Eleventh  Year

Only Half the Course Sailed
Over When Race Was
Galled Off.
Shamrock About Half a Mile
Ahead.���Big   Crowds
New York, Oct. 1.���Today's attempt
to race the seoond of the present series
of international yacht races for the
blue ribbon of tbe sea proved a dismal failure. Between 35,000 and
110,000 people who crowded the pleasure fleet oft* Sandy Hook lightship in
the hope of seeing a repetition of tlie
thrilling sport of last Saturday, witnessed instead more of a drifting
match than a race.
The wind was exceedingly light and
varying, falling so low tbat the wind
pennants which are as light as thistle
down, bung limp against tiie masts of
the big single stickers. The wind,
with crows lined up on the Ieo rails,
was not sufficient at any time to make
a racing machine bed to its lines.
At the end of four and a half hours
the two yachts had covered less than
one half of tbo prescribed course, of
30 miles and as there was no possible
chance ot their finishing within '.he
time limit the regatta coinr.ittee declared the raco off. When the gun
was lircd announcing; this decision,
the challenger was about half a mile
ahead of the defender and to that extent today's ti inl was a victory foi
Shamrock II. but the iluke today
demonstrated liulqas to tho queBtion
of supremeoy between tiie two boats
except, perhaps, that Sir Thomas'
new challenger is moie dangerous in
light airs, than was supposed after
her two former meetings with thc
whim flyer, to which the patriots aro
pinning their faith. In llu'uey winds
oft shifting, na thoy did today,
through six points of the compass
luck cuts almost as much figure as
model and seamanship and today fortune was unuiistakeably with the
The course was an equilateral triangle, ten miles to the leg. The first
leg being a beat due east into the
wind. The Yankee skipper at the
start out general led his adversary in
a splendid piece of jockeying, crossing tbo line in tlio windward berth 12
seconds ahead of Iho Englishman,
Xis advantage the Columbia held for
two hours while both yachts steered
far off their course to the southward
looking for a stiuak of wind that
wouhl profit tbem. Finally Iiarr declined longer to continue tho vain
race. Ilo put tbe helm down and
beaded iu shore on the starboard tack.
The Shamrock at this time alter botli
bad been sailing in the same airs
was a beaten boat ami her superior
could afford to take a gambler's
chance with fortune. He held doggedly on and foitune smiled on him.
With in five minutes be got a breeze
cut of the southwest whioh milled the
ciestlcss seas and waftod him like a
ghost through, tho air. But this was
not bis best piece of good fortune.
After this reverse, the Columbia
slipping through the seas at an astonishing pace, considering the lightness
of tbe breeze had woikcd out ahead of
the ShamiOok, but to leeward. Whon
the two yachts wero in tbis position,
about two milos from the first turn,be
wind threatened to blanket the Columbia and to avoid such a possibility
Barr went under the Shamrock's
Btcrn. Just as he did so, the wind
hauled round to tbe south knocking
the Columbia's head off until the
astonished spectatois saw she waB
headed almost back for the lightship
at the starting line. The golden boat,
favored by tho same breeze was
headed in exactly the opposite direction. When the wind backed up
again and Barr got tlie Columbia
straightened out he was a third of
a mile astern. In this position the
two boats rounded the first mark, the
Shamrock threo minutes and eight
seconds before the Columbia, or a gain
in tbe boat ot windward adding the
12 seconds which Columbia beat ber
for tbe line, of 8 minutes and t0

