 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  "*3-  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  THURSDx\r MORNLTO JUNE 14 J900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS  MAY INTEREST ROWING MEN  club  V  All Sorts of Sports.  The officers  of tlio  rowing  aro inaugurating  nn   active   campaign,  for  new member.*,  ancl   are  meeting with considerable  success,  despite the fact  that the present is  not a particularly favorable juncture to raise  funds.    The  oarsmen  hold .nn unusually good brief, however,  and'the'membership of the  dub will probably be doubled as a  result of their efforts.    If they had  gone   into   the   undertaking    two  months earlier the task would have  bi^en much easier, and  the outcome  far more  satisfactory, though it  is  better late  than  never.     Nelson's  . facilities for boating are,  perhaps,  unequalled in the  province, and no  legitimate  reason  exists   why the  rowing club should not be the pre-  m'er sporting  organization  in  the  city, except that lack of funds has  hampered the  management  up  to  the  present.    It i.s  not  surprising,  however,   that  the   club   has  not  .prospered  as it  should have  done.  The*.- facilities   at   the  club  house  have uot  been such as   to   attract  members except among those  who  enthuse over  the pastime and are  content to go in for the sport under  any conditions.    The present management have  ambitious  views as  to' the program for the future,  and  if they succeed in carrying through  their ideas,  the  rowing  club- will  prosper.    What   is required   as   a  starter is a  neat  club  house,   not  necessarily   of elaborate  architectural   design,  but one  which   will  have     an     abundance     of"   rack  rjom, well appointed shower baths  and a couple of comfortable sitting  rooms with, perhaps, a sniill  gymnasium.     Such an   institution  attracts a large  number  of persons  who would never thiuk of affiliating  with the  club  under present  conditions, and would make tho club a  live social organization, thereby en  miring   its  pio��perifcy.    The   great  difficulty iu tluvway of accomplishing such an undertaking  is  one of  finances, but this can be solved by  forming a joint stock company and  M'Siin^-shares to prospective members.   'It has beon accomplished  in  a  dozen  Canadian  cities   with   no  more enterprise than has marked  tho   growth   of rNelson,   and   thoj  present season, with its regatta and  water carnival is a roost auspicious  moment to float the venture.  The ^ Rossland eleven will be  matched to play here, however,  aud failing this a team match may  be put on. Nelson can turn out a  really good cricket team if the system of choosing players solely on  their merits is adhered to unflinchingly.  The bear killed on Mouday night  by Leu Gobey was probably the  first in this province to fall to a  regulation military rifle charged  Avith a steel clad bullet and cordite  explosive, in view of which the  effect of the shot is of interest to  sportsmen. Bruin was not over 75  yards away-when Gobey fired, and  the bullet struck him behind the  shoulder, passing clean through.  TJie bear ran a short distance and  then stretched but stone dead. The  projectile had passed through the  outer covering of the heart, causing.  paralysis. In entering"'the bullet  made a tiny mark, not large enough  to admit a lead pencil, and had  passed out of a similar hole without  tearing the flesh iu its passage,  which is not remarkable considering that its velocity for the first  500 yards is,at a speed of 2,000 feet'  per second with a penetration in  the same ratio. Scarcely a drop of  blood escaped from the points of  entrance or exit. Alex Grant hit  another of the-bears with a Winchester, but the animal carried the  bullet away, leaving a trail of blood.  The members of the Nejson Rifle  Association are determined that if  they do not make good scores.it  will aiot be for want of practice.  Six riflemen were practicing yesterday afternoon, and their scores are  appended. .11.

