IRELAND INTERVIEWED,
Paris, Sept. 27.���The Figaro publishes this morning an interview with
Mgr. Ireland, dealing with impressions gained during his European visit. The Archbishop said he was delighted with the result of his visit to
Home. It seemed to him that the Pope
was iu better health and stronger than
two years ago. With reference to the
relations heween Quirinal and the
Vatican, the Archbishop said he was
able to assert that the accession to
the throne of King Victor Emmanuel
III has strengthened the Pope's conviction that the independence of the
Vatican was lndispensible to the general well-being of the church. "This
is also my personal conviction," he
exclaimed. "I believe that Italy will
finally see the necessity of this. It is
very difficult to say, however, in what
manner to assure this independence
without a guarantee of which I believe that the true solution of the
Roman question is impossible,"

In Ontario to Hritish Columbia, One
car of cattle, sheep  and  swine,   the
Washington.Sept. 27.���The Canadian
preferential tariff in favor of the
United Kingdom has not had the expected effect of reducing the proportion whieh the United States supplies
of manufactures imported into Canadian territory. A copy of the Canadian
Manufacturer, just received by the
Treasury Department Bureau of Statistics, calls attention to the fact that
imports of dutiable articles into Canada from the I'nited States in the fis
eal year of 1800 aggregated over 841,-
000,01)0 aud from (Ireat Britain less
than 888,000,000, and that the United
States is furnishing a much larger
amount of manufactures of iron and
steel than the I'nited Kingdom, and
adds:
������Thepreponderance of trade is over-
helmlngly in favor of American manufactures, and tariff preference in favor of Hritish goods to the contrary
notwithstanding, American manufacturers are taking the cream of the business. Is it possible that Hritish manufacturers are entirely unable to compete in the Canadian markets?"
The Canadian tariff, it will be remembered, was in 18U7 so adjusted
that the duty on articles entering
Canada from the I'nited Kingdom was
made, beginning with April 1, 18117,
12', per cent, less than the rate from
other parts of the world, and on July
1, 18U8, another reduction in favor of
the United Kingdom was made,bringing the total reduction to 88 per cent,
as against goods coining from other
parts or the world. A recent announcement indicates that beginning
with July 1, l'.iUO, a still further reduction was made, so that the rates of
duty on articles from the I'nited
Kingdom would be .13 K per cent, less
than those from other parts of the
world. While tho effect of the third
reduction of 12), per cent., which
went into operation July 1, 1900, cannot yet be determined, it is practicable to compare the imports of manufactures into Canada from the I'nited Kingdom and the I'nited States
during that time,have had a perceptible effect upon the relative growth of
the imports of Canada from two countries, tho United Kingdom and the
United States.
Incidentally It may also he mentioned that the total exports to Hritish North America from the I'nited
States in the fiscal year 1000 exceeded
those of any previous year,being 81)7.-
041,722 against $89,670,488 in 1808, and

ESCAPED   THIS   MORNING

Door and Climbed the
High Fence.

