BECOMES A
ARRESTED fou murder.
San Francisco, Nov. 30.���The ferry
boatt San Rafael and Snnoilito collided in the bay in a dense fog to-
niirlit. The San Rafael was sunk and
it in thought a number of lives have
been lost. The Sancilito waB towed
up tlie bay, Tugs have gone to the
scesc of the collision whioh was off
Acntraz island.
Reports as to the number of lives
lost aro very conflicting and the
estimates run as high as .10. The San
Rafael was on her way from this city
to Sauolllto and had, it is estimated,
from llil to 250 passengers. Tin fan
Rafael was struck amidships, sinking
almost Immediately.
A large number of the passengers
were rescued by ropes from Alcatraz
island. James Moore, of Ross valley,
an employee of the Nevada Hank, waB
a pasieiih'or on tho San Rafaei. To
a reporter he said: "There was the
usual Saturday orowd on tlie San
Rafael when she left at 0.15 for
Sancilito, There was a dense fog and
Capt. McKenzic, of the San Rafael,
sent the ship along under a slow hell.
We nere about half way between
Lombard street wharf and Alcatraz
island when the Sancilito crashed into
us. I was smoking a cigar on the
fnvard deck of the San Rafael aod it
seemed to me that the Saucllito struck
us just shout amiships. There was
Iterrlilio crash and immediately there
was wild confusion. Men,women and
children rushed for life preservers
There were from 150 to 200 people on
ward the San Rafael. Some of ihem
limped overboard an soon as the
steamers collided, bnt I made up my
mind to stay by the ship; I had put
on a life preserver and knew that I
would float for a while at least.
There wns an attepmt to lower a boat
on tlie Han Rafael but I don't believe
many people got off in it. There was
too much confusion and fog for much
to be done,
Tlie last report from the Becne of the
collision states that the San Rafael
had about 250 passengers on board. It
Is thought, however.that most of them
were saved and that the loss of life is
not very great. Many of the passengers escaped in life preservers. The
Sancilito stood by and lowered boats,
reselling a iargc n_m__r 0f passengers. A conservative estimate places
tae number of drowned at 20.

VV. II. Bradley of this town has

convinced is the individual accused of
the bloodthirsty murder which took
place near Cart Wright on Monday.
The man captured by Bindley yesterday answers the description sent out
by the provincial police exactly except
in one very important particular.
This man has a a withered hand
which is not mentioned in the
description sent out. The man when
arrested was begging. The constable
took from him a list of tbe names of
persons who had given bim money,
which included four or five neighbors
of James Long,the murdered man,and
one of Constable Brad ley's'brothers,

neighborhood in which the murder
took place. This circumstance pruv-
ing suspicious Constable llradley questioned the man as to his whereabouts
on Monday evening last and received
the confident reply that he spent that
night in thc Leland hotel, Portage la
Prairie. A telegram to the Portage
soon brought baok the reply that no
such man had olepl tbere on Monday
night. The provincial police have
been communicated with. The suspect gives his name as Louis Salic.

NO AKKESTM MADE.
Paris Nov. 30.���Iuquiry at detective
headquarters and at the ministry of
the interior elicits the response that
nothing is known there regarding the
reported arrest of a representative in
London and PariB of numerous American companies or of any other person
on a oharge of complicity in extensive
forgeries on the London and West
minster bank.
London, Nov. 30.���Amusement was
created among the members of the
diplomatic corps by what is termed
the French ambassador's ordeal at the
Thanksgiving dinner given under the
auspices of the American society in
London. Throughout the evening M.
Cnmbon was obliged to listen to per-
fervid expressions of thn Anglo-American brotherhood, whieh toward the
end of the dinner developed into
enthusiastic prophecies that tho world
would be controlled by English speaking peoples, without a single reference to Franoe except Dy Henry
White, United States charge d'affaires,
who with a tactful utterance officially
disowned this thoughtless treatment
of the chief guest and got out himself
from what might have been an awkward predicament. M. Carabon outwardly took the whole affair as a
good joke on himself.hut it has created no little annoyance to the American embassy.
In connection with the positive
denial of the report that the Prinoe of
Wales is to challenge for the America's cup it appears that King Edward
may cause a crisis in the affurs of the
Royal yacht squadron through bis
friendship for Sir Thomas Lipton.
The chances of Sir Thomas Lipton to
thc Royal yacht squadron are still
as remote as evor. Should the king
force the Issue many members will
withdraw, but in view of the distinguished subjects who are members of
tbe squadron it is not likely that the
King will force matters.
The National club, of Whitehall, is
in a state of considerable excitement
over the fact that when Hall Caine
opened a Catholic bazaar a little
while ago in thc Isle of Man he announced himself as belonging to the
'liig Church," saying also that of all
the churches the Catholic church was
the church of the poor and speaking
of the  Pope   an   "his   holiness"   and
holy father." These are grounds of
offence to certain members of tho
National club, whose rule lt is tbat
its members must belong to the reformed faith. Mr. Caine has been
required to give his attention to thc
standing rule of the club which called
for an explanation or resignation.
Hereafter the King's drawing rooms
will be held in the evenings and admission will be by invitation instead
of by application. The ohanges
have delighted society.
Baron Twecdmouth's son, Dudley
Churchill Marjoribanks, brother of
Lady Aberdeen, was married to
Muriel, daughter of Mr. Broderiek,
war secretary, this afternoon. The
presents included gifts from the King
and Queen.
London, Nov. 30.���Bow street inspectors announoed at midnight that
no further arrests had been made in
connection with thc Liverpool frauds.
Counsel fcr the bank said, however,
that an additltonal warrant had been
issued for W. H. Si'cs, who has not
yet been taken into custody and who,

