USUAL UPROAR IN      AT PEACE WITH
i i
Atlanta, Ga., Dee. IU.���Justin McCarthy, who is in Amerion leoturiug
in the interest of Ireland, and who
spoke in Atlanta ou "Victorian Ago
of English Literature." has been
BUUbbed and criticized by Atlanta
Irishman because of his views favoring an Anglo-American alliance, as
expressed in his lecture Saturday
night. Ho declared himself in favor
of such an alliance and today many
lending Irishmen, of this city, are
severely criticizing the visitor. It was
proposed to honor Mr. McCarthy at a
banquet in Altanta but Irishmen put
ou the committee 0f arrangements decline to serve, giving as a reason (hat
no true friend of Ireland oan favor
an English alliance with (ho United
States.    Tho   dissatisfaction     resulted
iu tho banquet and other entertainments conloinplatcil being called off,
The incident has stirred the Atlanta
Irish colony (o the greatest pitch. Mr,
McCarlhy addressed an immense
audience nt the Grand Opera House
where his utterances were enthusiastically received by Americans bul ooolly
listened to by  many Irish  peoulo in
the house.
Among ullui things hjy**nid: "i
am an'advocate of a olpse friendship
and an understanding between the two
great English-speaking countries of
the world. 1 believe Unit it would le
li good thing for Ihe world. The
people of England are friendly toward
the United Btules. Evon the war of
tho Amerioan revolution was a war of
ministry and not of a people against
the colonies. The Earl of Chatham
and bis associates represented (be feelings of England ai that lime and il
was the stubbornness and madness of
the king and bis closest advisors
which led England into the war with
her colonies, if the lwo countries
form an alliance Ihcy will shape Ihe
destinies of tin; world. The iulluence.
of American free Institutions will bo
felt in England aud will aid home
rule for Ireland."
It is this language to which the Atlanta Irish object. James Guillcspio.
who is among those who refused to
serve on the banquet committee, said:
"It is true I was oue of the committee to entertain Mr. McCarthy. On account; of his views on the proposed
English-American alliance, (he com-
inilleo decline to act. The Irishmen
of this country are a unit against the
tnuoh-talked-of alliance. They sec
that England is on her knees begging
for an alliance, and it has always been
the motto of palriolic sons of Ireland
that England's difficulty is Ireland's
opportunity. The hope (;f all Irishmen is to see   America   steer  clear of
entangling alliances with England."
HE LOST HIS EUASON.
A Result of the Winnipeg Hank-   Robbery.���The Mystery Unsolved,
Winnipeg,   Deo.   ID,���One    of  the
clerks of the Unison's Hank, a member of a prominent Toronlo family,
who has been subject lo periodical
attacks of deiuenla, shortly after the
robbery lost his reason, and was
taken to his friends in Tomoto. The
supposition thai he was under surveil-
auce of detectives preyed upon him so
heavily in to bring upon linn an unusually severe attack of his affliction.
It was this IIQcidout which gave rise
to the baseless rumor that a clerk of
tho bank had gone demented and confessed to the perpetration of the recent robbery.
Tho detectives are still at Work upon
the case, hut no trace of the missing
niouoy lias been found.

of the commission elected hy tbo Cubau assembly to visit this country,
died here Sunday morning shortly after 10 o'clock at tho Hotel Raleigh,
where tho commission has ils head-
.quarters. The sudden clningn from
tho warm climate of Cuba, with I ho
hardships he bad there endured, to tho
wintry weal her of New York, was
responsible for the pneumonia which
resulted in bis demise. Ho contracted
a slight cold in New Vork which did

