Two Injured   and Their Teams  Withdrew From the Race.
New York, Dec. 12,-Along in the
afternoon a crash occurred between
McLean and Chevalier. They fell
from their wheels and Chevalier was
evidently hurt. An instant later
Pisher who bad been hastily mounted
on his wheel by his trainer, to take
the place of his partner, waa riding at
full speed about the track when Fredericks, who seemed to be very weak,
struck the rear of Fisher's bicycle.
Both were thrown to the track and
Hall ran Into the fallen riders and
was thrown from his wheel. He
escaped iDJury, however. Fisher lay
like one dead for several minutes,
when bis trainers reached his side, he
waa lifted up and was about to be
carried to his quarters, when he became wild and fought them, kicking
one of tbem in the stomach. Later in
the afternoon it was announced that
Fisher an1 Chevalier would be unable
to continue the race. Fisher sustained
fracture of his shoulder, while his
partner sprained his wrist. Pour
miles were added to the totals during
the sprint when the accidents occurred
Dut the effect of the wonderful effoits
of the men was clearly shown on their
faces. Several nf them were so wenk
they seemed hardly able to remain on
their wheels. Manager Winsett, of
McEachran and Walthoui, was very
angry that the judges refused tt allow
his team a lap be claimed they Intel
made, and threatened to pull the team
from the track.
Shortly before 0 o'clock McEachran,
dressed in citizen's clothes, appeared
on the track and announced he would
nut ride any more unless the lap he
claimed was restored, and allowed.
He walked off the track, with his
partner Waltbour who was on his
wheel shouting to him to oomo back
nd not desert him. To these appeals
he paid no heed
Maya also snid he wonld quit the
race unless justice was done his team.
But while the matter was under discussion the ��� officials were trying to
induce McEaehern to retum to the
track, Maya went on and relieved his
team mate Wilson. At last after
three-quarters of an hour of argument
with MoEachran on the part of the
officials, he conceded a poiut and
agreed to return to the race temporarily.
At midnight five teams had a score
of 1,790 miles, 4 laps, and the others
were within a mile, and (18 miles o
laps behind tne record.
With the beginning of'the last half
ot tbe 6-day bicycle race with its
attendant spills and nervous tension
of the riders strained to the breaking
point the interest of the public is
greatly on the increase. This interest
was appareut in the presence of 10,000
people in Madison Square Garden at 8
o'clock tonight. At 8 o'clock the men
were 57 miles and four laps bsbind
the reoord. Early iu the evening the
trainers of MoEachran and Waltbour
agreed to withdraw their protest
against the refeiee's decision which
refused them the lap they claimed to
have gained during the afternoon and
fcr which decision McEachran threatened to quit the race.

Decl/lons Against
The Color Line and Other In
terestlng Matters Discussed,
Soranton, Pa., Dec. 12.���Much life
was infesed in today's proceedings of
the convention of the American Federation of Labor The negro problem
in the south, as far as it relates to
unionism, was unexpectedly injected
into the proceedings and the long
standing conflict between the social
ists and trade unionists promised to
monopolize the atteniion of the delegate's, had the socialists replied to the
trade unionists. The questions of
organizing common laborers into a
national union and of the barring
out of unions and organizations allied
with city, Btate, national, or international unions, if tbey refuse to
affiliate w'th the American Fedeiation
of Labor were also vigorously
The socialist incident caitio np in
the morning session during the discussion of a committee report endorsing most oi the recommendations con -
tained in Mr. Gompers' annual
D, M. Hays, of Philadelphia,
national president of the glass blowers, aud Max Hays, of the Cleveland
Central Labor union, the well known
socialist made speeches strongly urging the enforcement of laws prohibiting child labor. The latter, during
his remarks, read a list of decisions
rendered by federal aud state courts
against organized labor.
A motion to have the list printed in
the minutes brought President Gompers, who was not ln the chair at the
time, to his feet and the delegates
were treated to a three-minute passionate speech. He said it was unfair
to incorporate the list in the minutes
in that way and suggested that a list
of trade union victories shou d te
printed along with it. He concluded
by denouncing the "attempt to show
that trade unionism is a failure."
and characterized it as an outrage. A
wave of applause swept over the cor-
veiition us Mr. Gompers took his seat.
The motion was defeated and the
recommendations of the president
were udopted, except the one referring
to a general defense fuud.
The comniitfeu'B suggestion that the
fund be raised by national and labor
unions, instead of by the American
Federation of Labor, was adopted.
The negro question came up when
thn committee en law reported a resolution compelling all local unions
affiliated with the federation to join
Ihe central labor bodies in their respective localities. William Henry
Clay, one of the two colored delegates
from Virginia, made thc point that
the federation last week in deciding
a contested seat where the color line
was brought into question, had
authorized the creation of a separate
central union in Richmond for colored
workmen, The resolution was debated
for more than an hour by many dele-
agates and was defeated.
Resolutions were reported on the
question of mganizing the common
laborers into large unions aud both
were recommended to be sent to the
executive council with instructions
for that body to take up the matter
and report to the convention.

