NORTHERN PACIFIC.
An Injunction Against Retiring Preferred Stuck Dissolved.
New York, Deo. 27.- Justice Scott,
in the Bupreme court today, dissolved
the injunction obtained by Wolff
Bros, and others, restraining the
Northern Vnoiflo railway from retiring the preferred Btock of $75,000,000
on January 1st.
Justice Soott says the company had
the positive right, at its option, to retire the preferred stook at par, and
that its directors weie authorized to
exercise that option on behalf of the
corporation.
He added: "The plaintiffs have no
concern with what may be done with
the stuok of the company after the
preferred shares have been retired, or
in consequence of such retirement,
nor are they in a position tu question
the manner in which the company
proposes to raise the money to retire
their shares, so long as they are aB-
sured of the par value thereof. Even
if the defendant's right to retire the
plaintiff's stock was less clear than I
deem it to be, I still hesitate to permit
the temporary Injunction to stand.
The plaintiff's, though holding preferred stock up to a considerable
amount, really bold but a small percentage of this class of stock, and of
course a much smaller percentage of
the total capital stock of the company.
"The claim is that they are entitled
to an opportunity to subscribe for the
convertible ueriiflcates representing
common stock to be issued in place of
the preferred stock. Upon what that
claim is based is not made very apparent, but assuming that it ia well
founded, no reason is suggested why
they cannot be fully and amply compensated in an aotion for damages for

Tbe matter in dispute is an aftermath of the fight ot last summer to
obtain control cf the Northern Pacific
According to a statement issued a
short time ago by J. J. Hill, the
Union Pacific attempted to get control
of the Northern Pauitio by purchasing
shares in Europe and New York.
When the Hill and Morgan Interest
ascertained this they bought preference shares to thc extent of about 810,-
000,000. With these converted into
common stock by the payment of par
they had tho control, without these
they had not. Provision was then
made to retire these shares ncfore
they would need them for a voto in
auy general meeting that should
occur. The Hiil and Morgan people
had therefore given notice and now
desire to carry out their original intentions.
Washington, Deo. 27.���The gathering of German warsbps in the vicinity
of Venezuela and the presenoe in tbe
same locality of many American,
British, French and other foreign
warships, is directing attention to the
imminence of the naval demonstration
Germany is about to make against
Venezuela. Thus far, the German
government has not made known the
details of her proposed move, tbe
official communications to the United
States being confined to an enquiry as
to the attitude of tbis government on
the question of a demonstration in
view of the purpose on^the part of the
Uermans not to acquire any permanent foothold in Venezuela. The
answer of this government was entirely satisfactory to the German
authorities, who, since havo proceeded
with the execution of tbeir plans for
coercing Venezuela. It is said to be
probable that the flrst move by Ger
many will be tbe establishment of a
blockade of Venezuelan ports, so as
to prevent tbe introduction of food
products into Venezuela and thus
starve the beseiged into submission.
Venezuela, it is said is entirely dependent on the outside world for its
supply of corn, which is a staple
among tbe Venezuelans. The Germans are expeoted to ocenpy one or
more ol the main ports of Venezuela,
probably f.aguayra and Maracaibo.
Od tbe part of Venezuela, it is semiofficially understood that President
Castro has made known that he is
prepared for any eventuality.
The reliance of Venezuela appears
to be on tbe practical difficulties Germany will encounter. Venezuela herself, it is asserted, has no need of outside supplies while corn ia much used,
in an emergency there are many
other cereals whicb can be put to use.
With refereuoe to German occupation of one or moie ports.it is thought
to be likely that Venezuela will rely
on harassing the invaders. The fresh
water supply of Laguayra and Maracaibo is drawn from interior streams
und lakes and these are expected to be
out off. The interior of Venezuela is
regarded as safe and it is said tbat it
would take at least 200,000 German
soldiers to make headway through lhe
wild and uneven countiy against
guerilla, taotics.
There appears also to be much
reliance of the part of Venezuela iu
the sentiment and sympathy which
can be aroused within the United
Slates when a Euiopean invader is
actually operating on American soil
and Vonezucla issues a declaration of
war. Venezuela, it is understood,
also relies largely on the fact that
foreign capital is invested in tho large
Veuezuolan ports and would be the
heaviest sufferer from any destruction
wrought by the Germans.
The German minister to Venezuela
is still nt his post and there is some
hope that be may still bring about a
settlement, Tbe outlook lor a oash
settlement, however, is rather meagro
since tho Venezuelan treasury is
empty and all of the Venezuelan
officials are on half pay. The presence
of the North Atlantic squadron and
mony other American warships in
West Indian waters is the source of
much speculation in Germany and
Venezuela.

