Bulgaria Will Not Accept any
Responsibility for Miss
Stone.
Vienna, Oct. 18.���According to the
Pnlillsiihe Coircspondenz, M. Snratoff,
Bulgarian Minister of the lnteiior and
Interim-Minister of Foroign Affairs,
addressed a note to Mr. Dickenson, U.
S, Consul-General iu Constantinople,
a few days ago, iu whicli after complaining that the consul genoral had
exprvssod dissatisfaction with tie
umasiuos the Bulgarian government
had taken against tho kidnappers of
Miss Stone, ho strongly protested
Ognlnat his government being held
responsible for a crime committed on
Turkish tenitory and declared that in
order to guard itself against a senons
and unmerited acoasation the Bulgarian government has rosolveri,
should the ruhhoi band try to cress
the llulgarian frontier or succeed 'n
stealing into Ilnlgaria, to huve it
mercilessly pursued and annihilated
by llulgarian troops.
We will not enter into nny negotiation whatever for p-iying the rnr.r,om,
said M. Sainton', aa wc do not want
precedents established for tho many
robbers infesting Die neighborhood to
urn to Ilnlgaria when this seems to
thoir advantage. We ate firmly deter
mined to make an example which
will iiitoi robbers (rom repeating snch
speculations. It then will no longer
be possible to accuse Rnltjuria of
harboring secret committees whicli
organize bands for kidnapping
foreigners to Turkey and removing
them to Bulgaria there peacefully to
enjoy the ransom they extort.

London, Oct. lit.���An extraordinary
version cf the Stone abduction case
comes today trom Constantinople,says
a dispatch from Vienna to the Daily
Telegraph. It is declared in olllcinl
circles Hint Miss Stone sympathises
"lib the Macedonian committee and
herself agreed to the kidnapping so
that the lansotn would be paid to the
committee, Comment upon this story
is quite superfluous,
Commenting upon the stntemont ol
the Politiscbe Correspondenz, regarding tbo letter from M. Earatoff, the
Bulgarian minister, to Mr. Dickinson, the Vienna correspondent of the
Standard Bays; It may bo regarded
as convincing proof that Bulgaria is
Shielding the Maoeionian cominitleo
and that the Sofia correspondent of
the I'nlitslobo Correspondenz, and
other papers wero correct when declur*
ing that Macodoinnna disguised as
'l'nilis had kidnapped Miss Stone, and
��� hnl a regular game is being played
".V llulgarian troops on one side and
the Turkish troops on the other, of
the frontier,each side trying to smuggle pinoiiers over the bordet in cider
that the ransom paid by sentimental
Americans may be roenverod, as the
Bulgarians with from Turkey and as
the Turks wish, from Bulgaria, and
that some prisoners but for this farce
could hn produced at any moment.
The right course now is not to pay
iniisuin, but to hold Bulgaria respon-
sihle for every hair of Miss Stone's
head, Those who know the fncts see
no reason to anticipate any danger to
her life.
Pour thousand Bulgarian and Turkish troops nave boen occupied in the
effort to obtain Miss Stone's, release,
8Hys a despatch from Sofia to the
Morning Leader. It is boi Hived Here
thut her release would have been
effected but for Mr. Dickenson's re-
'"sal to offer her captors more than un
ordinary pour bolre, Mi. Diokenaou's
extraordinary action is regarded ns
suicidal. A large sum must be pnid
to the brigands as otherwise, Miss
Btuue's life will ho snorlflced. If
Mr, Dickinson desires vengeance on
the brigands the won-.cn must be ran-
soinoil first.
STATUS OF CANAL TREATY.
Washington, Oet. IS.���Lord Pauncefote will sail for the United States
October 80th, before the Hritish cabinet council has had an opportunity to
review the protocols which embody
the proposed new Hay-Pauiicefote
canal treaty. It is thought here, bow-
ovor, that that fact will uot delay
sonsibly the final negotiations which
will take place here between Secretary
Hay and Lord Pauncefote, for the now
treaty, like that which it will replace
on tho dookot of tho senate shall
finally bo drafted and signed in tho
City of Washington. It is Baid tnat
when the now documents arc framed
the 'fortifications" will have been
found to bnvo dropped ont, leaving
tho United Slates at liberty to lortify
tbo canal, hut it is distinctly stated
that it is not obligated to do so, and,
in fact, there Is no piesent intention
of eroding fortifications, which it is
stated would be much more expensivu
than a fleet of battleships and less
useful.
to strike on November 1st if their
request is not granted. The premier
says tbo government cannot pronounca
a decision on the eight-hour question
until tho parliamentaiy committee
has made its report, while, respecting pensions, lie recalls the fact tbat
the chamber of deputies will discuss,
dumg the coming session, a general
bill providing for workmen's pensions. As to tbe minimum wage, tbo
premier says this waH a matter which
bail been freely argued between the
workmen and the employers. The
-,'eply cannot be considered very satisfactory to the men, whoso federation
committee will meet Sunday and resolve whether to strike or not. The
surreptitious distiibution of arms
among the miners of Montceau Les
Mines has assumed a graver aspect
lately Abput 10,000 rifles,from which
the rilling has beeu removed in crder
to avoid their seizure as military
weaponp, are now iu the hands of the
mine's. The government has realized
the Boriitusnrsa of the situation and
announces on the declaration of a
strike all these rilles will be immediately seized under the law authorizing such a step in case of urgency.