REPENTANCE

TELLS   HIS   OWN   STORY

Kruger or Any of the
Burghers.
William Jones, the man who robbed
James Harris in tlie Sherhrooke House,
and who was sentenced hy Judge For-
in last Monday to two years in the
penitentiary at New Westminster,
found confinement in the Provincial
jail unpleasant aud left this morning
over the baok fence. At 10:30
o'clock Jones was in his cell in the
jail, waiting patiently until the officer should come to take him to New
Westminster. About the same hour
Guard Jarvis took three men from the
same corridor out through the rear
into the yard. lie says he locked all
of the doors behind him. At 11:45
o'clock Jones was not in his cell, nor
was he anywhere about the jail. He
luul flown, beyond a doubt. When
tde discovery was made there were
"doln's" about the jail. Kverybody
who could aid in the search was sent
for and by 12 o'clock William Jones
was wanted very badly.
No one about the jail seems to know
how the man escaped. He either had
a skeleton key or a wire of some kind
with which to unlock the doors, or
the doors were left unlocked. Guard
JorvlS is positive in his declaration
that the doorB were locked, and the
warden is just as sure that Jones had
nothing on his person with whieh to
pick a lock. The escape was made
through the rear of the jail and over
the 18 foot fence. On the outside of
the fence, close to where it joins the
building, there are two heel marks,
deep in the earth, which Jones made
when he landed. It is believed he
climbed to the top of the fence with
the aid of the bars on a window close
to the fence. At least there seems to
he no other place where he could have
climbed so high.
The escaped prisoner is quite stout,
and weighs about 180 pounds. He is
about five feet seven inches tall and
has broadshoulders, and stands erect.
His features are coarse and he wears
an expression on his face which indicates a mean and wicked disposition,
lie has dark hair and is clean shaven.
He is about 30 years of age, and at
the time of his escape he wore convict
clothes.
Officers at different points about
Nelson have been telegraphed a description of Jones, and as the prisoner only had a start of less than two
hours it is believed he will be captured. The officials of the jail refused
to give The Miner any particulars in
regard to the escape. It was learned
late this afternoon, however, that the
prisoners, among them Jones, were
out iu the recreation yard. It is an
understood fact about the jail that
prisoners in the recreation yard, un-
watched, can easily escape and it is
said that this morning the regular
guard was not in his place.

Port Townsend Wash., Sept. 27.���
The steamer Charles Nelson just arrived from;Nomo, brings 428 passengers. She sailed two days ahead of
the Roanoke, but was caught in the
severe storm und made Dutch Harbor.
Grave fears are entertained for the
steamer Robert Dollar, whieh sailed

'fought through the war, lie litis
given up everything for their cause.
Now he is going away a pauper, utterly neglected, without money
enough to pay his fare.' "
LEAD TO CHILL
Cou-
Loudon.Sept. 27.���The Pretoria correspondent of the Standard, in a recent dispatch, throws new light upon
Michael Davitt's experience in the
Transvaal aud his feelings towards
the Hoers. In view of Mr. Davitt's
contribution to the American press
dining and subsequent to his visit to
the seat of war, the Standard's dispatch is of interest.    It is as follows:
"Michael Davitt left Pretoria on
the 15th of May, 'broken and sick at
heart,' according to the words he himself used on the railway train. Rev.
II. J. Butts, Baptist minister, has recorded them and they are testified to
by Rev. Henry Goodwin, Congregational minister. 'He told me,'said
Mr. Uatts, 'that he had that morning
advised tho Transvaal Government
that if they would commend themselves in tbe e yes of the world and
obtain tlie sympathy of European nations they should at once wire Lord
Roberts to this effect:
" 'Now that the Free State is con-
piered and we are quite unable to resist alone the might, of England, in
the interests of humanity and to prevent further bloodshed, we will sur-
rended.'
" 'Instead of doing this,' said Mr.
Davitt, 'they have sent a message of a
threatening character, telling Lord
Roberts that they will bloiv up the
mines or destroy Johannesburg if
some terms are not made. What the
terms are they did not state and they
do not really mean to carry out the
treat. Their whole action will cover
them with ignominy and contempt
before the civilised world. Their
purpose is to prolong the business,
without seriously meaning to fight, for
the one object of heaping up the bars
of gold they are taking from the
mines and of accumulating and hoarding them in obedience to the dictation of that old man, Paul Kruger.
" 'That old man, Paul Kruger,'
continued Mr. Daivtt, 'is engaged in
a sort of spiritual seance business
with some blind boy predicting events
that are to happen on certain days.'
"I came out here at my own expense. It has cost me ��300. 1 was
full of enthusiasm for these people.
They knew me, they knew my feelings, but have never ti listed me. Today they refused to give me information as to the situation for my papers,
and 1 go away broken and sick at
heart. 1 am thoroughly disillusionized. For me to remain is no longer
possible. I can not endure it. They
ask mc 'why go away so soon'.' Things
are not as bad as you think.'
" 'What,' said I. 'when 10,0(10
men retire as at Kronostadt.and practically run away without firing a
shot? I went down to Kroonstadt and
saw their positions. They were excellent. Tbe Boers thoroughly deceived inc. They assured me that they
would dispute every inch of ground
and would sell their liberties with
their lives. What happened, you
know. All along the line I have been
thoroughly deceived. I wrote to my
papers this rubbish about the grand
stand that wus to be made at Kroonstadt���speaking through them to Europe. I would give 81 no to withdraw
what I have written. I go away today, but do not know that I can get
a Hritish passport from Delagoa Hay.'
" 'But,' interposed Mr. Halts,'there
are other English journalists hero he-
sides yourself.'
" 'Yes,' replied Mr.    Davitt, 'hut   I
am journalist   plus politician.

