lliey do not desire to huoy the country

Itself for the   awful   blow.      For   the

light he would consider the clywces of
lltliuale    recovery   are   exceedingly
���ood.   Several uf his colleagues, how-
per, aro not so sanguine.
The    President   has     been   dosing
Irowslly   throughout   tho  major portion of the day.     Two physicians and
Iwo  trained nurses aro  constantly  at

Ircciloiu   from   excitement the   pbysi-

the sick chamber today.
���'lis. M'KINLKY AT THE BEDSIDE
With   the   exception   of  physicians
attendants,    Mrs.   McKinley was
the  onlv   person   wlio    crossed     the
sliolil.    The Preqident ashed to see

Mrs, McKinley throughout this try-

I'lsrsiilf and her sorrow and has heen

PATIENT'S CONDITION.
The President has tauen no hourish-
>n<"iit since he wns Bhot. Water is
I Riven to him at intervals but no food
"f any kind as yet His physicians
H��y be has plenty of reserve strength
'"draw unon and for the present
neither nourishment nor aitilioial
���jtlinulaiits are necessary. Beyond
'"oiling after the wound no medicine
'""''''IU. digitalis has been given.
"IgUalla is administered to quiet his
pulse, which mounted this morning to
141). Hoth his respiration and toniner-
uturo, although they varied considerably during the day were considered
I satisfactory, lbs doctors issued live
bulletins between six this morning
and 0.80 p in. They showed an
absence of unfavorable conditions up
to 0,80 p. in. They were regarded us
very hopeful. The record of pulse
slu>wcil a wide variation dming the
day but any alarm occasioned on
that score was minimized hy a statement from Dr. Rixey that the President's pulse under the normal r-ondi-
tions wns inclined to be erratic and
that he was not unfavorably impressed by the circumstance. The physicians were not concerned as to the
patient's eondition. During iho forenoon and well into the afternoon it
held at 11):; degrees arrd then began to
increase slightly. At 8,4fl it was at
108 2 and three hours later it hud
risen to 103.5, but even at the hitter
point it was loohud upon as buing
quite satisfactory.
VICE PRESIDENT ARRIVES.
Vice President Roosevelt renehed
the Milburn resilience shortly after 1
o'clock today after travelling eontinu-
oulv since 7 o'clock last night, when
he left Burlington, Vt. He was
escorted from the station as far as
the Hotel Iroquois hy �� squadron of
mounted police. He expressed his
deep distress nt tlio tragedy but beyond that decided not to make any
statement. Ilo remained at thc residence ahout half an hour and then
went to the nearby home of Anslov
Wilson, whose guest ho will be during his stay.
By evening all the members of '.he
Cabinet except Secretary Hay nnd
Secretary Long had arrived. Both the
Secretary pf State and Secretary of
tbe Navy aro expected tomorrow.
Secretary Wilson and Secretary Boot
spent most of tbe day at the Milburn
residence. All the members of tho
Cabinet will remain here until the
result of the wounds is determined.
It is probable that after they all arrive a Cabinet meeting will he held.
Informally they have discussed todav
the possibility of Vice-President
Roosevelt being called upon to act as
chief executive during the disability
of the Piesident but all precedents are
against such course, w bile the President lives.
AT MIDNIGHT.
The scene about the Milburn house
nt midnight was cheerless. A blustering windstorm blew up during the
nigbt and with it drifted licht clouds
of fog. Tho temperature fell materially and the sentries wbo were on
duty hsd to rnuflle up to keep warm.
In addition to the regulars a .score of
police were also on guard but they
paced deserted Invite. A few shaded
lamps burned in tho Milburn home,
one marking the room where tbo
President lies. It was the opening of
the day named as the critical one for
the victim of the crnel tragedy and
the watchers were keenly alert for the
expected change.
Those in the sick room reported
that tho patient was still doing very
well.
PRISONER'S   STATEMENT.
Leon Czolgosz, the self avowod
disciple of Emma Ooldman and the
radical anarchist leaders, who shot
President McKinlcv. insists that bo is
alone rcsponsiole for bis crime. lie
says that ho talked it over in advance