Washington, Dec. 12.���The senate
agreed today to take a vote before adjournment next Monday on the new
Hay-Pauncefote treaty for the abrogation of the Cloyton-Bulwer treaty and
opnning the way for tho construction
of a canal across the isthmus of Pan-
area by the United States. This agreement was reached after four hours of
dcoate, sufficiently interesting to in
sure the constant attendance of most
of tbe senators. Senator Spooner, vho
-as one of the principal speakers of
the day, had just "oncluded when
Senator Lodge made an effort to
secure a vote. It developed there
were other senators who desired to be
heard, tbe result being that the date
for the vote was postponed until
Monday. The agreement provides for
an adjournment of tbe senate from
today until Monday and for a meeting at 11 o'clcck on Monday, one hour
in advance of the usual time. The
understanding Is that as soon as practicable aftei the Senate convene), Senator Lodge shall move an executive
session and that tbe treaty shall have
tbe entire attention of the senate
until a final vote is reached before tbe
adjournment ior that day,
The prinolpal speakers today beside
Senator Spooner, were Senator Money
and Senator Foraker.
Mr Money, while finding much in
the treaty to criticize, said that as he
found that fortunes of the proposed
canal across the isthmus inextricably
intertwined with the treaty, be could
not Bee his way dear to do anything
that would prevent or even delay
ratification. Tbe principal features
of the new treaty, he lound fault
with, were those referring to tbe
neutrality provision of the Cloyton-
iiulner convention and specifying
police control of the canal when
built. He argued that the effect of
those provisions inevitably must be to
limit and prescribe the power of tbe
United Steles to control its own piop-
erty in oaee of war.
Senator Foraker maintained the
provisions of the new treaty meet
every objection made to the original
Hay-Pauncefote treaty and cover
every essential thing tbat waB included in the amendments made by the
senate to that document. He regarded
it as of-the utmost Importance that
the Clayton-Bulwer treaty should be
wiped out. Tbis result was effected
by the convention under considera
tion He asserted that all rights of
tbe United States were amply protect
ed under this treaty and that our
absolute and complete control of the
canal oould not be questioned by
Great Britain or any other power.
Mr. Foraker's speech dealt largely
witb the legal constrnctlon and the
general effect of tbe treaty. Be said
tbat after a careful study of its provisions he was firmly convinced that
it could be honestly supported by
every patriotic oitizen.
Senator Foraker was frequently in-
teriupted by Senator Bacon. In tbe
course of one of these interruptions
Mr. Bacon asked If it was not true
that under the terms of the treaty, tbe
construction of the formications of
tbe United States would be an act of
Mr. Foraker replied in the negative,
declaring tbat not only would such an
act not be an act of hostility, but
tbat to build fortifications in oase of
necessity was one of the Inherent
rights of tbe government.
Senator Spooner who followed, also
was frequently interrupted by senators on the Democratic side. One of
tbe first interruptions came from Senator Bacon and appertained to the
right to fortify the canal. Replying
to this inquiry, Mr. .Spooner contended in this connection that tbe Clayton-Bulwer   treaty,   the orlgnal Huy-
I'auncefote   treaty, and   the   pending
r aty for the proper construction of
I tbe   agreement, should   be considered
as one series. The Ulayton-Bulwer
' agreement   had   provided   that   there
should be no fortifications on the
canal and the Hay-Pauncefote treuty
of the r;f>iii congress had carried a sim-
liar provision, but the new treaty-
struck out the entire fortification
provisions clearly showing that England after contending for hali a century against fortifications, hud waived
that provision, thus practically conceding our right to fortify tbe proposed canal., A very importuut
question raised by a number uf senators of thc Democratic side as the
right of the United States to give a
differential rate to vessels engaged in
our coastwise trade. This matter
brought other senators from the Republican side of the chamber into tlie
cuutroversy. Senators Perkins and
Nelson are among those who contributed to this feature of the controversy. Senator Nelson insisted that
under existing law, the United States
would have a perfect right to give to
tbe coastwise trade of this country
any benefit it might ice proper in use
of the canal. It was perfectly well
understood, he said, that the ships of
a foreign nation would not do a coastwise business and Great Britaiu bad
made the treaty with full knowledge
of this fact.
Senator Perkins made the assertion
that by the acquisition or control of a
strip of territory through which the
canal would pass the United States
would acquire rights whicb would
subject that territory to our coastwise laws, and said foreign bottoms
could not trade between ports of the
United States and any portion of the
territory thiough which the caual was
This view was combatted to a certain extent by Senators Tillman and
Bacon, the former intimating that if
that were true, relative to the United
States, Great Britain on account of
her Cunadiar, possessions and Mexico,
both extending from ocean to ocean
lso could contend for similar
privileges. This, ho thought, also
would be true of any South American
country whose territory extends from
ocean to ocean.
Senator Spooner was decidedly of a
contrary opinion and insisted that
tbese couutrics did not acquire any
rights of a coustwise trade character
along the route of the proposed canal