A LAKE STEAMER LOST.
Mich,     Oct.    18. -The
State   of   Michi-
Wuskegon,
without loss.
At the supreme court yesterday
before Mr. .Instice Irving thc case of
Carmichael & Burns vs. Mrs. Egan
and Stubbs came up for trial. Carmicbael and Burns rented the Palace
saloon premises io Sandon from Mrs.
Egan some time ago and on the 37th
of April last were in arrears to her for
.05 rent. She placed S. Stubbs id
possession of the place as bailiff to
distrain the goods and chattels of the
firm, but finding that under the Distress Act it was necessary for "the
sheriff to appraise the good*) she
deoided that the goods were not worth
the cost of such action and so abandoned the distress. Cannichael and
Burns brought suit asking fcr $1,000
damsgos for the breaking np of thoir
business, and also for the goods they
had left ou the premises. Judgment
without costs, for 805 was given in
their I'tjvor, Mrs. Eg��u bad a counter
claim for the ,95 of rent in airears,
which counter claim, without costs,
was also granted. F, L. Christie noted
for lhe plaintiffs and S. S. Taylor for
Mrs. Egan and M. Ii, Grimmett for
Mr. Stubbs.
In the caso of McMillan vs. Sandi-
lnnds, Crawford and John W. Peok
Sc Co., judgment was also given yes-
terdny. Tbis case arose out of the
wjntUnJM oo of the estate of Crawford
.1 McMillan of Sandon, who assigned
for the bcoeflt of their creditors on
February 4th, 1808. The first assignee
was E. M. Sandilands, wbo managed
the property for a short time and then
inriiiid il over to the creditors lepre-
hented by .1. W. Peck Sc Co. The business was cained on by the creditors
and fresh goods purchased for the
stock, assessment work performed on
certain claims and tbe estate treated
as a going affair, and as Peok & Co.
contended, with McMillan's acquies-
euce. McMillan in the suit claimed
that they had wasted a surplus in the
estate to the amount of 80,000 unnecessarily, and so managed the estate
that it could not pay even tho liabilities to tho creditors. The action has
come up for hearing four or five times
and had beeujdisniisfled as far as McMillan was concerned on throe occasions with coats against him, and
with leave tc change and amend bis
pleading so as to bring a proper issue
before the court. On Ibis occasion at
the conclusion of the plaintiff's cross
examination the plaintiff's counsel
consented to the dismissal of tbe ease
without costs to any party. W. A.
Majdouald, K. ('., and A. M. Johnson acted for tho plaintiff; S. S. Taylor, K. C, and R. W. Hannington
for John W. Peck Sc Co., dtfondants;
P. L. Christie for E. M. Sandilands,
defendant; nnd W. A. (Jallihcr for T.
L Peele, an added defendant.
The famous ease of W. F. McNaught
vs. Van Norman, Harvey company and
Balfour & Co., ot al., was decided
yesterday. This Is the much spoken
of Interpleader aotion. The plaintiff,
W. F, MoNnught, is the owner of the
thi'im quarter interest in the Hampton
group near Slocan City.
On the 31st of May last the sheriff
seized the quarter Interest, in lhe
Hampton Rioup belonging to hi
partner McKinnon on the suit of the
abovo named defundints. McKinnon
on tbo same day allowed his free
miner's license to expire, which date
wus after seizure bnt boforo the
sheriff hnd sold. McNangkt therefore
claimed that under soetlin I) of the
Ml.inral Act that the the lapsing of
thu certificate gave to bim the undivided one-qnartcr interest heretofore
belonging to McKinnon in thn Hampton group, thou under seizure. Tho
defendants, who wero the creditors of
McKinnon,elainied thnt thc seizure of
tho sheriff carried the claim over the
:tlst of May, and that as the execcu-
tlon creditors on tho 7th of June took
out in McKinnon'h naroo a special
free miner's license, under seotion 4
of the Mineral Act of Isiiu. tbat by
such special license tbey secured the

