MYSTERY CLEARED UP
Winnipeg's Big Bank  Robbery nt Last
Unravelled.
Winnipeg, Aug. 10���Tbe Molsons
Bank robbeiy mystery which ranged
such a sensation here last Fall has
been cleared up nud the supposed robber is now behind the bars. The man
charged with the crime is John W.
Au lemon employed as junior clerk in
the Bank at the time of (he robbery
and latterly as accouulant with the
McClary 'Manufacturing Company.
His am st was uft'eeied through �� di-
lecllve who came here at iho instnnc
of the Bank. Tho detective engaged
ih a clerk in a leading dry goods store
an 1 obtained board at, Ihe same lodiz-
nit: house with Anderson They be-
eime bosom friends and Anderson finally confided to his friend lhat he was
in possession of a sum of money. In-
visitation followed and Anderson
was arrested today. It i< undeti-tood
thnt the entire amount of thn stolen
money wus recovered having lieen
bidden by Anderson iu a va'ise and
buried near the river-bank. The hank
officials pnsitivelv refuse to give any
inrnfruartou -Hs-Hie piildin -��* rejrards
the amount of money recovered
The robbery occurred between Sep-
iember 28th mid Oclober 4th of last
year di.ring tho absence of Mnnager
Phoepoe ou a brief holiday. The sum
of $02,0(H) was taken from the b��nk
vaults $42,000 of which wnsuon-wfioti
able. Every effort was made by the
police and bank authorities to discover
ihe. whereabouts of the money and lo
effect the arrest of the gnilty party.
It was finally decided that the robbery
most have been committed by some
one intimate with the working of the
vaults and n detective was engaged to
stay with the ca6e until the robber was
discovered. His labors were completed with the arrest of Audersou as stated above. After tho robbery Manager
Phoepoe was removod to another
agency of the bank aud was succeeded
here by Manager Kohl of the Brock-
ville agency. Citizens were confident
that Manager Phoepoe was inuoccut
and mndo loud protci'S against his removal. The nrrest of Audersou completely vindicates all the other officials.
Ai dorson, the young man under nrrest, is about 2il years of age, and of
good family He came to Winnipeg
from H stings, Ontario. The discov
ery of tho money was mnde by following Anderson to the point where he
had concealed the money. After his
departure, a party of men dug down
several feet and a valise with the
money wns found. It is reported tonight that Anderson huB confessed.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier Writes   About tho
Invitation   Incident.
Ohioago, Aug. 10���In a personal letter
to H. H. Kolsaat, of Chicago Times-
Herald, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the Can
adiau Premier, denies the truth of the
interview recently given out by F. W.
Fitzpatrick of tbe Treasury Department Washington, in which Mr. F'ilz-
pattick asserted that, Premier Laurier
had stated to him that he oould not accept tbe invitation to the Chicago autumn festival, believing tho Biitno with
strninod relations betwoen two conn-
tries, might result, in some' unpleasant
incident during his visit. In hin letter Premier Laurier says; "You uro
at liberty to sny that I have paid noat-
tention to an interivew published reoently iu a Washington paper iu which
Ihe reporter purports to give tho pib-
lie words not spoken to him by me.
Life is too short for busy meu to take
notice of this kind of hiarsay evidence. If I had nny communication to
make to the publio, I would prefer to
make it in my own words. It seems
to mo tbat I need hardly add thnt tbe
invitation of the Chicago authorities
will rooeive from me the most courteous consideration. "J
A meeting of the committee on in-
vitntions will be hold Eriday at which
Chairman Trnax, who has been in
Wi shingtou where he went to extend a
formal invitation to attend the festival
to President MoKinloy, will be present
and the Canadiau Premier will then be
cordially invited to attend the festival This will be the first Invitation extended to Premier Laurier as the members of the committee deny that Mr.
Fitzpatrick had authority to invite
the Premier or that, he is iu any way
connected with the festival.
