Ottawa, Jan. 8.���Signor Marooni
says that he has not yet reoeived any
word from Wiggins in regard to his
threatened suit for any infringement
ou his (Wiggin's) alleged discovery in
connection with wireless telegrophy.
Signor Marconi says that there are
Borne 25 or 30 people who are talking
in a similar way, tut he was not
troubling himsela about them.
Prof, E. Stone Wiggins announces
that he is going to tako legal action
to unset Signor Marconi's patent on
his wireless telegraphy. Tho profeB-

Wiggins made the announcement of
his determination when he wns asked
what he thought of a new despatch
which said in Amerioan- had been

asked if he believed it to be true.
"It is true in this sense," he said,

Diplomatic Relations at New
Chang Are Decidedly
Pekin, Jan. 8.���While the actual
casualties during the fighting at New
Chwang between American sailors
belonging to the U. S. gunboat Vicks-
burg. which is wintering there, and
Russian soldiers attached V* the garrison of that port, are trifling up to
date the matter has resulted iu unpleasantly strained relations between
the American, Russian and British
authorities there. The Washington
and St. Petersburg governments are
now endeavoring to arrange matters
so that there may be no further friction on the subject.
The trouble originated in the action
of some Baiiois belonging to the Rritish sloop of war Algerine (also in
winter quarters at New Chwang)
carrying ashore six titles for use in a
theatrical performance. The Russian
administration sent a force of men to
arrest the British sailors. The Russians, however, by mistake, broke
into a reading room where a party of
the Vlokuburg men were seated and>
tried to arrest them. The Americans
resisted using chairs in so doing, but
they were overpowered after a sharp
fight and banned over to the United
States consul, who sent them on
board the Vicksburg. The bad feeling which arose from this incident
resulted in several fights whenever the
American and British sailors' met Russian soldiers, and the latter not being
accustomed to fist fighting were
usually worsted. This state of affairs
oulminated on New Year's day in a
more serious affray and the Russian
minister here, M. Paul Lessar, complained to the United States minister
at this capital, Edwin H. Conger, that
two members of the Vioksburg orew
had fired a revolver at an unoffending Russian soldier wounding him in
the arm. The relations between tbe
American and British consuls and
naval commanders and tho Russian
administrator at New Chwang arc
strained whioh makes a friendly settlement of the affair difflonlt. The
administrator attempted to enforce a
soeial code which the foreign officials
refused to recognize, and consequently
the   relations  bave   been   liniitei   to
itself,  would   complete   the   electric  Btr|otly official  interviews whioh have

Mr. Muruoni took advantage cf this
and other disoovcries of mine for a

is not his, but mine. Ho puts up
steel wires my means of balloons, and

that they are only experimentalists.
The thing is impossible and  absurd."
Second  Attempt    to    Inter    Charles
QuarreHf^rOver   Her and
Was Stabbed in the Row.
North Hero, Vt., Jan. 8.���From an
obscure place known as Pointo au
Faire, on the New York side of Lake
Champluin, comes the report of the
murder of Miss Sophia Mannin. lt is
claimed that the woman was sneritied
in the couise of a fight over ber between two intoxicated men and tbat
after she was dead alcohol was poured
upon her body anil it was set on fire.
The men Eli Cameron and Edward
Dupuis bave been arrested and taken
to jail.
According to information at hand,
Miss Mannin for some time has been
housekeeper (or Cameron,a fisherman.
Not far lrom Cameron's houBe llveo
bis friend Edward Dupuis, whose wife
died about three weeks ago. Wishing
to get some one to keep bouse for him
Dupuis made an offer to Miss Mannin
but sbe had not accepted. On January 2nd the men met at Cameroon's
camp and after drinking, they began
dismissing the question of who should
have the services of Miss Mannin.
The men soon began to figbt with
knives. The woman attempted to
soparuta them and was fatally stabbed. To destroy traces of the murder, it was thought alcohol was poured over the woman and ignited. The
men left the place immediately. Three
days later a man wont to Cameron's
house and on the floor found tbe
charred body of tjie unfortunate
woman. The men were found, arrested and taken to jail nt Plattsburg.
Miss Mannin was about 40 years old
and belonged to a resectable family
at Rouse's point.

by thc Russian minister to the United

ary, 1002, have apparently stood by
tbeir word, as they have neither issued
to nor asked for passes from either the
Grand Trunk nor the Canadian Pacific
railways. The trunk lines whioh are
affected by the abolition uf "interchanges" are the New York Ceutral,

Lackawanna and Western,Lake Shore,
Lehigh Valley, Michigan Central.

