Tim llutiiil Orocors' association held
a meeting at tho Miners' Union hall
last evening nt which the following
roomliors of their association wore

OI tlio wliolesulo grocers who had
licon Invited to moot them to discuss
tin* issues on which tbe disputo had
arisen between the two hranches of
traile. I'. Chapman, of A. MacDonsId
*. Co.l 11. J. Hamilton, of John Chol-
ditch & Co. ; It. Itobortson, of J. Y.
(Irilliii Sc Co., and L. M. Hyde, of
Hyde .1- Tit-worth, were present.
Tlio discussion, which lasted from
8 o'clock lill nearly 12 was temperate
in language, and a good muny pointH
Hint liud iiuon in dispute were cleared
up, although us far as the main
Usui's go it will not hi* known till
tin; nest meeting what real progress
Tins Hindu.
The retailers' definition of whal
tl.oy consider their legitimate fields of
luili' wns read hy the secretary. It
v.nn ns follows:
Tin* supplying of all corporations,
ooiitiaclors, mines, largo or small
boatfUng houses, hotels,sawmills; and
logging camps, families, nnd every
and nil Individuals who uro not en-
gagod in retailing morobnnd.se as
their chief business.
A iliilinitinn of what they eonside-ed
n wholesaler should be was embodied
in a letter which was read from a
lading wholesale firm in Montteul,
in whicli be was defined ss "h merchant that does not sell tn tbo consumers or in other words firms that
will only sell to thc trudr."
Shortly ufter the meeting oponed a
delegation in rived fiom thc Board of
Trails, consisting of Messrs. J. M
bay, A I!. Sherwood and Thoburn
Allan, who read an addio-s to the
association ashing thorn to withdraw
the thinl clause in tho eirctilnr letter
tliey hnd sent to the retail trade
throughout the Kootenays, as it was
considered hy the board as a direct
Wow lo tbo city's interests. The
delegation weio informed that the
association would convey an answer
to thmn nftor the meeting had been
hold, upon which thoy withdrew.
In regard to thc request of tho
Board of Tnido, Mr, McPherson sold
"at it wns the lust thought of the
����soel��tlon to stillie a blow at the

���-sadness they i ad received i���.m
Boine of the Nelson tetailers present,
thu latter Umountb lining only �� few
dollars a month. In teply to this a
I series of Instances were quoted by
retnileis in wbieli Mnodonuld & Co.
bad sold goods to cousumcis and nlso
to mi*;os und contractors, as nlso had
the othor Nelson wholesale firms.
Mi*. Chapman nnd Mr. Hobertson
made explanation uf these, some of
the explanations being received as
satisfactory by the retailers and others
not. Tho wholesalers claimed that
nowhere was the line drawn strictly
between retailer anil wholosaler and
that it was prnoticallv impossible to
do so, and tnat all the wholesaler
could do was lo observe the spirit of
fairness toward the retailors.
Mr. 0. Hell said that the wholesalers vould find thoin ready to meet
them half way in the matter. If the
wholesalers would agree to their definitions they would in return give
thei] trndc to tbem, nnd what trade
the wholesalers lest would be moro
than made up in tbo bulk of trade
they woulil get, wbieli now tbey prac-
ticilly got none of. Kevurul of tho
othor retaileis followed this up with
similar speeches but said if they oould
not got the treatment they ashed from
the Nelson wholesale grocers tbey
would put in a wholesalo establishment thomselves.
Mr.Robertson said that ns the clause
"djod regarding tho difference that
should bo between tlie two brunches
be could not soe his wuy towards accepting it. They frequently sold contractors seven nnd eight carloads of
supidies at a tim'', and he did not sec
whnt good it woulil do the retailers
lor the wholesalers to refuso this
tiudo as it would only go to the coast
or eastern wholesalers,
Mr. Bell said that in regard to that
if the two associations could work
amicably together any matter liliu
that could he arranged easily. The
retailers did not want nny trade to go
out of the city but tbey wanted the
tmde of a number of the mince to
wbich at present the wholesalers were
cater ing-.
