Scientific Papers Read on the Medical
Treatment of His Caso.
Now York, Oct. 15.���Physicians and
surgeons from all parts of the elate
aud some medical exports from othor
parts of the conntry gathered today
foi the semi-annnal meeting of the
Medical society of the Stato of New
York, which was oponed in the New
York academy, when tho morning
ssossion began at 10,80 o'oloek, with
the president of the society iu the
ohnir. Among the first papors read
was one of the Otliolal Relations of,
the Medical Profession to Private
Charitable Institution, by Enrich V.
Stoffnrd, of Rochester, commissioner
of charities.
The physioians and surgeons who
attended President McKinley through
the closing days of his life presonted
a lengthy report covering the medical
and surgical history of the murdered
statesman. It was signed by Drs.
Matthew 1). Maun, Herman, Mynter,
Eugene Wasdin, Charles Q. Stockton,
P. M. Rixey, Rosewell Park, aud
Chnrlos McBurney, and was read by
Dr. Mann.
Dr. Mann did not mention thc operation, omitting that altogether. He
described the president's sypmtomsand
teatment from day to day, going into
the fullest details. In speaking of
bulletins Issued, Dr. Mann said tbat
only une of them was absolutely tiuc.
He told of tbe progress of the patient
till the fatal turn of the seventh day.
Dr. Mann said that there was abno-
lutely no bacteriological infection.
Continuing he said : If you ask me
what caused the president's death, I
could not tell you. 1 doubt if that
will evor be discovered. Amongst oon-
tiibuting caaees, however, were the
piesidcnt's nge, his lack of exercise
aud his natutnlly weak heart which
made his pulse high. Dr. Mann was
asked by one of the listening medical
men why thc X-ray was not applied
so that the missing bullet might be
located. Dr. Manu replied that there
was nothing in the condition to show
that the bullet was doing any harm
nnd he said thnt if the X-ray had
been used it would only buvo been to
satisfy tho omiosity of the physicians
and the excitement ntteuding the operation wonld have been harmful to the
patient Ho the doctors refrained fiom
using the X-ray apparatus. Dr. Maun
went on to say tbat ut no time whatever had there boon the slightest disagreement among the physicians. He
snid he had never known such complete harmony among the physicians
iu ottendanee on a s'nglo patient.
Wlien Dr. Maun "US introduced the
reporters were asked to withdiaw.
It wns explained that there had been
an agreement between thc various
physicians who attended thc president
that any utterances on tbe subject of
his ease should be given drst to tho
modicul papers of tbe country.

London, Oet. 15.���The United States
government will insist that Tuikuy
immediately make good any deOoit in
thc subscriptions for tbo ransom of
Miss Stone, says thc Constantinople
correspondent of the Daily Telegraph,
and also refund the full amount subset ibed. It is supposed that the
brigands who captured Mis? Stone
have withdrawn into the interior of
Macedonia in the direction of
Nevkropkof, says a despatch to the
Daily Telegraph from Sofia. Former
membuis of the Macedonian committee, who wero arrested on suspicion
of complicity, donied befoie a magistrate any knowledge of the affair.
The belief is growing here, snys a
despatch to the Standard, from Constantinople, that the Bulgarian and
not the Turkish government is responsible for the retention of Miss Stone,
whose capture was committed witb
the connivance of Macedonian agitators, if not with that of hijr 1���
authorities. The attitude of t..t
latter towaids the brigands is most
suspicious and very different from
wbat it was during tbe time of tho
Stamboul affair.