brought an action in the courts de
raanding that the MarquiB Fangonic

BULLER STILL POPULAR.
tho
Dramatic Scene When He  Toasts
King at Devonian Dinner.
London, Nov. 30.���The Devonian
dinner, at whieh General Buller presided, at the Hotel Oecil tonight, was
the scene of great enthusiasm and a
remarkable tribute to the personal
popularity of thc discredited general.
However it passed off without any
actual anti-government demonstration.
Long before the hour fixed for the
reception, the great courtyard of the
hotel was crowdeu with Bulleritea.
The arrival of Oeneral and Lady Buller was the signal for onthnsiastic
ohcering. The most dramatio scene
was in the banquet ball, where General Buller, as the presiding officer,
uecessarl ly proposed the health of the
King, by whose order the general had

of
Reichstag Taking Modern View
the Rights of Laboi.
Berlin, Nov. 30.���The session of the
Reichstag bo far has been quite uninteresting, witb the exeeptiou of the
duelling in interpellation. Thc bonse
has been occupied wi'h discussing
the law providing for reform in tbe
relations between sailors and their
captains, Introducing more modern
conceptions of the rights of labor.
The bill, however, fails to interest tbe
members and the debates havo taken
place to empty benches. The bill's
end s invisible, since the Socialists
offer over one hundred amendments
and the Reichstag begius tho Tariff

Pretoria, Nov. 30.���The Boers on
the night of November 26th made a
general attempt to break the block ���
house cordon along the railway west
of Middleburg but were repulsed
with, it is thought, a considerable
loss. An armored train turned back
the main body of 200 of the enemy
and the garrisons of the blockhouses
checked the attacking party at other
points.
NO TETANUS BACTERIA.
Camden, Nov. 80.���The board of
health of this oity today announced
the result of its investigation of the
vaccine used by local physicians. The
report of the board says tbat no
tetanus germs were discovered in the
virus. Nine deaths from loehjaw
after vaccination occurred here and
samples of all the different makes of
vaccine employed in Camden were
sent to the state hacterioloigst for examination. Dr. Mitchell, secretary of
the New Jersey board of health, reported to the local board that labra-
tory examinations of the vaocine
dem onstraled that no tetanus bacteria
were present.
THE I10NINE DEFENCE.
Washington, Nov. 80.���The government today closed its oase in the trial
of Mrs. Lota Ida Bonilne for the killing of James Seymour Ayres, Jr.,
and Attorney Kcanc, for the defense,
made a preliminary statement in behalf of Mrs. Boninc. It was made
evident from Mr. Keane's statement
that the effort would be to show lack
of motive for thc orime on the part of
Mrs. Boninc aud to support her plea
that Ayreti was killed in a struggle
after he had tried to intimidate her
with a revolver.