Mr. Hamilton said that at the last
meeting of the Mine Owners' Association ho hud been informed by a lending member, ttint the association hnd
deckled to doai only with the wholesalers, ana if tbe wholesalers refused
tu lill tbeir orders tbey would send
tbem out of the eity.
Muro warm discussion followed over
this, but the meeting linully seemed
to think thnt it would bo better for
tbo wholesalers to hnve nn opportunity to tliink over the position laid
down by them, und,as it would bo impossible for them to meet aguiu for a
couple of weeks at least, tho date of
the next mot ting was set ior tho evening of Thursday, November 7.

Ottawa's Disapproval Shears Provincial I'isb Commissioner of Power.
Victoria, Oct, 17. ��� Friction bus
arisen between the Federal and Prn-
Ivuolfil governments over the appointment by the latter of J. P. Ilabooek of
California, as rtshorios in spiel or, [or
the provimo. The federal govern**
ment oontrols the sob flsherlrs which
includes the salmon in the rivors but
the provinces havo been disputing
this, Recently the salmon canners
complained Mint the federal government wus not paying sufficient attention to the piotection and propngntion
of salmon, the commissioners seldom
visiting the province, although the
B. C. tlshehrits contribute nn immense
revenue to tho federal government.
The provincial authorities wero enticed to appoint Mr. liabcook to investigate I.lie fisheries with a view to
establishing hatoherles. As soon as
this became known n protest was sent
from Ottawa. Aspoeinl to tlio Colon'
ist from Ottnwu on the i>trillion says:
'Tho feilontl authorities do not look
with favor upon tho appointment of
Mr. Habcuok as fishery commissioner

ries department bore asking in olfcet
for tbo sanction of tho Ottnwu authorities to Mr. Bnbcock's appointment,
but n diseouinging cominunicnfion

"The feeling seems to prevail here
that Mr. Hiibcock if allowed aoces.'i to

Operations  Performed With
What the Autopsy  Disclosed.
New Yoik, Oot 17.���The New
York Medical Journal for Suturday,
October 19th wllR contain the full
official report of the surgeons wbo
aliunde! thc late President William
McKinley, - in Buffalo. The report
contains upwards of 15,000 words and
constitutes tho official record of the
ease. This report is signed by Doctors
P. M. Rixey, Matthew D, Mann, Her-
mnn Mynter, Ronwell Park, Engeue
Wasdin, Cbns. Mc Hurney, and Charles
O.Stockton,as uicmbeis of the medical
staff attending tho lute president.
The leport of the autopuy is signed
by Dr. Harvey R. Onylord, pathologist, while the report on the bacteriological examination bears the (denature of Dr. Herman O. Mstisiu-,-ui',
bacteriologist to the New Yprk state
pathological laboratory.
Tbe tepnrt describes in detail the
events immediately following the
shooting which are already familiar
to tbe public. Then follows a description of the operation in nil its technical mlnutine. The utmost care was
used to prevent the infection of the
nbnotniiial cavity and followed by the
most n; proved modern methods of
surgical cleanliness. Tbe wounds in
thc stomach were sutured with silk
using double rows of etitches,ari'unged
so that the greatest possible seourity
wus given. The application of these
stitches was accompanied by great
difficulty, especially the suturing of
an opening in the posterior wall of
the stomach. The chief tiouble was
the dopth of the abdom inul cavity,
the lack of instruments to draw the
edges of the wound spnrt during the
Sowing nnd the lack of good light.
In his comment ou tbo report of the
operation Dr. Mann particularly eim
pliuiiiii the disadvantages under which
he labored when suturing the wounds
in the stomaali, with the failing light
of a September afternoon. Later on
in tbe operation a movable electric
light was used with advantage,
Spunking Of thc smirch for the bullet
during tho operation the report says:
The operation on the stomuoh now
being linished, Dr. Mann introduced
bis arm so as to palpitate carefully
ull the deep stiuctures behind thu
stomach. No trace of tho bullet or
tiuck of tbo bnllet could be found. As
the introduction of the hand in this
way seemed to havo a bad influence
on thc president's pulse, prolonged
sonrch for further injury done by tho
bullet or for the bullet itself was
desisted from. Further search might
hnve ouused Ihe denth of the patient
upon the operating table. At tbe
close of the operation the suigeons
present unanimously assured Dr.
