Confessed Having Committed
a Heinous Crime.���Cries
for Mercy.
Birmingham, Ala., Aug. 7.���With
agonizing screams and his eyes bulg-
ing from his head, John Wesley Pennington, negro, was burned at the
stake near Enterprise, Ala., before a
crowd of BOO enraged and determined
c'tizens of Coffee county this morning, Tho mob was composed of both
whites and blacks and though the
so .Turing man pleaded for mercy and
frantically endeavored to break the
chains that tightly bound him, not a
trace of sympathy was shown on the
faces that peered at him through the
Sanies. Pennington bud committed a
brutal assault upon Mis. J. C. Davis,
wile o' one of IheJ most prominent
farmers of Coffey county, and had
confessed his guilt. The ciime was
committed Thursday afternoon last
week, while Mrs. Davis was gathering vegetables in her garden. Pennington choked the woman iuto in-
scnsbility, accomplished uis intention
and lied through the woods nearby. As
aeon as she regained consciousness,
Mis. Davis crawled to the house
and told her husband what had happened. A large possee was quickly
organized with blood hounds, and
they chased the negro until early
this morning when ho was captured
in a swamp. He was bound hand
and foot and taken to the Davis home
for identification. News of the assault had been spread for milts
around Enterpirse and every farmer
in the neighborhood had joined in the
pursuit. When the posse arrived this
morning with Pennington at least ,100
persons were gathered near the Davis
residence. A great shout went up
when the prisoner arrived, but at ��
signal the men withdrew to the
woods and quietly awaited the result
of the meeting of Pennington and
Mrs. Davis. Mrs. Davis recognized
him as her assailant and the negro
broke down and wept. He admitted
having committed the assault and
pleaded for mercy, but he was dragged from the bouse to the woodB where
the crowd had gathered. Evidently
expecting the confession several citizens had driven an iron into the
ground and as the captors appeared
with Pennington, both whites and
blacks were piling brushwood around
the .-.take. Tho negio saw his doom
and with a scream of terror fell in a
faint. He was quickly revived and
drugged to the stake while the crowd
stood Bilently by. The frightened
man waa limp and had to be held np
while the chains were fastened
around his neck and body. A match
was applied to the pile and with oil
to feed upon the tiny flame soon burst
into a roaring fire. The terrified
negro pleaded for mercy In the most,
agonizing tones antl prayed 'o Hod
lhat those around him might perish.
He then calleJ. upon His Maker for
forgiveness aud as the flames leaped
up and lapped his neck, an unearthly
shriek was beard and the man's eyes
almost bulged out of their Bockcts.
By this time the Are had gained such
headway that nothing could be seen
except a wriggling motion in tbe cir-
elo of fire. A sllenco followed and in
a few minuteB the flames had subsided sufficiently to show that. Pennington's head had fallen forward and
hung limp over the iron chain. His
body was quickly consumed and nothing remained hut a pile of ashes. The
crowd then dispersed.

Berlin, Aug. ".���A man claiming
to be Mr. Holies of San Francsco, but
who registered at the Kaiserhof as
Mr. Holies of Boston, was arrested
today for presenting at a branch of
the Dradener Bank, checks identified-
as part of the booty obtained hy the
robbery of the American Express Com
pany's office in Paris during the
month of April. Bolles claims he acquired tbe cheoks legitimately.
Three masked burglars entered the
American Express office tbe night of
April 36th, and escaped with 3,000
francs after dynamiting the safe. Tne
burglars left behind them a complete
outlit of American burglars' tools.
Before beginning work on the safe,
the burglars bound and gagged the
colored porter who _was asleep in the
second storey. They overlooked a
packet of F'rench bills and a number
of gold pieces. A feature was that
the policeman ou duty in the viciniw
heard and saw nothing of the burglars, though the latter worked loudly, and the sound of the two explosions necessary to open the safe was
sufficient to awaken the porter on the
top storey of a building across the
street, and cause him to descend and
search his own liouse for intrudeis.
