James Kerr, an old-time member of
tlio perlesh, one who has seen better
day*', wandered into the eanctumn this
wi ek and icgaled the staff with the ex'
puionces of oue who could "light his
'•'-' wid th' (lish of do wheel." Mr.
Ken's appearance did not denote the
chequered state ef finances of which our
gUesl complained, his eout particularly
giving hia tho smug appearance ot a
pastor on parochial business. Our devil,
who should have known better, attracted
the wearer's atfcution by the frequent
gazings he bestowed upou the garment
and elicited 'he information that the
coat was had through necessity, having
been traded off eight times, only, like the
cat, to return each time. Thereby bangs
a fule, which ii given below in the words
of the winner:
This Talk Of A Coat.
This is the story of h coat that was too
large for even u trump printer. Haviug
faileil to make closo connections with hia
millionaire friends in the East, Jim came
to the modest conclusion that bis own
brand new suit ought to ho exchanged in
a Sheeny bagnio.
This done, Jim with a |S. note stsrted
in to wake the echoes in a saloon. That
.vas in Rawlinja, Wyo. George Perry
of tho "Rawlings Republican" shed
real tears when he saw his old pal of
Cheyenne In his Expansion coat. This
• as too much fur James, and hn too
wiped away a tear. But Jim is a bung-
starter from Pnwullop. Without a mo-
n-ants hesitation he traded that unique
coat with the first tramp ho met. Con-
mstiihiling himself .lim went ou his way
r> j lielng. In a week's time he and tho
tramp again met and swapped back. The
tramp was the bigger man and  insisted.
•lim took n tourist's walking ticket
through Washington; was mistaken for
Kenneth Snrhlgton iiellairs in Spokane;
was refused h permit at (Jem, and invested in some milling stock in Rossland.
These varied misfortunes he traces ti»
his ownership of the coat. The cruelest
shock of all was being taken for a preacher in Nelson, .liui with >jreat presenco
of min.1 irlshed himseli '***] Hashed a
corksciew, tbns establishing an alibi.
i'l.is coat should have another and
larger owner, If Dr. Sinclair of Rosa-
laud fails lo recognize it—if any party
to the crime other than Jim can be pro-
doced, wo would lie pleased to know.
The coat in not a coat of many colors
l-'veryl.inly bus a prospective interest in
il—capital or non-capital. The garment
Is nn i-partisan and its personality can
only be accentuated by too much hooze»
The present wearer of it is a worthy
gent who is of the opinion that the
world is round and the people in it
square Treat him kindly and take care
of the coat, for it is heavily mortgaged
and his puise is li-jht.

►' SADLY AT FAULT
Recent   Miniag   Story Exposed  to
fiidicule.
I ing market, and, it is reported, sold
' out and took their profits.
The telegram sent to London by
Bernard   Macdonald,   the   general 	
manager   of   the   British  America
Corporation, was to the effect that King Humbert's Assassin Tried
they   were getting 4-ounce ore  in
PRISON FOR LIFE

"Perhaps the most delightful explanation of the   working's   of   the
stock exchange  is to  be found   in
the last book written by  poor Harold Frederick, before'the  Christian
Scientists sacreficed his life on  the
altar   of  their   faith.    The   whole
curious system by which a man sells
what he has not got and buys what
he has no intention  of   owning,  is
there full} set forth.    It is possible
that Mr, Whitaker Wright, the  famous company promotor, has  read
in the   Market   Place.    His  latest1
deal seems almost a  plagiarism of
that story, and as it was worked out
with Le Roi stock it has a peculiar
interest locally.
"Some tew weeks ago a telegram
was received in London to the effect
that a lead had been discovered in
the Le Roi which ran $50 to the
ton.    The price   of   Le   Roi  stock
the   Annie  shaft.    This   telegram
was by no means  a fake,   as it is a
well known  fact in  the camp that
the ore chute now being worked in
thut   property   has   been   running
from two to fourteen ounces in gold, ,
and the average for nearly 100 feet J
in depth is closer to $80 than $50.
The statement that "settling day
comes" is also false, as the Le Roi
No. 2 company have only recently
asked the   house for a settlement,
which may not be granted for another two or three weeks yet. and
until such settlement has been fixed
no deliveries can be demanded.
Sentenced.
New York, Aug.  29.—The trial

