JUGGLING WITH FIGURES.
Official Receiver Makes Statement
About London and Globe Assets.
London, Deo. 21.���During a meeting of the creditors of tbe London and
Globe corporation, Mr. Uorst anounc-
ed that tbe unsecured liabilities
amounted to ��1,142,000, witb asseti. of
��420,000. At a subsequent meeting
of tbe shareholders, Mr. Barnes said
there would be nothing left. Apparently none of the directors, with the
exception of Whltaker Wright, knew
anything of tbe enormous transactions
of the corporation. The balance sheet
for ltOO was a work of art. Some of
the entries made inflated the assets io
��170.000, und within a few days gold
estate shares previously valued at
��200,000, appeared at ��764,000. Of
tbe reserve ��500,000 has been absorbed,
but there was nothing to show of the
surplus cash in the bank; ��25,000 had
been hired from a broker for two days
for ��5,000. With thc exception of Mr.
Wright, who had netted a profit of
��50,000 in the Le Roi No. 2, none ol
the directors bad profited in the corporation's speculation. Mr. Barnes
also said tbat the British America
corporation, which held a large number of LeRois, wns, as usual, made
to act the part of Cinderella and sold
none of them.
Dealing with the balance sheet, Mr.
Barnes showed bow a certain sum nf
��250,000, first figured as an asset on
the balance sheet of the London and
Globe company, then ou the balance
sheet  of the British America Corpora
tion, then again on the balance sheet
nl the London and Globe company,

Growth of Militarism. '
Montreal. Deo. 21. ���Henri Hourassa,
M. P., for I.ubelle. in an article over
his own signature in Le l'ionnier.
gives his views on the sending of
third Canadian contingent to South
Africa Hourassa says be will endeavor
to have all the papers on the subjeot
brought before parliament at its next
Bession. The government, he adds,
oannot make the plea this time of
popular demand. They are under the
pressure of Downing street. It is not
merely the levying of troops for
South Afri-a, it is the Inauguration in
Canada of a permanent and regular
system of recruiting for tbe British
army. The British government,
Hourassa says, is organizing the
loyalty of the colonies. The sending
of this force is mo'a serious from the
point of view of onr future than the
sending of the two first contingents.
It is sought to show that the sending
of this new force is without importance, as England boars all tlie cost,
but have we really reached such a
point of ignominy that the question
of dollars and cents is of more inipuit-
ance in our eyes than the dignity and
independence of our country. Hourassa says he will not speak of the
moral responsiblity of engaging in an
Odious war, which has revolted the
conscience of mankind.
COLONIST COULD DO IT.
nad They Been Given Free Hand tho
War Would Be Over Now.
London, Dec. 21.���A sp��cial cable
from New Zealand announces that
Premier Seddon, in an address to the
returned soldiers severely condemned
the war office methods and said that
if the colonists had been given tree
hand the war would have been over by
now. As it was, if the British army
was wanted elsewhere, as might soon
be the case, the war could be easily
finished by (JanaJa and other colonies.
DEWET REAPPEARS
Attacks a British Column Hut Repulsed With Loss.
Harrismith, Orange River Colony,
Dec. 21.-The flrst fight in which
Gen. Dewet has figured for some time
is reported to have ocourred at Lang-
berg, Dec. 18th. It was rather a
fiasco considering tbe recent ominous
reports regarding the noted general's
rejuvenated commando. Dowet with
800 men and two guns clashed with
Generals Dartnell and Campbell.
After a four hours' fight the Boers
drew off, with a loss of four killed
and twenty wounded. The British
loss was one killed and fourteen
wounded.