Bossburg, Wash, Dec. 13.���(Special)
���Tlie thriving little town of Brywburg
was treated lo a genuine hold up al
0:45 o'clock tonight. J. 0. Williams,
former agent of the Spokane Falls
and Northern road, at Marcus, arrived
on the noon train to take charge of tho
Bossburg station, succeeding \Y. T.
O'Brien. Auditor .1. T. Critehctt,
who was making Ihe transfer of tbe
station, had been in the ollice all evening wilh Mr. Williams and Operator
Morris McC'arly. Shortly after II
o'clock Mr. Oritchotl left Hie ollice.
and a few moments later Williams aud
McCarty. who were standing Willi
their backs to tbo ticket window, were
sttirlled by a oommaud coming from
behind them, to throw up their
hands. At first, however, they bo
lieved it to be an attempt at a joke by
an acquaintance, and paid no attention
to Ihe first or second command,
The third was accompanied by Ihe
click of the revolver and four arms
went up as one. The robbers immediately asked that Ihcy bo told Ihe
combination of tho safe, but as Williams bad not yet been given it ho
could uot comply with (lie request.
Ono of the robbers thou Btopped to
Ihe safe aud tried the knob and was
surprised lo find (lie sale door unlocked. While the second highwaymen
covered with his revolver Ihe two
thoroughly frightened employes, the
firsl kicked to pi Goes the two wooden
drawers of the safe and appropriated
everything contained therein. Whal
amount of booty wai secured it is
imposiblo to say but nothing was lefl
behind.    The   robbers did   not   molest
the personal property of either Williams or McOarty, but left with tlie
remark:   "Hoys, you are all right."
The robbers WOrft safely away before
(he alarm was given but Deputy
Sheriff Terry is on their track. Agent
O'Brien, who is being checked out of

snid: "Governments everywhere are
endeavoring to preserve peace and Germany hopes to succeed for a long time
to como iu avoiding serious conflicts.
True to its history traditions and the
Emperor's great aims, the German
nation, while protecting to the fullest
its every right and interest, aud
miudful that its future depends npnn
its strength and the sharpness of its
sword, will nevertheless halt when universal aims of humanity, or the maintenance of tho world's peace and

Paris. Dee. 12. ���In tho Chamber of
Deputies today, M. Gronsset, Radical
Socialist, interpellated the Government Qii the directions of the general staff in the Dreyfus affair. He
read extracts from newspaper articles
which aro alleged to have eniinatod
from mombers of tho geueral staff
which caused a violent uproar, during
Whioh the Dcnnties rose and rushed at
one another and engaged iu a serios of
fist fights. M. Groussot ountinned his
remarks In the midst of the tumult
and recalled an article in the Intran-
sigiueauste referring to letters from
Emperor William and an Interview between Count Yon Minister, the German ambassador, at Paris, and M.
Casimii'-Porior, tlie former President
of the Republic Count Dcmun, the
Conservative leader, lure interrupted
tbo speaker and desired that the house
be consulted as to whether the discussion should be allowed to continue.
The Premier, M. Dupuy, said that
as head of the Government, he protested with the utmost energy against Ihe
language of tho speaker who, he added
hail not measured its possible effect.
(Applause.)
M. DorouJede, Revisionist, shouted-
"Como off the Tribune!" This caused
a redoubleiuent of llio uproar. When
semi-quiet had been restored, M.
Gronsset said iho center of resistance to
(he revision of the Dreyfus caso was
no longer the ministry of war, it was
elsewhere. As to the secret documents
ill the case, he pointed cut that they
had been ridiculed by Emperor William himself (loud protests). M.
Deschene, Republican, invited the
speaker not to mix foreign sovereigns
in the debate any more than ho would
mix the President of the Republic iu
(hem. M. Gronsset continuing, spoke
of the articles in newspapers in which
it; was hinted thai Russia and the Czar
worn mixed up in tho Dreyfus affair
and he also alluded to the recent seini-
oliicial nolo relative to the minister of
foreign affairs, M. Delcasse. being obliged to e.viilain certain statements lo
the German ambassador, (Violent Interruptions) relative to tho kilter's
daughter (Uproar and Hoots). Russia. Gronsset said, was next mixed in
(be affair. The Bpeaker said he pointed out these matters in order to show
that a press campaign had been inaugurated by interested persons to prevent the discovery of the truth, M,
Groussett concluded- with demanding
whether the government was disposed
in permit the confer of resistance to
the law lo pass from Ihe ministry
ot wur to ihe general Staff of the military government of Paris, whether
il would any longer tolerate Ibis attitude' of ringleaders and whether il
would govern for the Republic] or fur

