Eleventh  Year
Duko and Duchess of York
Warmly Welcomed at Ganadlan Metropolis.
Great Outbursts of Fnthuslas
tic Loyalty Greet Them
Montreal, Sept. in.���The nuke and
Duchesfi of Cornwall journeyed from
Quebec to Montreal today and were
greeted with another affectionate
demonstration fiom the people of this
historic city, They departed from
Qnebeo at I)..10 o'clock in the morning
antl the last Hound that fell upon
their ears wart a cheer from the people
lianki'd around the C. P. R. depot.
They had spent the night aboard the
Royal yacht Ophir and came ashore
shortly after 9 o'clock The narrow
streets in the lower town were jammed with a crowd that extended from
wharf to depot and the appearance of
the young Duke and Duchess was a
sign that inspired the people to enthusiasm.
The sumptuous special train provided especially for their long journey to
tlie Pacific coast was in waiting and
as soon as they were aboard it went
speeding down the north shore of the
tit. Lawrence on the run to Montreal.
The special train was in charge ol
Lieut.-Col. A. P. Sherwood, of the
Dominion police, and Vi. It Baker of
the Canadian Railway,who will make
the entire tr'p with the party, and
I'rusiilent T. (1. Hhaughiiessy was also
aboard to sec it fairly st.irted on tlie
transeontineiital journey. The Royal
special was preceded by half an hour
by another special truln which
carried Lord Minto, the (lovernor-
(leneral, Premier Laurier and the
members of the Dominion cabinet and
almost in company tho two speeded
westward. Along the route the people
came for miles to ycli a cheer or wave
a flag at the lleeticg trains. The
royal train made but one stop of
length during the day and tbat at
Tluee Rivera.
There was a orowd of two thousand
persons at that point gathered about
tho llag draped depot and the city
offlolalfl presented themselves at thc
door of the special car Cornwall, the
Duke and Duchess appeared for a
brief greeting and as the train swept
through the railroad yard they waved
their haudB at tho crowd. The day
was perfect and the ride down the
valley of the St.Lawrence was greatly
enjoyed by the royal party.
The welcome at Montreal, which
was reached at 3 o'clock, was an ova
tion. Thousands of visitors had
crowded into the city to reinforce the
residents and they all seemed to bo
massed in the neighborhood of 1'lace
Vigor station and the streets designated for the course of the Royal
couple to the homo of Lord Strathcona
placed at their disposal. The Duchess
left tba train flrBt, behind her came
the Dnke attended by tho Duke of
llox borough aud Viscount Cereghton.
The Duke wore the full dress uniform
of a liritisli admiral and bis staff
woio the uniforms of their respective
commands. As tho party left the train
the battery thundered out a Royal
salute. Lord Minto nnd his staff,
Premier Lauri��r and the ministers
witn Mayor Prefontaino, garbed in
the robes of his olliee wero in waiting
and after the formal presentations the
party prooeeded to a beautifully
draped stand in front of the depot,and
under a banner inscribed "God
Prosper Our Unitod Umpire." Mayor
Prefoutaine then read an address of
weloome. The addiess expressed the
pleasure of thc people at the visit of
the Duke and pledged loyalty to the
ctown. Tho Duke in replying referred to his own two previous visits
to the oity and that of hll father King
Kdward in 18(10 and expressed his
thanks for tho kindly reception given
to him. At the conclusion of tho address 140 veterans of the South African
war wore called into the stand and
presented w'th service medals. As
the Duke handed each man his medal
he biielly thanked him for Mb patriotism and valor. The crowds behind
the lona: lines of troops cheered
wildly ilH the rewarded soldiers filed
from the stand.      At the conclusion of
party were escorted to their carriages,
and under guard of ni'litHiy detaoli-
mentn. As Ihey left lhe depot 7fi0
school children so costumed and
grouped as to form a living Union
Jack sang "God Save the King."
Militiamen lined the gaily decked
stioets and nt frequent intervals
graceful arches spanned tho wny.
Every bouse showed Its bunting, llag
or trophy. Colors and inollos of weloome in French and English were
everywhere displayed. The progress
of tho royal party through the
thronged streets was a prolonged ovation. The municipal reception plan-
nod for tonight in honor of the Duko
nnd Duchess was abandoned on account, of the death of President. Mil-
ICinley tint the city wns brilliantly
illuminated, and thero was a torch
light procession and display of fireworks.
Rain fell during the evening bnt
the city kept up its merry spiiit until
far into the night. As a further mark
of respect to the American people in
t.heir mourning, there wil! be no public functions tomorrow. Tlio Duko is
to receive a degree at the Mellill University and be and the Duchess will
make a number of private visits.