Msnn in answer to his questions that
they wcic pei lent l.v satisfied that
everything that wns possible hnd
been dune and that thoy had uu
further suggestions to make. It wus
also decided not to Introduce any
gauze or tubus into tho ubduuit-n for
drainage as this was not nceos**ary
but tbe wound wns not sewed up so
tightly tbat no drainage could lake
plaee naturally.
The report then contains the history
of tbe caso after tho operation. The
presenting of tho illntss is given day
by day and thc bulletins ns given out
by tba attending pbysieluns arc Incorporated In the report. On iho fifth
day, September loth, look place tho
much discussed romovul of stitches
from the wound in the abdominal
wall. The report snys: In the evening thc dressings were examined snd
as there was considerable staining
from tho dioharges it wus thought
best to remove four stitches and to
separate thc edges of the wound. A
little slough was observed near tbe
bullet, covonng n space nearly an
inch wide the thickness of the llnps.
Thc suppuration seemed to extend
down to the inns :le.
Tbe remainder of the wound looked
healthy und it was thought that the
infection wss due to the bullet or lo a
piece of clothing which had been
carried into the wound at the timo of
the shooting. The wound was then
diessed, and on the following day the
patient's condition wns vory much
improved. Thc findings st the
autopsy, as well as the developments
of tbo caso during the last duys, exclude all* possibility of absolute injury
to the stomach by premature giving
of solid food as was alleged at the
time when nnlavorahio symtoms came
on after change to solid diet. On the
fifth nay tho president sipped hot
water, on the sixth he had beef juice,
the first food taken by the mouth
since tbe operation. In the meantime nutritive enemas weie continued
but were not well retained. At H.'M
on the morning of tho seventh day bo
was allowod chickon broth, a very
small piece of toiat and small cup of
coffee. Ho did not care for tho toast
and ate scarcely any of it. The wound
bad in the meanwhile been doing vory
well nud had been dressed daily after
tbe removal of the stitcbes nnd the
sloughing tissue. The president
seemed at his best and a favorable
result was now confidently predicted.
Thero was no sign of blood poisoning
or of inflammation of the peritoneum.
The only alarming symptom was his
rapid pulse, and as the president hail
naturally a rather rapid pulse and as
it had been of fairly good quality
right along, the surgeons did not
attribute very grout irupoitance to
this symptom. On tho seventh day
towards noon, the pulse began to
grow weaker nnd grew rnpinly worse.
Stimuinnls wero given and the food
was discontinued while castor oil and
un enema of ox gall were given to
move the bowels. At midnight there
was some improvement in the pulse
after an injection of salt solution in
the subcutaneous tissues. On the
eighth day the condition of the president was described as very serious as
e did not respond to stimulation.
Siiui ii In n is and injections of salt si'U'-
tion, colTee nun broth were given,
but without muoh effeot. At a
o'clock oxygon waa gives nnd continued for some hours. At CM the
president was restless, nt 10 p. m. he
lost oonsolousness and continued to
sink until he died ut 2.IS a. in., or.
September 14th.
In speaking of tbe criticism that
X-ruys should have been used to
locate the bullet, Dr, Mann says in
the report: Wo wero often asked
why, nfter the operation wo did not
use thc X-rnys to find the bullet. In
the Urst pluce, thero were at no time
any symptom.*) that tho bullet was
doing barm. To have used the X*iay
simply to hnve satisfied our curiosity
would not hnvu bnou warrantable at,
it would have greatly disturbed nnd
annoyed the president and would hnvu
subjected bun also to n ocrtain risk.
Had there been signs of abscess formation then the X-ray could and
would have been Uted
Dr, tiayioid'a report of the autopsy
is lengthy and detailed. Nothing of
Importance was notlotd about the
wound on the chest caused by the first
shot except that the urea of skin
affected was found to be discolored
gieonish yellow und that there was a
hemorrhage iut'> the fat under the
skin In Heath this men. The nbdnuil*
nnl wound showed no evidences ol
necrosis or sloughing, No Inflammation of the peritoneum wus found.
