UID TO REST
While World Mourns, the Murdered  President Makes
His Last Journey.
Impressive Ceremony In the
Ohio Town That Was
His Home.
Canton,   Ohio,    Sept.     1!).���As   the
time approached for bearing  the body
of the dead President from the Me
Kinley home to the church today, the
little eottt.ge of North Market stieet
wan ihe centre of a vast concourse of
people. Regiment after regiment of
soldiers, acting as guards, were in
triple lines from curbs back to the
lawns, In iront of the McKinley cot*
lago was drawn up the two liles of
hearers, oigh soliliers of the army,
unci eight sailors of tho navy, waiting
thi eider to take up the casket. At
this time the black chargers of Cleveland troops swept down the street,
the riders four abreast, in their brilliant Hussars uniform with Hags
bound in creep and every sabre hilt
bearing the fluttering emblem of
mourning. Their coming was the
signal for the approach of the President and members of the oabinet.
It was 1.16 o'clock and the time had
come for taking up the body, A briuf
service had been held within the
darkened chamber, Dr. Manchester
saving a prayer while tho relatives
gathered around, and Mrs. McKinley
listened from the half opened door of
her adjoining room. A solemn hush
fell upon the multitude as the bearers
advanced with measured trend. Not a
buglo blast; not a strain of the
hy tuns the dead ruler had lovod so
well, wont up. The scene was majestic in its silenco. Ab the casket was
borne along above the line of heads
could be seen enfolding Stars and
Stripes and on top great masses of
while roses and delicate lavender
orchids. Tenderly the coffin was committed to the hearse and the silence
was broken as the order to march
passed from officer to officer.
The great procession now took up
its mournful journey, passing under
the sweep of giant arohes, robed in
black, between two living lines of
humanity massed along the streets,
covering liouse to house and filling the
windows. The church bells were
tolling, ratngliug their dismal tones
with the cadence of the funeral dirge.
At either side of the hearse marched
the guard of military and naval
honor, the generals on the right led
by tleneral Miles, and the admirals on
the left, led by Admiral Farquhur.
Then came two long linos of carriages
for the relativen and friends,and after
them the innumerable military and
civic organizations that are assembled
to pay this last lionoi ta the fallen
chief. In the line were division after
diivsion of Kniglits Templars,Knights
of PythiaB, Masons, Odd fellows, and
representatives of benevolent orders,
Chambers of Commerce, as well as
delegations of citizens of cities aud
towns throughout the state and
countiy. It whs 1.50 o'clock when
the procession passed the court liouse
nnd turned Into Tuscarawas street to
Hie stately stone editice where the
funeral services wero to be held. At
the ohucrh entrance were drawn up
deep lines of soldiers with bayonets
advanced, keeping a dear area for the
advancing casket and the long trnin
ot mourners. The heaise halted while
President Roosevelt and the members
of the oaDinet alighted. Again thoy
grouped themselves at either vide of
the entrance and with uncoveied
heads waited tho passing caskot.
Then the llower covered coffin was
brought from the hearse, and as it
Passed within the black draped entrance, the President and his cabinet
followed within the edifice. The
mourners, too, passed inside but tho
stricken widow was not among them.
She hail remained behind in tho old
home, alone with her giief.
The scone within the chnrch when
tho casket was carried in on tho
brawny shoulders of the soldierB and
sailors was profoundly impressive.
The members of the Senate and the
Houap of Representatives had rroeced-
ed the coffin through the door at tbo
side of the chancel through which it
eutored.     They were ushered iu as atj
... ...die ceremonies by the  sergeant**
at-arnis nf ench body. Senators
Allison, of Iowa, uml Hates, of Tennessee, headed the senatorial representation, of .vhieh there were about 10.
and Speakei Henderson and Representative llalsoll of tint House, of which
mme than half of tho membership
waa piesent.
It was after II o'clock when the
s'lont and anxious throngs outside
the church saw the solemn pageant
appear through the church doors.
Kirst came the guards of military and
naval honor, the generals aud admirals, forming a double line lending
from the entrance to the waiting
hearse. Again the flag draped casket
with wealth of llowors, appeared and
was committed to the hearse. Tlie
President and members of cabinet,
followed arm in arm and stepped into
the waiting carriages. The relatives
entered their carriages next. Then
the squadron of troopers broke their
battalion front and wheeling into
platoons took up tiie march to the
grave.
