Delay Caused By High
lumbia.
Work on tbe big bridge crossing the
Columbia at Robson has been greatly
delayed by high water. The Dominion Bridge Company bave tneir
agent. Mr. Findlay, on the ground at
present looking after their interests.
The trackmen's strike caused considerable delay in getting the approaches
built at the east side, but the extra
gangs now have the rails laid over
the temporary trestle work, so tbat
the material for the first three spans
can be carried and placed in position.
The two long spans, over deep water,
are necessarily delayed by thc long
continued high water, but it is
thought probnble thut the whole
structure will be ready for use some
time in November.

Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 14.���There
wero victories on both sides of the
great steel strike today but they furnished no direct line on tlie ultimate
result of thc conflict, The strikers
succeeded in finally forcing the tube
workers at McKeesport, probably the
largest individual plant in the United
States Steel Corporation, to close
down. On the other hand the steel
corporation rcoponed thc big Painter
plant ia this city and also resumed
operations with non-union mon at the
Crescent plant of the American Tin
Plate Co., at Cleveland. Two mills
were open at the Paintor plant though
one of them broke down during the
day and according to the statement of
the officials half the milk in thc Cr.s-
oent plant were moving. The forces
at. both the plants namod are to be
increased and the managers claim they
will soon have thorn working  in full.

four miles away.   Tho race   will   not1
be  lesuiled   tomorrow ns both  boats
arc now on their way up tho sound in
I tow, to be on hand for the Lurchuiont
I event on Friday.    When the race  was
I given up there was  nothing to choose

SIGNOR CBISPI'S   FUNERAL.
A Splendid Pageant at Naples Honors
Italy's Great Statesman.
Naples, Aug. 14.���The funeral of
Signor Cr'spi was an imposing event.
Cordons of troopB lined the route
which wus through the principal
Btreets snd presented arms as the funeral oar passed. The car was drawn
by eight blaok horses with sable trappings. The cords of tbe pall were held
by tho mayors of Rome, Naples, Palermo and Siberia, Clcily, Crispi'a
birth place, the vice president of the
chamber of deputies and other state
o-l-ials.
Cleveland, Ohio, Aug. 14.���Fivo
men were burned to death, four were
drowned, three and possibly four, were
suffooated and soveral injured, as the
result of a fire whioh destroyed a temporary waterworks orib, two mileB off
the Cleveland harbor early today.
Twenty-six men obeyed tho order of
the Manager G.C. Vandeusen when the
flames broke out aud took refuge in
the water on floating pieces of wreckage. Four of them lost their hold upon their frail floats and sank beneath
the waves just aB help reuched them.
The crew of the tug J. R. Prank le,
heard tbe fire whistle blow from the
crib and raced to the scene from thc
harbor. She picked up IS of the survivors who had drifted to the west of
the orib on their floats of boards aud
wreckage.
Vandeusen and three of his mon
were hanging in the water from a
two-inoh line suspended from the criD.
Just bs the line was burring away
from the men's hands, a yawl boat
from the barge Wilhelm manned by
two men dashed into thc heat and
smoke that enveloped the crib and
rescued the four mon on this rope at
the risk of the boatmen's lives. The
men picked np in the water were
brought to the oity on the tug
Prankle. They were naked, exhausted, and badly burned. Many of
them were cut by falling timber.
The crib is a total loss. It was a
frame building 200 by 60 feet, the
sides shea'hed with iron. It contained valuable machinery. It is now
a charred shapeless mass of wreckage.
Mayor Johnston expressod great indignation today when he learned that
no boat or life preservers were provided as a safety measure by the contractors at the crib. He declared that
thc oase would receive the closest investigation and those found guilty of
criminal neglect in the mutter would
be prosecuted to the full extent of the
law. Late this afternoon Plnmmer
Jones of Warren, Ohio, an employee
of the tunnel oontraotors and une of a
party of rescuers who descended Into
the shaft to look for the mlsBlng
men, was overoome by gas and expired within a few minutes. His body
lies in tho tunnel 75 feet from the
bottom of the shaft and is covered
with water. The life line attached
to tbe body became fouled and could
not be pulled up. Uavid Kelly,a mem.
ber of the rescuing party, was overoome by gliH and Is in a precarious
condition.
THIEF MAKES   GOOD nAUL.
Quebec, Aug. 14.���A Mr. Donald,
contractor of Now York, with bis sis-
tei and daughter wero passengers on
tho R. St, O. boat which arrived here
this morning. While the party were
at dinner last night, a thief Oroke into their cabin aud stole a jewellery
case containing $1,000 worth of juwel-
lerv.   No clue.
It is said on what is thought to be
good authority thut two months ugo
the C. P. R. took a bond on somo
property immediately east of the
Fairview townsite for the purpose of
securing it for refinery und smelter
purposes. The land belongs to Victoria parties, aud hut a short time before bad been surveyed anil p laced on
the real estate market for sale in lots,
but before any transfers were mado
thu whole property was withdrawn
for the purpose mentioned above.
If the refineiy wore bnUt it was
the Intention of the coinpany at tho
same time, to erect a lead smelter with
a capacity at first of 300 tons a day,
to bo increased considerably later.
The reason that the bond was allowed
to lapse is said to bo because the company could not, despite tho immense
output possiblo from the Slocan and
East Kootenay silver-lead mines, arrange for a certain and sulliciuui supply to keep the smelter and refinery
going steadily and for thnt reason
decided not to go ahead with the matter until the labor situation especially
took on a score definite phase than 1s
at present the case.
That there has been some strong
influonce at work preventing satisfactory arrangements being made is also
hinted at. The opening of the lead
refinery here and tho consequent
greut impetus that would be given to
silver-loud mining throughout tbe
Kootenays would seriously interfere
with the pluiiB of the America lead
trust, whioh is orcditod with boing tho
adverse influence.
Last year the total lead production
of the province was a little over 31,-
000 tons. With a proper market provided it was estimated on reliable
data that In one year the produticu
would have risen to 00,000 tons,and in
two years to 100,000 tons. Thus even,
under favorable circumstances It
would take two yeats to have a sufficient tonnage, and under the unfavorable oiroumstances, at present existing, it was not eonsidercit wise to go
ahead with the matter, at least for
tho present.