Washington, Aug 10 -In diplomatic
quarters copios ot Ihe report just pre
seiitml io ihe House of Purliameut by
Mm cJininitteo which investigated
Ihe currency of India have been re-
(hived, It is on this report that Lord
Georuu Hamilton, Secretary of State
for India, has based his announcement within (he Inst few days, (bat
India would go to Iho Gold Stnndard
This announcement hns attracted much
attention in tho United States and the
coin lesions are, moreover, tn some extent connected with tho negotiations
carried on some mouths ago by Sena
tor Wolcolt and others repiesenting
ihis country as to iuteruational bi
nietallisin The committee wus mnde
up of the most influential statesmen
aud financiers of England und the testimony beforo them was gtven by such
eminent authorities as Lord Roths-
child head of the great linn of Roths-
child,Lird Al Ionium,former Governor
of tbo Bunk of England, the Earl of
North brook former Governor Gen
eial of India, Sir Alexander Mackon
zie, Lieutenant Governor of Bengal
Professor Marshall of the University
of Cambridge, and indeed pructically
all of the students nnd scholars of oco
homio questions in Great Britain. The
sessions weie private and the testi
mouy us woll as the finaucial report
has been made public. The report sets
forth tin original and present condi
tions of the monetary system aud then
-says:."We ptoceed to consider ���thp
question whether in the light of six
years of oxoenence gained sinoe 1893
it is desirable to reverse the policy in
initiated In that year, and to re-open
Ihe Indian mini,, to ihe unrestricted
coinage of silver In onr opinidu
any measures for gradual ro-ip-ning
would be so fully and immediately
discounted ns to defeat the precise ob
jects for which thoy are suggested. It
is obvious thut a certain prospect of
ihe heavy fall In coinage would at
once drive capital from India. The
policy of opeuiug (he mints nt some
future day to hilver standards ou a
different fooling wheu urged by those
who looked fonvi.id to au international
agreement and consider that there is
leasonuble hope of such an agreement
within a limited period. Such persons
aim dirctlv at a stable exchange between India and the United Kingdom
aud advocate delay only in order that
a national agreement may bd reached,
With regar.i to this, and tho United
States having proved fruitless, no fresh
proposals so far as we are aware have
been or are being made by any of the
Governments conoiirued. We come
next, to tho suggestion that tho present
system of closed mints handioaps Iu-
din in ber industrial competition with
r-miiiirii's on n silver standard. This
aspect of tbo que tion was considered
by Lord Herschell's committee who
expressed the opinion that if we assume the argument as to the stimulus
or check to productions to be sound,
the effect of each successive fall in exchange must be transitory and could
bo couutinued uutil ciroumstances
should have wronght invisible adjustment. In this opinion, we ooncurrod.
Evidence has been laid before us
whioh seems that oricos and wages
have lisen iu China since silver has
fallen iu price aud the local coppor
currency has appreciated in teims of
silver.
"To reopen India mints to silver with
ont u international agreement woul.1
necessarily result, according to all past
experience, in renewing the instability
of exchanges between India and gold
stnndard countries.
'.t is g tnernlly recognized thnt fluct-
aiious of exchange constitute obstacles
to trade. The true interests are to
bo sought iu a. stable monotary power
of exchange. " T'io report then discussed the principle of n gold Standard and
says : " At the present time the practical alternative to silver monometal-
ism is a gold stanndard, tbat is to sny
gold as the measure of value in Iudia,
either with a gold currency or a gold
reserve. Four fifths of tho foreign
trade of India ie with gold standard
countries, and for this reason tt is desirable that Iudi,; should have the
same measure of value, ns these countries. Tho change to a gold basis
h is boen presented to ub by Professor
Marshall of Cambridge as like a movement toward bringing the railway
guage on the side branches of the
world's railway into uulsiou with the
main lines.
"A further, and certainly not a less
important, consideration for a oountry
like Iudia is that an established ������gold
standard is the simplest and most,
effective means of attracting capital."