The line of lhe funeral march from
the chinch to the cemetery was about
ono and a half miles in length. For
hours before the tune set for the commencement of funeral services at tbo
McKinley home, the streets along the
entire length of the lino of march was
crowded with spectaors, From the
gates of the cemetery to tin* doors of
tne c luroli there was on each sido of
the street an almost unbroken line of
soldiers and on all the intersecting
streets detachments of the militia
wore polled about 100 feet from the
thoroughfare on which the cortege
was to go and nobody was permitted
to pass in either direction. It wns
exactly four minutes after four when
tho funeral ear bore the remains uf
tho dead President through the gateway of his last resting place.
Twenty minutes after that time tlio
brief services at tlio vault were over,
tho members of the family and the
distinguished men of the nation who
had come so far to do him honor, hns
passed through the gale*) on theii
homeward way.

Washington, Sept. ill.���Twenty
years after lhe death of llarfield, the
nation's capitol was again in mourning; the wheels of government were
locked and the voices of people were
uplifted in prayer for the soul of Wm.
McKinley, while bis mortal romains
wero being committed to tbe tomb in
his Ohio homo. As if by common
instinct mon, women and children,
white and black, came to a sudden
halt in whatsoever they were engaged
and sat or stood as still as statues,
wheresoever thoy chanced to bo, and
tho groat city was as quiet as a prayer
meeting. To the people of Washington, the late President McKinley was
more than an official, he was their
kindly guardian and they divided
their token of respect with the whole
nation.
Justice Brewer of the United States
supreme court, delivered the principal addresses at the First Congregational church. .His key note was the
need of imposing upon all America's
the necessity of a personal respect for
tho law. It was the duty of the citizen to show by his own conduct and
example that society was the culmination of human  happiness.
London, Sept. 10.���From all parts
of Great Britain the British Colonies
and the continent nre eeing received
very many telegrams giving evidence
ot the universality of the smypathy
for the people of the United States in
thoir great affliction, The great
cathedrals of Canterbury, Edinburgh,
Dublin, Glasgow, and other cities
and the churches ot all denominations
through out, this land were lilled with
congregations, generally headed by
the lnayorB and corporations.
London, Sept. li).���A stately service,
similar in most respects to that held
in memory of Queen Victoria on the
day of hor burial was conducted in St.
Paul's cathedral today out of roapect
to the memory of the late President
McKinley, and was attended by six
thousand persons.
Lord Mayor Frank tireen, the
Sheriffs, aldermen and councillors of
the city attondod tlio services at the
cathedral accompanied by several
provincial mayors who had visited
London for the purpose of taking pnrt
in the oeromony. Dr. (Jregory and
fourteen otber clergymen were engaged in tho service. Tlio Archbishop
of Canterbury, the Most Uev. Fred
Temple, leaning feebly on the arm of
ono of the clergy, pronouced tho
nenedlction.
The hawkirs in the streots of Lon-
Montreal, Sept. 10.���As a sympathetic tribute to the memory of President McKinley, the Duko anil Duchess
of York refrained today from participation in publie functions and limited
their inoveuionts to a round of visits
to religious, charitable and educational institutions, including Mellill
University, where ench received the
honorary degree of Doctor of Law.
Large crowds aga'n assembled on the
streets to greet and cheer them when
they appeared but the general public
was excluded from the institutions
which thoy visited.
They drove to Mellill University at
HI o'clock and were met by Lord
Strathcona, chancellor, Principal
Peterson and tho entire faculty. They
were shown the convocation hall in
the Royal Victoria collego where the
conventional academic robes were
placed upon them. Lord Strathcona,
as chancellor, read a formal address
and in replying tho Duke congratulated Lord Strathcona and Sir Wm.
McDonald for tire large endowments
given by thoin to the university.
After the Duke's reply the chancellor
again addressed the Royal couple as
graduates of tho university. Tho
Royal couple then proceeded tc the
new medical hall of Mellill and assisted in its formal opening. Dr.
Craik, doan ofthe faculty, read an address nnd the Duke in replying
nraisod Lady Strathcona and Hon.
Mrs. Howard for their liberal donations to the building fund. The Dnke
and Duchess next drove to the Royal
Victoria hospital and were nhown
through the institution by Lurd
Strathcona, and H. 13. Angus, president of tho Hospital association.
From the hospital tho Royal eoup'o
drove to Laval University where the
clergy and students gave them a cordial glee ting. Archbishop llrusonesi
addressed them in a speech of welcome aud the Duko replied hrielly.
From Laval they proceeded to the
Diocesan college whero the Provincial
synod cf the Anglican church waa in
session, llisliop Sweetiuan of Toronto,
read tbo address of welcome and the
Duke responded.