A  subscription list will be circulated,  aud it is stated that a substantial  amount is already assured.  Nelson will be well represented in  the Dominion day sports, particularly in the sprinting. Among  those in training for the sprinting  events _ are_George_ Nunn, -Kirby  1 JtouglabS and JoeThompson. George  Nium's ability as a sprinter  i.s well known. His best performance was at .Winnipeg, when he  made the 100 yards in ten seconds  fl it. In this race he strained a ten-  dun and has never been quite fio  good since, < although the injured  tendon lias been slowly improving.  Nunn starts active training tonight  aud if lie enters the competitions  the balance of the runners will  have to travel to win-out. Joe  Thompson is also a well known  .'-printer, his favorite race being the  220 yard dtuJi. At Ka*lo Thompson won out hands down, and will  be faster than ever for the celebration. Kirby Douglass is an old  timer, having held the championship of the Pacific coast. Jle is  more or less of a dark horse here,  but beat several fast men at Silver-  ton on May 24, and is sure of a  share of the purses on JDominion  Day if he keep1* in condition, Tom  Henderson, who is running with the  iirc team, is said to be contemplating a shy at tho 220 yard purse. He  has never run here, but is known  to be a fast man, ancl liis friends  predict that ho will finish well "up  in the bunch. Another new man is  training regularly near the reservoir on the hill and may give some  of the fast men a close run iu the  100 and 220 yard events.  The local cricketers are beginning  to bestir themselves in the direction of arranging a game for June  30, or one of the" demonstration  days. Lack of a suitable crease has  put a damper on cricket in Nel-  bou, and the club has not reorganized for the season up to date.  The association football club now  numbers   fifty-two   members,  and  gives every indication of being a  live organization.   A meeting took  place last night ^at tho Waverley  hotel, 28 members being present.  After several names had been added  to the membership roll the  matter  of holding a tournament  hare .during the Dominion.  Day celebration  was gone into.   A communication  was read from the Silverton  team  expressing    their   willingness    to  come here on July 3rd, while Trail  was reported as doubtful aud Kaslo  not heard from.    In view of the  heavy expense involved in pulling  off the   tournament,  the meeting  concluded to cut the affair down to  asingle game with one or other of  the well known.outside teams.  The  matter of choosing this club and  completing arrangements was leffc  to tho executive.   An application  will   be   made  to the celebration  committee for a grant toward paying the expenses   of  the visiting  team   and   purchasing   a   trophy.  The   meeting    then    directed    its  attention to the immediate necessi-  ties_of the _olub.    A_discussion_re-  garding practice nights resulted in  Monday    and     Thursday    nights  being    selected     for    full    practices,    the     understanding    being  that  tho othor athletic" organizations aro agreeable.    Goal posts are  to be erected at once, and as these  are located at the extreme ends of  the fields the footballists ean kick  iu goal any night in the week without interfering  with other sports.  J). \\\ Dewar was elected coaeher,  his   duties*   being    to   officiate   as  referee during   practices,   arrange  tho players and coach them in team  .play. ._ Other matters of minor importance were gone into and an adjournment   made   to a later date,  when the committees will report.  The baseball sports who havo  predicted disaster'for the Nelson  ball team on their forthcoming trip  to Spokane, will be reassured on  learning that the Blair college team  defeated the Spokane Athletic Association nine, against whom Nelson  will be pitted, by 11 runs to 6 on  Tuesday. Blair was beaten badly  here last summer, and was turned  down hard at Rossland last month.  Nolson has beaten Rossland twice,  and Rossland trimmed Blair twice.  The inference is that Nelson is a  better team than Blair, and if Blair  beats the .Spokane Athletic club  outfit, Nelson should certainly do  likewise.  Sam Neelands is out of the ball  game for a week or two at least.  He was trying to bat a few of  Roekenfield's inshoots, when one of  them landed on his ribs under the  left arm, A large swelling raised  at once, and Neelands is too sore to  practice.  NEWS FROM THE TRANSVAAL  South African Items.  London, June .14.���4 a.m.���The  dispatch from lord Roberts clearing  up the situation at Pretoria and  along the communications stands  alone, military observers noting  that ho mention is made of prisoners, assume that general Dewet got  away with his forces intact.  General Buller entered Volkerst  on Wednesday, passed through  Charleston and  Laing's Nek. The  much damaged  blown up, but the  that the repairs can be  four days.  The advance troops of general  Buller saw the Boer rear guard  four- miles distant yesterday. It  was estimated that 8000 Boers were  withdrawn. The townspeople at  Ermelo counted 15 guns. Three  hundred Free Staters released from  guarding duty have gone to join  president Steyn's force in the eastern part of Orange River Colony.  General Rundle has sent notice to  the Free Staters that unless they/  surrender by.Jiine 15th their farms  and other possessions will be confiscated.  President Kruger, according to a  dispatch from Lorenzo : Marquez,  keeps a locomotive fcwith steam up  attached to; the car in whi^b. he  concentrates the executive office of  the government, and he intends to  leave Machadorp soon and to establish the Transvaal capital at Nel-  spruit, in the mountains, a fine defensive region.  