Eleventh  Year
American Sheet Stfcel Company   Trying  to   Work
Non-Union   Men.
Preparing for Rear-Admiral
Schley's Court of Inquiry Session.
Pittsburg, Pa., July 21.��� Two
moves, it is reported were made by
thu aggressive officials of the American Sheet Steel Co. today towards
breaking up the strike. One was the
shipping of some of the non-union
men that have been employed in the
Vandergrift mills of the company to
Wellsville to assist in the starting of
the plant there. It was stated that
the men were to be shipped to Wellsville during the early evening and
would reach there alter \lark. As a
consequence of this report, there is a
suppressed excitement prevailing in
Wellsvlle which at any moment may
break out into a serious affair, lloth
Sttikere, and officials of the company
aro on the alert and ready for any
emergency. The impression is strong
tonight that the general officers of the
United States Steel Corporation huve
heciiine determined on tho subject of
early breaking up the strike and toul-
tiiutcly force the operation of all the
Idle plants.
Tho second move that is understood
tn havo been initiated today, is the
starting of the long idle Hyde Park
plant of the American Sheet Steel Co.
This piant was taken into the com
bine with objectionable contracts
made by the former owners nnd has
remained idle since the American
Sheet Steol Co. took hold of the property. The long idleness of this mill
hus caused most of the men formerly
employed thereto leave Hyde Park
for other places and tbo company believes there will bo less difficulty in
starting thiB plant than where tbe
Amalgamated Association has control.
Pittsburg, Pa., July 24.���At the
Amalgamated headquarters, the two
leading officials of tbe association
were absent during the greater part
of the day. It was stated that Pres!-
dent Shaffer wus away on personal
business. The absence of Secretary
John Williams was also accounted
for in tho same manner The confer-
once held on Tuesday nignt which
kept President Shaffer and Secretary
Williams out until curly this morning remains as mysterious as before.
Whatever the object of the meeting,
it is believed to have continued today
and much of importance is expected
to be developed from the conference.
Thc question of the manufacturers
securing injunctions against the
association was discussed guardedly
during the day. Those best acquainted with the feelings of the manufacturers say there is in their opinion
littlo cause for believing that such
harsh measures will be resorted to at
this time.
Washington, 1). C, July 24.���Secretary Long, in accordance with a request from Admiral Schley, today advised that he would order a court of
inquiry to examine into the entire
mutter. Later tlie secretary announced that oviing to the extremely hot.
weather, the court would not meet
until September and that he would
turn over his reception room to the
court. The secretary said: "It is
the hot season now and I do not believe it would bo verv comfortable for
officers ta sit in their heavy full
dress uniforms during August. I issued an order some time ago dispensing with tho wearing of full diess
uniforms during a court martial but
this*.case will bo so important that
every form of official dignity will
ho observed, and a guard will be at
the door. I propose to give the court
the use of the large reception room
adjoining my office which is a convenient and commodious place."
"Will tho sessions of the court be
"Unquestionably," was the emphatic reply. "1 propose to make
that fact very plain. The countrv
has the right to know all that transpires in tbo way of testimony offered. Personally, I would be  very   glad
to have a court composed of a large