Later ou in the day the Duke and
Duchess were driven to tbo Villa
Maria convont. They wore met a*.*ain
by Archbishop Pruehesi who with
Sister St. Mary Caroline, the superior,
showod them through the historical
old building. Iu Iho recreation hall
A formal address of weloome was read
by a pupil and thero was a short
musical programme. The Duke ami
Duchess of York wero accompanied on
their several visits by a number of
their suite and aside from the presentation of addresses everything was
very informal.
They conversed voiy freely with
those whom they met nt the different
place visited, and there was a general
absence ot ceremony.
The Governor Oeneral and Countess
of Minto left early iu Iho day to prepare fcr the visit to that of the Ducal
party bnt Premier Laurier remained
iu attendance and assisted al the
different informal receptions bold
during the day, aside from the cheering when the crowds caught sight of
the royal party there was no stroft
demonstration mnde and the city was
generally very quiet.
Flags at raid mast for President
McKinley weie displayed all over the
city and pictures of the dead President drapod with purple or ciepe.wore
in many windows. At St. .lames'
church nt IS o'clock special memorial
services for the dead statesman were
held and many attended.
The Duko and Duchess of Cornwall
carried fiom Montreal two handsome
presents. He was given an artistically Inscribed gold medal commemorative of tho visit from the oity and
Bhe received a jewel from the ladies
of the city. The latter is in diamonds
and pent Is and is in the shape of a
maple leaf
; At the police court yosterduy the
linger part of the morning was spent
by the opposing counsel in the oase
that was up for trial, in arguing as
to what waB meant by swearing and
creating a disturbance. Louis
Daviaux, foreman of the work on the
now post office now being erected,waa
summoned to appear on information
laid by the superintending clerk of
the works and architect, J. A. Macdonald, charging him with creating a
disturbance on Ward street. As reported in yesterday's Miner, the
charge was laid as the result of a
dispute between the architect and the
foreman as to the quality of the
material being used,which terminated
by the architect handing the foreman
a written order, telling him to consider himself dismissed, on receipt of
whioh the otber said :     "Oo   to   h--1
(Continued on Fourth Pajje. I
D��� you." The architect, howevei,
went to the police station instead,
and swore out an information which
resulted in yesterday's trial.
P. Wilson represented the Crown
and S. S. Taylor, K. C, looked after
the interest of Mr. Daviaux. The first
witness called was Mr. Macdonald
who stated that he was superintending architect; that he had had considerable friction with the foreman
right along. On the morning in question he had noticed that the stone
whioh was being used to fill in the
bottom of tlie vault, on which the
ooncrete lloor was to rest, had a large
quantity of dirt in it. He called the
foreman over, saying, "Here, this
won't do at all." He also told him
he wanted better material put iu, the
specifications calling for brokeo stone
only, otherwise he would atop the
work again. Tho foreman replied
that he would not stop for him again.
Mr. Macdonald then went into the
office and wrote out an order of dis-
issal and gave it to Daviaux, tolling
him to get off the works at once. The
foreman then retorted in the language
given above.
Mr. Taylor���Under whose orders do
you act,  Mr. Macdonald?
Mr. Macdonald���Those of Mr.
Ewart, superintendent of architectuie,
at Ottawa.
Mr. Taylor���Did you have any Instructions from Mr. Ewait to discharge Mr   Daviaux?
Mr. Macdonald���No more than what
was contained in the specifications for
the works.
The spucittcatons were then filed by
Mr. Wilson, with the consent of Mr.
Taylor, and tho paragraphs relating
to the case were read. Iu one of
theoe it was stated that tho arohitect
had the right to disehaige the foreman if he refused to obey orders or
conducted himself improperly. Another section said tnat by architect
was meant the superintendent of architecture at Ottawa or any assistant
ncting under his Distinctions.
Seveial othor witnesses from among
the workmen engaged on tbe building,
were culled, and it was shown that
Mr. Daviaux had called the words he
had umiiI to Mr. Macdonald, out very
loudly, so thnt all had heard them
and a bystander had come nearer to
them to observe what was going on,
although none of the workmen bnd
considered it of sufficient importance
to pay any attention to, as theie had
heen severnl other squabbles before in
which loud words had been spoken by
the parties on the works.
Mr. Taylor then moved for a dismissal of the case on the grounds thut
under the specifications Mr. Macdonald had no right to dii,miss the foreman unless under written instructions
from Ottawa, that under these circumstances the irritation displayed by
tho fuifii an in receiving bis dismissal
wns pcrfootty justifiable and that instead of creating a disturbance he had
expressed his indignation in very
mild torms considering the provocation.      Tho disturbance   created could
Mr. Crease said that he would prefer to hear the rest of the testimony.
