O'BRIEN PAID
THE PENALTY
It Is Morally Certain That.
He Was Executed Yesterday.
Story of the  Awful Crimes
for Which He Was
Convicted.
O'Brien, the Dawson murderer, it is
presumed, was hanged at Duwson
yesterday, but owing to thu faot that,
tlie telegraph line is not. quite completed to Dawson no news of the
event has heen received. It is certain,
the authorities at Ottawa refused
to interfere, that the murderer expiated his crimes on the gallows,
The story of how he and his partner
killid three men is as follows:
(In Christmas morning,   lKilfl,   three
mon left a road-house on the Skagway
trail,   known   as   Minto   road-house.
The next road-house was at Ilutchlku.
and   there   they Should have  arilved
that night,   hut they never turned up,
Two   of them, Clayson and Hole, had
come thus far,200 miles from Dawson,
I Intending   to spend   tho   winter   with
! their  families   in   the   States.     The
third man,   name.   C'leson,   belonged
j to Hutoliiku, where  he was employed
I in   connection     with   the    telegraph
lines.    lie hud heen sent out to repair
the line, and having   done su, was le-
turnlng to his post.    He had made an
(engagement to be present at a Christ-
j mas dinner at   Hutoliiku,    for   whicli
I Corporal Ryan of the Mounted   Police
I had    provided   a   rare   treat  in   the
Yukon, namely, a turkey.    There was
considerable surprise   when   he foiled
tn   he   on   hand,    and    when he   was
still   absent,    on     December     81   his
friend the   corporal    fearing   that   he
had   received   some hurt   iu   tho performance of his   duty,   started   down
the line in hopes   of   coming   to  his
aid," if he needed any.
Corporal Ryan   had   got   down   the
trail a  good   many   miles   when   his
Isharp   eye   observed   the   truces of a
trail running   away   from   the   main
i travelled road,   apparently   into   the
���hush.    Snow had fallen   upon it,   and
���the   inexperienced   eye   would     have
���detected   nothing   to   d-'stiiignish    it
���from the general expanso of the snow-
|covered wilderness.  But the constable
espied two   faint parallel depressions
:ra the white surface,and he wondered
what could   have  induced   anyone   to
make such a depaiture from the main-
travelled   road.     He   determined   to
follow it.    Six   hundred   yards   from
tho main road he found hidden  in the
dense scruh a tent.    No one was about
it, hut   it   looked   as   if  the  owners
might ho hack any  moment.     It   had
evidently been occupied by   two   persons, for there was a double bunk and
a duplicate supply of the   table   uttn-
sils of the Yukon traveller.
The constable waited over night, in
tho hope that the owners wonld turn
up, hut soon concluded that the plaee
had been abandoned. He reported to
his comrades, and Constable Penny-
cuiok and Detective Magiiiro, also of
the Mounted Police, were detui led to
look into the matter. The manner in
which these men wrung her secrets
from the bosom of the desert forms a
really marvellous chapter in the
records of crime. They spent weeks
in the neighborhood of the tent and
along t)1(. prlvate trail which had
served as the key to the whole black
mystery. They laterally sifted the
snow inch by inch, and from many
until things   thoy   read   the  ghastly
I story. They found the three patches
of nloou where the victims had given
up their lives, not without a struggle
"ii the part of Oleeon   at least.     They
pound the discarded shells of the
uartrldges by which tho deed hadjbeen
ilnne. They found a bonlire near ihe
lent,in which their clothing had bien
burnt to prevent ldcntilication. lint
from tbo ashes wero picked out hut-
tuns, buckles, etc., whicli were identified. After the Hres had cooled, the
murderers     had   evidently   gathered
I larger articles that would not burn
and thrown them into the surrounding
scrub. Hut the patient ollioers found
many 0f them���-Clayson's Yale keys,
which were found to fit the drawers
to which they belonged, an electric
belt which Oleson was known to wear,
also Iiih Hies and plyers.
It was evident  that   the   men   who
ASSESSING THU NATIVES.
Colon, Columbia, via tlalveston,
Aug. :.'.'!.���An official decree dated
Bogata, July 18 and addressed to the
Governors of the departments, was
published today.    It says:
"A new aspect of the war, which
soems to kindle anew with the help
of foreigners, who threaten the
front'or, places the government under
tbe necessity of a.suming a different
attitude from that maintained hitherto, and to introduce proceedings
which it has previously tried to avoid,
lt has been resolved, firstly, to suspend the payment of all accounts for
war materials pending, and to limit
the expenses to the payment of the
armed forces aud administration.
Secondly, to proceed to expropriate all
ihe necessary elements for the feeding, equipment, and mobilization of
tho army. Thirdly, to levy forced
and voluntary loans according to
circumstances, and to impose war
contributions in oider to meet tho expenses of each department without
depending on the .National capital.
The Governors are hereby amply
authorized to proceed in these matters
according to the requirements of circumstances, without the need of approval from the Government, and oit-ii
Governor must assume tile responsibility, in order to save the situation
within bis territory."