As each of these roads issued something like. 50,1)00 passes a year, the
curtailment of work alone in keeping
track of them is enormous to say nothing of the millions of dollars involved.
Thc Grand Trunk belonging to tbe
association is affected in so tar as its
lines in the United States are concerned, and therefore will faithfully adhere to tho agreement. The C P.R. is
not affected, and will not be asked to

New York, Jan. 8.���A New York
and Harlem local passenger train ran
into the last car of a New York and
New Baven and Hartford train,known
aa the Norwalk accommodation today
in the New York Central tunnel between 56th and 57th streets in thiB
city. The wreck occurred about a
block and a half from the mouth ol
the tunnel. At 11 o'clock the number
of persons killed was placed by the
railway company at 15 and the injured
20 or more. The shock of tbe collision
was plainly heard by people passing
on Park avenue above the tunnel.
Several of them ran to give the alarm.
In ten minutes everybody at police
and Are headquarters were at work to
organize relief to be sent to the spot.
When the reaouers reaohed the wreck
smoke was pouring out of the entrance
to the tunnel at 55th street and great
columns of smoke poured out of the
first ventilator a hall block north.
Ambulances came in from east and
west, ladders were put down from the
street over the Iron fence to the track
and -iho firemen, policemen and surgeons were immediately at work. It
was very dark in the tunnel which
was filled with smoke and steam and
the work of rescue was difficult. The
locomotive uf the White Plains local
was hidden In tbe rear of the car of
the south Norwalk train. The maimed and injured were calling for help
from the wreck. Some were more
badly injured than others and were
being assisted by the more fortunate
New York, Jan. 8.���Almost a riot
was caused at the east 51st street
police station by the arrest of a man
who was accused by Coroner Scholler
of attempting to rob the bodies of tho
dead as they lay ln the station house.
People had been admitted to tho station to Identify the bodies and the
man is supposed to bave drifted in
with the orowd. When the man was
taken before the police sergeant at
the desk, the friends and relatives of
some of tbe dead men wero so incensed
that they made several attempts to
get at him, The man gave hiB name
aa John Maloney. Coroner Scholler
said he saw Maloney go through the
pockets of one ofthe dead person's
clothes. Maloney was hustled baok
to a cell followed by the cries of the
Most of tho deaths, injury and damage was wrought by the engine of the
Harlem train which plunged into thc
rear oar of the standing train. Its
many victims were mangled to death
in the mass of wreckage carried on
the pilot, crushed between boiler and
car sides, or scalded to death by
Tbe engine in Its final plunge of
lorty feet carried the rear oar forward
and sent broken timbers and splinters
crashing into the coach ahead. Lights
were extinguished and thc dead, injured and unharmed were left iu
darkness that escaping steam and
���moke made more confusing. Ladders
were rnn down tho tunnel air-shafts
and the firemen and police attacked
the debrii with ropok and axes. The
pasaengers had already rallied and
were trying to reioase their fellows
who were Imprisoned in the debris.
Father Wm. Smith, Roman Catholic
chaplain of the fire department,
crawled over the hot boiler of tho
wrecked engine to offer sacraments to
the dying. Rov. Dr. Walkely, Protestant chaplain of tho department
labored with. him. Lieut. W. Clarke
of the fire department forced his way

and   tha  chaplain   gave hor a stiruu

away the seat which   held   her  down
when a steam pipe   broke.   Tbe scald-1
isig steam drove   them back and when
they returned Mrs. Howard was dead.
Those of the injured in need of immediate attention were given temporary dressing by the ambulance and
volunteer surgeons and then hoisted
to the street above. Many of tbe
handsome houses which line Park
avenue were thrown o;.en to the suf
fering but most of the injured were
hurried to hospitals. The dead were
also carried to the surface and taken
to morgues and police stations. Responsibility fur the disaster in not

was to blame.
When the South Norwalk train wbb
stopped a flagman ran back into tbe
tunnel and besides placing a torpedo
on the track, endeavored to flag the
incoming train He burled his lantern at the cab window, but the big
engine never halted until it was
hurled into the wreck. It is not clear
that the torpedo exploded or that
Wlseho wns warned by the lantern
signal. Thrcre is also a question
about the propriety of the signal men
permitting the colliding train to enter
the same block section with the halted
train. The tunnel was clouded with
steam and smoke and the snow which
fell through the air shaft of the
tunnel also aided in obscuring lhe
view. Engineer Wischo and Fireman