The .state printing press is at  Machadorp, producing leaflets containing Avar news for distributing  among the Boers.  It is again reported at Lorenzo  Marquez that the Boers are advancing through Swasiland  free from auy imputation of ulterior motives. J<  It was stated that the Belgian  secretary of the legation at Pekin,  was probably Philip May, formerly  with the Belgian legation in Washington, aud prominent in social and  official circles.  Lord Roberts, it appears, has  countermanded the order given to  Strathcona's Horse to land -on the  coast and to penetrate to tho  Transvaal through the' Swasi  country.  Mr. Schreiner, the premier, and  his colleagues, resigned last night.  Sir Alfred Milner accepted their  resignation.    ' '  General Buller's casualties on  June 10 have been issued by the  war office. They were 27 killed,  177 wounded, 3 missing. ~  The Portuguese government is  again reported as fearing that the  Boers will enter Delagoa bas' when  forced to retreat from Lydenburg.  The Portuguese have only 1500  troops in East Africa and would be  powerless to prevent an incursion.  UNITED STATES' VIEW OF IT  Chinese Situation.  Washington, June 13.���The  state department has heard nothing" officially "about the reported  killing of the American missionary  and Japanese secretary of legation  at Pekin. In fact, nothing has  been heard from Conger since his  cable last night up to the close of  office hours. Tho news of the killing of an American missionary  caused a shock at the department,  where it is realized that thin adds  greatly to the gravity of the problem awaiting settlement by the  United States.  Definite official information was  received today from the foreign  office of one of the most important  continental powers, stating that  the Tsung Li Yamen iiad notified  the minister of that power at Pekin  that the dowager empress would  not object to the presence of foreign  troops to China territory.  The, empress dowager's acqui-  " escence in the plans of the powers  is felt to remove a threatened complication, and at tbe same time to  give evidence that the empress  dowager is no longer yielding to  the anti-foreign clamor.  In official Russian quarters the  rumor that tho empress dowager  has sought a refuge at the Russian  legation in Pekin is discredited,  and is resented as a bit of inspired  intrigue designed to create the impression that Russian sympathy is  with the anti-foreign element. It  is pointed out that Russia's course  has been marked by the utmost reserve, for while it would have been  possible at any time to land forces  in China, the Russian force actually  landed has been comparatively insignificant, mainly for the reason  that Russia desired to be whollv  CHINESE PREPARE TO FIGHT  Guns Trained on Embassy.  London, June 14.���The Chinese  are entrenching outside of Pekin to  oppose* the advance of the international column.  A dispatch from.Tien Tsin, dated  Tuesday, June 12tl|,'.says: "I learn  that the Chinese have gims trained  on the American mission and the  British legation. , Two thousand  Russian cavalry,, with artillery,  have lauded at Taku."  A dispatch from St. Petersburg  says that the ships of the Russian  Pacific squadron bii the active list,  as well as those at Vladivostock,  have been ordered to proceed with  quick dispatch to ^Chinese waters.  The'foreign office confirms the report of the engagement between  the troops of the international col-  /'unin and the Boxers on Monday.  It says that 30 or 40 were killed.  IN BELEAGUERED COOMASSIE  Short of Ammunition.  London, June 13.���The following  dispatch has been received "at the  colonial office f rom/colbnel. Wilcock  in command of the Ashantee l'elief  expedition:  "PnAHSir, Juno 12.���A letter just  received from the governor of the  Gold   Coast    (sir   F. H. Hodgson)  dated Coomassie, June' Jth, is as  brief as possible. ��� The following is  its substance: On| several occasions unsuccessful attempts have  been made to get off letters. He  informs me he enclosed a copy of  another en May Oth_which I have  not received. Coomassieis garrisoned  by 700 native -troops under-' command of major Harris, acting commissioner and commandant of the  northern territory, who has succeeded iu entering the place from  the north." The "Europeans and  other troops are on short rations.  The supplies of ammunition at Coomassie are not sufficient to allow of  offensive measures and must be  husbanded in ease of reinforcements not arriving. Tho march for  the relief of Coomassie will be met  by^a great number of rebels, who  have constructed stockades and  put obstacles in the way.  "The state of health of the Coomassie force is good, but 3000 persons of the native community are  in a state of destitution. Immediate assistance is required.  "The reinforcements which have  reached Gold Coast, most of which  have crossed the Prah, comprise 100  of the Lagos force, 50 of the Sierra  Leone frontier poliec,-with-Maxim*  and field guns. There are, in addition, the Gold Coast Constabulary  and Gold Coast police. Further reinforcements of 900 meu are being  sent from Sierra Leone and northern Nigeria, and will reach Cape  Coast Castle in a few days.  DOUBLE  BRITISH  VICTORY  In Transvaal .and Free State.  London, June 13���[Special to The  Tribune!.���After a week's silence  lord Roberts has been heard from,  his line of communications having  been practically restored by means  of a complete victory gained by  generals Methuen and Kitchener  over general Dewet at the; Rhenoster river yesterday, June 12th. The  Boer camp was captured and the  burghers were scattered in all  directions.  