Victoria,Oct. 15,���Mr. W. Rockhill,
the commissioner who represents!
tho United States in the negotiations
between the allies and China, arrived
bv the Empress of Japan, on hiB way
to Washington with a copy of the
protocol between China and the
powers, which was recently signed by
tbe representatives of various nations
interested. Ilo will proceed direct to
Washington by tho C. P. R.
Affairs in China have resumed their
uonnal state, tho commissioner said
in an interview, and no further
outbreaks were expected. The so-
cnlied insurrections in Shan Su and
Manchuria he snid were simply local
uprisings whioh had been very muoh
exaggerated. Three hundred Chinese
troops entered Pekin on September
17, aud tbe keys ol the gates were
handed over to Prince Chang with
elaborate and brilliant -ceremonies.
All the troops were withdrawn with
the exception of the Legation guards
and guards at the railway stations.
Since the Tien Tsin affair there had
been no trouble over the ruilway from
the coast to Pekin which is controlled
by thc British, in fact the commercial
interests seem to be taking charge of
countiy and a commission was being
orgai.iKc. lo conduct commercial nego*
tiatio'is with China. This commission will revise tho treaties and
arrangements for the opening of more
ports The commissioner is of
opinion that '.lie woik of the commission will briu;' nbuut a much better
state of afl'aiis. Tbo British and
Chinese {members of the commission
have already been appointed and the
other nations hail been asked to name
their representatives. lieforo Mr.
Rockhill loft Pcliin the Chinese troops
bad commenced to police the city, the
legation concessions had been greatly
increased and the British legation is
being built in the form of a fort with
a mont and guns mounted. The British had obtained tho largest extent of
land but the Germans and Russians
had also increased their holdings considerably. Mr. Rockhill suid he expected to hear very shoitly of the
return of the court   to Pekin.
The Russians are having considerable difficulty on tho China-Manchuria
railway on account of the floods.
They do not allow officers of other
nations into their country but have
no objections to civilians travelling
through. Mr. Rockhill does not look
for a boom when China is again
settled but says the trade will be
News was received by the Empress
of Japan of further rebellions in

September 2nth between the Impeiinl
Chinese force under General Sen and

Mnny letters have been written to
the North China Daily News telling
of the risings in the vicinity but giving few details. The North China

that the return of the court to Pekin

Assize Court, City of Nelson, Oct.
15th, 1001.
Thc grand jury summoned for this
assize desire to piesent that the public
feeling of Nelson and the surrounding
district is strongly in favor of tht
erection of a now and suitable court
house at Nolson and that thoy believe
this feeling is snared by both the
Bench and Bar. 'Ihey do so for the
reasons that the present court bouse is
entirely unsuitable at the piesent day
for the purpose for which it was
erected, that it is wanting in size, in
proper arrangement, io accommodations and acoustic properties, that it
is extremely drafty and that many
severe colds bave been contracted by
those forced to attend.
The grand jury trust that this presentment may be forwarded to the
pioper authoiitios with the approval
and support of the Honorable tho
Judge of Assize.
In conclusion the grand jiuy desire
to congratulate the Hon. Mr. Justice
Irving upon the few and unimportant
criminal cases which have come before him this assize und the evidence
thus afforded of the maintenance of
law and order throughout this large
mining community.
His Lordship said that he would
gladly forward the presentment to the
proper officers. He could hear testimony to the inadequacy of the court
house. It was certainly a matter fur
congratulation that the number of
cases of serious orime was so small.
The grand jury was then discharged
unless thoy should be summoned by
telephone, and all the petit jury exoept those on the case under.lrial were

London, Oct. It;.���According to despatches published today by the Daily
Mail, a crisis is immlnont iii Newfoundland unless the British government pays moro attention to the demands of the colony than has hitherto
been the ease. A loug special from
St. John's says: "Sinco Mr, Bond,thi
Newfoundland premier, left England

answeied the dispatch from tlio Newfoundland government sent Ave*
mouths ago, urging the Imperial
authorities to persuade Sir Wilrld
Laurier, the Dominion premier, to
agree to a latificatiou of tho Bond-
Blaine convention"
The despatch gives the dotails of
the recent Bond-Lnurier conference
and asserts thut the Dominion premier
based his refusal to agree to ratification on the ground that the Joint High
Commision had discussed the matter
and that all being well, thc commission would discuss it again.