Grand Forks, B.C., Sept. 97.���M. P.
Morris, Chilean Consul General to
Canada with headquarters in Vancouver, is here on a tour of the Boundary
district. He purposes visiting other
sections of liritisli Columbia, and will
report to his Government on the mining industry of the Province.
Mr. Morris stated that 1800 tons of

Jay P. Graves, general manager of
the Granby smelter, stated today that
the returns of the first shipment of
matte from Grand Forks has been received from New York. They are quite
satisfactory, he added, and also include subsidiary values in gold and
Bilver. The company purposes installing a converter next year, when it
will be in a position to ship metallic

Work on the Juno property on
Morning Mountain will begin tomorrow. Twelve miners will be sent to
the property in the morning and the
work will be carried on under the direction of the company's engineer,
Charles Parker. The first work to be
done will he the construction of a
trail from the upper terminus of the
Venus trail to the Juno property, a
distance of 1,200 feet. Near the workings on tho Juno ground will be cleared, and a hunk and boarding house
will be erected. The building will be
over 18 feet wide and 53 feet long.
Upon the completion of this work development work will be carried on
rapidly. Tho development already
done amounts to about 14,000, there
being a 00 foot shaft, and II crosscuts
all on the Juno claim. When development work starts a tunnel will he
run along the Venus vein, at a point
near the line between the Juno and
Venus properties. The tunnel will be
extended until the Juno veiu is encountered and Immediately over tho
intersection of the two veins, a shaft
will be sunk. Mr. W. V. Borland, of
Montreal, vice-president of tlie company, who arrived in Nelson a few
days ago, visited the property yesterday, with Mr. Parkei and Mr. M. S.
Logan of Roshtnd, managing director
of the company. Last evening Mr.
Borland expressed himself as well
pleased witli the property, and the
work already done.
For a few minutes yesterday afternoon both Mayor Houston and Charles
A. Waterman were after the scalp of
Mr. F. It. C. Beer, poll tax collector.
It was only for a few minutes,because
they found him early in their search.
When they got through with him
Beer was ont of a job, and the big tin
star which he has been wearing on
liis vest was gone and with it all the
power and authority with which he
has been clothed since he was commissioned to go out among the people
and "touch'' till males, over 21 and
under 50 years, for two dollars per.
It looked like bloodshed for a little
while, but the mayor succeeded in
cooling Waterman off a bit by promising that he should dangle from his
belt the scalp of the aforesaid Beer.
Waterman had been waited on by
Peer and asked for the $2 supposed lo
be forthcoming from him.
"I'm in the habit of paying my
taxes all at once, " Waterman replied,
"and when I go up to the cityjiall
with my other tax money I will
pay the 8:.'. That's what I've been doing for years and that's what I'll continue to do. "
Beer listened, hut said little to Mr.
Waterman, lie went up to the city
hall and tilled out a blank signed by
tlie eity clerk   giving   himself   power
to seize upon tlie goods and chattels of
Mr.Waterman to the amount of the $2
tax and costs SI.50. Then he came back
to Waterman's place of business,
the Manhattan saloon, and proceeded
at once to seize a box of Royal Seal
cigars, with which to satisfy his
claim, lie got away with the cigars
and in a few momenta later Mr. Waterman was informed of the action
taken. Then he went after his friend
the mayor and together tho mayor
and Waterman looked for the tux
collector. As mentioned above, they
found him. Now tlie tax collector is
looking for u job, tbe mayor is Lsik-
ing for a new lax collector, und Waterman is Looking for a box of Royal

