Oyster Bay, lj. [., Aug. 38*,���-Flying
the Hag of the Seawunhaka-Corinthlan
Yacht Club, the Constitution propped
Anohor olf tlie club house late .yesterday afternoon and this morning her
crew wero ready on deck to prepare
the intended cup defender for another
race with her rival,tbe Columbia, The
preparatory signal was tired at 1.80
anil the start was made at 1.85. Tlie
wind was then blowing about four
knots au hour.
The Columbiu gave tlie Constitution
a Rood sound beating twice around
tlie Zunhuka triangular course. On
corrected time the old boat won by
two minutes and seven seconds and on
elapsed lime by one minute 80 seconds.
Hut the figures do not represent, the
deciveness of the Columbia's victory
for, us a matter of fact, she beat the
new hoat twice. Thc first time around
the tiianglo of li,.j' miles .she gained
over five minutes, and then a shift of
wind on the short leg across the
sound put the Constitution upon even
terms when a new race was practically started, the wind now coming
true again. This time tho Columbia
gained over a minuto and a liftn. It
was a day of (luky sound breezes, but
if either got any advantage from the
changes in the wind it was the Constitution. It was at no time a white-
cap breeze and tho water was smooth,
conditions which always favored tbo
Constitution. The new boat did not
seem to have any of the speed she has
shown in light air. She was sluggish
on tho starting line and although the
two yachts crossed almost at tlie same
minute with a one gun start, the
Columbia romped off and took a lead
of one-eighth of a mrlo while the
Constitution was gathering way.
To be sure tbe Constitution was -tying a new mainsail and drew veiy
badly during the first round bnt it
kept getting hotter and better and for
tbe last IS miles of the course was
drawing very well.
Then too, tlie club sail was at most
use in the windwork work. But all
this does not account for her defeat.
Even on the last leg of tho race, in a
close run for home, while both boats
had exactly the same wind and the
Constitution's sails were apparently
drawing foi all they were worth, the
Columbia added over a minute on her
lend. With the International contest
less than a month away today's race
reopens the whole cup defender proposition and the yacbtsmon urn guessing again.
The two boats will start again over
the same course on Saturday. This
will be their last race before the trial
at Newport.
Columbia won by ono minute, -17
seconds; corrected time, three
minutes. The finish time was as
follows: Columbia, 5.8o.!-0; Constitution, 5,,6:17.
New York, Aug. 22.��� Sir Thomas
Lipton'a new challenger (or the
American cup, Shamrock II. hud her
first spin in New York lower buy today, and although it only lasted 00
minutes it was a most satisfactory
performance from start to finish, sir
Thomas Lipton and Designer Watson,
both of whom were on board the
yacht duiing her trial, expressed
themselves as perfectly satisfied with
the result, In sailing about eight
miles dead to windward against a two
knot tide, she covered the distance in
57 minutes and the reach back of six
miles in forty minutes. The wind
was freshand fairly steady from about
south by east and of ten to twelve
knots strength. The yacht carried
mainsail, working topsail, forestays
"nd jib. After tbe yacht's anchor
was down, Sir Thomas boarded tbe
Associated Press tug and told the reporter that the Shamrock would go
ont for a long trial spin tomorrow,
extending to Sandy Hook and perhaps,
it there was clear weather nnd a good
breeze, she might try to eovoi tlio