The more important  mines are rep-1
resented  by large  specimens,   and j
taken together,  they constitute an
I almost] unparalleled display.    This
I i.s the verdict, not merely of visiting
Canadians,   who   naturally   feel  a
personal pride  in this exhibit from

mining engineers  who  are viewing
THEIR HARD LUCK
Destitute Miners Brought From Nome
by the Government.
There is an  element in the London stock exchange which has been
hammering Mr. Wright's flotations
persistently.    Last year this  same
element,   by   conspiracy  with   the
superintendent of Lake View consols,   by   manipulating   the  mine,
hammered  these shares from £28
down to ;£io.    Owing to  this con
spiracy   it   is   reported   that   Mr.
   _.«.„,  ..un.   *y.—me inai   mining engineers  w
of Bresci, for the assassination of the foreign exhibits with impartial
the king of Italy, will open today and dispassionate eyes. It has al*
at Milan, according to a cablegram   ready been  confirmed  by the large
I from   Rome.    It is   expected that   number of awards given to Canada
Bresci   will    deliver    a   statement   by the jurors of the mining section
which he  has  been pieparing.    In   0/ the exposition.    A  recent letter

fend   Bresci,   said:   "The   defence
will consist of a simple but dramat

nomical   ai.d    political   condition,
which rendered the assassination of
v. 11 . .  .

rose at once, and the bears began to bright  suffered   to the extent of
sell largely in   the   full   and  very aboot $4>000>000.      Mr.   Wright,
natural expectation that the shares __...: j—-
would   fall.    Mr"   Wright   quietly
accepted,     either    personally    or
throngh agents, all offers.    Settling
day came and the price instead of
going dowu was   going   up.    The
brokers prepared to pay the differences but to their astonishmeet Mr.
Wright demanded delivery.    Then
it was   discovered that there was
hardly any stock to be  had at all,
Mr. Wright having   carefully   corralled all the paper before he began
his little operations.    The scarcity
of shares when they were actually
wanted sent the price   higher still,
and when the astute engineer of the
scheme let his victims out at  the finish he was a few hundred thousand
ahead of the geme.
"Unscrupulous as the whole transaction was. it had been  so organized that the principals did not come

rules of the  exchange.    That Mr

maintains his attitude of cynical
indifference.
The Sentence
Milan, Aug. 29.—At the trial,
Bresci declared he had decided to
kill King Humbert after the event
in Milan and Sicily. "To avenge
the misery of the people and my
own," he added, "I acted without
advice or accomplice." The prisoner   was   pronounced guilty   and

These mines could easily ship
from 300 to 500 tons per day,
provided the Northport smelter
could accommodate them; but with
nearly 45,000 tons of ore stacked up
at Northport, it would be folly to

The mining and mineral exhibit
from Canada has been fortunate in
its installation. It occupies a very
large space on the ground floor.
The walls are decorated with numerous pictures of mines in this
country, showing rot only their
picturesque situation, but their ac-1
tual operations, thus giving a more
graphic presentation than volumes
of descriptive matter could convey.
Numerous geological maps, well executed, hang in place, appropriately
accompanied by geographical charts
showing location. Every section is
plainly labeled, and still further differentiated in being indicated by a spe
cial color. Ontario is marked pink,
the Northwest brown, New Brunswick green, Manitoba violet, British
Columbia yellow, Quebec red and
Nova Scotia blue.

from the exchange, and then de-

The brokers then found that in order to make good their sales they
had to buy the shares from Thorpe

malicious people to injure Mr.