Mr. Daviaux was then called on the
stand. His account of the affair was
substantially what had been given
above. When Mr. Macdonald had
called his attention to the stone and
told him it would not do he answered, " Use sense, man. We cannot pick
up the stone with pinchers ; we have
to snovol it, and a little dirt must get
in."
When Mr. Macdonald gave him his
notice of dismissal he got mad and
said some things he was sorry for as
be wus not a man who was in the
habit of swearing but "if a man jump
on your toe and you say 'get off,' and
he jump on other toe and keep on
jumpiug you must say something. I
often say darn, but damn, oh, no!
except when very mad, and that aich-
itect he make me mad. When he go
away I cool down and go on with
work. I did not have any bad feeling
left towards Mr. Macdonald. If Mr.
Macdonald and my brother fall in the
lako, I pull Mr. Macdonald ont
first."
Mr. Crease���Why?
Mr. Daviaux���Because my brother
he would iloat longer. Whon Mr.
Maodonald told mo to quit, I say,
"You go to hell." I may have said
something more but I do not remember dome so. There was not enough
dirt in those stones to feed one little
canary bird.
A long discusBion dining the taking of the evidence took nlaee between
Mr. Taylor aud Mr. Wilson as to
what was swearing. Mr. Taylor
held that a man could only swsar hy
some specific deity or peison. Mr.
Wilson Held thut the only being that
could send a man to hell was invoked
in saying ''damn" and therefore thai
whether the first part of the sentence
was swearing or not tlie latter part
undoubtedly was. Mr. Taylor could
not agree with this. Mr. Daviaux
had teen, as he thought, unwarrantably interfered with, ana used what
was not as strong language as could
be heard on the Btreet any day.
There was not as miieh excitement
caused by this alleged disturbance as
hy an ordinary dog tight. The provocation was great, ann it was only
natural that Mr. Daviaux should express his indignation in words more
forcible than were generally used.
Mr. Crease stated that he could not
agreed with Mr. Taylor as to the
language not being sweating. He
said that even Mr. Davianx acknowledged that he ought not to have
used the wotds he did. The words
were spoken loud enough, it appeared
by the evidence, to be heard by people
at the Hume hotel across lhe street.
Ue, therefore, would impose a line of
810 and costs.
Mr. Taylor said that he would re-
seivo the right to appeal the ease if
his client saw fit.

ANARCHIST MESSAGES,
Relieved an Iuipoitant Clew Has lieeu
Found.
Des Moines, la., Sept. 111. ���Ou the
person of a wounded prisoner, an
anarchist, the police found a letter
mailed from Lob Angeles two weeks
before the shooting of President McKinley, which promises to furnish a
clew to a conspiracy. The letter contains two printed circulars, a Btrange
mixture of letters and figures. They
have beon partially translated. Some
experts*,ions alrendy deciphered,
"Beats at Buffalo Expositions,"
"Whatever happens is to be repeated," "Lincoln's assassination,''
"Real anarchist known only to Lows,

Victoria, B. C, Sept. 19.��� News of
Hrown's defeat in New Westminster
was not unexpected by the ministry,
Wells who went to the Mainland during the last week of tbe campaign
having apprised them thai the light
would he very close one even if llrown
succeeded in holding the seat. Speculation has been rife all day as to the
action of Premier Dunsmuir. Politicians regard the vote as a decisive
blow at Martinism, and at the Inins-
mulr-Martin combination, and say
the Premier should either resign or
appeal to the country at once. If the
Premier had his way he would likely
follow the former course. Not accustomed to brook opposition to his
plans, Martin seems to bave anticipated that tho Premier might tako
hasty action of this kind and came
over last night and thia morning was
with him for a long time.
At noon the Premier went over to
the buildings and the executive
couneil was summoned. The result
of Joe's suggestion soon weie POen in
the summoning of Helmcken to the
caucus, the Premier evidently having determined to open negotiations
witli those whoso support ho spurned
before. Tbey are still in caucus at
tho time of the wrilinig of this despatch. It is certain tbat Helmcken
will not join forces with the present
administration.
It is regarded here as likely thut
MjBrlde will he sent fur or Curtis, or
possibly a coalition of the two if the
Government resigns. A cabinet of
young men liko Mcllride, Curtis, Tat-
low, Murphy and Helmcken or Me*
Phillips would receive strong support
here,
REMARKABLE TRIBUTE.
