Eleventh   Year
A Trainload  of Immigrants
Meet a Most Horrible
Perish In Collision or Slowly
Burn In the Wreckage.
Detroit, Nov. 27.���One of tho most
disastrous wrecks in the history of
the Wabash railway or of any other
Michigan railway occurred at Senaoa,
Mich., a small way station about 70
miles southwest: of Detroit between 7
and 7.80 tonight. Train No. 8, an immigrant train, with two engines westbound collided under a full head of
steam, with train No. 4 eastbound
alinut one mile from Seneca. The result was tbat five or six conches on
tho emigrant train were orushed
and its load of human freight sent
into eternity in a moment while one
coach on train No. 4, which consisted
of a parlor car, dining and baggage
car, were also telesooped and four
dead bodies have been taken from the
wreck. It is not known how many
people there were on thc immigrant
train but the death list will be anywhere (rom 00 to 150.
The people on thnt train were
caught like rats in a trap and crushed.
Then tbe wreck caught fire and these
who were not instantly killed were
slowly roasted to death and none of
the spectators who quickly gathered
from tbe farm houses nearby, were
aide to give aid. The whole immigrant train was soon consumed by the
tlamcs. every person on the train, it is
now reported, was killed. Ihe farmers residing along the track rushed
among the blazing mass to. rescue
those who they thought might be
alive. Tbe bodies hauled ont of Ihe
wreck were taken to nearby farm
houses which are filled witli dead and
a large number of injured were taken
to a hospital at Peru, Ind.
Along the track long lines of burned
bodies lie covered with blankets, presenting a gruesome sight. It may be
tbat the exact number of killed or
wounded will nover be known. At
present it is impossible to get any
thing resembling a list of thc injureu
from Seneca. It is said hero that the
accident was the result of a misunderstanding of orders. It is reportod in
Seneca tbat No. 4 should have waited
at Seneca station and No. 13 should
liave taken the siding. This was
done. Then the crash eanie. The
net result is that one whole train, No.
13, is burned, the engines are complete wrecks on both trains and on
No. 1 the coaches between the dining
nnd the baggnge cars are crushed into
kindling wood.
Expresses Regret For   Anything  Said
Not Approved liy the Church.
Chicago, Nov. 27.���The announcement was made today oy Thomas A.
Moran, attorney for the Ilev. Archbishop Feban, tbat tlio sentence of excommunication which was pronounced

This is expected to put an end to the
case against tho deposed priest and
the injunction proceedings begun

may bave glvon to our faithful Catholic people, I sincerely regret whatever
I may have said disrespectful to your
eminence and most llev. Archbishop

The cardinal thereupon further
advised with the archbishop and as
soon HH the details are al tended to.
which will be within a few days, the
sentence of ex-communie.ition which
Was pronounced against Father
Crowley will be recalled.

Admission of Chinese.
Washington, Nov. 27. ���Wu Ting
Fang, the Chinese minister, called
upon Piesident Roosevelt today. It
waa the first time he had seen the
president since ho took the oath of
office at Buffalo. In the course of an
interview which took place in tbe
cabinet room, the reennctment of the
Chinese Exclusion act was discussed
When the Chinese minister emerged
from the White House, he declined to
tell a group of newspaper men
whether his government was protesting against tbo enactment of the Exclusion law. All we want, said he,
is justice and fairness. As he was
saying this the minister was greeted
by Senator Foster, of Washington,
who is himself very much interested
ln the act Senator, said the minister,
turning to him, you aro a fair man,
remomber that justice aud right have
uot either color nor race. We do not
ask for favors, we only ask for
In the course of his conversation
with the newspaper men Minister Wu
suggested that he would be willing to
meet any three of the American
editors who favored Chinese exclusion
and debate tbe question before an impartial tribunal.