PHILLIPINE  NEWS.
Vicious Attack on the Commission-
Catholics Deny Authorship.
ManilB, Aug. 14.���A pamphlet was
published broadcast yesterday containing a vicious attack on the United
States Phillipine commission, [signed
by the centro catholico. All the members of lhat body indignantly deny
having any connection with the publication. Thc leaders say that nobody
was more disgusted at such a publication than themselves. They believe
the pamphlet was issued by a local
paper in an endeavor to urcate a sensation, as the paper was published
simultaneously with the issue ot the
pamphlet. The latter was nominally
iu favor of the church culling on the
people to rise in their might against
Judge Taft, thc civil governor and
"the rest of the rickety brawlers
running the government of the United
States,' and saying "they huve declared war against God." Prominent
Catholics are awaiting Governor
Tuft's return to Manila in order to repudiate or behalf of the church the
sentiments contained in the pamphlet.

NELSON DIVISION ACTIVE.
More than nsual activity is prevalent In the mining industry in the
Nelson division, and the seaBon promises to bo marked by a considerable
increase in the production of ore. The
consolidation ofthe Athabasca and the
Venus mining companies ia an important one. The former company
has a complete ten stamp mill, operated by water power, for the reduction
of free milling ore, but the mine's
ledge is so broken by faults tbat it
cannot be relied on to keep the reduction plant in contant operation. Tho
Venus mine has a strong and continuous vein and haB from 15,000 to 20,-
000 tons of ore blocked out. Thus one
haB what the other hicks nnd the amal-
gatmation is a happy one. All tbat
is, therefore, needed to start the
production is a tramway connecting
the Venus mine with the Athabasca
mill, and tho company intends to
commence the task of building this
carrier immediately and it is thought
that the amalgamated company will
be producting bullion within three
months.
The Ewart-Davcnpott syndicate of
Spokano has just completed the purchase for $2(1,300 the Keystone group,
which ndjoins the Arlington ou
Springer Creek. The group is being
developed by the purchasers and ship
ments will not ho attempted until it
h_H been opened on a comprehensive
scale. The Arlington,it is announced,
has completed its arrangements to
ship 1,00(1 tons of ore per month to
the local smelter. The Arlington ore
is dry and, therefore, of a desirable
quality for the smelter. These and
other deals are under progress, reveal that a lively interest is being
taken in the mines of this division.
The success wh'ch has attended the
dvelopment of the properties of the
Ymir Mines, Limited, and the Arlington is attracting favorable attention
to that portion of the Nelson division
in the vicinity of Ymir and Erie.
During the era of company forming a
few years since a nsumber of corporations were created for the purpose of
operating properitcs in the vicinity of
Ymir, but most of these like the
American Eagle, Porcupine, Eldorado,
Black Cock and Rossland-Ymir, have
been compelled to cease operations on
account of tho difficulty experienced
during tho recent depression in selling
treasury stock, although tho properties controlled by them aro of a meritorious character. The Dundee which
owns a very valuable group of well developed olalms, ib tied up in a deal
with a syndicate of London operators,
but lt is thought thnt matters will
soon be brought to a bead and so soon