and as only 50 minutes then remained
before tho expiration of the time
limit, the race was declared off.
After turning tbe mark the experts
thought the Shamrock increased her
lead slightly. This gain may, however, be accounted for by the fact
that she carried a largo reaching jib
topsail while Columbia was working
close to the wind with a small baby
topsail, a mere handkerobif, compared
to Shamrocks larger sail. When tne
excursion fleet headed back homo the
only real raoe of the day occurred. It
was the race for Now York. Tonight
both the Yankees and the foreigners
are praying for a good stiff wind on
Thursday whon the day's raco will bo
Almost optimistic Sir Thomas Lipton, after the race today, was in the
best of spirits. "I really don't see
anything yet on which to base a definite opinion regarding the two boats,
whilo Shamrock was leading when
the race was called off there's nothing
lo brag about. Today whilo the
winds wero very light there was
little finking, therein differing from
last Thursday's breezes which in
spots failed utterly, cacli boat in turn
striking dead calm. After tbe show
iug made thus far by both boats, 1
should not hesitate if I wore a betting
man to lay oven money on Shamrock. Both boats wore handled today
to the best ability of tlie boBt men
each country could produce."
Sir Thomas expressed himself as
personally in favor of racing every
day providing any suggestion looking
to that end should be made.
W.hen tho string of signals was
hoisted on tho committee boat indicating the course the rival racers were
coming about thc lightship. The
preparatory gnu was flred at 10.45.
\t that tune both yachts were on the
port standing to the southward with
the Shamrock in the lead and the
Columbia following in her wake.
Ten minutes later came tlie bing of a
warning gun and the Columbia veering sharply rouud trimmed tier sails

with tho American boat at first for a
fortunate catspaw struck her and
enabled hor to head up a couple of
points higher than her opponent
This gave her a commanding lend,
the Shamrock meanwhile scarcely
moving through the water and appearing to be null and loggy.
The Shamrock wont on the port
tack 15 minutes after tbo start, the
Columbia following immediately,
Once again the American boat showed
her superiority in slays coining about
much quicker than her rival and
gathering way as soon as her head
sheets wero trimmed down. At 11.30
both yachts we.-o pretty nearly becalmed throughout saving a load of
about a quarter of a mile. At 11,85
tlie Shamrock went on thc starboard
tack, the Columbia following and
then a lucky streak filled the Shamrock's, sails and gave her an appreciable lift. At noon both jcehfs were
on the.port tack almutt becalmed,
t'hen the unexpected happened.
Wafted along at a Hoo clip by a stray
puff, Ilia Shamrock overhauled tho
Columbia und at 12.15 sho was so
close that Captain Han* bore down on
her in order to kill ber wind as he
had so often killed the wind of the
Constitution. The .Shamrock went on
tne port tack immediately followed by
thu Columbia and in another minute
the Britisher was ahead and to wind*
The wind now became more southerly. Both yachts set reaching jib
topsails and cased off sheets steering
a direct course for the mark. Then
the Shamrock forged ahead and got
into the doldruin while tbe Columbia
got slant cf wind and at 1.55 p. m.
passed the Shamrock Then it came
Shamrock's turn to got tho benefit of
a breeze and she caino along and

this blanket, Captain Ban* sent the
Columbia oil the port tack at 2.12 but
luck was against her and she lost
every breath of wind as well as steerage way and it was fully two minutes
befote she got away on tho starboard
tack again and by that time the
Shamrock was too far ahead to be

Victoria, Oct. 1.���Victoria, as befitted the capital of the western pmi-
inco, accorded a most hearty welcome

cheering crowds. At tbe buildings
an immense crowd had assembled.
Here tho civic addresses and addresses
from the Presbytery of Victoiia and
American-British citizens of the State

Victoiia, the residents of Seattle and
other parts of tbo State of Washington
and of tlie British Columbia synod of
the Presbyterian church of Canada.
''The tender allusion, in tbo last
address, to our common home loss in
the death of the late boloved Queen
and to tbe noblo example of ber life
have deeply touched mo. Ky the devotion to duty, her love und sympathy
with her fellow crcaturos, she has
earned the undying gratitude ana
admiration of tbo whole empire.
''I shall have much pleasure in informing my dear father, the King, of
what especial satisfaction I have
noticed your strong declaration of
loyalty to tho constitution and pride
in the heritage of Hritish citizenship,
and your unfaltering resolution to
share in responsibilities of upholding
the glory and intogiity of that
"1 know what proof of this you
have already given iu tlie blood of
your sons which has been shed on the
South African veldt. 1 am confident
that the sacrifices you have made will
not be in vain. They have forged
another link in tho golden chain
whioh bind together the biothcrhood
ot the empire.
'It gives ns tlio utmost pleasure in
visiting this, the capital of your great
province. Our only regret in that
time does Dot permit us to see more of
its wonderful natural resources, it*
picturesque scenery, and to h��ve further experience of its beautiful climate. Our earnest wish is that under