Pittsburg, l'a.. Aug. 2:!.���Aside
from tho partial equipment of tbe
Star plant, of the American Tin Plate
Cc, and the preparation for is immediate resumption of business, there
weie no special developments in the
strike situation in this city today
No further trouble occurred at the
Pennsylvania Tube works and at all
other strike points quiet reigns. Thc
incident at thc Stai plant this morning is given as un example of special
significance and, to use an amalgamated otlici.U's expression, shows that
the men bave been educated to tbe
knowledge that tbeir strongest
weapon in sueli cases is silence and
submission until it is demonstrated
that the mills cannot be operated successfully without tho uid of skilled
men now on strike.
The steel men, on the other hand,
are highly pleased with their success
in manning the Star plant and say
that if the men tbey secure are not
molested it will be a short time until
all of .the mills will be in foil operation and doing good work. While the
strikers claim that four of the new
men at the Star plant have deserted
tbeir company and say that others
would leave if tbey would get out of
tbe mill, Superintendent Harper main
tains that he has 100 men at work,
that none havo deserted and that the
men can go and conic from the mills
as they please. Mr. Harper says that
the plant will he in smooth riiauing
order tonight and he apprehends no
further difficulty in its operation.
The Painter mill has 250 men at
work and tbe management expect to
be running full handed by next week.
Two mills are beiug operated at the
Lindsay and McC'utcheon plant, one
of tbem being the ten inch mill. No
sign of a break in the Carnegie upper
and lower iron plants made it sappear-
anoe today. McKeesport is still completely tied up but an attempt may be
made to start the Demmler Iron works
tonight with men secured from outside
points. At Irondale the Tin Plate Co.
gained another victory today by the
succcssfull start of one of the rollers.
There are said to bo enough men in
the plant to man one mill one turn
and the oompanv officials saT now
that tbe break has been made they
will get, back the men.

Birmingham, Ala., Aug. 22.���A
s*jalf correspondent of tbe Birmingham News telegraphs from Ashville,
St. Clare Co., today, saying that in a
buttle which occurred there at 1
o'clock between Sheriff North's posse
and a niob of 400 men, who were
.seeking to lynch James Brown, the
negro rapist from Springville, three
men were wounded, two fatally. The
mob dispersed for the time being.
Brown was tried at a special term
of court this morning and sentenced
to be banged September 20th. The
trial lasted two bonis and the jury
was out eleven minutes. When it became noised about that tho court bad
directed the Sheriff to take the prisoner back to Birmingham for safe
keeping, a mob surrounded the court
where Brown was being guarded by
the Sheriff and deputies. The mob
demanded the prisoner and the Sheriff
informed them he would shoot the
rirst man that put bis foot on the
court bouse steps. Ir a few minutes
one of the mob dashed up the steps,
firing a revolver. A genoral fusilade
followed. The Sheriff's force fired
through thc windows and doors and
the mob retreated, firing as tbey
went. Walter Blankenship was shot
through tne head. Arthur Blankenship waB shot in the head and
shoulders with buckshot. Both will
die. A boy named Ilunby was shot io
the bead. Owing to a heavy rain, the
mob sought shelter in nearby stores.
Tbe Sheriff is still in the court bouse
and is trying to open communication
with the Governor in older to get
troops. Another attack on the c ourt
liouse is feared.

Air. T. A.  Russell,    secretary of tbo
Canadian Manufacturers'   Association
of Canada was in the city yesterday
enroute oust from a trip to the coast
in tbe interest-: of the association.
Ilo has interviewed tbe leading manufacturers of tbo wost and yesterday
culled on some of those prominent
along different industrial lines in
Nelson. Ile'eontinued his trip east
lust evening.
A Miner reporter called on Mr. Kus-
sell at the IItime yesterday : "The
Canadian Manufacturers' Association," he said, "is au organization of
the manufacturer of Canada for the
purpose of tuking up nil matters bearing upon the industrial progress of the
Dominion. The membership at the
present time comprises piactically all
the large manufacturing concerns and
numbers approximately a thousand.
The Association has a central executive committee comprised of representatives from all the provinces and
from all the leading industries; it has
as well an executive committee for
each province, to deal with questions
of local interest, and also to cot far on
subjects of wider Dominion importance. The British Columbia commit cc was elected at Vancouver re
cently with Mr. W. Sully of E. H.
Heaps & Co., (lumbermen), Van
conver, us chairman; Mr, D. It. hter,
of Brackman-Ker Milling Co., as vice
chairman, and a strong list of representative men on the executive. Organized in this thorough way the
association should be able to deal
with some of the leading questions
that affect the interests of this
country, especially of this province.
"The object of my visit is to become as thoroughly acquainted as
possible with the vat-ions mutters requiring to be dealt with in order to
advance the industrial interests of
this province so that the whole Canadian Manufacturers' Association
may be in a position to support any
action along these lines. For this
purpose I have visited many of the
industrial centres in the province and
have met representatives of the mining and smelting interests, of the
lumber, fisb canning, iron working
and other industries and have through
them learned much that will assist
me in obtaining for them the support
of the easteru Canadian interests in
tbe measures of reform for which they
are asking.
"Generally speaking business is
quieter in Hritish Columbia than well
wishers of t'oo province would wish
to see it. Although the lumber trade
is in a fairly good position at present,
the lumbermen foel the injustice of
the present tariff relations between
Canada and the United States. A
heavy duty on lumber entering the
United States prevents Canadian
shipments to that market while the
American lumberman can at any
time ship any surplus stock into the
Canadian market duty free. In this
way while a mill south of the boundary bas its own large market to itself.
and also a free entrance to our smaller
market, the one north of the line bus
no entrance to the large market and
only an even chance lor the smaller.
This condition tends to injure the B.
C. lumberman in the domestic mnrket, and more adequate shipping
facilities seem to be required for the
foreign trade.
"The canners on the Fraser rivet-
are, as every one knows, enjoying a
splendid run of lish and the indications are that this season's pack will
be a recoid one. As soon as the large
amounts of money involved in this
industry begin to be distributed trade
on the coast will improve. The canners, however, complain bitterly that
the Dominion (iovernment is not
properly caring for this industry by
the establishment of hatcheries, nor
in its fishing regulations. Tlie mutter
will likely conn- up for full discussion
at Ottawa very soon.
"But   the   most  serious    condition