London, Nov. 27.���Tho Maiqnis of
Lansdownc, socrotary of state for
foreign affi.irs, speaking at Darling-
i ton last night, leterred to the extraordinary keenness of the competition
for the world's markets as requiring*
the greatest precaution in questions of
foreign policy.
Referring to the negotiations with
the United States Lord Lamduwne
said : We desire to maintain the most
cordial relations with the United
States, and he said he was sure that
the recent expressions of Secretary of
State Hay and Jos. II. Cboate, United
States ambassador to Great Britain,
at the annual banquet of the Chamber
ot Commerce in New York were reciprocated on this aide of the water.
Like our brothers across the ocean,
said Lord Lansdowne, we regard the
distinguished man who has succeeded
to the presidency of the United States
with the friendliest predisposition.
With icfeicnce to the Isthmian
canal negotiations tho secretary of
state for foreign affairs, expressed
himself as happy to ke able to say
thnt a new chapter bad been opened.
Both goverumiits wero at this moment
engaged in fresh negotiations concerning which he could only Bay the
omens seemed propitous.
Throughout thc negotiiations, continued the speaker, the quostion has
been discussed from both sides in no
narrow or one sided spirit, but with
a genuine rieBire on our part that this
great enterprise should be conducted
to a successful end and that the principle of the neutrality of the canal,
for which we have contented, should
bo maintained, that the canal should
be open and free to the commerce of
the world and that these objects
should be achieved under conditions
honorable and convenient to both
sides alike.
Lurd Lansdowue made hopeful
reterence to the South Afrloan war.
He protested against the misrepresentations of the pro-Boers and said the
incalculable mischief, arising therefrom found a striking illustation in
the excitement produced in the continental press by the speeches of Joseph
Chamberlain, colonial secretary, at
Edinburgh, in which he Lord Lansdowne, found no suggestion of

the corner of King and Bay streets

Policy Will Be Deteimined on December 18th.
W. A. Macdonald, a director of the
Nelson Tramway Co., was yesterday
asked whether the Tramway was to
suspend operations as it had been reported that it would in a few days.
Mr. Macdonald said that it was true
that the employees had reoeived notice
that their services would nut be required after Friday, Nov. 20th, but he
had since learned that C. S. Drum-
mood would be here from London,
Eng., about December 18th and that
arrangement had been made to continue operating the lines until Mr.
Drummnnd would arrive.
Mr Macdonald expressed regret
that the bylaw recently put before tho
electors had not received the necessary
three-fifths majority to put it into
effect, as it would have enabled the
Tramway company to make more advantageous trims with the West Kootenay Power and Light company than
at present, besides giving the citizens
a light hy which tbev could at least
see to road. He gave it as his opinion
that the adverse criticism to which
the bylaw was subjected was of such
a nature as to obscure the real issue
befoie the people and to disguise the
benefits that the passing of the bylaw
would have oonferred upon the citizens with reference to the lighting
question and incidentally npon the
Tramway company. Had thc people
thoroughly understood that it was
only a temporary arrangement, lor a
year, the result would have been
different. ���
Speaking of the patronage the company had received,Mr. Macdonald said
that thiB had been very good. The
company was well pleased with the
general support the pocple had given
the street railway. The patronage
had boen, in numbers using the lines,
over 50 per oent. more than it had
been in the previous year but the
increase in population of Nelson bad
not been so rapid as the company had
hoped and the heavy expenses for
power would have to be lightened or
it appeared to him that there would
be nothing for it but to suspend operations.
The street railway, he said, would
therefore continue in operation until
Mr. Druminond ai rived, when a meeting wonld be held and the future
course of thc company deoided.

Chamo, or itB vioinity where it was
olaimed a party of Liberals under
General Porras had received quite recently a fresh supply of arms anil
ammunition. San Paolo and Ilarbacoa are known here to be Liberal
strongholds and places very easy to
defend, while to cross the bridge
spanning the Chagres river, now
swollen,wbb next to impossible for an
attacking force. The feat was accomplished, however, but the reason the
Liuerals abandoned Ilarbacoa is not
marie clear. The death rate on the
government side was very great, many
bodies falling inlo the river. An attempt was also made to make a detour on the river in boats but the
Chagres was swollen, the boat were
capsiscd and many men were
General Castro commanded tho government force at Ilarbacoa. General
Alban tried to get a train yesterday
morning to convey 200 men to the
scene of the engagement at Barbaeoa
but Capt. Perry of thc Iowa, said that
not a single armed man would be
allowed to enter the train.
Thc feeling here against foreigners,
pariitcularly the Americans, runs
high. A special train to convey General Alban alone and unarmed awaited the arrival for hours of the corning train from Colon, but on thc arrival of the latter at 0 o'clock in the

among whom were several oltlciers
with the news that the government
troops had victoriously crossed the
bridge at Ilarbacoa, a special train
was net dispatched aud General Alban
remained at Panama. At 8.30 p. m.
yesterday a large procession headed
by a band of music marched in an
orderly manner all over the oity of
Panama shouting General Alban's
praises and proclaiming that the death
blow had been given to the Liberal
cause in this department.
It was learned on thc highe't
authority this afternoon that General
Jeffries is with General A loan on the
Colon side of Barbaeoa and that 300
men from Panama aro now marching
to join them