Columbia may continue to advance In
prosperity and in all that tends to

At yesterday's sessions of the
County court tho wholo timo wus occupied by the case of Hall vs. LaBau,
which to all appearances is far from
finished having been adjourned until
today. S. S. Taylor and lt. W. Hnn-
ingtnn appeared for the plaintiff,
while VV. A. Macdonald and P. E.
Wilson acted for tho defendant. The
court room was well-til led by a number of interested spectators, among
whom were some ladies. The following jury were drawn for tbo case: D.
A. MacFarland, foreman; 'P. M.
Chadbourn, Johu Blaney, G. VV.
I In le, and II. II. Avery.
S. S. Taylor iu opening the ouse
statod that Dr. LaBau, as medical
Health ollioor, had entered tho ollices
of tlie plaintiffs, which had been
newly furnished, and proceeded, contrary to their desires to place a man
named MacLeod on the premises with
instructions to fumigate the rooms
with sulphur. This was done and
not only ruined the carpets and other
furnishings of tbe utliccs but seriously
damages a largo number ol instru-
inens which had been lying open in
one ol tbe rooms. His clients
claimed that some other disinfectant
should have been used or. if sulphur,
it should have been handled differently. As by law it was impossible
for tbem to proceed against thc city 111
such a case the action was therefore
brought against Dr. Lallan. The reason for this disinfecting was that a
man supposed to Iiave been suffering
from smallpox bad called 011 Drs.
Hull and Rose, and on tbeir notifying
the health officer the disinfeeilng process had boen ordered by the said
healtb otlicer.
Dr    Hall  on   being   called   to   the
witness box related bow the  smallpox
patient   had come up to the ollice and
had been examined by tbem.    He had
noliiied   Dr.    LaBau by telephone  on
which the health   officer  said that he
would send over Macleod to convey the
patient to thc isolation hospital.    Dr.
Hall answered that tho pest house not
having been in use for some tunc was
not in a condition for tiie  man to   bu
taken to as he was quite ill.    Dr.  LaBau said lie won hi come   over, and in
tho course of two hours ariived,   having been   detained   at   the   hospital.
Afier examining the patient,    Dr. Lallan said that lhe plaoe would have to
be disinsfected with   Buiphnr,   whicli
was   objected   to   by iho witness who
said   that,   it   would   cause   damage.
Dr. LaBau replied thut  ho knew Hali
was iu favor of formalin but   he himself  did   not   consider   it    effective.
Later on in the   afternoon,   after   the
patient bad   been   removed,   Macleod
arrived with the   disinfecting   apparatus,    and wa�� told by Dr. Hall   that
be would be bold responsible   for   any
damage done.   Macleod took down the
clock and   took   it outside.    Dr. Hall
then    left,    Dr.   Rose having done   so
before,      Next   morn iug,    when    Dr.
Rose and himself   arrived a', tlie ollice
tbey    found    it   locked   and   the   key
gone,    but   through   the   glass   doors
tbey could see the   damage   that   bad
been dune  and   the   stale   thu   room:*
were in.      lie called up Dl. LaBau by
telephone to   know   when   the   place
wuuld bo cleaned up.    LaBau asked If
tlio smoke bad cleared away   and said
if so that Dr.   Hall had   better set   to
work to clean the place up.    Dr. Hall
tnen called In Drs.   Arthur   and   Mc-
Lellaii tu appraise ths contents.
The curtains were spoiled completely and everything in the rooms
was damaged. Thc ollices wore new
and bad just been furnished at a cost
of approximately $5(10. Besides this
there had heen a largo number of instruments which had been badly
tarnished, winch in bis opinion
greatly interfered with their useful*
nosa. (Tiie curtains and some of the
instruments wero thon produced and