Montroal, Sept. 18.���Montreal's welcome to tho Duko ami Duchess of Vork
left nothing to ho dosiied. Three
hundred thousand people lined the
streets through which the Royal pio-
cession passed nnd gave the Royal
couple a continuous ovation. Anything like it has never been seen here
before. The Royal train arrived at 3
o'clock amid the booming of cannon
nnd ringing of church bells. As the
Royal parly steeped from the Rcyal
train, followed by a Drllliant suite,
they were met by His Excellency the
Hovernor General, His Worship the
Mayor and chairmen of tbo reoeption
committees. After a sboit conference
the Royal party proceeded Lb rough thc
station and appeared at Hie entrance
fronting on Craig Btreet. This was
tlie signal for one   of tho   wildest and
most enthusiastic welcome that was
ever given any visitor lo the city.
Immediately the crowd shouted itself

bright, cool and clear day, it could
not have been more suitable for the
gathering of enormous crowds which
surrounded tho Place Vigor station
mil lined the route of the Royal procession, though there was a considerable downpour before   the   procession
nched its destination. The progress
of the Royal visitors from the entrance
of the station to the dais was nothing
short of a triumphal marcli. The enthusiasm of the people knew no
bounds. After reading of addresses of
welcome of tbo city and presentation
of medals to South African soldiers,
the Royal procession at once started.

llifford was elected to the Piovincial
Legislature today over Hon. .1. C.
Hrown, who wont hack to his constituency after his aeceptaneo of
portfolio of provincial Secretary. It
was an important election and the
result piactically amounted to a defeat of the (Iovernment. It was a
light between Martin and everybody
else. It U a well known fact that he
Iominates the premier and Brown wns
his nominee lor the vacant portfolio.
Mar tin throw Himself into the light
but was too much for Brown to
carry. Formerly Martin was strong
here but the electors have had enough
ot hiin. Without Martin as au issue
Hrown would have easily defeated
(lifford, who cannot be regarded as a
strong candidate in any sense of the
word. This makes the (Icvernmenl's
defeat tiie more crushing.

that Dunsmuir will resign and to get

to ask Joe Martin to form a government. If tho premier attempts to
patch up his cabinet it is hard to

Hilly Molnnes will likely be a Martin

under tbe hypnotic influence of

Czar and Czarina Arrive at
Dunkirk and Are Guests
of France.
Special  Train Bears  Them
Through Miles of Watchful Soldiers.
Compiegne, Sept. is.���Tlio Czar's
first day on French Nnil passed without unto wnrd incident except the do-
lay of n couple of hour., in docking
the Standart tho Russian Imperial
yacht, at Dunk irk. The Proidontial
train conveying M. Loubet and tht-
Tzar and Czarina with their suit, h
arrived at Crmpngnie this evening.
The utmost vigilance was exeicised
along the railroad track, The train
dashed through a double row of
bayonets and drawn Bab res at. the infantry were reinforced by regimencs
of dragoons and hussars. In sonic
eases a double line of troops was on
each side of the track, the fiist being
foot soldiers and the seoond line cavalry. Any outrage'along the traek
was utterly impossible as no one was
allowed to apt)roach it.
There was a brilliant spectacle at
the landing place as the Standart approached. Ashore were drawn up
infantry and cavalry, while grouped
around President Loubet was a gathering of billiantly dressed officers and
state functionaries. Several Russian
officers scut in advance of the Cznr
were also there whilo on hoard the
Standart on the main deck were the
Czar and Czarina. (in either side
were superbly attired aides de camp

Fore and aft were massed tho crew
and on the upper deck stationed the
ship's hand,' placing the " Marseillaise," to which tho massed bands
ashore responded Hist with a fanfare
.md then witn the Russian national
hymn. The Czarina appeared to be
not altogether at ease when she
stepped ashore. Probably she suffered from seasickness. The Czar, on
the contrary, was in Ihh happiest
mood, his good nfttured face beaming
with smiles. President Loubet, after
giving the Czarina his aim, and with
the Czar on the other side of her
majesty, passed through the covered
passage which was lined with French
officers to the Chamber of Commerce
amid deafening applause.