A lengthy dispatch forwarded to  the war office by major-general  Knox from Kroonstadt, presumably  sent there by messenger, reads as  follows:  "Kroonstadt, June" 12.���We have  been requested to forward you  from lord Roberts the following  dispatch from the Pretoria presidency at 8:08 a.m. today:  "Pretoria, June 12.���Pretoria and  Johannesburg are perfectly quiet  and several of the inhabitants have  expressed gratitude for the peace  and order which prevails.  "After surrendering the city Botha  retired to a place about 15 miles  east of the Middleburg road. He  had a small force at first, but. dur-:  ing the last few days his numbers  have increased and his being so  near the town kept, up the excitement in the country, prevented the  burghers from laying down their  arms and interfered with the collection of supplies. It therefore  became necessary to attack him.  This I did yesterday..  " ' He held a very strong position,  practically unassailable in front,  which enabled him to place the  main portion of his troops on his  flanks, which he knew from former  experience were his vulnerable  parts. I sent French with Porter's  and* Dixon's cavalry brigades and  Hutton's mounted infantry round  by our left, aud I an,Hamilton with  Broadwood's and Gordon's cavalry  brigades, ^ Ridley's mounted riiies  and ' Bruce 'Hamilton's infantry  brigade,right "round by our right.  Both columns met with great opposition.  " 'At about three in the afternoon  [ saw two of Hamilton's infantry  battalions advancing to what appeared to be the key of the enemy's  defence on their left flank.. This  was almost gained before dark, and  I ordered the 'force to bivouac on  the ground they had won.' "  afforded by the police department  and. the sheriffs  posse comitatus.  It   Avas   stated by the company's  officials that cars were running on  every line in the city, going above  the regular schedule in some cases,  and on all meeting the demands of  traffic.     More   men are now   employed by the company than there  is work for them  to do, according  to general manager Baumhoff, and  not   only is the force being constantly increased by men coming in  from other cities, but from the ranks  of the strikers themselves, he stated.  Tonight cars   are  running on all  lines on about the same schedule as  last night.   Lines to the north and  south are  still  guarded by police,  but in the central and western portions there was no trouble, and the  police have been in a great measure  withdrawn  from the cars. :   This  permits the strengthening of the  forces along the southwestern and  southern divisions.    The Southern  electric line is in operation tonight  for the first time since the strike  was inaugurated.   This line is regarded in police circles as the most  difficult of all the lines* to run safely  after dark.   Every precaution was  taken to prevent interference and  violence.   This line traverses   the  district   where,   two    weeks   ago,  seven   persons   were wounded  by  bill lets in one day.  Mrs. Gladstone Dying.  London.

Y., June 13.���  Expert witnesses at the Bonham  murder trial today. Dr. .John Miller  and professor Herbert Hill of  Buffalo, agreed there was unknown  instance where there was light  colored blood iti the viscera half an  hour after death from acid, but  neither agreed in full with authorities whose statements havc been  read during the trial. None of the  experts sworn have fully agreed  with the authorities read on technical chemistry. The most important testimony of the morning was  given by A. Hamilton, a chemist of  Auburn, to whom the syringes, found  in Ben ham's house had been  taken for examination. He described his analysis and liis examinations and said he found on the  syringe evidence of the disease  which it is claimed Benham's wife  contracted from him, for which it  is alleged she used prussic acid as a  douchere. He said that the rubber  of the syringe, which had been vulcanized, contained oxide of zinc  which would absorb and retain acid  if ifc should touch it. and that lie  made tests in the presence of witnesses and found acid indications.  This testimony substantiates the  theories of the defence and attorney  Rice for tbe prosecution endeavored to shake ifc on cross-examination, but without effect.  Awaiting Official News.  Ottawa, June 13.���[Special to  _The Tribune.]���In the-house-fcoday-  eolonel Prior asked if' the government had sent instructions to tho  lieutenant governor of British  Columbia.  Laurier���"I may inform my honorable friend that I have not sent  any instructions to the lieutenant  governor of British Columbia. The  lieutenant governor has appealed to  tho people of fche province and the  answer is in their hands."  Clarke reminded the premier of  what he had previously said in the  house, and therefore wanted to  know if.thc governor was to be recalled, or what was to be done in  tho matter considering the decision  jr>f the majority that was against  him.  Laurier. - "The question, i.s not  one to be treated wifch levity. The  elections only took place on Saturday. The exact result is not yet  known. The government will not  take any action on newspaper reports. We must have something  official before us,"  Monk gave notice today of a motion for selecting a committee to  enquire into the quality of the  emergency food supplied by the  militia department to the Canadians in South Africa by Dr. Dou-  lin of Montreal, the charge being  that ifc was of bad quality.