In conclusion the report says: "For
these reasons wo oonclude that stops
should ho taken to avoid all possibility
of doubt as to the determination not to
revert to a silver standard bnt to proceed with measures for the effective
establishment of a gold standard. "
TWO    CYCLE     CHAMPIONSHIPS
The Colorod|American   Adds the Mile
to His List ot Victories.
Montreal, <^ne.,   Ai g    10.���Another
beautiful  day   and a  crowd     of   five
thousand'peoplo greeted the second day
of ihe world's evele n.eet.   The racing
was of a better order, the m.iniigeineiit
giving pace makers in semi-finals    On
account of   the lime   occupied   in disposing of the 100 kilometre race th" live
miles   ninatour  handicap     wns   postponed until tomorrow when   it will be
ruti off ns part of an extra  day's   racing     There   were   two world's chum
[I'onsblps  on   ricord..    iho   100   kilo
metre race and mile professional.   The
former raco was a gift for tho Chicago
rider, .lohu   A.  Nelson,    who   bad   no
difficulty   in   winning,    bunting   Ben
Goodson,  the   Australian,   hy   nearly
four miles and Riddell, of   Winnipeg,
the only other finisher, by seven miles.
Cherry, the  English   champion,   who
won at Vienna last year, was  scratched having injured his leg by   running
against the fence in the amateur championship yi sterdny.    He was   expected
io give Nelson the  rnn for first place.
Nelson   had   much     tho best   of   the
pRce wilh a steam motor.a triplet and
a tandem and be   evid m'tly   had    had
the most experience in following pace.
Goodson's pace   were   a triolet aud  a
tnrdeill and was not as good as that of
Nelson, while Riddell   practically had
no pace at all     Two oilier men slarled
but dropped out beft re many miles hnd
been covered.    It was easily seen   that
records were going to fall wheu Nelson
rode tho first tour miles in l)::ll and he
kept on riding off miles at   two   minute gait   until   he   had   the  previous
amatonr record   in the distance.    Major Taylor, had but littla  difficulty   in
adding the   mile   professional   championship to his laurels, but   it   was   a
race all tho way through.    All the preliminary heats had good   finishes,   except, that won by tho Major who easily
rode his field down.
The most iuteiosting wero the third
in which Nut Butler cleverly disposed
of C. R. McCarty. who won the half
mile event yesterday, and the fourth
in which Angus McLood, the fastest of
the Canadians, disposed of Bowlet of
Chicago in a rattling finish.
MILITARY ACTIVITY
IN TBE TBANSVAAu
Kruger's Forces  Are  Preparing Themselves.
EVERYONE MUST FIGHT
ON THE NORTH   STAR BRANCH.
Work is Stopped aud People Wouner at
the Keason   Thereof.
A letter received yesterday from Ft.
Steele, speaking of the suspension of
work on the North Star Branch railroad says : Thn grading on this branch
was commence, last w eok at Cranbrook.
Tbe portion south of St. Mary's is
not interfered with by the order.
Why the work has beeu stopped can
only be conjectured. There are two
reasons giveu. One is that the North
Star and Sullivan people will not put
up for the construction of tho roadbed.
The other reason given is that a
ohange ol plan has been made. It is
said the company will go on and build
iis north and south railway to connect with tbo road now beiug constructed from Arrowhead to Argenta
and from that point over the mountains down Toby Creek to the Winder-
nitre country. It is also said thut the
branch from this road to the North
Stir will be built from the mouth of
Cherry creek, about six miles north
of Fort Steele. Thero is considerable
mystery about the matter and the people of this section are watching the
outcome with considerable interest.

Victoria, Aug. 10. ���(Spe?inl)���The

to Defend the State-
Pretoria, Aug. 10 ���The Volksraad
has revised tho Grondwet(constitution)
of the South African Republic by adding two members to the Execniive
Council who composed tho Cabinet.
The Executive is enlarged to nini
members. The proposal increase in
the representation of the gold fields is
also ratified.