British Columba should keep constantly on lilo up-to-date filatistios
regarding the copper markets of the

customs duties, freight rates, etc.
Mr. Ilrewer expressed his belief that
British Columbia was so situated geographically that the capitalists could
carry Dn a profitable business in refining and manufacturing copper from

Pacific. Tbe copper ore produced in
tbe province at present is a mere

we are advancing and this gives
promise when conditions change for
the better that the mining industry
will grow much more rapidly than
ever before.
On the whole there is much to la-
thankful for and the observation of
the day should be marked by a grateful spirit ana with devout thanks to
thc Omnipotent for ilis gracious
There will be no issue of The-Miner
on tomorrow morning. Tin- Miner
force desired to observe Thanksgiving
Day and out of deference to their
wishes an issue will be skipped. No
paper was issued from this office last
year on Thankgiving day. It was
then an evening paper. As most of the
work ol getting up a morning paper
is done the day before,in order that
everyone employed may be given a
chance to observe the holiday the issue
of Friday morning will be rnissod.
This is Thanksgiving day, an occasion set apart each year by proclamation for returning thanks lo the Giver
of All for the bounteous favors and
many blessings vouohsafed and to
pray to be kept from evil and for a
coiitinutnec of "our daily bread."
At least that is the spirit which the
day is set apart for, thought a few
depart form it and simply make it an
occasion of feasting. Riving little heed
to thc real significance of the day.
One feature of thc day in Canada is
that it Is the occasion for family reunions, the time when the members
gather under thc old home roof tree.
from far and near, for the purpose of
holding fraternal reunions and observing thc day with devout spirit. Mixed
with these devotions there is the
deep pleasure of once again communing with kith and kin which
thnlls and leaves a feeling In the
heart which is like no other experienced by mankind. These reunions
are the embodiment of the family
spirit and the devotion and love.which
one member bears for the rest of his
kin, is a dominant characteristic ot
the Anglo-Saxon, and is one of the
secrets of the dominance of the race.
Canana is about the only important
British country in which the Thanksgiving festival is observed. It is
cousin germane to the harvest festival
observed In the ehnrehes of Great
Britain where it is purely religions
and in which tho Btatc does not participate. The Uriton's real autumnal holiday comes earlier in the-year
in tho bank holiday popularly known
us St. Lubbock's day, in honoi of its
launder, but there is no real religions
sentiment attached to it ns is the case
with our day. Here it carries the
earnest religious feeling of most of
the people, who, while it recognizes
no state church and endorses no particular creed, still is participated
in by all. It is in keeping with lofty
national ideals and sentiments. It
is distinctly a Canadian holiday, although the Puritans were Ihe first
modern observers of it.
The people of Canada have much to
lie (harmful for. They have garnered
one of the most bountiful harvests in
the history ai the Country, and the
prices of farm products are high
enough to leave a good margin of
profit. Tin- manufacturing industries
have been kept busy during the year
and in some lines factories havo been
kept going night and day to keep
pace witb tlio orders. The foreign exports have been larger than heretofore. The railway and steamship traffic has been the largest yet
enjoyed hy the common carrieis in
nny yeor since the foundation of the
Dominion. There has been plenty of
employment for all who could work
and at increased wages. The,number
of business failures have been smaller
than usual and the amounts involved
in these have not been large. The
good times have been steady during
the year and all the signs point to a
continuance of prosperity. In tho mining section of British Columbia there
have been troubles, but mine owners
are adapting themselves to the
changed conditions and tho year will
show for the whole of Southern
liritisii Columbia an increase in production over the previous year. It is
satisfactory to know that under
Miinenhat      adverse     oiroumstances
Hon. J. D. Prentice, minister of
finance, goes to London for the purpose of floating the loan or a portion
of the $o,0011,01)11 debentures authorized
under tlie act entitled the "llritish
Columbia Public Works Loan Aot,
1901." It will be remembered that
The Miner stated several weeks since
lhat Mr. Preutice was about t'i go to
Loudon to float the loan, but this
wns denied by sonic of the government
ogan.-,, which stated that he was going
east for the pmpose of meeting his
wife and that he had no intention of
visiting London. It is evident th.it
the government has a great deal of
personal interest in the several railways to he subsidized under the provisions of this act, and is determined
to hold the reins of official power as
long as possible to the end that the
Subsidies may be disbursed in a proper
manner���from their standpoint. The
premier has large interests on Vancouver island and is said to be particularly solicitous about the railway
which is to be subsidized under the
provision of this act. This is the
road which is to be extended from
the present terminus of the Esquimau
nnd Nanaimo railway to tho northern
end of Vancouver island, a distance of
210 miles. It was charged that Mr.
Prentice went east for the purpose of
seeing the management of the C. P.
_. as to the governmont policy for
the railway which is to he extended
from Vancouver, via Chilliwack and
Hope, to Midway, a distance of 330
miles. The presumption is that he has
seen the proper parties and that he
has been loaded up with data and a
railway policy and that he will, if
possible, raise the money in London
on the debentures.
There was no necessity whatever
for Mr. Prentico'B visit to the Old
Country. Hon. J. H. Turner, who
has been finance minister ot the province, and who arranged the several
loans made on behalf of the province
during a number of years past, is in
London as the agent-general for British Columbia. Had the task of selling
the provincial debentures been dole-
gated to him it would seem, from his
previous experience and success in
such negotiations, tbat he would be
ablo to accomplish the task to much
greater advantage than Mr. Prentice
and the expense of tho lattor's trip to
London would havo been avoided.
The time, too, is inopportune for
raising money on British Columbia
security in London. Owing to the
collapse of the Whitaker Wright companies, thc strike in the Rossland
cairp, the two per cent, tax on tho
yield of the mines and oilier things,
the province is in bad odor in London,
and linnncers say it will be next to
impossible- nt present to raise the
money there, and it looks ns though
the honorable gentleman is on a fool's
errand, and one whose only result
will be a considerable hill of expense
to the province.