Berlin, Dee. 12.��� During the course
of the debate on foreign affairs in the
Reichslag today, Herr Richter, the
German Radical leader, expressed the
opinion that Emperor William's tour
of tho Holy Laud, had left a mixed
inipressiou in the minds of the Protestants. Herr Richter protested
against .the recent expulsions from
North Schleswig as being unworthy of
a great people aud expressed the hopo
that the negotiations with Great Britain for a commercial troaty wore progressing woll. Tho Radical leador
also said no unnecessary obstacles
should bo plucod in the way of the
importation of American products.
He then advocated the new army bill,
but Said it was of such proportions
that ii did not harmonize with the
sympathy expressed iu tho speech from
iho throne on the subject of tho
(V.ar's disarmament proposals. Iu
conclusion Horr Richter severely criticized ihe treatment of the Lipnn Det-
tnold question nnd demanded that
Emperor .William's telegrams should
bo countersigned by the responsible
ministers.
Count i'osadowsky-Webner, Imperial
Secretary of State for the futerioi
referring to alleged uneasiness as to
the condition of public affairs, said
lhat in his opinion tho situation both
ut home and abroad was favorable. In
any event, ho could aver that there
was no uneasiness among the Federal
Governments of the Empire which wen;
entirely of one mind on all important
questions, Regarding Herr Rfnhter's
allusion to ministerial responsibility
lie said nothing was douu without
the responsibility of tho Imperial Chancellor and that during Emperor William's absence in the
east, public affairs had beeu continuously disposed of. Tim lateness of dale
for convening the Reichstag was due.
lie said, to the necessity of thoroughly
preparing the proposed bills. Regarding tho expulsions, he pointed out
that tbo power vested In individual
slides for tho performance of such acts
could not lie limited. He then explained the necessity for legislation to
protect men who are willing to work
against tho intimidation of strikers,
and concluded by declaring that tbe
settlement of the Lippo-Detmold succession rested with tho Bundesruth,
which bad not yet reached a decision.
Baron Von Bulow, the Foreign
Secretary, dwell at length upon foreign affairs, lie said the Eastern
union ut the present moment was
peaceful and much less threatening lo
I lie peaeu of the world, though he did
not mean in imply that tho problem
was Battled,
Discussing Emperor William's ro-
cent lour, Baron Von Bulow said that
ils lOBUlt had disproved nil stories
disseminated as adventurous plans
and opposing claims. German Pro-
lesianis would allow uo one to dispute
their right lo have a house of God in
Holy places. The desire of thu Emperor, be asserted, to dedicate the
Church of the Redeemer himself was
an act of piety to his ancestors as
well ns a matter of personal  religion.
Tbe jour,ie/ also showed other gov-
ernnieiil.i, the foreign Seoretary continued, that (ieimany does not wish
lo injure the well intended rights of
there anywhere. Neither in tl.o East
or elsewhere did Germany oppose
French interests, Referring to tho expulsions from Prussia, he said: "In-
liTiintiunal relations will be in no way
disturben,since the expulsions were an
aol of .sovereignty, which in certain
special cases could  not  be  avoided."
With.regard to Germany's relations
to Great Britaiu, Baron Von Bulow
said thero wore various matters in
which Germany could proceed in
company with England, and that will
ingly, without prejudice to and with
ihe fullest maintenance of other valuable relations, Then turning to Germany's attitude toward tho llispano-
Ainerican war, he said: "Our duty
has been to lake care that Germany's
relations with neither Spain nor America should be disturbed, Germany
has no special interest in Cuba and it
was uot tor Germans to judge who was
right or who was wrong. Therefore,
the German Government has scrupulously observed a loyal neutrality.
Never during the war did the government show or evon feel any inclination
toward unwarranted intervention. In
a straight forward manner within the
bounds of strict neutrality, and without prejudicing our relations wilh
eithc belligerent, wo did everything
in our power to prevent injury to German shipping and trade.    (Cheers.)

