Trustee   Stoney   Denounces   System
Whereby Certain Firms Get Bulk
of School Board Business.
For almost an bour yesterday evening. Acting Chairman Peck and
Trustee Stoney engaged ln a wordy
battle over tbe matter of the insur
ance policies beld by tbe different
companies of the city at a specially
convened meeting of tbe board of
school trustees.
Mr. Steney had asked at' a previous
meeting when a lapsed pollcy wus
given to a certain flrm, that a full
statement be drawn up and submitted
for consideration. He then contended that in his opinion, tbe handling
of these lapsed and lapsing policies
was not in tbe right hands and was
as a matter of fact, being worked by
an official of a local trust company
for private reasons and not for tbe
best interests of the city.
This report having been supplied by
Secretary Lennie was on tbe agenda
for last evening by mistake as the
session was not a regular one. Chairman Peck, wbo had not been present
at the previous meeting, was for. a
time in tbe dark regarding procedure.
The point having been explained and
the statement submitted, he asked
Trustee Stoney to retract his statements that matters were being conducted ln a manner which did not reflect to the credit of tbe trustees, wbo
should be qualified to do this work
themselves without bringing ln outsiders.
Big Pour fat Most.
Mr. Stoney said tbat from the list

Chepstow, Kng., May 18.���The
workmen who have been engaged for
some months excavating in the mud
of tlie River Wye have now practically uncovered the timbers beneath
which Dr. Orville Owen claims are
buried the Baconian relics.
The timbers form a bulkhead such
as Is usually erected to hold tl.e

JU8TICE CLEMENT WILL CHARGE
JURY IN REX VS. MILLEN THIS
MORNING ��� THE PRISONERS
STRONGLY DENY GUILT.
Wltb the exception of ninety minutes, the entire proceedings of tha
second day's spring assizes yesterday
was' occupied by tbe evidence in the
witness box of Francis and Margaret
Millen, who are charged by the
crown with attempting to extort from
James B. Wilson, of Sixth avenue, the
sum of $50,000 by blackmail. The
court was crowded when the male
prisoner left the dock to give evidence on bis own behalf before Mr.
Justice Clement and a Jury.
Examined by his counsel, H. B.
Robinson, Millen swore tbat be bad

It was true that be had calle 1 Wilson a "dlry dog" and be meant every
word, as he had good grounds for using tbis language, preferring to believe bis wife to Wilson.
Offer $1000.
Millen, who at no time became excited and spoke to counsel ln a clear
voice, stated tbat Wilson's brother
Jack bad approached him with aa
offer of $1000. This was ln January
Jast and was done, witness contended.
for the purpose ot hushing up the
whole matter and to keep the case

Asked why he had not gone to the
police when his wife told him what
Wilson had done to her. Millen said
he did not know t he law sufficiently
well and his wife had asked him to
consult a lawyer. He maintained that
the reason why the police magistrate
bad thrown out the case in the lower
courts against Wilson was because
tbe bench had not been acquainted
with all of the facts. "I will get
Justice yet," said the prisoner after
the counsel had endeavored to maka

GRAY HAIRS BANISHED.
The old Idea of using sage for
darkening the hair ls again coming
in vogue. Our grandmothers used to
have dark, glossy hair at the age of
seventy-five, while our mothers have
white hair before they are fifty.
Our grandmothers used to make a
"sage tea" and apply it to their hair.
The tea made their hair soft and
glcrsy and gradually restored the
natural color.
One objection to using such a preparation was the trouble of making lt,
especially as it had to be made every
two or three days on account of it
souring quickly. This objection has
been overcome and by asking almost
any first-class druggist for Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy the
public can get a superior preparation of sage, with the admixture of
sulphur, another valuable remedy for
hair and scalp troubles. Daily use of
this preparation will not only quickly
restore the color of the hair but will
also stop the hair from falling out
and make lt grow.
This preparation is offered to the
public at fifty cents a bottle and ls

