Buffalo, Oet. 10.���The New England
bnilding ut the Pan-American exposition was destroyed by lire tonight.
Tbo valuable contents of the building
consisting of rich furnishings of historic value, costly oil paintings and
other articles of great value were destroyed, Tbe building cost 1(80,0(10.
The lire was discovered at 11.10 and
an hour laler the eastern portion of
the building was in usher.. That port
of tho structure still standing will
probably not be fit for use again. Tho
structiiie was one ot tho iiuest of the
state buildings on the exhibition
grounds. It was of colonial design
and of a style similar to many of lhe
older mansions to be found ln thc
prosperous New England towns. It
was of white wood und wliitc wood
trimmings. A wide spacious porch
van across tho front of the building
its entire length and the colonial
pillars thereon gave it.the thoroughly
Now England aspect. The live New
Enginnd states uniled in the erection
of tbis building. Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island auc
Connecticut. Each state had its own
special room on the seoond floor. The
main floor was given np to a spacious
entrance hull, committee and recep*

Among the valuable paintings lost
was a life size portrait of James G.
Illume, which is Baid to have been the
best painting In existence of that

adding now fertile land to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, has luen
withdrawn form tho Statcs-Gcnerul

bus thus beon disposed of probably for
a long period. Mr. Ilill says that tho

Paris, Oot. 19.��� Santos Dumont
made another asoension today, starting thc first time at 2:20 p. rn., but
on leaving the park his guide rope
caught in a tree and ho was obliged
to descend. He started again at 2:42
p. in. rose 220 yards and then pointed
fur the Eiffel tower, the oalloon
going in a straight line. It waj seen
through field glasses io arrive at the
tower and round it. The time up to
thut point wilh the wind in tbe
balloon's favor was eight minutes, 45
seconds. It returned against Ihe
wind and made slower headway, but
still keeping in tho true direction of
St. Cloud, which it readied is the
total time of 20 minutes aud 15
seconds, Instead of descending immediately, Santos Dumont made a broad
swoep over the Aoro club grounds
with tho result that another minute
and 25 seconds were consumed before
the workmen seiiied the guide rope.
Thus technically Santos Dumont exceeded the time limit by 40   seconds.
The enormous orowd whioh had
guthered inside aud outside thc
grounds, gave t-.e aeronaut a tremendous ovatiun. As his basket came
within speaking distance, Santos
Dumont leaned over the side and
asked, "Hnve 1 wan ths prize?"
Hundreds of spectators shouted ,
"Yes " but the Count de Dion, n
member of the committee, approached
and threw a damper upon the onthu-
slasm by saying, "Mv friend, you
have lost the prize by 40 seconds."
The aeronaut after protesting
iigniiisl the decision of the committee
shrugged his shoulders and remarked,
''Anyway, I do not cure personally
for the 100,000 francs. 1 Intended to
give it to the poor " A number of
ladies who were present threw flowers
over the aeronaut and others offered
him boquets. At this moment M,
Deutsoh arrived at tho olub grounds,
having only shortly before that
moment reached Paris from Biarritz.
He advanced, embraoed Santos Dumont, shook hands with him aud
said, "For ray part, I consider that
you have won the prize." The crowd
then gavo the two men a gieat ovation, cheering heartily for Santos
Dumont and Deutsoh. Santos Dumont
claims he won the prize becuuse he
reached the park within the time and
that the original rules governing the
oontcEt mnde no mention of having to
touch tho ground within tha 30
minutes.
Tho dispute Is due to tho action of
the committee which some timo ago
modified the terms of the contest by
inserting the latter stipulation.
Santos Dumont at thc time protested
and refused to bo bound by thc fresh
regulations, and strenuously upheld
thin viow with the Count de Dion and
other members of the committee and
on descending today finally declared
that he considered he had won the
prize and wonld not try again. If the
money wns withhold, It will not be
his fault. M. Deutech said ho would
give 25,000 francs to the poor, notwithstanding the decision of tbe com-
mlttoe, but Suntos Dumont declined
to accept tbo offer as a solution of the
difficulty.
There was a largo assemblage of
pnoplc ut the Eiffel towor and considerable interest wus manifented in the
experiment in other parts of Paris,
groups of peoplo gathering the streets
to watch the progress of the balloon
with its long guide rope hanging and
big pio'pcller whirling round, while
those below distinctly distinguished
the loud buzzing of the motor.