Over a Million Miles of Telegraph
Wires Wete Stilled Yesterday.
Chicago, 111., Sopt. IU.���One feature
that was unique in history characterized the McKinley ohseqnies. It was
tre silencing ol the telegraph. Never
lelore since electricity was first put
into use as a means of communication
from city to city and fiom country
to countiy has there taken place, It is
said, anything paiailell even In a
small way. What was done lliisgaftcr-
noon on a scale that was gigantic.
Upon orders from the officials of the
different telegraph companies, or upon
common impulse of operators were
direct instructions were uot leceivert,
the entire telegraph system of the
United States was suddenly hushed for
live minutes at 2..'10 this afternoon
the hour set for lowering the pteclous
body into the grave at Canton. At
that mement ou all the lingo network
of wires frtm the Atlantic to the
Pacific not a "sounder" in the land
gave a single tick and the grcBt
American cables were pulseless as
the corpse of the late Chief Magistrate
himself. It is estimated that fully
100,000 telegraphers thus simultaneously paid homage to the raenioiy of
McKinley. Tho total number of miles
of wire affectod was upwards of a
million and a quarter. In tbe Western Union Chicago office tho hundreds
of operators all rose at their desks
when the moment came and joining
the services sang with deep feeling
the President's hymn ''Nearer My God
to Thee." The Associated Press, lhe
Postal Telegraph Co.. the North
Ameiiean Co, and Chicago Sc Milwaukee Co , and all similar organizations
were included in the general older.

GOVERNMENT REBUKED.
The election of Mr. Thomas Gifford
and the defeat of Mr John Cunningham Hrown in New Westminster is
a rebuke to tho Dunsmuir Government
and its alliance with Mr. Joseph
Martin and his supporters which
may prove fatal to the dominant
ministry. Tne electors showed
their disapprobation of Mr. Joseph
Martin and his methods at the general elections in 1900 when the popular verdict was overwhelming anti-
Martin. Premier Dunsmuir showed
his contempt for that verdict by calling into the cabinet as finauoe minister Mr. Brown, who was Mr. Martin's chief supporter, and besides this
it is an established fact that Mr.
Dunsmuir has made Mr. Martin his
advisor iu political and other matters
and that the electors deeply resented
this was shown by their verdict at tne
polls in New Westminster ou Wednes
day. It was. indeed, a most crushing
defeat for the government. What
could have induced the Premier to
have such a political bedfellow as Mr.
Martin is past understanding. Mr.
Dunsmuir has ever been prone to have
his own way and to take the bit in
his teeth. As the possessor of a large
fortune he has had for some years full
sway with it has aud managed his affairs successfully. In an endeavor to
carry the methods of conducting his
private affairs into the concerns of the
province he has split on the rock of
public opinion. In carrying on his
own affairs his employes were his
servants and were compelled to obey
his commands and respect his wishes,
but as the premier of tbe Piovince he
was a public official and theoretically,
at least, the servant of the people and
chosen to carry out their wishes. Unfortunately he forgot this fact and
thought, he was the master with tbe
result that he finds himself iu a most
awkward position with a crisis and a
dissolution of his ministry staring
him in the face. The dispatches yesterday mentioned that he would probably adv'so the Lieutenant-Governor
to ask Mr. Joseph Martin to form a
government. This would be but another attempt to go contrary to the
expressod will of the people and
would only end in disaster to the
premier and his poltieal friends.
A poll of the house, made by prominent politicians, gives the opposition
16, the government 14. and doubtful 7,
and when the House moets the Government should be defeated.
It is nothing short of a pity that
the governments of the Province could
not be organized on some basis tbat
would be lasting. Their laok of stability and the change of polioy put
into effect by each exerts a bad influence ou business and industrial
affairs, which should uot bo tho case.
What is most needed is a strong man
for Premier who with his weight and
wisdom would be able to gather a
ministry around him that would command the respect of the eleotois so
that they might De retained in otlice
for a reasonable time instead of having the oountry distubred and business affairs rendered uncertain by disruptions every few months. The
people are weary and disgusted with
the present condition of affuits and
desire nothing so much as a stable
government, but no ministry can be
sound and enduring that nas any
truce or savor of Martinism iu it.
KNIGHTHOOD IN  .'LOWER.