TIIK PREMIER AND TIIK TARIFF.
In his Sohnicr Pari; speech the
Premier said :
"We have not glvon the free trade
wo promised, they say. First of all.
wc never promised it. and live years
ago I declared Unit I was a free trader in principle, hut that free trade
was Impossible under existing-circumstances, and thai fifty years might
pass before realised. And yet the Conservatives say 1 have not given the
country free trade yet, and reproach
me with the fact. "
Sir Wilfrid Laurier would not have
said this if be were a brave, honest,
candid political leader. It is true that
live years ago lie said in one. perhaps
two, of his speeches that with our existing conditions it was impossible to
expeet that free trade could be adopted all at once. There is nol a phase
of tlie tariff question that at one time
or another of his political career he
has not favored, lle has advocated
every side of it, begin lug with protection, and running through free trade,
revenue taritT, commercial union, and
unrestricted reciprocity. He has
supported them all. and whenever in
a tight place can quote himself in defence of himself, whatever the charge
may he. It is nevertheless the fact
that the burden of bis speeches in tlie
last campaign was a pledge to give
the country the largest measure of
free trade that was possible under the
circumstances, lie led the farmers,
and the body of consumers generally,
to believe that if elected to power
the tariff would he lowered all along
the line, and that nothing would stay
his hand but considerations of revenue, lie believed in free trade as
they had it iu England. That was
the side that appealed most to his
own fanoy, and be kept repeating it
all through the campaign. If not a
direct and positive, there certainly
was an implied promise that if his
party    were    successful   the   Country
would be within    asurable reach of
free trade, inquiry along the had
concessions nf Ontario and among tin
fanners of Manitoba and the Terl'i
lories will establish the truth of thi:
beyond question.
lle has not given free trade; he has
not given a revenue tariff': he has not
negotiated a reciprocity treaty, or
brought about a commercial union
with the United Stales, witli its continental free trade, lb' litis not done
any of the things lie   said    lie   would
d i. but adhered to the old National
Policy of the Conservatives. What he
denounced he has retained, and has
turned his bad, on ovcrything he
promised. Towards tlie cud he stole
Sir Charles Toppers policy ������! Imperial preferential trade; but even to this
be could not be faithful, for in tin excess of vanity,   anxious for theatrical
effect in bis visit to the English people.lie gave them preference In Canadian markets and stipulated for nothing in return. Sir Wilfrid Laurier do-
lerves to be reproached,
Canadian exports for tin. fiscal year
ending last Juno weir valued at 1101,-
807,440, while in !-'.��;, the last Conservative year, they were 1121,013,853,
Here was an Increase of S8 per cent.,
due. of course, t" the beneficent administration of the Laurier Government, For was it not the Lauricr
Government that   produced   the good
times in Canada? Hut bow shall we
account for the Increase in the United
Stall's'.' Last fiscal year the exports
Wore ���1,304,470,000i ill 1800 they were

