Eleventh   Yeai
Deeply Laid Plot to Reelect
Prefontalne ln Montreal,
Misfortune   of   a   Winnipeg
Young Man In Dawson.
Montreal, Jan. 27.���The municipal
election (evens at white Heat tonight.
This afternoon application was made
to Judge Langclir for a writ of man-
iliinius ordered the eity clerk to return
Mayor Piefontalne's name to theballot
paper, Tlio judge granted it. It will
bo remembered that four candidates
were nominated. One, Dr. tiaehapelle
was nominated in tho belief that no-
lioilv Iml 11 Frenchman could beat
rmtmituino. Wilson Sinitn, a former
rnnvor, was nominated because it
wns the turn of an English speaking
mayor. James Cochrane nominated
himself because he considered a
scheme was on foot to force Wilson
Smith on an unwilling electorate.
Mutters were complicated by tlie iaot
that Prefontalne had about ten days
previous sailed for Enrope. Cable
communication was oponed with him
ami tinulty it was decided that
Lnehnpclle and Prefontalne should
retlte, The city charter provides that
tho retirement of a candidate shall
be mado personally. In l'rofontaine's
absence this had,of course, to bo done
by proxy through power of attorney.
Tlie light was then loft between Smith
and Cochrane. A canvass of the oity
soon showed indications that Smith
would he beaten by thousands. Smith
and Prefontalne are Bupposefl to represent the same interests, the big corporations with public franchises. The
icsult was that the writ of mandamus
noted above was asked for and*Pre-
fontaine's nnme restored to the ballot,
beause lis withdrawal not being
made personally, waB illegal. Smith
will now withdrawand aa the contest
is between Profontaine and Coohrane,
tne election of the former is practically certain. Thc impression Is that
the whole affair was a carefully
planned game in whioh Prefontaine's
departure for Europe was first move.
Judicial recount of Linavsl today resulted in the confirmation of the elee-
lion of Wilson, Conservative, by two
votes. Wilson lost eight votes through
ballots not being initialed by tne
deputy returning officer.

New York, Jan.   27.���An   explosion I
in the Park avenue shaft of the   Rapid ,
Transit   tunnel in   this   city   shortly I
after noon today, caused the death   of |
six  persons,   at   least  one    hundred
were injured and serious   damage was
done to property,including the Murray

The approach to tne Btreet railway
tunnel, used by the Madison avenue
line cuts through Park avenue and the
shaft for the Rapid Transit subway
was run down beside it at the intersection of East 41st street. The stroet
railway approach was housed over
with a superstructure used for the
operating plant of the Rapid Transit
contractors. Temporary buildings for
storage purposes in which a quantity
of explosives were stored were thrown
up against tho superstructure at tbe
mouth of the shaft, and there the explosion occurred. It tore a great
gorge in the stieet and demolished the
temporary buildings and port of the
superstructure and sent a mass of
earth, timber and iron high in the
air. Much of it went against the front
of the Mnrray Hill hotel and although
tbe walls and main structure of that
building stood the shook, nearly every
room in the front of the house was
The Manhattan Eye and Ear hospital, on the east side of the avenue
hau to be abandoned. The windows,
glass partitions in the Grand Union
hotel and the Grand Central station
were shattered. The clocks on the
front towers of the station were
blown from their casts. Thousands of
windows, some of them blocks from
the tunnel shaft were broken and the
shower of broken glass and falling
brisk injured a great number of people. Every available ambulance in
the distriot was luckily on the scene
and numbers of the Injured were
treated on the spot.
The cause of the explosion is not
definitely known. Several have been
advanced, bnt it willjjprobably take
an official inquiry to clear the matter np. The most plausible was that a
Bre started near the powder room in
which a quantity of dynamite was
stored, lt is believed that Master
Mechanio Tubb was killed after making a depeiate attempt to quench the
fire before it reached the explosives.
District Attorney Jerome visited the
scene at once ana commeced an investigation. He examined witnesses who
told conflicting stcries and as a result