Dr. ilaanel bas been appointed
sun rinteudent of mines for the
Dominion of Canada. Be has a
splendid reputation as geologist and
mineralogist nnd is noted for his
business ability and energy. The
mineral Induetry of the Iiommion hAs
grown lo such importance that the
Federal authorities are doing all they
can to co-operate with the provinces
to fuither their development. With
this cntl in view a mines branch ha,
hcen established under the department
of tbe interior and this bureau is to
be under the direction of Dr. Ilaanel.
One proposed innovation is the publication quarterly of exact and accurate
information of the latest news relating to mines and mining. This wiil
be a step in tlie right direction.
The work of lhe Dominion geologist
and his staff have been of great
benefit. A recent incident r.veals
this. Last year a geological aod
topographical corps visited the Boundary country and made surveys ol the
country adiaceut to the Kettle river
and its branches and lhe report published after the corps bad compiled its
notes was to the effect that the section on one of the forkB of tho river
indicated the prcsonce of coal. This
hint wns taken by a shrewd prospector
who explored the region and the result was that he found coul and since
then over :i(),nil() aores of coal lana has
been taken up in that section by the
fortunate prospector, his friends aud
others. Analyses of the coal show it
to be of excellent quality and the
(Iranliy Company has purchased a
large area of the land taken up find
intends to develop some of   the scums.
Tbe geological maps so far prepared
hy the geological department are of
great benefit to both the miner and
tne prospector, an they serve as a
guide to what sort of metals mny be
found in certain formations and of
tbeir totul absence in others. They
arc u&cfjl lo ihose ill searob of cer-
lain minerals ns they actually show
where they may be found uud where
they may not bo, and in this way
prevent seeking for lodes iu soctlons
where there i* no possibility of liuding

a time the doctors decided that thc
only possibility of lelieving him was
to take the eye out. An operation
was accordingly performed, the man
being placed nnder chloroform foi
the purpose. Imagine his annoyance
on discovering, whon he came to, that
the doctors had removed his left eye,
whereas the pain was in tbe right!
Natuialiy his pain was not relieved
by the operation. Thc mun declared
that he would lather be blind for life
than endure it, and evcutully be wos
again placed under chloroform and
the second eye removed. Strange to
say the pain continued as before, and
even grew worse. It then occurred to
somebody that the paiu conld not

Further examination disclosed an
abscess et the root of one of his teeth.
A third operation was more sucoess-
ful The tooth was extracted, and thc
man at once recovered.
There have been some big mining
consolidations In the past such as the
assembling of the Mi:,ei-Graves syndicate smelter and several large mining
properties ownnd by ns many companies under the (Iran by Consolidated
Mining & Smelting compuny with a
capitalization of 815,ooo,Ooo, but one
is unrer consideration nt Spokane
which completely eclipses this. This
company wiBhns to put ull the 1,001
claims on Palmer mountain, Wash.,
into one vast corporation with a ca-oi-
tal uf (30,000,000 tn he called the
Palmer Mountain Mines Consolidated.
The plans are on a vast scale. It is
proposed     to     Continue    the   I'nimer
Mountain tunnel, which has already
oetn driven for n mile, nine and a
half miles further, which will make
ils total length ten and a half miles.
This will make it the longest mining
tunnel in the contirent. in order to
put the finanoes of the eompnuy on u
good basis it is proposed to place 810, ���
000,000 in guaranteed gold bonds,
bearing 5 per cent, interest, on the
London mnrket. It is ccitainly a
gigantic mining scheme and thi re Is
considerable prospect of carrying it
out to a successful issue.

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Ide;i Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases tlie heating capacity of the stove, anil in connection with the de.flector^ring forces the
heat to the floor. The base is hot, the floor being warmer than with a
base burner.
The Hot Wait Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct at the
rear of the fire pot, the healed air being discharged in a circle at the top
of Are pot, over fire, thus consuming all the gases and pro'lucts 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 ofthe sti ve wilh nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the back takes the cold air from
the floor and ejects it .ntensely 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 remarkable saving of
fuel over any other stove on the market. The stova will hold fire from
24 to 48 hours without attention.