growth represents an Increase "i -

"liritisli Columbia," says 'I'll, London Empire,"is an extravagant Province and spends more than it receives,
In the lust three years tin deficits
of the Provincial treasury amounted
to JJ,2'.'I,out).   The estimated   rcoclpta
Of tho current year, which will end
June 30th, 1001, are 81,757,330, and
the expenditure is estimated at $:.',-
220,338, so that the deficit, if these
estimates turn out right, will he nearly half a million the present year."
A Province may spend more than it
receives and not he extravagant, If
Tbe Empire understood the con Bid
tions here it would not say that liritisli Columbia is extravagant. Curs is
a large Province, rich in resources,
but expensive to develop. Yet development is an imperative necessity.
There are things to be done that must
lie dono, and they cost money. The
Province may be compared to a virgin
estate,requiring large expenditure before it can be made to yield returns,
Our Governments would lie incompetent stewards if they shrank from the
task so clearly before them. As
long ns our expenditures are made
with judgment there is nothing to
fear and a great deal to expect.
In a speech delivered at Waterloo.
Quebec, in tlie campaign of 1800, Sir
Wilfrid Laurier said :
"1 denounce to you the policy of
protection as bondage; yes, bondage,
and I refer to bondage in tlie same
manner in which American slavery
was bondage. Sir. our policy is freedom of trade such as exists in England, biieh as is practised ill Great
Britain. 1 propose Unit wc should
follow England's example, and open
our ports to ihe products of the
world."
Unlike Hugh John Macdonahl, Sir
Wilfrid Laurier is not a man wdio
Keeps his word, lie has been over
four years in office; his Government
have tinkered with the tariff' to their
hearts' content, and instead of fiee
trade as they have it England our
iiseal policy remains precisely as Sir
Wilfrid found it. As at present constituted, the Liberal party is tl party
of organised hypocrisy, and Sir Wilfrid Lauricr is its chief.
Sir Wilfrid Lauricr continues to
pose as the great conciliator. He declares that his mission as tl public
man is to bring about a union of all
races in Canada. This is nothing
more than the usual hypocrisy, however. There is no man in the Dominion who plays more on racial prejudice than the Premier himself. We
would like some one to explain to us
how else than through and hy means
of racial prejudice ho and Mr. Tarte
expect to carry all the French-Canadian constituencies'.'

���ho has been on Provlnolal policy
duty In Nelson, and lie is also an old
business partner of Prank Tamhlyn
of.this uity. Of ineni. Young's ao-
tlon tho following Is from an Ottawa
despatch:
Knowing the Interest taken in the
Canadian troops, Major-General Hut-
ton added a more extended account of
(m3, 1 mid intrepid   notion of Lieut.
Voung and his party than it was possible t" inolude   in   liis   lii'ld    report.
I [out  Voung, of the  Manitoba Dra-
Lr',���,iis' was sent with a Hintill party to
Jeoonnoltor Klip Kop. The detachment moved off, but Lieut. Young,
hearing that the Inhabtianta of the
district were aroused und would probably oppose liis further advance,orosB-
,���| tho river so us to reach Klip bop
from the rear. To this oleverly executed movement Major-General Hut-
ton attributes the success which followed.
After following the east bank of the
river for two or three miles, tin- party
reached two farms, the men In which,
eight in number, were promptly disarmed. Crossing the river by a well
recognized drift close by, Lieut.
Voung found that he bud taken the
duster of farms and homesteads in reverse, and hud surprised their in-
nitiles. After a short skirmish eaeb
farm was disarmed in turn, and lie-
tiveen 40 and BO men were thus rendered powerless to make further resistance, in the meantime the spoor of
two guns belonging to the commando
was discovered and after sonic search
the gunB were found packed in such a
position that the farms in the neighborhood formed a kind of defence
against an attempt to take them if
made from (lie direction of Zmitspan
drift. The party succeeded in returning to camp at 3 a. in. The whole
Incident forms a singular instance of
what cool, daring and steady courage
can do. Nothing could better test
tlie finest qualities In liritisli soldiers
than to capture gunB under such oir-
eiimstaiiee from the very centre of
the enemy without the loss of a man
oi a hurse. Lieutenant Young and
small detachment are deserving the
highest credit for their brilliant achievement.