Paris, Aug. 22.���According to the
foreign office officials this afternoon
there is no news und no chnnge in the
Turkish situation. It was noticeable
that the officials were moie reticent
than yesterday. While reasserting
tbat no naval demonstration is contemplated, they refuse to confirm or
deny the truth of the news contained
a in special despatch suving thut
three battleships and n orusier, which
arrived ut Toulon tbis morning, are
taking coul aud provisions on board.
Thoy said they had no information on
the subject. Perhaps it is not lacking in significan.'e that M. Deschanel,
President of the Chamber of Deputies,
who was attending the council generul
at Oh art res, suddenly went to l!am-
boullet this morning to see President
Loubet, and ulso that M. Delcusse,
the Minister of Foreign A Hairs, leaves
the consul-general of Arile und returns to Paris tomorrow to ut'.end u
special meeting of tbe cabinet called,
it is asserted, to arrange the programme for the reception and entertain men t of the Czar. In the meanwhile, tbe Turkish Ambassador,
Muuir Bay, is absent and at the
Turkish embassy only minor officials
are usable. They assume an air of
absolute indifference and ignorance in
the whole affair. Most of the diplomatists are away for the summer
holidays, hence, it is difficult to obtain
a concensus of opinion. Talking to
the correspondent of the Associuted
Press, one of the oldest ones, who
has been connected with the diplomatic corps for over 25 yeurs, said ;
���'The Sultan's hand contains one
trump just now. It is not likely that
France will ran the ri6k of opening
the question on the eve of the Czar's
The newspapers here under the influence of the overwhelming joy at
tho Czar's approaching visit, are paying scant attention to Constantinople, and generally ure taking the
view that the matter will soon be
settled to France's sutisfaction. The
coming of tho Czar is causing intense
satisfaction throughout tbe country.
The Council General are now sitting,
nud even those in which the opponents of tbe Government are in the
majority are passing resolutions
warmly congratulating President
Loubet and thc Ministiy on the occasion of the Czar's visit which is regarded us a happy result of the Government's foreign policy. The Temps
hus tyi official note this afternoon on
the lines of the interview which the
correspondent'of tlie Asociated Press
obtained jeiterdny with a high official
of thc foreign office, suying: "The
rupture as yet is only the peisonal act
of M. Constans, (tbe French Ambassador at Constantinople), and will only
iiecome officially complete if the Sul-
tun persists in his present attitufe, in
which case, us Munir Bey is absent
fiom France, it will only be necessary
to notify him not to'roturn until diplomatic relations are resumed."
The Temps udds tbat there is no
question at present of a naval demonstration und sin's if it becomes neces-
sury, France may imitate the example of Austria who once under
similar circumstances seized the custom houses of certain Ottoman   ports,
Brussels, Aug. 22.���The Indepen*
dente Beige today prints a despatch
from Copenhagen wliioh says; "It is
currently reported in Russian circles
that the Czar has dcoided to broach
Soutli African intervention to Emperor
William and President Loubet. He
considers the time opportune for
friendly mediation." The paper
adds, under reserve, that the Czar during bis Btay iu France will receive
Mr. Kruger in private audience and
obtain from him a direct statement of
tha Boer position with a view of
formulating u plan for action.