COAL FAMINE IN OHIO.
Cleveland, Ohio, Deo. 21,���A coal
famine developed bore today and
unless there Is a marked rise in temperature within the next 48 hours
much suffering will result. A number of manufacturing plants will close
Monday unless fuel can be seiured.
Practically all the dealers repurt their
stores of both bard and soft coal exhausted, and owing to inability of
the railways to meet the demands
made upon tbem, there is little prospect of early relief.
Tempestuous Meeting of the
Shareholders    In
Paris.
M. Hulln Resigns to Facilitate   the   Negotiations.
Paris. Deo. 21.���Get the United
States to buy the canal at any price
in order to save our money, seemed to
be the prevalent feeling and gist of
the speeches at today's meeting uf
the Panama Canal company's shareholders.
About 250 shareholders were present,
including a number of ludicB. In the
absence of M. Hulln a shareholder
presided. A storm oroke immediately
after the report Had been read. Tho
shareholders were greatly excited by
the news that M. Hnlin had resigned
and demanded explanations of what
had occurred at the meeting df tha
board at which lie had resigned. The
chairman's delay in replying to questions let! to vituperations which weie
launched at the hands of the directors
by several sharebholders whose modest
attire indicated that they* had been
severe sufferers on account of the
Panama failure.
Eventually the proe��edings degenerated into such a tumult that policemen were summoned to expel one if
the noisest of the shareholders who
approached the director's table,
thumped it with his fist, yelled at tbe
top ot his voice and shook a handful
of papers in the face of the chairman.
The iulrusion of the policeman raised
such a pandemonium that tbey felt
compelled to withraw. The few
speakers who secured bearing urged
the adoption of the board's proposals
as being the shareholder's only salvation. One speaker said it was palpably impossible fur tbe company to
finish the canal as it could not raiso
money anywhere in France or ln the
rest of Europe. He added that a
shareholder, M. Runau Varllla, wbo
bad published an appeal to the shareholders and others at the beginning of
the year to contribute funds to carry
on the work, secured promises of only
200,000 francs.
Others speakers appealed to the
meeting to cease the tumult; tbat the
moment was decisive iu regard to the
fate of their many millions. Finally
the chairman rose and made a statement whioh southed his heurc-s. He
said there was no contradiction in
the resignation of M. Hulln and tho
expressiouB of appreciation of bis
labors contained in his report. The
board bad considered tbe situation
resulting from tbe Isthmian commissioner's decision and had come to the
conclusion that a change of policy was
needed. T'-ey, therefore, made the
proposition continued in the report
but it was thought tiiat the negotiations with the United States might
run smoother without M. Iliilin, tho
latter resigned. The meeting,appeased
by this explanation, then approved of
the propositions mute in the report.
ASPECT GETTING SERIOUS.
War Parties of Argentina and Chile
Seem iu the Ascendant.
Buenos Ayres, Dec. 21. ���It appealed
this evening that the "Chilean incident," as the trouble between Argentina anil Chile is referred to here bas
unexpectedly assumed a more serious
aspect. The Tribunu, the official
organ of the government admits that
the I'lii-nM Esperanzaquesth-n,instead
of approaching a settlement, is becoming graver and that the Chilean government is now In danger of allowing itselr to be influenced by a group
of doctrimries. Tlio feeling here Is
no logrier optimistic. It ia asserted
that if Chile does not change her exacting attitude at once, a rupture
between the two countries will take
place.