The Bookman says of Rex Beach,
author of "The Barrier."
Born iu Michigan. Rex Beach went
to college in Florida, then published
bis first book in New York. He was
19 when he went to Alaska, about |
twenty-flve when he came back. In
those six years he saw practically
everything there was to be seen in
the mining countries, and not only
with his size and strength held his
own, and with humorous good, temper has won extensive popularity.
Mr. Beach's energy is as versatile
as it is effectual. Though still in hi;*
twenties be is vice-president of a big
Chicago construction and manufacturing company, secretary of the
Chicago Athletic association, winner
of the one mile handicap swimming
race at last year's games in St. Louis,
and a holder of other athletic records.
His "Barrier" is considerei his
masterpiece, and the stage version of
the book as the most accurate exponent of the life in Alaska ever presented upon the American stage. This
excellent play, direct from the con
quests of the cities of the east will
eppear in this city at Westminster
O.era house on Saturday, May 20.
The aivance sale of seat, whlc'i
have been universally large all over
the country will open promtly at
9 a. m. at Mackenzie's Drug store today.
No matter how rich the coal
field, it Is practically impossible
to realize by mining the same
unless the property has adequate transportation facilities
afld is close to the market.
What's the use of you investing your money in a proposition
which may or may not be reached by a proposed railroad .
You are practically buying
Bhares in a wilderness. The
coal must remain in the property until the railroad ls built
Would you not prefer to place
your money ln a proposition
which embraces the maximum
body of coal and ls right on salt
water, with a natural harbor
having 30 fathoms of water,
deep enough for the largest
craft that floats ?
The British Pacific Coal Company, Limited, is 80 miles from
Prince Rupert, and lies Immediately in the course of all coating steamers and trans-Pacific
liners.
The quality of coal is 83 per
cent, fixed carbon, 30 per cent,
more than coal on Vancouver
Island or elsewhere on the
Coast. Practically gives the
company the control of the fuel
market on the Pacific.
Those who buy at 35c have
the assurance of the Trustee
that the next issue of shares ln
The British PaclBc Coal Company will be placed on the market at 50c, which means that
those who buy today at 35c
will actually make 15c profit, or
|150 if they hold 1000 shares.
Only a limited block of shares
to be sold at 35c, so don't delay.
Alexander Faulds, one of the
greatest authorities on coal
mining propositions, and a man
who has spent a lifetime in
the development of the coal
fields of North America and
Great Britain, in his report on
the pioperty of The 'British
Pacific Coal Company, unconditionally and irretrievably
states: "Your properties are
very valuable, being of adequate
commercial assemblages and
magnitude, and excellently located with their transportation
facilities, the possibilities of
which, from the estim-it.d quantities of coal they are likely to
contain, are very vast and
practically unlimited with
depth."
Mr. Faulds in his report says:
"Taking ths estimated tonnage
of 36,000,000 during ths life of
the mine at $1.00 per ton would
give a clear profit of $36,000,000,
or $22.50 for every dollar Invested."
No application received for
less than 100 shares.
Where whole cash accompanies the application, a Certificate will be issued at once
setting fortli tbe fact that the
shares have a par value of $1.00
each, and are fully paid up und
non-assessable.
SHARES SOLD ON  TIME.
Shares may be purchased on
easy terms by paying 10 cents
in cash per share applied for,
and tbe remainder in three
equal monthly Instalments.
Remember that an engineer,
ln charge of a party of men,
leaves for the propeity in a few
days to carry out the plans outlined by Alexander Faulds, the
company's  consulting  engineer.