Washington, June 13.���The cabinet meeting today was attended by  secretaries Hay, Hitchcock, Long  and Gage, and postmaster-general  Smith. It was devoted largely to  the discussion of the Chinese situation. Secretary Hay laid before  the cabinet dispatches from minister Conger, wliich indicate that; the  situation is very critical. The steps  that have been taken to reinforce  admiral Kempff were gone over.  It was decided to stand by tho  policy which has been entered upon  of pushing measures for the protection of lives and property of  American citizens and acting inde  pendently as far as possible. Ifc  may be that in the accomplishment  of this result the" forces of the powers will have   to   ar-*- in_ imisoi! ,)fov  the protection of "all luiei^u residents in the disturbed districts, bufc  that is the extent of A meriean activity. The Chinese government will be  looked to under the general law.s of  the comity of nations to restore  order and to make 'snch reparation  as is proper. From any political  schemes in whicli many of the  powers may become involved, the  United States is to hold aloof. This  is the general,policy heretofore outlined and it will be adhered to. The  navy department has cabled to rear  admiral Kempff afc Taku to inform  him thafc marine reinforcements  have been ordered to him from  Manila.  Dixon rights a Draw.

The confession has been  wired to the Montreal police, under  the possible belief that the crime  may have been committed, and  that Martin's mind may have become unhinged through remorse.  German  Press Opinion.  Bhhmn, June 13.���-The South  African war receives but little attention just now. The Zeifcung  says : "There is a good chance that  tho Boers will maintain themselves  in the Lydenburg and Zoutpans  district where they will establish a  new stronghold, leaving the Rand  to the English. Guerrilla warfare  may be kept up without diminution for a considerable time to  come/'  ELEVEN NEW WAR VESSELS  America's New Navy.  New York, June 13.���A special  to the Tribune from Washington  says:        "  The navy is to   build   warships  aggregating   over   $100,000,000   in  cost as soon as the builders are prepared to undertake this great program, which  calls for  11  armored  ships, practically doubling the present American sea   power   iu this  class,   and   for   three   highly   improved Olynipia 'type of cruisers.  The five battleships for whose hulls,  and machinery' congress has appropriated $18,000,000 are ready for.  the builders to bid upon tomorrow.  Plans for the six   great  armored  cruisers, more. powerful than airship afc   present-in   service, .and to  cost for hulls and machinery alone  over $25,000,000, are well advanced,  and   should    be  finally  approved"  next month.    The  general features  of the enlarged Olynipia type were  determined  last  fall   before   congress  appropriated   $2,800,000 for  the hull and machinery for each of  them, and there is no reason why  their keels should nofc be laid  this  summer.  The navy department is also preparing the specifications and advertisements for 35,000 tons of the  highest quality of Kruppi/.ed  armors, which is expected: to cost  between $17,000,000 and $19,000,-  000. The' complete construction  program authorizes contracts for  hulls and machinery alone amounting to $51,900,000, which includes  five battleships at $3,(500,000 each,  six cruisers at $4,200,000 each, and  three improved Olympias at $2,500,-  000 each.  The   battleships   known   as the  Pennsylvania class are to be nearly  16,000   tons displacement, or over "  5,000 tons heavier than the Oregon,  more than 100 feet longer and with  at least three knots higher speed.  The six eruiseis of the California  class, of 11,000 tons, 23 knots speed  and 18 knots steaming radius,  will  .!,'j 'unmatched in the world..' They  will be h,Ul)U'-om larger  than  the'  Brooklyn    and    at " 'least;     three  times     as     powerful '   for  = lighting     uses.      All     these     vcsbels  will   ' be      armor     coated      from  the extreme bow to stern, and will  be the most  formidable  ships  yet  laid down in any dock yards.     The  three protected  cruisers of aboufc  10,000  tons   displacement   will   be  just about twice the Olympia's si/.e,  but   will   preserve - the   excellent  .characteristic;} of that vessel which '  have proved her to be about the  most xiseful type of cruiser now in t  iho service.   These three new vessels, which   are   to be  named   for  cities, will havo a coal  capacity for.  steaming three times across the Atlantic, and their maintained  speed  will be 23 knots.        -  Tiie secretary of fche navy .has  _alsq been directed by the last naval __  appropriation act to contract for  five Holland submarine boats to  cost $175,000 each and to be' built  within a year.