VIEWS    OF    A TITLED PRISONER.
Earl Russell, who recently finished
a term in an English prisou on a con-
ivcion for bigamy, lias given his views
on juils nnd the conclusions which he
draws from inson life to the public
With all the alleviations allowed to a
first class misdemeanant, he says, life
wai astonishingly dull. "You have
nothing to think of nothing to begin,
and nothing to finish all day long."
It was very wearying and bo was sure
it must get on the nerves of the prisoners under long sentence*. Under
the monotony of it ordinary prisoners
wsre bound to deteriorate mentally
very much, fie believed that the diet
was both good aod sufficient, but the
ereroisc was not exercise at all.
Something, of course, must be done
with confirmed criminals, but ordinary offenders weie not likely to be
turned out of prison better men. For
such people, be held, there was absolutely no sense about the prison
system. It was not good discipline,
nor good training, nor did it improve
a man in any way.
There is nothing new about tho
views of the Earl Bussel of the prison
Bystem, as in different words similar
criticisms and deductions have been
made by a number who have given
penology Their attention. There is
something lamentably wrong about
the entire system not only of Great
Britain bat of tlie other civilized
nations. When society takes hold of a
man, locks him np for a few months
or a few years, as the case may be,
as a duty to itself it should endeavor
when it releases him to have him in
better moral condition and abler
to make a living for himself than
when his term of imprisonment commenced. The contrary is the result as
the prisoner deteriorates mentally
morally and physically during his
term or terms of imprisonment. The
unmistakcable prison brand is upon
a man once be serves a term in gaol
and unless he is above the average in
strength of character be never succeeds in effacing it. There is much
room for reform, much room for improvement in prisons and there is a
life work for many earnest souls to
evolve plans and in praclioal work by
which individuals imprisoned can be
made better while they are in confinement f��r their transgressions. Society
is thc loser by not doing this, for
once an individual becomes a habitual
criminal he or she as long as they live
prey upon mankind either in jail or
out of it and it is to the interest of all
that the criminal be reformed by
teaching him that honesty is the best
polioy, by making him learn some
handicraft by which he can moke a
living, and by endeavoring to encourage and eustain him in his reform
after he is released until he can get
on the right road. This is a matter of
greater moment to Christendom than
even the conversion of the heathen
and oi.e would think it would he more
alluring to those who love their follows and who devote their lives tn
good vrork than any which they could
take up.
A DEA 11LY DISEASE.
The staffs of lifn insurance companies are well informetd as to the
causes whicb shorten human life as
they keep tbeir fingers constantly on
the public pulse, watch closely the
symptoms and outcome:-, of disease,
because it is a part of their business
to do so. A meeting was held a few
nights since in Toronto of insurance
men. It was what is called the medical director's evening and fatal diseases were discussed. As nn outcome
of that meeting it was shown with
great clearness tbateonsumption is not

known wilh certainty that great
changes in the elasticity of blood vessels are found in men of 00 years, but
this lack of life and elasticity is even
noticed in men of 30, which as Dr.

says, "is a tendency which cannot be
explained in any other way than that

giddiness or one sided palsy. Sometimes the blood vessels supplying thc
heart are affected and tbe very heart
itself suffers starvation.
Taking the mortality experience of
the Mutual Life company of New
York, rcnntly published, it is found
that thc total deaths from tuberculosis
were 5,585, whereas, if all of the
deuths that might be regarded as
under the head ot arterio-aclcrosis
were grouped together the Mutual
Life would have more than double
as many deaths from tbat as from
consumption.
It is palapable therefore that this
disease of the artieriea is a great
enemy of life and has many more
victims to its credit than the white
plague. The insurance men were
silent as to thc treatment of this
dreaded menace to life.