WANTS A MATCH.
Jeffries Will Give Any of the Heavyweights a Chance.
Chicago, Dec. 27.���Bill Delaney,
manager of Champion Jeffries,
arrived in tlie city today bound for
New York with the intention of inducing some of the leading heavyweights to try their lack with Jeffries.
Ilelauey said: ''My visit to New
York is solely for tbe purpose of signing some good man to fight Jeffries.
Every possible inducement will be
offered Fitzsimmous to draw him into
another match. Bob is tbe man the
public is anxious to have against tbe
champion. I don't know whether he
has retired for good or not. If lie
does not want to figbt again, be has a
perlect right to stay ont of the game.
All he has to do is to tell me so and
wc shall uot trouble him further. I
bave made arrangements to hold a
sort of reception in New York next
Monday afternoon between the hours
of 4 ano 0 o'clock. All the leading
heavyweights or their representatives
will lie requested to attend and make
bids for a figbt with Jeffries. I do
not mean to play any favorites and
tbe roan that gets up his forfiet
money for a match flrst will be
Jeffries' next opponent. Madden will
have to look elsewhere for a match on
behalf of Denver Ed. Martin. While
Jeffries dees not draw the color line
strictly, yet he refuses to box a negro
for the championship. Whoever
Jeffries may be matched with, the
contest will undoubtedly take place
at 'Frisco. It is the only locality
where a big fight can be brought off
in absolute safety."

and,   therefore,   a   statement  coming
from   him   should he reliable and can
be depended on as truthful   and accurate.     In the extracts from tho bulletin    published   yesterday '   from   Mr.
Ilurr's letter it will be seen   that  the
discoverers of thc richer placers   with
the   most   primitive   form   of  sluice,
when short of provisions and near the
end of the season, made   at the rate of
(38 per day and   report   that there are
claims   both   above   and below   them
which are just as   ricli as those which
they took up.     Thoy also report   that
there aro considerable areas on Fraser
cieek   and   elsewhere   in the vicinity
of the find which have never been prospected.      Twenty five   dollars   a   day
diggings, Kith   such disadvantages as
the     discoverers   worked     under,   ia
pretty   good   ground as it means that
one man oould take out $5,000   in   200
days.    Then, too, rich pockets will be
found from which the returns will   lie
much larger.
The outlook is that all the branches
of tho Horselly river will be
thoroughly prospected nud considerable ground worked during the com ���
ing year, and that much gold dust
will be extracted. One advantage is
that the bedrock la only covered by
two to three feet of alluvial, which
makes the ground "pour nien'H diggings." This means thnt the pay dirt
can be reached with the minimum
amount of labor. Of lO'irse too little
work has been done to demonstrate
the extent of the placers, but it is
likely from the information furnished
by Mr, llurr that tbey are extensive.
One favorable feature of the new
gold fields Is their Bccesihilily.ns they
are only 140 to 170 miles from Ash
oroft, whicb is on the main line of
tbe Canadian Pacific railway. Ilecause
of the accessibility of the the fields a
small army ol prospect'jts will go
tllPro just as soon ns tbe snow melts in
the spring and doubtless some new
and important discoveries will he
made.
From the fact that quartz is found
adhering to the gold tbe ledges from
which the gold originally o'inie cannot
bo far away from the placers and
dcubtess some valuable lode discoveries will be made during the next year
The field certainly seems to bo worth
adventuring    in    fur   those   who   art
used to prospecting,
one to the other it has lust nothing of
its vividness in the frequent tellings. ]
The treasure !s supposed to he the I
funds of the Costa Bleat] government!
whioh were token to the island and |
buried during a revolution. Subsequently the island was used as a penal
colony aud one of the prisoners found
the hidden wealth while serving out
a sentence there. After his release
und when the island had been abandoned for penal purposes he set out
with some companions tu secure the
wealth and the vessel was wrecked
and all but one on board weie drowned and the saved man was the sole
custodian of the secret of where the
treasure was burieo. Owing to various unfortunate circumstances he was
unable to go to the island to take
thc treasure from its subterranean
hilling place aud when he was dying
be whispered the secret and gave a
diagram showing the location of the
money to a friend who befriended him
in his extremity. Several expeditions
have been outfitted in Sao Francisco
in the lust 40 years to find the treasure, but they always returned empty-
handed. The same experience awaits
the expedition whicb is soon to start
from San Francisco and the one which
has its home in Victoria. The Cocos
island treasure is probably a verification of the old axiom that those who
hide find. Thc paities who secreted
the treasure on the island doubtless
afterwards secretly removed it. Even
if there was a treasure there it would
be hke hunting for a needle in a hoy-
stack to find it, for the island is one
of considerable size. The Cocos island
treasure scheme has been used so often
as a means by which seedy adventurers have succeeded in raising the
wind thnt it ought to be played out by
this time.

Accidents are frequent at mines and
it is often that it is some hours after
their occurrence before a physician
can bo sumomned. In the meanwhile
the wounded are oompclled to suffer
from the want of. surgical attention.
In older that the injured may be
made comfortable pending the arrival
of the surgeon, Brat aid conveniences
should be provided at every mine.
There shuuld in addition to this be
one or two persons about the mine
who should be trained so as to apply
properly the flrst aid to the wounded.
In this way a great deal of suffering
would be prevented to the wound and
injured while awaiting regular surgical attention. First aid appliances
sufficient to provide for a dozen injured men would cost hut a small sura.
The suffering of severely wounded
men, who have to be removed long
distances over rough roads and trails
to places wheie they may receive
proper atteution, is considerable, and
the first aid appliances should be supplemented with an apparatus in the
form of stretcher provided with
springs so as to lessen the jars.
Severely wounded men are now transported in any sort of a vehicle and the
jolts cause the wounded great agony.
The present system of tnking care pf
injured miners is miserably inefficient, lhe mining journals in the western part of the United States arc making a crusade in favor of more efficient
aid and care for thom immediately
after accidents occur. This is a matter which both the mine owners and
the miners should take up. It should
also receive the attention of the legislature at its forthcoming session.