ther contended that the creditors   bo-1
ing   strangers,   notwithstanding   thei
execution, could not takeout a special
free minor's liconso   without   MeKinnon's request.      In   connection   with
these points it was argued   by counsel
lor McNaught that a sheriff's  seizure
gives  no   title   to     cither   execution
creditors   or   the   sheriff,    but simply
gives the power to sell.
His Lordship, without expressing
any definite opinion was inclined to
believe that if the spcc'al free miner's
IIeens9 had been taken out by Mo-
Kinnon under section 4 of the statute
of 1809, it might have levived his
title, but as the certificate was taken
out by the creditors, who under the
authority cited were absolute strangers to McKinnon, and who had no
title by reason of seizure, thnt thoro-
fcre tho special free miners' license
taker out by them could be of no
value. Ilis Lordship therefore gave
judgment for McNaught. annulling
the seizure of the defendants and
putting the sheriff out of possession
w'tii costs. The case was on an absolutely new point of luw. S. S. Taylor
acted for plaintiff, McNaught, and!
John Elliott, B S. Lennie und E. C.
Wragge, for the defendants.
THE BEAMISH CASE,
Interesting Lognl Point Raised.  Argument on Wednesday Next.
The celebrated Beamish oato was
once more brought before the courts
yesterday.
It came before Mr. Justice Irving in
tbe shape of a motion for a rule Nisi
in Habeas Corpus proceedings. Tbe
matter bad beon before Mr. Justice
Walkem at Rossland in the same way
aod he bad held that be had no jurisdiction to entertain the application on
account of one of tbe sections of the
criminal code. Tho question as to
the jurisdiction of a judge of the
Supremo court to e.'tertain an application in this way was veiy fully
gono into by Mr. C. E. CliUan, who
appeared on behalf of Beamish, and
the case of Regina vs. Arscot, 9 O. R.
541, a decision of the lute Mr. Justice
Bone, was particularly relied on, us
covering the ground of the jurisdiction for one of tbe judges of the
Supremo court of the province to en-
teitain an application of this   nature.
His Loidship on hearing tbe argument of counsel for the prisoner,
granted a Bule Nisi iu the matter returnable at (ireenwood before himself
on Weonesday next.
The chief contention, apart from
technical (.-rounds in this case, was
that no offense had been charged
against the prisoner within the meaning of section r,23 of the criminal code
under whioh the information had been j
laid. The uffence oharged was In
substance that the prisoner had persistently followed and with other persons in a disordoily manner followed
the complainant Joseph Horn about
tho streets of Bossland with a view
"to compel the said JosepU Horn to
abstain from proceeding peacefully
through thc stroets of Bossland."
This it wns contended by oounsel for
the prisoner, was nol an offenso within the spirit and contemplation of the
act, which is adoptod from tbe
English criminal laws framed and
known as ''The Conspiracy nnd Protection of Property Act'' passed in
1878, This net oonld only applv
where intei ferenco had been made
with a man in proceeding to or from
his work as in the casu of Horn he
was simply poising through tho city.
The argument was an nblu aud interesting ooo. The matter will bo
argued in all of its phases on Wcdnei-
day next ut the sitting of the coutt to
bo held at Oreer.wood.
Willemstadt, Island of Cuvacoa,Oot.
IS. ��� A fishing schooner whicli arrived
hero today from Aruba island, northwest of Curacou, brings a story that
the A rendu, a Venezuelan schooner,
hound from Laguayra for Miiraeaibco,
bringing a sum of money from the
government destined to puy the'troops
on the frontier,the amount being variously estimated from (38,000 to $1110,-
000, was lost. She encountered heavy
weather last Sunday night when off
Aruha island, and foundered in deep
water, tbe entire sum being lost.
The crew reached tho island in a boat.
Thc money is supposed to have been
:part of some raised in Caracas n
fortnight ago from the Bank of Venezuela by President Castro. If it is
totally lost- the government has s".s*
tnined a very serious loss. The sinking of lhe steamer was attended with
certain suspioious oircuinstnnces.
The weather Sunday night was calm
and the captain of Arenda resides on
Aruha island. 'There are ether minor
details pointing ti the possibility of
collusion with ouulders to seen re
possession of the money.