Berlin, Oct, 19.���The .seventieth
birthday of tbe late Emperor Frederick was quietly celebrated yesteiday. In the morning Emperor
Willliam placed a wreath of violets
on the sarcophagus. Tbe wreath bad
attached to it a white satin ribbon
with the initials of their majesties in
gold. The entrance to thu mausoleum
and the monument were beautifully
decorated with flowers as was the
monument representing the late
Empress Fredetek. Early in the dny
delegations from the different regiments placed wreaths on the sarcophagus. Tbo city of Potsdam sent a
laurel crown. At noon Princess Eitcl
Frederick, Auguste and Oscar also
brought floral offerings to tho tombs.
Conspicuous umoug the floral tributes
was a wreath sent by the British
colony at Rio Janeiro to be placed un
the tomb of tbe late Empress Frederick. During the day the purple standard of the Queen of Prussia was
flown at half mast over tbe palace of
Empress Frederick. An equestrian
Htutue of late emperor was Unveiled at
Nordl.ausen, Prussian, Saxony, the
ceremonies Including a procession.
There were only two editorials in tin
papers here on the event. Tho Post
says: "The nation remembers with
sorrow tbo chivalrous personage whose
tiagio destiny it waB to die when ho
had hardly entered upon his high
ollice. Hia political views, when he
was cio n prince differed from oms;
he embracing liberalism in the
forties. But he hud a praiseworthy
and h'gh regard for his ollice and subordinated his individual idea and inclinations to tho common interests.
He will not be forgotten as a nobleman, popular prince and heroic
sufferer. The laurel mown on hi**
forehead secures bim a place of honor
in oui* history."
Tho Berlin Zetning eulogizes Emperor Frederick's liberalism,depicting
the good wbich be might have done
had he lived longer Three monuments to tbe late Empress William
were unveiled yesterday. One of these
was unreiled at Aix La Chapelle in
the presence of Crown Prinoe Frederick William, who afterwards returned to Bonn. The other monuments
were unveiled at Aliensteln and
Fricdenhue, Prusria. The Berliner
Nenste Nachrichten complains that
the Bismarck monument is invisible
after sunset, excepting by the light
furnished from two old fashioned gas
lamps, saying that Count Von Buelow
acoopted It on June 10 In tho hope
that it would bo illuminated in a
manner worthy of hia gieat predecessor, and adding that the chancellor
may appeal to tho city magistrate who
ill um ia tes the statues of tbe Speigos
AI li- (even that of Otto, the lazy, electrically, should he willing to do the
same for Otto the Diligent.)
Tula was Vlrchow week. Tho coin*
brntion of his eightieth birthday was
still going on yestorday. The city
authorities dined the honored citizens
at thu Hath IlaiiH, whioh wus beautifully decorated. There were no government oflluiaiH, personages or uniforms present, tho assemblage being
made up of citizens of Berlin and
foreigners. The chief speaker was
Herr Klracheiner, the burgomaster.
Tonight tbe Berlin-Handwerker
V, rein will weloome Professor
Virchow as an honorary member. An
exhibiton of addresses, memorals,
medals, pictures,and .tntuua presentrd
to PtofesaT Vlrchow was opened yesterday at the Kunst Gewerbe Museum,
It is said that thc Czar will confer on
Professoi Virchow the ordor of the
Whlto Eagle, but that bis long
absence from St. Petersburg has delayed the olllcinl announcement of
tbis faot.
Two of the Liberal newspapers have
exprcssod dissatisfaction because
Emperor William only presonted u
medal to the professor, Instead of conferring on him the title of Exce'-
lency or some order, pointing out-that