COTTON   KING'S   FAILURE,  fliiftooii millions of dollars is al-  mosb it record-breaking figure in the  list of Now York failures, bub ib is  t'ho amount seb down to represent  the liabilities of Price, McCormick  <te Co., the brokers who were forced  to make an assignment yesterday  jsml close their doors. Jt wtis not a  stock exchange failure, though the  lirm was largely interested in stocks,  j 1 iiit a cotton exchange suspension  that affected, most materially the  market of that product of the south  and tho dealers from Boston fco Galveston. Ic was bhe result of bold  bub nob well considered operations  in cotton extending over several  months, and simply adds another,  i.'istauce to the discouraging record  of-attempts ..to-"cornei1" a staple  that has ended in disaster.  Vet Theodore TI. Price, the head  of  the firm, has  been  a prominent  ligure   iu   the   cobton  market   for  years, and probably knows more of  the  trade and  its'conditions "than  any other man.  ' His: lather was a  member    of   the   house   of   Price,  Marsh & Co., in its time one of the  largest iu the city.   "The young man  began his career ab an early tige,  starting in Norfolk,  Va., bub came  back bo New York  a dozen years  ago, and since that time has done  more  to  revolutionize the   export  trade   than  any of his  associates:  He was .the first to use a private  telegraph wire' for his own business,  and that.feature under his manage-,  ment has been developed to such an  extent thab today the private wires  of the firm extend to every important  cotton-trading  point   in   the  country.    J le organized t>he lirm of  Prico,    McCormick     &���  Co.      live  > ears    ago.      His     partners     are  \\.      G.    McCormick,     ilaiph    C.  M. _ Stuart-WorUcy,    ami    (Joorge  C'tocJ.er,      Mr.    McCormick    is    a  nephowof Cyrus MoCoimiek.i'o'.inrt-  v.\ of bhe great Chicago reaper miiun-  facburifig    concern.      Mr.    .Sbuart-  \Voitloy is a  rion-in-Iaw of rear-admiral Schley, aud is now in Europe.  Mr. Crocker coiiips from San hYan-  ci^ca.    He has half a million invested in the house.  The magnitude of the bufcine^s  transacted by Price. McCormick &  Co. may he ab least partially understood i'ronl the fact* that at their  down-town offices. Xo. 70 Broad-  v.vy, they employed one Iiunthed  and six bookkeepers, clerks, steno-  graphoiv. and telegraph operators.  Thousands, of telegrams were sent  out daily, and it has been no unusual thing for the wages of messenger boys, called to-iiie messages  at outside telegraph offices, to  amount to seventy-five dollars  weekly, ab a rate of two cents for  _<"ich telcgijuiijilctl. This iu addition to the expense of the private  wire& iu tho office, which was not  le-s. than twelve hundred and fifty  dollars a day. Branch offices wore  established in a score of cities, and  iho agents of the firm covered  nvory part uf the cotton-producing  country.  The ^notice' of tho suspension of  payment was given out soon after  noon, and it was a surprise to nearly  till member^ of the ��tock exchange,  though rumors tha'ta big house whs  in trouble had been afloat since  Monthly. The assignee is XV. .1.  Curtis, of bhe law lirm of Sullivan  4V Cromwell. William Nelsou  (Yonruell of this firing who will  havo charge of the affairs of the  suspended house, has au enviable  record in assignment cases. _. He  was the assignee of Ilowe.ll,' Decker  A; Co , the brokers carried down in  tho Vdlarcl failure ten years .ago,  and in two months settled np the  a 1 fairs, paying creditors in full bo  llio amount of bwel\e millions of  dollars, and enabling the firm to re-  Hiime business. .No failure in Xew  York .since thab time lias had so  Urge a list of liabilities until the  piesent dUaster occmred.  The cotton market has not been  Mich a bed of quicksands for speculators as the wheat market, yet tho  ti'dcle has seen some great i oversea,  nnd the notable ones have crushed  operators whose experience and  daring put them in the front rank.  A little more than ten years ago,  Solomon Hanger, a Li verpool broker,  utienipted to "corner" the pioduot,  and loot a fortune in the collapse  that marked the ruin of liis plans.  Jn  New   Orleans,  five   years  ago.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  Peter Labouisse, who had become  one of.the most prominent members  of the cotton' exchange, went down  in a panic and was swept into  obscurity. A year later, .John II.  iuman, who had been on tho right  side during l/ibouisse's effort -to  hold up prices'and profitted largely  by the fall, started a "corner" on  his own account, and failed as so  many had done before him. The  i'millions he had amassed during a  long and successful career .in the  trade melted away like snow, and  ho was forced to retire, a bankrupt.  His death followed speedily.  A single reverse, however, seldom  conquers the spirit of one who has  known what it is to ride the stormiest waves of success, aiid there is  little doubt that Theodore Price  will climb back to his old place in a  few years. The assignee intimates  that there will be no great loss to  creditors, and ib is reported that  even Mr. Crocker's special invest-  meut will nob be sacrificed. Ibis  certain that the failure did not  make even a ripple in Wall Street,  and the disposition of those who  hold the embarrassed firm's notes  and bouds seems to be that of consideration, with no desire to crowd  matters to an extremity.  The day of the disaster-was to  have seen the head of the firm take  a good-by look at single-blessedness.  Mr. Price had-invited his bachelor,  friends to a farewell dinner,, se.b for  lasb evening, but .the entertainment  .was,���-.r of course, deferred. His  marriage to Miss Harriet Eugenia  Dyer was set for Monday of next  week, and the probilifcy of its postponement brought many expressions of regret aud sympathy from  friends of the couple. ?