Several days since a brief cable
from London announced that the Manitoba Liquor act had boen upheld by
tbe Imperial Privv council. Tbe full
text of the decision will not be known
for some time, perhaps until it arrives
by mail, but the act has been declared
constitutional. The law in question
is a very strict prohibitory law. It
may be- put into ell'ect at any time by
proclamation but it is not probable
the Winnipeg papers say, that anything will bo done with it till the
provincial house meets. The effect of
the enforcement of the act would
work considerable i.nrdship on those
engaged in the liquor business, and
already there is talk of claims for
compensation on tlie part of those
who are to lie nfi'eeted.
When Hugh John Macdonald was
premier of Manitoba he told the
people thot while he was not a prohibitionist lie would, if ti.ey passed a
plebiscite in favor of prohibition,
bring down a bill favoring it. The
plebiscite was adopted Bud tlie Macdonald government adopted a stringent prohlbtion measure. An appeal
against tbe aot was taken to the Privy
council and it has been declared constitutional. The Macdonald government has since been succeeded by the
Roblin government upon Which devolves the duty of enfoicing the law.
It is said the members of Ihe Roblin
government are divided on tbe question of enforcing the law. It is therefore witbiu the ranee of possibilities
that the law may be abrogated by tbe
present government. The declaration
by the Privy council that the prohibitory law of Manitoba is constitutional
places Piemier Ross of Ontario in a
peculiar position. Be has declared to
the people of  Ontario that should the

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
cases.   It oures when all else fails.
The Rev. O. P. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111. .says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received iu good condition. I cannot
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. 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 acted like a
charm.    Send me a full size bottle.
Rev, Dr. Morris Wecusler,
Rabbi ot tha Cong. Bnni Israel,
New York, Jan, 3,1001
Dr. Taft Bros. Mbdicinb Co.,
Gentlemen : Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy for Asthma aud Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troubles which combine with Asthma,
Its success is astonishing and wonderful.
After having it carefully analyzed, we can state that Asthmalene contains
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.    Very truly yours,
Avon Springs, N. Y, Feb. 1, 1901.
Dhs. Taft Bros. Medicine Co.
Gentlemen I I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful elTect of your Asthninlene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been n111cled with s'pnsmodic asthma for the past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, t chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at, onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmaleno.
.My wife commenced faking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she ia entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that, I can consistently re
commend the medicine to all who are alllioted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHELPS, M. D.
Du. Taft Bnos, Meiwine Co, Feb. 5, 1001.
Gentlemen: I was troubled with Asthma for 22 years. I have tried numerous remedies, but, they have all failed. I ran across yonr advertisement and
stalled with a trial bottle, I found relief at ouee. I have since purchased your
full-sized bottle, and I am ever grateful. I have a family of four children, and
for six years wns unable to work. I am now in the best of health mid urn doing
business every day.   This testimony you cau make such use of as yon see Ut.