in a general way with hia friends but
that be ivnB not advised by tbem and
that there was no plot or conspiracy
to take the life of the President in
which any one else had a part. He
dcolined to furnish the names of the
men with whom he discussed the,
crime of Friday nut ihe police believe
they will' yet learn them and tlrat
when thoy do they wil I havo exposed
the anarchistic plot of whicli they aro
confident the prisoner was the iinal
agent of murder
Czolgosz submitted to six hours of
examination at tbe hands ofthe police
ollicials today and wns tired out when
they led him tack and locked him up
for the night.
The examination of the prisoner was
unsuccessful savo in so far as his own
individual fate is concerned, for
while be tells nothing that would implicate any ono eisn in his crime, he
went over the scene at the Temple of
Music when ho shot tne President
again and again Ho even went to
the extent of illustraing to the ollicers
the manner in whioh ho shot tho
President and told with pride how ho
decloved the President and his protectors with the bandaged hand that held
the revolver.
When ho was In ought before Superintendent Bull and District Attorney
Penny he was not disposed to talk
very freely, and when a question was
put to him he took ample time to do-
liberate. Later his tongue loosened
somewhat and by the close of the
afternoon ho talked more freely. His
admission tbat be had discussed tho
e.-ime with many friends wns finally
drawn from him but there he stopped
and would not be moved. Tbe police
say that when he comes to a true appreciation of his position, ho will
break itown and fully confess. Io addition to the examination to which
the prisoner was submitted, city and
federal detectives spent tho day in
scouring the citv for some trace oi
possible confederates. They did not
succeed in connecting him with any
of thc societes who make tbeir headquarters here.
The general theory now held by the
detectives is that a circle of Czolgosz's
assooiates plotted tho murder and
thnt he waB picked by lot or induced
by persuasion to finally carry out the
conspiracy. Ilis trail has beon taken
up at Cleveland and it in said that the
inquiry there will let in some valuable light as to his coinnanions nnd j
his fellow conspirators.   Tho prisoner
was kept secluded today nnd an a
result of a suggestion from Socretary
Of Wur Itoot, the police inquiry will
| be mado as secretly as possible. The
prisoner has not retained counsel and
when the subject was mentioned to
him today, he said that he did not
desire n lawyer to defend him.
A  LUCID ACCOUNT.
Newspaper Man's Narrative of the
Shooting.
Buffalo, N. y., Sopt. 7.���On many
material points, and particularly the
utterances of the President after he
was shot, the witnesses of yesterday's
tragedy at tho Tempi? of Music fail
to agree. Tho acting of the tragedy
was very fast, and its commission was
followed by a scene of confusion in
which it was difficult either to see or
hear with accuracy,however close one
stood to the President and his assailant. It is now conceded that the
President did not say "May Hod forgive him," after he wan shot, and it
is agreed that his first audible speech
was a reference to his wife, "I trust
Mrs. McKinley will not be informed
of this; nt least I hope it will not be
exaggerated!"
A newspnper reporter who stood
just behind tht President when the
shooting occurred gave out the clearest accounts obtained tbis far. Ilo
said: I stood about two feet from
the President, saw Czolgosz aproneh
him. The latter had his right hand
drawn up close to his nreust and a
whito linen handkerchief wrapped
abont it, boie the appearance of bandage. He extended his left hand and
I am qnite sure the President thought
it wns injured for he leaned forward
nnd looked at him in a sympathetic
way. When duectly in front, of President Czolgosz threw his right hand
forward and IIred. I saw tho flash
and smoke followed by the report and
heard the second shot instantly.
John Parker, tho colored man, and
���Secret Agent Foster were upon Czolgosz and tney hore him to the Hcor.
Czolgosz, lying prostrate, still retained a hold on his revolver aud he
seemed to bo trying to get his arm
free to fire Again. The President did