THK LIGHT yfJESTION.
The question of procuring a suppy
of electrl, al powei for tbe city con
ti nuea an absorbing topic. There Is
a wide difference of opinion as to the
matter and several solutions have
been suggested. The business element
favors tbe purchasing whatever addi
tional power may be needed from the
Weat Kootenay Power and Light Company for a period which will not
exceed a year, out they are unanimously opposed to tbat which would
savor of a partnership arrangement or
in the nature of anything that would
toud to Borieuder the city's right to
furnish electrio lights. The Iiabor
element is opposed to entering any
airangemcnt other than to supplement tbe present plant of the city till
lt is of a sufficient capacity to meet
ourrent requirements. Others say
that the city should get along without
the assistance of the West Kootenay
Light & Power company. Those who
cannot prooure electric light service
from the oity can seuure gas from the
Nulson lias Sc Coke oompany which is
a local corporation engaged in the
business of furnishing lights to customers and whose plant is looated
within the corporate limits and
which gives employment to residents
tt tho oity.
I'lio determination of the oitizens
that no right wbich belongs to the

Uic lights to its residents shall be
. given up is a wise one. They reoog-
XA-tJti in it a valuable asset and one
whioh will be the source of no in*
aonaiderable revenue when the city
haa a larger plant.
The city of Rossland should serve as
a good object lesson for Nelson. A
(aw years ago the oity council of
i Bstmlond began negotiations for the
purchase of the light and water plant
ot the Rossland Light & Water com*
pany. After a period the water
plant waa purchased, but the council
clumsily and foolishly allowed the
eVeotrie light plant to slip through
Its    Sogers.     A    good    profit    has
on realized from the -nator plant
at II is claimed that the returns for
furnishing lights are greater. The
West Kootenay I'ower & Light company has a virtual monopoly of tbe
furnishing of electrio lights to the
eity and makes a large profit from it,
The city government and the citizens
generally very much regret that tho
municipality did not scour.' tho electrio light plant when it puiehased tiie
water plant, as in that event it would
have two sources of profitable revenue
instead of one.
Tbe best policy for Nelson to pursue
is to rely as much as possible on itself
in the light matter, but if it is com*
polled to purchase power let it be for
tho shortest possible time. The preliminary steps should be at once taken
tor the installation of a plant of a
^ient capacity for preHent, and for
Ure requirements for at least   three
three years.