Tho result of the investigation into
the Ainsworth disaster is that, so far
as tho evidence before tho Board
goes, the captain and crow of tbo ill
fated vessel did all that was possible
under tho circumstances to savo the
lives of the passengers and the freight
on board the vessel. Thus all the damaging rumors to tbo contrary that have
been circularod, aro discredited by the
Hoard of  Trade.
At the nn cling of tho Board of
Trade last night in the ahsiuce of
the Prosidenl, Mr. Frank Fletcher
took the chair, whereupon tl letter
from the committee in charge of tho
investigali' n was handed iu, and then
the secretary reread tho statements
of B. J. Long, George MoFariaud, M.
G. Cuiuthiiigs and J, Brett, whioh
were produced at tho last nice ting, and
Ihe account ,.f tin1 accident and several
letters whioh appeared in Tho Miner
were also read. Mr, T. G. Proctor,
one of the committee, then recited
Ihe evidence he had gathered from tho
officers and crew, which wcnl to prove
that the boat was not overloaded, as
she had but sovon cords of wood, about
four ���' :j: jf freight, and 89 persons
aboard at the time ol the nbcfflent.
i he evidi nee he adduood also showed
that both the machinery aud hull
hud lieu examined ami pronounced
sound by the Canadian und United
States llUtllOritieS, thai every effort
had been to recover   the bodies   of tho
victims, and that everything possible
had I,ecu done to save the cargo which,
through being under water, was
practically impossible to get at.
Mr. II. B. Thomson then banded
in statements procured by Mr. H. J.
Long from scleral of the passengers,
which be bad received shortly before
the meeting.
Mr. Noil Campbell slated lhat thero
was no one a! tho wheel when ho eamo
on deck as she keeled over, lhat no orders were linen, and that (ho eiiptuiu
and purser were the Oral to get in tho
lifeboat. Ho further said that when
in shore lie had suggesled lying tho
stranded vessel to ihe shore, which
would have saved her cargo, and that
seven of Ihe crew wore under tho iulluence of liquor, Nathaniel Latham
also sevi rely scored the ollicers and
men. and considered the cargo might
have been saved. W. E. Gorman
lated lhat tho second mate threatened
to knock anyone on the head with an
oar who tried to got in the boat, but
promised to como back for Iho others,
lie saw .1. (turn, the steward, in tho
life boat before she was upset. Ho also
blamed (lie captain, whom he snid wus
cal ing supper at the time of tho acci-
iliui, but tlie behavior of Engineer
Kane was most creditable, .lames
Lamoille tostlflfld that he was the
lu-i man in Ihe life boat, which contained in is. Win n the buat capsized,
ii auagod to save himself by holding on to some one's  feci.   Ho beard
those who tried to got   into   the   boat
threatened,    and    though!   everyone
\u old have been saved   had   ordinary
precautious been  taken.   The   freight
mid have been recovered, as tho
teamei drifted on to tin1 beach. This
(included ihe written testimony which
bad been forwarded to Ihe ciiuimittco.
Captain Lean then told his story
in person, lie told it straight for-
wardly and to the satisfaction of (hose
present, who cross-examined him
closely. Referring to Mr. Campbell's
lory, be said that (lie latter bad
shown himself lo bo a crank vyhilo
ii I oard, and had beeu officious and
had bad lo be called down severely,
and he I bought he was actuated by
pique, Tlie captain had got into tho
boat lirs!, because if she had not been
gotten loose before the snip went over.
she would have been ID feet under
water, lie did not give orders as
there was no one to give their) to,
two out of the four practical sailors
having been drowned, and ho was
obliged lo personally disengage tho
life boat, Everything was over fivo
minutes after Ihe alarm was given.
They were obliged to threaten tho passengers, so as to make them get into
the boat one by ono, and thus avert
I another catastrophe, Ho went with
the Brsl boat, as with him thero wero
i only three practical men. They had
nothing but planks for oars, the soa
was rough and Ihe large boat required
j careful handling, It was evident too
I by then tbat tho Ainsworth would noli
sink. They could not fasten tho
ship to the shore, as all ihe lines wero
submerged ten or fifteen feet. To got