not fall, he raised bis right hand and
felt his breast and seemed to be maintaining his uptight position only by
wonderful effort. I am sure he did
not speak at that moment. He gazed
fixedly at his assassin and with a look
which I cannot describe, but which I
shall never forget, in a moment
reeled back into the arms of Secretary
Cortollyou. C/.olgosz's revolver had
by that time been knocked from his
hand nnd some one had picked up the
hnndkerchief which lay at his feet.
Czolgosz was puked up. forced baok
and again knocked down. Mr. Cortelyon and Mr. Milburn supported the
President and led him to a chair. I
heard him ask that the news be kept
from his wife and a moment later,
when Secretary Cortelyon asked him
if he felt muoh pain he said, "This
wound hurts very much." He seemed
to be fairly easy as be rested in the
chair and somo of his fading color
came bock to bis face. lie i cached
his right hand inside of bis shirt and
when he withdrew it his fingcis were
tipped witn blood.
He paled again at tho sight of the
blood and.I think he fainted. Senor
Azpiroz, tlie Moxican Minister, broke
through the crowd and rushing up to
tho President cried, "My (Jod, Mr.
President, are you shot?" The Minis*
ter seemed annul to throw himself nt
the feet of the President and was
restrained. The President's answer
came very slowly and in a halting,
subdued voice. He said, "Yes, 1
belicvo I am "
The President's attention was attracted by the scuffle of the officers
who were dragging the would-be murderer away, but be did not speak. His
head rested on the arm of Mr. Mil-
burn and he seemed only partially
conscious. His courage was Birperb
and whilo he wns conscious he wns
the master of tho pain which he
suffered. When the ambulance arrivod
a stretcher was brought in, he started
forward and partially regained bis
feet unassisted.
I heard not a worn from the assailant or tho Preiident. Ilo was struck
down the moment he fired the shots
and if he Aid speak it was probably in
an exclaraattion at tbe very rough
treatment be was receiving.
NO ONE TO BLAME
Due
Precautions Were Taken to Protect thc President.
Milburn Residence, Buffalo, N. Y.,
Sept. 7.���Secretary Wilson desires the
country to understand that overy possible precaution was taken to prevent
tbe awful tragedy yesterday. To an
Associated Press correspondent today,
he said:   "Last Thursday night when
the President witnessed the grand
i 11 mil i nnl ii in nf the Exposition I was
Impiesscd with the ease with which
some evil dlsoosed person might hnvu
crept np in tlie darkness between tho
Hashes of pyrotechnics, and have dorm
the President bodily barm, Seoretarv
Cortelyon was similarly impressed and
we talk*rd tbe matter over at great
length as we sat. on the bench watching tho display. 1 confess that much
of my pleasure was destroyed bv the
dread of what might have happened.
Wo i.poke of the reception at the Temple of Music which had been arranged
for the next day. We both agreed
that the danger which might exist
would he from Olganized Anarchists
or some demented person, hut tho
pos'iblity of just such a tragedy as
this occurring, we could not but.
admit. The only thing we realized
woiijd not do, wns to dissuade tho
President fron holding the reception
arrd with the memory of this conversation in his mind, Secretary Cortelyon
yesterday took special precautions.
Detectives, guards and soldiers were
employed,nothing that foresight could
imagine was omitted, and yet the
dastardly crime was committed.
While it wns warm, many peoplo
were mopping tbetr brows with their
handkerchiefs aud the detectives who
were watching vigilantly for a possible weapon in the band of a would-be
assassin hail no suspicion of what lay
concealed in what apparently was the
bantlaged hand of Czol_osz. All the
secret service bird been especially
cautioned. I desire to have this statement, made public, not only that the
people may understand that the ns-
saull cannot be attributed to carelessness, but ttltto in justice to Seeretary
Cortelyolt, who with a faithfulness
and hiypltv seldom parallelled, has
striven upon all oeaasions to safeguard the life of the President."
for 10 hours more we feel that he will
surely recover, 1 pertonnlly feel
quite hopelul.''