The wound in tlie flout wnll of thc
stomnoh was found "held intact by
silk sutures" bnt tno area of the
stomach wnll wound wus discolored
grayish green and CSllly lorn. The
ureu around the wound on thn pos
terlor wit, I of thu Mtiiiuiieb was iiIho a
dull gray color, but Ibe siHures held
thn wound Intact. Behind the latter
wound there wns n spot of discoloration which Showed Hint the sloughing
process bud gone backwards in lhe
truck of tbe bullet. The ganglionitis
cavity found behind thu slomneh involved the panareai ami the lurtound-
ing loose lifsiies, thu bottom of the
blind pocket being formed by thc
upper cud of the left kidney which
was found to lo laorented ut thnt
point to the extent of about two centimetres. The track of the bullet
was then truosd through gangrene
tissuus in tho fat behind tlie kidney to
tbo niusulos of the tut-k of abdomen,
the diricllon of the bullet, however,
could not bo trncod nny further. The
seniah foi the bullet was rncsl
thorough and painstaking, but In
spite of all efforts II could not be
found aud the autopsy had to be discontinued because the time allowed
to lt by the family of the late president hnd uliondy been ex.i*n,l<i,|. |)f,

locating tbe missing bullet whleh
h���6 net op lo reaction, search for it
"���6 iliscoutinned." Examination of
the heart muscles shows that it was
effected hy fatty degeneration, and in
note places the muscle flh.es showed
���.,��� of dark brown grannies dem-
-tr'ating a diseased condition of the
0Mni_��� muscle. Dr. Oayiord believes
tbat the repair to the stomach wounds
bad been effective and that the gan-
nround thise wounds docs not
have been the result of any
wen detlne.1 oause. He attributes the
Wngrenous condition of the tissues
solely to low vitality of the parts.
Tlie appearance of gangrenouB tissues
shows that tho gangrene took place
shortly belore death. In speaking oi
the causation of the cuvity behind lie
stoiiimli he says that it must be
|atgely attributed to the action of the
mm"iIt* It ,nay have r0l,ulted from
the rotation of a nearly spent ball,
or, fiom the simple eououssion of tho
bullet as it passed into the soft
tissues. Xhe injury to the pancreas
produced a cavity which occuned
during the passing of the ballet because the cuvity was found walled off
by Hiiro in au advanoed stage of
organization. The extensive gangrene of the poncrooH seemed to hove
beon an important factor in the case,
thoogh it had nevor been shown how
muoh of this organ that must be
diseased to cause death. The wound
in the kidney is of no importance
eicept as showing the traok of the
bulict. The diseased oondition of thc
liemt muscles shows why the pulse
was so frequent end why it did uot
respond to stimulation at the eritioal
moment. The repoit of the bacteriologist Is largely what the doctors
call "negative." It concerns rathor
tlie ocsi'iice of germs than their
presence. A culture taken from the
wound during life showed several
varieties of germs but a showing
which is rather expected in such
cases. Thore were proscnt two of the
ouliniiry germB of suppuration, and
ono gas forming germ of unknown
identity. As a rosult of the examination ot various tissues anil fluids
remoi'od post molten! in very small
supplies, Dr. Matzinger concludes thnt
tlio absence of known pathogenic
bactarla, particularly iu tho gungieu-
ous cavity, warrants the conclusion
that bacterial infection was not a
factor in tlio production of the condition found iu the autopsy. A chemical analysis by Dr. Hill of tbe remaining I.nib u and of the contents of
the eurtlldge remaining in the mm
dorer's pistol showed that tliire was
no poisonous iniitt.ir, thUB disposing
ot the story of a poluonol bullet.

The Nelson Operatic Society wen
new laurels last ovening at its concert given at tho opera house. The
society has bitheito conlined its attention to comic opera, bnt last night it
scored an unqualified success In grimfl*
opem. Tho ability of tho members of
the society was tested, too, in two of
the greatest scenes ln opera, to wit,,
Aot IV. of Verdi's **II Trovatore,"
and Act III. of liounod's "Faust."