degree of friendship existed as is generally the case with two men between
whom there is keen professional competition, as between two lawyers for
In answer to another question Dr.
Hall said that he had taken his solicitor's advice as to not cleaning up tlie
offices, until after he hud notified both
the city nnd Dr. LaBau of the state iu
which thoy had been left, and had the
damage appraised.
Mr. Macdonald���''Do you not think
that the application of a little ammonia or other agent would have removed tho effects of the   sulphur from
the Instruments?"
Dr. Hall���"No, the damage had
already beeu done, and tbeir further
staying in that condition was im-
Dr. Rose was then oalled to the witness stand, his evidence being piacti-
eally tlie same as Dr. Ball's. After
this the court adjourned till tlie
At the afternoon session the cross-
amination of Dr. Rose was continued.
He stated that he bad no objection to
the otlices being oisinfocted had it
been done without damugo to the instruments. Ho knew that sulphur was
going to be used.
Witness said that at tbe hospital be
bad used black bichloride of mercury.
If he were going to disinfect a room
he would wipe down tne walls witli
bichloride of mercury and use the
sulphur before they were dry that the
sulphur might act properly. He did
uot tliinic sulphur fumigation was
effective anyway. If the walls were
moist that moisture would form sufficient sulpurous gas for the disinfection
hut he did not think that sufficient
moisture could be got from any other
Mr. Macdonald asked Dr, Rose, if,
'ince he thought the disinfection was
not sufficient, he disinfected tho rooms
afterwaids for his own and the public
To th's Dr. Rose replied that he did
not think there was any very grave
necessity for it at any timo.
After the disinfection he had started
to clean thu instruments but the result was not satisfactory and on the
advice uf a solicitor he had desisted
and loft them as they weio. He
thought bu bud nut used the instrument in question since. Another instrument rofcrred to he has not used
since, some he had. He aud Dr. Hall
had bought some instruments sinco to
replace those damaged, particularly
the cutting instruments of which he
named 38 in all.
Going into particulars of the damage to the obstetric forceps the nickel
plating was partially destroyed, the
sulphur forming a sulphide of nickel.
This made the sterilization of the instrument moie difficult nnd at no time
absolutely certain. He considered
the appiaisemout of the damage fair.
Some of the articles and furniture
had been used since, but their appearance was   injured.
On re-examination by Mr. Taylor,
Dr, Roso pnin ted uut that tbe corrosion was less on tbe underside ol
(be instrument than on the tup. For
this reason lie did uot think the disinfection by sulphur was effective.
Dr. Arthur was the next witness.
lie had made the appiaisemcnt of the
damage dune in the olliee of the
plaintiffs on- tbe day following the
fumigation. He and Dr. Hall had
gone through the instruments and by
1: un paring their present condition
with the prioes they remembered or
found in the list arrived at an estimate of tho damage! as to thu carpet,
the bright color was faded. Where
any object had rested on the carpet
the original color remained so that
when the place of the furniture was
changed it looked like a samllpox
patient. Ho considered it a total loss.
He then described the othfr damage
to the furniture. If he wero buying

Mr. ii I". H. Miner, president of tlie
Granby ''o . in a recent interview, admitted that tlie cost of smelting in the
plant of the company at Grand Forks
bad been ieduced to $1.90 per ton anil
that within six mouths even this
would be lowered 25 per cent. It was
the aim, Mr. Miner said, tu treat tbe
Phoonix ores as cheap, if not cheaper,
than similar work could be done in
any existing smelter. One dollar and
ninety cents per ton for smelting certainly seems a very low pi ice lor the
operation. Take 25 por oent off this
and it cuts down the cost to $1.55 per
ton. This would certainly be below
the cost of smelting anywhere on this
continent. The Granby company at
its smelter has ideal conditions for
reducing ore at tho very lowest
figure. Tho oie, as a prominent
motalliurgical chemist once said melts
as easily as butter in a furnace.
"If,'' he said. "I eat Oowu in my
laboratory and tried my utmost to
mix a combination of ganguo and
metals that would flux under the least
amount of heat, or flux more readily,

that would do this better than tlie
ores of tlie Phoenix camp, and as for
that, the orus from the Mother I.ode