There is no hope of thc Islander

it is impossible to work below 12

of the unfortuna tc liner is sealed forever. She was fully insured, however, and her 1-iss will therefore not
be felt by the owning company except
in thc excellent service which she
provided and for which it will be
difficult to liud another vessel to uphold her record for speed and comfort.

seems to prevail iu tbe mining industries of tlio province and tlie effect uf
this is being felt not only in tins
province but throughout the whole
Dominion. ltrielly Bpoalting tlio
(lillleulties seem to arise from tu-o
sources, (1) tlio lubor situation and
(_) provincial legislation.
"The labor question is a grave and
dillh-tilt one, and one witli whicli our
association has never to anv extent
interfered, tbe members ot our euni-
mittees not. favoring any organisation
of employers as against employer!.
This    sentiment  is    now  changing
rapidly, however, an labor unions in
every province and in almost every
ti ndi! have oomo forward mailing
demands that would seriously cripple
the industrial progress of Ihe conntry.
Many members who bave always been
most friendly disposed to the labor
cause have during the past lew months
written us urning- that tho time lias
now come when tlio manufacturers
nnd employers of labor al' the whole
Dominion must stand together In resist thu demands being made
upon them. .Such an action is Inevitable aud will ho (piieltly consummated unless thete is some modification
of the labor situation.
"Hence there has heen much discussion as to tho adoption of a system of
compulsory arbitration, and New
Zealand is nuw a much quoted
countiy. I am not in a position to
spealt in any way officially on this
subject which may at no distant date
be discussed by the manufacturers,but
sur.ly New Zealand, a country a
week's sail from any neighboring land,
is hardly a fair parallel to Canada,
whose territory is at nil points contiguous to, and whose trade relations aro
so interwoven with the United States.
"However, I believe that if assurance could he given first, that tho
liiKiiiiys of an arbitration board would
be as binding on the employee who
can move to the United Stales on a
moment's notice,as an employer, who
has permanent investments in tbo
country nnd second, that no political
consideration could become interwoven
with its administration, then and
then only, many employers of labor
would welcome a system of no called
compulsory arbitration.
"As to the provincial legislation
hampering tbe mining industry 1
would not care to speak at present
other than to deplore any such class of
legislation should it exist. There ure
two considerations that should not
be lost sight of in legislation of this
kind. Tbe first is that the mining
and all its attendant industries are.
yet in their infancy in this province,
and a policy looking to the encouragement of foreign investments in tbis
line Is sure to reap far greater ultimate results than any hasty attempt
to get all that Is possible out of
pioneer establishments.
"The second is tho hazardous
character of investments in this and
other industrial lines. If for example
a retailer or wholesaler over purchases in any line lie ran sell out at
50, GO or 80 cents on the dollar; if
however, u mun invests in plant,
machinery, ete., and makes a mistake
he must sell out at ten or twenty cents
on the dollar. Ilence a generous
policy in dealing with the establishent
of industrial enterprises is not only
bound to be the profitable policy in
the long run but it is just ar.d
fair In principle.
"As to railway matters, I see that
Prof. S. J. McLean, the Government
railway rate commissioner, is soon to
be in this district. Mr. .McLeans'
mission is, of course, not. a remedial
one and he has no power to deal wilh
any grievances that may bo presented. His mission is solely to secure
sneb information as to the classes of
grievances that prevail in railway
rates in order that tho Government
may ho in a position to legislate intelligently on this important mailer.
The general belief is that drtring
next session a bill will he introduced
to provide lor the appointment of a
permanent railway commission to deal
with all railway grievances.
"It is of course important that the
fullest information be given to the
Commissioner iu order that when
the permanent commission is appointed, it may be fully equipped to
deal with the matters brought befo
"Our association appeared before
l'rof. McLean in Toronto and look up
the question from the standpoint of
the Canadan manufacturer and shipper, protesting against the policy of
extending better rates to foreign man-
uacturers than to our own. At that
time the relatively high rates from
Eastern Canada to tbia district was
discussed, and I havo no doubt but
that your Board of Trade wi.l go
more fully into this. In so doing
they will strengthen the hands of the
Government in passing any legislation that may be requited.