the work at Park avenue, John
Bracken, foreman, and Martin Mc-
Grath, an assistant foreman, were
placed under arrest charged with
The damage may exceed $1,000,000
The first estimate in the Murray Hill
hotel placed the loss at $100,000, but
later the building was abandoned as
unsafe. If the building is condemned,
thc loss on it  will   reach   $1,000,000.
The damage to the Grand Union is
estimated at $40,000 and to the Manhattan hospital 825,000. Thc loss at
tne Orand Central station was entirely in glass, as was thnt ot one
hundred or more other buildings. No
estimate was made of the loss sustained by the Rapid   Transit contractors.
Fortunately the explosion occurred
at mi hour when not more than a
hundred people were in tho main waiting room ol the Grand Central station.
Some of these were slightly injured
by falling glass; four tienet Bellers
were cut with the Hying slivers. The
offices of tho New York Central did
not sutler ns much as the New Haven
offices. President Newman wbb at
his desks at the time of the explosion.

Ho  Has  Done  Much  to Build up the
J. Roderick Robertson was about 44
years of age and a native of Scotland,
but was railed in England, where be
received a business training. After
following business pursuits in Londou
he left England for America abont
1883 and became the auditor for
several large insurance companies and
in that capacity gravitated between
New York, Chicago and other large
cities. When English capitalists conceived the idea of purchasing a number of the larger breweries in the
United States he was tbeir agent and
bought a number of leading establishments on their behalf. This was an
importaut undeitaking and the fact
that he was engaged in snch dealings
as were than concerned reveals that be
was a successful man of affairs long
before he made his advent in mining
ventures in British Columbia.
Along in 1885 Mr. Robertson removed to Victoria, where he was for several years a real estate and Investment broker. lt was not until 1891
that he flrst came to the Kootenays
and then ne made only a short visit,
but be came frequently afterwards
and finally iu 1896 he became a permanent resident. In October 1896, he
in conjunction with some wealthy
London citizens organized the London
and Riitibh Columbia Gold FieldB
with a capital stock of ��200,000. This
company in turn has organized subsidiary companies. These are the
Ymir Gold Mines, limited, the Whitewater, limited, the Enterprise B. C.
Mines, limited aud the Cascade Power
and Light company. The Ymir is the
most successful of these, and was
organized in October 1898, with a
capital of ��200,000. With tbe assistance of 8, S. Fowloi, M.E., tbis property has oeen developed into what is
one of the best mines in the Koote
nays. It has for several months past
yielded a profit of $1,000 a day and
has already paid its stockholders
$240,000 in dividends, Tne Whitewater
before it passer1 Into the hand-) of the
London and British Columbia syndicate had paid 8191,000 in dividends,
but since then it has been under
development and only snch ore as was
taken out in tbe court? of such work
has beon shipped. The Cascade Power
company is constructing its plant and
has not yet begun to npply customers
with electricity. Besides this the
London and B. 0, has acquired some
other properties which nre being
developed in order to determine tbeir
worth, Mr. Robertson has the full
confidence cf a number of British inventors nnd has done more perhaps
thnn any single Individual to induce
the investment of English eanital in
Nelson. Slocan and Kettle river mining divisions.
Mr. Robertson was a public spirited
citizen and was the chief spirit in
tho Mino Owners' association and bus
been a tuwer of strength to that or-
ganiatiiin.    He had a large social side
to his nature,  took a deep interest in
the St. Andrew's society, in society
generally, and was a patron of legitimate sports and of the drama. lie
was a member of the Masonic society
and of the Presbyterian church.
Strange as it mny seem Mr. Robertson lor a long time has entertained a
presentiment that he would die suddenly by means of an accident This
presentiment was so strong that be
carried a large accident insnrace on
his life.
He leaves a widow nnd four
children to mourn his demise, and
they have the sincere sympathy of the
entire community in this the hour of
their groat bereavement.

of  Yesterday's  Explosion.
Suspicious Story of a Powder Man  Who  Escaped
Estimate For the Schools Discussed nt
At the meeting of the oity council
last evening tendors were received for
the erection of the addition to the
city offices. There were five tenders
recieved but aftei discussion it was
resolved to call for tenders for erecting the structure in either hi ick or
stone. The matter was referred to the
board of works.
The school estimate then came up
for consideration. For the high school
the estimate for the year's running
expenses amounted to 82,210, consisting of:

This with the furniture expenes for

estimate for the two schools up to
Aid. Selous thought tbat the provincial government were getting a good
deal the best of the transfer of school
government. The city would receive
$15 for each pupil,from tbe provincial
authorities and the school cost at the
rate of $40 per pupil whieh simply
meant that tbe city would now have
$25 a year to pay for each pupil.
Several of the members thought that
the 81,000 for contingent expenses was
too high, and it was Anally decided to
leave the matter iu the hands of thc
school committee, who will meet tne
members of tbe school board and discuss the estimate with them.
Tbe city auditor reported that the
financial statement could not be presented before the next meeting.
Aid. Hamilton referred to the sad
death of J. Roderick Robcitsou, and
the loss sustained by the city and district in his death. The council decided to wait till their next meeting
before passing a resolution of regret,
till particulars had been received.
The council adjourned until Monday, Feb, 3rd, it having been decided
that the weekly meetings would be
continued for the present.
New Yorn, Jan. 27.���There was a
clash in conit this afteruoon between
District Attorney Jerome and Coroner
| GoldenkranZ, The coroner had empanelled a jury and listened to an
affidavit by a patrolman who said
lie had nriested the three men and that
there had been an explosion, Mr.
Jerome insisted that tnoro was no information in tlie affidavit on which
to hold anybody and there was a
wordy wrangle but-oen the two
officials. In spite of protests the
coroner gave Uio case to the jurymen,
who rutired and came back with a
verdict, recommending the discharge
of the prisoners. The coroner then
opened court as a sitting magistrate
and had the men re-arrested and held
thein without bail, Mr. Jerome protested and tho coroner changed his
decision, holding the men in 810,000
hail each. All this had worked up the
feelings of everybody so much that
there was a free fight in which Mr.
Jerome was struck in the face by John
Murray, a coroner's clerk, who in
turn was beaten by two of the district
attorney's detectives. Then the detectives and Murray had each other
arrested, but bettor counsel prevailed
and all charges were withdrawn for
the present. yVndruw Murray was to-
nigiil locked np at a police station
though no charge wbb placed against
him on the blotts.T. Murray had
charge of passing out the sticks of
dynamite to the men In Ibe tunnel
who weie engaged ln making blasts.
Ho snid there were about twenty
sticks of dynamite in the shanty when
the explosion occurred.
Moses Epps, who waa a powder man
in charge of the shanty wheie the explosion occurred, iB at Flower hospital sulfering from contusion and
shock. He said that on gcing to the
slmnty about noon be found a candle
which he had left lighted on a sbelf,
lying on tbe floor of the sbanty and
some paper which was about it, was
on fire. Close to this burning paper
were 13 boxes of dynamite cartridgei,
each box containing from 80 to 75
cratridges, Epps threw a pailful of
water over the Are and ran to get
another one. On coming back with
it, bu saw that the flames were olose
to the dynamite and dropping bis
pail he tried to get away, Then came
the explosion and the next he knew he
was a patient in the hospital. This
evening Epps was practically a prisoner, a policeman having been assigned to guard him.