TUB WRIGHT INTERESTS.
Advices from London state that tbe
shareholders in the Bossland-tiroat
Western and Kootenay Mining companies recently reoeived circulars asking them to subscribe money for the
purpose of makiog an attempt to set
aside the contract for tbe sale of the
proporty to each oompany, to make
the vendors and promoters refund
moneys paid for them, and to remove
the present board of direotors. Tbis
Is probably a move by those opposed
to Whitaker Wright and his friends
tu get tbem out of the management of
those oompanies, in much tbe same
manner as the Wright directorate was
compelled to vacate their places in
the Le Roi board. It is obvious
tbat the parties who have met and
defeated Wright aud bis friends lately
at eveiy torn do not intend to stop
until they are in control in all the
companies in which Wright was and
is interested in the Rossland camp.
From certain information which has
leaked out it is certain that they desire the Le Roi No. 2, and from thc
latest move made by tbem in London
it would seem that they also wish to
control the Rossland-flreat Western
and the Kootenay mines. With these
four mines under their domination lt
would mean a complete elimination of
lhe Whitakei Wright interest in the'
Rossland camp. From tho reckless
manner ln whioh tbe shares have
boen manipulated, to the great loss of
many investors, it is palpable that a
change which would result in the
four companies being handled in a
more conservative and businesslike
maimer would be of benefit to the
Rossland camp and to liritisli Oolum
bia mining interests.

If only a few more English directors
would follow Mr Wethered's example,
and pay a visit to the mines wbich
tbey administer, it would be greatly
to the advantage uf the shareholders."

All Farm Produce to  Grand Forks  to
Get a Reduction.
In tbe arranging of tbe tralff of
freight charges of the Boundary
country tbe C. P. R. ran one of tbeir
lines of division between Columbis
and Iraad Forks, so tbat tbe rate*
to Grand Forks were consldmoly
higher than taose to Cascsde City.
Tbe Board of Trade of the former
place (HXik the matter up and H. E.
Mscdonnell. general freight ageu' for
the C. P. R . took a tiip over a few
weeks ago and after talking the matter over with the merchants and business men promised to do sil he could
to rectify tbe discrimination.
Laat week the Board of Tiade of
Grand Forks received s letter from
bim in which he stated that the rates
on produce would be changed on
November l'tb. including Grand
Forks in the right division snd placing the dividing line west of that
town Tbe Grand Forks News in
speaking of   tbe matter said:
"No r"ou'Dt -.he people of this city
will feel kindly toward ihe C. P. R.
for their action in thi* matter, but
Tbe New* would like to know the
meaning of the word -produce.' Doe*
it mean potatoes, cabbage, fruit and
cereals? Or does it mean butter, eggs
and cheese? Or does it include all
these.
"The word 'produce' is generally
construed as meaning agricultural
products of all kinds. If tbis mean
ing is given it, this action of the C.
P. R. mesns a good deal to onr mei-
chants; if not, it means very little.
This matter should be given the immediate attention of the board of
trade, and a true definition of the
word, aa ronBiroed by the C. P. B.,
be ascertained."
When shown tbe paragrah in the
Newa by a Miner reporter, Mr. Macdonnell said that tbe tariff will include net only all tbe articles men
tioned In tbe Item quoted but also
flour, oatmeal, and bay. The new
division occurs to th* westward of
Grand Forks in accordance with tbe
topographical lay of the country.

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly increnses the heating capacity of tho stove, and in connection with the deflector^.ring forces the
heat to the floor. The base is hot, the floor being warmer than w;lh 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 ppt, 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 complete
control of tho stove with nearly perfect combustion.
Tha large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the back takes the cold air from
the floor and ejects it. .ntensely heated, through the top jadr'ing greatly
to the heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according to directions"we guarantee it lo
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 stova will hold fire from
J4 to ^8 hours without attention.