London, Nov. 30.���The foregn

troops, having taken pint In many
previous engagements. Among them
are a few fcmBle relatives of the

Panama this afternoon.
From Panama comes the news thnt
the surrender of Colon to the government struck the Liberals like a thunderbolt and they arc slill unable to
realize the fact that the city is again
in the hands of the Federal
authorities.
The recapture of Colon is admitted
to be amlost a death blow to the
Liberal cariso in this department.
There is no douot that guerilla warfare will be resumed in the mountains, but stronger forces and better
organization are cousidcicd essential
requisites for thc Liberals if they
intend to resume the struggle
seriously.
Both Panama and Colon are quiet.
Trains on the railway still carry

TALKED ABOUT MISS STONE.
New York, Nov. 30.���The Rev. Dr.
Wm. T. Haven, secretary of the American Bible society, bas just returned
from Constantinople, having visited
many of the missions in Turkey, he
brings direct news of their feeling regarding the abduction of Miss Stone.
He said: I found the American mission workers much perturbed ovsr tbe
situation, though they were hopeful
that thc affair would terminate in the
release of Miss Stone and her companion. All tne missionaries met
were anxious tbat everything possible
should be done to secure the release
of the captives, but many of them
were concerned about the payment of
thc ransom to tbe brigads, and they
felt that Its payment would put all
the missionaries in jeopardy of abduction. It is thc current idea in Constantinople that the kidnapping uf
Miss Stone and her companion was
Inspired by the Macedonian committee
and had political entanglement as its
ultimate object. Thc report which I
beard when I reached home that Miss
Stone was dead may very easily be
true, for the region in which she and
her companion have been kept by the
brigands is one of extreme exposure.
It is not only most inscccssible but
tnere is constant and severe cold, with
almost continuous storms and unless
the captives have been better cared
for than it would seem possible fcr
them to be, under the circumstances,
it may   well   be   expected   that   they

MILITIA MAN DEAD.
Frcdcrictoii,     N.   B.,     Nov.   30.���
jSnrgeon    Lieutenant-Colonel     Robert
McLaren, of the K. C. R.    I.   of  this
' pity, is dead of heart disease, aged 47
years.
South East Kootenay is essentially
a mining district, and is a country ot
vast possibilities in agriculture, lumbering and other industries
During the past four years the Canadian Pacific railway company hBs
had surveyors in the Hold every summer, ostensibly their business was to
survey lands already crown-granted
to that company But the real fact of
their being here was to'select the best
InndH^in the valley, that when tho II.
C. .Southern railway was completed,
that they would he able to secure Iho
best arable land in the Kootenay valley under an act whioh gave them
20.000 acres per mile of constructed
railway.
The most important question that is
before the people of South East Kocte-
nay today, is, the manner in whieh
the provincial government has disposed of almost the entire district of
South East Kootenay as railway land
grants, riot only for railways constructed in this district but for railways that do not approach within
several hundred miles ot its borders.
During the past two years over 8,000,-
000 acres have been crown granted to
the H. C. Southern as land grants. A
small section, shown on the map a*
L. 4,503, situated in tin- southeastern
portion of the district waB reserved.
A portion shown as L. 4.504, was also
reserved, as was supposed, to be retained by the government as lands
open for preemption,as lands valuable
to the province.
These lands were known to be rioh
in mineral, coal and oil, lumber and
land for agriculture Strong protests
have been made to the government,
indicating the value and resources of
these several nreas. The 0. P. R.
knowing the prospective value of
these large areas, did not make any
attempt to have them inoluded in the
B. C. Southern land grant. They
selected land on the western slope of
the Selkirk range along the eastern
side of Kootenay Lake. With all thlH
large area, there was not sufficient to
meet the demand of the railway company, and a large area some 34 by 40
miles, containing about 870,000 acres,
the best lands available in the Windermere district, are reserved for railway purposes, that is, to complete the
B. C. Southern land grant.
It looked as if blocks L. 4 504,and L.
4,503 were to escape from the clutches
of the big corporative land pirates,
But this wns not to be. The area
was supposed, anil is known to be
rich In coal, oil and petroleum. And
a railway in West Kootenay, owned
by tbe C. P. R. wanted land under a
construction act. It is known as the
Columbia and Wes'ern, and is said to
run from Trail to Pontinton. This
grant oalls for 20,000 acres per mile of
standard guage, 10,240 acres per mile
if of narrow guage. With an eye to
business, tbe C. P. It. has managed to
have thebe two blocks crown granted
to said Colnm'jia and Western railway, Or more particularly speaking,
to   themselves.
South East Kootenay contains an
acreage of about 4,.10(1,000 acres. The
Canadian Pacific hns received from
the provincial government 3,400,000
aores. Instead of following out the
agreements of their charter, "the taking of alternate section.', on cither side
ol said railways," it is taken in
blocks, prospected, and practically
selected by the railway company.
We wonder If tho government fully
understood, and bad a knowledge of
the future prospective value of these
enoimous areas. As it is, however, it
is up to the present government to explain why these areas were reserved,
and if reserved in the interest of the
Canadian Pacific Railway company.
The crown granting of blocks 4,504
and l..v.i:i occurred during the month
of October last.���Fort Steele Prospector.