secret of the fact that tbey anticipated
something of wbtob they might talk
over. In the speeches mention of the
name of McKinley brought cheers of
condemnation and there were cheers
for the President's assailant.
Lnko P. Collerau, chief of detec'
tives, concerning the anarchists said :
"I found upon examination that they
have beeu in China, Switzerland.
France, England, Germany, Bohemia

more ratlical than persons nnd spies
were. They believe in no ballot box
but in government by groups."
Chief O'Neil of tile police depart
ment received a telegram from Buffalo

belief that the plot originated in
Chicago. The text of the telegram is

CUMIN-- TO THE FRONT.
Southeast Kootenay is coming rap*
idly to the front of lato and a period
of aotilvty and prosperity is certainly
sotting in there. Contraots have
been let for the constiuction of most
1 of the British Columbia Southern rail
way and within tbo next few days
the will all have been let. Tho
work has been divided up into small
contracts 80 as to expedite construction and in a ^hort time several hun
tired men will be employed in construction. In anticipation of the
completion of the iuilway line thi'
Crow's Nest Coal Company is opening
up some new _*oal seams, putting in
additional machinery, building additional coke ovens, and it is certain
that before long the present uutpul
will be at least doubled and that tin
present force of Illinois and coke oven
tenders will be increaed from 000 to
1.S0O mon. It is obvious that the
completion of the British Columbia
Southern,which will give a short con
nection with the (Ireat Northern sys
tem, will open np a new aud enlarged
market for both coke and coul.
The owners of the Sullivan mine
have fully decided to build a smelter
nt MaryBville on Mark creek and this
will give the mine owners of East
Kootornay a nearby reduction plant
and do away with the long haul to
which the ores aro at present subjected and should prove an Important factor in the future of the section.
A. Uobo, tho representative of a
wealthy Montana syndicate, has bond
ed for 8100,0(11) a group of iron proper
ties on Bull creek. This following so
close in thc heelB of tbo purchased by
tho syndicate, headed by Sir William
Van Ilorno, of the group of iron
properties near Kitchener indicate
most clearly that capital is taking a
deep interest in iron deposits and
that ere long the making of iron and
steel will ne adoed to tho other Industries ot the province. At Kitchener
the work of developing the iron deposits is going ahead as rapidly as
possible in order to determine if the
quantity is sufficient to justify tho
erection of 11 large plant for the manufacture of iron und steel and the explorations so far indicate that the deposits are sullieiently largo for tho
purpose   which    tho   coinpany has   in
view.
From thc Windermere country the
news is of an encouraging character.
The Paradise mine bas just completed
the shipment of 1,000 tons of ore to
the Trail smelter, and several iiupoi-
tant strikes of ore of a good grade
have been mado thero. When the section is given a railway there will be a
good tonnage of  ore  for it to handle,
It is evident that the time has turned and is on the Hood in the mining
section to tbe cast of us antl that
from now on it will prosper. It is
tine of the best mining sections of
i'ritish Col in bi a and was for a period
overlooked in the desire to invest in
eiiinps which for the time being were
booming, but now that ils merits are
being recognized it will ratlinly come
to the front.
KOCH'S TUBERCULOSIS T11KOHY.
King Edward has appointeed a commission to investigate Proiessor
Koch's theory in regard to tuberculosis. This is paying a very high compliment to the theory of the (ierninn
s dentist, but shows how important
anything is that w'll throw any light
on a disease which is more destructive
to human life thaD any other. Profes
sor Koch's holds that animal tuberculosis as it exists in cattle, for in
stance, cannot be transmitted tc human beings. It has generally been
held bv physicians that, milk from
COWS afflicted with tuberculosis wns
one of the main vehicles by which the
disease was spread.
It has been established that the dis-
ease is contagious,antl must be treated
ns such, and that it is easily curable
in the eariier stages.
The foundation of its modern treatment was laid when Professor Koch
discovered the bacillus tnbeicnlosis in
lssii. It wus found that expectorations of a patient during period
uf 04 hours contained billions of
ihe germs. They obtain entrance into
the system through inhalation and
the secretions of the nose destroy
them. If they pass the nostrils o' a
healthy person they are destroyed, but

Wu are not surprised to notiee in
some quarters a reaction against kin-'
dergarten teaching, says the Presbyterian Review. Like almost cvely
other good method, the kindergarten
has been abused. Enthusiasts have
sought to apply its principles whore
no good could result, and the method
has beon discredited. A little reaction will do good rather than harm.
Already the objections raised to the
methods of the kindgarten huve
brought out replies that indicate clearly the limitations that are supposed to
govern the application of these methods. For awakening interest, fur cultivating the powers of observation
and of elassiiioation, for training the
child to submit to discipline, and for
cultivating tbo social instinct, no
method will ho found better than the
kindergarten properly applied.