On    another   stand    are   grouped
silver   lead   ores from the Slocan.
There are also  fine samples of native   silver   from Silver Mountain,
Lake  Superior.    Next  to this is a
stand containing copper ores   from
British   Columbia, the province of
Quebec and  the province of Ontario.   The  various copper ores   so
irridescent   and diversified   offer a
beautiful   appearance   and   attract
much  attention.    There is also an
exhibit  of copper  matte   obtained
from the smelting of the ores.
The intrinsic value of the mineral
exhibit from Canada,   including the
Klondike, is  estimated at $30,000.
Part of the collection  is  placed in
four burglar-proof glass cases protected by metallic covers.    Two of
the cases contain nuggets and gold
dust from  the alluvial  deposits of
British Columbia.    In the third one
are   specimens   from   the   famous

throughout  Europe,   and  are very
much  admired.    The chaplet   presented to the Rev. Father Gendreau,

The item of $2500 for a Normal
school in Vancouver, provided
for in the estimates, has excited
some curiosity, the sum being so
small that it was probably insufficient for the proper establishment of
such an institution. It is explained,
however, that the city of Vancouver
is offering the free use of school
rooms for the purpose, with heating,
lighting, etc., free to the province,
and that as the school cannot come
into operation until the beginning
of the year, $2^00 will be quite
sufficient to meet the charges for
salary for tbe remaining months of
the year, The necessity for a Normal school has been apparent for a
long time, and has been a standing
subject of agitation in educational
cities in the province.

A Camp for Homes
Vt  am glad that   manv of the
miners are building and occupying
their own  homes.    You can   have
no better guarantee for a permanent,
prosperous   and    well    conducted
mining camp.    The man who has
no stake or tie to bind him to your
community, and who, after causing
trouble,  can  pack his blanket and
tramp off elsewhere, is not likely to
be of much benefit to the town.    A
camp of homes, such as I have understood  this  is fast  becoming, is
the   best   safeguard    I   know ^of
against disturbance of any kind."
Satisfactory Itlauanenient
When told that the management
of   the mines   was   the subject  of
much local  criticism; that the real
trouble   was  alleged    to  be    not
men    so    much   as    the      mine
managers,   and    that    unpleasant
comparisons   with   the   B.   A. C.
properties were openly  made about
the camp and  that  the visit ot Mr.
Gooderham and  himself was confidently expected  to cause a speedy
change—Mr. Blackstock said: "We
are the last  people to hear these
tning and I am glad you have mentioned them, as I   do not think any
man or management  is above criticism.    Not being  a mining man, I
have to  rely solely  upon  our staff
for my  information.    Some  of the
matters you speak of I know about,
and I think that all  of them are capable of explanation.    We have the
utmost  confidence  in our manager
and you must remember that he has
had almost untold difficulties to contend  with.    We   know these   and
are quite satisfied  that  he will successfully   surmount    them    all   as
quickly as it is possible to do so.
Unreasonable   Legislation
Referring to the provincial legislature, Mr. Blackstock said:   "I am
strongly opposed   to some  of the
proposed legislation.    Mine owners
are   being   taxed   out of existence
and if it continues,   British  Columbia will be known  as  a good country for the capitalist to keep out of.
Just   to  the south of us   valuable
mining  properties  can be obtained
today, cheaper and on  better terms
than   in   British   Columbia.     You
may be sure that if you continually
drive the capitalist  from your door,
he   will stay   away for good,   and
without   capital and   plenty   of it,
your  mineral   resources  would   lie
dormant.    Is   it   wise?   Is it good
business   policy    to   hamper   and
frighten   away   the   investor? We
have time and again refused to consider tempting offers of mines elsewhere than  in   Canada,   chiefly because Mr.   Gooderham,   from  high
motives, thinks it his duty to invest
in Canadian  industries  in   place of
going   into    the    United    States.
Other capitalists  are  uot governed
by the same consideration,   but will
go where they  can   make the most
money.    Competition among capitalists for your properties is what is
most wanted   here   at the present
time to  promote  prosperity  for all
hands.    The whole trend of legislation in this province, in my opinion,
is along wrong  lines,  and perhaps
when it is too  late you  will find I
am right.
The Two Propertiee
"I am   going   to be   here some
weeks, and will thoroughly acquaint
myself   with   the   situation at  the
mines.   So far as the drop in stocks
is concerned,   neither  Mi. Gooderham nor myself have  dealt in them
at all, and up to  the last moment
before the drop came, our own relatives   and immediate  friends  were
the heaviest purchasers.   When the
shareholders heard my explanations
at the annual  meeting,   not a word
of hostile criticism was offered, and
I think they were more  than  satisfied with the statement given them.
Personally, we are in favor of amalgamating the  two   companies   but
the other shareholders would  probably object.      1  was   misquoted  in
Toronto in this   matter.      What  I
said was that shareholders of either
the   War   Eagle   or   Centre   Star
would object to having the stock of
the other unloaded on  them.      We
have    perfect   confidence   in   both
properties     and     I     would     not
be understood to  reflect  on  either
one at   the expense  of the  other.
We are perfectly well satisfied with

