Rraneh of S. P. O. A. Organized at
Meeting Last Night.
At the meeting called by Mr.
South, secretary of the British Columbia Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals last evening only
about a dozen were present and no
ladies or any of the city clergymen.
Mayor Fletcher was appointed
chairman, and after a short speech
dealing with the objects of the society
called on Mr. South for an explanation df the best method to pursue in
the formation of a branch society.
Mr. South, in replying said that the
socioty   was   1111 eting with great suo-
eess in its work finding   a ready sympathy from all classes.      Many people
thought that there   was  little cruelty
practised on tne members of the dumb
creation in  the   city,   but   that  was
thought almost every where the society
had   been   formed,   but the   members
would   be   surprised   when they came
to look around to find how many evils
existed   in   this   way   that they had
never  noticed   before.     Among    the
most common forms was the abuses of
horses,     where    misfit   collars   weie
put on them and caused sore shoulders
turning tbem out to starve so  as  not
to have the   bother   of   shooting  and
disposing   ol   tbem   when   they   had
outlived their usefulness;   packing of
poultry in a cruel   manner   for   shipment and many other forms of ciuelty
that came principally   from   thoughtlessness.     He said to give an example
of how the object of the   society   was
prevention of cruelty and   rot   persecution   of individuals, he would state
that the list of cases   taken up by the
society   in   Victoria   in   tbe   last   12
months had   been aifl of which but 30
had been brought to court,in Vancouver in the same period 108,   of  which
20 had been brought   to court,  and in
Nanaimo   in   three   months 12(1 eases
with   none   in   court.      It had   been
found thnl in every instance tbe forming of a branch of the. society had had
a   powerful   deterrent    effect   where
cruelty to animals was concerned
On motion of Melville Parry,
seconded by E. C. Troves, it was
unanimously decided that a branch of
the S. P. G. A. should be formed in
tbe city to be known as the Nelson
district branch. On motion of J. A.
Turner, seconded by Sheriff Tuck,
Mayor Fletcher whs elected president
unanimously. The other nominations
for olllcors, all of whom were elected
by acclamation were: 1st Vico-Presi-
dent, Sheriff Tuck, 2nd Vice-President, E. 0, Tr-aves; secretary and
Counsel, A.M. Johnson; Treasurer,
J. A. Turrer; Executive committee.

Louisville, Ky, Nov 12���A thorough
investigation is being made into the
details of the alleged attempt of
Newell C. Rathbone to defraud the

dress it in is own clothes, place it in
a Jeffersonvile Indiana hotel and then
burn the hotel in the belief that the
body wonld be ldentiod as his and the
insurance money paid.
The police believe that, the body of
the man found was that of a murdered
roan. Having, as they believe, established the idenl.'ty of the supposed
murdered man the detectives are now
busy developing the case against
Rathbone has confessed that he
planned to defraud an insurance company, and today admitted according
to the autborities, that the man who
accompanied him to the hotel in
Jefforsonrille, Ind, and was found
dead the next day, was Chas. Good-
man who is said to have come from
Evansvillo, Ind.
Chief of Detectives Sullivan and
Chief Applegate and Coroner Coots of
Jeffersonville, interviewed Rathbone
today. Rathbone listeoed as one by
one the circumstances which tbe
police regard as proofs of his guilt
were laid before him bv Chief Sulli
van. According to the officers, Rath
bone suddenly sprang up and walking
hastily to a window looked out for a
few minutes. Then turning like an
animal at bay he faced the crowd of
men in the room and asking in a
shaking voice: "WhBt is the punish
ment for an offence of this kind in
Indiana? Docs the death penalty exist
"Never mind about the penalty
Rathbone," said Capt. Sulliavn.
"What we are interested in is the
name of the dead man. '
For a moment Rathbone looked at
the group of faces before him and
then said. "You arc on the right
track. Goodman is the name of the
dead man. I met him in front of tho
hotel and determined to keep him
drunk for several days and then fix
When questioned further Rathbone
denied having given the dead man