AGAIN���8EES      TOWN      BORN.
DIE, AND THEN  REVIVE.
���   .'���*%*��,'H.** I_��"
Hope, B. C, May 18.���Fifty years
ago "Daddy" Yeat3 saw 10,000 souls |
encamped in Hote. Some were in lo^
cabins, some In board shacks, but
more wfero under canvas. ��� Smoke
curled up from a hundred fires among
the firs of the forest, and long tables
were piled with tin dishes on the
clearings. Thirteen saloons barely
Inclosed by slab-sided boards and
bark were as open as their roofs and
ihe men who ranged along the rustic
bars were as carefre. as their successors In Ho;e today.
Fight With Wilderness.
Witji their picks and #acks, this
army moved into the hills, hewed
their way through virgin forests and
scaled Jagged peaks that "Daddy
Yeats���who was "Kid" Yeats then-
had believed would never he mastered. Back and forth, to and from tho
camps, came these men o.' adventure
and fortune-seeking. Some strayed
far Into the hills, lived upon what
they shot or caught, and then, hoi-
low-cheekeJ, crawled back to camp to
fatten up and try again. Others went
Into the creeks���Silver and Siwash
and C'o'jualialla���to return with lumps
of rock showing streak of yellow
metal. Many journeyed far into the
interior to establish a subcamp at
Barkervllle.
Old Hudson Bay Pott.
Gold was the fever then, as lt is
the fever now, and this was the flrst
invasion of the new Eldorado of
which Hope was then, as It ls now,
the accredited capital. Some five
years before a Hudson Bay post had
been established at Hope, and Yeats
���a raw boy from the~"old country-
was stationed ln this bowl of the
mountains. Indians brought to the
post curious stones streaked with
gold, and the wealth of the region
was quickly advertised by mouth
among the mining camps along the
coast.
Conditions in  the early  '60s were
not what they are now.     When the'
snow came early, navigation on the
Kraser was precarious, the provision-1
ing of a big camp was primitive and
insufficient;   consequently   Hope   began to fade away in the same rapid j
manner that it had sprung up.   Gold
had  been   found���here,  t_ere, every- j
where���but the surfaces had scarcely
been scratched, and the yield .was not
sufficiently  large to offset  the short
season,  and the difficulties  of bucking a rough, mountainous country.
Town   Breaks   Up.
So "Kid" Yeats, ln his long cowhide
boots and antiquated slouch hat. from
his  shack on Fraser street, watched
the breaking up of the camp; watched i
the dismantling of the slab sided  saloons;     watched    the    departure    ot
rough,    uncouth,    but    stout-hearted
men, who carried down stream   mysteries of lives that had budded under every clime.   When the last of the'
Argonauts had slung his ltg over the
board of the little stern-wheel steamer,   Yeats  sought  consolation  in  the
fact that there was left behind   the j
Hudson Bay warehouse, at Fort andj
Water   streets,     his  own  cottage  In'
the rear, the Coquahalla hotel, a few
frame buildings facing the river, and
a scattering of air-filled shacks.    Of
these the Hudson Bay and hotel building remained for the rennaissance.
Forty  Years'  Slumber.
Then   Hope,   out-Van   Winkling  old
Rip himself, settled down   to a forty I
years' slumber, undisturbed  until the
steamboat  blast  came  echoing along
the   valleys  to  turn  a  dream   into  a
reality ana a dreamer into life.      So
Rip Van Hope awoke to find a second
growth  of forest replacing the clear-
ing of the first;  no trace of the   de-  i
serted   cabins   of   the   "sixties,"  and \ J
only  two  buildings remaining of the  ,
town that had sheltered  10.000 souls  i
shortly before the ''big sleep" began. | J
True,  there  were a  few  other build-  (
lngs, new since then, but old  before j'
the dream was done.    Wardie's store, _
and Cray's emporium   were of these,
while  Lawrence's    verauJared  house
looked old enough for one of the originals.
All  Things Changed.
The faces that were shadowed under the broad-brimmed hats were new
and strange, though some were old lu
years. Old Rip. feeling of his second
growth, was unable to link himself
with the past, until a bent but wiry
figure In cowhide boots, leaning ovei
a moss-grown fence in Fraser street,
brought the past Into the present, and
made "Daddy" Yeats���"Granddaddy"
Yeats in actuality���the keynote of tho
situation. All things seemed changed.
Only the hoary heads of Mounts Ogilvie and Hope and of Holy Cross
mountain were the same as flfty years
before.
Town Coming Back.
As "OU Dad" again looked fort'i
eyes kindled with almost forgotten
flre, his mind went back over the almost forgotten years, and he began to
see re-enacted before him the scenes
of "sixty-one." Again men, rough and
uncouth, but stout-hearted, came _y
with shouldered packs; again wooden shacks sprang up in a night; again
canvas flopped in the shelter of trees
���the sons and daughters of the original trees���and again tliere was that
eager, expectant note of the care-free
fortune seeker, hungry to pounce sp-
on his prey. Again the fever was ravaging the country���that wonderful
gold fever Ul**'rounds recruits from
all walks of life. Again Hope was
called to its own, and T7.d Daddy"
Yeats, sole surviving witness of the
rise and fall of the slumbrous giant,
straightened up with the fires of
youth; for the reawakening was incense to hls nostrils, wine to his lips,
music to his ears.

Case for the Defence.
This finished the case for the defence and prisoners' counsel addressed the Jury. Mr. Robinson, in the
course of an eloquent speech, said
this was a case which should never
have been brought into court. All the
points at variance could easily bave
been settled in the homes of the peo-
pie principally concerned. Counsel
said that had the sum of money for
alleged blackmail been fixed at say,
$1000 or even $6000, tbe Jury might
perhaps have bad reason to think the
Wilsons had been tempted to secrecy
through their bankbook, but when
without a single exception every witness for the prosecution swore that
nothing less than the huge sum of
$50,000 was named by the Millens, he
suggested that the whole thing was a
scheme whereby these witnesses had
decided to tell the same story to a
Jury and had ln the interval elapsing
between the case in the police court
and this higher tribunal, determined
to stick to this figure as the sum
mentioned by the defendants. j
Counsel recited the facts of the
case from its inception until its
close, speaking for forty'' minutes.
Mr. Whiteside, ln a quiet manner,
spoke on behalf of the crown and
pointed out to the members of the
Jury the seriousness of the crime ot
blackmail. He failed to find ��� that
counsel for the defence had brought
home to the minds of the Jury any
facts which would free his clients
from the terrible charges laid against
them. Every witness called for the
prosecution had positively stated on
oath that the sum of $50,000 had been