number of officers, but the naval reg-
| ulutions restrict me to the selection
jof three. I hope to name thc personnel of the court tomorrow and this
will give the judge advocate and recorder ample time to prepare the list
0- wituosses who are to be summoned.
This list will be quite lengthy and
take some little time tb assemble the
officers here. I do not believe that
the session of the court will he prolonged, because after all a groat deal
of the talk over the Santiago campaign is like the vapor genii, which
can be condensed into a small bottle."
"Will Admiral Schley he allowed to
name witnesses?"
"Admiral Schley," was the reply,
"will be offered very opportunity for
the appearance of all the witnesses
he may desire. He Is al6o entitled un
der tho naval rgulations to be represented by counsel."
While Secretary Long was not asked whether thc court of iuquiry would
bo asked to form and submit an opinion upon the facts disclosed by investigation It is considered quite probable that tbis course  will be pursued.
Unless the order convening the
court expressly requires this opinion
to be expressed, its report will be
conlined to stating the facts found.
The  Body of D. J. Beaton
Laid to Rest in Nelson
Lunatic   Kills One Man and  Fatally
Wounds Three.
Leavenworth, Kansas, July 24.���
Michael Kelly in a fit of insanity to
day shot four men of whom one has
died and tho other three nre probably
fatally injured. Tbe vicims are, John
Oarrctt, prominent business man;
Police Sergeant Dodge, Detective
Mike McDonald, Dr. Chas. McGee.
McDonald alone is expectedjto recover. Kelly, harboring a fancied wrong,
entered Garret's office unannounced
this afternoon and without warning
level'od a pistol at Garrett who sat at
his desk Five shots resounded
through the building in quick succession each bullet taking effect in Garrett's body. Garrett fell from his
chair. Dodge.and MoDonald hurried
to the scene. Kelly bad reloaded
his revolver and when the officers
entered the ofiice he turned upon
them. Sergt. Dodge was shot through
the throat and Detective McDonald
received [a. bullet in the leg. A moment later, Dr. McGee, summoned to
attend Garrett, stepped into the offioe.
Kelly raised his revolver and as the
physician turned to summon help,
Kelly flred. One bullet struck McGee
in the back near the spine. The whole
affair consumed five minutes. Other
officers finally arrived, overpowered
Kelly and placed him in jail.
Several years ago Kelly made an
assault on Garrett's father and today
he evidently mistook John R. Garrett
for the older Garrett and attempted
to repeat the assault. Garrett died
late this afternoon at the hospital.
Later���Besides the fcur above mentioned the lunatic also shot two other
men, Joe Falthafuger. shot through
the hands, and Ike Kealer in the
hand. Kelly died at the hospital tonight from wounds received during
the fight with the officers.
So far the citizens of Nelson are
behaving very well during the absence
of the magistrate. Yesterday there
were no cases before the police court
aud tho duties of the mayor have, so
far, not boen materially increased on
dealing out local justice.
The now pipe organ at St. Saviours
church was used for the first time yesterday at the funeral service of the
late Mr. D. J. Beaton, and under the
skilful manipulation of Mrs. W. J.
Astley,judging by the many favorable
comments afterwards expressed,   gave
complete satisfaction.
The Foresters held an ice cream social last evening at Fraternity Hall
at which a large number of the members of the lodge and their lady
friends were present. Owing tb the
affair happening on the same night
as the Knights of Pythias excursion
some who otherwise wonld have attended the social were unable to be