made use of chloroform. He then
refused to go back to Indiana without

London. Nov.12.���Referring to Lord
Salisbury's speech last Saturday night
at the Guildhall, Truth says: "The
careless composition of the speech of
the premier which contained some
singularly obscure sentences has re-

believing that he no longer takes an

From the statistics of tho metal imports and exports of Canada for
August, 1(101, appearing in yesterday's
issue, an interesting collation of facts
may he made which will throw considerable light en the lead sitnation
with the possibilities open to Canadian enterprise. The month of
August may reasonably he taken aB an
average ot the year, if anything the
imports of lead paints are apt to be
rather less than the average, owing to
stocks being laid in early in tbe year
for summer business.
The imports of lead in all its forms
in August amounted to 2,055,845 lbs.,
nnd the exports 3,111,874 lbs., show
ing a surpus ot 1,050,529 lhs.or a consumption of about two-thirds of the
The lowest valuation put on any
of the lead imported���pigs, blocks,
and scrap���Is a little more than three
cents a pound. The quantitv of crude
lead entering into the lead products
would be at least as heavy as that
product. Canada therefore paid for
crude lead in August 8ol,G00.35. Had
the Canadian mines supplied that
they would have received this sum
and have had a surplus of l,O!i0,52U
pounds to sell. This would have
netted on an average one and one half
cents a pound or (15,847.93, making a
total of $77,508.?8. What they actu
ally received was one and one half
cents a pound on 3,111,874 pounds or
SUi.iiils.il. Therefore had Canada
supplied its own market with lead
and exported the balance the mine
owners, smelters and refiners would
have had to distribute among them
$14,904.24 more than they had or
J179,90fl.H8 on the year's business���
and this without the finished product
costing the consumer any more.
Considering tbe aggregate of business possible in the manufacturing
departments the amount paid for the
lead goods imported was 981,010, the
duty pain amounted to 80,191,or a to
tal of $87,810. The crude lead ore for
this cost 801.000.25, leaving a uianu<
factoring business to be done of 825,
149.7S a month or 8301,797.00 a year,
and this also without the finished
product oostinrg the oonsumar more
than at present. This does not take
into account 80,557 worth under the
heading "not elsewhere provided for"
on which $2,200.10 duty was paid
making a total for August of $7,823.10
or $93 877.92 for the year and very
probably pait of this could be manufactured in Canada. This will make
a grand aggregate of the amount of
business possible for the manufacturer
of $95,074.92.
These figures do not take Into
account the export business in lead
manufactures that it is possible to
carry on in Canada. The price of lead
we nave calculated in Canada on tin
basis of three cents a pound. This is
lower than the London price whlcli
usually runs to the equivalent of
from $02.50 to 805 per ton. The cost
of labor and operating expenses in
parts of Canada are very favorable anil
there seems no obstacle in the way of
entering upon the world's market
with lend manufactures. Considering
the ratio   of   consumption   to produo
tion, of evmy three pounds produced
two pounds vnuld go to supply the
Inline market anil one pound for ex-
poll, this would make the average
price of the lead ponliieed 2J��� ;ents a
pound. Could thu desirable conditions
be realised that the home mines would
supply the home market the obtaining ol suoh a price would immediately
give impetus to the mining industry.
Should the total production reach
4 000|U00 pounds a month the average
price would be brought down to 2}��
cents or if still further increased to
6,001),000 pounds a month, the price
realised would lie 2 1-111 cents a pound
which would make the difference
between profit Bnil loss on a great