London, Aug. 11.���The Pretoria correspondent of The Times says: "Jn order to avoid interference with Transvaal's] iutemal affaire by those who
have the strongest objection to the proposed conference to the frnnohise bill,
the adoption of a five.yearOj residence
limit is probable nt the protracted ee-
oret sossion of tho Volksraad. Pres -
dent Kruger has failed to obtain the
consent of the members to the removal
of religious disabilities without the
consent of the burghers but it has enabled the President to publish the bill
for cosiderution next session.
London, Aug. II.���The Johannesburg
correspondent of the Daily Telegraph
says: "Iu tne Volksraad today, Thursday, Mr. Kruger deolared he was glad
they had all agreed to stand by the
Lord as the head of the state. The
Raad, he continued was afraid to go
off the right path and away from- tha
Lord."
London, Ang. 11.���There is little
news this morning concerning Trsn��-
vaal affaire. From the sileuce of dispatches regarding Mr. Chamberlain's
last speech it looks as if tbe censorship
were again active. It is evident,
however, lh.it amendment to the constitution empowering the Government
in the event of war to oal! upon all
inhabitants without distinction to assist in tbe defence of the state, hus
created some amount < f alarm. The
German uitlanders, are said to have
applied to 'heir consul to interere in
the matter while the Standard and
Diggers' News, the Boer organ, pub
lishes a statement that ;the Government has sanctioned assurance beiug
given through tho press that there is
no idea of calling upon Englishmen to
fight Englishmen or any other way of
ignoring internationalsentiraent.tradi-
tions or customs Dispatches from Pit-
rmantzburg report considerable military activity there. Tbe commanding officers havo held a meeting and is
sued their circulars notifying the volunteers to hold themselves in readiness for active service."
NO TRUTH IN IT.
President    Shaughnessy    Gives    the
Usual Denial to a Railway Rumor.
Montreal, Ang. 10.���"It is absurd"
Baid President Shaughnessy of the O.
P. R. last night, "We have all the
roads we want." The denial was
made in reference to a report that the
C. P. R, Boston and Maine and New
York, and tho New Haven and Hartford roads had formed a combination
ostensibly against tbe interests of the
Now York Oentral. Mr. Sbaghnessy
declined to discuss the rumor further.
In railroad circles here not mncb
credence is nttnohed to tho story. It
is pointed nut that the Canadian Pa
cilio and New York Central are in
rather close relations. Dr. Seward
Webb's pet road, the St. Lawrence
and Adirondack, which forms a division of tho New York Oentral, enters
Montreal over the Canadian Pacific
tracks, and tho Canadian Pacific, the
New York Central and the Michigan
Central jointly own the Toronto,
Hamilton aud Buffalo Raiway, which
gives the Canadian Pacific entrance
to Buffalo, and connection with the
New York Central system. There is
a close traffic arrangement already in
existence between the Boston and
Maine uud the Canadian Paoirlo and
the New York, New Haven and Hartford is inoluded in this through the
Boston and Maine For tbe past two
years fhe Canadian Paoiflo has been
engaged in building up the winter
port business at St. Johns, N. B. A
great deal of money has heen spent in
the conslrnntion of wharves and the
erection of elevators and there is no
indication that the Canadian Paoirlo
is about to relinquish itB efforts in this
direction, especially as it now haa no

UNITED STATES MINERALS.