The bodies were stripped and thrown
iuto a pars of tne river where it was
open, disappearing under tlie ice, to
be discovered ghastly and grim many
months afterwards when the spring
Hoods began their revelations.
But the officers had not waited for
this evidence to take action. In [the
abandoned tent was an ordinary
Yukon stove, but an alteration had
been made on it that singled it out
from nil others. That stove bad been
seen in the possession of two men
named O'Brien and Graves. O'llrlen
had been in Dawson prison and had
been a great deal up aud down the
river about that time. He was arrested at Taglsb as a suspect, and the
police gradually wove a net of circumstantial evidence about hiin that
lacked nothing to make it absolutely
complete. Articles belonging to the
murdered men were found on him.
and almost every step of his journey-
ings befoie reaching and after leaving
the scene were traced. Before December 25, 1809, he was penniless, begging
his way. Alter that date be was in
possession of a roll of bills and a
pouch of nuggets, one of them being
so remarkable as to be well known in
Dawson, and also known to have
been in possession of Clayson.
Graves, the other mun, sjcuis to nave
utterly vanished, but it is suspected
that O'Brien subsequently murdered
the partner cf his crime.
Seldom have tne tirelessness and
resourcefulness of Hritish justice
been moie remarkably displayed, Mr.
Fred Wade, the Crown prosecutor,
when tho case was brought to his
notice, appears to have determined
that no trouble or expense should be
spared in hunting down the murderer
of these three unfortunate men. One
witness who had left the Yukon was
taken back r,,(J00 miles, although
the narration of his story occupied but
live minutes. Another witness was
detained a year and a half at tho expense of the Crown in ordor to secure
ber evidence. Mr. Wade in his final
summing up of the evidence, spoke
highly of the work of Officers Penny-
cuick and Maguire, and of the police
enerully, and thu, tribute was well
deserved, but even tbeir work would
ave been uselcas had it uot been
backed up by Mr. Wade's determination to bring the murderer to justice,
whatever the cost might be. The result was the conviction of O'Brien on
the Charge of fnurder for which he
was sentenced to death.

Vancouver, II. C, Aug. 23.-The
steamer Hating arrived today with the
first ollical list of passengers lost in
the wreck of the Islander. Tbey were:

Vancouver, Aug. 23. ��� David llealey,
0. S. immigration commissioner,
states that his Government bas decided
to deport all Chinese caught crossing
the line from Canada to tie United
States, to their native country. This
news is of particular interest on the
British Columbia coast. Formerly
the huntlereds of Chieese captured by
United States officers smuggling themselves from British Columbia into
Washington slate were simply turned
baok into Hritish territory. This
plan did not work for the Chinese are
a perseverirg race and follow thc good
advice given in the copybook, ''It
at first yon don't succeed, try, try,
again." Although the plan of deporting the self smuggled Chinamen
to China is more effective it has serious drawbacks. It will cost the
country from $1.10 to $800 for each
Chinaman deported and should a Celestial desire a free passage home after
making a tidy sum hy industry and