The express company's office is located
in the center of Paris, has a long
frontage faoing the opera houBe and
is Jsurrounded by business houses.
"Tom Edward," said to be a native
of Chicago and described as leader of
the gang, was arrosted the following
morning, and George Humher, reported to he the second member of the
gang, was taken into custody May I.
In his pockets was found burglar's
tools and a number of c leeks that had
heen stolen f.-om the express office.
On June 8th the police of Paris arrested a notorious woman, named May
Churchill, known as "Chicago May,"
who was suspected of complicity
with "Tom Edwards" in the robbery.
Finally in June last "Eddie"' (Juerin,
of Chicago, was also arrested by tbe
French police on the ehargo of being
one of the three burglars concerned
in the express company's robbery,
Guerin, it, was said by the police, iB
the same man who ten years ago
robbed the Banit of Lyons, Prance,
of 50.000 francs. The police of Chi
cago assisted in the identiiication of
Gueiin by meaus of tho llett.illon

ago by the French police.

gold bullion wai:_stolen. The identity
of the suspect is not known. Tho

A two hundred thousand dollar
white marble block will, in the near
future, be one of the things that Nelson will have to boast of. lt will be
built with English and French capital represented by Ernest Mansfield.
It will bo of white marble throughout.the interior floors, walls and ceilings being of that material. It will
be the handsomest building in tbe
Province and while many in the Dominion have cost several times $-00.���
000 it is doubtful if any of them will
be more beautiful. Work will commence within tli./ce months and it
will take ths best part of a year to
t omplcte the building whicli will be
erected on the lots on West Haker
street now occupied by the offices of
Mr. Mansfield and T. G. Procter.
When, sometime over a year ago,
Mr. Mansfield purchased tho marble
quarry opposite Kas'o from the West
Kootenay Brick & Lime Company, it
was his mte.ition to push toe sale ot
the marble, which expert! stated was
as line as any quarried on the American continent. At present New York
and other eaBtern cities use a great
deal of marble from California,which,
io the east, like California w!ne,passes
off as the European article. Mr.
Mansfield figures that if marlile can
be carried ac.oss the southern part
of the continent it can be made to
pay when carried across the northern
part. He is now prepared to open
his quarry on a large scale aod to
make a bid for the marble business
of tho east. To demonstrate the mar-1
vellous quality of the marble aud the,
various uses to] wlrch it can be ap- ���
plied, both as a building stono and
in interior deeoratioi s, he haB decided
to build a block entirely of the
stone. It will be elected on tbe two
lots owned by Mr. Mansfield on West
Baker street. Besides the marble advertising feature the erection of the
block will be a glowiDg tribute to the
faith Mr. Mansfield and b-s associates
have in the futoro of this city. Mr
Mansfield left laBt evening via the
C. P. R. for Now York, where he will
take the North German Lloyd steamer
Kaiserin Maria Theresa on tbe 13th
inst for the Old Country. His trip has
largely to do with the block but also
concerns hiB mining interests. On
Tuesday he received a cablegram stating that the money for the building
was ready and he goeB to complete the
organization. He will be away
ahout two months and upon his return work will commence. Polishing
niacliiuory will ba installed at tbe
qua cry to prepare tne marble. It will
tuke the best part of a year to complete the building. Tbe front elevation will bo extremely handsome and
of massive design.
According to the plans prepared by
Mossrs. Cune & McDonald, and
taken by Mr. Mansfield to E-gland
to lay before his associates, tbe front
will bo of finely bus'icd und chiseled
marble and all the columns, cornice
and architraves of polished marble.
An arcade will run through thecentei
of the building ten feet wide, tne
building itself being B0 by 120 feet.
The entrance to the arcade will be
through a massive arch with polished
columns on either sido. There will
bo a ceiling over the arcade for 17
feet from the front, whero it will encounter the lirst of two light, wells
which will illuminate the interior
offlcos and rooms. Over the wells
there will bo a glaps roof and on the
level of tho third ceiling it will bo
paniii'llod with arch glass. Between
the light wells, at tho second and
third floors, there will be bridges
connecting the opposite Bides of thc
bnilding betweon the elevator and
staircase.   The interior of the  wells
will be made beautiful, with moulded
and Huted pila iters which will run the
full height. They will of polished
malblo. The stair ease will also be
of polished marble.