Those who know anything of the
requirements necessary for successfully producing these two acts fully
understand the test to which the members of the society weie subjected nud
that tbey did more than well will
be substantiated by every meinbor of
the audience, which filled tho bouse
to the doorB. The orchestra was under
the direction of Herr Sleiner and the
orchestration wns one of the features
of the performance. The scenery nud
properties were of tbe period iutemUd
to be icpresonted. The costumes, too,
were suitable and appropriate nnd
added their due proportion to the
success of the entertainment. There
was not a dull nor an uninteresting
number on the progiammo from beginning to enl and the audience
showed a full measure of appreciation
for the efforts of tho artists. The
ditliculties of amateurs producing
such ambitious musical gems aa were
given will be fully appreciated by the
public, but when their efforts, in
some respects, were better than tboee
of many professionals it reveals
they must bave more than ordinary
Tlio first nnmber oa the program
an overture from "II Trovatoro" was
so well rendered as to bring forth a
round of applause. The fourth net
Of''II Trovatoro" came next and it
was given a spirited and artistic rendition. Mrs. Melville Parry was particularly effective as the heart broken
I.eonore, Her vocalisation of the
difficult musis was of a high order.
John Laohore sang the tenor rolo of
Manrico effectively and Signor Hala
was happily cast as Ruiz. Tho chorus
of the prisonors added to the effectiveness of thc ajt. Thin is one of the
most mornful scenes in grand opera
and it wan so well acted and sung
that it drew a salvo of applause.
The orchestra rendered an ovetrure.
Signor Halz's bass solo, "Come Love
With Me,'* with Mrs. Rowley as
accompanist, pleased tbe audience.
Mr. VV. It. Hedley'a rendition of
"Reverie" and tbe "Spanish Danee,"
on the violin showed that he bss a
futnre before him of importance.
Under the witchery of bis bow the
violin seemed to pour forth the melody
in the "Iteverie" that wus full ol
irouriiful sadness,and in the "Spanish
Dunce" It fully refleotod the spirit of
the dnncc of the most mercurial of
people. Mr. lied ley. was so vociferously nppln'ided that he had to
respond to au encore.
Mrs. II. Young's song of "A Dream
of Home" was so pleasing that the
audience insisted on recalling hrr and
she gave the old Scotch ballad "Robin
Adair" and was rewarded with much
llorr F. Hteiner gave Schubert's
"l.ltnnln" nnd u Nocturne by Chopin
on the 'cello, so as to bring out tbe
full beauties ot these splendid oom positions. The deep, stirring str.-iins ol
the 'cello in tne hands of nn artist
like llerr Hlelnei aro most attractive
to the lover of musio and the nndlaacc
loudly applauded the musician ns he
retired from the stage, This Concluded tlie lirst part of the concert.
The second poitioii of the concert
was devoted entirely tu the garden
scene from Oounod's "Faust." This
proved the gem ot the evening's entcr-
tiiliiiiieiit. Mis. Melville Tarry
curried ulT the larger share of the
honors in the role of Marguerite.
In Hie ..pinning wboc] solo, tho jewel
Song, the duets with Faint and in the
quart-Us her voice was heard to great
ad vnr, I nge. Mrs, Barry Scored the
gieatest lyrical success she has yet
made in tbia scene, She seemed to be
dead letter p<r,'cct and followed the
score accurately and tier clear mobile,
sympathetic voice met every requirement of the difficult ro!d of Maigiie-
iit'.'. Ber acting showed, too, thai
she has biiitroclc ability of uo menu
order, ,'olin Lachore sang the rolo of
Faust well and sburcd bo iors with
Alls. Parry, Hn was in good voice
mid in the solus and in Hie ouets witb
Mepblstophales and be is an actor
and vocalist of considerable ability.
Mrs. M. S, Davya made a good
Martha, and aang and ��SMlsd that
character in an sole manner.