do is to run into the open arms of an

New York, Aug 33.���Owing to a
misunderstanding of orders, tho cup
challenger, Shamrock II., did not
have a trial spin outside Sandy Hook
today. The original programme was
to have the yacht towed to Sandy
Hook from her anoborage off Staple-
ton, 11. I., starting at 11 o'clock, and
tnen to have het go out on a trial
spin over the America's enp course,
but the forenoon was spent in putting
battens in the new mainsail and in
making some alterations and repairs
to the yacht's rigging. It was noon
before this was finished so that the
Shamrock was not ready to start until
after the men had had their dinner.
At 1 o'clock the crew began hoisting
the mainsail, Captain Sycamore understanding that the yacht was to sail
out to Sandy Hook. But Sir Thomas
Lipton and Mr. Watson, after a conference, decided that it would be better to tow the yacht with the Erin on
account of the strong breeze prevailing, which, if the yacht sailed, would
mak" it a long tedious beat down the
main ship channel to Sandy Hook.
Accordingly at '_ p. m. the tow hegan.
At 3 p. in. it was decided not to sail
over any stated course, and the boat
returned to her moorings. She showed tvocderful ability to work to windward under that short sail. The Associated Press tug Unique towed her
the last half mile until she was made
fast to her buoy ot 4 p. m.
Sir Thomas will see the Columbia-
Constitution race off Oyster Bay tomorrow. The Shamrock will not sail
again until Monday, but she will get
out every day after that except Sundays, leaving ber moorings at 10
o'clock to tako trial spins ovei the
America's cup course.
Sir Thomas Lipton may not be able
to add the America's cup to the goods
and chattels which will form part of
his luggage when he returns to England after the international event,
nevertheless it is tho unanimous
opinion of yachting experts who have
examined Shamrock II. since its arrival, that in his latest nalf-uiillion-
nollar challenger the Irish Knight has
the best craft ever sent to this side to
compote ih a similar event. Shamrock II. is u revelation to American
yachtsmen who have been inclined to
believe that tho latest challenger had
suffered from over-training as is apparently tho caHe with Constitution.
Hut since Sir Tommy's little lighter
bas been over in Erie Basin being
prepared for her Aincricun debut, such
ideas have been east uside. Reports
from the other side of tho water on
the second Shainiock, it is now apparent, were entirely misleading. To
the American mind was conveyed tho
idea that the Shamrock that so distinguished itself in these waters two
yeais ago was a better boat than the
new one which Hies the colors of the
llooyal Ulster Yacht Club and the
private ensign ot the millionaire
sporting tea merchant. Sir Tommy
may not have a' winner, but he certainly has done himself oroutl in
every respect iu this latest creation of
his own grit antl money, and of the
skill of his designers There is no
longer any question but that the
Shamrock II. is vastly superior to
Shamrock I. It is unfortunate in
many ways, for American interests at
least, that no snch improvement lias
been shown in the construction of the
Constitution over the Columbia, the
defender two years ago. There is
hardly an Ai~etioa yachtsman tcduy
who will assert that the Constitution
is a better boat than the Columbia,
while there is a vast number of people
in America antl England both who
believe the Columbia to be the battel
craft, Now that a new line has been
obtained on the yachts to sail for the
America's cup, it is evident that the
contest will be a close one, hard
fuugliMit every point.*

Pekin, Aug. 23.���The delay of the

China intends to defy tlie powers by

FRANCE GETTING I.XCITED.
Paris, Aug. 23.���In regard to the
Turkish situation it is stated that no

young Turks and other disaffected
Ottoman subjects antl voluntary exiles

and who will have a free hand if

It bas been suggested that the French
Government issue orders for the

securities, Hut it is not likely that
this step will be taken, as it would
only injure the French bondholders.
The entire Turkish group fell on the

Rossland, Aug. :;:i.--Whituhcr
Wright has resigned from the directorate of the Le Roi company. News
of this was received from London by
cable tooay and when Bernard Mac-
Donald was questioned in regard to it
be professed ignorance but stilted lhat
the report was very likely true as Mr.
Wright bad such a move in contemplation for some time. This is taken
as pract-cal confirmation of the news
as it ie the lirst time that Mr Mac-
Donald has even hinted at such an
outcome to the warfare being waged
against Wright by the sun-holders of
the Le Roi company.
It Is thought that the Rossland

it was always looked upon as a stock
jobbing manoeuver of Wright and his
associates. Ilis resignation will probably be followed bv that of Mr. Mao-
Houald and satisfactory terms will