The plau of tho intcrio- has not yet
been definit-'ly decided upon and it
will probably be determined after Mr.
Mansfield tecelves information as to
the tenants that will occipy the
rooms. Everything inside will be cf
polished marble. The decorations of
tbe front elevation will consist of
turned balusters at tbe top and bold
pilasters carried the full height of
tbe second and third stories. There
will be marble balconies at the central windows of the same two stories.
The party walls will be of rock
faced marble and the rear elevation
will be of bushed marble with rook
faced pilasters. Commodious quarters will be provided by Mr. Mans-
fiel for a stock exchange. He will
p-.ohably call the block the Nelson
Stock Exchange and he hopes to have
all the brokerage aod agency firms
inl '. clly gatnered within his mar-
tie walls in order to centralize that
branch of the city's business. If
there is any demand for scores he will
provide them. 11 all the available
rooms a.e occupied by tenants,
it will give a return of over ten
per cent, on tbe money invented. Tbe
b.rlding will be lighted throughout
wi.h gas.
When completed tbe block will be,
by long odds, the most unique in Can-
da and it would take quite a journey
in any land to find another three
storey building composed entirely of
marble, the only woodwork in it be
ing the doors and window sashes.
Lots of Little Mishaps That Are Kept
Very Quiet.
The water is in such a hurry down
at Bonnington Falls and thereabouts
that it is apt to play the mischiof
with any small boat that is steered
into it with inexperienced hands.
Accidents occur but the victims prefer saying nothing about them when
they return to town. Some men
who live down tnere, however, have
no such scruples and lately they have
been saving lives at a rate that
makes the hair-breadth escapes lose
all their excitement as tar as they are
concerned. They tell sonic good stories. Three ultra religions ladies from
Nelson wero enjoying tho grandeur of
the rcenury and thought i*_would appear to better advantage if they got
mixed up in it, They were going out
in a bout when one of the residents
of the neighborhood warned them
that the water waa very treacheious.
They got back at him with a missionary talk calculated to make a Christian out of a stone nntl informed him
that unliiie bim,they could f.ce death
fearlessly at any time, as they were
prepared. Thoy also stated that tbe
all kind Pioivdencc would look after
tbem nnd Ucop them out of danger.
Tbey did get mixed up witli the scenery in a very wet manner but managed to gurgle out a few piercing
scream as they clung to the boat antl
floated about in the eddies near the
shore. The man rescued them and as
be had them lined up on terra firma
remarked that it wns all very well to
welcome death and to truRt to Providence to keep the boa. undei them
but he imagined their lungs wore just
as strong as those of other victims of
accidents who mado no special claims
to being devout ChrUiains. The ladies culled him a "horrid thing,"

Province Snows Clear Bill of Health
But Precautions Are Unrelaxed.
Dr. Fagan, provincial medical
health officer, informed the Colonist
yesterday that the last vestige of
smallpox has been stamped out in
the province. Sinco last November
over one hundred oases have b::en

at diffoient times, at the following
places, Nanaimo, Nelson, Rossland, Revelstoke, Cranbrook, Michel,
Fernie, Spencowood, Moyie, Pbeonix,
CJuesnel and on the Naas and Skeena
rivers, but by the prompt application
of peventativo measures the pestilence
was kept within bounds, antl its
spread effectually checked. Although
the health officers bave the satisfaction to report that the province is now
free from the disease, they have by
no means relaxed their vigilance
with regard to it. Smallpox exists iu

that the strikers were not interfering
with the fishermen, as no fish were
running, and tbat tbo canners and
police had laid a trap to lead them to
commit offense. Deputy Attorney General McLean in reply held that the
men were guilty, possibly of murder, by their own testimony, and that
they wore loose fish who would break
bail and leave the country. Mr. Senkler held, on the othor hand, that, as
the only reason Judge Ma-tin gave
for refusing bail was that the strike
was not settlud, settlement of the
trouble removed all validity of objection. ,Iutlg_ Walkem said that ho

J. Q. NELSON, Manager.
Furniture Dealers,
Undertakers and Embalmers.