LEAD POSSIBILITIES.
The production of lead for the
month of September shows a slight
increase, over August, being, in
round numbers.3,100,000 pounds. The
importations were considoiably
higher than in August, reaching the
total of more than 2,000,000 pounds.
All lead imports cost the Canadian
people a few dollars more than
8100,000. Had tney paid three cents a
pound for the lead they used they
would have paid 178,000 for it. Tbis
leaves a possible manufacturing business of $22,000 a month to be done
without costing the consumeis any
more than at present, and not taking
into account the cost of the material
used. A line of industry whicb has a
turnover of that sum a month, or
$250,000 a year is quito an Important
one.
The lead in ore sold last September
averaged the mine owner only about
1.45 cents per pound, or the vtbole
output of 3,100,000 pounds, 84.5,000.
Three cents a pound for tbe 7.000,000
pounds imported would have brought
878,000 so that there is a possible business for the smellers and refiners of
$33,000 a month, or 8400,000 a year.
An equitable division of this sum
among the mine owners and refiners
would give an immense impetus to
mining in the Slocan and East Koote
nay. There wonld still remain 600,
000 pounds to be disposed of at
present prices which would bring tho
total receipts from lead for the month
up to 884,700, or $1,010,400 for the
year.
Tbe refining of lead in Canada and
tbe retaining of the home market for
home mines possibly oan be done only
with a small margin of profit, smaller
than in most lines of business���but
the question now is whether with the
establishment of the refining industry the present conditions could be
bettered. It looks as if the conditions
were as unfavorable now as they are
likely to be, while the growth of
Canada alone and the new markets
tbat are opening up gives promise of
better prices for what has to be ex ���
ported. It is plain that unless the
price of lead in the United States to
the minors falls very much below
what it is now, the United States ean
never witb their own lead enter the
foreign market. The smelters of
that country now export only the lead
they have imported in bond from
Oanada and Mexico; in other words,
Canada and Mexico supply the raw
ore on which several large smelters
and refineries aro kept going, and
there seems no good reason why those
industries cannot be carried on as
well in Canada as in tho United
States. Canada could also import
from Mexico, if needs lie. A fall in
the price of lead, such ns would suable United Stales lead to reach the
world's market, would close down
many of the mines there and thus prevent a   surplus in the world's supply
With the improved machinery, large
supply of coal, electric and water
power available, and as well-skilled
labor as can bo obtained anywhere^
the way appears open Ior Canada to
eventually cut a figure as a lead producing cuuntry,particularly as the lead
is here always associated with silver
sometimes in quite large   quantitites.
A HOPEFUL V1LVV.
In a recent Interview John A.
Finch, of Spokane, who has large
mining interests in British Columbia,
said that he expected to see every
silver-lead mine in the Northwest
operating to its fullest capacity after
January 1st. In support of his con
tention Mr. Finch advances some good

It seems a little early to mention  them
but every lady prefers to give her friends
something of
Her Own Handiwork
and it is high time to select and choose the necessary material. We have just received a very complete assortment
of Belding's celebrated Stamped Linen Goods consisting of
surplus and a decline in the market to
3 1-s cents would mean a loss cf between $3,000,000 and $4,000,000 to it
on the surplus already on hand, to say
nothing of existing contracts. This
scorilice the trust is unwilling to
make, and from a business standpoint
it cannot 0c expected that it will do
so. The hope of lead mining depends
on the reduction of the surplus and
until this is done there will be
no stability in lead mining, but
present indications point to an early
adjustment and the surplus will he so
far exhausted as to be of no material
influence in thc future market price
and the making of contracts for the
future output of the mines.
The views of Mr. Finch seem logical and are based on thu law of supply
and demand For a time the lead production exceeded the capacity of the
markets of the world to absorb it, and
a surplus was accumulated. As a re
suit o( tbis condition there was a fall
in price in the natual maikets of tbe
world, but in the United States the
price was artificially sustained by the
power of the trust. Now that the
surplus Is being reduced, logically
wi h the decrease, there should come
an advance in the price of   tbe metal

