Cattleman's Invention Did   Not Work.
Second Trial Today.
Sandy Hook. N. Y.. Nov. 15.���Tbe
failure of Inventor Cattleman's theory
of his invention in the test made hero
todav, is ascribed bv lilm to nn imperfect detonation of the fuse in the
interior of the shell. The army
officers, however, claim that they
have found aonvinoing proof to the
contrary and say that everything in
connection with the test wns ns perfect as possible to make it. in accordance with the inventor's wishes The
board has deoided to give a second
trial, to which the inventer is entitled tomorrow morning.
A test made later in the day with
the regulation gun on tho duplicate
target was a complete success.
The gun used today wan n specially
nuilt piece of ordnance six inches
larger in bore and several feet longer
than any now in use being of Is
Inches bore and 44 feet in length.
The projectile was ai shell IH inches
in diameter anil six feet in length,
containing a charge of 5U0 pounds of
wet guncolton the whole, including
shell, weighing 1.850 pounds,
The claim of tho inventor wns that

his shell or torpedo wonld disable any
battleship in exiftene at a distance
of 3..100 yards. A duplicate target on
which the regulation 12-inch breach
leading rillo with a 12-inch midvale

made a perfectly clean entrance and
exploded after passing through the
plate.making a most deplorable wreck
of the interior. A report of the final
result will be given tomorrow.
London, Nov. 10.��� The tale of
wrecks due to the recent gale is not
yet complete. It bus been ascertained
that as many as four more vessels
foundered at the mouth of tho Tync
during the storm on Wednesday night
with all hands, according to the evidence of tbo coast guards, and the
wreckage washed up. It is feared
also that a small steamer from Ayr to

Paris. Nov. IB.���La Liberto today
asserts tbat ?,000,000 francs worth of
deteriorated American tinned food
have been discovered among the military store at Verdun. (len. Andre,
the minister of war, has ordered all
tinned food among the army stores
whether French or American, to be
sold, on the ground that it would be
better to have no store at all than to
depend upon canned provision which
would be found to be bad at the outbreak of war.

Mlddleburg, Cape Colony, Oct. ,15.���
(Friday)-Ono hundred and eighty
mounted troops, composed largely of
Dutchmen, with their arms and horses
surrendered to Sniutz commando

London, Nov. 18, ��� A despatch from
Lord Kitchener, dated from Pretoria
today says that a strong patrol of

officers and nine men   were wounded
London, Nov. In.���Two of Lord
Kitchener's monthly reviews dated
August 8 and September 8, were pnb-
lishetd in the Gazette this afternoon.
They are chiefly summaries of wide,
sweeping movements throughout all
pans of the disputed territory with
the results, casualties and prisoners
captured, as previously reported. An
astonishing number of horses were
captured, those in August alone num-
being 13,570. About 20 per cent of
these are fit for remounts, and others
are brood mares and foals. Though
auuiitting the disappointing results of
some of the operations,Lord Kitchener
comments on them as follows: So
long as this rate of progress can be
maintained, there can be little doubt
of its ultimate effect on the enemy to
whom no other form of agreement
seems to appeal. The reports further
say that tbe system of chains of blockhouses at intervals of a mile and also
along the railways was being extended. Lord Kitchener says: The influence of the Ecer leaders and their
organized system of intimidation still
kept in tbe field a large number of
burghers who, if left to themselves,
would be ready to surrender. The
writer favorably mentions several
hundred officers, non-commissioned
officers, and men.

Victoria, Nov 16.���During the
absence of Ceo. McL. Drown and Jos.
Martin from the capital, the premier
is getting restive and manifesting a
disposition to fill up bis cabinet although he denies that the lieutenant-
governor has directed bim to do so.
Yesterday overtures were made to
some public men In the city of the
opposing political complexion with a
view to filling up the vacancies.
These were Col. Prior and R. L.
Diury, tho defeated Liberal candidate
in last Dominion general elections.
Tne latter wns offered the post of
provincial secretary. Although be
declines to discuss the mailer, Prior,
it is understood told, Dunsmuir in reply to his represents ions that it was
impossible for one of the government's supporters to cHrry the city.
It is believed here, and with good
grounds, that Col. Prior is anxious to
take over the provincial premiership,
although be knows that he could   not
[.elected as a supporter of the Dins-
miair government, even if so disposed.
II is even stated that the suggestion
was made to Dunsmuir that he drop
out, nominating Col. Prior to the
lieutenant-governnr, but Dunsmuir
wouldn't listen to the proposition.
Prior agrees that in the evebt?0f forming the cabinet, to make it a nonpartisan one and thus relieved of the
Dunsmuir incubus be believes there is
little djubt but that the new cabinet
could carry the oity. The examination
of Prior and Earle under the election
petition is proceeding today before
tne registrar, preliminary to the trial
which is sot for November 2!lth.