or which might be ceded to the United

Morgan's report covers more than 500
pages of printed matter nnd deals
with many of tlic questions connected
with the construction of the canal,

written by President Uutiii of the

that tbe letter to Secretary liny was

it wns written after Admiral Walker,
as president of thc commission had
closed his correspondence with Mr.
Iltitin, minting to the sale of the
Panama canal.
ne then adds: "The letter to Mr.

bach to January 1st, 18(10, the imlei
number was 'JO per cent, higher than
now, and during war times the increase was of course much greater.
As these price records are compiled
by multiplying the quotations of all
the necessaries of life by the per capita consumption in cacti case, it appears that if a man purchased his supplies for one year on December 1st
they would have cost 8101.87,while the
same quantities of tbe same articles
would have aggregated only $72.46
on Jnly 1st, 1807, the lowest point on
record, and $121.75 on January 1st,
That the present rate of consumption
is above the average is not a matter
of guess work. Payments through
clearing houses are now running far
beyond all previous records, with the
single exception of the second quarter
of this year which was distorted by
speculation. These transfers of money
are in exchange for gcodB purchased,
and show phenomenal gains over even
the two preceding years, which is
turn greatly surpassed all earlier
record. Railway earnings are similarly making new high-water murks,
and yet the capacity ia so starllingly
Inadequate that freight blockades
occur all over the country. This unparalleled movement of merchandise
does nor. indicate curtailment of con-
snmtplon because prices are high.
Production has been much above the
average. The pig iron output has surpassed ail records; bteel rail mills are
unable to guarantee delivery telore
the end of 1003", coke ovens and anthracite mires bave been making top
records; wool sales in Boston foi the
first week in December amounted to
20,000,000 pounds and shipments of
boots and shoes have never been
equalled. There have been most striking gains in breadstults, meats, dairy
and garden products. Wheat ana corn
advanced 5 5-8 cents, oats 0 3-4, mess
pork $1 a barrel, and lard a cent a
pound Milk went up 'M cents a can,
eggs four cents a dozen, and batter
two cents a pound. Apples alone
were quoted lower.
It is interesting to note in connection with what it now costs to IrV
that the last issue of tbe Labor
Gazette says that the price of bread
ranges in tbe Dominion lrom 2 1-3 to
10 cents per pound. The usnal price
ln Ontario is 2 1-2 cents though at
one or two points b" cents is given.
Only at one point in the Eastern
provinces is the pi ice quoted above 3
is higher than any point east of the
lakes. In llritish Columhiu prices arc
naturally somewhat higher. The
prices at Vancouver is 3 1-2 cents.
Victoria, 4 cents; Westminster, 5
cents; Nanaimo 10 cents. If the aver-
nge price in Ontario, 2 1-2 cents, is a
lair one, bakers at some of the other
points must make a big margin, even
after allowing for the ditlerenee in
cost of material and wages,
The usual cost for milk in Onalrio
and (Quebec is 5 cents per quart;
Maritime provinces (i cents; British
cents.     This is 3 1-3 cents at Halifax