ASSAULTED    BY    THUGS
JOHN BURNS WAYLAID ON WARD
STREET-THE RUFFIANS
ESCAPE.
A serious assault under peculiar
circumstances took placo last night
about 0,30 o'clock. As John Burns,formerly an employee hi the fireball was
going up Ward street to attend service at the Roman Cntholic ohurob
be noticed u man standing on the
north side of Carbonate street and
another on the south side near Ward
street. He paid no attention to them
but as he reached the alley near the
uhurch he heard a step behind him
and the next moment received a heavy
blow on tbe head from a stone.
Though iliizno Bi\*-r,s was not rendered
unconscious and shouted for help.
The two mon immediately ran along
Carbonate street toward Stanley
street.
Burns' oall for help brought S. S.
Taylor, almost opposite whoso house
the affair happened. Mr. Taylor
assisted tbo mounded man down
streot, meeting Officer Hardy ou the
way, who took Burns to a drug store
where the wouud, a nasty cut, wns
attended to.

Ashcroft, B. C, Oct. IC���What
may prove very important news arrived clown this week from Horsefly
to the eft'eot that rioh placor ground
had been struck near the head Watt ra
of Horsoily and in a section wnort*
no white man had over explored
before. The repoit is authentic to
ths extent that the new was sentdown
by a thoroughly reliable mining man
of Horsefly. The letter reads us
follows: Just a line to bay that a
party just in from tho headwaters of
Horsefly creek report a rioh find on a
large creek some eight or ten mil"s
beyond where any white men hud
ever been, at least there is uo sign.
They panned out considerable gold
and brought it with them. Their grub
stake gave out. Thoy will return
again before snow falls too deep aud
make nioru locutions. Every able-
bodied man is going. The best evidence is the golil brought down,
which 1 saw nnd weighod somo of it.
Bjb Campbell, who is an old liuker-
villc miner says: "Its a second Williams creek." The benches aie rioh
but they could not got bed rock in the
creek but get good prospect every*
where tbey panned. Parties ure goin*.;
up and I will wait here until they
return when I will know more about
it. Cariboo may surprise the people
yet. A spocial from 150-Mile House
to the Journal says a crowd iH leaving
there this morning for the headwaters
ol tho Horsefly. R. T. Waul just, in
from Horsefly says it is believed.to be
nil light and tho strike genuine as
reported.
OHIO REPUBLICANS.
Deleware, Oct. 111.���The opening
of the campaign here today by tho
Republicans was the most largely attended of years. The feature of the
occasion from the opening prayer of
President, Bnshonford, to the closing
speech of Senate" Hannn, was the remembrance of President McKinley
and the nppe.il for the support of
President Roosevelt. There was little
reference to s'ate nITnirs by Chairman
Warner or hy Nash and Nippeit, who
hoad the statu ticket, and none by
Senators Fornker and Hanna. When
Senator Foraker referred to President
Roosevalt's ?ntcrluliling   l'rof. Booker
Washington "as a representative ol
tbo colored race. " there wus quite a
demonstration. Tha greatest demonstration :if tho duy wns when Senator
Hanna declared that be did not intend
to quit polities or resigu us senator or
chairman of the Republican National
committee.