present. Rio. Rurkholder presided,
supported by Bros. Little, Deacon and
Ruff. Dr. Hawkey looked after the
instrumental part of the programme
and rendered a number of acceptable
selections on the piano. Songs were
given by Messrs. French, Dyer and
Ruff. At tho close of the programme
refreshments wre served, terminating a pleasant and well spent evening.
Numerous Friends Attended
the   Solemn   Service,
Floral Tributes,
Yesterday aftornoou the last sad
rites were performed over, and the
last tribute of respect paid to all that
remain of the^late D. J. Beaton, who
until four days ago occupied the editorial chair of The Miner, and directed its editorial utterances, and thc
sudden and sad termination of whose
life has come with such a shock to
his friends in particular, and the
community in general.
At half past two o'clock the seating
accommodation at St.Saviour's church
was taken up and the solemn burial
service of the Episcopal church was
proceeded with by the Rov. H.S. Akehurst, rector of the church. The service was most impressive and whon
the organist, Mrs. Astley, pioceeded
to play the Dead March in Saul, there
wi! scarcely a dry eye in the building. As the sad and solemn procesion
slowly made its way from the church
at the conclusion of the service, the
evidences of respect for the deceased
and sympathy for the bereaved, were
most maiked and unmistakeable.
The pall Deaiers were Messrs. V.
Burnett, Geo. Kydd, Hugh Cameron,
W. A. Macdonald, D. A. McFarland
and H. Bird. Quite a number of citizens followed the cortege, until it
reached the oorner where it, turned
off to the cemeteiy road. The procession was then continued preceded by
the minister, and the mourners, followed by The Miner staff and a number of friends in carriages and on foot
to the cemetery, where the final services were read and the body committed to the grave.
The floral tributes of respect and
sympathy, which covered the casket,
were numerous and of very artistic
design. Among those most noticeable
was a large wreath with the incrip-
tion "Father," from Mr. and Mrs. K.
C. Beaton and W. W. Beaton; a
wreath adorned with a quill and
shears and the figures "30," from the
employees of The Miner; a cross of
sweet peas from Mr. and Mis. W.
A. Macdonald; a wreath of roses and
carnations from Miss McConnon; a
wreath of roses from Ernest Mansdeld,
and other flowers from Mr. and Mrs.
Fred Burnett, Mr. and Mrs. S. S.
Taylor, Mr. and Mrs U. D. Hume.Mr.
and Mrs. William J. McNab, Mr.
and MrB. Frank Tamblyn, Mr. and
Mrs. Melville Parry, Dr. and Mrs.
Armstrong, and Mr. Hugh Cameron.
In addition to tho above there wero a
number of other lloral emblems with
no cards attached.
Thought a Doorstep Better For Babies
Than Drowning.
Toronto, July 24.���Mrs. Mary
O'Rourke, arrested a few days ago on
a charge of making a business of leaving babies on door steps was convicted this morning on three charges. In
the witness box she admitted that she
had disposed of egbt, children that
way. She gave this as explanation
in one case: The mother, a young
girl, was to pay her $8 a mouth for
keeping the ohild. She paid $4 and
then disappeared. "I would not keep
the haby without being paid," said
Mrs. O'Rourke, and it was better to
leave it on a door step than throw
it into the bay."
Suffolk, N. Y., July 34.���It was announced this afternoon at the ollice of
Superintendnt Dudge of the Dele-
ware, Lackawanna railway that the
Strike of the machinists employed by
the company had been declared off and
that the strikers were applying for reinstatement.
Gorderick, Ont., July 24.���Captain
William Gundry left this afternoon to
join the West African Mounted Constabulary in which he has secured an
appointment. He was given a send