SIGNOR MARCONI.
Signor Marconi now fills a large
space in tbe public eye for his wonderful invention of wireless tele
graphy, by means of which he recently sentjsignals across',the Atlantic
ocean,���the scientific triumph of the
day. A brief ske'eh of his career
will, thehretore, be interesting to the
readers of The Miner. Marconi was
born at Grifforc, near Bologna. Italy,
24th of April, 1874, and was educated
at Leghorn and the University of
Bologna, where he was graduated as
an electrical engineer.     Subsequently
e pursued his studies in England A
recent description ofjiis personal appearance says that ho is slender, of
an average height, and though bo iB
affable, he appears to be preoccupied.
ne hns a long aud well shaped head,
fine bright bair, and thoughtful eyes.
lie is nervous and when he smiles
wrinkles collect around his eyes and
mouth and disappear as quickly as
tbey came.
In his own account of himself he
says   that   from   his early life he has
ollowed up scientific discoveries and
was always on the track of anything
new. lie was not the original discoverer of the fact that eleotrical signals
could be sent through the air,but with
painstaking industry and energy,
while still almost a boy, he perfected
the appliances without which the discovery would have been of no use to
the wcrld. So long ago as in 1893
when bnt 10 years of age he erected
poles on his father's estate to conduct
the experiments along the lines which
have since made him famous Be has
perfected a system by which shipB can
communicate with each other at ten
miles or hundreds of miles apart.
They can communicate witb the Bhore
nheu 200 miles away from it. Messages can be also sent on the land
across wide distances without the aid
of wires. His crowning triumph is
sending of the letter S across the 1,700
miles distance between Newfoundland
and the coast of Cornwall, England.
EDITORIAL NOTE5.
Judging by the tjne of the Tribune
yesterday one would naturally conclude that it was just a trifle dissatisfied with the defeat of tbe four bylaws. The Tribune is not a graceful
loser.
Tho Vernon News apologizes for
hnving reproduced an article concerning a personal difference between an
editor and a citizen of Nelson, and
says it grossly misrepresented the
facts. Thc Vernon News in attempting to correct what <t considered to be
a misrepresentation of the trouble
between tho two gentleman makes
another error, as the Nelson Miner
never published a line concerning thc
trouble and The Vernon News
must have copied it from some
other   publication.
Protestor Shaler of Harvard discusses, in thc International, from the
geologist's view, the question of the
future supply of gold, now become the
sole btaudard for measuring values
among civilized nations and bound to
become universally so. Aftor describing the three general conditions under
which gold is found in veins or lodes,
in detritus and in subterranean rock,
he notes the rapid progress that has
been made in the procysses of extraction, so great that it costs a third
i hat it did in 1850 to extract a ton
of guld, and in the invention, among
others, of the cyanide process that

years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1

this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you bad overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a tl lal.
To my astonishment the trial aoted like a

alluvinl (iepos ts of which Mr. Shaler
expects the future greatest supply to
come. While tbere are no accurate
data on which to base precise prediction or conclusion, he thinks it is
probable that gold-benring veins are
likely, within 20 years to produce over
$500,000,000 annually, but alluvial
deposits are so much more general,
are bo widely distributed and can
now bo so successfully aod profitably
worked, that he predicts they will
furnish the greater supply. Ue instances the a red go invented in New-
Zealand, that, with labor at $2.50 a
clay and the cost of power base! on
wood at local prices, a cubic yard of
gravel can be lifted, washed, the gold
extracted and the waste discharged ut
a cost of 2 1-2 cents. He finds areas of
these deposits In North America,
South America, Russia and Australia,
and ventures an opinion that the supply from them within a few years
will exceed that from veins and deep
mining.