not overlook the fact that even when
t_e case had been dismissed in the

Millen was not certain that Justice

���something like a crisis has occurred
ln the theatrical profession owing to
so many actresses finding themselves
in straightened circumstances. The
women's committee of the Stage society has taken the matter in hand.
It has been found that many girls
of good families go on the stage in
order to advertise their beauty and to
enable them to make good matches.
They are willing to work for small
salaries, and this affects the pay of'
other actresses. As a remedy for this I
evil managers are asked to place girls
of great beauty but of no artistic gifts
among the supers Instead of, as at
present, entrusting them With small
speaking parts.
in order to warn girls of the fact
that  a stage career ls not a certain

circulated the facts as to the actual;

Paris, May 18.���Paris is plunged in
scandals���not scandals in the ordinary sense of the term, that is, society
peccadilloes, but scandals closely affecting the governing department u'.
the state. They may not at all be
serious but they are regrettable, and
suggest the reflection whether other
irregularities are not going on behind
the scenes. i
It is now several weeks since the
arrest of M. Maimon and M. Houet ln
connection with the disappearance of
documents from the foreign office. M.
Hamon, the accountant of the same
department, is under arrest on a
charge of defrauding in accounts, and
M.Chedanne, the titular achitect of
the foreign office and of French embassies abroad, has been arrested on
a charge of complicity, while a young
barrister named Valensi, and a young
Corsican friend, named Clement!, and
his protector and associate, M. Meule-
mans, the editor of a weekly review
of diplomatic affairs, have been arrested on a charge of fraud in connection with the clandestine use of of-1
flcial documents. I
Nor does the list end here. A leading detective Is charged with burglary and counterfeit coining, and a
warrant has been issued for the arrest of a financier who promised
clients interest at the rate of one per
cent a day. This is the total number
of affairs so far. Between them they
are occupying the attention of half a
dozen examining magistrates, and
providing mirth, surprise, and, it must
be said, some disgust to thousands of
newspaper readers. Each case seems
more extraordinary than the other.
The credulity of hundreds who blltho
ly invested their money at 3G5 per
cent interest can only be rivalled by
the comic nature of the mission given
to Detective Warze to arrest himself,
he being implicated in one of the burglaries which he was charged to investigate, or by the wonderful enthusiasm of the Inhabitants of Lille when
they greeted Valensi and his associates last June to receive a shower
of decorations of the fictitious order
of the Red Crescent of Morocco.
M. Chedanne is a man of undoubt-
I ed talent, and was accustomed early
j to public praise.   He won the Prix de
' Home for architecture at the unusual
age of twenty-three.   He is a Norman
of humble birth, but shows great talent,   invention,   Industry   and   thrift

Renovation of Embassies.
At St. Petersburg, Constantinople.
Rome and Vienna the embassadors of
France were pressed to submit to the
reno*. ation of their embassies. In St.
Petersburg it is said that tbe ambassador insisted with some energy
against the idea that tlie embassy
needed overhauling, and wounded the
feelings of the architect. Later, when
a heavy cornice fell into the street
and nearly killed two passersby, it
was with the utmost difficulty that
the officials could be persuaded to or-,
der repairs. At Rome M. Barrere hai

Austrian  capital  complained   of   the   Tne hanker, who has now disappear
vulgarity of the style of architecture,
but it was readily admitted that somo
of the money at least had been wisely-
spent on a famous set of decorative
panels by Besnard. But today it ls
discovered that many of the bills have
not been paid. In addition, the well
known artist M. Andre Devabez

It was really agreed that he should

The case of the French embassy at
Constantinople, however, is still more
extraordinary. There contractors
have been engaged for two years or
more. They demand instant: payment,
of a portion of their bill. It is alleged
that not a tenth of the $00,000 already
voted by parliament for the construction of the embassy has been paid to
the contractors or others connected
with the work. M. Chedanne, however, did not allow his attention to be
monopolized by embassies. M. Brloux,
the magistrate who ls in charge of tho
case, delegated experts to visit the establishment of a dealer in tapestries
In the Rue Chateaudun In order to examine a number of important Gobelin
tapestries deposited there by Chedanne. It is alleged that 32 tapestries
were given to the dealer to clean and'
restore. The bill came to $4100. This
amount was Judged to be too high and I
Investigations are now being made in
order to ascertain on what basis the
charges were made. Most of the tapestries have heen found, and the dealer states positively that he has not
bought a single one from Chedanne.
While this inquiry was proceeding M.
Brloux took down the deposition of
the contractor for recent alterations
at the French legation ln Peking, who
accuses  Chedanne  of  having   wrong
ed, ls said to have $000,000 with him.