Liverpool Bealmeni Snftro Severely—
Heavy Caaualtlee on the 23d
London, Aug. 25.—Lord Roberts
has left Pretoria, and has fixed his
headquarters at Wonderfontein, the
second station west of Machadodorp,
where the bulk of the enemy's
hlrmy is supposed to be. Wiring
from them Aug. 24-, he says:
buiier  reports  the  Boers laid a
trap for his   cavalry   August   23,
opening with several  guns at fairly
short  range.      The   English   guns
silenced  the   Boers  but  when   the
firing ceased and   the  pickets were
being placed for the night, by some
mistake   the    Liverpool    regiment
advanced fifteen hundred yards into
a hollow out of sight of the  main
body, where they   were surrounded
by Boers and suffered severely. The
Liverpools lost  ten   men killed and
Capt. Plomor and fifty-five wounded.
In addition they had thirty-two men
missing.
Gen. Buller's other casualties
Aug. 23, were twenty men killed,
wounded or missing."
Lord Roberts also adds that Gen.
Pole-Carew occupied Belfast, near
Machadodorp, Aug. 24, without opposition.
Gen. French with several brigades of cava Iry is moving east 0

He Is Taken lu Chance by the Spokane
Authorities.
Kenneth Farririgton Bellairs, formerly of Rossland, has again been
taken into custody on the charge of
insanity. The Spokesman-Review
says:
"Kenneth Farrington Bellairs,
whose claim for $6,000,000 personal damages is now before the city
council, was arrested last evening
on a charge of insanity preferred by
Health Officer W. W. Potter. He
is confined at the county jail, pending examination on the charge.
"Since his release from the asylum he turned|his attention to industrial enterprises. He became interested in the industrial exposition
and, his atte'mpts to interest Mana- ]
ger Hawley proving unavailing, he
has written letters threatening suicide. These letlers have led to his
arrest, Mr. Hawley called the attention of the health officer to their
contents.
"Mr. Bellairs was taken in custody last night at Main avenue and
Division street. He was indignant
at the arrest. He asked the officer \
tor time to write four letters, and
his request was granted. One of
the letters was addressed to President McKinley, another to the British ministry, and the others to
friends in London."
London,   Aug.    25.—Forgetting
the Chinese   cryptogram   and  the
unending war in  South Africa and
the re-construction of that country,
the strike on a little one hundred
mile Welsh  railroad stirs up more
serious interest than anything else
in Eagland this week, because it is
closely related  to the coal  supply
and  the  manufacturing vitality  of
the kingdom.    The Taff Vale railroad   carries   the   product of fifty
thousand miners into Cardiff.    The
fifth day of the strike sees small
quantities of the  best steam  coal
commanding thity-five shillings. All
the Cardiff factories are  shut down
and thc merchant fleet are unable to
leave the harbor  because they have
not been supplied with coal.     Mist
of the mines  are still piling up coal
at the pit mouths.   All will probably
be idle in another week.    The cause
ot dispute is t.hat two thousand railway servants want  a half penny an
hour more  and  are  upheld in that
demand   by  the  union  of railway
men  of  the   United Kingdom with
£.'-•50,000 in the treasury and a strike
strike income of ^3,000 a week.
Interwoven with the discussion
anent the coal scarcity, trouble is
brewing everywhere in the world.
The Great Eastern men have handed
in an ultimatum demanding increased wages and threatening to strike
if this is refused.
The arrival in the Thames on
Thursday evening of the British
steamer Queenswood with four
thousand tons of coal, and the
sailing of the British steamer Arm-
stor from Norfolk, Virginia, on
Wednesday with four thousand tons
destined for Bantry Bay for the
British navy, afford a text on which
hangs abundant speculation. English writers point to America's
exhaustless coal supply and to the
ultimate certainity that large imports will be made from that
country.
WAR IN PROSPECT
France ard fingland May Take a
Turn At lt.
New Vork, Aug. 25.—"That the
French government is preparing for
war there can no longer be any
doubt." Th* Pall Mall Gazette
makes this statement editorially. It
but puts in concrete form what
newspapers in all parts of England
have been saying in a more veiled
way for three days, says a cable dispatch. There is absolutely no reason for war between France and
England, save the hatred of every
class of each nation for the other.
What specially has scared the
English are the French experiments
with submarine guns, but many
other French doings are having
their effect.
Philadelphia Clab Wins.
Paris, Aug. 25.—The crew ofthe
Vesper club of Philadelphia won