IN HOLIDAY ATTIRE.
Interesting   Christinas   Tableaux
Sarjta ClauB, Etc.
Large crowds gathered in front of
the show windows of the Hudson's
Hay company stores. as the display in
tho windows altracted much admiration. The window nearest the corner
is divided into three compartments in
each of which was a striking Christmas tableau In the first is found
jolly old SaDta Claus himself, with a
red fa:e and nice white whiskers and
hair. The merry old gent who is the
true friend of ah truly good children,
is seated In a sleigh, filled with toys
and drawn by a snow while Rocky
Mountain goat. The gout is neatly
harnessed and has real sleigh bells,
the kind that nrg, fastened around
his middle. Tbis is a llrst class
picture of Santa Claus, but will only
be good for this year, as in Christinas
of 11)02 he promises to make his
rounds in an automouile.
In the next compartment there is a
tableau of a little girl taking gifts
from a Christmas tree which is loaded
down with pretcy things, an occupation whicb will be filled by a large
number of good little folk before the
end of tbis week. Thc youngsters
should Inspect the window and learn
how it is done. A ladder is necessary
where the tree is very high and the
child who would secure the gifts is
small.
In the third compartment therels a
tableau in which two little children
have just awakened and Santa Claus
is seen with his head and shoulders
stuck out of a stove pipe hole in the
chimney, The little folk have fairly
caught the genial old fellow in a tight
fix and he is evidently gieatly embarrassed at the awkwardness of the situation, although he is endeavoring to
hide it by louking pleasant. Here
and r.here are scattered about in the
window are all sorts of Christmas
toys and other articles suitable for
gifts.
In the large window farther to the
east there is a display of everything
suitable for the Christmas feast, such
as oranges, nuts, raisins, citron, hon
lions, confectionery of the rarest and
finest makes and all is displayed in
tbe most tempting manner, indeed,
the display in both the windows
reflects the highest credit on those
who dressed them and arranged the
three pretty tabeanx.
Under the guidance of E. F. Qigot,
the manager of the stores, the entire
store was inspected. The ground
dimensions of the store are 00x60 feet
find there are three floors, to wit:
Hasement, ground floor and first door.
The basement is divided into differon
compartments. One portion is a
bonded warehouse, another is used for
the wholesale liquor department, and
the central department for groceries
and miscellaneous murchandise. The
ground floor is devoted to dry goods
and gents' furnishing goods, groceries, crockery and retail liquor
departments.
The flrst floor is devoted to carpets,
draperies, hats, caps, and other
departments.
The profusion of goods is wonderful
and there iB scarcely anything but
what can be pufchased here. The store
is so large, to well equipped and has
such a large stock of goods that it
would be a credit to Toronto, Ottawa
or Montreal. The stock of toys, bon
bons and Christmas goods would be
difficult to duplicate anywhere. In
the dry and furnishing goods department will be found many presents
suitable for men,women and children.
The stock of toys and dolls is 30
great and so varied as to beggar description. Fur the Christmas dinner
all of the latest and most famous
deicacies '.can be found. The wine
and liquor department has a large
stook of the mest famous brands of
liquor suitable for the cheery holiday
times. The Hudson's Bay store is
well worthy ol a visit at any time but
at present with itB manv holiday
decorations inside and out, it is more
than usually attractive.

at this distance, but the news so far

WHITE MAN TURNED YELLOW.
Great consternation was felt by the
frends of M. \. Hogarty of Lexington,
Ky., when they saw he was turning
yellow. His skin slowly changed
cobr, also his eyes, and he suffered
terribly. His malady was Yellow
Jaundice. He was treated by tbe best
dooiors, but without benefit. Then
he was advised to try Electric Bitters,
the wonderful stomach and liver
remedy, and he writes: "After taking two bottles I was wholly cured."

J, C. Drewery, of tbe True Blue, at
Kaslo, was in yesterday from a visit
to the mine. On account of the lack
of snow no shipping has been done yet
though thc ore sheds at the mine are
almost full of high grade ore. That
company is a sufferer through the
recent decline in copper In which the
thiol value of that ore is. The best
nrarle runs from 23 to 25 per cent, and
the second class from 10 to 12 per
cent, in that metal. The drop of four
cents a pound in the price of copper
therefore means to that mine that its
ore is worth about $12 a ton, averaging all of it at 15 per cent, less than
it was a few weeks ago. Shipping
will, however, be kept up steadily as
soon as the snow comes. The mine
never looked better and good pr-'gress
is being made with development
work. During the year about three
miles of trail has wen constructed
giving an easy grade from the ore
bins to Kaslo. Capacious ere sorting
sheds and all necessary buildings
have been erected.
Mr. Drewry has recently been
through East Kootenay here things
an- generally looking better than
they were in mining matters. The St.
Etigene, in which he is interested,
has a force of about SO men employed
on development work, but he is afraid j
that some of these will have to be
lait! nlf until conditions are more
settled as to prices of lead and other
contracts in consonance witli' the
altered state of affairs are entered
into.
He was two weeks ago at Marysville where good progross was being
made with the smelter buildings. A
site for the roasting ovens, 800 feet by
SOO feet, had beon cleared off and the
site for the smelter proper waB also
ready for building operations, the saw
mill wns innning and the scene was a
busy one. The mine will soon resume
development work as ore is required
before the smelter begins operations
thnt tlie supply may be blocked out
well ahead.
Un the Oreat Dane development
work is going on and the owners expect to be in position to chip as soon
as transportation fnuililtes are offered.
All the indications are good for the
1-iiii.s-iriictiiin of a railway up the St.
Marys river in tbe spring. The smelter spur, which will be the commencement of it,will soon be finished.
(Jeorge Keefer was in yesterday
from his elai .us on 49-Creek, near the
May and Jenni;. He brought in some
line specimens of free copper thowing
in the crevices of the ore whicb is apparently rioh iu copper. Other ore is
bornite aud yellow copper. He arid
his partners have done considerable
work on the claims.