The very strong views held on civic

question, uo matter what may be said
by designing parties, who, to serve

the contrary are simply campaign

act which would indicate that they
held opposite views or which revealed
iu any manner the desire of a single
one of them to part with any of the
public utilities owned by the oity.
Did any one of them ever offer in any
shape or form to deprive the city of
even a shadow of its vested rights in
public utilities?
It is true that a controversy arose
over the question ol the utility of
hiring power to supplement tha city's
electric light plant from a concern
wbich had it to sell. This question
was submitted to the vote of the ratepayers and it was defeated, not because a majority of thi elcctois were
against It, but because it failed to get
a three-fifths majority. The vote stood
207 for the;bylaw and 150 against it,
giving it a majority of 57 votes. This
voto 9howed that a lartte majority of
the ratepayers favored the taltiug of
power temporarily from the establishment that desired to furnish it; It
showed that a large majority had no
fear whatever that any interest of the
city would be in the remutest manner
imperiled by leasing a hundred ur
more horse power from a company
that engages in the business of generating power and selling it to whoever
may desire to purchase and use it.
This is tho sum aud substance of the
litre tiding of the retiring eity government in the alleged direction of depriving the oity of its utilities, and
yet, with this as a foundation, a
superstructure of misrepresentation,
which is as llimsy as a mirage, and
as devoid of substance as Itanqao's
ghost, has been reared, It has been
peopled with bogies and spooks and
illuminated with spectral (not
olectrie) lights nnd is being used ns a
sort of mansion of horrors in an endeavor to make the public believe that
in some mysterious nnd uncanny manner a deep laid conspiracy exists to
deprive the citv of some of its utilities. These efforts read like tales
told by a mailman, full of sound and
fury, hut signifying nothing.
Tbe public is discerning and fully
understand)) the situation, and knows
full well that thu utilities und affairs
of the eity will be taken the best of
cure of by Mr. Fletoher and his supporters. They will want something
more substantial than has yet been
brought forward by their few opponents before they will lose faith in
the honor and integrity of Muyor
Fletcher and the candidates for alder-
manic honors who, ii elected, will
support him Something stronger
than mere assertions innuendo and
insinuations lire needed, something in
the nature of lhat required in a court
and which is known as legal evidence,
s needed by thc Kirkpatriok supporters to baok up their already   tottering
between the United States and the
commer-ial countries of the world.
Then it says that the National Eeoip-
rocal convention at its session on
November 20th, in Washington adopted a resolution commending reciprocity through tariff modifications where
it can be done without injuring any
of the home industries of mauufaotur
ing, commerce or farming, thereby
rendering any application of reciprocal tariff concessions impracticable.
Tbe National Reciprocity convention,
In the second resolution, recommended
the establishment of a new commission to wbich shall be referred the
consideration of all reciprocal trade
agreements thereby nuiifying and
disregarding the valuable and beneficial work accomplished by the present minister plenipotentiary aud the
negotiations of the important treaties,
whereby a great part of tho trade of
commercial countries would be
thrown open to the Unitod States. In
conclusion the chamber expressed its
disapproval of the action of the
National Reciprocal convention as
subservise to ail attempts to bring
American markets into closer trade
relations with sister nations, to
open new and wider markets for pro
ducts, and calculated to invite hostile
tariff legislation ou the part of othei
nations against thc United States,
Tho Now York Chamber of Commerce takes thc proper view of reciprocity, as if thc plan outlined by tbe
National Reciprocal convention was
oarried into effect, tho other .nations
submitting, the United States would
enjoy all the benefits of reciprocity
without making any sacrifices whatever. The only reciprocity which
sibter nations will accept will be one
in whicb the benefits received will be
as great as those granted.