Thc entire community will learn
with the deepest regret if the untimely death of J. Roderick Robertson,
who perished in an explosion jester-
ddy In New York City. Only a few
days since he wns with us, fnll ol
life, strength and vigor, with plan!
that BItended far Into the future,busy
and energetic with the affairs of life
hopeful of many yoais of usefulness
ami now his memory only remains,
and this reminds us of what shadows
wo all are after all, and how brief
the days of life that are accorded us.
Mr. Robertson was a large figure in
tho affairs of Kootenay, and was cut
off in the very midst of a career of
great usefulness, and his Ions is a
great one. There arc few possessed
of liko intense vitality, courage,
capacity for tlie carrying out
of large enterprises, and of winding
final succcens where mauy obstacles
hBd to be encountered.
For a lnog period ha wns employed
hy London capitalists to look aftor
their investments abroad as he had a
faculty of getting at the root of these
ventures, seeing their weak spots and
where there were errors of management, suggesting changes which soon
put them ou their feet. This work
gave i,im a training and a comprehensive grasp of affairs which made
him so successful in the Kootenays.
Besides this he had the knack of
making those whom ho desired to
impress, sec the possibilities of an
enterprise which he desired to promote In tho same light as he viewed
it, and by reason of thia faculty he
was enabled to induce the investments
of large sums in mining and other
enterprises. There are but few who
have been the direct cause of inducing the investment of larger sums
mining ventures in the Kootenays
than be, and his success in the Ymir
mine would, in time,have led to other
amounts being placed lu the mines
here. In this respect he Was a benefactor to the community.
There were ti'"es when he felt called upon to oppose certain interests,
but when lie did so he fought in the
open and always had the full courage
of his convictions. Even those he
opposed speak admiringly of him and
say that lie was a fair fighter and
never struck below the belt or other'
wise tried to foul Ins adversaries.
Resides attending to tlie affairs of
the cimpnny of which he was the
chief spirit he took a deep interest in
the public and semi public affairs. He
was the principal organizer of the
Mine Owners' association, and now
that he lias depai ted from his sphere
of Usefulness there will be but few
who will give that organization the
time that he aid in order that tt might
be beneficial to those who wero members as well as to the country at large
Mr. Bobertsson interested himself in
Dominion provincial and city politics
and to the end that good, stable and
progressive government might be
secured, lie had but little political
ambition,although to his intimates lie
on one or two occasions confessed that
he would like to have been mayor of
Nelson. This ambition was due to
the great pride winch he took in Nel
son and not for any personal iiggian
Mr. Robertson was strong and constant in ins friendship and his fidelity
where he once extended his good will
to an individual was remarkable. lie
was of a sociable disposition and
shone as toaatmaster ut a banquet.
All who attended the banquet given
on last St. Andrew's day will remember how graceful, bow witty, hjw
full of good] nature he was on that
occasion. In short be was a model
and useful citizen.
i'be entire community will mourn
the departure of so good a man and
one to which tlie public is so much
indebted for the many benefits he has
aided in conferring upon it nnd will
condole with bis bereaved family over
the loss of one who to them was a
kind and affectionate husband and a
loving and indulgent father.
The determination ot tbe Sullivan
Group Mining company to establish
st Marysville, in East Kootenay, in
connection with its lead smelter and
lead refinery a lead corroding <stab-
lishment which will turn out whit.s
lead is one,which, if it is carried out,
will be of great good to the oonntry.
The management of the company says
it is bettor to turn tl\. oie into bullion,   the   bullion   into pig lead,   the
pig lead into whits lead and realize IS
cunts pet pound for it, than it ia to
sell the lead in the ore Ior 1.20 cents
per pound. The difference between
1.20 cents and r> cents per pound will
represent what they will receive for
smelting, refining and and corrodine
and will pay the company well fur
tho trouble. Then, too, the three
processes being performed at one
place and under one management
savings aan be made and the cost of
producing tha final product, white
lead, should bo smaller than where
the smelter, the refinery and the our-
roding works are situated at points
remote from each other, and, as a consequence, considerable in tbo way of
freight bills would have to be paid
before the tin ished article ls manufactured. The plan ol the Sullivan Uroup
mines looks like a feasible one and
hould be carried out to a auocesstnl
About B.GOO tons of white lead and
1500 tons of red and orange lead are
consumed in Canada per anniiiii. but
t present none of these forms of lead
arc made in Canada, but just as soon
as they are it is said to be the intention ol the government to advance the
import duty to sucb a figure as to
give ample protection to the nome
made product.
1'he market will increase with the
natinal augmentation of the population and then there is the foreign
markets. White lead is just as staple
a commodity aa flour and bankers will
lend money on it just as readily as
they will on wheat, as it is used
everywhere. From Omaha in the
United States white lead is sent to
distributing points in the larger
cities and more particularly to
the seaboard towns, not by the oar-
load, out by the trainload, in crder to
secure the minimum rate for transportation. From these centers it Is distributed both in the United States
and abroad. Considerable of the
white lead finds its way to thc Orient,
to Mexioo, South America, and other
portions of tho world. Therefore
when the white lead manufacturers of
Canada produce a surplus it can be
marketed abroad, and for this considerable of the product that is to be
made In the future iu this province
will be sent to the Orient wheie there
is a fairly good market, and to other
countries bordering along the Pacific