The    Dominion     autboriites    have
instructetl tlie ninniiger of tbe government assay office at Vancouver to purchase   gold direct   from   the   miners,
thus maki-g the establishment a purchasing as well   as   an   assay   office.
Hitherto   the   Vancouver banks   have
purchased the assay   ollice certificates
at three-quarters of ono per cent, dis
count,  but   now   this  shave   will  be
done awuy witli and  the   assay  office
will give Cheques nn the bank of Mod
treal payable  at   par.    The only   deductions  will be   tbe  assay   and  the
mini charges.    Besides this there  is a
one   per  cent, rebate on   the   royalty
collected by the government, which is
returned lo the miners when they sell
their gold dust at Hie Vancouver oflice.
Another matter, which   should   ic-
dound to    the advantage   of the Vancouver oiiice, is a recent ruling of the
U. S. Secretary .if the Treasury   that
gold dust   antl goltl bullion   mined in
foreign countries, antl   sent   into  the
United Static foi assay and sale, must
be accompanied by a   consular invoice
and enter   subject to   customs regulations, the same as other merchandise.
This will result, we believe, in keeping
considerable gold away   from   Seattle
and diverting it to Vancouver. Ill TELEPHONE 142
is held that gold dust is not a medium
of exchange between bankers, and is
therefore classed as merchandise and
as such must conform to the laws
governing merchandise entering the
republic. Tho invoices made out hy
tho consuls antl the cn.toms fees,
therefore, undci the ruling, must be
paid and will constitute an additional
charge on gold sent into the U. S.
By this ruling thc secretary of the
treasury bas unwittingly played into
tbo bands of those wbo are endeavoring to se-jure for Canada some of the
bonofiU of the goltl which is being
extracted in Canadian territory. To
be sure, there will bo a small charge,
for the goltl passing in bond from
White l'ass to Skagway, or down the
Yukon river from Dawson to St.
Michaels, but this should not equal the
consular antl cuslums fees.
It has been suggested, in order to
get rid of this bunding charge, that
an assay office be established at Dawson, but the game is not worth the
candle. Tbe latest action of the Dominion in directing a direct purchase
of gold will accomplish what is desired���the marketing of the Yukon gold
in Canada and the collection of tho
royalty on a larger proportion of tho
metal extracted than has hitherto been
the case. Those who have paid the
royalty up north, will, through the
assay office at Vancouver, receive a
one per cent, rebate, which is worth
looking after.
While it is not possible that all the
gold taken out of the Yukon placers
will go to Vancouver it is certain,
under tho policy which is being pursued by tbe Federal authorities, that
tbe quantity will be largely increased.
Miners, as a rule, spund consideiable
of tbeir goltl where they market it,
and the effect of a slcatly stream of the
precious metal Bowing into this province cannot fail to be of great benefit
to not only the province but the Dominion. The go.d mined in California
revilied anil nddcil largely lo thc pros-
perity of the whole repnblio and that
whicli is now coming and which is to
come into Vancouver is sure to have a
wide reaching anil helpful Influence
on both the province and the Dominion. The pity is that thu Federal authorities did not take advantage of
the opportunity that presented it
self Immediately after the Yukon
placers began to yield their treasure.
Had this been done the country would
have been a good many millions of
dollars richer than it Ib at present,
and Seattle would not havo been built
up into a great city on gold mined in
Canadian soil. Had this been done
Vancouver and Victoria would now
have the increase which has gone to
the American city, lt is, howe/er,
better late than never to adopt a policy that is benelicial and the Federal
government should be duly credited
for what it has done to divert iho
stream of gold so that most of lt must
flow into their own territory.