Ilellville or Joliet and the situation
at these points is considered by them
to   be   unchanged.    A   conference   of
leaders at the offices of the Amalgamated Association today was the leading feature of the strike during the
���lay. Officials of tho organisation
seemed pleased with tbe way things
ure moving, aud one said somewhat
mysteriously "In another six flays
you will see a decided change in the
strike that will nil with greater
effect on the trust and aid in hurrying

SHAMROCi- SIKH'LI. WIN.
The old cup winner, the Columbia,
on Thursday heat tlie new defender,the
Constitution, with ease. The dispatch says: ''The Columbia gave tin-
Constitution a good sound beating
twice around the Zanhake course "
It further says: ������ The new boat (lid
not seem to bave any of tho speed she
has shown in light air. She was
sluggish on the starting line.although
the two yachts cussed almost at the
same minute with a one -.-nn start,
and the Columbia romped off and took a
lead of one-eighth of a mile, while
the Constitutions was gathering
way."
From the foregoing it is evident
that the new cup defender in a fairly
good wind, like that which prevailed
on Thursday, is slower than the old
defender. In light winds, however,
the Constitution seems to sail to
better advantage. It is possible that
the Columbia, if she were substituted
for the Constitution in the forthcoming contest for the America cup. would
give the better account of herself.
The Shamrock, Sir 'Thomas Upton's
new challenger, took a preliminary
spin in lower New York bay oil Thursday and gave a most satisfactory
account of herself. Bhe is a beautiful
craft. She is said, to a great extent,
to be constructed on tin- lines cf the
Columbia, which will rob the contest
of tho inteiest aiising from a test on
different types of hulls.
It is Ml years since the Amcria cup
Was won by the yacht America and
the sentiment in tbe United Stales is
said to be strongly in favor of the
challenger, and il is hoped that she
will be able to c-iiry tho trophy back
with her across the Atlantic. Ah Hiccup bus remained the property of the
Americans for so long ihe public of tbe
United States would applaud the
Shamrock and its plucky owner if she
won this time. Besides it is thought
if the Americans were successful! on
-his occasion ii would so discourage
Hritish yachtsmen that thoy would
not compete for the cup for a long
time to come. On the other hand,
should the Shamrock wiu it would
stimulate Interest and the Americans
would be so eager to recover the
trophy that they would have a try for
it at least once a year or several years
or until tbey had got back their lost
prestige.
Should Sir Thomas Lipton win, be
would, indeed, he the hero of the hour
on his return to Hie Mother Country,
and would be wined and dined to his
heart's oontent. Tbo Britisli people
everywhere would celebrate the event
with us lnucii enthusiasm as if British
valor had won a notable bat lie.
From the interest which Bis Majesty
bas shown in yacht ing. and particularly In the Shamrock, it is evident
tbat he would be ns well pleased as

were to come to the Hritish vessel,and
it is almost certain that sir Thomas
Lipton would be given, as a reward
for what he had accomplished, a
higher titlb than thc one which ho at

T. A. Russell, secretary of the
Canadian Manufacturers' Association
of Canada, in an Interview published
in The Miner mi Friday, calls nttention to a grievance which the lumbermen complain of. lie Bald: "Although tin- lumber trade is in a fairly
good position at presont, the lumbermen feel the injustice of the present
tariff relations between Canada and
tin- United states. A heavy duty on
lumber entering the United .States
prevents Canadian shipments to that
market, while the American lumber
men can at anv time ship any surplus
Htoch into the Canadian markets duty
free. In this way, while a mill BOUtll
of the boundary bus its own large
market to itself, and bIho a free ell-
trance to our smaller market, tie- one
north of the line has no entrance in
the larg r market and only an even
chance for the smaller."
besides the grievance i plained of
by Mr. Kussoll tbe lumbermen nrd
empelleil lo pay a limber royalty and
lieenae fees and in the year 1000 the
provincial revenue   from   this   source