the development of that province and
assist in livening the business of the
whole countrv.
" 1 am gald also to note that the
people of eastern Canada are coining
to tnke a livelier interest in tbe questions lhat atVccl the west, an interest
that should hear gcod results in the
near future.''

An Islander Survivor Tells His   Story
of The Catastrophe.
Victoria, 11. C, Aug. .12.���A. C.
Reach, who was one of the l'Mrst, Contingent in South Africa, was on thc
Islander at lira time of the wreck,
lie says: ''Everybody seemed resigned" to waiting for boats. We
drifted on a raft, first one
man, and then another swimming
away, Imping to Improve his condition. .Then a isft appeared looming
up large in the mist, and a lot of men
thought to improve their lot and swam
towards her, '.owing our rafl with
them. They found the other raft,
little better than ours, excepting that
there were fewer men clinging to her
line. Several men from our raft in-
eluding Olier liurkliolder, who had
given up his plaee ill a boat to a lady,
joined this raft, whicli paddled away,
the men on hor using wreckage to
navigate her. Our raft then cap-
si/.Pd. I immediately dived clear and
not being encumbered with life preservers, swam back to hoi and re
gained my position. So did three
other men, including a big Chinaman,
who rolled about, capsizing the raft
subsequently at various intervals. I
tried to throw him into tho water as
he bad u life preserver on. but was
unsuOCOSsful, and then tried to choke
him into insensibility, but the raft
capsized preventing this, and I submitted to the inevitable.
"The noise and cries of the people
who thought they wero in danger
was heartrending. Many suffered
terribly from cold. Several people
seemed to Im delirious. Tbey would
shout, 'Good-bye, boys, I'm going,'
and no doubt thought tbey were, but
their life belts preventedliiein Among
these was the captain. lie bid us
good-bye several times. At last, he
shouted, ' Good-bye,' aud throwing up
bis arms the life belt slipped upwards
over his shoulders and head and he
sank like a stone. "

P. .1. Nichols, a well known mining
man. has just closed a deal whereby
he secures a bond and lease on the
Kern mine for live years. Tbe group
tncludeds lour claims and two
fractions, the, Kern, Etrurla, Eureka,
Hidden Treasure and Chicera and
Hope fractions. It is situated on
Hnll creel; about two miles from Hall
Siding. During the early part of 1900
some BOO tons of oro were mined and
milled, and the company paid a
dividend, but later the mine was shut
down and has been closed since.
Mr. Nichols, the lessee, is a
thoroughly practical mining man,
having had 2a years experience in the
business, aud believes the mine can
he turned into a profitable one.
Nearly 1,500 feet of tunnelling has
been rnn on tbe ledge, wTiich has an
average width of three feel. The development work done consists of four
tunnels, the total length of which are
given above, connected by a shaft
through to the surface. On the lower
tunnel 1(10 feet of vein has been
blocked, but little sloping has heen
done as yet. There is also a ten
stamp mill on the property. The ore
consists of a quartz gangue carrying
gold and the average net return is IflW)
to tho ton. ")f this 00 per cent, is
saved in tbe mill and the remainder iu
the form of concentrates. The ore has
improved in character with depth, as
near the surface it was only rich in
spots, being broken and bunchy,
while at depth it is solid and contains an even value throughout. At
present 15 men are employed, but this

An interesting development of the

expert, who is said to be looknig
over the situation on behalf of himself
and London friends who have large
interests in the Le Roi. He has visited Kossland and Northport I'or the
purpose of getting a neaier view of
the situation and thc presumption is
that what he is cabling to London is
of a nature unfriendly to the interest
of Whit alter Wright and bis friends.
It is alleged that it will be used in