thoy came from   No. 4 level,  600  feet
below the  surfa.e, showed a value of
over ��H to the ton of oro for   a  width
of tr, feet.    The  importance   of   these
developments will at once he apparent
when it is recalled  that   the  average
value of the ore lrom which past profits have heen derived was only about
-3 IDs per   ton.  The secretary further
states that the rate of operating profit
today is between BB0,000  and   ��60,000
j?or year, and it is thought   that  thia
wilt he further increased by  some   50
per cent,   upon   the   installment of a
full cyaniding plant.   It is his belief,
based   on   the   ore in   sight  and   the
developments at depth,   that the Ymir
shares  are  worth  considerably more
than thoir present quotation,   but   if,
as there is no   reason   to a doubt, the
vein continues equally  wide and good
to the 1,000 foot   level,  a  very   large
appreciation of the value of the shares
may he looked for.
The Ymir mines, since the company
was licensed hy the province in October, 18iiH, havo been steadily and scientifically developed. The best mining talent available has been employ
ed in the work and the result is
shown in the dividends which have
and aro being paid. It is no wonder,
therofore, that the secretary speaks
hopefully of the future and looks forward confidently to a very largo ap.
preciation in the value of the shares.
The conviction ia becoming firmly
fixed both in London and in Kootenay
that the company has in its mine,
located in tho Nelson mining division,
perhaps the most valuable mining
property in British Golumiba. The
fects that, tho values are increasing
with depth and that the deepest workings, iu ore, aie only 800 feet
deep and that, such good results have
beeu obtain, d at so near the grass
roots, would indicate that much larger
profits will he made when the ore in
the deeper levels has been reached and
taken out.
The succi .ss of the Ymir mines and
others in l'.ritish Columbia should and
will atone for some of tho failuros
that have, been made by Hritish investors iu some sections of tho Kootenays although we believe that most of
the lack ~f success is due to placing men
in charge of properties who were not
component to fill them. In some quarters it Heems to be the fashion to pnt
men, w-'.ho are cither without experience or who have failed in everything
which they attomptod, in charge of
minesv .on the theory tbat anyone is
capable of making a prospect a divi-
dead pa;rer, when it has boen demonstrated, time and again, that suoh a
task requires experience, technical
knowled ge and a great deal of ability.
The directorate of the Ymir mines
evidently believed in placing thoir
affairs in the hands of properly trained men and the results have demonstrated their wisdom in doing so.
element of uncertainty abont her   future.    One of the signs   of   this conil-
dence is about to be manifested   by  a
citii-e- of Nelson   who purposes erecting a   palace-like,    maible   business
block at a cost  of   tf'-'00, OOOi   It  will
be   tba   handsomest   and   most cost ly
structure  in   the   interior of   British
Columbia and   will   rival   the   large
buildings of Victoria   and   Vancouver
in  sizs   and   appcaance.    Those   who
have "dreamt that they dwelt in marble halls" can realize  their visions if
they   "have   the  price"   whiib    the
owner of the marble   block   will  ask
for rooms when it is completed.    The
marble   will   be   quarried    from   thj
mountains of the Kootenays, too,   and
will be   more comfortable   and   home
like   than   if it were taken from   the
quarries of Carrara. Italy.    Mr. Mansfield hy thus showing his faith in thc
town is a publio benefactor and is entitled   to  tha   commendations   of his
fellow townsmen.    Besides whal.   better monument could   he   leave behind
him when   his timo   comes to cross to
the   great   beyond   than   a    splendid
building, as it   would perpetuate   his
name and memory much   longer  than
tbe same sum invested in a large   and

oeneral   Manager.