EDITORIAL NOTES.
There is already a constitutional
case awaiting adjnnication by the
federal court of the Austi-ialian   Com
larger than it is and thu Dominion
Government should do all that it can
to aid our lumbermen and plnce them
on as near an equal footing with, their
American rivals aa possible. An import duiv on lumber, equal to tbat
���-acted by the American (Iovernment
on the same product sent from Canada
into the United States, would end the
taiilT injustice which exists and give
tlie British Columbia lumbermen a
better chance ii' Hie home market.
Then the royalty on lumber could be
taken oil' or cut down lo such a figure
that 0111 lumbermen would be able to
compete with the Americans in foreign
markets.
There arc sn sawmills in tie- province with a iiaily capacity of 2,000,000
feet, but tbey are not run to tin- loll
limit and their annual nut rur.B from
150,000,000 to 10(1,(11111 nun feet- A number of estimates have been made as to
the amount of timber in sight in lb''
province and these range fiom
forty billion to om- hundred billion
feet. The total area of forest and
woodland, put tit;wn by the Dominion
statistioan is 285,5_- square miles,
but this is not all ot commercial
value, for tbe reason that considerable
of lin- area is covered with small trees
of but little use except foi fuel.
When, however, the extent ot and
value of thc timber resources aie con
sidered it is obvious lhat Ihe indnstiy
should be encouraged by the lawmakers   of    both    the     province   and
Dominion by enactments that will as
much aa possible aid in its expansion
and development.
KING (>!���' TKUTTl-KS.
Cresceus, who by reason of his covering a mile in the rcmaikable time
of -.(ri1,, earned tlm title of the
CDampion trotter, made a new record
for himself al Readvillo,, Mass., on
Thursilay by lowering the world's
record for final quarters in a mile race
io j'.i', seconds. At the Columbus
traok a short '.iine since Cresceus made
the first half mile in GO , seconds,
which was the fastest half mil,, ever
trotted. The fact that a half mile
was trolled in less than a minute
gives encouragement to the hope that
a mile will be traversed bv some
thoroughbred trotter before long in
two minutes, Horsemen have long
been enileavoi ing to produce an equine
that would accomplish this remarkable feal. No class of horses have
shown more effectively tho results of
breeding than tlie trotter. At lirst a
horse tbat trotted a mile in 2i50 was
considered speedy, and the time was
gradually reduced to 2;40, :;::;", and
win n Maud S. trotted a mile iu harness in ilill-1., it was thought tin-
limit hud been reached. This record
ivas lowered until now Cresceus has
cut it down so thnt there only remains
two and a quarter seconds to cut off
to bring it to two minutes, it is
within thc range of probabilities that
Cresceus, under favorable circumstance., may take off a second or a
second and a quarter from bis present
record, and we believe it equally certain thai will not be long before a
trotter will mane the milo in two
minutes. When tlie trotting record
for a mile ha
empowered by a clause of the act con-
stituiing the federal postollico department, to seize and suppress all letters
to and from lottery managers and rac
inc sweep promoters. Tasmania, the
smallest of the federal stales and the
one with the smallest revenue, has
heretofore derived from .15,000 . lo
S2(i,U0ii of its revenue from the operations of the largest sweep promoter of
tbe southern hemisphere, who is a
Tasinanian. It has entered a strong
protest, denying the right of tin
federal power thus to override and
nullify the state legislation under
whicli this revenue-producing citizen
conducts bis operations.