Arrival of the Canadian Representative In the Race
Around the World.
Conditions Under Which the
Fishermen's  Strike
Was Settled.
Victoria, July 24.���Lorenzo Prince,
travelling around the world, in a
race for La Presse, Montreal, arrived by steamer Rio Jun Marti. He left
Montroal on May 27th and going via
New York to Cherbourg and through
Euiope to Moscow whence via trans-
Asiatic to Manchuria and not going
via Amur, he proceeded by Manchurian railway now under construction,
being forced to use horses, 172 being
used to make 400 miles between section to Vladivstock. Thence he went
to Nagaski and by rail to Yokohama
whore he caught the steamer for Victoria. He is now out 58 days. He
leaves for Vancouver en route home
tonight. Iu Manchuria he saw signs
of unrest and sayBjtbat Southern Manchuria is in a state of insurrection and
Russian officers are powerless to stop
it. Ho says the Manchurian railway
is solely a military project for nothing in commerce of that province justifies it. Forty thousand Chinese
are working on it.
Victoria, July 24.���Ou the Idzum
Maru which docked here this morning
from Japan is Lorenzo Prince, the
Canadian newsboy,who is representing
La Presse ol Monti eal, in the race
round the world against Paris paper
men. Prince started one week after
Fitzmaurice who reached here last
Tuesday and hence has equalled If he
bas not beaten Hearst's time, notwithstanding that Hearst violated the
original understanding that no spec-
ul train or boat was to be ohurtered.
The energetic newsboy had a most
exciting trip. At Chak he and bis
partner, August Marcon, were detained by tho authorities owing to two
Frenchmen having stolen 8000 roubles,
the previous day and consequently
officials had been ordered to delay all
foreigners. Prince secured his release
through tho good offices of the oom-
mandant's wife who understood
French, but Marcon having surrendered the passports was not so lucky,
and Prince does not know whether
he is still detained or not. He was
forced also to negotiate a three miles
gap on the Manchurian railway on
horseback and through a country
swarming with Chinese bandits, who
had just before his arrival attacked a
body of Russians. He'came through
safe thanks to his two revolvers although he had 2,000 dollars on him.
Prince goes o?er to the mainland
tonight, and thence east as fast as the
Imperial Limited will carry him.
His modest behavior is in marked contrast to the swagger of the Hearst
Victoria, July 24.���The Lieutenant-
Governor is in receipt of information
that the Royal visit to Victoria will
be for one day instead of as formerly
proposed. As residences have been
hired and other arrangements are far
advanced strong representations will
be made to have the original programme adhered to.
Victoria, July 24.��� The survey of
Hope mountains lias beon placed under Edgar Dewdney. The survey parties will be under C, F. Hannington,
C. E., and C, E. Peny, C. E.
Vancouver, B. C, July 24.���The
terms of the agreemont.by which the
big fishermen's strike was settled tbis
week is in some respects rather
The agreement is to the effect that
the flsliermen shall receive 12 oents
for the first fourth of the pack put up,
and 10 cents for the remaining three-
fourths of the pack.
The canners on the Eraser river propose to put up 1,000,000 exclusive of
the pack of northern British Columbia
If they find tho fish are coming in
loo fast and there is a dangei of exceeding thut number (if they should
pack all the fish offered) they have the
privilege under the agreement of limiting the take to 200 to the boat.    An
other clause in the agreement Is that
union fishermen shall not be diserimi-
naed againsl (which has reference to
tho fact that several union fishermen
are in jail fur lawlessness Indulged
in during the strike). At first glanoe
it is difficult to see how the Hansen
are to successfully carry out tho arrangement regarding thu division of
the pack and the price pur fish to be
paid to each fishermen. The plau,
however, Is comparatively simple
Each fishermen after signing an agreement with the cannery he fishes for is
allowed to demand any sum be wishes
per fish delivered, up to lo cents.
Aoccunts are kept with all tbo 4,000
fishermen, the Japanese being recorded .by the number of their license, uud
all money paid to their boss man.
Any money drawn is debited ugainsst
them in their accounts, and if a mun
signs an agreement with two canneries he is blacklisted at once. For it
is often that a fisherman gets an advance from one cannery and should he
make no attempt to pay this advance
with fish but signs with another cannery, he is practically boycotted by all
the canneries. At the end of the
season the canneries and fishermen
ohoose each a representive aud these
two representatives choose a third.
This committee determine at what
rate one third ot the total number of
fish were delivered to the canneries
and on which 13J_ cents is to be paid,
as every fisherman has opposite his
name the number of fish he delivered
to the different canneries and when be
delivered them and what advances ho
has had, the rest is easy.