The had production for August was
in round numbers equal to 50 tons per

none more so than that made by the

not sending any more delegations to
Washington, but thai he would not be
surprised, even within a few years, if
delegations were Sent from Washington to Ottawa seeking for reciprocity.
Having learned the lesson from our
friends to the south, ihe premier continued, we will receive them in the
proper way with every possible
In theso few words Sir Wilfrid
struck the keynote and Voiced the in-
lependent spirit of Canada, wh'ch has
learned the lesson of self reliance and
is now able, thanks to the energy of
her people.to stand alone. Within the
past few years, owing to a beneficient
nnd well adjusted tariff, her manufacturing industries have grown to
large proportions. Take mining
machinery, for instance: A few years
since all the machnery of this kind
used in Canada was manufactured in
the United States. A tariff on tlm
class Of machinery forced two of the
largeBt manufacturers of mining
machinery in the United States to es
tabliBh branch maunufaetories on this
side of the line. Last year British
Columbia purchased about a million
dollars worth of mining machinery
and fully 90 per cent of it was made
in Canada, One plant came from
London, England, and a few
from the United States It is tbe
same with a number of other inniis
tries, ns they have been built up by a
proper system of protection.
Canada is in a peculiar condition
With a growing home market there
are a number of manufacturing Indus
tries which can and will be built up
by n wise syBtem of protection, and
protection is the policy which will in
time make her a great manufacturing
This condition will te desirable
until the time arrlvos when her factories are turning out more than the
home markets can consume. At pres
ent this is not the case.
In the United States the manu
facturing industries have been pio
tcctcd during about forty years
Under the protective syBtem the indus
tries have prospered to a a wonderful
degree and are one of the principal
elements of the well boing of the
country. The prosperity is due main
ly to a large home market. Within
tbe past few years the products of the
factories have outgrown tke capacity
of the home market to absorb them
and the manufacturers are seeking for
markets outside of the ltepublic,
Through their high protective tariff
they have estranged Germany aud
some of tho other nations and because
of racial diffeicnces they have never
been able to obtain much of a foot
hold among the South American
republics. Tho manufacturers see
that they must hava an enlarged ma -
ket for trieir goods nnd some of the
erstwhile hide-bjund protectionists
are not shouting loudly for reoiproc
ity. Among the countries the Araeri
cans would liko to market their wares
in is Canada. It is not to tbe present
interest of Canada to give them suoh
a free hand as they would like to have
in this country. As Sir Wilfrid Laurier said they dcubtleaa will in time
send a delgation from Washington to
Ottawa, seeking reciprocity, but like
the (Jrecks bearing gifts wc should
beware of them. If a reciprocity
treaty is finally arranged it should be
one under which tho advantages to
this oountry should be equal to those
which we accord to the United States.
Such a treaty would require time and
the thoughtful attention of our wisest
statesmen to formulaic.
The tariff question is one that is
nhove and beyond mere partisan
politics, nnil Hon. William I'atnrson,
speaking nt the same dinner nt which
the premier spoke, said he, In common
with others, wanted the tariff to be
out of politics. He further said the
tariff Is largely out of politics today,
and that if you will take the trouble
to read the discussions at Ottawa you
will come to the conclusion that there
Is not much difference of opinion between the two great political parties
in Canada on this great question.
Iloth parties have beon made to yield
up something and as a result we have
today a tariff policy which may not
be perfect, bill which, in the main,
today is helping out tlio prosperity of
the Dominion as well as the many
factoring interests.

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
oases.   It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthma
lene received in good coudition. I oannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, ohained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. _
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful nnd tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you bad overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial anted like a
'Chnriii.    Send me a full size bottle.

(lentlemen : 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 nfHcted with spasmodic asthma fiw th" rast ID years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, t. chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 180 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmalene.
My wife commenced takiog 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 nv
commend the medicine te all who aim Jifflioted with this distressing disease.