The petition by cieditors for tha
eompuslory liquidation of the London

hearing in London recently, says i
London exchange. It will be reinem
bered that Mr. Whitnkcr Wright math
a desperate effort to get the share
holders to withdraw their support of
this petition by holding out an extremely tempting reoganization
scheme as a bait, and it might have
been supposed that shareholders
would follow him to a considerable
extent. As, "..owever, tbe creditors
announced that a compulsory liquidation would not Interfere with a future
reconstruction on favorable lines, the
bulk of the shareholders adhered to
their previous intentions, anil did not
withdraw their support to the petition. Under tho circumstances Mr.
Wh'taker Wright and the directors
could do nothing bnt gracefully sub-
ir.it to the inevitable, and thc order
for compulsory liquidation was made
without opposition. Now thnt thc

under Mr. Whitaker Wright's control

SUE TOLD DIM.
A young man wns at u sreial function in a nearby town the other night
and it fell to his lot to cuUrtnin a
pretty young lar'y, and as she wns
full of life he enjoyed himself very
well. Ishe had a short sleeved gown,
and he thought ha never before had
seen such beautiful arms, but she
seemed ill at ease and finally said:
"I was vaccinated the other day and
it took beautifully: I could almost
scream it hurts so." He gazed at her
faultless arms in astonishment aud
asked: "Why where were you vaccinated?" "In Winnipeg," she said
with a smile, anc the young man fell

It is a mystery why women endure

Sleeplessness. Melancholy, Fainting
and Uiz^y Spells when thousands have
proved that Electric Hitters will
quickly cure such troubles. "I suf-
ered for years with kidney trouble."
writes Mrs. i'hebe Cherley, of Peterson, la., "and a lame buck pained me
so I could not dress myself, but Elec-
trio Bitters wholly cured me, and,
although 78 years old, I now am able
to do all my houeswork." It overcomes Constipation, improves Appetite, gives perfect health. Only 50e at

WRITE RIGHT
"Scatter Decent, Helpful Things "
! flood, philosophical Rns Wilson
once said to a Dew reporter, "Young
man, write as you feel, but try to feel
right. Be good humored toward
everyone and everything, llelieve that
other lolks aie just as good as you
are, fur they are. (Jive 'em your best
and bear in mind that God has sent
them, In his wisdom, all the trouble
tbey need, and it is for you to scatter
gladness and decent, helpful things
as you go. Don't be particular about
Iidw the stuff will look in print but
let 'cr go. Some one will understand.
That is better than to write so dash
hi.ig high, or so tarnathun deep.
that   no   one   understands.     Let"'er
go"
"So on the above plan, " says M. W.
Portar of Topeka, Kan.. "I will
write what 1 know of drape-Nuts
Breakfast J^ood from personal experience. After a long period of indigestion and other disorders, with some
misgivings, I took up the ut>c of
Grape-Nuts. Despite the hot weather
I kept gaining in strength and mentally, a thing I had never done at
that season of the year. I found the
food an excellent stimulant fur the
brain, and I could do mure and better
work thnu I had ever done. It was a
revelation to discover how closely tho
brain and digestive organs were in
sympathy with each other. Whatever
retarded the work of one had a corresponding effect on the other, and the
food that tended to put one in proper
shape acted accordingly on the other.
1 know that my great improvement
mentally and physically came from
dispensing with unwholesome food
and nslmj Grape-Nuts liberally. j

ber of the government's advisory

WOMEN AND JEWELS.
Jewels, candy, flowers, man���that
is the order of a woman's preferences.
Jewels from a magnet of might power
to the average woman. Even that
greatest of all jewels, health, is often
ruined in the strenuous efforts to
make or save the money to purchase
them. If a woman will risk her
health to get a coveted gem, then let
her fortify herself against the insidn-
ous consequences of coughs, colds and
bronchial affections by the regular
use of Dr. Bosehee'a German Syrup,
it will promptly arrest consumption
in its early stages and heal the
affected lungs nnd bronchial tubes
and drive tho dread disease from tlie
system. It Is not a cure-all, but it is
a certain euro for coughs, colds and
all bronchial troubles. You can get
Dr. G. G. Green's reliable remedies at