King Edward during the visit of
the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall
and Y'ork haB been graciously pleased
to oonfor honors on nine of the residents of Canada. There will be disappointment in certain quarters over
the few that have been named for preferment by the king,as it was thought
that the premiers of the several
provinces and tho mayors of the leading cities would have knlghlhood con*
furred upon them. It is said to have
been on tbe cards that Premier* Duns
muir would receive the honor of being
made a knight and that, when this
had becorao an accomplished fact he
would havo been willing to retire to
the shades of private life wi*h the
credit of having been t\ premier of the
Province of liritisli Columbia and the
tight to be ever afterwards called Sir
Juines Dunsmuir. The King has
ruled otheiwise and he will probably soon bave   to   return   to   private

life and be satisfied with the pi
title of Jim Dunsmuir. Then there is
Frank Fletcher, mayor of Nelson.
Doubtless, be too, had his dreams of
being called Sir crank Fletcher and
living to an honorable old age to be
always called Sir Frank, but if be
had such aspirations tbe annonnce-
ment that only nine Canadians bave
heen honored will shatter this dream,
and ho will declare that the "saddest
words of tongue or pen are tbose said
words it might have been."
Four politicians were honored, these
being Sir John lloyd, chancellor of
Ontario; Louis Jette, Lieutenant-
Governor of Cjuebec; Joseph Pope,
under secretary of state; Oliver Uow-
land, mayor of Toronto, wbo was the
only mayor honored.
The universities were well recognized, Principal Grant, of Cjueens;
Principal Matbieu, of Laval, and
Principal Peterson, of Mellill, being
recognized.
The railway interests were recognized and Mr. Thomas <). Shaugnessy,
president of the Canadian Pacific tail-
way, was made a batohelor knight.
Out of compliment to the Governor-
lleneral, doubtless, bis private seeretary, Major F. S. Maude, was hon*
ored, by being made a companion of
the Order of St. Michael and St.
George. The Major is a man of
more than ordinary ability, is pleasing peisonally and these qualities,
too, assisted him in obtaining the
coveted honor.
King Kdward evidently does not
believe in too general a distribution
of knighthoods, as It would tend to
cheapen the distinction given by them
and so very wisely restricted the number in Canada to nine. It is singular
tn note, however, that not one of the
members of the Canadian contingents,
who fought bo bravely in Soutn
Africa have been rewarded with
knighthood, but doubtless Ilis
Majesty, In his wisdom, thought the
promotions and the honors which
they obtained already sufficient recompense for the loyalty, patriotism and
gallantry which they on all ocasions
displayed.
ain I some of the larger cities the police
have their "sweat boxes" and othei
appliances whicli they use to compel
confessions from prisoners. Nothing,
however, can be found on the statute
books authorizing these and they are
palpably and plainly illegal and not
in consoance with the spiiit of the
times. The law of Ihe state cf New
York says that murderers shall upon
conviction of murder in tlio first
degree be electrocuted, but nowhote
does it give the police or any other
olbicals the right to torture in order
to extort confession. Czolgosz is certain to be electrocuted, but he should
not be tortured in advance. The extreme penalty of the law should be
sufficient to satisfy even the most
savage.
PUT TO TORTURE.
It is said that Czolgosz, thc assassin
of President McKinley, was subjected
by the police of lluffalo to what is
known as the 'third degree" of torture in order to induce hira to make
a confession. It was held by tbe
police tbat the end justified the
means, bnt the system of torturing
prisoners it had boen thought, had
long since beeu abandoned by civilized nations. It was found that those
tortured were often willing to confess
to anything in order to secure a cessation of the agonizing pains to which
they wero subjected and would ack-
nowleilge'atiythingthat their tortures
suggested. In this way persons perfectly innocent were made to seem to
be accessories to infamous crimes and
were convicted and executed on test!-
uouy wrung from tbe victims of torture. Czolgosz deserves to be executed
for his ciiures and certainly will be,
and this should satisfy justice. If be
has accomplices tho machiney at the
command of justice in New York
should be sufficient, without resorting
to the Tenth Century and clumsy
method uf torture, to find out who
tbey arc. That the officers of the law
in Ilulfalc should have resorted to
sueh a barbarous and obsolete method
in the case of Colzgosz is nothing but
a re nection on their ability and thai t
humanity, and their actiou is altogether indefensible. It is only second
in barbarity ti tbo method pursued in
the Southern States of lynching
negroes ai tested for crimes. It Is a
praetice which is not sanctioned by
the laws and is plainly a breach of
the constitution, which declares that
no cruel or unusual punishment shall
be Inflicted   un   any   per ton,   but  in
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The London Lancet says; Chemical
analysis would assign practical;)' no
nutritive value to the juicy fruits, for
they consist of little more than a
cellulose envelope containing a solution cf sugar, the amount vaiying
about 17 per cent., as with grapes, to
about 1.4 percent., as with lemons.