A dispatch from BostoOj'states 'that
the control of tlie United Stutcs Metal
Selling company has passed into the
joint ownership of the Amalgamated
Copper Co.. tbe Rothschilds, nnd the
Calumet and Ilecla Mining Co. Tlie
Metal Selling company has contracted
to buy for live years from January
1st the product uf tne Amalgamated,
the Calumet and fleela and the Rio
Tinto mines. This is by far the most
Important combination that has yet
been formed to control the copper
market and is one that should prove
strong enough to sustain prices where
they are and perhans to advance
them a lit'le It is evident that effort
on tbe part of these leading concerns
to control the copper markets of the
world have been in progress for some
time past, und it is certain that the
deal above mentioned has oeen in
process of formation for a considerable period and was the cause of considerable disturbances in the markets
ui both London and on this continent.
It has been claimed by the bears that
with the decrease in the demand for
unppcr, the augmentation of the production and the accumulation of
stocks in the hands of thc Amalgamated company, the attempt to maintain prices wculd only end in a great
crisis in the market during which the
value of the metal would be out
almost in two. It was held by the
bulls, that the cessation lu the
active demand and the decrease in the
consumption of tbe nielnl was only a
temporary affair. and while the
amount ot stocks which had accumn-
later' was so large at one time, that
there hud been a recent reduction in
them, and that they were not as great
as the Dears would make them out to
be. That the bear movement was successful is evidenced by the fall in
copper in London to ��55 which is tha
lowest figure in that market since
1808. This break had a corresponding
inlluence on tbe price of Rio Tinto
and other copper shares sold in London, und ou like shares in New
York. Thc combination which has
just been made, embodying as it does
the three largest factors in the copper
market, is so strong a one that it certainly will be able not only to main
tain prices, but also to cut down production. It seems almost certain,
therefore, that the slump in the price
of copper and of copner shares has
reached an end, and that nricea will
soon bound to the standard figures
again. This is fortunate lor the gold-
copper mine owners cf llritish Columbia,and they will breathe easier again,
for had copper gone much lower some
of the companies operating low grade
mines, producing ore from which the
principal value was copner, would
have been compelled tu shut down In
order to wait for higher prices. ThiB
would have given British Columbia a
serious setback.

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
si     XWl
There is' nothing like Asthmalene, It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst,
cases.    It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. I oannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore throat and aBthma for ten
yeors. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial aeted like a
charm.   Send me a full size bottle.
Rev, Dr. Morris Wccbaler,
Rabbi ot thn Cong. Bnai Israel,
New York, Jan, 3,1901
Db Taft Bros. Mbdicinb Co.,
Gentlemen: Your Asthmaleno is an
excellent remedy for Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troubles whieh combine with Asthma.
Its success is astonishing and wonderful
After having it caretully analyzed, we oan state that Asthmalene oontains
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.   Very truly yours,
Avon Springs, N. Y, Feb. 1, 1901.
Drs. Taft Bnos. Medicine On.
Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a Bense of duty, having tested the
wonderful elfect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of ABthma. My wife has
been offlcted with spasmodic aBthma for tho past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your Bign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmalenn.
My wife commenced taking it about the flrst of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma ha6 disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend thc medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.
Yours respeotfulty, O. D. PHELPb, M. D.
Dr. Taft Bbos. Medicine Co, Feb. 6, 1901.
Gentlemen: I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous remadiea, but they have all failed. I ran across your advertisement and
started with a trial bottle. I found relief at onoe. I have since purchased your
full-sized bottle, audi am ever grateful. I have a family of four children, and
for six years wss unable to work. I am now in the best/if health and am doing
business every day.   This testimony you can make such use of as you see fit.

In the United States the universities
have been fortunate in bequests and
endowments, and some of them are
rich from these to a point of opulence.
Tbe latest gift, made hy Mrs. Jane L.
Stanford to the Leland Stanford. Jr.,
university of California of nearly
$30,000,000 worth of properly is a
magnificent one The total of her endowment is said to be three times
greater than was ever given before by
one Individual for educational purposes to one institution in the history
of the world. Andrew Carnegie purposes giving $10,00(1,000 to the government for educational purposes <vliicli
is another big gift to those who in
lhe fnturo desire to secure au education. Mr. Carnegie's design ia to
place the money ii the hands of a
epresentativc   61 the   government   in
order that the expenses of deserving
students may be helped from it along
lines of original investigation at
home or abroad. It will be in the
nature of a national unlverity.
On the one hand Mrs. Stanford Is
carrying out thc idea ot her husuand,
the late Senator Stanford, In endowing the university as a memorial to
her only son, who died at a tender
age. On the other nand, Mr. Carnegie
thinks it is a ciime for n man to die
rich and is spending his immense
fortune in public benefactions, in a
much more rapid manner than it was
accumulated, in founding libraries
and for eduutioLal purposes. The
United States should have son?e splendid educational institutions when
such a spirit animates the wealth as
is displayed by Mrs. Leland Stanford
and Andrew Carnegie.