Besides this thu machinery of the
Orauhy smelter Is operated by water
power and this aids in cheapening the
running expenses. Tben, too, the
smelter was constructed with the idea
of handling the ore jnst as little hy
band us possible and numerous labor
saving devices have boen put In and
as a consequence the cost ot smelting
the ore has beon reduced to $1.00 per
ton, and a reduction of 25 per cent, on
this is contemplated.
It would be impossible to reduce thc
cost of smelting the ores of the Rossland camp to this point, because it is
necessary to rtiast them, an expensive
process, which roi'Biros considerable
huudliug.and to use fluxes, which also
adds considerably to tiie cost, but yet
it is claimed that at Trail and at
Northport, even under these adverse
conditions the cost of smelting is
not ove" $1 or J1.50 per ton more than

JCr, W, V. Williams, the superintendent fji the mines of tho Granby

In Michigan the oie is iu tbe gangue

There arc still some people who
think the war in South Africa might
bave been avoided, says the Mail and
Empire. An American mining engineer who has just related his experience of six years in South Africa, M.
It. M. Catlin, of Iloston, is not one of
them, probably because he knuv.s the
situation better than other critics.
Mr. Catlin says he has many friends
among the Iloers, and he sinoeiely
deploies the war, But he adds: "It
had to come; it had to be fought out
some time. Tbe lbitisb would not
give up Cape Colony, and tho Hocus
wanted to be supreme in Soutli
Africa." This is precisely the situation as we understand it in Canada,
and it makes it imperative that the
outcome of the present war should be
decisive and final. It is satisfying to
note tbat an independent critic such
as Mr. Catlin freel ' declares thai the
Dutch of the Transvaal will be better
off under British rule than under the
old regime. And so will everybody
else there.
E. J. Freohevillc the London mining engineer and member of tbe new
board of directors of the I.eKoi Mining
oompany, has refused to accede to the
demands of the Miners' union at Rossland and in a series ot numbered
paiagraphs gives his reasons for the
position be has assumed. He offers
the same wages that were paid before
lite beginning of the strike on July
12th. The question now is whether
or not the union will accept the terms
offered. There was a hope, before Mr.
FrecheviUe made public his determination, that by mutual concessions the
strike might be brought to an end.
The question now is what effect Mr.
I'recheville's uncompromising attitude
will have on the union and the natural inference is tbat it will probably
result in a continuance of the strug
gle, which will doubtlei*s be long
drawn out. It is regrettable that the
trouble could not have boen settled
and that it is destined to still exist to
the detriment of the business and
other interests of the mining   section.