The Miner is iudebted to tho courtesy of the editor, Mr. Rothwell.for
advauce sheets of the statistics of the
uiinerul and niotul production of the
United States in 1MJK, collected, as is
no douht truthfully stated, with infinite labor nud oare. and shortly to appear in the seventh nnnual volume of
'The Mineral Industry, its Statistics
Technology, and Trade." Tho claim
is made that they are the most comprehensive and accurate statistics of
the country ever yet published. The
production they record was the largest
in the history of auy oountry. and
the details warrant the statement that
the United States "is rapidly attaining the point where it will be the
greatest exporter of minerals and metals
of all the commercial nations,"
Anything like u detailed review of
the information supplied in these sheets
is beyoud the capacity of The Miner's
space. Every metal, ore, or chemical
product uf which trace could be obtained has been set out in one or other
of the tables,the whole going to esfao-
lish the boast that the United States,
iu l^fix.was by fur the largest, producer
of iron and steel in the world, was
second only, aud iu slight (legtee. to
Great Britain in the production nf coal,
and that it furnished more than half
of the world's supply of copper The
total value of all miueral production
for the vear was |roi),Ml6,7,"i0, against
1648,804,899 in 1897. Of this total,
1814,965,620 was the value of metals,
while ores and mineral amounted to
1488,659,141. These two, as will be
observed, aggregate more than tbe total given, but the discrepancy is explained in tho statement that ores and
minerals include $88,098,011 for bauxite,
niauguno-io, aud irou ores used in
making aluminum, ferromangnnoso,
aud pig iron, and being duplications
were deducted in the total values.
To the British Columbia reader,
gold Bilver lead, copper, and coal will
be tho most interesting. Of gold there
were ;i,14s,tiii troy ounces, valued at
105,082,-180, against 3,864,576 ounces
valued at 169,210,786 in 1897. The
production of silver was 58,703,127
ouuees, against 50,457,2112 in the previous year. Thero were 32N.475 tons of
lead, against 107,718. Of copper there
were 389,241 long tons, against 222,825
in 1897. The total production of coal
was 218.100,510 short tons, valued at
$209,999,991, against 200,857,211 tous,
valued at $206,024 2;i4 the previous
yeur. Of the coal 52,848,605 tons were
anthracite. There were 15,897,707
short tons of coke producod, valued at
$80,505,503, ugainst 12,708,891 tons, valued at $28,203,020 in 1897. Almost
proportionate increases were maintained throughout. We hear much of the
enormous wheat crop of the United
States, aud of tho wealth it produoea,
yet in value it is little more than half
tbat of its minerals. The metals and
minerals of Canada, with development
in full swing, will exceed in value
the products of the farm aud forest,
uud as in tho United States will be
the great producers of wealth. It is
time our public men were beginning
to realise this, and to legislate in anticipation of it, Mr. Rothwoll's tables
nro eloquent of the rapidly increasing
importance of the mineral industry.
right about. And His Honor, in addition, is expeoted lo have so,in- r, gurd

Win n tin- interview with Mr. Hig-
.tins, iu which thnt genlleiiiuu took
iccasion tu intimate that he wns no
lonnei in sympathy with Die   Govern-
milt, appeared in The Victoria Globe
\Ii. C it''i a pacer The Nous-Advertiser, nt nice declared lhat the interview win a lil el It did not give
this as nn opinion merely, and thero
wni not iho   slightest oioleine that   it
;poko with authority; yet it was positive in its contradictious, and re-
proncbed Ihe offending (llobe, in tin'
solemn and ponderous manlier characteristic of The Advertiser, for during
to misrepresent the ex Speaker. Days
have elapsed since, nnd Mr. Higgiiis
has maintained silence;as(jto the interview, o.mvinoillg evidence, if any
were needed, that it did no injustice
to the present political sentiments of
that gentleman. And now the marvel
is how The Advertiser should have the
andaoity to stigmatise us libellous a
report of which it hnd not tho leas-
knowledge. On .he next occasion of
the kind it would do well to justify
itself wilh some authority.
Our correspondent at Victoria may
be right in his surmise, that the Government nre afraid to allow tho Opposition in New Westminster to perfect
their arrangements for a contest, but
all the same the country will rejoice
that the election is to lo brought on
so soou, and sonio sort of relief to the
nrevuiling excitement brought within
visible distance. If the Opposition
are not ready for a contest, the fact is
one to bo regretted ; bnt all that can be
said in respect to it is, so much the
worse for the Opposiiou. One would
thing, ho we v 31', thnt it ought not to
requiro much preparation to face a
candidate who bus been guilty of such
gross political prostitution as has Mr
Semlin's new Attomey-G uoral.