The recent organized attempt of
the Canadian Pacific Railway company to turn public sentiment in its
favor by playing on the patriotism
of the people of British Columbia in
order to prevent the government re-
serves of coal land in the Crow's Nest
Pass from falling into any other
hands than its own is about as clumsy
a piece of work in its line as has ever
beeu essayed in this country. It
started all tho organs of Canada's
biggest and most selfish monopoly
playing in one tune. From the
shadows of the rock ribbed Rockies to
where the surf of the Pacific beat
ceaselessly against the shores, from
tho international boundary line to
picturesqne Nelson, the subsidized
organs of monopoly took up the refrain abont coal monopoly and the
driving of the smelting industry to the
south of the boundary line, and have
sung it coaiielessly for weeks. The
papers big and papers small, the
weeklies and the dailies, however,
made tbe mistake of printing the
alleged dispatcher and the editorials,
fresh from the hands of a master of
the writing craft,as they were written
without alteration, and as a consequence thoro was snob a marked slmi-
liarity, sucb a repition of the mannerisms aud style of composition of their
author, that it was easy to discern
that they were of one manufacture
all the ripened fruit of one mind.
The editors had they performed the
duty expected from them by Sir
Thomas and the famous writer���whom
he employs to prepare the proper sort
of propoganda, calculated to work on
the patriotic feelings of the people
when the big road desires to make a
land grab, or a coal grab, or to secure
some other big concession from the
public���should have altered them a
little. Sir Thomas evidently does not
cnre who writes the songs for the
people so long as they can cause their
editorials to be written and published. The fiasco which has been made
in this instance will doubtless cause
Sir Thomas considerable disquietude,
and in the meanwhile someone will
doubtless be hauled over the ted hot |
coals of his anger for doing such
clumsy wotk. A good many people
are wondering whether the organs reoeived a lump sum, a contingent  fee,

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
____ " '  __ _^___     ���>'.'
There iB nothing like Asthmalene. It
iirin^i instant relief, even in t o. worst
oases.    It cures when all else fails.
I [The Rev. O P. WELLS, o Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received iu good oondition, I cannot
tell yon how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it, I was a slave, chained
witli putrid sore throat and asthma for ton
years. I despaired of ever being cured. I
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.    Send me a full size bottle.

Gentlemen:     Your  Asthmalene  is an
excellent  remedy   for  Asthma  and Hay
Fever, and   its composition alleviates all
troubles   which  combine   with   Asthma.
-* Its Buccess is astonishing and wonderful.
After having it caretully analyzed,  we oan state  that Asthmalene contains
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.    Very truly yours,

Drs. Taft],Bb08. Medicine Oo.
Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My Wife has
been afflcted with Spasmodic asthma for th" 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 street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmalen��.
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 atrlioted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHBLPh, M. D.
Db. Taft Bros, Medicine Co, Feb. 5,190L
Gentlemen : I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous remedies, bnt they have all failed. I ran across your advertisement and
started with a trial htittle. I found relief at once. I have since purchased your
full sized bottle, and I am ever grateful. 1 have a family of four obildren, and
for six years was unable to work. I am now in the best of health and am doing
business every day. This testimony you can make suoh use of as yon see lit.

The management of the Canadian
Pacific railway must have a poor
opinion of the Intelligence of the
people of British Columbia to think
for a moment that they could be imposed on by such a poorly managed
crusade as the one which bus so signally and so ingloriously failed.
Eastern Canada has a number of
railroads built across the boundary
and they havo been of material benefit
in building up that section. If the
railways built from across the border
bave been beneficial to thc eastern
portion of the Dominion why should
they not aid in tlie upbuilding ol

to extend from the Crow's Nest mines

There are several companies operating

large and are destined to assume
much larger proportions. The exports
for the five months ending November,
1900, according to the government reports, was 720,400 tons or at the rate
of l,750,r06 tons for a year. A market
must De found abroad for the coal and
the Crow's Nest Southern railway
will be the mean.! of marketing many
thousands of tons per annum. The
coal will be mined in Canada by
Canadian workmen and will therefore
add to the wealth of the country..
There is ample coal for all demands
that will come from home, and by
eason of the increased quantities
mined at home for export to
other countries lessening the cost of
production the local consumers of coal
and coke will purchase It cheaper
than if there .were no foreign demand
for it. The attempt to market this
coal in the United Sates is the head
and front of the offending of James J.
Hill,of the Great Northern, and out of
this a tisane of misrepresentation has
been bnilt, and an attempt made to
work on the patriotism of the people
to injure tbe road aud the oompany