PLAYING A WAITING OAME.
Hon. Joseph Martin, ns n veteran
attorney, fully knows the value of
time in a criminal case, where in thc
event of a spoody trial, the oocused
would be certain of conviction. Time
wears the keen edge from public resentment, time softens the people's
���-lew of the crime, time disperses the
witnesses and impairs tbeir memory
of too circumstances, and in many
ases, where the guilt of the accused
Is obvious acquittals bave resulted
through tbe playing of a waiting
game. I*. is a device which is as
old as the law itself. It is evident
that Hon. Joseph Martin holds a brief
for tbe Dunsmuir government, and as
the edge of public resentment is still
very sharp lime is an essential to
soften the publio view of tbe government's sins of omission and commission and it is -lalpable that Premier Dunsmuir and his ministers are
playing a waiting game in the hope
of lengthening their official tenure.
Tbey are postponing tbe day when
tbey will be arraigned before the bai
of tbe house and tbe time when tbe
true bill found against them by the
people will be read. A fear is expressed In soma quarters that Dunsmuir and bis friends will endeavor to
fix the jury before whom tbey will be
tried and on whose verdloi they will
be relegated back to tbe peace aud
quietude of private life. Tbat there
may be some truth in this latter apprehension is shown in the recent announcement made by A. M. Smith,
M. P. P., wbo has bitberto affiliated
wilh the oppositionists, that he would
support the govemment. It would
be Interesting for tbe people to know
just what lt waa that caused Mr.
SmitI tc change hia politloal front.
It seems that it waa not necessary for
the government to announce its promised policy, which is to be bo bene
flclal to tbe publio, and :t is barely
possible tbat lt told him of its
intention in private, and so changed
bis views. Thero must have been
some potent reason for Mr. Smith to
beoome a political apostate, and tbe
public is on tiptoe awaiting with
bated breath an explanation wbich is
certainly due from bim. Thc all
important question now with the
Dunsrauir-Martln combine is how
many otber members of the opposition
are there who are ready to change
fronts politically. That the oabal
desires time to carry on those somewhat delicate negotiations is evidenced by their Hetormination to not
e.ill the house tog, titer at tho regular
time iu January, but rather to postpone that event for a month or perhaps two, three or four months later.
It ia no wonder, therefore that tho
Mephistopliolcan Murlin smiles
wisely when asked about the noliti
cal situation, for has he not a Dr.
Kii'n.t In Premier Dunsmuir and 11
nice, easy, gullible Marguerite in the
publln of British Columbia ?

tiuc oot the lumber to be used in the
smelter building.
In creeling the mill, Mr. Austin
said, lhe slow burning plan of construction iviil be utilized so as to reduce tlie chances of fire to the minimum. The Idea of Mr Austin is to
creel Wo lend furnaces of a oapaoity
uf 1,5 tons per dny The smelter wiil
be provided with all of the latest
labor saving devices, so ns to rednco
the handling ns much as possible and
so cat down the cost of smelting to
the very lowest figure. The furnaces
will be of Hugo size and of the regulation type. There will be from six
.0 cigLt long-bedded hand roasting
lmnaces, as the ore requires to be
roosted before it is put into the smelting furnaces.
An admirable luoorion has been
selected for the smelter. ' It will bo
built on a ll.it near a blnff 125 feet
high ot thc junction of Mark creek
and the St. Mary's river. This wili
give all the necessary dumping
ground for tho slag. It is the intention lo utilize a fall wilh a capacity
of nno horse power, closo by. for the
dilving tlio machinery. This will aid
in cutting down the expense of leduo-
ing tho ore It is anticipated that
the smeller, provided no serious setbacks occur to retard the work, will
be ready for operation some time next
spring,
Mr. Auslin Is smelter man of many

Siiuilikameen chiefly. He is directing work on the Kingston at Camp

*   TIIK FATHERHOOD OK 001).
(John  llurtt Morgan.)
One   Ood   and Father of   alI.--Eph.
4*. (i.
It is a noteworthy fact whatever
may be its explanation that the consciousness of the raco is just now
experiencing a general awakening to
the great and significant truth of the
Futheihood of Uod. It is also remarkable that this awakening has been us
rapid in its progress and as widespread in ns extent, as it has been
tardy iu its appearance. Perhaps nc
other great truth has ever gaiu*td
such widespread acceptance in so
short a lime. It seems to command a
foremost place in nearly every creed
in Christendom, and in not a fow
instances it would appeal to comprise
tho sum total of acknowledged faith.
But while it has thus become inwrought into the popular creed and Is
Hpoken of with easy familiarlity hy
overy tongue, it nniBt be observed that
its intorpietation iH by no mea-is uniform, and may in many cases fairly
be challenged. Multitudes of superficial thinkers perceiving tbe fact,
leap to thc conclusion that it can
have for the world but one meaning,
viz: that the Eternal aa Father of all
stands somehow commuted to tho salvation of every son of Adam, irrespective of thc life he may lead or the
character he may riovelop in this
present state of existeuce. Tbe tail*
acy oi this and analogous conclusion,
will perhaps appear from a few simple considerations.
Fatherhood unquestionably involve*
responsibility. As a father I am
bound to do my utmost to secure the
good of niy child. Hut this "utmost"
is limited by the naturo of my child
as an individual personality, nis
nature I am equally bound to respect,
and my efforts in his behalf, if wisely
dirootod, will pause upon the borderland of coercion. In lilio manner,
speaking with all reverence, "the
Father of all" while plodged to command His infinite resources of wisdom
and power to ooinpnss the redemption
of His creatures, must yet respect the
lawn which Bo has Himself made, and
halt upon tho threshed of the domain
of human choice. Therefore Ho Iuib
9aid, Whosoever will, let him take the
water of lifo freely, aud, Ye will not
coipe to ine, tnat yc might bave life
But If fatherhood carries with H
responsibility, what shall be said of
thc responsibility <>f eouehjp?
Let those who delight to console
themselves with Ihcir olnims upon
Hod's fatherly favor, consider His
claims upon ibeir obedience and love
bs children. Lot comparisons be
made hotweon the perfect standards of
the supreme will and tho negligence,
disloyalty and filial disobedience ot
tho uvorage man. In short let us look
at both uspects of this oherlshed relationship. It is well to rejoice in our
Father's love, lt is better to delight In
our own duty. Ood has done, is
doing and will continue to do His
part to the end of the age.   Of this wo

