not forthcoming they demand that

Tokio, Dec. 30.
Vice Admiral Kainimura, with their
staffs, arrived at the Shimbass station al 11.30 o'clock today. Their
ourncy from Kurc to Tokio was a
r'ontinuous ovation. At an early
hour to-day the streets were filled
.mil the cily gaily decorated with
lags, lanterns, and Now -Years decorations.     Representatives   of    the
mperor , Empress, Prince Furhimi,
statesmen, prominent citizens and
thousands ot school children greeted
the arrival of tllc naval. heroes at
the station. The presidents of both
houses ot Ihc diet presented them

hands. Finally Admiral Togo and
[Vice Admiral Kamimura were freed
from their enthusiastic admirers and
surrounded by officers, they reached
the carriage sent by the Emperor to
the station to convey the distinguish...
ed party to the palace.
As Admiral Togo appeared a great
shout arose, hats were thrown into
the air, arms were raised, "Banzai"
was cried. Preceded by gendarmes,
the party drove under a triumphal
arch waving Hags and -discharging
fireworks through thc cheering crowd
to the navy department, where a
brief slop was made during which the

Folsom, Cal Doc. 30.-OI the nine break were all employed in the rock
convicts who yesterday made a break crusher, where 325 of the most des
perate prisoners werc at work. Capt.

sCBr about the rock crusher, and lour
other prison attaches, L. I), Lay, A.
Hogan, C. S. Taylor and Charles
Jolly, werc employed as "pushers"
lo keep the men at work. A largo
sledge hammer was thrown into the
crusher, causing the ponderous machine to come to a stop and this attracted Captain Murphy, Charles
Jolly and Taylor to the place. Thtirc-

guards on the outside could not see

had    an intimation that something
was wrong.   The convicts, with.tlielr

gathered about electric light and ils

bear out his remarks. He said that

thence down near tho scene. He signalled the guards to continue sboot-

ZINC PLANT
IN KOOTENAY
(Associated Press Despatches.)
It has been definitely decided that
thc zinc smelter will be, located at
Frank. Work on its erection will be
roiiinieneeil at once, or as soon as
preliminary, matters can he arranged
.mil it is the intention of Mr. Fcr-
rraii ami his associates to prosecute
the work all winter with the idea of
being ready to begin operations early next season. To enable the work
to he carried ail (Hiring the winter
it is stated that thc buildings will
lie erected first without permanent
foundations and that when these are
up, it will be practicable to lay tllc
foundations inside them without I'an-
gcr of tlic masonry being injured by
the Irost. The plant to begin with
is to be built on a basis ol a thousand retorts, with the idea ol increasing the capacity as circumstan-,
ces warrant. The principal business
ol the proposed smelter is, of course,
to treat ores tor zinc, but it will
also treat silver and lead ores. The
company expects to treat, the zinc
ores ol the ffloolwnays and to the
end that the cheapest possible treatment charges may obtain, the mines
ot Britisli Columbia zinc ores will be
expected to concentrate at the various concentrating plants now in operation., or in course ol construction,
and the ores be shipped to the Frank
smeller in the form of concentrates.

CABINET RESIGNS.
Bucharest,   Hniimnnia,     Dec.   30—
U today's session of tlie senate Premier    si mils   announced that tbe
whole cabinet had resigned owing to
AT WEINROBE'S.
By a call at Weinrobe's on High
street it was learned that it is the
intention ot Mr. Weinrobc early in
the seasan to erect a new and como-
dious store. Tllc location, the proprietor states, has not yet liecn decided upon, but it will be central and
convenient. Incidentally the visit
showed a large and varied assortment, ol ladies' customs skirts, cra-
venctte coats, etc., in stock at Weinrobe's. The stock shows up well not
only lor a small town like Lgdjrsmitli
but would compare favorably witli
many large drygoods houses in cities
of many times its size. As be has
a large stock ol spring goods on its
way, he stales that he must close
out a large part of his present stock,
lor he n,',st have room, and he makes the following announcement that
unlil further, notice he will sell oft
bis slock ns above mentioned at 35
por cent, less than manufacturers'
prices. This should give the people
ol Ladysinith a chance that docs not,
often occur to buy goods at less than
two-thirds their actual cost.

GOOD OLD SPORTS.
The seventeen men who have figured as presidents of the C.L.A. are to
meet 'in Toronto on December 20th to
receive the medals they earned while
doing the work for the big lacrosse
body,    says the Toronto Telegram.
That they are all alive yot is another
splendid  tribute lo Canadian endurance.   No other sporting body    can
boast an unbroken body ol past presidents to   the number of seventeen
alive, ami all still able and willing
to talk lacrosse.
WOMAN SHOT.
Miss Florence Lewis, the best lady
rifle shot in England, is about tlo
make her home in the Dominion. No
woman has made such ucorcs as Miss
Lewis made this summer at Bisley,
since Miss Leal, ol Guernsey, shot
there during the early nineties. At
Ihc 500 and 000 yard ranges she
can generally score 28 points, at
least, out of a possible 35.

Toronto exchange.  It is not likely
that Scholcs will entertain such     a
thought, lor his lather is more than
adverse tn it.   "Lou" might defeat
Towns, hut it would make him     a
professional, and he is not anxious to
become   one.  Lou, like his mother
lack did in boxing, has readied   tlie

All thc details ot the organization
have .pot yet 'been completed, but
the bank probably will be situated
conveniently to the great holds, restaurants and thc theatre district. It
will be conducted on the lines ol a
state bank and be open day and
night. There will always he on hand
a large emergency lurid. In order to
do this It will have at least two
forces ol clerks. It will receive deposits at any time and bo prepared
to cash checks lor Its patrons, no
matter when the bits ol paper are
presented.
Owing to tho heavy expenses of tlie
institution necessitated by the employment ol a double clerical lorce,
the bank will.pay no interest on deposits. Another feature ol the Institution will be the safety deposit
department. Women returning Irom
the opera, will, by Itiis means, be
able to deposit their jewels without
the risk of losing them over night.