Vancouver, July 24.���Steamship

The Atlantic Transport company
and the friend so Bernard N. Baker,
president of tne company ure generally very inidgnant. C. E. Torrcy,
managing director of thu Atlantic
Transport Co., today expressed himself as more than surprised tu see
King Edward has been misinformed
regarding the actual donor of the
Maine, and suid what surprised him
still more was that the ladios accepted the thanks of the King for the gilt,
knowing well that at no time had
they owned tho ship and that President Haker alone was entitled to any
thanks. Mr. Tcrrey said Mr. Baker
was not even informed of the intention to present this medal to the king
nor up to toilay had any intimation
been conveyed to him that such a presentation had occurred, nor has any
expression of regret beer, made that
tbis understanding occurred as to the
donor of the vessel. "The whole
transaction is on a par with the seizure of tho Maine's flag by Mrs. Gcoige
Cornwallis-West," said Mr. Torrcy,
"who appropriated the emblem prc-
sonted by tho late Queen Victoria to
the vessel. It will not surprise us if
this flag is now presented with oqual
eclat to Queen Alexandria. Throughout there has been au utter lack of
apreciation on the part of some of tbo
Maine's coiniuittoe of Mr. linker's
assistance and with upparcnt deliberation the committeee has taken unto
itself the regal thanks for whioh it
has no shadow of a claim."

Under tbe bending of "Middle of
the [load Journalism" the Toronto
World, an out and out Conservative
organ, gives independent papers the
following severe Caetlgation:
"If a newspaper were anxious to
market its editorial opinion for the
highest available price it would pose
at an 'independent.' Its attitudedur
ing tbOBe periodi when there is no
market foi cditoiial opinions would
bo lhat of the genuine independent
newspaper. It would take a thrust,
8rst at one party, then at the other,
now one again at his antagonist.
The newspapei that poses an in 'it-
dependent' for the mercenary value
thnt attaohes to such a profession
always keeps in the middle of tho
road when it has not been retained.
"On the eve of an approaching eloc-
tioa, or nf a contest of any kind ir
which editorial opinion has a marketable value, no one could tell on which
side suoh nn independent paper
would range itself. It can go to the
right haud or to the left hand with
out exciting any surprise. A party
paper like tbe lllolie, alw ._���_ '"avels
along one side of the stieet. You
never find it on the opposite side
The 'independent' paper tbat poses as
such and that cultivates au 'inde
pendent' reputation for the money
that is in it varies its course along the
middle of tlie road by turning now to
the right, now to the left, according
to the market for opinions. But
characteristic feature of tho profes-
faioual iiiiiepik-ndent paper is that it
always gets buck t'i the middle of the
road This traveling in the middl
seems to be the very essenco of
shrewdness. Tbe newspaper can turn
to either side without wrenching its
convictions, while it is in a position
to sell its editorial utterances to any
one who may pay the price. The paper retains both its reputation and
finds a profitable market for its opinions. Therein consists the shrewdness
of the papi-r tbat makes a profession
of travelling in the midd'e of the
"Exclude indi'pendence from the
public press or suspend the mdepend
ent papers and what is tho value of
criticism or comment? Independence
in politics as in any thing else presupposes honesty and disinterestedness and these two taken away comment and criticism eininating from
such sources has not as much value as
comment from a parti/an. oigan. If
therefore a non-partisan paper maintains itself in its positions from a
mercenary motive it violateB the fundamental principle of independence,
but if it discusses public matters for
the benefit of a non-partizan class and
as their organ, as well as broadening
the ideas ot partizans of both sides
who will read a neutral but not an
opponent paper then it is performing a most commendable and lofty
duty to the Btate.
An independent paper stanils in a
diilicult place and certainly has to
contend with extraordinary difficulties
on tho one band and unusual temptations on tlie other. Xo broad-iuinded
person denies the value of independence yet few will encourage it to tho
extent of a single dollar. And in
view of the difficulties of thc position
and of the apathy of the public true
independence not only requires and
reveals honor but B largo amount of
courage and firmness us well.
The  announcement of  the death of
Mr. Donald J. Beaton came as a
shuck to the citizens of Nelson. Although past middle age, deceased bud
every reason to hope that he would
live for many yeais to come. Mr.
Beaton was known throughout Canada ns un able journalist, and waB
h.ld in high esteem by his intimate
associates as a man iif sterling worth.
It is scarcely fair to judge him by
his journalistic work in Nelson for
the field was strange to nini, and it is
not to his discredit to say that he was
never able t.i master the intricacies of
British Columbia politics. Others have