Which the waves would   havo  dashed, t��_

A SCHOOL   OF MINES.
It is acknowledged by nil that a
School of Mines should be established
in this Province, and such au institution has been spasmodically ngitated
for in the press. The need for the
School is great, and is becomiug daily
more apparent. Not only are there
many who would gladly embrace the
opportunity of gaining some scieutific
knowledge of mining, but lectures,
delivered by some competent person;
on tbe mineral and geological phenomena of British Columbia would be
also followed with interest by some of
those who have had a certain amount
of    technical    training   elsewhere.
It is a matter of common knowledge
tbat tbe mining camps of Rossland,
Sandon, aud Nelsou bave all beeu condemned at different times in tho past
hy exports who bad gained their ex
perience in mining districts where
different conditions prevailed. Those
competent to speak state that the con
ditious under which permanent ore
bodies havo beou proved to exiBt il
this country frequently defy all an
alogy with those found iu other and
better known districts. Thus the results of tho researches of a careful and
scientifically trained observer could
not fail to be of great value, as well
os of great interest, to a mining com
munity such as now exists iu the
KootenuyB.
While the desirability of n School of
Mines iB generally ackuowedged, the
question of its location has been a
matter of some controversy. Rossland
bases her claims on tho fact of her'em
inence as an ore producer, though, if
this argument be a souud ono, Sandon
would havo equally valid, if not
stronger, claims.
It appears to us, however, that the
ohief desideratum of the location of
this institution in question, is a central position. It is not to be supposed
that Rossland would alone supply
either tho students, or the subject mat-
tor discussod���and this without dis-
pnragiug tlie prominence of that
camp. On the contrary, its supporters
would also bo drawu from Nelson, the
Slocan, tho Ronndary country and East
Kootenay, nnd no other towu affords
tbe same facilities of access from
those various districts as does   Nelson.
This consideration alouo should de-
cido the location of any projooted
School of Mines, without any reference
to the great and increasing richness of
tho Nelsou Mining Division. Investments, like everything else, are
largely governed by fashion, and for a
time the tide of fashion sot strongly,
uliiiimi exclusively, in the direction of
RoBsland. Times are changing, however, and capital is not now confining
its attention to Rossland, for, great
mining camp as Kossland is, and
greater as she will undoubtedly become, she doea not, and cannot expect
to, monopolize all the rich mineral
deposits of Southern British Columbia.
If the present plans of the New York
Chamber of Commerce do not miscarry,the next war will uot be attended with the serious rosults to tho mercantile trade of tho countries engaging, that havo been a tenture of
all wars of the past. Heretofoie
ships that were tho property of citizens of the contending nations have
been exposed to violence, detention,
Old seizure,and consequently the business pursuits of private concerns have
been seriously tampered with. To overcome this iujustico the New York
Chamber of Commerce hns urged the
President of the States to call a meeting of the marine sources of tho world
to consider tho question and formulate a scheme whereby private property will be as safe on sea as on laud
iu times of war. With all tho powers
interested the carrying out of tho plan
adopted would he a matter of no difficulty and would permit ot the commerce of the world continuing uninterruptedly when food sapplies were
most needed.
EDITORIAL COMMENT.
(Toronto Star.)
To establish a Canadian agency at
Waehingtou would he a partial admission that we need United States countenance in our national and commercial life, which we do not. Canada
needs a commercial ageucy in Britain
rather than at Washiugton, aud until we get the former, the latter can
well wait.

(Loudon News.)
There is no prize fighting these
days. There is a good deal of chin-
whacking, but there is uo fightiug.
But if you want to abolish prize
fighting tho way to do it is to make
the men who agree to fight go to somo
secluded spot, escorted by n company
of soldiers. Make them fight till one
is dead, and then have the soldiers
shoot tho other one. That will stop
prize fighting or chin-whacking.

people have tho natural genius for
governing inferior races, and he adds:
"What proof havo wo shown of
suoh administrative gcniuB in our
dealing with inferior races. Compare
tho treatment of tho Indians in Can
ada with that of the condition of
drunken aud disorderly Indians in
Alaska and the Inidans in the very
heart of the Republic, und see if they
are a just encouragement to larger
colonial enterprises."

William Jennings Bryan, tho idol
of the Silverites of the Uuitod States,
has finally growu weary of a soldier's
life. The press dispatches tell us he
has tendered to tho war department
his resignation as a Colonel of Volunteers in the United States army. Colonel Bryan did tho best he could ; he
enlisted as a private, was afterwards
tendered and accepted a commission
but saw no service. As a soldier
he could tako no part iu political discussion. This was a hardship ho
could not endure and two days after
the war was formally ended he asks
permission to step down aud out. He
was much less fortunate iu his mili-
tury career thau was Teddy Roosevelt.