������routing a smelter at Marysville near
its mine for tho purpose of reducing
its own ore and silver lead ore from
adjoining mines, Whan this smelter
begins operations it should be quite
an important factor in the development of the mining industry in East

treated at a plant close at band, thus
making a reduction in the ejst of

every investor seemed to confine liis
operations to one or two camps, which
were being industriously boomed, Kast
Kootenay was passed over and neglected to a considerable extent; now.
However, that it has been demonstrated that it is a region of large ledges of
rich oie. which haa been proved beyond tlie peradventure ot a doubt by
the St. Eugene, North Slur and Sullivan Mining companies, it should succeed in attracting the attention of
capital, which is all that is needed to
nake it take_a high rank among the
producing sections of britisli Columbia. Wilh the results already attained before them capital need have no
fear of the future of the section and
from dow on it should have a sure
and steady gro vth.

the .Sinclternien's Union of Noithport.
Mr. Walker expressed himself as he-
lug very well pleased with the outlook at Northport nnil suid lie was
confident that the union men would
ultiauitely win there. It was his opinion that the union element had scored
a big point in their favor in the con
viction and lining of Albert (Jeiser at
Rossland on Tuesday as it would put
a stop to the bringing in of nonunion men from thc United States to
work in tlie mines there. lie suys so
far thc union at Northport lias been
playing a wailing game, pending the
decision of Judge llanford of the
United States Distriot court on the
permanent injunction asked for by
the management of tho smelter. This
decision will nave a great bearing,
lie says, on tbe plan of campaign of
the union. After remaining for a few
days in Nelson Mr. Walker will go to
Ainsworth to look after somo mining
interests which he hns there.

At the   opening of  the police oourt
��� yesterday morning   the   case   of   Jim
and Sing Lee, accused of lighting and
disorderly enndnct again came up.
Jim's case hau been heard at the previous day's session and a fine of $20
aud costs o*. two month's imprisonment was imposed, A. M. Johnson,
counsel for the prisoner asked for
twenty-four hours f jr his client to
decide as to whether he would appeal,
whicli was granted.
Before Sing Lee's case was started
an interesting ceremony took place in
the swearing in of the Chinese interpreter and witnesses. Each wrote his
name on a s|ip of white paper, which
was then set on fire by a policeman,
the signer holding the paper till bis
name had heen utterly buined, the
burning being symbolical of what
would happen to bim if he gave false
witness. Tbe interpreter in addition
had to certify to the correctness of the
signature, a favorite trick being to
sign somo one else's name. In a verv
important case in addition to this a
chioken is killed and fnthor proceedings take place over the body to
assist in getting the truth of a case.
Jim was asked to tell his story. He
started in English but his feelings
getting too strong to express iu
English he lapsed into Chineso, when
the interpreter's services were called
into requisition. By his story it appealed that there had been bad blood
between Sing Leo and himself, tho
culmination being a sciies of quarrels. He stated that he had been
coming down Josephine stroot when
he met the other man who made a
face at him and audibly cast, reflections on bis ancestry. "Then I glah
pliece tloom slick and hit him on
When Sing was called to give witness he stated that he had been very
sick for throe days and had just got
up and noma down town. The regatta
was in progress at the timo and he
and a number of other Chinamen
climbed upon a fence whero thoy sat
watching the races from a distanc**.
Suddenly something hit bim
"whlack" on the head and knocked
him off the fence. He got up and
getting over the fenco struggled to get
possession of the stick, the other
Chinamen wildly exoited dancing
around, when the policeman came up
and arrested them.
The evidence showed that this was
practically how the affair had happened, and as a previous fight the
week before, in which Jim alleged
that Sing was the aggressor, vias not
taken Into account Sing was dis
charged.     The   decision, judging   by

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Dellector Kire Pot greatly increases thc heating capacity of the stove, nnd in connection with the deflector rinj,- forces the
heat to the lloor. The base is hot, the door lieinj,*- warmer than W'tll a
base burner.
The Hot "last Attachment takes in the cold air through a duel al the
rear of the fire pot, the healed air being discharged in a circle at the top
of lire pot, over fire, thus consuming ail the gases and products of combustion. It can he operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently, by a screw register in the rear of base, insuring complete
control ofthe st. ve with nearly perfect combustion,
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the hack takes the cold air from
the lloor and ejects il intensely healed, through the top ad. ing greatly
to the heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according to directions we guarantee it to
consume all the gas contained in soft coal, thus deriving the benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkab'e saving of
fuel over any other stove on the market. The stove will hold Cue from
24 to 48 hours without attention.