Vanoouver, Nov.15.���Word has been
received here from Atlin that the
Sunrise Hydraulic company while
engaged in cutting the bed rock on a
claim, Btruck some marvelously rich
quart, with gold sticking out in little
specks all over it. The find, of
course, has caused a great deal of
excitement, but the company arc very
reticent as to the possibilities of tne
find. They say that until they have
further proved the claim tbey will
give no detailed information beyond
the fact tbat they have been packing
ore to the old Featherstone mills at
great expense, and it has averaged on
the plates $180 to the ton. As tbe
mill is not effectively recovering the
gold, this only represents about one-
tifth of the gold iu the quart, as has
been ascertained by a careful assay of
the tailings. The vein can be traced
for one mile but little is known ��� s to
the extent of the marvelously rich
ore. Rumors are rife as ta the
property. One report is to the effect
that tho ore runs from $1,0011 to $5,00(1
a ton. It is nt least true, as the company admits it, that the walls assay
$iit) to the ton. The Sunrise company
has not been able to work their
hydraulic claim since the government
ordered them to discontinue using
water through their 12 mile ditch,
and it was while prospecting that the
quartz was struck.

The resignation of Bernard Macdonald from tho poet cf general manager
was ezpeeted in London, as a logical
outcome of the situation. Mr. Macdonald had for many years been the
close friend of Whitaker Wright.
When they were young men they
worked together in Colorado and have
kept up their friendship over since.
It was on Mr. Macdonald's report tbat
Mr. Wright consented to the purchase
of the Le Roi for about $3,500,000.
It was Mr. Wright who named Mr.
Macdonald for general manager of the
Le Roi and the other British Ameir-a
Corporation properties in the Rossland
camp. It is alleged that Henry
Uratnobei some time since sought Mr.
Miieiliinnld and offered him a large
sum of money to operate the Le Roi
mine so that it would not pay, to
the end that the stock might be beared
in London. It is further aleged that
Mr. Hratnober was acting in the 111 ���
terests of the snydicate which has
since secured control of the Le Roi.
Mr. Macdonad very promptly and
most properly informed Mr. Wiight of
the alleged attempt at bribery. Afterwards the syndicatce which is behind
Mr. Bratnobcr secured the control and
as it is not in love with Mr. Wright
or any of his friends it was a logical
outcome of the situation that Mr.
Macdona?d would ultimately be removed from the place of manager of
the Le Rio and a man who is
friendly to the syndicate's interests
installed in the place. This, we believe, is the real reason for the resignation of Mr. Macdonald. No charges
could successfully be made against his
competency, as he is one of the best
of mine managers. It is true that he
is inclined to be somwebat belligerent, which is evidenced by his trouble
with the unions at Northport and at
Rossland, but this was not the cause
of his resignation.
That the charge which Mr. Macdonald made against Mr. Hratnober had
considerable to do with his resignation is borne out by the following
which is taken from the Colonial
(ioldfields (lazette of London, of tbe
Issue of November 2nd :
"No surprise will be caused by the
announcement that Mr. Bernard Macdonald has resigned his post as general manager of the Le Roi mine. We
have pointed out more than once thut
if the directors of the Le Roi company
declined to take cognisance of the
very grave chaiges made by Mr. Macdonald against Mr. Henry Bratnobcr
no course but resignation was open
to the general manager of the mine.
That course has now been taken, and
Mr. Freuhevillo cables from Rossland
that he has succeeded in appointing a
trustworthy manager in Mr. Macdon-
ald's place. The manager of the
Northport Smelting works has also
resigned. With regain to Mr. Macdonald' s resignation it is to be hoped
that shareholders will be furnished
with a full statement of the reasons
which induced the late general man-
nger to sever hiB connection with the
company. Admittedly Mr. Macdonald
was an able mining man, and developed the great Lo Rot mine both
vigorously and scientifically. In
other respects his resignation is by
some considered unfortunate, as he
represented the Bank of Montreal,
which institution was always willing
tn advance money against ore shipments.
ing miners of this province, for at
least a psrt of the product of Slocan
and East Kootenay. This may be
taken with a grain uf salt as it is