be of handsome design and will have
basomont, neating apparatus, bath
rooms, drying room, apartments for
workshops as well as dormitories to
accommodate about 40 boys.
Such an institution has long been
needed for the care of boys wbo have
proved incorrigible when under tbe
oare of parentB and guardians. What
will be most wanted when the institution is started is a competent hoad
for it, as it requires a rare combination of qualities to carry out thc intention of the law in regard to lads
placed in a place of detention of this
character, thu idea being, as the name
suggests, to reform. Tbe bead of the
instruction should be an individual of
humane, though firm, character with
an enthusiasm for his work, and one
who would by Mb example and his
teaohing lead the inmates to love
morality and honesty, to become obedient to parental and governmental authority, to make thorn undensaud that
unrestrained indulgence in vice ends
in trouble, while tho pursuing of a
moral course brings all the prizes aud
rewardB of life. Thoy should be kept
busy when not in school or at piny in
learning some trado or handicraft ��o
that they may be uble to earn a living
when released ; in short, he Bhould be
able to so direct matters that the boys
when released would become useful
members of society.
It is too often tbe case that the care
of reformation is given over to an individual as a reward for party service
without regard to his fitness for the
position. The result is that no attempt is made to look after the moral
or material welfare of the inmates.
Tbey are herded together and but
little attempt is made to keep them
employed, either in thu school room
or workshop, and thoy graduate from
the institution worse morally than
when tbey entered it, nud in this wny
the intention of the commonwealth
and of thc law is defeated.
At an investigation of a large re.
formatory iu one of tbe statos of tho
American union a physician, who
had boen the medical olllcer of the
placo for SO years,testified that he had
ont of curlusity kept in touch with
the thousands of boys and girls, who
had been inmutos of the place and out
of the entire number he know of but
threo who had not after their release
been imprisoned or charged with some
orlmc or misdemeanor. He attributed
tbo poor results reached to giving the
affairn of the institution into the
bands of ward politician! wbo were
wholly unlllttud for tbe duties.
It Is obvious, therefore, that the
superiiitondency of the re formatory
should be given to some competent
man who is trained ln the business
and who will be able to show thai,
bu can improve mentally and morally
those Intrusted tohiB care.

interfere with the judgment of the
court in tbe case. He further said
that a crisis had arisen in state affairs
in which the question is raised
whether murder is to be punished in
Washington or whether the law is to
be made an inBtrument of jugglery for
courts and lawyers. Then, to use his
own words, he goes on to say: "In
Whitman country in this state,according to Judge McDonald of thnt
county, some thirty murders and
lynohings altogether have taken place,
with one legal hanging, the latter
within the last threo years." In one
part of the refusal to interfere the
Governor says,nud this is where he pays
a compliment to this country: "In
England and Canada criminal law is
enforced and lynching is practically
unknown."
Governor Rogers, in the last sta'.e-
ment qucted, uttered a truth which
is patent to anyone who resides in
Canada for any length of time. Life
and proporty arc safer here than in
the states of the union, #nd this is
simply the result of enforcing the
law. If a man murders another he is
tried, convicted and executed; there is
no juggling with thc law, and tho re
suit is that murders are Infrequent
If the people of the Unitod' States desire life and property to be safe as it
is in Canada all that is necessary is
to vigorously enforce the law.
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Calgary Herald says that complaints are coming in from every poi-
tion of the stock country of stock lifting und attributes the boldness of the
depredators to the fact lhat a portion
of the Northwest Mounted police is
engaged in running a sideshow at the
Huifttio Exposition.
The Philadelphia Re"ordsays: "The
vexatious existing barriors to Inter-
coiuso between the United States and
Canada nre made to seem more intol-
oiuble by reason of the contrasting advantages of complete free trade between
the several Slates of the Union and
the fact that a common language is
spoken in both countries. That such
conditions Bhould have existed for a
hundred yeurs, to the disadvantage
of both countries, does not. speak well
for Ameiicun statesmanship."