A CORRECT COMCT.PTKIN OF   GOD.
(Concluded)
John Bu'rtt Morgan.
i;i Tbo character of God������"perfectly good." Here again, as always, we
nra oonfna ed with the limitations
of human tnought and the Inadequacy
of human language. It is true lis has
li.'i'ii frequently pointed out, that
men's standards of goodness vary
widely and much diversity of opinion
i- manifested in their classifications
of character and conduct. Nevertheless there is a deep and general agreement as 10 what, constitutes "goodness" and tho word thus stands for a
definite, though varying ideal. Moreover it does not matter that this ideal
varies, since all re-ogni/.e that the
nature und existence of the thing
Itself is not measured or determined
hy the mental concept wb'iofc any in-
ilividual or individuals may havo of
ii. Realizing, therefore, the necessary variations of standard and confessing the int perfections of the highest thought, we may say that Hod
combines In His character the perfection of all that may he described us
'���good.''
(3) The relation of Hod to all other
iiNisteiico--''creates,sntains and orders
all." Nothing can bo more rational
than the relationship revealed by
Christianity as existing between God
and the universe. If Hod be Ood, Ilo
must he recognized as the originator
of all thiol's. How He creates is entire lv aside from the question. If
Ilis power is not and has not always
been, sufficient for the calling of all
things mto existence there must tlion
he another greater power, and He
peases to he tin Supreme. And hy the
binne necessity must lie sustain and
order all. Consonunt with these demands of reason, the sacred i-ioriptures
open with the masterly assumption,
���'In lhe beginning Ood," and the
eloslng seal is put upon divinf revelation while the unique and majestic
declaration; "i am the Alpha and the
Omega," sounds through the arches o.'
heaven and re-echoes du.vu the loug
corridor of the centuies.
|(l) The motive of Ood ���"holy
love." To uiifoltl the marvelous,
match loss, inexhaustible, Imperishable
and ''holy love" of Ood to mankind
may be said to he the peculiar glory
of the Christian religion. Imperfectly
sjen in nature and vaguely surmised
in human philosophy it remained foi
Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ of Ood,
iu whom "dwelli'th nil the fulness of
the Godhead bodily," to put into tlie
Intelligible characters of concrete life
and activity the truth that -'God is
love." And yet how slew has been
the progress toward this supreme
truth 1 Anything hut an acceptance
of It! And" today men half and stum-
tile on the threshold of the kingdom of
God, failing to grasp the signiliennee
nf Oalrary or to discern amid ihe discordant clamors of "isn-.s" and
"ologies" the gospel call of love.
Won In they but listen to heaven's
message, "Peace on earth, good-will
toward men" would speedily become
the song1 of earth's as ut il as heaven's
choirs, 'Thy kingdom come, thy will
he done."

A GOOD PLAY.
"Roanoke" is tbe name of Hal
Reid's greatest dramatic effort. Perhaps Mr. Reid bas written more and
better plays in tbe past ten veins than
any other American author, and
''Roanoke" is conceded to be his
masterpiece. "Human Hearts,1.' "A
Night Before Christmns," "A Homespun Uenrt," are all from his prolille
pen. "Roanoke" is a play of southern lifo, us its name implies, and tbat
beautiful southern atmosphere of love
and devotion are dopicted in a masterful manner. The company which will
present this beautiful play at the
Nelson Opera House on Monday night,
is un excellent one. Each artist being
selected for his or her speciul fitness
fur the characters. The scenery and
offeets are said to he very beautiful.
The company is under the management of R. E. French who ii an old
favorite in Nelson. They only remain in Nolson ono night and make
the long jump from Hpokune to play
Nelson and Rossland one   nigbt each.

A BIG DEAL.
Last Saturday there was closed in

far made on an Aspen drove propeity,
says the Similkameen Star of August
30. Alexander GalUhger of Oshkosh,
Wis., has bonded tho interests of
Messrs.Silverthorne aud Rogers In the
Mount Maria group on a basis of S10U-
000. The group, consisting of four
claims, adjoiLS that of thc Portland,
and was located last yeor by Jack
Hates. He sold the same for a nominal consideration to the present
owners. This summer, with the expenditure of a few hundred dollars
they succeeded in opening a four-foot
vein of yellow and grey copper showing streaks of native coppor. On this
lead they sunk two pro-peel shafts SIS
and _0 feet deep respectively. In the
former at a depth of seven foot an average sample of the ore gave 10 per
cont. copper and 83.50 in gold.
The values as depth was obtained m
creased most satisfactorily. Mr. Gal-
linger will promote a company in Oshkosh Wis., to acquire and develop
the group.