The tortuous course of this one  vine, when brought out by his  brush, appears, to the Avestern art  critic, as crude and without merit,  whereas, in reality, it is full of interest. The greatest merit of their  work lies in the abiliby to touch  the characteristics of natural objects.        ^   RELIEVER  OF  MAFEKING.  PROHIBITION   IN   MANITOBA.  The following outline of the pro-,  hibibion measure to be introduced  iu the legislature by premier Macdonald. is published by a Winnipeg paper: TJie act, which will  come into force June i, 1901, makes  provision fos- the entire closing of  all places whoi e liquor is sold, both  in bulk or by the glass, with the  exception of drug stores, which are  permitted to sell under very stringent regulations, chiefly under orders of a physician, and for illness  only.' Any person caught infringing the act will be subject to a fine  of nob less than $200 and  not more than $1000 for  the first offence,- and imprisonment of not le.is than threo  mouths "v\ibh hard labor without  the option of a line for the second  breach. TJie wholesalers and manufacturers will not be materially  affected, as they are protected by  tho Dominion laws of trade and  commerce, but so far as this province is'concerned they will not derive one cent of revenue, except  from liquor allowed to drug stores.  Under the act they are prohibited  from making sales of any kind iu  the province except* in the instances  stated, bub will still have the power  to  import  or to  manufacture  for  _f vndo outs-ide_the .province They  will be prohibited from giving free  drinks or dispensing liquor by bhe  bobble or flask to tlieir friends.  Auother feature of the act will be  that no man can import liquor by  the bobble, flask, cask, or auy other  way for Jlis own private use. .It  was still the hope of many that  that they would be able to bring ia  their daily "stint".from 'Toronto or  elsewhere, bub even this consolation  is denied them. Por the enforcement ot those regulations provision  ia made by way of giving the in-'  spcetor i'nl!.powers of .search, etc.,  and ample rewards for convictions.  The promoters of the measure claim  that the intention is to show that a  full prohibitory law can be enforced  despite the arguments of their  opponents to the contrary.  Japanese Designs.  The system by which the'Japanese are taught the art of designing  is largely responsible for the peculiar character of their work. The  Japanese student who is taught  di awing is given a small book, in  which the designs are printed in  small squares, until he has grasped  the salient feature of each. He is  then sent out into the open country, and told to observe the works  of nature spread out before him in  all their luxuriance. Finding some  suitable object for his attention, he  proceeds to reproduce the same, introducing, perhaps, some imaginative detailb. It is here that the  system of squares comes in. Those  elegant stems and feathery petals,  which are apparently thrown together without restraint, are really  The reliever of Mafeking, says  tiie Loudon Daily Mail, is now officially announced to have been brevet-colonel Bryan Thomas Mahon,  D. S. b., of the Eighth Hussars���a  Kitchener man and au Irishman  well under forty years of age. It  is an enviable thing to go down to  posterity as the man who relieved  Baden-Powell.  Colonel Mahon received his commission in January, 1S83, and was  gazetted to the Twenty-first, Hussars. A month later he was transferred to-the Eighth Hussars. He  got his company in-1888, and was  and was adjutant to his regiment  from 1890 to; 1893, gaining, great  praise for his tact and capacity for  work. He won his majority in  1897. - .-/'._    V  He was transferred to the Egyptian army in 1896, served as staff  officer to sir Herbert Kitchener in  the Dongola expedition of that  year, and took part in the operations of June 7th and September  19th at Pirket and Ilafir.  He was mentioned in despatches  and received the Distinguished Service order and the Egyptian medal  with two clasps. He served iu the  Nile expedition of 1897-9S, aud was  present at the battles of Atbara  and Khartoum: he was mentioned in  despatches, and was promoted to  the rank of brevet-lieutonant-colo-  nel. Those services brought him  three more 'clasps to his Egyj)biaii  3 medal. *   -     ��  Xext year, 1899, colonel Mahon  was still on the Nile, taking his part  in the operations which terminated  in the final destruction of the Khalifa. Perhaps the best work he  ever did in the Soudan was not-  longer ago thair January this year,  when acting as A. A. C��, and being  at the same time in charge of the  intelligence department of the Soudan.  