Discussing the eeiu-ns returns, the
Toronto Globe says: "Comparisons of
the progress of Manitoba and the
other western regions with the noilh-
western _itat.es may now be made
without mortifying 0111* national
pride. North Dakota increased in the
last decade from 182.710 to 319,140;
Manitoba Increased from 152,500 to
240,40-1. nearly as great a rate of
increase. South Dakota increased
from ir.'S.soS to till,.",70, a much
smaller relative gain than that of
Manitoba. Montana increased from
132,150 to 243,320 ��� Idaho from 84,385
to 101,772, and Wyoming from 00,705
to 92,531, None of these show the
same rapid growth as thc Canadian
Territories, which increased from 06,-
707 to 145,000. Oregon antl Washington may be compared witli Hritish
Columbia. i'bey net-cased in the decade from 053,000 to 932,000, or nearly
50 per cent, while the increase in
Hritish Cnuiubia was nearly 11111 per

ovei us in the start, bnt we seem to

It is doing to He the Higgest Thing
in That Line Attempted There.
All previous efforts in Ihe line of
public expositions at Spokane will be
eclipsed by the fruit and agricultural
fair that the eity is new planning to
have during the coming month of September, at least, that is what, the
Spokane people say. Work nn the fair
has been in progress for seveial
months and tho arrangements are at
last approaching tlnal completion.
Frank W. Smith of Spokane, one of
the best known business men and
most public spin-ted citizens of the
Falls City, who is now in Seattle on
a hrief visit to the coast,during whioh
he took in the Tacoma Carnival, said
this morning in regard to tlie Spokane
fair:
"All indications point to the most
popular fair in tho history of the city.
The surrounding country is Immensely
prosperous this yoar as a result of the
enormous crop of wheat, fruit and
other farm products and the farmers
are all well able to take a week or
two off at the idle fall season and
come t" the eity to attend the fair.
In past years the fruit fairs havo been
immensely populai with all classes,
not only with the visitors in the eity,
who have come in by the thousands to
attend, but also by the residents of
Spokane, who have always turned out
in very large numbers to attend.
"This year the programme is
doubled by arranging to have the
Elks' carnival at the same time as the
Fair. The arrangement is a very
admirable one and provides that, the
fair shall have the right of way with
the crowds in the dav time and the
carnival be closed, while the evenings
are to be given up to the carnival.
"The racing programme of the fair
will probably be the most attractive
feature. The management is offering
$10,000 in pemiums and the payment
of thoin is guaranteed by the bank in
which the monoy of the association is
deposited. This will attract to the
fair some of the best horses in the
slate,
"On the 14th the Elks will dedicate their new temple, whicli thoy
recently completed at a cost of Sil.',,ono
and which is far the linest lodge
tuilding in the state. Or. that occasion the Spokane herd of the Heat
People on Earth will give a banquet
to the visiting Kins from till over the
country and arrangements are made
to accommodate- 100'J members of the
order.
"We have reason to believe that
there will ho u large attendance of
E'ks and others piesent from Seattle.
Tho railroads have agreed on a rate of
S'l for the round trip and efforts are
being made to induce the local lodge
to take the matter up and organize a
��� urge attendance.as they did last week
for the Tacoma carnival. Last year
when they laid the corner stone of the
building there was a Considerable
attendance from Tacoma and a few
from Uoattle. Those present from
the oity expressed their regret that
their lodge did not make a better
showing and it is   probable   that they

there can lie no excuse for the deliberate infraction of thc law. It is a pity
lhat there is at present no club or
association iu Nelson which could
take hold of a matter of this kind and
bring the offender to justice. Snch a
despicable act deserves severe punishment, as it works a great hardship on

LADY AUDLEY'S SECEET.
A Play With Little in it Produced
Last Night.
If tlie Stuttz company had opened
heir engagement at the opera house
by endeavoring to unravel "Lady
Audley's Secret" they would have had
small houses for the rest of the week.
The h'ist two performances were good
anil showed tbe strength of the company hut the one last night had absolutely nothing to commend it except
the acting of Miss Anderson who was
the only one well cast. She is a
capable actress and was decidedly
clever in her part. Mr. Stult/ was
away out of his element and Mr. Olmi
was only indifferent in his part. M.
Qauthler came out in the first act and
leaning against a well, snid a whole
lot of things that nobody heard. He
gently strengthened the last three
aels by being drowned in the well in
the first, much to the delight of the
audience. Between acts Miss Beatrice
Cordon sang a pretty lullaby. She
has a very sweet mezzo-soprano voice
aud well deserve the encore she received. Mr. Ulmi's rich baritone
voice was heard to splendid advantage
in tbe "Loat Chord." Between the
first and second acts tonight he will
sing, "A Heart Bowed Down," from
Balfe'a "Bohemian Girl."
At :; o'clock this afternoon there
will be a matinee, "Fast Lynne,"
being the piece. Miss Ar.derson^should
be splendid in the leading part. The
piece underlined for tonight is
"Under tlie Gas Light," a powerful
drama which the company should
produce acceptably.