by his friend and train-1
who   has   known |
GEORGE TOWNS,   THE OARSMAN.
George Towns, the   oarsman who is,
to row .lake   Gaudaur   for the cham- j
Dion-hip of the world,arrived in Mont-'
real on Friday.   A. press  correspond-!
e���'t who interviewed him says: Towns
proved to he a very modest man and a
���,ost agreeable fellow. De is youthful
i��� appearance, and not uniike Hanlan
in  the  heyday   of  his   fame.    He ie
accompanied
er    Tom   Sullivan,   -..-    ..-��   . j
him for years, and   has great faith in
Lis powers, though   he   acknowledges
that Ihe present holder ot the world's
championship   is   an   oarsman   whose
power.' and   achievements   have  won
his  highest   appreei .tion.    In    reply
t0 a question Towns  said:   "I  am  a
native of Newcastle tbe great coaling
station of New South Wales. My fath-
er was a boatbuilder   and faimer, and
from my earliest days (I   am   now iu
my thirty-third year) I was accustomed to the water at my father's place,
Raymond   Terrace   Village,     on   the
Hunter River.   While yet a lad I row.
od in many   local   regattas,   but  my
first noteworthy race   was on the Par-
am-ta river at   Sydney,    when 1  was
third in the final heat of a contest   in
who- Stanabury   and   Tom   Sullivan,
my trainer,   were   the   scratch   men.
The handicap was  won by Chris, Nel-
son."   This was in 1891. Towns' next
big mutch wns In the end of 18%, when
he rowed Nelson, by   that time a very
noted .souller in   Australia, Eor   ��200,
defeating him easily at the finish after
a very hard race.    He said:    "In this
contest I did so well that I was urged
to continue training, aud I came   over
to England,   with   my     friend   Tom
Sullivan,   who, by the way,  is a New
Zualander, and I   have boen  training
with   hiin   for the   last   four   years.
During   that   time   I*have   won   the
sculling    championship   of    England
twice.    My   first   match    waa    with
Barrie on the Thames course, for ��100
a Bide    In  a   second   match, in  the
sculling   sweepstake, I   met   with an
accident   winch   put me out   of   final
heat, because   my   boat   was     sunk.
This enabled Ilarrie to win the championship for England in   1800.    Hut a
few months later   I challenged Barrie
and I won easily.    The stake was for
��200 a side.    Soon   afterwards 1   was
challenged by Wray, the stake  being
the championship and   ��200 a side.   1
won this mile race   last year.    Now I
have  challenged   Oaudaur's   title   lo
the  championship of tho  world,   and
1 believe   I   car take it from him.    I
will make a try anyway     If he is the
better man yet, I will be satisllod but
I think if I am the better   oars -tan   1
ought   to   carry     tho     championship
I away. It is now six years since Gaudaur dofoated Stansbury on the Thames
I and a friendly contest betwoen us can
do no harm.    1   will   do ray   best   to
carry   the   championship to   tho   new
commonwealth, but   wo will be   good
friends any way, for your great  oarsman is a worthy sportsoi_n,and I only
wish to win on   my merits."   Towns'
rowing   weight   is  eleven stone   two
ponnds.    Ilis   trainer, Sullivan,   is   a
Une specimen of   tho manhood  of   the
Antipodes, and a very fine fellow.    He
is proud of his protege,and holds kindred sportsmanlike views with regard
to tlie great   contest   at  Rat  l'urtage
on Soptember 4. The articles of agreement provide   for   the   rowing of the
race on a three   milo course, one mile
and a half   and   return, foi   $.',000  a
Bide, on the Lake of   the   Woods,  between 4 and 7 n.m. on the day named.

IN CAMBORNE  CAMP.
Harold Hammond returned yesterday from Cambome, where he bas
been looking after some of his mining
claims. In spuaking of the cuiiip be
said to the Spokane Chronicle;
"There is considerable excitement
there over a strike made on the Criterion claim of the Oyster group.
The Hnd was made last Tuesday. The
rich oro wus louud in the shaft and
shows free gold. There is a good body
of it and Indication, point to the
fact that the new owners have found
it lucky.
"There is considerable work going
on at thu present time. The Rosenberger syndicate is doing more development than nny other company.
They hnvu recently acquired the
group and are developing and they are
not wasting any time in finding their
true worth. Tho London .- li. C.
Ooldliulds company is also doing considerable work on tbo Eva and Imperial groups. That company has
taken a bond on the pioperty and the
showing made since it started work
justilies further development and insures at least the lirst payment on thc
bond.
"What has been needed in the camp
for some timo is capital, and it is
but lately that it has been turned that
way. Now that money has been
secured to develop some of the claims
the district will make a name. A telephone line is to be run into Camborne
and Other improvements   are going on
rapidly."
While in British Columbia Mr.
Hammond located a group of three
cla'.ms in the Camborne district that
he says have good showings. A number of locations are being made near
there and good prospects havo been
reported.