TALKED OF JJ COUNCIL
Children Will Not  bo  Allowed   on the
Streets Between the Hours of 8 p.
111. and 6 a- m.
At the regular mooting of the city
council held yesterday afternoon,
thero wore present tho Mayor, in the
chair, and Aldermen Hillyor, Madden,
Whalley, GilKer and Teetzel.
After routine the question of the
best site for u weigh-bridge for
weighing coal was discussed, and
on resolution the mutter was referred
to tbo Mayor, as n committee of one,
to decide on the Lost site.
A communication was thou read
from \V. C. McLean <& Oo., for rock
which had been hauled by them, but
which hud beou taken by the Allen
Bros , for tbe construction of their
Operu House. Tbe Mayor stated that
the rock came originally from Stanley street and tbat \V. C. McLean &
Co., hud been instructed to dump
tbe rock on tho corner of Ward and Silica streets, bnt instead had dumped
into an adjaaeut empty lot belonging
to tbe 0. I'. R,, whence tbo Allen
Bros., hud removed it for building
purposes. Tbo opinion of tbe council
was tbat W. O. McLean & Oo., had
absolutely no claim on tbe rook
iu question, aud the communication
was ordered received and filed.
After a number of accounts had been
oonsidered and approved, tho council
formed itself into u committee of tbe
whole to consider By Law No. 37, iu-
trducod by Aid. Whalley with a view
to keeping children off tbo street after dark. Tbe main features of the By
Law were as follows. :
No children under lti are to be allowed on tho streets between tbe
hours of H p. in. uud li n. m. exoept for
certain specified reasons.
Such as: Being seut out on messages in oonnootiou with accident or
sickness in the family, being ut work
after those hours. Tbe parents will
also be exempt from penalty if their
children are   beyond their control.
Children, however, will bo allowed
on the streets during the hours above
stated, if they have tho written permission of their parents.
Tbo parents or guardians will bo
held responsible for nitrations of the
By Law, tbe penalty for which is a fine,
iu tbo discretion of the Magistrate,
not exceeding ?ii() and costs. Iu default of payment a warrant may be issued to distrain on tlie goods of the
offender, aud, if tbis does not produce
tho required amount, bo may be committed to joil,..with or without hard
labor for a   period   not   exceeding  111
days.
Ou tbo motion of Aid. Hillyer and
Madden it was decided to restrict the
application of the By Law to children
undor 14.
Tbe formal reconsideration and final
passage of tbe By Law will be next
meeting.
Aid. Madden then brought up tbo
question of protecting the hydrants
from frost, but tho Mayor stated that
it was attended to by tbo Chief of the
Fire Brigade who inspected them
each day. ��
Tho Mayor stated that tbo plumbers
were complaining tbat tbo rooent regulation enforcing the putting iu of %
inch pipes was hard on thorn, as they
had laid iu a stock of >g inch pipe.
It was unanimously agreed however,
tbe regulation was necessary, though
ono 3, inch connection with each bouse
would bo sullleient, and, on the Mayor
stilting that "tbe matter will adjust
itself, if discretion is used," the mutter dropped.
Tbe Mayor stated that he had staked
(100 miner's inches of water on tbo
head waters of the Salmon River on
behalf of the city.
Tbe questions arising out of tbe
freezing up of water pipes wore then
discussed at some length, and thu
Mayor stated that the practice of letting taps run nil night wns not only il-
legul, but fraught with danger to tho
city. If, during a cold snap, 100
consumers allowed their tups to run
all night, tbe waste of water amounted to more than the flow of the creek,
with the result that tbe supply of
water in the reservoir got low, and
there would be insufficient water supply in caso of fire. No action was
taken in tho matter.

and knocked everything to pieces in no
time. He did not know what caused
tbo disaster. It could not huvo been a
leak. Probably a plank was suddenly
sprung. The crow were not drunk.
Tbe rule of tho boat was that the men
should not be treated and bo bad given
orders to that effect to the steward who
was a now baud. Tho crew was a
now one, and bo wus about all the
time, and would havo noticed any
signs of intoxicalion.
Mr. E. J. Ma'thews, manager of the
Ainsworth, then detailed tbo efforts
tbivt bad boou made to save the cargo,
and Und Ihe bodies of tbo victims,
quoting in tbis latter respect tbe report of tbe constable at Ainsworth
which appeared in The Miuer, and
which testified that all possible) efforts
had been mado without succoss. Mr.
Campbell was a windy gentleman,
and he had treated his offer of salvage
as an irresponsible boast. Before retiring Mr. B. .1. Mathews thanked the
Board for the opportunity of presenting
his caso.
It was tbe general opinion of those
present tbat tho written testimony,
Which they bad had no opportunity of
testing, was conflicting aud in some
instances absolutely incorrect, and it
was tbo unanimous opinion that Captain Loan bad acted for tbe host under
the circumstances, and was deserving
of praise rather than blame. At tbe
samo time it seemed desirable that the
origin of tho disaster should be cleared
up. It was accordingly moved by Mr.
T. G. Proctor, seconded by Mr. H.
B.Thomson: "That this board after
investigating the matter cannot reasonably attach auy blame to any person connected with the steamer, and
that the cause of the foundering of
tbe stoamer remains a mystery, and,
further, that tho captain used good
judgment iu his behavior in rescuing
passengers. Nevertheless, this Board
is of the opinion that, in cases of
accidents of this kind, where there hns
uoen considerable loss of life, tbe Government should miiko tbe fullest investigation as to the   cause   thereof."
Copies of the resolution will be
sent to the Attorney-General and to