probably made for the purpose of
forcing the mine owners of the Coucr
d'Alene aud other lead producing
sections to sign the proposed five
years' contracts. There is however, a
bare possibility that out of the disagreement which has arisen there
may come some little advantage *.o the
silver lead miners of   Slocan, Lardeau
and East Kootenay.
In the meantime it in Htated that
the prospects of the erection of the
lead refinery here are much blighter
than they were a few weeks since.
The refinery would lie of mine benefit
to the silver-lead producers than even
to havo tlic lead trust come in and
purchase our ores. The rctincry would
at once make lead for home consumption and for export to foreign markets. It would render the illver-lead
miners Independent nt the lead trust.
Then if the trust wanted lead from
llritish Columbia the would have to
pay for it and at the figures ruling
here aud not at such a price as they
might be disposed to offer for it.
Every effort should, therefore, be
made to forward the erection of the
factory as it will make the British
Columbia lead producers entirely independent of the lead trust.
There is a hopeful tone to the address of President Olonston of the
Canadian Bankes' association delivered at the annul meeting held in Montreal on Thursday. His review of the
business situation was optimistic as
he declared that every standard of increasing commercial prosperity indicated that business wan goon and that
he thuug'nt it would continue so for
somo tine to come. The immense
wheat crop of Manitoba, the increasing yield of tho mines, the growth of
the manfactunng industries, the
growing Oriental trade and ether
causes have brought universal prosperity to Canada and it is reflected in
the speech of President Clouston.
Hankers keep in closer touch with
every interest than any other class
and in their roviews of business conditions tbey are prone to be pessimistic, but Mr. Clouston finds conditions
to be such as to warrant him in taking an optimistic view of affairs.
There is one fly in the bankers'
ointment, however, nnd Oeneral Manager Farewell of the Eastern Townships bank, gave voioe to the grievance. It seems that the banks have
an agreement that not more than 3
percent t-hall be paid for interest on
deposits. Some of the bankers as an
inducement to secure deposits have
been paying the interest half yearly
whicb brought the interest up to
more than 3 per cent. The matter of
disciplining the offending bankers
was referred to a committee which
will, doubtless, ban) them over the
coals for their offcndings.
A disagreement bus arisen between
the lead miners of the United States
nnd the American Smelting ,fc Refining company, commonly known aa tho
lead trust. The contrails expire on
January 1st and the trust desires a
renewal fnr a term ol live years. The
mire owners do not like tho terms
held out to them nnd they may refuse
to sign the Contracts and lt is wilhin
the range of possibilities that they
may form a combine and smelt their
own ores. The lead trust, however,
is making threats of resuming business relations with tbe   lead   produc-
The completion of the railroad connecting the coasts of Russia marks an
important era in the progress of that
nation. It will be to Russia what the
completion of the Canadian _I'aoific
was to Canada, or the first transcontinental line, the Central Pacific and
Union Pacific and connecting lines
was to the United States. In both
Canada and the United States the
completion of the transcontinental
highways wcro followed by marked
material development, which is still
being felt, These roads brought immense areas of virgin country into
use and prosperous cities and eommvr-
nities were built up along them. The
same results will follow in Russia
along its transcontinental line. This
outlet which the Russians now have
on the Pacific, too,,cannot fail to
have a great effect on the commerce
of the I'aci.io and llritish Columba is
in a position to secure a considerable
share of this. There are many articles of Canadian growth and make
that the Russians will want and tney
have products which are needed here.
The outlook, therefore is that an important trade can be built uo between
the two countries. Mr. Whyte of the
Canadian I'acilio railway visited
Siberia recently for tho purpose of
asevtuining tho possibilitiess in the
way of trado between Canada and
Siberia and the report was so favorable that it was nnnouned that the
company intended to put on a line of
steamers, to ply between British
Columbia and Sibeiia.