The sceneiy was painted specially
tor the occasion by J. Millwnid. The
electrical effects were furnished by
Ewart Bros., A Blngrose. Melville
Parry was stage director and mneb of
tbe nuecees of tha eonosrt la due to
his etlorta.
Mrs. D. B. Murray will bold her
students' recital on the evening of
October the 2'.lnl for pupils in piano
and voice. By reaaon of its fine
acoustic properties the Congregational
church has been secured for tbe purpose of the recital. An excellent
progrnmme will be rendered from the
best coropof-ers. Doors open at 7.:(i)
programme to begin at 8.15 uliaip.
No reserved seats.
It la stated by tlie Spokesman*
Review that it Is highly probable that
fiornard Macdonald will aoon retire
from tbe management of the Lc Roi
mini at Sosslitnd and that Bela Had-
ish will shortly bo relieved of the
posttluu of manager of fia smelter at
Northport. It ia stated that Henry
Brstnobei, who represents the majority intsrest in tba L* Roi, did not
wish to lOtire Mossrs. Macdonald nnd
Radish until tho strike wos partially
settled or nntil the mines were in partial op'*raSio-a, as it was not deserved
to make that much ol a concession to
tho men. Ibe mines are fairly well
started now aud it is maimed by those
on tbe inside that it will uot be long
before Messrs Kadmb and Macdonald
will be suoceeded by other gentlemen.
Tbe men to succeed them have alreacy
been selected.
As a matter of fact the new management of the Le Roi are apposed to
Whitaker Wright and all of his subordinates and it is but natural that
they should seek to put their own
friends in thaj poeitions of trwt and
responeiblity which tbey have in their
keeping. Mr BfMtaober, before be returned to flea Franci soe, eta ted tbat lt
waa aors that likal-f that Mr. Ms*-
doaald would be retired after a short
period. It ia thought tbat the retire
mil ef Mr. Msedonald would result
U a MtlemeiH of tbe labor trouble
in the goaslaod camp, as the antagonism to tim there among tbe union
men Is very etroag.and the.union men
wonld make ooDoeaalons if be were
enly out of the position of manager.
Very     Extraordinary    That    Houae
Should Not Meet Till Marcn.
Hon. Smith Curtis, who was in Nelson yesterday, on being shown the
speoial despatch from Viotoria appear
ing in another co.'umn, said : I see
thoy hove put the date for calling the
house togotbei a month farther ahead
than was thair iutention a week ago.
Aooordiug to the practice of many
years thc legislature always assembled in January or as soon aftei tbe
new year aa possible. It wns held
back laat year for the very good reason of the depntation to Ottawa. Tbe
procedure here announsed shows how
far the government iR prepared to go
in violating at isaet the spirit of tho
constitution. When the bouse woe
prorogued laat wring the promise was
given of an extra session should an
agreement be reached for the con
struotion of the Coost-Kootnoay railway and it was added as a settled certainty that auch an agreement wonld
be reachod. The only thing to prevent the session's being held over is
that it shonld incontrovortibly be
brought to the knowledge of the lieutenant-governor that the government
has lost the confidence ot the house in
which case be wonld be justified in
taking steps to have the legislature
Brown is said to have resigned and
now tho government is going along
with two portfolies vacant.
Asked as to the reason set forth in
tlie dispatch for tho approaching trip
of Hon. J. I). Prentice to England,
Mr. Curtis said : I have nothing to
add to or tako from what 1 said to Tbe
Miner on Mondny last.
"I suffered euob pnin from oornB

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases tie heating capacity of the stove, and in connection with the deflector^ ring forces the
heat to the floor. The base is hot, the floor being warmer than w'lh a
base burner.
The Hot Rlast Attachment takes in thc cold air through a duct at the
rear of thc fire pot, the heated air being discharged in a circle at the top
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 stive with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the back takes the cold air from
the floor and ejects it .ntcnsely heated, through the top .adding greatly
to the heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according to directions'wc 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 reinarkab'e saving of
fuel over any other stove on the market. The slova will hold fire from
24 to 48 hour�� without attention.