had conducted fumigation bnt in
eM'i'.v ^afie had rcnoved instruments.
He had in ecnit a garment which had
bi'ou fumigated twice, if not three
times. Thi' fumigation had practically not affected the color or textura.
Other articles had been in the room
when that one was fumigated and hi*
had noticed no difference in them,
lie had fumigated in the same way
except that In* kept tho sulphur away
from the water. lie thought fumigation lij sulphur was efficient. Where
moisture is allowed to escape fabrics
aro affected hy buing bleached, sometimes rotted. With moisture a sulphide would bo formed on the coating
of an instrument and they would have
to be roplntod to be as good as ever.
As soon as the rooms weio opened up
the corrosion would ccaso.
On cross examination Dr. Arthur
. said that ho would disinfect by the
production of sulphur dioxide not
sulphurous acid vapor. This was
pioduoed by sulphur meeting with
the oxygon of the air. If a room were
Smeared wUli moisture when tlie sulphur was burned i*. would produce a
smearing of sulphurous acid. To do
so would produce efficacious disinfect
tion but it would do dumago. To
Mr. Taylor Dr. Arthur said tbat judg-
��� ing fiom the conditions ho found in
tho office the next day wator must
have been used to produco   the results
' he saw, except to tho instruments
which would have beon damaged any
Dr. Koinhard was then called. He
had learned his profession in Germany
and Switzerland, and iu Now York
and Chicago. IL bad had considerable
experience with disinfection in hospitals. As to disinfection by sulphur
he had always been Instructed to nse
it as a   vapor, in this   differing   from
I Dr. Aithur. This would have a damaging effect on fabrics but would be
effective. Previous to this case coming up he had preferred formalin but
since   studying   the   question he had
��� come to tho conclusion that sulphur
was Iho best.  Had ho boon conducting
[ a disinfection like the one in question he would have removed the fabrics out of the room. The formalin
is not so penetrating as sulphur. In
using formalin, to get thorough work
the articles should he removed and an
apparatus used to make it penetrating. 11 lie were disinfecting a jewelry
store he would use only formalin so
that the destruction by sulphur would
not follow. As to the dicolorntion on
tho forOeps the public did not like to
see it but for actual uso they wore
none Ihe worse.
In cross examiration by Mr. Macdonald Dr, Beinhard suid bo had read
of the health olllcer of New York having produced four cases in which disease germs were not destroyed by formalin.    He was surprised to read it.
This   niosed the plaintiff's case and
the defence was   called.      Dr.   LaBau
related receiving   information   of the
case of smallpox us city health officer.
He   had     arranged    for   the   patient
being   sent   to   the isolation hospital
and told Dr. Hall that the office would
have lo be  disinfected.     He had convention with   Dr. Hall when bo told
hiin   he   proposed   using   sulphur and
Dr. Hall had   no   objection,      Subsequently Mr.   McLeod   had been put in
charge of Or. Hall's   oflice and he did
the disinfecting in tlio rooms. Twenty
pounds of sulphur was used.  The rule
was three pounds of  sulphur   to 1,000
cubic feet of spade.     ln the  morning
the   windows   were   opened   that Dr.
Hall and Rose might cleau   out  their
otlices.   As to the proper mode he considered it was hnrning   sulphur.     He
would close up the room and burn thc
sulphur in the presence of water.    Ut
used a tub for thc   water,    Mr.   Mac-
donald's  questions lead to r reference
to thc inlos of the provincial board ol
healtb, and to bring  out the fact that
Dr.    I.allau   was   acting   under them
and was doing what he had authority
to do.    Mr. Taylor pointed out tbat it
was not sn contended in thc pleadings
and   Mr. Macdonald   would   have  to
keep to them.
Mr. Macdonald quoted tho Public
Health act of 1800 and the regulations
set forth there and pleaded the admis*
sion by the plaintiffs in their pleadings
that ho held that office. Dis honor
ruled against Mr. Macdonald but
allowed him to amend the pleadings
which he did by inserting a clause
pleading justification under the
health regulation.
Mr. Taylor held that this puf an
entirely new face un the case; he had
not studied the regulations sufficiently
to properly protect the interests of his
clients and asked an adjournment of
the case with coats against the defendant.
His honor decided that the case
should go on, the verdict of the jury
to be subjeot to decision on the point
of law. Mr. Taylor objected to this
and a compromise was made by ad
jouning the case until today.

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly incrense.** the heating1 capacity of the stove, and in connection with the deflector ring forces the
heat to the lloor. The base is hot, the floor being warmer than W'th a
base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct at
rear of the fire pot, the heated air being discharged ia a circle at the
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 complete
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 eiects it. intensely heated, through the top ad.'ing 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 remarkab'e saving- of
fuel over any other stove on the market. The stove will hold fire
24 to 48 hours without attention.