Piof.   McLean   Received   a Statement
From tbe Nelson Board ot Trade.
Yesterday afternoon ('rot. McLean,
the Doimnion (iovernment Commissioner, appointed to enquire into
freight rato grievances met members
of the Nelson Hoard of Trade to take
evidence regarding the complaints of
the Nelson shippers. There were
present. V, Chapman, R. Robertson.
B. J. Hamilton, J. C. T. Crofts, Vi.
W. Beer, (I. V. Holt, W. A. Macdonald, K. C. P, W. .Swannell and
II. E. Macdonnell.
The proceedings consisted entirely
of the presentation of a statement by
the Hoard.    It was as follows:
In submitting this report we desire
to state that we do so on behalf of the
wholesale trade of the city.
Firsts-There is a largo and well
established wholesale trade now
between Nelson and the cities and
towns of IOastern and Western Soutll-
Kootenay, but the following figures
will indicate to some extent the dilli-
cnlties which confront our wholesale
trade in competing In their own terri-
to-y they being compelled under
existing conditions to sacrifice their
profit on tho additional cost of the
goods, such additional cost being
caused by a higher inward rate than
that paid by their competitors.

In comparing goods i in poi ted
Nelson from Vancouver and distributed to adjacent points as against tbe
same shipped direct from Vancouver
to same points, the latter onse being
governed by the Vancouver Wholesalers' Tariff
(Here another table showing more
comparisons as aboie was inserted.)
While these comparisons have been
taken with western points only the
same can be made with Eastern
points, owing to the same inward
rate applying to something like forty
points i:i Kootonay. Whilo rcogniz-
ing the difficulty of nrranging rales
to please everyone, we feel that Nelson wholesalers should be given a
special wholesalers' schedule the same
as granted to other whloesale centers
where shipments are made by wholesalers to retail traders
Third.���It is n well known fact tbat
at times goods are mis-described in
order to seoure a lowor class rate and
this leaves our wholesalers two alternatives, viz. either to stoop to the
practice or allow their competitors to
secure business through this illegitimate way, and while we believe the
railway companies are doing all in
their power to prevent this by the
employment of inspectors, wo think
that the best remedy lor this evil
would be for the government lo make
it a penal offensu.
KNOWLEDGE OF FOOD
Propur Selection of Great Importance  in
Summer.
Vents, Drawers and
Suils for Ladles, Misses

Combination
and Children
&  CD'S.
The feeding of infants is a very
serious proposition, as all mothers
know. Food must be used that will
easily digeHt. or the undigested parts
will be thrown into the Intestines and
c.'ilisii sickness.
It is Important to know that a food
can be obtained that is always safe;
that is Ornpe-Nuts.
A niothei write*,: "My baby took
i He lirst. premium* at a bally show on
too 8th inst., and is in every way a
prize baby. I have fed him on Grape*
Nuts since lie was live months old. I
n Iso use your I'ostum Food Ciill'eo' for
myself." Mrs. L. !���'. Fishback,
Alvin, Tex.
(Iiapc-Nuts food is not made solely
for a liahy food by any means,   but IS
manufactured for  all  human  beings
who have trilling, or i*erious, difficulties in the sjomncli and bowels.
Ono opecial point of value is Hint
the food is prcdlgefltod in Hie process
of manufacture, not by any drugs or
chemicals whatsoever, hut simply by
the action of heat, moisture, ami
time, which permits the diastase to
grow,   und   ohange   the   starch   Into
grape-sugar, This presents food to
ihe system ready fur Immediate assimilation.
Its especial Value lis ll food, llevond
the fact that It is easily   digested,    is
that it supplies the needed elements
to quickly rebuild the cells iu the
brain and nerve centers throughout
tin* body.
