouraging gain.
A few other comparisons fiom the
figures may not prove uninteresting.
The quantity of placer gold decreased,
as in 1900 $1,278,724 wbb produced,
while last year only $892,500 was won
by the placer miners. The quantity
of gold outputted by tbe lode miners
was increased over a million. In 1900
the production of gold from thc lode
mines wbb 83,453,38 while in 1901 it
was $4,704,200, an increase of 30 per
Silver iu the same year increased
from $2,309,200 to $2,024,002, or an
Increase of 14 per cent.
Copper showed the greatest increase
a? in 1900 $1,615,289 worth was mined,
while in lflol the value of the copper
output was 84,951.008. The gross increase In the valuo of the copper production was 2Ufi per cent. Reduced to
tons and leaving out the fractions
4,998 tons of copper were produced iu
1900 and 15,308 tons in 1901. This
shows that tho province is beginning
to be a factor in cupper production,
and that in a year or two it will have
to be taken Seriously into consideration by the combines that aro endeavoring to control the price of the
Lead, owing to the low price of the
metal, showed a falling off as in 1900
the production was worth $'!,091,887,
while last year it was only 81,970,641
In 1(100 the output of had in tons was
31.697, while in 1901 it was only
25,264 tons, a falling off ot 6,415 tons.
This is explainable in the first place
by the low price in lead and as consequence of this the closing down of
such mines as the .St.Eugene, Sullivan
and North Star in East Kootenay.
Then, too, a number of the mines in
the Sioean which were operating did
not push work with the energy which
would have been the case had the
price of silver and lead beon higher;
in some instances ere was saved after
boing extracted in tho hope that the
prices of metals would rise.
Coal also showed an increase. In
1900 1,439,505 tons were extracted,
while in 1901 the quantity wns 4,587,-
630 tons. In 1900 tin ro was 85,149
tons of colre manufactured and in 1901
there were 673,800 tons. The market
for Coke both and coal is enlarging.
Thc tonnage of ore mined by the
lode mines last yonr was in the neighborhood of 871,832 tons, uqual to un
Increase o' 317,0311 tons over tho year
1900,'or a little more than 57 per cent
The increase in the vnlnc of thu output of last year over the previous one
ol the lode minufl was only 25 por
eent., while the innreso in the ton
rage was 57 per cent, roveals that ore
of lower grado is being extracted
This is because the decreasu in the
freight and transportation charges,the
improvements that havu been wrought
hy the addition of machinery a more
economical method of working, the
building of new wagon roads, etc.,
have made it pnshible tn extract and
reduce ore of a lower grade than whs
formerly the case, nnd this is being
done in the face nf a considerable fall
iu the price of hilver, learl and eoppor.
Another point which tlie figures ie-
veal is that the trend is toward lode
gold-copper mining and to a certain
extent againBt silver-lead mining.
This Is shown in the increase yield of
gold and copper arid the decrcH.se in
thc prod notion of lead and the Small
Increase made by silver. This is but n
temporary condition, however, and
one that will adjust itself. With the
decrease in prmlnetion there will
naturally result n cniiMimptinn of the
ampins   stocks   ul the two metals and
then    ass
Copper,   too,    is   under   a   temporary
Icloud, we believe, largely as a   result
| of   stook   manipulation,   hut   should
soon emerge from under the   effect  of
low prices.
The consoling feature of Mr.Robert-
sen's report, however, is found In the
fact that notwithstanding the serieB
of staggering blows which the mining
industry received during the year
1901, in the shape of the strike in
Rossland, the diop in silver from
around 60 to 55 cents, the fall in lead
till our mine owners are receiving but
$1.20 per cental for it, tho drop in
copper from 17 to 12 centB and other
truubles, the industry has gone on
serenely and that 1001 shows an increase on the grjss value of the production of 25 per cent, over 1901.
Should we do no better than thia in
the present year and make a clear
increase of 25 per cent, it would
not be a bad showing, but we believo
that the increase will be considerably larger. Matters have reached
their worst, so far as the price of
metals are ooncerned, and any change
that may take place in the situatiun
should be for the better.