V Nelson  Daily Miner, Thursday November^, 1901
Some important Changes Made by the
Federation of Miners.
One  important item of buslnesB bathe   executive   of   the   Western
���'deration of Miners, which   has just
adjourned a session at Denver   was to
,1s. ihe constitution of that body.
Three  important  changes   from  the
.,���a���l Ihe old document are noted.
The first Is the organization of state
..derations oi miners, from the local
'.,.__ ,.f the federation The second,
_,, establishment of an insurance
' 1 for all members of the federn-
ti!ir third, relates to tbe ratification
J ih,. convention agreement for in-
terchatigcahle membership cords with
tl,o Western Lnboi union. The first
Wo nrrangroonts are considered one of
the most Important moves made in thc
Wilis of organized labor in tbe west
in a decade. This change and the in-
nuranco feature have not yet been ln-
eorporated into the constitution, but
lviH |lt, submitted to the union to be
.elated during the winter months.
Ne_t May each union is to send dele-
rates Instructed on those two propositions. The entire constitution Is to
1,,-volcd 011 by a referendum vote.
Aniens- the objects of the federation
set out are the followng: To prevent
,���i���ing companies hiring detectives
and an armed force to intimidate or
shout the men in time of strike; to
pio'iiote friendly relations between
mine owners and laborers; tho rrponl
of tlio conspiracy laws and the prevention of governmont by injunction.
Tlic constitution provides that 21)
miners at any one place may be sufficient to lorm a union. The representation in the convention will be one
delegate for every 100 members. It
is provided that if at any time over 50
por cent, of the entire membership
presents a petition on any subject this
petition shall bo regarded as an
"imperative mandate," on the officers
and exeentve board, and thc terms ot
tlio petition must be carried out.
Before a union can go on stike,
tlirce-fouths of the members must so
vole, and a bond must be filed with
the secretary of the federation before
aid can be received. The board must
also indorse a striko before it becomes
effective, and must approve all contracts made by unions or individual
Members with mine owners. Engi
neers and blacksmiths working in the
mines are to loin any local union of
that craft wherever they may be.
The initiative and rcicrendum shall
(,'Ovcrn nil matters of legislation and
all propositions must be submitted
to this kind of vote. If 10 per cent.
of tlie entire membership petitions
on any subject, a referendum vote
must he taken on that question.
The president and vice-president of
the Rossland Miners' union are drawing salaries of (8.50 per day and tne
secretary 8125 per month during the
stiike. The members of the union
while on strike draw $5 per week.

Matinee This Afternoon and   "Fogg's
Ferry" Tonight.
"A Romanco of Coon Hollow" was
produced at tbe Nelton ofora house by
tlie Fogg's Ferry oompany. The
scenery and accessories were elaborate
and appropriate and a spirited enaction was given to what proved to be
a sensational drama. Miss Iola Pomeroy in tlie character of (leorgie was
tlie life and soul of the play and is a
winsome, petite and handsome actress"
(it the same class as Lottie, Maggie
Mitchell and Kati6 Putnam. She gave
a vivacious and pleasing piece of
character acting and won her way
into tlie good will of thc audience.
Miss Cecil Jefferson was effective as
the revengeful mountain girl and gave
fresh emphasis to the aphorism that
"hades hntli no fury like a woman
scorned." The balance of the cast
was ncieptttble. Tbe singing and
dancing 0f the Carolina quartette
evoked loud applause.
A matinee will be given this afternoon, commencing at 2.45, when the
company will reproduce "Coon Hollow," The price of admission has
teen placed at 50 cents for adults and
25 cents for children.
In tlie evening tho  popular comedy
Pugg's Ferry" will be given. A
'ory handsome scenic presentation is
promised with the added features of
the quartette, a troupe of trained
plantation danccrB and Miss Iola
Pomeroy in the stellar role of Chick,
"his chaiaoter was made famous by
Mlnne Maddern,

every joint ached and every nerve wns