ATT'V -GENERAL    IlKN'l. EKSON.
Alexaudor Henderson, O- C., member of the Legislature for tha city of
New Westminster was bom in Oshawa,
Out., in 1859, was educated in the
schools of that town and the University of Toronto, graduating an u B. A.
in 1884. Five years later he was admitted nt Osgoode H'dl, nud practiced
law iu his native town. In 189! he
took ud his residence nt New Westminster. He was elected to the Legislature at the hist genera] election as
a supporter of Ihe Government' of tie
Hon. J. H. Turner, but "Hopped"
when the Lieutenant-Governcr, unconstitutionally dismissed his Ministers and so precipitated the crisis that
now exists. Mr. Henderson will have
to go back to his constituency for re-
eleotion Although a turn-coat he may
get in because there aro some who
prize a Cabiuet minister more than
honor.    Mr.    Henderson   is a Liberal.
"If the Government live to meet the
Honse its defeat iB beyond a doubt,"
says The Victoria Colonist. And
again, iu another place, "That Mr.
Semlin has not a majority is certain."
We do not know that Tho Colonist's
opinions should make or unmake Governments. It would perhaps bo safer
to depend on something inoro author-
itivo, something more in conformity
with acknowledged practice in respect
to snch matters. But its opinion in
this case is ns good as the one which
influenced Lieutenant-Governor Mo
Inues to dismissB tho Turner Government, and is founded on, if anything,
clearer and more satisfactory evidence.
Will His Honor do honor to consistency and dismiss the Semlin Government'/ It is hardly supposed that he
will, us his friends do not claim for
bim that nicety ot discrimination
which gives to consistency its true
value as a political virtue. He can,
however, insist that Mr. Semlin shall
meet tho Legislature at au early date,
and pnt his strength to a test that all
have to acknowledge as llual and conclusive. This is tho least that may
reasonably be expected of him. If Mr
Semlin is usurping a position to which
his following in the House doos not
entitle him,   ho should bo sent  to  tho

IN   A    WILD     WESTERN     WAY
'Trof.'"   Lewis    and   a   Ooopla
Henchmou Clean Out a Saloon
A sensational affray occurred at
baseball (grounds at !1 :ilt> o'clock
Kossland, Wednesday morning.
tlm hour mentioned Professor Frank
LewlB, who wrostled hero with tbe
"Terrible Turk", it is alleged, ae-
coiupuniod by Kelly, LewiB and a
third limn, whoso name is unknown to
the police, entered a temporary saloon
owned Iiy Mr. Stephen Garuhani. Peter
Kmniursai aud William Luke were iu
oh'irge of the place aB barkeepers. It
is alleged that Professor Lewis drew a
revolver and fired three shots in cider
ti - intimidate those in possession.
Uuring the moleo that followed some
one took $8 from Luke's pocket.
These were the receipts of the bar.
Tlie demeanor of the invaders was bo
threatening that the two barkeepeis
left the premises. When they returned
about $70 worth of liquor and cigars
had disappeared and the invaders
wore gone. The only liquor left eon.
listed of a bottle of lime juice and
throe-quarters of a keg of beer.
Tho cause of tbo trouble is said to be
ill-feeling on the part of Professor
Lewis because Mr. Garnham secured a
license io tun the Hiloou temporarily at
the baseball grounds. Professor Lewis
has bad charge of tbe grounds for base-
hall purposes, and therefore did not
think that Garnham had tbe right to
SBll liquor there. Mr. Gjruham secured a lioeuse, and this shut Lewis
out, when he applied for a like privilege. This so angered Lewis that it
la alleged he Hired the three men who
accompanied him, and went to tbe
baseball grounds for the purpose < f
cleaniug out Garnham'a saloon. It
IB olaimed tbat the attacking party
wero considerably under the influence
of bqnor. Professor and two of the
meu who participated in the affray
have beon arrested. The third man is
HUH at large, but the police nre searoh-
>ug for him.