Comes From White Bread
While   it    is true that   we build   up
the body from   food,    it   is   also   true
that   different   kinds   of   food     have
different   effects on tbe body aud produce different results.
J For instance, it is absclntely Impossible   to   live on white    bread   alone,
for   it   contains   almost nothing   but
starch, and   an   excess of white bread
produces gas and trouble in (lie intestines,   while,    at   the   same time   the
other elements required   by   the   body
for   building   up brain and nerve centers, as well as muscular   (issue, have
been left out of lhe whito   brear, and
we see fiom experience the one trying
to   live   on white bread alone  gradually   fails    in      mental    and   nervous
power ffs well as loss in muscle.    Snch
a diet could not be kept up long without fatal results.      A lady tn Jacksonville,   Kla.,   was  crippled by an accident two years   ago.      Being  without
the power of exercise,    an old stomach
trouble mat was heis for years became
worse, and it was   a serious   question
regarding   food that she   could digest.
A physician put her on   Grape-Nn's
Breakfast Food with some remarkable
results.      She says now that, not only
is she able   to do.a   big   day's   work,
because oF the strength   of   her   brain
and   nerves,    but   tbat she has finally
thruwn away her crutches because thc
muscles of her   limbs   have   gradually
grown   stronger   since   she began tlie
use   of   drape-Nuts,    and uoiv she   is
practically   well   and   can   go   about
without  trouble, notwithstanding the
fact   that it was said   she would never
be able to wal:< again.      So much for
eating   the   right kind of food instead
of remaining an invalid and a cripple
because of the lack   of   knowledge   of
the kind of focd to use   to   bring   one
ba:k to   health.     Name   given on application to Postum Cereal   Co.,    Ltd,

A large number of skaters enjoyed
the excellent stretch of ice at the foot

Probability   That a Company Will Be
Raised in B. C.
Thero is every probability that a
troop of expert packers will be enlisted in llritish Columbia for service in
South Africa. Yesteiday Capt. ?.lac-
donell received a despatch from Capt.
Leckie requesting bim to send by express to Col. Kvans sample of pack
saddle complete, also to keep names
of puckers as they may be wanted.
The matter was turned over for attention as to det.iils to LI. Brown and
by fl o'clock he had shipped an oak
saddle with heavy breast strap and
breeching, and double cinohes of cotton rope, cinch band 8 inches wide,
and 35 feet of cinch rope.
The prospects seem good that this
suggestion will be adopted so any
skilled packers who are disposed to
enlist would do well to hold themselves in readiness. The physical requisites are, not under 20 years ol
age or over 40, not under 5ft. 5 in. in
height, nor to weigh moro than 185
pounds, to have a chest measurement
of not less than 31 in, and to be medically fit according to imperiul yeomanry condi'.ions; qualicfiutions, to be
able to ride, shoot and pack.

Halifax and Nova Sootia Still Stand
By the Intercolonial.
Halifax, Dec. 12.���Little interest is
taken here in the action of the Halifax Board of Trade, declaring in favor
of tbe tiansfcr. of tbe management of
the Intercolonial to the Canadian
Pacific railway. It stems to have been
a snap vote iu fact, the members of
tie board themselves wero ootually
surprised that the resolution passed,
for several of (lie leading men of the
city at the meeting spoke stongly
against the scheme, and that the resolution passed unanimously is by no
means a fair index of the temper of
the meeting. It is said, in explanation, that those opposed to the resolution, did not consider It of sufficient
importance to register a formal vote
in opposition. Pnblic opinion is decidedly against it, while throughout
Nova Scotia tbe peoplo as a whole
would never consent to such a
change. Tho movement in Halifax
favoring the scheme is due to a feeling that this city has not received fair
play in the matter of export trade.
Some of the members ot the board of
trade believe that the Intercolonial
management have not been very ac
tive in looking after export business,
and that under C. P. R control a
large part of the freight now shipped
via American ports would come to