FOOD CURE
Results in Ohaege of Diet Are Wonderful*
"Hood food, properly selected, will,
iu my opinion, cure almost any ordinary disease. I want to tell you my
experience and of my recovery by the
selection of tlie proper diet. I am a
business woman, very closely couflned
indoors, with considerable care and
anxiety. Some time ago 1 had a
Severe oase of the grippe and after
recovering from it, had a serious lime
following, as many people do.
I waa unable to get well until i
changed my diet. leaving off Mocha
and Java ooffee and using the Postnm
Food Coffee io its plaee, and taking
up lirape-Nuts breakfast food. This
winter 1 have given both a fair and
continued trial and the results aie
superb. 1 am lestored to perfect
health and stiungtb,and as you claim.
I have a 'reserve force' bodily and
mentally, that carries me through
many hard plaoes.
1 cannot praise the food too much,
for it will, if used steadily, euro all
disturbances of the system caused by
thc congestions la grippe Is answerable for. A dish tbat contains the
most powerful rebuilding elements,
can be made as follows: Hot milk
brought to a boil, break in two fresh
eggs aud as Boon as the eggs set,
pour the boiling milk and egg* over
somo Orape-Nuts in a soup dish No
breakfast if meat call be so good.
1 use Urape-Nuts in tills way every
morning and have no sense of lack of
food all day. I have kept well and
remarkably free from cold all winter,
which I attribute to a fine oondition
of health, brought itbout by tbe nte of
the famous food anu of Postnm Food
C'oftce.' (Urape-Nuts are perfectly
cooked at factory and are usually
served oold, witb a little cream or
milk.) Mr. C. H. Woodward. 34

OPERATING IN MEXICO.
D. McMillan, late of Sandon, who
was in Nelson attending the session of
the Supreme court leit yesterday for
llishy, Arizona, and thenco to some
copper properties In whioh he is interested just across the line in old Mexico. MnMi'laii brought some handsome specimens of the ore that is
found 00 his claims to Nelson and the
samples have attracted much favor-
ublH comment from all those who
have been them. They consist of a
couple of pieces of pure native copper
and sonic pieces of malachite, azurite
and lu/uli, tbe latter of which is a
mineral used by the natives of tbe
country where it is found, for making
earrings and other ornaments. The
ore is of wonderful richness, it all
being perfectly free from impurities.
Mr. McMillan stated that the mines
where it ia found nre of great richness but have been hitherto inaccessible, but that a railway line has
been surveyed aud will be built at
once that will give driect communication with civilization. The mines
were all worked by the Aztecs, hundreds of years ago, the old workings
still being in good preservation.

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 wUli a
base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct 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 complele
control of the stove with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the back takes the cold air from
the floor and ejects it. .ntensely heated, through the top ^adrtng greatly
to the heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according to directions"we guarantee it to
consume all the gas contained in soft coal, thus deriving the benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkable saving of
fuel over any other stove on the market. The stove will hold fire from
24 to 48 hours without attention.