Tho London Medical Times finds a
remarkable coincidence between the
spread of cancer and the largely in
creased daily consumption of effervescent wines aud waters among the
wealthy classes. Champagne and all
aerated waters owe their effervescence
to the carbonic gas which Iht.y contain. The wiiter in tho Medical Times
contends that by tlieir habit of con
slant ly imbibing solutions of carbonic
acid of greater or lees strength, people
so prepare their iuucoub tissues as to
innko them favorable "culture beds
for the propagation of the cancerous
fungus, if fungus it Is. It this can
be proved, champagne, must go, and
not chnmpangc only, but seltzer and
soda und nil "soft drnks" as well.

It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. P. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,

tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. I
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you bad overspoken
yourselves, bnt resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial aoted like a
charm.   Send me a full size bottle.

My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon notioed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared

J. L. Parker, Superintendent of the

the Phoenix camp is at the Phair. Mr.
Parker says the people of the Boundary country are disposed to take a
cheery view of the drop in copper as
they arc certain that the mines thero
can be operated at a profit even at
present prices. The immense bodies
of comparatively low grade and the
fact that the ore is soft cuts down the
co6t of mining to a very low figure,
whlie the self fluxing properties of
the ore brings the cost of smelting
down to the minimum. Besides this
the people think that copper will nut
remain at its present figure for a great
while. There is considerable railway
building in progress and soon Repub
He will be sending ore to the Boundary Bmelters for treatment and the
outlook altogether for the ooming year
is rather cheery

Helps Aberdeen University When
Help Was Most Needed.
London, Jan. 8.���The Aberdeen
newspapers express the cordial i<atis
faction of Aberdonians .it the completion of tbe Aberdeen university extension scheme under the stimulus of
Lord Strathcona'B oheque for $125,000.
It is admitted that the scheme never
would have been completed but for
Lord Strathoona's business-like and
sympathetic munificence. They also
confess that Lord Strathcona, when
making his additional offer, stood
almost alone in his confidence that
Aberdonians would do their duty by
the university. The scheme provides
for a splendid elevation of 400 feet in
length, which will prove one of the
finest examples of architecture in the
kingdom. ���
London, Jan. 8.- There is a popular
impression that imorisonment for debt
has been abolished in Great Britain.
Returns show that during tbe year
just closed several thousand debtors
were imprisoned in England. Technically they were imprisoned for oon-
tenipt of court in failing to pay after
the judge of the county court had
ordered tham tu do so, but the nonpayment of debts was tbe real offence.
The system apparently bad a good
effect as the figures show tbat a large
majority of thoso against whom commitment warrants were issued paid up
when they came face to faoe with the
alternative of going to prison.
It Takes Many Deer to Supply the Pot
Hunters With Meat.
Editor Miner,���Kindly permit the
ne of your columns, for some small
items of information for the chief of
the provincial police. Information
costs nothing and we should cultivate
some show of liberality, during tbe
Christmas season. Since the publication in your columns of the "For the
Game Laws" letter. The chief has
undertaken to make enquires, from
which faot we hope, that there will be
a halt called on the lakes of the entire
extermination of all game tor which
the chief deserves our most sincere
I believe the game laws impose
upon ali foreigners entering the province for tbe purpose of bunting a tax
of $.10. Now let the chief take the case
of JFotnomanee Brown, the recluse,
of the cape, domiciled here for the
sole purpose of study at olose rrnge
tbe fauna of B. C. or more properly
speaking the fine feather and fur.
Although seemingly a self supporting
fellow what sum in hard cash has
this student of���how to get 'ear without packing���cost the provincial treas
ury iu the���call it rebate of taxes-
game license at $50 per annum for six
years, poll tax, with a should De
market tax, would be what, in round
figures. Just suit yourself chief, find
your sum total and then multiply , by
10 or 15 and you have what, about
enough to pay your salary my friend.
There is a small publio secret whioh
your department is supposed to know
nothing about. We have here Baptist,
Antonie, John Cariboo, of Colville,
and their families, J. Parkor and
laraily, Joseph, Frank, Louie and
families and others and you have
about 25 solid game destroyers.
Now hold your wind chief, does 800
head of deer keep these going per
annum. I know \.hereof I write and
I am fully satisfied that including
the annual visit of one or two families from the south, 1,000 is a conservative estimate of the deer killed by
these people. Let me call your attention to the fact that these people are
all armed with the lastcst, improved,
long range flat trejectory fire arms so
that the killing ot all deer that come
in sight is certain. Again it is no
uncommon practice tor these people,
to kill during the summer for fat and
skins alone If hunting some distance
from camp; and again a large animal
may be killed skinned and nothing
but the skin and hums packed out.
Let me assure you that these observations anent the game laws are written in no mean or malicious spirit. I
have no hesitation in saying publicly
that I have no complaint to make a-
gainst the poor devil who may be in
want foi killing a deer at any season t
always providing that use is made cf
the meat. All that we who are interested in this matter ask is that living
on and by game alone should be put a
stop to, only this and yours truly will
pray that the lord will by and by
provide you with a halo, the Bhine of
Which will shame an American Electric lamp. Bemuinlng yours truly,