Result of Work of   Scientific  Men on
Atlantic Coast,
New York, 8ept,"87>���The scientific
men from the Hritish museum under
'lean Nienle (lomnrd who have been
excavating In Long Island during tbe
past two months for traces of man's
existence previous to the glncial period have discovered that a scene containing iplics of tho bygone age runs
hi a line due southwest from Green-
point, at Brooklyn through Midland
Beach, Htaten Island, to an opposite
point on the Jersey shore. They
found along this line stone Implement! of various kinds, in tlie
"boulder wash' known to geologists
us being peculiar to the glacial period. Thus proving perhaps, that man
existed before that period. How
many yonrs ago it is difficult to figure,
but It is variously estimated us extending anywhere from 40,000 to :; -
1 J'oars.    At Midland Beach a  stone
Knife was unearthed. Among the
relies found was a skinning knife, B
"hipped stoue-pestle and   u  hammer,

HAPPY THO' MARRIED,
Max  O'liell   Tells   How   to   Compass
This Happy Result.
In matrimony abdicate power, but
always lie clever enough to let your
wife think that, the sceptre is in your
hands. She will respect yon more for
it.
If you want to rule your wife gently, discreetly, but firmly, show her
that you have the qualities Which she
herself seldom possesses; broad-mindedness, freedom from prejudice and a
lofty sen bo of toleration and forgiveness.
If your dinner is bttdy cooked praise
your wife and damn the cook, or lie
content with remarking thai, at the
club the dinner is invariably well
cooked.
For weeks ami perhaps months you
will have a good dinner.
A husband's club is the fortress in
which lie can rest and rally his forces
before engaging in a new battle.
Now that women have their clubs,
loo, the matrimonial campaign is
fought on equal terms.
If your mother-in-law pays you too
frequent visits neglect your' wife, for
her and the lady will disappear like
magic,
Let your wife have her own way in
everything, (Inly draw the line at
being toll! what is good for you.
That's provoking.
Of this remain judge youi'Helf.
-In    matrimony    spend    your    time
watching and    lighting   that   terrible
enemy, that, awful monster, habit.
It is as difficult to be a never interesting husband or wife as it is to
be witty every day of your life,
Never impose your society on your
wife when you see she is not. iu the
mood to   enjoy- it ami   you are not   in
the mood to make if enjoyable.
Never lecture your wife except by
diplomatic, hints iu a casual, conversational sort of wtiy.
Advice is a piece of luxury thoroughly enjoyed by the one who gives
it.
A lecturing husband is the king of
bores.
Never moralize, never pose for u
model of virtue. Iu fact, never make
an ass of yourself before your wife,for
1 don't care what you think or say
you are, your wife is very much better than you.
A prig is what women loathe from
the bottom of their hearts.
Always he considerate, at first, especially. The happiness of your
whole married life may, will, depend
on the consideration you have bestowed upon your wife the first day.
Virtues and faults should go each
side of tbe balance, and if, on any
day of reckoning, the scales should
incline the right way, be lenient and
forgive. *
Never let anyone of you two take it
for granted that all the wrong-doing
comes from the other.
Self-conceit and self-righteousness
are the dead enemies of happiness in
matrimony. Ho not expect too much
of mat i i molly.
La Rochefoucauld said that some
marriages are good, but that none
are delicious. If yours is good, rejoice, return thanks and remember
that with all its faults matrimony has
a great redeeming feature; it's respectable.
"Now, Kuty," her mother said,
"when your aunt from lloston comes
to visit us tomorrow you must not say
anything abou\ her wearing spectacles. " Kuty was not like other
children..
She held her tongue- Katy did.
And the next day it frosted.

so hot that lie could not bathe in il.
The lake is situated on the summit
of the range of mountains whieh divide Horse Thief and Number Two
creeks, and is the uppermost one of
three lakes. The other two are of
cold water and each is about a quarter
of a mile below the hot one, whieh is
on the very top of the divide. The
day he was there the hot water lake
seemed to he much higher than usual
as around the edge there was grass for
about ten feet out in the water. The
take appeared to be very deep in the
centre and the water a very dark
blue, similar to that of Lakes Superior and Ontario. .Mr. Stockdale is
very much iutrested in his discovery,
which Is certainly verging on the phenomenal, at such an altitude.