Tho amount of water in fruit is con-
siderable. In watermelons it is no
less than Sir. per cent., in grapes SU
per cent, in oranges St; per cent., in
lemons 90 per oent., Is peaches 88 per
cent., in apples 8'; pet cent., in pears
84 per cent., in plums 80 per cent.,
in nectarines 83 per cent., and in
strawberries DO per cent., not a fruit
in the whole category containing less
than 80 per cent. The irrestible conclusions, considering these facts, is
that fruit playB an important role in
diet as a thirst quencher. Ortaiuly
when fruits are freely represented in
the diet less fluid requires to be consumed, and fruits would appear to be
endowed with a subtle, inimitable
llavor which is ample inducement to
imbibe fluid in this most wholesome
form.
F. G. Fauquier, the ex-go! "orotnis-
sioner found guilty of Bi^uijpropriat-
ing government funds, was sentenced
on WedueBday to two yeais imprisonment, wnich was not a heavy sentence
for the crimes which he committed.
Two years, however, snould be sutlici-
ent to show the ex-commissioner the
error of his ways, and by that time
he will doubtless have impressed
deeply upon his mind the fully of
treating government funds as his own
and when the prison gates aro opened
to give him liberty he should emerge
from them a wiser and a better man.
The wonder is that a man of Faquier's
intelligence and ability should have
ever given way to temptation. Doubtless ut lirst he took the money in-
strusted to his caro with the intention
of returning it, and kept on taking
more till his larcenies aggregated
more than he was able to repay. In
tbis way many a man, wbo had ,,o intention at first of stealing, has eventually found himself wearing the
motley garb of a convict. It was
probably his weakness rather than a
deliberate ml ont ion to steal, that lead
to his downfall, but the law does not
recognize the means by which a man
becomes guilty of a felony, but rather
the fact that be is guilty.

(SPBCIAL TO THIS MINEIl.)
Grand Forks, 11. C, Sept. 19.-
Antliony McMillan, mauaglrg direo-
tor of tlio Snow Shoe Gold-Copper
Mines, and J W. Astley, chit), engineer, arrived here today ami held a
conference wt~ S.H. 0. Miner. Jay V.
Graves, and A. C. Flummerfelt of the
Uiaoby Smelter. Subsequently Mr.
McMillan said: "We are considerin*.'
the question of erecting- our own
smelter or the alternative of sending
oui ores to a custom smelter. Data
Is being gathered but no decision will
he. reached until the arrival from
England of (1. S. Waterlow, one of
the directors. Some time ago the oro
in sight iu our mines waa estimated
at live hundred thousand tons but
this figure, owing to recent development worlt, is far below the reality.
A large open quarry, all in ore, was
started a few weeks ago. The mines
are locatod in Phoenix enmp less than
two miles from Phoenix. The company which owns four claims was successfully floated in London tnis
spring. Tho capital is two hundred
and fifty thousand pounds. It is considered likely that the Snow Shoe
smelter will be built here on a site
adjoining the Gianby smelter.
A number of men who had been laid
oil at the Eva mine at Camborne
came in the Robson tiain last evening. They stated that there was but
one man left at work on  the mine.

JBAKING POWDER
A TWENTY CENTURY
.      DISCOVERT,
The following items concerning the
Slocun aro culled from The New Denver Ledge-:
The electric ore finder whioh has
been so successfully used nt various
properties in this division, is now al
work at the Rueo and Ruth.
Four mi'ti wore put to work on the
Black Hawk and Daisy group, in the
Ten Mile Olinop, last week by \V. E.
lloio, for Ernest Mansfield.
Work was started thiB week on a
30n loot tunnel to bo run on tlni
Legal, a promising Lemon creel; prop-
uitv owned by W. S. Johnson and A.
R. Bolderston.
Mike MeAndrews is Working on the
Linnet, near Cody. Mike refused
8-..0 10 for this property last summer,
anil he fully expects that it will make
a mine next winter.
Tlio llewett, the big dry ore mine
shipping from Silverton, sent out six
carloads of ore last week. 'The farther
this property is developed the better it
Is proving. It is now looked upon as
one of the big things of the camp.
(Ireat as has boon the record made
by the Arlington mino in tbo past
year, it is said by those in a position
to know that the real value of the
property has not been realized even by
the owners themselves, and that years
heuoe the output of this greatesi
silvo- mino in 11. C. will astonish the
mining world.