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cure in all Cases.
There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
oaees.   It onres when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. I cannot
tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, oliained
with putrid aore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
thia dreadful and tormenting disense, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial aoted like a
charm.    Send ine a full size bottle.
Rev, Dr. Morris Wcchsler,
Rabbi of thn Cong. Bnai Israel,
Nkw Yokk, Jan, 3,1901
Dr. Taft Bros. Medicine Co.,
Gentlemen: Your Asthmalene is an
excellent remedy for Asthma and Hay
Fever, and its composition alleviates all
troubles which combine with Asthma.
Its success is astonishing and wonderful.
After having it carefully analyzed, we can Btate that Aethmalene contains
no opium, morphine, chloroform or ether.    Very truly yours,
Avon Springs, N. Y, Feb, 1, 1901.
Drs. Taft Bros. Mumcm* Co.
Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of yonr Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afflcted with spasmodic asthma for th<* past 12 yenrs. Having exhausted
my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to Bee your sign upon your
windows on 180 tli street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Asthmaleu��.
.My wife commonced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflioted with thiB distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D. PHELPS, M. D.
Db. Taft T!iioh, Medicine Co, Feb. 5,1901.
Gentlemen: I wns troubled with Asthma for 22 yenrs. I have tried numerous remedies, bnt they hnve all failed. I ran across your advertisement and
sturteil with a trial bottle. I found relief at once. I have since purchased your
full sized bottle, and I am ever grateful. 1 have a family of four children, and
fur six years wns nnablo to work. I am now in the best of health and am doing
business e^yery day.    This testimony you can make such iisc of as yon see fit.

Extensive additions arc being made
to the plant of Ihe Crow's Nest Coal
company at fernie. Last year an air
compressor was put in capable of
operating ten conl cutting machines,
ami ordors have been placed for three
others of equal capacity. One of these
is on tho way out and the two others
are building at Montrea'. Eaoh of
theso machines is capable of compressing 1,4(111 cubic feet of air per minute
anil when completed the incohanical
capacity of the mines will be folly
three times what it is now. Besides
the compressors the oompany is putting in two 40 11. p. engines and two
75 h. p. hoisting engines. All this
new plant is being supplied by the
James Cooper Manufacturing company, of Montreal, and will be installed by tho New Year.
Editor Miner,���There aro some
matters upon which I would like to
lie enlightened before I feel that I am
competent to nasi an intelligent vote
upon the by-law now before the elec
tors, lt Is, of course, intended that
eventually tbo oily will be in position
to furnish electric power to those who
desire it to operate inaiiiiirery with.
Now, if I purchase a motor of the
design suit utile to he used with the
power supplied from the West Kootenay Power company Is that motor
going to be adapted for the use with
power supplied by the city when it is
ready ti furnish power? Will a new
converter bo needed, or will alternations be required on the one that
would now have to nu put in before it
will work setiafaotorily? The city, as
I nnderstiiiul it, has nn alternating
system of distribution of energy,
while that of the power compauy is
tbo three-phase system.
Thon again, the greater part of the
incandescent lumps that have been
kept in stock by the city are constructed for a current of 101 volts,
while the power now being supplied
for the oireuit connected with the
Power compnny is delivered nt a voltage of 11(1. In consequence the lights
are a little stronger than the standard
but the lumps burn out sooner.
It is most likely chat should the
city instill a plant at a distance from
the city of ten or morn miles thai the
thrce-plinse system would be used,
and then again, do all three phase
machines produce the same current?
I would like to bave these matters
clear In my mind before voting in
favor of the by law and I would like
to bnve a clear enunciation of the intention of tile oity ns to its future intentions as to the kind and extent of
the betterments it will make.

has the following to
say of the Athabasca: A special meeting of the shareholders in the Athabasca Hold Mining oompany was held
on Tuesday to disouss with the shareholders' committee which was appointed at a general meeting of the
company in August last, the best steps
to be taken to conserve their interacts.
After the variouB points at issue had
been clearly set forth by the chairman
of Iho committee, and thoroughly
discussed, it was decided that tbe
Canadian shareholders should be invited to co-opcrnto with their English
confides in agreeing to an assessment
of 4s. per share, by which means
suflicicnt capital would be raised, not
only to pay off all the present indebtedness of the company, but also to
prnviilo the requisite funds to oan-
tinue the working of its properties,
railing such eo-operation from Canada, it is probable that the Engislh
sluirehnlders will assent to tho assessment of 4b. per share, which would
enable them to free the company from
its present indebtedness, and to retain
the properties until the iwlning outlook improves.