Sir Reginald TVingato, fearing  that Ahmed Fedil might join the  Khalifa, lost no time in despatching  colonel Mahon in command of the  cavalry, camel corps, four Maxims.  four field guns, and some irregular  Sudanese battalions to intercept  him and hold him till he came up  wibh the main forces.  This colonel Mahon accomplished  raosb successfully. Sir Reginald  Wingate, reporting to lord Kitchener afterwards, wrote :  '_ l_I_cftmiot_speak_iu.sufficiently-  strong terms of the excellence of  bhe services performed by this  officer. I invariably placed him in  geueral command of all the  mounted troops; his personal  disregard for danger, intrepid  scouting, and careful handling  of men, all _ fit him for  high command��� his bold and .successful seiy.uie of< the position in  front of Kcdii's camp, and liis conduct of tho fight before I came up.  show him to be possessed of exceptional qualities as a commander,  and I have the greatest pleasure in  recommending this valuable officer  to your favorable consideration."  Lord Kitchener evidently did not  forget, and lo him is probably due  the fact,that colonel Mahon was selected to relieve Mafeking. Colonel  Mahon is a typical Irish officer,  cheery and kind in manner* and is  idolized iu the rOnglish Hussars.  Like most soldiers who have gained  distinction as cavalry leaders, he is  a great sportsman. He is a first-  class gentleman jockey, and has  scored many triumphs between the  flags. He is likewise a keen rider  to hounds.  It is a happy coincidence that  colonel Baden-Powell should be relieved by a brother Hussar.  Birmingham Fixed.  Hamilton Time-.  Birmingham will not blab ; that  was finally decided at Toronto  "Wednesday, May '40, nor will he go  hungry. Ou or before the 1st day  of July proximo, the ex-organiz;ei of  Ontario Conservatives will receive  party named by sir Charles Tupper  all letters and papers in his possession,  which  might be used  to  the  disadvantage  of the  Tory   party.  Nor Avill Birmingham appear before  the corruption commission to give  evidence.    His health will ere long  necessitate   his   residence    in   the  western  states, And,'tis he will be  well provided with means of * up-  port before his departure, he will  have no excuse to return to Canada  before the close of the investigation.  ���-"���Rfrminghretii' Aras-asked by a reporter this evening if this Was true."  He  said    "1   have   no   knowledge  whatever  of any  such settlement.  As far as I am concerned, the dispute    between     the  'Conservative  party and myself stands exactly as  it  did two  weeks  ago.    1   have a  friend at Ottawa, who is acting as  what  might   perhaps  bo   called a  medium between the party and myself, aud he has said nothing whatever regarding regarding any settlement.    The sum named,  $0000,  is  the amount of salary which is in  arrears, besides a small amount of  expenses.    It is four years' salary  at $1500 a year. I shall be very glad  to get the amount.    I only hope the  Conservative party will be honest  enough to .pay what is coming to  me.    I intend to press my claim for  arrears  of  salary  still further, of  course.    I have uo letters to hand  over to them,  nor would  I. make  that part of the settlement if I had  any.    I have been through too many  election trials to keep letters."

Beiili.v, June 13.���A case of military brutality has occurred at  Finkemvalde, Pomerania, resembling the case of lieutenant Von  Prueswitz, who ; was sentenced to  four years' imprisonment in a forb  and to dismissal from tiie army in  the autumn of 1895 for running a  workman through the back with  his sword at Carlsrhue for no' other  reason than that the man, wheu entering the cafe, accidentally pushed  the chair of the lieutenant. In this  instance Herren |Paulberg and  Richard Dallman got into an altercation on the street with several  .officers. One of them drew his  sword. Dallman' seized the weapon  and ran off. The officer ordered  some soldiers who were passing to  pursue the man and recover the  sword. In carrying out the order  the soldiers wounded Dallman seriously, his death ensuing yesterday.'  Thus far no action has been taken  by the authorities.