The work of hauling the ore from
the Arlirgton mine numps to Klouan
City was started the past week. W.
C. E. Koch brought in 12 head of
horses last week from Washington to
do the hauling. The Nelsou smelter
byught the dumps outright, paying
something like 811,01)0 for the 2,000
tons.
Tho big Galena tunnel being driven
on the Last Chance to tap what is
known as Ibe Oalena ledgo at a vertical depth of 1,000 feet, hns been
driven 1,800 leet and is expected to
oncounter the ledge almost, any day.
It in tho greatest tunnel project that
has heen undertaken on any Slocan
property.
Kaslo's copper mine, tho True Blue,
is proving of more than ordinary importance. At a depth of 140 feet thc
ledge Is nine feet wide with a paystreak of clean ore 10 to IS inches
wide. This ore runs 2,1 pei cent,
copper, and assays from the remaining portion of the ledge give 1 per
cent, copper.
The Reoo mine, at Sandon, a property that was mado famous a few
years ago as the producer of the richest galena ore in the world, when a
shipment of 17 tona netted $17,000, is
again to the front with what is said
to be a bettor showing of o.:e than it
has had in its histoiy. The shoot of
ore averages eight inches in width, is
120 feet long and has been proved
continuous to a depth of 130 feet.
When the rawhiding season opens
shipments from this property will be
resumed.
W. A. Coplcn is again in oharge of
the mineral exhibit at Spokane's big
fair. Speaking of British Columbia's
exhibit Mr. Coplcn says: "Hritish
Columbia is well represented. There
is ore from the Slooan, Rossland, Fort
Steele, Similkameen, Summit, Ainsworth, Kamloops and Vancouver, aud
to add to the numerous beautiful
things is a number of choice oabinets
that are the pride of some of tho
citizens of this city. Among those
worthy of careful attention is E. U.
Van Osdel's made up of both rare
and common minerals, all classified
It is a valuable collection for study
as well as for mere inspection.
Another is owned by 0. P. More, containing some pretty crystals and rich

Chas. Dempster, of Rossland, was
in Nelson yesterday on his way tp the
Blooan-Republlc mine, Mr. Dempster
stated' that last week a party of the
directors of the company from Michigan, had inspected the property, and
were much pleased witn its appearance, lt bad been decided to build a
wagon road from the mine to Slocan
Ciiy, a distance of live miles on which
work was to   be started immediately.
A pack train of supplies was taken
out yesterday to the Star claim at the
head ol' illaglf creek, which Oscar
Johnston and his brother have started
to develop.
Shipments of oro from the Mother
Lode mine will commenoe arriving at
tbe Hall Mines smelter about Monday. It is expected that about twenty-
live L-.ins a day will be shipped, Tlio
ore is well suited for Iluxing.

Yesterday afternoon the business
men of Nelson paid a graceful tribute
to the late lamented President McKinley by closing their places of business. It will long be remembered as
a notable occasion as not only tho
stores dealing in staples were closed
bnt the fruit and tobacco stores which
usually keep open no matter what
happens were closed up tight. The
action of the businessmen was taken
as a sincere compliment by the citi
zens of tho United States in Nolson,
and will help to cement that kindly
feeling between tlio two nations
which has boen engendered during
the bereavements whioh both nations
have suffered this year.
With the coming of winter a number
of men around town have beon endeavoring to lay in a supply of winter
firewuod. Across the lane there were
numerous complaints during the past
weak of men cutting wood on private
land and paying little attention to
tho protests of the owners. One indignant rancher living opposite Nelson,
is reported to have chased a party who
had felled some of his best trees, off
tho premises with a shot gun. A lady
who was alonu at home tbat day on
another ranch, seeing men cutting
down trees and transporting them In
tne shape of cordwnod on to BOOWfl
went down to remonstrate and was
told to go to a place where wood is
not supposed to be in demand. Along

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases the heating capacity of the stove, and in connection with the deflector ring forces the
heat to the floor. The base is hot, the floor being warmer than w'th a
base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment takes in the cold air through a duel at the
rear of the fire pot, the heated air being discharged in a circle at the top
of fire pot, over fire, thus consuming all the gases and products of combustion. It can be operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently, by a screw register in the rear of base, insuring complete
control of the stcve with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the back takes the cold air from
the floor and ejects it, intensely heated, through the top adi'ing greatly
to lhe heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according to directions we guarantee it to
consume all the gas contained in soft coil, thus deriving the benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly lemarkab'e saving of
fuel over any other stove on the market. Tho stove will hold fire from
24 to 48 hours without attention.