larger field of 1-Yderal politics be was
perfectly at home, and his discussions
on this theme were always virih,. and

bereaved family its deepest sympathy.���Nelson   Economist.
It is v? ith feelings of great regret
that the people of this section of tbe
province will learn of the untimely
death of D. J. Beaton, for a number
of years past editor of the Nelson
Miner. The shocking manner in
which he parted with his life is particularly painful intelligenOH to bis
many friends and acquaintances and
to his fellow journalists who knew
him personally or by reputation. Mr.
Beaton was a journalist of the old
school. He was fiiBt of all a gentleman, and he chose gentlemanly methods in tin' conduct of the editorial
columns of tbo different newspapers
over which he at various times presided In his time one of tho ablest journalists in Canada, Canadian journalism has suffered a distinct loss
through his untimely demise.���Boss-

Iiillicnlty About Right of Way Has
l!e,en Settled.
Marcus Wash., July 34.-A large
force of graders with teams began
making tbe road bed yesterday on the
north side of the Columbia opposite
this plane, Tbis is tlie lirst grading
whicli lias been none on the fiist section of the roa~. Grading will soon
ucl,;n lull blast all along tbe line. A
small fcroe of men began clem ing
tlie right of way through the limits of
,is for the track siding, depot
V," Worn will be commenced
, a few days on the grading for the
southern approach lo the bridge
which is to span the Columbia. To
reach tlio proper grade, a long 0nl mi
about 17 fed will be required;
Some little delay lias heen occasional in tbo work on one portion of tho
first seotion of the railroad line out
friini Marcus.
The line crosses some of the Indian
Allotments and the work of clearing
iglit   of   way   was    commenced
��� ~mt-�� rawest
! the
through these lands. The right at
lirst to cross these allotments extend-
| ed only to the privilege of surveying
the lino across the lands and merely
locating the route
Until tlio right of way was secured
through the lmliau agent and department of the intmior, nothing further
was allowed. When it was known that
the roilioad men were cutting down
the timber and clearing the track, an
order was issued to stop nt once until
the preliminaries were arranged.
Another order has just been issued
fiom the department of the interior
dlreotlng the forces all along the
line to proceed at oneo with the work
of clearing the right of way through
these allotments, and also of grading.
This older was very gratifying news
to all the contractors, for it now sig-
nilics that the right of way has been
obtained across ull these Ii dian lands
and that there will be no further delay.

A civilian named Finnick has. been

returned fiom the Ainsworth district,
says the Spokane Chronicle, where he
has been making a technical survey
and report of the Albion property.
He has been engaged in tbe work
about three weeks and makes his report to the stockholders today. In
speaking of the mining conditions
Mr. Strobeek said: "Since my laBt
visit, some three months ago, I nnd
conditions much ohanged in the Ainsworth mining division of Hritish Columbia. Tho legislature tbe past
session left, the mining laws atri.tly
alone, for which they aro to be commended. The bonus granted for a refinery, which will probably be built
at Nelson, and the certainty of a mint
at Ottawa, with the probable building of one or more smelters at convenient points, have given a general
feeling throughout all the camps of
coming prosperity."
LondoD, July 24.��� A complete

New York, July 24.���About 0.20
o'clock a number of the vertical supporting cablos of tho Brooklyn bridge
pulled out of their sockets and are
now dangling in the air. The accident happened at the north side of
tbe New York end of the bridge and
this end sagged from four to six.
inches. This completely stopped all
street car traffic over the structure
but later, after temporary delay pedestrians and wagons were allowed to
proceed. What caused tho pulling
out of the vertical cables is not
known. The accident caused great
excitement and the police reserves
were called out. It is rumored that
the exceptionally hot weather caused
the trouble.