Extract from Mr, D. R. Wilkie, the
Oeneral Manager's speech, bearing
ou the Canadian Assay and Mint question :
It is fortunate that our political parti ea are not of the Bourbon type, that
they are not tied down to theories
unci Shibboleths, or bv the prejudices
of     political      ancestry,     but     have
adopted  policies    to suit  the   ever
changing conditions of a new country
and to encourage tlio development of
our great natural resources by the
granting of bounties to iron and steel
producers, Ily restricting the export of
saw logs ami pulpwood in their raw
condition, by encouraging the refining of nickel, by enlarging our waterways, by encouraging the construction
of colonization railways, and last,
hut by no means least, by the adoption of a policy that will create an
attractive home market for tbe product of our own gold and silver mines,
through the establishment of Government ussav ollices unci of a. branch of
the Royal'Mint. Much has been said
outside of Parliament against the proposed establishments, which however,
have been unanimously approved of
by the House of Commons and by the
Senate. I do not concur in the objections whicli have been raised to those
prelects, on the contrary, I am more
than over convinced, from a patriotic,
a sentimental and an economic point
of view, that no time Hhoulcl he lost in
completing thwir establishment. The
advantage ot attracting to our own
markets the producers of an ovei increasing output of gold and silver
won from our own territory, by the
establishment of Government assay
offices is self evident; the alarm lest
we have an over-production of gold
and silver coin through tbe establishment of a Mint, is needless; our present excellent currency systum will not
bo interfered with. Canadian gold
assayed and refined bv Americans
finds a market today in the shape of
U. S. bais or U. S. coins, whichever
is applied for by the depositors.
Whv should a Dominion Govornmont
assay and a Dominion Government
certificate, in the shape of an impression of Hie Majesty's head upen
each coin and upon each ingot debase
their value or divert their course?
It is not necessary or expedient thut
everything i" the shape of gold ci
silver purchased ut the Government
assay offices should ne coined into soy-
eloigns or decimal coinage���such is
not the course of events in Great Britain or in gold-producing countries
such as Australia and the United
States, where Government mints now
exist. Much of our Canadiau gold
does, under American auspices, uud
will, under Canadian auspices, find
Its market in tbe shape of ingots or
bars. Its coinage into sovereigns,
half sovereigns and decimal pieces
will not be compulsory. The profit
in the coinage of silver currency will
probably encourage our Government
to devise steps, which will lead to tbe
substitution of our own Canadian
coinage for the large amount of United States silver which now forms the
principal part, of the metallic currency
of British Columbia. Such a demand
for our silver coinage would, of itself,
go far to meet the expenses cf thc proposed Mint. The profit to the United
States Government on their silver coinage in circulation iu Canada is estimated at from $100,000 to $200,000, a
profit entirely lost to our Govei ninent.
Canadian sovereigns will circulate
side by side with the product of the
Royal Mints of England and Australia wherever a British sovereign
will pass as currency, and will advertise to each possessor, for thc time
being, the wealth of the Dominion in
that precious metal.
It was not until 1849 that tha value
of the gold and silver products of the
United States exceeded the present
gold and silver product of Canada, 5,1
years after United States assay offices
and United States mints had bi.en
establsihed. There are at this present moment three, if not four,Government mints in the United States, besides eight Government assay offices,
and this with a total output of gold
in 1807 of $57,303,000 only, us against
a present output in Canada of about
$40,000,000, without one such establishment. Seattle bas grown from a
town of 28,350 in 1890 to a city ot 80.-
671 111 1900, muiuly through its trade
with the mining regions of Canada,
and many millions, tbe product of
Canadian mines, have been expended
in its development, millions that
might, just as well have remained
wilh us. No less than 6,01)0 deposits
were marie in the United States assay
ofiice in Seattle during the year 100o,
the great bulk of tbem consisting of
Canadian gold. The assayer in charge
in his annual report for 1900 says:
''The value of the deposits amounted to 813,747,011, an average of 83,-
300.91 to each depost. The major
portion of the bullion handled was of
foreign poduction,originates from the
placer mines in the Northwest Terri-
tores of Canada." Don't let us hear
anything more of opposition to a policy that will build up the cities of
oui Pacific coast and which will open
up a wide und profitable trude for our
own manufacturers,our merchants and
our agriculturists, and tbat will be
another and an ossential forward