object is so that tbe C. P. li. may

A hook of fairy talcs was the cause of
lho expulsion ami consequent ruin of 175
persons nt Poltova. A pupil at oue ol
the stale schools there was caught in the
act of reading this book of fairy tales,
which had heen prohibited by tho ceusur
on tlie ground that certain of the tides
might be applied to Russian conditions
ami Russian politics. Tho boy explained
that the caretaker of the school buildings
had lent him the book. Tho principal of
tho school reported the caretaker to the
police, and on the ground of this denunciation the offender wns sent to Siberia.
The officials of the institution, together
with several parents of pupils, were so
Indignant at thc conduct of the principal
that they drew up a protest describing
his denunciation as a mean aud despicable net. The only consequence was that
the officials lost their posts, nnd, together
with the residents who had signed tho
protest, were expelled from the province
of Poltova for three years. The order of
expulsion wns extended to nil the relatives of the offenders, so that 175 persons
were sentenced to this severe punishment
on account of a book of fairy tales which

It a Russian woman wishes to study at
any of the universities ln her own land,
etiquette does not allow her to do so until
she is married. Not infrequently she
goes through the civil ceremony of marriage with a man student whom probably
she has never seen before, and this marriage is quite legal, though perhaps the
couple mny never speak to ench other
again. On the other hand, If they like
each other and they so desire, they are
married for life. If they do not, the mnr-
ringe is dissolved when their university
course is finished, nnd they are free to
marry some one else.
The celebrated mathematician Sonya
Kovnlevski went through the marringa
ceremony with a student whom she then
saw for the first time and wbo afterward
became her husband. The education of
women in Russia Btands better than in
most European countries owing to the
persistent efforts of the Russian women

Considerable work is being done at
Kootenay crossing tliis week getting
the construction camps ready and the
preliminary work for the bridge. The
extreme cold, however, will prevent
much being done on tile actual bridge
work until there is a change of

are being shipped down over the Nel-
Bon-Oranitc road.
The six gamblers who were brought
over from Rossland last week to s��rve
terms of impiiHon-nent in the Nelson
gaol were releasel yesterday, having
decided that prison life was not all

wore given an iutimntion that their
presence was not required in Nelson
and they left last evening for Rossland again, but this time without a
legal escort.
A shipment of tramway wire cable
arrived for the Hall Mines last week
and is being teamed up the hill. This
will be used to replace five miles of
the present cable between the mine
and smelter. It was mounted on five
immense spools, each weighing nearly
five tons, one to a dray, and drawn by
eight borses. The wire comes from
two different manufacturers, part
being from the factories of the
Dominion Wire Works and the rest
from an English firm.

During the continuance oi the present cold snap the transitu ring ot passengers and freight will bo done at
either Five-Mile point, or Procter,
instead of Nelson. Yesterday the
International broke her way through
two inches of ice for six miles to
Five-Mile, Out after passing the point
the ice was even thicker so the captain took the vessel back to the wharf
at Five-Mile, where the Kokanee also
stopped. Special trains are now sent
out from the city nt the same times
that the steamers used to leave, connecting nt Five-Mile point, although
it is possible that tbey may only get
as far as Procter if the cold snap con
tinnes. At Kootenay Landing trouble
is also being experienced in keeping
the slip free of ice, as the water there
is very shallow.

At the police court yesterday morning the case of J. Prentice charged
with non-support of his wife came np
for hearing before Police Magistrate
Crease. W. A. Macdonald looked after
the interests of Mrs. Prentice and H.
A. Stewait appeared for the defendant. In her statement Mrs. Prentice
charged that the defendant had married her in January of 1901 and had
been out of work most of the time
since and gave her but little assistance, finally in July leaving her entirely. At the time of the wedding
tho defendant claimed to be foreman
of the Chaph.au mine, but she did not
believe that such was tho cafe. She
had maintained herself partly by
keeping roomers but through ill
health was not able to keep this up.
On cross examination by Mr. Stewar
Mrs. Prentice stated that this was
her fourth husband. She had obtained a divorce from the first two and
the third one had died iu Nelson.
After some further cross examination
the magistrate expressed tne opinion
that this was a case that would probably be better settled out of court, it
possiblc.and tor this purpose adjourned it until this morning at 10.