Sticking to Any Habit When it Means Sure
Old King Coffee knocks subjects
out tolerably flat at times, snd there
is no possible doubt of what did it. A
lady gives her experience. "I used
to have liver trouble nearly all of the
time and was oompell "d to take some
liver medicine like calomel which
relieved me only for a little while.
Then evorv once in a while I would
be suddenly doubled up with an awful agony in my stomaoh. It seemed
bb though every time I took a breath
I would die. No one could suffer auy
more and live.
Finally I got down so sick with
catarrh of the stomach that I could
not torn over in bed, and my stomach
did not digest even milk. The doctor
finally told nee that If I did uot give
up drinking coffee I would surely die,
but I felt I could not give it up.
However, Husband brought home a
package of Postum Food Codec and it
was mudo trictly according to directions. It was the only thing that
would stay on my stomaoh, and I soon
got bo I liked lt very much.
Gradually I began to getjbeltcr, and
woek by woek gained iu strength and
health. NowJI am in perfect condition, and I uin convinced that the
whole cause of my trouble was from
coffee drinking, and my getting better was duo to leaving of? coffee and
taking I'ostnm.
A short time ago I tasted some coffee
and found, to my astonishment, that
I did not care anything abont it. I
never have to take livor medicine any
more. I hope you will use this lotter
fo- the h ���nelil of those suffer ing from
tho poisonous effects ut coffee. I
wuuld gladly send to those who wish,
the address of my attending physician
who will corroborate what I say,

Speeches Made by Mayor Fletcher,
Alderman Gillett and W. W. Beer.
A large and enthusiastic meeting
of the supporters of Mayor Fletcher
was held in the committee rooms last
evening. Mayor Fletcher addressed
the meeting briefly snd among other
things said he wonld bring down his
plst'orm and tbat he was prepared to
tight the campaign to a finish so far
bb tho interess of the city are concerned. Tho attaoks made against htm on
the public utility question, he declared to be false in their premises snd
based on flimsy foundation. His
platform was to keep Nelson to the
frodt flrst, last and always, and he
trusted the citizens would stand
shoulder to shoulder with that objeot
in view. Wa have bad dull times he
said bnt there was a silver lining to
every oloud, and with tho coming
spring thoro was no question but
what better times would soon be heie.
It behoovod all, he declared, to work
for the future and in the interest of
Nelson at all times.
Alderman Gillett spoko and strongly
endorsed the remarks ofthe mayor. He
hud while sitting in the board of

Plans have been prepnred by A.
Carrie, architect, for the proposed
drillshed (or the local militia corns
and will be forwarded to tlio department at Ottawa. These plans wore
first prepared some time ago but were
returned by Col. Holmes for some
suggested alterations. The plans provide for a building 50x120 feet, brick
with hardwood floor and two stories
in height. A suspended gallery would
run around the drill hall capable of
holding 500 people. Above this wonld
be the office for tho commanding
officer, officers' mess non-commissioned officers' mess, recreation room,
reading room, four armories, nud
orderly room. Tho estimated cost of
the building would be fin,ooo. A
Bite is already in v!c-,v for the building. W. A. Qallilier. M. 1'., is using
every endeavor to secure the appropriation for the erection of thn building
and there is a good probability that it
will be passed at the approaching
session of parliament.