Sold For $5,000,IIUO.
Rather a good   story   is  going
.minus   which is given for what It is
orlli. H ��'mri8 lhat a rainlne l,ro-
motor with an iiiternatioual reputation recently worked up a deal with
,.(,18 people" In London by which
,1,,., were to secure what is known as
the largest silver-lead mine in the
wm.|,i for five millions of dollars.
Ihe nentleman who represented the
BtookhoMerfi and the promoter were to
m0ot in New York for the purpose of
crossing the Atlantic together on the
name Bteamcr. The icpresentntlve of
the I'ompany took the right steamer
lint Ibe promoter did not arrive in
(lotliam till five days afterwards
ami this failure to keep the appointment led ultimately to serious conse-
nees. It is said that the St.
Eugene innn when he reached London
found that he would have five days
���pare time and concluded to run over
to Ireland and have a look at the
oaslle of his ancestors. The scenery
around the ancestral home must have
boen iilliuing for when the promoter
arrived in London the St. Eugene man
was nowhere to be seen. The promoter Interviewed his people how-
ever, and as his reports were to the
elfeet that the mine was a wonderful
one tl ey were prepared to give five
millions for the property. Finally
tbe St. Eugene rcpiesentative was
located anil a lelegiam sent to him
offering the (6,000,000. The scenery
in the neighborhood of the home of
Ins forefathers evidently bad a stimulating effect, and, so the story goes nt
least, for his ideas had undergone a
change and he telegraphed back that
instead of live millions he wanted
five million and fifty thousand dollars.
The London syndicato refused to
listen to the proposition and so the
ileal fell through. Had it been consummated, however, it would have
been the largest price ever paid Ior
any single group of m:nes in the history of Iliitish Columbia. Shortly
after the St. Eugene man received
advices that the deal had been declared off he lost his interest in the
sconle beauties of the Green Isle and
returned to llritish Columbia, doubt
less sadly thinking ol what might
have been had he not asked for that
additional fr>0,000.

Editor   Miner,���The   Tribune  continues to assert that we are   indebted
to the Hon. A. Q. Blair for tho saving
clauses that were inserted in tho Aot
ol Incorporation of the B. C. Southern
railway   company,    (the   ooal   mines
brunch).    The editor of The Tribune,
rit'iluips thinks that he and Mr. Blair,
were   tbe only people  in the   country
nlio thought of   inserting   such   provisions.     As the Associated Boards of
Trade of E. B. C. had asked for them,
as there  was a   largo   delegation   of
Vain nnd Kootenay people  there  ask-
'���'t?  for   them, and as they weie snp
ported hy the member for the district,
in whose name the   hill   stood,   there
was not much danger that they would
have been forgotten.    What happened
in tlio lailway   committee,   however,
wasthlH:   Mr. Illair who,   of   course,
in tlio railway  committee   represents
the government,   suggested   that the
committee pass the bill as it stuod, he
imil,.i'tal<ln_   that  clauses   protecting
home   industries   would   be   inserted
W"ro tho    bill   finally   passed   tho
linn so.
This was stronously opposed by Mr.
Tuito who insisted that the amend
ments should be inserted In com-
���nittiio. Alter an animated quarter of
Ml hour the committee adjourned
without further progress, and the opposition press commented upon the
breach in the cabinet. When the
committee again met, Mr. Blair waa
absent, having gone to Atlantic njitj
,("' his health. Mr. Slfton led the
committee, and presented the clauses
"" 'bey stnnd in the bill, everyone
accepting them as affording nn ample

Unwise Feeding Makes Them.
Some people thought he was a
funny old man when he spoke at
cump meeting on the subject of " Lord
Give Us Sense." One of the first
requisites for living a peaceful, upright, hooest, and religious life is
food of the kind that can bo easily
digested and that furnishes the rebuilding material for good healthy
brain and nerve centers.
It is absolutely out of the question
for a person to be peaceful, capable
and right minded when the brain is
Underfed, and the nerves wrecked
from lack of rebuilding elements they
have a right to oxpeet from good food.
A person fed on meat, bacon, ham,
fired cakes, hot blscnits, sticky and
poorly cooked starchy oat meal and
wheat, may possibly have strong
digestion enough to handle these
things and be a happy, healthy individual ; but IK) people in mo have
not, and the result is irritable, poorly
nourished, nervous bodies, foul
breath, and a general condition that
prevents ono from being happy and
contented. It Is practically impossible
for such persons to be good
The religion of common sense and
good food is tbo first religion that n
man or wuiiian should cultivate for
that coildili'in mnkes possible thoughts
of a higher nature und a bettor grade.
There is a world of wisdom in the
saving of Buskin, "We may lie sure
we are not serving the Lord if we are
not happy ourselves." All should
try to build np a steady set of nerves
and get rid of dyspepsia, constipation, lluttcrintj heart, weak nervous
condition, and a train of terrors that
come from bad digestion and poor
food. They Hliould quit coffee absolutely. Take for breakfast a little
cooked or raw fruit, a saucer of