For the place, made vacant by the
death of Chief Justice of the Supreme
Court McColl, E. P. Davis, K. C, of
Vancouver, is strongly endorsed by
the members of the bar of the province as well as by many others, and it
is very probable that the appointment
will be tendered him. Mr. Davis Is
one of the very best lawyers in the
province aud for the past eight or
nine years has enjoyed a splendid
practice. He has always been a hard
student, is of quick perception, and
has a wide acquaintance with nearly
every branch of the law. In court
practice he has been very successful
and there have been but few important oases in the province in the last
few years in which he did not take
part. In the Centre Star-Iron Mask
suit, in which largo interests were
involved, he wbb the senior counsel
for the Centre Star company. On this
cause, although it never came to a
final issue, still large sums were spent
by both sideB for expert testimony and
in it legal proceedings were takon for
the fiist time in the province on the
question of extra-lateral rights. Both
parties to the action want into the
contest to win and money for a time
seemed to have hut little value to
The caso whioh brought Mr. Davis
first prominently before the public
was in 1891-2, when charges were preferred again.it Commissioner Herchi-
mer of thc Northwest Mounted Police.
These were for alleged misfeasance
in office and the case was a celebrated one. The inquiry was made
by a Dominion commission and Mr.
Davis, wbo was then practicing his
profession at Calgary, defended Mr.
Uerchiraer. Tho inquiry lasted for
some months and owing to the great
skill and ability displayed hy Mr.
Davis, Mr, Herchimer was acquitted.
This was a result which was not expected when the trial began.
Shortly after this Mr. Davis went
to Vancouver, His triumph in the
Herchimer case had been heralded
theie and he was shortly afterwards in
possession of a lucrative practice,and,
ns he had the ability to sustain the
reputation which had preceded him
he soon found himself in tho front
rank of the British Columbia bar.
Mr. llavis possesses a great sense of
fairness and has what tho attoncys
call a judicial mind. This is one of
the chief reasons, perhaps, why they
favor him so strongly for tho chief
justiceship. The Minor believes that
no butter man could be uhosen in the
province for the vacant plaoe on the
bench. .

Details of  Shipments.  Treatment and
Mining Charges, and Profits.
John II. MacKenzie In his   first  re-
ort to the Le Roi directors, dated
Peuember 19th, says:
Output���The snipments made to th3
Northport smelter for the month of
November totalled 14,088,042 dry tons
of 2 000 lbs each, which ha': an average 'value of 811.28 per ton.
The following brief tabulated sum
roary gives the general details of the
metals values: 4,991.507 ounces oi
aold at S20, equals $99,880.14, or $7,00
,,er ton; 8,832.02 ounce of silver at 55c
equals ..857.94, or 34c per ton; 303,-
012 lbs of copper at 15 l-2o equals
$54,871.51, or $3.85 per ton���gross
value, $158,9511.59; average value per
ton, $11.28.
In addition to the aoove 1,039.1785
dry tons were shipped to the Trail
smelter; this netted from the smelter
��U,084.07, or an average value ol
87.01 per ton of 2,000 pounds.
The gross value of the ore shipped
to Northport, together with the net
amount received from the Trail 3mel-
ter, make a total of $170,593.00. In
order to arrive at the net estimated
profit over treatment I have deducted
$6  fur   all    freight   and    treatment
This is made up as follows: Treatment at smelter, S4.50; freight to
Birellter, SO.75 ; average cost per ton
of ore for realization of matte, $0.75���
��0. Therefore freight and treatment
charges on 14,088.042 tons are 884,-I
528.25, making net estimated profit
over treatment charges, etc., for a
ores shipped during the month
Mine . expenditure���The total expenses on mine account for mouth of
November was $50,071.93, and has
beon apportioned ns follows: Cost of
breaking ore including handling
seconn-clnss oie dump, $409.79,
(4;,087.61; charged to exploration,
$024.85; charged to capital account���
machinery $14.57, surface improvement 87S7.40,iniue equipment 81,557.50
���$8,859,47. After deducting the above
irom the estimated net profit for treatment leaves a balance of estimated
profit $35,393.48,
The average cost per ton for breaking ore and delivering snme on cars
for the mouth is f).40 after deducting
the cost of handling second-class
dump, 8409.79, and the cost of handling, fieight and treatment on second-
class ore dump ore is $3.75.