suy that our Hardware doesn't look a

Victoria Dec. 12.���Tho ease against
the manager the editor of the Colonist
for alleged contempt of court in suggesting that tho election trials should
not be held before a judge who previous
to his appointment had taken an active
part in tho contests,came off today before Mr. Justice Drake,being presented
hy Mr. Duff as counsel for Mr. Prentice the respondent in the East Lillooet case. Mr. Hunter for ihe newspaper men, argued that the article
complained of was only fair comment,
neither intended nor calculated to
bring tho court into contempt or to
influence its decision in any caso. He
further raised the point that the judge
referred to, Mr. Justice Martin, is not
legally a judge at all, his appointment by the Dominion Government
being invalid. Mr. Hunter, in support of this point, quoted from section
seven of the Supreme Court Act, ns
follows: "Any barrister of less
than ten years standing and who
has been in actual practice at the
bar of tho court for ten years, shall
be qualified to be appointed a
judge of the court." He presented
an affidavit to show that Mr. Martin
had beeu admitted to tho bar of the
province in 18(14, only four years
ago. Mr. Justice Drako reserved
his decision.

S. S. FOWLER'S COLLECTION OF B-
C ORE.
Seyeral Interesting BpeoimenB to be For
warded to tho Columbia, University iu Now York.
Mr. S. B, Fowler has mado a most
interesting and very fairly representative collection of specimens of Ihe ig-
neoui rocks of Southern British Columbia, which ho is about to send to
the Columbia University of New
York. These specimens, us Mr. Fowler explained to a Miner reporter, are
especially interesting to tho mining
man as they represent tho rooks which
contain the deposits of precious metals in this cnuitry. A olose acquaintance with these rocks would bo very
useful to tho prospector, bnt is absolutely Indispensable to the expert who
is called upon to give an opinion as
to the probable permanence of oro
bodies, whose outoroppiugs arf visible
on the surface.
By way of au instance of the expensive errors into whi 'h prospectors
and others are often led through lack
of acquaintance with these rocks, Mr.
Fowler pointed to a pieos of white
felsitc, faintly speckled with iron pyrites, which he hail taken from a dyke
neai Sicamous. A man was busily
employed in sinking on the dyke in
question, and was very much surprised
and mortified when informed that
the mineral he was extracting was not
quarts. This folsito occurs frequently
in the Slocan in connection will) the
mineral   [InpnBits,    and   Iho   collection
also ooulaluou another Bpeoimeu   from
the   Anloiue   mine,    and   a   piece   ul
quart/, felsitc from Iho QueUD. Bess.
There were   also   Several   specimens
of gnbbro, the rock   Iu which the boat
Red   Mountain,   near
ti i ii    found, and   also

Another luterostiuc

speeimon was an
"agglomerate" from the Qertrndf
mine at Kossland.     This   rock   is the
result of the aecummuliiti if  dust,
nnd minute particles of rock, which
have been subsequently indurated by
various agencies. Thero was also a
very interesting specimen from the
Ooxoy mine, which showed distinct
traces of its origin, pioces both of
gabbro and quartz being plniuly discernible  embedded in lava.
There were also two specimens of
hornblendic granite tnki n a few miles
down the Kootenay Kivor, Their color
nnd texture differed, showing thai
one rock bad cooled much more rapidly than the oilier. Spa :e forbids an
enumeration of ihe specimen!, bul
Home molybdenite from the Ooxey,
nnd samples of feldspar ami porphyry
were also in the collect ion,
As the object was to furnish spool-

rocks of the district, ihe various oris