The Lane Town Inspects a Smeller and
a llofinery in the Near Future.
.1. W. Cockle, of the Kaslo hotel,
was In the city yesterday. In conversation with   a   Miner   reporter   he
said that the Kaslo S Iter,  Ltd.   wus
confident, that, work would soon start
ou the erection of a large smelting
plant on the site that the city was
giving the capitalists who wonld
finance the scheme. Tin- civic cash
bonus of ifr,n,Ullo, which is to bo handed over if the smeller is being operated by the lirst of October of next,
year, is proving a powerful inducement to capital to locate a plant at
Kaslo. Mr. Cockle claims that there
is no plaen in the Kcotcnays where a
smoter can he run to better advantage
than in Kaslo as a full supply of ore
and everything required for iluxing
can lie obtained in the immediate
neighborhood. A Irani could be
erected to carry tho lime from ft
quarry ttiat contains au inexhaustible
supply, directly to tbe smelter.
The English capitalists who show
every indication of accepting Kaslo's

A. E. Knudsen. fellow of the Theo-
sophical Society, lectured last evening
at the Miners' Union before an appreciative audience, in which wero
several clergymen. Tlie lecturer was
listened to attentively and some of
the arguments and theories which he
advanced wore both novel and interesting. The lecture was entli.lud
-'Reincarnation, or Rebirth," but in
covering tbo ground Mr. Knudsen
went over nearly the whole of the
teachings of theosuphy,
"Rebirth," he said, "presents the
only scheme i'or the evolution of being
the great law of the universe. Theosopby," he declared, ''combined the
hitherto antagonistic ideas of religion
and science. Natural law must be
one, perfect and whole, while tlieoso-
nliy must be scientific on the mateiial
plane, as well as on the spiritual
plane, and that, is why it bas drawn
the attention of thinking men in both
science and religion. The growth of
the individual is in mental and moral
strength, and this growth comes
through experience, and it is very evident that one life time does uot g've a
man all the experience nor all the
growth that the most casual observer
can see possible in the individual.
We have our grand examples of humanity,our saints and leaders, aud wo
have tbo savage of. for instance,
Central Africa. Darwin accounts for
the evolution of the physical man, but
reincarnation alone will account for
the difference in the spiritual and
moral attainments between these two
extremes. Through a long scries of
lives on this planet, iu which tho individual gains experience, interspersed
with a similar, series of lives in the
heaven world, in which these experiences are pondered and assimilate, tho
individual finally reaches the poinf. in
which there is nothing moie for him
to learn on this globe; that is, there
is no question of morality or fact in
nature that his intelligence does not
fully understand. The end of his
terrestiai development only opens the
door to some grandor life iu some
other sphere. In this growth of moral
and mental worth we can see no end,
und get a glimpse of a necessary immortality. Such is the ideal that
theosopby presents to mankind as an
aim and object in life. This world,
the school and the experiences wo pass
through in it is that which is most
necessary for our programs, Theoso-
phy combats no religion, and no truth
seeker can liud himself hound or
hampered in any way by dogma. No
one is asked te accept theosopby except in so far as it appeals to his intelligence, but inpresenting a natural
law, an all-embracing law, it tries to
show forth a God for Love, whose
compassion can leave no one out, for
the lowest can evolve to the highest,
and there i.; all the timo necessary
for -tho slowest to finish the race.
Tho great hope of the theosophist is to
see every religion understood and
lived up to by its devotees,''
Mr. Knudsen will remain in the
eity uutil Monday. He is tin- guest
of F. W. 1'ettit, South Kootenay
street, whero he will be pleased to
meet those genuinely interested in
theosopby.