Jay P. Graves, who owns tbe controlling interest in the Rockland
group of eight claims on Eight-Mile
creek in the Slocan, in a recent letter
stated that it was not the intention to
construct a smelter for the Bookland
group uniil the properties shall have
first been developed sufficiently to
prove their merits.
At the record office yesterday the
following entries were made: Location, Copper Bell, on Farrett ereelt,
by il. C. Colo; a certificate of work
was granted to C. Creamer, ou the
Rosalie; transfer by C. A Campbell

Late advices from tbe Payne are to
the I effect that the strike recently
made there is a very important one.
In the winze between No. 5 and No.'8
levels two and a half feet of solid ore
has been encountered. Thc winze has
opened this up for a depth of 25 feet
a'.d the workings are ttill in ore.
The ore is up to tbe average found in
the mine and goes about 125 ounces
silver and 00 per oent. lead to Ihe ton.
This find will give the Payne a new
lcat.6 of productive life.
^V. Harvey secured an option on
Monday on the molybdenite proporty
o( VV. Brasch's, ostensibly for English parties, says the Slooan Drill.
The papers call for the payment of
$2,000 cash at the end of three months,
or $4,600 at thu termination of five
months. Work must he prosecuted
diligently on the property and no oro
will be allowed to De taken off the
ground. A 100-pound sample is to be
sent to the Old Country for analysis.
During the coming week activity
-ill be resumed at the Silver Hill
mine. For several months the con-
stiuction of the tramway from the
mine to the Crawford Hay road has
been in progress and as the tramway
will be completed on January Itt it
will be started to work handling ore
on that day. Tho mine has contract* d
to ship 15,000 tons of ore to the Trail
smelter. A number of teams have
been purohased and within a few
days the ore should begin passing
through this city on its way to Trail.
It is claimed that a two bono team
will be able to haul seven tons of
ore over the road without much difficulty. Tho intention is to crowd the
shipments once they are started.
The oond on the Tamarsc grcup,
Springer creek, has bean lifted and
the Teeds turned over to the company
and recorded, s.iys the Slocan Drill.
John F, Holden, the managei, came
in from Spokane on Friday and
wound up the business with the resi-
cut owners. The payment made was
90 per oent. one payment having been
previously made. The full bund called for rlS,000, to that the payment
just made represented considerable
money. Tbe owners of the property
weie Con Fielding. George Henderson
and Neil (ielhing, while the purchasers aro known as tile Tauiarac
Mining and Development Syndicate of
Spokane, One small shipment haB
been made from the Taraarae by the
bonders the returns being 172 ounces
silver and 17 per cent. lead. Four
drifts bave been opened up on the vein
and each is showing ore, thore being
sufficient in sight to more than repay
the purchase price.
Mr. Holden has nhut down the
Tamarac till spring, when a force of
20 men will be put on. The company
will also build half a mile of wigon
road i to connect the mine with tho
Springer road. By the lifting of the
bond on the Tamarac an increased
feeling of confidence has been imparted to the camp. ���'
SWEE.   OAPORAL   CIGARETTES
for if the zinc is saved tbe silver is
lost and to save the silver when zinc
is present requires additional trouble
to that when there is none. Some
smelters exact a penalty when the zinc
runs over 3 per cent.
Smelter men claim that the present
rates afford no margin of profit���that
it is merely a question of whether it
costs more to rnn at a small loss than
to close down, whieh, when interest
on capital is considered, becomes an
expensive step. The sirelters therefore, will now adopt a system of payment which will eliminate the element of specnlation from the puiohase
of ore. Heretofoie the ore was paid
for at the rate prevailing in New
York on the day on which it arrives
at the smelter. They took the chances
on the rise or fall of silver and lead
from that date until the actual product was maiketted. Hereafter tie
smelters will pay only 90 per cent, ot
the purchase price on thut day and
the balance 90 days after the ore has
been received. If silver goes up the
mine owner gains; if it goes down
he suffers loss he would not have
under the old system. Thc rates made
for smelting are based for comparison
ou tbo price of lead in January last.
Then it sold for ��18 per ton, now it
is selling lor about ��10. As the price
of lead advances a proportionate
amount is added to the smelter rate so
tbat when lead reaches the old price
of ��10 tbe rates will be back to the
old figures. The new rates are therefore a concession to the mine owners
of a temporary nature only, provision
being made that any advance in the
price of mineral shall accrue to the
smelters until the conditions of January last are again reached.