HEADQUARTERS OP
Santa Claus.
This will be thc
232nd Christmas
Which this Company, who are doing business over half a continent-,
has assisted its Friends and Customers to celebrate and enjoy, and
this  is the
FOURTH CENTURY.
in which we are doing business. Our long experience and our capital
obviously give us an immense advantage in supplying the very best
vplue in everything to our patrons. This year we have made special
efforts and have now a collection of
Christmas Goods
which cannot be surpassed in any city in Canada.
Our Dry Goods Department
is well worthy of its reputation,   and is replete with  articles suitable
For Presents for Men.
Women and Children.
No pains have been spared to decorate in honor of " Good Old
Christmas," and an inspection will please you as well as enable you to
select exactly what you want at
Most Reasonable Prices,
We cannot commence to enumerate, but would draw special attention
to our
Toys and Dolls
and to our Ladies' and Gent'emen's Ties which we have in all shades,
shapes and patterns as well as to our magnificent line of Handkerchiefs in linen and silk, of Gloves of every description, including the
Paris Price Kid Gloves, and of Ladies' Blouses, etc., etc. Every conceivable article necessary or ornamental for Ladies' and Gentlemen's
attire is here to choose from. There is nothing a woman can wish for
in the way of Dress Goods that tbis department cannot, supply, and at
a saving. The very newest and most exquisite weaves and colorings
will be found in this vast collection, and the quantity will astonish you
as much as the quality and little prices.
Groceries.
With Groceries and Eatables quality is everything. Price is a
consideration, but its importance is second to that of quality. You
must have the finest and freshest foodstuffs obtainable, because it is
healthiest, because, in fact, in the long run it pays best. But when
you secure "top notch" quality at the minimum reasonable price,
nothing more can be wanted. This is the combination you obtain at
these Stores���quality the highest, prices the lowest.
Our Christmas Specialties
include a direct shipment of Peek, Frean & Co's Biscuits, Pascall's
Sweets, Rowntree's Confections, Christie's and McCormick's Fancy
Biscuits, English Plum Puddings, French Crystalized Fruits, Gor-
ganzola, Roquefort and English btilton Cheese.
Crockery, China and Glassware.
This depajtment is very complete. Dinner Sets, Tea Sets and
Bedroom Sets in all qualities and at all prices. We have a nice line
of specially selected "little things", very suitable for presents, and a
choice collection of more expensive goods for the same purpose.
Cups and Saucers, Plates, dishes, Platters, etc., of every description
and style. Fancy Glass and China Ware, genuine Cut fMass Goods,
both for use and ornament. Anything and everything required in
these lines for the kitchen and diningroom is here.
Our Wine and Liquor Department
consists of direct importations from all over the world.
DEPEND UPON IT,
you may, we can assure you. Our Liquors are worthy of every dependence. For years
and years we have been selling Liquors, and during this time we have built up a fortress
of confidence in us and our lines which is absolutely unassailable. You run no risk
in purchasing from us. The quantity and variety of Liquors which you can obtain
here are larger than you could secure elsewhere in Western Canada- so great indeed
is the variety that we believe we can satisfy almost any individual fancy in the way
of Wines and Liquors, The least you can do at any rate is to give us a trial order,
and thus allow us to demonstrate the advantage of trading with us.

wished to fence in the frozen ponds
along the lake shore and charge admission to those wishing to skate

thrifty Scotchman, who was vexed by
the sight of such an opportunity to
make an honest dollar going to waste,

had not been interfered with by the
police he would still have been a
loser, as ice has now formed outside
the boundaries marked out by his
posts.