was 5 minutes 15 2-5 seconds. The
final heat will be rowed   tomorrow.

About It.
New Vork, Aug. 25.—"The fight
between Fitzsimmons and  Sharkey
last night,"   said    Charley White,
who   refereed   the   bout,   "though
short, was the best mill I ever  saw
and the best man won.    Both   men
displayed    great    gameness.    The
blow that knocked Fitz down   was
too high to be effective.    When the
ei.d came Sharkey stood the rain of
blows like the stoic   he  is.    When
nearly   gone   Fitzsimmons got  his
famous left  hook to  the jaw  that
won    the    fight.    Fitzsimmons   is
right in line for a return   match   for
the championship."
Fitzsimmons said: "I knew all
along that I would win, but really
I did not think that I would do it so
quickly. I expected that Sharkey
would last about five rounds. I
was in the best condition of my
life. Sharkey can hit harder than
Ruhlin and is a game fellow."
Scalded   Him
St. Thomas, Ont., Aug. 27.—
Glen Tyler, a Michigan Central railway engineer, is in a precarious
condition, suffering from a severe
scalding administered to him by
Mrs. Halbert, who alleges Tyler

scalding his head, face and arms,
legs and body. Mrs. Mrs. tHal-
bert has been arrested.

little speech in which she remarked:
"I am somewhat overwhelmed by
the clerical compliment, but he
might have said "sister."
DEATH    AT    THK   STAKE
All   American    at   Tangier*    Mobbed
aud   Hlirued
Tangiers  Aug.    27—A    Tilled
States warship has arrived   here   to
support the claim arising out of the
murder last June   of Marcus   Essa-
gin, a naturalized American citizen,
who was manager  for   the  French
firm of Brunswick &  Co.    Essflgin
while riding on   horseback   through
a narrow street   in   Tangier,   jolted
against    the   mule   of a   Morrocau
and  a   dispute   ensued,   the crowd
siding with the priest.     In   self defence Essagin drew his revolver and
fired; wounding a native.    This was
the signal for a   general  attack   on
the American, who received   dozens
of knife wounds,   and  whose   body
was burned, according to some   accounts, before life was  extinct.

familiar with the ground. If such le
the case it would be a mistake to
allo.v th'" 0 :.u'i:«sioiier of Lands and
Works lo remain under the misunderstanding that the only toute for Hie

New Denver. Accordingly a uiemoriai-
was drawn up here last week and
forwarded to the Commissioner of
Linds and Works nt Victoria, asking
thnt Iiefore work was start'-d on tlu*
proposed road, proper surveys be
made both from 7-icw Denver and from
Silverton and the road built where the
beat grade could be secured for the
money. This seems to be a very
reasonable request. The Ftatement
made in the last issue of The Ledge
that the citizens here were petitioning
to have the road built to Silverton is
about as correct as The L_edge usually

Next vear the decennial ensus cf

to be hoped that it * ill not be the
disappointment that our last census
was, but will show a substantial increase in both wealth and population
for Canada,
If we are retaining (he immigrants