Word was received in the city yesterday to the effect that Jack .McFarland was dead at Movie, and enquiring for his brother, Irving, wbo is
supposed to he in this vicinity, and
is requested to communicate with the
authorities at Moyie at once. The
deceased is one of Nelson's old timers and is well known In these parts.
He was formerly employed at the Juno
mine, where be worked for the pei-
iod nl two years.
A number of the Nelson sports are
complaining of the amount of sawdust
which is aocumulatlngln the lake near
Nelson at present. Some people
appear to be unaware of the fact thai
such proceedings, besides being detrimental to the noble .sport of angling,
is death to the lish urd punishable by
law. Yesterday .-mil the last few
days there bas heen a large amount
of sawdust along the lake front to
tlni no small annoyance of the disciples of Isaac Walton.
The hot weather experienced during the past few days will
doubtless do considerable in
adding to the numbers of those who
will take in tbe cool sail today with
~t. Saviour's .Sunday school to Procter
on their annua! picnic. The archery
contest is evoking considerable interest, and tbe other sports provided will
also be very good. For first prize in
the archery a handsome silk umbrella
will be awarded, and for second prize
11 pockct.book. Those who are unable
to go In the morning should take advantage of the 1.80 steamer, which
will allow   for a  cool afternoon trip.
According lo the statement of The
Tribune of yesterday morning, The
Miner was in error in stating iu a
previous issue thai Mr, J. A. Turner
was acting mining recorder in the
absence of Harry Wright. Unfortunately, for some reason, The Miner is
unable to secure information on such
mutters that aie apparently available
to other dailies, und very naturally
erred in assuming tbat .-.tich was the
case. No one had been gazetted to
dlsoharge the duties of mining recorder and In addition to this since
.Mr. Wright's absence, tbe records
have been signed by the Cold Commissioner,  Mr. .1.  A. Turner.
The Knights of Pythias bad a very
pleasant time last evening cn their
moonlight excursion. About 9
o'clock the local members of the order
marched through the city dressed iu
tbeir uniforms. 'Ihey were proceeded
by the II. M. 1!. band, who discoursed
musical selections on the march.
About three hundred took in the excursion. Dancing was kept np until
the Moyie' arrived from Kootenay,
1.nniiing to bring the excursionists I
bajk   to   the  city.    After   delivering J
her living cargo, the Nelson, which
took them to the plonio grounds, immediately returned to the city and
left shortly afterwards on ber regular
trip to tbe lauding.
The mainline train of the C. P. R.
last evening, was 34 hours late and
failed to connect with the Crow's Nest

is so far progressing in things terres-

that in the fall tbey will take a trip
to the west and will make Nelson
one of their stopping off places.
Tne death by accident in Nelson on
Sunday of Donald J. lieaton, editor
of The Miner, removes from this life
one of the oldest journalists in Canada. For many year ho was conned-
ed with tho press 0/ Manitoba, coming to NelHon in islis. To die at any
time is sad foi those left behind, but
when the messenger of death reaches
a man vigorous in health it makes
the biow all the harder to bear.

Something in the nature of sensation occurred ut the last meeting of
the city council,which has bo far been
unreported. Early in the evening
one of the rooms in the city hall was
found to be locked. Later in the evening it was found necessary to visit
tbe room with the result that the door
wus stilt found to be locked. Some
curiosity was felt and the council and
the reporters Were formed into a committee of the whole to investigate. It
wus found that the catch ou the lock
was slipped from the inBlde. Rut as
no person was to be found on the in
side, it was thought that one of_ the
prisoners in the lockup had arranged
this as a plan of escape, as it was
shown that any person knowing
enough could with little difficulty
climb up from tbe cells into thc door
joists and thence into the roof, and by
hiding in this manner, could, after
the coast was clear make tbeir escape
through the iron bars on the windows
of the city hall. The chief of police
examined tbe matter on the following
o.:v with the result that he found
that he could fasten the door in the
same way every time from the outside,
The result ot the affair will be that
a new look will be provided for the
door, or the old one will be fixed so
as to avoid a repetition of tbe annoy
